thank you Lexxversians for taking the time to look into what this dreamer, me, imagined in the world of my mind could have happened after the conclusion of season 4.

After i watched through the entire Library, Seasons 1 through 4, the third time, I couldn't stop thinking and dreaming about stories of the futures of the characters that i grew to love so much. So I decided since there will never be a Season 5 I needed to write these stories out for myself and possibly other Lexxfans, to get a glimpse into what could've happened to our beloved Lexxans.

I highly encourage any type of feedback and please feel free to tell me to change things and I gladly will. I have 19 chapters laid out and I'm up to 5 so if you like the first two I will post up 3&4 and the others as they come

thank you
and enjoy



Chapter 1  A New Way to Live

    It took a few moments to take it all in before being able to fully sink in to this new reality. Within several quick flashes of time the Lexx had passed away, the Earth had been blown up, Xev and Stanley had found themselves inside little Lexx and of course the most shocking of all of it, Kai had died within moments of being brought back to life. Xev didn't know what to do with herself but she was grateful for the fact that now her and Stanley wouldn't die, but it was very hard for her to think about anything other than the fact that she'd never see Kai again. She wandered aimlessly around little Lexx getting lost inside the memories she had of Kai and of course she embellished certain moments just a little bit. Suddenly she heard a scream coming from below her. It was a strangely familiar scream.   
    " Xev did you hear that?" Stanley said as he came running into the passageway she currently was in. "Yes, it almost sounded like 790", she said back to him. "I suppose he could've been propelled into space when Lexx dissolved" she paused for a moment and thought to herself that perhaps little Lexx could've eaten him, which would explain how he got inside the ship. She then looked at Stanley and proposed this out loud while wondering whether she cared enough to go and rescue him. She could see the same ambivalence in Stanley's eyes. It seems she wasn't alone in her bad feeling towards 790. I mean he did try to kill them several times. And he did blow up the Earth. After a few moments her curiosity got the better of her and she began walking towards the sound of the screams. Stanley followed her.
    As they got closer it was clear that it was 790 and he was indeed inside little Lexx's belly. How he did not get dissolved in little Lexx's stomach acids she could not figure out. They managed to find a thin membrane that clearly blocked off the stomach from the passageway they had trailed the voice to. They tore through it knowing little Lexx could easily rebuild it. And sure enough tilted over on the stairs leading up from the stomach acid was that crazy little robot head.
    "Xev is that you?" "Yes 790 it is me" "Is Kai with you?" "No. How could he be? Kai is dead!" "Well, yea, that's not news" 790 said in his usual demeaning tone. "Yea but this time he's really dead! Like gone forever. Dissolved." "It's not possible I don't believe it. We have to go and search for him" 790 responded back as if this wasn't even possible. "That will be pointless 790. Kai was made alive by Prince just before he got trapped inside Lyekka's asteroidship and then the doomsday machine thingy went off and shrunk the ship into the size of a pea...which includes Kai's body. He's gone! Deal with it!"
    She said all this to 790, but also felt this reality within herself, which of course made her completely distraught. 790 wailed out in agony as robot tears streamed down his eye screens. But given the fact of how in love Xev was with Kai it didn't take long before 790, Stanley and her were all anxiously watching the bridge as 790 and little Lexx searched for him in the empty space around where the asteroid had been when it had vanished. After spending close to an entire day looking finally she was ready to give up."No we can't give up, I will stay here until I find him" 790 whined. "Well good luck" Xev said sarcastically as she walked away. She walked back and knelt down beside 790 and started whispering to him " You are never going to find him" Then she shouted, "HES GONE!"  790 looked up and stared at Xev as if she was the stupidest person ever to exist and then he squawked back "Shut up love slut!" Then he neurotically continued to scan the same area of space over and over again.
" I'm hungry I'm going to see if there is a galley." She then stopped after two steps and looked over her shoulder at Stanley.  "You coming Stanley?" "Yea sure Xev I could use a little food. As they walked away 790 spoke very sharply to himself 'Good riddens love.slut!"  Xev turned around right as she got to the edge of the bridge and waved and said ‘bye’ in her sweet little way.
    It was not hard to find the galley. They were happy that at least there was a familiar setting in this new ship "Ok, I wonder if little Lexx is able to give us our favorite blue Goo yet" Stanley said excitedly. There was a short silence and then Stanley asked little Lexx if he could make food.  Little Lexx responded in his cute baby lexxyfly sorta way "yes Captain I think I can”. "Well ok give us some of that blue gooey goodness”. little Lexx spewed out the oh so familiar blue goo that Stanley and Xev had grown so accustomed to eating. They started eating it and then Stanley said half sarcastically and half truthfully "gotta love it”, since of course by now they kind of had actually started to like the blue goo. Moments later an overwhelming fatigue swept over Xev. " I'm going to find somewhere to take a little nap' Xev yawned "OK Xev... I guess I’ll go check on 790 and see if we can't start doing some fruitful searching”. Xev assumed he meant searching for a new home. She walked out of the galley and became more and more tired every step she took. She found a little room, which almost reminded her of her old bedroom aboard the big Lexx. But of course it was without the big comfy round bed, which she had grown to really like. It took less than two minutes before she was curled up in a ball on the floor asleep. She slept deeply and with no dreams.
    After days had passed and 790 had finally given in to the fact Kai was gone, albeit forced by Stan's command to little Lexx to leave the area, they started scanning the enormously large and somewhat vacant looking empty space for any celestial body. After days of brooding 790 actually decided to help. "Why the sudden change of heart" Stan asked 790 "well if I can find somewhere for you to live perhaps you will help me get back my man " "jeez! 790, are you crazy?" Xev shouted as she came onto the deck. 790 proudly responded "crazy, neurotic, and obsessively in love" Xev turned away  "well love doesn't bring back the dead!",  then she said silently to herself "I should know".
     "anyways, where were we Captain?" 790 said very respectfully to Stan "wow! robothead... you just called me Captain" "Well, I'm feeling particularly generous right now cause without you guys I won't be able to get my man back" Xev made a face at Stan indicating her frustration with this whole scene. "well ok 790 whatever floats your boat err. head" Stan said to 790 very amicably.
    Xev signaled for Stanley to come away from the bridge. He walked towards her "what's up Xev?" Xev looked concerned " I'm a little worried about 790” "Worried? What do you mean?" “How long do you think this is going to last before he accepts Kai is gone, realizes we can't do anything to help him and then tries to kill us again" " well it is 790" "yea that's true. But that doesn't mean he'll suddenly get all psychotic on us or me at least." "Yea i guess since you're not captain he doesn't really need you” “oh thanks that makes me feel much better".   790 shouted from the bridge " hey!.... hey!... i found something"
    Stanley and Xev went back to the bridge to see what 790 had to show them. "Well ok 790 what is it?' Xev asked "Well first off since you've forgotten, i have enhanced hearing. I heard everything you said and you're right i don’t need you Xev. But since right now I’m without my man that is all i care about so you need not worry." He paused for a second and then added "i will get him back". Xev inpatiently asked, "Ok 790.... so what did you find?"
    " I have found 343 planetoids orbiting 87 stars in the immediate vicinity. Most of them are completely uninhabitable even by my standards. But i did find a couple that seemed to contain life and one that for sure had potential' "What do you mean had potential?" Xev asked very curiously. 790 continued "Well it had a strange electromagnetic field that I've only seen in one other place" 790 paused "Yea?' Stanley asked anxiously. "Stanley, do you remember old Holly the staff which you used to destroy Vlad"  "yea what about it?" " Well, certain ancient inhabitants of the Earth posessed a special gift which they called magic" "Magic, what is that?" Xev asked intrigued. "Magic is the power of influencing the nature of reality by supernatural forces” "Like protoblood?" Xev asked. "Well not exactly. It's actually much more powerful than that. The highest magician is able to change anything” "anything?" Xev asked, now listening very intently. "Yes. Anything. Which means if the planet that seems to possess this same type of field that I first saw in Old Holly does have to do with magic, then perhaps there are still Magicians on it who can help bring back Kai" Xev pondered this for a few moments and then turned to Stan "Well... should we try it? " "Yea, we got nothing better to do" Stanley put his hand out from the deck on the bridge and called out to little Lexx " little Lexx?" "yes captain?" "hey 790 where is this planet and how far is it from here?" " It is not far. If little Lexx can move at the same top speed big Lexx could, we could be there within a few days. And besides the other two planets which seemed to contain life are very far away" "Ok 790 tell little Lexx the coordinates." 790's eyescreens went into digital search mode and after a few seconds he said aloud the whereabouts of the planet. "790, what is the name of the planet?" "Dalinor" "ok little Lexx you heard the robot, take us to Dalinor" "as you command, captain."





