[ERROR] No.44548404 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

The roof of the building you're perched on creaks as you shift your weight to keep a better eye on Nytora. Her new power is scary. You can't believe you got fire breath and the ability to chase bird sin their own element, and she still somehow got something cooler out of her evolution. Sighing, you suppress the bad feelings. You don't want to turn into a green lizard.

The ground groans a bit as you land on it. The woman Nytora saved, who was slowly crawling away, flinches and backs up faster when you land in front of her in the dark alley. Nytora inspects her blade as she walks over to you, stepping carefully over the puddles of blood. She blinks at you expectantly.

YOU ARE NOW NYTORA
YOU ARE NOW A SHORT TIME AGO

You land softly and rise slowly, giving the humans around you time to notice you. The one in front of you, the human attacking the woman, notices quickly and recoils, tripping over his prey in his hurry.

It's incredibly unfair that you got the powers you did while Sunny gets to fly. She can probably do other cool stuff too. This sucks. These stupid salt smelling humans better make your murdering them fun.

You crane your neck around, letting one eye sweep over the humans around you. Their attention is thoroughly yours, and judging by their reactions the reptilian movement of your head is freaking them out. The wizards told you how some races have in built fears that are triggered by certain behaviors. Then they politely asked you to never smile at them in the human way again. Too many teeth. That reminds you, you open your mouth enough for them to catch a glimpse of your teeth and turn your head back so they all get a good view.

You should get started.

One of the humans behind you, apparently quicker on the uptake than the others, pulls steel. At the sound of metal clearing leather you start to turn around to face him before cutting off the movement. The crystal scales patterning your hide shine for a moment, and you see the light break off and move away in the direction you were going. Behind you metal rings out at as a weapon is stopped.

You decide to focus on the man retreating away from you. His gibbering sounds a lot like the stuff you hear from the wizards when they're working. You'd rather not get magic'd at.

A sailor to your left strikes out and you force the scales on your left arm to shine and form the light into the familiar shape of the sowrd in your right hand. With it you block and break away, your scales shining and releasing light as you do, and you leave the blade in your left hand behind.

Behind you the sound of fighting is beginning in earnest, but the runner is definitely chanting now. You hear his voice rise to a crescendo and leap up nto the wall as he finishes, an invisible wave of force passing through where you were standing.

The only complaint you have about your abilities, besides Sunny's being cooler, is the lack of ranged options before the stars or moon come out. Though, thinking about it does remind you of Sunny's gift. You slide a couple knives out of your bandolier and flick them at the wizard. He's too occupied evading to start another spell, but your range is bad and accuracy worse. As the blades reappear in their sconces you pull and throw them again, using your free hand to help you run along the wall long enough to pounce on him. Teeth find flesh and the man gurgles as you rip out his neck.

Rapid footsteps approach from behind you and your tail, not as nice as it was before evolving but still useful, sweeps the ground of the alley. Someone's feet catch on it and you hear them land heavily.

Oops, that was the female, trying to run away. You're going to pretend that didn't happen.

Beyond her you see that two of the sailors are either dead or bleeding out on the ground as the other three try to fight off a pair of wraith-like lizards in their midsts. A cloud of soft light filled with stars connected by a skeleton of faint lines fight the sailors almost as competently as you could. Their movements are not as good as yours, and two of the humans force the lizard shaped being away. It stumbles a couple steps then collapses when the last step places it firmly in the fading sunlight. The cloud of stars breaks up and flows down the alley to fuse with the other of its kin. Immediately the ghostly lizard form sharpens as the stars of its compatriot fall into place, and similarly it's movements sharpen too. The already struggling human is cut down quickly and the starry lizard turns to the two survivors.

They look ready to run. They're too far for knives.

You charge down the alley, if they get away it'll ruin your whole day. Halfway to them you juke and start running up the wall, a cloud of stars continuing on your original course. From here you can see the light of the lizard fighting the humans dim slightly, but it continues to hold its own. Then its partner joins it and the two of them begin to overwhelm the humans.

Detaching from the wall above the head you form a mirror to your normal sword in your off hand. The star lizards knock the weapons of the humans out of position to defend and your blades skewer them through the spot between their shoulder and neck. Your landing softened by the attack you spin on the spot, tearing the blades free and striking the humans on either side of you with the sword that had just been in their friend. The two look confused for a moment before their heads roll off the rest of their collapsing bodies.

