SNF 2006.07 - Super Mimiru vs Aislinn!

Description: Saturday at the Mall--a showdown between Super Mimiru and 'The Silent Assassin'! ... Plus, a visit from a mysterious man who totally isn't Dr. Tran! (Winner: ???)

It's the weekend -- a sunny Saturday. Despite that, a lot of adolescents are out and about in the mall. Up to no good, probably and just hanging out and lounging about doing nothing, chatting and taking some space about. Though what catches everyone's attention is a particular set up for the incoming fight! And that catches a lot of attention from the younger folks, especially since Mimiru's out there fighting and, apparently, at least, from what Geese had told her, she appears to be quite popular amongst the younger audience. She feels like a star now, and, alas, he actually encouraged to keep up with her whole nonsense, something Mimiru was more than glad to partake in!
Her only regret is to have shared that information with Himeko, her best friend. Just leave it to her to transform Mimiru into... SUPER MIMIRU! Which is a little embarassing to say the least.
"Tee-hee! Don't worry, you'll be fine, trust me! It'll be real great! You just have to do it right in the middle of the whole fight and go on and do your best," Himeko tells her, adjusting her big round glasses. Mimiru whimpers a little and she says, "But I /always/ do my best, I can't do more..." Mimiru says.
Max, her dog, whines a little looking up at her and Mimiru merely ruffles his hair a little to recomfort him, "Eh, don't worry, leave everything to meet! I'm the superstar of Justice! I can't lose that one!" She says as she beams a bit at the thought. And of course, hearing the gathering crowd and people around her, Mimiru's just all the more reassured.

On the other hand... when Mimiru arrives at the fight site, she'll find Aislinn already there--standing in one of the corners. Completely alone, at least so it seems, standing there with wrists crossed in front of her, quiet murmurs coming from the crowd around her side. She has no friends to consult with, no Himeko to cheer her on or make outfits for her, or anything of the sort. She is, as one producer decided to 'market' her as, 'The Silent Assassin'. And in truth, she hardly speaks at all, and so it most likely just fits.
Naturally, there are some NESTS people in the audience, here and there, but she asked Candy and Kula not to come, as much as she might have found their presence to be comforting, and she doesn't consider the observers to be friends. Far from it. Even as Mimiru shows up, Aislinn is regarding the other girl quietly, her crystal-violet eyes fixed, intent.
And no. She is most definitely -not- crowd-popular.

Mimiru           0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0          Aislinn

Hoping into the fight scene, clad in her usual clothes, a pair of black pants and a white t-shirt, Mimiru merely lifts her arms up a little, stretching idly, though the gesture seems to earn the crowd a couple of cheers. Mimiru blinks a few times and she looks about, "Heheh," She laughs a bit and she makes victory signs with her fingers in the air, showing off a little as the crowd seems to like it. Doesn't take much to make a bunch of pre-adolescent kids happy. Yep! Mimiru could grow to like that a lot!
After a few preliminary stretch, Mimiru lifts her gaze up over to Aislinn and she hums softly, "Hum, never seen her around," Mimiru says, frowning a little. Of course, that causes Himeko to sigh a little, "You should know," Himeko says, lifting a finger up in the air as she speaks up, eyes closed as she shares her wisdom and knowledge with Mimiru, "That you should always know who you fight to better adapt to them. Gladly you have me," Himeko says with a grin, ajusting her glasses a bit, "Her name is Aislinn Doyle -- however, she is known as 'The Silent Assassin' for obvious reasons." Himeko explains.
"Silent Assassin, huh? Does sound like a lot of evil to me!"

