After the duel of elements runs its course, Ben is revealed to have hightailed, following Targa. RED gives chase.
Right afterwards, Suicide Mouse is thrown down the elevator; However, the elevator falls on him in such a way that it does no damage, as he simply passes through the hole. However, Suicide Mouse is definitely not happy right now, and rolls out, casting Ultima Fireball, a spell which casts a large fireball in a specific location; He places it in the elevator.
X leans back, only one foot on the ground, looking at Jeff rather smugly.
X: "Now, whatever did I do to you, besides not being quiet?"
Pinkamena just sits there, flabbergasted.
Callis stops short as her arm becomes a blur of motion, using a hand engulfed in Ki to deflect the shiv and all incoming projectiles.
Narktus reaches for the alarm again... then realizes there's no point because the sirens are already blaring all throughout the station. "Dammit. You there!" He points a finger at the space marine. "Identify yourself! This space fortress is in the middle of a crisis, and I need to know if you're a prospective ally or another enemy!"
Slenderman is blown against a wall at the opposite end of the block by the Ultima Fireball. He flickers with static-y rage.
"... I blame you." Jeff suddenly vanishes. His knife, seemingly held in thin air (think either telekinesis or invisibility) grows to the size of a Buster Sword, as he proceeds to drop it like a hammer on X's head.

"I am Angry Space Marine I mean no harm I just want to..." Angry seems distant for a second
"I actually have no intentions so I guess I am an ally by those terms" Angry looks at Narktus
"What is happening and why did I wake up here to alarms going off like someone forgot to not smoke in a no smoke room" Angry is agitated by the alarm

Suicide Mouse keeps going on the magical offensive, firing multiple Dark orbs at Slendy. He smirks, reveling in seemingly taking the upper hand.
X's face grimaces for probably the first time in a long time. He steps quickly back, quietly assuming the Demon's Shadow stance.
He spoke quietly, and intently.
X: "I did what I had to do. We would have been killed. I saved us."
He pulls his "rear" hand over to his front, making the devil horns with his hand before dashing very quickly in front of Jeff, attempting a Dark Stopper.
If he succeeds, he simply stands back; either way, he speaks once more.
X: "I saved us before, and yet your thirst for petty revenge puts you right back in harm's way... and in mine."
Narktus places a palm on his masked face. Why is it always the crazies...
"Okay, listen up. This space fortress houses a terrifyingly powerful machine called Star Dream. Star Dream is a valuable member of the forces on board, but he's also tricky and highly agitating to work with. He just unleashed a swarm of cosmic horrors aboard this sector of the fortress - my fortress - after a certain blue-furred creature with black eyes made a vocalized request to fight someone who didn't know a martial arts style he had just been taught. If you want to help, go find the furball and escort him back here. We need to focus on defense now, not a search-and-destroy mission."
Slenderman lets out a horrifying hiss as he stands in place, spreading out his arms as if to make himself appear larger and taking the hits.
Then he lunges at Suicide Mouse with a spinning hand-swipe sorta like Yamcha's Gale Claws.
Jeff, not knowing what Meito Kieiken is, gets a seizure-fist to the head, dropping him to the floor.
Jeff, being in the middle of a seizure, barely comprehends what X is saying to him.
Targa comes running in. "X... Who are these two?"

The triclops paladin keeps charging up his ki, determined to go out with a dramatic flash.
Trying to isolate his mana as much as he can, he fires a barrage of Soul Cannon and Freudenstachel shots; and, a Combustion Beam from his eye for flavor.
"Um, mission? Also Calling me crazy is an understatement" Angry looks around still a bit alarmed from the Rude awakening
"Where do I go I have no idea where a blue creature is, got any leads?" Looks around ready to move where he is told to
Suicide Mouse blocks the attack, sliding backwards and slightly grimacing.
X is about to turn to Targa and respond, but BEN comes running in, sliding by X and bringing RED right to them, hopping on his feet and preparing some arrows.
X: "What are you doing here-"
BEN: "Getting the band back together! Less talking, more fighting!"
BEN shoots 5 arrows in a pentagon pattern, as X uses Demon Thunder in such a way to try and hit no one but RED.
Pinkamena pulls out her Cake Cannon, shooting a large glob of hardened batter at RED.

