Chapter Five: Training in the ruins of the past. (Part 2)
Edd was enamored by the journal.
Journal Entry #23, January 18th:
I recently stopped writing the year in all my journal entries. I stopped writing them in because going through universe after universe, it's hard to keep track of time. All worlds are on a different axis, yet they have the same thing in common; a sliver of light. Damian was acting like a big shot when he had taken down one of Mawgu's enforcers. This made a stupid fight break out between Denny and him. If lions and dragons ever met in the wild, they'd be rivals in the food chain. Robert was trying to bring peace between them, though it was hard to calm down an angry feline and an angry reptile. Jeremiah has also created a machine called a Come-puter. It seems like a worthy device, if he can ever get it to stop blowing up in his face.
End of Journal Entry...
Edd was about to read more of the journal when he was stopped by a knocking at the door. He placed the journal on the table and walked over to the door. He opened it to see it was Spongebob.
"Time to wake up. Renamon says the training starts extra early this morning." Spongebob stated smiling.
"But its only," Edd looked at his watch and saw it was 5:45 A.M. 'Oh dear, I must have stayed up all night.' Edd thought, with a nervous face.
"Is something wrong?" Spongebob asked, as he noticed Edd's nervousness.
"Oh, nothing. Have Jimmy and the others awoken yet?" Edd asked.
"Well, when I tried to wake them up, they kicked me out of the room." Spongebob stated.
"Well, I'll try to wake up Ed and Eddy, and we'll help you wake the others." Edd suggested.
"That's a great idea! You're almost as smart as Jimmy, maybe even equal to him." Spongebob smiled, which made Edd chuckle a bit. Edd walked over to his tired friends and smiled at their sleeping forms. Edd decided to wake Eddy first, since his voice could wake up the dead if it was loud enough. Edd gently nudged Eddy, which made him roll over and fall off the bed with a loud thud. Eddy groaned, as he looked over to see Edd smiling over him.
"What's the big idea sockhead?!" Eddy shouted.
"Sorry Eddy, but I need your help to wake up the others." Edd stated, as he gestured toward Ed who was sleeping like a bear curled up in a ball.
"Aww, he looks so peaceful." Spongebob proclaimed.
"Yeah, like a beached whale." Eddy bluntly stated, as he crawled on to Ed's belly. "He looks so gentle, oh Ed, Ed, WAKE UP SLEEPING UGLY!" Eddy shook the monobrow Ed til' he was awake. Ed looked around and smiled at his friends.
"Hiya guys." Ed greeted.
"Alright, now that Ed's awake, let's go wake up the others." Edd suggested. They soon walked out of the room, and into the Nicktoons room. When Eddy saw them sleeping, he grinned evilly and pulled out a bugle-horn. He took a deep breath, and played the bugle-horn loudly. This made Danny, Jimmy and Timmy fall out of their beds, holding their ears in pain.
"I can see why that Luke guy liked this." Eddy smiled.
"Only thing was he was our teacher, and I couldn't beat the snot out of him. You on the other hand I can easily beat the crap out of." Danny stated, as he pounded his fist into his hand, which made Eddy back away nervously.
"Now Danny, we're on the same team remember?" Eddy pointed out, as he backed away from the angry teen that was getting closer to him.
"Oh I will. I'll remember to put it on your tombstone!" Danny shouted, as he was about to punch him. Lucky for Eddy, Renamon had appeared and intercepted Danny's punch.
"There will be time for a sparring session later. For now just head outside of the castle." Renamon commanded, which made the Eds and Nicktoons walk down the hallway. Before they were out of sight Renamon had placed a paw on Edd's shoulder. "You on the other hand, come with me." Renamon stated, as she began to lead Edd down a highly illuminated hallway. They soon got to a door that had green smoke coming out of it. Renamon opened the door to show a messy chemical lab, with clothes all over the place. There was a pot that was generating the green smoke.
"What am I doing here?" Edd asked.
"I'll let her explain." Renamon stated, walking out of the messy room. Edd quickly tried to run out of the room, unfortunately Renamon closed the door in his face. This caused a loud yawning sound to be heard. Edd quickly tried to open the door only to find that it was locked. He saw a shadow come forward, and began to bang on the door in fear. He whimpered when he saw the figure was looming over him. He screamed and curled into a ball in fear.
