Akane

Sniff. Sniff, sniff. Sniff, sniff, sniff. Aki paused as she snuffed at the air, her large head moving this way and that. A low rumbled escaped her throat as she placed a paw forward, thick claws carving into the soft earth of the forest floor. Leo to the east. An odd smell heading quickly away — almost human but wrong in away Aki couldn’t place. Like the bitter aftertaste of an artificial sweetener. And another smell, near Leo, almost like…

One of the wisps zipped off into the forest, and with a low growl Aki followed after it, her large body weaving through the trees with ease. She slowed as she drew close and praddled to a stop once she caught sight of Leo. She woofed a hello, and once more sniffed at the air. She turned suddenly in the direction of a nearby bush, her fur standing up on end as she released a low growl.

Leonora

Leo hopped to her feet as her best friend approached through the trees, taking a moment to brush the dirt and leaves from her dress, then banished her half-broken wings. She offered a lopsided smile, but she was distracted by the faint song.

"Wrong music," she murmured as she petted Aki-wolf's snout. "Bad song goes, but differing. Of... not like any hearing before."

Aki seemed to sense something too, for a low rumble came out of her throat, body turning to point at a nearby bush. Not the song, then? Something near?

The bush rustled.

"Who is it?" Leo called. Aki couldn't talk right now, only bark, so Leo needed to do the talking. She was okay with that. The bush rustled again, but there was no response. Leo took another step forward.

From out behind the bush, a spindly figure rose, criss-crossed scars etched across his pale, grey body. His face was soured, lip curled into a snarl, but his gold eyes were fixed wide and staring.

"Mother doesn't like you."

His voice was softer than one might think from such a gnarled man. Timid, almost, with a wavered edge. He pushed the bush aside, pulling a long knife from his hip. The hilt looked carved from bone.

"You hurt my... brothers and sisters. You hurt my mother too, by hurting them," he said. He sounded like a child trying to act menacing. As he stepped into the tiny glen, he waved the knife, almost in a warding gesture. "You shouldn't follow us, or we'll kill you."

Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Akane

A person, no a not-person, a Grimm not-person? Could people be Grimm? Why would a Grimm-person be so quiet? Grimm were big and loud! But he smelled like a Grimm, and his eyes glowed.

A low murmur escaped Akane’s throat as she brushed her snout against Leo before her gaze returned to the timid Grimm, her ears quirking at mention of a ‘mother.’ Was that the distant ‘not-quite-Human’ smell? Though, whatever curiosity Aki had vanished quickly with the appearance of a knife. A Grimm with a knife.

Aki took a step forward, her claws biting into the ground. Her maw opened and she issued a loud rumbling snarl, rows of sharp teeth glistening in the low light.

Leonora

The odd Grimm-man didn't like Aki's growl, not one bit. He jumped back at the sound, almost dropping his knife (what sort of Grimm had knives?) and stumbling over a bush. After a few seconds of looking like a silly-willy, though, he put on a menacing expression and stepped forward again, knife pointed outwards.

"Don't try to follow us. I mean it," he muttered. The air seemed to get colder. Leo half-expected to see her breath fogging up in the air, but it wasn't the air that was cold, was it? No, it was her. She was cold, almost shivering, and feeling... feeling...

Afraid.

There was a fear-song in the air. It overpowered all the other feelings, brought to the forefront in waves from the Grimm-man. He was fear. Full of it. Screaming it into her head. Did Aki feel it too?

"Aki, don't follow him," Leo whispered. "I want to... be going. Okay?"

Anything to escape this horrible sensation.

Akane

Akane’s fur bristled as the Grimm person stepped back forward with a sudden surge of confidence. Aki felt her body reacting automatically, her legs tense as her shoulders hunched, a shiver of anticipation crawling down her spine as her eyes narrowed and the skin along her snout krinked. She bared fangs again as a different snarl rumbled through her throat, a low coarse sound, a cornered animal issuing one final warning. Her wisps flicked around her, their patterns sudden and sharp, full of unfocused energy as Aki’s body tensed between the uncertainty between fight and flight.

Leo’s words splashed across her like a sudden bucket of cold water from above. Her tail swished out like a buffer between the Grimm person and a Leo as she snapped a huff in the Grimm’s direction. She was still a moment before some decision seemed to be decided upon and with a sudden swipe of her large paw she carved easily through the forest’s ground leaving behind an uneven line. With a wary gaze still on the Grimm, she took a step back and barked.

Leo

"Good..." the odd man muttered. After a few tense moments, he lowered the knife, slipping it back into -- well, into somewhere. Leo didn't see anyplace for a knife to go, no sheaths or visible pockets, but the blade was gone all the same. That was a good thing. As soon as it was gone, the tension lightened a small bit, though the feeling persisted.

The Grimm smiled a toothy grin, then began backing up.

"Remember to stay inside the line, little witches. Don't do things that are bigger than you're worth, or you'll attract... unsavory attention." And with that, he turned and ran into the forest. The terrible feeling left as soon as he was out of sight.

"Bad thing," Leo muttered, running her fingers through Aki's fur, "but gone now. All better. Yes? Let us see family safety."

