I can't promise any outcome. -Tari floods the entire arena with extremely dangerous and deadly amounts of Mana before then sealing off all access to her own while still granting herself the ability link with it whenever necessary.-
Wise decision. -All the while they speak, Tari has used very weak pulses of Mana to read and comprehend the structure of Virgos IBM from a distance, and as the crystals become closer, Tari carves a transmutation circle on her gauntlet-
I appreciate the compliment. -noting that Tari carved a transmutation circle in her gauntlet, Virgo uses shifting to constantly alter the molecular structure of his IBM before opting to take the initiative by forming the crystals into large spokes which come rushing at Tarianna-
If you thought simply altering its structure would help, then I guess you've never considered real-time adaptability of the pulse signature. -As the crystal spikes strike at Tari, she leaps forward, tapping on the spikes and shattering them witht he Deconstruction stage of alchemy before landing on the Casted IBM surface with her right hand and shattering what remains on the ground before then using her numerous boosts, including a significantly increased passive enhancement just for this fight to then use the reflective nature of the shattered IBM crystal to and use the mirror world to blip around Virgo with an entirely random and constantly changing pattern before striking him with enough physical force to split a large island apart from a random direction before disappearing entirely-
-with Unity heightened, Virgo shifts the Casted IBM into just regular IBM whilst Tarianna darts around him before countering her strike with a movement so sleight that it can barely be noticed, however with his new positioning, Virgo is able to avoid the majority of the force of Tarianna's attack before flickering away-
-While Virgo is able to avoid the main force of Tari's attack, thanks to her acute attention to detail down to the microscopic level, she is able to notice the shift in Virgo's mass, indicating his slight movement to the side. However, she is unsure of how her chosen counter would affect him, because as of this moment, she has not fallen far enough to not hesitate killing one she has care for. Thus, before Virgo manages to flicker away, in that last microsecond before he disappears, Tari uses her Alchemy to freeze the nitrogen into a spike that tears through Virgo's left leg before he flickers. She's aware that this did pidly to hinder him, but is proud enough that she has come so far as to notice the minute details of such an intelligent mind's actions.-
-noticing changes in the air with his passive IBM secretion, Virgo is able to shift his leg into pure IBM, negating any harm done to him as the spine merely just continues on its path- Observant -uses the art of acceleration on his arm before punching the air and consequently sending a gargantuan shockwave of force capable of flattening cities towards Tarianna-
-Noticing the change in pressure as a result of the approaching shockwave, she activates her Crimson Steel and tanks the shockwave no problem. She then reaches her arms out the sides and spreads open her hands, and in an instant everything in the air, the ground, and Virgo are frozen completely solid.Due to the extreme cold, the gasses have condensed to solid states, rendering the area a vacuum due to the lack of breathable air. Tari solves this by using her magic to recycle oxygen and carbon to sustain her holding her own breath while also using her mana as a temperature regulator. Thanks to the cold, Virgo's body functions have been complete shut down in a state of stasis. Unable to react, Tari begins to step towards Virgo and stops before him, raising her hands in the position where she's about to snap her fingers.-
-within the instant that Tari raises her hands, Virgo's unity kicks in predicting an array of future outcomes, as a result, Virgo instinctively and instantaneously converts the potential energy of the molecules around him into kinetic energy, before "charging them", thus rendering Tarinanna's condensation useless within his around his own body- I'm not usually one to doubt my abilities but I'm going to pretend that unity was lying to me and you weren't about to kill me.
