Marko Levett

"I don't understand how anybody does anything. People have terrible ideas!"

0 · 1,063 views · located in City, City

a character in “Sound Effects”, as played by H3R0

Description

Image
"{Superheroes are fictional for a reason. They don't exist, not for real. Sure, you can call a guy a hero for saving your cat, but he's not a superhero. Find a guy who flies up that tree to save the cat, then we'll talk.}"





GENERAL INFORMATION





Image

"{There's nothing interesting to say about me. Please don't ask me to describe myself because, wow, no, I have no idea. I'd say 'who am I,' but that sounds all philosophical when really I'm not that deep at all.}"



Nickname(s)/Alias(es):
Mr. Brightside

Gender:
Male

Age:
17




APPEARANCE





Image

"{Uh? Me? I don't know what I look like. I guess I'm not ugly? Right? Ohmygod am I ugly?? Do you think I'm ugly?? Great thanks. Now I have that to think about for the rest of my life.}"


Description:
Marko isn't a bad looking guy, but he's not someone who could stand out from a crowd. He wouldn't be someone a girl would point to and whisper about to her friends while blushing and giggling over how they wished he would come over and say anything to him. He's more of the blending-in type, average, maybe just a tad above it, but not by much, not at all. He keeps himself looking moderately good and well kept together on the outside so nobody can tell how much he's falling apart on the inside (oh relax, it's not that dramatic!).

His hair's the messiest part about him since that's what he generally uses to take out his anxieties and worries. He'll pull and tug at it so much in a day that it's a wonder he has any left at all. If anyone were to tell him that they considered him good looking, or had a feature that stuck out, he'd probably need a few minutes to regroup.

Preferred Clothing:
He pretty much dresses as average as he looks. His clothes are clean, but there's only a few outfits that he'll wear basically all the time. He isn't creative when it comes to clothing and he prefers showing off his favorite superhero, gaming, anime, etc. shirts in hopes of making a connection with anyone who recognizes it. It doesn't seem to happen as often as he'd like it to.




MENTALITY





Image

"{Wh-what? You wanna know about me? If you wanted to know that, read a book or something! Wait, no, that doesn't make any sense. I'm not in a book. Who'd ever write a book about me anyway? Oh crap, right, me, uh. I can't handle this kind of pressure!}"


Oddities:
His entire sleeping schedule is so totally screwed up to the point that he's much more lively at night than he is during the day, and the way he acts around others has been effected by this. He's the type of person who doesn't need too much sleep to survive off of though.

Skills:
He knows a wide variety of random facts about superheroes, games, and shows that, for the most part, nobody in real life ever seems to care about. The majority of it is useless, but you never know.

Fears/Phobias:
-Dying. Anything can happen at any time! Of course, being a hero sounds cool and all, but those guys face death every day! How could he possibly do something like that!?

-Being alone. What if he died alone and forgotten without making his mark on the world? Or without anyone to hear his final words before losing his very last breath? That would be the worst!

-A bunch of general things. Blood, bugs, things that go bump in the night, fighting, yelling--you name it, he's probably scared of it in some way, shape, or form. And if he's not at first, once it's mentioned, he'll probably figure out an unorthodox way to make himself fear it eventually.

Likes:
-Superheroes
-Supervillains
-Fiction
-Late nights
-Movies
-Anime
-Manga/comics
-Wikipedia

Dislikes:
-Realism
-Rainy days
-Dangers
-Bugs
-Crowds
-Bullies

Personality:
Marko is a complete mess either way you look at it. He may manage to keep himself composed on the outside, but the second he opens his mouth, all those things he keeps locked up inside of him come pouring out like they're overstuffed in their prison; they come out reckless and ready to ruin the world. Rarely is it that he speaks and anything good goes for him, whether it be that he ruined the moment, killed the joke, or just brought to attention something that never would of, or should of, been considered before. He has so much buzzing around inside his head at all times that he simply finds it hard to manage and keep organized, so sometimes things that weren't supposed to slip out, do, and he almost always finds himself instantly regretting it and profusely apologizing and running his mouth even more. Sometimes, once he gets himself started, it's hard to get him to stop.

Anxious, neurotic, obsessive compulsive, just a general bundle of nerves. It's a wonder how Marko makes it through his day without panicking himself to death, but he manages to hold himself together, if only barely. He's a complete worrier and tends to bury his worries in fictional worlds about people greater than he ever believes he could even dream to be, although he'd like to someday. But that's stupid, right? Deep down, he's a genuinely good guy. He cares more about others than he does himself and he wouldn't hesitate to help a guy who shoved his face into his own lunch just the day before. He worries about the impression he makes on people and he only hopes it's a good one, although he doubts that too.

Overall, Marko is much smarter and much more capable than he lets on. He seems like he could fall apart at any moment, like some peppy blond's shaky little chihuahua, but he's dealt with being this way his entire life and he's managed this long. If only anyone would give him a chance to prove himself.




HISTORY





"{People make mistakes all the time. I know I do. So what's to say that I'm not one myself? I mean, I mean, you know, hear me out. Ugh, I opened my mouth again. I'm not really this depressing, I swear!}"


Personal History/Background:
Marko hasn't had that bad of a life. He lives with his single father, but it's never been much of an issue to him because he never even knew his mom. And how could you miss someone you never met? So he doesn't. He's always had a very narrow view of the world, even since he was a child, and just grew up and into the person he is today. His dad is the same, if not worse, so it's not very surprising that he probably just got it from him. Aside from a few typical teenage happenings from being picked on a time or two, he hasn't had a completely hard life other than what he puts himself through. To calm his worries, he dove into the world of superheroes and comic books and all things fictional because those worlds are great and it's what he wishes his world could be.

