(( Due to lack of movement in the RP and the fact that I have only one thing to do to move things along, I'm going to be interrupting the tournament. Whether or not we decide to continue it post this event will be at your discretion. ))
Too much time had past for me to just remain sitting here, drafting impossible spells. "I won't wait any longer!" I shouted at Quincy, which was more along the lines of talking to myself. "I've been waiting for this since I figured out the pattern, having to delay any longer will make me go even further insane. I'm executing the plan now, with or without my rational mind."
"You're being an impatient idiot." The hallucination chided, being quite insulting. "If you try to do it and the participants realize you've pulled one over on them before they are properly fatigued and roughed up, you'll have to deal with a lot more resistance. Are you really willing to kill anybody in your way to reach your goal?"
"They already killed Fiora and you." I added, nearly out the door already. "I do not want anybody to die trying to fruitlessly stop me, but I will not hesitate to kill any and all who get between me and revenge." I left the small library, although Quincy caught up instantly since he's just an illusion to myself. There weren't many paths around the tournament grounds, but almost anywhere could be accessed by utilizing the Labyrinth. Since I had summoned it, the living maze bent it's halls to suit my destination: the main arena.
The hyperbola-shaped colosseum stood taller than most like it, my viewing pavilion being near the middle height-wise. I watched the battle between The Vampire and the Robot, their movements slow and non-hostile. It was more along the lines of watching two old friends catch up, but I didn't really have the time for that. Snapping my fingers, the cloth 'shaders' (( I wasn't really sure what the word for this was. They are large pieces of fabric designed to block out the sun. )) ripped away, revealing their frame were parts of a specially crafted magic circle. All five arenas had this, although the center one was the largest obviously. It technically was not the world's largest arcane array, since the old interior wall of the Central City had an engraved runic pattern that would summon spiritual guards to protect the inhabitants. Either way, this would do perfectly in order to cast a single ritual. People in the audience slowly drew their attention toward the rigging above them, the enchanted alloy rods glowing with energy.
"Sorry to interrupt your duels, my warriors, but I couldn't wait to display the fruits of my labors." I announced, mimicking it to all of my clones and having the air carry our voices so anyone on the grounds could hear. "Long ago, I traded my ability to sleep for a single spell, one that would open a doorway out of Aer. That is how I escaped. Unfortunately, it is impossible to cast it again without the perfect energy to area ratio, so returning has proven difficult until now. Those pipes are part of a grand spell called the Infinity Focus. It allows me to completely control all of the magic that it overlaps. This includes every participant's, every spectator's, as well as the natural forces. Inside of this zone, I am the controller. So, to hold up my end of the promise, I will open a portal back to Aer. Some of you, starting with the furthest section of the crowds, will begin to feel your energy drained. Don't worry, for you will be hosting my return to Aer. I made a promise to destroy the Tainted, but what better way is there to remove these weeds than by digging up their roots?"
With a flick of my wrists, the true show began. Lights danced around the audience, slowly sucking away the untapped energy they possessed. I wouldn't need the power of the stronger few, such as the Fallen Angels, until my connection began to become more and more unstable. The focus shimmered into view, swirling with the potential power I had at the end of my fingertips. Unfortunately, I'd never get to utilize this strength for myself, but opening the ultimate rift would be good enough for me. Having the winds support me and carry me up into the air, a deep blue circle appeared just above me. Keeping this open was the responsibility of the audience. Flying through it, I could feel the air humming with power that was always lacking in Eternia. I almost got whiplash just from the atmosphere difference.
"Titaint." I declared, now in the Divine Dimension. "You will die today."
