In the far future, biotechnology advances by leaps and bounds, creating stunning achievements in medical, civil, and military applications. Illness becomes a thing of the past, and genetic modification is as commonplace as cosmetic surgery.However, like all great advances, unchecked progress and experimentation has led to abuse and corruption. Ultra powerful megacorporations that monopolized the latest biotech have risen to be the great powers of the age, waging secret wars of sabotage, espionage, and deceit to get ahead of each other.In order to fuel their rampant growth, megacorps develop lethal diseases and viruses, horrific bio-organic abominations, and ever more exotic genetic modifications to both sell to the highest bidder and unleash upon each other.The rampant proliferation of bioweapons, and the need to contain them, has given rise to a new profession, the BIOWEAPON HUNTER.---Now with a new OP!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Bioweapon%20Hunter%20QuestOther Quests: https://pastebin.com/eTUmEmRb---You are LEWIS, a Hunter specializing in hunting down biological threats with your T-Doll companion HK!"All right, let's go over this one more time." Mom grunts.You, Mom, HK, Carol, and SOPMOD were crammed in the back of a van, which had manged to smuggle you back into Raccoon City without being noticed by the authorities. Currently, you were parked near the hidden entrance to a secret Umbrella lab, being run by the man that was after you, Wesker. Right now, the plan was to break into the lab and ruin Wesker's little pet Nemesis project, causing enough public humiliation and financial loss that the Umbrella CEO Oswell Spencer would personally intervene, removing Wesker and thus getting his warrant off your head.(cont)
>>3561442In order to guarantee this whole thing would be blown open the public and not covered up, Auntie Egan had already tipped off Lucina about the plot. Once things go loud, STARS would be mobilized to "respond" to the situation, thus ensuring everything would be on public record.However, the trick was GETTING into the lab in the first place. "Now, I don't have to tell you that security is pretty fucking tight on this door." Mom grumbles as she points to a grainy picture of a seemingly abandoned storefront. "Heavy armored door, lots of automated defenses, and bioscanners to root out infiltrators.""Is this the only entrance?" HK asks."Pretty much." Mom nods. "Now, we gotta decide if we want to do this quiet or loud. We can try to fight our way through the door, and we've got the firepower to do it, but we'll be pretty much giving ourselves away right off the bat.""I like the sound of that one!" SOPMOD giggles."Or we can do it quiet. Carol can infiltrate the door under disguise, and open up an access point from the inside for us. But the whole thing will have to ride on her.""I can do it!" Carol says enthusiastically. >Just attack head on.>Have Carol infiltrate.>Other

>>3561445"I guess we can have Carol go in first." You nod. "Ooooh, ooh!" Carol jumps up and down. "Maybe I can be like, super sexy and seduce the guards or something? Like in the movies!""They're not gonna be that dumb." Mom sighs as she flicks Carol's forehead. "No, you either have to go in as something small, or you disguise yourself as one of the staff...""Awwwwwww." Carol pouts, obviously unhappy that she can't roleplay as a sexy woman, apparently. "But if I gotta do that, I'm gonna need to get a taste of 'em! They're bound to have bioscanners.""The thought crossed my mind, yeah." Mom acknowledges. "We should have some options there.">Have Carol infiltrate in a small form. You don't even need to get their attention.>Have Carol disguise herself as one of the staff.>Other
>>3561539>>Have Carol infiltrate in a small form. You don't even need to get their attention.

>>3561539>>Have Carol disguise herself as one of the staff.
>>3561539>Have Carol infiltrate in a small form. You don't even need to get their attention.
>>3561539"Carol, can you go in as something small that they won't notice?" "Fiiiiiiiiine." Carol sighs as she takes a deep breath. Suddenly, Carol starts to shrink steadily into a smaller and smaller size until she was nothing more than a tiny, skittering beetle. It honestly really amazed you that she could turn into something so tiny. And just like that, bug-Carol skitters out the van doors and out of sight. "All right, there's going to be a service access that she can open from the inside not far from here." Mom further explains. "Shouldn't be heavily guarded, and I'm sure the bots here can handle any electronic surveillance, right?""That is one of my advertised capabilities." HK nods. "Showoff." SOPMOD mutters. Just like that, the four of you silently exit the van, carrying all your gear in large duffel bags into one of the nearby alleys. Mom continues the lead you through the hidden paths squeezed between buildings until you come across a nondescript looking steel door built into the side of a brick wall. "Doesn't look so tough!" SOPMOD huffs."Yeah, LOOKS like like it." Mom rolls her eyes. "Don't have have super scanner eyes?""The brick wall is merely a facade. The entire structure is built out of heavily reinforced concrete and armored plate." HK explains. "Do you do all of your environmental checks visually?""...not all the time." SOPMOD mumbles. "And- shit! Get back!" Mom hisses.Instinctively, you all duck back behind the corner of the alley as the door slides open. A pair of Umbrella guards and what looks to be a low level scientist step out, each one of them holding cigarettes. "What a great fucking time to take a smoke break." Mom groans. "If Carol tries to open the door behind them they'll raise the alarm.">Just wait, maybe they'll leave before then.>You need to take them out, then.>Other

>>3561641"Guess we gotta take them out then." You conclude."Yeah, but quietly." Mom cautions. "I'm already jamming the camera systems." HK notes. "This will have to be handled quickly.""Just leave it to me!" SOPMOD giggles as she cracks her steel knuckles. >Let SOPMOD blow off some steam.>Best to hold her back for now.>Other