Theme Song:
That's Okay
{You were a child who was made of glass.
You carried a black heart passed down from your dad.
If somebody loved you, they'd tell you by now;
We all turn away when you're down.

You want to go back to where you felt safe,
To hear your brother's laughter,
See your mother's face.
Your childhood home is just powder-white bones
And you'll never find your way back.

And when you're gone, will they say your name?
And when you're gone, will they love you the same?
If not, that's okay.
If not, that's okay.

You are broken and callow,
Cautious and safe;
You are boundless in beauty
With fright in your face.
Until someone loves you,
I'll keep you safe,
But like them, I will give you away.

And when you're gone, will they say your name?
And when you're gone, will they love you the same?
If not, that's okay.

And when you're gone, will they say your name?
And when you're gone, will they love you the same?
Oh, when you're gone, we won't say a word.
But you know that's okay.
Don't you know that's okay?}

So begins...

Marko Levett


It was a dark and stormy night. All seemed well, the city slept in peace, but little did its citizens know the dangers that lurked on the horizon, just out of view. There was only one who could protect this sleepy little city, a man chosen from the depths of the night with the strength of a thousand men and the unmatched courage of--

"It's three in the morning."

Marko turned in his computer chair, the kind with the wheels that spun if he believed hard enough, and faced his dad standing in the doorway. He'd been in the process of preparing a speech for the thankless citizens of Doomsville but now he'd lost all of that and he was stuck back in reality trying to figure out why his dad was in his room telling him the time. The only thing that came to mind to do was to glance at the clock and, sure enough, it was exactly three o' clock on the dot, and since sunshine wasn't burning its way through his window like the fiend it was, the 'in the morning' bit made plenty of sense. "You're right," he replied, already feeling stupid for it. What else was he supposed to say?

His dad stared at him, almost unbelieving, but opted not to say anything further. Instead, he sighed and pinched the bridge of his nose like this was one of the most difficult parts of his day. "I shouldn't see you wide awake before I go to work this early in the morning." He'd gone to sleep hours ago to prepare himself for the early work day ahead of him. Mr. Levett did not need this in his morning routine, but it was starting to become one, and he was wondering if there was anything he could do about it, or if he should even bother with it at all. Marko's grades were exceptional, so really, what did he have to worry about as a father? He assumed his son had the mental stability not to go out running around town in a mask and cape and his underwear over his pants pretending to be some sort of superhero. "Just. Get some sleep." The door shut quietly behind him and Marko returned to his dolls--action figures, thank you. He knew his dad would be out for the remainder of the day, he just had to wait for it.

He woke up at around ten in the morning and lazed around the entire time until it was finally time to leave. He packed all his necessities up in a bag--including action figures, costume, notes, and the weekly newspaper that he was pretty sure his dad was done with. And snacks. Can't forget the snacks. He arrived at the small building a little earlier than anyone was asked to and took out the newspaper, laying it on the table in front of him before wandering around for anyone else. "Nothing's going to happen today, anyway. I don't know why we bother."

Gabriel Sonnet


The click and movement of a controller echo through a small room. A light flickers from a stupidly big TV and two a character runs around, swiping at random things. Gabriel sits on the end of his bed, biting his lip in concentration while aggressively slamming down on buttons. He crosses his legs without thinking before the screen shows the words 'GAME OVER' and he throws the controlled to the ground, screaming into his pillow with absolute rage, before he breathes and calms himself down. "Goddamn." he mutters, throwing himself back onto the pillow.

It's only ten in the morning. He'd woken up three hours ago when his alarm went and he'd decided it was time for some hardcore gaming. But he'd died and forgotten to save. So he might as well rest up and then get up, ready to face the day and ready to face all his UNKNOWN ENEMIES. I mean, who else was going to save the day? The answer was not the police. The police had nothing against the unknown villain soon to present himself to the world and cause mass mania. Only one group of heroes could save the day, and that group was. . . SFX!

By this point in his thoughts, Gabe was standing up on his bed, his super hero pose in play and he jumped, imitating flying. God, he was so cool. At least, he thought he was. "I'm totally cool." He laughed, before checking the time. He ran into the bathroom and got dressed in the usual- an overly big hoodie and slightly (though not overly) tight jeans. He was wearing a pink shirt under his grey hoodie. "Pink." he said, sighing. Why did he always pick pink? It wasn't like he wasn't pink enough already.

His bag got stuffed with food and his costume, plus his gaming figurines (Dolls? DOLLS? No, these were sophisticated action figurines.) He arrived at the small building a few minutes early, so he shut off the lights. He knew who would be there. Gabe laughed and pressed play on the sound system. The Circle of Life began playing and he changed the lighting so he was in the spotlight. It was a ridiculous moment and he chose a new song everyday. It was the drill, and it certainly was a good thing they were in an abandoned theater. He stood there for a while, before flicking the lights back on.

"So, hiya, Marko." Gabe laughed, running over to the table. He put his hands on the boy's cheeks. "We have a big, BIG day ahead of us my friend! But first, snacks!" He pulled the crisps and drinks out of his bag. "Where is everyone? I'm not that early. I'm totally awesome, and awesome people aren't late. Are they, Marko? God, I could do with a coffee. Not that I don't have energy. I always have energy. Can you tell?" Gabe put his feet up onto the chair next to him. "This could be a friggin' epic day, or it could just be another normal day. Fate, man. FATE."

Gabriel always did know how to make an entrance, not like normal people who just walked in and sat down peacefully like Marko. No, he had to play the obnoxious soundsystem and act it up like he was on an entire stage of people. Who was he playing it up for? It was just the two of them, and while Marko admired his enthusiasm, he wasn't all that awed by his performance, if it could even be called that. He didn't mention it out loud, but he was pretty sure that if he had any flashcards on him he'd write a 2 and a 4 on them and hold them up to rate the entrance.

