    Desperate times call for... (Private/Eris)

    Post by Heavens Empress Daiki on 30th March 2016, 7:38 pm

    It was quite unusual for Ai to not be out and about from her house, and even more unusual for it to be multiple days of the such. Though, it was probably something that she had done that had caused the blonde mage to stay isolated at her house. If you had guessed that, then you'd be correct, however, it'd be the anniversary of something of that sort happening. It was around the the of the year that she had killed her younger sister, though it was a year prior. Despair was something that engulfed the mage during this time, hearing her sisters voice. She spent several days locked within her house, doing almost nothing important, such as keeping her house clean, even though she wasn't there too often. She did make sure to eat something, even if it wasn't much, and kept clean, but other than that, she mainly stayed in bed.

    However, she'd fall deeper into the despair day by day until she came to a realization, that she didn't really want to come to otherwise. She quickly moved from her bedroom to where the room she kept all of the books she had 'borrowed' from the library she had visited when doing her last batch of research. She remembered having seen some information about a ritual to summon a being that would, most likely, be able to fulfil any wish she might have.

    After grabbing the correct book, she'd change into something suitable for a trek into the woods, as her house was right on the outskirts of Magnolia, near the forest.She'd go in a straight line from her house, deeper into the forest, roughly five minutes before stopping. She'd open the book to the page that mentioned said ritual, and prepared the entire ritual. Following how the book had stated the preperations for the ritual, which, for the most part, seemed normal for a ritual used for summoning. With the exception of the incantation. only being the name of the deity spoken three times. Please let this work..." She'd whisper to herself before moving right outside of the large rune for the ritual and kneeling down and raising her hands to right below her chin, as if she would start praying.

    Eris... Eris..." She'd say, shaking ever so slightly hoping she wouldn't be lied to yet again by what she summoned. "Eris!" She said, hoping that there wasn't too long of a delay between each, as the despair continued to surround her, unable to even think of facing her family after what she had done to her younger sister.

    Eris



    Eris stood next to an altar-like lab table with blood channels to either side,  running red from the body on the display.  Its chest was torn open,  ribs spread like wings.  It's organs were exposed with a heart still beating.  Its intestines were set aside and a uterus seemed to be presented like a focus of whatever she was doing.   The woman on the table seemed to stare blankly up at a hypnotic horned skull in the ceiling,  undisturbed by what was happening.

    Blood up to her elbows Eris snipped a bit of flesh while the faint call of someone using her name was heard,  faint,  on the edge of her consciousness.   It didn't bother or disturb her.  Two more followed,  expanding the awareness to encompass more senses while she planted a small fleshy organ the size of an orange within the body and with a quick gesture of her hand sealed the would back up,  the rest of the body cavity still exposed,  while in her minds'eye a woman seemed to be praying for her.  

    She could wait,  probably.  She could feel the desperation dripping off the person.  Hope,  how quaint.  Eris reached into the air beside her and took a jar off a shelf through a little crack that appeared and uncapped it, pouring out sour green liquid as a heart fell into her hand.   Setting the jar aside she fixed the heart inside the woman on the table,  flesh reshaping like it had a mind of its own to adjust to fit the new heart as she folded the ribs back into place and with another gesture sealed the body shut in full.   Chest rising and falling now as breath filled its lungs.

    Done with her business Eris broke her body apart into a cloud of smoke she slipped through the figurative window unseen into a forest and near the woman surrounded by candles kneeling in front of a book.  She knew what book it was,  if she couldn't tell by the presentation of the ritual itself.   They were all different in their own ways.  Most involved candles,  it was fitting she supposed.   This one seemed to be more modern,  the work of a madman who drove himself insane studying ritual magic and contacting dark gods and old abominations more alien than anything really.  

    Almost all of it was garbage and was more fiction than science.  Many libraries probably had a copy,  probably stuffed with heretical novels or works of wizards deemed faulty at best.  It had gained a little more popularity lately though as some tied it to more recent superstitions.  Regarding Eris.  People were more likely to die from boredom trying to read it anyway.

    "Judging from the fact you're still living,  I'm guessing you haven't tried the ritual on page 94 yet. I wouldn't recommend it anyway, Khurlix is an asshole."  Eris said from behind the praying woman while leaning against a tree.  The tree blackened on contact and seemed to be dying out from where she was touching, contrasting against her white body.   Other plants withering in the vicinity and the light seemed dimmer than it had been.

    The stars can't shine
    without the Darkness.


