Level 62 : High Grandmaster Mlem Mlem Bat
Story (written by the swaggy pentakill)
I laid my eyes upon the gazing moonlight that set upon the vast lands. The violent winds slashed against my bare wings, roaring its might throughout the night. As all grew silent, a tunnel of clouds seeming called down a boasting strike of lightning. It unleashed a gloria that held me tightly against the rocky cliff. A immense aura filled the holy lands, a man who I once believed to be a craven raised from his knees. A eternal power raged through his broken sword, but a woe kept its core together. He ran his hand through his golden silk that laid upon his head as it brushed against the blaze that surrounded him. A soul-crushing bound came with the opening of his eyes. I felt weakened, disappointed. Better yet, destroyed.

“My dear, how I missed you for so long.” his voice echoed through the valley. He tilted his head towards the dark sky. With a roar his skin began to melt off, leaving a metal coating. His eyes were brighter, and had a blood lust I couldn’t bare. When they met mine, I couldn’t help to almost give up. He pointed his fingers at me, which was now the end of his sword. His sword molded with his skin- or metal itself.

“And this world.”

His figure seemingly disappeared in a moment. Noticing a small light avert from my side, I quickly gripped the hilt of my sword and collided its end with the man’s glowing blade. A golden flare continuously sparked from the metal. Its size was massive for his body, I wondered how he could move so fast. He must have been distorting the air to confuse me. There was no way he could move that swiftly.

His body suddenly exploded into the heavens. A feeling that I miss, as one of my wings has been severed. I raised my arms up in a defensive position preparing the air strike. Instead, a slight breeze rained down. Alleviating my stance only for a moment, a gust of incredibly powerful wind struck down at me. Smoke piled into the air, as I laid there with no fight left in me.  I decided to use my last resort. Concentrating my energy within, I simply spoke one word, “Valkyrie’s Might!”

Suddenly, a burst of energy ripped through my skin. Flames burst from my flesh as wings molded from the flames on my back. Talons morphed from the fire were beginning to ignite. I slowly bent down and placed my palm against the dirt. As I brought my hand up, I gripped against a blade that almost clenched onto me. The blade’s edge suddenly broke into a massive burst of flame. The sensation of flying awoken in me. My wings tighten together as I bent down. An enormous crack was left in the floor as my wings began to spread. I was flying, I was flying once again.

           “Unbelievable power! It’s simply magnificent beautiful.” The man roared having a metallic pitch thriving through its body. Without hesitation, it dived from the deep sky as its body was almost one with the air. I brought out my blade when I felt a sudden pulse of energy rush to the blade. Flames swirled around its black obsidian surface as my hair grew out longer. My outfit completely changed, as my eyes burned a bright crimson.


“No matter, no flame can cut through my metal.” He screeched through the gush of the air. I pulled my sword to my side, leaving the flat end facing him. As his metal body collided with the side of my blade, I slowly began to angle it upwards. I had only left a scratch his sides flew into the clouds. With a twist, my blade swung as a slash of blaze brushed against his body.


“Is that all you’ve got?” he laughed. I snapped my finger and suddenly appeared behind him. Raising my blade, I brought it down with enough force to create a tornado. I wasn’t finished. I roared a battle cry, rushing towards his back holding the hilt of my blade upward the sun My blade ripped into his back first, as I held the hilt with two hands. He flew hundreds of yards towards the ground, but was able to maintain his flight. Suddenly, another light flickered. He appeared directly below me. The beast slashed its enormous blade at my leg. I was barely able to dodge the attack, but with his left hand it tightly gripped my ankles.Raising its own body it turned and slammed me closer to the ground.

The sound resonated in the thick air. My body mass in nearly an instance transformed into simple atoms. A massive burst of energy pulsed from the origin of my finger and directed towards a certain direction. The difficult part was leading the sound there. I managed to teleport my body beside him, barely avoiding being crushed.  The General’s body decimated into the ground below him. With one more, I appeared right above him, placing my palms together.

The man’s eyes widened. I released my hands to have a burning blaze wrap around my arm. I clenched my fist together and pulled my arms behind my head. With a deep breath, I threw my balled hands into the top of his head. His whole body vibrated and at lightning speed rushed to space  with immense force. The clouds collapsed at the pressure, creating a ripple throughout the heavens.

His body floated in the air for a moment, before quickly falling to the earth once again. The impact echoed throughout the skies, but with a smile, I sat criss-crossed on a cloud. 

“This was always my domain.” I convinced myself. As a slight breeze washed against my cheeks, it carried a voice.

"I am grateful. Most people live joyfully and die painfully, but for me, I had lived painfully and will die joyfully."