Chapter 2 Dalinor

    So it turned out not only could little Lexx move as fast as big Lexx but it could actually move faster. After a couple of days of travel the small planet finally came into view. It was a swirl of reds, emerald greens and deep blues, and the whiteness of cloud cover blanketed over all the colors like a dreamscape straight out of a painting. It gave an uncomfortable feeling to Stanley right away. He was sure they could expect trouble down there. One thing that occurred to Xev was if the little Lexx was born from the big Lexx it was pretty likely that there wasn't a moth chamber, because there couldn't possibly be any moth breeders. How would they have known to go into the little Lexx. Xev turned to Stanley " Stanley, once we get close enough to the planet how are we going to get down there" "well Xev, we will go down in a mo...."Stanley stopped himself and looked perplexed. Xev was sure he had just realized the same thing. He walked off not saying a word. She followed him. They walked through a couple of passageways and then entered into a large cavern, which seemed to go on for miles.
             "Ok if it has a galley and it looks like big Lexx it should stand to reason that there would be something at least similar to a moth chamber here, right?" Stan said to Xev, while walking hurriedly. "Yea but even if there is a moth or two or three, there is no way there could be moth breeders. How could they have gotten in here?" "I don't know Xev, but I reaaaaaly hope that there is something" Before they knew it they were standing in front of what appeared to be a moth chamber and inside it were moths and most shockingly of all, moth breeders. Xev was confused but also ecstatic. "Wow… I don't believe it,” she said. Stan looked very shocked unable to put it together, "How is this possible?"
     They hopped into one of the moths and began flying back the way they came. After much more time passed than it took to get there Xev turned to Stan who looked as concerned as she was. "Stan is it just me or is this taking a lot longer to get back than it took to get there?” "Yea you know what Xev it is taking a lot longer. The cavern we were in which seemed so big at first but then turned out to be much smaller is now seeming to be bigger than we originally thought”
"Do you think it's possible that little Lexx grew in that time we were in the moth chamber?" “Yea, that would make sense but this is a lot bigger than I imagine he could grow in such a short time" "well I guess it is just another oddity to add to our list of strange things about little Lexx". After more time passed Xev became more and more anxious to get back to see how close they were to the planet now. "I wish we were just there already" Stan whined and in a flash they were there. "Well that was weird" Xev said.
    They climbed out of the moth and walked towards the deck to see how close they were to the planet now. They were right next to it. It was even more beautiful... and eerie up close. "790 how did we get so close to the planet so quick" Stan asked " I don't know. I looked away and thought about how much I just wanted to get there and then I said out loud 'I wish we were there already', and then when I looked back we were" "Very strange, very strange indeed" Stan said now a little more taken off guard. "Well should we try to contact the planet? I always say better to reach out from the safety of our ship first" "don't waste your time Tweedle I have already scanned all frequencies and I found no signs of any signals being sent or received from the planet" "Did you try contacting them?" "Did you just hear me Tweedle there is no signals being sent or received, so if you try to contact them you will send out a message into dead space and no one will respond" "well it doesn't hurt to try" "no it doesn't hurt but it's a waste of time. If they wanted to be contacted they would have something set up so we could communicate with them. So either A they don't wish to be contacted, and we have to go down there and be persuasive" "yea like that’s going to happen" Stan said sarcastically "or B there is no one left on the planet to be contacted" " well I hope it isn't that one" Xev said half wanting there to be people and also half not wanting there to be people, since it is not necessarily certain that they will be friendly if there are people down there.
     Stanley turned towards the planet through the window screen and said to little Lexx "little Lexx open up every frequency you got and broadcast what I'm about to say towards that planet there ok" "ok captain" "People of the planet... 790 what's the name of the planet again?" "Dalinor you forgetful dimwit" "People of the planet Dalinor we are the crew of the Lexx and we are looking for a habitable planet which has food, nice people, nice women (he said a little softer to himself) "nice men" Xev chimed in "and....ummmm... and....    is there anything else we're looking for?” he said quietly to Xev. 790 responded first, "Uh… yea, we want a magician to bring back Kai". "Ok 790 but I’m not going to ask them that right away" Stanley said back " Why not?" 790 said, now frustrated with Stan. "Because, they might....   ' And before he could finish his sentence the signal was turned off. "little Lexx why did you turn off the frequency broadcast" " I did not captain it was turned off for me" " well that's weird”
    Stanley was now a little more anxious. He looked at Xev a little scared. "Well I guess there is nothing left but to go down there" Xev said in her usual way expressing her unconcern to danger "I don't know Xev, I really don't have a good feeling about this" "Stanley when do you ever have a good feeling” “If this were the Selies pleasure transport I'd have a good feeling" he said with a grin as he looked down at his crotch in his usual perverted, one track mind sort of way. "Stanley focus, we have to go down there to check it out. The other planets are very far away and I don't want to wander in space for the rest of my life" “errrr... ok" he said very reluctantly. "Take me too" 790 said. Xev looked at Stan "yea I think it's a good idea to bring 790. He can scan while we are down there" "yea speaking of which, how did you know the name of this planet if there are no signals coming from it or to it?" Stanley asked 790 very suspiciously "Well Captain Tweedle I am a model 790 robot and I have enhanced capabilities which allow me to know the history of things just by looking at them. It was the same way I was able to know the history of magic through old holly and know the names of the planets Lyekka and her sisters destroyed without having an actual file inside my database,” He said as if this were common knowledge. " I never knew that" Xev said surprised. "Well loveslave now you do" 790 responded rudely  "well that sounds like a very helpful tool" Xev said all perked-up. Stanley looked frightened and anxious but Xev ignored him and got in the moth with 790 in her hands. He followed.
    As they got closer and closer to the planet they were able to discern landmasses and large bodies of water through the cloud cover. And when they got even closer to the landmasses it was clear that they were covered with cities, large ones too and many of them. "Wow that's weird. Look at all those cities. I wonder why there are no signals. They certainly don't look primitive." Xev said out loud hoping for some sort of response from either Stanley or 790. They were quiet. The cities had many large buildings that interlocked with each other. Architecture unlike any they'd ever seen. It looked so intricate yet so simple as well. As they got closer to one city in particular they saw that there were streets hidden beneath glass running through it and that the overall color was dull gray and black, but not in a way that was intended. It seemed as if the cities had been very colorful once before but had become lifeless over the centuries due to neglect or possibly no inhabitants. As they approached the city even closer they decided to land. "Oh no Xev you're not actually thinking about landing... are you?" Stanley said squeamishly. "Uh yea we didn't come down here just to observe. We should explore while we're here and besides you know how curious I am" "yea I do and it often gets us into trouble" Stan said. Xev started looking at the air "790 what is the atmosphere like is it ok for us?' "I can't really tell what it's made up of but it definitely has a somewhat benign character to it. It should be ok but I'm not 100% sure" "well if he's not sure I suggest we wear our suits just in case" "yea I'm with you there" Stan responded.
    They landed and they stepped out onto an open platform on top of one of the buildings. "This city is kind of freaking me out Xev, I mean look at how it's built. How is it even staying up? " The buildings were not all straight up and down, some were spiraled and some were pyramid shaped and some even seemed to float, while others defied all the laws of physics. "Well Stan if we want to find out we need to explore" "ok but I don't like this"
    They found an opening into a small garage like room which for some odd reason was wide open. They saw a door, which was at the end of the room and since it seemed safe enough they decided to try to open it. It was unlocked so they went through it. As they descended in a normal looking staircase which crisscrossed back and forth at least a hundred times they started feeling in their bodies a peculiar shift more and more as they got lower. Xev didn't feel like she was floating necessarily but it almost seemed as if gravity was lessening. Not only that but everything started to seem more and more like a dream. "Stan, are you feeling this too?" "Yes Xev and it's really starting to freak me out"
    Finally they came to another door, which also was unlocked and easy to open despite the appearance of not having been open for millennia. Once through it they entered into a very large glass dome, which seemed to go on for a long time and inside it was a long corridor, which had floors that seemed to be made out of solid gold. The color to it was very dull though, almost as if it had been tarnished and covered over with some sort of sooty lead. So they figured it couldn't be Gold since Gold does not tarnish and cannot be made to look like Gold and Lead at the same time. But it certainly had the feeling of Gold and also had an ethereal quality to it.
    "Wow these people must have been rich if they were able to make their city streets out of Gold" Stan said greedily  "yea but how could this be Gold. Look at it! "Yea I hear you Xev, but whatever it is, it is expensive." Xev bent down to touch it. It seemed to glimmer and become less dull as her fingers ran over it's smooth exterior. "Strange" she said out loud. They continued walking on what seemed like an endless street because no matter how far they walked they did not seem to get any closer to the other side. So suddenly she had an incredibly bizarre idea and she said out loud "I wish we were there already" referring to the other side of the long open corridor. And sure enough suddenly they were coming upon an underground, which seemed to contain homes lined up like shops all being bathed in a golden light. “Well that was weird" Stan said, unsettled.    
    The home/shops all looked the same and they all had windows which they could not see through, but not because they were dirty but almost as if they were windows into empty space. This of course added to the already eerie feeling that they had. Stan looked at 790 who was in Xev's arms "You're being awfully quiet 790" "Yes that's because I’ve been scanning constantly to try to find some sort of sign of something but the readings that I'm getting, they are so bizarre. I cannot decipher them at all" "Well are you finding anything" Stan asked, "Yes I'm finding a lot of things, actually too much for even my amazingly large and well equipped processor. But it's all scrambled with some weird code. It's unlike anything I’ve ever seen before" "Do you think you can crack it" Xev said while looking down at him like he was a precious little pet. "I don't know Xev. I will do my best but this is a very strange place" "Oh that's just great" Stanley complained.
    Xev knocked on one of the doors "Xev what are you doing?" Stan said clearly angry with Xev "c'mon Stan I doubt anyone is going to answer" and no one did. They continued walking and Xev knocked on another door. 'Would you stop it Xev. I don't want some crazed lunatic coming out and eating us or doing weird things to us." Well don't worry it's the same thing no response" Xev thought about the weird energies that had happened before when she, 790 and Stan all had had a strong desire for something to happen and then it did. She did not feel too confident about it working but she held an intention and said aloud
 "I wish someone would answer" and she knocked upon another door and suddenly the windows became see-through and she could see inside.
    There were shelves of bottles with what looked like different colored sands, liquids and herbs among many other things, which she could not identify. There were several very long plant vines running through the entire room with beautiful flowers blooming on them. The color of the flowers had the same dullness, where color had once been look to them as the whole city and the gold streets did. But before she could look any further a strange light ran over the door and it seemed to uncover yet another door behind it, which had much more life to it and then it opened.  790's eyes lit up as he gasped. Stanley looked scared which was no surprise. And Xev looked excited. What was behind the door was not all that scary, just a normal looking woman dressed in an apron, a dress, and a hat, all of white and blue gray. But upon a closer look the eyes of this woman were what grabbed the attention of the crew of the Lexx. They were glowing silvery blue as if the moon and the sky had merged to become one incredible celestial colored phenomenon. "Hi" Xev said being very friendly. The woman continued to stare at Xev with those peaceful yet haunting eyes. "Hi I don't mean to disturb you but we were traveling and we found your planet and we... " But before Xev could finish speaking, the woman came closer and stared at Xev in such a way that frightened her to the core. And as she stared she finally spoke  "We have been waiting for you" They were silent. She repeated" We have been waiting for you" and then one by one she looked at each individual of the crew of the Lexx. "Xev.... Stanley.... Josie " 790 looked at the woman with the same face he had when he first saw Xev after she had been killed as Zev and came back with Lyekka's help so long ago and then asked the woman with a deep curiosity "Josie?" "Yes Josie that was who your brain cube came from 790" "A woman I knew it, I knew it!" 790 seemed so happy. Xev was awash with anxious curiousity "How do you know who we are and even more how do you know this about 790" "We know a lot about you, and your other crew member Kai" "Kai, what about Kai? Kai is dead... I mean for real dead" "Yes but you above anyone should know that that is not the end especially for a person like him." The woman paused for a moment and then continued, " You have been called here to help us"  "help you, called here?" Xev seemed very confused " yes Xev the people of this planet have been under a spell for as long as we can remember. And it is a spell that only you can break" "what? I am very confused, who are you, what is this place?" Xev asked very nervous about what was going to be said next "The brothers will tell you all about it. Come with me" They finally entered the home after standing there for several minutes and in a quick flash everything changed under the same light that changed the door before. And with the unveiling there standing before the crew of the Lexx were two beautiful men dressed in what appeared to be royalty and warrior type clothing. Glowing silver, gold, ruby, emerald, and blue the clothes seemed to be made of a material that seemed to surpass even the beauty and excellence of the Brunnen-G outfit. Their eyes too were the same glowing color as the woman they had just met, who now seemed to have vanished. One of them approached Xev and she was amazed to see that he did not walk but almost seemed to float. He spoke and the sound of his voice was so enchanting that she lost herself in his eyes. He placed his hand on her shoulder and before she knew it she was moving very quickly through a wormhole in space and all around her were what appeared to be visions of the memories of a people?  There were people speaking of great stories, building fantastic monuments and singing songs of a grand nature. There were so many memories but the light grew darker and where she finally ended up was floating over the same city she was just in but only now it was as vivid as she felt that it had once been. The man whom she had just met who had touched her inside of the home of the strange woman on the strange planet was there too. It was so colorful and beautiful that Xev couldn't contain herself. She started crying. "Where are we?" she asked him "Do not worry Xev, this is a memory. We are still in the same home that you found me in but our minds are on a journey. I am taking you through the events that brought Dalinor from this once vibrant land of beauty and promise to what it is today. Do not be afraid. You are under my protection now. And nothing can destroy me. I am indestructible." "Indestructible. Do you mean... like Kai?" "No Xev, I am of a different breed than your beloved Kai, but I will explain that to you later... come with me... listen and watch as I take you back through time...”
    “Dalinor began long ago. It was during the beginning of time and it was as if it had always been there. Suddenly the planet was there and upon it were many beings made of pure light. They began to build the cities and multiply. Over time as they explored the stars they found that they possessed a special characteristic that was as of yet fairly rare in the universe. This characteristic is what you refer to as Magic. It is what allows us to reshape reality as we see fit. It is what enables us to build the structures you saw that defy the laws of physics. But as all things it is not perfect. It could not prevent the corruption of our Prince. In fact it was largely what contributed to him falling into shadow. And I don't refer to the typical shadow that exists in the common struggle of light and dark. It could almost be called the shadow of the shadow. It is the evil beyond evil that just wants to destroy everything and can never be reasoned with. It wants to cause the most unimaginable suffering to all that exists. But this force, which we did not understand for some time did not come out of nowhere. Let me tell you the events that unfolded it's making.
     Dalinor was flourishing. The population was a steady and healthy number. We lived in harmony with the land. Water flowed everywhere. The cities were pure and radiant much like the beings who inhabited it. The cities are our externalization of what exists within us. We manifest our dreams into reality. Here life is a dream, which is why there are no laws. We can fly. We can will things into existence and out of existence. We do not need to eat. We do not need to sleep. And we never die. Anything that can harm us, alien life that has bad intentions, or asteroids or even the shifting of the galaxies cannot make it past the point where we are first visible. You may have noticed but there is no Sun. our world is alight with our energies. We create it and maintain it with our minds. And we existed this way for a long time.
    But then something shifted. It came out of nowhere and just as in the beginning we weren't and then we were, thus too did this force arrive swiftly and bring the events that reshaped our world. It affected all of us. We then learned of things we never knew among us before. The power struggle being the most prominent and the worst of it all. The once vivid colors of our cities began fading as if they were being washed away. People began fighting and as time continued to pass we became more and more divided. For the first time we were living in more of a family structure where as before we were all one. Now there were different levels of the society. There were those who were allowed less and less to create and those who ruled the others. And most tragically for the first time we began disappearing. Not dying, just disappearing. As before we suddenly were now we suddenly weren’t. Our numbers continued to dwindle and by then the color of our cities had but almost vanished. The energy grid that ran through the streets holding everything together became duller and duller because no one was interacting with it anymore. And it was then that the ruler of Dalinor, our Prince, began to show signs of being the source of all this tragedy.
    Yes in the days of old we had no Prince, we were all one, but when the dividing began it did not take long for those who claimed superiority to claim ownership of just about everything. And it was my family who took the top, my two brothers and me. One of whom you've seen and the other is the Prince.
    And now I'm sure you are wondering what you have to do with all of this. Xev it is your child that will be able to take away the poison from our Prince." Xev looked incredibly shocked "my child, but I’m not preg...nant"
 "Yes Xev you are. And it is a very special pregnancy. When you were on Earth, the living Kai you found, you made love with him even though you don't remember. And you became with child. And this is not just any child. It is the child of a cluster lizard woman and the last of one of the greatest species to ever exist, the Brunnen-G. Even though the living Kai on Earth was just a human from that world and not the Brunnen-G warrior whom you love, because of the time you spent with the Brunnen-G Kai and your special connection to him in the latter part of his days, it allowed for a child to be conceived. On top of that my brother and I called upon the life-force of our people to be a part of this child. He will not be able to dream like we used to be able to or even like we do now but he carries the cure to the poison that has destroyed Dalinor.  "What is this energy?" Xev asked. "There are no words for it but it is the opposite of the shadow of the shadow, it is the light of the light, the highest of energies, that which runs through every benevolent thing in existence. It is the thread that connects us all. And it is manifest in him” "You say him and you say he 'is' like he already exists" "Yes Xev like I said this is a very special pregnancy. This child was not conceived in the typical way of being the result of you making love with the Earth Kai. In fact the nature of your lovemaking that happened is far from normal. You blacked out and during this blackout all the energies combined in a swirl of life-force and impregnated you. During this moment was when the higher part of Brunnen-G Kai met with the life-force of the people of Dalinor and it was also the moment you ate the Earth Kai. I know this is a lot for you to handle right now. But you are very strong and you are quite possibly the most important person to exist ever in the history of the two universes. That is until your child is born. Then he will be the greatest force to ever be able to cure our Prince. Another very important thing to know is your baby will not grow in you like a normal child does, although he is with you every second of every day. He also will not come out of your body as a normal child does. He will manifest as pure light that will take on the form of a human to interact with you just as I am doing now. And even though I call it he it could just as well be called she because it is of the constitution that surpasses the separation of male and female. But because Kai is such an integral part of this child it makes more sense from your point of understanding to call it a he"   
    There was dead silence. Xev couldn't even hear the sound of her heartbeat or her breathing and she had no idea how to feel about what she had just been told. She watched the city below as time swept over it and the colors faded and the people disappeared and just when she felt she couldn't take it anymore the man said to her "We will return now" So she braced herself for going through the wormhole again but in a quick flash she was right back to the first second after the man touched her.         
    "Xev what happened there. You and the man became so bright I could barely see you and only a few seconds later the light vanished and here you are" Stan said to Xev very anxious, concerned and somewhat frightened to know what had just happened to her. The man took his hand off of Xev's shoulder and she turned towards Stanley, looked down to the floor and started crying. Stan just looked at her and after a few moments Xev looked up directly into Stan's eyes, "Stanley......... I'm Pregnant..."

Very good so far. Xev is pregnant! That's bound to give old Stan a shock.

Here are chapters 3&4 as well. I wrote chapter 5 this afternoon and will probably write 6 tonight. I will edit them tomorrow and post them.


