==============================



WHAT THE HELL IS AN ALABASTER?

Alabaster: The Doomed Session is a horror story which started in 2011. It was once the longest Homestuck fan adventure; since, it was doubtlessly surpassed by other work. I started it as a hobby, to distract myself of more serious projects.
It is still in progress, close to completion! Join the ride if your heart is not too sensitive.

VIOLENCE WARNING, TRIGGER WARNINGS AND DISCLAIMER

On the first page of the mirror.
To sum it up: countless trigger warnings - stop - No excessive visual violence (it's more cartoonish than gore) but really disturbing ideas - stop - I regret some of the things I wrote - stop -

Chapter 5

==->

[Image: doomed2388.png]



==->

[Image: doomed2389.png]

In a half-immersed hive far away from the shores...



==->

[Image: doomed2390.png]

A powerful, athletic, richly-clothed troll stands in her respiteblock. It just so happens that today, the 6th bilunar perigee of the 5th dark season's equinox, is the day of this young troll's destruction.



Enter name.

[Image: doomed2391.png]

Your name is AUSIRA HEKATE.

Flowing through your veins is nearly the richest blood the hemospectrum has to offer, penultimate on the scale. As such, you are a SEA DWELLER, a sub-race of troll distinct from the commoners by mutation and habitat, a caste which rules over the entire species.

You bathe and gloat in the glory of your species, and you always make sure that in your surroundings, every cast behaves according to their rank and quality. From violet to burgundy, they are all parts of the beauty of the strongest space nation, the Empire bound to conquer every star and every planet.

You hold a fascination for FINE ARTS and all facets of CLASSIC AESTHETICS. It made you closer to some sensitive individual of the lowest blood than to other creatures of the highest castes, for often your fellow purple-veined companions can lack refinement. Particularly the fashion-endeared Vamuin Ikenga, whose antics are as demeaning as they are enraging.

You are especially skilled in PAINTING and POTTERY, but you train in all kinds of artistic activities. You also dive into HUNTING and SPORTS with a passion, making sure to offer the best performance possible in each physical field into which you venture.

Your trolltag is upbraidersRage and when.ever yʘu spe.ak, yʘu alwa.ys ma.ke a pʘint.



Ausira: Examine HORN ORNAMENTATION.

[Image: doomed2392.png]

Your hive is full of refined decoration crafted by your Skylpe contact unsettlingMerchant. He often has trouble obtaining new material, so he cannot satisfy all of your requests... But a new party is coming. And after every party, the Artisan receives a delivery of new material.

You receive an invitation for every party, but you never come, for unsettlingMerchant is a rust blood and you do not endorse his delusions of grandeur.



Ausira: Examine EXQUISITE PAINTING.

[Image: doomed2393.png]

Beauty... magnificence...

Your favorite painting is THE HIGHBLOOD FIGHTING HIS LUSUS TO THE DEATH, but you must admit DECAPITATEBALL CHAMPION FACING A MUSCLEBEAST is a close second.
You have countless other masterpieces, masterfully wrought scenes sublimating everything the Empire’s culture hold precious and sacred, but you spent a lot of money on those two and wasted numerous sleepless days contemplating them.

Ah... Decapitateball Champion...



Ausira: Look at the INFERIOR SURFACE DWELLER NEWS.

[Image: doomed2394.png]



==->

[Image: doomed2395.png]

Another noble framed by the populace. When will your people remember their values? When will such oppression of the rich be stopped?



Why look at INFERIOR SURFACE DWELLER NEWS when you can read SUPERIOR SEA DWELLER NEWS.

[Image: doomed2396.png]

Finally some quality information.



Exposit on the HEIR APPARENT.

[Image: doomed2397.png]

You personally do not like this prominent figure of the Nautical Aristocracy. It is rumoured that Feferi Peixes is reluctant towards the most fundamental aspects of politics, such as culling, large industrial companies, leaving the mother planet to children, culling, bloodism, culling, military conquest, culling and culling.

Such a feeble-minded individual cannot possibly hope to lead the Empire to further glory.

If she ever reaches the throne, you and the rest of the nobility will support her, of course. No matter her political divergences with the current statu quo, your loyalty cannot be questioned. You will surround her. Help to relieve her thinkpan from the most prosaic matters, with delicious drugs or other distractions worthy of her rank. Gentry will not let vulgar judgments and legislation sully the Heir’s hands, and her every order will be interpreted judiciously.



