Our history books regale us in the tale of monsters that roamed our earth, creatures with tails and scales that ruled over the humankind, governing the mortals with an iron fist and causing much bloodshed.
Image

They were terrible creatures that drank the blood of mortals and slaughtered their young, trying to take the earth for themselves.
Image

But where there are villains, there will also be heroes. Rising up among the ashes of what little humans were left was a group of mortals that conquered the beasts and repopulated their homes, bringing about an era of peace and prosperity.

The world was not always this broken. Humans used to live side by side in harmony, they could rest easy, knowing the Tower Society would protect them. A unity of demons and humans, working together to end the pestilence that plagued their world. Fellow demons, wrecking havoc upon the unsuspecting. It was the job of the Tower Society to put them down before they became a threat.

It was the Third Impact that nearly ended the world. London had become a war zone, Berlin had fallen, becoming completely overtaken by the demon race. All over the world, demon nests began to attack upon the human populace. Japan was the only country safe from the attack and many fled for safety, the small island nation forced to shutter its borders to protect its own people. The humans were left to fend for themselves.

Things had finally began to calm, but the demons united with the vampires. The humans formed a new alliance and another war began, this time against the undead. When all seemed lost and the vampires began to gain territory, they vanished. As though it were some sort of nightmare, or perhaps a distorted memory, the world began to build anew. On the forefront of the rebuilding were the poster children of the Tower Society. Christopher Delanore and Doll King, their notoriety spreading far and wide, hailed as the heroes who ended the Third Impact.

The world is not perfect, no, it is still far from it, but the humans could rest a bit easier, knowing that they were well cared for. Once more, sky scrapers rose, the walls around Paris fell. Life moved on, the world continued to turn. Humans would survive and thrive, as they always would. Granted, there were less of them. Due to the drop in population, pieces of nature began to return to the city. Trees as tall as buildings thrived, the walls of glass and steel skyscrapers becoming entwined with ivy. A new era on earth had begun.

Image
For some, the world was still frozen in time. They were eternally stuck, having fallen through the cracks. Broken beyond repair, they may never recover. The world did not care for their kind, it made no difference to the humans if they would ever see the light of day again. Troubled by emptiness, deemed a waste of time; they were sent away. Heaving through corrupted lungs, collecting names of the lovers that went wrong. Chasing visions of the future while trapped in the past, perhaps one day, they would be able to rejoin the world.

❝Why do I always end up destroying everything I've ever loved?❞

|| The Death of a Bachelor || Panic! At the Disco ||




Echo sat in front of the mirror. She had crawled out of bed, her legs uselessly dragging behind her. In her hand was a pair of scissors she had stolen from the nurse. Snip, her hair, it was too long. Snip, she didn't feel like Echo anymore. Snip, it was as though a stranger was wearing her skin each time she looked in the mirror. There was a knock on the door. Snip, 'Echo!" Snip! Someone ran forward, something clattered against the ground, but Echo was transfixed. "Echo, stop! How did you get scissors-" Melody, her hands clasped around them, stopping Echo from cutting another strand. Echo looked at the scissors in her hands, then up at Melody. "I-I h-h-ha-hate m-mys-s-s-self." Melody shook her head, hugging Echo in her arms. "Shh, shh, it's okay." Her hands touched Echo's cheeks, cool against her skin. "Everything will be okay," Melody looked at the scissors, easily prying them from Echo's grasp.

"Let me," Echo nodded, allowing Melody to cut the rest of her hair away. It grazed the bottom of her ears now; the length she had kept it at before. "Better?" Echo nodded and Melody lifted her, dragging Echo and the pole back towards the bed. "Don't hate yourself. You made your decision, didn't you?" Echo nodded once more. "We're all going to support you, alright?" She nodded again, embarrassed of the way she spoke, how she could not utter a sentence without stuttering. Wei had a theory that it wasn't the trauma, but the fact that the veins in her brain had thinned. With more blood flow, it would be easier to think and thus, the stutter would, in theory, resolve itself in a month or two.

