Miles smiled at the shiba.

"Alright, but remember, unless Above or Hubert says otherwise, you have no powers and are very likely to get yourself killed," he said, "And we don't need any more ghosts around here, just be careful."

The explosion had another effect on entities. If anyone was feeling in distress, doubt, fear, hatred, or any other negative emotion, it was overwhelmed briefly by nothing but pure love. It didn't leave them in that state, it was more of a wave washing over them, then they were left to make up their own minds.

A slow clap can be heard from behind Miles, just outside of his sphere
“I suppose that was a B- , for effort” the wolf’s voice was full of mockery, as she stood there as if nothing from their last confrontation ever happened.
“anyway, you kids better run back to town if you want to live” she said, as a torrent of whispers echoed from the forest, and before their very eyes, a wall of crimson fog rose from the forest, rushing toward them, getting increasingly faster.


Rena shakes her throbbing head, attention turning to the wolf. "Ah ain't just some kid, wolf," she shoots, stepping over next to Miles. "You're right that ah ain't got magic or psychic whatsit, Miles—but they do. Heavenly being or not, ah don't want to see if they can hurt ya, and we ain't got time to wait for Hubert, Heaven, or whatever other powers that be might throw in cards." She takes in a deep breath and takes a defensive stance.

"Ah'll keep her aim off ya, you just handle makin' sure she ain't gonna keep rearin' up again."

"Do you think you can fight me and and get away from that fog in 40 seconds?" The wolf asked with a smirk, her hands on her hip as a loud creaking sound booming above them, as if the sky itself is being pressed and bent by some unknown forces "Make that 20, better choose quickly"

A weak, distant voice echoed in Levi’s ears “Brave…..Hardship…..Worthy……Chose” it said, sounding like whoever it came from finally got their long awaited rest, then strange feeling washed over Levi, as if an invisible shroud had been lifted from his shoulders, and his mind no longer clouded by the tempting thoughts.

"Guess I should head back, now," the cat said, confident he wouldn't do anything stupid now.
"yeah, go save the world for your new family. and your old one may come to visit." his mother replied.
and Levi exited the portal back where he began... and didn't like what he saw.

A distant voice echoed in Buster’s ears “To claim the power of those who were forsaken, to carve a future for those within your heart, even if your path will echo of their rejection. You who have the want of a hunter, speak your acceptance, and the first step of your journey shall be yours” it said, each words filled with conviction and determination.

"Stay out of my way, Tara," the rabbit nearly growled.
"Buster, you aren't being yourself," the spirit plead.
"I don't even know what myself is, how can you?" he asked.
"Buster, I-" "No. You knew me as a carefree kid, that used be myself. Then you died and screwed up my life, left me thinking I was crazy for seeing you. Then I was a cold, manipulative ******* who didn't give a **** about friends, that's the me you just sat back and watched for years. Then Janus broke my emotional shield, mostly cause he ******* looks like you, my dead best friend, might i remind you? yes I have noticed that, I'm not dumb. and I'm all lovey dovey with him, fighting for love, and that's been me for a couple days. So now there's a new me, it's a combination of all three. I don't care what you think, and I'm being cold and emotionless for love, risking everything. You know how that feels. you don't get to say I can't make a noble sacrifice when you doing just that is the reason I'm even here."
Buster's words hurt her. she didn't know what to say. "Buster... I'm sorry."
"No, I'm sorry. cause I'm going to get that power. and I'm going to do it RIGHT NOW!"

Serence Frostbite Wrote:
“It was never about power, was it?” asked a white fox, appearing before the wolf-bear. Meri could probably recognize her as the fox who approached her at that farmer’s house
“It was never about revenge. It was your love for your children that bound you to this world. A life unjustly taken, broken futures withered without one to nurture them. Like us, you want to right this wrong, not for you, but for those young, innocent lives she said, approaching the wolf-bear. Her voice, as well as her eyes, were gentle, caring, with a hint of sadness, like from an old friend who spoke of a loss from their past, one that they have come to accept. Stopping a little further than an arm’s length from the wolf-bear, the vixen extended one of her arm, with her palm up toward them as she continued, now sounding more confident, the sadness now faded, making place for a hint of hope and determination, like a leader talking to her companion: “This is what we offer, not a haven of eternal bliss for those whose lives had ended, but a second chance here in this land of the living, with all the joy and hardship that makes life the miracle that it is. A world where your children never lost their mother, a world where everyone gets a chance to strive for their own future, you, your children, and many generations after them. To this end, we need all the help we can get. Will you help us?”

