The Mysterious Disease, Crystalscourge

By Catlover33
In recent years, everything has been peaceful until today. A new disease was recently discovered that is now known as Crystalscourge. So far, there have only been three confirmed cases. All three of the people who have the disease are young males who are from the Final Fantasy series. Not much is known about this mysterious disease as of yet but there are some symptoms of this disease that have been recorded.

Symptoms of Crystalscourge

The victim’s hair will start to turn white at first however this is only during the first minor stages of the disease. It only gets worse from there as next, the victim’s blood will start to slowly crystalize which will result in something that isn’t good. The victim’s eye color will also change to a paler version of their original eye color and they will become noticeably paler in appearance. The final stage of this disease will result in the victim unwillingly enter a death like sleep. The final stage happens when every drop of blood in the victim’s body has crystallized.

Research Facilities

These facilities are where those who have Crystalscourge are taken in hopes that a cure will be found for this disease. The people who are brought to these facilities are treated with kindness and affection in order to keep them calm. Each day, those who have Crystalscourge will have a small amount of their uncrystallized blood drawn by workers at the facilities in order to help find a cure. There are other tests that are run as well in order to get a better understanding of the Crystalscourge disease.

The Final Stage

As stated before, the final stage of Crystalscourge forces the disease’s victims to enter a deathlike sleep. However, it also forcibly removes the victim’s soul from their body. To help with this, the staff at the Research Facilities have created artificial bodies that are meant to house those disembodied souls while their original bodies are kept in a special location so that one day, the effects that the Crystalscourge had created can be treated.

Tidus was sitting at the windowsill and ended up sighing. He wanted to go outside but it was raining. He still had to get ready for the day however he didn’t know about how he had Crystalscourge and how the disease was starting to affect him. He lived with Vaan and Bartz who both also had the disease but neither of them knew about it yet.

He went into the bathroom to get ready for the day. He freshened up before he looked in the mirror and screamed. Some of his hair had started to turn as white as the snow. “This isn’t good.” He said softly. He quickly ran out of the bathroom in a panic. What he didn’t know was that the authorities had arrived to drag him out of the house.

“Ti? Are you okay?” Vaan said.

“No I’m not and your hair is starting to turn white. That’s not good.” Tidus said.

“Oh really? Well your hair is starting to turn white as well.” Vaan said.

“I know. I was even supposed to have a Blitzball tournament today but now I guess that I can’t make it.” Tidus said.

“Not only that, we’re stuck here.” Bartz said.

“That’s bad. I guess that we’ll have to wait it out.” Tidus said.

Not long after that, the authorities burst into the house and grabbed Tidus, Vaan and Bartz. They then loaded the three on a truck and then drove to one of the research facilities where they dropped off those three. The three were then quickly ushered into the facility by some of the staff.

All three young males seemed to be nervous about their new situation however they all didn’t try to get away. They were led down the hall where they then changed into outfits that looked surprisingly similar to a kimono except for the fact that they were a pale blue in coloration. At least they weren’t only in their boxers. The three then exited the bathrooms and were led to one room.

Akemi was tensed as she walked through the streets. Everyone had thought she had the disease because of how white her hair was. She shivered as she walked the cold rainy streets of the village. Akemi was so scared to run into the authorities she always kept her hoodie hood up so no one could see her pure white hair. She had always been so skittish but this is the worse she had always been. Akemi had lived on the streets now for a while she was so unsure of if she had the disease because she couldn't tell by the first symptoms because of her hair color. Akemi bit her lip as she looked around frantically.

As she walked around she straight on ran into someone knocking her hood off her head. Her hair was shown and everything now. [+red ''Shoot! i-im so sorry..''] she muttered as she looked up at the person. The person looked so angry. She started to back away slowly.

Akemi started to run for it before she started being chased by those of authority. She started to shiver a bit more as she collapsed for exhaustion.

“I just want to go home...” Tidus said softly. He sighed and bit his lip. He was taken by some of the staff for a blood test which he was anything but happy about. He started to hiss and growl. He didn’t like being handled however soon, the staff had taken a bit of his blood before they applied a pressure bandage to his arm to prevent the site where the needle pierced his vein from bleeding anymore. After that, he was brought back to the room where he was supposed to stay with Vaan and Bartz.

Bartz and Vaan also had some of their blood taken. Both of them were much more calmer than Tidus was, however. They didn’t hiss or put up a fight.

“It wasn’t all that bad. In fact, I didn’t feel any pain while my blood was being drawn.” Vaan said. He looked at Bartz who had said the exact same thing.

Akemi was soon taken into custody and taken to the research facility. She put up a fight but failed and was thrown into the back of a large scary van. She started to cry as she was taken into the building. [+red ''Please!! I'm not sick!!''] Akemi screamed as she was dragged in. She wanted to be let go and be on her way. Akemi was freaked out once they gave her a change of clothes and brought her back to take her blood. She was terrified of needles being near her.
Catlover33Tidus   1y ago

“I need some sleep...” Tidus said softly. He curled up next to Vaan before he fell asleep. He was rather tired and only wanted to get some sleep for now.

“Looks like he’s asleep... I wonder just how long it will be until everything starts going south.” Vaan said softly. He looked at Tidus who had curled up next to him.

“We shouldn’t wake him up then...” Bartz said softly.

