Not much to say so let's get started. Oh yeah... there will be Drama! And the first major boss fight in the series. Who is it? Read on to find out.
[Loading location: Border of Everfree Forest 12:00AM Three days after the 'Xam' incident (He's usually so nice so they called this negative version a reverse of his actual name.)]
Dreton stood alongside Herbert Hall who was holding Max's revolver. Herbert's robotic Bird Cluck was being used to track the energy signature given off by Max's magic. "Very good cluck, activate night search mode and lead on." *Cluck did as it was told and flew slowly through the forest.* "Hey Mr. Hall? Are we sure we'll find him out here? it's been three days and the search party was officially called back." "That's exactly why we'll find him now. He has been hiding and masking his magical aura to due so. But, now that the search is officially over he will reveal his magical aura so that he can move quickly." "I didn't understand a word of that man." "It means he was hiding from us and now he thinks we aren't looking he'll stop hiding." Ooooh. "Ah yes before I forget. Dreton, do you still have that experimental weapon I gave you?" "The one that unfurls into a large gun with a sword hilt and blade attached? Yes why?" "Just want to be prepare for anything my dear boy. Ah it appears we have arrived." Herbert pointed to the massive expanse of water before them.
Max floated on the center of the lake his magic radiating uncontrollably. From the outside it would seem he had put himself into a meditative state within a soap bubble. What they didn't know was that the 'soap bubble' was all that was keeping his powers in check. "I wanna pop that bubble." "If I were in my right mind I would say that is a very bad idea. But, I'm not so have at it while I go fetch our quadruped companions alright?" With that statement Herbert revealed why his nickname was Herbert "The Mad Herb" Hall as he dashed away towards the search parties camp laughing like a loon leaving Max's Revolver laying there in front of Dreton.
"That guy is weird. Oh well time to pop a big bubble." Dreton did as the strange inventor had instructed and twisted the pommel of the sword clockwise three times as he drew it. The sword expanded into a large rifle that was able to be held and used like a rapier. The hilt formed around the wielder's hand so that one could fire it from a single handed position with no recoil. This fit Dreton's combat style well as he had somehow picked up and used a rapier with ease as if he knew how it worked easily. Though he said he had no memory of any combat training. Hall dismissed it as natural talent. *Click... Bang!* The noise of the shot rang out through the Everfree disturbing all the life within and leading the six ponies and Hall straight to it's source.
"Wow it really did pop like a soap bubble!" Dreton said while he closed his eyes for a moment laughing. When he opened them again he saw Max in his Xam form holding the Heartfelt Vengeance to his head. "You just made... THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. MISTAKE!!! As Twilight and the others finally reached the Lake, it was all Herbert could do to tell them to look away as Xam shot Dreton point blank.
Dreton fell to the ground in a heap as Twilight screamed loudly. She had never seen anyone or anypony die before and she never expected the one she loved to kill them. She collapsed to the ground sobbing heavily. That was until the group gasped as Dreton stood up as if he had only been knocked down. His blonde hair began to flow even despite the lack of wind, the wound in his face from the bullet had vanished only to be replaced by a deadpan stare. He summoned a sword of pure light to his side that was instantly engulfed in golden flames. As the figure stood the sky above them darkened as if in anticipation of the clash to come. "I'm afraid mortal dog... That your the one who has made the error. You have given up your final chance and have been judged unworthy of his grace's divine salvation. So I Uriel shall inflict upon you His Wrath. With these words the being cast Max aside as if he were nothing. Max taking note of this decided to fight with all his strength.
Max was the first to attack he unsheathed his sword and charged Uriel he swung fiercely but, Uriel blocked his attacks easily. As if Max was nothing. Max stepped his game up and used some of his skills His two strongest skills he could use while not risking the on-lookers where 'Soul Fire Slash' and 'Millennium Strike'. He decided to go with the former first then quickly use the latter as they were formed into a combo he called the 'Light-speed Nova-Blade' He charged his blade with his *Nova magic and struck at Uriel. (*Nova magic comes in two forms Normal and Chaos Nova. Nova does massive Fire and Light damage, while Chaos Nova does massive Darkness damage instead of Light.) Uriel easily blocked Max's strike with his holy blade.
Max decided to use the Millennium Strike but, Uriel easily blocked each of the 1,000 hits and cracked Max over the head with his weapon's pommel. "Come now child. I would have expected the destined savior's father to be much more powerful. Though I guess the power could come from it's Unmarried whore of a mother. Ah there she is." Max looked in both anger and fear as Uriel had appeared next to Twilight. She stared at Uriel in a state of mortal terror. His uncaring eye's looked to be staring deep into her soul to find the slightest excuse to kill her then and there.
