DC#1 [Part 2] - A city high above the sky [Boru/Titania]
Post by Toriya Naoko on May 12, 2019 6:23:41 GMT
The walls were closing in, and this fight was getting more and more uncomfortably close. In both a figurative and a literal sense. The fairy tried to move back, but there was ice there. Then to the side. Lo and behold. More ice.
So, she went with the other option. Titania threw herself at the Pandamon, spinning a number of times to throw a fierce kick with her ice-coated leg, a kick that was poised to make contact with the fist of the Pandamon. Titania was already starting to get worn out, too, so the question could be asked. Who would emerge victorious in this struggle? The queen, or the ninja bear?
"Who the hell's Jazz? Another friend of yours? Gods, I bet she's as worthless as you are. And you're worth less than -piss!-" Viza spat as she walked towards Boru, lightning starting to crackle through her paws once more. This was it. A would-be coup-de-grace.
"Have fun dying knowing that all you did was waste my time." The cat stated before she broke out into a sprint, rushing towards Boru with the intent to bury her claws into his face.
But that wouldn't be it, would it?

Once again, he was scared. Once again, he had paralyzed in the face of danger. Just like in Gururu Cave. Just like in the Bayou, when Parrotmon was taking Mr. Gero. Was he really this useless? Could it be that he couldn’t do anything to help himself and others? Viza was not planning to play around with him, she was going for the kill right now. Boru could tell if that claw went through him he would be dead.
He had to do something! Quick!
The Psychemon closed his eyes, trying to make electricity circle through his body to shoot it at Viza. While he charged, he opened up his eyes again. Just from seeing the Blackgatomon charging at him, the electricity that had concentrated around his horn exploded, not really going anywhere or harming the cat, just causing more damage to Boru himself. He was so nervous he couldn’t even focus on shooting electricity at the enemy.
Although painful, the blast would at least get him away from Viza, not letting her impale him with her claw, and sending him several meters through the air, hitting a wall, falling to the ground. Clenching his teeth, Boru slammed his arm against the floor.
He couldn’t do anything right, could he? He couldn’t be cool or do amazing stuff like Jazz or Titania did. With this thought, a memory came to him. A memory of him and Titania chatting at the Mangrove, a couple of days ago.
“I'm sure you would get along great! Jazz is just like you, so brave and full of attitude. Sometimes I wish I would be as cool as you two are.”
What did…? What did Mrs. Titania say to that? Why was it that he couldn’t quite place the rest of the memory in his head?
Right now, it was likely something else would raise both the cat’s and the Psychemon’s attention. From his self-damaging attack, Boru’s backpack had fallen to the ground in the explosion, a couple of items popping out of it. Boru's eyes widened when he was able to decry what items they were.
It was that map he was supposed to give to Katherine, and the radar he and his brothers were supposed to use to find her.
Close combat. The battle had been taken to a place where the Pandamon wanted to fight from the beginning. And yet still, the Kazemon was not backing down, not even for a second. She had understood the terrain where the battle would be fought and had rampaged against the Pandamon. Now they were exchanging blows at maximum speed, while the ice closed in on Titania. If he could resist this swarm of wild attacks and fight back well enough until the ice got to the middle and froze her enemy, he could win. However, resisting until that moment arrived seemed harder with every blow.
The intensity of their exchange was purely overwhelming. The ground shattered more every time they made contact. The strength they put into their swings was brutal. And yet still.. his head was not there. The Pandamon couldn’t stop thinking about why he had to win. About the reason why he had to keep going. About the one who was waiting for him at that place. His vision was getting numb, his strength started to leave his body and he felt as if he were about to collapse. Then, a single memory appeared inside his head.
“No… No! No way! No way I’m doing that!”
“This is not a suggestion. It’s an order, bo.”
“B-But… I can’t leave you alone, master!”
“Now that Bastian and Paul are not around, I might not be able to protect you by myself. I need you to be at a safe place while I pay my debt.”
“Then let’s leave! Let’s leave together, Master!”
“You know I can’t do that. If I do, you will…”
"Then... promise... bo."
“PROMISE ME YOU’LL COME BACK FOR ME, MASTER! PROMISE ME THAT, AND I WILL WAIT FOR YOU FOR AS LONG AS IT’S NECESSARY!”
“I can’t allow it…” The bear muttered, while their bout continued. “I need to go back to her.” His words turned into a shout. “I can’t allow myself to lose here!”
