The First Cross:
The Crystalline Genesis

...
"Supernova needs you..."
...
"We... need you..."
...
[Wax-Wan is standing in front of the church, which has collapsed. Only the wall with the symbolic stained glass remains. In the darkness of night, Wax-Wan emits a gentle yet strong light to brighten the surroundings... In the time they were gone, the school has been ravaged. Buildings are torn down, as well as trees thrown everywhere. Lights flicker, electricity crackles, fire burns. The area has been destroyed.]
...
[Everyone finds themselves before Wax-Wan, looking around. Pachi is unconscious. Cruce is on his last breath.]
...
Grovyle: ...[He frantically observes his surroundings.] Wh-where is this?! What happened here!?
Riolu: By the Light... [He faces the school.] ...This is...
Cruce: [Watching his school burn...] ...The school... We... we left... and Darkness... Darkness went right under our noses!! [He drops to the snow, yelling into it.] Daaammmit!!!
...
Wax-Wan: ...No...
[Grovyle and Riolu face Wax-Wan.]
Riolu: Wax-Wan... how did we get here...? Could you tell us what happened?
Wax-Wan: I can. [He nods.] Mewtwo... was but a distraction. While he was being dealt with, the higher Darkness came to claim the Time Gears that I believe were here...
Grovyle: Mewtwo was a distraction...? He needed to be stopped, no?
Wax-Wan: He did.
Riolu: Yes, for the sake of a Time Gear and a Phaze. That is too important to disregard.
Wax-Wan: Lowers his head.] Yes... But I fear the outcome of this successful plan will be far worse than the loss of I... and one Time Gear... versus an Ancient Growth, a Phaze, and three Time Gears.
Grovyle: Mmrgh... Now that you mention it...
Riolu: ...[He stares at the flames.] ...Do you think everyone made it out safely?
Wax-Wan: It's difficult to say... Hm... [He closes his eyes, holding up the Time Gear. It hums...] ... [...He lowers his arm and opens his eyes.] ...There is hope... For the Time Gears are calling. They reside in that direction. [He turns and points in the direction of the Aphotic Tower... I anticipated Darkness to take the Time Gear to the Ancient Growth, which is in the opposite direction as this.
Cruce: [He lifts his head a little.] ...S-so... there's a chance... everyone c-can... be alright?
Wax-Wan: There is. We must have faith. We simply must...
...
Grovyle: In this catastrophe... [He faces Wax-Wan.] That may be the only thing to do.
Cruce: We... w-we have to act... [Stands slowly.] We have to try... ...Wax-Wan... is Pachi going to be okay?
Wax-Wan: I... I... cannot say... Cruce... how does it feel in your heart?
Cruce: ... My heart... I feel... like it's broken... like something is leaving me... Something... I can't live... without...
...
Wax-Wan: ...I am sorry... but... 'Tis the fragility... [He looks to Pachi.] of an Eclipse. I tried... to restore him.
Cruce: God... it's all my fault... If I didn't rush you, you would've had more time to heal Pachi... All of this... it's my fault! I'm supposed to protect him, but all I can do is get angry and blow up after he's been injured! Ahhhh!! [Shakes his head, slamming it into the snow.] ... [He sniffles, lifting his head a little.] And now... Because I left my position... Darkness could be screwing all of our friends over... they could be working for Darkness right now and it's all my goddamn fault!
Wax-Wan ...Do not blame yourself alone... Cruce... the Phazes are at fault... We hesitated to act out of caution on this world... We were far too concerned with the well being of this planet... thus we lost the race against Darkness.
Grovyle: I should have stayed behind to watch the encampment.
Riolu: And I should have let everyone know what the gravity of the situation was... It is not your fault alone, Cruce.
Wax-Wan: You are not alone... Do not feel regret. You must fight to end this. We must fight together if we want to see a brighter future.
...
"Do you want to fight for that?"
...
"Do you want to bring about the end of this Darkness?"
...
Cruce: ...[He stands slowly, looking into Wax-Wan's eyes.]
...
"We have no other choice... There's no turning back. From now on, this is a one way trip."
...
"Straight to hell."
...
...
...
[A few moments pass as Wax-Wan uses his temporal telepathy to locate the other Time Gears; one of which seems to be in a very peculiar place. The other three are together. He is preparing to take the group there...]
...
[The group gathers around Wax-Wan.]
...
Wax-Wan: Are you three ready? [His body glows brighter.]
...
[Grovyle and Riolu nod.]
...
Cruce: [He looks back at the body of Pachi, which will be left behind in the center of the church.] ...(I'm sorry... Voice in my head: Pachi... for this world to be your grave... I... I will avenge you, Pachi. I'll avenge Chronic... for you... ...I'm glad I got to meet you, but... I will forever regret not having the chance... to say goodbye.) Ready.
...
[They are gone...]
...
[Pachi is left in the church, the moonlight shining through the colored glass upon him.]
...
[The spirit of an Eclipse begins its ascension.]
