Ascian: *takes control of Nora*
Nora: *freezes and gasps*
Nora: *dark energy swirls around her as she faces Alphinaud with a blank expression*
Alphinaud: Nora... *sides steps to the right and summons Moonstone Carbuncle to his side*
Moonstone: *goes to Alphinaud*
Emerald: *looks at Nora noticing who she wants her to attack*
Nora: *looks at Emerald* Go
Emerald: *let's out a small cry and attacks Moonstone*
Moonstone: *cries out and begins fighting*
Alphinaud: Nora please don't do this
Nora: *steps closer to Alphinaud preparing to cast Ruin III
Nora: *blinks as the light returns to her eyes but it quickly goes away*
Alisaie: *blocks Ruin III*
Nora: *tail bristles and she growls using Deathflare*
Alisaie & Alphinaud: *get blown back*
Y'Shtola: Thancred! *begins casting Blizzaga*
Thancred: *uses quick shot*
Y'Shtola: *casts the spell*
Nora: *jumps back and summons Bahamut-Egi*
Ascian: Your no match against your own Warrior of Light it seems!
Urianger: We must get her back
Y'Shtola: We shall but the question is how?
Alphinaud: *takes a deep breath in and runs to Nora*
Alphinaud: *slams Nora down to the ground, pinning her as he whisks away her Arcane book*
Nora: *glares at Alphinaud*
Bahamut-Egi: *uses Akh Morn*
Y'Shtola: *summons a barrier to protect the two*
Alphinaud: This isn't you Nora! Wake up! This Ascian has no control over you and I won't let you go down like this!
Nora: *struggles against Alphinaud* Let.. Me go!
Alphinaud: *wraps his hands around her wrists and stops her from moving her legs* Listen to me! Your much too strong to be controlled, I know you!
Nora: *struggles* YOU KNOW NOTHING!
Emerald: *comes back and starts using wind slash*
Moonstone: *takes the hit and body slams into Emerald*
Emerald: *cries out and escapes from Moonstone, running to Nora*
Ascian: *increases the power*
Nora: *groans and shouts as the dark energy spreads*
Thancred: That's enough! Alisaie come join me!
Emerald: *cries out and takes the Arcane book out of Alphinaud's hands*
Nora: *reaches her hand out to her Arcane book* Give it to... Me!
Emerald: *tosses it to Urianger*
Urianger: *grabs ahold of the book* Thank you kind friend
Alphinaud: (I need to distract her somehow) ... *hugs Nora tightly and pulls her close to him* Stay with me
Nora: *struggles to get out* NO!
Ascian: *bleeds out and disappears*
Alphinaud: Nora? Oh Gods please don't be dead!
Y'Shtola: She's merely sleeping
Alphinaud: *entangles his hands into her hair softly* Thank the Twelve
Alisaie: That was brave, rushing head in, did you even think on that?
Alphinaud: Honestly, not at all
Nora: *holds onto Alphinaud as she shifts a little bit*
Alphinaud: *smiles* I'm glad your safe, now let us bring her home