    The woman stayed in the position for however much time had passed after having spoken the name for a third time, her eyes closed. She was really hoping that this would really work out how she would hope, as she couldn't dare face anyone in her family after she had killed her younger sister, even if it was just in self defense. Ai didn't think that her siblings would ever believe her should she have told them, as so much time had passed and she didn't know if they had her father's opinion of her after all the time that had passed. But after a few moments that passed after she spoke the name she had to for the third time, she'd hear someone speak behind her, turning quickly as she was a few words into speaking. She'd let her finish speaking before actually saying anything. She'd also notice that she was leaning on a tree that blackened pretty much instantly, and the rest of the plants started to wither in the vicinity as well.

    "E-Eris?" She'd say, in slight disbelief that the summoning actually worked, but now came the part where she needed to ask her one question, one that would actually make this worth it or not, but she figured she didn't have any time to actually waste before making her request, as she only read on how to summon Eris, not much of any other related information within that book. She stayed near where she was when she started calling out Eris' name, except now facing her before speaking. "Is there anyway you can bring my sister back to life?" She'd ask, her voice cracking ever so slightly. Even though it wasn't too apparent, for the time being due to the abyss of despair, she was on the brink of crying.

    She really did hope that Eris would be able to do something, but the uncertainty of her actually being able to do so still weighed on her mind. It wasn't hard to believe that she had doubts considering the demon that had taught her God Slayer magic after promising to teach her a magic to turn her body back to normal, though by now, she didn't much care. She was used to it by now.

    Eris




    Eris chuckled softly at the more innocent request,  a question.  The worry, hope, and sadness was thick with her.  She could already see her desires,  though Eris always made them voice them.  To ask.   



    "Right to the point then."  Eris slipped behind the tree in a trail of smoke in one smooth motion to appear behind the other girl again,  rising up from the ground and picking the book up along with her as she rose.  Taping the page with what little information the author had on her.  


    Swirling in the air she reappeared next to another tree,  the last tree visibly smoldering revealing the source of the blackness to be heat,  red cracks appearing in that tree showing the glow of fires within as the new tree started to blacken as the last did.  She didn't have to,  but it was mildly satisfying to her to allow these trees to burn,  and some minor display.  The casualness of this communion spiced up with some flare at least.  


    "This book certainly says I can.  But whether or not I will is entirely up to you."  She said,  closing the book with a thud before it crumbled into ash between her fingers,  her white eyes fading to reveal black sockets,  eyes replaced with marbles of flame that looked to burn away at her own flesh around them,  eyes that stared forward into Ai's own.  



    "Trying to ask a demon for aid,  you have not even laid out any circles of defense or wards.  Summoning anything else may have made you a meal.  But I am feeling productive today."  Eris saw the woman on her operating table in her minds eye.  


    "You've caught me in a good mood,  I'll cut to the point.  Offer yourself to me,  your body,  your soul.  Your loyalty, and service.  Be mine.  And your sister will be freed from death,  never to know its touch again."  She seemed to grow in stature as she spoke and hovered in the air nearer,  drawing closer until she was looming over her in her final words.  Her hand extended in front of her, palm up as though asking for her to take it.

    The stars can't shine
    without the Darkness.


    The woman, seeing her disappear behind the tree while stating something. She didn't know where she had went until she had looked around, which she was next to another tree. She'd soon state that the book said she could, but weather or not she did, is entirely up to her. She'd soon watch the woman close the book as it had soon crumbled into ash. Ai would have panicked about the book itself and listened to the woman speak again after she noticed her white eyes fading to reveal black sockets which had eyes replaced with marbles of flame.

    Ai didn't know what to really say now as she continued to watch and listen to the woman as she stated that trying to ask a demon for aid, that she had not laid out any circles of defense or wards, summoning anything else would have resulted in her being a meal for them. Apparently Eris was feeling productive, whatever that meant exactly. Stating that she caught her in a good mood, she'll cut to the point. Apparently in order for Ai's wish to be fulfilled, she would need to offer her body, soul, loyalty, and service to the woman. Should she do so, her sister would be freed from death, never to know what it felt like again. The woman seemed to grow taller and offered her hand, with the palm facing upward, as if she was asking her to take it.

    After a few moments, she would raise one of her hands up to Eris' hand. Her hand hovered above the woman's hand for another moment, as if she was hesitant, but her hand eventually made contact with the womans hand. [color:5c90=$799FC7]"I'd also like to know about my mother..." She'd say, the moment she took her hand. She was mainly curious to see what had happened to her all the years ago.

    Eris



    Eris nodded at the added request.  Information on another individual who was not dead was less direct and the contract could only bind her into making some effort to uncover the desired information herself,  using whatever resources she had at her disposal to seek it out.   

