The metal beam smashed through the warehouse wall, leaving a gaping hole that revealed... the street outside, as well as the faces of several confused passers by. For the Perceptotron was no longer emitting rays, as it had only been on for a brief moment; all the time it needed to rearrange the heroes' minds. The wavy rings had just been the final vestiges of the thing's infernal illusion, and they, too, fled from Protom-Lad's vision as clarity reasserted itself.

So on the bright side, Protom-Lad is now completely free from the Perceptotron's foul effects! On the not so bright side, his still mind altered companions had just watched the Protomic Menace randomly try to attack some civilians with an I-beam.

Presto, in the meantime, deftly recovered from Cobalt's toss in middair, sparks and small firecrackers shooting from him as he did so. As the pyrotechnics distracted Cobalt, Presto shouted his arcane catch phrase, presto changing all of Cobalt's collected water... into tapioca pudding, that oozing stuff that is well known to be the bane of all water manipulators. For whatever random reason that is.

Freeland also recovered, picking himself up from where Blue had knocked him, and continuing to work on his glove. Indeed, he had not stopped working on it during Blue's assault, happy enough to let his suit do its job in protecting him and otherwise ignore being so accosted.

Though he seemed lost in his own devices, he did mutter one thing: "Not a robot."

When explosion had hit the charging girl she collapsed to the floor in pain, her face was shredded and blood was dripping everywhere. Blinking slowly she tried to keep track of what was going on with the others. Her brain was on the fritz. To her it seemed as everyone was going to have a nice brawl but now everyone was so angry. People were even hurting themselves. Her fingers trembled as she held onto the ground.

He woke from his dream.
A small flash in the corner of his eyes alerted him to a major spark of pain in the mortal world.
He put his armor on, making sure that all eight of the stones were in his gauntlets.

His garden is a dimension all it's own, it is hidden in every maze in the mortal realm.

He steps to the edge of the world.
And now I fly

He spreads his wings and flies into the void.

A barrage of fireballs smashed into Protom, blasting him back. Agent Tombstone continued his assault, fire swirling around him.

They're all against you...

Hood pushed himself off of the floor in a shambling manner, his first instinct was to look for his sword.

Where is it?

He withdrew several smoke pellets and threw them at the first person that'd actually give him any problems, Blue.

His red eyes darted from hero to hero as he made his assault, heavy right punch to her gut, a left to her face, he grabbed her by her hair and smashed her face into his knee.

He had no idea what was going on, the switch was flipped but his head was still in the mind set, his head got hit so hard by Protom's assault that his rational brain switched over to a savage drive that made everyone an enemy.

Blue had no idea what was going on, it was a sudden attack by someone her brain did not recognize as an enemy. No she was rather confused by the sudden assault from Hood. So she did the only thing that seemed logical, to hit back.

Let me.

Rather than let that happen. Blue tried to keep herself in charge of this situation. She wasn't going to give in now. Specially when Azure seemed so impatient on acting up. Seemed as if it was such a bad idea.

No.

Blue grabbed the knee before her face smashed into it, she pushed his leg with her sheer strength that sent him back a little. She she gripped his arm with the other hand, even his body wouldn't last against being crushed by her strength but she just picked the man up and slammed him into the ground. A water arm reached around her and held him down as she let go, seeming to conjure up water swords to point at the man.

"Do not make one such as me break your legs and arms in such cruel manner."

She was referencing where she stood, which was about his legs as she lifted her foot over.

"You would recover in time, of course you would, but do you really designer such pain?"

Ross didn't make a noise that a normal person would make, instead he ashed out and struggled against the water; He made noises and shrieks like an injured animal, struggling in absolute futility. Anyone who knew him for a minute could tell that there was something wrong, his glowing red eyes focused on the Aussie woman as arcs of electricity flew wildly, yet harmlessly through the air.

There was a nasty popping sound

It was rapidly followed by another sound: an extremely annoying, high pitched squeal. It was ear-piercing, and all in the room quickly had their hands clamped over their ears. But as they did so, their perceptions were blasted, the frequency assaulting the fake reality that the perceptotron had placed in their heads.

Clarity rapidly returned, clear and unrelenting, as their normal thoughts regained themselves, and they remembered who they truly were. They, too, realized the madness that they had just been afflicted with, comprehension dawning as they came to grips with the idea that they had just been trying to kill each other.

Finally, the noise stopped, as Patrick Freeland powered down his now stripped down and mangled looking glove.

