"Not sure at all! That's exactly why I'm asking questions!" Yuki said cheerfully. "I don't neccesarily want to fight (although fighting an evil vampire would be fun), but I have to check if you're doing something bad. If you're doing something evil then I have to fight you, and if you're not evil then I don't have to fight you, but I need to be 100% sure about that, because if I'm wrong then I let an evil-doer go! Soooo do you have a way to prove you're not evil? If that's magically-created blood, you can just create some more right? What are you doing anyway I probably should have started with that question?"

Great, really great, she needed to hit it with her real body. Goddamn destiny rituals--he shouldn't be complaining for the opportunity, but it was still frustrating, and it felt almost manipulative. He'd been right about the motes taking out chunks of the stairs, but that was no comfort. The beast was igniting the slicks, and there'd be no point in his method of using the undersides of the stairs if the part above if the. . . blades of air it looked like were still hitting them.

The drones, right. Those would definitely be necessary. The oil was going to ignite no matter what. He could just have them go to the underside of the stairs, and hang there till the thing had passed, but getting back to the top of the stairs would be a struggle. So, he placed the drones against the wall, and prepared to blow a hole out.

"Gonna try to stop or slow it near us, stop me if you have a problem." The timing would be a little interesting, but perhaps he could do this.

Detonate one spherical and one oragami drone (or just the former if it would suffice) to create an alcove. Use the 4. Shef will activate Tighten the Noose [5], and then attempt to create a portal to ensnare the enemy's head when it passes nearby, specifically this portal will be as close to the surface of the stairs as possible without sacrificing much ability to actually get some of the enemy in it.

Utilize resolve if necessary for the timing and size. If resolve not necessary, fire a few shots into the thing. This is all conditional on not being stopped by Victoria or someone else. If he is stopped, follow Evi's plan completely, with the alcove, and then use the last result in the world line for a Rapid Fire [4] hyper on the beast as it goes by.

[Now Playing: Dragonslayer Armor]

You toss the drones ahead and detonate, blasting an alcove into the tower. With a quick swipe of her sword, Victoria splits open the dust to reveal your foe. So y'all pile into the alcove and as the bird flies by, you tighten the damn noose around its throat. The portal appears in front of its head and as it passes through, you constrict, it, the bird just fucking slamming into it at high speed, the edges cutting into its flesh and releasing more of that rainbow blood. The wind blasts, well, it enters the alcove, unavoidable really, just slashing the fuck outta everyone, but Léone's in front, hoisting Victoria's limp body like a shield, and well, it actually works quite well. She takes the brunt of the hit, everyone's got cuts and scrapes, but some healing should make that all fine. Time for the next part, fucking up the bird.

You put a couple more rounds into its chest, Hanako doing the same, more and more of that blood beginning to seep out of its form as it squawks out in pain and fury. Léone slams a cruciform blast of light into its underside while Victoria... throws her sword at it? The blade turning into a fairly large, fairly unpleasant looking snake which is now just slithering and biting its way across the bird's body. Evi for her part sends a pair of psionic lances into it, one into each wing.

Okay so the bird's much more wounded than before, but still it hasn't really taken any hit that will be decisive. You're running out of time too, the entrance to your portal, it's, beginning to give it's starting to move ever so slightly with the motion of your foe, it's starting to open too. It's, countering your magic with its own somehow, trying to break free.

Also a rather large magical circle appears before its talons aiming at your general postcode, a pulsating glob of abyssal magic the size of a small car taking form, and beginning to slowly drift towards you.

The abyss is rising up further and further.

"Let's move then, not going to be able to hold it for long." Shef swiped his hand, summoning a portal under their feet to drop them out on the stairs. It wouldn't have been the most difficult thing to get out of there, but if the monstrosities attack suddenly accelerated, Shef knew he wanted to be out of that confined space as soon as possible.


Get people out of the alcove. Utilize portals to replace sections of the stairs that have holes in them, and if necessary, try to lightly constrict some portals as handholds for climbing. If possible, take a few shots in the directions of its talons (the ones making the abyssal magic attack).

