experimentStuck: Act Three, Scene TwoOf all the scenarios you predicted and planned for, this was not one of them. In fact, you never even fathomed such an encounter. This Roxy person she was just like you, complete with furry ears and tail and paws to match. You couldn't believe it, another hybrid.
You Immediately begin assessing the girl in front of you. Aside from her animal features in full show, she was wearing tattered blue jeans with a short black skirt pulled over it. Her shirt is wrinkled and grey with splashes of pink and a rough black drawing of a cat's silhouette sitting off center on the left.
You quickly realize Roxy's show of dexterity is nothing but a rouse, for she sways unsteady on her feet. She takes a step and nearly stumbles, catching herself on a wall and then places one hand on her hip to play it off. Good God, the girl's intoxicated.
"You ain't seriously gonna eat that rotten ol' apple, are you?" She asks Jade.
Jade's still to dumbstruck to speak. Roxy turns to the rest of you.
ExperimentStuck: Act Three, Scene OneIt just didn't add up. You had him cornered in a room with only one exit. There was no place to run to, no place to hide. So how was it possible that he got away?
"How is it possible that you let him get away?" Vriska repeats your thoughts out loud.
"The hell if I know!" You growl back at her. "It doesn't make any sense! His scent trail just ends, his heat signature completely disappears, it's like he vanished out of thin air! Oooh, when I find that crustacean scented mutant-!"
"Crustacean scented mutant?"
"Yeah! He smelled like fish, and when I had him pinned down I could feel hard plates on his chest instead of skin. As farfetched as it sounds, I think he was some kind of hybrid like us, and-" A realization dawns on you, leaving you speechless. You suddenly understand everything.
"What?" Vriska asks when you trail off.
"He's just like her," you whisper. "He knows how to use the omnipotence too!"
"Whaaaat? But the canine hybrid is the only experiment to be perfected-"
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene SixBlood pulsing, Fear escalating,
The silver needle coming down,
Pain inevitable, Body changing,
You're dying. You're-
You awake with a start; heart pounding, hair raised, and soaked in a cold sweat.
Who needs an alarm clock when your nightmares never fail to wake you up? For a second you can't comprehend where you are. These scents and surroundings aren't familiar. What's going on, where-?
Memories suddenly flood back to you. That's right; you aren't in the lab any more. You've fled that place, buried it in your past But it seems you're still stuck with the bad dreams.
You sit up, stretch, and then turn your attention to the window. The sky is beginning to lighten. Karkat will be expecting you to leave soon.
"Guys, wake up." You whisper to your still sleeping friends. "We have to get ready to go soon." They can't hear you. They're still too deep asleep. "Guys-"
"Okay, young'uns!" A loud voice demands, "Rise and shine! Get your asses
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene FiveBeep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
When you regain consciousness the sudden flood if sensory input hits your brain and hits hard.
The sounds you hear are too loud, the odors you smell are too strong, the colors of heat you see are too bright.
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
"Uugghhh " You groan and roll over. The sweet smell of the tetrachloromethane still lingers in the air, but it's no longer strong enough to keep you under.
Wait Where's Vriska? And where were the other hybrids?
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep-
And for the love of Jesus Christ where was that incessant beeping coming from?!
No matter which way you turn it always seems to be coming from just off your right side. You squeeze your hands against your ears and snarl in aggravation. When you find out where that beeping is coming from you're gonna-!
Just then you remember your collar. So that's what it is. You push the top button.
"Argh! What? What do you want? Whatever it is
ExperimentStuck: Act Two, Scene FourDusk was falling over the forest. You blindly follow your friends through the trees. Every sound makes you jumpy. When you're not lost in thought, you're looking over your shoulder, expecting to find those creatures tailing you. You're uneasy. Everyone's uneasy.
You muddle over the events that happened earlier that day. Did you make the right decision? Was it the right choice letting them live? You knew very well that those two meant to capture you and take you back to the lab. You also knew they even might have tried using violence to subdue you and your friends.
And yet Even knowing all this, when you saw them lying there, vulnerable and helpless, harming them was the farthest thing from your mind.
What would their lives be like if they had been allowed to grow up as normal human beings? Would they have been nicer? Kinder? Destined for greater things? They would never have a chance to find out now.
After a few more hours of walking your party happens to encounter a rushing rive
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
