Halluc's hands clasped onto the floating chocolate Meara, and he swallowed the transfigured being whole! Halluc smiles and closes his eyes, and his body began to attempt to draw on Meara's dark energies. He needed to keep her alive, at least as long as it took to consume the darkness he felt within her.
"Ahhh... much better than the candy worms." Halluc hums to himself. The Majin looks around the twisted forest, at the gnarled trees and at the red clouded sky. Evil energies permeated the entire region - and would serve as excellent food for him. As he started to walk away, something began to rumble in his stomach. And it started to hurt! "Urrrrghh.... Indigestion..."
As the pain rolled through him, Majin Halluc notices something starting to move on the ground - the staff of the person he'd just ate! For a moment, Halluc just stares as the staff began to move more, and then began to slide towards him!
"I don't think so, little snack..." Halluc says, and his body contorts. Halluc takes a deep breath, and spits out Meara! "This candy needs more time to cook... That's fine, I don't mind chocolate pudding instead!"
With that, Halluc straightens his posture, and begins building his own power!

It would take the faun some time to fully come to terms with her surroundings and to gather her bearings in this unusual location that she now found herself in. Though it did give her a story to tell at some point in the future, that she had been for lack of a better term eaten alive by another entity and lived to tell about it... for now. She would wrack her mind for a time on the best way to approach this situation as she doubted much of her form's normal capabilities would do much from the interior of this creature judging by the ineffectiveness on the outside... then it hit her!
"Oh Mother Moon, supplicant bearer of the silvery shine.", the young witch would begin to chant, moving her hands slowly to an unheard beat as she continued the incantation. "Bring to this young adherent the glorious radiance of your moon fire so she may reconcile her own dismays." Meara had only ever been told the variations of this chant once before, as a reminder that their protective Mother was always above, the faun only hoped Her spirit lingered in foreign satellites as well. Drawing a deep breath she would shout to what she presumed was the direction of the sky, "Grant this one in dire straits your luminous radiance, to smite upon her enemies!"

Majin Halluc looks at Meara - whom seemed to have regained her normal form after being spat back out - as she begins weaving her hands around, and muttering to herself at first. And it hit him - her power was growing again! Her voice grows in strength with her incantation, and Halluc grimaces - she was clearly preparing a powerful attack with her magic!
If it gathered too much strength, Halluc doubted he'd be able to really hold it back. It could even come close to destroying him!
"No... I don't think so... Not so soon after waking!" Majin Halluc bellows! He draws his hands back, cupping them at his right and begins gathering power as well! Pink light bathes the forest around them in its bright glow, and a sphere of energy crackles to life between the palms.
If he could do damage once, or even twice if possible - he might be able to weaken, or even stop the attack he knew he didn't have the power to defeat!
"I won't be defeated here, not by your magic - not without tasting the darkness that this land has to offer!" he bellows, his white-black eyes widening menacingly.
Majin Halluc thrusts his hands forth, and for the forth time, unleashes a stream of energy crackling towards Meara!

"Bless this one with condensed radiance.", Meara once more spoke to herself as her eyes seemed to gloss over in distraction. Her focus was completely on the energy that was building about herself as each ounce of it filled her further and further. The young fuan would cease her motions, body stiffening slightly and her movements becoming less and less precise as she began to take a matter of steps backwards, lifting a hand to call her staff once more to her side. After a moment the tool would respond, flying into Meara's hands and easing the witch of acting as a living medium for the power she was building.
The crystals on the end of the staff would shift to a silver colour just as the stream of pink energy struck the faun once more, causing her to stagger some but just failing from completely breaking her concentration. Purple and white fire would begin to wreath the length of her staff, a visual depiction of the force building inside the young witch and a sign as to what Mother Moon was granting her.

