Chapter IX

Core War

Keiichi was at his desktop reviewing the layout of the new bike. The latest client at Whirlwind had been particularly demanding and he really loved it. His requirements had demanded a greater commitment than other projects to get the perfect balance between power, weight and mass distribution. The placing of the engine in this bike had been especially critical. By increasing so dramatically the engine power, and placing it on a conventional chassis, the entire balance of the motorcycle had been altered, a rearrangement of the other components was inevitable, but complicated because the lack of space. Besides other requirement was it had to be to very maneuverable, so the center of gravity should be as low as possible.

And yet, he resolved the problem quickly, with the experience obtained at Whirlwind he had learned to visualize the problems and developed a great intuition as an engineer. Chihiro, the founder of the motor club, had long recognized his innate talent and expected him to be able to exceed hers. She had acquired a reputation as a designer of racing motor bikes and could recognize talent when she met it. Keiichi had a passion for create, together with a love for these machines. He just needed experience, and was gaining it quickly. Someday he would have his own fame as a designer.

But he was not thinking about fame. He just enjoyed the creative process. At this point all he wanted, was to feel the balance of components, build them, and finally see his creation in action. Now he just needed one last security review. Check that fuel lines and electricity were not close to the hot parts, check the braking system, and prevent what would happen if any part failed.

Finally he was satisfied with his examination. He straightened and stretched, enjoying the feeling of a job well done. Still he needed to build it, but had already had reviewed the process. He looked at his watch and realized he was over in half the time he had estimated. That meant he had still several hours off. Belldandy was out. Urd appeared to be sleeping and Skuld had gone along Sentarō-kun to buy ice cream. What would he do?

He saw the computer and thought he could browse the Internet for a while. A friend had provided him with a couple of promising Internet addresses. Because he now had an Internet connection he had disposed his "special" magazines he used to keep hidden in his desk drawer. He always had feared Belldandy would discover them, while he was sure she would had not object, still he was not comfortable that Belldandy would see them.

He turned on the computer, and waited while the operating system finished loading. But when the computer displayed the desktop screen he cried out indignantly.

- Urd!

There, on the monitor as wallpaper, was a very suggestive image of Urd with a teasing and sensuous pose wearing nothing, except two strategically placed signs that just said: "Goddess power."

So again Urd had been using the machine! She did not miss a single opportunity to boost his libido, as part of a constant pressure to get him closer to Belldandy.

But the game sometimes had gone too far. Keiichi really had no problem with his libido and there was no need to stimulate it more. So he immediately proceeded to replace the wallpaper with a more innocent picture of Belldandy.

Notes:

Core War. Sometimes called, the most inhuman of games. It was very popular among the 80,s after its publication in the journal "Scientific American". In this game, two programs are placed at the core of computer memory in order to try to destroy each other. The concept of this game is where the idea of computer viruses evolved, in addition to the concept of the movie "Tron". The name core refers to the obsolete technology of magnetic cores, used in that ancient age, for data storage.

Chapter X

Tears from Hild

It was dusk in the department of Dr. Shugahara, but he was oblivious to the passage of time. He wore some advanced 3D active glasses that allowed viewing of stereographic in his computer screen. In front of him he could see, like floating in mid-air, a number of complex symbols that changed drastically with just adjusting a few parameters. He examined them with attention, and tried several combinations in order to found the best way to recover the information.

Those symbols were the runes of the manuscript of Urth. He had finally discovered the secret to extract the hidden information. It had been so easy and yet it would have been incomprehensible to anyone before the twentieth century. The runes written on paper were just two-dimensional representation of a language written in multiple dimensions. Just as the drawing of a cube is two-dimensional representation of an object in three. Those runes were representing symbols possibly from a 10 dimensional frame. And there was something marvelous, it really was possible to extract the information from the other dimensions, using relatively simple processing algorithms, and now he had gained access to the hidden information. He could extract the information they contained.

He looked at the pages of the manuscript given to him by the Professor Danielsen and smiled. True, it had instruction to translate the runes, but only in the most basic level, the level where they were the potions, the procedures and the ingredients, and while there were some marvelous formulas there, he found they were only the tip of something much richer.

