A-choo!

A fine layer of powder rose into the air as the white haired Archer sneezed three times in a row. Her face flushed, the vine tightening around her ankles in warning. "E-excuse me." An apology given in quiet, embarrassed tones to the vines restricting her movement-- and to those she might have disturbed with the sound.

...did you really just fuckin' apologize to the vines of all things?

Disbelief in that familiar voice.

I hate you all. It might have been a growl, or a stifled groan.

You don't even know us all that well yet, dear. Well, them, anyway. Cheerful and chipper, though she only solidified the suspicion that the Twin Blade did, in fact, know the Blademistress.

"GiGan Zot!" She called out, the earthen spires exploding from below at her call.

If he was so wary, the battle must be close to drawing to a close. Brandy gold eyes slid away from the battle to sneak a glance at Xenobia to make some attempt at gauging her reaction the battle at hand.

The earth spell did its damage, heaping more on to the boss of this swiftly-ending fight. There was so little left to do.

Xenobia, Sekai saw, was lounged as if in complete relaxation. However, her fingers played along her spear, back and forth, as if in anticipation.

(When the Willowman removed all buffs and debuffs, or even the possibility of those things, it annoyed the Twin Blade, but not so much that it couldn't be solved with a little mayhem. Others began to lash out at the boss, and then...faster than you could say "I AM GROOT.", both Canti and Shadow were on the bastard. Shadow pounced and attempted to break the Willowman's head off, or at least break his neck, and the winged Twin Blade followed up with Terror Cyclone.)

More damage!

Next up: Sheena

Sheena was actually a little disappointed with the boss's move set. It was unfortunate; with all the buffs, she was looking forward to a little rampant destruction. Still, she was powerful enough, she could deal a ton of damage even without buffs. Which is exactly what she did. With a running start, she drove a ferocious punch straight into the wooden gut of the wooden man. He took it, as was all he could do, with more cracks radiating out from his already shattered body.

This time, however, it proved to be too much. When Sheena retreated, he collapsed, the dome forming and the crystals appearing as they had so many times before. The difference was, this time there were only two remaining. One sealed Nighthand, and one sealed Nall, both powerhouses of the team. There was no indication which was which, and they could only destroy one. Which would they free?

Next up: Maoh

When the crystals came back up, Maoh was given the first chance to start working at breaking one of them. There were two, with no discernable way to tell which person they'd free or anything at all, so it was as good as a coin flip to decide between them. Taking one last look between the pair of them, Maoh ran forward and flared up with Vakz energy before unleashing his torrent of attacks upon both crystals using his Fireburst Skill. His bias, if any, was on the left crystal; but he figured if he could break both to speed things along, why not? He couldn't measure up to how hard Sheena was hitting, but it was bound to amount to something.

As usual, one crystal absorbed all of the damage, shattered with relatively little effort while the other immediately disappeared. In the party lineup, the vines binding one of their powerhouse members withered and died.

Unfortunately perhaps for the timing of the remainder of the battle, it was Nighthand who was freed. Nall may have been able to use some skill to accelerate the party, but then, Nighthand was fearsome in his own right. He itched to attack, and while he might not be able to match the raw power of Sheena, he could certainly give it a close second shot.

(Good news, everyone! After his turn, Sheena walloped the Willowman hard enough to make the last crystals appear, and then Maoh crushed one of them to release Nighthand! Not...Canti's first choice, but he was still good. Then, after that, it was...huh?! Behold, the confusion of Canti-sama as it was his turn again!)

Canti: But...we're not even sped up anymore.

Shadow: What if we're just that good?

Canti: So good that we beat everyone else flatfooted?

Shadow: Aren't you the strongest Twin Blade?

Canti: Well, yeah...

Shadow: And you have those wings?

Canti: Okay, you got me there.

Shadow: How do you want to...?

Canti: Eh heh heh...

Shadow: Oh no...

(And with a cry of "SHADOW-DOKEN!!", the Bogie was flung to ram into the Willowman, full force, before Canti attacked with Terror Cyclone again.)

Canti was fast, that was sure. Only a few could beat him in speed without hack or buff shenanigans, and in this Xenobia-controlled system, those shenanigans were limited. So it was, that he got the first hit on the presumably final phase of the boss.

Taking in a deep breath while the energy from the loud crack of the scroll tingled her skin. It helped a lot but she needed more to assure victory. Once again the team continued with everything they had. Each loud crack against the enemy feeding her next attack. For a brief moment she wondered if how she felt was like what an addict would feel...like she couldn't get enough. But for the Twin Blade it wasn't a high she was feeling but rather a void. Ever watching and pulling in what sound she could harvest, Talal's eyes grew when the crystals appeared once more knowing she wasn't ready. Canti and Shadow were ready and they were able to free Nighthand. Which left one more crystal.

The Willowman looked weak and she wondered if it was enough but if anything, this fight had showed her what she needed to break a crustal and she wasn't there yet. Instead, Talal took out the second and last of her Lightning Rod scrolls and let it rip right at the location of humming that she had continued to concentrate on. Hopefully, it would at minimum make it reappear and give her build up the boost she needed to attack on her next turn. Of course, she could hope for the world and wait in anticipation of perhaps another shattered crystal now that it was alone and presumably would attract the whole force of the scroll like a magnet.

The dark haired woman stood there, her one hand still moving to reign in the sound while the rest of her watched and hoped.

Talal's lightning spell fed into her sonic collection, and it hurt the Willowman as an indirect hit, but it had no effect on the crystal aside from making it hum a little louder -- hard to even hear over the sound of the spell itself.

