>Time: 5:00 PM

>Archeon's Genetics division is busy as always - with various laboratory technicians continuing their research experiments. Overseeing the entire endeavor, is Dr. Dana Desmond - maintaining her position as chief geneticist and molecular biologist at the company.

"Anna, I'm going to need that enyzme production chemical in a few days. Josh, make sure the codon readers are up and running for next week. I'm not going to allow a poor demonstration for Archeon - unlike what happened with DataDrive."

>As she continues barking orders with a concerned, but stern demeanor - she then hears a buzzing sound from inside of her coat. Blinking, she then answers her phone, as the tone in her voice changes immediately.

"Oh, sweetie! How are you?"

>Stopping for a moment, Dana then waits for the person to respond before saying:

"Well it's good to hear that. It's your day off for the week, so I hope you'll spend at least some of that time studying for your final exam!"

>Nodding, Aiden then looks at Damian as he states:

"Still, that's the point of my story. Nobody knows what love is, until they stop asking what it is. And nobody stops asking, until they experience it for themselves. Genuinely. Truly."

>Thinking about Stella in his mind once more, Aiden then says:

"I've never felt happy in my life until I kissed her. Not really. More content, than fulfilled."

>Giving a partial nod and sideways head shake, Damian then states:

"Well, I'm glad to hear that, Aiden. I just wish I wasn't so wild with my taste in women."

>Aiden then closes his eyes and starts laughing loudly. Damian is concerned until Aiden says:

"I'll race you back to the Archeon Complex. See if you can get some more practice with an armored aerial vehicle."

>As Arachnid begins flipping switches, pressing buttons and placing his hands on the synaptic controls that connect to the main engines, he then says:

"You're on. Bet you I can go around the Financial Sector's bridge in record time."

>Mosaic crosses his arms and cranes his head to the side, slowly.

"Oh? You think you're faster than I was when I first made that thing? Hah, alright then. Funny how you're more confident about flying an aerial tank than a basic car."

>Aiden rubs his eyelids as he walks into the kitchen - seeing a bunch of food sitting on the table. Curious, he then picks up a plate and begins placing some food from the bowls onto it. He then grabs a spoon and starts eating as he walks around.

>Finding Stella in the living room reading a book, she doesn't even move a muscle as she says:

"Long day? I'm sure watching over your protégé took a lot out of you."

>Stella says, finally turning around with a smirk on her face.

>Aiden sighs as he moves to go sit down on the couch beside her. Now eating from his place, without spilling a bit of food, he then says:

"I just wanted to see how he'd do. He's supposed to take over for me anyways. Eventually that is."

"So what exactly convinced you to decide on this shift? This shift in your priorities?"

>Aiden takes one more look at his hair, using his extra-sensory perception. Recognizing the exact same hair alterations that he saw in Magister - he then says:

"….Wow. I really do look like an Oreo. You weren't kidding."

>Still closing her eyes, Stella then says:

"As I said, Oreo. I knew you were something else."

>Aiden then leans down and gives Stella a deep kiss on the lips.

>After a few seconds of the deep kiss, he then pulls himself back from Stella as he says:

"There's something I want to say to you - but I'll save it for tomorrow."

>Time: 12:39 PM

>People lazily wait in the queue at a trendy coffee shop, all of them dealing with their own business as they wait to get their daily lunch, their time far too precious to be worried about the lives of others.

>One such person, a young man engrossed in his phone, makes his was into the shop, casually walking forward while not looking ahead, focussed entirely on the stream of messages going in front of him in a group chat.

>After a few steps in, the man stops abruptly as he hits the person in front of him in the queue.

"Oh. . . sorry about that. . ."

>The man takes a step back, looking up at the person who he bumped into, a woman who easily stands at 7 foot tall, her black hair interrupted by unnatural-looking streaks of white hair. Not saying anything, the woman turns slightly to look at the man, staring at him with two empty, glazed over eyes.

"You ok. . ?"

>Natalia looks over her shoulder briefly, giving Orion a quizical look, before turning her attention back to the girl.

"Well, May, do you want to say hello to Orion? Do you remember the way to do that politely."

>The girl looks up at Orion, scared for a moment, but soon finds confidence when Natalia gives her a smile to reassure her, and steps up to him, offering her hand out.

"Hello Or. . . Orin, my name is May."

"Hi May."

"Do you… like living here?"

"Sometimes I get cold but Miss Moore makes sure we all get better when we get sick, even naughty kids like Johnny!"

>Natalia watches Orion's reaction.

"We had. . . an incident the other week, there was a bout of sickness that went through the orphanage. . ."

