Sun team: a new dawn.
Click to go to bottom
Everyone returned to Nohr's casttle after a long fight against the Heart of Darkness, everyone went to their rooms after some talk, they decided to call it a night and rest.
In the middle of the night, the only one who was not sleeping was Leo, he was with a candle and writting a few letters.
*Greetings, I know you probably don't know me or maybe yes, who knows. Instead of opening a portal, bring you here and dropping you a lot of strange facts, I've decided to write you a letter.
Tico, my assistant has told me that you could help us with a problem against... A magical being we have here. First: I want you to know, is that this is going to be dangerous, so you must trust your skills. Second: I also have left a summary of the current events, you will need to know a bit so please, read it twice if you need it. Third: we have a dragon with us, I just say it because she always scares everyone.
Thank you for reading this.
Leo: done... It tires me to write three letters...
???: Leo, are you still awake?
Leo: that voice... Corrin?
The door opened and Corrin went in.
Corrin: hi, I had a nightmare and I went to walk around.
Leo: why have you come here?
Corrin: I also heard you talking alone.
Leo: I've said everything I've written?
Corrin: I think is fine, we need all the help we can get.
Leo: true, Anyways is late, you should go to bed.
Corrin: yeah, you are right, good night.
Leo: good night.
Corrin left Leo's room, Leo then blowed the candle to turn it off and he went to sleep, but suddenly he said.
Leo: Tico now that you are still here spying, go to deliver the letters.
Suddenly a vase moved and it turned to Tico, she went to the letters and picked them up.
Tico: damnit... I feel lazy now...
Leo: don't spy me the next time.
Tico: Din't spi mi thi-
Leo turned to Tico while placing a hand on his brynhildr, that made Tico run away liie if she was running away from a demon.
She went to deliver the letters and returned to Nohr.
Now at the morning, the three heroes opened and read the letter, what will they do?
A 30 year old man wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy-like clothes, who recently came to this world by a mysterious man named Mr. Dream, read the letter that was given to him. He looks unenthusiastic.
Monoarty: Oh boy. Another adventure... I hope it isn't as bad as that stupid fair.
He looks down at his side and takes out his gun. He polishes it. He opens the chamber. Mini robotic arms pulled out bullets from his arm and puts them in the chamber. He closes it. He looks back at the letter. He sighs.
I bet this is what happened to Monochrome. I haven't seen him in a while. I think I'll take this letter's offer and take care of this "magical being". Firstly though, I need to know where the hell I am at...
He heads to the courtyard of Nohr and looks around.
A small girl carefully tore open the letter. She read the details and began to laugh as she did. A dragon! That's amazing! Mariko playfully swung her legs back and forth continuing to read. After she was done pushed her fingers through her brown hair, giggling at the chance in front of her.
Ok! Time to go! No need to think!
Mariko grabbed a pack of balloons while skipping outside. She grabbed her sledgehammer on the way, happily heading towards Tico.
Our chaotically insane goddess was lounging in her shrine when she got the letter. She teared it open, read it, and thought for a moment.
Hmm...magic huh? Sounds like a perfect target for my new batch of weapons! Oh, but how should I appear? The classic poof? Get shot over out of a cannon? Oh, I've got it! I'll pull off a GRRRRRRRRRAND ENTRANCE!!! I suppose I should begin preparations for my arrival.
Star does indeed preparations. An hour later, the sky's around Nohr's castle began to darken in preparation to Star's entrance.
While the sky was getting darker, Mariko and Mono reached the doors at the same moment from different ways, they looked at each other and they noticed they came here for the same reason.
The doors began to open, but suddenly something bursted from the other side breaking part of the doors.
Kushala: Greeting humans!
Suddenly, a wild Kushala appeared and she happily stared at Mono and Mariko who were a bit amazed by the sudden appearance of the dragon.
Kushala: what happens humans? Why are you so scared? We are waiting for you so follow me! I'll guide you through the casttle, and don't worry because if we get lost I can destroy a few walls, humans say I shouldn't but it has a lot of walls.
The dragon turned back and went inside the casttle, you looked at each other for an instant, depsite of how this has started this looks like is going to be interesting.
Meanwhile, Leo was in the rooftop, he was making a signal to the clouds that were over the casttle.
Leo: I think this one is Star, let's see if I can make her land here, I think part of me already know she would try to perform a great entrance, well, let's see what she has prepared.
Monoarty slowly follows Kushala with his left hand ready to draw his gun when he needs to.
Monoarty: Where the absolute hell did Mr. Dream send me to? This is one of the weirdest places I have been. and I have been to Japan. sigh Let's get this over with...
AH! There really was a dragon! Mariko followed Kushala staring her scales and tail. Wow, they looks really cool and sharp.
Hey Drago! Can you really breathe fire? And fly? And how did you learn how to talk? And the same language too! Can you speak other languages? Is there a dragon language?!
Mariko bounced with questions as she became tempted to grab the dragon's tail. She then decided to help destroy the walls if they got lost. After all her sledgehammer did that excellently
And woah a cowboy! You look really cool too! Do you have a gun? And a horse? Do you have a rope that you can tie up animals? Do you have the fastest draw in the West?!
The sky becomes darker than a moonless, starless night as a tear in reality appears above the castle. Star floats out of the tear with a new red coat and a pair of boots and gloves.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!!! Tremble, fools, for you stand in the presence of Star, goddess of insanity and chaos! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
As Star touches down onto the roof of the castle, the tear closes and the sky goes back to normal. She turns to Leo and pulls the letter he sent her out of nowhere.
Hey, I got your letter. Mind explaining this problem you have? I'd just love to have a target for my new weapons. Also, sorry if I scared anyone with that grand entrance. I usually just suddenly appear of out nowhere, so I thought I'd give a grand entrance a try.
Kushala looked at Mariko for a second and the she looked down trying to process that ammount of questions.
Kushala: well... Uh... I can't breathe fire, but I can breathe wind... I can fly... I can communicate with other Kushalas and humans... And... If there is a dragon language... I would like to see it.
luckily for the walls, they soon reached the meeting room, where a blonde girl with Pony tail and a battle a girl with gray hair and a strange pink haired woman who was eating popcorns were there.
Tico: FINALLY!!!!!! we have been waiting for 6 milli-
Tico: okay okay...
Meanwhile Leo, he chuckled after seeing Star filled with energy, something he needs is people filled with energy and star was perfect.
Leo: I'm glad to see you again Star, please follow me to the meeting room, I'm sure the others are already waiting there.
After a bit of walk, Star and Leo reached the meeting room where everyone was waitting, everyone took a seat (except kushala who sat down on the ground.)
A few seconds later, another woman went inside, she had a large ponytail, black eyes, she was wearing a black t-shirt, black gloves, black trousers and black shoes, all of them looked very confortable to allow good movility.
Selena: greetings, I'm Selena and I'm the one who will give you the details. Well, this is our problem, we are against a magical being called Hate, let me tell you she is very dangerous and she has already slayed the dragon of light Naga. She has created her own them formed with the following persons:
Raal, a very intelligent person, he is not a good at fight however, he is very smart and he knows about poisons.
Crow of Cainhurst, strong, dangerous, and crazy, a perfect combination for a psychopatyc guy who likes blood.
Aina, mysterious woman who suffers amnesia, I only know she is strange, and that makes her dangerous.
She has also teammed up with ridley who...
Tico: Metroid universe, just to let you know.
Selena: if you have stopped to interrupt me... We need your help to deal with Hate, any questions? Or I continue?
Monoarty: ...So you are telling me that a being called Hate killed a dragon, formed a group with a poisons expert, a bloodcrazed killer, a girl that we don't know is dangerous or not, and Ridley from the fucking Metroid series? That's the strangest thing I have stumbled upon. I fought along side Richter Belmont and Alucard against the forces of Dracula, and yet this beats that.
Monoarty laughs, then return to composure.
cough Please continue.
Right, I think I see the gimmick here. Sounds like there's three bad people for three invited helpers, a giant bio-mechanical space dino for a bounty Hunter, and a big bad person for the other people.
Star leans back in her seat, listening to the conversation.
So, what do you want us to do exactly? Kill, beat into unconsciousness, really I'm okay with anything.
*As the group is talking, a familar sounding voice calls into the room.*
Now, forgive me if I'm mistaken, but it would seems someone is talking about the snake eyed bastard I'm hunting.
*Sam would walk into the room. He takes up a chair and sits in it. He rests his head on a fist, frowning slightly*
Leo. You know. I'm a little bit insulted you didn't call me in straight away. I mean, I have an assisstant for these exact reasons and you know that Snake is a good old "friend" of mine. But, that's beside the point. What's Raal doing now?
Mariko listened carefully, though not really understanding what Selena was saying, she nodded along pretending like she knew. I'll probably get it when we get there... right?
Yeah, please continue.
Selena: actually, kill them is just temporally, because Hate has resurrected them, if we kill them she will resurrect them again.
Leo: you think that woman is just another typical "bad" of the history, but I can tell you she is very smart and dangerous, the last time she got very close to destroy four kingdoms at once.
Selena: Ylisse has already succumbed to the darkness, in just two days, now we must know what her next move is, Star, I would really like to kill Hate and end this, however don't expect to do that so easily. For now we need to take advantage and be a step ahead, I'm sure she will try to kill another god or try to manipulate him.
Corrin: but in the worlds there are a lot of gods, how can we know which one is she going to go?
Tico: probably she will go to a god she can manipulate, she has already killed one, for the next one she will manipulate it.
Kushala: I know where she is going to go.
Samus: probably she went to find the other "orb of light"
Leo: I'm sure she already knows what really is.
Kushala: uh humans... I know...
Tico: let's use Corrin as bait, nothing bad can happen.
Corrin: Nothing bad!?
Leo: maybe we can use you as bait!
Samus: I agree.
Corrin: me too.
Tico: But I suck as bait...
Selena: guys, are you done with the comedy? Kushala has said she has an idea.
Everyone slowly turned to Kushala who was licking her claws but she stopped when she noticed everyone was looking at her.
Kushala: when I went to a golden caverns under my territory to repel a dragon who was there, I noticed a few holes that dragon didn't used and I looked at them, there is when I felt... like something was calling me... Like if something were trying to make me go deeper into the caverns.
Leo: why would Hate go there?
Kushala: I still feel that, but the humans who came with me don't feel it, if she said human rules doesn't apply to her and she has been close to my territory, something very probable, I-m sur she can feel it as well.
Everyone opened his eyes in surprise, just what Kushala has said was very true.
Leo: so she is always taking advantage about that fact...
Samus: Human rules doesn't apply to her...
Tico: we can say, rules of this multiverse.
Corrin: it really worths a try, what do you think guys?
Everyone looked at each other, Sam saw how Leo whispered to him an apologize but despite that, looks like the group has a plan.
Mariko nodded quickly in seeing that the group was reaching a decision. So caverns. Got it! Go there, find Hate, and "ask" her to stop... whatever she is doing! I got this!
Yeah! I think we can do this!
Mariko gripped her hammer tightly with excitement.
Well, this is getting quite complex. This formless is the same one who's been bugging you for a bit, right? Hmm. And with Raal, they've probably ready for anything we can throw at them. This is going to be rough. But, um. Not to change the subject but who exactly is she?
*Sam gave Selena a cold, analytic stare.*
Hmm... alright, beat into unconsciousness it is! As for being dangerous, to you people maybe, but for me I'll be perfectly fine. She can kill me as many times as she wants, but thanks to one of my insane ideas, I shall revive indefinitely. I'm honestly surprised nobody takes advantage of revival items. I mean, you can raise the long dead with some of them, why not mass produce them? Well, that's what I did. Granted, it has made me careless, but unstoppable. Back to the topic at hand, just point me in the right direction and I can promise you that this Hate shall face a fate worse than death! I shall kill her, revive her, kill her again before she can do anything, rinse and repeat.
Star speaks with great bravado and confidence, happy to soon have a target to deliver a beat down to.
Monoarty: Human rules don't apply? Sounds like someone I know.
Monoarty starts thinking for a second.
Alright, sounds easy enough. I just need maybe 4-5 months of rations, maybe more. Preferably with lots of iron or metals in them. Lots and lots of iron and metal.
Selena smiled and happily waved at Sam.
Selena: oh, I'm Selena, I just joined this... group recently so I'm here because we share an objetive, oh and he is Thanatos, someone who should have introduce himself earlier.
From the mark on Selena's left hand back a black light went out.
Thanatos: I'm Selena's Eidolon, my duty is serve her, anyways, if you need something feel free to ask, I'll probably ignore it... But you can try...
Selena: cheerful as always... Well guys, let's go!!!
Everyone left the area, Tico stopped Mono for a second and gave him a card, saying him that he would need to show it to the person that appears on it and he would have what he asked before.
With everything said and done the group went to Kushala's territory, there Kushala guided them to a hole on the ground that took them to the golden caverns.
At first moment the shiny gold was annoying, but after a few seconds your eyes adapted to it.
Leo: is literally filled with gold... Now I understand why Geist has that golden armor...
Corrin: we could pick some...
Samus: focus on the task guys.
Selena: where do we go now?
Kushala: a bit deeper.
The group went a bit deeper into the caverns until they reached a large room that had a colossal hole in one of the walls.
Kushala: is here, do you feel it?
Corrin: hmm not at all...
Selena: really? How it feels?
Thanatos: is calling me... Telling me to continue, to not turn back... it wants me to get closer, but I don't know what it is...
Samus: let's go then.
Leo: allow me.
Leo summoned a little flare to light the cave up, Thanatos did something similar and he went next to Selena.
Now with some light they went inside the cave.
