our story started in the depths of the universe, where fairytales were born from starstuff and dark matter -- spirits of light and darkness, humans and monsters, fantastical creatures and godlike entities. after the nightmare king destroyed the galaxial golden age, the haven many of them sought was the planet earth. in a postmodern 2023 world, after centuries of dormancy, the beings of folklore and myth have arisen to take two sides, fighting for stark control over the good and bad in the world while the situation spirals ever more out of hand. mortality and sentience are becoming stagnant, redundant, ever more indistinguishable from belief and imagination; it is up to the immortals to inject their individual concepts back into the world, tap into the hearts of children and adults and each other alike, and finally merge the worlds of mortal and magic into one cohesive whole.

What a better way to start off this new found life of his than to go find a decent sized bar and proceed to get drunk enough to the point he passed out. It sounded like one hell good of an idea to the pirate. An celebration was in order so why not go all out and damn the consequences. He had nothing to lost beside the money in his pocket. Now to actually find that bar. The town he so happened to find himself in did not have much to offer in terms of what Asheton really wanted. There were some smaller joints he passed while in his search but not the right one he was looking. Well. Beggars cannot be choosers. It would better to settle. As long as it had the alcohol he wanted all would be fine.

With that decided, the man made his way over to one bar in particular. The building on the edge of town seemed like a good place to check out before making his final decision. The time it took him to get there had been short. A couple of minutes of walking until Asheton found himself standing right in front of the door. Without wasting any more of his time, he stepped inside. The place seemed a bit too crowded for his taste though he chose to simply put up with it. As long as the alcohol was good that is that truly mattered. He inched his over of to the front of the bar and seated himself in one of the many stools that were away from the crowd of people. Once he got himself all situated, the man ordered a glass of rum and ice.

Three drinks were all what the pirate could get in peace. His mind at the time had drift onto other thoughts. What snapped him away from those musing was a strange unfamiliar sound of someone talking to him. He didn't really catch what was said though he did not care to know either way. That was the case until the voice became much more louder than moments before. It was a man yelling about something about getting out of his chair. Asheton paid no mind rather he fixed his attention on ordering another drink. He didn’t get that drink of his. Nope. Instead he found that clearly loud, angry drunken man shove the pirate off the stool. Being caught off guard by the sudden force, Asheton fell to the bar floor quite roughly. It didn’t hurt. But it sure as hell waken his temper.

He was pissed to say the least and it showed heavily across his features. Getting back up to his full height, he went over to the one who dared pushed him and without a word, flatly punched the drunken man across the face. It didn’t end there. His punches kept on coming. With one final punch, Asheton then decided to throw the other man against the well, grab him by the throat, cutting off his supply of air. He simply watched the other struggle to worm his way to freedom.

It wasn't unusual for Nĩu Lang to wander off from Asheton. The other male slept far more than the average human being, something that left the celestial unsure as to whether it had to do with a medical problem, slothfulness, or being a former human. No matter the reason, the Aquarian was hardly going to keep all of his time with his tĩzh when the man was sleeping. After all, he had taken to traveling with the man to learn and it seemed best to keep company with the man when that was actually going to happen. As such, he'd left while the man was sleeping, an action which would not go unquestioned even if Asheton woke up. He had not planned to go far, just wanting to wander a bit and perhaps indulge his more equestrian side. He hadn't shifted in a while and it likely wouldn't be good to ignore his abilities.

He had not expected to come back to a missing tĩzh. A frown crossed his face. Not thinking too much upon the matter, he chose to wait for a few moments. After as seconds turned into minutes, he decided that it would probably be best to look for the other immortal. After all, he would prefer not to discover that something bad had happened to the man because he had chosen to sit and wait for him to return.

It was decidedly too easy to find him.

Walking deeper into town, a storm of commotion caught his attention. He found himself fairly conflicted. He had never been the sort to involved himself in trouble. However, he technically didn't know what was going on. For all he knew it was actually something important and not the sort of thing he should ignore. After a moment of consideration, he decided that it would not hurt to just see what was going on. Peaking into the bar, he was immediately glad he had as he was met with the sight of Asheton, of all people, holding someone by the throat. It was the sort of thing he would expect to see in a dream, seeing as the man had views far more similar to his own and normally preferred to avoid violence.

