Idunn: Líf? Ah, she should be taking a rest in the groundskeeping house, she was bleeding for the northern quarter of the orchard when I went out to visit my husband this morning. I can escort you there. (she walks past him and unlocks the gate, opening it)
Idunn: (she shakes her head) I agree, however she is very insistent. Its simply formality, but don't attempt to touch any trees nor steal any apples while you are inside my grounds. (she steps inside and begins leading the man to the groundskeeping house)
(The trees' branches are heavy with rosy and fresh apples, and yet despite that weight each tree looks as strong and stalwart as stone. Idunn herself picks a few and place them in her casket as they walk. Soon they come to a sturdy wooden hut in a clearing. An enormous deer is grazing to the side.)
Líf: Of course, come in. (she gestures for him to enter)
Idunn: Líf, dear, are you sure you'll be fine?
Líf: It'll be alright, Idunn. Go ahead and pick some more apples, I'm sure Thor will be hungry when he gets back from searching for his gauntlet and belt. Oh, and get some for Ullr too, he should be getting back from searching for Ratatoskr tonight...hopefully he's found him.
Idunn: (she nods) Alright, dear. If that's your judgement I'll leave you to it. (she smiles at Father Caleb) Sorry about these children, I was just worried, you appearance is rather suspicious, if you'll forgive me, I'll take them off for you. (she whistles and thousands of apple seeds start skittering out of Father Caleb's robe. Resembling fat spiders, three whole apples scuttle out with an unnatural pattering on the earthen floor as well.)
Líf: ...well it's calm here. I've taken trips with Dvalinn around most of the nine realms as well...not including Helheim.
(the deer huffs, shuffling its large body through the door and resting itself next to Líf. She strokes his fur absentmindedly)
Líf: That being said I've been worried about the Black Mist population...immortal mosquitos are...a problem and clouds of them have been spotted outside of Asgard looking for me recently. Oh! There's also Ratatoskr. I've been so worried, since he's been missing from Yggdrasil for almost two entire years now.
Líf: (She looks carefully at the photographs) ...what in the world...(she points to the image of the hole) I saw that happen with my own eyes. (she then points to the translucent green butterfly) That of course represents Seer. (her eyes widen upon looking closer at one of the photos) IS THAT OUR DOG?!
Líf: I...I don't know. Y-you know, Seer told me that recently some household goddess was freed from a sealing curse in the old house. I hardly even know what that means, but maybe...since the hole to the Abyss is technically part of the house, then she might be able to help Gi...my eldest sister get out?
(she frowns again, then points at the image of the mansion)
Líf: You didn't tell me what this was about...you also didn't mention...my older brother. I...I know I saw him that night...so he must be out there somewhere. And...you didn't mention Fer...Fer...the other one either.
Caleb continue point toward the mansion.: Your Elder brother live here. I was sent here by him.
Caleb then took the photo of the tree with a skin hanging on the tree. He put forward for Lif to see clearly.
Caleb : Recognize the snake skin? It is found around your old house. After inspecting the Skin, It belong to a woman. Your big brother examine the skin himself. He believe it belong to your missing mother.
Caleb : I can briefly located all of your sibling except your eldest sister. I saw there burn in the ceiling, it seem to belong to her.
Líf: A..snake? Mother?...(she shakes her head trying to clear her clear confusion and goes back to stroking Dvalinn) Also...alright I think I'll try to recount what I remember.
(she sorts the photographs as she talks, putting the tree and Gabriel's photo aside for now, she starts with the picture of the hole)
Líf: I woke up to see my eldest sister fall here, down into 'the Abyss' from what Seer told me.
(she places the photo of the Iron Maiden down next)
Líf: Then I watched my crying youngest sister transform into a solid iron statue with a curse from father's own tongue. That's when I ran. (she places the photo of the mansion down) And I saw him, my older brother already outside with his violin.
(she puts the shadow of the Seventh and Seer's butterfly down below the line she'd made with the previous four)
Líf: As far as I could tell, these two were still asleep. But I didn't see him, the one you don't have any photo of, anywhere. I...also don't know anything about a fire..
Caleb : That man..... We already know his whereabout. Your brother been tracking him with the movement of his Rat. Let me update you what i know. Your brother goes by the name Hermit. He built a safe house (Pointting at the photo). Apparently while tracking his father, he also expose himself. Now that man know where your brother is.
Caleb : We plan to bring down your father. I communicate with Seer for few time. She prefer remain neutral. For your youngest sister, she goes by the name Iron Maiden. She barely remember any of the incident. She might not involve wish to involve in any of these. For your youngest brother, he goes by Seventh but we didnt contact him as we afraid his bad luck might spread toward our plan. The Dog is always on the move. So i hire expert to find him. Your mother in another hand is still Missing in action.
Caleb : As far as we goes, it left you and your elder sister. Do you know anything about your eldest sister?
Líf: From what I can tell...based on the information Seer has told me, the Abyss swallows anything that is lost. Socks in the laundry and under the bed, keys, spare change...my sister. But if what you've shown me is true...lost things are coming out. There might be a chance, but we'll probably have to go there in person to see if there's anything we can do...but in a completley different matter, what I've been trying to figure out how to ask... (she pulls out the five images representing siblings.) There are seven of us, but counting me here, there's only six represented. Someone is missing...are they dead? Does anyone even know? (she's clearly still a bit bewildered with the sudden rush of information)
Caleb : You see, even if we have the same goal, our method is slightly different. Your brother dont wish to involve any of you and he recruit some help to defeat your father. I on the other hand have some research on name magic. With all seven true name of his children. I can defeat him.
Caleb : Beside here to see whether you have news for your eldest sister, I here to seek your help on joining me to defeat your father.
Líf: I see...brother is...(she shakes her head to clear her thoughts) I see, you're seeking our true names, as well as additional aid...fine, I'll do my best to help, but first we're going to investigate the original house and the hole to the Abyss.
Líf: Yes, let's go ahead. (She pushes her one doubt to back of her mind. Yes, their true names being their father's weakness, but something about that idea seems fundamentally wrong, even if she can't pinpoint how.)
Líf: (riding Dvalinn across the Bifrost) Its at least good that home isn't overly far from here.
(Within the Reverse Mountain, Yriscal has gathered his forces. His lost gods stand before him while hundreds of children and rats surround them.)
Yriscal: Folks, its time. While I would rather have had Lord Erebus' full strength for the coming encounter, that cat and that mirror are too wary of me after our last attempt. That's why we go as we are, all of us. It is unfortunate that its come to this, but to accomplish my work I need to see my eldest son, that Hermit, and its been clear over the years that he'll never come visit us here. Tonight, we bring ourselves to him. Lord Erebus, are you carrying the required material?
Lord Erebus: (the dark shadow quivers on the ground, and bubbling it briefly shows what Yriscal asked about. Within its form, the shadow of darkness itself carries what appears to be the corpse of an archangel)
Yriscal: (he nods) Alright everyone, its showtime! (he pulls out his flute and with a flip and a flourish, one note teleports them all instantly. The Reverse Mountain is completely empty for the first time in centuries.)
(In time, they start approaching the currently snow-covered ruins of their destination village.)
(In just a moment, the full forces of Yriscal's army has arrived outside of Hermit's mansion. There, standing tall, is Yriscal in his pied clothes, holding his glimmering flute. A grin is stretched thin across his face as he surveys the exterior of the mansion)
(Flanking him are his Lost Gods: Mishipeshu, with dozens of underwater lynxes surrounding him; the shadow of Lord Erebus, weak from his true body's seal, but a fearsome object indeed; Astarte with her many weapons, a beautiful Phoenician goddess is armed to the teeth, and closest to Yriscal's side is an Egyptian woman with a cobra for a head, Renenutet one of the fiercest guardian deities.)
(Behind them is the main army; an uncountable number of rats and brainwashed children. They stretch as far as the horizon. Finally, up above in the sky is a looming threat: The Avian Scourge, a.k.a. the Greywings. Although missing their currently dead tactician, the remaining seven enormous birds are a menacing sight.)
Yriscal: (he yells out at the fortress of a house sarcastically) Oh, my son I've come for a visit! I can see you've been busy! Have you been practicing your violin lately?
Yriscal: (he begins laughing maniacally, never quite calming down as he settles himself, still chuckling occasionally) Lord Erebus, I hope you're hungry. Go ahead and eat!
(the shadow of Lord Erebus begins creeping to surround the set barrier, shadowy arms and jaws reaching out to bit and tear)
Líf: Yeah, Dvalinn halt.
(The deer stops and kneels, allowing Líf to get off.)
(The house itself looks in surprisingly good condition considering the surrounding homes and Father Caleb's photograph of the bedroom. As they approach the door they notice the lamplights inside are lit)
(Mishipeshu, the Underwater Panther's languid form prowls forward to meet one of the stone lions. On the other hand the other stone lion is directly intercepted by the most reckless of the Greywings, Garuda. The one-eyed magpie crashes into the stone lion directly from above.)
Seer: (she calls out without opening the door) Hello, Father Caleb, sister! Come in, I managed to light the hearth!
Seer: Well, I thought I'd try and help out with the current problem...are you going to open the door yet?
Líf: I...I'll do it. (she goes forward, skirting around Gabriel and opens the door)
(Looking around the house is remarkably clean and well-kept. At the table they see Seer sitting in one of the chairs, her current outfit [a pale green shirt and brown shorts] is covered in thousands of translucent green butterflies that are constantly arriving and leaving through the nearby window. Gabriel moves past Líf and Father Caleb to rest beside Seer.)
Seer: (she turns her head away from them) Hello!
(A light rustling sound is coming from the hearth, soon a five inch tall female figure is standing directly in front of it, a red ribbon in her hair and wrapped like a belt around her dress' waist.)
???: Hello, welcome to Red Ribbon's territory! (she looks at Líf carefully) Good to see another of the children again.
Gabriel: Of that we are in agreement, small one.
Seer: This girl is our homes' household goddess, Red Ribbon. It seems father had sealed her in the hearth with a curse some time ago. A friend of mine purified the curse recently, but Red Ribbon has done a lot of work removing all the rest of the curses from the walls and corners.
Yriscal: (with a grin, he gestures towards the four Jangseung approaching him)
Astarte: (she saunters forward to greet the four Jangseun warriors, a hatchet in one hand and her curved sword in the other) Why hello, gentleman, you're looking good for being wooden poles...(she licks her lips as she launches at them in a whirlwind of blades)
Yriscal: (he starts strolling on the path toward the Mansion casually, flanked by Renenutet whose cruel gaze instills fear in those who meet her eye.)
(The Greywings begin swooping over the battlefield and Mansion, either snatching up Jangseung to drop from on high or to tear into the roof with their talons. Roc, however, lands in the backyard and begins beating from his wings the searing desert wind and sand dunes at the rear walls and windows of the building)
(As he tangles with the stone lion, Mishipeshu roars. At that signal the dozens of underwater lynxes begin invading the battlefield, attacking the gnomes with ferocity. With that the rats begin crawling, searching for small entrances and holes in the Mansion.)