...well this is...okay, I suppose. This cave is pretty generic, but there is something at the back of my head that tells me to go down it. Suppose that's just my adventurers intuition. That, or it's the spontaneous idea to run into every danger I possibly can. Hopefully this cave isn't trapped, otherwise everyone might die.
Star walks down the cave with a carefree attitude.
Selena. Hm? Nice to meet you. We'll need all the help we can get.
*Sam would be mostly silent in thought as they headed too and through the cavern.*
So, they're down here, yes? Hmm. Well, I suppose snakes do like holes.
Monoarty takes out his gun. He notices his bullets have disappeared. He opens the chamber. Tiny robotic arms come out from his arm and put bullets from his arm into his gun's chamber. They retract back. He closes the chamber. A monitor shows up on his arm.
Food Levels: [.....0000] 40%
Monoarty: Need to get some food in.
Monoarty grabs a pack of rations and eats it. The monitor updates.
Food Levels:  100%
Monoarty: So, what exactly is this "Hate"? Demon from hell? Humanity's feeling in one being?
(edited by Mono)
Oh, this feels like it will take a while... a good time to ask questions! But what to ask...
Um, Thanatos, you said you were a "Eidolon". Um, what's that? Like a familiar? And if you are how'd she get you? Where did she get you? Can you disappear and reappear when Selena wants you to?
The group continued walking through the cave, there was nothing strange, but considering how dark the cave is probably the best thing is be carefull.
Tico: Nah, don't worry Star, I don't feel... WATCH OUT!!!
Everyone jumped away from... Something, but then Tico started to laugh, suddenly Thanatos turned into a warrior with black armor he ran to grab Tico in her head, raise her and brutally smash her to the ground with a colossal hit that managed to shake the ground a bit.
Selena: good job.
Corrin: remind me to not annoy him...
Leo: she actually deserves it.
Thanatos turned to an orb again and went with Selena, meanwhile Kushala picked Tico up, placed her in her back and the group continued walking.
Leo: oh right, Hate is a dangerous magical being that devours hate to turn it into power, is a short way to explain it.
Corrin: she is very annoying.
Samus: I actually think Tico is more annoying.
Everyone nodded to what Samus said, there was not anyone at Tico's annoyance level.
While Thanatos was ignoring Mariko storm of questions, Selena noticed something, she looked at the ground and noticed it was starting to change, instead of rocks, she saw there was starting to be floor, like if they were entering a building.
Selena: looks like we are getting close.
Samus: I don't detect anything strange... But I can see the floor has changed...
Kushala: Snif snif
Leo: let's keep going.
The group continued walking, they began to feel the air was changing like if it was being easier to breath, soon the group reached a dark place that looked like a laboratory.
Corrin: where are the lights?
Suddenly, in front of the group a hologram appeared, it was just a floating ball with eyes and mouth.
???: welcome back ma... Oh... Who are you?
Kushala: hi... Uh... Floating human head...?
Selena: uh... Hi... Who are you?
OS: me? I'm OS, nice to meet you :)
The floating ball clossed his eyes, he looked kinda happy.
Leo: what is this place?
OS: this is my master's lab, have you come to visit it :o?
Thanatos: yes, we are here for a visit, but is hard if can't see anything.
OS: my apologies, let me turn the lights on :3.
Suddenly a flash of light blinded the team for a second, when their eyes adapted to the light they saw they were on a colossal build.
The group were on a room that was empty, except for a ray of light that was in the middle of the room. In the walls there were some kind of symbols surrounded by a golden frame.
The walls where filled with cords that were carrying energy to the symbols and the ground was filled with all kind of marks and drawings of robots and weapons.
OS: now we are at the entrance, where do you want to go? I can show you the main lab, or the master's prototypes! Do you want to see his weapon creations? He tested some and looked great!
Kushala: and this is under my territory... I have to do a lot of marks...
Leo: w-what do you think guys? Where do we go?
How'd you miss a place this big under your own turff, dragon? I know every rock between my lab and the earth's core.
Well, whatever. Personally, I'm interested in the weapon creations. If this is linked to Raal, and I can almost guaruntee that it is, I want to make sure he isn't building anti matter bombs or shit like that again. He makes these things with suprising ease. I'd say it's impressive, but I can do better.
Hate, huh? Well, there's one thing I truly hate, and that's long and boring speeches. I mean, if you're monologuing it's fine, but if you just keep going on and on and on it's going to get old and I'm going to get bored. As for where we go, I say the weapons. Then again, that was obvious of me, seeing as how I'm always making new weapons.
Star's boots, gloves and cape suddenly have glowing lines and circles in them that were probably hidden.
Ah, there's the light up, function I was waiting for. Going to have to work on that function when I get home so it turns on when I want it to.
Monoarty seems calm.
Monoarty: A laboratory. Finally, a familiar setting. I miss the calm that resides in labs...
Monoarty goes up to the floating ball.
Monoarty: You there. Take me to your creator's prototypes. I want to see how he build his robots compared how mine built me.
Mariko didn't notice Thanatos ignoring her, but she stopped asking questions when the floating head appeared.
Woah! What are you!? A hologram!?? Where are you being projected from? Who built you? And Why? And um...
Mariko slowed down when she heard she could explore.
Oh! Can we go to the lab?
OS: the weapons? Of course! Follow me, we have a lot of to see, in first place let me tell you I have data for most of the prototypes and all of them are sealed so only and ONLY my master can use them, however for taking a look we are not going to die. Even when the chances are at 0.0000002 % hahaha.
Corrin: excuse me?
The floating ball went to one of the drawings in the walls and he flew through it. Kushala got curious and went to that wall, she slowly walked to it and the group saw how she managed to go into it.
Kushala: I just went into the wall! And is another room!!!
Samus: the wall is probably connected to a portal.
Leo: I see... So this lab uses portals... Just like someone I know.
Everyone went into the wall, they went through it and they appeared in a room that was filled with all kind of weapons. There was a rapier of light, a bow of darkness, an ice spear, a strange spear filled with runes, a sword and shield and more and more weapons.
Corrin: you said those weapons are sealed, why?
OS: *I don't want anyone to use those weapons, if you see someone trying to grab one of those weapons kill him*, my master said that.
Tico recovered and she stood up, she jumped over Kushala's head.
Tico: This *master* is very skilled, because this lab is completelly invisible and also, the security system is amazing.
Tico: if we trigger the alarms, the pictures on the ground will began to get filled with magic and they would create robots and weapons to assist in the defense. Also... I'm sure this OS is not idiot and knows self-defense.
OS: I have full control of this lab, if I see you are doing something strange I will kill you, as my master ordered me.
Thanatos: but why create weapons just to leave them here?
OS: according to my master: *I'm bored*
Selena: I see...
Selena looked at some of the weapons, she then saw a familiar weapon, a rapier that was done with darkness.
Selena: wait... That rapier... Eh, OS, what is that rapier?
OS: I don't know.
Selena: tell me everything about that weapon.
Tico: give us the datasheet!
Kushala: go down!
Kushala began to shake herself but Tico was not going down because she was holding around Kushala's head.
OS: let me see... I only have this:
Current user: ???
NO MORE DATA AVALIABLE.
Samus: current user...?
Leo: what does that mean?
OS: I don't know, my master has not given me more data.
OS: what do you want to do now?
Hmm...cool stuff. Normally I'd steal everything and run for it, but I know better when walking with a party. This master seems a lot like me. Maybe we should compare notes...when we find this guy. Who is this master anyway? Perhaps they might be a third party that we could potentially get onto our side? From what I remember of Hate's party, none of them are weaponsmiths.
Star examines the weapons, making mental notes of them in her head.
*Sam chuckles slightly.*
So, this place. What ever it is, I don't think Raal is involved. These weapons are too... archaic. Too... magically based to be something he would make. So, that would mean... Hmm. I think I'm starting to understand.
*Sam looks closer at the icy spear.*
Seems like a replica of Brionach... Interesting. Anyway. You said there was a prototype room, correct? These things have made me curious about what could around there. E-erm. You know. For investigation purposes, of course.
Soooooo coooolllll. Magic infused weapons... Images becoming robots... yawn Really interesting. None of them I could use anyways.
Monoarty pretends to go to sleep mode, and then wakes up.
Anyways, where are the other prototypes? Maybe they will be more interesting.
No one is answering my questions... well, I'll just... walk behind them? But I want to ask about the weapons. Maybe just one question at a time.
OS, why is this place inside a cave and not somewhere more secret? Is security really that good?
(edited by Mariko_Kureji)
The floating ball first looked at Star.
OS: I don't know who is my master, I only know he created me, well, and more things of the laboratory an-
Suddenly the orb floated to Mariko, looks like he really like that question.
OS: finally! I've been waitting for this moment! Ejem: Have you seen the cords in the walls? They have two tasks: the first one is to be a natural light for this laboratory.
While Mariko was being bullied with an explanation that was being harder to understand per moments, Leo looked at Star with curiosity.
Leo: you've made a point there, if this *Master* is a third party, maybe we can ask him for some help, maybe he can even create more weapons for us... Hey, OS.
Suddenly OS stopped talking to Mariko who was now a bit scared, the orb flew a bit up and looked at Leo.
Leo: two things: 1) she asked about security, not how this lab works...
OS: Security? It just makes the drawings get filled with magic and start spawning the being they are, for example, the human drawing creates an human of magic that attacks the inturders, if it dies the drawing creates another.
Leo: 2) Could we talk with your master?
OS: I think, when he returns we can talk with him, for now let's take a look to the prototypes!
OS went to another wall, when you followed him you appeared on another room that was filled with models at human-scale, those models were:
A warrior armed with a great sword.
What looked like an armored turtle.
A strange machine with 4 arms and legs.
A strange tree growing up from a seed.
OS: well!? What do you think!?
Selena: what are these things?
OS: I have no idea.
Samus: you don't have anything in your database?
Kushala: your... *master* has not told you anything?
OS: Nope, he said *Those things are dangerous, the less you know the better*.
Tico: hmmm... I don't know what can be those models... Any ideas?
*A silver circle appears in Sam's eyes as he looks at the models.*
Hmm. Curiouser and curiosuer. I wonder if this is what Hate wants. These things seem to be contructed of a self repairing alloy. Living Metal. Fascinating.
*The circles vanish.*
What I could make with such a material. Why I could reinforce...
*Sam clears his throat.*
I'm getting ahead of myself. Sorry about that.
(edited by Sam)
Star listened into the quick explanation as much as she could.
"It's pretty much the same principal of what I use to make my robots bodys and inner workings... though the manipulatable bit reminds me of my newest weapon...has this guy's been copying me, or have I been copying him!? Wait, no, these prototypes don't seem like something I'd make... unless I was very drunk. Wait, am I the master?...nah, couldn't be."
Eh, I've experimented with living metal. Actually did it yesterday to great success. I'm really hoping to see this master now so we can compare notes!
Mariko was surprised with the out burst of talking but she smiled when she saw that the robot would answer her question. Finally!
So the lab is built in cave because it uses the energy of the world to power it?! That sounds amazing! How does it do that? Can it use other things to power it? Can it make magic back into the energy of the world? What does the energy of the world even look like? How did your master think of that??
(edited by Mariko_Kureji)
The orb looked at Mariko
OS: 1) yes. 2) as I explained before. 3) It could, but this one is the most effective. 4) just it case my master prepared it, so yes it can. 5) is like magic liquid, nothing interesting at all. 6) he said: *I already did that like 9 times... I don't mind to do it once more...* and please, questions one by one.
Kushala: I want to know... What is the most important thing of this lab?
OS: the most important thing?
Selena: what your master most apreciates
OS: uhm... Maybe the gravitational machine... The magic generator... Oh! I remember! My master said something about a doll, but I don't know where it is.
Samus: a doll?
OS: he made a doll of a person, one day I saw it, however the master deleted that memory and how I reached that place.
Tico: why a doll?
OS: I don't know, but I think... When he was with that doll... I felt a lot of symptoms of happiness.
Selena: I think we shouldn't touch it, if that doll means that much for him...
Leo: what else is important for him?
OS: maybe the multiverse portal he created.
Kushala: a portal? Where?
OS: Fooooollow me!
The drawing of a wall changed its collour when OS went to it, the group followed him but Leo stopped for a second before leaving.
Leo: he said the master repeated the same magic process for this lab 9 times before... Do you think that is related to those models? If that... Where is the number nine? Because there are only 8 models here...
With that said Leo went inside the portal.
Multiverse... portal? Heh. I'm a good thirty years ahead of this guy then. Well, may as well go and see what all this fuss is about. Come along, peoples. Science awaits.
*Sam chuckles before smirking and heading through the portal.*
A doll? Okay, the similarities between this master and me are starting to get really creepy. I swear, if the man made a space ship with hyperdrive, dual laser cannons, and enough armor and shielding to survive multiple nukes at once, this master may as well be a clone of me! Seriously, they're running all around my castle basement, one of them may have gotten loose and that could be bad.
Star goes on her usual rambling as she walks through the portal.
Mariko stopped to look around, taking a time to stare at the 8 models. She couldn't think of anything to say, just a odd feeling at the back of her neck. She followed Star through the portal.
Everyone went into the wall and they appared on another room, they saw that the big pillar of energy from the first room was falling directly into some kind of machine that was formed by a small arc enough for a person to go inside it, they also saw that most of the cords were going directly to that arc.
OS: looks like is still recharging.
Leo: how... It works?
Suddenly Thanatos appeated and somehow he grabbed OS
Thanatos: SLOW... because I don't feel like hearing a rushed explanation, calm down and explain...
Thanatos released OS, he then continued his explanation.
