This is an RP that was conducted on IRC. I find it difficult to sort through logs filled with timestamps and chatting unrelated to the RP, so I decided to edit out a lot of the clutter and reformat our dialogue. Other than a few typos and some other minor things corrected for the sake of flow, this is our RP warts and all. This reformatting might be against the spirit of RP logs, but I was aiming for improved readability. If you disagree and you think this should be moved to the fiction section, let me know. Thanks to Idoro of course for being my partner in crime on this one. Enjoy! Where The Sun Don't Shyne Ryona Master (TheCrimsonRisk) "Shyne, thank God you're here!" The fireman looks ecstatic to see you, waving you over to the destruction that you had already spotted from the sky. You heard conflicting reports about a gas explosion or maybe some kind of robbery gone wrong. All you know for sure is that there were people hurt and they needed your help. "We're tryin' to clear a path down to these lower levels," he says, coughing as soot and dust drifts through the air. "We're sure there's people trapped down there. Any chance you could help us out?" Shyne (Idoro) Madelyn Amael, known to most by her superhero alias, Shyne arrived as fast as she could, stepping off of her cycle. Long, raven-black hair and delicate bangs hung from her head and she wore her normal costume, grey top, bikini bottoms boots and gloves with indigo trim. Amethyst eyes and her famous four-pointed star crest sat upon her head, her full form coming into view and her cape billowing behind her due to the wind and smoke. She looked absolutely stunning, and didn't even know it. But now, she was not concerned with her appearance. Right now, she needed to do all she could to help. She had thought about contacting some of her teammates to join her, but decided she could probably handle this one alone. She met the fireman's gaze with a kind smile and walked a little past him, looking to the building. "Is it safe to go through the main entrance?" RM For a moment, the fireman says nothing and it's only after a few awkward seconds that you realize his eyes have been locked onto the cleavage peaking out of your top. "Err...uh...what? Oh, yes, the main entrance. Head right on in. We've been trying to access the elevator shafts to get down, but we don't have the kind of equipment that can clear out all that rubble." "Just be careful in there." Shyne Shyne smiled. She was well used to receiving this kind of treatment, and while it used to annoy her, she found it sort of cute now. She even made sure to nod in a way that would make her breasts jiggle a bit before saying, "Thanks, I will!" and walking off to the entrance. Shyne thinks to herself, "I'm such a dork sometimes..", her cheeks flushing slightly at what she just did as she opens the door and steps inside. RM You're surrounded by firemen, police officers, paramedics and volunteers doing their best to sort out the chaos. They're pulling bodies out in various conditions, occasionally glancing up at you with a desperate look. Loose wires hang from the ceiling and small fires are scattered around the area, mostly under control. You see some men digging away at the elevator shaft, making a Herculean effort to clear the area but progressing slowly. A man sits next to the shaft, exhausted and sobbing. Shyne Shyne immediately heads to the elevator shaft, doing her best to look to those that are looking to her in desperation and smiling. Once she is there, she looks to those working on the elevator and then to the sobbing man. Something bad definitely happened. She places a hand on the shoulder of one of the shaft workers and says, "Perhaps I could be of assistance?" RM The man looks at your skimpy costume and chuckles, looking somewhat unimpressed. "Sure. You got a bulldozer in your panties, sweetheart?" Shyne Shyne chuckles slightly, crossing her arms. "Oh, you're a riot. But in all seriousness, allow me to try this." Shyne unfolds her arms, and her hands begin to give off a soft glow. RM The worker's eyes widen and he's pulled back by another man who looks to be more familiar with your work. All of the nearby workers seem to sense something is about to go down and they clear out, some of them taking cover. All eyes are on you, waiting to see you do your thing. Shyne Shyne waits for everyone to clear the way, and then holds both of her arms out in front of her, aiming her palms at the elevator doors. The soft glow on her palms begins to brighten.. and brighten.. and brighten.. until finally, it resembles the brightness of a 500-watt work light.. and only then, does she release the pent-up energy.. ..Directly at the elevator doors! RM Your shining beam draws appreciative gasps from the onlookers, cutting a clean swath through the obstruction. This would have taken them hours to get through and potentially put a lot of men in danger, but your powers make a clear path. Unfortunately, you can't be sure how safe it is and the shaft is a long ways down. Perhaps it would be best if you went in first... Shyne Shyne looks to the astonished onlookers for a second. She was very modest, but liked