"Sorry," he said, "but I think that did it."

***********************

"And now, finally, we turn to North America. Armchair General..."

"Yes, Number One. Plans for Operation: Anthill continue as-"

"Plans for Anthill continue as planned, yes. But that is not what I was interested in. General... you've disappointed me."

"W-what? Uh, sir, I-"

"North American operations have lagged behind their counterparts in other parts of the world, purely due to your own laissez faire leadership. Only in a few choice cities, like this lovely Generiville, have your regional directors managed to maintain a modicum of production. You've grown lazy, General. That is not a flaw I can tolerate in E.V.I.L.'s leadership."

"Sir, I assure you I have never shirked my responsibilities. North America continues to produce-"

"Far less than it should, considering the wealth of the United States."

"The United States has a larger hero population per capita than any other country!"

"I have never considered that a valid excuse, General, and you know that. Part of your duties is overcoming such opposition."

"Opposition?! The rest of E.V.I.L. doesn't have to deal with Theodore Roosevelt!"

"And then, there is the issue that your incompetence has lead to the forces of law discovering our presence here. There is no excuse for that, General, do not even try. No, General, I am afraid I have indulged you for far too long. You are hereby excused from your duties as Section Director... permanently."

The Armchair General let out a scream, fearing the inevitable death ray or whatever to spring forth and immolate him. In desperation, he drew forth his sidearm, aimed it at Number One, and fired six shots into the mastermind, seeking to end his life before he could the General's.

Ultimately, a futile gesture, as during the silence that followed the gunfire, Number One simply stood up.

"I was merely going to demote you to a regional command, General."

Number One let his words hang in the air, as the Armchair General squirmed and sweat in his chair. "But I cannot abide by an attempt on my life. Goodbye, General."

The General's second scream was cut short as the bright orange beam lanced through his body, and he immolated almost instantly.

"Now then," Number One began after a moment, "I believe our welcome in this city has been well and completely worn out. Yung Fang, if you'd be so kind as to cast the mass, multi-target teleportation spell I ordered you to prepare? We all have things to do, people to kill, after all. I personally have to review candidates for our North American leadership. So until next year, my friends, I bid you all a very fond farewell. Yung Fang, if you please?"

Later, the Agency would discover a hidden underground meeting room beneath St. George's Episcopalian, abandoned, sparsely decorated, with a great table in the center. In one seat was a still smoldering skeleton, and emblazoned on the table were four letters over a globe, gripped by an ancient looking gauntlet.

**********************

Now, the heroes were back at City Hall, for the time still the Agency's field headquarters. They had been debriefed (and alerted to be on the lookout for Faster than Average Man, who had apparently taken a shot from Dr. Braindrain's paranoialyzer when the Madman Maker had made his escape), and now there was but one thing to do: Recover.

Protom lad Clapped his hands upon his firend's shoulders convivially. "Well old friends. They slipped by this time. But be assured! The likes of E.V.I.L.'s days are numbered, as long as there are heroes as brave and bold as us! Ever Vigilant, ready to protect the downtrodden!"

Protom was still a bit.... Odd after his episode. Horace assured the others it would wear off with time.

"Once again chums, I'd like to apologize for how I let that nefarious fiend turn my powers against you. Rest easy though, as I promise that the mind of Protom-Lad will never again fall prey to the forves of villainy! ANd neither shall his fighting spirit!" Protom pointed one finger up in the air heroically.

"Now could one of you fine fellows escort me to the hospital? I do believe I have some internal bleeding!"

Blood trickled out of the corner of Protom-Lad's mouth.

"Whoops, and there goes my kidneys!"

Protom fell to the ground, unconscious.

Julius picked up Protom, popping him upon his other shoulder, Ross was out cold from Blue putting him down. "C'mon Horace... I have some tests to do and your place is on the route..."

Sitting back on her feet she looked around. This world was confusing and painful. She hopped that they would sell well...
After the events of the rage confusion she had decided to follow a few of the other heros and ended up at city hall. Letting her mind finally think over the events she slowly wondered if the one she attacked earlier was okay. Scanning the crowd she caught sight of the once dazed and bleeding human and walked to his side.

Lennox barely nodded to the odd woman, choosing to remain silent, his face heavily bandaged from what he compared to "being hit in the face with a grenade". Emerging from City Hall on crutches, a dark tendril beckons from a nearby alleyway. Trying to secure his glasses over his heavily bandaged face, Lennox could barely see into the shadows his partner was hiding in. "Drason. How did it g..."