OS: this machine processes the energy that is comming from the cords, it storages it inside in order to be unleashed to fracture time and space, so then the person who goes into the portal appears in the global coordinates he has put.
Samus: what? Can you explain that?
OS: the global coordinates are a combination of three coordinates: Time, Space, and world, depending on what you have put you can go into a world or another and is not putting 30Â°4', is not that, you must put a low number, ussually at 10^-30 to make it work.
Tico: that doesn't look that hard... Even I could br able to create something like this...
???: In that case do it, I want to see how much time you need to fuck it and go down with all the team.
OS flew towards a man that suddenly appeared behind the group, he was covered by a lab coat and a mask that was covering all his body, he looked at group and began to talk.
Master: who are you and why are you here?
Leo: we are here because we are looking for someone.
Master: I don't know her.
Tico: I'VE NOT SAID ANYTHING!
Selena: and still he knows who you were about to describe.
Selena: he has said *she* so he knows we are looking for Hate, how do you...
Master: shut up, because I'm the one who makes the questions here.
Selena didn't said anything more, she knew it was better to not annoy him the Master turned to OS and moved his head as a signal.
Master: OS, inform.
OS: they have come recently from a hole in the wall, the one that strange creature did that day. I've been showing them the lab and I've been talking with them.
Master: is that all?
OS: of course.
Kushala: that hole... Some kind of golden creature did it?
OS: yes! How do you know it?
Kushala: I actually repeled him.
OS: really? Thanks!
Master: *ejem* you can talk about it later.
Samus: we would like to know what is this place.
Master: Is something you will be askong yourself the rest of your life, leave my laboratory, now.
Leo: I'm sure Hate will come here soon, if...
Master: if she comes I will kill her, end of the discussion.
Corrin: you don...
Master: you don't get how angry and annoyed I'm to see a few strangers in my lab?
Kushala: excuse me human, but being rude is not going to help, if you answer us we will leave peacefully, however if you feep talking and acting that way we will be forced to do something more aggressive.
Master: alright, answer me this question, WHY should I help a few strangers that have gone into my lab and touched things without my persmission?
OS: wait... You didn't invited them?
Master: What do you think...?
OS: uh... Wait... Did the master invite you?
Leo invited us. Kushala invited him. Blame those two. But that's beside the point. Where's this portal OS told us about? I'm curious to see how it matches up to my own.
Uhh...we just kinda saw the hole, thought it would be worth an investigation, so...sorry for going through your stuff even though I assume that gold thing was your fault and you should have repaired the wall if you wanted to keep people out...just saying.
Mariko began to reach for her hammer, slowly gaining distance between them. He's pushing the wrong buttons, but we might need his help... I can't kill him. Not now or yet.
He basically invited us by making his lab in this really easy to walk into cave! No warning signs or anything he really did kinda just welcome us.
OS: I... I see...
Master: OS, engage the security protocol and kill them, I have things to do so I leave you in charge.
OS: understood master.
The master turned back and began to walk away, meanwhile the drawings on the ground began to get filled with magic and they began to create the magical beings they represented.
OS: I'm sorry for this but I will obbey the Master.
Leo: Can't we talk this?
OS: if my Master wants you dead, I will kill you.
Suddenly from the ground, a hole opened and a strange armor appeared from it, OS flew into that armor, the eyes of the armor began to shine with a smiliar colour that OS and it began to walk towards the group.
Leo: a group should deal with the enemies while other group deals with OS.
Selena: we'll do this: Kushala, Leo, Samus, Thanatos and I will deal with the drawings. Corrin, Star, Sam, Mono and Mariko you will defeat OS, when you do it well open a way to leave.
Samus: got it.
Leo: I have a bad feeling about this.
Thanatos: try to talk to him.
Corrin: what do you mean?
Thanatos: I feel we can persuade him to let us leave, try it.
Corrin: got it.
While a group went to deal with the magical beings, the other group ran to face OS.
Objetive: Persuade or defeat OS.
(To persuade OS you can use the discord channel or by posting here)
Actually, we could just leave right now through the portal. I mean, he didn't close it. But fine, whatever, I love destroying property when I need to, too bad it had to be when I don't want to, but oh well, thems the breaks! Heartbeat System, Synchronize!
Two swords suddenly come out of Star's jacket and fly into her hands while her new equipment starts glowing red.
Still, I do think there is a chance we could just leave and plug the hole up with something so we could never get back in. I mean, this master guy just seems to want us gone and thinks the easiest way is to kill us. Too bad for him, I'm immortal! I'll just come back to life every time I die! Hahahahahahahahaha! But no seriously, I like my idea of just leaving and not coming back.
*Sam rolls his eyes before leaning on his cane, smirking*
You didn't even answer my question? How very lame. I guess his work is nothing after all. Oh well. I'd prefer not to fight if I can avoid it. If youe will allow it, I will ensure that all of the people present who intruded on your domain leave this place. Killing us will do nothing for you and if your master is like me, he'll think making a mess is such a pain to clean up. And if not... well, then you'll have shot first. Everything after that is your fault.
*Sam smirk widens slightly.*
I can't be held accountable for anything they do to you as I turn this place into an even bigger scrap heap. So what do you say, AI? It's your masters best interest to let us go. Minimalize damages and I'll even be nice and leave a little parting gift. It's a good deal. You really should take it.
I knew it! I should have swung when I thought so! AHH! I'm so stupid! I need to kill them or they'll hate me! Mariko slid behind Sam and began took out 2 red balloons. She blew air into them and floated them towards OS.
We don't have to do this OS! You can help is convince your master!
Monoarty wakes up to find himself in a fight. He looks around frightened. He grabs his gun out ready to fight.
Monoarty: What did you guys do while I was out?!
Corrin: Star has a point, however, I think we can try to talk with that master... Maybe there is a way to approach him, for now let's see of we can persuade OS.
OS: this part of the lab is done with a material that regenerates itself, so I don't have to worry about destroying it, it will regenerate itself with the time. I'm sorry guys but the orders of my master are sacred and I'll follow them
OS sound very determined, however there is still a part of him that thinks different.
The armor's left arm turned into a gun that quckly shoot the two balloons, he continued walking towards the group, he was starting to get closer and he will attack the group soon.
Monoarty began thinking. He snaps his fingers. He heads over to star and started whispering something to her.
Monoarty: to Star I have a plan. You guys try and distract OS while I try and go after the master. I'm going to try and capture him. If I can't catch up with him, I'll just shoot one of his kneecaps and get him.
Yeah, your lab is made of regenerating metal. Magnetic, regenerating metal at that. But what about all this lovely machinary. Surely not EVERYTHING is made of regenerating metal. And even if it is... well, I'm sure a robot must know what happens when a magnet interacts with technology. Let me just remind you it's not a pretty sight. And guess what new device I just so happen to be testing today.
*Sam raises his metal arm. A strange energy emits from it, causing a chunk of the plating on the lab's wall to fly out a orbit around his hand. Sam watches the piece of metal with a curious gaze*
So, as I said. Stand down. We don't want to fight you. We'll leave of our own accord. But if you insist of fighting, know you are but a machine. You follow the rules of all others. Power source and weakness to strong magnetic surges included.
Maiko's balloons would explode into flames when OS shot them. She gripped her hammer, preparing two green balloons. I don't want to do this... maybe if we can just weaken him enough to where he'll be forced to listen? I don't know... Mariko floated the balloons over to OS.
(edited by Mariko_Kureji)
After noticing anyone was attacking, OS began to stop and he left the armor.
OS: so... You are not going to attack me?
Corrin: we can talk things, there is no need to attack us this way.
OS: hmmmmm... Alright... You win.
Suddenly the magical beings began to disappear, moments later everyone gathered around OS.
Leo: OS, is your master always like this?
OS: Uh... As far as I know... He has been always a solitary person.
Selena: can I ask him something?
OS: sorry but he is now in a place even I can't go.
Samus: we know he is hearing us now.
OS: uh... He is not...
Selena interrupted OS and stepped ahead from the others.
Selena: I felt it... You are suffering because you lost someone, I know it hurts... We all know that feel because we have lost people we really cared about.
Leo: I got forced to kill my own father... And even to kill a brother...
Corrin: I lost my mother in front of me.
Samus: I lost my parents, they sacrified for me.
Kushala: I lost some of my hatchlings.
Selena: I got forced to kill someone I really cared about...
Tico: Me anyone.
Thanatos: me neither.
Thanatos: what? I' m not going to lie.
Tico: me neither, but if you want I can say yes!!!!
Suddenly Tico picked up a colossal hammer and she attacked Leo who managed to dodge it with a jump.
Leo: TICO NOT NOW!
Samus: Is amazing how this escalated that quickly...
Corrin: you will get used to it...
Kushala: I should clean my wings...
Selena: are you happy?
Selena: I understand you want to say the truth... But can't you atleast...
And the scene got ruined and turned into a stupid one, OS carefully watched it, but then a voice echoed in the room and everyone stopped.
Master: you remaind me to a few persons I knew time ago, they were all crazy as fuck, but still... I think I was able to consider them my family...
Selena: we just want to talk, please.
Master: Sigh, alright then, come.
One of the drawings in the wall changed into form of an octagon and the portal was now showing the other side, the group saw the master there, he was working at some kind of doll, it was going to be a doll of a person but his face was not done yet, looking the body you were able to tell it was a man. After seeing that, everyone went inside the portal, even OS.
Selena: a friend?
Master: my best one... At least he was...
Thanatos: sorry for that.
Master: he got forced to deal with a hard destiny... He was being very responsible with his actions, it surprised me seeing him dealing with that destiny, but at the end...
Samus: I see... I know the feel, someone close to me sacrificed for me.
Corrin: I see... A close friend you always talk to...
Leo: a... close friend... You always talk to...
Kushala: hmmm... How was that human called?
Master: I don't remember his name... I'm making this doll before I forget his face.
OS: oh Master...
Selena: Leo...? What's wrong?
Everyone looked at Leo, who was lost in thoughts.
Leo: someone... You always talk to...
Suddenly Leo opened his eyes in surpirse, he carried a hand to his head to ask himself how he didn't noticed that fact before, Leo's face turned to an angry one has he turned to Sam.
Leo: Sam... I just noticed... You have not talked with Mayu for a long time... and knowing you are always together, Is very strange the fact have not even mentioned her this whole time... I'll ask it just one time... Who are you?
Slowly everyone turned to Sam, they way Leo talked... It looked like he was being serious.
*Sam sighed, releasing the piece of wall, letting it crash to the ground. He leant forward on his cane*
You jump to conclusions to much. Mayu is away on a mission alongside Gin and a few others. A friend of ours known as Amadeus called in an SOS. He needed urgent help. I was gonna go, but then I found out you knew where Raal was from a few cameras and crap I set up in your castle.
I abandoned my mission and sent her in my place. Mayu has the only other mind I trust but my own, so I knew she could stand in for me. I would have brought it up earlier had I thought you'd be so antsy about it. Where you going with this?
Leo looked at Sam for a second, is obvious is not going to be that easy... He needs to find a hole in his argument...
Leo: "He says he is Sam... But I'm sure that is a lie... I must use a fact that Sam knows but he don't... But what... What can I use... Wait... Maybe... I think I know how to catch you."
Well Sam, in that case... Can you say me what do you think about the name Addalme?
Everyone remained silent, they all looked at Leo and Sam, except for Kushala who was cleaning her wings.
*Sam was silent for a second before smirking.*
Hmm. Been a while since you brough that name up, eh? Hmm. I can't recall what he did exactly. Though I think he did something last year. A lot has happened, so it seems to have slipped my mind. I have a bad memory for things I think are unimportant, and seeing as that whole fiasco is over, it seems I replaces it with a few more recent ventures. Ha ha ha.
There it was... The name Addalme should have been a name that he would have remembered.
Leo: you are telling me... You don't remember the guy whose shadow tried to kill us? The guy who had a palace we had to destroy. I refuse to think you have forgotten the man that got possesed and he even killed me! No, Sam would never forget it so why don't you show your true self? Raal?
Everyone was sure now, it was impossible to forget that name, not after what happened with him... And with Lavos...
Leo: well, what do you have to say?
*Sam smirked. His cane starts to slacken and curl around his right arm. He laughs outloud as his forms shifts as Orochi removes a small disk, swallowing it. Raal takes a pair of glasses from his coat pocket and puts them on.*
Was my impression that good that it would take you THIS long to figure out I wasn't your good friend? I was told you were smart, Leo. She must have been mistaken.
*Machin Raal smriks, his cold gaze falling on the group. He bows theatrically.*
For those who don't know me, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Machin Raal, Genius scientist of the Thundarian Empire and the current strategist of the formless you know as Hate. The pleasure is all yours.
Monoarty looks Raal with a threatening gaze.
I hate people who hide their true selves. I consider them on the levels of robbers and murderers. If you can't show your true self, then don't show it at all!
Monoarty raises his gun, ready to fire on command.
Mariko stared at Sam as he turned to Raal. WHAT. Wait WHAT. She began to slowly and awkwardly back away from him. Since she didn't explode her balloons she made them float over to him just in case. Should I fight him? I mean I'm here to hit monsters, people, even AIs, I don't think I can handle this...
Everyone got surprised by the sudden appearance of Raal, Thanatos turned to the black armored warrior form and looked at Raal.
Thanatos: looks who is here...
Selena: is him?
Corrin: you know him?
Thanatos: He is Raal, he kidnapped Tiki to later use her to give Hate Naga's postiion, he is a very smart person that is always three steps ahead, so if you are going to fight him, be wise or you could lose a battle before even starting it.
Samus: if you are here that mean... They are here too?
