"The fight with Lobo changed me... I started thinking weirdly, and seeing his point.... It was soon after that, I went to find her.... the only woman I truly loved... Find her... and fix everything I had done. It was the least a brother could do..." -- Setoku, reflecting to Luke why he abandoned Hueco Mundo a second time.

Chapter 0
: Epilogue of the Forgotten Arc

The fight was over in moments, Luke observed. He and Avathos stood by, watching as Lobo changed form, running toward his brother, teeth pulled back into a snarl. Such hatred, but... It was misplaced. Setoku kicked his wings once, soaring high into the air, Lobo sliding through where he was.... This was her fault - This whole thing... was her fault.

-----------------Home of the Shinamori; The 1800s---------------

Eshilieth pressed into Stray, embracing her close, before pressing her lips to her cheek. Youkai may of detested the whole Stray and Setoku deal, but she would murder Eshilieth for this. But she couldn't help herself - This girl, no, this Woman, Sara, she was power. She was fear, she was everything Eshilieth wanted of Youkai.... but far more stronger... And she was still mortal! This woman was why Ivy was the way she was, a living puppet, with the latent feelings of Eshilieth herself. Which was why Ivy lusted after Setoku, and raped Sara not long ago.... It wasn't so much that Ivy herself wanted too, she needed too. She fed off Eshilieths true feelings to survive... and she was commanded to do so.

"Eshilieth, my dear... What if someone finds out what we are doing...?"

Sara asked, her body still trembling in Eshilieth's arms. Too this, Eshilieth merely smiled, licking her own lips slowly. The beatuy was, Setoku would be dealt with soon, Eshilieth was going to try him next, but she eased Sara's worries the only way she knew how.... Pressing her lips into her own, and slowly, Sara's eyes begun to close, her mind clearing. Slowly, the two fell back onto the animal skins laid out on the floor that served as Sara and Setoku's bed. Unknown that standing too the side of the Door was Lobo, crossing his arms and sighing quietly...

"Mother.... Why....?"

Lobo felt his heart skip a beat, his chest heaving. He wanted to stop this, to wring Eshilieth's neck.... Too beg his mother to stop this, but he could not. His brother was his everything... But their Mother... was frightening. She ordered him to allow this, to act like he never saw anything. She promised to deal with it, one way or another. His eyes slowly opened, it was then he decided... He would kill Mother - She was manipulating them all, his savior, his Sisters.... It had to be him.... no one else could do it....

"Brother.... For you, and Sara..."

---------------------------------------------------------------

Luke was pulled back to the here and now, as Setoku and Lobo crashed into each other, Setoku's wings closing around Lobo, holding him in place, as he spoke.

"Segunda.... Etapa...."

A curtain of purple energy surrounded the two, and Luke heaved a sigh, before he and Avathos vanished from the scene, appearing seconds later, Luke standing with two fingers pressed to Setoku's forehead, stopping him in place, and Lobo was pulled back and held in place by Avathos.

"You failed, Lobo. Clearly Hueco Mundo is not yours anymore...."

Lobo's eyes grew wide, as he fought against the hold Avathos held him in. No! Hueco Mundo was his! Nikana had to be stopped! Setoku lacked the foresight, the calm and collective demeanor to do it himself! He had become nothing but a warlord now... Just as Luke intended.

"Brother! You have to save her...! Do you understand?!"

Liuke's eyes grew wide, in sync with Setoku's, but Luke couldn't have this - Not now, not ever. Luke turned, and crashed into Lobo.

--Chapter Zero, End--

-----------------------The Real World - Bount Mansion ::Current Era::------------------

Lyonin stood on the roof of the building, Joseph and Solvious directly opposite of him. Unlike him, they were smirking, while Lyonin was breathing heavily. His Bankai sealed, his kimono and former captains haori tore apart at random. Why did this happen? He was trying to get to Hueco Mundo, save Stray from Setoku, and somehow, he ended up before these two Bount. And he couldn't understand it - Once Joseph and his own sword crashed... He could no longer use Bankai. Yet the two had said nothing so far...

"MOVE!!"

Lyonin screamed again, running forward and pulling back his sword, intent to cut through Joseph. He didn't have time to play these freaks games! He swung his sword forward, aiming for the man's neck - And just as quickly, his blade was stopped, by the back of Joseph's arm. And again, the man smiled. Lyonin suddenly let out a roar, and just as quickly, it stopped, as he felt a pressure in his chest. Looking down, he saw a rapier poking out... where his heart should of been....

"Wha---"

A voice, girly and innocent, echoed behind him. But he could hear the evil in it, knew it did not bode well for him... or.... Stray..

"Oh! So this is the Shinigami who Stray once loved... Well, we can't have that, can we..? Sarah... This is the man who your mother once loved...! See?"

Sarah...? Lyonin frowned visibly, his breathing slowing. That was Stray's born name... wasn't it? It was also....

"Ah I see, Auntie Eshilieth. Well, I see her tastes are quite low, especially compared to what she had with You, or Daddy. Oh well.... Goodbye, Former Captain-kun. Do not worry, Stray will be just fine."

