KOF 2017 - Act 2: Mission 26 - Pirates of the K'aribbean

[Toggle Names]

Description: Junk on a junk, destination the New World, Sylvie was shipped off with her cargo of Combot research materials. She is the curator of scraps, rising up in the ranks of NESTS, from trash to semi-trash. Sylvie is doing a FANTASTIC JOB! But there's an end to all the gloating and fun on deck when the captain notifies her of some junk stowaway on the ship: A defect more defective than Miss Paula Paula herself. How did the renegade K' even get here, and what is his goal? If not to ensure that sensitive equipment sinks to the bottom of the Pacific for the greater good, then it must be as an illegal immigrant, because who the hell wants to live in Japan right now anyway!

Semi-Trash! It's a whole new beginning!
Semi-Trash! What a world we live in!

Sylvie is happily solo-re-enacting Titanic by balancing on one foot on the front of the ship - and why does she do this? Certainly not for the captain to enjoy her looks, but to cause the ship to have very few interruptions. If you saw Sylvie Paula Paula on the front of the ship, would you go near it? 'Course not! That is the same situation that has, fortunately, worked so far! The bright colored eye-balls, the pink colorization of her clothing and the rampant bobbing and weaving that makes Sylvie look like she's going to topple over at any moment! It's all of nature's way of saying 'Goddamn, I didn't make this garbage! The hell you do!?'.

The combots are loaded carefully and Sylvie was in charge of /nothing/ at all. This makes it effective and, more importantly, trust-worthy. What Sylvie got to carry was damaged cargo - herself and combots - as she stepped from here to there. Yet the horn sounded. "EH!?" Sylvie exclaimed, twisting around and striking a pose, wagging a finger at the captain as she leans forwards towards the ship's windows! "What's the big idea!? Sylvie could've fallen off...!" And then she almost does - sparking hands keeping her up-right instead of falling, "Pfft~." She giggles to herself, before skipping in.

"...Whaaaaaaaaaaat?! Worse than ME!?" It is today, a graduation day, of Sylvie somewhat. She learns they didn't mention one worse than herself. Yet it should be noted, they say, they are dangerous "So's Sylvie!", they are powerful "That's the same thing!", they are HERE "WHAAAAAAAT?!".

Barreling into the holding bay, quite the open space marred by objects, pallets, stolen and hoisted goods, and metallic corners and surroundings, Sylvie sparks angrily! "ALRIGHT! Sylvie heard there's a paula pauper freeloading on here! Olly Olly oxygen freee! Sylvie's gonna sting you like a bee!" She proclaims, pointing towards the darkness. "... Oh." Flick. The lights go on, "Sylvie's serious, okay? Come on out and don't mess this up for her!"

'K might not likely 'kare.

Sylvie's only warning, past instinct, that she is not alone in the room is a loud yell. Followed by a very large cargo crate that is launched directly at her!

A tall and lean man comes walking from where the makeshift projectile was launched, his shoulders hunched slightly and hands in his pockets as he scowls at the oddly dressed woman. "Another NESTS reject, huh?" he growls. "Guess I'll have to take you apart before I sink this tub."

COMBATSYS: K' has started a fight here.

Talking. Talking. Words. Sylvie doens't shut up, does she? When the lights go on, Sylvie is worried about talking. Not enough to notice the sudden massive object that is above her head, getting closer and going down towards her. Eyes open bright and wide, a moment lost in many more, "NA NI!?" Said totally seriously as NA NI, a hand swimging one way, her body moving the other. The crate crashes pre-emptively into the wall as Sylvie leaps to the other side, rolling forwards and to the side as her powers help direct the metal box away.

"GEEZE that's a mean way to say hello! But I guess you're a mean guy too-oh yep!" Sylvie explains, almost too cheerfully. It drops. "You're definitely the failure they talked about. Sylvie knows how it is. If you DO take Sylvie apart..." There's an electrical build-up all around Sylvie. "You're going have to do it /fast/." The failure proclaims rising up on her palms before falling backwards to the ground, gathering her breath, "She... is going... to really.. put everything... SHE GOT INTO THIS! I don't know HOW you can stand Failure... but SYLVIE'S TIRED OF IT!!" She stomps her foot, exhausted, and then smiles once more, "Okay~?"

Throwing herself forwards, Sylvie attempts to grasp for K's neck and swing about it once, to take him then to the ground, "So' c'mere! Say uncle!"

COMBATSYS: K' blocks Sylvie's Power Throw.

[  \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
K'               0/-------/------=|=======\=------\1           Sylvie

K' snaps his forearms off to ward off the choke before shoving Sylvie away. "Fast, huh," he asks, almost amused. "Maybe," he says, not quite agreeing. K' sets into a ready stance, watching Sylvie carefully while he prepares for his next move.

