[At nightfall outside Ethan's house, the entire was surrounded in a red light as a pod came crashing towards his backyard. Ethan was staring from afar. We zoom up to his face where he made an intimidated look and reached his arm for the sky. A badge came flying out of the pod and morphed onto his wrist, creating a watch-like device.]
Ebomnitrix: My name is Ebomnitrix
Kakapokid: I’m Kakapokid5
Runny: Heyo, I’m Runny
Prof Jake: Paradox Multimedia here!
Carth: Hey, this is Carth.
TranswiththePlans: This is Roselina.
Ebomnitrix: And its time to expand your Horizons!
Ebomnitrix: About 7 months ago the crew and I first dropped our first two episodes as a sneak peek, and since then the support for the series has been great so far! Wattpad has reached over hundreds of viewers, and people have loved what we've done with the alien designs and redesigns. And while I can admit our series hasn't been perfect, its been a wild trip so far! And we're only halfway through the first season. Now, the second half of this season is where a ton of things go down. Everybody knows everybody, the main cast knows about Ethan's secret, Ethan has become all the aliens in his set of 10, yet there's still mysteries left to be uncovered. Like what's the name of the watch, is it the Omnitrix? did we actually come up with an original name? Who knows! You'll have to stay tuned to find out. But in the mean time, and for first time viewers let's get a recap!
YOU'VE READ THROUGH THE FIRST TEN EPISODES OF E-10: HORIZONS SO FAR!
BUT BEFORE WE CAN UNVEIL ANY FURTHER, LET'S GIVE YOU FOLKS A RECAP!
Terence: You've got to be kidding me...
Ethan: Let's do it!!!
[The recap begins now]:
Another Day at Horizon Plays
[XLR8 ran past a sign that said “Horizon Arts & Culture” which was mounted in front of the entrance. Before he could slow down completely, XLR8 transformed back into Ethan in a red blur. Ethan realized he was approaching towards an orange haired girl, while still going fast from XLR8's momentum. Eventually, Ethan slammed right into her and everything with black as they both screamed.]
[Ethan opened his eyes. All he saw was a blurry face covering the sun, until it eventually faded and revealed to be Alice staring at him, with the sunlight shining behind her and the leaves on the tree.]
Alice: Hey, are you okay?
Ethan: Yeah... Agh...
[The scene proceeded to move into one of the humanities buildings where the professor was introducing himself to the class.]
Professor Meechum: Good morning, students! I hope you are all ready to begin the new semester.
[Quietly, Ethan and Alice entered the room.]
[We transition to Nikki, Alice, Hannibal and Ethan speaking at the far right of the room in their seats.]
Nikki: We should definitely hang out when we get out of our next class!
Alice: Sure! [Bigger smile] My name’s Alice by the way.
Nikki: Nikki, and the guy speaking below me is Hannibal.
Hannibal: And what did she say your name was?
Ethan: Oh, it’s Ethan.
[We transition to the cafeteria. Ethan tried to move as fast as he could to grab the slices of pizza. Ethan accidentally ran into someone where this time, Ethan slammed the person’s plate into their shirt.]
Ethan: AH! I’m so sorry!
Terence: Agh! Do you know how much money I had to pay for that? Ugh! I’ll just go grab something from the vending machine…
[Terence left the scene as Nikki, Hannibal and Alice walked toward him.]
Nikki: Dang, you are running into all kinds of people today.
Ethan: Heh… yeah.
[We transition to Ethan, Alice, Hannibal and Nikki sitting outside.]
Hannibal: So, I’m gonna put you on the spot here, E. What are you majoring in?
Ethan: Oh. I’m going to create the next generation of cartoons!
Hannibal: Then it looks like we’re going into the same field then.
Ethan: Really? Sweet!
Nikki: Ever since I was 5, I always wanted to become a world famous ballet dancer.
Alice: I haven’t really decided yet.
Nikki: Don’t worry, shugs. You’ll figure it out in no time!
Terence: Yeah, I don’t want people thinking I’m some kind of softy. Everyone’s gonna look at me as someone who likes flowers and taking pictures of everything.
Ethan's Vision Plays
Gi-Kwan: You see, for years now my country has been in war with yours.
Gi-Kwan (Narration): While people have been building nuclear bombs, no one’s been able to do anything except yell at who has the bigger gun. Well, it’s time someone finally acted on it.
[During Gi-Kwan's Narration]:
Scene 1: [Lieutenant Steel put bullets into his gun and cocked it.]
