A Saint Seiya Omega Quest! When evil threatens the world, the warriors of hope will always appear. Garbed in Cloths representing the constellations, they fight exploding the energy within them: their Cosmos. They are the warriors who protect the love and peace of the world… The Saints! Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kouga:%20Saint%20of%20MarsTwitter: https://twitter.com/BelkanSniper Opening; Pegasus Fantasy!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqKCXeGW54Q >You better watch it!Today we run: >The City of Light (X-2, hopefully 4chan doesn’t die on us again Edition. Across the world the flow of energies in the ley lines have been distorted which it might lead to the destruction of the world, thus the Alchemists have named this future catastrophe as BABEL. The city of Paris is one of the sites of this sort of distortion, as great quantities of magical energies have accumulated in it, enough to open a gate to hell. This is all disturbing, but right now you, Kouga, as a Saint that fights for love and justice have only one question. “So then, what are you guys going to do about this? I mean, the alchemists won’t allow the world to end, right?” This is what’s important right now, plus knowing this might allow the Sanctuary to help the alchemists in their noble goal. Vivi looks to each side, and once she makes sure there is no one suspicious near you, she motions at you to get close. You almost lean against her, your ear close to her mouth, to her whisper, “Of course, the alchemists of Atlas will save the world, after all, the alchemists are heroes of Justice! So don’t worry, we will stop Babel. As to how we will do that…” Vivi grins widely, “That’s a se-cret!”
>>34797458“Eh?” What… you can only stare at her for a moment before you quickly ask again, “What happened to trusting one another, heroes shouldn’t keep secrets?” You are not pouting angrily or anything, you just really want to know, and Vivi has no reason to laugh at you! Really she doesn’t! Laughing at people hurts their feelings… really! Somehow… eventually Vivi manages to contain her laughs, and just gives you another radiant smile. “Sorry, that’s classified information, Saint Kouga, I can’t tell anyone outside of Atlas.” Gee, then say that. “But if you joined our organization, then I might be able to tell you.” What!? Slow down girl! We went from talking about the end of the world to you joining the alchemists? You need some time to process this. So… well… what do you do? >Ask her to tell you, we both want to fight for justice! >Ah forget this, if you don’t want to tell me, then I don’t care! >You know this is dangerous right, they can use this to summon demons. >So then I will trust you to solve this mess, K. I will count on you. >So then why did you mention the ley lines then? >Okay, fine… let’s go and meet the others [Get back to our mission] >Other?
WISE UP: CITY OF LIGHT (again)Just a friendly reminder, in this city of light the demons and the darkness they represent shall not be tolerated, that’s why you will not be able to contact that friend of yours Child of Man. So instead, we, who represents the will of the God of Light and Order, will take over this duty momentarily and help you.Child of Man, if you find yourself lost or with a inquiry during your remaining time in the city, please do not hesitate to ask, for I promise to answer. Remember that as a servant of my most glorious lord, my tongue is only allowed to speak the truth and only the truth, I hope you grow to understand the value of that virtue of ours.>Signed, the Foundation.
>>34797533WISE UP: My enemies…Kouga, like I said last time, my enemies are near there… I am not sure if they are after the grimoire or if they are there for something else, but be wary… and don’t trust them (then again, to be fair they will tell you to not trust me).If things get hard, don’t be afraid to run away. As long as you are alive, you will always have another opportunity to do something, but a dead man can’t do anything. Sometimes retreating is the only thing you can do. So be careful. Their light is like poison to someone like you, Kouga, whose powers come from the darkness primordial. Honestly they are not enemies you can deal with easily. >Signed Silberkreuz, who feels he has to repeat this until you get it across your thick skull. NEXT WISE UP:>MAD? >Compendium Data->Silver Flame. >Instruments of Light=Key of Exorcisms >My enemies (who are they?) >Prometheus’s true legacy… >Ask about a Catastrophe? (Write In which one?)>Mages and Saints. How do they differ? >Curses>Calamities and Monsters>Homunculus. >Angels>Other?
>>34797474>So then why did you mention the ley lines then? she must have a reason to mentioning it even if she can't share everytingh she knows>>34797533>the magic organisations on this cityis there other groups other than the alchemists and the people that work with the witch of light?>>34797720>>My enemies (who are they?)
