Behind the smile and glances, The Queen of The Mad could indeed sense the rigid stiffness of River Sage's body. The act was but a farce to her as the Twisted Maiden of Lunacy had a knack for picking up on the emotional cues of others. It's why this lil' demon was a slick-tongued devil when she wanted to be, after all. So, Mana had the simple goal of eventually making The Danava of Dysphoria eventually laugh and loosen up. As, while she was as sweet as cinnamon, this chick was becoming as stiff as cardboard. And that -- wouldn't do!
But -- damn -- she was beat to the finish!
With a smash, clash and soft laugh; The White Winged Demon uttered out a gentle chuckle at the scene of Phobos crashing straight into the little dense shield she hap-haphazardly created. At the expense of the familiar's sense of physical well being, it seemed The Royal got a cackle out of River Sage.
Therefore -- she started clapping with joy and quickly gave a hug to the fellow Danava in arms! "Good, good. I knew ya' could laugh, s'ugah. You should keep doin' that. Makes the world vivid and more beautiful~"
As jovial as ever, the tone of Mana's voice was loud, southern and outright lively. However, there was a slight twinge of that nasty emotion known as "regret". Perhaps, MAYBE, she had been a DASH TOO harsh on the poor boy and gal!
After all, she only desired for them to stop cryin' since it was ruining the atmosphere -- and not call her an ass. Twas' just suppose to be a motherly "tap" across the ass to get the point of discipline across. The Asthavon's were made of rigid stuff, and she expected the lil' minion to be able to handle his own, afta' all.
The mind was filled with nothing but blah's, groans and sighs before The Queen gave a roll of the eyes and a motion of energy soon surged within after said point. Through a flick of her wrist, The Demoness internally pieced together a spell of magic meant to take the pools of will within her mind and have it manipulate the spirits in the world around her.
In this way, she would unleash a golden aura around Phobos that was intended to make him loose, cheerful and outright relaxed in this den of monsters and snakes. Indeed, s'ugah, this was a summoning of magic intended to help alleviate the mind and kick back a bit; which is all The Empress ever wanted for all those here~
She just had a foul way of doing it is all~ But the intentions were as pure as one could get with someone this demented and lost in the head! "Ahahahaha, apology accepted~! ♫"
Instead of those words being uttered from the vessel of the true Mana, The Queeny played another childish game and had a shadow of herself emerge behind Phobos and squeezed him into a hug before patting his head as if he were a sick, little puppy.
Meanwhile, the flesh that was the true Mana observed and gave a happy wave of the hand at him as she seemed pleased enough that he was starting to wisen up a bit. There was less of a "crap, child, you are friggin' annoyin'" vibe as opposed to a "I LOVE EVERYONE! NOW COME MAKE FRIENDS WITH ME" atmosphere beginning to bleed from her essence like a gaping hole of fun-tastic delusions.
Indeed, with that manic and insane grin of hers growing larger by the second; those emerald green eyes of her shined just a bit brighter in the darkness of the grey twilight all around them and indicated she was beginning to become amused by this whole ordeal. Which is why she could only laugh just a smudge harder when the fellow pale-skinned Danava expressed her concerns about The Empress of Lunacy's actions being "un-needed".
Oh no. They were totally needed~ But they needed to be taken a few notches dow-- aw who the hell was she kiddin'? Mana knew not a god damn thing about self-control. She just put on a fancy lil' act to show she did. Hueheuheue. "Well, maybe so, but it gets the point across, right s'ugah? As long as yahs' respect me, treat mes' right and loosen up; all will be fine and good~! I'll give ya' the world and you give me your hearts precious loyalty~!"
Snickering like a mad witch, The Danava of Discord then winked at Stheno and then her familiar chum to ensure they were now welcomed here.
And -- because of the fact ol' Sage here finally decided to want to venture forth into the bowels of Demon World with them.
....WHOOP! Exciting stuffs. Enough to make the Demoness give a happy "splee", jump in the air and giggle like a mad school girl. They were finally gettin' to places on all sides and it was about time to leave this lame chump dump and get to the coolest place in existence: Demon World! "Then I'll sign yas' up for the first inter-dimensional train outta' this ratchet place, whaddya say, hmmm sweetie?"
