Ladybug felt like her fingers were going to fall off. She’d been holding on to her yo-yo for over an hour. But if she let go, she’d fall to her death. How would it be until this girl landed? Unless, she knew she would follow her.
She didn’t have to worry long. The plane slowly began to descend, and Ladybug finally had a chance to get back on the ground. She let the yo-yo untangle itself and allowed herself to fall into the forest beneath her. She then use her yo-yo to grapple a tree branch as she swung under it and onto the forest floor, and reeled her yo-yo in.
The lunette then scanned her surroundings. The good news was she was on the groun

After recovering from the event that happened eight years ago, Japan was finally free from the wrath of Kaiju. Despite some attacks in some areas, these were only from villains who wanted to conquer Earth. Yet they were dealt with by the Sailor Guardians and their leader, Sailor Moon. The only challenge for these girls was the King of the Monsters: Godzilla. Thankfully, no one had seen Godzilla for over a decade, and presumed that he either died or went into hibernation. Despite this, the Japanese continued to live life free from monsters. But that didn’t stop some to make

“Now then…allow me to show you…”, Monokuma said. “I’ll skip my second and third forms and go straight into…MY FINAL FORM!”
“You’d better not be bluffing!” Akane Owari snapped. “I’m going to beat the crap out of you and pull all your stuffing out!”
Monokuma simply laughed at how foolish Owari was able to threaten him. He then clenched his “fists” and started to charge up energy. Soon, he was surrounded by a lightish-blue wave of energy as small rocks began to levitate up as grunted in agony. “Now then! Make sure you burn this ginormous despair you’re about to see into your memories!” As his power reached critical mass, he howled in pain and shouted, “I-I’M GONNA D-DIEEEEEEEEEEEE!”

A Dream Come True: A Miraculous Fanfic
It was movie night at Juleka’s House, and the goth was excited to spend time with Rose, Marinette, Alya, Mylène, Alix, Aurore, Mireille, Lila, and Kagami. Tonight, they were going to be watching a horror film. Attack of the Alien Hotdogs to be precise. Juleka couldn’t hold it in for much longer. She’d watched the movie before a couple of times, but this was the first time she would watch it with friends. This would be the best movie night she ever had.
“You girls ready for some ‘Attack of the Alien Hotdogs’ action?” She asked
“Who wouldn’t be?” Alix answered. “Bring on the swine!”
“This is going to be so much fun!” Alya agreed.
“Agreed”, Kagami added in.
“Let’s get this movie night started!” Juleka exclaimed. She put the DVD into the player and sat on the couch with Kagami, Mylène, and Rose to enjoy it. “Don’t worry, Rose. If things get to scary, I

Lake Ikeda
10:05 P.M.

Ladybug felt like her fingers were going to fall off. She’d been holding on to her yo-yo for over an hour. But if she let go, she’d fall to her death. How would it be until this girl landed? Unless, she knew she would follow her.

She didn’t have to worry long. The plane slowly began to descend, and Ladybug finally had a chance to get back on the ground. She let the yo-yo untangle itself and allowed herself to fall into the forest beneath her. She then use her yo-yo to grapple a tree branch as she swung under it and onto the forest floor, and reeled her yo-yo in.

The lunette then scanned her surroundings. The good news was she was on the ground. Bad news was that not only had she lost the plane, but she was in unfamiliar territory. How was she going to find her way out of here?

Suddenly, she heard rustling in the foliage behind her. Ladybug quickly turned around, expecting the girl. Instead, she found a sika deer grazing nearby.

"Silly, Marinette," The lunette said to herself, "Scared by a deer. What’s next? A squirrel?"

Suddenly, loud popping noises echoed through the forest. The deer got spooked and took off. Ladybug looked towards where the sound was coming from. She followed it towards the lake.

When she got out of the forest, she saw a group of teenagers on the lakeside. They were lighting fireworks and having fun. It was typical for teenagers to stay up at night and do crazy things. But then she remembered about the girl. She’d better get these people to safety before anything bad happens, even if they didn’t recognize her.

"Excuse me," Ladybug said as she jogged out of the forest. "I’m sorry to interrupt your moment but…"

"Whoa, nice costume," one of the teenagers said. "But, isn’t it a bit too early for the comic-con?"

"Um, actually, I’m not a cosplayer. I’m a superhero. My name’s Ladybug."

"Okay, Chiharu," a female teen said, "We get it. You always let us know about the comic-con by wearing a costume two days before it happens."

'Chiharu,' Ladybug thought, 'Who are they talking about?'

"So, are you going to come have fun or not?"

"Well, actually, I thought I saw something moving through the woods," The lunette replied. If she wanted to get these people out of here, she had to trick them into leaving. "I thought it was a bear. Are there bears here?"

"Sometimes."

"Well, I think I saw a bear. We should leave."

"Come on, Chiharu!" One of the teens replied, "Are you scared of just one bear?"

"No, I’m scared of you all probably getting killed by it."

"Okay, we’ll go…" said one of the teenagers, probably the leader.

"Finally," Ladybug sighed.

"…after we get some drinks from the convenience store."

"Convenience store?"

——————————————————————

*CRASH*

The sound of smashing glass was like the school bell for Ladybug. She wanted the teenagers to leave for their own safety. Instead, they seem to be completely ignoring her warnings. If she had told them the truth, the result would be the same, with her being laughed at.

She angrily sat outside the store, with a barking guard dog to keep her company. Inside, some of the teenagers were ransacking shelves and coolers for food and drinks. If this is how many Japanese teenagers behaved, she was out of her league. Or maybe it was because they’ve never seen nor heard of akumas before.

"Hey, Chiharu," one of the male teens replied, "Do us a favor and help Shusuke and Kow find something big?"

"For what reason?" The lunette replied.

"To put something on top of that stupid dog so it can drown in the lake," a female teen replied. "I hate dogs."

"And why would I do that?"

"Because you always volunteer to do something," the leader replied. "And for once, you’ll do something useful."

"Okay! That’s it. Breaking into a convenience store is one thing. But drowning an innocent dog in the lake? Are you crazy?!"

"You’ll do as told."

"But what about the bear?!"

"We have fireworks. We can scare it off."

"And with we run out?"

"Then, we leave."

Ladybug was now between the lesser of two evils. On one hand, she could get the teens to leave by simply doing one simple task, but said task meant drowning an innocent dog. On the other hand, she could save the dog and get as far away as she could, but that would mean the teens would get attack by the akumatized villain. Whose life was more valuable: the dog’s or the teens’?

"Hey, Kiyotaka," said Kow. He and Shusuke were coming back from the lakeside with a small statue in hand. "We found something."

"Excellent," the teen named Kiyotaka said. He then turned to Ladybug. "Guess you weren’t needed after all."

"Well, guess not. But, you can’t drown that dog."

"If you want us out," Shusuke began, "you can talk to that old man we saw back there and apologize to him."

"And why would I want to do that?"

"Do that," Kiyotaka said, "and we’ll bring the dog to a kennel or something. Okay?"

"Fine!" The lunette fumed as she walked to the location Shusuke said he saw the man. 'These teens are even worse than Chloe or Lila,' she thought.

When she reached the location, she saw an old man watching her from the brush. He had a beard, mustache, and hair that went down to his neck; all white. He had a rounded hat on his head and was dressed like a hermit. Scarlet-colored buttoned shirt, a black vest, and black pants.

This was the same man Yuri saw when she was on Mt. Myoko.

Ladybug was a bit creeped out by his appearance, but she had to do this. "Excuse me, mister. My name’s Ladybug. You probably never heard of me, but that’s okay. The important thing is that I’m sorry for what those teens did. Basically, I’m just trying to warn them of bears around here, but they aren’t taking it seriously, and now they want to drown…" As Ladybug looked back at the teens, she could see Shusuke putting the statue in a box, with the dog inside. "I can’t believe! They lied to me! Don’t worry, mister. I’m going to try and…" But as soon as Ladybug looked back at the man, he was gone. Vanished.

"Okay." She quickly ran back to the area the teens were hanging out. "Guys, I think we should leave, now."

"Did you take care of the man?" Kiyotaka asked.

"Forget the man!" Ladybug shouted. "We need to get out of here! There’s something more stranger out here. And I don’t want to stick here to find out!"

"Relax," one of the female teens said. "What could go wrong?"

"Wait, weren’t there more of you?"

"Shusuke, Mori, Kow, and Maasaki are on a boat. They’re taking the dog across the lake."

"Tell them to come back. They’re going to get killed!" Ladybug’s ranting was followed by silence before being answered by laughter.

"And what pray tell would kill them? The Loch Ness Monster? The Kappa? Godzilla?"

Suddenly, a loud splash got their attention. They looked out at the lake. The boat the teens Kiyotaka mentioned were used had suddenly turned over, and they fell into the lake. The rest of the group rushed to the edge of the lakeside to get a closer look. Ladybug, meanwhile, stayed put, for she saw something moving under the water. The four teens on the boat surfaced.

Shusuke was the first to surface, followed by Mori, Kow, and Maasaki. "What the heck is going on?" He said before he was pulled forcefully underwater.

"What’s the matter?" Mori sarcastically said to Shusuke(even though he was fifteen feet under the surface). "Can’t you…" was all she could say before she, too, was pulled underwater.

"Help!" Kow shouted before he and Maasaki met the same fate.

The rest of the teens watched in horror. It had been thirty seconds, and neither of the four had surfaced. Ladybug was now shaking, terrified. Never before had something scared her this much.

Suddenly, the water where the teens were exploded upwards, and out came Shusuke, Mori, Kow, and Maasaki. The four were launched out of the depths and into the sky. Then, gravity took hold and the four fell into shallow water, splashing the others.

"What happened?" Kiyotaka asked.

"Something big knocked over the boat. It dragged us underneath, yet it didn’t eat us."

"What did the thing look like?" Ladybug asked, running over to the others.

"It had pink hair, glowing blue eyes, and human-like hands. No way am I going back in there."

"The akumatized villain," Ladybug said to herself. She almost forgot she was among others.

"What?" One of the female teens said.

"Nothing."

"You said something about a villain, didn’t you Chiharu?"

Ladybug couldn’t take it anymore. She had to tell the truth, even if it meant getting laughed at. She took a deep breath and said, "Yes, I did. And my name’s not Chiharu. It’s Ladybug. I’m a super-heroine who traveled from Paris to follow a group of school kids to protect them. That is my mission. Yet, while out on patrol, I thought I saw a young girl with a ball that turned into an airplane. I thought she was akumatized because in Paris, there’s a villain named Hawkmoth who evilizes others to do his bidding. I followed the girl here to stop her. But when I found you, I lied about the bear so you could all leave. But you didn’t care, you wanted to steal food, drown a dog, and let me handle an old man, who, by the way, disappeared when I looked back at him. And, now that you’ve seen something scary in the lake, we should all get out of here before we all get killed!"

The teens remained silent. The only sounds were the crickets, the waves, and the box with the dog in it washing ashore. It pushed the statue off of it and ran into the convenience store.

"Seriously, Chiharu," Kiyotaka said, "During a moment like this."

"Alright, mister!" Ladybug snapped. "You asked for it!" Before she could tackle him, she saw the water rise up. The lunette gasped and tripped as she stepped away from the lake. "Behind you!"

The teens looked back as the rising water rained back into the lake, revealing a giant humanoid. It looked exactly like the girl Ladybug saw, and probably was the same girl. Mori screamed as she and the rest of the teens ran back to their cars. Kiyotaka, however, bumped into Ladybug and the two fell onto the ground. Before either of them could get up, two giant fingers picked up Kiyotaka by his hoodie and dangled him in front of a pair of blue eyes.

"So, you’re the leader of this troublesome group of teens, huh?" The giantess asked.

"Yes," the teen said with hints of fear. "Please don’t hurt me."

"Well, as much as I’d love to crush you or eat you, you get your wish." The pink-haired giantess placed the frightened Kiyotaka on the ground. "Now get out before I change my mind." The teen didn’t need to be told twice. He scampered away as fast as he could. The giantess watched as he disappeared into the foliage. She then turned her attention to Ladybug. "And as for you…"

"Please, don’t eat me!" The lunette said. However, she heard giggling and saw the giantess laughing. "What’s so funny?"

"Why on Earth would I eat Ladybug, the Parisian superhero?"

"You heard of me?"

"Of course, who hasn’t? You’re very popular in Japan."

"Thanks. So, you aren’t an akumatized villain?"

"Nope, just a young girl zapped by a growth ray, Marinette."

"Unbelievable. How do you have a shrink… Wait, what did you call me?!"

"Marinette. As in Marinette Dupain-Cheng."

"How do you know who I am?"

"To tell you the truth, I’ve asked Sailor Pluto to let me visit Paris to see what life is like there. I disguise myself as either a Parisian or turn invisible. And I’ve seen you transform on certain occasions."

"I can’t believe it. Wait, did you say Sailor Pluto?"

"Yes. I call her Puu for short."

"Is she related in anyway to Sailor Moon?"

"Duh."

"Do you know Sailor Moon?"

"Know her? She’s my big sister."

"What?!"

"Actually, her civilian form, Usagi Tsukino, is. Her future form, Princess Serenity, is my mother."

"Future?"

"Yep."

"Which means?"

"I come from the future. My name is Chibiusa Tsukino. Also known as Sailor Chibi Moon."

"So, there are other Sailor heroes?"

"Yep. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and my best friend, Saturn."

"Lincoln didn’t tell me about them," Ladybug said to herself again. And once again, she forgot about being next to someone else.

"Lincoln? As in Lincoln Loud?"

"Wait, you know him?"

"I only saw him once. I know his sister, Lisa Loud. She claims she’s better than Mercury, called her an ignoramus. She tried to get my time traveling secrets. She even asked BiggerBetterBarbie to deliver an envelope to me."

"What did it say?"

"Said I’m a fool if me and Senshi were the only ones to use time travel."

"Well, she doesn’t seem as simple-minded as the rest of her family."

"There, see?"

"Now, can I address the elephant in the lake? What were you doing?"

"I just felt like growing and rampaging. And Yokohama seemed like a good place. But when I saw you in the window, I realized I had to confront you and meet you face-to-face. I’d knew you’d come after me. You didn’t think I realize you were hanging on to your yo-yo, right?"

"No?"

"Liar. But when I saw those teens down there, I couldn’t resist growing. I decided to drink a potion that would not only make me big, but also allow me to breathe underwater."

"Well, I was scared out of my wits when you emerged from the lake. I thought you were akumatized."

"And is that how you treat all people you don’t know by appearance?" Ladybug remembered when she thought a Santa lookalike who brought Adrien to his house was an akumatized villain. This actually made him akumatized by Hawkmoth. The lunette smiled nervously, and Chibiusa could see through it. "Thought so."

"Well, now that those troublemakers are gone, better return this statue to its rightful place." But as soon as she picked it up, suddenly, a strange band of energy ran into her body and electrocuted her. It was as if the statue was like an electric fence. Then, she felt herself being thrown off the ground and landed in the bushes. Chibiusa walked towards her. When the lunette recovered and stepped out of the brush, she realized she was no longer Ladybug. She was now plain-old Marinette. "What happened? Tikki?"

The kwami emerged from the shrubbery, shaken, but not seriously hurt. "I’m not sure, but apparently, that blast was powerful enough to separate us. It was almost like it was absorbing our DNA."

"DNA? How?"

"Not sure."

"Maybe, it’s a magical statue," Chibiusa said.

"Maybe," Tikki agreed.

"Well, that’s probably the craziest…" Marinette said before she realized something. "Hold on. Tikki, why aren’t you freaked out by the fact there’s another being here? You said you’re supposed to be seen by only me and Master Fu."

"Well, the Sailor Guardians once helped the Keepers of the Miraculous in fighting evil. They were use to seeing kwamies."

"Well, now that that’s out of the way, may I continue in saying that the statue being magical is probably the craziest I’ve ever heard?"

"Well, you just said it," Chibiusa said

"And there is magic in this world," Tikki added.

"Okay. So if the statue was magical, why would it zap us and take our DNA?" She was going to find out. Suddenly, the water began to rise as something big and found moved towards the shore. Chibiusa, Marinette, and Tikki looked out and slowly stepped(or hovered in Tikki’s case) away from the lakeside. "Please tell me that’s a friend of yours."

"Actually, I wish it was either Ami or Michiru. But it’s not." And she was right.

As the water fell of the object’s back, it revealed it to be a giant caterpillar. A giant, brown, segmented caterpillar with tusks, vertical mouth, and blue eyes. If you haven’t already guessed yet, this was Mothra, the Guardian of the Sea.

"What do we do?!" Marinette asked the giant pink-haired girl.

"I got this," Chibiusa said before turning to the caterpillar. "Alright, fiend. Back down or get ready for a fight. Because in the name of the moon, I’ll punish you."

Mothra didn’t heed the warning. It chirped and inched closed to Marinette and Tikki.

"HHHEEEEEELLLLLLLLPPPPPPPP!"

Somewhere in Yokohama.
5:05 P.M.
————————————————————

At a restaurant, Yuri was with her friends having dinner, but she wasn’t happy. When she told her boss about the quake and how she thought the epicenter had moved, he just told her that they specialized in only low budget fake documentaries, not investigations. This really disappointed her as she wanted to prove what happened was no natural occurrence. However, she did notice her boss being surprised at something before walking off.

"Sometimes I wish I were born a man" she said to her friends.

"Why’s that?" Asked the guy next to her. He had short black hair and was wearing a dull buttoned-shirt. "I’d think you’d make a great cook."

"Because I’m NOT allowed to make the programs I want to make! As a women, you’re expected to do as you’re told."

Fortunately, Yuri‘s lament wouldn’t last for long. She heard a waitress say "Good Evening, Miss" and turned to see who it was. Suddenly, she froze in place. Her friends looked at her, then towards what she was looking at. Or rather who she was looking at. A short, pink-haired teenage girl.

Alix, her class, Jalil, and Lincoln’s family had arrived in Japan earlier in the afternoon. They went their separate ways for the day as they explored Japan and its wonderful sights. It was until dinner that the two groups reunited at the restaurant to have dinner. This might’ve seem strange to Alix, but things got more stranger when she stepped into the restaurant. When she walked in, she also froze in place when she saw Yuri.

"So who’s that?" One of Yuri’s friends asked.

"Alix!" Yuri shouted in happiness.

"Yuri!" Alix shouted as well. She ran toward the table her cousin was. Yuri got up from her seat and the two girls embraced each other in a bear hug. Might be strange to you, but hey: these girls haven’t seen each other in eight years. "It’s nice to see you again, itoko."

"Same to you, cousin."

"So who’s this?" Another one of Yuri’s friends asked.

"This is Alix Kubdel, my cousin from Paris. I haven’t seen her in eight years."

"You mean since the incident in 2002?" One of her lady friends asked.

"The same one!" Alix replied as she and Yuri broke off from the hug. She then looked to her left and called out. "Jalil, look who’s here?"

Jalil stepped into sight and couldn’t believe his eyes. "Yuri!" He ran to her cousin, happy as a clam. But he wasn’t watching where he was going, and accidentally bumped into a waitress carrying drinks. Luckily, the waitress was able to regain her balance and keep every drink on the tray from falling over. But Jalil wasn’t as lucky and fell on the floor, sliding to a stop in front of Alix and Yuri.

"Sorry about that" Yuri apologized to the waitress before looking down at her cousin. "Still as clumsy as ever I see."

"Am not! Well… only a little."

"Little is right. Be glad I’m not as big as Godzilla, or else I would’ve stuffed you between my toes."

"*Gulp* I’m definitely glad you’re not that big."

"Speaking of big, you’ve grown a bit since I last saw you. But you’re still smaller than Jalil, Alix."

"Yep, it’s great having your big brother follow you everywhere you go" Alix sarcastically remarked.

"I’m worried about you. Ever since I heard what happened on your fifteen birthday, plus the fact what happened last time we were here, I didn’t want you to get hurt."

"And is being a tutor for your sister on a field trip helping her be safe from all danger?"

"I didn’t want you to get bad grades."

"Field trip?" Yuri asked.

"Yeah, the reason we came here was because Ms. Bustier wanted my class to find similarities and differences between the cities of Japan and France" Alix replied. "Akhenaten, here, decided to join to help me get good grades and protect me from harm. Plus, Dad wanted him out of his hair for a while."

"Thanks to my expert geological skills and knowledge in history, my little sis will certainly pass" The brunet said.

