    Techno gave a loud grunt as he was slammed in the chest by the arcane power swirling around the psychotic mare, his focus lost. He was flung a few meters back and landed close to the wall, dazed and in pain. He did manage to return to his hooves and ready his magic for another spell, but the pain was getting in the way of is focus, making it flicker very slightly.

    Then he had another idea. He took a look into the swirling tornado of stuff to find the grenade flying around in the middle, while focusing on thinking something to the mare. If I can just get a little bit of leeway, the spell should take out that console... he thought, trying to direct the mare's attention elsewhere as he searched for the grenade.

    (perception 7 to find grenade, 48 magic to pull the pin, speech 44 to convince an attack on the console)

    Starry quirked an eyebrow. 'Anypony else want to give it a try? She's speaking as though it were an option.'

    "You know what?" Starry shouted toward the mare, "I have a better idea. Let's not fight. What's say me and my friends just back out the door, and nopony has to fight or get hurt. Sound good?" she offered, as she backed up toward the exit. This mare clearly wasn't going to let them get at the terminal, and Starry would rather go it without a map than risk losing some ponies to this mare. It simply wouldn't be worth the risk.

    The unicorn's eyes began to glow as she lifted herself in the air, "Running away are we? Oh no, we cannot have that!" She spoke in an amplified voice that radiated power and was not her own. She put up a thin shield and looked up to the ceiling, charging her horn, weaving a spell that would get rid of these intruders once and for all.

    Starry did not get far from the Unicorn before she felt something brush against her skin… sea spray from a coast? Puzzled but not paralyzed she tried her best to figure out the mystery… at a distance.

    Hearing Starry's request, Sky did what she did best, fill bad ponies full of holes, unfortunately this time her visibly bullets slowed as they reached the floating unicorn until they finally reached her. Containing just a force that barely broke her skin. She was rewarded with a slight shudder as it but for an instant, slowed her spell casting down.

    With the distraction that Sky provided, Nova crept to the terminal like a snake, dodging flying pristine coffee mugs, TPS reports and clipboards. She tried her best to access the mainframe only to be surprised she was already logged in. Checking folders and subdirectories she found a map of the place. Nodding to herself as she tried to memorize the spatial relations to each room, humming a song that would best keep things in line.

    Shortly there after she felt her feathers bristle on their own. looking over her shoulder she saw a Twisted Vision in a lover's embrace with the unicorn. She didn't need magic to know that being in the room would shorten her lifespan faster then swimming in irradiated waters...

    Techo quickly looked for the discarded grenade but came up empty. Straining himself, he slowly got to his hooves, and by focusing a little bit harder he found the shiny apple, swirling about quickly. Tired and exhausted he tried his best seize the apple but kept finding it slipping out of his grasp. Redoubling his efforts he managed to grab the shiny tool of destruction, but was amazed to find that the pin was missing!

    Twisted recognized the spell that was being cast, it was a teleportation spell. Normally benign, but could be devastating if used creatively, like sending somepony hundreds of feet in the air, in a vat of acid, or even into a wall. Wasting no time, she bit her lip and knew what she had to do. Teleportation required a lot of concentration and the careful manipulation of systems, in other words… Pure order. She lunged at the concentrating pony, feeling herself slowing as she got closer to the unicorn. When she reached to unicorn, she held on tight, jamming her horn into her own, feeding it as much unstable magic as possible. Trying her best to induce so much chaos into the unicorn's brain that the spell would crumple and the feedback would render both unconscious.

    Instead she heard a familiar voice in her head. "Now Now, my dear Twisted Vision, saving strangers you barely knew, How unexpected, How deliciously random, and this spell matrix you have brought me, so complex. rigid and utterly… boring, some might call it a work of art, but I know that true art, is over in a flash. So I will grant you your wish, I will make you a masterpiece."

    With that, both unicorns cried out in ecstasy, as their shared spell grew wildly out of control. The rest of the group, containing some sense of self preservation, ran out the door, then out of the hallway. A loud boom and flash of light enveloped the duo, and a solid steel door chased the party out into the hallway. Hitting the wall and erupting into a horde of monarch butterflies.

