Bullets flew and Ayaka drew her blade, stepping forward as she did to intercept the bullets mid flight. Metallic clanging echoes in her ears as she blocked two bullets but the third hit her chest. Ayaka winced in pain and tried to ignore the flare on her chest as she took another step forward.

     She longed to use her semblance but thought against it, still taking some more time to ease the fatigue. It wouldn't be forever, but in battle mere seconds felt like minutes, and minutes hours. Around 30% left was all she had to deal to win the fight but numbers didn't equate to skill. She took enough damage, enough time, with one opponent alone. There was no need to stall and be patient unlike in larger battles. All she needed was to win.

     Leaping from her lower stance, Ayaka sheathed her blade and drew her spool in one swift motion. She spun, lashing wires out as she closed in and spread the weapon out like metallic tails whipping towards Akel. The wires weren't taut, as they weren't bound, but they did present a threat. Binding.

     Even if Akel would block with her sword the wires, numerous in number, could possibly get caught. If she dropped the sword they might tangle on each other if they hit Akel. Ayaka doubled up on the attack by using her semblance, mimicking the trajectory of the wires as bands of aura formed behind them to push forward and offer little more than threads of silver and white in her opponents immediate vision.

[Wires - (damage from impact[slapping or minor cutting) 7% total.]
[Aura wires - 7% total (similar damage)]

[Aura - 59%]
[Fired up. Slight fatigue]

Diana had been in the workshop for about an hour this morning. Mainly going over maintenance on Eclipse, not that it needed it as she was in here a few times a week double and triple checking each part. Still she disassembled it, cleaned it, and applied a thin layer of oil to all the moving parts, she hadn't actually dueled since last time so the blade was in no need of sharpening meaning she finished a bit early. Enjoying the zen of just working on things she took out a scope design she had been working on and continued developing it rather than head back to the dorm.

A few of the students that had been there when she came in had already left though there were two that didn't seem to be in too much of a hurry. Diana recognized the man as Smokey a fellow first year, though they hadn't spoken directly. The woman, however, was a complete unknown. Diana kept shooting glances over trying to figure out what she was working on but couldn't. As the morning waned a few students had come and gone, and as more joined there seemed to be a group forming around the unknown woman. Not able to keep her curiosity in check Diana packed up her weapon, put the scope in her satchel and headed over to the group.

Following a bit behind Tieren she was close enough to hear him call it a Hoverboard, which she could confirm for herself moments later. Having seen who had been working on it Diana addressed her directly "That's incredible, really well done" she said with her typical warm smile.

Kisha responded with a pleased smile to Billy's statement, and would have liked to continue talking about the cake, but it was probably better that she didn't. Especially considering the braggart factor.
"Salt is a natural flavor enhancer, you just have to watch that-" she cut off mid sentence as the door opened and another person walked into the room. And she seemed to know Leona.

"Ah, so that's your teammate?" she asked Leona before turning on tiptoes to the newcomer, "The name's Kisha, nice to meet you, as Leona already said, we're making cookies and- ah-" she cut herself off again as she looked over her shoulder at Leona to see her...Stirring. For a moment she stood there. Quiet. Ookkkay, at least it is well stirred. But still, poor batter... She personally was very sensitive when it came to wasting ingredients, or food in general, but she managed to keep the comment about it for herself.

With a barely audible sigh, Kisha turned back to the faunus. "You're welcome to help... Uhm..." She looked away, embarrassed. Leona had said the name not ten seconds ago and she had already forgotten it? She really had to work on her memory.
To put it simply, this match had drawn Prism to edge of her seat. Literally. Once Smokey had smashed through the ice with Calen, Prism had sprung to her feet. The hyperactive hummingbird faunus was literally at the barrier of the arena, bouncing on her heels with her hands on the wall as she watched with baited breath as she'd watched the two disappear underneath the water, then a third as Billy followed, and then finally a fourth as Setsuna himself dived. To say the entire arena had been on edge hadn't been inaccurate - it's not everyday the action's literally taken where the cameras couldn't follow.

All they could do is stare at the hole in the ice, and steadily watch the aura counter on the side of the ring tick downwards.

She'd burst out cheering for the fledgling knight when Setsuna had reemerged from the icy water with Billy in his arms, dumping the woman on the sidelines before diving back in after Calen. Watching Calen literally shoot out of the water like a cork had made actually make him snort, and some dark part of her had found a certain amount of vindictive joy in watching Calen be used like a baseball bat - but he'd managed to stop it short with his semblance, leaving Prism to bury that weird feeling with her loud cheering for her friends.

She could at least wince in sympathy as Smokey attempted one last all-out attack, watching him knock himself unconscious with his own gun. She'd managed to get a concussion with it in it's normal form, she knew the gun's kick - she could only imagine how badly that hurt while in volleygun form. Calen's last few clumsy swipes combined with the wide spread of Matchstick just kicked Billy's aura into the red, and with a loud cheer the hummingbird faunus had literally leaped out of her seat, her updraft kicking in and hovering several feet above the stadium as the victory went to Aztec. Winning was fun, but it was even better to see her friends win.

Now all she needed to do was go congratulate the two on their winnings, maybe take them some hot chocolate, and casually rub Calen's face in the fact he spent most of the match clinging like a burr to Smokey.
Saffron knew it would be unreasonable to expect every throw of hers to hit but putting so much force behind her last one it was disheartening to see it completely miss. Still, the weapon being in the air did finally give Saffron the opportunity to use the second stage of her semblance. Expecting a kick Saffron's guard wasn't fast enough to block Justice's slice which struck hard against her armoured stomach. Half doubling over Saffron managed to duck under Justice's slap and used her lower position to launch a savage counter-attack.

Three quick hatchet strikes aimed at Justice's core just as he locked his feet. This frontal assault was assisted with the boomerang slamming back re-aimed and augmented thanks to Saffron's semblance. Putting out so many attacks did cause Saffron to overextend herself leaving her open for a counter attack if Justice wasn't overwhelmed by her attacks that is. It was a risk that the Faunus often took and although it often leads to a lot of pain it ensured even if she would go down she would never be taken lightly.

Aura: 84%(7% from Slice)
Semblance: 70%, 6% expended
General disposition: Increasing Ferocity

Not-Quite-Supercharged Boomerang 5+2%
3x4% Quick Hatchet strikes

Hatchet 1: Wielded in Saffron's left hand. In Boomerang Form.
Hatchet 2: On the ground to Saffron's right. In Boomerang Form.
Hatchet 3: Wielded in Saffron's right hand. In Hatchet Form.

Leo's semblance is still Calculation.

Leona almost drooled when she saw the cake. "I'm almost intimidated by that cake, it's so lovely." She said with a giggle. She nodded for a while until Kisha said salt. "Why would I need salt?" She was quickly distracted by Chantou's entrance. "Oh! Hello Chantou. We are making cookies! It was going to be a surprise for our team, but I guess you can have an early cookie once we are finished baking them." She said as she spilled some batter on to the floor with vicious stirring.
Billy swung her hammer and missed? But it was the perfect setup!? It would have been Smokey's last hurrah! No matter, it was "go time." I would be team fighting at it's finest. She had been attacked by Calen's Glave as she tried to block it with her hammer, only to get her hands cut up. As she looked to him to give her a clue on what to do next, she heard him say something about firing his gun only once. She sighed and tried to jump out of the way only to get blasted in the back by ice. She spun around to scream at Smokey, only to see him knocked out. "You idiot." She said defeatedly as she went to pick him up and drag him off the stadium.

Aura 13% OUT
Energy 50%

Semblance inactive
