Ancient Crystal Temple

A long abandoned, run down temple. Once a thriving centre of worship in a large city, Time has reduced the surrounding area to ruins. Despite this and the outward appearance of the temple, the inside seems unaffected by time, a large glowing crystal floating in the air at it's centre.

Ary and Elyea appear outside the temple.
Who

Elyea takes in the scene before them, loosing a long whistle as she does so.

"Ritzy."
Metakirb

Where do you think we are?
Who

"Somewhere not as random as you think."
Metakirb

Huh?
Who

Elyea declines to answer, heading towards the temple door.
Metakirb

Ary follows her. The door being less of a door and more of an archway where a door once was.
Who

Elyea leans her head across the threshold, knocking on the arch with one hand.

"Anybody hooooome?!"
Metakirb

The only response Elyea will get is her own echo and the glow of the crystal floating above them.
Who

"Crystals....why did it have to be crystals? Come on, lets go look inside."

Elyea makes her way inside without waiting for a responce.
Metakirb

Maybe something to do with being the crystal guardian.

Ary follows, the crystal glowing slightly brighter as they draw closer.
Who

"You don't see me wearing black all the time."
Metakirb

Well there was that one year...

Ary smiles and laughs a little.
Who

Elyea shakes her head.

"Ugh, don't remind me."
Metakirb

Ary laughs some more.

The duo will find that other than the crystal, the temple is relatively boring and empty.
Who

"Well, only one thing to do."

Elyea begins to approach the crystal, walking upwards on an imaginary set of stairs.
Metakirb

It continues to glow brighter and brighter as she approaches
Who

Elyea frowns at the crystal as she approaches, her teeth become cracked and yellow as she spits out a few choice words of the Black Speech towards it. A shatter spell for those of you playing along at home.
Metakirb

The crystal remains in one piece as Elyea casts her spell, but it does seem to burst into life, firing a fast, thin beam at both Elyea and Ary.
Who

Elyea yells an obsenity as her imaginary stairs give out from under her, dropping herself under the laser but landing her in a pile on the ground.

"Ow..."
Metakirb

Ary's not so lucky, taking a crystal laser to the chest, knocking her off her feet and into her back. But also not moving her at all. Two Arys are now present in the temple.
Who

Elyea quickly sits up and shakes off her injury, looking at Ary and her latest doppelganger she rubs her eyes before looking again with a slightly off kilter smile.

"Hey...this is like that one dream."
Metakirb

Ow...

Ary pulls herself up from the ground, quickly noticing her new copy.

What? Another?

The new Ary turns around to face her, Ary very quickly notices the differences, Bright golden eyes, jagged teeth and a psychotic expression on her face.
Who

Elyea is quick to the side of her Ary, facing down the clone.

"Notice how this keeps happening?"
Metakirb

Elyea will find a bubble shaped barrier keeping her from both Arys.

This one's different...

Oh, so you noticed, did you?

The copy's voice sounds mostly like Ary's, but is also warped and distorted.

See, Elyea? I can understand things too.
Who

In that case Elyea walks straight in to the barrier.

"Oh come on! What are you even talking about?"
Metakirb

You know exactly what I'm talking about.

She turns back to Ary, who appears to be backing away from her, seemingly having worked out what's happening.

Oh, so we're even afraid of ourself now? Oh wait. That's nothing new. Infact, we find ourselves even scarier than spiders, don't we, little weapon girl.
Who

"You shut up! <SHAZAM!>"

A bolt of lightning streaks from the sky down on the barrier.
Metakirb

The lightning bolt will bounce off the barrier towards Elyea.

She can't help you this time. You can finally do something on your own.
Who

She howls in pain as the bolt hits, falling back to the ground. On the plus side she no longer has to wonder about what her lightning bolts feel like.
Metakirb

Get away from me... You're...

Admit it. You're the part of me you want to let wild. You want to kill and destroy!

SHUT UP!
Who

"Leave her alone!"
Metakirb

How can I hurt her? After all, we're the same.

No....
Who

Elyea scrambles up, trying to phase her way through the barrier with an utterance.
Metakirb

She'll find herself unable to phase through it. At the same time another beam fires at her.
Who

And as happened with Ary she's faced with a doppleganger, quickly distinguishing herself as her hair cascades down to the ground in a multitude of colours.

"Finally! Took long enough."
Metakirb

Perfect. Now we don't need to worry about her. Just ourself.

