001: The Titan
-----

____________________
... GOZIRA could feel everything in his surrounding. Most prominently, the irritating and repeated assault of a no doubt ill-informed pest upon a dorsal fin of his lower-back. He was no stranger to the vandals, who sought to damage portions of his dorsal fins in order to devour them, mistaking the organic matter to be some nature of Reiatsu-rich ore to be mined from a black mountain for their nourishment. It was a pointless endeavor that only served to increase the frequency in which Gozira was forced the shed and regrow the abused dorsal plates. While the assaults were common, presently the titan Hollow detected only a single offender. There was a greater number of Hollows in the area and more incoming. Still, the black mountain remained motionless. It was important that he conserved his energy...

Days if not months since this eternal game of "tag" had begun, Everything eventually became a blur. Yuki running for their life just kept running and running chased by multiple hollows behind them. Every day that had gone by another large hollow would hear the commotion and join in soon there was a sizeable group following Yuki aiming for their delectable reiatsu. Eventually, Yuki saw something in the distance, something that would help her maybe escape from those chasing after them, A large mountain.

Knowing it was the only chance they had of escape they had started to run towards the mountain in the distance the size of which just seemed unbelievably huge. There were no other mountains that they knew of in Hueco Mundo, so it was a little off-putting how large it was. It was unnatural to the surrounding landscape. The more Yuki ran, the larger the mountain seemed to get but never seemed to get any closer just how significantly large was this mountain and what was it secret?. Yuki ran for a few more hours or even a full day before she even reached the base of the mountain; however, Yuki was not alone.

Yuki decided to take her chances and started running up the mountain with the group of hollows following behind the base of the mountain was covered purely in the sand of Hueco Mundo so it must have been here for a long time. The mountain base was extremely tough to climb up as the sand removed any solid footing one could have. Yuki used her wings as support pushing her up whenever she lost her footing. This steep sand caused the majority of the hollows following to fall back down to the beginning destroying their morale and giving up the chase. However, the larger and more experienced hollows kept chasing Yuki up the mountain. 

Yuki finally reached a point after a long time running where black rock-like formations started to appear in the ground and would slowly become more prominent as they got higher followed by what seemed like smaller mountains around on top of the already massive mountain. Yuki noticed something strange; however, the black substance they were running on felt hollow like not like the sand they were standing on before. This confused Yuki but they didn't dwell on it for too long she had to keep trying to escape from those chasing her. Yuki would run around the mini-mountains, jump down large cracks in the ground and even go through what seemed like giant holes in the mountain formations like someone had been collecting the rocks, However, it looks long abandoned from what she could tell. Eventually, there were only two hollows left chasing her. Both of these two were the original hollows that had been hunting her from the beginning. 

Exhausted from what seemed like months of running Yuki collapsed and so did her two chasers they all laid there motionless. Yuki wanting to take this chance to learn more about this mountain closes her eyes and focuses on the reiatsu coming off the ground and mountains she notices that all of it was connected and it was moving around as if it was alive. This shocked Yuki but also gave her a brilliant plan. Reach the summit and see if her theory was correct. Yuki was about three-quarters of the mountain at this point. 

Yuki then before the other hollows had fully rested started to run the best she could completely fatigued aiming for the summit of the mountain. If it was even a mountain at all.


OOC|| Hehe, Ran up your mountain butt~

002: The Titan Part 2
-----

____________________
... GOZIRA remained still with the passage of the days. Generally dismissive --not so entirely by choice-- of the trivial happenings of the hundreds of tiny critters that surrounded him. "Dismissive" but not unaware. Although, if Gozira was being entirely forthright his cavalier attitude towards the creatures that took temporary and in some cases permanent abode on his his back, in the obsidian canyons and valleys of his dorsal plates, was rooted more in his own inability to stop the critters in any meaningful manner. The titan Hollow was unconcerned because as far as he was concerned there was nothing he could about the fact. He could roar loud enough the tremble a continent, that would surely scare them off, or perhaps simply rolling over and crushing them all would do the trick. Dramatic solutions indeed but worse yet they were terribly temporary. Gozira could roar or roll over, but then he'd be exhausted and have to sleep and how long would he sleep then a decade, a century, a millennium? The specific duration didn't matter. What mattered was that however long the time he spent it slumber it would surely be long enough for the white sands to semi-submerge him and for the hundreds of critters to make a habitat out of his colossal being. Admittedly, it wasn't entirely bad. On the contrary, Gozira understood that he'd so far avoided regression from his Adjuchas form almost entirely thanks to the smaller and weaker  Hollows that unbeknownst to themselves provided the black mountain with the bare minimum of Reiatsu needed to maintain his evolution. In fact, Gozira was simultaneously annoyed and appreciative of the tiny avian Hollow that insisted on repeatedly blasting Cero at one of his dorsal fins. Despite her intentions, she likely failed to realize her attack was having the opposite effect now. It was much easier to weaken Gozira's dorsal plates while he was unconscious, but while he was awake the unique energy-absorption properties and innate healing factor in the obsidian plates was active. It would take the little Hollow years to even leave a scratch on the dorsal plates, that was to say nothing of the time it would take for her to break a shard of it off.