And Lyonin felt it, a sword suddenly slide down his chest, bisecting him from the right shoulder, to the left hip. His eyes went from wide to half-mass, as he felt blood trickle down between his lips. The sword that cut him... It was Shinigami... And the reiatsu....

"Setoku... you... finally...."

Lyonin hit the ground, trying to reach past the Shinigami girl, past her, to the woman he saw behind her, and the child at her side. Was this truly it...? Was he going to lose his wife and child once more...? But for good? No... not like this.... He couldn't eve-----

"Enough."

Eshilieth stepped over the man as he reached forward, and stabbed her sword into the man's neck. The plan... was finally underway.

"She was always a thorn in my side.... Yet I loved her, just as much as Stray. It's funny, though. I always had this feeling... That she, not Sara, would be my doom..." -- Setoku, commenting about Eshilieth after his mortal death.

_-Lyonin's Final Stand-_

(That's right.... I killed off Lyonin. I'm sure Stray is gonna have my head, especially considering his death could not go the way I wanted to originally do it, due mainly to the fact Setoku is tied up elsewhere.... Thanks to Stray e.e. But, this is not an actual "Chapter" per ci in the End Saga, it's more of a farewell to, in my mind, the greatest RP'er I ever had the honor of Roleplaying with. He was the Main Character of the Green Book, the main Antagonist of Destruction's End, and played a pivotal role in the Origin Story of Stray.... These... are his final moments.)

You were blinded....

Lyonin could feel the life ebbing from his body, the darkness closing around his heart... But still, he heard her. He smelled her.... Was it.... really over? He was so close... yet so far. His body felt numb - No, there was no chance Stray's reiatsu would pump into his veins again... No way Setoku or her would show up to save him.... And his child....

You could see.

Wait... that wasn't Stray's voice... That was... Setoku's voice. That's right... his Mortal Enemy, his Brother... his... Friend..? Despite their past conflicts... it was Setoku's gruff acceptance of him that allowed something so beautiful to occur. So why...? Why did he feel his reiatsu on the wound across his chest..? It was a Shinigami who struck him down.... A... Child...

You were deafened...

Stray's voice echoed again. That's right.... A child! Setoku had three of them, if he wasn't mistaken. Two of which... became Shinigami. But... didn't they die...? During the Second Seritei Invasion...? What was their names...? The Darkness was not only suffocating him... It was impending his thoughts. One rose to become the Second Squad Captain.... Kurome... Izanaga... Yes! But he had a Lieutenant, as well.... It was... his Sister.... It was no use... His brain was shutting down - Never again would he see anything, anyway...

You could hear.


Setoku's voice..... That's right. He wasn't dead yet! Her name... Izanaga.... Sarah--- Sarah! Named for Setoku's first Mortal love! And Lyonin's un dead love... But... why? He didn't understand - Was she seeking vengeance for her father? No, Setoku did not care about those two... He only showed interest in one... The Quincy. So why..? Better yet.... How? How would dead children be of any use to the Bount? Yes... dead children.... Like his own.... who's name.... He couldn't remember! Slowly, everything grew darker, and Stray's voice echoed loudly in his head...

And you are broken...


Lyonin's hand gripped at nothing. She was right... He was broken. It was over - He had so much left to say, beyond petty words of expressing love - So much more than that - And his child... He would never get to see his child. Hold him... Watch him become a much better man than he, or his estranged uncle could ever be.... Slowly, the darkness starting edging back at these thoughts, and his eye's slowly opened. Tears building up with every shallow breath...

And at last... You are... Whole.


Setoku! That was it! It was---- His thought's stopped, as he forced himself up to his knee's, gazing at the figures of Joseph and Solvious before him. Solvious holding a look of contempt, and Joseph, smiling, as if knowingly. Lyonin's eyes darted right, then left, and he caught it. A little female, with bright purple irises.... And a look, so similar too her fathers... And, oddly enough.... Her namesakes, as well. Her black Shinigami kamishimo blowing in an invisible wind. His lips moved, yet not sound came out.... But... Sarah's eyes went wide...

Goodbye, Daddy.


Lyonin's own eyes suddenly opened wider, as Joseph shoved his blade dead center of Lyonin's chest - Ritsuka...! His son! He heard him! Lyonin let out a scream, as Reishi enveloped his body, causing Sarah to cover her eyes, but only widening the smile on Joseph's face. It was over in seconds.... The flash glowing dimmer - And Sarah, feeling Erikai's hand on her shoulder....

Forgive me, Stray.... Ritsuka... I... will always... love you..


"It's over, Lady Eshilieth..."

Standing behind what was once the corpse of perhaps the greatest Shinigami to ever live, Eshilieth smiled widely, pulling up her dress to kneel down, as the ashes that were once Lyonin Shidaka dispersed into the wind - Causing her to momentarily look just like Youkai....

"You two did well, Solvious, Joseph. Let us begin, shall we? The route to the plan... Killing Mother... and claiming this world as our ow----"

Eshilieth stopped, as a red beam of energy crashed directly in-front of her, where Lyonin's ashes had once rested. This reiatsu... it was....

"Erikai! What do you think you're doing, sweetheart..?"

