This part's a tricky one. It uses the whole teaming up system that was seen in Sync 1's Revival of the Darkness Asphyxiated. (Longest part in the Sync series yet, taking up about five or six journal entries.)
I can say though that this part PROBABLY wont' be as long... ._.;
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
...
[The Femmes Flames fought alongside Chris and defeated Smoke-Blayde, though only temporarily. An attack from the Abomination has left Chris lethargic and incapable of even speaking. Little does he know that a powerful venom is coursing through his veins at this moment. Anema wishes to help, but there is nothing he can do as a spirit. The Femmes Flames leader, Flare, has taken it upon herself to find safety for Chris even with the knowledge that he once caused Earth more trouble than most can imagine. The four are unaware of where to go, but they have a slight idea after watching Kenny and Roger dash off into the burning city.]
...
...
...
[They have spotted Kenny and Roger heading into a two story building. Flare assembles her small, strange team and heads into the gun store, hearing voices from downstairs. She leads the team into a secret section of the store...

(Flare - Ghost - Mouse - Kinesis)
...
-Evacuation Cavern.-
Flare: [Cradling Chris still.] ...Shh...
Kenny: [Standing behind the fire door.] Hey Sacreda! We're back... Nothing came and ate everybody while we were gone, right?
Sacreda: I... do not know if there would be any interest. [She places a palm against the fire. It subsides, and Kenny and Roger walk through.]
Mouse: Ooh, a fire door~.
Kinesis: Shall I?
Flare: Well we can't just barge on in. This is Sacreda we're dealing with.
Ghost: It looks like she's working on the Light side...
Mouse: Why don't you just invite her to the Femmes Flames~? She's so us~!
Flare: Shhh!
Sacreda: [Her ears flicker... She looks back at the still-subsided fire door...] ... [Walks to the door, closing the flames in on each other.]
Flare: Um, Sacreda? Miss Sacreda? We're not bad...
Mouse: We're good people~!
Sacreda: Ah, I thought I heard voices... And voices I recognized. The Femmes Flames... [She opens the fire door again, looking up at them.] With Chris! By the angels, what have you done?
Flare: [Walks forward.] We had a little run-in with this Antifigurate Scorpius cross. Chris here sent him packing, sorta...
Ghost: He was struck by one of that Scorpius' tails.
Sacreda: Oh, this could be quite dastardly... [She holds out her arms.] Here, I will take him. I could find a vacant bed for him to lay upon, perhaps that will sooth his body.
Flare: [She gently hands Chris to Sacreda.]
Mouse: Miss Sacreda, what are you doing on Anti~?
Sacreda: [Holding Chris over her shoulder. She is walking deeper into the shelter while still talking.] That Vincefourth's powerful outburst was focused on us Believers and Saviors. It sent us across Fantasy. I was fortunate enough to come here with Len... I am worried about the others, especially my son.
Flare: They're tough, don't worry. I know they're all fine...
[Sacreda locates the three Eclipses. Kenny and Roger are speaking with Kylie.]
...
Kylie: So, he was just gone?
Roger: Man, we thought he was following us. When we found that he wasn't... yeesh...
Kylie: You warheads! All of that training has just made you too hasty! You need to really look back for once... like... literally.
Kenny: C'mon Ky, it's Chris. I doubt he's like... hurt...
Sacreda: You may wish to reconsider...
[They turn to Sacreda.]
Kylie: [Gasps.] Is that Chris!?
Roger: ...[Smacks his forehead.] ...s**t.
Flare: We saw you two run off somewhere, and you left Chris behind... We had to fight this Scorpius guy.
Roger: ...Smoke-Blayde.
Kylie: You see!?! He is hurt, and it's all because you left him!!
Kenny: Ky... look, I--
Kylie: No no no! You look. This boy has been through thick and thin to keep us from being smashed up by Darkness, and you just leave him to fight with that kinda force? Sacreda? [Looks to Sacreda.] May I hold him?
Sacreda: Yes, you may. [She gives Chris to Kylie, who in turn hugs him close to herself.]
Kylie: Awww, poor little guy. [Looks back up to Kenny and Roger.] For your sake, he'd better be awake in an hour...
Flare: I don't mean to interrupt on anything, but... With how aggressively Smoke-Blayde -- if that was his name -- was fighting, I don't think there was any way for this to be avoided. He sent Nightmares after us, so he would've done the same if more people were helping the cause.