Chapter 3 Rain and Thunder

Xev, Stanley, 790 and the two strange brothers all began to make their way deeper and deeper into the city. Passing by dozens of the houses, which had the empty space windows. Xev constantly wondered what could be lying on the other side of the doors. How many people were left on this planet? Where was the third brother, the poisoned Prince, who was possessed by a very dark force? Before Xev could explore further into this particular chain of thoughts she was having, the brother who took her on the journey spoke to her, "There are hundreds of cities on Dalinor and they all have very deep undergrounds. We are approaching the descent-way, which takes us straight to the bottom where my brother and I have our hideout. We must hide from the storms, which pass every thirty-six hours." Stanley decided to jump in on the conversation since he was getting tired of holding 790 and having all his focus be on how long it would be until 790 would start asking about Kai and whether these brothers knew how to bring him back, "So, how bad are these storms" The brother stopped walking and turned and looked at Stanley, "The wind moves very fast over the lands and it carries within it a disruptive energetic anomaly which temporarily suspends our ability to create. The temperature of this particular city drops several thousand degrees and sometimes buildings disappear into thin air. There is an electrical rain, which if you were struck by, would put you into a nightmarish comatose for the rest of eternity. "Stanley's jaw dropped and he just stood still while the others continued to walk. After about a minute, 790 made a sound of disapproval, "Security guard, are we going to follow them or just stay here and watch the scenery" 790 spoke through gritted teeth. It took a few more moments and finally Stan started walking quickly to catch up.
Xev continued to pay close attention to the scenery. There began to be other shapes of houses entering into the mix and before long there were domes and spires. On some of the buildings there was color too. One in particular caught her attention and then others started to as well. There was something so familiar about them. It reminded her of something she might see on Brunnis 2 even though she'd never been there. She had been to Kai's ancestral home planet Brunnis, but she imagined that because of the evolution that the Brunnen-G must have gone through when they entered into the Light Universe their cities on the new planet must have been far more extraordinary then what she witnessed on Brunnis. And because of that they probably began to design architecture, which looked like the incredible dream inspired purple and rose spires she started seeing. After a short while longer the road started to widen and the ceilings started to open up. She got the feeling that they were descending even though it was not clear that was what was happening.
The brother who she hadn't heard speak yet began chanting. She had a hard time understanding even the sounds he was making. He was clearly singing in a language which she assumed was theirs but it resembled nothing like she'd ever heard. The syllables had a strange resonance to them. It was almost as if he was modifying his voice with some type of electrical energy. It enlivened the whole long stretch of the walkway they were on from ceiling to floor and the brightness of everything began intensifying. All of the sudden there was no mistaking that they were descending and quick. The brother who was chanting began to speak, " We must chant our mantra to open up the descent-way. We are then brought thousands of feet below the surface to our twin city, which is underground. 90%of the inhabitants of this city live down there. The people who live up in the homes we passed a while ago, like the person you saw in the home you were in before, have a hard time surviving very long. They are subject to the energy, which discreates entire buildings during the storms. There are protective shields around everything. But every time the storms come our planet loses a little bit of its luster. As we have no sun the day is kept constant by the power of our minds. Because the storms are so threatening it weakens all of us every time they hit, which is every day.” “Well, lucky timing for our landing then” Xev chimed in. He continued, “It won't be before too long that our light will go away forever. The only way that it can be stopped is if our Prince, our brother (he glances at the other brother) is cured. Then the light will stop weakening us and we can repair the cities. Eventually we would also be able to re-manifest those that were taken by the nothingness." The other brother picked up the explanation " We all have similar strength in this city. The other cities also have equal weight in terms of holding everything together on our planet. Even though at the end of the time before we had to build our underground twin cities, our other brother who became Prince and I and my brother next to me were at the top of the power struggle, we never chose to dominate the others like our brother the Prince did. He took to focusing his mind on calling up the storms in the first place."
Xev looked at the brother who took her on the journey, " Where is your other brother, the Prince" "He vanished sometime ago. It is only I, Rain, and my brother Thunder, who remain in charge of the people of Dalinor. They still look up to us as the leaders even though we would like for no social ladder to exist again. They expect us to fix the problem. Since it was the three of us who gravitated towards each other and began to see ourselves as brothers and eventually took to the top of the power struggle. Xev came awash with curiosity so she had to ask, " Can you and your brother call up storms too... your names are Rain and Thunder, no? So does that mean you..." "Yes Xev I can merge with water in the form of Rain and control a rainstorm to an extent and my brother Thunder is a master of electrical energies. But we don't choose to use our powers, because there is no reason to. The storms above, which threaten our existence, are persistent and our power cannot stop them. We have no other place to use them... If ever are other brother returned and he chose to challenge us we would be able to hold him off. There was one other time when this occurred. It is what caused the storms above to become so fierce. This is another reason why we choose to not use our power anymore." Thunder took over the story "Before the dark nothingness infected us, the magic that the people wielded brought a high equilibrium to everything. Every time we or any of the other people of Dalinor would focus our intent, things would beam into brightness. Now anytime any of us are host to a magical wish, even flying, it further upset things." Rain stopped walking and turned to Xev. He looked at her with an indebtedness that she had a hard time accepting. It too caught the attention of Stanley and even 790. Thunder and Rain bowed their heads and they both said in unison " We are eternally grateful to you Xev"
Within a few seconds of them bowing their heads suddenly everything around them started shifting in the same light which revealed the rooms behind the windows of the houses and also which brought the two brothers into view inside the house. Colors started filling in all around them. Other people started appearing from very close to them to as far as the eye could see and beyond. Golden domes and liquid silver spires dotted the surround and vivid green plant life began to sweep through below their feet and above their heads. The air filled with the sweet smell of incense which reminded Xev of a really good desert which she tasted at Boomtown on the Planet Water. Stanley looked in awe of what was happening around them. One of the appearing figures approached him. It was a petit woman of extraordinary beauty. Xev observed her magnificence and then began to look at the other people around them. All of them were extremely good looking. And they all were smiling. One by one they came up to her within a few feet and said "Welcome and thank you Xev of B3k" After what seemed like at least a hundred of the people came up and greeted her, Rain came up and began speaking to her in a warm, friendly tone, "Xev you were born on B3K and in a sense you were reborn when you were transformed into a love slave and infused with traits of a cluster lizard on the capital of the 20,000 planets. I hope that as you go through the process of your pregnancy and after your child is born you will consider Dalinor your new home. And that you will no longer be known as Xev of B3K but Xev of Dalinor. " He turned to Stanley and smiled at him "Stanley you too are important, your friendship to Xev played a valuable role in the shaping of her personality. Your adventures on the Lexx, of facing his Divine Shadow, Mantrid, the Prince of Fire and even the asteroidship, which housed the plant beings you called Lyekka, was key in making the strong, brave woman who is ready to meet an even greater challenge than all of them combined. " He paused for a moment and then bowed his head at Stanley, "Thank you Stanley"
"What about me?" exclaimed 790. Rain looked slightly up from his bowed head and glanced at 790 who was in Stanley's arms. "You 790 or Josie as you may liked to be called from now on, you also helped Xev and Stanley navigate their way through the stars. Your superior intelligence allowed them to find this planet as well as many other things that could not have been possible without you" "Did you hear that security guard he said I have superior intelligence" 790 paused for a moment then raised his eyes "Speaking of superior intelligence, I was wondering if you had the power to... " Stanley cut him off before he could finish his sentence by turning around walking quickly a few steps away from Rain and placing 790 on the ground. "Tweedle what are you doing I was about to ask him about my Kai" "790 don't spring that on them yet" "Why not. There's no time like the present" "Yea but we are just getting to be comfortable here why ruin it by asking for something so big. " "You heard them they are grateful to Xev, for some reason I am not sure about, so that means they would be willing to help us" "I just don't think this is the right time to be asking them about Kai" "Well I don't care pick me up and bring me back over to Rain" "No" "Yes. And I'm not going to ask twice" Stanley walked away. "Tweedle youuuuuuu" 790 held his irritated scream of the word you for a few moments and then stopped when he realized Stan was out of range of hearing.
Thunder approached Xev and placed his hand on her shoulder. Xev was a little startled because she half expected that she was about to go on another "journey" but realized very quickly that he just wanted to talk to her. "Xev we have arranged for you to stay in one of our finest domes in the entire city. There will be any type of food you could ever want brought to you by man servants of exceptional physical shapes." Xev blushed at the thought of possibly indulging in what a love slave is designed to do. Rain continued where Thunder left off " you will have several days to yourself. We will bring Stanley and 790 to another part of the city and take very good care of them as well. You just relax and enjoy yourself. You need to be well rested for what's to come. " Two very attractive men slightly taller than Xev, wearing no shirts, which revealed thick strong muscles, who also were tan and had dark features, which Xev liked came up to her and extended their arms as if to escort her. She gladly accepted and began to walk away with them. She turned back and smiled at Stan who smiled back. She thought to herself I'm going to be as indulgent as I can be for the next few days. Rain called out to her just before she was out of hearing range " if you need anything all you need to do is think to yourself about how you wish you had the thing you are thinking about and it will be brought to you" Stanley looked surprised "um… Rain is it… I thought you weren't supposed to use magic anymore because it made your planet weaker" "We are making an exception for Xev... She is very special and deserves anything she desires for the next few days. " Stanley continued "And after that...?" Rain became focused intently into the distant view of where Xev disappeared off into. After a few moments he spoke but very softly and very slowly
"Then we travel" "Travel to where?" asked Stanley
"To find the Noah"


CHAPTER 4 on board the Noah

The sound of the propulsion of the Noah was heavy in space as it passed far away from where Earth had once been. It didn't take long before Prince started bossing Priest around to look for this and look for that on the ship. "Now I told you. I want you to find out what sort of time limit we have on this ship. Is it 500 years, 100 years, or maybe even just 50? Whatever it is I want to know. And see to it that you understand anything else that may be important to navigating through space for us to find new planets to plunder and destroy." Prince spoke in his usual commanding and confidant tone as if nothing else mattered but the pleasures he receives from causing pain and suffering to others.
Bunny walked around the ship as well talking to all the young girls Dr Longbore had chosen to be on board. "So what's your name" Bunny said to one of them in her typical ditsy sort of way. "Melinda" "Oh hi Melinda" "Hi' "How do you like being on board a spaceship" "It’s good I suppose" "Do you miss Earth" "No not really" "who else do you know here" Bunny said as she stepped a little closer to the girl. Melinda was a young woman of 18 or 19 years old. She was tall and skinny, had brown hair and blue eyes. She had on a red dress with black stripes and looked like a typical schoolgirl from America. Bunny began to become a little more flirtatious with Melinda and started asking her questions about her desires. Melinda seemed a little turned off and as quickly as she could ended the conversation and walked away. Bunny seemed disappointed but quickly got over it and walked over to another girl.
Meanwhile Prince was looking out a window into space. They had been traveling for a few days now and they had not seen any planet since they left the solar system, which used to house Earth. He contemplated all the madness and mayhem he would start causing all over the universe now that he had a ship to travel in. His fantasies quickly turned into full-fledged dreams and before he could get to the best parts Priest ran up and rudely interrupted him. "President Priest or I suppose it's just Priest now since Earth is gone and you technically are no longer President of anything, Did you find out anything useful or did you just interrupt my daydreaming to whine about something else" Ever since they left Earth, Priest had been complaining that there was no TV to watch cartoons. This quickly became old and Prince threatened to throw him out into deep space if he didn't shut his mouth. "No my Prince I did not find out anything useful but I did find a place where food is" "Well isn't that great. What use is that to me? " "I'm sorry my Prince I thought you'd be happy to know that after a few days I finally found where they keep the food " "No I am not happy that you found where they keep the food because I don't need to eat" "Oh... Well Ok then I’ll just go and find Bunny and eat some food myself" "Yes you go do that" Prince said obviously completely annoyed with Priest. As he walked away Prince whispered to himself "What a fool"
A young woman walked up to Prince. She was slightly older and had long blonde hair. She wore jeans and a t-shirt which said, "I come in peace" Prince looked at the t-shirt with distaste. He thought to himself 'what fun is peace' She spoke to him with a shy and nervous voice while she twirled her hair and chewed gum "excuse me" "yeeeeees" Prince said hoping that his disinterest would signal to the young woman to leave him alone. She did not pick up on his signals and continued to talk with her head slightly down blushing. "Are you famous?" "Famous. What do you mean? " She giggled, "Like, did you play in a band on Earth. I think I’ve seen you on MTV before" "No that wasn't me,” He said with annoyance hoping she would finally go away. "Oh, that must have been someone else. Ok. See ya" She turned and walked away. "Well, ok then" He said glad to be rid of her so he could get back to his daydreaming about destroying planets.
It wasn't but ten seconds before Priest came running back towards him. "What is it now?" Prince said with impatience. "My Prince I cannot find Bunny anywhere have you seen her" "No Priest I haven't." Priest stood there dumbfounded and confused. Prince continued, " It's a big ship. She could be anywhere" "Yes, yes my Prince. It is a big ship. She could be anywhere" Priest continued to stare at Prince but didn't say anything. Finally Prince made a face at Priest and he walked away head down muttering to himself, frustrated that he didn't know where Bunny was.
In the meantime Bunny had found herself sitting on a comfortable couch in a lounge type room between two gorgeous young women. She was flirting heavily with the both of them. " Ok, so do you guys think it's ok to blow up planets" One of them had very tan skin, was tall and smelled of strawberries. The other was Asian and short and skinny and had a permanent smile on her face. The tan one answered first, "I don't think it's ok to blow up planets but I suppose if there was some interplanetary war and one side was Evil and blowing them up meant saving billion of others from dying then it'd be ok" Bunny turned to the Asian girl. She just kept smiling. Bunny loved the fact that there were so many females on this ship. Ever since her encounter with Xev when she had to give up the key, she had been very curious about what it would be like to be with women in bed again. She placed her arm within the tan woman's arm and smiled real big and then turned and looked at the Asian girl real quick. She looked as if she wanted to say something but took about ten seconds to let it come through.
"Let's have sex!" She blurted out as she turned to face the tan woman again. The tan woman freed her arm from Bunny's embrace and got up and walked away. Bunny looked disappointed when the tan woman got up then she turned and faced the Asian girl who continued to keep on smiling without saying anything. After about a minute Bunny made a face and said 'oooook' as she got up and continued to talk to other women.
Just then Priest came running in sweating and out of breath. "Oh my bunny snookems tootle tail I’ve been looking everywhere for you” Bunny looked uninterested in Priest "I've been talking to all these women on board the ship" "Oh.. um... ok..." He paused for a second more to catch his breath and then asked her if she wanted to join him to eat, "They have everything, pizza, french fries, pancakes, apples, cherry pie, beer, potato chips, and a lot more. I think it's a very stocked ship" "Well that's good. But right now I’m interested in eating other things" She said with a tone that indicated she was thinking about sex with women. "What do you mean pookie poo?" "I mean I’m interested in doing other things, doing other things" She said again hoping that he didn't pick up on what she meant. He didn't. "Oh ok Bunny well I’ll go eat by myself,” he said while pouting his lips and making a face that he hoped would change her mind. Bunny made a few noises to herself indicating that she was torn between seeking out sex with women or pleasing her Priest whom she still loved very much. "Oh... Alright” she finally said. Priest started kissing Bunny on the cheek, on the forehead, on the back of the head, on the neck over and over again. Finally Bunny just gave him a quick kiss on the lips so he would stop.
Suddenly there was a droning beeping sound repeating all over the ship. Everyone looked confused. Prince turned around from his staring into space through a window and looked for Priest hoping he'd found something out by now. Priest was nowhere in sight so he began walking to seek out the source of the noise. He found himself inside a control room, which seemed to house all sorts of interesting devices, which he could toy with. One was clearly a navigation screen, which had maps of the stars and their respective distances from the current location of the ship. Another had viewscreens to several corridors of the ship. He saw many different rooms filled with women chatting on about god knows what he thought to himself. Finally he found something, which excited him terribly, a missile launching system. He was happy cause now when they finally found a planet to mistreat and get their fill on he could launch nuclear missiles at it and destroy it. 'Ah yes' he said out loud more content now that he'd found what he had sent Priest to look for before.
The beeping finally stopped and nobody really cared enough to figure out what caused it. It would not be until sometime later when this beeping would continue and start happening at shorter and shorter intervals that the crew of the Noah would realize how important it actually was.
Drifting in space was not what he would most enjoy but Priest was happy to have his future open he thought to himself while he gobbled up some fried chicken and ice cream. Bunny sat and nibbled on a candy bar. There were six other girls in the food room. They all were talking about boys back on Earth. Bunny got up and sat next to them. "Hello" she said. 'Hello' responded one of the girls ' I'm Bunny I was the first lady of the United States of America back on Earth" "oh yea I remember you' said another of the girls "yea I'm bunny and I like to have sex with women" Priest overheard her say this and momentarily stopped eating contemplating whether this was a good thing or a bad thing. Bunny had a big smile on her face. She was also blushing and clearly wanted to get down and dirty with all the girls right then and there. She had forgotten Priest was even in the room. He quickly finished his fried chicken, wiped his mouth with his hand and got up and walked over to her. He sat down across from her and next to one of the young girls. He looked at one of the girls then looked at Bunny "You know cupcake if you like having sex with women perhaps we can have sex together with some of the women on this ship" Bunny seemed engrossed in the face of one of the girls and momentarily didn't hear him. Then she snapped out of it and said, "What honey?" "I said if you like to have sex with women maybe we could find a woman we both like and have sex together with her. You know add someone to the mix, so to speak" "yea' she said just to placate him. She wasn't all that interested. She was more interested in having sex with as many women as possible right now and without hesitation. Suddenly Prince was heard over a loudspeaker all across the ship.
"Crew of the Noah. I'm here to tell you that I've located a navigating system and I’m taking us to the nearest star that has habitable planets. We should be there within a few weeks." He paused for a second then continued, " Now I know it would be much better if we could get there quicker but until I find something else on this ship which allows us to do that this will be the scheduled destination for now. And Priest?" "Yes my Prince" Priest called out to the air even though Prince could not hear him "I want you to meet me on the deck in one hour, ok?" "Ok My Prince One hour" "Cheery Bye"
The Noah continued to sail through space on its way to its new destination. Prince could not wait to arrive so he could begin doing what he does best, torture, destruction and death. Meanwhile Priest and Bunny rested in a room they claimed for their own while dozens of women of all ages ranging from 17- 36 wandered about the Noah searching for some form of a new home.
Thousands of light-years away the crew of the Lexx were being pampered on the planet Dalinor. And it would not be before too long that the world of the Noah and the world of the Lexx would cross and an exciting and terrifying new adventure would begin.

