    A Test of Wills with the Nightmare Incarnate (Job/Azurius)

    Post by lavenderflower77 on 22nd March 2016, 12:12 am

    Job Form:
    Job: Nightmare Incarnate: The Beginning
    Rank: C-Rank
    Player Requirements: Maximum number of players is ten and the minimum is 2 D ranks. 10 posts per player minimum unless soloing(due to being higher than D rank) then 20 posts. 150 words per post.
    Job Requirements: At least 2 D rank mages or the equivalent of. Find out what happened to the rune knights and escape while you are still sane.
    Job Location: Spooky Forest

    Job Description: One day you receive a large box from the mailman. After inspecting it, you see that it doesn't say anywhere what's inside or why it's been sent to you. All that is written on the box is your name as the recipient and the initials "SM".
    Upon opening the box you discover that it's contents are a hardcover book, which upon closer inspection proves to be a person called Samuel Martin's personal diary, and a voice recorder lacrima, both covered in blood stains. Did that man send you this package? Despite the bad feeling you have, you open the book and skim through the entries.
    Information:
    "12 February, Day 647.
    Today was a fun day. Me and Mary went on a picnic near the forest and spent the whole day talking about meaningless things. It really was a blissful experience and since she didn't have any problems today we were able to forget about reality, even if for just a day."

    "19 February, Day 654.
    It happened again. Mary collapsed again today and started mumbling about magical gates and how everything is going to be a nightmare. This is happening more and more often and I am getting really concerned now. No doctor knows what's wrong with her..."

    "25 February, Day 660.
    This is really getting out-of-hand! With each passing day Mary becomes more and more delirious. I don't know what to do any more. I've contacted every doctor and every mage I could find, but no one knows what's wrong with her. There has to be someone that can help..."

    "1 March, Day 664.
    This is my last hope. I contacted an exorcist who is said to be able to cure cases like Mary's. He's going to come tomorrow night. Maybe the end of this nightmare would finally come."

    "2 March, Day 665.
    It's a little before midnight now. The priest is going to come any minute and put Mary's troubled mind to peace once again."

    "3 March, Day 666.
    I... don't believe it. I remember last night... the purification ceremony... then something happened and I was sent flying, and Mary ran away towards the Spooky Forest. When I came to, the priest was lying on the ground with his heart gourged out. What on Earth happened last night? There's no time to waste, I know she's somewhere in the forest so I have to find her. I'll contact a couple friends from the Rune Knights and we'll set off to search for her. Please be okay, my love..."

    From that point onward all pages are ripped from the book. After putting the diary down, you activate the recorder lacrima.

    "Date- 4 March. Time- 1:43 PM.
    This is Lieutenant Jacob Lars, recording an audio log to document the investigation and search. I am assigned due to my expertise in the field of demonology. It seems that a woman has been possessed by an unknown type of entity, presumably a type of demon, and has escaped in the Spooky Forest. We are currently within the said forest ourselves, having a local guide us through. For some reason when we entered it a thick, almost unnatural, fog descended upon us but we were capable of navigating through the dense vegetation regardless. Currently we are standing in a forest clearing about 2 klicks north of the entrance. So far there's no sight of of neither hostiles nor the woman. It's unnaturally quiet. A bad omen."

    "Date- 4 March. Time- 2:30 PM.
    This is Lieutenant Jacob Lars documenting the investigation and search for the possessed woman in the Spooky Forest. This is log number two. It's been nearly an hour since the previous log and we've spent the time delving further north into the forest. It's crazy here. Everywhere you look there are huge trees and if you look up there is nothing but branches and leaves. The vegetation on the higher levels of the forest is incredibly dense, so there barely is any light down on ground level. It almost feels like we're alone in another world with no way out, and that damn fog isn't helping either. All this is taking it's toll on the minds of the others.
    We're nearing another clearing. I guess we'll rest there for a while."

    "Date- 4 March. Time- 2:45 PM.
    This is Lieutenant Jacob Lars documenting the investigation. This is audiolog number three. Things are not looking good. The others are getting seriously paranoid and I can't really blame them. This place plays with your mind in a very freaky way. A few minutes ago we continued moving deeper into the forest, following our course north. The guys are really getting worried now. They say that every now and then they see someone's silhouette in the distance, just beyond the fog, watching them. Observing their every move. I have yet to confirm the existence of this shadow, but if it is there then it might be the woman we were sent to find. Next time the silhouette makes an appearance we'll go after it."