(Garuda struggles with the stone lion he chose to attack, currently attempting to snap at the lions wings viciously with his talons and beak)
Caleb : Another Gaudin`s Victim I see. Make sense, he need to go after the house spirit first before he commit....
The Janseung soldier hardly put up a fight againt astarte. The head of the janseung jump in. He slightly different as he holding two sword , he dash clashing against Astarte halbert with help of the remaining Janseung.
san phra phoom at the root top start shooting arrow from four direction to stop the Greywing from rampaging inside his spirit house.
All the garden gnome decreasing in number.
Before Gaudin reach the Door. The Main Door of the Mansion has two Chinese Poster. It wasnt there. It was just recently put on.
Zhou and You appear. Two chinese General who reinforcement send by alliance to help.
They holding their Glaive : Evil being, BEGONE!!!!!!! (Trying to suppress Gaudin and the Rat and hynotize children with their loud roar)
Red Ribbon: (the small being nods vigorously) Right right! (she hops about happily as she goes around tidying and cleaning)
Seer: (she turns her head to appear as though gazing at Father Caleb) Now, as for what I'm here about. I think I know what to do about the hole to the Abyss. There are a couple options. Second...I need you to hear me out on something, it has to do with my missing sibling, the one none of you have heard the whereabouts of. I've finally figured out why I can't see them...well I've at least cought a glimpse.
Astarte: Now this is what I call exciting! How about I show off...(she suddenly leaps high into the air...up...and up...until she simply appears to be a twinkling star in the sky. She then begins to fall; a shooting star directly headed down onto the battlefield.)
(The Greywings fall back, not including Garuda still fighting a stone lion, and Rock who is currently summoning an entire desert onto the back wall of the Mansion. Crocus suddenly flies over the battlefield and lets out a wild screech before loosing some words of power.)
Crocus: Beware, oh those who raise arms against the Emperor of Birds. (the san phra phum feels its strength suddenly sapped) Beware, oh beasts below the sky, for you are in the presence of the Emperor of Birds. (this further weakens the san phra phum; following the enormous condor flies directly at the san phra phum to attack it)
(While Garuda is hardly having any luck with his opponent, Mishipeshu crushes his jaw over the stone lion's head and roars.)
Mishipeshu: I am MISHIPESHU. Only one being on this earth is meant to oppose me, and he is basically a husk of his former self. You have no hope to stop my rampage! (he leaps off and into the main battlefield and starts crushing gnomes by the dozens)
Yriscal: (he hardly flinches) Clever, my boy! To station two Guardians, specifically two of the most accomplished defenders in the world's history...However, I've also brought a powerful defense.
(As he approaches, Renenutet stands closely in front of him, hissing as she approaches Zhou and You. Despite being unarmed, her horrid glare seems to weaken the two Guardian's strength by a small amount, however something seems off as she opens her mouth.)
Janseung General starting to fall back. His body which made of wood getting cut. Two of the soldier already broken. Only two left.
The Stone lion began to break by Mishipeshu. Another stone lion who fighting Garuda getting distract and wish to save its partner.
San Phra Phum `s arrow decrease as its power slowlly disappearing.
By he gaze of Renenutet, Zhou and You become paraylze but their figure giving off Fierce aura and combine their aura, they try to push back the evil wench. However, this leave their door behind wild open.
Hestia inside the hallway looking at Gaudin when the door open. She walk inner into the house and disappear.
In Hermit Room,
Hermit shivering and wrap in his tail : I cant run, there no where to ran. He coming for me
Seer: (she nods) A fearling. They're trapped inside of a fearling. I don't know how and I don't know why, but that's where they're conscious is, trapped inside one of those nightmarish things...
(Inside, a sinister stench is spreading. Earlier, no one had noted it, but Dis Pater was not among Yriscal's army outside, instead he had arisen from beneath the surface of the earth like a rotten fungus. The scent of metal and the dead emanates from the main hall as corpses puppeteered by gold and silver bars start wandering the halls. Dis Pater himself stands solemnly in the center of the hall.)
(With a heated yell Astarte lands as a blazing star, incinerating the remaining Janseung)
(Taking his chance, Garuda uses his opportunity to begin bashing the stone lion across the gate and into the stones. With a heavy crunching sound, Mishipeshu lands atop the stone lion he had cracked the head of, dropping lawn gnome rubble upon its body as he starts pummeling it with his paws.)
Mishipeshu: You are NOT the THUNDERBIRD.
(In a horrible cracking sound, Crocus tears across the roof, taking San Phra Phum's spirit house clean off the rooftop in a terrible rip of wood and tile.)
Renenutet: I am the ultimate defense. (A long breath of divine fire of Egypt is released upon Zhou and You)
Yriscal: (taking the opportunity he stealthily steps into the house and begins playing a haunting childhood melody on his pipe. Additionally, the hidden Lord Erebus slinks from the shadows where he'd lain in wait and curls around Yriscal's shadow like a ring of pure darkness)
With one Stone Lion Defeated, Stone lion unable to stop mishipeshu entering the mansion as well.
Same goes for Crocus side as well, Without any interfere, crocus get into the house together with Roc.
Before Astarte enter, the Jaensung General Grab her tightly prevent her from going in.
Zhou and You still trying to maintain the pressure to keeping Renenutet from getting in but they have fail and let many slip in.
Inside the Mansion.
Hestia : Close the Door
Two Hop appear out of thin air and close the Main Door and disappear.
Hestia sense Ysrical, Mishipeshu, crocus, roc, Dis Pater and Erebus . Total Six being has come into the house. She especially aware of dis pater as they both same as roman god.
The one being lock outside are Astarte, Garuda, Renenutet and others
Hestia : Master, they are in. (Appear behind Hermit Room)
Hermit : I know, i can sense him.
Hermit get up shivering and walking toward a table. He open the violin case and took out his violin. Hermit stand in a magic circle draw by Hestia. He start playing his Violin
The Violin sound travel across the entire mansion and yard. Upon the music start, the devil shoestring outside the house start to react. It start to recover the broken garden gnome. They recover into original state. All the Janseung soldier is restore back. The Garden Gnome and Janseung soldier start fighting back The Violin music Overshadow the childhood melody. Hynotize children all fainted as Violin music try to neutralize the control. Rat on the other hand still no being freed as they have follow Ysrical.
Zhou and You feel the power of Blessing from the music as well. They now on equal ground with Renenutet.
Unfortunately, the music unable to restore one of the broken lion and San Phra Phum'.
Hestia then teleport toward the main hall. She alone facing the six of them.
Hestia : I Welcome you all into WhisperWind Mansion. I hope you enjoy my master performance
Seer: You need to take Gabriel with you and capture the fearling in question. If you can do that you need to bring him to someone, anyone, who might be capable of separating it and them.
Red Ribbon: Pull apart, like bad stitching!
(As the battle wages on in renewed heat, the Greywings start taking turns flying across the field, attacking the Janseung soldier. On the ground Underwater Lynxes return to attacking the lawn gnomes, but exhaustion is causing their ability to defeat them waver. From inside however, Dis Pater's puppet corpses begin swarming out behind Zhou and You to join the battle.)
(Astarte starts a sultry walk to join Renenutet against Zhou and You.)
Mishipeshu: (he growls softly as he prowls through the mansion) None here can match me, goddess. I hope you at least put up a challenge.
(Crocus and Roc, with their enormous bodies taking up so much space, enter while doing as much damage to the property as necessary to allow them freedom of movement. Crocus does this by tearing apart through the roof and upper floors, while Roc starts sending the deserts out into the halls and rooms.)
Yriscal: (He walks confidently and continues playing his tune. With Lord Erebus at his feet he continues steadily making his way toward Hermit's location.)
Seer: (she shakes her head) Its old, the first created by Pitch Black on Earth specifically. I hope this isn't too difficult to ask of you and Gabriel.
(While the other transported ones start searching about, Mishipeshu begins by breaking all the faucets to cause water to start leaking. Said water begins gathering around Mishipeshu like the starts of a new river.)
Crocus: (he begins crushing through floors/ceilings as he makes his way through the upper floors)
Yriscal: (as he takes a breath to continue the song he smiles lightly at Hestia)
(With a satisfying snap, Garuda flops lifeless onto the ground. In seconds the monstrous magpie shrinks and twists until a single coin rests where he was, a magpie on one side and Garuda on the other.)
(Dis Pater's puppeted corpses finally start attacking the lawn gnomes and Jausung soldiers alongside the underwater lynxes)
Astarte: Hello, boys...(she cracks her whip at Zhou and You as she approaches)
Renenutet: (she bellows out another wave of flame at them)
Seer: (she nods with a faint smile) Please hurry, time is of the essence...meanwhile, Red Ribbon and I will continue with our attempts at fishing our fallen sister from the Abyss.
Líf: What about me? Is there anything I can do?
Mishipeshu: (he snarls) Its just fine, child. (his fur and scales raise as he turns his attention to Saunatonttu.)
Roc: I will snuff you out, whelp! (as he flaps his wings, sandstorm winds and dunes of sand start falling and flying from between his feathers)
Crocus: (he roars out words of power to weaken his foes in accordance to the conditions filled) Beware, oh beasts below the sky, for you are in the presence of the Emperor of Birds, and beware, oh those who seek to overwhelm the Emperor of Birds.
Dis Pater: (his face crinkles in annoyance as he raises his bident and points at the cat with it) What are you?
Yriscal: (smiling he places his pipe at his side, which despite him no longer playing, continues to play the haunting childhood memory) Why am I confident? This was an army built up to combat my enemies from the Hunter Association to the Guardian Alliance. While I admit its rather subpar for a siege, it is still made up of very powerful beings. Its a shame about the children losing so easily...but I will always have my rats. (he pauses to look at her as he takes a seat) Do you have oolong? I hear its very good.
Astarte: (she draws her spear alongside her whip) Alright boys, let's get busy...(she starts attacking Zhou and You incessently and simultaneously. On occasion she easily swaps weapons for optimal attacks)
Renenutet: (she backs up behind Astarte and turns her head, choosing instead to stare with her wicked eye once again)
(The remaining Greywings perform hit and run attacks against the stone lion, with the exception of Aquila, who has managed to distract herself with her reflection in a nearby lake. Avus, Isis, and Thistle continue in their attacks; Avus ruthlessly, Isis lightly as to not scratch the gold that covers her, Thistle calculated.)
Father Caleb : Gabriel, Would you mind to lead the way?
Saunatonttu : Then, i not doing a good job at all (He increase the Water beyond boiling point. The steam has hide the location of Saunatonttu from Mishipeshu`s sight.
Gabija Shoot continous Fire toward Roc And Trying to Roast Him from her small hand. (Her Hair change into Flame As well)
In the Laundry room, the Hop start teleporting everywhere in the room. The second condition dont seem to be fullfilling only the first as they only trying to Stall but not Overwhelming him. They teleporting in one direction together. It appear someone is directing and commanding the Hop
Domovoy : Well, i am just a cat, compare to you.... A Lost god i see.....(The Cat lick his pawn). Are you afraid of Cat?
