Nope, Natsu is far enough away that he doesn't need to worry about the water.
He does, however, stay on guard and keep a close eye on the seed, having learned from Sho's experience.
-another tree sprouts-
Natsu is well clear, and the fire around him is building...
-Villager rides another Lloid Rocket towards Natsu and swings with his axe-
"Fire Dragon's Sword Horn◊!"
Natsu flies straight at the Villager, head-first, using all his gathered firepower to turn himself into a blazing human missile headed straight at him.
-Villager is hit, and is literally sent flying out of the area-
Natsu lands back on his feet and skids to a halt.

I'm not quite finished with Zombie Idolo. You think a boss-type can be beaten in such an anticlimactic manner?
Yet another dimensional disturbance occurs, this time above the cafe but far smaller and more stable than the last and out comes Zombie Idolo and the deformed, corrupted Raiding Heart.
Awwwww... It reallly sucked that we had to run of energy just when we got the atmosphere going!

I just gotta finish a couple of things and then I'll be in to really kick this thing off.
There is a sudden clap of thunder.
A golden bolt of lightning blasts across the sky, like the blade of God himself slashing across the heavens.
Blazing with righteous fury, Fate zigzags across the sky at impossible speed, charging straight at the monstrous machine that dared to kidnap her friend.
A blade of pure wrath bursts from the black device clenched in her fists, and she attempts to bring it down on the fell construction.

In an equally fast motion, Idolo brings up its blade to block Fate's Scythe; the fragile and ramshackle limb managing to stand firm as steel despite the impact.
Oh hi Fate-Chan and Bardi-Kun! Me and my old master missed you soooooo much~!
Raising Heart then reared back and attempted to swat Fate away like a bug before following up with a volley of mana-metatron shots from the claw-tips
Sparks fly from the impact point, and Fate dodges away from the swat, weaving between the Metatron bursts to come to hover before the evil mech.
"I am only going to ask this once."
Golden power begins gathering around Bardiche, which switches back into shooting mode. A golden Mid-Childan Magic Circle forms.
"Where is Nanoha Takamachi?!"

Subject Nanoha is right here.
Once again, a portal to Idolo's Vector Trap opens up in front of its chest; once gain showing Nanoha Takamachi, but with the crystals having grown over her mouth; most likely to keep her from making too much noise. For the first time in days, the glazed-over and crushed look in her eyes changes to that of utter fear; fear that her friend would suffer the same horror she went through.
We had to do that since her screams were getting very tiresome, too much of a good thing and all that.
As Nanoha wildly struggles against her bonds and sheds tears of horror, the Portal closes shortly afterwards later.
You will never have her back. Because Idolo is Immortal.
"Hold on! I'm going to get you out of there, Nanoha!"
Fate fires one of her most powerful Wave-Motion Gun attacks at the mech, a blazing bolt of magical lightning zigzagging at it.

Raising Heart's hand comes up to block the beam of magic, the lightning-infused energy washing over the gravity barrier generated by the Metatron in both machines.
Ah that's no good Fate-chan! You gotta try a bit harder than that!
Just as Raising Heart said that, Idolo throws a mini-burst shot at Fate; the orb of compressed space capable of exploding with the force of an artillery shell if it hits something.
Fate grits her teeth as she spirals off again, dodging the Burst Orb. "Bardiche, Cartridge Load! We're gonna need all the power we can get!"
Yes, sir. Cartridge Load!
A surge of golden power flows through her aura, and Bardiche ejects something that looks like a spent shell casing.
"Scan that thing for any sort of weakness! If it's got Nanoha-chan's mana and its own power... which I'm fairly sure it does... it's got to be stronger than us. We have to find out how it's holding Nanoha and draining her! If we can break that bond, we can save Nanoha and weaken that monster! Scan its mana flows!"
Yes, sir. Precision scan engaged.

The scan reveals that Nanoha is held inside "compressed space", a pocket dimension created by the Metatron powering Zombie Idolo and that whatever Metatron is; it's somehow giving Idolo the energy signature of a living creature, in effect making it "alive". But further scans have to be made later as Raising Heart is getting ready to attack!
The device fires a twisted version of Axel Shooter, an enormous barrage of homing crystals shooting out of its twisted form and converging upon the Lightning mage like a swarm of angry bees. supersonic angry bees.

Fate Flash Steps far away enough to charge up her own attack, adding another Cartridge to the power she's already gathered:
Plasma Lancer: Legion Shift!
Not as powerful as Phalanx Shift due to less charge time, the Bardiche shoots a still-respectable number of golden energy spearheads to intercept the shots. The enhanced shots are far less numerous than the Hellion crystals, but as they're from an upgraded move, they can take out several each before fizzling out.
The energy scythe bursts out again, and Fate cuts down the remainder of the barrage, only a couple getting through to cut gashes in her barrier jacket. Fate hovers on the spot, panting.
This thing is too powerful... but I can't let it keep Nanoha. I have to save her!
Hey Fate-chan! Lookie here!
Idolo suddenly disappears... Before reappearing behind Fate and.. Bopping her on the head with Raising Heart.

Fate receives an unexpected Tap on the Head and spirals downwards, losing control of her flight spell...
...but somehow manages to not get knocked out, thanks to Heroic Willpower...
...forcing her bleary eyes to stay open, she stabilizes the flight spell just enough to land on her feet...
...and falls straight to her knees. And then on her face.
Bardiche falls out of her hand.
"No..." Her hand scrabbles for the Device.
Oh my! I didn't know my own strength! Sorry Fate-chan! That was just supposed to be a love tap!
Idolo teleports, getting it's grubby hands on Bardiche.
Idolo "accidentally" lets it go falling towards the ground.
Idolo's not gonna destroy it of course. But if you want to bring in reinforcements... Now's the time.
edited 21st Sep '14 1:16:23 AM by Questor
She lost Bardiche after she was on the ground, it should be within arms reach of her...
The only multi-avatar I have... currently has its other half indisposed, if you catch my drift. Fate's gonna keep fighting a desperate losing battle until she gets help, or she can't anymore.
edited 21st Sep '14 1:18:26 AM by MicoolTNT
What about the Wolkenritter? Idolo and Raising Heart are basically just toying with Fate right now.
edited 21st Sep '14 1:21:24 AM by Questor
I stopped watching part-way through A's, I don't know their capabilities well enough and don't want spoilers. I could probably give her Arf, but that alone wouldn't be enough.
Anyway, what's happening about the Bardiche?
edited 21st Sep '14 1:24:43 AM by MicoolTNT
Idolo got a hold of it but "accidentally" let it go right in front of Fate. They're basically telling her to get up and keep fighting because its amusing. But when the other players show up, she'll get her day.
