Alyx hears a sound coming from in the walls. It sounded like D0g that lurks nearby. "I should probably get a move on." Alyx smiles until she hears a dragon roar muffled inside. It was only a few rooms away from them when they heard slight clashing on the floor. "Dog?" Alyx says as she comes in and races toward where the sounds are coming from.

 

D0g appeared to be wrestling Toothful in an employee lounge of the sector of the facility. Toothful fires a golden blast, but misses D0g and causing it to blow up on the walls. D0g pins down the day fury, but he fired at D0g with another shot and hits it in the arm, forcing D0g to release Toothful and the fight continues on.

Craig follows Alyx soon afterwards. He runs in to see the robot fighting with the Day Fury. "H—hold up!" Craig shouted to try to pause them. "Stop!"

​The fight continues on. D0g snatches Toothful by the scruff and throws him to the floor. Toothfull shrieks in pain, but quickly gets up with a limp and takes flight on top of a bookshelf. Toothful jumps down and the shelf falls toward D0g. D0g dashed out of the way the the shelf crashed on the floor and the books scatter eyerywhere.

 

"Come on Dog," Alyx encourages, taking on D0g's side but tempted to help.

Craig's pupils narrowed when the bookshelf fell. He blinked turned his head toward Alyx. "I-n-no. That's Toothful!" Craig shouted over the noise in the room. His purple pupils her narrowed to pinprick and his eyelid plates were not visible. He looks back at the fight between D0g and Toothful and shifted into a Puma. "Stop! STOP! STOP!" He jumped into the fight, trying to break up the fight between D0g and Toothful.

D0g and Toothful

​Craig jumps into the middle of the fight between the dragon and the robot. D0g halted, however Toothful wasn't intimidated. He jumps behind Craig and tail swipes him with a good hard force. Toothful launched himself forwad onto D0g.

Craig unexpectedly gets swiped by Toothful into the wall of the room. He went disoriented and mispositioned in between the wall and a hard place.

"Craig!" Shouted Alyx while D0g throws Tootful into the wall. Toothful fell disoriented as the robot charges. Toothful tries firing a few more golden blasts but it didn't slow D0g down. Toothful utters a whine and dodges D0g's punches with his slightly limping injured body.

D0g tried a different approach: going where he believes Toothful is going into the room and catches him. Toothful snarls and snaps like an angry wolf, but his teeth cannot damage D0g's arm. Toothful opened his mouth and figured out that he is out of shots.

Craig sat there dazed and he struggled to gain focus. He noticed that D0g has grabbed the injured dragon. Craig had enough. He knows not everyone can get along, but he must stop the fight before someone is seriously hurt, regardless that he could be too late. But he doesn't want someone killed. He shifted into a horse and rams the arm holding Toothful; damaging his head on the impact.

 

((Craig is a horse, not a goat. But to him it's worth an attempt even though it hurts... Alot))

D0g and Toothful

Craig hits the elbow of D0g's arm and it forces him to let go. Toothful utters a small shriek of him getting squished by D0g's powerful grip and struggled to stay standing. D0g looks at Craig with another pause, but Toothful's growls continued.

~Airchopper and Craig~

"Believe me when I say this," Airchopper notifies, "She's more cuter then she was a couple of days ago. Still though, I'll have to debeak her." There was roaring heard in the distance, and a clash. Airchopper looks with his eyes slit and stares out the door , even though it's happening a corridor away. He stares for a moment by the sounds of a riot. Some of the Combine soldiers rushed to the scene. "Yup, it's about time." He said, breaking his face from alert, to annoyance.

 

 

 

Craig shifted into a wolf, hopefully he's not hurt enough to forcefully shift back into a core. Craig had his four legs spread out and looking around at both D0g and Toothful so that they will not make a move. He snarls and glares at them both with his pupils twitching from smaller to slightly larger, mostly because of his major migraine.
Apparently, he refused to have his weapon drawn, it could be because he already made himself intimidating enough. Craig walks, stays in front of them to separate the two aggressors.

D0g and Toothful

Toothful gave a deadly gaze at D0g, and then Craig; still out of shots, but muscles are aching, even his sharp powerful teeth are hurting so bad that he couldn't make a move. D0g just watches Toothful. Neither anyone can tell if it is a glare, nor a face of mercy. D0g looked back at Craig who seemed aggressive, but noticed his damaged head. All he did was move to the side toward the wall near Alyx, not making his attack to Toothful.