To either side of you the star lizards begin to wink out, star by star, as you let them fade.

Well, that was easy.

Nytora heads inside to get the wizards, and a short time later the butler steps out pushing a cart. He places a... a curvy bucket with ad curvy handle attached to the side, in front of you, and starts filling it with an oversized teapot. Wait, is this a teabucket? Why does anyone own a teabucket?

"Apologies for the inconvenience, miss. The masters will be a while longer while they finish a couple experiments, and do a quick check on Miss Nytora," he tells you, looking supremely unflustered by the fact he's serving tea to a giant lizard. Maybe this happens more often than you think.

Oh lizard, if there are a lot more giant lizards out there you want to fight them. Wait, no. Mom thoughts. Bad thoughts. No picking fights.

You nod and the butler goes back inside. It's not like you've got anywhere to be. A couple minutes later the butler returns with an oversized plate bearing hilariously large teacakes.

While you're contemplating whether or not to try using the handle on the teabucket or just to stick your face in it a voice calls out down the street.

"Hold fiend! I will cleanse this city of your-"

You look in the direction of the yelling, hoping the fiend will be worth fighting and just see the guards dragging away a human in fancy clothes brandishing a rapier. They're covering his mouth and he appears quite upset. Doesn't really have the look of a fiend. You wonder who was doing all the yelling.

From the sounds in the tower the wizards will be out soon. The sounds are explosion sounds.

You spend a minute flexing one of your wing claws. The dexterity is nowhere near as good as your old one, but you think you are getting a better handle on them. Carefully you thread the fingers of one mitt through the bucket handle and lift it to sip it. Nearby onlookers, watching your struggle, applaud politely when you manage a sip. Oh, this tea is actually pretty good. It has a fruity flavor to it.

The tea cakes are of course consumed in their entirety before the wizards manage to get out of the tower. Your hunger remains a constant winnowing complaint in the back of your mind, and pit of your stomach. One that the tea cakes also fail to assuage. You suppose it was too much to hope for magic tea cakes.

Eventually the wizards manage to get their collective scat together and come out to meet you, Nytora in tow. Lumen and Rascal both stop and stare for a moment when they see you parked outside their tower, clearly incredulous.

You blithely wave a wingclaw and take another sip of tea. It is really quite good. You'll have to ask the butler what's in it. Speaking of the devil, he completes the train of people and pushes out another cart with a teaset. This time one sized for non-wyvernian lizards and humans. Once everyone is served the wizards immediately begin briefing you without asking what you actually came for.

They use a lot of magical terms you don't really follow, interspersed with fun buzzwords which you vaguely understand. Words like "temporal annihilation," "physical destabilization," and "utter destruction" keep getting thrown around without any meaningful explanation. Finally after a few minutes they notice your vacant stare and Lumen dumbs things down.

"We believe we've figured out how to make the anchor your sister needs," Lumen explains.

Rascal nods but then interjects.

"The problem, is that we don't have time. Give us a week, and we'll have something that should last her for years.

We aren't sure she has a week."

Nytora appears to be hearing this for the first time and wears a similar look of shock to you.

"Is she goings to just stop being alive or is the universe throwings monsters at her? We can eats monsters," you tell them.

"No it's... Hm," Rascal digs around in a pocket and pulls out a metal lump on a stick that looks like a chain that's also on a chain, "This was a watch earlier today. It got caught in one of the destabilizations and is now a block of unuseful distorted matter."

You have no idea what a watch is, but that thing does look fairly useless.

"Runs away?" Nytora asks in broken humanspeech. Apparently her listening comprehension is better than her speaking.

Lumen taps a lip and nods.

"Keeping from settling down in one place COULD help, but you'd have to move large distances quite quickly for the effect to work."

You open a wing.

He stares at it for a moment.

"Even alterations to basic locomotion? But-" He cuts himself off. "I'm sorry. Yes, that would work."

"For a while, maybe," Rascal grunts through his moustache, "But eventually the disruptions will start happening faster and closer together. You might not be able to got far enough fast enough."

"Other options?" you ask. "Make me the focus for a bit? Hide her someplace?"

