[GS] Virgo.

Recommended Posts

I’m getting too old for this nonsense. It’s based on physicality rather than actuality at this point. Sometimes one can find themself tired of getting torn apart by the world around them. No matter how much help is given, it still doesn’t seem to be enough. 

Using the darkness swelling beneath her heels she darts across the jagged ground in Arashi’s direction. As she moves her hand reaches for the weapon holstered within the flapping waves of her coat. While brandishing it she is left wondering which rounds she’d left inside of it. Please be incendiary...

Regardless of the round, Capria’s current motives lie in the realm of distraction. Attacking as a centerpiece for attack to allow the Mistress the time necessary to accomplish whatever goal it is she needs to complete. So this is what she does. The first round goes off, the power of the blast not strong enough to avoid the gusts of air acting against it. So the mark is missed. However, the point is made. It slams into the giant’s hips rather than center mass. A hit is still a hit.

Smoke, a black cloud of it swirls about. Not the incendiary she’d hoped for. More of a deterrent than anything else really. Similar to a smoke bomb. Capria fires again, more carefully this time.

Now she accounts for wind shear, at least as best she can due to Virgo’s unpredictable movements. Another loud boom is lost in the earth shattering scream of the god’s cannon as it draws another line into the rocks at their feet. This time it turns, this time in its crazed and confused anger it faces Capria and Arashi down.

Only one arm diagonals across her chest this time as she digs her heels in to keep from being blown backwards. It was another smoke bomb. This time in Virgo’s neck. Blocking her view only for a moment before its self-generated wind carries it away. Please tell me she’s almost ready, whatever it is she’s planning.

The ground is gutted again, a flicker of holy cannon light slams into it causing it to crumble. This time the damage spreads, having been beaten upon too many times, a rippling shatter. Cracks spread along the rocky landscape beneath their feet. The world below is wavering, and those cracks become rifts that threaten to become ravines. Oh...fantastic. How wonder--

The sarcasm is literally lost on her in that moment. Tumbling and dancing around in an attempt to avoid the onslaught aimed at her for terrorizing an already upset being. No matter which way she thinks to slice it it just doesn't feel entirely fair or right. But what really is fair anymore? This she can't answer.

So instead she continues to move, firing again, leaving three rounds left in the caster set to draw the creatures attention. And again. All black smoke and nothing more. Please hurry...

Is it not time yet? It is taking quite a while.

While Shishi wanted to complain out loud, she did not have the luxury to do so. It was problematice enough to just dodge the oncoming air stikes but even harder still when she have to protect a static target. As the clock goes on ticking and the seconds pass by (which seemed quite a rather long time), Shishi's armor have finally grown big enough to cover her entire body. For the sake of her femininity, the Heaven's armor had a built-in property of invisible mode which allowed Shishi to still look like a normal persol while offering maximum full-body protection.

The first weapon she summoned was Heavenly Virtue. An arming sword gifted to her from her patron, the Nameless Goddess. Unlike regular swords, the blade is not longer visible and only the hilt can be seen. as Shishi used it to slash at the incoming air strikes. Like its sister blade, the edge never dulls and can cut through magic. However it was not enough because it also required her to be in close contact with the air strikes and only left her shaken from the impact of her sword's collision and Virgo's attacks. 

And yet the goddess always provides. In her dire situation, the energy surged within the blade as Shishi's efforts were finally rewarded. One swing of her sword and the slash seemed to travel further that Shishi would have expected. It cut through one of Virgo's strike, giving her enough time to prepare for the next one.

"Got it!" the older sister finally exclaimed. Numerous floating sigils surrounded her while something shot out of her outstretch palms. It was for a brief moment but one would be surprised to see that it was a couple of divine essences taken from the Renovatian gods.

Setting the six god essences on the outer ring. 
Cialo. Montis Maximus. Aquarius. Rifornire. Pisces. Sagittarius. 
Setting the one god essence as the focal point. Libra.
Let the High Lord's blade channel the spell array into Virgo.

As the divine essence hastily lined up above her. All six forming a circle and then one was set in the center. Lastly, she unsheathed her sword, the artifact known as Baeoi. She thrust the weapon upward, the blade' tip touching Libra's divine essence.

Laughter erupted from her luscious lips. "It is done."

Divine energy rose around her and then it rose into the heavens. It will take time for it to reach Virgo but not that long. With her power spent, the divine essences were returned inside her body and Baeoi was sheathed back into its scabbard. Her body slumped to the ground, weak and spent. For now.

"Down you go Virgo," she whispered to herself. Then she barked at her companions. "It's not everyday that we get to see a god brought down to our level. Prepare you're best attacks. We'll hit once she falls and before she recovers."

