    Amir had spent the early part of the fight observing his surroundings. Bodies of water made him nervous given his race's natural weakness to the element. That combined with his spirit's overall ineffectiveness in this type of environment made for quite the disadvantageous situation for him. Before he could finish plotting a way to overcome this setting though, Aisling was dragged away by some kind of eel. "Get her!" Amir roared as his comrade was dragged under. Before he could chase after her though, Wanda had made her move, only to be met by the ridiculous strength of Andrew's weapon. Amir was blown back a ways by the shockwave but had avoided the bulk of it thanks to Andrew. It was then that he saw his opening. The fire from the explosion, the lava pouring throughout the room, that was all the heat he'd ever need.

    The phoenix waded through the water as quickly as he could, making his way closer to the lava. He could already feel its glorious heat washing over him as his body began to dry and ignite across various portions. Once he'd gotten close enough, the phoenix's entire body went up in flames, quickly evaporating whatever water was around him. "My turn..." Amir charged forward, sliding past Esmend and Wanda as the two waged their inexplicably large scale physical battle. He took quick notice of Kenjuko charging towards him, quite possibly the worst thing it could have done. "Out of my way, dog!" he roared, removing his traveling cloak as he did. When the wolf lunged at him, Amir simply shifted his momentum to the side and threw the cloak around the beast, clothes lining it in the process. Not wasting any time in delivering a finishing blow, Amir continued his frontal charge, making a beeline towards Katie. "How about you choke on this!" In an instant Amir's flame covered arm shot towards Katie, releasing a violent pillar of fire towards the woman that would likely roast her alive if she didn't get out of the way.

    While Esmend held his ground, he was quickly distracted by the various sights and sounds of the battle around him. Bright lights, people shouting, a wading pool: it was all very entertaining. "Clang! Clang!" He was not paying attention when Wanda attacked him, and did not try to block her tank. The resulting blow made a much louder "clang," along with something of a "crunch" as it connected with his face.

    The dragon now had Esmend's attention. While the strike had left a crease in one of his shields, his head had resisted it completely. Instead, the tank now had a dent in its hull, an imprint of a slack-jaw smile. However, Esmend was not smiling any longer. "You bad! Go and die!" He shoved back at Wanda with his one spear and five shields, trying to get her out of his line of sight.

    As Aisling fluttered above the water she felt bullets speed by her and then heard Katie call out to her. Luckily for the Faerie, there was quite a bit of distance between the two women, limiting the effectiveness of the woman's fire. However, even with unreliable accuracy a few bullets pierced the Faerie's wings and arm, sending her falling back down into the water. Just as she came in contact with the water she cast 'Penumbra', the hand of Aisling's own shadow shot up and took hold of her before teleporting the Faerie across the room. Aisling emerged from a shadow several feet behind her team mates with blood streaming down her arm and her wings ripped. The pain was intense, causing her to wobble. The Faerie stood in the bloody water as she quickly restored herself to normal. Then without a sound, she protected her team with 'Inoculate'. Taking advantage of the large amount of water in the room, Aisling followed up with 'Treacherous Intent', discretely contaminating the water with the poisonous liquid. She kept the spell going, allowing for the poison to spread throughout the shallow pool, the Faerie planned to keep this up until she was forced to move. The toxic liquid being indistinguishable from water was slowly turning the pool into a death trap as well as a pseudo barrier for Aisling's team. With the eel woman darting around through the water, it would only be a matter of time before she'd succumb to the poison; and Lydia's fate would arrive faster if she came too close to the party where the concentration was the strongest. Aisling continued to release the poison into the water, watching her foes calmly.

    Wanda retaliated in full-force, swinging her tank as though it were a simple sword against Esmend's shields. His spear would do nothing against her hide and she knew that. The orc would be met with a face full of tank as a response for his attack.

    Amir charged beside Rosalyne and wound his flames onto Katie, who let out a look of glee as the fire spread over her body. "PHOENIX, BI***!!!!!!!!" She screamed with a raging splendor as she fired her bullets directly into Amir as he stood before her.

    Lydia meanwhile, began to yet again dumbly charge toward Aisling, and as she did, began to be affected by the poison. The strength of the spell immediately began taking its effect and soon the Eel lay dead in the water.

    Rosalyne, located nearby Katie, swung her sword at Amir as well. She could see that Katie was doing well, but figured she would try to help anyways.

