    "Oh damn." Blazen said, his hoof's flame going out and him grinding his teeth in pain. He shook his hoof but that did nothing to get rid of the pain. "I dont know, i just think of it." Blazen said to Dash, but then seen something in the water. It was moving, and he seen bits of the big daddies body slowly get...eaten off? He also seen a 10mm smg in the water, and wanted to go after it, but then he shook his head. Not again, not with this suicidal thinking. He, deep in side, wanted it to end. But no, he would never do it. He watched as ripples appeared through the water. "Yeah, i notice it." But then he noticed a silver orb in the water. "...Uh, whats that?" He asked, but from what he knew of the wasteland (or now the ocean) nothing was as innocent as it seemed.

    Arc's time seemed to slow down, his pupils contracted to the size of pinheads, his heart rate skyrocketed, his pancreas released another large dose of adrenalin. This whole process was crescendoed by his leap from the water, during which he ripped out his pistol from his holster and sprayed wildly in the direction of the bite.

    "AAARGHAA!EIEEAAG!THERE!"

    Arc slammed sideways to the water, hitting himself to the head as the water did not managed to slow his fall enough. He momentarily lost consciousness

    Even as the water slowly rose, Zestari was more concerned with Kestrel’s progress, he should have been there right? How long did it take to operate a valve? Would the suit hold together? Shaking her head to clear her thoughts, she turned towards the others, only to spot Blazen with his hoof on fire.

    She was about to go and clip Blazen over the ear and give him an earful on what Zestari considered the folly of his actions with the vial he’d injected himself with, but as she sloshed through the water towards him she spotted an odd ripple as though something was moving under the water. She stopped and looked at the spot. Then Amber called and pointed to another ripple.

    “Everypony be careful, I think there’s something here with us.” she said quietly, backing up against the wall.

    Everything was quiet. Just the sloshing of water and creaking of metal; then Arc let out an almighty scream and practically levitated out of the water. She watched as he spun his gun towards the water and fired before landing awkwardly and going limp.

    “Quick! Cover him!” she yelled out and began wading towards him; a difficult task given she was already laden with Kestrel’s equipment. If whatever had attacked him was still doing so, he’d have no way of defending himself.

    Reaching him, she lifted his head out of the water and slowly dragged him towards a corner.

    Kestrel narrowed his eyes within his suit, his heart rate climbing a bit as he stared into the off-grey orbs floating before him. Eye's no doubt...and an ugly ones at that.

    Kestrel was no fool, he knew he could not do much in this damned suit of his. To much risk, especially if these things were predatory in any way. On tear in this suit and the fight was over.

    Kestrel was not willing to risk that.

    Slowly, so as to not raise any alarm, he began advancing backwards towards the airlock door. Being sure to keep his guard up as he did so, his cold predatory eyes flickering between each of the enemies before him.

    Emotionally Kestrel's sense of peace was now most definitely gone. Replaced by his usual sense of unwavering calm and focus. He was ready to fight if he had too, but at this moment he really did not want to try it.

    Amity leaped into action as Arc let out a scream of pain and the promptly began spraying lead in the general direction of the attacker. Getting over before Zestari came to drag him away, Amity watched the waters more intensely than he did before hand. As Zestari began the process of slowly dragging Arc to another spot in the room, Amity made sure to stick close as he protected their retreat.

    Honestly he didn't know what to expect, and seeing as he didn't want to lose his knives in the rushing water, that took those out of the picture. He was just left with his blade to fight through this wretched place.

    He did see, however, a 10mm Submachine gun floating around in the waters. Not wanting to risk leaving the two alone, Amity waited for the weapon to drift towards him until he snatched it out of the water a safe distance from the two. It may be of no use to him now, but maybe the others could use it for a while.

    Dash was about to ask Blazen if he had known what that syringe was going to do to him when he was distracted by the sudden commotion. When Zestari said that something was in the water. Dash scanned the water and then hovered upward a few feet. His deep blue eyes scanning each square foot of water for a flicker of motion, all the while, keeping his .357 at the ready.