[If holy orders is still playing stop it. Play this instead.]
Max then put together what Uriel meant. Chosen Savior's father. It's unwed whore of a mother. The fact he looked so eager to end Twilight's life. Twilight was pregnant with his child and Uriel was not happy about it in the least. Max stared at Uriel to find even the slightest opening in his stance and he realized that he didn't have any. If he attacked Uriel would kill Twilight to get Max angry so he would be easily defeated. Max was snapped out of his concentration by Twilight screaming and Uriel holding her up ready to stab her with his weapon.
"In all honesty, I really don't care what happens to this world. If that foolish boy hadn't accepted that contract and just gone to hell like I suggested than she would still be alive. The beast who now impersonates an Angel is his doing! So as the one sent to this plain in the name of divine justice, I shall wipe his lover, his offspring, and him from this world so that his taint will fade with time!" Uriel said the anger seeping from his voice. Max knew that Uriel was talking about the fact that the monster in his old body, had both killed and consumed Lady Death. The monster who now impersonated the angel of vengeance Gabriell. (It's spelled with two L's for the reason that it's not the real angel. See? I knew someone was going to ask that.)
Max finally got enough control over his powers to magically eject Twilight, Herbert and the others from the forest and back to Ponyville. This got an enraged reaction from Uriel. "You Dare prevent me from carrying out his will?!" This outburst gained an amused look from Max who had begun to burn like a living flame. "No... I prevented a vindictive angel from falling from grace due to a petty grudge. Now let's get back to business." At this Max and Uriel charged each other one final time.
The clash of blades caused the very world to tremble to it's core. The blast could be seen from anywhere on the planet, as a massive pillar of flames that pierced the heavens themselves rose from the site of the two's battle. Max and Uriel struggled greatly to gain the upper hand but neither could. What ever was causing Max's new burning form had given him enough power to match Uriel blow for blow. Max then charged all of his power into his weapon which took on a new form to match it's new found strength.
"Now that is awesome!" Max swung at Uriel with his new sword and managed to stagger him. "How?! How do you hold so much power?! No mortal could ever withstand such force?!" "Well as you obviously can't figure out. This world Doesn't work the same and if your trust in friendship and love prevails you can do great things!" Max's body burned with white flames as the entire burning pillar was swallowed into him. "Feel the pain that you have caused! Flames of Judgement!" Max swung the blade and the flames engulfed Uriel causing him to fall to the water below. As he was submerged for several seconds. He then re-emerged looking really confused and stared around with Dreton's trademark goofy look.
[Boss Fight ends.]
"Dude... what happened? And why do I smell marshmallows? Did you guys eat marshmallows and I passed out? Dang... I love marshmallows." Dreton swam to the shore completely unfazed as to the battle that had taken place. Max landed next to him his pants the only article of clothing on him that wasn't destroyed during the battle. When he looked at Dreton he could tell that Uriel was no longer in control, Dreton's eyes had always been full of hope and laughter. While Uriel controlled him there was nothing there except anger and rage. "I'll tell you later man. For now let's just get home and get some sleep." Max said realizing that Dreton and Uriel might share the same body but, obviously not the same mind. He had a-lot to write to the princess after all that.
Halfway through the forest Dreton collapsed from exhaustion and asked Max if he wanted stay at his apartment in Herb's lab, when he offered to carry him. Max was honestly more worried that Twilight wouldn't even want to talk to him after what happened. So he dropped Dreton off at Herb's place and headed towards the Library saying he needed to make sure the girls were okay.
[Day 6: The Vengeful Angel and The Flames of Judgement Summery: Forms obtained = Unyielding Blaze/Nova, Chaotic Inferno/Chaos Nova. (These forms are both a variation of the one Max used above. The actual form he used is called Justified Inferno and uses both Light and Dark energy.) Skills obtained = Flames of Judgement/Nova+Chaos Nova(Requires the use of Justified Inferno to perform this skill. As he doesn't have the ability to use that form at will yet this ability will be rarely used.) Gear obtained: Sparkling Dawn has changed into the Helios Nocturne sword which amplifies wielder's Fire based attacks. Also boosts Mana pool.(MP) Friends made and status: N/A Enemies made and status: N/A People met who have yet to be figured out: Uriel/Dreton = Max believes that Uriel is locked inside Dreton for a reason but, that reason still eludes him.]
Holy flying fish! Did you see that?! We should have some kind of party but, what kind of party would we have? I would suggest one where we can just sit around and enjoys some baked goods. Sounds good enough to me. *Pinkie hits the lights.*