    "Date- 4 March. Time- 666:666 PM.
    *The sound of someone's ragged breath mixed with their crazed running could be heard for several minutes. After that the barely audible thud, as if someone being hit against a tree, interrupts the running*
    This is Leu*static*nt Jacob *pant* Lars. We *static*eed help! We...we got sep*static*ed and the *static* took us out *pant* one by one. It's b*static*n watching us all along! Tor*static*ring us while studying it's *pant* prey. It's close, *static* the only one left *static* coming f*static* me. *static* *static* *static* the time *static* thre *static* ourty-five. (after that point the static becomes too great and you can't understand anything)
    Having listened to the lacrima, it's as if more questions have emerged than been answered. Who sent you these items? How do they know your name? What happened to the Rune Knights? What did they find in that forest?
    It seems that you have no choice but to go there and find out yourself.

    Enemies:
    Weak: Disturbing sounds- Are those footsteps? A demented laughter somewhere in the distance? A person's dying screams? Is that a whisper you can hear, carried in the wind? This place is really freaky...
    (Causes paranoia or similar effects, depending on your character. Strong-willed characters or people with a great ability to maintain their calmness can resist this to a great extent, though not completely. Having multiple weak enemy dices means that these sounds "stack", and so their effect becomes greater and perhaps even capable of breaking even the toughest of people. Duration is 3 posts.)

    Normal: Poltergeists- Trees falling down, rocks suddenly shooting towards you, having your body strongly pushed away without any explanation. These anomalies can deal some serious damage or scare the living daylights out of you. They might even separate you from your allies. Be on guard. (Single poltergeist per normal monster encounter.)

    Strong: The unknown figure- You can feel it, can't you? Just beyond the mist, it's hollow eyes staring right into your soul, sending ice-cold chills down your spine. No matter where you look it's there. Always watching, always moving. And no matter what you do, it's always just beyond the mist.
    (Greatly frightens you, triggering your fight or flight mechanism. Whether you choose to attack or run away and hide depends on your character's personality. If this occurs in the early stages of the mission, before you've encountered the other anomalies much it will not have that great an effect. Encountering this in the later stages, however, will trigger your fight or flight mechanism, guaranteed.
    Duration is 4 posts, extended depending on number of strong monster encounter dices rolled.)

    Boss: Fear impersonated- Your time is up. The chase is over and now you must die. And it is coming to do just that. The unknown figure that had been stalking you until then finally appears before you, for better or worse. It's a humanoid about 2,5 metres tall, clad in black, but that's all you can make out of the figure.
    It's attacks are unnaturally fast, it's reach long and it seems that it can attack you with it's tentacles, cutting you with them and letting you bleed. (This is a B-rank monster. Also please note that defeating it means that it does not die. Instead it escapes back into the mist, which gets raised soon after, and leaves behind several torn pages).

    Reward: 1,000 jewels. If the boss has appeared and was defeated, the extra reward is part of the ripped pages from the diary received in the beginning of the mission. Those pages grant access to the next Nightmare Incarnate mission.

    Woot. Yuzuki was back in the so-called "Spooky" forest again. Honestly, the semi-fey couldn't see what was so spooky about it. Why humans thought death and fog was scary, she thought she'd never know. In her opinion, death was just a natural cycle of the world, something one couldn't avoid, but could run from until it really came after you. And fog, well, really, fog was just stratus clouds come too close to the ground.

