The Battle Babes of Greed.

Kingdom of Greed – Castle

 

As Aria might have said in this current moment, they were finally home at last, there and ready to go back to the castle, to meet Mammon once again; to explain to him what had happened in their absence. It was a pleasing thing to the girl, even if she didn’t show it right now, the girl was definitely excited to finally be home; even on her most hyper of days, this woman was calm and always ready for anything. She kept her cool because of the demonic blood within her, afraid that if she ever lost control that she would be consumed by the power and it would take her over; it would leave her elder sister… unprotected and uncontrolled. After everything that had happened while they were gone, one thing stood out to the half demon. The things that had happened while they were in that land filled with snow.

That image was within her mind easily, and she would never forget it. Aria had unloaded everything, her entire mental breakdown state was unleashed on a group of hellhounds all at once, a massacre. In the end the girl was just left only to sit on the snow. Shaking her head at her sister, who had, while her younger sibling had been in thought, robbed a store of their cookies, Masumi resisted the urge to smack her across the back of the head. Mostly because she was wanting this day to go without incident, of course the elder sister had another plan sometimes. They soon reached the castle, and the girl who had the mentality of a sixteen year old seemed really hyper about it, and had already took off. Ugh, great. Dashing forward with her massive inhuman speed, she followed the girl as she moved to keep up. With the girl moving at such a high speed, Masumi was beginning to think it was about time she learned something that let her keep up easier. As soon as she got in though… oh the sight made her freeze, and within a moment some poor soul was trying to enter the ballroom at the same moment.

In that very instant, Masumi shot forward and would have slammed into the girl with a flying tackle, knocking her well out of the ballroom before she would have grabbed her hand and pulled her further away from the ballroom. The only explanation that she may have given was simple, putting up a hand she merely rose it slightly, freezing and then finishing.

Masumi Miyazaki: “Just… no.”

Meanwhile… as the girl in the ballroom unleashed everything, the dark aura didn’t affect her that much, but that was only because her own power seemed to be of the same nature at this point; with two psychotic, sadistic maniacs in one room against one opponent, you’d think it couldn’t get much worse. You were wrong to think so. Ayana’s cannon transformed itself as she jumped into the air, hovering there as electrical energy began coursing around her and the newly transformed cannon. As the girl finished off her third clip, Ayana was moving right over his head as she pointed the cannon at his head; intending to “return” the gift with interest.

“Thor’s Cannon!”

Once she had unleashed all of that power, it was obvious this was on a different level than her previous attacks. The payload of kinetically enhanced divine lightning would have slammed the Jabberwock with so much force that it would have slammed his head down into the ground with earth shattering force while paralyzing his body once again from the electrical currents that would have been unloaded into his body once more. Ayana was grinning widely as she did, obviously enjoying it as she went to truly just show him why he should have bowed down before.

Mariela felt kind of bad for leaving the dwarves there – but that thing was still in the ballroom and she still had her family, Alice and Scar to worry about. She’d go back later, but at the moment, she really needed to get up there to the Jabberwocky. She ran down the hallway, armor on, sword in one hand and the tablet in the other, running as fast as she could – only to get stopped. By… a floating cat head? Mariela stopped in her tracks, giving a confused look from behind the helmet. “Chesire cat?” she said out loud. Like… the one from the Alice in Wonderland story. She couldn’t question once more, before something was thrown into the cat’s mouth, and it sputtered and coughed, then shrinked away, becoming the size of a small cat.

He was… good looking, she’d give him that. She gave a nod of thanks, before turnring around and running off again. She’d thank him later… and also ask who he was. Because that was, like, need to know. She had stepped foot into the ballroom, seeing the same girl as before as well as another walk in. With… cookies? And said cookies got crushed by the thing’s tail. Now… the girl seemed unhappy about said cookies getting crushed. Before she had a chance to react, Mariela was tackled… by another girl.What the fuck?! Where the hell did she come from?!

“Hey!” Mariela exclaimed after she was tackled to the ground, lifting up the helmet to reveal her face. Her hand was grabbed, and she had to hurry up and gather the tablet and the sword, because the girl had grabbed her hand and was pulling her away. “What the fuck?!” the girl exclaimed. She pulled her arm away and glared. “Who the hell are you?” she asked. Mariela looked up when the first girl shouted “Thor’s Cannon”. She didn’t know any of these people. What the fuck was going on?

Why were they even here? One girl girl bursts through the window in lightning, the other one knocks the door down, and then she didn’t even see this one come in. Like… at all. At least not until she was tackled. “Who are those other two?”she said. “And why did you tackle me?! I have that thing to kill, you know!” She did remember seeing the girl before, a long time – when Mammon was alive. But again, that was a while ago. And even then, she was only a healer at the time. She didn’t know much about them. But three random girls just ran into her ballroom and she had no clue who any of them are.

Kingdom of Greed – Castle

When Marcus thought he had entered into Greed at just the right time, he was soon to realize that he had missed a very special event. After just saving the Princess from the wily Cheshire cat, who the Black warlock had recognized from a children’s fable, the Princess was hit in a full on tackle by another female. One with flowing black hair. It was not like she was hitting her to do her harm, but get her clear out of the way. As strange as that may have been. From what Marcus could see, two others were fighting of all things….a Jabberwocky. Right there in the main ballroom. Something else that Marcus noticed was all the red and black playing card knights. As though made of paper standing around the outside of the battle, but not actually contributing to it. Like stranded spectators. There was so much damage….broken shards from the chandelier, the broken cookies…and then…Marcus spied the broken mirror. For a moment, Marcus stood frozen for he recognized the framing and knew immediately whose it was. The fact that it was destroyed and all the creatures were still in the ballroom meant that something had happened, but what? With all the lightning and fire power being dished out in the ballroom, the Warlock looked around his surroundings in the hallway…and happened to spy a hat. Sitting on the ground near a wall. Suspicious of this he walked over, while the Princess was asking her assailant who she was and what the hell was happening in her ballroom.

https://i1.wp.com/24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m368t8gWa21ruih18o1_500.gif

Marcus crouched down and picked up the hat. Underneath the hat was a pocket watch. Strange. The watch had a strange marking on the face, and when he pressed the clip it popped open only to show that it only had half the numbers that it should have, and the small hand was moving too fast. The warlock frowned, and started to rise to his feet. The Jabberwocky…..the cat….the cards….the hat…and the pocket watch. What did this all mean?

https://i0.wp.com/38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lfptxmfhGB1qdnmgfo1_500.gif

Hearing more destruction coming from the ballroom, the Warlock went the opposite way…heading for the Library. He needed to see, if what he thought was happening, really was.

In the ballroom, the table of cookies had been smashed by the swipe of the Jabberwocky’s tail, when it tried to make the attack on the lightning sprite with the massive release of the spear like spines. The girl was surprisingly nimble, and had managed to jump well clear of the tail attack, allowing her to be free from being hit. Angered by this, he was about to open his mouth to launch another purple haze of power, when he was struck under the throat by the attack of the newest kid on the block. Another girly come to try her luck, and with the distraction caused by the arm cannon wielding girl, it was all too easy for the jabberwocky to be hit from under and have his head pound the roof. This would cause large cracks, that ripped along the roof itself and undermined the superstructure – in other words, it was going to bring the roof down on top of them at this rate. The Jabberwocky’s ability to withstand multiple attacks was leaving him drained though. He howled and roared in protest, as the plucky Ayana was enjoying this torrent of electrical super attacks on the mammoth beast.

The Jabberwocky’s whole body slammed onto the ground with a sickening crunch. The paralyzing attack having now taken affect, and the soldiers all gasped to see the red queen’s prize pet almost defeated. Course, it could not be killed without the use of the vorpal sword. The large beast writhed and spasmed, though its eyes continued to glow fiercely.

“She has done what the Red Queen could not.” The Jabberwocky’s head fell to its side as though passing out from the pain. What did he mean by the riddle you might ask? The answer….was in the library.

Kingdom of Greed – Castle

Aria’s roars were cut off as the other girl blasted the beasts head from above. Quickly the crimson coated girl ducked out of the way of the massive falling head, just barely missing being crushed. For a moment she waited to see if the Jabberwocky would get up once more, but it seemed as though the abuse it had taken was finally taking its toll on the body. With a shrill, and demented giggle, Aria pulled back her hood, and moved towards the beast. At this point one of her pupils was larger than the other, giving her an even more demented appearance

Once she was close enough she slammed the heel of her boot down on the breasts head, glaring at it as though it were prey. Her tip of her scythe blade had slipped under the lip of the Jabberwocky, and was pulling its mouth open some now.

“Not so proud now are you?” She growled as she wrenched its mouth open with the scythe.

Once it was open she looked around for something to hold it open, but she didn’t see anything that wasn’t completely eviscerated from the fight. That was until her eyes fell upon the card knights. They all seemed weak and flimsy to her, but they would have to do.

“Hey! Get your lazy asses over here and hold this open!” she yelled at them. These knights though were under the influence of her aura though, and were frozen with fear at the sight before them. That was until she used her free hand to toss a loose stone at one of them.

When it hit, it seemed to snap them back to reality. With slight hesitation that they might be the next to fall under the blade, or the cannon of these powerful females, they rushed to do as they were told. It took the entire deck of the reds to hold the mouth open, but once it was Aria reached her hand into the maw of the beast, and pulled its tongue out. Not the saliva covered appendage was laying limply from the creatures mouth.

It was a pronged tongue, and was very sticky, but Aria cared little about this. As she stood there, she raised her scythe far above her head, and then swung it down. The blade sliced through the flesh of the tongue, and it fell from its owners mouth, completely detached now.

Though it was paralyzed, the beast still roared from the pain of the dismemberment. It tried to speak, but every time it moved its mouth, purple blood flew through the air, coating the knight, Ayana, and Aria in the vile liquid. Though this just seemed to enrage the girl more.

“No! Where is the red?! I must see the red!!!” she screamed at the top of her lungs.

With a swift movement she took her sythe up once more, and moved to the side of the creatures head, near its right eye. The beast’s eyes were now wide open, and was bloodshot with the pain its body surged with.

“Maybe here! Is the red here?” she asked.

She quickly held her scythe like a golf club, and then swung it down, gouging into the beasts skull. The bastard roared with pain again, and this time it was red blood that flowed. Why was it different than in the mouth? Aria didn’t know, and she could give less of a fuck. She simply began laughing as though it was all a big joke.

“Yes!!!! That’s it!!!!! Cry me a river!!!!” she howled.

She then zipped to the other side of the head, and sunk her scythe into its other eye, laughing all the time. Even as she was covered in a shower of sticky red liquid. She seemed as though she couldn’t be any happier right now.

The cat demon had to let out a further sigh as she slapped one palm against her face from her sister’s rage at the moment, that one was definitely angry at this point, and it wasn’t one of her minority rages either; this time she was in full run. The only thing the younger sibling could do at the moment was just sigh, and facepalm of course, at the fact that her sister was going berserk already the moment they managed to get back home. With the woman she had tackled and pulled away from the ballroom angry with her and asking a bunch of questions, she decided to answer those as her sister went and tortured the incapacitated beast.

Masumi Miyazaki: “I ask that you relax, getting worked up is only going to hurt your decision making in this situation. The girl in red and currently laughing at the top of her lungs, while torturing that big dragon-like creature, is my elder twin; by a few hours. The other one, I have no idea, I recommend you ask her. Now, excuse me for a moment.”

https://i2.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/7ac53a38fead9fb43f7833c036084fcc.png

She seemed almost robotic with the way that she said it, quickly speaking the truth and getting the point out there before she turned on her heel and moved in a blur, running into the entrance of the ballroom as she drew her sword and let it shift into gun mode. Hurling the thing and forming an extending ribbon which further extended to the point she wanted it; Masumi then would have jerked the ribbon made just perfectly so that it would have pulled the trigger, causing a gunshot which would have propelled it at Aria. Should it have been left to continue, the move would have caused the weapon to wrap around the elder sister’s stomach, only to have Masumi jerk, hard, and knock her on her ass to pull her away from the beast. With the level of strength that she put into it, the elder would have been pulled hard enough that she skid backwards and stopped at the feet of the younger; who would have knelt down and spoke at that moment in a much softer and more emotional type of voice, a soothing one.

Masumi Miyazaki: “Aria, enough. Snap out of it, I’ll get you a new cookie later. First we have business to take care of.”

Meanwhile, of course, Ayana was landing and had already began building up a massive amount of kinetic energy into the cannon, intending to shoot every ounce that she could straight down his throat; no way in hell was she stopping now. Someone had to say the incantation to stop her, otherwise she’d keep going in this collapsing room. Well… normally anyway, instead Ayana actually dodged several pieces of the falling ceiling, jumping this way and that as she ended up outside of the ballroom; but she was still charging that cannon again.

Once Aria had calmed down and was back to normal, the younger sibling would have looked to the girl and spoke once again, catching glimpse of a male heading in the direction of… the library if she remembered correctly.

Masumi Miyazaki: “… Who are you, and why do you have Mammon’s sword? Where is he? Also, who was that man, and should we be following him?”

Oh… the poor witch had so much explaining to do on their trip to the library when it happened.

Relax? She wanted her to relax? She was just tackled by some strange woman she didn’t know, with two other girls attacking the Jabberwocky. How was she supposed to relax? Mariela took a deep breath, sheathing the sword on her side as she took deep breaths. The girl began explaining everything, and Mariela watched her and listened.“It’s a Jabberwocky. Not a dragon.” she said, recognizing it from the Alice in Wonderland book. Being caught up in a thousand things at once, it didn’t quite hit her at the moment that everything happening came from the Alice in Wonderland book. Alice, Scar being the Hatter, the Jabberwocky, the cards. The cat. She didn’t quite realize all of this yet.

As quick as the girl had tackled her, she had quickly left without another word. This allowed Mariela time to look around. The cards were still there, spread out all over the place. As she watched the Jabberwocky, the girl in red had… cut it’s tongue off. Holy shit. She then proceeded to gouge out his eyes. Holy shit.“Looks like I can’t question it for answers…” she mumbled under her breath. She then saw the broken glass shards on the ground – and her face fell to concern. She guessed it was from the mirror – it had to have been. But… it was just a guess. She turned her head to the other side of the hallway, only to see a brief glimpse of the guy from earlier picking up a hat. Scar’s hat. “Shit…” Mariela mumbled under her breath. Scar never went anywhere without his hat. That meant something bad happened. She didn’t see him pick up the watch. She finally remembered the Chesire cat. All of these things were from Wonderland. Wonderland was coming into Hell, but that didn’t explain where Scar and her family ran off to unless they were inWonderland. But they couldn’t be. Maybe Scar just dropped his hat in a hurry, but Mariela was starting to slightly panic.
https://i1.wp.com/static.tumblr.com/39345522038273082cafd8137da80b06/uajgggf/4wwnjdlw4/tumblr_static_3455t8owx1yc08co8s0s4w84o.gif

The beast passed out unconcious after saying the words “she has done what the Red Queen could not”, and Mariela tilted her head. What did that mean? She remembered the Red Queen was Lydia – who she killed. That means Wonderland didn’t have a Red Queen. But what was the Red Queen supposed to do? And who did it instead? So many questions answered, and so very little time to get it.

The girl in red was saved. But that left the lightning one. Quickly, Marie pulled out the tablet from under her arm, looking down at it. Good news is, the girl was out of the ballroom. Bad news is, the roof was about to collapse any minute, and if she didn’t say this incantation and stop her from whatever she is doing, the roof would collapse on the girl. Mariela looked down at the tablet, before speaking the incantation: “The trickery of Loki undone, the skill of Thor turned to strength, the all seeing eye of the All Father opened; knowing the desire of her heart. By decree of these words, the seal is done, and the Valkyrie shall be forever masked with a power greater than hers.” After speaking it, she quickly moved, racing in the girl’s direction. Without knowing if it worked or not, she grabbed the girl’s arm and quickly began dragging her away towards the other two.

“… Who are you, and why do you have Mammon’s sword? Where is he? Also, who was that man, and should we be following him?” The girl in black spoke as Marie was catching her breath. She quickly handed the tablet back to the lighning girl, before taking her helmet off as she looked in the direction the boy had walked too. “We should be, yes. He has something I need. I don’t know who he is.” she spoke, and quickly began walking in that direction. “Follow me. I’ll explain on the way.” she said, and she waited for them to catch up with her. “I’m Mariela, the new Princess of Greed.”she said, speed-walking to get to the library. “Mammon is no longer. He died in a war against Wrath.” she continued.“His spy and top advisor, Lydia, took over after his death, and she promoted me from a healer to a Dutchess.” she spoke.

“Unfortunately, she ended up turning into an overly-ambitious bitch and I had to kill her.” Mariela then said, taking another breath. “I then took over as ruler of Greed.” she said, turning to look at the three girls, before looking at the twins.“As you will soon find out, I’m not like either of them.” she spoke, still speed walking to the library. “Names and explanations would be nice.” she said, turning to the lightning girl. “Especially you. Who are you?” she spoke.

They made it to the library, and Mariela swung the door open, catching Marcus right as he entered. “Hey!” she called out, slightly jogging towards him. “Thanks for the help earlier.” she started. “But who are you? And why are you here? And do you know anything about what’s going on? Like why Wonderland is in Hell?” she asked. She looked back to the three girls, motioning with her hand for them to follow.

Aira was now coated in blood, laughing like a maniac. It seemed as though she was enjoying herself waaaaay too much. That was until there was a sudden burst of sound. Before she knew it her sister’s ribbon was wrapped around her tightly. When she was yanked back, she struggled. Fortunately though Masumi had also pulled here away from a falling piece of the roof. Even though it did not hit the elder twin, the piece did break itself upon the head of the unconscious Jabberwocky.

The bloodied girl continued to struggle for a moment before hearing her sister’s soft voice in her ear. The mere sound was calming the girl. The black aura around her began to fade until it vanished completely within her body. Even her eyes returned to their normal shapes, and for a moment she just kind of blinked for a moment, looking at the destroyed ballroom. She then turned to her sister, and smiled wide, he child-like attitude returning once more.

“Hey sis. Where are we?” she asked with her bubbly voice.

https://i2.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/e4046ef920a9cfb5486fc61e160b4106.png

She slowly stood up, and unwrapped herself from the ribbon of her sister’s weapon. She seemed to have completely forgotten anything about what had happened since her cookies had been destroyed. Though she did not seem to react the same as the thought of her cookies being destroyed came to mind. Most would assume that she would return to her feral state, but she simply looked sad right now…. That was until she spied the cookies on a table nearby. They were simply being asked to be eaten…. Literally.

Aria cared little about the conversation behind her, running to the cookies, and piling as many of the as she could into her arms. She was about to bite into one, but then her eyes fell upon the Jabberwocky that was passed out nearby. She had no idea that she was the one who had caused it so much pain, and she felt sorry for the beast. So instead of eating the cookie herself, she walked up to the beast, and opened its mouth a little.

“You need these more than I do.” she said as she tossed one of the cookies to the back of the dragon-like creature’s throat.

She did not what the cookies would do. She simply wanted to give the monster a sweet treat. That was just how she was. That was when she heard that there was a new Princess of Greed. With a gasp she dropped her cookies, and skipped over to the girl. Quickly she grabbed both of her hands, and began jumping up and down.

“YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!! Mammon was so mean to us. I’m glad there is a new princess!” she chirped gleefully as she now hopped around the girl.

http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/rwby/images/0/00/RubyGIF1.gif/revision/latest?cb=20130816174802

Soon the girl ran off though to chase after a man. How typical. She giggled to herself as she watched the girl charge off, soon following her lead. She skipped like a small child, and hummed the entire way, sometimes singing about a “Funny Farm”. Weird….

“The princess wants a man. How funny. She seems a little young for that though. What happened to the days of Chastity?” The elder twin mused aloud, most likely drawing the attention of those around her.

As they walked though Aria stopped, seeing a small cat hiding under a table. Her eyes grew wide, and she became giddy.

“Kitty!” she yelled before charging off after the stripped, and grinning cat. Was this girl really the same that had just been one of the scariest sadists to ever grace the halls of greed? It was hard to tell sometimes….

