>camera zooms in to a computer console, one that is clearly in bad condition, wires and parts sticking out in certain places

>a hand reaches out from the bottom of the camera's viewpoint to touch the console...

OI!

>only for another hand to reach out and smack it away


Don't go jus' touchin' anyfin' yew like!

>camera sweeps up to view a wrinkled face, belonging to an elderly man, who was currently glaring into the camera and shooing it back with his hands


Yew look wif yer eyes, not yer fingertips!

Ah've met people who dew look wif their fingertips, an' they're a lot more polite th'n yew!

>he'd stop after the camera backed away, placing his hands on his hips while still glaring at it


How did yew get in here, anyweh?

>he then raised a hand and shook his head


Never mind, doesn't matter.

People are always comin' an' goin' through here, suppose i's not much 'f a surprise anymore.

>he'd then turn and walk back to the console, already pulling at levers and pressing buttons


Point is, yer here now, an' now yer goin' home.

Wherever tha' is, bu' I'll figure it out, jus' gimme a few minutes.

>as the old man played around with the console, moving around the circular frame every so often, the camera would zoom in on him, following his every movement

>after a few seconds, he'd stop suddenly, almost bumping into the camera, and growing annoyed with it all over again

Dew yew mind? Yer in th' weh!

>he'd gesture for the camera to move aside, which it does, as he walks past to continue his work

>after another second or two, he'd turn back to look at it, as if it just asked a question

What am I doin' tha's so important?

Why? What diff'rence does it make tew yew? Yer gonna be out 'f here 'n no time flat, so maybeh yew should mind yer own business!

>he'd stare annoyedly at the camera for a few seconds longer, then sigh and shake his head, turning back to the console


If yew must know, I've been observin' this nearby planet.

>he'd reach up and move a screen over, displaying a large planet with splotches of blue and green all over it


Strangest fin'. All these rifts 'n space an' time will jus' open up an' drop stuff onto it. An' i's jus' normal there.

One day yew could be out in th' garden, havin' a nice cup of lemonade 'n th' shade...

An' then BAM!

>he clapped his hands together to emphasize this statement


Some boulder from another world crashes into yer house!

An' tha's jus' th' tip of th' iceberg!

Whole societies, mutated life forms, sentient equines, ancient demigods, monsters from yer worst nightmares...

>the camera would sweep over to look at the man, who was now appearing more excited than annoyed


Imagine takin' everyfin' yew can think of an' jus' pilin' it into one sandbox.

Wot dew yew think would happen then?

>there was a brief pause as the man stared into the camera, before his eyes flicked to the screen, then back to the camera

>he'd let out a sigh with an annoyed tone, then move away from the console while pointing at the screen

Alrigh', yew can watch tha' fer a while.

But only until I take yew home!

>he'd walk away from the console, leaving the camera behind, shouting as he walked


It does no good tew focus so much on someone else's story tha' yew forget tew write yer own!

>as the silver-haired man disappeared behind the console, the camera turned back to the screen displaying the large world on it, slowly zooming in...

>as ever, Freeze remained emotionless and expressionless when Stein spoke, not even flinching when the stray sparks of his Wavelength touch his suit
>but when Stein finishes speaking, the man would let out a heavy breath, as if finally understanding what was going on

...Pretorius is gone.

He left this planet many months ago. No one knows where he went.

I doubt he will return.


>all of this was said simply and bluntly, yet the voice would somehow sound less cold than normal

>Freeze would lift up his gun and smack it again, the weapon letting out a slow whirr in response, still not fully functioning

...L-Left the p-planet...?

>The disbelief colors Stein's voice vibrantly, his gaze fixated on the man fiddling with the the ice gun.

>After all that he had done to Marie, and everything he had threatened or coyly played, he simply vanished from Rigel Prima?

A-And you t-think t-t-that I'll b-b-buy that exc-c-cuse?

>Pretorius was an Asylum resident so it wasn't impossible that he had the capability to do so, but the man's reasons for doing so stymies the doctor terribly.

>Then again, what about Pretorius didn't?

>>887891

Pretorius was Lord Zedd. They were one and the same.

>again, this was said simply and bluntly, just stating what he knew were the barebone facts


He contacted me as Pretorius and promised to aid me. To give me what I needed to achieve my goal.

The agreement was that I would attack Wayne Manor, with the intent of causing discord and strife among the residents. He named you specifically as my target.

But his plan failed, as you know. And when it failed, he disappeared, without fulfilling any of the agreements he made, with myself or his other allies.