Barely thinking about the matter, he found himself storming into the matter. Making to grasp the other male by the wrist, he allowed heat to rush into his hand so that his grip would be uncomfortable enough to get the man to let go. "What the fuck do you think you are doing?" he hissed, something in his mind hissing that something entirely was off about this situation already.

@MOMO

At the beginning the idea to go as far as to ending the life of the poor drunken bastard was never his intention. Asheton merely wanted to get pay back for what the man dared to do. Yet, as the moments passed, the pirate found that the idea was appealing. Why not do so? The act is one he could easily do without so much of a second thought. It would not only let his presences be known within the bar but show just what he was capable of and how far he was willing to go. Gain that fear of the townspeople. All it would take is a little stronger pressure of the man’s neck and the rest would be over before anyone knew it. The task would be simple enough. No one was stopping him, so why not. He could start this new life of his by ending another’s.

The man’s pointless struggling was getting very annoying to say the least. It was starting to become very difficult to keep him from worming his way to the freedom he wanted. Asheton let him have that false hope for another moment before crushing it all together by slamming the man into the wall, pinning him down with no way of escaping. He was taking this a bit too far. He understood that yet at the same time he did not care. It was too much fun. Fun that he didn’t have in such a long time. Sadly for him, his fun seemed to not to last for much longer.

All his attention had been focused on his victim alone. The crowded bar is not something he paid any mind to. That changed in a matter of seconds once he felt the touch of another and the pain that followed after. In that same instant, Asheton pulled away, releasing the drunken man, letting him crash onto the bar floor. He moved his gaze away from the one he was so close to killing onto Nĩu Lang in a matter of seconds. “What the hell?!” He snapped, his purple gaze glaring down at the shorter immortal. What was he doing? That should have been clear by what his actions were. “What does it look like I’m doing?!”

He did not wait for a reply back from the other. It didn’t matter what was said. He didn’t really care to hear the answer. He already had a good guessed what it was. There would be no point in waiting. “This has nothing to so with you. Stay out of it unless you want to get hurt.” He warned. “As for this guy, he pretty much has a death wish that I am more than happy to fulfill for him.” He sent a nice hard kick to the drunk’s stomach, knocking the wind out of him.

In all honesty, it only took Asheton opening his mouth, if even that, for Nĩu Lang to realize that something disastrous had happened while he was away. He might have blamed a curse or consumption of something magical except that the other male smelled almost exactly the same. The differences were small and easily blamable on the fact that they were within a bar. For all intents and purposes, he was speaking to the same person. The only problem was that he clearly was not. The Aquarian liked to think that he knew the other immortal about as well as Asheton likely knew him. They both clearly didn't share everything, but a person didn't have to share their life story to get an understanding of a person's general personality. Asheton occasionally got irritated, but he was not a violet individual. Moreover, Nĩu Lang would describe the fights the two had as relatively mild. The worst the two had had was likely in Siberia, which had been understandable. He had gone on a walk and had returned much later than he had said. Moreover, he had returned injured. Considering how miserable Siberia was, a fight had been inevitable. This, on the other hand, was not normal.

"Committing murder," he said flatly. After all, that had clearly been what the other male was doing. His gaze flickered to the mortal, a grimace crossing his face. He was clearly drunk and Nĩu Lang would not be surprised if the man was injured considering the crash into the floor. At best, he was a bit dazed. His dark gaze turned to the other immortal. "To a drunk." There was clear judgment there. Nĩu Lang could understand some things, such as self defense or killing due to being part of war. Killing a drunk was the sort of action he would label as pathetic. Drunks were lacking in inhibitions and killing one was akin to beating up the weakest person in the group because you knew you were weak.

Anger stirred in the celestial. He didn't know what was going on, but he imagined that to some extent he didn't need to know. Whoever the fuck this was was clearly not Asheton. Something had clearly happened to the other man, this man was clearly involved, and he was also a violent menace. That was more than enough of a reason to get involved. "I'm afraid you've made it my business," he said, "Seeing as you clearly did something to Asheton. So, I advise you either explain or I'll pull the words from your mouth."

