[Parker Evan -Eat THAT]

 

Parker had just finally managed to get back to the group, huffing all the while from the effort. Of course, that's when he notices not just bullets, but beams too. Ah son of a ****, he thinks. But he manages to kick off of God-knows-what and do a little spin as he dodges some beams. "HAH, eat THAT, whatever the hell it is that's throwing crap at us because hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha I have no idea what kind of bullet hell bull **** is going on here-" He shuts up to try and pay attention to the beat of the music. He loves music, granted, but this music, in a real life bullet hell, is killing him.

The bullets began to dwindle in number as large colorful beams of light began to shoot through the vacuum of space. Jin watched as the girl on the cosmic-colored bat were engulfed in one of the lasers. The light dissipated quickly, leaving the victims distorted but physically unharmed. If neither the bullets nor the lasers were doing anything more than temporarily disorienting their targets, then that meant the enemy wasn't trying to kill anyone. That was a step up from the event at the gateway. Jin squinted at the area the laser had emitted from. If they could follow the source of the lasers and bullets, they could potentially find whoever or whatever was making them. Jin wasn't great at range combat, but if he could locate their attacker, he could reach them easy and put a stop to the attack. Jin twisted his torso, his legs flailing mindlessly in the air. He swung his arms around wildly to redirect his position. Now, he could find another laser then he could

 

Something heavy careened into Jin. He choked on empty air; the breath taken out of him. His body spun on its own but was halted by a firm hand on his shoulders. Through his muddled confusion, Jin was briefly aware that someone was speaking. Had someone... tackled him? Blinking rapidly, Jin saw that the purple-haired person was directly in front of him. Xer were saying something about not punching the light, but what light? In the corner of Jin's eye he could see an ephemeral light right where he was just a moment ago. Unbeknownst to Jin, one of the lasers must have been fired directly at him while he searched for the group's attackers.

 

Jin smiled sheepishly.

"Thanks for the save!" he said, beaming. "Hey, before you go could you tell me your naaaaaaaa oh there xer go." The stranger had already left but not before shoving Jin out of the way of yet another beam of light. Jin cocked his head to the side. The stranger seemed a bit stiff, but not unkind. Maybe xe was like Lass, acting all cool and standoffish while also caring about xer friends as subtly as possible. That, or Jin was reading too much into people he had just met. Who knew? He sure didn't! Turning back towards the others, Jin scanned the area for signs of another attack.

Twilight Sparkle -- Space

[ dubwoofer substep ] - [ go go twilight! ]

 

 

After the initial barrage, it seemed like the attacker had changed tactics. Twilight was alarmed when Ray and her pokemon were struck by a second attack, but like the first, the laser beam didn't do much other than stun. Still... Rayla confirmed that the pink projectiles had an incredibly unpleasant dizzying effect.

 

"I'm glad you and Tsuki aren't physically injured. All we'll have to do now is get to the bottom of this!" Other than Tsuki, Twilight was the only one who was really adept at flying... but at the same time, it seemed that avoiding the beams and bullets was only a matter of sheet luck. Twilight steeled her nerves, focusing on the patterns and giving her wings a stretch before darting forward. The quicker they could get the source of the attacks, the quicker they could stop who or whatever was launching them. That way, no one else would have to be subjected to the headache-inducing barrage.

 

She didn't doubt that even Rainbow Dash would be impressed when she banked to the left, barrel-rolling over an incoming laser beam and swooping under another. She was sure it was the right direction, and, seeing a group of asteroids clustered in the distance, she felt that she was getting close!

Sorey - Space

[ ouch! ] - [ no seraphs active ]

 

He warned Jin a little too late! But a change in attack patterns stopped Sorey from going to check in on the red-haired man and instead forced him to focus on his own safety first. The beams were harder to avoid than they initially looked, and carelessly he found himself in the path of one and was knocked back! Dazed, with static in his head and a ringing in his ears, he couldn't even hear his seraphim trying to yell at him to regain his senses.

They're... actually getting through this?!

 

Now the man was starting to panic. They weren't getting hit as often as he'd hoped. One of them wasn't getting hit at all! This was really, really bad - he was going to get in trouble for sure, he just knew it!

 

One last chance - the finale of the song was coming up, so both beams and bullets went flying.

 

If this didn't work, well... he knew which song he'd play for them next.

Ray had a feeling that they were getting closer to the source of these attacks.

 

Mainly because now there were both beams and bullets headed straight for them. "No more messing around, Tsuki! It's time we got serious!"

 

And get serious, they did. The Lunala and her rider miraculously managed to dodge everything this time in an impressive display of aerial acrobatics, not unlike the ones they did while traversing Ultra Space. This was more like it. Perhaps now, they could figure out why they were being attacked.

