Back again!And whaddya know!?
With more Sync!
...
I can really tell some of you just know that I'm not gonna continue the other one...
Actually, I will soon. I really got tired of things not making sense or really connecting too well... That and Grovyle's name was being spelt wrong the whole time... (Can't believe that...)
You don't even have to go very far to see that, it's super recent Sync.
Sorry these parts are moving so slow... I'm pretty caught up in schoolwork now, like I can see most of you are...
You probably wouldn't want to do more reading in someone's journal, huh? xDDD
Well hey, this is for sheer enjoyment, like I've mentioned before.
I read other people's journals for ideas and inspiration. =D
...'Kay, I'll shut up now!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
...
Chris: What do you want!?
Iphilas: The needs are simple... Come with me, and don't give any resistance...
Chris: Why? What do you need with me?
Iphilas: Just save all of the questions for later... I'm saving you, let's put it at that.
Chris: Seems more like you're kidnapping me...
Iphilas: [Sighs.] I should've expected this... Listen...
[Thunder crashes...]
Iphilas: Do you know what is going to happen in only a matter of days?
Chris: ...The...End...?
Iphilas: Correct... The Apocolypse...
Chris: You're trying to save me from the Apocolypse...? How're you proposing to do that?
Iphilas:...Because... I am from the future...
Chris: [Points at Iphilas abruptly, as if he had spotted something.] That's a lie!
Iphilas: Listen!!... It may seem unbelievable, but it's true... I come from a future of complete paralyzation...
Chris: ...[Lowers his arm.] Paralyzation...?
Iphilas: Yes... The world of Reality, fallen into the hands of despair... Our only refuge is Fantasy...
Chris: Darkness rules Reality...? Fantasy is refuge...?
Iphilas: Oh, if only you could understand, but... They told me not to tell you the way it happened...
Chris: What're you talking about...?
Iphilas: All I can say is... The Apocolypse was not that of an immense natural disaster... Not that of spacial causes... Not of temporal causes... However, with the Apocolypse Trigger, it's all terribly true...
Chris: The Apocolypse Trigger...?
Iphilas: Bah, I've told you too much... Just come with me.
Chris: ...Tell me one more thing, and I'll come with you...
Iphilas: [Sighs again.] Fine, what?
Chris: Who is the Apocolypse Trigger?
Iphilas: Erm--... [Glances around nervously.] ...
...
Chris: Well...?
Iphilas: This will all be revealed soon... Please, just come with me...
Chris: ...Whatever... If you eventually tell me, I guess I have to come with...
Iphilas: If you need to make any preparations, do so quickly...
Chris: (Oh, first he tells me to rush, now he's asking if I have anything to do before I gotta go... This guy is way too quick with everything... Where's he from anyway...?)
...
[Chris does in fact take a couple minutes to get situated... He grabs a black jacket from his closet, and a pair of rain slacks. He simply covers his pajama set with his "ready" set.]
Chris: It'll have to do.
Iphilas: Very well. I assume you are ready?
Chris: Ready.
Iphilas: ...No, he shouldn't... [Turns his head.]
Chris: Huh?
Iphilas: Might you need your power module...? Or, actually...
Chris: Oh, yeah. Forgot... One second... [Dashes back to the closet and grabs a complex, silver device, shaped like a wristband. Chris slips it on and his body instantly sparks a bit with energy, signaling that his nerves now possess magical ability.]
Iphilas: [Under his breath.] Perhaps I... shouldn't've...
Chris: Hmm?
Iphilas: Nevermind, nothing. Come quickly. [Literally dives out the window. Not a sound is made upon contact with the soaked ground.]
Chris: (Do I really have to... do this?) ...[Hesitating a moment, he glances at the small picture to his left, on a counter... The picture is of his family years back: Him, Epathy, Elicia, Rocese, Myst, and his father, all just glad to be with eachother... The picture of life... In this moment, all Chris can think of is melancholy...Suddenly, interupted out of his trance...]
Iphilas: [From below.] Are you coming!?