to take in a little bit of the glory from time to time. She makes her way towards the destructed shaft and looks down. It looks pretty far, but if one of the cords was still in place, it shouldn't be a problem to slip down.. and even if she fell, she was certain she would survive the fall. Still, better safe than sorry. Just to check, she held her hand up, palm facing upwards and formed a small, glowing orb. She then flung it down the shaft to see how far down it would go. RM The worker who seemed to recognize you before comes over with a large rope. "Shyne! Hey, good to see ya! Ya probably don't remember me, but you flew my kid to the hospital one time. There was this accident and...you know what, don't worry about that for now. Just know that I'll never forget it." He approaches you and motions that he's going to tie the rope around your waist. "Sorry, I know it ain't the best set-up but we'll do our best to lower you slowly." He gives you a hearty thumbs up as the other men get ready to hold on to the rope. When you look down the shaft again you can just make out your orb at the bottom. It's a tiny blip at this point. "If you see anyone down there, tell them to come back to the shaft and we'll figure out a way to get them up, okay?" Shyne Shyne quickly agrees to the plan, seeing the man give his thanks and smiling kindly. She remembered that one. She raises her arms, allowing them to tie it around her. Her cheeks were a little pink once again, not for being tied but.. well, she was a little embarrassed that she couldn't do something that most superheroes were famous to be able to do.. fly. RM They lower you down the shaft as gently as they can, but it starts to get more cramped the lower you go and you're occasionally bounced off the rocks. You realize it's a good thing that you're made of sterner stuff, because any normal human would definitely have been injured making this descent. As you reach the bottom, your orb fizzles out but you can see the lights from the underground parking garage flickering on and off. The sound of car alarms and the crackle of electricity greet you. You definitely hear some people crying for help. One voice seems to be coming from a supply closet and another from a nearby car. Shyne Shyne wastes no time, her bumps and scratches minor. She immediately heads towards the car, looking it over for its condition and the location of the one calling for help. RM You see a hysterical woman beating against the window of her car, a large rock leaning against it. "HELP ME! PLEASE HELP!" Shyne "Oh no!" Shyne immediately rushes towards the rock, posting both hands against it and attempting to push it off. She had no idea how heavy it was, but she had to at least try.. RM Your determination pays off as usual and you manage to get the rock out of the way. The woman nearly hits you with the door as she falls out of the vehicle. She gives you a firm hug and tries to speak, but she's hysterical. "Who...wha...ho...who..." Shyne Shyne smiles, patting the woman's head as affectionately as she can. "It's okay, you're going to be safe now.." She was often the voice of safety in times like these, and liked to think she had become rather good at it. She then looks to the supply closet and then to the woman, "I need to see if there's anyone else who needs help in here.. did you see or hear anyone by chance?" RM Your kind nature does a lot to calm her down and she manages to compose herself for a moment. "Yes, most certainly yes. I heard a man in there and he don't sound like he doin' too good. I'm not sure if he trapped or injured or..." She covers her mouth, not wanting to consider the possibilities. "What do I do now?" Shyne "Okay... head towards the shaft and wait for me there.. I'm going to see if I can't help out anymore people." A quick smile and she was off, towards the supply closet. Once she reached it, she walked in close, examining it before opening it up.. also trying to see if she could hear any voices. "Is someone there? I've come to help!" RM The woman continues to thank you profusely before going back to the shaft repeating a prayer. You can hear the workers shout down to her and you feel confident they'll take care of her. As you enter the closet, it's a little bigger than you expected. Most of the supplies are scattered on one side of the room. Sitting in a corner is an old man wearing grey coveralls. He's balled up and shivering. "Who's there? Who's there? Who's there?" Shyne Shyne looks to the old man, unsure of his condition.. she walks towards him slowly, taking caution just in case he jumps out at her suddenly. Even one as strong as her must take risks. "It's me, M- er.. Shyne.. I've come to rescue you!" RM "Shyne...Shine...shining so brightly..." It's unclear if he's all there right now. The explosion seems to have startled him badly and you can't be sure what state he was in before. He looks reluctant to leave, but you have no idea how stable this building is right now. Shyne Shyne looks around, checking to see if there were any signs of damage or an impending cave-in. As she did so, she walked closer to the man, noting his hysterical condition. In an attempt