Bang. With those words, the ice in Titania’s limbs imploded, separating into shards of ice. In a similar manner, all of the ice around the fairy and throughout the whole room exploded, millions and millions of shards filling the air. All of them floating, all of them surrounding Titania, glowing with energy and looking sharper than a sword. This was it. This was everything he had. His final technique. This Kazemon had brought him to this, had made him go beyond his own limits. Had forced him to put absolutely everything he had into this final movement. And he was going to surpass those limits. He was going to do it for her.
“I said it back then, and I stick to my word.” He said. "I promise..."
The Pandamon’s arm was covered in solid ice, glowing in a bright blue color. His arm was pulsing from the amount of energy that had been put in his next movement. “I promise…!” All of the shards moved towards Titania aggressively and the Pandamon got ready to throw the strongest of his punches. If this Kazemon wanted to stop him, she would have to give absolutely everything she could give in this form.
“I PROMISE I WILL GO BACK FOR YOU, GOYI.” He shouted, throwing his final blow.

What the actual hell was this Psychemon's deal? That blast he just pulled did nothing for him. Heck, he was even hurting himself for her. That was something the cat found -adorable!- "Aww, toasting yourself so that I don't need to do that myself? You shouldn't." Viza...purred?
How could someone take so much -joy- in this stuff? She was just about to stride up to make another attempt at finishing the job, when something caught her eye. The cat slinked on over towards Boru's fallen backpack, and appraised the items. A map...And a radar? "Oh, looks like we have ourselves a treasure hunter, hm?"
The cat looked the map over as she picked the two items up.
As much as she had an advantage fighting at range, close combat had always been a favorite of Titania's. That's why this battle had largely been even. Well, the term largely is applied...loosely in this instance. This was a race against the inevitable.
Titania had to win here or she'd be trapped in a frozen coffin, not unlike that which her aunt favored. And as every second ticked by, as every blow met another? The ice continued to encompass the fairy. "You know, I've got someone to get back to too, you asshole..." She growled. "And as much as I feel for you, it'd be a severe insult to her if I lost here."
Colors began to dance all around Titania as the fairy herself became what could essentially be described as a multi-colored being that might be a walking epilepsy warning. That, was one of the two techniques that nobody had ever seen from her in all of her long years of life. This was the Fairy Queen's Prism Dance.
This was the capstone of her power in this form. And she had to use it well, and use it precisely. As the Pandamon came at her for a final blow, the Kazemon surged forward to throw a final kick towards her adversary. This was it.
This is where the fight would be decided. Who would be victorious? A master seeking to see his greatest pupil again, or a single fairy who sought only to help those who couldn't help themselves?

While Viza kept mocking Boru’s skills to even engage in combat properly, the Psychemon just stared as she casually walked around the hallway. Then, his eyes widened right when she noticed the radar and the map. The only way to find Katherine and Jazz. The mission assigned by Reiki to him and his brothers. The whole reason why they had started this large quest. They needed to use the radar to find the human and his sister and give them that map. Once again, some of Titania’s words came to his mind.“This is lower Terminus. It...It's really old…”
She had helped him discover where the map would take Katherine. What could be waiting for her there? Why did Reiki want her to find it? Questions that would never be answered if Viza destroyed those two items.
Was this how it was really going to be? Boru could not, for dear life, stop this cat from destroying the items he and his brother had fought so hard to protect during all of this time? Assuming he could save them, how was he going to look Koru and Roru in the eyes if he lost these two items and they were left with no leads to find Katherine? What would he say to Reiki when he found out the map he had given them was lost? Again, those words he had said to himself many times echoed in his head. The same words he told Titania back at the Mangrove.“I'm sure you would get along great! Jazz is just like you, so brave and full of attitude. Sometimes I wish I would be as cool as you two are.”
Boru closed his eyes, resting his face against the floor. It was futile. He was too tired. He was so useless right now he could not even get on his feet. Boru was not Jazz or Titania. He could not be as cool as they were. He could not be a hero.
What was that? Was that… Titania’s voice? As a spark igniting inside his head, a memory of Titania’s words came to him. It was what she had replied back at the Mangrove when he said he could not be as cool as she was."… everyone's got their time to be cool, in my honest opinion. Maybe that time's coming for you, sooner or later.”
Everyone’s got their time… to be cool?
No. It couldn’t end like this. It just couldn’t. Right when everyone most needed him. When Titania stayed behind trusting in him. When so many people back in the Bayou needed them. When his brothers, Jazz, and Katherine needed him.
