(dismissing the Overedge swords, Archer summons his bow and leaps into the air, nocking and drawing Caladbolg)
I am the bone of my sword.
(still in midair, he packs Caladbolg full of explosive energy and looses it towards Fate on the ground)
The giant Pokemon starts absorbing the sun's rays, firing them in a large beam at the Metal Gear.
Fate takes a moment to gather herself... and then sees the exploding arrow headed towards her. She jumps into the air herself, barely evading the shockwave.

(Archer lands back on the roof, this time nocking Hrunting)
(it glows red as it is packed with magical energy, and he takes aim at Fate)
Fate points Bardiche at Archer, and starts gathering her own magical power. A yellow magical seal appears beneath her, and lightning starts arcing around her.

(the red arrow that he just loosed is fast)
(and it's a seeker)

Almost simultaneously, Fate unleashes a powerful beam of lightning magic in Archer's direction. Despite this, Hrunting's speed is such that her Thunder Smasher stops it just short of her, before swatting it aside on the way to Archer.

Steel is my body, and fire is my blood.
(Archer is forced to dismiss both his bow and Hrunting as he steels himself for this next attack)
(his red shield diverts the lightning spell, though the shield itself sustained notable damage and a cut appears down Archer's torso)
I have created over a thousand blades.
(as Archer focuses on Fate, a dozen blades appear in the air and hone in towards her)

The Metal Gear quickly shuts its mouth, and the beam of sunlight collides with the thick armour plating on its head, leaving a sizable burn.
REX quickly recovers, and starts lumbering towards the giant Pokémon.
Bardiche transforms into a Reaper-esque scythe, with a blade of crackling lightning energy, and Fate uses it to quickly dispatch most of the blades in turn, dodging the couple she doesn't cut down and cutting them down afterwards (having learned her lesson about leaving Archer's swords in play). She then draws the scythe back...
...and slashes it at Archer, despite the distance between them. The blade of the scythe seems to detach, flying at Archer like a crackling boomerang.

Unknown to Death...
(Archer furrows his brow as his focus shifts to the scythe blade)
...Nor known to Life.
(an identical scythe blade appears by him and flies towards its twin, hopefully deflecting it and knocking it out of the air)

Sorry, I didn't specify, but the scythe's blade was made of magic energy - could he still do that?
A pissed-off Fate holds Bardiche solemnly before her in a two-handed grip, and starts gathering even more magic energy.
I can sense he is gathering magical power for something strong. I had better prepare my own endgame.
"Arceus, Corcus, Aegis..."

Magic energy exists in the Nasuverse, so I don't see why not. Also, since we're not really in the present world, I think Archer shouldn't have an issue with materials for the sake of this game - it's what I do in the Room. (Uber-weapons like Ea are still impossible, though.)
(Archer's focus returns to Fate, his own expression solemn)
Have withstood pain to create many weapons.

The Groudon flexes its arms, surrounding itself in a crimson aura.
"May the spears of thunder fly straight and true to the target..."
An even larger magical seal forms around Fate, the lightning all around her. Meanwhile, smaller magical seals start blooming around Archer.
edited 18th Aug '14 1:01:12 AM by MicoolTNT
(Archer sprints across the roof and jumps into the air, hopefully avoiding whatever the seals are doing)
Yet, those hands will never hold anything.
The seals follow Archer, and once he is in midair, gold rings bind his arms and legs. The lightning continues to blaze around Fate, and now she is surrounded by a veritable swarm of her lightning orbs.
"Borear, Zorear, Browsal..."
Finish your chant next post, mine is nearly finished.

(Archer is unfazed by the binding)
So, as I pray...
(cue the music if you wish)
Unlimited Blade Works.
(heatless fire expands from his body, and he and Fate are transported into his Reality Marble◊)
(many of the swords within view start floating into the air, four of which sever his bindings and the rest of which are aimed towards Fate)
edited 18th Aug '14 1:08:41 AM by foxmccloud4387
"Photon Lancer: Phalanx Shift!"
"Protect me! Destroy the Target! Fire!"
The swarm of lightning orbs starts to shoot towards Archer, some spiralling off to intercept any blades heading towards Fate, the rest flying directly towards Archer, a huge Magic Missile Storm.

(Archer summons more and more and more swords to be launched into the air, intercepting Fate's danmaku barrage with his own)
(he summons Kanshou and Bakuya to his hands, using them to deflect whatever of Fate's orbs get through)
(as this goes on, even more blades fly to attack Fate from behind and below, aiming to override the defense of orbs)
Cyberna would be so proud of us.

Gritting her teeth, Fate summons more and more balls of lightning, keeping up her barrage...
Explosions fill the space between her and Archer...
But she starts to weaken, the barrage slows...
...and then she can't do anything about the blades from behind and below, and they start cutting gashes in her Barrier Jacket... and skin.
Aye. For her memory!
Oh God, Fate vs. Cyberna... I should actually write that fanfic... so... much... Danmaku...
Oh, so would Marisa.

(Archer himself keeps up his barrage of swords)
(but he's burned through enough of his Master's backup, and now he himself is tiring)
(he might not have enough Prana to sustain UBW for much longer...)
Fate condenses her last few energy orbs into a spear of light, and with a defiant sweep of her arm and cry of desperate rage, flings it flying at Archer, hopefully powerful enough to deflect any sword that tries to stop it...
...and her cry becomes a scream of pain as a couple more swords land more significant hits on her, and she is forced to her knees, her magic nearly depleted, the last of it forming instinctive shields to block the swords flying at her as she huddles, head in hands, her spirit as broken as her body.

(Archer manages to make a copy of the magical spear, which he parries away with a swing)
(but the force behind Fate's throw, combined with Archer's wounded arm, cause him to get blown back)
(his own Prana running low, his Reality Marble fades away, returning the two combatants to Mos Eisley)
(getting up, and showing exhaustion, Archer approaches Fate, a final sword forming in his hand)
edited 18th Aug '14 1:35:42 AM by foxmccloud4387
Fate looks up at Archer, her eyes innocent and tear-filled, but her tears dry and her gaze turns disinterested... until her eyes widen in horror.
"Mother... Mother, I'm sorry! I'm sorry!!!"
