(Continued from here...)

After tea, of course, and a quick trip home to collect what he needs, Horvath returns to Anna ready to make a trip to the astral plane. He's returned with a bag, and spends a few minutes puttering with dried things in jars and tins, making a sort of potpourri in a stone bowl that's already blackened inside. He does pull a heavy magic tome out of thin air, consulting it briefly with reading glasses perched on his crooked nose.

"All right. Chairs, or floor?" The book is gently vanished back to wherever it came from, and he looks for a good patch of open floor space for the ritual circle.

Anna watches the preparations with curious interest. Anna's dabbling has been instinctive and fragmented. She helps where she can, clearing as much of the furniture out of the way, and keeping an eye on the preparations.

Can your leg handle the floor? I can pull the chair over.

The trick with the ring and fire is impressive, and and she raises an eyebrow before dragging a chair back over for him and then sinks down to the floor, minding her toes and hair to make sure she's in the circle.

From: [personal profile] dusk_to_night
Anna breaths the smokey air deep and then waits. Part of her worries that this isn't going to work but the time she feels she should question it, she realizes that everything around her is shifting and she's sinking. She wants to panic but at the same time it doesn't quite register that anything is wrong. Panic and detachment. She's focuses on that, trying to make sense of how both of those could exist in her mind at the same time. When everything settles and it feels like there's ground under her and thing have stopped shifting, she picks herself up slowly, making sure her limbs all work and then starts to look around.

"It... feels like the house I grew up in."

Nothing around them however look anything like a house. The world in Anna's head growing solid around them looks like rain-blurred landscapes from paintings, never quite coming into focus or being uncomfortable.

"Except..."

She can't quite place the unusual feeling. There are shadowed shapes in the distance. Moving through the rainy landscape.

"She's here too. Somewhere."

It's disorienting. At a distance the brushstroked world is partially in focus... nearby it is just thick swashes of colour without real form. Once she's gotten used to the shift in reality, she can appreciate it a bit more. It is pretty here.

"If I'd known we were having visitors, I'd have prepared something."

The voice behind them is slightly sharper and cooler than Anna's. There's less vulnerability there and a sharper edge. The same athletic runner's legs, the same red hair but Ana's eyes belong to a much older woman.

Anna's world peels back, like tearing away paper, Ana's her presence re-writing the landscape.

"Technically, just for the record I'm not actually apologizing for anything."

It's half under her breath though and Anna instinctively keeps close to Horvath, but she's standing straight and looking straight at her double. Neither of the women seem especially pleased that the other is here.

There are only slight differences in the mannerisms but it's clear enough that both have a strong will. Analise however is confident in her superiority here but regards Horvath with a knowing look, acknowledging the slight bow perhaps.

Fridays are my quiet day ironically.

Anna is stubborn and there's a streak of pride. She stared down a fairy queen rather than give an inch and she's drawing upon that stubborness again. The trouble is that Anna and Analise are the same person. Ana has that same refusal to back down.

"This little game of tug-of-war is temporary." Analise replies. She tilts her head slightly and looks past him at Anna. "Once I've regained all my strength my shadow wont be necessary. It is all just a matter of time."

"Your lectures do not impress me, old man. I was an old witch before I was murdered. I had discovered the secrets of immortality and I never regretted using them, except for the attention it brought from the envious. This shadow of my self is an extension of that old power."

She gestures to Anna who is slightly, visibly annoyed by the label.

"Her purpose and task is done. The only thing left is for her to fade back into being a shadow. If she does that, I wont be forced to unmake her completely."

You'd think people would learn. T_T

"Yep. I've had kind of a shitty life but I'm not going to conveniently die so you can steal what's mine. I have something good and i'm not letting you take it away. Or from me. I earned it."

Anna has been accused of having a bad attitude. She lifts her chin slightly in defiance and for a moment there's no subtle difference between them. She's stubborn and uncooperative and those labels have always been applied fairly when she's dug her heels in.

"You don't see well enough then." Ana's reply is directed to Horvath before she turns her attention to Anna. It's against her better judgement of addressing her directly, but she does. "You will be unmade then. This is not a choice you get to make."

Oh I know. But it's frustrating and sad!

"She was made to buy time, not to live and grow! She should have died years ago. Long before... all of this!"

Anna knows that's true. She knows she should have died thirteen years ago... Except that something had gone wrong. She'd been tortured and murdered, and she had died... but clearly Analise had never anticipated interference from the undead, nor Wade Wilson's determination not to lose her. They had hijacked the curse through sheer force of will and reckless ignorance.

Ana looks startled briefly when he brings up the matter of 'harm' and she is about to protest that, but closes her mouth.

"She will not suffer. I am not a monster."

"A brief discomfort. Nothing more."

How much she believes that is of course, debatable, and Anna doesn't believe it at all.

"You are not killing me! I've died too many times to put up with this! If you want a life, go get one of your own and stop trying to steal mine!"

Thread Jack Giggity!

Out of nowhere, a dashing, handsome maniac in red spandex appears. He's holding a pair of tighty whities and looks confused, but not as confused as someone who's just been yanked to the astral plane should be. Horvath, likely attuned to these kinds of things, might sense the piece of An/na's soul that is merged with his own. That would explain why he was drawn here, to this calm, reasoned mediation.

"WHOA!!! Hey!! You guys!! A little warning before we do the witchy woman thing!!! I was just in the middle of giving Doc Ock the gnarliest wedgie he has ever had. I swear, that man is so super wedgy-able. I think he was pretty much invented for Spidey to have someone to give wedgies to. And pants. I was pantsing him at the same time. I've always wanted to give a man a wedgie and pants him at the same time. Wait..." He holds up the underwear and looks at it. It's slightly torn and stretched. "How did this come with me? Man that must have been uncomfortable. But now his winkie is on display for all of Times Square to see. Heeey, maybe this was the best wedgie ever!!! High five on an epic tag team wedgie! Eh? Eh? Don't leave me hanging here guys."

Somewhere, Doc Ock is not a happy camper. And neither is Spidey, since Deadpool just completely upstaged him on the Doc Ock wedgie front.

yay you made it!

From: [personal profile] dusk_to_night
Anna's less about to protest and more about to step forward and punch Ana in the face for the way she's talking. She's tired of hearing she's a shadow. She's tired of hearing she should die. Other people have said that to her and she hasn't forgiven them for it. She isn't about to forgive some part of herself for suggesting it.

But Wade appears and both women snap their heads to him, attention drawn away from eachother and to the rambling about someone's underwear.

"Wade!"

Ana can only feel a vague sympathy for Horvath at this point. He has no idea what he's really gotten himself involved in.
