PostSubject: Behind the Scenes   4/4/2013, 4:35 am

Florence, having recently collected the soul of Harvest, decided to investigate the sinister aura coming from the floor of the lab. He sensed that it was coming from deep beneath the ground, far deeper than he expected the building to go. Having just collected a soul, he reawakened some of his old powers, so he figured he could just warp down there rather than looking for stairs or something boring like that. A mist of grey energy enveloped him and he was in a dimly lit room.

Something began to move in the shadows and a frail old man began to walk towards him.

"Oh please sir, you've got to help me." The man said. "I've been trapped down here for far too long, I doubt I have much time left for this world.

Florence assumed this man wanted him to end it, like Harvest had previous asked him to do. "What can I do to help you?" he asked.

"Well, you see, I want to see my son for one last time before I pass on. Now he's been gone for some time himself, but judging from your cloak and how you just appeared like that I take it you must be one of them Reaper types."

"I see. What was his name."

"They called him Scott."

The name seemed familiar to Florence, but he couldn't tell why. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a human soul. "I can't bring him back to life, but if you have a charm or something..."

"This should do." The man pulled out a talisman. It was similar to a necklace or a pendant, but in the shape of a crescent moon. Florence infused the soul into the talisman and the moon began to glow. The man thanked Florence before stalking off into the shadows.

Florence was about to head off to find the source of the evil presence himself, when something dripped from the roof and onto his sleeve. It looked green at first, but then it became grey and dripped down from his sleeve to the floor. He watched it as it began to slid along the floor.

Florence followed the... thing for a while until he lost it. The evil felt really close now. Suddenly a bright light shot on and he found himself face-to-face with a large tube of green liquid. There was what seemed to have once been a man floating inside.

"Hello Reaper." An unexpected voice greeted.

Florence looked around before noticing the speakers on the the bottom of the tube, next to something like a control panel.

"You must be Florence. I've heard quite a bit about you."

"And judging from the amount of sheer evil radiating from you, you must be-"

"Andrew Gustav, but please, call me Andrew."

Gustav? Florence wondered. "So you're still alive? I thought Illyena and Dark-"

A chuckle came through the speakers. "You mean to say that Dark really thought I was dead? I guess she must be a bigger fool than I anticipated. As for Sonya, she was in on it the whole time."

"What about Marissa, was that part of your plan too?"

"Actually, no. She was acting on her own free will. In fact, she was more of a threat to me at the time than anyone else, that's why Sonya tried to kill her."

Florence couldn't believe it. Had everyone but him seen this coming? Still, something was bugging him. "That weapon Illyena had, where did she get it? It was a Reaper's weapon, no mortal should have had it in their possession."

"That's quite simple. I'm sure you've heard of Cassandra, this area's previous Reaper. She was the owner of the weapon at the time, however, due to a certain ritual, she could no longer use it. She passed it, along with some of her powers, to her closest friend, Glenn Malark. The poor fool didn't know what to do with it, so I took it from him."

"And then you had his own wife kill him?!?"

"Let me tell you something boy. Ever since this place has been built we've done two things: make weapons and search for the secret to eternal life. Now Malark, he thought he had found it. In truth he had. But no one warned him beforehand that immortality is both a gift and a curse. I did what any good friend would do and saved him. Of course, if you try to get in my way, I may have to save you as well."

Florence took a step back. "That won't happen. Dark had Soul's Bane. Once she finds out you're alive, she'll kill you I'm sure."

There was laughter. "We'll just have to see, my boy."

A wave of grey energy washed over Florence and he found himself back in the lobby. He figured it was in his best interest to get as far away from here as possible. He walked out the front door. Shortly after he heard someone calling to him...

----------------------------------

...Florence figured that he had managed to warp a safe distance away from Dark for the time being. He looked down at the palm of his hand to see a black ring marking appear there. It burned with surprising intensity and he knew it was also draining him of all his power. That was the penalty for a Reaper who broke their promise.

He looked at the simple gold band he wore on his other hand. Rings were neither charms nor artifacts, but he knew if he could bond Marissa's soul to something it would keep him from dying a slow and painful death. As he power began to fade he removed the ring and tried to bind it.