@MOMO

It was not an idea that he loved. In fact, the pirate hated it more than anything yet given these new circumstances he had no other choice. Putting off ending the useless drunk’s life would likely work in his favor as much as Asheton hated the idea he would rather not cause himself more trouble. He was no idiot. There was a time and place for everything. Now obviously was not the time. He had a feeling murdering the drunk would only result in putting himself in something he likely could not get out of. He hated the idea as he wanted to much an example out of the bastard though he had a feeling that doing so would only managed to get this new comer more pissed. He had a pretty good feeling that would not be a wise decision.

Rather than voicing this, Asheton played off as not really caring. It was the truth to some degree. The very idea of killing someone is not one that bothered him. Why should it? Being a pirate and all, it was part of his job. He would have gotten very far if he didn’t have the stomach to kill. He would never go as far as to say he enjoyed it. “You say that like it’s a bad thing.” He commented back flatly. “One less drunk in the world. That sounds like a good thing to me.” This fight is not one he started. He had only wanted to drink his rum in peace before he rudely got interrupted. If it was anyone’s fault here, it was the drunks. Not his. It was never a smart thing to piss off someone who was clearly stronger than yourself.

Things only seemed to be getting worse as time passed. The pirate had a pretty good guess that whoever this guy was, he certainly knew the version of him from this world. That was bad. As far as he was aware the other him had isolated himself for the past three hundred years. When did that change? He thought he could easily get this new life and not have to worry about anything. Apparently, he was wrong to assume that there would be no problems along the way. There was a way out of this. He needed to come up with it and fast before it was too late.

Not once did his cold glare leave Nĩu Lang. Things were starting turn in ways he never imagined would happen. Who knows? This might be more fun than beating on some drunk. “I’m afraid I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m Asheton.” He started, a light smirk appearing on his face. Getting him to talk won’t be easy. He had been through a lot when it came to such things. It was part of the life of being a pirate. “There’s nothing that needs to be explained. Maybe I just want to go back to the way I was before. Back to being a pirate that people feared. What’s so wrong with that?” He could play this out. The other him of this world was just as cruel and ruthless as he was back in the day. Using that to his advantage might work.

Nĩu Lang found himself reminded of distinctly bad things at the other male's words. They were taunting, hypocritical words that struck a bit too close to home. He could easily associate them to his brother. The deceased Aquarian had always held a habit of acting righteous while his actions spoke differently. the target of such behavior had usually been Nĩu Lang himself who he had seemed to hold a strong dislike for that had led to his actions delving into the abusive, making him all the happier to be away from his family when he could.

"Murder is an inherently wrong thing," he bit out, "Particularly when your target is defenseless." There was an unspoken claim of which you believe. He didn't verbalize it, but there was a glimmer to his eyes that spoke of a suspicion that had already delved into judgment. He didn't know every belief that lurked in the former pirate's heart, but he could recall his first meeting with Asheton well enough. The man preferred to avoid violence, not go around playing God.

On some level, it wouldn't be surprising that the doppelganger did not know of Nĩu Lang. Asheton had only begun to travel with the celestial sometime in the last several months. Moreover, the two were nomadic and Nĩu Lang was not the sort to stay attached b the hip. It would have been easy to go without knowledge that Asheton had allowed his life to change dramatically in the name of teaching another.

He let out a laugh. It lit up his face and brought out the age that could normally be hidden through impassiveness. "Oh look, I leave you alone and you suddenly gain a sense of humour," he drawled, "Ignoring the fact that you tend to prefer to killing, becoming a pirate would require you stop sleeping your life away."

Unfortunately for the other, Nĩu Lang wasn't in the mood to play chicken. He'd given a warning. If the other wasn't going to hand over information then he'd give him incentive. Manipulating the light energy in the room, he made to have it claw up the other male to keep him in place. Only quick action would have him avoid it.

