Well, guys, here we go again! TL Chronicle was deleted, but I'm startin' the sequel and keeping stuff in novel format...save the narration at the beginning and the songs. There'll be more characters and inter-dimensional travel. Anyway, here we go into the next Author Fighters fic!
Chapter 1: Darkside in Konoha
??: What makes a person who they are? Is it their origins, how they come into this universe? Or is it something else? Something deeper? And why am I doing the intro from Hellboy? The answer is that it has a lot to do with this tale. It's about someone who not only changed his destiny and my life, but also the view of his kind...forever. I'm TLSoulDude. I'm in Konoha at the moment, helping the Author Fighters try to wipe out the remaining Darksides.
A silver hedgehog with a golden mane, cowboy boots, a gauntlet on his left arm, and a glove with red circuitry on his right hand was riding on a metal manta ray like a surf-board. The thing he was chasing--a Darkside that was causing the Hidden Leaf Village some grief since he blew up the Darkside's base. The thing he was riding--a Summon of his called Depth Charge.
"Why am I always your surf-board?!" Demanded Depth Charge.
"'Cause it's cliche." Replied TL.
The Darkside looked unusually like a dragon and had several of dragonic properties. This, TL found out the hard way. The Darkside shot a mouthful of fire that slightly burned TL's mane.
"Depth Charge!" TL shouted "Loose the Power Pizzas!"
"Stop callin' 'em that. I hate it." Depth Charge muttered.
"Just do it." TL said, flatly.
Depth Charge growled before shifting into his blue robot form with a yellow mouth part. TL's left arm glowed with a bluish aura and a hunk of rock tore out to give him an easy ride. Depth Charge blasted the Darkside with a yellow energy disk as TL flew over with his left hand glowing with red energy.
"Good night, Darkside!" TL said. A red wave appeared and the dragon's neural activities conked out, causing it to fall to the ground with a CRASH. Depth Charge grumbled before vanishing and TL lowered his rock to the ground and stopped near the Darkside. It snapped, angrilly at him "Guess I miscalculated..."
Several kunai and shuriken hit the Darkside and it roared in pain before dying and vanishing. TL grinned as he turned to a shinobi with spiky brown hair and a headband with the Konoha symbol on it. This was one of TL's best friends--Airnaruto.
"Hey, I brought him down, didn't I?" TL asked, innocently
"Yeah and destroyed half the First Hokage's face on that mountain, disturbed the peace MULTIPLE times, and you failed to ask for backup!" Airnaruto shouted, obviously having not the best day.
"I didn't need backup. I had Depth Charge." TL pointed out.
"And you know that he hates being summoned to begin with!" Airnaruto objected.
TL shrugged before replying. "Well, Spider-man couldn't take it out like that, Knuckles can't punch while gliding, and Draco enjoys it even less, so Depth Charge was the logical choice."
"What about Cloud?" Airnaruto asked, calming down.
"Good question..." TL said, trailing off.
TL looked at the wreckage in Konoha.
"Will I be covering this?" Asked the hedgehog.
"Naturally." Replied Airnaruto, walking off.
TL sighed before sweeping the rubble away with his gauntlet hand's levitation powers. He then looked up at the First Hokage's face and levitated the rubble that used to be half of it and reassembled it. He slammed his hand down.
"Fictor-Style! SUMMONING JUTSU!" He shouted.
A man with a red and blue suit with webbing on it appeared. He was Spider-man, one of TL's summons.
"Need to get somewhere, TL?" Asked the spider superhero.
"Just up to that mountain." Replied TL, pointing to the mountain.
"How about we test this idea I had?" Spider-man asked.
Later, TL was in a web slingshot.
"Uh...Spidey? Are you entirely sure this is SAAAAAAAFE?!" As TL ended his sentence, Spider-man let go of the slingshot, sending him flying to the mountain. Spider-man then vanished.
TL crashed into the mountain and knocked off the half he put back into place. He swept his hand and they reassembled themself again. He then caused red lightning to shoot from his hand and melt parts of the stone back into place, welding themselves together. TL sighed before flopping on his back. A green raptor then glided over before landing and staring down at the hedgehog. The raptor was TL's older brother, Dimensiondude.
