You quickly steel yourself and the blade slams into your neck with the sound of a hammer being struck by an anvil.Violet hesitates and you grasp the weapon out of the air as it bounces of your skin.Exhale.You spin the weapon as you pirouette, form coming naturally to you with the weapon that is - after all a part of you. Cutting down the clone looking to bring your polesaw to bear you send the Star Halberd back to your foe in one smooth movement, the hurled star aiming to cut her in half at the waist.She takes to the air, somersaulting and reaching out to recollect it as she flips.You turn again picking up your polesaw and bringing it to bear. The two of you clash chest to chest before leaping back to both of your max ranges and exchanging a flurry of blows. It is fraught and evenly matched but your powerful polesaw holds steady against her two halberds.Inhale.You step forward, pressuring her for the first time with superior strength. She tries to ensare your polesaw by reforming the star and twirling it like a barrier, but you hold on to the shaft with your left hand and step forward with a devestating right hook before she can rob you of the weapon.Sunshine fist energy surrounds you as you deliver the blow and Violet goes flying into the distance.Exhale.Inhale.Your zen form holds, but the polesaw reforms as your default saw. It takes almost a full minute, but you find Violet with your default saw as well. Waiting you on the other side of a small stream.You step into the discoloured amber light and inhale. BOSS FIGHT: VIOLET DEMON You give your saw some slack, letting it land amongst the fall leaves.She does the same, blood beginning to trail from her lips.You exhale.> Talk to her> Attack> Use Ability (What)> Change Form (what)> Write-In

>>948312>>948307>>948271You stars across at your opponent, both of you unmoving. Crimson gaze meeting crimson gaze - the silence stretches on for what seems like days. "Why do you want to fight me so badly?" You ask.She grins like a madwoman, showing teeth that have been cracked and chipped many times. "Because it's what we do! Think about it Purps." She spits your name, "We're good at one thing and one thing only, killing!" She spreads her arms wide as if looking to embrace you across the stream. "Why deny what we are, this place gave me your memories and they match mine!""Match yours how?""We only feel alive in a good fight! Back pressed to the wall or dealing death - we live for it! Even that pathetic girl before me was the same when she tasted blood." She snickers.> You met the me before you?> You're Wrong> Attack> Use Ability (What)> Change Form (what)> Write-In

"Yeah some rogue wizard hit me with a mindfucky spell." She scratches under her chin before smiling, "If your interested, I could share some juicy stuff... If you beat me." She licks her lips, "Because...." She begins sing songing, "Weeee had some childreeennnn."You step back at her revelation and upon seeing he ropening she launches across the streamin a spray of foam. Your saw comes up and clashes with hers, "What happened to them?" You beg as you attempt to wrap her in wire.She's evidently familiar with the technique and instead ducks under; standing on her wire and kicking her own saw behind her the saw trails down your back for a long shallow cut even as you regain footing on the opposite bank.The standoff continues; but Ciolet wags a finger after answering "I dunno what happened to 'em. I do know where they were - but anything else you wanna know requires a victory.""Fine." You growl.> Attack> Use Ability (What)> Change Form (what)> Write-In

Anon's you know all my kinks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEckK5-_SPcYou inhale.Stepping forward you swing your saw underhanded in a tight arc loosing it ahead of you to cleave her knees off. Violet goes high jumping into the air and spinning in an effort to claim your head, causing you both to pass each other.A razor whip forms in your hands and you flick your werist upwards, ensaring your foe in mid air - the whip goes taut; even as Violet's saw guns are forming she is yanked back towards you, ankle deep in water you cry out; "MINERVA'S LANTERN!" Steam begins to rise and form around you as purple fire radiates from your pores, but only for a second as Violet points her sawguns at you.

>>948568>>948566>>948545>>948542>>948541The impact of her landing sends dust across the clearing obstructing your vision. You go into dual saw and send them both into the dust, hoping to ensnare her or force her to dodge before she can begin unloading those sawguns.Violet is faster than you, but even she needs time to recover from that. You won't give her it, you dash in after your saws as they go taut, hoping that a well placed sunshine fist hook could put her down.Instead you look into a black mirror that you never wanted to see. A serrated plate fist is coming for your face.> No Sell> Dodge> Ability> Form> Write-In

