Convergence: Dirk and Impmons Road to no-where.
The wheels of Behemoth furiously pounded the road of the Japans highway. It had been a while since they had been anywhere near a major city, they were currently on their way towards Hiroshima. The sound of Guns n’ Roses blasted from a CD player on the back of Behemoth. “IN THE JUNGLE, WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE. WATCH IT BRING YOU TO YOUR, KNNN KNNE KNEE’S. I WANNA WATCH YOU BLEED!!!” sang both Impmon and Dirk together, Impmon was dancing around on the back of the seat, wearing Dirks sunglasses.
“You’d best calm down, Digimon aren’t exactly publicly known, and they still think its Godzilla’s buddies that have been wrecking Tokyo.” Dirk yelled back to Impmon. Impmon stopped and hit stop on the CD player. He then pressed a few buttons on the cd to get to the right part.
“To quote one of the greatest songs ever.” Said Impmon before hitting play. The sound of the song “Killing in the Name of.” Began to flow through the air “FUCK YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME! FUCK YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME! FUCK YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!” sang Impmon Pogoing, but then they came to a bump in the road and fell off of the back and hit the highway with a crack.
“IMPMON!!!” yelled Dirk. He had come so far and done too much to lose his partner to a damn lorry. Impmon had stumbled to his feet just in time to see said lorry coming towards him, but just before the lorry hit, he disappeared in a strange flash of light. “WHAT THE FUCK?!” yelled Dirk as he say it, shortly before he disappeared into a beam of light himself, that was when everything went white for Dirk.
“Wake up.” Said a voice, it had a soft British tone to it.
“Wow…” groaned Dirk. “Wha… what happ… IMPMON!!!” Dirk jumped to his feet, he was standing in a strange place, it resembled the inside of a fortune-tellers tent. He looked around and saw a person. He was wearing a solid gold helmet, a blue jumpsuit with white fancy arm-sleeves; he had a large red cape draped over his back. “who the shit are you… you look like Doctor Fate with the helmet and… but… oh wait, you’re Doctor Strangefate, from the Amalgamverse, those were some great comics-FUCK I FELL ASLEEP A THE WHEEL!!!” yelled Dirk before slapping himself across the face several times “WAKE UP YOU BASTARD!!!” he gave himself an especially hard slap and winced from the pain. “Ow… but you don’t feel pain in a dream… oh shit… you’re real… THEN WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO IMPMON, WHERE DID YOU PUT HIM AFTER YOU BEAMED HIM UP!!!”
“Right here.” Said Impmon, Dirk turned around and saw him in with a bunch of Grapes.
“Your Partner has come to no harm… but I have brought you here for a reason.” Said Doctor Strangefate. “Please, sit.” Dirk and Impmon sat down behind a small table and looked to see Strangefate sitting across from them.
“So who’s the nutjob in the helmet?” asked Impmon.
“He is Doctor Strangefate. Marvel and DC comics made a crossover universe that was inhabited by beings that are a cross between 2 beings, one from each universe; he’s the combination of Doctor Fate and Doctor Strange. He maintains the balance of the Amalgamverse…” Impmon looked at Dirk with a puzzled face. “I don’t get it either, I’m just assuming that you snuck LSD into my coffee… again.”
“Complain all you like, it was hilarious.” Said Impmon. “So, Helmet Head, what do you want from the 2 most powerful people in 2 worlds?” Strangefate looked at Impmon with a look that could melt ice.
“To put it simply, a Digimon of immense power is threatening the entire of Reality, not only your universe, but all of the universes. I cannot face the creature, it is taking all of my power to keep its plans at bay as we speak, so I am putting a team together that can fight it.” Said Strangefate as he looked at Dirk. “I thought it best to pick up someone that knows about Digimon to be in the team… but I am also picking up another from one of your Alternate realities.”
“Another Digidestined?” asked Dirk. He was wondering if it was one of the others.
“Yes.” Said Strangefate. “He should be appearing about now.” A trio of flashes from the ceiling and a man and 2 Insect Digimon dropped out of the sky.
“Ow…” said the man that had dropped down, he leaned up. “Oh… I think I got a concussion.”
“Who cares about you?” asked the FanBeemon that had dropped with him. “I hurt my posterior…”
“You’re posterior has needed a good hit for a while.” Said the Tentomon.
“Oh hahahaha.” Replied FanBeemon sarcastically. The man looked over to see Dirk, Impmon and Strangefate.
“Other Digidestined?” asked Richard. Dirk walked over and helped Richard to his feet.
“Yup, my partner here is Impmon.” He said. Impmon had gone to inspect the new Digimon.
“Right, you 2, let’s get one thing straight here, I am Impmon, and I am the leader here, I’m the best fighter in this, or any world.” He said flexing his puny muscles.
“Now see here, I will not take orders from one such as you.” Said FanBeemon.
“You don’t want to get her riled up.” Said Tentomon “I’ll never hear the last of it if you do.” Strangefate stepped forward.
“Calm down, we need to focus.” Said Strangefate. “Dirk Kleiner, this is Richard Freeman.” The 2 shook hands.
“Nice to meet you.” Said Dirk.
“Likewise.” Replied Richard. Another light appeared and a pair of beings fell to the ground. One was in large black armour and the other had long blond hair with a beard. Dirk went to help the one in armour and Richard ran over to the other man, his Paramedic training immediately kicking in. “Sir, are you alright, can you hear me.”
“I’m here…” said the man face-down. He steadily struggled to his feet. “Alright…” he rubbed his head “oooh… ow…” he then saw the face-down man in black armour. “ZEN-AKU, EVERYONE GET BACK!” he yelled “IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!” a white light surrounded him “WHITE STARFORCE RANGER!” he ran over to the man in black armour and pulled him off the ground, the man had a black mask in the shape of a wolves head and put him into an Arm-lock. “I got you now.”
“Oh really?” asked the one called Zen-Aku. He flipped the Ranger over him and onto the ground before backing off. The White Ranger got back up, they were about to attack again when Strangefate intervened.
“Stop it this instant.” Said Strangefate. “I can read both of your thoughts and I understand why you fight, but we have more pressing matters at hand for the moment.”
“What got you so riled up?” asked Richard. The White Ranger stared daggers at Zen-Aku.
“This man… is my heart.”
“Gay!” called Impmon from the back.
“Talking is a waste of time, he seems to think that I stole something from him… his heart… but I have no idea what he is talking about.” Said Zen-Aku. The 2 were about to charge when suddenly they both grabbed their heads in pain.
“I did not wish to do that, but it is the only way to make you see reason. I have just placed temporary mental blocks in your heads; any attempt to attack each other in my presence will result in severe pain.” Said Strangefate.
“Wait… I’ve read some of your comics… and if that guy is Doctor Strange and Doctor Fate combined… why can he mindfuck them… neither Strange nor Fate could.” Asked Impmon.
“Because in the Amalgamverse, it was Charles Xavier that uses the powers of both of them, we do not want to screw with him.” Whispered Dirk.
“What on earth are those creatures?” asked the White Ranger. He was now sitting on a bean-bag near the side of the tent. He pointed to the Digimon. “Are they some form of...? Organic Personal Zords?”
“These creatures are called Digimon.” Said Strangefate. “They are creatures of incredible power.”
“You cannot hold me hear Wizard.” Said Zen-Aku. “I have powerful beasts of my own.” He took out 3 perfectly round gems and slotted them into a strange flute-like device. “PREDAZORDS, COME TO ME.” He began to play. It was a soft melody.
“I assure you that where we are, your Predazords cannot reach us.” Said Strangefate.
“So what do you plan to do with me and him?” Asked Zen-Aku.
“All will be revealed in time.” Said Strangefate. “We still have more guests to arrive.” No sooner had he finished another being fell through the ceiling in a flash of light. This one had strange blond hair and wore a blue jumpsuit with some sort of body-armour, gloves and boots. This being slowly rolled over to face up and then leant up, when he saw several people, he immediately began to crawl backwards, obviously scared out of his mind. He hit the wall and sat there looking at everyone, he couldn’t have been much older than 15. Strangefate approached him.
“Do not fear, no-one is here to hurt you.” Strangefate reached into the boys mind and was greeted by a flow of anger, cruelty and sadism. A face and a horrible laugh. “Good god…” remarked Strangefate.
“Excuse me… sir.” Said Richard. “Please do not use the lord’s name in vain in front of me.” Strangefate was shaken by the being he had seen; this boy was the true personification of Jekyll and Hyde. He just hoped that the Jekyll could control the Hyde in the coming battle… or at the very least, aim it.
“Look… you don’t understand. You have to let me go… there’s… Toes… he will kill all of you if you don’t let me go.” Said the boy, he wasn’t saying it as a threat, the being called Toes was desperately trying to break free, if he succeeded, then it could spell disaster for everyone. Strangefate reached into the boys head again and set up another mental block. The boy calmed down.
“Don’t worry Toma… he cannot escape whilst I am here, I have sealed him in your mind for the time being.” Said Strangefate.
“How… how did you know my name?” asked Toma.
“I know a lot of things.” Replied the Doctor. “Including that another person in a similar position will be dropping in soon. Another person hit the floor shortly after. The person was immediately backed on his feet and looked around.
“Don’t worry everyone, I’m here now.” Said the man, he was wearing an X-men costume. He looked around “alright… I understand.” He said “so we all got kidnapped by him for some reason….” He pointed at Strangefate “That guy is nuts.” He pointed at Toma. “You two hate each other… but the guy in black stole the white guys heart, don’t worry, I won’t judge.” He said as he pointed at the White Ranger and Zen-Aku. “You two… have little monsters that you control.” He said as he pointed at Richard and Dirk was then hit in the head by a Badda-boom from Impmon.
“HEY, JERKWAD, I AM RUNNING THE SHOW!!! I CONTROL HIM!!!” Impmon very annoyed that he had been reduced to the level of pet. The X-man was unaffected by this, He then looked over at Strangefate. “Doctor Strangefate?” asked the X-man.
“You know him?” asked the White Ranger.
“Sort of… my Guru has shown me of pictures of him, he said that he had worked for Strangefate before.” Strangefate nodded.
“That is correct; you are Guru Jintu’s apprentice.” Said Strangefate.
“Yes.” Said the X-man. “And I must say that it is an honour to finally meet you sir.” Another flash and another man in black armour dropped from the ceiling. This armoured man immediately got up and looked around at everyone, he pointed his palm-mounted plasma cannons, first at Dirk and Richard, then at Strangefate and Toma, then at Zen-Aku and White Ranger, then finally pointed both of them at the X-Man.
“One of Xavier’s men.” He muttered as he saw the costume.
“What’s it to you metal man?” asked the X-man. “I’m Dozer of the X-Men and you are just some Iron Man wannabe.”
“I don’t have time for this.” Muttered the Iron Man being, he began to walk away when he was stopped by Strangefate. “Get out of my way before I crush you.” Said the Iron Man.
“That will not work.” Said Strangefate. “You cannot leave, and even if you could, you would only be walking to your death. There is a being of unimaginable power that could potentially destroy Reality as we know it.
“I don’t care.” Said the Iron Man “all that means is that Stark dies.”
“Yes it does… but Stark won’t die by your hand and he will never know what he did to you.” Said Strangefate. The Iron Man put his hand to Strangefates face and the cannon began to glow. Strangefate simply stared the Iron suited man down. The man let his hand drop.
“And now the last person from your dimension.” Said Strangefate, then a person with orange skin, red hair and wings dropped down and landed on one knee.
“What a strange event…” said the orange man. He looked down to see Impmon playing with his wings; Impmon had one of the bottom feathers and was waving it back and forth.
“Dude, I think you’ve been tangoed.” said Impmon. The man picked up Impmon and span around with the Digimon in his arms.
“Greetings small creature.” He then stopped and put Impmon down. “And Greetings to all of you!” he said with his arms flung wide.
“Ok… what’s this guy on? I think his doc prescribed a little too much Prozac” laughed Impmon. “I love this guy.” The man grabbed Impmon from behind and hugged him.
“And I love you to small creature.” Said the Orange man.
“AAAHHH, STRANGER DANGER, STRANGER DANGER!” yelled Impmon. Dirk walked over to the man.
“I apologise for him, he’s a moron.”
“Rich coming from you.” Said Impmon as he wriggled out of the orange man’s grasp.
“The last of the team will be dropping in any second.” Said Strangefate. A flash and a man in strange robes fell from the sky. He landed on his feet just as the orange man had. He looked around and saw several people.
“What in the name of the force?” asked the man.