Akemi clawed one of the nurses as they came at her with the needle to draw her blood. [+red ''Stay away!!!''] she hissed as she tried to run away from them. Akemi's ears were droopy as a sign of her being scared. She looked for a place to stay hidden for a while. Akemi started to panic.
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan had decided to gently pet Tidus. “He’s so cute when he’s asleep.” He said softly. He ended up smiling when Tidus started to purr. If anything, he was a little surprised by it at first.

Akemi soon noticed people and got alarmed over seeing them but they looked harmless. She shakily went up to them unsure of their intentions. [+red ''D-do y-you know a w-way out of h-here?..''] she stuttered
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Unfortunately, my friends and I all have Crystalscourge so we can’t leave. The people here are only trying to research the disease.” Vaan said.

One of the staff members walks towards Akemi and gave her a swift apology. They apologized for the actions of the authorities and explained that she didn’t have Crystalscourge but Vaan, Bartz and Tidus did.

[+red ''Re-really?..''] she asked them before the staff came up to her. Akemi was still tensed up as she looked at the lady. [+red ''I-i forgive you guys..''] she muttered as she looked around looking for a way out still.
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Yes, we do.” Vaan said. He had a solemn expression on his face.

The staff asked Akemi if she wanted to help them research the Crystalscourge disease.

Bartz stayed mostly still and silent. He looked at Tidus who was still asleep.

[+pink ''How do you catch it or what causes it?..''] She asked curiously

Her eye widened some ''Really?! i would l-love to!'' Akemi looked at the staff member. She was still slightly nervous but she felt some what better now.
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Well, I don’t know but I guess that it only affects me, Bartz and Tidus for some reason.” Vaan said.

Bartz looked at Tidus who were asleep. “They might check to see if he’s still alive since he’s all curled up.” He said.

The staff member smiled warmly at Akemi and then looked at Vaan, Bartz and Tidus.

''How does that work?'' Akemi had asked. She looked at the staff member ''Would you like me to check up on him?''

(I give up on the color lol)
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Well we don’t exactly know how it works.” Vaan said.

The staff member would have nodded before leaving.

“He’s not going to wake up is he?” Bartz said.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

''Hm..'' She said quietly as she walked up to Bartz once the staff member left. ''Im not sure if he is gonna wake up.. He could just be really tired.''
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Well, hopefully he’s still alive. Also, did they end up taking your vitals when you arrived?” Vaan asked Akemi. He ended up shivering for some reason.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi shook her head ''I got too freaked out and I ran.. That's how I need up here in this area.'' She told them. ''Im sure your friend is still alive'' she added
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Well, Tidus is just a heavy sleeper in general.” Vaan said before he ended up laughing. He had remembered the time when Bartz woke up Tidus by tickling him. He remembered how Tidus wasn’t too pleased during that day.

''Ah, that makes sense'' Akemi said. ''Just wait a bit and he should wake up soon than'' She said as she let out a small sigh.
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“That’s the plan. In fact, I’m hoping that he wakes up soon.” Vaan said softly. He looked at Tidus who was still unconscious.

Akemi nodded a bit as she looked at them once more. She rubbed her eyes yawning a bit.
Catlover33Tidus   1y ago

Tidus started to slightly move in his sleep. A very small portion of his blood was starting to crystallize and another chunk of his hair had turned white.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi stayed quiet as she looked at Tidus. ''Is it normal for his blood to crystalize?'' She asked quietly
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“No... that’s not normal at all...” Vaan said.

“C-could it be that he’s entering the second stage of Crystalscourge.” Bartz said.

''I'll go grab some one else'' Akemi said as she went to look for someone
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Alright. We’ll stay here to make sure that Tidus doesn’t get any worse.” Vaan said.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi ran into another staff member and explained what was going on
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan was busy trying to make sure that Tidus was still breathing and ended up sighing. He looked at the form of his unconscious friend as a frown formed on his face.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi ran back to them with the news ''It is the second stage of the disease.'' she told them.
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Some of the staff immediately rushed over to where Tidus was. They brought him back to his room.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi went back to the others to check in on them once more
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan was patting Bartz on the head in order to completely calm him down. “It’s going to be okay.” He said softly.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

''He is in safe hands.'' Akemi told them ''Your friend will be fine..''
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“That’s a relief. I don’t want for that idiot to die.” Vaan said. He ended up sighing softly.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi gave them a soft smile. ''Well i'll be back here in a bit''
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Alright. We’ll be waiting for you.” Vaan said softly.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

''Alrighty.'' Akemi started to walk off
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan continued to pat Bartz on the head.

She sighed a bit as she looked around
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan continued to pat Bartz on the head.

Akemi asked the staff what else she had to do
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan ended up yawning and fell asleep.

The staff only told Akemi to escort Vaan and Bartz back to their rooms.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

Akemi nodded before heading bad to Vaan and Bartz ''I'm here to take you two to your rooms''
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“That would be nice. We both kind of share a room with Tidus.” Vaan said.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

She nodded a bit as she led them to the rooms. They all sorta connected the three together so they wouldn't be apart from eachother
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

Vaan walked over to his bed and yawned. “It looks just like our room back home.” He said.

“It is isn’t it? Tidus should be here too.” Bartz said.
Sf_PappyAkemi Hinode   1y ago
Hazard On Heels

''Tidus is in a different room right now so he could be tested.'' Akemi told them
Catlover33Vaan   1y ago

“Alright. I guess that he had to be tested for some good reason.” Vaan said.

Akemi had nodded and walked back out of the room to let them get comfortable