Boru tried to focus every last bit of energy inside of his data. If he could not trust himself to get up or use anything else as motivation, there was
something he could use: Anger. The anger of seeing a cat trying to crush the wills of so many people fighting so hard. He attempted to lend the energy from every muscle in his body to get the power to fight Viza. If everyone had their time to be cool. This one should better be it for him, because everyone was counting on it.“Don’t… touch that.”
Before Viza noticed, Boru was up. Dark sparks of electricity bolted around the Psychemon’s pelt and his eyes were gleaming with a purple color. If she paid enough attention, she could see Boru’s energy flowing through his body and even spreading to the surroundings.“GET YOUR HANDS AWAY FROM THAT!”
It happened almost in a glimpse. Boru’s body started changing, promptly, aggressively. His pelt started covering his body and he started growing in size. As every second ticked, his body just kept growing and growing while he acquired a more beastly, quadruped form.
A massive, 20 ft tall creature was now standing in front of Viza. Boru was so huge he had destroyed the whole hallway for him to fit on it, causing the whole floor to start crumbling and making the rest of the tower shake. This thing wouldn’t hold out much longer. That much was clear as the night sky.
It was hard to tell if this monster was Boru or not. It was his body, but was it his consciousness inside of it? He seemed angered, beastly. His pupils looked blank and he stood ready to attack. After slightly opening his mouth, the Gururumon shot a blast of fire straight at Viza. With all of the debris falling, the speed this shot traveled with and the size of that thing, dodging it seemed almost impossible.
That should take care of her.
The final contact occurred. The Pandamon and Titania hit each other. The energy-packed punch from the bear hit the fairy right at her face, while her kick smashed the enemy right below his jaw. Both got propelled in the opposite direction.
The whole stage trembled and the expansive wave coming from that crash spread throughout the whole tower. A movement coming from some floors above was making the whole building on top of them shake too. The consequences of Boru's evolution could be felt down here too.
The outcome of the battle? It was defined by a whisker. It was likely Titania had a lot of trouble to move properly, but Pandamon laid unconscious on the ground.
It was finally over.
The tower kept shaking and pieces of concrete kept falling. Titania had to move, even if it was probably very hard. Right when the fairy was about to collapse, a yellow, bee-like digimon would enter the chamber coming from the crumbling stairs that came from down below.
The eyes of the creature widened, looking at the fairy. She fluttered her wings moving back for a second, looking scared, but the debris falling behind her made it hard to push back.
Could Titania remember someone mentioning a Funbeemon? She actually knew this digimon’s father!

Viza hadn't managed to get that good of a look at the map. She was able to recognize what it was of, though only barely. What happened next was somewhat of a blur, given how quick the circumstances had escalated. The mere thought of her even touching these possessions of his had motivated the Psychemon to get back up and surge with anger.
Anger, as it turns out, is an excellent motivator for Digivolution. This was something Viza knew, even long before she had ended up like this. And as Psychemon was considered a variant of Gabumon, it made sense that this one would evolve into a variant of Garurumon, Gururumon.
It saw fit as to try executing her there on the spot, and as quick as Boru had launched his attack, Viza had launched her response to it. A black barrier rose in front of her as she extended a palm, but alas, it wasn't enough. The fire broke through and scorched Viza to the core, and blew bits of data off of her.
Including her gloves. What stood in front of Boru now was a horribly burnt BlackGatomon. It was a miracle his belongings were still intact. "...Tch. I waste more time and kill you now, I won't have time to get out of here." She growled, before a violet light engulfed the BlackGatomon.
Was she evolving? Likely. But as soon as she concluded her digivolution into a vaguely more humanoid figure, it split into numerous bats and flew every which way away from Boru. "We'll meet again, boy! And when we do...I'll kill you. I'll kill you dead."
They flew down the hallway that once...well, was. Towards the escape route. The little creatures that used to be Viza made a point of flying in the face of the Gururumon, smelling like charred flesh. What would he do now?
Contact. A punch to the face, for a kick to the jaw. Titania was sent flying back and hit the ground, rolling. She was briefly still, unmoving, but the fairy summoned every ounce of willpower she had to drag herself to her feet. Her chilled, mostly frostbitten feet.
Just in time to witness Kuma fall over. With deep breaths, the Kazemon tried to move, staggering towards the stairs before...A Fanbeemon had entered the chamber. She had...heard of this. Back at the village. "You..." She croaked. "You're the...fruit keeper's daughter, aren't you? H-Hey, mind...lending me a hand? Where are your friends...?"