“Hey, it’s Luke Skywalker.” Said Impmon.
“Who?” asked the man. He thought “I do know of Knight Anakin Skywalker… but I do not know him personally.”
“be calm Jedi Knight.” Said Strangefate as he floated over to the Knight. “This is a matter bigger than the Jedi Order, the Separatists and the Sith. This threatens the whole of Reality, we will need your abilities in the force in order to save Reality.” He then turned to the rest of them. “That goes to all of you. You will all need to work together in order to bring down this opponent.”
“Who’s team leader?” Asked Dozer.
“That would be Richard.” He said pointing at the Paramedic. Richards eyes widened.
“Um… no, no, I can’t lead a team.” He said.
“You are best suited to it, the creature that you face is a Digimon.” Said Strangefate.
“I’m a Paramedic, I follow orders, not give them.” Said Richard.
“And what are we?” asked Impmon pointing to himself and Dirk. Dirk kicked Impmon lightly on the leg.
“Shut up, we can’t lead these guys.” Said Dirk.
“Grow a pair and man up.” Replied Impmon.
“I would not wish to ask you to lead.” Said Strangefate. “Considering your past experience, or lack thereof. You two are known for brashness, you aren’t leader material.”
“If he was chosen to have a Digimon, then that makes him Leader material.” Said Richard, hoping that Strangefate wouldn’t notice the his contradictory statement, and really just wanting Dirk to lead.
“Fine…” sighed Strangefate. ”But be it on your own heads.”
The beings that Strangefate stood looking at him. “Let us begin.” Said Strangefate. His eyes glowed gold and they were all suddenly floating through space. “You are now all linked in my mind; this is the easiest way to show you.” Suddenly they floated around a large creature; its body was shaped like a Polyhedron. “This is Apocalymon.” Said Strangefate. “One of the most powerful of Digimon… but he is not the main problem.” Suddenly a flash of light and Doctor Strangefate appeared in front of the creature. “I sensed the creature’s intent to cause your Dimension to implode” he pointed at Dirk “This would potentially lead to the destruction of other Dimensions, I decided to step in… this is what happened.” They all looked to see Strangefate staring down Apocalymon.
“FOUL CREATURE, YOU SEEK THE DESTRUCTION OF EXISTANCE, I CANNOT ALLOW THIS. SURRENDER OR BE DESTROYED.” Yelled Strangefate.
“You dare to insult a god?” asked Apocalymon. “I AM SUFFERING, I AM PAIN AND DEATH!!! I AM THE OMEGA, I WILL END EVERYTHING!!!”
“Then I have no choice.” Said Strangefate. A large Ankh appeared and immense fire burst out of it and blasted Apocalymon. He then teleported a short distance before sending several thunder bolts at the creature. Another Ankh appeared above the creature and a mega-beam shot out, blasting the creature. As the smoke cleared, it was clear that Apocalymon had survived. Strangefate was stood confused for a second, but it only took a second for Apocalymons lightning fast Claw to lash out and drain the power from Strangefate. The claw released Strangefate and floated powerless. Meanwhile, Apocalymon began to glow.
“THIS POWER!!! THIS POWER IS AMAZING!!!” it yelled. “MODE CHANGE!!!” it then shifted down into its demonic form, the head, body and arms looking the same as it had before. But it now had a cape similar to Strangefate and a pair of legs similar to his. It had two large shoulder pads with its energy draining claws in them. It gave an evil grin before looking at Strangefate and extending its hand “And now you are of no further use.” A black Ankh appeared in front of his hand and blasted Strangefate, but luckily the Doctor had teleported away shortly before the blast hit him.
“And so you see, Apocalymon now my power as well as his own.”
“And you are one of the most powerful beings in existence… HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BEAT IT?!?” yelled Dirk.
“Most of your powers are completely unknown to it. Whereas we know all of its power, which gives us an advantage.”
“My White Dragonzord will take it apart.” Said White Ranger.
“Your White Dragonzord is nothing compared to my Predazords.” Replied Zen-Aku. White Ranger and Zen-Aku both grabbed their heads in pain, thanks to Strangefate’s mental blocks, as they both tried to hit the other.
“Your Zords may indeed be powerful, but without the assistance of everyone else here, they will be all but useless against the creature.” Said Strangefate. They then snapped back to reality. Strangefate looked around at the team, he was confident that this team could defeat Apocalymon… but they would need a true leader, and whereas Richard was the smart option, he had refused it leaving Dirk as the next best option… but Dirk was not Leader material, and Strangefate knew that getting these people to work together was going to be an all-uphill battle, he needed someone to teach these people to be a team. “Alright… I can see that this team has troubles. Half of you are Loners… so I have made the decision to bring in a new member of the team.” His eyes glowed and a few seconds later, someone else fell from the ceiling, the Orange man floated over to her and picked her up.
“Come on, onto your feet.” Said the Orange Man. The person he picked up was a green squid-girl; she wore tight combat clothing and had a strange green gauntlet on her right arm. “Are you alright madam?” asked the Orange Man. The woman grabbed his arm and spun him around into an arm-lock.
“Who are you and why did you bring me here?” she asked. She then saw everyone else. “Crap.” She kicked the Orange man away with a back-flip and landed before pressing a button on her Gauntlet, a dial popped up and she slapped it back down and after a flash of green light, she reappeared as a plant creature.
Her hand burst into flames. “Alright, you all back away.” She said. Strangefate floated over to her and quickly scanned her brain.
“Don’t worry, Kyzan, we are not with Vilgax or any of your enemies.”
“Oh yeah, and why should I believe you?” she asked.
“Because of this.” Said Strangefate, he put his hand on Kyzans head and his eyes glowed. “I will show you exactly what I showed the others.” Kyzan changed back to her squid form. After about a minute, they broke their connection and Kyzan looked at Strangefate.
“Alright… but I may need a little more firepower.” She said.
“I have already talked with Azmuth; he says that for this mission, he is willing to give you master control until the end of this crisis.” Without a second thought, Kyzan spoke
“Deal, I’ve always wanted to play with the Master Control.” She said. Strangefate nodded and his eyes glowed, a gold beam shot from the forehead of the Helmet of Fate into the Ultimatrix, it whirred for a few seconds before speaking.
“Master control unlocked” said the Ultimatrix.
“So many lovely new toys…” she said, her eyes beaming. She then looked at everyone else “Alright, I’ll whip you boys into shape.” She said, she then looked at the Orange man. “First things first, we all need to get acquainted… what’s his name?”
“I dunno.” Said Dirk “I know he’s Richard and that guy is Doctor Strangefate… that’s about it.”
The entire group was now in a large desert. “Where are we?” asked the X-Man.
“This is Earth… Earth 8294448, one of the many dead earths. On this planet, after the Dinosaurs were destroyed, no other life evolved. We are going to train here because we don’t need to worry about wrecking it.” Said Strangefate. He then looked at Kyzan. “I leave them in your capable hands, I am going to try and buy you as much time as I can.” He said before disappearing into a golden energy Ankh. Then a voice was heard in everyone’s heads “Oh, and I almost forgot, your Zords.” Several flashes of light later and they were all surrounded with new things. Zen-Aku had his Predazords behind him; the White Ranger had his White Dragonzord as well. It roared and then shrunk down to the size of a large dog.
“It was foolish to give me and him our Zords back.” Said Zen-Aku. “We could just rip each other’s throats out.”
“Try it and you’ll feel that pain again.” Said Strangefates voice. Zen-Aku simply looked at his feet in response.
“Alright, first things first, Circle time, everyone in a circle.” Said Kyzan. Everyone complied. “Alright, you go first.” She said pointing at the man in black Iron Man armour.
“I don’t have time for this, teach us or get out of my way.” Replied the man.
“Not a talker hmm?” she asked. She turned the dial of the Ultimatrix and slapped the panel of it. She then transformed into a giant green, black and white, bi-pedal blob creature
“Now, let’s see what you look like without that armour.” She said. The blob creature then jumped onto the Black Iron Man suit and the entire of it became black with green wires running through it.
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING, GET OFF OF ME, DIO… WHY WON’T YOU MOVE!!!” yelled the Black Suited man. The suit then peeled back on itself and revealed the pilot. He had long brown hair and green eyes.
“Hey, Dirk, he looks like you.” Said Impmon. The man looked around the group and stopped in fear, his hands seemed to try move over his body, as though trying to cover himself as though naked.
“Alright, I’ll tell you, just give me back my suit.” He said to the blob, a slight hint of fear in his voice.
“Get talkin’.” Said Kyzan.
“Alright, my Name is Jake Kimoko. My mum was Hitomi Kimoko, my Father was Tony Stark. He promised her the world, he gave her a son, me, and then left her, she died of a broken heart, now I’m out to kill Stark. Now give me back my suit.” He said, speaking very fast.
“How’d you get the suit?” asked the X-Man.
“Terrorists stole it from Stark, I took it from them. THE SUIT… PLEASE!!!” he yelled.
“Alright… get in.” she said. The man stepped into the suit and the top closed over him. “Alright, I want a go.” She said. The suit closed around him and the hand was put into the air, a Green beam lanced into the air.
“Wow… the suit is super-charged… it doesn’t normally have this much power.” Said Jake. The suit then launched into the air and the arm transformed into a large blade. It slashed at the air several times before the arm transformed into a Bazooka before firing a rocket it exploded with large Green flames. The suit then landed.
“Well… that was amazing.” Said Kyzan as she jumped off of the suit and transformed back into her Squid form. “Well… Jake, it’s nice to have you aboard.” She said. “Alright, Orange man… you next.” She said.
“Very well.” Said the man. He stood up and flung his arms open before bowing “Greetings to all of you, my name is Norso Vash; my mother is from Tamaran, My Father from Thanagar. They made me, and I am now a member of the Legion of Super-Hero’s. Just call me by my Hero name: The Comet.” he said.
“Ok, why are you so happy?” asked Impmon. “Does your kind secrete LSD or something?”
“We Tamaranians are beings that love. We all love one another.” He grabbed Impmon and hugged him again. “I Love you.” He then went around hugging everyone. Everyone looked awkwardly around at everyone else. “I promise to fight for everyone to defeat Apocalymon.” He said.
Kyzan shook placed her hand to her face. “Ok… right, next…” she pointed to the White Ranger. “You… go.” She said. The White Ranger got up and looked at everyone. “My name is Jan of Triforia. My planet is one that naturally wish to help others. It is how we are born, it is how we are Raised, I joined the Starforce Rangers to accomplish this… we were all trained by former Rangers, I was trained by Merrik Baliton… the Lunar Wolf Ranger. He was the first Zen-Aku.” Zen-Aku tutted and looked away.
“Bullshit.” He muttered under his breath. Jan took no notice.
“One day, the mask of Zen-Aku was stolen. I and Merrick went after the guy that stole the mask. He easily wiped the floor with us… My species, when we are badly damaged, we split into our 3 major components… Courage, Wisdom and Heart. Merrick managed to knock the Mask from the man’s grasp. Merrick told us to take it and run, we grabbed it… then Heart saw Merrick being killed, Courage and Wisdom tried to stop him… but… he put the mask on… and became him.” He pointed to a spot on the ground where Zen-Aku had been but had walked away.
“I’ll go get him.” Said Comet. He flew into the air and after Zen-Aku.
“So anyway, Zen-Aku defeats the guy, Merrick tries to fight Zen-Aku, but he was badly wounded in the fight and didn’t stand a chance against the Org, that’s what Zen-Aku’s kind are called. Zen-Aku took his Wildzord gems and took control of them… I’ve been trying to hunt him down ever since.” Finished Jan.
“Alright… nice story, but we need you two to fight the enemy in this battle, not each other, can you leave him until after Apocalymon is dealt with?” asked Kyzan.
“Yes… I will ignore him until then.” Said Jan.
“No he won’t.” said the X-Man. “I read minds; he’s thinking that if he gets the chance, he’s going to take out Zen-Aku and re-claim his heart from the beast that stole it.”
“GAY!!!” yelled Impmon again. Kyzan walked over to Impmon and clonked him on the head. “Ow, I think I’m in love.” Said Impmon as she walked. Dirk sent him a funny look. Kyzan noted the look and stared Dirk directly in the face.
“Something wrong with that?” she asked.
“No… nothing wrong...” he replied, obviously scared of her. He was convinced that she was going to break his arm. She simply walked back over to Jan. as she walked; Impmon punched Dirk in the leg.
“You need to put aside your hatred of him… IF YOU JEOPARDISE THE SAFETY OF ANYONE IN THIS TEAM, I WILL PERSONALLY GOUGE YOUR EYES OUT AND SKULL-FUCK YOU!!!” She yelled. Impmon punched Dirks leg 3 more times.