Eshilieth asked, putting on her sweetest accent. But as she turned to look at the girls, she froze. Standing stock still where she'd last seen her, Sarah had her Zanpakutou rose over her head, tears filling those purple eyes, her mouth covered by Erikai, as she tried to scream out the name of her sword - Had Erikai saved Eshilieth's life...? Excellent, she knew she was right ressurecting her, despite the other Bount's initial fear. But that fear soon became real, once she noted Erikai too, had tears in her eyes.

"Honorable Shidaka Lyonin... Thank you for this... You have.. given my sister her dream.... And my mind, can rest. Momma Stray.... loves us...."

Eshilieth slowly rose back to her feet, her eyes wide. When...? Lyonin never once said a word - No, wait... that was incorrect, he mouthed something to the daughters of Setoku, or Daughter.... She hadn't even realized Erikai was here.

"By the honor of the Quincy.... Eshilieth, the Queen of Blades... We will stop your plan..."

And with that, the two girls were gone - Eshilieth just stared, unable to comprehend what had just happened. Honor of the Quincy...? Whom? That fool Fujita Gorou? Ha, he would not serve a Quincy that obviously has Bount corruption in her reishi - Especially one that died over 100 years ago! It was Joseph who broke the silence, though. And shattered Eshilieth's thoughts.

"Summon Ivy, mistress. Our main crutch in the plan may be gone... But, we will not be stopped by two angst female children. Do you understand?"

Eshilieth's eyes slowly lost focus, before regaining it once more, focused now, on Joseph Kariya. Who was he to order her around? Ivy was her family! She might of lost two of them now, much like Momma Youkai lost Lobo then Setoku, but her family, unlike Momma Youkais... Would never die. Nor be ordered by an outsider!

"Watch your tongue, child of Kariya. Know your place."

Joseph merely raised an eyebrow, before his body faded, and appeared no more than two inches from Eshilieth, his hand shooting out, and closing around her throat, tightly. His crimson eyes burrowing into Eshilieth's own, causing her to flinch, slightly.

"Know your place, Experiment of the Humans. I am the one who saved your "grandmother" and by extension, your "Mother." You ever disobey me again, Eshilieth, Queen of Blades, I will show you just why.... The Kariya name is akin to God's among the Bount."

Eshilieth's eyes went, and for the first time in her life... She was truly... Afraid. Was this how they treated Momma Youkai...? Is this why she was the way she was...? No... it was something else. No matter, she would have her time... Soon. She would take everything Momma Youkai did... And Improve it. She would have all her family back. Lobo, Setoku, Stray, Jen, Ivy... All of them... They would all serve under her this time around, though....

"As you wish.... my lord..."

Re: ::End::

Post by Setoku on Sat Aug 13, 2016 7:30 pm

Alright, finally, we've gotten through 65-70% of the story! So you know what that means...? Right...?

....No? Well screw you guys Sad! It means the final QnA! After this, the final section of ::End:: Shall be underway. The deaths of the Shinamori, will it happen?! Will Jen, Ivy, Eshilieth, Setoku, Lobo, and Stray die in this final book?! Will they all live?! Is Lyonin not really dead and gonna pull a classic Naruto-esque move and come back to life?! IS LUKE-SEMPAI OBSESSED WITH NARUTO?! Find out this, and more...! Now! ..... Ok, maybe not all of it... But some interesting stuff, no matter :P

1. Did ::End:: Go the way you originally wanted it...?
No, it did not. End wasn't even supposed to happen, actually. It had a different title, a different premise, and much better writing.

2. Uhh.... how so? Well, simple. See, Lyonin and Stray got together, causing me to have to change the whole premise of all the Origins. The Green Book originally started out to be an Origin of Stray, Setoku and Lobo. No Youki (Youkai) no Eshilieth, Ivy, Jen, et. all, but, once Lyonin and Stray got together, I had to quickly come up with a much better alternative. Too be honest, I particularly like the current story, the whole Romeo and Juliet deal.

3. How much different we talking here...?
Again, nothing major. Instead of Youkai being the danger, is was going to be Lobo and Luke. See, Setoku was supposed to die at the hands of a Hitokiri, and begged Lobo to protect 'Sara.' He agreed, and ended up accidentally killing her. (....Narutoish, eh? But as you all see, that story begun LONG before Obito even had a Manga chapter e.e) The deed drove him insane, and once Setoku regained his mortal memories, he sought to kill Lobo and Luke. Stray was never going to play to big of a role in the stories.

4. So Youkai, Ivy, Eshilieth and all them... Where did they come from?

Youkai, Ivy and Eshilieth were friends of Stray - From some other RP. She mentioned them one day, so I capitalized and asked to use them. Of course, she granted it, and I expanded their origins and gave them a more Bleach related role. As for Jen, that's all Wolfie there - The brilliant writer she is, allowed me to use my crap writing and add her to the family on Stray's behest!

5. So... Setoku, I noticed your chapters seem... kinda... plagiarism-ish....? Yeah, I'm aware. I did rip off a few portions of Bleach for the whole Setoku V Lyonin V Stray, and took bits from Naruto for the Lobo V Setoku.... And a chunk of Setoku's mortal life (IE: Pretty much only the Shinsengumi) was lifted from Rouroni Kenshin.

