"When I was a kid, my parents often worried that I wouldn't be able to handle reality - that I was focused too much on my little world. But now, they're worried why I love turning myself into a trampoline for my own little ones." - Azul humoring about her life so far
The world of Fantaji is home to so many people, an earthling "nation" appeared rather small compared to the numberless kingdoms that maintain its civilization. Like the earthlings, however, the kingdoms were greatly varied in terms of how they live and what they value as either moral, strange, or injust. The kingdom of Berrus in particular is seen by much of the world as "strange", "questionable", and sometimes even "fanatical".
Berrus' political powers, for example, consists not of a king or queen, but a family that has dictated their homelands in a surprisingly just manner. The food that is made and eaten in Berrus are either "blessed" by using various chemical compounds that they believe are seen as sacred to the Fictional Gods and Godesses, or are literally eggs that are eaten quickly before they hatch - causing the consumer's body to mutate in various ways while also incubating a child. However, if the consumer can't bear young, it'll do absolutely nothing but make them sick to their stomach. Berrus' military are no exception to its way of living.
Berrus' military forces compose entirely of an ancient tribe known as the Ko-Mala. The Ko-Mala believe that the mortal body of a man is flawed and feeble compared to that of a woman, as they also believe that women retain power from the gods that is sealed away, but can be unlocked through a special ritual that they and their dictating family hold dear and take very seriously. Because of this, it is forbidden for any man to participate in their armies, as they believe that only those that can unlock this power are worthy of representing Berrus. When it came to reality that the men of some species could bear young, they amended this to allow them to join in. Nevertheless, the Ko-Mala is overwhelmingly female-dominant.
The Ko-Mala's sacred ritual, known as Sacred Descendance, consists of a person that has graduated, is 20 UY old (the legal age of adulthood), and is able to bear young. The person is given, to eat, an egg of a Garelan Fiz, which when consumed immediately hatches due to a chemical reaction. This reaction then causes it to create three artificial uteruses that are connected to the consumer's digestive system.
The subject's back, belly, and butt all start to expand simultaneously at a very rapid rate as three Garelan infants form inside it. At the same time, their skin turns blue, their blood turns from red to purple (this is sceintifically proven to only be a cosmetic change), their limbs become increasingly nimble, and light blue marks start to form on their skin and hair that are comparable to that of tribal paint. After two minutes, the infants exit the host through a small hole that they create in their bloated back, which surprisingly does no harm to the host. The host's body then returns to normal in shape, but the effects of the ritual remain permanently linked to it.
Once the process has ended, the graduate gets to decide whether to keep any of their new children or send any of them to an adoption centre anywhere in the Fictional Multiverse. Fortunately, most members of the Ko-Mala plan this ahead of time so that they can raise a family and minimalizing what newborns they must give up. Many of the other kingdoms see this as a forced act that leaves their soldiers no choice but to have a family or toss it away, but many more understand that despite the fact Berrus is dictated, the people do maintain a choice whether or not to choose this path.
After the subject arrives to their new quarters, they put on new clothes, put their new family to rest the day away, and don their new Flexiton Armor - specialized armor made that would not pop off or be destroyed when the wearer uses their newfound powers granted from the ritual. This includes, but is not limited to, being able to instantly inflate or deflate their body at will. This is done through some DNA from the egg - which dissolved - fusing itself with the host, causing it to create a new system that connects their brain to the 3 sacs created by the process - the Vendetta System.
When the Vendetta System activates, the brain activates the three Vendetta Valves stored in the three Sacs. This causes the Valves to generate - you guessed it - Vendetta, a chemical fluid that is lighter than air, but heavier than helium. The placement of the Sacs allow the subject's body to inflate in the shape of a perfect sphere, while their arms and legs visually disappear into the sphere. This can be done to the point of the user becoming four times their normal size. The reason behind this is currently unknown, but it is feared that if they could even push that limit, they user would explode. Fortunately, the Vendetta System can never allow this, much like you can't faint from not breathing unless you had tape strapped to your mouth and nose (or something like that). The Sacs cannot be pierced or breached, even with magic or stuff like that, though the reason behind this probably can't be proven traditionally.
The effects of the ritual also causes the subject's body to limber up to no defined limit, allowing the user to twist and turn their body like as if they were an action figure. The Vendetta System also converts fat into energy, but it's still recommended by supreriors that all volunteers should still exercise prior and post the ritual. Although the Vendetta System, when used, can turn a living being into a "living bouncy ball", the user can also control the System to inflate their body to match a specific size and/or shape, which opens up countless ideas for special clothing made specifically for Ko-Malan soldiers.