>>34797749>>is there other groups other than the alchemists and the people that work with the witch of light?WISE UP: Other Mages? Mages are heretics, enemies of our Lord, but even know when the gates of hell are about to be opened we have to tolerate them. But now that you have asked, Son of Darkness, I will consider their existence, as much as it pains me to. In this city, besides the alchemists who have forsaken the teachings of our Lord and the witch of light who has desecrated the light we believe in, there is a considerable concentration of blasphemers and cultists who commune with the demons to obtain power and have lost their way. Sadly their souls are lost, and there shall not be any mercy for them. Besides that, there are two children of the darkness in the city, a seer, a grieving child of fire and flames who recreates the legends of old, and finally a man who sees the stars. Outside the city, there is a deep darkness approaching, one who has blasphemed against our Lord and his return on the third day. A heretic such as that woman is not someone that shall be forgiving. >Signed the Foundation.
>>34798076“Wait if all this is classified, then why did you tell me about the ley lines? Is there something I have to know?” Vivi must have a reason to mention all this, right? “So you are dogging my questions, Kouga, I guess you don’t want to become an Ally of Justice like me… that’s quite sad,” for a moment you fear that the taller athletic girl would get angry at you, but Vivi simply continued to smile at you, “But that’s fine and that’s a smart question. Good Kouga, the friends of Justice have to be smart, to protect JUSTICE!” Vivi might be someone who smiles all the time, but you feel that smile is refreshing. Compared to the serious Eden, the stoic BT, the logical professor and mysterious masked Sonia; having someone with a smile this vibrant simply cheers you up. So yay for happy people, you need more of them in your life… like Master. “Well, even if the 1st Catastrophe is a worldwide phenomenon, the changes of the ley lines in the city were too fast… so it was worrying us. Either it was a new evolution of the pattern of the 1st, or this is something similar but different? Sadly Atlas is occupied with the Victors, and I can’t really study it by myself, so I told you because I wanted to hear another opinion on this, so what do you think, Kouga?” What do you think about the ley lines and the BABEL phenomena? >Well they are dangerous, so the best thing we can do is take the Grimoire out of here. >This is dangerous girl, it can summon demons! >Don’t worry, personally I don’t believe that this is important right now. >Someone might be manipulating them… but I don’t know who. >Not sure what to think, I am just a Saint...>Other?
>>34797749Wise Up: My enemies...You already know who my enemies are Kouga, they are the machines created to serve that mad tyrant who dares call himself the God of Order. They are soulless things without freedom that only exist for the purpose of exalting his name.They are divided into different ranks, starting with the Angels and ending with the Seraphs, but all of them wield the power of light as they please, which means you should avoid fighting them. After all you don't want to be exorcied by an angel do you? Right now you don't have to worry about them, I doubt they will try to do anything too important here, and realizing in the world of light is something they won't do just because... so you don't have to fear. Still, that bitch is there... and that worries me. But she has always been a coward, one who hides behinds her other brothers and prefers to use others to act, so I doubt she will try to fight you personally, so she is a non-issue. Still be careful. >Signed Silber.
>>34798631>This might dangerous it can summon demons!>Someone might be manipulating them… but I don’t know who. most probably there's more to this than it meets the eye, we must be careful
>>34799240sorry dude but maybe we should give it more time?
>>34799283You mean extending the voting time?
>>34798631>This is dangerous girl, it can summon demons!
>>34799411that's what I was thinking is there a problem?
>>34799477Not really, sure, I will extend the voting time for 10 minutes more. I don't mind people telling me these sort of things, so if you guys feel I am doing something wrong, don't be shy saying something.
>>34799500>>34799455>>34799132Well now I am writing
>>34799762Your opinion, well while keeping the whole Hell Gate business only with your teammates would probably be the most prudent choice. Honestly you don’t have any solid proof that this will happen, only some theories and conjectures, but Vivi deserves to know. “To be honest, I mapped out the flow of the ley lines underneath the city, and you are right, the flow is too abnormal. But that’s not the only thing that worries me, with so much energy under the city, someone could use it for something bad, real bad.” Here you pause, and the moment Vivianca sees your serious witch face, the alchemist’s eye narrow and the bright smile she has plastered on her face grows dim and straight. “Using the grimoire we are looking for and the power running under the city, someone, like a group of cultists, could use it to open a gate to the underworld and summon a legion of demons into this world of light. Hearing this, the last traces of a smile leave Vivi’s face, and all that is left is steel, steel that exists to protect the Justice of this city. Without even asking you anything else, or even hesitating, Vivi simply answers, “Then let’s get that grimoire and move, Saint Kouga, we don’t have time to waste.” “Wait, but there might be someone behind this, I think that there are probably some sort of demon cultists involved with this, but that might not be all, someone could be behind this and that worries…” You want to protest more, but Vivi just silences you by placing one of her fingers on your lips. “I already can guess that, Kouga, but it doesn’t matter, we just have to secure the Grimoire right, then let’s get moving.” Gee, how can this girl just say it like that, this is not so simple.