6. So... what was the worst part of writing these tales? Real Life. Between Stray coming and going, the vanishing of Lyonin and the multiple deaths of the board, I pretty much wanted to give up every story, long before the end.

7. So... your story outdoes your longest one... Is it over?
No, I can't say how many more chapters... But if I had to guess, 10, pretty much. Then it's over.

8. Where did the Old Arrancar come from? Oh, fun. I created some of them - Korin-Ailden, Kazekaza, and Zagarus myself, a long time ago (Like, we talking early 2000s, prolly earliest in '03.) Zagarus was the leader of a Roleplay empire known as "Mardonia" - Kazekaza was his scientist, and Korin-Ailden was his assassin. Sky.Leory, was a RP'er in my empire who succeeded upon Zagarus' death, and attempted to overthrow the new leaders (Some girl named Anasandri) postion, but failed. Nikana (Anasandri's RL little Sister) took over the empire once Anasandri was killed. And Dante was those two's RL big brother. I didn't ask them, but I used them all anyway! Stop me Anasandri! (...She wont. She grew up a long time ago and retired from RP back in.... '06ish, I think. Dante even earlier... And Nikana, well, she's an adult by now, so I'm sure she grew past it too. As for Sky Leroy, pfft. Who cares.)

9. Your pacing is all over the place.... Why? Why indeed. Real Life is a major factor. I have a little demon now (Literally... Makes Stray look like a sweet girl next door) thus less time to focus on writing. But I try, and do what I can to complete the story. This last bit will take the longest, though, cuz I want each chapter to reflect my old writing style... a sort of final farewell.

10. Do you still have support from LSM and the Mods on this board? I myself? Dunno. I talk to LSM every now and again, and hell, even still play WoB now and again (Was on it a couple days ago :D) But beyond that.... I doubt I got his full support. But like I always say "I am the great Setoku-sama. Permission to a god is about as likely as permission from the savior... IE: LSM"

And final Question, just for giggles!

Would you date Stray RL?

HA! Actually, I probably would. She is my type, over the keyboard anyway - I truly do not know what she looks like, or how she actually is... But hell, if her online persona matches her RL one...? Oh yeah, I wouldn't care what she looked like. Or if she was even a he. I'd go for it.

straywolf184: I think I shared a few pics on the forum, but hey, if you want my FB you know how to reach me (sort of...). In any case, He'd probably wind up with Lyo before me guys - I like femininity way too much and while he may try, he can never look as beautiful as Eshilieth. ;D


Lyonin too?

....Oh yes. In a heartbeat. I wouldn't date him per ci.... more along the lines of illegally drug him and fondle him in his sleep. Then tell him about it afterwards, and if he commented he didn't like it, I could just shrug and say "It's done."

How about Michiyo?


......What about Nao-chan? Most likely no, she's actually too young for me RL. Online it's different, it's all writing and guises, but in actuality, she has her life, and I respect that - And seriously, way too young for me.

Isn't Lyonin younger...?

.....That's different. I'd willingly go to jail just to pedophile him if I had too. God I love Lyonin <3

....Dude... Seriously?!

Nah, kidding.... OR MAYBE IM NOT! Yeah, but I am kidding....
NO IM NOT! .... Ahhh, I am :P!  .......But no, seriously, I'm not kidding. I would do things to Lyonin that would put me in jail for the next 1,000 years.... Worth it :o

Eshilieth?


.......She's not even real to me, I kinda created her for this board... So yes. Anyone I created... I would DESTROY.

Stray: Oh hell the ---- no...


LSM?


......Yes. I would show him how Tae-Kwon-Doe is done, finish it off with a little Kenjitsu, and trim that beard of smexy for him.... Oh! You mean sleep with him?  Yes, yes I would.... I would DESTROY him too.

You're gay, aren't you?

No, actually. But some men.... My god, just can't help yourself.

In your case, boys too, apparently.

YOU CANT PROVE THAT! -Hides picture of Lyonin-


And the final section

Luke indeed likes Naruto. He had a board awhile back if some of you remember, about Naruto :D! I was a Seven Swordsman (Of course!) with the Needle Sword. And sadly, Lyonin will not be pulling a Naruto and coming back. He's dead, finite incantum. If he comes back and chooses to ignore my story? That's fine, too. But as to the story, he is dead. And..... Most of the Shinamori are most likely gonna die - But maybe not. It may actually surprise you who I have in mind to keep alive. (And no, it's not Setoku. He's dead - Been saying it awhile now. Not Stray either, I prolly just off her for being a pain :P <3 ya Stray :D) But yeah... Lyonin is sadly dead. It's not the way I wanted it, not even him I wanted dead, but with what I have to work with, it's the best I could do atm. Sorry Lyo-chan Sad

And of course! Pictures! Well, of charries you might wanna know what they look like..... I don't draw myself (C'mon, I would of made my first two stories into Manga... I truly think they are that good. Could be wrong... But c'mon, who wouldn't want Manga forms of Destructions End and The Green Book?) Stray may not agree with my pictures, but by my creation and mind, these are the most similar I can think of:

Youkai:
Spoiler:

Eshilieth and Ivy (Eshilieth left, Ivy right):
Spoiler:

Setoku (Mortal Life):
Spoiler:

Nikana:
Spoiler:

Lobo (Mortal):
Spoiler:

Setoku x Stray: (Mortals, of course e.e):
Spoiler:

And for fun, those two in Death:

Oh so much fun!

