The Game by Chris S. Horn
A Final Fantasy
FanFic staring characters from
Final Fantasy IV, V, VI, VII and Chrono Trigger
Cecil Harvey looked up from the
throne of the kingdom Baron. He could have sworn he had heard
something. There, dancing in front of him, was a girl, barely in
her 20's laughing peacefully. And she was transparent.
"What in the...?" said a
guard. "Is anyone else seeing this?"
"Seeing whaaa..." Said
Rosa, looking up. The girl continued to dance around merrily,
like some sort of remnant of the past. "What's going on
here? Who is that?" queried Rosa.
"I don't know," said
Cecil. "But I'm gonna find out." Cecil then promptly
got out of his throne and walked toward the girl. When Cecil was
directly in front of the girl, she stopped, looked at him,
giggled, and then vanished. Cecil looked around dazed for a
moment before saying, "What's going on?"
Edgar Roni Figaro worked quietly
at his desk. He heard a knock at the door.
"Who is it?"
"It's me. Sabin. Can I come
in for a minute?"
"Yeah, the doors open."
Edgar was used to mid-day visits
from his brother, Sabin Rene Figaro, so he saw nothing strange
with the situation. Until he saw the look on Sabin's face.
"What's wrong?" Asked
"Well," replied Sabin,
"I know this is going to sound stupid, but... There have
been some reports of... um..."
"Get it out..."
"Well, there's been reports
of... 'Ghost Sightings'."
"Ghost Sightings? What kind
"Everybody is reporting the
same thing. An old man. Very old. Seems to be holding some kind
"Like something nobody's ever
seen before." Sabin looked a little flustered. Ever since he
was little, he could remember always feeling like he knew at
least a little about what was going on. Now he was completely
stumped. "Like something Dad would have had... Only a lot
"Well, we can't go around
chasing Ghosts all day..."
"Edgar, if you tell me that
you don't believe in ghosts, I'm gonna have to kill you. Ghosts
exist, believe you me. Remember? I was stuck on a train full of
Just then, a blinding light filled
the room. And then, it was over. But it left a man, in his left
hand was a gadget that neither brother recognized. In his right,
a screwdriver. He looked the brothers over, then nodded,
disapprovingly. Then the light returned again, and he was gone,
not without saying something first. "C... R... O... N...
"Crono?" Edgar said.
"What in the bloody crap is a Crono?"
Crono walked through Leene Square
with his friends, Marle and Lucca.
"...And that's when Mom came
back with the cat."
"I love that story,
Crono!" squealed Marle, in her best quasi-believable voice.
From behind Marle's head, Crono could see Lucca miming a gag.
"Well, Crono, that was a
lovely story. I liked it almost as much as I did the first time.
And the second. And just about every consecutive time." Said
"Well, I wouldn't tell it if
it wasn't constantly requested..." Marle looked over at
Lucca and gave an evil smile. But Lucca wasn't looking at Marle.
She was looking at the ground behind her. And then her jaw
dropped down to somewhere around her ankles.
"What in the world?"
said Lucca, walking past her friends. There was a
semi-transparent old man, with a thick white mustache and beard.
He sported a long purplish robe, and looked at Lucca square in
"Look harder." He said.
Lucca strained, but didn't see anything. "Harder..." he
pushed. "You'll see it..." He vanished in front of
Lucca, and Crono and Marle, who were now also looking, and behind
him, they saw... Nothing.
"That's it! That's what he
was telling us to look for! I can't believe I never saw that
before!" screamed Lucca, running to the spot where he once
"What? I don't see
anything." Said Marle, going to the spot Lucca was so
intently staring at.
"Well, of course you
wouldn't! You're not wearing my SuperSightGlasses! I've never
seen anything of this power!"
"What is it?" Said
Crono, now approaching the spot the ladies stood at.
"It's an incredible source of
power! It's very similar to the gates, in the sense that it seems
to lead somewhere, but the power it's letting off is SO MUCH
greater than the gates', that it hardly compares."
"You say it leads
somewhere..." said Crono. "Can we find out where?"
"Not without going in. And
I'm not even sure that we could go in. If I modified the Gate
key, we'd probably break through, but there's no way to find out
if we wouldn't be shredded by the power."
"I think we should try."
Said Marle. "Don't you think so, Crono?"
"Um... Yeah. Why not? We
survived the original gates, why shouldn't we survive these?
Lucca, enhance the gate key, and tell us as soon as you think
you've got it."
"Right. Just one more thing.
Who was that old man?"
Butz sat solemnly at the table
across from Leena, playing with his fork.
"I just don't get It."
"Don't worry, Butz."
said Leena. "Someday you'll get in there. It's just that, no
one is really familiar with you yet. When you come to America,
later this year, I'm sure everyone will love you."
"You really think so?"
"Yeah you'll be in fanfics
left and right."
"Wow! Thanks, Leena!"
Cloud walked up to the front of
the church. He had, of course, expected Barret and Tifa, but not
this. Everyone was there. Barret, Tifa, Reeve and his mechanical
cat, Cait Sith, Cid, Red XIII, Vincent, even Yuffie.
"Thanks, everybody. It means
a lot to me."
"Don't worry, Cloud."
said Tifa. "It means a lot to us, too. Aeris was a friend to
all of us. Do you really think we could forget the anniversary of
"No. I know I couldn't. Well,
are we ready?"
"We're ready if you
are." said Cid.
"Let's go in."
They opened the door to the church
slowly. On cold days like this one, Cloud sometimes thought he
saw Aeris' ghost standing above the flowers when he entered the
church. He didn't today. What he did see was a large warrior
standing on the flowers. Cloud's first thought was that he had
ruined Aeris' flowers. That thought was destroyed when Cloud
looked down at them, and saw that they were, indeed, growing
through his feet. In fact, the man seemed to be completely
"What in the hell?" said
Barret, putting all of their reactions into words.
"Do you know Terra?"
asked the man. "I've been looking desperately for her. I
haven't found her anywhere."
"Terra?" asked Reeve.
"Yes. Terra Branford. Do you
"No... I've never heard of a
Terra Branford." said Tifa. "Have any of you?"
General nods came from around the group.
"Oh." was all he said.
Then, he vanished.
"What in the hell?"
Barret repeated, putting all of their reactions into words.
Edgar was seated at the head of
the table in the meeting hall of the Returners. This had been
their first meeting since the defeat of Kefka, four years ago.