to clear his mind, she raises her hand out towards him, allowing some energy flow to give it a soft glow once more. "Please calm down, sir.. It's okay. I'm going to get you out of here." RM He brightens up immediately. "The glow...the GLOW...YES" He reaches out and grabs your wrist harshly. Even though he looks frail, his bony fingers dig in and hurt you. Worse, you feel a chilling sensation run through your body. You see a sparkle in his eyes and know immediately that he's affecting your powers somehow. Shyne Shyne gasps, surprised by his quick reaction, but she initially chalks it up to him possibly being trapped here for a while, unsure if he would ever be able to get out... ...And that assumption is quickly dashed as she suddenly shivers.. looking into his face, she notices that the glow on her hand disappears immediately, and his grip starts to hurt. "Nnh.." she groans softly as she pulls her arm away. RM His expression flickers between joy and sorrow as the light from your body seems to drain into him. "Sorry...so sorry...so sorry...so hungry!" There's a small burst of light between the two of you and you’re shot out of the room. The old man crumples to the ground, energy emitting from his frail figure. You hear a loud explosion from the direction of the shaft followed by panicked cries. You see the shaft fill with dust and debris again. You hear heavy footsteps nearby as the lights flicker on and off again. Shyne The words spoken by the man unsettle Shyne, her mouth opening in shock... but only for a second.. for she was soon flying in the air, out of the room. "Ayaa!!" Shyne lands on her side, unhurt from the collision but a little rattled. She quickly recovers and stands up once more, looking inside the storage room, but quickly having her attention taken from that to the loud explosion from the direction of the shaft.. The lights begin to flicker, and she can hear footsteps. Whatever is going on, it can't be good.. she turns towards where she believes the footsteps to be coming from and stands her ground, holding her hands out. "Who goes there?!" RM "Hello my dear," you hear from the menacing man standing in front of you. His mask muffles his voice and his accent is of unclear origin. He's huge, wearing long black military pants and a black tank top. Tubes extend from a metal pack on his back to his gloved hands. His black mask has a white front with two large red ovals meant to look like eyes. You recognize him as the criminal mastermind Bane. You'd never crossed paths with him before, especially since he normally dealt with street level vigilantes but here he was standing before you. "Pardon all of these theatrics, but I just had to meet you." Shyne Shyne does her best to not seem visibly shaken.. because inside, she is. She grits her teeth and assumes a more defensive stance.. She knew Bane well by hearing stories of him from the inner circle of superheroes she often conversed with.. but to see him in person.. This was someone who had much more experience as a villain than she had as a heroine, but she couldn't help but feel a little prideful of the fact that he was seeking her out... though to what end, she did not know. "You.. wanted to me meet me?" she asked coyly, smirking in defiance. "I suppose I should be honored or something." RM "Yes, well..." before Bane can continue, you are attacked again! You know it's the old man when you feel his wrinkled paws grabbing you. One arm wraps around your waist, the hand resting against your thigh. The other hand is far more intrusive, reaching up to squeeze your breasts. Again, you feel your powers waning. "Eee hee hee! Sorry sorry sorry! Hee hee hee!" he cackles. Shyne Before she can decipher why Bane trails off suddenly, she feels herself being grabbed in several areas. She gasps once more, being caught by surprise again, and her body immediately stiffens. The hand on her breast immediately forces her to open her eyes wide. "Wha... you..!" At once, Shyne protests by putting her hands on the man's arms and attempting to wrench them off of her, feeling her energy begin to wane. She needed to do this quickly! She couldn't leave herself open, especially with Bane of all people.. standing right there! "Get.. off of me you creep!" In one forceful tug, she attempts to pull the man off. RM The man lets go, but it's clear that the brief moments he's touched you were more than enough to suck out your light. You couldn't produce the flicker of a candle at this point. As you tug on him, he giggles and scurries over to Bane. He continues to apologize to nobody in particular. "Ah, I see you've met Dr. Light. Forgive his rudeness. You see, I've had him locked up in a dungeon for the better part of the last...oh, two months and, well, it's been so long since he's eaten." Bane glares down at Dr. Light who cowers. The giant man motions for Light to leave and he flies off into the darkness, rejuvenated. "The good doctor will continue the chaos up above giving you and I time to become better acquainted down here." Shyne Shyne pants, hardly having lifted a finger, but feeling tired for some odd reason. 