Post by Katherine Jasso on May 22, 2019 22:41:08 GMT
If bees could gasp, this little creature would have. She seemed a bit of a scaredy cat, even a bit afraid to talk. However, some words unavoidably escaped her when Titania mentioned Ron.“Y-You know my... dad?”
She asked. Why? Why did this Kazemon, in the middle of her crumbling prison, know her dad? She didn’t ring any bells as anyone who lived in the Bayou or inside the Mangrove.
She needed those answers, so…
The Funbeemon started moving her wings, green spores coming out of them. They started circling around Titania’s body. The fairy would soon enough feel a refreshing sensation. The pain she felt around every part of her body was reducing its intensity, and even the ice around her leg started to melt. Her cells were being restored.
When the insect digimon was done, Titania didn’t feel brand new, but she wasn’t going through a horrible amount of pain anymore. She could actually move a lot better now. However, it was clear she couldn’t withstand another battle right now, so she had to be careful from now on.
Now, the Funbeemon started flying up the next set of stairs. If Titania followed her, they would get to the upper floor. Then, her new friend would move towards a closed wooden door. “I… was held downstairs, because they said I was too weak to be useful for anything. But I heard some Shonitamons mention they had the rest of the people of the Bayou in here.”
It was clear this little bee didn’t have the strength to burst this door open. Could Titania do it?
The tower hadn’t stopped trembling for a single moment. They had to move.
Back at the floor they had just left behind, the Pandamon started waking up. His eyes scanned the layout of the room, Titania was gone. Immediately, he tried giving chase to her, only for his legs to give no response whatsoever and his body to plummet into the floor. His fall was cushioned by a pile of feathers.“What are you even doing?”
Ronda, the Effecmon, was standing by the hole Sonia had opened up with her fire technique when she had come thanks to Boru’s signal. “Forget it, I don’t need to know.”
Her eyes went around the room, while the whole tower kept falling apart. “What the hell happened here?”
The huge cocoon of ice formed around where Titania used to be was still standing.
She let out a sigh. “You pushed yourself too hard again.”
Now, she glanced at the Pandamon. “You offered to come here, just because Dash had to go to the real world to talk to Paul. And yet you gave absolutely everything you had. Truly admirable."
She moved her fingers as if she were giving an order to the feathers. “It’ll take me a while to heal you, though.”
The giant pillow lifted the Pandamon and moved through the hole, slowly taking the unconscious bear out and onto the forest around the tower. Yellow energy came out of the pile of feathers and it seemed to be healing his wounds.
The Effecmon peeked through the hole and raised her gaze. Up above, she could see an Aquilamon and a Parrotmon engaging in a brutal battle. “I wonder where Tip is…”
She muttered. “… I hope that idiot isn’t pushing himself too hard too.”
The female digimon took a brush out of her belt. By giving it a little tap with her finger, she made the thing grow in size and got on top of it. She took off, moving upward, like a witch riding a broom.
Viza would escape the room with no trouble. Gururumon just stared at her as she left, trying to keep his act together. Once all of those bats were nowhere to be seen, the wolf started changing shape again, going back into a Psychemon, who just collapsed onto the floor. He had used too much energy to accomplish that evolution. If Viza had counterattacked, he wouldn't have been able to fight back, so it was a good thing she didn't. It was the first time he actually evolved, after all.
The map and the radar were right in front of him. He wasn’t unconscious but… he couldn’t remember anything of what had happened.

“Yes. I was the only one down there. The rest of my group should be inside of this room.”
For everyone inside that crumbling tower, it should become obvious things were drawing to an end. Titania and Boru were still far away from the last room inside that tower but… Did they have time to reach it?
Titania burst through the door with a dropkick, turning it into a bunch of exploding shards. The eyes of the Funbeemon widened. Once the Kazemon had obliterated the obstacle, she flew into the room.
“Veena?” A voice was heard, coming from the eastern side of the room. A group of 17 digimon was held inside a crystal cage. Apparently, a very resistant type of crystal. All of them were rookies. Agumon, Salamon, Otamamon, Terriermon, Piyomon, Tentomon, Kunemon, Dokunemon, were some of the species that could be found inside.
“Everyone!” Veena, the Funbeemon, fluttered her wings moving towards the cage as a smile appeared in her face.
