God Complex: Out of Time
OOC: They'd be back alive now as would everyone who ended up dead before. Though, Khnurm would've actually been the only one to permanently die anyway given the nature of Godbounds anyway.
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>The power from the gate would pulse once more before time seemed to freeze in place. All present would however notice that they were still fully aware of what was happening around them. Enough so for them even to witness as events began to undo themselves. Their journeys to this point would be played back in reverse piece by piece with all of their actions to this point being completely undone and yet they would still bare witness to the entire process. Finally they'd find themselves leaving this strange place back through the way they came. Time once more would be resumed with them standing in the place where their respective portal originally was. The difference being that they would be able to remember ever detail that had transpired. There'd be another odd thing of note, a small crack in place of each portal. It wasn't very easy to notice nor did it seem to be possible to touch it or interact with it. Marcus would lead Red to an alley across from where they'd just been. There they'd find a small glimmer of light that seemed to be coming from a crack in mid-air. The light would obviously feel similar to the night road they had encountered before but this time it seemed to be sealed within. Marcus would hesitate in front of the crack. He Almost seemed to be intent on trying to open it himself with the strange ring from before but something seemed to stop him.</i> Marcus: &quot;Yeah...Not doing that yet. Think you can use yours to open this one. I'll be sure to close it after.&quot; <i>If she hadn't noticed by now Red would already have gained a natural sense of how to use the ring just from having put it on. The energy within the ring seemed to natural resonate with the crack making it easy to open as picking a loose lock.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>The old man would stand in the middle of the room and look at Marcus. In the light of what seemed like his lab the green spots on his body were clearer. They almost seeming like the fiber of a plant with how glossy they were as well.</i> Marcus: &quot;Right, so, here's the deal. I'll let you study the thing again for a while but in exchange I'd also like one of those prototype version of what I asked for before.&quot; <i>The old man seemed to have a certain hunger in his eyes as he nodded. He didn't even seem intend on refusing Marcus' offer.</i> ???: &quot;No clue why you also want a prototype but if I can see it again then I have no reason to refuse...&quot; <i>The old man would walk over to a seemingly random drawer and pull out a heavy ring made from a dark colored metal along with a ring of a lighter color that also seemed to weigh less. He'd hand them both to Marcus before seeming to wait for something in return. Marcus would hesitate with the dark ring before simply putting it away. He almost looked nervous about it before he'd turn and hand Red the other ring.</i> ???: &quot;Wasn't easy to recreate you know. The original is considered a powerful artifact that humans shouldn't be using in the first place. The prototypes were my attempt at making them usable without the side effects but they still break after being used 3 times. Of course that's only when used normally, trying to just open portal anymore will break it instantly. Now...my price.&quot; <i>Marcus would open his mirror as an image seemed to be crafted from a shattered fragments. The image would swirl into the old man's hand before what took shape would be...a simple apple.</i> ???: &quot;Ah, so beautiful...Yes, I must study this at once.&quot; <i>The man would rush into a door that had previously been hidden behind a bookshelf, taking the apple with him.</i> Marcus: &quot;Alright, now that that's done we can get back. That ring I gave you can open the roads of the uncreated night to cross dimensions but as you heard it will only be usable 3 times. If you use it somewhere a road hasn't been established then it'll break right away. Lucky for us, the road I used to come here the first time is nearby. That should lead back to our normal world.&quot;

<i>Elian wouldn't waste a moment with the chance he had been given all he needed to do was grab hold of Khnurm and given their current predicament that would be hard. He'd latch onto the arm Khnurm was using to keep himself from falling into the singularity. Slowly but surely Elian's limb regrowth would seem to hasten as he began to drain Khnurm of his lifeforce.</i> Khnurm: &quot;The hell do you think your doing?!? You're going to-!&quot; Elian: &quot;I know. I've weighed all possibilities and this one is for the best.&quot; <i>Elian would briefly look over to Kokoro. He looked somewhat apologetic but in the end he knew it couldn't be helped.</i> Elian: &quot;Apologies, but I'll have to grant your wish some other time.