Beacon Academy / Company and Combat [Closed - Azure Blair]
« Last post by Siuwa on September 30, 2018, 11:53:08 AM »
In front of Catalina Glenn stood Azure Blair, the latest student resulting from the seemingly year-round enrollment procedure. The place is Beacon's Auditorium and they're specifically here instead of passing through it, so what would they be doing should be obvious, even to a mostly new student like Azure here.

"Ready when you are." While Catalina is no blood knight, he does need to fight and accustom himself to a larger variety of opponents if he were to challenge him. And so here stood him initiating Azure, thinking it as a mutually beneficial endeavor.

Combat stats:
Aura: 100% [#this is your Aura meter just like how it is in the show. It starts at 100% no matter how tough your Aura is and for the sake of this match 15% is the cutoff for determining the winner.]
Ammo for Take That!: 1 magazine of piercing rounds loaded/1 magazine of piercing rounds/1 magazine of explosive rounds/5 shocking rounds/5 heating rounds/1 freezing round [#this is where you put ammo for your guns, if any.]
Dust: 100% Fire/100% Earth/100% Lightning/100% Ice [#this is where you put you Dust stock. Types and amount vary.]
Semblance: 100% [#Put any variation of semblance 'mana' here.]

Readying [#Sum your actions, their possible effects and any damage numbers in Aura percent here.]

Kisha still couldn't get rid of the feeling of having seen him somewhere before, but even the name didn't mean anything to her.

"Silence is one part of the reason," Kisha replied, looking into the distance, "But don't hold back, I love a good conversation, and no reason to be so polite, just call me Kisha."

Interested, she continued to watch Calem. Personally, she was fascinated by the art of fishing, but she never, and probably will never go fishing herself. Fishing was a hobby that needed patience, something she didn't possess. But watching others was something different. It was more appealing, more interesting. And then you had someone to talk to.

"Oh, a little bit of everything,"  she said, waving the question off. She often listened to music, actually, no day passes without the headphones in her ears, but that was probably a too far-reaching topic to incorporate this in their small talk. Instead, she leaned back and looked further into the distance, toward the horizon. "And this is the second reason why I'm here,"  she pointed with her hand over the sea "You just can't skip this view."

Topaz’s attack was successful in knocking down her new opponent, but it opened her up to a surprise hail of bullets from Vivian’s previously unnoticed gun forcing Topaz to duck down to avoid at least some of the bullets ,but they still did a number on her as 5 bullets found their marks on Topaz before she dropped onto her knee. The stinging of the bullets making her painfully aware of how hurt she was now, she couldn’t keep taking hits like this without delivering more. Clenching her teeth Topaz charged forward as fast she could through the loose sand and attacked the arm that Vivian held the gun in with all the force she could muster in hopes of hurting Vivian and knocking the ranged weapon away, if she could do that she figures she might have a advantage on the next couple of blows.

-Full Force Strike at Vivians gun arm [-10%]

Aura: 56%
Semblance 100%
Arrows: 14/15
Crystals: 3/3
Fire Dust Vials: 100%
Ice Dust Vials: 100%
Electric Dust Vials: 100%
Kinetic Dust Vials: 80%(loaded)

"Oh, you can bet on that! Cocoa here is my sweet little angel," she said, patting the holster to amplify her statement. "Just wait until you see her in battle, believe me, this is gonna be so epic!"

Kisha leaned back in her seat and her gaze wandered to the window. She watched as the landscape moved past her, then she looked back at Anza "Your dad taught you how to shoot? Same here, but I don't remember how old I was then, maybe 9, but it also could have been 10." she briefly buzzed in her thoughts in search of the right age, but eventually gave it up.

"Well, I've asked my questions, now it's your turn, what would you like to know about me?"

(There will be a time skip next post, so if you want to do something else, you better do it now.)

"Two Nevermores, mid-sized. Several- four Beowolves, without an Alpha. Can't relax yet."

The closing sounds of the Grimm were loud, but not overwhelming and the chime of her scroll receiving a message was unmistakable. Let's take a look...




"Alright, the Monahans are out of range now, time to head back to Beacon. Forget about the Grimm incoming, they won't be harming anybody if we move fast enough." Siu signaled with a wave. She tries her best to understate the threat incoming, and the Cranes are holding them off in the distance, but they really need to get out of here.