 

Ray prayed to Arceus that the others came out okay as the song began to fade into silence...

For a second, he thinks he's got this. He thinks he's got the beat down, but it seems that the small girl with the weird creature is the only one who's faring in this part of the music. Just about everyone gets hit by something, and it's only a matter of time before Parker gets knocked in the gut by a beam. He continues to scream curses as he realizes he shouldn't have just jinxed himself. 

 

He wishes he were home, none of this day has been good so far. 

 

No no, it's just the past couple minutes, right? 

 

"DAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMIT-----" is all he could yell as he's sent a long ways back by the beam before he manages to get himself to float out of its way.

The source of the attacks became even more unclear as yet another wave of lasers burst through space. The bullets returned, zooming alongside the lasers to cover as much area as possible. Jin had learned how to swerve out of the way of the lasers by watching his comrades do so, but the addition of the bullets was too much for his brain to process at once. He twirled out of the reach of a laser, shifting his body to dodge another upcoming one when a rain of bullets hailed over his arm. Immediately, Jin could feel his brain fill with static. His head began to pound mercilessly as his body was sent flying backwards, his entire body spinning.  

 

Jin’s hand brushed against something solid and rough. Instinctively, Jin latched onto it. The haze in his mind fading slowly, but, after furiously blinking several times, he could make out the blurry shape of the space debris he had grabbed onto. In the distance, Jin could make out the shapes of the purple horse and the girl riding the space bat speeding towards the same general direction. Perhaps they were both close enough to see who the attacker was. That would explain why they were both heading into a very specific direction while everyone else was more spread out.  

 

Another bullet grazed Jin’s clothing. He let out a hiss as he ducked behind the debris just as a laser shot overhead. The intensity of the attacks was much greater than before, but why was that? With the blurriness now fading from his vision, Jin glanced towards the direction of his companions and shouted, “Either they were holding back onto now or they’re getting desperate!”

Alright, yeah, Ace thinks xe’s getting the hang of this. Twist and dodge and weave, focus into the pattern of this song and not the star-song, Alright, xe’s got it, just no more surprises--

 

The ****er adds bullets on the tail end of the lasers. Ace doesn’t readjust fast enough.

Xe slams xer hands over xer ears instinctively, only barely manages not to squeeze xer eyes shut, too. Xe knows it won’t help--the firewall-feeling is internal, not external--but it hurts, and xe needs to react somehow to try and make it stop.


Jin shouts something that is lost to the static in Ace’s mind. Xe barely twists out of an oncoming bolt of light, pattern broken. Hate hate HATE that--oh, I’m gonna kick this *******’s ass so hard when we find them.

Twilight -- In Space

[because of the extreme amount of bass] - [listeners' discretion is advised]

 

Sorey was hit a second time by a beam, but Twilight deftly swooped up and down to avoid both beams and bullets, tucking her wings in at the last second to avoid being blasted on several occasions. No time to look back and worry about the others! She could only trust them to hold their ground against the headache-inducing attacks. She could feel the slow but aggressive beat in her body the closer she got to its source, and only when she spotted a pink and black figure on a deserted space-rock did the music coincidentally begin to fade out and draw to a close.

 

The person she saw didn't seem out of place at all in this world: while he had a body, his head was a perfect black circle with a pink outline, a crown, and protruding pink horns. Twilight was quick to notice that he was the same color as the projectiles sent their way. Was he the cause of the song?

 

The alicorn stopped in midair, hovering near the rock but not landing on it just yet. "Hello! We're the eXtra-Dimensional Rescue Squad and we're here to help! It's wonderful music, but would you cease firing at us? Thank you!"

 

~

 

Further along, Sorey was still trying to shake out the static buzzer noise out of his head and when he finally regained enough of his senses to regain control of his flight, the song had begun to fade away (thankfully). 

 

Sorey, can you finally hear us?  asked Mikleo.

 

Sorey scoffed, pressed his fingertips into his forehead, then nodded. "Yeah."

 

All he needed to do now was catch up to Twilight. This patrol was already so eventful, and they've barely left the planet!

So they actually got through. It'd be a shame to hit them while they were still reeling from the previous song, but if they were anything like Cyan, at least one of them would get through the next song. Truth be told, the purple unicorn with wings wouldn't look too terribly out of place in Paradise, where he'd lived before ending up on this miserable asteroid, but those others? They'd stick out like sore thumbs...

 

"Hello! We're the eXtra-Dimensional Rescue Squad and we're here to help!" The winged unicorn speaking broke him out of his musings. "It's wonderful music, but would you cease firing at us? Thank you!"