XV is taking me longer than I had hoped, but it is coming! Tomorrow or so, I will post another forgotten chapter too tide anyone still reading over. It will be the alternate death of Lyonin, more I wanted done and a clearer look at the Bount and the Lyonin/Setoku/Stray love affair, and some Quincy tid-bits. Also a clearer look at Eshilieths motives. Most of the chapter is still canon, minus a bit between Lyonin and bount. I'll show where when we get there :D

Forgotten Chapter: Lyonin's Folly toward End

"Did you get enough?
Did you hurt yourself?
Did you call it off?
Did you hate yourself..?
Why..... why did you run away...?" ---- Excerpt from Sara's Diary on Setoku's departure... A tear staining the page.


"Why....?"

Lyonin rested his back against a pillar that stood before the gate. He trained enough.... This was it. The final meeting. If he couldn't at least have Stray.... he would protect her from him, keep him away... forever. Even if that meant self sacrifice. But was it true...? What that Sinner had told him? Is that why Setoku did what he did. The words seem to run through his head, non stop as of late... The words of the Sinner Prince....

"The wreckage of what was once, is now gone. He is a Demon of the past... a Demon your mortal self created."

But why...? They fought in the Bakumatsu, he knew that much... But from the way Luke spoke... They had crossed blades before. Lyonin closed his eyes, letting the back of his head rest against the pillar.... But... when...?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The boy darted through the forest, his eyes dead ahead. His father trained him for this... His family destiny carried this into him. He was a Demond Slayer! And these... Parasites were not much better than a Demond. The spirits seem to keep a wide birth around them, their eyes glowed with a color akin to blood... And their life force... It felt... Hollow, empty. Devouring any mortal to fill that hole. And he finally came across one! It didn't seem to notice the boy, though. It was running deep into the woods... As if... afraid of something. But Lyonin felt his presence.... he wasn't far off now. The boy slid across the trail, his hand dropping to his Katana as the man came in sight, dressed as normal mortal. Insulting! The kill would be quick, unexpected.... The way his father taught him! His eyes narrowed, as he lightly flicked the Tsuba of his katana, feeling it unclick from the saya itself - Battoujutsu would be the best way. Five feet.... Four....

"That's close enough...."

Another boy's voice echoed from the Tree's, as a boy, dressed in a light blue Kimono and dirty gray pants seemingly stepped from behind a tree, and blood shot up between the man and the boy. The boy's shoulder's jerked, and Lyonin caught it for a moment, a small wakizashi in his hands.... Had.... Had he assassinated that man..?!

"Nice, Setoku-chan! No wonder Youkai-sama uses us as patrol... I didn't even sense the man!"

A girls voice echoed from behind the boy... But it seemed older, if only slightly. The boy didn't answer, his eyes sliding toward Lyonin, causing Lyonin to come to a complete stop, before rising to his full height. The sword still ready to draw.

"...Who are you... Boy?"

Lyonin growled, slowly drawing his sword. The answer depended on the results.... A girl pushed from the bushes, her arms coming around the boy's neck, as she pressed her lips to his cheek -- And Lyonin's blood ran cold. These were mortals.... Yet... the area was quiet... and the Demonds.... they kept an impressively wide berth.... At least five miles all around. And their auras......

"Nevermind my love... We have company."

The girl raised an eyebrow, before her own eyes followed his to Lyonin. And a smile touched her lips.

"He looks cute... Wielding a sword at us like he's a warrior... Setoku-chan... Allow me..."

The boy - Setoku - Arm suddenly shot up, grabbing the girls arm around his neck, and he pointed his Wakizashi to Lyonin.

"No, Sara.... This boy.... He's different.... He's a... Slayer. His stance... the look in his eyes... This boy has killed several people. A Slayer, nothing more. I will handle this..."

Setoku stepped forward, a smile, touching his lips. And slowly he tilted his head. Lyonin bit his own lip - Trying to feel the emotions, as any swordsman.... But... all he could feel was.. Joy...? Yes, no regret.... no fear... Just pure excitement.

"....And you are a practitioner of Tengen. In order to control such emotion, you must of killed many without concern.... You must be eliminated."

Setoku started giggling, and shot forward - Lyonin's breath catching short, as he - himself - shot forward, their swords slamming into each other. It was but a moment their swords were locked - And a loud clink of metal filled the area. Lyonin felt himself stumble forward, his own eyes wide.... His... His sword.... His eyes searched around, catching sight of Setoku, who stood in place, a small smile on his face... As the broken half of the sword fell directly at his feet. The girl stood in place, her own eyes wide.... As if she herself was afraid as well.... How...?

"Your sword is inferior... How you ended anything with it I will never know. Come, Sara. He is not worth killing."

