No can do. She cannot keep this up. Before she could feel the third poison, Izanamon quickly broke off the kekkai with her naginata, shattering it. The previous turn, she was not damaged, and in return, the Kekkai becomes a lot weaker. Even a Rookie attack would shatter it. Now, with the winds blowing, Izanamon quickly jumped up to dodges Ayaka's wind blades like she's climbing platforms, effectively dodging it thanks to her much more superior speed... however, it finally kicked. Her third poison. The queen of dead realm vomited a mouthful of blood to the ground below.
Her vision starting to blur, but it's not enough... really not enough. She have no time for this. She'll have to win this fight. Izanamon charged downward with a warcry, aiming her naginata at Ankh. She just have to harm him slightly. The next turn will be the decision of all of it! Izanamon finally did an axe-like movement. Ayaka's buff has left her body... soon, soon she'll probably drop dead.... but before, maybe she'll have to relieve that memory again...
How pitiful. But it was just right... She's already happy that she can meet her niece in her deathbed...
The combat was finally reaching it's climax, but apparently, Izanamon's power was seemingly ebbing away and her health was worsening. She began to fear for her condition; maybe she was pushing herself too far? As of now, she just couldn't bear to think that; even if she loved her family dearly, Mana was her top priority at the moment, even if she just wanted to stop fighting in the precise instant and just hug her aunt. Just a little more and she'd finally be able to be on friendly terms with her family. Maybe... she would even be able to bring her and her family back to the surface? She'd love to be able to play do ladylike things with her cousins.
Surrendering those thoughts for now, and leaving the radius of the kekkai as much as she could, she muttered her most potent incantation, targetting Ankh with it. He'd probably dodge the attack easily, and that'd mark the end of this fight. "Do not harm her" she said to the ex-birdman right away "Time is up, Oba-sama. Have we passed your test or not?".
She immediately approached her and tried to tend to her wounds. Even if Ankh was somewhat injured, family was family, even if they had been previously fighting, nothing could change that.

That old hag... looks like he had made the right move after all. She was weakened by her own poison. Not even her own poison she could sustain. But he felt bad for making the hag weak, especially after he shot down that mirror. However, the fight had turned into his and Ayaka's favor.
However, he didn't have time to lose. He must shifted his attention back to the battle, especially after Ayaka casted the spells on him, which again, raised his awareness, defense, and reflexes. Ankh then braced himself as the Izanamon attacked, and then, he moved aside from the attack just in time. With that Izanamon weakened, he didn't have to attack her anymore.
"I wonder... if she's alright." Ankh muttered. "Old hag! Damn, you just hurt yourself to win. I think I've met such crazy people before. You're willing to risk everything to achieve your goal, I see."
And so would Ankh. He would risk the freedom of guilty for ones of innocents. To form the world he desired with Hanahime... To sacrifice the rule of corruption in exchange of the better world. If you gain everything, you must give away something.
"Listen, old hag. You just give away your own well being just to defeat us. You're one heck of crazy old woman, I see. But know this. If we want to have something we must give away another. That's the natural rule. If I have to sacrifice something for the better world with Hanahime, I'd sacrifice my compassion. I don't care if people would hate me for the new rule we'll made, but as long as I have her, and to have the corruption purged from the entire world, I'll have no regrets." Ankh declared.
"You... failed," she judged. "...You failed to patch his wound fully which equates to you losing, Ayaka. As per our agreement, you will do a thing for me... but... that something, you'll do it later, right now, I wonder what will you do?" Izanamon asked. She has stopped coughing blood, but the damage must be severe enough. When Ayaka healed her, she smiled sadly instead.
"Do not waste your time on me, child. I'm already beyond your reach."
Out of sudden, with dark burst of energy, Ayaka is stripped from her Konohamon form and instead returned to her current highest form, Acerimon. From three different directions wafts thick, evil, bloodthirsty aura. Izanamon smiled sadly.
"...Looks like they're still here albeit the charm I gave my daughters? Such a brutal world, to relieve this memory yet again... Ayaka, I request you... take care of my children."
Right on cue, many panicked Cormmon and Kodamon came to place where the fight was. They looks really scared, as if they saw demon themselves.
"I know... Dear children... no matter whether I'm just replaying a memory or it's a second chance given to me by mockery of destiny... know that I'll always love you..."