Ghost: Not to mention he was focusing primarily on landing some sort of attack on Chris.
Kenny: ...Whoever you girls are, I'm glad you brought him here... Any chance I could get your names? If you helped Chris fight, you're the real deal.
Roger: Fo sho.
Flare: Sure. I'm Flare.
Mouse: Mouse~! [Giggles.]
Ghost: My name's Ghost.
Kinesis: You may call me Kinesis.
Flare: We're the Femmes Flames. A small sort of "prototype" force of Awgo's.
Kylie: [She lays Chris in her lap, stroking his head with two fingers.] So, if you're with Awgo and you fought with the "Believer" here...
Sacreda: ...Hmhm, I knew Awgo would assist us.
Flare: Awgo's enemy here is Hellspawned...
Kenny: Is it everyone's enemy.
Ghost: Exactly...
...
Roger: [He looks around the cavern.] ...Wasn't Billy here a moment ago? Before we left to see what that noise was all about?
Sacreda: Len left just after you did. I do not know what his resolve was...
Kenny: That guy's gonna keep getting in trouble if he goes off all by himself... Hell, I did that. I'm still fine. He needs better people skills.
Kylie: Kenny, I don't think he needs people skills to not be captured by the forces of an evil empire.
[Suddenly, another explosion is heard... then another. Then another.]
Kenny: JESUS CHRIST. [His hands are over his ears.] WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?
Flare: Eep, that was loud... [Her ears are flat.]
Mouse: Owie...
Kylie: You know, we really need to find out what's going on up on the surface.
Kenny: [Shakes his head, spreading his hands out.] Booms... Okay... [Looks around at the gathering.] ...Lot of people here... We're gonna have to split up into separate groups of four, three, five... whatever floats your boat, but what we need to do is hurry. Those blasts sound like they're getting closer and I don't think a cavern of this size is gonna protect against something like that. Hell, nothing can if the blast is big enough.
Kylie: [She stands, setting Chris on the bed.] I'll help out. I've wasted enough time laying here as it is.
Kenny: You sure. You feeling all good?
Kylie: I'm fine. Trust me, I've been worse.
Roger: An army from Hell is destroying Port Esca. You feel fine now?
Kylie: Army from Hell? I thought that was the Scailians...
Kenny: Tooooo-shay.
Roger: It's touché...
Kenny: Shut up. Okay, I know the Femmes Fireballs or whatever are gonna wanna team up.
Flare: That's Femmes Flames...
Kenny: And Sacred here is strong enough to travel in a group of probably two...
Sacreda: I... am Sacreda...
Roger: [Stares at Kenny.] ...You suck at remembering names.
Kenny: Since when was touché a name, dill weed?
...
[A dark corridor appears at the wall of the cave... It vanishes, leaving behind a hooded Idi, crossing his arms and leaning against the wall.]
Kenny: [Looks back at the wall.] ...You're shitting me.
Idi: [Looks up, revealing his face.] I have not seen your face for some time, Kenny... the Killer.
Kenny: [Draws his weapon, aiming it at Idi with one arm. This gathers the attention of everyone in the cavern. it goes silent.] ...Why're you here?
Idi: To help you... To help Chris. To destroy Hellspawned. To hinder Darkness.
Roger: Kenny, chill out.
Kylie: He's not lying. Chris told me to trust him.
Roger: He told me that too. Idi's changed, man...
Idi: If you do not believe, fire away. I am fire anyway...
...
Kenny: [Kenny twirls his gun with one finger before sheathing it in its holster again.] Hell, I'll play your game...
Idi: This is no game... Yet, I find it amusing.
Kenny: Tch... [Looks back at Chris.]
Idi: ...[Notices Chris unconscious.] ...He is alright. The dark energy within him will consume the venom.
Roger: How... the hell... did you know?
Idi: [He points at Chris. More specifically, at his shoulder.] The wound. It is a Scorpius marking. Smoke-Blayde. Scorpius venom.
Kenny: Show off.
Idi: It is no talent. It is knowledge.
Kenny: ...Hmph... Well, we were just about to see what the commotion was on the surface.
Kylie: Care to join us, Idi?
Idi: Very well.
Kenny: Alright... We've got nine of us willing to get our hands dirty. Am I right?
Flare: Nine? That would mean... if we were to go as a group...
Ghost: It wouldn't work too well.
Flare: Do you think we should see how well we do when we're not all together?
Mouse: It would be a test~!
Kinesis: Fine by me.
Kenny: Okay, Roger... since you trust Idi so much...
...
[Kenny organizes the groups fairly...]
...
[Group 1: Idi, Roger, Kinesis.

