KAIJU FIGHT!!!!

___________________________________________________________________________________

It waited beneath the sands, moving through the earth, consuming that which lay before it. It moved suddenly to the other place, the place with the black sky and the ocean that wasn't an ocean. Beads of glass replaced the dirt, rock and sand that it had been consuming, but it ate the spheres no less rapidly than it did the sands. Burrowing through the sea with the same determination.

The spheres flared to life inside it when they were eaten, granting fresh vigour, life, energy.

It slammed into something solid, stopping its progress through the sea. It felt along the surface of the barrier, feeling for perhaps the millionth time the walls of its prison. The walls extended in both planes that it lived in, shutting it off from any means of getting out, and they had proven impossible to destroy with force. It was rare that the Devourer even tested the walls these days, but this time it was thankful it did. It felt something different about the wall, a weakening that was rapidly growing.

The wall began to give under the pressure of its claws, began to tear as it bit into it with its mandibles.

Finally the wall shattered entirely, releasing it from the small cube of ocean that it could normally feed on, and out into the wider ocean. The limitless source of food for it to consume.

It moved back to the other place of sand and earth, finding itself similarly unconstrained there. The walls were gone.

It moved through the earth, consuming new earth at last. A few small, burrowing creatures were consumed as well. Gone before they knew it was coming.

It pulled at some of its sand, raising itself up on a few ribbons, it breached into open air. A small, wooden thing lay in front of it, bulbous at the base it branched out into many branches. The Devourer reached out with one of its claws, delicately pulling the Boab tree from the ground before ramming it into its mouth.

A small treat, not filling enough for its tastes. It could range far now, devour more. Devour everything.

To the west it saw a large blue surface, the ocean of this plane. It wondered if devouring that would give it energy the same way the ocean of the other place did. It wondered if that hated creature was still in the oceans of this place. The Devourer hoped that it was, so that it too could be devoured.

FIGHTERS:

The Deep:
An enormous serpent that lives within the deeps of the ocean.
Abilities: Uses a combination of Tension, Adhesion and Gravitation to manipulate the seas on a large scale. Can phase itself across all three realms, causing it to have similar properties to a Shardblade. Greatly enhanced healing and physical abilities.

Devourer:
An enormous scorpion, spends its time burrowing through the earth.
Abilities: Transportation which it uses periodically to move back and forth between the Physical and Cognitive Realms, popping in and out of existence, devours the cognitive essence of objects which it is able to convert into raw Investiture, sand mastery, Greatly enhanced healing and physical abilities.

BEGIN:

The Deep lay at the bottom of the ocean, where it had been for a long time. Trapped, imprisoned so far down even its gargantuan movements didn't have much effect on the surface world, now just a distant memory in The Deep's instinctual, predatorial mind. Not much came within the confines of these walls, not much lived here anyway. The Deep made by with what it had. But still, it served its masters. It was loyal. It was good-behaved.

Even if it hadn't been used in upwards of about 10,000 years.

This prison was confining. The Deep didn't even bother swimming around in it, for it knew that it would eventually just lead to a wall, one that would cover all of the realms, so that there would be no way for it to escape, not even with its unique ability of phasing through the realms. Zipping back and forth between the unimaginably deep ocean it rested in to the vast expanse of the Cognitive underground, it travelled between both before phasing into the Spiritual Realm. Time and space didn't matter here, but still The Deep was blocked.

Still.

Something changed.

It didn't make a sound, nor was it seen, but sensed, for the next moment, the snake wasn't blocked. Zipping back to the Cognitive to the Physical and vice versa The Deep couldn't sense it's boundaries any longer. It was... what was the word? Free? It seemed like a foreign concept as The Deep swirled, and then launched itself upwards, moving faster than a steel compounder through its waters, but still taking a while before it shot out of the surface, the light blinding.

Free. The Deep snarled, opening its jaws and letting loose its fangs. It lay, almost 1000 feet in height, it's serpentine body snaking out of the waters. The scariest thing? Most of it was still underwater. Looking around, The Deep tried to take in most of its surroundings. Tilting its head, it-

Ohit thought, spotting that, that thing in the distance, on the sand. It's you.

They met eyes for a moment, each knowing exactly what they thought of each other.

And charged.

At what is hopefully a safe distance, someone sets up TV cameras. This is going to be awesome on film.

Several lingering Cognitive Shadows watched from the Cognitive Realm.

