So here we are with the second saga. =3

As you might know, the sagas don't focus on Fantasy, but the troubles forming on Earth, essentially. Each saga has a different setting, though they all begin where this whole thing started, which is around the Circle's home. The Circle will be seen more as well. The sagas are likely to introduce V in its entirety. We didn't get to see it much in the first saga, but I promise there's a good chance we'll see more than the log in menu. The sagas, with their inclusion of V, are very likely to have original characters from other sources. Sure, a counterexample would be the previously seen Pokémon. (Which rightfully belong to their franchise. I have no possession over most of those characters or "concept", as it would be more appropriate.)

This is also where the whole idea of a superhero enters the story. What do I mean by that? ...Well, I'm not sure yet myself. We'll have to see as I write spontaneously. ._.

SO LET'S GO~

...
[Many days passed since the previous collision of worlds. Everything that has happened seems to be unremembered by anyone other than Topher or Cruce. It is for this reason that they have decided to keep quiet about it to keep any suspicion away. Cruce, however, continues the mention of this phenomenon to his psychiatrist, Mrs. Studer.]
...
[The voices continue inside of Cruce's head, but he is incapable of speaking back to them, as they are too difficult to understand. The voices are different from before. No longer does it sound like Pachi or Nuvis, now, of course, Nuvlora...]
...
[But how do we know? The strange occurrence following the defeat of Nuvaaya brought time back to a place before the collision occurred, then flowed freely as if this did not happen. Do the faces of Fantasy remember this? Light and Darkness? Are they all still alive? Many questions are asked between Cruce and Topher daily, yet it seems impossible to truly find the answers...]
...
[One thing they do know is that they are still in possession of their powers, which does, in fact, endanger them and everyone else around them. The two remain capable of summoning the mystifying "cross-blades". They, however, even keep that a secret to themselves alone. Something they share between each other is the odd ability to change into their Chronic or Safan forms at any time they please. Little do they know it's going to heavily impact the near future...]
...
[It is December 15, 2199. Winter break is around the corner, and with it a planned vacation. Cruce and Topher await this eagerly, but first must finish this week of school before transitioning into winter break. Topher, more nervous than actually excited, now attends the school considering he has moved in with Cruce and his family. The real reason for this is due to constant troubles and harassment at his old school in Oklahoma. It reached a point of physical abuse. In addition, Topher's parents simply could not fix this "weakness" of his. Quite difficult on Topher, they sent him to live with his aunt: Janet Maximilius.]
...
[Unfortunately, they cannot remember the bonds that the collision strengthened... But they are still alive.]
...
[With the previous mayhem close behind them, Cruce and Topher now hold an unbreakable bond with one another. They stand together, ready to face any challenge... But for now, those challenges are more down to Earth.]

The Saga Continues:
For the Children

...
...
[Morning.]
...
Cruce: ...[He lays on his side, facing the wall.] ... [He seems to be bothered by something, possibly a dream.] ...
...
"(Are you...)"
...
"(Are you the one...?)"
...
Cruce: ...[A sensation fills his body, and suddenly he is awake.] Y-yes... [His eyes shoot open, but he barely moves.] ...Hello...? ...[He turns to his other side, then notices that he is in bed with another. His cousin, Topher, lays on his side facing off of the bed. He is curled up in a cozy sleep.] ...Oh, right...
...
[After idling a moment to wake up, Cruce sits up, checking the time on his digital clock. It reads 6:33 AM. The sun is barely rising... After watching the minutes change on his clock, Cruce looks down at his cousin.]
...
Cruce: [He smiles.] (Hm... We really need to invest on somewhere else for you to sleep, Tophs. 'Look pretty cramped up... but cute, I'll admit.) [He strokes Topher's shoulder softly.] (Hm... Still early... probably another forty-five minutes until we gotta get up...) [Cruce lays back down, this time on his side facing Topher.] (Weird dream... But I guess it's to be expected. I'm never gonna predict what it's about though. New voices and all... Pretty confusing. 'Wonder if Tophs is having the same dream.) ...
