Both Bowser and Ganondorf made their way towards the portal leading out of the timezone of Hyrule they were in to participate in the Super Smash Bros Tournament; however in the meantime Beldam, Vivian, and Doopliss were now with the Subspace Bombs, wondering how to get to the Desert.
"I wish that man would've told us before we left how to get to the Desert, well no use standing here, let's get out of this castle and find someone to tell us how to get to the desert." Beldam said as she and Marilyn both took Doopliss and his underground to get out of the Castle. Minutes later the trio made their way towards out of the castle and into the Castle Town; as they emerged from the ground to see the town bustling with townsfolk, which disgusted Bedlam. "There's so many people here, looking all happy and everything, but's weird that they're happy even though their Castle has been taken over, anyways I think we should disguise ourselves so we don't draw any attention, after we do we can then find someone who will take us to the Desert." Beldam said as she looked around for something she could use to disguise her and Marilyn, as Doopliss took the form of a nearby Castle Guard. Beldam then took out a hooded cloak and placed it on as now she approached Doopliss.
"Lady Beldam, I have an idea, I'll talk to you to make a scene and we can get the attention of one of these guards, and maybe they can give us a ride to the Desert."
" All right then, let's see here! But Sir you half to give me a ride back to the Desert, I want to set up shop there and make a business there; don't you think the Desert needs some business." Beldam said as loud as she could, as she caught the attention of one of the guards who approached Beldam and Doopliss in Disguise.
"Is there a problem here?" asked the Soldier looking at the hooded figure.
"I need a ride to the desert, but this guard said he doesn't know how to get there, can you help me sir?" Beldam asked while disguised.
"Soldier, I think you should know by now to ride a Horse; if anything, the only way to the desert is by taking a ride in Lake Hylia's cannon Ride; if you want I can give you a ride to Lake Hylia, since it's close.
"Fine, i'll go there then, but this Soldier needs a ride too."
"For what reason?" the Soldier ask
"Well I promised we could open Shop together in the Desert, and prehaps, we could find a way to make it possible to travel to the Desert." Beldam said as the Soldier nodded and gave in.
"I'll go set up a Carriage to take you to the Desert, but we need to be careful there are Monsters running rampant all over Hyrule."
"Thank you, we'll wait here." Beldam said as they waited for several minutes, as the Soldiers set up the Horse and Carriage to take them to Lake Hylia.
"Your ride is ready, let's go." The Soldier said as Bedlam, Marilyn also in disguise, and Doopliss all got on the Carriage as the Soldier got on the horse, to pull the Carriage towards Lake Hylia. As the Horse and Carriage traveled throughout the Lanaryu Province of Hyrule, several Boars with Bokoblins riding them began to attack the Carriage. "Look out, several enemies are attacking this carriage we must defend ourselves." The Soldier said as he took out a sword to fight of the Bokoblin as did Doopliss to make sure these creatures don't interfere with there scheme. Beldam and Marilyn began using their magic while still in disguise to attack the Bokoblins; as they managed to fend off the attackers, the guard somehow saw the magic used by the disguised Shadow Sirens and approached them. "You two, what are you and how do you know Magic, please tell us who you are." Referring to himself and Doopliss in disguise, the Soldier wanted answers but for some reason the Soldier felt the hair on his back stand up, as he has an unnerving feeling about them.
"It doesn't matter who we are just take us to the desert or lake already, NOW!" said Beldam which started to make the guard angry.
"I am a Hylian Soldier set to protect this land of Hyrule, and I am not too sure if I can trust you, now reveal to me who you are." Demanded the guard but a voice that sounded very close was heard behind the guard.
"You heard the lady, it doesn't matter who she is, because she is just like me." The Guard turned around to see the figure of a tall, cloaked figure wearing a strange silver mask, as the Guard looked at him, in fear.
"Z....Z...Zant!" The guard said as he turned around to the other Guard and the cloaked Shadow Sirens as the three of them removed their disguises and revealed their true identities.