But he supposed Gabriel didn't need him to rain on his parade. "So, hiya, Marko." Marko didn't even have a chance to respond or prepare himself before hands were being pushed into his cheeks, invading his precious personal space. "Where is everyone? I'm not that early. I'm totally awesome, and awesome people aren't late. Are they, Marko? God, I could do with a coffee. Not that I don't have energy. I always have energy. Can you tell?" It was hard not to. He was practically gushing energy. The theater hadn't been so bright until Gabe strode in and infected the place with his sparkling personality. He wished he wasn't being so literal. "This could be a friggin' epic day, or it could just be another normal day. Fate, man. FATE."

Marko pulled the newspaper over to him and looked it over. "Whatever you're going on about, I don't think today's gonna be that day." He frowned and flipped through the pages. He already read the entire thing over that morning, searching for anything that seemed like it could strike their interests. They hadn't had anything good going for them in days. Maybe that's why none of the others bothered showing up. All they ended up doing was talking about the flaws of the different people who played each hero and never going out and actually saving anyone because nobody even needed saving. "I'm starting to think, what's the point?" Oh, did he say that out loud? It wasn't supposed to be out loud.

There wasn't a cat within a hundred mile radius that needed to be helped out of a tree or an old lady anywhere who needed help crossing the street. And this was the real world. "What're we expecting anyway? Like, some Godzilla to come out of the water and start smashing buildings?" He swallowed nervously as he considered that scenario in complete detail. "What could we even do if something like that happened?! It'd squish us!"

He sighed and passed the paper over to Gabe, keeping it on the page about some construction workers digging up some cave. He didn't think it was anything worth bringing up, though, so he just decided to let Gabe go over the paper to see if he could find anything he couldn't. "I don't think the others are showing up any time soon." They weren't that early, but they probably had things to do, people to see, lives to live, while he and Gabe were holed up in an unused theater talking about things that definitely didn't matter in the real world.

"Whatever you're going on about, I don't think today's gonna be that day." Gabe turned his head towards Marko and shrugged. It may not be that day, but it sure could well be and he could keep all the hope in the world, which seemed to be what he had. He took a swig of his overly sugary drink; the drink would not help with his current hyper state of mind. "I'm starting to think, what's the point?"

Now this was getting his attention. What the hell was Marko going on about? The point of what? The point of SFX?! Gabe stayed silent with curiosity. "What're we expecting anyway? Like, some Godzilla to come out of the water and start smashing buildings? What could we even do if something like that happened?! It'd squish us!" Marko said, sounding frightened, worried. Gabriel grinned. That would be perfect! It would be a sure rise to superhero fame if they could defeat a Godzilla-like monster! It would be totally awesome! They'd be the worlds biggest mysteries since no one would know who they were! There's a chance of death, but you're dying in HONOR! You tried to save your city for god's sakes!

Gabe got passed some newspaper, the article a cave construction. Why would it make the news? It's just a cave. Gabriel read into the article and got excited as he skimmed the words quickly, before looking at the picture. Something felt... Off about the cave. Gabe could hear Marko saying something about the others not coming, but he ignored it, his eyes fixed on the article. This cave could be the secret hideout of the villain he'd been waiting forever to defeat! The mining of the cave had been annulled for no reason and the officials responsible refused to give a statement as to why. The redhead's eyes twinkled brightly. He was losing hope though. Marko's words rung truth in his mind, but he wanted to try. He had to try! He couldn't just grow up and be forgotten. Gabe needed to find a way to be remembered.

His mind started weighing in at this point. There was no way, oh god, no way he could be alone forever. He was already so lonely all the time - this couldn't be a constant state! No, he has to work to get him names in the lights! Then, he'd always have people to keep close and safe. But right now, he had Marko. And that was perfect because he wasn't alone. He reached across the table and grabbed the blond's hands.

"You, Marko, are a genius!" Gabe exclaimed, his eyes sparking something wildly energetic. "You are a complete and utter genius! You deserve a Nobel Prize- no, a Genius Award! It would have your name plastered in the front and would be in the shape of your wonderful mind!" Gabe had let go of Marko's hands by now and was on the table, gesturing his arms around himself wildly. "Let's go right now! Bring your bag- Bring your COSTUME!" Gabriel slung his backpack onto his back and leaped from the table excitedly, hopping on his feet. "C'mon Marko, hurry up! We need to save the world, and everything's going to change today!"

Marko saw the physical change in Gabe before the other boy could even say anything. The room around him sparkled up twice as much as it had before and he just knew that he was brewing an idea in his head. Marko swallowed nervously, waiting for him to get on with it. He knew whatever it was, it couldn't be good for the sake of their safety. He had no idea where he could even get any ideas from all of a sudden. "You, Marko, are a genius!" Oh, god, what did he do now? Did he say something? He didn't remember saying anything, but sometimes he said things without realizing it. He certainly hadn't thought of anything. "You are a complete and utter genius! You deserve a Nobel Prize- no, a Genius Award! It would have your name plastered in the front and would be in the shape of your wonderful mind!"

Oh, great, he was definitely on to something now. Marko took a helpless look around the room as someone else in the club would suddenly arrive to save him from whatever adventure Gabe was trying to drag them into now. Where was Superman when you needed him? He was sure whatever it was couldn't be safe. "Let's go right now! Bring your bag- Bring your COSTUME!" He hoped they weren't going to the mall to rally some protesters away from the poor food court workers again because last time they tried that, in costume, it hadn't gone so well. The protest never got violent because all the people were too busy laughing at the two idiots in costume. "C'mon Marko, hurry up! We need to save the world, and everything's going to change today!"

