OOC: Wait a minute, ALL over? As in from the VERY beginning? Alright, I guess I can float on this IC: Within the colony, a dark figure runs around his apartment quickly trying to pack his things and get the hell out of the colony
The man's eyes widen. Looks of panic sweep across the other patrons.
Rotation control... offline.
Orbit destabalizing at a rate of 3 km per second.
Colony will crash into Von Braun in T minus... 29 minutes and... 34 seconds.
Before the sentance is even finished, Paul Kenneth Matrix is out the door and running down the street towards his apartment. Screams of terror are already echoing throughout the colony as the stampede begins.
Have a nice day.
You know what? I'm tired of you. I'm going to kill you now. Goodbye! - Penn, Last Piece

DC looked up from his drink at the Dancing Starlily bar and sighed. "About time this happened...orbit's been deteriorating for years." He stood up and paid for his drink. "Thanks. Don't get yourself killed, now."
The bartender smiled at the patron. "Of course I won't. The only way this bar would ever close would be if it got too expensive to run!"
DC laughed. "As if that could ever happen." He turned towards the door and started heading back to his apartment to get his stuff.

Bzzt... Power grid exceeding 300%.
Power loss immin-
*the colony suddenly goes completely dark*
(from now on, my posts will be in paragraph form, rather than 'script')
The colony was still falling, and now in complete desolation. The bodies of the citizens who couldn't find shelter from the sprayers lined the streets. The heat started to fade quickly after the lights went out, if given enough time the colony would freeze. Of course, it was going to slam into the moon long before that much time passed.

"Alright men! We've been giving an assignment!" the commander shouted. "Our orders are to destroy the colony should the technical crew being sent there fail to stop it!"
One of the soldiers raised his hand. "Permission to speak, sir?"
"Permission granted." grunted the old commander.
"How will we destroy the colony? All we have are grunt suits with Beam Rifles?" the soldier asked.
"That is a very good question. In this time of crisis, we have been given access to a Mobile Suit with power enough to destroy the colony in a single shot." the commander gruffly grunts.
"But sir, if we have this Mobile Suit on hand, what do we need the whole Artemis Brigade for?" the now-bewildered sildier replies.
"We cannot be too careful. The colony drop on the moon may be an act of war. Or terrorism." the commander says.
A screen comes down from the ceiling and a projector begins showing a map.
OOC: Temporarily in script format.
Commander: This is the colony.
He points to a large object on the screen.
Commander: And this is where it will hit.
He points to a dot representing Von Braun.
Commander: The tech team has until the colony reaches this point above Luna....
He points to a spot above Luna.
Commander: Before we send any rescue ships to evacuate the colony. From that point, it has until here....
He points to a slightly lower point.
Commander: Until we begin our attack. We will be escorting a new Mobile Suit.....
A Gundam X, sans any handheld weapons, is shown.
Commander: In its attempts to destroy the colony. It is equipped with a special Beam weapon that is so strong, it requires a power boost from a secret facility to fire a single shot.
The screen goes dark.
OOC: Back to paragraph format.
The troops begin to murmur amongst themselves before the commander loudly clears his throat.
"Any questions?" he asks.
A different soldier asks "Who will be piloting this Mobile Suit?"
The Commander puts his hands behind his back and says "Because of the delicacies of the weapon, command feels only a Newtype can do the job. You have two minutes to get ready for this mission. Use them wisely."