"He is no mere simpletongue! He is some abomination! Kept making bad jokes and he tends to... To grow a mask. Seems like some form of foolish, barbaric monst..."

Lennox tried to hold up a hand, attempting to calm the overwhelmed extraterrestrial. "Did he agree? I fear I may not have what it takes to remain in the field too much longer."

The pair of glowing blue eyes narrow, the alien reaching for something behind the dumpster. "Chose to take a bus... But, he wanted you to have this odd device. A sign of good faith of his arrival as well as request for enhancements. As privately as possible."

He could barely grab the handle of the device from his crutches, almost toppling over from the sudden weight shift. Suddenly, Lennox seemed to be in much better spirits as he noticed the familiar design. Drason was less enthused, which only increased his delight at the outcome of his side project. "He wants a modified chainsaw? This might be crazy enough to work."

Agent Tombstone stepped out of city hall, the sun's warm rays flowing through him, energy coursing through his veins, healing his body and mind. A familiar warmness filled his heart, his fire within blazing. A feeling that even when his abilities manifested five years ago... Felt right.

He turned his head as the Silver Shadow and the Detective exited city hall after him, in their usual manner of high spirits. The faceless man and inky-black hero were loud and boisterous in their conversation.

"Now kid," The Detective laughed, taking a drag of his cigar as the Silver Shadow floated past him. "It's too bad I wasn't a super hero back in the sixties. Going against Zorbo would have been a treat."

"That would be a fight I'd like to see!" The Silver Shadow replied as he turned around still drifting ahead. "Though I gotta wonder who's in charge of EVIL now. Unless Zorbo isn't dead or a ghost or something. Stranger things have happened!"

"I've got no idea kid," The Detective answered, flicking his cigar away. "I'm sure we'll find out sooner or later though."

Their conversation continued, unheard to Agent Tombstone as he watched them walk off. He took a brief glance to Lennox in the alley, who was attending to his own business. The gas-masked agent decided to not bother his fellow Agency man, beginning to walk off his own way.

EVIL's leaders had gotten away once again, which he guessed shouldn't have been much of a surprise. He still scolded himself for it though, walking along on his own. The agent was worried about what they might be planning.

Blue and Cobalt stood there outside away from the others just as if they were staring at the rest. They wiped away a bit at the injuries they had acquired. They would smear a little bit of blue blood here and there but just seemed to nod at one another.

"We shall head to the waters," Blue said happily, "We must do things our own ways and say goodbye to one another. Apologize to those we may have injured, we will be back one day."

The two siblings laughed and nodded at each other before before turning around. They waved an arm out in the air at the others before walking off. The two of them were indeed off to the waters. Cobalt would return home and probably inform The Admiral of the deeds that had occurred.

It was late in the night when the fax machine at BBI suddenly began to whir with activity. A series of bleached white paper slid onto the faded yellow plastic tray of the ancient machine.
Jane Singh lifted her head from the desk she had been resting on. Her shift was ending soon, with any luck this was just more unintelligible gibberish, or perhaps something easy like a new hero that just needed filing. She grabbed the papers and stared at them as her naptime blurred vision came into focus.
Fuck.
It wasn't what she was hoping for. Not even slightly. It wasn't something simple or something easy. It was Him. He was back at it again.
To be fair, she had expected this script faxed in 2-3 days ago, The Universe was due for another rewrite. It happened often but no one ever knew, mostly because of people like Jane who would sweep the inconsistencies under the rug. Minor alterations in physics, chemistry, anatomy and history, minor things, really. It was regularly irregular, meaning it clung to a fairly lazy schedule, predictable enough to allow some preparation. She was hoping these couple days of procrastination would last till Monday, when she'd be off duty with no pending cases.
But no. It's Him, it's here, and it's a fuckfest.
She read over the outline more intently. It was the usual stuff, it seemed. Maybe a bit showier this time around. Honestly she wondered why He was coming back, she wondered how long He'd last this time. She mused to herself as she read.
Oh, that one? I thought we were done with that one but I guess the classics don't die.
She leafed through the pages
What? This building doesn't even fucking exist. You can't just fucking... These aren't little things here. Christ. Oh and there's something else new. God, it sounds insufferable too.
The script captivated her attention like the Sunday morning paper: barely. But she was reading the headlines before they happened and in her line of work that was necessary. Then suddenly something catches her attention.
No, wait, what's this? What's He doing? This is definitely not okay.
This time, the laws of the universe were changing a bit too much.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Meanwhile, crime was afoot.
It was something new coming for something old. Or was it old after new? The sound of it all blurred together and mixed and transposed over itself until it wasn't really clear what the sound ever was in the first place. It was a strange falsetto somehow beneath a vibrating bass, it was a thumping sound that went in your ears and stayed there until you forgot it came in. It was spider music with many legs all weaving a thread catching whatever came its way. A hum that couldn't be hummed, a beat that couldn't be tapped to.