>>948612>>948603>>948595>>948593>>948632>>948637You inhale.The fist collides with your jaw in a blow that sends shockwaves throught he forest. Trees tumble, a crater forms and at it's epicenter is you; you are unmoved. Your leg shakes slightly as you hold your position against the impressive force and weight of the monstrous form.Your sking begins to glow white gold, astral wings reform on your back and the diverted stream begins to glow silver. Red ad warmth returns to the clearing aorund you, the spring grass and fall leaves returning to their former glory - standing before you is rage. But you are a an immovable pillar of calm.Past the point of sanity or articulation; nonetheless Violet lets out a gurgling grunt of surprise.Your cheek bleeds down onto her fist while you simply glare into the red visor, understanding for the first time the primal terror that you inspired when in this form. This avatar of death that you have within you, this rabid animal you can become in moments of rage. Truly this is how Violet was percieved by you and everyone else who knew of her."Such a shame that you resort to the kind of animal I expected you to be. Disapointing, but not surprising." You say as you ram a glowing white fist into the thing's helmet.It steps back, before transferring it's weight into a series of straights that you meet with open palms. Mirroring each movement, the collateral damage is staggering as you are the rock before a tsunami.The sound of metal on flesh is gradually replaced by a new sound; that of force strikin a energy. akin to lightning striking a barrier, so much is the energy that Violet is putting out that your Zen form has become a sun, one that is burning brighter and hotter with every blow you block.With a sidestep you make your opening, throwing yourself forward with a barrage of blow that buffet your oppnent's body. You break armour with every strike, the plates reeling and rending with every fist; the beast of rage is driven back step by step as the energy you've absorbed with your parrying and blocking is returned with interest. A straight, a hook, a palm strike, a claw strike, a kick to the leg, a roudhouse, you have turned the tide with authority as the beast is unable to counter and blocking is against it's nature. Soon your foe's chestpiece has fallen to the ground in a hundred or more pieces and you rleent. Letting Violet stumble as you dance back; her chest is bare - clad only in the purple, blakc and red of the cuts bruises and wounds you inflicted. You can see the ragged breathing shaking her frame; her veins protrude as much as her nipples and you see sickneingly that both are sickly black and corrupt by whatever powers she wielded in her time in this world.You return to your stance and finally exhale a breath you didn't know you had held.> Try to rip off her helmet> Hold your ground, build up enrgy like before> Change Ability> Change Form> Write-In

>>948786>>948785>>948778>>948772>>948809VIolet steps forward and raises both her arms to pummel you into the dirt, conjuring images of a drop beam locking a door - you place one of your forearms horizontally above your head and block. Your upper body screams at the impact and something within you snaps, but you grit your teeth and ram you fingers up into VIolet's jaw.The two of you engage in a battle of endurance as your forearm competes with her armour, you begin screaming as she slowly crushes your wrist and she roars as you begin peeling back her helmet. It is long going, you see her chin reveal itself, then you see the bottom of her nose. You're glowing intensely now as you make the final push, You arm is shattered by her attack but by now you have enough energy to no sell the two fists slamming down on your head.You step forward and with one final shout you manage to push upwards and tear the metal from Violet's face. The sheer force of your final effort sends you into the air above her even as she falls back cackling hysterically.You raise your fist as you rise, preparing for your next strike. Violet lands on her back with a mechanic clang and you land a heartbeat later, fist first. The crater is dug even deeper by your landing and your zen energy explodes outwards from the devestating ground pound.Grass grows throughout the crater in fast forward fall being replaced by spring in an instant, flowers bud and creepers crawl upwards towards the sunlight. You look over your fallen foe, naked from the waist up save from her metal gauntlets and greaves. She is coughing up blood in high volumes; arms twitching involuntarily as you see her chest rise and fall begging for breath.She is broken but looks relaxed. Positively content, ecstatic or tranquil could also work.You inhaleExhale. > I don't feel alive> Tell me about my family> We don't have to be this way> Did you get what you wanted?> Write-In

>>948885>>948892>>948893>>948944You take a seat next to her on the freshly grown grass trying not to be too annoyed by the dew currently wetting your ass.You cycle your breathing a few more times, allowing your zen fade back to manageable levels, "Did you get what you wanted?" You ask simply.She laughs in a way that tells you her insides aren't in a good state, in fact gurgling might be a good word for it. "Hell yeah. One last go, was all I ever wanted. And I got to fight me? Who better to kill me than me eh?" She coughs and spurts up a solid black ball."Tell me about my family." You say simply, trying to ginore the rapidly deflating black filfth lying beside you."I don't know much. Just that they live somewhere called Murillo. Laurelai said we loved the food there." She wheezes, "Just chuck me back in the pond already.