    With a lazy yawn, Yuzuki stuck the paper in her tunic picket, a small sfirk on her face. Yup, she got this. She would do excellent on a job that tested fear. After all, though she was a coward, she was only that among enemies she knew she couldn't defeat. With something like this, though... Unless the monster was really scary, there seemed only to be one. She should be fine. However, the form noted that another mage would be coming along as well. As reluctant as Yuzuki was, she had accepted it anyways. She leaned back in a tree, trying to balance Katsuki on her fingertip for as long as possible.

    hen he took up the task, Azure personally asked to keep his name on the form ambiguous, as well as wait till he had partner for it. He didn' have a problem with fighting a demon, and wasn't afraid of anything a forest had to offer, sure as hell not afraid of demons, but he preferred the company of others over working along. Flying above, he had seen a rather recent face that he'd come across before. "Sybil" he said, quickly being teleported directly next to Yuzuki where he took the slip of paper from her pocket yet again. "Been a while since I tangled with demons... can't say the last time was that bad considering as I got a free cake out of it. So, Yuzu-chan... I guess you're my partner for this one since you got a copy of the job." Azurius said with a smile, dropping his hand on her head mid sentence and ruffling her hair a bit. "Also, last time you said something about a test tube... been wantin' to know what that was about. I know I could just get the answer myself, but I din't exactly like using my archive to tear open someone's life, kind of an invasion of privacy a know?" he said with his hand removed from her head, sounding concerned for her.

    She had been having such a nice day, too... That was the thought that trickled through Yuzuki'smind as she heard the voice. She knew now that the mage was a part of the legal guild Lamia Scale, so he probably didn't have anything to do with those cults and labs. Still, one could never be too sure. When a random street beggar she had been friends with had betrayed her to a laboratory? Anybody could, then. So, of course it was with a grouchy, hostile look that the semi-fey spun the spear around and directed it in Azurius' direction.still facing opposite him, she said, "Are you for real? Yuzu-chan? Lemme guess, you just want me to bow down and go all 'Onii-san' atcha, hm?"

    She flipped down on the branch, dangling and staring at upside down. "If we're partners, guess it's just my luck. Big whoop. And I'm not askin' you 'bout your little secrets, so why should you ask me?" she snapped irritably, though she looked somewhat comical in her position. A sly sort of feeling came over the trickster, and Yuzuki put on as truthful a face as she could muster, saying, "I was forced to sort test tubes for hours at the factory I used to work in, 'kay? I was working off a debt my family had." It was a complete lie, and Yuzuki wondered if the weird man would believe it. With a scowl, she flipped off the branch, munching on an apple she had pulled from her pocket. "C'mon, are we gonna go or not?"

    zurius was well versed in sarcasm and nasty attitudes of all kinds, but he enjoyed messing with other people and decided to answer as though he didn't detect it. "To be honest, I'd imagine someone as young as you started out with mister, or even Azure if ya were a more outgoing person, but I'm perfectly fine if you wanna skip to Onii-san." he smiled while silently laughing inside. He listened to her horse shit about being forced to separate test tubes, but decided not to call her out on it. She then stormed off, giving Azurius enough time to let out a sigh.

    Azurius quickened his pace, catching up to her in only a good three or four seconds as she hadn't got far. "Look Yuzuki..." Azurius said while walking backwards, both arms raised above and behind his head, fingers clasped together to keep steady. "... I'm not someone you can bull shit. I've spent over a million years doing more dirty work than you can fathom, all in the name o-" Azurius stopped there, having realized he was about to reveal his business to her. "Never mind, you don't got no interest in hearin' that so I'll cut to the chase. I ain't some lowly asshole lookin' to do whatever those people did with their testubes and you, and I ain't got no interest in using you for some nefarious plot." he said with a more determined tone. Azurius held out one hand, materializing a sphere made entirely of gold in the middle that was just as big as his hand. "I don't have any reasons to be some twat who turns on you. You ain't got nothin' I need, and if I need somethin' I can just make gold and buy it." he said before dropping the orb and letting it slam on the floor. "I wanna know who made you so bitter towards others. Let me know and I'll put a fuckin' bullet in them." he said with a very truthful voice.

    Yuzuki's eyebrow twitched a little, thinking the man couldn't be this ignorant about attitudes, being this old by now already. With a small smirk, she said, "Guess I'll call you Oji-san, then!" The semi-fey smiled at her little insult. Calling the this weirdo "old man" was perfectly suiting. Then, the guy started going off about doing all types of dirty work and stuff, etc, etc, ladeedadee da. The only point where Yuzuki's attention had been caught was with his abrupt cutoff, leading the semi-fey to understand that this guy had his own secrets to keep as well. Then, he tried to explain his innocence, forming a gold sphere with magic to show he didn't need money. Yuzuki picked up the sphere, bit into it to ensure it was real, then tossed it back with a shrug.

