Jocelyn didn't react as her hands were grabbed and pinned above her head.

Prism was straddling her hips, and she could feel the heady warmth of the hummingbird faunus more intimately than she had before. "Prism, you're..." she starts, before her eyes widen, taking in every visible inch of Prism's form. Her thin yet muscled arms, a testament to the amount of effort she's put into her training, travel upward to even more impressive shoulders, amplified by her additional appendages. The iridescent feathers catch the rising sun perfectly, twinkling and sparkling on her slightly flared wings, which travel down to a surprisingly delicate collarbone. That leads down to...

"Gorgeous." Jocelyn breathes, eyes raking over Prism's body. Making no attempt to break free, she simply remained stunned on the floor.

One moment she's standing with one arm outstretched, the next she's beginning to look up at the sky as her ankle's swept out underneath her. In a moment of panic and instinctual reaction, she grabs the nearest thing to her as she falls--which just so happens to be her sparring partner. Hitting the ground without enough force to do actual harm, it nevertheless knocks some wind out of her, causing Jocelyn to just blink and breathe as she lies on the floor.

Matching Prism's first blow with her own arm, Jocelyn pushes away from her using the short amount of time they were in contact, actually dodging the upward hit for the first time. Thinking quickly to avoid further pressure being piled on her from the assault, she threw out a short and quick jab with her left arm, with no chance of overbalancing this time.

Letting out a surprised "eep!" at the speed which Prism engages, Jocelyn barely has time to blink before her Aura is hit by two light impacts. The third hit comes slower, however, and is pushed to the side by her forearm, deflecting most of the kinetic energy.

"Okay then...I can tell you're already going slower than usual but can you please tone it down another notch..." Jocelyn's voice contains just the slightest hint of panic and nervousness as she slowly but steadily backs away from the girl, endeavouring to keep some distance so she could react in time.

"You might as well go for it--no better way to learn than the hard way. Besides, Aura exists for a reason, and just because I keep giving away my own store doesn't mean I don't possess one myself." Jocelyn replied, determined to get something about this right. It would be way better to get shown up by Prism up on the roof than get the absolute stuffing beat out of her in one of those combat lessons where there were people watching and judging.

Besides, if someone disarmed her, she was literally a sitting duck. She doubted meagre training would do much to change that fact but it was better to retain some knowledge of self-defence than have zero clue on what to do apart from run. What kind of Huntress ran from a fight? Oh wait, medics did. They weren't supposed to fight. "...on second thought, do go easy on me, please?"

"So think of it as dodging bullets, only they're a bit larger and slower?" Jocelyn asks, trying to copy what Prism is doing. All she accomplished was to tie her arms in weird knots and shapes. "Or are you trying to deflect the majority of the impact, knock most of the force away from your arms and body?" Okay, why was learning to defend against punches harder than memorising the body organs of a human and what treatment should be administered for what illness? For the life of her she couldn't understand how people made their living off punching things until they fainted or exploded.

Once again attempting to copy Prism's stance, Jocelyn shifted her legs wider than before to assume a more steady pose on the floor, bringing her arms close to her body. Balancing on trees was a thing she did sometimes with her jump pack, so she tried a similar technique. It worked - made the stance feel a little more natural than before.

"That feels better." she commented, testing her balance by leaning first to one side, than the other, imagining herself dodging thrown punches. "Don't know if it'll hold up in battle, though."

"But you're so much more than that," Jocelyn couldn't help going on. "You're kind and forgiving and thoughtful and cute and...where am I going with this?" In an instant, she's bolt upright and looking anywhere but Prism, hands behind her back. "A-anyway, should we continue? Perhaps practicing balance as well?" She had no idea what compelled her to continue speaking although it was clearly a joke, eventually attributing it to a lack of sleep.

Jocelyn breaks into her own laughter, simply amazed at what she could do (or fail to do) if she tried. "I aim to please." she giggled. Though, when Prism threw a jab at her, that laughter was cut short, replaced by a indignant yelp of surprise and red face. "W-what? No, definitely not, why would you think that?" She blurted out, internally surprised at how much that jab affected her.

Doing what Prism motioned her to do, Jocelyn felt slightly more balanced than before, though what came next threw her for a complete loop. "Is tucking your arms close supposed to be for defending yourself?" she asked. "Or are they supposed to let me reach further? Because--ahh!" she yelped, having drawn one fist back for a punch but throwing it too far and losing her balance, stumbling forward and falling on the floor. Sheepishly grinning, she looked up at Prism, an embarrassed flush coming to her cheeks. "Can't believe I can't even throw a punch correctly."

"I think dodging's pretty simple, right? Just do what we do normally and evade attacks?" Jocelyn asks, mimicking Prism's stance, albeit noticeably more sloppy than hers. "Oh. This...feels really weird - just a heads-up, I'm genuinely useless at this, so you're really going to have to start me off on the basics." She shifted uncomfortably in her wrong defensive stance, feeling really unbalanced on her feet like the floor was a bouncy castle.

"Hmm." Jocelyn watched Prism shrink up again, though not as much as before. She probably needed to change the topic before Prism relapsed - besides, that was her last Ice Dust crystal, and she wasn't having Prism go through another panic attack and not being able to help.

"Got it - Prism, cmere, will ya?" Jocelyn beckoned the girl over to her, walking away from the wall and nearer to the middle of the roof. "Since we have time before lessons, how about giving me a hand with something I'm completely and utterly useless at?" She unbuckled her med kit and dropped it to the floor, rocking back and forth on the soles of her feet. "I'm referring to a bit of hand-to-hand fighting."

Graham couldn't believe it. He got to blow off steam and had a clone from the professor to cover his ass. How often was it that one could let loose and not have to worry about his backside being attacked by some unwelcome entity? Calling up his semblance he targeted the nearest Beowolf, causing both to glow red in his and the Grimm's eyes, then waiting for it to come closer before drawing his blade and neatly slicing a horizontal line across its waist where it was thinnest, felling the Beowolf and returning the blade to its sheath. Hell, that was easy.

As Prism explains her goals for the team, Jocelyn's face brightens but her mood drops. She'd seen the utter lack of upper years compared to them as first years, and there could only be one reason why. And if upper years couldn't handle the threat of Grimm--people with the skills, weapons, technology and Semblances capable of levelling buildings--there would only be one eventual outcome.

But then again...the fact that there were teams in the upper years proved humanity's resilience. And while the odds were against them, the odds were almost always against them in the first place. "We'll make it, Prism." She gave her a warm smile. "Together."

A few seconds passed before she slapped her hand on her forehead. "That sounded really cheesy."

Jocelyn winces slightly at the wording. "That sounds like we had casualties - which thankfully we didn't - but please, if you don't mind, please refrain from using that sorta words so casually. It's just that medics treat that stuff really seriously, and each casualty is a blemish on their record. I've...had some too." Her expression turns to one of sadness, remembering her past experiences.

Still, that doesn't dampen her curiosity upon listening to Prism's question. "A goal? Maybe to prevent further occurrences, perhaps?"