You know, normally when people go and do things like that, destroying a ballroom I mean, you’d think that the person who owned said place would be so pissed off they’d think about nothing else; but at the same time Ayana was a bit satisfied that that wasn’t the case in this situation, in fact it seemed the contrary as she had more to think about than just the destroyed ballroom. Ayana rolled her neck as the seal was redone, kind of glad she was finally back in a stable state of mind, but the problem of the matter being that she had just went ballistic on the sucker with that form; she probably could have stayed in her most natural form, but she hadn’t and that was the issue there. Bah, oh well. Ayana looked a lot more calm now though, definitely psychopathically sadistic or anything of that sort wasn’t present, going from those two this was a bit extreme; but it was better than her trying to murder everything and everyone.

https://i2.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/089a9d893ae20dd7c42fb41cfbddc7f3.png

While the Princess had introduced herself, Ayana just listened in silent thought, and the same could have been said for Masumi who looked very… very calm considering what had just happened. While her sister went after the cookies, Masumi was looking at the Princess with what could have been a monotonous gaze that didn’t show any emotion; when asked to follow, she did, however, after a few turns in the corridors Aria ended up dashing into a different room. Masumi let out a sigh and ducked into the room herself, and would have grabbed Aria by her hood and dragged her from the room, but not before grasping the cat and placing him in her arms. With a murmured focus, and be nice to the cat, Masumi would have indeed dragged her sister along; but would have let her go about halfway in a sign of trust that also said not to run off. Looking to the Princess as they walked, Masumi replied and decided to introduce both herself and her sister. At which, Ayana had the same courtesy after.

Masumi Miyazaki: “Masumi Miyazaki, this is my twin Aria Miyazaki; she’s the elder by a few hours but… I’m sure you’ll figure out soon enough who keeps who out of trouble.We have been absent from Greed for a couple of years, last we were here, the sexist bastard Mammon was in charge; a change in rulership may have been overdue if we went through two rulers in two short years. …Well then. Is there anything that you need, Princess?”

Ayana Hashimoto: “Ayana Hashimoto… I’m a Valkyrie, I was sent to Helheim, ahem, Hell, in order to gain control of my powers; namely the power that you just resealed away. I’ll explain more in detail when it seems we aren’t being heavily pressed in time.”

With that the two had continued on in a sort of silence as they all rushed to the library, seemingly with time being of the essence; but oh how little that they knew that was true. How little did they truly know, for time was slowly ticking away and they had no idea as of yet. Upon entering the library, Masumi and Ayana didn’t hesitate to follow her in, and Masumi made a quick wave to Aria to make sure that she definitely entered the library; they couldn’t afford to let her be staying on her own. And that was only one of the many things happening, for they had to wait on his response to all of her questions.

Kingdom of Greed – Castle

Greed was known for having the best of everything. Mammon, the previous Prince made sure that his library stocked every book in history, and always first editions. With what Marcus had witnessed out in the ballroom, and the clues of the hat and the strange fob watch, the young warlock was starting to gather clues of what might be happening. Everything pointed to a particular children’s story. Known as Alice in Wonderland. Written by a fellow of the name Lewis Carroll. A genius, whose story was much about a change in the moral values in a world that have strange creatures in power over others. Was it any coincidence that it was this very tale that perhaps had found its opposites in this world of Hell? Was it possible that the characters in the book, had a shadow version of themselves here? What was the link? Why was the hat left behind?

With the attacks and fights going on in the ballroom, it gave Marcus a chance to investigate for himself, if the watch face was a clue to the deletion of time. There was no mistaking that time itself was being messed with. Strange and unusual happenings were taking place all over, and from what Marguerite had said of the new Princess of Greed’s actions at Witches Circle, that even she was affected in some way. No witch in their right mind would dare refuse the offer of help from someone like Lavinia, let alone threaten the entire kingdoms of hell all by herself.

Walking along the line of many rows of book shelves, the Warlock knew he had to think fast, and use his magic rather than trying to find the book by more mortal means. Releasing a black mist, that had finger like ends, he said simply.

“Carroll, Lewis…Alice in Wonderland.”

The fingers snapped, and the mist rolled on down the aisles, one after another as Marcus placed the hat and the fob watch down on the nearest desk. It was then that Mariela and her new chums decided to enter the library. Talk about timing.

“Hey!”

“Oh hello.” Marcus was not rude, but he didn’t stop what he was doing either. Magically whipping up a whisky decanter and matching glasses. He kindly helped himself to a drink, as the girl continued on.

“But who are you? And why are you here? And do you know anything about what’s going on? Like why Wonderland is in Hell?”

So many questions, and of course Mariela brought up Wonderland.

“I was going to ask you the same thing, but I decided to do a little investigating myself.” The Warlock poured himself a drink, while in the background, the mist hand returned with the first edition copy of Alice in Wonderland and held it aloft between the Princess and the Warlock. The new battle babes would have seen it as well.

Talking to the hand of dark mist, Marcus said with a smile. “Thank you, would have taken me ages.” The book then fell to the desk and the pages spun open, but if one cared to look, half the words were missing. “Well well…look at that.”Snapping his fingers, Marcus said to the mist hand…“Grab me another book of fiction…anything.” The fingers snapped, and the mist took off again, so Marcus could go back to his introduction. Taking a sip of his whiskey and smacking his lips he continued.

“The name is Marcus Black….I believe you have met my hapless brother, Raul. He…created that mirror that has smashed into oblivion in your ballroom. As to who sent me…that would have been my Mother, Marguerite. Bloody woman is obsessed with your kingdom, lord knows why. Tried to marry Raul off to Lydia. Course…he had to be a man whore and knock up some bandit. And….” Marcus smiled at this part. “You happened to end Lydia. Good one!” he gave a thumbs up before the mist came back with another book, that fell down on the table and opened, to show….all the pages were blank. It was now becoming apparent what was happening.

“This isn’t good.” Marcus said almost to himself, but it would have been heard by the group of girls. Raising his head, he then said what he believed was happening. “Someone is erasing stories….books. Quite the clever plan really.” he picked up the empty book and flipped through the pages, before slamming it shut.

“A very clever way of erasing a potential champion, and using a distraction to stop her from seeing it for herself.”Marcus stared at Mariela and then the others.

“If this can erase a story, not only are those in it in danger….another book is too. Probably the only one that can defeat the evil. Gee, and I thought I was bad. Whoever planned this from the start was insanely clever. Or a madman.”

Marcus opened the book of Alice again, and you could see that there was an outline of the picture of the Jabberwocky, but it was fading….fading from existence.

Down in the ballroom, there was a god awful creak coming from the roof, while on the ground, the paralyzed Jabberwocky was shrinking due to the eat me cookie that was thrown into its mouth by one of the battle babes. Unable to speak…unable to see….its fate was about to be sealed.

Fights like a Girl – The Kingdom of Greed :PD

Back at the Greed Kingdom, the Princess has no idea that her family have vanished, while she is getting fitted out to fight the Jabberwocky.

You ever have that moment when you’re so caught up in the enjoyment of the moment you can’t control your thoughts or actions? That was Ayana at the moment, she was caught up in such a creepy mentality that she was even going as far as to run the bottom of her tongue along the tops of her left hand knuckles with a look of what looked to be expectation of the moment. She wasn’t lying when she said she planned to break this beast, and oh he was a fiery one considering the tone of his voice, but it only brought a look of even more glee. As his eyes unleashed their little eye beam, the girl didn’t hesitate to lift a hand, unleashing a torrent of her Divine Lightning right into the beam in the shape of a wall of brilliant, white, crackling energy which coursed and fought off the beam with ease. While that beam was able to char the flesh and burn it away, her white lightning was a different matter all together, the only true way to defend against that was another form of energy; for a very good example, his own sprays of energy and flame, as well as the eye beam. What most didn’t know is… if you didn’t have a way to negate the lightning itself… blocking it was pointless as the electrical energy would still channel through and seize up your muscles to the point of being unable to move. The most debilitating use is paralyzation. Which she did to the Jabberwocky.

https://i0.wp.com/cache.desktopnexus.com/thumbseg/1969/1969374-bigthumbnail.jpg
“Ah, you’re being a very bad boy~ Time to teach you a lesson.~”

Even with the eye beam coming at her wall of lightning, the girl jabbed her sword as hard as possible into the ground, jamming it there before she lifted her right hand and smiled as she charged up a large amount of Divine Lightning around her curled fingers. It was a bit scary how she was finding everything he was doing to be kind of… just plain bad, like he was a child to be scolded in spite of being a massive dragon. Ayana would have pointed her hand right at the Jabberwocky, discharging so much of that holy energy right at him that once it hit he’d be put in excruciating pain; keeping it going she wouldn’t stop till he released his little eye beam, but as she finished she’d just be standing there. Giggling with insanity and speaking with a bit of a tone which told she was going to enjoy every little thing she did to him.

https://i2.wp.com/media.giphy.com/media/XzVsQHjolPdfO/giphy.gif
“Do you give in yet?~ Or do I need to break you further?~”

And with that she just… continued giggling, laughing with such a wide grin you’d think her face was about to split as she let the electricity continue coursing through him and paralyzing him if it had connected, obviously ready to continue dealing out this torturous damage without end.

“Aye…armor, the likes that be fitting for a woman of your stature.” Suda spoke, and Mariela tilted her head. Suda was loyal – that much was obvious. He’s been with Greed since Mammon and never once left. If that wasn’t loyal to Greed, she didn’t know what was. Mariela lifted her head when the ceiling tremored, and dust began falling. “I’m running out of time…” she mumbled, looking back at Suda

https://i2.wp.com/38.media.tumblr.com/b152b13efbe6ac14fdf3be23ade6afc4/tumblr_inline_mlk578fien1qz4rgp.gif
She looked at the armor as Suda spoke. It did have enchantments. That’s what Mariela had assumed. “Power booster?”she repeated. That meant it amplified her powers. Otherwise, made them greater than they actually were… at least that’s what she was getting out of it. That could be useful in many ways. And now that she thought about it, she forgot that she inherited Lydia’s powers. She might have to play around with that one day. That’d be useful.

She kept listening to him as he talked about the powers. “But then again, you aren’t no ordinary witch, are ya?” Suda spoke, and Mariela shrugged. “That’s what everybody else keeps telling me.” she said. “I don’t know.” she said again. She didn’t understand it – but that’s what they said. Mariela took the suit when it was handed to her, holding it up and looking at it. She looked up as Suda finished talking, before looking down at the suit. “Well…” she said. “Let’s try this thing on.” she spoke again, taking the suit and beginning to slip it on.

She then took the gauntlets, beginning to slip those on as well. “Anything else I should know about?” she asked, speaking as she continued to slip the armor on. She didn’t know how much time she had left. But she needed to get to the ballroom.

Razorbackwriter:

Kingdom of Greed – Castle

There was so much about the Greed kingdom that Mariela didn’t know about. Suda, who had been faithful to each reigning monarch for as long as he could remember had always kept busy in his little blacksmith shop – but there was more to this underground dungeon than met the eye. Dealing with the Princess, while the upstairs ballroom was being turned into a gladiator arena, Suda found himself in a situation that he never expected himself to be in. Instead of whipping on the armor and racing off with sword in hand to go and fight the might Jabberwocky – who was going ten rounds with a lightning sprite, she wanted to know….if there was anything else she should know about.

Suda paused. Standing still…staring at the girl. Perhaps it was time to allow her to be privy to what really had been going on beneath the bowels of Greed castle.

“I was going to wait for a more opportune moment, but…since you forced my hand.” Suda reached for a large lever and pulled hard on it. What happened next would leave the girl truly spellbound and probably in shock. A massive stone wall started to turn around, revelling what was a large passage way. From the sounds of it, there was something going on down the tunnel.

“Guess you should see the lab.” The Lab? What had Suda been keeping a closely guarded secret? Motioning with his stubby little hand, he urged the Princess to follow, even with the loud roars still coming up from the ballroom. “Oh…no rush to go fight the beast, I am sure it will still be there when we are finished…NOW…welcome to Greed central. It is here that we are working on new and wonderful ways to defend the Kingdom.”

If she was to look, she would see an army of dwarves….more than Snow white ever had, and they were doing everything from making swords, to testing out new flame throwers against other dwarves in special protective suits. In the background a young dwarf was tinkering on what looked like a special gauntlet. Rupert…was his name and he was sporting a large pair of blast goggles and had a blackened face. His lab coat was covered in singes, and he smelt…like crispy bacon.

“Rupert…I have someone to introduce to you.” Suda then mentioned to Mariela “This is my son, who is training to follow in my footsteps.”

Glancing up, Rupert turned off his blow torch and shifted the googles off his eyes. He’d not seen Mariela before, and had no idea who she was.

“Can’t you see I’m busy?’ Rupert was not the most polite of chaps.

“Son…this is the Princess of Greed. She is the ruler of this Kingdom. Show some respect!” He was typical of youth of the day – outspoken and brash.

https://31.media.tumblr.com/df5cb45d96720e55084ebf422c1f2dc8/tumblr_my60uhgVXY1t89jpho1_500.gif

“Ah yes…the legendary Princess of Greed. You’re the one that turned Lydia into slime. Nice work. I hate to say it, but…you don’t exactly look the evil ruler type to me.”

“RUPERT!” Suda couldn’t believe his son’s brutal honesty. Yes, she didn’t look evil, but then again looks could be deceiving. The young dwarf coughed before shrugging his shoulders. “I thought women liked to be told nice things.”Poor boy was trying to pay her a compliment. Dragging his hand down his face, Suda then asked Rupert what he was working on.

“Care to give a demonstration of that…gauntlet?’ This was a prototype that had yet to be tested out properly. Rupert was a bit shocked that his father wanted to do a presentation…especially with the noise coming from upstairs. A piece of the ceiling dropped down as you could hear the Jabberwocky going off the deep end.

Rupert carefully lifted the gauntlet off the stand on which it was placed and then fitted it to his hand.

“One size fits all, comes in an array of colours….” he twirled his hand around and wiggled the fingers. “High quality adamantium, which we harvested from a passing chap who looked a lot like Hugh Jackman.” He coughed, then continued. “Retractable claws, capable of tearing through any fabric or metal. Perfect for playing tic tac toe on a dragon’s face….ALSO it throws a net of plasma when you press this button….right…here!” Rupert pressed the button, only for the net to shoot out and hit a passing dwarf, pinning him to the wall.

“Test 27….ah a direct hit. Sorry about that, Wilson.” Rupert saluted the dwarf stuck to the wall, and then continued. “This button activates an invisibility cloak device…which makes the wearer invisible to the naked eye. Rupert clicked the button and then he simply vanished from sight – though..you could still hear him.

“As you can see….or rather not…this gauntlet is a wonderful addition to your armor, M’lady. Thinking about making you matching boots to complete the ensemble. One can never have enough of those. So…any questions?” Funny thing was…he was still invisible.

Upstairs, the Jabberwocky was getting as good as he was giving. Ayana had released a powerful lightning beam to counter the fire blast from his eyes, with a spectacular ball of power now hovering between them. The plucky little fighter was not about to be giving up anytime soon. And neither was the Jabberwocky. The bitch had used her spear strikes to incapacitate the creature, as well as wrap him in a type of binding hold, but there is always other ways in which to fight. What the Jabberwocky did not count on however, was the use of her holy powers. Strange you might say for a creature who was in the very bowels of hell, in a sin Kingdom. That alone was enough to make you question everything. The Jabberwocky let out a terrible noise of pain, with his muscles twitching and contracting during the onslaught. But there was one thing the beast was capable of and that was being able to continue to fight through the pain, as bad as it was. If he couldn’t move the bulk of his body and his eyes still could, he directed the fire beam to the iron chain that supported the very new and shiny chandelier, that was hanging right over the plucky little lightning strike. With a great exertion of power, he fired a blast that would sheer through the chains, causing the chandelier to swing and then fall…..plummeting at speed towards the girl who was in its path of landing. This was to serve as a distraction and give the Jabberwocky the chance to regain some strength of movement, to break through the debilitating lighting strikes.

The Homecoming – The Kingdom of Greed : PD

Mariela, Scar and her brothers had returned from their visit to the Witches Circle, where things hadn’t exactly gone as well as one would hope.  Leaving the Kingdom virtually unattended, it allowed for the start of new dramas…just as Esme had warned.

 

 

Dessy:

Kingdom of Greed – Castle
It was silent as they headed back to Greed castle – with good reason, most likely. Mariela wasn’t sure what was to happen now after the events at the Witches Circle. Considering she just threatened everyone there, as well as the other kingdoms, it probably wasn’t a good thing. But Mariela was prepared for anything they intend to throw her way. She turned her head to look behind her, seeing Tessa and her brothers following behind. She gave a smile, before turning to look at Scar.

https://i1.wp.com/38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lopm0gZ6hM1qkr7pk.gif
“Well. Looks like I have made a few enemies…” She spoke, clenching her teeth together and making a bit of a face.“Threatening them probably wasn’t such a great idea. Might have been a mistake, actually.” she said, coming to this realization. “But I guess all royals have to have a few enemies, right?” she then said with a shrug. She gave another smile, before looking forward as they climbed up the steps to the Greed castle, giving a nod to the guards.

https://i1.wp.com/31.media.tumblr.com/603d4993090ca733cb4cce9684f193ef/tumblr_mgdc14GmlH1rmg3v8o1_500.gif
She walked into the castle, the door shutting behind them as she turned to look at everyone else. “Now, I suppose the first thing we should do is check on Alice.” she said, moving her hands up to untie the cloak from her neck. “I don’t know the girl, and being how she came from the mysterious place behind the mirror, I don’t much how much she can be trusted.” she said, now taking the cloak and draping it over her arm. “I know she’s a friend of yours, Scar, and you know more about her then I do. I just… don’t quite know what to think of her yet.” she said, looking at Scar.

She then turned her head to look at Tessa and her brothers. “Second thing is to get you three home.” she said, moving her eyes between the three. “You three have been here long enough, and I don’t want you guys to still be here should anything major happen. So we need to figure out a way to get you three home.” she then said, looking back at Scar. He should have a way, right? She certainly hoped so… “Now. Let’s go find Alice. And hope she didn’t get into any trouble…”she said, turning back around to start walking forward again.

Re: [RP]Kingdom of Greed – Castle

It wasn’t such a good idea, to have left Alice behind in the castle, while the group had gone off to see the Witches Circle. Alice was from Wonderland, a place of magic and wonder but also some very dark creatures. Having snuck out of her room in the tower, Alice was feeling a little lonely. The young girl had some friends on the other side of the looking glass, and since Hatter and the Princess of Greed had left her to her own devices, Alice decided she was going to use the mirror in order to bring in some much needed companions.

Carefully sneaking down the winding stair case, she kept an eye out, as guards walked past on their rounds, checking that everything was as it should have been. Giggling to herself, the girl in the blue smock dress skipped out when the opportunity was right and made a dash for the ballroom. Recently reconstructed due to the damage that had occurred during the Masked ball. The magical mirror that had been loaned to Lydia by Raul was still hanging in the same place that the gardening staff had left it, and oddly enough a mystical fog was pouring out of it, like a rolling mist. Thinking that this meant the mirror was still somehow connected to Wonderland, Alice clapped her hands gaily, and danced up to the mirror, singing out.

“You can come out now and play!” She bent forward and peered into the mirror, thinking that her side kick – the white rabbit would come bounding out of the glass. Instead however there was the sound of men yelling…their feet pounding on the other side of the mirror, till all of a sudden, a whole deck of soldier playing cards both red and black came flying out. Spears aloft, but they were actually running from something…..something large.

Alice squeaked and fell back as the playing card soldiers leapt over her and ran around the ballroom, trying to assemble into defensive formations. You could see that they were terrified…of something.

“But the Queen of Hearts is dead…..What is wrong with you deck of fools?” Alice cried.

One of the soldiers then pointed as he stuttered.

“You…forgot about….about….the…” He could barely finish the sentence, when there was a god awful roar. The mirror was actually growing in size to accommodate the bulk of the creature….the monster that was making its way through to the Greed ballroom.

“It’s the Jabberwocky!”

~ROAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRR!~

https://i2.wp.com/i.imgur.com/ZLmj6Th.gif

Alice turned around with a horrified expression, her hands coming up to slap against her own cheeks in terror.

“HATTER!!!!!” She screamed as the playing card army all looked up at this most terrible sight.

The creature unfurled each of its wings one at a time, with the tips smashing into the ceiling, before being extended out like massive bat wings. When the wings were unfurled, the elbows came down to the ground, to help the beast to walk forward. Its over sized head had a leathery frill neck that splayed out -with razor sharp teeth that were capable of biting right through skin and bone with ease. it was different to a dragon, but more like a demonic beast with oversized wings. A creature of the purest evil, one that showed no mercy or remorse. It’s pleasure to kill and destroy all in its path.