The boy turned slightly, wrapping a single arm around the girls waist - Her own body seemingly moving by his accord instead of her own - And they were gone. Lyonin slowly pushed himself up... Placing what remained of his sword back into it's saya.... and frowning. He needed to return to the Temple... and replace his sword.... and ask his Father.... Just... who... or what... they were....

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Lyonin's eyes snapped open, as he let out a loud exhale. He had fallen asleep. That dream.... Had that happened...? He couldn't be sure.... It was from a time he shouldn't even remember anyway. And why.... Were the Hollow keeping such a distance from those two, anyway...? Something he would have to think of later. The Gate.... the Gate to Kyoto was ready. It was time to go. First Kyoto.... And then Hueco Mundo.... And back.... Too that place...

Forgotten Chapter: Act II.

"I will never forgive you....
I will ruin you...
I will be the last thing you...
.....Will ever..... See...." ----- Small excerpt from Eshilieths Journal, regarding her estranged Brother.

Lyonin darted through the Precipice world, his eyes darting side too side, occasionally checking behind him to make sure "it" wasn't hot on his trail. He hated this method of traveling, and could honestly say for the first time he missed having a hell butterfly. But that was in the past now, he needed to think of his future... And his childs. If it was true what Setoku had said, waiting at the highest point of Hueco Mundo - Then time was short. Off in the distance, he could see it... The light signaling the end.

"Almost there, Stray... Ritsuka... Wait for me!"

At those words, his world seem to collapse, as he was pulled back to a time before his death.....

----2 days before the Ikedaya Affair, Kyoto----

The man stood, two swords shoved into his obi. Wearing a faded purple kimono, and a gray hakama - Lyonin stood out. But not in a bad way - He looked like every other person that walked the streets at night. His black hair was pulled back into a pony-tail, and his eyes only half open - It was starting to rain, a common theme here in Kyoto, ever since the start of the Bosshin Wars. Lyonin sighed heavily, before leaning back into a wall - Twenty feet away, a stone staircase leading to a temple was just in his sights.

"So the wolves have arrived, huh...?"

Lyonin said to himself, wondering if any of 'their' kind was among them.Why were the beasts so thick in Japan as of late, anyway? Was it the war? Maybe.... Even the Demonds seemed to be excited around it. But, there was nothing he could do about them all... Even if he wanted too. His eyes fully closed for a few moments, before voices, in the direction of the Stone Steps, peeked his interest.

"Setoku-no-dachi, you say? Really?"

Said an older man, clearly shocked at some news, but it was the younger man who Lyonin was after. He had no aura about him... Just... a dead spot in life. And that could only mean one thing. The young man spoke, as Lyonin slowly drew his sword, peeking over to see two men, dressed in black and greys, umbrella's to shield from the rain, headed up the stairs.

"That's right, Kefka. Tuberculosis. Hard to believe, but most of our greatest warriors have it. Including thirds female. What's her name?"

No one ever answered, as Lyonin's eyes fully opened, and he shot forward through the rain, inching closer every step, time seeming to slow down - The two individuals threw their umbrella's up, and reached to their sides, freezing once they realized they had no weapons, but by then, it was too late. Blood splattered across Lyonin's face and chest as he quickly sweeped his sword left, then right, bisecting the two men where they stood - Turning with the final swing, and shoving his Katana back into it's saya, and walking off, as blood begun to pool up around the dead bodies, and slowly trickle down the stairs.

"Forgive me, Mortal and Immortal. Tenchu."

"Tenchu" The word for heavenly punishment - Lyonin only used it in case witnesses saw his attack - It was a trait of the Patriots, after all, to claim divine retribution for their war. And it would keep the Wolves of Mibu off his back for awhile if the murders came to light. Lyonin turned down an alley way, taking a breath. He could taste the blood in the air, smell the iron of so much blood loss. This war was pointless, and he wasn't interested. Japan was Japan, why try moving it away from that?

"It's a shame, Demond Slayer.... I thought it would be harder to find you."

Lyonin stopped, eyes wide. That voice... It was... female? Yes - But as if trying to disguise itself as male. He slowly turned, seeing a small girl, with a flower held in her palm, and she smiled, before pulling it close to smell, and throwing her arm out, causing the sakura blossom to fall apart and the petals to dance around her. She slowly drew her sword, and smiled wider.

"I am Audrey Mitchell of the Shinsengumi, and this is your end, Shi---"

The girls cheeks suddenly turned bright red, as she begun to cough hysterically, using her sleeve to cover her mouth. Once she pulled the sleeve away, blood was slowly trickling down her chin - She took a step forward, pulling up her sword, before a hand grabbed her shoulder.

"You are far to ill to continue, my dear. Shidaka Lyonin shall die by my hands tonight."

Lyonin quickly drew his Katana, as a No-dachi collided into it, aimed for his chest. This was.....

"Shinamori Setoku, of the No-dachi. An honor."

Lyonin said, as he turned his blade to the left, causing Setoku's own to slide off. The two stared each other down another moment, before Setoku stabbed forward - Lyonin jumped left, narrowly avoiding the stab, and brought his Katana down to catch the No-dachi as it swung in to slam into his rib-cage. Lyonin spun his body around, and jumped back - Looking behind him to see Shinsengumi close off the closest exit, lanterns held up to drench the area in the light. This was bad.....