"An offworld beach vacation? That. . . actually sounds nice." Sure, it'd mean a bit of catching up to do with schoolwork, but the relaxation was probably worth the price of the extra work. Well, unless Kouta was too nervous to go, but judging by the way he was looking at her currently, the idea of space beach sounded more appealing than frightening to him.

Her eyes narrowed slightly. "So what's the catch? Swarming with aramitama? Weird pervy mononoke?"

"Not much. We've thankfully managed to keep the Aramitama mostly confined to Earth and its general vicinity, and any threats that do appear are expected to be fairly trivial. As for perverted Mononoke, does Minato count?"

The abyssal orb accelerates forwards, crashing into the alcove and bursting, glimmering darkness explodes outwards saturating the alcove. But you, you are not in that alcove, you portaled the fuck away already. Okay, it was a bit of a tight escape you'll admit, but it's more because there were six bodies and a wheelchair to move than anything else. Racing out, Léone presses her hands on Evi and Hanako like a faith healer, unlike a faith healer, it actually fucking works, the cuts vanishing from the pair and opening up on the angel's own body, soon to close once more. The sniper turns round and puts another wound in the bird before it finally wrenches it head free and begins to fly away, the serpent leaping back into its master's grasp and becoming a sword once more.

The beast spirals the fuck away from the tower, its movements noticeably more labored, its trajectory now traced by its own blood. It disengages before synchronizing its position from your own and... oh fuck. That's a tower. Another fucking tower, this one with a tip drenched in that black lubricant racing down to crash into your tower at a 60 degree angle. Naturally, it's aimed right to hit all of you.

"Incoming!"

"Shit." Wait, it could just throw another fucking tower at them? Wasn't it not supposed to bring down the escape routes? "Is it allowed to do that!?" Shef muttered this more for himself than any of the others. Well, he considered, if it was still following the requirements the client had laid out, then there were two options. Either the collision between towers would not bring down the first tower, but would effectively recoat it in oil and damage the steps more, or the first tower would collapse, and this second thing would be considered the escape route for the ritual magic.

Whatever, it didn't matter, they needed to move, and he had an idea. Possibly an absurdly terrible one, if he was honest with himself. But, it could work.

"Leone, get Hanako up quick as possible, we'll need covering fire, then come back. Evi, go. Victoria brace yourself, we're jumping." He grabbed the wheel chair with the mechanically reinforced structure of his left arm, waited a second for the projection to grab on to him, and then jumped, into the open air

Try to run for a bit so that the group is not directly in line with the impact. Then have Evi, Hanako, and Leone go, and jump with Victoria. As soon as they're low enough that the tower won't directly impact them, activate Hey Look over there [3] hyper, with both portal entrances horizontal, so that exiting one results in you moving upwards out the other. Leone is expected to come back for us at some point. Hopefully.

"It must provide a way to escape the abyss below, two towers fused together still satisfies this."
"Let us go, we have our commands."
"W-w-wait what are you- EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Léone grabs Hanako and seemingly vanishes upwards, Evi salutes and quite literally throws herself after them as that familiar corona envelops her body. You? You grab your protectorate, and jump.

The spear smashes into the tower above you. The impact is horrific, rubble and lubricant rain down from above, debris explodes out from the impact site, and the tower shudders, shifting back from the impact and tilting from the impact, lowering its that much closer to the abyssal depths below, the same depths you now find yourself plunging towards. Opening a portal, you dive down and launch right back up, Léone catches you and the chair in an awkward hold, a fairly large bullet hole through her gut, that was now beginning to close.

"Needed more power, Hanako meanwhile needs a hug."

Soon enough you find yourself rising up in another quick burst of speed, getting dropped off on the slicked up surface of the second tower. This, could be problematic to climb. Except, you probably won't be climbing it either, the bird's coming back, it's weakened, it's poisoned, it's pissed. it's just fucking dive bombing you guys now, aiming to slam its its now-crackling talons down in the midst of your group and maim the shit out of you all. You've the sinking feeling all that lubricant is about to detonate as well.

