This is like a short story type of thing I wrote, for fun lol.
Of course it’s meant as an inside joke.
This is not an accurate representation of Emperor or Emperor Black. I’m just having fun here lol.
Scout: THEY’RE COMING!!
Luther: Quick, barricade the doors!
Me and the other Emperors quickly blocked the entry to the Emperor’s Lounge, pushing against the door with all of our combined strength.
Things had gone awry ever since the release of Emperor Black. The shiny object syndrome had unleashed itself across the land of Subliminal Club, affecting stable stackers and experimenters alike.
Many of the old Emperors had switched their stacks, choosing to run the new Emperor Black. A few of us, me included… were able to resist the shiny object syndrome.
The Black Emperors.
They were beguiling beyond comprehension, compellingly dark and majestically dominant. Within their being they possessed insurmountable amounts of raw power, that when combined with their superhuman focus… made them a force to be reckoned with. Very little was known about them, as most of them preferred to remain in the shadows of solitude.
One of the Emperors near me was visibly shaking. Nothing had prepared him to face the invincible power of the Black Emperors.
Wimpy Emperor: There’s too many of them, we’re outnumbered! Let’s just surrender while we have the chance!
Luther: Oh shut up god dammit! Have you even integrated the Emperor script?
Smart Emperor: I think he’s been overexposing, Luther.
Luther: Fucking knew it… SMH.
Smart Emperor: I tried to tell him about the recommended listening guidelines.
Luther: Just shut up man… Now is really not the time for this crap.
BOOM! It was at that moment the lights went out in the Emperor’s Lounge. Complete and utter darkness surrounded us all.
Luther: What in god’s name is going on aro-
Before I could finish my sentence, a pressure with incalculable force slammed the doors open. We all went flying across the room.
The Black Emperors had arrived.
As I crawled through the rubble and darkness, I called out to my fellow Emperors but there was no response.
A smoldering light flickered from out of the corner of my eye.
Luther: Wimpy Emperor? Is that you?
I went closer towards the light… only to find myself face to face with darkness itself.
Black Emperor: Greetings, Luther.
Luther: Who are you?! Reveal yourself!!
Footsteps echoed, as the smoldering ember of light approached. A dark figure emerged from the light.
Black Emperor: Hahahaha
Luther: My brother, what… what have they done to you!?
Black Emperor: Saint and Fire have done a great job. They’ve made me… STRONGER!! HAHAHA
I didn’t waste any time. I quickly unsheathed my Emperor’s blade and lunged after the Black Emperor.
That’s when I felt it. A feeling I’ve never felt before. I could feel his intensely dark and beguiling aura, I could feel his darkness. Such raw power. Such dominance. Such status!! Enough to strike fear into the heart’s of the gods themselves. Enough to invoke the beginning of Ragnarok, the Twilight of the Gods.
The Black Emperor grinned as I moved towards him, showing no signs of fear. There was a quick blur of movement, as he revealed his Black Emperor’s blade. It looked just like mine, but was darker
and glowing with fire.
With one movement of his blade, he managed to disarm me as if I were a mere child. Such a precise movement could only be pulled off with the utmost focus. My Emperor’s blade clanged across the floor as I no longer had anything to protect myself with. I fell to my knees, brutally outclassed.
Luther: Such self-control?! But how??
Black Emperor: I have embraced my shadow, brother.
Luther: What is this madness?!
Black Emperor: This?.. this is Emperor BLACK.
Suddenly, over a dozen Black Emperors revealed themselves from the shadows.
Black Emperor: Join us brother… Embrace the darknessssssss.
Black Emperor: So it shall be… -motions to the other Black Emperors-
Black Emperor: Grab him.
Luther: Let me go!! Let me go!!
Black Emperor: You will give in brother… As we all have… Hahahaha.
The shiny object syndrome which I had resisted all this long… had returned with 100x the force.
I resisted with as much strength as I could muster, but to no avail. The rise of the Black Emperors would go down in history forever… and I was to join them.