    Even if she wanted it, she couldn't very well use it. The currency wasn't correct, and carrying a lump of gold to some trading center would raise suspicion. It was of no use to her, and to be quite honest, she liked the thrill of stealing. He then proclaimed his wanting to take revenge on to whoever had wronged her, causing Yuzuki to nearly burst into laughter at how simply adorable that sounded. How weird could this guy get? "Haha, hilarious. It would take you a lifetime to track down and kill just half of them," she said with an amused smirk. The forest was growing darker and darker, but Yuzuki didn't mind.

    zurius laughed a hardy, healthy laugh at the younger one's retort about calling him old man. "That's a pretty good one kid." he said while calming himself. "If yo're gonna call me that i'm addressing you as nee-chan then!" he replied, naturally joking about it. Though he did grimace as she used the term lifetime so loosely, his golden eyes shifting to hers. "Don't confuse my species, with yours or a human's Yuzu-chan. For my kind, there is not end to life." he said ominously, his very tone implying he knew what he was talking about. "I see you're both having fun..." a feminine voice called from behind Azurius. It was his companion, or servant, or body guard, or whatever a person would wanna call her. "Suriel, I believe my orders were for you to stay out of sight until you were needed. It's hardly a good tactic to launch a surprise attack then the surprise is already in plain view." Azurius stated. He was displeased that she popped up without warning, but not far too angry about it.

    Yuzuki scowled, frowning at his own sort of retort. She had the feeling that he was older than her, so addressing her by nee-chan was just...weird. This was quickly confirmed by the man's next comment about his species' endless life. She shrugged amiably, not really impacted by the comment at all. She'd met a few immortals before, but most had wanted to be left alone. "Okie dokie then, whatever you say. 'S long as ya don't give me any of that all-mighty and powerful talk some of your type do," she grumbled.

    "I see you're both having fun..."
    a voice sounded from behind their backs, causing the semi-fey to immediately fall into a fighting stance, something her body was obviously accustomed to doing. However, as Azurius seemed to view her as a friend, Yuzuki turned back to the front. She wouldn't let her guard down, though. Anyone could be an enemy. Anyone could become the enemy with a few wrong words. Nobody was to be trusted. She quickly repeated her little survival mantra in her head a few times as they continued into the forest. The darkness seemed to grow oppressing, and Yuzuki's senses were all at their sharpest.

    zurius had noticed before that Yuzuki's comment wasn't snarky, or angry sounding. It was somewhat relaxed compared to her other ones, though he doubted that was the end of it. "Yuzu, this is Suriel, she's another one of my kind, older than I am by a longshot. As for being all powerful, none of us are. We're immune to aging, and while harder to kill than most beings it's still very much possible. Though I prefer it like that... if we were gods then that wold make fights boring. You could ju-" Azurius paused as he sensed something unholy coming towards them. He grabbed Yuzuki's arm, moving in front her and forcing her to move aside. Just as he did so, several dark tendrils shot through his body, forcing him forward and lifting him off the ground. The angle of the attack was that if Azurius didn't move in front her, Yuzuki would have been on the receiving end of that. Blood flew from Azure's mouth just before another set of tendrils shot through his heart and proceeded to swing him about, smashing him through the trees and then slamming his corpse on the ground. He bounced a couple times, sliding to a stop in front Suriel.

    Suriel quickly moved and grabbed Azure, throwing his body to lean against a tree with her back to Yuzuki. "I get ya don't trust me, but we can't see where that asshole is. Trust in the fact that I don't want to end up like my master, so I won't be able to turn by back to stab you in yours." she said bluntly, while it sounded bad, it was true.

    Yuzuki scowled as the man yammered on and on about random stuff again, though she kept those bits of information in her mind. She may not like the man, but she was smart enough to listen and remember the things he said. Who knew? Something he said could reveal a weakness. Suddenly, Yuzuki's senses caught a whiff of something that the moonlight within her rebelled against strongly. In a flash, the spear was out. And in a flash, that weird old guy shot in front of her, taking the blows for himself. With an annoyed sigh, Yuzuki said, "Aren't you an idiot, huh? Well, I guess it's now been proven you're a masochist, so I'll letcha do what you want."