Chris: [His head twirls around, staring back outside the window. Glaring at the storm, he quickly makes a dash forward and leaps out the shattered window, landing with a somersault and the ground, lightning flashes as well.]
Epathy: [Jolts through the bedroom door and his eyes shoot open wide.] Chris!!
Iphilas: Hm?!
Chris: [Spins arouns and holds his arm out at his broken window.] Epathy!!
Iphilas: Forget it! We have to hurry! [Grabs Chris' other arm.]
Chris: Let me go! [Struggles.] I can't leave Epathy... I just can't...
Iphilas: You can and you have to! You're brother is strong! He will live on!
Chris: ...How do you know this...? How do you know about me!? [Breaks free from Iphilas' grip.] Just tell me what's going on!
Iphilas: ...[Lowers his head...]
...
Chris: [Clenching his fists tightly and breathing heavily.] ...
Iphilas: ...I've done all I can... And now I have to say one thing... Possibly the only thing that will get you to listen to me...
Chris: [Despite his anger, he listens.]
Iphilas: ...These people... These people you have lived with...
...
...
Are not your family.
...
Chris: [His eyes slowly open widely and his breathing gets slower...] ...
...No...
(This... this isn't...
True...)
...
...
Iphilas: I know it's hard... I know you've lived with them for long enough to love them dearly... But even they know all too well that you are not really one of them... You never were... It's time to leave this lie... It's time to move on...
...
[Now, everything has gone silent for Chris... Only raindrops are heard... Nothing else... No wind... No thunder... nothing but soft rain... Images of Chris' family... Epathy... Elicia... Rocese... Myst... And His Father... Lastly... the picture... Everything... a lie... into Darkness...]
...
(...It can't be...)
Iphilas: ...I'm sorry! But you have to accept what this life faces you!!
Chris: ...[Fists tighten.] ...Why should I... accept it... When it's a lie...?
Iphilas: Lies are only obstacles... You can pull through... Just come with me.
Epathy: [From the window above.] Chris!!
Chris: ...But... Who's the liar here...?
Iphilas: There's no time for that, we have to hurry!
Epathy: [Leaps out of the window, landing between Iphilas and Chris.] Leave him alone! [Throws both arms out, defending Chris.]
Iphilas: ...Epathy Lunhalo...I have no quarrel with you... You know very well that this moment would come eventually...
Epathy: That doesn't concern me anymore Iphilas! I've grown too close to Chris to let you just take him, Iphilas! So what if he's who he is!?
Chris: Epathy... You know him?
Epathy: [Turns his head a bit, water already dripping from his muzzle.] Chris... I...
Iphilas: The time is near... No one can deny it... The disaster will be immense, no matter what. I am bringing a favor to the future... I am bringing the Apocolypse's lesser, instead of its full potency. It is inevitable that Chris finds about his true past...
Epathy: [Drops his arms a bit.] ...Does... he have to...? I can't imagine life without such a brother...like him...
Iphilas: He's not your brother, Epathy.
Epathy: [Head droops forward.] ...I...I know...
Chris: [Shocked, he steps back twice.] ...Epathy...
...
[There is no action from anyone for what seems like minutes...]
...
Chris: No...No!!! [He jolts off, sprinting at full speed off into the distance...]
Epathy & Iphilas: Chris!!!
[Iphilas dashes after Chris, while Epathy remains completely still, on the verge of tears...]
...
Iphilas: [Running through the storm.] Damn! I knew it was too much! I'll never be able to bring him back in time if this keeps up! [Just at that moment, a lethal thought crosses Iphilas' mind. At this, he instantly stops, almost falling in the process.] No... If I tamper any further with the past, it will ensue catastrophicly, even for Fantasy... Chris is already on the path to becoming... Erggg, I knew this wild idea should've never been established! [In mid-sentence, Iphilas spins around, and proceeds back to where he was before.]
...
[Now it's almost as if Chris was back in the first horrible dream he had merely a night ago; runnning through the land of Darkness, escaping evil... Only, he's running from home...]