“Do I make myself clear?” she asked. Jan gave her a worried look.
“Alright…” he said. She looked at the X-Man. He nodded. “Right, you next.” She said. The X-man straightened his uniform and stepped forwards.
“Wait, we should wait until that Zen-Aku guy gets back.” Said Richard.
“Alright, take 5.” Said Kyzan. “I need a drink.” Meanwhile, Comet had finally caught up with Zen-Aku.
“Greetings Zen-Aku.” Said Comet.
“Leave me alone.” Replied Zen-Aku.
“Why are you leaving?” asked Comet.
“Because I cannot stand to be around that man for another second.”
“Will you stop asking so many questions?” asked Zen-Aku.
“Why do you want me to stop?” Zen-Aku swung around with his leg and tried to kick Comet, but Comet was fast and managed to jump over Zen-Aku before he felt something, he looked down to see Comet hugging him. Zen-Aku sighed.
“Look… Get off.” He said a little more passively. He pushed Comet lightly, he didn’t have the heart to hurt this poor kid, he was a competent fighter, but was obviously out of his mind. “If I promise to come back with you, will you get off of me?” asked Zen-Aku.
“No, I want you to calm down and stop being so aggressive.”
“Fine… just get off of me.” Said Zen-Aku. Comet let go of Zen-Aku.
“Well then, I now officially consider you my friend Zen-Aku.” Said Comet, Zen-Aku tutted.
“I don’t believe in friendship between Orgs and Humans.” Said Zen-Aku.
“That’s alright, because I’m not human.” Said Comet as he hugged Zen-Aku’s front.
“Look, you promised to stop hugging me.” Said Zen-Aku. Comet let go and stepped back. Zen-Aku sighed and grabbed Comets head and brought him into his chest “This never happened.” He said.
“I understand.” Said Comet as he hugged Zen-Aku. The pair walked back to Group.
“Nice to see you re-join us.” Said Kyzan. “So we already know your story.” She said to Zen-Aku. “Right, big guy, you’re up.” She said.
“Well, there’s not much to tell… I was born in Scotland… I was always obsessed with magic… got kicked out of home when they found out I was a mutant… I went around the world looking for Magic items and in Cambodia, I found this.” He took a blood-red gem out of a pouch on his belt. “The Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, I used it to gain the power of Cyttorak, The God of Destruction. I then spent a while with him in the driver’s seat, destroying everything along the way. In India, I met my Master, he was a Guru and a master Telepath, he taught me how to create mental blocks that keep me in the driver’s seat of my powers. So then he told me about Charles Xavier and… I went and joined the X-Men… and here I am.”
“Alright.” Said Kyzan. “Now, you… the quiet one.” She pointed to the boy sitting at the back in the foetal position; he slowly looked around at Kyzan.
“I am Saiyan…” he said slowly. “There is nothing else to say.”
“What’s the matter little Toma?” asked a voice. “Afraid to tell them about me.”
“I am not afraid of you…” replied Toma. He then felt a strong hand grab his throat and pick him up, everyone else saw this as well in total shock. Toma looked at his evil self as it picked him up; it was a much larger version of itself with large muscles, large golden hair, blank eyes and a sinister grin. He was easily 9 foot tall.
“OF COURSE YOU FEAR ME, YOU REAK OF FEAR!!! IF THAT MAN HADN’T PUT THIS BLOCK UP, THEN I WOULD BE IN FULL CONTROL!!! AND YOU FEAR THAT THE MOST!!!”
“Please… Toes…” coughed Toma “Let me go…”
“GIVE ME CONTROL AND I WILL STOP HURTING YOU!!!”
“I won’t.” replied Toma. Suddenly a large hand was placed on Toes arm. Toes saw that the hand belonged to the Bexley.
“I’m using a Telepathic link to see, hear and touch you. Drop him before I drop you.” Said Bexley.
“And what makes you think I cannot crush you like an insect.” Asked Toes.
“Because I have the protection of Cyttorak… the God of Destruction… this protection has been shown to allow users to survive supernovas. Crushing me would be difficult… plus I can terminate the link and re-establish it at any time, meaning that I can kick the shit out of you and you would find it would be nigh impossible for you to hurt me, even if you land a hit.”
“Ok, so both of them are nuts… have they been licking the orange guy?” asked Impmon. No-one else was able to see Toes. Toes in the mean-time lashed out with his fist and his punch hit Bexley right in the face, everyone heard the sound of Fist against face and everyone looked fearful. Bexley didn’t move an inch. Toes was taken aback a little before Bexley punched him in the gut. Toes didn’t move either, but showed a little physical discomfort. Bexley’s eyes flickered Red as Cyttorak’s whispers told him to destroy everything, but the mental blocks were able to barely drown them out.
“DON’T TRY AND FIGHT A GOD!!!” roared Bexley. Toes seethed and disappeared.
“I will get you when the time is right…” Toma heard from Toes voice. Toma immediately ran over to Bexley and hugged him.
“Thank you… He would have taken over again… and he would have killed everyone.” Bexley looked at Comet and mouthed the words ‘will you get him off of me?’ to him. Comet walked over and took Toma away from Bexley and the two walked away from the group.
“Yeah… that guy’s nuts, we need to ask Strangefate to get him off of the team.” Said Bexley.
“Well from the looks of things we cannot contact the Doctor for the moment.” Said Kyzan. “Ok, you in the funny cloths, you haven’t said a word.” She said to Shama.
“I’m sorry but… I have no earthly idea what’s going on… I can feel all of your presence in the Force… so you are real… but I fear that I may have finally lost my mind, I knew that it would lead me down the dark path... but I never thought that Sith really saw the world like this… no wonder they want to destroy everything…” said Shama.
“Hey, you and me both.” Said Richard putting his arm around Shama’s shoulder. “Especially when I met Tentomon and FanBeemon.”
“That is Lady FanBeemon to you.” Said FanBeemon as she landed on Richards shoulder between Shama and Richards heads.
“And now there is a giant talking Bee.” Said Shama. “I need to meditate before what little Sanity remains me decides to leave.” He turned around and looked down to see Tentomon.
“Hello.” Said Tentomon, waving to the Jedi. Shama sat down and crossed his legs and closed his eyes.
“Ah, a meditator.” Said Bexley, he walked over and sat down next to Shama. “Do you mind if I join you?” he asked. Shama gave him a funny look.
“I wouldn’t stop you.” Said Shama. The two closed their eyes. Bexley then got a slap around the head from Kyzan.
“FOCUS!” she yelled. “WE HE HAVE A PSYCHOPATH IN OUR TEAM!!!”
“Yes we do.” Said the voice of Toma. Kyzan looked around and saw him with Comet. Bexley got up and looked at him.
“Comet, you were supposed to take him away.” Said Bexley
“I did, but he wanted to come back and talk with you so I…” everyone was looking quite annoyed at him. “I will never get the hang of Human Secrecy.” He sighed “Look, my people don’t really keep secrets.”
“No, it’s alright.” Said Kyzan. She then looked at Toma. “Alright… we need to talk to the crazy one of you.”
“But… I can’t… he’ll kill you all.” Replied Toma.
“I can physically restrain him.” Said Bexley.
“I’ve seen Juggernauts stats.” Said Dirk “if you’re about as strong as Marko… you should be able to do it.” He looked around as everyone looked at him confused “Yeah, you see, in my universe, you are all just fictional characters. You three are from Comics.” He pointed to Jake, Jim and Comet. “You two are from an American port of a Japanese show that got ported back to japan… it’s long and complicated, you don’t want to know.” he said pointing at Zen-Aku and Jan. “you are from… I don’t know what you are from… some American cartoon that I heard about once, Blakes 7 or something…” he said pointing at Kyzan. “And you are from one of the most nerdish things on the planet, Star Wars… but I love Star Wars.” Dirk said to Shama. “And you, my deranged friend, are from Dragonball… and all I want to know is… could Goku beat up Superman?”
“Who’s Goku… and who is Superman?” asked Toma.
“Superman can’t be beaten.” Said Comet. Dirk didn’t pay attention.
“Of course, you would know him as Kakarot.”
“I know several people called Kakarot, it’s a common boys name on Vegeta.”
“The Prince, the Planet or the King?” asked Impmon before he got a clonk on the head from Dirk.
“But… the King’s name is Jalpen… not Vegeta.” Replied Toma.
“So… you are from a different time from the rest of Dragonball… and since you come from the planet Vegeta that means the past.” Said Dirk. “Anyway, where were we?” Dirk got a clonk on the head from Kyzan.
“FOCUS!!! There is a mad-man living in his head.” Said Kyzan “And we are going to have to let it loose on Apocalymon.”
“Alright.” Said Dirk. “Well why don’t you just get Juggs there to put up a force-field around the two of them when we release it?”
“Because I can’t put up Force Fields.” Replied Bexley.
“Sure you can, Marko did it all the time… but they were invisible ones, its half the reason that you are indestructible.” Said Dirk.
“Well, it’s worth a shot.” Said Bexley.
Everyone was gathered around Toma, Bexley had him in an arm-lock. And a shield was around them. “You ready in there?” asked Kyzan.
“No.” replied both Bexley and Toma at the same time.
“Good, let’s get going then.” She said. “Let him out.”
“RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!” yelled Impmon. Toma’s eyes closed and his hair began to slowly rise and turning from blond to gold. His eyes then opened to reveal them to be completely blank; his muscles then seemed to explode out of him. Growing to be a little taller than the fully powered up Bexley.
“Oh sweet Jesus.” Said Dirk “Yeah, he’s not a Super Saiyan…” said Dirk taking several steps backwards “He’s a Legendary Super Saiyan…”
“The difference being?” asked Bexley.
“Legendary Super Saiyans are known for wiping out universes… but they are only born every 1000 ye… oh he’s from the past… yeah, definitely run.” Said Dirk.
“Hey, you said we’d be safe behind that shield.” Said Kyzan.
“HOW THE HELL WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW HE WAS LEGENDARY?” yelled Dirk. The transformation finished and Toes stood looking around at them.
“So… you rang?” sneered Toes.
“We need you.” Said Kyzan.
“Of course you do baby, you look like you could use a good riding.” Laughed the Legendary Super Saiyan. “Tell you what, you let me out of here and I’ll make you my little Bitch, then I won’t kill you.”
“Tempting, but no.” said Kyzan sarcastically. She was afraid of him though; that Dirk kid seemed to know what he was talking about, knowing Bexley’s powers better than he did. If worst came to worst, she could use Alien X… it was risky, but they were possibly the most powerful beings in the entire of Existence, powers matching that of God himself, it’s just getting them to do anything that is the trouble. She had accidently used it once and it took 2 weeks to convince the other 2 personalities to change back to her, in the meantime, the rest was simply arguments. “We have a deal for you.”
“A Deal? Let me guess, you want to surrender now under the proviso that I don’t fuck you in the ass?”
“I have to say that you are a vile pig and if your services weren’t needed then I would transform into a To’Kustar and squash you like a bug.”
“You are most welcome.” Sneered Toes.
“Now, as we understand it, you like killing things.” Said Kyzan.
“Oh I most certainly do. I think I’ll kill the kid first.” He pointed to Dirk “Then the quiet one.” He pointed to the still meditating Shama. “Then the Gay ones.” He pointed at White Ranger and Zen-Aku.
“HA!” was heard from Impmon.
“And I think I’ll leave the orange one till last.”
“Anyway, you like killing things and you like a challenge.”
“Wouldn’t know, never had one.” Said Toes.
“Well then now’s a good chance, to do it. This guy we are going up against has powers that even you would be blown away against.”
“Hah, you’re lying because nothing is stronger than me, but I’ll humour you.”
“You help us beat it, and then return Toma to control.”
“Alright.” Said Toes.
“Wow… seriously?” asked Kyzan.
“Of course, I want a challenge.” He said. Their eyes met and at that point, both of them knew that he wasn’t going to keep his word and give Toma back the control.
“Alright.” She said. She was confident that Strangefate could seal him away again. Something that she bet that he wasn’t counting on.
“Well then, have the runt back since you want him so badly.” Said Toes. He then shrunk back down to Toma who fell on his face, drained from the experience.
“Well…” began Dirk. “That went better than expected.”
“But what happens now?” asked Bexley.
“We continue with the introductions.” Said Kyzan. “I need to know everyones powers before I can make a strategy.”
“But I thought we were in charge.” Said Impmon. He then got a clonk on the head from Dirk.