'I feel drained for some reason... like.. I can't use my power..' As Bane explains who the old man is, and what exactly it is he was doing, she opens her eyes wide in terror.. her powers over light ARE gone. 'This can't be..' she thinks, 'how is that even possible?!' Gulping, she looked around herself, feeling a cold sweat coming on. She still had her heightened abilities.. but compared to Bane's raw power, they're meager. ...This could be bad. Shyne shook her head, putting on her confident face once more. "What do you mean by better acquainted?" She took a defensive stance once more, doing her best to hide her shock. (end of part 1) RM When last we left our dear Shyne, her powers had been surpressed by the grim touch of Dr. Light. She had descended into a collapsing building to rescue people, but the whole thing appears to have been a sinister trap. Standing across from her now is the criminal mastermind Bane. Without her energy powers, is there any way she can defeat him? The cracking of Bane's knuckles echo throughout the underground area. He's big and mean looking, but you've fought bigger and meaner before. Then again, you had your powers too. "As you can see, the elevator shaft is no longer an option. Not that you could fly out anyway. The only way out is through me." As Bane speaks, you see some of his henchmen emerge from their hiding spots. Several of them seem to be carrying cameras and other recording equipment. "Tell my, Shyne. Do you wish to know how you find yourself in this predicament?" Shyne Shyne looks around, seeing the henchmen gather around.. Not exactly the type of attention she was hoping for down here.. Gotham was far away from Los Angeles, that was for sure.. but she had heard stories of the villains who plagued the city and others.. Bane was one of them, and she was well-aware of his potential. She assumed a fighting stance, feeling not a single ounce of energy within her. This was going to be... very tough. And seeing that video equipment.. her reputation was on the line. Shyne put on her gameface and smirked confidently. "Yeah.. why is it that you chose to come so far from where you normally operate?" RM "Money would be the easy answer, wouldn't it?" He finished cracking his knuckles and dusted his hands off. "But I'm a man of particular tastes and that wouldn't be enough normally. It is what you represent that fascinates me." He picks up a piece of debris, a long metal bar. "Peace. Hope." He shoots you a salacious glance. "Beauty." The bar looks extremely heavy, but he twirls it in his hands. "My employer wants to send a message to all of the costumed heroes...and heroines that prowl the streets these days making life so difficult for us. What better way than to snuff out one of the brightest beacons of virtue and goodness." He chuckles. "Even your name...Shyne. It is delightfully optimistic." He bends the metal bar in his hands like it is made of silly putty. "So that is why instead of a bomb inside that closet, you found Dr. Light. He has weakened you. I will beat you. I will humiliate you. And then I will break you." Shyne Shyne tried to hide the discomfort she was feeling right now, inside. So, she was to be made an example of? In her home city no less.. 'No way...' she thought to herself. 'I'm not going to let this guy intimidate me that easily.. I'm Shyne.. I've kept LA safe for months now.. it's not about to end here!' Making a quick decision, Shyne grabbed the crest from atop her head and held it aloft like a boomerang. "I'm afraid you're not going to be able to report to your employer then, Bane. Because you won't be seeing him for a while behind bars!" "Now, taste this!" she said, tossing her metal crest straight for Bane's chest! RM Your shot is right on target and a shocked Bane drops the bar and falls to one knee. "Aaaah...ah...the pain...aaah...ah...ha...ha ha...HA HA HA HA HA..." Shyne Shyne raises her fist quickly in victory as her attack succeeds... her crest quickly making its way back to her hand, that she catches.. But as she is about to follow up, she stops when she notices that Bane doesn't seem to be as affected by her attack as she had hoped.. She quickly attaches the crest to her head once more and points a finger at Bane. "There's more where that came from. We don't have to prolong this, Bane. Come along quietly and you may be let out on good behavior.." Clearly, he would listen to reason.. right? RM Your request only makes him laugh harder. "Oooh ho ho, Shyne. Your plucky attitude has exceeded my expectations. Pity that my target audience is not looking for a comedy." He straightens up and starts to walk toward you with bad intentions. He's about 12 feet away...10...6... Shyne Her first reaction would be to back away.. but she cannot show fear. 'I am Shyne, protector of this city..' she thinks to herself.. 'And no one is going to keep me from my duty!' With a yell, she lunges forward once he is in range and punches him straight in the gut! RM Once again your attack is on point, but there's no faking this time. Your enhanced strength has felled many an evil doer in the past, but this time it's like punching a boulder. He looks down at you and tilts his head, amused. He raises his hand and taps his mask with his finger as if prompting you to punch his face. Shyne "Huh-that's.." Growling, she falls for the taunt and launches another punch to Bane's face, putting more oomph behind this one! 