Despite the ongoing rampage of Virgo’s might as a last ditch effort to take vengeance on the lands being taken from it, Capria and Arashi fight back. The more human of the two ducking and dodging and drawing attention as best she can in order to allow Arashi to make an engagement against the dying God as she saw fit to do.

All the while, Capria spends numerous seconds hoping for the other two women to take their pan to heart. And hurry it up before something worse than an arm is lost. There’s little to be helped by the one armed inquisitor as she grapples against heavy ethereal air blasts to pick-pocket her very own person. Plucking whatever canister of rounds she can find that hasn’t been dented by flying earthen rocks. The sounds of which are more like thuds when they collide into her cloth wrapped body. 

Painful, worse than the sting of bees. Even the tiniest fragments lead to scrapes and scratches, forcing tiny drops of blood to adhere to her skin. Drying instantaneously in windstruck smears.

What are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present for a frown to spring upon her lips. And as inwardly spoken are those words, they are outwardly expressed in a black mass. Crawling from the heels of her boots to shield her from dust and rocks. Quickly, she exchanges canisters, better prepared and more aware of those being used this time around. Having the assistance of a shadow to allow her a break. 

It is short lived as quite a few things happen. It always seems to go so quickly. Engaging the enemy, backing up complete strangers while doing so...coming out...somewhere on top. The thought causes her eyes to roll as memory protrudes from the back of her mind to a more delicate time in the past. Something she’d never forget, no matter the want to burn the blush that takes to her cheeks from existence. Damn it all.

The only words for it really. The shadows disembark and take to wings at her back. Not for flight, but for swiping away chunks of the enemy attack. Enabling her to maneuver more adequately through this godly maelstrom of weakening power.

A shot rings out, this time a more corrosive expression of herbological combination. The carefully weighed constitutions portrayed in the munition seeking out an arm of the giant Virgo. The explosion of which isn’t volatile in the least. More of a disintegration really. Through the Prime’s ability to waste the power of such a precious being, all Capria can do is duck away from another boiling blast of light. Losing sight of the degrading substance and the angry creature’s wail of injustice at being wounded in such a lowly manner. 

The woman feels some sort of sadness about it, but self preservation takes shotgun. Many things need to be done in this crazy world filled with intrigue and secrets. So many to break open, so many puzzles to be solved. And she would be there, hopefully. Intact and one piece is the more ideal version of her dreams, but either way. Alive is alive, and dead is not the current preference of the time. 

I am feeling a little old in age right now.

Maybe you should get out more then, and face the world instead of hiding in its shadow.

Very pun inlaid, even for you.

Another shot rings out, but it’s at this time that calamity strikes. The sisters having done their job rather well indeed. As Virgo suddenly begins to fall from the sky. A massive God struck down by the magic and ingenuity of so few. Such a crushing moment. Both for Gods and the ground beneath her and Arashi’s feet. It cracks and explodes under the weight of such a being. Spraying the land with more rocks and dust than before. Flickering explosions of light discoing out before sputtering to and end. 

But it doesn’t end there, oh no. It is nothing more than the beginning of a new cat fight. Solely on a more..unlevel but fair playing field for those who cannot seem to find the courage to spread their wings and fly. Bang. Bang. Bang.

Bullets of corrosion rain down on the fallen being before it has the time to right itself. Her voice escapes her in earnest now, screaming for Arashi to attack. “Let’s go!”

Unlike other hunters, her sister's crew had no room for complacency. During the downtimes between hunts where they were travelling, every member of her crew where busy studying, learning and preparing for the next fight. This was of course when Shishi had the time to learn, analyse and  theorize on the knowledge she had attained from the very gods themselves that they have defeated. This of course lead to the revelation of a new skill. It was perhaps time to put her theory to the test.

As soon as her sister cast her spell, Shishi did not waste any time preparing her action. Gathering a small amount of power within her, she formed a tiny black orb. It might have been a small dot but it contains a tremendous gravitational force but only pulled the excess energy within its vicinity. Shishi let the sphere absorb as much energy as possible until Virgo came into plain view.

With the sphere almost reaching its climax point, Shishi positioned before it. Golden electricity crackled around her left arm as she gauged the speed of Virgo's descent. With the timing set on her mind, more electricity formed around her left arm. Sagittarius-Mavajo Style Railgun. Then she punched the sphere letting the electricity around her punching arm to form supernatural rails that propelled the black sphere at insane speeds. 