Flames gather around his right hand, throwing off blistering heat...

COMBATSYS: K' charges his next attack!

[  \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
K'               0/-------/----===|=======\=------\1           Sylvie

Shoved away, Sylvie flails her arms as her assault is rejected! She manages to stay standing, though her bouncing from foot to foot isn't interrupted in the least! "For real!" She proclaims, "You don't have a chance! Sy.. Sylvie can already feel the energy building in her!" She proclaims - and then flames begin to gather about his hand.

Uh Oh. Sylvie heard about this, "You're like, nega-Kula! You're all fiery when she's all cold and collected!" Sylvie proclaims, "But Sylvie's got you beat, she's sure! She'll strike you hard and fast like .. a lightning bolt? YEAH!"

With a hand pointed towards K', Sylvie swings her other arm. "Here she GOOOOOES!"

She breaks out in a run, both hands clasping together as she gets close and swings for the fences, a heavy hammer-blow intended to swing up into K's fiery aura and through - and she's spinning all the same!

COMBATSYS: K' interrupts Strong Punch from Sylvie with Crow Bite.

[     \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
K'               0/-------/--=====|=======\====---\1           Sylvie

K' drops into a low crouch as the hammer strike slams into one shoulder. The flames erupt over the man's arm as he leaps skyward, slamming a flame-shrouded fist under Sylvie's jaw. K's does one slow spin before landing lightly on the balls of his feet.

"You sure talk a lot," he comments as he tracks the girl's flight path.

The flame shrouded fist impacts into Sylvie's jaw like a rocket, and Sylvie is along for the ride, sent spiralling fskywards and away - of course, there's no sky. There's a heavy THUNK as Sylvie makes a dent on the ceiling, bits and pieces of hat-ware and other hardware that Sylvie wears clattering about boat and the ground, the failure crashing against a cargo box and then flipping with momentum to the ground beneath it.

This is where she groans, but pulls herself back up to her feet. "Ghhr... 'course I do, it's because Sylvie has a lot to /say/." Sylvie remarks, "I'm going to keep talking, too! Sylvie might be a failure, but she's not about to make herself a mistake, either!" If that makes... any sense at all.

It doesn't need to.

Once more, Sylvie rushes headlong towards K'. He could likely feel the static starting to pick up, the electrical charge in the air building rapidly - and the closer that Sylvie got, the more it grew. It likely wouldn't be long before whatever Sylvie had planned came to completion. For better or worse. With a skip, one, two, three! Sylvie leaps upwards before twirling around, a leg swinging forwards heel first down towards K's forehead. "Knock me down all you like, Sylvie'll get RIGHT back up!"

COMBATSYS: K' Toughs Out Sylvie's Medium Kick!

[       \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
K'               1/----===/=======|=======\=====--\1           Sylvie

K' lunges forward, practically headbutting the kick as it comes down. He reaches for Sylvie's shoulder as he tries to place a fist just under Sylvie's sternum. Then he surges forward with his hips and his shoulders, pushing forward with his legs.

The punch does not travel very far. About an inch. But it will with a surprising amount of force all the same!

COMBATSYS: Sylvie blocks K''s One Inch.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
K'               1/--=====/=======|=======\======-\1           Sylvie

The headbutt - almost a headbutt - of a kick tells something Sylvie needs to know. 'Oh sh-'. That's literately what the forehead damn near coming at her foot tells her. Sylvie is one to listen. She listens /well/ in such a case. The form of K' approaches her like an unstoppable train as the fist comes down under her sternum, the fist moving towards Sylvie's form in a very brief, powerful fashion. Perhaps surprising to K' will be the result - Sylvie still stands tall.

Hell, Sylvie still /stands/ - arms up - back of her palms with eyes that are cracked from the force - having skidded backwards a good distance more than an inch. Oh, how it hurts her arms and body, the resulting force causing her to shudder as she stands back in her bouncing state. "Geeeze that was close... really hurt...! But don't get cocky..." And Sylvie's foot comes down, a crack of energy suddenly sparking out around her, "NOW it's SYLVIE'S TURN!"

Arms extend towards K' as her fingers dance - and each digit conducts its own elemental chi, strings of yellow as they rain upon K', electricity conducted towards him, enough to cause the hair on the back of his neck stand on end! "DENKIIIII~!" She cries out, but doesn't finish as she almost force-lightnings K'!

COMBATSYS: Sylvie successfully hits K' with Denki Kaijin.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
K'               1/=======/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Sylvie

Electricity surges through K's frame, dropping him to his knees for a moment. He coughs out some smoke. He gasps for air before standing back up, his clothes smouldering. One would think K' would own clothes that stand up to heat better than that.

"Alright," he says, "I've had just about enough out of you." Flames scream up his right arm as he lets out a fierce yell. Clearly, he's working up for something big. Something... /hot/.

