Private Artificial Love. (with Dynamo Pad)

Recommended Posts

@Dynamo Pad
Sunlight could only shout "What..?!" and barely lit her horn as Cosmic suddenly grabbed her and pulled her into a portal, and because she hadn't any time to prepare, she lost her balance and fell over when they landed on the other side of the portal, after which she just laid there trying to get her thoughts together and looking around to see her surroundings and if the portal they came through was still there. As she slowly gathered her thoughts she also started wondering how Cosmic had done that, he clearly wasn't powerful enough to do that so there had to be something else, but there also was something else, she felt...different, something felt wrong but she didn't know what it was, she wasn't sick, but she didn't feel fine either.

Meanwhile....
When Cosmic grabbed Sunlight and disappeared into the portal, something snapped inside Jade and he could feel all of his reason and logic leaving him as he charged towards the portal, only be stopped by Frozen standing in his way, he went face to face with him, just barely far enough so their muzzles didn't touch, staring Frozen to his eyes with his rage-fueled eyes. He spoke with empty yet frightening tone, like everything but hate had disappeared from him "You are in my way..."

As Cosmic made it to the other side of the portal, he made a perfect landing as he watched the mare, who had lost her balance and fell over. He chuckled humorously at the spectacle, before waiting impatiently for his intended opponent to arrive. After a moment, Dynamo flew through the portal, but landed in the same fashion as Sunlight. He tried to gather his bearings as he looked around for Sunlight. He smiled and crawled over to her and pulled her into a hug. "I'm so glad I was able to make it. He didn't hurt you, did he?" He asks, before turning his attention back to the neon green unicorn. "What is this place and how did we get here?" Cosmic shook his head, while waving a hoof at the couple. "Now, where's the fun in revealing the secrets. All in due time, my dear audience. However, I will say this. We are in the Naruto Storm game, but we are at the character select menu. We just pick our characters and then the real battle can begin." He noticed Sunlight was looking a little distraught, as well as Dynamo, who was beginning to pant and catch his breath. "Oh, that's right. I forgot to mention one tiny, little detail." He grinned, before continuing. "You see, since you are not used to the laws of this world, the magic you have within you is slowly being drained from your bodies. The more magic you use, the more drained you'll become. If you run out of magic, then it might go after your life force." He shrugged his shoulders as he wasn't feeling the drain.

Dynamo narrowed his eyes as he took a few shaky breaths. "Just get to the point, already. What's the challenge and we'll settle it now." Cosmic sighed and shook his head. "Fine, then. You both know how to be a buzzkill, don't you." He began to pace back and forth, while going over the rules. "It'll be a best three out of five. Whoever gets three wins first will win. However, I wonder how long you will last in this competition." His grin widened as he knew he had the advantage. Dynamo knew he had no other way, but to agree. "I accept the rules, but you have to let Sunlight go. You only took her here, so that you could get me to join in the fight. She has no reason to be here, so just let her go. I'm the one you want." Cosmic put a hoof to his chin to contemplate. True, he wanted to make the mare pay for defeating his teammate, but Cosmic knew his teammate was just a pawn. "That's fine by me. The portal will remain open, so long as I choose to keep said portal open."

Frozen watched as Jade had gotten closer and closer to the ebony Pegasus. They were a mere few inches apart as he heard Jade's words and tone. "I wouldn't keep making that face, if I were you. If you do, then it'll become stuck like that." He chuckled, before narrowing his eyes. "Still, I'd like to see you try!" He turned around, got down low to the ground, reared back his hind legs and attempted to kick Jade.

"I'm okay.." Sunlight simply replied to Dynamo's worry as she still tried figure out her thoughts, and when Cosmic explained about the magic drainage, she first thought it was the thing causing her weird feeling, but seeing Dynamo getting out of breath made her realize that it couldn't be it, because unlike normal ponies, her body wasn't depended on the amount of magic she had, so it getting trained shouldn't have felt like that, and it couldn't be the life force either, since she didn't have any in the first place. After thinking about it for a moment, she noticed that the feeling changed a bit when Cosmic started pacing back and worth, she then got it, she didn't know why or how, but for some reason she was connected to the game more than the others, she could feel the errors in the game's code caused by the three ponies. Sunlight's ears pricked up when she heard Dynamo asking Cosmic to let her go, she got up and shook her head "Look at yourself, you won't last long against him in this unfair environment." "I'm not leaving you here alone." "Especially when he has some kind of artifact with him to boost his magic." she turned toward Cosmic before he could say anything "And don't try to claim otherwise Clown, I could tell that magic from miles away."

Jade stepped few steps backwards and put his wings between him and Frozen to take in Frozen's kick, he didn't even flinch, even if it did hurt a little, he just said with the same voice as before "As you wish." After which he dashed to the left and made a sharp turn towards Frozen, flying towards him his hind legs bend ready for a powerful kick aimed to Frozen's flank.

