2022: After Desperation 01Chapter 01: Past Meets Future
Years have passed since the fall of Armageddon. At least, this is what I came to realize when I came to. I looked out the window and saw the large mark of our battle. Wow, I said, I know I was part of some fight down there, but did I help in doing that? Why cant I remember? Just then, the alarms tripped. The next thing I knew, I was facing off against robotic versions of myself. So, you wanna throw down? Well, come on! Im ready!! In a matter of minutes, the room was filled with scrap metal and static. Whos there!? I turned to find a girl in what appeared to be a combat suit. She had an unusual pistol aimed at me. She looked just like Dawn. I couldnt bring myself to attack her, but I stood on guard anyway. Who wants to know? She looked at the capsule I was found in. That pod
SL: RA 'EX'Extra Chapter: After The Ragnarok Crisis
Years have passed, and the Earth was steadily being rebuilt. Civilians were busy rebuilding all that was destroyed, creating new families, and constructing new towns. Ragnarok was used to help revitalization of communities. The building itself was soon a theatre to host plays, one of which reminiscent to the climatic struggle. Armageddon itself was no longer visible. Neither was Mist, who was assumed dead after apparently exploding with it, something he stopped me from doing. It was history at it's finest indeed.
An organization was formed around the same time. Our girl was born around then as well. The founder was Dawn, who was so grieved about the idea of losing me. Her sadness became her courage to fight further battles in my absence. A branch of the military, it was stationed in a ship in space, where it took surveilence across the globe for any unusual activ
SL: RA 11Chapter 11: Tears, Loss, And Demise
It was about to be the end to everything. Elemental Mist and I were barely holding on against Armageddon, whose power was gradually diminishing with each attack. "Damn," I started to speak, "Nothing's working against it!!" "I hate to say so, but you are right. We're not doing enough damage to it." It was then I though about what we did to him. We did do something decent using our rush attacks. Risky, but I had a great idea. "Mist. Our rush attacks have some effect on him. If we use those, then he'll eventually be defeated." "I see what you mean," he replied, but the rush attacks are taxing on our bodies. I'm not sure how it'll affect us in our Super Stages." "Perhaps, but unless you have better ideas..." Armageddon was still causing havoc. "No choice," he finally agreed, "Let's do it!"
We summoned all the power we had and prepared to strike. "Golden Drive!!" "Elementa
SL: RA 10Chapter 10: Armageddon's Wake
"I see you have achieved your super form. Good, then that means you broke the curse of the Mute stage," said a cocky Mist, also transormed. "You have done what was deemed impossible." "You... you cheated it." I took a good look at Mist. I suspected right. What I had to fight for to retain my reason and achieve super form, he did just the opposite. "You used the Forbidden Dark Stone, didn't you? That's the only logical reason you turned into this. Not only that, I bet you were just like me. You killed Dusk... in your Mute stage." Mist merely clapped. "Outstanding. We didn't even start, and you have already figured me out." Soon, Dawn, out of frustration, called out to him. "You monster, I'll get you for what you did to my brother!!!" "Oh, really?" A force field soon deployed behing me, rendering Dawn and the others trapped. "Damn it. Strider, be careful." "I know." In her thoughts, she couldn't bear seeing my death
SL: RA 09Chapter 09: Day of Reckoning
Dawn of the next day arrived. I was fully healed and harmonized with my overflowing energy. Training with Calico and Lysten served well in furthering my growth. At the same time, Mist was taking measures to match my level. "At ths level, I'll surely die before this batlle begins to be exciting for both of us. I might have to borrow some energy from that stone while he toys around with my robotic copy." While he was engaged in doing so, I, along with Dawn and the rest, were already en route to his hideout. Of course, he did have a rowdy welcome commitee, so we had to get past them before we even caught up to Mist himself. As Dawn did her best to hack into his security, I handled the assault from in front of us.
After a good while, we finally arrived at his lair: our fated battlefield, Ragnarok. "MIST SPARETT!!!", I shouted. But what came out of his throne chair wasn't h
SL: RA 08Chapter 08: Bonds of Lovers
I woke up a week later. I was in a coma from my fatigue, thanks to the fact that I transformed into not only the Mute Form, but also Super Form almost immediately afterwards. My body was weak, so I was ordered to rest. In my mind I was wondering about that golden light, which was akin to my Super stage. Aside from that, I was wondering why Dawn risked her own life just to bring me back. Unintentionaly, I overheard her talking with Tyanna at the very moment.
"Tyanna, thank you. Your treatments for Strider are more than I can wish for." Tyanna became rather modest. "Nonsense. We just do whatever we can. However, I am puzzled. You put yourself in harms way, just to rid Strider from his curse. I doubt even he understands why." I couldn't avoid admitting that she was right. That I NEVER understood. "Don't worry. I just do whatever's necessary to keep him with me. I'll be sleeping
SL: RA 07-BChapter 07 B: Malicious Nightmare: Light of the Super Transformation
My body couldn't take anymore. I was violent beyond my breaking point. I soon found what was left of "myself" murdering Macer. Even to the point where I was hitting Macer, already down for the count. It was getting harder for me to regain control of my body. To lose complete control only menat that my death was assured. Dawn reached me which led to inner conflict. Outside, she could see that I was struggling to regain my sanity. As much times she was pushed back, part of which was to avoid her from harm, she persistently tried to aproach me. While my claws clutched her arms, I felt her lips kissing mine. Inside, that made a light emerge, where my conciousless laid. As soon as I approached that light, I repossessed my body. My body returned to it's original, gray appearance. I thought I saw heaven, but in reality, heaven disguised itself as Dawn, and saved me from my own demise
SL: RA 07-AChapter 07 A: Malicious Nightmare: Dangers of the Mute Transformation
I couldn't control my own body anymore. I was unaware that Macer didn't have his way with Dawn. Tyanna laid beside me in horror. When I saw that monstrosity I had become, I howled in extreme bloodlust. While I couldn't actually do anything, I had retained a bit of my sanity. "Leave this place. And take Dawn with you. Please." "Alright." Macer saw Tyanna making a run for it, as I instructed, but before he managed to stop her, "I" interfered. "No. I'LL be the one to kill you!!" Macer's destruction was the only thing I had left in my mind. Tyanna and her crew escaped sucessfully with Dawn. Now, I could allow my maliciousness to take full control of my body. My claws were ready to create a bloodbath.
While Tyanna's crew was elsewhere, Dawn was given treatment and a set of new clothes to wear. "Well, now that I'm healed, we can resume our
SL: RA 06Chapter 06: The Demon Within
For a few days, my mind was phasing out on me. In my mind, I kept thinking I saw something resembling me, except this 'thing' was more violent, malicious, and bloodthirsty. I collapsed a few times having that beast in my mind. I even felt like vomitting at times. I tried to surpress these thoughts, which was mysteriously easy whenever Dawn appeared. Just looking at her made me forget about it, evenn though this was constantly temporary. What ever this meant, I figure that whateer that form was will get her involved. I careless for her, but I want to solve my own battles, so I don't want her stepping in for any reason. "Strider? What's wrong?" I tried to keep it together. The less she knew, the less worry she'll have for me. "Don't worry about it. It's nothing." I refuse to get her involved. She has her own battle to think about, after all.
After some time walking, I felt my
