The end is the beginning

The four horsemen continued their directionless journey, where One and Two were primed to become the ultimate villain, on the other side, the dark side to be precise, Three and Four were enjoying their lives as a saviour of the future. Things were looking bleak. A dark future awaited them. Potato, was mysteriously missing from the action, but where was it? What was it doing? What illness or powers did he inherit now? The four horsemen were curious. Many more questions puzzled the quartet, but they chose to ignore them.

Potato was, however busy in outer space. There was a noticeable shift in attitudes, it could be seen from a distance, that something was disturbing the force. Potato was slowly turning into goop. The power was becoming too much to handle for Potato, the voices beyond were scared, if potato saw the light, he would no longer be a useful asset to them to spread their reign of chaos. The horsemen had seen what the future held for them, but they had a task at hand. And so they ventured deep into Potato’s lair.

Potato was crumbling under his own power, the horsemen were ready to charge and exterminate the menace, and The Voices Beyond were getting their celestial weapons primed. A battle was on the cards, everybody was waiting for the first crack. The Quartet drew first blood, disrupting the power supply to Potato, but Potato retaliated, by pulling all the land mass around him like a fortress. The battle between the Horsemen and Potato continued like two pawns in a chess match. The Voices Beyond had enough, and brought down the celestial blade, thrusting it into the ground, decimating everything in between. Potato was dead. The four Horsemen were dead. The Voices Beyond, took out the dead carcasses and cast it into a frying pan to cook their dinner, leaving a giant hole in the place where Potato once flourished.

The body of Potato was no more, but his soul lived forever. The Voices Beyond realised the importance of Potato, and thus started cultivating Potato farms for feeding the humans and advancing them into the next age. The four horsemen were sent back to their abodes, to await another apocalypse. The Voices Beyond continued their quest of power by creating religion and faith and tiny kingdoms of pride, lust, sloth, gluttony, wrath, envy and greed. Life carried on aimlessly into the next age, awaiting new adventures.

Three and Four shut the door to the dark side.

On the other side, where One and Two were busy discovering the mysteries of the Potato’s Dream. Three and four were venturing further to the dark side, entering a black hole full of screams and shouts of the lost souls. Things were looking dead, Three and Four were elated, they found death to be the prominent species around. But something was amiss, death was present, but there were no souls to devour or transport to heaven or hell.

Upon further exploration, things started going doozy, the walls began merging into a singular unit, like colours of the rainbow blending into white. Still, on this strange land, everything was merging into black. There was a faint glow coming from nearby. Three and Four were curious, who could challenge their realm of madness. The colours which never ran started running away into the giant hole of nothingness.

Reaching closer, they could see a portal from which the light was coming, at the end stood a mysterious organism, waving its hand as if signalling somebody. Three and Four thought that it was for them and so they jumped right into the portal. On the other side, things were calm. People were celebrating the triumphant victory that the duo achieved, there was great fanfare. Because Three and Four jumped into the portal, they created a paradox.

They were witnessing a celebration of a war that did not happen, yet there was complete evidence suggesting otherwise. And so, after looking at this alternate reality, the duo jumped back to their own reality. Now armed with the knowledge that victory will be theirs, they planned to do something nasty along the way.

Enter the Dark Side of the Moon (Episode 6.1)

One and Two on the dark side of the moon

In the Lunar and Earthern mass, the Dark side of the Moon had cast its eclipsing shadow. One and Two travelled the lands far and between to meet up with someone who had information on how to defeat Potato. Along the way, they discussed life and death, the creation and the destruction, and who could be the ultimate conqueror of the realms.

As they were walking, they discovered that the realm around them started melting. everything looked like a solid ooze pouring out of the black void. It all seemed like they were travelling in an abstract painting. Time itself became a figment of imagination. Standing in front of them stood a figure, shrouded in darkness with some fog emanating from underneath. One and Two became more and more cautious as they approached the figure.

The figure spoke, ” thou shall not pass, for thou seek destruction”. She waved her hand, into the air, conjuring a portal in thin air and asked the duo to look inside. They looked at a vision of the future, a future where Potato was the saviour of all, and One and Two were the big baddies. Everybody who survived hated the horsemen and was on a mission to kill them all because of the misdeeds that they did.

The Hooded figure again spoke, “turn away, turn away and go to the place you came from, back to the deepest corner of your minds, the darkest fears, embrace them, for the chaos is just beginning to ramp up”. One and Two stayed undeterred by the threats and ignored the warning and carried on….