"Geez, scared much?" The shadow spoke in a female voice. Edd looked up to see the figure was a blue female fox, with white markings on her face and jewelry on her ear and a silver head band with a jewel in it. She was in what appeared to be pink pajamas. Her tail had two golden bands on them.
"Who are you?" Edd asked, his voice was shaking.
"The name's Krystal. The reason you're here is because Renamon's training is physical," Krystal explained, "and you're the only one out of the group who has a spell book instead of a fighting weapon. So I'll be your teacher for the next three days instead of Renamon."
"Why pray-tell?" Edd asked.
"Because I'm a magic teacher. I'll be teaching you the great arts of magic." Krystal explained.
"What are my choices for training?" Edd asked, not wanting to believe in magic. He was open minded, but not that open minded.
"Train with me or Renamon, I honestly could careless." Krystal stated.
Edd thought about the training with Lucario and how it was medium hard at some points. He then started to think back to when Renamon flung Danny into the side of the mountain. She seemed like a very strict, physical teacher. So his options were, get beat up in training with Renamon, or swallow his scientific pride and believe in magic. He decided to do the one where he didn't have to need bandages afterwords.
"I'll train with you," Edd answered.
"Good to hear." Krystal smiled at the black cap Ed.
Meanwhile with the other two Eds and Nicktoons...
Renamon was outside in the courtyard with the rest of the students. The courtyard had a bunch of different broken statues of lions and wolves. It had a crescent moon mural on the ground.
"Excuse me Ms. Renamon?" Ed held his hand up.
"Yes, Ed?" Renamon looked at him.
"Where's Double D?" Ed asked.
"Eddward is taking a different type of training for the next three days." Renamon answered.
"That training better be as hard as this training." Eddy growled.
"Ok, today you will learn the many Japanese fighting styles, as well as learning about Chakra." Renamon explained, which made Spongebob and Timmy hold their hands up. "Yes, Timmy?" Renamon asked.
"What's Chakra?" Timmy asked.
"Chakra is like Aura, though there's two halves to it: physical and spiritual. Physical allows you to do basic functions, such as breathing and blinking your eyes. " Renamon explained. "Spiritual can be achieve through training and allow you to surpass human abilities, such as walking on water, exhaling fire or creating illusions."
"Woah..." The students let out, surprised.
"Now, the first thing you are going to learn is how to read your opponents movements." Renamon stated. "Spongebob, you'll fill in for Edd since he's doing special training."
"So why is Spongebob filling in for sockhead?" Eddy asked.
"Because, you're going to have a three-on-three spar match." Renamon explained. "Watch your opponents' movements and don't hold back."
The fight soon began with an explosive start, with Ed and Danny charging at each other, while Eddy charged at Timmy, as Spongebob charged at Jimmy as well.
Back to Edd and Krystal...
"Now, magic is about heart, as long as you have a big heart, you can master any spell there is." Krystal stated from behind the bathroom door as she changed into a purple shirt, and blue jeans.
"Ok, so a big heart equals magic? Sounds a bit illogical..." Edd stated, through the door.
"You believe in inspiration don't you?" Krystal asked, as she walked out of the bathroom.
"Yes, but that happens when a person has a cerebral spark of emotion in the mind, creating an idea." Edd stated.
"Where does the spark come from?" Krystal asked.
"Electromagnetic mind pulses." Edd answered.
"Ok, if you want to learn magic, you need to drop that science mumbo jumbo." Krystal stated.
"But..." Edd was about to counter.
"No buts!" Krystal exclaimed. "Now, you mastered aura, you can master magic a bit. This is going to require you to read all 30 of my magic books." She gestured to the multiple stacks of books
"Reading? Why didn't you say it would take reading to master magic." Edd stated, smiling.
"Really? Most people would say 'No, reading's dumb I want to try it out for myself'." Krystal stated a bit surprised.
"I am not like everyone else. If I must master 'magic', I might as well try to enjoy it through the wonders of reading." Edd stated.
"This is going to be easier than I thought." Krystal muttered to herself as Edd began to read to the top book of the stack.
Back to Renamon's training...