Scene 2: [Gi Kwan's henchman ran towards the solo Echo Echo clone. Echo Echo screamed out a sound wave and it threw the henchman backwards.]
Scene 3: [Gi-Kwan signaled Alex. Alex stood out from the shadows and he smacked Jonathan with a large piece of lumber with a nail through it, he screamed as blood splattered on the ground.]
Ethan (Narration): You sent your men into the SACT, hoping that they would collect you enough alien tech so that it would create…
[During Ethan's Narration]:
Scene 1: [From Nikki’s perspective, everything began to spin from her point of view as Christine (one of Gi-Kwan's henchman) put on a mask. Nikki shut her eyes.]
Scene 2: [Waverider stomped on the ground and created more earth waves. Heatblast landed on the ground and was thrown back by the hit.]
Gi-Kwan (Narration): ...the ultimate weapon that would wipe out half of your country.
[During Gi-Kwan's Narration]:
Scene 1: [We zoom upward and away from Gi-Kwan as they went ahead and went back to work. From the shadows it was revealed his henchman were creating a giant missile.]
[Gi-Kwan made a devious smile.]
E-10 Transformation Plays
[The smoke cloud cleared the area. Alice laying on the ground, began to cough as she wiped some of the fog away and noticed Ethan who stood in front of the rampaging Mechadroid.]
Ethan: Alright, tin can, you may have played your own tricks against peopleBut I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve too...
[Ethan popped up the core of the watch and raised his arm up.]
Ethan: ...about ten of them!
[LODESTAR QUICK-TRANSFORMATION: Magnets started forming around Ethan’s hand to where it transformed into a claw. Then magnets spun around him, surrounding his body in armor covered in lodestone.]
[We cut to Lodestar as he pushed magnetic waves against the Mechadroid. Its cockpit and projector stopped glowing and its full body collapsed to the ground, shutting itself off.]
[We cut again to Lodestar landing at the side of the college. Lodestar fell on his knees and transformed back into Ethan.]
Ethan: Man, I never had to use all that power before...
[To Ethan’s surprise he saw Alice standing above him with her arms crossed.]
[Ethan looked down upset. But to his surprise, Alice made a small chuckle. Ethan looked up to notice that Alice was smiling and giving him her hand.]
Alice: You big idiot.
I'll Protect You Plays
ONE BY ONE, ETHAN HAD TO TELL HIS FRIENDS HIS SECRET
[We transition to Ethan and Alice making conversation inside his house.]
Ethan: Yeah… I’m sorry I had to keep this a secret from you. I mean we just met, I didn’t think we would get into any sort of situation like that.
Alice: No, I’m sorry, I should’ve been more understanding about it. I should’ve respected your privacy and why you couldn’t say anything about it.
[We shift to Alice walking home during the sunset, as the skies were colored dark blue and orange. She was walking on the sidewalk with a fence that lead down a hill towards a beach, with an ocean view. Alice began thinking to herself.]
Alice (Thoughts): The ability to transform into different aliens, he’s going to need someone to protect him from all the harm that is out there.
[We transition to Terence talking to Ethan and Alice at school.]
Terence: Fine, then I guess I’ll have to tell the whole campus your secret.
Ethan: What secret?
Terence: That watch turns you into those monsters. I’m not stupid. Even Clark Kent’s disguise is better than that! Anyway, you’re going to need someone who knows a lot about plants, and I just happen to be your guy. So, am I in?
Ethan: [Groans] Fine.
[We transition to Nikki, Ethan and Alice discussing this at their lunch table outside.]
Nikki: So, that magnetic guy from two months ago, that was you.
Nikki: How long until you were going to tell us?
Ethan: I was never planning on telling anybody until the time came.
[They looked over to see Hannibal and Terence from further away as they were laughing in the background.]
Nikki: How long until we tell him?
Ethan: Give it time, I don’t think now’s the right time to tell him.
Nikki: I know. But, Hannibal’s my best friend, I can’t keep secrets from him.
Alice: Please, just enough time until we can tell him properly.
BUT SOME DIDN'T TAKE IT BETTER THAN OTHERS...
Hannibal (Narration): I can’t believe you would keep a secret like this from me!
[We transition to the five discussing the situation with an angered Hannibal inside Ethan's house.]
Ethan: We wanted to tell you, Hannibal, but the last thing I want is to watch one of my friend’s die right in front of me.
