STILL WORKING ON THE CHAPTER... God this stuff takes forever. And great to have you back lbu, but I'm taken
"Yes, Tabuu does still have the same goal he always had." Gaondorf replied in an impatient tone. "But even he knows we will not be able to defeat Nefirus if we don't work together. And then, once Nefirus is dead, then we'll go back to being enemies. Even you should relize that Nefirus is a far greater threat than Tabbu. Now about Master Hand... Tabbu believes it is possible to resurrect him. The same way I resurrected Tabbu."
Link perked up. "You might be able to bring Master Hand back?" He asked. Slowly, cautiously, he sheathed his sword. "I, too, understand that Nefirus is a greater threat. I will talk to the fellow leaders of my ship about making a temporary alliance, to get rid of Nefirus. But there is a condition: You must bring Master Hand back. We will give you one week, then all of my side will attack you personally. There's no way you can survive that. We will give you one week to prove your worth. If you do bring Master Hand back, however, we will allow you on Ratchet's ship."
Ratchet, come on... I need you to bring the ship back now! Link thought.
It took about a minute for the ship to turn around and come back for Link. It was longer than Link had hoped it would take, but it would do. As the door opened, Link got back on the ship.
Once inside, Link made an announcement. "As I've told you before, Master Hand gave one final command: To go to the forest in southwestern Smash!"
Ratchet waited a moment before taking off. He wasn't as willing to follow Link's orders as he was the Master Hand's, but Ganondorf was on the ground near them, he could enter the ship at any moment. At a speed of mach 7, Ratchet's ship took off and headed for the forest.
Ratchet's ship successfully landed in the forest. "Okay, everybody get out if the ship!" Link ordered. "We need to find the Triforce!" He looked around the forest. Ratchet knew that just south of them lay the Forest Temple, where the Triforce lay. "Let's go get the Triforce!" He ordered again. Under his breath, he sighed. I don't think I make a very good commander, he thought to himself.
"One week is too long" Thought Ganondorf. "Link is as ignorant as ever. If Master hand isn't brought back within the next three days it could mean the end of us all..." Ganoondorf took out his sword and sliced down a tree in his anger. "I MUST FIND HIM AGAIN NOW!" Ganondorf turned around and opened a portal. Link appeared in it. "I reconize that place... but where is it?" Ganondorf let out a long and angry scream. He turned around and opened a portal to take him away. "Link... I will find you again."
He stepped into the portal, hoping to soon relize where that place was he had just seen.
~The Smash Dome~
Unbeknownst to everyone, Nefirus was once again watching the proceedings through a portal. Omega Ridley was looking over his shoulder. "SO THAT'S WHERE THEY HID HIS POWER, A COCONUT." Nefirus almost laughed at the ridiculousness of it. All of Master Hand's power, inside a tiny shell!
"Shall I retrieve it, Master? I am powerful enough to take on the heroes single-handedly in my new form." Ridley especially wanted to kill Samus and Marth, for destroying his original body.
"NO, WE HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD... TABUU MUST REALIZE THAT EVEN UNITED, WITH MASTER HAND REVIVED, THEIR CHANCES AGAINST ME ARE PITIFUL. HE MUST BE DESPERATE TO ESCAPE MY ATTACK."
Nefirus turned to Omega Ridley. “YOU HAVE SERVED ME WELL, RIDLEY. YOUR POWER IS NOW GREATER THAN MOST, AND YOU SHALL SOON HOLD A POSITION OF AUTHORITY IN THE COMING WORLD OF SUBSPACE. HOWEVER, DO NOT RUSH TO ACHIEVE IT JUST YET. WE STILL HAVE MUCH TIME, AND THE BLACK KNIGHT WILL PROBABLY KILL THEM ALL THE NEXT CHANCE HE GETS."
"Yes, master." Ridley bowed and exited the chamber.
~Somewhere in Subspace~
Ganondorf went back to Tabbu, tired of looking for Link. Fortuanently Tabbu wasn’t angry at all about Ganondorf not bringing Link back. "I was watching the whole thing," said Tabbu. "Those coconuts are the items Master Hand hid his power in. Since Nefirus and I are one in the same, I know he was watching the whole thing as well. I know he saw Ratchet drop them in the ocean. And I also know that he thinks he has plenty of time befre he has to retrieve them. But that is where he is wrong. Wait here Ganondorf."
Tabuu opened up a subspace portal leading to the bottom of the ocean. He stepped through it and appeared right in front of the box containing the coconuts. He picked them up and stepped back thorugh the portal.
"How amusing, the games children play..."
"Now," he said to Ganondorf. "I need you to go find Link and gain his trust. You must bring him back here to begin the resurrection. This must be done within three days." Tabbu ordered this to Ganondorf in a worried tone, for he was not sure if the resurrection would be a success. Ganondorf opened a portal and continued his search for Link.
