You can grab the copy/paste code here:

Insert the following Lunatic Mode code into your skill’s notebox. Change the values to reflect your game’s settings.
<Custom MP Cost>
// Store the number of times each skill has been used by the user
user._timesUsedSkill = user._timesUsedSkill || {};
user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id] = user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id] || 0;
// Get the number of times this particular skill has been used.
var times = user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id];
// Calculate the extra MP cost.
var extraCost = Math.max(8 - times, 0) * 2;
// Add it to the current MP cost.
cost += Math.ceil(extraCost);
</Custom MP Cost>

<Custom Execution>
// Store the number of times each skill has been used by the user
user._timesUsedSkill = user._timesUsedSkill || {};
user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id] = user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id] || 0;
// Increase the number of times used for current skill
user._timesUsedSkill[skill.id] += 1;
</Custom Execution>

Enjoy!