Shut up! You're not me! You're not a part of me!

The copy erupts into psychotic laughter.
Who

The dopplelyea ruefully shakes her head, pressing a hand against her temple.

"That's just embarrasing. Just gut her!"

Being one to lead by example she charges towards Elyea.
Metakirb

Rather than charging, Ary's copy simply removes the gauntlet on her left hand, causing the chaos substance it covers to burst into life, racing up her arm, trails of it reaching up to the left side of her face.

That's right. Deny me. Give me my own identity. Give me your power.

Her laughter resumes, growing more psychotic.
Who

<Sha-

Elyea is cut off from her utterance as her mouth disappears entirely, this of course is rather disorientating for the poor girl, giving her duplicate a perfect opening to grab hold of her and hurl her against a wall.

"Might want to breath through your nose."
Metakirb

Ary's copy starts moving towards her, Ary herself backing away, eventually backing herself against the barrier.
Who

Is this the end for our hero?! And Ary?!

It would seem so as the Doppleylea stalks towards her prey, newly shifted claws ready to strike at her downed form!
Metakirb

Ary's so the hero.

Doppelyea will find something metal blocking her from her target. Quite a large, sharp metal object actually.
Who

She tries to force it out of the way, looking around for the source of her annoyance.
Metakirb

The metal holds in place. It's source being Orochi's sword, and Orochi holding it.

About time you showed yourself.
Who

The copy steps back from Elyea, shaking her head.

"Ugh. What do you want?"
Metakirb

We both know you don't need to ask that.
Who

"Fine, lets get this over with."

She swings a suddenly appearing bat at Orochi's head, it'll knock whatever it connects with across the room.
Metakirb

Orochi tries to block it with her sword, which is then ripped from her hands and sent across the hall.

Not bad...
Who

The double grins, showing off rows of jagged teeth, a sickening cracking sound accompanying something moving under her skin.

"I haven't got time for this. Either bring me your boss or leave. Now."
Metakirb

What makes you think I work for her? Your group and the guardians are as bad as each other.

She charges at the double.
Who

The double vaults in to the air, trying to leap clean over Orochi, a volley of razor sharp spines tearing out of her skin to launch at her.

"MY group? You are so far in over your head!"
Metakirb

Orochi jumps herself as The double does, aiming to slam into her.
Who

As they collide she attempts to latch on to her, her maw shifting and warping to a much larger size. All the better to take a bite out of her!
Metakirb

Orochi ttempts to slam her into the ground, and try and grab her lower jaw.
Who

When she grabs hold of her jaw Orochi will have to contend with the highly acidic saliva contained therein and Eris attempting to clamp down on the offending hand.
Metakirb

Orochi grits her teeth at the acid and tries to rip her lower jaw off before she can clamp down on her hand.
Who

The jaw snaps with a sickening wet crunch. Eris looses an ear-splitting howl of pain as she stumbles back, clutching her jaw.
Metakirb

Orochi moves back from her, droping the jaw and trying to shake the acid from her arm before it can do any serious damage.
Who

This will take some doing as the acid has something of an adhesive property to compliment its highly corrosive nature. Orochi's efforts are going to be further complicated as something attempts to grab her head from behind, hurling her towards Eris who his now sporting a new jaw and a viscious looking club.
Metakirb

A pair of wing sprout from Orochi's back, attempting to pull her up, and above Eris, if successful, her arm warps and shifts, trying to remove itself from the acid before reforming.
Who

She'll find flight rather difficult as an invisible force attempts to grab each of her wings and twist.
Metakirb

She yells in pain as her wings are twisted.
Who

"That's more like it! I can never get you lot to talk but atleast I can make you scream!"

Whatever force is holding her wings doesn't let up, attempting to tear them from her back.
Metakirb

You think that's a scream? It'll take a lot more to do some serious damage to me!

The wings fade away and she darts towards Eris, aiming to punch her really hard.
Who

"It's a start!"

Eris doesn't seem overly concerned, ignoring her momentum entirely and trying to grab her fist. Slamming her in to the ground if successful.
Metakirb

Orochi is slammed, it probably sounds much more painful than it is, as at the same time, the dome around the Arys is shattered, one of them sent flying through it.
Who

Eris doesn't really seem that concerned over what the two Aries are doing. Being far more interested in bringing her foot, now in the form of a large spike, down on Orochi's head.
Metakirb

Orochi rolls out of the way of the spike.

