Shadow Network: Thrill of the Haunt
Sorry, Melody, but it is exactly who you think it is in there. Flames obscure the door’s window for a moment. Once the flames settle down from wildfire-level, all that remains is a pile of ashes where the Director once was, a scorched room, a demon slayer and a girl who is starting to face her biggest enemy: horrible data connection. If Melody opened the door, the ashes would spiral out on a gust from out of nowhere.

Though some ice was reflected and froze the director’s limbs, he laughed as if he were having the time of his life. “Wonderful! WONDERFUL! Now let’s change things up...” The same ice attack, although completely missing Dante. Rather, it was aimed anywhere BUT Dante - trying to freeze both Sana and the rest of the room. The director was close to death, but his worries were absent. “I feel young again!” —- The lab areas are empty except for a surgical room at the end of the hall. A gargantuan humanoid in white clothes was slicing into a body on an operating table. A zombie-like nurse would occasionally give him tools from a small sliding rack. On the other end of the room was an empty table with shackles for wrists and ankles.

The window Melody looked into revealed the director, Dante, and Sana. All roads lead to Rome, it seems. The bullets pierced the director’s body like a rock against wet paper. Even as he was thrown into the ceiling, he cackled. “A rily patient! How fun! Go on, burn up your anger so we can sedate you later!” His hands, drained of life yet still strong as iron, gripped the ceiling to keep himself in place. Multiple icicles formed across the room before crashing down. Upon hitting the ground, they would burst outward into needle-like shards.

The door opened, revealing a long hallway. Only one person was walking down at the moment, but they soon entered a room off to the side. The various rooms had windows on the doors which allowed Melody to glance inside. They were mostly surgical areas and rooms with beds. For a hospital-like setting, though, there was a concerning amount of rust and black goo. --- "Kehehe... a good guess, but it's been done to death already. A little chaos is more fun." The man smiled and pushed open the door. His outfit was elegant but out of this century. He had the appearance of a count, or perhaps a vampire lord due to his skeletal hands and oddly-colored skin. His smile wasn't friendly, but rather amused. "I'm just the director of this place, not the boss. You'd be better off looking for the chimera... It's near, but you're not getting close to it. The head surgeon's the one protecting it. Speaking of that fellow, I should call his associates. You two look like you need some... bodily reconstruction."

The sound echoed off the metal all around, giving Melody a clear image of the area. While there wasn't much more than pipes near the green core, there was an indentation that suggested a door at the other end of the room. There were also walkways along the walls for the shadowy blobs to move along. There was also a... concerning sound of something collapsing in the distance but there was no visible damage as far as Melody could "see." --- Alice managed to dodge most of the bullets with surprising agility, although she still barely managed to keep herself together - literally. She scowled at the two down below as they fell. The fall was at least five stories, passing wood floor and then stone. The place where the two landed was dimly lit with green light and some flickering fluorescent ones. Various surgical equipment was scattered around. Outside the only door's window, the two could see a white-haired man with a black cape walking by.

Melody could see that the waterfall crashed down onto red-hot metal pipes, bathing them in water and steam. A few pipes around the room leaked a green liquid, but all were connected to a green sphere. Inside the sphere was... something. It was hard to call it anything besides an “amalgamation.” It was as if someone took many creatures and frankensteined them into a nonsense monster, complete with bad stitching. Shadowy blobs were scattered around. Some worked on the hissing machinery, and some just lazed around the core’s base. The black and green color scheme of the area gave it the appearance of a secret laboratory. —- Alice had not expected Dante to handle her attack that well, nor for the doppelgänger to rush in to gang up on her. The ground shook with the sheer force of the assault. Once the sawdust finally faded, Alice was nowhere to be seen. “You... you’re supposed to be just a human plaything! Big Bro said nothing about this!” Looking up would reveal the girl sitting on the edge of a break in the ceiling. Her shadowy insides somehow managed to hold her nearly-broken body together. She swung her legs back and forth in the open air. “I don’t wanna play this anymore... you’re too old to play with anyway.” The shadows of the hole in the ceiling burst downwards and through a few floors below. “Go play with Big Bro instead. He couldn’t see the rest of this, so he needs to meet you down there so he can make a scary thing just for you!”

A minute after Melody’s raft passed the halfway point, leathery wings beat against air and water. A bat-like creature rocketed at the girl from behind. A broken screech rang out... But was silenced in an instant. A wet <i>crunch</i> halted the bat. Its body caved in, twisted and pierced by <i>something</i>. Whatever force had caught the creature had come as soon as it heard splashing. The force continued to chew the poor creature as Melody moved onward. She could see pipes hissing steam at the end of the passageway. The water itself picked up speed and would inevitably cascade as a waterfall onto something unseen. —- All the punishment the tiger had taken was enough to let its life be ended by the final assault. It roared and melted into the floor, both its white fur and the area becoming dark. Despite the dim light, Alice’s shadows were clear as day. Alice herself took quite a beating as well, since she was completely defenseless from the disorienting actions of Sana. “This isn’t fun anymore. I can’t play right like this! Just DIE!” The vortex of shadows finally burst. Much stronger than before, the shadows’ spikes pierced all around Alice all the way up to the ceiling. Though the girl was mostly blinded, the attack’s area of effect nature and long range made up for that.

