    LEGO The Five Golden Brick Temples: Chapter 5

    ((Epicness: Just so you know, I'm making capitalization and punctuation errors on purpose.))<p>"Somepony call Brickley's Believe It Or Not! We got ourselves a wolf genius!" Firework shouted.<br>"please do not." Photolupin tapped.<br>Flain looked at the white puppy in amazement. "You can understand us?"<br>"yes i can. i would speak but i cannot do that as i am still too weak to do that"<br>"Too weak? You blasted my phone out of my hand!" said Sanya.<br>"alas another gem needs to be activated before i can speak. but i rather much have it not activated. it would also mean that umbralupin would be more powerful."<br>[Umbralupin?] Flain thought. He would assume that it was someone Photolupin knew, but he had to ask. "Who's Umbralupin?"<br>"umbralupin is my ev<_>il counterpart. we used to be the creature shown in the mosiac inside the temple. it was a very powerful being but one day a battle between good and ev<_>il ensued. it was divided between the side of the selfless heroic figures and ponies and the powerseeking vi<_>llainous figures and ponies. this inner turmoil suddenly made it split in half creating me and umbralupin. we fought in the war but we were so dangerous that we and our power were sealed away in gems. if all five gems were activated then both i and umbralupin will be returned to full power. we must destroy the other gems before this happens."<br>"At the cossst of your own powersss?" Toxio hissed.<br>"if it means that then so be it. anything to stop him from gaining the power to potentially destroy the world. the only way to destroy them without unleashing our powers is by also using magic, but its the kind only i and umbralupin can use. thankfully i am strong enough to use it." she typed.<br>"Me have question. Where are Temples?" Krader asked.<br>"the easiest one to access is near gallop town in equestria."<br>"Then let'sss go to Gallop Town!" hissed Swiral, and everyone/pony began to leave except for Sanya and Tornado Spin.<p>Sanya stared at the Hybnobrai and Venomari.<br>"We got to get those two lovesnakes together!"<br>"But isn't it wrong to force people to love each other?" Tornado said<br>"We're not going to force them. We're just gonna nudge them towards each other." Tornado shrugged, and they both followed after the others.<p>((Epicness: I had the most in<_>sane idea.<br>Toxio: Really? What isss it?<br>Epicness: A "Mixels" werewolf fanfic.<br>Flain: Oh brother. Let me guess, I'm also the main character in that?<br>Epicness: Yup. But I'm gonna try not to commit canon character cr<_>uelty.<br>Toxio: Look! Ssshe jussst invented a new term!<br>Epicness: I did? SOMEBODY CALL THE OX<_>FORD DICTIONARY PEOPLE, 'CAUSE I JUST INVENTED A NEW TERM!<br>Toxio: -_- That wasss sssarcasssm.<br>(Epicness still runs to the Ox<_>ford place)<br>Flain: (Watches her run off) When do you think she's gonna be back?<br>Toxio: Perhapsss in the next chapter.))
