Weeks.

It had been meagre weeks since the death and destruction of Rukk's return. The Shadeaths were no more, aside from Rubii, who was neutral to the 'takeover'. 

Nothing had been given time to recover. Villages were broken and charred, forests fallen and fields empty.

The grey clouds covering the sky had never left. 

And in those few short weeks, yet another threat has been preparing.

It plans to 'evolve' the world.

Make every living organism a metallic monster, under his command.

The world will be his, and it will be perfect.


The Evolution is coming. 



- CURRENT STARTING SETTING - 


Grace watched a field, full of dead grass. She'd be with her friends, if they were still alive. So much death. So much loss. She wouldn't off herself though. People were still being found under wreckage, and they'd need her to help them if they were injured. 


Ater stood in the shadows of a dead tree nearby, quietly strumming a acoustic guitar. Even her friends had died. But they were evil. They deserved it. Heck, even she deserved to die. She'd killed loads. But maybe she could redeem herself.


Salem sat in a tree, watching the dead grass like Grace. Although she didn't have much purpose to live. She assisted Rukk weeks ago. Killed countless. Assisted in killing more, and she'd been betrayed. Now she was alone. She doubted anyone trusted her at all. The last thing she'd said to the others was if they could take care of Clara's dog, Aurora. Clara was dead. 


Crack, the werewolf, was in the middle of the field, trying to help rebuild a broken house with the help of a few other creatures, and a large one by the name of Rek'Sai. Rek'Sai couldn't speak, but she could understand well enough to lift wooden planks and other objects. There would be a lot more of this to do.

Everyone was still on edge, and rightfully so. When it wasn't worry over the low chance of recovery, it was fear that some sort of new evil could rise. There weren't many people left to put up a fght. 

"And if we can't even rebuild, how'll we be able to defend ourselves?" Augustus muttered, voice shaking. "It'd be so easy to just kill the rest of us."

Hazel had given up on trying to comfort him, he was beyond reasoning with. She just tried with little success to bring life back to the destroyed forests. She'd managed to summon some new starts of trees, but that was about all she could manage on the damaged ground. "It'll be fine, I bet..." She said, mostly to herself. 

"We're not fine." Amethyst said quietly, burning down another tree beyond saving. "This could take years to get over, we don't know what could happen, a-and so many people are..." She trailed off. 

"Amethyst, yeah, lots of people died, and we're in a bad place, but it always gets better." Hazel was trying to make the best of things. She hadn't really had anyone to lose, so she didn't know what to say. "Uh, I hope I didn't jinx that." She said with a nervous laugh, knocking on the burned remnants of a tree trunk.

There was new blood here, a small, auburn-haired girl who faced the sky, back to the ground with her arms and legs splayed outwards to form the shape of a human star. She pursed her lips in an agonizing sort of irritation, the ever-present anxiety of the current conundrum rolling over thoughts relentlessly. She had suffered a great loss during the course of the Doomsday-Evil-Return-of-Rukk-Catastrophe-Apocalypse (or whatever it was actually called; people had began to refer to it as a plethora of different names) and was quickly losing the level-headed optimism that had aided in her survival. But for now, Arieth was at leisure, or at least, as much leisure as one could recieve at this day and age. There were things to do, many things to do. Times of rest were virtually nonexistent. 


"Well this is problematic," frowned a lanky blonde boy with a knack of shamelessly stating the obvious. He stood at the edge of the field, calculating collateral damage and serving little to no purpose being there. He didn't lift a finger to assist the others; he simply stood and stared and let the occasional snarky remark slip from his thoughts. This one was Draconite, a boy who was simply unfit to live in such a state of crisis.

"This is going to take forever.." One of the creatures complained.

"Well, it'd go a lot faster if EVERYONE helped." Crack growled, glancing at the boy on the edge of the field. "Besides, think of the long term. This place'll be looking good if we put in a lot of effort now."


Rek'Sai gave a grunt of approval and continued working, looking at others who weren't doing anything and giving them a short snarl. 

The creature sighed and continued to help out.


Grace turned to a few injured creatures, checking their wounds. They'd live. Barely.


Ater kept playing her guitar. She couldn't really walk up to everyone and say hi, given her past. The same went for Salem.

"How long d'you think we're just gonna be fixing everything for?" Augustus muttered, trying without success to revive a patch of flowers. 

"Until it's fixed." Hazel replied, shrugging. "I thought that much would be clear." 

"But how long'll that take?" 

"As long as it takes." 

"Complaining doesn't help." Amethyst spoke up.