...
"Hello...?"
...
Cruce: [Again, Cruce sits up, looking around his room suspiciously.] ...
...
[The voice sounded to him like a naive young girl's.]
...
Cruce: (I can't tell... who is that? Is that a little girl?) I can hear you...
...
"Y--...--ear me?"
...
Cruce: Y-yes! I'm here! Please, speak to me!
...
"--re you... --ne we've been l--ing for?"
...
Cruce: [Cruce pieces this together quickly.] The one you're looking for? I-I am! Well, I might be... what's your name?
...
"My... -urn... I--... n hear y--..."
...
Cruce: [Cruce pounds on his head with his palm a bit.] (God, why can't I hear these things clearly?) Listen, I know it's hard to understand me, but try! This is important. I might be the one you're looking for if... if you're an Eclipse.
...
"I--...--lipse! Ar--... ..."
...
[The voice has vanished.]
...
Cruce: ...Damn... Gone...
Topher: Mmrrgh... Cruce... are you talking to somebody...? You know I'm right here...
Cruce: [Looks down to Topher, who is now laying on his back and staring up at Cruce.] O-oh, sorry Tophs. Listen, since you're the only other one who can understand... I heard another voice trying to call out to me.
Topher: [His eyes widen a little. He sits up, rubbing his eyes.] A voice...? What'd it sound like?
Cruce: ...It sounded like a girl... ...Sounded like you.
Topher: Oh, thanks.
Cruce: [Chuckles, patting Topher's back.]
Topher: [Smirks at Cruce.] You love my voice. You know it~. You totally think it's cute.
Cruce: Dude, everything about you is cute. This is coming from a straight guy, so don't ever let me catch you complaining about your looks, 'kay?
Topher: Aww, is it that wrong to complain? [Leans against Cruce.] Isn't that cute too?
Cruce: [Raises an eyebrow.] What part of "straight" didn't you understand? [He chuckles a little, shaking his head and pushing Topher's shoulder gently.]
Topher: [Giggles, turning so that his legs hang off of the bed. He stands, stretching his arms out.] Why'd ya wake me up so early...?
Cruce: Hey, go whine to the voices in my head. [Scratches the back of his head.] ...How'd you sleep? You looked kinda cramped up.
Topher: It was cozy! Really, I love to curl up, so this amount of space is fine by me... Cruce, you're so warm, you know?
Cruce: [Blushes.] Straight.
Topher: ...This is fun. You're fun.
Cruce: Glad you think so. [He stands and ruffles Topher's hair.] A'ight, I know you need time to get ready and fix your hair and make-up and all. Go ahead and grab the bathroom first.
Topher: Make--Hey! [Gently slaps his arm.] ...Only for certain occasions...
Cruce: What, your first day at my school's not a "certain occasion"?
Topher: [He lowers his head and blushes.] ...Well...
Cruce: Aw, you know I'm only kidding. [He wraps one arm around his cousin, smirking.]
Topher: [Sighs, giggling softly.] ...I bet you wanna see me all "dolled" up.
Cruce: Thanks for putting that in my head... I bet my sister would love to see that. She loves the heck outta you already. Mom, too. You're like a Lego, you just fit.
Topher: [Looks up at Cruce with a puzzled expression.] ...?
Cruce: ...Go take your shower. [Shakes his head, letting go of Topher.]
Topher: Alright! Be back whenever!