Callis grunts under the pressure. She puts her hands together in the Galick Gun stance as she begins to gather red-and-black energy.
GLaDOS descends from the ceiling. "A large number of lifeforms... and other creatures... have converged at the Observation Deck."
"Start there. Go out that door and take a right, then continue straight down the hallway until... well, I think you'll see them fighting."
Slenderman suddenly snaps his head towards the Observation Deck.
He strokes his chin as if mockingly contemplating something, then teleports away.
Slenderman materializes behind the cover of one of the turret-control seats.
Jeff the Killer gets up off the floor as his whole world becomes silent except for Slenderman's static. "I can hear... the perfect emptiness..." He drops his weapon and cracks a smile. Rather terrifyingly to anyone who notices, it's not the Slasher Smile he usually flashes to his victims, but a genuine smile of comfort.
Slenderman is about to take Jeff.
Thankfully, Targa notices and rushes Slendy, cutting off the cryptid's static as he teleports on top of Red's back to escape a Purgation Thrust.
Slenderman, ever the thankful one, smashes his hand into the ceiling as dozens and dozens of tentacles erupt forth, trying to wrap around Red's limbs and suspend the kaiju up in the air by them.

"Okay You got it" Angry Leaves and follows the directions given while talking to himself to try and make sense of everything
"So I wake up on a station in space and I wake up in the middle of a battle with monsters set loose, man it just keeps getting weirder"
Angry sees the fighting and decided to keep a bit of distance
He notes her charging an attack… and decides to go all in. If he's going to go out with a bang anyways, why the fuck not in a beam struggle?
The barrage suddenly ceases as all modes of his power flux; "Seishinken - Magnitude Rise!"
The amount of ki he's generating spikes incredibly as the technique quickens its gnawing away at his very soul; he's keeping tabs on it, but if pulled off wrong this could really fuck him up.
The four arms are splayed into a particular stance◊ as energy starts to flicker and his eyes glow with the psychic energy signaling his beginning to tap into psionic simulacrum of the State of Avatar.
"TRIO FINALÉ FLASH!!!"
Callis teleports right in front of Trigo.
"Galick Beam Cannon!"
Luckily for both of them, the beams collide with enough precise impact to push Callis away from Trigo instead of making a Budokai 3-style explosion on collision, although Trigo may also be pushed backwards.
Also Callis seems to be losing the struggle already; suppose that's what you get for using a basic super attack instead of an ultimate finishing move.
Awkeff, dressed in a more simple tunic than her usual armor, takes a swan dive off the bridge. She messes up her form mid-descent and ends up belly-flopping into the water below, making a big splash.
Trigo might be winning the struggle but holy shit is it taxing him. His genki starts to unravel under the strain of the output and he fights to keep from fully transitioning into the 'Avatar State'. His eyes glow with psionic power as he attempts to direct every source of energy he has access to; ki, mana, psi, and significant portions of his genki into the sluicing beam of power.
Callis is swiftly overwhelmed by the blast.
"... Heh. Not bad at all, triclops. You managed to hurt me at my full power."
She comes at Trigo from behind and tries to initiate a Super Mad Dance.
Trigo just wheezes as he lets his power drop. This is good-e-fucking-nough, nothing is on the line, and annihilating his soul for a little more power might be kinda stupid.
The Super Mad Dance tears into him, spraying blood and fragments of his armor in every direction; psionic energy bursts out wherever his skin is broken as he ends up slammed into the ground. His third eye is the only one open.
"H-huh… I'm still conscious…"
Oca pipes in as he bawoops nearer.
"You, uh, want a senzu?"
"... Sorry about that." Callis powers down.
She goes over to touch the Smash Ball spirit Master Hand had dropped here earlier, and it spontaneously merges into her, outlining her body in rainbow fire.
"... Huh. Something about this feels familiar. Oca, do you have any idea what that orb was about?"
"Nope. I already absorbified mine earlier though."