The black sphere soon reached the god's body and upon contact, all the gathered and condensed energy within it would be released in the form of a massive explosion. Ravenbush Style Vortex Hole. As a precaution, Shishi even gave the sphere all the divine traits that she had borrowed from the sealed god essences within her sister. She needed her theory to succeed. After all, this ability would be one of her greater contributions to the Blackspear information archive.

Arashi focused about ten percent of her fire power around her body, enhancing her speed and strength for a brief moment, jumping out of the way of the broken ground beneath her. Power was flowing through her, as the god fell into the ground and damaged the ground that she moved out of the way using a new technique she had learned as of recent to have better control over her powers in her body, only downside is that her flames heated her blood up a tremendous amount and she only could use a certain amount of time before she started to suffer consequences of not being used to it.

As she was screaming for Arashi to attack, Arashi withdrawn her shield, it disappearing into thin air, going to charge off an attack, she attacked by throwing a punch with all her strength, she had available that she able to use plus the increase she had from using that new technique she had directly at the god. Hopefully it should at least do some damage with the immense wind pressure that punch would create.

The white-haired woman pulled herself off the ground. The backlash of such a massive magical array would be enough to kill most casters but not her. Baeoi, the High Lord's blade, had always ensured that she would survive no matter the problem. Zusammen . One of Baeoi's abilities, granted her superhuman levels of durability, perhaps even bordering on nigh invulnerability. As long as she has this blade, she could be a bit more reckless. The only downside was pain. Somehow, pain was still a large factor and experiencing a shit ton of it made the woman wince. Pushing through the pain, she willed herself up and admired her handiwork. The fallen god, struggling to escape the binds that shackled her divine being. However, there is still more work needed to be done.

Beannachdan. Another one of Baeoi's abilities which seemed to be conveniently tailor-made for the woman. The ability was manifested soft pink bubble of energy that filled around five meters of space with her in the center. Trusting the high lord's blade, she charged at the rampaging god with nary a care for the world.

"I'll keep her distracted!" she bellowed at her companions. "Keep on attacking from a distance."

As she closed the distance, her personal skill would activate. The same ability she used to defeat Cialo would be manifested to protect herself against the dust and debris that was sent her way. Physical objects passing through her barrier would be quickly disintegrated, the bonds their particles shared would be severely broken beyond repair. Anything magical would simply suffer the massively weakening and debilitating effect of the pink aura. Whatever is left that defied both her protection would be unceremoniously cut down by the shimmering grey metal which had proven to cut through almost anything except for the living.

Ina combination of attacks by this unbending group of women the creature falters yet again, giving way to Capria's next adjustments in movement. Rather than continue to fire she stills. Meditating on the spot ever so briefly amid the chaos to allow tendrils of darkness to crawl from her form, attaching to the shadows beneath and around the large godly being. Ensnaring it at its fumble in order to permit The others to do the utmost damage and bring the being down to its final resting place. 

Hairs whips across her face in painfully stinging waves, and yet she remains still. The earth beneath her feet rumbling terrifyingly so, does not even jitter her from the position she holds. This would be the end. They would finish, together.  This is where Capria stays until the white haired woman's final blow comes, awaiting the downfall as if expecting this to be last strike. Having watched and learned and gathered that information through every single one of her current team members attacks and strategic movements. Obviously marking them as things to be remembered in the future.

Speed was of the essence. The white-haired woman took one heavy step forward before leaping high into the air to face the dying god. At the peak of her leap, her hair turned black and her face shifts to one the masses were more familiar with. Right now, she was the notorious Mistress Blackhead last seen in Tia. On her hand was the High Lord's blade, Baeoi, glimmering with dull grey light. Several spectral spears manifested around her, one for each god she and her companions have slain and all were aimed at the trapped old god Virgo. With a swing of her blade, the spears were propelled forward, each one brimming with divine energy which delivered powerful blows upon impact. Weakened and bound, Virgo’s death was near.

However, the black-haired woman once known as the Mistress, whispered to the goddess. Words only the two of them could hear. That was when Virgo’s head dropped down and all defiance disappeared from her face. All that was left was acceptance to for her fate. Her body shrunk down to seven feet tall, yet the divine spears were still sticking out of Virgo’s body and the tendrils of darkness still kept her chained and restricted. The black-haired woman looked down at the fallen goddess as tears fall down her cheeks.

“Please accept my apologies,” the woman muttered before her fist plunged into the goddess’ chest and exited through the deity’s back. Pulling her fist out, she unclenched it to show the divine essence she pulled out of the god.

As her appearance reverted back to the one Capria and Arashi were used to, she turned to her companions and spoke. “Thank you for your help. We should split the reward for this."