"You mean the same skills and knowledge you used in order to try to unlock the secret of the revival of Nefertiti?" Alix asked. Just a few days after Alix turned fifteen, Jalil was akumatized into a Pharaoh-themed villain. He was brainwashed into resurrecting Nefertiti by almost sacrificing Alya at the Louvre.

"Besides that!"

Yuri sat back down and made room for Alix, who sat down next to her. This would’ve been like violating someone else’s personal space, but they were family. Jalil, however, had to sit at the opposite end of the table, much to Alix’s relief.

"You said you were on a field trip with your class," Yuri said. "But where’s your class?"

"Right here!" Said a voice.

Alix and Yuri looked at the entrance and saw Marinette and her best friend, Alya Césaire, walk towards them. Alya was tan-skinned and as tall as Marinette. She had way, reddish-brown ombré hair that grew slightly past her shoulders, with the tips of her hair having a light shading of copper red. She had a beauty mark above her right eyebrow. She wore a light berry colored lipstick and black rimmed glasses, with a white spot on each side. Her outfit consisted of a white tank top underneath a short-sleeved plaid shirt with white, orange, and purple stripes; light blue jeans, and white sneakers with black tops.

"You didn’t forget about us, did you girl?" Alya asked.

"Absolutely not!" Alix replied. "But I’m glad you’re here."

"Um, Alix?" Marinette asked, concerned. "Didn’t Ms. Bustier tell us about personal space on the ride here?"

"Don’t worry…" Yuri said, "I’m her cousin. It’s fine."

Marinette and Alya couldn’t believed their ears. Alix had told them she had a cousin, but she never described her. Yet, here she was. Just happening to be at the same diner they were stopping at.

"You’re Alix’s cousin?" They said at the same time.

"Yep, Yuri Tachibana. Pleasure to meet you two."

Marinette and Alya managed regain their composure and introduced themselves.

"I’m Marinette Dupain-Cheng."

"And I’m Alya Césaire. Pleasure to meet you, Yuri."

Alix stood up and walked to the entrance. "I’m going to get the rest of my class. Be right back." She walked out of sight, and came back a few seconds later with the rest of her class. She introduced them one by one to her cousin.

First up was Rose Lavillant; the cutest and nicest girl you would’ve ever saw. She was petite, standing at 5’0, with a blonde pixie cut hairstyle, pink lipstick, and periwinkle eyes. She wore a shirt with light pink sleeves and top front, pink and white stripes on the front, a pink back that had a golden wing design, and a string tied around her waist. She also had a pink mini skirt with two white edges at the bottom of her cloth, white leggings, two pink bracelets around her right wrist, and pink dress shoes. "It’s so nice to meet you, Yuri. I’m glad Alix has a cousin like you." This made Yuri blush.

Next was Rose’s gothic friend, Juleka Couffaine. She stood at a medium height with copper eyes and long black hair, which had violet tips, and bangs that covered her left eye. She had pale lavender lipstick, and wore a black shirt with a swan-necked collar, a sea green lined collar (and side pockets), and black laced short sleeves. On her hands, she wore black fingerless lace gloves with a diamond pattern design that ended halfway up her forearm. She also wore purple pants with holes cut above the knees and black high top sneakers with white soles. Her fingernails were painted grey, with black nail art of intricate patterns on each one. "Awesome." Juleka was normally shy and was a girl with few words.

She then introduced Ivan Bruel and Mylene Haprèle, the classmate couple. Mylene was short and chubby with golden brown eyes and blonde hair(some strands having been dyed blue, green, and magenta) put in dreadlocks. One dreadlock on her left side had a purple cat bead, with another dreadlock on the same side having a golden loop. She wore a pink bandana to hold her hair back, and a necklace with a stone pendant. She also wore a periwinkle shirt with a white silhouette on the front of a small bird holding a branch with leaves, which was underneath an olive green hoodie jacket with a number of the buttons on the right side; dark gray jean shorts, black leggings, and dark purple and white sneakers. Ivan, meanwhile, was large and bulky with gray eyes. His hair: all short and black, with the exception of a tuft long hair above his forehead that was dyed blond. He wore a black T-shirt with a white design of two crossing bones printed on the chest. He also wore black slacks with large belt loops and large pockets, along with white socks and khaki-colored work boots. Despite his looks, he had a tender heart. They bowed at Yuri together to be polite.

Next was Lê Chien Kim, Alix’s rival. He was muscular and taller than the average student at school, probably why he and Alix were rivals. He had olive skin and gray eyes, and his hair(which he styles) is black with the end(a sharp quiff) being dyed gold, similar to Ivan. He wore a red, short-sleeved hoodie jacket with big front pocket (and hoodie) and some white outlines at certain places. On the front of his jacket was a white logo: a downward-pointing pentagon outline outside of a smaller, filled-in pentagon with a red corner and a star. He paired his top with navy blue track sweatpants, and red, white, and black sports shoes. "It’s nice finally meet pinkie’s cousin, and you’re a lot taller than her. Guess that makes you feel superior to her like me."

"Ahem!" Kim looked back to find his teacher, Ms. Caline Bustier, staring angrily at him. She was tall and light-skinned, with reddish-orangish hair, pulled back in a high bun. She had teal eyes, thin light pink lips, and freckles. Her attire consisted of a light blue jacket, with a teal collared shirt, and a white undershirt beneath; pair of white earrings, a small gold necklace dangling from her neck, light blue pants and white dress shoes. "First, it’s inappropriate to mention a girl’s height. Second, what you said would’ve embarrassed Alix in front of Yuri’s friends."

"Sorry, Ms. Bustier." Kim then turned to Alix and Yuri. "Sorry, Alix. Sorry, Yuri. You really do love your cousin, do you?"

"Yeah. She’s awesome. But I don’t mind if you make fun of her brother."

"Why me?" Jalil screamed.

"Nope. I’m just going to wait until introductions are done before I can sit down next to glasses boy."

"Just don’t go too far, Kim" Ms. Bustier reminded Kim before turning to Yuri. "I’m delighted to meet you, Yuri. I’m Ms. Bustier, the teacher."

"Alix must be lucky to have a teacher like you."

This made Ms. Bustier blush. It wasn’t too often she did that.

After Kim came Max Kanté, who was short, had dark skin, curly brown hair, and brown eyes. Max wore black-rimmed glasses, a light green polo shirt, and tan and brown checkered jeans. He also had suspenders with a light tan line between two dark tan lines and silver buckles, along with light grayish blue sneakers and a blue watch on his right wrist. "Salutations, Yuri."

Then came Nino Lahiffe. He was tall, with short dark brown hair, tan skin, and amber eyes. He wears a plain red cap atop his head. He also wore black-rimmed glasses, with a pair of dark gray, blue, and orange headphones found around his neck. He wore a short-sleeved blue shirt with an eye design on the front, having a black pupil, white sclera, dark gray upper eyelid with lashes, and light blue lower lid. Around his jeans was a brown belt. While most of it was hidden by his shirt, one tip sticks out a little bit below it. He wore lime green, pink, red, blue, and yellow bands around his right wrist; blue-gray jeans, and red and white high collar shoes with a white knight design on the tongues. "A pleasure to meet you, dudette."

Alix then introduced her best friend, Nathaniel Kurtzberg. He was around her size, with turquoise eyes and messy red orange hair. He has long bangs that are brushed to the left side of his face. He wore a red t-shirt with a black design on the front. Over his shirt, he wore a gray dress jacket with a folded collar, folded sleeves, and side pockets. He wore purple jeans that are rolled up at the bottom, and his shoes were gray with white lace, with a white section where his toes would be. "P-pleasure to meet you, Yuri." Like Juleka, Mylene and Ivan, Nathaniel was shy and spent most of his time drawing.

"Nathaniel makes cool drawings" Alix acknowledged Yuri. "He likes to draw his adventures with Ladybug as a hero called Evillustrator."

"I’d like to here all about it." Yuri recommended.

Next was Marc Anciel, Nathaniel’s friend. Marc stood at an average height, and had messy black hair, jade green eyes, thick eyebrows, pink lips, and a slender face with a pointed chin. He wore a red hooded jacket with white edges near the zipper and a white section on the back of the hood. It was lined with pink material. Underneath was a multi-colored rainbow shirt. It appeared that he wore black fingerless gloves, ripped dark grey jeans with silver studs along the pockets and around the waist with a silver buckle, and black boots. His nails are painted black and he has a black choker around his neck. Like Juleka, he was very shy and nervous around others… too shy to greet Yuri (although he did wave a friendly hello to her, which she responded to with a wave of her own).

Then came Chloé Bourgeois, one of the meanest girls at school. She was the same height as Alya, with light honey blonde hair pulled back into a high ponytail, and light ocean blue eyes. She wore makeup, including light blue eye-shadow, nude lipstick, and light peach-colored blush. For accessories, she had a gold chain necklace, with a gold sphere charm. She also had white-rimmed sunglasses on her head. Additionally, she wore a yellow long-sleeved jacket over a white shirt with black stripes around the waist. The rest of her outfit included white jean capris with a belt that has diamond-shaped studs and white dress shoes with black lining and soles. She gave Yuri an intimidating glare, giving the redhead the impression that the blonde wasn’t your average student. And she was right.

Chloe was daughter of the mayor of Paris, which made her feel that she was the most important thing in the world. Her subordinate and friend, Sabrina Raincomprix, was around to make sure she did look important. Sabrina was short, and had orange hair in a bob style and sea green eyes. She wore a white hairband and glasses with a pale brown and gray rim. On her lips, she had light pink lipstick. Her attire consisted of a purple and blue argyle vest, and underneath that, a white long-sleeved dress shirt with a gray bow tied to the collar. She had bright blue shorts with a brown belt, black leggings with a dark blue argyle pattern, bright blue socks, and white sneakers with black soles. Sabrina crouched behind Chloe, hoping that she wouldn’t get them into trouble.

"So, you’re Alix’s cousin, right?" The blonde asked selfishly. "Well then, have I got an important question for you…"

Sabrina shrunk behind Chloe. The moment was tense between the blonde and Yuri. Silence (with the exception of the bustling and chatty customers in the restaurant) took over. Alix hoped that Chloe’s actions wouldn’t result in Yuri being akumatized (even though the distance between Yokohama and Paris was 6,063 miles as the crow flies), and that could be catastrophic. Finally, the blonde spoke.

"…Does this restaurant serve sushi? Please tell me!"

That shocked everyone, even Sabrina. Even Ms. Bustier was surprised. Never before had Chloe asked politely without being instructed to. Not to mention that the blonde rarely ever said please.

"Of course!" Yuri replied. "There’s not a single restaurant in Japan that doesn’t serve sushi."

"Thank you so much!" Chloe said happily. "As of now, you and I, along with your cohorts, are now officially my acquaintances!"

"Chloe?!" The blonde turned to see Ms. Bustier staring at her. "Of all the things I thought you were going to say……… that wasn’t even on the list. I’m actually very surprised you said please without being reminded."

"This is Japan. Sushi is the main dish here. It’s like I was made for this place. Plus, maybe Ladybug was right." That surprised Marinette. As Ladybug, she had asked Chloe to be politer around others. And now it seemed to be working.

Then came Lila Rossi, a new student from Italy. Lila stood at an average height. She had olive green eyes and long chestnut brown hair with bangs. Her hair was loosely tied at the tips with orange bands where she had two shorter strands of hair. She had red-orange wristbands on her right arm. Her attire consisted of a red-orange jacket over a dark gray romper that has tiny white spots, light gray tights and brown high heel boots.

Like Chloe, Lila was self-obsessed with herself and sought fame. But she used lies and deception to make friends. This backfired when she first encountered Ladybug (who the redhead falsely claimed that she and her were best friends when she’d never actually met the hero before in her life). Even after being de-akumatized, she loathed the bug-themed heroine and has done so ever since.

"If you must know, I’ve been to Japan multiple times, and I’ve learned almost every word here."

"Well then, Lila…" Alix replied, sensing another fib, "can you say hello to my cousin in Japanese?"

"Well… I-I-I-I… um… Ciao?"

Yuri giggled when she heard that. "It’s Konnichiha", she corrected.

"Right! Sorry. Guess I can’t lie out of every problem."

The next three people weren’t even part of the class, but came for their own reasons. The first, Luka Couffaine, came with the class to look after his sister on behalf of their mother’s request. Luka's eyes were an intense aqua, and had medium-length black hair that had been dyed teal blue at the tips. His lips were a pale pink and he had a Roman nose. His attire included a white shirt with a black imprint of his favorite rockstar, Jagged Stone, and black jeans ripped at the knee. He also wore a brown leather bracelet, yellow and orange wristbands, and his fingernails were painted black. He also had a sky blue jacket with a navy blue hoodie underneath, as well as randomly patched high top converse. He wore a black ring with silver outlining on his left pointer finger and black gauges(plugs for people who stretch their ears). "Don’t worry about introducing yourself. I can feel a calmness from your heart." Yuri felt a little bit creeped out, but understood how kind a person Luka was.

Kagami Tsurugi, meanwhile, had came back to her home country for a visit after transferring to College Francois DuPont when she moved with her mother to Paris.  She stood at an average height, and had pale skin, freckles, light brown eyes, and short black hair with blue reflections(similar to Marinette). She wore a light gray formal vest with a white short sleeved sailor fuku with a dark red ribbon tied in the center, gray skirt, white knee-high socks and black shoes. On the ring finger of her right hand, she wore a black ring that had her family's crest, which resembled the Japanese kanji for "female" (女) augmented by a long vertical line dividing it down the middle and a small curved line at the top of the longer line, which together resembled a rapier. Two long outward spikes stretched from the mark. "Konnichiha, Yuri-San." she said as she bowed in front of Yuri, who responded by giving a bow of her own.

Last in the line of three was Manon Chamack; the only young child in the group. Manon was short with tan skin, messy dark brown hair pulled back into two ponytails, golden-brown eyes, and two upper front buck teeth. She wore a white t-shirt, purple denim overalls with a light purple flower pattern, and red dress shoes with black soles. The reason why she came with the class was because Marinette and Alya had promised her mother, Nadja Chamack, that they would look after her while she was on a business trip(even if it meant bringing the "Little Monkey" with them). "Who are you?"

"I’m Yuri; Alix’s cousin." Yuri replied. "I’m a documentary reporter at Bridgestone Digital Q."

"Like Mom? She’s a news reporter at TVi Studios back home. Her catchphrase is 'Don’t be bemused, it’s just the news!'"

"Yeah, similar to that. But my company’s documentaries are a little more… fictional."

"Fictional?" The little brunette pondered. "You mean your company makes fake documentaries based on Japanese myths and legends just to earn money and bring fame to the places you visit?"

"Umm… Yeah." Yuri was amazed of how well the little child was able to figure out what she meant.

And last, but certainly not least, was Adrien Agreste, son of Parisian designer Gabriel Agreste, and Marinette’s personal crush. He stood a head taller than Marinette, around 5'9". He had brushed-back blond hair and olive green eyes. His skin tone was fair with a rosy tint, especially on his cheeks, nose, and the tips of his ears. He wore a white button-down shirt with an upturned collar and sleeves rolled up above his elbow, which he keeps unbuttoned. Underneath, he wore a black shirt with five horizontal stripes around the chest which are colored, from top to bottom, yellow, olive green, bright green, dark green, and periwinkle. He wore blue jeans and orange sneakers with white laces and a logo of a black butterfly in a circle on the sides. "Pleasure to meet you, Madam."

Yuri, however, was frozen in awe. Alix caught this, and turned to Marinette, Chloé, and Lila. The lunette was trying to keep herself calm, but the blonde and brunette were green with envy: growling angrily(with Sabrina fanning Chloé to keep her calm). Jealousy was always a thing between Marinette and Chloé, as both had a crush on Adrien. But now with Lila thrown in, things were going to get ugly.

"Are you alright, Yuri?" Adrien asked.

"Sorry. It’s just that…"

"Yes?"

"Behind you."

Adrien turned around and found what Yuri was looking at. Or rather… who Yuri was looking at. A young boy with white hair. Lincoln Loud.

"Let me guess," the aforementioned boy said, "It’s because of my white hair, isn’t it?"

Yuri just stood dumbfounded. How could someone so young have white hair?

"Well, you might think this is weird," Ms. Bustier said to Yuri, "but he looks so extraordinary with that kind of hair."

"I agree," Rose added, "He’s so cute. Almost cute enough to kiss."

"You really think so?" Lincoln asked.

A small peck on his cheek answered him. Lincoln jumped in surprise. He looked beside him and became annoyed.

The one who kissed him was a girl around the same size and age as Lana, and looked just like her. Blonde hair. Two front teeth missing. Cute look. But the similarities ended there. Instead of pigtails, she had her hair worn down, with a tuft of hair on her head pointing to the right. Her attire consisted of a long pink gown and sash, a white pearl necklace, long pink gloves, white earrings, pink heels, and a black tiara on her head. In a nutshell, this was like a princess version of Lana.

"Lola! Why?!"

"She has a point, Lincoln. You do look cute."

"And so do you," Rose said to Lola.

"Aw, thanks." Then she looked at Alix. "Hey, Alix. Who’s the brunette with her mouth open?"

"This is my cousin, Yuri Tachibana."

"WHAT?!"

"No need to shout, Lola" Lincoln said. "But Alix, you didn’t tell me you had a cousin."

"Well, now you know."

"Was she with you during the incident eight years ago?"

"Yes," Yuri replied, "We were lucky to be close to a shelter. But Alix was trapped outside when Megaguirus attacked. I don’t know how she was able to survive, but when I saw her in one piece, I cried."

"It was a terrible incident" one of her friends added. "At least a dozen people were killed. Hundreds were injured. And it took almost a week to dispose of the burnt insect carcass."

"Ew!" Lola exclaimed.

"Burnt?" Alya asked. "You mean…"

"Godzilla killed it," Alix answered. "Two blasts of his atomic breath turned Megaguirus into a monstrous ball of fire."

"And Little Miss Hero here claimed she helped the beast," Jalil interrupted. "We pretended to accept it, but I find it highly implausible for that to happen. And she still believes it"

"Says the guy who cried for the entire plane ride back to Paris after seeing me alive."

"I couldn’t help it. I was worried."

"Well, if you must know, that was a big risk I took."

"Well, you might be worthy of becoming the 'Princess of Risks'" said Lana, whose sudden appearance spooked everyone.

"Lana," Lincoln exclaimed, "I almost thought you were Lucy."

"You called?" The girl in question said, scaring everyone with her sudden popup, which somehow had a crow cawing.

Lucy had very pale skin and long black hair that covered her eyes. She was thing, and slightly smaller than Lincoln. Her attire was black and white, wearing long striped arm sleeves and stockings, a black dress worn over a white shirt, and, you guessed it, black shoes.

"Glad to see my technique is rubbing off on you, Lana."

"Actually, Lucy, I just walked up to see what the hubbub was all about, and no one happened to notice me."

"Sigh. Sadly, no one here must like my spookiness."

"I do," said a voice. Lucy turned to see Juleka crouched at eye-level, smiling. "I wasn’t aware of someone else who was into gothic customs like me."

"You’re a goth, too?"

"Definitely, and it’s awesome."

"One question. Have you watched Vampires of Melancholia?"

"You mean that show with vampires? What goth wouldn’t watch that?"

"If I had a heart, it would be on the verge of happiness."

While this was going on, Yuri was busy admiring the twins. "You know something?" She said, "Even though you’re both different, you also look so cute."

Lola looked at her twin, who was busy picking her nose. She pulled out a booger-covered finger and stuck into her mouth. "You call that cute?" the girly twin replied.

"Frankly, yes."

"Well I’m glad I’m not like her."

"And I’m glad I’m not like her," Lana replied. Both twins gave each other a high-five.

"Well then," Lincoln interrupted, "guess I better bring in the rest of my family." And with that, the white-haired boy walked out of the restaurant.

"How many siblings does that kid have, Alix?" Yuri asked.

"Ten."

"Ten?!"

"I know. I was surprised, too. Perhaps his parents went a little bit overboard on the Circle of Life, if you know what I mean."

"We can hear you, you know!" Said Lucy, Lana, and Lola.

"Sorry."

After a few minutes, Lincoln returned with the rest of his family. To Yuri’s surprise, the siblings were all girls. What kind of family would have only one boy, and ten girls?

"Yuri," Lincoln began, "meet my family. First up, Lori."

"I literally don’t know why we even came to this restaurant in the first place," the blonde said. Lori was the tallest sibling and had long blonde hair. She wore a light blue tank top, brown cargo shorts, blue slip-on shoes, and blue eyeshadow. She was holding a blue phone, which she seemed to be texting on.