Craig weakens his look. Craig first looks down for a second to try to ease the pain, but it didn't work. He looked at Toothful to see if he makes his attack.

Toothful

Toothful was weakened. He made a small whine and walked slowly a few steps forward. His slit orange eyes narrow to round before he lays on the floor in the heap of defeat.

Craig looks down again and back at D0g. His glaring eyes turned into just pain and gloom then looked at Alyx for a moment. Then he looks forward and moved his legs drifting forward. He shifted back into a core and the devise that holds him doesn't activate so he falls to the floor dazed.

Alyx and Virgil
"Craig?" Alyx went over on him to check on him. It is about time she understood that he is protecting D0g and Toothful, but she came over in concern.
 
Virgil then flies in the lounge. "I hear fighting from all the way up there!" Virgil squeaked. His eyes go slit while he perks up with a small gasp. He noticed Craig didn't look all that fine, but he also find Toothful in a room full of strangers.
 
"Who are these intruders!?" Virgil jumped up and lands in position on his four feet. His wings are half spread and his nose and mouth has a pinch of an orange glow on his snarl.

Alyx and Virgil

Virgil was slightly unconvinced. Alyx looked at him and at first she was alert that there was a talking dragon. Taking in the odd feeling, Alyx has to answer the little frightened dragon. "I'm sorry fella, I didn't start this."

"Little fella?" Virgil rebukes. "Little fella!? This little fella can burn you in a crisp if you don't tell me what is going on here!"

"Alright." Mutters Alyx. "D0g and the dragon got into a fight. Craig broke it up."

"I'm fine." Murmured the Fact Core. The hoverpad activates ((Yah, that's what it's called. I don't feel like calling it the little floaty devise underneath him that allows him to fly anymore and the name of the hoverpad is not going to be mentioned anytime soon)) underneath him with a jolt. "Just bring Toothful to care. I'll break the news to Hiccup later."

Alyx and D0g

D0g walks forward and around Toothful. Now that he knows that Toothful is an ally, he felt guilty for roughing up a fight. However, he was intimidated by Toothful's snarls when he saw him. Toothful opened his eyes slightly and breaths lightly. He knows D0g is there, but hasn't been alert. Still, Toothful doesn't want D0g to be around him.

D0g gently pet's Toothful's back. Toothful made a groan: just a weak growl indecating that he doesn't want D0g to touch him, especially after he lost a fight against him. D0g puts his hand down and goes to the door of the lounge.

Meanwhile, Alyx answers to Craig, "I'll be on it."

"Why should I do it?" Protested Virgil. "Why don't you cover his visual and he'll think you're carrying him? Touching his eyes are worse then touching his body, ICK!" Virgil lands on the floor and points a claw at Toothful. "That dirt bag spat on me earlier!"

​Virgil raises his tail to sit down on the floor. He crosses his forearms, turning a side to Craig with a smug look. "Good." Virgil says with a little emphasis. "Glad we got that settled." Keeping the look, his eyes turn to D0g who used both arms to pick Toothful up. Toothful's eyes go slit and he struggles a little, but it quickly dies.

 

"Relax," Virgil says to Toothful. The day fury groaned in the feeling of nervousness that D0g would do something to him. It wasn't a very soothing ride either, since D0g's walking is more of a waddle with the shorter legs then his big arms; swinging Toothful to the left and to the right in a swaying motion every step D0g makes outside the lounge.

 

"I should come with them." Offered Alyx, pointing with a low hand gesture out the door with her other arm tied around her waist. "I should make sure they don't do something together, regardless they just fought." Alyx took two steps forward, but then stopped herself. She turned back to Craig and asks him, "Are you sure your alright? Nothing broken?"

"Don't worry, I'll be alright." Craig responds. Coincidentally, there was a tiny spark coming in from the top. "I am 86% aright. I'll have Dr. Kleiner look at me again."

Virgil flies and lands on Craig. His two forearms holds on to the top handles and his back claws cling on the edge of Craig's holes on the side of his sphere. "You can rely on us Fact Core. I'll see what is going on in you." Virgil said with a smile. Virgil flaps his spread out wings, attempting to take him out of the room.

