Terra's choking. Her demi-god physiology is keeping her conscious, though it hurts like everything.

A column of earth shoots up between them, breaking Gar's hold on her as she rolls outta the way.

Her words are still a good weapon though. Salad-head was always good for a lotta talk.

"Thought you mighta been one of the smart ones. Dick had something to prove. Kory was an airhead. Donna was all 'whatever ya say, Dick.' Tincan was stuck in moping mode. An' let's not go there with Raven."

She throws up another group of earthen pillars, trying to trap him.

"But you mighta been something."

He slips through a gap in skink form.

"I am!" he yells back. "I ditched my lying, deceptive user of a power hungry lunatic, and found someone the complete opposite to share my life with!"

He laughs, and this one's not as friendly, more of a laugh at Tara.

"And you were so pathetic, after getting out of your slavery in Hell with a sliver of honor, to fall right back to where you DIED. A worthless shell, used to bribe assassins with, among others no doubt, to con with, and scheme with."

He changes into an emu, and jogs a short distance from the columns.

"And now you tried to con yourself a life. With your ex no less. As a martyr to the Titans yourself, back from the dead honorably, when you really died crushing yourself by accident in the murderous rage you created from your insanity."

A pause, pity in his voice.

"You're pathetic Markov."

She screams out in rage and throws another volley of rocks his direction, not giving him time to rest or gain his bearings.

But Gar's still coming.

Gaining speed, dodging most of the rocks, pelted by stones, he knows where to circle to now, making use of cover when he can.

"See, that's your main trouble. You hate the truth Tara. You love lies. Lies are your best friend. You can shape lies. You can't shape truth. You can adjust lies by adding more lies. Adding a lie to a truth just makes it look worse."

He carefully avoids any open areas.

"And you know what you'll end up dying with Tara?"

You can hear the icy harshness of his words.

"You and your lies. What a life that was. From nothing to something to nothing again."

A pause.

"Hope you like this path, because on this planet, on the road you're on, you're pretty much screwed."

He doesn't smile. In fact, the next thought makes him sad for her.

"Here lies Lying Manipulator. Died alone."

She laughs. "I double crossed death, idiot. And I'm pulling you all to hell. Killed one already. You and beastiality-chick wanna be next?"

She creates a moat of lava around her. "How about 'Gar Logan, died helping the powerless and pathetic.' Hey, you get to go like the rest of Doom Patrol, right?"

A guttural growl escapes his lips as he shifts into falcon form, soaring up, the lava heating the air, helping his flight. as he circles her.

"They died, but they died together with honor! Helping the weak makes us more than the nothing you've become!"

He laughs bitterly.

"Hell! You never changed! You just lied and deceived all your life!"

He circles with purpose.

"And you're not laying one nail on 'Rora."

His eyes narrow.

"I'm making sure of that."

And he dives for her, shifting into human form two feet before impact, slamming her down with the weight and force.

Terra thought she had seen the extent of what Garfield Logan could do during a brawl.

She hadn't even been close.

Terra knees Gar in the gut and rolls away, delivering a counter-punch to his temple to stun him.

No time for smart-ass jokes. This guy's charging like Deathstroke on his not-off days.

He shakes it off, springing into a crouch, following up with a solid footsweep to get her off balance, ending with a blow to the gut.

He's definitely defending his loved ones to the best of his ability. Hell, that was a warm up.

She brings up a rock dome that surrounds their battlefield. Keep his sorry green ass from flying off. He wants it that way? She'll oblige for now.

Even though he's probably pumped up with a ton of anti-toxin, what she gave him might just slow him down enough...

The rock she hurtles towards him explodes in mid-flight - sending tiny, needle-sharp fragments towards him from the back.

Quickly shifting into rhinoceros form, he avoids quite a bit of the shrapnel, but the rest impacts, either lightly sticking into the tip of his skin, or with some chunks, ripping holes in his body.

Wincing, he shifts back into human form once again, brushing the bits barely in his skin off, the fragments clattering at his feet.

He looks into her eyes with a hint of a "nice try" expression.

Dashing for her, he changes mid-run into a cougar, speeding for her, leaping at her extending his claws.

Terra manages to sidestep just in time, and Gar plows headfirst into the wall.

Groaning, he shifts back into human form, holding his head, unsteadily shifting in the rocky rubble.

He notices he actually knocked the rubble around himself from the wall, some kind of clay.

He must have bit his cheek pretty well too. He can taste the almost copper tang of blood, some of it on his lips.

Terra snarls. "Just DIE already!"

She tries to slam him against the wall with a sandstorm.

Squinting, hand over his eyes, he gets up, pushing against the winds, headed towards her bit by bit as his skin is harshly grinded.
