    Island of Junk
    Suu, Cage, Amanita, Rohan, Torgue

    Some time had passed since the events of Carcosa. Yam had been defeated, Pavi behind so much red tape that even Torgue couldn't get to him without pissing off the heads of the world, and a lot of surgery. Torgue's right arm had to undergo much reconstructive surgery since his clash with Cran Yam. He was supposed to wait longer and finish out his physical therapy, but the news of one of Torgue's most hated enemies being on the moon was nothing he was going to pass up. He would finish his physical therapy on the go. By ending Blank.

    Blank. The deranged psychotic robot that killed his grandmother. Every time Torgue thought about the robot his blood boiled. His right arm, fully fixed and ready to go, was still wrapped in bandages to protect the scars. Even though Torgue had sped through his recovery, his primary care physician (which just so happened to be Juri) kept insisting to not go all out on physical activity. These orders fell on non caring ears.

    Torgue made landing on the island and stepped out of the Badassasaurus. The giant metal T-Rex was also repaired after the events of Carcosa, and was back to being fully functional. But Torgue's prized weapon of the fleet wouldn't be making the trip to the moon.


    "Head back to Marineford and assist Juri in any tasks necessary. Sorry my fourth most favorite thing in the world - we're not going together this time."

    "COMMAND RECEIVED. VICE ADMIRAL JURI INSISTED THAT I REMIND YOU TO REFER TO VICE ADMIRAL SUU ON ANY MATTER PERTAINING TO YOUR HEALTH FOR THIS MISSION. YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS ARE BEING FORWARDED TO HER NOW."

    "I DON'T NEED ANYMORE F(bleep)CKING BABYSITTING!!"

    "ACKNOWLEDGED. TERMINATING 'BABYSITTING' PROTOCOL."

    That last comment by Badassasaurus was an actual joke. There was no 'Babysitting' protocol, but Torgue had a special bond with his giant metal T-rex. Badassasaurus turned and took off, leaving Torgue on the island. The Fleet Admiral continued on to the training to meet up with his fellow marines and Brodella. The Bromander in chief was one of Torgue's favorite people, because he was a badass.

    Torgue was seemingly the last of the marine party to arrive at the junk island. The rocket was in its final preparation stages, as he could see walking past it on his way to the training room. Several other marines were there that were going on the mission to the moon as well. The roster included some new faces that Torgue didn't know, but they each were selected for a reason. Torgue more so...convinced his higher ups that letting him go to the moon was in their best interests. And now here he was.

    There were officers familar and unfamiliar to Torgue. Cage and Suu were both faces Torgue knew, for they helped in the Badass Tourney some time back. Good times. The first of the new marines to come clamoring to Torgue was a lieutenant. He really wanted to shake the Fleet Admiral's hand, and was clamoring up to do just that. He saluted Torgue, but before the Fleet Admiral could respond he was interrupted by another marine vying for his attention. A young woman, a captain with brown hair fought to stand next to him, but the excitement was too much for her. She swooned the second she stood next to him, and fell into him. Torgue caught her, but when she looked into his eyes she didn't see romance. Probably because he was wearing his sunglasses. But there wasn't much to say for the expression in his eyes. He just seemed...off. Torgue stood Amanita back up and told her to drink more water or she'd be dehydrated, and the marines continued on.

    All marines going on the mission the following day were present, all including: Lieutenant Amuro (Rohan), Captain Amanita, Rear Admiral Cage, Vice Admiral Suu, and Torgue himself. Brodella was going over the specifics of what they would need to know, how to react in zero gravity and the vacuum of space, so on and so forth. Torgue listened, because it was repeatedly drilled into his head that if he went overboard on fighting he could doom all of his comrades. So, for the sake of his marines, Torgue listened. Two new mechanics were added to the group - Kenny and Justine. Both of whom were masked and remained a mystery, but not one that Torgue concerned himself with.

    The others introduced themselves formally and started asking questions about the specifics of the mission. Ray and Amanita were the ones that caught on to a detail that they suspected they were looking for something on the moon base. Cage was still on about making Blank pay some unknown debt. Torgue sat in his chair, arms crossed over his chest, and brooding.


    "That murderous pile of bolts and sh(bleep)t will die. Nothing else matters."

    The Man on the Moon - The Start of Something Gloriously Terrible
    Suu - Cage - Amanita - Rohan - Torgue

    The day was fast approaching for the Marines to make a colossal step for mankind. They were leaving the planet and headed straight for the natural satellite in the sky, the moon. The team picked for this mission could easily be described as the elites of the World Government. One such person picked was also the first on site for the mission. The new Head of the Air divisions, following Brodela's promotion and transfer, Vice Admiral Suu had been deeply involved in the creation of the rocket. Her staff from the S.S. Flint, the helicarrier that she commanded, were on hand to help in all outlets of the rocket's construction.

    With being the first one on hand, and being intimately involved in the creation process of the rocket, Suu would also know of the list of people who would board the rocket and head to the moon. There were some names she knew, others she did not. Amanita is an unkown to the Vice Admiral. From the reports, Suu would know she is a captain who shows much potential. Amuro was a lieutenant who showed much promise and would be recommended by people higher up on the chain. Most knew very little about him, but his papers checked out.

