Default Merged Subplot: Cooper Goes Back In/Platoon Leader Brock

Cooper finds himself on an aircraft carrier hardtop on a cloudless day.

Around him there are five large muscular Marine DI's in World War II era uniforms and "Smoky Bear" hats.

They are all screaming into his face and the only thing he can hear involves something called "burpees."

As he begins to get down, a sixth Marine DI appears with a firehose shooting ice cold water at skin damaging velocity directly into his face.

OOC: I'll admit, I have no idea where to go with this.

Cooper does burpees.

OOC: Cooper is eaten by a grue. Here is your chance for roleplaying. What would Cooper think? What would he do? How would he deal with this?

Cooper ran through a few burpees with the water tearing at his skin, blinding him. What the fuck was going on? It seemed like the computer had gone off the rails. Or were the instructors in control? On the last burpee his hands slipped on the wet deck and he fell to the steel plating.

Quote:
"WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU MAGGOT? THIS IS NOT NAP TIME! GET YOUR ASS UP AND BACK TO WORK!"
He struggled to his knees with the water still hammering on him. He had endured punishment before, but this was ridiculous. They were setting an impossible task, for what? To see his breaking point? Then here it was.

"FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE!"

Cooper surged to his feet and tackled the instructor in front of him.

((Roll of 9. Not sure what to add to that for an attack. If Cooper can take him to the deck, all good. If he can carry him off the edge of the carrier, also good.))

OOC: REF 7 + Brawling 4 + 9 = 20

Cooper knocked the instructor to the ground, knocking off his hat and struggling to sit on his chest, hitting him repeatedly.

The man's face turned to hamburger under his fists.

He did not fight back.

For what seemed like minutes, he pounded the instructor to death, forcing all of his rage into the action.

The other instructors waited.

When he was done, they surrounded him again.

The hose was gentler now, washing off the blood and viscera that stuck to him.

One of them spoke in a calm voice. "A hundred pushups, Recruit Cooper. Count em out."

He stood panting for a few seconds under the steady stream of water. He had come up expecting to fight for his life and instead...this. It occurred to him that this had probably been some sort of stress test. Hell, if he'd been good enough at college not wash out he might even know what was going on. Cooper blew water out of his face.

Quote:

He looked back at the instructor laying on the deck. Well, he'd always been raised to take responsibility for his actions, and he'd definitely done the crime...

"One Sir!

Two Sir!"

And on he counted.

Default Subplot: Platoon Leader Brock

Brock felt he had sat in the coffin patiently for long enough. "Yo, anybody out there?" He called as he banged on the lid

The instructors stood, still as statues at parade rest while he finished his pushups.

Between blinks, the one he had destroyed was replaced, he noticed.

When he reached 100, he was told to recover, and di, standing at attention.

The chief instructor stepped within inches of his nose and asked in a soft barely audible voice, "Cooper, are you prepared to unfuck yourself?"

Cooper finished out the pushups, arms burning. He stood to his feet and waited, noting the positions and postures of the drill instructors. The calmness, if anything, was a bit more unsettling the shouting. The shouting reminded him much of football tryouts and making the cut. The calm...he suppressed a shudder...finals week.

Quote:
"Cooper, are you prepared to unfuck yourself?"
He focused in on the instructor before him, meeting the gaze evenly. Use of first name...interesting. No maggot, recruit, shithead.

"Sir, yes sir."