>>3561741You dash forward, your fist already hardening into a crystal cudgel as you smash it into the closest Umbrella guard's face, shattering his protective facemask in the process. The man drops like a sack of potatoes.Meanwhile, a black tentacle snakes out from behind you, latching onto the second guard and yanking him away like lasso as Mom uses her Invader arm to swing him into the alley wall. Thre's a loud WHUMP as the guard falls into a pile of trash. The scientist tries to make a run back to the service door, but HK is already ahead of him and holds her arm out, clotheslining him and sending him toppling to the ground. Just at that moment the service door opens again, and Carol pokes her head out, dressed in a lab coat she undoubtedly created to blend in. "Awwww, you started without me?!" She pouts. "I know, right?" SOPMOD whines in agreement."Don't worry, we're just getting started." Mom winces as she forces her arm back into human shape. "Fuck, been a while since I let it loose like that.""I have a rough map of the lab complex when I penetrated their system." HK notes. "There are three points of interest. There's the administrative offices, where Wesker and Birkin are most likely to be located, the main lab where Nemesis should be held, and the operations centers that controls all of the facility's central functions.">Go for the offices.>Go for the lab.>Go for operations.>You're going to have to split up.>Other

"I know you got a beef with Wesker and all, but this Nemesis sounds like it's gonna be a tough one to handle...">Go after Wesker>Go after Nemesis.>Seize Operations.>Other

You say."Heh, we're not gonna need it." "Oh,oh! Can I let loose now?" Carol jumps up and down. "Go for it." Mom nods. "Yay!" Carol says as she's already morphing, black carapace covering her body.Carol then gives you a thumbs up before sprinting down the hall towards the administrative office section. In the distance, you can hear shouting before everything devolves into gunfire and screams."Well, uh, don't get yourselves killed." Mom nods before jogging off after Carol."I am so jealous." SOPMOD mutters."You'll get your chance." You assure her and turn to HK. "Can you get us to the lab?""Of course. I've already spoofed the required security clearance." HK nods as she peers at the distant carnage Carol was wreaking. "I suppose Carol would give an ample distraction for the security forces here.">You're right. Mom and Carol can draw their attention while we get to the lab quietly.>I don't want to risk Carol getting overwhelmed. We're going to wreck everything we come across.>Other

Rolled 8 (1d20)>>3561947"We'll let Carol draw off the attention of security." You say. "Sorry SOPMOD, just wait a little longer and then we can go loud."Fine. Fiiiiiiine." SOPMOD sighs loudly. "Lead the way, HK." You say and turn back to SOPMOD. "Remember, we only engage when necessary.""Yeah yeah, I get it, mom." SOPMOD rolls her eyes as she readies her rifle.>Roll 1d20

>>3562014Fortunately, it looks like HK's call was right, and the security was all too focused on responding to the rampage Carol was causing on the other end of the facility. Sirens blared and warning lights flashed as scores of Umbrella guards dashed down the halls. Scientists and other noncombat staff were scrambling to find any shelter they could, and you, HK, and SOPMOD were able to stay out of trouble solely by not being seen causing any. These guys had more pressing matters on their minds, after all. "Man, what a bunch of wusses." SOPMOD mutters as a pair of scientists hurriedly stumble and dash past her before diving through the nearest open door. "They're only following standard crisis protocol." HK points out. "Yeah, guess they wouldn't be too much fun taking out anyways." SOPMOD shrugs. However, as you wade through the panicked flow of scientists and staff, you could almost swear you saw Vahlen in the crowd, apparently trying to make her way to the labs as well. >You should intercept her. >You don't have time to waste on her.>Other
>>3562030>You don't have time to waste on her.
>>3562024Do headpats count?>>3562030>>You should intercept her.
>>3562030>>You don't have time to waste on her.
>>3562030Damn, well, you didn't have time to waste on trying to confront or intercept Vahlen. Instead, you continue to follow HK through the halls as she leads you to the location of your target. You see a set of double doors as automatically slide open when HK gets close, and right away you could see the view was different. The hall was now lined with large, glass windows showing white, sterile labs on the other side. Whatever experiments going on within them had been hastily abandoned, but it didin't seem like any of them were involved in the Nemesis project. The entire hall rumbles as Carol's rampage continues through the facility. The lights flicker briefly as sirens continue to wail. "Just a little further ahead." HK assures you. "Ooooooh, so much stuff to wreck..." SOPMOD whines. >Leave the labs alone. You don't know what's in them.>You're in the heart of the facility. Start causing some damage.>Other
>>3562063>>You're in the heart of the facility. Start causing some damage.Cry Havoc, and all that jazz.
>>3562063>You're in the heart of the facility. Start causing some damage.
>>3562063>>You're in the heart of the facility. Start causing some damage.
>>3562063"Go for it." You nod. "All this stuff is apparently important to Umbrella, so let's wreck it all.""Finally! Some action!" SOPMOD cackles as she raises her rifle and fires the underbarrel grenade launcher a the nearest window. You see the heavy 40mm grenade smash its way through the window, punching a hole clean through the security glass as it plunges into the lab beyond, exploding and completely engulfing the room within in fire. You get the feeling that these labs had a higher than normal oxygen content.HK follows up by launching more grenades with her mounted Typhoon system, and explosions ripple through though the hall as labs full of precious materials are put to the torch. You can't even begin to calculate what sort of monetary damages was being caused as SOPMOD cackles at the destruction being wrought. HK meanwhile remains cool and professional as always, applying controlled destruction down the hall. However, a new set of alarms start blaring, and the way you came through is suddenly sealed off by a massive set of armored doors."WARNING. MULTIPLE CONTAINMENT BREACHES DETECTED IN LABORATORY WING." A voice bellows over the intercom. "INITIATING QUARANTINE PROCEDURES."Suddenly, fire starts to shoot down from the ceiling from hidden nozzles, setting everything in the labs further ablaze."Cooooool!" SOPMOD squeals. "Damn! I wish we got some people trapped in here so we could see what happens to them!" Well, either way, there was no way you were leaving the way you came, at least not in any short amount of time.>Take your time. The fire shouldn't be able to harm you with your defensive abilities. >You better start hustling. No telling what other "quarantine measures" they might have down here.>Other
>>3562083>You better start hustling. No telling what other "quarantine measures" they might have down here.
>>3562083>>You better start hustling. No telling what other "quarantine measures" they might have down here.Don't need toxic gases coming down later.