    Making contact with her hand Eris's fingers closed around her hand and lifted it up higher up to her eye level,  still low on Eris being taller and still hovering off the ground few inches.  Her hand adjusted so the hands were vertical with each other,  fingers entwined.  


    Drawing her eyes and making contact,  the two hands ignited into a blue flame.  Searing pain flooding Ai out from the hand,  flesh charring into a crisp black in an instant.  A burning echo resounding within her as blue flames burned the soul directly,  images of gruesome terrors flashing through her mind as fragments of the fundamental essence that composed her were ripped into.   For Eris,  the flames fueled her.  Energy revitalizing her and invigorating.   Memories crept into her mind,  experiences.   Eris could see the mother and sister through Ai's eyes.   She knew her name, and the names of her family.  She shared the last moments Ai could remember seeing her mother. 


    Letting the blackened hand go, the flames died and Eris's eyes became flesh again.  Her eyes looked remarkably similar to Ai's own.   Her white body and hair faded in with new colors.  She wasn't attempting to copy Ai, but having ripped from her she was filled with new vitality and looked more alive.


    "I see."  She said,  her voice different.  A middleground between their two.  "I cannot tell you anything about your mother at this time,  but over time I can lend my support in seeking her out.   As for your sister,  having seen her...   Yes. She is within reach"  A circle of runes appeared in the air between Eris and her.  It was the mark of the Pact.  The symbols were alien but seeing them alone imparted knowledge and understanding.  It informed her of what the pact would or could do for her and what she would give in turn,  and the understanding that by touching this pact it will be done.   


    A small rune inserted itself into the pattern after a moment,  offering to erase the damage Eris had just done to her.  It wasn't going to heal her,  but remake her arm whole.  Reshaping and replacing the ruined flesh.  It was optional,  filtered out from the deal by her intention when accepting the pact. 


      




    Spoiler:

    • - The Blazing Hand: 
    Lady Red is capable of touching a would-be victim and in doing so she sears their body.  It can be done to clothing or armor,  but the effect ends if they shed that item.  The hand print hurts, dealing normal rank appropriate unarmed damage at most but can be reduced to only hurt as much as an average 1st degree burn.  Either way the mark is the same, a slightly-claw-like hand print of either reddened skin (reduced damage) or melty-charred-third degree burns and scar tissue. 
    This cursed mark will remain with them until the damage is healed by holy magic,  or healed on holy ground,  but the effect itself ends after 10 posts on a PC character +1 post per rank less than her (-1 per rank greater than her). 
    What the mark does is allow her to force a Contract onto an NPC victim as though they accepted the contract, even if they would not normally do so.  The contract can only effect the victim,  but allows her to dominate them.  They become hers to command,  allowing her to sense what they sense and communicate with them at a distance as though they were contractees and she gains great insight into their past life, desires, wishes,  memories.  
    She may use Essence Rip on a Blazing Hand victim from any range (But no HP or MP is gained if the character is too far, so it can't be used to gain MP or HP at will with the excuse that there are Blazing Hand victims somewhere)
    Against PCs,  the Blazing Hand can be resisted and instead gives only some insight into their memories and what their magic can do and lets her talk to them telepathically.   
    Skin Thief can use memories gleened from use of the Blazing Hand to take the form of someone from a Blazing Hand victim's past. 

    Name: Devour Essence
    Rank
    : A
    TypeSupport
    Duration: Instant
    Cooldown: 7
    Description: Against a touched victim, Lady Red can use an empowered form of Essence Rip.  It deals A-damage, 80,  outright and cause an additional 50% damage directly to their soul.   50% of the damage dealt returns as HP to Lady Red,  and 25% of the damage dealt is drained from their MP pool and added to Lady Red's own.
    Her Skin Thief can work off of Devour Essence,  in which case she can wear their skin even if their own skin remains.   
    If this spell kills a target,  Lady Red is healed by 45% of her HP/MP and she can steal their body,  her own body incinerating to become a pile of ash and bone.  Ongoing effects on that body remain,  such as buffs and debuffs alike (Unless the debuff was her own effect).
    A stolen body's appearance lasts for 10 posts longer than a simple skin theft,  before eventually her normal appearance reforms.  She can use Skin Thief to re-take the original body's appearance by killing someone else with Essence Rip/Devour Essence as normal,  allowing her to quite effectively infiltrate someones life if she can hide the murders.
    Strengths:

    • A damaging drain effect helping sustain her in a fight, with a bonus if used as a killing blow.
    • Allows her to more effectively replace someone / disguise herself.
    Weaknesses:

    • Requires touch contact which puts her at risk.