Marko grabbed his bag and groaned, throwing his gaze up to the silent with a silent plea that someone save him before he got dragged into this alone, but no such savior arrived and the next thing he knew he was being dragged out of the room and out to who knows where with a pink-obsessed eccentric. It was too hot outside and as they were walking through the city, he found himself looking around in the hopes of finding any one of their friends, but he doubted they'd be out this way anyway. Speaking of, now that he took notice, they were kind of out of the way of the city, heading to the outskirts.

Wait. Wasn't this...? "Are we going to that cave?!" What was even down there anyway? There was obviously nothing good about it if the workers decided they didn't need to keep working on it! Maybe they thought it was too dangerous to let their workers down there! What if they went down there and got caved it? Batman wasn't going to roll up in the Batsmobile and save their stupid behinds before they got crushed by debris!

Sure enough, that's where they ended up. Marko stared at the mouth of the cave. "There's no way we're actually going in there, right? I mean, there's probably bats and snakes, and bugs. Oh man, there's probably so many bugs. Do you know what kinds of things live in these places!?" He bit his lip as he adjusted the bag on his back, fidgeting nervously with one of the straps. "There's nothing here anyway, right? Isn't that why they stopped working on it? All we're gonna find here is dust and scaly creatures."

Gabriel practically giggled the entire way there. "Are we going to that cave?!" The redhead almost burst with excitement. It was a wonder he stayed quiet all the way to their destination

"There's no way we're actually going in there, right? I mean, there's probably bats and snakes, and bugs. Oh man, there's probably so many bugs. Do you know what kinds of things live in these places!?" Marko was biting his lip, staring at the cave. "There's nothing here anyway, right? Isn't that why they stopped working on it? All we're gonna find here is dust and scaly creatures."

"That's the entire point!" Gabe laughed. Marko could be so silly sometimes. Gabriel was convinced that he was just joking around with him. "Anything could live here! Anyone could live here! Oh Marko! The answer is so simple!" The boy jumped up and down for a few moments, before he grabbed Marko's arms and tugged him inside. The cave was completely dark so Gabriel stopped for a few seconds, excitedly fishing his torch from his bag. His hand closed around it and he flicked the dim light on, seeing his surroundings. There were no bats, no creepy crawlies, nothing. "That's... strange." He said, his eyes drifting around along with the torchlight. It even felt like the air was static. The mood weighed down on them, a dark aura from deep within the cave.

Though slightly disturbed, Gabriel carried on warily, not letting go of Marko's arm. "C-Come on. I think it leads over here." He laughed nervously, pulling Marko along the path. They walked for a little while before they then turned a corner, a bright light emerging from the end of the cave. "Marko, Marko, look! Look how bright it is!" Finally, he let go of Marko's arm and rushed towards the brightness. He found it strange, as if the light were swallowing him whole. The air suddenly got cold, going to freezing temperatures, but Gabriel was so sure the thing about to change his life was in the light. If only he could... reach...

Gabriel stretched his arm out, fully surrounded by light turquoise lights, his fingers reaching into the brightness. It was at that point where the light faded out and he felt his head spin rapidly, whirling around and around as he thudded against the floor.

"That's the entire point!" The entire point was to get eaten by man-eating bats and giant cave snakes?! Yeah, great point. Fantastic. Remind me never to invite him to the debate team. "Anything could live here! Anyone could live here! Oh Marko! The answer is so simple!" That's what he said, but... Marko couldn't help but get a bad feeling about the place, and it wasn't just because they were walking themselves underground in a mysterious, abandoned cave where nobody knew to look to find them if the died. No, there was more than that. It was deeper than that. It was just... It didn't feel right. It didn't feel right at all and he wanted to leave.

There was no way Gabe couldn't be feeling it too. "That's... strange." He seemed cold, nervous, which was strange for him, but despite the sensation, the two of them kept moving forward. Marko was afraid, but he felt compelled to find something that he didn't even know was there. "C-Come on. I think it leads over here." He started to wonder why there was even a path here. He didn't think the workers went this deep into the cave, but they must have if there was a path. What was the path leading to anyway? Wouldn't it just lead to a dead end? ...No, there was definitely something up there. "Marko, Marko, look! Look how bright it is!"

Gabe let go of his arm and Marko was sure he was going to go into a full on panic mode. "Wait, Gabe, don't touch it!" He knew his words didn't break through to him though. He knew when Gabe was interested in something this bad, it was already too late to get to him. But there was something off about the light. It was wrong. There wasn't any special glowy moss, no lights, nothing. There was no reason for the light to be there and yet here it was. It wasn't natural. And he didn't like it.

Then the light struck. It hit Gabe first as soon as he touched it and Marko wanted to scream, but it shot out of its existence and hit him soon after. It felt tingly and overhwhelming, but there was nothing he could do to get away before he passed out.

...Marko found himself waking up to complete darkness. He didn't remember where he was or what was going on, but the second his eyes opened, he was just as panicky as he'd always been about everything. His head was pounding, but otherwise, after a quick overall check, he seemed to be in one piece. "What happened..?" Then he remembered the light and...Gabe. He looked around, patting around in the darkness. He managed to grab the flashlight that Gabe brought in with him, but it wouldn't turn on. The battery must've died. How long had they been out? "Gabe, where are you? Are you okay?" Please be okay. Finally, he managed to reach out and find the body of his friend. There was another few seconds spend fumbling to find his heartbeat, but he found it and sighed in relief and shaking Gabe. "Come on, you have to wake up so we can get out of here. Ugh, you're such an idiot. I knew this was a bad idea."

