This episode will clarify who Conception is... About The Reaper, however...
He's not gonna be revealed for a little.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[The Eclipses, Creators and creations have united and devised a very sudden plan to retake Pachi's home: the Crystal Forest. The reasons for this are simple. The Crystal Forest is home to Pachi and all of his creations, which most of have not gone bad. Edge and Risu do not live with their brother due to certain reasons from their past, but they are temporarily taking shelter there, along with one of their creations each. Phi creates figures known as Phoben, who are, in all technicality, the step between Antifigurates and humans, but even modern Antifigurates have more detail. Phi lives further east of Subo's mansion, though think of he and Pachi as good friends. Obviously, Pachi and Risu are both Pokémon, so they create Pokémon, though most of their creations vary from the common thought. Edge is not a Pokémon, but a Neopet. Subo is, as mentioned previously, a Creek who owns the mansion.]
...
[The alliance has been split into four smaller groups, organized as fairly as possible.]
GROUP 1:
User ImageUser ImageUser Image
(Pachi - Kutzu - Arace)
...
[Group 1 is taking the northernmost route, arching into Crystal Forest's northerly points. For them to do that, they have to make it through the Arid Pass, a dry wasteland where only hostile Creators live, though very few.]
-Arid Pass.-
...
[The green rolling landscape dies out, becoming dry, brown brush and sand. It becomes a desert.]
Kutzu: Oh my gosh... It's kind of hot here.
Arace: Isn't it? It's such a wonder that all of the environments here are the way they are.
Kutzu: Environments? I know this is a desert, and then the forest is south, I think...
Arace: You're right. We're in the desert, while there's actually a swamp south of your place, right Pachi?
Pachi: Yes~. The swamp leads to a river that flows into Lake Shining, just west of my place.
Kutzu: Like wow... So Pachi...
Pachi: Uh-huh? [Turns his head a little, walking by Kutzu's side.]
Kutzu: What's this world like...? What is living in a world where you can create like?
Pachi: Hm, it's fun! But, there's gotta be catches to living like this, right? Of course~! If we don't create creatures are like us, it messes with our head. It unleashes a thing called Mind Trigger, which messes with both us and that "wrong" creation.
Kutzu: Hmm... [Blinks, tilting his head a little.]
Pachi: It's a little tough to grasp, but let me elaborate. ♪ Take me for example. Each of us Pokémon have a "type" that holds powers. We can have up to two, and we can even evolve to change our types. Me and Risu gotta create stuffs like that. If we create, say... a Creek like Arace here, things go wrong~.
Arace: I know a little bit about it, too. What happens is the Creator begins to act like that creation, the one they created wrong. It'll be vice-versa for the creation though.
Kutzu: Oh, so the creation totally acts like his or her Creator?
Pachi: Yep... and even worse, the creation, since a Creator's mind is more powerful, will actually turn them into their Creator!
Kutzu: Oh gosh, so like... how does that work?
Pachi: Its not pretty, no no. That creation must be "deleted"...
Arace: Killed, in other words.
Kutzu: My gosh... That's horrible...
Pachi: But the beauty of it is... it's bypass-able! I created Cree over a series of months! He's not a Pokémon... and he's a Creator.
Arace: Pachi's got this ability to imagine wild things... And for some reason, that allows him to create beyond his natural limits.
Pachi: But that comes with consequences...
Kutzu: I take it the whole reason Safiri, Kenny, and I are here is part of that consequence?
Pachi: You are right, ma'am! Creations of mine got a little... envious... I guess... But, you have no idea how thankful I am of you, Kutzu. You came down here to our little world just to help out with this cause...
Kutzu: Aww, you're welcome, Cutie! Darkness got involved, and that means that it's our problem too... especially since it affects our worlds.
Pachi: Well don't you worry~! I will certainly do everything in my wittle power to help you too!
...
[With no trouble and the treeline in sight, this group is in the clear...]
...
GROUP 2:
User ImageUser ImageUser Image
(Edge - Safiri - Subo)
...
[These three have decided to take the detour through the aforementioned swampy area. Just as well as Arid Pass, this area contains a few hostile Creators.]
...
-Ripple Wetlands.-
[The swamp is thick with a strangely teal vegetation. The water, too, is teal in color.]
Safiri: Gee, such strange plants... They have a powerful life force.
Subo: I see you are able to connect to the energy of plants.
Safiri: Yeah, I guess it comes naturally.
Subo: Your very being is botanic, after all, thus your life force may feel many different ones. But yes, yes indeed, the plants here grow very healthy. So healthy, in fact, that they have an advanced form of photosynthesis.
Safiri: Advanced form of photosynthesis...?
Subo: Correct. Radianthysis. They absorb so much energy from our star that their life force can be shared with other plant-life in close proximity. Put simply, it radiates.
Safiri: ...That's so much like home... The Ancient Growth Forest on Safa... How ironic, Conception is after that.
Edge: So that's what the rebels want from your home, Safiri?
Safiri: Darkness wanted it too. If they got that kind of power, they would become a greater threat to Light.
Edge: This is so sad. Vulpix and Darkrai were Pachi's first creations... and they would go so far as to put other worlds in danger to eliminate him.
Safiri: ...Going to huge lengths to succeed in horrible goals... That is Darkness.
Subo: Indeed, it is horrible. If they succeed in harnessing such energy, they could very well alter the nature of our world.
Edge: S-Subo?! You think they could alter the very nature of Theory?!
Subo: Yes, it is very possible, of course, very difficult. If Darkness is as powerful as it sounds, then...
Edge: ...I knew they could mess things up, but not on that scale...
Subo: The combination of a growing Conception and an already powerful Darkness could have cataclysmic results.
