The sudden pop as air returned around her once more caught Meara off guard, what had felt like hours had presumably only been a moment in time, the distorted perceptions of the world around her and that place between made her skin crawl as she thought about it any more than she wanted to. In effort to catch her bearings the young faun would begin to inspect her surroundings, climbing atop her staff to look around from the air, even the air about this place was peculiar with a taste to it all too foreign compared to that of Earth.
Even at the slightest glance one would be able to distinguish the planet of Konats from Earth, being her first time off planet everything was so fresh to Meara, it almost mesmerized her as she took the time to look around. "It's nothing like home, I wouldn't even know where to begin here.", she said to herself with thoughtful amusement as she lowered herself back to the ground. Without a map or sense of direction in mind the half demon would choose a direction and begin to move, keeping to the ground to inspect even the most insignificant thing she could find.

Resentment... yes... resentment... and anger... Those faces; all those nameless faces in the hundreds - the thousands. All of them, jeering. All of them, hissing. Those expressions of reproach, expressions of distrust, of contempt. Had he harmed them? No... it was his appearance... yes, they distrusted his appearance... They attacked him.
And now... for weeks, this sensation. This burning. It fueled his own resentment; his anger. Something had happened... or was it still happening? These dark energies... Deep in the bowels of a cavern, surrounded in pitch black, he was hunched over. He had been sleeping. Hibernating. And now, he was awakened - something was close. Something with energy similar to what had been needling at him. The journey back to the surface did not take long - for the memory of Majin Halluc was long and sharp indeed. He knew the way.
For the first time in a century, Majin Halluc stepped beyond the mouth of the cavern, and into the light. Heavy browed, and a seemingly permanent scowl on his long, narrow face gave the Majin a cruel demeanor. A towering eight and a half feet tall, thin, lanky limbs and a pallid grey skin and black eyes, the Majin was quite the sight. His body briefly glows a shimmering pink, and the Majin rockets towards the sky. He gazes around, and sees that something had indeed happened - something infected the lands with... demonic energy. Halluc too had become infected by whatever event had traumatized the land, and he felt something similar moving along the ground far below to the north east.
He wanted to know what it was. And take it's demonic energies for himself.
Halluc flew with reckless speed, until he finally found his quarry wandering amongst the ravaged forest. That was it - whatever this being was, it would soon surrender its dark energies to him. Majin Halluc took in a long, deep breath...
His voice reverberates like a concussive thunder, rolling across the sky, a bright pink aura shimmering about his grey form, blue cape whipping in the winds! Majin Halluc rockets down after the wandering creature, and thrusts his right fist forth! His lanky arm stretches unnaturally and at great speed towards the target, aiming to clobber the back of their head!
Majin Halluc has awakened - and he seeks the demonic powers within Meara!

Likely Meara's greatest weakness and sign of her inexperience beyond the simple teachings of her mom was the faun's lack of awareness for the world around her, the lesson to focus in on life energy was one there had been an effort to teach her but the half demon had never quite honed in on it. It was moments like this, in the wide open wilderness of a world she was all too unfamiliar with that this potential weakness truly reared its head, as she continued to walk along the alien landscape of Konats, still enthralled by the new world around her.
Then the echo shattered the quiet curiosity of the faun, completely shifting the tone of her surroundings. All sound seemed to stop in that moment short of that ear piercing sound and the half demon would recoil at the sound of it. It was unlike anything she had heard before and it made her skin crawl, in that moment she would try pull herself unto her staff to get a better view from above and look from the sky. But that was not to be as a sharp, unexpected pain shot through her side. Unlike anything she had felt before, being one to usually avoid such situations it would take a moment for the faun to rise to her feet and get a look around, but all was needed was a quick scan of her surroundings to witness the pulsating pink energy that resonated from... whatever that entity was, almost emaciated in appearance, it was like some creature from the books she read as a child.
"I don't know who or what you are...", Meara's voice sunk in, a more malicious tone than she had used in a long time as her eyes turned on her quarry. "But there is no way I'm letting you off with a warning for something so unprovoked." Atop her staff, Meara launched herself at the emaciated creature with a speed even she was surprised by. With a careful precision, the young witch would begin to shift the threads of magic about herself, a light pulsating from the gems on her staff and a sigil of dark green, almost black energy formed in the air before her.
Jumping off her staff as it rocketed towards her attacker, she would follow it with a the finalized spell. "Let Abbadon's maggots feast.", Meara spoke with a confidence as the sigil shattered, launching a torrent of writhing, white worms towards the creature, their teeth gnashing and bodies twitching in anticipation.