Leo: well, you are the enemy of a friend of mine and not only that, you are going with a being that is our enemy too, don't think you are going to leave this place unharmed.
Everyone prepared to fight, but suddenly, OS began to talk.
OS: uh... Master... Someone is trying to open your portal...
OS: I can see a woman... She is typing in the controller...
Master: if she goes through that portal... It is going to be bad... Because it need a lot of time to recharge...
Selena: and I think you are not going to let us go, you are going to hold us here as long as you can... Right Raal?
Really, False god. You only think I'm 3 steps ahead. How disappointing. I'm at least 5 ahead of you.
*Raal glances over at OS and smirks*
Looks like she finally got here. Right on time. But your right. I can't let you through. However, I will allow you one chance, "prince" Leo. Run away from this responsibility you placed on yourself, like you have with all the others involving your country. Run away, take your friends with you and I'll let you all live. I swear it on my honour as a scientist.
*Raal folds his arms, Orochi grows in size and coils around him protectively.*
But if you don't, we shall have to fight. Not something I wish for, but I will have no other choice. So what will you do? Fight or flee?
Monoarty: Save the big talk if you actually beat us. To me, you seem like a cowardly egomaniac. If you are truly a threat like you are acting, don't hide in some...thing.
He grabs out a thing of rations and eats it.
Food Levels:  120% OVERLOAD WARNING!
Mariko begins to back away slowly. She looks at Selena and the Master.
Hey! What about one of you come with me while everyone else keeps him distracted?! We'll go to that woman trying to use the portal!
Leo was with his brynhildr, he was ready to fight against Raal, but for a second his expression changed, the way Raal said *Prince* made him think about it, suddenly Corrin place a hand over his shoulder, he looked at her and both nodded, Leo then felt more determined and looked at Raal.
Leo: I'm not going to run away, as I said before Raal, you are not going to leave this place unharmed.
Kushala: Snif snif... Yes... He smells strange...
Samus: I feel he is very dangerous, be carefull.
Corrin: Maybe if we distract him as Mariko said...
OS: I'll try to hold the portal a bit... But wow... She is very fast at typing...
Master: I'll be with OS, focus on him.
Selena and Thanatos didn't said anything they just prepared their weapons, Selena looked at Leo for an instant but her eyes went to Raal.
Leo: ready Raal? Because we are.
I don't believe you understand the gravity of this situation. No matter. I shan't allow any of you to leave this room as long as I remain here. I hope your prepared.
--Battle Start. Enemy Phase--
Because soon your going to wish you took me up on my offer. But first, I shall take care of the exits.
*Raal crouches down and places a hand to the ground. Suddenly, the room grows slightly warmer. Sparks launch from one surface to another. The energy in the room shifts.*
Electric attacks +10%
Earth attacks +5%
Gun attacks cause all combatants to take Medium Electric damage
If a Electric and a Earth element attack are used by the same side of the field on the same turn, cause all opposing combatants to take heavy almighty damage (Electrostatic Discharge)
Becomes a Factory Field if a Severe earth based attack is used
That should seal all points of escape. Now then. Let us see what yu can do. Activating Omega Protocals. Shield active. Strengthen Orochi. Bound field active.
*Raal clicks his glasses to his face and he glows faintly for a few seconds. Orochi shrinks inside and returns inside Raal's sleeve as Raal takes up combat positions, smirking.*
Raal's Passive: Electromagnetic Barrier (Reduces all damage taken by 10%. Grants #$@)?!$ status. Grants two moves per turn
Well, If your ready, come and get me.
Energy Charge (Changes field to a magnetised field)
Barrier Initialised (Activates Passive Skill)
OOC: I hope your ready for a raid boss. For this boss fight, I'm taking over as GM, with Addy's permission of course. I would have waited for Star, but seeing as she hasn't posted in 9 days, I think not doing that is justified. Other than that, if you could update with move element (fire/ice/lighting/etc) and Strength (light/medium/heavy/etc) just for convienience sake. I'll handle just health, so no need to worry about that. Other than that, enjoy.
Corrin: we must be carefull... I don't like that...
Tico: is hard to explain, as short explanation, be carefull with your attacks, don't use electric or earth attacks.
Kushala: oh well.
Kushala spat out a wind ball towards Raal that dealed heavy wind damage.
Meanwhile Corrin used her Yato to attack Raal and deal medium phys damage.
While Selena performed a somersault Thanatos used his Katana to send a dark slash against Raal (heavy dark damage), Selena landed behind Raal and slashed him two times (medium x2)
Leo used his frozen sword to and his scramble book to create copies of himself and attack Raal with them (light ice x4).
Samus ran towards Raal, she got a lot of speed and rmshe ran over him, she then used the energy to jump to her previous spot (heavy physical)
Monoarty: This electricity I'm feeling... Goddamn it, Mr. Dream! Monochrome would have been better for a situation like this!
Monoarty stands and looks at Raal. He rushes up to Raal, intending to Pistol Whip him.
Pistol Whip (Does medium physical damage 1-2 times)
(edited by Mono)
A man wearing a star-covered tophat and clothes spawns above and to the side of the fight. He summons a floating folding chair and a bottle of wine. He sits down in the chair with the bottle of wine in hand.
Uhuhuhuhuhu! Time to see how Monoarty deals in a fight that is against him. Ohohohohoho!
Mr. Dream summons a glass to pour the wine in, then throws the glass away and starts chugging the bottle of wine.
I don't have time for this! I need to beat him quickly! Mariko snapped her fingers exploding the two balloons she had floating near Raal which burst a deadly gust of gale (moderate wind damage over a 3 meter radius in all directions)
(edited by Mariko_Kureji)
*All of the attacks strike Raal almost similtainiously, creating a cloud of smoke. As the smoke fades, Raal chuckles. The glow around him returns, just fading out as the shield fades.*
Is that all you can do? Such weak attacks won't even dent me.
-Tutorial: Stat increases and Decreases-
Every attack strength has a certain percentage of damage it does. Weak is 5%, medium is 10% and so on. Attack buffs add 5% to this count. Defence buffs take away 5%. If your attack or defence are reduced, the opposite is true. For example, Raal's passive adds a 10% damage resistance. As such, any attack that would normally do 10% is reduced to doing no damage at all.
Now then. My turn.
*Raal thrusts his arm forward, sending Orochi towards Corrin. If it connects, it would bite into her skin, injecting her with a poison that would cause her to feel numb. Raal would then retract Orochi into his sleeve and, with a smirk, would extend both of this arms. From his sleeves, eight of Orochi's heads would fly out towards everyone. Any one caught by Orochi's attack would feel themselfs slowly becoming much weaker.*
Numbing Orochi (Medium Physical Damage to one foe. Applies Numbing Toxin. Target: Corrin. Numbing Toxin reduces Defence by 1 stage)
Deathbringer Hydra (Medium Physical damage to all foes. Applies Deathbringer Toxin. Deathbringer Toxin applies DOOM ailement)
-Tutorial: DOOM ailment
DOOM ailment will reduce targets HP to 0% 3 turns after they are hit. It can be removed with any ailment removing move.
Mariko would see the damage Raal inflicted on her teammates by touching them with his arm. I don't have anything to cure that! I hope someone else can do it, I need to keep my distance. Mariko grabbed two red balloons and inflated them. She floated them over to Raal before snapping her fingers.
(moderate flame damage over a 3 meter radius in all directions.)
Monoarty clenches his fist and jumps high into the air. A loud boom could be heard from Monoarty's direction. He opens his hand and stretches it out into the sky almost like he is trying to grab something.
Monoarty: (in a loud and booming voice) I CALL UPON THE POWERS OF MY BROTHER MONOCHROME, THE BROTHER WHO FOUGHT AND KILLED THE LORD OF DARKNESS DRACULA AND THE OWNER OF THE RENOWN VAMPIRE KILLER WHIP! BLESS YOUR POWERS ONTO ME AS I WILL IN THE FUTURE!
A huge beam of light signs upon Monoarty. His clothes turned from cowboy garbs to gothic medieval armor, and on his open hand sits an identical version of the Vampire Killer. He lands back on the ground.
Monoarty: Don't call me or my attacks weak, you unholy demon!
Monoarty rushes up to the heads and Raal to attack them with the Vampire Killer.
Orochi managed go bite her before she is able to react and push Orochi away.
Leo: are you alright?
Corrin: yes, it hurts anyways...
Meanwhile, Selena was looking at her weapons, she dropped them and made a signal to Thanatos.
Selena: you know what to do.
Thanatos: Long time since we did this.
Selena: yeah... but I need power to pierce his defenses.
Thanatos: alright then...
Thanatos turned into a foggy silhouette and he naied his katana on the ground, then he went inside Selena, the moment he did it the mark on Selena's left hand back began to shine.
Selena picked up the katana and she took it out from the ground, the katana got covered with dark fire that was leaving a little track of dark fire after each move.
Selena: I'm ready now...
(Thanatos has left the battle, but now Selena has regeneration and heals status ailments after a turn, she is also stronger now, she is able to cast stronger skills now and magic.)
Selena dashed towards Raal, she slashed him with a strong attack that bursted in dark flames dealing massive phys/fire damage).
Corrin focused and healed the poison of Mono while Leo removed it from Mariko.
Samus focused and she felt better while renovated energies flowed through her body.
Kushala flew towards Raal and smashed him with her body, dealing heavy phys damage.
Tico: (he is planning something... For now I'll analyze him and see what I can get.
*Raal shifts hsi body to the side slightly, avoiding Monoarty's attack by a hair. Mariko's explosions don't even make him flinch. However, Kushala and Selena's joint attack seems to do at least something, even if that something is just pushing him back a few feet. Raal smirks, pressing his glasses up his nose part way.*
Leo: 90% DOOM: 2 turns remaining
Samus: 90% DOOM: 2 turns remaining
Kushala: 90% DOOM: 2 turns remaining
Corrin: 75% DOOM: 2 turns remaining (0/-1)
Well, it seems your at least giving some bug bites to be slightly more annoying than a light breeze. Slow claps to you. Now then, let's see how you deal with this.
*Raal cracks his neck before launching the eight Orochi heads at everyone once more. Unlike before, any one hit wouldn't feel any more like they were dying. Instead the muscles in their arms would start to feel like they were burning. After the heads return to their place in Raal's sleeve, Raal would smirk before raising his hand. Around the room, pieces of the walls would break off and float there for a second before Raal lowers his arms, causing the pieces to fly towards the group. The pieces would send electric currents between eachother, other pieces lashing out arund the room. Raal is caught in the storm but seems to remain unharmed.*
Weakening Hydra (Medium physical damage to all foes. Applies Weakening Toxin. Weakening Toxin lowers attack by one stage)
Magnum Force ( Heavy gun damage to all foes)
Field Effect (Medium electric damage to everyone)
Thanatos: are you alright?
Selena: I'm fine, just focus on support.
Tico: wait... Thanatos can heal... Why don't you...
Thanatos: my healing powers mostly works in Selena, I don't feel like healing you anyways.
Tico: dude... Thanks...
Thanatos: there is no need to thank me.
Leo: we'll focus on healing, focus on attack.
Corrin: don't worry about us.
Samus: don't push yourself, we need you alive.
With that said Samus turned into a morphball and she used her turbo to go directly towars Raal and hit him dealing heavy phys damage.
Meanwhile, Kushala charged her wind and spat out a powerfull wind ball that dealed heavy wind damage to Raal.
Selena slashed the ground with her katana and sent a track of flames that came from the ground and went towards Raal dealing severe dark/fire damage.
Leo healed Kushala's poison while Corrin healed Leo.
What the hell are those things??
Mariko gripped her hammer and began swinging it at any Orochi heads that came at her. (Each swing deals heavy physical damage if it connects.
I don't know but this guy won't go down!
Monoarty charges again to the heads and Raai to try and attack them with the whip.
Vampire Killer Attack (Medium Physical Damage with a 5% chance of extra Holy Damage.)
*Raal is struck by everyones attacks almost at the same time. However, he simply smirks, lauging.*
Is that truly all you can do? How pathetic. What's the matter? Feeling a little under the weather.
*The Orochi head heading at Mariko would get hit on the head, letting out a robotic hiss in annoyance before it returns to Raal's sleeve*
Monoarty: 55% (-1/0)
Leo: 55% (-1/0)
Samus: 55% DOOM: 1 turns remaining (-1/0)
Kushala: 55% (-1/0)
Corrin: 40% DOOM: 1 turns remaining (-1/-1)
Selena: 55% (-1/0)
*Raal would smirk before calling on Orochi. It would bite Raal's arm, injecting some sort of concotion into him before burying itself into the ground. The ground around the group would rumble before Orochi's massive form would rush from the ground, slamming any who wasn't aware enough to move out of the way before returning below the ground, which would repair itself due to the properties of the lab.*
Gamma Formula (Raises all stats by 1 stage and heals 10%)
Jormungandr (Severe Physical Damage to all)
Monoarty: Gah! ...I have an idea!
Monoarty rushes over to where the snake was and plants 5 vials of Holy Water. He rushes back.
Monoarty: Stand back!
Holy Water (Sub-Weapon that causes a wave of Holy Fire to attack all near it that deals heavy fire/holy damage, takes 1 heart for each vial.)
HEARTS : 5/10
Selena put her katana in a defensive posture to avoid as much damage as she can.
Thanatos: are you alright?
Selena: yes, I can still fight.
Thanatos: that's my girl.
While Leo healed Corrin's poison she healed Samus poison.
Leo: is nothing.
Kushala: do you want me to heal?
Tico: You can't heal!
Kushala: I can, look.
Kushala flapped her wings and the light breeze was helping the group to recover like a media skill.
Samus: she can after all.
