Sorry for dropping off the face of the world there. LSAT preparations pwnd my brain for a time. I am, however, back now, and tracethenurse and I would like to round off the Ninth Doctor Timeline. Edit: the NEW active thread is currently here!
To recap: the Doctor and the Thal healer, Jabrill, have been holed up in a laboratory high in a deserted medical building, formulating a substance to release the city from its mass hypnosis. Jack, Rose, Trace, and several Thal guards attempted to secure the building against intruders, but their weapons proved useless against the Raganall, and they are being forced upstairs by an enemy that seems no more than vague whispering and encroaching darkness... but can dissolve flesh with a mere touch. The Raganall have come for Jabrill's stolen Mintakan twist (which currently resides in the Doctor's pocket), and will stick at nothing to discover it. The Doctor and Jabrill release their cure into the city's atmosphere, but as a mysterious scream rings out from below, they bolt for the stairs, hoping they're not too late.....
Only one mystery remains unsolved: who has been holding the Thal city under mass hypnosis and taking over all its medical facilities? It wasn't Jabrill, and the Raganall are only here for the twist. At this point, we're looking for either a home-grown tyrant or (hint hint) an extraplanetary villain whose machinations have not yet been revealed.
So who wants to join in? Do we still have a Rose and a Jack?
Edit: I'd like to plot a finish for this timeline and wrap the story up with a bang. Who's with me?
Say, any ideas for what the girls can do now that we're at the Raganall confrontation? I'm thinking the Doctor will probably try to hold it off with the sonic screwdriver noise but that won't work as it becomes more corporeal. It will probably be shot by Jack eventually (as an NPC if Jack's player never returns, but what should we do now?
I'm trying to think what Thals might have on a stairway that could be used as a weapon. I'm thinking if there are any fire extinguishers they might come in handy. Even if the Raganall are immune to the contents the pressure alone should knock anything solid back and the contents would make the stairs nice and slippery.
That's OK, I already found it :). At least you didn't do what I did a couple weeks ago and tell a fic author "You should link your fic to this com" in the com it was already linked to.*face palm* If you're wondering, we were in heroes_claude and what I'd meant to tell them was that they should post it to claude_nine but typed heroes_claude instead.