While Scar had been following along with Mariela, and sadly acknowledging that the whole trip to the Witches Circle had been a mistake, he suddenly heard the terrified screams of Alice, followed by the din of many a soldier. It was only after he heard the mighty roar of the beast….the Jabberwocky, that he knew that Alice was not the only one to have made it through the mirror.

“I think…trouble found her.” Scar cried, as he took hold of Mariela’s hand to run towards the ballroom, and where the newest nightmare to befall Greed had already begun.

You know that moment when you leave somewhere only to get lost the moment that you walk out? That just happened to be Ayana at this very moment, she couldn’t really say she was happy about the fact, because she wasn’t, and why would she be anyway, but she was definitely pleased that she hadn’t come across anything that was really… aggravating. Of course, with the fact that she had to leave Asgard because of something so easy to have avoided was annoying and shameful in its own way, but even then she carried on with what task she had been given; taking control of this damned power that was afflicting her now. Ayana thought she was going to stay lost for a while, till… of course… things HAD to go wrong. The Valkyrie gave a jump as she heard that damnable roar, not sure where it came from, but she had been walking towards the large castle nearby and with this happening… oh the Valkyrie really didn’t think it could go much worse; of course she was wrong as always.

“….Well, time to test this. Thundering Dash!”

~A few moments later~

With the sudden sound of thunder roiling through the kingdom, it probably wouldn’t be clear what was happening at the moment, but with the Jabberwocky running rampant inside of the ballroom nothing was truly clear at the moment other than there was trouble; at least to Ayana that’s how it was. She didn’t know what the beast was, nor why it was running rampant, but it was definitely something Ayana would bite; she was a Valkyrie after all, combat was her forte and something she could do without a thought in her head. Slamming through one of the glass windows, the bolt of lightning only lasted a moment as it slammed into the head of the Jabberwocky, slamming it shut as it prepared to roar once again with the Valkyrie becoming visible with a raging amount of lightning on the spear. Flipping off of the creature, she dropped it midair and called on her naginata, swinging it so that the long bladed weapon had its edge pointed towards the ground with bright white lightning trailing behind it.

“Well then, been a while since I saw a Dreki(Dragon). …Or a type of one anyway.”

Who was she? She must have been insane… maybe… who knew. Perhaps she was just a battle ready maiden. Obviously, it was the latter.

“I may have to release the seal if this is stronger than I’m expecting… expect the unexpected, huh.”

Re: [RP]Kingdom of Greed – Castle
Mariela was certain that they could get back to the castle in peace, and not have any other problems. Mariela was about done with today, and was ready to greet the new day. A lot has happened today, and it was a wonder how she managed to stay so calm during all of this. You’d expect her to have rage quit by now… but she hasn’t. She was still somewhat calm during it all.

They were walking back to the ballroom, and Mariela was anxious to get her family home and away from all of this. But at the sudden sound of a loud roar, Mariela stopped and turned her head. “What was that?” she asked, but Scar already grabbed her hand and ran towards the ballroom, the trio following behind them. Mariela stopped and widened her eyes, looking up at the big dragon-like creature. She took a great, frustrated sigh, closing her eyes slightly as she did so, before opening them and looking back. “Scar… what on Earth is that?” she then asked.

Just when Mariela thought things were over… apparently not. Now, she has some giant dragon-creature-thing ruining her ballroom that they just finished rebuilding. She huffed in frustration, and then whipped around to face some guards. “You. Get them three and Alice out of here. Now.” she spoke, pointing for them to lead them out. She then turned to Scar and opened her mouth to speak, before the sound of thunder was heard. Then the sound of shattering glass was heard, and Mariela jumped back when someone seemed to have came from the window.

“I have no idea who that is, but I’ll thank her for the distraction later.” she said. She grabbed Scar’s arm, quickly running, and trying to avoid the shattered glass, to a hallway. “You know this thing better then I do. Is their a weapon or something that can defeat this thing?” she asked urgently. “I don’t know how long that girl can hold it back… but there has to be something.”

Razorbackwriter:
Re: [RP]Kingdom of Greed – Castle

Scar could hardly believe his eyes. The sight of the massive Jabberwocky took him totally by surprise. Sure, he had heard of the legend, that the Red queen kept one as her favorite pet, but he had never been privy to see it either in a cage or in the midst of battle. The fact of the matter was, it had come out of the mirror, just like Alice, and by the looks of it, both the red and black playing card armies. The Princess of Greed, his beloved Mariela was asking what the hell it was…and Scar tried to answer her the best way he knew how.

“More of a nightmare than I.” Never a truer word was said. The creature was the embodiment of evil, and not only did it roar loudly, it also had the ability to speak common. As it opened its mouth, showing off rows and rows of razor sharp teeth, a loud bang occurred – the window just to the right of the beast was smashed inwards by a force that was beyond that of Mother nature. A crack of lightning struck the head of the Jabberwocky with enough force to make it snap its mighty jaws shut.

Blinking at this sudden turn of events, Scar could not help but whisper to Mariela “Did you do that?” But, it was not Mariela that caused the diversion, it was a plucky girl that had appeared, holding a lightning charged spear, and she had just flipped off the Jabberwocky’s own head and landed with gymnast like grace on the floor of the ballroom.

Who was this girl? A maiden of white and blue, that scar had never seen before. She certainly didn’t come through the mirror. The girl was talking, but maybe it was too herself. A battle with a Jabberwocky was not exactly the place to make formal introductions. One thing was clear, she was here to fight the beast of Wonderland, and the Jabberwocky turned its attentions on the dangerous little sprite. It snarled viciously, splaying out its frilly leather like neck to make its head seem even larger than before. It was smarting from the lightning strike, and the low rumble from it’s belly indicated that it was hungry……Hungry for the little blue lady.

https://i2.wp.com/36.media.tumblr.com/8dcdd448ac3b19c65423059bb47c77c6/tumblr_ms2jm99TPR1rawb5do1_400.jpg

“GET IN MY BELLY!” The Jabberwocky roared as it opened its mouth again, but only this time it released a purple and mauve coloured spray of energy, that crackled and blasted towards the girl with the spear with as much ferocity as her lightning strike had.

With the girl being caught up in the fight with the beast, Scar waved his hands for the nearest guards to get Tessa, Sam and Sean to safety, while Alice was still hiding in behind a large file of playing card soldiers. She was too scared to move away.

Scar was now trying to get Mariela out of the way too, but she wanted to know if they had a weapon in the castle that could defeat such a beast. It took a good minute or two to think of something, till he suddenly had a flash of memory about a sword that he had seen in a glass display case in the blacksmith shop. The shop run by Suda, the dwarf.

“Mammon’s sword! Down in the work shop of Suda…..its all I can think of!” He had to shout to be heard over the roars and terrified screams that echoed throughout the ballroom.

Oh Ayana was not pleased with the current turn of events at all, but she at least was finding a decent time to take control of the current situation with her powers. Which meant it may be a good idea to get the others out of here, but first… precautions had to be taken to prevent something from going wrong once she did unlock the seal; meaning she did one thing. Turning around for a moment she reached into her armor and hurled a stone tablet to Mariela. It was inscribed in two different languages, one was Old Norse, of course, and the other in the common language. The words inscribed were as such: The trickery of Loki undone, the skill of Thor turned to strength, the all seeing eye of the All Father opened; knowing the desire of her heart. By decree of these words, the seal is done, and the Valkyrie shall be forever masked with a power greater than hers.

“That’s a seal to replace the limiter on my true form, you’re going to need it if I use it! Now get the hell out of here, things are about to get really ugly! OI YOU STUPID FOOLS! QUIT LOLLY GAGGING AROUND AND TOSS ME A SHIELD!!!!!!”

That last sentence hurled at the dumb ass cards cowering from the massive dragon while a maiden fought, it was a sight to see in all honesty. They were supposed to be men, and instead they cowered like school girls. Humph. Pitiful.

https://i1.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/faeb3b80b879d5535b29e6dca78eb210.png

Spinning at the Jabberwocky, Ayana’s naginata was already positioned as it became wreathed in brilliant white lightning while she swung straight at the dangerous, roaring beast with his stream of violet flames. With a ferocious battle cry of her own, the girl lashed out at the spray of energy and sliced through it; creating a wall of lightning which took it on as she wreathed her own body in lightning.

“Thundering Dash!”

Shooting into the air with a crack of thunder, Ayana landed on the roof within the second and then called on her halberd with its ax blade, letting herself fall down within a moment as she brought it down with all of her strength; roaring at the top of her lungs with every ounce of ferocity that lay within her being. That beast may have been terrible, but he definitely had a match here in this Valkyrie.

“Thor’s Hammer Blow!”

With the force of the halberd slamming down on the Jabberwocky with enough power to not only slam his mouth shut yet AGAIN, but it also would have slammed his head flat onto the ground while a massive bolt of lightning rained down through the window and slammed into the blade of the pole-arm, making it hammer with even more force that caused the flooring of the ballroom to erupt outwards around she and the Jabberwocky, creating what could have considered a miniature arena.

Should that have connected, she would have again flipped off of the beast while pointing the halberd at the beast, roaring right back at it with all the ferocity of Valhalla.

“Come at me beast! Dragon or not, I will not retreat!!”

Re: [RP]Kingdom of Greed – Castle
“More of a nightmare than I.” Scar spoke, causing Mariela to sigh in exasperation. She took her hands and ran them down her face. “Oh lord.” she then said. All thoughts were interrupted when the glass from the window shattered, Mariela moving away to avoid getting hit. “No. That wasn’t me.” she said, watching the girl land on the jabberwocky and then flip off. That’s when she had pulled Scar into a nearby hallway.

https://i0.wp.com/media3.giphy.com/media/NpyX926gfpC36/giphy.gif
Her eyes shifted to the Jabberwocky when it spoke, before looking back at Scar. It talks?! she spoke. She covered her ears at the roaring and screaming, but uncovered them when Scar began speaking of a sword. “The armory.” she said with a nod. Before she could run off she turned her head when the girl spoke. Mariela reached out, catching the tablet in her hand and looking down at it, before looking at the girl when she spoke. “Great.

Throw her a shield. Now.” she ordered.

She watched the guards remove Tessa and her brother, then turned to look at Scar. “Scar. Go get Alice. Bring her with Tessa and my brothers and make sure they are out of harm’s way. Stay with them and do not enter the ballroom.” she said, looking back up at the Jabberwocky. “I’m gonna go to the armory and get this sword while she’s distracting him.”she said, then without another word she turned on her heel and ran off, making her way down to the armory where Suda, the dwarf, and the supposed sword might be at. “Quickly!” she said over her shoulder as she ran off.

Opening the door to the armory, Mariela stepped in and eagerly looked around. “Suda!” she called, turning to look around the armroy to see if she can find said sword. “Where’s the sword Mammon carried?” she then asked. “It’s urgent!” she called again, tucking the stone tablet under her arm.

– The Daily life of all commuters would be interrupted by the sudden descent of a meteor which landed without warning ; crashing into three buildings before tearing into the street itself and killing numerous civilians . What a sad fate for those unlucky to have gotten in the way of something that had happened without notice. The area where the comet had landed released large amounts of steam , and slowly small waves of troops began to file out from within the steam. One in particular stood above the rest ; most likely their commanding officer of a sort , or maybe something much worse. –

The Leader had a similar purple mark akin to those who wielded a Shattered Item , but what was this ? What was the connection ? What came next from the robotic being was odd , seemingly breaking his dialect to a more direct and humane one.-

Piloting Freedom Wings all the way to this area did not proved much of a challenge for the android in the cockpit, if anything it gave Aiden time to scan it’s systems better and be able to understand them and get used to them, not to mention the fact that as bad as this sounded, he did enjoyed the flight. He smiled to himself, finding it actually quite true what Oberon said about him…three centuries have gone by, and if anything he still behaved like a child, something he did not knew if to find pathetic or actually a good thing. But he couldn’t help it, this was who he was, and he would be damned if he tried to change now.

And there it is…

He spotted the destruction being caused from afar, zooming in as he flew towards the target with each rifle ready on the hands of the mecha as he began looking at all the assortment of weapons he had at hand. A nice asset of energy weapons, a nice amount of battery to spend…and a lot of invading machines on sight to use them for. True, it sounded bad that an android was going to go after other machines, but this was a self defense act. This was their planet, and Aiden was not letting not even this street on their hands if he could help it

Initiating air strike now

He sped up, regulating the power from the energy rifles he carried to cause as little damage to the street and surrounding structures and the most possible to the invading machines and once he was close enough…he fired upon them while also flying above them at high speed on random patterns. He knew this was not the most effective way to get rid of them, in the end if he knew this behemoth he controlled right now had enough firepower to erase an around of five blocks around this area if not more, included this things, but he needed to protect the people and to do so, he wanted them all to notice him. And as for the random patterns? Well, he wanted them to have a harder time predicting his movement pattern. Still just in case he kept his and the mecha’s sensors and dodging protocols active, if they fired back, he would make sure they had one hell of a time hitting him in time

The Robots would take only a few casualties until they decided that the being shooting at them was a threat that needed removing. Their squadron leader would send out orders instantly. –

Swarm Captain : ” Remove the threat with haste. ”

– The Captain ; an Android that had been the most unique was distinguished for his prowess and tactical reasoning to be given such a differentiation ; appeared to the Leader of the Invasion who had stood at the center of the crater still . The male bowed to him and would then speak –

Swarm Captain : ” Shall we press further into other districts ; Master Yami ? ”

– The Robotic Being simply stood there silently as he observed the attacks and evasive maneuvers done by the Winged Mecha . It would seem as if he himself wasn’t all that thrilled by the appearance of the being , but it could be certain that he didn’t find it important enough or interesting enough to do something personally. –

Aiden strategy worked as he managed to force the enemy to notice his presence and even took down a few enemies in the process, that despite not being enough to cause a significant damage had been enough to finally get the attention he sought and the data he required to modify the power output on the rifles as well taking in that maybe damaging the city a little as well as the street wouldn’t be so bad in the grand scheme of things. So he did just that, firing stronger shots, calculating the right amount of energy and aiming to taken down larger masses of the enemy while he still kept Freedom Wings up in the air

I’m taking them down but I might require aid in this Oberon…I will send you what I scanned, hopefully it will be of some use for you

Aiden still communicated with the mechanic through the mecha, having his currently his mine divided into analyzing the data and taking down this machines, while of course the remaining attention he had was on his sensors as he tried to pick anything unusual around the area…something that happened quicker than he imagined. Out of this machines, he managed to pick up two distinctive signals…signals powerful enough to be able to give his sensors signals that he wanted to believe were wrong, due to the amazing levels of powers they had. It made him consider two things, the first one that the appearance of this powerful beings was no joke, something bigger was going on here…and the other? Well…he needed to seriously upgrade his sensors to be able to measure much stronger powers

Just what I needed…

Holding a fight with an individual while also trying to force this creatures back would be no easy task, for a normal pilot anyways, which is why Aiden was thankful that he had his systems synchronized with the ones from the mecha in case this happened. So he sighed, as he noticed how out of this powerful beings, one decided to distance itself a bit from the battlefield to get into a higher position, something that called the android’s attention as he just decided to put in practice what he prepared with when he got here. He was sure he could pull this off…but still…despite that he was still nervous

Ok…I’m about to pull off not one, not two, but three stunts after what happened at Hellgate…and I don’t even know if they will work…yeah…just great…I’m officially insane

Aiden breathed in deeply, as he released the controls and linked himself to the mecha to be able to control it remotely, as the cockpit opened for a second, allowing him to climb off as he stood on top of one of the energy rifles, bracing himself as the machine threw him towards the roof and went back to what it was doing before, trying to destroy this machines, as he Android moved across the air until he landed, kneeling and rather hard, on the same roof as the powerful machine he was able to detect before. Aiden had to admit the method he used to get up here perhaps wasn’t the best but then again…it was effective

So…you must be one of the people in command on this attack…

The android had no trouble referring to the other as a person rather than a thing, mainly because he was before and equal and by the looks of it, a rather powerful and if his hopes were in the right place, one that perhaps shared the same intellect as him, or at least something that resembled. So he stood up, turning around to look at his adversary in the eyes, with those very eyes of his that seemed to belong more to a human than to a machine, eyes that right now seeked within the other some sort of compassion, or sadness over this…anything remotely humane as some sort of hope that he did not had to destroy another machine because of a malfunction

Why are this forces attacking the District? What is your people seeking?

– The Captain materialized several gems ; all glowing a different color . What were they however ? One with a Robotic body would be able to tell that they were actually energy cores. The poles on his back would all glow one of the colors akin to the gems themselves ; what this meant was unknown at this time but would soon come to light at a later point . The Captain quickly charged at the Male in an attempt to roundhouse kick him from his left side with enough force to send him flying off the building itself and into the burning city below if it did connect. –

Sieg:
Excuse me?…

If anything, Aiden was known for being rather kind, patient, and above all somebody who despite all the insults you might say and people’s general dislike of machines such as himself, would never really blow off. But if there was something that offended him, something that basicly made the nasty side of him to come out was things such as that. It’s true, he did not had blood, he would never have children or be able to truly feel the process which create them, maybe would spend eternity alone and most likely people would always see him as they saw a toaster or a computer…but despite that, despite not even having a soul or a beating heart…he allowed nobody, not a single person, to question his free will. He was not programmed to follow anyone’s orders, he did not allowed that to happened, he might have been made with that in mind but he did not allowed people to bend him over to their will, and to have this android mock him in such a way…if he had nerves, this surely would have struck one

If I do this…if I come here and fight you…

He took a quick glance, analyzing his target, taking notice of the many advanced cores it had with him as well as the poles on his back that seemed to be charged on this moment by this very cores. He also saw how he moved forward, and measured the possible strength of his attack…and just as it happened in Hellgate he was against an enemy who was physically superior. But this time he had the upper hand in something, he was upgraded…and any doubts he had before vanished by the words this android said before. So he glared at him, his anger not explosive like the ones from others but focused, focused on the task of defeating this machine just to move on to stop this invasion. So he remained there, in a sight crouching position as he awaited for the very last second to move under his opponent’s leg, as he focused his next attack not on his body, but on the back of his knee. Androids or not, they shared certain similarities with their human counterparts…and that was the fact that on certain joints the armor was thinner and also a bit weaker…and this would be the point where he would focus

It’s on my own free will

He launched a single hit towards the back of his opponents knee, reaching out with his other hand to be able to get a hold of it and hold his leg in place so perhaps, if he pushed with enough force he would manage to break it off or at least damage something when combined with the attack he was doing right now. It all depended on his punch directed to this area now, a punch he launched at full force and speed hoping that he would be fast enough to don’t allow the opponent’s body to react even if he registered it with his systems. In the end he wasn’t a fool, if anything his power and armor were better, so if he intended to be victorious he had to use a different strategy than the usual. And if things went well, he might be able to damage him enough to force him to retreat, in the end insult or not he still did not planned on taking a life…even if it was from this machine

Swarm Captain : ” Beings like us should stick together then. But if this is your answer then so be it I won’t hesitate . ”

– The Captain didn’t seem fazed by being hit at the back of his knee; a weak spot which would normally be exploited but instead would only cause the Captain to grow stiff in place and instead bring his foot down onto the ground ; pushing the fist back to the male’s side as the foot had went into critical recovery . The Captain’s hand began to spin in place as if it had a drilling mechanic ; meant to pierce armor : He would then bring the spinning hand down onto the male with great speed , intending on piercing his shoulder and if this was to miss the hand would instead pierce the ground and with the crumbling building it would cause the ground to lose it’s fortitude in the process. Anymore attacks of that caliber would cause it to crumble and send them to the floor below. –

Sieg:
Stick together? For what? To give people more reasons to distrust and hate us?

Aiden perhaps was overdoing it a little, but there was quite the amount of people that seemed to have a natural dislike for androids, in fact some of them had a justified reason to give them nasty looks they gave them. Take the Rabbots for instance, that race was nearly drove to become no more than a mere memory in their home world so Aiden understood if he saw one on the street and it gave him that sort of strange look. But this…this only gave voice to the extremists of that kind…one way or another there was going to be damage for Aiden’s kind…and this other Android comes and says that. Well, if this is what sticking together caused, he preferred to remain alone among organics

And you haven’t answered me yet…what is the reason behind this attack?, What do you gain from attacking innocents?

