Episode 14 - Ride of the Valkyries

The battle was chaos. The host of Singularity agents, (as strange as they were, flying on giant, flapping books) were the most welcome sight Cassandra had seen in nearly two years of this awful post-Invasion world. They fired strange, finned pistols into the blackened horde with beams of light that illuminated the broken city. The visual dichotomy of light versus dark was not lost on her either. On one hand, the Worst Kate Five, face twisted with rage and malice, screaming into the sky, and on the other a golden-haired Singularity agent directing her allies that filled the sky like circling angels. 

Each shadow creature they erased made Kate bellow in pain, fear and frustration. Cassandra had learned that these were all extensions of her. That each shadow they had met to this point was like an appendage of the Worst Kate, trying literally to penetrate and absorb them. The Bureau were erasing her, bit by bit. But Kate was never one to go down quietly into the night, as oily black tendrils sprouted from her naked back and up into the sky to stab and swat at the flying agents. 

"C'mon Cassy!" Lacrecia shouted, snapping her lover back to reality. Lacrecia cleaved Excalibur through half a dozen shadows with each swing as she charged into the maelstrom of grabbing hands.

This is it, thought Cassandra before leaping into the fray behind her. Eros mimicked what it had seen from Kate, and sprouted sharp, blue tentacles from Cassandra's back to protect her from all sides as she engaged the shadow creatures. 

The battle raged on, but bit by bit the Bureau agents were losing ground. Lacrecia and Cassandra now stood back to back with the blonde agent in charge, her once-pristine uniform hanging off her like tattered rags. "Agent 1-Alpha-Alpha requesting immediate evac!!" she screamed. Moments later an interdimensional kiddie-pool appeared nearby.

The Worst Kate screamed with rage, "Noo!! You're not getting away from me that easily!!"

"Go! go! go!" shouted Lacrecia, baring Excalibur. Cassandra and the agent gripped each other and leaped. Two thick octopus-like tentacles snatched them from the air before they could escape! 

"GET BACK HERE!!" Kate roared.

"FUUUUUU-" screamed Lacrecia as she hacked the tentacles apart, plunging her lover and the agent into the kiddie-pool. With just enough time to look over her shoulder at the twisted face of Kate, Lacrecia dove into the pool after them.

The whole world changed. The cacophony of the battle was left behind, and the trio tumbled through time and space. Cassandra reached out and gripped Lacrecia's hand as they fell. A quick bump later and they were on solid ground once more, but the sight was like nothing either of them had seen before.

They were on a floating rock in the middle of what they could only describe as space. A million threads ran all around and met at a central point - a rather drab looking office building with the word 'SINGULARITY'. 

"What the..?" whispered Cassandra, pulling the severed tentacle from her waist. 

"This is the Bureau of Singularity.." the agent said, untangling herself from the other tentacle, ".. where all realities meet. The only place we'll be safe from those worst versions of your friends."
