Confident in her stamina Saffron pressed on with the assault despite her opponent's evasiveness. Pressing even harder when Mauve took an arm away from her defence to retrieve more arrows. Still Mauve's attack came on, recognising the ice dust from the similar tint to her own slugs, immediately went on the defensive as she didn't want to be locked down by ice. Flipping backwards to her discarded shield Saffron took the arrow aimed at her on the shield but was unable to get her greatsword out of the way in time. Now with both of her weapon's encased in ice Saffron set about breaking said ice, preferably with Mauve's face. Charging forward for a shield bash Saffron was quickly back into the fray.

Mauve easily dodged the shield bash considering the weapons were heavier and bulkier than normal. It was though, quite interesting that her opponent had picked up the shield. That would make things harder for Mauve, shields were trickier to get around despite their large size. Well, more like ecause of their large size. At least that greatsword was back in one hand.

Following her dodge, Mauve only stood her ground, welcoming another attack. She couldnt do too much on the offensive if her opponent both had more strength and a shield, the damned things. But of course hit and run was her preferred style anyway.

Snaping the greatsword down into it's two one hand forms Saffron holsted one while trying to scrap some of the ice off her weapons as she made her way over to her evasive opponent. Exaggerating her work to try to bait a strike Saffron approached with apparent disregard for either her opponent or her safety. Regardless if Mauve fell for the ruse or not Saffron will return to her steady frontal attack pattern hammering away at Mauve's defences. Although visually more similar to her standard weapons than the greatsword the principles of sword and board weren't resulting in Saffron over reaching most of her attacks and letting her shield lag low as she attacked.

Mauve didn't flinch at Saffron's little bait, fully expecting the sudden continuation of quick strikes. Seeing her opponent's shield lag low during this, Mauve dashed in through Saffron's guard once again, taking the entirety of one of the girl's strikes on her shoulder while she used her blunt weapon to strike hard at Saffron's shield arm and a frontal kick with her opposite leg at her opponent's torso. This, however, slowed the 'run' part of her style, leaving her in very close proximity to Saffron for a few moments too long.

Grunting loudly at Mauve's volley of attacks Saffron struggled to maintain her footing. Seeing an opportunity to get off her feet and restrict her opponents manoeuvrability even more Saffron grabbed tight at Mauve's leg before she could retract it and pulled Mauve in for a tackle. If successful Saffron will go for the mount and rain down two handed shield bashes with her sword discarded on the ground beside her.

Mauve took the tackle with a soft 'oomph' and grace-well, as much grace as you can have being tackled. Not good, not good. The absolute worst thing for her would be to be pinned down like this. Also a bunch of pointy pieces of arrows weren't the best cushion. Usually her semblance would've been her way out, but that wasn't an option now. Mauve raised her arm, preferring for it to be hit rather than her torso or god forbid her face. Aura existed, yes, but still. Moneymaker.

Seeing the sword lying on the ground next to Saffron, Mauve grabbed it and thrusted the edge into her opponent's thigh, then letting go of the weapon for the sake of fair play and letting a newly-formed fire Dust arrow join the sword in Saffron's side. Hoping that it would weaken the upperclassman enough, Mauve shoved her leg up and away. If she succeeds, Mauve will scurry away and get back on her feet, determined to not let that happen to her again.

Deflecting the sword swing Saffron put herself off balance allowing Mauve to shake off her mount with the fire arrow. Not being able to hold the grapple as long as she would have liked Saffron is slow to her feet and reclaims the sword her opponent and tried to hit her with. Nodding in appreciation for the show of sportsmanship Saffron advances slowly, with better placement of the shield this time.

With a burst of speed Saffron feints low then spins for a downward slash followed by a quick shield bash. Knowing that she has lost much of the initiative in the wake of the failed grapple Saffron will try to recapture her forward momentum regardless of Mauve's actions.

Still a bit on edge after the grapple, Mauve quite stupidly fell for the feint, receiving the brunt of her opponent's slash using the sword. She was not quite so slow for the shield bash though, scooting back just enough for her to both stay out of the attack's range and take advantage of the shield's position. Mauve held to the top of it with one hand while her blade hand attempts to knock the sword away so she can she use the shield as a temporary brace to slam both of her feet into Saffron's chest.

Instead of once again falling back and waiting for Saffron to make a move that she could hopefully surpass after probably taking some damage like the rest of the fight had been, Mauve continued on the offense, switching the hand her weapon was in to jab the butt of it into Saffron's forearm, then jab the tip into her opposite shoulder.

Saffron's grin at Mauve finally going on the offensive was short lived as her opponent stomped both her feet into Saffron's chest, knocking the air straight out of her lungs. Experience and instinct more than conscious thought helped her stabilise, taking short breaths which wouldn't weaken her guard as much as the large gulps her body was screaming for. Knowing that Mauve would likely be able to get around her shield work Saffron instead held the shield loosely by her side and relied mostly on her sword as a guard. This doesn't mean the shield was useless however, simply more of an active defence rather than a passive one, intercepting strikes like Mauve's first jab and giving Saffron attack vectors which she exploits with ruthless precision.

