So, these statues are actually alive?

If they're alive, then theoretically they can be killed. Who's up for some hunting?



[Later, Action.]
[Ignoring any and all advice to stay home/not fight the angels/not blink, Ellie is off to find her an angel to kill with a shotgun in each hand. Anyone is free to run into her during her search and/or join her in her fight, since these sound like the kind of enemy that require backup (especially for someone who, lacking her left eye, has a pretty large blind spot).

Just keep in mind that it's not going to end well for anyone involved.]


[ETA: So, the Doctor talked her out of going in guns blazing (thank you, not!husband!), so now she's off to meet Archer and hopefully prevent death.

It still might not end well for anyone involved.]

That will more than do.

I'll meet you by City Hall. There are sure to be some of these things lurking near there.

[He'll arrive to City Hall shortly. Normally he would just go on it's roof, but he can't afford the possibility of the Mayor droning him right now for doing so. Thus he appears outside of it, albeit in his invisible spirit mode, waiting for Elsa to arrive.]

[Elsa arrives after some times passes, wary of her surroundings. She's managed to avoid the angels entirely, allowing her to make good progress once she finally left--the Captain was her only interruption.

She realizes, upon arrival, that she doesn't have this guy's name. Deciding that stealth isn't really a priority here, she calls out:]
Hello!

I am, although there's a change in plans. I talked to a man who's fought these things before; he said this is suicide.

[She seems conflicted on this change of plans. She doesn't stand down easily when there's a chance that shooting things might solve her problems.]

...uh. I might not have heard... all the information about these things, but... that still seems like a bad idea. Even if they can be killed, they're... statue... angel... things, right? How do you even start to kill something like that?

We'll just have to get creative.

If something isn't done soon, we're going to be down this whole ☠☠☠☠ town.

It's careless to wait for things to simply vanish. If that were the case, the world would have ended over a dozen times by now.

[Why hello there, not!husband! Ellie blinks at him, honestly surprised, before pulling her arm away from him.]

This is what I do. I've been fighting monsters since I was a girl; what's so different about these?

[Not!Husband has seen better days, he has scratches all over, especially on his neck. He looks exhausted and downright ill]

Yes, yes, it's what I do too. And believe me those guns aren't going to do anything at all. You might as well just lay down and let them get you.

[All of this is noticed. And a part of her is concerned.

However, she's also stubborn.]


If the guns won't work, I can improvise something else. I'm able to think on my feet.

Honestly, I'd be more worried about you than about me right now. You look like ☠☠☠☠.

Well, that's just great for you. You're the only one who can think on your feet, are you? Everyone else is stupid that's why they were killed.

[He's bitter, he just lost his girlfriend okay. When he continues, it's in a vaguely disgusted tone] I'm fine, it's just part of being... human. Ugh, their bodies don't deal well with injuries and lack of sleep.

Don't put ☠☠☠☠ words into my mouth.

Most people aren't trained to fight. I am. So I intend on trying to do something. If I go down, I'll go down fighting. It's all I know how to do.

[That last part piques her interest, but she realizes that now is not the time to ask invasive questions, especially considering his current mood.]

If you're exhausted, you should rest. Otherwise, you're not going to be any help to anyone before long.

I'm going to be more useful than anyone else considering they're my enemies and I've defeated them twice before. Besides, I have something they want now.

[He inhales and rubs at one of his wounds]

Look, please, just listen to me. I've already lost nearly everyone I know here and I'm getting sick of it. You can't fight a stone, that's just what they want you to do. There going to kill you or worse.

[Ellie considers. If these creatures are familiar to him, then taking his advice really is the soundest course of action. His plea seems earnest. Plus, isn't framed as "When I used to run the Avengers...," which makes a world of difference regarding Ellie's willingness to comply.]

All right.

There's a man on his way to meet me at City Hall; I can't just abandon him there. I'll go retrieve him and then get the hell out of the way. If these things are familiar to you, then you're the one who knows what he's doing.

So, how do I keep them from killing me or worse en route?

[The Doctor's body slumps with relief that he's not going to have to see someone else he knows get hurt]

They're forced to be stone as long as you're looking at them, yes, forced, they can't stop it themselves. But don't look into their eyes, if you do, the angel will manifest itself in your head, turning you into a incubator for a new angel.

If you need help, call me. I'm going to be figuring this all out and hopefully saving everyone like I usually do. But it might take some time as I am a bit limited here and human like I said.

Neither.

We're retrieving a man I promised to meet and we're getting the ☠☠☠☠ out of the way. I live with a man who's faced these things before. They're not the kind of creatures you can mow down.

[Thus rendering their services kind of useless. She's more than a little frustrated by this.]

Apparently, "break" doesn't translate to "kill."

I don't understand it either, but he's a mess. And he's trying to stop people from dying, not boss people around, so I'm inclined to do as he says for now.