"Mom said this was closest to our location," Lana replied.

"Just as long as they have sushi, I’m fine. Even though I never actually tasted sushi before."

Suddenly, she found Chloe standing in front of her. This almost caused her to drop her phone. She was now looking into the sea-green eyes of whoever this girl was.

"Did you say you never tried sushi?" Chloe asked.

"Never," Lori nervously replied. "I only dreamed of trying it."

"Well, now’s your chance. Sit by me and I’ll order all the sushi you can eat."

"Really?"

"Of course. Besides, you kinda remind me of myself."

"I think I’d better check with mom, first."

"Don’t worry, I’m the daughter of the Mayor of Paris."

"What?"

"No need to gawk. Ms. Bustier, can Lori please sit with me?"

"It’s fine by me if it’s alright with her parents, Chloe."

"Mom," Lori asked her mother, Rita. She wore a pink buttoned shirt with a white collar and cuffs, and purple pants. She had big blonde hair and white earrings. She also wore blue eye shadow, red lipstick, and black low tops. Like Lincoln, she had bags under her eyes. "May I please sit Chloe?"

"I don’t see why not," she replied.

"Thanks! Come on, Chloe. Let’s find a seat."

"Sure thing, Lori."

As they walked to a nearby table, Ms. Bustier walked over to Rita. "I never seen Chloe this nice before. She must be happy to have someone that thinks just like her."

"She’s not the only one," Rita reminded. She pointed to Lucy, who was smiling with Juleka.

Next up was Leni Loud. She had long, pale-blonde hair, with side-swept bangs, and three pairs of eyelashes. As the second oldest Loud, she was almost as tall as Lori, but taller than the other siblings. Her outfit consisted off a sea-foam green dress, with white frills, and triangular sleeves. She also wore red hoop earrings, white sandals topped with light green bows, and a pair of rounded white sunglasses with black lenses on top of her head.

"Nice to meet you, Yuri. I’m Leni. My favorite color is zebra. My favorite food is lunch. I wear a special dress on days that don’t end in 'y'. And the secret to a great smile is…"

"Yeah, Leni kinda gets carried away," Lincoln interrupted, covering his sister’s mouth. "But she does have a great taste in fashion."

"Just like Marinette here," Alya said.

"Really?" Yuri asked.

"It’s true," Adrien agreed, "She made a feathered derby hat for my design show."

Marinette blushed when she heard that. She couldn’t believe Adrien would back her up. Did he know about her crush on him? Well, she did forget to put away her posters of him during the "Fill in my Shoes" show, and she did kiss him on Heroes’ Day. Maybe he might say yes. Hearts started to surround her.

"Creative, yes," Alix said, "But she can be a klutz."

"And a bit overreactive," Adrien added, before smirkingly looking at Marinette. That caused the hearts surrounding the lunette to shatter. She then looked away from the blond and whistled nonchalantly. The blond then turned his attention back to Yuri. "But she’s a good friend. I’m glad to have someone like her." Marinette looked back at her love with hearts in her eyes, before looking away when Adrien turned his attention on her.

"Sounds like Leni," Lincoln said, "Creative, klutzy, and very kind."

"Thanks, Linky," the airhead blonde said before looking at Marinette. "Come on, Marionette. Let’s go sit and talk about fashion designs."

"It’s Marinette, actually."

Leni started walking to a nearby table, hands pronated, and mouth grinning. But because her eyes were closed, she didn’t see a wall in front of her. Luckily, Marinette came and grabbed her right before she hit the wall.

"What?"

"Your welcome."

As the two fashion designers walked to their table, Lincoln introduced Luna, the rockstar of the family. Shorter than Leni, she had short brown hair styled into a pixie cut, freckles on her face, and light purple eyeshadow. She wore a purple t-shirt with a white skull, a torn crew neck, and triangular sleeves; a plaid, lavender skirt, a white belt, high purple boots, paperclip earrings, three black brackets around her wrists, and a choker around her neck. "Hello, Yuri. Ya into music?"

"Well, I do like some music. I’m interested in this high school band called 'After School Teatime.'"

"Sounds interesting. Maybe I can hear some of their songs."

Then came Luan. Two words: Full Prankster. She had prominent buck teeth, which sported silver braces on her upper and lower teeth, and light brown hair worn up in a large ponytail with a small swirl at the end by a yellow scrunchie, with two long protruding hairs sticking out from the center of her forehead. Her attire consisted of a white sleeveless shirt, a yellow skirt with a checkerboard pattern, yellow socks with a line pattern that are worn all the way up, and brown shoes. She also wore three pink flowers, one on her shirt, and one on each shoe, that served as gag squirt-flowers. "Nice to meet you, Yuri. Want to know how you sink a battleship?"

"How?"

"You put water in it. Hahahaha. Get it?"

The Loud siblings groaned at the joke. Yuri, meanwhile, giggled at the joke.

Next up was Lynn. "I didn’t know that Alix had a cousin. Are you into sports?"

"Well, no. I’m more into movie-making."

"Well, I hope you do sports movies. I’m into those things."

After Lynn came Lisa. For a four year old, Lisa looked like a scientist. She had short, shaggy brown hair and wore large glasses to help her see. She wore a green turtleneck sweater, pink pants, and brown shoes, somehow adding up to her stoic demeanor. "Greetings, human."

"Um," Yuri sputtered. "Hi?"

"Alright, we’re done," Lisa said as she walked to the table Leni and Marinette were sitting at.

"Sorry about Lisa," Lincoln said to Yuri. "She’s a bit antisocial."

Finally, there was Lily, the youngest Loud. She had a buck tooth and a tuft of blonde hair on her head. Because the Louds were out in public, Lily had to wear a lavender t-shirt and blue pants. Yuri found Lily to be cute.

Holding the baby Loud was the father, Lynn Sr. He had a long pointy nose, brown eyebrows, and curly brown hair thinning at the top. He wore a sea green sweater over a light green checkered collar and cuffs, brown slacks, and brown shoes. "Nice to meet you, Yuri. Say hi to Yuri, Lilster."

"Hi, Ui."

The brunette giggled at the remark. She then looked at Alix’s classmates and the rest of the Loud siblings. They seemed to be well alike in their own way.

"Pops," Luna asked her father, "can we sit down with Alix’s class?"

"Well…"

"I’m fine with it," Mrs. Bustier answered. "Class, feel free to sit with the Louds and chat." She then looked at the parents. "I guess we can chat, too. If you want."

"I’m fine with that," Rita answered.

"I’m going to sit with Yuri," Alix told her teacher. "Keep up to date with what’s been going on with each of us."

"Well, she’s your cousin, Alix. I’m quite alright with that."

——————————————————————

As Alix sat next to Yuri, the rest of the class, and Louds, were sitting at a table opposite of them, and sat next to who they thought had similar interests with them. Ms. Bustier sat with Rita and Lynn Sr. (who was holding Lily), Lisa sat with Max, Lila, and Kagami; Lola sat with Rose, Lana with Nino, Marc and Nathaniel; Lucy with Juleka, Lincoln with Adrien, Lynn with Kim, Luan with Manon, Luna with Luka, Leni with Marinette and Alya, and Lori with Chloe and Sabrina. The two blondes were busy munching away on sushi.

"It’s so delicious," the oldest Loud sibling replied.

"Told you," the daughter of the mayor replied, "I always order sushi for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a delicacy."

"But don’t you order anything else? Like escargot?"

"Nope?"

"Baguettes? Pastries?"

"Pastries, no. Baguettes, sometimes. But it’s only just long bread."

"What about pizza?"

Chloe almost choked on her mouthful when she heard that word. She swallowed and looked angrily at Lori. "Why would I even order that peasant food?"

"Why wouldn’t you? I’m the oldest, yet I eat pizza almost every night."

Chloe’s anger dissipated into curiosity. She hadn’t figured out why she didn’t order pizza. Maybe it was because she felt superior to her peers.

"Well, when I get back to Paris, the first thing I’m going to do is order some pizza. With anchovies."

"Let me guess. Because you like sushi."

The two blondes laughed in happiness. Meanwhile, Sabrina watched in curiosity. Chloe had never been this friendly before. The others, meanwhile, were busy chatting about their hobbies.

"Leni," Marinette asked, "why are you into fashion?"

"I, like, do it creativity. It’s something I’m into. What about you?"

"Same reason as you."

"But she mostly does it for Adrien, right?" Alya said.

"Alya!"

"Sorry, Juliet."

——————————————————————

"Mick Swagger, eh?" Luka said to Luna, "I’ve heard of him. He was in Paris last week. People said he rocked."

"That’s Mick Swagger for you, dude," Luna said. "Any famous musician you like?"

"Jagged Stone. Legend."

"Bro, that’s totally rocking. Probably as good as Mick Swagger."

"Maybe."

"How do you get a one-armed man out of a tree?" Luan asked Manon.

"How?" The toddler asked.

"You wave!" The two giggled while the rest of Luan’s siblings groaned. "Now it’s your turn."

"Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side."

Luan frowned. "That joke’s been overused a lot. No wonder it’s at the bottom of the 'pecking' order. Get it?"

Once again, the two laughed. And once again, the siblings groaned.

"So Lynn," Kim asked, "What sport are you good at?"

"All of them," the sporty brunette replied, "I have a championship gaming system called FLIBBR."

"FLIBBR?"

"Football. Lacrosse. Ice Hockey. Baseball. Basketball. Roller Derby."

"Unbelievable. You’re like the queen of sports."

"I prefer champ. Queen is too girly for my taste."

"So, how do you manage to live in a large family?" The blond asked.

"It takes some time, but you get used to it," Lincoln responded. "What about you?"

"I’m an only child. My mother disappeared. And my father hasn’t been the same ever since."

"I’m sorry to hear that."

"He’s very stressed and protective. And it feels like he’s hiding something."

"Well, he’s your dad. He’s probably worried of losing you. Maybe you can work something out. Take the stress off him."

"Thanks, Lincoln. You’re so inspiring."

——————————————————————

"What’s your favorite part of Vampires of Melancholia?" Juleka asked Lucy.

"Edwin, of course. I have a bust of him with me. Sigh. Sadly, I couldn’t bring it in."

"Well, maybe you can show to me before you leave."

"Are you girls talking about VoM?" Lori asked.

"Groan," Lucy groaned, "I wish you’d stop calling it that."

"You’re interested in vampires, too?" Chloe asked, creeped out.

"Of course not," Lori responded. "I’m interested in this guy in the show named Blake Bradley."

"Wait, the Blake Bradley?"

"Yes!"

"I’ve heard about him. He starred in a French Movie I loved. He’s incredible."

"I know, right?!"

"Groan!" Lucy groaned again.

"And this affects you, how?" Sabrina asked.

"Lori and Leni only watch it because of Blake," the gothic Loud replied, "But they’re my sisters. So as long as they’re happy, I’m happy."

——————————————————————

"So, how do you avoid being mistaken for a boy?" Nino asked Lana.

"Pigtails, duh. I may play in the mud and eat worms, but I still feel like I should at least look like a girl."

"Do you always play in the mud?"

"Of course not," Lola joined in. "Sometimes, she likes to help out dad with chores. She’s an experienced mechanic and plumber."

"Really?" Nino said before turning to Lana. "Bet you’re great around the house."

"And proud of it," the tomboy replied.

Lola then focused her attention on Rose. "Have you ever tried out for a pageant?"

"I haven’t. They’re very crowded. I mainly stick to music and drawing."

"Just like us," Nathaniel said from across the table with Marc. They were busy drawing their next comic.

"I know how you feel," Lola said. "When I entered my first pageant, I was scared and nervous. But I got the hang of it."

"Good for you," Rose said. "If you can do it, maybe I can too."

"If you want to start a pageant," Lila said, "I can help you. I’ve won many pageants."

Suddenly, she heard a beeping sound. The brunette looked behind her to see Lisa holding a device. It looked like a Nintendo DS, but with a red light attached to it.

"What’s that?"

"My Fib Feeler," Lisa replied. "It blinks when it senses a lie."

"So, that means…"

"Affirmative. You’re lying, Lila."

"So, you haven’t won any pageants?" Rose asked.

"Only one," the Italian girl truthfully admitted.

"Well, maybe you can teach me. Once we get back to Paris, that is."

"Of course."

Meanwhile, Max looked at the device with great awe. "Amazing. For a four year old, your creative skills are off the charts."

"You’d be surprised about Lisa," Lana said. "She has a college degree, was nominated in chemistry, and has at least three robots."

"Three?"

"Correct, my fellow hominid. Three workable, robotic units. There’s Friendbot 1000, Mr. Reinforced Titanium Alloy Arms, and Todd."

"Todd?"

"What? Despite my large cranial capacity, even I can’t resist taking shortcuts. Plus, it sounded catchy."

"Is there anything you can’t do?"

"Negatory. Except for the fact I’m not allowed to hold a butter knife."

"Is that why I’m cutting your food for you?" Kagami asked. She was, indeed, using her knife to cut Lisa’s food.

"Technically speaking, yes. I’m also interested in how you were able to adapt to your current habitat after migrating from your former territory."

"Nani?"

"How did manage to handle moving to Paris from Japan?"

"Well, it was tough at first. The people. The city. Everything. It was so… different. I was afraid. Stressed. I didn’t know if I could fit in."

"Classic neophobia symptoms."

"But then, I met Adrien. And he helped me adapt to my new life in Paris."

"Normally, I don’t care for these obsolete human emotions, but…" Lisa then took out a tissue and blew her nose with it. Tears filled her eyes and she sniffled. "…that was so beautiful."

"Arigato."

Meanwhile, Marinette had heard the whole thing. "Isn’t Adrien the greatest?" She said to herself.

"Uh…?" Leni said.

"Let’s not interrupt her, Leni," Alya said. "It takes a few minutes for her to snap out of her Adrien moment."

——————————————————————

"You sure have an interesting class, Ms. Bustier," Rita said.

"And you sure have a big family, Mrs. Loud."

"Well, according to Lincoln, we wouldn’t trade for the world."

"Poo-poo," Lily agreed.

——————————————————————

"Really?!" Alix asked.

"That’s what he said," Yuri answered. She was telling Alix about her meeting with her boss. "As I told my friends, 'As a woman, you’re expected to do as told.'"

"I’m happy for you being who you are. Another boy in the family and I’d ask my father to disown me."

"Hey!" Jalil shouted from the other side.

"Joking!" Alix responded. She then turned to Yuri. "Seriously, Yuri, it’s just best for you to do what he says until he decides it’s time for the company to produce an 'actual' documentary. It’s not like the answer to your lament is going to walk through the door."

Alix was wrong. Yuri heard a man saying "good evening" to someone and turned to find out who it was. A young man with short black hair and glasss. He wore a black suit over a plaid-shirt, and with dull-colored jeans and black shoes. He was slightly taller than Yuri. And he appeared to be walking towards their table.

"Um, cuz. We have a visitor."

The man walked over to the right side of the table. Alix felt uncomfortable, while Yuri was delighted to see him.

"You got my message," the brunette said to the man. "So?"

"I’m afraid no one believes about the story about the moving epicenter," he said. He took out a bag with a book in it and gave it Yuri. "But…"

As Yuri opened the bag, she read the cover of the book. The title translated into "The Guardian Monsters" in English. Yuri was confused, and so was Alix.

"This book might contain clues to what happened yesterday," the man said. "The context in here is very interesting and mysterious." He then looked at Alix. "Who’s she?"

"I’m Alix. Yuri’s cousin from Paris."

"Sorry, it’s just that Yuri mentioned she had a cousin in Europe. But I never thought it was you."

"Well, now you know. Right, Yuri? Yuri?"

She looked at her cousin. Her face showed expressions of shock and curiosity. Alix then looked at the book she was reading, and couldn’t believe her eyes. On the pages Yuri was reading were pictures of three, outlandish creatures. One was a dragon with three heads, two tails, and fours legs, with the forelimbs having wings like a bat. The second creature resembled a dinosaur with a nasal horn and big ears, and bumps which resembled rose petals. And the final creature looked like a butterfly or moth, but not like any she saw.

"Alix?" Jalil asked. He stood up and walked to where Alix was sitting. He then looked at the pictures and gasped.

"What is it?" The man asked.

"Those creatures…" Jalil began. "They… they…"

"They resemble the pictures on my amulet," Alix finished. She took out her amulet and showed it to the man. "I found this during the Megaguirus attack in 2002 by the Daiba Nursery. I didn’t know what the pictures meant, until now."

Yuri looked at the amulet, then at the book. "They have similar pictures. The symbols of the creatures next to the orbs…"

"…must represent the Guardian Monsters. This amulet must be linked to them."

"Then listen to this," the man said, "the dinosaur with ears is called Baragon. The insect is called Mothra. And the three-headed dragon is called Ghidorah."

"Baragon, Mothra, and Ghidorah. The Guardian Monsters." Alix then took a look at the orbs each symbol was next to. "What do the orbs represent?"

"According to the book, the monsters are worshipped as gods. Baragon is known as the 'The God of the Earth'. Mothra is the 'God of the Sea.' And Ghidorah is the 'God of the Sky.'"

"Earth, sea, and sky." Jalil memorized the thoughts in his head.

"Does the book say anything about the foot next to the shadow?" Alix asked, "Or the dinosaur that looks like Godzilla?"

Yuri quickly flipped through the pages. "No. There’s nothing in here about any of those."

"Well, we know what the orbs and the symbols next to them stand for," Jalil said, trying to cheer his sister up.

And it worked…

…just a bit.

Alix was still curious on what the symbol of the foot and dinosaur meant. Could it be linked to Godzilla? Or was it something entirely different?

——————————————————————
6:00 P.M.
——————————————————————

After everyone finished their meals, they all walked out of the restaurant feeling content. Well, almost everyone. Alix was still concerned about the amulet. Yuri, meanwhile, had accidentally become drunk and had a hard time moving on her own. So the man who gave her the book decided to give her a ride home in a taxi.

"I’m sorry about my cousin, Mr…"

"Takeda. Teruaki Takeda."

"Sorry, Mr. Takeda. I hope she wasn’t too much trouble."

"Are you that guy Yuri talks about as a boyfriend?" Jalil asked.

"No, I’m not her boyfriend. I’m just a friend trying to help her."

"Sorry about that."

"It’s fine. Almost everyone gets me confused as her boyfriend."

"Alix," Ms. Bustier called out, "time to go."

"Guess we’ll have to say goodbye to Yuri, Alix," Jalil said.

Just then, Alix had an idea. "Maybe we don’t."

"What?"

"Stay here," the pink-haired girl said to her brother and Takeda. She walked over to her teacher and her class. "Ms. Bustier, can we please sleep at Yuri’s house tonight? Her father, my uncle, would be proud to see us."

"While I’m aware of how much you miss her, I don’t want you and your brother to get lost and miss the class assignment."

"Who said it was just me and Jalil?"

"Wait, you mean?"

"Why not let the whole class sleep at my uncle’s house for the remainder of our field trip?"

"I’m not sure if he’ll be happy to have a whole class sleep in his house for six days."

"Don’t worry. I’ll take full responsibility of it."

"Okay, Alix. You win. But I’m not sure if all of us can fit into a cab."

Alix then looked at the Louds, who were getting into Vanzilla, the family van. She then smirked. She had another idea.

——————————————————————
Tachibana Apartment Residence
6:30 P.M.
——————————————————————

Takeda guided the drunk Yuri through the entrance of the apartment and to her uncle’s door. Alix and Jalil followed suit. Then, the door opened, and out came Tazio Tachibana. He hadn’t changed since Alix last saw him. He was wearing a white buttoned shirt and black trousers.

Takeda looked at him nervously, then at Yuri. "I just brought Yuri home, sir," he stuttered.

"Thank you," Tazio replied calmly, "I’m very grateful."

Yuri then opened her eyes and saw her father. "Daughter Yuri reporting for duty," She drunkly joked.

"I don’t find any of this funny," her father replied. He then looked at Takeda. "I’m sorry for all the trouble." Then, he saw Alix and Jalil standing behind Takeda. "Alix? Jalil?"

"Konnichiwa, Senpai," Alix greeted.

"Hi, uncle," Jalil said.

Alix walked over to her uncle, who responded by giving her a big hug. "I missed you very much."

"Me too. I haven’t seen you for eight years."

"Why are you here?"

"I’ve came here on a class field trip."

That’s when Tazio released Alix from his embrace. "And where is your class?"