    Then came the faces Suu knew.First was the recently promoted Rear Admiral Cage. Suu and Cage and worked together on a couple of events. First of all was the Badass Tourney where they worked to thwart the plot of Holloween. Suu was thrown by Cage, it was a good time. The other major event was when Cage and Suu fought on the same side against Admiral Luthor. Needless to say, they were well enough acquainted. Then there was the face every marine knew. Fleet Admiral Torgue. This man is at the top of the marines, he had worked his way up the ranks and become the fleet Admiral. Though Suu didn't just know him by status. Torgue was the one hosting the Badass Tourney. Because she helped thwart Holloween, Suu also got to meet the big man himself.

    Lastly there was Kenny and Justine, two men Suu would not know, but Brodela gave em the okay, so she wouldn't worry about it. The team was assembled and given a brief training session. If one were to think about it too much, they'd realize it was worryingly lacking in details. The marines were going in mostly blind. They didn't know what Blank had in his base, but all likely knew it wasn't good. Finally the group would end up in one final room with an oval table.

    Introductions were handled here, and one such person would ask to shake Suu's hand. The Vice Admiral would comply with a smile and shake Amura's hand. He would feel like his hand just got plunged into a bucket of water, which might be the reason Amanita would decline the hand shake from Amuro, slimey hand. Folders were present for those involved the thumb through. Suu would grab one and look through it as she listened to Brodela. They plan was simple, land in the cafeteria, find Blank, dispense justice, or was it? Amanita would ask why we wouldn't just bomb the base, Amuro would ask how they were going to slip pass defenses, Cage would be talking about someone paying what he owes, and Torgue would seem out of sorts.

    How will we stay in contact? Do snails work on the moon?

    Suu's question was actually two-fold, though Brodela might not catch it. Suu was pretty simple in speech. She was asking both how they would stay in contact with mission control on earth, and how they would keep contact with each other should they get split up in the moon base. An important thing to know, surely.

    The first to speak, Ray would open with the most basic but true question: what if this thing was attacked? The room would silent, just enough for Brodela to take a puff and then shoot a finger at Ray.

    "Hah. Good question, bro."

    Brodela would never answer the question. A awkward silence would take the room, if only a moment, before Ama would begin to speak.

    "Woah. Bro. Why didn't we just send bombs at it..."

    Amanita's question would darken Brodela's face. A morose sort of air took the man, and it was clear he was suddenly saddened. That sadness was felt in the room, only for it to suddenly change to a certain rage. A passionate spat.

    "Alright. Everyone. Go home. We'll just bomb it. SO UNCOOL! YOU HAVE THE WORST FRIENDS, TORGUE."

    Brodela would slam a fist down on the table, denting the wood and steel it was made from. Torgue was implicated as the fault, for Ama was his marine. An anger of an insult was strewn across Brodela's face, as if someone had insulted his mother. A voice would chime in, the woman Julia taking Brodela's temperament into account.

    "If I may inject, we have no way of confirming the robotic menace, Blank, would be destroyed. The moon is an expensive undertaking, is it not? We could bomb the moon, then send investigators, all the while the robot festers while losing Celestial funding. Why not be direct and ensure... the kill?"

    "My god, bro, you are right! Don't go home!"

    Calming down at the implication that the moon should just be bombarded instead of invaded in an awesome campaign of awesomeness, Julia did have a point. Bombs were great, but confirmation was cheaper. Torgue and Cage both would chime in, and it was clear that they had vendettas they wanted to settle. Merely destroying the base would not quench either of the two's thirst.

    A final question came from Suu. Snail tech was powerful, but Brodela would only scour his brows. Twas' a hard question for the man, with his answer being vague.


    "Well, we frankly don'y know if you can bro out on snail comms. We got some loaded up, so we are going to experiment, BRO!"

    Not much else would come with an answer. Brodela would stand, rising, only to dismiss the group and wish for them all a good rest. The next day was going to be a rough one, as Brodela still said nothing about what would happen if they were all attached. Will-full ignorance was bliss.

    "You are all going to reach the stars on the S.S.T Brotalius! Negative Nancy's need not apply!"


    Launch
    The belts to each of their harnesses inside the ship were something of simplistic design. Suits, each given, were bare and basic white things with black straps and fishbowl helmets. Air and jet dials lined each suit, and a heat dial was in the buttocks section for warmth. Air to last for weeks, jets to propel one's self, and something alien in design was enough to satiate most of the now-made astronauts. Indeed, everyone aboard the ship was now an official astronaut, ready to go to the moon.

    The ship itself was spacious inside, with plenty of wall mounted seats of all sizes. A giant could even fit, if that was what was needed. The main bridge, where the controls to fly the craft, would seat Suu and Julia, the two prime engineers. Torgue, Cage, Ama, and Rohan were seated in the center most of the ship, with Kenny and Justine taking the edge. There was a door, leading to a back room, filled with supplies and parts. The return trip was planned for, as Brodela promised. It was just getting there that was difficult.

    The crew would see the outside as a large rocket, though blunt at its top. Bland for colors, the rocket was plenty massive, able to hold more than its appearance let on. Fuel, thrust, spare parts; all ready for launch. A countdown began, eyes forward at the moon as it was moving across the sky. Plans were set for hitting it square, and a countdown began. Tension rose, anxiety plateu'd, and the rocket would rumble with lift off. All aboard were on their way to the moon, and their goal was reaching closer and closer in sight. Earth was soon left, and the crew was truly in space. Only hours until landing, or so the rockets could do and the gauges said.