'He has to feel this..' RM Your fist pushes his face to the right, but it is more like someone turning to cough than actually registering any damage. The goons all "ooh" and "aah" in an exaggerated fashion, but you can tell some of them are getting restless. "Please," Bane says. "One more try. Indulge me." Shyne Shyne looks on in Bane for just a second in amazement.. and then takes a step back.. "Okay.. you asked for it.." "Hyaaahh!!" With all of her might, Shyne launches forward, swinging her fist into Bane's face.. By Sol, she hoped it would actually bruise him this time! RM It seems impossible that someone so big could move so quickly, but before your blow can land this time he has a hold of your wrist. He holds on tightly, but not enough to hurt you. No, what comes next is what hurts you. His thick military boot shoots up and lands square in your belly and as he releases you, you are sent flying backwards arms and legs thrusting forward. You only go a short distance as you collide with a support pillar behind you. It shakes from the impact. Shyne As her hand is thrown, it is suddenly seized with amazing speed. This causes Shyne to gasp.. "Ah..?!" She doesn't even see the boot coming, and immediately feels something thick against her exposed belly.. "OOFGH!!" He then suddenly seems to become smaller.. no wait, she's just sailing away.. and SMASH!! "Aggh.." Shyne falls forward, catching herself on her hands and knees. As she sits up, she places a hand on her belly and rubs it. A normal person probably would have been out by that single blow.. but she was a lot tougher than the average person... ...Though she secretly feared that this would actually serve to hinder her in this fight.. meaning she would take more punishment. Getting to her feet, she shook her head, and took up a fighting stance once more. That one didn't go so well.. but perhaps he had a weak spot.. "Not bad.. that actually kind of hurt.." Actually, it hurt plenty, and she was doing her best to hide the pain! RM You notice that he's become a lot less chatty since the fight started. It's unnerving. He moves towards you again maintaining a steady, almost robotic pace. With the pillar behind you, there isn't a lot of room to move. He throws a right cross, smashing you across the face. He follows with a left cross that sends your head back in the other direction. Shyne As Bane strides towards her, Shyne begins to quickly think of ways to defeat this foe.. Before she knows it, WHAM!! Across the face.. She can feel her face glide to the side, her hair waving forward as it follows in the motion.. She doesn't even have time to make a sound as the next blow strikes her as well.. "GYAHH!" She topples over onto her side, whimpering softly as the pain throbs throughout her face.. She places a hand on her face in an attempt to assuage it. 'Okay.. that hurt.. and I'm not afraid to admit it..' she thought. RM Bane gets a handful of your cape and starts to pull on it, dragging you across the ground. He turns hard, ripping it off of you and sending you tumbling along. His goons cheer and he tosses the garment to their grubby hands before stomping towards you again. Shyne "Ahhh!" Shyne cries out as she feels herself being dragged, attempting to hold her ground but not succeeding very well.. She then feels the monster rip off her cape, and gasps... Why would he do such a thing?! She tumbles forward a bit and when she finally stops she stands up, looking more angry than ever.. "Alright.. you're going to pay for that one.." Shyne begins to run forward, twirling into the air and lifting a leg up, seeking to land an aerial roundhouse kick to Bane's neck! RM "Hrrngh" he doesn't quite speak, but for the first time you definitely get a reaction. Perhaps he didn't expect you to have so much fight left. It's only for a moment, then he reaches down with both his hands looking to grab you. Shyne Shyne lands after the blow, hearing his reaction... she is relieved that he seems to have finally reacted painfully to one of her attacks! The only bad thing about that attack.. man, what muscles.. her leg was a little sore. She probably wouldn't be able to make many attacks like th- Suddenly, she feels both of the monster's huge hands upon her. She can only gasp as she turns back to look at Bane, completely caught off-guard! "N-no!" RM His massive hands wrap around your throat and he lifts you clear off your feet. For a moment, it feels like you're flying again but instead you're suspended with his fingers digging into your neck muscles. He flexes his arms, choking you while at the same time squeezing your throat painfully. "Yeeeah!" you hear one thug say. "Kill her boss!" Bane starts to shake his arms, causing your body to tremble. Shyne "Hhgh.." Shyne can do nothing but place her hands on Bane's own, trying to slip them through his thick fingers in an attempt to wrench them off.. As they tighten around her neck, she makes a desperate gasp, moaning