So what will you do?>Go and rejoin Eden and BT. >Try to ask Vivi about the people in the city? >Try to ask Vivi if she knows how this might work, or if she has any ideas on how to stop this if the ritual starts? >Ask Vivi if she thinks Beatrice is involved in this? >Other
>>34799998>Go and rejoin Eden and BT. >Try to ask Vivi if she knows how this might work, or if she has any ideas on how to stop this if the ritual starts?
>>34800402“Then let’s go rejoin my friends.” You still want to ask Vivi more questions, but you feel you have neglected Eden and Versa enough, if you stay away any longer, you feel that Eden and BT will start to worry about you. Quickly, you guide the alchemist warrior to your designated meeting point, where your fellow Saints are waiting. When Eden sees you, he moves in to questions you, but as he lays eyes on Vivianca, the prince quickly stops himself and goes on the defensive. BT on the other hand, is literally preparing to rip the alchemist head off. Yay for friendship. Raising your two hands in a sign of peace, you start talking… quickly, no need to tell Medea that you got her son killed in a catfight. “Eh… guys, this is Vivianca Barlobello, the alchemist I met yesterday, I asked her to join us to retrieve the Grimoire in case anything happens.” Eden being the mature and smart prince that he is (…kinda), quickly shifts gears, and extends an open sign of friendship to Vivi, “I am the Orion Saint, seeing as you are working with us, I hope you don’t slow us down alchemist.” Yep, a true sign of friendship.Even Black Tarantula joins in on the hugs and kisses, “Alchemist, I do not trust you, but if Kouga has decided this, let’s work in the same unit.” Yep, Versa is a very welcoming person. Yep, this is a real festival of friendship… yep. You feel like crying.
>>34800888But Vivi just ignores everything, and soldiers on like a true hero! “Understood, then let us all work together to make a world filled with justice and peace!” Vivi’s bright smile is like a gospel of friendship, but sadly your partners are not too open about it, but at least you got that out of the way. Turning to Vivi, you ask her a question, “Do you know how the demon summoning works, and do you have some ideas on how to abort the ritual if it starts?” Well the more options you have the better, the Mana Burn is your last resort, and you want to leave it at that. Sadly Vivi can only shake her head, “Sorry, I am not that type of mage, I only understand the bare mechanics of how the gate might work, and sadly, my team only came here to take some measurings about the situation in Paris, we are not equipped to handle something like that. If I had the time I could go back to Atlas and ask a specialist to prepare something, but sadly that would take a week. I guess that in the end, we need to get the Grimoire now.” The alchemist pauses for a moment, and brings a finger to her lips in a thinking position, “Say, Kouga, what are you going to do with the Grimoire when we secure it? You never told me why you were so adamant about you getting to keep the Grimoire?” Smart girl, fishing for info too, you guess it's fair enough. But… this is a tricky one, how do you should you answer this one? And honestly, what are you going to do with the book, that’s a good question indeed. >Say the truth, you will give it to a witch to seal it. >You will read it, and use its power to save others. >You will seal it, and toss it to the darkest abyss. >You will destroy it, it’s not meant for humans. >You will use it to summon a demon yourself? >Other?
>>34801090>You will seal it, and toss it to the darkest abyss. This is technically not a lie. We are going to seal it
>>34801090>You will read it, and use its power to save others. JUSTICE!
>>34801394>>34801498Will give it 10 more minutes before closing the votes. And like always, don't make me roll for it... plz.
>>34801516for the sake of PEACE I'll now support this>>34801394
>>34801498Changing to this It's totally not like I wanna see if we are going to end up destroying the world for the fifth time
>>34801629>>34801623... ties are evil, an evil that poisons the heart and kills me souls. >Tatada, you two unlocked the title: Double Crossers.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>34801672Oh man that's amazing rollan1- Read2- Seal
>>34801623>>34801845So Seal... while that is the most boring one, I guess I can see why it works. >Writing, but will be open to votes/changes.
