Summary


The King of Dreams... has fallen.

In a final act to preserve the sanctity of dreams, the King scatters his Virtues to the cosmos, to seek special hearts capable of carrying on his legacy. To ensure the Virtues' delivery, he appoints his most trusted servant – Bubbles – before his spirit is placed into a safe haven: the reflection of miracles, the Flash Mirror.

In the wake of the endeavor, tyrants who prey upon dreams – Nightmare Nation Eternal – came out of hiding. Their target: Earth; Codename: "The Garden of Dreams".

Coincidentally, the Virtues' path leads Bubbles to that very same planet, where she meets an avid and passionate emcee named Aelita Bell. Surprisingly enough, this chance meeting will lead to something absolutely... stellar!

1st Album, Intro: Long Live the King!

His love is eternal. His happiness...doomed.

.

Neverland, the Kingdom of Dreams...

...

Since the dawn of life, since the very first dream was made in the hearts of man, they watched over us – the people of Neverland.

Adoring hearts of gold, given bone and flesh.

They were a very special breed of human, those born with a heaven-sent gift: the celestial essence, Stella. A power that gave them the ability to not only protect dreams, but also eternal life.

Their words were silent, but their smiles – they spoke volumes of untold courage and compassion. Sadly, in the end, they were not allowed to remain outside the Kingdom for long. For, if they did...

...they would slowly fade away...

...

An unfortunate setback, especially for those who loved mankind more than anything else in the universe. They loved – and still love the planet Earth, which they refer to as "the Garden of Dreams". For, on this said planet in the Milky Way Galaxy existed many dreamers, all with beautiful dreams... Unfortunately, in the shadows existed those who preyed upon the dreams of mankind...

...

They call themselves "Nightmare Nation Eternal".

Humans who overindulged in a path astray from the Neverlanders'; they wanted to turn the dreams of all into nightmares. Their motives, unfortunately, were always shrouded in mystery.

The Neverlanders' knowledge of Eternal was meager at best. However, what they gathered is this:

Eternal is ruled by a man known by the acronym "D.S.", and the said man led his people in the fashion of a conglomerate. A corporate business, whose sole purpose for existence was – and still is the eternal silencing of dreams... The immortality of chaos and despair.

...

However, amidst the never-ending struggle, a hero was born...

...

The seventh king of Neverland, Eon.

...

Donning robes of immeasurable grandeur, bestowed upon him by the Universal Lord, Eon engaged Eternal for most of his life. Locked in battle daily, almost constantly, neither side refusing to concede. Until the day finally came, when Eon awakened his latent power...

...

"Cosmic Flash, Apprivoiser!" he summoned the power of the universe, and realized his true potential. "l'Avent – Emperor Flash!"

...

Bred from the unification of the seven Celestial Virtues, King Eon's new power laid Eternal's ambitions to waste. Drove them from the realms of light and life, and forced them into the darkness... forever.

Subsequently, a time of peace came.

And, amidst the calm, the King... found love...

...

Her name was Luna; a maiden of the Garden of Dreams.

...

This love, however, was ill-fated.

Eon knew the dangers of remaining in the Garden of Dreams... And so, he would leave as quickly as he came.

Innocent for her age, Luna never quite understood the King's behavior – why he would leave so suddenly. When she was sleeping, when her back was turned, when she least expected him to... Eon would disappear, in a flash of sliver light.

Fortunately, one day, the disappearing acts came to an end... when he asked her hand in marriage...

...

She accepted, wanting nothing more than to be with her beloved king. Hence the donning of the Neverland Royal Family, who governed the Kingdom of Dreams with a warm and loving hand.

With the King and his beloved Queen on the throne, the Kingdom and the Garden saw an age of peace and progression.

...

In this time, Luna bore triplets – two boys and a girl.

Leon, their first born son.

Fiona, their middle child and only daughter.

And their second born son and youngest child, Uriah.

All beautiful children, each possessing a special gift in the ways of Stella – gifts that held promise for both the Kingdom and the Garden of Dreams. The triplets' time with their father, however, was short in measure... For they were born in the twilight of solace...