A much more peculiar occurrence was the small Hollow making the exhausting and very dangerous journey up his back for no obvious reason. Initially, she'd been on the run from a band of larger Hollows that sought to make a meal of her. However the prolonged proximity to Gozira combined with the physical exhaustion of chasing the little nimble Hollow had left the band drained as the fell unconscious in their tracks it was clear to Gozira that they would not wake again. The black mountain was a harsh and unforgiving terrain that only the strongest survived. Gozira was certain of their fate, he'd seen it play count countless hundreds of times before. Their bodies would become the sustenance of other nearby Hollows that found them, if not, their Spiritual essence would be absorbed into Gozira himself. The Titan Hollow was curious, he wondered why the tiny Hollow had not taken the opportunity to feed on the larger Hollows itself. Instead it choose to abandon an invaluable meal to in favor of the nigh impossible endeavor to summit his back. He imagined that something must be odd about the little frosty critter, at the very least it seemed motivated by something besides the overwhelming and insatiable need to consume. Utter madness! What other purpose could there be to this wretched existence besides voracious consumption?

"Snow-runner", Gozira would call the most strange critter for now. A fitting name given the Hollow's bizarre ability to trail frost and pure white snow in her speedy path. "What are you thinking little Snow-runner? How far will you go?", the Titan wondered curiously.

As Snow-runner traversed up Gozira's back she would begin to feel the pull of the dorsal fins with increasing severity the higher and farther she climbed. Like a magnetic force the dorsal fins would pull at her from every direction. Gozira silently and motionlessly observed Snow-runner's struggle in astonishment. He abandoned thought of all other aspects of the world and focused entirely on the little Hollow that would dare march proudly towards certain death. He wondered if Snow-runner would succeed but was more convinced of and anticipating Snow-runner's failure and demise.

Climbing up slowly and exhausted, Yuki was having issues staying awake, let alone keeping her footing. Every step felt like her legs would give way, and she would fall and never get up again. It was like the whole world was above her pushing down upon her. But through pure shear will she kept walking up the 'Mountain' in hopes to see her goal though. As she was walking up, she noticed there was no more sand, not even a speck. Under her foot felt rough but yet smooth almost like scales, it was unusual. This helped solidify her notion that this mountain wasn't a mountain but something else but what? Surely a hollow like herself couldn't be this large. The scales were more comfortable to climb than the sand-covered areas as there was more grip to hold onto with her claws making it easier to take small breaks to gain her energy without falling over and losing her battle. "Just watch. I'm going to do this."

Regaining her energy with the small breaks she was taking after every few steps began to run again, her claws slightly scraping the scales she was climbing on causing her to gain grip to push off from causing her to pick up more speed then when she was on the sandy portion of the mountain. The higher she climbed up, the windier it became she would often have to use her wings as a counter to the strong winds to help her keep right as she was running. Flying was out of the question for her with how recently she grew them. Her exhaustion was too much even to lift her off the ground. This indeed was a deathly journey for her one wrong step; she would tumble to her death down the mountain as the sides were becoming steeper and she was miles above the base of the mountain she has been climbing for weeks now. However, Yuki was finally able to see the top of the mountain in her view and the sight of it was the only thing that was now keeping her going. 

As Yuki was climbing higher, the weight of the world was getting heavier on her legs; this was no longer just mere exhaustion she felt there was something more unnatural about it. Yuki would walk slightly to one of the "dorsal fins" that still look like mini mountains to her and feels the weight increasing heaps on her body as she got closer and decided it was best to keep to the middle ground she was climbing from as it as the lighter of the paths. If she were to continue walking closer to the fins, she would surely be unable to make it to the top. The weight alone would cause her to spend her energy before reaching her end goal. 

After a deathly journey, she had finally reached the summit she had hope to see with full determination. Her tired and broken gave way underneath her, and she would fall face first. Her vision became blurry and would start panting like her body was gasping for air from how Exhausted she was. Her body was having a hard time staying alive from the loss of energy she had pushed her self to the brink. If she didn't find some food and fast, she would surely die. She would then look up at what looked like a pile of broken rocks that seem to have been gathered from the mini-mountains below and slowly crawled her way towards them as she feels strong reiatsu radiating from them.

Yuki would munch of these rocks they were surprisingly delightful. They definitely tasted sweet like most hollows she ate in the past which helped confirmed her theory that this mountain was, in fact, a hollow. She would then hear footsteps behind her and looked at the slowly imposing hollow that would dare walk up to her while she was eating after such a long journey. With annoyance within her eyes, she would speak with a raspy and angry tone towards hollow near her. "What trouble have you bought for me? You're obviously here because of me. Gasp! Don't tell me? Were these yours?" Yuki would have a sarcastic look in her eyes as if her true wrathful nature that was hiding behind her mask was showing due to the lack of energy to hold it back.

OOC|| Sorry for the long wait <3