“She’s taking over because I want us to live.” Dirk laughed nervously.
“Alright, now it’s just him and you two that has to speak.” Said Kyzan as she pointed at Shama and then to Richard and Dirk.
“Alright.” Said Shama getting to his feet. “I won’t bore you all with details, so let’s just say that my name is Shama Fredur, I am a Jedi and I have power over the Force.”
“What’s the Force?” asked Comet.
“It’s a force like Gravity, generally a form of Deus Ex Machina in the Star Wars universe. Some people speculate it to be something like God, as a Jedi, he taps into that power to use what most of us would consider Magic.” Said Dirk.
“You are a Gigantic Nerd.” Said Bexley.
“But that is an… apt description of it.” Said Shama. A few Jedi I know believe it to be Sentient. But I personally…” he shook his head.
“So when are you from, what war is going on at the moment, or when was the last war?” asked Dirk.
“Currently the Clone Wars are raging.” Said Shama.
“Well then it don’t matter if Apocalymon kills him then.” Said Impmon.
“Why?” asked Shama. Dirk grabbed Impmons mouth and laughed nervously again.
“Because my partner here is a moron who you should pay no attention to.” He then whispered into Impmons ear “Shut the hell up, he isn’t supposed to know about the Great Purge.”
“But I am curious, what colour is your Lightsaber?” asked Bexley. “I have to say that I love the films and I have always wanted a Lightsaber.” Shama pulled his Lightsaber out of his belt and ignited it to reveal the Green blade.
“Cool.” Said Kyzan. “Alright then, you two.” She pointed at Dirk and Richard. Dirk stepped back and let Richard Speak.
“My name is Richard, I’m a Paramedic living in Tokyo with my two partners Tentomon and FanBeemon, I was born in Jolly old England and I moved over to Tokyo to get a foreign education. i served for a short time in the British Territorial Army and am hoping to return their one day as a fully licensed Field-medic.” He said. “My Partners can each Digivolve to their Mega Forms.” He held out his Digivice. The pair of Insect Digimon began glowing. Tentomon digivolved into GranKuwagamon
“GranKuwagamon.” Said the giant Insect Digimon. FanBeemon digivolved into TigerVespamon.
“TigerVespamon” said the giant bee.
“Wait, you can use the Mega Form without Biomerging?” asked Dirk.
“What’s Biomerging?” asked Richard.
“This.” Dirk and Impmon began glowing before becoming Beelzemon. “And now I am Beelzemon.
“So… you Fuse with your Digimon to achieve a greater form? Amazing.” Said Richard.
“Ok, but what’s your story then?” asked Jan. Beelzemon split back down into Impmon and Dirk.
“Alright, well, one day I was walking to School, then suddenly, I saw these two Digimon fighting in the Park, I rushed over and found Impmon in his Champion Form, Devimon.”
“Well, you see, there had been hundreds of them, Pineapple head here shows up just as I’m takin’ out the last guy.” Began Impmon.
“Anyway, I met him, the opponent knocked him down and then we Biomerged into Beelzemon and we took him out with one bullet right between the eyes.” Said Dirk. “well then oh glorious leader, what’s your story?” Kyzan looked around at everyone, even Zen-Aku seemed slightly curious. She took a deep breath and then exhaled.
“My name is Kyzan, I am a Chimera Sui Generis, I come from the planet Vilgaxia. My planet was ruled by a Tyrant called Vilgax, a lot of my people supported him, loved him… but there was a lot of us that saw him for what he really was… a Dictator. So we cobbled together a Resistance and started fighting back against his Robotic forces… we built up a lot of steam… then he stopped seeing us as anything more than a distraction to get revenge on some human kid. He systematically slaughtered each and every one of us... when it came turn for my Cell. I ran, he hunted everyone down… I was the last one on his list. But then I found this.” She pulled her arm up to reveal the Ultimatrix. “This little beauty is the Ultimatrix. It allows me to transform into any alien life-form it knows about and then use their abilities to my own advantage. But then I can evolve them even further to make them perfect.” She said. She then looked around at everyone.
“Alright, let’s sort out our teams then.” Said Kyzan. “Since there are 10 of us. We will split into teams two teams of 5. I’ll take Jan, Zen-Aku, Bexley and Jake. Dirk, you take the others. You lot will be working together. I want you all to go off about 5 miles that way, we’ll do the same. So try and find out how best to use each other’s abilities.” She then handed him a small device “that is a tracker, so I will know exactly where you are at all times.” She said. Everyone split into their respective Groups and they began to walk in the opposite direction to the other team.
The time had come. The group now stood in a circle around Kyzan “Well team… I think we have made real headway, it’s a shame that a few of us are probably gonna die.” She said.
“I plan to live forever.” Said Richard.
“Good attitude.” Said Kyzan. “Now we are ready for whatever Apocalymon throws at us.” At that point, Strangefate appeared just outside of the circle in a bright flash of gold. He was on one knee.
“Don’t tell us that he got you again!” Sighed Kyzan.
“Fortunately, he was unable to steal any more power… but I am no longer able to fight… I will send you to him. After our battle, he is slightly weakened; this is the best time for you to strike.” Said Strangefate. He put his hand out and a Golden Ankh appeared on the ground next to himself. “This will take you to him… now go.” Strangefate then collapsed on the floor. Bexley put his hand on Toma’s shoulder and lead him to the portal.
“You know what, I don’t think I can go through with this, what if Toes kills everyone?” asked Toma.
“Well, you don’t have to go through with it if you don’t want to…” Said Bexley, he then gave him a swift boot to the back and sent the young Saiyan through. “Is what I’d like to say, but we don’t have that luxury.”
“Thank you.” Kyzan sighed in relief, she didn’t want to have to be seen comforting the sad little warrior. Impmon walked over to Bexley and simply said
“I already called Dibs.” Before walking back to Dirk. Comet, Jan, Zen-Aku, Jake and Shama all walked through the portal. Dirk and Impmon were about to walk through when he looked back to see Richard bent over Strangefate trying to assess the damage.
“Come on, he’ll be fine.” Said Kyzan.
“It’s my duty as a doctor to make sure of that before I go anywhere.” Replied Richard. Dirk walked over and put a hand on his shoulder.
“Look, I know about Strangefate, he’s just resting, he’s got healing powers that will easily cure all of these wounds within the hour. I guarantee it.” Said Dirk. Richard looked up at Dirk and smiled. Impmon, FanBeemon and Tentomon simply stared.
“Get a Room.” Yelled Impmon, he then got a clonk on the head from Tentomon.
“Thank you Tentomon.” Said Dirk.
“My pleasure.” Replied Tentomon. The Digimon and their tamers walked through the portal, leaving Bexley with Kyzan staring at the abyss.
“So… we’re probably gonna die… aren’t we?” asked Bexley.
“Good chance, considering how powerful Strangefate is.” Replied Kyzan.
“So I’m gonna give us a reason to come back. If you and I come back alive, you owe me dinner.” He said.
“Dinner… you want to take the Squid-Girl out for dinner.”
“Trust me, you are not the weirdest thing I have ever been attracted to…” Bexley stopped as he realized what he had just said “… that… that came out wrong.” He stammered.
“Mhmm, yes it did.” Replied Kyzan with a slightly unamused, yet understanding look on her face.
“Well, how about a smooch for good luck.” He said. Kyzan put her arms on his shoulder and Bexley closed his eyes and puckered up, but she simply gave him a kick to the face and sent him backwards through the portal. She then jumped through the portal herself.
The Team landed in a strange city, cars lined the street they were rusted as all hell and vines were growing everywhere. Kyzan looked at the Ultimatrix “No signs of intelligent life… on the whole planet…” she said in confusion.
“Probably one of the destroyed Alterna-Earths. Strangefate may have forced him here.” Said Dirk.
“SO STRANGEFATE HAS SENT HIS CHAMPIONS!?!?!?” boomed a deep and eerie voice. “BUT IT WILL NOT DO REALITY ANY GOOD! IT WILL STILL FALL!” Everyone looked to see Apocalymon slowly walking towards them.
“Come on, you can’t beat all of us, just give up and we’ll take it easy on you.” Said Dozer. Apocalymon didn’t answer, it just kept walking towards them. Dozer put a finger to his head “Alright, Toma, now your big friend can come out to play.” He said
“That’s it.” Said Kyzan pressing the Safety-release on the Ultimatrix. “SUIT UP!!!”
(Writers note: this is the music that goes along with this sequence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZeglDY3aHg&t=0m38s
Kyzan cycled through the options until she came to a large Dinosaur creature. She slapped the dial and transformed into the large Dinosaur creature. “HUMUNGOUSAUR!!!” she yelled.
Zen-Aku drew his curved sword and flourished it. “Zen-Aku: Duke Org.”
“It’s Morphin’ Time!” yelled Jan in a flash; he had transformed “White Starforce Ranger.”
Jakes armour moved about a little bit to be a little more combat effective “Shadow Angel.”
Toma braced his body before he transformed into his Super-Saiyan mode. He didn’t want to let Toes out, Just yet. “Toma, Legendary Super Saiyan!”
Bexley braced his body as well before his Juggernaut armour appeared over his X-Men uniform. “Dozer, the Avatar of Cyttorak.”
Shama dropped his cloak and drew his Lightsaber and flourished it before pointing it at Apocalymon, this was his fighting stance. “Shama Fredur, Jedi Knight!”
Norso’s hands and eyes glowed green. “Comet, Legion of Superhero’s.”
Richard put his digivice out in front of his belt and thrust it in front of him.
“Tentomon, Warp Digivolve to, GranKuwagamon”
“FanBeemon, Warp Digivolve to, TigerVespamon.”
Dirk grabbed his Digivice and put it in front of him ‘BIOMERGE ACTIVATE’ it said on the screen. He and Impmon fused into Beelzemon. “Beelzemon, Demon Lord of Gluttony.”
The team stood looking at him, weapons drawn they each flurried their weapons before a large explosion of many different colours blasted out behind them. “WHAT THE SHIT WAS THAT?!?!?” yelled Beelzemon as he looked around.
“Don’t know, sometimes that happens.” Said Jan.
“Often?” asked Shama
“Exceedingly.” Replied Zen-Aku. Without warning, Apocalymons chain-claws shot out at the group, they all rolled and jumped clear. The claws ripped up the pavement as they impacted. Dozer set off at a full speed charge whilst Toma threw several Ki balls at the Digimon, Shadow Angel blasted the being with his palm mounted plasma cannons as Comet threw several of his energy balls and Beelzemon fired off several shots from his Berenjena’s. The rest of them also ran in just after the blasts impacted and smoke was thrown up, before the charge could reach him, the smoke cleared to reveal him standing there, the first to reach him was Dozer who hit him with punch to the chest before jumping past him, and delivering a sideways kick to his back and sending him staggering towards the rest of the group.
Zen-Aku was next who performed a diagonal slash across his chest, then a horizontal slash before a roundhouse kick, each hit sending sparks flying from the monster. He then finished his attack by back flipping over the next combatant, the charging White Starforce Ranger.
Jan spun around with his Trident held out and slashing the Monster across the stomach 3 times, sending sparks flying, before finishing by impaling the creature and pulling the Trident out and delivering a hard hit to its face with the butt of the Trident.
Jan then moved to the side to allow the charging Humungosaur to deliver a skeleton shattering punch to the Digimon, sending him flying, he then stopped in mid-air and flew back the way he came, towards Humungosaur, but instead of being hit again, he saw Shama run up Humungosaurs back and jump off his shoulder, meeting him with an ignited Lightsaber he slashed at his midsection, the Lightsaber tearing through his stomach and out the other side, only slicing the left half of Apocalymons stomach.
But the momentum carried Apocalymon onwards to meet with Humungosaurs flat palm who closed his massive fingers around the Digimon before smashing him into the ground, then throwing him up into the air where a pair of shockwave like energy blasts came towards him from GranKuwagamon before the insect Digimon batted him back down to the ground.
As Apocalymon fell, he looked to see a large sword stick through his stomach, he looked around to see TigerVespamon holding the sword, she then stuck the other one into his chest next to the first sword before flipping him over so she was above him and kicking off hard, sending him hurtling into the ground. He hit the ground so hard that he made a small crater, but that Small crater wasn’t to remain small for long. Jan’s White Dragonzord jumped into the air and grew to its full size, it then flew over the small crater and watched the Digimon try and struggle to his feet, but White Dragonzord’s claws on its hands shot off and smashed into it as missiles, throwing up smoke, but before it could clear, the Zord opened its mouth and a large white blast of energy shot towards the ground and hit Apocalymons crater. The team quickly surrounded the crater, weapons drawn and ready to call it a day as soon as it was confirmed dead.