Aiden kept forcing his fist to remain where it was, pushing back against his opponent leg for a moment before he noticed what he tried to do as soon as his hand began to spin like a drill and head for his shoulder, an smart move considering that the thickness of Aiden’s armor was not the same as before to the upgrades Oberon gave him. Still, he wasn’t going to let him get away with it, but given the position he was that would have been hard. If he kept pushing, he might be able to remove a limb from his enemy but in exchange he would take critical damage if not lose one himself. It was then that he had an idea, and in the span of time that it took his enemy’s strike to close up to him he already thought of an idea, and given that he enjoyed his new arm…he released the enemy and jumped back, taking some light damage to the shoulder because despite not fully connecting, he managed to scratch off some paint and a bit of metal from that area

Enemy too strong…lacking any physical stimuli sensors…armor thicker than expected…

He focused, his nanites shooting off an forming an energy wall that floated behind him as Aiden laid his feet on it just to don’t fall down towards the ground. In his mind everything moved at incredible speed, as his sensors scanned his surroundings, his enemy. He knew a direct attack would be pointless, but he had the speed…he was lighter, more agile, he just needed him to take a greater damage. It was then that he saw it, that he saw the damage the floor took, and it was when his enemy cores came to his mind. He recalled Hellgate and it was when the gears in his head kicked in

Uhm…elemental my dear me…heh…

Aiden jumped from his current position, launching himself at full speed as he decided to put to use the new gear he got. He made use of his disposable kunais, throwing them at his enemy position, three in the line of sight and two headed for the cores as he decided to kick in his ability to make illusions aswell as a few of his new combat protocols. First, after the line of sight was blocked he made three illusionary clones of himself. One headed for the left with a blade, the other from above in a falling motion while Aiden himself sped up and ended up behind the enemy back, with his own blade drawed. At this point he made another clone, one that seeming went after the enemy’s back poles while Aiden himself went after one of the cores. His plan was simple, he was going to use his blade to cause critical damage to the core and make it go unstable and then throw it his enemy’s way. If all worked it would go off and also cause the roof itself to collapse, and if he was lucky, the fall, the explosion, and maybe the remains of the building would damage this android enough to give him an opening to abuse…all he hoped now, was that he fell for the obvious tricks

A slightly red light started to form out of the air particles around it, down below the fight on the streets filled with blood; a rather curvaceous figure started to form, one that looked intimidating at that. Giant horns spiked out from the top of the figures head, an outline of advanced armor could be seen before the entire body of the individual formed. The Dark Lady moved her hand up to her mouth and bit her index fingers knuckle in excitement at the current chaos and scene of the district. She ended up biting it so intensely with her canine like fangs that she bled a little bit, the blood dripping down her finger and then starting to gravitate off in little droplets up to her mouth where the droplets landed onto her lips. She licked them slowly before laughing like a small child and looking around at the flames and threw her hands up as if she was worshiping it; walking in a straight line as wings started to sprout from her upper back. She looked up at the current fight and nodded in approval as her gigantic wings flapped against the ground and hoisted herself up, many remains of buildings and the cities started to circle around her due to the wind current she was creating before flying straight up and sitting on a building that was barely in tact. She could be seen, but she wasn’t causing any trouble. She was merely… Observing.

“Oh isn’t this glorious~ Our little savior going in for vengeance!”

She said to herself with a positive tone as she kicked her feet back and forth on the building, causing cracks in it to form due to her natural supernatural strength. She bit her lip and continued to watch, absorbing all of the chaotic energy that was currently around the area. It was so convenient that all of this happened to appear, and how father sent her down to check it out. She felt so powerful, as if she could never possibly run out of energy. That if, she was to go into shattered mode that it would last almost eight times as long as it normally would. She would be unstoppable in the current condition that she’s in, almost impossible to beat. She snickered and followed the movement of each robot like being with her eyes, as if she was watching an action packed movie.

“C’mon! I wanna see who’s gonna win!”

Re: Kingdom of Alteria : Tourist District
Not far from where that bright, crimson light originated from the air above the fight that was happening above the streets, a continuing combat that never ended, the Chaos that which always existed no matter the state of the world, hate, anger, sadness, division… all of these negative emotions gave birth to that of Chaos; however, as with all things, there was something to counter the power of the other, that which would represent love, patience, joy, unity… he who was the beginner of Unity itself, guardian of life on Alterus. With the arrival of his own rival, there was a flame to originate out of what seemed to be nothing, a flame which burned with a brilliance that could never be seen in another, not in a single lifetime had there been a flame brighter… stronger than this, all but for one, the flame of he who had created this all… the one who guarded them unseen, sleeping eternally. Liryu, she may not have realized that Hiroaki was watching, but that he was, and the presence of Chaos was palpable. As the flame itself grew, becoming larger and stronger until it finally took on the shape of the one Liryu had to hate the most.

“Leone… I suppose you would go by a different name now… what is your purpose here? … You will not disturb the Alterians and their purpose in this world, I refuse to allow it!”

Though the voice was slightly monotone, the unmistakable sound of anger and determination was palpable in the air as his flames burned from his forehead, one gloved hand raised and ablaze in front of his face, his eyes burning with the emotions which resounded in his voice and his other burning with a flame that kept him lifted above the building upon which the Dark Mistress of Chaos sat. He awaited her response, but the calm look on his face was one she would recognize… the same look that he’d had so long ago when he had left that scar on her face as a male… the same look he had when he helped the Observer end the period called the Shroud.

Celtan stood right behind Liryu and watched with a inquisitive look upon his face at the male before shifting to the city . .

– Charlie took a few steps back and jumped into the fires below , he could no longer be seen from the building’s roof as soon as he had landed due to the intensity of those flames. Clearly the Man from earlier would address the Female and not him ; since from his point of view Charlie would seem powerless since he was not actually in his Dark Lord persona and therefore cloaked his actual strength and power .-

– Small feather’s began to descend from the light casted when the Captain transformed , the poles extended outwards and opened up to reveal small tendrils that appeared to be as wings ; The Captain’s head grew two points which extended outwards in a v shape and a large crystal appeared on his head and a large drill at his chest. He would appear to be as a angel would in a sense , even though his hands appeared to be more demonic due to the fact it looked like claws. All of the Crystals that had floated before disappeared ; having been integrated into one which was now on his head –

Swarm Captain [ Transformed ] ” You’ve a tenacious factor I will admit ; but who are you before a god ? ”

– The Now Winged Captain floated upwards and away from the building as his wings covered his own body while they lit up , the tendrils turning completely white before firing at the building itself from the sides and causing it to descend rapidly into the city below . Now Aiden would have to battle with this descending platform or find a way to fly ; it was up to him-

Sieg:
New powers entering the area, the mecha Freedom Wings holding back the robots using it’s energy cannons from the distance in an attempt to give people some hope and time to run, and to make matters worse his opponent had decided to reveal his apparent real form before him, rendering his strategy of eliminating him using one of his cores useless. So much for trying not to charge in like a loonatic, but if anything it was better that there was some distance between them when he transformed…it gave him a few seconds to think of something as he observed him

And plan A has officially jumped out the bloody window…well, so much for playing smart

Finding a weakpoint at this moment was something that would prove quite difficult, first of all because they would have to take the battle to the air and second, because this change wasn’t just a mere physical one. If his calculations were correct, and they usually were, then something more than the energy of those cores combined when they merged with him and quite honestly he wasn’t eager to find out how powerful this machine was. So he thought of something, right before he decided to finish off the structure they stood on

If you are a god…it makes me wonder why you nowhere near the strongest being here

Aiden smirked, clearly being right about this statement because of the many energy signatures in the area…and honestly not caring if what he did was just a silly taunt towards that machine. He did it because it made him happy, he did it because as he felt how the ground collapsed below his feet it made him snicker and look up at the enemy in a new light one that…and that was it, the word light reminded him something. The spotlight was on him right now, meaning that his enemy would never expect an outside strike…and he had the means for one!

Let’s see how much of a god you are when my kunais break through your armor, shall we?

Confident as even Aiden ran towards the edge of the building, jumping at times on fragments of the roof as he finally made his way to the sky as an energy platform formed below his feet. No sooner than he landed he threw an storm of kunais and shurikens towards his opponent, all coated in the same thick energy from the platform below his feet. The attack itself would seem a mere joke to his opponent, but the point was not to harm him. There were a few extra nanites in those shurikens, in those kunais…and Aiden had a good idea of what they would do him once they touched surface. As for the machine?…well…the mecha decided to use a single cannon to fend off the invasion while another aimed upwards

[i]Target acquired…cheesy phrase loaded…hasta la vista buddy…

The machine shot a full powered shot aimed directly at Aiden’s opponent back, aiming for the wings as a means to make it lower to the ground so they could take the fight where the chances of victory would even out a bit. As for why he thought a powerful shot from the mech would work? Well pretty simple…with so many sudden energy signals he figured his enemy sensors would be as troubled as his own, so the presence of another minor signal wouldn’t upset him, at least until it becomes too late

At the time that Liryu was deeply focused on the fight, the flame that was being created in front of her started to aggravate her; considering that all her eyes were able to see was a bright unnecessary light. She growled loudly, much like a rabid wolf going in for its prey as she bared her teeth before grabbing the edges of the building and gracefully hoisting herself up in a handstand position before leaning her legs back and standing straight up. She started to chuckle before she raised her arms and stretched causally before speaking in a rather cheerful voice.

“Oohhh~ Look whoooo it is! How do you like my new look? Enjoyable to look at wouldn’t you agree? And I’d prefer Liryu if you’d be so kind.”

She stated before she placed her fingers under her chin and smiled cutely, looking innocently at him as her pupils turned into dragon like slits as they adjusted to the light in front of her. She snickered and tilted her head at him as if she was a curious animal before she grinned rather mischievously. Her face read that of a psychopathic killer, one of the title that she held. One of pure chaos.

“Here? In this area? I’ve simply come to observe the beauty of this district!~ Isn’t it fantastic! I love it, it’s… artistic.”

However, her attention was pulled over to the dark figure across the way; whom was just observing. Who was he with? He looked as if he was no threat… But, she wasn’t sure. There was one thing for a fact; she wasn’t here to cause any trouble quite yet. If Anything, she was mainly here to absorb the chaos that was there at the moment into her shattered object to be used in the future; which has already been doing so since she came here.

Jaz was unlucky enough to be one of the people on the street when the comet crashed into the city. It took him a while to dig himself out from under all of the dead bodies and rubble but once he did he could see that the city was in absolute ruin. “Alright, who is up there setting the city on fire?” He looked up and saw several pieces of debris falling toward him, using his enhanced speed and agility he quickly dodged the large pieces of debris that had fallen from the sky. After the dust cleared he looked to the sky again to see an enormous battle taking place. Jaz knew he needed to be up there so he prepared to leap onto the nearest tall building when he swore he saw someone in the fire. “Hello!? Are you hurt? Or are you the one that set the city on fire?” The person doesn’t seem hurt which is odd because even Jaz is hurt. He didn’t sense any enormous amount of power coming off this person either so Jaz approached the figure as he would any normal person walking around in a burning city amongst several dead bodies after a comet fell, with extreme caution.

Liryu.. huh? Hiroaki’s eyes narrowed at the woman who was definitely, without a doubt in his mind, the Dark Lord of Chaos, or perhaps Dark Lady of Chaos was more accurate at this point as Leone had changed himself somehow to being that of the opposite gender; Hiroaki didn’t know how nor could he understand what it was that had drove the Dark Lady of Chaos to appear here. Nor did he care, what he cared about was the fact that she was here and he had a bad feeling that she would soon become involved in matters, something that he could not allow no matter what; which is what had brought him here as the King of Unity, her polar opposite. Hiroaki didn’t enjoy fighting, however, he did know one thing: he wasn’t going to allow interference with the fate that the Alterians were trying to carve for themselves; her presence here represented that potential threat to him and he refused to allow it to continue if he could so help it. Hiroaki’s fist tightened further as his flames burned a little brighter, understanding that if this came to a fight he would have to go into Shattered Mode in order to counter it if he wasn’t careful; she wasn’t an opponent he could let his guard down against after all.

”I will only say this once more, if you decide that you wish to become involved in the matters of the Alterians, I will stop you. I refuse to allow you to cause Chaos here, not in the fate that they have chosen, the fate that they want to live for! Their future, their fate, it is theirs to decide, not yours or mine; and I will protect that!”

Kasumi on the other hand hadn’t expected to see this place in the straights that it was in, instead of being in the shape that it had in the earlier times, it was in shambles and was ripped apart; this being the place that she had met Grant, sort of, and had gotten to know him at least to some degree. She still felt a bit bad for the outburst that she had released from within the heat of a moment that should never have really mattered in all honesty, if she hadn’t lost her temper so quickly she would never have hurt him at that time and she knew it, but for now she was having to push those thoughts out of her mind as she flattened her ears and looked around about as fast as she could, trying to figure out what the purpose of everything was right now.

Kingdom of Alteria : Tourist District

Ever arrived at a party right at the end and see the destruction and aftermath of those that had been before them? Well, that is pretty much the scene that confronted Grant when he arrived in behind Kasumi at what was once the Tourist district. How much it had changed, it was just so hard to believe. Kasumi and Grant had enjoyed the sites, the convention and even been to a restaurant when the city was brimming with life and colour, sound and music. Now it was like a war zone, with burnt out flaming cars, and smashed shop front windows.

Grant turned all the way around, so he could try and work out just who had caused this, and where the enemy lay. To the untrained eye, it could have been terrorism, but the truth was that this was a war of the worlds. The Terakins versus the Alterains.

Catching up to Kasumi, he placed a hand onto her shoulder to let her know he was right behind her.

This was amazing to see up close like so , almost as if this was the destiny of mankind itself. Charlie was gone , he was running about on the streets attacking people as it stood : ever moreso decreasing the amount of lives in the area –

– The Robotic being would speak as if triumphant and confident in his skills as the projectiles flew right at him which he easily waved off seemingly with a smacking motion with his wings ; although doing so had caused his wings to be punctured by the projectiles which caused the being to let out a sound of anger. He was not enjoying this anylonger , and not before long a beam stroke his backside , burning off half of his wings and causing the man to come crashing down onto the city below . A small trail of smoke clouds would be continuously release from his back as he fell to his doom –

– The man from earlier would appear here ; standing on a destroyed tank as the Leader of the Robotic Forces , or better known as Yami.EXE the Malfunctioned Portion of the Celestial King of Wisdom was here staring at him ; continually creating more robots with the assistance of the ”comet” which landed which was actually a chamber shaped as a ball with numerous tendrils sticking out of it . All robots could be seen coming out of here in small moderate numbers ; seeing as to how the comet wasn’t so big as to cover the entire street but only a small portion of the center . Kasumi and Grant would be able to fend off the robots and continue to get to the center, Grant’s mark would navigate him towards Yami . But why ? If and once they get there , they’ll be greeted by the Robotic Overlord himself but would first see the tank and the back of the black haired man standing on it’s destroyed body.-

Aiden grinned, knowing that his distraction worked this time as his enemy completely forgot about the mecha he was remotely controlling. So it was no surprise that he remained calm the moment that he saw how little effectiveness his kunais had in matter of causing great damage…of course…because the real hit was delivered from another direction. So he watched, a hint of joy mixed also with sadness over what he just did, in the end he knew the other one, his opponent was basicly his equal in many ways, and while he understood from where he came from in terms of standing he couldn’t allow him to continue this mindless destruction, so he watched, muttering back an answer at the defeated opponent

I’m sure someday I will fall…but it won’t be by your hand

The plataform he remained in dissapeard as he too descended towards the ground but only to be caught by Freedom Wings as it flew by his side. From it’s palm the android made a moment of silence for his rival, as Freedom Wings aimed down and shot one last time towards his opponent, a single time to end things and give him a more proper and perhaps quicker one. He just wished things could have been different, that they had tried to communicate with other androids down here before resorting to this tactic…but what was done was done and there was still an invasion to push back. So his head turned towards the other energy signature he initially felt…his head turned towards the very leader of this machines as only one thing got into his mind. The key to stop this was him…and he wouldn’t waste a single second more

Link prepared…full power activated…full offensive mode activated…

He climbed on top of Freedom Wings’s shoulder, holding into it was the mecha flying towards the target, every weapon available at the ready and awaiting only for an order from Aiden to strike. The android awaited, awaited until he was close enough as he deviced a plan at the speed that would put a lightning to shame. He knew something for sure, he needed to attack quickly, come in, dish out all the damage he could towards the enemy and just damage it badly enough to force it into a retreat. He knew he would not eliminate it, but if he could just damage it, that would be all…

C’mon buddy…let’s go to kick some can

He patted Freedom Wing’s shoulder, breathing in deeply as he closed his eyes for a second, trying to set his mind at ease before going full offensive. The words of warning from Oberon still burned in his head, what could happened if he went berserk was something he couldn’t allow, so he decided to set an small counter measure for that in this moment, as he tried to repeat himself that it would be okay even if he wasn’t fully convinced. But it was something he needed to do, it was time to go all in, release the weapon…

Now!

Freedom Wings flew a bit lower for a moment as Aiden jumped from him, taking off at full speed with his blade out the very moment that he touched the ground, deciding that he would test how fast Oberon made him aswell as how at combat he was. So he ran, sprinting through the ranks of mechanical minions as his blade ripped through them while he continued on moving, never stopping as he headed himself for the leader itself. All of this while the mecha took some height and basically fired at full power, aiming directly for the one this machines followed, Yami.EXE…in the end as much as he would like it to finish it off there was too much people close…so first thing first, he was planning to push it back, to use Freedom Wing’s cannon shots to make him focus on him and then come at his new target at full speed and basically hitting with all the force he could muster using his blade, trying to use both his force and momentum to his advantage. If all worked out fine he would back away, in the the last thing he wanted was stay in the vicinity of an enemy that could easily strike back even harder…

LIRYU

“Oh calm down would you? I said what I came down to do, trust me. If I were to have done something, it would’ve happened love.”

Liryu stated before she turned her back to him, turning her head over her shoulder and grinning at him before swaying her hips and going to the opposite side of the building. She raised her hand and signaled him to shoo, as if he was a fly. She was highly annoyed that he constantly was on her ass, it wasn’t like she wasn’t all bad 24/7. She had other emotions other than chaos, she could be hungry and turned on as well at points in time. She wasn’t planning on completely destroying this town, for she already absorbed enough chaos from around to be satisfied and to use the gem for later.

“I’m under orders to just.. observe.. And I’d rather not make father mad.”

She said before she rolled her eyes, still extremely annoyed at his actions. He was assuming like usual, on a completely different topic and talking all that stupid heroic shit. She snickered before she spread her wings and forced her wings down, causing the building to shake a bit more but not collapsing. It was so… typical of him to protect these pathetic beings.

“Stop talking all that heroic shit. It’s getting on my nerves. And I would imagine you’d rather not fight. Especially in this wonderful, chaotic town. It would be your stupidest choice yet.”

The figure Jaz had been yelling at didn’t acknowledge him, Jaz chucked that up to him thinking he was closer to the figure due to his enhanced senses. He continued walking toward the figure but was distracted by something grabbing his leg. Jaz pulled out his sword and swung it at the thing wrapped around his leg. It was the hand of a little girl, her lower half was crushed under debris and she was reaching out for help. Jaz could see that she was beyond help so he put the girl out of her misery. He hated having to do stuff like that but he wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. He continued walking when he was stopped by something or someone falling out of the sky. Jaz moved at incredible speed out of the way of all the debris kicked up by whatever fell. “I have a bad feeling this is about to get interesting.”

Kasumi had no idea why, where or why, this damned being had come in, where everything had started; why it had started. Everything was a mystery to her, with Grant at her back, asking a question that she didn’t know the answer too, but she didn’t care anymore either, now Kasumi was in shock, looking at everything with a gaze that asked the questions blazing through her mind; why, why were you here? Why are you doing this? What do you want? Who do you want? Why is it that you feel like you can just come in and take away everyone’s happiness?! Kasumi’s gaze didn’t take long to harden into one of anger, her eyes turning into a fiery blaze of determination that burned like a thousand suns.

Kasumi Daisuke: “I don’t know what this is but… Grant, I have to ask you again. Fight with me, watch my back and help me end this. I can’t stand by and allow this any longer!”