Nothing hurt that much beside the aching ((?)), but it accumulated when Virgil lands on him. His hoverpad goes down by the weight before he starts flying to carry him out of the room. "Fact: You're already creeping me out-ou-o-o-— Please don't." Craig was unaware of the glitch in his voice. It could be done by damage. "You're NOT the Maintenance Core."

​Virgil sets him down in the next room. "No, I am not. But, I said before I know a little bit about this stuff." Virgil hooks Craig up to a computer. "Oh hopefully these are up to date. I know nothing about this facility or yours, but what I do know is that these computers are antique and may not be able to adapt to your systems."

When Virgil hooks Craig up, he suddenly got a new signal. It was weird even for him by suddenly receiving new data saying to authorize a new access to unclassified equipment. It's not Aperture nor Black Mesa, but it's in Aperture. "What does this have to do with fi-fi-fixing my damage?"

Virgil hooked him up. "Only a simple troubleshoot. I never tried this before, but maybe it's troubleshooting first, then repairing." Virgil holds out his paw to the keyboard and stopped to notice how dusty it is. "Ick." Virgil groaned. "There is no way I am touching that with my bare claws. Virgil flies to the other end of the room, and he comes back with a Kleenex and rips it in half: one for each forearm.

 

Virgil gets down in his back and used his shins and mouth to tie them on his feet. Virgil stretches his wings to get up from his back swinging him upward. "Aw, better," Virgil muttered. Then he got to type an encrypted code. "Once I get through these computers, I can check your systems. I already decrypted the chip on the motherboard. It should go through easily." In the middle of doing his thing on the monitor behind Craig, Virgil mutters a few words to himself saying, "Gee these computers really are different then what the Combine uses. I'm not actually sure how to use this."

​Virgil tries a tactic to gain access to the computer and the core's systems. A window appears on the screen that displays what Craig sees and a terminal to the side of the window containing scripted data. "Erika! It worked." Virgil shouted joyfully then blushes. "That... was pretty lucky of me—these computers. I'm surprised they can handle such advanced systems."

Virgil scrolls down the terminal and noticed the dating. "Actually," Virgil sighs in another thought. "These systems are outdated."

"Hold on a second." Virgil says, scringing to read the data. "This looks weird. I'm getting some foreign signals, and it's not letting me audit. It doesn't look Combine, it looks somewhat... advanced."

​"I have response to this one." Virgil says and he clicks. The blue XP window pops up, revealing several different areas marked in a camera. It had access to another facility as he was searching into Craig's systems. "Oh, you have the ability to monitor a whole facility?"

"Well I'm seeing things in your systems that is quite different. It has strict encrypted coding, but it looks like it belongs to nobody. I'm using your systems to gain access." Stated Virgil. He reads the system's coding.

​Virgil shakes his head and closes the windows screen with the cameras. Virgil says with a sigh, "I will continue to to troubleshoot the system. I will search the firewalls later to get rid of the virus."

​"I'll try." Uttered Virgil. He activates the troubleshoot from the pop-up and clicked run diagnostics. There was a white window that appeared next and it displayes a loading screen inside with a slowly progressing bar. It takes a minute to get one-sixteenth of the way there. Virgil has lost paitence pretty quickly. He bangs the desk hard enough to knock the kleenex off of his foot. "Come on!" He shouted after another minute.

Virgil heard Craig, but he just stares down in grump with his arms crossed. He puffs out a light grey stream of smoke from his nostrils and twitched the scar on his lip. His low glaring eyes narrowed with a groan and uses the other foot that is still protected by a kleenex. The mouse wasn't dirty, but he would still not rather touch it in case it's completely infested with germs.

 

Virgil drags the mouse to the bottom of the screen and the blue taskbar opens up. He clicks the start and reads the lable. "Is Windows XP a system?" Virgil asked impaitently. The troubleshoot was still loading.

"Then why don't you clean your bathtub. I can add that in your to-do list." Craig asked sarcastically. "It will only take you 59,976.7853 seconds. Just enough time for this junk to finish the filth cleansing." Craig pauses for a second, then something occurred in his mind.