And of all the places it could be coming from, it was coming from the Groove Reactor.
Created years ago by a legend of funk, the Groove Reactor was what supplied Generiville with all of it's rhythm. It was a giant gold building filled with pipes and strings that hummed and shook ceaselessly, providing sustenance for the city's soul.
It had fallen into disrepair over the years but it was a testament to the purity of its tone that it still grooved as jazzily as the day it was made. It was a forgotten marvel, covered now with leaflets of techno raves and nu-metal moshes. But it still did its duty. As long as it stood the city would not lose tempo.
But now this sound was coming from it, this new sound, this weird and alien noise. There was something wrong. You could hear it in the way the street cars honked in traffic, things were getting out of tune. Some investigating was needed.

It was odd that one of the first people to arrive there was that strange, familliar top-hatted young man, cat perched on his shoulder. Though, he wasn't really young, immortality had a tendency to do that, but it was still odd that he, of all people, would arrive for this, of all situations.

"...Slider," Ashley trailed behind the top-hatted man, a look of confusion on her face. "Why are we at the Groove Reactor?"

"Well, I don't see why not!" The Slider answered, twirling his cane as he swirled back around to look at her. "Don't worry, my dear Ashley! I'm sure there's nothing to be concerned about! Just a curiosity to be whet."

"It doesn't seem like the usual kind of thing you show up for though," The girl replied back, keeping close behind. "Which is usually multiverse-threatening dangers. I'm sure you can understand my concern."

"Ashley, Ashley!" The Slider grinned, tipping his hat to her as they came to a stop in front of the building. "Sometimes, even the littlest things matters!"

"And sometimes the littlest things can become the most dangerous," The cat on the Slider's shoulder mumbled, green eyes glaring at him.

With Hood out of commission and Julius wasn't around, the audience was forced to turn their attention to the mystery man clad in black.

"Fancy that, a fairytale that actually exists." the mysterious stranger made the comment as he just suddenly seemed to appear, sticking to a wall 3 meters above the ground, the lighting causing the lenses over his eyes to glow in an eerily bug-like manner. "I was starting to think you didn't exist."

He dropped down, sizing the Slider up and down before nodding, "You seemed to have... Well... Heard it too, huh?" He tilted his head, rubbing his covered chin with a gloved hand, "Shall we investigate then?"

"As it happens, loads of fairytales actually exist. Too bad they're mostly of the Brothers Grimm variety," said Presto the Magnificent(!) as he stepped out from behind the mystery man clad in black.

"So, Mystery Man Clad in Black! Are you going to tell us who you are or am I going to have to make a name up for you? As a warning, there's a high likelihood of whatever I choose being absolutely ridiculous."

Presto then noticed Ashley, to whom he offered greetings, and then the Slider, who he stared at with an inscrutable expression on his face that well hid the thoughts running through his head, which could be summed up as "Ohmygodarchmagearchmagearchmagelookatthathatandth atcatandthatarchdidileavethedrieronmage."

"Well, I am in a fair amount of fairy tales," The Slider responded to the mystery man with a shrug. "Unless it's Merlin! That's the Arcanus."

"Though, you'd think people wouldn't think you're a fairy tale," The cat on his shoulder spoke up, using a paw to fix its own top hat. "We did help during the... Gammaverse I believe you fellows call it, after all. Usually takes a century or so until we're the 'mysterious top-hatted man and his cat' again."

"Ah Cat, it was the fine heroes of this universe who were the real stars of the Gammaverse Crisis though!" The Slider grinned, placing a hand on Ashley's shoulder. "I was just there to give them my assistance as needed!"

The black-haired girl glanced over to her top-hatted gentlemen with a smile before looking back to the Groove Reactor. "So Slider, do you have any idea what's happening here?"

"Absolutely no idea my dear!" The Slider loudly exclaimed, ever present smile on his face as he walked over closer to the reactor's entrance. "And there's only one way we'll know for sure!"

"By going ins-" The cat began before he was cut off.