The oil wouldn't kill them, so Shef hoped. If they could spread out fast enough, the bird couldn't target them all. However, given it's size and the fact that they were on the oil, spreading out would be no easy task. . ."Spread out everyone, we need to finish this now."

Shef uses Manipulator [5], and shoots the bird. He will attempt to convince the thing that coming too close to them is a trap, dangerous. Just enough to make it hesitate, to give them time to both split up and to attack. He'll stick with the client, and if the manipulator doesn't work, use Room to Breathe[4] (using the last 4 in the line) with resolve to get Victoria away from the attack.

[Now Playing: Dragonslayer Armor]

"How durable is that body of yours?"
"Quite so, you are not alone in using it as a shield."

So with this giant fucking bird crashing down at you, what do you do? You fucking draw your pistol, and fire once. Granted, it's a fifty cal, but the bird's larger than a fucking house. The bullet embeds but well, it ain't stopping it in its tracks. Not directly. It sqawks in alarm, its wings forcing themselves open. It's slowing! But it's still coming down fast, too damn fast.

It's enough though. Victoria grabs her body and plants her sword down, forcing you behind her. Evi meanwhile grabs Hanako and leaps onto the newly vacated wheelchair, rewiring the strands of condensed psionic she's spent most of this battle forcing into it to link with the lances still embedded in the bird's wings. The end result? The two ladies getting sling shot towards the bird as its talons slam down, the explosion of air missing the pair.

Meanwhile for you three on the ground, the wind is, yeah, not ideal, but it seems to sort of split before you, the brunt of it missing you. Still everyone finds themselves being thrown up into the air.

With the wheelchair now slamming against the bird's throat, Evi retracts her next set of threads, reeling herself and Hanako down onto its back. Shaking with fear and adrenaline the sniper gets to work, her regalia shifting and anchoring itself into the beast's flesh as a freshly deployed shadow clone lowers the sniper cannon's barrel right against the base of the monster's neck and pulls the trigger.

The impact slams it against the tower, the recoil tears the weapon and a great deal of its cloak-like hide from its body, the shadow clone dissipating as the regalia slams into its chest. The bird is still alive. The bird is still moving. For now.

Remember how Hanako's Regalia fires drills?

Well you ever had one of those shredding garbage disposal units in your sinks? You hear something like that, but louder, angrier. A geyser of blood, bone, and spinal fluid just fucking erupts as the drill tears deeper and deeper into the creature's body, its body reduced to really just twitching.

It's at this point that Léone dashes over over its head, dropping Victoria's limp body onto it. A frightfully large crucifix of holy light forming in her raised hand.

"Shef! This task can be done with a single arm." She holds out her other arm, bracing for the impact.

Shef nodded, understanding what she needed, that boost in damage for insurance. So steadying himself and planting his feet firmly, he fired his shot. It wouldn't do to miss now at this crucial moment, right? And he told himself that the detonation of the oil might slightly change the bullets course, or even that if the beast pulled a last trick, or the tower began to crumble, he still wanted to hit. Shef knew there was a possibility that he wanted to do this for reasons that had little to do with tactics. But the risks associated with missing were the main reason, he reassured himself.

Use Tracer [R] on Leone's arm.

Yeah up, you is just fucking explode her arm. Like she's just been fucking sprayed with blood that a second ago was in the arm she no longer has.

"That's a bit excessive. I'd have let you unload into me outside of battle you know, if that is what is takes to sate your desires." The cross grows larger and she draws her attention back to the task at hand. "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of all the other illusions of Man, I lay you to rest."

((At this point the Sanctuary would decay, depositing you all back in the event hall. Where and when would you like your next scene to be set.))

"Oh, very funny."

"You said you didn't need an arm. So, I removed it. Leave it at that." Shef growled. Was it always going to be like this when that woman was around? He could let it go though. They'd made it out, the monstrosity was dealt with, and he had a little bit more data. If Leone did become a threat ever, he was a little more certain about his ability to deal with that kind of problem. It was seeming less and less likely as time went on, but best to keep it in mind.

Overall it had been a successful mission though, and Shef resolved to not let the tasteless joke sour his mood for too long.
