[There's no introduction, no time wasted on pleasantries.] This is Armstrong. There's been a gas attack at the University grounds in De Chima that's causing hallucinations, some kind of mass hysteria. I have gas masks and tranquilizer rifles located at the West entrance to keep the peace.

I need a goddamn situation report and I need it ten minutes ago.

[Those who want to get a resupply from Olivier can find her exactly where she said she'll be .]

You had gas masks and tranquilizer rifles on site?

[ His voice to text doesn't do italics, but the disbelief is there. Is this default Olivier, or is this something RISE is up to? Some secret, militarized effort?

Not that he isn't grateful that she does, and he'll have more time to worry about his paranoia later, but that is god. damn. suspicious.

[ He cooperates by switching to audio, patching the feed into the internal broadcasting system of his cowl. He still finds it suspicious, but as she points out, now isn't the time. Besides, he has to find Crane and stop him. Before Armstrong does. Before RISE does. Fear grips him, despite the antidote he's taken: He can't get away with this. He has to pay, my way.

And those people. Those screaming people... He has to help them.

I had a truck parked nearby too. [ But his guess that this would happen is, if anything, just as suspicious as hers. At almost that exact moment - because Bat-timing - the Batwing would pass over the coordinates Olivier provided, engines crooning. ] I can limit its spread in the northwest corner, toward the densest pocket of campus population. I suggest you focus your efforts elsewhere.

[ And here it is. The question--the inevitable question, that he isn't particularly equipped to deal with now: If he knew Crane was dangerous, why didn't he stop this?

But he has solid, evasive answers to fit, for the moment.

I've encountered this type of gas before, in my own world; my own city. My plane is equipped to condense some of it back into its liquid form, but I didn't anticipate an attack on this scale.

In high concentrations, it could kill. You should keep an eye on anyone you identify as having been closer to the explosions.

A biopharmaceutical company in Gotham developed a cure, but it's only partially effective on this strain. [ Blatant code for 'had some on hand' and 'personally tested it on myself'. ] Altered this way, I can't be certain that any cure is viable.

Interaction with the liquid form shouldn't be ruled out. There may be unexploded--

[ There's a pause, as his maneuvers take more of his attention, and then he continues as though uninterrupted. ]

--devices on site, which should be contained and cordoned off. If they exist, they will be booby trapped.

No, it's not a diversion.

[ Wow that is his only answer to that question. Crane doesn't divert. He wants everyone to see. He wants to see for himself. The chaos is his drug.

But when it comes to Olivier, to RISE, she can clear up his messes but Crane is from Gotham. Crane is his responsibility, Crane is unhinged, and Bruce will be damned if he sees him lynch mobbed by laws cherrypicked to suit him. That's not how justice works.

Because when you perform an experiment, you do it because you want to witness the results.

[ He's said too much already. ]

I'm dealing with them myself. We discussed my feelings before, and I don't know about you, but I'm a little too busy to fight with you about it now. People are dying.

[OOC: yup! The ooc note was more in case the link over from the other page didn't make it clear for people reading. ]

I've never needed authority to defend my city, and bring people like this to justice. You-- [ A derisive noise. ] I don't trust you. I didn't vote for you or RISE as soul arbitrator of what is right and wrong, and while the government may naively back you, I do not.

RISE only succeeds if the community allows it to, but you act as though your position is without question. You thrive on the power, and I will never support your organization so long as you remain at its wheel.

In short: I don't answer to you, don't ever condescend to give me orders again.

You're so damn full of yourself. You have a city to save--and the rest of us are what, exactly? I didn't put you in charge, you assumed it, but RISE won't be the only group acting in the best interests of this city - my city - and it's people.

Stuff your orders, Armstrong.
