"Can you trace them?"

Permalink

"The seals? Yes, but it'll be slow, my eyes aren't optimized for that."

(It's definitely reacting to plan smash, but trying to go around reveals more of the field.)

Permalink

"Don't bother, then. Just keep watch." Tasara adds her capabilities to the smashing.

Permalink

She does so - deflecting a few more genjutsu in the process, there's traps here but that doesn't explain all of them - 

And the barrier eventually shatters, reflecting their energy back at them.

Permalink

"-Whoops." This is startling but not overly inconvenient.

Permalink

Tasara throws up a shield in time to prevent any blowback from reaching their backup.

And then they're moving forward again.

Permalink

There's something dark, black on black in the shadows, bubbling up and reaching lightning fast for Anneia - 

Permalink

She blasts it with a burning beam of light.

Permalink

It - sort of flows out of the way.

It's below her now, too, quiet and almost invisible and fast, and behind her, and above.

Permalink

aaaAAAA bubble time okay now there's a bubble of the light around her.

Permalink

Itachi and Kakashi have been forced to retreat back, and aren't having nearly as much luck avoiding it - 

Make that none. The shadow pours itself into Itachi's skin, bubbling up through her mouth, and her red eyes try to meet one of the magical girls' gazes - 

Permalink

Tasara thrusts out a hand and a blindfold snaps around Itachi's head.

Permalink

The bubble around Anneia brightens, expands, touches the tunnel wall-

and flares out along it, rushing ahead and behind, coating the ceiling and floor, bathing the area in brilliant light.

Permalink

Tasara reaches and and pulls Kakashi back to float next to her.

Permalink

It turns out she can still scream.

And she's not as good yet at genjutsu that doesn't require the sharingan, but if they can see her she can trap them, enough to beat even Kakashi, and if they can't she can't get past Kakashi but might be able to disorient them - 

(She hates this, is screaming in her head and out loud, but her chakra isn't hers anymore, her body's this monster's - )

Permalink

It's very bright in the tunnel now.

This should not be happening to Itachi. She's too young for this. But is happening and there's nothing she can do about except try to make it less bad. Operating under the assumption that the bubbling shadow she saw is acting more like a poison or an infection than a mental attack, she spins off a gobbet of energy that forces itself down Itachi's throat to purify her of foreign substance.

Permalink

It's winding its way pretty tightly into her chakra, and it can be purged but with difficulty - 

It tries to make Itachi wrap both magical girls in an illusion that'll make it look like they're attacking each other - 

It's pushed back enough Itachi can think a resounding no.

And then it flees, and she collapses, gasping.

Permalink

Anneia winds back her distributed flare, and goes to help Itachi.

Permalink

But Tasara holds out an arm to stop her from approaching.

"Itachi?"

Permalink

" - I think I'm me."

Permalink

"What's the last thing you remember?"

Permalink

"I don't have any memory gaps. You pushed a ball of energy into me, and it drove the foreign chakra out."

Permalink

"All right." She pulls her arm back.

Permalink

Anneia moves forward to heal Itachi's burns. "Sorry about the, uh, stuff."

Permalink

"It's - alright. I apologize for getting caught."