Group 2: Kenny, Kylie, Mouse.

Group 3: Sacreda, Flare, Ghost.]
...
...
Kenny: We all good?
Roger: Of course you team up with Kylie...
[Kylie laughs, wrapping both arms around Kenny's torso from behind.]
Kenny: Someone's a genius.
Mouse: [Looks up at Kenny, standing at his feet.] I'm with you~!
Kylie: Oh my God... [Bends over and picks Mouse up.] You are so tiny... And so cute...
Idi: Hmph... Roger. You are with me then.
Roger: Right you are, sir.
Kinesis: And I would be with you two.
Idi: Very well. May I have your name?
Kinesis: I am Kinesis.
Idi: I see. I am Idi. It is a pleasure to work with you.
Kinesis: Hm, the pleasure is mine.
Roger: Emo city...
Sacreda: Ghost and Flare? We are teaming up?
Ghost: Looks like we are.
Flare: So much for changing things up!
Sacreda: Hmhm, the way I see it, things will be the same.
Ghost: If you mean things lighting on fire, then yeah.
Sacreda: I do, in fact.
Kenny: Hey! I'm gonna assign us areas to check out. No sense in running all over the place like a bunch'a monkeys.
Roger: Monkeys...? ...[Chuckles.] Monkeys...
Kenny: Shut up... Ju--...Shut up, Roger.
...
[Group 1: Navy Hill.

Group 2: The Mist.

Group 3: Federal Bay.]