"Zant, so we finally meet, I wanted to get to the Desert to enter your realm, but your Master Ganondorf left with my ally Bowser to compete in some Tournament, and forgot to give me any specific details."
"So you're working for that traitor Ganondorf, I should have arrested you and sent you straight to Arbiter's Grounds myself, if I had known." the Guard said as he took his Weapon out and noticed the other Guard missing but Doopliss the Doppleghost appearing, and approached him. "What happened to the felow Soldier that was here.
"Don't you see, I was him." Dooplisss said turning back into the Soldier and then back to his normal self.
"You already know too much Hylian, now Die." Zant said as he held out his hand and a ball of dark energy appeared and hit the Guard knocking him out as Beldam took her hand out and show a beam of Ice as the Soldier, and Marilyn fished him off with a lightning attack, killing the Guard as the Shadow Sirens came Face to Face with Zant. "You are the Shadow Sirens, it was destiny that we would meet, I felt your presence the moment you cam here, trust me, we both have the same links to the higher power."
"Has my Queen been calling out to you?" Beldam said, wondering if the Shadow Queen somehow knew Zant.
"No not your Queen, my King, the true ruler of the Twilight Realm, Majora." Zant said as Beldam didn't know a thing about this Majora.
"Who is this Majora, and why is he; Your King?" Beldam asked as Zant took a moment and began to speak.
"Long ago, Master Majora was once a being who ruled the Twilight Realm, as the true Twilight King, he sought out ways to try to capture the very thing that is bound to the Goddesses, the Triforce in hopes of looking to establish total control over all of the World. Majora looked to get his followers to wear cloaks similar to mine by calling them Garos, and their mission was to build a Large Tower to reach the Heavens, sneak up on the Goddesses, and obtain the Triforce before Demise could so we could use it for our own purpose. however the Goddesses must have figured out our plan, so some warrior known as the Fierce Deity descended to challenge Majora and a bloody battle waged on for three days, until a ray of light, hit the blood stained emblem outside the tower, which caused the tower to flip upside down, and trapped them in a desert. Majora who had been wounded along with the Deity could not go on fighting anymore, so he used his power to bring the Moon down to finish off the Deity and everyone else in his way in order to obtain the power he sought out to gain. Until a strange Imp appeared and played some song, as the Four Giants stopped the Moon from falling; which angered my King even further as he looked to use one final attack to finish of the Deity as the Deity also attacked Majora as well leaving both of them injured as the same Imp played a song which turned them both into Masks. The Termanians had taken Majora's Mask and tossed it deep below the Stone Tower in a Desert where they had dumped the very Warriors who fought along side Majora, where as they took the Fierce Deity Mask and sent it to the Heavens as if it were an Angel treating Majora's Mask as if it were a Devil. The Followers of Majora, discovered Majora's Mask and began performing some Hexing Ritual hoping to revive him so they may seek revenge on the Goddesses and the Termenians for their deeds; but the hexing instead managed to revive Majora's soul in it's own Mask creating a curse to anybody who tries to wear it. Sometime soon after Majora and his followers found a way back into the Twilight Realm with Majora still as their King but inthe form of a mask decided to create a new plan to obtain the Triforce, by invading Hyrule and causing a war, great enough to turn all of the races of Hyrule against eachother , so Majora's Henchmen, My Ancestors to obtain the Triforce and destroy the Goddesses and consume the light of their world; but Majora could not be seen in Hyrule because it would raise suspicions; so Majora created a Mask resembling his own and allowed for his followers to hex the mask to create a dark power inside of it, as a weapon that would help destroy many who try to deny them their destiny; the Fused Shadows. The plan worked, all of Hyrule began fighting once the Interlopers invaded, with the Fused Shadow; however, the Light Spirits of Hyrule Invaded and Unfortunately ruined everything, they shattered the Fused Shadows and banished the Interlopers. with all of those plans failed Majora was alone all except for who remained in the Twilight Realm; myself and Midna, until some strange mask Collector came to our Realm and played the very song the Imp used to turn Majora into a Mask to nullify him so he could take him, but before he was taken, myself and Midna fought to decide the next to rule the Twilight Realm. Years later, the evil in Majora's Mask had been stripped away and the Mask had become a decaying broken shell; when Ganondorf was brought to this realm I had noticed the remains of the mask inside his armor crumbling; Master Majora was gone so I had looked up to Ganondorf as my master; but however, I do hear my true King Majora calling out to me." Zant explained as Beldam looked at Zant with an astonished look as she realized how very similar they are when it comes to being contacted by their King or Queen from beyond.