A NeoDevimon, a NeoVamdemon and finally a GrandDarcmon appeared, looking as if they're awaiting to seize the moment to kill the Mega Digimon. However, Izanamon herself does not falter. She stepped forward, still bloodied from her own blood. On the ground, higanbana sprouts as she walked forward. Her braid undid itself, revealing the impressive length of her black hair.
"A mother would do anything for her children... to ensure her children's safety, she would even turn into monster and eliminate the danger... Even when feared, even when shunned... She'll stood proudly in front of a danger... Therefore..."
Blast of red aura came from the underworld dweller, changing her skin into deathly pale, her nails become longer, her hair turned white and finally, two demon-like horn appeared on her forehead. The higanbana on her head multiplied before they let out some sort red light particles.
"...Do you know what Higanbana means, Ayaka? It means... 'I'll never see you again'."
Her beautiful face filled coursing with purple tattoo which made her looks like very unnatural and evil.
"COME HERE, THREE OF YOU LOWLY BEINGS! I'LL NEVER LET YOU TOUCH MY CHILDREN!"
The three demons starting descends down to Izanamon. IZANAMON ~ FUNERAL MODE / IZANAMIMON SUPER MEGA / VIRUS / UNDEAD DIGIMON / DARK AREA
Izanamimon's Passive Enma's Law: Under no condition that both party (Izanamimon and the three enemies) may cure themselves, be cured or drain. Healing and draining moves owned by the two parties totally blocked.
They had... failed, but for some reason, Ayaka didn't feel bad for that. She'd been outsmarted pretty handily, and had to say that her aunt was a formidable fighter, yet... she didn't know why, but she had the impression that her dearest aunt wouldn't be with them for much longer. As she devolved into Acerimon again and Izanamon's children appared, it seemed that they'd have to fight again. Right after her aunt requested her to take care of her children, three digimon descended with their intent clear; they wanted a fight.
Izanamon was conscious of this fact and was doing the necessary preparations. Ayaka wouldn't do any less; even if her form wasn't as powerful as before, she'd try her best. "Ankh, we will help as much as we can. None shall harm my cou— my sisters".
As Izanamon fully intended to charge head-on on the enemy, given her transformation, Ayaka stood on a protective stance in front of what she felt were and loved like her sisters. They, alongside Izanamon, were her only family, and she'd cherish it as such. "Listen to me, sisters. Maybe Okaa-sama will not be able to be at your side, but I will give my life if necessary to keep you safe. Please, trust in me".
And so, as they expected the new enemies' assault, Izanamon implied that they wouldn't see each other again. It was sad and maybe true, but... "Such a dire meaning for a beautiful flower..." she muttered "But I will challenge the destiny with all my strength if there is a sliver of a chance of us meeting once more. No less is to be expected from a loving daughter. Right, okaa-sama?".
Deep within her digicore, her feelings burned with all their might. She didn't care if they were tired after the combat or if these digimon were more powerful than her. She'd stand and fight, even to the last consequences.
Winds of summer blew onwards, bringing some warmth to this cold enviroment as Ayaka radiated her Winds of Change towards Izanamon and Ankh. If things were to begin, they'd need every adventage they could get.
OOC: Winds of Change (Summer): Up to two allies can use up to two special attacks on their next post without straining themselves. Active Season: Summer (Boosts nearby allies' attack).

So, they failed. Ankh didn't expect such answer, but then, he didn't mind at all. At least he could see the grandma's conviction, that she just wanted to protect her children and to see Ayaka and his conviction as well. He didn't care about losing or winning, but what he cared was how he and that Izanamon hag could show their respective strength. Now he had no regrets to see that Izanamon was indeed powerful.
"Honestly, I don't care if I and Hanahime failed, really. All I want is just to see if you were serious on testing our strength. And you did. You finally acknowledged our strength, and you're strong too." Ankh said. "Don't worry about that, old hag. Hanahime will take care your children well. Of course, I will too. And I'll make sure they're protected from the hands of wicked, and the strong ones who try to harm them."
As if on the cue, said "Strong ones" came to the scene. It was obvious, they wanted to attack them all. Ayaka then said to him to help Izanamon, as the three Digimons appeared. "Fine with me, Hanahime. Like hell we would let them do as they please!" Ankh responded with a nod. He then witnessed the Izanamon transformed into more... hideous form? Why looks like he had the uneasy feeling?
