    Summary

    Maybe it's the ominous voiceover in the commercials, or the fact that it's popped up in over a dozen different locations in Ninjago City this past month alone, or the fact that it's all anyone on the internet seems to want to talk about anymore, but something about "Epiphany Enterprises," the new aromatherapy spa resort or whatever it is, just doesn't seem quite right.

    Between that and the whole communal shared dream-world thing going on—not to mention their invasive butterfly infestation problem—it seems like the ninja have their work cut out for them yet again.

    But surely it's nothing they can't handle. It may be a little weird that the more they look into it, the more those three things seem to be connected...but butterflies, weird dreams, and sketchy spas aren't exactly ninja-level threats anyway, right?

    Summary

    “That so doesn’t count!” Willow’s chide sounded soft, like she was responding to a joke. “You were down 10 minutes tops.

    “I-I can’t sleep.”

    “Nightmares?” Gus quietly guessed, bringing a finger to his jaw and drawing his dark brows together.

    “Hah,” Hunter dryly laughed, “I wish that was it.”

    “What do you mean?”

    Mother Titan, he hadn’t meant to say that out loud. He tore his gaze from Willow and Gus and stared pointedly at the floor. Distantly, he felt his shoulders rapidly rise and fall. He couldn’t tell them that Belos could get in his head. That as soon as he went to sleep he’d put everyone at risk. That he’d known he’d put all of Hexide in danger the moment he stepped on campus but still had selfishly chosen to hide here. That, that—

    Hunter needs sleep and Willow and Gus will do everything within their power to help him get it! And if that means searching all of Hexide for a mystic, Dreamwalking-proof flower, then so be it.

    Summary

    Soft wisps of Hunter’s hair gently blew in the wind as he stood in silent thought. Suddenly, he released his grip on his scalp and moved his hand down his face, slowly dragging it between his brows and over the bump on his nose. He pushed off the tree trunk and clapped his hands together. “Ok, here’s the plan,” he said, turning to look at the little red bird. “We get more information about grimwalkers, and we find a place to lay low.”

    The palisman nodded along with his wielder’s words.

    “...Then, I never sleep again and play a high-stakes game of Coven vs. Wild with Belos for the rest of my life!”

    Hurray!

    The Emperor’s Coven is no longer safe, his uncle is dream-stalking him, and his only ally is his pallisman. Titan, where did everything go wrong?! Wanting answers and knowing that the castle’s library is no longer an option, Hunter turns to the next best place: The Forbidden Stacks. But as the Golden Guard dives deeper into the truth of his creation, he begins to believe it might’ve been better to remain blissfully in the dark.

    Summary

    Hunter snapped back around, his cloak flying behind him. The beast hadn’t died. Instead, it reared back onto its hind legs and rolled its lips to expose a pair of blue eyes nestled high in its gums. It returned to all four legs with a loud CRUNCH in the snow, foam dripping from the corners of its maw as another low growl rumbled out.

    The beast charged forward faster than Hunter could blink, and without his mind’s direction, he teleported in front of Lilith and pushed her out of the way.

    Four white-hot daggers dug into his shoulder blade and ripped through his armor down to the base of his spine. His nerves lit on fire. A loud scream rang in Hunter’s ears, and a small part of him knew it was his voice.

    His back was in ribbons, it had to be.

    An accident on the Knee leaves the new Golden Guard hanging to life by a thread. After an unpleasant experience in the castle’s infirmary, he is summoned by Belos and taught a painful lesson for putting his life in jeopardy for a witch.

    Summary

    AND SO AT LONG LAST, the third of the Elden Lords was enthroned.
    Their tale (it was said) would surely echo through history, a grand herald of a new age for all humanity: The Age of the Fractured. A new chapter of the Lands Between.
    Thus did the curtains descend on the old, and the unneeded actors quietly took their leave.
    --
    D and Rogier centric Postgame AU where the Tarnished did absolutely none of the sidequests, or optional bosses, and therefore just ended up with the standard ending. Life goes on regardless.
