[GS] Ventus.

Recommended Posts

There was no air to breath in the Plane of Shadows, nor in the Void, there was no warmth or light, only darkness and cold. Koji was a monster bred and grown in death. His endurance for such elements were grandiose, and yet he found complications from Ventus' personal brand. This foreign cold was numbing even to him, sparing him from a lot of the pain that thrashed his serpentine body, causing it to writhe and recoil like the lost tail of a lizard. His fanged maw clinched shit, as did his eyes. As he plummeted, he couldn't even feel that he was in fact crashing through the heavens. As his senses began to fail him, as he questioned his existence for the first time since becoming the man he now was, Ventus' speech was mostly lost on his ears. Though as sure as thunder boomed, the end of her words pierced the veil of his subconscious mind.

"How strong is your will?!”

Suddenly, his eyes snapped open wide! Twisting and turning he recovered from his falling state, realizing he'd dropped the black exalta. Spotting it he dove after it, his wretched maw snapping open before clamping shut with the prism secured in his mouth. Pushing it to his throat with his tongue, the dragon swallowed the prism whole! The luminescence the black exalta granted his scales proved to mutate his yoki and body as a whole, the two sources of energy blending into one; The Black Exalta Prism, and his Soul. Hues ranging from deep and midnight blues to purples of similar nature. His now emissive eyes and roaring maw glowed with the same eldritch nature. Horns grew from the top of his skill, further mutating his appearance. 

Hurtling back toards the goading goddess, the chimerical dragon opened his jaws as wide as his head once more, and from the center, a ball of flame appeared. Rapidly the sphere grew in size to the likes of 100 foot diameter. This large fiery orb once mostly to it's maximum size launched from Koji towards the remaining walls and their source. It continued to expand to it's full size which it achieved about half way between Koji and Ventus. With it's large size it hurtled rather slowly, though in this sort of stand offish battle, he doubted Ventus would second guess herself to try and stop it. As maddening as it might appear to her, Koji's body became shrouded in an similar aura, albeit a more dense one. Rocketing through the air in the manner of a torpedo, he raced for the orb he'd launched at Ventus! If allowed to pierce the huge ball of exalta infused flame, the achieved result was the mimicking of an atomic bomb. Couple with the pressure walls between her walls of light, Koji was taking a more kamikaze approach; Placing himself in harm's way in order to blast through her defenses and perhaps even threatening her directly. 

Tanking the explosion, Koji resisted being knocked back by the force of it. As soon as he could manage it, he'd resume by advancing once more, aiming to perhaps catch Ventus with her guard down. For being in the air, the clashing energies sure did a fine job of creating debris clouds, even if they were mostly just clumps of smoke lingering in the wake of the residual energies present. The question was, had he destroyed all the wall? Had she made more? What of the calm space that still awaited the Dragon Emperor should he make it beyond those walls?

Given the transforming situation, Ventus was not yet ready to give him the ground yet. Taking from the ten walls left Ventus compressed two light walls and two air walls into one turning it down to 6. Throwing these four walls at Koji and his explosion she altered the shattering quality of the air pressure and instead changed it to implode. Sucking the vast wall of magic energy and fire into itself the light energy snuffed out the magic properties in negation. Thus the smoking debris was few and far between, the space she had once given him to breathe was removed. Shoving the remaining six walls forward his free fall would be his undoing. First he was hit with the last wall of light and pressure which sucked him in like a whirlpool. Throwing him down into the last 4 Magic’s walls his aura was stripped from his flesh and the mind was consumed. 

Dropping the right hand down she kept it open gathering power at its epicenter. For Koji his world would splinter as his very reality turned to hell itself. The mental hell of Sarandriel in which the young lord would find himself flung and splattered a thousand times over. The pain center of his body was heightened, for every splatter he would experience rebirth only to be splattered again with no power to call upon. The cries of legions could be heard ringing in his mind as he was subjugated to the mental abuse. What happens to the mind the body will later experience.

He wasn't sure when nor how, but the Emperor was all but certain that he'd met his demise. The varying pain felt both in and outside of his body eventually became overwhelming pain in unison. After various explosions in seriatim, Koji's senses completely left him, his body becoming numb as his eyes rolled into the back of his head. There was nothing at first; No vision nor sound, no feeling whatsoever. Suddenly immense pain found him once more, in which he was violently torn asunder, his body mutilated into hundreds of pieces; A shower of blood and viscera radiating all around his dying body as the pieces fell apart. There was nothing at first; No vision nor sound, no feeling whatsoever.

