Decided to make a sort of new plot, and this is the preview for it. Don't think I will be collaborating with anyone (and I'm still thinking if I should use anyone else's characters besides my own in this). This plot is mainly about Sinis getting corrupted since he discovered that a close friend of his, who is part of his race, survived and is now on Earth.
Random: Truth be told, I dislike practically all my characters. I can really only like a few, but most of the characters I own are pretty...eh. Either it's the way I wrote them up, or the way they developed, I just don't like them. For example, Sinis. A lot of people like/used to like Sinis, including myself, but the more I write him, the more he develops, the more I start to dislike him. I have tried killing him off before, but it would ruin the plot, so I usually have to bring him back or say it's non-canon.
This is just a heads-up and an explanation in case my writing starts to get a lot more harsh with my characters, I start killing my characters, writing styles change, or my writing just goes entirely awful. Thanks to everyone who still reads my pathetic stories.
P.S. New age/period.
Ending Up With Nothing
June 20, 2063
Friday, 3:42 pm
Sinis was sitting in his Lab, repairing an armorpiece for a Feroxi Colonel. It had been several days, or a week, since he had discovered his childhood friend had survived his home planet's implosion, and had arrived on Earth. He couldn't be happier, and couldn't have asked for anything more than to share multiple drinks with a best friend. Mostly, the only time he would see his friend, Ayren, would be in clubs, bars, or any sort of celebration/partying area. Though, as Sinis continues to fix the armor, he began to wonder the words Ayren shared as they were drinking from Sinis' wine cellar:
You are a god amongst men. You created all these low-lifes, didn't you? Bellarmine exploded, and this race was created. This makes you their god! You are a god. We are gods. Sure, you're in power now, but why not extend that power throughout the entire planet? You have every right to.
Sinis smiles. Ayren always had a manipulative mind, and he tended to be power-hungry. But he would never go far, and he had good intentions. Thouuugh..perhaps..
Sinis looks towards the door, and upon allowing Lab to open her doors, Ayren steps in. Sinis grins, walking over and greeting Ayren.
"Wow. So this is your..man-cave. Or your secret research facility, yet not so secret." Ayren looks around, slipping off his jacket.
"Hahaha, funny. What brings you to my man-cave?" Sinis walks back to the counter.
"Just wanted to invite you for another drink. On you this time, since you seem to have unlimited wealth." Ayren sits down next to him.
"I have work to do. Been slacking off with you as it is." Sinis welds two pieces together. "You're a bad influence as it is." He jokes.
"But, I'm usually right. Besides, you've never been this relaxed, so enjoy it as it is, hm?" Ayren chuckles. "Your wife keeps pressure on you I'm sure."
"Well, she's my wife. Love her as she is, and hopefully she loves me as who I am."
"You mean, as who you are as a human." Ayren grunts.
"Meaning?" Sinis continues to fix the armor.
"Have you not thought about what I told you? You're not human, but you act more like it here. You remember us, the Keepers. We didn't have..well, soul-like beings in ourselves. We're beings of power, not souls." Ayren explains. "You deserve more than this. This is a petty life compared to back home...if you remember what home is."
"I remember, since memory is the only thing I have left, besides you." Sinis turns his head to Ayren.
"Then take that memory and use it!" Ayren stands, pacing. "Look at you, sitting here like a mechanic. No such thing as a godly mechanic. You can do more than what you show now, Sinis. I know it..And you know it too."
Sinis sighs. "Ayren, I can't. I've gone down that road before, and I never really had the chance to make up to what I did on that path. I'd rather not let myself be power-hungry and corrupted."
"No." Ayren crosses his arms. "I'm not saying you should be corrupted. I'm saying that you should take your rightful place as-"
"As god?" Sinis stands. "I've done that before, again. Don't want to anymore."
"Doesn't mean you can't." Ayren snaps his fingers, appearing on the other side of the room. Sinis turns. Ayren points at the armor. "Look. Again. You deserve more than this. What is the harm of taking what's yours? Of stepping up? It's a coward move not to, and you know..You know that Togani would have said so too."
"Don't talk to me about Togani." Sinis snaps.
"I'm just saying." Ayren holds up his hands. "You are not who you are now, and you should be who you really are."
Sinis winces, sitting back down on the chair. It was really stressful to be who he was now. He did a hell of a lot more work than a lot of people, yet he was the most powerful. Why have that life, when he could have just have the power factor?
"You know.." Sinis mumbles. "Maybe you're right.."
Ayren grins. "Aren't I always?"