    Kenjuko fought off the accursed cloak, snarling in a ridiculous fashion. Once it had bested its foe it charged instead toward Andrew to repeat a similar process as it had tried against Amir.

    Andrew came to just as Kenjuko turned her attention to him. Without even getting back up, he pointed his sword's hilt at the charging beast and released the blade right at Kenjuko made her lunge. The lava blade erupted from the hilt and collided head on with the poor animal, instantly roasting her.

    Amir cursed to himself as he watched Katie grow stronger from his flames. The phoenix immediately drew Andari, intending to use Katie's elemental weakness against her. That is until she pointed her machine gun at him. Amir struck the earth with the blade, causing a rock wall to shoot up in front of his target, thus shielding him from the bullets. What Amir hadn't accounted for though was Rosalyne's sword. The blade sliced across his backside, cutting through his spinal chord and crippling him from his chest down. The phoenix cried out as his momentum carried him into the stone wall he'd produced moments ago. "Aisling!! Heal!" he commanded to his friend, turning his attention towards Rosalyne only briefly. The phoenix's arm twitched, signalling that it was still functioning before Amir raised it up and launched another pillar of flame towards the woman.

    Again, Wanda's tank connected, this time lifting Esmend off of his feet. He was flung back to the door he had entered from, smacking against the wall with a wet slap and sliding to the floor. Rather than get up right away, the orc sat in the water, whimpering. While he didn't know there were bones in his body that could be broken, or organs that could be pulverized, he had eventually figured out that sharp things could cut people and hurt them. An edge of the armored vehicle had been dug into his face, leaving a slight split across his cheek. A drop of blood beaded up on the end of the scratch, rolled down his chin, and splashed into the wading pool.

    Esmend's whimper grew until it was a howl. "WHY! ARE! YOU! SO! MEAN! ?!" he screamed. He began having a temper-tantrum, convulsing violently and splashing the water with venom.

    Kenjuko was lovingly barbecued by Andrew's blade, roasting briefly before it fell into the water, dead.

    Seeing that the Phoenix was not dead, and still somehow attacked, Katie charged over before the dwarf to once again absorb the fire which Amir shot, her great speed allowed her to ignore most any hindrance the water would have posed, once she was lit alight again, Katie began approaching the phoenix, her rage at him distracting her from her other duties "YOU LITTLE MOTHER**C**** PUNK!" she screamed "WHEN A NICE DWARF COMES UP AND CRIPPLES YOU, YOU DO HER A FAVOR AND STAY DOWN!!!!!" She was now directly over Amir and kicking him, her gun pointed directly at him.

    Rosalyne stayed put, keeping vigilance over the scene.

    Wanda was surprised over how little the tank had fazed Esmend. She was amused by his call and approached the Orc, gliding over the water, ready for another swing at him.

    Back on his feet, Andrew immediately sprang to Esmend's defense. Unable to close the gap between them, he began to rapidly punch the air in front of him, creating bursts of heat that exploded upon contact with Wanda. The blasts would normally burn through a person's with relative easy, but Wanda's hide was able to resist it, partly. While still injured, they failed to fell her.

    With Amir in trouble, Aisling hurried to save her friend though Rosalyne would more than likely attempt to stop any efforts. Since Katie was still enraged and busy beating Amir, Aisling took the opportunity to take out the woman's more disciplined companion. The Faerie disappeared with the use of 'Charon' and teleported to Rosalyne's shadow. Immediately she followed up with 'Baleno Taglio', driving the blade-like burst of lightning into the Dwarf. The powerful strike would easily electrocute the woman.

    Aisling's lightning flew true and electrocuted the dwarf, frying her immediately with the water acting as a conducting agent.

    Katie, hearing the screams of her comrade, briefly turned around to see what was going on before silently shooting Amir in the head, killing the Phoenix before turning to Aisling. "Bring it on, Faerie!" She slapped her hands and gun against her fiery torso, indicating she was ready to fight, a demented grin on her face.

    The punches wounded Wanda and left the Dragon enraged. Quickly, she grabbed Esmend and, using her spirit, made him lighter to her grasp, she flew upwards with the Orc. While in midair, she threw the Orc upwards and as he began to fall she batted Esmend at Andrew using her tank as a baseball bat against the poor Orc. As Esmend flew, she flew quickly after him, ready to strike as soon as Esmend landed on Andrew.