    A blast of yellow would shine from the front of the rocket as Julia pressed a button. Rods would rise, ever so slightly from the rocket, and a glowing yellow field would take the ship. A field of light energy; a defense mechanism.


    "Right. The light director is online. Brodela failed to mention it, as he is not the engineer behind it. So long as we are moving into solar radiation, this shield will keep us safe."

    "Blank will also be unable to see us, nyo~" spoke out Justine, looking at his shoes while he did.

    "Hrm? Why is that, Justine?" responded Julia, actual surprise and worry in her voice.

    "I placed a signal dampener that he cannot read. I know he cannot, so we will be fine."

    Julia, next to Suu, would speak about a defense mechanism in play. The light that now surrounded the ship could deflect laser discharges, among other things. Blank, a known robot and user of laser technology, was bound to have defenses as Rohan/Ray pointed out. This would ensure survival... so long as they moved.

    Justine would speak out, though, taking more a role than expected. A signal jammer was in place, making the crew invisible to Blank's own personal radar, though this came as a shock. Neither Suu nor Julia, given her surprise, knew about this. Kenny, from his chair, would speak out to Justine.


    "Hey. You were supposed to be quiet. Like, secret." said the worried Kenny. Somethings were not supposed to be said.

    "Nyo~ It is better they know now."

    "Opa. You are a show off worse than me."

    Justine would turn to face the front, having been staring intently at his feet until this moment. Suu and Julia would be forced to turn to face him, their chairs spinning in place. Well, not forced, but Julia did press the button. Something was happening, some sort of tension most thick.

    "We are about to breach the moon, and you have just told us you made changes to our ship?"

    "Nyo~"

    "Er. Yes. I think that noise means yes."

    A shake would jostle the ship. Something interrupted its course. Suu would be the first to see the red lights warning that something was firing upon them all. The shield was good, but the dampener was... not. It was up to Suu to decide how to pilot ever close to the moon, as Julia stared fire upon the tampering Justine.

    Amanita - Briefing - MoM

    Amanita's question, though perfectly logical, was met with shouting and disappointment by General Brodela. It appears the general had not consider the idea of bombing the base, and was blaming Ama for ruining his fun. He was pointing at shouting at Torgue. This was bad. Her chances with her future husband were being ruined! She didn't know what she would do if he rejected her. Would it have to be a suicide pact? Would she have to poison everyone in the room? That'd be bad for her career, but if Torgue would blame her, this would be the end of her life as she knew it! She made a decision! Everyone would have to die. 5...4...3...2...

    "If I may inject, we have no way of confirming the robotic menace, Blank, would be destroyed. The moon is an expensive undertaking, is it not? We could bomb the moon, then send investigators, all the while the robot festers while losing Celestial funding. Why not be direct and ensure... the kill?"

    "My god, bro, you are right! Don't go home!"

    Nevermind. Amanita sighed deeply, eyeing the people around her. Her marriage was secure, for now at least. Suu's question regarding the snails would pull the attention away from Amanita; thank goodness. The answer would not be very motivating unfortunately. There was no way of knowing whether or not communicating on the moon was going to be a problem. Brodella informed the crew that the rocket they were boarding was to be the S.S.T. Brotalius.

    The next day

    It was the day of the launch. Amanita had been preparing both mentally and physically. She stood outside the launching area, smoking a cigarette. She looked up into the sky. Somewhere, up there, was a maniacal robot mass murderer threatening the world, and they would have to be the ones to take him out. She took another drag. This was going to be quite the challenge. She went back inside and changed into her spacesuit. She disliked the way it looked. It wasn't flattering at all. How was she supposed to seduce anyone without showing her curves, let alone a man like Torgue.

    "Tsk... not even cute."

    Once aboard the rocket, Amanita was surprised at the massive size of the thing. She was quite impressed with the work done by the technical and airforce divisions, she had to admit. Vice Admiral Suu and Julia would be on the bridge of the ship, for they were the ones best-acquainted with its inner workings. Amanita was more than fine with sitting in the middle. Naturally, she sought a spot opposite Torgue, so she could look at him the entire flight. How joyous would that be! Their eyes would meet, and he would think she was the most wonderful woman in the world, and then he would naturally propose underneath the light of an explosion caused by their destruction of the moonbase.

    "KYA!~ How wonderful that would be..."

    Amanita was abruptly ripped from her imagination by a fasten seatbelts sign, followed by a countdown. It was time for launch. Amanita strapped herself in, clenching her hands into fists. She was nervous, as any should be when going on a monumental journey like this one. Before long, they had left the earth behind. Amanita had calmed down, but still refused to not tightly hold on to her seat. There wasn't even time for looking at Torgue. This was all too frustrating for her. She felt powerless like this. Little did she know, her anxiety was not misplaced, for in the bridge, things were looking bad, though how they would handle that was up to Suu and Julia.