>with another smack to his gun, Freeze would turn his gaze back to Stein, speaking simply once more


That is all.

>Pretorius was Lord Zedd?


...

>Stein stares at Fries, still shivering violently in his spot. His expression is as vacant as an empty field, the revelation absolutely bewildering him.


...

........

...

>That was surprisingly cohesive towards his puzzlement regarding Pretorius' involvements during that time period. He couldn't quite fit what it was, a team up or something along those lines seemed like the most feasible option.


...O-Oh.

>>887894

Does that answer satisfy you?

>Freeze, on the other hand, seemed to be leading towards something else, his question having a slight curious tone to it


Are you content with this?

Or does your desire for revenge still smoulder within you?

Do you still wish to continue this battle, in the vain hope it would quench that thirst?


>his gun remained by his hip, but his trigger finger would hover near it, still prepared to keep this going

>Stein lowers his head and slowly pushes himself to a knee. His body heat slowly returns to him, the shivering tapering down into a mild tremble.

>He coughs and shakes his head.

R-revenge against h-him; if I e-ever get the p-p-pleasure I'll take it.

I d-don't care if someone t-take away m-my free will. It's h-happened b-before. But Marie...

>His hand planted on the floor again curls into a hard fist, his breath coming as a loud and clearly angry growl.


She doesn't deserve that!

...they never do.

>strangely enough, for the first time there would be only the slightest hint of an emotion coming from Freeze's voice

>remorse
>he would turn his face away from Stein, staring off in another direction, while the professor got to his feet

...if there is one thing I regret in this affair, it is further involving that woman.

I have made the realization that, in doing so, I am no better than the ones who have...

...who have hurt my wife.


>and again, another emotion would come out through his voice

>it was a hollow sadness, one befitting Freeze's robotic voice
>he'd turn his head back to Stein, still speaking in the same tone

That is a burden I must bear for however long I have left to live.

>he'd slowly raise his gun, aiming it at Stein's head


That I have infected you with the same rage I harbour.

Edel Kina!iCSweetsaM 887900

File: 1424137941178.jpg (282.95 KB, 850x1201, 00111.jpg)

>>887877
>That was quite the opening to their fight. She was certain that she was completely focused on her opponent to keep her in her sights. But with a single blink of an eye, she was already a few feet away from her. It was apparent that her childlike form wasn't as much of a deterrent than Edel had initially thought.

>She didn't have much time to counter the girl's attack at all. Within the brief moment she had, she held up her arms in front of her face and braced herself for the incoming impact from her opponent. As the attack connected, the force of the knee pushed the adult vampire back, skidding her feet across the ground and leaving a dug up trail that led over to Edel.


>Her arms were definitely in pain. She swore she could see smoke coming from where the knee hit her. She was just glad it didn't connect with her face. That would have ended the sparring session instantly, or perhaps ended her very own life.


Geez, and you aren't even in your full form too. Guess I really gotta step it up...

>As much as she hated trying in these fights, if she wants to stay in one piece she has to get pretty serious about this. But for a Blood Letter to be fighting a Berserker with just brute strength alone is difficult as is. She'll have to resort to strategy and cheap tricks if she was going to win this.


>Her arms lowered and she returned to her normal fighting stance, glaring at Carmilla intensely as she concentrated on her next attack. While both of their eyes were connected, Edel dug her shoe into the dirt as much as she can before Carmilla could notice her ruse. Just as soon as her opponent's eyes disconnected, Edel kicked forward, spraying a cloud of dirt and pebbles everywhere in between the two of them, masking their vision of each other.


>Amidst the confusion of the clouded vision, a single rock was thrown from the front, heading straight towards Carmilla. Unbeknownst to her, it was merely a distraction for what Edel had planned.


>As soon as she put up the distraction with the dirt cloud and the rock, the girl hurriedly escaped to the side while Carmilla was dealing with everything else. At first, she had initially planned to get a good punch into the girl's side, but she then remembered why she agreed to do this in the first place, and that was to figure our if Carmilla really is into the whole S&M stuff. And she practically set it up so that she could get a good, clean hit on the girl. Why not take the opportunity while she has the chance?


>Thus, Edel appeared just behind Carmilla, towering over her with an evil grin on her face and a small twinkle in her eye as she looked down at her prey. She then raised a flat hand into the sky and reared it back, garnering all the strength she could muster into this one attack.


HEY CARMILLA!

