  • Diana is really an angel. Charles is immature child. Anne is the best sibling with Edward. The relationship between Diana and Philip could have been great. I love how the queen realize that she doesn’t know at all her children and wonders why they finish all divorced and unhappy,,, like Diana is close to her children and motherhood and they all like “omg why people like her???”,,, yes she’s looks like a human being and not a robot. Seriously the queen knows better her dogs than her children

  •    Please read the prologue if you haven’t already! :)

    The early morning was slightly dark as the sun was still no where near from rising, which made it slightly difficult to see around the Sector City harbor. For Hidari Shotaro- Fuuto’s number one dectective- however, this wasn’t a problem as he was used to sneaking around and searching for clues. 

    “What is this place?” Shotaro laughed to himself after hiding behind a storage crate. He was baffled by the super tight, armed security that looked like they would kill without hesitation. The whole place was packed with CCTVs and sensors of all kinds as well! 

    “I did hear that they were blocking off the island to rebuild after the accident, but this…!” He shook his head and narrowed his eyes at the large ‘X’ painted on the security guards’ chest. 

    “I’d rather have not seen that…” He groaned to himself. “It looks like this place is going to need some more serious investigation.” 

    Without any hesitation, Shotaro activated a few Memory Gadgets and told them to look around and find whatever evidence they could. After sending them off, he started making his way past the rest of the storage crates to the hangar that was close by. He didn’t have much of a plan other than to look around and get to the targeted area as soon as he could. The only reason he was even on this island was due to an anonymous email sent to the agency. It was short and simple, with only the words “Find Professor Aida.” typed out along with the coordinates that led to Sector City’s Harbor sector. As per usual, instead of questioning the strange email, Hidari Shotaro and his partner- Philip- accepted it like any other client request. 

    Now, was that a smart idea? mmm…. probably not. But that’s how it’s always been. And Shotaro wouldn’t have it any other way. He slipped through and hid behind anything that could shield him from the eyes of the security guards. The more he infiltrated, however, the more he started to see Masquerade Dopants roaming about. Which threw him for a loop since he wasn’t expecting to see them there at all. Oh well, just another reason to keep looking into this mysterious island. 

    It took him around 20 or so minutes to finally get to the targeted area, but he still had a ways off before arriving at the exact location that the coordinates were located. 

    “It looks like it just over there.” Shotaro observed, looking at a what seemed like a giant wall. He’s probably going to have to transform into order to pass it. But before he could go any further, a dark voice emitted from a sudden burst of blue light.   

    “Just what are you doing, sniffing around here?!” it demanded, before displaying the site of a rather large man, surrounded by blue hues of light and sitting in a floating chair. 

    The sudden appearance surprised the detective, as he jumped back shouting. “Whoa! What kind of monster is this?!” 

    “I was wondering what was causing all this commotion.” The entity said to himself rather lazily. “And now I find that it’s nothing more than a worthless bug.” Ok. Maybe Shotaro wasn’t being as ‘covert’ as he thought.

    Shotaro sighed, knowing that he had no other way of getting through this. “I really wanted to do this like a true detective. But I’m afraid you leave me no choice.” 

    “C’mon partner.” Shotaro exclaimed, putting on his driver. His mind instantly connecting with a younger man who was patiently waiting back at their office. 

    They didn’t even need to speak to each other know what to do next. For they both held up their respected Gaia Memories and yelled “Henshin!” before inserting them into their driver. Within seconds, Hidari Shotaro’s body was engulfed into a half black, half green body suit; a suite that everyone from Fuuto knew and dubbed the protector of Fuuto city-

    Kamen Rider W.

    “Shotaro.” Philip greeted while observing the huge entity in front of them. “And here I thought that I wouldn’t be needed in this case.” 

    “Well, from what I’ve already witness so far,” Shotaro cracked his knuckles. “There seems to be a lot more to this than just finding a specific person.” 

    Philip responded with a short “hmm… I see.” just as the entity stood up from his chair and placed his two heavy feet on the ground, ready to fight. 

    “You ready, partner?” Shotaro asked. 