&quot; <i>It would only be a mere blink of an eye but both Elian and Khnurm would suddenly be moved right next to the point of their demise. Kokoro would also find that her feet would suddenly be grabbed from beneath by hands crafted from simple bone. They wouldn't be hard to break but their purpose simply seemed to stop her from being too reckless. As they were fully within the singularities their forms would both equally begin to break down, being compressed into nothingness. Khnurm would try to quickly escape, activating his stolen power but Elian would simply just seem to flash his own eyes in response.</i> Elian: &quot;That won't work anymore. We're both going down so that the future can be done over...&quot; <i>Finally the singularity would pass and nothing would remain of either combatant. All that would left is a giant hole where the wall and door that led into the next room had been and the gateway that was now seemingly pulsing with power. It seemed that it's power was increasing in response to Elian no longer being present, as if it had been set to react in such a way.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>Khnurm who had been reaching for the energy would suddenly be assaulted by the impending destruction heading in his direction. As predicted, he'd have nothing to counter such power with, his body becoming nothing more than ashes as the area heated up into a supernova. Elian would look on the energy he had collected would finally complete it's travel to him but now he was unsure if he even needed to use it any longer. However, soon he realized that it wasn't over yet.</i> Elian: &quot;That definitely bought enough time. But like a parasite their existence cling to the broken reality they've created.&quot; <i>The ashes would fall into the golden pools below, mixing with them until they became blackened. The liquid would begin flowing towards the center of the room after Kazuo's attack ended. It was slow but an underdeveloped arm would reach out from the ooze, burns seemed to cover it, slowly fading but obviously the entity dragging itself from nothing once more was shaking with both pain and rage.</i> Elian: &quot;If you won't die normally than it seems I have no choice but to undo this. Apollo, I'm putting my faith in the past you. Forgive me for what I'll be asking from you. But this way you'll end up the winner regardless.&quot; <i>Elian would focus the energy he had just received around him. For a moment it would seem to do nothing but slowly everything would begin to freeze in place as time had halted itself, Elian included. For a moment the figure trying to pull itself back into reality seemed to struggle against this but the frozen time seemed to restrain them almost completely. Time would grind backwards. It was slow, having to drag the stubborn resistor back with it but the power behind it was far greater than the parasite's. Slowly events would reverse. Kazuo's final attack would be undone. Kokoro's arm would be unbroken. The spark from before would fly out of Khnurm's body and back into the device engine from when they came. The singularity consuming the wall would be put back in place and Kokoro would've just arrived. Elian was on the floor behind Apollo. Finally rewinding time was no longer possible. All of the energy required to even rewind this far had been used up. It was difficult enough for it to override the will of the one who was resisting.</i> Elian would look back slightly confused. Before smiling albeit slightly. Elian: &quot;This was a good chance to finish me off, you know. Even against my defenses I can barely do anything against such relentless emotion. It's beyond me... You should also exercise more caution when extending a hand to a Lich like me. Physical touch would be all that's required for me to chip away at your sou- Oh, I see, so that's what happens... Apollo, you may not remember anymore but the events about to unfold will lead to that man becoming an invincible monster that eats reality itself. Next your planning to destroy his weapon to send him into the singularity but it won't work. Apollo, if we're going to avoid a bad ending I'm going to require your help.&quot; <i>This time Elian would actually use his good hand to grab Apollo's.</i> Elian: &quot;Use me as a projectile instead. I'll make sure they're crushed by the singularity this time.&quot; <i>Marcus would walk up to the doorway of the building and gently knock before speaking.</i> Marcus: &quot;Hey, old man. I have another of what you seek if you let me in. It's Marcus.&quot; <i>There'd be a brief moment of silence before the door creaked open.</i> ???: &quot;Yes, bring it to me...but...what do you want... Come inside. Same with the other with you. I may be old but I can tell when I'm being watched. Stay out there if you really want but don't try to spy on my work.&quot; <i>The voice would sound highly aged and disgruntled and a hint of green could be seen on the man's skin. Marcus didn't seem bugged by this in the slightest, following the man into a dark room full of many plant samples and red looking fruits.