Challenge NameNFA: Infection
Challenge TypePersonal Challenge
Category Multiple Crossings
DescriptionThe slavering demon army appeared to number in the thousands. They didn't.

The dragon was real.

Most of the ground troops were illusion. Only [number] of them were real.

The problem was that they were infectious.

--Challenge: Use the above lines in a fic dealing with Angel's stand in NFA. Then explain/show what the infection(s) is/are and why this is a bad thing.

You can use this as an opportunity to save the gang or wipe them out completely.

Brainwashing and species changing would be a plus.

Feel free to vary the line-up present at the last stand, more/different survivors... Especially if the change in roster makes them a lot more vulnerable :)

Why would W&H bring fewer but infectious troops? Probably for budget reasons... Time constraints... Fading power, etc.

Why would W&H make the illusion army? Maybe so Angel and the gang will chop the 'first wave' to bits/allow them to get close rather than running away from (or observing closely) the suspiciously low number of attackers ;)

Gruesomeness/Dark comedy appreciated. Maybe they appear to come out of battle unscathed, only to succumb after spreading something around a bit.

Heck, maybe even a 28 Days Later crossover ;)

And it doesn't have to be the gang that becomes infected, maybe their clothes and weapons absorb infectious energy and become evil and mobile and self-aware... Heh :)

Please surprise me and the other people who'll check it out :D

What if W&H's army concealed a trap for the blue-haired goddess? Dark. (Not Fade Away:Infection)