The Caramel family weren't rich compared to other high-class families, and they weren't well-known either. They were nobodies - people that lived their successful lives quietly. None of their successes would be remembered, none of their children were drowning in fame or absurd allowances, they were just a successful family running a successful high-class business. Of course, that didn't mean they weren't busy.
Despite the efforts of Maine and Mileena Caramel, they found plenty of time to have and raise a family of 4. Their firstborn son Regald was artistic, yet also a bit bossy for all right-wrong reasons. Their second and third children were twins - Gabriel and Gabriella, both of which thought so much alike, you'd think they've a psychic bond, as well as playing mischievously with their friends and siblings. The youngest of their family was a girl named Cammy, who grew up to be a carefree video-gamer with a wild imagination that she bases her goals on.
Because of Cammy's seemingly obsessive virtual lifestyle, she was able to maintain grades that left her parents both glad and puzzled. Throughout her life, she had many arguments with her parents and eldest brother about how her life could be affected by her addictions. In the end though, despite various struggles that made her question if her parents were right - but not her brother because her brother is NEVER right -, she managed to graduate and signed up to be a Warrior for the Ko-Mala.
When Cammy underwent Sacred Descendance, she was handed a jumpsuit specially made for the occasion, though only for women. Knowing what the ritual would due to her, she drew a pattern on it that would appear as a blue basketball once she inflated. She knew that they subject keeps the jumpsuit after using it, so she had no shame in the act, yet not all of her observing superiors would smile with her.
"Alright," Cammy said, "to start things off, I just want to say I'm very hyped for this. I've been planning for this moment since I was in high school and I want to savor every cool little moment of this. Oh, hey, do any of you mind if I record this?" None of the superiors answered, they just stared. Cammy replied, "I'll take that as a "No"?"
Hanzo Grandheart VI, current leader of the dictating Grandheart family replied. "No. You are allowed to archive the ritual," he then murmured a humorous retort to himself, "It's not like it's illegal or anything."
"Awesome! Thanks a lot, Master Hanzo," Cammy responded gleefully. She took a bag from the corner of the lair's wall, pulling out a video camera with a stand to go with it. She activated the camera and spoke. "Hi! Uh, well, if you're seeing this, this is my ritual - and a, uh, birth video. But don't worry, it isn't as gross as *that* kind of birth so..."
One of the superiors interrupted, "Eye! Get on with it already I got a meeting to attend soon!" The officer was then warned not to interrupt again. Feeling some bit embarrassed, he did not argue.
Cammy shifts her eyes back to the camera, shrugs, and resumes. "Well that escalated quickly! Anywho, I've gotta eat an egg before it hatches. I hope you watch this my daughter - or *daughters* if I get lucky - because this'll be quick and this just may be what you'll do some day!"
Cammy walks a few steps back as a man with a dark cloak pulls a cart carrying a small container. Another man takes a table from the cart and places it in front of Cammy. The same man then takes the container and puts it on the table, opening it to show a green egg with speckles of blue, violet, and black. Cammy picks up the egg slowly, feeling rather nervous. She opens her mouth wide and swallows the egg whole. Cammy takes a moment to breathe and says, "Wow, tasted like cake!"
Exactly one second after her comment on its taste, she feels a sharp pain, causing her to bend and put her hands on her navel like as if someone had just punched her belly really hard. Loud noises of gurgling and hissing went off as she felt her body turn numb and black smoke expelled through her mouth like steam. Then, she felt three other pains, one below her breasts, one in the top of her back, and one in her butt. Following the pains, she felt like as if she just had packs of warm water planted inside her! Though Cammy didn't bother to notice, a thrid man - a robot - pulled out a package of diapers from the cart. After all, she is going to be a mother when this is all through.
Cammy almost loses her balance and shuts her eyes. She takes deep breaths slowly to help ease the pains, but she only got two in before she opened her eyes to the sight of her belly, back, and butt blowing up like balloons, as well as her skin turning from her natural black tone to a deep color of blue. The hissing and gurgling grew louder, to the point Cammy couldn't hear herself think, all while her body began to morph.
Before Cammy almost lost balance, now she feels as though she's almost glued to the floor. Cammy tried to look down, but she can't even see her feet. Through some sort of immature fascination, she rubs her left hand against her butt. Her bizarre interest in her bloating bottom just leaves her giggling at the sound of sloshing fluids.