    Andrew jumped to his left to avoid Esmend and Wanda as they crashed down upon him. He created a small explosion to help push him out of the way, slightly injuring him at the same time, though. He did not have time to mount much of a precision strike, so he just swung his hand as a "blade" towards Wanda to create a hasty heat-blade that cut across Wanda's right side, burning the flesh.

    Aisling stared calmly back at the Phoenix, waiting for her to shoot. Though to her surprise she didn't. Instead Katie taunted her, challenging her to make a move. Something didn't sit well with the Faerie about the way the Phoenix grinned at her, making her hesitant to attack. After a second look at Amir's body, Aisling shook the thoughts from her head, dismissing the woman as simply crazy. With her focus back on reviving her team mate, Aisling fired another electric spell, this time 'Dartle', aimed at Katie.

    Esmend crashed down near Andrew, his landing sending up a great spray that turned to steam along the path of the heat-blade. It only took the orc a couple seconds to right himself and remember where he was. As Wanda dealt with Andrew's attack, Esmend charged back in, bawling. He had lost a couple of his shields, but he flailed at the draconian bully with the weapons he had left, and tried to wrap her up with his free appendages.

    Wanda was immediately stricken through with the magma, singing off a large portion of her skin and cutting deep into her flesh. She let out a loud cry as she began to fall, she decided to make a risky move; she spread her wings and flew for Andrew's legs, blood trailing from her side onto the floor as she moved in to simply tackle the man and begin beating him to a pulp, only to also be taken by the Orc, who she began fending off leaving an opening for Andrew to strike again.


    Katie was met with Aisling's magic and immediately her spirit took place, the bolt charged its way through the Phoenix's body and exited her mouth, firing directly back onto the Faerie with a great ferocity, firing her machine gun as well as she madly attacked the healer.

    Andrew seized the moment Esmend had created for him. Andrew jumped forward and created a small explosion at his kick-off point to jettison himself faster. He raised his Raiken IV above his head and came down to plant it into Wanda's skull.

    The moment Wanda was slain, Adal jumped in and seized the corpse. After several seconds of focusing, he was able to gain complete control over the carbon in her body, extracting it in mass. He sprinted towards Katie with Wanda's remains, crossing the room in no more than a second. He flung the remnants of Wanda at Katie. They constricted around her body, growing ever tighter like a boa made of diamond.

    ((NOTE: I have seized control of Adal for expedience sake.))

    Katie's spirit took her by surprise but thanks to her earlier casting of 'Heracles', Aisling was was able to react quickly enough and dodge the attack with another casting of 'Penumbra'. The Faerie reappeared this time from Amir's shadow. She immediately used 'Beckon the Abyss' and 'Nocturnal', giving herself the ability to see in the newly created swarm of darkness. Seeing that Adal had gone on the offensive, Aisling took the opportunity to revive Amir.

    Jane grinned with malignant delight at the brutality with which the Terramancer dispatched the Phoenix. "I love the smell of cancer-blood fried against the walls." Giggling to herself, the woman landed on top of the water. Slowly, the bodies of Jane's puppets began to disappear and the Homunculus removed a remote control from her garb, pressing a button, the water began to flood out of the room via small vents in the sides of the hangar.

    "I want to feel your bones grinding inside of my stomach, pustule-filled grub****ers." Jane laughed more and began to seem unhinged. The Homunculus laughed and upon taking a breath, let out an enormous scream.

    Suddenly, a large amount of sound began to flood the minds of the party, blocking out any and all forms of hearing outside of the violent outburst which continued in their head.

    This message and others like it began repeating themselves to a deafening level for the party as Jane circled them and Began her new onslaught. With a quick cast of Hecate on herself, she began to turn her attention to the others. Silently, she cast Blasphemus on Aisling, with the intent of severely crippling the girls healing potential; Maenad on Esmend, and Fascination on Andrew, directing the young man in the direction of the Faerie healer.

    Jane continued to stalk silently about, her eyes focused uncompromisingly on the party.

    Esmend was happy when he saw Wanda disappear. It meant that the good guys had won. He wiped away his tears on a tattered sleeve and snorted. He saw that many of the other bad guys were gone or sleeping, and that made him happier.

    However, Jane's blaring message confused Esmend. The orc did not understand any of it, but he was not used to the static in his brain being so loud. He stood completely still, trying to listen to it, until Jane cast her curse.