>She didn't give her rival the chance to even look back. The raised hand had already swung down, smacking Carmilla's behind as fast and as hard as she could, much like how a mother would spank her child if they had done something wrong, but in this case, it was for more personal reasons.

"How can anyone with the same name as mom be like this?"

N-No you have me mistaken for someone much better looking.

...

>Stein makes a small snort, his head still bowed. If he knows Freeze is pointing a gun at his head, he doesn't make it known. His trembling is weaker than earlier, but everything is still terribly cold to him.

>Stein rises to his feet and takes a long and slow breath, his brows furrowed in consternation.

Y-You aren't the one w-who subjected Marie to t-that. You facilitated it but-...

...

>Stein rolls a shoulder, and coughs once more, his gaze still focused on the ground.

>Out of the man's quiet and hallow voice, something rubs the doctor the wrong way about it.

Why did you help him, if you know what that feels like?

Because it does not matter what I do.

I will bear any burden, commit any crime, do whatever I have to do.

Whatever sins I am responsible for, it will all be worth it to see her smile once again.


>the gun would finally give a weak hum, after a few sparks would sputter out


So you understand why I must do this.

>evens Roll 1d1000 = 106

>...well that kinda sucked, she was basically kicked out of her home due in part to Duo fending her off


>Duo blinks a few times, This woman's tried to kill me, why the hell should I feel sorry for her?"


>Frankly she shouldn't, but hey, Otoya was at least guaranteed not to kill her until she's collected 100 lost souls for Hades


>Maybe, just maybe between then and now, Duo could convince her that killing her would be in the bad thing category....


>biting her lip, Duo let's out a sigh


want to stay at my place in the mean time? I mean sure you can't really die, but it's cold out and I know how uncomfortable that can be at night...

>>887903

>Having seemingly ignored Wakana's earlier statement, Duo waves her hand at Wakana


oh come on, learn to take a compliment.

>She said nonchalantly in response to Wakana's modesty.

>Stein curiously doesn't flinch between the whirring of the ice gun, or the smashing noise of the forgotten vampire intervening before him.

>He continues to stare moodily at the ground, his expression dark and contemplative.

...

>Finally, Stein sniffs and turns his head to glance at the blonde, his voice as flat as a piece of paper.


No, I'm certain I'm suffering through some case of hypothermia.

>He pauses and turns to look at the hall behind them, his consternation rising. He stares towards the exit and releases a slow breath, which plumes before his face.


...The people at the front didn't make it. I didn't see it fit to waste my time on them when they were already dead. The people in the hall definitely need medical attention. I'm not sure for how long they were frozen, but they might have more severe cases of hypothermia than I do.

>He pauses and glances to the vampire again, a strange mixture of awkwardness and uncertainty crossing his expression.


...Thank you.

>>887900
>The battle had been going well so far, Edel's reaction was to throw dirt at her and she was all to ready for her Rival for her to pull such a cheap trick. With an up to shield her eyes and an open palm to catch the rock, she was ready to counter with her own move.

...hmm?

>But Edle wasn't where she thought she was and when the impact to her rear occurred, she was caught of guard.


IEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

>She leaps in to the air holding her stinging butt. When she lands she gives Edel a look if indignation and growing anger... with a small blush on her face.

>the somber and sympathetic look on her face was fully directed at the man in the metal suit, likely due to her having heard the whole story

...roigh'.

>she'd look back to Stein after a moment, forcing an awkward smile of her own


It's my job, aftuh all.

>she'd then reach for her belt and pull out a walkie-talkie, pressing a button and speaking into it quickly


Room's all clear, target is down. Subjects out front are deceased, bu' there are six in 'ere who need assistance, sufferin' from varying degrees of hypothermia. Rooms are mostly frozen ovuh, recommend heatin' units for all involved.

>she'd turn off the walkie after that, then looked back to Stein, giving him a short nod


They should be comin' in now, they'll 'elp yew out.

>Her job, eh?


If you're apologizing for saving my life, I don't know why you are unless you regret it.

>The dry humor inserts itself into his voice, his head tilting to look at her properly.

>It's strange, thinking that the vampire that had been at least responsible for his car accident with the DeLorean had ended up saving his life.
>She wasn't sporting that Riftguard badge he remembered her owning...did she join the TPD instead?
>If she had, she must have been either very lucky or the new management had opted to allow vampires onto the force.
>It's funny; if he actually filed an official report on the person responsible for the crash, she may not have even enjoyed such a position. Especially considering the Town's feelings regarding vampires since last April.