((Note: end music now))
“WELL, I THINK THAT MAY HAVE BEEN THE MOST PATHETIC THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.” Laughed a voice from behind them. They looked and saw Apocalymon, still battered from his beating, but then regenerated and looked as though he was never hurt to begin with.
“Hey, that’s cheating!!!” Yelled Beelzemon.
“All’s fair in love and war.” Said Humungosaur.
“I COULDN’T PUT IT BETTER MYSELF.” Said Apocalymon it moved with lightning speed, striking Dozer in the chest with his palm and sending him flying straight through the building behind him, and through several others behind it before the group lost sight of him. Beelzemon fired another couple of shots which were blocked by a large Ankh that appeared to protect Apocalymon, Beelzemon was then sent flying with a blast from the Ankh. Apocalymon then slashed at White Starforce Ranger with his claws, Jan was able to avoid the attack, and Zen-Aku tried to slash him from behind, but the creature moved and he accidently struck Jan.
“Sorry!!!” yelled Zen-Aku. But Jan was now blinded by rage.
“SO YOU WERE A TRAITOR AFTER ALL!!!” he jumped to his feet and delivered a hard kick to the Duke Org’s chest, sending him back. Deciding to let those two kill each other, Apocalymon simply moved on to his next victim, he was about to go after Kyzan when he was tackled hard in the side by Shadow Angel, blasting him off of his feet. Shadow Angel landed and kicked off of Apocalymon.
“Back down now before I blast you into pieces.” Said Shadow Angel. Apocalymon took a pair of steps forwards before Shadow Angel let loose his Chest cannon, sending a massive blast of energy at the death-bringer. Apocalymon was thrown backwards and landed with ease
“YOU KNOW, SOON I WILL HAVE TO START TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY, BE GLAD THAT I AM ALLOWING YOU SOME SEMBLENCE OF HOPE!” said Apocalymon.
“Be glad that your attention was kept on me.” Replied Shadow. As he said that, Kyzan landed on Apocalymon with an earth-shattering thud. Apocalymon got up.
“ENOUGH!!! NONE OF YOU CAN STAND BEFORE ME, I AM PAIN AND SUFFERING YOU DULL BEAST, AND I WILL NOT BE BULLIED BY Y-” She then grabbed his leg and started smashing him on the ground
. She then threw him into the ground and stamped on him, but Apocalymon easily picked her up and threw her off. He then jumped on top of her and his hand transformed into a large spike, they both knew exactly what was about to happen, but Kyzan was quick on the button, pressing the Ultimatrix dial on her chest, the dial changed by growing 4 little edges that dug into her, her dinosaur form then went from orange to blue with a green back, covered in spikes and her tail now had a large mace on the end of it. The change threw Apocalymon off of her.
“Ultimate Humungosaur.” She pointed her hands at him and they changed into little rocket launchers (Writers Note: I have no idea how the laws of nature would allow a creature to naturally develop Rocket Launchers, but in the Ben 10 universe… they can.) she fired multiple shots at Apocalymon before jumping up and bringing her hammer tail down on the Digimon. But one of his shoulder claws fired off and grabbed the tail and threw her at Shadow Angel and they both went flying through another building. He then saw Toma, he started to advance upon the Saiyan. Toma was scared out of his mind, the constant provocation from Toes wasn’t helping either.
“Come on, let me out and I can protect us.” Toma shook his head and fired off a trio of Ki blasts, but they did nothing to the Digimon. Out of No-Where, a series of Energy blades struck the Digimon, Toma looked to see GranKuwagamon flying over them unleashing his Double Scissor-Claw attacks then TigerVespamon swooped in and engaged him, slashing him with her swords before booting him in the side, this kick, however, did nothing. Apocalymon easily threw TigerVespamon aside before blasting her with an Ankh attack, stolen from Strangefate. When GranKuwagamon flew in for another attack, Apocalymon simply grabbed his pincers and flipped him over before delivering a punch to the Giant Beetles face that knocked him out cold, he then turned back to Toma and continued his advance.
Just as he got close, suddenly he a strange sound could be heard getting louder, it sounded like a stampede. Apocalymon look just in time to see a fist rushing at him at 200MPH. and sent him flying. Toma looked to see Dozer standing where Apocalymon had been. “Come on kid, we gotta work together.” Said Dozer. He was then hit in the chest by a massive energy blast and sent backwards off his feet. He looked up to see Machinedramons head and shoulders coming out of Apocalymons hand. “Crap…” he muttered as he got to his feet. Dozer knew that if he was as powerful as Dirk had made him out to be, then the only chance they stood lay in the kid. He would have to get the big guy onto the field.
“Why not kill the kid?” Said Dozer. Toma looked at Dozer and all of the blood drained from his face.
“AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION!” He blasted Dozer again “AND THAT’S FOR NOT BEING A TEAM PLAYER!” he began to advance on the Saiyan again. “NOW SHOW ME YOU’RE TRUE POWER.” He rushed in and punched Toma in the gut, then in the face. “SHOW ME THIS POWER!!!” he began punching Toma back and forth across the face. But then something snapped inside of Toma, and he grabbed one of Apocalymons punches, stopping him dead in his tracks. The muscles in his arm exploded outwards, his hair grew longer and sharper. His pupils dilated and became white. He looked up at Apocalymon as he was now about as tall as the Digimon.
“You wanted to see my true power? I AM THE ONLY POWER IN THIS WRETCH!!!” yelled Toma, he then punched Apocalymon so hard in his gut that his hand went straight through, the then punched a hole in his chest, then another in his chest before delivering a roundhouse kick with so much power that his face crumpled and left an indent of Toma’s Leg.
“Toma… you ok?” asked Dozer.
“My name… IS TOES!!!” in the blink of an eye, he was in front of Dozer. “And I thank you for releasing me from my prison.” Said Toes. “But don’t think that will save you in the long run. You’ll die, just like everyone else… but him first.” Toes walked over to Apocalymon and grabbed him by the throat, picking him up and slamming him back down several times before blasting him with a powerful Ki-shot. He then stomped on the Digimons face. He floated up into the air, when suddenly a claw caught his leg. He looked down to see Apocalymon standing and grinning. Completely unharmed.
“WHEN WILL YOU LEARN?!?!? I AM PAIN AND SUFFERING, YOU CANNOT END ME!!!” the two began to fight again. And Dozer sat and watched, he then decided to go and check on the others whilst Toes was holding him off, if they could regroup, they had a chance. He ran off and found Beelzemon getting to his feet after the attack. Dozer helped him up.
“Thanks.” Said Beelzemon “I’m going to get Richard, I have an idea.” he went running off towards the battle. Dozer tried to grab Beelzemons arm, but missed.
“You’re welcome.” He muttered. Dozer then dodged to the side as Toes was thrown straight past him, but Toes simply gave a roar of great frustration.
“YOU DIE NOW!!!!” he put his hands together and a gigantic blast flew towards Apocalymon. Dozer protected himself with an energy shield. But was still thrown back. Toes then regained his composure and saw that Apocalymon was gone. “Right, now for the rest of you.” Said Toes cracking his knuckles. Suddenly he found himself unable to move he opened his mouth but nothing happened.
“YOU ARE BORING ME!” Said a voice from behind him. Apocalymon walked past him and looked at Dozer. “YOU ON THE OTHER HAND ARE STILL OF INTEREST!” suddenly there was an almighty flash off in the distance which both looked around to see, there was a trio of creatures headed for them, two were spinning and glowing.
“DNA DIGIVOLVE TO!!!”
GrandisKuwagamon and Beelzemon landed, Richard got down from Beelzemons shoulder and the pair of Digimon adopted a fighting stance “He’s from our world.” Said GrandisKuwagamon.
“It’s only fitting that we are the ones to take him down.” Said Beelzemon. He then put his hand to one side and a large white sword appeared in it. As it appeared, Beelzemons wings changed from Black to white with blue stripes. His black jacket turned orange and his trousers turned blue, the dull iron on his body became bright Steel. He then pulled out a Berenjena and twirled it in one hand. Apocalymon began to clap.
“THAT WAS ALMOST INTIMIDATING!” he said.
“Well how about this?” asked Beelzemon, he fired a trio of shots, one of them blew Apocalymons arm off, Beelzemon then ran forwards and jumped before bringing his sword down on him, but Apocalymon extended his hand and caught the sword. Then GrandisKuwagamon appeared behind Apocalymon before slashing him across the back with his claws several times. Apocalymon swung Beelzemon around and threw him into GrandisKuwagamon and they both landed in a heap. They were back up quickly and readied for another attack when Zen-Aku flew right past them and landed in a roll, getting back to his feet quickly, the Digimon looked to see Jan running at him, the Ranger and Duke Org exchanged several punches and kicks before finally, Jan jumped back.
“Trident of Triforia!!!” he yelled as his Large trident appeared, it was missing the middle prong. Zen-Aku drew his own curved blade and they exchanged several more blows before GrandisKuwagamon picked them both up by their scruffs and held them up.
“CALM IT!!!” he yelled. Apocalymon pouted.
“OH, YOU SPOILED MY FUN… WELL I SUPPOSE IT’S TIME FOR ME TO START BEING SERIOUS!!!” he said. Suddenly he hunched over as several things exploded on his back, the team looked to see Kyzan in Ultimate Humungosaur form. She kept firing until Apocalymon finally turned around one of the Shoulder claws shot out and grabbed Ultimate Humungosaurs chest and lifted her into the air. The claw began to glow.
“SHIT, HE’S DRAINING HER!!!” yelled Beelzemon, he quickly ran and jumped before severing the chain with his Sword, but the damage was already done. Kyzan transformed back into her normal form and fell towards the ground, but was caught by Shadow Angel as she fell. He floated down to the ground and let her down. She staggered hazily to her feet and looked at Apocalymon.
“Shit…” he coughed. Apocalymons arm started to glow and an Ultimatrix appeared. He looked down at it.
“HAHAHA!!! YOUR PRECIOUS ALIENS ARE NOW ALL MINE!!!” he turned the dial and slapped it down. In a flash of green light, he now had red wire-like patterns running all over his body and a large eye in the middle of his head.
“AND SO IS YOUR METAL MAN!!!” he transformed into a puddle and jumped on Shadow Angel. Shadow desparetly grabbed at the blob, trying to pull it off.
“GET THIS BASTARD OFF OF ME!!!” he yelled, but then stopped moving and his eyes went from a light blue to a deep red, it now had the red-wires running all over its body as well.
“NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO? I HAVE YOUR METAL MAN TRAPPED IN HERE!!!”
“Leave him to me.” Said Jan stepping forwards, Beelzemon was about to join them, but looked at his sword, he knew that if he joined, there was a good chance that all he would succeed in would be killing Shadow.
“I think now is a time to put our differences aside.” Said Zen-Aku, joining the Rangers side.
“Get out of here now before I kill you.” Said Jan.
“You plan to take it on alone?” asked Zen-Aku. “We’re the only ones that can fight it without killing Shadow. We can destroy the substance on the outside controlling him without destroying the armor.” He then punched his own palm “Or pummel it until it lets go, whichever comes first.” He ran forwards and delivered a triple roundhouse kick before hitting it with his blade, but was then blasted backwards off of his feet by a plasma shot. Apocalymon walked forwards and grabbed Zen-Aku’s throat before punching him to the ground. He was then knocked back as Jan shot it several times with his blaster, sparks flowing out of his like blood. Apocalymon raised Shadows arm and fired a plasma shot that had much the same effect on Jan. Jan and Zen-Aku looked at each other before struggling to their feet. They panted heavily.
“This guy is tougher than I thought.” Said Jan.
“Indeed, but we cannot allow it to control Shadow.” Replied Zen-Aku.
“Alright, looks like it’s Battlizer time.” Said Jan. he put his hand to the sky “WHITE DRAGONZORD, BATTLIZER MODE!!!” he yelled, White Dragonzord ran towards White Ranger in its small travel form (about the size of a German Shepherd) it jumped and landed on White Rangers back, before forming body-armour. A laser rifle then appeared in his hands. “This was made based off of S.W.A.T. Mode from the former SPD.” He said. He then pointed the rifle at it and fired several shots, more sparks flew from it, he then ran and dived behind cover as it fired back. He then poked his head out and fired several more shots. But then jumped, White Dragonzords wings extended and a jet-pack roared, shooting him over Shadow, firing several times, he landed and fired again. “ANYONE WANT TO GIVE ME A HAND?!?!” he yelled
“I’ve got this!” said a voice, they looked around to see Kyzan getting to her feet, she staggered forwards and then activated the Ultimatrix, she slapped it down and transformed into her Galvanic Mechamorph form.
