Welcome one and all to the final part of the Wryn Crossover Saga and The last chapter in this fiction. Why's the story ending? It's not ending completely my dear Twilight but, as to why this book is ending after this chapter you'll have to read on to understand. Alright then, you heard him! Read on! Ah, on a side note. The side characters Axel, Gabriell, and Ebony will not be using Black text for this chapter do to the rest of the cast being barricaded inside the castle. So Don't complain about the color change it's been planned for a while.
Canterlot Castle Gates
Max, Wryn, Axel, and Several of Max's summoned beasts sat in front of the Doors to Canterlot castle. Wryn stifles a yawn, his eyes shifting back and forth, "When do I get to decapitate some blanks, my sword hungers," he says as he holds up Soul Vortex. Axel stares at Wryn and laughs. "Dude, never thought I'd say this but, I agree with him. I'm bored." "I know right," Wryn responds, "I just hope that there are enough to feed this blade, I want to give their leader a face-full of his own power in the form of dangerous light beams."
The two Bomb monsters furthest from the door charge some blanks and explode causing the group to get into battle positions. "Well then, Guess you got your wish. Get, ready! Here they come! Summon Hellfire!" Max said as he called up Ifrit. Wryn points Soul Vortex towards the sky, murmuring some inaudible chant, "Come forth, Xion!" he shouts as a huge dragon pierces the clouds in a rush, breathing pure dragon energy from it's maw. Axel claps when he sees the Dragon and Demon summoned. "Nice..." Was all he said as he started laying into the Blanks with his trademarked phrase "Burn Baby!" Xion starts to swipe at the swarm of Blanks in front of it, "Vengeance!" it shouted, claws ripping through their lines. "Dude... Overkill much?" Axel said as he finishes turning 7,000 blanks into a walking bonfire. "Well, it seems we have reached the first sections end" Dr. Hall appeared from out nowhere as his want.
"Nahhhhhhh," Wryn says as he sits by a cooking spit, ripping off some of the roast he had cooking, "He needed to get some time out, I mean it can get boring up in the sky patrolling the skies for the enemy." "Well... I don't think you should eat the monsters." Max said as another wave approached them, this wave having the bulk of the Scourge horde. With Ebony Bloodburner, Gabriell, and Blank Gilda at it's rear "It isn't, it's from the infinium storage in my gauntlet," Wryn says tapping on the gauntlet, "Why would you ever think I would eat these things?"
"Because I didn't know you could do that. That alright?" The Blanks charge all at once as Max and Axel vanish from sight with a magical pop "Aww man, I was just about to eat," Wryn says as he stands up to face the horde, "Okay guys lets make this quick so my food doesn't get cold," he lashes out with his sword, turning the mass of Blanks in front of him to dust, and then being absorbed into Soul Vortex.
Axel was tossed back landing past Wryn in a bloody heap. "That guy's hardcore... You go on ahead I'll hold the line." Axel said as he stood up while drinking some Spirit Drought.
"No one, hurts my friends, even though I just met this guy," roars Wryn as he launches through the Blanks, swirling his sword in a deadly arc, wiping them out and leaving him standing next to Max. Max sits on his left knee bleeding heavily. His swords broken and therefore useless. "Damn... Guess I underestimated him." Max then attempted to stand using one of his broken sword for support. "I'm not giving up yet!" The air around Wryn shimmers with the energy he is giving off, "That's the last straw, Seal Release!" he shouts as his eyes go from blue to white, and the very air around him begins to quake as he released some sort of ancient seal within himself. "Your life is now forfeit."
Max stood seeming to siphon some of Wryn's power into himself. Just enough to return him to proper fighting form. "Nice trick huh? Now then, let's show him how tough we really are!" Max summons his Key-Blade Burning Spirit. "I'm gonna break my Limit!" "Let's tear this guy to pieces!" Wryn shouts, grasping Soul Vortex at the hilt then splitting it in half, the vortex spreading around the duo and Ebony Bloodburner, cloaking them from the outside world, "Judgement of Eternal Flames!"