No buffs, no debuffs; the decision on how to act was quite clear, limiting their arsenal to offense and healing. Baron did a quick check, seeing that everyone's health was in good condition, and decided that he would be taking the former option. With the Willowman weakened and most of their members free, their remaining path was obvious; they had to take him down and shatter the last crystal as quickly as possible. He had just enough SP left for one more assault before he'd have to take the time to regenerate it, but hopefully, this would be his last major turn in the battle. His Enja remained out as he charged at full speed, closing the distance to the Willowman in no time. Higure, responding to his summons, was at his side as the two attacked.

The wolf grabbed at the Willowman's leg, teeth tearing into it as he pulled, trying to take the opponent off-balance. Baron followed up with that, literally tackling the Willowman and attempting to knock it down. If it succeeded, the next attack would be a Flaming Vortex performed vertically, aimed right for the monster's neck; with luck, the flame-laden blades would shear right through, though Baron doubted it would be so easy. And even if his attack didn't knock the Willowman down, the same attack would go through, just aiming at the body for overall damage rather than exposed weak point. Their twin assault done, Baron and Higure would quickly retreat back to their place in line.

The Willowman reacted as a statue to their attacks, immobile as per the limits on the turn-based battle, immovable as per Xenobia's control over everything in her domain. Still, he could do nothing but take attacks, whatever form they took.

With Nighthand freed, there was a point approaching that Takua wasn't terribly happy about. A single crystal left meant that there was an obvious evolution to the boss fight coming up. Soon, the Willowman wouldn't be able to let loose his healing gas, wouldn't have anything to hide behind...or, theoretically, anything to devote his power to other than attacking them. That moment would be the most dangerous, but without seeing any damage numbers, it was hard to determine exactly when the Willowman would go down. Otherwise, it'd be best to coordinate it just after it had had a turn...but it was almost best to do it when they were all full. Otherwise, there was no telling if their enemy would just...go again. Only three members of the group had attacked since the Willowman had last gone down. He wouldn't go down for a while...but before Takua's next turn, most likely.

In the end, despite theorizing, there were only a few things to do. The first was to compose a short flashmail.

Quote:
To: Freedom Fighters
From: Takua
Subject: Boss End

Phase 3 once the last crystal breaks? Prepare for healing.


With that done, it should have been a simple matter to attack again.

But the Wavemaster was actually out of SP, and had to take a small break from the beatdown to make sure that he could still heal when the time came. A swift Artisan soul, and he was back in business. Vesica, however, had no such limitations, and another ice blast would put more pain on.

Takua was perhaps wise to regain his resources in preparation for another phase, though where might the boss go from here? Time would tell.

Next up: Demorian

Demorian's contribution to the fight thus far had been damage control, heaping on damage by way of controlling the fight. Chunking the HP of the boss was always useful, and with no buffs to be seen, it was really all there was left. For this turn, he opted to see if multiple hits were better than a single blow, pulling out his highest form of Rue Revolver, the half-dozen slashes ripping across the stationary wooden target. It seemed perhaps to do more damage overall, though it was hard to tell either way.

One crystal left... and given that the Willowman's turn was fast approaching, the snowy haired Archer could only agree with Takua's idea and swallowed hard. The retaliation was going to be devastating in some degree or another, but what could she do when she only had one move to make per round? Defense...? Might be a good plan to defend, negate some of the damage coming their way and be ready to refresh the party once her turn came back around. But, there might be more use for the damage she could potentially utilize...

Oi. Kira had the epitome of annoyance laced within a single word, tapping her foot impatiently against the depths of her mind. You have three of us here, y'know. We might be able to do something, even if it's just eat extra damage and offer ourselves up as a distraction.

Her brow furrowed, uneasy at the idea of just... sacrificing them like that. Like pawns that didn't matter.

Little one, I swear to fuck, you're-- Kira began.

The newcomer snorted. What the fuck're you people even doing? You, the waify bitch, you're able to control us like slaves. Fuckin' make use of us or don't. Quit being a pussy and do something useful with whatever tricks made this happen.

While I disagree with their manner of speaking, little mistress, I do believe they have a point; we are an extra blade, or two, December gave a cheerful smile as she cheekily waved one hand to the twin blades at her hip. at your command. Allow us to help, hm? We are not unfamiliar with battle, after all.

Hesitation. ...which of you...? Reluctance, because they would get attacked, and she couldn't guarantee their safety against an opponent so much stronger than herself.

Fighting broke out, until December, the pink haired woman smiling contentedly to herself as the new girl and Kira squabbled up in one anothers' faces, ready to come to blows themselves, took advantage of the situation to claim the task herself. Allow me to do the honors while these two settle their differences; you need someone with logic, after all.

Sekai's eyes flicked up to Willowman, a slight nod of her head to confirm the decision. Power gathered, swelled within her veins as the elegant scrollwork of the elaborate butterfly tattoo encompassing the back of her neck suddenly illuminated with a bright crimson and gold light, the black mark in the center of her forehead changing to a deep shade of red as the contract was drawn upon and her talent manifested.

A second figure, taller than Sekai by a significant margine, neatly side stepped away from the thick vines wound about the Archer's ankle. Her tall, graceful form shedding small reddish-gold embers with each movement as her tanned, calloused palms sought the familiar golden handles of her blades and unsheathed them from their prisons. She moved in a swirl of red, pink, and gold fabric as steel sang, and in the elegant dance of her class, proceeded to test what her own attack might do to their mutual foe. Leaf green eyes shone with pleasure and the carmine painted lips parted just a little in a flash of white teeth and a cheerful smile.

"Lovely tower, I must say."

Ahh, but it felt good to be able to stretch her limbs once again.