    Rohan - Briefing/Launch - first hurdle

    Ray would scan the room with his eyes, frantically searching if someone would answer his question. The young man would sigh and sit down when the marine captain quickly followed after him. Her question had a lot more effect on Brodela than Ray's which weirdly enough lifted his spirits a bit. The meeting went back and forth between the parties present there. Questions were vaguely answered and if they were not they were simply ignored Ray shrugged as he went to his private quarters. The young man had to prepare for the big day tomorrow.


    Launch


    Ray had donned the space suit he was given and from the first looks of it it was rather basic in design and craft. Jet dials allowed for movement in zero g and the heat dial on his but was simply for warmth. The only thing Ray worried about was the fish like bowl that went on his head, would this thing endure a hit to it? The young man shook his head as he wasn't willing to try it out anytime soon. The doors to the craft went open prompting Ray to open his mouth in wonder. The first real space craft and he was on it there was also a lot of room in this place, they could've even taken a giant with them if they wished.

    When Ray entered the craft he'd see Suu and Julia at the front making them pilot and co-pilot respectively. While they had some time for launch the young man placed his somewhat larger bag on one of the empty side seats and locked it in place with a seat belt. The hidden package was inside as well as some new clothes while the young man locked it in place he took out some random items from it. He took a wrench, screwdriver, blowtorch with its gas tank in a side pocket. And last but not least a bento box. Ray by showing these items figured no one would question why he had that bag with him as it carried basic supplies and also some lunch. Lunch his 'mother' made for him. Unaware how liquids acted in zero g. But that was the point of making it all seem real to the others. After going through the items he'd put them back, showing the others he was going through his supplies one final time. Afterwards he'd lock his bag in place and Ray would do the same with himself, sitting at the seat next to his bag.

    Then the moment finally happened, the launch itself. With each number dropping from the countdown Ray was getting anxious. When the rocket finally made lift off Ray braced himself for the massive presssure on his body. The young man was barely able to endure it but the worst of the launch quickly faded as the craft went into a cruiser like state, allowing for the crew to look around. Soon Ray heard some of the crew talking about a signal dampener, making sure Blank would not see them coming until it'd be far too late.

    Justine and Kenny would have a conversation between each other, talking about secrecy and last minute. Ray felt the ship shake and would notice red lights blinking and figured this couldn't be good news. However he remained calm and quiet for now. Unaware to the other crew members Ray started his mantra, testing how haki worked within deep space. It was never tested before and he wasn't 100 percent sure it'd work. But for now Ray's mastered mantra would ping, wondering if he could see what was happening outside.

    Cage - Briefing

    Cage was ready to go now. He cared not for safety precautions and communications tech. No, he had one goal in mind; Smash the Bot Bastard until he pays what he owe. Regardless, the brute was forced to suffer through the briefing, so he attempted to listen to what he could. Long story short,
    he didn't learn ****. Any question worthwhile, was either ignored or vaguely answered with such ambiguity, that it was better off ignored. The only thing that was said that caught Cage's attention, came from Fleet Admiral Torgue, who too was on a mission to destroy Blank. Cage, once again, nodded his head in agreement toward Torgue. Despite being a crazy exploding bastard, Torgue was a good guy, and Cage respected that. That and his promotion made him rethink the marines, while others like Luthor made him doubt them. Though now is not the time for a moral dilemma or career decision. It was time for Cage to get his $200. Once the briefing was over, Cage made his way to his quarters, but would stop to talk to Torgue before that.

    "Hey Brotha... I mean... Fleet Admiral Brotha." Cage spoke, attempting to get Torgue's attention. He wasn't good with formalities and authority, hence his whole experience in jail before becoming a marine. "We might be the only one's ready to pull the trigga on that jive sucka Blank; and I'm down with that. I'm just there to make sure ol' boy pay what he owe, ya dig?? After that, we can crush that mark ass fool asap."

    Whether Togue would understand what Cage said through the slang and the jargon would be unknown. All Cage knew was, he and Torgue had a similar notion regarding Blank, and that he supported Torgue's conquest to destroy Blank. The brute would make it to his bed shortly after the exchange, laying on bedspread made from Delilah notes, and letting the crinkling of the papers nurse him to sleep.

    Cage - Launch

    Go time Suckas... It was the day of the launch, and the members would be fitted in space-suits of varying sizes. Cage, being quite a large man, was neglectful that they'd have room for him, but he'd be proved otherwise. The ship itself was quite roomy, with Julia and Suu at the helm of it all. Suu would be piloting the ship, which was something Cage could trust. She was good with air travel, Cage had seen it first hand, since he once threw her. Afterward, it was time for Cage, Ray, Amanita, Torgue, and the masked weirdos to board. Cage took the first seat available to him for two reasons. One, he's black. He ain't gone sit in the back of a spacecraft, or any vehicle for that matter. Two, he was large. He needed elbow room and ****. Ain't no brother his size getting stuck in the middle.

    The others would board. Amanita, the Stalker, would attempt to sit across from Torgue. Ray, fiddled with a bag of supplies for some time before strapping in. Cage paid no mind. He didn't care bout what no one else had. He just wanted his $200. When all were seated and ready, the countdown for launch would begin. Cage counted in his head. 10 seconds before he pay what he owe. 9 seconds before he pay what he owe. 8 seconds before he pay what he owe. And so on and so fourth. The brute really did have a one track mind concerning this. He had waited quite some time to get to this point. Ever since he was a Captain, he's been gunning for Blank.

