Unstoppable force, meet Sildyu.

As I believe I’ve said on a couple different occasions, don’t f*ck with an archmage. In this case, we have something explicitly stated as being nonexistence in a handy spherical package being handled, and indeed shoved back, by Sildyu.

Now of course, there are reasons for this, namely you’ll note the spell flares around her hands which observant readers will recognise as being of the Abjuration school colour, which specialises in the destabilisation and destruction of opposing spells. In this case, Sildyu is using that magic to gain physical grip on the sphere, which being a summoned object as opposed to a natural one can be interfered with such a method.

Though as we can see, it’s still no mean feat to handle a sphere of decimation. I’m at the end of my planned pages at the moment, but I can assure you very readily that what happens next gets to be pretty damn awesome. Here’s hoping my artistic ability is, at long last, up to the challenge.

  1. So, question. How fast is the orb moving? Cause it seems odd that she doesn’t just move…

  2. @Linkhyrule5 Even if the orb is sitting utterly still (which the carpet being torn up the way it is, I doubt it) advancing with it seems…less then wise. Because even if that Abjuration does grant her quite a bit of control and motion over it, it’s still being shredded by that orb at a guess, so if she advances rapidly, all of a sudden her hands go missing. Now, if you meant dodge it? Yeah. I am kinda wondering about that to. Is there something direly important behind her, or is she trying to make a point?

  3. I think you’re both underestimating the potential velocity of an object that feels absolutely zero drag from the atmosphere that was, formerly, around it.

  4. Well, from the way you drew it, my mental picture was of a gradiose, majestically slow moving black hole. No motion lines or blurs, so…

  5. Ordinarily, there would be lines and blurs, yes, but the distortion effect of black hole-type phenomena make it very difficult to show them.
