Ignis

Agh! It’s got me. More painful than I expected, but still, now I…

I turn my head to my shock as I hear our partner’s summoner give a shout of warning. I turn to see both Pyre and the other mech racing towards me.

Shit!

I react quickly, grabbing hold of the vines that are binding me in my hands, channeled with light magic. I start tightening my grip to smite the vines, hopefully breaking me free so I can run out of the way of the charging machine.

Tentacle monsters. It had to be tentacle monsters. I start backing up, casting more wind magic out to keep the sickeningly green fluid away. I frown at the vines though.

I haven’t got many ways to effectively hit targets like this, but as I glance at it, a plan does come to mind. I raise my arms up in defense, between the approaching vines and myself.

“Very well,” I start, straining to keep my voice level, “come and get me, then.”

I’m thinking me and mark’s last post went unnoticed again- we’ve yet to be parsed from a page or two ago. Judging by how I posted a few minutes before you, I think I just ninja’d you or somesuch.

Justin

This time, I can’t watch. As I divert my gaze down, I catch the priorly missed bracelet on my wrist.

Fuck, Ignis, I forgot! I think, forgetting for a moment I’m about to watch him die. I only forget for a moment though, and press it immediately.

Ignis

In between my dying screams, I’d swear that I felt Justin being confident on the other end. Which is strange, considering I’m being fried to death. I stand up to face him before I realize just what’s happened, and start gradually breaking out into a wide smile as I instead face the mech. I suddenly feel empowered, and I wind up for a strong swing to send into the wind. I put my aim on it’s last weapon: that damned lightning cannon, and target it at the elbow. I charge up for it, perhaps longer than necessary (now I simply loathe these machines), before throwing my punch.

As I watch Ignis getting blasted off, I can’t help but cringe at the sight, looking away so I don’t have to see what’s happened.

Your input is still valued! I impossibly hear from Ignis.

Ignis

There could be a conversation about how I should be more self-sufficient without having my actions planned from outside, but it would have to be much later on.

When I’m not getting filled with shrapnel, preferably.

With at least Justin somewhat back in the action, I can focus more on acting. For starters, the mech is trying to back up. It’s really the only thing it can do, since I’ve effectively neutered it in terms of melee, and any other quick forms of attack. That said, closing in is the best course of action, I reason. The pain from the various metal shards is a little worrying, though, and I’d rather not be lines with targets for the bot to hit.

I get to my feet, sending a push into the wind towards the mech so I can get a boost away from it as I start running towards the nearest cover.

Ignis

It takes several moments to gain a footing on this machine, but with it done I clearly have the advantage. It doesn’t even attempt to swat at me, and with it’s cannon turned to target me, it still doesn’t shoot. Still, it’s a problem to let it have an option for attacking me.

I stand over top the cannon, holding onto the barrel with both hands as I slide around it, moving out of the way of it’s aim. I tighten my brow as I focus, charging a small amount of light magic into my hands for extra leverage as I start trying to pry the turret off.

[I tried to not laugh at the Rayman line. I laughed a lot instead.]

Ignis

Triumph is a good way to describe the feeling I now have after pulling off that attack. Reality, however, appear to have different plans as I get hi- well, slightly bonked at most. Timing, however, seems to be key here. I jump up to grasp the attacking limb, both arms used to try and get a grip around it as I seek to pull myself onto the behemoth.

Justin

My mind keeps racing as I watch the battle unfold. It’d be great to join in, but, seriously? Every time Ignis strikes I realize I’d be getting plastered all over the ground. It doesn’t stop me from considering how I’d fight if I could though.

For instance, I can see the mech giving a swing. Since they run on humanoid anatomy, I reason that it would be a good move to step into the swing closer to the mech. Since Ignis seems to have enhanced strength, he should be able to counter by hitting its…

Ignis

…elbow, stopping it’s momentum there. I hear continuing to rattle off. I realize he’s unwittingly been providing me with combat expertise simply by observing. So, as I build light energy into my arm and strike a blow in return, I make a note to thank him for thinking so quickly later.

Ignis

Hm. Instead of hitting the hand, I struck the blade. While chastising myself over such an error would normally be right in my mind, I quickly realize that, as the machine moves for a shot, now is not at all the time. In a brief moment of inspiration, I duck down beside the hand I just struck at, trying to put it between the gun and myself as a shield.

I gasp in amazement; these machines must be quite powerful to be capable of such brute force. There’s still little time for lingering, and I can still hear Justin’s urgent calls as he shows me – unintentionally, but still – what’s happening out of my line of sight.

Now, for instance, I can tell it’s time to act quickly again. I rise to my feet and sprint forwards, charging light magic for a smite into my hand, taking a heavy swing at the machine’s sword bearing hand.

Since the battle began, I can’t help but feel idle. I haven’t (well, can’t) fight, so frustration and anxiety is normal, I tell myself.

You do more than you think. I hear echo through my head. I’m about to question what he means, before I see the machine prepare for what surely will be a devastatingly strong swing. The shock hits me again as it seems Ignis feels it as well. All in one second, he drops to his chest, lying flat upon the ground so as not to be cut in two.

Ignis

Despite the urgency of the situation, a small prayer of thanks is in order as I hear the bullets continue to fly. I immediately cease any gratitude to fate when I hear the automaton stomp its way over to me. I scrunch my brow together, trying to get a feel for how tall it was before I turn towards the tree, trying to place where the machine gun is on the other side before winding up for a strong wind-carried punch, aiming for the rapid-fire mount from cover.

[Huh? Oh, right. We left one alive. Meh.]

Ignis

Shit. Is all that, for once, I can think of. The mechs are huge, and it doesn’t take me long to figure out that standing here is a bad idea.