"That's more like it!!" Max smiles as he bursts into his Justified Inferno form causing His body to become a living fire. "Hit him hard, Make it sting! Inferno's Army!" The flames over his body spawn an unending swarm of fire monsters all striking Ebony once before exploding in flames. All the energy that was stored inside Soul Vortex form into thousands of light beams, "Taste this! Raining Vindication!" Wryn yells as the beams begin relentlessly pounding into their enemy. Max smiles as he swings his sword in a readying manner. "Time for the grand finale! Final Carnival! Infernal Finale!!!" Max jumps into the walls of the Vortex causing the whole thing to burst into Flames as Max appears from the center unleashing flames in a rainbow of colors at The Lich-King. The vortex swirls back into its orb and Soul Vortex reforms itself, leaving Max and Wryn alone in the space near the Castle Gate the two had been sitting at before the battle started, "How does it feel to be set ablaze and left for dead?" says Wryn. The Lich-King laying slain on the ground.
[End Combat Mode. That means if the music is still playing turn it off.]
Max looks at the beast that has caused so much trouble and couldn't help but think is was too easy. Wryn shouts to Max "Come-on let's get back. I bet everyone's worried." Max turns to Wryn and smiles before something stabs him in the back. "You think you've won?! Not while I still hold the key to your defeat." Ebony Had possessed Gabriell once again and had stabbed Max with his cursed blade. The Bloodburner sword. "not... fair-" Max said as the color begins to drain from him into the sword and a piece of paper forms in Ebony's hand. "Not so fast buddy," Wryn says to Ebony, "You seem to have forgotten something, or Someone." as he points behind Ebony, Wryn's summoned Dragon, Xion arrives and bats him away from Max.
Ebony does a flip into a clean landing and displays the paper. "The Contract your dear Maximillion signed to arrive hear now belongs to me. If I destroy this he will cease to be. Now and for Eternity." Bloodburner laughs as he feels like victory is in his grasp. "Xion, come help me," says Wryn as he taps his gauntlet forming his Draconite armor, Xion then shifts into a gem which fits onto the center of Wryn's breastplate, the armor shifting into a more ornate and deadly appearance and duplicating Soul Vortex, "I hope you have enjoyed your last few seconds of your pitiful existence, because," flashing towards Ebony and taking the contract away and storing it into the infinium storage, "You will soon be reduced to nothing!"
Ebony could only stare as his once chance of victory was snatched from his grasp. "You cannot win! If I die who will become the next Lich-King? There must always be one and none of the ponies here are dark enough for the task!" Suddenly a glint of Purple crosses his eye as a Man in a suit with a light-bulb head stands next to Max along with The Infamous Dr. Herbert Hall. The Strange being who Hall only refereed to once as The Elder God of Information spoke to the Desperate Lich-King. "Ah Mr. Bloodburner we meet again. My associate Mr. Hall will be taking your job from now on."
"Yup, your boned," says Wryn cheerily, as he chops Ebony in half and repeating this process over and over until he was nothing but a heap of ash on the ground, "Dr. Hall what's up? We got you a gift!" Dr. Hall bows and jumps into the pile of Ash and proceeded to comically bath himself in it like it was the best thing ever. "Why thank you! It's what I've always wanted." Wryn stares back at his roasting spit, "Dammit, my food got cold," he says hanging his head, "Alright Xion, you can go home," as he releases Xion, and the dragon flies off.
Dr. Hall walks over to Max causing the paper to spawn as he pulls the sword from him. He speaks in a voice that sounded much like Lady Death's. "You've completed your test so you are free now. The path you choose now is yours alone. Oh and by the way. Congrats on the kid." Dr. Hall vanishes along with the suit wearing elder god "I will never get that guy," Wryn grumbles as he approaches Max, "You feeling better man?" he asks while giving him a hand to his feet Max's wounds magically vanishing. "I feel like I've died... again. Other than that. I'm alright." Max says as he stands up resuming his Pony form while a similar voice appears behind Wyrn only much younger. "Ouch... what hit me? I have the worst Headache... Did we win?" A pegasus colt with his, wings, tail, and mane made of fire had appeared behind Wryn.
"Whoa, it's another dude," Wryn says astonished, "Dude when did you become a player," staring at the young colt. "I have never been a player!" Both ponies say at once. Causing them to both blink awkwardly. "Well... shit." Max said. "This is Awkward..." The colt replied. Wryn stares at Soul Vortex, "Ahahaha!" he breaks out laughing, "I can't believe this just happened," he finds them both staring at him, "Awww hell no! I'm out! Don't Expect me to Fix it, that's Hall's Job!"
