Keep the ribcage at least a bit open, I don't mind since it's my own body, but Eigla will probably find it claustrophobic.

EVENTS:

Eigla climbs inside Bigrosa's ribcage, cuddling against her Sword. It's... Quite comfy, actually - The cavity is warm and sheltered from the elements, and Rosa is finally able to return her cuddles with a reasonably human body.

The rain outside grows stronger.


______________


Malia sits and waits. The silence lasts a few minutes, after which she hears someone humming a cheerful song in a distorted, robot-like voice. Then, the grind of metal against metal, and an engine coming to life.

It's all rather ominous, isn't it?


_______________


Klimt tries to move, but he can't. He can turn his head all around - 360 degrees, in fact, which is rather disorienting - but seems firmly rooted in place. His vision also seems a bit distorted, as if he was watching the world through a large fisheye lens.

From the distance, comes a loud roar, then a crashing sound. A gust of wind blasts the fields, and a huge cloud of dust and smoke rises from the city.

Well.
I was waterproof.
Hm.

EVENTS:

Preferring not to brave the impenetrable darkness of the lab, Malia sits down, propping her back against the zombike's flank. The vehicle's onboard radio starts playing a calm accordion song, drowning out the unsettling noises.

This is almost relaxing, in a way. She feels a bit sleepy.


___________________


Rosa extends her hand out of the ribcage, letting the pouringr ain fall on it. The back of her hand, slightly grey from sharkskin, is still impervious, but the palm...

With a start, she pulls her hand out instinctively, feeling a mild numbness in her fingers. Seems like the humanity she gained came with a few drawbacks, after all.


___________________



Klimt continues to watch. The vast open plain, the fortress in the center - It does remind him of Le Refuge, yes. Could this be what the ash wastes once were?

A deafening roar echoes through the fields, and a gargantuan shape appears amid the city - Not as big as the Pillar Man, but still rivaling the nearby skyscrapers in height. Like a gigantic antideluvian eel, it rears its head then smashes it down onto a building, all but breaking the concrete structure in half.

For a few minutes, the creature continues its rampage, dozens of anciliary tentacles surfacing through the city, like worms breaking through soft mulch. A few of them actually extend out through the fields, entangling miles worth of land in mere seconds, as if real time had become a timelapse video of a tree's root system.

Then, there is a dot of light - A shooting star, flying down towards the city with a long trail of white smoke. Then a blinding flash, and another shockwave, this one accompanied by the apocalyptic sight of a mushroom cloud expanding where the city once stood. The nearby figures fall over, the fields catch on fire. Everything goes dark.

"Hm. This body is water sensitive again.
That is, comforting, in a way."