“The keycard!” A Betamon pointed at a shelf that seemed to contain a number of different cards. One of them had to open this one, right?
It actually did. In a minute, they were all outside the cage, gathering around the bee to thank her. “W-Who is she?” A Salamon inquired, looking at Titania.
“She’s helping us escape. And she knows my dad.” Veena quickly answered. “She is…” Then, she tilted her head. “… who are you?” That was actually an interesting question. It was a good time for Titania to explain who she was, and maybe telling them a friend of them was here to save them.
“Where is Agner?” The Funbeemon asked after her eyes scanned all of the prisoners.
“I heard they are keeping him in the last room since he is the only one of us who is a perfect level digimon.” An Otamamon answered straightly. This little frog had a huge resemblance with Gero, the red Otamamon who had helped Titania, Boru, and Sonia back at the Bayou. Veena returned a firm nod. Everyone else did the same.
“Let’s go then!” The bunch of rookies started moving towards the door Titania had destroyed.
In case the fairy was wondering, there was no way of convincing this group to take themselves to safety right now. There were leaving this tower together, all of them, or they were leaving at all.
“Time to save our leader!” One of them shouted while the other ones just cheered. They all seemed full of energy. They had revitalized for having the chance of getting out of here handed to them. All of the rookies started running out of the room and up the next set of stairs. Titania should try to keep up!
After going up several floors, the Kazemon would see a familiar face. At a floor that consisted only of a hallway that had been completely destroyed, a Psychemon slowly moved forward, a backpack on his back. He seemed like he was out of energy, completely exhausted. But he was not giving up.
“I must… keep going.” He muttered. “My brothers… need me.”
Boru and Titania, reunited once again. This time around an army of 17 rookies. Their way to the highest room of the tower seemed clear.
Post by Toriya Naoko on May 28, 2019 5:32:08 GMT
That can't have been pleasant for the FanBeemon. About as unpleasant as Titania's method of entry was for the door! She quickly did a flip and landed on her feet, before standing upright and looking about the room. Seventeen digimon all cooped up here. Upon being directed to the keycards, she ran towards them and helped find the one to unlock the prisons.
"My name is Titania, Daughter of Pixie and Xu. A friend of yours, a friend of mine and myself came here to save you from...whatever this shithole of an operation is." With that out of the way, they had one more person to go pick up, yet as the group ran up (with Titania desperately trying to keep up!), they found themselves with...one more person.
Several floors up, there was a haggard Boru trying his best to keep going. Titania slowed down, before she tapped Boru's shoulders. "Come on." She simply said before she picked up the Psychemon, backpack included, slung him under her arm and continued to follow the rookies to the highest room.
What would they find?
Post by Katherine Jasso on Jun 3, 2019 3:50:13 GMT
The group’s road to the last room of the tower would prove to be rather simple, compared to all of the struggle they had been through so far.“T-Thank you… Mrs. Titania.”
Boru sounded a little… confused, after being picked up. “I found that BlackGatomon from earlier again. She was blocking my way.”
It was only to that point things seemed to be clear for him. “Then… I don’t remember what happened. Next thing I knew she was gone and I was feeling very tired”
Slowly, his voice started to turn dimmer. “She did say something important: my brothers were taken to the highest room of the tower. They have to be... there, Mrs. Titania. We need to get... to them.”
Was he… falling asleep? “But… f-first… I think… I need--- to--- rest.”
Boru was out cold now. Yes, he was fast asleep now. However, he had provided some very important information. So far, the only plan they had was getting to whoever was the boss of this whole operation and asking them directly about the whereabouts of the Psychemons; mainly because they couldn’t go around every room of this tower looking for them. However, for the first time, they had a hint of where they were. And it seemed to be the same place where this Agner the rookies were looking for was.
Now there was no doubt to be held: the outcome of this whole adventure would be decided inside that room.
Just around one more minute of running would finally take the group to the last set of stairs, after going up the snail staircase, the fairy and the rookies would find the last room. No need for knocking or even opening the door this time, the gate seemed to have been burst from the outside, and just a single hole remained on the wall. Even from right there, it was likely Titania would feel a huge amount of energy coming from inside the room. Upon entering, she would see a green-colored creature, sparks of energy bursting around his body.
Even if they could only see the back of the green Aegiochusmon, it was easy to tell he seemed pretty angered.“Who is… that?”