~The Smash Dome~
Nefirus laughed. Tabuu was a fool! It was hard to believe they had even been one and the same at one point. Now that he saw Tabuu getting the coconuts, he could track him. Nefirus instantly locked on to his postion in Subspace and teleported there.
"HELLO, TABUU. IT'S TIME TO FINISH THE FIGHT WE STARTED ON THE ISLE OF THE ANCIENTS."
Bowser’s ship entered to the place where Ganondorf had been. The sky grew black around them as he glared down at the heroes.
“I won’t be ignored! DARK AURA! It’s time for a Brawl!”
Black flames splintered to life around the Koopa King as his overwhelming power grew.
Sora, sitting down, jumped when he saw Bowser teleport in. Not bothering to ask how he found them, Sora shouted, “You won't defeat us Bowser!" He ran towards Bowser and swung the keyblade.
Bowser got hit, or so Sora thought; it was a mere Shadow Clone. Then Bowser appeared behind Sora, “I came ready!” He got ready to claw Sora again. Sora was hit by the surprise attack. It was painful and left a huge black cut on his back. Sora shouted at the others. "You go find the Relic, I'll hold him off!"
"I thought you were tracking these coconuts Nefirus," stated Tabbu. "But it was a chance I had to take. However, it is not time for us to meet in battle again. I will soon be able to rival you in power. But that time is not now." Tabbu opened a portal and threw the cocnuts in it. "I have just sent them to a place that only I and one other know about. I have created it in such a way that you will not be ably to track them, and no matter how hard you try, you will never find that place."
Tabuu was speaking victoriously by the time he finished speaking. After a short pause, words flowed once again. "I know what your thinking. Since we are both one in the same you should be able to easily find and destroy this place and recover the coconuts. But I was not the only one who made this place. I had a little help from a friend. A friend with a power that you can not destroy." At that Tabbu opened another portal. Before leaving he said: "And yes, the arm cannon is also there." At that he stepped through the portal and disappeared.
~The Northern Forest~
Sora casted Blizzard on Bowser, knowing that Blizzard is Fire's weakness Bowser froze. “No! Never been this cold!”Bowser managed to bring the black flames out, breaking the ice, burning towards Sora
Sora got burnt, leaving black marks on his hands. He couldn't lift his arms because of the black marks. Bowser jumped up, ready for a hard ground pound on Sora while he was down.
Sora was burnt badly, leaving black skull marks on his hands. The kid noticed that he could not move his arms or legs. “Man, I'm in trouble.” His skin was gradually turning dark black.
“Bwa ha ha, feel the sting!”
Marth turned to Samus. "Go with the others and find the relic, I'll help Sora with Bowser and come back to find you. I promise!" Marth turned to Bowser. Bowser had become so immensely powerful, he wondered if he had a chance.
"Bwah ha ha! Pathetic!"
Bowser spotted the moment Marth slipped in his guard and took it, charging with the force of a thousand bulls. Marth barely had time to brace for impact, but the impact never came.
A short, hooded figure had burst out of a subspace portal and rammed headfirst into Bowser, sending him spinning off into the woods. Marth turned to get a better look at the mysterious figure, but he couldn't make out a single feature under the dark rags he was wearing. The figure pointed to Marth and let out a small burst of fiery light. Marth felt filled with a feeling of hope, hope unlike anything he ever felt. Marth gasped at the burst of positive energy. The figure remained motionless, but Marth swore he could see the twitch of a smile under the piercing darkness.
"Don't give up hope! We can do this!"
Marth was sure he had heard the voice before, but before he had the time to answer, the figure nodded and dissappeared back into Subspace. Meanwhile, Bowser was shaking himself off. Marth braced for the fight with his newfound strength.
I made a promise to Samus! I'll keep it! Suddenly Marth's blade glowed with an intense light.
"What the..." As the light cleared, Marth found himself holding an ornate and beautiful keyblade. A voice rang out inside his head.
"I AM A GODDESSES OF THIS WORLD, PALUTENA. I HAVE WITNESSED YOUR BRAVERY AND DEVOTION TO YOUR FRIENDS. YOU NEVER GO BACK ON YOUR PROMISES. THIS KEYBLADE IS CALLED THE OATHKEEPER, SO YOU MAY KEEP THOSE PROMISES AND RETURN TO THE ONE YOU LOVE. GOOD LUCK, MARTH."
"Wait! Did you send that hooded figure to aid me?"
"NO, BUT HIS SPIRIT DREW ME TO YOURS. I AM SURE WE WILL BOTH SEE HIM AGAIN SOON."
Marth got back into a fighting position with his new weapon. It glinted in the setting sun.
So I'm a keyblade master too? Woah. This new weapon is far mre powerful than my Falchion.
Marth felt more confident about the battle now. This evens the playing field.
OOC: Remember what I said about altering the story slightly to make it fit better? This is where that starts to come in.