Everyone was a little confused when they heard there would be a
meeting, but they weren't going to argue. If nothing else, it
gave them a chance to see old friends.
"Order, Order!" said
Edgar. Immediately, everyone was hushed. "Now, I know that
this was unexpected. Frankly, I didn't expect a meeting this
weekend either. However, a situation has come up that I believe
requires our attention. There seems to be a ghost haunting Figaro
"A ghost?" said Mog.
"Is this some kind of joke? What do you take us for,
"You do not believe in
Ghosts, my good Moogle friend?" said Cyan. "Well, I've
met some ghosts, in a forest long ago. And if I'm not mistaken,
they didn't believe in Moogles." As usual, no one laughed at
Cyan's futile attempt at humor.
"This is serious,
everyone." said Edgar. "Sabin and I can both vouch for
the ghosts existence. We've both seen it. And... heard it."
"Heard it?" said Locke.
"What exactly did it say?"
"I believe it said,
'Crono.'" Sabin replied for Edgar.
"Crono?" asked Celes.
"Like, as in time?"
"I guess," said Edgar,
"but I seriously think this needs our attention. I think we
should all go to Figaro and check it out."
"You mean," said Setzer,
"it wont come to us?"
Then, as if on cue, the blinding
light cluttered the small cavern in the Sabil Mountain range,
and, out of no where, came the ghost. He said in his almost
mystical voice, "You wish to see me?"
"You're willing to talk to
us?" asked Terra, spellbound by the ghosts presence.
"Yes. Definitely. What do you
want to talk about?" replied the ghost.
"Well," said Locke,
"why are you here, Mr.... What is your name?"
"I am known as Balthasar. I
am an inventor. I am here to try to get the attention of a young
boy named Crono, who I trust. You see, the world is in great
peril, and I must tell him of it."
Edgar looked as if a light bulb
had suddenly grown over his head. "You mean, Crono is a
person? Maybe we can help you find him. What city does he live
in? Narshe? Figaro? Nikeah? Don't tell me its Doma..." Cyan
shot him a look that could have melted a small shield.
"No," said Balthasar.
"I've never heard of any of those cities. He's from a
village called Truce."
"Truce?" said Strago,
startlingly fast. "I don't suppose that I've ever heard of
that town... Nope. Never heard of it. Uh-uh. Nope."
"Strago," said Terra,
"you're lying. Tell us all you know."
"Was it that obvious? Well, I
guess it couldn't hurt anybody, anymore... Okay, I'll tell you
all about the event known as the 'Thamasa Encounter'. You see,
one of the Empire's head scientists had heard a rumor about
Thamasa's 'Magical powers.' Well, he thought that he could
combine the technology under his command and the magic under our
command, and make some kind of airship. Well, when it was
completed, he took three towns folk on the maiden voyage with
him, as crew. One was the Town Elder, one was my friend Gung-Ho,
and the other was me. When the crazy contraption finally got
started, it shot out these beams of light. They caused what the
man called a 'temporal vortex' to appear ahead of us. When we
came out of it, we were in a village called 'Truce.' It was a
small village, not very much to do. There was a forest, and on
the other side, was a large majestic castle. The scientist took
some readings of the air and soil, and then pushed us back in the
ship, and we took off. When we got back to Thamasa, the man asked
us to help him destroy the vessel. As we did it, he told us to
never tell anyone about that voyage. I don't suppose it would
hurt now. He was quite a few years older than I was, and I
imagine he would've kicked the bucket by now. So, that's my
"And no one's ever heard of
this?" said Edgar. "I find that a little hard to
"I don't." said
Balthasar. "Not only did he hit the details of Truce Castle
on the nose, but there was also a temporal disturbance close to
Truce Village in 975 AD. That was 27 years ago, wasn't it, old
"Old? Look at yourself!"
replied Strago. "But, yeah. It was EXACTLY 27 years
"Do you know how he made that
ship?" said Balthasar.
"Well, yeah, I know what he
did. I don't know exactly how he did it though..."
"I think I could improvise.
I'm pretty good at making warp ships myself."
"Warp ships?" asked
"Yes. They are ships that can
travel to places unattainable by man himself. The warp ship this
kind old man mentioned was a 'dimension ship.' It has the
capability to warp between dimensions. The one I made, during my
time, was a 'time ship.' It has the ability to transcend through
"So, why should we have to
make one?" asked Edgar.
"Well, if I'm not mistaken, a
ghost of your own dimension is probably in my dimension, trying
to warn you of the same crisis that I'm trying to warn Crono
"How would we get to work on
it?" asked Setzer.
"Simple. Using this elderly
muttered under his breath. "Well, if we really want to get
to work on it, according to my memory, we were in Thamasa. And I
think that was one of the important aspects. I think we should
move to Thamasa."
"Good." said Balthasar.
"To Thamasa then. What would we take to get over
"My airship." said
Setzer, immediately. "You can fill us in with any 'exciting'
details on the way."
"A ghost?" started Kain.
"You're trying to tell me that there was a ghost here? Who
do you take me for? Rydia?"
"Hey!" replied Rydia.
"I just think that we shouldn't discount Cecil's opinion
immediately. I mean, he's never steered us wrong before."
"Well, I saw it too."
said Rosa. "I'm not sure if it was a ghost, but if it
wasn't, it was some sort of other transparent creature surrounded
"Surrounded by flowers?"
asked Cecil. "I didn't see any flowers."
"Well, you just about stepped
in them. They were all around her feet. Maybe she was a gardener
"Or maybe all of you are just
going bloody psycho." interjected Kain. "This is
stupid. We're actually considering a ghost hunt."
"What's so stupid about it,
Mr. Bigshot?" said someone behind Kain.
screamed, turning around in his chair. "I'll show
you..." When he turned all the way around he saw behind
him... the wall. Well, not exactly the wall. Actually, he saw
through a young girl, to the wall.
"Who are you!" said
Cecil. It was more of a command than a question. Cecil was used
to command situations, and tended to lose his temper when he lost
"Well," replied the
'ghost.' "my name is Aeris Gainsborough. I've been 'sent
back' to tell a man named Cloud that the world is in danger. He's
the only one who can save it. Perhaps you've heard of him. His
name was Cloud Strife. He lived in Kalm, last time I
"Kalm?" said Edge.
"I've never heard of a village named Kalm."
"That means that the old man
was right. He told me that if I tried to travel back, that the
interference of the structural rift would cause me to catapult
into the wrong dimension."
"Old man? Which old
man?" asked Rydia.
