    Re: The Bermuda Triangle

    Sarah gave a gasp as she's shoved back, much of her focus wide-eyed on the gelatin moving along by itself as she is shoved free of Clara. She listens after the commotion, leaning against the sub and gently allowing it to go slightly lower as she speaks of it's intolerance of low-pressure. "Oookay... so it's some parasitic lifeform that can't communicate with humanoid species without fucking with them, that leads to madness and death in an entire coven of merfolk, not to mention nearly killing you. I suppose on the bright side, we may have it if it's just this specimen?" She only nodded at Clara's word. "Though honestly, it's still quite the nasty little monster if it did that to like, ALL the merfolk out there." She sighed. "Plus side, that NecroTech serum should help heal the damage it was doing, and we can keep that fucker in a pressurized container until we can find some way to communicate with it...."

      Re: The Bermuda Triangle

      Clara shook her head.

      "I think, not entirely sure, but I think it's dead. That should have flash frozen it. It only acts on what it wants, it was going to take you as it's host. Your serum did something, made my biology too inhospitable for it. But I think there were dozens of them, it was the last one alive. I got the distinct feeling the pressures it needs to survive ... well lets just say we've no hope of getting it back home. How it ended up here though ... I have no idea. I can only guess it lives trapped between ocean floor layers, under some sort of sea cavern perhaps, so far down it'd crush us like an egg. My best guess is there was some kind of earthquake or shifting that released them. The Merfolk just happened to cross paths with them as they free rose to the surface. We should see if there's been any kind of seismic disturbances around here lately, anything that could provide answers. Much as I wanted to help it even now ... I wasn't going to let it take you. God only knows if it could infest you just what it would be capable of. Though ... I'm not sure if it's parasitic by nature or not. It may be able to act like one, but ... it might not actually be a parasite in the traditional sense. Either way, we may never know now."


      As she spoke, she started getting dressed again, seeming a bit embarrassed.

        "Much as it'd be a scientific marvel if we found out, considering things I think that's a mystery best left unsolved," Sarah shuddered a little. "Yeah, getting a host that 'survives' the conversion process to some degree, I'm not sure I'd like the outcome even if it was a scientific breakthrough."

        "...Wait, we should check on Will. He went looking for you elsewhere in the sub. If there was another of those somewhere around here..." Sarah curses, moving towards the door.

          Clara shook her head.

          "That was the only one on board the sub. And yeah, I ..."


          She was cut off as Will came in the door, nearly running into Sarah. Spotting Clara sitting there, he blinked.


          "Uh ... OK, I'm taking it things went well while I was gone?"

            Sarah sighs in relief but nods. "Got a little wild at the end, but yeah, you can see what's left of the... thing, over there," she remarks, gesturing towards the jar. "Seems like it's apparently sentient, Clara got a little into it's head as it was chewing on hers." She lets Clara explain from there if she so wishes.

              Re: The Bermuda Triangle

              Clara quickly filled Will in on what she'd learned, figured out and her best attempts at filling in the blanks.

              "Jesus, so there's no telling if there are more of them out there or not. One thing's for sure, no one should bring any of the bodies out of the water. All we can hope is that this is an isolated incident, and there aren't any more floating about out there."


              Clara nodded slowly.

              "We should start slowly heading for home, make sure the Sanctuary vessels coming out here to quarantine the area know about the risks. By the way Sarah, just what the hell was in that stuff anyway?"

                Sarah frowns slightly, giving a sigh. "The base syringe contents is a chemical meant to stimulate cell growth and repair. Basically a jump-start to fix dead tissue and even repair damaged sections of the body. You'll probably feel a little hungry from the body working overtime, but it was the first thing that came to my head when we learned you were infected to try." She shifts uncomfortably. "Stuff's so potent it can... resuscitate the recently dead and those under necrostasis... but the company that did it ain't around anymore. What I got I've been replicating for a while now."

                  Clara blinked slightly.

                  "So ... you're saying if you had needed to kill me you could have brought me back from the dead with that stuff? What's the time frame on something like that?"


                  ((Well that could change some future plans lol))

                    Sarah blushes lightly, figiting quietly. "Well.... I dunno. Gonna assume really damn fresh to allow bloodflow to be somewhat good. I... never really had a test subject that wasn't still... moving to some degree to worry about it with," she admits. Her and her crazy past of zombie apocalypse survival, she sighs. "Look, I promised the high-ups I'd not mangle the other staff without good reason. Hell I have no idea still if the serum caused the necrostasis epidemic I lived through or if that was some other damn chemical reactions, and personally I'd not like to find out beyond that. But, well, we're in a box in the ocean and we had a time crunch. I'd rather have taken the risk and save someone still alive with it than risk testing it on a corpse that wasn't a guarenteed zombie, ok?!?"

                      Clara nodded in understanding.

                      "Well I'm just glad to not to have put you in position to be testing it on a fresh corpse. Will, is there even any reason to tell Magnus about the serum? I mean ... suffocating me and then doing CPR after the thing left me would be a good cover right?"


                      Will blinked, before realizing she was serious.

                      "Uh ... sure? So ... Sarah locked you in the ventable compartment and vented the air, suffocating you. Once the thing left you ... I performed CPR while Sarah froze it solid and trapped it just in case it wasn't dead. Normally I'd never agree with this but ... hell why not. Don't need Helen mad with you, and I've a feeling we're going to need your help soon based on what they were working on when I left."

                        Sarah sighs. "I suppose... Though the things that happened with Clara does need to be known if they want to keep this crap quarantined. Even if it's just to keep any of the remaining goo-monsters that may still be around deep down. I'm just worried how I'm going to explain this all to the resident merfolk..."
