Having ignored everything happening around her as well as she possibly could, Anna counted her Dust phials - yep, everything was there - before turning away from the dispensers and heading towards where she remembered the checkout counter was. However, a brief pulse of her semblance revealed that there was already somebody there, so she patiently stood at the end of the counter, establishing the beginning of a line.

...Wait. She pulsed her semblance again, then started using her second stage continuously. Alrighty, then. Either the person who'd welcomed her had a twin, or this was one extremely rare occurence of a near-perfect lookalike.

Camelia, while still on the lookout for something in the overwhlemingly dense fog, listened as Justice responded to her inquiry with what she could've sworn was a genuine, somewhat excited tone, completely different from his mild disdain and/or oozing sarcasm up until now.

Well, she tried to appreciate it but was rudely interrupted as a small orb appeared from within the billowing mist and landed right in front of her, detonating as it did so. Her shield absorbed part of the blast, but damn her if this didn't fucking singe her exposed skin.

Now, she had two choices. She could either continue fighting like this, or try and do something about this FUCKING CLOUD they were wading through. She backed up - further than the blast had shoved her - towards her teammates, keeping alert towards any movement in the fog. "Guys! My shield has a short-range, non-contact stun option, but I think I might also be able to take care of this goddamn mist for a time if you cover me!" She took the opportunity to switch Orion into its second form, ready to fire a blast of electricity upon confirmation of the target's location.

I really liked what you did with Helena's symbol so eh, why not? Note that I'm putting these here for your leisure. Also, do have fun messing with the colors and taking what fits best in your opinion, if you so desire. Turned out well last time you did and it allows for experimentation on your end, so why wouldn't I want that?,144.msg325.html#msg325
Kinda complex, this one. Primary is #00FFFF and secondary is, I 'dunno, some sort of light, silvery gray. Yeah. I'll, uh, add hexes if you shout/scream/yell at me.,145.msg327.html#msg327
More simple, but probably vague too. Primary: #9C2F00. Secondary: E95300.,1177.msg14711.html#msg14711
Still in her early stages but ehh, fuck it. Primary: #117AB1 Secondary: Probably something bright, like white, or neon red, or something. Again, early and feel free to 'fuck me', as you put it.

I'll let other people get a word in before actually spamming :))

As the fog/ground mist suddenly rolled over her and her teammates, Camelia took out Orion and a half of Unity, mostly intending to take the brunt of any sudden attack coming from where they couldn't see. She kept a harp watch, though. Better safe than sorry. Plus, the battle had happened pretty much directly where they were right now, who knows what still lurks around.

She listened to Justice's explanation as they all kept trekking forward, following the measly path through the forest. "That sounds like... quite the thing. Is it ever difficult to deal with?"

Ooooh, thanks. Added that.

Yyyeeeaaaah, I've toned it down. Now it's X% continuous and twice as efficient for pulsed. Also, be aware that there is no autohit: aim isn't exactly her strong suit, as implied in the semblance's description. Also also be aware that she CANNOT Aura break an infinite number of students (why the hell did that even come up?) and that EM radiation goes from radio waves to gamma rays, so cancer's going to be delayed for a while. (seriously, a pulsed blast of gamma wouldn't give you cancer as much as pose a serious threat to your life) Also, again, radius SPECIFIED (mid-short range for pulsed is accurate enough, but that doesn't take into account people darting around to evade it) and a laser is, as long as you can see it, somewhat easy to aim. Omnidirectional can't really autohit either since it requires charging a pulse and continuous is rather underwhelming. Also, specified that semblance use requires significant concentration, making her almost completely immobile.

Oh and that's just because she uses the separated form more often than the halberd in combat. I could still switch them up, if you feel it'd be way better.

EDIT: Further rejiggered semblance from Discord talk w/ King, Calen, Monster and a few others I probably don't remember (I know, Ed). Removed damage values as per the recent change in the character template.

After Cobe let go of her nose, Helena more or less stared at Malina in horror as she refuted her arguments and walked out of sight. The blonde girl had been in too much shock to even think of enacting her emergency measures before the teacher had trekked around a corner.

"...Shit." She turned to what she assumed was the only other sane person left on the mission. "I'm not ready to ditch the airborne agent pitch just yet, despite Malina's claims to the contrary. Some sort of psychotropic, airborne agent that needs to be in high enough concentrations to take effect or something, affecting emotions and mental state without inducing outright hallucinations, or mayhaps with hallucinations, I can't tell. Let's go your way and scout the perimeter wall to see if there's anything else noteworthy.", she continued while starting to walk clockwise around the, err 'village'.

"Let's make haste. If we find anything that's not a door like this one, we're going in after them. Gotta be safer behind those walls than in the middle of nowhere, at least if Grimm are concerned. That work?", she finished as she looked to her last (in a sense) teammate. Her smile was starting to return, although she didn't worry any less about those inside.

Err, for now, close- to early mid-range power bursts, long-range DoT, view finding ('look at this!'), flashbang (without the bang), heat source in cold environments. Think that covers most of it. To note that the flash is a bit less efficient because, y'know, red. Or IR, depending.

Eventually, even more powerful blasts close-range and long-range power comparable to current anti-projectile laser prototypes. Possible use in conjunction of Lightning Dust for creating electrolasers. Wavelength spanning entire EM spectrum, giving access to more penetrating shots up-close (which would be useless at long range because atmosphere) as well as fun things like microwave emission for cooking food/doing a person-sized Active Denial System. Multiple lasers at once, phase-based simultaneous emission to reverse emission direction (omnidirectional mode only).

Did I answer your question(s)?

This wasn't good. In fact, this was starting to get relatively terrifying. Her eternal shadow of a smile had started to fade away, now almost completely gone. She had to get everyone out of there, as fast as possible. She had several ideas for now, but let's start with the least... unfun one.

Helena took a deep breath and, maintaining her position of not-looking, answered. "Malina, something is indeed very wrong in there. All of you that've gone in - Teddy, yourself, Calen - aren't the same. Your personalities, or at least behaviours, are entirely different. Teddy, you and Calen were very visibly nervous and even fearful of what may be behind walls as tall as Beacon Tower where there previously was a simple, if prosperous, village. Now not only do you try to stay in there, but Calen seems to be breaking down, Teddy is proceeding forwards with what I can only hear is an utter lack of caution and you yourself seem to have entirely forgotten your state of mind a minute or two prior, all of which are complete 180s of your general behaviours during the rest of the mission.

Please, something is very abnormal in there and you need to get out now.
" Her tone was legitimately getting imploring at the end. If this didn't do it, she'd have to resort to drastic measures.

...Whatever Cobe was up to. Hopefully, watching her back.

Was this supposed to become a massive meme?

((Been informed that posting is freeform for non-combatants rn.))

While continuing to read, Anna more or less shrugged before saying in a barely audible mumble "What's there to talk about? I'm shy and he's bloody aware of it.". Calen's continuing, if not heightening, dickishery wasn't exactly helping her cool down.

Helena walked a bit back from the entrance, readying her bow for any unexpected and unwelcome events - although she made sure not to aim the bloody thing at her companions. The door opened and she tensed.

Nothing... happened? Well, other than the door opening and a lights & sounds show unbecoming of a small village spilling out, it was eventless. That said, she noticed that those who'd gone right in had an odd way of looking around, dazed nearly beyond recognition. The fact that they seemed to slowly keep walking further in didn't help her stop worry from springing up within her.

She slowly edged closer to the door and, without looking directly in or entering, yelled "Hey, um, guys? Mind coming back out here and telling us what's up?"