“Get Back Kyzan!” yelled Beelzemon “You’re too weak from the drain.”
“The Ultimatrix will give me the power I need…” she panted, She then transformed into a puddle form and jumped on Shadow. The 2 blobs began to writhe around, fighting each other for control of Shadow. Jan saw a part of the Red blob rise from the body a bit, preparing to strike, he quickly drew his blaster and shot it. The red blob flew off and reformed back into its Apocalymon form. Shadow fell onto one knee and shook its head a little before getting back up.
“DAMN YOU!!!” yelled Apocalymon. “WELL IT DOESN’T MATTER, THERE IS ANOTHER ALIEN IN HERE THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO DESTROY YOU.” He extended the Ultimatrix and selected Way Big.
“NO!!!” yelled Kyzan, recognizing the Alien. Apocalymon slapped the dial down and a fin grew out of his head and a spike grew from each elbow, it began to grow, finally stopping at about 50 feet tall. Jan looked up at it and his Battlizer disengaged. Transforming back into the White Dragonzord. Jan looked at Zen-Aku, they nodded at one another.
“I NEED WHITE DRAGONZORD POWER NOW!!!” Yelled Jan, putting his hand to the sky. The White Dragonzord jumped high into the air before growing into its battle-mode.
“WILDZORDS COMBINE!!!” yelled Zen-Aku. The Wildzords Descended and transformed into the Predazord
The two Zords stood in front of Apocalymon, White Dragonzord roared at it, both pilots jumped into their cockpits. “The Predazord will take point, you back us up.” Said Zen-Aku.
“Right, we’re not built for Melee combat anyway.” Replied Jan. White Dragonzord flew into the air and rained down its claw-missiles on Apocalymon. Apocalymon pointed his hand at the Dragonzord and prepared to fire a Cosmic Beam, but its hands were sliced clean off by the Predazord Gator-Staff, it then sliced it across the chest before finally punching it with its Wolf fist. Apocalymon stumbled back before reforming its hands and trying to fire a cosmic beam at the Predazord, but instead was blasted back by the main cannon of the White Dragonzord. Apocalymon then repaired all damage done to it
“ARE YOU QUITE DONE?!” it asked, looking rather bored. In a quick-fire, it blasted both Mech’s with its Cosmic Beams, they both went down, but the Predazord was back up quickly, it flurried its weapon and prepared for the next round, however, the White Dragonzord was having a little more trouble, being only a singular Zord, it wasn’t able to take much punishment on its own. The rest of the team watched as the giants fought.
“What are we going to do?” asked Comet.
“Nothing we can do really.” Replied Shadow. “We don’t have the size to fight him now.”
“I do…” said Kyzan, she got off of Shadow. “I could become a To’Kustar, like him.”
“No, you don’t have the energy to do it.” Said Beelzemon.
“I have plenty of energy…” replied Kyzan. She took a pair of steps forwards before falling over. She was caught by Dozer.
“Come on little lady, you aren’t going anywhere… Hey, where’s Toma?” asked Dozer. He looked around and saw Toes stuck in the same position he was in before, unable to move “Damn… so how do we break him out?”
“Question is, do we want to?” asked Shadow.
Meanwhile, back in the battle of the giants. The Predazord was thrown backwards. Dragonzord moved in and fired a blast from its mouth. But Apocalymon was unaffected. “Dammit, your little Dragonzord isn’t strong enough.” Said Zen-Aku. “We are going to need more power to break that creature.” He pulled his flute out and threw a pair of Crystals in the air and caught them in his flute. “WILDZORDS, DESCEND!!!” yelled Zen-Aku.
“What? More Wildzords? How many did you steal?” asked Jan.
“Steal? I have no idea what you mean?” said Zen-Aku. the Predazord disengaged its Wolfzord and Hammerheadzord arms and was replaced by the Black-bearzord and the Polar-bearzord
“Predazord, Double-Knuckle Mode” said Zen-Aku. The Predazord began punching Apocalymon with both of its fists. Punching it constantly, before finally sending it backwards off of its feet with an uppercut. “Come on, it’s off-balance!!! WILDZORDS DESCEND!!!” yelled Zen-Aku as he blew his flute. The Wolfzord and Hammerheadzord ran towards the White Dragonzord along with the Rhinozord. When suddenly the controls of the White Dragonzord went dead.
“What are you doing? I can’t move!!!” said Jan. the White Dragonzord began to change shape. Its legs, head and arms folded into its body and a more humanoid head appeared from the top of the White Dragonzord, whilst the Dragon head fitted onto the chest. The Wolfzord and Hammerheadzord fitted to it as arms before the Rhinozord formed into legs and the Dragonzord body landed on the legs and it formed together.
“Behold, the Wild Mega Dragonzord.” Said Zen-Aku.
“But…? How…?” asked Jan.
“There’s no time now.” Replied Zen-Aku. The pair of Megazords stood in front of the monster as it got to its feet. “ATTACK NOW!!!” yelled Zen-Aku as the Predazord passed the Gator-staff to the Mega Dragonzord and It charged towards Apocalymon, swinging the staff and knocking it off of its feet. The Predazord ran up to it and kicked it on the ground before punching it a pair of times, Apocalymon kicked it back and the pair of Megazords stood and watched it get to its feet.
“Let’s finish it!!!” yelled Jan. the Predazords Alligator head raised up and it pointed its Bear heads at it.
“FULL-MOON-BEAR-BLASTER!!!” Yelled Zen-Aku. The Gator mouth opened and a large blue beam shot out, the Bear mouths opened and a White beam shot from the Polar bears mouth and a Red beam shot from the Black bears mouth.
“SUPER PREDA-DRAGO-BLASTER!!!” yelled Jan, the Hammerhead, Wolf and Dragon mouths all opened and shot a large laser at Apocalymon. Apocalymon was thrown backwards and writhed before exploding.
“YES!!!” yelled both Jan and Zen-Aku together before both Megazords high-fived.
“DID YOU THINK IT WOULD BE THAT EASY?!?!?!?” roared a voice. Apocalymon came back and blasted the Predazord, it put up its arms, but the Bears were both blasted clean off of it. Apocalymon then ran up to the Mega Dragonzord and kicked it so hard that the other Wildzords disengaged and Jan was thrown from the Dragon as it returned to its travel mode, the Hammerheadzord and Wolfzord both ran over and re-joined the Predazord, the Rhinozord and Bearzords disappeared into the rainbow.
“DAMMIT!!!” yelled Zen-Aku. “Focus on finding more power, I’ll hold him off!!!” said Zen-Aku, twirling the Gator-staff.
Beelzemon helped Jan to his feet. “Dammit, we threw everything the Wildzords had at him… and it didn’t even phase him.” Said Jan. “We need more power…”
“I have an idea.” Said Shadow. “Your Dragon has the ability to grow machines, use it on my suit and I’ll be able to fight him.”
“No, it isn’t that simple, you’re suit will need a pilot of the right size to use it.” Said Jan.
“Well then grow it a little bigger so that…” he pointed at the Predazord “That thing can use it.” Said Shadow
“He won’t fit.” Said Jan.
“I have an idea…” said Kyzan. She walked over to them and hit her Ultimatrix, transforming into Upgrade. She jumped on Shadow and he changed. Then a strange mechanical device appeared on Shadow’s back “I’ve built an interface unit. If the Dragonzord combines with us, it should grow to the right size and will have the cockpit to use it.” Said Kyzan. Jan and Shadow looked at each other.
“Do it.” Said Shadow. Jan put his wrist to his mouth
“DRAGONZORD! COMBINE!” he yelled. The Dragonzord ran up and jumped onto Shadow’s back, Shadow then began to grow and the Dragonzord seemed to fold around Shadow’s armour, to give it extra armour. It appeared to be a giant form of Shadow, with the Dragonzords head on its chest, the claws from the feet and hands on the end of the armours fingers and feet. Some of the armour morphed into an extra helmet for the Shadow head “BEHOLD! THE SHADOW DRAGO-MEGAZORD. Shadow and Jan were in the cockpit at the controls, Shama, Dirk, Richard and the Digimon appeared in the doorway, they all ran to the controls.
“What are you 3 doing in here?” asked Jan.
“It’s a Megazord! There is no way I’m going to pass up getting behind the controls of this big boy.” Said Dirk.
“But you don’t know how to use it…” replied Shadow, he then looked at the controls “I don’t know how to use it…”.
“Megazords have are telepathically linked to their pilots, they tell us how to use it.” Said Dirk.
“Ok, how do you know all this?” Asked Jan.
“I am a sad, lonely man, of course I know the physics behind a Megazord.” Replied Dirk. Shadow and Jan looked at each other. The Predazord landed in a heap by the Shadow Drago-megazord. The Drago-Megazord immediately rushed in and sent Apocalymon backwards with a single punch. It then picked up the Predazords dropped Gator Staff and slashed Apocalymon with it several times before backing off.
“COME ON!!!” yelled Zen-Aku “let’s combine, if we combine all of the Zords and hit that piece on its chest!!!” he motioned to the Ultimatrix symbol. “We might be able to destroy its ability to transform.”
“…” Jan tried to speak, but he was stopped by confusion and rage at Zen-Aku.
“I’ll do it.” Said Shadow, he hit several buttons and the Zords began to glow. The Wolfzord and Hammerheadzord let go and the Gatorzords body folded down, the Shadow Drago-Megazord then jumped up and its legs and arms folded up into the torso. The Hammerheadzord and Wolfzord then attached to the Shadow Drago-megazord, and it landed on the Gatorzords legs. Zen-Aku then appeared at the top of the cockpit.
“It is excellent to see you, friend.” Said Shama as Zen-Aku descended into the cockpit of the new Megazord. “I would like the record to show that I still have no idea what’s going on.”
“Come on guys.” Said Dirk, stepping forwards “let’s hit him with everything we have.” He said. Suddenly the entire cockpit became black with green wiring.
“DON’T WORRY, I’VE GOT IT FROM HERE.” Yelled Kyzan from the console. The Megazord lifted its arms and they began to glow as well as the Dragon head in the chest, now supercharged because of the Shadow Angels ARC reactor. Comet hovered above the head of the Megazord and gathered a large ball of green energy. GrandisKuwagamon grabbed Comet and began to feed him energy, increasing the size of the energy-ball. Apocalymon began to charge, but was suddenly stopped as a speeding object knocked him backwards. The Speeding object was Dozer. Apocalymon got a further shock when Toes punched him so hard in the face, that he did a quadruple back-flip before landing on his back, the Digimon staggered to his feet to see Toes gathering a large ball of energy as well.
“FIRE!!!!” yelled Jan. every ounce of energy in the place immediately flew at the Ultimatrix-symbol on Apocalymons chest. It exploded with a great enough force to cause a shockwave. That blew most of them over. Everyone saw the smoke clear and nothing was left. “YES!!!!” thunderous applause rang out.
“WE FUCKING GOT HIM!!!” yelled Dirk. Jan was so happy that he didn’t notice that he, Comet and Zen-Aku were now in a 3 way hug that quickly became awkward… especially when Comet didn’t let go. Shama simply sat back in his seat, still trying to comprehend what was happening, and more importantly, why? Dozer grabbed Toes around the waist and hugged him.
“Why on Vegeta are you doing that?” asked Toes. “I’m going to kill you all now.”
“No you aren’t.” said Dozer.
“Why?” asked Toes.
“Because I didn’t get rid of the mental block he put in, I only moulded it so you can’t harm us.” Toes sneered before hugging Dozer back… really… really… REALLY… hard.
“No homo?” wheezed Dozer.
“ALL OF THE HOMO!!!” laughed Toes.
Richard, Impmon and GrandisKuwagamon were all high-fiving one another. But victory was cut short as the Megazord flew apart, everyone inside being thrown from the hulking machines. Those outside of it were left dumbfounded.
“No…” said Dozer “No… HE CAN’T BE ALIVE!!! NOT AFTER ALL THAT!!!”
“Oh but I can.” Said a voice behind Dozer. The Saiyan and Avatar of Cyttorak looked around in time to see Apocalymon blast them with some of Strangefates magic. “BUT I MUST ADMIT!!! I AM QUITE ANNOYED THAT YOU DESTROYED MY ULTIMATRIX!!!” he said. Apocalymon blocked a kick to the side of his head, thrown by Comet. Comet then sent a pair of energy balls at him before going in for another punch. Apocalymon easily withstood the barrage, but grasped Comets hand and threw him away, his hand then shot out, just in time to block Shama’s Lightsaber.
