Rawrin stopped yelling and turned to where Henry was indicating. There in the bush was indeed, Pink, the Ice Princess' cat. Rawrin picked Pink up and stroked its fur. He resumed yelling at his friends in the sky. As he did so he was completely unaware of the black creature creeping up behind him and Henry. Then it sprang.
As quickly as the creature sprang Rawrin drew his sword and swung in a backwards arc all in one swift fluid movement. The creature's body rattled from the force of the blunt edge of the blade. It was not Rawrin's intention to kill it after all, he wanted to see who or what it was and question it if possible. He handed Pink to Henry and pulled some rope from his pack. He crouched and examined the creature before him. It was similar to Ny-Nan but pure black other than the gem on its forehead which was a cloudy purple color. Rawrin tied the creatures arms to its sides and then tied it to a nearby tree for good measure. Rawrin figured he may as well resume trying to get his friends' attention until the creature woke up, then he would ask some questions.

The Ice Princess, after a few minutes, awoke on a rocky outcrop overlooking the piece of forest she had been in. Wondering what on earth had happened, she began searching around herself for the reason as to how she had gotten there. Finding a phoenix feather was enough and Ice Princess soon relaxed; whatever had attacked her had gone, and Pheo had saved her. Thank the heavens.
As she reclined against the rock, however, she remembered Pink and the claw... she remembered the scratch to her arm and along her leg, and soon checked both, now only very light and small markings. *My crown!* she thought as she felt her hair, and paled. She frowned and sat up, pulling a book from her satchel; 'The Icy One's Guide to Symbolism'; she had taken it from the Ice King before she had left him.
She had reached the end of Chapter 4: 'Omens' and now entered Chapter 5: 'Colours'. She read on about how Orange was the ultimate symbol of panic, red was anger, green for tranquility and many more, ending with blue for love. She blushed suddenly and stood, putting away the book in the small satchel. "Well..." she said to herself "I guess I'm... very loving..."
Sighing again, Ice Princess began to walk down the slope into the forest, her leg still sore, and through the trees as the night somehow grew even darker, ripping her dress on some brambles as she did.
As she neared a clearing she squinted her eyes to see if she could make out any shapes. On the far side of the clearing were two figures standing there, one taller and cowled and the other wore a long robe of some kind. As she watched the taller figure suddenly swung around with a flash of steel in the remaining light and the sound of a cat's muffled cry emerged from a smaller figure nearby. Ice Princess gasped silently, covering her mouth *They got Ny-Nan! No! They... they can't!* she thought.
As she stood there, she heard yet another rustle; turning she couldn't make out what it was "Who's there?" she whispered.
"It's me... Hen... Henry, yes. Quick, come with me." the figure moved their hand towards her and she took it. It felt soft.
"Can I borrow your gloves Henry?" she whispered to him "I'm a bit cold."
"Gloves? Wha- oh... well, once we get away from here... Princess."
She smiled and was gladly led away as Rawrin tied up the cat she thought was Ny-Nan in the clearing nearby.

Ny-Nan heard what he thought to be the princess
"Oh no, they got Ny-Nan!", then, he heard another voice, claiming to be Henry...but wait...Henry was here! How could that be possible?
"Oh no, someone has the princess! I'm going after them!", he ran over to the direction he heard the noise, at Vampire speed, sense, and power to get him there, plus some cat agility and jumping for other reasons...
He found the princess, but didn't see anyone with her,"Where is 'Henry'?", asked Ny-Nan, quite surprised...
"Henry... Henry?" asked the girl, facing the other way. Ny-Nan looked on strangely, noticing her missing crown. "Who's Henry?" she asked then, turning to face him exceedingly fast. She had some kind of strange aura emanating from her and her eyes exhuded a red glow and had become vortexes of blackness as she gazed into Ny-Nan "I only see a soul... and flesh to devour!" Her hands suddenly grew talons as long as her arms and the aura surrounding her turned foul. Ny-Nan glanced at the ground then, behind the monstrous Princess, where a face similar to this: was scrawled, with some kind of liquid over it.
In the blackness he also saw a slight movement into the woods on the other side of the clearing, but before he could do anything, the Princess grabbed him with unnatural strength and slammed him against a tree. It was all he could do to stop her from tearing into him... the sound of tree-limbs breaking echoed in the night as she closed on him with her talons.