    “always.” Philip responded. 

    “Now…” The two said together. “Time to count up your sins.” 

    That’s when the entity attacked. 

    The fight was short, but not because the Kamen Rider was able to overpower the entity. In fact, the battle ended with W’s defeat. Even after using a few different Gaia memories to help them out, the two-in-one Kamen Rider was over powered by a final kick of the entity’s foot, knocking them out of their transformation. The force was so strong that even the Gaia memories in Shotaro’s possession ended up spilling over the floor near by. The last thing Shotaro saw, was the entity raising his staff as a mass of blue electricity formed around it. But before he could even move to get out of the way, everything went black. 

        —————————-

     When Hidari Shotaro came to, he opened his eyes and found that he had been moved to what seemed like a make-shift break room. 

    “Where am I…?” he asked himself. His eyes moving from the lumpy sofas, to the broken television set, and finally to the large widows overlooking the now raising sun. Despite being heavily bruised, he ignored the pain, stood up and walked over to the windows. The site before him didn’t look familiar at all, and gave him absolutely no clues as to what was going on. Thankfully, however, his question was answered within seconds. 
    “This is the city sector of Sector City.” a small, almost pleasant voice replied. Turning around, Shotaro saw a round, red and silver robot hovering in the air. 

    “City sector?” The detective repeated, a bit in shock. “Wha… how did I get here?”  

    “I deemed that an emergency transfer here was the most prudent course of action.” The robot replied, simply.  

    “An emergency transfer….” Shotaro raise his brow. “Um… W-well, I guess you saved me then. Thanks.” Then, he suddenly thought about what had happened right before passing out. He patted around his waist and pockets, only to find the Denden sensor. “Ah! What about the Gaia memories!?”

    “The memories were… dispersed during the transfer process.” 

    “ugh.” Shotaro groaned, shaking his head. “I guess it can’t be helped since it already occurred. Anyway, who might you be?” 

     “I am Ai.” The robot introduced itself with a curt nod. “I am an artificial intelligence system designed for navigational purposes.” 
    “Ai, huh.” The detective took off his fedora to brush some dirt off of the top. “Well, my name is Hidari Shotaro, a private detective from the town of Fuuto. Can you tell me what has happened to this island?” 

    “This island is known as Sector City.” Ai answered, somehow sounding a bit sad. “This city is know for it’s use of the mysterious energy source called ‘core energy’. In fact, the entire city is devoted to mining, researching and exploring the various uses for this energy as it is only recently discovered.

    “However, due to the recent accident, the island has been closed off to the public. After that, mysterious monster began to appear all over the city. As to why this has happened, I do not know….” 

    “I see.” Shotaro nodded thoughtfully. “Then, Ai, can you tell me if you know anything about a Professor Aida?” 

    “Professor Aida?” Ai hummed. “The name does sound familiar. I will check my data banks for any info.” 

    Not even a second later, Ai spoke again. “That name is on the guest list for an experiment, yes. But it is not on the list of evacuees.” 
    “hmmm… That might be a sign that Professor Aida is still somewhere on this island.” Shotaro thought to himself. “Alright, Ai. I was sent here by an anonymous source to find Professor Aida. Is it alright if I ask for your assistance?” 

    “My first priority at the moment is to ensure peace on this island.” The robot responded. “May I ask for your help in that endeavor as well?” 

    “Sure! I’m happy to help in anyway that I can!” Shotaro grinned, happy that he wouldn’t be alone in such an unfamiliar city. “Alrighty then. It seems that I still have my Denden sensor with me, so our first step should be to gather information.” 

    “But the city is full of monsters, even just outside this building.” Ai protested. “How will we be able to go outside without being detected?” 

    “You have a point there.” Shotaro agreed. If only he had his Gaia memories on hand. Then things would be a lot easi- oh! 

    “Well, Hello there!” Shotaro grinned, walking past Ai. He leaned down near a window and picked something up. 

    “It looks like the Joker is still in my hand after all.” He grinned, holding up holding up his found JOKER Gaia memory. “It always seems to find its way back to me in times of need.” Memories of the Kamen Rider Eternal incident rushed through his brain for a second. 