"This must be a sign, that our link to our God is true and that there are more of us."
"I sense it too, we must all gather together, to restore the Antilight, our God: Daraku; he needs to be free from his captivation; we need to gather all of those who are linked to restore the Antilight and free him; our God Daraku can use any being who is linked to the Antilight to do his bidding, even through time and space and when Daraku is sealed, his power can still take it's hold; he shall control all that exists; which is why we the Twili and you the Shadow Sirens shall join forces, and find the others who are linked to restore the Antilight and Free Daraku, and watch all of existence become one; with the Antilight." Zant said as Beldam appeared with a smile as she went underground and unearthed a Subspace Bomb that she had been hiding along the way.
"How about I bring one of these to the Twilight Realm; it'll help merge our worlds together." Beldam said as Zant inspected the Subspace Bomb.
"Master Majora told me that a certain Weapon, that can be used to help merge our worlds together; in any case, I shall gladly accept it, come with me Bedlam and let's figure out who else, is apart of our link with Daraku; maybe they might find us before we find them, in any case, let's go to my realm and make some plans, perhaps we could also make a deal with eachother as well."
"What kind of deal?" Beldam asked as Zant chanted some words and summoned some magic as a portal opened,
"We'll talk about it when we enter the Twilight Realm." Zant said, as Bedlam followed him into the Twilight Realm and found herself in a world where light and shadows were as one, it almost made Beldam comfortable in her surrounding knowing how this world and it's surroundings are to her own race of beings the Shadow Sirens. "Welcome to the Twilight Realm, so what do you think?"
"Ah a nice and perfect place , for a Shadow Siren such as myself, anyways I shall leave this Subspace Bomb here, why not come with me to my Palace, I need to leave one there as well if we want to make this merger complete."
"Yes, but first remember your promise; yo'll help me revive my Master Majora."
"Yes, but how are going to revive him?" Beldam asked as Zant thought about solutions.
"If only there was a way to go back in time, before he lost his power, if only there were any Timeshift Stones left in existence."
"What are Timeshift Stones?"
"They were these stones than can alter the course of time by activating one could set an entire area back in time to a state that it was in a hundred years or more into the past."
"Well I could call Bowser and Ganondorf to come and pick us up and we could use Crazy Hand to open a portal for us."
"Too Risky, why don't we first go to the Sacred Grove, there's a door there that acts as a Portal going into the Temple of Time; we can check to see if there are any Timeshift Stones there, since you can go underground maybe we might find some stones deep below the ground there, or maybe perhaps that door is made up of Timeshift Stones."
"Well there's only one way to find out, let's go and find some Timeshift Stones." Beldam said as Zant opened another Portal leading out of the Twilight Realm and into the sacred Grove in hope of searching for Timeshift Stones.
Meanwhile back in the Present, both Bowser and Ganondorf returned from the Past as they were greeted by both Master and Crazy Hand.
"You have returned with Ganondorf I see, if anything your Children are disrupting the Tournament." Master Hand said as Bowser shrugged it off, as Bowser Jr, Larry, Iggy, Lemmy, Morton, Wendy, Roy, and Ludwig were all firing Cannonballs and Mechakoopas at Mario, Link, Kirby, Rosalina, Mega Man, and Samus.