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>The fire would in fact disrupt the golden liquid but only enough to cause the hands forming from it to melt before splashing onto the ground. The fangs on Khnurm's body however simply seemed to retract back inside. As soon as they did however his skin would begin unnaturally shifting once more. Kokoro's punches would once again seem to connect but Khnurm seemed to almost be letting them do so without even flinching. Each strike on him though seemed to cause a change in the environment though. The area around them seemed to begin falling apart as the air itself seemed to be cracking around Khnurm. Suddenly the air itself seemed to be becoming thinner, too thin for even flames to continue burning. Even the wind would find trouble continuing to flow as there was nothing left to be pushes. Despite this Khnurm seemed to not have any trouble with this change. The only thing of note were the cracks appearing on his face from being struck so many times. More golden fluid was rushing out of the cracks but it didn't seem to drip to the floor as it did before.</i> Khnurm?: &quot;Still you would defy a god who devours others. Allow me to show you the true power of uncreation.&quot; <i>Suddenly, a blade appeared in his hand. One not made of anything physical as he had created before bu it seemed to be made from the cracks in the air that had been forming. Just the sight of the weapon was enough to make anyone feel even more suffocated than they most likely felt already. Khnurm would begin swinging the blade, the very fabric of creation coming undone as he moved it. Regardless of one's defenses it was obvious that if this attack hit it would completely destroy whatever it touched. However, before he could even use the weapon his yes would light up as if he was noticing something else occurring. The slightly crooked gate that had been behind them all as they were fighting was whirring with power. The energy from within was beginning to flow into a stream, a stream heading outside of the room and to the one who had been waiting there. Elian would stand to receive the energy as it slowly trickled into the Lich's body. He'd just look back into the room with a confidant but calm smile, fear no longer present in his eyes.</i> Elian: &quot;A little more and I'll be the one to unmake you monster. Don't even think about interfering either. This is as good as fate now.&quot; <i>Despite his words though Khnurm would still head for the stream, jumping into the air and trying to grasp a hold of it himself as it flowed above everyone's heads. His eyes were desperate once more, as if he knew what would happen if the Lich acquired the power he needed.</i> Marcus: &quot;Right...we'll be looking for a lonely looking shack at the edge of the city. There should be someone there that can give us what we need to cross between the dimensions. Bit of a mad old coot but he's the only one I've seen use it before.&quot; <i>Marcus was still not very used to Red's behaviors but he wouldn't actively protest it. There were plenty of...interesting people in the world and learning to put up with their behaviors was somewhat vital to getting anything done. The city would have plenty of tall buildings and hiding spaces. Some of them almost seemed to be intentional in design. Despite this from higher up the location of a strange looking small building could be seen with some distance between it and other buildings. There was even some plant life around the building that seemed to be the result of lack of maintenance. The strangest of the plant life though would seem to take the form of oddly shaped trees that were red in color. Deformed red fruits also would be growing on their branches. They almost resembled apples in some ways but aside from their imperfect shape each fruit almost seemed to posses some quality about it that was inherently wrong. This building was what Marcus seemed to be heading for.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>Elian looks down towards Kazuo. He'd have a serious glance on his face, he almost looked frustrated but it didn't seem to be directed towards the one he was looking towards.</i> Elian: &quot;Killing me actually wouldn't do much right now. Without having direct access to the gates power I wouldn't be able to rewind time with that...thing present. I guess there's no choice then. I suppose this is my mistake. Alright, I'll end this all at once but first Apollo will have to allow a prediction I made to come true. Time is quite fickle and it's flow can only be influenced in a precise way. So Apollo...has to disappear. If he does then I'll be able to access the gate's power without interference and then from there I can rewind back to before those sparks became fused with the thief. From there I'll ensure that this mess is prevented.&quot; <i>The monster would end up being struck but no amount of force seemed to be able to move it. That is until Kokoro strike's Khnurm's body. Something could be heard cracking and suddenly the force keeping the monster frozen would be released, causing it to fly upwards uncontrollably. Despite taking the blow the corrupted god doesn't change expression, their desperation doesn't fade. Rather, a set of fangs seem to form out of their chest with the intent to bite down on Kokoro's fist with an excessive amount of force.</i> Khnurm?: &quot;Those who don't offer their praise will be consumed...I'll take everything else you have to offer until I'm full.