"Amethyst is right, Augustus. If you keep insisting to be negative, leave." Grace spoke up, turning to look at them. "We have better things to do than listen to your complaints, such as actually being useful and doing good in this world."


Crack walked over, raising his hand in greeting before lowering it again. "What do you think of that house? I mean, there's no decoration on the inside yet, but..hey, it's a house."

"It's looking good. Just a few...well..a lot.. more.." Grace murmured.


Meanwhile, Rek'Sai had gotten into a game of rock paper scissors with a lazy creature.

"Nowhere to really go." Augustus muttered, not even bothering to sound defensive. 

"It looks like a house, and that's a start." Amethyst said, shrugging. "It's shelter, furniture or not."

Hazel nodded in agreement. "Yeah, it'll look a lot homier once we get to decorating. Meanwhile, our forest... doesn't look very much like a forest. A bit too, uh, burned." 

"You told me to burn whatever you guys couldn't fix." 

"I didn't expect so many trees to be dead, alright? This is gonna take a while."

The boy ignored Crack's indirect commentary and concluded that, with all due respect, they were all perpetually screwed. He scowled, stalking off to explore the charred remains of the forest. 


Arieth thrust her upper body weight forward and shifted to an upright sitting position. She paused for a second, letting herself recover from such a sudden movement, then stood to her feet to join the others in the restoration of... well, everything.

"Hey, Amethyst, right? Do you still need help burning stuff or are we good on that?"

Crack and Grace turned to Arieth, neither of them knew her.

Politely, Grace asked, "Oh, hello. I haven't seen you around before. May I get your name? Mine's Grace. The werewolf is Crack. Yes, that is Amethyst, this is Augustus, and that's Hazel."


Salem watched the boy from the tree she sat in. If everyone was like that, the world was doomed for sure.

"Yeah. Hi. I mean, uh, yeah, I could use the help." Amethyst replied, shrugging. "We're not doing much, just getting rid of all the... dead stuff."

"So, most of the plants." Hazel added gloomily.

"Is that all you care about? The plants?" Crack asked, looking at Hazel.

"I'm sure she cares about other things too, Crack." Grace sighed. "Now, let me get back to these wounded people..."

"I'm Arieth," Arieth interrupted, "though there may be others who might refer to me as Firefly. Anyways, I'll go clear out unecessary remains from the, er, almost apocalypse."

"It's more like a straight-up apocalypse we barely survived." Augustus muttered, trying unsuccessfully to revive the remains of a birch tree. 

Hazel frowned, looking almost defensive. "G-Grace is right. I just... I'm worried about the forests, too. I care about everything else, but I care about trees a lot, too."

"We can bring back plants." Amethyst interjected. 

"Kind of, but... oh, nevermind. You guys wouldn't get it."

"Sounds like a plan. I'm glad you're being useful." Grace nodded without looking back at them.


"What do you think we need to prioritize?" Crack asked. "There're homes, forests...everything, really. We aren't sure where to start."

"I'd say we should prioritize food and water, if anything. Basic necessities and all that," Arieth interjected with a simple shrug as she began to walk away. "A dead community is hardly a community at all."

"Stuff people would die without is kind of important." Amethyst agreed. "That should take priority." 

"People could use sheler. Water. Food." Hazel began listing off the top of her head, shrugging. "Uh, there's probably more, but I can't think of anything."

"Our ship on the ocean has a few supplies, but it isn't much." Grace chipped in. "Water, food. Meant for the crew, though."

"Yeah, and your crew is dead." Crack muttered.

Grace said nothing back.

"We've all lost people, alright?" Augustus piped up. "Nothing we can do about it. Dead people are dead, that's a thing we'll have to deal with." 

"Anyway. Supplies." Hazel interjected. "Let's see what we have there. Supplies is good. Even if it only lasts a little while... it's something!"

"Augustus, I think you fail to understand how long I've known that crew. As well as my dead friends. At least you still have at least one person. And I'll escort you all to the ship when I finish up here. I don't really want people going on it without supervision. It's...a special ship to me." Grace spoke, looking at Augustus.


"Right. I'll go see what we'll do about this house." Crack nodded, walking back to Rek'Sai and the group of creatures.

"I guess I can understand that." Augustus muttered, not sure what else to say. 

"Sorry about him!" Hazel said, trying to butt in. "He's just, uh, tired. See, he's been working really hard today and probably not considering the feelings of others."

"He hasn't done anything." Amethyst muttered.

"Y-You don't know that."
