"Are you sure this is the place?"

>A hooded figure says, hovering in the skies above the Archeon Complex. Beside him, is another hooded figure - standing on an amorphous mass of black smoke.

"You can sense him, can't you? No shit it's him."

>Blinking, the initial hooded figure then responds:

"We've only got one shot at this, Rampage. You know that right? Boss isn't gonna be happy with us if we screw this up."

>The larger and bulkier hooded figure - Rampage, looks back at his ops partner and speaks:

>Aiden gives Orion a look of disappointment and slight frustration - as he withholds the urge to immediately respond.


>Closing his eyes and sighing, Aiden then opens his eyes again as he says:

"Alright then. If that's your wish. I just…..I just wanted to…."

>Jack nods at Aiden as he speaks up.

"He just wanted to spend more time with you - but he knew deep down that he'd be asking you to risk your life for this."

>Aiden, still looking downtrodden and somewhat defeated, then looks away from Orion and Jack - instead staring out over the horizon.

>Now pacing back and forth on the rooftop, Aiden finds himself deep in thought - until he hears Jack's voice again.

"Um. Aiden? Do you have any suggestions? Anyone else who can help us here?"

>Looking up at Jack for a moment, Aiden gives a slightly quizzical expression as he states:

"Not necessarily. While Speedrunner is capable - her powers seemingly disrupt magic, at the expense of annihilating the target. Even I have to be extra careful around her."

>Jack crosses his arms as he then mulls over the other Meta-Humans that he's aware of.

"What about your sister? Phoebe."

>Aiden then speaks up in response to the suggestion.

"I don't think I'd survive if I said 'no'."

"Wait. When did she…Who….."

>Stella stands on the rooftop, a few feet away. Hands on her hips, she looks visibly annoyed with Aiden. Her long blonde hair shines faintly as she starts walking towards the two of them.

"Hey, Stella. I wasn't going to-"

>Stella then reaches Aiden's position and quickly flicks him on the forehead with her finger - doing so at a surprising speed.

{"Wow. She's definitely fast, On part with me it seems."}

>Aiden initially tries to brush past the question.

"Stella, I know that Eidolus is out there. He's too powerful to let roam free, not without some sort of countermeasure."

>Stella, immediately recognizing the deflection, puts the discussion right back in focus.

"You already promised that you'd never keep secrets from me ever again. Remember? So if you're a man of your word, and if you do care about keeping your word with me?"

>She then steps forward and gets directly into Aiden's face - giving him a look of intensity with her blue eyes, that he hasn't experienced before.

"Then tell me the truth, and nothing but the truth."

>Jack looks away, feeling awkward as his sense of being a third wheel starts to manifest itself.

>Trees rustle as a fall breeze cuts through the twilight sky, the sound spooking away some rabbits below, as well as a young girl, the presence of two vulpine ears and a tail indicating her Meta-Human status in a way that’s difficult to hide. Gulping, the girl calls out:

“G-guys? I’m done hiding now. . . y-you can find me now guys. . . Joshua? Hayden? Finlay. . ?”

>The girl jumps again as something jumps about through the bushes.

“I m-mean it guys. . . it’s getting dark. . .”

>Another breeze picks up, shaking the trees again.

“Mom said I’m not allowed out after dark and I don’t know the way back. . .”

>The rustling continues and another voice, with an invisible owner, joins the girl’s calls.

"To. . . well. . . s-see new places. So please don't send me back to Salem just yet. . ."

"Well, I don't see any issue with that, in fact, Orion was just telling me how I should make sure to help you. . ."

"I won't pretend to understand how your system of dole-ares works, but if gold is still valuable, I likely have access to more than that, vaguely."

"O-oh. . . thank you. . . I just need a hotel. . . or something. . . I don't want to stay in Sanctuary City forever."

"Well, I suppose I should collect my payment now. . ."

>Leaves rustle in the Sanctuary City park as a twilit breeze calmly brings in the start of the first light of the day, announcing the beginning of a long process of brightening to indicate the day to come.

>With the sun still below the horizon, the park itself is empty besides those who have little better to do in the early hours of the morning, creating an illusion of a peaceful lake of grass, occasionaly interrupted by a tree swaying.