Hestia : Of Course, (She hold a cup and Pour Oolong to his tea cup)
Hestia continue : I can see why you confident. You see Zhou and You, the door guardian is reinforcement from the alliance. Hve you ever wonder why do we hire outsider as a door guardian. Who do you think is the original of the Door Keeper of this mansion is? (She Smile)
At outside, with Zhou and you getting beaten up, A giant arm swing through the front yard and blow Renenutet and Astarte to the side. Zhou and You is heavily injure but manage to catch a breath. Stone Lion back down. A Giant Figure starting emerge from a portal. Gnome and Janseung Soldier back down as well.
Dvarapalaappear in the front yard. The Original door guardian has been awaken by change of Violin Music. A Giant Hindu Rahsaksa holding a mace appear in front of all. He start smashing, the first to hit is Garuda. He Wave his hand at other Greywing.
Gabriel: Of course, this shouldn't be difficult. Follow me. (he steps into a shadow on the wall)
Mishipeshu: You cannot defeat me. No being here is even conceptually able to harmme. (he goes wild, rampaging and thrashing up a literal storm. Cracks of lightning scatter throughout the room)
Roc: (with bewildered screams the twisted hawk continues throwing portions of the Arabian desert around him and at Gabija)
Crocus: (seeing that this is getting him nowhere, he stops attacking and settles down, roosting with a watchful eye) Perhaps...we might be able to negotiate something.
Dis Pater: I'm afraid of no cats, no lions, no panthers. No, the only thing I'm afraid of are the Ten Judges discovering I haven't fadeed and instead have been reduced to a miserly lackey of a madman. (he spits a gold tooth out onto the ground)
Yriscal: (one eyebrow raises quizically) Interesting question. (he sips the oolong tea) Oh, that is quite good. (he stops to appreciate Hermit's song) I will say I am glad he's managed to improve beyond what I even thought possible for such an instrument...now tell me, oh goddess of Hearth and Home, where do you think my rats are?
(Garuda has already been reduced to a token, so rather than getting injured the coin is knocked far into the air and seemingly lost. The other Greywings fly higher upwards, keeping their distance cautiously. Aquila is still enjoying her reflection, preening herself...)
Astarte: (getting up) Alright, now this is truly exciting...like a battle against a giant from my time of worship...(getting heated, Asterte begins emanating a sensuous violet aura. Each of her weapons begins hovering in a circle above her and she readies a bear-handed stance.)
Saunatonttu : Never try never know. (He control the water to spin. With the rapid spinning, the water temperature rise. )
Gabija : Desert Heat can only Boost my Flame. (She got more flame from the fireplace and send more fire over) I already got the permission room, the mistress to burn these entire room.
All hop is did not respond. They keep blinking. Only one voice echo : Negotiating? Interesting
Domovoy grin : Well you see (The Cat jump off from the sofa). You see, i know many thing. Such As I know very well i cant beat you and no point trying. I know who the ten judges you speaking of, I Know many "People" As well. All Cat Know each other. (Domovoy walk to a mirror hanging on the wall)
Hestia hesitate. She get the teapot and pour Yriscal another cup. Hestia : Rat is a Pest to every home. They can be everywhere. I afraid you have to enlight me.(She trying to sense around the house. She cant Sense anymore intruder)
Zhou and You is suprise. Zhou : Why is Dvarapala here?
You : Who is guarding the back door?
In order to arrange for a lock down, Dvarapala is guarding the back door, Zhou and you is guarding the front door. The backdoor is wide open now.
Zhou look around and found no sight of Renenutet He Shout: General, Get to the Back down door now
Janseung General and Remaining 2 soldier rush to the back door.
(Father Caleb finds himself and Gabriel in the deepest of Pitch's lairs that is not near the Earth's core. Down, deep and dark.)
Gabriel: Here...(he starts sniffing the ground)
Mishipeshu: (with a roar he leaps and bounds around the room, the lightning begins striking randomly, often, and extremely quickly)
Roc: (he screams)
Crocus: (he monologues) Hear me. My court and I..we do not desire our service to the Pied Piper. We have been bound to him since our creation at his hand, but we'd rather have our own freedom.
Dis Pater: (his knees quiver as he starts shuffling toward the Domovoy) What. What are you talking about!? What are you doing!?
Yriscal: Its nothing special...my rats are known to do the darndest of things? Did you know I drowned the first generation? (he laughs) What am I saying? Everyone knows that.
(Outside, Dvarapala's legs suddenly fall beneath the ground and he is quickly falling. Down below the uncountable number of rats have scraped away stone and earth and continue to do this, creating a growing pit below the front porch.)
(A grass snake takes the opportunity to slither through the backyard and into the Mansion...and strangely enough, far on the outskirts where he can hardly be seen, The Seventh sits with binoculars, a notebook, and a bag of peanuts. Unfortunately, it appears that the bottom of the bag had a leak on the way, as the snack bag is already nearly empty.)
The Seventh: This....this is ridiculous. What are they doing, all of them!? This number of divine and supernatural beings in combat of this kind is bound to shift luck, karma, and fate literally everywhere.
Father Caleb aim himself : Can you sense pitch around?
Saunatottu unable to maintain the water flow as the lightning strike. His formation break. Saunatottu escape inside the steam as if one lightning strike can kill him already. His role is only to stall time. The Bathroom Barrier break. Mishipeshu is free from the bathroom.
The voice sound again : If you wish to break free from the curse, then stay here. We can peacefully wait for both of our boss to settle them thing.
Domovoy grin : You see, I have a certain Cat friend that have an unsettle score with your party.
Domovoy touch the mirror with her cat pawn. It cast a summoning spell
Domovoy : You Know We bought this from Dokushensha. It act as a portal.
Hestia smile and remain her calmness. Hestia unable to hear the loud noise but can guess what happening Already. Hestia : I guess that Rat is Rat after all.
Hestia can sense few has got into the house and saunatottu has lose. Hestia cast Relocation again. The Green Snake is relocate into a Artic.
With Dvarapala`s heavy weight, it escalate the ground sinking. Dvarapala stomp his feet killing many rat and swinging his club at the Greywing at the same time.
Janseung General has reach the backdoor and see the backdoor while open. He believe Renenutet has got into the house already.
At Hermit Room,
His Violin string break. The Violin has reach its limit. Hermit can sense something cause the violin to break faster than it should be.
Hermit look at the box on the table. Within the Box that Zhou and You pass to him earlier, It has a strange orb that is casting for unknown spell. Hermit sit down on his chair holding his cane waiting.
Father caleb then become.leas cautious : but i can sense a lot nightmare remakn
The next room mishipeshu goes , he reach a kitchen. A chef is seen preparing for dinner
Domovoy turn into giant cat and block the attack with his giant body.
Domovoy :it rude to interrupt other calling. What the matter
At artic, zarashiki appear , a girl in kimono look at samarita. Zarawashiki : my Master wasnt expecting someone like you. Who are you.
Apparently all the house spirit only be brief about the sibling and ysrical army.
Hestia notice his change of calmness and decide to manipulate this chance.
Hestia : what the matter, is there someone you wish to see?
father caleb pour some holy water on himself. The nightmare sense the power of blessing water and stay away
Zhao shen then throw a giant glutinous cake toward mishipeshu. It stick him on the floor like a glue.
Zarawashiki hesitate as more ally mean more chances of them winning
Domovoy : do you think you the first one wanna destroy this mirror.
Domovoy : hestia, what i am doing is best for hermit.
The mirror react strongly. Domovoy telekinetic the entire sofa set toward dis pater
Hestia can sense all the guardian in the room.has lose or retreat
Hestia : as much as i dont want to, i afraid our friendly conversation end here.
The room surrounding change again. A staircase with a sphinx appaear.
Hestia : above these staircase to the left is master room but you have to get pass me first.
Hestia manipulate the carpet and turning it into a giant mouth and trying tk swallow yriscal
Samaritana; I see. (her expression slowly shifts to stormy) I left because some rotten being had caused my husband's soul to be twisted and corrupted through unseen means and unseen motives. The reason for my absence was to find and eradicate said being. Its been so long, and I've made so little progress, that there's nothing left of my husband in that man, and so I've come to remove him before proceeding back to searching for the culprit.
Crocus: (he flies to go pick up the charred Roc from the fireplace)
Mishipeshu: (in blind rage he begins a stormy rampage alongside a river of collected water from the bathroom and kitchen)
Yriscal: I just need your original name...and it seems we've all forgotten each of you seven's somehow. However, I'm sure they'll come to me when I study each of you and then...
(A shadowy blob drops from the ceiling. Lord Erebus reveals the full archangel corpse)
Yriscal: I'll immediatly use all seven of you children's names as ingredients to finish this being. For in a marble from a blue demon I saw the end of the world, and that end was started by this thing before me. (he points downward at the archangel corpse atop the darkest shadow) Your names will truly be gone forever, all towards this inevitable future I saw in the marble that day. (he laughs giddily)
Yriscal: To think...how it all started with the marble I bought during one of my trips with the musical troupe...and how it all slowly fell into place all the way up to now. The curse studies, the voices, the flute and Hamelin. A tiny marble started this all! Isn't that funny Roze?
(Yriscal pauses, and just as soon as Hermit's original name was uttered it is pulled and stretched and quiet, and there in Yriscal's palm is a translucent sphere. Inside the sphere a silent violin plays an unheard tune)
Sphinx ask again : Do you have any regret of what happen to all of your children.
Hermit headache : Roze....
Hermit look at the archangel corpse : Evil.... You have fallen so far Papa. Pure Madness. You abandon your own family just for these absurd reason. I saw my sister turn into Steel, I saw another fall into eternal abyss. I saw my mother Left Us!!!! I was there at the church when you bury gabriel.!!! I run from years ago. I wont let you collect all my sibling name. NEVER!!!
Hermit use his remaining breath shout out : Let End This Here!!!! There No More Running !!!! (He grab hold of the Orb he got from Zhou and You)
Hermit : Activate Lock Down Spell.
A sphere completely cover the entire mansion together with its front yard.
Hestia and other house spirit already save the children and move outside the lock down range.
Hestia : Will the destiny change. (She looking at the dawn, the night raid of Yriscal army)
At Caleb side
Caleb dash toward and use his machine gun to startled the Fearling. He realize he making too much noise with the gun, He imeediately throw it away and switch to close combat. He took out his Bible and open it. Pages of holy scribe fly out toward the fearling.
Samaritana: (she turns to glare at him as the fireball is swallowed by karma) That. Was rude. (Hermit's staff catches on fire after a lash of karma whips across him)
(Inside the house he sees Seer and a handsome Polish man in his 40s. Sitting beside the hole to the Abyss, the man has a fishing pole trailing into the Abyss. A pile of socks, keys, loose change, a cage of mice, a cage of hamsters, and a tank of goldfish are to the side. The man himself seems like he doesn't quite exit)
Seer: A bit to the left, you're going to want to slack the line a little bit.
Strange Man: Like this?
Seer: Right, you're getting closer to her!
Líf: (she sees Father Caleb and Gabriel come in and waves them over. Red Ribbon is standing on her shoulder) Seer got this guy to come and try fish our sister out of the Abyss. I don't know how this is even supposed to work, but he's definitely getting stuff out...He calls himself Major Fraser.
Major Fraser: (he waves at them as he reels in a pillow)
Seer: Aw...just a bit more and you would have gotten the bed. One more time!