"I don't know. He never told
me his name. Anyway, I have to find a way to get to my rightful
"Why?" asked Cecil.
"Couldn't we help you?"
"Well, thanks for the
proposal, but I'm afraid not. You see, I don't know how to fix it
from here. If I were in my dimension, I could guide you to it,
but I couldn't here. I'm sorry."
"So, how do we get you back
to your 'dimension'?" asked Kain.
"I don't know." replied
Aeris. "I truly don't know. Maybe a path will just open up
right in front of us..."
Lucca looked up from her bench.
"I've got it!" she screamed. She held up the Gate Key
Version II for Crono and Marle to see.
"Thats it?" said
Marle. "It doesnt look that much different from the
"Well, it is." Said
Lucca in defense. "And I would thank you not to criticize
it. Ive spent the last six hours working on this so that we
can go gallivanting into certain doom. Again. And all I get is
criticism. Well, maybe I should just take it apart
"No, Lucca. This looks
fine." Said Marle, suddenly feeling guilty. "The
question is: Will it work?"
"Of course it will
work." Said Lucca, once again defending her work. "Who
do you think youre dealing with?"
"Well then," said Crono,
"maybe we should go and try it out."
"Good. Lets do that.
Then maybe SOMEONE will stop harassing me about my good
work." Said Lucca, as she went to go get her gun.
"Do you really think
well need that?" asked Crono.
"Well, when you went through
that first time gate, werent you attacked by imps?"
"Okay, youve proved
youre point." Admitted Crono. "Marle, I think we
should go get our weapons, too."
Crono and Marle waited patiently
for Lucca to try to apply the new Gate Key.
"Are you done yet?"
asked Marle, impatiently.
"Yeah, I think so. Hold on a
minute." Replied Lucca. Just then, a bolt of energy swung
from the gate, knocking Lucca out cold. Then an explosion of
energy came out and enveloped the three. Crono and Marle
immediately recognized their surroundings. They were in a gate.
Lucca didnt recognize it. She was unconscious. The end of
the gate was approaching, Crono could tell, because of the sudden
increase of light. Then, they materialized onto a large table. In
the room surrounding them were a group of people, all of
different shapes, sizes, and colors, the ghost they had chatted
with before, and a female ghost, with some flowers.
"Who are all of you?"
asked a girl with green hair who was seated at the table.
"Let me guess." Said a
soldier in blue armor. "More Ghosts?"
"Shut up, Kain." Said
another man who seemed like he was in charge.
"Mrs. Gainsborough. A
pleasure to see you again." Said the ghost that Crono and
the gang were familiar with.
The girl in green gave out a
shriek. Then she began to cry out loud. Cronos first
thought was that she was horrified of the ghost, but upon closer
examination, they appeared to be tears of joy.
"Tellah?" said the man
"Hello, Cecil." Said the
ghost. "We dont have much time. First we must get
Aeris back to her dimension. Then we have to get these youngsters
back to their dimension. Then we have to confront Warlock, then
we have to
"Warlock?" asked the man
referred to as Cecil.
"Its a long story. We
must act quickly. First step: Awaken this young girl. She was
struck by a beam of energy from the dimension portal."
"No problem." Said a
woman with blond hair who was sitting next to Cecil. "Cure
3!" The air around the woman glowed a pale yellow. Then,
from everywhere, a glow of green energy surrounded Lucca. All of
a sudden, she woke up.
Lucca. "Where am I? Who are you? Crono! Whats going
"Good question." Said
"Well, Im Cecil."
Said Cecil. "This is my wife, Rosa, and my friends, Kain,
Rydia, and Edge. This transparent girl here is Aeris
Gainsborough, a ghost, and the man is
"Yes, Cecil, you sound
surprised." Said Tellah. "Didnt expect to see me
again after the incident at Zot? Well, Im back,
temporarily, and Im here to help."
"My name is Crono." Said
Crono. "These are my friends, Marle and Lucca. After Tellah
alerted us to the dimensional gate
"D-Warp." Said Lucca.
"Ive decided to call them D-Warps."
"Okay," continued Crono.
"After we were alerted of the D-Warp, we entered
it, which sent us here. To your table top."
"The problem is, the D-Warp
isnt here anymore." Said Lucca. "Its over
there. In that corner. Behind
Aeris, was it?" Aeris
simply nodded. "Well, I dont know how it moved over
there, but my guess is that they are highly unstable. The
D-Warps, that is. I think that we should learn more about them
before we try more travel."
"We havent got
time!" Aeris and Tellah said, almost simultaneously.
"We must stop him!" said
Tellah. "And to stop him, we have to play his game. And his
game is solve the puzzle."
"What type of puzzle?"
asked Cecil, finally getting over the fact that his dead friend
was now standing in front of him. On his dining room table.
"Wait." Said Cecil.
"First, tell us who Warlock is."
Tellah growled. "Warlock is
an annoying little demon who thrives on the confusion of others.
He loves setting up near impossible situations. Usually, if
someone doesnt solve Warlocks puzzle, in a limited
amount of time, they get killed. End of story. But not Aeris or
I. Or the other two ghosts. We just get the pleasure of going
back from whence we came. And you accompany us."
"The other two ghosts?"
"Yes." Said Aeris.
"In the dimension I come from is another ghost. In that
ghosts dimension is a ghost from Cronos
"So," asked Cecil.
"Whats the game?"
"Thats the point."
Said Tellah. "Until all of the ghosts are reunited with
their proper dimension, we dont even get to know what the
"Or who gets to play."
"In other words," said
Tellah. "We have to go in that portal. Warlock created the
portals. All of the portals lead to somewhere that we have to go
in order to beat the game."
Lucca. "Well enter the warp. But if were spread
throughout miscellaneous regions of the galaxy, dont blame
me. I tried to warn you."
And thats who
Warlock is." Finished Balthasar.
"Yeah, great story,"
said Setzer, finishing up the new Dimension Ship. "But would
you like to help me with this?"
"Youre almost done,
Setzer." Said Balthasar. Edgar had filled him in with
everyones names on the ride to Thamasa. "All
youve got to do is plug in the trilithium canister. Here.
You take it. Youve made the rest of the ship. I
couldnt help, now."
Edgar noticed that Balthasar was
starting to become less and less transparent the more he was
socializing with them. "Balthasar." He said. "I
cant see through you as well anymore. Do you think that
its the time limit that this Warlock placed on us kicking
"Yes, most probably."
