Land of Timeless Mists.
"Are we finally gonna do this Xan?" Faith asked Xander. He was standing behind Dawn with one hand on her shoulder, while she had her hand on Dawn's other shoulder. This would be their second attempt at getting back home.
The last time Xander had aborted because he remembered something nineteen years earlier. The rest of the team was about to be attacked by a large force of Ice Giants. If this was the case they couldn't afford to arrive exhausted and unconscious like they did when they ported into 'The Land of Timeless Mists.' so the abort. Instead they spent the last year teaching the kids how to channel their cosmic energies to others. Her kids, and Dawn's kids had the ability. The kids had between ten and twenty percent of the energy reserves she and Xander were able to call on. Still between the five kids they were able to get another one hundred and twenty percent.
That energy would feed her, Xander and Dawn. They were hoping it would be enough not to fall face down like the last time.
Loki and Hilda would be coming with only Gram. Fenris had decided to stay on. He said that this was his home, but she could tell that there was something else going on.
"Alex, Jenny and Joyce. Remember stay in your Ice Wolf forms." Xander told his kids.
"But daaad! They're hot." Joyce complained.
"Not where we're going." he told her.
Joyce didn't believe him. He had a tendency to stretch the truth from time to time. Gram put his hands around her and calmed her nerves down. She smiled at him and gave him a quick kiss.
"Boys and girls make sure your gravity guns are pointing up at the sky and try not to hit anything that looks like Jackie, except in 'Red & Gold' that would be..." Clint was interrupted by his oldest.
"Jeez dad we know. Cut it out and take care of your end and we'll take care of ours." phil his oldest complained.
"Yes daddy. Now is so not the time."
"You too Tasha? I'm wounded..." he clutched his chest as if an arrow hit heart.
She laughed, "Silly daddy." she smiled. He always made her laugh.
"Enough. Everyone here?" asked Dawn.
"Yes!" everyone answered back.
"Then we're go..." she started the spell to punch through this dimension to get back to their starting origin in Joitenhiem, and not Earth.
As the energy built up in the portal machine she felt a constant flood of energy from both Xander and Faith replacing the energy she was using up.
She then twisted the handle and the portal opened, "Can anyone hear me?" she called on her Avengers com badge.
"This is the Black Widow. You're loud and clear, be advised that you'll be coming in hot into Ice Charlie territory."
"Nice to hear your voice Nat. Don't shoot the kids." and with that the entire party made the transition from one dimension to the next.
Natasha's warning was right on the money. They came out in downtown Ice Central.
Ice Giant Encampment
"Avengers be advised the party's back and they have re-enforcements with them. I'm sending IDs. Now. Get. Your. Butts. In. Gear!" she demanded.
Still invisible she ran to the group. On the ethereal map she could see that both Xander and Faith were almost cursing on empty.
*Gungnir start re-charging them!* she ordered the spear.
*ALREADY DOING SO! I NEED TO TOUCH THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR A FULL ENERGY TRANSFER!*
Natasha didn't answer, but she increased her speed and went all out. She reached Faith first and became visible as soon as the spear touched her.
"Don't shoot! That's your aunt Tasha!" Clint yelled at he kids.
"Incoming! Get the magic users!" she pointed at he advancing shamans that were already on their way to start their hourly chant.
"As one all gravity canons were pointed at the shamans and with a slight hum they fired as one.
Of the shamans only three survived. They had cast shields instead of opting for attack spells. It was all that saved their lives.