Chris: (...They...lied to me... all my life...? Was my entire life one big joke...? If it was...then maybe I'm better off dead...) [From his effort, he finally collapses over a fallen tree branch, landing roughly on the soaked, muddly ground.] Agh!! ... [Muffled.] Errrff... [He manages to lift himself from the ground, and resume, but not for very long... Chris reaches an enormous promontory overlooking a chaotic sea. Waves of about 30 to 45 feet crashing violently against the large cliff-face. Lighting flashing every 3 seconds, dangerously close to Chris' position. This cliff is about 300 feet above the sea...]
...
Chris: You...You've got to be kidding me!!... [Chris approaches the edge of the cliff, looking out at the strange sensation taking place at sea. A wall of water of about 250 feet was approaching, and fast.] No... This can't be happening... It isn't... This is not happening!!! It's just another nightmaaaaaaaaaaaaaare!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [He screams into the mayhem, as lightning crashes through the overhang of the cliff, breaking it apart and sending everything, including Chris, plummeting to the black waters below...]
...
[Chris breaks through the surface of the water... He feels no pain upon entrance... He sinks deeper... Sinking deeper... sinking... sinking. Nothing can be heard around him... Even deeper he goes... Everything is pitch black...]
...(Where am I...? ... What's going on...? ... Am I dead...? It's so quiet... ... It seems like nothing's going on around me anymore... Like time has stopped... Where... is this...?)...
[For what seems like hours, this nothingness continues... In reality, it has only been minutes...]
...

Naught: Child...
...(Naught...? Is... that you?)...
Naught: You are correct... It is I, Overlord of Misery...
...(What do you want with me?)...
Naught: Fear not, for I have not come to you to destroy you... No longer shall I do so...
...(No longer...?)...
Naught: Yes... For you shall become my Advocate...
...(Why...? Why me, of everyone...?)...
Naught: Simply because you are unique... Unlike others, you possess something beyond mortal comprehension... The ability of travel...
...(Travel...?)...
Naught: Time travel... In time itself, you shall learn how to manipulate this ability, and eventually uncover your true past... However, for that to be possible, join me... We shall rule the barren wasteland that will come to be a paralyzed world... A World of Darkness...
...(My true past...Everything in my life has been a lie...And you are willing to help...? You, who tried to destroy me in the past?)...
Naught: Long before I sought you possess immense power... The very power Darkness needs in order to obtain domination over Reality... Come to me, Chris... I shall give you great power... Need not worry of these lies... For I shall bring you the truth... Light has coaxed you into tricks... Darkness shall bring you to truth... Come to me...
...(Naught...If what you say is true...If I can really find my past through Darkness...then so be it...Light has lied to me, even though I've given everything to it...Now I give everything to Darkness... Because it really is...the only way...)...
Naught: Indeed it is... Indeed it is... Through trial... I shall see if what to say... is the truth, as Darkness shall provide unto you... Overcome and achieve...
...

[The sound of an ocean's gentle waves crashing on a beach are heard...]
...
Chris: [Drenched in saltwater, and laying on his back in sand.] ... [He opens his eyes.] Oh, man... what in the world happened...? [Sits up and shakes his head, ridding some of the sand from his hair.] Wow, I'm soaked... Where the heck am I though? 'Place looks almost familiar... This beach... [Runs his hand through the sand.] Have I been here before...? [Takes another glance around.] I...I have... The Pokemon Eclipse... Maybe I should see if everyone's still in town... It hasn't been too long... [Chris stands up, and proceeds up a hill...]

Yup.
I'm excited too!
I make it seem like some sort of trailer... 'Course, if it was:
I'D FLIP OUT AND GO ABSOLUTELY INSANE FOR THREE DAYS STRAIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...Dang, too many "!"s... There's a 1 in there somewhere... Lol...
Well... I'll see you guys again, and I've probably said this before, but don't mind any spelling errors of mine. x.x
They're very common, so... If something just doesn't make sense, like Copy it or something, and paste-PM me that... I'll see what I can do to fix it.
Until then! (I guess.)
