Unholy Genesis - [UG:Week 4] Concrete Chaos

Description: Zappa and Bishamon exchange... something. There's blood and fire and blood.

Dear Diary,
How long has it been since I found myself stuck down here? Every week it seems as if I find myself displaced, randomly fainting only to find myself in the hospital! Again, I cannot complain about the nurses at the hospital, but many of the people around I fear are finding me strage - though I cannot help the condition I am in. Mother, I feel like this sickness will scare off my charming bride to be - how can I be prince charming if I am sleeping beauty? A terrible curse, if any...

It is this, exactly, that Zappa writes in his diary as he sits within the park. Dying trees, desiccated grass and likely the many 'undead' that Zappa has considered simply an actor. After all, why would there truly be any undead? It's just impossible. Many of them have also seemingly passed by him to chase after others, as if there was something they 'knew' despite Zappa knowing nothing about them!

It is likely not that they had seen, heard, or shared information regarding Zappa's sudden 'sleeping bouts' where the mild-mannered and sometimes simple human becomes anything but - some kind of monster in his own right. Zappa, of course... simply understands that he is not part of the fesitval.

Yet... why has it lasted for so very long? A city, for a month, playing around? Could it truly be so simple? Hmm...

"My... I do hope before the festival ends I find someone to mend my lonely heart." He sighs, with a somewhat downright silly exclamation - it's honestly so droll! He snaps the book shut, watching as a werewolf? tussles, or chases, what looks to be a hunter. Yet it truly could not be, could it?

Bishamon has no diary. No need for memory. The mortal that is possessed by the sword Kien and the armor Hannya has been thouroughly suppressed, and the cursed artifacts seek only one thing: Blood.

The cursed warrior walks the streets, slashing any who get in the way. The hunter falls in two pieces as the darkstalker skids to a halt and attempts to run the other way. Bishamon throws a gout of ghostly flame at the monster, and yanks it toward him. The darkstalker lets out a yelp of fear and suprise before literally loosing its head. The cursed warrior turns to see Zappa, and strides toward the man.

<<More,>> he says in ancient Japanese. <<I thirst for more blood...>>

COMBATSYS: Bishamon has started a fight here.

Bishamon         0/-------/-------|

It's just a bit different for Zappa. He's possessed to heck and back, but it's really not something he knows. As such, as Bishamon strides through the park, Zappa only looks up silently for a moment - until he watches the hunter and darkstalker meet grisly fates. "How ... can that be possi... no no-"

He doesn't have any real response to what he sees, the man suddenly two men and the darkstalker suddenly a DEAD stalker. There's nothing at all that would make sense if THAT's how it works! It's a festival!

Zappa scrambles bakcwards, hands and legs pushing the ground, attempting to pull away, to escape! It ... doesn't happen that way! His legs and arms meet nothing but tree and wall!

"No .. nononoonono!"

And then .. he faints.

"NnonoONO NO NOOOOONOT OUR BLOOD!" Comes the cry. "THERE'S ENOUGH ELSEWHERE! MAKE YOU BLEED!" Except...he's sudden writhing, bending backwards, arms hanging lifelessly... and there happens to be a plethora of spiritual energies surrounding him.... weird, huh?

COMBATSYS: Zappa has joined the fight here.

Bishamon         0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Zappa

Bishamon, in some part of the three intelligences that make up Bishamon, notes the mass of energies. He doesn't care much. The person, people? in front of Bishamon represent one thing: a target. Bishamon lets out a roar as he charges, and brings the sword up high before bringing it down directly on Zappa's up-turned chest.

<<NOW DIE!>>

COMBATSYS: Bishamon successfully hits Zappa with Power Strike.

But he gets the job done! As simple as Bishamon may seem, it's obviously not /that/ simple. The blade is swung with a roar, and as Bishamon charges, the sword roars just as loud as Bishamon does - before it's brought down on the chest. While the blade cuts, it does not deeply. The form of S-ko stopping the deepest cuts from occuring, especially the bisection.


The form of Zappa then bugs out, the head wrapping around the blade before clamping onto the side of Bishamon's neck, or the armoring there, as the energy flares, centipede like energy twirling around to nip and bite, before Zappa's entire body, and Bishamon, would be tossed heavily away!

COMBATSYS: Bishamon blocks Zappa's Medium Throw.

The bites finds metal and flesh, but Bishamon sets his weight and rips the sword free of Zappa's grip. The cursed warrior takes two steps back, regarding Zappa and S-ko warily. This is something... different. Perhaps its blood will be something new.

Perhaps that will be interesting.

Bishamon flicks his sword in a razor sharp arc, attempting to open up several cuts along vital points in attempt to open up several deep cuts along Zappa's body!

COMBATSYS: Bishamon successfully hits Zappa with Iai-Giri.

