    Aliens: Homecoming

    Post by Chojin on Sat Jan 14, 2012 9:14 pm

    What if the events of Aliens never took place? What if the Nostromo wasn’t destroyed? What if Ripley never even made it off the ship?

    2124: Earth.
    The Nostromo finally makes her way back to Earth on autopilot and is picked up by one of Weyland-Yutani’s Earth based facilities somewhere on the Solomon Island of Guadalcanal, near the town of Nduindui. The company had long awaited Nostromos return. Wasting no time, they retrieved the vessel and brought her to the facility at Chaliaru. Once she was safely nestled in one of the subterranean hangars, a routine check of the interior was started, rousing the inhabitants that had made her innards their home. The whole ordeal was over as quickly as it began as the company was not aware of the infestation they had released. At first it started with a dozen drones, but soon escalated to hundreds as the creatures in their reproductive form claimed more and more victims. Within days, the entire facility was completely lost as the last few inhabitants were cut off from escape and eventually set upon. Untold numbers now lay within the facility, and hundreds more still wander the island, ever closing on the inhabited coastal towns that served as tourist resorts, with some already suffering loses. All transport from the island is cut off, under the pretense of a severe weather warning, as the company comes to understand the horrors they’ve unleashed.

    After trudging for what must've been hours through alpine terrain, Josh Hauser broke from the treeline uphill from the coastal town of Ndui Ndui. He knew he couldn't go any further in that direction, so his squad would be further inland. He could turn around and go back the way he came, but that would mean facing the horrors he left behind. He couldn't face them alone with his limited supplies, he needed something to give hiim an edge

    In a hotel room not far from one of the main coastal areas, Ashley sits on the end of her bed, flicking through the tv channels. Most of them don't even seem to be connecting, and her attention is drawn away when there's a knock at the door.

    "It's open." She calls, before tossing the remote on the bed.

    Two other girls walk in, both dark haired, one with very short hair, and the other with long hair tied in a pony-tail.

    "Ready to go?" The short haired girl, Danielle asks.

    "Yeah. What's the plan? Did you get one of these too?" Ashley asks, holding up a piece of paper with the heading "IMPORTANT: Severe Weather Warning".

    "Yeah". Danielle replies. "It's no biggy. Probably an over-reaction so they don't get sued over some stupid tourist getting caught unawares."

    Ashley giggles as she slings a bag over her shoulder and follows the other two out the door.

    "Steph and Connie are gonna meet us there." The long haired girl, Jen mentions as they head to the stair-well.

    The girls had decided to head to the beach and enjoy the good weather while it lasted.

    Still some distance away from Ndui Ndui, Josh had to make up his mind. The nightmare that had seperated him from his squad wouldn't be far behind. He didn't think for a minute he wasn't followed, not after what happened to Wedge. Poor Wedge didn't even see it coming. One minute he was laughing with the group, and the next- Josh shook it from his head with a shiver. He hefted his Pulse Rifle and made haste towards Ndui Ndui; maybe he'd get lucky with supplies or a way to contact his squad.

    Ashley walked with her friends towards the beach. The sky had started to cloud over, which worried them a little. Maybe the weather really was turning bad.

    "I'm sure it's nothing to worry about." Danni said calmly. "If things start to get bad; we'll head back. It's not like we've got far to go."

    Ashley stopped just outside a small shop. "I'm gonna grab some drinks. You guys go on ahead and I'll catch up."

    Josh had broke into a sprint, made clumsy by his gear. He quickly approached what he thought was a hill, but skidded sharply to a halt when he noticed the sudden drop, almost tumbling over the edge.
    "Really!?" He asked no one in particular. He looked around, but could see no immediate way down. Towards the center of the island, the ridge curved back the way he had come; not what he had in mind. In the other direction, the ridge sloped down towards the coast. He turned to make his way towards the coast when he heard a noise from behind him. Instinctively, he brought his Pulse Rifle to bear in the general direction the noise had come from. He stood rooted to the spot with the feeling of unseen eyes watching him.

    Ash took her time in the shop, trying to pick a few different drinks and snacks so that she'd have something for everyone.

    And, being a sea-side shop, it was full of little trinkets and souvenirs. Ash had a weak-spot for that sort of thing, and once it caught her eye, she was forced to browse.

    After a few moments, Josh saw what was watching him, it wasn't the nightmare he had imagined but a creature that look remarkably like a deer, and breathed a sigh of relief and relaxed as he turned away. He made his way towards the coast. Before he got more than 10 foot from his previous position, he heard the terrifying scream of the nightmarish creature that had been pursuing him, mixed with a dying cry from the deer. Josh froze for a split second and spun on his heels, bringing his Pulse Rifle up, once again. The nightmare looked up at him from it's kill and let out a piercing squeal. Josh squeezed the trigger and watched with great satisfaction as the ballistics shredded the creatures face, spraying it's green acidic blood behind it. As quickly as it had began, the ordeal was over. Josh didn't want to wait around, he knew that would not be the only one following him. He quickly turned and sprinted as fast as he could, keeping his rifle drawn in case it was needed at a moments notice; he could just make out people on the beach, now.
