Other World Chimera [Naruto Fanfic] - Chapter 2
The soul is a complex thing. A conglomerate of energies that form the basis for any and all living entities. A data bank containing all possible information pertaining to said being. Complex, powerful and firm, yet fragile to a fault. From DNA memories, experiences, personality and many more the soul stores them all.
Aurora’s soul had gone through a traumatic experience as it had been overwritten and rewritten over and over again while within the chaos of time and space. Now that it had finally fallen into a stable reality once again its first instinct was to search for a vessel. Normally, souls would experience energy decay while outside their vessels. This of course could be mitigated through many means. However, a soul that has left the body will for all intents and purposes disappear after experiencing decay to never be recovered.
Aurora’s soul was different. Whatever happened to it within the chaos of time and space made it resilient to a fault. It as any other would decay and disappear with time. However, how long it would take for it to do so was up for debate. Not that it matters as after a day it found what it needed.
A single zygote just formed in the womb of a woman was the perfect vessel. It was like a clean slate. No soul resided in it yet and so it could be modified and adapted to house the soul. There would be no rejection and as such a life that was supposed to end could be brought back.
As soon as Aurora’s soul entered extreme changes began to occur to the genetic material of the zygote. Mutation after mutation followed as whatever had changed her soul was now changing her new body. She would never come to know the full scope of what had integrated and changed her but for us who watch her story it would be better to disclose it.
For starters it’s better to explain what resides within the chaos of time and space. Aside from the chaotic primordial energies of time and space themselves there is also an innumerable number of things within. After all, chaos is connected to any and all realities and worlds. It would not be a stretch to say that anything and everything that could exist has once entered the chaos.
Of course the chaos of time and space also works as let’s say the multiversal trash-can. When a universe dies it gets torn by the chaos, reduced to its most elemental components. What might remain of them are the things that can withstand the chaotic energies within. That brings us back to what entered and changed Aurora’s soul.
The first thing to come in contact with the poor scientist was a lightning made out of pure energy. This lightning was the very representation of a primordial force. The speed force as its name implies controls speed and therefore the kinetic energy contained within an action or being.
Even though a link was established between Aurora’s being and the force itself said link was rather narrow preventing her from taking full advantage of its primordial powers. However, with time and effort she might be able to increase her connection with the speed force being able to use more of its power.
Another boon she got is a piece of an entity that is known as scp-682 or the hard to destroy reptile. Don’t let the name fool you though. The damned lizard is for all intents and purposes immortal. Capable of adapting to any and all situations it also boasts of absurd regenerative powers. Unfortunately, just like the speed force it didn’t provide the full scope of these absurd abilities. Instead, Aurora got a heavily degraded version of them.
If the lizard is capable of adapting in a matter of seconds Aurora would take days, months or even years depending on the situation. While the lizard can reform its whole body from a single cell in an hour or two. Aurora heals a little faster and can regrow lost limbs albeit the process would take a long time to complete.
Finally, an eye from the spider goddess shiraori. Shiraori is a goddess born from the boredom of her progenitor known as the evil goddess D. Through insurmountable odds and struggle Shiraori ascended into godhood and earned her name from D. Her eyes possess many powers from seeing a few seconds into the future to clairvoyance for kilometers. However, her most powerful ocular power is the eye of gluttony.
The eyes that can never be satiated. A skill created by shiraori with the intention to fight and defeat other gods by stealing their energy through her eyes. The eye of gluttony. Just like before Aurora didn’t get all the boons from the eye. However she did get the eye of gluttony. The eye of gluttony when activated changes her iris color to a bright pink while the pupil separates creating four new ones that surround the original one.
There are multiple factors that determine the rate at which energy is stolen. However, the amount isn’t large even when Shiraori used them. That’s why she used an untold amount of clones to stack the effect.
With all these modifications it would be safe to assume that Aurora would be an absolute monster in her new life. However, one has to remember that she does not know any of this information. It is up to her to realize her potential.