...At least now you can use reasonable suspicion for demanding people sitting around in their cars to step out. That's a TPD thing, isn't it?

>>887914
>By the time Carmilla had flown into the air due to the strength of Edel's spanking, the dust around them had already settled and they could clearly view each other once again.

>Edel watched as her opponent flew into the air, surprised at the amount of height Carmilla had gained just from that slap alone. It was pretty damn powerful to cause her to go that high. She was almost impressed. She didn't think she had the strength within her, but she was actually rather proud about this.


>Finally, Carmilla had landed back onto the ground and immediately glared at her. From the look of her face, she was angry. Heck, her eyes and the red on her face pretty much says it all. Anyone would be embarrassed from getting spanked all of a sudden. However, what confused Edel the most was the question following the recovery.


Eh? What do you mean "What are you doing"? I'm attacking you, aren't I? I mean, we are fighting. But before we continue, I need to know something..

>The girl bent over and lowered herself down to Carmilla's height so the both of them were face to face. She inspected her entire face for any signs of pleasure that she had when the attack hit, but all she could see was her anger before anything else.


..Did it feel good? Are you into that sort of stuff, Carmilla?

>And just like that, everything about trying to keep it subtle and in herself was over. It seems like the girl was caught in the moment and had forgotten everything she planned to do before they ever started the fight.

You have every right to it if you think I'm doing something illegal; you just didn't have as much of a right to it when you were Riftguard. I'm just surprised you weren't TPD to begin with.

>Stein rubs at his arms and walks forward, his breath still puffing in front of him.

>He could do with a warm blanket right now...and his headache wasn't improving very well.

Anyway; I'm heading out for the paramedics. Maybe to help some of the other victims. Keep an eye on Fries; last time I fought him he happened to teleport away. I'm not sure if it's his ability or Pretorius-...Zedd's ability, but he shouldn't be running around free after all he's done.

>Not once looking back, Stein slowly shuffles along to the main hall leading out of thie chilly museum, still rubbing at his arms to regain some kind of sense of touch, or at least some warmth.

It took so many boxes, so much to lure it away from the "Toy Box" toy store...

I never want to see that ghost again...

>He should have delegated this sort of job to an administrative Riftguard or Retriever associate rather than handling the matters himself. It was maddening how, in the time he established Riftguard, certain participants would disappear only to come back weeks or months later recounting wild tales of where they had been. These times often tried Sephiroth's patience, as while the stories were not often outside a realm of possibility, were indeed stupid enough to be simply made up too. Any Riftguard, if they were either brave or smart enough, could say anything and expect it to constitute as acceptable explanation for absence in their time.
>Seras Victoria, the last Riftguard he had spoken to with this exact scenario in mind, had quite a tale of her own regarding being kidnapped to the moon. Sephiroth, having been in a good mood that day, saw fit to look past it and even grant her as much as vacation pay for her unprecedented time away.

>The vampire snapping back at him for his assertions of the Retriever she was so fond of had rubbed him in a particularly wrong way, to the point where he was soured with giving anyone as generous a hand for such abrupt absences.

>His mood hardly faced any improvements in that time, the sting of the tournament still fresh in his mind. Sephiroth still could not bear the shame of that absolutely embarrassing display in front of not only world-wide television but also before Princess Celestia herself.
>So much so he opted to remain most days in his office all day or all night, depending on his shifts. Sephiroth didn't see to the new recruits, did not have to meet with the TPD as often since the new commissioner was appointed, and didn't have to stop any threats to Equestrian or Town safety himself.
>It gave more of a cushion to what had happened the more time passed since it did. He didn't relish the day where he had to once again go public.

>Luckily, today wasn't that day. It was simply a review of an MIA Riftguard, newly appointed at that. He could afford some attention to this, though he had very little expectations for what he was inevitably going to be faced with.


>A new Riftguard recruit who had disappeared, unannounced, for far longer than the maximum time allotted towards 'check-in' bias.

Did a little experimentation with this one, trying to do almost no dialogue and making it feel more like a story being told than actions being performed.
>Hueco arrived just a few days after the incident in the mountains, having taken a boat he got there later than he could've with a portal; but, truthfully, it was far easier to take a portal to a place that he visited before. In the case of Barbarossa, a place he had never visited before, taking a portal to it would risk him opening it miles away, high up in the air, in the middle of the ocean, or inside a wall.
>nevertheless, he arrived at Barbarossa.
>he had a promise to fulfill...

