*Roy and Hades, after the last challenge*
Roy looks out at the audience and gives Team Arrow a salute. He then spins and runs to greet Lord Hades. There's a spring in his step and a smile on his face, but he's trying hard not to gloat. "Lord Hades, you ran a hard game," He says, extending his hand.

::Slowly, behind him, Donna reaches for the scroll Hawkman left in her care and prepares to open it.::

Starfire remains in the air, hovering over her teammates.

"Indeed, you did," Hades says, extending his hand.

When Roy grasps it, he suddenly feels weak, numb...as if he took a hit of heroin...

The touch of death.

"What?" Roy mutters, feeling weak.

Hades smiles at Lilith gently. "I swear it on Styx. Once within Death's gates, they shall know no further pain..."

Standing, he makes a sweeping gesture. "The Titans have won honorably, and have earned this reunion. Once again, they shall all be reunited. Titans Together?"

He straightens his tunic. "And to bring about their joyous reunion, I provide the fastest methods possible."

He raises his hand. "Armies of the Dead. Attack."

Starfire does not wait for Donna's command before she begins firing at Hades with both hands.

"No!" Lilith is -- horrified doesn't even begin to cover this. "Stop! Stop it! This isn't right!"

"ENOUGH!" Hal bellows, rocketing towards Hades from the stands.

"I have seen enough, Hades. I have seen you cheat time and again, and these heroes succeeded despite it all."

He cuts through the armies of the dead like a light through shadow to hover in front of Hades. "You may be a god, Hades, but I was once the wrath of the God Himself. Do you dare risk that I have forgotten all your sins, which were once laid bare for me to see? You have lost. Return Troia and Nightwing to us, and call off your armies, before you face punishment that would make even the Furies cry."

"Wrath of God? when this is over, I shall be king of ALL Gods!"

He rips open a rend in the earth, exposing fire and the egg-smelling brimstone. Levitating a hefty chunk of the yellow ore, he pitches it towards Hal.

"All three of us Lord Hades! Nightwing, Arsenal, and myself. Or, by hand, you will lose your kingdom and I shall drag them back to Helios's light myself!"

Skeletons in rusted armor, and tattered uniform, dead from every war Man has fought, come charging through the breech, crashing towards the stands, threatening to overwhelm hero, spectator, and onlooker alike.

There is screaming, panic, pandemonium as the swords start to slice, as hand-to-hand combats start breaking out among the stands. The hordes vasly outnumber them.

"X'hal!" Starfire swears.
jakeem_thunder From: jakeem_thunder Date: August 24th, 2005 03:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Geez. Any time there's pandemonium, who is the first to get trampled on? That's right. No one ever notices the short kid.

Of course, given that this particular pandemonium involves horders of skeletal warriors? Maybe it's a good thing.

"Thunderbolt!" Jakeem orders, directing the genie to help the civilian-spectators in the stands. "Get those people out of here!"

The Flash wastes no time springing into action, knowing his best move is to try to keep as many of these hordes off balance and battered about as possible. He zooms through the advancing battallions, smacking as many of them as he can very low, trying to break their knees to keep them from walking, disabling several at a time.

Green Shield - no longer Tara - stands in her seat and takes point. She fires the broadtip arrows as recommended what seems like a lifetime ago.

"Go Ghostbusters!" She shouts to the other arrows.
connor_hawke From: connor_hawke Date: August 24th, 2005 06:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Keep the hordes distracted. I hope this will work!"

In that instant, the white arrow has sailed from his bow.

::Okay, Connor's not going get this...But it will make Mia's day.::

"Get 'em Ray!"

There is panic as the onlookers - the ordinary civilians who came out of curiosity - attempt to scatter out of the way.

Yet, one of them holds her ground. She is past fear, past sorrow, past sickness. Seeing one Titan fall in death shook her to the core. Seeing another die from treachery was far too much. Now with the spectral monsters charging towards people who cannot fight back?

It is past what Aurora Andersen can take. As it had in some unknown hell of a labratory, her mind snaps. While the humans scatter, she leaps forward, hands growing claws, her body growing a thick hide and coarse fur. Her teeth have become an impressive set of fangs. Her clothing falls to the ground.

With a mighty swipe, she sends one skeleton's skull rolling. Another swipe demolishes the ribcage of another. Blow upon blow lands upon her, and it does not register. all that matters is standing between the skeletons and the fleeing crowd.

After reading the scroll she rushes to Arsenal's side. She tries and fails to get a pulse.

Another glance over to Nightwing.

She's died for them before. Now she's going to live for them and send as many of these things as it takes back to the stones and dust that they came from. she quickly gathers the bodies of the two people she loves the most in this world and plants herself on thier defense. When she drags thier souls back somehow, thier bodies will not be molested.

Tempest steps back to join Donna, the magical attacks from the Trident continuing to blast out at Hades without pause. In a voice loud enough to be heard by all he shouts, "Titans Together! No one retreats! No one surrenders! Remember those we love and ATTACK!"

Plastic Man springs into action himself, launching from the stands and expanding to a huge size to start pounding at the invading armies, slapping them all around, knocking them apart.

"You all just made me an atheist!"
jla_extras From: jla_extras Date: August 24th, 2005 04:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Shut up, fool." He throws another gesture Plastic Man's direction, and Plastic man feels himself stiffen and slow.

"Enjoy another few centuries as stone."

Here might be where Jesse arrives, guarded by Tempest's shield, fist ready.

"Hey, HEY!" Plaz barks in annoyance, as his Rock'em Sock'em form starts to completely freeze up, planting him in place as a statue...

"Hardening me up? Somebody's... nnng... over...compen..sating...!"

Donna finishes reading the scroll - warning someone else his return to the mortal world has begun. Calling to those he's gathered, and using Hade's own presence, and in fact, his summons, to lead the Legions of the Dead right into the arena - except this is a little different Legion.

The recently deceased Carter Hall.
Hippolyta
Charles McNider
Wesley Dodds
Kent and Inza Nelson
Al Pratt
Terry Sloane
Sgt. Rock and Easy Company
The Haunted Tank
Jonah Hex

There's others - less identifiable on first sight. Dead parents, siblings, lovers, spouses, companions - people of conviction and character who have succumbed to death - but apparently are still more than willing to come to the aid of those they left behind.

Carter raises the Claw of Horus high, the power that can, and has defied gods sweeping over the field, messing with the very natural laws of the planet to contradict godly magic and level the playing field, gesturing his troops forward with his mace. Nth metal has claimed its share of gods and elder beings, and he shows no fear of those gathered here.

He has only so much time before he returns to life. Time to make the best of it.