Ai is very much a contrast to Mimiru; where Mimiru plays to the crowd, Aislinn takes as little notice of them as possible. It's very likely that this may cost her the fight, under Geese's terms, yet Ai cannot help it. It's just the way she is. She sits--well, stands--and waits, patiently, until the opening of the match is announced. This Silent Assassin thing isn't... it's new. But it may be a good moniker for her anyways. As for -evil-... she's more... amoral. But it would be arguing a fine point. Anyway, somewhere in there, 'FIGHT!' is called, and at that moment Aislinn takes off like a rocket, surging forward, straight for Mimiru, intending to close in and attempt to just snap a quick kick right into Mimiru's midsection. No fuss, no muss. And probably considered unsporting by the kids.
Not that Ai cares.

Mimiru           0/-------/-----==|-------\-------\0          Aislinn

When the 'FIGHT' is given by the announcer, Mimiru's still a little day-dreaming, as if pondering what Aislinn might have done or why she got that title. Of course, Himeko doesn't have the time to elaborate on the subject -- she seems way more focused on the battle at hand than Mimiru is, "Watch out Mimiru!" She shouts to her, to wake her up from her revery.
Unfortunately, her warning isn't quite fast enough. Mimiru blinks and she turns her head arund only to see Aislinn rushing over her. The crowd all gasps and some close their eyes as they don't want to see what will happen to the heroine as she gets 'sneak attacked'. Well, it's fair game and all, but still! Alas, Mimiru is totally caught by surprise and the kick to her midsection causes her to choke and cough a few times, bending over some and staggering back. Of course, the crowd 'boos'. The heroine has to win after all! But a real heroine wouldn't be one if she didn't take a real good beating only to have a SECOND WIND and then come back to beat up the villain!
Mimiru straightens herself up, still wincing as she stares at her, "Oh, I see, so that's how you want to play it," Mimiru says. Mimiru tries to lunge on Aislinn so she may get a hold of her waist and her shoulder, and with a good hold on her, she attempts to trip her and slam her down.

Mimiru           0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0          Aislinn

Mimiru recovers quickly, that's for sure; Aislinn is still regaining the last bit of her balance as Mimiru charges forward and trip-slams the 'Silent Assassin'. And true to that nickname she utters nary a sound as she hits the mat. Rather than try and get away, however, she attempts something similar to a technique seen in 'puroresu'--pro-wrestling. It's a bit of a departure for her.
Aislinn reaches out to try and grab one of Mimiru's arms and twist and turn to bring pressure on it and lock Mimiru, briefly, in what's known as an 'armbar'. Should she be successful in touching Mimiru, by the way, there will also be an added effect, a shock of red-white lightning chi.

Mimiru           0/-------/--=====|===----\-------\0          Aislinn

If she wants to go that way, Mimiru's fully equipped to deal with it! Her lips curl into a wide grin and she moves her hands in hope that she'll actually manage to reverse this in her favor and throw Aislinn off over her back. Alas, Mimiru doesn't seem to have that kind of luck and in the end, in the struggle for dominance over that little grapple, Mimiru gets on the losing end and Aislinn finally manages to twist Mimiru's arm about.
Himeko whimpers a bit and she shouts to Mimiru, "Come on! You can do better than that! Don't let her get you!" She shouts, "You just have to use your size to your advantage, slip free!" Mimiru winces and she growls, "Well! I'd like to see you here in my place and try to free yourself from -that-! Ouch,ouch!" Mimiru whimpers, bitting her lips a bit as she tries to figure out a way out of that one.

Aislinn isn't going to hang on forever, and she isn't going to take the armbar to its natural conclusion, which is a broken or dislocated shoulder. She releases the attack after a mental 'five count', then rises to her feet. If she's playing a role she seems to be fitting to it perfectly, as she backs off with a look that can be interpreted as snide... or just uninterested... that lightning chi crackling over her arms and gloved hands as she seems to be calling it up, the force detectable by Mimiru at least...

COMBATSYS: Aislinn gathers her will.