Followin' 'dem words bein' uttered out with the utmost of glee, The Royal Demoness placed each of her hands upon her hips and leaned backwards in order to lick the air around them -- and create a tear in the fabric of reality itself. Caressing the outside of her lips with the touch of that warm tongue, The Empress savored the taste of reality and found it to have a flavor similar to a fine piece of chocolate.
None the less, the taint of her magical energies managed to bridge a gap between worlds and a vortex into The Demon King's City could be viewed from this vantage point. Twas' home sweet home, wasn't it? All the shining buildings, the blood skies, the mighty demon folk and amazing wealth of power and hell could be sensed with just this simplistic hole being forged between these two realms of existence!
Though -- Mana was gettin' a bit ahead of herself.
There was a twitch of the ear as her sense of hearing attuned itself back to the realm of reality unfolding before herself. Apparently, this was turnin' more and more into a party!~ Further guest were bound to come to the show; as explained by River Sage's desire to invite more friends to join them on their wicked boogie through worlds."Go on, go on~ Invite whoeva' ya want, s'ugah."
Giving approval to whatever madness would come next, The Demon Queen would then sit back, relax and enjoy the show as a cloud of pure darkness emerged behind her. In one leap backwards, The Lunatic Danava threw herself into the sphere of shadows and relaxed with a content sigh as she observed all the complex, magical ho-ha that was needed to summon these creatures into the material realm. "'Dem is some pretty plum eyes ya got thar', toots~"
Pointing a lone index finger from her right hand at the creature who emerged staring at The Queen, Mana seemed quite amused by it and gave a hardy cackle in return. For it seems, afta' a hot second or two, a set of twins emerged from the puff of magic around them and The Empress truly paid no mind to whatever was happening to the mist around them. Though, The Green Miasma around them seemed to snarl and ascend itself back to the chain of command as the domiant presence in this area. Since, as the white fog tried its best to subdue the emerald dew, it simply would not back down and it devoured the silver drizzle.
At least -- before The Queeny groaned and retracted the moisture back into her dress."Shhhh. Calm down, baby. No need 'fer that here."
It seemed -- she was talkin' to her energy.
And this energy -- seemed to almost have a mind of its own.
Eh -- made sense. This was a creature of madness. To expect full sanity and balance in this being was fool hardy at best.
At any rate, the aroused eyes of The Empress of The Night fixated their sight upon the arrival of these two Eternal Partners on the field. Twins. Boy and girl. Neatly dressed. So -- cute~
In blinks, the body of the demoness mended itself through the growing darkness and moved at the speed of shade in order to hug, kiss and smother these two creatures in a quick bout of affection that may be quite hard for them to follow. It would feel as if their entire embodiment were caressed by a cold, but loving hand before The Queeny emerged back before them both while riding her cloud of satanic blackness. "Pleasure to meet ya', sweeties~ Ya' two just looked so adorable I HAD to take a bite~"
Resting on her throne of evil, The Demoness would close her eyes, relax and drift her way through the gaping, green hole bleeding out into the world around them. Ready, willing and able to move back into the realms of Demon World. So, when River Sage muttered something about having a question pertaining to her existence, The Demoness grabbed Sage's hand, pulled The Fellow Danava on top of her and grinned"Come with me and you'll find that out soon enough~"
She would not take NO for an answer! With her speed, strength and alluring pull; she was just oh-so-pleased to have her way. Which, even her fellow sibling in blood would feel at that point. As, with a gesture of her hand, a strong wind was meant to knock Stheno into the vortex as well."Ya learned yer lesson and now yah has earned the right to travel with the maddest crew around. Even if I was intendin' to head to our home -- AHAHAHAHAHAHAH~ ♪"
While roaring with demented laughter, another motion of her hand would do it's damndest to have them all sucked into the tear between worlds and send this party group into the depths of The Demon Queen's home for something far more -- intimate and -- fun~
