During the evening hours on Earth, Markus showed back up in the CIA hidden base where everyone was waiting. When he walked in, the reaction to his face was immediate.
"What the hell happened to you!?" Montai shrieked. She was shocked at Markus being in a wheelchair.
"Look, just...stay away from Tracy, alright?" Markus immediately answered.
"What's going on? Where's Noland and the others?"
"Well, Noland, Kendrick, and Nero are on Gundalia doing whatever. Tank and Allen are back here now, but that's the least of our problems. Tracy ended up using dark magic, and now, a string of bad things started happening ever since I brought her back."
A flashback occurred that showed Markus going into a Chick-Fil-A to get some well-deserved nourishment. He was getting ready to walk inside of the restaurant. Some people on the inside started freaking out and ran in random directions.
"What the fuck...?" Markus thought. Suddenly, a shadow of a car started creeping closer and closer until...
"It happens," Montai suspected. "By the way, that kid's Alana's son."
"Awww. Congrats, but seriously, call someone. Please," Markus begged.

"What!!??" someone shouted at the top of their lungs. "How does that even happen!? That's not supposed to happen! It never happened! Gotdammit it!"
This was the United Stated Army General having a major issue with one 'roadblock' in the middle of a busy intersection in Washington D.C. For some unknown reason, Giganox was getting muscle cramps, so he was laid out in the middle of the street getting stretched out by a squad of Juggernauts.
"Sir, it'll be about five minutes, sir!" one of the soldiers told him.
"Five minutes!? That'll back up all of D.C. at this rate!" the General complained. "I'm not trying to get smoke blown up my ass by the President! I was supposed to meet him one minute ago! And why the hell did you bring Giganox out anyway!?"
"Sir, I don't know, sir!"
"You don't know?"
"Sir, yes, sir!"
"How is that even... Oh my God. I'm about to kill someone." As he said that, his phone started ringing. He didn't need to check the caller ID to know who it was. He answered it immediately. "I apologize for this, Mr. President... Yes, that is Giganox lying out in the middle of the street... I don't know. I didn't tell these idiots to bring him out. They tell me he's flying through the air, and then he drops to the ground in pain over some charley horse... I didn't know that happened to Bakugan either... You're going to put the Army on blast in front of the media?... I know...I'm disappointed in myself too..."
The General hung up the phone in disappointment. "Thanks guys..."
"Sir, you're very welcome, sir!" a soldier joked.
"You son of a bitch!" The General ran after this soldier, but the guy ended up juking him hard and broke his ankles. The entire squad of soldiers were laughing so much that they were louder than the beeping horns from the traffic. "Fuck you guys... I'll get you later..." He pulled out a cigar and attempted to light it. For some odd reason, the lighter itself acted as a flamethrower that gave his face the golden brown texture that'll have the entire Army laughing for years.

After getting back from Equilibria, Tank tried to go back home. He TRIED...
He got to his car that was parked on GWU's campus. He had himself a modest black Hyundai Elantra...
"Wait...no..." Tank said in disbelief. He started searching the whole parking lot for his car, because this car wasn't it. "What the fuck, dude!? Where's my car!?"
"You forgot where you parked again?" Gladion wondered, as it always happened.
"I'm pretty sure I was parked where this Hyundai is right now... I think?" Tank returned to where it was. He found a folded paper stuck in its windshield. "Um...that wasn't there before..." The paper magically flew into his hand and opened on its own.
Yes, your Lamborghini was parked here, but we decided to tow it so we could see the look on your face when you come to pick it up. Unfortunately, when you do come over to get it, make sure you clean the seats. Two of our employees decided to have sex in your car. It smells like sweat and shit in there. Also, I was told that the guy ended up blowing his load all over the driver's seat. In fact, they were both guys, so I'm sure the other one came elsewhere. Good luck figuring out where.
Also, there was a note posted on the hood that said, 'Tracy did it.' Not sure what that means, but I'm sure you'll figure that out too. There was also something that said you were going to have it worse than everyone else because you cheated at something. You bad boy.
Before I forget, I was one of the guys, so...yeah. See you when you cum over. Heh heh heh. Don't be too fast now.