>>34801886>Implying we don't job incredibly and end up having to read it For JUSTICE of course
>>34801927Actually, it's more about Vivi and you, but hey, say what you feel works better. Plus >Implying you won't use the book and summon the demons yourself!
>>34801954“It’s simply, we will seal that thing in the deepest abyss of the Sanctuary and stop everyone from misusing it. So don’t worry, I promise that the book won’t get misused. I am also someone that fights for Justice.” You give Vivi your nice guy smile while explaining her how that would work. And this is not a lie, sure you aren’t sure what Medea might do with the book, and you are planning to peak at it at least once when you get home, but you are sure that in the end your teacher will seal the thing off and dump it into your library. Plus it’s not like you or your teacher would do anything that would go against Justice, right? Vivi takes a few moments to think, but in the end she buys into your quick explanations about how the Sanctuary has a secret vault where it stuffs all sorts of evil grimoire and magic weapons that can destroy the world (this is also true). In the end Vivi simply believes in you, “I understand, then I will trust that you will make sure that the book is not used to do Evil, right Saint Kouga?” Seeing you nod energetically simply makes the taller girl smile back at you, “Then I have nothing to worry about, I am sure that an ally of justice like you can handle everything. Then… let’s go Kouga, we have work to do.” A part of you feels bad about kinda lying to Vivi, but it’s the truth… just not the whole truth. There is nothing wrong with that right. Still, what should you do right now. >Go and meet your contact, the curator of the Exhibition. [No going back!] >Talk to BT and Eden one last time, you have to make them ease up on Vivi. >Ask Eden about what he found out during his recent walks? >Do this another time, go find Al or something. [Run away!] >Other?
>>34802362>Talk to BT and Eden one last time, you have to make them ease up on Vivi. >Ask Eden about what he found out during his recent walks? last preparations! after this the mission!
>>34802362>Talk to BT and Eden one last time, you have to make them ease up on Vivi. Then>Ask Eden about what he found out during his recent walks?
>>34802413>>34802475I feel like... >writing! >Also remember your promises, that is the only path for a man of JUSTICE like you!
>>34802599“Eh, Vivi could you give us a moment… please!” Not even giving the alchemists any time to protest, you drag both Eden and BT to a corner, away from everything and everyone. It’s time to talk, and this one will probably not be a nice talk. You level a glare at both Eden and BT and seeing as it does nothing to intimidate them, you just talk. “Look, I know you both have plenty of reasons to not like the alchemists or Vivi, but we all know there is something weird going on… and that’s why we need their help, to prevent something horrible from happening here.” You take a moment to meet both Eden’s and BT’s eyes, “Do you two get me?”You don’t expect them to answer you, but BT, who lacks some of the knowledge of how these things works, actually answers you, “As I understand it, I am trying my best to be cordial with the alchemist, but no matter what she says, she is my enemy, and I can’t afford to lower my guard with an Alchemist.” For the first time since you met BT (which is admittedly like more or less a week or so), your friends words carry a terrible venom. You aren’t sure what BT’s exact problem with Vivi (besides the fact that it involves Versa being a homunculus), but you are feeling it’s not that simple.But before you can say anything, Eden cuts in, “Black Tarantula is correct Kouga, we can’t lower our guard with your new alchemist friend. You are correct in the fact that there is much riding on securing that book, and that is exactly why we have to be wary of outsiders, including the alchemists. There is something strange about that Vivianca girl… she just opened up too easily, and I fear she might betray us down the line.” This again, Eden is just being too paranoid, right? It’s like his Beatrice is evil theory, totally unfounded, but you aren’t sure how to handle this.
>>34803332What should you tell your friends? >Okay, keep your guards, but try to dissimulate a bit. >I know that, I plan to betray her down the line. >[Softly] You guys are better than that, you both should know that distrusting people like this will not help... >You are wrong, Vivi is like us, someone who wants to protect the world. She is our Ally, she fights for JUSTICE! >No, we have to work together, so get pass your hate and distrust. That’s not Saint-like. >If you don’t trust her, then trust me. I trust Vivi, and that should be enough for you two. >Fine, I also don’t trust her completely, but that doesn’t change the fact that we need her. >BT… you are being irrational and prejudiced, Eden… you are being paranoid and distrustful. Stop! >Other?