    Unable to express the magnitude of his sudden anger in words, Esmend began screaming at the top of his lungs, pausing at irregular intervals to draw breath. He used one arm to punch himself in the face, and another two to bend his spear into a 90-degree angle, which he chucked across the room in Adal's very general direction. After a few seconds of unfocused spasms, he locked on to one person in particular, Amir. Perhaps it bothered Esmend that one of the good guys had been sleeping on the job, but that might be giving him too much credit. Whatever the motivation, Esmend was now dead-set on tearing the phoenix into tiny, unrecognizable pieces, making an incredibly squishy jigsaw puzzle. The orc swung his body violently in Amir's direction, not running at him so much as attacking the ground with his feet. He did not stop punching himself in the face.

    ((Amir counts as alive.))

    Adal, caught by surprise from the mental assault, decided it would be best to enter a defensive position until he could sort everything out. He vanished into air, which he did not realize until a dozen or so seconds later that he had made the right choice. Suddenly, out of the corner of his "eye," he saw Esmend's spear past through him. He normally would have made some witty remark about this quaint coincident, but he could barely construe a complete thought with such a cacophony echoing through his mind.

    Meanwhile, Andrew readied his blade to go on the assault. While dangerous to engage Jane head on, Andrew knew he was one of the only ones that could hurt her; Amir had lost much of his fire power in the loss of Brynhildr, Adal's powers did not really affect Jane's inorganic body, and Esmend was hardly offensive. Unfortunately, after less than two dozen sprinted steps, Andrew found himself unable to focus any of his spare attention on Jane anymore and instead turned around, completely absorbed in Aisling.

    Aisling having just brought Amir back to life was met by Jane's mental attack. Having just readjusted from the assault, she was startled by Esmend's screams and looked up- well she tried to look up. Bewildered, she found her head moving down to look at her feet. More attempts to look up just made her head move opposite until her chin was firmly pressed against her chest. As she went to look to her right, her head moved over to her left. She began to figure it out. Jane had cast a curse on her, or perhaps it was one of her spirits, whatever it was it made her move opposite of what she intended. She took a step back and realized her foot was moving forward. 'Damn it.' She stopped mid-stride with the intent of stepping forward so in effect she took a step backwards. Even after understanding how her affliction worked, she still attempted to move like she would naturally.

    Finally she looked down so she could now see Esmend approaching Amir in his confused rage. Jane had done something to him. The Faerie cast 'Viscus' on the Orc. However it didn't seem to do anything. She couldn't figure out what was wrong. Unless her affliction affected her spells as well. Though if everything had an opposite, why did nothing happen? "Amir, Jane's preventing me from healing him somehow. She did something to me too- I keep doing the opposite of what I want to." She called out to the Phoenix as a warning to deal with Esmend himself and as a way to let the rest of her team know to be careful because she was useless as a healer for the time being.

    Amir awoke to the thunderous stomping of Esmend. "The hell is that idiot doing now?" he groaned whilst slowly raising himself up. He'd died again. Seemed like he'd been doing a lot of that lately. "Crazy a** reincarnated phoenix," he commented whilst cracking his back. Before he could finish settling into life again Jane's violent assault on his senses began. "Would you shut the hell up!!" he roared, flinging a small stream of fire at the woman in the process. It was only then that the phoenix was finally able to process Esmend's behavior and Aisling's warning. "Oh good, I get idiot duty." Without another word Amir withdrew Andari from her sheath. "Sorry, but it looks like I'll have to use you a bit before I can fulfill my end of the bargain." Amir tapped the rusted blade against the ground, causing the earth in front of him to ripple. In the next instant a small wave shot towards Esmend. Amir knew better than to assume that anything could hurt the orc, thus he instead focused on disrupting his ally's footing. Amir's next course of action was to snatch remove Ichimori from Aisling's being before unsheathing the blade and planting it into the ground in front of her. At once the spherical shield generated around the faerie. "Stay there until the spell wears off. Try finding a way to bypass it if you can."

    "AAAAAAHHAAAAHHHHH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! RRRGHLBLRGRBLRGH!" Esmend was upended easily, and it took him long enough to recover that Amir could help Aisling out unhindered. Rather than try to stand up agian, The orc used a combination of rolling his body and dragging himself along with his arms, biting at whatever moved into view. He was still aimed at Amir, and now much closer. "MMMMMMRRRRGGH."