There was a burst of light and for a moment he thought he had failed, but the burning in his hand soon ebbed away. He looked at the ring and remembered the only promise he had ever made. I'll never let anything bad happen to you, trust me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So there, that's what happened while he was off camera. It's only slightly important to any real plot, what with handing over Scott's soul and Gustav being alive and all.

Oh yeah, this is also why Florence never actually promised Dark anything. Because he knew he couldn't do whatever she said, especially if it involved killing Marissa.

Cause Reapers can't break their promises.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part two:

Florence awoke to find himself staring at the roof of what seemed to be a hut. He looked over to see the only other inhabitant was a boy with white hair. He sat up, not entirely sure what had happened. There were voices outside, but he couldn't tell what they were saying.

Florence got up and walked out of the hut to see some rather odd looking people. They were dressed in clothes that definitely weren't from this century and they carried weird weapons. One of them seemed to notice him and walked over.

"Hey. You must be that guy Owen found. I take it you're a Reaper."

Florence nodded. "Who exactly are you people anyways?"

"Oh right. I suppose most people would wonder that. We are the Dragonslayers."

Florence chuckled a little to himself.

"What?"

"It's just that, you know, dragons died out a really long time ago. Even children know that."

"Perhaps you do not understand. We are an ancient order, dedicated to maintaining the balance of mana in the world. Besides, even though most dragons have vanished, they are far from extinct. As a matter of fact, there is a facility in this very forest that houses the egg of a dragon."

"So, if you know where this egg is, then why haven't you, you know.... slayed it?"

"The facility is guarded by a powerful spell, and the one who keeps the spell active is a rather difficult to kill person."

Florence thought about this for a moment. "You mean Gustav? Gustav has a dragon's egg?!?"

"So you are familiar with him? Maybe you can help us out then."

Florence knew he would regret agreeing to something like this. Still, these people were an ancient order dedicated to preserving something or other. He agreed to help them.

"We need you to enter Gustav's lair, find the dragon's egg and destroy it. That should be simple enough."

"How will I find it though?" Florence asked. He had been in their before, but had never seen anything resembling a dragon's egg.

"You can sense souls, correct."

"Well yeah, but-"

"Just look for a soul that emits a fierce and strong energy. That should be the dragon's egg."

"And how do I get to the facility from here?"

"Just head that way," the Dragonslayer said, pointing to the east.

Florence nodded and headed off in that direction. As he started to get far away from the Dragonslayer's camp he felt a strange energy wash over him. He turned around to see that the camp had completely vanished. He figured he'd worry about things like that later. He had to fulfill his promise to the Dragonslayer for the time being.

As he entered the lab, he could feel the same overpowering evil energy that he had felt before. He searched for a different energy, matching the one he had been told about. He felt it faintly. He wondered if there truly was a dragon there. Grey energy washed over him as he tried to bring himself to the location the soul was.

He found himself in a corridor. The energy was still father away, but something seemed to be interfering with his powers. He followed the supposed dragon's soul until the corridor opened up into a large room. An orange oval-shaped crystal sat on a pedestal. He sensed a dark red soul inside of it.

The egg seemed to be calling out to him. He picked it up in both hands and felt its power.

"I suppose, even in all your years, you've never seen a dragon before, have you?"

The voice made Florence jump and the egg slipped from his hands. It shattered on the floor. Florence turned around slowly to see a green haired man similar to the one he had seen in the tube earlier standing behind him.

"Hello Florence."

Florence backed away until be bumped into the pedestal.

Gustav looked at the broken egg on the floor and then back to Florence. The red soul Florence had seen earlier flew towards Gustav and he caught it in his hand. He tossed the soul to Florence.

"You need this to survive, do you not?"

Florence realized that he was right. His power was running out and he needed a soul to restore it, still he didn't know if he could use a dragon's soul. The soul was unaware of his doubts. It hurled itself into Florence's chest and he began to feel his power returning to him.

"Now then, I do believe I warned you to stay away." Gustav said.

Florence looked at him for a moment before realizing that he was about to be skewered. He dodged to the side and Gustav's blade embedded itself into the stone pedestal that once housed the egg of a dragon. Florence was still getting used to the amount of power the dragon's egg had given him. Even as one of the Twelve he had never experienced this much power.

Gustav pulled his sword from the pedestal and looked over at Florence. "Are you going to fight boy?"

