ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene ThreeYou name is Vriska and you are currently hiking through some god damned forest, looking for some god damned experiments with your god damned partner.
Just look at that little fucker. The sightless bitch is hopping from tree to tree like a god damn earth monkey. You knew lizards were good at climbing and sticking to vertical surfaces, but you wish she wasn't such a fucking show off.
You hate all of this.
You hate how hot the air is. You hate how uncomfortable your new clothes are. You hate how long you've been walking. You hate how you're being guided by the blind one. But most of all you hate
Ever since you started walking you've been picking at it, scratching your neck, running your fingers between the metal and your throat, hoping to widen the gap. It's choking and pinching and downright aggravating! God, you wish you never agreed to wear it!
Could it get any worse? Oh wait, of course it could! You almost forgot that there's a GPS unit sealed inside, tracking yo
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene TwoYour name is Jade and you and your friends have been walking through the forest for quite some time now. You have been on the move ever since the shield surrounding the laboratory was blown up and have not yet dared to rest. You're tired, your friends are tired, but you keep marching on.
Dave and Dirk walk behind you while Rose brings up the rear. You're all silent as you take in all there is to see. The trees in this forest are so strange; bright blue trunks with pink leaves. Or are all trees these colors? You wouldn't know.
You cast a glance back on your friends. Rose walks with her head and tail high and confident. Dirk and Dave walk with their wings outstretched. It probably feels good to actually be able to spread them after being confined for most of their lives.
You begin to wonder why they follow you. Ever turn you make, they copy. Every pace you set, they match. For the first few hours you hadn't even realized you were the leader, but now it seems like you were sile
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene OneThere's more to the Bioengineered Experiments and Testing Accommodations laboratory than meets the eye. To the public it was their generic testing center responsible for the many resources they used and needed day to day. To BETA's inhabitants it was a place of pain and prison center.
But still, these two views were still only on the surface of BETA. People often forget to consider what lies below it foundations, for underneath the BETA laboratory is a mad house of deadly creatures and twisted creations thought only to be found in nightmares. Below the surface is a hell hole of demons, a trench of fiendish beings, a pit of sadistic souls.
And you, Draconic Hybrid Experiment 1025, are one of them.
Mashing your face against the bars of your cage, you inhale deeply, taking in the numerous odors with your super human nose.
"Sssssnnnnnnniiiiiiffffffffffff. Can you smell that, Vriska?" You ask the occupant of the cage next to you as you breathe in. "Tell me you smell it. Tell me you s
Special DeliveryThe mail delivery service was an honorable job. You were responsible for keeping hundreds of people connected by conveying their letters and packages. What a gratifying feeling it was to see the look of joy and appreciation on your recipients' faces when you delivered their mail. You were proud to call yourself a Parcel Mistress of Prospit.
But lately, the items you've carried have become more somber rather than uplifting. As the war with the Dersites raged on Skia below, you've had to deliver more last wills, final requests, certificates of death, and letters farewell and apology to the families of fallen Prospitians. No longer did people look upon your arrival with pleasant anticipation. Instead they just eyed you with grief. It was becoming too much to bear for you. How desperately you wished to bring something good back into these people's lives, something to heal all their pain.
You started your Monday like any other; checking in to the postal center and getting the barcode on you
ExperimentStuck: Act One, Scene SevenHow long had it been? Since you first teleported that bowl since you first tapped the omnipotence since you first became mutated
Time passed without meaning in the laboratory. There were only two ways to measure its progression; the periods of dark which offered solace and peace, and the periods of light which only brought anxiety and pain. Sure, you could count the days if you kept track of these cycles, but the record of time passed was only as reliable as your memory, and when every day is as monotonous as the last they tended to blur into an indistinguishable haze. So you weren't sure how long it took you before you finally estimated you were well practiced with the omnipotence.
You found you no longer needed to sleep at night. The last time you had, you suffered a night terror, but instead of waking up screaming you woke up snarling and sparking with green electricity. You were barely fast enough to regain control of yourself before Dave saw, and af
ExperimentStuck: Act One, Scene SixThe sound of crackling electricity wakes you up.
It's the middle of the night and this disorients you, but you quickly recover and have a look around. All the other hybrids are asleep, including Rose and, to your surprise, Dave, but your ears are picking up the sound of ragged breathing from below.
There's a sharp inhale then quiet.
Just when you begin to think you're imagining things, you hear sparks and are temporarily blinded by a flash of bright green light. You blink several times and rub your eyes. Looking around you catch a faint glow coming from Jade's cage below you. A slight buzzing reaches your ears.
"Jade?" you ask tentatively. The glow vanishes. A second later Jade's face appears.
"Oh, did I wake you up? I'm sorry, Dirk," She whispers.
"Was that you? What are you doing?"
"Nothing. Go back to sleep."
"But I saw this green light and heard this noise Are you sure you're alright?"
"Yes," her voice sounds worn out, like she just ran a marathon. "Don't worry. Everyth
ExperimentSuck: Act One, Scene FiveYou wake up the next day much later than normal. Much later. In fact, the angle of the sun tells you it's almost noon.
The first thing you look to is the ceiling. Dirk and Dave are still there, looking like they just woke up as well. Maybe the scientists were giving all the survivors a day of rest before they continued with that hybrid's particular trial schedule? If that was so then Jade was at risk of being tested today.
Looking down you catch a glimpse of her body in her cell. Surely she wasn't still asleep as well, was she?
Just then a scientist walks in. "Good job yesterday, guys," he says less than enthusiastically. "We're getting results, just not the results we want, so we're just going to have to keep at it. Maybe our little star here can show you how it's done, right four-one-three?"
At that moment Jade does something that sets your nerves on edge, something you never thought possible for her to do-
It's a deep, un-human growl that makes your fur involuntar