Kenny: We all know where we're going now, right?
[Nods and affirmations.]
Flare: Could I ask... what exactly are we looking for?
Kenny: Let's treat this as a clean up crew. I'm not gonna deal with Darkness as it is, but Hellspawned? Hellll no. Those Awgo bots are doing a fine job helping us out, and so are the Lighties. But I know we're the real force here, and it's time we prove that.
Roger: Right on, man.
Kylie: Ken, what about Chris?
Kenny: Should've let you guys know, my bad. I asked a few of the Lighties here to watch him.
Idi: He should wake up soon. There are certain sections of the body where the venom is less potent, and the shoulder is included in that group.
Kenny: Thank God... Okay, good. We ready to get out there!?
Flare: Ready!
Roger: Roarin'.
Sacreda: I am ready.
Kylie: Good to go, so let's!
Kenny: Good enough for me. When you think you've finished clearing things up, head back to the park in the center of the port, for those of you who aren't exactly famil' with Esca. If we're ready to roll, then let's rock.
...
[The three groups head out of the shelter, receiving many forms of "good luck" as they leave.]
...
...
...
Anema: (Good thing they're taking charge... But poor Chris... ...I could see what he's dreaming about... Maybe I'll do that.)
...
Chris: ...
...
...
...
-Chris' Dream.-
...
...
...
[There is nothing of this dream... Just blackness.]
...
...
...
[A voice is heard.]
...
...
...
...("Elicia apparently has the power to dispel Darkness on scales we can't even imagine." wink ...
...
...("How much do you all hate Epathy?" wink ...
...
...("...Ergh ...Y-you're right... I am a villain, but I don't serve under this Darkness..." wink
...
...("All shall know my name. All shall bow before me. I am 4th. I am 4th. I am 4th. I am 4th." wink
...
...[Suddenly, an entirely new memory fills his mind...]
...("The Eclipses were once a mighty force... Before Light or Darkness, the Eclipses kept order within Fantasy, trillions of years ago... Time passed, and a peculiar disruption felled the might of the Eclipses. I believe this was known as the Big Bang... The Creation of Reality... With it, Light and Darkness were born. Fantasy began expanding. It was chaos... Sheer chaos. Eclipses began to become more vulnerable as time passed. They became so vulnerable that a savior was required to keep them from withering into nothingness... That savior... was you Chris..." wink ...
...
...(" I am... a servant of BlackMatter... I was sent here by the Creator to ensure that Grayness never comes together! And I shall do just that!!" wink
...
...("Chris... I do not know where your absolute birthplace is... It is not Reality. It is not Fantasy..." wink ...
...
...(There is a place so surreal, the only way to reach it is fall into a slumber so deep that your mind and soul drift from your body... and enter a world which Reality created.)...
...
...
...
Anema: (What is all of that...? A world which Reality created? ...The only thing I am is a mind and a soul... Could I reach this place? ...I can't just leave Chris...)
...
[Meanwhile, the operation to rid Esca of Hellspawned and Darkness is underway.]
...
...
...
GROUP 1:
User ImageUser ImageUser Image
(Idi - Roger - Kinesis)
...
[This group reaches their destination the quickest, seeing as how Idi is capable of manipulating dark corridors. They are the only group that has been assigned an area outside of the city.]
-Navy Hill.-
...
Idi: [A fairly large corridor appears, then disperses, leaving the three behind. Roger steps ahead of the group, shotgun held in both hands.]
Roger: Damn... It's quiet up here.
Kinesis: Very.
Idi: Hmmm... [Conjures his scythe in one hand behind him.] On guard.
Roger: Hear somethin'...?
Idi: ... Head for the tower. [Looks to the small, light-house-like tower.]
[The two do as Idi says. idi himself is behind the two, checking the rear...]
...
Roger: [Roger places an ear against the thin wooden door leading into the tower... He hears voices inside.]
...
-Navy Hill Tower.-
...
???: [Deep, {macho, you could say} voice. Seems to have a Spanish accent.] Silence, you. [Thump.]
???: Uck!! You foul Scailians!! Why have you returned...?
???: We need not tell you a thing, you foolhardy lunatic.
???: I'm no lunatic... At least, not the lunatic here.
???: Say what you will! I'll just have these Nightmares tear you to pieces in the mean time...
Roger: Nightmares. [Signals with his fingers that he is going to break down the door on three.]
...
[One... two... three.]
Roger: [Pushes himself forward with his foot out, blasting through the door like an over sized bullet. The door breaks off of its hinges and Roger rushes in, shotgun aimed forward.]
Idi: [Rushes in with Kinesis, running to Roger's left while she takes Roger's right.]
Roger: [Raises his head a bit. ]...Whaaa...?
???: [Three Nightmares surround a small wooden chair near him. He is wearing an Escan uniform and a top hat with the country's colors, but is actually not of the country.]

~Raymundo~ User Image

Raymundo: Intruders!! [Points a revolver at Roger.] Leave now. I will shoot!
Roger: ...Raymundo...
Raymundo: [Finally realizes who the intruders are.] Aye. Roger!? [Turns to Idi.] ...What is going on!?
Roger: I thought Kenny killed you...
Raymundo: Kenny cannot kill me! I am a Scailian general, invincible! With Darkness by my side, I cannot lose! And I was about to destroy this pathetic foolhardy lunatic! [Looks back at the Antifigurate in the chair; a very strange individual.]
Roger: Captain...?

~Captain Helpful~ User Image

[He is wearing typical superhero clothes: a cape and a mask and a tight outfit.]
Captain Helpful: Famous war hero Roger. With friends. I was never happier to see you.
Idi: Officer Raymundo, there are some things that you should not trifle with. Darkness is one of them...
Raymundo: Idi... It is you. You traitor!!
Roger: This is ironic. Former Scailian officers seeing conflict. One just turned to Darkness and one just turned on Darkness.
Idi: ...I will eliminate you, Raymundo. You are nothing to Darkness. You are a mere spec of insignificance. [His scythe begins to burn more violently.]
Raymundo: All words. Nothing changes... Nightmares, after them!
[The Nightmares turn their attention to the three...]
...

--To Be Continued.--
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Surprised or not, there's another Re-Episode coming up. xD
Planning on doing two per part now. Both of them gotta be before the BlackMatter Enemy battle also.
