War of the Light

Blue Lantern Two

Saint Walker had spent a long time meditating on Hope, in between his various adventures. The pale skinned alien had been aware of the Hope entity, Adara, of course, having been told of it by the Guardian Ganthlet. But somehow, he felt there was something MORE to it.

Walker meditated on Adara, on the shining blue light of hope. Then he tried to reach beyond it, to sense Hope on a even higher level. It was difficult, almost impossible, but his faith was strong and finally... he broke through.


This was NOT what Walker had in mind.

The area around him resembled a park, and dozens and dozens of young women walked and chatted amongst themselves. Oddly they all appeared to be human girls, much like the Green Lantern Hal Jordan he had met.

Then the most powerful surge of Blue Hope he had felt pulsed through this realm, and a pink haired girl in a swirling gown appeared before him. She practically blazed with the energies of Hope, even more so than the Hope Entity.

"Who...," Walker was too choked up to speak, then managed, "who are you?"

"My name is Madoka Kaname, and I don't think you're supposed to be here," she noted mildly.

To be continued...?

SPOILER for Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Also a tip of the hat to ShadowCrystalMage for coming up with the idea of Madoka being hope first.
