Up from his metaphorical perch above the world, Lunar doesn't see much at all.

Well, that's a lie. He doesn't see much interesting.

The smoke and fire don't hinder his eagle eyes, of course, but there isn't much to see beyond that either. The village is intact, or at least as intact as it was before the meteor struck, and his friends seem to be in much the same spot he left them at. There is definitely magic leaking off the griffons below; apparently their claim of divine protection had some basis in reality. The magic seems to be continuously flowing in from the stars, but lessening every moment and not actually reaching their intended targets. The faucet of the gods, so to speak, has been turned off. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say it have been clogged.

Up on the mountain, Nihl shakes his still-wounded head as the shafts of light surrounding it slowly fade into nothingness. "I..." he paused. "If I had to guess, we'd be in a lot of trouble." He pauses for a moment. "I think it is for the best that we go confirm for ourselves."

This said, the leader of E.C.H.O. nods back to his troops, who begin following him down the now-battered mountainside. The zebras, still dazed from magical blowback, blink rapidly and cannot for the moment do much else.

Wandering Eye nods and follows Nihl - at a respectable distance, and keeping an eye out for Scorch.

Lunar just heads to the closest ponies he could get too that he knew from where he was in the sky.

It's a slow buzz from that point onwards.

Nopony's in much shape to fight - physically fine though they may be, there's psychological trauma and sheer dizziness to consider. The griffins seem...almost ashamed as they retreat, swift as the sky. Which is to say, moderately slow, relatively speaking, and yet when you look again all those clouds are suddenly different.

There are dead. There are many dead. The wave of magic didn't fix everything.

The 'wave of magic' is the first thing to investigate - the members of our intrepid party of unlikely heroes join with E.C.H.O. forces (after a moderate amount of sitcom-styled misunderstanding) and head off in the direction of the meteor's impact. It's still blowing up smoke and fire, but a moderately amount of thaumakinesis takes care of that.

Nihl reaches the edge of the crater first and...seems to hesitate. "Hmm. Well." He pauses, looking over the edge. "Yes, that's...precisely what I expected. And feared. Today is...a historic day." He turns to the rest of the group. "I'd say 'see for yourself', but that would be rude to our blind acquaintance. Instead, I shall simply come out and say that the Elements of Harmony were inside the meteor and are now glowing a faint rainbow color at the bottom of this crater."

"What?" Wandering Eye says incredulously. He heads over to the edge to take a look for himself. Staring at the glowing objects in the crater, he tried to speak again, but couldn't quite find the words.

The Elements of Harmony, the most powerful magic known to Equestria.

They are there.

They are glowing.

They are vaguely circular and not at all in their "proper" shapes.

Wandering Eye continued staring for a moment before he snapped back to reality. The reality was that he was surrounded by ECHO soldiers. He turned his head to Nihl. "This seems like too much of a coincidence... Nihl, why did you pick this time and place to go to?"

Nihl does not respond for several moments.

"Leave the Elements alone and teleport out," he finally says, obviously not to Wandering Eye. "Distasteful though they are, they are yet necessary. Temper." Without any hesitation, the assemblage of E.C.H.O. unicorns blinks out, magic shining as they do. Nihl is left behind. Only now, it seems, does he deign to speak to Wander. "It is a shame we couldn't meet in person once again - perhaps bury some hatchets left over from our last meeting - but it's time to move forward now."

This being said, "Nihl" turns into sand and crumbles to the ground.

Lunar zaps Nihl as he turns into sand... Just to make him feel like he tried to attack him before he left and to remind him that somebody who was removed form history is back and upset with him... AND STILL WANTS ANSWERS... Well that last part isn't clear in his message but the Hippogriff knows that Nihl knows that factoid about him. "Well... WE gotta find a way to follow after them... Or we're going to die here as nothing more then minor footnotes of what we knew was history. And ECHO does more who knows what to mold our time into whatever Nihl's ideal timeline be." The Hippogriff didn't know for a fact that was what was going on... But it's what he'd be doing if he had the power & the forces to go into the past and do things there to make whatever would be most ideal and junk.

Wandering Eye stares at the pile of sand for a long moment, not sure how to react. "Well."

He then turns to the Elements of Harmony in the crater, and slowly began walking down towards them. When he reaches them, he reaches out with his magic, attempting to "feel" them, and their power. "Now, where do we go from here..." he says softly, almost to himself... or almost to the Elements.

Magic...

There's a pulsing feeling in the back of Wander's skull, or maybe his esophagus - either or. This sensation is followed by a low thrumming noise, slowly escalating. Wander doesn't really hear it, however, as much as he sees it: noise that creates light.

And there's something wrong with the noise. Something Luna once said flashes through the mind almost as if summoned: "static in the background magic of Equestria" or something like that.

Nothing has happened, but something is about to...there. Behind the volcano and a great distance off.

Spoiler:
To be absolutely clear, no one except Wandering Eye can see the magic.

Wandering Eye jumps around, and gallops back up the crater towards his allies. "We need to head out... something's happening, or going to happen, on the other side of the volcano, and I don't know what."

"Err... What about the elements? They're like... The founding of our homeland... Or helped it become what we recall it as... Can't we... Like try to use them to follow or something? They're like super-powerful-godly-level magics I think?" Lunar suggests unsure what else options they had to work with. Far as he was aware they had no leads to work with...

Wandering Eye turns back to Lunar. "We don't even know if the Elements have that kind of power... I scanned them myself, and all I got was this... magical static." He nods towards the volcano. "And it's coming from that direction."

Still speechless from Nihl's betrayal and disappearing act, Scorch starts digging through the sand left behind...

Upon hearing Lunar's insistence, and seeing his dragon companion digging around, Wandering Eye sighs. "Well, a few moments won't matter for something that far away. Hold on a moment."

He trots back over to the elements and attempts to analyze them. Do they have the properties Lunar is hoping for?

At the center of the sand is a glowing mote. Even as it is observed, however, it winks out, leaving another speck of sand behind.

Scorch finds nothing else.

The Elements of Harmony have a lot of properties, most of which Wandering Eye can only begin to touch, let alone fully fathom.

Still, Wander comes away with the knowledge that the Elements may be pointed at a number of problems and reasonably expected to solve them. Time travel may certainly be possible - lesser spells have accomplished the same - but the specific pattern necessary for the quilt, to knit a metaphor, eludes.

Wandering Eye shakes his head. "The Elements may be the most powerful magic known to ponykind, but the nature of their magic eludes me - as it has countless other ponies, I'm sure. I'm not sure we'll be able to use them to solve our problem..." He then turns and moves up the slope of the crater, towards his companions. "I still say we head towards the... thing... that's about to happen. I get the feeling it has something to do with what's going on."

Wandering Eye feels himself get lifted into the air again by an enraged Scorch. "What are we waiting for?! he calls out to the group right next to him, "The sooner we get home the sooner I can PUNCH that MOTHERBUCKER in the FACE!" He then takes to the air and flies in some direction (if Wandering Eye pointed in the direction he felt the magic thing, then that one, otherwise a random one until he corrects Scorch either on or off camera)...

(Wandering Eye indicated the direction of the volcano, but didn't actually point)

Once again, Wandering Eye finds himself lifted up - an increasingly frequent occurrence, it seemed. Still, he isn't going to complain - not while flying through the air, anyway. "Uh, that way," he says, pointing a hoof towards the disturbance.
