Mary laughed, a wild sound that bubbled from her lips as she dodged the first of Tabitha's responding spells and cast a few of her own back. She was excited for the opportunity to play with Tabitha and she was excited that the woman was taking her bait.

She ducked behind a particularly wide evergreen and gathered her thoughts for a moment. Tabitha was certainly dangerous and her mental defenses even when surprised were proof enough of that. Mary knew she couldn't fight easy because she wouldn't stand a chance if she did. While she didn't necessarily expect to "win", she knew she could do pretty alright.

Shoving her free hand into her potions pouch with the Mirage Chamber potions, she reached for a bottle of Dizziness Draft. While it wouldn't be as effective since Tabitha wouldn't be directly drinking it, the fumes and whatever managed to splash onto Tabitha would certainly produce some lightheadedness. Probably. Hopefully. She hadn't actually experimented much with dueling with potions this way but had high hopes that they would, theoretically, work. Certainly it was dangerous to brew such things while breathing the fumes that came off them then.

She took a breath and peaked around the trunk of the tree, aiming carefully for Tabitha as the woman snuck through the woods, and throwing the bottle of potion at the woman's feet, shattering the glass and releasing the Dizziness Draft.

"Stupefy!" she added, hoping to knock Tabitha back more efficiently that way.

    Tabitha was surprised, automatically dropping into a crouch and pulling all her long limbs inwards and dropping her head down in order to shield it from the assault - it wouldn't do to get knocked... more

      • Are you playing tricks on me?Tabitha Hawthorne, Sat Oct 20 10:51
        It wasn't the potion that affected Tabitha first but rather, the spell. It hit in her in the stomach while she'd been distracted with guarding her nose and mouth against the potion fumes. This, in... more
        • Me? Never!Mary Brooding, Wed Oct 24 22:49
          For a moment, Mary felt pretty clever. Her narrowed garments meant ducking out of the way of the first spell that Tabitha shot off at her fairly straightforward, particularly considering that Tabitha ... more
          • You'll tell me anything. Tabitha Hawthorne, Sun Oct 28 17:10
            Tabitha had made a mistake. The mistake being that she was becoming complacent and wasn't taking the duel too seriously. It was one thing to duel in the real world, when it was a matter of life or... more
            • Oh, you think so? Mary Brooding, Sun Nov 4 20:03
              Mary gasped as the very real sharp of an arrow nicked her bicep. She'd done well to avoid the others but her stomach knotted when she heard her sleeve tear and looked down to find hot blood on her... more
              • Oh, absolutely. Or I can always make you tell me.Tabitha Hawthorne, Sun Nov 4 20:36
                Tabitha was both confused and alarmed at the sudden appearance of a lot of things that definitely hadnít been programmed into the room - including the small rabbit that seemed intent on hopping... more