Hannibal: I don’t care if I have a target painted on my back! I want to be able to trust my friends! And if I can’t trust you to tell me everything, then what’s the point?!
[Hannibal stormed off outside.]
[Nikki and Hannibal were finishing discussing this on Ethan's porch.]
Hannibal: I thought I could you trust with everything. Maybe now, I’m not so sure anymore.
Nikki: We wanted to tell you-
Hannibal: Then why didn’t you?
[Tears shed down Nikki’s eyes.]
[Hannibal left the deck and walked away from his house.]
AND IT EVENTUALLY NEARLY COSTED ETHAN'S FRIEND HIS LIFE...
Build-Up Theme Plays
[Hannibal with his hands in his pocket continued walking down the sidewalks at night. He soon passed a light post and the shadow of a mysterious figure appeared surrounding the light. Everything then faded to black with the sounds of a bang.]
Ethan (Narration): Hannibal has been kidnapped by Gi-Kwan.
Scene 1: [Hannibal awoken to see Gi-Kwan standing before him in the light.]
Nikki (Narration cont.): WHAT?!
Alice (Narration cont.): Those guys?!
Scene 2: [Gi-Kwan laughed manically.]
Ethan: I don’t want to drag any of you into this.
Nikki: Ethan, I promise you, nothing is going to happen. So they took Hannibal, and they’re not about to get the rest of us...
Nikki (Narration cont.): ...because we’re going with you to rescue him.
Scene: [At Gi-Kwan's base of operations, Chunks of the ceiling were blown to pieces as more soldiers, hanging onto ropes, dropped to the scene. Meanwhile, Alice and Terence helped Ethan up.]
Time For Action! Plays
[Echo Echo had duplicated an army of his own and they went running into the henchman. As SACT and the henchman were fighting in the background, both by physical contact and by shooting at each other.]
[The scene shifted upstairs to Nikki and Alice, where they saw the chains slowly dragging Hannibal to the lava.]
Hannibal: What the hell are you doing here?
[Nikki and Alice began pulling Hannibal's chains as they talked.]
Nikki: We're here to save you!
[Hannibal was blasted Hannibal out of the chains by Echo Echo's Sonic-Tower attack, and was flown away from the lava pit. Hannibal fell to the ground and struggled to get up. Nikki approached Hannibal as she tried to help him up.]
[Gi-Kwan turned over towards the control panel. He opened the glass case covering the launch button, and slammed it. Everything flashed read as the sirens went off. The henchman ran out of the building for their lives.]
Gi-Kwan (Narration): THIS IS FOR WHAT THE WORLD HAS DONE TO US! THIS IS WORLD PEACE AND TRANQUILITY!
[As Gi-Kwan spoke everything shook inside the base. Lieutenant Steel turned around to notice something was coming from the ground. Gi-Kwan raised his arms in the air, cheering for his success. Echo Echo took a step towards what was coming from the ground, only to reveal a giant rocket making its way up.]
Terence: What’s going on?
Ethan: Gi-Kwan just launched a missile, and we don’t know how to stop it!
Alice: Ethan, you said if there isn’t anything the SACT can do, then it’s up to you, right? Then prove that to us! I know you can do it.
[As everyone had evacuated outside. We switch to Ethan inside as he approached the missile as it was about to take off. Ethan slammed down and transformed into Four Arms in a green light.]
The Last Dinosaur - The Pillows, Plays
[Four Arms jumped onto the missile, and held onto it with his whole body. He saw that he was close to the engine down below. Four Arms felt the intense heat.]
Four Arms: Oh boy, I better get a move on!
[The ground began to shake harder, and from the outside, the viewers saw the missile take off into the sky. The rocket flew across the sky with great speed.]
[We transition to Four Arms attempting to climb closer up on the missile. The missile left the clouds as they were approaching a nearby city. Four Arms turned to the side of the rocket and tried pushing his missile with all his might. They were moving closer towards a city.]
Four Arms: Come on! Come on! Come on!
[Four Arms pushed with all his might until finally the missile had changed direction. The missile turned towards the sky, and Four Arms grabbed onto the missile for dear life, as they soon left the Earth’s atmosphere.]
Four Arms: I did it...
[Four Arms was beginning to lose oxygen, as he took heavy breaths. Eventually his lungs gave up, and his arms let go of the missile, leaving his body to plummet towards the Earth.]