It wasn't very interesting, because the life forms were represented only by little flames.

The shadow of Hellbent grew bored of waiting. He walked over an touched one of the giant flames. He could suddenly see from it's perspective. This is fun. More fun than I've had since I died.

Nei'an laughed out loud. He then took his spot at the other giant flames and grinned at Hellbent.

It seemed that the Devourers prison wasn't the only one that had been released. It watched the creature rise up from the deeps and give the Devourer a baleful stare before it charged forwards.

The Devourer charged at the same time, eight legs moving in a blur of speed as it rushed across the sands that it had been trapped in. It dragged the sands along with it, raising countless ribbons out of the ground and into the air until an entire desert floated along in the air, leaving a large hollow where once had stretched endless sands.

An enormous spear of sand formed above, larger even than the Devourer or its foe, and with a single swift thrust of its claw, the Devourer sent the spear hurtling towards the Deep, spinning rapidly to allow it to pierce even more efficiently.

The Devourer itself followed up by shifting itself immediately next to the Deep, closing the dozen kilometers that had been between them in an instant. It attacked with claws, mandibles and stinger, and from the other side pulled the giant spear towards them both.

Hellbent ignored Voidus, who was being immature, and patiently waited until the fight continued.

The Deep was not in the mood to play. As it rushed through the vast expanse of water below it, using Gravitation to keep it under its whim, The Deep was momentarily surprised to see Devourer charging as well. Oh, how The Deep hated it! It's masters had made a mistake when they placed the two next to each other.

As The Deep let out a feral scream, it speared itself forward, fangs outstretched, each one bigger taller than a tower, as it opened its jaws wider than possible, pouncing on its prey. But there was no prey. Instead, a spear of sand darted at a The Deep.

Interesting, The Deep didn't know animals were smart enough to do that. Some would say The Deep was an animal too, but they were wrong. No, The Deep was a good boy. Not an animal. A good boy.

Growling in annoyance, The Deep hurriedly summoned two tidal waves out of the ocean to crisscross and block the spear, though the attack was thourough and large, so even the force of dual tsunamis couldn't stop the small fragments of remaining sand (each of which was the size of a blue whale) from scratching its skin.

Argh! It thought as Devourer teleported directly next to The Deep, pinching some of its skin with its claws. You want to play close-quarters, do you? Screaming a seismic roar, The Deep twisted and turned its snake body, almost completely wrapping itself around the Devourer, and squeezing.

With a territorial hiss it surged itself further out of the ocean, Devourer wrapped around, until they were almost at atmospheric level. Then, with one swift movement, The Deep went downwards, smashing the Devourer at one hell of a bellyflop, making a 100 foot splash, before trying to take it downwards, to the depths.

As their two titanic bodies began to wrap and struggle against each other, the Devourer pulled its spear in, a lot of it was lost to the large torrent of water that was sent to oppose it, but some managed to get through, scoring a deep scratch against the surface of the Deep. But even as it watched, that wound began to heal itself over, sealing shut into seamless scales again.

The rest of the sand was carried back to shore by the tsunami, forming a new peninsula as it crashed into the landmass, but sodden as it was it wouldn't be of any more use to the Devourer.

Instead it launched an entirely physical assault, grasping and holding with its two claws it struck with its stinger again and again, injecting an olympic pools worth of venom into the body of the Deep, though it seemed to be healing the damage faster than the venom was causing it.

Hissing in frustration the Devourer strugled to get a better grip when its body was slammed into the surface of the ocean, ending a giant spray of water upwards as the Devourer was dragged deeper and deeper.

The pet wants to take me back to its cage? The Devourer thought, noticing their trajectory seemed to be taking them back where it had first emerged. Of course it would go back. It's probably to afraid the masters will punish it for escaping.

Well it wouldn't trap the Devourer back in there, it would finish the Deep off first and grow stronger when it too was devoured.

Opening its mouth, the Devourer tried to suck in the water of this ocean, testing if it could provide it strength in the same way the ocean of the other place did. But as the water entered its stomach it simply vanished in the same way that ordinary dirt did.

Disappointing.

It shifted to the other place, appearing in mid air before falling to the floor. The ocean not present here like it was when it shifted from the land.

Urgh. No food. No energy.

It devoured the few specks of flame that flickered through the area, some small creatures like the ones on land. But there weren't enough to satisfy it.

Shifting back it tried attacking the deep from its new position, further below. Striking repeatedly with its stinger.