>>955791>>955784>>955778"Why would I dump you in the pond?" You ask turning round to get your knees beneath you. "Well if you want me to actually die instead of do the whole corrupt you from the inside thing you should. And honestly, being your inner evil sounds annoying and cliche as hell." Violet says."Yeah the idea of being haunted by you does suck" You admit as you loop one of her arms above your shoulder to drag her back the way you came. Thankfully the massive impact from your punch earlier serves as both a crater and a road.You grunt in exertion as you begin hauling her back to the clearing the battle started, even with only the arms and legs that RAGE form is heavy, "Our old name was Laurelai then?""Oh yeah, she was like a kitten compared to us. If I hadn't been messing around I could have smeared that illusion onto the dirt. But like us when she came alive when back to the wall." She coughs and you feel a splatter on the side of your neck as more black corruption comes up, "Just like us." She murmurs, falling silent until the pool comes into view.> You're wrong about us> She's just the opposite extreme of you> At least she had a family> Write-In

>>955806> You're wrong about us>Feeling alive only when fighting.We're lacking in many things, like origins and emotions. I live as I breathe, things such as looking at a scenery with a friend also makes me alive. I'm sure you too have similar experiences.We're all different shades of purple trying to paint an old canvas, turn by turn, redoing all over again with each incarnation.Who's to say Laurelai wasn't closer to completion than us? Who's to say the shade of those before isn't influencing us in some ways?
>>955829Emotions fuel us. Those accessible to us expand our view of life, which then make us experience more feelings. Only one kind of perspective can only make us move on for so long.

>>955872>>955865>>955833>>955829>>955815>>955813"You are so wrong about us Violet." You say smiling a little, "We might lack a lot; including our origins and most feelings." You begin sturggling to navigate a boulder, before realizing you can both just walk up and over it. "Look at you, you lived as you wanted - in battle and I'm guessing by your comments in the bedroom.""Heh we're freaky what can we say." She replies before you cut her off-"1; I don't know what I'm into yet. 2; shut up." She pouts as you go on, "I live as I breathe. Sure I'm cold and distant a lot, but things like looking at scenery while Hona sang, playing cards while undercover and dancing in the festival of fire - they made me feel alive as much as fighting for my life." You say as you navigate the fallen and broken tree that once stood proudly over the pond of introspection. "You know what I think? We're all different shades of purple painting the same canvas, turn by turn, painting over each other's work every time." "Sounds like you're going to be some kind of introspective bitch." She says flashing you a red and black soaked grin. You think she's just holding on so you can do this properly."Maybe, but look at Laurelai. Maybe she was closer to being complete than us. Maybe there's something we're missing. We don't know - so I'm going to live my life with my friends and see where it leads." You say definitively, looking into an inverted gaze of your own.You're standing on the edge of the pond now, back to the tranquil perfection of this... Forest of Zen. The silver pond no longer rocks and heaves in your presence returned once again to it's still shining beauty."Looks like this is it huh Purps?" Violet says, standing to full height and standing to her full height. Turning to face you with arms spread wide, baring her chest to you and raising her chin.> This is it.

>>956200>>956182>>956177You open your arms and Violet smirks at you. You don't know why, but a hug seems appropriate for this moment.So imagine your surprise when your sent stumbling by a hook to the jaw. following the momentum around, you see Violet falling backwards into the pool with arms spread wide. You move forward as she's enveloped, the silver pond hungrily devouring her. Your last view of Violet is a slowly descending middle finger as she gets off her one last "Fuck You." You can't help but sagely smile as she goes.The little monkey robed creature runs toward you with it's stick trailing haphazardly behind it. "Oh you survived. Now if you could tell this animal that I would be most indebted!" He scrambles up and around your body to hide behind your back as your fox friend comes charging over in an apparent fury.You notice a bite mark missing from the bottom of your now passenger's robe.> Throw him at the fox> Attempt to be peacemaker> Ask why the spirit made you face Violet> Write-In

>>956835>>956772>>956671"Look, let's ignore this guy and get you to that Spire huh?" You say, judo flipping the robed guy onto the floor with a well placed roll of your shoulder.He tumbles to the ground and protest furiously. "Wait! Wait! You haven't answered the questions." "We shall walk and talk. Perhaps you should ask quickly, since that wall is pretty close." He says, you detect a hint of amusement."Fine, you. Fox what have you learned?""That the journey is as important as the destination. I should experience the world and enjoy it, company makes life worthwhile and that you taste like old dawnkrin." He finishes with snarkYou try not to grin, "It only took you twenty visits rodent."