Trigo fucking pushes through the pain and manages to stand up. Well, not really, he's kind of hanging limp. He raises his body with telekinesis to try and make it look like he's standing straight up though.
Standing near the water's edge, Viserys, also dressed in casual attire◊ rather than his usual armor, winces in sympathy when Awkeff's attempted swan dive results in a belly flop. And since he was in the splash zone, the Nord Dragonborn also winds up soaked.
"Shor's bones, that looked painful..."
After removing his tunic, exposing his well-built, muscular physique, he leaps into the water and swims over to Awkeff's side.
"Not too badly hurt, are you, Fahliil Fahdon?"
Edited by IchigoMontoya on Feb 10th 2019 at 2:13:48 AM
"... Yours? You mean you got one too?"
Callis tosses Trigo a Regen Capsule.
Awkeff flounders ashore. "I'm fine, Bron Fahdon!"
She gives Viserys a sheepish smile and a thumbs-up.
"Maybe this is why I'm a bad archer..."
Thanos' massive ship, the Sanctuary, descends next to the base of the light staircase that touches the Floating City. A giant holographic sign, just like the first one he had placed for the rally following Galeem's attack, illuminates the sky from high above.
PEOPLE OF THE ARENA.
CONVERGE HERE AND AVENGE.
At the Floating Islands, and on the platform atop Spiralblock Peak, these same signs appear. Holograms of Thanos materialize underneath them, their actions and speeches being transmitted in real-time from the Sanctuary back at the Floating City to match those of the real one.
"Yeah, this big hand guy dropped by and tossed it to my feet."
Trigo silently thanks Callis before Oca chucks a senzu bean at him. It bounces off his face as he catches it with telekinesis.
"It's not my fault you don't open your mouth when you talk."
"That might have choked me."
"Same here." Callis rubs the back of her head.
Then she turns south to see Thanos' Spiralblock sign. "Well then... duty calls, and I shall answer." She flies off, stopping at that staircase.
Spiralblock Peak Top Platform
Keeby and Callis meet atop the platform. They look to the Thanos hologram.
The Masked Man◊ and Picky◊, who had just met up with Porky◊ nearby, start to approach the Sanctuary. Porky himself, still close by, follows.
Marx◊ also happens to be nearby, and starts making his way over there too.
Plague Knight and Mona◊ are on the other side of the city, but manage to see the hologram from where they are, and as such begin to approach.
Naesala◊ sits down on top of a nearby building, content with observing from a distance. Selena, Odin and Laslow◊ are nearby too, though don't know that Naesala is near them, instead approaching the ship.
Pride◊ is close by as well, and heads over.
A mysterious figure is also watching from inside a building, making sure to remain hidden for the time being.
Bismark◊, who's at the bottom of said staircase, notices and recognizes the Sanctuary, and starts to approach.
Botar, who's all the way in New Los Angeles, manages to see the Sanctuary landing in the faraway Floating City, and teleports to it instantly.
The Great Light◊ and Des◊ had just met up with BE!Tobajas◊ again when they see the hologram nearby, and go investigate what's going on.
Topaz◊ is nearby as well, and halts for some reason when she notices the Great Light nearby. Noticing a hologram in the city as well, she starts floating over there instead.
Strangely, Deliderp◊ seems to be completely absent. In fact, despite it having been there during the initial gathering, it hasn't been seen since.
And lastly, Mara◊, who's down on Primordia, simply starts leaping towards the Floating City.

Chuckling, Viserys swims after Awkeff before climbing ashore.
"Unlike what the songs and legends might have you believe, Awkeff, not even Dovahkiin like us are perfect. If it's any consolation, however, your dive actually started off rather well, so you are improving; just like with archery practice."
At the Floating City, Thor◊ and the Maximoff twins◊ can be seen approaching the hologram of Thanos.
Edited by IchigoMontoya on Feb 10th 2019 at 2:40:00 AM
Awkeff chuckles lightly. "I was talking about not being able to hold my arms steady."
She looks over at Viserys' build as she dries herself off with a towel. "Speaking of archery, what effect do you suppose the arrows fired by Auriel's Bow might have if you plugged them directly into that monster Galeem's core? He is rather like the sun, so..."