    Blazen nearly jumped when Arc started shooting the water and suddenly passed out. Zestari tried pulling him out of the water, but Blazen couldn't pay attention to that. He pulled out his 357, aiming at the water. He didn't want to waste any ammo, but he had to protect Arc and Zestari while they were more deep in the water then he was.

    (The same thing Dash is doing, scanning the water for it. I ironically have the same amount of Perception too.)

    Mona slowly backed up from the movement. There was no point charging something she couldn't see after all, and she was stuck with utilizing the 9mm side-arm she had for now, which she was quickly doubting would be of much use...

    She would have levitated the SMG in it's place, should the weapon have any ammo, but before she could, Amber had already grabbed it. So instead, she carefully aimed the 9mm, her eyes ready for the slightest sign of movement as she aimed the gun back and forth, ready for the creature...

    Kes's steps brough him even closer to the silver orbs...and the figure that was curiously tapping on his helmet with whatever it was he had.... Only responding by gently trying to wrap itself around glass....
    ---------

    Two horrifying monsters lept out at the team, luckily Arc managed to get a shot off into its face and it fell back beneath the water but another one had lept out and gripped Dash's right hoof in its mouth, fangs sinking into the fletlocks....

    and still more silver orbs were fading in and out of the water.... At least the water wasn't pouring in any more. Making Kes's mission a success.....

    Kes did not like this. He did not like this at all. His mind saw this...thing as a threat. So without much thought at all Kestrel reached up and tried pushing the thing away.

    He did not swat at it, or punch it away, just a calm east push to get it away from his helmet as he continued to backpedal towards the Airlock.

    He should be pretty close by now, if he was counting his steps right. And he was still not going to risk a fight out here where he had no distinct advantages.

    Dash jolted a bit when the first of the creatures leapt out at them, distracting him from another that leapt up at him until it had already latched itself around his his hoof and had sank these ungodessly teeth into it. Dash gave out pained yelling noise with the gun still clenched in his teeth. He struggled to keep himself out of the water against the weight of the creature. He looked down directly at the monster's bulbous eyes which displayed no intelligence other than bloated instinct, bringing the pistol to bear on it as well. He moved his head closer to the monster's face and aimed the barrel of the weapon directly at its eye, squeezing off a single shot.

    Arc felt a dull thump on his head, and everything went silent, calm, and black for a moment. In retrospect, Arc found that moment of non-existence very relaxing, but nothing lasts forever, and he was thrown back to the real world soon enough. He still was in a water high enough to drown in, if Zestari hadn't pulled his head out, and his back leg was still bleeding. His ears were full of seawater and Arc felt amost deaf, and his eyes stung from the salt. For five seconds, Arc had no idea where he was or what was happening, only that there were ponies and zebra shooting at something in the water surrounding them, and if he won't get up he'll fade again and drown.

    Then he saw Dash and the 'shark' chewing on Dashe's leg, and made the connections to his now bleeding rump. He knew he was in no shape to shoot for the moment, but at least he could find where was the other thing, and point it to others.

    Reaching a corner with Arc in tow, she preoccupied herself with keeping his head above water for long enough for him to awaken. When his legs began to support his own weight, she slowly let him go and turned to look at the wound on his flank that was gushing red into the water, and probably attracting the bizarre water creatures currently attacking them.

    She reached into her now sodden saddlebags, pleasantly relieved to find the inside mostly dry and withdrew a tin of blood coagulant paste. Leaning over Arc, she quickly attempted to apply some to his flank. Out of the corner of her eye she saw another of the watery monsters attack Dash and sink its fangs into his leg. Well, he was now next in line for her attention.

    The monsters in the water would have to be kept away from her if she was to be able to provide the best medical assistance to those attacked as she was able.