Hermit : This Area is under complete lock down. There No escape Mother Dear.
Samaritana jump out of the window to the backyard but the Lock down is Still active. However the sunlight become stronger and stronger.
Hermit : Father Dear, Do you know who Zhou and You serve? Yes I have alliance myself with their master. I may not be able to defeated you myself but Celestial Being able to. It a complete Lock Down. There no escape
Caleb look at his fishing rod and wonder what kind of wonder in the world able to get through and work in the Void Region.
Yriscal: (he looks up at the sky from his location lying on the ground and starts laughing. He starts reciting a poem)
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Samaritana: (she stomps down on Yriscal's chest) Silence. (she gazes up at Hermit) What exactly have you do-(she stops, turning quickly to look past the barrier. Something is happening outside.)
Major Fraser: (talking to Seer) You know, you kids remind me of my own children...(he whistles)
Seer: Hm, what's this? (she notices a piece of paper in her hand) Líf, can you read this for me?
Líf: (she takes the slip of paper, clearing her throat) "You will be reunited with your eldest sister soon. That is good. I have sent this message to help with one detail: you sister may be referred to as the Empress of Lost Things in place of her missing name. That is all. ~ Epithet of the Nameless Few." ...What in the world? Where did this come from?
Major Fraser: (he grips his pole) I think I have her!
Seer: You do!? Quick, don't lose your grip, wind with a rhythm.
(No longer watching, the Seventh is seen tripping, constantly and unable to stop himself, a force of misfortune heading in their direction. In his hands is the broken mirror of an ancient sun, Amaterasu, currently releasing the sickly green light. In moments he, a storm of misfortune, and the ominously glowing and shattered Yata-No-Kagami of the long-gone sun spirit, are going to crash into the barrier.)
(In a few moments Major Fraser struggles as they reach the last several feet and the weight of the bed and the Fallen Gaudin are properly felt as they approach the edge of the Abyss)
The Seventh: (he trips and falls and he drops the mirror. As he leans down to pick it up) Sorry about that, brother. I was getting up to leave and tripped on a root...and, well you can see how that escalated.
Major Fraser: (with a final heave he tugs a bed out of the hole to the Abyss. Strangely, the hole closes up directly after. Sleeping on the bed is a young woman with red hair and tan skin.) We got her.
Seer: (she breathes out a sigh of relief, then points at Father Caleb) Then the only one left trapped is there.
The Seventh: (his eyes widen) True names!? ****. (He tightly grips his mirror and starts running, however looking closely would reveal his shoelaces have become untied. Its only a matter of time before he trips again.)
(From the room they had been in, Lord Erebus can be seen moving, carrying both the archangel's corpse and the sphere contianing the name Roze. The sphere is glowing again, the miniature violin playing its silent tune.)
Yriscal: (he attempts to get up but Samaritana slams him down into the ground again)
Samaritana: Yriscal Gaudin, today is the day I end your life.
(Lord Erebus shrinks in on itself, swallowing its burdens into its body for storage. He darts away among shadows.)
Yriscal: Honey, you don't have to keep doing this.
(Samaritana kicks again, sending Yriscal into a tree with a crack)
Samaritana: You are the scum of the Earth.
Yriscal: ...(he returns to muttering 'There was a Crooked Man')
Samaritana: (She frowns) What are you saying, this nonsense about a crooked man as your final moments dawn upon you? No, you're problems were caused by the foul blue demon.
Yriscal: (he laughs wryly as he looks between Hermit and Samaritana) I never said that. (he holds onto his left arm as he stands up, the humerus seemingly broken) I said the marble was from a demon, I never said it was a demon who gave me the marble. It was a very Crooked Man. (he chuckles) Perhaps if I sing it again? I have nothing left to lose to him after all (he taps his head and makes a mocking sound of something hollow)
Gabriel: Alright. Seer, Líf, take care.
Seer: Okay, Gabriel, try not to accidentally get exorcised.
Gabriel: (he huffs) Even if I am the Black Shuck, I'm still also the Church Grim. They wouldn't dare try.
Gabriel: (he glances at Father Caleb) Do you know them?
Yriscal: (he laughs) A choice is it? Perhaps there was a choice somewhere along the way, but I've since become far too deluded and addled to remember. (he leans against the tree) But so they say, that which the Crooked Man holds and owns, so too does it become crooked. Perhaps...I thought I had no other choice, but let's stop talking about my hypotheticals! I'm positively WICKED!(he smiles crookedly as he leans forward and whispers loudly) There is a hand holding my brain. (he starts laughing maniacally, breathing heavily and coughing from his wounds)
Samaritana: (In disgust she steps away from him) What in the world is wrong with you?
Yriscal: Were you not paying attention!? Whoever I was, he was gone long before you even realized, given in to whatever delusions and nightmares might have kept him up at night, he might-
(He's cut off as a tall, African woman in white robes and a white mask begins reading from a long scroll. The scroll is tattered, and on its back is a depiction of a piper of many colors in front of a mountain. A river flows from one side of the mountain, while a flood of rats swarms the other side. No one knows when this woman arrived.)
Christen: Yriscal Gaudin. He grew up spry and mischevious, without a home but with a wit to swindle his for his survival. The man became a musician and leader of a troupe of musicians. He eventually married the serpent queen, Samaritana, adopted a hunting dog, and had seven children whose real names are lost from our archives. On a trip to England, Yriscal Gaudin ran into a man with a crooked back, a crooked heart, and a crooked soul, among many other crooked things. From the Crooked Man, who showed his enjoyment of the last show of the troupe's visit with a merry cheer, Yriscal Gaudin was given a sinister gift. A demon's marble, and the Crooked Man told Yriscal Gaudin that the marble would show his and his family's future...(she pauses to face each of the three of them in turn, as well as the Seventh, who had tripped no less than 20 feet from where he had started running)
Gabriel: (He yelps, leaping out of the way. He growls before speaking) What do you think you're doing!?
Christen: (she nods) Yriscal Gaudin peered into the marble the night before the troupe would leave England and back towards their respective homes back on the mainland. What he saw terrified him.
Christen: (She glares at Yriscal, a whisper of red flame heating at her brow like a crown. However as quickly as that appeared it was gone, as though everyone had simply imagined it.) It was true, the marble had shown the future, but it was a world gone hollow of mankind. A strange archangel had destroyed all of them, and somehow Yriscal's family was central in this horrible armageddon. Yriscal had a choice, to either ignore it, or to attempt to put a stop to it. However, it should be said that as you may have deduced by now, this marble is a creation of the blue demon, Imp. We do not know how the Crooked Man obtained this marble, but what we do know is that the use of any of Imp's tools will eat away at humanity to grant the demon his sustenance. This marble had already planted a kernal of wickedness within the man's mind.
(She looks at them all solemnly before rolling the scroll to change what is being read.)
Christen: There was now a third option whispering in the back of his ear. "You, Yriscal. You Piper. It is you who can bring this future to fruition. You must, for it has already been foretold." and Yriscal did not understand what had happened. Time would then pass as he made his return trip. Now, what choice do you think Yriscal made?
Yriscal: To create the Apocalypse! Its obvious isn't it! Look at what I'm doing; I've gathered the archangel's corpse, and I'm collecting my children's original names as sacrifice to create its life! Its obvious just looking at me now, there's no need to read up on the past!
Christen: ...(she looks directly at Hermit, waiting for his answer to the question)
Gabriel: (he growls, low and loud) Stop fighting, we have business to attend to.
Christen: (she continues reading with a sigh) Yriscal Gaudin attempted to prevent the ending of the world. With simple logic, it only made sense that if his enemy would be an angel, he would need to study the art of curses. However, the seed of corruption grew, and it whispered to him: "You need to practice what you study, in order to prepare yourself." "You need test subjects, just so you know you're doing this right." and "You can do it, no you have to do it, in order to achieve your goals."
Yriscal: Get away from me, all of you!
(Samaritana grabs him by the collar to prevent him from running)
Christen: And so, as it happens, Yriscal's reason began eroding. Whatever morals he had died. And while he never truly had an empathy for others, he gained a sense of satisfaction from the seed of corruption that continued to sway his choices into that which is wicked. Then, the story as you know it, began. (she closes the scroll) Are there any questions?
Ramano notice christen leave and he smile : bon voyage. We be visiting the library soon.
Ramano turn and look at yriscal : poor you, not looking so well are we?
Slenderman appear behind ramano : well , mistress of karma, you dont think your husband wont have any ally? After all, we will back him up if he goes to a war. Although i quite surprise what his son capable off.
Christen: (her body tenses hearing his words, and she hurries back to warn the rest of the Nameless Few)
Yriscal: I've been far better. (he looks over at the Seventh) And lo, I behold Konrad flee his father's machinations. (in his right hand a sphere appears, inside is a rat biting its own tail. He drops the orb, where a waiting Lord Erebus catches the second sacrifice of a name)
Samaritana: What do you even hope to accomplish with this fool's errand?!
Gabriel: (he sniffs around) So you're sure that this will work?
(Are you talking about the identity of the last child?)
Gabriel: What's this Father Caleb? There's seems to be an obstacle.
Samaritana: I can't agree to that. (She doesn't move, concious of Ramano's strength, as well as Slenderman standing tall behind him. She glances at Hermit as well, a passing worry that is quickly extinguished)
The Seventh: (he stands up) Hey now, today's been a bad enough day, why make it worse by completing Yriscal's ritual? (he leans back, glancing into his mirror) Oh, actually I hope good old SiS didn't notice me here when misfortune's hand brought me and the mirror to break the barrier. We don't need a complete confrontation here.
Ramano: Very Well (He start chanting) Slenderman guarding behind him
Happy tear off her face again and his next face look similar to Biancabella. Happy : Do you miss you Sister? Let talk while Ramano is busy with his business.
Happy : Yriscal, you dont have any use of your dear son anymore right?
Happy step on Hermit injure body on the ground with Biancabella face.
Caleb : These two is happy prince and waiting wife of the Six Virtue. They are the guardian spirit of Vatican. Body guard of Archbishiop. You cannot hesitate while i buy you the time. At most, i can only buy you 2 minute. If Other arrive, they no way we can escape.
Yriscal: No, I've already retrieved his original name for the sacrifice. There's nothing left I need from him.
Samaritana: (she hisses at all four of them) Curse ALL of you! (she begins chanting, casting enchantments onto the surrounding soil and grass, creating earthen walls between them. A fortress is formed from Hermit's former lawn. The ground beneath Hermit pulls him into a Hermit-shaped hole, leaving Happy above ground and taking Hermit somewhere safe)
Gabriel: ...(he grabs Father Caleb's bible in his mouth and get's ready for Father Caleb's orders)
Samaritana: (she swears as she feels the seal break around them. She starts throwing black serpents of karmic energy hissing at them)
Yriscal: (he pulls out a notebook and crosses out two numbers, leaving 5 more) Alright, I think I'll be targetting the Iron Maiden next, being oblivious of all these family schemes, her name should be easy to grasp. (he shouts as he waves at Samaritana, ducking as one of the karmic serpents flies over his head)
Yriscal: Bye honey! I'll see you later, probably!