-Seeing as how Virgo's acceleration has spared him the effects of being flash frozen, Tari raises her hands in the position where she's about to snap her fingers As temperature lowers enough to render the air into a gassy state, yet absurdly cold.- [I hope you're familiar with the effects of thermal expansion.] -When she snaps her fingers, the sudden expansion of the cold air as a result of the sudden jump in temperature creates an explosion that cracks the barrier surrounding the arena and pulverizes the ground into a denser state so quickly that it becomes white hot, of which Tari then uses her alchemy to make cool, revealing a fairly reflective surface.-
-again taking note of Tari's movements, Virgo anticipates the explosion with unity and uses the awakened form of the art of acceleration to immediately "decelerate" the explosion, converting the kinetic energy of the explosion into potential energy before any damage of note can be done to the surrounding area-
I know your magic now. -Tari then reaches out at Virgo, and suddenly Virgo is surged with mana from the entire arena, flooding his circuits and overriding the structure of his own magic by attacking it at the base layer and working up, disassembling any counter resistance to the override of his mana. As a measure to make sure that the current effect cannot be forced on to herself, the mana surging into Virgo is merely the mana manipulated in the surroundings through the use of isolated receptors and nodes connected to a store of mana inside Tari's gauntlets, which are locked away with a multi-compound structure circle etched into the wrist of each gauntlet.- This is thanks to your use of magic just now. It opened the receptors to your stores and circuits. Also don't try to alter your own base mana signature to resist. The mana surging into you adapts in real time thanks to a specialized structure that possess a randomizor encryption designed to lock into each resisting surge and neutralize it on the spot and further memorize your unique mana structure found in your core. [Short Circuit] -Virgo is then suddenly hit with an extreme mana overload within his circuits, taking the appearance of an electrical short out as mana lightning electrocutes the biology that allows him to access and process mana while also partially overloading his nervous system with powerful electric pulses, damaging his ability to recover his mana processing biology.-
-as surrounding mana begins to enter Virgo, he instinctively uses his body as a conduit to bring forth mana from hell (now the afterlife) and release it from his body in continued overlapping waves of destruction. The overpowering waves of hell's mana consume and destroy the surging mana as it draws closer to Virgo while also destroying Virgo's immediate vicinity, destroying the ground around him-
-Immediately upon seeing the use of his Hell Mana, Tari begins to analyze the structure of it.- Wonderful. Simply wonderful. The more you use, the more of an advantage I gain. I may not be able to cast it myself, but I still learn. -Within mere seconds, Tari completely memorizes the structure of the Hell Mana and writes it into the surging mana being consumed by it, reversing the consumption and breaking down Virgo's resistance.-
-Virgo's resistance maintains itself as Tari notes that the structure of his mana resistance is ever changing to such an incomprehensible and rapid degrees that she simply cannot keep up, only able to trace fragments before the structure of it becomes something completely different. This coming as a result of the chaotic nature of Virgos magic as well as the numerous mana taps he draws influence from. The resultant phenomenon being something so corrupt that it cannot even be considered magic-
Amazing. This structure and adaptability to attacking code is truly amazing. But I don't have the time to develop a proper counter. Far too complex for a simple viewing. -takes out Excalibur and charges it before then randomly tossing it up into the air, and then drawing two Lucifer blades made of Valyrian. At the same time Tari draws in all of her mana and then uses her alchemy to cool the temp back down to a level where ice crystals are present. Then she switches Passive Enhancement, Crimson Steel, and Focus Power to sustain off the mana in the surrounding area. She then, for the first time, converts her entire reserve into physical ability through Critical Over. Everything becomes heightened to the nth degree, and the sheer force of her just taking her stance fractures the entire battlefield. Tari's arms and thighs take a visibly thicker appearance.-
-with his passive secretion of IBM allowing him to "sense" oncoming danger, Virgo quickly uses the restricted variant of the phantom hex to "shift space" in such a manner whereby Tarianna completely misses him, following this Virgo casts two hex bolts, one directly below him and the other on the other side of the arena-
