The small town known as Toylaten is known for making toys for people all over Earthland but for some reason it has recently stopped shipping out toys and there has been multiple jobs put up for assistance but no one has come back or sent any info on what is going on. You take the job and head to Toylaten and when you arrive you see that the entire town has been morphed into toy-like versions of everything. As you investigate the area you find talking toys and are suddenly surprised by two 6 year old twins named Chip and Chen. The twins quickly use their magic on you from amulets on each of their chests and turn you into toys like the rest of the town. You are made into a 1 ft tall toy variant of yourself that can still use your magic but are still just a toy. You must stop the twins somehow while as a toy.
Wolf Toys - These toys are pretty vicious and will try to bite at you with their metal teeth and slash you with their metal claws. Their attacks deal C-rank damage and they can take 2 C-rank damage.
Pirate Toys - These toys are even more vicious than the Wolf Toys and bigger on top of that. They stand at 3 feet tall. They use their swords to slash and stab at you while using toy pistols to shoot bullets at you. Their attacks deal B-rank damage and they can take 3 B-rank damage.
The Twins - The Twins themselves will fight against you. They are 4 feet tall and will use their Toy-Make magic to make anything they touch into a toy version that they will use as a sort of weapon. They think they are only playing though while you are fighting them but that does not mean they are not playing rough with you. They will make toy guns to shoot at you as well as toy blades to slash you with. They will deal B-rank damage per hit with each of their attacks. They take 6 B-rank damage HP each to take out. Upon defeating them the kids will laugh and think that the games were just starting.
Gigantron Toy - The two twins come together and make a huge toy(compared to your current size) of 8 feet tall. It resembles a robot of some sort and the boys will ride on top of it together as it shoots off lasers from 6 orbs on its chest and destroys things. It comes complete with a 6 foot sword that it swings around to cause more damage. This toy takes 12 B-rank damage to defeat and deals A-rank damage with its attacks. Defeating this will knock both of the twins out also as well as destroying the amulets and ending the chaos they caused.
Reward: 10,000 jewels and 2 B-ranks worth of exp. You also receive a toy version of yourself to randomly have as a memento of the job.
Now, about Sorano, Hoshi, and toys. First of all, please remember that Sorano was once any normal little kid, not an emotionless mage who has tons of awesome powers etc, and Hoshi was once a normal exceed who wouldn't tremble in fright at the sight of a crumb. So, both had rather fond memories concerning toys, and what fun they had playing when they were younger. Sorano remembered the small games that involved beads, rods, and storytelling, the dolls she would wear down to thread, and all those other beloved, then neglected little treasures that children find great joy in. Hoshi remembered balls of yarn chased around their camp, cheerful laughter and nice, warm, fearless days where she had been relaxed and happy, opposed to her today. So, both rather liked toys.
Well, they did. But all this ended as they embarked on a new job... Because, really, once you've experienced the terrors of toyhood, I doubt anyone would see their beloved old action figures the same way anymore.
Toylaten was a rather small village, one that was quite famous for their excellent toys. From dollhouses to human-sized play houses, from games to decorations, Toylaten made them all. However, recently the two girls had found a job request on the board written in the tiniest handwriting they'd ever seen. After reading it over, it was off to Toylaten.
As they flew over Fiore, Sorano turned to Hoshi, consulting the exceed. "What do you think happened there, Hoshi?" she asked, having to raise her voice in the wind. "I don't know, Sorano, perhaps a factory explosion? I've heard those are pretty common in factories. Why not toy factories too? But oohhh, it sounds so ominous and s-scary..." she shuddered. The exceed could beep seen with a shaken, blank look in her eyes, obviously terrified of something. And that something could be anything from horror at the prospect of an explosion, to whether she would get yelled at for using "but" at the beginning of a sentence. Yup, definition of scaredy-cat right there.
Sorano frowned, a dark look on her face. "I think it may be more than that, Hoshi... I'm afraid it may be more..." she muttered, looking straight ahead again. She had been determined to do as much good, save as much lives as she had taken, and this was yet another step on the way. She should be able to handle things, being a B rank now, no longer a weak D or C rank out on a scary-looking job. The air seemed to tense as they neared the village of Toylaten, and Sorano began scanning the ground for human auras and buildings.
"Hey... Hoshi, do you see any people or buildings?" Sorano asked cautiously, dread sinking down on her. "N-no... Sorano..." came the shaken reply. As they neared the ground, still no people appeared, until Sorano bent down to look at an odd pattern of large rocks nearby. Upon closer inspection of these rocks, however, Sorano gasped. "W-what is this..." she whispered, carefully touching the miniature roof of a house. Even closer, she could see small toy-sized people running about in fear at their shadow, terrified for their lives. "Oh, no... Oh no, oh no, fly, Hoshi, fly!" Sorano yelled, having predicted what was about to happen next.
But it was too late. Suddenly, two tiny boys, looking around six years old jumped out, shining amulets flashing around their necks. "Take that!" one shouted, a jolt of light bursting out. And then... With a horrible squashed sensation, Sorano and Hoshi fell, and fell, Hoshi barely spreading her wings in time to slow their fall. As they landed, among the normal sized buildings... They knew what had happened.
"S-sorano-chan... We're toys now, aren't we..."