"Goodbye, Fool."

Setoku's words reached Lyonin, and he turned his head slightly right to see Setoku charging, No-dachi pulled up on his left side, closing in for the Gatatsou, Shinsengumi's one move to end a fight quickly. Lyonin himself charged toward Setoku, and their swords collided. Sparks kicking up between the metal blades, as they slowly stepped past each other. Lyonin turned, watching as Setoku took two steps forward, and knelled down - Starting to cough.



----------------

Lyonin's conscious snapped back into reality, as he felt the cold air of Tokyo hit his skin as he exited the Precipice World. His sandaled feet coming to rest on an extended window arch of a Skyscraper. He looked left, and then right. Everything was clear.... He would open the portal to Hueco Mundo here.

"I'm coming, Stray..."

Lyonin took a deep breath, before drawing his Katana, pulling it high above his head, and feeling the impact of another sword against his own.Lyonin pushed up with his blade, feeling the other blade slide off - He quickly turned his body around, catching as Ivy landed from a flip at the otherside of the window seal. Her sword was held in both hands, and a frown was on her features.

"Shidakai Lyonin... This is your... Last duel."

The girl shot forward, sword pulled back.

Surprise intermission!!!!

So anyway, this was the last Entry into Lyonin's second past story. It was going to be three... But, let's just say I found out I need to rush - Hence the lack of full cleaning and editing of the posts.

I am now working on the FINAL three Chapters of ::End::. The tale of Setoku and Stray ends with these three chapters, thus leaving a lot of what I wanted to do unfulfilled - Maybe I'll do them later, or maybe not.... I will list the things missing that were supposed to be filled in, but never did - For everyone who stuck around, from the insane large first stories, too this mix bag of stories.... Thank you! And for Stray... It's been truly fun keeping this story going with your help. You were my rod here, keeping me tethered here even when I didn't have enough time to perfect everything <3 Thanks for everything, Princess <3

What I wanted to put in, and I couldn't:
--- Lyonin and Kurome's falling out. - If people remember, in my early stories, Lyonin was a captain in the Gotei 13.Suddenly though, that changed. Why? What happened? Well, to make a long story short, after the Romeo and Juliet Wars, Kurome Izanaga was falling victim to his Hollow Affliction, and blamed Lyonin for not killing his father. This culminated in a duel that destroyed an outer district of the Seritai.

---Stray and Setoku's mortal love life.-- That's right, Stray and Setoku were mortal, and were in love (Clearly.) They were each other's firsts, and both were so in love with each other they lived their lives devoted to the family that put them together. While Youkai pushed Setoku away intentionally, she kept Stray close - And sought to create a true war because of love, and thus bring about the Golden Age of the Hollow Empire.....

---Fall of Mardonia.-- Yes, the fall of the Empire Anasandri, Nikana, and Zagarus came from. Not only them, but Kazekaza, Sky Leeroy, Korin Ailden, and Dante came from as well. There was a reason why most of the first ten espada came from that particular empire, and it was because of Nikana' fall as Empress of the empire, triggered by Sky Leeroy and Dante. It was only a chapter long, (Well the basic) and I might still post it at the end, but eh...

---The events leading up too Eshilieth's rise too power--. Yes, the Gila Bend War was supposed to be the final part of the story, but like it got snippets at the start of a few chapters through out the Circle Saga, that might be all it gets in the end. But there is a reason for that, essentially....

---The reason for Ritsuka's appearance.--. All through the circle series it's been hinted and even stated Ritsuka was killed by the current second squad captain - It was a plot hole that developed long after I begun ::End:: and one I was going to fix.... But, it'll prolly be explained in one of the last three chapters... I dunno.

---The fate of the Shinamori Children--. Yes, I wanted too address a unique fate too each of Setoku's children.... But I ran out of breathing room, so instead it'll all be summed up in the final chapter... Sorry people Sad

And finally, the fate of Isabella/Michiyo. - Sadly, I never got a hold of Michiyo to work this out, but her final fate remains unknown, unless she says otherwards before the story ends (Or even after... Whateves) but yeah....

And oh yeah - Jen's introduction too the Mortal Shinamori -- This is what I wanted to do most of all, show how Jen was found by Stray and Setoku, and hint at the fact she was essentially Stray and Setoku's "Daughter." And what role she played in the overall scheme of things (It was important Sad ) But... oh well....

Coming soon - The final Chapters.... the ::End::

::End:: - The Kings Fall (1/3)


"Setoku... Promise me..."



Kyoto City - 22:00 AM - Year 3,499 - December 31st.


The sky was clear, a crimson full moon starting it's descent behind the mountains in the distance. It was a familiar sight to the culmination of warriors from the Bakumatsu who would all collide here. The darkness, the silence, the cool air. It would leave the stirrings of war in any fighters mouth. The sky seem to go on forever, before a single hand seem to shatter a small section of it. The hand was pale, with red liquid caking around the fingertips - And after a moment, the area around the hand begun to shatter, exposing an odd tear in the spectrum above. The single hand suddenly faded, as the tear grew larger, exposing another blackness behind that - Where someone stood, dressed in white - A limp girl held close to his chest. Her hand gripping lightly at his chest, as the one standing stepped from the darkness beyond, into the crimson moonlight.