He rolled his eyes. "Even if your name is Asheton, you definitely aren't my teacher."

@MOMO

Within moments everything began to fall apart before he got so much as a chance to do anything with this new life he wanted to achieve with coming to a better world than his own. Asheton hadn’t realized what exactly his counterpart has been doing these past few months. Until moments ago, he didn’t care to know either. The pirate thought that it wouldn’t matter. He didn't think that the other him would willingly give up that life isolation he held for so long that easily. To his understanding, the other him didn’t want to make any more connects. He didn’t want to get attach to others. The questions was what changed that and why now of all times? The pirate thought he could have gotten this new life without having to deal with anyone realizing that the Asheton of this world had been replaced.

It was becoming very clear just how much he royally screwed himself over with his one. Whoever this guy was, he clearly knew his counterpart well enough to know there was something wrong. That cause a huge problem that cannot be avoided anymore. He could keep up this little act of his for a little while longer until he knew fully what he was up against. After that… Well hopefully he could come up with some way to save himself. He would rather stay in this world. He liked it here. “Defenseless? He attacked me first.” He argued. “It was self-defense.” Granted, he took things a bit too far though none of this would have happened if that drunk kept his hands to himself rather than picking a fight with someone twice his size.

Asheton could see that things were starting to head south. He was not fooling anyone with this act of his. It would be pointless to keep up it, yet he knew now would not be the time. He still needed to play this out for little longer. He needed to know what and who he was up against here. Whether or not he had a fighting chance. A frown quickly replaced his earlier smirk within second of hearing the laughter that came his way. He didn’t like the sounds it. Nor did he like the words that followed after. This was not good. There would be not good outcome if he kept up this stupid act of his. The only thing that would come of it is more trouble than what he wanted.

He stayed quiet, trying to roll around some ideas of how to handle this without putting himself into a worse situation. Nothing came to mind. Talking was not going to work. Not this time. With him being too occupied with trying to figure what he should and should be doing, he did not notice the trap that had been set by Nĩu Lang.

After another moment or two, he sighed. “You really don’t know much about him, do you? Though I imagine, he has his reasons for keeping quiet. Sleeping is so much easier than actually dealing with what kind of person he truly is.” He commented with a light shrug of his shoulders. “You’re right. I’m not him…” He paused as an idea managed to pop inside his head. It, of course, was a stupid one to egg the other man on though he couldn’t help himself. It would be too much fun to pass up. “As for what happened to real one. He’s dead. I killed him myself. Now what? What are you going to do? Kill me? Because you honestly have no way of knowing what I’m saying is the truth or not. He did put up a good fight. Not just good enough.”

The doppelganger was poking at a growing fire. While a generally calm individual, Nĩu Lang was the sort of person who burned bright once angered, usually becoming careless and reckless in his ire. At the moment, he was past the point of frustration and having dipped into anger. He was attempting to be reasonable; however, the look-alike before him was clearly attempting to test what little patience he had by throwing oil on the fire, not realizing that he would likely become burned if he rid the celestial of what control he was exerting at the moment.

His expression became visibly tired. "Defending yourself against the drunk who deserves to die?" he said skeptically. He couldn't prove that the other male was lying about being attacked first. However, it was fairly obvious that he was lying about everything else. After all, everything he was saying was just a contradiction. "If you are going to lie to me, at least do some research first. This is almost sad." Seriously, going from telling him how he was doing a good deed by making sure there was one less drunk in the world to playing the innocent card by saying it was self-defense? Right.

His words managed to bring about a certain amount of quiet from the Asheton look-alike. As a result, he went unaware of the light creeping up his person in an attempt to keep him there. Unfortunately, there appeared to be no need for the doppelganger to run as his words were enough for Nĩu Lang to lose his concentration, light energy scattering away. In its place a fiery rage settled, rational thought almost nonexistent.

It wasn't the claim that he didn't know much about Asheton. Nĩu Lang knew he didn't know much about the other immortal outside of what he showed. In fact, it was far more likely that Asheton knew more about him than the other way around. After all, he had a bad tendency to over share. It was only the smaller things, the core parts of his person, that he had never spoken about, much as the younger immortal seemed to never speak about his past. He didn't care. Nĩu Lang was friends...acquaintances, perhaps was the better term, with many people who preferred to keep the past in the past. In fact, he probably could understand it best as a celestial.

