Quest of Time II is a fan fiction story written by Chakor Channing and a sequel to the 2013 fan fiction story Quest of Time. The story began in the works in March 2015 and was finished on May 10th, 2015.
After having had his army of gremlins fail him the first time, Shadow creates Venom and Carnage, two symbiotes, to steal the Staff of Time. With Frank, the alien who defeated the gremlins the first time, banished to Earth, Shadow hires a space pirate named Brak to start an attack on the spaceway (a futuristic vision of a highway) as a distraction for the other aliens, leaving the Staff of Time unguarded.
Stealing the Staff
Venom and Carnage arrived on the planet where the staff was hidden via a portal opened by Shadow, where they unexpectedly found two remaining grey alien guards who immediately opened fire on them. The laser guns used by the guards proved to have no effect on the two symbiotes and Venom killed them both, suffocating them by forcing symbiote ooze down their throats. Much to its disliking, Venom found Carnage attempting to destroy what appeared to be a monument built for extraterrestrial religion. Venom, disgusted with Carnage straying away from focus on its mission, started arguing with Carnage and ordered him to continue searching for the Staff of Time. Unwillingly, Carnage agreed and the two continued their search.
Venom and Carnage soon found the Staff of Time hidden in an underground chamber on the planet, and Carnage immediately tried to steal the staff. Venom stopped Carnage and warned its partner that there might be traps. Venom decided to steal the staff and dodged the traps set by the aliens. Having made it past the traps, Venom took the Staff of Time and escaped from the chamber with Carnage.
Aliens vs. Brak
The grey aliens arrive at the spaceway after a distress call is sent by the space police. When the aliens arrive, they find Brak robbing the banks and shooting up the spaceway. Brak kept the aliens at bay with several of his weapons, including a sonic boom canon. Brak also blows up the flying saucers that the grey aliens arrived in, leaving them stranded on the spaceway.
Only armed with small ray guns, the aliens decide to wait until Brak runs out of ammunition to attack him. With the aliens unable to defeat him, Brak makes communication with Shadow regarding the status of the Staff of Time. Shadow replies that Venom and Carnage have arrived on the planet where the staff is hidden, and that he needs Brak to hold off the aliens a little while longer.
Venom and Carnage Report
Now on the surface of the planet again, Venom made contact with Shadow via a portal that allowed them to see each others' location. Shadow told Venom to return to the Chamber of Time with Carnage via the portal they used to transport themselves to the planet. Venom agreed, and it was not long before Carnage started to destroy the monuments again. Venom simply grabbed Carnage by the throat and dragged its partner into the portal with him, returning them to the Chamber of Time.
While Brak is still keeping the aliens at bay with his firepower, one of the aliens, named Mike, gets an idea to lure Brak away from his spaceship. Brak stops shooting for a few minutes and loads the money that he stole from the banks into his ship, but Mike shouts out insults about Brak, which causes him to shoot at Mike.
While Brak is chasing Mike, the remaining aliens destroy the lock to Brak's ship's storage compartment and take the stolen money, planning on returning it to the banks. The aliens also shoot Brak's ship, destroying the engine. Brak eventually shoots Mike, severely wounding him. With his ship now destroyed and having used the last of his ammunition on Mike, Brak is arrested by the space police. It is only until after Brak is arrested that the aliens realize he had no reason to be attacking the spaceway, and they return to the alien planet to find the Staff of Time gone.
When Venom and Carnage arrive at the chamber, Venom reports their success in retrieving the Staff of Time, but Carnage, who has the staff, decides to betray Shadow and Venom by taking the staff for itself. Claiming it has a future of more "potential", Carnage uses the staff to open a wormhole. Where Carnage plans to escape to through the wormhole is never revealed. Venom fights Carnage for the staff, only for Carnage to destroy a column in the chamber which collapses on Venom. Shadow tries to stop Carnage from escaping through the wormhole, but Carnage uses the power of the staff to overpower Shadow. Venom recovers and throws the column that collapsed on it at Carnage. The column collapses on Carnage, and Venom takes the staff for Shadow.
When the aliens arrive at the chamber, Shadow starts opening another wormhole with the staff while Venom fights the aliens. The aliens' ray guns have no affect on Venom, who easily knocks multiple aliens unconscious. One of the aliens stole Brak's sonic boom canon, and he uses it on Venom. Vulnerable to the intense sound, the Venom symbiote is weakened when the canon is used, allowing the aliens to get closer to Shadow. Shortly after a lengthy battle between the aliens and Shadow, Venom recovers. But Carnage recovers from his earlier battle with Venom and the two symbiotes fight again. While Venom and Carnage are distracted by fighting, the aliens throw the two symbiotes into the wormhole opened by the staff, leaving Shadow with the aliens.
Shadow claims that the aliens won't stop the entity this time, but Shadow also makes its plans unclear. The aliens attempt to stop Shadow by shooting at the entity with Brak's sonic boom canon. The sonic booms seem to weaken the entity and the aliens take the staff, but the wormhole still remains open. Not knowing how to close the wormhole, the aliens have to continue using the sonic boom canon to hold off Shadow. Eventually the wormhole closes by itself and Shadow seems to disappear with it. Not knowing if Shadow is gone for good, the aliens leave the chamber and take the staff, hiding it away somewhere currently unknown to Shadow and the entity's pawns.
- Quest of Time II and Kamalia vs. Shredder are the only fan fiction stories so far to exclude the presence of Frank.
- Venom and Carnage are the characters who serve as the "smart one and dumb/distracted one" cliche.
- Brak appears as his original counterpart in the 1966 Space Ghost cartoon. Therefore, in this reality, his parodied counterparts don't exist.
- This fan fiction story reveals that all of the grey aliens aren't identical to Frank. Frank is somewhat chubby and short, while a majority of the other greys are slender and tall.