    Scrap took advantage of the distraction that Twisted was providing to snag his lightning pistol back from where it was dropped after being used to shoot him. Seeing the others starting to vacate the room Scrap followed, wincing in pain from where he was shot.

    He had just managed to escape the room and rest against the side of the hall when the room that he had just vacated seemed to explode and sent out a wave of...butterflies? A lance of pain from his wound snapped Scrap's vision away from the strange sight.

    "Hey Techno, you think you could take a look at this? I'm not sure how bad this hit is."

    Sky followed the rest back into the out of the door, grabbing her shotgun as she did. Only one look behind her to see them both in the air, afloat. But it didn't matter they had to get as far away as possible, Sky galloped with the rest.

    When a bright flash of light happened behind her, Sky could only on and see...Butterflies? How did that happen? Well whatever, her tick mark isnt on her Pipbuck. She died for us, a bunch of ponies she barley even knew. Sky could only sigh and lie against a wall to catch her breath, as she looked on to the others and waited for Stock Option to call the group.

    Techno huffed, out of breath from the preceding action near the edge of the group. He stood up and shook his head to clear the headache that always came with overusing magic. "Yeah, give me a sec..." he said as he walked over towards Scrap, who was requesting medical aid. He glanced around at the butterflies that had sprung from the room they were running from and rubbed his head with his hoof.

    He walked over to Scrap and sat down, ready to begin his medical work. From what he saw, Scrap had taken a hard hit to the chest that would take a while to heal and would probably be a hindrance, but wouldn't be permanent. "You were hit hard, but it'll heal. Also, am I the only one seeing butterflies?" he said, trying to confirm his sanity and give Scrap the report.

    He didn't wait for a response before pulling out one of the two remaining potions from his bag and giving it to Scrap before tending to the damage inflicted by the powerful pistol.

    (Also, I'm 'Techo' now? Interesting...)

    Scrap drank the potion that Techno had handed to him causing the pain from his shot to go down somewhat as the potions magic started to take effect. As Techno went about tending the wound so he could move with the group again he responded to the medic unicorn's question about the butterflies.

    "No, I'm seeing them too. So unless we both are having the same form of insanity at the same moment they're real."

    Starry reached for the door, and immediately slammed it shut. "There's a live grenade in there! Don't anypony try going in!" she told them, before finally allowing herself to relax, and think.

    Twisted had just sacrificed herself for the entire group. At least, that's how it seemed at face value. Starry knew that Twisted was mentally unstable, and either she was just doing a good job hiding her vast intellect, or she wasn't smart enough to think up an alternative. Starry didn't have one, but she had been thinking at a million miles an hour during that fight.

    Starry didn't like Twisted, not at all. She was annoying, argumentative, and spouted philosophical nonsense that flew in the face of rigorously tested fact, but she was still a pony. She wasn't some monster like a raider or a slaver, she was an actual pony, one who wasn't trying to hurt ponies.

    Starry had to fight back a tear. She wasn't going to allow herself to devolve emotionally at this point, there was still so much they needed to get done.

    "Stock Option? We've got the map. Now, we need something from you before we continue. A friend of ours has wandered off, and we need your help finding him. He was injected with some sort of drug, and I think he might be in trouble."

    Nova slumped against a wall.

    I can't believe it. Nova thought. She's gone.

    Nova let a single tear escape for her seemingly fallen friend. She then steeled herself, standing up once more with a determined, yet empty, look on her face.

    If all friendship can bring is pain, then why bother? Nova asked herself. Is there a point to it?

    Nova then proceeded to wait for the inevitable call from Stock Option. She heard Starry say that the group had the map. She then turned to Starry:

    "We don't have the map. All we have is my memory of looking at it for a few seconds."

    Starry smacked herself in the face with her hoof. In truth, she had thought that Nova had downloaded the map while she was at the terminal, but she really didn't get a good look of what she was doing over there. In fact, she doesn't even have a pipbuck, which should have been a clear sign to Starry that she didn't download anything.