&quot; <i>His words are oddly calm as the golden liquid leaking from his eyes seemed to flood out more rapidly. The liquid would begin spreading across the floor, hands seeming to reach out from within. Several of them would begin stretching outward, reaching towards her guardian and attempting to latch on and restrain them. Meanwhile, Marcus would simply gesture towards the first portal that seemed to lead to the more modern looking city.</i> Marcus: &quot;What was it? Light Empire? Illuminate Kingdom? I'm sure the name will come to me. Heard this place is almost just like a city from our previous world so that's probably where we should go. I know the guy there anyway...that's good at moving between places. Bit of a weirdo but not in the malicious way...&quot; <i>Without stopping to speak anymore Marcus would walk through the portal, not seeming to want to stay where they currently are much longer. Beyond the portal would simply lead to a street in a rather clean looking part of a more or less normal looking city. The only thing that would really stand out were bits and pieces of odd architecture and the fact that the streetlights seemed to glow with a blueish hue.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
OOC: Just tired most days from work. Everything going on tends to make my line of work even busier. I'm trying to post at least every 2 days but sometimes I just fall asleep without meaning to. IC: <i>Elian's fearful look wouldn't fade, in fact it would grow stronger as the two rushed forward.</i> Elian: &quot;Are you trying to become infected?!? Don't just recklessly approach those...things! They're the result of a misaligned divine engine! If they collide with you at all you'll become nothing but a parasite!&quot; <i>As he said that a golden ichor would begin leaking from Khnurm's eyes as their skin seemed to begin shifting on its own. The once pained man would begin laughing to himself seemingly uncontrollably. Suddenly the atmosphere within the room would change. The space around the hing that Khnurm now was no longer felt real. Apollo and Kokoro wouldn't have any need to worry about the sparks as they'd begin being pulled into whatever Khnurm now was. Each one seemed to distort his form more and more. His whole body suddenly began to glow as the power within seemed to burn him from within.</i> Khnurm?: &quot;I understand now. I was the one all along! The only one who all mortal kind must worship. N-no, not just must they will! T-they have to! I...&quot; <i>He almost looked desperate in a way, like a drug addict looking for his next fix as he stared at both Apollo and Kokoro.</i> Khnurm?: &quot;Worship me...&quot; <i>The creature from before who had been sitting on the opposite side of the gate would suddenly jump up, clawing its way over and beginning to try and lunge down to try and pin Apollo and Kokoro. However, the desperate creature who was now demanding there worship would just merely gesture towards the beast without even taking their eyes away from the two. The monster would be held in mid-air, unable to move and decidedly surprised by its sudden loss in momentum. The man's eyes twitched as he stared at them.</i> Khnurm?: &quot;Worship me!&quot; <i>Elian seemed to grow conflicted. He stared down at his in tact hand, not yet approaching but slowly drifting, almost as if he was hoping to not be noticed. Kaz and Asumi would soon be able to see the Lich idly looking over the situation, however, not being within the room directly would cause them some disorientation from looking at it directly. Meanwhile, within the gateway Red and Marcus would continue walking. Marcus seemed to try and focus on where he was going but was clearly confused by this place as much as anyone might expect a human to be.</i> Marcus: &quot;Ok...yeah...we're close to something. I think. Trying really hard to not send us into the future or too far into the past. A day should be fine right? Because I think we might end up a day in the past. Maybe...&quot; <i>The energy from before the had been keeping the walkway open would seem to begin splitting a section of the strange flowing wall open. Within this crack was an intense amount of light and what seemed to be a strange but modern looking city full of lights and activity. </i> Marcus: &quot;Forget the name of this place but maybe...&quot; <i>Another rift would open revealing a large desert and a city full of pyramids as well.</i> Marcus: &quot;Uh...not a great draw...&quot; <i>A final rift would appear showing what seemed to be a small village with a large temple in its center. The buildings seemed to mix together modern construction with religious architecture in a way that almost seemed unnatural.</i> Marcus: &quot;Thousand Gods? Easy to remember at least. Continuing to wonder here probably isn't the best option. Gotta pick a place where we can find another night road I guess.&quot;