"We can't turn on everyone like this. Not for empty promises," the wolf half argued. "there isn't proof what she says is possible." but it was too late. the wolf-bear was already slowly reaching towards the outstretched arm. Janus would need a burst of power to overcome Meri's will.

"Er, yeah, Duke's right. I'll tell you on the way down. Let's get in there!"

"Oh, unknowable mist doomsday. That's a situation 24, so we'll need Bunker C," she closed the first trap door and moved towards another bookshelf, opening another trap door to another set of stairs. "hurry up and get in, we should have a month of breathable air and supplies if needed."

"Actually Rena, she might have a point," he said, grabbing her arm, "I think we need to head back and regroup at your mother's place. Sorry, that's all I can think of right now. That fog is deadly and there's others in the way. I can save them. You'll get to fight and be a hero later, but right now, I think it's best time to go." Miles looked at her sadly.

Do that and you're dead. Miles thought to Buster, having enhanced hearing as well. You go after that power and your under the wills of it's entities. You won't be yourself anymore. Oh, they'll let you do what you want, but then after that everyone dies. Right now? The world isn't such a bad place. Afterwards? It'll be so much worse. Now you can help change the world and make it a better place and stay and fight. Afterwards? You want hell on Earth than that's what you'll get. You want murder and revenge to be commonplace rather than kindness and forgiveness than that is what you'll get. If you want second chances and liaisons to give way to beheadings and lynchings than that's what you'll get. The world will be full of Busters and Hunters and Taras and it'll all be YOUR fault and EVERYONE will know it. And the last thing Janus will see of his boyfriend is a demonic, tormented chained hell rabbit descending into judgement. Do you really think Janus will last long in that world without his beloved? And before you think it, there is no see you in hell. In the final judgement, you are all tormented alone. Never knowing what happened to the other. Or whether or not he found another, someone stronger willed than you.

She has one thing right Meri. Life is a miracle. Look about you. Every snowflake is unique. Every pine is different. Every bird has a unique call. Life goes on, flows, and changes. When I lost my body it was a different kind of life. But I could still act, be me, have a say, and do some good in the world. Killing all life so that some may live is the very definition of evil. It isn't life's fault your cubs were killed, but fear. Fear causes people to act irrationally, out of confusion, not of malice or hatred. While it may not be a living future, with all the benefits that entails, your cubs are still enjoying a celestial life. They've missed you and they love you. You are so close to enjoying an eternal life with them Without any more pain, any more sorrow. They want their mother to be with them. Can't you feel the pull of the mother towards her cubs? If you do this do you really think you'll be with your cubs in the end? Your being cruelly manipulated by the power's entities for their own gains. Restarting life means ending all the current ones. And this time, not only will you be taken away from your cubs, you'll never see how their lives turn out. You'll never see their cubs. You'll never see them grow up. Once you fulfill your lust the power's entities will use you and drag you into down into judgement. Then you'll never see your cubs again. Or know what happened to them. Right now though? Right now you can be the heroine mom they want you to be. Right now you can refuse the urge of death and join your cubs in celestial life. Right now you can give them big ol' bear hugs and kisses and let them feel your love. Right now you can show them that being a real adult means forgiveness and resisting the temptations of evil. Right now you can save the life of every other cub being born all over the world this instant and truly show a mother's love to them all. Prove it to your cubs that you are the world's greatest mother and resist this temptation Meri. Will you please? Miles pleaded with Meri.

The moment Buster finished saying that, his body quickly faded away like a thin cloud of mist being dispersed by a gust of wind in front of everyone's eyes. In Buster's point of view however, he found himself suddenly falling down, through layers of clouds as Miles' voice echoed in his mind

Eventually, the clouds parted, showing that Buster's near the ground, but he wasn't falling, simply floating down. Below him was a small hill, covered with snow and white, strange yet beautiful flowers. On top of the hill, there were two small gravestones next to each other, and a white vixen, wearing a long, white cloak, seemingly praying before them.
As his feet touched the ground, the voice that was calling him spoke once more, but not from his mind.
"It seem you have accepted the call of the hunt...." the vixen said, standing up and turning around to look at him with her sad, yet determined, crimson eyes "Buster"

"You who wish not to walk our path....." The vixen said, as the wolf-bear's palm touched hers, and with one gentle motion, led Meri's soul out of Janus' body. "....you need not follow" she continued, as Meri now stood in front of Janus, and strangely enough, the bear could felt the sensation of touch from the vixen's palm, as if she was still alive
"Heed my word, bearer of the Hunter's mark: Return to your loved ones, and spend your time with them in their last moments. This is all you can do for them."