Eris might want to pay attention this time, as the disoriented Ary finds herself being kicked in Eris' direction at high speed.
Who

Orochi may be able to roll out of the way of one spike, but can she avoid SEVERAL?! The ground beneath and around her erupting with spikes.

Eris allows her attention to drift from her current fight to face the oncoming projectile, swinging her fist to meet it.
Who

Orochi may be able to roll out of the way of one spike, but can she avoid SEVERAL?! The ground beneath and around her erupting with spikes.

Eris allows her attention to drift from her current fight to face the oncoming projectile, swinging her fist to meet it.
Metakirb

Orochi attempts to push herself into the air before the spikes can do any serious damage to her, but she'll take a good number of minor injuries in the process.

Eris will find that her fist, and infant the entirety of her body will simply pass through the Ary, who lands near the spikes.
Who

The spikes rise up to follow her, becoming far more flexible and trying to wrap round her with a metallic hiss.
Metakirb

Orochi flies up and moves around to avoid the spikes.
Who

The spikes burst from the ground, a multiheaded serpent of blades jabbing each head towards her.
Metakirb

Orochi dodges around them, moving closer to the crystal.
Who

The strange beast continues to pursue her, with the Dopplelyea appearing in front of her.

"Yeah, you're not getting near that."
Metakirb

It's not me that needed to get near it. It's you.

Orochi grins and darts up and away from the crystal as it shatters shortly after Eris moves near it, sending razor sharp crystal shards flying in all directions.
Who

"That the best you can do?"

Eris laughs, becoming intangible as the crystal explodes.
Metakirb

Eris will find that intangibility doesn't seem to stop the crystals from hitting her as they fly outwards. The only person who won't need to worry about the shards is Elyea, Ary and Orochi both recoiling as they're pelted with crystals. The central light where the crystal used to be fades, revealing Rhias, floating in the air, her eyes closed.
Who

Eris shrieks as the crystals pierce her form, her in unintelligible babble making threatening to unhinge all those hear it as her mouth splinters into a terrifying lamprey like maw. Seeing Rhias she quickly composes herself.

"The plot thins...."
Metakirb

Rhias slowly floats down towards thr ground, stopping with one foot just slightly off the ground,

Indeed. For a spawn of chaos, predictability seems to follow in your wake. Perhaps you're more structured than you believe.
Who

"Careful there sweetie, that almost sounds like a personality trying to get through."
Metakirb

Very funny.

A pair f crystal wings unfold from Rhias' back.

Tell me. What are you planning to do after your little fight here?
Who

Eris grins, a crude pair of wings bursting out of her back in a mockery of Rhias's own.

"I'm stronger than I've ever been and I've got a brand new body. Whatever the hell I  like."
Metakirb

Stronger? I don't feel it. I think our little rivalry will end now.
Who

"Finally, something we agree on."

With that her facsmilie burst in to a vast array of karge spikes, all launching towards Rhias
Metakirb

A small crystal barrier will appear infront of each spike, every barrier matching the exact size of the spike it's trying to block,
Who

The spikes shatter on impact with the shields, this doesn't seem to phase Eris at all however as she attempts to vanish and reappear behind Rhias.
Metakirb

Rhias simply turns to face her.
Who

Eris grins, a truely bizzare sight given the current state of her maw.

"Now what would my little shell say....? Oh yeah <SHAZAM!>"

A clap of thunder rolls through the room followed by bright flash as a jagged bolt of lightning streaks towards Rhias.
Metakirb

Another crystal barrier appears in the way of the lightning.

And yet, your new body should be an exact copy of your "Shell". I doubt you could take much physical punishment.
Who

The room continues to be filled with dazzling flashes as the lightning arcs and bounces across the barrier trying to shatter it.

"You'd be surprised."
Metakirb

The barrier seems to appear and disappear as it's needed and not, remaining completely undamaged.
Who

The bolt continues to ping off of Rhias's shield, its bright flashes of light providing a constant distraction as Eris forms a large whirling mass of thorns on one arm in an attempt to breach the shield.
Metakirb

Rhias sidesteps the thorn punch and tries to slam a punch of her own into Eris' gut.
Who

Eris's mass becomes fluid, separating around Rhias blow.
Metakirb

Rhias tries to create and detonate a crystal to send shards into the liquid mass.