>Then, like a drop of water disturbing a puddle, the peace of the park is rent asunder as space seems to fold in on itself over the grass, pulling the ground up in the air for a moment and causing several objects to float upwards before they suddenly slam back to the ground, twisted and bent into odd shapes.

>In the centre of the chaos, an odd mass without a mass floats, its form constantly shifting and changing.

" . . .these things converge, naturally, so when he hears this he should realise, she will come back for the twins, and their mother, and she will kill them if given the opportunity, she is more than capable of it, they either need to leave any place containing humanity. . . or somehow convince her that they're no longer a threat. And before he tries to interject that he will always protect them, reality is not always so forgiving."

"Captain! We're low on plasma charges! We're going to need backup from HQ! The target's getting closer!"

"Under no circumstances are we allowed to let the target near the armory! Radio to HQ if we're that low on munitions!"

>Turning back to face the figure in the distance, the MRD captain mutters under his breath.

"How would you rate the force on that, too high, too low? It's not calibrating properly."

>Apex picks up her staff, the legs retracting, and checks the balance on it.

"Don't bother making an anti-serum, I already made one, but I can agree to working with you for the caches at the very least, it would be impractical to handle them alone."

>Apex turns to look at Arachnid for the first time.

"What? Read wikipedia some time, I'm an expert chemist, you didn't think I could come up with a simple anti-serum for some low level drug once I had a sample of it?"

"More than fast enough to stun from its striking force alone - which I assume is your intent."

>Sighing, Arachnid then says:

"I'm not surprised that you could create an anti-serum. How we first met clued me in real early that you're not a 'normal' human."

["As if you could ever fail at anything."]

"You sure you don't want the stuff in my suit? I know retro-futuristic is more your aesthetic and all - but the stuff's saved my butt a few times."

>After a moment of pause, he then says what's really on his mind.

"….I'm not interested in just punching criminals all day with you. Yeah, we can raid caches, destroy supply lines, intimidate criminal collaborators - do all of that stuff, all day."

"Hell, we could take down the Crimson Tide itself - but something could take its place for all we know. You, more than anyone else, understand what happens when efficiencies aren't put in place - with any system."

>Hovering in the center of his living room - Aiden continues meditating, with his eyes closed. Sitting cross legged, various items are hovering effortlessly around the living space - chairs, bags and entire couches.


>As Aiden continues hovering in place, he maintains his cross-legged motion, as he internally speaks to himself:

{"Focus your mind. Clear your thoughts. Find your center."}

>Then there's a knock on the door frame leading out into the hallway of the house. Without opening an eye, Aiden responds:

"Hey Stella. I'm not busy - despite the appearances."

"Oh come on. Is that all you've got Jack?! I was starting to have some fun too!"

>A large mystical bolt then rushes down from above, seemingly supercharging Paladin as his body begins to glow with a faint hue of blue and white energy.

"There it is! I've been waiting for that! Ahahaha!"

>Both figures then continue fighting - flying across a seemingly infinite expanse of distance, at near instant speeds. They continue to trade blows with their punches and kicks, their spatial-temporal attacks and their reverse time loops.

>They begin summoning countless monsters and beings with their abilities - large dragons and demons. Ghouls and wraiths. Entire armies of supernatural monsters are called upon from the aether of the mystical plane in order to aid them.

>However, all of the beasts summoned by the fighters - are easily dealt with by said fighters, on opposite ends. They then resort to retroactive attacks, attempting to move through the linear progression of time in the Boundary of Aeternia - to no avail.

>The entire floor of the dimension is shattered into a near infinite amount of pieces - since the floor stretches for seemingly eternity, much like the aurora-filled skies above.

>Space and time begin to break down in a localized sense around the fighters as well, with both of them ripping apart the fabric of existence itself, only for it to restitch itself together over time, as their fight progresses.

>Eventually, they resort to mystical weaponry - Mars's Sword and Neptune's Trident clash as blood and water spontaneously appear from them both. Then Diana's bow is met by Apollo's - as an emerald glow is countered by an orange glow.