    “Alright, let’s do this.” Shotaro said, holding up the memory and pushing the small button. It rang out a loud “JOKER!” as a sign of activation. 

    “Henshin!” Shotaro yelled in reply before placing the memory into his driver. Unlike his shared transformation with Philip as Kamen Rider W, Kamen Rider Joker’s suit was covered form head to toe in black. Which was perfect for hiding in the shadows. 

    “Let’s go.” He motioned for Ai to follow his lead as they made their way out of the building. Once they got outside, they quickly hid behind a wall and watched as an army of the same security guards from earlier, started marching down the street. “What are they?” he asked Ai, now noticing how metallic and stiff their features looked. 

    “I do not know.” Ai responded. “But they’re some of the monsters that have been rapidly growing in the city.”

    “It looks like the whole place is overrun by them.” Shotaro observed, his eyes never leaving the army passing by them. 

    “May I ask a question?” Ai asked, curiously. 

    “Sure! Go ahead!” The detective smiled, forgetting that his masked covered it. 

    “What functions does the Denden Sensor posses?” Ai motioned to the Gadget hanging from his belt. 

    “Well, it can basically pick up almost anything.” Shotaro started, not really sure how to explain the complex device that Philip created. “Let me tell you, with one round around the island using this, we’ll be able to solve the mystery in no time!” 

    “But, with all the monster around…” Ai’s voice grew to worry. “That will be difficult. With the entire island shut down, we will have to defeat the enemy and free each sector in order to continue on.” 

    “Oh really now. Hmmm….” Shotaro thought for a bit. That would make things a bit more difficult. “Well, what about the guy in charge? There has to be someone around here running the place.” 

    “That would be Professor Zeus.” Ai responded. “He’s the lead researcher but has been unreachable since the accident.”  

    Shotaro sighed. “Then I guess we need to find him as well. What’s he like?” 

    “The workers say he is…. ‘unusual’.” Ai started to explain. “He is said to have frizzy hair, thick glasses and simply just smiles when spoken to.” 

    “I see. It doesn’t seem like he’s a super strict boss.” Shotaro said thoughtfully.

    “However, his achievements with Core Energy have made him a highly esteemed scientist.” 

    “Two scientists go missing around the same time after a mysterious accident. Just… what is going on here?” 

    Shaking his head, he unlatched the Denden sensor from his belt. “Come on. Let’s use this to help us figure out what our next step will be.

  • Hello there! I finally finished the prologue chapter of my first tumblr fanfiction; Power of Heroez. 
    As you can see, it’s based off of the Memory or Heroez video game. I was watching someone livestream the game as I don’t have a switch or any way of getting the game to play myself. But as I watched, I kept thinking of interactions between the Riders that we never got to see. Like, why didn’t Aruto question why W had two different voices? Why are they only using their rider names for Eiji, Date, Goto, and Aruto? Why didn’t they have any bonding sempai-kohai talk? 

    Questions like these are what I usually have while watching crossover movies and so on. So I just decided to come up with my own story that will answer them! Now, this fanfiction is just one huge headcanon and not actually confirmed by Toei. Plus, it’s also just for fun. I hope everyone will enjoy it!

    Love, Logik!

    Oh, and because I want to get it as close to the actual storyline of the game as much as possible, I’ll be using the subs that the game provided if not my own translation. Which will most likely be most of the time. I really hope that’s alright and won’t get into any trouble for it.

  • Jesus calls Philip and Nathanael

    43 The next day He decided to leave for Galilee. Jesus found Philip and told him, “Follow Me!”

    44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the One Moses wrote about in the Law (and so did the prophets): Jesus the son of Joseph, from Nazareth!”

    46 “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Nathanael asked him.

    “Come and see,” Philip answered.

    47 Then Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and said about him, “Here is a true Israelite; no deceit is in him.”

    48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked.

    “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you,” Jesus answered.

    49 “Rabbi,” Nathanael replied, “You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”

    50 Jesus responded to him, “Do you believe only because I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.” 51 Then He said, “I assure you: You will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