    Jane deftly dodged Amir's deadly deluge of flame, her attentive nature had provided her enough insight to know when to tank a move and when to dodge, and coming from a phoenix, a fire spirit was not something to be shrugged off as she may have done from a human. She now turned her attention to Amir as Adal had retreated to his wind form. Amir.. Amir was second only to Aisling in terms of those Jane hated in the room. For this, Jane determined, he was to suffer. Casting Sadism and Eternal Damnation on the man, followed by Cripple, forming rings around his legs and arms, which would shortly collapse inward and snap the Phoenixes limbs all at once.

    Jane maintained her relative distance from the party, making sure to keep her eyes opened for any signs of counter or Adal's reappearance, and ready to begin her tripwire assault once she had had her fill of magical torment.

    Amir once again tapped the end of Andari against the earth, causing it to ripple and launch Esmend backwards once more. "Enough!! Focus da** you!!" Amir cried in vain, hoping to break through to the idiot. This brief lapse in attention proved to be his undoing as Jane's spells took hold. The third spell had struck even before he realized the first two had been cast. Amir literally choked as he collapsed to the ground, unable to vocalize the degree of pain he felt at the moment. Why couldn't he black out? Surely he wasn't conditioned to the point that he could withstand this level of agony. He turned, looking down at his broken legs and arms. The slightest twitch was excruciating beyond words, nevermind the horrible throbbing sensation. "Aisling!! Help!!" he roared, hoping his ally had found some way around her own curse. Flames engulfed the phoenix as he attempted to overcome the pain by strengthening his own body. This proved to be counter intuitive however as the sudden bulging of his muscles only served to further agitate his wounds. Thus Amir continued to lie there utterly helpless.

    By now, Andrew had devised something resembling a plan, though kind of rudimentary given his impaired focus. If he couldn't take his eyes off Aisling, he would just have to place Aisling between himself and Jane. He ran around Aisling until his periphery vision caught Jane in the distance, soon eclipsed by Aisling. He knew this was risky, as Hou Ryu was still a bit incomplete, but he has no time to both. Someone had to go on the offensive and put Jane under pressure. He felt heat near Amir, who was just out of the corner of his eye. "I'm borrowing this!" Andrew said as he, from his slightly distant position, scooped up some of Amir's flames and threw them to where Jane should be. Meanwhile, as he was obscured a bit by Aisling, he crouched down and delivered an odd double punch. He angled his blows so they would curve around Aisling and join us somewhere behind her. The heatwaves synced together after passing by Aisling and then rocketed towards Jane, slightly undetected compared to the more flashy fire sprung from Amir's position. He hoped this would work, but he knew this was a shot in the dark since he couldn't really focus and aim at Jane herself. Adal, meanwhile, tried to come up with his own plan while he waited things out.

    Andrew's plan worked to an extent, the curved shot while aimed at the general area of Jane, was not precise enough to land an effective hit. Instead, the intense blast grazed the Homunculus's arm, instantly searing away a layer of false skin. Jane cried out briefly as she jumped away from the blasts. "YOU MOTHER****ER! GO RAPE SOME BABIES LIKE YOUR SHITEATING DAD!" Jane screamed, though it was unlikely of Andrew to hear her due to the continuing onslaught of her spirit, which would deafen them all unless they shouted, and would likely impede their ability to plan effectively. She needn't scream, as one of her stolen spirits began working immediately, regenerating the lost tissue just as Fortuneteller had done in her battles many years ago.

    Jane looked at Andrew, deciding he should be the one to receive the brunt of her punishment for his transgression. She cast Brainstorm on him, effectively destroying any form of mental reservation he would have about revealing plans, forcing him to speak whatever entered his mind. Following this, she cast Infatuation on the man, knowing his family history and having a sense of poetic symmetry with another person she had known in her past. Knowing that this man was unlike the other though, she decided to go straight for the assault, doing what she would have liked to have done toward the former man.

    Confident that these two would help to distract Andrew for a time, she briefly turned to the writhing Amir and spoke her next spell, hoping it to have a greater effect of knowing what would come next. "Helpless" she cast the spell on the Phoenix, making him truly pathetic in her eyes.

    Feeling safe for the time being, Jane began to take a renewed interest in the Raiken IV. She set about a plan in her head and let loose finger strands toward the blade, not hoping to wrest it from Andrew, as she knew the strands would not be strong enough for that, but hoping to find some hole in the hilt, and infiltrate it, wanting to jam and corrupt the mechanics inside of the hilt. The strands were small, as they were whenever Jane composed them, held strictly erect by Jane as they moved toward the weapon in Andrew's hand.