It suddenly occurred to Florence that he really hated Gustav's attitude. He never seemed angry, but he was always talking down. Nothing seemed to faze him at all. Florence summoned his scythe.

"I see." Gustav swung his blade, aiming for Florence's throat. Florence saw the blade coming at him and noticed it had a strange glow. He stepped back quickly. This sword seemed to be another Reaper killing weapon. Florence himself used to own one, but when he lost his rank as one of the Twelve it was confiscated.

"Where did you get that sword?"

"You like it?" Gustav asked as he slashed horizontally. Florence dodged. "I got it from an old friend of mine. He's dead now."

Florence swung his scythe at Gustav, but it was blocked by the sword. "This is Soul Eater, the blade of number eleven, Luther." Gustav pushed the scythe away easily. "I'm sure you remember him."

Florence did indeed remember him. He wondered how it was that both Luther and Cassandra were gone now. They were elite Reapers, similar to him, and had special power that those outside of the Twelve could never comprehend.

Florence was snapped out of his thought as Gustav's sword nearly ran him through for the second time. He knocked it away with the handle of his scythe and swung at Gustav. The blade of his scythe hit Gustav and dug into his flesh. Usually he would have been able to slice someone clean in half, but Gustav was different.

Gustav noticed that Florence's blade had gotten stuck, leaving him vulnerable. Being made of slime had its advantages. He swung the blade at Florence who put up his hand to block it.

"Reaper art: Shadow Blast."

Strange runes and symbols appeared around Florence's hand and a burst of dark grey energy shot forth, knocking the sword from Gustav's hand. Florence quickly pulled his scythe from Gustav's side.

"It would seem that the dragon's soul had allowed you to reawaken as one of the Twelve." Gustav said. "Your weapon shall make a nice addition to my collection."

Florence looked at his scythe. It seemed normal. The blade hadn't changed at all. I guess it still needs time to wake up. Gustav went to pick up his blade. Florence melted into the floor and appeared in between him and the weapon. He kicked it away quickly.

Gustav looked at him and then at the sword. He wouldn't be able to simply run for it. Florence was through with this fight. With his powers back at full he figured it was time to end this. He twirled his scythe like a giant fan and then caught it with both hands and raised it above his head.

"Ancient Reaper art: Blade of the Undying."

He slammed his scythe into the ground. A ring appeared around Gustav with similar runes and symbols to the previous one. A massive burst of dark grey energy shot forth from the inside of the ring, completely destroying the body of Gustav.

Florence approached the oddly green soul and picked it up in his hand.

"Foolish boy. Do not think I will die so easily."

Florence had no idea where the voice came from. Before he had a chance to respond a spike shot out of the green soul and pierced his chest. He felt weak all of the sudden.

"How... did you?"

Gustav chuckled. "It'll take far more than that to kill me."

Florence gripped the large spine in his hand and snapped it off.

"Oh? Do you still live? Are you not ready to die?"

Florence coughed. "You should know better. Reapers don't die. Even if you kill me here, I will be back. And when I come back, know this. I will kill you."

"Right, I forgot, the lifestream and all that. Don't worry, I'll make sure this is the last time we ever meet."

Countless blades shot forth from the green soul and Florence coughed up blood. The blades hadn't just stabbed into him, they had gone clean through. He could tell this was it. The first blade had done a good job of weakening him, and now he was going to die."

"Reaper art: Soul Split..."

Florence could barely manage the words. A ring appeared around him on the floor and there was a faint light. Florence's eyes suddenly became cold and lifeless. The blades receded back into the green ball and Florence collapsed to the ground.

-------------------------

A boy who seemed to be around sixteen was watching from the shadows. He wore a glowing crescent pendant and had green hair.

"Son, be a good boy and go collect his scythe for me. Also, he should have a gold ring. I need that as well."

The boy did as he was told. He seemed to be more of a shell then a real person.

Gustav chuckled. "That makes four. Still eight to go."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's the end. I don't think there's anything else. Especially because Florence died.

Like, Florence did just die in this topic...

But he isn't really dead. But also, he isn't that teenager in the cave.

Yeah. I'm trying not to actually explain what's going on too much, cuz then there would be no point to actually finding out in the rp though.