Unfortunately, the author of the notes had no idea of the complexity of what he saw; even the most advanced mathematics of his time would have been useless. The concept of hyper-geometry would take still centuries to be developed.

But those notes had aroused his curiosity. He had hoped that the team of Professor Danielsen would decipher it and therefore had made no previous attempt, but now without him, he had decided to take the case personally.

Possibly a few months ago would not be able to do it, but after discovering the multidimensional properties of the extract of the Urd´s flower, he had been toying with the concepts of higher dimensions. This writing was a much richer and complex than any human system. If indeed Urd was a goddess, she belonged to a world of hyper geometry, and her writing had to be the same.

But now had several dilemmas to resolve. He had expected to found preparations, recipes, some legends and songs, and that's what was on the first level of the runes, but in the hidden levels there were much more. He had only translated some fragments, yet he had never expected something like what he had found. There were references and strange tales of a world called "Hell" and governed by Nidhogg and another which could be translated as Heaven, governed by Yggdrasil, but this was not described as the universal tree of Norse mythology he knew, but seemed to refer to something quite inconceivable for the time. Yggdrasil and Nidhogg were described as supercomputers.

Chapter XI

Heaven and Hell

The sound of thunder echoed through the small valley, if such name could be applied to this strange and wild landscape that looked more like a open scar in the middle of the forest, than a natural formation. The hard rock was exposed and almost no vegetation grew thereby increasing the contrast with the nearby forest. The sound bounced back and forth between the bare walls giving it an unreal sound.

On one of the valley walls, at the sound of a thunder, the rock disintegrated, leaving a crater, another series of explosions followed, each one left a new crater similar to the previous.

But those scars on the wall, were not the only ones. Along the wall, one could be seen hundreds of similar craters, some seemed to be very old, the oldest were much smaller than recent ones.

As the smoke and dust from the explosion began to dissipate, a female figure could be seen floating a few feet off the ground.

The beautiful woman with long white hair closed her fists in anger as he examined her work with a critical eye, then uttered a curse in a incomprehensible language, apparently she was dissatisfied. She lifted her arms and whispered a long spell as she moved her hands as if dancing, and they glowed with electric lights from small flashes that run along her fingers . A smell of ozone filled the environment, there was a powerful flash much more intense than the others and soon a new crater ornamented the wall. This was considerably bigger than the previous one.

Urd finally breathed a little relieved. This always had served her to release her frustration and the rugged landscape was a silent witness of how many times it had been necessary to do so along her life.

This place was one of the few wild places still left in this perfect world and maybe that's why she liked it. Surely Heaven was a beautiful place full of order and harmony, but in search of that order, the gods had subjugated the nature of this realm and, at least at the eyes of Urd who was born in a landscape completely different, everything looked like a giant artificial and monotonous garden.

Urd's heart rebelled against an order so perfect that it seemed to rub into tyranny. She imagined that if possible the current Kamisama, the title received by the ruler god of this universe, would have given certainty to the uncertainty principle, and would have tried to remove the chaos part from the chaos theory.

As the tension is released, she could not avoid bursting into laughter at these thoughts. It was not the best way to think about the "number one". Her ideas were almost heretical in a world obsessed with perfection and order.

Maybe she was not alone in thinking so, but if she was one of the few who openly expressed her rebelliousness. For some reason she was tolerated with those attitudes. It really a gentle tyranny, yet accepted only a few disagreements. More than once she had confronted directly to rules that she considered ridiculous.

The order of the Mortal Knights

By Javier Delgado

Fan fiction, inspired by "Oh My Goddess" by Kosuke Fujishima.

Chapter XII

Valkyrie

Silhouetted against the light of the entry was the unmistakable silhouette of Lind and her battle-ax suggest it was not a social call. The back light created a long shadow casted on the floor, so she seemed larger and even more dramatic. The pose of the goddess might seem a bit theatrical, but the most powerful of the Valkyries did not need such tricks.

Urd recalled that once, many years ago, she had terrified by such vision. After all, even the daughter of the great Daimakaichō, could also be just a scared little girl trying to prove otherwise, while she was surrounded by their sworn enemies.