    • Doesn't heal as much as a normal spell would unless she can kill someone with this effect.
    • Resisting the damage would simultaneously mean she recovers less from using this on them.

    Ai watched as Eris nodded, also noticing that she would bring their hands up to her eye level and adjusting them so that that they were vertical with each other with their fingers entwined. After a moment, she'd notice that their hands would soon be engulfed by a blue flame. Now long after she noticed the blue flame, a pain almost like no other was coming from her hand as the flesh on her hand quickly became charred. She did what she could to not pull her hand away from the pain, but in doing so she couldn't stifle any reactions to the pain, in which she'd scream in agony.

    As Eris had let her hand go, she'd drop it near the ground after falling her her knees with her other hand gripping her forearm, still unable to stifle her shouts of pain. She'd look at the woman as she had started to speak. She noticed that her appearance looked similar to hers and her voice now was between their individual voices. Eris would soon state she couldn't tell her anything about her mother now, but in time she'd be able to lend her support. As for Ai's younger, she was apparently within reach of the woman. As a circle of runes appeared between the two of them, she would slowly stand up, shaking due to the pain from her burnt hand.

    She didn't recognize the symbols but upon seeing them, she would understand and learn. Apparently it was informing her of what this contract, or pact as it put it, would or could do for her and what she would give in turn. It also allowed her to understand that by touching the circle of runes, that she would be accepting the conditions. As she moved her hand that hadn't been burnt slowly to the circle of runes, a small rune appeared in the pattern. It offered to erase the damage that Eris had done.

    She'd move to accept the conditions as well as to take up the offer to erase the damage as the pain continued to pulse through her body from her hand.

    Eris



    With Ai accepting her contract and making that effort to make contact with the magic circle and seal the deal, the magic circle pulsed out suddenly. It felt as though someone had dropped something heavy or some great door had slammed shut, the reverberation of which shook the immediate area. In its passing the magic circle mended the charred arm as it traveled. In the same moment, Eris took the girl by the wrist, her touch hot as though it may start to burn but it was not damaging her so far, and pulled her close. She turned her in her arms so the back of her head pressed against Eris's chest. One of Eris's hands rested across the girl's belly, while her other took reached out over her shoulder, fingers splayed out in the air. Her head lowered to her ear to speak softly.

    "See now your sister." She commanded, her voice resonating within her as though the command pushed her to follow it whether she wished it or not. Something was working however, as the air beyond Eris's fingers rippled for a moment. Many worlds seemed to be flashing within the ripples, like many different channels being flipped through at record pace. Meany strikingly different from one another until suddenly it stopped all at once and a ring of fire burst into existence around the ripples which straightened and brought into focus.

    Through the ring of fire was an endless expanse of nothingness. Pure white was all that composed this reality and there was no distinction between up and down, no horizon to speak of. It was only white. Breaking up the uniformity was a lone figure, standing perfectly still with a head tilted towards where the sky should be relative to her, a shadow cast from an unseen source seemed to stretch on in one direction many times the height of the nude figure's own body.

    Neither Eris nor Ai would need for the figure to turn to face them to know who it was. Perhaps a hundred meters away Ai's sister stood alone in a white void, still and unmoving. Eris didn't need for the other girl to turn around in order to see her expression, though she knew what she would find already. Cold faded eyes that bore no life and no signs of intelligence.

    "Limbo" Eris whispered, not having let go of Ai yet but having dropped the hand she had raised before. "Or one form of it. It wares on the identity of a person. She may not be as you remember her now, but I will fix her soon. For now, there she is. Go to her side if you wish. She may be slow to respond, but she should still have some fragment of her humanity left." Eris dropped her arms and gave a gentle judge. If she went, Eris would follow a few meters behind her floating as an indistinct cloud of black smoke that contrasted against the white reality within the portal.

    The stars can't shine
    without the Darkness.


    Ai would watch the woman take her by the wrist. She'd wince slightly at how how her touch was, but soon noticed it wasn't going to burn her again and would be pulled close. Eris has turned her around and soon the back of her head was pressed against Eris' chest. Normally she'd have a comment, but now was neither the time, nor the place, especially with them having just made a contract with her. She'd feel one of her hands resting across her belly while the other reached over her shoulder. The woman had her fingers splayed and would soon speak softly into her eat.