Cruce: [Smiles as Topher leaves his room, almost hurrying to do so it seems.] ... [He sits back down on the edge of his bed, head in one palm.] (...Ahh... so, was that another Eclipse...? 'Never heard that one before... Wonder what they're like. Pachi was pretty sweet, and Nuvlora was cool... Heh... so much for relationships. Saf and I kissed, but... if it's the same on their world, they probably don't remember any of this... Damn, I never got to show them my little comics... Yeah... Wow... I never knew Pokémon had to do with some divine order of things. What a silly concept. Pokémon... seeing 'em outside of V's so weird... It's gonna be tough for Topher and I at a Catholic school after witnessing what happened and being the only ones who remember. Better stay quiet... not like anyone'll believe us... unless we transform. Better keep that secret too.) ... [He shakes his head, looking back up at the clock.] All so surreal. Did I do all that...? Was I really fighting...? ...Hm...
...
[About thirty minutes later, Topher is still in the restroom. Cruce is taking the liberty of laying out his clothes for him, as well as his own. He has also bought Topher a black school jacket for a reason he has yet to explain.]
...
Cruce: [Now sitting in his desk chair, watching the TV attached to the wall.] ...(God, that boy takes forever. Maybe he really is dollin' up... He... had a lot of stuff... I do know he's a tad on the gay side... Man, I hope he doesn't get too much crap from the kids at school. I don't think he will. And if he does... Boy, someone's gonna answer to my fists.)
...
[A knock on Cruce's door.]
Cruce: Come on in.
[His mother opens the door, Topher standing behind her in a white bathrobe with pink designs.]
Janet: You boys woke up early. [She notices the clothes on the bed.] Looks like you're feeling peppy today, Honey.
Cruce: Eh. [Shrugs.] Might as well. I've got some things to explain to Tophs.
Janet: Alright, well... I'll let you two get ready. Come out for breakfast when you're done getting dressed.
Topher: [Smiles warmly at her as she turns and moves back to let her through. He enters the room, removing the coiled towel for his hair.]
Cruce: [Staring at Topher.] ...
Topher: [Notices this.] ...W...What?
Cruce: ...Dude... Are you sure you're not a girl?
Topher: [He begins undoing the bathrobe.]
Cruce: !! To--
[Topher's bathrobe falls around him... he is wearing underwear, however.] ... [He smirks, his hands on his hips.]
Cruce: [Having looked away, he feels forced to look at Topher.] ...Oh... Tricky boy. Okay, that's enough proof. I don't see boobs. You're a dude. Kinda. We're good. [He notices Topher's underwear is actually panties. He buries his face in his palms.] You're killing me.
Topher: [He giggles.] So! I was thinking about your room design and...
Cruce: (Good God...)
Topher: I think the walls should be a little more colorful! There's just not enough flair to this room, Crucie. We need to give it a little more pizazz!
Cruce: ...Did you just call me "Crucie"?
Topher: Yep! Heh, I'm kidding~. Now, it looks like you were a sweetums and laid out my clothes... Oh... [He looks over the clothing.] Right, it's a uniform.
Cruce: Yeah. [He stands, walking next to Topher.] Alright, so, the black jacket's probably not something you'd normally wear, but it's a symbol of what's called the Circle. You'll hear Black Jacket Brigade, but that's not the right name. Just people callin' us that.
Topher: The... Circle...? I think I heard your friends talking about that once.
Cruce: Right! It's them. We're all one group of friends just trying to make it through school together. And Tophs? I want'cha to join.
Topher: ...[Looks at Cruce.] ...Do I gotta sign up for it?
Cruce: Nope. I just gave you membership. All you need is that jacket.
Topher: [He looks back down at the clothes.] Hehe... thanks Cruce... I'm nervous, but... I'm glad you're making this easier on me.
Cruce: Hey, I'm right with you. I won't let anything happen, not that it's gonna.
Topher: ...[He smiles at Cruce, who is looking down at the clothes with his arms crossed... He gives Cruce a kiss on the cheek.]
Cruce: ...[Closes his eyes.] ...Straight... Buuuut, I'll let that one slide. [Chuckles.]
Topher: Oh come on, you've kissed a guy on the lips!