In Hell there were many disturbing legends about these powerful goddesses. Hild had said that Heaven would protect her with all their might. And she had been proved right. After she had arrived to Heaven, she had found herself surrounded by strangers and then, with and equally dramatic entry she had appeared there, as her appointed guardian. Lind name was well known in Hell. The most powerful of the Valkyries, whose name filled with horror to some. Eventually she learned that some of those legends were mere fantasies, but others were not.

How could she ever have imagined that one day that would be a reassuring sight. After their past experiences, Urd knew she was a goddess she could trust, even when she was not supposed to be there.

- Lind. What are you doing here?

- Lind. What are you doing here?

In an elegant move that was not intended to be, Lind dissolved her battle-ax in the air, then, ignoring the question, she walked in, looking curiously around the hidden room. Like all goddesses she was eternally young, but her attitude and demeanor left no doubt of her position and age. Then greeted Urd with a smile that could not fail to show certain condescension to her former protégé.

- So here is where you hid your belongings.

Urd was surprised by the assertion, she was sure that this was a secret between two sisters.

- Hide them? So you know about them?

- Urd, Daughter of Hild. Do you think we would not supervise everything that came from the world we consider our greatest enemy?

Chapter XIII

The Search

Still was night but a faint glow in the sky announced dawn would arrive soon. A man moved along a path in woods, lit by the uncertain light of a flashlight. The path was steep, because instead of following the main road, the man cut directly through a path in the forest towards the top of the hill. He moved without hesitation, it was not the first time he rove this way, this was a ritual he repeated frequently. Finally reached the top, where there was a small pre-Hispanic pyramid in ruins. He looked with some distaste at the place because he knew most of the damage was not because of the ravages of time, but by tourist. Finally, with a fatalist sigh, he shrugged and climbed to the top of the pyramid. In a few minutes sunrise would arrive, and at the edge of the mountain range surrounding the valley he saw a faint red glow, as if the mountains top were on fire. He breathed deeply to fill his lungs with the cold and refreshing morning air, then closed his eyes for a few seconds, to set free his imagination, and then slowly looked around.

It was a fantastic and beautiful view. The mountain stood lonely amid a sea of light. At the North, the "sea" expanded beyond the horizon and at the south it was interrupted by the mountains, where it looked as is if it were trying to invade them. This mountain, in fact an extinct volcano a few thousand years old, was like a lonely island. He tried to imagine how it must have been in the past, when this was a real island amid an ancient lake. A beautiful and ancient lake, full of life, with migratory birds, fisheries, and surrounded by a fertile land, where the industrious inhabitants of the place managed to get several harvests a year. This large lake lay like an inland sea, filling this vast valley surrounded by mountains and extinct volcanoes. To the north in the middle of the lake, there was the great artificial island where the Great Tenochtitlan, one of the largest cities of its time, had been built.

But this beautiful lake had gone, and knew that within minutes that beautiful sea of lights would disappear when the sun would reveal instead the sea of concrete and asphalt of modern Mexico City. The man was on top of Citlaltepetl, which in Nahuatl mean "Mountain of the Star", an ancient sacred place of the Nahua people. Slowly the flashes of the sun began to appear along the edge of the mountain range. Soon the wind would bring the smell of petrol, diesel and the noise of the awakening city. But he wanted to continue imagining that his mountain was a still an isolated island. All this helped him forget his problems; he would soon have decisions to make.

The order of the Mortal Knights

By Javier Delgado

Fan fiction, inspired by "Oh My Goddess" by Kosuke Fujishima.

Chapter XIV

The battle of the Tarikihongan temple

Segi mjök Sundrbornar Norns ek vera, Thaer ætt Eiguer saman-t;

eru áskunngar add, add alfkunngar, Thad Meyjes koma

Theimer RÓ vitandi marg þrjár sae, und er þolli stendr;

Urd Hétu eina, Adra Verdandi þriðju Skuld ina;

Thaer lög lögðu Thaer alda Bornum lif kuru, ørlög seggja

Those words echoed in Keiichi´s mind. The access to Yggdrasil had overwhelmed him with information but those simple verses recited by Urd in an ancient language were the key he had needed to understand. Thanks to his brain altered by the predictive defense program, he could understand clearly the word:

- Of many births the Norns must be, nor one in race they were;

some to gods, others to demons are kin.

Thence come the maidens mighty in wisdom,

three from the dwelling down 'neath the tree;

Urth is one named, Verthandi the next and Skuld the third.