And he saw the higanbana sprouted behind her. The flower of death, flower of farewell. It wasn't the nice flower you'd present to. Knowing this Ankh just looked at her, and wondered if the same thing would happen between him and Hanahime. No, he couldn't let that happen. He wanted Ayaka so much, and she was the reason he wanted the new world! He had determined himself to make the ideal world for likes of Izanamon and her children to live: The world of equality.
"Even if we're fated not to meet with each other anymore, I'll hold your conviction dear, and to remember your strength forever. I promise, I'll make the world better place for your children, and everyone else... And our future children with Hanahime." Ankh stated. That's why, he had to fight with fate, and win. Ankh then clenched his fist and glared to the three Digimons. He still had his Flame of Desire on, so... he could give them hard starter.
Right after Izanamon taunted these demons and Ayaka transformed while buffing her aunt and her (possible) love, Ankh let out a burst of laughter. "A-hahaha! Come! Show me your real strength!" Ankh taunted the demonic Digimons as well. Ankh then projected the flaming peacock tail in front of the cannon before shooting hundreds of feathers from it at the three Digimons. "Peacock Blaster!"
Ankh then flew upwards, and the flames emanated around him, before enveloping him. The flames then grew bigger and bigger, expanded to form a phoenix, which was almost thrice his size. The flaming phoenix let out a screech, that would notify that it would attack soon enough. The FireBeelzemon then descended towards the three Digimons, and as he motioned a flying punch at a NeoMyotismon, the bird would clash on him.
"DON'T ATTACK!!" Izanamimon suddenly declared. However, it looks like the bird man is really hot blooded. He would feel something seem to attack him from inside as he attacked the enemies. Not to mention, he has used two actions, which means it'll be really dire to his body. Strong poison came out from her body, as if reacting to an attack. Izanamimon's poison chased Ankh and entered his system even without him inhaling it, dealing 3% of the damage of his own attack back to him.
Izanamimon's Passive: Binds of Hades: Discouraging allies and enemies alike from attacking by giving them 3% damage of their skill back to themselves. A nasty poison that would return the damage given, even for a small amount. Izanamimon will not be affected. Seeing that it might be impossible for the bird man to act without harming himself, Izanamimon moved forward, summoning even more elaborate naginata, Amenonuhouko. Swiftly, the Digimon charged to the strongest Digimon there... the GranDracmon who just flew to dodge the feather. Two undeads clashes in series of attacks between weapon and two beastly maws. The sheer size difference is also something... However, that's not the end. The NeoMyotismon has evaded Ankh's attack and dodging his punch after vanishing behind him, the Digimon slammed him down to the earth, a ball of evil energy formed on his hand. However, it's clear that he's hurt by the poison, too as he flinched.
To where Ayaka is, the Neodevimon stared at her eerily, but not moving after Ankh's attack just now. It's as if he's waiting for something.
Ayaka readied herself at this complex situation. From Izanamon's exclamation and what had happened further, Ayaka deducted that, for some reason, whoever did damage to anyone would be just damaged back. How much she didn't know, but if it was for a sizable amount it'd come to be an hindrance. She thought about the best way to seize this, but now... NeoDevimon... why he didn't attack? It was almost as if he were waiting for something. She didn't know what to expect of that, but if he believed that she'd be away from Izanamon's children, that Neodevimon was up to some serious dissapointment.
Deciding against the most obvious course of action, she immediately drew out her bow, and on an almost automatic thought, an arrow made of pure frost was flying towards the NeoDevimon. Should it hit, maybe it provide an opening to Ankh to severely damage the guy, as he would probably be too slow to act or to retaliate against further attacks. Still, she had a bad omen about what the evolved Devimon was planning. Inactivity, however, would only set them back further. Everyone was giving out their best, and she would do the exact same thing too. For her new mother and her new sisters, she had to push forward.

Darn it! ALL of Ankh's attacks missed! The feathers, and even his most potent attack Magna Blaze were all avoided. And it didn't end just like that, as he was slammed to the ground by NeoMyotismon! Those damned demons... They were pretty strong, and clever. On top of that, suddenly he felt a pang of pain in his chest. Wait, what was that?! Don't tell... That it was Izanamon's trap again?!