-Having witnessed his use of Hex Bolt before and aware of the need to gesture in order to channel it properly, the randomly Tossed Excalibur falls right in front of Virgo, between his arms. At the same time Tari vanishes in the field of Ice crystals and emerges from the reflection Excalibur, simultaneously grabbing the blade and cutting through Virgo with such force it cleaves the entire Colosseum in two, including the barrier, but miraculously injures no one as during Tari's flip down to cut him her twos swords she entered the Mirror World with appear right from behind her to then drive themselves at extreme speed and force through Virgo's body, while Tari then tosses Excalibur into the Mirror World and grabs on to the handles of the two blades and forces Virgo into the pit that once was the arena and pins him to the ground with with blades, their intricate construction neutralizing his ability to channel his mana as long as they remain impaled in his body.-
-his general shift in space manages to offset the landing of Excalibur just enough to the point where Tarianna's re-emergence puts enough distance between her and Virgo whereby his passive use of IBM is able to alert him to the dangers of Tarianna's initial Excalibur slash, allowing him to flicker above Tarianna in apprehension. With this, Virgo casts a hex bolt onto Tarianna's back, no longer being reliant on gestures (as stated on his page)-
-Due to her extremely quick flip from slashing down, Tari is able to catch Virgo just as he fires the Hex Bolt and neutralizes it with her gauntlets as they possess the same inherent structure as Lucifer to give her a close range advantage against close range magic users. She still tosses Excalibur into the Mirror World before blocking, and after which she then takes hold of her Valyrian Lucifers as they emerge from the ice crystals in the air. At the same time thanks to the speed and momentum Tari carries when she emerged from Excalibur, she hurls into the Arena wall and lands feet first before launching herself back at Virgo at the sub-light speeds she carried before.-
Why so slow? -Immediately when the spears fire at Tari she is surrounded by her other 98 Lucifers that knocking away and neutralizes the spears with incredible ease as she purposely chases Virgo around the Arena-
-uses forging again and brings about an array of spears behind himself that are all point at Tarianna, Virgo then uses the Phantom Hex to grab the air and the spears all come under the influence of Virgo's knight of vengeance, all growing exponentially in power and destructive capacity-
Virgo, let me ask you something first. Why have you been ignoring the massive abundance of ice crystals? Wait, lemme guess, is it because I wasn't using them when I really should have during out little race? Hm? Is it because you were so focused on keeping me occupied with our game of Cat and Mouse? Did you assume that I just forgot about them in a desperate attempt to catch you? Which is it?-floats off the ground still cautious of the marks engraved upon them.-
That's exactly what I want you to think. -Suddenly Virgo is overwhelmed with his own spear attacks the crystals behind him fire his spears into his back. This is possible due to Tari during the entire cat and mouse sequence opening the mirror world on one of her blades as to open the mirror world on each fragment, chasing virgo around specifically to avoid each and every fragment in the air. This means the spears had flown directly into the mirror world by flying at Tari, and even if they managed to destroy the doors, more were always present, including all 100 blades that surround her.-
-While the doors to the Mirror World are restricted, the construction of her swords surrounding her still neutralize the spears regardless of their power as they are constructed with the soul purpose of being entirely anti-magic and break down whatever makes contact with them. At the same time, Tari lands on the ground as her swords completely and utterly protect her from the spears.- Magic markings and circles only function when intact, no? To be honest, wouldn't such a bounded field, work so much better -starts copying the marking to memory.- For more localized use? -Tari places her hand on the ground.- Don't mind me, I like the heat~ -suddenly the entire arena is liquefied into magma through Tari's Alchemy.-
That would be true if the markings are what carried out the effects I guess -Virgo's eyes tint red and Tarinna feels an overwhelming piercing sensation on her hands are they're pinned to her own lava. In the meantime, a shadow starts to grow under virgo lifting him above the lava-
Hm. Interesting. -Is numb to the pain as a result of her constant regeneration experiments and simply tears her arm off her hand and regens. During this her gauntlet had moved off her hand due to a mechanic where the glove collapses into the wrist of the gauntlet. Curious as to what Virgo does next, she waits for his next action.-
-Taking a moment to think about why Virgo's eyes glowed, she comes to the conclusion that it was due to Mystic Eyes, and that the crushing sensation must be a result of this. As such, she decides to stand up and start walking (on air) towards Virgo despite the pressure, and keeps walking slowly towards him.- What? Are you scare of being close to me? If you won't come to me and fight me, I'll come to you instead.
