    "Acamoth." she tries for flat but it fails. "As in Acamoth. Acamoth?" Eyes flying to Star, then back at the leviathan.

    "Did you know...did you think...did you hear...?" Fear and excitement, twin, frying as her words tumble out, she staring as Star is staring but her gaze keeps flitting, the great beast, the portals, the crumbling plane.

    "We're going to have to chase after it aren't we?" she asks again, tone a stark difference, from what it had been before.

    Note: She's a question asker.

    "I don't know,"
    he answered quietly as thoughts locked away that house of cards and slid out. "Like, for real. I have no clue. I'm not, like. Uh. Super up on my book knowledge. Flying blind."

    He's a doer. And what he really wants to do? All those portals. They're doors, real magic doors, leading who knows where. But they really should, shouldn't they? Something's been bugging him, something he's kept on the low-low, but maybe it's time to go-go. If he was an angel, wasn't that the epitome of a demon?

    And what's with all the statues, yo? In Sacramento? What's that about.

    "Um, yeah. You sure? You good?"
    Heck, is he? Feels like a good way to start a bad story was 'So I was chasing an Acamoth and...' "Yeah. Okay. Not too close."

    Blue-green eyes fixed on the swirling mists and imagined himself half-way between here and the monstrosity, seeing if thought alone would move him.
    Cloaked spells, not overt magical res. Scrut for deets.

    Briar Rose only knows of the Acamoth through rumour and conjecture: monstrous demons linked to the Abyss; an insidious danger to the Awakened. She has no frame of reference for the leviathan entity moving sedately through the mists. It could be an Acamoth. It could be something else...

    Star quick and nimble mind is pulling in information from everywhere. The Escher-like structure they are standing on appears to be falling through space, yet is getting no nearer to a destination. There is no impression of wind pushing against their bodies yet the mists broil and seethe around them.

    Will and Word combine as the Mighty stretches forth his mind and imagines himself in a new setting...

    Star may make a Resolve + Gnosis roll to make shift across the space. He only needs one success in this part of the Temenos as there is nothing actively holding him back. How Star reaches his new position in the Astral Sea... I leave up to you West

    Its Astral Space!

    Right. Rightrightrightright.

    Can someone excitedly tap their feet in Astral, cause this chick is~ have a nervous leg bounce in Astral Space, because yeah. Doing that.

    "Flying blind." she repeats a cheap echo. "Sure. Kay. Right."

    Right. Rightright - etcetera

    "So, we're gonna have to follow it. Figure out what it is, if it is y'know. And stop it." she didn't add a because, because, well. She assumed the chinchilla badass would know why because. "No sweat. No problem."

    Right. Etcetera.

    She's excited and scared. Scarecited. All nervous twitchy and zingy and there is hella danger and oh wow. She wants to chase right after it.

    The Thyrsus flings herself off of the Escher-y structure, aiming to plummet. Aiming to fly.

    Wings of sweet-briar, and feathers made blood by brambles, bloom from nothing but her own Will, holding her aloft.

    They flap, once, twice, and she soars!

    There are a few places he can't hide.

    The Squared Circle. Here. Remember the first time We made it? Oh, the litany of profanity. And he'd laughed. The thought brought a smile to his lips and his aquaster was angelic as he moved, seeping golden light and leaving the impression of downy feathers and soft flapping. Then he was there; halfway between the edifice and the leviathan, spreading arms and legs like a skydiver and sparing a glance to look for the Circle.

    Star doesn't jump. He doesn't fly either. Both movements are much too crude for the Angel.

    He is in his element.

    And he soars! He flows. He dances on air! Trailing feathers and golden light as he simply is in one place and then another.

    Compared to the Guardian, the Apostate Briar Rose simply drops like a stone!

    There is no rush of air; no clawing of rugged aerial fingers tearing at them.

    They float down, the mists billowing and shifting around them. Silence.

    The leviathan rolls on below them, slowly growing larger as they fall... closer? Beyond the great creature the dream-like landscape of Sacramento appears to get no nearer.

    The Angel spies the Circle, flashing brightly in between the interstirces of the Astral, as if it is both there and... not. But when he see's it, the old cathedral seems to shine like a beacon. Yet even he can't actually make out how he could reach it from his position. The Circle is an ephemeral dream of sanctity and safety.