Death and destruction, it all blazes to the fore. Kasumi’s determination ignites with a passion!

Kasumi’s flames blazed around her body as she prepared to ignite her resolve, but something made her hesitate again, what would happen if her body couldn’t take the strain of it again? Using Flaming Persona might be a risk, but at the same time what if it wasn’t enough to take this threat on? Kasumi grit her teeth and set her face before her flames wrapped around her form once again, revealing her standing in the same form that she had been only moments back, that form where she had that power; Blazing Genesis. The power of Creation.

Kasumi Daisuke: “One last time… Blazing Genesis!”

Once the transformation occurred, the flames billowed outwards around her as she mustered her strength to fight; it was all she could do in all honesty. Then, with a flash in her eyes, she hurled herself at the bastards, dashing in and out as she sliced them apart piece by piece. She was holding no quarter for any of the damned robots as she fought her way to the center. It was time to fight, and take on whoever the leader was, however, it seemed that one of the robots had a different plan as it stepped in their way. Kasumi snarled at it, but she kept her cool before charging it.

Swarm Juggernaut: “You…go…no further!!”

The massive beast of a machine roared at her as she struck, blocking her attack with a powerful swing of its ax, he sent her flying alright; straight into the building. Instead she simply charged right back, only to be blown away by some kind of shield. Kasumi slid across the ground, speaking only once before she shot past.

https://i.imgflip.com/lwrq4.gif
Kasumi Daisuke: “You’re in our way! Grant, cover me!”

Kasumi hurled herself into the air as her sword became engulfed in a massive amount of flames above her as she called down, the jump having been to dodge the blasts of energy from the massive robot, this was a revised form of her Final Inferno, but it would have to do as Kasumi aimed her attack at the robot.

https://i.imgflip.com/lwr4e.gif
Kasumi Daisuke: “Take everything… I have! Final Inferno Genesis!!”

In the next moments, the juggernaut and the other grunts would have become engulfed in a massive, wide inferno which blazed stronger than any other attack that she had ever unleashed; this one swallowing them up and then melting away at their frames until she stopped and then let herself fall back to the earth, landing with a thud as she let out a grunt and fell to one knee, with the energy blast melding into one large one that was now headed straight for her… her in her most vulnerable state. Would she be hit? If Grant was able to stop that blast of energy… he would have to fend off the robots for a moment longer, but if there was anything Kasumi could be sure of, it was that the man would help her; she had faith in their friendship if anything.

Hiroaki had the look in his eyes that said he had no bullshit he was tolerating today, but for now he was thinking, even if she was under orders, what was the point going against what he had a feeling she wanted to do; why was the Destroyer giving those kinds of orders in the first place? It wasn’t natural for obvious reasons, he was meant to cause Chaos and reek havoc on the world of Alterus, but if he was ordering his Dark Lords to not cause any trouble and merely observe… that made no sense to Hiroaki. Even under those orders, Chaos is a fickle thing, if you try to let your guard down it can swallow you whole, but that was also something that begot the strongest of bonds.. the strongest of Unity. Hiroaki could feel the strength of a bond below him, and it was something that proved his point, a bond begot from Chaos was always the strongest; and he could take power from it as much as he needed.

Hiroaki: “I know better than to trust Chaos, it’s too fickle a thing, you do as you please. I’m no fool. But there is always one thing that you should note. In times of despair, of chaos, the strongest of bonds are forged; those bonds illuminate the path of those who come after us. I have faith in the new generation, and that is the only reason I am here and not fighting their battles for them. Take it as you please, heroics or not, this is not my destiny; it is my choice to follow this path.”

The battle. Oh my god, it was more amazing than Transformers, more dazzling then the Matrix. Wow, could those killer bots move. Course, it was the plucky little foxy mamma that was going into complete fiery meltdown to battle the sons of Tinman, and normally, while Grant always trusted her judgement in a fight, he could see that even she had forgotten the limits of what her powers could do, or rather…pushing the boundaries so hard that she was now a danger unto herself. There was a saying that once you reach the top, you stop. You don’t keep surging up. The fall would be crippling. And so it would seem, for after nodding in affirmation that he would be her back up, he noticed that she had gone too far ahead. Her own injuries would come back to haunt her and for Grant, he simply could no longer sit on the side lines. it was time…for Irasho!

“DUN DUN DAH!” The war cry of Grant as he pulled out his shattered item, the mask. For extra dramatic purposes, he wiggled his eyebrows, his head doing a classic wobble, before he brought the mask down to secure over his face. Crying out and yet laughing at the same time, as the power of the mask took him over, Irasho started spinning like he was his own little tornado. Dodging fire balls and flaming bits of metal that came his way before he finally stopped right in front of the injured kasumi. When he did stop spinning, he was standing wearing of all things….a baseball outfit and his twin swords rocketed out of his back pack turning into the biggest baseball bat you ever did see. He tapped it on his upturned heel, before swinging the bat as he readied himself for the mother of all hits. Chewing tabacoo and you could hear him mutter.

“BATTER BATTER BATTER…SWWWWWWWWWWWWING, BATTER!”

The blast of the fire ball that was coming towards them was like the force of a juggernaut and Irasho brought his arm back before launching into the hit, striking the fire ball of energy with the powered baseball sword bat.

~CRACK!~

Up up up went the ball of flame….the robots all looking up as a few were darting to get out of the way of the strike path. Grant was already starting a run, and instead of just jumping on each base, he was knocking out robot after robot with the swing of his super sized bat.

It was the baseball game of his dreams….his anime dreams that is.

Shattered Theme

– The Leader of this Invasion would soon take into account that his Swarm Captain has fallen , sighing while seeing shots come at him ; all that ended up curving at the last possible moment due to the redirection fields that was around him making the attacks worthless that were done by the Machine that had defeated his captain or so it seemed . While the male soared through the sky on the Mecha there was one thing he didn’t look for : The remains of the Captain . In the next 3 seconds a large yellow beam would be released from the building to the left of Freedom Wings ; making it so that he would only have a short window of time to attempt escaping but close enough that it’ll cause his nerves to move at a faster rate due to the swift action that had been taken by the enemy , maybe his job was done since more had came onto the scene . The black haired man would watch Kasumi and Grant from the distance as Yami had stopped reacting to him , it would be as if they were ignoring him due to the fact Yami didn’t attempt to fight him knowing the robots would just die from him but why was he not helping ? Most likely due to the fact there were some elements and factors here that did not factor in for such . Yami.exe kept his eyes fixated far off in the distance seeing the flaming-display of two other people who were slowly closing in : One of them had a Shattered Item……. –

Yami.exe” Come closer . Come to me , Child of the False Light . ”

– Why was he so interested ? What reason could there be ? In the span of the next few moments Yami would end up causing his robots to stop their assault , turning into nothing more then dolls at this point . From an inference ; it could be clear that he must’ve been awaiting for a person with an Item , he was intrigued. Very much so…….. –

Sieg:
It was utter chaos right now and anyone would be able to easily tell so, as long as they were in a good enough position or they had some sort of connection to chaos itself. Robotic and organics basicly going at each other with all their might, trying to stop this invasion or either trying to make it succeed. And sadly one of the many beings who was very well aware of all the destruction going around him was the one android who was fighting for the district, the one who was going alongside the mecha in an attempt to meet with the leader of this invasion and try to destroy him…while also trying to focus himself on an objective, as an attempt to not think about what he was doing. For anybody it would seem easy to destroy some machines, because they were that, just machines…but this were equals in some shape of form to Aiden, each time his blade ripped through one of this machines or his sensors picked up them being crushed or burned into melted piles of metal…he honestly felt sightly disgusted in the pit of his stomach. It made him not want to look, to only focus forward…in hopes that without a leader this machines would stop…but even then he knew that for beings like himself things would go only downhill from here if this attack could be stopped, of course the moment he saw how the shots fired from Freedom Wings were just shrugged off like that, that chance seemed unlikely

What the hell?…

A moment of shock it’s all it took for one of the machines to get a hit on him, throw him off his high speed course into the grip of another that never finished getting a hold of him. The defensive protocols again, acting before he could thing as the blade took care of the machine before in, as he basically went through it, and another…and another…until finally he landed again on the ground, his blade bearing the stains of some sort of liquid stored inside the machine’s core, apparently to keep it cooled and also to help with the process of generating energy, a liquid that if you were technical about it could be considered the lifeblood of this machines…that that right now covered a great part of Aiden. He would have felt disgusted, if the moment this took place it was Freedom Wings the next to have been struck.

Dammit, nobody else just wants to drop in and make this more complicated!?

The mecha was fast to maneuver to avoid most of the damage the beam would have caused, but sadly in the process of dodging it lost part of it’s shoulder as well as most of one of the wings and the powerful impact itself caused it to collapse into the ground and a very rough landing. Many of the attacking robots may have taken severe damage and be destroyed by this, but nevertheless the mecha took damage as well…of course not before, thanks to it’s own offensive protocols and Aiden himself, it aimed it’s rifle towards the direction the beam came from, shooting back as the Android made it’s way towards the building the mecha rested against, forcing itself on it’s knee as it raised it’s rifle, while Aiden in the ground held up the arm from where the blade came from. By now even if the attacked showed itself or not it wouldn’t matter…it was getting pretty crowded around Aiden’s position and he began feeling strange…noticing the many dark thoughts that came to his mind, the many way to dismember this machines into nothing

Why are you attacking…why would you do this…

He felt himself panting, his blade sightly trembling as he made an effort not to lunge but it was clear that he was starting to lose it from all of this. He wanted to end this, to make this machines dissapeard into nothingness so he wouldn’t have to face the fact that he was killing his own kind…but then again what difference would it make if he eliminated them all or not? Two organics were wrecking them apart and maybe even fun in doing so, and after this he would be lucky if he could walk during the day without feeling people’s stares on him all because a bunch of psycotic machines attacked this place. The next days for him, just because unlike others was made and not born, would be hell one way or the other and he could do what choose which one to get through. It was this thoughts that ruled on his head, despite his apparent cheerful behaviour…it was these thoughts that went around him right now and combined with the usage of the new combat protocols cause an strange reaction in him…who knows, maybe even the presence of a certain chaotic lady was to blame, maybe or maybe not, but one thing was certain, he just needed a push in the wrong direction, one small tap before he pretty much lost it. And given that he still had Freedom Wings under his command, it wouldn’t be a good thing if he did lost it

I don’t get it…what would be so important for you to do this…

♦LIRYU♦

Liryu, at the time was just simply forcing her wings through the air, slicing the smoke in half around her as she hovered there just simply glaring at him. Her armor and horns glimmering from every direction due to the flames that still surrounded her and the rest of the people in the area. She was obviously, if paying attention; one of those most strange things there. Especially since she had such a huge role in a part of this little thing called destruction and peace. She just looked at him with a completely blank expression as he spoke, almost as if she was in her own little world as he talked on about… god knows what. Of course she didn’t mean to be disrespectful, it just happened to be someone who she despised and didn’t really wish to listen to. She saw his lips moving, but heard practically nothing as the constant clangs and clashes of the other battle that was currently going on echoed through the district. As he finished discussing his little point, she read his lips enough to get where he was heading in order to make her reply to him.

“Oh darling do you honestly think your little bonds can destroy mine with such ease? If you don’t recall, we’re precisely even… It all depends on who lasts the longest. But also.. Keep in mind. There will be chaos where ever there is life. War. Stress. Anger. All of it is a part of life dear~ so whenever you see that giant war over territory go on, or two gods fighting over one side or another… It’ll always be purely.. Aha..Chaotic.

Now if you don’t mind, I need a new seat since my entertainment moved.”

She stated rather darkly before she waved goodbye. And stopped flapping her wings and just dropped down into the air until last minute where she spun around and started to soar off a bit closer to where the robots have moved. It was like a sci-fy movie, but even better since it was right in front of her. Sure, there’s the possibility of being hurt; but why should she worry when petty things like those weapons would barely even scratch her? As she got closer and closer, she once again picked a high up seat, sitting on the burning metal which seemed to have absolutely no effect on her; or she acted that way at least.

Jaz

In the confusion created by “whatever it was” falling into the city Jaz used this as an opportunity to find cover. He hid behind some large pieces of ruble and examined the figure that had just fallen out of the sky. After the dust kicked up by the shockwave settled Jaz could see the “whatever” was a “whoever”. He whispered to himself, “I hate it when I’m right! This just got interesting.” He could see it was a tall man in all black who didn’t look like someone who could do all this to a city but Jaz knew not to underestimate the people of this world. After assessing all he could in the short time he had he emerged from the ruble and confronted the man in black. “Where does your allegiance lie?” As soon as it left his mouth he felt a bit silly because he didn’t even know where his allegiance lie.

Kasumi knelt there, her energy far more drained than what she had anticipated it to be considering her body should have already adjusted after using it at least once; she was wrong, this form took so much energy it was staggering, using the Final Inferno Genesis hadn’t helped at all as she had been intending to throw a lot less of the amount of power she had, but for some reason she couldn’t control the output. It drained her intensely because of it; she had the power, she just couldn’t control how much she was throwing out. It would have been different if her attacks threw out too little, that way she knew that it wouldn’t be so draining; no, instead of that it was the opposite, her body opened the facet at full blast instead of just plainly letting her control how much flow.

Grant seemed to be having a ball where he was, so Kasumi pushed herself up and looked to the ground for a few moments while gazing at the flames circulating around her and the city. It was still infuriating to the Kitsune what had happened, why did this bastard feel he had to do all of this? What was driving him? Who was he? Kasumi almost didn’t care at this point, but she felt she had to know who this was and for what reasons she had no idea why. Standing strong, Kasumi set the sword to one side and let flames curl down its form as she began walking straight past every one of the dolls that were the robots; her eyes and hair blazed, those crimson orbs flaming with an anger and determination to end this all.

Hiroaki kept his passive look in his eyes, he was simply just being serious here and now and wasn’t too bothered by the change in the woman, it felt to him she was dropping her little facade and though that meant he might need to fight she simply retreated to continue observing on everything that was going on. Hiroaki wasn’t sure what he was supposed to do, or what she was going to do, but his faith was further solidified by the strength of the bond below; it was the bond of people who could stick together and help one another, have each other’s backs and forever stay together as comrades who would assist them in their endeavors that led them down the path of the fate that they chose. Hiroaki didn’t move from his position right away, but in a few moments he did. He lowered himself onto a nearby building, watching as the flames on his forehead ceased their miniature inferno.

Nothing could be more crazy, then how Grant or rather Irasho; the crazed masked anti hero. The way in which he skidded into the imaginary home base plate sent up a plume of dust and smoke, which cleared only to show Irasho dressed completely different. The large baseball bat had split and returned to the shape of the twin magical blades that the Queen had given Grant at the very beginning of his quest. He sported a long black leather coat, like the kind worn by a Matrix warrior, and while he may not have been wearing dark shades, his shattered item – the mask had turned into a wicked visage. His eyes were a ruby red colour, one could say blood like, and there was this hideous grin that showed off flashing razor white teeth. But it was not just a mask now, it was almost as though the man known as Grant no longer existed. One thing about this shattered item was…the more you wore it…the more it took over its wearer. Already Grant had shown signs of his personality becoming almost morbid in a sense. Kasumi was often so wrapped up in her own problems, with family and the past that she could have missed the signs of the degeneration of Grant’s very soul.

While Kasumi walked almost calmly past the lines of what were now dolls, Grant was sniggering. His back almost hunched though his broad shoulders made him seem larger than before. The baseball game with the blazing fire balls was fun, but surely it was not over. There had to be more fighting to come. Kasumi was blazing, her hair almost the colour of fire as she strutted along with her sword almost poised for what would come next, but she merely called out to Grant to leave the battle grounds. Irasho stopped the snicker but he quickly turned and snatched one of the heads of the dolls and with a quick snap with his hand the head popped off, with sparks and wires poking out of the neck. He couldn’t be blamed for wanting to leave a headless gift for whoever ordered the attack.

But as he fell in behind Kasumi, a voice was heard….calling…

Yami.exe” Come closer . Come to me , Child of the False Light . ”

Irasho turned his head then looked to see this…Yami character who was not even fighting by the looks of it….just staring.

Irasho placed a hand to his chest, and then in a voice reminiscent of De Niro, Irasho said back.

“Are you talking to me? Huh? Are you….talking…to me?”

Yami : ” What a splendid appearance for the true nature of the powers of this false light . Very……….. very terrifying your powers truly are . I need to see more. ”

– Yami stared at the male as he responded by asking if he was being spoken to , which made the Robot walk slowly towards Grant and ignored the Robot as he seemingly struggled within himself . The air around him grew much more dense as he gotten closer before he changed his appearance as he scanned the male before him before his body cracked to reveal a slimmer figure with the same bodily build as him with longer hair and a blade in his hand . –

– Yami’s grinned shone in this new face ; quickly running towards Grant with his blade to attack him downwards if it landed. However it was odd , the Deity of a sort did not move with a crazy insane speed or anything that would be expected of a god with such tremendous sensations about him. One could or would infer that this was all a game to him , he could’ve moved much faster. Was he testing the male ? –

– Rain began to pour over the burning city ; as if signaling the ending of the robot invasion , but was it really ?

The Vampire male known as Ori Ventrue would look at the male who spoke to him , before he spoke in a soft voice and uttered to him. –

This was no longer his world to protect on the front lines as he had done his duty quite a long while back , but that did not mean he didn’t care for the world . He knew when others had to replace him here , the people of the past sown the seeds for this future ; with Strong roots that will build into something marvelous in the future if allowed to take that path by the guiding hands of the past.

And off he went ; moving at an extremely fast speed towards the square where the others were . His upper body were elevated as his face showed an expression of pure adrenaline and excitement followed by the pumping thrill of moving so fast he didn’t know where he was going until he got there …… All in one piece or not. –

Boy, did Kat know how to pick a place. You could literally taste the testosterone as you walked in the front door. Wall to wall muscle and beef cake. Fighters of all sizes and shapes. From dwarves to Giants and orcs. Many were enjoying drinks, betting on the upcoming fights, or admiring the hostesses, that went from table to table ensuring that the customer’s every need was serviced. It was actually rare for female fighters to make an appearance, which was when the place really erupted. A few of the regulars spotted Kat off the bat, and the loud sound of wolf whistles and cat calls began. Typical. Ruled by their prick dicks and not enough blood to the brain. Kat sashayed in, her hips swinging like a pendulum – hypnotic and sensual as fuck. She knew how to draw attention, but the real draw card was coming in behind her.

The Princess of Wrath. A few men got instant raging boners just from the sight of the red vixen in her leather cat suit like fight gear. She was armed, sexy and down right dangerous.

“Hello boys. Brought my new Mistress out to play. Meow.”

A few whispered, and there was much elbow nudging along with winking. It was easy to see that a few of them were already having lusty thoughts about the pair. A few probably would pay a lot to see the Princess and her cat in a pool of jello, or swatting each other with pillows whilst on a long greasy pole. All to titillate, sure – but the Kat had other ideas. The reason they were there was so that the Princess could learn to take control of her fire powers. To regain her soul and above all, to kick someone’s dick into the dirt.

The bar manager, a short statured irish dwarf came hobbling over. He used a emerald tipped cane for support and with an eye patch on his left eyes, he used his shining right one to observe the pair.

“Who have you dragged in my club, Kat?” Oh he knew the feline well, but had never met royalty before. Really, he’d shit a brick if he knew who she was. Did the Princess want to be incognito? Kat chewed her bottom lip and wound her tail around the bar manager’s throat in a sensual manner. “My Mistress. We want your biggest and baddest boof head to turn into cat food.” She giggled as she wiggled and shot her Mistress a wink.

“Ahahaha, really. Well, I think my punters might enjoy the show. ROCK, come here.”

Rock happened to be a mountain of a man, who didn’t look to have any brains to speak of. Kat’s eyes slowly went up till she could see the fat neck and then the triple chins. What a boof head.

https://i2.wp.com/nerdrating.com/files/2013/07/ultimate_warrior.jpg

“Grrrrrr.” He didn’t like the kitty one bit, cause she was such wicked looking thing. Kat pouted at him, and then turned her head shyly towards the bar manager. Kat was trying not to laugh. The guy’s painted face and shocking hairdo was too much. Had he fallen from an 80’s time machine and landed in hell?

“Three rounds, tag team. Mistress, me and…Pebbles.”

“ROCK!” The man mountain roared.