The courtyard had started to look like a battle field during their training. Neither side let up in the spar, which made Renamon silently impressed. During the fight they had switched opponents; Eddy was now battling Danny, Ed was battling Jimmy, and as for Spongebob he was battling Timmy. Danny panted heavily, Eddy was really letting him have it. Danny sighed and rested on a fallen column, wanting a small window of relief, which was over in five seconds, since Eddy appeared, charging at him with an Aura Sphere at hand. Danny dodged it, which made Eddy crash into the fallen column. The column burst into pieces after Eddy's Aura Sphere made contact, which caused Eddy to be thrown back by the blast. Eddy gritted his teeth as he was able to hold his ground after the blast.
"Geez Eddy, are you packing C4 into those things?" Danny asked looking at the remains of the column.
"Trust me, that was a display of only part of my new found power." Eddy stated with a wicked grin.
"You mean that was just a fraction?!" Danny asked, confused.
"Yep," Eddy bluffed. To be honest, that was all of his strength in one blast. Danny shook it off and charged at Eddy with an Aura Sphere of his own, which made Eddy do the same. During Ed and Jimmy's fight, Jimmy hid underneath a column. This training with Ed was even harder. He should have just stuck with Spongebob like at the beginning of the fight. Now he was fighting a colossus – no a powerful ally.
Jimmy tried to see the up side to this: if Ed is on their side they might be able to beat this new form of Mawgu. Ed jumped down in front of Jimmy with an Aura Sphere at hand and dropped the Sphere at Jimmy's feet. Ed soon took off with a grin, which made Jimmy look at the Aura Sphere with fear. The Aura Sphere had a number above it that was counting down: 7...6...5...4...3...2...1. Jimmy nervously put up his Aural Force Field to shield him from the blast that was the same as a plasma grenade's discharge. He was positive that having the Eds as either enemies or allies would cause him a lot of pain.
Spongebob and Timmy were able to hold their own against each other, only Spongebob gave a bit more in his fight. Timmy groaned, wondering why he couldn't get any arrows in his quiver. When he wished for arrows in his quiver, Cosmo and Wanda said that their magic couldn't affect other magical items. After about a few minutes, Renamon decided to stop the sparring, before their fights got near the castle.
"Alright, I've seen enough. I think your ready for an easy jujitsu." Renamon stated. "This jujitsu can come in handy for a fight; it's called Substitution."
"Cool, what can we do with it?" Ed asked.
"First, one of you try to attack me. I shall not move out of the way." Renamon proclaimed, which made Ed the first one to charge at her, with an Aura Sphere at hand. When his attack connected, white smoke appeared around Renamon and when the smoke vanished, in her place was a fallen column. Ed's attack still destroyed the column. They looked around and saw Renamon standing next to the other columns.
"Woah, how'd you do that?" Timmy asked.
"Substitution allows you to switch places with any nearby object or person. I switched places with a fallen column." Renamon explained.
"How do we do that?" Danny asked.
"Just try and picture a nearby item, then picture it in your place and vice versa." Renamon answered. "Now this jujitsu is very easy to master, so take your time and don't rush into it."
The six students began to try and use the technique. Jimmy suggested that if they used the techniques during a one-on-one battle they'd get better results. Eddy picked Danny for his battle, Timmy picked Ed, and Jimmy picked Spongebob. Danny was the first one to master it in Eddy's fight, Eddy mastered it after Danny did. The others picked it up as well.
"We have time for another jujitsu. It's a bit trickier; it's the Transformation Jujitsu." Renamon stated, as a puff of white smoke appears around her and in her place was a copy of Danny. "This jujitsu, allows the user to transform into anyone or anything he/she chooses."
"Cool! I want to try!" Timmy exclaimed, as he was about to attempt the technique.
"Timmy, wait!" Renamon warned too late. A puff of pink smoke surrounded Timmy. When it dissipated, in Timmy's place was a naked female version of himself. This caused Danny, Jimmy and Eddy to get a nose bleed, while Ed and Spongebob covered their eyes.
"Why the hell am I a naked girl?!" Timmy asked covering his B-Cups boobs.
"If performed incorrectly, the user becomes a naked opposite of his or her gender." Renamon explained.
"Are you serious?" Timmy asked angrily.
