where you think you're going

Here is a demon. The demon is in his swimming pool.

He doesn't swim naked, so he takes the summon anyway.

with Suranse triplets (kappa)

with XCOM randos (Rockeye)

It's cold and snowing here.

His summoner is one of these raggedly dressed people apparently responsible for the scrawled graffiti about alien invasions on no less than three surfaces, including a dirty alley floor. The centerpiece of a bleeding Earth with scribbles around it is where he appeared.

There's an obvious smell of... Some kind of hard drug. One shouts, "Shit! Iz' a fuckin' Archon or something! Run!" They scatter.

This: Is a slum. No other word for such filthy and run down buildings. The combination of French and English in the graffiti, and the cold, suggests Canada.


There is an explosion a block or two away, shortly followed by gunfire and screaming/shouting in English and an unfamiliar language.

There are two small teams of armored humans having a gunfight over an armored car, though one side looks a lot more professional and well-made, using some kind of energy weapons instead of the regular old firearms the other side is equipped with. The professional-looking side has at least one decidedly nonhuman soldier.

The side using non-energy weapons is actually doing fairly well, despite being outnumbered. They seem to have caught the others by surprise. The snake thing spits green gas, which is apparently poison going by the coughing and swearing. Then it dies.

The guerrilla fighters start trying to pry open the back door of the armored car, until two more snake things and two regular-ish soldiers start shooting from the opposite roof. Two of the five aggressors are now dead or dying. "Forget rescuing the prisoner, we have to get out of here! Call the Skyranger for evac!" Someone picks up one of their downed comrades and they perform a fighting retreat.

There is an aircraft approaching rapidly, presumably the Skyranger.

Oh, and someone on the energy-weapons side has spotted Cam and starts shooting at him.

The aircraft picks up the retreating fighters and flies off. The energy-weapons team yells at each other in their unfamiliar language, then one shouts, "Resistance fighter, surrender immediately!"

Nope. One of the retreating team got left behind. She drops her weapon and comes out with her hands up. They handcuff her and inject her with something that makes her slump over. Into the armored car she goes.

"Unknown person with wings! You seem to be allied with the insurgents, I must ask you to submit to questioning."

"They are rebel insurgents known as XCOM. Violent criminals who bite at the helping hand of the Elders, destroying or stealing valuable technology, interfering with computer systems, kidnapping and killing innocent researchers, spreading misleading propaganda. If you are not one of them, I want to ask you to describe them as best you can. It might help us finally track down that damn stolen ship."

"Witnesses to suspicious events are to be detained to ensure safety and security for all. There are few exceptions." Team Energy Weapons have finished gathering up the dead. The guy yelling at Cam doesn't even look at them.

...He asks for orders into his radio.

Orders are apparently: Shoot at Cam.

Fire, fire, fire, fire. Reload. Fire, fire, fire...

More reinforcements show up. This one looks like a stereotypical gray alien. It emits some kind of purple energy at Cam... Which makes him, briefly, slightly, disoriented and afraid.

When the gray alien's thing didn't work, they stopped shooting, blasted apart its box, and started fleeing at top speed.

Indeed.


One of the cowering civilians is looking between Cam and the fleeing alien troops with something between disbelief and awe.