The extending arm and fist find their mark, hammering into the target with a satisfactory THRUMP!! However, the being proved to be quite resilient, and turns to face Majin Halluc as his arm retracts back to normal and he continues his flight towards them! He'd seen aliens like this one before - all with their conventional beauty, and disdain for his frowning features.
His foe met his charge, and used what the Majin recognized as magic to conjure wriggling worms. The first attack crashes into Halluc, causing his rubbery body to stretch and warp, and the worms slap onto his warped form soon after! Halluc bellows again in pain, but his body soon becomes enrapt with bolts of pink electricity, and his shouting ends. His warped form corrects itself, and he stares at Meara even as the worms attempt to leach on him.
His black and white eyes narrow, and the scowl becomes a malicious grin. Halluc's head tentacle flips forward, and zaps the worms! The creatures disappear in multiple bursts of smoke - replaced with what resembled the worms, but made of various candies! Smiling still, Majin Halluc breathes in deeply, sucking the candied worms into his mouth, and obnoxiously chewing them!
"I am Majin Halluc... you have dark energies... I want it..." Halluc says in a delayed response to Meara's words before her attack. "I want it..! I WANT IT!!!"
Halluc smiles, and cups his gloved hands together, pulling them back to his side. A sphere of bright pink energy begins to surge between the palms, growing as the seconds ticked by.
"That dark energy in your body... GIVE IT TO ME!!!" Halluc roars, and thrusts his hands forth! The sphere of pink ki becomes a thick beam of roiling energy, rushing forth like a river to strike at Meara!

For the briefest of, moments Meara was almost certain her small assault would do enough to get this creature to back down, enough that she could move on and not have to worry about it any longer. Unfortunately, this was not the case as an oncoming wave of pink energy erupted forth from the creature as it seemed what she had thrown at it was little more than a glancing blow. The oncoming current of energy gave the young witch little to no time to lament the outcome of the prior moment, she could feel the skin all over her body begin to creep inwards almost, an anticipation.
In that frantic moment Meara would call to her staff, the ashen length flying towards her in the seconds or less that she had to move. Grabbing the end of it as it flew by the young faun commanded it into the sky for her timing to barely be off as the energy consumed herself and the area around her. Almost blown from her purchase on the staff, Meara continued to pull herself atop it, her breath shallowed some as she wracked her mind for a solution... what was there that she could do?
The last onslaught had left her winded and she had no options, taking to the sky a few meters up the witch would begin to focus on the ley lines and attempt to draw power. With any luck she could muster what she would need before things became far too dire. "Demonic energy?", she would ask herself, she was certain she was no demon so what was this so called majin jabbering on about? It was a question she yet did not have the answer for.

The seething blast of energy does its work, blowing away the target and raining destruction upon the withered forest. For a moment, Majin Halluc frowns - he had not intended to destroy the person; no, that would mean he wouldn't be able to feast on her dark energies! But... perhaps he had put just a little too much oomph behind the blast.
But his concern was soon abated - the person stood amidst the burning woodlands, glaring back up at him. His eyes follow after Meara as she flew skywards, joining him high above the treeline. What she says, however, puzzles the Majin. Could she not feel the dark energies within herself - the dark energies permeating these very lands? She had obviously not been speaking to him, but Halluc responds all the same.
"Don't lie - you, like this place, hold darkness inside... And I shall feast and gorge upon your energies!" he bellows, once again drawing his hands back, and again gathering energy cupped between his hands! "Once I have consumed your darkness, I will begin feasting upon this world's demonic energies! It will all be mine to eat!"
He would make it right - they would see. They would all see, when the darkness of the universe was consumed, and evil hearts feasted upon!
"You WILL give me your darkness!!" Halluc bellows, once again thrusting his hands forth and unleashing the same blast at Meara!

Meara's eyes narrowed as the so called majin continued to prattle on, talking nonsense about some dark and demonic power. Not once since stepping on the planet had the faun felt even a hint of such an energy... unless what the creature was speaking of was something she did not have the training to grasp. Regardless the constant insistence on consumption and the so called demonic energy she had to do what she could to keep from whatever this had on its mind from coming true. Even at her fastest she could not completely evade the full force of its follow up attack, this time the force knocking her off the staff and plummeting to the ground below. Feeling the energy slowly coalesce within herself, she still had to bide her time and find the right moment to retaliate.
As she fell, Meara thought on the events to this point. What was it that this majin was talking about? She was taught that their magic came from the planet, not some demonic influence or force, was there more to it than she had been told in the past by her mother and those formerly about the village?