Safiri: Well, it's not gonna happen. Darkness, Hellspawned, Conception, I don't care who. I won't let them overtake the Ancient Growth's sacred aura for uses like that.
Subo: ...I am so anxious to see the variety of powers you manipulate, Safiri. I, too, can feel a very lively life force... but it is not these plants.
Safiri: [She smiles, chuckling.]
...
[They continue through the thick vegetation.]
...
[Group 3's travel path is the simplest of the four. They are to approach the Crystal Forest head on. There are very little obstacles in their way as they travel across the Rolling Prairie.]
...
P A R T Y:

(Risu - Kenny - Kat)
...
-Rolling Prairie.-
...
Risu: Those no good Conception rebels! Ugh! Pachi trusted them for so long, and they just flake on him like that! ...Those traitors...
Kenny: Pretty upset about it, aren't ya?
Risu: You know it. Those dirty, cheap, liars! After everything Pachi's done for them. They should be happy their Creators a little... different... I'm happy for him. He's my brother... And I'm happy for him. There are a lot worse Creators out there...
Kat: Much like Phi's rival, Malysses.
Risu: Exactly! That rotten Malysses...
Kenny: [Sighs...] I've handled my fair share of betrayal in my days... 'Course, you know, it didn't include a bunch of worlds... only my own.
Risu: What was it like, Kenny...?
Kenny: ...It was hell.
Risu: ...[Gulps.] Oh...
Kenny: It was war. It's over now.
Kat: You're a veteran of war then?
Kenny: Tch, heh. I'm all hardened up from the war, you could say.
Kat: ...Hm, and those two you were with... were Eclipses much like yourself?
Kenny: [Nods.] They are. Now, they're a little different.
Kat: I could tell.
Risu: You were all so different from each other...
Kenny: True, but we're all friends and stuff... Fantasy's got some variety. Lots of worlds to see, pretty much none of which I've seen. It's a big place.
Risu: Variety... My brothers and I love variety... We love creating so many different looking things...
Kenny: 'That so? Hell, that explains Cree.
Risu: [Giggles.] Yeah~!
Kat: Cree is still a marvel to Phi and myself. I give Pachi my applause for being capable of someone so unique to the Siblings. The idea of his structure resembles Pikachu, Risu.
Risu: It does, it does! That's why I can't wait until they meet.
Kenny: Hmm... [He looks into the sky.] So many new faces to meet... Other Eclipses and all... Why's that fascinate me...? Making relations with people sucks... They just die...
Risu: Whoa, Kenny! That's what making friends is about! Making friends is a good thing! Your friends are the people who stand by your side no matter what. They help you, you help them, they keep life full of fun and adventure, Creator or creation~!
Kenny: [Smirks.] ...I wish I could think as simply as that...
Risu: W-wait, whats that supposed to mean?!
Kenny: Your thoughts aren't tainted by explosive war, mass genocide, dying faces... You're mind is simpler, though no less efficient.
Risu: Oh... w-well... For the record, I have seen dying faces... I have been in what may not be explosive war, but war... and I have seen plentiful death... Don't let my cute appearance fool you, the Siblings have been through much.
Kat: It's true. These three have been to hell and back. And for this to happen to them is pushing that even further.
Kenny: And then...
[The two stare speechless at Kenny.]
Kenny: When the war ended... Darkness cast its shadow throughout Fantasy... and Reality... this realm. They sent us to Earth... they destroyed Earth... So many faces I once knew have rotted... [He clenches his fists.] And he... that Idi... a sworn Scailian... how many did he really kill? What is his story? Is his heart pure...?
Risu: ...I guess you really have been through a lot too...
Kenny: [He looks over at the Creator.] Listen, Risu... I knew... I know a person who was said to be incredibly merciless and cruel, someone who had a reputation for sin... but they were wrong... The time came, and he came to the Light...
Risu: What are you saying?
Kenny: This person's heart and mind... might have been swayed.. controlled... leaving a shell of uncertainty behind... Damn, listen to me. I sound like a therapist. 'Point is, Darkness is a scary thing... You don't really know their part in this rebellion, do you?
Kat: ...Now that you mention it...
Risu: What did they do?
Kenny: They're making the rebels work for them. Maybe Conception is so evil that they enjoy having Darkness as bosses or something, or maybe they're scared inside. Again, I don't know their beef with Pachi, but Risu... if it's what you say... Conception's gotta have a soft spot for their Creator somewhere. Darkness it the real enemy here.
Risu: ...There's still a chance that Conception isn't trying to hurt Pachi...?
Kenny: Maybe, maybe not. Maybe they want to destroy him... or maybe there's one or two or three strong members of the rebellion that are thinking that this is for the greater good... so that Darkness doesn't hurt anyone here...
Kat: And if they intended to harm him all along?
Kenny: Then... there has to be one good apple in there...
Risu: Kenny... are you sure?
Kenny: Positive.
...
...
...
[As they reach the treeline, they reunite with Group 4, who has left earlier but taken the same path.]
...
[Cree... a unique individual...]
...
[Theory... a unique nature...]
...
[Conception... a unique evil...]
...
...
...
[Now, all groups have reached their destinations. Now they must continue deeper into the forest to regroup at Pachi's house, ridding the Creator's home of any Conception rebels or Nightmares they see... though, the beings of Theory have yet to see a Nightmare.]
...
-Crystal Forest.-

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, each of those three unique things set the stage for this entire part, really. xD
This is taking forever not because it's a break, but because it's not planned out like most of the other things for Sync 2. It fits, sure (I guess), but I don't have notes for it, thus I'm writing whatever comes to my mind! xD
Glad you guys are reading it though. =3