in pain at his terrible grip. Her legs flail about as she is choked... and her eyes dart uncontrollably.. RM Your tiny fingers barely register, especially through your soft gloves. "Perhaps tickling would be more effective." he taunts As that silly option registers for a brief moment, he turns and slams you down hard on the hood of a car. A normal human would be flat as a pancake, but your tough body makes a big Shyne shaped dent in it instead. The glass shatters and you can hear the alarm ringing in your ears. Bane raises his fists overhead drawing a roar from the crowd. "Donkey Kong time!" one of the goons chimes in. Shyne Shyne's thoughts are racing.. is she going to die like this? If he did this long enough, she surely would.. ..But her fears are silenced as she is slammed on top of the hood of the car, the impact shooting pain throughout her body.. "Huuagh!!" Sitting within an imprint of herself, she slowly rolls off of the hood, onto the ground and on her back.. Panting.. whimpering.. she looks up at Bane as he roars to the crowd.. And for the first time, she feels fearful of him.. no longer able to hide her reservations.. Her chest heaves up and down slowly as she tries to recover.. hurting too much to move.. "Nnhh.." She finally sits up halfway, her head feeling heavy and slightly dizzy as she does so... She closes her eyes and places a hand on her forehead.. RM In a show of force, Bane brings his fists down on the hood of the car, completely warping the hood and damaging the insides. That was almost you! The show of destruction drives his men further into their frenzy. Bane reaches down and grabs your hair. You can feel the strain in your roots. He bends over to look you in the eyes. "Tell me, Shyne. Do you see how foolish you've been all these years? Do you regret being a superheroine?" One of his goons moves closer to capture your expression and response. Shyne For a moment.. Shyne feels respite from the constant bashing... as her senses slowly return to her.. And then pain.. "Ayiiee!!" Her hair is pulled painfully and she winces, opening her eyes to see only Bane's own mask.. her expression quite fearful at this point. Panting, she shakes her head.. doing her best to try and look determined, but not succeeding. "...You... it's people like you.. that I am determined.. to stop.. nngh.." She reaches up to Bane's hand, in a pitiful attempt at getting him to let go.. RM Without a word, Bane takes your head and rams it into the side of the car door, knocking it off its hinges. He makes sure to angle your head so as not to damage your pretty face. Picking up the car door, he raises it overhead and brings it down sharply across your back. Shyne SLAM! "Nngahh!!! uhhh.." Shyne falls onto her stomach, pain ringing throughout her head... and then.. Another SLAM! This time, into her back. Madelyn's eyes open wide in terror as she feels immense pain in her back, her limps shooting upward at the force.. "AAYYYIIEEE!!' She screams in agony, her limbs spread out as they fall back to the ground.. she rolls onto her side and places both hands onto her back.. her initial instinct to channel some energy to alleviate some of the pain.. ...And then she remembers that her powers were gone.. oh, what a terrible day to not have them.. tears begin to fall from her face as she is forced to simply bear with it. Worse yet, she can finally feel fatigue setting in... RM Bane kneels down and wraps his arms around you, pinning your own arms to your sides. He scoops you up off of the ground, holding you helpless in his arms. You can hear him laugh again under his mask and the way he's clutching you now is almost playful. He walks over to one of the cameremen who points the camera at your face. Bane speaks. "Now then, what was that you were saying about heroism? I believe, you were telling everyone how pointless it was, yes? Do continue." Shyne Shyne heaves a breath as she feels herself being lifted up effortlessly.. she shakes and struggles in his grasp but knows it is in vain.. "No! Let.. go.. ghh.." Her toned and sexy legs dangle about as she is carried, and she soon sees a cameraman come and point his device in her face.. In defiance, she turns her head around, her hair swishing to cover a portion of her face. At least her hair was still on her side! Hearing his question, she shakes her head. "You're not going to get away with this... nngh.. put me down.. now!" She had to be brave.. no matter how much she hurt, and no matter how much she knew she didn't stand a chance.. she couldn't give up.. she couldn't let everyone down.. RM "Did you hear that everyone? We will not be getting away with this!" At their bosses jokes, the goons hoot and holler some more. You notice the cameraman scanning up and down your body, taking in your supple legs and that magnificent chest. Satisfied with your humiliation, Bane begins to squeeze your body. He draws his hands in under your breasts, compressing your midsection. Shyne Disgusted, Shyne attempts to kick out at the cameraman.. how dare he try and.. well, she conceded, her costume was quite revealing.. but still..! Suddenly, she feels Bane begin to change his hold on her, and