"We have a different agenda, and we will not allow you to interfere with it." Bowser said with a snarl as Master Hand approached them.
"I have a feeling that what you're trying to do is restore the Antilight; we can sense Daraku's presence, he's manipulating you two so he can finally have us all, right where he wants us." Master hand said as Bowser and Ganondorf both laughed.
"So what you're saying is we're being controlled by a unseen Higher Power; hmph if anything, we want to know more about the Antilight and what else makes up it besides Shadows and Twilight?" Ganondorf said as Master hand started to loom over the two villains before Crazy Hand steeped in.
"Dark Aether, the Ings; they are also linked to the Antilight; I shall assist you once again, by opening a wormhole in time to when a Phazon Leviathan struck the Planet Aether causing the conflict between the Luminoths and the Ings." Crazy Hand said as Master Hand charged at Crazy Hand with a Closed Fist.
"You dare mention the very elements that make up the Antilight; have you also been put under Daraku's Influence; you have single-handedly betrayed the Entire Universe, by allowing these Monsters to go and reform the Antilight." Master hand said as Crazy Hand retaliated with a fist of his own to his Right Handed Brother.
"Chaos, I live for Chaos, it is the only thing I live for, Order is boring, Chaos rules all; and so will Lord Daraku, as soon as he's free; I no longer wish to keep Daraku's spirit sealed up in that Orb; soon his spirit will be free, and the World will resemble the way it should have been a long time ago; free from the light." Bowser and Ganondorf also charged at Master Hand with a Wizard's Foot Kick from Ganondorf and a Bowser Bomb from Bowser, and a Hard Punch from the Crazy Hand; Master Hand was taken down as Crazy Hand Gripped some thin air and opened up another Portal. "You would never understand what true power really is Master Hand, now Bowser and Ganondorf; go on ahead and make your way into planet Aether; there are Space Pirates there, i'm not sure if they will treat you like allies or enemies; while your there, look for a Space Dragon named Ridley, if you can try to convince it that Samus is here."
"OK then; we'll look for this Ridley, and I hope these Space Pirates have enough brains not to attack us, anyways let's go meet the Ings; but before we do." Bowser said looking over at his Children who were still fighting Mario and the others and approached them. "Kids that's enough for now, me and your Uncle Ganondorf want you to come with us." Bowser said as Junior and the rest of the Koopalings stopped their attack and followed their father to the portal Crazy Hand opened. "Ok Kids this is your Uncle Ganondorf; we'll have more time for introductions later, for now we're going to go to a place called Dark Aether to recruit some allies, and want you to join us."
"All right Papa, we're ready to do whatever you and Uncle Ganondorf want us what to do." Bowser Jr. said as he and the other Koopalings followed Bowser and Ganondorf into the Wormhole as they found themselves going through time and space as they were now in the Middle of a war torn Planet Aether, with Dark Portals opening all over Aether as the Luminoth were being Slaughtered by Space Pirates and Ings.
"My guess is that the Ings are the ones with the Red Eye and covered in some form of Dark Aura to attack with, and I also believe those to be Space Pirates also with them; in any case, why don't we attack the Lumionth to prove that we are allies." Bowser said looking over at the Luminoth who were using light auras to defend themselves from the Onslaught from the combined power of the Ings and Space Pirates. "Ok Jr, go ahead ansd shoot these defenseless Luminoth andwe'll take care of the rest to earn the trust of the Ings and Space Pirates.
"Alright Papa, right away." Junior said as he fired a cannonball from the mouth of his Clown Copter directly at the Luminoth who were taking cover from the Space Pirate attack. The cannonball fired directly as Bowser and Ganondorf took the charge attacking Luminoth as the Space Pirates held off on their attack; as they watched Bowser and Ganondorf take down the Luminoth. After taking out the Luminoth both Bowser and Ganondorf looked over at the Ings and Space Pirates, as Bowser began to speak.