The blast once again connected, and the Majin narrows his eyes. This being had comes straight at him, weaving her magics - if what she had done before had been any indication, she should be very much on par with his own strength. He had been forced to raise his power briefly after feeling the strength of her attacks. But as the being fell from her staff and towards the gnarled trees, an old stirring in the back of Halluc's mind came like a gun shot.
Halluc's head tentacle whips forward, and a jagged line of pink magic shoots past Meara as she falls, and envelopes a boulder! With a burst of white smoke, the boulder disappears - replaced with some sort of greyish brown substance that undulates like a water balloon. Should Meara fall onto it, it would warp around her, halting her momentum and preventing her from taking harm from her fall!
Majin Halluc frowns, confused - was she just not fighting back now? Was she gathering power? He couldn't tell - and ages long past had made him forget why he had such a strange urge as to stop Meara's fall from causing her harm. But before he could really wonder about it, the lands around them pulse again with that dark energy - but perhaps only he felt it?
It made him hungry... made him feel ravenous! Again overcome by the desire to consume the dark energies he knew were within Meara - that had to be within her - Majin Halluc raises his hands high overhead, and begins hooting over and over, working himself up for the next round of combat to come!

"Is it all worth holding back so much Meara? You can't put on such a false face and tell me you don't remember any of what you were told so long ago.", a voice all too distinct from Meara's own slipped from the faun's lips in those brief moments as she plummeted to the ground, her mind still ever so clouded by the confusion this being had put in her mind. "But if you are going to keep running then I suppose it's time I cleaned up for you... again.", a hint of sadistic glee in this foreign voice as it mused over the situation. "At least this time she won't be there to stop me prematurely."
The crystals of Meara's now plummeting staff would erupt with a dark lightning as their once emerald green would shift to a hazy purple, the ashen rod falling to the extended hand of the faun before the same magic erupted around her, her hair dulling to a stark almost white hue and her cloven hooves taking a crimson colour to them. "If you want it so bad, come get it.", the voice emanating from Meara taunted once more before the final shockwave of dark magic erupted from around the young witch. Her cold gaze would level on the majin and her eyes narrow into thin slits.
Lifting one hand she would point to Halluc in command to the staff which once more would rocket towards the majin with a supernatural velocity. As the staff honed in on its target the faun would trace a familiar sigil once more into the air, the shape and size growing with each character drawn into the seal until she closed it. "Perhaps this time her puny magic won't hold back what Abaddon can boon.", as she spoke once more the writhing masses of alabaster skin and gnashing teeth launched from the cracking seal, a foreign magic beckoning them forth from places unknown.
Meara would watch with anticipation, a slight smirk crossing her lips as she awaited contact. "I do hope this body holds up only a moment longer, I never get to have any fun."

There was a pulse - the dark energies within his foe finally coming forth to the surface! A smile plays along the features of Halluc's narrow face. He could feel the darkness growing, strengthening Meara. He didn't hear what she may have been saying at this distance, but knew the time had come.
Halluc's body becomes bespeckled with small bolts of pink electricity as he raises his own power! He hoots three more times, and starts towards Meara - only to have the staff wreathed in the dark magics come hurtling to meet his charge! The staff hits Halluc dead in the chest, and tears through and out his back, leaving a gaping hole in his chest. Halluc looks down at the wound, and back up just in time to witness the jagged toothed worms swarming towards him!
They set upon the Majin - who seems to be shred to pieces! When the work of the worms is over, bits of grey matter litter the forest floor. For several long moments, it all seemed to be over - but the fleshy grey matter begins to move! One by one, the hundreds of shredded matter bits began to squirm, and flew towards a central point where they came together, forming a large mass of pulsing grey matter like clay! The grey matter undulates and pulses, eventually beginning to form a shape - and within four heart beats, Majin Halluc once more floated before Meara!
"...Hohahahaaa... that's it - there is the darkness..." he says aloud. "That darkness shall be mine to feast upon!"
For the third time, Majin Hullac brought his arms back into that all too familiar pose - and unleashes a wave of pink energy to crash into Meara!