Melody picked up the pudding cup she had been holding and brought it towards her sister. "Elliot said if you want to see Flo today, then you have to eat something a bit more solid. You just have to try it, alright?" Echo hesitated, this was the first step towards healing, wasn't it? Her hands shook as she took the pudding cup, Melody smiled, nodding encouragingly. She opened up the lid for her sister, who was too weak to do even that much on her own. "Here, I'll feed you, Doll will kill us if you get pudding on that fancy nightgown." It was four bites before Echo could not take anymore, she began to vomit, Melody having been fast enough to grab a bucket. Echo leaned back against the bed, tears welling up in her eyes. "Hey, it's alright, you tried. Okay? One step at at a time!"

Melody left when the nurse came, she had other things she needed to do, namely going on missions. There were more important things and yet, Echo felt warm, knowing that her sister had come to see her. Their relationship had always been rocky, but now... they supported her. No matter how awful she had been in the past. No matter how many slurs she had thrown at them. They were still here, trying to help her, trying to fix everything they had lost. Perhaps it was guilt eating away at them. Perhaps they were simply trying to make up for putting her in that jail the first time, but Echo was glad, even if she would never admit it. "Ready for group therapy?" The nurse asked as she set Echo in the chair. "Y-yes," she whispered, eager to see Flo.

❝In the ocean of despair, what lure keeps the fish swimming?❞

|| The Ballad of Mona Lisa|| Panic! At the Disco ||




Today Flo would get to meet Echo. But before that, she was in a meeting with Wei, who had something to talk to her about. He had a picture in his hands that he wanted to show her. They were in a boardroom, which was a little bit more comfy than the stifling rooms on the mental health ward that used to be the birth mother ward. "Who's this? And why?" Flo frowned, crossing her legs. It was nice to see Wei was doing well enough, and with the promise that she would get so see Echo again Flo calmed down a little bit. "You should recognize her." Wei said with a half smile, holding the photo up for Flo to gawk at. It was a blonde girl with sharp blue eyes and a harsh gaze... and she looked very similar to someone Flo once knew.

"Is her last name Blackwood?" Flo asked, narrowing her eyes suspiciously. What could this be about? "Yes, actually." Wei said with a small twinkle in his eye. He was getting old now, but he was ever as kind as always whenever he could be. He wanted to be a different kind of Director than the cold and unfeeling woman Flo's mother once was. "Amelia Blackwood became a Jaeger in order to get the funds to buy her younger sister a life. As you know, Amelia's mother was a prostitute and didn't use protection. As a result, she had two daughters." Flo remembered how much Amelia always hated her mother and vowed not to become like her. "And now Sana Blackwood wants to become a Tower Agent."

There could only be one reason why Wei was bringing this up with her right now. "Is she compatible with me?" Wei nodded, a solemn look in his eyes. "You're strong enough to keep her safe. Stallion died in the war, and her wish was always to keep her younger sister safe to live a long life. She has the right to join and fight, but I want to honor Stallion's final wish. I believe you could do it." Flo frowned, furrowing her eyebrows. "But I wanted to be partners with Echo again." Wei chuckled a little. "She's also compatible with another demon, I believe her name is Ayna Anranrara." That was yet another surprise. "Well, just think about it, alright?"

Flo had plenty of things to say to Echo once she saw her again. Ayna looked bored as she played with her fingernails and the other demons were there as well. Flo sat next to Ayna but she was most eager to see Echo. This was her and Ayna's first time in Group Therapy, they had never been here before. "Echo..." Flo's eyes went wide when she saw her friend after so long, looking unwell and her poor hair looked chopped up as well. She scanned her partner's body to check and see if there was anything wrong, but it was no more wrong than the normal besides the hair problem. So she was stable now? "Let's get rank 10." She said with a smile, deciding to wait on the Sana Blackwood news until later. "Now." Elliot cleared his throat to get everyone's attention. "Today is Fluorspar and Ayna's first time joining us, so why don't you all show them how we do things here at Group Therapy?"

