Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”
Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?
Don’t you fuckin do this to me
tony stark who has stark tower set to identify individual people as they enter by playing certain songs as they walk through the door or even take a step inside
steve and bucky walk in together and suddenly there is a garbled mix of both “the star spangled banner” and “enter sandman”
natasha steps through the door and suddenly “from russia with love”
bruce swings by from his lab and “blinded me with science” blares
thor bursts through the doors and “rock you like a hurricane” rattles the surround
hawkeye tries to slip in through a window and suddenly “surfin’ bird”
this post is my patronus
I love whoever did this
oh my god
this is my favorite photo set. always will be.
Despite being very much mortal, Chaos fears something far more than she fears death. A cage. She absolutely cannot handle being caged, trapped or cornered in any way. A cornered animal is the most dangerous, for sure! The flashbacks alone will likely send her into a rampage and with various powers and forms to use… few things can contain her for long in this state.

Hallucinations… Those are crippling, to say the least. Chaos suffers from these from time to time and well… Having her hallucinate isn’t too good for the survival of anything around her. She always warns friends when she thinks that she might be on the verge of a mental breakdown, as such.
"Ah, I see… I won’t judge you and neither should anybody else. We all have our flaws and weaknesses. Even when I assume the form where I have no particular weaknesses, I consume so much energy that I cannot maintain it for long, so that might as well be my weakness like that."
Indeed, those were her teeth. In all of her forms she has an unusually high amount of teeth for a feline: 60. They are always needle-like and ruthlessly sharp. Her mouth is designed for raw power as opposed to rending, so her teeth are smooth rather than serrated. Who needs to tear when they can just crush the bone? That was the design philosophy at the Chimera Labs, at least.
"Yes… It was awfully painful at times. I didn’t mind the first round of experimentation, at Aperture Science. They were just granting a broken girl’s dream, to be fused with her cat. They might’ve been mad, but they at least had the decency to use anesthetic."
She sighs softly.
"Honestly, I liked my life at Aperture. Their insane science of quantum-tunneling and gels was like a giant playground for me. You have no idea how fun it is to hit terminal velocity and then bounce off of some good old repulsion gel!"
She smiles and fidgets with her tail upon being called beautiful. Few others have called her that and as so… she blushes heavily. The darkness and her thick fur obscure that well, fortunately.
"Even after all that I’ve been through… I’d say it was a fate better than if I’d just stayed on my homeworld. Sometime in the ten years that I was gone, everything was killed by the pollution. It was… heartbreaking at first… but I happen to have the fortune of being able to encounter beings of great power. One such creature helped me clean everything up and well… Life has returned. If I didn’t go through the Chimera Labs, my homeworld would’ve remained sterile for millions of years more."
She then moves to twirling some hair around a silvery stumpy finger-paw.
"I can’t tell you enough about how wonderful some of my friends are, heheh. Even if I’d only met them, it’d still be worth it. With my gift, I can never be bored again. I was born with an adventurous spirit and now I can explore the whole multiverse."
The feline gives a nod in return. She offers a hand-paw to the other… Yes, she definitely trusts him at this point.
"Seems like Gekigami’s woken up. No problem! I can get you to my home in this world before the storm hits. It’s just up the hill and over a bit. You might be lucky enough to meet some of my friends there, too!"
He listened intently to her words, however, for some of them, he decided a response was not needed. “So you were fused with your cat? Well I’m glad you got what you were looking for although I do wonder what happened to the consciousness of said cat. I bet the consciousness you are using right now is neither your human, cat, or robotic side’s is it?” He stopped there, not wanting to press on. She would explain in time, like most creatures, if she didn’t want to now.
"Your home world… It does seem to be in a form of crises. If you can figure out a way to get me there I have a friend, Pamela Isley, who can help in the growth of plants. Just a single touch from her hand can grant one such plant a the strength to grow past it’s full height in a matter of hours. She hears, speaks, and nurtures the plants. In Gotham, the villains call her ‘mother nature’. Mad as she may be, she could provide some aid."
Edward would have guessed that Gekigami was a creature of storm, whether they be god or goddess or perhaps an animal or mythical like creature was lost on him, all he knew was it wasn’t human. But he was okay with that… No doubt about it. Taking her paw, or was it more of hand?, he made sure his grip was tight enough to where they could start running and yet his hand wouldn’t release the limb.
"Friends can be like that. Some can go as far as being other dimensional beings, others are those that you never expected to be an existing species. All and all, despite abilities and talents, they’ll help you. I can’t imagine how amazing these characters are to you, it would only make sense. With how nice you’re treating me it kind of make me want to jump in and do something wonderful for you… If only I had the skill to really do something… All I could do is fix any bugs or glitches you may have…" The red-head said with a meek chuckle, he pictured her friends being amazing characters, most of them not human.
But he was glad, after all, in his eyes she was a person that needed help. A person that needed more friends than she can carry. “Hey Chaos, I have to say thanks for helping. I honestly didn’t expect anybody whom has set foot in Gotham, and wasn’t a criminal, to provide any aid to me. Shelter from a storm is an amazing thing in itself for me, despite the fact that it’s such a simple act of kindness.”
Chaos chuckles with a sly grin. Oh yes… That question is among her favourites to leave for a big, shocking reveal, but she thinks this Riddler is kind enough. Might as well spare all the drama and tension if it’s not needed.