Lumen shakes his head. "We'd been considering using you as a sort of anchor, but that was before we'd seen the extent of your changes. Considering how much the two of you have diverged, I can't say whether your quintessence is similar enough in the right ways not to risk any of a half dozen catastrophic occurences."

"Hiding her would work though," Rascal interrupts, though Lumen groans at his statement, "It would work! You just need a place where there are existing disruptions or where they've taken place, that would occlude her from the corrective impulses of the universe."

"Then why bother speculating?!" Rascal growls back at his colleague, "We clearly can't be sure we're right so just let her rot while time takes care of her."

The two begin arguing and the weird technical aspects of things start coming up again. They're quickly getting off subject.

"Would the hole counts?" you interrupt the arguing beard and moustache wizards, "The time guy was messings up everything there. Then I messeds with it. Ah! I could does the magic again to make this place like the hole!"

The wizards both take a step forward and shake their heads quickly before realizing something and taking several steps away.

"No need for that!"

"We forgot about the... hole. If you take her in there then the disruptions will likely slow down significantly!"

"Between your flight and the hole you can probably get her through a week if you're careful. We'll get started on the anchor," Lumen finishes.

"Ah," you nod, "Good. Though I haves one other problem."

The wizards stop in midstep to go back inside and look back at you.

"I am always hungry. If I'm fulls I'm hungry still. Always hungry," you explain.

They blink and think for a second.

"Well you are bigger, you might just need more f-" Lumen starts then stops when you glare at him like he just insulted your honorable ancestors. Mom is honorable at least, you're not sure about Dad.

"Or... I could do a quick diagonstic?" Rascal suggests.

You nod and the wizard walks over and looks you over. He casts a spell and mumbles.

"There's definitely a curse here. Just let me..."

He casts something else and you feel a slight pressure in your stomach. Then the pressure bounces back and slams into the wizard as a wave of energy. He rolls a bit and comes to a stop at Gerald the butler's feet. He's quickly helped up and appears largely uninjured.

"Uh, yes that's quite a curse. Did you do something that would make anyone rather powerful angry at you lately?"

"I killeds a god."

Even the butler appears shocked at that. For a minute the two wizards just sit there processing before Rascal speaks up again.

"Well, if that's true then it's probably something outside the level most people can intervene in. I'd suggest finding another god and getting them to take it off as a favor."

You start to ask how but are interrupted.

"A dungeon would work," Lumen says suddenly, "If you could skip the blessing and get a boon in the form of curse removal."

"Otherwise you'd be stuck finding a holy man with some clout," Rascal finishes.

You nod. You'll keep those things in mind. You're trying to think of anything else that you could ask when suddenly there's a weird twisting of light around a basket next to the tower and in its wake the basket is warped and fused with its contents. Fish by the smell.

"We'll get to work on the item for Nytora immediately, but we can't have her here while we do, she might break it."

"Please take her away," Rascal pleads. If the basket and watch are indicative Nytora is probably wrecking their stuff. "Is anyone else hungry?"

You didn't have anything else anyway.

In short order you've got Nytora and gotten out of town. You'd like to have hit up the adventurer's guild but you're not going to play games with your clone sister's health. Except maybe pirate games. Nytora rides on your back easily once you get to cruising along the beach and you nudge your course out far enough that if Milly is out on another training cruise with her new lizard crew you'll be able to spot her.

While you fly you discuss the stuff Nytora did at the wizard's place. Apparently she saw the weird "distortion" things but just assumed it was a wizard thing. You're pretty sure you'd have made the same assumption. Other than that apparently Rascal has what amounts to almost an army of damned walking metal things under the tower. In between tests that hurt way more than they had any right to, Rascal and Lumen apparently worked on opposite ends of the building. Bottom and top respectively. Lumen made a metal walker thing too, but Nytora doesn't know anything about it since she never had to help the wizards kill it, which happened a couple times with Rascal's stuff.

You're almost home before you spot Milly's ship a short way from shore. From this distance it looks like she's having a party or something.

On closer inspection Milly and her crew are being attacked by fishpeople. And not the kind you're friends with. The crew is embroiled in fierce fighting trying to repel boarders, with mixed success. It looks like whenever things start to turn around a trio of larger fishmen start interrupting whatever group is fighting to make sure the fishmen keep winning their offensive. The big ones are almost two thirds your size and the group of humans, mermaid, and mostly unevolved lizards are having trouble.