>Finally, Jupiter's blue and white lightning clashes with itself - having been summoned by them both. The collision of the mystical lightning blasts is so strong, it then ruptures and nearly destroys the entirety of the infinite dimension.

>The blast and the blinding light are so powerful, that the entire space-time continuum of the area is shattered to its very core, fragmented into seemingly trillions of microscopic pieces - before reforming itself.

>Paladin then falls to the ground - exhausted and panting heavily, his stamina finally giving out after countless periods of direct fighting.

"How long have….we….been….fighting…."

>He says, as Mosaic stands across the floor from him - partially damaged with his armor and cloak - but not nearly as much as Paladin is. Hands in his coat pockets, Mosaic looks at Paladin, as his own armor and cloak instantly repair themselves.

"So let me get this straight? You want us to help you make a frontline push towards a demonic army?"

>Phoebe looks at Jack in disbelief, as he remains where he is, standing in the middle of the parking lot - outside of Archeon. A few aches and tinges of pain continuously course through Jack's skin - a reminder of Phoebe's raw strength.

"I'm aware of how it sounds, Phoebe. But I'm dead serious. I can't do this alone, and I didn't know who else to turn to."

>Jack says, looking pleadingly in Phoebe's eyes - as the latter scoffs, narrowing her own.

"You mean there was no one else for you to actually turn to, Jack."

>Looking away, Jack feels his face slowly start to convulse - turning into a mixture of regret and self-directed anger.

"Considering how I'm technically supposed to be dead - at least as Faust, that isn't a surprise."

>Valkyrie looks at Capgras for a moment, then looks back at Paladin.

"Well, it's the same deal that the others received. If you agree to work with us, we'll avoid pressing charges for your prior actions as Faust. It's a deal only given to the most capable of Meta-Humans, given the valuable services you can provide us in the government."

>Larger emanations of magical lights begin to ripple from the space between her hands as she continues making the gestures - moving faster over time.

>Location: Sanctuary City - Residential Sector
>Time: 5:00 PM

>As Stella finishes up cooking for the night, she brings the tray of food out to Aiden and Suisei. Both of them look hungrier than usual.

"Hey, thanks Stella."

>Aiden says, as he helps her place the various food contents down on the table. As he does so, Suisei inspects the food carefully, before showing a facial expression akin to approval.

"The presentation is impressive….But what about the quality…."

>Taking her utensils, Suisei begins to eat her food - only for her eyes to light up in surprise.

"The consistency and texture….The seasoning…."

>Time: 9:30 PM

>After everyone's finished eating, they start preparing to go sleep. However, Stella is still in the kitchen, tidying up the place one last time.

>As she continues cleaning up the area, Aiden knocks on the entrance to the kitchen and speaks.

"Can I come in?"

>Stella, not looking at Aiden, responds:

"Of course you can, honey."

>Sighing, Aiden then walks into the kitchen, looking at her as she cleans. He then speaks up.

>Aiden then looks between Stella and Suisei, before he then says:

"….You both really are serious about this, aren't you?"

>Stella and Suisei each place their hands on their hips - clearly irritated by Aiden's slow realization.

"Ace detective you are, Mister Grayson."

"Really, a masterclass at deductive reasoning."

>Sighing, Aiden then thinks long and intently before he then says his next words.

"…..Alright. I can't really pick between either of you anyways, and I'm through with second guessing myself."

>Stella and Suisei both look at Aiden, each with an inquisitive expression on their face.

>Suisei then crosses her arms and looks away, closing her eyes as she smiles softly.

"Fair enough, Aiden. I can get the message."

>Stella gives a somewhat sour expression, as she then sighs to herself, twirling a small set of strands in her hair.

"….I suppose I do as well.

>Stella then looks back at Aiden and says:

"…In that case, I'll try and give you some space. I'm sure Suisei will feel the same way."

"…..Well, time to get ready for tomorrow. Stella, you can help Suisei with her stuff if she still needs to get herself settled in properly."

>Aiden then finishes putting away the last of the dishes from the sink - as he turns around and waves at both Stella and Suisei.

"See you two tomorrow morning. I've got stuff that I need to prepare for. Work."

