You feel a sudden pull all over your body. It all happened so fast you may or may not even realize that it is coming from your computer. Within the tiniest fraction of an instant, you become sucked into another dimension and are sent spiraling through an endless sea of blue. You are barely (if at all) able to comprehend the different hues of blue you are sent flying so rapidly through, though you certainly cannot read any of the coding. Yes, coding. Countless white and faded blue streams of digits course in all directions, to and fro. Even if you could see the symbols clearly enough, you cannot read or understand them. It is difficult to tell, but for an instant they almost seem to revolve around you and you alone. Almost.
Your journey through this foreign sea, swimming with foreign codes, however becomes cut short. You only had a matter of seconds to comprehend the universe of spiraling data around you before you notice a dark tear in the Æther, and are vacuumed right in. The beautiful sea of blue is suddenly gone, and the coding streams have vanished with it. Now what surrounds you is an empty void of pure pitch black. Nothing. Just darkness. Yet despite being in what seems like a complete darkness, you are able to see yourself clearly. And a few other figures are there too. Among them are a pixelated image of a humanoid figure, a bald man with a cape with a goatee and a strange symbol on his head, a man dressed in red and black with a crest on his head, and a cute young catgirl. Zero, Yuri, Chaos and Lyra.
The catgirl is the only one not oblivious to the surroundings. "Hiya~" she greeted with a wink and faux paw. "We're going to different worlds to gather crucible pieces. Wanna come?" Without waiting for an answer, she giggled playfully.
