Once again, as a reminder, do not make any editing or corrections to this, do not point to me of any mistakes. I will not make corrections. I`m leaving this mostly as is of what it was when Tojo and I rped this out. We both have different rp styles so expect there to be some inconsistencies in things such as apostrophes and tenses.
I`m starting to do less editing on this, the amount it takes to make it close to proper is just too much work at this point. Sorry.
It was a good few clicks elsewhere that Jet and Storm were positioning all the treasure they had looted; mainly the master emerald.
'Move it a little to the left..'
Storm obliging Jets commands to the letter.
'..Nah, looked better on the right. Yeah, let's keep it on the right.'
Wave`s voice pops up,"What are you, a woman, Jet?"
Wave rides over to the two of them on her gear board with it finally slowing down. She has a smirk on her face, suggesting her comment was meant as a joke.
'Nahhh, I just want everything to be perfect before we move up ahead.'
His feathers here took on a silvery look and feel, kicking up his board, he stretched. 'So I guess you found our guests and made them comfortable, huh?' Crossing his arms, looking back to the Master Emerald.
"Oh yes. Reallllll comfortable...Hehe."
Her board comes to a full stop.
'So what'd you do-' Interrupted by barking and yelping of the G.U.N. soldier, looking over at the dog.
Wave puts her hands on her hips and looks boredly at the dog,"Couldn`t we have changed him into a shih tzu? At least then his speed would be that of a turtle."
"Those dogs look retarded..at least he's not bad to look at. And look, the mutts already panting.." Walking over, he grinned. "Heya pooch, miss me? Oh what's that I got here? Ohhh, it's my boot, and it looks like I'm about to kick it at you.." Suddenly roughly kicking the dog, he walked back to the master emerald, setting a hand on it. "If things work out, we'll be able to do whatever the hell we want in the world. Not that..it's any different now..but we can run things dis-opposed."
A devious smile returns to Wave`s face,"Looking forward to that!"
"King, Queen, and Duke.." As he was the rightful leader of the Babylon Rogues, he grinned at their little dream. "Babylons comin' back. With force." Straightening, he began to look over the treasures they had amassed. "All thanks to our..little toy here." Pointing to an orb around his neck that served as a necklace; it glowed faintly, bearing the same creamy color as the full moon.
Wave finally hops off her board and kicks it to an upright position, now takes it under her arm once again,"So what will we do with beauty and the beast now?"
"Eh..were they even much of a fight? I mean..I figured I'd let you do whatever you wanted." Pausing at the thought. "We could always beat the living tar out of him, be sure to set him in his place and all.." Looking over at the dog, collapsed and panting on the ground.
"As a human, he`s of no threat. Though he`s still hard-headed..."
Holds her big wrench flat in her hand that she used earlier and looks at it thoughtfully,"He took a blow to the back of the head and didn`t fall."
"Ah well.. he can't do anything to us here. Hit him as many times as you like" Looking over the Master Emerald. "Now just how to get this to become a reality.." Storm, not being much of a talker, just stood there and looked to the two of them.
Wave, as she usually does, makes a comment to Storm (the two of them`s friendship hangs by a thread),"What? You finally have nothing to say, Storm?"
"..." He just growled slightly towards Wave, looking to Jet. "..I'll do whatever, whenever.."
What will be his usual statement, ever willing to execute any order Jet would give him. 'Just hang tight, look pretty..or go practice your moves.' Looking over at Wave. 'What do you think of me bringin' up our own city..'
Wave looks back at Jet,"I`m excited for it. It`d be great to have a place where we`ll be recognized as the fastest instead of that Sonic guy."
"Yeah, that blue-punk's over-rated.." He had the power to tap the powers of the Master Emerald without having to touch it, concentrating for a long time; suddenly, granite, marble, and concrete seemed to come from nowhere. From it's energy, he started to fashion three large statues of the three of them, defiantly looking onwards with their boards; made of marble, he opened his eyes looking it over. "'Ey, I'm startin' to get the hang of this."
Wave smiles,"Great likenesses."
She leans over to the dog with another devious smile,"And look! You get to be the first outsider to see it!"
She laughs and stands back up with Jet.