COMBATSYS: K' charges his next attack!

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
K'               2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Sylvie

As K' drops to his knees, Sylvie smirks, winking to the man, "See, not so hot NOW are you? Sylvie's alllll charged up, BZZZT, like a battery! She won't shortcircuit THIS time!" Is the claim, especially as she bounces up on the tip-toes of her foot, a hand extended upwards. "And Sylvie's not going to stop until she sees YOU do. Soooooo?"

Alright! "Alright! Glad we-" He keeps going. "!?" A confused sound doesn't quite make it far out of her mouth as he tells her it is 'completely over' in a way. A fierce yell comes towards her, and Sylvie is confused as all get out. That yell is clear, too - and Sylvie hmms...

Then stamps her foot, "No, You." Stamp, "Have." Stomp, "NOT!" Each time a slight shockwave of electricity arcs off her and around. Things become wavy, eyes begin to lie. The form of Sylvie seems to blue and spread as electrical interference begins to deepend. Sylvies move towards K' as one leaps at him directly, electricity arcing off her hands, chi shimmering. Another stands back - electricity arcing off as she rises from the ground. A third lunges past.

Only one /can/ be real - but Sylvie isn't about to tell K' which!

COMBATSYS: K' fails to interrupt Kaiten Coil from Sylvie with Empowered #Hyper Chain Drive#.

[                   \\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
K'               0/-------/-------|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Sylvie

Sylvie appears behind K' as he goes to move - and his actions would likely not be expecting Sylvie crouching behind him, hands planted on the ground - the woman spinning upwards as electricity arcs off her, a somersaulting cartwheel of chi, Sylvie twisting around inside of it as she twirls about. A risky manuever, but one that may pay off as she spins, electromagnetics causing the girl to rise skywards.

Both legs press against K' before Sylvie kicks off, landing back on her feet, floating down as the electricity arcs about her.

K' brings his right fist up, preparing to slam all of that pent up rage and power down onto the deck. It would have /also/, probably, served to punch a good-sized hole in the ship's hull would would get the job done. It'd also have the added bonus of cooking Sylvie.

But he's too slow this time.

K' is battered, beaten, electrocuted, and slammed to the deck. He stays down for a moment, his vision swimming as his body rebels against him. It takes him a long moment, but apparently his spark is not completely extinguished. He lurches upright, then wobbles to his feet. "Yeah," he rasps, his voice hoarse from trauma, "I think that I am."

Through sheer luck, or latent power, Sylvie manages to avoid being cooked, roasted alive. The fire - the heat - she remembers some sort of test like it in the NESTS training ground. How surprising she feels it again. No, it's what they had said.

Lurching upright, Sylvie watches K' rise, hands on her hips. Her breath is heavy. The energy that she has gathered around her continues to rage and continues to surround her. K' might notice one of the eyes on her head swivel forwards to peer at him, watching him. "Yeah? Yeah!~ Good. So you can get off the ship now. Sylvie SAID she'd get this back, and she SAID she wouldn't be a failure once more. Well, not since she left NESTS. Uhm." Left. Did leave? Or is she still there?

It doesn't matter now. She's actively helping them, "But maybe she can rejoin... especially after she gets this where it needs to be! I'll quench your flames! It'll be great, and they'll welcome me back~! AWESOME!" She cheers. The floating ceases, Sylvie skipping forwards. Each skip comes with an over-exagerated motion of her hips as she grows closer, "You know I liked you better on your knees!"

And her hips swing about again, leg lashing out as she twists to impact atop of K's shoulder and hook him straight into the ground with a heavy blow!

COMBATSYS: Sylvie successfully hits K' with Guillo-Ton!.
- CRAZY Hit! -

[                       \\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
K'               0/-------/-<<<<<<|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Sylvie

K' slams back onto the deck, yelling out in pain at the impact. He then lets out a snarl of rage as he slams his palms against the deck before rolling to his feet. He then leaps at Sylvie, sweeping his right hand at the girl.

It's not a punch; there's no form or technique to it. It's not a slap or a claw, either. In fact, physical contact is not the aim at all apparently as whirling vortex of flame lashes out at Sylvie Paula Paula.

K' may be scrapping the job, in favor of scrapping Sylvie.

COMBATSYS: K' knocks away Sylvie with Air Trigger EX.

[                        \\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
K'               1/------=/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Sylvie

The form of K' - he keeps coming. Sylvie is actually surprised at this - surprised that he lunges. Surprised that he still assaults her. Surprised that he still /moves/. "Wha- but you're DO-" She's wrong. It becomes apparent the threat that is before her - and K' makes it very clear why he has an entire member of NESTS to deal with him. The sudden swirling fire that surrounds K' envelops Sylvie as well. Whirling vortexes of the energy engulf her and wrap her in the painful chi, licking at her form and swallowing her up.