-through sheer willpower and her extreme strength, Tari refuses to be stopped and continues to move forward, albeit a bit slower, and thanks to her Crimson Steel, the lava does no harm to her as she continues to move forward.-
-Salamander finishes up sweeping the lava in the area and Virgo sends it away, due to the nature of his Cursed Boundary Layer, Virgo further restricts the movements of Tarianna as her willpower is overcome by [All the World's Evil]. Virgo then goes onto materialize more spears with forging, keeping them pointed at Tarianna-
Impressive -using the awakened formed of acceleration, Virgo starts to "decelerate" the blood circulation of Tarianna, whilst "charging" the kinetic force of his mystic eyes resulting in the collapse of her skeletal structure despite the many endurance boosts she has-
I will not be defeated by a hypocritical, self-righteous bastard! -Activates her Mystic Eyes of Perception that take the appearance of a ludicrously complex combination circle derived from all of her magic powers, of which have not been active at all the entire fight. The visual effect of her eyes activating takes a bit, but the actual power takes effect instantly. This grants her perfect detail recognition, and due to the level of recognition time actually slows substantially from her perspective, allowing her to use the full extent of her reflexes and agility thanks to her ability to recognize any detail regardless how small they may be. Due to this level of detail recognition, Tari can now perceive mana as a physical entity, able to easily identify the streams and branches of mana stemming from Virgo that allow him to use his mystic eyes. She also recognizes the webbed structure of all the connected markings on the ground that activate his bounded field. She can also see every minute detail of Virgo's magic circuits as well the very structure of Virgo's DNA. Immediately Tari does the following: She unlocks the receptors of her gauntlets which immediately draw in all mana from the environment, completely sapping it dry with not a single bit left. Her regen is then amplified 100 fold, recovering all damage from Virgo's attack instantly. The sudden robbing of mana disrupts the mana signals meant to perform ranged spells like Virgo's Mystic Eyes, allowing Tari to then uses this mana to instantly assemble a code of such complexity and adaptability that it erases the signal from Virgo's eyes and draws a connection for Tari to Virgo, allowing Tari to immediately burn destruction alchemy transmutation circles on Virgo's eyes, and by using the connection present between the two, remotely activate the alchemy to make Virgo's eyes explode into blood. At the same time, Tari lets out a massive pulse of mana that entwines itself with the bounded field and copies the code, imitating its structure so acutely that it is nigh-impossible to detect, allowing the pulse to bury deep into the code of the bounded field and break it down immediately from the inside out, erasing all of the marking in the battlefield. A similar thing happens to Virgo as a surge of mana that is replicated to perfectly imitate his unique, personal code is fused with his magic circuits, granting Tari an even strong connection to him whil she herself blocks off all ability reverse the connection to herself. She then uses this connection to burn her newly developed and Virgo specific [Biology Destruction] circle into his body, upon which she immediately activates before any regen can take place, and in using her connection with him, combine this with [Short Circuit] to simultaneous destroy his biology and also fry his mana processing biology. His legs and arms are completely neutralized and destroyed, torn from his body as a torrent of mana lightning fries his circuit network and electrocutes his nervous system. At which moment Tari then launches of the ground with extreme speed and force, grabs Virgo's face, and bolts straight into the arena wall at 99% the speed of light while also impaling his body against the wall with 10 Lucifers, neutralizing any attempt to restore himself through his mana. At the same time though, as Tari holds him, the gauntlets use their receptors to rob Virgo of the mana present in his body.-
-With his passive secretion of IBM allowing Virgo to immediately become aware of Tarianna's gauntlets drawing in natural mana, he instantly activates Code Breaker as a reflex, which not only fill the void left by any disrupted mana singles but also breaks down the entirety of Virgo's reality to a scale never before witnessed by Virgo before, instinctively and without any time lost, Chaos destroys the gloves surrounding Virgo's hand which expose the true form of the Phantom Hex. Using the Phantom Hex, Virgo "grabs" all natural mana in the air and with Code Breakers ability to deconstruct reality, the Art of Chaos erases it from reality before Tarianna's gauntlets can suck a sizeable portion of it in, any connection Tarianna attempts to make to Virgo fails as Chaos continues to reek havoc on the surrounding reality without permission and without remorse, preventing any link from Tarianna to Virgo being established. Virgo uses Code Breaker to reinforce the main pillars of his CBL effectively stalemating Tarianna's attempt to deconstruct it, resulting in it's continued maintenance.-