Tico: now everyone can heal... I CAN DO THAT TOO!
Samus: do it then.
Tico: busy with analysis.
Samus: so you can't.
While Tico was looking for weapons to stab Samus, Samus used her grapple beam to pick up Raal and smash him into a wall and later into the ground dealing heavy phys damage.
Tico: ok guys his shield protects him from weak attacks, hit with strong hits and he is done.
Selena: Just as I thought.
Selena prepared her katana, she jumped and went directly to Raal attacking him with a burst of dark flames that dealed severe phys/dark damage.
Mariko jumped out of the way when she felt the ground rumbling, dodging the Orochi by a few inches. She stayed low in case anything else flew at her before seeing what came out.
WOAH! I don't get paid for this, but this is what I work for!
Mariko leaped towards the Orochi, swinging her hammer directly towards its head.
*Raal is knocked into the wall after being hit by the other attacks. However, as the dust settles, Raal just brushes off his coat before walking over to his previous position.*
Didn't even feel it. Are you sure your up to this? If you can't even beat me, then what hopes do you have of beating Hate? Legitimate question, by the by. If you survive this next blow, I wish to learn the answer.
Raal: 80% (1/1)
Monoarty: 25% (-1/0)
Leo: 25% (-1/0)
Samus: 25% (-1/0)
Kushala: 25% (-1/0)
Corrin: 5% (-1/-1)
Selena: 25% (-1/0)
*Three heads fly out of Orochi's sleeve. Two of them fly at Leo and Mariko. If they are hit, they would feel their strength become weaker and their bodies feeling more exhausted. The last heads at the weakened Corrin, it's fangs dripping with poison*
Good theory, AI. But my resistances go further than my barrier now. At this point I doubt even your stongest attacks can even scratch me. If you can't even deal with a simple toxin wielding opponent, how will you deal with Hate's assault? How hopeless.
Crippling Caedecus ( Medium physical damage to 2 random foes. Lowers attack and defence by 1 stage to those hit. Targets: Mariko and Leo.)
Venom Orochi (Medium physical damage to 1 foe. Applies POISON. Target: Corrin)
Those under the effects of POISON status will take 5% of their HP every turn
Leo: you think that? Don't think bad, we've just started, Corrin, coulf you?
Corrin used Elise's stick, healing everyone and applying heat riser to the group.
Leo: I think you've forgotten a detail, we beated Hate before, and we will do it again.
Kushala began to charge her winds, while Leo began to charge with his brynhildr opened, Samus went ahead and prepared to protect then in case Raal could try to attack them.
Selena ran towards Raal, she attacked with two slashes, one aimed to Raal's arms and another to his chest in order to deal medium phys damage and lower his attack and defense.
Monoarty goes into a panic and starts looking around for lights and breaking them in order to gain Hearts and/or a new sub-weapon.
Heart Search (Breaks a light source allowing for a 30% chance of no hearts. 20% chance of 1 heart, 20% of 5 hearts, and a 30% chance of a new sub-weapon.)
Subweapon Search (Breaks a light source for a 30% chance of a new sub-weapon. Sub-weapons are 20% Dagger(s), 20% Axe(s), 10% Pocket Watch, 10% Boomerang Cross, 20% Magic Book, or 20% Holy Water(s).
Mariko grit her teeth, she steadied her hammer, taking a deep breath before swinging her hammer at the head that flew towards her with all her strength
(Heavy physical damage to where the hammer connects)
Maybe let us through and we'll show you how we will handle Hate! Whoever that is!
*Raal watches as everyone sets up something and Mariko bats away the Orochi head, frowning. He barely even*
So you healed. I do hope you don't hink that will save you?
Mariko: 100% (1/1)
Monoarty: 100% (0/1)
Leo: 100% (-1/0)
Samus: 100% (1/1)
Kushala: 100% (1/1)
Corrin: 95% POISON
Selena: 100% (1/1)
*Once again, Raal would have Orochi inject him with a strange concotion, strengthening him. He would then fire the heads of Orochi as at everyone once more. Those hit by the attack would feel the muscles in their arms start to burn*
Gamma Formula (Raises all stats by 1 stage and heals 10%)
Weakening Hydra (Medium physical damage to all foes. Applies Weakening Toxin. Weakening Toxin lowers attack by one stage)
From the lights, Monoarty got 2 hearts, and a Boomerang Cross. Monoarty throws a Boomerang Cross at the heads.
Cross Throw: (throws a big metal cross at an enemy dealing heavy physical and holy damage. Comes back to thrower after the attack. Costs 1 Heart)
Mariko reeled her hammer back and attacks all enemies near her
(Still, dealing heavy damage to everything it connects with)
Selena: I got it.
Thanatos: are you sure?
Selena: I have to wait for the right moment... ... ... !
Selena dashed towards Raal at the speed of light the moment Orochi healed him, she aimed towards OrochiÂ´s head stabbing him and Raal in the procees.
Selena: IÂ´m not done, enjoy.
The katana bursted into flames and damaged both Raal and Orochi, if she is succes both will get severe fire damage and Orochi wonÂ´t be able to heal Raal again.
Corrin used her healing stick to remove the posion from herself, meanwhile, Leo and Kushala were ready, however they were waiting for SamusÂ´ signal.
Samus: scan complete, aim to the marked spots and you will deal major damage.
Leo: got it, Kushala, go ahead if you want.
Kushala: ok human... grrrrrRRRRRRRRRR...
Kushala remained in the air, she closed her eyes while charging her winds, a moment later she opened her eyes that shined for an instant and she at the speed of light flew around Raal creating a colossal tornado over him, she then went inside it and put her wings close to her body to moments later extend them and make the tornado even bigger and more violent, it would deal a collossal wind damage to Raal.
when the tornado faded, Leo was ready and he took out a little light from the Brynhildr, he sent it towards Raal and the light exploded surrounding Raal on a pilar of light that dealed a colossal light damage.
both attacks from Kushala and Leo hit in vital spots thanks to Samus instruccions.
* Although he is able to evade Selena, he is put into the perfect position for Leo and Kushala's attacks. Raal growls as he is struck by the powerful blows from the two, knocking him back. As he recovers from those staggering blows, Mariko's spin attack and *
You are all aggravating me. But I suppose that is to be expected.
Mariko: 95% (0/1)
Monoarty: 95% (-1/1)
Leo: 90% (-2/0)
Samus: 95% (0/1)
Kushala: 95% (0/1)
Corrin: 85% (-1/0)
Selena: 95% (0/1)
*With a hmph, Raal calls upon Orochi. The mechanical snake grows in size and wraps itself around the Thundarian scientist, leaving only his red, snake like eyes peering from the shadows beneath the coils in a sight that would look familiar to Thanatos from their meeting before. And from the darkness, he begins to talk, addressing everyone individually.*
Why is it that you all fight? Mariko, Monoarty. This matter doesn't concern you. You gain nor lose anything in this fruitless endeavor. You fight for those you know nothing about. There's not point in you continuing this battle. You put your lives on the line and for what? A dagger in the back?
Corrin, do you truly think that Selena has your best interests at heart? She doesn't care whether or not Hate kills you or razes your kingdom to the ground like Selena knows she has to many others. Your kingdom is in no danger, so why put an unnessasary target on the back of those you care so dearly for?
Kushala, why do you fight? There's no point in it all. There's no threat to the natural balance you thrive for, nor to your territory or your kin. So, why bother trying to defend those of a kind you know have betrayed your kindness and will do so again. As is human nature.
And Leo. Poor, naive Prince Leo. You would so readily leave your own people starving in the streets to try and defy the very person who created you. You could solve the issue of your nations food shortages in a week. I bet less if you rally put some effort into it. But no. You are here, a traitor to your kind and your family.
So how's about it? Put down your arms and put this matter behind you. Selena has not your interests at heart. She couldn't give a damn whether or not you live or you die and in the end, if the going turns against her, she will just abandon you to rot like she has so many other chosen "champions" of her cause. I give you my word you will be spared, able to return to your lives and live in peace for the rest of your days without Hate interfering. So. What is your choice?
*Raal's words sound strangely compelling. What will you do? Give up or continue the fight?*
Quetzalcoatl (All damage taken for 1 turn is nullified)
Wait (No action Taken)
Monoarty: ... Allowing us to live? Heh. If I was my younger self, I would gladly take up that offer. However, the last time I accepted that kind of offer, A god was turned me into a book, and I was stuck as one for close to 1000 years. After an experience like that, do you think I'm going to accept that kind of offer anymore?
Monoarty starts to resonate a lot of heat, and his pupils become bright red. He smirks.
Tico: the very person... who created you... he meant... he just meant...
Selena: is not the moment, later we talk about it.
Leo looked at Selena who nodded at him with a smile, which made him feel better.
Corrin walked a step ahead and she began to talk.
Corrin: Knowing how Hate is do you expect me to believe that!? We didnÂ´t do anything bad and she appeared in our lifes. My kingdom is not in danger!? is that a joke!? Everything is in danger as long as this woman is around, just look at what she has done to Ylisse! She has killed all the hopes and dreams of that people because she just wanted to create more hate, you help her and you even dare to say Selena doesnÂ´t care about us!? I trust her an infinite number of times more than you!
When she finished Samus walked next to her.
Samus: IÂ´m surprised we are gone from just "insect bites" to "you are aggravating me" and suddenly you begin to talk us to make us leave, I find it pretty pathetic, I can see you are starting to get tired while we still have a lot of energy. Is true, I have not actual reasons to go with them, however I feel that "Hate" is very dangerous, something that has revived my worst enemy, if you think that little speech is going to scare me you are wrong.
Kushala was the next one.
Kushala: not a threat for my territory? She came to my territory and killed three of my hatchlings, the moment she did that she became my worst enemy, I wonÂ´t rest until IÂ´ve taken out the head of her body just like she did with my dear hatchlings. I wonÂ´t believe someone who has tried to kill me and my friends, and if I recall correctly, they have never betrayed me, they have always believed in me, and IÂ´ll do the same, my instinct is telling me that too, so there is nothing for me to be afraid about.
Then Leo walked with the others.
Leo: Yes Raal... Hate... she is my mother, the woman who created me, that fact wonÂ´t change, no mather what I do. However, there is something I can change, and itÂ´s the future, I did it with Lavos when he tried to destroy everything, you know why I did it? Because my friends and family were with me, and this moment is no different from the last one, together, my family and I will beat Hate once more, and this time weÂ´ll do it right. If you think IÂ´m just talking by talking, remember that my brothers are in Nohr protecting it while IÂ´m here fighting what is my strongest adversary. I have a strong reason to fight, and you wonÂ´t make me flinch.
Tico appeared from behind waving at Raal with cheerful smile.
Tico: do you know how bored could I be without them!? So IÂ´ll make sure nothing bad happens to them, you know, you get to love your family after all.
Selena calmly walked towards Raal and she stopped just in front of him, she looked at him for a few seconds with a serious expression, then she gave him a smile.
Selena: you have courage to say if IÂ´m worth to trust? Do you even know what IÂ´ve done to earn their confidence? IÂ´ve said the truth, is true they donÂ´t know everything about me, however as I told them, when the time comes IÂ´ll tell them everything. May I ask if you trust Hate? Do you even think you are something to her? You are nothing more than a toy, a toy she is using just because she is bored and she has realized there is a group of people that can confront her. Raal, you are very smart, just think about it, do you really think she has told you the whole truth? Allow me to say she has not done nothing more than lie to you, lie, after lie, after lie, but if you want her to lie you go ahead, let her lie to you until she is done with all of you and she erases you from the existence.
Thanatos: If I can say, you are very intelligent, I wouldnÂ´t mind to play some intellectual game with you, I could find a proper adversary to my skills.
Tico: what about us!?
Thanatos: hahaha, no.
Tico: EXCUSE ME!? IÂ´m very smart!
Thanatos: not to me.
Selena: EJEMâ€¦ well Raal, if thatÂ´s what you want, go ahead.
Selena turned back and she began to walk to the others.
Selena: let me tell youâ€¦ we will never give up.
And then everyone pointed their weapons towards Raal.
Selena: our answer is no, we wonÂ´t run away.
Too long for a single post.
Maiko felt her arms and legs begin to feel numb. She was struggling to take in air, but she smiled anyway, readying her hammer.
Yeah right! So what is it doesn't involve me! Like you would let me leave even if I didn't want to fight!
Mariko charged with her hammer, she adjusted her grips to be at the bottom of the handle, making a much stronger swing.
(Severe physical damage)
Mariko accidentelly stepped over an instant death cursed rock and died.
End of the universe.
It was your turn Ita xD.
*As Mariko's hammer bounces off Orochi's coils, Raal can be heard sighing.*
I don't even know why I try appealing to logic. Cerval knows that you humans will never agree with it. But at least I can say I tried, no matter how predictable you are,
Mariko: 95% (0/1)
Monoarty: 95% (-1/1)
Leo: 90% (-2/0)
Samus: 95% (0/1)
Kushala: 95% (0/1)
Corrin: 85% (-1/0)
Selena: 95% (0/1)
But it seems our time is coming to an end. And if you won't listen to reason, I shall make you bow to force. It's the only thing you annoying war mongering apes seem to listen to. So very well. I sahll bring you to your knees.
*Orochi uncoils from Raal as the man himself begins to float off the ground, lightning sparking from the ground beneath him up to the mans boots. He crimson eyes continue to glow as a pulse of energy eminates from Raal across the room, passing straight through the party. The party would be stagered by the sudden force, weakening under the gaze of the Serpent. It would seem Raal is serious now.*
Regeneration (Fully heals, applies a 100% damage mitigation for 1 turn and changes resistances)
Deus Maxima (Reduces all foes hp by half, applies INTERFERENCE status to everyone and activates Thundarian Domination)
Passive: Thundarian Domination- (Raises damage dealt by 10%. Resets all buffs to neutral for everyone. Grants PROTECT status. Grants 2 moves per turn.)