"Stay with me, Sara. Youkai has been extracted, Eshilieth and Ivy have been defeated... It's over..."

The man who spoke took a few more steps, as the tear behind him suddenly sucked in, and slowly closed. Another step, and he stopped, before kneeling down, his white hair covered in blood, his white shukasho stained with crimson. His breathing heavy.

"My regeneration has stopped... And so has yours. We need to go back to Hueco Mundo... And heal. But we did it...."

Setoku smiled, leaning down, and pressing his lips to Strays own. Her eyes flickered a moment, before closing, and leaning into him. Blood starting to pool, and roll down her cheek as they shared the passionate kiss. This moment would no doubt be perfect, if it wasn't for one thing. Another voice, this one gruff, and arrogant. Red Eyes gleamed from about thirty feet away, as the man spoke.

"Well, isn't this adorable! The King and Queen of the Hollow have finally united. I must say, I'm impressed! Solvious...."

Above the two figures in white, sharing a moment, another appeared, his sword pointed down, as he fell down upon the two, eyes wide, a sardonic smile on his face. After the years of war, the sacrifices of his kind to this man - It was over. Thanks to the experiments failure, she actually brought his end. The sword tip was cenimeters away, causing Solvious' eyes to grow ever wider, before a splash of crimson shot in front of him, and his breath was cut short. The two were gone, only to replaced by a sword extending from his throat.  Solvious hand came up, as his eyes shot side to side, grabbing the blade. What... just happened...? It was Stray who spoke, blood running down from her lips to her chin, her arms clenched around Setoku - Who both stood behind the now dying Solvious.

"Leave, your Queen has been defeated."

Stray slowly smiled after she spoke, licking the blood from her bottom lip, and closing her eyes. The fear of losing her child was finally gone, the loss of Lyonin, while devastating, had been avenged, And the anger that always boiled deep down, was removed. For the first time, she could finally think clearly. She suddenly felt her body jerk, as Setoku threw her away from him, and spun around on his heel, catching Joseph's blade against his own, Turning his head slightly, allowing his eyes to meet her own, he smirked.

"I love you, Stray. Now leave."

Stray;s eyes went wide for a moment - Leave? She couldn't! She could finally see clearly, fight with no more fear of loss - This is what she had been living for! She wouldn't leave Setoku to have all the fun. Not now... Not ever. Her eyes looked away from Setoku's own - And she bit her lip. Setoku's head turned back, and the way he spoke...

"Joseph Kariya.... Wasn't that your twin brother...? You really need to think things out before you attack me. Or die."

Setoku's right arm came up, catching a blade against his forearm - Causing sparks as the blade dragged against his skin - His left foot also tucked up, and caught a third blade under the knee, again, causing sparks to show up.

"You three cannot defeat me" - Setoku looked at each person, Joseph, and two unknown female assailants. Clearly they were all Bount. Each had no reiatsu Setoku could taste - But something was off.  Bount all had bright Red Eyes, but these women.... their eyes were a dull purple, and their skin paler than his own... As if... they were dead. It was Joseph who spoke, and the confidence in his voice was unsettling to Setoku.

"Your confidence will be your down fall - King Setoku. You haven't even defeated our "Queen" yet you proclaim such victory that you are undefeated? How narrow you think----"

"The dead who avoid hell all bow to me. Now go to sleep."

Blood shot out from Joseph's right arm, as his sword arm was severed at the shoulder - And the two females with him slid in half, as blood exploded from their stomachs - Behind Joseph, Setoku flicked his blade, sending off a bit of blood. His eyes following above him a moment, before he smiled.

"What made you think I never defeated your Queen in hell, Joseph?"

Stray smiled slowly, watching the three bodies fall toward the ground. Brutal as ever - Not to mention beyond arrogant. That was her brother though - Always thinking himself a god. But this time she'd allow his sense of trepidation. The victories he had achieved in hell... Even she had to admit she was slightly impressed with the flea. She went to speak, but felt a sharp pain in her spine, as a bright silver rapier pushed into her spine, and slowly slid out of her gut - Causing a splash of blood to take up some sight before her - And a voice that made her cringe.

"Lady Stray.... Youkai... is now mine."

Behind Stray, Eshilieth stood, hunched over, holding her rapier tightly, as it slid through her sister. Her breathing was heavy, and her normally blonde hair was bright white - Her features had faded from the beautiful girl Stray loved, to the Mother Stray once had. What did she mean Youkai was hers? How was she even here?! She herself had driven her sword through her head.... But if she was alive....

"SETOKU!"

But it was too late - Setoku's body was standing against some pressure, as blood exploded from his shoulder blade - But he hadn't fallen. Behind him, Ivy was puling her sword back, intent to finish him off. Setoku's body suddenly begun to flicker, as he made his escape from being open to an attack. After all they had done.... Was this.... the end?

(This chapter was somewhat short and all over the place. The next two will be structured - The reason this chapter is this way is strictly for Stray. Me and her had an RP in Hell, and never finished it off - So technically, this is kind of an epilogue to that e.e; But the final two will be more fleshed out :D)