    The second the creature latched onto Dash's hoof, Mona didn't hesitate, as she spun around with her 9mm drawn and fired at the sea monster.

    She would try not to shoot Dash, but accidents may happen...and honestly, it isn;t like this wouldn't be a bit of karma if a shot should go wild...not that she would be aiming to hurt...

    Kes managed to swat the creature away for a few seconds, but it didn't go away, it continued to harass Kes's suit the rest of the 20 yards it took to get into the airlock, once inside the water slowly began to drain but the creature was beginning to flick its limbs more rapidly, tapping even more onto the helmet. Yet worse, it appeared that 3 more of the creatures had followed Kes into the airlock as well and appeared to be fighting each other as the water pressure begin to disappear...
    (water level is at Kes's neck)
    ----------------
    A creature lept out of the water and lunged at Zestari, who was trying in vain trying to apply paste to Arc's ass. But failed as the monster bit into her rib, causing her to drop the paste in the water, as the aberration's limbs dug themselves into her back and her stomach......

    Dash and Mona managed to shoot off the eye of the beast that had gripped onto its hooves and it silently fell back into the water and sank.

    Luckily Arc was panicing enough to notice that it was indeed not dead but still still violently thrashing and swimming about the group...

    Kestrel watched as three of the little...things began to tear each other up as best as he could through his view port. So much for peaceful wildlife. Apparently when you took the water away these little Draquans got rather aggressive.

    And he was stuck in here with four of them. One of which was now rather aggressively trying to get into his helmet.

    The water level was not going down fast enough though. Kestrel was still weighed down by the water that was, as of right now, up to his neck. So he could not use his hands for much fighting right now, what he could do however was use his head.

    Fight against the still draining water as best as he could, Kestrel moved over to the side of the airlock and, when the water level was low enough, smashed his helmeted head against the wall of the chamber.

    And hopefully the little draquan with it.

    If one blow did not do it he would follow up with another shortly after that one, and another after that if necessary.

    Something splashed the water, flew around Arc's head and caused a scream of pain from Zestari. In his panicked, confused state, Arc once more almost pulled out his pistol and reactively fired, but once again, he stopped when he realized he could easily shoot the zebra as well as the shark. Then Arc remembered how he held the monkey thing back in the entry room, hopefully it would work again.

    "DASH, MONA, ZESTARI NEEDS HELP, I'LL HOLD THE BASTARD, BE READY TO SHOOT IT!"

    Well, that worked last time too, didn't it?

    Dash squeezed his eyes shut as the shark's fangs removed themselves from his fetlocks. He once again felt fresh blood begin flowing down his leg. He opened his eyes widely as he heard Arc Weld yell for him to be ready with his gun. He took aim once again at the creature biting Zestari, trying his best to ignore the pain in leg in his hoof and him his fetlock.

    Zestari made a rude sound in zebra both at the searing pain against her ribs as one of the aquatic monsters decided to try and make a meal of her, digging its painful limbs into her back and stomach for support as it tore into her. And also because, with a splosh, she dropped the prepared tin of anaesthetic into the swirling water.

    With no gun prepared, she resorted to trying to shake the monster loose and pry its digging limbs off her, all the while yelling for help as she churned the water around her in throes trying to prevent it from burying its teeth any further.

    Zestari Brayed as the pain got to her, she tried in vain to rip the creature off of her body but it didn't budge from sinking its teeth into her coat, blood beginning running down into the water and her coat began to mangle at the edges of the wound. Arc tried using his magic to rip off the shark beast, and it flew off, tearing even more flesh as it did. Dash, luckily managed to maintain his aim and even as the shark was removed, he got several shots through the beasts eyes and then it went 'still' while still gripped in Arc's magic.

