On the previous chapter of the fourth Elements of Power Christmas Special, yet another Christmas gathering was being held over at Cream and Vanilla’s house. Many people showed up to attend, including, but not limited to, Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, the Chaotix team, and many others. Unlike prior times, nothing out of the ordinary was happening at the house. However, the same could not be said for Julia Prowess’s Astral Ruins workshop in the Lunar Dimension.
Apparently, Julia had gotten attacked and captured by an unknown assailant prior to the arrival of the Ringstar Island guardian, Luna the Porchidna and the Parallel Goddesses. Additionally, this person was able to successfully fool the others by using a shapeshifting device of some sort in order to disguise his or herself as Julia. Shortly before they left, “Julia” convinced Frostina to the leave the Snow Element Gem behind, reminding her that Cryos would emerge once again if it were to come in contact with the snow. Heeding “Julia’s” advice, Frostina left the gem accordingly and left with Luna and her sisters to attend the party.
The questions remain… Who is this mysterious individual, and what are his or her intentions? Will anyone be able to get there in time to stop this person and rescue the real Julia from captivity? Find out as the saga continues on the fourth Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power Christmas Special!
Meanwhile, on the way to Vanilla’s house…
Bean: So far, so good! Thanks to that riot, breaking out of prison this time around was like taking candy from a baby!
Bean: Yeah, but still… We should definitely prepare for them just in case, don’t you think?
Nack: Exactly whadda ya have in mind?
Bean: First, let’s get out of these stupid prison clothes. *Takes his off and tosses it*
Nack: Good idea. ‘Dese were makin’ me all itchy ‘n’ whatnot. *Removes his and tosses it, as well*
Bean: Now, about the plan… I’m thinking we should-… Wait, someone’s coming!
*They hide as Luna and the Parallel Goddesses walk by*
Electra: So, there was some dream regarding Cryos you were going to tell us about?
Frostina: Yeah. For the past year, ever since that incident, Tikal’s words about Cryos possibly not being as bad as he initially seemed have been echoing in my mind. Almost every night before going to bed, I’ve been coming across this mysterious, lavender-colored ball of light, which has been showing me these visions regarding Cryos’ past. From what I’ve been able to gather so far, there was this porcupine girl by the name of Artemis and-
Luna: Did you say “Artemis”…?
Frostina: I’ll take it you’ve heard of her at some point?
Luna: Yes, she’s an ancestor of mine! Well, my ancestral aunt, that is.
Frostina: Ah, I see, “icy”! As I was about to say, she and Cryos were very close, and were possibly in love. Then, one day, a tragedy befell the two of them; a tragedy that resulted in Artemis getting killed. It must have been her death that set Cryos off and turned him into the monster he became before his sealing…
Tornada: That’s such a sad story… I feel really bad for them…
Woodra: So do I, I tell you no lie…
Goldra: Pffft. Talk about melodramatic.
Frostina: Another strange thing is, even though Volcana, Oceana, and I have lost some of our memory from being sealed up for so long, I still feel as if I also happen to know that Artemis person from somewhere…
Volcana: Yeah, that name does sound kind of familiar, now that you mention it…
Oceana: Same here, but other than the name, nothing else is ringing a bell with me.
Electra: Ah, I’m sure we’ll learn the meaning of that dream soon enough. But for now, I’ve gotta go. After all, Sonic is just dying to see me right now, and I can’t just keep him waiting now, can I? I’ll meet you all there! *Takes off at lightning speed*
Tornada: Wait a minute… Did she say Sonic’s dying!? What happened to him!? Is he okay!?
Goldra: … *Facepalm*
Tornada: …What? Was it something I said?
Stonia: No, nothing’s wrong with the guy, Tornada. That’s just a figure of speech.
Tornada: Oh! Boy, do I feel stupid!
Goldra: …Only just now?
Tornada: What’s that supposed to mean!?
Woodra: Hey, hey! Settle down, okay?
Frostina: Woodra’s right… Let’s just focus on getting to the party, alright?