"KUH! How dare you, old hag..." Ankh growled. "Can't you just let us to fucking help you protect your children and beat up those filthy demons?! For fuck's sake!"
Now he didn't care about the pain he would get. He just tried to help Izanamon to protect her children. They shared a pain from living in such poor place with him, so he could understand what kind of suffering they were getting. There was no time to loose. He must defeat those lowly beings along with Ayaka. Just as the NeoMyotismon was about to send a ball of dark energy at the FireBeelzemon, he was flinched from the poison. Looks like this could be his advantage as well. But what was worse, his Flame of Rebirth didn't respond to him.
"Fine then! I'll crush you all at once!" Ankh declared as he pointed his gun and cannon towards the NeoDevimon, just at the time Ayaka shot her icy arrows. He then shot the NeoDevimon with his shotgun, and then his arm cannon jerked at NeoMyotismon, shooting him with explosive flaming feathers. He was shooting two targets at same time, with different weapons.
(OOC: Flames of Desire: expired, 2 posts cooldown)
"It doesn't matter to help or to not! My order is to help defending them, not attacking the enemy! If you attack, then you cannot be healed by Ayaka!" Izanamimon replied. However, for a moment, when she looked at Ankh, it's almost like she's losing her beauty... her cheekbones, as if the plant have those, now almost pronounced, like the woman is an old lady now. Her previously beautiful black hair now starting to whiten. However, the scariest of it all is that her eyes has turned red with all the veins inside the eyes concentrated at the pupils.
It's a technique that consumes flesh. The technique called 'Many Myriads of 1000 Curses' actually activates burst-mode like evolution that changes Izanamon to her higher form, but in return of killing exactly 1000 individual while losing her body. Those who's very familiar of this concept would understand that her thirst won't be satiable unless she killed all the individual here... however...
It's almost like even if she only fight three individuals, she won't let any of them survive and would delete them to the end.
"DIE!!" she yelled at her vampiric enemy, releasing what looks like gate toward the underworld. The Digimon, looking at that smirked.
"You want to send me there again? Don't you think it's already futile?"
"Back then it was one vs three! Now you shall face the Yomi's fury!"
Izanamimon opened the gate, but before she could...
Blood flew out of her back, splattering the ground.
Two more NeoDevimon stood behind her.... What? This is not supposed to be like this! However, the Neodevimon suddenly cried in pain, their body rotting rapidly and then, they was nothing more than bones which Izanamimon stepped on. It was a lethal poison.
"Nh.... So you're the big boss while the other are the illusion..."
"Bingo." Entrance to Yomi: Sends enemy to underworld below, submitting them to hellish tortures deep below. Works rather similarly to HolyAngemon's Heaven's Gate.
OOC: Now enemies can be controlled by you, other than GrandDarcmon
The fight was now obviously happening around Izanamon. Even if GranDracmon's henchmen were somewhat unresponsive as of now, she figured that were up to something, right? But as she'd later discover in Izanamon's exchange with GranDracmon, he was the one behind everything. If they defeated him, then the trial would be over.
Of course, that was way easier to be said than done. He was a Super mega and Ayaka was just a measly ultimate. If she could only evolve to Konohamon again... she'd be able to help, but she felt as if her strength waned by every second that passed. She was too distraught with Mana's wellbeing truly achieve that level in this moment, and that frustrated her too much; she wanted to help her new surrogate mother, she truly wanted to do so, but... did she even had the power to break the bounds of her current stage? If she had it, it didn't matter as of now. She concentrated on Izanamon's visage, infusing her body with heat. She was sure that a rookie-level attack would only sting the super mega a bit, and the boost would come as something handy in helping her to overpower GranDracmon. Every adventage that could be given should be given, after all.
OOC: Ayaka is using Everburning Spirit (Summer) on Izanamon: Ayaka raises her target's speed and attack to such high levels that the exertion ends up damaging them for a rookie-level attack. Lasts 2 posts. When this ability fades, all the remaining cooldowns of the target are reduced by one post.

"Tch, so I have nothing to do other than sit back and watch, huh?!" Ankh grunted in disappointment. He had nothing to do other than staying in front of the Izanamimon's children and to protect them. He could shoot those demons from afar, though. The shots hit NeoDevimon, but it turned into... dead bones? Wait, there's two more? Fortunately, that old hag did a quick work on them.