Dynamo shook his head in protest as Sunlight wanted to stay and help him out. "I really appreciate the help, sweetheart, but you know he might try and hurt you. Once that happens, he'll go after me and try to finish me off. I can't say I'll get used to the gaming world, but I have to do my best. He can't get away with what he's done." He raised an eyebrow in confusion to Sunlight's last remark. He turned back to see Cosmic, who had his arms up in a mock surrender. "I guess you found me out. It's true, you know. Without this amulet, then I'd be in trouble." He smirked as he pulled out an alicorn amulet that was around his neck. "It's true that being transported into a game can be draining on one's magic, but I made it, so your magic drains faster. So, the only way for the magic drain to end, is to take me down. Of course, I don't think it'll happen." He chuckled as he began going through his character selection.

Frozen smirked as his kick made contact, but he soon scoffed as he saw the kick didn't do much. He flinched at the tone Jade had given the ebony Pegasus, but he stayed strong as Jade tried to return the kick with his own strike. Frozen jumped over Jade and smirked. "You're going to have to try better than that, if you're going to stop me. Remember what I said? If one strategy fails, then try another plan. How will you win if I can come up with a new strategy?" He asks in a mocking tone.

"But..." Sunlight left to that, she realized that she wouldn't be able to convince Dynamo without saying something she didn't wast Cosmic to know  and didn't say anything until Cosmic showed the amulet "the Alicorn Amulet, that explains how you can be so obnoxious, it has rotted your mind.". When Cosmic focused on the character screen, Sunlight whispered to Dynamo, making sure that Cosmic didn't hear her "I won't argue with you if you don't want me here, but think about it little longer, I can't get drained like you do and some spells won't work on me, but if you're sure.....just be careful, with that amulet he can do everything from simple attacks to turning you into a filly, you can only win by using your head, you'r too much in disadvantage on everything else." she kissed him on his cheek and waited for his reply.

"Blah blah, would you shut up already." Jade complained as Frozen kept talking, he landed his leg on the ground and kicked himself to opposite direction towards Frozen, he was attempting to crash to him with his full weight. Jade had one advantage over a Frozen, and that was his stamina, because though he got tired like any other pony, he would be able to continue regardless of that if situation required it, after all, he didn't have muscles that would give up from tiredness, or brains that needed more oxygen, so only thing suffering from said tiredness would be his concentration and energy, and he knew he wouldn't run out of energy before Frozen.

Cosmic raised an eyebrow at Sunlight's accusations. "What do you mean? This amulet hasn't rotted my mind. In fact, I haven't felt more alive in years! I've woke up to the truth and now I can attain all the power that I could ever ask for!" He chuckled, before it turned into a full on laughter. Dynamo shook his head at Cosmic, before turning his attention over to Sunlight. "It's not even the amulet that's making him act this way. When we were younger, he would always act like this. He had a sort of superiority complex. I'll explain later when this battle is over." He looked to see if Cosmic was paying attention, but he was thankful the neon green unicorn was minding his own business. "It's not that I don't want you here, Sunny. It's just that I don't want anything to happen to you. If I lost you, or if you got hurt, then I wouldn't forgive myself. I know you're a capable mare, who can take care of herself, but still." He felt the kiss upon his cheek and smiled softly. His eyes widened as he had an idea in mind. "You don't seem to be as drained as I am, in this game. Maybe we can use that to our advantage. I know it's crazy, but can you help check to see if my magic is compatible to your own magic? Something along the lines of my magic not draining as much, so I cant take that amulet off of Cosmic. Maybe then the magic draining can stop. He could be bluffing and have that amulet be doing all of this." He said as he kissed her cheek. "What do you say? Do you want to fight together? We'll have to make it look like you're leaving, though. Just to confuse Cosmic, so he won't know a thing."

Frozen was caught off guard as Jade bounced back and slammed him full force into a wall. Frozen gasped from the impact as he fell to the ground. It took him some time, but he managed to get up off of the ground and panted from the loss of breath. "You're not too bad. That was a lot of power back then. I guess you're stronger than you look." He grinned slightly, before gritting his teeth and taking flight. He then began to fly straight towards Jade. "Too bad that won't work against me. Brains beats brawn any day!"

"That's exactly what I mean, The Alicorn Amulet corrupts its user."