"By going inside!" The Slider exclaimed, giving his cane another idle twirl as he span back around to the group. "I'll await to see if all of our companions are ready first though! Or for any late arrivals!"

"One such as you does not decide when a group goes in," Blue said nonchalantly, patting Slider on the back, probably knocking him over a bit, "There are greater forces at work. When the waters themselves do not sing the tune they normally hum every second of the day. . . that is when such as us is needed. When such as those who are human and not must find the tune."

She turned her head looking at the other man, "Oh a new feeling, a new land walker to witness."

She was actually physically fine. While she was rather sure she had never told any of the heroes she was an Aussie as well as her brother, they never told anyone really, she recovered fast enough with the help of water. Sure, some parts of her still hurt, but overall the girl was fine. At least she wasn't going to complain the hole time about the pain in her ribs. Her face was still a little messed up, but the girl wore an eye patch all the time, having a couple band-aids wasn't going to ruin her.

Professor Danielle Redwood's first experience in the field was not stellar. Indeed, one could say it was a "Horrible, awful experience" and that "Any other employer who would put someone in that position would be facing so many OSHA lawsuits that they'd be in court for a decade." In fact, Redwood did say these things. To Headmaster Appleton.

Of course, Headmaster Appleton took it all in stride or maybe didn't actually hear what she was yelling. He jollily clapped his hand on her back, told her she did a right good job and that he looked forward to seeing her do more Adventuring in the future. Redwood could do nothing but watch in exasperation as he told her to return to her teaching and studies until the next crisis arose. He then promptly, but politely, pushed Danielle out the door and closed it behind her.

Thankfully, no such crisis had arisen since and the Professor was able to return to her studies as normal. Today was the first time she'd left the school to pursue some weird anomalies she'd detected. It was a good chance to see if her Gauntlets were good at sniffing out magical disturbances or as simple recording devices.

Professor Redwood was standing outside the Groove Reactor, taking video with a camera in her lab coat's breast pocket while waving her hands over the facade. She would stop occasionally to wave other measuring devices around and scribble notes. She turned and absent mindedly walked towards the heroes while mumbling to herself.

"Doesn't appear to be anything arcane... no radioactive materials to speak of... can't determine if the source of the sound is coming from the building or inside the building... Hmmm..."

It was then that she finally looked up from her notes. She saw the gaggle of adventurers around her. The content and focused look on her face drooped into a quiet look of fear. Redwood brought her notes close to her chest and whimpered:

"oh no."

"Land walker doesn't quite cover it, sweet-cheeks." He turned to look at the building, seeming to scan it up and down for a brief moment. It was convenient that no one could see his face, if they could there would've been ramifications from those that had read the old texts. His mask moved, notifying a smile.

"Ah, I'm not with them, per se." He said to Redwood, placing a hand on the door. "And to answer your question Presto(!), you may call me Forest." His smile dropped when he glanced over the heroes, "Forest will do for now."

"Would you rather I say something else? Perhaps cloud?" She smiled as she seemed to gather more and more water closer to her, "What would the joy be? I know of your feeling and landwalker will just have to do. Forest is a funny name, would not think it."

She waved at the rest, "Also! Hello comrades Presto(!), lady I am not comrades with, others."

"You do know you don't need to put the exclamation mark after his name unless it's the full 'Presto the Magnificent (!)', don't you?" The cat upon the Slider's shoulder spoke up, green eyes looking at Blue and Forest, who probably had no idea what the animal was referring to at all.

The Slider gave a shrug to his companion's brief explanation as he leaped off his shoulder, sitting on the ground next to him. Licking it's left non-robotic arm, it went to doing cat things as the Slider continued on. "Well, it's always a pleasure to meet new people! Interesting new people as well, what with things like the fists of Zurdonna and what not!"

"I do appreciate you not blowing the whistle on me, Sweetness." Forest said, glancing over Blue.His glance snapped back to the Slider, "So, well,how do we do?" He made his way over, looking left and right at the heroes and the scientist, "You'd never believe how many suits are looking for you... Well you can guess, I imagine..." He shrugged, turning back to the door, "Quite a place..."

(ooc: SORRY FOR DELAYS)
Night was besetting Generiville. A grey haze of clouds made the sunset unnoticeable. The disquieting tenor of the Groove Reactor approached a feverish pitch as the mob of heroes gathered at its entrance.
The structure and its hundred strings, pipes and radio towers hummed out of tune. It was like someone had plucked the string of a harp and then slowly tightened it so that the delicate sigh formed into a tight shriek.