I refuse you. -While awed by the display of Virgo's awesome power, Tari was smart enough to have large portions of her mana stored in special reserves located in her gauntlets which restore a chunk of her reserve upon activation. Logically the bounded field and Virgo's mystic eyes have been rendered ineffective and or erased entirely, freeing up Tari from both. Secondly, due to the fact that Phantom Hex is still technically magic despite its inherently impossibly complex nature, Tari can still easily understand and deconstruct what Phantom Hex is and does due to her Mystic Eyes granting Perfect Detail Recognition. Nothing is inherently too complex for her to see, as everything is traced from the root. Everything is for her to see. All structure. All detail. Reality itself is visible to her.-
-Virgo's mystic eyes were deactivated anyway when he awakened code breaker, he countered Tarianna's attempted deconstruction of his Cursed Boundary Layer by immediately "building up" what she "broke down", with a combination of Code Breaker and the Art of Acceleration, Chaos continues to wreak havoc, breaking down aspects of reality, causing distortions and warps in space that inevitably overwhelm Tarianna due to unfamiliarity with the consequences brought about by Chaos and the abilities of her Mystic Eyes-
-Regardless the effects of Chaos and Virgo's abilities, Tari can still see these details, clearer than before, her determination and will pushing her beyond her limits, her eyes beginning to bleed.- I hate it. I hate all of it. Preserving life here. Preserving life there. Protecting the value of Living. What Value? I don't see it. I can't see it. I don't understand how anything can hold value. I don't understand how you can see value in anything. I hate it. I hate it so much. Nothing has any meaning. Everything simply exists. That is all. Nothing more, nothing less. Everything is inherently worthless. -A dark and deathly aura begins to envelop Tari. Her determination exceeding whatever value her life might have. Her mana begins to restore extremely fast. Her life force fading.- I'll crush it. I'll crush ever last bit of your precious, meaningless value. Your morals are nothing. -her skin splits, blood pouring from her pores. Her muscles grow larger, circles of magic and alchemy burning, carving into the flesh of her hands. - I can see it. Your values. I can see them in your being. I'm going to destroy them. I will crush them to dust in my hands. I will tear them apart. -Tari's own body starts to give off the presence of an unmoving force of nature, the aura of her soul growing darker, life fading.-
-takes a deep sigh as Tarianna walks towards him, he manifests True Longinus in hand, a holy spear said to be the the most divine of all weapons in existence, a weapon capable of vanquishing the most powerful of devils and any beings perceived as darkness (Tarianna at this point in time)- Not sure where all this is coming from but with the way you're going it'd be best if we stopped this Tari.
-Reality begins to bend around her, its structure manipulated by her. A tangible object she can see and now touch. Her hands clench into fists, reality wrinkling as if she's gripping fabric. In an absolute instant, she appears directly in front of Virgo who is instantly in contact with her exponentially amplified fist, Reality folding in the pressure. During the moment she appears, the was no trace of movement, or even her existence. As if she skipped space entirely, or pulled Virgo's reality towards herself, with extreme momentum stacked onto the punch from her "skip". And just as quickly as she had appeared against Virgo, she had vanished, appearing a distance away behind Virgo, her dark and unforgiving presence stronger, life fading evermore.
-With Unity passively syncing Virgo with reality and Code Breaker constantly breaking it down, the distortions caused by Tarianna's "magic" have no affect on him and as a result he is still granted a precognitive sense of all of Tarianna's impending actions. Instead of meeting Virgo's face, Tarianna's fist collides with True Longinus, it's divinity tearing her body apart as she continues to make contact with it, resulting in a loss of limbs and potential permanent alterations to her physiology depending on the length of contact-
-Despite the destructive nature of the spear, Tari gabs the weapon, and using her momentum, still manages to strike Virgo into the earth. At the same time she rips Longinus from Virgo's hand and tosses it, despite taking significant damage in the process and pins him to the ground.- You still don't understand! WHY! WHY DO YOU VALUE THESE THINGS! HOW CAN YOU CARE ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAS NO DIRECT CONNECTION TO YOU!? WHY!? I WANT YOU TO TELL ME WHY!? NO MORE TRICKS! NO MORE MAGIC! I want you to beat it into me the very values you hold so dear! SAVE ME VIRGO! SAVE ME! -picks Virgo up and tosses him in front of her and she brings up her badly damaged hands as fists.- Show me how strong your resolve to those values are.