Majin Halluc has dealt over 150% damage to Meara - Candy Beam trait activates! Recovering 30%HP, and gaining 2KP and 2MP!
Halluc's blast hits the target - but they don't seem particularly phased by the attack?! Halluc frows as Meara continues her chant, taking her staff in hand and reaching for the sky. The Majin gazes skywards, but doesn't see anything yet through the crimson clouds hanging threateningly above them, and brings his eyes back down to Meara.
Whatever she was planning, he would need to be prepared to face it. But he wasn't certain he could take whatever this was head on. But the challenge was enticing!
"Alright, let's see what you have in mind, little snackling." Majin Halluc says, grinning broadly. Whatever this was, it would surely leave her exhausted! Halluc spreads his feet further apart, and pink bolts of electricity begin to dance along his slender frame. He would not only face whatever this was, he would punish this demon - for he knew from her energies deep within that this was indeed what this being was - and make them regret not just letting themself be consumed. It would have spared her the pain he was soon to inflict upon her.
"HOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHH!!!" Halluc bellows, the ground beneath his feet cracking like glass as his own energy surges in preparation for what he knew would be the greatest clash of power he'd ever experienced!

With a speed unmatched by her prior movements, Meara would throw her staff to the ground immediate before the Majin. The ashen rod still crackling with amaranthine flames and the crystals atop pulsing now a pale silver, its tip pointed towards the sky directly above the two of them. "May Your blessing find this soul.", the young witch's chant coming to a close as she shouted these words to teh heavens above and the energy about herself blinking out of existence. For all of a moment nothing would come of it as Meara drew in a slow, quiet breath and smiled towards Halluc.
With a sharp motion of her hand, descending from above a column of silver and violet flames would erupt in an immediate radius around Meara's staff. Tendrils of moon fire racing along the primary pillar in search of additional targets before receding once more into the phantasmagorical blaze. It would only last for that lingering instant before the flames would seemingly return to the heavens above. With a slow sigh and narrowed eyes, Meara's hand would reach forwards once more to call her staff to her. "Your blessings upon us, Mother Moon.", the half demon would utter with a sincere smile as her own energies levelled after the onslaught.

The staff was thrown, and sticks into the ground before Majin Halluc's feet. He looks at it, expectantly, and then brings his eyes skywards as Meara completes her chant! But Halluc had not been idle either!
With a mighty roar, a massive dome of pink energy explodes around Halluc at the same instant that Meara's blast began its descent from the sky! Halluc raises his arms high, and the pink dome surges towards Meara's attack, the two blasts colliding in a great, thundering BOOM!!
Halluc grits his teeth, and pushes with all his power and then some - but it just wasn't enough! Meara's blast eventually presses Halluc's own blast back, and the blast falling from the sky envelopes Halluc in a blinding flash! Halluc thunders as the blast washes over him, and he disappears from sight, leaving only a smoking crater where the Majin had just been standing.
For a long several heartbeats, nothing stirs. Bits and pieces of Majin Halluc litter the battlegrounds - and seem inactive... Until they inevitably begin to wriggle! As with before, the bits undulate and slither along the ground, some even taking flight as they coalesce towards a single point. Soon, Majin Halluc stands before Meara once more, glaring at her.
"That was a lot, little snackling... you almost had me... But not today. No, not today." Halluc grins maliciously. Halluc straightens his posture, and starts towards Meara with an intentionally slow gait.
Majin Halluc clashes against Meara's Sparking with Heavy Sparking Attack Technique || I'll Destroy you all!!

Moon Dance (204,456) vs I'll Destroy you all!! (105,600) -- Moon Dance wins! Damage was reduced to 48% (98,856), but due to the rules of attack clashing, Moon Dance's bleedthrough is a full 50%, dealing 102,228 damage, 106% (rounded down from 106.4) to Halluc!
Disappointment activates! Because Meara took less than 20% damage (a fat 0 damage haha), Halluc recovers half of the KP used to launch the attack, recovering 3KP!

"Why...", Meara began to speak as she saw the aftermath or her onslaught... or really the lack there of, as the Majin reformed itself as the column of amaranthine moon fire dissipated. "Won't you...", her words riding in pitch as frustration built in the young witch, this fight had gone on far longer than she had hoped for and she was really running out of patience and ideas with each passing minute. "Just stay down?!", a slight shrillness overtook Meara's voice with these last words as the staff once more returned to her and she began to steady herself once more.
Her eyes narrowed and she would take a defensive stance, ashen rod between her and her attacker as she anticipated more mayhem form this Halluc entity. "I'm really, really.... really at my wits end here.", the faun speak to herself as she continued to steady her breathing, the recovery from such a large channel of mana being something her body was far from accustomed to. She once more was going to have to hope that this creature would keep its current pace so she could gather herself enough for one or two more outbursts of energy, but in her current state she knew things really were not in her favour and if it kept it this would continue being the case.
With a slow, steady step, she would pace cautiously around the Majin, keeping a distance as she started to trace a circle around its position.