Gabriel Sonnet


Gabriel felt eerie, like he was awake but he wasn't focused yet. He knew he was awake and he was sure he was alright, but his mind needed to adjust to what had just happened. Was he alone? Oh god, he couldn't be alone! Had he lost Marko? Was Marko just as solitary as he in the cave, searching for him? What had even happened? Gabriel didn't remember clearly; he remembered a lot of light and then even more darkness. But he couldn't be by himself in the darkness.

What if he could never find the exit? What if he was just trapped there forever, left alone to die in a cave? Gabriel was starting to panic, his breaths becoming quick as his eyes watered. Where was Marko? He was starting to freak out and in all truth, he had no idea where he was. Gabe felt himself being shamed but he wasn't... There. Not quite.

"...ou're such an idiot. I knew this was a bad idea." Gabe blinked and looked around. Pure darkness. But he knew it was Marko. He knew the voice and the presence. Something felt... weird about himself. As for what, he didn't know what it was.

He finally felt like he could speak. "Marko. Hi. Hey. Hi. Um." Wow, he could speak but he apparently couldn't form a normal sentence. Had he hit his head? No, his head felt fine. "Don't, um, don't let go of me." His voice was unnaturally shaky, like he was about to burst into tears or something, as well as sounding raspy. He clambered to sit up but knocked into Marko and made both of them fall over. Had he fallen on Marko? He couldn't tell. "Where's the uh... What's it called again? Oh yeah, the torch! That's the right word. Aha..."

Gabriel sighed. "Marko, where are we? What's happened?"

This was bad. This was so, so, so bad. He didn't know why or how just yet, but he knew it was bad. Wait, wasn't there a light? Where was the light? Did it just disappear? Maybe there was never any light. Maybe he just imagined it while he was knocked out. Maybe a rock smacked them both upside the heads and knocked them out until now. It seemed so real though! He swore he could remember it all so clearly. He remembered seeing it and Gabriel going up to it and...ugh. His head hurt, but not like he was hit with anything.

"Marko. Hi. Hey. Hi. Um." Oh, thank god. Even though Gabe was breathing, he thought he'd been too hurt to wake up. Marko wasn't sure what he'd do if that'd been the case. He couldn't pick Gabe up and drag him out without getting him hurt somehow. He would've been stuck alone in this pitch dark cave with an unconscious body, clueless and cold and scared, but Gabe woke up, so that meant everything was going to be okay. It was going to be okay. He needed to stop overthinking everything. He was beginning to panic over things that weren't even happening. Okay, good thoughts now. He was okay and Gabe was okay and everything was going to be okay. They just needed to get out of there.

How the hell were they supposed to get out of there? "Don't, um, don't let go of me." Marko swallowed nervously. He didn't like the tone in Gabe's voice, that little shake that told him he was afraid. He didn't want to know Gabe was afraid. If he was afraid, then Marko needed to be, and he was sick of being scared of everything. There was the sound of movement and the next thing Marko knew, he was being toppled over by a clumsy, pink-loving oaf. "Where's the uh... What's it called again? Oh yeah, the torch! That's the right word. Aha..." His nerves were starting to give way to annoyance. "Marko, where are we? What's happened?"

Marko took a second to catch his breath and gain back his bearings before deciding to reply. "We're in the cave. The one you dragged us to because you thought it'd be cool. Remember?" He groaned and sat up, feeling in front of him to make out Gabe's features. Right, there's his face. Right there. Way too close for comfort. "We're fine. I think. I mean, I'm gonna have nightmares for the rest of my life about this, maybe some therapy, but physically, I'm good. Are you okay?" He sighed lightly and grabbed the flashlight he'd dropped earlier. "It's right here, but it's broken."

He gently pushed Gabe off of him, holding onto his shoulder so he could use it to get to his feet without falling back over. Okay, okay, he was okay. He could walk, anyway. He grabbed Gabe's hand and helped him to his feet. "Can we leave please?" He squinted up ahead back the way he hoped they came. Oh, duh! Marko pulled out his cell phone, squinting at the sudden bright glow of the screen. Wow. "We were out for hours! It's nearly midnight! Oh man, my dad is going to kill me. I'm so dead. I'm the deadest dead to ever live." He turned the light towards Gabe's face, glaring at him in the dim light. "This is your fault! You just had to come out here. I told you something bad would happen!"

"We're in the cave. The one you dragged us to because you thought it'd be cool. Remember?" Of course he remembered. He was just hoping Marko would have been awake and then would have known where in the cave they were. Before he could voice all his thoughts, there were hands on his face. He raised an eyebrow, but he worked out that it was dark, Marko was just trying to make sense of things. Like his face. "We're fine. I think. I mean, I'm gonna have nightmares for the rest of my life about this, maybe some therapy, but physically, I'm good. Are you okay?" There was a shift of movement as Marko picked up the torch. "It's right here, but it's broken."

He heard Marko shift around again, and then his hand was in his own. He felt himself get pulled up and she stumbled slightly, managing to stay standing. "Can we leave please?" No, we were just gonna stand here all night. Camping in a cave. We could have a picnic- wait, no, we have no food. Gabe thought, biting his thumbnail. A bright light suddenly entered his view and his eyes closed quickly. "We were out for hours! It's nearly midnight! Oh man, my dad is going to kill me. I'm so dead. I'm the deadest dead to ever live." "This is your fault! You just had to come out here. I told you something bad would happen!"