    Then, barely listening to Suriel's comment, Yuzuki carefully listened for any signs of what that monster was. A tree branch creaked, causing her to jump a bit, but otherwise nothing. Carefully, the semi-fey placed a hand on a tree, carefully reaching out to its mind. After asking it if it knew what the creature was, there was a long, odd pause. Organisms were usually quite eager to talk to Yuzuki, so she had no idea what was going on, then, an obviously outside voice boomed in her head. "Get out of here if you know what's good for you. You saw your friend and what happened to him. This is MY forest." The semi-fey stumbled back, her face in shock. What had happened here?

    I
    t was from friendly to rude with this kid, first she was mean, then she was better, and right back to mean again. A set of tendrils shot out, a massive shield with a solid white marble center and a golden border would appear. Behind it was Azure who had several bleeding holes beginning to heal at incredible speed. The tendrils impacted the shield, causing it to glow golden as the evil being hit it. It was the holy aspect of Azurius's magic that rejected the unholy aspect of the demon. While the shield itself held no magic abilities, it was crafted of magic and held the properties of all magic Azurius used. "Tell me... why is it that you shield her?" the voice of the being called out. "Because I protect my friends." Azurius answered with a firm, true voice. "I'd like to doubt she wants to be your friend..." Suriel commented, looking around for the bastard. "I don't care if she calls me her friend or not, I call her mine. That alone's enough reason for me to put my life on the line for her!" he exclaimed, as though making a declaration to the world.

    Wow, this guy sure was sappy. As Azurius raised the shield, in a protective movement, Yuzuki could barely resist gagging at how fake and stupid this was. What was wrong with the guy? I mean, seriously the only logical explanation for his actions was that he was a serious masochist. The guy made her sick, yet made her want to roll on the ground in laughter at the same time. Did fairy tale heroes exist in real life? This guy was obviously trying to become one. With a swish of her spear, silver chains spun around her, a lethal blade on the end. With barely a care for her allies, she swiped her weapon through the swarm of tentacles, lopping many off. As usual, her fighting looked beautiful, in a sick sort of way. Her movements were agile, taking off tentacle after tentacle. With twenty-some years of experience, the semi-fey defended herself well. The main thing driving her on was the tree's situation. How could something do such a thing as horrible as taking over a tree's mind? The tallest, oldest, most serene thing of the forest, she couldn't forgive whatever hurt a thing such as it.

    S
    eeing as Yuzuki was able to keep the tendrils off her for now, Azurius looked at Suriel and issued a set if commands using their telepathic bond. Suriel returned the look and nodded, immediately firing off a set of golden light orbs that shot straight through a set of tendrils. "Holy Destroyer!" Azurius shouted, calling forth a et of gold and white marble armour. The shield he used had disappeared and was replaced by a pair of golden spears, each with white marble accents. It was rare to see anyone wield spears as a dual wielded weapon, but those who dared to do it in the heat of combat were either too proud to admit their lack of skill, or were truly proficient with the weapons to the point where they didn't care to look like an idiot. More orbs were fired, Suriel materializing them mid air and launching them in the direction her and Azurius felt the unholy presence originating from. Azurius had charged forwards, using the spears to rapidly slice open anything that came in his way. Meanwhile, a key with a middle finger at the end was left on the ground. It began glowing, and the Celestial Spirit "Vince, The Guy" had entered the battle with all the swag that came with being a beast. The claws on his hands slashed open a set of tendrils and he narrowly dodged Yuzuki's spear by jumping forwards and slashing more tendrils. 'Orders were keep 'er safe... right on boss man, if she don't run me through first.' he thought while slashing more black tentacles.

    Glancing behind her to spot Azurius, Yuzuki raised an eyebrow at the sight she saw. Two spears? Wasn't that a bit much? Being a spear wielder herself, Yuzuki knew very well how difficult using two at once could be. Andhow annoying it was, since they would constantly get tangled up and clang against everything. Not to mention, they didn't flow with your body as well, functioning as something completely separate from you instead of moving as one with you. That was what Yuzuki loved about Katsuki, how she could fluidly switch from chains to spear, fighting like she was dancing with moonlight itself.