On the Yggdrasil, three laws will make,

and life allotted to gods, men and demons.

Keiichi looked to the delicate girl whose head was leaning on his shoulder. Belldandy, a goddess among goddesses, procreated with the purpose of ruling the fate of the gods, and who would be the future Kami-sama. Her sister Urd, procreated to be the future Daimakaichō and rule over Hell, and finally Skuld, procreated so one day she would be the ruler of human destiny. They were the Norns, intended to be the most powerful beings in the multiverses.

The order of the Knights Mortal

By Javier Delgado R.

Fan fiction, inspired by "Oh My Goddess" by Kosuke Fujishima.

Chapter XV

Conflict in Hell

The stifling atmosphere was full of poisonous gases. Dark clouds partially hide a reddish sun. The heat was unbearable; the floor was cover by lava recently solidified. In some places, semi-liquid and incandescent material could be seen. A scorching wind blew causing violent eddies, yet they were not enough to clear the field of view. Suddenly it started raining, but it was not water, but tiny spheres of melted black glass. Mortals called them tears of Peele. This was a hellish place and there could be no life.

Suddenly a bright beam of light grow amid the clouds, it came from a crack in the fabric of space. The emanating energy cleared the clouds for a few seconds while the dimensional portal took shape. From inside, several figures appeared in combat uniform. They were Valkyries led by Lind. At the sight of this hell, they could not avoid a surprise exclamation. Lind was the first to speak.

- Are these the proper coordinates? This cannot be earth, it´s like our training headquarters.

- There is no possibility of error - Said one of them, she had a display floating in front of her and was checking the information, then slowly realizing the implications exclaimed - There is only one explanation, there was a huge combat here.

Lind rose in the air and tried to see at the distance but the cloud blocked their efforts, then gave an order

- Disperse and look for survivors. You two. Try to define the area of damage, we must contain and isolate the area, will be very difficult to hide this from mortal. We cannot allow further damage.

Another of the Valkyries, a young recruit named Chrono, exclaimed in a voice broken by the emotion:

- Looks like we are late, the destruction is total. There seems to be no survivors.

Lind looked at her with a gleam of anger in her eyes

- Do not waste time. Look for signs of life, fast!

The squad split, one of them cried in the distance:

- There is too much free magical energy in the environment; we cannot discern the signs of life.-

Another Valkyrie, which had risen into the air to assess the damage, descended to report.

- This area is contained by a magical shield. It is very powerful and complex. I do not think the damage has spread far.

Lind felt a temporary relief, at least the damage was contained and commented

- It must be the work of Belldandy, few gods would be able to something like that. We must find her!.

Chapter XVI

The Order

note: i have problems formating for the forum. If you have problems, try reading it at:

http://www.fanfictio..._Mortal_knights

The room was huge, slender columns whose geometries seemed impossible supported it; the ceiling seemed to be lost in the heights. The walls were decorated with illustrations done in soft colors, also there were delicate carvings made from materials like marble that gave the place an ethereal and graceful aspect. The light came through large windows with colorful glass that stained the interior with the soft colors of the rainbow. It looked like a Gothic cathedral built on dreams. The floor was decorated with intricate geometric shapes and lines that converged at the center in a design reminiscent of a mandala.

On the spacious room a gentle stream or air of went through indentation on the wall, producing soft musical tones, creating a soft symphony barely audible but able to induce relaxation. The place was designed to inspire peace, with geometric designs to help to focus the mind and achieve a state of meditation, but at this time, it was far from fulfilling its role.

In the center of the room was a solitary figure, in the midst of this immense place the figure should look tiny, but he had such a presence that seemed to fill the room.

In human terms it would have looked like a man of mature age, long brown hair tied in knots. His face was hard to describe. He had a soft glow that prevented to look at him directly. His clothing was simple, but intricate detail was engraved on it, also it was filled with ribbons, and tie knots. They were magical seals that helped him control his power. The large number of seals was a sign of his enormous power.

The man was looking at the beautiful and complex design of the floor immersed on his toughs. The intricate mandala had always had helped him to focus. That design had been perfected along millennium to be perfectly tuned to a complex mind. However, this time it did not bring peace.