Replied Balthasar. "Either that, or all the time Im
spending with you guys is sort of breathing life back into me.
Im not sure."
"Okay," said Setzer.
"I think were ready to fire this baby up and do some
dimension traveling. All aboard!" Setzer, after four years
of deep depression, suddenly felt as if he had a purpose in life
again. Once again, he was piloting through the skies.
"Were ready for take off!"
"Good." Balthasar said.
"Theres only one problem. We dont know how to
aim it for the correct dimension."
borders keep us in the right dimensions?" asked
"I dont know."
Replied Balthasar. "You see, right now, Im as clue
less as all of you."
"Oh, well thats
reassuring." Said Setzer. "Prepare for lift off!"
Just then, the big ships motors started turning, and smoke came
from the engines, and then, they were off of the ground.
"Fire up the Dimensional Converter!" screamed Setzer,
over the roar of the engines. Balthasar took the handle that
would release the trilithium-carbon gas, and pulled it open all
of the way. A blue gas came from the back of the new airship,
and, instead of falling into a trace of the ships course, the gas
jumped in front of the ship, as Balthasar had guessed, and
created a temporal rift. The ship was hurled into a blueish
nebula of energy that was unbridled. Setzer screamed like a small
school girl at the speed and intensity of the ships current
condition. The crew, consisting of Edgar, Sabin, Terra, Setzer,
Strago, and Balthasar all held tight throughout the journey. But
the rift was almost over and they could see a light at the
Cloud Strife was having problems
concentrating on the memory of his dead friend, Aeris. It
wasnt that he didnt care about her, it was just that
he was having such a strange day, that he found it impossible to
think about much else. First, all of his friends showed up out of
no where, which didnt bother him. That was a pleasant
surprise. Then there was the invisible knight. He hasnt
been seen from since, but everybody (but Yuffie) admitted that
they had seen him. There was suddenly something going on.
"This day couldnt possibly get more
" said Cloud quietly. He looked up at the
center of the temple, where Aeris flowers were, and saw
something strange forming. It was ten people. On top of
Aeris flowers. No, not ten people. Eight people. And two
more ghosts. Cloud stood up, apparently the first to notice the
newcomers. But one of the ghosts happened to notice him. And her
name was Aeris Gainsborough.
"Aeris?" Said Cloud, as
if trying to make her existence more real. At this point, all of
the others were looking up to see what Cloud was talking about,
and, needless to say, they saw her too. "Aeris is that
you?" asked Cloud.
"Yes, Cloud, now shut
up." Said Aeris. "We dont have much time."
"Yes," said an old man,
who also happened to be a ghost. "Our time is most
definitely running out."
The ten newcomers all moved away
from the flowers into the center of the church. As they started
to make introductions, a large object started to appear above
their heads. As they noticed it coming into reality, everyone
moved to the outside edges of the room in panic. It was needless
panic, though, because the ship remained hovering in thin air.
For about four more seconds. The large ship crashed to the ground
in a major explosion, however, all of the inhabitants survived.
As they crawled out, a look of astonishment came to Luccas
"Balthasar? The Guru,
Balthasar?" asked Lucca.
"Yes," said Balthasar.
"We havent got much time."
"Well," said a man who
was on the ship, who looked like some sort of overdressed foreign
dignitary. "We havent much time for introductions, so
Ill make this quick. Im King Edgar, this is my
brother Sabin, and these are our friends, Strago, Setzer, and
Just then another ghost appeared.
This was the ghost that had visited Cloud before.
"Terra?" it said.
"General Leo?" asked
Terra, a little shocked.
"Yes, its me. We
havent got much time."
"So weve heard."
Said another King looking person.
The introductions were made very
quickly, and Cloud learned that this second King was named Cecil.
A kid named Crono had introduced himself and his friends. Cecil
had introduced his group, and Cloud introduced his own friends.
At the moment that everyone was trying to figure out what was
going on, a strange man in a black cloak appeared. We was wearing
jet black pants and shirt with a blood red vest, covered by the
"Warlock!" said Tellah.
screeched the man, in a British accent that sounded as if the
user had acquired it by watching old Dick Van Dyke movies.
"I see youve all been acquainted. Thats always
good. You see, youre going to be divided into some rather
strange groups. And not all of you are going to play. Those of
you who arent
Youll be the bait."
Suddenly, Edge, Yuffie, Vincent, Red XIII, and Reeve (and his
Cait Sith doll) all appeared next to Warlock in a glowing purple
bubble. "The rest of you will be divided into groups, and
all given separate missions. At the end, you should meet each
other, and then you can get your friends back, and Ill free
you of the maze, and everything will be just like normal."
"Wow!" said Warlock.
"Very good! Youll definitely be a player. Normal is
how everything was before I
interfered. Well, everyone to
starting positions!" Warlock said, and with a snap, everyone
disappeared from the temple. Warlocks voice came ringing
through everyones ears. "Good luck! Youll need
Aeris awoke with a start. Which
really surprised Aeris, seeing as how she hasnt woken up at
all in the last couple of years. In fact, she hasnt slept
at all in the last few years. She couldnt have. Shes
been dead. But now, as she looks down at herself, she sees
herself as very much alive. For the first time in years, she
cant see through her feet. This information alone was
enough to make her throw a small, silent party for herself.
Unfortunately, it wasnt silent enough, for everyone else in
the room woke up.
" said Sabin.
Sabin doesnt like to get up. Being woken up is definitely
on his bad list. Fortunately for Aeris, Sabin was too
befuddled by his new found surroundings to worry about such a
"Where are we, Aeris?"
Asked Cecil. "You know more about the situation than we
dont." replied Aeris. "Right now, Im in the
same boat youre in." and then silently she added,
the living boat.
"Aeris?" Tifa said,
waking up. "Aeris, is that you?" Asked Tifa.
"Yeah, Tifa, its
"Aeris, I had this horrible
dream. You had died, and we had stopped Sephiroth, and Everyone
had met for the anniversary of your death when this weird guy
"Tifa, stop right there, hon,
because that wasnt a dream."
Suddenly, Tifa sprang up out of
her cot, and looked around. Of course, Aeris was right. Those
weird people who had popped out of thin air were there with Aeris
and Tifa. Tifa groaned silently and sunk back into the pillow
before springing up. "Aeris!" She said.
"Youre not a ghost anymore! Youre not
transparent! Youre alive!"
"No, Tifa. Warlock brought me
back to the life for the game. Afterward, Ill be as dead as
I ever was."