Tico: I can feel it.
Corrin: so this is how is going to be.
Leo: is all or nothing.
Samus: I'n ready for this.
Kushala: Let's go humans.
Thanatos: are you going to do that? Are you sure?
Thanatos: I'll charge then.
Leo opened his bolganone and began to charge.
Samus charges a mixed ray of light and darkness.
Kushala flapped her wings to leave her blurred marks, the winds around her began to turn black.
Corrin turned into a dragon and she prepared herself.
Selena remained there, holding the Katana while it began to get filled with dark flames.
Monoarty: ... EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!
Monoarty opens his mouth and puts the whip by it. A huge blast of hot air starts coming out of it causing the whip to start heating up.
Flaming Whip Charge:(Heats up whip to around 600 Celsius to attack at enemies. Causes severe physical/fire damage to those attacked. Takes a turn to charge)
Mariko staggered back from the sudden force, but she held on to her hammer, swinging it with the same angle of grip with a roar.
(Severe physical damage)
*Mariko's hammer would break a shield of electricity around Raal, leaving him open. He sneers as he observes the battlefield.*
Troublesome pests. I'll put you out of your misery.
*Raal grins, his cheeks opening up extending his mouth, revealing his full, snake like maw. With a cry, the lightning conducting around the room lashes out at the party. Raal then lands on the ground, causng Orochi to start uprooting the earth in a wave towards them. As the two attack collide, the room goes wild as electricity flies wildly and uncontrolably around the room, striking out at all but the one who agitated it.*
Gewitter (Light Electric damage to all foes X3)
Erdbeben (Heavy Earth Damage to all foes)
Field Effect: Electrostatic Discharge (Heavy Almighty damage to all foes)
Mariko smiled when she broke Raal's shield but it faded as she saw everything that happened next. She grit her teeth, deciding to dodge the electrostatic discharge in order to attempt to land a swing onto Raal before he could react. She jumped in the air in order to dodge before bringing her hammer down with all her weight with it.
(Severe physical damage)
Monoarty was quickly able to dodge Erdbeben by jumping up into the air and quickly was able to avoid the discharge but was unable to dodge Gewitter. The electricity struck him down to the ground. He grabbed the heated up with thanks to the exhaust from his parts. He starts rushing up to Raal to rush attack him with the burning whip.
Flaming Whip Charge:(Heats up whip to around 600 Celsius to attack at enemies. Causes severe physical/fire damage to those attacked. Takes a turn to charge)
Kushala stopped for a second and used her wings to protect herself from the attacks.
Corrin jumped away of the first attack, however she got hit by the next two attacks.
Samus got hit by the first attack, but she fully charged her beam and dashed to dodge the last two attacks.
Leo: managed to block the last attack.
Selena moved in the right moment to dodge the first attack, she performed a somersault to dodge the second attack, the first attack was about to hit her but Thanatos came out and embraced her.
Thanatos: I'm ready.
Thanatos turned into black fire which surrounded Selena, creating an armor of dark flames that protected her from the attack.
Tico: is your chance guys!
Leo used his now charged bolganone to send a wave of fireballs that dealled colossal fire damage.
Corrin, as dragon, prepared and shot a strong whilrpool towards Raal that dealed colossal water damage.
Kushala flew towards Raal while spinning in order to surround her with a tornado and went towards Raal dealing colossal wind damage.
Samus shot a mixed charged ray of light and darkness that created little rifts in the space the moment it connected, it dealed colossal light and darkness damage.
Selena prepared the katana that was filled with dark flames and she dashed at Raal at the speed of light to slash him with a vertical slash, she then went to his back and slashed it with an horizontal slash and in an instant later she performed a somersault over Raal and stabbed him in his chest, slowly she took it out but the dark fire remained inside Raal. Selena turned back and walked away. It looked like she was done but suddenly the flames exploded covering Raal in dark flames, this attack dealed heavy dark fire damage x3.
*Raal's eyes widen as the attacks fuse as one, colossal energy wave traveling straight at Raal. HE grits his teeth and shakes in anger.*
Impossible. How could humans summon something with such power? Why can I never predict what you emotionally charged, unreasonable, unlogical imbeciles? I am a genius and yet... It;s not. NGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHH!!!!
*With a last cry of anger and annoyance, Raal is consumed by the blast.*
Corrin hardly ran towards Leo, she picked him up from the ground and helped him to stand up.
Corrin: a-are you alright!?
Leo: Y-yes... I... I can still fight...
Corrin revived Leo.
Samus: I don't know what happens with him... I must recover.
Samus focused as she raised her cannon, moments later she got fully healed as renovated energies flowed through her, she fully healed herself.
Kushala: uh... Is he alright?
Selena: he lost it?
Thanatos: maybe, I can tell you he doesn't like to lose.
Kushala and Selena remained there, in guard for possible attacks from Raal, Selena looked at the others and then to the mark of the back of her left hand.
Selena: They are very tired...
Selena: Could someone heal them?
Thanatos: Tico can heal them.
Selena: why don't do it!?
Thanatos: I'm free to do what I want.
Selena: just do it...
Thanatos: as you wish.
Thanatos went out and cast recarn on Mono and Mariko, after that he went to the mark again.
Selena: yep, but stay on guard, we don't know what could be able to do Raal now.
Monoarty: THANKS FOR THE REVIVE.
Monoarty starts swinging his whip around himself to avoid any attacks from Raal.
You wouldn't happen to have a free slot for someone to join in this after this combat encounter is over would you?
You wouldn't happen to have a free slot for someone to join in this after this combat encounter is over would you?
Of course, I don't mind. I have a discord server where we can talk more or give you a summary if you need it, let me put a link to it.
Mariko's eyes slowly opened, she found herself on the floor with the taste of her own blood in her mouth.
Ugh... this is the worse headache I've ever had... wait what happened?
Mariko looked left and right hoping someone would answer as she stood up.
*From the smoke, Raal can be heard snickering. Then chuckling. And finally laughing wildly. As the smoke clears, Raal can be seens, hands stuck in his pockets. Behind him, Orochi in his Jormungandr form looms over him, sparking with eyes glowing red glaring at the party. Raal stops laughing, staring the party down with a victorious smirk on his face.*
Is that what you expected me to do? Have a breakdown over how I can't beat you? Tss sss sss. How predictable.
Raal: 1% PROTECT
But still. Was that last blow all you had? Orochi absorb that magical blast for me, so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Though Orochi may have benefited from it. Judging by the glow in his eyes, my LM Ultima device may have been reactivated from that. Heh. I suppose I have to thank you for that. Thanks to you, Orochi now has enough power to eradicate you where you stand, even the pretender. Heh. Fortunatly for you, I have express orders from Hate not to kill her son, which means I have to down the attack. Still.
*Orochi's mouth begins to glow.*
That doesn't mean I can't severly injure you.
*Orochi fires a beam of umbral energy at the group. The explosion what lift the group into the air before it charged through the ground at it's helpless prey. It's tail rises from the ground and swats the ground. From where they landed, the ground would cracks as a flaming cyclone blasted them in mid air, drawing in lighting from the stage as the energy field collapses from Orochi's attack. Singed and shocked and slashed and battered by the rubble flying around them, the group would crash back to the destroyed floor in a heap as Orochi shrinks and returns to Raal's sleeves. Raal looks on watching the destruction, smirking*
Quetzalcoatl Ouroboros(Reduces all opponents HP to 1%. Ends the battle)
-Special Move Activated. Battle End-
You are still alive after that right? I'd hate to accidentally not keep my deal with Hate.
OOC: I'll be handing this RP back to it's rightful owner now. See you if we ever battle again. Assuming Addy gives me the reigns back after this or we fight again. Thank you for sticking with me in this battle. Especially Isla who was very angry at me on Discord for some reason.
Everyone was on the ground, Leo was the only one who managed to stand up and walk towards Raal, he was looking at him with eyes filled with fury, he was with his his frozen sword in his hand, he got closer to Raal, grabbed him from his neck and prepared his sword.
Leo: is over... Raal... Now I will...
Leo was about to stab Raal in his chest but suddenly Selena grabbed his arm, she was very injured and she was also heavy breathing, but somehow she managed to reach Leo and stop him.
Selena: wait! You don't have to do this Leo, just think for a second what will happen if you kill him.
Leo: do you think I'm that idiot? Of course I know it, but do you know what will do Hate? She will wait until he is recovered? She will kill him and later revive him!
Selena: Leo, this is not about Hate, this is about you, this is affecting you more than you think, if you kill Raal... You could enter a vicious cicle... Do you really want to do it?
Leo: don't you understand? I will never hate her...
Selena: Leo, you are very unstable right now... You should take a deep breath and see this with perspective...
Leo: shut up! You don't know nothing!
Leo moved his arm and pushed Selena away who fell on the ground. Selena was about to stand up again but Leo pointed at her with his sword.
Leo: don't try it... Or I'll kill you too...
Leo threw Raal to the ground, Selena looked at Leo for a few seconds, a Leo who was killing her with the look.
Selena: so... This is the man you have become? You are very pathetic now... What are you going to do? Stab me too!? Go ahead!
Selena stood up and opened her arms.
Selena: go and stab me! What are you wai-
Suddenly Selena felt something in her stomach, she looked down and saw how Leo's frozen sword was piercing her, Selena stared at it for two seconds before looking again at Leo, this time with an enpty look.
Selena: congratulations Leo... You have lost against Raal... And against Hate...
Selena slowly stepped back, taking out the blade at the process, a blade that got covered in blood.
Selena slowly sat down on the ground and put a hand over her wound.
Leo walked towards Raal and this time he stabbed him in his chest, killing him, Raal's body began to disappear, starting from his legs and finishing for the head.
Leo remained on the spot, looking at Raal with an empty loon while he was disappearing.
Meanwhile, the master and OS were busy trying to stop Hate from using the portal.
Master: leave them, OS, is not our business.
OS: I see...
A bit later, everyone stood up and walked towards Leo and Selena asking themselves what had happened.
Monoarty: I'm glad that's- Gah.
Monoarty dropped to his knees.
Monoarty: Goddamn it. I let myself overheat and possibly burned out some of my parts. Curse my faulty android body.
I gotta either repair the parts or get some new ones.
Aren't we the little edge lord?
*From the shadows of the lab, Raal watched Leo with a smirk as he stabbed an illusion, muumbling to himself.*
Hallucinogenic poison. A simple trick, but effective in making a get away. Until we meet again, Prince Leo. I do hope you become a bit more interesting before we next meet.
*With that, Raal would replace the pin onto his coat and vanish, moving to reunite with Hate.*
OOC: This Deus Ex Machina bullshit comes to you with the permission of the GM and the fact I don't like dying without having a say in the way I die. Ciao for now.
A portal opens in the wall, and out trips a girl in a casual sweater, glasses, and a handheld spell book, as well as a small, shining stone
W-where am I?
She stands up and looks around, gathering her things she dropped on the floor when she fell.
Upon seeing everyone wounded, she opens her book to a page, reads it for a second before making a gesture with her free hand and casting a spell.
U-uhh.... Multi Sanitatem!?
(Everyone heals 10% HP)
I-is everyone alright?
(edited by Hanekawa_Himeko)
Mariko rubbed her eyes as she felt the pain from her wounds. She grabbed her hammer. Was it always this heavy? What happened with Leo? And wow Selena got way more hurt than me... Oh a new person! She's the one who must've healed me!
Hello! What's your name? Mine's Mariko! Did you heal us? Did you also heal yourself from your fall? Or does it work on everyone but you?
Himeko is startled by all the sudden questions and hides behind the small spellbook in her hands, but tries to answer the best she can once they stop
I didn't really need to... It was just a small fall...
And.. uhh... It works on me too...
Did... Did I stumble on something important?
(edited by Hanekawa_Himeko)
Thanks to Himeko's healing everyone felt better and healed.
Samus: what is going on here?
Selena: very funny stuff...
Kushala: oh good, in that case we should stop Hate now.
Master: too late...
Everyone turned at the master, he was looking at an OS who was shaking and acting strange.
Samus: he has an overflow of data?
Master: he is programed to handle terabytes of data per seconds, he shouldn't be like that...
Tico: But he can't handle time distorsions.
Leo: what do you mean?
Tico: the past has changed, someone has done something and the future or the "Now" is beginning to change.
Master: why is OS related?
Tico: maybe is you who is related to that.
OS: updating data... Updating Yggdrasil's database...
The master turned to OS like if he has just said something very important.
Master: what!? OS tell me about that, inform.
Kingdom of yggdrasil:
Status: destroyed by an unk01001000010101011111010101...
Status: In a temporal truce.
Habitants: aprox 12,7 M.
Latest news: Little accidents in the last festival of the full Moon, luckily anyone has been severelly injured.
End of report
Leo: is that place important for you?
Master: it is... Very...
And then, when the group wanted to notice it, the entire lab changed, it was the same lab, but it looked like if it had been done ways better than the previous one... It was more stunning by his advanced technology.
OS and the master also looked different, OS was more upgraded than before (well, we can say the floating ball is now in 4K).
For the master... He was no longer there, but something in your memories changed, you remember the Master sneaking during Raal's battle to the portal in order to stop Hate from using it.
Selena: he is fighting Hate now.
Thanatos: there is a lot of info to procesate now, take second to asimilate this change of the past.