The feather did explode on NeoMyotismon, and it turned into dead bones as well. Judging from the battle goes, looks like the bones were in fact, were medium used for an illusion. Hearing the Izanamimon's remark, Ankh finally noticed who caused all the mishap.
"I see... So you're the cause of this fucking shit. Never mind. Just drop dead! Peacock Blaster!" Ankh said to the Grandracmon before he fired more explosive peacock feathers at him. While covering Izanamon's children, Ankh kept shooting the dracula Digimon, and to the appearing enemies as well, to make sure they wouldn't touch the infants and children. He didn't care of being hurt, as long as the Grandracmon fiasco could be over with.
The battle rages on once more. With Ayaka's support, Izanamimon has gained upper hand from the other Digimon, who's seem to be a level lower than her. However, the problem is that even if it's true, she's very weak and grows weaker each passing seconds. It's as if the technique itself is draining her very essence of life... and soon, as the battle rages on, Izanamimon's visage starting to rot... rot slowly, like her body is eaten by some sort of maggots.
"How pitiful, 'Flower of Dead Realm'... not even your beauty is eternal."
"Beauty is meaningless when compared to the safety of my children, that's all!"
Izanamimon sends waves of darkness that seem made of tortured souls at his offender, only to be countered by some sort of bat wings. However, midway, Ankh shoots the vampire Digimon with his exploding feathers. It did deal some damage, and that is clear when looking at the vampire's expression... Pure fury.
"DO NOT INTERFERE!!" he shouted, summoning more NeoMyotismon that summoned their Evilvil to attack both Ankh and Ayaka. Not to mention, there's another one, that seems ready to fire his attack at one of the weakened Cormmon.
Great. Ayaka's technique had been effective and now Izanamon had the upper hand. Things were looking good now, but even then... Izanamon looked to be on a quite bad shape, and those weren't only battle injuries. Truth to be told, the fairy felt tired; she had fought against Izanamon for a good amount of time, and now was barely breathing to keep her incantations in place.
However, she kept and kept asking to her body to just give her a little more strength. She had vowed to defend her sisters with her live if it was necessary, and no kind of emotional distress would deter her from that. In spite of that, the fact that she was outleveled and tired was still there, weighing her movements down with each passing second. She moved one second too late, and now two evilvils were nibbling one of her arms due to one of NeoVamdemon's attack.
The pain was intense, yet she took it as she tried to throw away the insulting familiars. What she didn't expect, and what made her eyes widen now was the attack a NeoVamdemon was directing at one of the weakened Cormon's. Dashing in front of it, she used her body to shield the infant bulbotuber from. The bright light of the Vamdemon's Gardiac Raid engulfed Ayaka, but its glow was brighter than usual, blinding whoever looked on that direction.
When the light ceased Acerimon wasn't there anymore... it was Konohamon who stood in her place proudly, shining as a beacon of light in the this dark land. The attack had injured her, but her increased defense due to her Eien no Haru had negated a good amount of it. Grieving time was over; she'd stop worrying about Mana and would actually try to get out of this mess she could help her, and she'd save all of Izanamon's daughters while at it. She wouldn't rest and she wouldn't have mercy. No matter what, she'd emerge victorious from this.
OOC: T: 3 R: 3
Eien no Haru: Ayaka unseals a large amount of power from her digicore, gaining a temporary burst of power. Her speed, reflexes and defense are greatly increased and she gains two additional charges of both Tranquility and Refuge at the start of each of her turns. Lasts 6 posts. Once per fight.

Woah, Ankh had just pissed that Grandracmon off, didn't he? Not to mention he summoned more NeoMyotismons to do his bidding. They summoned the bats to Ayaka and Ankh, to make them busy. Ankh shot them down with his arm cannon and gun, and then shot some more aiming to Ayaka. However, some of them managed to bite her. "HANAHIME!!!" Ankh yelled in worry.
Just before Ankh tried to stop NeoMyotismon from attacking a Cormmon, Ayaka stood to cover her, and then... she digivolved again? However, this time, she digivolved by her own will, not forced by Izanamimon. Looks like she had made use of her own inner strength. She took the attack just fine, but that NeoMyotismon needed to be dealt with. Ankh once again, channeled his Flame of Desire into his entire body, tripling his power and speed. Hopefully he could topple those NeoMyotismon easily.