>>3562083>>You better start hustling. No telling what other "quarantine measures" they might have down here.>>Other>Seduce the Red Queen. Also, IB4 laser hallway.
>>3562083"Come one, move!" You yell to HK and SOPMOD and the three of you hustle to the other end of the hallway as the fires begin to spread. Besides the flame projectors,you didn't really want to know what other special "quarantine measures" Umbrella had for this level. The three of you reach the other end quickly enough, and as the door slides open, you find it ends in a large dome shaped chamber. The edges were lined with large blocks of machinery whose purpose you couldn't even begin to guess at, while the center portion of the dome was more open. Everything was a stark, sterile white, with a single column in the center.And at the base of the column, you could see two scientists struggling with one another. You immediately recognize them as Vahlen and Birkin."You musn't!" Vahlen grunts. "It's not ready yet! We have no idea of its effects on-""I will NOT let my work be destroyed!" Birkin yells as he tries to fight his way past Vahlen. "Y-YOUR work?" Vahlen gives and indignant glare. "This is about your accursed pride-!" >Stay back and see what they're up to.>You got bad feeling about this. Better intervene.>Other
>>3562108>You got bad feeling about this. Better intervene.
>>3562108>>You got bad feeling about this. Better intervene.
>>3562108"Damnit." You mutter as you dash towards the pair of scientists. "HK, SOPMOD, cover me"! "Affirmative." HK nods. "Aw, we're not gonna waste 'em?" SOPMOD sighs. You don't respond as you sprint towards Vahlen and Birkin, but before you can reach them, you see Birkin finally overpower Vahlen and shove her to the side, sending her sprawling on the ground. Birkin then turns so face you, an injector full a black liquid in his hands. "You!" Birkin scowls. "You're too late! With this, my Nemesis will be complete!"And with that, he stabs the injector into his chest just as HK and SOPMOD open fire with their rifles, drilling bullets into his head and chest with perfect precision. His lifeless body topples over. "Dr. Vahlen, are you all right?" You ask as you kneel down next to her. "This is not good, we must leave immediately!' Vahlen gasps as she struggles to get back up to her feet. "Without your DNA to stabilize the serum-""Lewis!" HK yells out a warning and you turn to see viscous black fluid gushing out from Birkin's wounds. What was once presumably a lifeless corpse gets back up on its feet, a black tarry goop forming a shallow pool under it. More barks of automatic fire from both HK and SOPMOD drill into Birkin, but his body doesn't even flinch from the attacks. His body then seems to expand like a balloon, while at the same time his flesh begins to melt into more of the black tar. "WE MUST LEAVE!" Vahlen cries. "There's an emergency exit this way! We need to seal this lab! There's no telling what Birkin will do if he breaches containment!""But HK and SOPMOD." You glance at the two T-Dolls, who were still firing everything they had into the rapidly mutating Birkin."They're mechanical beings so Birkin's instincts shouldn't trigger against them." Vahlen tries to assure you. "Hopefully.">Yeah let's get out of here.>I'm not leaving without them!>Other
>>3562125>>Yeah let's get out of here.
>>3562125>>I'm not leaving without them!Ohana means family.

Rolled 19, 5, 18 = 42 (3d20)>>3562125"I'm not leaving without them!" You yell as you make a dash back towards HK and SOPMOD. "Just keep the door open for us!""J-just be prompt!" Vahlen shouts as she scrambles for the exit. "HK! SOPMOD! Disengage!" You yell at them. "Your attacks aren't even putting a dent into this thing!" "Roger that. Regrouping." HK says simply. "Gaaaaaah, if only I brought something bigger!" SOPMOD whines. >Roll 1d20

>>3562137However, as HK and SOPMOD move to regroup with you, you see a tendril of the mass of black flesh shoot out towards them. Not wasting a second, you dash forward and give it a crystal punch. However, your head suddenly explodes with pain the moment your fist contacts with the tendril. Your vision goes white and you lose all sense of balance. When your vision clears, you find yourself quite literally being dragged to safety by HK and SOPMOD. Behind them, you could see the mass of black flesh quivering and momentarily docile, as if your punch had dazed it as well. Regardless, the strange reaction buys HK and SOPMOD enough time to drag you to the emergency exit, where Vahlen is anxiously waiting. "Remarkable." She breathes. "It seems there was some sort of harmonic effect when Nemesis came into contact with-""Doctor." HK interrupts her."Ah, right!" Vahlen nods as she hits a large red button. Almost immediately, the emergency exit is sealed up by a massive armored door. "All right, that should buy us some time." Vahlen pants. "The containment won't hold forever against a specimen of that size, but perhaps we can figure-"However, suddenly the roof of the lab dome explodes, causing a cave in as concrete, earth, and steel come crashing down, smashing into the goopy flesh comprising Nemesis. There's a loud, inhuman shriek as Carol, now in an equally sized mass of tentacles, claws, and gnashing teeth, comes dropping down, splashing right into the center of Nemesis, her infinite mouths tearing at the goopy flesh. Vahlen, HK, and SOPMOD look on in confusion at the sight, but you immeidately understand, like some ancient instinct buried within your very genes. This conflict between Carol and Nemesis was cruel yet inevitable. After all, there can only ever be one Mother.>And that's it for today! Stay tuned for the conclusion to the quest on Saturday! Hope to see you there!
>>3562148>After all, there can only ever be one Mother.Does this mean that if Carol wins she is promoted from big sister to mum?
>>3562148Thanks for the thread, boss.>>3562151Perhaps if Carol consumed part of Nemesis, she would have enough genetic material to reproduce asexually. That is of course if we aren't able to stabilize it.Maybe if Nemesis calms down, she can be a potential life mate with Carol due to their shapeshifting?
Oh God, would Lewis have been considered a potential leader for the last of the Invaders if he was born female?
>>3562148"Mein gott..." Vahlen gasps as she looks at the carnage being wrought in the lab dome through a small, armored viewing port. "To think there was another Queen in existence-""Doctor!" You yell, snapping Vahlen back to reality. "What do we do?""What CAN we do?" Vahlen shakes her head. "We are watching gods battle. We are but mere ants compared to them.""Save the horseshit, lady!" SOPMOD interjects. "If I learned anything, it's that anything and everything can be killed if you apply enough killing to it!""I'm afraid I have to agree with her." HK sighs. "Well..." Vahlen pauses. "We never predicted someone would deliberately inject themselves with the Nemesis Serum, but perhaps we can lure Nemesis into the facility's reactor core. It should be hot enough to burn it faster than it can regenerate.""I don't like the idea of luring it into a nuclear reactor." You frown. "Lewis, I'm picking up comm chatter that the RCPD has arrived on the surface level." HK informs you. "They might have resources to deploy." Vahlen nods as she turns her gaze back to the viewport. "But perhaps we should just... let them fight.">Trust Carol to handle things.>Go link up with Lucina.>Lure Nemesis into the reactor.>Other

