((For anyone who sees this, I'm sorry. And that's all I can do, is say I'm sorry for making everyone wait so long for nothing but an ending to just one part in what was supposed to be an ongoing epic rp series. Even though I have apologized SO many times in the past, and I won't expect*you're forgiveness, I don't deserve it.*
And to anyone who sees this, that the final chapter in Mission 7 has been written, and I will post it in this thread here to bring closure, and I will post it on the Aionios website somewhere from now to the beginning of summer. There are only a few things that are left with the final chapter that I must research before I can post it. The only thing thats keeping me from doing that, is a busy life that is catching up to me quickly because I decided to get lazy.*The demons sown by my procrastination over the past year are beginning to rear their ugly*heads.*And they are things I need to get out of the way first.
Also, if the RP does not pick up by the end of summer on Aionios, [website located here: http://www.aionios.proboards40.com/index.cgi*] then in honor of*and in*retribution to the rpers who helped make this one successful rp in the past, I will continue the story myself in issues like a fan-fiction. And try to stay as true as I can to the original story itself. Although, if anyone ever shows interest in joining in the story while I am writing it, I will cease the storytelling I have and let someone join in to help make it an rp once more.
This is the third time an rp has gotten ruined because of me. You all counted on me to finish this one mission so we could move on, and I couldn't even do that. But this was my favorite rp out of all those three, and I made really good friends through this rp. To continue the story even when I ruined it, and even when people have moved on with their lives, it's the least I could for everyone. And for Tempest at least, she created this RP for it to become something great. I intend to honor that, even if it's already to late. And even if no one reads this, or reads the continuing story of LUNA SOLE, I will continue it nonetheless till it is finished in full.
It has been far to long, the dragon of Luna Sole has slept its nap. It's time for it*to lay seige once again to the world around it in a*stunning display of storytelling through the eyes of the people who once made it great, and even*through the newcomers*who hopefully join us!
And for anyone who has never heard of this rp, but may like to join, go to the website shown above, and you can either participate in the*Luna Sole rp, or the World of Aionios rp, or both if you would like. Please do not join the story suddenly in this thread here, as it is about to come to a close. But feel free to join at the website above for Mission 8: Lunar Destiny, which has already begun but is still looking for new people.))
Final Chapter "Whatever Happened during the Battle at Fortress Ragnarok?"
["His name was Hogosa, and when he arrived, he made our world *."]
Hogosa had been finishing up his hands signs for a spectacular jutsu as Tempest and Kazekun watched. Weak. "What's he doing?" asked Tempest, steadying her stance, and tightening her grip on her last kunai. "It's a very special jutsu, called 'Heaven'. I love you Tempest." answered Kazekun, trying to not let his knees give out on him. Tempest's heart leaped for just a second at the sound of what she heard "What did you just say?" "Five Nations Jutsu - Enter: Heaven!" yelled Hogosa suddenly; swinging his hands out. What followed was a flash of golden light as the earth around them shook. The flash of golden light then engulfed everything, including Tempest, Kazekun, and Hogosa. And then silence. "Kazekun, Kazekun?" came Tempest's voice as she found herself in a spring valley; flowers flourishing en mass. ["We fought back, viciously. Many of us died."] "Tempest! Help me!" yelled Kazekun, as he found himself being pulled into the ground by limbs of black tar. His left hand sprung out in helplessness. ["Some us, though, were reborn. I have to admit, at one point I had lost all hope and thought we would never win."] "Kazekun!" yelled Tempest, as she shot out towards him; to save him. "Hahahaha!" an enourmous laugh shook the ground, as if God himself were present "Tempest, you have sinned against God. And so you must be punished!" ("Hogosa") thought Tempest, stopping in place. She steadied herself in another fighting stance. All of a sudden a pair of hands wrapped themselves around Tempest's body, and moved themselves upward on her body until reaching her neck. "I will kill you, or you can become my bride. I am God in this realm, remember that." it was Hogosa's voice, suttle and mercilious. "Then kill me. I will not become your bride." answered Tempest immediately. "Always the shinobi, I can see now why Kazekun would want to frame you and have you sent to jail. Hahaha." laughed Hogosa. Tempest's eyes grew wide, he had brought up one of her worst memories. And now she realized why it was also her favorite. She saw Kazekun, standing at a distance, staring at her with a smile. Hogosa wrapped his arms around her nck tightly and proceeded to strangle her. Her vision grew quickly white as she lost breath. ["And then, this happened."] A blue sword swung itself through the air, beheading Hogosa. His grip loosened on Tempest, and his body suddenly dissapeared. Tempest fell to the ground, but the man who saved her caught her before she made contact. Dressed in all blue armor, he rose his head and helmet up to reveal himself to her: Xinck. He smiled "I am here, my Tempest Angel."