    As the woman commanded for her to see her sister, as the air and even space beyond her fingers started to ripple for a bit. It seemed as if the scenery changed as if someone changed through channels without even seeing what was on. That is, until it stopped and a ring of fire surrounded the ripples, which stopped the sight from changing so many times to an endless expansion of white. Though that wasn't the first thing that she noticed, as the first thing that she had actually noticed was a lone figure that stood perfectly still with their head tilted what would be a sky if there was more than just nothing. However, there was also a shadow that stretched several times the height of the naked figure's body. She'd start to tremble ever so slightly as she knew who it was. They stood, maybe, one hundred meters away from the two.

    Eris would whisper into her ear, not having let go of her just yet. Stating that it was a form of limbo that wore on the identity of a person, so she probably wouldn't remember her as she was but she'd fix her soon. For the time being, she was allowed to go to her side, even though she would be slow to respond but she probably should have some fragment of her humanity left. As she finished, she would drop her arms and giving her a gentle nudge to go to her sister. However, as she did, many tears would start rolling down her face. She'd move forward a few steps, but would soon fall to her knees. "I-If you can... please... make her forget about the last time she saw me... when I killed her and everything she could possibly remember from here..." She'd say, when she could due to the tears. She couldn't get any closer to her sister, as the memories of feeling her blood on her hands when she should have just let her stab her instead, or subdue her without killing her.

    Eris



    Eris could feel the girls trepidation, her worries.  They were reasonable but weak,  when she pushed her forward to encourage her to approach the sister she had lost.  The sister that she had killed, as Eris saw herself.  Her slow response was expected,  but Eris's eyes narrowed when she fell to the ground in tears rather than approach her wish and confront her past.  


    "I can.  But I will not."  Eris said, shadows deepening around them at the face of the portal to Limbo-Lumos.  Instead,  Eris reached out forcefully with a violent grip and penetrated the portal up to her shoulder,  her arm was not seen on the other side.   Instead the woman in the distance was suddenly jerked to one side and with a heavy pull Eris tore the other girl free from her unseen ties to this realm and pulled her forward.

    On her hands and knees against the white landscape,  Ai's sister was enveloped in blue flames that seemed to eat at her form as a flame would wither a paper.  The emotionless husk of a soul now screaming in agony for the few seconds it took to wither away.   Before Ai could speak out,  Eris planted a foot against her chest pushing her into the ground.   

    "You wished for her return" Her voice was raised,  but not harsh.   "You are going to need to accept this past,  you are mine now.  And so is she.  Her life has passed, by your hands.  By mine, at your desire,  I give her new life... Within my will."  Eris increased the weight on her chest as though pushing her into the ground, and she did.  Through a crack in the earth Eris pushed Ai away and Eris walked through a second crack in the air.   A short fall,  a foot or so,  and she'd hit hot ground in a stone chamber.  Skulls lined the walls in a band that wrapped around the room between rows of unholy scripture carved in ornate bands above and below the five-thick band of skulls,   the corners supported with pillars of whole skeletons with tormented expressions.   In the center,  the stone ground ended around a pool,  glowing with heat as lava bubbled and popped. 

    Plucking a skull from the wall,  A new one took its place,  Eris held it in hand looking into its eyeless sockets with her own.   Mirroring Eris's beads of flame within the skull's sockets ignited two flames as though eyes.     At the back of the skull a spine grew out,  and branching out from it the ribs  its arms,  shoulders,  pelvis,  a complete skeleton forming in turn as Eris held the bones at the edge of the pool.     

    As the last bone formed,  Eris walked into the pool,  supporting the back of the skeleton with one arm and cradling its skull while her other hand resided on its chest.  The heat didn't effect her,  but the bones blackened and cracked with heat at first.    Submerging the skeleton beneath the glowing surface,  Eris herself up to her waist,  she lifted it back up.   Muscles were bulging,  nerves twitching and convulsing.   The body seemed... alive,  spasming and skin-less face contorting in pain,  but unable to produce sound at the moment.  The sister was not in there,  this body was nothing more than a shell for now.  Though it bared an intelligence that at this time could not experience anything but pain. 

    Eris submerged the body a second time,  lava filling the open mouth.   When it emerged this time,  red skin steamed off of what was clearly a very real body after the likeness of the sister.   Her hand against the body's chest still,  Eris's hand grew as bright as the surrounding lava as it seared a mark onto the flesh, blue flames crackling around her palm,  the flames pouring into the body.   A blackened hand print where her touch charred it much as she did to Ai's arm.    Immediately however the red skin,  fresh from being formed in the first place as well as a product of the molten pool,  faded away.  The black char itself healing into a pinkish mark as Eris carried the girl out of the pool and held her,  not yet approaching Ai as the body started to wake.