"Goodness! I'm practically a blimp that can't fly," Cammy exclaimed. "Are you sure Vendetta's not made of jelly or something?" The hissing and gurgling grew even louder now. Now Cammy's ears are starting to ring at the sheer intensity of the sound of the three Sacs inflating in her body. She tries to cover them, but it only made it even louder to her, so she kept her ears open and tried to toughen out the sound. Now, the hissing and gurgling was so loud, it echoed across the whole facility. Cammy tries to look down, but she can't anymore. Her body had been inflated so much, she can't move her head because her neck was buried. She can now feel her body touching the ground, like as if she was being magnetized to the ground by the lower half of her body. She tried to move her arms to ask how much longer the process would take via sign language, but to her surprise, she couldn't. Cammy's legs had now disappeared into her gigantic transforming body, and her arms were bloating - unable to move and feeling very, very numb.
Cammy questioned worriedley, "Guys, how much longer is this supposed to take?" No one responded. The superiors were just quietly conversating like as if it was just a normal day where they got to meet each other. For the first time ever, Cammy was not only worried - she was scared. Her heart started racing as she felt her skin stretching, her suit tightening. She felt like as if she was getting ready to explode! She started to hyperventilate frigtheningly as she felt her feet lift from the ground and her body carry her. She moved her head left and right in panic as she started breathing even faster. As her body started to reach its absolute limit, she let out a painful scream of fear.
Suddenly, the room went silent. Cammy's body didn't explode. In fact, she had stopped inflating! Cammy's breathing started to slow down and become longer. She opens her left eye. She thought in her head, "Am I alive or am I dead?" Her feet are still levitating above the floor while her body lied on it like a rock. Hanzo let out a hearty laugh out loud.
"*Now* I see what you did there with your suit." He then asked, "If you planned this all, then why'd were you afraid you were gonna die?"
Cammy couldn't help but smile and laugh with him. It wasn't just because she liked his humor, but she was overwhelmingly relieved to be alive! As she laughed, tears of joy spilled from her eyes, forming two raindrop-shaped marks under her eyes. Suddenly, she felt her body begin to vibrate. Her heart stopped when she heard the loud noise of gurgling reemerging. She gulps in fear and her smile turns into a face full of fear as panicked thoughts run into her head again.
"Oh please, no more! I'm ready to cover the whole room with myself! Oh pleasepleasepleaseplease no more! I don't want anyone to see me explode! What if my kids survive and I die like in the movies?! Oh Aria, please don't let me die! I graduated just a week from today! I can't die now! Oh God am I going to explode?!"
Her body did not inflate more. In fact, it began to deflate! However, as she felt her body began to morph back to its normal state, she felt something moving. The newborns that were created in the sacs that blew her up were about to be born! She let out a continuous series of grunts and yelps as the infant in her back started to pierce her back, forming a hole that it would come out in. The grunts and yelps turned into screams as the other two from her belly and butt moved their way through her body in order to get to her back. While her belly still remained a giant sphere, her butt deflated to allow the infants to fall to the floor from a safe height.
After what seemed like 5 seconds of sharp pains in her back from three children at once, Cammy yelped in pain at the sound of her skin finally being punctured. The children had been born. The result was three beautiful baby girls. Cammy let out a sigh of relief. She did it! But wait... she felt something else moving inside! There's no way! "There's no possible way," she thought to herself. "There is NO way at all that there's one more kid inside me!" But there was! It made its way up to her back, coming out of the hole made by the three girls. Out of it came three boys. Everyone gasped in disbelief.
As the rest of Cammy's body began to rapidly deflate to the sound of soft gurgling, commotion could be heard among the crowd. The robot with the diapers, however, did not act surprised in any way. He just did what he was supposed to do - gently clothe the newborns. Unlike normal children, Garelan infants never utilize embilical chords (which also meant they couldn't have belly buttons). Thus, he was able to clothe the newborns no problem.
Once the children had been clothed, a table came from the floor. A monocular device of some sort popped up from the table, scanning the newborns. The device then appeared surprised, scanning them again before hesitatingly have 6 containers come from the table. The three men carefully take the children to the containers, color coded by their gender. Once the children had been seated, Cammy had fully deflated, with her skin completely turned blue, the tips of her toes and fingers being light blue, and a decal on the top of her hair that resembled a raindrop. She walks slowly to the newborns in disbelief. She didn't plan for this, this was abnormal. What was she supposed to do?