>Natalia stops for a second, kneeling down to the girl's level again.

"May, why don't you get the other kids so they can say hello to Mr Orion too?"

>The girl nods and runs off, leaving Natalia and Orion alone for a moment.

"You sound young, Orion, both of you - you're allowed to make mistakes."

>Natalia rubs her neck slightly.

". . .although most mistakes are usually a bit less painful. . ."

"But you don't need to worry, I'm used to people threatening me, you live in the industrial district long enough and you see it all - Crimson Tide thugs, Meta-Human Alliance Agitators, Brigadier muscle. . ."

"I even saw a gang member dressed up like they were going to a ball, once."

>Natalia chuckles as she remembers the comical sight.

{"Keep focusing, Aiden. It's coalescing. Don't break concentration."}

>A seemingly invisible force of energy and matter continues to surge around Aiden - slowly picking up speed as it continues to build up power, gradually. The grass around him begins slowly bending at artificial angles, as he remains cross legged on the grass of his backyard.


>After a few more moments, he then thinks to himself:

{"Good. I'm getting better at controlling my mind. Thoughts lead to emotions, which lead to actions."}

"…..Not bad. I'm impressed - and incredibly so."

"…..Told you. Don't underestimate me….."

>Nodding, Mosaic then slowly rises to his feet, stating:

"Yeah. I won't. You've taught me a lot. Improved mana control and redistribution."

>As Andromeda rises to her feet, Mosaic continues speaking:

"Passive wards and charms. Offensive hexes and jinxes. Spell casting. Spell fusion."

>Then after a few more seconds, Doctor and Magister - now in their Sorcerers Supreme outfits, walk towards them. As he gives them a thumbs up, Doctor then says:

"Great job, you two. You've demonstrated far better magic control, improvisation skills, mana conservation and passive defense creation."

>Magister nods, with his hands underneath his cloak in his signature form of presentation. As he looks at Mosaic and Andromeda, he then states:

"As Doctor stated, you've both showcased an impressive degree of magical dexterity - and not just physically. Your mental stamina has improved considerably - in addition to your spiritual fortitude. I'd say you've both made drastic progress - and in such a small window of time as well. Astonishing."

>Mosaic nods at the Sorcerers Supreme, as Andromeda does as well.

"Thanks, both of you. That means a lot coming from you and….well….me."

"You are one of her students - and a remarkably fast learner at that."

>Looking over Andromeda closely, he then exclaims:

"I can confirm your Thaumaturgic origin. Whatever your parents did, they infused you with a substantial amount of magical power from your birth - which likely caused a rapid chain of mutations within your body."

"I'm reminded of the Major Arcana. Before me, what I see are The Magician. Headstrong and Steadfast - but also narcissistic and self-indulgent when not properly managed."

>Magister says, looking at Mosaic as he flicks a magic card at his direction.

"….As well as the High Priestess. Intuitive and divine in her judgments - while also secretive and manipulative without guidance."

>Magister says, looking at Andromeda as he flicks a magic card in her direction..

>As both Mosaic and Andromeda look at each other for a moment, they then both look down at the cards in their hands - somewhat embarrassed.

"Nonetheless - you two have come into near flawless synchronicity with each other. Maintain that strong emotional bond, and you will both reach new heights of clarity and magical capability. It is your bond and love for each other that strengthens you both. Remember that."

>As he moves to part his bangs out of his hair - he then feels a pair of hands slowly do that for him. Recognizing the person by their sensitivity of touch, he then says out loud:

"I'm hopeless, aren't I?"

>Scowling lightly, Stella then neatly parts Aiden's hair - adjusting it with a fine tooth comb. As she carefully moves over his hair with the comb, she speaks:

"If you were hopeless, I wouldn't be your fiancé."

"Failed again, Placebo?"

"Come in."

"….And here's your schedule for the next week!"

"You're very busy, Thaumaturge!"

>In front of this sight, a young girl with black hair trembles, a ritualistic dagger in her hands, as she trembles, she breathes heavily, the walls of the undercroft moving in and out as she does.

>Taking her finger, Ceri puts it in her mouth for a second, the schlera of her eyes turning black. Then, she removes it from her mouth, closing her hand enough to stop the flow, but not before a drop falls on a blade of grass below, causing it to wither.

"There are only two people left with the blood of Ambrosias running through them, me. . ."

"Ha, I'll be lucky to make it to twenty before I have to be put down. With how fast it progresses with me."

"But that likely still won't be for a little while. Still, I assure you. You'll make it past twenty."