thank you so much for reading. It's been really fun writing this. And i find i can't stop. Last night i just kept writing and writing. And i can see and hear our favorite characters so clearly. For example 790 and Stan were going at it in a chapter i was writing last night and it was so funny I actually was laughing as i was watching them do this as the words were coming to the page. I will have more chapters up by tomorrow.
thanks again

actually i just read through chapter 5-7 which I wrote last night and edited it so i will post them.

CHAPTER 5 the Elixirs of Dalinor

Stanley stood in the center of the city contemplating why the Dalinorean brothers wanted to travel to find the Noah. He quickly forgot all about that when out of nowhere several exquisitely beautiful women appeared. They extended their arms the same way the men did to Xev when they escorted her off. He made a similar smile to one he'd make on the Selies Pleasure Transport as he did a little dance, whilst walking over to them. They began walking arm and arm and He was very happy. One of them also grabbed 790 out of Stanley's hands so Stanley was free to use both of his arms. They began to walk towards what seemed like a mansion on top of a hill. One of the women began speaking, " Welcome to Dalinor's twin underground city. We hope the next few days will be as relaxing and pleasurable as possible for you." She had bluish-silvery hair down to her shoulders and her eyes were a deep black. She was slightly shorter than Stan and she was skinny. Stanley looked down at her breasts and started to get ideas, which made him smile more. Another women began talking, "We are going to be staying with you in that mansion over there at the top of the hill"
Stanley looked over at the mansion. It was huge and very colorful. It was almost as if the colors of the paint on the house were swirling around each other in a beam of light. This strongly captivated Stan's attention.
790 was being stimulated electrically by the hands of the woman who was holding him. It was a pleasure unlike he'd ever felt before. It was close to what he felt when his head had been on top of a moth breeders body. Even though he had no body and no equipment to feel pleasure with now, this was still far better. He didn't say anything only made moans and sighs of approval. As they got closer to the mansion they began feeling very dreamy, almost floating as they approached the grand entrance gate before them. One of the women began speaking again, " The three of us will be your main servers for the next few days. But if you need anything else or anyone else just ask us." Stanley turned his head towards the women speaking and asked her if he could just think about it and it would appear. "No Stanley Tweedle that is a gift reserved only for Xev. But anything you could possibly dream up whether it is women, entertainment, food, drink or even a massage. Just ask"
They were now standing at the gate. It dissolved into thin air and they walked through. All of a sudden, the fields leading up to the house, which were dark when they first walked towards them, became aglow in hundreds of plants covered in fruit and flowers. There were gardens everywhere. It reminded Stanley of Garden on the planet Water. It smelled of raspberries, lavender, chocolate, and other things unlike Stanley had ever smelled before. He was in a warm embrace of bliss. They walked up 7 steps and were standing in front of a large door, about 25 feet tall. It was made out of solid Silver, which had a bluish tint to it. There were intricate designs etched into it, and they stuck out all over like memories in a dance. They were sculptures of different types of beings awash in writing and scenes of various cities.
The door opened slowly and they were hit with an aroma that was very pleasing. Even though 790 couldn't smell it he was able to detect something from the scent as well, and he made an Ahhh sound. They walked into the mansion, and like most other things on Dalinor, when they first walked in, everything was dark. They felt as if they were floating in space and there was no sign of anything. Within seconds the same revealing light like they had seen washed over everything and what was revealed was of the most spectacular scene Stanley had ever laid eyes on. There were spiraling staircases colored in deep purples, and deep blues. There were comfortable looking chairs and couches all over the bottom floor. There were doors that he felt lead to what was a kitchen and dining room. And he looked directly at one specific door, which intrigued him very much, and one of the women began speaking, " That door leads to a large pool and pleasure station." "What's a pleasure station? " Stanley asked in a sexy voice. "It is whatever you want it to be Stanley Tweedle" "Hmmm. I can think of some things I'd want it to be."
The woman holding 790 began walking up one of the staircases and with a flash she and 790 disappeared. Stanley barely noticed. But after a moment he asked where 790 had gone to. One of the women answered him, "790 and our server Ika have gone to a pleasure station where anything can be dreamt up" "Oh. Well good for him." He started caressing one of the woman's back and shoulders. It was very soft under his hand and he was tempted to squeeze her breasts but he thought he'd better take it slow, as to not offend them and get himself in trouble. She looked up at him and gave him a look that he instantly recognized as sexual. He responded to it by making a kiss with his lips. "I think it's time for Stan the Man to visit his pleasure station." "Ok Stanley Tweedle. Right this way" She and the other woman led him through the doors.
On the other side he found himself alone in a room, which looked like a study. It was very plain and had only a small brown desk with a chair, and rows of books on big shelves. There were no windows and no color. Even the bindings of the book were all a faded grayish-white. Suddenly a voice could be clearly heard but its direction was unclear. "Stanley H Tweedle, Captain of the Lexx. What do you wish?" "Oh. Well I..." "Anything you can desire we can offer" "Great why don't we start with a different room than this small study." "What type of room do you wish for?" "Well for starters, make it a bigger room with more color." The room started shifting, "What else do you want?" "Hmmm. I suppose it'd be nice to have some of those women back." "What kind of woman do you wish for?" "Well... I can have any type of woman?" He asked surprised and grateful for such an offer. "Yes Stanley Tweedle, any woman you wish"
Her voice was very soft and very attractive to Stanley. "I wish for two, no make that three, no make that eight, no six, ok, wait, five women. One a blonde, tall, medium breasts with strong thighs and pouty lips and another, a brunette with dark eyes and big breasts and a big butt that I can squeeze and please and tease and..." The room started completing its shape. It was at least 20 times larger than the study was. It had an orange and purple hue to it. It smelled of roses. And had all sorts of flower petals scattered everywhere. It contained what looked like a pool bar off in the distance.
Stanley just watched it all unfold and he realized that some things, which he didn’t speak aloud, were manifesting. He started thinking about an attractive redhead coming up to kiss him but it did not appear so he began to speak again "Ok where was I. A blonde, a brunette. Give me a redhead, no two, with big breasts and pouty lips." Then he stopped for a second and went deep in thought. He thought to himself ‘Which one single woman did he want most?’ And that was Lyekka. " And for my last woman, make her someone that looks like Lyekka." "I'm sorry Stanley Tweedle we cannot take your final request as it would take too much magic to create." "Oh, ok" Stanley was mildly disappointed but he decided to just settle on the four women he already asked for. "Ok Just the four then, the blonde, the brunette, and the two redheads. " "Your wish is our joy"
The four women appeared and they were everything any man could hope for. He walked up to the brunette with big breasts and went right to touching them. He figured if he was allowed to have or do anything he could ask for, then this wouldn't be out of line. And he was right the woman just smiled as he fondled her. After a few minutes of squeezing each woman in turn, he signaled for them to walk over to the bar. The redheads got naked and jumped into the pool and swam over to the center where there seemed to be drinks and food. Stanley looked over but could not distinguish any particular bottle of drink or plate of food. "What would you like to eat and drink Stanley Tweedle?" Oh, well I...um... for starters I’ll take a triple cheeseburger with a chocolate milk shake. Make the milk shake really creamy. And give me a coconut with some maple syrup in it and some sliced bananas as well. Give me... hmmm... I'll take... you know what let's start with that." "Your wish is our joy,” The women said in unison. Stanley was very happy.
Meanwhile 790 was in a room floating being stimulated electrically like he was before. After a few moments he felt it was the time to finally ask about Kai, "Excuse me" "Yes" a voice responded. "I was wondering if you people can still wield enough magic to bring back the dead" "Who do you want to bring back?" "Well, who else, but my beloved Kai" "We're sorry, we cannot bring back the dead at this time. It would take too much energy and it would weaken us and upset the storms." "But there has to be a way." 790 was not happy with the response, "Were you ever able to bring back the dead?" 790 asked desperate to convince them to do this wish.
The voice didn't respond for a second but then came back, "Yes we could in the past long ago. But those days have been long forgotten and our situation does not allow for that much magic to be used at this time." "If the storms stopped could you then use magic?" 790 asked, "The storms will not stop." "What do you mean? There has to be a way to stop them? " The voice responded and this time with more intensity, "The only way to stop the storms is if our Prince is cured. And the only person who can cure the Prince is Xev's child" "Xev's child? How could the child of a loveslave cure such a poison if it can cause storms like those men were describing before?" "Xev's child is the most special being to come into existence since Kai" "Since Kai? Does Kai have something to do with Xev's child?" "Yes Kai is the father" "But how is that possible. Kai did not have the equipment to even have sex with Xev." "No he did not, but the Earth Kai did" "There was an Earth Kai" "Yes. And he was alive." "So the child is not from my dead man in black" "Yes it is all from him. It is a very special child who was born of our last magic ritual." The voice stopped and after a few moments 790 asked to hear more. "I'm sorry I cannot tell you more at this time." "Well, why not?" The voice repeated the same response. 790 paused for a second, let out a sigh and then spoke, "Well ok I guess you can just stimulate me like you were doing before, for now." "Your wish is our joy"
On the other side of the city Xev lounged on a large circular couch covered in animal fur. The fur was soft and smelled sweet. She rubbed her face against it while a strong man gave her a foot massage. Another man was feeding her grapes, which she devoured like the hungry love goddess she felt like right now. She felt a tingle below her waist and decided to ask for sex. "What kind of man would you like Xev?" "Wow I didn't even ask out loud" "Yes remember Xev, all you have to do is think about what you want and we will give it to you. She dreamed up several tall strong men and she made sure they were all well equipped. She also wanted them to appear holding giant silver pitchers of the best strawberry milk she would ever taste. In a flash, there standing before her were three tall, strong men, all of different skin colors, wearing nothing but a patch of tiger skin around their hips. One of them poured the milk from the silver pitcher into her mouth slowly. She drank thirstily as she started thinking about sex. Before she knew it they were undressed and she was more than ready to have fun with them.
The days passed and Stan, Xev and 790 enjoyed their days fully indulging in anything they asked for. Well almost anything. The Dalinoreans could not bring back Kai or manifest Lyekka, but they could please the crew of the Lexx, in most anyway they could possibly ask for, even 790.
After what seemed like one incredibly long day Rain came into Xev's dome while she was floating in a warm pool. "Xev, it is time." "Already?" She asked hoping that she'd have at least another day before having to do something important. "Yes. Xev we are going to travel in the Lexx to find the Noah." "The Noah? You mean Prince and President Priest and Bunny?" "Yes. But Prince is our only concern." "What do you want with him? He's evil. He can't help us." "Actually Xev he can. It was from the poison of my brother our Prince that the Prince you know was born." "Really?" "Yes. Prince has not been around since the beginning of time. He came after the evil first entered our world. In fact if it weren't for what happened here, there would be no evil in the entirety of the two universes." " Really?" Xev asked not believing that could be possible. "Yes. The Divine Shadow, the entire Insect Civilization, Mantrid and the Prince of Fire would never have become if we had been able to stop the evil here when it first infected us." "Wow... I just am having a hard time with that" She paused for a moment then continued, "So does that mean even things like me being forced to grow up in a box on B3K would have never happened? Because to me that is evil too?" "Yes Xev that type of living only came about because of the evil of the Divine Shadow, whose evil came from the Insects, whose evil traces all the back to Dalinor." "Wow. That is really incredible" "Yes. You would have grown up free Xev and no matter what you looked like you would have fit in where you were born."
Xev let this sink in for a minute and then Rain continued, "Ok Xev in one hour be ready to travel. First we will rendezvous with Stanley, 790, and my brother Thunder. Then we will walk through the city to my sister's chamber on the other side." "Your sister's chamber? What, is she different from you? She doesn't live in a house or something? " "No Xev our sister is the most powerful among us. She can use magic almost as strongly as my brother the Prince can. She commands all things of the winter. Ice, snow, wind, frost, cold and rain. She is as timeless as the beginning of all of existence and when you are in her presence you will feel more protected and comfortable then you've ever felt before." "Great. At least there's something to look forward to." "Yes. And with her we will travel in your moth up to the Lexx and find the Noah."
He started to walk away and Xev leaned back in the water and closed her eyes. She thought about what this sister might look like and then suddenly she was overcome with a calm peace. She found herself floating in a snowstorm. Everything was clear and white and she felt very serene. She heard singing. Women's voices. It sounded like an entire choir but she could not figure out which direction it was coming from. It sounded like it was all around her. It even felt like it was inside of her. She could feel something that she instantly recognized to be the source of all womanhood. The song she was hearing wasn't just any song. It was the sound of the Goddess. Her divine name. She allowed herself to get lost in its essence. And as she felt the loving embrace of this music she dreamed of another figure. She saw her son. He reminded her a lot of Kai but didn't have the same beehive hairdo nor the tattoo on his cheek. He was wearing a silverplated chest piece and a matching piece to cover him from his waist down to his knees. His eyes were like the brothers eyes. Glowing silvery blue. And he just smiled at her. She smiled back.