"We are not enemies, we are allies; we happen to know your enemy Samus Aran; please join us, together we will rule this entire Universe as one?" Bowser offered as the Space Pirates approached, before they began to hear loud noises coming from in the air.
"What is that noise?" Ganondorf asked, complete unfamiliar with aircraft, as several Spacecrafts began to descend on the grounds of Aether.
"That must be the Galactic Federation, butting in looking to try to destroy the spread of Phazon, Space Pirates, and Ings; we are going to fight alongside you, afterwards we will reveal our full plan. Bowser said as he, Ganondorf, The Koop Kids, the Spare Pirates and The Ings al lstood their grounds, as the Galactic Federation all descended to attack the Space Pirates; but they did not expect to be attacked by Bowser and Ganondorf along with the Koopalings, as Bowser breathed a breath of Fire, and Ganondorf used his Dark Magic to fight off the Galactic Federation Soldiers.
"Commander Malkovich; we have a situation here on Aether, the Space Pirates are here, but so are a number of unidentified monsters attacking the Luminoths and are troops; send for S..." The Soldier was cut off as Ganondorf came up from behind and impaled the Soldier with his sword.
"You will not send anyone to help you now." Ganondorf said as the Galactic Federation Soldiers were all being Annihilated by the combined powers of Bowser, Ganondorf, The Koopalings, The Space Pirates, and The Ings; until there was nothing left but ruins.
"I told you, if all of us join forces, we can be unstoppable and destroy all of our enemies; now Ings, we would like to see who's in charge of you all; we want to make a deal with your leader so we can consider merging your world with others; all for a greater power." Bowser said as the space Pirates and Ings approached Bowser and seemingly walked over to a portal. "So you'll lead me to your leader from this portal?" The Spare Pirates answered for the Ings and nodded as Bowser and Ganondorf followed the Ings into the Dark Wastelands of Dark Aether.
Meanwhile back in the Present at the Super Smash Bros Tournament, Link was set to challenge Pit at the Temple of the Goddess Palutena.
"We might have been allies during the Subspace Invasion, and you may be a hero; but I am an Angel and to the Goddess Palutena, and I shall dedicate this victory to her." said Pit making an obvious dork of himself.
"Ok then, Angel of a Goddess; I happen to represent a land watched over by three other Goddesses Din, Naryu, and Farore; not to mention I weild the Master Sword, the very blade that is the solution to all evil; now get ready for a real fight." Link said as Master Hand called out to him still hurt from being attacked by Crazy Hand, Bowser, and Ganondorf.
"Three, Two, One...Go!" Master Hand said as Link charged at Pit with the Master Sword as Pit separated Palutena's Bow into two Bladesas the Hero of Hyrule and Angel of Light did battle with each other in a Clash of Heroic Proportions. Link would slash at Pit with his Sword but Pit was able to fence off the attacks with his Blades as Link would take his knee and knock Pit in the Chin, as the Hero of Hyrule took out a Bomb as tossed it at Pit, but Put took out the Upperdash Arm and deflected the Bomb back at Link, however Link was able to use his Shield to prevent any damage to himself after the Bomb exploded. While Link had a moment to breath, Pit put his bow back together and shot an Arrow of Light at Link hitting the Hero of Hyrule making him take a step back as Link took out his own Bow and Fired at Pit hitting Pit right in his knee, as Pit jumped up in the air and once again separated the bow to attack Link but Link was able to spin around on the heel of his boots and hit Pit with his sword. This fight was however being watched as a certain Goddess was checking out the action that was going on outside her Temple.
"This Fighter from Hyrule is Quite Impressive, for a mere mortal." said Palutena watching the fight as Link again took his sword to attack Pit but Pit this time used his blades to block the sword from touching him, as Pit took the blades to try to attack Link, but Link was able to use his Hylian Shield to block the Blades from hitting him.