The being was starting to show... was that fear he smelled from her?
"Stay down? No... no staying down. You can't kill me." Majin Halluc says, his grin widening hungrily. "Never stay down - never die. I am immortal. You can tear me apart all you like, I will never stay down, not when there are things so steeped in dark energies for me to eat!"
Not technically true - but in truth, Halluc was about as close as any being could get to true immortality. Nothing, not even a planet exploding, could kill him. Not unless every single cell of his being was utterly obliterated. She began a slow arcing pace around Halluc as he even more slowly drew closer.
"No running - not enough speed. Not enough time - I have smelled your darkness; I will always find you. Once I have a scent, I never forget it." Halluc says icily, turning to match her arcing movement. "It's time now... time to cook!"
With that said, Halluc suddenly explodes into action, hurtling towards Meara with reckless abandon, and eliciting a manic screeching cackle as he flies at her! He aims a kick at her left hip, and a much faster punch at the end of an extending arm!

"Oh?", there was a lot in this moment for Meara to be truly cautious of as frustration continued to mount inside of her mind. Her subconscious screamed at her to create distance, to assure some semblance of safety by not being within proximity of this creature... this Majin. And yet the half demon's blood boiled, like some predatory instinct of a prowling beast eager to maintain its territory. It was a sensation even this sunken, hidden aspect of the faun's self had never truly experienced, but it was hard for her to try and admit she did not like it, it was almost as if she yearned to indulge it.
"In that case...", the young witch grinned as she spoke, lifting her staff before herself and pointing it towards Halluc. "You won't mind if I keep tearing at that flesh, little by little. You're not the only one who wants to consume." Meara's eyes flashed with animalistic intent with these words. First with slow steps and then building her pace, the faun would start to encroach towards her quarry. Keeping a distance as she sought an opening, the predatory instinct told her to bide her time and strike when it would be more opportune.

The darkness was beginning to seep from Meara now, further feeding into Majin Halluc's hunger - a hunger that Majin Halluc decided would be best left unsated. He grins at Meara, and stands tall, reaching his full eight and a half feet in height to tower menacingly.
"Both hunger... good... both hunger longer." Majin Halluc says, "This snackling will taste better, I think, if the Darkness is allowed to grow..."
Majin Halluc rises off the ground, his wide smile reaching practically from ear to ear.
"There is much darkness to feast on here... Much to enjoy. But you... You will be a treat for later." he says, turning away from Meara. In truth, Halluc was exhausted - after a century in hibernation, his body was still waking up. The battle had been good for helping him limber up, however the fact remained - he was overmatched. Not terribly, no, but after that blast Meara had unleashed, Halluc knew that now was not the time for this confrontation. "You will get to live today, but we will meet again. I have your scent. Look forward to it..."
Halluc suddenly blasts away over the treetops, leaving Meara behind as quickly as he had approached her not that long ago. Oh yes - they would meet again...
Majin Halluc has chosen to retreat! This was a fun experiment! EXIT!

Blinded by her intent, Meara would not immediately register what the Majin had to say and would launch herself in Halluc's direction. Seeing her quarry begin to flee finally snapped the faun out of the intense moment as she came to s screeching stop beneath the twisted, alien trees of this peculiar planet. She would take a slow breath as the energy about herself dissipated and the haze around her mind began to clear some. "What... what happened?", Meara asked, looking about herself with a slight frown. Uncertainty clouding her mind and her attacker nowhere in sight, the young witch began sifting through her belongings to ensure she had brought the capsule with her shuttle with her so she could return home.
Judging by the shadows about herself, she had been ut for a while, but that did very little to explain the damage around her... had there been fighting recently. With a shrug, Meara would rest herself atop her staff and jettison off into the sky, hoping some height would keep others from attempting to harm her, at the least let her see any oncoming pursuers before they would become a problem. At this point the faun was tired and ready to go home.