A ripping, whip-like noise erupted from the building. It was a hundred nails on a hundred chalkboards. The heroes fell to their knees clutching their ears. Their feet left the ground and touched the sky as their eyes stared as the blood gorged veins of their retina shuddered to hold and refrain barely from bursting.
The piercing ring shooting in their heads descended to an echo and the group looked at each other, visibly trying to collect themselves. Were they told only seconds had passed they would not have believed it. Everything seemed to be off calibration, like the fluids in their bodies were all on one side or the other.

A strange, groaning and wild noise began to emit from the Groove Reactor and, beneath and on top of that noise was that same, slowly tightening squeal. And beneath even that the radio towers stuttered with staticky police reports. Cars-ssss-stoppedddddtt-tt-trafficc-ccc-city hall-lll-lost powerrrr-rrr-rrrioting-kshhhhhhhhhh----

The humble statue of the DJ of Funk, designer, inventor and all around maker of the Groove Reactor stood at its entrance, smiling wide at those choosing now to enter and discover its secrets.

"So," began Presto as he got up and brushed himself off, "I think there's something wrong with the Groove Reactor."

There was a flash, and he was suddenly by the entrance of the massive music making machine.

"Let's see what's inside!"

He then entered, in full secret discovery mode.

The Slider stood still, looking at the open Groove Reactor. Oddly, instead of having his usual smile, his face sported a frown. Not one from the sudden ear screeching, but one of sadness, like he was recalling memories from long, long ago. A sad nostalgia filled him.

One that Ashley noticed, looking at him with concern. "Slider, are you okay?"

He snapped out of his stupor, looking over to her, smile forming on his face. "It's nothing my dear! Now, what do you say to venturing inside?"

With that, the Cat leaped up onto Ashley's shoulder as the couple made their way inside after Presto.

If outside the Groove Reactor the sound seemed only disturbing, within its halls the noise was sickening. The humming pulse made the straight seem curved, the wide, narrow. From every direction a different tone came, out of sync with the others.

Yet it still could not stop the sense of wonder that came from the majestic entrance-way into the Groove Reactor. Everything was gold and bronze and silver where it wasn't ivory white, piano keys and guitar strings wrapped around the ceiling and walls like mossy vines.
Most striking were the acoustics, they were tangible. Every footstep and breath reverberated and hung before you. When others spoke the noise came from your head, as if you yourself were speaking it. All other senses melted away, smell became sound, sight became sound. Touch was a melody and the taste of the air was a song in your head.

Littered throughout the hallway were displays, historic moments of the rhythmical soul of Generiville. The Great Jazz Debates, when two of Generiville's greatest sax players for 3 weeks in a row spent hours a day wailing at each other with music to solve their differences. The Du-Wopanomic Collapse, when lead singer for one of Generiville's most beloved Barber Shop Quartets disappeared unexpectedly and the whole city lost its rhythm for a day. The Defeat of the Borschtnian Battle Band, when the terrible villa... well, you know that story.
An entire section of the hallway was devoted to the creation of the Groove Reactor and the man behind it, The DJ. An enormous mural spanned the wall. Upon it were the founding tenants of the Groove Reactor: In all life and in all things there is Rhythm and Soul. A thing without these is no thing at all, just as a life. Music without it is noise.

Further on, another fragment read:
My time is finite but my Soul is good and my Rhythm is fresh. And it will always be so, even when I pass. I must leave something behind for others, something big, something funky, to be sure that the city never loses its Soul.

As the heroes progressed through the halls they could hear that ear-piercing squeal get tighter again. A horrible sound sloshed about in their stomachs. The noise was a fog that made even the splendor of the interior turn sinister. Somewhere deep under all of it there was some form of Funk still playing, but barely.

Blue walked around grabbing her stomach for a moment as the sound twisted and turned around in her insides. She looked around, well her head shifted around. To her this was surreal almost, there was nothing kind about relying on one of the basic senses. Not a sense of time, a sense of self, a sense of life, a sense of the waters, just a sense. A normal sense than everyone knew about. Sound. Sure, the girl had excellent hearing but this place was odd and majestic.

"This sensation is such an odd feeling," Blue hummed out in an odd pattern, "Such basic instincts to rely on. This area is so odd, feeling the waters are not even apparent."

The trail of water Blue brought with her still followed behind but it seemed to have an odd flow to itself. It didn't just flow, it seemed to jerk around and buzz all over with the tune with the sinister noise.
