Well, well, it managed to nick the sneaky fox, had it? Horn Striker looked briefly over its shoulder, noting that a good amount of 'something' was now floating in the air behind it. It wasn't immediately clear how this monster was seeing without eyes, but it seemed immediately wary of approach, not willing to go directly into the range of these bombs. Though, that left Kuro with a rather clean escape path, herself.
Or... not. Instead, the creature reached for the ground, ripping out a huge piece of earth, hoisting it over its head. And with a lunging throw, he would heave it forward, a practical boulder of rock and mud, aiming to slam Kuro right into the ground. A makeshift blow, but would the confident fox even see something like that coming? Well... it wasn't a quiet attack in the slightest...
Kai & Shiro
Yeah, that foot definitely wasn't going to look good, or be steady to use for quite a while. Not that he had time to worry about it, with another Pendulum Feet running its way! And as Shiro made himself nice, wide and open, the cloaked monster was not going to waste the opportunity: cloak open, wires and scythes wide, it would aim to grapple straight around the white-furred ultimate. And even now, that familiar red, pulsing glow was visible underneath its cloak, ready to detonate itself as soon as it was able.
This wasn't going to end well, if it was simply allowed to go this way! "N-no offense, guys, but that's a little extreme! Why don't we group back up with the others?
Paratice Head, Part 1
It was quite clear that Elliot was going to be worse for wear: caught directly in the grip of Paratice's attack, there was no buffer or shield that made it even remotely difficult for the monster to proceed. Each bite tore deep into Elliot's scales and skin, at his head, and down throughout the length of his body. Coupled with the corrupting burns, this Sandiramon was going to look a lot more like a mangled mess of purple and red than an actual serpent, should this go on for too long.
That said, it wasn't just one Ultimate that Paratice had to contend with, but three: a titan of bone, and a more agile fox-weasel with scythe arms. After taking bullet after bullet, rattling through the bones, Scout managed to get in close enough to let out a torrent of flame. The grip held on the serpent, for several more seconds, as the flames washed over its arm and side - it wasn't as if something of Paratice's size could so easily move out of the way of such a wide-spread attack. No: only when his arm fell limp, bubbling over from the grapple, did it let Elliot go, down into a heap on the ground.
"🕈♒⍓ ❍◆⬧⧫ ♓⧫ ♒◆❒⧫?" Its teeth chattered, until the blades of wind slammed against one of its open mouth, shattering it like a porcelain plate. Elliot was left aside, as Paratice turned towards these two still-standing combatants. And from the last exchange, it was clear that the Skullgreymon had quite a bit more bite than the other one. It squared off its stance, ready to charge. However...
Isaac, Part 1
Well... how was that for a tipping point? In a way, this intrigued the D-Reaper: one, who had been so calm just a moment prior, had a complete change of thought at what it considered its barest suggestion. Though, at this point, the void was doing nothing but taunting him: no matter what the Impmon said, no matter what it screamed, it would not get the answer it wanted from the void.
The imp gave way to the soldier, the soldier gave way to the serpent. But what was the difference, in this infinite backdrop? It was all the same, just a different form for the D-Reaper to poke at. All just one act of defiance. But it was just that:
Defiance. This one choice...
Paratice Head, Part 2
... Would change the battle, below. At the first step of its new charge, the Paratice Head would almost look like it tripped over itself, all of its mouths giving one loud 'click'. Then, all opened at once, tearing out a deafening screech, enough to burrow deep into anything around that had ears to listen with. Skin broiling and bubbling over, it harshly looked down towards Scout and Kuu. Slowed from damage, 'something' about it seemed to change in that instant.
"Destroy... destroy!" Its words were far more clear, pushing straight off, this time moving with much more effort: it aimed its right hand, palm out, intending to slam Scout's head into the ground, to keep the flames aimed away from its body. Simultaneously, with its left hand, it quickly moved out, to try and snatch Kuu right off the ground, the mouth in its palm open and ready to crunch down if it could get a good grip! Further, if it could manage to stagger SkullGreymon at all, the Paratice head was going to be intent on chasing Kuu down, first!
"Too wordy for your own good! Begone!"
Isaac, Part 2
It no longer needed to comfort this imp. If it chose this route, then the best the mass could do was lay waste to this land: as Orochimon rampaged, and screamed out to the void, Isaac would feel his sight 'crack'. Like looking through a camera with a cracked lens, more and more cracks etching inwards, until it shattered away to darkness.
"Hey... hey! Wake up, already!"
The darkness, inside his own eyelids. Isaac would feel himself at the bottom of some curved ball, still as prominent and white as the illusion, but a clearly smaller and defined space than before. He would also find that he was still an Impmon, and that the device on his person was chirping with the familiar words of Datamon. "Sheesh... you alright, there? You were scaring me half to death with that sleep-talking stuff..."
Was all of that just an illusion? But here, in this space, Isaac would see that he was not alone. Just a short distance away, was an out-of-place machine, in the center of the white orb:
Ebemon. An actual Digimon, caught in the center of this. Its eyes were white, overlooking several floating, holographic, colored screens, flickering away after a moment before a new one took its place. This definitely seemed more solid than whatever delusion Isaac was in before, but just what did this mean at all?