Cruce: [He walks to the door.] Hey, Danielle was a girl as we kissed, man. I can't control when someone freakin' turns into a boy as we're kissing! [He laughs.] I'm gonna take the shower if there's any hot water left. Be back in a few miscellaneous units of time. [He walks out the room and to the bathroom.]
...
Topher: [He begins putting the school uniform on, leaving the jacket last. He toys with his collar a bit. He is used to dressing nicely, but not this formally for school.] ... (Cruce's done a lot to make my first day go well, but I'm still shaky... I know his friends are nice, and I kinda know what to expect... but... Mmgh... Gotta get through it, I guess!) [He puts the jacket on, adjusting it and walking out to the hallway. A mirror reveals how he looks. He turns a little, observing this new look.] Hm... [Topher walks into the kitchen where Janet has a bowl of cereal prepared for him.] Oh... Thank you, Miss Maximilius.
Janet: [Tending to Topher's lunch.] Of course, Honey. I know you probably want to eat breakfast. With Cruce, it's difficult getting him to eat this early.
Topher: He gets sick real easily, I heard.
Janet: He does. It's caused him to miss a lot of school.
Topher: [He sits down at the table.] Do you think he's lactose intolerant?
Janet: Maybe. He does have a tendency to feel a little strange after drinking milk, but he's fine with cheese.
Topher: Oh. Milk's pretty tough to digest in any case. Maybe he just needs more fiber.
Janet: He does. He rarely eats vegetables.
Topher: I'll get him to! [Giggles.]
Jane: You're too sweet, Topher. I'm so glad you and Cruce get along.
Topher: Heh, I remember when we were younger... he wasn't the nicest to me, but I'm happy he's gotten to like me a little more. I always looked up to him...
[As the two talk, Cruce walks into the kitchen. He is dressed in ready in a fraction of time it takes Topher to get ready.]
Cruce: That's how you do it.
Topher: [Waves his hand forward at Cruce.] Oh, shush. [He smiles at his cousin before standing, finished with his cereal.] How do you not get hungry during the day?
Cruce: I do, but that's what lunch is for. Speaking of which, you got it ready, Mom?
Janet: All here. I assume you want the usual?
Cruce: Yep. [He snaps his fingers, pointing at Janet.] Nice work.
[Cruce is handed his lunch. Topher seems to be staring at Cruce's clothing. He is wearing the same jacket.]
Janet: Are you boys ready?
Topher: Mhmm. [He places the bowl in the sink, filling it with water and letting it sit. He walks to Cruce's side.] Oh, let me get my stuff real quick.
Cruce: Yeah, you might want to leave with your backpack. Generally a good idea.
Topher: Glad you agree! [He runs off to his and Cruce's room.]
Cruce: [Chuckles to himself.] ...
Janet: How do you like him?
Cruce: [Turns to his mother at this odd question.] Hmm...? ...Oh, well... He's a nice guy. A little flowery, but nice.
Janet: I'm glad. You're lucky to have such a cute little cousin. And he's lucky to have you to look out for him.
Cruce: [He nods.] I feel like more of a brother to him, honestly...
[Topher returns, ready to go. He seems to be a bit shaky, however.]
...
[And Cruce notices this when they enter the car.]
...
[The cousins sit in the backseat. As Cruce buckles in, he notices one of Topher's hands near the buckle. It is shaking a little. He looks up to Topher, who is frowning. He couldn't look more worried.]
...
Cruce: [He moves his arm around the headrest and over Topher's shoulder.]
Topher: [Looks at him, smiling. He leans against Cruce, still a little shaky.]
Cruce: [Rubs his shoulder softly...] (Poor guy... He's shaking he's so scared...) [He whispers into Topher's ear.] Everything's going to be okay... I promise.
Topher: [He nods a little, sitting up and forcing his expression to change into anything more confident than what it is now.]
Janet: Is everything alright? [The car pulls out of the driveway.]
Topher: [Again, he nods.] Yeah... [He smiles at Cruce.]
...
...
...
[They arrive at the school.]