" Tifa sunk
back down into the pillow yet again when she sat back up. Slowly,
this time. "Aeris, do you recognize where we are?"
Aeris looked around. She looked
confused for a moment, then it donned on her. "Were in
a cell at the security section of the Shinra building!"
"Right." Said Tifa.
"But the Shinra building was destroyed quite a while ago.
The fact that were here is impossible."
"No, Tifa. The fact that
Im here is impossible."
Tifa and Aeris let that sink in
for a moment. Tifa looked around the room to see who was with
her. Cecil, the King of somewhere Tifa had never heard of, Sabin,
some other kings brother, Aeris, her once dead friend, and
Lucca, the inventor girl, who was still asleep. Correction. Was
Lucca, getting up off of the floor. "Where are we?"
"You just missed that part of
the conversation." Said Tifa.
"Well, thats okay,
cause I was there, and I didnt understand it
anyway." Said Sabin.
"What exactly is the
Shinra Building?" Asked Cecil.
Aeris. "Shinra is a power company, that had goals of taking
over the world. Of course, theyre plans were thwarted, by a
man named Sephiroth. He was a madman, though, and tried to take
out everybody else at the same time. We appear to be in a cell in
the Shinra Headquarters security wing. We found a way out of here
before, we can do it again."
"Correction:" said Tifa.
"Sephiroth found us a way out. We just used it."
Then the doors to the cell opened.
On the other side was a man, in black and silver armor, with long
gray hair and a longer sword. He looked at Sabin in the eyes,
raised his sword, and swung it at Sabins neck. Sabin, being
a martial arts master, wouldnt take that kink of treatment,
and promptly jumped out of the way.
Tifa looked wide eyed at the man.
Sephiroth?!?" Tifa struggled out before
giving a horrendous shriek, that, if it didnt hurt
Sephiroth severely, it definitely deafened him for eternity. I
did just about the same for everyone else in the room.
"Sefa who?" Asked Lucca,
still trying to figure everything out.
"I dont care who he
is," said Sabin, "but if hes gonna try to kill
me, Im gonna hit him with a Blitz!" At that time,
Sabin jumped forward and used just about every martial arts move
he had ever been taught on the man he now knew as Sephiroth.
Tifa, finally recovering from the initial shock, joined with
Sabin and used some of her own brand of martial arts.
While Tifa and Sabin were
pummeling him, Lucca pulled out a gun and shot him squarely in
the face. Needless to say, that can be pretty painful. Unless, of
course, you happen to be Sephiroth. Sephiroth flinched as if all
of the painful treatment were merely a bee sting. Cecil, never to
be left out, pulled out his sword and used any spare moment to
hit Sephiroth across the chest. Aeris, as if just recovering from
a bad day-dream, suddenly looked up and saw what was going on. As
if she had merely forgotten to before, Aeris screamed out the
word "Holy" and a giant stream of white dust came down
from the ceiling and sprayed at Sephiroth, causing him to fall
down. Sabin, never to be outdone, continued to beat the body,
until Aeris said, "Okay, enough all ready, hes
dead!" Tifa walked over and checked, and, sure enough, he
was dead. Strange, Tifa thought, that Aeris should kill
Lucca turned to Aeris and said,
"If you had the power to do that the entire time, why
didnt you do it a minute ago?"
Aeris looked down, confused, then
said, "I dont know. The sudden effect of being put
face to face with my murderer just
triggered something. I
just started seeing red and had thoughts of vengeance running
through my head. Im sorry."
"Dont worry about
it." Said Cecil, naturally taking control of the situation,
which was definitely not in his control. "Anyone would, I
suppose. Not that Ive ever been murdered."
"Anyway," Tifa said,
"shall we attempt to find a way out?"
"Yes." Replied Aeris.
"Definitely. Now, the first time we were here, I remember
there being some vehicles on the first floor. I think we should
The five headed down the stairs
for 60 floors, until Lucca came up with the bright idea that they
could hot wire the elevator system to ride down the rest of the
way. After the quick conflict Cecil had with the morality of hot
wiring someone elses elevator, the five rode down to the
first floor. As expected, they found the motorcycle, which none
of them knew how to drive, and the pick up.
"Ill drive." Said
Tifa, approaching the truck.
"A woman driver?" Said
Sabin. "Just who do you think you are?
"Youre obviously not
married." Cecil said under his breath.
"Well, bigshot, do you know
how to drive it?" Asked Tifa. "No? Well, I do.
Well get much farther, if we know what we are doing."
"Which we dont
anyway." Retorted Sabin.
"That doesnt matter. At
least well find out faster."
"Will you two stop
arguing?" Asked Aeris.
"Okay, fine." Said
Sabin. "But Im not getting into a car with a woman
Moments later, the group headed
for the truck, with Tifa at the wheel.
Edgar tried politely not to awaken
the others. He had been looking around their chamber for a while
now, trying to decipher where they were at. He looked up as he
heard a noise from the group. It was Cloud waking up.
"Huh?" Said Cloud
"Where are we?"
"I dont know."
Replied Edgar. "We appear to be in some kind of cavern.
Theres two exits to our room, here. One heading north, the
other heading south. I wasnt going to travel either way
until everyone else woke up. Right outside the south leading door
are a group of fish. They dont seem very happy."
"Fish?" Asked Cloud.
"Yeah. Giant Fish. Unfriendly
"And youre afraid of
fish?" The voice came from behind Edgar, which he
didnt expect, seeing as how Cloud was directly ahead of
him. After jumping roughly 6 feet in the air, Edgar recognized
the voice, and promptly spun around to give Setzer a good tongue
"What in the crap did you
think you were doing!" It was more of a pointless statement
than a question, because, as the smile on Setzers face told
him, Setzer knew exactly what he was doing. He was scaring the
heebie-jeebies out of Edgar.
Edgars sudden outrage
promptly woke up the other two inhabitants of the small, but well
lit, cavern. The girl, whos name eluded Edgar, looked
around quickly, trying to reorient herself. The old man, Tellah,
looked to his left and right quickly, seeing all of his
companions, his surroundings, and the possible exits.
"Rydia." Tellah said.
"Do you know where we are?"
"No." Said the girl, who
Edgar still had a hard time pronouncing her name. "I just
woke up, too. I have no idea where we are."
"You should." Said
Tellah. "Youve been here before. The is the cavern
north of Kaipo. Where we first met. I know it was long ago, but I
dont think youve forgotten it."