For the sake of time, I assume only these three are actually still active. The others on this journey will be seen as either lost or defeated until further notice. The water was almost impossible to avoid, as the tunnel edges had mere centimeters of dry land. Melody could feel liquid dripping down on her halfway through the tunnel. A warm breeze touched the top of her head. It felt humid and yet chilling. —- The heated strikes scorched the tiger’s fur as easily as a flame against frost. Blow after blow struck the beast despite its attempts to counterattack. It let out one last roar then leapt back with one leg stuck at an odd angle. It narrowed its eyes at Sana. “Bya-chan, don’t worry about her! Play with him instead.” Alice winked and twirled her finger. More shadows spread out, but this time, they spiraled like a vortex beneath her feet. “Mister Demon Hunter, Big Bro will be angry if you kill his eyes. And your friend here’s reeeeally bad at tag. She’s not moving at all! But I guess I can’t stop you from chasing Bya-chan, so I’ll play with her instead! Maybe she’ll actually know how to play dead!”

It has been long enough. The wheel of fate is turning. Melody would meet no resistance as she descended the stairs. Assuming she didn’t jump into the local spider’s hole, she would find that the next set of stairs led to a sewer-like passageway with knee-deep (but oddly clear) water. The tunnel’s lights gave the water a green hue. If she listened closely she would hear the faint hiss of water turning to steam in the distance. —- Alice and her pet stood there for a moment, too surprised by their barrier being ruined to act. The girl laughed and stuck out her tongue once she leapt away from Dante’s slam attack. “Haha, missed-“ The bullet slammed into the back of her head. Despite the bullet exiting her forehead, the black insides re-formed. Alice groaned, both from the pain and the lingering poison. “I don’t feel so well... Bya-chan, let’s get some fresh air. Megidolaon!” The tiger was more than happy to oblige. Though the white explosion was clearly weakened, it was enough to deal some serious damage to Dante and the ice wall. The tiger assisted with a flurry of blows that lashed at those same targets. The girl would then leap over the frozen remains and dash out the doorway. She didn’t even notice Sana on her way out. “Gotta continue the game, too~!” She wasn’t the fastest, so Dante could catch up if he got Bya-chan out of the way.

“The stairs could lead you down there, or even the hole. Either is a route, my child.” For a possible Shadow, Mother Tudo was being very cooperative. —- The white tiger had been prepared for gunshots, but not the sudden switch to melee. Dante’s strikes left deep black gashes in its white fur. Though dazed from the perfume, Alice managed to get out of the way. The little girl pouted. “You’re supposed to run away, not fight! You’re no fun. Could you please die for me?” Shadows formed under the girl’s feet. They spread out, then formed spikes that struck from both above and below. Her pet took this chance to leap back and form an icy wall between the two and Dante. —- Those fleeing would notice a number of possible routes. The wooden panel leading up was still loose in the ceiling, able to be pulled down with a string. There was also the stairs leading back to the living room, as well as another set at the end of the hall that hadn’t been there before... although that set felt ominous.

Shadow Network: Thrill of the Haunt
Despite it being a few months away from Halloween, someone has turned an old boarded-up house into a creepily-decorated attraction. A green mist flows out of the doorway, and cobwebs and orange and black decorations litter the porch. Anyone passing by could see some movement inside beyond the &quot;Take One&quot; candy bowl at the front steps.
Shadow Network: Virus Infestation
Tokyo was a bustling city, and as such, any problems with transportation threw a wrench into the works of this well-oiled machine. For the past day, the entire subway line has been shut down. The official statement claimed this was due to a major gas leak, but over time, that was becoming harder to believe. A green mist flowed out of any opening it could find. It was contained in the tunnels for now, but rumors of creatures within surfaced. By noon of the following day, the guards at one of the subway entrances had inexplicably vanished. Yellow tape was the only thing between everyone else and the tunnels, yet few dared to venture close... much less inside.

Creeping Creation, Creeping Death
Once again, an anomaly has come to the park. At a glance, everything is normal. No weird rift like a few days ago. However, staring at a certain spot revealed a slight quivering bulge in the ground, like a tumor in the earth. The grass on it is a dull, drained gray-green color.
Swords of Rest and Guilt
A sliver of rainbow light cuts through the air of the park. Literally. It's like a splinter of light in the air, in place and throbbing like an open wound.

She sits next to the machine, sipping some kind of smoothie.
