Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 6: Birth
Tania Cyclos was a bushy-haired girl in her mid-twenties, a member of the North Tower; she stood by the door to her classroom as the students filed in. She closed the door as soon as the last student was in, and then turned to the class.
"Hello all!! My name, as specified by the obvious plaque on my desk, is Tania Cyclos! I will not accept being called anything BUT Tania. No 'Ms' or 'Miss' Cyclos! We're all friends here!"
She twirled her hand in the air, a mass of chair appeared in an orderly pile in the middle of the room.
"I would like each of you to take a seat and sit with your squad! I'd like to get into the material before tomorrow, so hurry up!"
Everyone scrambled to get a chair and find their squads, bustling around in a mess of people and chairs. Once everyone was seated, Tania began class.
"Special Education is probably one of the most useful classes you'll be taking this year at Gaia. Throughout this year, I'll be teaching you all various Titan techniques that yo
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 5: Opening
Alex, Rane, and Noah sat in the North common room, quietly thumbing through volume after volume of the Gaia yearbooks.
"There's got to be something in one of these books to give us a clue about the Gaunt and Black family feud." Alex absent-mindedly said, "I mean, he's GOT to have a reason!"
A few short seconds later, Rane shouted, attracting the unwanted attention of some North students.
"I found it!!" She said in a hushed tone.
She pointed Alex and Noah to a picture of Alex's father with a large gold trophy.
"Nicholas Black, third year, became Rumble champion after narrowly defeating Zira Gaunt, also third year. Their friendship was stretched to a breaking point the farther they got into the competition."
"So Mordred is just trying to carry on a rivalry that our fathers' once had? Well, understandable I guess "
Suddenly, a paper airplane flew through the air, hitting Alex in the head. Confused, he opened it, finding a quickly scribbled note on it:
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 4: Ignition
Alex awoke from his sleep, leaping out of bed. Just seconds earlier, a loud popping sound went off next to his ear. He looked around the room, frightened like a jackrabbit. He found Brennan standing next to his bed with a popped paper bag.
"Really? Did you HAVE to do that??" He asked, still drowsy.
"Heck yeah! You have to get up. There are a couple students in our common room, an East and a West how they got in, I have no clue."
"Was it a guy and a girl?" Alex asked, now intrigued.
Of course Noah must have messed with the security system to let himself and Rane in. Alex thought to himself.
"Yeah, ok. Tell them I'll be down in a minute."
Alex began to pull on a pair of jeans, but, Brennan stopped him.
"You can't wear that dude." He told Alex, "You need to put your uniform on now!"
Sitting on the edge of Alex's bed was a pile of folded clothes. He was given a pair of black slacks, black shoes, a white button down shirt, and a royal blue
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 3: Beginning
The night at the Mockridge residence went by very slowly. Alex, Noah, and Rane stayed up almost all night; watching movies, making last minute checks on their luggage, and talking until the wee hours of the morning. They eventually fell asleep, the night almost over...
... Alex opened his eyes to the familiar landscape of white sands and dark seas. He was alone once more, the waves lapping the wet beaches.
Well, I'm here again.
What are you doing here?! A cool, calm, but kind voice asked him.
Alex turned around to find himself face-to-face with the girl from before. Her features were much more visible than before. Her brown hair fell in two straight curtains on either side of his head. Two pale green eyes sparkled up at him; her expression was bland, almost lifeless.
What are you doing here?? She asked again, more sternly this time.
Well...truthfully, I don't know, I thought I was dreaming.
Her expression changed. The girl covered her mouth with her hands, a look of shock i
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 2: Wake Up
Alex awoke the next day to the sound of an enraged Mrs. Davies, an awakening he did not want to deal with.
"Alexander Derek Black!! Get down here this instant!! You were supposed to be up two hours ago!!"
He leapt from his bed, narrowly missing the same rogue skateboard from the day before. Alex flew down the stairs, stopping abruptly in front of his foster mother.
"Alex! What are you doing?! Wash up before going into the kitchen " She pointed him to the nearby bathroom, "oh, and, we need you in the kitchen soon." Her mood had become quiet and saddened.
He looked at her, concerned, and then turned quietly to wash up. He washed his face and hands, dried them, and then walked quickly back into the kitchen to find his foster parents, Noah, and Rane all quietly awaiting his arrival.
His foster father, Red Davies, was a quiet man. His weary gray eyes were even quieter today than ever. He had thinning gray hair which was in tattered messes on his head.
Both Red and Maureen k
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 1: Inception
Alex ran as fast as he could, trying his hardest to put as much distance between himself and his pursuers. What had he done to deserve this? Sure, he may have called their leader a fathead, but was this really a worthy punishment for that? Alex was a normal seventeen year old kid, just finishing high school, and now, about to get killed by an angry gang of meatheads. Behind him, Alex could hear the irate voices of the gang, the loud pattering of their heavy feet soon followed. Alex threw himself up against a dumpster, pressing himself into the darkness of it as best he could to cloak his presence. He laughed quietly to himself as he watched the gangs charge past him, oblivious to his presence. Once they were well out of view, Alex pulled himself from his hiding spot and raced in the opposite direction.
Alex had hit something. Blocking his escape route was the gang leader, a thick wall of impassable muscle.
"Thought ya' could get away did'cha?" He spat as he pulled A