You decided to do what Thanatos said, but your memory was fine, the only diference is what the Master welcomed you when you found this room, but nothing more different from that.
Leo: Hate is outside this portal.
Samus: I'm curious about how she is...
Selena: she is dangerous, are you ready guys?
Himeko is completely baffled by the change, and her eyes spin in confusion
Someone's messing with the past?
Isn't that bad?
Like... Crossing the river bad?
Like... big no-no, deep doo-doo bad?
The kinda bad that gets you tracked down and flayed alive by the police bad?
Ooohhhh what have I gotten mysel-
She pulls a stone out of her pocket and starts talking to it
What have you gotten me into!?
(edited by Hanekawa_Himeko)
Monoarty tries to get back up but falls back down to his knees again.
Monoarty: What happened? What happened to OS? 4f 53 2c 20 61 72 65 20 79 6f 75 20 61 6c 72 69 67 68 74 3f
Mariko nodded at Himeko answering her questions. But then she became lost on what was happening next.
What? Time travel...? I don't get it, but if it's a fight that we are going to do then I'm ready!
Mariko yelled not really even knowing what they are going to be fighting next.
Selena: we should retreat.
Leo: I'm going, is time to finish Hate.
Leo: shut up! If you want to remain here do it, but I'm going, we beated her before, and we will do it again.
Everyone looked at eachother, then Leo went into the portal, Kushala, Samus and Corrin followed him a second later, meanwhile Selena and OS remained with Mono, Mariko and Himeko.
OS: don't worry about me Mono, I'm fine! I feel 100 times better than before.
Thanatos: are you alright?
Selena: yes, however... I feel it... Going there is a suicide...
Thanatos: you've noticed that Hate has brought reinforcements too? That's my Selena.
Selena: I'll be clear.
Selena turned to the others, she was with a cold and serious look, but she was also very sad, like if what has just happened were unbelievable.
Selena: I know you came here by your own risk, well, except for you Himeko, I know there is a lot of info to procesate however I need you to be on your senses. Listen I can't let you go without warning you, Leo is suffering a lot due to Hate and I can tell you he will do risky moves. He is very unstable psychologically, not only that... I'm afraid... They are all death... Well, not yet, but I can tell you Hate is going to kill them all... If you go to this portal now, you will suffer that destiny too...
Selena looked down, she took a deep breath and continued talking.
Selena: what I propose... Is to leave them here... And run away now we still have time, I know, it sounds very coward, leave our friends there alone to die... But... You have to believe in me, I have BIG reasons to do this. If you don't believe me, you can always go to the portal and fight Hate, if you all go I'll follow you, I won't leave you alone.
OS: My master is strong enough to take care of himself, I'll do what you order me guys, I can always take you outside from here.
So... It was... Leave them alone and survive... Or fight and die...
Selena gave you a cruel option... But you feel she is not lying...
You have to choose:
Leave them and live...
Fight and see if you survive...
The decision is yours.
Note: you can choose, leave everyone now and run or fight with the others and die. Each decision has consecuences and makes you follow a route or another, as last thing, you can't split up because that would be excessive for me right now, think carefully before deciding.
Monoarty finally gets to his feet.
I'd love to fight, however, some of my parts are deteriorated and burned because of the last fight. I'm sorry, but I say we should fall back and get ourselves together.
Himeko seems conflicted
If it guaranteed that we'll die...
I don't even know what's going on?
I just started my training....
I wanna help... but....
I don't wanna die....
She casts her healing spell a few more times, healing everyone to max
Mariko looked at her 100% health (thanks Himeko) and sighed. No way I can leave that random person who I have known for like 30 min to die right? Mariko grabbed her hammer and began to walk to the portal.
Well, if we are all there then maybe we won't die right Selena? The way I see it, if you run away you die on the inside. You become a hollow shell, asking yourself everyday what would have happened if you went instead of running away. You keep telling yourself that you just would've died like them but... some days you wish you went along even if you would've died. In my eyes... we live together, or die together.
Himeko worriedly looks at Mariko
B-but... you look like you just lost a fight....
You're going to walk into an even harder one with even less preperation?
Yes you should save people.... but some people jump to their deaths in an emotional outburst....
If someone jumps off of a cliff with nothing but the clothes on their back, you jumping after them with the same won't save them, it'll just cause more unnecessary death...
There's a difference between running away and not walking straight into a meat grinder.
A difference between cowardice and a tactical retreat...
If he's determined to throw himself into a vat of acid, going with him is just increasing the death count, and making the people who survive weaker.
I don't know what's going on, but I know caution should be taken before jumping into unknown danger...
???:Oh my, what a painful and challenging choice, between risking certain death for someone who was trying to kill them yesterday who they hardly know, and actually making a plan
???2: Thatâ€™s what you call sarcasm right?
???1: Fenny boy, whyever would I have reason to be sarcastic?
â€œFennyâ€: I donâ€™t know, it just sounded like that thing you described...
???: this is why you let me do the thinking
Selena, Os, Himeko and Mono saw how Mariko went into the portal, Selena didn't said anything and respected her decision.
Selena: OS, could you?
OS: of course.
The picture in the wall changed, the wall began to open showing what was at the other side, it was a snowy mountain, the same mountain the group came from.
Selena: Thanks OS, good bye.
OS: good bye and I hope everything ends well.
Selena: I also hope that...
The group went through the portal and they walked away, each step was being louder than the other times, but it was due to the tense atmosphere, it was hard to not think about what could be happening to the others, suddenly, Selena broke the silence.
Selena: I take full responsibilities from this, I'm the one who gave you the idea, is the the most fair thing to do.
Tico: Nah, I don't think so.
Suddenly, everyone turned to Tico, someone who was not supposed to be here.
Tico: I performed an analysis, my chances of surviving were ways bigger by going with you, Leo, Corrin, Kushala and Samus had a 0%.
Selena: what about Mariko?
Tico: A 100% of surviving.
Tico: Hate is not interested in her, she is very emotional, Hate will try to manipulate her.
Selena: I see...
Tico: I have to follow Leo's orders, but that guy was no longer Leo, I thought he was fine during Raal's battle... But after the battle... He showed how he was really feeling, a desperated guy who only wanted to kill, no mather what. I decided to not follow him any longer after seeing how he stabbed you.
Selena: I prefer to not think about it, maybe I could have done something more to help him.
Tico: same for me, but I knew we couldn't have done anything, let's return and consider our options.
Selena: is what we can do for now...
After a fight against Hate, Ridley, Meta Ridley and Dark Samus, the group suffered a violent defeat against Hate.
She slowly walked towards Leo, a Leo that had wounds around his body and was heavy bleeding.
Hate: how you felt when you stabbed Selena?
Hate: aren't you going to say anything?
Corrin tried to stand up, but Ridley stepped over her to avoid that.
Corrin: stop it! Isn't he your son!?
Hate: he is.
Corrin: a-are you going to make your son suffer? What kind of mom are you!?
Hate: a mother that loves her child.
Hate: is true, I love Leo, and not only that, I'm very proud of the man he has become, he has followed his justice and done what he has thought it was correct, if things were different, I would have taked care of him a bit more and better.
Corrin: t-then... W-why...?
Hate: I'm myself before a mother, and as myself... I can't let you live, because you know who I'm and that is very bad for me.
Hate looked at Corrin, she saw how a tear appeared in Hate's eyes and went down through her face, Hate prepared her crimson Katana and aimed it Leo.
Hate: I'll kill you first, I know you don't want to see your friends die.
Hate: you are like me, we can't hate anything, for that I realized is impossible, you will never hate something in a way that could be usseful to me, well Leo... It has been a pleasure.
Hate grabbed the katana with her two hands and stabbed Leo in his chest while failling to her knees, Hate remained in that spot for two second while her eyes were letting out more tears. She opened her eyes, stood up and slowly took the katana out from the body.
Hate: And is done... Ah... Guys, finish them.
Mariko saw how Kushala, Samus and Corrin were finished, she even felt how their life vanished from their bodies. Mariko was trying to move her body, but it was not responding to her.
Hate slowly walked towards Mariko and without saying anything...
Hate, kicked her very strongly, the hit sent her a few metters away.
Hate: our job here is done, do me a favor and tell Selena that she is a coward, and that our next objetive is Nohr's casttle, if she and your friends are not there I will slay the entire population one by one in front of you, and then I will kill you. Have a good day.
Hate smiled and waved to Mariko, she then turned back and left the laboratory followed by her allies.
A bit later a wounded man appeared in front of Mariko and he began to threat her wounds.
Master: I didn't expect she would be that strong... I'm sorry to what has happened to your friends, how are you feeling?
Monoarty looks around.
What are we going to do now? Head to the castle? After what happened with Raal, I don't know if we will be able to stand up to them. Hell, I had to activate a Final Resort in order to stand a chance. We are going to have to find a way to get stronger.
"Fenny": Uh, Loki, you sure about the whole "none of them are dying thing", cuz most of 'em look kinda dead
Loki: Oh come on Fenny, everyone knows no one dies when they are killed. Can you even think of a single example?
Loki: I'm surprised you knew that
"Fenny":Well, you keep bragging about it so....
I... Don't know what's going on....
Why are people dying?
Why is the past being changed?
She looks at the stone in her hand
What do I have to do with any of this?
Alright, Monoarty. It is time. Time to head home.
Mr. Dream uses a beam to pick up Monoarty, and they disappear from that universe.
While everyone returned to Nohr's casttle, they saw a few persons who came to welcome them, they noticed the others were missing but judging how the group was they realized what had happened and let the group went inside.
The group was walking through one of the hallways when Thanatos began to speak.
Thanatos: this is the last day...
Selena: what do you mean?
Thanatos: I feel it... Hate will come to destroy this place.
Tico: what is she going to do? Bring an army here?
Selena: she is going to do that, she actually has an army...
Tico: Oh true... I'll talk with Xander to inform him... But we are very screwed... How are going to fight that woman? She is invincible right now.
Selena: there is a way...
Selena stoped walking and turned back to the others.
Selena: My katana.
Selena: later we talk about it, for now we should rest, later I give you the details, also, Himeko, do you need to know what has happened? I can give you a little summary.
Meanwhile at the laboratory, the Master finished to heal Mariko's wounds and he helped her to stand up.
Master: I'm sure she is already preparing herself to go and kill your friends, well, the rest of them.
You and the master took a second to look at your dead friends... Their dead bodies were there over the ground... Just thinking that they were alive before... You felt very sad for them...
Master: I felt something like this, time ago, I lost my best friend under dificult cirscunstances, he was an amazing person, overweight with a destiny that was torturing him physically and psichologically however, he managed to fight agaisnt it with a surprising maturity... Oh, sorry I was remembering... OS, program the portal, I have to clean and craft a few weapons, maybe a new hammer.
OS: Oki-Dokie master!
OS flew to the console while the master walked towards the bodies.
Master: feel free to do whatever you want, you are not forced to anything now.
I mean.... I was thinking about it on the way here but...
I guess this is just a "super strong bad guy doing evil things" right?
She looks around worried
The Star Shard brought me here.... So me being here must be important...
So I'll help.... But....
She clutches her spellbook to her chest
Just... uhh.... Don't let me die.....
You know. Xander's pizza guy must hate himself. Who builds a castle in a crater anyway? Ridiculous. The people are like fish in a barrel. Maybe that's why it's called Castle Cracker Barrel
*Sitting on the railing of a floor looking down at where Selena and the group were, Fayth's hooded form looks down at the group, his yellow eyes gleaming slightly with a mocking smirk.*
As for you guys, I see you've decided to bitch out and run away. Dear girl, that is disapointing. If your all gonna die, you might as well have killed yourselves back in that time fucked lab eh? Ha ha. Then again getting knocked on your ass by that old snake, I guess you didn't have a chance anyway.
*Fayth laughs aloud, swinging his legs over the edge of the balcony.*
"Can you blame them? Why would you die for a lost cause?"
A faint chuckling can be heard from the shadows of a nearby wall. A tall man with long, grey hair decides to make himself known for the time
"I mean seriously, do any of you have a reason for this? And don't bring up 'fate' or whatever, its the oldest excuse and has far outworn its welcome."
Selena ignored both Faith and Loki, she went closer to Himeko and slowly hugged her while smiling, she whispered to her with a calm voice that made Himeko calm herself.
Selena: Don't worry, I promise I'm not going to let you die, I'll do my very best to avoid that, so please, now calm down and don't think about Hate now, just close your eyes and try to not think about her...
Selena kept hugging Himeko for a minute aproximatelly, she then stopped and looked at Faith and later to Loki, now with a serious expression.
Selena: I was wondering when you would show yourselves, I know you have been watching us from the laboratory, actually I would like to know just what you've asked, why are you here when you have no reasons to? Or have you come just to see our friends die? Because that is not funny, not a single bit.
A dark ball came from a mark in the back of Selena's left hand, it went to a wall and turned into a black armored warrior who was supporting his back in the wall with his arms crossed.
Thanatos: calm down, there is no need to be aggressive right now, we are a bit tired so is better if we think logically.
Selena: what do you mean?
Thanatos: Hate has killed part of the only group who is able to fight her, she knows we are weak now, and she will use the chance to finish this right now.
Selena: do you mean...
Thanatos: she is comming here right now, and I'm sure she will be here sooner than we expect, tonight, this city will be a battlefield, but we still have time to do things, I could give the orders, but you do it better Selena.
Selena looked down, she knew exactly what she had to say, but it was something she was not used to, despite of have done it a few times, she was never getring used to it, however she made her mind up and looked at Tico.
Selena: Order the king to evacuate everyone, and I mean everyone, we will be the only ones who will remain here.
