Pride is stroking one of her whips, eyes focused somewhere in the middle distance.

Permalink

Avarice just looks bored.

Permalink

Wrath's body is visibly knitting itself back together where she was wounded.

Permalink

The shadow takes a closer look at the knitting wounds. Or at least it's on her personal space again.

Permalink

"Scuse you," Wrath says to the shadow, and jerks towards it again, teeth bared in what might've been a grin on anyone else's lips. Hers don't seem quite able to make the right shape.

Permalink

The shadow does not move away. Nor does it say anything, it just stands there.

Permalink

"Rude."

Permalink

"Says you," Lust skips over to drape emself against Wrath's side. "Seriously. Anyone know where S is?"

Permalink

"He's fine if that's what you're asking-"

Permalink

Pride's words are cut off by the sharp report of rifle fire. Whoever is shooting is a very good shot. And they aimed at the person with the lightning.

Permalink

The person with the lightning falls to the ground.

The lightning balls start to... unravel, tendrils of electricity uncoil like springs and connected with each other. Soon enough a side of the wall explodes.

Also there are arrows falling from the sky.

Permalink

Wrath laughs. "Good old S, never let's us down. Good shot and great light show!"

Permalink

Another shot goes through Wrath to where the shadow is.

Permalink

The shadow... fails to react, it might not even have noticed that it was shot.

Speaking of shadows... that's sure the shadow of something above them.

Oh, it's a boulder that was thrown where the shots are coming from.

Permalink

-Oh, that gets a reaction. Wrath does not sound pleased.

Permalink

Pride looks concerned and then-

"I didn't know S could move that fast. He got out the way."

Permalink

"Sometimes self-preservation wins!"

Permalink

A victory for self-preservation!

Which might be a debatable victory because the wall of electricity is still getting more unstable and they see another salvo of arrows coming their way...

Permalink

Until a blue wave emanating from the sky stops them midair... probably related to that blue-skinned man up there, the one with a halo of red-golden light over him.

Permalink

Though, it's easy to ignore the blue man, once the purple man shows up, apparently stepping out of the electricity itself. He grabs Darya and Thecia and steps back into the lightning...

Permalink

...and now the three of them are somewhere else in a floating island.

"By the gods! Are you okay?"

Permalink

Felicianus is there too, suddenly there is a red-gold halo all over them.

Permalink

Darya clings to Theo. "Yes, yes, we're- We're fine. It was just-"

Permalink

The Sins have abruptly snapped back into battle readiness, although they are-

Not immediately attacking? Apparently something is giving them pause.

Permalink

Zephyrinus lets the next salvo of arrows hit them, though he does asks whoever to stop.