Echo shifted in her wheelchair as the nurse pushed her, Melody had done her best with Echo's hair and the demon rather liked it, back to the length she had kept it at before Belgium. "There you go, I'll come pick you up afterwards and we'll try some pudding for lunch, alright?" Echo nodded, watching the nurse leave. She reached for the wheels, rolling closer to Flo and a demon Echo didn't recognize. "F-F-Flo," Echo stuttered. She was glad to see her friend, glad to see that she was alright. "Y-yes," Echo smiled, "I-I w-wa-want t-to g-ge-get to r-r-rank te-ten." She and Flourspar had been so close, they were nearly there when Echo had taken a sword to the chest and had died, after sneaking out to be on a mission she was never supposed to go on.

Elliot entered, Oliver slinking in behind him. "Everyone ready?" They sat in a circle, "today we're going to be making bead bracelets." Bead bracelets? Not only was group therapy supposed to be sensory friendly for everyone, it also served as acriviries to help motor function. As many of them had issues with coordination. "Oliver, will you hand out the strings?" Elliot asked, taking a seat in their circle. "Now, normally during Group Therapy we sit quietly, but since things are a bit different, I want to encourage everyone to share their feelings. How are you all doing after the move to this new place?" Elliot needed to make certain of course that his patients were faring well and there was no better place to express worry than in group therapy, where others could feel and ease it.

Echo took her string, her hands shaking terribly as she was given a small bowl of beads, her fingers attempted to grasp one, latching onto a red one. Red, like her eyes had been, the color of blood. Echo focused as she attempted to string the bead onto the piece of yarn. "I hate it here!" Allison suddenly yelled, dropping her bowl. The beads went rolling, Allison grabbed at her hair, pulling it, her ears twitching wildly. "We're too close to the Impact! They're going to kill us all!" She slid out of her chair, sobbing. "I don't like it either," Bex twitched, a group of broken demons, all stuck in a room together. It would be easy to revolt if they had a reason to. "It's going to be alright," Elliot rose, helping Allison back into her seat as she sobbed, her beads rolling across the ground. "Change takes some time to get used to," his smile was serene, calming. "We all just need to take this one step at a time."

One step at a time... Echo had two beads on her string now. "Angel, what's wrong?" Elliot asked once he had calmed Bex and Allison down. Angel blinked, looking at the string in her hands. "I-I don't know," she held up the string, "this... reminds of me someone... but I can't-" she stopped, wincing, "I can't remember," Angel placed her hands against her head, it was clear she was in pain. "Oliver, why don't you escort Angel back to her room so she can rest?" Oliver nodded, Echo looked down at her beads, she had picked up the third one. "F-F-Flo h-ho-how a-are y-you fe-feel-feeling?" Echo wanted to know, speaking quietly.

❝In the ocean of despair, what lure keeps the fish swimming?❞

Flo did not really know what to expect here for group therapy. She had never really had therapy before, not in a mental sense. There was never time for it when things were serious because she was always needed on the frontlines as a member of Team Lupin and her mother would never give her a break because there were demons that needed to be killed, and pieces of the Seed of Yggdrasil that needed to be gathered. Elliot was speaking and introducing her and Ayna, the two new girls to the group therapy party. "Let's do it for real this time." Flo said with a slightly wavering smile. She and Echo never got past Rank 6 before the Third Impact happened. Would they be able to reach the top this time after being broken and mangled so many times?

They were apparently going to be making bracelets out of beads today. Flo frowned as she stared at the materials, wondering how the heck she was supposed to be able to get the strings through the holes of the beads. It would be hard, that much was certain. Flo picked the pink and yellow beads, reminding her of her old team. Elliot wanted to know how everyone was getting along in this new place, this new facility which was remodeled from an old facility that was full of pain and sadness. The birth mother ward was one of the darkest things the Tower Society ever did to anyone. "It's okay I guess." Ayna murmured, not inclined to share her past so easily. Elliot took note of that but said nothing, probably to allow her to speak whenever she felt comfortable. The way Ayna looked on edge, Flo had to wonder if it had something to do with the birth mother ward.