>She waits for Ceri to step in the portal as well, and then closes it.

"Oh and one more thing. You should be able to come and go to the Axiom as you please now. Just reach into your pouch and you'll find what you need for it."

"There's a difference between what's written in a book, and what you can actually see, Stephanie. . ."

"Thank you for the invitation, though, I'll definitely make a lot of use of your library. . ."

"This 'Great Vampire' - there may be a reference to it somewhere in the texts. Depends on how well of chronicler Thoth and the rest were. If there's anything that can help us figure out a solution, like with a replacement? It'll be there."

>Looking back up at Orion and Hiroki, Magister then states:

"But given how they seemingly just removed themselves from existence - I'm wondering if Time doesn't have a way to reorient itself towards stability. Some sort of backup mechanism so to speak. If it does? Then we should be fine. But if not? Then…."

>Sighing once more, now clearly lost in thought as his mind races for an efficient solution, Magister concludes with:

"We're going to figure out something to fix this. We always do."

"-maybe. It's not a perfect solution by any means, but it can possibly work for now. Until you can come up with a more permanent solution, or it fixes itself."

"I can't imagine that the timeline was entirely decided by this creature and this so-called 'Great Vampire', so there's likely something out there that will work towards solving this."

"…..I can't assume this was the first time that a trans-temporal incident occurred. Nor can I assume that time had broken irrevocably as a result of that incident. Mainly because if it did, we wouldn't be here by now."

>Looking back at Hiroki and Orion, Magister then states:

"We can't ask you to do all of that, frankly because that'd be very bad manners for us. There is a more workable solution that shouldn't require anyone's sacrifice of personal time. We just have to find it."

>Not seeing anyone, the man takes a deep breath then carries on running again, heading into the hills.

>After a few more minutes of running into the hills, the man comes across a small, abandoned shack, and breathes a sigh of relief.

>Slowing his pace down, the man stumbles towards the shack, opening the door and stepping inside, only to be met by a person sitting down on a wooden chair in the shack, their feet resting comfortably on a rickety old table, a battered old cowboy hat covering their face.

"Howdy there pardner, how can I help ya today?"

>The man looks confused for a second, trying to work out what is happening, then comes to a realisation as he recognises the voice.

Projections for growth among various subsidiaries, likely acquisition targets and litigation material are all laid out before him - as he finishes his call.

"…Thank you again Mr. Matthews. We'll consider your arrangement for a joint venture with that new start up company. Hopefully they'll be a good competitor to DataDrive. Yes, thank you again. I'll talk to you soon."

>Hanging up the phone, Isaac writes a final series of numbers and statements on the paper before him - as he then feels a presence appearing. Immediately recognizing the presence, he then thinks to himself:

{"Hmm. I wonder what he's here to ask me about?"}

>As both sets of golems are defeated through either ice shattering or electricity disintegration, Mosaic takes a look around at his handiwork. Assuming a thinking position, he then says to himself:

"…..I could've improved my casting time - but this will suffice."

>After the golems have been defeated, Mosaic then watches as the world around him shifts - with the archipelago and the golems disappearing into non-existence.

"It depends. Some of the items are simply that - items created by various magicians and beings at different times in human history. The Sanctum of a universe generally keeps a record of every magical item that has ever been constructed. They're mostly for display purposes."

>Walking with Doctor still, Mosaic then looks at the bookcases that have altered their sizes as well, then asking:

"I'm assuming that the written literature is the same then? All of the archives are contextual in nature."

>As they reach the living room of the Axiom, Doctor then turns to Mosaic and says:

"You did a good job facing your demons today, Aiden. Not many people can stare their insecurities in the face - and refuse to blink first. You did just that."

>Mosaic scratches the back of his neck behind his suit's jacket collar. Sounding humbled, he then says:

"…..It was nothing, really. I needed that anyways - and now I have an idea of what kind of person I'm going to be in the future. I don't know why but….seeing that felt humbling to me. Almost necessary, like divi-"

"Like divine intervention?"

>Doctor says, inquisitively.

>Mosaic nods slowly as he replies:

>Snapping his fingers, Doctor then watches as a series of tomes quickly fly over to Mosaic - hovering around him rapidly in circles for a moment, before forming a pile of around a dozen tomes in his arms.

"The Informational and Transformative Dynamics of Magic - a Primer for basic magical study. The Thaumians had a rudimentary understanding of magic, but you've mastered the fundamentals intuitively."

>Crossing his arms behind his back, Doctor then continues speaking:

"So I'd say it's only fair that you learn how to advance your studies towards true mastery of the mystic arts - at least towards your level of casting prowess. Besides…."