"That’s the thing. I asked my teacher if they could sleep here for the remaining six days. I promised I would take full responsibility. I promise if anything goes wrong, I’ll do anything in my power to make it up to you.”

"Alix, you’re still as brave and responsible as ever."

"So?"

"I guess it can’t hurt me if I don’t say no."

"So that means…"

"I’d be happy to allow your class to sleep here for six days. Just make sure they don’t do anything foolish."

"Arigato, Uncle Tazio."

"So, where’s your class?"

——————————————————————

Alix showed her uncle Vanzilla, where her class and the Louds were waiting for the stamp of approval.

"They’re all in there?"

"Yes, and I think they won’t like staying in there for much longer."

"Well, let them out."

"Okay, but stand back."

"Why?"

"I’d wouldn’t want to get hurt in the avalanche."

"What avalanche?"

Alix and Jalil opened the back doors of Vanzilla. Just as they did, an avalanche of Alix’s classmates and the Loud siblings fell out onto the parking lot. Manon and Lily were on the top of the heap of exhausted and bruised students.

"That avalanche," Alix answered. "So?"

"You didn’t tell me how many students were in your class. And who’s the baby?"

"That’s Lily. She’s from the family who offered their van to give us a ride here."

"I’m sorry, Alix. But I don’t think my apartment room can fit all of them." Alix looked at her classmates, depressed. "But, that doesn’t mean I won’t accept them."

"Really?"

"Of course. Some of them can sleep in our room. The rest can sleep in the two rooms above us. They’ve been vacant for three years. No one has ever bought either of them."

"Sounds like a deal," Ms. Bustier said from the pile.

——————————————————————

As soon as everyone else managed to free themselves from the pile, they introduced themselves to Tazio and made plans on who would sleep where. Along with Alix and Jalil, Lincoln, Lana, Lucy, Lisa, Juleka, Marinette, Sabrina, Manon, Nathaniel, and Marc would sleep in the Tachibana residence. Meanwhile, Rita, Lynn, Kim, Alya, Rose, Lola, Leni, Kagami, Mylene, and Ivan would sleep in the room to the left. Lynn Sr., Luna, Luka, Lori, Chloe, Luan, Max, Lila, Nino, Adrien, Ms. Bustier, and Lily would sleep in the room to the right.

Yuri had already been put to bed after Tazio agreed to Alix’s request. Alix and Jalil decided to sleep with her. Just to be safe. Manon, Lincoln, Lana, Marinette, Marc and Nathaniel slept in the living room, while Lucy, Juleka and Lisa slept in Tazio’s room(as they were the quietest of the group).

It wasn’t long before everyone was sound asleep. Well, almost everyone. Lana prayed to God that he keep her animals safe until she came back. They were being watched over by Bobby Santiago, Lori’s boyfriend. And let’s just say he was having difficulty.

——————————————————————
8:30 P.M.
——————————————————————

Just two hours later, and everyone was fast asleep. Yuri was starting to feel better, as her body was getting rid of the alcohol in her body. It seemed as if everything would be fine.

But, it wouldn’t.

Just a few seconds later, Marinette sleepily opened her eyes. She had woken up for a glass of water. The lunette tiptoed to the kitchen to get a drink. Her purse hung on the coatrack. Suddenly, something phased through it. It was 4 inches tall, and resembled a ladybug, with two antennae, and a large black spot on its forehead, back, on each side of its head. But it lacked wings and flaps, had a mouth like other vertebrates, and had three, feathered tips vertically aligned. This was Tikki, Marinette’s kwami and best friend.

"Evening, Tikki," Marinette whispered.

The kwami yawned and looked at her friend. "Evening, Marinette," she replied silently. Her voice sounded hoarse, even though she was whispering.

"You sound parched," the lunette said, "I was just helping myself to a glass of water. You can have some if you like."

"Thanks."

Marinette picked out a glass cup from the cupboard and put it in the sink, under the faucet. She turned it on and the cup with filled to the rim with water. Then, she turned off and let Tikki take a big sip of water. After the kwami was done, the lunette picked up the cup and chugged down the rest of the water until the cup was empty. Then she filled the cup with more water and left it in the sink. Then she tiptoed back to her sleeping place.

Or she would’ve… had it not been for one thing…

Marinette soon felt like she was being watched. She looked to her left and almost gasped. Watching her from the window was a young girl. She had bright pink hair done in cone-shaped odangos that resembled rabbit ears with puffy pigtails, and red eyes. She appeared to be wearing a white, short-sleeved sailor fuku with single white linings at the ends of her sleeves, a blue pleated skirt, and white socks and shoes. She had four red bows on her, one on the center of her fuku, one on the back of her skirt, and two on the front of her shoes. The girl waved to her then dashed off into the night.

"Did you that?" Marinette asked her kwami quietly, only to realize she wasn’t there. "Tikki?"

"Sorry, Marinette," The kwami said as she phased through the purse again, "But you know I can’t be seen by other humans except for Master Fu."

"It’s alright, Tikki." The lunette then looked back out the window. "That child must be lost. It’s not safe for children to be out at this hour. I have to find her, then bring her back to her house."

"And by you, you mean 'Ladybug', right?"

"You always know what I mean, Tikki." The lunette then tiptoed to the door, then she opened it very slowly and quietly. After she and her kwami were outside, she quietly closed the door and rushed onto the parking lot. She took a peak around to see if anyone was out. She didn’t want to be spotted.

Thankfully, no one was outside at the moment.

"Time to transform, Tikki," Marinette said. Soon, her blacks earrings suddenly sparked and turned red. "Tikki, spots on!" The lunette said as she brushed her left earring. Tikki flew into it and the five black dots appeared on the earring, giving off the pattern of a five-spotted ladybug. Marinette then brought her hands to her face and brushed them on it as a red mask with five black spots on it, symmetrical in design, formed around her eyes. Then, she spun around as a red suit with blacks spots on it formed over her body. A ladybug-themed yo-yo materialized on her hips. Red strings sprouted from her ponytails. She was now "Ladybug", the defender of Paris.

Ladybug took out her yo-yo and swung it at a ventilation shaft on another building, which coiled around it like a grappling hook. Then, she let the yo-yo pull herself up to the roof of the building. Once she reached it, the yo-yo untangled itself, and Ladybug put it away for the moment. She scanned her surroundings for any sign of the pink-haired girl.

Suddenly, she caught a glimpse of something running down the street. It was small and had pink hair.

"Bingo," Ladybug said.

Suddenly, the child took out a round object that looked like a cat’s head, with an antenna. Then, the girl bounced it, and the ball burst into a puff of smoke, before it turned into a small biplane. Ladybug couldn’t believe what she was seeing. 'An akumatized villain?' She thought. The girl got in the plane and started it up. Ladybug quickly took out her yo-yo and started swinging it like a lasso. As the plane took off into the sky, the masked lunette threw her yo-yo at it, grappling it around the hind wheel. She held on tight to the string as she was pulled up into the air by the plane. If this was an akumatized villain, she had to stop her.

Chapter 2. The First Guardian, Reunion, And A Giant Pink-haired Girl
Mt. Myoko, Niigata Prefecture, Japan. June 15, 2010.
3:10 P.M.
————————————————————

After recovering from the event that happened eight years ago, Japan was finally free from the wrath of Kaiju. Despite some attacks in some areas, these were only from villains who wanted to conquer Earth. Yet they were dealt with by the Sailor Guardians and their leader, Sailor Moon. The only challenge for these girls was the King of the Monsters: Godzilla. Thankfully, no one had seen Godzilla for over a decade, and presumed that he either died or went into hibernation. Despite this, the Japanese continued to live life free from monsters. But that didn’t stop some to make it look like monsters were still roaming Japan.

At the foot of Mt. Myoko, near a large estuary, stood Yuri Tachibana and a film crew. Like the majority of the populace, she survived the attack of Megaguirus and Godzilla. Now twenty years old, Yuri had decided join Bridgestone Digital Q, a TV station notorious for making low-budget mockumentary films. The company wasn’t well praised for its work, but at least they did make money. It was a first step for Yuri towards filmmaking, even if the films she was in were just fake.

Today, the company was doing a fake documentary about a supposed monster living in the area. As the camera turned to the redhead, the director gave the action signal to Yuri. She spoke into a microphone as the crew started recorded the scene.

"Traditionally, Mount Myoko was thought to be the gateway to the lost world. We’re here to solve a mystery as old as the mountain itself, and that mystery concerns the monster of the mountain.”

Just out of sight of the camera, the director quietly moved to a boy wearing a orange cap. A pat on his shoulder gave him his cue. The boy hurled a rock he held in his hand as hard as he could. It splashed into the lake, causing Yuri and the cameraman to turn to the sound. The camera caught ripples made when the rock landed in the lake, making it appear as something had dove down to the depths after being startled. The camera then turned to Yuri as she quickly faced the camera.

"What was that?! The monster?!”

"And cut" the director said after checking his watch. The success didn’t last long, though. Two men, one carry a blue folder with paper in it, came walking out of the forest angry.

"Stop shooting! You hear me!" One of men, the village headman, shouted. "You said you were doing a documentary, not some fake news."

"Call it docudrama if you like" the director responded. "We have a permit to film here."

"Not anymore you don’t!" The headman detested.

"I’ve looked up your company. Specialized in low budget drama films. Favorites include ESP and alien sightings" His partner replied.

"We don’t want your kind ruining the reputation of honest villages. Now scram, you dil-weeds."

"Please don’t be like that, sir" Yuri pleaded to the headman. "Think of the kids. They love stories about ghosts and monsters. In the states, there are stories of witches that made some of the villages famous worldwide. Godzilla could do that, too. If Godzilla did come here, think of it: everyone in Japan would want to come here."

"And if he doesn’t come…"

Before Yuri could answer, an earthquake struck the area. Everyone panicked as some lost their balance and fell. Yuri held onto the headman and vice versa. A nearby tree fell over on its side. Thankfully, it fell in the opposite direction from the people. As the earthquake subsided, a bloodcurdling road echoed across the terrain, heard by all. Thankfully, no one was hurt during the quake.

"It’s alright" Yuri said to the still-shaking headman. "It’s over."

"Gee, that was something."

"So may we continue filming?"

"Sure, go ahead. Your film’s going to attract thousands of tourists."

As the crew celebrated, the headman and his assistant left. Yuri was proud. The quake miraculously was the company’s big break. As the crew began to get ready for the next scene, Yuri looked at the forest. Suddenly, her expression turned dark.

Watching her from the forest was an old man. Yuri assumed he just got lost from the quake and accidentally stumbled upon them by mistake. She looked at her director, who was busy comforting the headman.

'No use interrupting him about this' She thought. When she looked back at the forest, the man was gone. It was like he vanished into thin air. 'Did I just see a ghost? No, it can’t be.' But Yuri still believed she saw a ghost, and kept it to herself.

————————————————————
10:45 P.M.
————————————————————

The headman was now in his car, chatting to his wife about the day. He was happy now knowing that the village would be famous after the film would be released.

"I even got interviewed on camera."

"Who knows" his wife said. "You might even become a movie star."

This cheerful moment didn’t last, however, as something leapt onto the hood on their car, spooking them. It took only a few seconds for the couple to realize that it was only a Japanese Serow. A member of the bovine species, they normally wandered into the village and got along well with the local goats and cattle. Luckily, they posed no threat.

The serow sensed danger and hopped off the car before running into the forest. As the couple watched, another serow ran in front of their car. Then another. And another. Before long, a stampede of serows came into view. They ran around the car, some leaping onto the hood and roof before leaping back down and running into the forest. The headman and his wife huddled as the hoofed herbivores kept coming.

It wasn’t long before the stampede disappeared into the forest. As the couple looked beyond the trees, a whistling snort caused them to look at the direction the serows came from. One individual had been left behind, and was running to keep up with the herd. Chasing it was a Red Fox, one of the serows natural predators. As the serow leapt onto the hood, the fox pounced onto it and both fell off the car onto the pavement. As the serow recovered, the fox managed to cut off its escape path. The headman watched as his hopes of the village being famous were slipping away. If tourists saw a carcass on the parking lot, they would think the village wouldn’t be safe enough.

Thankfully, that fear never came true as a gang of motorcyclists arrived, honking their horns and vrooming their motors. The noise caused the fox to abandon its hunt and run into the forest, with the dizzy serow following close behind. However, during their escape, one of the serow’s hooves clipped a loose rock, causing it to roll downhill into a statue, crashing into it. The statue’s head broke off and rolled alongside the rock before coming to a stop at the bottom of the hill. This shocked the headman majorly.

"Did you see that? The shrine’s wrecked."

The motorcyclists soon surrounded the car, with one man knocking on the roof. The wife lowered the window as the man stuck his head into the car. Fortunately for her, it was her daredevil son.

"Hey, Mom. Paps. I’ve heard our village is going to be famous soon. I told my biker gang about it and they decided to check out the monster. You don’t mind, do you?"

"Of c-course not, son" the headman said. He was still shocked about the statue. It had been in the village for a long time and served as a shrine, according to the headman. But the cost for repairing the statue wouldn’t be the only issue the village would have to face. There was another BIG purpose the statue served, and I mean BIG.

On a freeway that runs by the village, a truck driver was on his way home after a long day’s work. He reached the tunnel he drove through multiple times when doing his job, but tonight would be different. Another earthquake struck the area. This time, it was bigger than the last one.

Back at the village, the quake caused those still on the motorcycles to serve. Some couldn’t cope with the shaking and fell off their bikes or crash into other motorcyclists. The headman’s son ordered the gang to stop. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

"We’ll wait out here until the quake subsides. Nothing bad can happen out here."

Well it was true for the village, at the tunnel, the driver was about to get the shock of his life. He pressed on the brakes, stopping right outside the tunnel. Suddenly, loose cement and concrete rained onto the road as the tunnel caved in. From his cab, the driver could see the left side of the tunnel burst outwards as a large head appeared from the hole. From the light, he could tell whatever it was, it had big ears, large eyes, a nasal horn, and a big mouth full of sharp teeth. The creature looked at the truck and growled at it, making a sound similar to a leopard. Clearly, it didn’t like bright lights. The truck driver leapt out of his truck, only to trip and land on his rear. He looked at the gargantuan creature and screamed in fear.

————————————————————
June 16, 2010
10:45 A.M.
————————————————————

The next morning, the tunnel was blocked by twenty tons of rock, cement, concrete and dirt. The roads to the tunnels were closed for safety protocols. Only JSDF members were allowed to enter the blocked off area.

To clear the rubble, the JSDF were using a Taiho, a modified army truck equipped with twin cannons joined together. The ammo for that cannon were newly built weapons: D-03 missiles. Designed for detonation only after the boring mechanism has shut down, they were the only drilling tools available. The military had to be very careful when operating on these. One wrong move and the results could be catastrophic.

First, the missile was carefully lifted out of their crates and loaded into one of the slots of the cannon. Next, the cannon was aimed at the blockage. One of the men used a microscope-like object to guide the cannon to aim it at a specific area in the blockage. After finding a suitable area, the general was informed and ordered to open fire.

The Taiho cannon fired the missile. During flight, the cover of the drill broke off as the D-03 jettisoned itself from the lower half of the missile as it landed perfect on its target. The supports extended and grabbed hold of the rock as the weapon got to work drilling through the dirt and rock quickly. The mission was going smoothly, but some were worried about the weapon’s use.

"And will it explode once inside?" A concerned officer asked a soldier. "What if the explosion’s to strong?"

"Don’t worry about it…" the soldier replied. "It’s all under control. You did say there was a witness, right?"

Inside a black van, the truck driver, huddled in a blanket, was shaking like the quake last night. He was too frightened to speak of what he saw. But when the soldier came, he was able to stutter out the description of the creature.

"It… had a big… head… and a big… mouth… filled with r-razor… s-s-sharp… teeth."

"And you said the thing was alive?"

"Yeah… Godzilla… It’s Godzilla!"

Chapter 1. Memories: The Past
Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. July 28, 2002.
7:35 P.M.
————————————————————

Another beautiful night in the Shibuya Ward in Tokyo. People were going from work to home, while traffic continued at a steady pace. Surrounding the busy Shibuya station was the commercial store, and to the East Gate, the Tokyu Department Store. This was the hottest area for nightlife in Japan. Seven year old Alix Kubdel strolled along the streets with her brother, Jalil Kubdel, her uncle, Tazio Tachibana, and Yuri Tachibana, her uncle's daughter and Alix's cousin. Alix had blue eyes and pink hair tied up into a ponytail. She wore a small sailor fuku, red tie, green skirt, and black shoes. The pinkette was visiting Japan with her brother and father to see her uncle and cousin for a week. So far, it went fine. Alix was especially fascinated to hear her uncle's stories about his job at the JSDF, the battles he fought in, and Yuri's feelings to a teenage male at her school, much to the latter's embarrassment. Of course, what made Alix, Jalil, and Yuri hang on the edge of their seats was his tales about the King of the Monsters, Godzilla.

Godzilla, as Tazio describes him, was a radioactive dinosaur mutated by atomic bombs tested on deserted islands by the Manhattan project in 1950. He stands 60 meters tall, is 85 meters from nose to tail, and weighs around 30,000 metric tons. His skin is rough, with charcoal black scales, and has 60 smooth, bone-white plates running down his back. He has four fingered hands, with each finger ending in sharp claws, and three-toed feet, each toe sporting strong, sharp, and white talons, with a vestigial claw; similar to a bird’s foot. Because of being mutated with radioactive energy, he's able to spew a blue and white, streamlined, focused beam of atomic energy, obliterating anything it touches. He knew all this because of what he saw in 1954, when Godzilla first rose up from Tokyo Bay.

Tazio was a man in his fifties. He stood at an average height, had short black hair, and a short black black mustache. He wore a silver short-sleeved shirt, black shorts, and black slip-on shoes.

"The sky was blood red, filled with smoke billowing from the burnt remains of wherever he laid death and destruction," Tazio said to his daughter, niece, and nephew. "And through it, a devil appeared, it's face twisted with rage and hatred!"

Alix shivered. Well, it was actually Jalil shivering in fear, hugging the pinkette closely near him while they walked along, his vibrations made Alix shake, too. That didn't last long, however, as he released his grip on his sister.

Jalil was a bit taller than Alix, with chin-length reddish-brown hair and dark blue eyes. He had glasses, an orange scarf, a plaid shirt under a blue jacket, crimson pants, white socks, and black shoes.

"If it hadn't been for JSDF, that monster would've taken over the world." The young man continued. "He would've enslaved us, forcing us to work everyday, and making us do… HOMEWORK!"

Alix giggled at her uncle's joke. She liked his bravery and experience as well as his humor.

In reality, however, Godzilla wasn't killed by the JSDF, and wasn't even trying to take over the world. It, in fact, was a victim of nuclear warfare, and attacked humanity as an act of revenge. It was only by the combined might of the JSDF and Dr. Serizawa's Oxygen Destroyer that finally ended the mutated creature's rampage and killed him.

However, in the years that followed, more and more creatures like Godzilla emerged from beneath the Earth, from the ocean depths, and from outer space. It wasn't until 1984 that another member of Godzilla's kind emerged and ravaged Japan in attempt to avenge its fallen. The creature, however, was lured back into the ocean before it could cause more damage. Since then, it remained under the depths of the ocean, and hadn't attacked since.

"Some say," Tazio continued, "that the first Godzilla's spirit still lurks around the streets of Japan, looking for children to take back with him beneath the waves, and force them to worship him everyday."

"No way!" Yuri replied. She was around ten years old and had chin-length, reddish-brown hair. Her attire consisted of a pink v-neck t-shirt, a blue skirt, and white flip-flops with a red strap.

"I'll fight him," Alix chirped. "I'll make sure he'll never make anyone worship him. I want to be like you, Uncle."

"Well then," Tazio whispered "First you'll have to face the… Tickle Monster!"

Alix laughed as she ran around her uncle, trying to avoid being tickled, until Yuri and Jalil joined in. The tomboy dashed straight pass the others, and turned left into an alley. While the others followed her, she stopped and taunted them before continuing running. The fun, however, ended when Alix stepped into a large puddle, splashing water all over her shoes, pants, shirt and face. Her pursuers stopped three feet behind her, and observed the puddle.

"That's one big puddle of water," Alix commented.

"It wasn't raining today," Jalil said, breaking the silence.

"Then how'd it get here?" Alix asked.

"Maybe someone dropped a bucket of water accidentally."

"From up there?" Alix pointed at the building next to them.

"Not up," Tazio answered, pointing down at his feet. "Down."