Shama landed and began to circle the monster “You know, you have annoyed me to the extent that I shall now use something that I really didn’t want to use.” Shama’s hand thrust out and lightning shot into Apocalymon. The Digimon simply stared, completely un-phased by the attack. “Well… that wasn’t totally unexpected…” said Shama. He was then batted away by Apocalymons backhand.
Dirk and Jan were sprawled next to each other. “COME ON, PINEAPPLE HEAD!!!” yelled Impmon as he came rushing up to them. “WE GOTTA MOVE!!!” he yelled.
“Oh what’s the point…” said Dirk. “We threw everything we had at him and that barely scratched him.”
“No…” said Jan. “The battle between good and evil will always be won by the good.” Dirk laughed at that last part.
“The battle between good and evil.” Laughed Dirk. “What horse-shit… it’s not like… Wait… the battle between good and evil…” Dirk sat bolt upright. “I just figured it out…” he jumped up. “I KNOW HOW TO BEAT HIM!!! Jan, get your sorry ass up, we need you.” He said. Jan shifted uncomfortably.
“Sorry, I can’t…” said Jan. “My body has finally given out… I can’t move.”
“But we need your morpher! It’s the only thing that can beat him.” Said Dirk. Jan sighed and stopped struggling.
“Shit… typical isn’t it?” said Jan. “Every time I get can save the day, something shit happens. I save the day but lose my heart and my mentors Zords…” he shifted again. “No… I can’t move… movement is pain.” Dirk looked around.
“Sorry about this Jan.” said Dirk.
“What?” asked Jan. suddenly he powered down, as Dirk snatched the morpher from his wrist. “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!?!?! THAT IS STARFORCE PROPERTY, PUT IT BACK OR I WILL KILL YOU!!!” yelled Jan.
“DO YOU WANT TO LIVE?” yelled Dirk.
“THAT’S BESIDE THE POINT, GIVE ME BACK MY MORPHER BEFORE I KICK YOUR FACE OFF!!!” yelled Jan.
“Sorry, Jan, but someone has to do it.” He said strapping the morpher to his wrist. He then smiled “It’s not my fault if I have wanted to do this since I was 8... IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!!!” he held up his morpher and in a flash of light, the costume was on him. “This… is the single most fucking awesome thing I have ever done in the entire history of my life…” he said. Regardless of the situation, Dirk couldn’t help but be filled with positive feelings. “Come on Impmon.” he looked down at Jan. “I truly am sorry, but it’s the only way to save everyone.” He said.
“When I regain the ability to walk, you are fucking dead…” said Jan. Dirk bent down.
“Look, it’s not as though I stole it for a joy-ride, this is so I live, you live, and everyone else in the team lives. If that results in my ass getting kicked, then so be it. It wouldn’t have been the first time.” Dirk ran towards the sounds of Battle. He jumped over a large pile of rubble to see Shama, Zen-Aku and Comet, ganging up on the Digimon. Dirk jumped into the battle and immediately put his hand up. “STOP!!!” immediately, the battle stopped and everyone looked at Dirk in his White Ranger outfit. “I have just figured out exactly how to beat you.” Said Dirk. Looking at Apocalymon. “We need a fuck-load of power, which doesn’t exist outside of the unstoppable killing machine that is Toes.” Said Dirk. He then brought his morpher up. “This, Apocalymon, is the instrument of your doom.”
“THAT POXY LITTLE THING?” scoffed Apocalymon. “YOU ARE JOKING!!!”
“Quite the contrary, you see, this little device gains its powers from the Morphing Grid, which gets its power from the constant battle between good and evil… how much power do you think it just gained from our little spat?” asked Dirk.
“HAH! TRY IT MORTAL! THAT MUCH POWER WILL FRY YOUR LITTLE MIND!!!” Laughed Apocalymon.
“Probably…” said Dirk. “But there is someone who it wouldn’t fry… a being of pure Gluttony, a creature built to consume power endlessly.” Without looking, he grabbed his Digivice “Impmon…” he said bringing his Digivice up. “BIOMERGE!!!” the pair began to glow and they disappeared before they returned as Beelzemon, however, now, most of his cloths were white, with gold trimmings. Beelzemon also had a visor over its eyes.
Beelzemon drew his sword. “Now… what happens when I hack this little sucker to give me all of the energy that just spiked in the Morphing grid?” he stuck his claws into it and energy began to serge around it. Beelzemons muscles seemed to grow larger. Eventually, the amount of power in him made his visor start glowing. “DRAGONZORD!!! BATTLIZER MODE!!!” he yelled. The Dragonzord travel-mode ran up and jumped onto his back. Beelzemons wings retracted into him and a set of metal ones seemed to fold out of the Dragonzord. A small thruster appeared out of the bottom of it as well. Beelzemon darted forwards and delivered an earth-shattering punch to Apocalymons face, sending him backwards with an indent of Beelzemons fist left.
“Jeez…” said Comet. “Come on, everyone, Beelzemon may have a chance of winning!” he slipped the Legion Ring from his finger and threw it to Beelzemon. “CATCH!!!” Beelzemon caught the ring and slipped it on. Apocalymon summoned an Ankh and blasted Beelzemon with Fire, but strangely, Beelzemon came out the other side of the attack unphased. “It’ll grant protection from extreme heat.” Said Comet. Beelzemon drew his Berenjena’s and fired, lasers came out in rapid fire, knocking Apocalymon backwards. As every shot hit him, Apocalymon was forced back more and more, Beelzemon then landed and Jan’s Trident appeared in his hand.
“Take this!!!” Yelled Zen-Aku, throwing his sword to Beelzemon. Beelzemon caught it and held it in the air, suddenly his Omni-Sword appeared and the three weapons floated for a second before floating together, in a flash of light, the tree weapons became one, the top of the Trident carried the Omni-Sword, the bottom had Zen-Aku’s, the Prongs of the Trident changed shape to mimic Zen-Aku’s sword. Beelzemon twirled the Trident
“You consume all you touch... WELL I’M THE DEMON LORD OF GLUTTONY!!! I CONSUME ALL IN MY WAY!!! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TWO UNSTOPPABLE FORCES COLLIDE!?!?!?” He yelled. Apocalymon scowled at Beelzemon.
“SIMPLE! THE WEAKER ONE IS DESTROYED!” replied Apocalymon.
“Wow, this is turning into a Cat Fight.” Said Impmon.
“He’s right!!!” Said Dirk “We can’t take him as is. We need more.”
“Someone throw me their weapon.” Said Beelzemon. GrandisKuwagamon landed by him, Beelzemon and GrandisKuwagamon looked at each other.
“You wanna try this?” asked GrandisKuwagamon.
“Fuck yeah…” replied Beelzemon, grabbing hands, they disappeared into a beam of light. Beelzemon grew Gauntlets similar to GrandisKuwagamons forearms, his wings then disappeared back into his back and GrandisKuwagamons wings grew in their place, a pair of antenna grew from his head. “BEELZEMON: GRANDISMODE!!!” he then pressed the Morpher and his entire body went white and the visor re-appeared over his eyes. The Trident then fell into his hands. He then charged at Apocalymon and slashed at him with the Trident before running jumping and kicking him backwards. Apocalymons shoulder claws then shot out and latched onto Beelzemons Claw arms, Apocalymons own arms grew claws like GrandisKuwagamon. But suddenly the chains were cut as Shama flew through the air, Lightsaber outstretched. Beelzemon charged again, locking the Trident with Apocalymons claws, they then pushed off and jumped back a little. Apocalymon pointed his hand at Beelzemon and a trio of swords shot at him, he deflected them with a twirl of his Trident.
“I HAVE TO ADMIT, YOU ARE INTREGING ME DEMON LORD… BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THAT GIRL.” He said pointing at Kyzan. It was obvious to anyone that he was about to try and get the Ultimatrix back.
“Fuck…” muttered Dirk. He immediately shot towards her “Gimme the Ultimatrix.” He said.
“No…” she coughed out. “I have a plan…” she got up and pressed the button, the dial then went up.
“Don’t, it might kill you, using so much energy when you have none left.” He said.
“I have enough… for this…” she said, “But you will have to hold him off… until it is ready.” She said. She twisted the dial and a hologram of a strange alien appeared. “Because if he absorbs this… We are all dead.” She said. Beelzemon put his hand on the watch and looked at her, as though asking if he could try it. His claws touched the watch and Data began to flow back and forth between him and the watch, his eyes then seemed to turned green for a second.
“Got it.” He said. He then placed his hand on top of hers and pressed down. Transforming Kyzan into Alien X.
She then floated a foot from the ground.
“Shit…” said Dirk. He then heard laughter from behind him.
“Oh… is that all? Well it has a lot of power, yes… but that power will soon be mine.” He said.
“You’ll have to go through me… and all of these.” He brought his arm up and showed his wrist. “You see, I saw what you did, and our powers are similar, we consume and grow stronger… well I only consumed what I needed… to make this…” suddenly, the Ultimatrix appeared on his wrist. He pressed a button and the dial went up, he twisted it until finally a nice looking alien appeared, he slapped it down and his head became skeletal and encompassed by fire, his skin seemed to become rock-like and his hands set fire and fire encompassed the Grandisclaws. He twirled his Trident “Anyone want to lend a hand?” he asked. Dozer walked beside him. “You sure?” asked Beelzemon.
“Of course… I want to live as much as you do… and protect her more than you.” He said.
“I already called Dibs.” Said Beelzemon.
“Bite me, trash-fire.” Replied Dozer. “So what’s that thing going to do?”
“It’s called Alien X, it has 3 personalities, when two or more decide to destroy Apocalymon, nothing is going to stop it from doing that.” He said “But debating could take anywhere between a few seconds to a billion billion years….”
“Comforting… so how do we know it’s going to work?” asked Dozer.
“AS MUCH AS ENJOY YOUR ARGUING, I’M AFRAID THAT I NEED TO ABSORB HER POWER.” Said Apocalymon. Dozer ran forwards as Apocalymon placed a golden wall in front of him, using Strangefates magic. As Dozer drew close, he head-butted his way through it and tackled Apocalymon, but Apocalymon teleported and re-appeared elsewhere. Beelzemon blasted him with fire before running up to him and slicing him with the trident. Apocalymon backhanded Beelzemon and sent him flying through the wall.
Elsewhere, Toes was walking away “What? WHERE ARE YOU GOING?!?!?!” yelled Toma.
“That guy is unbeatable… I threw everything me and everyone else had at him, and that did nothing.” He said, continuing to walk.
“BUT THAT GUY’S GOING TO KILL EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING!!!” yelled Toma.
“So.” Replied Toes.
“So…. SO THAT’S YOUR JOB!!!” yelled Toma.
“I don’t care...” replied Toes. Toma’s spirit form appeared in front of Toes. And stared at him.
“You are not leaving…” he said.
“Yes I am, I’m in control now.” Smiled Toes. He pushed Toma out of the way and continued to walk. Toes looked at him.
“FINE!!! RUN THEN!!! COWARD!!!” Toes stopped, he then turned around and ran towards Toma, punching him hard across the face.
“DON’T YOU FORGET YOUR PLACE, WRETCH!!!” roared Toes. Toma got up and stared at Toes.
“If I’m wrong… then prove it… go back there and kill it.” He said.
“I don’t need to prove anything.” Said Toes turning and walking away again. Toma flew in front of him.
“But we can defeat him.” Said Toma.
“How?” asked Toes. Toma put his hand on Toes’ shoulder.
“If we fight together, fight as one person, not 2 people fighting over one body… we can obtain power that neither of us could possibly obtain alone… remember the old expression, United We Stand, Divided We Fall?” Toes simply pushed him aside again and continued walking. “It’s the only way that you can truly get what you want.” Toes stopped and sighed. “Or we can live out the rest of our days hiding? If that’s what you would prefer?” asked Toma.
“Fine…” said Toes. He turned around and looked at Toma, Toma floated over to him and put his head on Toes’ head. A golden light began to shine.
Back at the fight, Beelzemon and Dozer were barely able to hold back Apocalymon, the others staying back, so that Apocalymon couldn’t steal their power. Beelzemon was thrown backwards as he was punched hard, he then transformed back as his Alien Form disappeared. He then found another Alien Form and transformed his Mouth seemed to grow bars across it and his appearance gained a blue tinge. As two extra blue wings grew from his back “Big Chill…” he pressed the button on his chest and his Blue parts became red. “ULTIMATE BIG CHILL!!!” his voice was now snake-like. He breathed a large spurt of fire, as the flames hit Apocalymon, they froze him in place. The ice cracked and Apocalymon stepped out.