"...Maybe a fan from Dallas did that from what he did to Crash the other day," Montai tried to rationalize.
"There's more..." Gargulion told her.
Indeed, there was.
As soon as Tank found out who was responsible for this, he beat all of them up, and then went to tend to his car. Nothing happened to the car's exterior, so that was good. Unfortunately, he had to check the inside, and, well...any onlooker could tell that he was about to be very sick...
"Please don't open that door..." Gladion warned him.
"..." Tank didn't answer. He opened the door anyway, albeit in a very slow manner. When he did, he took one whiff, and gagged. He ran elsewhere to puke.
"...Idiot..." Gladion sighed.
By the time Tank came back, Gladion was reading the note that was on the windshield. The car was cleaned though.
"Thanks man..." Tank thanked. "So...what does it say?"
"Tracy did it..." Gladion read. "She cursed us."
"What do you mean by 'curse'?"
"Bad luck, random disasters. That type of 'curse.'"
"How does that even happen?"
"Probably did something stupid with magic. I dunno. Oh, and thanks to you, you and I are cursed more than the others."
"...You didn't stop me from doing it!"
"I shouldn't have to!"
"So, what? I helped with saving the world here and there. I can't have anything in return?"
"Not when I end up paying the price for it."
"Nothing happened to you yet." After Tank said that, Gladion closed up into ball form and was surrounded by a purple energy veil. The sudden closure took Tank by surprise. For around ten seconds, he didn't know what to say.
"Um...Gladion...you alright in there...?" Tank checked. "...You can come out now... Please...?"

"Oh...this is bad..." Montai grieved now that she was convinced of something sinister going on here.
"Uh, yeah. Gladion's completely incapacitated and there's nothing we could do about it. Tank locked himself in his room until the curse is lifted, because he's too afraid that something will happen to him that he can't stop himself," Markus complained. "So, please, PLEASE call someone. I shudder to think about what'll happen to either Noland or Nero when they get back here. They have the worst luck out of all of us."
"...Does this mean I'm cursed too...?" Montai sighed.
"Well...we don't know..." Markus admitted.
"The only ones we know about are Markus, Tank, Sargon, and Gladion," Gargulion clarified. "I don't see any logic with Sargon getting hit by it, but...it happened, so..."
"You know, you all seem to always be involved in whatever shenanigans associated with Earth destruction or whatever," Montai noticed.
"Gee, thanks for noticing," Markus sarcastically responded.
"Hm... Okay. I know the right person for this. I'll call her immediately. For now, we just need to hold on," Montai assured them all.
Post by Noland Hardy on Mar 16, 2019 3:15:38 GMT -5
Noland was getting ready to burst into flames in his chair when he heard what Hydranoid said. That certainly explains what's going on right now.
"Tracy did it," Noland simply responded. "The things that are happening right now defy all common sense. I wish I knew how to stop it."
"I think Hydranoid makes a good point. Why US? We didn't use black magic," Drago agreed. "Maybe there's certain rules with this stuff that we don't understand."
"We also don't know how long this is gonna last. I wonder if this fusion can be negated somehow." When he said this, Noland raised his right hand to look through his contacts. He was getting ready to call someone. Unfortunately for him, that didn't happen.
Well...it did in a way. For some odd reason, Noland used Hyper Motion to appear in front of Alana. His right hand then stuck to her left boob and wouldn't come off.

Hospital staff and visitors were very quiet when the appearance of a certain woman graced their eyes. Their faces depicted them as being horrified, almost like they would be if a Gundalian walked right up in there and thought he was cool.
She lightly knocked on the open door before walking in. When everyone turned to see who it was, they could see it was Dasia. Just like the last time she was on Earth, she wore clothes that Earthlings like to wear. This time, it was a sky-blue shirt with blue jeans.
"Dasia, thanks for coming on such short notice," Montai greeted. "We REALLY need your help right now. We're all cursed."
"...Of course...this makes sense..." Gargulion started to realize.
"Cursed...?" Dasia asked. "Hm...okay. I'll get started right away then. But...this just doesn't look right..." Dasia looked closely at "Kendrew". Kendrick was never that tall or ripped, so something was clearly wrong. "Lace, if you would."
"Yes," a female voice spoke. A holographic version of the Dasia that fought against Noland and Drago at that final battle spawned in the room. It transitioned into an actual being made of flesh. She laid hands on "Kendrew's" forehead. Data started going through her body as she assessed the situation.
Through some unknown method, she was able to separate Kendrick from Nero's body. She dropped Kendrick on the floor while Nero still laid in the hospital bed.