>>3563643>Lure Nemesis into the reactor
>>3563643"Guess we have to go with the reactor idea." You frown. "How do we get there?""Fortunately, the reactor chamber is directly underneath the laboratory dome. There's a failsafe switch that will cause the dome to collapse into the core." Vahlen explains. "However, I do no have to remind you that the heat and radiation down there will be rather significant.""I think my body can handle it." You grunt. "What shall we do?" HK asks."Yeah! We can't let you have all the fun!" SOPMOD grins. >You need to help out Carol.>Keep an eye on Vahlen. >I'm going to need backup.>Other

"We'll provide whatever fire support we can."All right! We get to go ALL OUT!" SOPMOD gives an evil grin as her metallic hands flex. "Let's go!"You then turn to Vahlen...>Take her with you.

Rolled 11, 3, 7 = 21 (3d20)>>3563835"Go up to the surface. The RCPD Chief should be up there. Tell her everything that's going on." You order Vahlen. "Is that clear?""Crystal." Vahlen nods. "I don't exactly have much other choice, do I?""Nope." You say as you open the hatch leading to the lower levels. "HK, SOPMOD, be careful out there.""We will." HK nods as she manually unseals the door into the lab. The room is immediately filled with sounds of roaring, shrieking, and tearing flesh. Carol and Nemesis were just going at it mercilessly.You force yourself to look away and drop the down the hatch...>Roll 1d20

>>3563858They should probably first rebuild the ranch to accommodate their future kids, Alice, and Carol's potential family. God knows what will happen if all of them have powers.
>>3563865You immediately drop into what feels like a giant boiler room. The air was hazy from the sheer heat emanating from the nuclear reactor below you. Not to mention, the air was filled with a combination of smoke and steam, generated from damaged machinery and ruptured water lines. Suddenly, your biosensor goes off, warning you to somebody approaching through the steam. You pivot and point your rifle in the general direction, only to see Wesker himself standing there, still wearing those damn sunglasses, though they were visibly cracked now. "My my, what could you possibly be doing down here?" Wesker asks wryly. "I suppose you're here to destroy Nemesis?"You keep your rifle trained on him. Where's Mom?"Oh, if you're thinking of your mother, don't worry, I was only just able to shake her off for the moment." Wesker says as he casually takes his sunglasses off and wipes down the lenses. You see his eye glow a threatening red in the dim light. "I'm sure she'll be along shortly.">Maybe you can get him to spill some info.>There's no time for talk here.>Other

"Wesker says simply as he puts his cracked sunglasses back on. "I saw a business opportunity and decided to pursue it.""Do you know about me." You narrow your eyes. "I did have my suspicions." Wesker smiles. "You see, my father was a member of the Defense Council during the Magic War, so I had access to... certain files. But I wasn't absolutely sure until the blood sample Dr. Vahlen obtained from you showed certain markers."Shit, now you remember, back when you were being evacuated from Antarctica, Vahlen had been performing first aid on you. "To think Alice Archer's very own son was under our noses this entire time." Wesker chuckles darkly. "And you've evidently inherited her talents, as well.">So what's your big plan, now?>So Vahlen knew, too?>Give it up.>Enough of this.>Other
>>3563934>>Enough of this.Time to save the city.

>>3563934>So congratulations, you got yourself caught.>What's the next step of your big plan?
>>3563934"So what's your big plan now? You say warily, keeping your trigger ready to pull at any moment."Well, my backup plan was the take the Nemesis Serum and take my business elsewhere." Wesker shrugs. "Umbrella isn't the only biotech giant with deep pockets.""Quite the loyal company man you are." You retort sarcastically. "Unfortunately, I made the mistake of trusting a weak minded fool like Birkin." Wesker glowers. "So I'll have to resort to my second backup plan.""Which is...?"Wesker's eyes flash red behind his sunglasses."I'll have to obtain a fresh sample."Suddenly, Wesker disappears in a blur. >Fire!>You need to dodge.>Harden up and tank the hit.>Other