“YOU’RE CUTE, THE WAY YOU CONSTANTLY TRY TO HOLD BACK WHAT YOU CAN’T.” said Apocalymon. Its arms then transformed into large cannons before he blasted Beelzemon, but was then crushed as Dozer landed atop him. Apocalymon threw him off and blasted him with Strangefates magic fire. “JUST GIVE UP ALREADY!!!” yelled Apocalymon, Apocalymon was then blasted by Beelzemons Big Chill Ice Blast. Dozer regrouped with Beelzemon.
“Dammit, this guy just doesn’t quit…” said Dozer.
“Nope.” Said Beelzemon. He then passed the Trident to Dozer. “It’s dangerous to go alone, Take this.” He sniggered. Suddenly they heard an earth-shattering scream. “What the… Do you hear that?” asked Beelzemon. The scream grew steadily louder.
“I feel that…” said Dozer. “I sense pain, destructive needs, but there is calm to it…” he looked up to see a golden light, steadily glowing brighter.
“It looks… like the sun…” said Comet.
“It’s Toma… or Toes… or whoever…” said Shama. The Golden light descended and landed in front of them, the bright light was immense, almost soothing in a way… Toma landed and looked at Apocalymon, his eyes glowing bright gold.
“I AM TOEMAS…” said the being in a great booming voice “I AM BEYOND BOTH TOMA AND TOES! NOW BARE WITNESS TO MY POWER!!!” he crunched up his hands and the light grew brighter as his hair began to grow out of his head. “GAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!” the light exploded, half blinding anyone looking at it. As the light faded, Toemas was left standing there, the golden light sending off small sparks due to the amount of power contained in such a small space.
Toemas slowly walked towards Apocalymon, the ground beneath him burning with every step. Beelzemon walked towards him and held out the Ultimatrix “SCANNING NEW LIFE FORM!!!” it said in a metallic monotone. Beelzemon changed back. “Good god, I can’t imagine the power in that alien.” He said. Beelzemon twisted the dial and slapped it down, his appearance changed, his muscles exploding outwards and his hair began to glow gold, and his wings changed from White to Gold. “Wow…” said Beelzemon.
“IT WON’T HELP YOU!!!” roared Apocalymon, he immediately charged Toemas in an attempt to punch him, but Toemas’ hand shot up and grabbed Apocalymons fist, he then squeezed so hard that Apocalymons hand exploded. Apocalymon backed off.
“Dozer.” Said Beelzemon “You need to contact Kyzan, you need to talk to her and convince those personalities to fight Apocalymon.”
“Use your telepathy to save us all.” Said Toemas. Dozer threw the Trident back to Beelzemon and ran over to Alien X, he grabbed the sides of its head and his eyes went white.
“I WON’T LET YOU!!!” roared Apocalymon, charging at Alien X, only to be given a skeleton shattering kick to the face by Beelzemon. Apocalymon got up and looked at Beelzemon, full of energy and almost dancing on the spot, ready to take Apocalymon apart.
“Dammit, I’m full of Saiyan Energy and I’m about ready to kill you.” He laughed. Beelzemon had not only got the powers of the Morphing Grid, but also of a Saiyan. This was quite possibly the most awesome moment of his life. Apocalymon realized that he was losing control of the situation. He floated into the air and his legs exploded as he transformed into his polyhedral form.
“Well… shit…” said Beelzemon. “I’m… I’m speechless…”
“Speech doesn’t matter…” said Toemas. He put his hands up and blasted it with an attack he used to destroy planets. As the beam faded, Apocalymon was still there, fully intact. “But the word Shit does seem to be a very ample description of this situation…”
Meanwhile, Dozer had finally grabbed the head of Alien X and his eyes went blank. He suddenly felt like he was floating in the middle of space. “Trippy…” he said. He then heard some voices.
“THE DINOSAURS DIED A MILLION BLOODY YEARS AGO!!!” yelled a voice that sounded like Kyzans. Dozer looked to see her and two green faces, one male, and the other female.
“Regardless, we still need to discuss whether they are worth saving or not.” Said the male face.
“No, the little one is right, we need to get on to more pressing matters.” Replied the female face.
“Thank you.” Replied Kyzan.
“Such as the Bubonic plague, many people are dying.” She said. Kyzan put her head in her palms.
“400 years out, but getting closer.” She sighed.
“The Bubonic plague is of no concern, the Humans will survive it, the Dinosaurs however…” started the male face. They all looked as an ear-shattering whistle could be heard. Dozer took his fingers away from his mouth.
“Now that I have your attention…” he started.
“Who is this?” asked both faces at the same time.
“Dozer?” asked Kyzan.
“Who else?” he asked. He then floated closer to them. “Look you two, you can talk about the Plague and the Dinosaurs some other time, for the moment, we need the help of Alien X to defeat a creature that is out to destroy the entire of Reality.” He said “That means everything that exists, has ever existed and ever will exist, POOF! Gone!”
“That is indeed a pressing matter.” Said the male face.
“YOU THINK!?!?!?” yelled Dozer.
“I will add it to the roster as Argument number 5,396,281.” He said. A very long piece of parchment appeared and a quill appeared and pencilled it in between “Who should win the 1966 World Cup final?” and “Do we Save Hitlers Brain?” the parchment disappeared “Now, onto article number 4,915,987, Do we take creative control of Star Wars away from George Lucas?” it asked.
“I personally liked the Prequel trilogy.” Said the female one.
“THIS IS GETTING US NO-WHERE!!!” roared Dozer. “NOW YOU TWO ARE GOING TO AGREE THAT ALIEN X WILL DESTROY APOCALYMON OR WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!”
“Impossible, Alien X cannot be destroyed.”
“Yeah, but if he undoes existence, then Alien X will no longer exist…” Dozer thought for a second “… AND THEN YOU CAN’T SAVE THE DINOSAURS!!!” he yelled. The two floating heads looked at each other.
“I agree to stopping Apocalymon, do you?” the female one looked at Dozer.
“And you can’t stop the Bubonic Plague.” He said.
Back outside, everyone was attacking the giant Apocalymon. “THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!” yelled Zen-Aku as the Predazord punched it several times. Toemas was blasting it with as many blasts as he could. A lone claw shot out and made a grab for the floating Alien X. Shama jumped and slashed at the claw, but another one knocked him backwards, Comet also tried by he was grabbed by a claw, the claw closed around Alien X. “SHIT!!!!” yelled Beelzemon.
“HAHAHAHA!!! YOUR MOST POWERFUL BEING IS MINE!!!” the claw began to glow and turn golden as it drained the energy from Alien X, but then turned black, as though staring into a starry nights sky. The blackness travelled up the claw and it dissolved into nothingness. Alien X looked up. Dozer let go and backed off.
“Ha, you are so screwed!” Laughed Dozer. Another 3 claws flew at Alien X, but they all met the same fate as the first.
“DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM!?!?!?” roared Apocalymon. Alien X simply stared at it before floating through the air towards it, Apocalymon blasted him with Strangefates magic, but it simply faded to nothing as it neared him. “WHA… WHAT ARE YOU!?!?!?” yelled Apocalymon, his voice a mix of anger and fright. He blasted Alien X with everything he had, but it did nothing. “THAT’S IT! I’M TAKING YOU ALL WITH ME!!!” he then roared as his body began to glow.
“HE’S GONNA BLOW!!!” Yelled Shama. He began to run, but stopped when he noticed no-one else was “Shouldn’t we retreat to a safe distance?” asked Shama.
“There isn’t one. That attack will take out this universe.” Said Beelzemon. Alien X simply floated over to the body and touched it with its hand. Apocalymon turned black and starry.
“NO!!!! I WILL ACCOMPLISH MY GOAL!!!” roared Apocalymon “I AM UNBEATABLE!!! I AM PAIN AND SUFFERING!!! I CANNOT BE ENDED!!!” the starry pattern reached his face and he slowly faded into nothingness, screaming as he did so. No-one moved until the final echo of Apocalymons blood curdling scream faded. Comet simply threw his arms in the air.
“WE WIN!!!” he yelled. “RIGHT?!?!?!” he asked, looking around. Toemas and walked over to Comet and stared at him. He then wrapped his arms around Comet.
“That’s right…” whispered Toemas. “We win…”
“WE WIN!!!” roared everyone Dozer ran over to Alien X and looked at it.
“Come on, Kyzan, you owe me dinner!” he laughed. Alien X didn’t move. “Kyzan?” Alien X flew into the sky and a strange aura blanketed the earth before suddenly, Dinosaurs appeared around them. It then floated down and changed back into Kyzan and she landed on her feet. Beelzemon walked over to a Stegosaurus
“Why did it do that?” he asked. They all then disappeared in flash of gold and reappeared in Strangefates tent. Strangefate looked at them all.
“I am very proud of you all.” Said Strangefate. Dirk took the White morpher off of his wrist and gave it back to Jan. Jan looked at it and then punched Dirk hard across the face.
“Be thankful I didn’t kick you.” He said.
“Don’t worry, there’s this jerk in my universe that did that to me last time we saved the world, I’m used to it.” He said.
“And now, it is time for you all to go home… unfortunately. Dirk, though some of your powers can be given back, Beelzemons Ultimatrix can’t, so I’m going to have to seal the borrowed powers.” Said Strangefate.
“Come on, having those powers is awesome.” He said.
“But you cannot use the powers ever again, so I will seal them to prevent you from being tempted.” He said placing his hand on his head Dirk then fell to the ground, unconscious. Yaamon appeared on top of him, also asleep. He then disappeared in a flash of light. “He has been returned to his universe, as far as he knows, this never happened. “Come on, now the rest of you.” Said Strangefate. Shama, Richard, Comet and Toma stepped up. Comet hugged Toma.
“May the force be with you all.” Said Shama just before they disappeared.
Zen-Aku and Jan stepped forwards. “So how come my dragon is able to form with the Wildzords?” asked Jan.
“No harm in telling you I suppose.” Said Zen-Aku. “Since we are both going to forget this ever happened… I am a spy for the Black Ranger Corps of Starforce Command.”
“YOU WHAT!?!?!?” yelled Jan.
“When I was first transformed, I had no desire to go against Starforce, so I approached them and asked them if I could join. They decided to send me in as a spy. Your Zord was designed with the idea that at some point, we would be re-partnered together.”
“So… those Wildzords weren’t stolen…”
“Princess Shayla gave them to me.” Said Zen-Aku “But until I was able to gain key information on the enemy, I was to stay incognito and pretend to despise you.” He then hugged Jan. “I am sorry… I am still your heart…” Jan could swear that he could faintly hear Impmon yelling “GAY!!!” him. They then disappeared in a flash of gold.
“Kyzan, Dozer, I sense you have a request.” Said Strangefate, as Dozer, Shadow and Kyzan stepped forward.
“Yes I do.” Said Dozer. “Look Doctor, I want to go back to Kyzans universe with her. In my universe, I am despised, despite what I do. I want to go somewhere that I am appreciated… preferably with a girl I really like.” He said.
“What you request cannot be undone.” Said Strangefate. “If I send you with her, then you will never be able to return to your universe again.”
“What do I have to go back to?” asked Dozer “Prejudice? The overabundance of superheroes? No, I would prefer to go with her.”
“Very well…” said Strangefate.
“If you have anyone you would like me to contact…” said Shadow.
“Get a message to Grandma, tell her I love her, but I had to follow my heart.” He said.
“Sappy… I understand… I don’t know what I would say to my dad if I met him…” said Shadow.
“Treasure every moment, or you may regret it.” Replied Dozer. They all disappeared in a flash of light.
*start song and listen to when reading this*
Dirk awoke in his bed, he moved Yaamon who was sleeping on his stomach and got out of bed and got dressed, and he picked up Yaamon and walked downstairs and got to the front desk of the hotel. He paid the money for the night’s sleep and was about to head out “Excuse me sir, we got this letter for you.” Said the man behind the desk.

All of them in their own dimensions “I am writing to tell you that we are all connected to each other in some way, though we may not be on the same dimensional plane as each other, I want you to know that I think of you all every day. I know that we will never see each other again, and that we will never even be able to remember each other… well I will remember you.

“Are you finished with that letter yet?” asked a voice from behind Bexley, a pair of green arms came over his shoulders and embraced him.
“Just about.” Replied Bexley. He reached his arm around his back and rubbed her stomach.
“Yours sincerely: Jim Bexley.”
