Lord Joyde The Madman: Heylo, everybody! How are you all doing?
Oh my fucking god the SELF-FULFILMENT FANTASY piece of bile review has somehow made its way onto the front page, again.
I'd like to ask you all to go and downvote the shit out of it if possible, for both my and your benefit as seeing that thing be thrown into the dustbin of history would be incredibly relieving.
Or maybe just upvote the first review on the second page, whichever that is so that it replaces the idiocy of Wolfsnows still-staining work.
Why is there not an option to remove reviews?! At least to let you guys vote it away... its really getting on my nerves, god dammit!
Don't mind me guys and girls! I'm just a line break...
A few minutes later... - Potsdam Northern Hill - Leonardo's Point Of View...
"Alright people, finish setting up those defenses! The flyers are going to be here soon." Resounding footwork began to fill my ears as I slowly woke from my meditative trance only to find myself already inside of the newly-established base on the hill."Huh? How did I get here?"
"Some of our boys carried you over since ya didn't move even after being called." Commander Rogers was, as always, seemingly ready to answer my questions."Ah, well thanks. I'm still not done recovering though."
The man nodded towards me."So what the fuck was that hand of god, kamehameha bullshit you pulled a couple minutes ago?"
"Kamehameha? I guess you could call it that. Its basically me condensing around twenty-percent of my total power supply into one dense ball of doom and then making it blast in a direction." A look of understanding etched itself upon his frame, albeit a smidge of curiosity and confusion remained."Okay, I get that part... but ... endsieg? Really?"
"My butler named it." A grin was his answer as I regained my focus and closed my eyes once again as a memory replayed in my mind. A piece of wonder: what happens when you use other energies to interact with the pure Life Energy?
Channeling my QI made me realize an interesting piece of previously-known information. I have twelve dantians within my body, with the main vortex being my Heart. The sheer mass of collective QI is creating far more heat than should be around a normal human heart, which is most likely the real cause of the implausibility discovered by mothers scanner. Although, I really shouldn't deny leaking hellfire a chance.
Not that I've ever noticed it producing any sort of heat."Enemy flyers inbound! Ready the Annihilan!" My focus was once again broken as the myriad of soldiers around me quickly took up defensive posistions and I couldn't really allow myself to stay in the open either, but as soon as I stood up from my sitting posistion, I felt two hands being placed on my cheeks.
However, before I could question this person, my neck was promptly twisted sideways and broken with a crunching sound that alerted my human allies."SHIT! Assassins!" Rogers didn't spare my supposed corpse a second glance as he and his soldiers immidiatelly readied their weaponry.
"SHEEP!" The formerly invisible esper who snapped my neck proudly stood over my body with one foot on my back. As incredibly insulting as this was, I found it in myself to just watch for now."Your traitorous ally was the only way your pitiful race could have been victorious this day! And you have let him fall! Now, you shall face the full might of the espers!"
He removed his foot and walked some meters in front of me, laughing nearly directly down the barrels of my allies guns. Unable to help myself, I gave out a toothy smirk. Something that my allies noticed and were subsequently creeped the fuck out by but managed to stay silent nonetheless.
Our joint esper friend firmly believed that their uncomfortable states was due to his presence alone."Tremble in fear, sheep! Tremble and grovel before us! For Lucifer himself comes to take you this day!" His incessant screeching was brought to a sudden stop as I began laughing, standing up with a twisted neck as if we were in some kind of horror movie."Guess you werent kidding about people calling themselves Lucifer and the like. An elite of theirs, I take it?"
"You could say that." Commander Rogers replied as the esper assassin turned around to stare at me in utter shock and disbelief."W-what?! IMPOSSIBLE! Nobody can-URGH!" My right hand quickly found itself around the assassins neck, a singular wave of gravity promptly pushing the other dozen assassins out of the shadows and allowing my allies to quickly mow them down in a blaze of gunfire.
My left hand reached for my own neck, twisting it back into place with a sickening crack that send the already terrified esper into full panic mode. He tried to kick me in the stomach as he was raised into the air by my hand, strange yet familiar purplish energies coating his foot as he did. Laughing at his poor attempt, I merely use the psionic powers I had stolen to turn the skin of my abdomen into bio-titanium, causing the esper to break his foot in the process."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGFBHH!"
His immaculate scream forced his remaining allies, those who had somehow managed to survive the gunfire, to turn back towards him and stare."You know... one of my many powers is the ability to heal mortal wounds. The way I do this is by feeding life to life, in the simplest of terms."
Commander Rogers now focused himself, straining his ears to hear every word as I seemingly began revealing my dirty little secrets. Sadly, this would not go according to his hopes and dreams."This, is as it should be. Life, feeds on life after all and in doing so ensures that its cycles are never broken, self-sustaining. Capable of nothing but continuous growth and decay."
I began walking, my hand still around the mans throat as he continued to struggle. I squeezed it harder, making his already pale flesh begin turning cobalt blue."So, how do these cycles manage to keep their own growth in check? How exactly is unwanted life made to wither and die?"
My savage grin turned bloodthirsty as I stopped and began channeling life energy into the man, forcing him to stay alive through all this and increasing his pain tenfold. My chest and his started glowing white, causing the soldiers eyes to widen and the espers to quake in fear."Feels good, does it not? To be alive and yet feed on life?"