    Liftoff occurred, and all would brace for impact as they'd break through the atmosphere onward to the moon. Cage was fine in that regard, he was used to extreme pressures. Julia would initiate a shield of some sort, and the mystery masks would speak of tampering with it somehow. Cage didn't understand much, as tech **** wasn't his jive, but he knew something, these masked fellows were shady. He had a suspicion who the female one was, but for now he'd keep himself as reserved as he could. Red lights and warning alarms went off, as something had gone wrong.

    "I'm tellin you suckas now, if **** goes south on this mug. I'm takin y'all out. And no, this ain't no jive as dinner date. Only date y'al be having is a date with death." Cage declared, pointing back toward Justine and Kenny. They were too odd to be trusted, especially now with the ship possibly being under attack. Cage would keep an eye on them, but still, his focus was on getting what he was owed.

Tension rose, anxiety plateu'd, and the rocket would rumble with lift off. All aboard were on their way to the moon, and their goal was reaching closer and closer in sight. Earth was soon left, and the crew was truly in space. Only hours until landing, or so the rockets could do and the gauges said.

    A blast of yellow would shine from the front of the rocket as Julia pressed a button. Rods would rise, ever so slightly from the rocket, and a glowing yellow field would take the ship. A field of light energy; a defense mechanism.


    "Right. The light director is online. Brodela failed to mention it, as he is not the engineer behind it. So long as we are moving into solar radiation, this shield will keep us safe."

    "Blank will also be unable to see us, nyo~" spoke out Justine, looking at his shoes while he did.

    "Hrm? Why is that, Justine?" responded Julia, actual surprise and worry in her voice.

    "I placed a signal dampener that he cannot read. I know he cannot, so we will be fine."

    Julia, next to Suu, would speak about a defense mechanism in play. The light that now surrounded the ship could deflect laser discharges, among other things. Blank, a known robot and user of laser technology, was bound to have defenses as Rohan/Ray pointed out. This would ensure survival... so long as they moved.

    Justine would speak out, though, taking more a role than expected. A signal jammer was in place, making the crew invisible to Blank's own personal radar, though this came as a shock. Neither Suu nor Julia, given her surprise, knew about this. Kenny, from his chair, would speak out to Justine.


    "Hey. You were supposed to be quiet. Like, secret." said the worried Kenny. Somethings were not supposed to be said.

    "Nyo~ It is better they know now."

    "Opa. You are a show off worse than me."

    Justine would turn to face the front, having been staring intently at his feet until this moment. Suu and Julia would be forced to turn to face him, their chairs spinning in place. Well, not forced, but Julia did press the button. Something was happening, some sort of tension most thick.

    "We are about to breach the moon, and you have just told us you made changes to our ship?"

    "Nyo~"

    "Er. Yes. I think that noise means yes."

    A shake would jostle the ship. Something interrupted its course. Suu would be the first to see the red lights warning that something was firing upon them all. The shield was good, but the dampener was... not. It was up to Suu to decide how to pilot ever close to the moon, as Julia stared fire upon the tampering Justine.
    The Night Before

    Questions were asked, one after another. The first question, about the ship's defenses, would be kindly swept under the rug and forgotten. The second question would stir some ire. The marines COULD simply bomb the base. It was possible, mission called off, time to go home. No adventures today. That is until Julia would interject that it would be better to confirm a kill, rather than hope. The mission was back on, and Amanita should be ashamed for bringing logic into things. Finally was Suu's question. There would be no sure answer,
    no one knew how space and snails interacted. With all that out of the way, the meeting was adjourned and off to bed the team would go.


    Launch Day!

    Today was the day of the launch. Suu was up and awake first. She was bouncing with excitement. Going to space was going to be the greatest of fun for the slime, despite all the peril involved with the whole ordeal. Everyone else's suits were pretty basic, because they didn't think to break into the suit storage and decorate their suit. Suu's was red and black, with a strange logo on the chest. It still had the same shape as everyone else's uniforms, and functionality wise it was the same, but the color scheme was different.

    Suu and Julia were first aboard the rocket, doing launch preparations. The rocket was modest on the outside, blunt nosed and large. On the inside was spacious, able to fit a giant comfortably. Before long, all were present in the craft, with Julia and Suu in the front. Suu was literally bouncing in her seat with excitement. 10, going to space. 9, wanna go to space. 8, SPAAAACE! and on she thought. The countdown hit one and the rocket would blast off into the sky. Before long they were breaching the atmosphere. The moon drew ever nearer.

    The defense mechanism would activate as they moved. All systems were operational, even the dampener... What Dampener? There was no dampener in the blueprints. chairs would turn to face Justine and Kenny, and they would see a face none had ever witnessed before. The slime stared daggers at them, as though they had committed some mortal injustice against her personally. Four words would escape from the slime.

    Don't touch Suu's rocket!

    And then came the jostling and red lights. They were approaching the moon, but it was not smooth sailing. They were being fired upon by something. This is when Suu would take command. The slime would spring into action and take over manual control of the ship. A flick of a switch and music would begin blaring inside the rocket. The rocket was on a metaphorical highway to the proverbial Danger Zone. With Suu now in direct control of the space craft, she would initiate evasive maneuvers. A quick dive down (there is no "down" in space, but it is down from Suu's perspective.) followed by a bank to the right would be performed in order to avoid whatever was firing upon them. Suu would continue evasive maneuvers as needed, while still keeping the rocket moving toward the moon, albeit at a slower pace, seeing as they were no longer going in a straight line.

