"I can fly and carry people" Tommy offered, he could become a crowned eagle which could carry four times it's own weight

"Sadly, Ulla, not everyone can be this amazing, but you're right. That boy needs a shot of attitude."

He looked to the others suggesting their own ways up, taking in a good view of Troy's backside as he climbed, then clapped his hands together. "Right, let's get up there, people! Animal Boy, take Remix up so she can keep everyone quiet on the way up. Troy, Monkey and Ulla will make their own way up. Mike, get those vines moving for the rest of us."

Tommy was annoyed at Season's increasing aggressive attempts at flirting but consented and transformed then and there and grabbed Faye and began flying her up

Troy was halfway up the rockface when he felt a twinge in the back of his head, turned and looked down. Giovanni was directly below him. Troy blinked...flushed red and then hurried his climbing.

The top of the cliff showed a rocky expanse near the cliff and beyond that a small field of grass between the cliff and the facility. Four dogs moved around though their spines were too pronounced, they had very little stomach and looked rather like racing dogs if racing dogs had a detachable three sectioned jaw and long skeletal tails.

There was a helipad on the upper floor with a helicopter on it, a set of doors near a long strip of windows looking in on the facilities cafeteria, a green house and then awalkway around the building to the front.

Well now. Autumn. Interesting indeed. She wiggled her fingers, so much more in tune with the sounds around her now. She could keep them out of prying ears for a bit. "Just remember, if you step to a point where suddenly you can't hear the rest of the team, you might want to back up a few paces."

Faye glanced at the eagle proposing to take her up before the talons clutched onto her as gently as talons could. "Flight AB for one..."

"Roger that, O' Fearless Leader," Aaron chuckled good-naturedly as he quickly removed his shoes before dropping into a low crouch, coiling his powerful leg muscles beneath him like a pair of springs. With a single push, he launched himself into the air a the rockface, fingers and toes carving divots into the cliffside upon impact. Like his namesake, he quickly began to scale the wall with the agility, speed, and natural climbing ability of a monkey.

As he made his way to the top, he took a moment to look over his shoulder at Tommy and Faye, grinning mischievously. "Up for a race, guys?" He was only kidding, but it did sound like a fun idea.

Vines began wrapping around the waists of Thomas, Giovanni and the others. Mike himself didn't wrap them around himself, waiting to get them up before he got himself. It was weird, the plant life here felt off... he couldn't put his finger on it everything was just vibrant. It must have been Giovanni's powers affecting him.

Thomas was dropped not so gracefully at the top of the cliff, landing square on his behind. He huffed in annoyance and moved his hair out of his eyes. Jumping to his feet before taking a visual.

Mike wrapped a vine around him, and launched himself up the cliff a lot faster than he did Thomas. He wasn't so worried about himself when it came to his plants but things were just potent, as if he was drugged.

Swift frowns.

"look at the grass. There are perfect circles of discoloration ahead, that's not natural. Too big to be mines though. Pop up turrets maybe?"

Season looked over to where Swift was pointing as soon as he was able to. Swift was right, they were most likely the pop-up turrets. He hadn't expected this kind of security already, but he was sure this group could handle it.

"Good spotting, Swift. You able to get them from here? We don't want them shooting at the bad guys, too much of a give-away; just make them not shoot us."

"Foxbane, just in case, make the plants grow over them so much they can't pop up," he looked around at the rest of the group. "Psycho, A.B., Ulla, start looking for cameras and those lasers and things. Remix, Monkey, get ready to silence everything as much as you can when I give the mark."

He glanced about again at the group. "On my mark Monkey, Troy, Swift and me all take out one of those dog things. Got it?"

"Got it, Season," Monkey nodded curtly as he made ready to move, activating his telepathy to be ready the moment he sprang into action. This would be easy. Mutated or not, these were still dogs, and they had a far more simply brain-structure to work with. They'd be silent in no time flat.

"I doubt I can get a wireless signal, they'll be hardwired. Assuming they are turrets I'd have to be in contact."

Swift stretches.

"Ready pound pooches sir."

Once Remix got her feet under her again on the cliff, she rolled her shoulders and nodded at their leader's orders. She closed her eyes and muted the surrounding area from prying ears. "Take 'em out guys, I got this." muting was easy, especially with that nice autumn boost.

The Grass and vines wrapped over the turret patches and latched down on them.

The dogs were waylaid in seconds. Troy grabbed one in a wrestling hold and with surprising efficiency drove its face into the soft soil before kicking it off the side of the cliff. He winced and looked disgusted.

Ulla took off, the cameras were all placed in trees and on the side sof buildings. Nothing special. Getting in wouldn't be too hard...theoretically, her misty form was hard to make out anyway.

The laser grid was inside the complex, netted around the greenhouse between it and the walls aroind it. A few guards patrolled the yard surrounded by a wall between the students and the facility. Several others were on the heliport and a heavy group patrolled the front, obviously expecting a frontal assault

(OOC: take out dem dogs as you please)

Wise Monkey let out a few short macaque-like shrieks to grab one of the dog's attention, leaping into action as the beast charged him. As he closed the gap between them, he suddenly dropped into a slide and knocked the creature's feet out from under it, sending the beast careening away into the grass. Before it could even get up, Monkey was on it in seconds, putting the dog in a powerful headlock that prevented it from getting up. With a free hand, Aaron depressed a nerve on the top of the animal's head, causing it to slowly lose consciousness.

"Easy boy, easy," he intoned softly as the mutated creature fell asleep in his arms before laying it gently on the grass. "You just rest that pretty little head of yours." Having taken down his opponent, he turned to rejoin the group. "All finished here, gang."

"Go!" Giovanni gave the signal as Faye announced she was ready and Mike gave the nod that the turrets were dealt with.

He watched a moment as the others sprang into action, then bolted past them to the dog at the back of the group. It saw him coming and leapt at him, jaws wide. Grabbing its throat, Giovanni held the dog at arms length for a moment before deciding that Troy had a pretty good idea in tossing them off the cliff; they certainly wouldn't be coming back from that.

With a casual toss, Giovanni sent his captured mutant over the cliff as well.

Looking up to where Ulla was directing their attention to the cameras, Season once again motioned to Mike.

"Get Swift up into the trees near that camera so he can get into their network. The less time they have to react to us, the better."

"Everyone else, stealth time. Ulla and Animal Boy are gonna be our guides to make sure we don't trip anything."