"Well... Guess she's pretty good with jujitsu and aikido, I'll just have to be a little more physical then..." Mimiru explains as she groans, attempting to ease the pressure she felt in her arm. Himeko winces a bit and she almost sweatdrops a bit, "Well actually -- she possesses a wide aray of techniques to adjust to her opponents, meaning that this is only one of the many facade she has. But don't worry, so do you!" Himeko reminds Mimiru with a wide grin, "The fight's just begun! Show her what you're made of!"
Lips curling into a wide grin, Mimiru nods and she says, "Right! I'll keep the best for last! Maybe she bests me when it comes to joint stuff, I'm a bit rusty, but I'll surprise her with my might!" Mimiru shouts. And with that, Mimiru rushes over Aislinn and she attempts to give her a powerful punch to her midsection.

Mimiru           0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1          Aislinn

Aislinn has been paying attention during this whole thing, of course, and with Mimiru actually calling out what she's going to do, she's more than prepared for when Mimiru actually rushes over. The punch? It's just taken, Aislinn doesn't even budge, just feels the fist hit her in the stomach, and her retaliation is... well, it's pretty swift, if not the swift-est-. Still no words from Ai, as she pushes back with her right foot, puts her left hand forward, and simultaneously leans forward, snaps her flat left hand into a fist, and pushes with her right, creating a swift attack intended to impact Mimiru right in the stomach.
The One Inch. Don't leave home without it, especially if little girls are here to punch you in the tummy.

Mimiru           1/-----==/=======|=======\==-----\1          Aislinn

Well that's one nasty counter attack Mimiru wasn't quite ready for! The girl gets knocked back a bit by the smashed fist in her tummy and she staggers back, only to fall on her butt shortly after. Looks like it's true to the usual scene setting -- the heroines always get a beating at first and then make a super come back eventually.
"Oh no!" Shouts Himeko, "Come on Mimiru, do something!" She tells her, "Don't just stand there like a doop and get beaten, you've got to use that fancy footsteps of yours and move some more! You can do much better than that!" Mimiru winces and she groans, "Heh! I'm doing what I can out here!" She says, glancing over to Himeko, twitching a little at Himeko's words. Himeko chuckles a bit nervously and she bites her lips, "Maybe it'd be time for you to use your secret weapon," Himeko says.
And just thinking about that, it causes Mimiru to blush, "What!? I, huh, well... Arg! Well, that's just one of your crazy idea... That's really..." Himeko shakes her head, wiggling a finger about, "Come on now! That's not the way to do it! You must TRANSFORM! Transform into Super Mimiru, Mimiru! And show everyone that Justice shall triumph!" Mimiru bites her lips a bite and she says, "Yeah, but..." Himeko grunts and she replies, "There's no but in the matter! Transform!" She says with a wide grin, shaking her hands a bit and hopping back and forth, "Transform, transform, transform," And... As if following her, a bunch of people in the crowd keeps on repeating it, and it grows louder and louder and louder... Ack.
Looks like she has no choice at all. She'll have to transform in front of everyone using her super powers! Rising back to her feet, Mimiru's blush only deepens and she says, "Alright... Super Lunar Transformation Makeup! Waaaah!" And while people would expect her clothes to burst magically and her to be all nude for a moment as her new outfit covers her, Mimiru doesn't have that much animation budget alas...
Instead, she merely gets a hold of her shirt with one hand and her pants with the other and she pulls real hard, tearing them off from her body -- looks like she was wearing clothes made especially for that. Like stripper clothes that tears off fairly easily like this, without making a mess. And right underneath lies... SUPER MIMIRU'S COSTUME!!
Nothing more embarassing than a black frilly skirt that goes down mid-thighs along with a sleeveless shirt that covers her torso! And with the clothes being through about, Mimiru has enough time to quickly put on a tiara on her forehead -- yep, the Moon Tiara!(Even if she never found it, still...).
"Here I am, Super Mimiru!" She says, striking a pose for the crowd to cheer at. Mimiru points a finger over Aislinn and she makes her speech, "You that lives in the darkness, I, Super Mimiru, ally of Justice, shall defeat you and your evil ways! Because in the end, Justice always prevail! Justice shall triumph once more and you shall claim no more innocent's lives! Have you no consciousness at all, defiler of lives? I shall

I shall punish you for what you have done! Now prepare yourself to take a beating! I'll give it my best, here comes the ultimae Super Mimiru Punch!!!"
And the crowd goes wild, here comes the moment they've been waiting for, for such a long time!