Gabriel groaned. "Yeah, okay, sorry I'm human and I make mistakes. The deepest apologies." His arms waved at his sides, even unseen in the darkness. "I had completely planned for this to happen and, oh, now it has and it's midnight and this was all part of the stupid plan. That was my plan to a T." By this time, Gabe's voice had turned into an annoyed growl and he sighed, calming himself down. The light glared in his eyes.

"No, you're right." He asked after a while. "Sorry for bringing you out here." Gabe faked a big grin, tilting his head to the right. He fetched his phone from his bag and shined it on the route ahead, reaching back and holding Marko's hand. "Don't let go, okay? Don't want you lose you in a cave."

"Yeah, okay, sorry I'm human and I make mistakes. The deepest apologies. I had completely planned for this to happen and, oh, now it has and it's midnight and this was all part of the stupid plan. That was my plan to a T." The sarcasm was not helping Marko's mood. He didn't need to hear that right now. He needed to hear that they were going to get out of this stupid cave with their stupid phones lighting their stupid ways and that he wasn't going to get chewed out by his dad when he got home, which was where he planned to go immediately once they got out of this stupid, stupid place. "No, you're right." He found himself relaxing, dropping his shoulders and sighing. There was no point in getting mad. "Sorry for bringing you out here." Gabe's hand in his was comforting and he gave it a light squeeze in understanding. "Don't let go, okay? Don't want you lose you in a cave."

They were a lot farther back than he remembered going, although his memory was still a little fuzzy. It was hard to tell where the mouth of the cave was in the dark of the night. "Hey, Gabe? Do you...remember a light?" He still wasn't sure if that part had been real or if it was just something he'd made up, but if Gabe remembered it too then it had to be real. If that was how things really went, then that just opened up a plethora of so many more questions. Like, where'd the light come from? Why was it there? Where'd it go when they woke up? What did it do to them?

He stopped immediately when he thought he heard something, holding Gabe back by not letting go of his hand. "Wait, what, did you say something?" Marko frowned and made a face. It didn't really sound like Gabe said anything, but he swore he heard something. It was like a voice, but they were the only ones around. Well, he hoped so anyway. He assumed if there were any others around, he would hear them going around the cave. That was a creepy thought. "...Nevermind, sorry."

He let them continue walking towards the entrance, phones out in their free hands. It was dark as Hell in the cave. It wasn't even like it was a normal darkness--more like a complete absence of light. Ugh, he was overthinking things again. Fortunately, when they got out of the cave, everything seemed to get a hundred times better. He breathed in the fresh air and looked up at the stars in the sky and sighed in relief, letting go of Gabe's hand. "I'm so mad at you." He wasn't really. He just wanted to emphasize it for the sake of being whiny. Turning to face him, Marko tilted Gabe's head back and fourth before standing back and humming. "You don't look like you got yourself hurt. I wonder what even happened back there."

It felt like the cave went on forever. Gabriel certainly didn't remember walking so far on their way inside. It was like they were running the friggin marathon. Okay, that was an exaggeration. "Hey, Gabe? Do you...remember a light?" Well, the thing he remembered most was the light. That light was beautiful... Where did it even go? That's weird.

His thoughts were interrupted when he was yanked back. He turned around and Marko had just... Stopped. "Wait, what, did you say something?" Gabe stared at him and muttered a negative answer, his head tilting to the left in confusion. Well, he was pretty sure he hadn't said anything. "...Nevermind, sorry."

They walked for a while more, Gabe silently wishing he had a jetpack or some sort of flying device. That would be really cool. He could land on top of buildings and watch the sunset over the horizon. Gabriel was so busy thinking about this that he didn't realise they were outside until Marko spoke. "I'm so mad at you."

"I know, I know." Marko turned towards him and turned his head weirdly, making Gabe frown. Every part of himself felt sensitive. The wind seems louder that usual too.

Marko hummed. "You don't look like you got yourself hurt. I wonder what even happened back there."

"Erm, we... Came close to the secret hideout of our unknown enemy but we fell for one of the traps, which knocked us out while he ran and his on the opposite side of time." Gabriel got gradually excited with this, something feeling odd oh his head. He presumed it was a bump. "Alright, going home. We live in the same-ish direction, don't we?" Gabe stared at Marko blankly for a few seconds, before smiling brightly.

"Erm, we... Came close to the secret hideout of our unknown enemy but we fell for one of the traps, which knocked us out while he ran and his on the opposite side of time." No, no, absolutely not. Marko refused to let Gabriel go on another one of his delusional little tangents again to wave this entire situation off like it was supposed to be normal. These things didn't happen to normal teenagers. Normal teenagers hung out at the mall, not in caves, and they talked about shopping and their significant others, not about fictional superhero crap. And he was definitely not going to let the false excuse get him kinda-sorta in a better mood. Screw. Tha--wait. What? What was that? "Alright, going home. We live in the same-ish direction, don't we?"

Marko blinked once, twice, and then tried to rub the sleep and the stars out of his eyes. When he opened them, they were still there, so he stopped blinking and started staring, staring just above Gabe's head, where something was that something should not be. He tried to process it in his mind for a few good seconds. Whatever Gabe was saying to him never quite reached his ears because he was much more focused on the other object in front of him, which, well, was Gabe, but shouldn't be, couldn't possibly be Gabe.

This was ridiculous. "I think I have a concussion." Yes, definitely, that had to be it. Or maybe he was still passed out and he was only dreaming that he and Gabe were out of the cave back into the world of safety. He couldn't believe what he was seeing. "I did, I did, there has to be something wrong with me." He felt almost nauseas about it, but he somehow managed to keep his composure. Whenever he spoke aloud, he wasn't sure if he was talking directly to Gabe or if he was simply talking for the sake of it to help clear his thoughts. Either way, it wasn't working. Reaching up without permission, Marko carefully grabbed the objects--the furry, ridiculous, animalistic ears--connected to Gabe's head to inspect them better. The second he touched them and felt the warmth coming from them, he snatched his hands back and took a step away quick enough to lose his balance and fall to the hard ground in surprise. "What happened to you!?"

