All is silent except for a low mechanical rumbling.
The Energy Controller?
Familiar red orbs lining the walls seem to stare at Samus as she wakes up.
U-Mos gazes out of the temple and across the planet. It's his job to protect dormant Luminoth until the Ing are defeated. The spiritual guardian, who is very tall, carries an aurora of comfort around him all the time. Sensing that the hero has regained consciousness, he does not turn to look at her and instead uses telepathy.
A mixture of emotions and words.
He's not mad at her for the incident, for almost dying, for making him leave the Great Temple vulnerable while he saved her. U-Mos understands how fierce the Ing are from his own battles.
He doesn't think less of my ability now, but sees my near-death as just one unlucky event...
"That is right," spoke U-Mos, "I will keep fighting, and you will keep fighting. Nothing has changed. Now please go."
Samus dashes out of the temple as fast as possible.
Over the course of the next month, Samus was her usual self. With minimal fear and with perfect aim, she outright destroyed her opponents, obliterating them before they could do much of anything. Ings couldn't usually get close before their vision was blinded with light and their body vaporized. Space Pirate guards would be on their usual shift when with no warning the Hunter would burst into sight, instantly killing the first guard she saw, its alien body spewing everywhere. Other guards would take cover, but this was only delaying the inevitable.
Dark Samus, a reincarnation of Metroid Prime, helped kill off the Space Pirates until they were no longer a threat on Aether. Occasionally Samus would encounter her dark counterpart; they would each fire a few shots before backing out, both feeling unready to take the other one on.
Fortresses were invaded, energy was stolen, the Ing's best generals were fought and conquered, but often not before nearly ending Samus.
All across the planet, the Luminoth fought the Ing. There were some major battles, but it was mostly either guerrilla warfare or one side defending from another's invasions. The Ing dominated. All the Luminoth could do was slow down their extermination enough to buy Samus time.
The mission got more complicated as Aether became harder and harder to figure out. After Samus absorbed the last of Dark Aether's energy, her phazonic counterpart was ready for a fight to the death. This duel would decide the war, and Samus went down as the most important hero in Luminoth hisory as she landed the final blow, vaporizing Dark Samus like all the Ing before.
Thanks a ton for reading. In case you didn't realize this, the second part of the chapter is basically a summary of Metroid Prime 2's events. However the events are greatly altered to make it seem less like a video game and more realistic. I will continue to do this throughout future chapters.
You're probably thinking that this story is in the wrong section, but this will turn into an F-Zero crossover. I think I can make it work.
The first two chapters aren't super descriptive, but that's cause they're background chapters. Chapter 3 will start up some real stuff.
