[ /slowly slides into -- ]

[The last thing he could remember was falling, a violent descent. He expected to burn, his body searing in the planet's atmosphere, for even through his status as the Ultimate Lifeform, he was sure that the odds of survival were stacked against him.

He'd shut his eyes, waiting for pain and what could have easily been the end...

... but instead, he found himself landing far too gently on a smooth platform, something entirely nonsensical for the drop he'd made.

He slowly peered weary red eyes open, his once shining, nearly white (with a tinge of gold) fur now back to its blackened state. Upon getting to his knees and looking down on himself...

Apart from the wounds inflicted by the Biolizard and his journey's wear and tear, he was basically untouched. Most importantly so, he was alive and well, and everything seemed...

...

Wait, no.

Where even is he, anyway?
]

What is the meaning of this? [He harshly whispered to himself, obviously to nothing or no one in particular.

He wasn't out of the woods yet.

[[ ooc :// AHHH HI ♥ Kind of... been lurking this little place and thought you guys could use some more activity, so here, have a just-post-SA2!game-canon!Shadow just plopping right in here. uwu!! ]]

Hmph. It looks like this place isn't done toying with me yet.

[ Shadow frowned somewhat, arms folded as he approached his doppelganger, tilting his head somewhat. Questions filled his mind, more specifically of when this double was from. His past? His future? ]
no1canbreakyou: (30 Tell me the truth)

awww thank you!

[personal profile] no1canbreakyou 2012-05-21 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
If this is a joke, then it's hardly funny.

[ The black hedgehog lifts his nose somewhat at his counterpart. This place enjoyed toying with him, and he was growing tired of it. The idea of there being more than one of him wasn't good in the sense that there could only be one Ultimate Life form.

Though, the fact there are more of him from the future meant that... Something went wrong during his own plan. That everything he was working towards had failed.

He was conflicted deep inside, but he wouldn't let that show for now. ]


This place, this Nexus enjoys toying with its inhabitants. You'll find that within this world, there are multiple areas brought through time and space, both familiar and not. And along with places, it brings people... Duplicates of the same person as many times as it sees fit. From the past, present and future... Even alternate realities.
no1canbreakyou: (05Headstraightforyourgoal by any means)

I like your Shadow so far.

[personal profile] no1canbreakyou 2012-05-22 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
And what makes you so sure of that?

[ He wouldn't give himself an inch. Shadow already found himself conflicted by the idea that he teamed up with Sonic and saved the planet, considering his own desire to destroy it. He'd learned things, even met Maria...

Knowing his future was by no means useful to him. It was a large drawback. ]


Why am I your past? Where is your proof?
no1canbreakyou: (16 Now Wake Up)

[ Of course, Shadow knew that one way or another, he couldn't survive the impact to Earth. Either with the entire Space Colony smashing into it, or... But despite that, he grins. ]

Hmph; it's your logic that's flawed. Because in this place, I've met another of myself that is also from my future. One that survived the fall.

While it's true that I never fell from anywhere, it doesn't mean our fate is death.
no1canbreakyou: (25 nothing can surpise me)

[personal profile] no1canbreakyou 2012-05-22 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know the details. Like I said, I never fell. All I know is that he managed to live.

[ And that he was allied with the blue hedgehog. Even if he didn't despise Sonic as much as he used to, it was still... a little bit of an injury to his pride that he had to work with him. ]
no1canbreakyou: (24 Nothing is unpredictable to me)

[personal profile] no1canbreakyou 2012-05-22 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
Quite.

[ Shadow turns his back on his doppelganger, walking to the nearby rings. ]

Through these rings are many areas for people to visit. I've been to a few of them, but hardly all.

It's your choice if you want to live now, or not.
no1canbreakyou: (43 Simply things you want to fear?)

[personal profile] no1canbreakyou 2012-05-22 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Hmph. Do what you want.

[ He doesn't waste any more time, instead leaping through a nearby ring. Being near his doubles made him a little uneasy... Specifically for the fact that knowing his future could be detrimental to himself. ]