To say disappointment crossed Meara's face as the results of this onslaught failed to bear fruit was an understatement, the faun's eyes narrowed nearly to slits as she glared at the Majin entity before her. Perhaps her assessment of the body's state and magic were more accurate than she had initially assumed. "At this rate I won't get to have any fun.", the sinister voice that had subsumed Meara's own lamented as she looked down at herself, all the while the creature that called itself Halluc was seamlessly recovering from the curse she twice now had attempted to force upon the creature.
Once more, almost as if the Majin felt no other tool was necessary, it pulled itself into the now all too familiar pose and begin to focus its energy. Perhaps from apathy or from confidence Meara chose to make her way towards the creature rather than move in effort to evade the blast once more. "Don't you get tired of the same trick over and over again?", Meara mused thoughtfully, her tone condescending as she continued her approach. Although, for a moment the witch tilted her head to the side and replied to herself, "I suppose I cannot speak on that... the limited abilities of Meara haven't left me with many other options either, have they?"
As the pink blast once more made its way towards the young faun she continued to walk, buffeting against it as she made her way towards her opponent with intent in her eyes.
Post by Majin Halluc on May 24, 2023 20:17:08 GMT -5
As was becoming a pattern, his blast connected against his foe. Meara seems to recover, and even speaks out to goad the Majin, who smiles knowingly at her.
"A trick that keeps working. That makes it strategy." Halluc replies with his gravelly voice. "Perhaps I don't need to do anything different - this seems to work just fine."
Still, she had a point. His skills indeed required expanding upon - but he DID have more power up his proverbial sleeve. But those skills took time to build up to. Time he doubted the creature before him cared to offer. But she was as winded as he had made himself; it was not easy to pull himself back together after being torn or blown to bits as he had been.
This person was strong - stronger than him for certain. So far, he'd been able to lean into her with his attacks as she made mistakes and over extended herself. But now, he presumed, she was ready to change her pattern of offense. Each time he'd taken advantage, he had first had to take a dangerous gamble. He'd gotten hit only a couple times now, and struck his foe several times more - but the damage was mounting, and he knew that taking the bigger hits was not going to keep paying off.
Majin Halluc smiles wider at Meara, and once again draws his hands to his side. There is a spark of pink light between his cupped palms - but suddenly, his head tentacle flips forward!
"I'll turn you into chocolate!" he bellows! A flash of pink magic zaps from the tip of his head tentacle, and the light arcs like lightning towards Meara!!

A wry grin crept across Meara's lips as she knew her words struck a chord with her opponent, as the fight went on the Majin seemed more perceptive than its initial seemingly mindless assault had led her to believe. This was a fact the witch was rather glad for, however, there would not have been nearly as much fun in a lack of banter between herself and this so called Halluc entity, and there was quite a lot to learn form this encounter, regardless of if the sleeping Meara really absorbed any of it after the fact when the more sadistic half once more went to sleep.
"A strategy, huh?", raising an eyebrow as she spoke Meara pondered the claims of the Majin. "But I would be more than entertained to see more.", the sinister voice emanating from Meara admitted with a degree of boredom to her tone. After a few feet the faun would stop walking towards Halluc and cock her head to the side, planting her staff in the ground beside herself and look the entity up and down, it truly was unlike anything else she had seen, it was almost unnerving really now that she got a good look at it.
While she was observing she would fail to realize what the entity was doing as the pink energy shot towards her, striking her square in the chest. "Oh what do we have he-", Meara would speak before her body shifted, taking the form of something else entirely. In this new, unbeknownst to her, candied form the half demon would ponder, "What kind of magic was that? If anything I feel lighter..."
Bobbing in the air, held aloft by her own dark power, she continued to look onwards, curious at the entity before her.
Post by Majin Halluc on May 24, 2023 23:58:09 GMT -5
Halluc's grin widens as his magic strikes true - she was indeed stronger, but her arrogance had led to taking the blast without attempting to avoid it! Curiously, though, the now chocolate bar in the shape of Meara remained floating in the air...
Somehow, she was even able to speak! The whole thing had taken Halluc aback - but the Majin recovers quickly. He had never in his few centuries of life seen a being still able to move, never mind speak, after having been transformed by his Transfiguration Beam! Was this a result of the delectable dark power within her, that enabled Meara to maintain some level of control?
Meara's words rang of confidence - leading Halluc to realize she hadn't yet understood what he had done to her. Well, she would understand that soon enough!
"You might just be," Halluc grins, stepping towards Meara with a hungry expression. "You dark power has been turned to something more... digestible. Dark Magic, Demonic Energies... Now Dark Chocolate!"
Halluc laughs, and bursts off the ground, flying fast at Meara! His gloved hands lash out at the being, intending to clamp onto Meara, even as his maw opens wide in preparation to chomp down on the transformed magical being!
Post by Meara Sealgai on May 25, 2023 0:51:24 GMT -5
It would take well over a moment for Meara to register what exactly Halluc had said to her, connecting the dots in her head. First the beam that struck her and now the odd sensation as to how she felt... had she been turned into something? Whether she had been actually turned into dark chocolate of all things she was not certain of and with as stiff as she felt she was uncertain if there was a way she could check. Regardless the approaching form of the Majin left even this more sadistic side of her the slightest bit anxious as to what his intentions were.
Being eaten was... not the first thing she assumed but based on what the Majin had said it was not entirely off the table. Closing her at this point metaphorical eyes she awaited the outcome of whatever it was that was about to happen to her. After a moment she would find herself surrounded by darkness and a material not too dissimilar to the appearance of Halluc... she could only make some general assumptions as to what this place was or where she was. With some concentration and focusing her energy about herself she would recollect her form and attempt to reach out to her staff, the sensation of it mysteriously distant.