COMBATSYS: Mimiru gains composure.

Mimiru           1/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1          Aislinn

Right... The crowd's about to get what they want but Mimiru just freezes a moment. Her face almost becomes blue and she chokes a bit. Looks like she forgot to take some air during her speech or something. Well it was long-winded and all. So she coughs a bit and takes her breath. Alas for the crowd, they'll have to wait a bit.
She coughs and says, "Just after I take my breath back... But you will not escape this!"

All that. That was quite the impressive show there, and surely the crowd loves it. They're cheering, whistling, and none of it is for Ai. Does that vex her? Well... it might. But it's internalized, if it does. She'll probably talk to Candy about it later. As it is... she waits patiently, having watched those shows that Kula loves so enough to recognize the tropes and conventions. Were she more vocal--were she so inclined--she might give Mimiru a look and say 'is that it?' But what can be said in several words comes through in a single piercing look from those violet eyes. A look that combines 'I can't believe I'm here' with 'I can't believe you did that.'
Needless to say, Aislinn isn't interested in Super Mimiru or her choking on air. What she -is- interested in is getting a read on her opponent. While it's true that Mimiru may seem silly... time is the only way one can tell who will grow up to be a menace... and who will grow up to be a Dan. Aislinn, it seems, takes no chances.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn focuses on her next action.

Mimiru           1/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1          Aislinn

It's not like Mimiru's sensi is Dan! And beside, she's learning to be less and less silly! Doesn't help that Geese and Himeko nudged her to put up that whole show, but everyone seems to enjoy it so Mimiru plays along, "Taste the fist of justice!" Mimiru shouts as she rushes over Aislinn, fingers curling up together into a fist as she dashes toward Aislinn.
The white flame of good shine brightly around Mimiru's fist and she swings her flamming fist right over Aislinn, attempting to smack JUSTICE into her forehead it would seem with the almighty Super Mimiru Punch that made her so... Well, so well known for her own special customized style!

COMBATSYS: Aislinn blocks Mimiru's Super Mimiru Punch.

The fist of justice, hey? Super Mimiru Punch? Only so-so! Aislinn calmly takes Mimiru's measure while the girl charges in with that charged-energy punch. And her reaction is swift; she snaps a hand up, intercepting, concealing the faintest of winces as the 'good' energy leaves a bit of a sting.
Finally, the 'Silent Assassin' speaks, not that her voice carries very far... far enough for the closest ring of audience to hear.
"Ineffective," she says to Mimiru, as she releases the hand, pushing to try and knock Mimiru off balance so that she can create just enough room for Aislinn to move. In fact, she steps in, seemingly following Mimiru... but lagging behind just a touch. She spins forward as she moves, slashing out with flattened hands... her aim not to hit Mimiru with the limbs, or extremities, but rather with a flat, circular wave of lightning chi that expands outwards briefly.

Mimiru           1/----===/=======|=======\====---\1          Aislinn

With just a bit of luck, Mimiru manages to pull quite a stunt here. She doesn't manage to avoid the incoming blast of electric chi, but her body doesn't get it fully by it. It merely grazes her and the electric burns off a bit of her cloth. Mimiru growls and she staggers back, one hand going up to her shoulder a bit, "Huh... Don't be overconfident, villain! There's still plenty of stuff left for me to use!" Mimiru shouts.
She straightens herself up and she closes her eyes for a moment, "If you think you have gotten rid of me, then you are mistaken! Justice always triump!" Mimiru claims as she strikes yet another pose.
And here comes even more justice! Mimiru leaps up in the air and she spins around, swirling about as the fire of justice burns on her right leg as she soars down on Aislinn, attempting to drop-kick her with a Super Kick of Justice!

