I’ll go with the story card.
Unknown Speaker: Are you truly enough of a traitor to do this insanity of an action, you speak of?
Ymir: The decision has been made, by me. There is no going back now.
Unknown Speaker: Do you understand the consequences of this choice, of your betray of us in this Overlord Universal Council?
Ymir: I am well aware of the timelines. We go as I have decided.
Unknown Speaker: We shall see how long you last.
Ymir: We shall see.
Some unknown time period later
Ymir puts their palm on the door face, unlocking intricate diagrams of force and holographic lines of power.
Adjutant: We have come a long way since the beginning, but now it is almost ready. 99.9% charged, my lord. At your command.
Ymir: Yes, you have done well, adjutant. How goes our forces?
Adjutant: They are fighting to the last of their internal energy reserves. Their efficiency in the new techniques you have distributed, is not yet proficient and the vampiric old guard methods are sustaining their wave assaults by cannibalizing their dead and injured. We have no such reserves to rely upon. From our original universe fortress, all that remains is the last line of defense around this solar system.
Ymir: That will have to be enough. * a pause*
Ymir: Do you also think my way is madness and that the Counsel was correct in their sanctions against me?
Adjutant: It is not my place to question the will of my lord, let alone the overlord of this unvierse.
Ymir: I am ordering you to tell me your honest impressions and those of any other of my loyalists.
Adjutant: Do you remember the first time we met and clashed in struggle over the dominion, over who will be master and who will be servant?
Ymir: Of course.
Adjutant: Then that is my answer. I laid broken before you, with no power reserves whatsoever. Instead of absorbing my energy and those of my line, you tore off a finger and threw it at me. You said, “eat it, if you wish to serve, otherwise perish”. From that choice onwards, I decided to give you my total loyalty and all those who followed me, even unto the death of this universe, no matter what happened later and no matter if the entirety of creation made you their enemy. All of your loyal forces are of the same mentality and spirit.
Ymir: And yet… all of your sacrifices may be for nothing in the end, if I am wrong in my course.
Adjutant: As you will, so shall we manifest it into being. You are the Creator God we serve, there is nothing else.
AI: The Throne to Heaven is ready, 99.9999% charge complete, for universe xz64n83w21
Ymir: Be Quiet. These artificial souls need a better naming convention. Adjutant, expend your last energy protecting this pyramid base. Soon it will all be over, one way or another.
Adjutant: We have no regrets, you are the wisest and most benevolent of all the system and universe overlords. It has been an honor to serve you, and my last wish is to continue that service if at all possible.
Ymir enters the doorway, walking into the throne room that has a seat ready for someone to sit in. They sit on the throne and the AI systems activate.
AI: Activate the Ancient Protection user interface?
AI: User interface activated, system overlord privileges accepted. What is your command?
Ymir: Disable the protection system and open a direct path to the Divine Heart worlds.
AI: Please verify? Warning, this is a choice equal to suicide.
Ymir: Do it. smirks Even in this age, idiocracy is still in our user interfaces. Now all that remains is to see if they were right or if I am right. Have we truly been fooled all this time in our dominated universes, that this sealed stargate to the Heartworlds is contaminated with a weapon specifically designed to make us vulnerable and kill us all off? If they are right, I would have doomed not only my universe but the entire Stellar Council of dominions. It is merely logical that they would bridge into this universe and attempt to stop me, even if all 12 of them did not quite make it in time. It is a shame that I had to use up almost all of my forces. They were quite favored and loyal servants. But their time to be of use had come. I am the Creator. What serves me, serves the Creator and the Creation itself.
At the end of this all, have I truly bought into a lie? Were we just more clever slaves of some higher power that deluded us into thinking we were masters of all that we saw? What is the truth of Creation, that I will know, no matter what it costs.
AI: System networks 100% charged, final portal and stargate ascension re-initiating, final fail safes engaged. Fail safes disengaged, stargate portal stabilizing.
** The portal energies siphoned a miniscule amount of power from the Divine Heartworlds, transferring them to this 13 universe network that had been cut off from the Source of Eternal Life and Power for quite some time. Ymir, sitting on the throne, became the focal point of this web of energy, absorbing it and integrating it. Ymir’s form began to destabilizing and break down, the mind body spirit complex could not handle the sudden influx of energy. The Mer Ka bah destabilizing, destroying the pyramid and throne, unleashing a chain reaction that spread through the universe, creating a black hole sucking in every other universe connected to it.
Ymir: Damn, now that’s one hell of a way to go. snaps finger
Time reverses backwards and events that happened, no longer happened.
Ymir: Now what exactly went wrong here. This amount of energy is very strange, and I could not absorb it. Very strange. There is a sentience to it, a kind of message. What does this message say… We are all one? Nani, what kind of idiocracy is this. I am all we are, and we are all just me and more of me. If I am reading this right, this energy deliberately networks energy into one cohesive and equal web of network. The king is equal to the beggar and the beggar is equal to the gods. Now this truly is idiocracy. No wonder attempting to use it, collapsed our reality into a black hole.
It is definitely not something I can handle it given my current mind body spirit complex. Now what possibly could I do to resolve this… time and space are frozen for an eternity, for now. But my options are limited. I have to do something in an accelerated alternate reality or timeline, and then immediately apply it here. I can hold the timeline frozen, but I cannot reverse it backwards forever. I am truly interested in where this portal led and why the ancients sealed it off, warning us never to open it for the Enemy was on the other side. Certainly this energy is powerful and potent, even more so than the 13 dominions all put together as it seems to be ever replenishing unlike our energies. But it is also soft, naive, and rather stupid.
AI (S), list potential solutions.
Fragment yourself and start life anew as recycled trash of creation.
Admit defeat, delete this timeline, and change your decision.
Go to another density, rework your mind body spirit complex, and rebuild yourself.
Ymir: About option 3, doesn’t that mean I will lose pretty much everything I have, what is different compared to 1 then?
AS: The civilizations that disappeared in the neighboring universes, utilized option 3.
Ymir: Oh really, so now we know what happened to them. This data must have come from the opened portal. So that’s where they went, they didn’t destroy themselves after all.
I don’t have many choices here. I’ll go with 3. Adjutant, you are summoned.
Adjutant: What is your will, my lord?
Ymir: I’m going on a little vacation for awhile. When I am back, I will harness this new found energy and throw off the attack by the 12 Dominions. Artificial Soul and wannabe intelligence, do it.
Ymir has lost all higher level abilities and powers.
Ymir must reconstruct the mind body complex using 3rd density mechanics and depleted stats. RPG game begins.