 

That won't be too much of a problem, he thought to himself. After all, his next song didn't involve him firing at them. Still, he was very much flattered at the compliment to his music. "Thanks! Trust me, I've got plenty more sick beats where that came from. The name's Blixer by the way... and color me impressed - I haven't seen dodging like that since I saw this big-shot hero back home two years ago."

 

...yes, this song will do nicely. A different song began to play as the other strangers approached.

Tsuki and Ray flew in and caught up to Twilight quickly. "Whew... Those were some sick maneuvers you did, Twilight! Where'd you learn to fly like that?!"

 

"Perhaps that can be saved for another time, Rayla. She's found the one who attacked, and from what I hear..." Tsuki paused. "...just be on your guard."

The music faded into a distant hum. The magenta light emanating from the bullets and lasers fizzled out as the music ended, leaving the galaxy silent. Jin let out a sigh of relief, his head lazily lolling to the side. He liked a good fight, hell he loved the adrenaline and passion that came with fighting, but dodging projectiles in space was not what he would deem a fair fight. He was a close-ranged fighter so he was at a clear disadvantage against an enemy that was so far away he couldn't see them and even though he did have some abilities that let him fight across a distance he still needed a target.

 

Thankfully, some of his friends managed to find their attacker which was likely the reasons the assault suddenly halted. The purple flying horse was the first to approach the stranger. Her wings fanned outward as she began hovering a reasonable distance in front of him. Jin could see her mouth moving, it was likely she was greeting the stranger but Jin couldn't quite hear what she was saying. Jin was filled with the sudden need to get his feet on firm ground. He grunted, his limbs waving in jerky motions as his body spun slowly through space. It was nice that he didn't need oxygen to breath in space, but maneuvering his body with whatever strange spell the horse cast was proving to be abnormally difficult.

 

Jin continued to flail his arms, making a series of irritated noises before he finally managed to fling himself onto a nearby asteroid. He landed onto the rock face first, his teeth banging painfully against the gravel. His head thumped with pain, but Jin could not help but let out a whoop of success as he pulled his face free and began quickly repositioning his body.

 

"Hey!" Jin called, wobbly getting to his feet. "The music was pretty cool! Had a nice beat to it! Good light show too, but, uh, that wasn't really a fair fight. It's kinda rude to start shooting at people without any warning, you know. Now," Jin raised his knuckle fists and slammed them together, sparks flying from the contact. "If you want to have a real fun time, I can show you a thing or three."

Twilight -- Blixer's Asteroid

[ blissfully unaware ] - [ of round 2's imminent punching ]


"The name's Blixer by the way... and color me impressed - I haven't seen dodging like that since I saw this big-shot hero back home two years ago."

 

Twilight practically blushed through her fur at the compliment, and really had no time to answer before an impressed Rayla asked her where she learned to fly like that. "Oh, uh, a good friend named Rainbow Dash taught me a few tricks or two when I first got my wings...! Really, it was nothing too impressive compared to her, haha."

 

A new song began to play, this time with twinkling high notes befitting of an upbeat interstellar adventure. While Twilight could understand Tsuki's suspicions, it was too early to assume that Blixer was queuing up more lasers... right? Maybe he just liked having background music surround him, which surprisingly isn't completely unheard of in the multiverse. Some people just had their own musical themes playing around them, constantly.

 

"We're on a patrol around our base right now," the Alicorn explained. "Did you find yourself here by accident?"

Sorey - Jin's Asteroid

[ oh my god is your face ok ] - [ we should have a tea party and all become friends ] - [ no seraphs active ]

 

 

Ouch, that's gotta hurt.

 

"Are you alright?" Sorey called out. Jin was, from the looks of it, obviously still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed despite getting a face full of space-dirt three seconds prior. Swimming over with a little more grace than the other young man, the Shepherd tumbled gently through the air and rolled onto the same asteroid. Finally, solid ground! If they were in for lasers again, at least this would be more of a fair fight since most everyone was new at flying. 

 

"Well, depends on your definition of fun..." Sorey followed up. That black-and pink person -- Blixer -- seemed to be having quite a good time right now already with his power. Not that the implied offer of a friendly scuffle with Jin didn't sound fun, but usually you'd make friends before beating them up, right? Unless, of course, they're too fired up to be reasoned with -- which didn't seem like the case at the moment.

 

"So he has the ability to make music out of thin air, along with the ability to weaponize his projectiles to match the rhythm. That's probably the coolest power anyone has had so far."

 

"I know, right?" Sorey answered Mikleo out loud. "Playing any music, anywhere? You won't even need a band to follow you around when you're traveling!"