Perhaps the Mugen'me would have caught on to the repetitive nature of this immense illusion if it could still truly be called such. Though without it, Koji found himself becoming stuck in a loop. A feat in which it took several times in said loop to even question whether or not he was stuck in one. Uncertainty set in every time he was reborn, and by the time he reached his agonizing death he felt this eerie sense of familiarity. Had he died? Was this the real Jigoku? Was this hell? His eternal prison where his wicked soul was to be punished for all eternity. Was it his personal hell, or one of this world's? If it wasn't hell, what or where was it? Whatever it was, where ever, it felt something like a combination of the Plane of Shadows and the Void, but worse!

At present Koji was well within her grasp, a puddle of atoms and soul within the palm of her hand. Like evolution herself, Ventus began her work on the man. “So you wish to be close to a god..” Her voice mumbled lightly as her very essence began to pull his apart. Within this illusion the tolerance to pain was gained but also lost at the same time. With every reformation he would be forced to watch a version of himself go through the same process; all while following in its demise. A hall of mirrors in his case a cycle of horror watching his insides be splattered out. The taste and scent of sulfur oxide over powered the ability for the lungs to function flawlessly. Here he was stripped of sentient abilities and now a mere man. 

What he thought he understood about pain and survival would be given a whole new meaning. Spinning into the cycle a new method of torture; Ventus replicated his conscience doubling the input of what Koji would experience. While during the first fold time seemed to not exist; the second feed to his conscience would experience time. A weathering of his sanity, here he hung upon a cross. In this version he would taste  cinnamon in abundance and like wise the extreme thirst. Against his back was a briar thorn bush which grew a few  centimeters into his skin every few seconds. A growing yet throbbing pain that would never cease. The bush covered from the nape of his neck and down impaling his body from finger tip to finger tip and down to his toes. The thorns avoided vital points as to slowly let him bleed out in the humid heat. The humidity worked wonders when it came to making the body sweat itself into dehydration. When the thorns had accomplished fully impaling him he again would be reborn and the method would continue again.

How? How long? How long did he have to endure this suffrage? How long had he already been enduring it. Perhaps worse than the physical trauma superimposed on his form, was the PTSD that hid in the back of his mind. Triggered by what could only be described as torture, Koji couldn't help but recall his time in the Void. He couldn't help but remember what the Yokai Queen had done to him...What she had done to his Empress. Once freed from his punishment by torture, which lasted for approximately and entire year, he swore. He swore to her that one day he'd come for her, that he would kill her. It only took about another year after he had been freed to follow through on his promise. While she'd been saved and somehow resurrected by her pesky friends, the fact of the matter was that he did as he spoke of doing. 

At first, he sympathized for Ventus. However, as her wrath continued to unfold upon him, he grew to have less and less sympathy on her behalf. Was she truly any different than the Yokai Queen, this Goddess? For Akako had done the same to him, tortured him into a stronger version of himself between surgery and abandonment in the limitless void. While he was thankful for the boon he'd received, he still killed her for her transgressions. Though that was hardly for himself, that was for his late Empress. His Kimi. Recalling this fact led to reminiscing of her, which reminded him of Kimiko. In turn, this brought his Empress to his mind, Katiya. This brought to mind his other remaining wives, Noi, and of course the fiery haired Celine. These vivid thoughts a memories brought him to the cusp of the happiest he'd ever been. To ones of his first born, Kaori, and her younger brother Akui; Heir to the Datsuzoku throne. Then of course the two unborn children of his, carried by Noi and Celine respectively; both of which he was almost certain were boys. 

Finally his eyes slid shut, and any movements that weren't involuntary ceased to happen all together. There was no more opposing the inevitable, there was no surrender either. Though just as he'd done in the past, he'd do now. His friends, his family, those he loved...He'd survive and live because of them. For them. Acceptance. That was what he came to afford Ventus. Acceptance of the pain and suffering. Acceptance of his own life, of her's even. Between the split yet shared effects of timelessness and time, there was no way to truly tell; Though he accepted his dilemma unabashedly. With each repeat, with each reiteration, he began to feel as if these feelings of intimacy were being extended to Ventus herself.

On the outside Ventus was slowly following him through his memories and emotions. A fierce envy burned within her very being but abundant joy flooded from her as well. Was passing into time so bad; honestly it was not the worst that could happen. Sympathy was the last thing she expected from such a man with a boon as his own; she was compelled to show compassion. A third realm was opened where Koji could consciously go where Ventus delivered to him peace. 
 

The marble floors and halls were clean to the finest of details. Koji himself was clad in white robes; he appeared as himself to the T as well. A single picture of cold water and food nourishment. The soon to be Demi god would need everything he could get.