Sixth troll.

[Image: doomed2398.png]

You cannot be PAST SECTRA because she's taking pics for Ophiuchus the Great!



Ausira: Hear noise.

[Image: doomed2399.png]

Well, what is this? It seems something crashed on the roof.

What will you do?

Oh. My. God.

I just read this whole thing in the past 4 days or so. Just... wow.

What have you created? It's so terrifying, so tragic, and yet so beautiful.

Oh, right, um.

> Ausira: Bring your computer with you. Somehow. Surely you have extras lying around?

(Right?? I've been following this for years, I can only imagine what it's like to experience the whole thing over the course of a few days!)

Well, this is one fanventure I did not expect to see back from the dead. And on a nice forum, too. Hello to any regular reading this. :)

The experience is already approaching a one year old, but I still remember it as emotionally draining and extremely satisfying with sudden "what, it's on hiatus!?" when I reached the current scene.

Ausira: Send the caller a quick curt message that you're busy and check the disturbance immediately. You can't leave dead musclebeasts or idiots who can't pilot just rotting on your roof.

MIRROR UPDATE: http://mspfa.com/?s=236&p=2428



Ausira: Ignore the clown messaging you.

[Image: doomed2400.png]

It is not the most difficult mission. This terrible excuse for a highblood has been harassing you for months, trying to convince you he is fit to become your fated kismesis.

Well, he is a Decapitateball pro player. But you know he has no respect for the fine tradition of the sports, and merely started in order to seduce men and women of nobility.



==->

[Image: doomed2401.png]

You despise him.



==->

[Image: doomed2402.png]



==->

[Image: doomed2403.png]

NO. Not in such a way. Never in such a way.



Ausira: Have your lusus handle it.

[Image: doomed2404.png]

You send your trusted caretaker to look after it. Without a doubt it is some kind of dangerous troll or animal - this is Alternia after all.



Be the child.

[Image: doomed2405.gif]

You cannot be the child because the child is a canon character. Even an entire sweep before his adventure truly begins, he is outside your control.

This anonymous wriggler may possibly have a partially non-tragical life one of these days, after all.



Ausira: Wait.

[Image: doomed2406.png]

After half an hour, your lusus is not back from the roof.



Ausira: Grab your LASER CROSSBOW.

[Image: doomed2407.png]

Your PRIORITY QUEUE flawlessly delivers your BATTLE ARMOR while your CROSSBOWKIND jumps right into your hand.



Ausira: Investigate roof. Whoever would be so crass as to BREAK (into) your elegant hivestructure?

[Image: doomed2408.png]

What is this grotesque contraption ?

Well this is the last thing I expected to rise from the dead.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Ausira: Approach object with caution.


[Image: doomed2408.png]



You walk towards the vehicle, holding your crossbow firmly, attentive to every sound.

This is not an ordinary kind of flying machine. It lacks shielding, spikes, and this weird overall structure... a trident?

Were it not for the fact that all adults are hundreds of light sweeps away subjugating and destroying inferior species, you would almost think a fighter from Her Imperious Condescension's Navy just crashlanded on your roof.

Ausira: Look for signs of your lusus.

[Image: doomed2410.png]

It is nowhere to be seen; it is not significantly disturbing, though, for you know your lusus to often dive in the sea without warning. Plus, with its high-speed forelimbs, it is perfectly able to dismember even the strongest opponent.



Ausira: More importantly, where is the occupant? Investigate cockpit.

[Image: doomed2411.png]

Nothing except an absurd interface.



==->

[Image: doomed2412.png]

You discover with increasing stupefaction there is neither holograms or flight AI, only a flat screen and a bat-shaped wheel.

Furthermore, there are foot pedals mounted on clockwork, and the entire cockpit is extra-padded, as if it was built to accommodate a pilot with a lot of appendages.

What is this lowtech piece of junk?

Would you prefer to:
1 - Stay a little more on the roof
2 - Get back inside
3 - Activate your deathtraps
4 - Get back inside THEN activate your deathtraps
5 - Other

You are a proud alternian noble and whoever piloted this is clearly either a primitive or a lowblood. Let the hunt begin !