Chapter 6 SNOW

It was time and Xev had just drunk her last fill in the magnificent dome, which she had been housed in for her few days of rest. She also had one last meal since she wasn't sure when she'd get the chance to eat again. She had utilized her few days well. Asking for just about anything she could think of. She had plenty of food, plenty of drink, plenty of rest. She had bathed several times a day, swam in beautiful waterfall lakes, and of course had plenty of sex with extremely attractive men. But all that was very quickly fading into the realm of her memories. The place where her life wanders off into and is replaced by the stage. That which was in front of her. And she was getting ready to face some big challenges. She really still hadn't quite and firmly accepted the fact that she was pregnant. And on top of that how the baby was conceived and this weird adventure on the planet Dalinor that she was now a big part of. And of course how different her life would be if the energy she was about to face had never come into being. But no matter, it was here so she breathed deeply and prepared to face the days ahead.
Rain had come to get her while she was asleep. She had been swirling in an exceptionally amazing dream that seemed to last for hours but when she woke it felt like she hadn't even slept for one hour. Time had been becoming less of a real thing to her since she had arrived to Dalinor. Her dreams were so much more vivid, the few times she did sleep. And even the experiences during the day were so incredible and dreamy. She very quickly got herself ready to go asking for anything she could think of on the spot that she'd need to survive for a few weeks traveling and also bringing back what she could to the Lexx to store. Because after all even though blue goo was fine and in a peculiar sort of way she liked it, the food here was hundreds of times better. And as much as she was capable of bringing to the Lexx, she was going to. It was going to be a long journey.
Xev and Rain wandered down the streets of the underground city of Dalinor, the twin city as they called it here. There was much less people out then when she had arrived. Even the colors of the buildings and the shapes of them were different and not as big and bright as it was on her way in. Since she had no concept of time since she'd gotten here she decided to ask Rain about the storms, " Rain, are there storms happening now?" "There is one. It will be over soon. We will meet with Thunder and your two friends in a few moments and then the five of us will go to my sister's chamber." "Ok" Xev was intrigued with the sister. She remembered vague and hazy images of a dream she had in the dome. In the dream, the sister told Xev her name was Snow, which made sense because she also remembered Rain talking about her and saying how she was a master of all things winter. They continued to walk down the street and then Stanley came into view.
790 also became visible and he'd been given a device similar to the one he had on big Lexx only this one was ten times better. Thunder, Stanley and 790 were then in front of her. "Hey Xevy baby" Stanley said smoothly. He was clearly in a good mood and had been shown a good time Xev observed. "Wow Stanley you look happy. And 790 look at your new machine to get you from place to place." "Yes Xev I was treated very well here. And they gifted me with this special machine which has much more capabilities then that old piece of crap aboard the Lexx." 790 said very cheerfully "Well good I'm happy for you. Just don't try to kill us again, ok?" She said half joking, and half serious. "I won't, I promise,” He said sweetly and innocently like he was Xev's little brother. It was clear 790 was in a good mood too which can only be a good thing because he is one crazy robothead Xev thought to herself.
Stanley and Thunder began walking in the direction away from where Xev and Rain had come from. It did not take long before a very unique structure came into view. Upon a big hill in the distance was a solid white, sparkling, crystal blue tower with a lake around it. The tower was connected to what looked like a dome, which had an ethereal quality about it almost as if it wasn't there. It reminded her a little bit of the Brigadoom, the place where the actors put on the show about the Brunnen-G. The place that existed outside of time and space.
They approached it very gradually. Most of the people and many of the buildings weren't out anymore. They just walked on a long open road with very high ceilings and no clear distinct other end from their viewpoint. Rain began speaking, "The storm is almost over so my sister's chamber is almost completely back here in this reality" "Does she exist outside of time and space?" Xev asked. "Yes. She does." "Like the brigadoom" She said out loud but then very quickly realized they probably didn't know about the Brigadoom here, since she saw it in the light universe. "Yes like the brigadoom" Xev was surprised that they knew about it, "You know about the Brigadoom?" "Yes. Some of our people were friends with some of them" "Wow."
Stanley began speaking but he was half drunk so he was unintelligible for half of his words, "Oh are you talking about those stupid actors" "They weren't stupid Stanley. They were portraying Kai's story." Xev quickly rebutted heavily defending Kai's honor. Stanley felt a little bad because he could see he offended Xev even though he hadn't meant anything towards Kai. It's just that Mantrid was gobbling up the universe and he didn't think it was a good idea to be wasting time at a play, he thought to himself. "Sorry Stanley I didn't mean to get so mad just then. It's just I'm a little in shock still with the whole pregnancy thing." Xev was clearly deep in thought and not in as good a mood as Stan and 790 were. "Oh don't worry about it Xev. I didn't mean anything towards Kai. I was referring to the actors and the situation and just my own stupid way of going about things." "I know" Xev breathed deeply. Stan looked towards her with affection. She felt like a little sister to him and he realized he loved her like one.
Xev suddenly heard 790's digitalmode happening. "What are you looking up 790, " she asked. "I am uplinking into a supercomputer, which is stationed on this planet. I will be able to access it aboard the Lexx and with it find the Noah with much greater ease." "Oh, ok." Stan turned to Xev and said something but Xev couldn't really understand him. "What was that Stan" "Oh nothing, Xev don't worry about it" He nodded his head down as if he was falling asleep and very quickly picked his head back up and kept walking.
They were about a half a mile from the hill now. The shape of the structure was much more clear and she could even discern sculptures of women and mythical creatures she'd heard of and some she hadn't scattered about in a field near the dome and tower. The tower had 7 levels. From the top there was a lookout and the roof had intricate patterns of sacred geometrical designs sculpted onto it. The whole tower was solid white but had a bluish feel beneath its whiteness. The Dome was a purplish hue with whites and pinks. It seemed to be about half the size of the tower. The lake surrounded only a part of the front of the dome and tower complex. Its water was a clear crystal blue that reflected the feeling of the tower. There was a banner, which she could now see hovering above the dome. It seemed to not be attached to anything and was a mixture of triangles and circles. Its colors were many. With purple, pink, gold, and silver. A little bit of blue, a little bit of green and even one color, which she'd never seen before. It seemed to be a new color to her.
"Our sister awakes" Thunder said with a raspy voice. His voice sounded like he was sucking on electrical current. They then heard a woman singing. She was holding a note, which was very high and seemed to hold it for a very long time. They were now a few hundred feet away from the dome/tower complex. As they got closer and closer it became clear that there was no way to get to the front entrance to the dome. The tower actually was not attached to the dome. And the field of Sculptures also seemed to be on it's own little island. It wasn't water that ran through the whole property but some form of air that looked as if water was running through it. Even the lake was just a void. But it was filled with a crystal light, which was very soothing to both Stanley and Xev.
Rain began to speak, "Our sister sends us a message. She says welcome noble and brave crew of the Lexx. Today we leave this planet and seek out a council of warriors to form a clan that will attack our brother the Prince of Dalinor. Our goal is not to kill him. We are to eradicate the darkness from his soul and hopefully cure him of the poison, which infects him and the entire universe. We will collect our crew throughout the coming months and in 9 months our leader will be born. The attack will be launched the day of his birth. As he is an immortal, when he comes into existence he will already be fully-grown and fully ready to face the Prince. Our brother is strong but he will appear weak next to the child. Thank you to all of you. My home is open to you for the next hour. After that we will depart in your moth and one of our ships, to the Lexx, which hovers above our skies right now." "Wow she sounds like a great gal" Stanley said, a lot less drunk than he was before.
They were now standing next to the abyss in front of the house. It was captivating. It seemed to contain some sort of life force or manna, which clearly was fueling something very powerful. All of them, including 790 on his machine began hovering across it towards the entrance to the dome. The door to the dome was made out of white wood and had streaks of grey running diagonally across it. The grey streaks seemed to sparkle a bit. Xev and Stan were staring at the two brothers. Rain and Thunder's eyes were glowing incredibly bright. And Stanley made a face, which clearly indicated how cool he thought that was. They phased through the door. The door never opened. They just went right through it into the dome. The dome was about ten times larger on the inside than it appeared to be on the outside. Standing at the other end of it in a golden ruby laced chair, dressed in a silvery gown with blue crystals all over the torso was the exquisite Snow. Her beauty was immediately captivating and upon entering neither Stanley or Xev could resist getting on their knees and bowing their heads as far down as they could as a way to honor her beauty. 790 would have done the same had he a body.
"Thank you brave crew of the Lexx. You may come closer." Rain and Thunder floated off to the sides, Rain to one side and Thunder to the other. Xev, Stanley and 790 moved forward to within 20 feet of Snow’s chair. Snow was several steps up from the level where Stanley, Xev and 790 were, but it seemed as if she was right there next to them. She looked at Stanley and began speaking to him, "Stanley H Tweedle, Welcome to my Chamber. I am the daughter of a great and powerful wizard who came to this planet at the beginning of time. It was unclear where this wizard came from but it was clear that the beginning of our people is traced to the person who birthed me. My brothers came years after me. First Rain, then Thunder, and then our Prince. We all lived harmoniously together for millennia. It was unfortunate when the fury came. The fury brought with it cold and darkness to our people. And it poisoned all our lands and all our minds. Sure in the beginning the four of us weren't technically a family in the sense that we are now, since our people had no families, we were all one big family, but there was a bond between us. And as the time drew ever closer to the moment when the fury descended on us we became more and more aware of our close connection."
"Time is all pervasive. It is everywhere all simultaneously happening. Where you've been, where you're going to go, it all is within you in every moment. It is what makes everything so special. Magic runs through everything, everywhere. It is just the beings of that particular place in time and space that choose to access it or not. The fury did not change that it just added another element to the mix, which rides on the same wave, yet plays by different cards. You know all the answers brave crew of the Lexx. It is just the tools that come along that allow you to believe in yourself enough to seek out the truth to your dilemmas. Go now explore my complex. There are many secrets whispered into its walls."
Xev went with Rain towards the direction away from where the tower was. It was the direction of the sculptures. Stanley and Thunder went towards where the tower resided, along with 790 following behind on his machine. Snow was nowhere to be seen.


