The Forgotten One - Part II

You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

The Forgotten One - Part II

Postby Kommander Ken » Sat Mar 04, 2017 3:49 pm

(suggested reading)


Image

“Hey! Hey wake up, dude! C'mon wake up!"





Image

A gray-cloaked minifig awoke to find himself in a vaguely familiar place with an unfamiliar face grinning down at him.

“Oh finally you’re awake!" exclaimed the unfamiliar minifigure, "I was wondering when I would meet one of you guys."





Image

Quantumsurfer Ken propped himself up with a startled expression, hands inching toward the hilt of his sword. “What do you mean ‘one of you guys’?”





Image

“A Quantumsurfer! That’s what you are, right? I can tell!”

“Well… that’s what everyone’s calling me these days," replied Ken a little uncertainly, "Wait, how can you tell?”





Image

“Because I’m a Quantumsurfer too! I just earned my spark not too long ago!”

“Ah… new guy eh?” Ken observed.





Image

“Yep! And this little slice of the Brikverse here is mine too!”





Image

“It’s not a lot right now, but pretty soon I’m gonna fill it up with all kinds of cool creations!”

“Nice,” commented Ken.





Image

“Everyone’s gonna love it! I’m so excited to get things built and join in on all kinds of cool stuff!"





Image

"That's great bud," Ken responded with a wink, "and it's great to see a new face around here."





Image

"So... do you have a name?"

"Uhh..." The stranger gave him a blank look.




Image

"I already told you my name."

"You did? I don't recall at all, friend."

"Yeah," the stranger said, "that was like the first thing I told you."





Image

"Huh that's weird," Ken muttered before his eyes seemed to glaze over and he turned away from the other Quantumsurfer.





Image

"Aw man how did I get here? Another teleportation mishap?" He seemed to have completely forgotten there was someone else nearby.





Image

"Uh... excuse me?" A voice called out from behind Ken, who stopped in his tracks. "Is this some kind of joke or something?"






Image

"This is like some weird Quantumsurfer initiation right?"





Image

"Oh crap, heyo! I didn't realize there was someone else here. I'm Ken, who are you?"






Image

"Wait, you're serious. You don't remember meeting me?" The strangely armored minifig's frown deepened and an expression of utter bemusement befell him.

"Afraid not," answered Ken. He felt just as confused, but offered a nervous smile regardless. "Hey that's a neat trick by the way."

"Neat trick? What're you talking about?"

"Your limbs look like they're fading or something," Ken pointed out.

"Wait, wha-"





Image

As if on cue, a flash of violet energy erupted around the stranger and enveloped him in what looked like some form of fire.





Image

The unfortunate minifig's facial features seemed to morph and twist until only the basic features were left. What only remained were two beady eyes and a mouth held agape in horror and pain. He screamed a blood-curdling horrible cry as he tried to swing away at the energy consuming him, but to no avail.





Image

Only a matter of seconds later and the rest of his physical features faded away, either melted by the flames or simply devoured by them. Only the silhouette remained.





Image

The minifig's body finally collapsed. No further movements or sounds followed. Nothing.





Image

Ken watched as the body lost all solidity and melt into the ground like a puddle of black water.





Image

And then... nothing.





Image

As if he had no recollection of what horror he just witnessed, Ken turned on his heel and peered around him coyly. "Hey, how did I end up here again?"





Image

He spun around at the sudden sound of something ripping apart behind him. It sounded like a piece of paper ripping itself apart, only a hundred times deeper-pitched.





Image

A swirling vortex appeared several inches above the ground in the same ominous hues of purple.





Image

"Oh man that doesn't look good," mumbled Ken.





Image

The vortex suddenly opened even wider, violet tendrils of dark energy licking out of it at all sides.

"Okay," commented Ken, "that looks even worse."






Image

The warp shimmered and sparkled in an alluring pace. Mesmerized, Ken almost wanted to approach it, but his uncertainty kept him rooted in place. All the while the anomaly glowed brighter and brighter. Something was coming, Ken was sure of it.





Image

He wasn't wrong.

The portal birthed a cloaked figure, glowering eyes fixated on Ken. The Quantumsurfer froze as their eyes locked, he knew what this presence was.





Image

"Oh shit..."