The one focusing fire on me is, unfortunately, the only concern for me right now. Using the wind for a speed boost, I start running for the tree, seeking shelter behind it from the bullets.

Hopefully, from my shared memories with Justin, it won’t figure out to lead its shots that quickly.

As I stare down the now falling-and-burning unit of creatures, I maneuver through their lines, if they could even be called that anymore. “I believe that to be,” I pause as I get to the one I only punched earlier, charging light magic into my foot and stomping on it, “the last of them!”

I turn to observe the lichen thralls that have yet to fully burn, still aware of how they may try and attack until fully defeated.

“Pyre, was it?” I turn my head to the side a little to face my battle companion. “Very fine work.”

Ignis

I have to frown, initially. I was hoping the attack would have done more to this one, but it seems they are like entities, rather resilient. Still, the beast persists in apparently attempting to go for a grappling match. With my free hand, I reach out and grasp the creature by its shoulder, pulling myself in faster. At the same time, I charge light magic up towards my head before I lean forwards, going for a head butt, and using any leftover forwards momentum to get out of the way of the remaining lichen monsters’ attack.

Ignis

I flinch in surprise. After landing my hits, everything happened extremely quickly. As I catch up, I manage to get free, largely thanks to the fire attack. I get a feel for my injured shoulder. It’s a little tender, but otherwise fine. Now able to move with my legs no longer burdened, I act quickly. First, I lunge forwards. While simple (and I can feel Justin from the sidelines thinking so), it gets me out of the way of the creatures that are currently on fire. Immediately after, I take a swing at the club-carrying monster with my axe, before throwing a punch at the one that threw a hammer, projecting it into the wind for it to cover the distance.

Ignis

Just as I’m about to strike, the fire overtakes the creatures, and they seem to fall. Unfortunately, all the others decide simultaneously it’s a good time to charge. In a moment of inspiration, I grab the axe the monster dropped, and return the charge. To balance it in my favor, however, I come up with a plan. I make the wind blow towards a small group of them, nearly stumbling as I get a speed boost from the tailwind. The foes I’m charging at also feel the effect as they suddenly find themselves buffeted. I hold the axe at one hand, charged light magic for a smite in the other as I come in, swinging with a flurry of attacks.

Me and Mark’s last post never got responded to. Since BC did the last one I think that’s just a communication hitch, though.

I can’t help but become hopeful at the successful fire assist. Our teamwork is far more powerful than I would have anticipated. I shake all victorious celebrations out of my head as soon as I see the stragglers become brave enough for a charge. I step back out of their immediate range, so that they swing and create an opening before I can strike.

Ignis Lux

Now would be appropriate. I state in a strict tone.

He summons me quickly, and I can hear his mental surprise from my form change. However, there isn’t any time to bother explaining to him how this works, clearly. The creatures are approaching, and I need a plan. The fire attack seems to be especially effective against them, but perhaps less efficient in avoiding attacking Justin and I. Getting a careful feel for my magic, I start pulling at the wind, dragging the burning air around to strike at their front, hopefully both slowing them down and burning them. In the meantime, I wait for them to get closer, a powerful feeling coming from my hand as I charge it with light.

I suspect I know what I’m doing, don’t worry. I hopefully sound comforting to Justin.

I select “Defeat” for our main goal; it seems straightforwards enough, and an easily defined goal would be nice. For a secondary, I select “Locate”, seeing as how it wouldn’t disrupt us should we decide not to do it, but still not overburden us if we do. I have to smile a little at the reference, but I can practically feel Ignis giving a confused look from inside my head. Deciding it’s more work than worth, I follow Haven’s lead, hands held from behind my back.

Are you ready for combat? I can hear Ignis question.

Funny, I was about to ask you that.

“Electric and metal?” I repeat, giving it some thought. “Well, I don’t see why not. A few dungeons have electric and metal elements, so that narrows down our choices.” I scroll through the list, mentally highlighting each one that featured both.

“We’re Light and air.” I say as I look over one in particular. I unsummon Ignis as I continue. “We share an air element, so that could come in hand later. Not sure yet though…Does this look good?” I finally indicate towards the Mushroom Cloud Complex.

“It has electric and metal listed as some of its dominant elements, that work with you?”

I mentally breathe a sigh of relief. That was lucky. I comment to Ignis.

Sufficient social skills doesn’t require luck. And don’t make me repeat what you think of luck, either. He retorts.

As I turn around to lead us to the teleporters, I roll my eyes.

“Great! It’ll be nice to have a friend close by for this.”

That said, I pause and start considering something for a moment. “Of course, what dungeon we should take is another matter. Ignis and I didn’t get far into deciding ourselves, so if you’d like, you can pick.” I offer as we reach the teleportation room.

[A re-post, so that I don’t pull a dick move on B_S.]

Justin

We find ourselves stumped on a choice. A few look good, here and there, but there’s always some issue at hand one of us will think of. The gist of it can be described as elemental clashing, how we don’t want to find ourselves in an issue where the elements we’ll face will have a leg up on us.

A companion. We need a companion for this. Ignis finally throws out. I was hoping to avoid the same conclusion, but as time passed it was the only one that would solve our problems.

Okay, who? I ask back.

We arrived with another individual, did we not? I would think he is late to find a group for accompaniment as well.

I nod, and get ready to prepare something to say in introduction, but before I can even get past “Hello”, Ignis is out the doorway, seeking him out. I stare stunned for only a second before I start to follow him. With his head start, I only catch up to him as he boldly approaches the fellow newcomer with a smile.

“Hello.” I hear him say as I catch up, standing by his side. “My name is Ignis Lux. My companion here is Justin, my summoner. On both our behalves, I would request that you accompany us to a dungeon.” He says without missing a beat. I blink, surprised, at his general forwardness.

“Er, what he said.” I add in.