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>Khnurm's sword would be unable to do anything about the sudden explosive force coming from within it as the blade had been made in haste and had was crafted without any immunity to other magical attacks. The blade would break apart leaving the man helpless as he fell towards the singularity. There was a look of absolute desperation in his eyes as the power from before that had allowed him to regain his senses seemed to surge. Suddenly, his momentum was able to stop completely just before he would've been able to be reduced to nothing by the singularity. However, seemingly as the price for this the life that had filled his eyes began to diminish once more. His hatred would begin to subside. The singularity would at this point run it's course as well.</i> Khnurm: &quot;You...how dare you make me...use it up...I...&quot; <i>He'd barely be able to stand up straight while Elian on the other hand seemed to now be doing marginally better. His limbs seemed to already be reforming though the process wasn't exactly speedy. He'd still somehow manage to stand though. Seemingly he was simply ignoring any normally sense of balance someone would normally require to do so.</i> Elian: &quot;I was wondering when they'd be forced to use it. The power they took can only be used once before being used up completely. Such is the nature of a thief. They might be able to take what they want but they only have what they steal at the end of the day.&quot; <i>The pressure pinning them against the gate would end for both Red and Marcus but the creature in front of them was beginning to grow impatient. Marcus would give off a sigh before allowing the strange energy flowing from his mirror to take shape once more. This time it seemed to flow much more harshly.</i> Marcus: &quot;Now...we'll have to go somewhere that thing can't follow us. I Din't want to do this but I'll try to open a path in the gate myself. Problem is I'm not too good at navigating through this space time stuff.&quot; <i>A section of the energy flowing through the gate would seem to part to create a path of some kind as the energy Marcus created seemed to open it up. Regardless of what Red did Marcus would begin to step through only taking a moment to look back and see if she was coming.</i> Marcus: &quot;Can't make any promises towards ending up anywhere you want to go but this route will at least us some...time...Damn, didn't even mean for that play on words.&quot; <i>The creature, not caring one way or another about their plans would lunge at them, however, with the gates massive side the creature's horns would collide with it whether or not anyone was there. Spark would fly off of the gate's metal frame before hanging in the air on the other side...next to where Khnurm was now standing. The sparks in question seemed to just hang in the air. Something about them would clearly be...wrong in nature. There very existence seemed out of place even to the casual observer. The sparks began homing in on whatever was closest...in this case Khnurm. A couple would begin flying into him and with each one he'd react with a noticeably pained expression.</i> Khnurm: &quot;This...Why does it hurt? It's so much but...No, not enough...I...it hurts!&quot; <i>For once, there was something close to fear in Elian's eyes as the truth of the sparks dawned on him. He was left in something akin to shock as his own memories seemed to preoccupy him.</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>Elian would look back slightly confused. Before smiling albeit slightly.</i> Elian: &quot;This was a good chance to finish me off, you know. Even against my defenses I can barely do anything against such relentless emotion. It's beyond me... You should also exercise more caution when extending a hand to a Lich like me. Physical touch would be all that's required for me to chip away at your soul. Though I'd ask you give me a moment anyway. These vile emotions seem to be giving me a headache...Plus, I can feel the night approaching. I need a moment to predict how things will change.&quot; <i>Meanwhile, Khnurm wouldn't even seem to care to dodge such an attack. They'd take the impact but only seem to stagger from it, as if the pain was being ignored for the sake of revenge. Kokoro would feel Khnurm's attention divert to her as his rage filled eyes looked in her direction. However, his only response was to continue speaking in a half-aware tone, the same words over and over again.</i> Khnurm: &quot;Just die...just die...just die!&quot; <i>It couldn't be seen but it could be felt. The venom in his words seemed to cluster around his body as if making a field around him of sorts. However, the wall at the end of the tunnel just above the opening point of the door would begin collapsing. It would begin crumbling to pieces as everything around it began to be sucked into a single space. Khnurm who had been closest to the door since he had been the one to open it would begin feeling himself get sucked towards it as well. A sword made from a strange looking metal would appear in his hand before he would use it to cling to the ground, stabbing through the floor. On the other side of the wall, Marcus and Red would be able to feel the pull as well. Marcus would simply grab onto the side of the gate to keep himself from getting pulled towards it. He'd also pull out his mirror before pointing it towards Red and the gate as a similar looking energy to the one flowing through the gate streamed out of it. it would collide with the part of the gate Red was still standing in front of. Seeming to make the flow from before come to a halt. This would effectively make the once free flowing energy into a solid state.