Nytora shifts on your back and you think she's divined your intentions as you angle down toward the ship. Her posture and weight are closer to what you felt when she got off earlier to deal with those sailors.

"Do a roll when you get close," she shouts over the wind from your dive.

You're not sure what that'll accomplish but you aim to please, so as you line up with the ship you do a long climbing roll over the ship before pulling out in a dive. It takes you a long few seconds to circle back but you can see Nytora and what looks like a half dozen of her star thingies landing on the ship. Just before you finish your curve and crash into the sea you see Nytora despine one of the large fishmen as she lands, allowing Milly to lead her human sailors against another.

In the water you immediately target a clump of fishmen trying to pull a lizard apart. His tail already floating free in the water, they're too distracted to see you coming. You remain slower in water than in the air, but you are still fast enough to keep up with a common fishman. The group you hit all take terrible damage as you lash out with tooth claw and tail on contact. Two of the fishy creeps die instantly as you disembowel them when they fail to get clear quickly.

Lizards that can't even swim well enough to get back on a ship really need to learn. You were murdering things in water in like the first week of your life. Granted the fishpeople are much quicker than the lizards in water, but lizards are superior in so many other areas, you have a hard time seeing how they could have this much difficulty.

You have started seeing how they have so much difficulty. Rather, not seeing is the problem. The sun started setting as you and Nytora arrived at the ship, and underwater night is almost well under way. Your internal light only seems to shine along your back and tail now so it's of limited use in an environment with the possibility of rapid vertical movement. The fishmen pick up on this quickly and you start having great difficulty catching up to or finding them. Ultimately you have to resort to tracking the distress calls of lizard crewmen to find the fishmen attacking them.

As you circle around again beneath the boat looking for something to fight the corpse of a large fishman crashes in next to you. It looks like the surface battle is going well at least. A light below the ship draws your attention and swimming closer to investigate you find a fishman with a long stick pointed at the ship. It's wearing more elaborate clothing than the other enemies down here, and the faint drain of mana around you tells you that it's gathering mana.

It flinches when you draw closer seemingly surprised at your presence, and it unleashes its gathered spell at you. A blast of compressed water streaks out of the staff in a line as wide as you are and sends you tumbling through the water. If that had been finished it might have punched a hole in the bottom of the ship.

As soon as the spell is released the magic fishjerk darts away into the gloom of the ocean.

The light in you flares as you try and push it further out. YOu add in the flame you make when you breathe it out. You add everything that you have to making it bright enough for you to see. Like a switch a fire starts in your chest and your glow begins to cover your whole form again, perhaps brighter than before you evolved. You can feel the sun, far away and already set. It doesn't do anything but you feel a bond to it as your glow pushes back the night around you.

WIth your senses returned you notice that more than a dozen fishmen are milling around within the range of your light. For a moment you wonder what they're looking for before they all suddenly turn in the water and rush you.

You only have to maim a dozen of them before they figure out that was stupid. Only four of those even died! The learning speed of these fish is scary, But you're incredibly strong claws are still quicker underwater than any other lizard and you move almost as well as the fishmen. You capitalize on their proximity though, and the ones who aren't fast enough in their retreat are brutalized. One or two give up and try to turn their weapons on you, but the flimsy spears and tridents can't even scratch your scales, much less penetrate.

It takes time but eventually you appear to have driven off the fishmen. The lizards nearby are either dead or no longer making distress calls. The occasional fishman that skirting your light's boundary... hasn't happened for a long while.

You rise to the surface of the water and start pushing lizards toward the ropes being dangled off the deck. One or two lizards try to climb just using their claws and they're immeidately thrown overboard by a loud mermaid's voice and told to swim to shore. They're not allowed on her boat anymore.

You are capable of taking a hint so you dive down again and get a head of speed up as you breach the surface this time. Momentum carries you onto the deck and you land on a pile of corpses. Weapons are brandished at your sudden appearance, the light you shed ensuring that proper attention is given to you, and you tiredly wave.

"Hey. I'm back," you pant. You're pretty sure no one was holding their breath about whether you would come on board or not, but it's probably good to say anyway.