"Are you sure?" Asked
Rydia. "I remember it being much larger
"Well, of course you
do." Replied Tellah. "You were very young."
"Okay," Said Edgar.
"Now that you know where we are, why dont you share
that information with us? I mean, Ive been looking around
for the last hour, and I still dont know where to go."
"Well," said Tellah,
"thats because youve never been here before. We
have. The exits to the north, and if Im not mistaken,
there should be an OctoMammoth waiting there for us."
"An OctoMammoth?" asked
Setzer. "Let me guess. Were supposed to kill this
"Yeah." Replied Rydia.
"But if my memory serves me correctly, that shouldnt
be a problem."
Warlock." Said Tellah. "He would usually place a near
impossible obstacle in front of us. Not something simple like an
"Well," said Cloud,
"maybe he likes us. Maybe hes giving us an easy route
Thats when the lights went
sake!" screamed Tellah, apparently annoyed.
"Sight!" screamed Tellah, the a glow of white energy
surrounded Tellah, then the cavern was filled with light. Again.
When the lights came back on, they had been joined been some
unpleasant company. Specifically, Edgars Unfriendly Giant
Fish. And, upon closer observation, they were also unhappy.
"Watch out!" Screamed
Rydia. "Lit 3!" Large bolts of lightning feel from the
ceiling, electrocuting the fish. Then, the fish evaporated.
"That was weird." Said
Edgar, staring at the spot where the fish once were.
"No," said Rydia,
"it was magic."
"I know that it was
magic," replied Edgar, "what was weird was that they
just sort of evaporated. Didnt you find that weird?"
"No, not entirely." Said
Tellah. "You see, anything is possible, right now. Warlock
wouldnt have us tripping over fish bodies. That would
extend his game time. And Warlocks impatient."
"So, Tellah." Said
Cloud. "Tell us more about this Warlock."
"Okay." Said Tellah.
"Warlock is an omnipotent being. He can do what he wants,
when he wants. And he usually does. What he wants right now is
entertainment. And were supplying it for him."
"So, where just pawns in his
game?" Asked Setzer. "I dont think I like that
position. Were gonna have to teach this Warlock that he
cant mess with us like that."
"Agreed." Said Cloud.
"So, how would we get out of here?"
"Wed head north, if
Im not mistaken." Replied Tellah.
The group headed north, with minor
interruptions from some more unfriendly fish. But, ultimately,
found their destination in a waterfall, that Tellah had said
contained the exit.
"Now," Tellah said,
"if Im not mistaken, that waterfall also contains an
"Well, then," said
Setzer, "Why dont we take it on?"
They all entered the waterfall
when eight huge tentacles surrounded them. And pushed them
skyward. They landed on a small ledge, which neither Rydia nor
Tellah knew existed. In fact, it might have not existed. On the
ledge, was a man in a long purple cloak. Rydia scowled as she saw
" she said.
"What are you doing here." It was not a question, but a
demand, which was strange coming from the lips of Rydia. Zemus,
as usual, didnt talk much. In fact, right now, he
didnt talk at all. He merely grabbed a staff and used it to
hurl a small magical ball at Rydia, pinning her to the ground.
Edgar couldnt handle that. No one was going to attack his
companions, regardless if he could pronounce their names or not.
He reached into his Big Bag O Stuff™ and pulled out
his Chainsaw. He then proceeded to use it to hack at the side of
Zemus. Setzer must have come to a similar conclusion about
Zemus attack on Rydia, because he had pulled out one of his
decks of razor cards and promptly hurled some at Zemus
face. The attack was continued by Cloud, who used his sword to
lash at Zemus. Tellah mainly stayed in the back, but attacked
none the less with a barrage of spells. When Rydia got up, she
summoned the Knights of the Round Table, who quickly finished off
Zemus. And, like the fish before him, Zemus vanished.
"Well," said Tellah,
"if we go down to the waterfall, we should get to the
So, the group jumped down into the
water, and headed for the exit.
Rosa and Terra had been up for a
while, discussing how they could get out of here. Terra had told
Rosa about General Leo, one of their fellow inhabitants of the
small mountainside. Terra had immediately recognized where they
were at, and informed Rosa of their location. Their companions,
Leo, Barret, and Crono, were not yet awake. Feeling that they
should continue on, Rosa and Terra started to wake up their
companions, though they were especially careful with Barret,
because, even though they didnt know what it was, the thing
on his arm looked rather dangerous. With all five of them awake,
they started to plot on how to get out, and win the
"I know this place."
Said General Leo. "This is the cave of the Espers, by
"Espers?" asked Rosa.
"Dont worry about
it." Answered Terra.
"I think that if we retrace
our steps, go in the same path that we did the first time, we
should accomplish our mission." Said Leo.
Everyone silently agreed (Except
for Barret. He freely told everyone that he didnt trust
them, and that he was only going along because he didnt
know where he was at.), and followed Leo to the heart of the
mountain. Inside were some Espers, who Terra and Leo remembered
as being friendly, and after meeting them, the group should go to
Thamasa. Unfortunately, the Espers werent quite as friendly
as they were remembered. They immediately attacked the group,
with no warning. A Bahamut type Esper started
spitting his flames wildly at the group. Being intelligent human
beings, they ran out of the path of the flame. Barret, not one to
be attacked, pulled up his cannon and started firing at the
Espers. Despite popular belief, Espers are not a peace loving
race. When they saw Barrets cannon, they attacked. Harshly.
Some took a defensive approach, healing others. Others went for a
straight out attack. Rosa stood in the back of her teammates and
healed those who were hurt, and using the spell of
white whenever possible. Barret just started firing
aimlessly toward the general vicinity of the Espers. Leo
shocked the Espers, while keeping a some what
defensive stance. Terra went for an all out attack, using what
ever magic she still had, as well as her sword. Crono struck the
monsters with continuous lightening and his sword. Before long,
all of the Espers were defeated.
"Well, that was
strange." Said Terra. "Espers are supposed to welcome
peace, but those Espers attacked us."
"At any rate," said Leo,
"lets get back to Thamasa."
As the group approached Thamasa,
there was no one there. No one but one severely twisted man. And
his name was Kefka. He didnt let out his horrible horse
laugh as they approached, which Terra was thankful for. However,
he did raise his hands in the air, and from his fingertips came
white beams of energy. And they were directed toward Terra. Terra
was knocked down briefly, but she quickly got back up. Leo seemed
covered in rage, and struck at Kefka with all that he had. Kefka,
of course, fell down dead, as anyone would do under Leos
started, "was too easy."
