    Default Dragonball M, Chapter 3: In Blood, Bone, and Ash! The Way Forward Unlocked!

    Zurvan opens the RoSaT again.

    ďThe next timeline awaits.Ē

    Eva meanwhile seems to be in a conversation with Ashaírah about something, the guardian seemingly more animated and more intent than the former goddess.

    It appeared that it was time for the next step of this gathering quest, which would cut down the amount of those whom he could interrogate. Suppressing his true nature, scales melted back into pale human flesh, save for patches beneath the boy's clothing. It was beneath the Strongest to have to hide his presence amongst weaklings, but he had not the patience to put up with their prattlings, at least, not without eating one of them.

    "What awaits us on the other side?" He, or rather, "Charco" said as he approached the quickly gathering ensemble.

    "Alright, Sasheem's going this time!" The Majin yawned, hopping to his feet, having taken a quick nap. "Be grateful he's takin' time out of his busy schedule to lend a helping hand. Sasheem knows you jabronis would be lost without him."

    "Fitting that you'd wait for the easiest mission by far before offering your 'help'," Parsley remarked. "Gods forbid you put forth any real effort."

    Karine and Aleka had arrived on the gathering group of who was going to go, though the younger woman had a pensive air about her. When Aleka asked about it, she really didn't get much of anything so was fine with letting it drop for now.

    "Since I'm more then a bit out of the loop, what should we watch out for in this time line?" Karine asked the time deity. Knowledge was power, especially in cases like these.

    "If we're lucky, it'll be the timeline where the trees are made of gold, and the water tastes like wine." Held replied between a bite of his apple, "But then again, given how these things play out, I suppose I should settle for a decayed world that isn't made of rotting posion or what have you."

    "Sasheem wasn't even around for the other missions," he shrugged. "He was too busy cleaning up the humans' cities for 'em. Maybe if you or your sister ask nicely, Sasheem will clean up those Saiyan worlds as well," the Majin smirked.

    There was no denying how excited Sarada was, when she began to explain how she'd become a Super Saiyan.

    And despite her mood, the surge of positive emotions across their shared connection was enough to turn up the corners of Ishtar's mouth. It was after all a wonderful thing, the sharing in the happiness of one you cared for. Though to say the words she used to express what happened were a hurried jumble was perhaps an understatement. The golden-eyed Oni needed to actually focus intently to piece together what was being said.

    Which itself seemed to be ... unsurprisingly perhaps, that she'd done so as the result of a fight.

    Not just any fight it seemed, however. In a similar fashion to what Asha'rah had done -- managed with far less stupidity, at the least -- this alternate version of Totoma had forced a scenario where Sarada had to imagine the death of everyone she loved, and cared for ... sufficient motivation by any measure. So it was that in thee feelings of failure to prevent that, that her Little Love had found the means to clear that final hurdle; and do what no more than a handful of other Saiyans had managed prior: attain the Super Saiyan Form. Though it seemed she realized quickly, that the legends hardly matched the reality. At least when it came to the increase in power, though it seemed the hair color, and eye color that Vocado himself had displayed during the visit in the White-Gold Room was a shared trait of the transformation. A thing to keep in mind for later, perhaps ...

    For now however, congratulations were in order.

    Turning so that she could look her lover fully in the face then, Ishtar offered Sarada a small smile and a soft kiss. "How absolutely wonderful ... I am so very, very proud of you; and more than a little aroused, admittedly." Taking several moments to hold Sarada close, and simply find comfort in her happiness and warmth; it was then that the golden-eyed Oni eventually worked her way around to answering the questions Sarada had ended her recounting on.

    "I do not feel much different, no. Though since it was unsealed, I have not attempted to utilize it ... the Hakai. As for being 'stronger' ... I am not sure. What do you feel ?"
    Sarada beamed at the congratulations and leaned into the kiss. "Thanks," she said, the single word somehow radiating with all the excitement she was feeling inside. "I can hardly wait to start training so I can get stronger."

    Maiz was going to flip her lid when she saw that Sarada that finally transformed. She couldn't wait to see the proud look on her face. ...She couldn't wait to see her period. It had been over a week since she had been home, and slightly longer since she had seen anyone for longer than a few minutes. Maybe I'll head home before the final mission and brief everyone on what's been going on so far. I would just stay, but they'll need me to fight Ishtar's alternate.