[We shift to Four Arms continuing to approach Earth, as he finally opened his eyes and began taking deep breaths. The group ran towards where Four Arms was possibly going to land. Four Arms continued to fall as it made him increase his speed.]
Four Arms: Come on you stupid watch!
[Four Arms turning the dial, he eventually touched the symbol, and his body was surrounded by a green aura, and transformed in a white light.]
[Everyone ran it towards Ethan's position and stopped moving as Goop splat to the ground. They made it to Goop, as he tapped the symbol on his chest, and changed back into Ethan a green light this time, making a different sound. They all stopped to their surprise.]
Alice: Ethan, you changed back?
Ethan: Yeah! I did it! I finally figured out how to change from alien to alien now! Woo-hoo!
[Ethan walked over to Hannibal as he raised out his fist.]
Ethan: So, we cool now?
[Ethan smiled and gave him his fist.]
Hannibal: Yeah, we’re cool.
[We zoom out to Ethan and Hannibal giving each other a fistbump.]
AND SO THEY TWO HAD RESTORED THEIR FRIENDSHIP, AND GI-KWAN WAS FINALLY DEFEATED. SO WHAT'S HAPPENED SINCE THEN? WELL...
It's Action Time Montage Plays
Hannibal: Hey, Ethan. You know what you should do?
[Ethan gave him a curious look as his response.]
Hannibal: You should go over and ask Alice out.
Ethan: Are you crazy?!
Hannibal (Narration): Look, it doesn’t even have to be a date. You can just invite her to dinner or something.
Scene: [The scene reveals to be Alice and Ethan sitting in their tables at a new restaurant. Alice wore a white shirt with a red skirt and Ethan wore a green collared shirt and jeans.]

Tattooed Man: You won’t beat me!
Ghoulseye: Oh yeah? Well I’m just getting started!

[We transition to outside at night as the group was leaving the warehouse.]
Ethan: It’s time I gave myself a hero name, How about…
[Ethan did a superhero stance and raised his arm over the watch.]
[There was a slight pause between them.]
Hannibal: I dig it.
Alice: I like it, it sounds catchy.
Terence: Now you’re just trying to make it sound like it’s obviously you.
Ethan: But it’s a clever combination of my name and the number of aliens I have!
Nikki: What happens when you get an 11th one?
Ethan: Uh… Let’s not get into that.
[The group was walking towards Hannibal’s car.]
Hannibal: How about E-leven?
Ethan: No way!
Alice: What about TE-welve!
Ethan: Stop it!
Nikki: Your name sound like a video game rating.
Hannibal: [Deep voice] Rated E-10 for ages 10 and up!
[Ethan groaned while the others laughed at him as everything panned up to the sky. The setting then changed to night as a familiar looking figure with a red cloak entered inside an abandoned warehouse. He lifted everything up in the air as the objects were surrounded in red aura. He soon found a golden gem laying down on the ground. He dropped everything and the gem floated toward him.]
Figure: Ah, the Polytimos Somnium. Just what I was looking for.
[He turned to the screen, revealing himself to be Hex.]
Hex: I have everything I need now, to take the blasted boy’s watch for myself.
[Hex laughed maniacally as everything faded to black.]
The track ends.
AND NOW, HERE'S A LOOK AT WHAT'S COMING UP NEXT!

Ethan: Oh man. Can’t believe I’m going to be late, again!
Ethan (Narration): Stupid XLR8, I should’ve just let the police handle those robbers.

Ethan: Whatever, I can make it on time!
[Ethan increased his speed.]
[Ethan noticed that Alice, Hannibal and Nikki were laughing with a new student, as Terence casually chilled to the side.]
Ethan: Who’s the new guy?
Terence: His name is “Gary Alexander Stewart”.
Ethan: Like the writing term Gary Stu?
Terence: Yep, but with a wart.
Ethan: Wow, how original.
[We transition to outside the Splattown building.]
Voice: WELL, WELL! If it isn’t Hannibal Lincoln.
[Hannibal turned to the voice and glared at ‘em.]
Connor: I’m surprised you brought your whole Horizon goons with you. I guess that means you’re back for more.
Terence: Do you mind telling us what’s going on?
Hannibal: These guys are rivals of mine from since I was 12. Every Saturday we used to go out and play paintball together until we got out of High School. But ever since they went to Gaia they’ve changed.
Connor: Do you really think you can take on all of us?

[Hex blasted another energy beam and XLR8 dodged the attack. XLR8 gave him a upperkick and it sent Hex back by a couple feet.]