"well that settles it then" the wolf said as she started fading away "See you kids inside, better run by the way"

"Be a he–" Rena shoves Miles off. "It ain't nothin' about bein' a hero, Miles, she starts, turning her glare to him. "It's about doin' the things ah know. Ah know fighting, ah know the wilds, ah know ferals, an' ah know what leadin' means, 'specially in failure. Ah ain't out here bein' a hero. Ah'm out here bein' a hunter, tryin' to keep my people safe. An' that's something ah will gladly die for, like my mother before me."

"Beats dyin' hidden in a corner an' whishin' ah'd tried somethin'," she adds, walking towards the fog.

Miles sighed.

Well, can't say that I didn't try. I guess it's best left to them anyway. I guess I done trucked up big time. I guess you were right, this world isn't worth fighting for anymore. Guess I best watch the world burn from a distance. And I guess I'll be seeing SOME of you, at least, real soon, I suppose. Sorry for interfering in your affairs I guess. I was just trying to offer powerful help and protection, and a solution. IF you get to the mana pool, be sure and drain it. I'll keep the shield around you Rena, but that's all I can do anymore. Try not to be too mad at me when you get up here. Be seeing you. Miles thought to them all.

And with that, Miles too, vanished.

Ray is more surprised by the fact that he's not surprised at all than the fact that Nettie has several bunkers.
"How many bunkers do you have?" he queries, clattering down the stairs.

As she's jostled around, Lilly's thoughts turn to her oblivious family at home.
Lord Hubert? she thinks, hoping the dragon will hear. I'm ready to make my wish.