    Briefing, and taking a nap. It was going to feel so good sleeping in her own bed again. Well, sleeping period, honestly.

    "As for you... you definitely feel stronger. And you feel more harmonized, if that makes any sense. Of course, there's only one way to find out for sure how strong you've gotten."

    Parsley wasted no time in rejecting him. "I'll speak for you and say no. Though, I will admit that it's a fine change that you've made in yourself. I suppose finally realizing how pitiful you are at a Destroyer left no other options other than Savior. Lucky for this planet, I would say."

    “I believe Ochazuke was escorting Pike for this one.” Zurvan mentions.

    “It will be the easiest, most likely. Elder Nail of Pike’s tribe has access to the nexus point. It should just be a matter of going there and asking for it.”

    He snorted in amusement, "I doubt it will be that easy... it never is."

    He shakes his head.

    “I can’t say I’m sorry enough. I can only move forward and help you stop him from doing this again.”
    Standing face to face with the wizard, Ochazuke surveyed him with narrowing eyes. Along with Koolard, he was one of the last left standing at the battle of Capital City. Though the Armada of the First Race may have entered Earth's atmosphere across Time, it was Pike who spread them across the planet's surface. From a single point, with a gesture he could go anywhere in an instant.

    How ironic that the Doctor had shackled him so.

    Yet the difference between him and the elemental Pyrus was in the additional matter he carried with him. Where one Earth's champion simply sought to return home, there was some matter the Wizard held yet unspoken.

    "If you could strike back at the Doctor, I imagine you would have," he said. It would be easy enough to cross the space, if Pike could have returned; even simpler to escape if his method could avail him.

    Yet only now was he able to move freely.

    "He promised you spells for a reason, I suppose soon enough we shall see why," he shrugged. "But let me be clear. You're not guiding swarms of artificial drones today."

    Like the others, he supposed the Namekian Wizard would fight for his way home, no matter the cost. Still, Ochazuke tilt his head to the side in a soft gesture to those gathered near the portal.

    "Their lives are not expendable."

    OOC: Carried over from the previous thread.

Standing now to Charco's side, the paper calling for succession lay before them, edges fraying in the cold air of the chamber.

    "I imagine it takes a great deal of strength to gnaw on carrion so persistently," he said "To suck dry memory to the marrows."

    Spoken aloud, the disdain was evident. As Ochazuke came closer, the atmosphere appeared much same as it had been nearly eighty years past; fallen under four other pairs of watchful eyes.

    The difference between then and now was plain. At this moment there were as of yet two who might choose to listen. Setting yourself upon that fearful path will be your death.

    "Nothing less than glorious, the discarded laurels of the fallen." A familiar stern gaze narrowed where he looked down upon the young man. "Yet you've never shied away from confrontation. No matter the cost, heedless of the outcome."

    That was the point of the martial discipline, to become more than you were yesterday. But standing before the summit of great forbearers, even the smallest figment cast a long shadow. To see a thing for what it truly was, that was a difficult thing.

    "You said it yourself, she did not know. You do. So tell me, what are you afraid of, Charco?"
    "It's because I do know," He answered, "A second pair of eyes endlessly watching me, waiting for the moment I show an ounce of weakness before seizing control. Each time, I can feel my sense of self disappearing."

    At first, the spirit required his permission... or maybe that was to lull him into a false sense of security, to make him believe that Rex was his ally.

    "I was taught how to be strong in mind and body, but I never thought I would have to fight for my soul."

    Regaining control upon the end of their battle with Luop and Koolard had left him a broken mess, briefly untethered to reality as the erosion of his spirit had left him with an unfathomable feeling of hollowness that had frightened him.

    "...It's a scary feeling, but I can't sit back and let it consume me. That is why I want to pick up where Penhuoqi left off."

    Perhaps the boy was being desperate, having only recently swept up the broken pieces of his former dream and now faced with the very real possibility that his soul could be corrupted, but he knew just how powerful could be when fighting for a cause, any cause.

    After some debate, Dash and Cyanna decided to use Rock-Paper-Scissors to choose the next traveler. And of course Cyanna wins the matchup.

    Taking her place among those gathered by the portal, she smiles and waves to the others before getting ready to step through.

    Sasheems's face twitched a bit, but the smirk remained. "That's right. Better s-....savior than this sorry buncha slobs," he managed to utter eventually, contempt barely hidden in his voice.