    Number 2, man the defenses!

    Suu would say, as though she were some sort of start fleet captain, though she did mean it. She wanted Julia to take care of defensive measures while she handled the evasive ones. Come hell or high water, they were making it to the moonbase.

    The Night Before

    Brodella did his best to answer the questions posed to him appropriately, but Amanita was the one who almost broke the whole campaign with logic. Why send a crew to the moon when you could just blow up the whole base? Torgue was ready to answer that question himself - because he wanted the satisfaction of killing Blank himself. The rest of the conversation went rather smoothly after that, and everyone present retired for the night.

    Before Torgue made it back to his assigned quarters, he would have the time to bump into Cage. A man of stature, much like himself, only Torgue had no idea what Cage had recently been through. Maybe it was Torgue's nature, or maybe it was because he was busy dealing with his recovery and physical therapy these past few months. At any rate, Cage recognized that the two had a common goal - the one that included the destruction of Blank.


    "THAT'S FLEET ADMIRAL MR TORGUE TO YOU!!" Torgue interjected so as to correct Cage. At any rate, Cage affirmed that he respected Torgue's goal of wanting to kill Blank, and that he too had his own vendetta against the robot. Torgue gave Cage a nod of approval before heading off to his quarters to retire. Though some people would have no events happening, one person in particular received a message that was for them to do with at their disclosure.

    Spoiler: For Suu specifically
    When the slime retired to her quarters, she would find that she had a new message for her. A letter from Marineford, stamped and sealed with the official emblem of the World Government. Inside would be records, specifically medical records on the Fleet Admiral. Torgue's health information was all there for her to know. With it was a letter addressed to her.

    Suu,

    I hope this package makes it to you in time before everyone leaves for the journey to the moon. Disclosed in this envelope you will find the medical records and most recent updates of Mr Torgue's health information. Since I am not there to ensure his health, I send these to you in regard that I trust you to treat him in my place should the need arise. I also have a personal request.

    I am not at liberty to disclose the full details, but ever since the events that took place at Carcosa...Torgue hasn't been the same. Physically speaking, he's perfectly healthy. It's his mental health that worries me. He hasn't shown his explicit enthusiasm for Justice and all things badass like he usually does. In fact, I fear that the only thing that he's able to justify doing himself at this point is going to the moon to get his revenge on Blank. And even that I suspect is for the wrong reasons. I suspect that he's doing this in order to reaffirm a sense of identity, that he is the badass who he says he is. I fear to think what would happen to him if he's unable to accomplish his own goal...

    I implore you, Torgue cannot be allowed to fail. If he does, he may suffer a blow to his pride and ego that he may not ever be able to recover from. If he does, then we may be lost without our leader.

    In Confidence,
    Kamamuri Juri
    Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral




    The Launch

    Everyone adjourned at the rocket that was to be the odyssey for their space journey. The rocket itself was simple and humble. It had a specific design to get the party to the moon and back in one piece. Though the defenses of Blank's moon base were questionable on the rocket, the space pioneers didn't really have much of a choice at this point. The rocket was set to launch, and the astronauts had to be on it to make the journey.

    "NEEDS MORE GIANT METAL T-REX!!"

    Torgue made his opinion of the rocket known. He would have much rather outfitted his Badassasaurus for the mission, but he was not consulted on such issues. Perhaps that was planned. Perhaps Brodella and the others didn't want a giant metal T-rex in space. Maybe they didn't want the only mode of transportation to be a highly known warship of the Marines. Torgue didn't know, that's for sure. The space suits were simple as well, built to function so that everyone could survive in space with their own oxygen. At least there was a butt warming function. That was a luxury that was going to be so highly coveted in the vacuum of space.

    Torgue and the others strapped themselves into their seats and prepared for lift off. Suu and Julia sat at the front of the rocket, with Suu being the captain of the vessel. Everyone else sat at the middle of the rocket, with Torgue being in the middle. Amanita continued to swoon over the Fleet Admiral because of her non stop daydreams, all of which Torgue was oblivious to. The rocket took off, racing through the atmosphere of Earth and into the vast expanse of space. It would take some time, but after a few hours or so the rocket was closing in on the moon. And specifically, the moon base. The rockets defenses were reaffirmed by Julia, and Justine confirmed that his dampener was working. Except that there wasn't supposed to be a dampener. This immediately made Justine a suspicious lot.

    The rocket was under attack only a few seconds after the mention of Justine's addition. Suu took the controls and started on evasive maneuvers while ordering Julia to take over defensive measures. The rocket dipped and weaved to evade the incoming laser fire while Justine went back to staring at his feet. Something was off about him, even more so now than when he was initially introduced. But speculations would have to wait, because Cage was threatening Justine and Kenny. Torgue was visibly clenched - things were getting out of control already, and he wasn't doing anything to hold it together. He was about to, quite literally, explode, but then Suu flipped the switch and potentially saved everyone from Torgue.

    Danger Zone.