"Dont you be going and
complainin about in bein easy, stupid." Said
Barret. "We got an easy path, and I rather appreciated
With that they left the town.
"So, what do you propose we
do, old man?" Asked Kain, just waking up. Apparently,
everyone else had already been awake, so Kain felt a little
defensive, but made a clear point not to show it. He didnt
know any of the people in the room with him. He didnt pay
attention during the introduction period, because he hadnt
seen much point to it. Now he did, but that do much good.
"Well," said Balthasar,
"I think we should get out of here. Marle should know the
"I should?" Asked Marle.
"Yes. Youve been here
before, we havent. Wheres the exit?"
I dont know.
In fact, Im not really sure of where we are."
"Yes you are." Said
Balthasar. "You just dont remember it. This was where
you and your friends met Lavos. This is 1999 AD, before you and
your friends saved time."
remember there being a way out
Oh yeah! The Epoch!
Thats our way out. It should be over here." Marle
said, leading them to a patch in the forest. Strago was the first
to follow them. Kain and Cid stayed in the back, as if cautious
to the others actions.
"So," asked Cid,
"who are you?"
Highwind." Replied Kain. "Leader of the Dragoons of
Baron. And who are you?"
"Im Cid Highwind."
Said Cid. "A pilot. Did you say your name was
"Yeah. You did too. How
" said Kain, quickly losing interest in the
topic. Cid went forward following the group. Kain followed too.
He wanted to make sure he was in the back. He glanced back
quickly to make sure they werent leaving anyone when he
noticed a giant porcupine like creature. "Hey, guys! You
might want to check this out!" Kain said, looking only at
the creature, and ignoring the fact that all of his companions
were at his backside.
"Lavos!" squealed Marle.
"Well," said Cid,
"were killing it, right"
"Yes." Said Balthasar.
"Were killing it."
Kain and Cid simultaneously
performed a Dragoon Jump at the head of Lavos, which confused the
both of them to a great degree. Marle used whatever power she
could muster to hurl bolts of ice at Lavos head. Strago
tried to use whatever magic he had left. Balthasar, however,
stayed in the back. Not being much of a fighter, there
wasnt much he could do.
Lavos, strangely enough, was no
problem what so ever. After the quick defeat of his head, the
large shell seemed to evaporate.
"Huh?" asked Marle.
"I remember him being much, MUCH, harder than
However, the rest of the group saw
no problem in the ease of their task, and continued on to the
Aeris, Tifa, Sabin, Lucca, and
Cecil boarded a truck sitting on display at the front of the
Shinra Building. Strangely enough, when all of the inhabitants
were aboard, the truck started itself. It went onward without the
consent of Tifa, who was in the drivers seat. This didnt
really surprise any of them; after the day they had led, not much
would surprise them. Tifa merely tried to steer, which was a
futile attempt, the car didnt like her steering. The truck
went where it wanted, which just happened to be the front of the
building, and it went through the window. The passengers
didnt complain too much (except for Sabin, who was
profusely complaining about Tifas bad driving), even though
they received minor injury from the broken glass. The thing that
they were most focused on, was the large blinding light in front
of them. As the truck entered the light, the five passengers
disappeared from the truck. Which was okay, seeing as how a
moment later, the truck hit the ground and promptly exploded.
Tellah and Rydia led Cloud, Edgar,
and Setzer to the waterfall. Little communication spread between
the group as the headed toward their final destination. The
waterfall seemed strangely brighter to Rydia, which didnt
bother her, seeing as how this was an imaginary world anyway. The
brightness did bother Setzer, however, for he was complaining
rather loudly. After a good flogging from Edgar, he was rather
quiet, actually, but the group didnt think anything of it.
Until they looked at the sight he was gawking at. The large
glowing white light at the other side of the waterfall was
blinding, to say the least. However, with the day they were
having, the group saw nothing wrong with entering the light. So
Terra and Leo had opted that the
group would stay in Thamasa for a while. Despite sudden
frustration from Barret, who didnt want to sit around on
his lazy butt, the group did stay and rest. With their
"scenario" completed, they felt that they didnt
have much to worry about. Besides, that hideous glowing light at
the end of town didnt seem too welcoming. The group decided
to stay put. And they did. Unfortunately, the glowing light
didnt like that decision. The light had already decided
that they were done, and they were going to enter the light. So,
it chased them. Leo and Terra were the first to be caught by the
light, followed by Crono and Rosa. Barret felt the need to run,
and he did, for a short while, until the light had him trapped up
against a house. Barret then decided that it would be a rather
smart idea to shoot the light. Being an amorphous glow of energy,
the light didnt mind Barrets sudden attack very much.
However, the light took the chance and swallowed Barret. The
group, unwillingly, had entered the light.
The Epoch seemed to be glowing
with a supernatural light. It was more than any of them had ever
seen. However, they had decided that it was just showing them
that it was their goal.
"We have a problem
" said Marle. "There are five of us, and the
Epoch only seats four
"Well, two of us could sit on
the wings." Suggested Cid.
Balthasar, looking rather confused. "The Epoch doesnt
have wings. It is a time pod. Flight on the Epoch would be
Marle. "We, um, sort of had wings put on there. It flies
"I dont know if
thats quite safe
" replied Balthasar.
"Sure it is!" Exclaimed
Marle "Thats how we used it for quite a while. Come
on, its perfectly safe."
So, the group decided to use the
Epoch as their method of completion of the mission. But this
started the debate of which people got to ride inside.
"I will." Said Marle,
jumping into the cockpit. Once inside, she vanished.
Balthasar. "This isnt right at all."
Strago. "It probably is. This is probably just how we
complete our scenario."
Agreeing with Strago, the
remaining four entered the Epoch, and subsequently vanished.
Twenty people suddenly popped out
of nowhere. Aeris, Balthasar, Barret, Cecil, Cid, Cloud, Crono,
Edgar, Kain, Leo, Lucca, Marle, Rosa, Rydia, Sabin, Setzer,
Strago, Tellah, Terra, and Tifa all appeared in some sort of
large crypt. At the other end, were their friends, the bait,
trapped in the same large bubble. In the center of the room was a
man in all black, with a red vest and a pitch black cloak. And he
was clapping. It was a sarcastic applause, they could tell by the
expression on his face.
"Bravo." Warlock said.
