  • Hi everyone, I'm back after a pretty long hiatus! :D
    First I'd like to thank you all who have been following the story till now, I would not expect to get it so far since I started writing it back in 2012! <3 I'm here today to announce there will be a sequel called Lost Echo upcoming 2015. The following article will introduce the setting for the new story to make things easier to understand! ;)
    In short, the Council of Cosmos (or Cosmic Council) is a worldwide committee in charge of ensuring humanity's survival across the wildness of the universe after Earth's destruction. Besides their abilities, all councilors gained the power to time travel by surviving death.
    They have established their headquarters on Callisto in 3050, fifty years after Earth was blown up by a series of solar storms.
    Each of them has gone through a near death experience from which they were saved by acquiring special abilities granted to them by a magical item called the Die of Destiny. They're now semi-immortal beings, however their strength is also their weakness because eternity has a price too high in its own way, being neutral watchers to guarantee the balance of the world.
    Sylvestre Floralès - Nature
    Styx Van Hellson - Death
    Zoe Da Livia - Life
    Lancaster McMaelstrom - Weather
    Hitori Kokuboheki - Time
    Short names:
    Based in 3050 on Callisto, their headquarters are a series of exploration units sent during the previous centuries to study its environment, furnished with enough supplies to survive for the next centuries. Acts for the well-being and the balance of the universe after the solar system has partially blown up due to a series of solar storms.
    Composed of chosen beings who had gone through a near death experience once and have returned to life with supernatural abilities. Due to humanity’s greedy desire for development back in the year 3000 the planet Earth has turned out to become overcrowded whilst natural resources were lacking to welcome everyone so it provoked a series of natural disasters which led to its end too early.
    Survivors of this premature apocalypse were forced into exile on Callisto, one moon in the jovian system that had been recognized suitable for welcoming extraterrestrial life, to escape from the now unwelcoming planet Earth prey to volcanoes and tidal waves. Five spirited beings saved from a near death experience were elected to rule the land by the Die of Destiny: Sylvestre the elements summoner, Styx the undertaker, Zoe the divine messenger, Lancaster the storm-caster and Hitori the time traveller. Their duty is to ensure humanity’s survival in this messed up galaxy trying to overcome the difficulties of implementing life on a new planet in order to not reproduce the same mistakes that led to Earth’s wreckage.
    But an enemy, more dangerous than any man-crafted mass destruction weapon, lurks in the corner, waiting to strike. His name Oblivius, the almighty puppet master who pulls the strings of past, present and future, also known as the embodiment of nothingness.

  • It is an ability to control the flow of time. It is meant to fix time paradoxes and look through history at how to not reproduce the mistakes of the past to build the future.
    Sometimes it acts according to its own will not listening to its users. In its elemental state it is a clear liquid contained in a flask. It takes the form of an orb that transforms into a giant time clock in the process of its activation.
    To be fully activated it requires four people:

    the Judge : is the orb’s current owner and master. The outcome of the judgment is up to him or her. Can use his or her ability once in a while because it has undeniable consequences on one’s lifespan and the flow of history. Can only watch and not change the past though his final judgment impacts on the continuation of events.
    Activates his abilities when his life is endangered thus is not an immortal being.

    the Lawyer : is the Judge’s right hand man. Helps him or her on taking the right decision. Obeys to the same rules as the Judge except that he or she can’t intervene when the judgment has been set up. Eventually can take on the Judge's task if the Judge by oneself is not or no longer able to use his powers. As stated above the Judge submits to same constraints as any human being but has to deal with supernatural powers.

    the Witness: witnesses the events happening. Cannot intervene nor influence the judgement. Is a simple watcher who is reporting events to be remembered in any kind of record. His extra ability is to find and gather other users of the Judgment of Time when the situation requires it imperiously.

    the Fighter: the one who executes the judgment. His abilities are sealed, it is up to the Judge to decide whether he can use them or not thus is always under the Judge’s orders to act.

  • To make it short this is about the events occuring during the second part titled Countdown.
    At the end of first part Sam Suung (Alys) and Maa Kintoche (Mikael) have to travel through time to defuse the "Shovel of Death" to prevent the Traumatism from happening. They come back ten years ago to July 14th 2040, one day before July 15th when the Traumatism is supposed to happen.
    Therefore it implies that the past will be modified to some extent in order to not redo the same mistakes as before.
    July 14th, 2040:
    Alys and Mikael awoke in a quirky waste factory used as headquarter by a revolutionary whose leader is a young man in his thirties named Hitori (which means lonesome in japanese).
    Hitori and his people revealed themselves to be the ten years ago young Lonesome movement.
    Joining temporarily the uprising is likely the best way for Alys and Mikael to find support for their cause and help to access the nuclear power station where they will be able to defuse the "Shovel of Death". Thus they accepted and are part of the revolutionary under the protection of Hitori from now on.
    July 15th, 2040:
    The "Shovel of Death" has to be defused within twelve hours and so the countdown starts from 8 AM to end at 8 PM.
    8  AM:
    Nothing much happens. Each side makes its move towards the other.
    On one hand Hitori and his people including Alys and Mikael are riding motorbikes crossing the city to reach the nuclear power plant.
    On the other hand Hellmet Pitsbulk with the police in his pocket prepares his strategy.
    to be completed ...

  • - At the top ladder  the mastermind and leader is Sempaï whose identity is unknown.
    - The Wonderland squad is Alys’ knights meant to protect her. It is composed of Sempaï (Mad Hatter), Nokira (White Rabbit), Moto Rorola (Queen of Heart) and Sen Maa Kloud (March Hare). They are the only ones that know about Aly's identity
    - Protesters (intellectuals and politicians opposed to the regime) who are protected by the movement.
    - Every citizen in disagreement with the current government can join the movement only if he or she is trustworthy.