Back To Edd and Krystal's training...
Edd had finished all thirty of the spell books. Krystal was surprised when he finished all of the books after an hour.
"Ok, now for the practice of magic. Your aura will help you with that. Also, do you have photographic memory?" Krystal asked receiving a nod from Edd. "Good. Now hold your hand out and imagine the magic symbol for fire."
Edd held out his hand, as he began to imagine the symbol he read in the first book. As if on cue, a circle was in front of his hand and it started to have a fire emblem in it. Edd accidentally launched a fire ball out of the circle, which hit the pot of green smoke, making it explode. Green goo began to rain down on the two magic people.
"Magic is an unstable force, but as long as you have a good heart you'll always be able to make it through." Krystal stated smiling.
"Thank you, though I wish I was able to get a better grasp on it." Edd replied, wiping some green goo off of his hat.
"Relax. You know, it's better if you have a medium to focus your magic through." Krystal gasped. "I have just the thing!"
She ran out of the room and came back with a long blue rod. On the head of the rod was a white ring with a light green inner edge and five short spikes lining its outer edge, causing it to resemble a five-pointed star. There was a small, gold, five-pointed star set in the middle of the ring.
"This is the Comet Staff: it can have unimaginable power in the hands of good or in the hands of evil. I can tell your hands are good. And clean – do you use hand sanitizer?" Krystal giggled at the last part of her sentence.
"I do. It's healthy and kills germs." Edd replied. "Is there a safer place to practice my magic?"
"There is – the Castle's basement. It's like a giant warehouse, so to speak." Krystal suggested. "But, let's call it a day, I'm exhausted."
"You didn't do much other than work out on your flex-i-plex and look at magazines while I read." Edd stated, making Krystal blush. Edd was forcibly shoved out of the room by Krystal, who slammed the door behind him. Edd shrugged and made his way back to his room.
Back to the two Eds and Nicktoons...
After the embarrassing moment with the transformation mishap, they continued to train with the technique. Eddy was able to turn into Ed after a few tries. Ed was able to turn into Eddy after at least ten tries. Danny was able to turn into his friend Tucker Foley at least on one try. Jimmy and Timmy were able to turn into each other, meaning Jimmy was Timmy and Timmy was Jimmy. Spongebob was able to turn into his friend Patrick Star. Renamon smirked a little bit, at the progressing students.
"Ok, now that you learned the technique I'd say you guys earned a nights rest. Be warned training may be a bit harder tomorrow." Renamon forewarned.
"Great, another day with another annoying teacher slave driving us." Eddy muttered as the tired students began to make their way to their rooms. When Ed and Eddy got to their rooms, they saw Edd reading the journal and not having a single scratch on him. Edd turned to see his friend Eddy, who was boiling with anger.
"May I help you with something?" Edd asked.
"Why isn't there a scratch on you? What was your training?" Eddy asked, as he began to grind his teeth.
"Well, Renamon suggest I not be in her training since I was the only one without a weapon, so I was given a private magic tutor. I read exactly thirty books and I was able to generate a fireball." Edd explained.
"Like Harry Potter?" Ed asked.
"Sort of." Edd answered.
"So, just to clarify, you got a teacher that doesn't work you hard?" Eddy asked, clenching his teeth together.
"I suppose you could say that." Edd replied.
"Double D, how much magic training have you had?" Eddy asked.
"Well, not much, why?" Edd asked, which made Eddy generate an Aura Sphere and thrust it at Edd who dodged the blast in time. Eddy's Aura Sphere made contact with Edd's bed, making it explode into a thousand pieces. "Good Lord! Eddy were you attempting to injure me?" Edd asked.
"A little bit, yeah." Eddy admitted. "But now that you don't have a bed, goodnight." Eddy smirked as he plopped down on his bed while Ed did the same. Edd grinned, as they began to fall asleep. When he was sure that his friends were asleep, he pulled out his Comet Staff and waved it around his bed remains. This caused the bed pieces to turn back into a whole bed. Edd grinned and laid down on his newly made bed.
The Eds and Nicktoons, excluding two teens by the name of Edd and Timmy, were in the courtyard again. Eddy and Danny looked around for their missing teammates. Eddy had an idea where Edd was, but not Timmy. Renamon walked over to the five teens.
