    The Team [Shayera Hol, Invader Zim, Taika]

    Post by Zurg on Sun Feb 06, 2011 4:45 pm

    From mid-orbit, the expedition team was ejected out of the ship through a unified pod. It streaked downwards onto the planet with a fiery glow, the re-entry temperatures reaching extraordinary heights, but the team inside was relatively safe from harm. It had been a bumpy ride and as the pod was rocked from turbulent winds and forces it breached the stratosphere and headed for a dense jungle below. There came a tremendous boom and the pod slammed into the earth, leaving a charred and blackened groove into the terrain until it slowly ground to a halt.

    Animals and jungle life fled wildly, the world alive with whoops and strange sounds. Exotic beasts with their glowing eyes hid within the dense bush and many scattered as the pod stirred. With a groan and the hiss of hydraulics, the pod door opened and the three members were allowed to exit.

    Each of them wore an advanced suit that would hold water, food, and emergency supplies. It was also equipped with standard shielding and powered communication devices. A holographic HUD from the chest area and weaponry that could be situated upon their hips.

    Inside the additional compartments from the pod they would find weapons to handle. They could choose between a rifle, pistol, or heavy duty cannons. Grenades were also available for hairy situations.

    In another crate would be surveying equipment as well as additional supplies for food and water.

    When they were ready, they would face the ravenous world of UP-006 and even now... the wildlife was already eying them hungrily.

    Welcome to the jungle.

    Zim hissed and glared at the rocky turbulence of the pod. An IRKEN pod would be MUCH smoother! The Pod finally made its landing, the force of which made Zim slam into the floor of the ship, painfully. With a sling of Irken Curses, Zim picked himself back up and marched his way out of the pod, suit on securely, and already taking out the weapon, just in case.

    Zim surveyed the jungle, taking note of every sound, every glowing eye, and every shadowy figure hidden behind vegetation. Most people might be terrified, maybe even paranoid of being in such a place. Sane people would be at least a tad worried about becoming lunch. A timid person, would surely crawl back into the safety of the pod.

    Zim was not normal, not sane, and NOT timid. He grinned at the hidden creatures that no doubt saw him as an appetizer. This was so much better than running a haircut place that had no customers, or hiding in a lair, or being beaten up by Tav. And even if he did die here, he'd have no regrets. He set his weapon on heavy-duty cannon, and held it at the ready. And even if this place wasn't what he wanted to conquer as his own, he was going to have some fun fighting with these alien creatures.

    "COME AND GET IT, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT!" Zim yelled to the alien lifeforms, cackling heartily.

    Shayera hadn't particularly enjoyed the journey in the pod, but she braced herself as well as she could for impact, which jostled them so much that if she hadn't been wearing a seatbelt she would have been overturned. The pod left large, searing grooves into the earth, steam hissing and billowing up from the impact.

    She crept out of the pod, weapons at the ready and suit sealed shut. Her mace was strapped to one hip, and a pistol was strapped to the other. She had even taken three of the available grenades, just in case. She made sure the pod was secure and looked around them.

    Jungle vines hung precariously low, and though the jungle was relatively silent now, with only an occasional hoot or shriek, Shayera senses that they were not alone. She didn't think that sentient creatures had noticed them just yet, but the jungle's animals certainly did.

    Looking around and mentally taking note of the terrain around them so they wouldn't get lost and return back to the pod, she began to walk forwards. Of course, Zim had to brag about it. "Pipe down!" she hissed. "This isn't a field trip, it's an exploration mission. Don't provoke the animals unless they attack us first."

    Because she didn't usually spend time physically attached to a vehicle, the ride down - especially the landing - was a particularly jarring experience for Taika. She left the pod greatly relieved, following behind the other two. She had decided to possess the provided combat suit, given that it would be difficult for a ghostly being to properly wear something corporeal. The outfit had changed somewhat; its shape appeared to conform to that of a teenage human girl, albeit one rather small in proportion to a normal human, and it had somehow gained a small pointy hat and cape. The colored sections of the suit had turned purple, including the glow of the holographic displays. It floated a short distance off the ground, with Taika's wand-staff and a rifle strapped to it. The explosives could be useful later on, and Taika had taken two of them. She had also taken a portable scanner from one of the other crates and secured it on "her" waist.

    She observed the surrounding jungle; she listened for the diminishing noises of the undoubtedly dangerous wildlife, watching for the slightest glimpse of beady eyes and shadowed movements among the trees. Taika knew more than enough about hidden dangers - much of a Ghost Pokemon's existence was, after all, spent in the shadows. It was fairly clear that a fair number of jungle beasts had taken notice of their rough arrival on UP-006. And was that annoying green alien... challenging them? Stupid, stupid, stupid! They were here to explore and learn, not to pick fights with the local fauna! Zim had already been suitably reprimanded by the winged woman Shayera, though, so she just had to hope his yelling hadn't managed to do any damage.

    As the group feared, Zim's loud voice startled the pristine, virgin world. Jungle animals roared and yowled in the distance and the trees and bushes seemed to rattle with unseen spooks and haunts. Fortunately for them, however, nothing would dare to emerge. A good sign for a good start.

    Up a head, through the dense foliage, the group would be able to see a patch of shimmering light through the leaves. To their left and right was nothing but dense jungle all around. Behind was the pod and the scorched earth it charred.