Stonia: *Notices the prison clothes* Huh? I wonder who those belong to?
Goldra: Oh, I think I have a few creative ideas… *Looks toward the bushes with her x-ray vision*
Bean: Uh oh… I think we’ve been spotted…
Nack: AH, CRAAAAAAP! Let’s bus’ outta ‘dis joint before ‘dey call ‘da cops!
*They run off*
Tornada: Should we go after them?
Goldra: You could if you want, but dealing with those two weaklings would be a complete and utter waste of my time. Playing the hero just isn’t my style. Plus, I’m sure the police will get them again eventually.
Scorch: Yep. Different time, same fight, same outcome…
Storm: Honestly, Three-Point Zero… At this point, why do you even bother trying?
Metal Sonic 3.0: As I’ve stated on numerous occasions, I’ve been created with a destiny… To become the strongest among all robots! Time and time again, this lowly piece of obsolete filth has been an obstacle that’s stood in my way, preventing me from achieving that goal with all his lucky victories! Well, no more! Once and for all, I intend to relieve myself of such humiliation and prove that I, without a shadow of a doubt, am the pinnacle of technological advancements!
Storm: …Good grief.
Syndra: (Here, I thought Rocco sounded bad, but…wow.)
Slush: Everytime you open your “mouth” to speak, you just continue to sound more and more ridiculous.
Mecha Amy: That’s for sure!
Squash: I do agree with him on one thing, though. It’s the strongest that always prevails!
Syndra: (Why am I not surprised?)
Scorch: Sooner or later, Dr. Robotnik and that Julia kid are probably going to get tired of repairing you all the time…
Metal Sonic 3.0: I’m not the one who’s going to be needing repairs this time around. It is I who will emerge victorious!
Metal Sonic: Are you finished babbling yet?
Metal Sonic 3.0: You’re that eager to die, are you? Who am I to disappoint?
*They resume the fight*
Rouge: …Should we even bother watching this anymore? I mean, it’s not as if we don’t already know what the outcome’s gonna be.
Shadow: I was about to say the same thing. Come on, let’s get-…
Electra: *Zooms pass everybody*
Meanwhile over at Vanilla’s house…
*The doorbell rings*
Vanilla: Hmm? I wonder who it could be this time?
Charmy: Hee hee, “who it could bee this time”. *Snickers*
Heavy: …Somebody shoot me, please.
Blaze: Hello. It’s nice to see you.
Vanilla: Why, hello there! How’ve you been?
Silver: Pretty good.
Marine: Yep, rippa as always!
Vanilla: Please, come right on in.
Electra: *Zooms by again* Excuse me, coming through!
Sonic: (Oh, geez… Where’d she come from!?) *Starts sneaking away, and then jets off to another room*
Electra: *Catches a glimpse of him from the corner of her eye shortly before he leaves, and then looks toward Vanilla, Silver, Blaze, and Marine* Hello, nice to see you guys. Ta-ta! *Follows Sonic into the other room*
A little while later…
Electra: Why, hello there, stud. Long time no see. *Winks*
Sonic: E-Electra… *Starts to back away* H-How’ve you been?
Electra: Well, let’s just say that I’ve had my share of problems over the months, but I’m doing okay… *Walks toward him, switching to a more flirty tone of voice* …Especially now that I’m around you.
Sonic: *Backs all the way into the wall*
Electra: *Giggles* You are so cute when you play hard to get…
Sonic: U-Uh, t-thanks…?
Amy: *Tosses her hammer and hits Electra in the back of the head*
Electra: Ouch! *Holds her head, turns around, and glares* You…
Amy: How many times do we have to tell you, you little hussy!? You stay away from him!
Tiara: That’s right! You want him? Well, you’ll have to get through us first!
Electra: Oh, that’s fine by me, because the two of you have officially gotten on my last nerve… *An electrical aura appears around her as her hair spikes up, complete with her eyes turning completely white*
Tiara: You want some!? Well, come and get it!
Electra: With pleasure.
Sonic: *Cowers under a table*
Vanilla: *From the other room* Dinner’s ready!