Veena asked, her eyes widening. The sole presence of this digimon was overwhelming. It didn’t even feel like a creature capable of thinking, it was just... a monster. In front of it, and across the room, a DeathMeramon laid unconscious. Given the broken concrete and the scars from the impact around the structure, it was easy to tell he had just been slammed against the wall.
Not standing too far from it, a Nanomon was staring stunned.“H-How did you…!? DeathMeramon is my strongest soldier!”
By this point, Titania would probably recognize this Aegiochusmon was the evolved form of the Aegiomon they had found back in the Drunken Ranamon. This time it looked… different. Much more aggressive, much more beastly. At the robot’s question, the creature only kept panting.“What are you, even?”
Right now, everyone seemed to be busy with all of the things happening inside the room. Too busy to pay any attention to the army that had just arrived at the scene.“I’m not even sure of what it is, myself.”
A very feminine voice would get to everyone’s ears, somewhat answering the Nanomon’s question. The robot’s eyes would go about the room looking for its origins. He would find an Effecmon inside of one of the cages where he held some of the slaves he kept inside that room. Ronda.“W-Who are you? And how did you get here!?”
What the hell was going on all around his headquarters tonight? More and more enemies kept showing up! The artist seemed to ignore his question, only holding a brown palette in her left hand. The two Psyhchemon previously inside that cage were gone.“I mean, I know it's an Aegiochusmon, but the amount of power he has in that form is even hard to measure. I think he overworked himself as he always does.”
The Effecmon let out a very audible sigh. “He can’t control his own power in this form. It’s very troublesome.”
She confessed, opening up the cage from the inside.“What did you do to my test subjects!?”
“Those? I’m taking them for examination. You won’t be needing them much, anyway.”
Ronda raised her gaze, taking a look at the structure around her. “This whole tower is about to crumble into pieces very soon. And yet still, I think you have more important stuff to worry about.”
A mischievous smirk appeared on her face, her eyes glaring at Tip. Nanomon turned to see his enemy too, barely being able to move out of the way of a brutal blast of energy shot his way in the form of a green spear with a vine wrapped around it.
This was complete mayhem.

The group had obviously been through a lot, and for some, it showed far more prominently than others, especially in the case of Boru the Psychemon. Titania honestly didn't blame him. From what it sounded like, the poor kid had been through so much in such a short span of time...
When they finally got to the room, Titania saw something she was very sure was naught but myth. Aegiochusmon was a peculiar Digimon, one said to be able to alter the very data that composed them at a whim in order to match their surroundings. Despite this, Titania wasn't sure this was quite true until she witnessed the Aegiomon from earlier in what people would call the...Green form.
He had an associate with him, too. One that...Seemed to come out of those cages. Heck, it was like she was the only one in there the whole time!
"Hey, mind if I ask you to fork the two Psychemon over? Or at least tell me where they are? Because I'd very much like what I came here for." The Kazemon made her presence known with a growl.
Yep, this was how she was going to do things.
Post by Katherine Jasso on Jun 12, 2019 21:12:37 GMT
With the sound of another voice reaching her ears, the Effecmon turned to her left to find Titania and a group of rookie Digimon. Slowly, another of her bragging smiles made its way to Ronda's face. "I knew you would get here sooner or later. Although you must be pretty tired, after that fight you held with Kuma."
Now, her attention had shifted completely to the fairy. It was only then that she had decided to answer her question. "Oh."
She blinked twice, extending her color palette to show it to the fairy. Inside the splats of paint, which didn't seem to be affected by gravity, she could see the reflection of two Psychemon, hitting the surface of the painting. "You mean these ones?"
They seemed to be trapped inside the Effecmon's small art instrument.
Not far from them, Tip kept shooting blasts of energy to Nanomon, who could only barely dodge them. The shaking and trembling produced by the tower crumbling beneath them continued."It seems like we don't have much time."
She mused about the situation "I'll tell you what: I need some samples for us to study what type of experiments these guys were doing in here. I suppose I could trade this pair to you, if you are that interested in them."
She made a pause, as her smile changed into a mischievous one. "... For some of the ones you have there." Now, her eyes went to the group of rookies behind the fairy."You should make a choice soon, though. I need to --"
interrupted mid-sentence. By yet another
explosion. One of the walls inside the room had imploded as a portion of the bodies of two giant birds went through it. The battle between Sonia and the Parrotmon was far from being over, and it was only logical the insides of the highest room in the tower were seeing its consequences. Once the curtain of smoke and debris started clearing, Titania and the rest of the rookies would be able to see the two birds clashing outside, fighting each other with their claws and beaks."Who is... That?"