Everyone looked beneath them. Indeed, the water was spouting up from beneath the sewers.

"A clog?"

"A damaged sewer pipe?"

"None that I know of," Tazio said, worriedly. "Come on, Alix. Let's get you back to the apartment and get you a new change of clothes."

"Arigato, Uncle Tazio," Alix exclaimed, jumping for joy. She skipped out of the alleyway with her uncle, brother, and cousin behind her.

By the time the four had headed out of the alley and back to Tazio's apartment, a shadow emerged from the corner of a building. Soon, a enormous insect emerged from the shadows. It was 2 meters long, and weighed around 500 lbs. The insect was light brown in color, had spiky and smooth skin, compound eyes, black lines around its three segments, two mantis-like pincers, six legs with two claws on each foot, antennae, a fanged mandible with hair underneath, and a pair of wings folded on its back. This was Meganulon, a species of insect related to dragonflies and damselflies that survived the Carboniferous by hibernating under the Earth's surface for 300,000,000 years. Like Godzilla, they were also affect by the Manhattan Project's bomb. The tremor caused by the explosion awoken them, and radiation mutated the creatures from half-a-meter long arthropod eagles, to the Kaiju like creatures we're familiar with.

Behind the first giant arthropod, five more came out from the dark. Three were Meganulons, while the other two resembled brown dragonflies, except they had mantis-like pincers on their front limbs, and a stinger on their tails. These were Meganula. Adult Meganulons. And they were preparing for a hunt.

————————————————————
3 Minutes Later
————————————————————

Two blocks away from where the sewers were flooding, a young man named Koji entered an area near a barrier fence for a dig site. As he sat down and listened to music, he pulled out a lighter to smoke on a cigarette. Suddenly, something bumped against the fence, caused it to vibrate. However, Koji's headphones blocked out the sounds, so he couldn't hear anything else.

Just then, a Meganulon bursted through the barrier and attacked Koji, who screamed once he saw it. The arthropod secured the man with its pincers, ensuring that there was no chance of escape. The creature then opened it mandibles and loomed downward onto its victim. Koji's headphones fell to the ground, as the bug continued its assault.

Just fifteen seconds after that, Koji's girlfriend appeared with drinks for her and her boyfriend. She then saw his headphones on the ground, and, while holding her cup between her teeth and putting Koji's drink down, picked them up. They were covered in a gooey-like substance, which frightened her(causing her to drop her cup in the process). As she turned around, the same Meganulon appeared again, and attacked her. She screamed and wailed as it grabbed her with its tail and dragged her behind the barrier where it proceed mauling her… or so thought.

In less than a minute after that, Koji and his girlfriend were thrown upwards before landing down onto where they were attacked. Not bothering to hesitate, they ran out of the area as fast as they could, leaving the drinks and Koji’s headphones behind. On the other side of the barrier, the Meganulon rose up, a proboscis hanging from its mouth, which slowly rolled back into its mandibles like a party horn recoiling after being blown. Blood leaked from its mouth. It then crawled up a building, and hunched down.

Suddenly, its back opened up, and the insect emerged in its Meganula stage. Thanks to the blood it sucked from its prey, its wings quickly became light, but strong, sharp, and sturdy.

Alix, already dressed up in PJs, looked out the window, sighing. She had been here for six days, and tomorrow, they had to leave her uncle and return to Paris. "Wish I could stay here forever," Little Alix sighed.

Suddenly, she saw something flying in the distance. She thought it was a bird, like a gull or a falcon. But as she got a better look, she saw that the thing in the distance resembled a dragonfly. Impossible, she thought, dragonflies grew big, but not THAT big. She rubbed her eyes to make sure she was hallucinating. Unfortunately, she wasn’t. The flying creature zipped up to the sky out of sight, then flew real close to Alix as it passed. It was enough to make her literally jump out of her seat and onto the floor. After recovering from her shock, the pinkette looked out the window to see if the creature was there, but it wasn't. Sighing in relief, she crawled into bed and fell asleep. Wait until she told everyone her dream the next morning.

————————————————————
Tokyo Bay, Japan. July 29, 2002.
11:45 A.M.
————————————————————

Today was the last day before Alix and her family returned to Paris. Mr. Kubdel had work to do at the Louvre, and Alix and Jalil had to get ready for school. However, to keep themselves happy, they all decided to hangout together in Odaiba near Tokyo Bay before the Kubdels headed to Haneda Airport to get a plane to Shanghai, then another plane to Moscow, and finally, a plane to France.

Alix had her cap on to keep the sun’s rays out of her eyes. Jalil wore his usual attire, minus the scarf. Yuri wore sunglasses, an orange t-shirt, a blue skirt, gray leggings, and green summer shoes. Tazio wore his glasses to see better, but wore a black JSDF uniform. This was because he had a meeting later to discuss the history of the JSDF to some new recruits.

Yuri enjoyed Odaiba. This place was home to the Fuji Television Studios (which broadcasts her favorite superhero show, Mirrorman) a replica of The Statue of Liberty, and the famous Rainbow Bridge, which crosses from Odaiba and Shibuara across Tokyo Bay. Her father often took her across the 798-meter long bridge on many occasions. It always made her happy just crossing it. Her favorite spot was the Odaiba Seaside Park. Every summer, her father took her there to play on the beach. She loved it there. And now, she wanted to share that joy with her cousin.

"Dad, can me and Alix go to the seaside park?"

"Sure, what's the harm of playing on the sand?"

By the time the group came to the park, they were expecting a bustling crowd. Instead, they found policemen, army men, and a couple of tanks. There was even a member of the JSDF directing the rest of the men at the site. The man looked at Tazio and walked over to him. He was about the same height as Tazio, and wore the JSDF suit. He had brown hair, silver eyes, and a pimple on his right cheek.

"Daisuke," Tazio said. "What's happening here?"

"A whole lot. No pun intended. First, a couple, some children, and a group of eleven year olds claimed they were attacked by a giant monster last night, now a sinkhole formed right in the middle of the beach," Daisuke answered. "It's only three meters in diameter, but it's strange."

"Why?"

"It's like something big was tunneling through the sand. The area around the hole seems to be covered in some sort of saliva…"

While Daisuke was talking, Alix, being curious, crept stealthily away from her family to the hole, and stopped in front of the police tape. She knew that crossing tape would cause her serious trouble. But she still wanted to find the answer. Suddenly, something caught her left eye. She looked and saw a piece of plastic-like substance.

"Daddy, I found something." She exclaimed.

Hearing her calls, Mr. Kubdel rushed over to his daughter and looked at the flap in her hand. He wore thin-rimmed glasses, a purple undershirt, a dark gray vest with a gold Egyptian hieroglyph pattern, gray slacks, and black shoes. He stood a medium height with pale blue eyes and orange-brown hair, and a mustache.

"Tazio? Daisuke? What's this?"

Daisuke picked up the flap in looked closely at it. He gasped. Tazio knew Daisuke will only gasp if something was wrong… and surprises.

"It's a piece of a shell… from an insect's exoskeleton. And by the looks of it, a giant insect's exoskeleton."

"What are you talking about?" Jalil questioned. "Insects don't grow that big."

"They did in the past," Tazio corrected. "In 1954, a group of ants were mutated in the New Mexico desert by bomb tests. Fifteen years later, three giant mantises were spotted on Solgell Island. And three hundred million years ago, oxygen levels provided growth for giant species of insects, one of which called Meganula."

"Meganula?"

"A giant dragonfly the size of a biplane. It had sharp pincers, large wings, and an aggressive attitude. They lived in swarms and weren't hesitant to think twice before attacking. This piece of exoskeleton seems to have belonged to one."

"I've seen them in pictures. But don't worry, they're extinct." Alix's father nervously said.

"Not even so. In 1958, a swarm was discovered residing in a mine tunnel. They attacked miners and scared the villagers. The hive was ordered to be exterminated with bombs by the government to protect the village."

"Then how do you explain that?" Jalil pointed at the flap of shell.

"A Meganula must've survived the bombing and burrowed here. That might explain last night's attack."

"And Alix claimed she saw a huge dragonfly last night, too." Yuri added.

"She claimed it to be a dream" Jalil objected, but he was having doubts about it. "But what if she didn’t dream it?"

"Does this mean…" Alix asked before being cut off by a tremor. Suddenly, from beneath the ground, six huge insects erupted from out the hole. They resembled giant dragonflies with pincers and tail stingers. “Meganula! I knew what I saw last night was real!" Suddenly, the warning alarms in the general vicinity went off. In a matter of seconds, people were scrambling to emergency shelters, subway stations, basements, anywhere that they felt was safe from danger.

"Joél, take Yuri, Jalil and Alix to one of the emergency shelters. Me and Daisuke will take care of this." Tazio said. "Follow the evacuation and keep going no matter what."

Mr. Kubdel nodded and ushered the three children to the shelter and the four ran as fast as their legs could carry them. However, one of the Meganulas spotted them and sped after them while the rest of its swarm fought the police and army. It hovered about the ground and dodging trees, trying hard not to reveal its presence. Of course, this didn't go unnoticed by the group.

"Uncle Joél, there's a Meganula behind us!" Yuri shouted.

"Keep going!" Mr. Kubdel replied. "Don't stop no matter what!"

Due to her healthy body, build, and daily exercise, Alix was able to keep ahead of the pursuing arthropod, passing the others with ease. But this came with a price. Putting herself first before the others, literally, now made her a target, as Meganula now chose her as its next victim, and zeroed in. Mr. Kubdel was the first to notice this as he felt the breeze from the insect’s beating wings when it flew above him.

"ALIX!" He shouted, "LOOK OUT!"

Alix heard her father and looked back to see Meganula flying towards her. She tried to run even faster, but the insect quickly caught up to her. It raised its tail stinger, ready to impale Alix with it. The young girl knew there was no escape from this 'terror from the skies'. She waited for the killer blow…











…but it never came

Suddenly, something shiny shone light into the arthropod's eye, causing it to screech in pain. Alix quickly leapt out of the insect’s path as it flew into the streets and bumped into a lamppost. It recovered from the blow as it made a sharp turn and sped towards the pinkette…

…only to get splattered after being hit by a oncoming truck. Yellow liquid splashed in every direction, while the lower half of the dead insect landed right in front of Yuri, much to her disgust.

"Eww!" She commented while getting up.

"That was so EPIC!" Jalil cheered. The loud chirps and buzzing of the swarm, along with the sounds of gunfire and explosions, quickly brought it to an end.

"This way!" Mr. Kubdel instructed.

The four ran past the Daiba Nursery. However, Alix stopped and looked at one of the trees in the mini-gardens. She saw a golden-yellow amulet resting on one of the roots. It had three orbs adorning it, one brown, one blue, and one bright gold. In the center was a circle with six triangles on it. But what really caught her eye were the symbols on it. Next to the brown orb was some kind of dinosaur with a nasal horn and what looked like big ears. Next to the blue orb appeared to be a butterfly, but nothing like the ones she encountered. Finally, underneath the golden orb was a black creature with what looked like three heads, a pair of wings, two feet, and two tails.

But what caught her curiosity the most were the symbols next to the circle. On the left side was a silhouette standing next to a giant shoe. And on the right was a black dinosaur with four fingers and spikes adorning its back. The image was all too familiar with Alix. She realized the dinosaur resembled…

"Godzilla," she said to herself.

"Alix!" Her father called. "Hurry!"

"Coming!" She replied. She jogged over to the tree and grabbed the amulet before she ran back to her father.

————————————————————

On the beach, the military appeared to have the upper hand. Two Meganulas were blown to bits by the tanks, and another was shot down by SWAT fire. Tazio and Daisuke, now armed with a rocket launcher and Howa Type 89 Assault Rifle, dodged and shot at the remaining insects while avoiding their enemies own attacks. One of the two remaining dragonflies managed to deflect a tank shell using its large wings to create a gust powerful enough to send it flying towards a SWAT van, causing it to explode in a big ball of fire. Luckily, it was abandoned before the shell crashed into it.

"These bogies are tough," Daisuke said. "Shall we retreat?"

"No!" Tazio replied. "If we retreat now, more lives will be lost, including my family's. We're soldiers! We brought down a giant space jellyfish with only wasps and bees. We fought off a giant walrus. We even drove Godzilla back into the sea. These bugs are nothing compared to that. Now, are you with me or not?"

Daisuke remained silent, still thinking about his comrade's words. A sudden shriek got their attention as they looked up. One of the remaining Meganula left the safety of the skies and dived down toward the two men, like a gannet diving into the water after fish. Daisuke looked at his friend and said, "Let's do this!"

"That's the spirit," Tazio congratulated him.

They aimed their weapons at their target as it dropped swiftly toward them. Daisuke fired his rifle at the arthropod with rapid succession. Although the bullets didn't pierce the insect's exoskeleton, it was enough to rip small holes in its wings and confuse it while Tazio steadied his launcher.

"Daisuke, hold your fire!" He shouted. "It's my turn!"

Once he locked onto the quickly descending dragonfly, he pulled the trigger and fired. The grenade rocketed up through the sky as fast as the diving Meganula. In seconds, they collided with each other in a massive explosion. Pieces of exoskeleton, legs, wings, and even the whole tail rained down on the men, who didn't care about it.

"We did it!" Daisuke exclaimed.

"You bet your weapon-handling experience we did."

Their celebration was cut short when the last Meganula rammed into Tazio and pinned him to the ground.

"TAZIO!"

The insect tried to stab him with its pincers, but moved his head to avoid the attack. However, he felt exhausted and the sudden collision injured him. The dragonfly struck its pincers on each side near Tazio's head and prepared to maul him instead.

Luckily, Daisuke aimed a Nambu pistol at the creature's neck and fired, severely wounding it and causing the insect to stumble off its prey. Hearing the shot, the police and military gunners aimed their weapons at the bug and opened fire. Despite its hard exoskeleton, the bullets bursted through the shell and bombarded the Meganula until it couldn't take anymore and dropped to the ground, motionless.

Daisuke helped Tazio onto his feet and walked him over to some army men. Tazio sat down on a crate as Daisuke kneeled beside him.

"Arigato," He replied silently enough for Daisuke to hear.

"Hey, we're JSDF members," Daisuke said calmly. "You know the Army Credo: No man gets left behind. And I wouldn't leave you behind no matter what."

Both men looked at each other and smiled. They shook hands before Tazio stood back up. "I have to make sure my daughter and the others are okay," he said. He gave him his rocket launcher. Daisuke looked at his friend, who gave him a salute.

However, the moment ending when a high-pitched squeak filled the air. Everyone looked toward the Meganula, which was still alive, but barely. It crawled toward the edge hole in the ground it emerged from. With a final, long, high-pitched squeak, the insect dropped down dead and fell into the hole. After what seemed like half a minute, the ground began to quake. Cracks emerged from the hole as banks of sand fell into it.

"MOVE! MOVE!" Tazio shouted. The men didn't bother to hesitate, and the area was cleared in seconds before the ground erupted as a huge object bursted out of the sand. SWAT vans, military vehicles, weapons, tables, police cars and supplies rained down on the beach, some falling down the hole. The men looked up and couldn't believe their eyes. The object in question let out a high-pitched shrill, longer and higher than the Meganula.

————————————————————

Alix, Jalil, their father, and Yuri all heard the shrill by the time they reached one of the evacuation shelters: a big building behind the Daiba Nursery. This didn't go unnoticed by the other civilians, either. They all turned toward the direction of the sound, and gasped.

"OH… MY… G!" Jalil managed to stutter.

Hovering over the beach it emerged from was a giant dragonfly. A huge dragonfly like no one ever saw before: fifty meters long with an eighty meter wingspan, and weighing in at 12,000 metric tons. It looked like a cross between a Meganula and a theropod. It had purple brown skin and greenish spikes all over its body. Its head resembled a reptile rather than an insect, lacking antennae and having a toothy jaw instead of mandibles like an actual dragonfly. It also had visible pectoral and abdominal muscles on its underside. The tail was like that of a Meganula, long and ended with a sharp stinger. The underside of the tail was marked with several bright purple spots. This was Megaguirus: queen of the Meganula and Meganulon.

"That's the biggest bug I've ever seen," Alix said. And it was.

Like her minions, Megaguirus was also mutated by the bomb in the Bikini Atoll. As a Meganulon, it needed energy to complete its metamorphosis. Luckily, after the second Godzilla was driven away from Tokyo, her swarm attacked it and managed to gain its energy, even though the majority of the swarm was killed by the King of the Monsters. After gaining the blood from the dinosaur via energy transfer by her minions, she swam all the way to Tokyo Bay and burrowed underneath Odaiba Seaside Park a few nights before Alix and her family visited, without being noticed. The remaining Meganula emerged from the hole they dug to reach her, and take care of her, to protect their queen. The last Meganula's cry awoken her and, being fully grown with large wings, allowed her to burst out of the ground to avenge her fallen.

The insect let out another shrill before moving to the shelter. She now had a taste for vengeance, and everyone seemed to understand it, because they were now all stampeding into the shelter. Unfortunately, Alix, her brother and father, and Yuri were last in line, and Alix was in the way back, behind her father. Megaguirus, sadly, picked her out of the many people pushing and shoving their way to safety(presumably due to the fact the she had some drops of yellow liquid from the dead Meganula on her shirt). The insect clapped her wings together with enough force able to create an almost-visible sonic wave that crashed into the top of the building, causing it to explode into pieces. Alix looked up and saw several large chunk falling towards her. Knowing she wouldn’t make it inside in time, she ran back in the opposite direction just as the pieces crashed onto the ground, creating a shockwave that sent her flying two meters from her spot and onto the streets. She recovered quickly and sat back up, only to find that her only safety was blocked by rubble. She was now a sitting duck.

————————————————————

Meanwhile, Jalil, Mr. Kubdel, and Yuri, who were blown forward during impact, realized Alix was still outside. They tried to pull the rubble away, but it was too heavy and too compacted to find a hole large enough to climb through.

'Alix,' Mr. Kubdel prayed to himself. 'Please be safe. I don't want to lose you.'

'Be safe, sis!' Jalil thought. 'Be brave no matter what happens. When we get out of here, I promise I’ll find you and come to your aid.’

————————————————————

Megaguirus hovered after Alix, who was now running for her life. She ran across the deserted road, but stopped when she reached the freeway, with high walls two buses tall. She didn't have time to make a move because an explosion caused by another of Megaguirus' sonic booms sent her flying across the entire Metropolitan Expressway. She screamed as she fell closer to the ground. But, miraculously, she landed in the bed of a pickup truck parked near a store, which had pillows and feathers in it. She crashed down, sending feathers flying in all directions(which floated back down).

"Wow!" She exclaimed as she recovered. "And I thought that only happened in cartoons!"

The shrill of her pursuer reminder her to keep running. She vaulted out of the truck and sped down a path. However, her speed didn't match that of the fifty meter insect slowly flying above her. She looked up and saw it descending upon her. However, she was too busy looking at Megaguirus that she wasn't watching her step. She tripped on a rock and fell to the ground on her left side. Despite some bruising, there wasn't any serious damage. As she rolled onto her back, she shrieked at the sight of huge, toothy jaws bearing down upon her. Alix closed her eyes and covered her face to avoid seeing her death coming.

However, it never came. All she felt were gusts of wind blowing on her. By the time she opened her eyes, all she saw was a spiked, stinger-tipped tail moving out of view above her. She got back up and, despite the danger, limped after the giant insect. She climbed up the hill and quickly hurried across the Symbiotic Promenade Park bridge.

When she reached West Promenade, she quickly took cover behind the Gundam Statue, for Megaguirus was hovering right over W. Promenade.

'What's it doing?' She thought to herself.

The answer came when Megaguirus released a shrill and slowly ascended to the skies. Suddenly, an explosion of water rose from the bay, and a loud roar quickly arose from it.

'SKKKRREEEEEEOONK!'

Megaguirus responded with another shrill. What both her and Alix saw amazed them. When the cascade of falling seawater cleared, both saw a dinosaur sixty meters tall. It had four-fingered hands, charcoal-gray skin, and bone white dorsal plates emerging from its back. It had razor sharp teeth with prominent fangs coming in its mouth. Alix easily realized that this was the dinosaur her uncle told her about.

"Godzilla!"

The King of the Monsters uttered out another roar, this time with a trumpeting sound in it that sounded like an elephant. Megaguirus answered back, and descended to the ground to confront her new opponent. Alix, meanwhile, tried her hardest to stay out of view of the Kaiju, and hoped that the battle wouldn't be catastrophic.