"Oh my Lord..." Andrew loudly groaned after the forced separation from Kendrick. "What's gonna happen to me next?"
"You probably shouldn't say something like that while we're...cursed," Montai suggested. "Anyway, how are you feeling?"
"I feel GREAT. Really," Andrew replied in a sarcastic tone. "If there's anything else that's going to get me, please tell me now. I'd really love to get this over with so I can either die or go about my business. I can't take this anymore."
"Well...it doesn't look like either of you were negatively affected by the fusion, so we can be thankful for that at least," Montai expressed. "Still, we can't rest easy yet. We still need to figure out how to dispel this thing."

"I can get rid of the curse," Lace spoke up.
"...That's excellent! Please!" Montai begged before something happens to her.
...Not really time to say that yet... We can't just cure you as individuals..." Dasia rejected. She was looking down at her tablet to see the data that was retrieved from "Kendrew". "All of you aren't cursed in the sense that there's something specifically on you. Removing a curse from you all would do an awesome amount of nothing."
"...What...?" Montai confusingly asked.
"It looks like Tracy and Skystar are the ones who are cursed, but everyone else is paying the price for it instead. Your bodies only seem to be affected by it whenever something bad happens, but once it passes, it's gone. So, until I can see Tracy and Skystar personally, you're all going to have to watch your backs."
"Can't you give us some protection?" Montai wondered.
"The curse will come after me if I attempt to," Lace replied.
"I'm sorry. I wish I could help with that, but since I seem to be a secret weapon, I can't afford to be included in that."
Post by Andrew Bullock on Mar 19, 2019 1:19:33 GMT -5
"Um...excuse me...but...who are you and what do you do?" Andrew plainly asked.
"Oh. I assumed Montai informed you of my capabilities before I arrived. My name is Lace. I'm an artificial Vestal. My abilities revolve around the creation of powers. I can create powers that will help in a given situation and can either use it myself or gift them to someone else. It is through this ability that I intend to rid you of this curse problem," Lace explained.
"I know she looks like...well...me when I was...you know..." Dasia tried to explain. "My DNA was used to create her. I try to get her to wear something that doesn't make her look like...the 'other' me, but she claims it's too comfortable..."
"Oh... Does this attire bother anyone?" Lace wondered.
Post by Kendrick Hardy on Mar 19, 2019 1:32:13 GMT -5
"Nope. It looks great," Kendrick quickly answered before anyone else. Both Krakix and Siege emerged from Kendrick's pockets and hit him in the head. Based on this reaction, it was likely that Kendrick's answer was motivated by getting to review some...high quality 'research' material.
"Awww. Thank you," Lace welcomed. "Anyway, I should warn you all that this curse of yours seems to be very random. It even appears to be growing in power...almost as if it was alive."
"Well then, let's find Tracy then. Noland and Drago, thank you for volunteering," Montai forced.
"Yeah, you guys got this," Krakix encouraged. "...Rest in piece brothers..."
Atom: Yeah, no. The value of the materials within that device were worth less than $100. The specifics of it are more difficult, but the overall material cost isn't any more than that.

Merchant: Merchant: Tell that to quantum flux anchor, and anti-magic adamantine. The later being really hard to get.
Jun 7, 2020 15:40:54 GMT -5
Atom: Anti-magic Adamantine is quite plentiful in other Realities. Too bad you can't go to them. As for the Quantum Flux Anchor, never heard of something like that before.

Merchant: You use them to locked down teleports of any kind. Traps them in a single space. Why am I telling you that. You still ow me money. *He reaches for Atom full of ill intent.*
Jun 7, 2020 15:46:35 GMT -5
Atom: And, no. You are not getting any money from me. *I step away, making it harder for you to reach me.* It's your own fault for going after Grimm in the first place. Good research will save you money in the long run.