"I'm okay. I just want to get out of here." She murmured with a roll of the eye. "I'm obviously perfectly fine, just like new, Echo." She totally never had breakdowns anymore or anything, that's for sure. Flo made her best smile but for some reason she felt like crying. She stared into Echo's beautiful eyes and took a deep, labored breath, coughing a few times as she irritated her lungs. "And you'll be too. And then we'll climb the ladder all over again." She grinned, pink eyes wobbling. "Do - do you think they'll let us keep our Rank Six or will we have to start all over?"

All of a sudden Flo's hands began to tremble and she didn't know why. Her eyes went wide and she tilted her head. Why were her hands trembling so much? Why did her legs feel so weak? Why couldn't she get a single string through a single bead? She glared at the pink bead but the string kept going to the side or outside and not inside the hole like it was supposed to. "Why won't it work?!" Flo growled, agitated. Nothing was working, nothing was as it was supposed to be. Useless, she was so useless, she couldn't even make a bead bracelet! What kind of worthless animal was she? "S-so how are you, Echo?" The pinkette asked, her voice breaking a little.

Echo nodded, a small smile on her face, the first one in days. Elliot took notice of everything that happened around him of course, slowly writing it down under each patient name. Progress, regression, it was all made note of on his tablet. 'Y-yeah," Echo looked at her lap, blushing slightly. She wanted to make it to rank 10, she had never been up that high on the totem pole. She would be at Doll's level, people would look up to her. How was she going to get there? Like this, Echo couldn't even look anyone in the eye. Her hands tightened into fists, she could do this. Elliot had said he would help her, if that was her decision. She wanted to get better, she didn't want to stay this weak. Echo looked around the room, at Gem, happily stringing her beads, at Ash, silently brooding, refusing to touch the string.

Was anyone on this floor truly happy? Was she the only one that had noticed it? Perhaps Echo was merely used to war, an agent of chaos, but this false sense of peace did not sit well with her. It could also be because she had not been allowed such a thing. No, from the time she was born, Echo was never allowed to rest. Now, she was simply expected to retire quietly? It just seemed... strange. Did she really want to go back to war and fighting? To be a tool for other's to use, to live everyday knowing she could die at any second? Echo didn't know, but she knew one thing. She didn't want to live in this rehabilitation facility any longer than she had to. Even if she could never fight again, Echo knew that she would rather try than live with this false peace.

"I-I w-wa-want t-t-to ge-get ou-out t-t-too." Echo stuttered, hating herself even more for her weakness. She was the only one here that had a problem with it, why? Why couldn't she speak normally? Why couldn't she do that much without breaking down and wanting to cry? At least Flo was okay, at least she was awake, she was moving, albeit slowly. "I-I th-thi-think w-we-we'll ha-have t-t-to st-start ag-ag-again." Echo blushed, wondering why she couldn't utter that much without wanting to die of embarrassment. She looked down at the beads in her hands, her hands which trembled with every breath. It was a miracle she could even move them, was what Elliot had said after her first evaluation. In truth, most of the nerves in Echo's body were shot.

"I-it-it'll b-be ok-okay," Echo whispered as Flo began to panic about her beads not working. "S-s-see?" Echo showed Flo that it was hard for her too. They were both broken to bits, they were both in need of being put back together. Flo asked how she was and suddenly Echo no longer wanted to put beads on her string. There were only four beads on it so far. Echo closed her eyes, how was she doing? She had not thought about it, she had avoided thinking about it. Every part of her body had been violated, she was broken, battered, bruised. She had wanted to die. "I-I'm o-ok-oka-okay," Echo whispered in a lie.
