** Alternatively: Lisa and crew pick on Marcy despite knowing she's a powerful witch, but they're just hazing Marcy like their sorority normally does to their new entrants. Then they drug her, take embarrassing pictures of her, blackmail her, then release the pics to the Internet anyways to "put that prissy witch in her place". Marcy snaps... only for Lisa and crew to reveal they had superpowers all along and can shrug off anything Marcy could throw at them. But all this was a [[RevengeByProxy scheme to get back at Marcy's boyfriend for dumping Lisa]], even though they know he is a BullyHunter with PsychicPowers they are not immune to.

** Lisa is full of self-loathing, but cannot bring herself to commit suicide, so she's provoking Marcy in an attempt to get Marcy to kill her.

** Marcy breaks and tries to kill Lisa, but manages to control herself and redirects the fireball into a nearby tree. Afterwards, Lisa and Marcy reconcile and become friends. Marcy soon discovers that she can't produce another fireball that big without duplicating the situation, resulting in Lisa becoming her sidekick in order to intentionally tease her into full power when the need arises.
** Marcy is well aware that while she ''could'' kill Lisa any time she wanted to, that doesn't make it ''right''. So she decides to look for a more reasonable solution to the problem. Until she finds one, however, she'll have to put up with Lisa's teasing.