Despite himself, Ray chuckles.
"Very clever!" he grins, carefully standing Lilly on her paws.
"Um... Do you think I have time to run next door and grab my parents before the cloud gets here?"

~~~~~~~~
It's my family, Hubert. My owners have a two year old son. He's far too young to die. My wish is that he survives this and so do my parents so they can raise him. I don't care what happens to me as long as they're okay. If someone has to die let it be me instead of little Jimmy.
So saying, the ferret pings a thought off her companions to get an idea of the layout of the new strangely echoing place they're in.

"She's going into the fog" the golden spirit on top of the town said
"Guess the kit failed, where is he?" the wolf said, appearing in the middle of the town, where strange no town people seem to be around.
"Not here. I can get the girl-"
"No time." the wolf objected, drawing a circle around like she was starting a dance as black smokes started spreading around her "shroud the town before the kits manage to force my paws"

The fog quickly engulfed Rena. As she continued forward, she could see the fog passing over her, deflected by a small, glowing barrier around her. Yet even with this protection. She's still reminded of moment in her life that she wished she could have been more, could have been better.....
Then.....the fog gave way, and around her was a thick, dark forest, under a blue night sky, with two moon, one red, and one blue. All around her were distant sounds of howling, screaming, of struggles and of death. In front of her, seeming very, very far away, a spark of bright light like the sun.

Those who answered the call were never meant to arrive here, not until there's only one remain. However, I suppose this is one thing I can agree with my other self, the avoidance of unneeded sacrifices"

"It is a possibility, but with considerable difficulty......and opposition" the vixen replied to Meri's question, turning her attention back to Janus "Of course not. You will fight, no matter how inevitable the outcome might be, but staying here will only lead to your own downfall. Return to your home, and perhaps you will meet us again" she said with a hint of melancholy in her voice, as the red fog rose over them

It wasn't a resolution, nothing was brought back to normal...just everything stopped. As it was.
The now immense and imposing dragon spoke, without any trace of ire or discomfort. "I hope you will forgive this intromission, contenders, but an innocent mortal's wish, the wish that her family be safe from this war, allowed me this intervention. For in order to save a mortal life, I cannot allow the chaos to proceed unidsturbed.
"I am not here to godmod you, to impose my will upon yours, for it would be a mockery of your own free will,and even worse, of your own fate. The fate each one of us is bound and permitted to build...BUT, now my charge has asked for a divine favor, and I am also entitled to respect it, even if it meant interfering with your quarrel.
"So I ask you: rather than seeking the path of chaos and sorrow, what could you do so that innocents would stop suffering for your actions, without giving up your goals? Mind me, I am not judging you, I am beyond that. I just ask you to show that you are better than your own instincts."

"I don't know, oh great one" the wolf said loudly and sarcastically, dark mass of energy still circle around her feet "Can we get all philosophical AFTER we take this town away from The Hunt's Call?"

<I thought I've been pretty clear about my goal here, but fine. I'm trying to stop all of this so innocents don't get hurt, or at the least delay it so someone else can do so. If my attempts are bumbling into it as blind as you left me for, then why don't you actually help me out like I've been asking?> the shiba replies bitterly.

"Because 'taking side' is not what the Fate of this situation is about. There are conflicting interests, and they degenerated into a reality-threatening situation, in which the conflicting sides want to smite each other. What you should be telling me and asking yourselves is: *why* are you doing this?"
"I don't understand your words," Janus said. By now, he had separated himself from the bear-spirit and the Hunter had receded as well."And why are you doing all of this *now* of all times? Surely you were out to protect me before..."
The majestic figure shook his head. "You did not ask.
The wolfdog's pupils shrunk. "...wut?
"Lily had one miracle available, just like you had. She asked the right thing. You asked for the power to join the battle, I granted that wish. If you had asked for your mate what Lily asked for her beloved ones, this would have been stopped before".
Janus looked almost comical in his attempts to open his mouth and come up with a smart counterpoint...then he gritted his teeth and facepawlmed "Drat..!"

The dragon shrunk back to the familiar small size, before perching on Janus' shoulder. "It will do."

"I'm already considering other paths, now that my head's cleared," Buster answered the dragon. "I'm stalling and getting more information. Though I don't really have an escape plan, so I may need some help."

"My actions are to stop the death of innocents at the hands of the humans," Meri replied. "I can sense this vixen has known pain similar to mine, and she has the power to end it."

Janus hugged the rabbit tenderly. "I know I made some...mistakes in managing this situation but please, include me in your plans."

Hubert nodded. "Once, before ascending, I used to be likewise emotionally involved. I had reached a stage where my magic could make the difference, and...in a couple occasions, it did. Much to my regret, I must add, even if I now know it was my destiny to err in order to understand." Suddenly, that chronal limbo transformed into a fresco, an endless scenery of nature at her most violent state, from natural disasters to predators and prey, between animal and plants and bacteria...
"Humans are regarded as the true monsters of nature, those who pervert her supposed 'order' leaving only rubbles in their wake.
"But there is more than that to this. Other animals in this world can be equally cruel, and destructive, given the chance. No one has a moral ground in this, humans are only better in doing their job: eat, drink, reproduce, nesting. And in this they create a temporary imbalance in their favor. And of course, being the butt end of this joke is cause of rancor for all other species. it is like when poor people say money is of no help to happiness, but would do anything to get money.