Chapter 7 the dome and the tower

There is a time and a place for everything. It is only our lack of will, which stops us from creating. The universe casts it's own shadow amongst the darkness. Light flickers in withered winds and spells count a sudden dawn into it's waking.
Snow was a princess. She had an elegance which superceded anything Xev had ever imagined could've been possible. Her eyes were enchanted of lifetimes and lifetimes of lives lived to the fullest in every possible way. Xev greatly admired her and wondered if perhaps someday she could be that strong and that committed to a cause.
Stanley, 790 and Thunder were heading down stairs. Stanley was struggling. He was walking slowly and counting each step out loud "447. 448. 449. 450.451.452.453" "Actually security guard class four, that was four thousand four hundred fifty three" 790 said real slowly as to make sure Stanley could follow him. "I know that robothead. I count it that way because if he said the whole number I’d run out of breath and collapse on the stairs" Stanley spoke through panting "well that would be an improvement" 790 responded "Hey I thought you said you weren't going to talk about us dying anymore" Stanley said indignantly. " I was only joking" 790 said very casually as to not arouse suspicion that he had any bad intention about Stan. 790 was able to float on his device over the stairs and Thunder was a magician so he was far ahead of both of them. Stanley thought to himself that he could only walk a couple more hundred stairs and then he was going to collapse.
Many moments later they finally reach the bottom. "437.438,439,440" Stanley shouted out the last step so joyfully. He continued hopping around the room that they were now in overexcited about his completion of the stairs. "So how many was that 790. What like 3423 or 4343 or what was it... um..." "Stanley Tweedle that was 5440 steps" 790 said in a friendly way but not missing the opportunity to point out Stanley's weakness.
Thunder was muttering something to himself across the room near a bookcase. A book started to hover in the air and light started coming out of his eyes and out of the book. Suddenly Thunder was singing a melody over and over again that was discernable by Stanley. "Bojodorum katakorem ... naga... naga ... doo shush" After a few times through it Stanley was able to pick up on it. He started singing it out of instinct. 790 made an incredibly funny face that indicated he was embarrassed by Stanley having the nerve to sing along with such a powerful wizards magical incantation. It wasn't before long that Stanley was even dancing a little bit which caused 790 to make an even more appalled looking face at him. Thunder was totally immersed in the enchantment and the light was continuing to come out of his eyes and surrounding the book in more of an open glow now. Finally the whole scene came to a close and the light disappeared and Stanley and Thunder stopped chanting. The book disappeared and all was quiet. And then a ringing was heard. Like a bell opening a door. And the bookshelf in front of Thunder disappeared and he motioned for Stanley and 790 to go through, which they did, both intrigued with what lie on the other side.
On the other side was a spiraling staircase going upwards. It seemed to go on forever. "Oh no not more stairs" Stanley whined loudly and drawn out. "Do not worry about these stairs. They are false stairs." Thunder said reassuring Stanley that he would make it to their destination. "False stairs? "Stanley asked not too confident that he could do this much stair climbing. "Stanley I mean that you can walk it. Here. Come. Like this" Thunder motioned for Stanley to come to the foot of the staircase and begin by just climbing up the first step. "Here look one two three..." on three Thunder disappeared. Stanley let out a whoa sound and then seconds later Thunder reappeared at the foot of the stairs. Thunder repeated one, two, three and vanished again and continued to do this multiple more times before 790 whizzed past Stanley and floated up the stairs and then vanished out of sight. "Come on Stanley its no big deal." Thunder again reassured Stanley of his safety. Stanley slowly but surely walked over and took the first step, then he took the second then he took the third and on the fourth he suddenly was moving very fast through a tunnel. He was not inside anything and he was going very, very, very fast. He made a few noises of ahhhh and whoaaas as the speed continued to bother him immensely.
When he stopped moving he realized he was in another library type of room but this was much bigger and much brighter. 790 was across a few desks with the digitalscreens on downloading some big file. Thunder was on a second floor, which actually had no floor. It was just hovering books. The bookshelves appeared to be attached to nothing as well. Stanley took a second to catch himself after such a crazy ride. "What was that tunnel thing I passed through" Stanley asked kinda freaked out, "Oh Stanley It is nothing" Thunder responded assuring him it's no big deal. "Oh it was definitely something" 790 stopped digitalscreen mode and began to talk, " Security Guard class 4. That was a timewarp. It took us into a place that does not exist in time or space." "Security guard class 4?" Stanley said with indignance, "I am a captain of the lexx the most powerful destructa-force in the two universes pal... well the baby of the Lexx the most powerful destructa-force in the two universes.... whatever... anyways I liked it better when you called me Captain" " Well Captain of the Lexx Jr We are in a library which houses the most thorough knowledge ever in the history of the two universes" "Oh yea...What type of knowledge" "The type that can help you from not getting killed Stanley Tweedle" "Well OK ... then show me something" 790 went back into digitalscreen mode and suddenly Stanley was taken off-guard and his eyes went black and then he too appeared to have digitalscreens on his eyes.
Stanley was floating in a hyperstar exchange center. Words of incredible length passed everywhere in the skies surrounding him. He felt very peaceful. All of the sudden a body with a 790 type robothead came floating over to him and at first he panicked since he had a hard time moving. "Don't worry security gu..... I mean Captain. It's me 790, Josie. Your friend" 790 said very amicably. "Wow it's actually ... well it's great... you have a body... how is it possible?” Stanley said now much calmer "We are in a hyperstar exchange center." 790 said. "A what?" "A hyperstar exchange center. It’s the place where all the knowledge of everything is kept. It’s like the akashic records." Stanley still had no idea what he was talking about, "Its a place where all the information is kept. Of everything ever in all of history.. All of it.." 790 said slightly irritated but immediately calming down. "ok ok ok" Stan said now understanding where he was. "Well why can't I move and you can and you have a body" "Because we are in a place of no limits where anything can happen. It does not exist in time or space and there are no laws." "Then why can't I move?" "You can move, you just don't believe you can" "I, what?" "You don't believe in yourself" "I don't believe in myself" Stanley repeated this phrase over and over to himself and after four or five times it sunk in and he looked a little disappointed. "Oh don't be a sourpuss come on use your potential. Show me what you got." 790 said encouraging Stan, "Come on get up Stanley. Show me what you got." 790 said again.
Stanley suddenly thought about Xev, about hanging out with her and how much he cared for her. And he felt the sensations return to him that allowed him to move his arms and legs. Shortly after he was able to maneuver himself more and he let out a sigh of relief and started moving forward. He opened his eyes and there below him was Xev and Rain in the great, big field next to the Dome. There were dozens of sculptures of all sorts of things. Dragons, Lizards, Centaurs, Unicorns, giant spiders, dragonflies, other creatures he did not recognize and statues of the Goddess. There were dozens of statues of women of exceptional beauty. Snow was with Xev in the field. Rain was standing a few steps behind them and they were all in the center of all the sculptures in a rock circle. Suddenly he intuited something and he heard the name Stonehenge. "Stonehenge?" He said out loud while hovering above the field. He then heard in his mind "A land where the druids once were" And he remembered that guy Uther, who was bitten by Vlad and then killed by Kai. Uther had talked about the Druids. And then there was that party where they brought Xev back from the dead and that weird guy tried to marry him. He quickly got that memory away from his head and continued to pay attention to the three in the stone circuit, which he also intuited was not Stonehenge. It was just deeply connected to Stonehenge and similar stone circles that were inspired by this much more ancient and greater stone circuit.
They were all glowing bright. Xev looked as radiant as he'd ever seen her. She did not notice him floating up in the sky above her. They all were chanting some sort of mantra that Stanley could not understand. They were dancing around a blue flame in the center and they were reaching up into the sky. At first he became nervous that he'd be spotted, not that it would really matter because these were his friends, but he just wanted to be stealthy for once. But it was clear they were totally entranced in what they were doing, they would not notice him. They stopped and got on their knees and bowed their heads to the ground. There was one of them on each side of a circle as if a triangle were placed over a circle. In the middle was the blue flame, which seemed to be a single candle extending from the core of the planet to the grounds above. Stanley felt it's presence and it sort of reminded him of Kai but only a lot stronger. And he felt that it had something to do with the essence of Xev's baby. Before he could explore further he was called out of his dream.
"Ok let's go" It was 790 back to his former self, just the robothead on the new machine he'd been given. They were no longer in the floating space. They were also no longer in either of the library rooms or the dome or around the complex. They were on top of a building that looked a lot like the one where they landed when they first came down to the planet. He looked around and suddenly the moth was there. 790 floated into it and told Stanley to hop in so they could go. "But what about Xev and the others" "They're already up there" "They are?" "Yes. They are. Now come on Let's go" Stanley got in and after a few moments realized that the moth was flying but he wasn't flying it. He looked over at 790 and asked if he was flying it. "Of course I'm flying it" "How?" "With my new capabilities" "you can control a moth with that machine you're on?" "Yes Captain I can" "Wow. That's cool" "Yes it is. It is cool " 790 said in a funny voice.
"So where is it we're going again?” Stanley asked 790, as they were about to break away from the atmosphere of the planet Dalinor.
"To the Noah"

here are chapters 8 & 9. 10 is an important one so i'm working on it tonight and probably it'll be up within a couple of days.


Chapter 8 the Noah gets visitors

As Stanley and 790 approached the little Lexx the first thing that they noticed is the little Lexx was no longer a little ship. It had grown to its full size while they were down on the planet. Not only that, but it was about ten times bigger than the original Lexx was. "Would you look at that?" Stan said out loud with amazement. "Yea it's pretty cool," 790 said in a sarcastic tone, obviously thinking Stanley is stupid for admiring such things. "The only thing that's cool is my dead man in black." 790 added. "Yea what ever happened with that, did you ask them about bringing him back from the dead? I mean bringing him back from being part of a pea sized particle thingy mixed with Lyekka's ship." "Yes I asked many times in many places and the best answer I got was a tip about a place I can check out where I might be able to see him at a certain time if I measure it correctly." "Huh... What place?" "Huh? What place? " 790 repeated mocking Stanley "What place did they tell you to check out where we could see Kai?" Stanley asked, now curious. Stan stared at 790 waiting for an answer. After a minute, Stan made a very intense face that looked like he was ready to throw 790 out the window into space. "The Outer Zone " 790 finally blurted out. "The Outer Zone? Isn't that where Kai played Prince in Chess?" "Yes captain it is" 790 responded in a belittling tone. "Well we should go there then." Stan said cheerfully. "Yes we should." 790 looked as if he was bored with the conversation. Fortunately they had to talk no more since they were now inside ready to land on the bridge, 790 thought.
There to greet them was Thunder and Snow. Stan and 790 landed the moth and as they got out of the moth, Stan called out to Thunder and Snow "How did you guys get here?" Thunder answered Stan, "We traveled from Dalinor to your ship in our ship." "Your ship huh?" Stan paused for a moment and then asked him if their ship was big. “Big compared to what?" "Bigger than a moth?" "Yes it is bigger than a moth Stanley" "Well how big is it?" "Well Stanley," Thunder started but then Rain came to greet them and he continued, " If our ship left your ship, on it's own, it would be about half the size of the LeXX" "half the size of the LeXx " Stanley laughed to himself, "How is that possible?" Snow answered Stanley's question,
"Well Stanley Our ship is made out of pure energy. Pure biochemical living breathing membranal tissue somewhat similar to the Lexx but made out of ultra dense malleable particles that allow it to have access to just about any airspace it wants without being detected by anything that it doesn't want to be seen by. It can fit in any space simultaneously existing over it and not being seen at all. In fact right now you are in it as well as inside your own ship the Lexx. " Stanley thought to himself like the dark zone and the light universe and then looked at Snow, "Yea speaking of the LeXX... It's huge!!!" "Yes Stanley it's big" Snow replied. She continued, " even though it was only a few days that you were on our planet Dalinor it was months in Lexx's life and the Lexx grows to maturity very fast" "you bet it does!" Stanley responded enthusiastically. "Yes, well it is time to travel" Thunder said to encourage Stanley to get moving and command the Lexx to go find the Noah.
Stanley made his way to the deck of the bridge and was surprised that Xev was nowhere to be seen. The three Dalinoreans followed shortly behind led by 790 in his new hovering machine. "Hey, where's Xev?" Stanley asked as the first person walked in the room. It was 790, who ignored him. Next to follow was Rain who answered Stan's question, " Xev is resting in her bedroom" "her bedroom huh?" Stan replied wondering if she'd been able to bring anything back to make her bedroom more comfortable.
When they had left the Lexx to go down to the planet Dalinor, Xev's bedroom was a circular room with it's own tongue toilet room and wash room but nothing but a cold rocky floor to sleep on. There weren't even any blankets. "Well I hope she's comfortable." Stan said very warmly, in a manner revealing how much he cared about Xev. "I'm sure she's comfortable" Snow replied. She continued, " well Ok Stanley, command the Lexx to go to the coordinates 790 will beam up into its navigational system." He nodded and walked onto the captain's command post.
"Lexx?" Stanley asked after he placed his hand to the keyscreen. "Yes captain" Lexx's voice had changed and sounded like the other Lexx ship. It made Stanley feel happy to be back aboard his favorite starship. "Take us to the coordinates 790 is going to beam up to you" Stan ordered. 790's digitalscreens went up and the Lexx started moving fast towards some destination that was to supposedly be where the Noah was. It was also where they would find Prince, the man of death who tortured Stanley on Fire, blew up Water and was the head of the ATF on Earth. A truly evil man, Stanley thought to himself. Stanley wasn't totally thrilled with this plan but he trusted that the wisdom of the Dalinoreans was far superior to his own, so there must be a good reason why they're going after the Noah to find Prince.
Snow looked at Stanley and signaled to him to follow her down a passageway towards Xev's bedroom. Stan began walking in the direction of Xev's bedroom and when he was 100 feet from it he smelled a wonderful sweet scent wafting from it. When they arrived they walked through a curtain and Xev's bedroom had been transformed to a luxurious suite of a room. It had color, it had passion, it had couches, circular beds, poles with vines wrapped around them, drink bars, and various exotic plants. It had it’s own tongue toilet room, a small washroom and even a small galley which seemed to have a large box with a bunch of food in it. Stanley was happy for Xev.
Xev was her usual radiant self, looking beautiful as ever. She looked at Stanley and had a big smile on her face. She was not wearing her usual cluster skin outfit. She had on something that would be akin to the blue fur she wore on the show Xevivior, only it covered much more of her body and looked as it had been modified to be worn by a Queen. It was blue with silver streaks in it. It was long, flowing and seemed to brighten Xev’s face and eyes. It shined in the light and Stanley was very impressed. Stanley looked at Snow with a dropped jaw. She smiled at him. Stanley could now feel within himself how much things were changing and it made him feel joy but also a bit unsettled.
It did not take long for the Lexx to get to where the Noah was stationed. When they arrived to the destination where the Noah was, they were in front of a small bluegreen planet with lots of water and some land. There were also some snow-covered landmasses. It didn't look like anything to be afraid of, but on the planet, supposedly, was the man they were looking for.
Prince was on the planet and he was doing his favorite thing, causing madness and mayhem. He was riding around in a helicopter car with missiles on it, blowing stuff up and laughing uncontrollably in his own maniacal way. Priest was stuck in a backseat, which was far more uncomfortable then what Prince had going on. Bunny was still aboard the Noah, which was parked underneath the snowy landmass in an underground dome structure. All of the girls stayed aboard the Noah as well and Bunny had successfully slept with seven of the women. Although, some of the women were more girls since they were too young to be considered women yet. Bunny felt pretty good about her new found joy. But she was a bit upset about being left behind by Prince and her husband. Priest hadn't really wanted to go but Prince made him. She stayed busy relaxing, having sex, and eating of the well-stocked pantry aboard the Noah. She was stuck in the ship beneath the snow but she made the best of it.
Prince had destroyed two planets since they had left the solar system, which housed Earth. He purposely landed in the snowmass, because he knew no one would be able to leave and then he flew out in the only other spaceship aboard which was 5 times bigger than the average space vessel he was used to flying when he worked for the ATF. After a few days on the planet he parked the spaceship somewhere where no one would find it and managed to steal a fairly large helicopter that could also be used as a car. It was well equipped with a significant amount of firepower. But Prince favored the missiles most. He had also managed to wrangle Priest into coming with him so he could send him on tasks, which he didn't feel like doing himself.
The planet they were on had a small population of Earth like inhabitants. There were only 500,000 people throughout the 6 landmasses. Prince had managed to kill about half of them in the week he had been there. His killing spree knew no bounds, especially on this particular planet where even though the people knew of war and had weapons, they weren't very determined to fight back. All the better for Prince he thought to himself. But sometimes Prince did enjoy a good battle. Priest sat in the back quiet and obediently did whatever it was that was asked of him, which when they would land would be to fetch Prince various things, break into houses to steal objects of interest, kill if asked, and various other odd jobs. Suddenly in the sky above them they saw a large spacecraft, which was circular with a triangular point to it. It very rapidly came over to them and engulfed them in it.
When they came to, they were aboard the Lexx and trapped behind a glass dome, which Prince immediately tried to break with no avail. On the other side stood Stanley, Xev, and the two brothers who Prince would get to know so well in the coming months. Prince was furious, as he knew he was captured and he was stuck with Priest behind a glass dome aboard the Lexx. "What have you done with me?" He called out to Stanley and Xev. "We've come to rescue you." Xev responded. "Rescue me?" Prince did not seem amused " Yes rescue you." She repeated. "But I don’t need to be rescued. I was having fun destroying planets and people and causing all sorts of terror, chaos and destruction. It is what I do. I'm very good at it" "Yes you were but now you're not" She spoke as if Prince had no choice in the matter. "Well Xev it's certainly nice to see you and all but I don't have time for whatever it is you have planned for me. So just let me go and I’ll forget you ever captured me, alright?" "You do not have a choice in the matter" She said assertively, now very serious and threatening. Prince backed off knowing he was defeated...for now...

