Chapter 34

Dance of the Fairies Second Half, Retribution Prologue

Sponsored Content

It was there, at a certain special PvP arena .
It’s a basic coliseum style place that’s specifically used for PvP now, but it wasn’t through “One More”; someone started PvPing there and more fights followed one after another, turning it into a special arena .
Since fighting with lots of different people is a requirement to evolving Fairies’ statuses, it’s a situation where throwing yourself whole-heartedly into fights is absolutely necessary, nanode .

Now, this is something that happened at that special arena after a number of matches had finished .
Players equipped for more competitive fighting were there .
One side led a wolf-type Fire Fairy and had a one-handed sword, shield, and wore heavy armor; a heavy equipment fighter .
The other side led a falcon-type Wind Fairy and dual-wielded swords; for the sake of mobility it was a light-armor styled swordsman .

When the two players declared their intentions of opening of a PvP session, the countdown to the battle began, but … .
Around the Fire Fairy led by the one-handed sword player a black aura-like thing began to dimly manifest .
A murmur went through the crowd around the sight-seeing me, wondering what was going on .
After all, this was a phenomenon never seen before in all the PvPs up until now .
I’ve seen several Dark Fairies in PvP but none of them had anything like this completely black darkness .
And anyway, since flames are coming from its fore and backlegs, it … should be a Fire Fairy?1

The countdown continued without a problem and the system isn’t registering an error, so what is THAT? The surrounding people make a fuss .
Like that the countdown approached 0; the PvP began .

Acting like the victory goes to the one who makes the first move, the normal Wind Fairy led by the dual-wield player that isn’t putting out the black aura shot out a barrage of weak Wind Fairy wind magic as cover while the dual-wield player charged in without minding it; the effect is that nothing can come through even without using Arts .
It’s a way to close the distance between opponents by making use of predicting how your opponent will react .
On the other side, the player that led the Fire Fairy still releasing that black aura readied his shield and lay in wait as his opponent charged in .
But, why isn’t he giving his Fire Fairy instructions to provide support attacks?
It’s also unknown why he completely left the Fire Fairy to auto-attack .

When the Wind Fairy’s wall of magic dispersed, the dual-wielder’s sudden strike was warded off … he’s good, those movements could never be mastered by someone who only relies on the System .
Getting his attack turned aside, the dual-wielding player’s balance was destroyed; in this situation you should pursue with an attack, using your Fairy to attack as well in a combo .
… even though it should be like that, for some reason that combo didn’t happen .

… The Fire Fairy, in response to the one-handed sword player’s orders to attack, [Ignored] the orders noda .

If it was a fussy order it would be understandable, since there are a lot of things that would trigger a refusal response from a Fairy .
On the other hand, giving it simple instructions, like telling it to attack or defend, would normally have no problems; actually, out of the 100 PvP battles I’ve watched before, this is the first time I’ve seen a Fairy do this and ignore orders .

No, I’ve seen refusal, but this time it’s [Ignored] .
The time when an attack can’t be done in the situation, even if the relationship between the Fairy and the player is good, the Fairy will make a posture of refusal .
For example, telling it to shoot out magic when it had just shot out magic .
I can’t do it, sorry; that’s the kind of intent the Fairy refusal is supposed to convey noda .
But to ignore means … something like not even wanting to listen to the player master . If it’s something like that …

“I see, so he’s using a Slave Fairy …”

Someone muttered that, and in response everyone around fell silent at once .

The one-handed sword player who had just lost the best chance to attack due to his Fairy’s Ignore fell into a tight spot .
The dual-wielding player’s Wind Fairy took the initiative to toss out magic in order to save its master .
The magic was a magic from the Wind elements, <Shock> . There’s some damage from the small shocks the wind-type emits, but the greatest advantage is a short stun that lasts several seconds; it’s an addition that can daze the opponent, and the more metal parts on your opponent’s equipment the greater the chance for a daze . It’s a magic attack that makes heavy-armored warriors cry .
And the one who took that attack is a one-handed sword and shield wielding player clad in metal armor from head to toe .
When against Wind magic and a Wind Fairy during PvP, it’s a magic that you should never let hit you no matter what .
It’s something that should have been obvious… but with that perfect attack chance it was blown completely out of his mind .

That blunder is … something he won’t be able to recover from .
Under the influence of the temporary stun, his movements are stopped for several seconds .
Dual-wielded swords have heavy attack power, and this wielder is now able to make his moves freely for several seconds .
The results are clear; that is, the dual-wield player’s victory will be the result .
Without mercy against the one-handed sword player who couldn’t move due to stun, the tips of both swords were thrust into his neck; heavy armor has no meaning when your weak points are targeted .
With the transient shattering effect, what’s left is the decisive victory .

Slave Fairy, while it refers to those Fairies treated like slaves, it also serves as a form insult to those players who work their Fairies hard like slaves without compassion; it has that kind of double meaning .

Just from watching from the sidelines I get how horrible their treatment is .
At any rate, it’s not just working them hard; if a Fairy gives a refusal sign that the player doesn’t like, they’ll hit them or send them flying with a kick .
The players who want to get along with their Fairies can’t stand to see such depraved actions .
Because of this players quarreled with each until it became a full out PvP war .

The result is “that” …
In the end, those Fairies won’t help in PvP (maa, that’s to be expected though), to rub the humiliation of being beat up in your face .
But if you want to evolve your Fairy’s status, there’s no other option than continuing to PvP .
And Fairies’ attack powers are raised under the special rule .
In general, it’s a situation where you can’t win if it won’t fight .
It’s karma, na; after picking on your Fairy, the abuse that you dealt has now been brought back onto you .
But that’s not all there is … that’s right, that’s not all there is, noda .


With a red face and glaring at his own Fire Fairy … does that mean he’ll hit it again?
… but that player restrained his hand and took his leave .
So he controlled himself… if you can do that then can’t you avoid using a Slave Fairy from the beginning …

That’s what I thought when I saw that then .
But, I wonder why the one-handed Slave Fairy user didn’t hit it .
I found out that reason when watching another PvP again…
[Will have their egos released 100%]; this is one meaning of that announcement .

This was also written in preparation for receiving criticism .
But if I don’t write the tale won’t go on .
Whatever you say, it’s proper for the player side to get the advantage, but this event was written so the dice comes out 1:1 .

An event with player disadvantage that only rewards portion of the players used to happen a lot in old games; that’s the kind of feeling I was going for .