"Uughghd!?!" The man, choking and fighting for dear life, grunted out in what was a mixture of ecstacy and horror. This made me laugh somewhat as I began channeling the QI around my heart, stopping the flow of psionic energy and coaxing the Life Engine by the use of QI alone. The white coloration turned a twisted crimson, not unlike the power of Chaos that has become so familiar over the last few days to me. As this newly-formed energy began flowing out of me and into the man, I found myself smiling even more wickedly as he began to choke once more, the power I was feeding into him no longer the healing type."You see, while life feeding upon life is a natural thing... sometimes, life tends to feed on too much life."
My grip on the mans throat tightened even further, causing his eyes to roll backwards in the process for the briefest moment, only to reopen wide and shocked as pain wracked his entire body."And when it does, it achieves an excess."
A turn of my head caused the espers behind me to shriek as I asked."And does anyone know what the excess of life is?"
They and my human allies remained quiet, a dreadful silence covering the entirety of the hill."No? Well, let me show you what happens when life becomes excessive, turns cancerous..."
The man I was holding suddenly gave out an immaculate scream as his skin burst into bubbles, his muscled frame becoming fat and distorted, his flesh sloughing off his bones, eyes bursting with blackened pustules.".... and dies, painfully so." My words echoed with a tone of finality as the man exploded in a shower of gore and blood, covering me in an entirely new shade of red as I turned around, my crimson-drenched clothing still shining from the white beneath."You better start running, friends."
New energy, created from the combination of Life Energy and QI, causes severe and uncontrollable mutations within a living body, quite literally reforging them into a colony of cancerous cells and killing the host within seconds.
Conclusion: further experimentation required. Would it be possible to control this new energy using psionics as you do with the pure Life Energy itself? If so, then there is no telling as to what kind of lifeforms we may be capable of creating via the usage of [PRIMA].
What shall we name this new source of power, master?
"I think I'll call this: Sanguinite." Satisfied with my work, I consumed the blood and gore on my clothes, returning them to their pale white.
Latin; sanguis, blood.
The remaining espers did not need a second warning as they stood up on bullet-ridden legs, throwing their bodies away, away and as far away from me as they could muster. Alas, a single gravitational anomaly brought each of them to me, lifting them up into the air and choking them in front of my audience.
Summoning Caedes, I line the espers up and slowly drag the blade across their necks, leaving only a trail of ash and dust in my wake."You should not have dragged me into this."
And then, I turned back around to face my rather horrified allies and exclaimed cheerily."Right! Anyone in need of healing?" My sudden change in demeanor caused my friends to gape before a couple of them rushed over with bleeding arms.
"Okay seriously now; what in the actual fuck are you?" Commander Rogers approached me with a raised weapon which made me give out a sigh, but I wasn't angry since this was kinda... logical to do by now."I dunno, why don't you tell me, Commander?"
"Don't you dare pull that shit with me, boy. I've been fighting espers for ten years now and nearly all of them made sense or were limited somehow, making them seem at least somewhat human in the process. You... do you even have a limit, a weakness?!" He exclaimed as I summoned the Candle Of Life and began healing the wounded, not even bothering to care about the killer rifle currently poised to blast my head clean off."Limitations... Well, you saw one of them just a few minutes ago. I need to recharge every so often."
"Yeah, uhh.. thats pretty normal but, y'know, the rest of us do it by fucking sleeping and not meditating like some ancient hindu or whatever the fuck those things are called." He lowered and relaxed his stance, yet appeared to retain his aggression nonetheless.
A tinge of respect has been building up within me for this guy. I'll admit, he has the balls for this line of work.... maybe because hes an actual soldier and not a fucking kid like the espers we've been slaughtering today."Well I.. don't have an explanation for myself, so uh, fuck?"
He sighed and closed his eyes."I'm going to have to ask you to come with me after this is all said and done. My higher ups are going to want you catalogued."
"Can I just rip off an arm or something and give it to you? Because that sounds fucking boring." My reply send the man into a spree of strained chuckles."Figured you'd say something like that. I'll bring it up with my boss, but I doubt you'll be allowed free roam anymore..."
"Not like you guys can take it from me." This sent the soldiers into an uncomfortable silence as I let out a sigh."Listen here you fuckwits, I'm currently your ally. The path you're trying to force here will eventually result into making you my enemies. Do you want to end up like this?"
I promptly pointed a finger towards the butchered and cancer-ridden corpse of the assassin that tried to kill me. They all shook their heads in negative, the commander included."Thats what I thought. Now get into posistion, those flyers are going to be here soon!"
Almost as if they collectively represented one restarted car engine, the soldiers rushed back into motion, reloading and resupplying themselves, setting up defensives and preparing for the coming bombardment. With one last look at the ashes skies, I walked over to the bunker of the Annihilan and returned to my meditative stance.
I haven't really recovered my full strength yet... and I feel like a worthy foe might just appear sometime soon.
Don't mind me guys and girls! I'm just a line break...
Thats it for this surprise chapter!
I had to finish up the last one as this was meant to be its part two but.. I really needed some sleep.
Managed to get five hours in this time, thank god for small miracles. (last few days I haven't slept at all... couldn't do it, no real defined reason as to why)
I'm going to get myself some sleeping pills this time and hopefully sleep away the daylight.
As per usual, I will stay online for a time to answer early commenters and edit out mistakes.
AND HEY, PLEASE GO DOWNVOTE THE SHIT OUT OF THAT CANCEROUS REVIEW! URGH! IT MAKES ME SICK JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.
Also yes, the motivation I needed for this chapter was indeed caused by the staggering 28 comments I got on the last chapter in just a few hours.
Anyways, read and review! And Good Morning/Day/Night to you all! ADIOS FOR NOW!!!!!!!!