"But, even with their knowledge, humans cannot see their own fate as species, all of their roads are open. They could colonize space, they could recreate the life lost so far by their own hands, they could evolve into something entirely different, they could extinguish themselves and much of the life on this world, before new life form will take over.
"This is their and your fate. No amount of magic intervention can interfere with that. You all have a right to fight for what is right, to defend your peers, to protect innocent lives, but magic is not a bomb to be thrown on the battlefield, rather a delicate tool to craft. Using magic to a massive level will only cause other magical forces to try and counterbalance the event, leading thus to further chaos and to the disruption of one's goals.
"That is why you all need to set a new path, taking ponderate decisions. I promise I will not arbitrarily interfere, I don't need to: I am beyond mortal needs and I know that in the end..."
another gesture, the fresco, the chronal limbo...
Nothing.
Nothing at all. No light. No matter. Absolute absence. Silence was like a solid thing, an element in itself.
"Our dreams, our hopes, our love and our hate, the victories and the falls, everything ends here, at the end of time. This is the final reward."
Janus felt like suffocating. He felt like holding Buster even stronger to protect him from this thing that had no name, from the final horror... "If it is so..." he managed to say with a whimper. "Why? Why care? Why...live at all?" he knew he was blabbering, but he felt crushed by something that didn't belong to existence. In fact, it felt so bad that even the sight of his enemies made him feel like reaching to them for comfort. How could *anyone* feel hatred in front of...this?
Hubert nodded. "Because this will happen in a length of time you can't even number. This is the finality of the Multiverse, but your lves are still here and now, and they matter, all of them.
"That is why I ask you to partake in a new direction. Not one of you can know what the future history will bring. Those of you who see can only look at a part of it, at possibilities, nothing is definite in life. Only the Finality is certain. Those of you who weld the power to change things, act in wisdom, not in selfishness."

So saying, the ferret pings a thought off her companions to get an idea of the layout of the new strangely echoing place they're in.

Hubert nodded wisely. "I was hoping you would ask that. SO BE IT!" The dragon's eyes shone like two stars
And then it just...

In an instant, both Buster and Meri found themselves back in the middle of the town, with the vixen still holding Meri's hand, as they stood behind Buster, facing the dragon

Those of you who weld the power to change things, act in wisdom, not in selfishness."

The vixen stayed silent, watching as visions already foretold unfolded in front of her eyes, until silence was all that remain.
"Is it wisdom to choose inaction, when you could've done something? Is it selflessness to decide, by yourself, that all those whose future was, and will be lost, deserve no better fate than that which was not decided by themselves, just because eons from their time, oblivion is all that awaits ?" she then spoke loudly to the dragon, before turning to the crowd, pets and wild animals like, and continued.
"Ask yourself, everyone, why did you involve yourselves in this? Was it to protect the entire world, or some distant future, or some kind of balance of the universe? Or did you just want to protect your family, your loved ones who's living right now from the lost each and all of you have felt before."
She then looked slowly over them, directly into their eyes, one by one. Though still calm, the fervor within her is becoming clearer with each words
"To see a loved one suffer, their lives taken by another is a harrowing thing, one that everyone standing here endured. Remember how powerless you felt, how you wish it would have been different. Now ask yourself: if you have a choice, what would it be? If one must die, would it be the wolf who otherwise would continue hunting and killing others like they did your friend, or would it still be your friend, and all other preys like it is right now? Would it be the beastly predator, feasting upon blood and fear to quell not their hunger, but merely their bloodlust, or the unknown victims lost their lives to a rampaging phantom? Now, as it was then, you have a choice, one must die. Would it be all the humans, who you love and care for, who you see as family, or would it be one fox who would otherwise end it all? Answer this, and you will see why we're doing this."

ooc: Yes, it is a ruse.

A small, voice came out from the distant.

"Before you answer, I'd like to ask you something, you vexating vixen," it said, "What gives YOU the right to decide the fate of the world, and humanity? Is it power? IS it this power that I oops *kerplunk flush*. Oh dear."

Rena blinks at the cat. "... What did he drop?" she inquires, looking at the others. "'Cause if we're done now, ah'd like to put forward the notion of askin' why we did this myself."

Levi shrugged at the question of what the ghost cat had dropped.
Buster however was more focused on the Vixen's words. "you say it was my choice to come to you, and it was," Buster admitted. "you talk of choice, but the only way to ensure what you promise is to take all choice from others. Why do we deserve choice and they don't? Of course I'd prefer Tara still be alive, but it was her choice to save me, and our choice to play in woods we knew were dangerous. and it was a choice that let me meet Janus, and I don't regret any choices that lead to him. Everyone deserves that choice even if some abuse it."

"I am my own paradox," Hubert answered the vixen. "When I ascended, I did something no one had ever done, I had become one with everything. And this puts me in a unique condition, literally.
"My whim is my will, my will is my action. Just talking to you is an influence. Imagine for a moment what would be of your world, should I decide to run it as I saw fit, reregardless of everyone's will or fate.
"It would be *my* world, just an extension of me. And I did that already: I experimented, i created and eventually I failed. Because only experience can teach wisdom. observe!"

The scene all around them shifted once again, everything became a display of stars, a splendid tapestry of gems thick in the sky.
And at the center of this tapestry...a star like our Sun, diffusing its warm light in a system of 5 rocky planets, 5 planets like Earth, ranging from a tropical world to an icy world, passing through an Eden world and two other gems orbiting each other.
"The system of Salarius," Hubert said.
Janus was speechless, though because of an opposite feeling this way. He was rapt. "It is...beautiful."