>>3564040You feel an impact on your chest as Wesker's fish slams into it, but thankfully, that's where your crystal armor was the strongest, beefed up by the crystal plate you were wearing underneath your vest. You barely even feel the hit, and Wesker's momentum is stopped cold."Interesting." Wesker notes as he tries to back off, reaching for a holstered handgun. >Shoot him first.>Pursue him and keep things close.>You don't have time to keep tangling with him. >Other

>I actually called out my 20 for once.What is this sorcery?
>>3564118You lunge forward and tackle Wesker, sending the the both of you crashing into a control console and causing Wesker's gun to clatter away. "WARNING. CORE SHIELDING IS RETRACTING." The intercom shrieks. "ALL PERSONNEL ARE RECOMMENDED TO EVACUATE."Down in the chamber below, a heavy steel door begins to slide open, show a large steel orb nestled down below. The heat immediately hits you like a tidal wave, and the temperature starts rising rapidly. "Quite the situation we're in." Wesker seethes as he tries to break out of your grip. Goddamn, he was STRONG, as it was taking everything you had to just hold him down!>Try to toss Wesker into the core. >Keep him down. Your pretty sure you can outlast him in this heat. >This isn't good, you need to break open the ceiling somehow.>Other

These were temperatures no human was meant to be subjected to...>Roll 1d20+1

>>3564177Your vision goes red as the control room practically becomes hell on earth, the infernal radioactive heat surging from the core filling up more and more of the space. Every square inch of your body screamed in pain as the heat spread through it like a virus, your cells literally boiling alive in the heat. However, as bad as you were getting it, Wesker was also eating the same amount of punishment. However, he wasn't quite going down as quickly as you thought. While his clothes were already flaming and smoldering, and his sunglasses were practically melting onto his face, Wesker was somehow still hanging on. Just what in the hell was he made of!?However, a black fist suddenly socks him in the face, and you turn your head to see Mom, sweat pouring from her body and panting hard. Otherwise she didn't seem affected by the debilitating heat. "Figured you'd be doing something fucking stupid." Mom seethes."Mom, I had this handled!" You complain."Yep, you TOTALLY had this handled!" Mom yells as she points to the open nuclear reactor just a handful of meters away. She then points to the now unconscious Wesker. "Let's get him out of here.">Sure thing.>No, he deserves to burn.>Other
>>3564196>No, he deserves to burn.
>>3564196"Yeah, okay." You grunt, finally letting go of your hold on Wesker. Mom casually grabs him and slings him over her shoulder like nothing. "The hell are you doing down here, anyways?" Mom asks, wiping sweat from her brow. "I kinda ran into Wesker while trying to open the reactor core." You explain, not daring to revert your crystal skin back to normal. "Wait, how the heck are you just standing right above a nuclear reactor so casually?!""Would you believe me if I said this wasn't the first time I've been in a situation like this?" Mom grunts as she carries Wesker to the exit hatch. "Where's Carol?" "She's uh, fighting Nemesis right now." You explain. "The plan is to drop it into the core to kill it for good.""Ah." Mom pauses. "Wait, Carol KNOWS about this plan, right?""Um.""We unfortunately haven't been able to communicate with Carol!" HK reports over the radio, gunfire, inhuman shrieking, and SOPMOD's maddened laughter filling the background. Shit. You glance at the ceiling, which was now cracked and looked to be close to collapse. Looks like the fight above was doing a real number on the structural integrity of the roof of the core chamber. It would take much to get it to collapse...>Try to communicate with Carl through the Hive mind.>Bust the ceiling and trust Carol is fast on her feet.>Other
>>3564237>>Try to communicate with Carl through the Hive mind. Although don't spill your plan because nemesis could overhear it.

>>3564237Honestly, it was hard to concentrate with the debilitating heat, which was pressing down on you more and more like an ever increasing weight, but you had to try. You take a deep, superheated breath and close your eyes as you try to imagine yourself back in that empty water....>Roll 1d20

>>3564262You open your eyes, and immediately find yourself back in that the tranquil waters of the Hive mind. Or, well, the previously tranquil waters. Now, the sky was dark and cloudy, lighting and thunder constantly flashing and booming. The once calm waters were turbulent, surging and flowing like river rapids. And there in the distance, you could see Carol in a struggle with a formless, black mass. Even in this ethereal realm, Carol was in a titanic struggle against her opponent. "Carol!" You yell. "CAROL!" "Lewie?" Carol hesitates, and quickly dodges out of the way of a lashing tendril. "What are you doing here?!""Carol, there's not much time!" You warn her. "I'm going to blow out the floor from underneath you and drop that fucker into a reactor core! You'll need to be ready to disengage!""W-wait!" Carol grunts as she kicks the mass away temporarily. "I think... I think I can absorb this thing! That way it won't be a threat to anybody!" "Is that possible?" You pause."I... I don't know. I never tried to absorb another Queen before..." Carol replies, uncertainty clear in her voice. "But I have to try, right?"Meanwhile, the mass that was Nemesis begins to regroup, preparing to lunge at Carol and restart the struggle. It seemed equally, no, possibly even more intent on absorbing Carol instead.>See if Carol can do this. >It's too risky. We need to fry this thing.>Other
>>3564278>It's too risky. We need to fry this thing.