>The Sorcerer Supreme then manifests a blue and red present box with a certain blue and red tome inside of it. Hovering it over to Mosaic's position, he then states:

"A late birthday present from me. It'll be there for you to open once you get back home. For now, you can focus on the basic tomes in front of you - but that's a special gift, to show you how much of a good friend you've been so far."

>Doctor then nods at Mosaic as he then walks towards the living room - taking a seat at one of the couches. Opposite from Doctor's couch, he then gestures for Mosaic to sit across from him with a nudge of his mask.

>Date: April 22nd, 2017
>Location: Sanctuary City - Downtown Sector
>Time: 11:00 PM

>MRD agents find themselves in a firefight against a series of Brigadiers. The hooded criminals, known for their penchant towards property damage - continue lobbing flaming grenades across the barricaded streets.

"Shit! Watch out!"

>MRD agents quickly leap for cover - barely avoiding the massive explosions that form around the barricaded cars. As the smell of burning metal seeps into the air, they quickly rise to their feet - aiming their plasma blasters.

"Shoot to neutralize, men! Take 'em down!"

>The MRD then retaliate in kind, firing off waves of plasma bolts towards the Brigadiers. As their ranks slowly go down - incapacitated due to the plasma bolts, the remaining members start to improvise.

"Fuck these pricks! Go all out!"

>Stella stops crying and looks up at Mosaic - her eyes still blood red from crying. An expression of sorrow and hopelessness fills her face as she replies:

"….I have nothing left. My family. My friends. I've lost my brother. I've lost my mother. I've even been forced to seal my father away. It's all gone."

>Stella is about to burst into tears again, before Mosaic leans in to instinctively hug her. Patting her on the back, Mosaic then says:

"….I can't change the past for you and bring it all back, Stella. I'm sorry. But I can try and help you get through this."

>After a few moments, Stella stops shaking as she takes a deep breath. Letting go of a breath that she had inhaled - she then exhales lightly and says:

"…..Alright then. Thank you, Thaumaturge."

>Mosaic shakes his head as he pulls his helmet off from his head - revealing his face and shaking his head again; moving the hair out from his face.

>Doctor then coughs into his fist briefly as he then says:

"Well, Stella. If you'd want to stay here in the Axiom with me and Crepido, we'd be more than happy to have you."

>Shaking her head, Stella maintains her vision - staring directly at Aiden.

"No, I'd like to stay close to him."

>Raising an eyebrow behind his mask, Isaac states:

"Aiden? You'd want to live on Earth?"

>Looking at Aiden still, Stella then explains:

>Looking up and down at Aiden one final time, Stella then sighs as she places one hand to her hip.

"I suppose it cannot be helped then. Very well, I will assist you at this 'Archeon'. Whatever training I need, I will divinate. As for my appearance…"

>Looking up and down at her arcane blue robes and hat. Noticing the striking appearance of the sapphire blue outfit along with its bright pink accents and highlights - she then says:

"….To further assist with my new position, I suppose a change in wardrobe is appropriate, no?"

>Snapping her fingers, Stella then watches as a bright pink light envelops her for a few moments. As the bright pink light subsides, her appearance has changed. Now sporting a more modern blue outfit, she then says:

"Well then, shall we be off now, Mister Grayson?"

>Aiden looks at Doctor who nods at him:

"I'll handle the rest Aiden. Besides, I think I have an idea of how this may connect to something else; a different case that I've been working on as of now."

>Aiden nods as Stella walks over to him. She then waves at Doctor, stating:

"Thank you, Sorcerer Supreme. I'll keep in your good graces, I promise."

>Nodding, Doctor then says:

"….I'll see about what we can do to help your brother recover his memories. It may not be easy - but it should be possible."

>Stunned and moved at the display of generosity, Stella feels another tear well up in her left eye - as she lightly brushes it away with her finger.

>Location: Archeon Incorporated
>Time: 5:00 PM

>Aiden finishes shuffling the papers around on his desk. As he does so, he watches as Stella enters the room - looking proud of herself.

"Alright, your meeting with Baryon Dynamics is scheduled for Ten thirty tomorrow morning. I've also put Minerva Solutions on for an hour after, at eleven thirty - right before lunch."

>Nodding, Aiden then says to Stella:

"How are you holding up so far after your first day at work?"

>Sighing, Stella moves some of her blonde locks of hair out of her face - looking wistfully at the bookcases on the side. Speaking to herself for a moment, she then says out loud:

"It's fine, Aiden. I've adapted to modern linguistics and terminology quite well, I'd say."