Bishamon         0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0            Zappa

The razor sharp arc flicks, yet the bladed man is far too fast - too power - in his skills for Zappa, no, S-ko to react to. With the sudden cuts along Zappa's body, he writhes and flails, body wiggling about as Bishamon manages to tear him to pieces - just how strong that man, or beast, must be!

Throwing itself back, the thing that is Zappa immediately responds to this surge of energy from Bishamon by summoning what /must/ be ghosts, the objects appearing before him. "Not lookin' so good!" "Nope! Need some rest!" "Yeah, you got all beat up!" "GO! AND DON'TCOMEBACK!"

Wheeling through the air, the energy creations flail, flying with abandom towards Bishamon! Each and every one spinning recklessly in a different arc! All intent on double possessing Bishamon, as Zappa wiggles about.

COMBATSYS: Bishamon fails to slow Kaette Konaide Kudasai from Zappa with Kaeshi Ha EX.

Bishamon         0/-------/-======|=======\-------\0            Zappa

Bishamon grins, or at least the face in Bishamon's chest does, as Zappa starts to bleed. The ghost flames, a familiar sight around the cursed warrior, start to rage around him. The vile ronin takes two steps back, and summons some of the souls that follow him around.

A quick gesture of the gauntleted hand sends some of flying towards the ghosts summoned by Zappa, dispeling several of them, but not enough. Ghost fire tears at Bishamon, eliciting a roar of unearthly pain from the darkstalker.

With Bishamon grinning, face to 'face', Zappa's attempt is ... clearly successful! With Bishamon suddenly calling his ghost flames, it's a knock down, drag out ghost on ghost assault! The multitude of souls impact, ghost fire to ghosts that have their hands tied behind their back and ... live.

"Cover me cover me!" One calls out, as the flame gets closer to the ghosts. "I got you! YEEEHAW!" "No no NO I don't want to die agaaaaaai-" Both of the two ghosts poof out of existance JUST as the third wheels on through, energy burning Bishamon as it ... clings to him.

"Looks like it's you and me together, buddy! ... So introduce me to your friends!" The ghost exclaims, tail clinging to Bishamon.

Meanwhile, Zappa twists and turns in place, arms wriggling about as a giant face sprouts from his back as he hunches over. Wait. No. That's a single giant eye, blinking, staring at Bishamon!

COMBATSYS: Zappa focuses on his next action.

Bishamon         0/-------/-======|=======\-------\0            Zappa

Bishamon takes Zappa's pause as hesitation, and takes several deliberate steps towards the possessed man. The sword raises up, light sliding along the blade on the approach. He throws a solid kick at Zappa's face, followed by a quick tripping kick.

Provided that drops Zappa, the cursed warrior drives the tip of his sword directly at Zappa's chest! <<DIE DIE DIE!!!>>

COMBATSYS: Zappa interrupts Armed Combo from Bishamon with Konnichiwa Sanbiki no Mukade.

[              \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Bishamon         1/-----==/=======|=======\=------\1            Zappa

Several deliberate steps - the eye blinks only once as he grows closer. Specifically when Bishamon raises his blade up, light sliding about it before the kick suddenly is swung towards his swinging face. The 'face' of Zappa may as well be a disguise for all the benefit kicking it is.

Even as it drops Zappa, the tip of the sword that slides towards the chest only barely pierces his body! The form of Zappa, knocked over, twitches rapidly as centipedes erupt from the chest of the 'man', beasts of energy, colored 'normal' and that look every bit like real, GIANT, centipedes wrap about the blade, twisting upwards and outwards, a mesh of energy left behind as they seperate the two fighters once more.

More blood stains the ground, but Zappa, on the ground as he is, has his feet vanish, a giant top mouth appearing where his hips were, to push him up by tongue - which reforms to feet.


Bishamon is sent rolling and clattering across the pavement, before skidding to a halt. Sparks are thrown in the wake of the darkstalker as steel meets asphault. The ronin stands up, grinning on the face in his chest as he whips the sword in a swift arc.

<<There is always blood,>> the cursed warrior states as he leans backward at an physically impropable angle as the mouth in his chest yawns wide. A gout of ghost fire sprays from the mouth before coalescing into a large hand that attempts to reach out and crush the life out of Zappa!

COMBATSYS: Zappa overcomes Oni Kubi Hineri EX from Bishamon with Umareru!!.

Bishamon         0/-------/------=|==-----\-------\0            Zappa

"NOTHINGFORYOUUUUUUUUUUU!" Zappa's head flails forwards, becoming a giant hand as it points towards Bishamon, waving at him with finger outstretched before whipping back into normal shap, feet becoming claws to root him in place for the spectacle!