Lab groans after this moment, and flickers her lights.
"What's wrong with the TARDIS?" Ayren looks around.
"TARDIS? Tardis blue?" Sinis raises his eyebrow.
"Nothing. A reference." Ayren clears his throat.
Lab immediately opens her doors, and both Ayren and Sinis look towards the entrance. A tall figure immediately steps in, lowering his head as to not smack his head against the frame. He looks down at the two Keepers, and narrows his eyes as his mask retracts back into his armor.
"Get out, Ayren. I have to talk to Sinis alone." Lucas' voice rumbles.
Ayren raises his both his eyebrows, and turns to Sinis, who nods. Ayren sighs, and says: "Well, I'll catch you on that drink later. Be waiting at the Blue Moon."
Ayren walks out, grabbing his jacket as he does so. Lucas watches him leave with the doors closing to announce his exit. Then, Lucas turns back to Sinis.
"You shouldn't talk to him like that." Sinis says, placing the armor on a separate table.
"I can talk to him like that as much as I want." Lucas growls. He eyes at the armor. "Isn't that Anya's?"
"Yeah, but I'm not going to finish it. She never gave me a deadline, and I don't like her." Sinis shrugs, sitting back down.
Lucas blinks. Sinis turns to him. "Anyways, why are you here? What's so important?"
"Ayren." Lucas says.
Sinis groans. "Not this again. Look, he's my best friend. I've known him longer than anyone on this bloody planet. He's trustworthy."
"He fucks power in the ass." Lucas growls back. "He wants to be at the top, no matter what. He might even get rid of you just to do that."
"You don't know him. I do." Sinis raises his eyebrow.
"I don't need to know him to know that he's convincing you to be practically a king." Lucas stares down at Sinis.
"He's not." Sinis stands, narrowing his eyes. "All he says is that I should take what's rightfully mine, Lucas. He's right, and that's what I'm counting on."
Lucas growls. "He got to you already, didn't he? He's a trickster. He manipulates people so much, Sinis. He's manipulated his 'best friend'. You are one hell of an intelligent person, so right now, you are not thinking clearly." Lucas taps his head repeatedly.
Sinis growls, swatting Lucas' fingers away. "You do not get to talk to him like that, and certainly not me. He's right. I am the creator of this planet, of everything on it."
"No, you're not. You created a nightmare of your own doing, and that is blowing up your home planet. Earth is a backfire, and just a representation of your mistake. We thrive, you demote yourself to such a degree. And that's if you keep thinking like this." Lucas says.
"I can bring you down swiftly." Lucas continues. "You continue like this, I have no other choice but to slam you against the wall, and knock some sense into you even when you're unconscious. I won't care if you're barely breathing, because I'll be so grateful you're not a miserable sap of of self-pity/self-guilt."
Sinis blinks, listening to Lucas' words as his fists clench.
"Sinis, You're so desperate for practically anything that you fucking blind yourself. By then you're capable of hurting others and yourself, and I'm pretty tired of dealing with that." Lucas growls.
Sinis suddenly grabs a monkey wrench from the counter and heaves it at Lucas' face, slamming the metal tool into Lucas. Lucas falls back onto the floor, holding his nose in pain. Sinis bends down, slamming the wrench into Lucas repeatedly until he stops, grabbing Lucas' hair forcefully. He pulls Lucas up, hissing hatefully:
"You...should treat me with more respect."
Lucas looks up at him, dazed. Adrenaline pumping through him, he pushes Sinis back, and gets up, slamming his foot into Sinis' chest. Sinis grunts, glaring at Lucas as he grumbles:
"I suggest you bow."
"What?" Lucas blinks in confusion as he growls again.
"I said." Sinis snaps his fingers. "BOW."
Flames slam into Lucas' chest, throwing him to the wall, leaving a fiery wound on his chest. Lucas falls face-first onto the floor, groaning as searing pain reaches into his chest.
"Much better." Sinis' voice floats into Lucas' ears.
Lucas turns his eyes towards the door, where Sinis' figure was. Sinis was pulling on his coat as he said:
"Now, you stay there like a good boy. I'm going out with Ayren. Stop me, and you'll be dead before you start."
Sinis tries to open the doors, but Lab moans, keeping the doors locked. Sinis growls, snapping his fingers. Fire melds through the metal doors, causing the lights to flicker severely as Lab's walls creak and groan in pain. Sinis steps through, adjusting his tie as he makes his way to his car.
Lucas flips over onto his back, looking up at the ceiling.