(listen to this while reading: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TrLXoW2JMQ )
"You...you DARE DO THIS TO A VAMPIRE? You don't know what you are dealing with!!!", he knew what he was doing, and though his mind said not to tear his love apart, his body began to thirst for blood...he became a black lion with giant teeth, no mane, red blood thirsty eyes, a small tail, and a monstrous tone and size of body...he had become his second stage of vampire-cat form...he outgrew the demon's claws, and growled angrily at her,"Would you rather see my THIRD form? MUAHAHAHA!", he was no longer Ny-Nan, he was D.O.O.M. spelled out for this demon possessing his crush. He was no longer aware of his actions as his eyes grew a blood thirst...skin crawling...dark red...
He sprung out at her full force waiting for an attack with a limb, to climb onto with all claws extended, and when the moment came, he took it, and tore the demon limb from limb...
Then...Ny-Nan woke from his monstrous state, as he transformed back to see Ice Princess," Oh...o...OH MY GOB!", he yelled, as he began crying at the sight of the Ice Princess. The demon was tore out of her, and she was alive...but something happened to her, that no one knew...whether it was good or bad in other's eyes, he had to hide her so no one would suspect that somehow Ny-Nan made her WAY more beautiful in his eyes, her Hair cut perfectly at least...making the rest pop out...
She was now a masterpiece, all because of Ny-Nan...
(wow...didn't expect that did you, did you think I would pull her literally limb from limb? THAT WAS THE DEMON SIDE! It wasn't truly her! My excuse, she didn't transform, but instead the aura transformed, and grew, into the demon, he destroyed the demon. Ny-Nan is also crying happy tears...)
holding Pink in his arms Henry kept an eye on the creature. it looked alot like Ny-nan but there was something a bit.... off, and it wasnt just the difference in colour. the creature twitched, then started shaking violently, henry jumped back ready to zap the thing if it attacked, but when he looked at where it used to be there was only a puddle of black ooze. the goop started to move twords him in a slail-like pace, henry blasted it with a bolt of arcane energy. the creature writhed and squirmed then went still, it was still alive but it wont be doing much of anything anytime soon.
Rawrin stopped yelling when he saw a figure resembling Ice Princess emerge from the clearing. "Ice Princess," he yelled, "where did you all go?" She didn't seem to hear him. He looked further down the course she was walking and saw Henry... but no, Henry was behind him. Rawrin looked around and saw Henry still standing watch over the creature. Something was wrong.
Rawrin bounded after Ice Princess but tripped over a log and hit his head on a tree stump. "Agh..." Rawrin said but shook himself and followed her again. She had disappeared further into the forest. He ran towards the direction she was going in to see a giant evil looking version of Ny-Nan ripping a blackened Ice Princess apart. "NO!" Rawrin yelled but suddenly the blackness seeped out of her body and she was normal again... actually more than normal, she was stunning. Then Ny-Nan returned to his original form and Rawrin was boggled.
"Well, you saw that...hehe...", Ny-Nan fell down inside, as hr realized what occurred, again. "A monster that went by the name Henry, attacked the Ice Princess, possessed her, smacked me through her, then I saved her by going insane, and attacking Henry. Apparently I cut her hair...and with less hair, the rest of her great features popped out...", Ny-Nan said shyly, as his gem turned blue thinking about the Ice Princess. Tears were still in his eyes, then he wiped them away, and the gem went back to normal, then turned to the Ice Princess, seeing she was awake,"Ice Princess, are you alright?"
henry somehow managed to climb up to the cliff that everyone was on.
"guys guys!" exclamed henry as he pulled himself onto the cliff with Pink on his head " i think ive figured it out, theyre shadow demons! theyre kinda like Anti-uses."
(OOC: im having delicious burgers and potato wedges dor dinner tonight and your Not! muahaha! )
Ice Princess felt herself force her consciousness back into her body; essence of the Nightoshpere still clogging her mind. She felt terrible, as though she had just awoken from a severely long period of sleep. She raised her hand to her face, looking at the lighter blue colour of her skin and sighed. Suddenly, however, she gasped as what happened came back to her; the creature had erupted into a huge burst of light as it stepped on something and began to change form repeatedly until part of it leapt onto her and the other part flew off into the forest.
After that she had blacked out, but she seemed to remember Ny-Nan and the creature speaking in muffled voices until it felt as though a glass sphere had been shattered around her and everything was clear again. She put her arm down again and looked on as Ny-Nan saw her awaken. He watched as bags formed under her eyes very quickly and she began to fall unconscious, a few scratches on her shoulder becoming revealed as she fell. She murmured "Thank you..." before she drifted away into sleep again.