Of course, the darkstalker refuses to stop - he /refuses/ to stop bothering Zappa. S-ko, specifically, growls in her death. A mindless monster, perhaps? Whatever Bishamon is - and S-ko is not certain - he is a problem, an issue - a THREAT to everything she wanted. A spirit of vengeance, perhaps? "WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE!?" She asks, Bishamon perhaps clearly seeing her. He, or it, is possessed as well.

S-ko grapples onto Zappa, holding him up, like she normally does. "WHAT DO YOU NEED BLOOD FOR!?"

She squeezes as she sees the giant gout of ghost fire, a large hand reaching out - and then suddenly meeting resistance. The essence left by the centipedes allows them to once again burst to life. Where they were but sproutlings before, the centipedes erupt like a giant beanstalk, twisting and turning, chipping away at the ghost hand, claws and teeth gnaw and digging through.

"LEAVE ME BE ! ! !"

COMBATSYS: Zappa successfully hits Bishamon with Umareru!!.

The centipedes find purchase on Bishamon's armor, gnawing away at the cursed warrior. The ronin retakes his stance, regarding Zappa and S-Ko. <<THE BLOOD MUST FLOW!>> the monsterous samurai roars as he simply hurls his sword at Zappa with dreaful force!

COMBATSYS: Zappa dodges Bishamon's Tsuji Hayate.

Bishamon         0/-------/-------|==-----\-------\0            Zappa

As the ronin charges, roaring once more, S-ko, connected to Zappa, can see the force and strength behind the blow! The connected part is important - as the sword is thrown, flying through the air - Zappa is picked up and thrown above it, S-ko going flying as well!

Thrown skywards, above both and into the air, Zappa's body morphs as he does so, head enlargening as it approaches Bishamon in a perhaps blatently simple and simple assault... yet S-ko doesn't have many plans left, really!

"THEREISARIVEROFBLOODNEARBY!" She screams through Zappa, at the end of her undead rope!

COMBATSYS: Zappa successfully hits Bishamon with Medium Punch.

Bishamon is not ready for suddenly expanding heads. The ronin staggers back, glaring at Zappa for a long moment. What... the... hell. The darkstalker simply isn't prepared, on any level, for this... thing in front of him. His sword, a monster in its own right, starts to fly back to Bishamon.

<<It is not yours,>> Bishamon states simply as he catches the flying blade in one hand. <<JUST DIE!!!>>

Bishamon makes a flying leap, attempting to cleave Zappa out of the air with a violent swing of the sword!

COMBATSYS: Zappa blocks Bishamon's Power Strike.

"HEISMINE!HISBODYISMINE!HISBLOODISMINE! HIS. LIFE. IS. MINE!" She cries out, S-ko simply /tired/ of this entire charade. Energy burns off her in sickening strength, the very /life/ of Zappa sliding out of him as her eyes, visible behind her ragged hair, burn with hatred.

"BURNHIM!I WILL BURN! FIRE!" While not /exactly/ what Zappa means, S-ko is simply stating that... she'll sooner suck the very life-force out of Zappa than let Bishamon have /anything/ he wants from him.

Spiteful? She is a spirit of vengeance.

To /clarify/, Zappa is suddenly sent careening towards Bishamon, body, soul, and then some - because someone shoved a /razor/ sword into his side and then launched him straight towards Bishamon! Now, who could have done such a thing!?

COMBATSYS: Bishamon fails to interrupt Itasou Tte Iu Ka Itai from Zappa with Kirisute Gomen EX.

COMBATSYS: Bishamon can no longer fight.

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  <
Zappa            0/-------/--=====|

Bishamon's response is fairly simple. Step in, and slice the ever-loving-/crap/ out of Zappa. The suicide charge, though? Not part of the plan. Soul fire tears into Bishamon, cleansing the poor man wearing the armor of the tainted influence of sword and armor. The man screams as much at the pain of Zappa's attack as at the memories the man would be forced to live with as a result of Kien's and Hannya's control.

Fortunately, that is not very long.

Pale blue flame, like those floating around Bishamon, consumes the cursed warrior before simply flitting away. Left behind is a severely burnt corpse.

As Bishamon's last charge is made, the blade - with Zappa in it, flailing - manages to slam into the poor man wearing the armor. Even as the man is cleansed of it, it isn't exactly a problem that S-ko throws Zappa, sword and all, towards Bishamon's possessed fellow. The form of Zappa is pried free of the blade as it slams home, Zappa crashing to the ground as the pale blue flame consumes the warrior, flitting away the burned corpse.

"FINALLY. REST." S-ko claims, as she vanishes - leaving Zappa to crash asleep, recovering his energy ... at the nearby burned corpse.

Waking, Zappa feels that body nearby him - a smile flitting to his lips. he leans over, laying against it and opens his eyes. There is only screaming. Long, arduous screaming. Zappa cannot remeber how long he ran, but this ... specifically...

It goes unnoted int he diary.