"Alix."

The pinkette heard her name being called. It sounded like a young girl's. She looked around from her spot to find the source of the call.

"Alix."

She then looked at Godzilla and was surprised to find the voice was coming from the reptile. She knew Godzilla roared, but she never thought it could talk. But it was.

"Alix," the Kaiju called. "Alix!"

Alix didn't move, nor did she respond to the dinosaur.

"Alix!" "ALIX!" "HEY, PINK-HAIR!"

————————————————————
June 15, 2010
2:45 p.m.
————————————————————

Alix woke up with a jolt. She looked around to find she was no longer in Odaiba, but instead on a plane. She exhaled in relief.

She was no longer the little girl she once was. She was now fifteen years old, and her appearance had changed dramatically. Her pink hair was now in a messy, bob cut style(although she did have some of her hair on the right side of her head tied into a ponytail.) She sported a black cap with a black old English S logo that was outlined in white on the front. She wore a black long-sleeved, slate gray shirt underneath a dark brown tank top. Each sleeve had a lime green scale patterned fabric snake, starting from her shoulders and coiling around her arms until their heads stopped at her wrists. She also wore black jean shorts with pink stitching and black lace at the cuffs, black 1/2 hose length socks with two pink horizontal stripes, and black high top shoes with pink lace, black and lime green checkered sides with a wavy orange line over it, and white soles.

'It was all a dream,' She thought.

"About time, I thought you were deep in your sleep," a familiar voice said.

Alix looked down beside her and saw a younger brunette looking at her. She had thick black hair pulled back into a short, high ponytail. The brunette was wearing a red and white jersey with a red "1" on it, red-and-white track shorts, and black cleats with striped knee-high socks. She had freckles and purple-grey eyelids. She looked like a preteen instead of a teenager. In her hand, she was holding a pill-shaped object wrapped in foil.

"Well, thanks to you, I'm not," Alix replied

"That's a bit rude," the brunette replied back.

"Sorry, I just-"

"I like your attitude. You remind me of my oldest sister, Lori."

"I'll take that as a compliment, uh… What's your name?"

"Lynn Loud Jr," said another voice. Alix looked up and saw her friend, Marinette Dupain-Cheng. She looked half-French and half-Chinese, because her mother was from a Chinese family and her father was French. She had bluebell eyes and medium-length black hair with blue reflections. Similar to Lynn, she had her hair pulled back into two pigtails. Marinette wore a dark gray blazer with rolled up sleeves, with the blazer lined up in white with pink polka dots and a black trimming. Underneath she wore a white T-shirt with black stitching and a design(pink flowers and black leaves) below the collar. She had rolled up pink pants with the inside also lined in white with pink polka dots. She also wore black earrings and was carrying a light pink purse with a black strap over her shoulder. "Her family is from Royal Woods, Michigan. Apparently, they're on summer vacation, too."

"Marinette, here, told me that you're a professional skater. You've even competed with someone named Kim in a race, and won," Lynn told her.

"It's true," she replied. "I'm excellent when it comes to skating." That was mostly true. After surviving Megaguirus' defeat at the hands of Godzilla, she and her family went back to Paris where Alix and Jalil went to school. After entering College Francois Dupont at age fourteen, Alix met Marinette Dupain-Cheng and many other students, including her rival, Lê Chiên Kim. The two always got into disputes that were often put to rest at the hands of their fellow classmates.

When Alix turned fifteen a few months ago, she was given a special watch passed down through many generations by the Kubdels on their fifteenth birthdays. Her father said that the creator of the watch was "ahead of his time." Alix gladly kept the watch with her and promised to keep it safe, but asked a girl named Alya Césaire to hold onto it while she raced Kim. However, Alya asked Marinette to hold the watch while she was recording. During the race, the lunette almost dropped it, but luckily, a boy named Adrien Agreste caught it. Marinette felt light as a feather every time she saw him. For alas, she was in love with him. During the final lap, however, another girl named Chloé Bourgeois snatched the watch from Adrien, who she loved as well. Curious, she opened the watch, but was spooked and almost blinded by the blue light that shone from it. In fear, she dropped the watch on the racetrack, which Alix accidentally broke after skating over it. When she saw what happened, she angrily blamed Chloé, Alya, Adrien, and Marinette for what happened. That's when it started.

Although not as dangerous as the Meganula, Parisian super villain, Hawkmoth, was one of the most malevolent foes Earth had ever experienced. His best known superpower is to turn anyone into super villains via akumatization(when a butterfly he infects with akuma energy touches an object a person is in contact with and dissipates in said object). Cunning and feared, Hawkmoth chooses those with negative emotions to do his bidding. He lets them do whatever they want, and in return, they have to give him the Ladybug and Cat Miraculouses. And that's exactly what happened to Alix Kubdel.

After an Akuma made contact with her roller skate, she was transformed into Timebreaker, a villain with the power to steal life essence from anyone she touched and convert it into chronological energy that allowed her to travel back in time. With this power, she could go back and save her watch from destruction. Kim was the first to fall victim to her villainous form, followed by  Rose Lavillant, Mylène Haprèle, Alya, Chloé and her servant, Sabrina Raincomprix, and many other civilians who were unlucky to be there at the time. Luckily, Paris' superheroes, Ladybug and Cat-noir, arrived just in time. Of course, they were Marinette and Adrien with Ladybug and Catnoir Miraculouses respectively. Unfortunately, Cat-noir sacrificed himself to Timebreaker to save Ladybug, giving the villain a huge amount of essence. To alter the timeline, Ladybug used her yo-yo to hold onto Timebreaker as she zipped back to two minutes before her watch was broken. Unfortunately, the appearance the villain made Chloé drop the watch on the ground. The Alix of that time almost blamed her future self until Timebreaker claimed Ladybug was culprit. This, of course, made the Alix of that time vulnerable to akumatization. With both Alixes akumatized, it took the combined effort of Ladybug, and the Ladybug and Cat-noir of the Past, to de-evilize the two. Thanks to Ladybug's Miraculous Ladybug, the damage caused by both Timebreakers were undone(with Future Timebreaker and Future Ladybug being erased from history as their timeline was replaced with a new one), returning Alix back to normal, and repairing the broken watch as well. Alix apologized to Ladybug and thanked her for fixing her watch, promising that from now on, she'll keep it safe.

Alix never forgot that day, and while she was furious about Hawkmoth making her take the lives of innocent people, she admitted that seeing Kim scared made her feel giggly. But that was then. Now, Alix and her class were visiting Japan for a school project.

"Well, I've done lots of skating and sports, and I think it wouldn't compare to yours," Lynn replied.

"Thanks," Alix replied back. Suddenly, they heard a low growl coming from Alix's rumbling stomach. "Sorry, I didn't realize I was hungry."

"No worries," Lynn said. "I've brought this in case of something like this happening."

She gave the pinkette the wrapped object. "I'll be right back!" She said before walking down the aisle behind Alix. The teen unwrapped the wrapping paper to find a meatball sub in her hands. Lynn then walked back up and sat next to her, holding her own sub.

"Meatball subs," she said before taking a bite out of her sandwich. "My favorite food for lunch and dinner."

Alix looked at her sub and licked her lips. 'It does look appetizing,' she thought. She moved it up to mouth and took a small bite out of it. She chewed for a moment before her eyes widened. She swallowed and said, "This is delicious."

"Told you," Lynn said with her mouth full. "These things are packed with protein and are super good. Can't help to have a couple of these things."

Marinette watched as the two tomboyish girls munched away their lunch, with her own stomach rumbling reminding her about the little breakfast she had. "Excuse me, girls? Can I have a small piece of either of your subs?"

Lynn gulped what was already in her mouth before looking at the lunette. "I don't know," she answered. "These things have a kick in them. Not to mention spicy."

"She's right, Marinette," Alix said in agreement. "I don't think you can handle spicy food."

"Pfft, it's just a little spice. What's the worst that could happen?"

Despite her tomboyish personality and her fierce rivalry with Kim, she's kind to almost everyone else, including Marinette. She knew the lunette hadn't had anything spicy to eat for a long time due to her parents making her lunch for school everyday. But when Marinette wants to try something new, there are relatively few ways to stop her, and this wasn't one of them. She watched as Lynn ripped off a small piece of her own sub and offer it to Marinette. "Here you go," the brunette said. "Now take it or leave it, Ms. Macho."

"Gladly."

"Be careful, Marinette."

"I'll be fine, Alix. Like I said, it's just some spice."

Marinette took the piece from Lynn and popped it into her mouth. She put her hands on her hips to prove herself, all while she still chewed. Then, she swallowed and looked triumphantly at Lynn.

"I'll get some water," the sporty girl said. "Feel free to come along if you want." Marinette took a seat on the other row next to Alix, still looking at Lynn and giving her a cocky smile. "Okay, your funeral." The brunette stood back up, putting her sub on her seat, and began to walk down the aisle to where she came from. Alix, still eating her sub, looked worriedly at her friend.

"You shouldn't have done that, you know," the pinkette said before taking another bite out of her sandwich.

"Pfft, please. I've created a feathered hat for Adrien, made the banner for the bet between you and Kim, won the class president election against Chloé, helped Max win in the Video Game tournament, fought off Princess Fragrance, made a cover for Jagged Stone's new DVD hits, and made him the pair of glasses he wanted when I couldn’t find some for him. I'm sure I can handle a sub."

Alix swallowed her mouthful. "But you haven't eaten spicy food for a long time. Are you sure you can handle it?"

"I'm fine," the lunette said just as Lynn got back with a bottle of water.

"Sure you're fine, girl?" Lynn asked.

"Sure I am. Compared to the danger villains bring to Paris, this is no-" Marinette felt like her tongue was burning up. "This is not-" She tried to ignore the burning until it got to the point where she couldn't take it anymore. "Okay," she managed to say calmly despite the hotness in her mouth. "This is just as bad as the akumatized villains Ladybug and Cat-noir fight." She then emitted a long, loud and painful "HHOOOOOOTTT!"

Lynn was audibly cackling at the time while Alix watched in sorrow, despite it was Marinette who took the risk. "Here, drink this!" She said loud enough for her friend to hear as she took the water from Lynn and held the bottle up for Marinette to take it, which she did. She quickly unscrewed the cap and drank the entire bottle until there wasn't a single drop left.

"That's better," she sighed in relief. She plopped back down in her seat in a heap.

"Come on, I liked it!" Lynn disappointedly replied. "You were literally on fire there for a second."

"Lynn!" Alix angrily said. "A simple apology would've been nice." She stared at the sporty tomboy, upset that she didn’t say “sorry” to Marinette (even though the lunette started the trouble).

"Fine" Lynn sighed, knowing she was no match for an older girl anyway, especially one who was friends with the girl she laughed at. She looked at Marinette and uttered a hearable "Sorry about that."

“Louder.”

“Okay! I’m sorry for laughing at your misfortune, Marinette.”

"It's fine. I'm the one who should be sorry. I shouldn't have been so foolish."

"You and me both," Lynn said back before she picked up her sub and sat back down. "Now that that's out of the way, time for some lunch." Before she could take a bite out of her sandwich, Alix quickly leaned in and took a chomp out of it before sitting back up. "Hey!" The sports girl exclaimed.

Alix chewed for a moment before swallowing. "That's for laughing at my friend," she said.

"I said I was sorry. You don't have stoop up to my lev-"

*Bbbbbrrrrraaaaaaaaauuuuuupppppp!* Alix burped in Lynn's face, prompting a giggle from Marinette. "And that's for waking me."

"I deserved that! I did that to my comic-loving brother once," the brunette chuckled. Alix offered Lynn her sandwich, which she accepted by taking a bite out of it.

"Did he enjoy that?" Marinette asked. Lynn swallowed and was about to respond until…

"For your information, I did not enjoy that at all."

The three looked from their seats to find a white-haired, buck-toothed boy with a tuft of white sticking out, blue jeans, an orange polo shirt, and white sports shoes with red stripes. Like Lynn, he had freckles.

"Hey, Lincoln," Lynn said. "I was telling these girls about the time I-"

"Yeah, yeah," Lincoln said. "I know. Luckily, your burps aren't as smelly as your Dutch Ovens."

"Wait," Alix spoke up. "You did a Dutch Oven on that poor boy."

"Lincoln's not just any boy. He's my brother," Lynn said proudly. "And even though I may do some things to him that he doesn't like, I still love him." Lincoln responded by hugging his sister, who didn't care that Marinette and Alix were watching them.

"One question," Alix asked. "Why do you have white hair?"

"That's a mystery me and my buddy Clyde are still looking up on."

Marinette looked behind Lincoln and saw a chocolate munchkin slowly rolling down the aisle. It went under Lincoln and stopped just in front of the four. Suddenly, something fast bursted from behind the curtain and bolted down the aisle. It screeched to a stop in front the munchkin, almost knocking Lincoln over in the process. It was a blonde girl, younger than Lincoln. Like Marinette, she had two pigtails, only they facing downward and tied down with red scrunchies. She was wearing a red baseball cap backwards, white sneakers with blue stripes, and a murky green t-shirt under blue overalls.

"Lana," Lincoln said. "Please be careful where you're going. You could've hurt someone, like me."

Lana picked up the munchkin and stood up, turning to face Lincoln, Lynn, and Alix. "Sorry, bro," she replied. "Just didn't want to lose this munchkin. It's so good." Alix and Marinette could see she was missing two of her front teeth.

'Another sister,' Alix thought. "Um, Lana, is it? That munchkin's been on the ground for at least ten seconds. I think it's best if you-"

She didn't have time to finish as Lana popped it in her mouth and swallowed it in one bite. Marinette and Alix looked shockingly at the young blonde.

"Y-you j-j-just ate a munchkin that was lying on the dirt-covered ground for ten seconds," Alix stuttered.

"That's Lana for you," Lynn said while finishing her sub. "She plays anywhere that's dirty, eats anything disgusting, and is a certified plumber and mechanic."

"Sometimes you got to get your hands dirty to survive."

"Um, Lincoln?" Alix asked. "How many sisters do you have?"

"Ten. Why?"

"You have ten sisters?"

"Yeah, that’s what I was going to tell you," Marinette replied, "Until my stomach reminded my about lunch."

Alix was about to unleash a whole wall of questions until Lincoln interrupted her. "Well, I know what you're thinking. 'Lincoln, how can you survive in a family that big?' Well, it's not easy, but it isn't impossible either. Despite that some of my sisters give me a hard time, they also face some problems I face. But, in the end, we still one, big, happy family." Marinette suddenly felt like crying when she heard the most beautiful sentence coming from a boy from a big family. "I know you're crying, Lynn."

"Dang it."

Alix felt better after that, but not for long. After finishing her sub, she looked down at the ocean from out the window. She knew that somewhere down there was Godzilla. She was wondering if he would return.

"Hey, Alix?" Lana asked. "Are you okay?

"I'm fine, Lana."

"I don't think looking out the window with a frown is fine, Alix," Marinette agreed.

"I'm just thinking about someone."

"Kim?" Lynn guessed.

"Your brother?" Lincoln joined in.

"I'm right, here!" Said a voice. Jalil was sitting two seats in front of the others. He heard everything they said and almost chuckled at Marinette's misfortune.

Like Alix, his appearance also changed. Although he retained his glasses and orange scarf, he now sported a white shirt with a golden Eye of Horus on it, a grayish-green jacket, beige jeans, and sandals. A scarab pendant hung around his neck.

"Hi, Jalil," Marinette responded. "Sorry about that. Alix said she thinking about someone. And Lincoln thought it was you."

"I think I know who, or what, Alix is thinking about," the older brunette male said.

"Who?"





"Godzilla," Jalil said silently.



"Godzilla?" Lincoln finally spoke. "You mean the dinosaur that attacked Japan in 1954?"

"Why would she think about the demon who fell victim to the Japanese army?" Lynn replied.

"Godzilla's not a demon!" Lana argued. "He's a dinosaur mutated by radiation from the depths of the ocean. I'd think he'd make the perfect pet."

"I still think thinking about a monster wouldn't make you frown. Unless, it killed someone close to you…"

"It's true," Alix finally said. Everyone looked at her. "I am thinking of Godzilla, but not the first one."

"There's another Godzilla?" Lana asked.

"Another member of its species arose and attacked Tokyo in 1984. It was driven away by the JSDF, but it emerged again eight years ago to fight a dragonfly the military dubbed Megaguirus," Jalil answered. "And we were there at the time. After the battle, we were lucky to be alive."

"On that day, I found an amulet next to Daiba Nursery," Alix said. She reached into her pocket and pulled out the amulet. "Ever since then, I wondered if it has to do something related to Godzilla, because after he defeated Megaguirus, he went back into the ocean without causing more destruction."

Lincoln, Lynn, Lana, Jalil and Marinette all looked at the amulet. They were amazed at the symbols at it. Lana found the dinosaur with ears to be cute, while Marinette was amazed at the butterfly's appearance. Jalil, however, was curious about the black dragon. It was like nothing he'd ever seen.

"My biggest question is the symbol of the silhouette next to the foot and the dinosaur that resembles Godzilla. I wonder if this has a secret power to it."

"Well, why don't you ask Sailor Moon about it?" Lincoln said.

"Sailor Moon?" Alix asked, confused.

"A Japanese super-heroine said to have come from the Moon Kingdom. She's the guardian of peace and love, and defender of the Earth."

"You mean like a Japanese equivalent of Ladybug?" Marinette asked.

"Exactly. If anyone can help you identify the power of that amulet, it's her."

"I hope you're right," Alix said, nervously, before looking out the window again. "It's only a matter of time before Godzilla might appear again, and who knows what'll happen when he does."

Unfortunately, she would be right.

————————————————————

30 meters from the Bonin Islands

280 meters below the waves, a familiar gigantic dinosaur lied drowsily on the ocean floor. After defeating Megaguirus eight years ago, Godzilla retreated under the waves and fed on nuclear energy from sea stacks and nuclear waste. It had left humanity alone for the time. To conserve energy, it entered a state of torpidity, slowly feeding off the nuclear energy it stored in its dorsal plates. However, it wasn't going to last.

Zooming across the ocean floor, a dark shadow made its way to the sleeping giant. It slowed down and entered through Godzilla's left internal ear. It made its way through the ear canal and followed the auditory nerve to the brain. There, it latched onto the organ and encased itself around it.

On the outside, it appeared normal. Suddenly, Godzilla's eyes opened up. But they were now pure white with no pupils. The creature slowly got up, and stood on his two hind legs. Inside its brain, the shadow mercilessly controlled the Kaiju. Then, purple eyes, a light blue mouth, and a diamond-shaped object emerged from the dark purple haze. This was a fragment of the now deceased Queen Metaria, the evilest and most malevolent of villains.

"Now, Godzilla," she telepathically said the kaiju. "You are now under my command. If you don't want your brain fried, you'll do what I say. Got it?"

The reptilian colossus nodded, knowing he had no other choice. His dorsal plates began to glow a bright blue as he opened his mouth, which also emitted a bright blue glow, before firing his atomic breath.
GLLK: Giant Monsters All Out Attack Ch. 1
Based off of Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack

Alix Kubdel has been plagued with memories of her encounter with the King of Monsters in 2002, and wonders if he'll give humanity a second chance. Eight years later, a field trip to Japan with a family of ten girls and one boy turns into a fight for survival when Godzilla returns, but this time under the control of Queen Metaria, who seeks revenge on the Sailor Scouts and humanity.

Chapter 1. Memories: The Past
Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. July 28, 2002.
7:35 P.M.

Another beautiful night in the Shibuya Ward in Tokyo. People were going from work to home, while traffic continued at a steady pace. Surrounding the busy Shibuya station was the commercial store, and to the East Gate, the Tokyu Department Store. This was the hottest area for nightlife in Japan. Seven year old Alix Kubdel strolled along the streets with her brother, Jalil Kubdel, her uncle, Tazio Tachibana, and Yuri Tachibana, her uncle's daughter and Alix's cousin. Alix had blue eyes and pink hair tied up into a ponytail. She wore a small sailor fuku, red tie, green skirt, and black shoes. The pinkette was visiting Japan with her brother and father to see her uncle and cousin for a week. So far, it went fine. Alix was especially fascinated to hear her uncle's stories about his job at the JSDF, the battles he fought in, and Yuri's feelings to a teenage male at her school, much to the latter's embarrassment. Of course, what made Alix, Jalil, and Yuri hang on the edge of their seats was his tales about the King of the Monsters, Godzilla.