Image

The mysterious figure took shape as it inched its way out of the vortex like a terrifying butterfly leaving it's cocoon. As it's body began to take shape, as did the golden color of its form.





Image

And there it hovered above the gleaming floor, surrounded by an aura of ancient and unspeakable power. Though it's eyes were hidden under the helm of gold, Ken could tell its gaze of malice was still trained on him. Unintelligible whispers permeated around them, but the hooded figure said nothing more.





Image

"So we meet again," Ken stared back and hardly winced, "huh, QuantumStalker?"

Ken draws his sword and smirks at the QuantumStalker, “so you say, creep. But I’ve learned a few tricks since we last fought.”






Image

Image

“What the hell,” Ken gripped his sword and he felt trickles of energy overtake his gaze, “is that what you want? My powers?"






Image

Image

“So you hunt us?” Ken’s eyes narrowed as he stared at the Stalker. “…How come no one’s ever gone looking for the ones you... took? If you’ve really taken that many them. Someone would've noticed...”






Image

The QuantumStalker seemed to laugh. It was a raspy, low-pitched chuckle. Without so much as a twitch to give itself away, the horror darted toward Ken.






Image

In an instant, Ken could feel his powers surface once more. His ebony blade morphed and he threw it up to parry the QuantumStalker's blow, just barely in time.

“͜A S̨u̸rf̛er’͜s b͝i̵g̀gest f̴ear͝:̛

"So you make us... forget them?" Ken realized in horror.

Image

"Well..."

The QuantumStalker maneuvers it's tendrils of dark energy and swings them toward Ken's side, who jumps up to avoid them just in time.






Image

"That's not going to happen!"






Image

"Not..."






Image

"TO ME!"

(Had to divide Part II in half because reasons)




Image

The BT that Ken wields wraps around him and his sword, turning the blade into a lance that extends the reach two-fold. He aims it at the QuantumStalker in an attempt to skewer the hunter.






Image

The QStalker effortlessly wards off the blow.






Image

And bats Ken aside like a gnat.






Image






Image

"Gah!"






Image

Ken lands on his feet, shaken but alive. It felt as if the tendril of PT had sapped just a fraction of his power, he tried not to think about what would've happened if he had received a full-on dose of it.






Image

The Quantumsurfer rose to his feet and stared at his mysterious opponent from across their cosmic battlefield.






Image

His opponent stared back. Ken noted how strange the lighting had been, the bright lights surrounding them were almost alluring.






Image

The QuantumStalker was the first to break the silence.

"̩̭Y̘͉̦̭̬̠o͍̭u̬̜̪̫̟̩̟.̦͙̹̣.̲͖.̣͙̣̦̗"






Image


"͕A͓̯̩r͈͚̰ẹ̥̤͉.̟̪̞.̻̲̝̪̞͉.̼̙̳̗̞̩"̪̼̘̠͚͕ͅ






Image


"̩̺̆͝͡M̛̻̼̞̯̺ͨͬ̓ͥ͂̀Ï̎̂̓͐͏̵͕̟̬N̾͑̓̇͘͏̟͚̳̗E̡̬̤̼͒̇̍̔̏̒̈́́ͅ!̏͂̀̏͏̘͓͖͖̯̝̩̯͈"̷̣̣̓ͩ̾ͫ̾ͧ̉







Image

A shockwave of pure PT moved toward Ken like a tidal wave.






Image

"Hey, that didn't even rhyme!" Ken shouted.






Image

"Shitshitshitshit."






Image

Ken slammed the tip of his blade into the floor, BT seeping into the ground under his feet like a giant needle.






Image

And a small solid wall emerged to shield Ken from harm.






Image

It kept the deadly wave PT at bay for now.






Image

The QuantumStalker wordlessly sunk into the floor through a small cosmic portal, leaving Ken to his own devices.






Image

"What, already?" The Quantumsurfer grumbled, "am I too tough for ya?"






Image

"Well that's a shame."







Image

"And here I thought you were some big, bad, scary mother-"







Image

"-oh fuck!"






Image

Ken's sudden display of cockiness, the infamous Quantumsurfer Ego, was rewarded with pain of the most unimaginable kind.

Wouldn't that be fulfilling the soap?  Wouldn't that make the stalker's victory complete?