>>3564278>>See if Carol can do this.Though the aftermath would be pretty interesting.
>>3564278"No way, we're going to fry this thing." You insist. "Carol, just get ready when it happens.""O-okay." Carol sighs. Suddenly, it feels like the ground gives away completely beneath your feet and you fall through water, your vision going black as the waves close in. Your eyes snap back open in the read, superheated hell of the rapidly heating reactor core. Mom's already dragged Wesker through the hatch and is looking back at you worriedly. "HK, can you hear me?""Affirmative, but you're breaking up." HK replies."Blow the floor! Use whatever explosives and firepower you've got!" You yell."Affirmative. You heard him, right, SOPMOD?" HK says."OH YEAH! TIME TO CRASH THIS PARTY WITH NO SURVIVORS!" SOPMOD whoops. Yeah... things were about to get quite hectic now...>You better evacuate and get clear.>You need to stay to make sure the job gets done.>Other

>>3564327Good riddance, meanie.(those were not Carol's rolls, were they?)
>>3564327Suddenly, there's another rumble as the ceiling caves in, concrete and earth tumbling into the nuclear pit below. It's quickly followed by a massive black mass of flesh, the main body of Nemesis as it shrieks, tumbling into the eternal inferno. However, all that flesh and moisture hitting the superheated core all at once cases a sudden flash evaporation, and there's a bright flash as a column of flame spurts out of the core, striking what's left of the lab dome and shaking the ground. "Lewis, the structural integrity of the complex is failing!" HK warns. "The entire facility is about to collapse!""WARNING, STRUCTURAL FAILURE IMMINENT." The intercom blares. "ALL PERSONNEL ARE TO EVACUATE IMMEDIATELY."Well, shit. "Come on!" Mom yells. However, you glance at what's left of the lab dome. Did the others make it out? You can't seem to raise anybody the radio and you certainly didn't have time to try and get back into the Hive mind...>Trust everybody's fine and escape with Mom.>Detour to make sure the others are okay.>Other

>>3564358You dash into the lab, where you see a burnt and charred HK and Carol carrying a rather heavily damaged SOPMOD, her limbs practically melted off. "Ehehehe, got a bit carried away there..." SOPMOD chuckles weakly. "It is time for us to leave." HK says bluntly. let's go."Carol, is it... well... is it done?" You ask her. "I don't sense its presence anywhere." Carol sighs, suddenly looking very tired. "I had to detach and sacrifice a lot of my biomass to keep it occupied, but even if it survived being burned by the core, it'll be buried under all this rubble."Another rumble tells you to keep things moving."All right, let's go then." You nod. However, as you all ascend the emergency escape stairs, you could already hear the police sirens wailing above, and police officers barking orders and instructions to both bystanders and evacuating Umbrella personnel. "Lewis, I'm detecting a heavy police presence outside." HK warns you. "The warrant on you technically hasn't been lifted yet. What shall you do...?">No point trying to run away.>You're pretty sure you can slip past them.>Other
>>3564369>No point trying to run away.
>>3564369>>No point trying to run away.Let's hope we won't get beaten too badly before Lucina gets to us.
>>3564369"Well, there's not really much point to running away now, is there?" You sigh. "I suppose not." HK shakes her head. "Are you fine with this?""Well, what's the worst they can do, arrest me?" You chuckle darkly. "Don't worry. If there's anybody that should be sneaking out, it should be you, Carol.""F-fine, but I'll be keeping a close eye!" Carol assures you as she starts to shrink down into a smaller rat form, skittering away in the the rubble. That left just you and HK carrying SOPMOD's damaged body. You take a deep breath and head up to the top of the stairs. Almost immediately, you're faced with dozens of guns pointed at you from dozens of officers."FREEZE, DIRTBAG!" One of the cops yells. "Stand down, officer!" Barry grunts as he strides past the line of police and up to you, Grizzly following closely at his side. Other STARS members were also starting to filter into the scene. "This is STARS business, so you should be focused on the disaster relief!""But sir-" The cop stammers. "Did I stutter?" Barry raises an eyebrow. "Go on! There's people still coming out of the rubble!""R-right!" The cop nods as he and his fellows disperse, leaving just you and Barry. "Don't worry, we'll let your T-Dolls through. They're not on our list." Barry assures you. You just silently nod to HK, who dutifully carries SOPMOD to the van. There, you see Mom and Carol already there, ready to drive off. Further down, you could see Wesker being loaded into an ambulance, under heavy Umbrella guard. You wonder what exactly was going to happen to him.Shit, what was going to happen to YOU?"Lewis, you are under arrest." Barry says as he slaps handcuffs over your wrists. "You have the the right to remain silent..."However, you're not quite fully listening to Barry's words as you're led away from the scene. "Destruction of an Umbrella lab is quite the serious offense." Grizzly observes. "You're gonna be in a lot of trouble, mister!""Oh, that he will." Barry chuckle darkly as he leads you to an RCPD patrol car and shoves you into the back seat. "Honestly, you're a real troublemaker, aren't you?" Lucina sighs as she turns to look over from the passenger seat. "Lucy." You grin. "So I guess I'm getting an escort downtown?""Hm, well, I think we can take our time while your warrant is being re-reviewed." Lucina smiles. "Isn't that right, ST-AR?""I'd say sometime within the hour." ST-AR confirms as she mans the driver's seat. "Then just take us somewhere quiet." Lucina instructs."Hey, um, that's nice and all, but could it hurt to get these cuffs off, already?" You ask."And why would I want t do that?" Lucina gives a rather terrifying smile. "I' think you look rather good in cuffs~."All you can do is gulp with concern as ST-AR turns the car into a secluded side alley...>And with that, Bioweapon Hunter has reached its conclusion. However, stay tuned, since I'll be posting some epilogues on Sunday to round out the thread!