-Tarinaas finds herself unable to grab the weapon due to it's divine nature with her attempt to do so resulting in the annihilation of her limb. Virgo is only slightly nudged back as a result of the momentum of Tarianna's strike being largely mitigated by Longinus.- You don't get it, who am I to judge the value of anyone's life, that's not for me. What I care about is setting an example, in this world we live in; we can't afford to pave our way to victory with corpses, Gaia is coming and for humanity to survive we need a collective conscious... a unity. We need to show them the way, we need to become their angels, their heroes, everything they need us to be so when all is said an done we can stand together alive. Humanity cannot survive eating away at itself, therefore we need to become an ideal to strive towards. -unleashes a torrent of pure light at Tarinna that begins to eat away and vaporize the dark aura that surrounds her-
-Due to the fact that Tari's dress is made of Valyrian, Tari opens the Mirror World just as the torrent is unleashed upon her, and through this she is connected to all reflective objects in the area and disappears during the torrent of light, her dress all that remains, and appears a distance away with Excalibur. Already charged with extreme of amounts of mana, Tari swings at Virgo with Excalibur, but nothing is fired. She then tosses the sword aside and skips to several other swords, charging them with mana and swinging at Virgo, but still not firing anything off. She then deactivates her Mystic Eyes, making it impossible for her to use the Skip as she needs to be able to see reality as a physical entity in order to do so. This stops the life draining process, but is of no concern to her as she has restored sufficiently. She continues to circle Virgo, absorbing the mana stored in the blades that protected her whiles also swinging the blades at Virgo.-
-dissipates True Longinus and another shadow starts to grow around Virgo as he uses a combination of Code Breaker, Unity and his passive secretion of IBM to gain an understanding of what Tarianna is doing to his fullest capability-
I'm sure me running around and randomly swinging was enough of a distraction. Trying so hard make sense of what I was doing, you missed the crucial details. -Licks her fingers of blood as she then charges the sword with extreme mana again and then suddenly the mana is gone and she drops the blade.-
The finale is upon us, the fireworks ready for a display as tribute to the audience! -opens her arms wide holding a conducting wand made using Valyrian off of the blade she dropped and begins waving the wand to Symphony 9.-
-Starts using mana to vibrate the air in a way that produces the sounds which perfectly replicate Symphony #9. At the same time she tosses the conducting wand into the ground at Virgo's feet and picks up two swords and starts playing them like a violin and dancing around.-
Iunno, you tell me. -snaps fingers and in an instant, all of the mana fired into the mirror world by Tari on top of all the magic and power Virgo shot into it, is released out of the reflection on the blood from Tari that had landed on Virgo's clothes at Country+ level intensity-
-When Virgo said " You're too apprehensive.." earlier, he was not talking to Tarianna but Vengeance who had been sticking close to Virgo in the form of ever changing shadows as well as responsible for the burst of Astral Energy that knocked away Tarianna's wand. Acting independently of Virgo whilst maintaining its covert approach to dealing with Tarianna. Vengeance grew confused of Tarianna due to the fact that it could not "make sense of her". As a result of it's apprehension and confused nature, it decided to form a thin skin tight layer amped by the magic of Ira and Angra Mainyu in an attempt to not give away it's presence to Tari after Virgo asked it, "Are you worrying? Cause I'm not". When the concentrated release of energy occurs from the blood on Virgo's shirt, the protective layer formed by Vengeance acts as a measure of last resort, bearing the front of the attack and putting up a resistant front and creating enough of a time delay for Virgo's precognition granted to him by unity and code breaker to trigger a reflexive flicker out of his clothes and away from the released energy. With Code Breaker, breaking down the event that just occurs. Virgo also casts Vanta, an area of effect spell that casts Vanta black over the entire stage. Vantablack absorbs virtually all incident light (99.965%) rendering Tarianna's reflection useless for the time being.-
-Having activated her Mystic Eyes in anticipation for Virgo's next action upon her setting off yet another distraction, aka the explosion, At the moment Virgo has moved away and cast Vanta, Tari immediately "Skipped" to be right before Virgo, with Lucifer already deeply buried through Virgo's right shoulder and cutting down through to his left hip. The structure of the blade entirely neutralizes mana regardless of its structure and strength. Same holds true with magics, as while not being entirely existent as mana, are still driven by such and partly constructed with it to grant manipulative ability, thus meaning magic can be neutralized to a point of being ineffective. After cleaving through Virgo, Tari "Skips" again to behind Virgo.- I thought you were gonna try something. Thankfully my Mystic Eyes don't lie to me.