Now that they had well and truly locked swords and where in such close quarters Saffron attempted to maximse the advantage that provides. Namely how some of her body, her legs, are out of Mauve's vision so closed together. Starting with another feint, this time with her shield, Saffron aimed to stomp her opponent's knee. Aiming to buckle the joint and take full advantage of her superior height Saffron presses on hard and fast.

Saffron struck quick, but Mauve was no slowpoke. She dodged it with ease, not noticing that it was not the main focus of her opponent. Letting out a huff of air as her knee did indeed buckle, Mauve fell to the ground as per the other student's plan.

She didn't stay there though. Mauve dashed between Saffron's legs, hooking one of them with her own and pulling in the act of getting up from the ground. Now behind her, Mauve elbowed the girl in the back of her neck and stabbed her with the tip of the blunt weapon in her back. While she was still turned and perhaps falling if all went according to plan, or even perhaps if it didn't and Saffron was turning to face her, either worked, Mauve formed a fire Dust arrow and threw it at her.

Tracking her opponent closely Saffron managed to follow Mauve's movements and as such deflect Mauve's first strike with her shield. Turning side on Saffron traded blow for blow allowing her opponent's strike to hit home while exploiting Mauve's outward stance for an attack of her own. This gambit didn't pay off as it left her open for fire dust arrow and Saffron stumbled backwards as the heat radiated around her. Choking back a cry Saffron sort to use the resulting flames to her advantage, again throwing her shield through the inferno hoping to catch her opponent off guard.

Still wielding her sword in one hand Saffron will leap forward regardless using her free hand to wrench Mauve's guard open and deliver another stab. Breathing hard Saffron knew she had just likely lost control of the momentum of the battle because of one mistake and was determined to win it back. Old lessons came flooding back into her mind, she may have lost that skirmish but this fight would be hers.

This was actually turning out to be a pretty fun sparring session, whether or not Mauve turned out to be the winner in the end.

Mauve raised her hand to catch the thrown shield, discovering that it was in fact not as easy on the hand as in the movies, not unless you were Captain Vale or something. The strike Saffron'd snuck in didn't really help that either. Nevertheless, it was caught and Mauve used it to block Saffron's stab, then attempt to hit her in the face with the edge of it. Once again for honorable play and the point of the actual spar's sake, Mauve lightly backed away and threw it back at Saffron, aiming at her torso for both easier catching and some additional damage if it hit.

In the meanwhile, she advanced as lightly as she'd done the opposite, not liking to be far enough that her opponent had the reach advantage.

Surprised by Mauve using her shield against her and was unable to protect against the shield bash, smashing against her temple as it passed over. Taking a slight backward step to stabilise herself Saffron gave her opponent the opening to return the shield to sender by throwing the shield back. Saffron's vision temporally blurred because of the temple hit but her other sense were as sharp as ever. Picking up the shield with her electro-sensors Saffron caught the shield with one hand and quickly advanced to deliver a trio of quick slashes. Letting off for a few seconds Saffron grinned widely at her opponent and asked breathlessly. 'You have Ultimate Frisbee in Vale? Think you might have some natural ability for it.'

Saffron also used that time to flip her shield around to the proper grip and advance again, the exchange putting a spark in her steps.

Mauve grinned softly at her opponent's good-natured quip, though she was a bit preoccupied with evading the slashes to reply with one of her own. Which was a pity, lost opportunities to be quippy always were in her ever so humble opinion. Last slash deflected via blade, though it did leave her open for a bit too long, Mauve pressed on with more footwork, lightly advancing forward whether or not Saffron took the opportunity herself and delivering several light kicks to the upperclassman's lower legs, specifically the feet and shins.

During that, Mauve gripped her blade in both hands, one on each side. At first this was simply to put something between her and the pesky shield that could be used to slam into her any second. Then, grip staying the same, she slammed the weapon into Saffron's shield to draw attention upwards while she delivered a more powerful kick to her legs.

Not going to let an opportunity like busting through Mauve's defences slip by without at least attempting to capitalise Saffron snaked in a fourth slash hopefully before her opponent could close the gap. Her forward momentum did leave her legs as open targets for Mauve's kicks and again Saffron felt herself struggle to hold up her own weight and question the wisdom of her heavy armour. Cocking her head in surprise at her opponents opponent's new strategy Saffron met the slam with her shield leaving both students locked together and Saffron herself's vision blocked.

Luckily for the Atlas student however years of fighting in close quarters had honed her fighting senses to a razor edge and managed to immediately pick up Mauve's plan for subtle shifts in her shoulders and posture. Stepping wide and angling her shield to push Mauve's sword up and away Saffron managed to avoid her opponent's kick and hopefully open her defences enough for a precise stab aimed at Mauve's jugular. Regardless Saffron will finish her combo by stepping away, spinning her sword almost 360 degrees for a heavy slam against Mauve's head. Emphasis on slam as Saffron's unfamiliarity with swords resulting in hitting the Beacon student with the flat of her blade rather than the edge.