Tempest looked up at him, her vision beginning to recover "Xinck...? Is it really you?" she smiled. "Almost" he replied. her vision returned to normal and it revealed to her her true savior: Kazekun, dressed in his celestial armor. He then kissed her, and at the very moment a strong wind swept through the valley, a wind that could only be forged by it's child. "I thought I could end this myself, Temp. I was selfish, and thanks to me everything fell apart. I'm sorry, for everything I have put you through. I need you to help me end this." He gave worried look, and then changed the direction of his gaze to what was coming towards them "He's coming. Be ready." his body then dissappeared in a rolling cloud of dust; causing Tempest to land on her butt. She quickly swirled around to face behind her: Hogosa was flying through the air at a very fast pace, the valley below him exploding in black smoke. His scarred face filled with anger, hatred, and fear. "Die you pregnant dog!!" He flung his heads out in front of him, immediately yellow balls of energy shot of each of them. They flew towards Tempest, but were cut short by an energy barrier of blue that now protected Tempest. A flying scythe attached to a chain flew through air and wrapped itself around Hogosa's neck, arms, and legs. Kazekun thrust himself into Hogosa's back causing him to smash into the barrier. "Aarrgghhh!!!" yelled Hogosa, unable to speak due to choking. "Now Temp, now!! Kill him now! With the Kunai!!" yelled Kazekun. Tempest hesitated for a second, she was still confused by what all was going on. "Now d**n it!!" yelled Kazekun, he was beginning to have trouble keeping Hogosa subdued. Tempest's face suddenly turned serious "Alright! Let's do this!" she jumped up and grabbed her kunai. She ran towards Hogosa. And with his chest stuck out, she took the kunai and swifly lodged it into his heart. Hogosa's face attempted to scream in agony, but no sound arose. Only a yellow light, that flashed from his eyes and mouth. His body expanded, and burst into the air in a cloud of dark smoke, sending Kazekun and Tempest flying in opposite directions. "Kazekun!" she yelled, her arm held out to its full length in hopes of that he would grab it. "Tempest!" yelled Kazekun, his arm held out to its full length in hopes that she would grab it. Tempest hit the ground hard and rolled many times, smoke shooting out from her body. "Tempest! Tempest wake-up! For the love of God please wake-up!" came a suddenly familiar voice. A female's voice. Tempest finally came to, and as her senses started back up she realized the person shaking her was crying tears of joy, and now hugging her. It was Kitten, Tempest was lying in rubble of guts, Fortess Ragnarok had exploded while they were the realm of Heaven. "Kitten..." she saw over Kitten's shoulder, and saw the smiling faces of all her friends looking at her; even her children were there, being held and cared for in the good hands or Tora, Karin, and Andrew. They were okay. "Kitten! Where is Kazekun?!" Tempest yelled suddenly, her head shifting in ever which direction. "Some of the others are looking for him now. If you survived the explosion, then maybe he did too." answered Kitten, tears streaming down her face "I'm just happy you're alive. That we all are."
Kazekun stood on the ruined spring valley, no flowers anywhere in a single mile radius. A hefty sign that an epic battle had taken place in that spot. ["Life, woven and bound by blood, sweat, and tears. By interaction between fellow beings. And by love, which in the end is the finishing layer."] Kazekun was now wearing his original garb. He spotted the kunai that was used to finally slay Hogosa, an ordinary kunai that had slain an extraordinary monster. It marked the end of an era. He then toggled with the ring Tempest had once given him, it still rest on his finger. He smiled "Well, the deal was that I then return to Heaven. But someday, I will escape to you." He then turned away from the kunai, and begin walking toward the mountains on the horizon, waiting for the next big thing to happen.
["Kazekun's body was never found, and though it devestated Tempest at first, she seemed to know what happened. We were never told the truth, and I was only told bits and pieces. But in the end, good won against evil. The world was safe from harm once again.
Hello, my name is Reinseele Azure."]