"Timmy and Eddward will not be here for training. They are being trained privately, because they are special cases." Renamon explained.
"Ok, so what are we going to be doing today?" Danny asked.
"Today we'll be learning a new technique." Renamon stated. "It is known as the Clone Technique." Renamon stated as a copy of her self appeared.
"This allows you to create an illusion of yourself to fool enemies." the copy of Renamon explained.
"Cool," Eddy stated as he started to try it. A puff of smoke appeared next to Eddy. When the smoke cleared, a badly drawn version of Eddy was at his feet.
"If the technique is done incorrectly, it may create a bad version of one's self." Renamon stated looking at the poor excuse of the clone.
"Can I sit out of this training?" Danny asked. "I can duplicate myself in my Ghost-form and its solid, not thin air."
"Actually, you can move onto the last technique you guys will learn." Renamon handed Danny a kunai. "It's called the 'walking on vertical edges' technique. This technique can be very useful if your ghost powers are gone. I want you to walk up that wall without using your ghost powers. This technique will help you balance your human and ghost powers. I want you to use the Kunai so you can mark how far you went up."
"Fine." Danny started to try and walk up the wall, only to fall flat on his back.
As the two Eds and three Nicktoons began their training, Timmy was walking in the corridors with a hooded figure. The hooded figure was quiet, making Timmy a bit nervous. Timmy decided to start up the conversation.
"So, uh why am I here?" Timmy asked.
"You need to know how to use your weapon." The mysterious figure stated.
"How can I use it? There's no arrows in the quiver." Timmy bluntly stated.
"Your quiver can generate arrows, if the user uses his imagination." The mysterious figure stated.
"Really?" Timmy asked.
"Try thinking about an arrow." The mysterious figure suggested. Timmy began to think about an arrow, and when he looked in his quiver, he saw an arrow with a star-shaped tip.
"Awesome!" Timmy shouted.
"Now, how about I teach you a cool secret no one else will know?" The mysterious figure offered.
"Even awesomer!" Timmy shouted.
As Timmy was taught by the mysterious person, Edd was in the castle's basement practicing his magic with Krystal.
"Now, the magic in your spell book acts as a tether." Krystal explained "The reason I asked if you had a photographic memory is because the book will use the memories of what you learn in case you need help to remember the spell."
"That sounds very useful." Edd smiled.
"Now, use the fire spell you used on my stew on these boulders." Krystal stated, as she pointed toward the enormous rocks. Edd began to channel his aura into his Comet Staff and spell book, which made the spell book glow and float in mid-air. Edd launch a fire ball from his staff and blasted the boulder to pieces. "Nice job. You can also use other types of magic, such as; ice, water, thunder, wind, earth and the great cosmoses." Krystal stated.
"Intriguing." Edd stated.
Back with the five Jujitsu learning students...
Danny was struggling with the vertical walk on the wall technique. Eddy was able to create a well drawn clone, as were the other four heroes.
"You're all improving faster than anticipated. I think you deserve tomorrow off." Renamon offered, which made all five of them stop what they were doing. "That goes for Double D and Timmy as well."
"Nice, we get a break from all this training." Danny stated.
"Awesome!" A voice shouted from behind them, which made them turn around to see Edd and Timmy.
"Nice to see you guys." Jimmy stated.
"Double D, did you hear?! We get a day off!" Ed shouted as he ran over to Edd.
"That's good to hear." Edd smiled.
"The reason why you guys are having this small break is because you'll soon be thrust into fights like never before." Renamon stated.
"Spoilsport." Eddy muttered.
Chapter 5 is here. FYI its uber long.
I do not own Ed, Edd n Eddy, they belong to Cartoon Network.
I do not own Nicktoons Unite, they belong to THQ Games.
I also do not own Lucario or Renamon, or another surprise teacher I just added. I also do not own the new moves they learn.
Boom Chapter 5 and I got over my mental block with this. Also if your wondering who the mystery guy is. Wait til Chapter 6. Also I apologize to Naruto fans for ripping off their attacks, but come on, all Renamon knew was how to use was diamond storm and judo flips. And Krystal was the only sexy girl who could teach magic.