Serve the masters. Serve the masters.

If it was one thing The Deep hated, it was disobedience. But it wasn't disobedient, no master, it was not. It followed instructions, and it did them well. The last time it had been unleashed, civilisations had crumbled underneath its weight. It couldn't stand for disobedience. It couldn't stand for savagery. It couldn't stand that.

As the scorpion disappeared from its grip and reappeared underneath The Deep, testing it with its stings, the serpent couldn't help but feel a seething hate. An animalian, vicious, hate. Nature vs Nuture, and The Deep was leaning towards the former now.

Feeling the venom course through its blood, The Deep ignored the brief stings of pain every now then as it wrapped its tail around the Devourer's, spinning around faster and faster. While they were deeper then any man had gone, it still couldn't stop a whirlpool from forming on the surface.

Peaking its spin, The Deep quickly phased itself and the Devourer into the Cogntive place before throwing the beast down, hoping the impact would have an effect.

Yes, yes yes. That'll teach you.

The Deep wanted to convey its thoughts on how it felt about the Devourer, but all that came out was a brutal, echoing, roar. Close enough.

The Devourer slammed into the ground, feeling  its carapace crack under the force of its impact, some of its softer innards beginning to show through the holes in its armour.

It grabbed a small handful of the nearby beads, very few existed here but there were still a scant few across the floor. They gave it a small surge of energy, sealing shut the armoured plates and reforming its internal structure.

The Devourer turned its gaze upward, glaring with hatred towards the Deep that still hung above. The Devourer spent almost as much time in this realm as the other so it wasn't uncomfortable, but this time it had been brought here forcibly, against its will.

That thing will pay for this. It hissed within its mind.

Shifting itself to the Deep, it caught a handful of its body with one claw and began to squeeze, exerting a pressure that could crush mountains and turn forests into wood dust.

Snap. Snap in two so I can suck the innards. Snap and DIE.

There. A hole. The Deep scrambled to make use of the Devourer's weakness before it sucked in the energy from the spheres, powering it, and then caught The Deep's own, strengthening its death-grip, trying to crush The Deep. It wouldn't happen instantly, but The Deep had no carapace like the monster before it, and so something needed to happen. Fast.

Meanwhile, the venom was still inside of The Deep, though it had diminished greatly since the original sting. Stil, however, it's effects could be felt. That was annoying. The Devourer held further, almost crushing The Deep now. Sparks.

Oh, STORM you, it thought in fury as it frantically wrapped itself around the Devourer's claw, before phasing into the Spritual Place with it. Storm you all the way to damnation, beast. Master would not be proud.

Time and space had no meaning in the Spiritual Place. Therefore, when The Deep phased into it, it could effectively fold the Realm to reappear anywhere else. It hadn't practised in a while, but it gave the move a shot anyway, moving with a bestial pace and instantly reentering the Physical Realm, this time high above the ocean, falling. To any onlookers, all they would see would be two monsters of unimaginable size appearing out of the clouds, battling it out in midair.

As they fell, the Devourer's grip only grew tighter, and The Deep felt itself slipping. No. NO. Biting wasn't enough. Commanding the surges of Tension, Adhesion and Gravitation, it coalesced the water. All of it. A large and temporary crater formed as the water once covering it now went above, forming with the other billions of groups of water as they formed one long, reflective spike, taller than The Deep and way larger, forming a titanic circular base as it grew smaller and smaller as it grew higher and sharper until it reached its apex, a point that bore the weight of the entire spike, and a point sharper than The Deep's own fangs.

Clawing each other, grappling to get the upper hand, The Deep desperately attacked the Devourer's carapace, trying to find a gap for its fangs to fit in. Trying to find a weakness among its many strengths. Monsters often had many strengths. The Deep was not a monster. Twisting and turning, The Deep finally managed to get the Devourer right where it wanted, though not under extreme stress. Right in position.

Right in the line of the spike.

Master would be proud, it thought as they descended, ready to take the pair back to the Physical Relam should the Devourer try to dodge by realmatic movement, holding it in place. Maybe, just maybe, it could impale it, and not suffer more injuries than it already had.

It wasn't breaking.

The Devourer squeezed with all its supernatural strength, tried to grind its claw against the scales of the Deep to carve in deeper but it wasn't breaking. It refused to snap, tear or break. But it was weaknening. The Devourer could feel the muscles underneat slowly losing their tension.