soon she feels herself squeezed.. "No... no don't do thi.. acck..... aaahh...!" She kicks her legs out more, and her hands wave futilely as she does her best to brave the incoming pain.. already feeling the breath begin to be forced out of her.. RM The masked villain really starts to lean back, lifting you further off of the ground so that you're almost lying on his chest. He increases the pressure and you can see the veins in his arms bulging. Even with your limited invulnerability, you can feel your bones shifting and cracking as he crushes you. The cameraman who you almost kicked fell back in surprise, but now he's happy to be shooting you from his seated position, his lens perfectly positioned to capture your crotch and your legs weakly kicking. Bane squeezes again. "Scream for me." Shyne "Nngh.. nnh..!!" Shyne whines and gasps in pain as she feels her body finally start to give out.. and this makes her feel very scared.. and helpless.. As she is lifted further, she turns her head as she gives it one more go in trying to escape his grasp.. tensing her body up with what remained of her strength.. ..But it doesn't work. His grip is too powerful and she can feel her bones finally begin to bend and crack under this foe's sheer power. "Gah... ahhh....... uhhhh..!" She moans and whimpers.. but she would not scream. She didn't want to give him and his men the pleasure... By now, her entire body is covered with sweat, and her sexy costume is damp with it. How much longer would she be able to hold out? RM Bane is breathing heavily, but you’re not sure whether it's because he's tired or...if he's just enjoying this a lot. You can see disappointment in some of the men's eyes that you refuse to scream. They start to get angry and call for your blood. Bane leans forward for a second then explodes backwards with his hips, launching you over head in a German suplex. You land badly on your neck and shoulders, folding like an accordian before falling face down on the ground. Shyne Too much in pain to really be aware of Bane's condition, Shyne continues to do her best to resist screaming for the crowd.. As he leans forward, she begins to wonder... is he going to stop? The answer is soon painfully realized and Shyne screams out as she is flipped over.. "Ahhhh!!!" And them, WHAM.. slammed like a ragdoll.. Shyne groans and falls over, face-down.. By now, the pain she feels all over is beginning to do her in.. She whimpers softly as she tries to move, her body unresponsive.. Turning her head to the side, she closes her eyes as more tears form in the corners.. "Light.. forgive me.." RM "The rag." Bane motions to his troops who pass your tattered cape back over to him. He starts to rip it, taking a short strip and stringing it through his fingers. "Your last chance, Shyne. This can end right now. Tell everyone how embarrassed you are to be doing what you do. Tell them that this is the only possible end for them." You feel his boot on your back. "Go ahead." Shyne Hearing the monster speak, Shyne can only imagine what he intends.. And when he places a boot at her back, she gasps, moving an arm forward.. as if attempting to crawl away.. "Ah.." If she agreed to say what he wanted.. this could all end.. ..If she continued to resist.. She looked back at him, fear present in her beautiful purple eyes... Her crest was bent a little, having shifted with all of the roughhousing. ...She couldn't bring herself to answer.. she wanted to be brave.. she wanted it to end.. "I..." RM He stomps down on your back now and you can feel the tracks leaving an imprint on your flesh. Bane follows up by sitting down on your back. He must outweigh you by a few hundred pounds and now it's all pressing down on you against the unforgiving ground. You're between a rock and a hard place. "I can't hear yoooou." Shyne "GYAH!!" she screams out, her head falling forward... She squirms a little, attempting to curl up.. but Bane is quicker and sits on her back.. and the pain returns.. "Acckk!! Ah.. noo..." she whines, trying to move out from under him.. "P-please stop this.. I can't... I... aahh...." RM Bane reaches forward and clasps his hands underneath your chin and pulls back. Your skinny neck is bent backwards and your jaw is squeezed shut. His leather gloves rub coarsely against your cheeks. With his full weight on you, there isn't a lot of room to move and your back is forced to bend unnaturally. As he leans back and exerts himself to torture you, he croaks out "LAST...CHANCE..." Shyne She can feel his hands clasp under her chin.. she didn't watch much wrestling, but she knew enough to know what exactly this was.. "D-don't... nnghh!!!!!" As she is pulled back in his grip, she whines pathetically, waving her hands about.. clenching her fists at the point that she feels the most pain.. she feels as if her back is about to snap.. "Noo.. more.." she manages to get out between moans of pain.. "I..giive.....uuhh..." By now, she is in too much pain to do anything else other than scream.. and she is losing her voice quickly at that. RM Bane eases up. "Then you admit that heroism is only children and fools. Nod your head if you agree." Shyne "I.. wha....?" The last amount of resistance in her. RM He pulls back on the chinlock again, this time his hands are under your throat choking you. "Heroism! Is for children! And fools! Nod your head!" He eases up again, allowing you to nod if you choose. Shyne Shyne cries out again, hot tears spilling over from her cheeks onto Bane's fingers.. Having no will in her left, she begins to nod.. quickly at that. RM "Excellent!" Bane releases immediately, the jovial tone in his voice returning. He turns to address the cameras, almost ignoring you. He uses your torn cape to wipe the sweat off his body. "You see, breaking the will. That is the hard part. But breaking the body...that is much, much easier!" As he finishes saying this sentence, he reaches down and lifts you up with one hand on your shoulder blade and the other on your crotch. You are raised over his head, your arms and legs falling limply to the sides. Shyne Defeated, Shyne begins to crawl away.. thinking of how she can recover from this hum- And then she feels that beast place his hands on her again.. feeling his fingers slink over her crotch, her eyes open wide... "N-no.. what... nnhh.."... as she is raised into the air, her voice trails off.. her long black hair falling down. "No! Bane.. I said what you wanted! Please don't do this....nnnhgh.. h.. have mercy!" RM "Shyne, you played your role perfectly. I'm a man of my word. I assure you...this IS the end of it." From at least ten feet in the air, Bane thrusts you down with all of his might across his knee. It comes up perfectly right in the middle of your spine and parts of it are instantly shattered. The sound of it is nauseating and even some of his cronies make disgusted noises at the inhuman backbreaker. He pushes you off disgustedly before taking what's left of your cape and ripping it up into more strips. "Prepare the van." Shyne Shyne continues to plead... fearing that the infamous attack that nearly ended one hero's career was about to be repeated on her! "No! Nooo!!!" Like a meteor hurling to earth.. she feels her back land on the monster's knee.. her back shatters.. Her incredibly sexy belly is arched up and she lets out a most terrifying scream.. enough to make even the most seasoned criminal's blood curdle. It's as if seeing an angel getting their back broken. Hard to watch. As she is rolled off, she sprawls out.. defeated.. broken.. and still screaming, her voice straining as it starts to give out.. If she had known that she'd feel this kind of pain in this line of work, she would have kept her powers hidden.. for all time. ..... RM With your body twisted into a wretched configuration, you can barely sense Bane using the remains of your cape to truss you up. He ties your wrists together behind your back and uses what's left to place a makeshift gag around your mouth. He points towards a waiting van and the men rush to gather you up. They can't wait to get their hands on you. Bane himself takes one of the cameras and begins to narrate. "Gently, men, gently." he says sarcastically. The camera captures your ruined body being clumsily lifted up, the gang's mischievous hands touching you. They seem to take forever taking you back, repeatedly "losing their grip" only to have to reach out and feel you up again as you are transported. They hold you so that your knees are bent and your legs are spread out. Bane films every second of it. They finally get you to the van. Bane hands the camera to one of his henchmen and puts his hands on the doors. "This footage is going to go out to every major news outlet in the world. Congratulations. You've always "shined" like a star and now you will be one." "As for you, I promised my employers that they would get to play with the real thing. Do enjoy the trip." He finished by shutting the doors, leaving you in total darkness. Shyne Shyne finally stops her screaming, her voice too weak to continue... and she feels herself being picked up.. and tied.. Her eyes turn to Bane, eyes that were once so fiery and full of confidence.. now containing only fear and sadness. Soon, his men grab her and she begins to shiver as she feels their grimy hands all over her.. her breasts... her face.. her belly.. her legs.. and her crotch. Her only protest at this point is her weak whimpering, with her cracking voice. As they fumble with her and have their way, she begins to cry once again.. had she failed so utterly that the divine Sol had abandoned her during this time of greatest need? Bane addresses her, noting that footage would go to every major news company in the world. But by now, her spirit was so broken that all she could do was lower her head in shame. It wasn't until that Bane mentioned his employers.. shaking Shyne to realization..They... were going to...... Before the doors could shut on her, she made one last muffled scream before falling onto her back.. she wanted to die. She wanted it all to end. Soon, she felt the van moving.. surrounded in darkness, her future seemed quite bleak. She had never been defeated so soundly.. not like this... ...And just as despair was about to fully set in on the young heroine.. her eyes opened with a golden glow..