    What shall they do? The planet awaits.

    ------

    GROUP ACTIONS:

    Go forward, to the patch of light?
    Go right, through a giant bramble bush?
    Go left, where beady eyes stared?
    Go backwards, to the pod? You ninnies.

    Zim rolled his eyes at the winged person's reprimanding. Nag nag nag! What did she want him to do, stand here and offer the lifeforms TEA, or act like the Superior Zim he was and scare them off, with his awesome?

    Begrudgingly though, Zim had to agree that she was maybe kinda-sorta almost but not entirely right. After all, if you have to MAKE the fight come to you, its just more work!

    Zim barely paid attention to the...other person who came out of the pod. He didn't know they had a young WORM baby on this mission! But back to the point, Zim only gave that thing a passing glance, since the creatures on the planet made a cacophony of yowling, howling, and possibly yodeling. He grinned excitedly, but frowned again when none came out to attack.

    "Cowards." Zim hissed to the aliens. He WOULD have yelled it, but he didn't feel like hearing more of the bird-lady's nagging. Zim looked ahead and squinted, seeing a bright light shining through the forest. A bright light? In the middle of a planet filled with plants and stuff? Suspicious. But it seemed that the only other way around was to either go through a giant, prickley bush, or to head in the direction of the alien creatures and their creepy glowing eyes. Or the pod. But the pod was for ninnies.

    "I say we go through that prickley bush!" Zim declared, pointing said bush out dramatically. "We can use our weapons to chop into it, making it less PRICKLEY!"

    Shayera narrowed her eyes at Zim. Of all the aliens she had to wind up with, she had to wind up with the loud-mouthed one and the magical one. Just her rotten luck.

    She saw the light on the route ahead, the eyes staring at them from the left, and the prickly bush on the right. The light was suspicious, the eyes nothing but trouble, and the bush looked like it would be a tough squeeze. What would it be? Go through the light, go through the bush, tangle with alien beasties, or head back to the pod like a bunch of pussies? The obvious answer was obvious.

    "Fine, let's go through the bush," Shayera agreed. She eyed Taika. "You coming or what?"

    It seemed the other two didn't really like her all that much. No, wait. Most of the team was in a state of mutual dislike for one another. She didn't really mind the bird-woman, though. It was the perpetually noisy bug that was really annoying! They must have been called Irkens for a very, very good reason, Taika thought as Zim continued his overblown antics.

    It would have been a bad idea to approach the glowing eyes, that was certain. A fight right off the bat probably wouldn't yield anything useful. It was true that the mysterious light was too suspicious to approach immediately. Taika wasn't a Psychic Pokemon - she couldn't exactly take a peek into the future to find out what would be waiting for the ill-meshing exploration team to the north. Of course that left only one option, the one both Zim and Shayera had already decided on. Well, that made things all too clear. With a nod to how the choices were somehow reminiscent of old text-adventure games...

    Be it luck or be it skill, Zim's suggestion had been ingenious. The team successfully and harmlessly navigated through the thick bramble and urged past it, stumbling into a serene thicket. There were glowing orbs all around which dangled from the trees casting an eerie glow like shattered glass, and here the animals seemed more docile. To add to the mysticism, there were small enclaves of ancient rubble lying about. Half-formed statues, eroded tablets; keepsakes of the past. Everything ripe for the picking.

    The team should take this time to survey the area well.

    It seemed the bug was good for something after all.

    As the team emerged from the bush unharmed, Taika entered the clearing a short distance behind the others. This place... it was beautiful. Perfectly mystical, serene, and promising a wealth of ancient knowledge. The soft light from the strange orbs hanging in the air cast strange shadows on the eroded structures of the ruin. Animals, for once not quite so hungry-looking, hid at the sight of new arrivals disturbing the site's tranquility. The fascinated ghost Pokemon floated silently through the worn rubble, elated at the treasure trove of history they had found so early into their expedition. She hoped it would remain untouched by battle, especially with Zim around.

    Suddenly, a soft beeping from the scanner she had taken along pierced the quiet. It had detected an item of interest nearby. Of course, Taika could do nothing else but begin searching for it in earnest. Would it be a tablet covered in mysterious script, or a piece of ancient art, or merely junk? Only time would tell as she followed the signal.

    They went through the bush and emerged into a peaceful glade or thicket, where the animals seemed harmless and balls of light floated aimlessly around them. The sight was almost beautiful, but Shayera knew better than to stop and appreciate it. They were in unknown and possibly still hostile territory, and to stop and look around seemed very, very risky.

    However, Taika's scanner began to beep, which meant that something of interest was probably nearby. As the creature began to look around for whatever had alerted her scanners, Shayera too began to look around, mace at the ready just in case anything jumped out to attack them.

    Zim and the other people who aren't important enough for names just yet, made their way through the bramble bush, without even getting caught on any branches! Zim took a moment to stand there proudly and smugly. Yes, HE was the one to lead this group! He'd taken them through one obstacle already, and succeeded! That, dear reader, is the power of Zimitude. He couldn't really care about the view. And as great as it was to not get glared at, he was disappointed that these aliens were also cowards. But at least the rubble looked great!

    Something on the weird one made a noise though, which sent that one and the winged female to...look....around. Alrighty then. Very quickly though, his genius brain deduced that they were looking for something. Zim joined them and looked around for...whatever they were looking for.