Wave snaps her fingers,"Oh! That reminds me. Shadow and Maria had switched species when they came here. Was that your intention, Jet? Cuz I thought you said you wanted Maria to be a chicken and Shadow to be...something else, I forgot."
"That seriously worked? Wow..I was just trying to see the limits of what this baby can do." Patting the Emeralds side, then grinning. "So how'd that work out; he's not a threat no more, like you said huh. And it's not like his girls gonna be doing anything.." Looking over at the dog, he went to add. "Oh, and let's keep poochie here..just as a joke. I think it's great."
Wave looks at the dog,"Ok, but I ain`t picking up his poop."
She looks at Jet,"We`ll leave that to Storm."
She walks to the other side of Jet and puts her hand on her hip. Her hip shifts to the side as how girls often do,"Yeah it doesn`t seem like Shadow will be much of a threat. His powers ain`t working with that human body of his."
"Even better than I thought it'd be." Grinning over at Storm, then back to Wave. "..Anyways, why don't you go invite all your friends, and their friends.. we're gonna have a big party tonight. Just give me a couple hours..I'm gonna build a big city right here from scratch. You know how to..bring up a port, don't you?"
"You`ll have to re-explain. The last time you were explaining it to us, Storm and I got involved in an argument."
"Just imagine this place, raise yer hand.. like this." Starting to display, he began to concentrate, suddenly erecting a fairly sized portal. "It's real simple..I just don't wanna leave it open yet. Any sad sap could wander in here.."
Wave nods,"Right. Got it."
"Seeya.. I swear, you'll be loving this place when you get back." Turning back, he began preparing construction.
Wave gives Jet a smile, one that`s a little different than the way she usually smiles,"I`m sure I will."
She leaps through the portal with her gear board in tow.
It was several hours later, Shadow had mostly recovered.. at least, to the point he could move. He coughed slightly, rising up as he looked around, then cringed and felt his head; a large head ache. Looking over at Maria, he looked at himself..he was still human, and she was still a hedgehog. "..Sigh."
"...." Shadow took off his shirt, folding it up to fashion a sort of cushion; this, he set in the stead of his arm, that initially provided her a rest. Getting up, he started to walk over towards the pull of water, loudly drinking a gulp-fulls of water.
Maria is currently engulfed of dreams of the past, of her times with Shadow on the Arc. This current dream of when they played hide n seek in the vents, being that she was reminded of them when they were on the Arc earlier. When her dream gets to the part where Shadow got stuck in the smaller vents and panicked, this is where Maria wakes. She stirs suddenly and the shirt falls from it`s place, flopping on the ground next to her. Sitting up on her own, she looks around her surroundings and realizes it was just a dream.
"..You're awake.." Shadow spoke, shirtless, looking over at her. Slowly, he started to walk over to her, kneeling down next to her. "..Are you feeling any better, is your fever down..?" Laying a hand on her forehead, he drew his face closer to hers; being a human made his expression seem different. Instead of glaring most of the time, Shadow now seemed to have a neutral expression more often than not. There was a gentle soft look now, though..youthful, almost like a childs.
Maria can`t keep her small blush from coming up. She, being normally a human, has a good sense of human beauty. She doesn`t turn away from him or try to back away from the closeness between her and Shadow. Since Maria`s eyes are now the anthro hedgehog eyes, they give away more openly her emotions as they are locked onto Shadow`s still red eyes,"Yes, I am feeling a little better now."
The fever has gone down since before. Her forehead feels cooler now.
After a while, an odd expression crossed his face, he suddenly looked away; she could see a redness in his cheeks. "Ahh..that's..great to hear, Maria.." Inhaling, he lifted up his shirt from the floor, dusting it off and putting it back on. "..I'm going to look around, and try to find you something to eat..stay here, alright?" Looking back to her with a concerned look.
Maria looks up at Shadow and gives him a single nod,"All right."
Nodding slowly towards her, he started to walk out into the area; looking out into the distance, it's fast turning evening..he suddenly grasps his forehead in amazement to see a large, bustling city! With electricity but a healthy mixture of old-world charm, it was a mix of the old and the new. It stretched out wide and tall, touching the sky..He slowly began to approach it, clenching his hands into fists as he expected trouble.