Godzilla, as Tazio describes him, was a radioactive dinosaur mutated by atomic bombs tested on deserted islands by the Manhattan project in 1950. He stands 60 meters tall, is 85 meters from nose to tail, and weighs around 30,000 metric tons. His skin is rough, with charcoal black scales, and has 60 smooth, bone-white plates running down his back. He has four fingered hands, with each finger ending in sharp claws, and four-toed feet, each toe sporting strong, sharp, and white talons, like a bird. Because of being mutated with radioactive energy, he's able to spew a blue and white, streamlined, focused beam of atomic energy, obliterating anything it touches. He knew all this because of what he saw in 1954, when Godzilla first rose up from Tokyo Bay.

"The sky was blood red, filled with smoke billowing from the burnt remains of wherever he laid death and destruction," Tazio said to his daughter, niece, and nephew. "And through it, a devil appeared, it's face twisted with rage and hatred!"

Alix shivered. Well, it was actually Jalil shivering in fear, hugging the pinkette closely near him while they walked along, his vibrations made Alix shake, too. That didn't last long, however, as he released his grip on his sister.

Jalil was a bit taller than Alix, with chin-length reddish-brown hair and dark blue eyes. He had glasses, an orange scarf, a plaid shirt under a blue jacket, crimson pants, white socks, and black shoes.

"If it hadn't been for JSDF, that monster would've taken over the world." The young man continued. "He would've enslaved us, forcing us to work everyday, and making us do… HOMEWORK!"

Alix giggled at her uncle's joke. She liked his bravery and experience as well as his humor.

In reality, however, Godzilla wasn't killed by the JSDF, and wasn't even trying to take over the world. It, in fact, was a victim of nuclear warfare, and attacked humanity as an act of revenge. It was only by the combined might of the JSDF and Dr. Serizawa's Oxygen Destroyer that finally ended the mutated creature's rampage and killed him.

However, in the years that followed, more and more creatures like Godzilla emerged from beneath the Earth, from the ocean depths, and from outer space. It wasn't until 1984 that another member of Godzilla's kind emerged and ravaged Japan in attempt to avenge its fallen. The creature, however, was lured back into the ocean before it could cause more damage. Since then, it remained under the depths of the ocean, and hadn't attacked since.

"Some say," Tazio continued, "that the first Godzilla's spirit still lurks around the streets of Japan, looking for children to take back with him beneath the waves, and force them to worship him everyday."

"No way!" Yuri replied.

"I'll fight him," Alix chirped. "I'll make sure he'll never make anyone worship him. I want to be like you, Uncle."

"Well then," Tazio whispered "First you'll have to face the… Tickle Monster!"

Alix laughed as she ran around her uncle, trying to avoid being tickled, until Yuri and Jalil joined in. The tomboy dashed straight pass the others, and turned left into an alley. While the others followed her, she stopped and taunted them before continuing running. The fun, however, ended when Alix stepped into a large puddle, splashing water all over her shoes, pants, shirt and face. Her pursuers stopped three feet behind her, and observed the puddle.

"That's one big puddle of water," Alix commented.

"It wasn't raining today," Jalil said, breaking the silence.

"Then how'd it get here?" Alix asked.

"Maybe someone dropped a bucket of water accidentally."

"From up there?" Alix pointed at the building next to them.

"Not up," Tazio answered, pointing down at his feet. "Down."

Everyone looked beneath them. Indeed, the water was spouting up from beneath the sewers.

"A clog?"

"A damaged sewer pipe?"

"None that I know of," Tazio said, worriedly. "Come on, Alix. Let's get you back to the apartment and get you a new change of clothes."

"Arigato, Uncle Tazio," Alix exclaimed, jumping for joy. She skipped out of the alleyway with her uncle, brother, and cousin behind her.

By the time the four had headed out of the alley and back to Tazio's apartment, a shadow emerged from the corner of a building. Soon, a enormous insect emerged from the shadows. It was 2 meters long, and weighed around 500 lbs. The insect was light brown in color, had spiky and smooth skin, compound eyes, black lines around its three segments, two mantis-like pincers, six legs with two claws on each foot, antennae, a fanged mandible with hair underneath, and a pair of wings folded on its back. This was Meganulon, a species of insect related to dragonflies and damselflies that survived the Carboniferous by hibernating under the Earth's surface for 300,000,000 years. Like Godzilla, they were also affect by the Manhattan Project's bomb. The tremor caused by the explosion awoken them, and radiation mutated the creatures from half-a-meter long arthropod eagles, to the Kaiju like creatures we're familiar with.

Behind the first giant arthropod, five more came out from the dark. Three were Meganulons, while the other two resembled brown dragonflies, except they had mantis-like pincers on their front limbs, and a stinger on their tails. These were Meganula. Adult Meganulons. And they were preparing for a hunt.

——
3 Minutes Later
——

Two blocks away from where the sewers were flooding, a young man named Koji entered an area near a barrier fence for a dig site. As he sat down and listened to music, he pulled out a lighter to smoke on a cigarette. Suddenly, something bumped against the fence, caused it to vibrate. However, Koji's headphones blocked out the sounds, so he couldn't hear anything else.

Just then, a Meganulon bursted through the barrier and attacked Koji, who screamed once he saw it. The arthropod secured the man with its pincers, ensuring that there was no chance of escape. The creature then opened it mandibles and loomed downward onto its victim. Koji's headphones fell to the ground, as the bug continued its assault.

Just fifteen seconds after that, Koji's girlfriend appeared with drinks for her and her boyfriend. She then saw his headphones on the ground, and, while holding her cup between her teeth and putting Koji's drink down, picked them up. It was covered in a gooey-like substance, which frightened her. As she turned around, the same bug appeared again, and attacked her. She screamed and wailed as it grabbed her with its tail and dragged her behind the barrier where it proceed mauling her… or so thought.

In less than a minute after that, Koji and his girlfriend were thrown upwards before landing down onto where they were attacked. Not bothering to hesitate, they ran out of the area as fast as they could, leaving the drinks and headphones behind. On the other side of the barrier, the Meganulon rose up, a proboscis hanging from its mouth, which slowly rolled back into its mandibles like a party horn recoiling after being blown. Blood leaked from its mouth. It then crawled up a building, and hunched down.

Suddenly, its back opened up, and the insect emerged in its Meganula stage. Thanks to the blood it sucked from its prey, its wings quickly became light, but strong, sharp, and sturdy.

Alix, already dressed up in PJs, looked out the window, sighing. She had been here for six days, and tomorrow, they had to leave her uncle and return to Paris. "Wish I could stay here forever," Little Alix sighed.

Suddenly, she saw something flying in the distance. She thought it was a bird, like a gull or a falcon. But as it made a turn, she saw its wings were beaten every half a second, like a dragonfly. Impossible, she thought, dragonflies grew big, but not THAT big. She rubbed her eyes to make sure it wasn't real. Unfortunately, it was. It zipped up to the sky out of sight, then flew real close to Alix as it passed. It was enough to make her literally jump out of her seat and onto the floor. After recovering from her shock, the pinkette looked out the window to see if the insect was there, but it wasn't. Sighing in relief, she crawled into bed and fell asleep. Wait until she told everyone her dream the next morning.

—————

Tokyo Bay, Japan. July 29, 2002.
11:45 A.M.

Today was the last day before Alix and her family returned to Paris. Mr. Kubdel had work to do at the Louvre, and Alix and Jalil had to get ready for school. However, to keep themselves happy, they decided to hangout  in Odaiba near Tokyo Bay before heading to Haneda Airport to get a plane to Shanghai, then another plane to Moscow, and finally, a plane to France.

Yuri enjoyed Odaiba. This place was home to the Fuji Television Studios, which broadcasts her favorite superhero show, Mirrorman, a replica of The Statue of Liberty, and the famous Rainbow Bridge, which crosses from Odaiba and Shibuara across Tokyo Bay. Her father often took her across the 798-meter long bridge on many occasions. It always made her happy just crossing it. Her favorite spot was the Odaiba Seaside Park. Every summer, her father took her there to play on the beach. She loved it there. And now, she wanted to share that joy with her cousin.

"Dad, can me and Alix go to the seaside park?"

"Sure, what's the harm of playing on the sand?"

By the time the group came to the park, they were expecting a bustling crowd. Instead, they found policemen, army men, and a couple of tanks. There was even a member of the JSDF directing the rest of the men at the site. The man looked at Tazio and walked over to him. He was about the same height as Tazio, and wore the JSDF suit. He had brown hair, silver eyes, and a pimple on his right cheek.

"Daisuke," Tazio said. "What's happening here?"

"A whole lot. No pun intended. First, a couple, some children, and a group of eleven year olds claimed they were attacked by a giant monster last night, now a sinkhole formed right in the middle of the beach," Daisuke answered. "It's only three meters in diameter, but it's strange."

"Why?"

"It's like something big was tunneling through the sand. The area around the hole seems to be covered in some sort of saliva…"

While Daisuke was talking, Alix, being curious, crept stealthily away from her family to the hole, and stopped in front of the police tape. She knew that crossing tape would cause her serious trouble. But she still wanted to find the answer. Suddenly, something caught her left eye. She looked and saw a piece of plastic-like substance.

"Daddy, I found something." She exclaimed.

Hearing her calls, Mr. Kubdel rushed over to his daughter and looked at the flap in her hand.

"Tazio? Daisuke? What's this?"

Daisuke picked up the flap in looked closely at it. He gasped. Tazio knew Daisuke will only gasp if something was wrong… and surprises.

"It's a piece of a shell… from an insect's exoskeleton. And by the looks of it, a giant insect's exoskeleton."

"What are you talking about?" Jalil questioned. "Insects don't grow that big."

"They did in the past," Tazio corrected. "In 1954, a group of ants were mutated in the New Mexico desert by bomb tests. Fifteen years later, three giant mantises were spotted on Solgell Island. And three hundred million years ago, oxygen levels provided growth for giant species of insects, one of which called Meganula."

"Meganula?"

"A giant dragonfly the size of a biplane. It had sharp pincers, large wings, and an aggressive attitude. They lived in swarms and weren't hesitant to think twice before attacking. This piece of exoskeleton seems to have belonged to one."

"I've seen them in pictures. But don't worry, they're extinct." Alix's father nervously said.

"Not even so. In 1958, a swarm was discovered residing in a mine tunnel. They attacked miners and scared the villagers. The hive was ordered to be exterminated with bombs by the government to protect the village."

"Then how do you explain that?" Jalil pointed at the flap of shell.

"A Meganula must've survived the bombing and burrowed here. That might explain last night's attack."

"And Alix claimed she saw a huge dragonfly last night, too." Yuri added.

"Does this mean…" Alix asked before being cut off by a tremor. Suddenly, from beneath the ground, six huge insects erupted from out the hole. They resembled giant dragonflies with pincers and tail stingers. “Meganula! I knew what I saw last night was real!"

Suddenly, the warning alarms went off. This let everyone in the area know something terrible was happening. In a matter of seconds, people were scrambling to emergency shelters, subway stations, basements, anywhere that they felt was safe from danger.

"Joél, take Yuri, Jalil and Alix to one of the emergency shelters. Me and Daisuke will take care of this." Tazio said. "Follow the evacuation and keep going no matter what."

Mr. Kubdel nodded and ushered the three children to the shelter and the four ran as fast as their legs go carry them. However, one of the Meganulas saw them and sped after them while its swarm fought the police and army. It hovered about the ground and dodging trees, trying hard not to reveal its presence. Of course, this didn't go unnoticed by the group.

"Uncle Joél, there's a Meganula behind us!" Yuri shouted.

"Keep going!" Mr. Kubdel replied. "Don't stop no matter what!"

Due to her healthy body, build, and daily exercise, Alix was able to keep ahead of the pursuing arthropod, passing the others with ease. However, like many predators, the dragonfly targeted the slowest of the group. In this case, it was Yuri. It zoomed above the young girl and grabbed her with its pincers.

"HELP!"

"YURI!" The Kubdels said all at once.

Alix leapt up and grabbed Yuri's legs, while her father grabbed her, and Jalil grabbed him. The three pulled as hard as they could in order to get Yuri back, but the insect wouldn't go down without a fight. It beated its wings faster to gain more power, but it was only enough to drag the Kubdels three feet from their position. Alix didn't want her cousin to get killed, not like this. Not on her last day visiting Japan. She pulled harder and harder while the Meganula kept pulling.

"LET… MY… COUSIN… GO!" She yelled between breathes to keep herself from heating up. However, she felt tired and her arms couldn't hold Yuri's legs for much longer.

Suddenly, something shiny shone light into the arthropod's eye, causing it to screech in pain. Seeing this as their chance, the three Parisians pulled with all their might until suddenly, the pincers snapped off the Meganula's arms, freeing Yuri and causing the wounded insect to fly out into the streets… bump into a lamppost, and get splattered after being hit by a oncoming truck. Yellow liquid splashed in every direction, while the lower half of the dead insect landed right in front of Yuri, much to her disgust.

"Eww!" She commented while getting up.

"That was so EPIC!" Jalil cheered. The loud chirps and buzzing of the swarm, along with the sounds of gunfire and explosions, quickly brought it to an end.

"This way!" Mr. Kubdel instructed.

The four ran past the Daiba Nursery. However, Alix stopped and looked at one of the trees in the mini-gardens. She saw a golden-yellow amulet resting on one of the roots. It had three orbs adorning it, one brown, one blue, and one bright gold. In the center was a circle with six triangles on it. But what really caught her eye were the symbols on it. Next to the brown orb was some kind of dinosaur with a nasal horn and what looked like big ears. Next to the blue orb appeared to be a butterfly, but nothing like the ones she encountered. Finally, underneath the golden orb was a black creature with what looked like three heads, a pair of wings, two feet, and two tails.

But what caught her curiosity the most were the symbols next to the circle. On the left side was a silhouette standing next to a giant shoe. And on the right was a black dinosaur with four fingers and spikes adorning its back. The image was all too familiar with Alix. She realized the dinosaur resembled…

"Godzilla," she said to herself.

"Alix!" Her father called. "Hurry!"

"Coming!" She replied. She jogged over to the tree and grabbed the amulet before she ran back to her father.

————

On the beach, the military appeared to have the upper hand. Two Meganulas were blown to bits by the tanks, and another was shot down by SWAT fire. Tazio and Daisuke, now armed with a rocket launcher and Minebea PM-9, dodged and shot at the remaining insects while avoiding their enemies own attacks. One of the two remaining dragonflies managed to deflect a tank shell using its large wings to create a gust powerful enough to send it flying towards a SWAT van, causing it to explode in a big ball of fire. Luckily, it was abandoned before the shell crashed into it.

"These bogies are tough," Daisuke said. "Shall we retreat?"

"No!" Tazio replied. "If we retreat now, more lives will be lost, including my niece's. We're soldiers! We brought down a giant space jellyfish with only wasps and bees. We fought off a giant walrus. We even drove Godzilla back into the sea. These bugs are nothing compared to that. Now, are you with me or not?"

Daisuke remained silent, still thinking about his comrade's words. A sudden shriek got their attention as they looked up. One of the remaining Meganula left the safety of the skies and dived down toward the two men like a gannet diving into the water after fish. Daisuke looked at his friend and said, "Let's do this!"

"That's the spirit," Tazio congratulated him.

They aimed their weapons at their target as it dropped swiftly toward them. Daisuke fired his pistol at the arthropod with rapid succession. Although the bullets didn't pierce the insect's exoskeleton, it was enough to rip small holes in its wings and confuse it while Tazio steadied his launcher.

"Daisuke, hold your fire!" He shouted. "It's my turn!"

Once he locked onto the quickly descending dragonfly, he pulled the trigger and fired. The grenade rocketed up through the sky as fast as the diving Meganula. In seconds, they collided with each other in a massive explosion. Pieces of exoskeleton, legs, wings, and even the whole tail rained down on the victors, who didn't care about it.

"We did it!" Daisuke exclaimed.

"You bet your weapon-handling experience we did."

Their celebration was cut short when the last Meganula rammed into Tazio and pinned him to the ground.

"TAZIO!"

The insect tried to stab him with its pincers, but moved his head to avoid the attack. However, he felt exhausted and the sudden collision injured him. The dragonfly struck its pincers on each side near Tazio's head and prepared to maul him instead.

Luckily, Daisuke aimed his pistol at the creature's neck and fired, severely wounding it and causing the insect to stumble off its prey. Hearing the shot, the police and military gunners aimed their weapons at the bug and opened fire. Despite its hard exoskeleton, the bullets bursted through the shell and bombarded the Meganula until it couldn't take anymore and dropped to the ground, motionless.

Daisuke helped Tazio onto his feet and walked him over to some army men. Tazio sat down on a crate as Daisuke kneeled beside him.

"Arigato," He replied silently enough for Daisuke to hear.

"Hey, we're JSDF members," Daisuke said calmly. "You know the Army Credo: No man gets left behind. And I wouldn't leave you behind no matter what."

Both men looked at each other and smiled. They shook hands before Tazio stood back up. "I have to make sure my daughter and the others are okay," he said. He gave him his rocket launcher. Daisuke looked at his friend, who gave him a salute.

However, the moment ending when a high-pitched squeak filled the air. Everyone looked toward the Meganula, which was still alive, but barely. It crawled toward the edge hole in the ground it emerged from. With a final, long, high-pitched squeak, the insect dropped down dead and fell into the hole. After what seemed like half a minute, the ground began to quake. Cracks emerged from the hole as banks of sand fell into it.

"MOVE! MOVE!" Tazio shouted. The men didn't bother to hesitate, and the area was cleared in seconds before the ground erupted as a huge object bursted out of the sand. SWAT vans, military vehicles, weapons, tables, police cars and supplies rained down on the beach, some falling down the hole. The men looked up and couldn't believe their eyes. The object in question let out a high-pitched shrill, longer and higher than the Meganula.

————

Alix, Jalil, their father, and Yuri all heard the shrill by the time they reached one of the evacuation shelters: a big building behind the Daiba Nursery. This didn't go unnoticed by the other civilians, either. They all turned toward the direction of the sound, and gasped.

"OH… MY… G!" Jalil managed to stutter.

Hovering over the beach it emerged from was a giant dragonfly. A huge dragonfly like no one ever saw before: fifty meters long with an eighty meter wingspan, and weighing in at 12,000 metric tons. It looked like a cross between a Meganula and a theropod. It had purple brown skin and greenish spikes all over its body. Its head resembled a reptile rather than an insect, lacking antennae and having a toothy jaw instead of mandibles like an actual dragonfly. It also had visible pectoral and abdominal muscles on its underside. The tail was like that of a Meganula, long and ended with a sharp stinger. The underside of the tail was marked with several bright purple spots. This was Megaguirus: queen of the Meganula and Meganulon.

"That's the biggest bug I've ever seen," Alix said. And it was.

Like her minions, Megaguirus was also mutated by the bomb in the Bikini Atoll. As a Meganulon, it needed energy to complete its metamorphosis. Luckily, after the second Godzilla was driven away from Tokyo, her swarm attacked it and managed to gain its energy, even though the majority of the swarm was killed by the King of the Monsters. After gaining the blood from the dinosaur via energy transfer by her minions, she swam all the way to Tokyo Bay and burrowed underneath Odaiba Seaside Park a few nights before Alix and her family visited, without being noticed. The remaining Meganula emerged from the hole they dug to reach her, and take care of her, to protect their queen. The last Meganula's cry awoken her and, being fully grown with large wings, allowed her to burst out of the ground to avenge her fallen.

The insect let out another shrill before moving to the shelter. She now had a taste for vengeance, and everyone seemed to understand it, because they were now all stampeding into the shelter. Unfortunately, Alix, her brother and father, and Yuri were last in line, and Alix was in the way back, behind her father. Megaguirus, sadly, picked her out of the many people pushing and shoving their way to safety. The insect clapped her wings together with enough force able to create an almost-visible sonic wave that crashed into the top of the building, causing it to explode into pieces. Alix looked up and saw several large chunk falling towards her. Knowing she wouldn’t make it inside in time, she ran back in the opposite direction just as the pieces crashed onto the ground, creating a shockwave that sent her flying two meters from her spot and onto the streets. She recovered quickly and sat back up, only to find that her only safety was blocked by rubble. She was now a sitting duck.

————

Meanwhile, Jalil, Mr. Kubdel, and Yuri, who were blown forward during impact, realized Alix was still outside. They tried to pull the rubble away, but it was too heavy and too compacted to find a hole large enough to climb through.

'Alix,' Mr. Kubdel prayed to himself. 'Please be safe. I don't want to lose you.'