"Whoa," Cammy said calmly, "I just had *6* kids? ... Th-there's no way!" Hanzo slowly stood up, amazed at not a possible scandal, but at what many would, hands down, consider as a miracle. This woman almost exploded giving birth to not three, but SIX children! No wonder she swelled up more that she should have!
Cammy turned to the dictator for wisdom. "Master Hanzo, what do I do? I can't handle six kids myself! I... I... I didn't see this coming! Please don't do anything bad! I-I I didn't do anything to make this happen!"
Hanzo took a deep breath and answered, "Calm down, Ms. Caramel. You've done nothing wrong. Frankly however, I am very unsure of what to do about this. Not even the wisest of men or women could handle singlehandedley rasing a family of six."
Cammy turned back to the children, "Well... someone's gotta have an idea, right?" No one responded. Cammy asked again with tears of uncertainty running down her face, "Right..?" No one responded. Overwhelmed, she dropped on her knees to the floor and started crying. She was royally screwed. She knew she'd have to give up some of her precious little miracles just to ensure she can keep her job. Watching over three kids while fighting for her kingdom is big enough, but she can't handle six! She just couldn't help it, she didn't even care if the camera was catching it all. Nothing mattered at the moment. It was either them or her and she was traumatized by the very thought.
Hanzo's wife, Leonna, walked over to him. She put her hand on his shoulder to get his attention. "Han," Leonna said, "I know most women usually just ship their unneeded to an adoption centre, but clearly this woman anticipated to raise a happy family without needing to do that."
Hanzo replied with concern. "But honey, how else is she going to... to... survive? Even *I* can't raise six children by my own!" Leonna smiled softly, "But you're not. ... Sweetheart, we both know we've tried and realized we can't have a family by ourselves." Hanzo's eyebrows raised in surprise. "Leonna, are you implying we should..."
Before he could finish his question, a stranger appeared from the halls. It was Cammy's brother Regald. "Master Hanzo," he spoke, "I will raise some of my sister's children in her place if you will it."
One of the superiors replied, "Who the hell are you?" Cammy slowly lifted her head, surprised to see her brother was apparently in the right place at the right time. She wasn't sure whether to be mad at him for following her - much like he did when she went on dates with cute boys - or to be glad he wants to help her get out of this mess.
Regald replied, "My name is Regald Caramel. Colonel of Team Gold of the Blacklight foundation. I was asked by Mistress Chief Raku Wilson to attend my sister's ritual because of how special it was for her. I will not lie though, I planned on attending whether if it was with or without her permission. She's my sister and care for her, sir."
Cammy sniffled, cried a bit more, and smiled. She was touched by her brother's care. Deep inside however, it weirded her out a bit to see Regald throw himself this deep just for her. She couldn't help but thank him.
Hanzo was silent. He tried to think of something to say, but Leonna decided to talk for him for Cammy's sake. Leonna asked, "May I offer a proposal?" Regald replied, "Yes, Mistress."
"There are six children here. Cammy wishes that none of them go to any adoption centres and you, Mr. Caramel, wish to take some of hers under your wing. My husband and I have tried to start a family ourselves for the family's namesake. Unfortunately, however, we had found out eventually that I was barren. Therefore, I propose that we each keep two children. This will spare Cammy the pain of a family too large for herself to handle *and* the pain of seeing them shipped off to the stars to be claimed by another family who'd raise them for her, never to live aware of who their true mother was."
Cammy immediately jumped up, some tears falling from her still tear-drenched face. "It's a deal," she immediately replied. "I know some of these guys are probably gonna be mad at us once they find out about all this... but I don't care. As long as they get to grow up with people I absolutely know I can trust, I'll gladly share them with you. Because I would be damned when I make the gamble of sending these guys to whoever knows where and end up with some of the best or some of the worst people that are alive." The spot on her back that was formed by the birth began to glow, mending itself. In its place came a giant heart colored purple.
Hanzo, now with a confident look on his face, replied. "Then it's decided. Regald and Cammy will select four of the six children, two each. Whoever is not picked will be raised as our new heirs to the throne." Cammy and Regald took some time deciding which little ones to take. All six were equally adorable and had plenty of potential. However, Cammy's first thing to notice about the children was that there was a boy and girl for each of the two color palettes - blue and purple, black and yellow, and purple and goldenrod. Bingo!