...

In a final act of retaliation, Eternal rose from the shadows, and engaged the Kingdom of Dreams without warning. The impromptu invasion took the King's forces by surprise, and they had no other choice but to engage the enemy unprepared... They fell shortly thereafter.

...

And without his celestial robes and full strength, the King was left vulnerable... to the enemy's attack.

...

"Aah!" a director of Eternal imbued his spirit with nightmares.

...

"How does it feel?" the director hissed. "Tell me, Your Majesty – What does it feel like to be... immersed in despair?"

"Curse... you..." the King coughed.

"Curse me? Curse me...? You banished us to the shadows – that's cursing enough for us! But unfortunately for you, Eon..."

The King shot the director a fierce glare. "...While you were cavorting around with that simple Garden wench", hissed the assailant. "We, Nightmare Nation Eternal, were plotting our revenge. You were so in love that you, a man who calls himself 'King', forgot your mission. You forgot who and what you are... A Stellar warrior!"

...

The director was right, and Eon recognized his error.

...

Amidst the King's contemplation, the direction fled – breezed away as a breath of dark energy. Eon lifted his head, surprised by the director's cowardice... He moved, despite his wounds... moved to find his family, all the while praying for their safety.

"Must", he coughed. "Must... find... my family..."

...

Unfortunately, he arrived too late...

...

"Aah!" he heard his wife scream.

...

His heart flushed an ocean of fear, "Luna? Luna...!"

Eon stumbled his way to the master bedroom, where the scream reverberated... And when he arrived...

The King's eyes watered with grief and sorrow, "Luna... no..."

...

Luna... was consumed by nightmares, and his children... gone...

...

The King stumbled to his wife's body, and held her in his arms. "Luna... and..." he looked around, and called for his children. "Leon! Fiona! Uriah! Where are y—"

"They're with us now", interrupted a woman, who stood in the shadows of the master bedroom.

Eon looked over his shoulder, and saw another director of Eternal step forward. "Poor, unfortunate King Eon", she snickered. "I humbly apologize for the unannounced visit, on behalf of my associates. But honestly, Your Majesty, did you think it would last forever?"

Eon bit his words with vague expression. "I didn't think so", the director turned her back to the King. "Your demise is your own doing, Eon. Or should I address you by your alias... Emperor Flash? Would that be more appropriate, given our hostile association?"

"Eternal", the King snarled. "This is not the end..."

"Oh? 'Not the end', you say? ...Seems to me like you're more than 'finished', wouldn't you agree?"

"No!" the King denied. "I... will not let this end. Not like this. Not now... and so... and... so..."

...

The King vaulted over, in a loss of strength...

...

"How pathetic", the director laughed. "You can barely stand, Eon. Yet you preach on about 'not letting this end', as if you can actually do anything to stop us... Rubbish! As if you could EVER do anything... by yourself. One man alone cannot overthrow an entire nation, you fool!"

The King opened his eyes, at a realization.

"You will fade here", the director stepped forward into the darkness. "You don't have a choice... Farewell, foolish King of Dreams."

The director's laughter mocked him, as it reverbed into nothingness... And, with the silencing of her laughter, the King was left all alone – with the sleeping body of his beloved Queen.

...

He held Luna in his arms, and cried.

...

"I have only one option – and for that I need", he lifted his head and cried out. "Bubbles! Bubbles, are you there?"

...

The sound of an ape's chattering came from the hallway. "Bubbles, in here!" the King called. "Hurry, please!"

"I'm coming, Your Majesty-ookey!" replied a small voice.

...

Within seconds, an apelike fairy of dreams entered the master bedroom, skipping across the floor on her fists, "Your Majesty, the Kingdom is in big trouble-ookey! Are you alright-ookey?"

"Bubbles... thank god", the fairy clung to her King.

She then noticed the Queen. "Oh no-ookey..." the fairy wept. "Queen Luna... my friend-ookey. Say it isn't so, Your Majesty? She's not – she's not gone... no-ookey..."

"Bubbles... it's all my fault", the King realized.

"No, Your Majesty..."