>>3564392Oh my!Thanks for the run OP!
>>3564392Thanks for running Merc!
>>3564392Thanks for the run.
The only future for Lucina's and Lewis' married life is that they will still stay on their jobs and turn the chasing thing into some sort of bonding.
>>3564392I feel that there's more to be done with this universe, but maybe that's just because I want more Carol, HK, and Sopmod.
>>3564413>>3564422I feel that there will be plenty of misadventures during the whole lifetime starting from the pregnancies to the days where the kids are spending their days on the family ranch, and all the way to when the kids are secretly being superheroes at night.
>>3564422Considering their nature and undetermined lifespan, they could pick literally any career if any of them felt bored. Though, I can imagine Carol eventually turning into a planet sized being in the impossibly far future that lives through human sized proxies and avatars.>>3564719So long as they give the kids names that start with L's.
>>3564873>It is the far future of the 41st millennium>Carol has grown to be the size of a Supergiant Star>She has since the death of Lewis and Lucina's great grandchildren been watching over their family descendants like a hidden ancient guardian angel>She has only once kidnapped every man, woman and child of this bloodline, with that during the endtimes of the dark age of technology when the age of strife was about to begin>It is the far future of the 41st millennium>She fears she alone will not have the strength to save them like she has in the halcyon days when problems were far less grandiose and could hug her mother and brother at any time she could want>It's time for her come out of the dark and become a light>Cue the title card for Merc Command's Warhammer 40k QuestI just pulled this out of my ass on the spot and halfassed in aiming for dramatic effect than logical processes. So I'm probably gonna agree with you on whatever problems you might find.
>>3565030On second thought, it may not be entirely hopeless for Carol to start her own family if we consider that the original Invaders managed to consume genetic material and reproduced asexually like some plants or animals (although it would still be beneficial to have genetic diversity).Maybe Egan or Vahlen can help out in that regard if they're not busy studying Lewis and Lucina's kids.
>>3564392"Well well well, look who finally decided to show up to work." Hank grins wryly. "Must've been a nice vacation, kid.""Ha ha." You groan as you pretty much drag yourself into the office."Lewis, you look rather fatigued." G points out, her artificial eyes carefully scanning you. "Would you like some tea?""No, I'm fine, thanks." You sigh as you plop yourself down in a chair."Jeez, she's right, you look almost dead on your feet." Hank whistles. "Did the cops rough you up in lockup?""...something like that." You respond simply, not willing to tell him the whole truth. Meanwhile, your attention wanders to a nearby television which was streaming the latest news, and you catch sight of a familiar face. Good old Wesker in a mugshot. Served that bastard right. "We've just received an official comment from Umbrella concerning the incident at their underground research facility beneath Raccoon City." The reporter on the screen announces. "It appears former Umbrella Director of Operations Albert Wesker has officially been let go from the company, and is currently in custody facing charges of criminal negligence-""Good to see you back, Lewis." Nemo smiles as she puts a reassuring hand on your shoulder and winks. "Lucy wasn't too rough on you, I hope.""Well, I'm still alive, so that's something." You mumble. Artya, who's next to Nemo, just gives a silent thumbs up, obviously glad you're back as well. "Lewis, this is no time to lounge around." HK frowns, arms crossed like a disappointed nanny. "We've got quite the backlog and the company finances are stretched to their limit. The Boss will be quite cross if you continue to slack off.""Yeah, yeah, I get it." You groan as you force yourself back to your feet. "Back to work, I guess."(cont)
>>3565528UMBRELLA CORPORATIONAfter the destruction of Birkin's lab, Umbrella spun the entire situation, citing a catastrophic reactor breach and pinning the blame on Wesker, who without Nemesis as a bargaining chip had nothing to prevent his fate. He was subsequently fired from the company, and is currently engaged in numerous criminal and civil lawsuits. Even if he ends up prevailing, the hit to his reputation would be so large that no corp would ever take the risk of hiring him. As for Vahlen, despite her involvement in the Nemesis Project, Oswell still saw value in her work, and he needed a replacement for the loss of Birkin, who is presumed dead from the destruction of his lab. Vahlen is now one of Umbrella's top ranking scientists, though she works under quite a bit more scrutiny now, which should hopefully moderate some of her more reckless tendencies...Hunk, who smartly stayed neutral in the internal conflict between Spencer and Wesker, currently remains in his position as part of the Umbrella Special Service. (cont)
>>3565554SOPMODDespite offers from the Boss, SOPMOD opted not to leave Umbrella's employ, citing her reasons being that Lewis was "too much of a Boy Scout", and she preferred working with Hunk. Her near suicidal bloodthirst combined with Hunk's professionalism and dedication to the mission continues to provide some sort of baffling synergy that allows them to complete even the most impossible of tasks. Nobody has been able (or brave enough) to convince SOPMOD to give up her hobby of collecting "trophies" of her kills, even if it does prove to be a big biohazard risk. (cont)
>>3565568GHOST CORPSWith Lewis back, it's business as usual in the office, with Lewis and HK being the primary earners. Despite his constant complaints about desk work and repeated desire to retire, Hank still continues to be a constant presence in the office, providing whatever sage advice he can. However, it's still G that handles the majority of the his workload, a duty that the T-Doll doesn't seem to mind. Nemo and Artya likewise continue their support duties, and continue to reject offers to move to larger corps. And the Boss? Well, she continues to have ambitions to grow the business, though what exactly that entails has yet to be seen...(cont)

>>3565592CAROLCarol seems just as happy and energetic as ever, despite having to yet again kill another of her kind. She continues to be and actor and model, drawing the admiration of the public the world over. She also continues fostering her big sister instincts, preparing herself to be "Auntie Carol" despite the numerous denials from Lewis and Lucina that they plan to have children any time soon. (cont)

>>3565616HKHK continues to act as Lewis' partner, providing him support on the job. However, despite her intended purpose to solely be a combat unit, HK has been caught on several occasions researching "alternative roles". Notably, based on her internet search histories, HK seems to have taken an interest in cooking, housework, and childcare. She also spends inordinate mounts of time datalinking with G. To say that there won't be any potential friction between her and Carol down the line would be highly optimistic...(cont)