-Due to his actions being purely reflexive and the independent nature of Vengeance, the release of energy fails as a distraction with Virgo being fully aware of the situation at hand due to his Code Breaker + Unity combination. What does take him by surprise however is Lucifer coming down into his shoulder, the nature of the blade shatters the layer of protection Vengeance cast over Virgo but as it sinks into his into his torso Virgo instinctively shifts all of his body into Invisible Black Matter not allowing Tari to complete her cut. With her Mystic Eyes Tari detects an influx of IBM within Vanta as well as a black mist which masks itself among the absence of light-
-Thanks to her Mystic Eyes, Tari notices the exact moment Virgo begins to shift out of instinct, she immediately spins around to face Virgo, her left arm holding the blade drawing back as she then begins to launch at him. At that moment, Tari smiles as one of the 100 blades scattered among the arena plunges through Virgo's back. Tari also notices the influx of IBM in the Vanta, but due to uncertainty of what this may tell, Tari keeps her alert up.-
Hm. I see. -Tarianna Pauses and sits down with her legs crossed, mainly to allow herself some rest so that her natural reproduction of mana can pick up, but also to give herself an even greater awareness of the environment as she waits for the next action Virgo and the IBM takes.-
-Thanks to her Mystic Eyes, Tari is able to see the IBM as a solid mass, and quickly adjusts her magic to then forcefully grab it and pull it towards her. She then begins to crush the IBM in her hand by countering its corrosion effect with her own corrupted magic, increasing her break down capacity several fold. At the same time, Tari memorizes the details of the change in the IBM nature as to better understand it.- Something wrong, Virgo?
-Tarianna pulls in large portions the IBM and as she starts to "crush" it a gargantuan explosion occurs within her hand. The explosion occurs as a result of the "IBM" becoming charged by a phenomena similar to Virgo's Art of Acceleration, all this occurring before Tarianna can fully memorize the structure of IBM-
-Reconstructs the damage done to her hand and stands up.- Ah, so I can. That helps a lot. -Knowing that Virgo is probably on high alert, Tari uses her mana control to tightly conceal it within her body and lock away her own presence to the point it feeling as though she doesn't even exist, regardless if one can see her.- Alright. -Immediately she "Skips" right to where densest concentration of IBM is, and using her ability to touch all things given to her by the ability to see all things, using the momentum granted to her by skipping space, she plows her fist in the IBM mass, then grabs it full and skips to the arena wall, plowing the mass of IBM in the wall, and then bolting around the arena, dragging it against the wall before dragging it into the air, constructing a hand out of mana, taking a sword in hand, to then skip to the surface driving the sword simultaneously through the IBM by writing magic into the blade that allows it to cut Virgo's current state.-
-the moment Tarianna touches the IBM, a chain explosion triggers on a colossal scale, capably of wiping out entire countries due to how "charged" the IBM, the explosion occurs from every conceivable angle around Tarianna due to the fact that IBM and the black mist had filled Vanta in its entirety. Evidently Virgo does not exist as IBM and that IBM is merely present, his consciousness existing in a place Tarianna cannot determine, not that it would matter anyway, the scale of the explosion and the eroding nature of IBM would completely strip Tarianna of all physical defense as well as take catastrophic tolls on her physical body-
-Upon seeing the IBM begin the break down and explode, Tari immediately make an extremely dense barrier of mana shielding herself from the main blast. Logically due to the presence of the Vanta Black, she couldn't enter her mirror world. However the force force of the blast hurls Tari straight through the air and up, the blast being channeled upwards through a rupture now present in the barrier to prevent it shattering and exploding, preventing it from killing the audience. Tari his hurled high in the sky, her arms and body significantly burned and damaged as the explosion broke down the make shift barrier. As the explosion dies down, Tari's swords, also sent up by the explosion which is why the barrier broke, fall down with her. She immediately recollects herself and sacrifices a few more years of her life to restore the injuries sustained by the explosion. She then reactivates her mystic eyes, sacrificing more time of her life to then skip back to the arena, holding two swords in hand.- Heh. I should suspected something like that after the IBM I tried to crush destroyed my arm.
-the mist and IBM forms into the shape of Virgo and Virgo begins to speak through it- Tari... I can see what you're doing, why are you going so far for this? It's not worth the risk or the damage that you're doing to yourself in the long run, lets just call it a day and move on; I'm begging you.