Veena's eyes widened as she stared at the two giant creatures. She could recognize the Parrotmon. But... That Aquilamon? Was Titania going to tell the little bee who she was?
The small outbursts seemed to have caused more damage to the room's structure."What was...!?"
Nanomon seemed to have noticed something else had been destroyed inside his lab. He started stuttering at this realization. "Cage number two...!"
Now, more of his test subjects have been released.
The robot had let his guard down, getting distracted long enough for Tip to properly strike a blow. It all happened to fast. The spear of energy thrust into the small digimon, not even three seconds later, his data started scattering around in small bits, slowly vanishing into the air. Before simply disappearing, Nanomon's eyes saw his laboratory, almost fully destroyed. Only a replica of his whole organization. It was the end of both him and his dream."That had to hurt..."
Ronda, who had been knocked down by the earthquake produced by the recent explosion, started incorporating. "Now, where was--"
Interrupted again. This time, a blast of energy had struck the Effecmon, sending her jutted against one of the walls, causing another roar. That
had to hurt. If Titania and the others turned their heads in the direction the shot came from, the shape of a small digimon with a blaster in his left hand could be decried through some of the smoke and the darkness inside the room."Who's there...!?"
Veena released a yellow glow of energy from her body, lighting up the chamber a bit. The light let them see the figure, walking out of a half-destroyed cage."I had tried everything to break out of those shackles. But the bursting of that wall seemed to have made it."
He explained. He had the voice of a young male, and his attitude was even laid-back. "I'm glad to see all of you are in one piece, though!"
By the end of that cage, another digimon was standing up. Apparently, Sonia and the Parrotmon's breaking inside the room during their fight had destroyed the other cage, releasing two more slaves. A combination of gasping and cheering could be heard. Many of them said the same name, upon seeing the small digimon come out of the destroyed cage...
The leader of the Mangrove had been set free.

Was this bitch actually for real? She wanted to -trade- some of the people she just saved for the Psychemon? That was outrageous. That actually filled Titania with no uncertain amount of rage. Her teeth were clenched, her fists were balled, until Veena asked her a question.
...Calm down. That's what you need to do. Titania moved to shield Veena if any debris from the wall wound up coming near her. Sonia and Parrotmon's battle was still raging on, compared to her and Boru's having concluded for now. "The Aquilamon's a friend--Sonia. A loved one of hers is trapped here...The Parrotmon is currently her enemy.
...Was that person here too? Hm....
While Tip was busy slaying the Nanomon, Titania witnessed Ronda be blasted by a shot from a cannon, a brief look in the direction it came from revealing it had come from a MetalMamemon.
Titania would step over towards Ronda, holding her hands out as though she were going to fire forth a Hurricane Wave. "Alright, I'm only going to ask once. Set them free, or I'll -beat you to a memory leaky pulp until you do.-" ...This was probably gonna get the Aegiochusmon on her ass, wasn't it?
Didn't matter, she had to get those Psychemon back one way or another.

“Sonia-sis is here!?”
Veena gasped, the rest of the rookies started mumbling too. Well, of course, they knew who Sonia was. However, she looked fairly different than the last time they had seen her. “Did she… evolve?”
The Otamamon asked. “Sonia-sis is awesome!”
A voice was heard from among the rookies too.
Now that Agner had come out of the cage, fulfilling a pretty awesome entrance by shooting Ronda, Titania’s words started clicking on Veena’s head. “Sonia’s loved one… you meant, Agner?”“That’s me.”
The Metalmamemon walked to Titania and the rookies, stretching his extremities. “Did you say Sonia is in here?”
He asked, looking at Titania.“I think she's that Aquilamon fighting outside!”
Veena raised her gaze to look at the giant red bird. The crumbling walls now allowed them to see part of what was going on outside, the two birds going at each other with brutal slashes of wind and using their beaks.“S-Sonia…?”
Agner’s eyes widened, looking at the two birds fighting. Then, a smirk was drawn in his face. She had become so... strong.
Once Titania took some steps towards the place Ronda was previously at, and after throwing some words at her, she would notice the artist just… wasn’t there anymore. A stain of paint was splashed over the ground. What kind of magic did the Effecmon use? Where was she now?
As Titania expected, Tip had reacted to her presence. However, as soon as he tried to attack, his spear of energy was drawn back. The Aegiochusmon seemed to be in a lot of pain just by being in this form. He fell to his knees, holding his head. Blasts of energy started being expelled from his body, being thrown everywhere.“Watch out!”