Gabriel: (he sinks into his shadow as he rushes across the ground. Father Caleb can hear the faint bleating of a goat as he moves)
Slenderman block the Karma from Samaritana from hitting Ramano.
Ramano : We need to leave now, Yriscal. Rea has notice us. Universe Detective probablly on their way flying over here.
Happy : I wont want to face "her" (Grin)
Slenderman Engulf Yriscal, Ramano and Happy in his shadow.
Ramano : So Long
As Gabriel move in the Shadow. He sudden stop moving forward. An unseen force is holding him in place. Caleb saw the shadow stop moving and realize the waiting statue has cast a stop spell on the shadow.
Caleb in demon form breath fire at Waiting Statue. The spell break and Gabriel slip into the main hall.
Samaritana: (she screams in rage before dispersing her enchantments. As the lawn returns to normal, Hermit is returned back to the surface. She goes over to him.) Is this the end for you? Your life's work has come tumbling down, and in addition to that it appears that a seal has been broken bcause of it. (she kneels down to look at him)
Gabriel: (he hurries, searching for the location of the Archbishop)
Hestia and all the house spirit appear around hermit
Red dress, white shirt , jaesaueng soldier, stone lion , zhou and you, zarawashiki , zhou shen, jack o bowl and hop. All the ancestor spirit and gnome.
All house spirit is crying
Hermit : hestia, casualty?
Hestia : All evacuate. One stone lion, phar phoon, few janseung soldier and gnome are dead. Other are all well thx to you. and domovoy missing
Heemit :good. Good thank you all for the long service. I truly grateful.
Hermit : tell caleb, i no longer able to help him. Hestia, thanks for all your care all these years. You really fill my heart for my lose of family
The hop bring the violin to hermit. Hermit bring himself up barely and start playing using the broken violin. All house spirit try to stop weeping. The broken violin music start playong for almost two minute.
Hermit pass away. Hw still holding the violin while pass away. Hermit fallen in the raid of yriscal toward whisperwind mansion
Samaritana: (silently she conjures an earthen casket around Hermit's body before incinerating the inside with intense heat. She then forms the casket into an urn and picks up the ashes.) Is there anyone left who would like to perform rites? (she waits for an answer first)
Gabriel: (he growls as he paces around the Archbishop) This is of utmost importance.
Samaritana: ....Well, it is her that he said he's after next. (she stops, pondering) This is an issue though, unlike most of them, she's not usually confined to a single location. But at the same time...if Yriscal were to approach her alone, he won't be getting out, it'd be impossible for him to escape. No one escapes the Room of Questioning alone until all questions she has for you are answered.
Gabriel: (he howls long and hard, then takes notice of the golden color of the Fearling he steps back with a slight whimper and a huff) What in the world!?
Hestia : I hope so.... I have a house spirit friend that live in your previous house. They can track Iron maiden through her origin body. After all, advance tracking spell can be done. We be taking our leave. If we have chances, let hope we run into each other next time.
With the fearling change into a good dream. It slowly disappear and leave a girl body on the ground.
Gabriel: (he turns his head sceptically to look at the Archbishop before turning back) If I didn't know any better I'd say he was connected to the Gate of Sleepers...regardless, how fares Father Caleb?
Gabriel: Hm, that shouldn't be a problem. (he pauses) Also, could the other members of the Vatican be notified of my alignment? I was attacked upon arrival, despite working closely with the Church. I know I only work within our graveyards, but should be no stranger here. Much less something to be killed on sight.
(Inside, the 'Empress of Lost Things' opens her eyes, awake. The other's there breathe out a sigh of relief none knew they were holding.)
Empress of Lost Things: (she breaths, testing her throat. Having not spoken in centuries, she's unsure how she'll sound. A rasp is all that comes out for now, but she's quickly recovering.)
Seer: Now, now, sister. Take it easy, we've got you.
Líf: That's right! For now you just need to sit up a bit.
Red Ribbon: Sit up! Long time for fresh air. (She causes one of the windows to fly open, allowing the cold breeze to blow in from outside)
Major Fraser: (standing up and stretching) Well, that should have been all you needed me for.
Líf: (she narrows her eyes, turning to look at him) Can you cook?
Major Fraser: (a bit taken aback) Y-yes?
Líf: (she nods) Good, you and Red Ribbon go the stove and make some soup, she has to be hungry.
(With a blink, Major Fraser allows Red Ribbon to climb up to his shoulder and he goes over to start cooking.)
Anansi : My apologize, Not many is clever like me. Gold and stone attack you earlier because this is Archbishop chamber. Usually anyone who enter will be judge no matter who. Mikael is different, he is very arrogant. You dont see Olivia attack you right?
A Samurai, An Gentleman and An old Woman, A Man in Green Robe and Pointy Hat.
The Evil Presence is within reach of Detection.
Zarlak (MAn in Green Robe) : Ahahahahahah, Who our Target this time?? I havent be out for so long.
Author (Gentleman) : Let me see, Our target from elder this time is Fountain of Youth?
Baba Yaga (Old Woman) : I need some year off my skin
Murasame (Samurai) : Focus on the mission. We cannot fail, she dont usually out from Idunn Garden.
Gabriel: That's true...hm, well I'll just have to talk to him another time...Well, I'll get going then, could you place the girl on my back for me?
Dvalinn: (The great deer pokes his head through the open window and huffs loudly)
Seer: (She freezes as she hums, Dvalinn's sound causing her to remember something) Ah! I wasn't paying attention! (she tilts her head and then stands up with a start) Alright everyone we have a problem. Enemies approaching!
Major Fraser: (he looks over at her from the kitchen) What?
Líf: But why? The house is supposed to be hidden!
Red Ribbon: All curses purged from house; cloaking curse included.
Dvalinn: (he huffs as he turns his head to look in the direction of the approaching enemies, a gentle wind rising around him)
Empress of Lost Things: (she turns to sit perpindicular with her bed, a worried expression on her face)
Gabriel: (he growls, sniffing the air) Is that you Billy? (he huffs) I see, you're here on orders aren't you. Its unfortunate, but I do have to pass today. (he sinks into his own shadow to attempt to shift out of Billy's range)
Seer: (she laughs) Oh, come in, if you stay out there much longer you'll be in danger. Red Ribbon, unlock if you would!
Red Ribbon: Okay! (the door swings open on its own)
(Samaritana notices the five Dark Mercenaries as she approaches, slowing down to keep her distance and attempt to identify them.)
billy order the sun eagle to glow and dismiss all the shadow.
Jane come : let me introduce myself. I am jane from rip department of universe office. I am here to investigate the crack in the space. It appear some evil is approach as well. Nice to be your acquaitance
Jane suprise to see major fraser here but pretending she dont know him
At far away, author : this woman dont look like normal human as well.
Zarlak : doesnt mattet all.gonna die anyway. I am heading in
Baba yaga : the house is shield.
Zarlak : no matter, we are expert remember.
Murasame look at the forest surrounding the house. He holding his katana unwaver.
Gabriel: I don't want to fight you Billy...but if the Chaos Cycle is trying to get to one of my charges I have no choice. (he growls, sniffing the air)
Seer: (facing away from them, as she can see everything she shouldn't, she clearly sees Nick and laughs) 'Jane', is it? Don't worry about the crack, it was here a long, long, long time, and it just closed see? (she waves in the direction of Empress of Lost Things who is currently eating soup that Major Fraser had recently finished cooking)
Major Fraser: The crack is resolved.
Seer: As for the evil...Red Ribbon, you only pulled father's curses out of the house, right?
Red Ribbon: Right, Red Ribbon very thorough!
Seer: Good, then whatever's left in the yard is probably still there, hopefully they trigger.
Líf: Hm, then Dvalinn should come inside shouldn't he?
Red Ribbon: (she sticks out her tongue) No room for god-deer.
Samaritana: (she chants, casting enchantments on the trees, making them into soldiers)
Seer: (Ignoring Zarlak as she can clearly see him) Relax, officer sir. As a Guardian I can guarantee that the only things that came out were what we got Major Fraser her to fish out. Líf, can you show him for me?
Líf: Him? (she looks at Jane confused) Uh, right. Major Fraser fished out these pairless socks, some keys, some loose change, a cage-worth of mice, hamsters, and a tank-worth of goldfish. When he finally got out sister and bed out the hole...closed for some reason.
Empress of Lost Things: (she coughs as she looks at Jane) H...hi.
Samaritana: (still in her serpent form, she hisses softly, calling more snakes to the forest. Her enchanted tree soldiers begin to creak and move to obstruct the movements of all the Dark Mercenaries still in the forest)
Gabriel: (he growls, looking at Cath) And why is that?
Seer: (she startles, then reaches towards Red Ribbon) Don't do it!
Red Ribbon: NO! (she starts crying loudly, causing the front door to swing wide open)
Major Fraser: (he starts walking toward the front door, but briefly looks at Jane) Correct, we will double confirm this later. (he pulls out several bottles of chemicals from one of his pockets and starts mixing them)
Empress of Lost Things: (she starts breathing heavily as from her seat on her bed he can see everything outside the door)
Girl: (the currently unnamed child opens her eyes, waking up, seeing the mist coming towards them) Is he bad?
Gabriel: What, yes?
Girl: Okay. (her eyes flare and her burnt hair goes alight with fire. As she stares at Cath he would feel his existence heat up from the inside)
Gabriel: ...(he's thinking about the fearling that held her and start connecting dots as he back away from Cath) ...That nightmare must have been using the curse to harm humans directly...spontaneous combustion cases...of course, but now she's the one in control. (he shivers)
Major Fraser: You won't be taking the Fountain, wizard.
Seer: (she's focusing, noticing the battles happening) Oh no...
Empress of Lost Things: (she looks at the nervous Líf, then at Dvalinn who's attempting to walk through the window to protect his mistress, and then back at Zarlack. Then she points at him on instinct. There is no immediate effect.)
Samaritana: (She starts by enchanting nearby insects, causing them to grow massive in size and attack the robots and Author)
Samaritan: (she shouts upward, projecting her voice from all the snakes below) Tell me, Treacherous one, have you yet paid for your numerous sins? If so, you must know me, and what I plan to do with you...
Girl: (she stands up off of Gabriel's back and inhales, breathing in all the fire that Cath has released. Then, she starts blows outward, the fire turned to ash that flurries around Cath's face) Ashes, ashes, burn down to the ground. (Her gaze continues burning him form the inside out)
Gabriel: What...what in the world have we brought into this world Father Caleb, Archbishop...
Red Ribbon: (she screams in grief, her high pitched voice causing everyones ears to ring. The porch suddenly tilts, throwing Zarlak, Pigman, and the remaining 2 hostages fully inside)
Empress of Lost Things: (she continues pointing at Zarlak, and soon he can feel something weighing him down. His clothing are being quickly filled with lost coins and keys, from his pockets to his shoes, and his hat)
Samaritana: Baba Yaga-a-a-a...perhaps today you will pay for your sins...
Gabriel: ...This...isn't good. (he tries approaching the unnamed girl, but the fire burning her hair is too strong)
(Dvalinn manages to squeeze through the window, stepping in front of Líf to defender. At this point its obvious that she is the Fountain of Youth.)