Clothing scorches, body bleeds - the entirety of the woman's form finds itself skywards before crashing once more against the ground. Smoldering and smoking, Sylvie coughs and then hacks as she inhales burning bits of accessories and bits of her clothing. Only finally does she rise.

"Sylvie's feeling faint..." She complains as she struggles to her feet, staring down K', "Buuuut.. Sylvie is standing. Do you know what that means?" The girl takes off, hands shooting downwards, kicking her towards K' like a DBZ knock-off. Electromagnetics power her against the metallic ground, the woman reaching out with one hand.

"She's still in this, and you're about -OUT!" Even knocked away, even behind a wall of flame, Sylvie doesn't seem to give up - and is making it quite clear what her plans are as she rushes towards the man, hand reaching out to touch him, desperately.

If it touches, he might find himself a prisoner in an electromagnetic sphere where Sylvie would be able to throw him around into the crates and the walls before kicking him and the spherical electromagnetic prison away.

"So LOOONG, K'~!

COMBATSYS: Sylvie successfully hits K' with Magneto-Trapo!.

[                                < >  //////////                    ]
K'               1/---====/=======|>>>>>>>\-------\0           Sylvie

K' is trapped in the globe. Sylvie then uses the whole room as a weapon, smashing him into pretty much everything. He crashes to the deck, battered and broken. He gasps in pain, lacking air. Everything /hurts/. His muscles burn as his blood roars within him. You would think that that was enough to do the job.

You'd think wrong.

K' scrapes himself off the deck, staggering to his feet. He glares at Sylvie. He rips his sunglasses free, and hurls them at the girl!

COMBATSYS: K' can no longer fight.

[                    \\\\\\\\\\  <
Sylvie           0/-------/<<<<<<<|

COMBATSYS: Sylvie blocks K''s Chain Drive EX+.

[                        \\\\\\  <
Sylvie           1/------</<<<<<<<|

The glasses bounce off of Sylvie, and K' charges in. He catches the shades, donning them once more as he closes, before laying into Sylvie with a fusillade of punches, kicks, and flame bursts before delivering another of those one inch punches.

And then K' slumps to the deck, unconcious. Spent, as the flames around his right hand finally wink out.

The energy within Sylvie surges and is for once, let out to assault K'. The pain he feels is not shared by Sylvie - not at all. She knows the pain. She's experienced the pain. Possibly worse. Each swing Sylvie can feel herself closer to her perceived acceptance. Each swing causes Sylvie to put more power into the next. More and more, she swings for the fences until everything breaks free - Sylvie left gasping for air as she doubles over, hands on her knees as she looks up - at K' rising again. "D.. D'ont you .. s-stay down!" She proclaims exasperated, not even finding the energy to stamp her foot - but K' throws those glasses forwards.

Sylvie doesn't understand. "Wha-" Her reactions take precedence as she raises her hands and arms, as if to bat the glasses away. That doesn't happen. They bounce, Sylvie looks away.

She looks again.

Burning eyes. Burning fists. Each strike is barely met by Sylvie, the first punch causing her to stagger backwards, arms and limbs that answer her mental demand to put something in the way do so. Scorch marks reside on the first impact, numbing her left arm. The next fist impacts her right leg, knocking it away and causing Sylvie to hop back once. A kick catches the back of Sylvie's right hand - numbing it entirely. Her side takes a one-inch punch, then another, wordless cries as she staggers backwards, barely able to stand even after weathering the onslaught from K'.

Will it ever end? The pain wracks through her. Sylvie is answers as she hears something, eyes looking away. Something falls. She still stands - but... ? Eyes dart quickly over, out of the corner, to see the unmoving form of K'. Sylvie's eyes swell in understanding, her body reacts next - collapsing onto her rear as she falls back, hands resting on the ground besides her.

"..No way." Lost in her own world, Sylvie had always expected things to turn out differently. She was a failure. Born to fail entirely. Yet here she stood, sat, 'victorious'. Did it feel that way?


"Hehehe... EHEHEHE. Looks like you're a bigger failure THAN ME~!" The self loathing manifests itself in such laughter, the junk-girl staggering to her unsteady feet, "And noooow Sylvie's going to get ALL the rewards! I did it! I DID IT!~" Limping, slowly, out, Sylvie would make her way back to the captain.

As she drags herself out of the hold, out into the open, Sylvie would see the truth.

The captain and others were already in the lifeboats, waiting for K' to come out. Eyes open wide as she stares, silently, at all the others. They stare silently back. Sylvie twitches. "I... I WON, DAMNIT! Get out of the lifeboats....!" Reality has a cruel way of coming back around.

COMBATSYS: Sylvie has ended the fight here.