"What now, bro?" TL asked, covering the sun from his eyes in a laid-back manner.
"You're sleeping on the job when we need to be checking the OTHER dimensions?" Dimensiondude asked.
TLSoulDude kicked himself up with a flat expression on his face.
"Why didn't I just let myself die in that explosion?" Asked TL, rhetorically (A/N: If you haven't read the TL Chronicle before it was removed, I destroyed Drake's base by removing my gloves and having my power explode).
TL then kicked himself up and began walking through Konoha, just to be doing something. TL then glaced over to see the leader of the Author Fighters--DarkMagicianmon.
"Hey, Boss Wiz." TL greeted, cheerfully.
"TL, I've told you not to keep calling me that." DM replied, not wanting a nickname that sounded like that he was a superior.
"And Lunatic thinks he can surpass Airnaruto in jutsus," replied TL "But it's not gonna happen. (A/N: Lunatic's jutsus are mediocre at best and can't use good ones unless he's in his Ultima form.)"
"Soul, we need to talk." DM said, calmly "You've been barging into stuff without thinking, you've hardly been listening to me, your older brother, Dimensiondude, or hardly ANYONE for that matter. What's going on?"
"I dunno." TL said "Maybe I'm just going through a phase, but hey I hardly care at all. Y'know what?...I feel like singing!"
TLSoulDude then broke into song--Time After Time by Quicktime.
TLSoulDude: Lying in my bed, I hear the clock tick and think of you. Caught up in circles. Confusion is nothing new. You say go slow, I fall behind. The second hand unwinds. If you're lost, you can look and you will find me time after time. If you fall, I will catch you. I'll be waiting time after time. Time after time. Time after time. Sometimes, you picture me. I'm walking too far ahead. You're calling to me, I can't hear just what you've said. You say go slow, I fall behind. The second hand unwinds. If you're lost, you can look and you will find me time after time. If you fall, I will catch you. I'll be waiting time after time. After my picture fades and darkness has turned to grey, watching through windows, you're wondering if I'm okay. And you say go slow, I fall behind. The drum beats out of time. If you're lost, you can look and you will find me time after time. If you fall, I will catch you. I'll be waiting time after time. If you're lost, you can look and you will find me. Time after time, if you fall, I will catch you. I'll always be waiting time after time. Time after time.
TLSoulDude then hopped away through Konoha. DM sighed. It's times like THESE that he could hardly understand that hedgehog. Half the time, he's sensible and willing to do the right thing, but half the time, he's just some goofy hedgehog who wants to give people fun by giving them a hard time.
"When I found you in the wreckage, you were weak!" Shouted a voice in darkness "But now, the power of darkness is strong in you..."
Drake was standing next to a black hedgehog that looked like TL, except for the silver mane, metal gauntlet on his left arm, regular glove on his right, and pale pink cowboy boots. This was TL's Anti-Author named Anti-TLSoulDude. The two were in their next base on Omega Mountain, where the surviving Darksides took refuge.
"Thank you, master. What do I do now?" Asked Anti-TL.
"Go out and build me an army worthy of the Darksides!" Commanded Drake.
"Who shall I recruit first?" Asked Anti-TL.
"Check through the cameras and choose your first target, I'm not too picky on who, as long as they're strong enough to hold their own, but weak enough to take orders from me." Replied Drake.
Anti-TL walked away. Originally, he was homicidal and a blood-thirsty monster, but now, he was different. He was now patient, an excellent tactician, and reasonable, but still couldn't help himself if he wanted to kill something. He grabbed his cameras, which were in different worlds from where Drake observed. He said he wanted to be...unique, so he patrolled the new worlds for possible Darksides that Drake thought weren't necessary...except Konoha. There, he found several potentials. He then picked out three that he knew would have potential--one was a snake, the other was a superhuman with spiky black hair, and the last one was a small thing with one eye.
"Master Darkstar, I'm going to three worlds." Anti-TL said into a com-link between him and Darkstar. "I've got three targets and I'm sure that they'll do good."
So, TL's gone a bit rebellious and Anti-TL survived with his master and has three worlds to go to. Who are his targets? Will he successfully recruit them? Will the Author Fighters stop him? Find out in the next chapter of Anti-TL's Wrath!