Chapter 9 searching for the Prince of Dalinor

" So, Xev what is it you have planned for me?" Prince shouted from behind the glass dome staying standing terribly still but every few moments hounding Xev to let him out and give him back his ship so he could continue to plunder and destroy. Priest lay on the cold rocky floor shivering and looking very pathetic, every once in while calling out Bunny's name. "What is it that I have planned for you? Let me see... hmm..." Xev gave the impression she was going to tell Prince something but then decided not to finish " What?" Prince asked with force "Well Prince it is not right for me to tell you. I think you'd much rather meet my friend here" Xev signaled to a corner that Prince could not see and out of it popped a woman who seemed familiar to him. "This is Snow" Xev said, " I believe you know her... very well" "Know her? I don’t know her at all let alone very well!" Prince said out loud defensively, confused and annoyed as to what strange trick Xev was playing on him. Xev left the bridge. "Yes my love you know me" Snow said while looking into Prince's eyes. Her eyes took prince aback and suddenly it all came back to him. He had one memory from before the planet Fire. A memory of a woman, and in the memory he actually feels something he hasn't felt since then and had forgotten about until just now. Love. He remembers loving this woman.
He came back to his current predicament and looked at the woman again. "Rachel?" He asked Snow "Yes that is what I called myself when I taught you" "Taught me?" " Yes, taught you. I was your teacher, you, my student. We traveled the stars just you and I and dreamt into existence many beautiful planets. You don't remember because you were touched by the fury. After you were corrupted, you created Fire to trap souls there that you could torture as to create an army which could attack Water." She paused for a second then continued, "Water was a planet you and I had created together. It was the token of our love. But after the fury consumed you, you began to hate me. You drove me away and eventually forgot all about me and how you came about to be stuck on Fire. You had a permanent and undying urge to destroy the planet Water but never would be able to do so because a big part of you existed within it preventing you from doing so" "What? You're lying? This can't be real!" Prince said not believing a word of what she said " It is as real as the suffering you've caused, my love" "Please stop calling me that, I am not your love. I am Pri... " " No your not... not anymore... Now you're just a monster. But it's not your fault. You are consumed by a force which exerts complete control over you..." She turned away for a moment then looked back at Prince with a gaze that actually intimidated him a little bit, "But we are going to cure you of it."
Prince did not allow himself to be threatened. So rather than stay listening to Snow go on about how she was his lover before he became evil he began scanning the room for other people who he could talk to, in an effort to convince them to let him out, of course he thought to himself. Prince glanced into the distance and saw Stanley and decided to engage him. Right before talking to Stanley he looked at Snow one more time and spoke in a cruel and threatening way "I don't know who you think you are. But I am Prince, former ruler of Fire and I've always been bad!” She just smiled and did not feel threatened at all.
"Stanley" Prince said in his usual tone of voice to Stan, which was so calm it had to be hiding a threat beneath it. It took two more times before Stanley responded and all that came out was 'oh, no, not you again.’ Finally he looked at Prince and signaled that he was ready to hear Prince speak. "Stanley I want to make a deal with you." " nooooo! No deals with you pal" "But Stanley I could be your pal. You just never let me." "uh un, you're evil. You destroyed water. And tried to blow up the Earth and tortured me on Fire. I'm not listening to you" " But Stanley I can give you what you want." "No you can't" "yes I can, I can get you women and power and that's the only thing that men care about" "I don’t' care about that stuff anymore, I'm reformed" "I don't believe that. I know you Stanley. We've been through a lot together" "yea so what? That doesn't mean I'm going to help you or make any deals or anything that does anything good for you. You deserve the very worst of the worst of punishments and since I can't give you that I'm just going to turn away and ignore you. So just shut up and leave me alone!" Stanley stormed off the bridge. The only person left on the bridge was 790,who was in digitalmode, sitting in front of the deck. And of course Priest was still curled up on the floor like a puppy dog, panting and whining for Bunny.
Stanley decided to go to Xev's bedroom to have a heart to heart with her because he was a little concerned about her. He hadn't seen her that much since they were on the planet Dalinor, except for the little bit of time in between being pampered on Dalinor, to when they split ways at Snow's Chamber and very brief moments aboard the Lexx since they got back. "You know Xev you're like a little sister to me" "Aww Stan. I love you too. You are like my big brother... who I always have to protect" Stan laughed and she gave him a light love tap on the shoulder. " Stan I am really glad to have known you and glad you are going to be a part of this huge shift in my life. You will be Uncle Stan" "Haha right on. Yea I'm glad I'm here for this change too Xev" He paused for a second then continued, " Xev there's something I want to ask you." "Shoot." " 790 told me that there was a way to see Kai" "see Kai? You mean like a photograph?" " No like really see him. In person!" " What? How?" " The outer zone" " the outer zone? You mean where Kai played Prince in chess?" " Yea. The people on Dalinor told him that there was a way if he measured it right or something, that we could see Kai. So what I wanted to ask you is. Well... do you want to go see him?" "Well Stanley of course I do" She almost had tears in her eyes thinking about seeing her love again, the father of her child.
Rain and Thunder were deep in meditation searching the universe for their brother the Prince of Dalinor. They had scanned over much of the universe but hadn't found any trace of him anywhere. They were getting discouraged, but it did not matter that much because they had almost 9 months before Xev's child was born. And they could not attack their brother until that time. But they wanted to begin tracking him so that when they were ready they could go after him and cure him of the fury, the poison, which ran through him like a virus infecting his soul. Snow was working with 790 scanning even deeper places, that Rain and Thunder had trouble finding. After both teams were unsuccessful, they decided to join forces and all four work together to find him. But that too did not work. They were getting ready to call it quits, for now at least, when Xev and Stanley came onto the Deck. Prince stood to attention and even Priest seemed to come out of his stupor a little bit.
" We want to go to the outer zone" Xev said very seriously "What?" exclaimed Prince " we want to go the outer zone" Xev said again, this time with more force. 790 came out of his digital mode and repeated 'the outer zone?" 790's eyescreens filled with tears " yes 790 we want to go see Kai and Stan told me you know when and where it's going to be possible" "yes Xev. I do know where. Joy to the infinite degree. The outer zone. Kai. Xev, you have made my day." 790 turned to Snow and said, "We can look for this evil dude later cupcake” sounding much more masculine then feminine." "When is it possible to see him?" Xev asked 790, "We can go there in 13 days and he will be visible for 14 hours. After that we must wait another 8 months before he becomes visible again. But just seeing my man for any amount of time is the best thing anyone could ever give me" " How far away are we from the outerzone?" Xev asked now very intrigued and overjoyed with the possibility of seeing Kai. 790 scanned real quickly then said, " We are 13 days ride from the opening right now!" "Well ok then we better get moving. Stanley?"
She turned to Stan and Stan stood up on the deck. Prince called out to Stan asking what they were all excited about since he could not hear the conversation just see their movements. Stanley again waited to respond just to irritate Prince, "Going to see Kai. Now bug off!" "Kai, But I brought Kai back to life just before he crashed into that ship so he could die when it blew up." "Yes you did and that's just one reason why you're evil. I mean why couldn’t' you have brought him back to life when he was safe with us on the Lexx huh?" "Because Stanley I'm Prince I am Evil. And besides whatever happened to this other person you were looking for?" "We don’t' have to find him right away so we can take a break from that and go see Kai since he only becomes visible in 13 days for 14 hours and then not again for another 8 months." " Well Ok then" Prince did not care all that much but he was curious how Kai was able to be seen since he had killed Kai. Prince stopped prying Stanley for anything but continued to glare in his general direction.
Stanley commanded the Lexx to let 790 show him the coordinates to take them to the outerzone portal. Xev, Snow, Rain, and Thunder all were on the bridge fully engaged with the idea of seeing the last of the Brunnen-G. Prince and Priest sat on the floor behind the glass dome. Thunder had given them a deck of cards so they were playing War. Snow had brought them a little bit of food and a couple of chairs also. So they weren't totally uncomfortable. Everyone was pretty excited to see Kai. Even Prince couldn't deny that he was a bit curious to see Kai.

I just finished reading chapters 3 and 4, and now we know where Prince is from! He seems to be more like an Ares god of war, wanting to destroy anything he comes across. Hopefully I'll have time this weekend to catch up on the rest, very good story.

and here is chapter 10.