>stepping off the rocky wooden ship, he took in the salty sea air of the oceanlocked country. Splashing waves came from beneath his feet, lapping against the pillars that supported the enormous city, while the noise of chatter sounded out through the rest of the city.

>how he would love to check out the fresh fish they have here, he could smell it. Friend fish, grilled fish, smoked fish, raw fish, cooked in all sorts of ways. The gruesome idea of what a /fishman/ would taste like, he half jokingly wondered. It wasn't the time for that. There was someone he had to meet.

>it's been 59 years... Was she still alive? She was human after all and 2 years older than the immortal Hueco... Did she even remember him...? What about his memories of her?

>He.. Remembered she was a wild child, she teased him frequently, he remembered her name was Sheryl.
>Lost in thought, Hueco leaned against a street lamp on the side of the road, physically as well as mentally off balance.
>"She's alive" he told himself over and over... "I must fulfill my promise, make her know that I'm alive too..."
>with a deep breath, calming his nerves just enough to press on, he went into the city. Going past shops, hotels, and other customs of the city. He got a few stares from the citizens. "A person with cat ears here?" "Did he come just for the fish?" "I thought cats didn't like water."
>ignoring the comments, he went from person to person and asked each one. "Have you heard of a woman named Sheryl? She should've lived her for a about 60 years." Something along those lines..
>upon being asked her last name, Hueco would would go silent, or just say "I don't know."
>when asked why he's looking for her, he'd just say either "I'm her nephew," "I'm her grandson," "I have a package for her," or some similar, progressively worse excuse.

>Regardless of the variation of the question, every reply would be.

>"I don't know."
>"Sorry, I don't know her"
>"I know a Sheryl," Only for it to be the wrong person.
>Among other questions not having to do with Hueco's reason for being there...
>In the end, the catboy was left with a pointless journey and a shattered, already rotten mood. Crestfallen, sitting down on a curb, staring down at his feet, he began to mumble to himself, low enough so no one could hear exactly what he said. Mumbling about this all being for nothing, how he failed to meet Sheryl again, how...
>How she might be dead.

>the hot sun meeting down on him, he began to doze off, not caring if he fell asleep right then in their at the side of the road... Then, he felt a finger tap on his shoulder, catching his attention.

>looking up, he came eye to eye with a middle aged man. Dark skinned, a typical trait of Barbarossans.
>Pointing to Hueco's ears, he tried to speak to him, but clearly had a tenuous grasp on English at best. But, the words he said, Hueco caught
>Sheryl
>My mom
>"Said about person with cat ears."
>and most importantly, despite butchering the pronunciation:
>"Hueco?"

>he had a lead... He actually had someone who knew her. Hueco tried his best to converse with the man, despite the language barrier, and before long, he was following him. Through streets and alleys, to the outskirts of the city, the middle class district. All till they ended up in front of a small, wooden house...

>the man explained how her eye sight had declined years ago, so he had to live with her and help her along in her old age. Despite the fact that she couldn't see him again, Hueco was comforted with the information that she was alive...81 years old, but alive..

>the man opened the door and let Hueco in. A quiet cozy house. Poor lighting though and smelled a bit musty, well ike a old person's home. A voice called down from behind a door, greeting the man, and asking who was with him, having heard the extra footsteps... To which the man simply said, in another language, Hueco couldn't understand it, it all sounded like mumbo jumbo to him. But, he caught his name in there... "Something something something, Hueco"

>Hueco stepped forward, hearing the voice. It was older, weaker, but it had a hint of familiarity to it... It /was/ her voice. Hueco found himself on the verge of tears.

>with that, a long silence came over the room, a short gasp was heard from the door, The rushing of feet. Hueco could tell, that she must've been feeling the same. Heart racing, a mixture of sadness and happines, the sense of reunion...


>He was greeted by a stout old woman. Short, hunched over, using a cane to walk, old age having taken its toll on her. Meanwhile, after all these years, Hueco was as youthful as he was when he left. She stepped closer, unable to see him even from a few feet away. But, through her blurry, decayed vision, she saw the vague image of him. Slender, petite, tan skin, and those ever present ears... No, there was something different about him, something he didn't have when she last saw him. A sense of maturity, maybe? He seemed a bit more jaded... For better or for worse, considering what the catboy had been through.

>the two friends stood in front of each other, a silence falling over them, which was then broken, upon Hueco speaking up, barely able to do so, as he slowly broke down.

...I'm sorry for being late.

>the two friends, after 59 years of being apart, wrapped their arms around each other, tears streaming down Hueco's face.