</i> Marcus: &quot;It's not usable in that state but that should keep you from being sucked through the gate. Geeze, did Elian leave a vacuum on or something. I could make this gate easier to use for someone not used to time manipulation but now doesn't seem like the best time to talk about that...&quot; <i>Just as Marcus said that a large and familiar looking creature would slowly walk into the room from the door they had originally entered. It seemed to hesitate in its approach to the gate but it was clear it was slowly getting over its apprehension from the look in its eyes. All at the same time something would begin creaking as if being torn out of its foundations.</i>

<i>It would start with silence. A figure would linger high above the city of Shibuya. An empty feeling but an ever present one with a touch of death mixed in. A pale figure would be looking down, a calm smile forever present of their face and eyes that looked to be dead but were still twitching with excitement.</i> &quot;Such a beautiful site. Mortals truly are breathtaking aren't they... To think they've built so much without even a hint of divine power. I'm not here to see such things though. Let's see...Yes, those positions seem to be the most likely.&quot; <i>Suddenly, there would be the feeling of twisted divine power being spread throughout the city. It almost felt to be everywhere but in fragments rather than as a wave. It would be overwhelming at first but slowly each fragment seemed to vanish along with a presence disappearing as well from somewhere within the city. The reason would be because these fragments were actually doorways that seemed to serve the purpose of allowing someone entree into Elian's competition. Before anyone could react only 4 more gateways remained. One would be behind a tree at Kosei High School, some may remember this location. One would appear within the establishment known as GYM though what could be noted was that this location was closed at the moment. Between two bookcases at Tokyo's Metropolitan Library there's be another gateway emerging. Finally, one would appear just outside of anyone's view at the Reiko Airlines. The gateways themselves would appear as rifts that would seem to bend time around them, it was as if the pure essence of time itself was slowly pouring out of them, causing anyone who didn't have at least a basic protection against divine power to freeze in place if they were to approach them.</i> &quot;I should be going too. I have plenty of guests to entertain now. How troublesome that most aren't very welcomed company.&quot; <i>Elian himself would begin to dissolve bit by bit until nothing but ash being blow in the wind remained. His body for all intent and purpose was gone for now.</i>
God Complex: Last True Angel
<i>For the most part everything seemed normal... At least, things would seem normal to the everyday men and women who roamed the streets. It was business as usual within Shibuya but for those who held the power to sense such energy a large amount of divine aura would be leaving a trail throughout the entire city. By no means was this energy normal, it seemed to waver and contort to pester the view of those who held a similar presence and it seemed to reek of death in a way that would be almost natural. Of course, it wasn't only the divine who could see it but anyone with even a minor amount of detection for the strange might be able to pick up on it as well, as the energy wasn't exactly trying to remain invisible. The end of the trail would lead to an empty lot that had yet to have anything built on top of it. There was an unnatural shifting of matter within the area that seemed to mostly be subtle and effect nothing but anyone looking could see the floor shift slightly occasionally and the air sometimes rapidly decrease in temperature before returning to normal. A crowd of strange looking individuals would already be gathered. They all seemed to either have a divine or otherwordly aura of their own and also it would seem they were drawn to this place by the same thing. Among them an especially strong presence could be felt from some. Of note were a young man with red hair and tan skin. His eyes were narrow and he seemed to have a permanent smirk on his face. A small crowd had also already gathered around him as he leaned back against a wall surrounded by people who seemed to stand as if they were with him. Another would be a rather odd gentleman who already had a portable shop parked outside the lot, he'd be announcing his wares to anyone nearby. Mostly he seemed to sell things most would consider part of a scam but a small amount of energy could be felt from his products suggesting more to them. Finally was an almost too perfect looking women who stood a little away from everyone else. Her hair would be an unnatural mix of many colors and she would simply have a bored expression on her face as she looked everyone present over. Above all things seemed to be the fact that everyone was waiting yet none of them knew exactly what for.</i>