Seer: ...(she sighs, one of her butterflies lands on Zarlak's ear and shouts a whisper) Boo!
Empress of Lost Things: (she speaks a word, her voice croaking out) Open.
(below Zarlak, the hole to the Abyss suddenly begins opening)
Major Fraser: (he points at Pigman) How about you let go of those two innocents and let's you and I brawl, one on one. (he rolls up his sleeves and raises his fists in a boxing stance) I've known a few good warriors in my time.
(Samaritana shifts back into her human form and looks at the attacking eagles and mongoose. Around her, the black energy of karma is already swirling around. It appears that karma itself is eager to see Baba Yaga and Author so close. A serpentine tendril even whips out at Baba Yaga of its own volition)
Samaritana: Very well! It appears you have chosen today to recieve your judgement. (she enchants the soil and stone around her. From it fly upward stone hawks to combat eagles and run forth earthen jackals to swallow the mongoose.)
(The water sizzles, only slightly dampening the bright flames, but its enough. Gabriel knocks her over.)
Gabriel: Calm down, sleep for now...
Seer: (she frowns, turning her stare directly at Hollow. Despite his invisibility, it seems Seer is looking as though he never was invisible.) I can't believe you knocked out poor Red Ribbon like that...(she sighs) No wonder no one else was reacting to you, you're invisible aren't you! I can't tell, but I guess that means I can see you no matter what then. If you were to flee, I will never lose you... (several transluscent butterflies can be seen flying away through the window) I'm calling higher ups, this is a high level situation. I hope they can get here in good time.
Empress of Lost Things: (she frowns squinting at the floating Zarlak. She raises her hand and the prow of a lost ship, the U.S.S. Cyclops, rams upwards from the hole at him)
Dvalinn: (the deer snorts as he spits something out at the Warlock Scarf; it appears to be leaves from Yggdrasil)
Major Fraser: Fine then! Don't brawl.
Seer: Major Fraser, follow my orders.
Major Fraser: Alright?
(Seer then starts giving Major Fraser instruction. Following them exactly, he draws his pocketknife and begins attacking Hollow with alarming accuracy.)
Samaritana: Perhaps not today, then Baba Yaga. But remember! Your karma debt will soon be payed or...! (A snake-like whip of karma flies from Samaritana's aura aiming for Baba Yaga's throat. She then looks at Murasame) Greetings, Curse Sword.
Baba Yaga frightened and scared to die. She quickly flee toward the house.
Murasame : Your karma will not work on me. I have no Karma.
All his karma has already be paid by all the user previously.
Murasame : Look like i am a bad match up to you.
Billy send a crow and land on Murasame.
Billy : Something wrong. Another Two daughter of Yriscal is in the house beside Fountain of youth. This snake lady not in report as well. I encounter another one when i facing the Black Shuck. It completely different from what the report say.
Murasame :Who did the report? Regardless Our Mission priorirty is only Fountain of youth. (he draw his sword)
Hollow injure but able to dodge lethal blow. Hollow is not use to fighting on someone who can see him. Hollow : Bad Match up!!!!
Zarlak : Pig!!!! Attack that Woman (Refer To the empress of Lost Thing)
Pigman did not hesitate as she look human. He Carry the Entire Cupboard and throw over.
Zarlak scarf is block by Yggdrasil Leaves. Zarlak hold his hand toward the Deceased Soul. Zarlak : I sacrifice the Soul. Magic Lock !!!!!!! (The Deceased Soul hostage burn and a Chain is Conjure around Lif. The Chain connect to Zarlak`s Hand) .
(In her blind fright, Baba Yaga does not notice Yriscal's leftover curses as she rushes towards the house. She triggers several. One summons causes a section of the earth to grow teeth and bite at her, another summons burning ropes that try to coil around her, the third causes her vision to blur, the fourth creates hail only above her, the fifth breaks her right hand, and a sixth turns her around.)
Samaritana: You may not be affected by karma, but I am still an enchantress. (With a hiss and some words every single sleeping snake is turned into a sword. She picks one up.) I admit that this will be difficult, however.
(Seer continues aiding Major Fraser in neutralizing Hollow. Additionally, her butteflies fly to and whisper the situation to several high ranking Guardians as well as members of the Magic Council.)
Empress of Lost Things: (with a wave, the cupboard is swallowed by a hole to the Abyss that opens in midair. From it, lost bullets, arrows, frisbees, and boomerangs fly out at Pigman)
Líf: (she screams in fear)
Dvalinn: (he huffs, and the Yggdrasil leaves are blown over to the remaining hostage, the Elderly Tree Spirit)
Baba yaga thought she escape the Karma but She trigger all those curse. Maybe this is her karma. Baba Yaga stuck on the bite and hang on the rope with her eyesight bluring and hail continue to drop on her.
Murasame : Enchantress want a Sword fight? Laughable
Author : Chapter of War (He summon thousand of Weapon drop from his book, Halberd, Axe, Spear, Hammer, Polearm , glaive, blade, Sword, and all other came flying down)
Pigman just rush toward blindly. Arrow, Bullet Bommerang all hit him but he still charges blindly with His butcher Knife in his hand.
Zarlak then pull the chain holding Lif . He already get hold of Lif wanting to make his escape. The Scard attack the Deer again while escaping. The Scarf acting on its own separately with Zarlak`s thought
Hollow get thing overwhelm by Major Fraser and Seer combination. Billy who calm analyze the situation with bird nearby. He start sending Animal toward the house for reinforcement.
At Other places
One Butterfly goes to Isaac Newton, Isaac Newton refuse to help as he think this matter dont concern him.
One Butterfly goes to Paracelsius, but she reply she unable to help as she has class

One butterfly particularly fly to Mimir who close with Seer. Mimir will send someone but it wont be fast.
One Butterfly head toward guardian area. The butterfly witness something horrible. The Guardian alliance who in charge by SIS now. The Sun Palace has been under attack. Many guardian is busy fighting one particular Enemy. Anti.
Samaritana: (She parries. It seems that while she's no master, she does have a decent amount of skill)
(Baba Yaga would feel that there is still one curse hanging onto her, but she doesn't know what will trigger it or what it does.)
Dvalinn: (he would speak directly to Zarlak's mind) Release Líf from your chain, or I, of the four stags of Yggdrasil, will invoke the World Tree's wrath upon you.
The Empress of Lost Things: (She stands up on shaky feet, then stares Zarlak right in the eyes. She opens a small Abyss hole right above his head, if he were to look up he would see the Missing Planet falling down in an attempt to crush him in a centralized location.)
Seer: (she picks up the fallen Red Ribbon, moving to a more secured location. She attemps to voice her desperation to the person through the butterfly.)
Major Fraser: Enough playing around invisible one! (he throws the alchemical potion he had mixed earlier at Hollow's feet. It creates a chunk of ice that holds Hollow in place)
Murasame : You swing your sword Well, Enchantress. But you dont have a proper techniques
(He fall back and bend down a bit. He goes into special fighting stance)
Baba Yaga (Frog) jump toward the Zarlak : Zarlak , It be Baba.... lift by curse.
Zarlak : Do i look like i have an extra hand ??!!
Hollow is suprise by the frozen potion. Hollow : That does it, We should end this (He begin engulf himself in an spectre aura, he then phase through the frozen binding like a ghost)
His aura allow him to be able to phase through solid object but he can briefly see by naked eye.
Hollow sink into the floor. He lurking in floor and wall preparing to strike.
The Wolves Chase after Seer. Zarlak see the planet falling down : That weird Woman.
His scarf become aggresive and start cutting down the tree vine. The Elder Tree enhanced with Yggdrasil Tree become even stronger and extend its root more toward them.
Baba Yaga : I though you say you got this by yourself.
Zarlak : Who know they got so many helping hand. (He Shout) HAVE YOU PRETEND ENOUGH LYING ON THE GROUND??
Pigman get out from the debris, He took out a human arm and eat it. He become enrage he charges at Empress of lost thing again. Jane block his way and shoot 3 holy bullet toward him. The bullet is not working due to his Berserk Mode.
Baba Yaga : Faster, Release me
Zarlak try to get rid of the Vine but holding on to the chain.
Samaritana: ...(she backs up, on guard) I feel it would be foolish for me to keep attempting to fight you in your own expertise.
Major Fraser: Coward! (he starts mixing more alchemical potions)
Seer: (she spills some cold water on Red Ribbon's face in attempt to wake her up.) Come on, we definitely need you now!
(Red Ribbon wakes up, immediately noticing Hollow lurking in the walls and floor)
Red Ribbon: (she sits up) No, that is bad! (she extends her control to the house itself in order to attack Hollow at the smallest level by imbalancing his hiding places)
(The Empress of Lost Things leans back, slipping through another Abyss hole to avoid Pigman, leaving this existence temporarily. Looking upward, Zarlak would see the Empress of Lost Things before she jumps down from the same hole the lost planet is coming from)
Empress of Lost Things: (her voice croaks as she speaks) Hello. (It seems she'd grabbed Bear's Lost Tail while in the Abyss and gags Zarlak with the ancient object to make him shut up. She then walks away so as to not be in the way of the lost planet)
Seer's Whisper: Please. There's only so much we can do to defend ourselves, and another of them has even come as I speak.
Samaritana: (Her face darkens on bitter memories as she hears the flute music. Then, her eyes narrow on Author as she raises her blade. With that motion all other serpent blades rise from the ground and gather around her. She enchants them again, creating self-propelled enchanted blades to go attack Author's ghosts and zombies) What about you, Author! Have you broken any oaths?
Red Ribbon: (As the house shakes and is being damaged by the chaotic battle and the now growing tree, she starts shaking in pain) W-w-w-w-w-w-wh-a-a-a-at? (she attempts to slow down Pigman by wrapping his legs with floorboards and carpet)
Seer: (she cannot see the animals in front of her, but upon hearing them she jumps backwards with Red Ribbon in her hands) Oh!? I hope this works well...
Líf: Wait!!! (she attempts to distract the animals)
(Seeing his mistress' distress, Dvalinn moves to defend Seer from Billy's animals)
Empress of Lost Things: (She approaches Zarlak again and snarls out a cracked sentence) Do you want to be lost? (a hole to the Abyss opens up directly below both of them and she starts trying to pull him in. All other Abyss holes in the house close)
Samaritana: (she blocks, however her sword breaks, returning to its snake form, now dead. She calls over an extra from the serpent swords to defend herself again.) Correct, and by his expression its clear that he is guilty. (she raises her other hand in a curled claw-like sign) Let Orcus, Vanquisher of Oathbreakers deal with him!
(Author would find himself phasing to another plane. In moments he stands in an underworld in front of a withered tree that reminds him somehow of Famine. He is in Orcus, and he's not alone...)
Red Ribbon: (she breathes quickly as parts of her start burning alongside the house) N-no! It hurts.