"Youve deciphered my ever so challenging games. I hope
you enjoyed it. I didnt. You already knew what you were
doing. I should have grouped you differently. Oh well. My gaffe.
You know, you were of no entertainment value what so ever. Of
course, I havent lost hope yet. You could still entertain
me to a great degree. Say, you all know how to fight
dont you fight each other? That would be rather
entertaining indeed! Of course, you wouldnt do that
willingly, and Id have to force you to do it, so it would
be as if I were entertaining myself. I know! You could fight me!
I wouldnt lose, and I would stop our little game after a
while, without killing any of you
No. It would be
pointless. Ill tell you what. If you can find a way to
entertain me, not only will I let your friends go, but Ill
put all of you in your own dimensions. Deal?"
"No." said Edgar.
"No deal. That wasnt part of the bargain. You said
that if we finished your little challenge, then we were free to
go. So put us back."
Warlock laughed a hideous ugly
laugh. "You dont get it, do you, little man? I
dont have to follow your rules. Hell, I dont have to
follow my rules. I do what I like, when I like, and I can do
that, because Im omnipotent."
"Youre also smug, and
intolerable." Said Aeris.
"And annoying." Said
"Oh, Im so hurt."
Replied Warlock, in his most smug, intolerable, annoying, and
sarcastic voice. "Youre harsh words are going to hurt
me to the greatest extent. I dont know what Im going
"Youre going to shut
up." The voice came from behind him, which he didnt
expect. The one who said it was a man who was even uglier than
Warlock himself. He was dressed in all black, much like Warlock,
but didnt sport the vest or cloak. "Youre going
to come back home and youre going to leave these poor
"Oh, but Wizardyne!"
Warlock pleaded in a voice even more annoying than before.
"I didnt HURT them, I was only playing with them.
Besides, I made the bosses of their little quests so
simplistic and the least annoying that I could."
matter." Wizardyne replied. He had a half New York, half Los
Angeles accent that was almost, but not quite, as annoying as
Warlocks. "The treaty of Magenicitine says that we
arent even supposed to interact with humans. Not live ones,
anyway. And whats this? You brought dead humans back to
life? Thats giving the humans false hope. They dont
know that a revived human could only stay alive for a few
hours." The last statement brought a tear to the eye of
Aeris. Her second life seemed to be shorter than her first. The
sage Tellah was taking it like a man, as was General
Leo. Balthasar merely nodded as if he already knew the news.
"I should punish you severely for your actions."
Continued Wizardyne. "And I am definitely going to tell your
"But Wizardyne!" Warlock
squealed once more, before the two vanished. This sent a sense of
confusion through out the group of heroes. Cloud looked over at
Aeris, as she looked back. But even now, she was already turning
a little more transparent. At that moment, the being known as
Wizardyne reappeared in front of them.
"I am sorry for
Warlocks actions." Began Wizardyne. "He was
acting of his own will, and should have known better. I will
correct any problems that he caused." With that, Wizardyne
raised his left arm, and the group in the bubble were returned to
their comrades. "Im afraid that your dead will have to
return to that state. I could do it now, it will be less
"Yeah." Said Aeris.
"Itll probably be better that way."
Wizardyne raised his right arm,
and the dead were dead once again. "Once again, Im
sorry." Said Wizardyne. "I will now transport you back
to your respective realms. If you need anything else, feel free
to ask. Right now, I am at your dispense."
"No." said Cloud.
"Sending us home will be repayment enough."
Wizardyne looked a little puzzled.
He had never known what it was like to have enough.
But, with frank acceptance, he snapped his fingers, and the group
of twenty-one Final Fantasy alumni all vanished.
Crono, Marle and Lucca all
appeared in Leene Square, very close to where they had left from.
Lucca immediately ran to the spot where the D-Warp was to see if
it still existed. It, in fact, did not. They decided to keep
their adventure to themselves, and go on with life as usual. As
they walked out of Leene Square, Marle jumped out ahead of the
group, stared Lucca in the face, and asked Crono, ever so
politely: "Will you tell me the story of when you got your
cat back, Crono?" And with a groan from Lucca, and a
pleasant laugh from Crono, the three decided the life had indeed
returned to normal, and the newest adventure was over.
Cloud and his seven friends looked
forlornly at the flowers that their friend, Aeris Gainsborough,
had planted at this church ever so long ago.
"To your memory." Said
Cloud, and the rest of the group raised their glasses in
agreement. The group spent the rest of the day, not in mourning,
but in celebration, for, one way or the other, the group had been
reformed. For the briefest time, even Aeris had rejoined them.
The eight decided that every year they should meet, not just in
memory of Aeris, but also in the spirit of friendship.
Edgar was having a horribly hard
time believing that the ship which stood in front of them
actually traveled through the dimensional barrier. The main
reason for this was that the ship was now smaller than his head.
He looked at it, and looked at it, but couldnt figure out
how he and his friends had boarded the vessel and rode it through
the dimensional rift. He didnt have to understand that,
however, the thing that he had to understand was that Setzer, a
grown man, was playing with the miniature ship.
Screamed Setzer, thrusting the ship through the air. He was, of
course, getting strange looks from his comrades. That didnt
bother him. He was having fun. And if he learned one thing in all
of these adventures, it was that you never know when its
going to end, so have fun while you can. However, under a
completely different motto of If he can get away with it, I
can, Sabin joined Setzer. This was the singular most
idiotic thing that Edgar had ever seen in his entire life. So, he
joined them. As did Locke. And Mog. And eventually, everyone
joined, in the spirit of having fun.
Cecil was very happy to be at
home. With the mess finally over, he felt much more
relieved. He and Rosa returned to the throne of Baron. Rydia
returned to the cave of monsters. Kain returned to his post as
the chief Dragoon of Baron. And everyone was happy. Except for
the chief guard of Baron, who, as always, was posted at the end
of the throne room, so he could guard the king. But he still
didnt know who the transparent girl was that was in there
the other day. And he couldnt get an explanation out of
anyone. Rydia had left too soon, and Kain, as always, played his
rank card, telling the guard to return to his post. Whenever he
would ask the King or Queen about it, they just turned to each
other and laughed. With major frustration, he merely ignored the
subject, and stayed at his post.
"There, you see?" Asked
Leena. "You probably didnt want to be in that fanfic
"I guess youre
right." Replied Butz. "The plot was a bit shallow, and
the over-crowdation of characters was simply annoying. My
addition would have further ruined it. Thanks, Leena!"
"Dont mention it."