"Nice Try, but your nothing compared to the Underworld Army." Pit said as he reconnected the blades together and spun them around and then tried to hit Link with it as Link again used his shield to block the attack. Pit then separated his bow again and used his blade to attack Link's Legs, but Link stepped back and swung his sword at Pit but Pit was able to jump back on his Feet and jump up in the air using the Power of Flight taking to the air as Link took his Bow back out and fired it at Pit, but Pit was able to dodge the arrow and reconnect his Bow, and fire several arrows at Link; but Link rolled out of the way dodging them as Link then took out his Clawshot and used it to grapple Pit's Ankle as Link looked to drag Pit back down to the ground before Pit split his bow and used the blades to cut the chain of the Clawshot freeing himself in the process. After Pit dropped back to th ground again, Link once again charged at Pit using the Master Sword, swinging it a couple of time at Pit before Pit was able to jump up into the air with a backflip dodging another swing by Link's Sword. After Pit's Feet touched the Ground Link swung his sword at Pit again as Pitonce again blocked the attack with his blades, before Link took his Foot and kicked Pit in the gut, causing Pit to go flying back and hitting the ground, Link then took out the Gale Boomerang and tossed it over at Pit who was now on his knees, as the Gale Boomerang had created a small whirlwind in the direction it was flying to; it was just about to hit Pit before a beam of light appeared saving Pit from being his by the Gale Boomerang. Out of the beam of light came the Goddess of Light, Palutena wielding her staff and holding a shield in her other hand,looking like she was ready for battle, as she just saved Pit from Link's attack. Pit looked up at Palutena trying to catch his breath from the battle he's had with Link. "Lady Palutena?" Pit asked looking up at the Goddess standing in front of him, while the Angel was still on his knees trying to catch his breath.
"Oh, i'm not here to save you, Pit!" Palutena said as a light shined at the tip of Palutena's Staff, as Pit's body now found itself being elevated as the wings on his back began to move sending Pit flying out of the way, as Palutena wielded her Staff like a weapon staring at Link. "I'm here for a little...uh?..Divine Intervention." Palutena said as Link stepped in ready for a fight, however Palutena wouldn't be the only one joining this fight, as a Dark Angel looking very similar to Pit descended at the Temple, as his presence didn't go unnoticed by Palutena. "Dark Pit, you just came in to crash me party." Palutena said as the Fallen Angel crossed his arms with a smirk on his face.
"Uh Huh!" said Dark Pit as Pit now found himself being dropped safely back on the surface of the temple and came face to face with his dark doppleganger. "Well if it isn't, my irritating, Light Doppleganger."
"Huh, Hey Pittoo, are you in this Tournament too." Pit said before Dark Pit came charging at Pit and delivered a devestating Dropkick to Pit.
"How many times have I told you to stop calling me Pittoo." said Dark Pit looking very annoyed, but then Mario and Rosalina arrived on Palutena's temple behind Link, as Palutena, Pit, and Dark Pit were now all standing across from eachother.
"This fight just got made into a Three on Three Smash." Mario said as Link smiled.
"Sounds fair to me." Link said as he and Mario looked over at the Pit as Rosalina and Palutena stared eachother down.
"So you're the Queen of the Cosmos, huh? Let's see what your made of, because you are going to be seeing stars, courtesy of the Goddess Palutena." Palutena said weilding her Staff with Rosalina not backing down.
"You might be a Goddess, but I protect the very Cosmos that we all live in, and mother of the Lumas, I will not be underestimated." Rosalina said, weilding a Magic Wand with a Luma following Rosalina as both sides looked to do battle.
Bowser and Ganondorf have managed to make allies with Space Pirates and the Ings, can they really reform the power of the Antilight, and what about Beldam, will she and Zant be able to find a way to revive both Majora and the Shadow Queen; and as the Super Smash Bros Tournament continues; it makes you wonder who will win this upcoming battle between the teams of Mario, Link, and Rosalina against Pit, Dark Pit, and Palutena; plus what about the rest of the Smashers? All of these questions to be answered and a lot more in the next exciting Chapter of the Antilight Invasion.
To Be Continued.
