Re: Chapter 2 - Rapture
As the sub descends a white canvas drops down over the clear glass front blocking the view. A before unseen projector clicks on and begins a movie.
" Incenerate! Light a fire inside! " With a man lighting a cigaretty with some really small lighter or a lighter that fits on your finger, something strange. Must be some lighter to be on the opening ad for whatever this place was.
Then the menacing head from the lighthouse appeared with a 3 piece suit and pipe sitting on a nice leather couch. And began a long speech (this guy is intense) "evils of socialism and people not earning the money they are forcing people to give" end speech with "But I choose something different, I choose the impossible! I choose...(canvas lifts and video shuts off) Rapture! As the canvas lifts the sub comes up over the top of a cliff and looks down the valley at... the impossible. A full fledged city, skyscrapers, billboards, elevated sealed pathways between building.
All of it underwater! Neon signs lit up a passing school of fish and a pod of whales swam gracefully through the city as if it was a normal part of the sea! Jack was dumbstruck by this ridiculous undersea metropolis. The pod moved closer to the city and Jack could make out lights scattered throughout the cities towers and even what he, hoped were shadows. As the pod approached one of the sealed walkways he could see a flashing spark, and as it got closer he could see that it was a person in a diving suit doing maintenance on the walkway with a torch. Jack was washed over with a great sense of relief at the sight and was now very hopeful that he might get home. The sub began pulling into a hole that must be the docking station and all the sudden a radio that had been lost under a seat came to life.
Two men were speaking back and forth rapidly, it was halfway through a conversation but they were saying something about an explosion up top! And that a transport was headed down. The man in charge was definitely Irish and told the other to come meet the transport and bring the person inside safely back. Safely back? And the man getting told what to sounded a bit scared about what he was getting ready to do. Hmm that's not a good sign. Well at least there are people down here, and he was confident it was just a little paranoid of him. The sub went past a few more ads for various strange things before it finally docked. There in front of him was a man, with a radio, walking cautiously towards the glass door of the sub.
Suddenly the man looked up and began sprinting to the sub, yelling for Jack to let him in. Jack started opening the door and the man was almost at it when a jagged looking man jumped down from above and gutted him with what looked like meat hooks and then with one swift move lopped off his head. Jack quickly shut and secured the door. The creature came to the glass window and looked in, he...wait it's a she was wearing a tattered suit and what appeared to be a bloody mardi gras mask. She then screamed and jumped on the sub Jack began looking for something to defend himself with. Seeing the lever he began trying to snap it off while the woman began trying to tear a hole in the top of the sub! The woman was somehow succeeding in punching a hole in whatever strong substance this sub was made of and Jack began to panic wildly jerking the lever. All of the sudden a loud bang sounded outside and the woman jumped off and ran for her life.