    Under the water however, Zestari's leg got singed with a dozen sharp teeth slipping into her flesh. Causing her to fall over and raise the leg into the air in panic as the second beast had smelled the blood and thought that Zestari's leg was a very fine leg indeed.
    -------------------
    As Kes smashed his helmet agaisnt the wall, and in a loud splat, his visor was now covered in monster goo. The other creatures continued to tear each other up and one appeared to have died in the conflict. But as soon as the organic fluid reached the water, all 3 of them began trying to penetrate the suit. Clashing senselessly of what was already a filthy visor. The hatch was halfway open. Kes couldn't see what was going on. But he heard a couple of beats that indicated a firearm going off...

    Kestrel only blinked as one of the draquans popped like a pimple on his helmet. Well, that was annoying. He did not have time to really focus on it all though, as shortly there after the creatures little friends decided that Kestrels suit was in the way of their next meal.

    He could feel them trying to penetrate the suits protective layers. Trying to get to him and rip him up a bit. No way was he going to let that happen. Yet there was an issue.

    Kestrel could not see through the guts on his helmet.

    Pulling another simple strategy out of his hat, Kestrel began shaking himself violently so as to keep the creatures off as he back peddled into the airlock door. When it opened he would step out and back into the water soaked floors of the maintenance room and preform a rather risky maneuver.

    Namely dunking his head down into the water below and shaking his helmet a bit to clear it of the guts that were plastered all over it.

    When he could see again he would take aim at the first little draquan he could find and send a massive armored fist flying its way, and if he could he would back hand another into a nearby wall.

    The dull thumps of gunfire were not missed by the gryphon through all of this, apparently he was not the only one having some issues. He could do nothing to help the team though until he finished off his current foes.

    Her efforts to remove the creature were in vain and she could feel the gnashing teeth as it literally ate the flesh off her body. She could feel blood gushing down her side as it wriggled its head until a tearing pull and the creature was wrenched off. Another bit of crimson bloodied zebra flesh in its jaw. Zestari almost didn’t want to look at the wound, as she felt the trickling sensation of blood down her side.

    She turned her head and instantly regretted it, the massive gaping wound in her side glistening with blood. She was definitely going to need a healing potion. Possibly both of the party’s remaining potions. Before she could reach into her saddlebag to grab the remaining one she held, something bumped into her.

    Another shark creature wrapped its vicious teeth around her leg, causing her to spasm, slipping over into the water making the blood from her previous wound mingle even better with the water. She was in a full panic now, and started screaming. She splashed around in the water haphazardly trying to get away, as the new shark creature began gnawing on her leg.

    "Ohshitohshitohshit"

    The wound Arc unintentionally caused Zestari looked grave, and Arc was already hitting himself mentaly for causing it, he really was on a roll for causing the poor mare trouble. Still, the sharkfish got perforated by bullets, and that hopefully gave the engineer time to at least say "sorry".

    Then Zestari started spasming again, making her slip and start milling in the water, her leg with the creature sticking out.

    "Oh no you wont you little fucker, not again."

    Arc's horn flared with magic again, trying to keep the creature still.

    The second she heard the Zevra's scream, Mona redirected her aim, as she tried to aim the shot straight for the little bastard that was now clinging to Zestari.

    She quickly fired several shots towards the fish-like being attached to Zestari, trying to remain calm, collected, and still in the water as she levitated the pistol. She didn't want to go splashing about in the water after all while these things were there...that could possibly attract them.

    Dash was about to attempt a tricky eye shot on the creature again when he felt something bump against the back of his neck, something metal... Dash now felt like bucking himself all the way to Tartarus and back. Here he had been, using his peashot 9mm pistol and savoring the bullets of his new 357, when he had his just about prized possession to date other than family items he had kept at home, his 10mm Submachine Gun. He had to buck himself again for not being reminded of it when seeing the other one which had been floating on the water just a few moments earlier.

    Dash knew he only had the magazine that was in the gun at this point, but he knew it was full. He quickly exchanged his weapon for the heft fully automatic gun, just before taking a few moments to reorient himself with the weapon, he open fired.