“Oh sorry, I figured people would call you Pebbles due to the size of your nuts.”

What would Sayaka say?

Those fiery gold eyes seemed to go right back to their icy selves as the Princess followed Kat into the club. Sure enough, the place reeked of testosterone for those of the higher senses, especially for females; Sayaka didn’t care for it, and she actually had to vie for a straight face so that her toes and face didn’t curl up from the stench. She kept her left hand tightly gripping the sheath of her sword, her right hand tensed in such a way that it wasn’t noticeable to the idiots surrounding them, but to Kat it would have been, that she could draw the weapon in an instant without warning. An old habit acquired by years upon years of training.

She was aware of the lustful stares which followed her frame, and she ignored the fact of the whispers; she wasn’t a fool, she had the brain needed to imagine what they could have been discussing, and her eyes weren’t so bad that she couldn’t perceive the erections within the men’s pants. Hmph.. fools all of them, though more than one gave an audible gulp of fear once her icy stare had been turned on them. The very way she held herself and the icy look in those burning golden orbs said it all: she could cut their dicks and balls from their bodies in an instant and walk away without any remorse. Sayaka stayed silent for the most part during the conversation with the owner, till the beef-head decided to show up.

“…Hmph. I don’t think his balls are the only thing that’s small my dear. Hmm… I have a better idea.”

Sayaka gave a small smirk as she drew her sword without a word, giving several men the impression she was insane and about to try and kill the guy, but that was a ruse as the very moment her sword was stabbed into the ground with a clang, her smirk widened into a small, but twisted grin as she began to pull on the power of her flames slowly. It was the same grin that she’d had in the throne room, but unlike before she was in control.

https://i1.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/812ed74a3fdeff065717863eae4ae821.png
“If he can get passed my sword, I’ll hand him the win, and quite a bit of money to go with it. Say…. two thousand in gold? I’ll also be fighting alone this time, let’s see if you can do it.”

Oh Sayaka was definitely toying with the owner and the brute, oh she was having some fun with this. Not only was she insulting the brute, but she was also placating the owner while aiming for his temper as well. It was like she was slowly becoming a different person, far more . . . conniving. Several of the men that had been eyeing her figure through her clothing were beginning to laugh, but others who were on the smarter side of things could tell that she was serious and were going wide-eyed in shock, while others still could almost see the sinister aura that was beginning to emit itself from her frame which only made them gulp visibly while move several feet further away.

Sayaka moved with a soft rustle, not losing her smile as she waited for his response, that grin gleaming while her aura slowly enveloped her while she pulled more and more on the flames, feeling her power rising, her Demonic Aura pushing into her while her flames leaked their power into her. What would be their response?

This was the moment that Katrina had been waiting for. Her Mistress didn’t let her down when she showed that she was more than ready to get into training. The fight club patrons were not aware that this was all good practice in learning how to control the curse. By having the thick as a Brick “Rock” as the crash test dummy. As much as Katrina would have loved to get a chance to tag her Mistress, she knew when to put up her paws and let it be a one on one competition. A little shrug from the cat woman’s shoulders showed that she wasn’t miffed about missing out on scratching Rock’s eyes out.

“Guess you’re not going to get a little pussy tonight, Pebbles.” She gave the wrestler a pat on his chest and then grimaced, cause his skin was soaked in baby oil. Kat smeared her hand on the fight club owner, before dancing off to the bar, and climbing up on the top of it, so she could get a much better view of the show.

Sayaka drew her sword in a fluid motion and this brought gasps and some applause from the mostly male audience. Her weapon was pretty impressive, and while the Rock was more of a hands on fighter, he tried not to be intimidated by her actions. He snorted loudly through his large nostrils, getting a bit of snot on the back of the fight club manager’s head.

“If he can get passed my sword, I’ll hand him the win, and quite a bit of money to go with it. Say…. two thousand in gold? I’ll also be fighting alone this time, let’s see if you can do it.”

A huge cheer erupted from the bar, and Katrina was already dancing up and down – swinging her tail as she watched on with a sinful grin. That was some wager, and she knew that the manager could barely knock back that amount of coin. It was more than he made in a week.

“You’re on, Wench.” The dwarf said, pointing a gnarly finger at her, before stepping back and allowing the Rock full access at the Princess. Another cheer and then money started changing hands in earnest, while the Rock started to flex and roll his shoulders. He even went as far as to crack his neck, then give his budgie smugglers a good tug. Yes, he was wearing gold wrestler speedos. For such a big man, he didn’t look to be packing more than a dead bird. Nothing to write home about. Seems Kat was spot on with the pebble remark. The Rock beat his chest with his fists, causing a spray of that baby oil to get in the eyes of the front row spectators. Having that all over his body, surely was a fire hazard.

https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTI1wG0doCdKEJhgc5oTtJSZ5toVdbeKuFYFOMk6EJhtInaE_0J

The Rock was finally ready, and pointed at Sayaka.

“Going to break that sword, and throw you over my shoulder to have for later, after I get my money!” Cocky son of a bitch.
The Rock started a run at the Princess of Wrath and his right hand shot out to try and seize the handle of the sword, to wrestle it from Sayaka’s grip.

Watching up on the bar, Katrina put her hand over her eyes, but peeked between the break in her fingers.

“I can’t watch…but the suspense is killing me.”

Keikai vs Kasumi

https://i1.wp.com/i59.tinypic.com/wwmb20.jpg

– Keikai would find that his attack wasn’t as effective as he wanted it to be but still achieved the results he had wanted. Following the attack the female released a heat wave followed by a shift in her appearance and structure around , she now held various floating apparitions around her and he would intercept the one that had came at him as she yelled out a technique . Keikai cloaked his arms and shot both of them forward as if he was firing a beam , and out came a large stream of dark miasma in which he replied-

” Hazy Stream ! ”

– The stream grew in size and spiralled as it had grown so dense as to envelop the dense flames ; however it would not destroy the flame it did however slow it down and ” cloud ” it’s purpose , making it easy to move out of . If it wasn’t as dense as it was, it would’ve been consumed altogether by the fog , Keikai took that moment to leap high into the sky and come crashing down towards the Fox with a descending kick imbued with the foggy enhancement once more . He didn’t seem like he was letting up , nor was he planning on doing so anytime soon. The female he was fighting was more resistant then he has soon so far. If the attack landed it would flood the main ground with a thick fog . If it had missed the fog would’ve rose around his feet and spiral upwards like a dense wall encasing him in this element. Regardless of how things were progressing , it was clear this battle was far from over.-

https://i2.wp.com/i62.tinypic.com/4grm8j.jpg

– Celtan was confused at the sudden bravado that was shown , the male didn’t seem like this earlier ; but it had surprised him to say the least. This new side had gotten to him and caused him to lose his coffee and the orb in which he held , did they hold much importance to him ? Not really , however upon those attacks coming as rapidly as they did they sliced the cup and carved into the orb . How was Celtan to respond ? He leaped off his seating in a rushed motion ; causing the air around his position to explode and have him land a couple meters behind without realizing what he had done . He stood on the other edge of the top of the temple.-

” You owe me 1.75 for that decaf . ”

– Celtan then realized that at this moment he was further away then Grant was from the pedestal at the top of the pyramid. Celtan’s face grew quite annoyed at the action he had taken before glaring at the male with his menacing eyes . Most people would be automatically terrified by being near a Terakian but it’s apparent that some people are exceptions to the rule . This person had begun to tick him off , and boy Celtan was annoyed at the way he had leaped too far out of bounds. Grant now had a chance at reaching for the item and the Terakian was extremely annoyed at it as well. In a matter of seconds , a dark aura once more grew around him and within his arms a thick dark magic grew and his claws had grown ; lastly but not least a invisible pair of creatures made themselves visible to Grant’s eyes . –

Abyssmal Core Finale Begins

 

Razorbackwriter:  

Abyssmal Center Temple

Where on earth did Grant’s sword technique come from? The only swords he had before he met the Queen were fake ones that he used when he dressed up as Deadpool. The way he went into the sword attack, on Celtan was like something out of a Jackie Chan movie. Was it at all possible that watching enough anime and action movies had left an imprint in his mind of how to react in a real fight? So far on this quest he had been lucky…very lucky. But the attack, that was not luck. In fact, he sliced right through the coffee cup and knocked the orb clear from Celtan’s hand. Celtan jumped back in fright. Yes, fright. He hadn’t expected this sort of showdown, not from a klutz like Grant. In his haste, he had leaped to the other side of the temple, leaving Grant now facing the ultimate prize of this quest. The very thing that had called out to him back at the restaurant.

” You owe me 1.75 for that decaf . ”

“Only girls drink that shit.” Grant replied, a slight high pitch in his voice, as he quickly re-sheathed his weapons. He took in the distance that separated them now, and the fact that the mask…was right …there. His eyes flashed up at Celtan before he let out a roar and ran for the mask, going into a dive in the closing seconds and skidding along till his hands caught the mask up in its grasp.

“I got it!” The inside of the mask gleamed at him with a magical like sheen, that was practically luring him to try it on. It was the time, for the final battle….and with the mask on, there would be no stopping him. He brought the mask up to his face and like lightening it locked on, causing Grant to scream and howl in protest as his body rose up off the ground, the man clawing at the mask as it was almost fusing with his soul. It was the perfect fit. A hurricane like whirlwind whipped up and around him, spinning the man like he was Dorothy from Kansas. The screams faded and was replaced by a foul and sinister laugh. What dropped from the hurricane was a being that looked nothing like Grant. The face….oh god the face.

“EHEHEHEHEHEEHEHEHEHEHE!” The laughter was loud, just as loud as the outfit that Grant was now wearing. But he was no longer Grant…..he was..Irasho

https://38.media.tumblr.com/47bdf92657e4ff76356adfbe6fa61456/tumblr_mmm6qyOWpZ1s9eamgo1_500.gif

He pulled at the edges of his own face, and you could see the skeleton in behind. White gleaming teeth and eyes that were not properly in their sockets. The mask didn’t just affect his face, it also changed his body, which was becoming almost elastic. He was like a living breathing loony tune. Those blades, that he had been wearing on his back….became ten times there normal size and he withdrew them both with a sickening scraping sound…like fingernails down a black board.

“Makes your toes curl, doesn’t it?” Irasho’s tongue poked out but it was forked like a snake. This was the power of the mask, to make the unbelievable, believable. He twirled the two massive blades over head like he was making his own helicopter.

“You’ve been a great audience but its….time to fly.” Irasho started to take off from the ground in what could best be described as the most ingenious getaway.

“You’re turning into a nuisance.”

Kasumi’s crimson eyes glowed brightly as her hair wove around softly, the force of the Kamaitachi themselves causing a small tailwind as they swirled around her at a rapid rate. For the sake of time, the man’s technique had saved his ass, but it was rather annoying that he’d thought it up. Oh well, Kasumi’s only thought was on the fight itself, staying alert enough to handle him and buy Grant more time. Kasumi pushed with everything she had in both feet, her form blinking between one spot and the next thanks to her speed boost. At that point, Kasumi’s body and the surrounding ground had begun to emit flames which were long and thin, swirling around her with the appearance of a burning stream of wind.

Kasumi didn’t dare to attack that damnable fog that was emitted by the male, too many risks and she was twice as conscious after what had happened to her arm. Instead she waited for the exact moment it dissipated, curling her fingers while forming an orb of condensed flames which emitted small tendrils. That was actually the special attribute of her flames while in Flaming Persona, they acted like wind and dealt their damage by staying in a hyper-density and high-energy form to slash through things instead of simply burning them alone. Kasumi looked up at the male with now blue eyes, dull and blank as her hair slowly shifted to white, including her ears and tails.

https://31.media.tumblr.com/6e7d309987272829c55ea881c4b84f80/tumblr_inline_nbpdws4tXZ1skyq7x.gif
“Enough games I suppose, I’m going to end this now, one way or another.”

Kasumi’s hand began to shake as the flame in her hand grew stronger, the tendrils blazing about in a spiral that moved erratically as though being blown about by a storm that never ended; at the same moment of course, Kasumi’s three Kamaitachi began to spin around her hand quickly, just before she slammed the orb into the ground with every ounce of strength that she had, letting the flame itself explode while the Kamaitachi slammed into it with pure brute force, hiding Kasumi’s entire form from sight in a split second in a swirl of flames and dust.

She actually had two different uses for that little idea, doing what she just finished and using one of her more powerful techniques. Instead this was more of a distracting motion, she had a different idea up her sleeve at the moment. Soon enough, the flames that surrounded her actually began swirling down once more, causing the dust to blow away as it was revealed for her to be standing with her left hand raised, a sword in it as the flames began to condense themselves to it, blazing upwards as though they were trying to escape the confines of some great wall that controlled them and kept them where they were.

“Daisuke Family Art…”

Kasumi brought the sword down, curving the strike as she made a single, extremely fast and strong slash from the right side. The flames bent and twisted, moving like a whip would as she swung at the male, the flames slashing through and tearing down plants and trees and even rocks as it passed through them. Should this have hit the male in the process, the fiery “whip-blade” would have sliced through his body with ease. This was one of her family’s techniques, one that required this form and was actually a revised form of another.

“Plasma Blade!”

– Keikai would grow annoyed at the persistence of the female as she performed another technique , which she had claimed to have been a Family Art of sorts . Keikai dissipated into Dark Fog after looking off into the distance and spotting something flying away that didn’t appear as his Boss . His voice echoed out as he left –

– Celtan would claim as he saw the person leave with the item , the dungeon slowly began to fall apart and distort . This land’s purpose has been fulfilled and no longer has any reason to exist, as evident by the fact several portals appeared across the sky and on the ground floors , the land was rejecting the people inside and as a result they wouldn’t have much more time here until they returned to Alteria’s lands. Celtan closed his eyes and stayed where he was , as Keikai appeared by his feet and in a knelt down position near his side. –

Abyssmal Core Arc Complete ===> Siege of Hellgate Prison Arc

 

Razorbackwriter:  

[ 2nd Dungeon] : Abyssmal Core

For once it seemed that Grant had not been foolish. Though in reality he was not currently Grant, but Irasho. With the mask on, he had won the quest and staying around to mix it with Celtan was foolhardy. Flying up and away like a type of gyro copter, it would mean the end of not only the temple, but the whole dungeon itself. You could hear the very stones pulling away from each other, then crashing down till they were completely breaking in on themselves. Everything that had been seen faded from view, all behind a grey coloured mist. This formed huge plume like clouds, and as the creature that had been fighting Kasumi fled, Irasho would appear – bursting out of the grey clouds – cackling as he went. It was the most bizarre thing you could ever imagine seeing. The crazy face, that looked nothing at all like Grant.

Down down down he swooped, till he landed with a light bump and the swords slowed to a stop, turning back into their normal size. Kasumi was there, but she didn’t look the same either. All white with strange blue eyes. Wow, she was really pretty, if you liked that sort of thing.

Sliding his swords back into their sheaths, Irasho reached up with a gloved hand and started to pull off the mask carefully. The thing was, his face seemed to be fused to it, and it was turning into a bit of a battle to get off. He struggled and fought with it, till finally it came off in his hand with a loud “POP!”

https://i1.wp.com/media.giphy.com/media/YZhZ8jPwr7HYk/giphy.gif

“That was so COOL!” Grant cried out with some enthusiasm. “I was kung fu fightin’ Yeah!” He danced around a bit, doing some funky moves and tripped over his own feet, landing flat on his face. Instead of bouncing back up, he simply held up the mask in triumph, though his face was in the dirt.

“I got it!”

Yes…yes he had.

Kasumi’s eyes faded back to crimson as she finally stopped using her power crazily. A side effect of using both her full power and Hirai Hime’s white lightning caused her hair and eyes to change to that of her father’s, a snowy white and icy blue. Her hair was slowly fading back to auburn now though, her eyes crimson once more as she let Flaming Persona fade away. Flaming Persona was a technique in which the user set their own resolve ablaze, igniting it and causing their flames to take on a new form and grant the user new powers based on that. It was created by her uncle… and it was the technique which unleashed her full power in its greatest level.

Kasumi slowly was changing back to her one-tail form, but she was breathing heavily and wincing in pain, her left arm gripping her right as tightly as she could, her knuckles turning white from the pressure thanks to the pain coming back redoubled. White Lightning had a nasty side effect on her, that it caused intense pain, though normally it wasn’t this bad; Flaming Persona caused the user to be nullified to pain, however the side effect was that when exited, they experience it all tenfold.

Kasumi looked over to Grant with a small chuckle, her smile returning as she pushed the male out of her mind for the time being. Grant obviously was too excited about the mask to notice they needed to get out of there, so she did it the easy way. Well, it was easy for her anyway. Kasumi grabbed Grant’s hand with her left and began pulling him towards the nearest portal fast as possible without causing him harm and herself anymore pain.

It was funny how Kasumi still liked to call Grant an idiot, which he was. Without the mask on, he was just that ordinary geeky guy, but with the mask on he was capable of great and crazy feats. It was better than any cosplay outfit and already the young man was planning on using it for the next convention. Its odd how adrenalin affects a guy. He was still so pumped from the adventure, that even after his face hit the dirt he was excited and still vocalizing the joy of his win. The mask was his, and the adventure was over….almost. The dungeon was collapsing and they really needed to get out of there.

“You idiot, we need to get out of here first! Though, I must applaud you for having done so.”

“I applaud me! Hip Hooray!” He cried, as he was dragged along by the feisty Kitsune. Grant stumbled and then got into the run as they raced for the nearest portal, to be free of the dungeon once and for all. “Weeeeee!” His enthusiasm was going into overdrive.

“Here we go!” The pair jumped into the portal, which sizzled and then radiated a large blast of light, before disappearing with a loud pop. Where would they end up?

The Neon district.

[ 2nd Dungeon] : Abyssmal Core (4) – Shattered Dimensions.

The battle now intensifies with the plucky Kitsune and the crazy comic book nerd going head to head with some of Gizora’s most sinister villains.

 

Kiri:  Kasumi gave possibly the most vicious growl one could expect from her, a growl which was utterly unnerving. She didn’t sound like she could be considered anything remotely human, in fact you might have thought she was a Demonic Kitsune. She wasn’t playing with the Terakian, in fact the Jaki that began to blaze around her looked like it was as sinister if not more sinister than the aura surrounding the Terrakian. And it didn’t disappear when Kasumi slammed her palm against her face at the challenge that Grant put to the male.

With not a word, Kasumi simply reached out and aimed to grab at Grant’s collar. Should she have, she would have picked the boy up like a wolf would its pup, only to throw, yes throw, him straight clear across the pond. A scream from her to follow.

“You go ahead dumbass! He’s obviously not someone who will dance battle you! Now….. you..! You deal with me!”

The last two halves were aimed at the Terrakian, a demonic look in her eyes as her Jaki swirled around her, a bright orange of varying shades. A color that her uncle’s Jaki had been. Kasumi’s appearance changed slightly as her fangs extended and her claws did as well; the fur on her tail bristling as it lashed back and forth, her legs spreading to shoulder length as her weight shifted to the balls of her feet. Ready to fight, to kill if she had to. Hirai Hime was in her right hand as well, and she wasn’t afraid to use that weapon. Nor any of her abilities as a Kitsune. Fire Fear, but also Creation Fear. The Concept of Fear was born between the relationship of humans and Yokai. It’s what a particular person was feared for. Which is why Kasumi was dangerous for a Creation Fear user, as she also had her Fire Fear to account for. But perhaps that wouldn’t be needed.

” You Bastard ! ”

– Keikai would see that one of the explorers had flown across the pond and beyond the barrier. That had automatically settled in the fact of who could progress. This would also verify the fact that Keikai had failed what he had came for. That moment was followed with a large dark fog slowly covering the area and encasing them both . He was enraged, his sclera turned black and his arms tensed . He was no push over , and he instantly closed the distance between him and Kasumi ; intentionally missing and punching the ground near she had stood ; causing it to quake and split which in turn caused chunks of earth to fly about and hit whatever it had came at . His arm was encased with a dark fog , his eyes glaring at the target whether or not it was hit by the shards . The male wasn’t playing around , nor was he intending on going easy on a woman . –

– There it was . The Center of the Maze. The Finale has arrived. The land in which the Shattered Item was located , the temple towered quite high but the item was seen hovering just at the top . Will Grant run and claim it ? There seemed to be a lurking dangerous energy nearby , but what was it ? –

 

Razorbackwriter:  

Abyssmal Pond

In her anger at the crazy comic con conventionalist’s bizarre attempts to get the shady character to duel him with a dance off, the kitsune remarkably went and did something that was exactly NOT what Keikai wanted at all. To have the young white and grey haired lad tossed like last week’s garbage across the Abyssmal pond. Grant cartwheeled in the air like a circus performer, his shady glasses slipping from his face and landing with a kersplosh in the waters of the pond. It was only when he flew right over the water, that he came to land with a few bum smacking skids on the other side. He reached the centre of the Maze.

