The 2 end up getting to know a small bit about each other before the show begins only for Ghost to react oddly to the false summoners. Flames embedded into him as he tries his best to keep his memory. He soon finds himself and Grimm intertwined. But he had had something the others didn't understand.

Ghost's journey leads him to uncap something he's been holding onto for a long time. The glass beginning to overflow. 2 higher beings only growing stronger with the desired flames. What will happen and why does Hornet have a strange feeling Ghost is loosing himself.

    Summary

    “Once there was light! I cannot remember it!” the Seer babbled. The Radiance waved from behind. “I do not know what the light was! I have forgotten the light! If only I could remember the light! What is the light? I do not know! I once did! But now I do not know a light! If only I knew-”

    “I’m over here,” said the Radiance.

    “-what the light was! I wonder what is a light! I once basked in a light! Where is the light! Who is the light! When was the light?” The Radiance facepalmed.

    “B,” said the Nightmare King as he floated down the hall carrying a bunch of stupid guitars and a stinky piano. The Seer gasped.

    “WHAT IS LIGHT? WHO IS WHEN? LIGHT!!” shrieked the Seer, “ARE YOU A LIGHT?” The Nightmare King looked confused, then dropped the guitars on her head, picked them up, and walked away. The Seer gasped again.

    “IT IS LIGHT!” she screeched as she picked up a piece of Nightmare Essence and shaped it into a foot. The Radiance rolled her eyes before floating away.

    Summary

    You believed that eternal meant what it was supposed to mean. The curtains closed and you and Grimm took your place ruling over Hallownest for a year, then a decade, and as time passed to you… It felt like just yesterday you and your love had saved the kingdom of bug and beast. Balancing the power of the land much like it had thousands of years prior. Hallownest was finally eternal… Well, no longer.

    With at least a month before Dusk is planned to marry Princess Elina of the Pyneroot Kingdom, you take time away to help your daughter Dawn learn the ways of the Dream Realm. Though to your fear, something is horribly wrong, and you begin to worry over the kingdom's safety. Can you and Grimm remember who you are deep down while also facing the demons of the past? Not just your own, but the past of the kingdom you now claim? As long as you work together, everything should be fine. Right?

    Summary

    Story owned by me and Midnight197 (DA).
    We both wanted to give the Knight a different end. So spoiler warnings.

    The Knight won. They went through all of the Godhome trials and were finally able to set an end to all the infection. But the price paid...
    Hornet wouldn't let him hide in the shadows anyway.