    Still, she cast the thought off after a moment, and resumed fighting with her full attention. As a mischievous thought entered her mind, the semi-fey grinned crookedly, and suddenly sprang into the midst of a large group of tentacles. She grabbed many of the ends, and moved around to attract to other tentacles to certain positions. Then, she would leap around trees, occasionally releasing a tentacle, her sharp senses calculating exactly where. When she was finished, a complicated network of tentacles were tangled very thoroughly in the trees and tied in dead knits around each other. The trickster mage then couldn't help but weave a ribbon out of moonlight, then wrap it all up nicely. With a mocking bow at Vince, who had just entered the scene, the semi-fey twirled Katsuki into battle on their side of the clearing.

    A
    zurius had found the source of the disturbance among a mass of tentacles. The entity shot several tendrils out at him, immediately he replied by swinging one of the spears while bracing it against his arm to keep it stiff. The tendrils erupted into shadows as they were slashed off and Azurius had continued his momentum by spinning on a heel, and slamming the tip of a spear into the ground, vaulting himself over another set of tentacles. Azure's movements implied he was quite comfortable with the two weapons, that he'd practiced and perfected his technique over an insurmountable amount of time. A set of tendrils came out for Azure and he spun one of the spears in the proper hand while also making a sweeping motion with the other pear just close enough to not touch the spinning one. The technique acted with one spear being a shield, the other being a sword without either being what it was used for. The reason Azure had this level of skill was that his preferred melee weapon for the million or so years he was an angel was a spear, and for most of that time he'd practiced using two of them at once.

    Yuzuki glanced over at Azurius, realizing that he had discovered what seemed to be the source of the tentacles. She somersaulted outoof reach of a group of tentacles, then swung down some ways away from Azurius, her spear shifting into nunchuck form after she cracked it against her back. She spun the chains around her, slicing off several tentacles, moving closer to the source with Azurius. She smacked aside a few more tentacles, then spun out of the reach of several beforediving towards the center. She was forced back by a torrent of the stuff again, and scowled in anger. She quickly jumped back up, and worked at the mass of darkness with a renewed frenzy, nearly reaching the center several times. However, Katsuki never could quite hit home, and Yuzuki was forced to briefly retreat and rest. She soon stood up again, however, and with a swing of Katsuki, allowed moonlit threads to envelope her, allowing her to attack with greater strength and power.

    V
    ince followed Yuzuki's lead and jumped, pressing a foot on one of the tentacles as it came and forced himself into the air. He pressed his feet to an overhanging tree branch and shot himself forwards, landing near the woman, but not so close he would become an obstacle. His blades were running rampant on the tendrils, slashing them as fast as they came and wondering when Azurius was going to finally get serious. A wave of tentacles sent Vince back, evidently performing the same actions to Yuzuki who seemed to recover fast enough. They both got up fairly quickly, considering as they were both directly impacted by those damn wriggly things. He dusted himself off, a rather unhappy expression came about him as his shades broke and fell off. The pitch black eye beneath them darted to Yuzuki, "Looks like you're doing fine. Wonder when that asshole will stop holding back so much..." his voice was gruff, filled with annoyance. He let out a sigh, feeling that his personal magic power was getting low. "I'll clear ya a path, when that thing falls... do me a favor and smack Azure for me." his final words to Yuzuki before turning to the tentacles and giving a wink. A massive blast of magic power shot out and tore a hole that went all the way to the nasty bastard, but stopped just shy of hitting it directly. It was at this moment that Vince had faded from the world and returned to the Celestial one.

    Yuzuki noticed out of the corner of her eye as Vince joined her, his own blades slashing at the tentacles, but facing the same problems she did. He kept up well, the both of them hacking and slicing away at the black stuff. However, soon the celestial spirit seemed to lose power faster than she did, probably due to him being out of his own world. As he tossed a comment towards her, she grinned toothily, a mean spark in her eye. "'Cause he's such a masochist, ya know? He's probably gonna wanna get hit again," she smirked. Yup, typical Yuzuki manners right there. He told her he would clear a path, so Yuzuki moved back a bit, still glowing with moonlight. "Yup, yup," she responded, grinning before starting to move forward again. As he blasted his way through and faded out of Earthland, Yuzuki charged forward, leaping up high into the air, then somersaulting down towards the black up that was its source. There were relatively few tentacles in the area now, but still enough for her to have to fight her way over, spear spinning around and around. As a tentacle grabbed her arm, she quickly reached around to lop it off, then surged forward again, striking at the source.

