    Everything was going swimmingly thus far. Cyanna and Erosa did their assignments to a satisfactory degree, allowing Parsley the freedom to walk through the ship undeterred. Eventually, she found her way to a large door.

    "Hm." She walked up to it and looked it over, in search of anything that looked like a keypad or anything like that.

    There is a keypad on the side of the door.

    All over the ship, Erosa split to cause havoc in every way, shape and form. Mother Erosa tearing bulkheads apart with her bare hands and simply charging her way through walls, Adult Erosa slipping around in Hunter-Killer and sabotaging equipment, Pupa Erosa straight up carpet bombing with maws as she pranced along and Larva Erosa biting into the meaty tail of the lone Arcosian.

    Worst of all however, was Baby Erosa. The child id was a perfectally innocent but odd sight to find in the middle of a spaceship on fire........but she was a killer, flying through the air and assaulting crew members, tearing ones to ribbons, blasting others with a beam from her mouth and generally putting the fear of children into anyone stupid enough to get near.

A sentiment that seemed to show in her voice when she looked up and responded to her alternate self; perched already-triumphant upon her throne.

    "It is not ... likely, no."

    Ishtar struggled to her feet. "Yet and still, I have already committed to trying. You know as well as I do that means my path is set." Energy crackled between the Oni's palms then, and a massive torrent of electricity split the difference between them, as Ishtar attempted to knock her from the Throne.
    And again, she does just that. The Goddess is blasted through the throne and back into a far wall. Getting up, she dusts herself off.

    She, and the real Isthar were both gone, disappeared in a flash of light. In their place was a stupefied Super Saiyan. Stupefied and incensed. "Coward," she snarled. "COWARD!!" In her anger, she fired a tremendous blasts at one of the ships, though not the one that Parsley and the others were on.

    She streaked into the air where all could see and hear her. "I transformed for a reason! Who wants to die first?!!"

    The Arcosian bast her away while several of the Oni manage to battle back her other versions. However Erosa’s taken out half the crew at least.

    Perfect. The keypad was on the side of the door. Usually, that would have meant she would need to utilize more drastic measures, as guessing the combination was far too time-consuming unless she got lucky the first few tries.

    However, she had just the technique. A variation of her Observational Focus that she had been practicing and training for the last while. It was a means to peer into the past by measuring and analyzing the lingering latent ki that was in the air. As it was manipulated -- either used or brushed aside -- it left a shadow of sorts, a shadow that Parsley could see. To her, it would be taking place like a moving image, as if she was there watching it first hand.

    She breathed in and narrowed her hyper-focus on the keypad. She detected and analyzed the linger ki around it to form an image of her mind of the last time someone keyed the code into the keypad.

    Seeing as how Erosa had, on her own, already disabled half the ship's crew, at least, Cyanna shifted her spirit forms, her ghosts, into invisible and set them off on a new task. The objective, find a weapon or something similar that she could use against them. The Little Thief is back in action.

    Sarada noticed Alt Zaofan surrounded by several people and smiled. They weren't likely as strong as she would have hoped, but they would do nicely. First, though, to weed out the chaff and the undeserving. Someone as strong as her needed to fight the strongest of the strong, not run-of-the-mill nobodies who weren't worth Zaofan's time, much less hers.

    She extended two fingers, a crackle of golden energy emitting between them. An arc of what looked like electricity jumped from her fingers and down onto on of Zaofan's opponents.

    It was a suped-up version of Agony Matrix, which she decided right then and there to call Descent into Misery. But unlike the former, the latter wasn't restricted to just one person and was far more unmerciful. The golden energy jumped from her first target to another, then another, and another until nearly all of them were tethered together by the same agonizing chain of pain. Further, for each one that was tethered together, the collective pain they felt was cycled through each other and multiplied by that amount.

    "If your mistress has an eye for talent, you'll remain standing," Sarada mocked. "If not, then die."

    The Deputy grunts as gravity increases around him, but he snarls and starts powering up to overcome it.
    "Looks like we're popular."

    With Marduk focusing on the Deputy, Charco chose to pounce at the opportunity, closing the distance to throw a barrage of punches and kicks at the Oni. Perhaps this would prove to be enough of a distraction for the Deputy to escape the crushing weight of Marduk's spell.

    Unbeknownst to the teenager, parts of his aura were hardening, becoming jagged pieces of glass-like constructs.

    Parsley closed her eyes and allowed to focus to fade. That was the first time she had done that in a practical setting, and it was incredibly disorienting when it ended. A thing she would grow accustomed to over time, she was sure.

    At any rate, she had the code, and wasted no time inputting it into the keypad. She moved to stand off to the side, just in case there was someone on the other side.

    The beam connected, and for a moment Ishtar felt a flicker of hope as her Alter was blasted through her throne and into the far wall. Yet, again, for as many times in as many blows; the Goddess of Ruination seemed no worse for wear. Even seemed to be relishing in the moment.

    And the last shred of hope died within Ishtar then when she realized that she was going to die here. Even worse than that however, was what the Goddess of Ruination said when she finally spoke.

    Doppelgšnger.

    Was she ?

    They had suffered the same loss, that much was true ... and from the divergence of their decisions afterward one had grown strong enough to stand largely unchallenged. The other, was her. Yet something in her gut told Ishtar, that her alter was wrong. Though the only way to find out for sure was ... was ...

    Yes.

    But that was too dangerous, wasn't it ? Yet alone as she was, and all but resigned to a death she saw as inevitable ... she couldn't help but feel that it didn't matter. The others were gone from here -- wherever here, was -- and the things she had seen in the White-Gold Room were merely a confirmation of what she'd dreaded since she had ended those few million lives; a thing that was personified in the personage before her.

    The inevitable.

    So give yourself, a night to remember ...

    With a slow exhale in the frigid air, Ishtar finally looked up at the 'Goddess'. "Tricks ?" She replied, with unspoken resignation. "No more tricks.

    Another blast of lighting tore across what remained of the Throne and slammed into Alternate Ishtar yet again. Though in the end, the effect mattered little but for the distraction it provided.

    It was Ishtar's turn now.

    "Hakai."
