”I’m thinking I should probably buy you more flowers.” Prism says, before reaching up and tapping right above her ear. ”Faunus hearing has its advantages - uh, disadvantages, in this case?”

Looking out over the field, there’s a slight shift to Prism’s face - a puzzled frown appears, her brow furrowing as she thinks about what to say. ”Well, we know what we need to focus next on then, shooting while accounting for wind speed. Given... well, me, it’s going to be a pretty handy thing to learn for the battlefield, alongside helping have better aim in the air. We’ll definitely practice some mobility stuff later, I want to see how you are at hitting a moving target while moving - but this looks like are next big challenge.” Prism pauses for a moment while thinking, a slightly more expressive look on her face now. ”Let me know if I’m ever to harsh, okay? I’ll admit I run Casanova as a tight ship, but like - I don’t want to be too overbearingly bossy, just... a forwards professional.”

As someone who's new to the site and didn't get to participate last time around, the prospect sounds incredibly exciting!

The wolf-whistle that sounds out in response to the farthest target going down is loud and enthusiastic, and Prism turns to face Jocelyn after watching the farthest target go down. She's bouncing slightly on her heels again, lopsided grin on her face wide and bright and all directed towards Jocelyn "C'mon Josie, don't sell yourself short. Shots like those are all skill, especially in windy conditions like this! Great comeback there."

She's blatantly proud of her friend. Turning back to the console, she restores the previous targets - and the wind picks up, a strong breeze that's more than enough to send Prism's short hair dancing, instead of slightly ruffling. "M'kay, try to make these all within the first clip of bullets, and preferably one after the other. The shorter the time, the better."

Prism blinks in surprise as nearly all of Jocelyn's initial shots miss, only clipping one of the closest Beowolves. She crosses her fingers as she fires again, but to no avail - every one of the woman's shots miss. "...ouch, indeed. I know your aim can be better than that, is it really all the shaking? Or are you not used to firing in windy conditions?"

Spoiler: show
Let's follow the 5 second rule per post! Assume every action/post takes place within 5 seconds, unless stated otherwise. So Mogan's semblance would say, take two posts to come into effect. In the case of the below, let's say the entire action takes place over 5 seconds of Mogan's surprised and can't pull back or 10 if he manages to catch himself.

"C'mon Mahogony, you don't trust me to handle myself?"

The sparing match had been her idea. Ever since that improvisational workout with that first year had nearly ended in her losing - her, a third year - Jima had been looking for any opportunity to improve her skills. So beyond the drafts for new weapons that peppered her sketchbook, the theoretical applications of the Grab n' Go in combat, she'd asked Mogan to go up against her to test her skills. And more importantly, to not hold back.

"I need the practice. Unlike you, Suntalia, or even Lily, I don't have the grace of an offensive semblance. I need to work around someone like you."

She took her place opposite, unhooking Goliath from her waist and shaking forth the mace's vicious spikes in one smooth move. That familiar cocky grin fell into place on her face, even if it was a ruse -  this was going to be one hell of a learning experience, no matter which one of them won.

"Advise dutifully noted - besides, with my semblance, it's hard to get anything by me."

She loosely swings the mace in circles with one hand. Mogan was obviously expecting her to go right to him, but Jima still had a few tricks up her sleeve, and there was no time better than the presence. Rather rushing him as he anticipated, she brought the mace around so that the diamond-shaped tip that concealed the mace's internal grappling hook could fire off with a click - flying forwards to (hopefully) wrap around his hand. Unless Mogan manages to dodge, that, Jima would aim to bring him into range with a harsh yank as the cord started to withdraw - and if he made it into her range without untangling himself or pulling back, then she'd bring spiked end of her mace down across his front in a strong, two-handed bash.

Grappling Hook Yank: (2%)
Mace Bash (8%)

"Maybe not broken, but you're definitely overclocked. Prism grins as Jocelyn takes in the recently-updated practice range. It hadn't happened too long ago, but it's not too much of a surprise that she didn't know - Prism spent more time down here, anyways. "Pretty recently! It's actually kind of nice, it really helps training in regards to extreme outdoor conditions."

Dropping her bag and the box of breakfast foods on the ground, stretches momentarily, enjoying the morning sunshine, before closing her eyes with a breath. The wind noticeably picked up, causing the holograms to flicker in the distance - and moving to the console, Prism sets up the same series of targets at 500, 1000, and 1500 meters. "You're up again Josie, as long as you can do it without shaking."

Prism quickly packs up the pastry box and other breakfast foods, throwing the empty thermos into her drawstring bag. Reverting Hawk's Eye back to it's storage form and clipping it onto her belt, her head jerks up as Jocelyn runs head-first into the door, and apparently can't help but snorting at the sight. "No, but you might be a little bit. Look before you leap, Josie."

Moving in line with her friend, she triggers the sensor so that the doors slide open, gesturing for her teammate to go first. "Outdoor ranges are down the path to the left, should be pretty empty still. Lead the way." So that Prism can follow shortly behind, where she can keep on her friend's antics - and hopefully prevent any more door-related incidents.

As Coconut presses on, there's a slight twist to Prism's face. Despite meeting Coconut with equal force, he was stronger than her - and it shows as she needs to take a step, then two backwards to avoid being toppled. Her grip as on the lower half of the staff, and she couldn't risk sliding it higher to get a better grip without bringing them even closer.

Time to change things up. She needed more space.