"My crystal is a good indicator of who you’re talking to, along with my voice. Right now you’re talking to Buddy, the cat. My crystal is blue, whereas Sophie, the human girl’s, is yellow. Get as far away as you can when flashes of red appear though. That means that the robotic personality is coming out and let’s just say… it was programmed to kill all humans and human-supporters."
Her tail tip flicks over into that signature question mark pose of a cat comfortable and curious. Many fokelores have arisen from this unusual position, but the one that she remembers is that two cats were asked to guard a chalice. They curled their tails around the chalice and never let go until their master returned. By then, that crook was permanently added in.
"Pamela… I see. I might have to take you up on that offer sometime. At its current pace, it’ll take decades for hardwood trees to return. It’d be nice to see those big, strong sequoia trees in real life rather than in a holo-book for once! Getting from point A to B is easy with my gifts, so no need to worry about that."
Indeed, Gekigami is a creature of storm. He’s a tiger with a crossbow mounted on his back that fires lightning bolts. He’s the god of storms for this planet and has inspired the name for one of Chaos’ Pokemon companions, so things may get confusing to an outsider. Still, both are electric tigers.
She smiles softly at the touch. She really is a touchy-feely
"I can say that I’ve seen some odd creatures, heheh. I think the strangest so far might be a race of intelligent squids that lived on land in a desert. They needed my help to eliminate their predators, living frisbees. All I can say about that is different worlds, different rules, heheh. Thank goodness for robots and Reploids! They tend to be okay with the fact that I’m a talking cat much more so than organic life forms. Besides, it’s easier for me to repair a part over heal a wound if we ever got in trouble. Pigmasks and whatnot about there, hunting me down even though they lost already… Such a silly bunch."
This person is absolutely wonderful. She’s completely forgotten about her loneliness at this point! Sure, a thunderstorm isn’t her favourite thing in the world, but she has coping strategies. She’ll either find Terra, her Alakazam, or else plug her fluffy ears with fluffy cotton.
"Criminals and heroes aren’t too different to me at this point. Besides, my policy is to be kind to those who can tolerate my existance. It’s rare to find someone who’s okay with me, much less likes me, after all. Even the most adventurous cat needs some creatures to fall back on when their load becomes too heavy."
"Well, that was a good work out. I’m sure that it’ll be good now." he said to himself as he was walking down the street, before then the hedgehog noticed the two and blinked. "Oh…? Where are they off to?"
The hedgehog chuckled when Flare said that she liked him. Ah, he did get a lot, and he liked Flare too! The azure speedster knelt down and grins cheerfully, “And I like you too, Flare. I think you’re a really friendly friend!” well, he wasn’t sure to use person, so he went with that.
Sonic had his own business as to why he didn’t like Porky so much. He didn’t hate him because hating was something that he couldn’t do easily, but that didn’t mean that someone was safe from him. If he had business to deal with them you can bet your life on it that he’d eventually try to stop and finish the business that he had with them.
"So… You’re a Pokémon, right? I think I’ve met some of you before. During the tournament with the others. Although, it has been a few years now so you’ll have to bare with me when it comes to my memory."
In typical friendly canine fashion, Flare gives Sonic a big, slobbery kiss. She’s careful to lick going with the spines on his face, since she’s licked hedgehogs before. Even she knows how to learn a lesson!
"Yeah! Flare Pokemon! Flare make fire easy."
With that, her tails begin to wag happily. She even generates a breeze because of that! Nine tails flopping around add up quickly.
"She’s a fire type Pokemon and a rather friendly one at that, heheh. You have no idea how much better my life got with her around to light those little fires at night when my fur is soaked and my metal dented."
The hedgehog began to chuckle when he received the kiss, keeping still so that Flare can kiss where she wanted. The hedgehog’s quills only sharpened when he wanted them to, but in this case even though they could be sharp, they wasn’t as sharp as they would be in danger.
"Oh? So you can control fire too, Flare?" he asked with a warm smile, curious to her fire power. He knew someone that could control fire as well; Blaze. Blaze was a good friend of his and she is a princess, and also the guardian of the Sol Emeralds. "My, I reckon you must make some wonderful fire effects hmm?"
Sonic’s eyes turned to Chaos, and only could imagine what that was like for her. It was good to see that Chaos had Flare by her side - he knew that they would be the best of friends from how they were around each other.
"Aah, but you two make a great team. I think you both are such good friends that you have an unbreakable bond." like him and Tails.
It’s good that Sonic can control his spikiness pretty well. Even so, the cuddly Pokemon still takes precautions, in case that he couldn’t. Not all Sonics can, after all!
"Yeah! Flare breathe fire when she want to!"
She giggles with her tails wagging about all the more. She looks up to Chaos and after getting a nod, heads a safe distance away.
"Flare! Use Flamethrower!"
A lovely jet of flame then spews from her mouth for some time. When she’s finished, she trots back on over to nuzzle both Chaos and Sonic.
"Heheh, she’s one good little fox. Rather good company too! It’s hard to be sad when you’ve got an energetic little floofball around!"
Flare giggles like a toddler and nods.
"Unbreakable. It means we’ll never be separated, heheh."
It’s cute the way that Flare is still learning to speak human language. She gets head pats and pecha berries every time that she’s able to master a new hard word.