“Ow Ow Ow Ow.” He cried for each time his bum smacked the earth. Dazed and shocked at the strength of the Kitsune, he got up to stand wobbly, and then realized exactly where he was.

“I’m here….I’M HERE!”

He looked back across the pond, but he saw that the pair were now engulfed in some dark mist making it hard for the young man to see. He brought up his hand as a visor and peered across the other side of the pond. “Kasumi!!! Just stay alive till I get back!!!” he yelled loudly, before gathering himself and turning to face the end of the maze. The quest had brought him this far, and now he was on the right path. Looking up at the magnificent temple that went up into the very errie green clouds, he wondered just what would be lurking to test him this time. Just at the very top, Grant could make out what looked to be the prize. Glowing as it sat atop the tower. Spitting on both hands, he started his climb up the all too tall stone stairs.

Kasumi growled deeply at the male, the Jaki that swirled around her looking like a fiery wind in itself, burning as it wove around her with a mind of its own. Jaki were the demonic auras of Yokai, which could cause corruption in humans if it was strong enough to overpower their will. Kasumi knew that, but the Jaki was the signal she wasn’t holding back. And the further changes that occurred soon after showed she knew she wasn’t going to be able to stay in her one-tail form. Instead, her tail itself began to split, forming into five different auburn tails without the splash of white at the end, now waving behind her as she growled at the man in front of her with anger in her blazing crimson eyes.

Grant’s words made her scoff, muttering to herself a simple ‘yeah right’ comment, even going as far as to say that if she died here it’d contradict what her purpose was. Of course, Kasumi was interrupted mid-thought by the man covering the distance between them and slamming his hand into the ground, causing it to erupt in all directions. Kasumi let out a grunt as she pushed off the ground, leaping from one side to the next as she dodged each piece as fast as she could, using her tails, coated in her Yoki of course, to slash apart some that were clumped together and far harder to dodge.

Jamming Hirai Hime, now shrunken back into its Tanto state, back into its sheath, she moved in a blur, difficult to follow till she finally stopped, only to blast forwards at high speed, her form completely blurring to a point that she was nearly invisible at that speed; her right arm was lifted as her claws lashed out, slicing the air just over the male’s head as her left arm came swinging up in a quick uppercut, having used the attack from her claws to try and get him to duck into the strike and send him into the air with a single attack. If it had worked, the male would have been left stunned while flying through the air, while Kasumi would’ve dashed into the air at top speed like her charge and flipped forwards, slamming her foot down onto his stomach to smash him into the ground with enough force to cause the ground to erupt and quake much like he had done only moments before with his punch.

Keikai vs Kasumi

https://i1.wp.com/i59.tinypic.com/wwmb20.jpg

– Keikai quickly blinked closer to Kasumi as she attempted to feint him with her first attack , the Terakian punched the wrist of the Female with his fogged covered right hand ; causing it to point upwards and slightly sever the connection of the palm to the arm through the force which then was followed with his left fist towards the stomach . That hand didn’t hold any of the fog but did release a giant force if it connected which most likely would have had to due to the fact he intercepted the female’s motion while it was acting out therefore making any other reaction harder to accomplish since it would have to take a longer moment plus their distance between one another was too short. The attack that was supposed to hit his chin couldn’t connect due to his actions and therefore the fist that did connect when it had would cover that arm and make it unusable , what did the fog do to her hand ? –

” You’ve made the wrong choice in choosing me as your opponent. Let’s wrap this up Foxy.”

– As Grant continued to climb and grow closer ; the skies seemed to have grown darker with each second that had passed . Was this an effect of him moving ever closer ? A strange feeling would continue to grow and grow as he motioned ever closer but after he was but a few more meters away a large blast of energy would strike and hit the area not too far above from Grant which had caused it to erupt and crack and possibly make the person tumble back down. Another person appeared in the vicinity , however this person sat directly at the top of the ruins with a small coffee cup in his hand and a orb in the other. –

” Brave Adventurer. You’ve made it all the way here with the tunes of a mysterious figure and doing it as fast as you did hmm. . I reckon it was the voice of the Shattered Item . I wonder if you recognize me without the hood . Once more your plans have been for naught, I will be taking the item . I ; Celtan , the Brain of Gizora will be taking this . ”

– What he said must’ve clearly meant that the voices Grant heard was the supposed treasure of this place . Did that also mean specifically only he could’ve acquired this item and no one else ? That may have been the case . This male didn’t seem friendly , and his body was cloaked in a dangerous aura , how would Grant prevail ? Then again with the power of the Item many things are possible , and somehow Grant has had an extremely lucky streak as of late and it seemed as if the Dark Illusionary Beast from earlier may have hinted that those swords of his may have been the key to prevailing . Seeing as to how swords are usually meant for battling , maybe this was its chosen time. But more importantly , it was Grant’s time to shine.-

Objective : Do whatever it is in your power to get past Celtan through whatever means necessary and obtain the Shattered Item !

Abyssmal Center Temple

Higher and higher he climbed with the air thinning of oxygen but being replaced by something else entirely. A darkness – like the very clouds were charged with some deadly force. This was no mere catch and grab like in an Indiana Jones movie. The prize awaited him at the top, but nothing was meant to be this easy. Up till now, Grant had a run of luck that was simply too good to be true. His choices, though sometimes not entirely wise had gotten him this far. He did have the help of the kitsune, who was now battling it out with that nasty chap across the pond, but Grant was about to find himself facing the one that was there at the start of the journey. Minus the cape this time, minus the hood. He was sitting – waiting with a cup of coffee in one hand and an orb in the other. How long had he been here, and how was he able to reach the height of the tower, considering that he couldn’t possibly be human. He called Grant a brave adventurer. Brave? Not totally, more like he had a lot of luck. Making it to the top on the words of the riddler, the words that guided him through. Those words were said to be sung by the very item itself. Calling directly to the one that was destined to claim it. Grant.

“I wonder if you recognize me without the hood.”

“Yes…you were the guy at the beginning.” Grant was not totally stupid.

“Once more your plans have been for naught, I will be taking the item.” He what? After all this, he wanted it? Some bloke called Celtan who was the brain of Gizora. So, was this a demon? A warlock? He didn’t look like anything fancy, just a bloke having coffee on the temple mount. Grant’s chest puffed out as he reached behind him and withdrew his swords, the same ones that had been given to him by the Queen, the same ones he was willing to throw away when in the mouth of the beast. It was his moment. Human, maybe – but the true fighter beneath was about to have his moment.

Swinging both blades like rotors he then twisted his body so that his right arm slashing across the front of his body with the blade whistling through the air, the blade in his left arm was brought back and up. A flick of wrist and his body reversed the slash back in the opposite direction, followed by a downward slash from his left. One to strike the coffee cup right out of his hand, if the right hand slice hit the orb.

Kiri:  

Kasumi snarled at the male who blocked her feint, which was annoying at this point now, she could feel that her entire arm was dead on the moment he hit her. Shit. Not good, plus she was off-balance because of him blocking her like that, making it harder to defend against his current attack. At least, that’s how it normally would be. Her eyes were hidden for a moment just before a grin spread over her face in an instant, only moments before several swords, all interlocked with each other, erupted from the ground and slammed between her and the male’s fist just in time. Sure, the attack ripped the weapons apart and sent her sliding back from the force of it, but it still saved her…. barely.

“Close one that… heh. I can’t hold back for this, therefore… Daisuke Family Art: Flaming Persona!”

https://i2.wp.com/img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110802131802/bleach/en/images/a/a6/Ep333YamaotoExplosion.png

Kasumi’s entire body was immediately engulfed by a massive eruption of flames that swirled around her, creating a powerful shockwave as it blazed brighter and hotter than almost anything most people would have felt. That inferno itself quickly dissipated, but left standing was Kasumi with three flames blazing circles around in the form of Kamaitachi. This was her Flaming Persona, which also meant she was a hell of a lot faster. Kasumi’s left hand clapped itself onto her right, bracing herself as she blasted her White Lightning right into her nervous system, causing her cells to go berserk as they began trying to fix her arm. She gave a wince as she released her right arm, but lashed her left arm at the male, sending a flame condensed into a high-energy and density form, causing it to blast after him in a crescent shape.

“Razorflame!”

Much similar to how a technique called Razor Wind worked, Razorflame was a technique in which Kasumi condensed her flame into a hyper-density and high-energy state, firing it at the target. The flame itself, because of its now hyper-density and high-energy form, would have sliced through the male like a knife through butter the moment it touched him. Easily. That was the damage of this technique.

 

 

 

 

The Maze of Greed – Part Ten : SS

With Bandit being unable to walk, the Giant Duggie and the little witch have to try and find a way out of the maze….and fast.  The Demoness of Greed is coming….

Scene setting : The Maze of Greed – Seven sins series.

Written with Dessy, Phlyn, and Artie.

 

Dessy:  Mariela looked down to Bandit as she spoke, apparently knowing this “Quinn”. From the sounds of it, Bandit had ran into her… and she didn’t like it very much. Bandit then tried pushing herself up and turning her body to the side. Mariela knew she was in pain, and she frowned. “As soon as we get out here, I’ll promise I’ll help you. I can’t do anymore. Not in the maze.” she said, before looking up over at Raul. She watched the vines wound around his legs and feet. This was good. If he woke up, it’d give them a good chance to get away. But from the way he was hit, Mariela guessed he wouldn’t be waking up anytime soon.

“Nice to meet you, Duggie.” Mariela said, giving a nod of her head in greeting. From the way the giant talked about Quinn, the two seemed pretty close. They seemed like they had a good friendship. Mariela raised an eyebrow at the mention of the maze. “You… work in the maze?” she asked. Then it hit her. Lydia took the maze from somewhere else… she wasn’t sure where, but she had took it from another place. Lydia probably added the creatures herself… she wasn’t sure if the creatures where already there when Lydia yanked it here to Hell.

“Mansion? What “mansion”?” Mariela then asked, tilting her head to the left. This was all very confusing. The maze was brought to Hell from another place… a “mansion” of sorts. And Duggie here had came with it, apparently. But how would Lydia manage to do that… and why? Those were the questions Mariela needed answers to. She gave a gentle smile when he talked about Quinn. “It’s good that she’s such a close friend of yours.”

Mariela then looked down at the hat when he picked it up. She watched him, scared he was gonna ruin it somehow. She opened her mouth to stop him from putting it on, but then he handed it to her and said someone was speaking. She put her head near the hat, hearing Scar screaming her name. “He’s alive.” she mumbled. “Scar?!” she said into the hat, but knew that was probably a stupid thing to do as he probably couldn’t hear her. She just held it against her chest. He was alive… but where was he? That was another question she needed answered. She heard the giant say “little witch”, but there was no “my”. Good thing. She was no one’s property.

She put the hat on the ground, looking at the bottom of the gown as she did so. She pursed her lips, before she reached down and began ripping the bottom of the dress. It’d be easier to walk in it if it was shorter. Once it was shorter, she threw the fabric on the ground. What was once a beautiful dress was now a torn mess. She then proceeded to yank her gloves off, throwing them down as well. She picked the hat back up, looking over just in time to see Duggie stand Bandit up.

“No, no, don’t!” Mariela said, running over to the side of Bandit. “She can’t walk because she can’t feel her legs. That’s my fault, but she’s in no condition to stand.” she said, informing Duggie of her injuries. “You know a way out of this maze?” Mariela asked, hope in her voice. “Good! Great!” she said, happy someone knew a way out. She handed Bandit Scar’s hat, then adjusted her arms so she could pick up Bandit, now holding the girl who couldn’t walk. The small witch was stronger than she looked, but she knew she couldn’t hold her for long periods of time. Her and Duggie will have to switch back and forth. “I know you probably hate this, Bandit. And I’m sorry. I’ll fix everything once we get out of here. I owe you for making things worse…” she spoke apologetically.

She then looked up at Duggie. “Help us out of this maze, then we’ll help you find Quinn. Okay?”

Phlyn:  Solomon continued to watch from a distance as the giant spoke with the others. Quietly leaning on his cane he watched as the giant tried to pick up the girl and the other rushed over, she mentioned an injury but from that distance he was unable to tell what,where, or how severe. As he watched one of girls begin to carry the othet it appeared evident that those two and the giant would be splitting off from the man sent into the bush, now he had to question himself.

His mind searched as he tried to decide which one to follow to find what he was after. The distance between himself and them was too great to determine anything and not wanting to a risk a conflict with anyone should he draw closer he decided it best to wait it out. Once they started to move he get a little closer and gone fully get his answer.

 

Artie:  Bandit cringed as she was roughly lifted from the ground, a sound of protest coming from her lips quite easily. “Gah!” Though soon she found herself in Mariela’s arms, her own wrapping around the witch’s neck to support herself. She wasn’t too surprised that the witch could lift her – Bandit was actually quite light and small, despite her big attitude. “Yes, I know her. She’s the strictest one on Satan’s guard. Girl’s built like a damn horse.” Bandit huffed, looking up at the sky for a moment. “Anyway.. Yeah. Help us out, and we’ll get you to Quinn. Actually, just mess up big time, and she’ll be here with her whole police force. Guaranteed.” Bandit raised a brow. Sounds like she’d met Quinn before, and not under good circumstances. The blonde felt limp in Mariela’s arms, completely powerless.. But, she felt a bit safer with the giant here.. And seeing Raul’s backside slowly disappear into the vegetation.

 

Razorbackwriter:  The loud sound of howls grew and seemed to be coming from outside the maze. The kingdom of Greed was guarded by hell hounds. Funny, when you think that the one called Quinn was one. The Princess of Greed was now on her way to the maze, since Raul’s spectacular disappearing act from her balcony. Wearing a new outfit, that was black tight pants, under a long flowing dress like jacket, and high collared panels in red and black, the Princess was on a mission. She had missed her chance to take down the Princess of Wrath as she had first planned. Now, the targets were those in the maze. Traitors and betrayers did not sit well with her, not to mention that Raul had just gone into the maze in search of the one that broke the collar. Lydia was bristling with rage and a renewed sense of hatred. But now it was all on display. The good and sweet looking Lydia, the one that butter would not melt in her mouth was gone and replaced by the real deal. The bitch from Hell. With two hell hounds on leashes, she approached the maze entrance with a cocky strut. She could just appear within the maze if she wanted, but Lydia wanted to hunt them down the old fashioned way. With the flair of showmanship, she released the leashes as the hell hounds spirited into the maze at speed.

“Kill them….KILL THEM ALL!” Lydia roared as she let out a green blast of power into the sky, to illuminate and send forth the warning of impending doom.

https://i0.wp.com/38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ma6vbnUV9i1rbdqm3o1_500.gif

Deep within the maze, the Giant raised his head as he heard the all too familiar sound of Hell hounds. Problem was, they didn’t sound like Quinn.

“I think we got company.”

He swung his battle axe up defensively, while Mariela was trying to help lift Bandit. The Giant stared down at the plucky little witch and asked.

“Are you going to be able to run carrying her, little Witch?” the giant was going to try and hold the hell hounds off and give the Witch and the human a good head start.

The game was on.

~RB~

 

Dessy:  Bandit wrapped her arms around Mariela’s neck, and Mariela held the girl with ease. She was lighter then Mariela thought, so it was no effort to carry her. “From how you describe her, I’m guessing she’s the leader of some sort.” Mariela said, giving a shrug of her shoulders. She looked down as Bandit spoke to the giant, and raised an eyebrow at her. Bandit has obviously met Quinn before, and it didn’t sound like a pleasant meeting. But Mariela wouldn’t question it. They had other matters to tend to. She just nodded in agreement to Bandit’s promise to offer their help, for his.

Mariela opened her mouth to speak, but when she heard the howls, she closed it. Well… shit. That didn’t sound good. Hell hounds… not really what they needed at the moment, especially since they just got done discussing Quinn. Mariela gave an exasperated groan – she was so done with all of this. “You’ve got to be kidding me…” she mumbled. “Can I not get a break around here?” she then spoke out loud, mainly to herself more than anyone. She was so done. So very, very done. With all of this. It was obvious Lydia was tracking them now. They really needed to get out.

Mariela looked up as the sky began glowing green. Yeap… definitely Lydia. This was just great. She adjusted Bandit in her arms a little bit, moving Scar’s hat to be held in one of her hands. The giant spoke, and Mariela looked up to see him defensively swinging his axe. “Yeah. The bitch and her pound of hell hounds…” she spoke, narrowing her eyes in frustration. “Not great company.” she spoke. Mariela looked up at him as he looked at her, asking if she needed help, and Mariela shook her head. “I’ve got it… she’s very light. At least for now, I do. I’ll let you know when I’m unable to hold her anymore.” she spoke, looking down at Bandit.

“Are you gonna hold them off so we can get a head start, or are all three of us just gonna make a run for it?” she then asked, looking from the giant, to face forward. This is when the game starts… Lydia’s little game. And they were all part of it. Now, they just had to beat her game.

Phlyn:  Solomon teetered softly leaning on his cane continuing his relentless observation of the group. They continued to talk amongst themselves until the sounds of dogs echoed throughout the maze followed by a bright flash of light. Caught off guard by the sudden events Solomon turned away and when he looked back the group was already up in arms. I suppose this means a battle is imminent with this group as the epicenter my target will be visible soon the thought passed through his head as he gagged his surroundings.

Taking note of all visible walls and corners, there was three people in front of him only one combat ready and an undetermined force closing in. There was no good place to hide and simply observe and he was not known to either party here making him a potential target and with non combatants collateral damage seemed likely. Staring at the giant and the two girls he thought perhaps it best to align himself before the fighting started although it could complicate things later should one of them be his target. His other option was to wait it out, remain a neutral party and avoid the fight hopefully working things out as they happen he wasn’t about to flee and leave a target behind.

decisions like this always troubled him weather or not assist or sit to the side and simply do his job. Regardless of his decision a fight was coming, pushing up of his cane he stood straight and with a calm sigh raised his cane to head level. With his free hand he took hold of a small clasp just beneath the hand and twisted it letting out several clicks as he did so. The rod of the cane shifted revealing several interlocking blades along the length of it. With a quick flick the cane was back at his side the segments loosely clacking together as he held it at the ready. best be prepared it is a bad idea to assume an understanding of the wills of others. With a calm stance he kept watch on the area relaxed and ready to move as the situation demanded, hoping for a simple solution but prepared for the worst.

 

 

 

Ota General Hospital – Part Three : TG.

Sunny’s attempts to help the investigator fall on deaf ears and the young nurse is sent packing.  However, we learn more about the one known as “Wolf”.

Scene setting : Ota General Hospital – Tokyo Ghoul.

Co-written with Temp and Moo.

 

Temp:  Wolf remained still during the Investigators speech, though she did eventually retract her kagune. “I am the gardener among a bed of flowers…plagued with weeds.” She turned her head to look over at the nurse, and then glanced towards the unconscious Investigator. “The weeds need to be exterminated in order for the flowers to fully bloom.” Speaking in metaphors was something she enjoyed doing, regardless of how irritating it might be to others. “I am the gardener, neither weed nor flower…feared by both.” Wolf slowly started to walk towards the Investigator, and didn’t bother with the nurse messing with the woman’s weapon. There was clearly a screw or two loose in the brain of the nurse, and she didn’t want to deal with it. Wolf came to a stop only a few feet from the Investigator, and pulled the hood of her outfit back. She always wore a long black hood trench coat, which hid any defining features of her other than her height and mask. Now that her hood was back, her white hair was released and rested upon her shoulders. “I am not a human, and I am not a ghoul.”Her hands moved to her mask, which she actually pulled off. Her single kakugen and her normal eye were now completely visible, as were her facial features. The Investigator would probably understand her words a bit better now that she could see what she truly was.“One-eyed ghouls are rejected by both ghoul and human…I have no place in this world.” Both of her eyes were locked onto the Investigators as she spoke, and her expression was rather blank.