Seer: No...nononono! We need rain! (She runs over to the sink and places Red Ribbon inside. she turns it on and water starts rushing over the household goddess) Stay with me. (she continues looking and notices Cath moving) Oh no you don't... (she sends a message to the person through the butterfly still with him, giving him a warning of the approaching enemy)
Empress of Lost Things: (She glares at Zarlak. Reaching into an Abyss hole she pulls out something) If you stop attacking, I will give you this. I'm sure it would be very valuable to you...(she opens her palm, in it is Odin's Right Eye, the one he had traded away for wisdom)
(Author finds himself facing a who towers over him, twice as tall as he is. The being is grim and grey. His robe is made of fire that does not move, dead, and his crown has feathers of strixes.)
Orcus: Haddock, False Lovecraft, False Steven King, False R.L. Stine, False Shakespeare, HHH. You stand before me. Long have you evaded true judgement for the trusts you have broken. Welcome, I am Orcus, Vanquisher of Oathbreakers, and you (he points at him) have a long-broken oath. Do you have anything to say in my domain?
Samaritana: (she continues her defensive stance, trying to minimize personal damage while looking for an opening of some sort)
Empress of Lost Things: With these warring beings as our witness, you will cease your attack in exchange for this lost artifact of great power.
Major Fraser: (he grits his teeth and uncorks another alchemical potion and tosses it at Hollow's currently spectral form) Taste ghostfire, invisible one!
Seer: (Desperate she sends a butterfly to Father Garu. It will ask for a cloud of rain to save this house and Red Ribbon)
Author : Let Me Go..... I will write about you in a story .... let everyone know you
Murasame continue his attack. Every attack he aim so deadly to throat, heart, eye and torso.
Zarlak : Very Well..... (With this , i can even promote to an Elder)
The ghost fire spread which spread the house but it did not damage the house, it only effective to the spirit . No matter where Hollow hide, he get burn.
Zarlak : Give me the Eye and i release the spell (He drop the chain he holding on but lif still bind by chain)
Father Garu who in cloud factory where butterfly trying to run to. For Some reason all getting kill upon reaching out for certain range. The message did not deliver. However Magical Rain fall down on the House. Another Entity nearby too pity of the situation and make rain fall.
Blast mist reach the mountain range. Cath spread his mist surround the entire hill. He didnt find the source of the flute but he found another entity which cause the rain to fall.
Nabulangi pass by the mountain range saw the Fire happen at the house. She make rain fall to put down the fire.
The Flute Music stop playing. The Mysterious person told Seer : I need to go...This is all i can help you.. Something unpleasant coming......
Orcus: ...(He places one hand firmly on one of Author's shoulders and leans down to stare him in the eyes. Within his gaze Author can see the souls of those who had been judged before him.) They will all eventually come to me. Just as you have today, Author. Your living actions are...inescapable.
Seer: (shocked) Who in the world!?
Empress of Lost Things: (With a shocked expression she opens and closes another Abyss hole, securing both Zarlak's arm and Odin's Right Eye into the Abyss. They are lost to Zarlak now.)
(With a sigh of disappointment Orcus steps through the world ending blast, as an underworld is already the end of many's worlds. He passes easily through Author's desperate attempt. He seizes Author's book and uses the quill, and using deceased authors' souls as fuel to power it as he begins to write)
Orcus: "As a consequence of this choice to escape he would be deposited from Orcus to stand before they who he had once betrayed. Helpless. Powerless. Without his book and stories to help him. el fin" Goodbye Author.
(Orcus finishes the writing and closes the book with a finality)
Major Fraser: (recognizing the individual components of Yomi as people he has known in his travels) Impossible! What have you done...
(he steps forward)
Major Fraser: You will not harm them! (he brandishes his knife and alchemical potions)
Seer: ...(She waits. She can also see Gabriel and the unnamed girl approaching through the shadows, but can do nothing to prevent them from arriving)
Samaritana: (using the opportunity she retreats to a safe distance) Who is it? Who has gone to my house?
Author : No No, (He took out a page with a dragon drawing)
He summon a dragon and ride and trying to run... Unseen force loop him at the same place.
Hollow : I am with you, Elder.
Zarlak give him a sight indicate hollow to say him
Hollow give him a sight in return saying fine.
Hollow use poltergiest to sink pigman body and Zarlak body into the ground secretly and slowly.
Yomi smile : Okay, i decide i take all of you at once.
Jane remember he is one of the less active elder that in the list. Jane shout with all her might : All Run Now !!!!
He suddenly appear in between all of them. He kick Major Fraser, Empress, Jane, Elder Tree and Dvalinn into five different direction. Major Fraser to south, Empres to the east, Jane to the West, Elder Tree to the North West and Dvalinn to the North East.
What strange is They all in different distance but he kick five of them at the exact same time and send them flying.
Yomi : You must be the one sending all the butterfly outside. (He took out the broken remaining from his robe and drop it on ground)
Yomi see Seer is harmless and turn to lif and say : You must be the target for this time
Orcus: (he calmly walks over to the looping Author) It may not be the right time, Author, but its happening, and you just prevented yourself from my respite. (he grips the dragon's tail and separates the two. Picking up Author he walks towards Author's portal and holds him above it) Are you ready?
Red Ribbon: (She starts to awaken once more with the house extinguished. This would cause interference with Hollow's escape plan)
Seer: (she closes her eyes and makes a wish in vain)
Líf: P-please, no...
(Gabriel arrives through the fireplace with the unnamed girl)
This scream echo through the hell but his destiny is doom.
Hollow look at Red Ribbon : You again
Yomi turn to Major Fraser : I never thought i run into a old acquantaines here. I guess your previous experiement on the elixir is a success.
Red Ribbon can clearly differentiate the man standing among her house has no evil aura. Yriscal who has foul evil energy but yomi on the other hand even purely than an angel.
Yomi walk slowly toward Lif but he turn to look at the direction of new company.
Jane laying on the ground shoot her bullet upward as a calling signal with all her might and he took off her masking batch and turn into a young Man : I am the Major of RIP Department. The Army is coming shortly. You have no where to run.
Yomi smile and show his beautiful expression : Heaven Army? I wonder they will be any help at all. (He continue walking confidently)
Murasame :...... An Chaos Elder (His body emit dark energy)
Murasame : Curse Mode (He change into a Yasha form and the sword become bigger) I need to end this now.
Orcus: Have a happy reunion, H. (he lets go, dropping Author to face his fate)
Major Fraser: (he laughs dryly as he gets up from his position) To think, I'd get my congratulations here...Was that perhaps from the memories of Faust in that mind of yours? (he gets up)
(Empress of Lost Things, fearful, keeps her distance)
Dvalinn: (the deer gets up and starts charging back to defend Líf)
Gabriel: WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE!? (he let's the unnamed girl lay on the floor, currently unconscious)
Samaritana: (recognizing she can not hope to block on sword skill alone she changes her plan and enchantments) I draw on the memories of shields long past, of Aegis, of Ancile, of Pridwen. (her swords gather, enchanted into an enormous shield, the visage of many serpents that were enchanted to create it engraved upon it)
Líf: (she chokes on tears upon seeing the frozen Dvalinn)
Gabriel: (He raises gutteral growls as he howls. He can sense that Yomi is pure, and because of that Gabriel can do nothing to him.)
Unnamed Girl: (she stirs, but doesn't yet wake up)
Seer: ...what could possibly help us...(she thinks as her butterflies continue fluttering in and about the world) A reaper, as there are many souls that should be dead but live on in fused eternity? Is there any reaper nearby? ...But that might not be good considering Líf is here...but again there's no choice. (she sends butterflies to attempt to contact reapers
(At this moment Yriscal has confronted the Iron Maiden at the Room of Questioning out in orbit, entering her domain. While it is certain he will obtain another name to sacrifice, it us currently unknown if he will be able to make it back to Earth in time to attain the final four names at the perfect opportunity, currently here at the house together.)
Samaritana: Brethren, please! By the blood of my people, let me survive this blow unscathed! (her shield is fully deployed, the winding engravings forming an eternally twining and long symbol of ouroboros)
Samaritana: (she rests on her knees, exhausted) I see. What magnificent swordsmanship.
Major Fraser: (conflicted, he follows her directions, running and picking up Líf) Hound! Take Seer with you and get away as well! It would be folly for us to leave her of all people at their mercy, perhaps even more so than the m obtaining the Fountain of Youth!
(Saint Germain begins sprinting away with Líf in his arms.)
Gabriel: (he growls) I'd do that without being asked! (he howls, and opens a shadow wide, allowing multiple people to go through. Gabriel helps Seer get the unnamed girl up to her shoulders. He then barks out to the Empress of Lost Things) You as well! Come here so we do not lose you again!
(Gabriel, Seer, and the unnamed girl wait for her beside the shadow)
(The unnamed girl wakes up, eyes wide as she sees the situation.)
Unnamed Girl: There's so many people! (she looks at Gabriel) So many! (she sees Seer) Sister! (she jumps and hugs her, knocking them both down) Where am I? How old am I?
Gabriel: (he growls firmly) No time! (he calls again to the Empress of Lost Things) Hurry!
(The Empress of Lost Things attempts to make her way over to Gabriel and the rest)
Seer: (Given a short break she looks into what's approaching, as well as what exactly is going on with those she'd tried to contact but couldn't.)
Major Fraser: (he continues sprinting without looking back. From his pocket he pulls out an old cell phone and thumbs in a number before calling Rea.) Come on, pick up. I need to know what's going on outside of this bubble of a location. There's clearly more going on.
(Up above in the Questioning Room, Yriscal has managed a difficult feat. He has tricked the Iron Maiden. Previously, he had answered four questions while secretly grasping for her name. This exchange soon followed those four.
Yriscal: "If I answer this next question honestly, I may leave, correct? It can be anything. I see there's a question you've been searching for a long time, and I know I can tell you."
The Iron Maiden: "That is fair, if you are truthful this time."
Yriscal: "Good! Go ahead then, I...have time."
The Iron Maiden: "Do you...know who I am?"
Yriscal: (laughing) "Do I know who you are? Of course! You are my daughter, named for your aunt, Biancabella. You, my dear, are Abella Gaudin."
He grasps her name with his hand, a sphere containing an iron tear. He then drops it into Lord Erebus and follows swiftly after, her name sacrificed for the archangel's corpse. He leaves a furious and fuming Iron Maiden who reaches to grasp his wrist in vain. He has already left the Questioning Room, and he has gotten exactly what he wanted for, and a bonus of wreaking havoc on his estranged daughter He will soon know where he's going next..)
Yomi : It futile to contact anyone. There a barrier blocking all form of contact magic. Your butterfly or your signal gun is all not pointless.
There actually a giant dome barrier to block any communication outside but entry and exit is allow. Even the fire signal from earlier didnt reach outside. Every of its move is perfectly plan and executed.
Yomi levitate in sky and circle the entire ground and house in a circle with his sword. The Sword Swing form a circle on the ground.
Yomi : I will Kill anyone who Step outside of this ring,
Samaritana: (she starts walking toward the house, noticing the barrier from the outside with a quizzical look) What in the world?
Gabriel: (he looks at his shadow portal concerned. Not wanting to risk it, he closes it.)
Empress of Lost Things: (she sits next to Gabriel and her two sisters) Should I...take us to the Abyss?
Gabriel: (he shakes his head) He's too fast, no use risking it.
Major Fraser: (He stops running and swears. While he knows he'd be okay, Líf wouldn't be able to be secured.)