Marko had gone completely silent and Gabriel was beginning to get worried at how he was staring over his head and not straight at him. The blond was just staring, making no motions to move or get home. "I think I have a concussion." Gabriel blinked at Marko's words. Had he hit his head when he'd fallen? Oh man, that would suck! He wouldn't be able to explain one more mishap to Marko's dad without mentioning superheroes, especially if Marko had a concussion or something! God, he'd be doomed. He'd be so gone; his own parents would murder him. And most of all, he would have gotten Marko hurt, even though it were he who convinced Marko to go into the cave with him. Gabe was about to feel Marko's head for bumps or something.

Marko's hands got to his own head first and he felt Marko touch something. The sensitivity made him flinch and he whimpered slightly. Marko snatched his hands back and stumbled backwards as Gabe stared into nothingness in surprise. Slowly, he reached his own hands up and felt what was on his head. As soon as he touched them, he yelped and retracted his hands quickly as his ears stood up in surprise.

"What happened to you!?" Marko's voice was louder in his ears than usual and his tail swayed in annoyance- wait, tail?! Gabriel reached back and touched the big, fluffy wolf tail, his eyes widening in surprise. Gabe reached down and grabbed Marko's arm, pulling him up quickly but he didn't let go when Marko was standing. He was looking at Marko with a panicked look in his eyes.

"Marko..." He started, his voice gaining that shaky edge again. "Marko, what's happening?!" He flailed his arms and his tail was swaying slightly with himself. He whimpered again. "What the heck?! Marko, what happened to me in that cave? What happened to us? What if something like this has happened to you?" He passed one of his hands through Marko's hair: nothing. Gabe was gripping Marko's arm tightly now, breathing heavily before his eyes finally lit up with their usual excitement ten fold.

"Marko." He said, his voice a hushed stage whisper. "Marko, this is a miracle! Did I not say this would be THE day? The prophesied day, oh god, that cave! They didn't abandon it because it was weird. They abandoned it because people were getting strange mutations!" Gabriel's eyes had a certain spark to them now and his thoughts were racing around in incomprehensible circles, his tail wagging side to side excitedly. "I mean, this isn't exactly the type of power I'd ever thought of but-" Gabe got instantly distracted, turning his head at the sound of something moving. It was just a rat, but it was ages away.

So he got animal hearing as well as the ears and tail! Sweet! But how would he explain this to his parents? That... Would be simple! He could just explain that he gained a new love for cosplaying in public for no reason and not to save the public. Yes, that was a good idea. A terribly good idea. God, he was good. "This could cause some difficulties though..." He said, unconsciously still latched on to Marko. "Are you sure you're okay then Marko?" he said finally, worried as he turned his head towards the boy. "Not hurt?" He squeezed his arm reassuringly. "Let's get home."

Marko's panic only rose when sudden shock ran over Gabe's face. "Marko... Marko, what's happening?!" There was a tail, too?? He was going to pass out and this wasn't even happening to him! Was Gabe slowly turning into some sort of animal? Was this like that issue of the Wolfman where he got himself infused with some sort of long, lost, magical wolf DNA and ended up a normal, business man by day and crazed Wolfman by night!? Oh god, it was night right now! "What the heck?! Marko, what happened to me in that cave? What happened to us? What if something like this has happened to you?" Marko used his free hand to check himself, but couldn't feel any ears on his head or any tail swishing behind him. He didn't think he changed like this.

"Marko. Marko, this is a miracle! Did I not say this would be THE day? The prophesied day, oh god, that cave! They didn't abandon it because it was weird. They abandoned it because people were getting strange mutations!" Oh no. Oh no, no, no, no, no. This was not to be treated as a good thing. This was a bad thing and it needed to be fixed. "I mean, this isn't exactly the type of power I'd ever thought of but-" Okay, Marko, calm down, relax, just... Ugh. I can't concentrate. There's too much going on. "Are you sure you're okay then Marko? Not hurt? Let's get home."

This was ridiculous. This was the worst case scenario. Wait, well, no, not really, because in the worst case scenario Gabe would be dead and he would have to live his whole life with that. But Gabe was alive and despite being not exactly right, he seemed to be alright overall, mentally and physically and emotionally, so that was good. "Yeah, I'm fine, just, stop thinking so much, my head hurts." He winced. No, he didn't care about some rat forever away. He wanted to leave before someone saw them out over here and before his dad yelled at him even more.

He shot a tired look over at Gabe, still not used to the ears. He doubted he ever would be. This was just too much to properly take in. "You can hear things better?" He was sure he heard Gabe say something like that out loud. It was hard to sort out with all the other sounds going through his head, but he was sure that was one of the things. Maybe this was what happened to him. Maybe he was doomed to hear this stupid nonsense noise in his head for the rest of his life while Gabe got gifted with fluffy ears and a tail and the instincts of an animal. As they started walking back, Marko spoke again. "Do you feel any differently? Like, can you feel your ears and the...the tail?" He hummed and stopped for a moment, glad that there was nobody out on the streets this late at night, and grabbed Gabe's tail. "Can you feel that?"

Gabriel walked along happily. He knew he was just"Yeah, I'm fine, just, stop thinking so much, my head hurts." Gabe was confused at this point. Stop... Thinking so much? Well, he guessed Marko meant it in a 'you're overthinking' way, of course. It had to be that. "You can hear things better?"