 

Moo:  The irritation was plain on her face while she stared at the giddy girl. The time it had taken her to retrieve the weapon was at least good for their conversation. Though it was hard to be completely serious with the noisiness of her actions. Gritting her teeth to endure Ms. Sunshine over there, Nikita turned her gaze back to Wolf once again. She had apparently said something right, considering Wolf’s kagune was no longer exposed. She felt only slightly less threatened though… Gardner, huh? she thought as she listened to the ghoul speak. With the first two metaphors, Nikita understood what Wolf’s point was, but she didn’t understand fully how she was different than both races. Until it hit her like a sack of bricks. Who else wouldn’t belong on either side? Only someone who knew the pain of being cast out from both humans and ghouls. Nikita’s head snapped up, eyes widening slightly as her realization timed correctly with the girl’s removal of her hood. I am not human, and I am not ghoul.

Nikita stared, her lips parted slightly as if to question Wolf again. But there was nothing she could bring herself to say for a moment. Instead, she listened to Wolf’s closing on her speech, staring into her eyes–one of which was blackened with a red iris. She was definitely not lying. “…You say that, but…” She was obviously someone with a big role in this play. Did she really take up that logic…killing both kinds would make equality? Was everything still right–was Nikita doing the right thing working with the CCG? “You removed your mask and showed me your face. Do you really believe I’m on your side?” It was definitely true that she was. But for Wolf to have acted like this–did it mean that she was putting trust in Nikita blindly, or was Nikita even going to live through this ordeal? “Wha–“ The woman’s words were cut off as she noticed for the first time that the joyous nurse was swinging around Rupture. It was surprising she was able to lift it like that, considering the quinque’s weight. “Are you a lunatic?” Nikita’s gaze shot back to the nurse briefly. “Put my quinque down and evacuate this floor.” Who could act so silly while they were in front of a ghoul? Especially while investigators were on the scene.

 

Razorbackwriter:  Though Sunny’s intentions were admirable, they were not at all welcomed by the investigator – who not only ordered that the nurse put the weapon down but also to evacuate the floor. Sunny pouted sadly and lowered the weapon when the investigator asked if she was a lunatic.

“I’m just a nurse.” Sunny answered with a hint of sadness. Unusual for Sunny, since she was always so cheery. The nurse set the weapon down on the floor at her feet and then gripped the edges of her uniform before teetering back and forth, her eyes lolling from one side of her head to the other.

The fight had now broken down into more of a verbal stoush, none of which was as exciting as before. One thing was clear though, the nurse was not at all welcomed. It was her right to be on that floor, or any floor for that matter, since she worked in the hospital. Besides, there was an officer down. Shouldn’t someone be checking on the individual? They could be dead.

It took all of Sunny’s fight to remain there. She had an obligation to help those in need, but when the fighters either dissed her, or threw a weapon at her head, they were just as bad as the Matron. Shrugging her shoulders, Nancy headed over to the lift and pressed the down button. Every so often she looked at the pair longingly, then finally the doors opened and she stepped inside, but not without one last peek at what was going on.

~RB~

 

Temp:  Wolf sighed as the Investigator tried to keep up her hostile act, and mentioned the possibility of not being on her side. Based on the way the Investigator carried herself and her weapon, she decided to trust that she was different. “We are similar in our objective, but our methods are different. If you choose to work against me I won’t hesitate to kill you.” It should be perfectly clear by now that Wolf wouldn’t have trouble finishing the woman off. She turned her head to look at the Nurse who seemed to finally realize she was out of place, but turned her attention back to the Investigator. “We don’t have to be enemies, I’m certain you realize that.” This woman would either find a common ground to stand on with Wolf, or she would meet her end. The outcome of all this was fairly clear to her, but there was always room for error and change.

 

Moo:  Seeing as the nurse seemed to comply–despite the time it actually took for her to put the weapon down and start walking away, Nikita let out a small exhale and palmed her face. Any normal civilian would have turned and ran after seeing a ghoul such as Wolf. This woman though…she was weird. After a small shake of her head, Nikita finally dropped her hand and watched as the nurse kept looking back at them. So long as she was safe, it was okay. Although her gaze was brought back to the one-eyed ghoul in front of her while she was addressed again. “In that case, I suppose I ought to make myself clear. I want equality, if not peace, to be obtained between ghouls and humans. In your case, I will turn a blind eye to your work. Never once have I seen you change pattern; so you’ve never killed without a just cause.” At least one that Wolf felt was right. “So yes… I realize we don’t have to be enemies.” Now was the time where she could move slowly, careful not to give Wolf the wrong idea, until she was standing completely upright. “If you don’t mind, I have to take Spider with me.” The woman brushed some dirt from her nurse getup, pulling the skirt down as it had ridden up. She brushed her ponytail back and met Wolf’s gaze again, something shy of a smirk crossing her lips.“My name is Nikita. If you would like to contact me, here’s my cell phone number.” She reached between her breasts with two fingers, pulling out what looked like a business card. Considering she didn’t have her usual clothing on and this damn outfit didn’t have any pockets to make use of, she figured that would be the next best place to store something as useful as that.

 

Temp:  Wolf watched the Investigator as she slowly stood back up, taking note of her careful movements. She moved slowly to prevent a misunderstanding of hostility. Wolf felt no fear for this woman though, so it was unnecessary. Overall, she was pleased that the Investigator wanted peace between humans and ghouls. It surprised her to hear the woman speak of her former kills as just, considering some of them were humans. She must have realized in her time with the CCG that something was ‘off’ with the organization, as well as with some of it’s Investigators. Her requiring Spider made no difference to her, so she nodded in return. The body meant nothing to her after all. Her days of cannibalizing wildly were behind her, now she only did so if it was necessary. She was about to turn and walk away when the woman revealed her name, and even gave her some contact information. Nikita. An interesting human to say the least. She reached out and plucked the card from her fingers, stuffing it into her coat as she continued to stare at her. “My name…” She spoke lightly while returning her mask to her face, and then pulled the hood back up to cover her head. “…is Mina.” It had been a long time since she actually spoke to anyone like this, and not to mention using her real name. “If you ever need me…howl.” Those were her last words before she walked away and jumped through a window, making her way back out into the city.

Moo:  With the nurse safe and knowing she could have Spider for the CCG, Nikita felt pretty relieved. And despite everything not going according to plan, she was able to leave this place without being injured–or killed, for that matter. Kato would also be okay, more than likely. Having had the card taken from her, Nikita gazed at Wolf, who actually ended up calling herself Mina as her face was once again taken up by that infamous mask. If you ever need me…howl. It was noted as the woman watched her new acquaintance walk away, jumping through a window. Standing there for a few moments, Nikita gazed after her, though she was more or less just looking out to the skyline. Shaking her head briefly, she sighed and walked to pick Rupture up off the floor. It would be placed back in her suitcase before she walked back toward Kato’s still body. It would be convenient if he woke up at this time. If not, Nikita would have to bring the gurney over and lift him onto it. As for Spider…

Taking her cellphone from between her breasts–her current storage–Nikita flipped it open and clicked for a speed dial. Upon someone answering rather formally, she replied. “Spider has been dealt with.” A brief pause before adding, “Ota General Hospital, top floor, east wing. Collateral damage minimum.” Closing her phone and tucking it away again, she knelt down next to Kato, pressing her fingers to his throat. As she suspected, he was alive. Very much so. Her hand slid to his shoulder where she would give him a gentle shake. “Kato. Wake up, Kato.” Pulling her hand away, she gazed down at his face. Was it going to be okay to keep this a secret from him? She could trust Kato, but she didn’t need him involved in some way that would complicate things. It would be some time before she decided. In the meantime, she would develop a story based on how much detail he remembered.

 

Temp:  Kato had been unconscious for several minutes, and had subconsciously heard some strange things. These things were pulsing through his mind and forming into a strange sort of dream. He heard someone state their name, speak about flowers, some sort of giddy sounding chick, concrete crunching and grinding together…none of it really made any sense. It was all incoherent and jumbled together, and was then coated in a constant static. There was no way he would be able to piece it together. Perhaps the dream would come back to him in the future.

The sounds around him were fuzzy as his eyes opened and wandered about the hallway, but eventually locked onto Nikita. “Wha…what…happened?” The last thing he remembered he was in the hall and saw Spider and something else. Everything after that was black. Did he get knocked out or something? He slowly sat up and looked around him for any clues as to what happened, but ultimately didn’t find much. Eventually he stood up and rubbed the back of his head. “Don’t tell me I missed the fight.” His words were pretty much met with an answer as he looked to the side and noticed Spider, who was very very dead. “Shit.” So he had fucked up, right? Hopefully Nikita wouldn’t lecture him into the next century.

 

Moo: Apparently Kato was going to be easy to wake up. Nikita found herself feeling a little more at ease as her shoulders relaxed and she gave a soft exhale. It seemed as though he didn’t remember much, with the way he was tossing questions. He apparently came to somewhat of an assumption–probably one that involved her strict lecturing. She smiled a little gently instead, standing with him now. “You worried me there for a second, Kato.” Could she pull it off… that only a few minutes had gone by?“Apparently Spider was prepared for a few extra guests. There was a nurse here with him, but I had her evacuate the floor.” This would work, right? Hopefully. “He was about to feed from her when he noticed us. You probably saw him leap at you from that girl. It had us both surprised… I was able to throw him back with Rupture before he harmed you, fortunately.” She lifted her hand and placed it firmly on his shoulder, giving it a slight squeeze. “Be on guard next time. We can’t afford you passing out again.” Now hopefully Kato would assume the rest. She had implanted enough of a story that he could piece the rest together; logically, he would assume she had taken Spider down on her own, and it would be left up to his imagination as to how fast the ghoul had actually been dealt with. Lifting her hand to fix some of her bangs, Nikita smirked a little then, looking satisfied. Of course it was a front. “The mess will be dealt with… But more importantly, do you feel alright? It looked as though you hit your head pretty hard.”

Temp:
Kato rolled his shoulders a bit to try and relieve the stiffness of his muscles, and shook his head rapidly to try and wake up. “Sorry Ma’am, I’ve still got a lot to learn it seems.”How the hell did Spider manage to knock him out so quickly? Spider was a dangerous ghoul, but he was in no way a quick or tactical combatant. It was completely out of character for him to subdue a target. As odd as it was there was no reason for him to doubt his superior. “Thanks for handling it, you weren’t hurt right?” He hoped that she had taken care of Spider without issue, and not been wounded. There were no clear wounds on her that he could see, but he needed to be sure. His vision soon drifted to Spider’s body. It didn’t really look like a typical kill from a quinque at all. Still, doubting Nikita’s explanation was silly. He turned back to look at her as she asked him how he felt, giving her a quick nod. “I’m fine, surprisingly.” There was something strange about all this, but he couldn’t quite figure out what it could be.

 

 

 

 

Ota General Hospital : Part Two – TG.

Sunny the nurse has walked in on a fight between an investigator and a suspected ghoul, right on the top floor of the Ota General Hospital.  Will the nurse flee, or stay for the show?

Scene setting : Ota General Hospital – Tokyo Ghoul.

Written with Temp and Moo.

 

Temp:  The Investigators jump had saved her from any sort of damage or disable, but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. Once she had slid past her she came to a stop, and then stood back up. Her single red eyes immediately locked onto the woman across from her, and was followed by a small giggle. “If I was really resisting, you and your partner would be very dead.” Wolf stepped forward as she released her Kagune, which shot out from her upper back. The very strange and metallic white Ukaku almost seemed to shine in the dark of the room. Due to this being a close quarters combat situation, her Ukaku projectiles would make quick work of this woman. “Are you sure you want to fight me? I mean…really…fight me?” She’d not even used her Kagune yet, and had only shown it. Not to mention she still had her trump card, her Kakuja. Killing this Investigator wasn’t something she wanted to do, but beating the shit out of her was a completely different story.

 

Moo:  Landing back on her feet to whip around, Nikita let out a breath, inhaling again through her nose to keep it even. It was strange to hear Wolf giggle; it caused Nikita to blink, looking slightly surprised. Her grip tightened on her quinque, however, when she spoke. As light as her tone was, her words were heavy. Needless to say, she felt threatened hearing the ghoul ask about fighting. The sight of her kagune was strange, but nothing could come as a surprise to Nikita when she knew Wolf cannibalized.“….” Silence would greet Wolf for a few moments, until the woman felt like being ballsy again and simply rushed to swing her sword again. Unfortunately Rupture was good for damaging attacks, due to its size. Kato’s quinque–Viper as he called it–was much faster and would more than likely fair better against Wolf. Nikita’s size and build would have to make up for what her weapon lacked. Now wasn’t the time to question if it was worth the effort. Both of them were holding back for obvious reasons, and they needed to be discussed. “…You’re the most peculiar ghoul I’ve ever laid eyes on,” she confided. “What are your motives?” If she couldn’t neutralize Wolf before questioning her, Nikita would simply do it in the midst of battle, should it continue.

Razorbackwriter:  Sunny was thrown back as the lift came to life again, only this time the lights on the floor panel all lit up and the lift roared upward. It was like the lift had a mind of it’s own and wasn’t stopping at her designated floor. The nurse’s bright jade coloured eyes burst open as she was overcome by a sense of fright. Unusual for the plucky nurse, but when unexplained events like this occur, the nurse was human just like everyone else and feared something was not quite right. With a loud bang the lift finally stopped at one of the upper floors. Sunny placed a hand to her rounded bosom and let out a sigh of relief as the doors slowly slid open. The only problem was the lights outside the lift were flickering, and not only that; there was a strange smell. Like…gunpowder and…blood. Blinking, Sunny took a few steps forward before her head could be seen as she surveyed the hall outside the lift.

“H..Hello?” She whispered out. The floor was not at all crowded like the other ones. This one was practically deserted. It was most unusual. Treading carefully, the nurse stepped out of the lift and she could just hear a voice that was coming from the eastern part of the floor.

“…You’re the most peculiar ghoul I’ve ever laid eyes on.”

Sunny gasped. A ghoul was on this floor? Sunny didn’t know what to do. Should she get back into the lift or should she investigate? Plucking up her courage, Sunny tip toed along the corridor towards where the voices were coming from.

~RB~

 

Temp:  Wolf wasn’t very impressed by the Investigators movements or fighting style, but that was due to her clearly not fighting like her life was on the line. Then again, Wolf wasn’t fighting like that either. This Investigator likely knew more about Wolf than most, which could mean she was a high ranking member of the CCG. The silence that she was met with from the woman was somewhat expected, and so was her second attempt at attacking her. Most Ukaku users were very mobile and relied on their projectile weaponry, so if you were to close the distance you’d have an advantage, but Wolf was different. When the sword came down towards her she used her kagune to slam into the sides of the blade, effectively holding it in position and keeping it from hitting her.“Motives? I seek justice.” She would then raise one of her legs and attempt to slam it into the woman’s chest. The kick would obviously be much stronger than any humans kick, and would likely disarm the Investigator when combined with her holding her weapon in place. The presence of another within the area was something she had picked up on, but it would go ignored unless the human came into sight.

 

Moo:  Nikita’s arm jerked to the side as her weapon was held in place. The first half of it retracted back to its normal shape, but from the point of contact with Wolf’s kagune up to where the woman stood, the weapon would still be broken apart. Nikita glared at Wolf the moment she opened her mouth to speak, Justice? The slamming of the ghoul’s foot to her chest sent her reeling back, letting go of her quinque to fall back on her ass. The air left her lungs for a moment and she gasped to get it back, sweating lightly as she grimaced. But she wouldn’t let up; she looked up toward the petite ghoul and finally found enough air to speak again as she held her chest tightly. “You don’t kill investigators. You cannibalize ghouls who kill needlessly. What are you? A vigilante? GIVE ME A BREAK.” She panted from using little breath for a lot of words. “You have too much attention on you from the CCG. Why don’t you hate us yet?” Nikita was of course unaware of the innocent nurse nearing the scene, as delicate as her footsteps were. The action dragged her attention away from noises such as a whispered hello. “… You want equality. We’re not so different, you and I.”

 

Razorbackwriter:  The bright eyes of our innocent little nurse were now wide as ever as she chanced upon a battle that was going on right on one of the higher floors of the hospital. It was almost unreal to think that the CCG would dare take on a ghoul or…whatever it was in such a place. From what Sunny could see, there was a little wolf masked ghoulie thingy fighting against what had to be an investigator. One thing was for certain, the investigator was taking a right beating, being kicked in the stomach and sent flying onto her ass.

Sunny’s head bobbed about as she clasped her hands together. “Oooo that looks like it hurt.” The nurse now giving her own little commentary on the action. If she had a flag and a bleacher it would be sport. Keeping in behind one of the laundry hamper trolleys, the nurse kept bobbing up and down like she was afraid of a projectile or body coming her way.

“You don’t kill investigators. You cannibalize ghouls who kill needlessly. What are you? A vigilante? GIVE ME A BREAK.”

Sunny did a little fist pump and then rolled her hand like she was barracking. “You tell em!” Talk about going from shit scared to suddenly enthusiastic. To be honest, this was the most exciting thing to happen during her shift. Again she ducked up and down, offering a thumbs up when she could.

~RB~

 

Temp:  Wolf smirked as the Investigator was flung back by her attack, and was now in possession of her quinque. The presence of the other human was made quite clear to the both of them when she decided to speak. Was she out of her mind? Wolf tilted her head to the side curiously as the Investigator continued to lecture her, but she only let out another giggle in response. Using her kagune she flung the Investigators weapon back towards the human that had been commenting on their fight. The weapon would wizz just past the girls head and smash into the wall behind her, causing half the weapon to be lodged in the wall. “I only kill those that deserve it.” Her form of justice was deep within ‘evil’ territory, but her cause was just. The fact this human wanted equality was also something she found very interesting, but just how true was it? The fact the woman didn’t go all out on her certainly supported her claim. “Equality can only be gained through blood, and both Ghoul and Humans must die to obtain it.” In order for there to be peace, the instigators of war needed to be silenced, which is what Wolf was aiming to do.

 

Moo:  Nikita stared at Wolf while she giggled before her attention was grabbed by a rather loud nurse. Blinking, the investigator stared at the woman, her mouth forming the words what the… How could someone cheer her on so loudly and carelessly? Did that nurse not value her own life? She flinched while she watched the weapon fly toward her cheer leader’s head, though it would miss quite luckily. And another problem within itself…Nikita no longer had a quinque she could reach easily in case she needed to. Then again, Nikita realized that this ghoul was not like others as she began explaining it.“That’s a vague generalization,” she muttered, sitting up fully with her hands on the floor. Her eyes had wandered from the nurse back to Wolf, narrowed completely. Hearing equality being obtained through blood, she suddenly found herself remembering what Ruvik and Kato had been debating about in the cafe. “… As long as there’s bloodshed, I doubt either side is going to seek peace. Regardless who’s doing the killing, there will always be a scapegoat. And it will always be the opposing side.” Somehow, this chain of events was slowly changing Nikita’s mind. “I want the same thing, but how easy is it to accomplish?” It was very scarce to find ghouls and humans with mindsets similar to theirs, after all.

 

Razorbackwriter:  Sunny was in the worst possible place to suddenly think it was alright to cheer on as a spectator to what was a life and death fight between an instigator and a ghoul. It brought the attention of both combatants squarely in her direction. The wolf like ghoul being so annoyed that she hurled a weapon straight for Sunny’s head – barely missing it by inches and cutting straight into the wall behind her.

“Not..good….Not…good.” The Nurse squeaked as the weapon was wobbling back and forth from the force of the impact. This was serious, and not to mention, it was the investigator’s weapon that was stuck. The poor girl! Sunny, had to help. She plucked up the courage, shouting out. “I got it!” literally grabbing onto the end of it and trying to pull it free from the wall. She dangled and swang back and forth – grunting and pulling with all her might. Truth was, Sunny was good at helping patients get in and out of bed, getting a weapon that was stuck in a wall out….that was another story. Every so often you could see her swinging back and forth, crying out hopefully that she would have it out of the wall real soon…..any moment. Yes, the clock is ticking.

Finally a crack appeared and with the weight of the nurse on the one end, the wall gave way….as did Sunny and both she and the weapon crashed to the floor behind the laundry trolley.

“I got it!”

Sunny held it up triumphantly with a look of pure satisfaction that her valiant efforts paid off.

Gingerly, the nurse stepped out from behind the trolley and swung the weapon before giggling. ‘Who want’s a piece of me?”

Was she high?