Mimiru           2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0          Aislinn

Overconfident? Or -just- confident? Aislinn... almost smiles. The corners of her lips tweak upwards for approximately 1/10th of a second. It's only overconfidence if you fail. She tracks Mimiru's movements, visually, almost bouncing on the balls of her feet... as Mimiru comes in with the impact of the chi-flared dropkick, Aislinn shifts her body, letting Mimiru take her in the shoulder. Why? A ruse. The shoulder impact begins a quick spin on Aislinn's part, and just as Mimiru is set to land...
That, dear readers, is the sounds made as actinic, red-white flashes of chi explode while Aislinn is practically dancing forward, spinning, whipping her arms out, catching Mimiru with blast after blast of electric chi, exactly like the circular shot that Aislinn caught her with previously. Five times 'round, then on the last spin, Aislinn comes to a stop, and lifts her hands up, as if she were a cold, passionless conductor of a symphony. A symphony of pain for Mimiru as the last attack is a blade of that same red-white chi, sliding up out of the floor and into Mimiru's body at a 30 degree angle, to send her flying.

Off flying Mimiru is and the girl lands down to the ground not too far away from all of the this. The crowd doesn't seem all that happy about the outcome of things and they try to cheer up Mimiru so she doesn't give up! Justice has to prevail in the end, right? Mimiru grunts a little and she bites her lips a bit. She's not feeling all that well and in her shape, the end is pretty near, "Damn, I thought those kind of matches were all made up," She whispers to herself. Looks like not! Still she has to fight to the very end, doesn't she? Well at least that's what Himeko's shouting her! Though things are a little blurry now.
Mimiru rises up once more! She's still standing, there's still some hope for justice! The crowd cheers and everyone is happy. Mimiru bites her lips and she staggers a little. She dashes over toward Aislinn, without the grace she may have had at the beginning but she's starting to be exhausted and she's pretty beaten. Still she tries to give her a kneeshot in her midsection.

That is a knee-shot well-earned; Aislinn folds at the hit, not feeling too happy about it. Truth be told... she's a little tired, herself, but not really able to worry about it too much. Staggered by the knee shot, she considers her options, briefly... before just returning fire with a knee of her own. It's rather... well, it's seen in Jean-Claude Van Damme films a lot, though with more macho yelling and sideslapping as the Muscles from Brussels slaps his side and invites more pain.
But that's a movie, and this is real life. So there's no yelling, nothing of the such... just a quick knee in turn.

Mimiru           2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0          Aislinn

Unfortunately, this is the end of the line for Mimiru. She's already pretty exhausted and despite her best effort to try and avoid that incoming kick, she fails to and she just gasps a little as the air is knocked out of her and the valiant fighter of justice collapse to the ground. Looks like the crowd's support wasn't really enough to help out Mimiru win in the end.
Give a little more for the crowd, just one last bit? Arg, well she doesn't even have the energy for that, alas, and so, she just lies there on the ground, and the crowd is in tears.

Rather reluctantly, it seems, the announcer calls out, "And... Mimiru has fallen! Aislinn Doyle, the Silent Assassin, is the winner!" Of course there's no cheering for her, just some scattered applause as those who respect the fight honor her... and it should be noted she didn't really fight 'without' honor.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn gains composure.

Aislinn          0/-------/--=====|

No sooner are the words out of the announcer's mouth than a figure clad in a trenchcoat, leaning on a crutch, takes a step forward. A fedora is pulled low over his eyes, masking most of his face, which in any case appears to have a hankerchief tied around it, bandit-style. The glint of sunglasses can just barely be seen between the different pieces of headgear.
The man tosses the steel crutch into the air, grabbing it in both hands by the bottom, and then charges. Swinging it around in a wide arc like a baseball bat, he shouts out in a low, gutteral voice, "Congratulations on your win! Have a prize!"

COMBATSYS: Tran has joined the fight here.