Electra: *Changes back to normal* You two got lucky this time. Really lucky. *Looks toward Sonic*
Electra: We’ll continue this later, okay, handsome? *Blows a kiss to him and walks out of the room*
*Amy and Tiara do the same*
Meanwhile, at Julia’s Astral Ruins Workshop in the Lunar Dimension…
Nega Robotnik: *Through the communicator* What’s that you’re saying? Not only have you gotten ahold of the Snow Element Gem, but you also have the Lunar Emeralds and the Celestial Emerald!?
???: You got it, Doc.
Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee hee! Excellent work!
???: I’ll be bringin’ everything back in a few.
*The sound of a booster engine is heard*
???: Sounds like someone’s comin’! Ah, bummer! *Quickly breaks contact, puts away the communicator, and morphs back into Julia* (Good thing that closet’s soundproof… Sucks for the tiger kid, though! Heh heh!)
*Metal Sonic 3.0 enters the workshop, heavily damaged*
“Julia”: Oh, my gosh! Three-Point Zero! What happened to you!?
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Holds his arm* Metal Sonic… *Czzzzzzt!* That piece of outdated trash won another lucky victory, that’s what! *Czzzzzzt!* (Wait a minute… Since when did she start referring to me as “Three-Point Zero” all of a sudden?)
“Julia”: I guess I might as well get started on your repairs. *Gets behind 3.0 and opens up the back of him* (Heh, the only “repairs” I’m gonna be doin’ is havin’ you shut off, ya piece o’ junk…) *Gets ready to flip the On/Off switch*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Looks to the side and takes notice of what’s in the closet* …! *Stands up and backs away*
“Julia”: Is something the matter?
Metal Sonic 3.0: …Okay, who are you? *Czzzzzzt!*
“Julia”: Huh? What do you mean?
Metal Sonic 3.0: Reveal your true self! *Eye lasers “her”*
“Julia”: Uhhhhhhh! *A poof of smoke appears around “her” as “she” changes back to normal*
*When the smoke clears, the imposter was revealed as a green and black Sonic look-alike with shades and a red scarf (similar to the brown one Sonic wears in Boom)*
Metal Sonic 3.0: Just as I suspected… *Czzzzzt!* You didn’t truly believe you could deceive me, did you?
???: Aww! Uncool, man! Totally uncool! That was a perfect disguise! How’d ya know I wasn’t the real one?
Metal Sonic 3.0: First of all, “perfect disguise”? Don’t make me laugh. Secondly, did you truly think that a highly advanced robot, such as myself, wouldn’t be equipped with something as simple as x-ray vision? By the way, who are you? Judging by your repulsive color scheme, might I presume you’re the “Green Hedgehog Project”?
???: You got it, bro. The name’s Ashura, Master of Disguise.
Metal Sonic 3.0: I don’t know what your intentions are, exactly… *Walks over to the closet, opens it, and unties Julia* …But consider this the point where they come to an end!
Ashura: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Seriously, dude? If you couldn’t even beat a “piece of outdated trash” like Metal Sonic, then what makes ya think you’d stand a chance against me?
Metal Sonic 3.0: He got lucky! I’m far superior to that obsolete scum in virtually every way! As for you, I’ll easily crush you underneath my heel, like the pathetic vermin you are!
Ashura: Whatever, bro. Now, if ya’d excuse me, I’ll be helpin’ myself to this. *Picks up the Snow Element Gem, walks over to Julia’s machine, and activates a portal* Heh heh heh! Later, losers!
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Turns on his jet booster*
Julia: Zero, wait! You’re still hurt! You need to-
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Flies toward Ashura and tackles him through the portal*
Julia: …Be repaired.
*The portal closes*
At last, Julia’s impersonator has been exposed! Having still retained injuries from his battle against the original Metal Sonic, will 3.0 have what it takes to put a stop to whatever scheme Ashura’s conjured up? Exactly what are he and Dr. Nega up to this time around? Find out as the saga continues in the third Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power Christmas Special!