    The Faerie tried to heal the Phoenix again but to no luck. She stopped short as Andrew ran around her, not removing his eyes from her for a second. She guessed he was also dealing with his own spell, though she didn't receive any confirmation of this and was left to speculate. She tensed up as Andrew suddenly attacked though it was quickly revealed the attack was meant for Jane. Andrew had the right idea, Jane would only make things worse if they didn't counter attack soon.

    Aisling tried in vain to cast a lightning spell at Jane as her spirit deafened everyone in the room. If anyone near the Faerie had been able to hear her speak they would realize she wasn't speaking coherently- she was speaking backwards, however, to her she sounded as though she was speaking normally. This was the reason her spells had no effect; it was not a reverse relationship like she speculated. Unfortunately, this knowledge was still undiscovered by Aisling. Still rendered useless by the curse, she tried healing Amir yet again from Ichimori's protective spirit. Unable to hear herself she screamed "VITA!" Well that's what it sounded like to her at least. To those nearby heard "ATIV!", that is if they heard her at all. She turned to look at Andrew who was still fixated on her, but now there was something different about the way he stared at her. "thgir lla uoy erA? werdnA...?" She yelled loudly to hear herself speak. "esaelp su pleH! ladA!" Aisling had to figure out a way to get her magic back, she was completely defenseless. Ichimori's spirit would not save her from the powerful onslaughts Jane was capable of.

    Under Infatuate and Fascination, Andrew was charmed into falling madly in love with Aisling, the only person he could focus on. He stumbled forward, entering Ichimori's shield. Since Ichimori has been set up to stay active without any guidance other than the fact that Jane was the enemy, the sword did nothing to stop Andrew, who could potentially be a threat now. "A-aisling, I love!" Andrew said with resounding confidence, though with a hint of shyness. "You're so strong... You have a great physique, and, while you are a little bit young, I think you are still quite motherly in appearance..." he rambled, under the effect of Brainstorm. He laid his heart bare, despite his efforts throughout adolescence to suppress his sexuality. As much as he wished he was asexual, he had a defined sexuality, one warped by the lose of his family. In Aisling, he saw a bit of his mother, and that made her attractive to him. "PLEASE HAVE SEX WITH ME!" He screamed at Aisling, who of course would only hear some backwards gibberish. Nevertheless, with Andrew so close and loud, Aisling would at least hear Andrew. Meanwhile, with him now in Ichimori, Jane's tendrils, seeking Raiken IV, were repelled, though the barrier could easily be broken with any real exertion of force by the Never.

    "What in the world are you saying?" Aisling asked Andrew, unable to comprehend his words. She grew nervous as he advanced towards her, he had a puppy dog stare in his eye and was apparently no longer concerned with Jane. Aisling having a good amount of knowledge of magic thought it had to be some entropy spell or a combination of them. She was helpless it seemed, her magic gone and she lacked natural strength. She backed away from him, trying to figure out why he was talking incoherently as she repeatedly told him to stop and snap out of it. Under pressure as she found herself against the wall of the shield, trapped with the decision of choosing Jane or Andrew it all suddenly came to her. Curses. She recalled the Homunculus using curses, and even though Aisling rarely used them herself, she was familiar with them from years of studying. While she couldn't recall what the spell was exactly, she remembered various effects of different sadistic curses. This explained why Amir was still somehow conscious, why Esmend was going berserk, and why Andrew was...no, she was the one talking gibberish...she was hearing everything backwards. She still had access to her magic, she had just been saying them wrong. Still, just because now she finally figured out her affliction didn't mean she had completely conquered it. She had to stop, struggling to picture how spells would be pronounced backwards. Andrew was upon her now, trying to tear off her clothes. She ineffectively pushed back at him. "Y-f...yfirup!" Aisling erased the entropy spells from Andrew though Brainstorm remained. A thought quickly popped into her head though she wished she could carry it out as quickly as she thought it. "En..enyso..men- Enysomenm!" With her most beloved spell she gained access to her tenth ancestor of her father's side, a master of Healing and Light magics.

    With this she gained silent casting, nullifying Jane's curse on her and she quickly turned her attention to poor Amir and attempted to heal him though she was unaware he was trapped under 'Helpless'. The curse effectively prevented her from helping her ally to which he Faerie decided to go on the offensive before Jane could make things worse for everyone. She took aim at the woman and fired 'Divinus' at her.