She suddenly felt as though awake again, but now she was looking down at a much younger version of herself, with pink cheeks and silvery hair, playing in a park alone. She suddenly stopped and looked into the distance; a strange man was walking alone, confused. He eventually approached her and stopped; he had blue skin and long white hair with a beard. He wore a crown atop his head and had claw-like appendages instead of hands. He eyed her before saying "You'll do." and grabbing her, time seemed to skip forward until she came to stop inside a huge icy tower, where a 12 year old her was sitting, with the strange man nearby, as an enormous mushroom cloud rose in the distance.
Time skipped again until she saw the man defrosting her from a wall "Sorry I left you so long my dear Azura... I forgot you were in her for a while. Time skipped and she was walking through forests, confused about where she was. She now wore a crown on her head and was about 15. She walked and walked until she faded from sight and the world became black. It was then that Ice Princess awoke, sitting up quickly and slamming her head against Ny-Nan's, "What the... what was that?!" she yelled in alarm, looking around her; but it seemed to have just been a dream and the cuts on her arm seemed to have vanished, *Probably Pheo* she thought.

He looked at her with strange eyes,"Welcome back, that second time...I felt you were gone...", he said, with a blue gem, and then he smiled, and the gem flashed away immediately,"Are you alright?", Ny-Nan asked in the same tone as the first time.
"I think I'm alright now... I was in a bit of trouble back there..." she tried a smile. She managed to rise to her feet and stood there uneasily, "I guess we found eachother again..." she said, looking around at Pheo, Henry, Ny-Nan and Rawrin. "What happened back there? I still don't... I'm... what were those things?!"
"Henry said it, they were Shadow Demons. Apparently, they are meant to look like us, so they can take our powers, or use their powers again others. Like the one that looked like me slightly, except bigger, he must have my powers, because the looks wouldn't get him anywhere close to us, you guys would know he wasn't me. But the Henry demon, until it went crazy, looked like Henry, sounded slightly like him, but he used Ice Princess by getting her to believe he was Henry, then possessing her...", Ny-Nan looked heroic, in an EPIC stance,"...AND I BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THAT DEMON!", and then jumps up in excitement.
"If you guys have had a demon impersonate you....then where is mine?" Just as he finished something swooped down and lit up the area around them.
"Think we found him, I'll lead him away and take care of him." Pheo flew up and tryed to claw the beast but it went higher as he was going to strike. Pheo dodged just in time to get out of the way of the strike. At the same time he managed a lucky strike that got the shadow Pheo on the cranium, piercing it and and at the moment he hit the ground he tunred to ashes, "Blow them away so he can't come back, NOW!!!!"
Ny-Nan looked at Pheo, then realized...'This is too much to blow...maybe I can move it...', suddenly the Shadow Pheo came back, and pulled the same trick as Shadow Henry...
Ny-Nan...looked like he was dead...
Then, a bright light appeared, on Ny-Nan, it turned to black, and in the light's place, was a black beast with flashing eyes with the sadness of blue and anger of red. It was a horrifying sight. "YOU DARE DO THAT TO ME!!!", the beast yelled out loud,"I AM THE MIGHTY BEAST BEHIND NY-NAN'S POWER! I AM THE HERO OF VAMPIRES! I AM THE OPPOSITE OF GOD! I AM HECK, THE GOD OF DESTRUCTION AND CHAOS!", suddenly, the trees around them flew out of place, though red aura's formed around the team, making them angry, but keeping them in place so they wouldn't go flying from all the power of the wind. He put a blue aura around Shadow Pheo, and made him incredibly sad, in fact, it was bursting out crying!
The darkest form of Ny-Nan is yet to come, but with all this power...how can he control it? He can't, and that's exactly what's happening...
The dark Pheo extinguished itself from it's own tears, as he tried to heal itself as well, it went into an endless cycle, making the dark Pheonix feel the pain forever...
Ny-Nan came back, laying down on the ground, leaving his god-like state...he again, looked dead...but instead, he was asleep.
(I know, he's overpowered, but those only occur when he gets hit hard enough to get knocked out, the first transformation is only in extreme danger of dying, and the final form is when he gets knocked into a death zone, where most beings would die. Vampires can't die, and really...I find this fitting, remember Marceline? She had multiple vampire forms, her normal form, her bat form, her monstrous form, and then every scary face she makes, you could call those transformations also :3 Well...yeah...if you don't get it then )