*WHANG* Caught offguard? Pain-slowed? Whatever reason there is, Tran's 'warning' comes with not enough time to let Aislinn get out of the way and she is head-crunched by the weapon. This was unexpected. However... Aislinn is quick to react as well, despite the new, powerful throb in her head, and she grabs for one of the Tensabarrier(tm) pods, intent on doing much the same to Tran's -face-.

For his part, the mysterious man who most definately is /not/ Tran coughs, in a much lighter tone than his previous proclimation, and raises his crutch high above his head, readying for a second blow. However, he pauses. Why? To talk, of course, in the same low, gravelly tone of before.

"Still up, huh? I guess you're tougher th-" He doesn't get further than that, because it's at that time that the man gets nailed directly in the face. He sprawls backward, crutch flying from temporarily unresponsive hands. He groans, rolling over and getting up on his hands and knees, slowing coming to his feet.

Whether the SNF officials are surprised or not, they apparently intend to let this continue. Aislinn drops her makeshift weapon, gazing down at the mysterious man with a light frown. She walks over and basically just attempts to grab him by the back of the neck. Should she succeed? Well, from there it'll be a face-skidding toss along the floor of the match arena.
Apparently, somewhere in that impassive face... Ai is kinda mad.

With one hand while still on his knees, the man pushes his fedora down a bit, making sure it's still firmly on his head. Exhaling heavily, he peeks back over toward Aislinn, and then just as she's about to grab him, he drops to the floor, rolling about and swinging both of his legs around to try to knock Aislinn off of her feet. Somewhere while doing this, he starts to laugh, and then cuts it off, turning it into another cough. This 'incognito' stuff is harder than it seems.

Also harder than it seems--making decisions when one is tired and already worn out from fighting. Aislinn turns, and is... popped, before she can start anything. She rolls, bounces, rolls once more... and is she out of it? Well.... not -quite- yet. She rises, unsteadily, body quivering... but what's this? Are people cheering her on? Is it because she was sneak-attacked? Or is it just because Tran smells bad and his mother's a whore?!?

The fact that not-Tran smells terrible is sheer cooincidence, I assure you, and his mother is a /saint/. In any case, body odor aside, he's up on his feet much more swiftly than Aislinn is. One can only assume by his posture that he's grinning triumphantly under that mask. "Sorry, girl, it's nothing personal, but I've got a message to deliver, and it sounds better right after I've kicked the crap out of somebody." Taking a couple of steps forward, the man then breaks into a run, looking to snap a quick punch off into Aislinn's gut, trying to put her down for keeps.

Tran             0/-------/-======|=======\=====--\1          Aislinn

Aislinn was in no condition to keep fighting. But she does anyways. It's a dogged persistence that was bred into her. However... persistence can't help in this case. She's stomach-pounded, and she sinks to her knees, clearly done.
Wait, not yet. First she points her hands in Tran's direction and upwards and attempts to riddle him with a cone-shaped shotgun-like blast of thin, foot-long lightning chi needles, saturating the area. It's a fitting, fireworks-like finisher, hit or miss.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn can no longer fight.

Sadly for Aislinn, not-Tran barely gives her a chance to get the attack off at all. As she raises her hands, he raises his, and her storm of lightning immediately meets a pair of thin, steely-grey discs, formed in an instant out of nothing. The lightning hits and bounces right back into Aislinn's face, where presumably their effect is less than present. The man freezes in that position, letting the discs fade away into nothing. When he's sure she's down for the count, he slowly straightens, and then turns toward a camera. He point directly at it with one hand, and then at Aislinn with another. Then, he makes an announcement in that deep, obvious fake voice.

"As I mentioned to our poor, beaten friend, here, this is not simply a random ass-kicking! This is a declaration of war!" The man coughs a couple of times, and then continues, his voice growing more raspy, "And who, you may ask, am I going to war against? The answer is simple: I'm going to war against the forces of order! Look at her, over there." He motions to Aislinn again. "Silent, obedient, deadly...BORING.