"Yeah I can- I... Marko?" Gabe stared at his friend as they walked, questioning the two of them. Marko seemed to be thinking of something else. He wasn't sure he'd actually spoken those words out loud, but that did happen a lot and it turns out he's said something stupid or depressing and people are just staring. Yes, that's probably what happened. That was definitely what happened. What if something had happened to Marko too?

Oh god, he didn't mind if something had happened to him, like this whole animal thing he was genuinely worried about (and would probably freak out over later)- he didn't mind at all! But what if he dragged Marko into a situation he didn't want to be in and then ruined his life somehow?! What would be do then? Marko was one of his closest friends- no, his closest friend and he couldn't lose that friendship. No way. No way in hell. But how would he explain to Marko's dad? "Yeah, sorry, I've kinda given your kid a genetic mutation because I thought a cave would be the best place to visit and then I got us in big trouble! Whoopsiedoo!"

Once again, he hardly heard Marko speaking, mostly because he was shaking as he walked, he tried to tune in. "...ike, can you feel your ears and the...the tail?" Gabe stopped to think, but before he could say anything, Marko had grabbed his tail. The redhead's eyes went wide and he flinches visibly. "Can you feel that?"

Blushing a bright red, Gabe tried to pull his tail away but he didn't have proper control over his animal parts yet. "N-n-Well, Y-yes, but don't touch there!" Gabriel shifted, Marko's hand still on his tail and he looked away, swaying awkwardly. "D-don't touch the tail, okay? N-no more touching the tail. For, um, reasons." Gabe felt awkward, like a jolt had gone through his body when Marko touched his tail, starting with that area. He turned his eyes to meet Marko's, but turned away pretty soon.

God, what had just happened? And what was so... Embarrassing? He felt awkwardness and shakiness in his knees as he looked at Marko, his lips pursed shut.

There was an instant reaction to it that Marko noticed the same time Gabe did. "N-n-Well, Y-yes, but don't touch there!" If he could make question marks appear over his head in real life instead of just online, that's what he would be doing right now. He didn't understand the reaction. Did it hurt? He hoped he didn't hurt him. "D-don't touch the tail, okay? N-no more touching the tail. For, um, reasons." He released the tail when he realized it was bringing Gabe so much discomfort. He didn't think it was giving him any pain, but regardless, he wasn't going to keep doing it.

They were left in an almost awkward silence after that as neither of them seemed to be able to figure out anything to say. A couple words suddenly passed through Marko's head and he shot Gabriel a look of confusion and concern. "Was that really embarrassing? Sorry, I didn't mean to, y'know, do anything." He still wasn't sure what it was that he even did, but there was a lot of stuff going on all of a sudden that he didn't exactly understand. It was scary, honestly. In the comics, if a character suddenly had animal ears and a tail, they were considered ten times cuter which, he had to admit, he could definitely see, but above that it was just weird.

Okay, take some breaths, relax, stop freaking out. It was just hard! This wasn't supposed to happen in real life! And certainly not to him! Well, technically not to him, specifically, but he was involved in all this. Gabe might be over there thinking it's all super great and fantastic and all, but Marko certainly didn't. He was scared. How was Gabe supposed to live his life like that? He couldn't go around pretending those things were fake forever! He would be a walking, talking freakshow! People would want to take him in, do experiments, figure out this brand new species of an animal-human hybrid! He'd be on the news! Television! That's only if he wasn't dissected for science by the government first!

Oh, god, he was going to pass out. Wait, wait, what was that? Marko frowned and focused back on Gabe. He was sure he heard him say something that time, but he didn't understand why Gabe would admit to being so worried about all of this out loud when he seemed to be so excited about it just a few minutes ago. "Gabe, are you really okay?" Now he was extra worried. He didn't know how they were supposed to deal with this. "We can't just go home with you looking like this. Your parents would freak! This is such a bad situation." He groaned, ready to sit down and pull out his hair. "What are we supposed to do with you?"

Gabriel shifted in the silence, fiddling with his thumbs as the electricity from Marko touching his tail finally fizzled out. "Was that really embarrassing? Sorry, I didn't mean to, y'know, do anything."

"It wasn't embarrassing. Just... shocking and weird." Gabe lied. It was crazily embarrassing, he just couldn't think of why it was.

God, Marko looked like he was thinking about something horrifying. He'd gone a pale colour and looked nauseous, like he was going to collapse right there and then

"Gabe, are you really okay?" Gabe nodded, a big grin on his face. Surely he could keep this up until he got back? Marko couldn't know how much he was worrying; he'd already caused him a tornado of trouble that day. "We can't just go home with you looking like this. Your parents would freak! This is such a bad situation." Oh god, oh god oh god, he needed to stop this conversation right now before he- "What are we supposed to do with you?"

Gabe screamed suddenly, his hands tugging on his hair. "I don't know!" He yelled, his arms doing quick motions around himself as his tail drooped along with his ears. "I can't-" Gabe stopped to breathe, to try and stop hyperventilating. "I can't just leave my parents! They raised me, and I'm their only son and I can't be alon- I don't know what to do!" The redhead stopped pacing around, something he only just realised what he was doing and he just stared at Marko. Hope, trust, that was what sparked in his eyes. But Gabriel didn't say anything more. He just sat on the floor, his head hidden by his knees and hair for a while, before he looked up at the blonde again, his eyes still.

"Marko..." He whispered. Should he ask for help? Should he stay silent? Marko seemed to have a knack about what was going on in his head that night. "Tell me what to do." His voice was barely audible, but then he had a thought. Marko had... said a lot of things which were... off. Like, things he was sure he hadn't said out loud. Could it be... Marko, can you hear me? He might as well try. It was worth a shot.