    'Damned little details,' Starry thought to herself. Still, there was no reason for Stock Option to know they didn't have a map. Worst case scenario, they can just head back into the room and download the map off of the terminal, assuming it wasn't destroyed or anything. They would have to watch out for the grenade, though.

    Starry glared at Nova, and held a hoof to her lips. She wasn't sure if Stock Option had access to video feed, but she was hoping he wouldn't figure it out. Hopefully Nova's memory would be enough to go off of, if the terminal wasn't busted.

    Sparks trotted up to the group well aware that something devestating happened and if he counted right. They were missing yet another member. The look on everyones face said it all. He looked at starry and said, "I'll spare you the witty observation but I hadn't seen our striped friend. The good news is that none of those creatures seemed to be around or they don't care to sneak up on us. " he turned to sky, "If you wan you can have your shotgun now..."

    "...*Static* yea....I think I know where he might be, behind you down the hall to your right will be a door that leads to 'Rusty's Robotics'...

    Meanwhile.....Atriark's fluff has become so big he struggles to move his legs....

    Starry's group traveled to the entrance and went through since they didn't really have any other options but to find the stupid zebra and move ahead. A huge sign marked the entrance to 'Rusty's Robotics' As they went inside, Pinkie-bot let off a loud whirl and went zooming through one of the aisles, away from the group. The entire store seemed stripped of any 'niceties' but there were shells of sentrybots, protectorons, and spritebots lying around that seemed to missing half their components. As soon as Scrap walked in, a loud black case lit up and a panel pulled out. The entire thing was about 7 feet tall.

    Loot nearby, rest of the store unsearched:
    -3 wrenches
    -2 plasma pistols
    -4 Spark batteries
    -1 exclusive copy of Sword Mares, Bot repair issue.... swords are replaced with wrenches

    Sky looked around the store, there was a few items inside the store which Sky could loot. The first of which was a wrench, a giant wrench she found on the floor. She could probably use it as a melee weapon, as its as big as a baton she used to have. Well it didn't matter, she picked up the wrench and deposited in her saddlebags. She looked through the store a bit more to find something she thought she would never see, A Swords Mare magazine. And a special edition at that. Sky could glee in the moment, she grabbed and stuffed it in her saddle bags. Only to see a plasma pistol next it, "oh what do we have here?" Sky said as she grabbed it. It was a plasma pistol, looked in good shape. This will fetch a good price in the market, if not then a back up pistol for later.

    The potion Techno had given Scrap had finally taken full effect and the group had moved on into "Rusty's Robotics." When he heard the word robotics his ears perked up and he hoped that he could find something that could help them.

    He had just entered when a terminal folded out near him and the case lit up. He accessed the terminal and read through the command and the description of the contents of the case that was illuminated. He didn't have the 250 bits that the thing asked for so he decided to attempt to hack the terminal to try and circumvent paying bits he didn't have.

    "Guys I'm gonna try and hack this terminal, I imagine if I fail something will try and attack us so you might want to get ready..."

    (Science 75, Luck 6, rolling to hack terminal to avoid paying)

    ---ACCESS GRANTED---

    With a loud hiss and lights filling the room, the large case door fell down and bright wiring and cybernetic hookup's drop from the object inside. The robot was now attached to Scrap's pipbuck and would follow him to the ends of the earth....

    Scrap's Robot zoomed out of the large case, ....a lot smaller than something anypony would've imagined was in the case.

    It went up to Scrap and beeped, awaiting his movement

    Scrap's hack of the terminal was to his surprise, entirely successful and the case opened revealing the robotic treasure within. The machine attached a module to his pipbuck and his new robotic friend zoomed out to meet him.

    It was much smaller then he had hoped but it was still a robot, his robot. After checking the new commands on his pipbuck he went about searching the rest of the room, his new robot buddy following him, occasionally beeping. He snagged the spark batteries and the remaining plasma pistol, he didn't want to end up without a weapon if something managed to take his lightning pistol away again.

    Starry had just barely managed to catch sight of Sky pocketing a Sword Mares magazine, and from the look of the cover, those sword mares were wielding wrenches! Starry gasped deeply, before charging up to Sky and pressing her hooves against her shoulders as she spoke to her, with the most intense expression in Starry's arsenal.