Yes. You will see who was more favoured by the masters. They knew I was strong. Stronger than the others. So they gave me hunger, so I would devour everything and become even stronger.

It felt reality warp around it but paid it no mind, all it had to do was maintain the grip. Keep breaking until the meal before it stopped fighting back.

Reality warped again and it felt the familiar sensation of gravity pulling it to the earth. But that wouldn't distract it either. It would survive any fall that the Deep could impose on it. The Devourer closed its eyes, focussing all of its strength on the grip it still held.

You. Will. Break.

The Deep was biting into it in return, seeking to crack through its hardened armour. That was fine. When it devoured the Deep it would have enough energy to heal again. The Deep tightened its grip, holding the Devourer still, but where would it go? It's enemy was right here, it had no need to run.

A spear of solid force slammed into its back from above, beginning to widen the crack in its armour that the Deep had started to carve, driving it into the ground.

The Devourer opened its eyes with a snap, only now seeing the tower of water above it that seemed to stretch beyond up and up until it vanished beyond the atmospheres reach. The tower with a single point that was currently crashing into its back.

Its grip on the Deep loosened as it saw the ground rapidly approaching below. The fall itself would do no serious harm to either of them, but the Devourer was the only one that had a titanic spear crashing into its back, ready to crush it between the two forces.

Fine.

The Devourer shifted to the other place, momentarily escaping the weight of water against its back and looking around for something else to Devour. But there was nothing left. There was never enough food for it in the ocean anyway and it had already devoured what little there was. But it at least here it didn't have to worry about that huge-

It was suddenly back in the physical place, the spear still held against its body, the Deep crushing it, holding it in place.

You. Stupid thing. Hated thing. You were not their favorite. I was.

The Devourer tried to shift itself somewhere else in this place, move itself directly to the ground and away from the spear. But the Deep had wrapped around it entirely, the power in its body blocked any attempt to shift past it.

The Devourer crashed into the ground, its legs buckling under its own weight but the small cracks that formed in its armour were already healing, using up what remained of the power it had devoured. But then the weight of the spear crashed into its back once more, forcing it to the ground, cracking its armoured plates and piercing through the softer flesh that lay underneath. Piercing through the ground that was underneath, pinning the Devourer down, a huge gaping hole filled with water where once it's body had been.

I was their favorite.

The Devourer struggled weakly, body still struggling to heal around the huge hole but unable to displace the water that was still there. It's stinger struck weakly at the Deep, trying in vain to secure another hit. To stab its hated enemy and fill it with venom.

The duo crashed into the water as the Devourer loosened its grip on The Deep, though not without leaving a permanent dent on its scales.

As they went further and further down, the Devourer’s carapace also opened up, becoming weaker. As The Deep continued to attack a large tail came out of the side and stung The Deep, which let out a scream in agony.

More poison in its bloodstream, and the super healing wasn’t enough. If The Deep wanted to fully eject the venom, it would need to stay back and heal for a while.

But there was no time. Monsters needed to be took down.

Trying to fight off the now constant pain all over its body, The Deep slithered over to the Devourers tail and wrapped around it.

You always stretched the rules when we were young, It thought as it pulled the Devourer sharply in one direction, commanding the water to pull it in another, relying on the already breaking carapace to finally give. Let’s see how well you stretch now.

The Devourer felt the constriction around its tail, then another force gripped it around the head and pincers, yanking in the opposite direction.

It screeched into the water, ejecting a stream of bubbles but the Deep exerted too strong a hold for it to break from something like this. The water felt as solid as concrete, ordinarily even that wouldn't be enough to contain it, but with a large crack in its armour already, severe internal damage and not enough energy to heal itself, it could feel its strength continue to weaken.

I. Lose? Its thoughts were muddied, struggling to maintain a line of reasoning beyond the pain. But you too will end. All will be devoured. Even if I pass.

It could feel the tear in its armour widen, beginning to form a crack that spread accross its entire body, finally separating one half of the armour from the other. Its body was torn in two, the stinger on its tail still repetitively stabbing forth in a final attempt to pierce the Deep just one more time, but it was already restrained, the muscles had no more strength left.

It's eyes stayed open, glaring at the hated form of the Deep through the water that still contained it.

Even the masters will end.

With a final, traitorous thought, it passed into the cognitive realm one final time before moving on to the Beyond.

Yay! 

The Deep ripped the Devourer in half, sending its pieces across the ocean and swimming up to the surface, to new prey.