Agner placed himself in front of the rookies, using his cannon to obliterate all of the debris coming their way. The group of digimon also helped, using their own techniques to get themselves out of harm’s way.
Sadly, this was everything this tower could withstand. All of the digimon at the upper floor could feel the ground splitting below them, the whole tower wiggling before every piece of the structure started to plummet into the ground. Each and every one of the digimon, except for those who could fly started falling off the edification.
As he slid down in one of the boulders that were previously part of the floor, Agner caught sight of the ground. Given how height they were, they still had a long fall ahead. Not too far from what used to be the base of the tower, the Parrotmon fight his lover was standing. Right below him, Sonia could be seen. The bird was piercing Sonia’s body with his claws, trying to kill the eagle. This was bad. Quickly, the Metalmamemon turned towards Titania. “You! Please put all of them to safety!”
He squealed, referring to the rookies, while the tower kept crumbling in multiple pieces. In this chaos, Tip and Ronda were nowhere to be seen anymore.
After asking this favor from the fairy, Agner propelled himself off the boulder that was plummeting to the ground, and started jumping among each of the rocks that were falling, trying to get closer to Sonia’s position.
Once he had shortened the distance, a roar made the whole forest vibrate.“SONIA!”
Sonia, whose eyes were almost closed now, slowly feeling how the Parrotmon’s claws took every bit of life out of her, opened them up, wide open, just from hearing that
voice. The voice of the one she loved dearly.
That single call was all that was necessary for the bird to wake up. To try to give everything she could give. That same feeling that went through her body when she evolved, got to her. It didn’t matter when her group had managed to find the Metalmamemon. As long as Agner believed in her, as long as he remained there by her side, she could do this, she could do everything
“You can do it!”
The voices of the rookies, as they were being saved by Titania, got to her too.
They all believed in her. Whether she could or not, didn’t matter anymore. She had
to do this.
A burst of fire engulfed the two birds, growing bigger and bigger with every ticking second. It was coming from Sonia. She was letting out a scorching barrage of fire, that just swirled around the Parrotmon, trying to burn every bit of his data.“Y-You…”
She started speaking, having trouble to do so, caused by the claws piercing through her chest. “… You brought us here. You separated me from my friends. My family. From… the one I loved. And that’s why… I will never…”
She coughed. “I will never…”
As the pieces of the structure kept falling apart, Agner issued one last shout. A shout that was accompanied by all of the rookies' voices. The whole Bayou gave the Aquilamon a single order.
Wrapping her winds around the Parrotmon, Sonia was jutted upwards, flying through the sky, as if she was heading to the moon. Her body, holding Parrotomon’s integrity, turned into a Phoenix, one made out of nothing but fire. Once it reached a height even bigger to the one the tower had, before being completely destroyed, the Phoenix just raced to the ground, falling at huge speed.“I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!”
The voice of Sonia now resonated through ElDoradimon. When the Phoenix hit the ground, it just vanished into a burst of fire, while the Parrotmon’s data exploded into millions of bits.
Sonia, a Falcomon now, just laid unconscious on the ground.
It was over.
For the habitants of the Backup Bayou and the Mangrove, the nightmare was finally over.

It turns out, Sonia's loved one had been free already. He was the one that shot that pesky Effecmon! "She is, she's out there trying her hardest for you." Titania replied. While she was expecting an attack, she wasn't expecting it to come from Tip succumbing to the apparent pain that maintaining the form of the Green Aegiochusmon was. She went to shield Veena by performing her Tornado Gamba attack to send any stray blasts of energy, or falling debris to a place that wasn't near them.
Other than that? That was it. The tower was collapsing, and Titania, and her charges were all just...falling! With a flutter of her wings, the Kazemon nodded at Agner, and took off, making sure to snatch each and every one of the falling rookies and get them to safety. While the Bayou shouted for Sonia to keep fighting, she was trying to get the Rookies all to the ground, and when they finally reached it?
Titania turned to watch Sonia deal the final blow to Parrotmon and end a nightmare for the Mangrove, before the form of Kazemon fizzled, and Tinkermon fell to the ground.
...It then hit her that Tip and Ronda were nowhere to be seen. Neither were the Psychemon. Even though she was barely able to move from exhaustion, Titania let out a -furious- yell.
"SOVEREIGN. FUCKING. DAMN IT."