Sunlight shook her head sadly "That won't work." "I may not seem drained, but that doesn't mean it's not taking my magic, my body just isn't depended on it like yours." "And not only that, the amulet can't be removed until he takes it off himself or dies." She suddenly put her hoof on her forehead and flinched from pain "...But...that doesn't mean I won't help you." "Because for some reason I can feel this game, its errors are like illness to me." "So...if I get to consecrate, I may be able to control it...." "...and rewrite the rules of this world." she put her hoof back down "I could maybe even overwrite Cosmic's spell if I'm right"

Jade didn't say anything and just stared at Frozen as he came towards him, but just before the impact, Jade launched himself upwards, ending up above Frozen, and in the split-second he had before Frozen would be able to react accordingly, he wrapped his hoofs around Frozen's open wing and attempted to dislocate it.

Cosmic could only look at the couple with an evil grin. "Say whatever you want, but it won't change a thing. All I can tell you is that this amulet is not corrupting me. I know what I want and I will win!" Dynamo ignored his opponent as he listened to Sunlight. "I guess even when he's using the amulet, his spell is affecting you too." He sighed while putting a hoof to his chin. "I guess I can't snatch the amulet when he and I fight. We'll have to figure something out." He nods, before his eyes widened in slightly surprise from her sudden remark. 'I guess this has something to do with her being artificial, but I can't say that out loud. If Cosmic finds out what she truly is, then he'll just pick on her and he'll let everyone know. I can't let him get away with this.' He thought as he gave her a serious, yet thankful expression. "I really appreciate the help, sweetheart. We'll just have to 'pretend' that you're leaving. Just follow my lead and we'll be set." He whispered softly as he placed a hoof upon her shoulder. "I appreciate the concern, but I still want you to go back. I'll take him down in no time and I'll be back, before you know it. I'm always with you, Sunny. Just like I know you'll always be with me. I love you, sweetheart." He leaned in and kissed her, before leaning back from the kiss and winks with a grin.

Frozen's blinked a few times as he saw Jade had vanished. He looked everywhere to find him, but was too late in noticing that Jade was right above him. He felt Jade wrapped his arms around Frozen's wings. Since Frozen couldn't fly, he felt the two of them crash land to the ground, but Jade was still holding onto his wings. Frozen began to panic as he knew he would lose his wings at this rate. 'I can't let him do this. I have to get out of this somehow. Come on! Think, think think!' Try as he might, Frozen couldn't think of a plan to escape from Jade's hold. Frozen began to panic, but took a breath to try and calm down. 'I just need to think. Every strategy can get you out of these situations. I just need to use my head and think.' He suddenly smirked as he knew what he had to do. 'Why didn't I think of that in the first place.' He leaned back into the hold and slammed the back of his head into Jade's face. As the hit made impact, Frozen placed his hooves on the back of his head. He felt the hold was weakening, so he managed to crawl away, but he still felt pain in the back of his head. "Ow! What is your face made of steel or something?" He asked as Button grabbed Frozen by the arms and wings, so the bully wouldn't escape.

"You're too late. I already called the authorities and they'll be here in just a few minutes. I won't allow you and your friend to arrive and try to trash my arcade." He said before looking up to Jade. "I thank you for the help, but just keep him tied up. I know you're mad, but violence isn't the answer, okay? If something happened to Frozen, then Cosmic will probably hurt your sister. You don't want that, right? Just let Dynamo handle Cosmic and everything will be okay." He said to reassure the green Pegasus.

Sunlight played along "Just be careful." she said with worried tone before turning towards where the portal was and walking towards it, but when she reached it, instead of jumping in, she made sure Cosmic couldn't see her and walked past it and hid out of sight. When hidden, Sunlight sat down and closed her eyes, focusing on the new information as best as she could, but this took her mind away from everything else, causing her 'Disguise' to disappear and few other not-essential things to turn off. After a minute or two, Sunlight had gotten control of the world around her, she was able to change Cosmic's spell's effect in the world, decreasing the magic drain, but not getting fully rid of it, the magic was too strong. She then focused herself on Cosmic and Dynamo, she could tell where they were, what they were doing and even hear their thoughts. She focused on Dynamo and tested if she could communicate with him through his mind, "Dynamo, if you hear me, don't say anything." "I'm now in control of this place, Cosmic's magic is too strong for me to fully remove, but I have slowed the draining down." "I will try to help you by changing the world to your advance and telling you what Cosmic plans to do." she then chuckled to herself "Also, don't think about anything you don't want me to know, i can hear it"

Jade didn't make any sound when the two pegasi crashed to the floor, nor when he got hit to the face by Frozen, but it hurt enough to force him to release his hold and pull his head back, and he could feel blood dripping from his muzzle, but that was all. Jade let Frozen to crawl away, but when Button took hold of him and tried to convince him to not keep going, Jade shook his head and spoke with little less threatening tone than before "Don't be stupid." He walked in front of Frozen and started down at him "King doesn't care about his pawns." He turned around "Besides, he already hurt her by making her part of this." Then with a quick kick of his hind leg, Jade knocked Frozen out cold and started walking towards the portal, but before he could reach it, he slowed down and just collapsed.