You know I can't do that. -Tari slowly walks towards Virgo, dragging her blades on the ground.- I just need to complete the final piece, and everything'll be complete. -Tari uses one of the swords to reconstruct herself a new gauntlet for her right arm, the one blown away, and uses it at a physical replacement hand. At the same time, due the destruction of the barrier, Mana in the arena has been restored, allowing Tari to recover extremely quickly, in turn allowing her to maintain her Mystic Eyes. She then summons another sword to hand and continues to walk towards Virgo.-
Someone seems a bit on the cautious side. -twirls twice with her blades on the ground, further letting her mana restore to its maximum as she slowly approaches.- I can see the worry clearly. - Tari is of course, referring to Vengence, whom of which she has locked onto without giving hint of this before hand. This is thanks to her Mystic Eyes which grant Perfect Detail Recognition, allowing her to see presences, even if they are sealed away under the strongest of barriers.-
-the IBM-mist construction of Virgo sighs with Virgo getting tired of Tarianna's stubborn nature- Who's worried? -the construction of virgo disperses, as balls of IBM begin to clump together, a ring of IBM balls surrounds Tarianna, keeping her at it's centre as the mist begins run wild.-
Shhh, everything has a purpose. -positions her blades as a violin and bow.- [Holoscopion: Movement 64] -the moment she drags the bow blade against the violin blade, a Magic Alchemy circle encompassing the whole of the arena reveals it self, gradually having been carved in the arena throughout the entire match, and now completed, functions as a Combination of Biology Destruction and Short Circuit on a more powerful and much larger scale. Non-fatal, is incapacitates all magical entities and neutralize all current magic except for itself. Those who did not take necessary precautions before hand at fried with alchemy and mana lighting. Tari took measure early on by always having her nodes and receptors for mana always locked away unless she was restoring, and she neutralizes the alchemy by having special circles carved into her stockings, dress, and gauntlets, which absorb alchemical energy and neutralize its activation. In the event that Vengeance manages to fire off its dust beforehand, Tari opens the Mirror World preemptively due to Vanta not being present anymore.
-As Tarianna opens her mouth to speak, the mist and the dust enter into it, with more entering her body through every crevice and every hole. Her blood carries the two throughout her body as a result her muscles become restricted rendering her unable to draw her bow blade against her violin blade, through the manipulation of inorganic matter the mist alters the properties of the dust to have a similar structure to that of neurotransmitters. Due to the overwhelming influx of the dust and the mist, as well as the dusts new chemical structure, Tarianna experiences a "high" where her perception of reality is distorted to such an extreme extent that it effectively neutralizes the powers and abilities of her mystic eyes. The sedative nature of resultant phenomena of the dust alteration overwhelms her brain and knocks her out, as if she'd just overdosed on a superdrug. Following on from this, due to Tarianna letting the mist run rampant, it in turn had destroyed the foundations of alchemy that lied within the circle with it's inorganic matter manipulation, breaking down the in its entirety. With the dust in her blood acting as antigens, the foundations of Tarianna's altered biology are broken down completely nullifying her enhanced physiology and regenerative healing factor. Dust explosions occur within within all 4 of Tarianna's limbs destroying them and any material on them completely, the balls of IBM that surrounded her previously pile ontop of her acting magnetic in nature as they stick to her body, replacing the space which her limbs once occupied-
-Because her Mystic Eyes are still active when the dust tries to flood her when she's about to speak, it'd be impossible for Tari not to notice the sudden change in direction with the IBM and dust, thus allowing her all the time she needs to close up and "skip" away, though this has been taking a toll on her body due to repeated use. Because of the IBM's sudden attack, Tari is now aware that is what the IBM intends to do. This means Tari will not open her mouth to speak, as it would give the IBM the time to attack her again, and instead immediately positions for Holoscopion above and draws. Now on the subject of the Alchemical aspect of the circle being disrupted due to the manipulation of dust via the IBM mist, this is not actually a factor. While the circle is faintly present physically, Tari's stunts earlier had completed the circle via an implanted mana trace within the ground, allowing it to be maintained regardless of what happened above. Rather the physical circle was merely a visual aid before Tari had activated her Mystic Eyes the first time. This means that despite Virgo's efforts, the circle would have remained intact, leading us back to the effect of Holoscopion: Movement 64, as that is the catalyst in which activates the circle, Being so high in the air now, this gives her the time to activate Holoscopion without delay, activating the circle, in turn setting off the massive neutralizing effect that covers the arena.-