Epilogue 1 "The Story of a Mother and her Children"
---1 Year After the Battle---
Tempest led her three kids through tall grass that surrounded their new isolated home in the woods. "We're going to the gravesite, aren't we mommy?" asked Trinity, Tempest's young daughter. She held Tempests' hand tightly, she never did like the gravesite. Tempest nodded "Yes, we are. It's been an entire year since that day." Trinity was Kazekun's daughter, as the other two: Ema, and Zexion were the children of Xinck. "Come on you two, stop fighting. Let's go." ordered Tempest sternly; referring to Ema and Zexion. They reached an open valley, at the very edge of the field of tall grass rested two grave stones side-by-side. One for Xinck, and the other for Kazekun. (You two, you two saved my life. And you made me a true warrior. If you were before me today, I could not choose who to be with.) she knelt down to pray "First, we will all pray for your father Xinck, then we will pray for you father Kazekun. Got it?" asked Tempest to her kids. They agreed, and knelt beside her. (Though I will pray for you both alike, and hope that in the afterlife you are both happy, and as friends. Thank you, so much. For everything.) she slid her eyes open just a crack to see her kids praying quietly. She smiled....
Epilogue 2 "A Tale of Two Kittens"
--7 Months After the Battle--
"Just us three now guys." said Kitten, as she walked through the streets of a small town. Kyomaru at her side, holding her hand. She rubbed her belly, it was getting big from the pregnancy. (This is the life, sure it is. By myself, pregnant, husband dead...) Kitten lowered her eyes (And I thought Tempest had it bad.) Kyo tugged on her hand, he didn't speak much, not since Ragnarok. She looked up, an alarm began going off. A man came running out with a bag of money. "Out of my way!" he yelled. "No." said Kitten, standing her ground. Using a few easy moves she easily put the guy down. She stepped on his throat "You do not, mess with a pregnant woman." Fear overtook his face, he was not a ninja; she was. "Wow. That was spectacular for a woman who is pregnant." said a fellow Ninja as he came to take the man into custody. "Do not underestimate me. I am a ninja always." answered Kitten sternly. The man lughed "Thank You, I'm Zuckr Ai." Kitten smiled "And I'm Kitten." Kyomaru stood there looking up at them, his cat tail wagging in the air....
Epilogue 3 "Foreign Affairs"
---5 Years After the Battle---
"Get back here!" yelled Kalua Komanadi, as she and Mitch Accoca chased after two enemy ninja. "We can't let them escape!" agreed Mitch, he jumped into the air to get a better look of the area. His eyes turned big, he saw a giant open field, and at the other end the border to the country. ["Lord Raikage, the two Rain Ninja have fled, are attempting to escape across the border. We Mitch Accoca and Kalua Komanadi in pursuit."] Mitch And Kalua shot out after towards them faster, like lightning. The Two Rain Ninja kept onward, one turned and threw a shuriken toward the two ninja. ["We have also incorporated the help from two MCP members from the Fire Country."] The two ninja reached the open field, and there waiting for them were two other ninja: Salz Gross, and Mitsukai. "You awake?" asked Salz, towards Mitsukai. "Well, now I am. Not everyday I get a call from the MPC at three 'o clock in the *' morning." she answered. ["They will not get away with the Raistar,"] The Two ninja stopped dead in their tracks. Behind them stood Mitch and Kalua. They all readied for battle.
"I assure you." said Shunta Ookari, handing his report over to the new Raikage: Damashii Taka....
Epilogue 4 "Man of Action"
---7 Hours After the Battle---
Yatsuki, the man who had secretly plagued the life of Ryriku and his friends the sameway Hogosa once plauged tha tof Kazekun's, walked through the blood and guts rubble of the once living demonic castle: Ragnarok. "A sad ending to a creature of magnificant power. What would your former master, Hogosa say?" he reached down a picked up a limb, still writhing, yet still dying. "Those d**n kids, I had plans for you. I was going to free you from your shameful prison, and set you loosse upon the world. Pathetic creature." he dropped the limb after squeezing the remainder of it's life out. He continued to walk about "I am a man of action, and man with a plan. My plan will come to fruitation. And I know exactly how I will do it. All I have to do is wait." he looked up toward the moon "This time next year, on the night of the Lunar Eclipse. I, will finally win." he began to laugh.
"You..." came a pitiful voice from the shadows. Yatsuki turned around, and saw something moving towards him. "You are...a demon. Not human. Who are you?" The creature moved out from the shadows, he held out his hand to Yatsuki "Help me...I'm falling apart. My mind is shattering...."