Hitodama

"What are you?" Hito whispered. The monster only smiled, unphased even with Shizue's dragon back to normal, even with Duchess rising shakily to her feet.

"I am the dreams of man made flesh, sweetling. Their hopes and fears, their wants and needs," it replied, teeth clicking with every word. It was shifting again. Its body had began to split all the way down, both sides hanging limply from the widening crack. Inside, more teeth ground and wormed through yellowed flesh, and four massive tongues slithered up from the core, draping around the beast like willow branches. "I am the one who answers prayers, and the one who guides the terrors to your home. All is real, with faith, dear. All."

Silent counting. Mono's voice whispered in the back of her head, their only chance, but enough to give her strength. The girl glanced at Duchess, still rattled, but returning quickly to form. Her eyes were a burning gold.

"I don't know how much longer I can hold on," the woman muttered through clutched teeth, spreading her arms to invite a wreath of flames around them. "A few more seconds. Just a few more."

The monster laughed.

"Seconds won't save you, matron. Give in to futility. You cannot resist in the face of inevitable impossibility."

Duchess glared, then began to laugh herself, the tone cold and derisive.

"Foolish Grimm. I am not holding on to resist. I am holding back your doom."

Akane
Aki rumbled a low murring noise as she watched the odd man retreat back into the woods. Almost immediately Aki’s fur settled back down as the man disappeared from view, as the awful feeling of oppression vanished with him. She remained in place for a few moments, sniffing at the air to be certain that the man was continuing to go away, he was, and once she was satisfied that the Grimm wasn’t going to try to attack them from behind Aki turned back to Leo. She woofed happily, her large tail swooshing through the air with pride from their victory.

She nodded slowly as Leo mentioned returning to her house. She sniffled at the air for a moment and tilted her head to one side. She should get back quickly right? Right. But Leo was on her feet! Feet Leo wasn’t as fast as wing Leo! Leo could ride on her back! But that would be weird right?? But Leo was a friend! A decision made Aki crouched down and one of her wisps zipped up as if trying to show Leo where to sit.

Mononoke
Mono scarcely slowed as she charged through the front door of the studio into the dull light of the nighttime city. The concrete of the sidewalk scratched at the soft skin of her bare feet as she stumbled to a stop but she paid it no mind. She had more important things to do. The mean auntie had given her a mission to do! She just hoped Hito was ready.

“Back! Danger!” Mono called to the few people who were walking by. Mono swiped her hand up, the space in front of her warping and tearing open into a bright red portal.

“Hito! Auntie! Hurry!” She called.

Hitodama

The girl flexed her mind, and her bubbles erupted into action, enveloping her and Dragon and flinging them through the gate. She hit the concrete hard on the other side, bare skin stinging where she rolled, sky momentarily erupting in a flurry of bright blues and dark blacks before she finally came to rest on her back. She laid there unmoving, merely staring upward and waiting. Counting.

3. 2. 1.

Agnes

"My-" the creature began, but Agnes was already relaxing, fire coiling and arcing around her body in larger and larger bands of light. It glowed red, then yellow, then blue, then a blinding white, sharp smell of ozone crackling outward from the center. Her eyes flashed once. Twice. Then again, staying a brilliant gold that shimmered and danced behind the energy.

"This is your grave, monster," the Duchess muttered, waving her arms outward. "As they say in America... die, motherfucker."

The studio erupted in a pillar of plasma. Metal warped and melted, stone burnt away, waves of heat spreading -- then immediately stopping, leaving only a charred lot in their wake. The studio and Grimm were nowhere to be seen. Agnes fell on her knees, breathing heavily, gold eyes flickering and vanishing as well.

Mononoke
“Sister!” Mono yelped as Hito fell through the portal and landed on the concrete sidewalk. Shizue followed her through not but a few moments later, catching herself with the palms of her hands before she hit the ground. Shizue rolled over onto her back with a grimace as she looked back up at the studio. Mono placed a hand on Hito’s shoulder, but before she could utter another syllable, a great pillar of flame tore through the top of the building and momentarily turned the night into day.

“Girls, are you okay?” Shizue asked, blinking the light out of her eyes as she scrambled her way back up to her feet. “Ryoko! Check on Phoenix!”

Hitodama

"No need to check on me," came a voice from behind them. She turned, then gasped. Duchess stood before them, the golds and reds of her costume draped around her, wreathes of fire wrapped between them as naturally as the cloth itself. A halo of brilliant white air flared around her, but as Hito watched, the light subsided, shrinking back behind the woman until it vanished completely. For a moment, it almost looked like wings.

"Your costume, it's-" Hito said, then looked down at herself. Loose, baggy clothes billowing outward, providing a relieving amount of coverage over her bare skin. She began to laugh, and realized she couldn't stop, turning in to hug her sister tightly as laugh after laugh forced their way out of her chest. "It's over. It's actually over."

Duchess snorted.

"There are plenty more Grimm out there, many doubtless like the one we fought tonight. This is not a time for celebration, it is a time for alarm! Grimm that can plot, think, speak? It is..." she glanced at Shizue and quickly shut her mouth. Maybe some celebration, however modest, was warranted.
