the coucil of ten by dr3arms
the council of of ten sat down for the first time in several hundred years, each elder was responsible for one aspect of reality. each one knowing of the golden strands threat. "ah... asteroth, i see that three of your assistants are not present during.... no four now... i wonder what could have happened to them?" the grand overseer said without hesitation. "it is the golden strands my lord, theyve over taken my realm... i fear that not even the vigilante group who is currently fighting the threat of the golden strands will be enough to statiate the situation." asterroth said, his mind a buzz with the problems of his realm. "well, what do you suppose we can do? it seems that the pentulma have already taken steps towards giving them the help they required, although with their track record as of late... it would be in our best interest, and the interest of all those who have... survived the catastrophic events thus far, to seek our advice. talmos, do you have a bearing on where they are at the moment?"
telmos, a floating brain like thing with wires and snowglobed glued onto his front for no other reason then for decorative purposes hummed silently for a few minutes before speaking. "no. i do not." "you arent very helpful are you?" the brain floated away before jerkily coming back, thick black string penetrating out of one of his snowglobes. a new voice emerged from the flailing threads. "i do beleive we are in more trouble then i thought my brothers. my name is barney fife, and i am the puppet king."
morgan and caasi had been waiting at the grey hole for several days when the creatures and resaec popped out of the portal of screaming shadows. "NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!" resaec said furiously to morgans amusement. "ITS CALLED THE PORTAL OF SCREAMING SHADOWS FOR A REASON JIM! YOU ARENT SUPPOSED TO COMFORT THEM!" now it was caasis turn to laugh. but her thoughts turned to another surprising thing. "wheres the inner beast?" she said simply. resaec huffed away at the cold air, turning his right hand over to notice that he had been infected by a spiderweb like patter of golden strands. 'how could this have happened? i need to tell mrogan and the others quickly if i am to... no... i wont burden this news to them as well.' he thought to himself sadly. the worried look on his face didnt get past caasi though. "resaec? whats wrong?" the overlord of the nightmare dimension simply turned his banck to her, hiding his hand as he did so.
"nothing is wrong iwth me that i cannot fix myself." morgan took no notice of this and simply looked towards the grey and psoke. "ok, were all here methusela... except for thei nner beast, but im sure shell outlast the golden strands. what the-" he was interrupted when a puppet on thick back threads slowly grew from the ground, it was in the image of thei nner beast. it shivvered every once in while, making a clattering noise as it did so. "dont worry, she is with the puppet king. i must go, my king is conversing with the council of ten. they will know what to do." the puppet then exploded, sending peices flying outwards, some landing in the grey hole itself. "ok... that was... NEVER MIND! every one here that out to be here?" there was a general agreement amongst everyone. "hold on... that puppet just now?" caasi said concerned about the inner beasts where abouts, "what did it say about the inner beast?"
morgan gave her a weary look, his eyes told her all she needed to know. 'it said shes with the puppet king, not to worry, and that something about the council of ten.' caasi shrugged. "can we finally cross into the damned grey hole already? me and her have been waiting for what seems like forever now, and franly, even though it was fun, i really dont want to be eaten by the golden strands!" the creatures and resaec nodded slowly on that point. "ok, well cross over... hoefully we dont regret this." caasi was powerless to change their minds. she wanted to wait for the inner beast, but knew the others woldnt wait forever. "alright... i guess ill come along too." "good, because i owuldvej ust picked you up and carried you through the grey hole myself anyways." morgan said with out much thought.
as they got nearer to the grey hole, they realized that it was a lot bigger then they originaly thought. "WHAT THEH ELL IS IT WITH EVERYTHING BEING SO **** BIG!?" morgan shouted in aggrivation. "dunno, but were here at any rate." jim said non chalantly. caasi and resaec had been talking amongst themselves, and general became better aquianted with each other. resaec learned of all the adventures that she and morgan had been through, and caasi just learned the only thing about his castle, was that it was devoured by the golden strands. "yes.. that is theo nly thing new that has happened, that and this." he snapped his fingers, and two clones popped into existence, walking on either side of jim. "you just had to summon those things near me didnt you?" the creature said, slightly annoyed.