    Torgue took a moment to listen to one of his most favorite songs. The theme of riding right into danger and having a blast while doing it. That song was so incredibly badass that it inspired Mr Torgue to act like his normal self for a moment. He took


    "EVERYBODY SHUT UP!! SHUT THE F(bleep)CK UP EVERYBODY AND CALM THE F(bleep)CK DOWN!! Have no fear, I have a plan! You two!" Torgue addressed Justine and Kenny "Y'all go topside on top of the rocket, AND SHIELD THE ROCKET WITH YOUR BODIES, THEN THE REST OF US CAN LAND ON THE MOON, FIND THE EVIL MURDEROUS ROBOT, PROCEED TO KILL IT BY PUNCHING IT MANY TIMES UNTIL IT DIES, RETURN TO THE ROCKET AND THEN GO HOME TO HAVE BADASS COCKTAILS!! SLIME GIRL!" Torgue now addressed Suu "Continue evasive maneuvers! YOU'RE AWESOME, KEEP THAT SH(bleep)T UP!! Cage, YOU CONTINUE BEING BLACK!! FINALLY...umm..." When it came to Amanita, Torgue totally didn't pay attention to who she was during the briefing. He also was completely thick headed, which made him oblivious to her actions of being in love with him. If no one reminded him of Amanita' name, he would just continue. "...right. YOU BUST OUT A FACEMELTING AND REALITY BREAKING GUITAR SOLO WHEN IT COMES ON!! EVERYONE ON BOARD WITH THIS PLAN?!?"

    The rocking fo the ship would shake the crew inside, and the report would come out that the ship was under fire. Dampener or no, Justine's efforts had failed before they began. To confirm, Rohan would utilize his mantra, looking outside the ship... to see the void of space. Or feel, technically. The solar shield was working, but there was definitely an attack as it recuperated. Another strike would hit the ship, seemingly from a laser blast. Whether mantra could detect that was a good question, but it did not matter, for Ray knew.

    Suu would take command, her chair spinning back to face forward. Her message was sent to Kenny and Justine, both of whom had their heads down in shame. Music blared, and Suu could see ahead the moon had a glinting yellow light. Blasts of light, from moon mounted laser batteries,
    were firing upon the ship. The detection was almost instantaneous. Julia joined, being forced to spin around by the chair she was bound in.


    "There are no defense systems! Either it is fuel or bombs! THANKS, AMANITA! BRODELA LISTENED." Julia said, both accusingly and with annoyance.

    Indeed, Brodela made last minute changes to the ship. Those documents were not recorded for either Suu or Julia, but Julia was luckily informed right outside the shuttle doors. In the event everyone failed, the rocket ship was a bomb. A bomb of fuel and death. This was in reaction to Amanita's suggestion of just blowing up everything from afar. To everyone's luck, the solar shield was not removed, and it would allow Suu to take clips from lasers. A full on blast was devastating, to say the least, if she so failed.

    Cage and Torgue would begin to get anxious, with Cage damning Kenny and Justine for making modifications. Torgue would attempt to calm the crew down with a speech, saying that the two extra baggage at the end of the vessel to act as meat puppets and take a blast for their country and nation. No one would remind him of Ama's name.

    A click would sound out, and Justine would undo his harness, floating through the ship center. The evasive manuvers would mean he would bump into the roof every now and then, but it made no matter to him. He faced the front of the ship, and it looked like he was taking Torgue's orders to heart.


    "Ba- er, Justine! What are you doing?" said Kenny, worry thick on his accent.

    "Taking orders from a marine, like I used to. Nyo~"

    "Going outside will get you killed! We need you, to, like, confirm Blan-"

    "Do not worry, nyo~. I will stay inside the ship. It will be a fun crash, though."

    Gripping the ceiling, the strange man that was Justine would scuttle across the length of metal and wires, moving awkwardly with his lanky yet puffy body. He'd be right behind the controls, letting go of the ceiling to cross his arms. Suu and Julia could see, right ahead of them, a strange circle appear from nothing ness and, through it, a white metal surface that looked like a roof.

    "There won't be any slowing. Nyo~"

    Lasers went past the hole, but the ship went into it. Suddenly, the entire rocket would shake, violently, as it crashed into the moon base with its fullest force. If someone wasn't buckled in, they would crash into the walls, the force certainly leaving a bruise or a broken bone or worse. For Justine, that was his reward. For those bound, they seat belts would yank their bodies, digging into flesh despite the suits in between, their skulls being jostled underneath their helmets. A massive explosion would shudder the ship once more, and the world would stop moving as senses slowly came to.

    The lights of the ship would immediately turn off, power being crudely destroyed and compromised due to the landing. Red lights, as emergency power turned on, flashed. Air hissed. A whimper came from the heap that made up Justine, but else-wise it seemed the ship was firmly entrenched. Air levels, Suu could read, were normal in the ship. There was air, and nothing was leaking. Looking ahead of herself, as could anyone else with a neck and eyes, they would see a pristine white tiled floor beyond the cockpit's front window panel. It was so very clean, if you ignored the metal and debris.