Prism stops trying to press back, dropping the glaive and whirling around completely, trying to spin into his personal space with her back facing him. This plan wasn't without risks, he could grab her if he was fast enough, or still jump out of the way - but if he couldn't he'd find a pair of fast-moving feathery wings, faintly shimmering white, slamming directly into his chest.

Combat Stats:
Aura-Enhanced Wing Blow (5%), 2.5% if clipped with one wing)

"I trust you to Amane, but it'd still be useful if you forwarded it - I don't want to schedule team practice when you're not around. You don't need to go into detail, just let us know when you'll be absent." Prism says, extracting the pin from the sewing kit. Shoving the calendar still under one arm into the box, she hopes quietly to herself nobody mentions anything, if they noticed at all. Standing back up, she moves over to the closet to pull out what appears to be a piece of designing paper, before pinning down the individual corners.

"I plan on making digital calendar with all our schedules in it for easy use at some point, and I can probably finagle it to update automatically whenever you guys add to your plans, though at some point I'd like to get a physical calendar just for the sake of having a visual to look at." She explains, nodding in satisfaction as to the paper's flatness.

"Jima Purpora at your service." She says cheerfully, a surprisingly cheerful smile on the tall woman's face. "I'm here to help you keep an eye on things, but let's hope there's nothing that we need to worry about." Keeping an eye on things is literal, in Jima's case - despite orienting herself towards the women they're all guarding, the nice thing amount mobile senses is one can easily get a bird's-eye view of everything around them; especially in Jima's case, where she's parked her eyesight nearly 20 meters above the arriving party. Perfect for seeing anybody particularly interesting approaching them.

Prism gives a little squawk as Jocelyn launches herself at her, staggering slightly under the taller woman's weight, but returning the hug with a fit of giggling as well. She's way more excitable than usual right now - note to self, make sure Jocelyn doesn't consume caffeine in high quantities, and get decaf next time around as well. "No worries, this is an excellent consolation prize."

Giving Jocelyn a soft smile as she pulls away, Prism thinks for a moment about what to do. "Since you're so energetic all of the sudden, how about we go outside and blow off some steam? Target practice with the wind going could be valuable."

"Standard issue, thankfully. Not sure I'd be here otherwise." Prism says, still focused on the further targets. There's a certain set to her stance as she prepares. Not any different from her regular posturing, but there's an air of focus about her - she's trained down the scope of the rifle, everything else almost falling away. She adjusts her grip one final time, before holding her breath - and then four shots fire off in quick succession, two per holographic Ursa as her rifle jerks upwards. A couple seconds pass as the bullets fly, before both Ursa in the distance shatter, and Prism lowers the rifle to look on in almost disbelief.

"...I've never made it beyond like, 1700 meters before. That was a solid 2000." She turns to Jocelyn now, her smile practically beaming. "New record."

”Glad you’re okay then. And I’ll grab decaf next time we have an early morning practice, okay?” She teases, smirking.  In response to her question, Prism reaches around to unhook the rifle from her belt. And hey, I may be a good shot but I’m no professional - there’s still a long ways to go for me. Still, try to keep an eye on my stance and movements - I have more experience hitting long-range targets, so it’s good to see in action.”

Prism then switches places with Jocelyn, flicking a switch on the rifle to change Hawk’s Eye to it’s primary firing mode. Dropping her head to stare down the barrel, her stance automatically shifts as she brings the butt of the gun up into the crook of her shoulder, there’s a moment where she focuses on her first target - before her small form jerks with the first bullet firing.

Five shots ring out in quick succession, each managing to hit home in the targets nearest to Prism. They aren’t all headshots - some body shots, some neck, but they still do the job and cause the holograms to shatter. Popping the cartridge, Prism quickly pulls another off the waistband of her belt before sliding it into place with a click, focusing her sight down the barrel again. This time, the shots are fired off at a slightly slower rate,  aiming a good distance ahead of where the holograms move - to the point with one hologram, the bullet simply clips it instead of hitting home. Cursing lightly under her breath, the final case is ejected before switching it out for a new one, she stares down the sights one last time before firing - and that last hologram shatters as she hits home. ”Even I can’t hit everything routinely all the time - thought I do try to, ‘cause ammunition is expensive. Might as well finish this cartridge off, could you throw up maybe two 2000 meter targets for me?”

"Oh, I'm sorry I missed out on it then! I could've used one for the dorm room." Albrecht jokes, fully turning towards Smokey and Serin now. "And I suppose I can't blame you, everyone fawns over their appearance from time to time, though I don't quite understand the point of pursuing vanity myself. Why bother?" Albrecht shrugs at the last part, attempting to flick his hair to the side... despite the fact it was in a ponytail.

The shorter one seemed... displeased somehow, with Albrecht's appearance. He might've wanted to work out alone? He'd invited that other boy, so he certainly wouldn't mind superior company. The taller one seems fine as well, even if he's not quite as muscular as Albrecht himself or the short one... and most concerningly, he seems to have a prosthetic arm. Albrecht's eyes fixate on the shiny metal for a moment, then two as his brow wrinkles - before snapping his gaze back to Smokey, an easier if slightly-forced smile on his face. "I'm sorry, It's impolite to barge in without introductions. Albrecht Clodwal of Team Cinerous. We're fairly recently formed, and I'm somewhat of a... new transfer to Beacon, so to speak. I only just managed to find the weight room, because apparently it was completely remodeled recently and they've only just finished cleaning up the "do not enter" tape - it was a good enough chance to introduce myself, you see, and perhaps lend my services in spotting in return for the same, if you wouldn't mind?"