    S
    uriel had vanished from Azure's side, appearing at Yuzuki's back as she dealt with the main body of the monster. Several tentacles flying at her back, Suriel held her hand up, an opened book in the other and a large hemisphere appeared before her that stopped the tendrils from moving further. The shield had ripples, like those on a lake, as the tentacles tried getting past it, but soon, a blast of holy energy shot out scorching all the tendrils and burning them away. "Azure!" she shouted. It was then that Azurius appeared next to her out of thin air and the shield was brought down. "Cover me." she said and turned her head to the book, a white and red energy beginning to flow around her. Azurius knew this spell, it was one that would hurt him when it was over, and disable his magic but he didn't particularly mind that. Azure was used to not using magic, so the effects of being cut off were fair and few, annoying at the worst. More tentacles filled in trying to surround the group. Azurius shifted towards the ones closest to him, spinning one spear to deflect them, then spinning himself and slashing the tendrils with the other spear. A large tentacle emerged from the darkness that Azurius jumped and pressed his feet on, allowing it to send him to the other side of the clearing where he used his dual spears to annihilate the ones there. He then ran back to the front and gave a few quick slashes to be rid of the tentacles coming from that direction. A white and red orb shot into the air from Suriel's book, creating a massive magic circle in the sky that emitted a light so bright it blasted through the canopy and shone down on the forest floor below. It revealed the tentacle monster to be human sized, only a few inches taller than Suriel, but shorter than Azurius. "Yuzu, finish it! We'll cover your back!" Azure shouted. The magic circle would cause the demon to move slower, and deal less damage than normal. The other magic circle, the white one, would cause Yuzuki's magic to cost 75% less power, as well as apply a mass of other boosts.

    OOC: Sorry for the bad posts))

    Yuzuki kept slicing away the tentacles before her, but soon her senses picked up on Suriel and Azurius' presences fighting. In her peripheral vision, she noticed Suriel open a book, preparing to cast a spell. It seemed to be a rather large one, judging from the size oh the magic seal created, and Yuzuki tensed, ready to jump out of the way in case it had any possibility of impacting her negatively. A shield was in the celestial spirit's other hand, blocking off tentacles. As red and white flowed over the book, Yuzuki began to sense the magic fading from the demon, and energy coursing through her.

    So it was a support spell of some type, huh? Yuzuki tensed off her current group of tentacles, making her way over to see what they might need help with. As the orb shot into the sky, casting light on the figure, the semi-fey barely heard the mage's words before she leapt into the air, invisible wings that weren't quite all there carrying her much higher than humanly possible. Then, she dove down, relishing the feeling of wind against her face, Katsuki spinning and keeping the tentacles away. She pulled on the stores of moonfire within her, threads spiraling from under her sleeve. They formed a glimmering strip of the silvery fire, and, lingering in the air for just a moment, it then slashed downwards, splitting the figure below right down the middle.

    The tentacles' movement died down, Yuzuki landed again, a toothy grin on her face. "Look what I got!" She dangled a scrap of paper in front of her, seeming to have come from that same journal. "I feel like it's a clue. Well, this job's done anyways, so I'll just give this to you, and be on my way Oji-san~!" she chirped, a slightly mean spark in her eyes as she deposited the paper in Azurius' arms and disappeared into the trees.

    T
    he demon fell behind Azurius and Suriel, the light filtering straight through the dense overgrowth that was the forest canopy to reveal the tendrils shriveling. "This isn't over..." Suriel said to Azurius as Yuzuki began leaping off into the distance. Azurius let out a sigh "Yeah... Demons don't die that easily... we both know he'll be back." his voice was rather unhappy with the result, the fact that a holy weapon wasn't used for the final strike meant that there was no chance of it being officially dead. But Azurius knew that Yuzuki wasn't willing to be so helpful as to watch his back while he dealt the final hit, so the situation couldn't be helped. "So whadda we do now?" Azurius turned to looked at Suriel saying "We go home. I'll toss the kid her pay next time I see her... seems we run into each other a lot."