"Yes, Bubbles. Luna... was never meant to be here. But I was young and careless, not realizing what bringing her here would lead to... She is in a deep sleep, locked away in a realm of nightmares. And our children... were kidnapped by the enemy – Eternal took them, Bubbles!"

The fairy froze with fright, "No way-ookey!"

"Bubbles... my physical form is quickly fading. And before it does leave, I must... I must do 'it'. The ritual..."

"You mean..." Bubbles gasped.

"...The Dance of Charity", the King lowered his head. "By means of this dance, I will be able to send the seven Virtues to those capable of wielding their power. And, the celestial emissaries, spoken of by my forefathers... will be born with time."

Bubbles looked up into the warm oceans of her King's eyes, and saw tears developing. "Bubbles", the King smiled. "I want you to watch over them – show them the way... And I will be there with you."

Bubbles smiled amidst her tears. "Your mirror", the King remembered. "It can contain me, can it not?"

"Yes", the fairy bounced. "The Flash Mirror will keep you safe, Your Majesty – safe from fading away-ookey. But we must hurry..."

Bubbles noticed her King's fading physical state, "You're venting pretty fast... Your body won't last much longer-ookey!"

The King rose to his feet, amidst his wounds, "And so it must be done here. Bubbles... wish me luck."

"Do your very best-ookey!" cheered the fairy.

...

The King laid his wife's body on their bed, and wished his farewells to her in silence, "Luna... this is for you. And for our children. One last solo – and then we must part ways... for now..."

...

Eon approached the center of his bedroom...

...

When he came to a halt, Eon lifted his head – and a light shined from his frame. "Showtime!" he called, as a circle of stars spread from his feet. "Dance of Charity, Exécuter!"

His venting body became whole, with a flash of cosmic energy... And then, he danced. The King danced more vibrantly, more beautifully than he ever had before. Eon's movements were magic alone.

Bubbles could only look on, in tearful awe, "Ookey..."

"Bubbles", the King called amidst his dancing.

"Y-yes-ookey?"

"Ready the Flash Mirror. This must be done with precise timing. Hurry, my dearest friend, before it's too late."

Bubbles became determined and nodded, "Okay-ookey!"

She then lifted her hands to the sky, and called fervently, "Mirror, oh mirror – come forth-ookey!"

...

Her words summoned a flash of golden light from the sky, which volleyed towards the earth like a shooting star.

...

The light zoomed through the window of the master bedroom, and stopped behind the dancing King, where it then took form... A golden hand mirror, with a diamonded bow just above the grip.

Bubbles held her hands toward the Mirror and the King. "Convey your miracles and show the way-ookey!" she commanded.

As the King ended his dance, seven lights of a different color emerged from his heart... And immediately, the King's venting body became one with the Flash Mirror...

...

The seven lights, the Virtues mentioned by the King, found their way through the window... and into the stars above...

...

The Flash Mirror travelled the air, and found its way into the fairy's hands. "We must move", the King's image appeared in the Mirror. "Hurry, before the Kingdom is fully consumed!"

Bubbles nodded, "Okay-ookey."

Bubbles concentrated her Stellar energy, and her body took flight through her King's window, and into the skies above...

...

Bubbles looked back at the Kingdom, and wept as it was consumed by the Nightmares. "Queen Luna", she cried. "We will come back – we will come back and avenge you all-ookey...!"

...

The sky opened, and the gateway to the Garden of Dreams was accessed. A portal of the purest golden light... more beautiful, more vibrant than an early morning sun.

"Luna", the King wept. "My children, everyone... I'm sorry..."

...

Neverland was ruined, consumed by the nightmares... completely. Only darkness and despair could exist in this world, void of light and life... The Neverlanders could only hope and pray – believe that something would be done, and soon, before the dreams of all suffered the same fate.

The celestial emissaries of legend had to be awakened. The King could no longer fight, he could no longer protect what was precious to him... And so, in silence, he prayed...

...

"Universal Lord", he implored with resolve. "They must be found. Help us seek them with haste... the new Stellar warriors."

...

The gateway was closed... and the adventure began.