'Be safe, sis!' Jalil thought. 'Be brave no matter what happens. When we get out of here, I promise I’ll find you and come to your aid.’

————

Megaguirus hovered after Alix, who was now running for her life. She ran across the deserted road, but stopped when she reached the freeway, with high walls two buses tall. She didn't have time to make a move because an explosion caused by another of Megaguirus' sonic booms sent her flying across the entire Metropolitan Expressway. She screamed as she fell closer to the ground. But, miraculously, she landed in the bed of a pickup truck parked near a store, which had pillows and feathers in it. She crashed down, sending feathers flying in all directions(which floated back down).

"Wow!" She exclaimed as she recovered. "And I thought that only happened in cartoons!"

The shrill of her pursuer reminder her to keep running. She vaulted out of the truck and sped down a path. However, her speed didn't match that of the fifty meter insect slowly flying above her. She looked up and saw it descending upon her. However, she was too busy looking at Megaguirus that she wasn't watching her step. She tripped on a rock and fell to the ground on her left side. Despite some bruising, there wasn't any serious damage. As she rolled onto her back, she shrieked at the sight of huge, toothy jaws bearing down upon her. Alix closed her eyes and covered her face to avoid seeing her death coming.

However, it never came. All she felt were gusts of wind blowing on her. By the time she opened her eyes, all she saw was a spiked, stinger-tipped tail moving out of view above her. She got back up and, despite the danger, limped after the giant insect. She climbed up the hill and quickly hurried across the Symbiotic Promenade Park bridge.

When she reached West Promenade, she quickly took cover behind the Gundam Statue, for Megaguirus was hovering right over W. Promenade.

'What's it doing?' She thought to herself.

The answer came when Megaguirus released a shrill and slowly ascended to the skies. Suddenly, an explosion of water rose from the bay, and a loud roar quickly arose from it.

'SKKKRREEEEEEOONK!'

Megaguirus responded with another shrill. What both her and Alix saw amazed them. When the cascade of falling seawater cleared, both saw a dinosaur sixty meters tall. It had four-fingered hands, charcoal-gray skin, and bone white dorsal plates emerging from its back. It had razor sharp teeth with prominent fangs coming in its mouth. Alix easily realized that this was the dinosaur her uncle told her about.

"Godzilla!"

The King of the Monsters uttered out another roar, this time with a trumpeting sound in it that sounded like an elephant. Megaguirus answered back, and descended to the ground to confront her new opponent. Alix, meanwhile, tried her hardest to stay out of view of the Kaiju, and hoped that the battle wouldn't be catastrophic.

"Alix."

The pinkette heard her name being called. It sounded like a young girl's. She looked around from her spot to find the source of the call.

"Alix."

She then looked at Godzilla and was surprised to find the voice was coming from the reptile. She knew Godzilla roared, but she never thought it could talk. But it was.

"Alix," the Kaiju called. "Alix!"

Alix didn't move, nor did she respond to the dinosaur.

"Alix!" "ALIX!" "HEY, PINK-HAIR!"

————

June 15, 2010
2:45 p.m.

Alix woke up with a jolt. She looked around to find she was no longer in Odaiba, but instead on a plane. She exhaled in relief.

'It was all a dream,' She thought.

"About time, I thought you were deep in your sleep," a familiar voice said.

Alix looked down beside her and saw a younger brunette looking at her. She had thick black hair pulled back into a short, high ponytail. The brunette was wearing a red and white jersey with a red "1" on it, red-and-white track shorts, and black cleats with striped knee-high socks. She had freckles and purple-grey eyelids. She looked like a preteen instead of a teenager. In her hand, she was holding a white wrapper wrapped around a pill-shaped object.

"Well, thanks to you, I'm not," Alix replied

"That's a bit rude," the brunette replied back.

"Sorry, I just-"

"I like your attitude. You remind me of my oldest sister, Lori."

"I'll take that as a compliment, uh… What's your name?"

"Lynn Loud Jr," said another voice. Alix looked up and saw her friend, Marinette Dupain-Cheng. She looked half-French and half-Chinese, because her mother was from a Chinese family and her father was French. She had bluebell eyes and medium-length black hair with blue reflections. Similar to Lynn, she had her hair pulled back into two pigtails.

Marinette wore a dark gray blazer with rolled up sleeves, with the blazer lined up in white with pink polka dots and a black trimming. Underneath she wore a white T-shirt with black stitching and a design(pink flowers and black leaves) below the collar. She had rolled up pink pants with the inside also lined in white with pink polka dots. She also wore black earrings and was carrying a light pink purse with a black strap over her shoulder.

"Her family is from Royal Woods, Michigan. Apparently, they're on summer vacation, too."

"Marinette, here, told me that you're a professional skater. You've even competed with someone named Kim in a race, and won," Lynn told her.

"It's true," she replied. "I'm excellent when it comes to skating." That was mostly true. After surviving Megaguirus' defeat at the hands of Godzilla, she and her family went back to Paris where Alix and Jalil went to school. After entering College Francois Dupont at age fourteen, Alix met Marinette Dupain-Cheng and many other students, including her rival, Lê Chiên Kim. The two always got into disputes that were often put to rest at the hands of their fellow classmates.

When Alix turned fifteen several weeks ago, she was given a special watch passed down through many generations by the Kubdels on their fifteenth birthdays. Her father said that the creator of the watch was "ahead of his time." Alix gladly kept the watch with her and promised to keep it safe, but asked a girl named Alya Césaire to hold onto it while she raced Kim. However, Alya asked Marinette to hold the watch while she was recording. During the race, the lunette almost dropped it, but luckily, a boy named Adrien Agreste caught it. Marinette felt light as a feather every time she saw him. For alas, she was in love with him. During the final lap, however, another girl named Chloé Bourgeois snatched the watch from Adrien, who she loved as well. Curious, she opened the watch, but was spooked and almost blinded by the blue light that shone from it. In fear, she dropped the watch on the racetrack, which Alix accidentally broke after skating over it. When she saw what happened, she angrily blamed Chloé, Alya, Adrien, and Marinette for what happened. That's when it started.

Although not as dangerous as the Meganula, Parisian super villain, Hawkmoth, was one of the most malevolent foes Earth had ever experienced. His best known superpower is to turn anyone into super villains via akumatization(when a butterfly he infects with akuma energy touches an object a person is in contact with and dissipates in said object). Cunning and feared, Hawkmoth chooses those with negative emotions to do his bidding. He lets them do whatever they want, and in return, they have to give him the Ladybug and Cat Miraculouses. And that's exactly what happened to Alix Kubdel.

After an Akuma made contact with her roller skate, she was given the power to steal life essence from people she touches and turn it into chronological energy to allow her to travel back to save her watch. Kim was the first to fall victim to her villainous form, Timebreaker. Following him were Rose Lavillant, Mylène Haprèle, Alya, Chloé and her servant, Sabrina Raincomprix, and many other civilians who were unlucky to be there at the time. Luckily, Paris' superheroes, Ladybug and Cat-noir, arrived just in time. Of course, they were Marinette and Adrien with Ladybug and Catnoir Miraculouses respectively. Unfortunately, Cat-noir sacrificed himself to Timebreaker to save Ladybug, giving the villain a huge amount of essence. To avenge her falling, Ladybug used her yo-yo to hold onto Timebreaker as she zipped back to two minutes before her watch was broken. Unfortunately, the appearance the villain made Chloé drop the watch on the ground. The Alix of that time almost blamed her future self until Timebreaker claimed Ladybug was culprit. This, of course, made the Alix of that time vulnerable to akumatization. With both Alixes akumatized, it took the combined effort of Ladybug, and the Ladybug and Cat-noir of the past to de-evilize the two. Thanks to Ladybug's Miraculous Ladybug, the damage caused by both Timebreakers were undone, with Future Timebreaker and Ladybug returning to the future and past Alix back to normal, and repairing the broken watch as well. Alix apologized to Ladybug and thanked her for fixing her watch, promising that from now on, she'll keep it safe.

Alix never forgot that day, and while she was furious about Hawkmoth making her take the lives of innocent people, she admitted that seeing Kim scared made her feel giggly. But that was then. Now, Alix and her class were visiting Japan for a school project.

"Well, I've done lots of skating and sports, and I think it wouldn't compare to yours," Lynn replied.

"Thanks," Alix replied back. Suddenly, they heard a low growl coming from Alix's rumbling stomach. "Sorry, I didn't realize I was hungry."

"No worries," Lynn said. "I've brought this in case of something like this happening."

She gave the pinkette the wrap in her hand. "I'll be right back!" She said before walking down the aisle behind Alix. The teen unwrapped the wrapping paper to find a meatball sub in her hands. Lynn then walked back up and sat next to her, holding her own sub.

"Meatball subs," she said before taking a bite out of her sandwich. "My favorite food for lunch and dinner."

Alix looked at her sub and licked her lips. 'It does look appetizing,' she thought. She moved it up to mouth and took a small bite out of it. She chewed for a moment before her eyes widened. She swallowed and said, "This is delicious."

"Told you," Lynn said with her mouth full. "These things are packed with protein and are super good. Can't help to have a couple of these things."

Marinette watched as the two tomboyish girls munched away their lunch, with her own stomach rumbling reminding her about the little breakfast she had. "Excuse me, Lynn? Can I have a piece?"

Lynn gulped what was already in her mouth before looking at the lunette. "I don't know," she answered. "These things have a kick in them. Not to mention spicy."

"She's right, Marinette," Alix said in agreement. "I don't think you can handle spicy food."

"Pfft, it's just a little spice. What's the worst that could happen?"

Despite her tomboyish personality and her fierce rivalry with Kim, she's kind to almost everyone else, including Marinette. She knew the lunette hadn't had anything spicy to eat for a long time due to her parents making her lunch for school everyday. But when Marinette wants to try something new, there are relatively few ways to stop her, and this wasn't one of them. She watched as Lynn ripped a small piece of her own sub and offer it to Marinette. "Here you go," the brunette said. "Now take it or leave it, Ms. Macho."

"Gladly."

"Be careful, Marinette."

"I'll be fine, Alix. Like I said, it's just some spice."

Marinette took the piece from Lynn and popped it into her mouth. She put her hands on her hips to prove she could handle any challenge while still chewing. Then she swallowed and looked triumphantly at Lynn.

"I'll get some water," the sporty girl said. "Feel free to come along if you want." Marinette took a seat on the other row next to Alix, still looking at Lynn and giving her a cocky smile. "Okay, your funeral." The brunette stood back up, putting her sub on her seat, and began to walk down the aisle to where she came from. Alix, still eating her sub, looked worriedly at her friend.

"You shouldn't have done that, you know," the pinkette said before taking another bite out of her sandwich.

"Pfft, please. I've created a feathered hat for Adrien, made the banner for the bet between you and Kim, won the class president election against Chloé, helped Max win in the Video Game tournament, fought off Princess Fragrance, made a cover for Jagged Stone's new DVD hits, and made him the pair of glasses he wanted when I couldn’t find some for him. I'm sure I can handle a sub."

Alix swallowed her mouthful. "But you haven't eaten spicy food for a long time. Are you sure you can handle it?"

"I'm fine," the lunette said just as Lynn got back with a bottle of water.

"Sure you're fine, girl?" Lynn asked.

"Sure I am. Compared to the danger villains bring to Paris, this is no-" Marinette felt like her tongue was burning up. "This is not-" She tried to ignore the burning until it got to the point where she couldn't take it anymore. "Okay," she managed to say calmly despite the hotness in her mouth. "This is just as bad as the akumatized villains Ladybug and Cat-noir fight." She then emitted a long, loud and painful "HHOOOOOOTTT!"

Lynn was audibly cackling at the time while Alix watched in sorrow, despite it was Marinette who took the risk. "Here, drink this!" She said loud enough for her friend to hear as she took the water from Lynn and held the bottle up for Marinette to take it, which she did. She quickly unscrewed the cap and drank the entire bottle until there wasn't a single drop left.

"That's better," she sighed in relief. She plopped back down in her seat in a heap.

"Come on, I liked it!" Lynn disappointedly replied. "You were literally on fire there for a second."

"Lynn!" Alix angrily said. "A simple apology would've been nice." She stared at the sporty tomboy, upset that she didn’t say “sorry” to Marinette (even though the lunette started the trouble).

"Fine" Lynn sighed, knowing she was no match for an older girl anyway, especially one who was friends with the girl she laughed at. She looked at Marinette and uttered a hearable "Sorry about that."

“Louder.”

“Okay! I’m sorry for laughing at your misfortune, Marinette.”

"It's fine. I'm the one who should be sorry. I shouldn't have been so foolish."

"You and me both," Lynn said back before she picked up her sub and sat back down. "Now that that's out of the way, time for some lunch." Before she could take a bite out of her sandwich, Alix quickly leaned in and took a chomp out of the brunette's sandwich before sitting back up. "Hey!" The sports girl exclaimed.

Alix chewed for a moment before swallowing. "That's for laughing at my friend," she said.

"I said I was sorry. You don't have stoop up to my lev-"

*Bbbbbrrrrraaaaaaaaauuuuuupppppp!* Alix burped in Lynn's face, prompting a giggle from Marinette. "And that's for waking me."

"I deserved that! I did that to my comic-loving brother once," the brunette chuckled. Alix offered Lynn her sandwich, which she accepted by taking a bite out of it.

"Did he enjoy that?" Marinette asked. Lynn swallowed and was about to respond until…

"For your information, I did not enjoy that at all."

The three looked from their seats to find a white-haired, buck-toothed boy with a tuft of white sticking out, blue jeans, an orange polo shirt, and white sports shoes with red stripes. Like Lynn, he had freckles.

"Hey, Lincoln," Lynn said. "I was telling these girls about the time I-"

"Yeah, yeah," Lincoln said. "I know. Luckily, your burps aren't as smelly as your Dutch Ovens."

"Wait," Alix spoke up. "You did a Dutch Oven on that poor boy."

"Lincoln's not just any boy. He's my brother," Lynn said proudly. "And even though I may do some things to him that he doesn't like, I still love him." Lincoln responded by hugging his sister, who didn't care that Marinette and Alix were watching them.

"One question," Alix asked. "Why do you have white hair?"

"That's a mystery me and my buddy Clyde are still looking up on."

Marinette looked behind Lincoln and saw a chocolate munchkin slowly rolling down the aisle. It went under Lincoln and stopped just in front of the four. Suddenly, something fast bursted from behind the curtain and bolted down the aisle. It screeched to a stop in front the munchkin, almost knocking Lincoln over in the process. It was a blonde girl, younger than Lincoln. Like Marinette, she had two pigtails, only they facing downward and tied down with red scrunchies. She was wearing a red baseball cap backwards, white sneakers with blue stripes, and a murky green t-shirt under blue overalls.

"Lana," Lincoln said. "Please be careful where you're going. You could've hurt someone, like me."

Lana picked up the munchkin and stood up, turning to face Lincoln, Lynn, and Alix. "Sorry, bro," she replied. "Just didn't want to lose this munchkin. It's so good." Alix and Marinette could see she was missing two of her front teeth.

'Another sister,' Alix thought. "Um, Lana, is it? That munchkin's been on the ground for at least ten seconds. I think it's best if you-"

She didn't have time to finish as Lana popped it in her mouth and swallowed it in one bite. Marinette and Alix looked shockingly at the young blonde.

"Y-you j-j-just ate a munchkin that was lying on the dirt-covered ground for ten seconds," Alix stuttered.

"That's Lana for you," Lynn said while finishing her sub. "She plays anywhere that's dirty, eats anything disgusting, and is a certified plumber and mechanic."

"Sometimes you got to get your hands dirty to survive."

"Um, Lincoln?" Alix asked. "How many sisters do you have?"

"Ten. Why?"

"You have ten sisters?"

"Yeah, that’s what I was going to tell you," Marinette replied, "Until my stomach reminded my about lunch."

Alix was about to unleash a whole wall of questions until Lincoln interrupted her. "Well, I know what you're thinking. 'Lincoln, how can you survive in a family that big?' Well, it's not easy, but it isn't impossible either. Despite that some of my sisters give me a hard time, they also face some problems I face. But, in the end, we still one, big, happy family." Marinette suddenly felt like crying when she heard the most beautiful sentence coming from a boy from a big family. "I know you're crying, Lynn."

"Dang it."

Alix felt better after that, but not for long. After finishing her sub, she looked down at the ocean from out the window. She knew that somewhere down there was Godzilla. She was wondering if he would return.

"Hey, Alix?" Lana asked. "Are you okay?

"I'm fine, Lana."

"I don't think looking out the window with a frown is fine, Alix," Marinette agreed.

"I'm just thinking about someone."

"Kim?" Lynn guessed.

"Your brother?" Lincoln joined in.

"I'm right, here!" Said a voice. Jalil was sitting two seats in front of the others. He heard everything they said and almost chuckled at Marinette's misfortune.

"Hi, Jalil," Marinette responded. "Sorry about that. Alix said she thinking about someone. And Lincoln thought it was you."

"I think I know who, or what, Alix is thinking about," the older brunette male said.

"Who?"





"Godzilla," Jalil said silently.



"Godzilla?" Lincoln finally spoke. "You mean the dinosaur that attacked Japan in 1954?"

"Why would she think about the demon who fell victim to the Japanese army?" Lynn replied.

"Godzilla's not a demon!" Lana argued. "He's a dinosaur mutated by radiation from the depths of the ocean. I'd think he'd make the perfect pet."

"I still think thinking about a monster wouldn't make you frown. Unless, it killed someone close to you…"

"It's true," Alix finally said. Everyone looked at her. "I am thinking of Godzilla, but not the first one."

"There's another Godzilla?" Lana asked.

"Another member of its species arose and attacked Tokyo in 1984. It was driven away by the JSDF, but it emerged again eight years ago to fight a dragonfly the military dubbed Megaguirus," Jalil answered. "And we were there at the time. After the battle, we were lucky to be alive."

"On that day, I found an amulet next to Daiba Nursery," Alix said. She reached into her pocket and pulled out the amulet. "Ever since then, I wondered if it has to do something related to Godzilla, because after he defeated Megaguirus, he went back into the ocean without causing more destruction."

Lincoln, Lynn, Lana, Jalil and Marinette all looked at the amulet. They were amazed at the symbols at it. Lana found the dinosaur with ears to be cute, while Marinette was amazed at the butterfly's appearance. Jalil, however, was curious about the black dragon. It was like nothing he'd ever seen.

"My biggest question is the symbol of the silhouette next to the foot and the dinosaur that resembles Godzilla. I wonder if this has a secret power to it."

"Well, why don't you ask Sailor Moon about it?" Lincoln said.

"Sailor Moon?" Alix asked, confused.

"A Japanese super-heroine said to have come from the Moon Kingdom. She's the guardian of peace and love, and defender of the Earth."

"You mean like a Japanese equivalent of Ladybug?" Marinette asked.

"Exactly. If anyone can help you identify the power of that amulet, it's her."

"I hope you're right," Alix said, nervously, before looking out the window again. "It's only a matter of time before Godzilla might appear again, and who knows what'll happen when he does."

Unfortunately, she would be right.

30 meters from the Bonin Islands

280 meters below the waves, a familiar gigantic dinosaur lied drowsily on the ocean floor. After defeating Megaguirus eight years ago, Godzilla retreated under the waves and fed on nuclear energy from sea stacks and nuclear waste. It had left humanity alone for the time. To conserve energy, it entered a state of torpidity, slowly feeding off the nuclear energy it stored in its dorsal plates. However, it wasn't going to last.

Zooming across the ocean floor, a dark shadow made its way to the sleeping giant. It slowed down and entered through Godzilla's left internal ear. It made its way through the ear canal and followed the auditory nerve to the brain. There, it latched onto the organ and encased itself around it.

On the outside, it appeared normal. Suddenly, Godzilla's eyes opened up. But they were now pure white with no pupils. The creature slowly got up, and stood on his two hind legs. Inside its brain, the shadow mercilessly controlled the Kaiju. Then, purple eyes, a light blue mouth, and a diamond-shaped object emerged from the dark purple haze. This was a fragment of the now deceased Queen Metaria, the evilest and most malevolent of villains.

"Now, Godzilla," she telepathically said the kaiju. "You are now under my command. If you don't want your brain fried, you'll do what I say. Got it?"

The reptilian colossus nodded, knowing he had no other choice. His dorsal plates began to glow a bright blue as he opened his mouth, which also emitted a bright blue glow, before firing his atomic breath.