(Back on Earth, standing atop of the Reverse Mountain, Yriscal Gaudin looks toward the direction of the house)
Yriscal: I'm coming home! (The Reverse Mountain changes its location for the second time that day. In fact it returns to its first place, just 45 kilometers north of the town where his house lay. He starts a brisk march from the top, down, and toward town and the house. He is only followed by his many rats, as the rest of his army is either scattered or MIA. Music from his pipe emanates across the landscape, its sour feeling spreading with its sound.)
(Yriscal and his haunting melody reach town, quickly approaching the house)
Major Fraser: (his eyes widen at Ramano's appearance, as well as the news he brought) No, nonono. If I know how this world functions, this can only mean something worse is going to happen. (he starts running back toward the house)
Seer: (she has seen her father) No! NO!
Unnamed Girl: Sister? (she grabs both sisters near her into a hug) Its going to be fine!
Seer: I...I don't think so.
Samaritana: (her brow narrows in disgust) That song...(she walks faster, approaching the house)
Empress of Lost Things: (with one last taunt she shows a wink of an Abyss portal in front of Zarlak. Inside he can glimpse his now-missing arm, as well as Odin's Right eye. The portal disappears just as quickly as it appeared.)
(before Gabriel can open a new portal he is suddenly pinned flat to the wall in his shadow.)
Major Fraser: What?!
Yriscal: (he has arrived, leaning against the door) Noone leaves until I got what I've come for. (he analyzes the last four of his children he requires) Yes...not quiet yet.
(Yriscal jolts back a few steps at first, but a quizical expression crosses his face. He tilts his head turning to listen to Ptolemy)
Yriscal: Oh? Do I recognize a voice under all that? Why, yes...I believe I do. I never would have guessed, since I've only heard your name 'Ptolemy'...but that inflection of your tongue; the way you open your vowels is unmistakable. Tell me, was your first job a shepherd boy? I believe my troupe took a tour in your area one year. (he's clearly taunting Ptolemy now. At the same time, his eyes flicker between each of his children, puzzling out their forgotten names.)
Yriscal: (he cartwheels to the side to avoid the attack then starts strafing across the floorboards to keep Ptolemy from easily targetting him) Oh, geeze! I guess you got some power since then, huh? (as he passes Major Fraser and Líf) Hello, stranger! Hello, Aethal! (he pulls her name out of the air, inside a young sapling grows forever youthful. The sphere is immediately dropped to Lord Erebus in his shadow) Alright! Three more, and it'll all be at once...(he looks over toward the unnamed girl, Empress of Lost Things, and Seer)
Red Ribbon: (she finally pulls herself out of the sink, but upon seeing Yriscal remains silent in fear. Despite being the household goddess, she is unable to harm Yriscal, as he is still considered the master of the house)
Yriscal: (he points at the Empress of Lost Things) Gisell! (in his hand appears an orb that contains lost socks, keys, and coins; he then points at the unnamed girl) Ferre! (next to that orb appears another, this one containing a flaming shadow. He drops them both into Lord Erebus' shadow)
Seer: No! Don't give him any chances!
Yriscal: (he points at Seer and starts drawing her name out of the air) Shaina! (inside the orb is a transluscent, green butterfly)
Father Caleb took out his secret weapon , A document.
Father Caleb : By the Name of Father, Representative of the church in this town. I hereby declare you are hereby exile from this town due to unholy ritual perform and abuse against your family. The House will be taken back as a property of the church.
Father Caleb holding the document with the approval of the archbishop. The Document just a normal Document nope magical power or what so ever.
Líf: (she picks up the violin orb, looking at it with a grim expression)
Samaritana: (she reaches to pick the iron tear orb up)
(Empress of Lost Things, Seer, and the unnamed girl are blocked by two of the archangel's wings and cannot reach)
Saint Germain: (he reaches over, barely picking up the burning shadow orb)
(Suddenly, everyone paying attention would notice the archangel's corpse twitch. Its eyes begin to open. The corpse begins floating in midair, and the remaining orb, the eternal bloom, is unrecovereable.One silver bowl appears orbiting the corpse. Yriscal's recitation is working.)
(The rest of the orbs are being pulled in, as though the corpse holds a strong gravitational force to the orbs specifically)
Saint Germain: I will not...let this...happen. (he shouts as he's pulled even closer to the corpse and the, now four, silver bowls)
Yriscal: (he whistles, then starts throwing rocks at Saint Germain, Caleb, and Samaritana to try and make them let go) It's going to happen! If you don't let go soon, you'll lose your hands! Because it has already taken more than half the names as sacrifice, its will pull at the others until the ritual is complete. You cannot stop me! (he laughs)
(The angelic being aligns itself, standing up with its wing folded, the now seven silver bowls orbiting its body. It examines itself, as well as the seven tattoos that have now appeared on its arm. It then at everyone in the house, as well as Yriscal through the window. He points at each of them in turn.) Comte de Saint Germain. Nick Walker. Pyre. Seer. Líf. Empress of Lost Things. Red Ribbon. Gabriel. Father Caleb Vedorf. Samaritana Guadin. Yriscal Gaudin. (he points a well at the frozen deer) Dvalinn.
???: (for a few moments it seems as though this has worked, however one of the tattoos fades out) Second Seal: War (in their hands is now a sword. The blade is a wicked thing, and its presence radiates the aura of War herself. The being approaches them, using the sword named War to cut their bullets) Greetings.
Circe : Ptolemy must have call us for good reason.
Jia Zi ya : Your request all of our presence that must mean .....
Ptolemy spoke in a enhance deep tone. : I would like to resquest the Use for Disttance Magic
Paracelsus :......... The Magic didnt use for ages
Abdullah : What good reason for such sudden request
Mimir who also present in the meeting : Please hear me. I have send Ptolemy on a request mission. Apparently we found out that the Evil Piper has ressurect a new evil present. We must stop them at once.
Solomon : We are magic council, we are not guardian. We do not interfere. As long as they did not attack us.
Mimir : I afraid not..... The being seem to be an Apocalyse Level. Sooner or later, we will be involved.
Ptolemy : Most importantly, there are one particular woman among them call Empress of Lost thing. We can use her to look for Merlin and Witch of Endor. They be missing for ages.
Everyone start discussing......
Circe : We must save that lady
Solomon : Involving in this matter will only result of us being target sooner
Abdullah : Mimir, What did you see in the future?
Mimir : All i know this young lady can bring us a Lot of lost magical Item which we will gain benefit from.
Jia Zi Ya : I can break my curse with that" Magical Object"
Paracelsus : The Lose Philosopher Stone
Ptolemy : Let Vote without the presence of 1st and 6th Seat.
Saint Germain: ...I mean, its not like I really needed it after I was done with it. So I left it with the other alchemist who isn't you, Paracelsus. Nicolas Flamel. Yes, I do believe I left it with the Frenchman.
Líf: (she looks hopeful at Circe and then Dvalinn)
Yriscal: I was going to do that if the thing wasn't trying to kill me!
Revelations: First Seal: Conquest. Pestilence. (a crown named Conquest appears on its head and a bow named Pestilence in its arms, it aims its weapon as it approaches)
Saint Germain: Well, isn't there an obvious solution? (he's actively trying not to look Paracelsus in the eyes as he speaks) You must find Nicolas Flamel to find where the Philosopher's Stone has gone.
Líf: (she practically leaps atop Dvalinn, hugging his neck)
Dvalinn: (he shakes himself, causing remaining flecks of ice to scatter about the room) Thank you...
Seer: (she's glancing at the situation back in the town) I see, Yomi has confronted Revelations.
Revelations: (he let's loose the arrow from Pestilence, striking the sword with disease and turning it to fragile rust) By whose authority do you speak?
Jia Zi Ya : Father, i believe you from Vatican
Father Caleb : Yes. Thank you for saving us. We need to be departure to inform vatican about this. The Archbishop might have something on this angel.
Solomon : Not so fast, Which one of you has the ability of lost thing?
Yomi : You look like a worthy opponent (He using gather the energy surrounding. All Wind draw toward him)
Excuse me . A Female with lustful clothing appear out of no where
Revelations: (he pauses, information whirling around inside his head as the First Seal closes again) Why yes, I believe that I must agree to this.
Saint Germain: Well I don't know about anything on the scale of artificial suns but...and this should never leave this room for obvious reasons...I do believe he can make dragons. Not weak ones either, but full-blooded, long-lived dragons.
Saint Germain: That isn't a problem, Paracelsus, but I'll have you know that there's nothing that the Stone can offer me anymore, I have no need to take it myself.
Empress of Lost Things: Um...alright? (she opens a hole above the center of the room, allowing Bear's Lost Tail, several socks and coins, as well as the Cintamani Stone to fall out of the Abyss.) Is this what you were asking?
Empress of Lost Things: (she raises an eyebrow) Is that lost? (she tries, sorting through the lost artifacts in the Abyss. She also opens a hole, reclaiming Bear's Lost Tail and the Cintamani Stone for the Abyss again.)
Empress of Lost Things: Then that...shouldn't be a problem. (She opens a hole. As she thinks a few other trinkets fly out, as though wanting to be found. Two coins, one depicting an owl and the other depicting a magpie, as well as Zarlak's arm. Odin's Right Eye comes out, but the Empress of Lost Things quickly catches it)
Solomon : With your level of skill, your life will be in danger, We will only train you to master your skill. It will greatly benefit our world and till you able to defend yourself. We also dont want your power to fall into the wrong hand. You are free to leave anytime then.
Caleb : I see. I will be going back to vatican to find out more about that angel.
Caleb turn to Samaritana. Caleb : It be a while, I used to work in the church near your house. I dont know if you still remember me. You didnt age at all. We couldnt probably greet other just now
Solomon look at the Odin Eye : Dont worry, we have no use of that. We Wizard take prime in our own acheivement. It disgrace for wizard like us to use object to boost our own power. I will send you to your chamber for rest.
Father Caleb : ahahaha, All "his" victim is alive in some way. I never would have though you the mistress of Karma. But i wont be living long anyway. My karma will caught up to me sooner or later.
Father Caleb : Will you be bringing along Pyre? I dont think she has anywhere she could go.
Empress of Lost Things: Right...(she nods as she gathers the Abyss's scattered things, as well as throwing the eye back in)
Samaritana: (she looks at the girl with the burned black hair and irises) I don't know. She's at a far different level in aspect to most everyone here and seems to be rather unstable. What was it Gabriel spoke of, 'spontaneous human combustion' cases? Besides...I'm still looking for that Crooked Man, and that's not a hunt to bring a child on.
Gabriel: (he trots over) It is, but it also has many rules that you would have to acknowledge and avoid breaking, child.
Pyre: (her eyes widen) Gabriel can speak!
Gabriel: ...(as Pyre goes to pet him, he looks at Father Caleb with tired look) She's...odd. The fearling may have been purified, but its misuse of her curse left her with little personal learning and development. The Vatican might be a good place to deal with her, a girl who lost her time to learn herself and has a power far stronger than she can comprehend.
Father Caleb : Very Well, Then i shall bring her back
Soon, Everyone bid farewell went on their own way.