Dr. Hall appears behind him as if on cue and taps his shoulder. "Flip a table and let's go. Trust me flipping tables is great stress relief." The Crazed Doctor turned Lich-King says with a cheery grin. "Fine," Wryn says as he takes out a table from the infinium storage and flips it, "Hey Hall, where are we going-" he is stopped short as a flash of light surrounds him. All he got for a response was "Home." Before Wryn and Dr. Hall vanished into a Dimensional Portal.
Max decided to take this as a chance to let the citizens of Equestria Know that they were safe. The battle was over. So Max and the strange Pegasus started the walk back to Canterlot. "So what's your name kid?" Max said to the strange colt who seemed to be no older than the Cutie Mark Crusaders, and was barely taller than Applebloom. "Maximillion Sparkle... Oh. I guess that's not the case anymore huh?" As the colt said that they both stopped for a moment.
"We really need Hall's help for this. But, first we need to give you a different name in case Twilight sees you." Max said while deep in thought before noticing that the colt had a multicolored fire burst CM. "How about Fire Burst?" He said using the CM has something to do with their name route. "Sounds good. I do have a question though... How the hell did this happen? I remember jumping into the Vortex then nothing." Max and Fire Burst both stood there in realization. "THE VORTEX!!!" As they figured out the reason behind this they heard clapping from behind them. They Turned to see Dr. Hall approaching them. What seemed to be a storm cloud trailing him.
"Ah good to see I don't have to explain everything. As for what I'm about to do I'll need to explain. You see there cannot be more than one of the same being in one dimension. The fact that you two are the same is a big problem. Max and Fire nod knowing that part already. "Yeah, so what do we do?" Dr. Hall snaps his fingers and the Storm Cloud zaps Fire Burst. He then places the unconscious colt on the cloud using his Pegasus magic to keep him there. "Before you get antsy Maximillion, I'll explain. This Cloud is known As Storm Nimbus. Stormy for short. I designed it to help our young friend in Wryn's Dimension which is where he will be living from now on. He will retain all of his former memories save for how to use some of your powers. Mainly your stronger ones. Dr. Hall explained while summoning a Dimensional Gate and pushing Stormy through it and by extension Fire Burst.
"Okay but, can you tell me why he was seven years old and why I suddenly feel a-lot younger? Max said as he stopped the cloud for a moment just so he could place a red ocarina next to Fire Burst with a note that read. "I wish you could have stayed and be the son I never had. Max" Dr. Hall didn't object to this and waited for him to finish before closing the portal behind the Cloud and Fire Burst. "It is indeed because of the Vortex, as you figured out. The reason for the age loss from you and how old Fire was is due to the fact that your pony form is about 13 years old. 20 in human years. Seeing as your soul was 7 years older than your body the soul vortex took those excess years and created a new being during your attack on Ebony. That being was the Colt that I just sent through the portal. Before you ask yes it was necessary. Unless you wanted to fight your own summon beasts. I'll be able to retrieve him after he learns to control whatever powers he possess but, that will not be for a while yet.
At Dr. Hall's explanation Max could only sigh. "So he can come back after he's got control of his powers right? How long will that take?" Max asked now feeling like something is missing. "Wryn's dimension and ours have a temporal loop between them. That means what could be years for them is days for us. His body will still age on our dimension's time clock though so if that is the case he won't be your age by the time he get's back." Hall laughed at his own statement. He then vanished in a burst of confetti from his top hat. Leaving a note behind. "By the way, I've rebuilt the blanks in a new form. Everyone who died during Gabriell and Ebony's little stunt will be resurrected, those who didn't will be reborn as Soul puppets. They will work off their sins and be reincarnated in that manner. PS. Tell Rainbow Dash to check where Gilda died. I did say everyone. Signed, Your friend Dr. Herbert Hall."
Max looked back towards Canterlot Castle with a new determination. "Well, that's cool. I guess I'll be able to live in peace for now and finally spend Time with my family." Max said with a smile as he ran toward the gates. The all clear alarm being sounded throughout Equestria as Celestia had received Hall's note as well.
That was so cool! What does it mean for now? It means that this story isn't over just the book. That's good I was hoping to actually see how our family progressed. That ending could have been 20% cooler. Darling please, that ending was simply Divine. Shoot, Ah' was hopin' for some screen time. Don't worry girls. The next book will have more time with you and the rest of the colorful ponies of Ponyville. That's a promise. All right then. Let's go get something to eat I'm starving. Oh yes, Solaris was just waking up. I think we should defiantly get some food... I mean, if you want to. *Via Telepathy* Mommy... I'm hungry! Right then. Food time!