>Stella responds to Aiden as he walks away.

"I'm going with you to the office tomorrow, remember?"

>Aiden nods as he speaks from the hallway.

>Date: August 17th, 2017
>Time: 3:47 [Relative to S.C.]
>Location: Genesis Station - South America

>The artificial island of Genesis Station is situated hundreds of miles off South America's northern edge - closer to Central America. A large concentric circle network of small settlements and buildings comprises the large structure. The simulated archipelago regularly sees little activity, as resources and building materials are airlifted into the base - using discreet methods.

>As another submersible shipment slowly rises from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean - the crew on the docking station slowly walk towards them, ready to greet their new arrivals.

"Is the material here? We're on a tight schedule, agents."

>One of the research scientists looks impatient, as a figure in reinforced armor slowly exits from the submersible's exterior. Carrying with them a large black canister with glowing wiring - the armored figure looks down at it for a moment.

"We're well aware, doctor. Now if you'll excuse us, we have a command center to report to."

>The armored figure is one of Eukaryon's - utilizing magical equipment to reinforce their strength and general power. Behind the figure are two more figures slowly flanking them.

>As Mechanicus is about to teleport himself and Hyperia to the locked on TTC, he suddenly gets another emergency alert on his helmet's HUD.

"….Uh oh. That's unexpected."

>Hyperia looks at Mechanicus, confused.

"What's wrong, Sammy?"

>Mechanicus looks back at Hyperia, with an amazed expression on his face.

"….I think your cousin just solved the issue themselves. More astonishingly - they've activated a Remote Arch signal. Unbelievable."

>Location: Chimera's TTC
>Time: Irrelevant

>As the blue light dies down, both Chimera and Fugue are on the floor - dazed. After a few moments, Chimera reacts first - slowly rising to his feet as he groans in pain. Now placing a hand to his head, he then scowls and mutters to himself.

"What the hell happened……"

>Looking back at Fugue, who's now slowly risen to his feet, he looks at him and asks the obvious question.

"Jakob! Are you OK?!"

>Chimera quickly rushes forward to inspect his brother's armor. The bright red circuit patterns are completely gone, and Fugue looks seemingly fine as he was before.

"Yeah…I feel better. What did you do, Marek?"

>As Mechanicus finishes his biometric scan of Chimera and Fugue, he then turns back to Hyperia, stating:

"It's exactly as I expected. They're Chronarchs now."

>Blinking for a moment, Hyperia then says:

"….I'm sorry, WHAT?!?!."

>Mechanicus holds up one hand to clarify.

"Well, not entirely. They're more like part Chronarch now. Remember, each TTC needs a trans-dimensional key signature with a Chronarch in order to operate. That was the safety precaution made to ensure that they don't fall into the wrong hands."

>After a few minutes of instructing Chimera and Fugue on how to operate the machine, Mechanicus then speaks to Chimera once more.

"Remember, this is your TTC now. It's keyed to your trans-temporal signature. Ouranos has no control over it anymore. That doesn't mean he's going to be thrilled about it - but he'll have to take it up with all of us now."

>Nodding, Chimera looks down at the controls as he then speaks up.

"It felt like near gibberish before. All these symbols and numbers. I could barely make sense of it with my core intuition ability. But now? It's like reading a book."

>Mechanicus crosses his arms as he observes Chimera's statements.

"As I expected. You're a Thulcandran now - but unlike your cousin, you lack my memories. Meaning you'll be going at a snail's pace compared to him, and he's a Chronarch. You're still just a normal Thulcandran, so I wouldn't use this machine frequently - if ever."

>Sighing, Chimera then mutters to himself once more.

"..So they turned into Thulcandrans then?"

>Aiden says as he brings a bottle of champagne to the table where Phoebe and Virgil are sitting. As they're both drinking water from their glasses - they watch as Aiden effortlessly pours the delicacy into their separate glasses.

"In a manner of speaking, yes. For lack of a better term - they became part-alien."

>Taking a moment to consider the notion, Aiden then gives a casual shrug.

"It wouldn't be the strangest occurrence that happened within the past thirty days or so."