>>34803359>If you don’t trust her, then trust me. I trust Vivi, and that should be enough for you two.BELIEVE IN ME THAT BELIEVES IN HER!(also I se Kouga as a trusting person)
>>34803359>If you don’t trust her, then trust me. I trust Vivi, and that should be enough for you two. Well let's just hope it's a caffeine related problem not her pulling the Wool over our eyes
>>34803504>>34803574Writing. Go Friendship!
>>34803709If you allowed yourself to be honest, you are probably the one who is being wrong here, Medea has always told you that people lie, that they betray and use each other time and time again, but… The darkness you believe in is a gentle darkness, one that welcomes everyone and everything. It doesn’t exclude everything but one person like the primordial darkness that god represents and that shitty third-rate imitation that only exists to devour everything in its poison and hate can’t even dare to try and compare. Your darkness is a warm darkness, one that accepts… and that’s why you want to believe in others, including someone you just met like Vivi. That’s also why you accept that it’s hard for both Eden and BT to simply accept Vivi, so you simply smile and talk, because honestly you are good at talking. “I know it is hard for both of you to deal with Vivi and honestly, you two might be right about her. But I don’t want to think like that, distrusting people and being scared of them. Honestly, I feel that’s not a good way to live, nor it is how I want to live my life.” You turn to Eden and say, ”Part of being strong is not being afraid to be hurt, it means opening up to others and getting hurt, Eden.” Then you turn to Versa, “And part of being logical is understanding that your prejudices can hinder your goals, and understanding that sometimes you have to look beyond then, BT. I know that both of you are better than this, so please give it a try. And even if you don’t trust her, then simply trust me. I trust Vivi and that should be enough for you two.” In other words you are asking them that if they can’t find it in their hearts to trust the alchemist, then they can trust in the you who trusts in Vivianca.
BT simply nods, logically and coolly understanding your implied orders and silently walks towards where Vivi is calmly waiting for your meeting to finish. You can’t exactly read her, but you can tell she is no longer as tense as she has been. Plus the fact that she is no longer glaring daggers at Vivi is quite telling too. But Eden is more complicated, so you turn your full attention to the prince and hear him out. “I… I still don’t trust her Kouga, but like you said, I simply must trust you then. Then fine, I will play along your plan, but I will keep my eye on her, just keep that in mind.” That’s probably the best you can expect from the proud prince of Mars, so you simply nod, “That’s fine, like I said, I understand, plus you are doing this because you care… so let’s go, we have work to do, Eden.” Both of you accept these terms, and together Eden and you walk calmly to meet your teammates, a sense of calmness and understanding passing between the two of you. It’s not perfect, but you feel you are now a true team, and you are ready to tackle your mission. So it’s time to steal the Grimoire of Prometheus, and now you know that no one will stop you. >Kouga: Saint of Mars Part 29 END.
>>34804284>So it’s time to steal the Grimoire of Prometheus, and now you know that no one will stop you. Except you know everyone.
>>34804284NEXT TIME on Saint of Mars: Kouga and Company enter the Louvre Museum, and meet Beatrice’s contact, a certain man with a golden bracelet from Egypt. With the help of this ancient mummy hunter, Kouga and friends make their way to their target, but then they face the truth about the situation! A surprising meeting happens! Mix in Human X Fire X Demons X Light X Hate X Hope x Betrayals x Lies, When all these ingredients combine, Kouga’s world shall change. >Next Time: Part 30: Flaming the Conflict. Aria: Try not to end the world this time, Kouga! Somehow, I still want to believe in an idiot like you. Well with this we finally finish, if you guys have some questions/comments/critiques/requests for Wise Ups or something don’t be afraid to say them. Hell, tell me what I am doing wrong or that I am too slow.
>>34804340Hey don't be like that, trust in Kouga... I mean what could go wrong here, Kouga's plan is solid as steel. Trust in the kid!
>>34804418>Aria: Try not to end the world this time, Kouga! Somehow, I still want to believe in an idiot like you. SwordsEh you're speed is fine with me mostly because of how easily I get distracted by everything
>>34804489I honestly, feel like I am writing too slow, and I need to work on my pacing, but I am glad you are liking it so far. >>SwordsAnd hey, don't be like that, everyone can make mistakes. Sure Kouga blew up the world once or twice, but that's nothing too bad. You are still living, right? Just make up for what you did!
>>34804418Aria, you don't want, you DO believe in a idiot like Kouga.That why you stay with him, help him, married him, have sex with him, have children with him, raised kids with him, created and watch over a new world with him and prevented him fron nuking paris and toyko.New york city gets no fucking love.