Under normal circumstances, nothing could have distracted him from his meditation, but now he could clearly hear the rustling of clothes of approaching members of the general council. However, he did not turned around to see them. He still needed a little more time to think and chose to ignore them.

The newcomers were four gods. Their clothes and their seals denoted a high rank. Unlike Hell where the council was made up of hundreds of demons, the structure of this world was vertical. In these five beings resided most of the power of this universe.

There was no way of knowing their real age, but their clothes, ornaments and seals indicated high rank and power. One of them had a stern demeanor that suggested an older age.

However, despite their high-ranking, they did not dare to interrupt the man who was concentrated on the mandala and waited patiently until he noticed their presence.

Finally, the man closed his eyes and then opened slowly as if waking from a dream. The gods put a knee on the ground to show respect and waited in silence to speak.

The god made a slight and elegant hand gesture and suddenly he was surrounded by floating displays of complex information. He read them with a fast glance, looked to the gods and then spoke in a stern voice.

- The situation is serious, the truce between then universes seem to be broken. The Norns were attacked and at least two of them might not survive. Nevertheless, that is not the main problem. We have a deep problem here in the council. The fighter squadron that should have been there to help them when the alarms detected a large imbalance of power on earth was retained and even now, the requested healers had not been sent. Who is responsible?

Chapter XVII

A bruise with the beginning of space-time

From the grove surrounding the Toringinkan temple, everything seemed calm, Belldandy´s powerful magic had created a barrier that casted a perfect illusion, despite the destruction on the inside from the outside everything seemed perfectly normal.

Among the branches of a tree outside the temple, a curvaceous silhouette could be distinguished. Something in her attitude indicated considerable exasperation. This was one of Marler´s favorite places for surveillance and despite knowing the place perfectly; she had been deceived by the perfect illusion.

From this place she had been witness of the daily life inside the temple. How often she had not seen with envy the quiet routine of its residents. Remembering the annoying yet strong love between Keiichi and Belldandy made her memories of Anang-Reh bitterer. The constant quarrels between Skuld and Urd had made her laugh more than once, making her to remember her own childhood when she played with Urd.

Would Urd ever know she had never seriously attempted to hurt her, or that in several occasions she had managed to hold back real attacks against her. Only by pretending to attack her own daughter, Hild had managed to avoid more severe attacks against her by other demons. But Urd never knew about this. How would she receive a request for help from her mother?. A mother she hated and despised for leaving her.

While watching the activity in the temple she began to feel a deep weariness. The weariness of thousands of years playing the buffoon, the clumsy and the mocked one of the world of Hell, and besides that, being Urd´s hidden bodyguard. Now in return, she had received an even greater responsibility. She let out a bitter laugh. Now it was her, whose exploits everyone laughed in Hell, who was in charge of the fate of their world: Hild was dying; none of the possible successors was close to having the power to overcome the others. I this were made public, there would be a war for power, and she knew it would be a long war that would expose them to fall prey to their enemies.

She cursed Hild, for putting her it into this predicament and into this responsibility she never asked. But like Hild, knew she could not turn back on her duty, even if she believed that her people did not deserve it. All these years around Hild had allowed her to see behind the charade that Hild represented and the deep solitude in which she lived. Solitude Hild accepted as another part of her duty.

Then she cursed herself. This was no time to be sentimental. She had a mission, perhaps the most important of her life and something was not right. According to records from Nidhogg, a huge amount of energy had been released here, so she had expected to find great destruction. But everything seemed intact. And she did not perceive the magic of Urd or Belldandy in the proximity.

She already had some time watching and there was no movement. She knew by heart the routines of the residents from the temple. Belldandy and Keiichi should have been here half an hour ago, after finishing their work at Whirlwind. The mortal child who visited Skuld should be arriving, and she saw no traces of the mortal who spent so much time with Urd, despite his ridiculous car was already at the entrance of the temple.

She could not waste any more time, but decided not to enter into the temple limits, knowing that there were defenses against her. The small androids had been particularly efficient to detect and identify her. If she desired, they could be safely destroyed, but that was not the best way to get help from Urd, especially if they had actually been attacked by high level demons.