    "Sky! That magazine! They... they... wrenches!!! Do you know what this means?! You have to let me look at that magazine! We- we can look at it together, after we're out of here."

    Starry pushed herself away from Sky, reflecting on the revelation for a moment. "Oh my goddesses... Wrenches. This has to go in the new Sword Mares magazine. Sword Mares... take up tinkering, and with wrenches, build an army of robots. But... but they turn evil! and... and capture the Sword Mares! Oh my goddesses... robot mares!!!" Starry turned back to Sky. "Sky, do you know what this means? We can do so much more with robots! Things that for normal mares would be impossible!"

    Starry trotted up toward Scrap Parts. She had a plan, and she needed a robot expert for it. "Scraps! I have a brilliant idea, and I need your expertise! After this is all over, you and I... we're going to build a robot mare!!!"

    Scrap was fiddling with his new robot which in a stroke of complete randomness he had chosen to name Kiwi, after some weird pre-war fruit he had seen in a book, when Starry came over to him and started to talk about building, of all things, a robotic mare. He was about to ask why though he soon thought better of it, still it took him a few seconds to find any words.

    "Why not? Sure I'll help, though we might have trouble finding enough parts to make a full size robot...but for now we should probably keep our minds on getting out of here."

    Sky looked at Starry confused, 'what was she talking about?' she thought to herself. To stare at Starry go on about something doing with robots and wrenches, But she would share the magazine to her and the rest of the sword mares at their next photo shot or right after they got out of here. Sky only perked a bit at the rest of Starry's explanation, "So we are going to do alot more things normal sword mares couldn't. And they are going to be robot sword mares?" Sky could only smile wide with Starry, Stableton and the sword mares photo shoot will will be even more fun than before.

    By the time that Nova entered the room, the only thing left worth looting was a wrench. She didn't think she needed a wrench, and that someone else may hve more use for one. She then notoced the group just looking around at the scenery.

    "Hey! Aren't we supposed to be looking for Atriark?" Nova questioned in a raised tone of voice. "I don't know where your robot has flown off to Starry, but I would guess that it knows where Atriark is. Personally I think that we should find Atriark before your bot permanently injures him.

    With that, Nova set off in search of the bot, and hopefully Atriark. She followed the route the bot had taken as far as she could remember.

    Techno wandered around the store looking for anything else of particular interest or large value. His search yielded little, only coming up with a bunch of scrap metal and another wrench. He put the wrench in his saddlebags for some short-range bad-guy repellent for when he needed it.

    Seeing Nova and Sparks wandering off, Tech turned to the group. "I agree with them, we should go help Atriark now. Who knows what that drug's done to him by now..." he said, an obvious tone of worry in his voice, not wanting to lose another good pony within half an hour.

    Atriark trudged forward, his coat was now making it hard to walk. He cursed silently many times as he struggled to press forward. At least he had his 10mm in his mouth already, or else he'd really consider shouting until somepony friendly came to help, or one of those once-ponies came to end him.

    Trudging down the dilapidated and cracking hallway, he was beginning to get tired. Looking around, he spied a doorway. Pushing and struggling forward, he eventually reached it. Atriark prayed to any and all deities he knew that the room was small and unoccupied, before inching the door open, ready to shoot any hostiles.

    Starry Night was snapped out of her enthusiastic trance by Sparks, who has just reminded her that there was a zebra out there that might need rescuing.

    "Oh! Er, uh, right! Let's go find that zebra, everypony!" Starry ordered, although it looked like half the group had already gotten the right idea.

    Starry rushes forward toward the door, in front of Nova. The last thing she wanted was for ponies to start wandering off on their own, one rescue mission was going to be difficult enough. "Just stay with the group, we'll find him sooner or later," Starry reassured everypony, as she opened the door.

    Sky sighed and followed the group to go look for the zebra, He left the group on his own but what can they do. They still needed to find him to get the group back together, Since they lost one of there group already. Might as well just go and look for the zebra to get him out of any type of trouble he is in, since everywhere the group goes trouble seems to follow them. Sky pondered what they might find next, this city is only as strange as the wasteland up top.