     Slowing to a trot, Shiroe finally made it to the dorms out of breath, but not out of mind. His chest heaved heavily as he walked towards their room, the door to it wide open, and the unexpected lack of shouting took him by surprise.

     Clearing his throat, Shiroe rapped on the wooden door as he approached. It seemed as if Reggie had already started a bit of an altercation but he made it just in time to prevent further escalation. "Hello." Shiroe started, "I see you've met Reggie. Apologies if he was more than a little rude."

     Shooting a knowing look at Reginald, and then at Akel, he realized what the arguing was about. Akel and Lilla were strangers to Shiroe but he knew about the former from Reggie's occasional rants and mysterious beatings.

     "Forgive me, I forget myself." he added, "I'm Shiroe Pendragon, and just like Reggie over here I used to come from Atlas. The rest of our team disbanded for a myriad of reasons but I trust that doesn't lower your opinion of us any more than this little quarrel did." Shiroe spoke in a surprisingly calm tone, given the treatment of his teammate. But given who exactly it was, he was of course, more forgiving. Making his way into the room he pulled out his scroll and looked at both Akel and Lilla. "Apologies, your contact info. If I may. Being in the same team it's only necessary that we have each other on speed dial."

Titania only gave a soft smile as she watched her student lock eyes with her former student and nodded in Juno's direction. "Thank you for making time, Juno, I know an extra session can be taxing on an already tight schedule." With that pleasantry out of the way, she moved onto the matter at hand. "You've made it into tournament twice now and making it to the semi-finals once is very impressive on its own, let alone..." She let the thought hang. "It's clear you have potential to be a great hunter," She shot a quick smile toward a Malina that hadn't yet looked back to her, "much like Malina here. That said, you're still rough around the edges, like a mined stone that still needs to be shined and cleaned before it's worth anything."

Titania nodded to the field of dirt and dust. "Today you'll be facing off against Malina in a sparring match- now I know that facing off a full huntress on your own is essentially suicide." She followed quickly before her student could make any remark. "But this isn't a standard sparring match. For Malina's part, she only has that standard sparring staff, her tail, and her semblance. All she'll be doing is defending and trying to avoid your attacks. All you have to do is land as many hits as you can before I call the match."

With the explanation finished, Malina silently stood from her seated position and dug the tip of her tail from the dirt before making her way to one end of the field. Titania watched her go, only briefly, before turning back to Juno. "Any questions?"
1v1 Matches / Re: First Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Samantha Quartz vs. Camelia Sol
« Last post by Glow on September 28, 2018, 04:47:35 PM »
Two chains snaked their way towards Camelia as she approached, looking like they were going in to attempt an attack but instead swinging around at a slightly slower pace than before to try and hit her back. The gravity did make them harder to manipulate, but she could still swing them about with less control and some more force.

The woman grunted, before another small burst of semblance suddenly set the blade spinning around at high speeds. Steadying her grip with her other two chains, she took advantage of the increased gravity this time and attempted to do an arcing swing sideways and down at Camelia, using the previous momentum to practically chuck herself and the whirring blade at her opponent.

(Powerful swing: -5% stamina, -20% aura, -3% aura/second in touch with blade, Chains: -3% aura each.)

[AURA: 77%]
[STAMINA: 42%]
[HELD CHARGE: 25% (Prismatic Performance)]
1v1 Matches / Re: Fourth Year 1v1 bracket- Semifinals: Infrared Ray vs. Kei Tsz Fung
« Last post by Siuwa on September 28, 2018, 11:17:46 AM »
The instant Kei starts to run for his dear Aura Infrared stares right at him intently and spread her body as much as possible with both Action and Reaction on hand. That's the last thing she clearly remembers before she hears a loud "Boom" and everything went black.

[OOC: the following frame-by-frame analysis is nowhere near scientific and does not pretend to be so. Background music: Level 5 Judgelight - To Aru Kagaku No Railgun Opening 2 by Fripside.]
t = 0 split seconds, the Dust in Kei's lance detonates. Infra made a pose that spreads her limbs and equipment.

t = 1 split second, the cracks propagate throughout the rocks at incredible speeds. Infra still waits without noticing everything.

t = 2 split seconds, the rock is fully shattered and some of them start moving upwards. Water affected by the shockwave fill the cracks in every direction. Infrared's legs start to feel the ground pushing against them and start sending neural signals to the brain.