If there was a part of Asheton that went unseen, he imagined he was not one to judge. It wasn't like everything Nĩu Lang portrayed was honest.

No, what angered him was the latter bit. It was clear the male was attempting to bait him; however, he had not been in a particularly logical place to begin with. There was little warning to his actions, only fire dancing along the tips of his fingers before he aimed to a gust of fire at the brunette.

@MOMO

Things were likely only to get worse for him as time progressed. Asheton put himself into something that he doubted he could get out of so easily. He should have been careful, investigated his counterpart’s life before actually setting his plan into motion. The pirate never thought he would have any trouble starting a new life in a world far better than his own. He didn’t want to go back to that hell. No, he refused to go back without a fight. He could pull things in his favor somehow, someway. It would take time of course though with the way things were looking he may not have it. His words were causing too much trouble than what it was worth.

While he enjoyed poking fun at the other male, it was not the wisest decision on Asheton’s part. Every man had a breaking point until their anger got the better of them. With enough poking, all of it would come crashing down onto the one dumb enough to piss them off to begin with. It always ended in someone dying or unable to fight. He honestly did not want to be at the receiving end of either of those. He went through a lot to get to this world and he would rather stay in it for a more than a couple hours. He wanted to stay here for the rest of his life though all things considered he doubted Nĩu Lang would give him much of a choice. “That is correct. He started a fight he couldn’t end.” He explained further. “If he kept his hands to himself, then I wouldn’t have done what I did to him”

He admitted to himself at the very least that he did take things too far. His didn’t bother holding back since at the time he had let his anger get the better of him. “Yes. I can see that now.” He sighed. The only regret he felted was that his actions gave away that he was not the original. That fight caused him to act out blindly without considering the consequences of it.

His making of a plan came to a stop before Asheton got the chance to even make one. His words cause a reaction out of Nĩu Lang that he did not expect to happen. What he expected was a punch to the face or something similar to it. Not a sudden blast of fire coming his way. There was no time for him to move his body fast enough out of the way. He took the hit square in the chest. He stumbled back a step or two before he tripped over the drunk he had previously had beaten up. Naturally, he lost his footing and fell to the ground, landing quite roughly on his back. He didn’t move from the that spot just yet. He was too stunned.

The doppelganger was playing fire and it was inevitable that he was going to get burned. Nĩu Lang certainly had a fair amount of patience, but it was not nearly as untouchable as it tended to appear. There was a temper to the celestial, one which lurked beneath the surface. He did not enjoy being played with nor did he enjoy the notion of those he cared about being harmed. The latter was one of the few aspects in his life that had seemed to always draw him into fights. His family had never understood his belief that something like love should matter and that their younger son was willing to protect those he loved at all costs, even if it meant dragging himself into trouble. Earth had hardly hidden him from the danger of the belief. He could remember as though it were yesterday how he had gotten into an argument with the White Tiger about how family matter, how it was worth waging wars over.

Asheton wasn't family. There was no blood, no proper bonds, or even enough knowledge about the man to say he knew about him. However, he did care for the man on some level. The two had spent enough time together that many squabbles had happened and banter traded in the time they had traveled. There had been enough time to be spent together for him to care for the man who had become his teacher and he wasn't about to let some hot-headed idiot wander about, particularly when he had clearly done something to him, whether it was murder or not.

Surprisingly, the doppelganger took the hit head on, barely even making an attempt to move. He stumbled back before tripping over the very drunk he'd beaten up and landed on the ground. Nĩu Lang stalked forward, hardly paying attention to the attention he was gathering. He took in the stunned look on the other male. "You're a sturdy bastard, aren't you?" Of course, he hadn't used all of his power, not even close considering it had only been a small gust. However, it also seemed to have not done much damage. Perhaps that was a sign this bastard was an immortal as well. At least, for the other male's sake he hoped so.