Tico: oh.. You think Hate will try to redirect the hate towards you... Okay, I'll do it.
Tico ran away and Selena looked at Thanatos.
Selena: you know where the exits are, when everyone has left mske sure you close them all, destroy the tunnel or do whatever you need to do.
Thanatos: if we destroy alm the exits she won't be able to know where they are, okay.
Selena: I must get into her head... She already knows what we are doing here... What we are saying... What we are thinking... We will do exaclty that, she must count a semi-infinite number of posibilities, the fact that we are doing exactly what she thinks is something she will easily discard because she knows me, she knows how smart I'm.
Selena began to walk in circles, she was mumbling to herself ehile thinking on everything that could affect Hate's way of thinking.
Selena: No, she will expect we are doing the first thing that came to her head, for that... Is why we are going to strike first I'm sure she will come on one of that ships, the moment she comes she will go outside, she knows anyone can beat her now, for that we must avoid her, if we fight her we will lose. oh... Sorry, I began to overthink it.
Selena passed her left hand near her left ear, she looked away but she was still thinking about Hate.
Easy. Easy. I ain't here to fight you. Don't know about the other prick though.
*Fayth hops down to Selena's level.*
Call me... I guess Alcibiades will work for now. I'm a being of the same... "classification" of this "Hat" person your having so much trouble with. Personally, I don't quite see the issue you have with her, but meh. Whatever.
*"Alcibiades" smirks at Selena.*
Course, if you'd rather not...
Loki chuckles lightly to himself as he closes his eyes, mind running at a thousand miles per hour
That is in fact exactly how I get my kicks. Watching mortals make fools of themselves for no good reason. Though now that I think of it...
Loki puts his hand on his chin, feigning thinking again before shaking his head
Nah, Iâ€™m sure Fennyâ€™s got something better to do. Luck then.
Himeko blushes at being hugged
So... This "Hate" is like some sorta god of evil or something?
I'll do my best to support everyone!
Just... Someone protect me, I'm pretty frail, I don't think I could survive being hit by someone so strong.....
I'm just human after all....
Selena looked at Albiciades, Loki and Himeko.
Selena: Hate is a being that is strong enough to destroy worlds, she is an infinite, the strongest kind of magical beings from a parallel universe called Time's Eclipse, she is smart, strong and "human rules doesn't apply to her", that means she can simply ignore mortal skills that could kill any human being, a skill to kill goods is usseles agaisnt her, and that magical being is comming to this location right now. Tell me, what do we do agaisnt her? Don't forget she has even resurrected dead monsters and she can revive them again if we kill them. If we want to get out alive from this we need a plan... A really good plan, do you have any ideas?
Selena's speech terrifies Himeko to the point where she almost pees herself
M-m-maybe.... We should... j-just run away?
She clutches her book tightly and steps back in fear
I-I-I'm just a normal apprentice! I can't go against something like that....
I don't even know you people!
I don't know where I am!
I don't know why I'm here!
She falls to her knees and begins sobbing.
....I don't wanna die....
(edited by Hanekawa_Himeko)
Heh. Sounds like a Classic Tier 1 Formless. God like power and they let it all go to their heads. Think themselves these unkillable beings destined to rule weaker beins under their thumbs. Ha. Pride doth come before a fall.
Well, like unlike the gods, Formless, even Tier One Formless, or Infinites as you call them, can be killed. As such, all we need is take her out. A simple cut the head off the snake approach. I really don't know why your making such a fuss.
(edited by Fayth)
Loki breathes out a chuckle and leans back, slowly closing his eyes
nice to see the smartest one here's the human child. The only answer is to just run off. If its impossible, its impossible. Only a massive amount of plot armor's gonna change that fact. Especially considering the complete lack of actual plans here
Selena went to Himeko to calm her down, however she suddenly stopped and looked at her, how her tears were going down and falling to the ground, how her body was shaking and how she was transmitting the fear she was feeling, then Selena opened her eyes as she smiled.
Selena: that's it! I know how to do this!
Both Tico and Thanatos returned just to see Selena smilling and Himeko crying.
Tico: dude bulling is bad...
Thanatos: I'm sure Selena would never do that, unlike you.
Tico: INLIKI YII BUENUNEUEBUEBUE...
Selena: I have a plan.
Tico: is a good one?
Selena: enough to save our ass, Thanatos, we must talk in private, but what will we do? I don't have time to explain everything, but Tico, Himeko, Alcibiades and Loki, Hate will come eith a few of that flying ships. I want you to go inside one of that ships and take control of it and then use it to destroy the others if you do it we can leave Hate without reinforcements and we will have chances to beat her. While you do that, I'll be fighting and distracting her to make sure she doesn't interfere. It sounds as a basic plan, but I can tell you the hardest part is the psichologically one, if Hate feels something is going wrong, she will change her moves and that will be lethal, even what we feels count, so for that I must distract her. Can you do that guys?
I mean, I could probably distract Hate myself if you want to... you know, live. I mean, if you want me to do the easy task while you go fulfill that death wish of yours, I'll do it. Just saying though. I can fight her in your place if you need a bigger distraction.
*"Alcibiades" raises a hand to his ear.*
Waiting for a snide comment from our friendly neighbourhood trickster in 3...2...1...
â€œAm I really that predictable?â€
Loki lets out another laugh before leaning back
â€œFine, Iâ€™ll cut to the chase then. Iâ€™m a schemer, not a fighter. Even IF I felt like helping you, which I donâ€™t, thereâ€™s not much I can do here.â€
Himeko listens, but doesn't seem any less frightened
T-that's nice and all.... b-but...
There's so few of us.... It doesn't really m-matter if they have allies....
Himeko holds herself, still on the floor
If we can't beat them... they don't need allies....
Plus... You yourself said they can just make new allies, and bring their old ones back to life....
(edited by Hanekawa_Himeko)
Selena slowly walked towards Himeko to help her to calm down, she was about to say something when Thanatos talked.
Thanatos: she is here.
Suddenly a lot of sparks appeared in the sky and a colossal ship appeared over the city, Selena looked throw one of the windows and she saw Hate on the top of the ship, she jumped from it as two angelic wings appeared on her back, she used them to remain in mid air and she opened her hand, a strange white prism appeared over it and it went to the middle of the city. Selena looked at it for a second and then ran away from the window.
Selena: be carefull!
The prism sent a few rays of light and then began to spin at high speed, moving the rays through the city and the casttle, when the prism stopped every spot the rays touched began to explode with violence and in just a few seconds the city got destroyed and the casttle got severe damage.
Hate: well? Are you going to do something? I'm waitting... Selena...
Selena was with Himeko, Alcibiades and Loki, she and Thanatos made sure to protect the others from the attack.
Tico: dude... This woman likes to call the attention... What do we do? We can't fight her now.
Selena: I know... We need a miracle to fight her or atleast leave this place alive...
Thanatos: hmmm... Maybe we are going to be lucky, I feel a familiar presence comming.
Meanwhile, the Moon team:
Cassandra raised her hand and everything got surrounded by light, they moment they were able to see something they saw they were over Nohr's casttle, they saw the whole city was burning and most of the house were destroyed. Flying over the city, they saw Hate who was smilling.
Hate: this girl is always making me wait... Uh?
Hate then looked at the rooftop with curiosity and she flew closer to the group who was there.
Hate: Crow? Aina? What are you doing with them?
Cassandra walked ahead from the others
Cassandra: They know the truth now Hate.
Hate: oh, and?
Cassandra: let's say, Selena has new allies.
Selena and the others went to the rooftop where they saw the second group looking at Hate.
They saw a red haired woman with a golden armor that covered her legs and arms and white and blue clothes. A black haired woman with Yukata. A man that looked like a hunter and a familiar person that suddenly had disappeared.
Selena: Dante!? You were with them!?
Tico: who? Oh! I thought he was dead!
Thanatos: I won the bet then.
Selena: EJEM... Why are you here?
Cassandra: didn't you need a miracle? Well, we are that miracle.
Hate: Miracle that is going to disappear.
Everyone looked at Hate, they were expected something, but nothing happened, Cassandra then showed the back of her left hand to Hate.
Cassandra: they are no longer connected to you, they are free now.
Hate: in that case I'll kill them again, is not that hard.
Selena: try it!
Selena went next to Cassandra and aimed her katana to Hate.
Selena: I'm not going to let you hurt them.
Tico and Thanatos went with them too.
Tico: I have not forgotten you've killed my friends, also, I'm tired of you.
Thanatos: While Selena uses my katana, I'll show you how strong I'm physically.
Looks like anyone os going to do a move for now, if you want to say something to the other group is your chance.
Yeah that's fine just ignore my proposition. It's not like I have feelings or any... hmm?
*Fayth looks up as Hate approaches.*
Ah. Well looks like we're fighting anyway. That works.
* "Alcibiades" summons two swords from out of thin air with a snap of his fingers, catching them as they materialise. He rests one of them over his shoulders, pointing the other at Hate.*
Lady Hate, I persume. The serpent sends his regards.
as the palace begins exploding around them, Loki snaps his fingers with a smirk
Well, I suppose that makes it my time to skedaddle. Have fun.
With that, his image begins to dissolve like dust in the wind, leaving not a trace that he were ever there
Himeko sits on the floor and stares at the absolute destruction in terror, her crying stopped by complete awe.
She lets out a strangled squeal as this time she actually does piss herself in fear, completely frozen in place.
Dante put his hands up staring at Tico and Selena.
"Woah, woah, woah, none of this would've happened if those damn reality breakers didn't put a hole in the floor where I was walking. Don't worry I was never on their side just hanging back really." Dante pulled out Rebellion and looked over to Hate. "Looks like you guys got new allies. Good. gonna need em."
A portal opens up beside Himeko, and a blue haired girl walks in eating a hotdog
This looks like a fun fight.
Hi Y'all, names Nana.
I've been following this girl for a bit and you look like you could use some help.
Nana nonchalantly picks up Himeko and tosses her into the portal before closing it
Now then, looks like a fight.
She draws the sword from her back and it transforms from
Have at you fiend!
Aina would be able to feel the link form between her and Cassandra before her vision suddenly changes to another location. She looked around as she noticed the damage and Hate. A bit disconcerting to say the least. At the very least, with the contract she can at least come to the conclusion that she didn't bring her here to die. She didn't say anything. Simply gazing upon hate as she silently began to assimilate the shadows around her.
The crow gazes at Hate and simply claps for her.
Tis just a divine reverie to see someone slay my queen into pink pulpy mush... for those who hurt my queen is a enemy to Cainhurst itself!!
Hate, a being that has ressurected a group of people to make them fight by her side, not only she has lied to them, she has manipulated them, she wanted to torture them and use them as Hate vessels. She is also a being that has been manipulating mankind, destroyed uncontable lifes and a being that has even killed her own son.
Hate looked at the ship and moved her head to perform a sign, when she did it both Ridleys flew from the mothership and passed by the casttle's rooftop at high speed while more little ships began to leave the bigger one.
Selena Thanatos and Cassandra went ahead and confronted Hate.
Thanatos: if she joins the battle we won't be able to win this, we'll keep her busy while you deal with her allies.
Selena: we got this, go and kill the flying lizards.
Cassandra: we'll be able to fight her if we work together, is better if you deal with her allies.
Selena, Thanatos and Cassandra charged against Hate. Meanwhile the little ships were preparing their weapons to shot at the group but the moment they did it a few portals opened around the group and redirected the bullets towards the ships dealing severe damage and making them explode.
Tico: do I have to remaind you that my friends have died by those assholes? Do me a favor and slay the big insects while I do fireworks.
Tico looked at the group with a smile in her face.
Tico: have a nice weeeeee!
Tico opened another portal and went into it, moments later you saw a explosion inside the enemy mothership, suddebly you daw Ridley landing in front of you while Meta Ridley landed behind, there was only one way to do this, you have to kill them.
Meta Ridley: 30000.
Tch. Damnable Space Lizards. Not suprising Hate would choose a being that can't stop getting resurrected as generals. Bastards are used to it by now. Move or I'll move you. Actually I'll make the choice for you.
*With a smirk, Fayth opens his hands. His swords vanish into multiple glowing orbs.*
You guys should be careful. With wings like those, Turbulance must be a big problem.
*With a chuckle, Fayth launches himself into the air. More of the same orbs spiral around him before forming a bow in midair. Fayth would grab it before aiming down and firing. A strong gust of hot wind comes crashing down on the field. Just above the party, the wind would split, crashing into the two Ridleys. Fayth would then fall back down, rejoining the party, bow in hand.*

Orion (Resistances Changed. Moveset changed. Deals Severe Fire/Wind damage to all foes)

Nana changes her sword from RuneSave to Sylpharian and rushes at MetaRidley, Jumping at him as she simultaneously slashes and kicks off his face, throwing herself high into the air above the combat arena
Sword Change: Sylpharian - A short blade with one edge. It makes the user almost weightless, allowing them to move the speed of wind, and attack so quickly that the slashes can't be seen.
However, the slashes themselves are weak, and while they can cut through almost anything, they cannot cut very deeply.
x2 Light Slashing <Meta Ridley>
x1 Light Bludgeoning <Meta Ridley>
Positioning: Above the Battlefield, in the air.
Dante sighed looking left and right at both of the Ridleys. He waved the tip of his sword at the metal one.
"Come on you over-grown lizard with wings! Come get me!" Dante taunted as he slashed the air sending a wave of demonic energy racing towards metal Ridley.
The Crow smiles at the non metalic Ridley and points the Falchion towards him.
I wonder of this can cleave through your draconic hides. Because this shall be a first of fighting you.
He vanishes in a puff of dust and reappears just he can cleave a piece off of the space pirate.