The two agreed that Regald would take the two that matched the color scheme of Blacklight, though he thought it was silly, and Cammy would take the ones that matched her "new look". When they had made up their minds, two men carefully and slowly took the remaining two to Leonna and Hanzo. The deal was done.
Exactly six Universal Years later, Cammy had gotten home from a hard day at work. Her Flexiton armor was covered with mud and bits of grass, she smelled of lazer fire, and her hair was soaked. She had to lead Team Violet against an ambush from Team Spectre, one of the most elite groups of soldiers trained by their fierce rivals of the Kagena kingdom. And that's big news because she's not in charge! Her boss got 1-hit k-o'd before the fight even began when he was blasted by a sniper. After a hard fought and well deserved victory, she took a victory lap by going to the store to get some special gifts for her children - Mei and Stanley. It was their birthday after all! Cammy tried to open and close the door as quietly as she could, but Garelan have enhanced hearing - she couldn't surprise them if she tried. Sure enough, they rushed down from their bedroom excited to see what mom got.
Using some of the natural "ninja" abilities gifted from their Fizz counterparts, they snuck into the living room and behind the sofa nigh completely silently. They shifted from one hiding spot to another so they could keep peeking at what mom brought home. Was it a new tv? Was it a bird? Was it a plane? For all they knew, it could even been a dinosaur! Cammy knew her kids too well. She couldn't hear them, but she was all too certain Mei and Stanley were hiding in the living room. Giving them false hope, she plays along with them and pretends she doesn't even notice them. She even tries to avoid smiling, because it was just such a great temptation to giggle at the two trying to "out-ninja" her again.
After 15 minutes, she had managed to unload all of her kids' pre-wrapped presents. She then walks into the living room, almost making it to the stairs to Stanley and Mei's bedroom. But once she stepped on the first stair, the two rascals appeared behind her with foam noodles in their hands, ready to strike! She takes her foot off the step and back onto the floor.
Cammy made a fake evil laugh, saying "The students try to challenge the master again?" Stanley and Mei replied in unison, "We learned much since our last battle Queen Quarton! We has even practiced talking at the same time to prove it!" Cammy walked to the coffee table and took the last foam noodle on the table. She then chuckled before saying, "Actually, I think you got that from your grandpa." Cammy swung at the two with the noodle, making noises like as if it were a lightsaber. Stanley and Mei blocked the attack, then retaliated noodles swinging and mouths gibbering. After battling the two for 30 seconds, she was cornered.
"We has you now, Queenie," taunted Mei. "Give us the treasure or be defeated by our blades," demanded Stanley. "I'll not be defeated like this," said Cammy. Mei and Stanley took one last swing at Cammy, she then made a fake scream as she pretended to fall down. She then lied on the carpet floor, belly up and tongue sticking out of her mouth.
The two then softly sat down on their mother's belly, triumphant in victory. Opening an eye, Cammy activates her Vendetta System to instantly inflate, sending Mei and Stanley up into the air! As Garelan, the two naturally had their own Vendetta systems that kicked into gear once airborne. Mei bounced onto the couch and started to literally roll on the floor laughing, whereas Stanley bounced perfectly up and down on Cammy's belly like a trampoline. After they all deflated, Stanley, Mei, and Cammy gave each other a big group hug.
"Welcome home, mommy," said the two children in unison. Cammy then lifted the two up and said, "Now, I think it's time you two get to see what's in these boxes." Mei excitingly asked first, "Is it a dinosaur?" "Oh, if only if could..." Cammy teased. "Happy birthday, you two. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did." The two excitingly got to the presents and started tearing them open in a typical joyous frenzy. The rest of the day was absolutely wonderful.
That night, once the two had gone to sleep, Cammy had gone to her bedroom, booted up her Dreambox system, then started a match of Fantaji Champions - her favorite MOBA. She had sound-proofed her bedroom, so she couldn't wake them up if she tried. As she started the queue for Quick Match, she eyed the video camera she used six years ago to film the ritual. A grim thought reminded her that the day Mei and Stanley find out they're not alone will not likely be a pleasant one. It was a secret she can't hold forever, because she knew that the only way three people could keep a secret was if two of them were dead. She's very certain that won't happen any time soon. One thing's for certain, when the day does come that the "twins" find out they're one-third of a family sextuplets, she has hope that this camera will be the one thing that settles the case to rest in peace.
Now, onto the fields of combat!
"No secret can be held forever, so it's a good idea to savor them while they last." - Cammy "Azul" Caramel
Alive, rebooted, and ready to roll!