t = 3 split seconds, the mountaintop looks like it slightly expanded. Infrared feel the push from the ground and prepares her semblance to activate at any moment.

t = 4 split seconds, the rocks clearly show they're shattered even to the audience. Smaller splinters already shot past Infrared's statue and continue skywards. Some of them hit her. She does not feel that yet.
[OOC: the music is abruptly stopped by-]

t = 5 split seconds, the sound of the explosion reached the audience. The bulk of the fragments reached Infrared and she activates her semblance, sending rocks that have a clear path towards where she last saw Kei.

t = 1 second, Infrared is lying on what's left of the ground being overwhelmed with pain. Tears are dripping down her face and her lungs can't scream. The rocks are flying towards Kei in a spread at a speed equal to what hit Infrared with.

Battle data:
Aura: 42%(40% -> 30% due to semblance cost instead of direct hit, 15% heat)
Reaction: 1 Shot/16 stored

Semblance reflected rocks: 20% + 5% Heat but spread out

Saffron nodded as Azure agreed with her in regards to self-deprecating humour, it wasn’t exactly a topic she wanted to dwell on so she was eager to move on. ’If the twelve string intimidated you I can’t imagine how you reacted with the piano’s up to 236 strings.’ Saffron teased before hastily adding. ’It’s not quite the same thing I’m aware but I hope you understand my point, a twelve only has ten strings tuned differently so it’s not as complex as it immediately appears just like how the sheer flexibility of a piano can be overwhelming initially, with enough practice you get used to it. I’ll confess there are a lot of skills that a twelve forces you to learn harder than a more traditional guitar, particularly around strumming, but relearning the finger styling was challenging. Twice the strings mean you need more pressure to get the same tension and without a good grasp of fretting you lose a lot of your foundations… I’m sorry you probably already known all of that... Just get a bit caught up sometimes.’ Saffron explained awkwardly, what was she thinking explaining musical elements to a professional.

Weapons, however, were something their knowledge should be on a much even level. ’Yea well someone on my team has a weapon so complex they need to carry around a computer to help them wield it. Who would have thought that boomerang/hatchet/shotguns and fire spewing axe guitars aren’t the most over the top weapons? But there has to be a story behind it right? Like you have to look good while hunting, I get that, but what made you choose a guitar as your weapon?’ Saffron asked looking back down at the instrument, even now it was hard to imagine what was hiding beneath the well made but ultimately mundane exterior. ’So you’re quite the musical polymath? Well how about if you have any questions about your subjects or a looking for a sparring partner and I’ll help you out and in turn, I’ll have a professional I can turn to about musical questions?’ Saffron offered before also offering her scroll number on some cardboard.

’Yea I could imagine it seems very out of place.’ Saffron began gesturing down at her uniform. ’I’m not on exchange, Alban owed Amarant a small favour and although he is a brilliant educator the Atlas Headmaster isn’t someone you want to be owing anything to, housing me for a couple of weeks while I do a little more hands-on hunter experience was just one of the chips he called in. It’s been fun… well as fun as fighting Grimm mostly alone ever gets and I think it’s important to remain in uniform outside of battle. Particularly considering what I am.’ Saffron finished extending her quills that lay dormant within her hair. Saffron never specificly hid her origins but her years in Atlas had an odd combination of punishing her for drawing attention to it and her own refusal to back down mostly canceled each other out. At it’s core Saffron is so used to be known as ‘the Faunus one’ that she wasn’t used to that not being peoples first thought when interacting with her. Getting a little presumptuous in your infamy Saffron thought to herself dryly.

Saffron raised an eyebrow at the scroll and was going to tease Azure more about being a superstar but there was something in the younger girl’s expression that told her it wouldn’t go down well. ’So why are you so worried about your subjects anyway? You passed the entrance exam, right? You’ve earned your place here. There is nothing anyone else can say or you can think that can take that achievement from you.’ Saffron responded rather curious why someone who seemed rather well together in all other aspects didn’t have much confidence here. Saffron was no stranger to doubts surrounding her abilities but hunter skills are a lot more easily measured than her musical talents but it hasn’t always been that way. Doubt is like a rot, it can infect the mind and make itself real, it isn’t a fate Saffron would wish on her worst enemy let alone someone like Azure. Saffron was rather blind to the fact she was attempting to broach the very same issue she had shut down in regards to her musical talent, too concerned with the ‘what’ to care very much for the ‘why.’