>>3565625Surprised no friction with Luciana either?
>>3565625LEWIS AND LUCINADespite their previous collaborations, Lewis and Lucina remain on opposite sides of the law, with Lewis as an independent Hunter that skirts it and Lucina as the chief of the RCPD trying to enforce it. Some outside observers would go so far as saying they prefer it this way, as they enjoy the constant cat and mouse game they play with each other during work hours. On the personal side, Lewis has been working hard to rebuild his old family ranch, with a few improvements and expansions, as if he was planning to have it host more people than it once used to. Lucina has also been sighed there on occasion, ostensibly to help but Lewis is rather adamant about her not performing any particularly taxing physical work...(cont)
>>3565638Pfft, thought so.And oh shit she is definitely pregnant.
>>3565638At least there aren't any outlandish rumors going on about them.
>>3565638YUS! It finally happened!
>>3565650I wanted HK lewds...
>>3565643The question is when. Did we accidentally send a pregnant woman to steal away Sop without being aware?
>>3565638Egan stares at the screen as lines of code scroll past, her eyes drinking in every bit of data. After all these years of hard work, she could afford to have it all go up in smoke due to one misplaced line of code. "My my, you're quite tense today, aren't you?" A smug, smooth voice purrs through a set of speakers."I admit, using a magical crystal-based processor was one of my ideas, but I never thought I'd be able to actually achieve it within my lifetime." Egan says bluntly as she turns to the special communications device she had developed.It was nothing but a transparent sheet of crystal, salvaged from Loki's spaceship. There were several devices attached to it, running currents of energy through the material, making it vibrate at a very particular frequency, allowing one to see things normally invisible to human perception.A black cat slides into view, just on the other side of the pane. It sits there, its natural smirk emanating pure self confidence and indulgence. "Well, you never had me around to give you a few technical pointers, right?" Loki says happily."I admit, I was a bit skeptical about whether you really existed or were merely a figment of Alice's imagination." Egan crosses her arms. "I never imagined my casual curiosity would result int such a grand undertaking.""One of the things I love about you humans." Loki chuckles, his tail swishing back and forth. "Now, this is unknown territory, even for me. My species never really considered pursuing artificial intelligence, so I can't guarantee the components will work as intended.""Then we'll improvise." Egan glances at A2's sleeping body. "Lucina's test results came back. We're going to have to step up the deadline.""Oh? Then the rumors are true?" Loki's cat smile somehow widens even further. "Then what are we waiting for? I'm so excited to see what your and Alice's genetics will spawn!""It's unknown territory for all of us." Egan nods as she returns to her console and hits the EXECUTE key.And pair of artificial eyes flutter open, exposed to light for the very first time...THE END>And that's it for Bioweapon Hunter! Thanks to everybody who's read and enjoyed the quest and stayed with it until the end!>Next week will be a new quest where we'll be returning to the world of ACE COMBAT, so don't miss it!
>>3565677Thanks for the run, Merc.Wanted to post while I was at home, but fuck it.
>>3565677Thanks for the quest Merc. Here's to Sick Tricks, Borders, and Saipan Guitars.
>>3565677So we will finally have a chance to see the spawn of Jager and Karla huh?Can't wait.
>>3565721Inb4 it's your favorite AC main protagonist.
>>3565721I'm concerned about the state of Strangereal post Endless Skies and AC7. Probably a bit of anti-Belkan sentiment if the truth got out.
>>3565677Reminder that Belka did nothing wrong.
Hopefully, Lucy sees only the best of the experience of carrying a child rather than the possible comically exaggerated symptoms that would send an unmodified woman to the hospital. (That, or becoming Magical Lucy-chan)Also, who attended the wedding? There was a wedding, right......?
>>3565889Silence is our only answer. Also EAGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>3565677Thanks for the quest Merc! I'll definitely be there for your next one!
>>3565889Everybody important, of course!
>>3566002It was just Carol impersonating everyone, wasn't it?
>>3566013Now that you mention it, she could shapeshift as Lucina to hide the fact that the real one is with child.
>>3566013I might be lying if I said she totally didn't cheat just a bit to get the bouquet.
>>3566078So did Lucina learn about lewds from HK or vice versa/
>>3566208Probably learned it herself.It must have been one hell of a night for the two of them to actually get them tired. Lewds between modified post-humans must be fucking intense.
>>3566228And ST-AR was watching. The whole time.Just to make sure Lucina is okay, of course.
When do we get to play as Carols daughter?
Something I just realized recently is that Lewis and Lucina's occupations may result in some character drama in the future. With Lucina having to be dedicated to keeping the peace, and Lewis travelling to all sorts of exotic places, their kid/s has to be under the guardianship of either Alice, Carol, or Egan when what they really want is to spend time with mom, and dad.>>3565889>>3566078I wouldn't be surprised if Carol became even more enthused in the wedding planning than everyone else by demanding specific dining utensils, getting live music, decorating, and even shapeshifting into Lewis and Lucina to help them pick what sort of clothes to wear as a preview.
>>3567847>implying Egan isn't already making a T-Doll specifically for their children.
>>3567847>Alice tries to get the grandkids to not to use their powers>Egan tries to get the grandkids to use their powersIf Carol is that into wedding planning for other people, god help everyone when it's her turn.
Can we be Carol's Husbando/Waifu in the next run?
>>3568378Maybe, if they could somehow find a way to attain immortality.
>>3566777>implying that the ULTIMATE LIFEFORM needs children
>>3569733>implying she doesn't want children
>>3567847>the kid dresses up a Magical Girl after hearing stories from Alice, and with encouragement from Loki>sneaks out at night to fight crime until one night she finally gets caught by Lucina investigating rumours of a vigilante>cue the long talk in the back of the car as they drive to the police station
One last hurrah before the thread is done. And hope that the two don't have too many crazy misadventures while waiting for the baby to come out.