    Gauges would light up, power stabilizing as systems turned off that acted to protect the main drives of the vessel. Lights flickered on, and Suu could read a prompt that began to spit out readings. The ship was mostly in tact, with life support in question. The outside of the hull's front was in an air rich environment. Should Suu choose to, she could pull a deploy lever. Knowing what it did, the front of the rectangular ship would open like a pyramid fortune teller toy, and the cockpit Suu and Julia were in would bend.

    The rest of the crew, once recovered from the crash, would witness the white floors of the space station as the front cabin opened up and out ward. The ground of the ship was down, and there seemed to be a gravity for the ship. They could feel the ground on their feet and the weight of their bodies return. Through Justine's methods, they made head way into the ship... as expected, given the dossier. The plan was to crash into the ship and dock, though slower.

    The first to seemingly recover as he ripped off his belts was Kenny, bolting towards the crumpled body of Justine that was now on the moon base's white clean floor.


    "Hey! Buddy... buddy! Wake up! I ain't supposed to do this alone." panic'd Kenny, holding Justine up and shaking him gently.

    "B... bag..." Justine said, meekly with wheezing breathes.

    "Right. You need your bag."

    As the scene of Kenny whipping out a paper bag unfolded, the rest of the room was spacious. A lettering on the walls would indicate that this room was a Gaia Viewing Platform, used for looking at the planet and its lines and blues. A beautiful thing if you ignored the space ship sticking out of the wall. Three doors, double, of steel, graced the room. As did white stone benches, a few ferns at every corner, and a table that held brochures. There were only ten brochures, but it was clearly laid out for the crew of this invasion force.

    Blank knew they were coming.

    The inside details showed off a simplistic map of the foundry, simplistic in that it was just a triangle with a down arrow. Much of the installation, it would seem, was underground. A mimic of the Sandy Peaks. The base section they were on had connections to a cafeteria and guest rooms, for who was never specified. What was specified was the three doors. The two left and right were elevators that lead down. The door straight head would explore more of the guest compound.

    Other notes in the brochure would make fun of Torgue's grandmother for being weak. There were two color spreads dedicated to defamation. OTher articles went into detail about a certain man named Dr. Baghead. As per his name, he wore a bag on his head. Blank's brochure would describe the man as "daddy" and how Blank "did not need such weak restraints any more." That "the Toy Soldiers will fall after the World Government was blown to dust."

    If anyone would look back to Justine and Kenny, they would see Justine looked just like Baghead. The armor he wore before was removed, replaced by a white lab coat. The pants he wore were now green slacks, with those poofy raider gear-esque things stripped away. The man was still going in and out of consciousness, probably needing a doctor.

    There was much that could be done now, but the group made it. Three doors, one brochure, Dr. Baghead, Kenny, and so many unknown possibilities.

    Amanita - Crash Landing - MoM

    Torgue gave Amanita orders. She could barely contain her excitement. The Fleet Admiral forgot her name, but she didn't even notice. Music was playing, and she was practicing her air guitar skills. It looked ridiculous, but for the man she loved she would go to any lengths. Humiliation was nothing! Such a leader was Torgue; he kept everyone in line when the situation demanded it. Her love for him grew even larger. In the cockpit however, different decisions were being made. They could not defend, which, for some reason, was being blamed on Amanita. The spore woman threw a scornful look in Julia's direction. She disliked this woman terribly. At this rate, they wouldn't even reach the moon. Suu was yelling at Justine and Kenny for their alterations, Cage was yelling at Justine and Kenny for possibly robbing him of his revenge. Lot of people yelling at Kenny and Justine. Poor Kenny and Justine. Ray seemed to be daydreaming. What a weird boy he was. Justine, regardless of this, ran to the front of the rocket. Just what was he doing? What did he expect to do against these lasers? Was he...

    CRASH

    ...insane? Before Amanita could finish her thought, the ship crashed into the base. The rocket shook violently, sending luggage and anything not nailed down flying through the seating area. Amanita was jostled about in her seat, her belt digging into her legs and chest. Her head was ringing as a firm headache was born. Then everything came to a stop. Loose wires strung about, air hissing and lights flashing. She was still alive. It took her a few moments to regain her senses. She wanted to rub her temples, but the fishbowl helmet on her head prevented that. She counted heads. Everyone was still alive, although... where was Justine? She took off her seatbelt and began walking to the front. Slowly, for her entire body felt bruised.

    Through the bridge's window, she could see a white-tiled floor. Clearly, they had reached their destination... but how? They could barely see the base a moment ago, yet in an instant they closed the distance? Was this Justine's doing? As soon as she could, she would step outside; taking off her spacesuit before doing so and returning to regular marine garb. Her spacesuit she'd put underneath her seat. As soon as the set foot outside; Justine was gone. There was no Justine, only Baghead. Amanita, having no clue as to who this was, just assumed this was his normal look underneath that cumbersome armor. A quick scan of the room determined this area was a place for looking at... the earth? Apparently some folk here got nostalgic every now and then. There were three doors in the room, and the areas to which they led were detailed in brochures on a table nearby. Amanita walked over, taking one of them. There was a lot of information in there, though little was of actual use. They mocked Torgue's grandmother, showed a map of the foundry, and spoke of... Dr Baghead? Did he have something to do with Blank? Amanita wouldn't say a thing, but she turned her direction back towards the scientist formerly known as Justine. Aside from that, she tried to get a look at Torgue; seeing how he was dealing with all of this.
