*Through a very abandoned, and dark facility walks a pair of figures. One is a tall, imperious woman in a black leather trenchcoat and matching catsuit, with short, straight black hair with bangs that cover her eyes, and black-feathered wings out her back that glint red in the light.*
*Behind her, and kept close by a dog leash latched onto a collar around his neck, follows a boy of about 18 or so, with dark purple hair pulled back in a ponytail, and bangs that also completely cover his eyes. His are much shaggier, however. Clothing-wise, he's wearing the aforementioned dog collar, Yagami Iori pants... and nothing else. Zippo, nada, zilch.*
*The woman's expression is a smirk. The boy's expression is completely blank.*
Synthesis: Well, Omocha-kun... we're almost there.
Synthesis: To think that Snow even scared off the great Dot Warner... *chuckles* I wonder how bad it could be that it would make her abandon her workings here so quickly, hm?
Synthesis: *L* Hidoi desu ne, Omocha-kun.
*They stop, having reached their destination... a lone cylindrical tank 'o goo with a single man in it. The pair approached from the back, so pretty much all we can see is his long, black hair hanging loose in the goo, and the backs of his legs.*
Synthesis: So this is the Demiurge's son, eh? Cute butt.
Synthesis: Mmmm. How was it that he died, again?
Tatchi: ...Velvet tried to betray the Ordinal to Dot Warner, and was caught. The Ordinal gave him a choice between killing himself and letting his fiancee die, and he chose to kill himself instead.
Synthesis: *nods* Sounds about right. *pause* Baka na.
Synthesis: Ahh, but let's see what you look like in front, Velvet-chan. Surely that's more interesting...
*She circles the tank slowly, her smirk growing wider as her gaze obviously rises upward, obviously pleased at what she sees.*
Synthesis: Yes, yes... you will do very nicel-- *freezes*
*Her smirk immediately disappears, and her jaw drops.*
Synthesis: *staring at his face* ...m-masaka..?
*She reaches forward to touch the glass, without seeming to even realize that she's doing so.*
Synthesis: It... it can't be...
*A moment. And then.... she falls screaming and pounding on the glass.*
Synthesis: OMOCHA-KUN! OMOCHA-KUN, BREAK IT!!
*Omocha-Tatchi obediently jumps up and delivers a sharp, single-spin kick to the tank, shattering all of the glass in the blink of an eye. Goo rushes out in a single gush, and the body falls forward towards Synthesis. She catches him just before he could reach the new, jagged edges at the bottom rim of the tank.*
*Dragging him out, she lies him down on the floor and begins to pound his chest rather ineffectually.*
*She's actually crying as she does so. Crying, pounding on his chest, and babbling rather incoherantly...*
*And suddenly, a white-haired woman with yellow eyes is there, standing near Omocha-Tatchi. He starts a little with surprise.*
Woman: That's not going to do anything, you know.
Synthesis: *still pounding and crying*
Woman: I can bring him back for you. For a price.
*Synthesis stops pounding.*
Woman: My first request is that you stop falsely using the name of Miyu when you are not a Midori. Can you do that?
*She nods a few hundred times, still crying.*
Woman: My second request that you give me the soul of Rokubungi Tatchi.
*Synthesis sobs a bit, but nods. She puts her hands together, and opens them, revealing a glowing ball of light about the size of a large marble.*
Woman: *taking the ball with her right hand* All right, then.
*She walks over to Velvet's corpse, kneels on the side opposite from Synthesis, and briefly touches her left hand to his chest.*
Velvet: *immediately begins to sputter and cough up goo.*
Synthesis: AAAAIIIII!! *hastily props him up and slaps him on the back*
Woman: *smirk* Sou desu. *walks over to Omocha-Tatchi* And for you, my brother.
*She carefully opens his mouth, slides in the glowing ball, and shoves his jaw shut again. Almost immediately upon her doing so, his hands fly up and snap the collar and dog leash off like they were made of paper.*
Tatchi: Temee... *violently tosses collar and leash aside and begins to approach Synthesis*
Woman: *blocks him with one arm* Patience, brother. Another day will come for that.
*He sharply turns his head, apparently glaring at the woman. She does not flinch. After a while of glaring, he simply steps back and vanishes in a flash of green.*
Woman: Sou... he has already awakened. *smirks* Then my work here is finished.
*She steps back and also vanishes in a flash of green, just as Velvet stops sputtering and his eyes begin to open.*
Velvet: *squinting* Wh-what...
Synthesis: *glomping him* ONIICHAN!
Velvet: *eyes now VERY wide* ...o..nii-chan..?