Chapter 10 the outer zone

At the edge of the universe, hidden in every part of space, beneath the space that is reachable by those who exist, is a doorway. This doorway leads to a transcendent place that those who have faded into obscurity are able to spontaneously appear in from time to time. This place is called the OuterZone. It is a place largely inhabited by the Brunnen-G and other high warrior councils who have existed throughout time. Only the very determined and the very skilled can manage to find the portals, which allow them passage to see and interact with the dead. And even those few rare people who are able to do such things very seldom are able to leave to tell the story.
The crew of the Lexx were very focused. They were giving all their attention to getting to this portal, which was open only for 14 hours. It would allow them to see their beloved Kai, if only for an instant. It would be a short time to reunite, share stories, and then say goodbye for another 8 months. After the eight months no one was sure when he would appear again. Maybe it would be a year, maybe two, maybe ten, maybe never. But even though seeing Kai was very important, especially to Xev and 790, the thoughts of many of the crew, most notably Xev, could not help but to get enmeshed in a very monumental shift that was also to occur soon. So much would change in 9 months when Xev's child would be born and they would all have to face the fury head on at the root of it's evil. The fury infected much of everywhere. But no one was really sure where it came from or how it managed to spread to almost all corners of the universe.
It was day 9 of their journey towards the outer zone. Xev was getting restless. She was worried that they were going to miss the portal opening. Snow kept reassuring her that the Lexx and 790 have pinpoint accuracy and they would arrive at the precise moment it opens and leave the precise moment it closes. Xev still wasn't convinced because she knew if they arrived five seconds too late they'd miss the portal opening and If they didn't leave when it closed they would all be discreated, which meant they would vanish into oblivion without a trace of ever having existed. So she was naturally skeptical and also a little intimidated about what would happen if they didn't leave the outer zone on time.
The last four days went by incredibly slow with Rain and Thunder meditating continuing to try to find their brother. Snow helped 790 navigate the precise measurements so the Lexx would pass through the portal in the 5-second window it had. The final day approached and everyone was dead silent including the two brothers who had stopped their search and now were focused on the 14-hour sitting they were going to have with Kai in the hours ahead. 790 was making all sorts of noises. Xev too was making sounds of excitement, panic, nervousness, arousal and also shock. This was it, in two hours Kai was going to be in front of them and they could tell him anything they want and listen to him speak. Xev wasn't sure whether she'd be able to touch him or whether he'd look alive or dead but she knew they could talk to each other, because that much was explained to her.
The minutes before the portal opening a distinct noise could be heard in the space just beyond. 790 started making a sound, which was like a rising pitch lasting for a long time to illustrate his anticipation. With one minute to go Xev looked at 790 and time seemed to stand still and she heard him call out " even though you're carrying a child from his essence he's still my dead man in black. And I’m going to smother him up for all 14 hours." "No way 790 we have to share him" " not a chance loveslut, he's all mine" "Hey I want to talk to him too" Stanley called out " Yes we all get to see him for most of the 14 hours and me and 790 get a little private time." Xev responded trying to take control of the situation. " Oh ok," 790 gave in then continued, "But I get to see him for twice the private time you do, ok, Xev" "We'll see what Kai wants" "yes we will" 790 said with mischievous eyes
Before they knew it they were there in the outer zone. It had all worked out they were standing in a field surrounded by mountains and there in the distance stood Kai dressed in his faded Brunnen-G outfit, still as black as when he was an undead assassin. He looked exactly as he did the day he finally passed over. Kai walked over to the crew of the Lexx. Rain, Thunder, and Snow all bowed immediately in his presence. Prince and Priest were placed in a cage that was waiting in a circle a mile or so away which was set up by the three Dalinoreans intentions upon entering the portal to the outer zone. This was also where everyone would be gathered for much of the 14 hours. Both Xev and 790 had tears in their eyes and even Stanley shed a tear or two. " It's nice to see you dead man" Stanley said to break the awkward silence. Kai actually smiled really big and it was shocking for Xev, Stanley and 790 to see that since it was the first time they'd ever seen him be able to smile. Finally Kai spoke, " Hello. It's good to see you and I'm glad you've come. It is regrettable that are time is short but I'm grateful that there is at least this, because it's more than most people get." Kai sounded very distinguished and the crew of the Lexx were overjoyed. " Kai, I don't know what to say" Xev spoke through tears. 790 was strangely quiet, just staring with heart-eye screens. Snow, Rain and Thunder stayed bowed. Kai began to speak again " Let us go and sit down in the stone circle that was set up for us and relax and talk of what has happened and what will happen. OK?" Everyone was speechless and had a hard time moving, but after a few moments they began to make their way over to the stone circle where Prince and Priest were in their cage.
The crew sat down in comfortable chairs. Stanley, Xev, and Kai were in the three points of the triangle in the circle and the two brothers and Snow formed a second triangle overlapping it. 790 hovered next to Kai with heart-eyescreens. Snow, Rain and Thunder were on one knee with their hands in prayer pose and their heads bowed. They would just listen to the conversation the last of the Brunnen-G would have with Stanley, Xev and 790. Stanley and Xev both sat in fairly ornate chairs made out of lightly colored clay and stone. There were Rubies inlaid in Xev's and Sapphires inlaid in Stanley's. Kai's chair was by far the most beautiful of them all. It was also made out of clay and stone but had a beautiful plaster on it, which was the same color Xev had seen on the banner above Snow's Chamber. This color was not of the colors that a normal human could see. It was a special color. Xev pieced together it must have something to do with the great warriors who exist and have existed, since it was associated with Snow and Kai.
After a few moments Kai bowed his head and everyone took part in a moment of silence, even 790. Then Kai began talking, " I am not fully cognizant of what is happening in the world of the living. But I have been made aware of what it is you all are about to face... I am also aware of Xavyr... " Xev had a look of surprise on her face since she'd never heard her child's name before. Kai continued, " Xavyr is of my essence and Xev's. He will be the greatest warrior ever to exist in the universe since he will not be pure good or pure evil but a merger of the two. It is a new energy, which has no name. It is this energy that can create or destroy anything it chooses to. It will start with the fury, which has caused so much suffering since it was born. Those in the world of the living, even the most knowledgeable magicians of the planet Dalinor do not know what caused the fury. I, too, since now being a part of oblivion have not been able to see all these answers, but I have seen that the fury was not caused by anyone or anything. It came into existence just as all great things do... Of no origin... of no end... It is now a part of things and it's being has allowed yet even a new energy to be born. That is the energy which Xavyr will carry. The difference between the origin of life, and the origin of evil, is that the origin of this new energy was actually willed to manifest. And its birth is well established in a point of time and space."
" I do not know what will happen when Xavyr faces the Prince of Dalinor. I only know that the Prince will be cured of the fury. What will come of the fury after that is unclear and uncertain. The fury first manifested on the Planet Dalinor since it was on this planet that the greatest energy of creation existed. The fury was drawn to this high energy because that is how evolution works. When a great thing exists for a long enough time, something new comes from it. Not being called into existence in the case of the fury, but just choosing to be so. After the fury infected all of Dalinor and was concentrated inside the Prince, it began to multiply and spread throughout the universe causing evil to emerge everywhere. And it was ever since then that the battle has been taking place. A battle, which neither side can ever win nor ever lose. A battle which only causes suffering to both sides."
" They fight because they try to inhabit the same space. There is no where else for them to exist so they must fight to have their way be the way of whatever land they are fighting over. Good naturally is more defensive and tries to reason with Evil. But evil cannot be reasoned with since it is exactly what it was designed to be. Any person or being whose evil can be reasoned with is not purely evil" This made Prince contemplate his essence. For if he reasoned with others and was reasoned with as often as he did, according to Kai's explanation he was not as evil as he thought he was. He wasn't fully ready to accept this yet though. Kai went on, " I know you didn't come here just to hear what I have learned from being on the other side. You also came to satisfy your longing for me. But that cannot be so. The outerzone does not exist for lovers to reunite in an embrace. I do not exist in the sense I did even when I was undead. I am just a hologram to you. I can only talk to you and listen to what is said to me." Xev seemed disappointed but she wasn't convinced yet that she wouldn't be able to at least give Kai a hug.
Stanley looked as if he wanted to say something, "Yes Stanley?" Kai asked him, "Kai, I am curious about the outerzone. How come when you came here you weren't subject to a schedule of a precise time to arrive and a precise time to leave? " "There are two reasons for that Stanley. One both Prince and I were not alive in the sense you all are. Save 790" Kai looked over to 790 who was right next to him. This quick glance pleased 790 very much. Kai continued, "And Second, This is not the same part of the outerzone Prince and I were in. This is an even deeper part of the outerzone, which could almost be called the outerzone of the outerzone! And here the portals are what govern it"
There was a brief silence. The Dalinoreans stayed bowed, Priest was playing Solitaire inside the cage, and Prince was watching the conversation. Xev started to desire her alone time with Kai. She knew she probably wouldn't be able to touch him but she wanted to speak to him alone anyways. Kai began to speak again, " I will talk more of the fury later but right now I must honor an agreement I made with Xev in the ethereal plane." He looked at Xev and smiled. And even though Xev knew this was but a temporary moment, the smile and sight of her beloved Kai filled her up with so much love that she could only help but feel overwhelming joy. Kai stood up and began to walk away from the circle towards a mountain. He briefly turned around and signaled to Xev to follow him. She got up and started to walk away when 790 called to her, " Now I hope you don't forget OUR agreement loveslut!" "790 could you please stop calling me that! My name is Xev. And I am a woman of my word. I will make sure you also get some alone time with Kai." "Well you better or else... or else... I'll be very upset." "Ok 790. Don't worry." She walked towards Kai and when they were finally out of range of the others she began to speak to him.
" Kai could we stop walking for a sec so I can just look at you" He stopped and looked at her with loving eyes. She continued speaking, "So, can we really not touch at all?" She reached her hand out to grab his hand as she spoke this. He reached his hand out as well, but it was true. Her hand went through his hand as if he were a hologram. She started to cry a little, but quickly stopped, because she knew if she let it out she would lose herself and not appreciate what she did actually have. It was a blessing just to see Kai and be able to talk with him. They just looked at each other for a while and then Kai began to speak, "Xev I must say. I am very sorry I was never able to be for you what I know you needed.... I kn..." She stopped him by placing her hands to his lips. And even though she couldn't touch him he picked up on her intention and stopped speaking. She waited a moment and then said, "Do not be sorry last of the Brunnen-G. We had our time together and it was what it was. I can't say I don't wish that we could have had a normal relationship, because of course I do, but I can say I am very grateful for what we did have. And just to have known you is a great gift." She paused and thought to herself that it was getting really hard not to hug him. For even when he was undead she could still touch him, even though he was cold and did not respond to the touch like an alive human would. He picked up on this and began speaking but this time she heard his voice in her mind.
"Close your eyes Xev." She did. At first she was still well aware of where she was, in the outerzone, speaking with Kai's ghost, but after a few moments she began to have the sensation of flying. She then forgot of her body and for what seemed like a lot longer amount of time than it actually was she forgot everything, who she was, where she'd come from, what her purpose was, everything. And in a quick flash suddenly she was in a beautiful temple.
Her intuition told her she was on Brunnis-2 during the height of their civilization. She turned around and there was Kai, looking as beautiful as ever, dressed in a colorful, bright, and illuminated Brunnen-G outfit. She remembered herself. She was Xev, and this was Kai, and before she could explore her thoughts further he spoke. "Xev, because I am finally a part of the world after the world, I am able to visit your dreams. Your body is still in the outerzone but your soul is here with me in a dream on Brunnis. I asked the high council for this because I know this is something you need to keep you going for what is to come. As you know I am the father of your child. And this is no ordinary child because it did not come out of a sexual encounter but from a higher force." He walked towards her and extended his arms. Xev was confused at first but then she felt that since this was a dream it was not subject to the laws of the outerzone, which meant she could touch him.
She slowly moved into his arms. For she was not 100% sure she could feel him. But when she felt the sensation of being wrapped in Kai's arms and inhaled his sweet fragrance, she allowed herself to fully sink into his embrace. She did not hold back the tears this time. They just stood there embracing for what seemed like hours. She looked up at him with tears streaming down her face. She tried speaking but was crying too hard for any words to come out. This time Kai brought his hand up to her lips but now he was able to touch her. She still could not fully comprehend what was happening. But she tried not to think too much and just let herself be there in the dream. All of a sudden he kissed her. At first this shocked Xev, but she very quickly got over the shock and just let all of her love come out in this kiss. It was not before too long that he led her over to a circular bed with lots of comfortable colorful blankets on it. He slowly lowered her down on to the bed and got on top of her. She made a look of surprise when she felt 'him' on her. He was warm and she could feel and smell his breath on her face.
The dream was perfect. They made love for hours and Xev brought every ounce of love and passion she had for this man and unleashed it into him in a fiery swirl of ecstasy. Afterwards they lay there naked for a while and she nuzzled her head into his shoulder and felt as she had never felt before, at home. She forgot all about her life on the Lexx or that her body was still in the outerzone. Unfortunately this feeling did not last because before she knew it she was again standing beneath the same mountain in the outerzone. She opened her eyes and there was Kai smiling at her. She tried to hug him again but walked right through him. He turned around to face her and spoke, "I'm sorry my love but we are back in the outerzone. The dream could not last forever. And the portal will close in a few hours. We should go back over to the circle for there is more to be said." Xev was mildly disappointed that their time was coming to a close here in the outerzone. But she felt a sense of joy for the gift of the dream she had just been given which was much more than she was expecting to receive.
As soon as they reached the circle 790 called out to her in a very irritated voice, "LoveBitch! You betrayed me! You were gone for over 7 hours! " Stanley stood up and fiercely defended Xev, "Cool it 790! Why don't you just give her a break, huh? This may be one of the only times she gets to see Kai and she doesn't need you hounding her over and over, ok robothead?" "No, not ok. This may be the only time I get see Kai too. And it's just not fair that she gets all the time with him." 790 began pouting and pouting and then Xev came over and kneeled down in front of him. "790 I honor my agreement. It's your turn to spend time with Kai alone" 790 stopped sobbing and looked up, "Really? You didn't betray me?" "No 790. I told you I keep my promises." "Oh Joy!"
790 hovered over to Kai and they both wandered off in the direction of another mountain. A couple of hours later they returned and 790 had heart-eye screens again. Kai sat down in the same chair, which he sat, down in before and began speaking. He talked more of the history of the fury and how pervasive it was now. He also mentioned that he too had no idea where the Prince of Dalinor was right now. This disappointed the Dalinoreans a little bit since they thought that Kai would know this information. Kai stopped talking for a moment then smiled, " My dear friends. Our time is coming to a close. And to ensure you all get out safely I recommend you begin to ready yourself to depart." He paused for a moment then continued, " Even though I am gone and cannot be of immediate assistance to you remember that I am a part of Xavyr and will be with you through him. Do not be afraid of facing the fury for it has no chance against Xavyr." He stopped again for a moment then looked at Xev, "Let time be your guide. And the wisdom of the ages your staff of power. You are strong and brave and in your new life I know you will find peace. My love is with you." He turned to Stanley, " Stanley, you have undergone a tremendous change since you were the cowardly arch-traitor. You are still the captain of the Lexx and one of Xev's dearest of friends. You too will find peace as this final adventure comes to it's close. My friendship is with you." He looked at the Dalinoreans who were still on one knee with their heads bowed, " And to you Dalinoreans of the High Council, thank you for helping my friends to see me again. And thank you for protecting them since I no longer can." He finally looked down at 790 who was hovering next to him with heart-eyescreens. "And you 790. My love too is with you" and with that he vanished.
"He's gone,” Stanley said. "Yes he is Stanley. Gone... Again." Xev spoke through tears. 790 let out a loud wail. The Dalinoreans finally stood up. Thunder walked over to Prince and Priest, who were again playing cards. He made a few signals with his hands and they disappeared. Stanley looked a little shocked, "What happened to them?" "They are safely aboard the Lexx back behind their glass dome" Snow answered. "Well why did you bring them down here in the first place?" he asked. "Because it was important for Prince to see Kai. It will help to achieve the cure" Stanley didn't quite understand what Snow meant so he decided to let it go. "And now my friends we must begin walking towards that mountain" She pointed towards a small bluish mountain which had a large circle on it. "Yea I was wondering, how did we get down here and how are we going to get back?" Xev asked. "When we passed through the portal in the Lexx we instantly were beamed down into the outerzone. The Lexx is still right next to the portal, stationary waiting for us. Now we have to walk to that mountain and I and my two brothers will call us back aboard the Lexx before the portal closes." Xev was satisfied with the answer.
They walked towards the mountain and when they reached it they formed a circle. The Dalinoreans began chanting and before they knew it they were all aboard the Lexx again. "Well Xev, we made it." Stanley said incredibly pleased with what they had just accomplished. "Yes we are." She responded sounding a little sad that she had to say goodbye to Kai again. Stan could see she was upset so he went over to her and gave her a hug, which she gladly accepted. 790 and the Dalinoreans were already scanning the universe to find the Prince of Dalinor. Prince and Priest sat behind the glass dome still playing cards.

Wow, this is really good! I like the explanations of how Prince came to be like he is. It's nice to see that his friends got to spend more time with him and hopefully will be at more peace with themselves.

I've always maintained that Lexx seasons are like Trek films in reverse: in this case, the odd numbered seasons are generally stronger.  After plowing through the first ten chapters, I can say without hesitation that based on what I've seen so far, this story would make for one hell of a fifth season.  Definitely anxious to see where this is going!
