Because Jace now knows she can use her mind to save her bacon she is going to to be a wrecking ball with wings.

I haven't given advanced warning because i envision pilots looking confused then flying around the streams, trying to rack up a higher kill tally then others.

I would like to have       Liam and the time rift     be something I resolve at the end of this conflict,   

 so maybe something with the energy weapons being used?  I am open to ideas on how the rift occurs.

It could be multiple energy weapon hits at the same time as the ghost ships fire something big and maybe even hitting the dog and interacting with the stations own energy Donna is calling on.  It crosses the streams and then everything goes wrong.  We could end up with one hell of a boom that way.

For what it's worth (if anything)
Meri's "hole in time" was in the midst of a titanic thunderstorm that she fell into after being driven off of the edge of the observation deck of the airship that her hell galleon was attacking (she and a force of lower-level vamps and thralls  from her ship had attacked as a boarding party). The actual "hole in time" was literally a hole, filled with blackness and ringed by purple "flames".

Not sure if the rift works the same way as or in conjunction with teh hole in time (I see the hole as just that, a Space/Time wormhole); Meri is not a splinter of a whole, so perhaps the rift is part of a different or related phenomenon.

Recuperating from overindulging in andouille gumbo last night; will be taking a siesta as soon as I have Al cover Jace's tail.

I didn't know if we ever put that in to the story or just discussed it here.   Did we ever establish it in the main story?

(pardon teh double post)

*The deck: standard navy/marine air jargon for teh ground, or rather, collectively the lowest thing below the aircrsft (be it an actual deck, the ground, or a body of water); Al is telling Jace to fly as low as possible.

I think it was mentioned in the OOC only

Did I goof and say "The Deck" as apposed to "our Deck"?
IF I did then please excuse the typo.

No goof on your part; I was trying to avoid confusion between Al telling Jace to "head for the deck" (as in the rather cliche'd expression "hit the deck!", which is very nearly literally the same (and also originates from the Marines/Navy), save that in the latter case it refers to people jumping to a prone position to avoid getting hit by flying projectiles or shrapnel.

So no, it was only obliquely related to your post. Sorry if I seemed to be jumping on you. Smiley

Then I think we could let that one go.   I have it in my head that with the two Liams we have one will sacrifice himself to seal the time breach and the other will live.

Just realized I didn't actually finish the statement above. So (edit shown in yellow highlight):

No goof on your part; I was trying to avoid confusion between Al telling Jace to "head for teh deck" (as in teh rathe rcliche'd expression "hit the deck!", which is very nearly literally the same (and also originates from the Marines/Navy), save that in the latter case it refers to people jumping to a prone position to avoid getting hit by flying projectiles or shrapnel), and your post about telling people to get below the level of the battleship's deck.

So no, it was only obliquely related to your post. Sorry if I seemed to be jumping on you.

Hopefully, that's somewhat clearer.

what Jace is experiencing is a tractor beam meant to disarm pray.  If anyone can down the ship that is jamming her she will be able to see again but with her being so untrained there are not many ways for her to fight it off on her own.

I wonder if Al's solution will come up on Mythbusters some day (watching/listening to Mythbusters reruns right now)...

Al took the ship that had Jace out but I think others are going to go for her now that they have seen that will effect her.

Donna & co.Have some help now, but it may come at a heavy cost in supernaturals' lives.

I can also remove that addition if necessary.

No that makes sense that the supernatrals would be called to defend the heart of the station.  What I think is going to happen is the Goliath is going to try and strike down the grove and Donna is going to have the dog take the hit knowing she is most liley going to die.  The power of the station will try and keep the ship together but when the Tempest fires to take down the enemy ship a time warp is created when all three energies mix.  i picture that as everything suddenly slowing down and everyone randomly ageing.

Well that was well planned, The Tempest has begun its attack but the shells are not doing much. The Tempest will come about and its large "Ice Breaker" bow blade will open like this (but not as flashy)

Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Super gravity cannon


To reveal It's lightning cannon this will cause serious damage.

The Ice breaker is a reinforced armoured front which in the case of the tempest also act as her figure head.

I have stopped there because I'm not sure if you want to have the shards or the grove step in a boost the beam. It let the energy build to supercritical mass.

Okay.....   I did my whole "time rift" scenario.

Let me know if it doesn't work for you on something and I will change it.    Otherwise, you can pick what other "Changes" McSwain made.   Whether he set up an escape for the Blue Duck or whatever.   

I think original Liam will wake up in a few posts.