So, she took a decision. Before entering the temple grounds, she would verify first with Nidhogg the exact place of the energy released and would request to Walharen a global search for the Norns. I there had been an attack, the possibility existed they were no longer on earth.

I have just realized I started to write this story more than a year ago. In this time many things have happened. My father died almost a year ago, and still seems like yesterday, since we just recently buried his ashes under his favorite three "to help him grow" as he requested.

And at the same time I can see my older daughter and realize in just two years she will be at the University. Fortunately she still admires his crazy father who decided to start to write fan-fiction. Many things happen in a year, yet this story had still many places to go, before it reaches the end I have envisioned. So I wish the best for those that have followed my so far. I will put my best effort to make it worth.

This chapter has little action, but i think there were many things that needed to be said before continue. So, please keep reading.

Chapter XVIII

Preparations

-Dr., Dr. Shugahara. Good morning

The doctor heard a sweet and distant voice. But he could not understand what she was saying.

- Dr. Shugahara is time to wake up.

The voice came closer, could he be dreaming? The voice was unfamiliar. He tried to open his eyes, but instead of darkness, he felt like a great flood of light was invading his brain.

- Ah! My head, what is this pain?

He heard his own groan as if he had shouted, his body ached, and his head ached, where was he? It was strange, he remembered that he had asked that question before, but the headache did not let him think, and then heard the voice again.

-Please wait, you have abused some of your body, let me help you.

Whose voice was that? He did not recognize her. Suddenly he felt warm and delicate hands touching his head. He had a déjà vu, that it had happened before and then the woman began to sing something that sounded like a prayer, it was monotonous and yet mesmerizing. It was something familiar.

Gradually, his headache began to dissipate. But his confusion remained.

He tried to open his eyes again, slowly since he feared the flash would appear again, but instead perceived the penumbra that precedes dawn. All was surrounded by soft red glow as if the first rays of the sun were trying to announce his impending arrival.

Finally, in the shadows he began to distinguish a feminine silhouette, he exclaimed - Urd! - Then tried to get up but was weak, then realized the women had very short hair, so different from the beautiful long white hair of his Goddess. Finally he recognized her and then everything came to his mind. His body shuddered as the memories of the past few days were mixed together: the battle, the sight of wounded and battered Urd, waking in the middle of a squadron of Valkyries, having been ready to die for touching the structure of space-time...

It was so hard to accept that all that had happened. His world had turned upside down.

He now realized that this woman could not be Urd. She also had a beautiful female form but did not move with Urd´s flirtation and sensuality; instead had an almost military stiffness in her movements was difficult to decipher her expression.

- You are Othala! What happened? Why am I here?

He heard a sigh of relief from the women, his body ached but realized it was only because he had overslept; slowly the fatigue was fading away. As his body began to relax a familiar feeling invaded him, it was the total relaxation after a stressful experience.

- Doctor Shugahara, calm down, you will soon be well; I began to understand how your bodies work. A little more magic would have helped but we must avoid using it. I had to use one of Urd's potions to make you sleep. When Urd recovers, I will have a long talk with her, my opinion about potions has changed.

Potions? - Potions? Urd? - He just remembered to have given the bracelets to Lind, and then nothing.

- Urd! How is she?

- She is stable, thanks to you. You arrived just in time, we now have enough energy for several days and thanks to you, we do not have to worry about running out of energy. You're people assured us that we have a constant supply.

- My people? Have you talked with people from the University?

Othala could not help smiling at his concern, the situation promised to be interesting.

- Those people respect you; several young people came to see how you were and also wanted to know about Chrono´s health. Lind was not very pleased, her commands are to pass unnoticed, but could not refuse their visit. They are very interesting mortals. Their curiosity and their passion is moving. I hope to see them again. But you will have to talk with Lind; she thinks everything is out of control. She is a great warrior but all this is outside her experience.

Shugahara tried to imagine what would have been that meeting between lot of curious scientists and warrior goddesses. But it might be the best, I feel we can trust them and we need allies. Here was something he had to take note, Othala spoke with great familiarity about Lind, and apparently she was not directly under her command. That would greatly facilitate communications. Then he remembered that he had a painful question to ask.

- So the new bracelets have worked?

Othala nodded but still she some expressed concern that Dr. Shugahara interpret correctly

- But ... Still, not enough is it?
