SNF 2006.08 - Frosty! Kriz vs Hinako/Yuri

Description: Krizalid's just trying to stay cool, but Hinako and Yuri are heatin' things up like whoas! (Winner: Krizalid)

So this is what people in Turkey consider a 'lovely day'? It's so hot and dry out here that Krizalid's long since relinquished his signature coat. Something he doesn't normally do. At least there's some wind out here on the bridge where he was told his match was to be fought a little under an hour ago. And he of course, intends to face into that wind to try and keep cool until his opponents arrive. Nevermind that the sun is also coming in from that direction. It's not like he's fair skinned the way one would expect an Irishman to be.
"Come on already. I just want to get this thing over with as soon as humanly possible." And then... yeah, he'll go mess around with the cryo chambers back at the labs. Forget A/C.

COMBATSYS: Krizalid has started a fight here.

"Well, you could just lose right now, and we could all head home. But me, I think I'm gonna go shopping afterwards!"

Yuri Sakazaki's perfectly willing to banter about with the grousing man she's supposed to fight, grinning a bit as she heads onto the bridge as well! This should be an exciting battle, as she's actually working with someone she's fought recently and respects. Better than getting teamed up with, say, a psychopath. Er, sorry Iori.

"Whenever you're ready, buddy - I'll show you the true power of Kyokugen." Confident and hyper, she's even willing to give over the first move - taking her time to set herself up, getting her stretche in and everything! This should be a great fight!

COMBATSYS: Yuri has joined the fight here on the right meter side.

Hinako stands beside Yuri on the bridge, the wind blowing her long blonde hair out behind her dramatically, as well as causing the hem of her dress to flutter. "That's right! You may find this to be a better more difficult than you'd like!" Hinako doesn't usually fight with a partner, but it shouldn't be that difficult, right? If nothing else, she's good at knocking people down or holding them in place, which should allow someone else to hit them relatively easily.
Hinako takes a deep breath, then slams her fists together. She forgoes doing her usual opening stomp, since it's entirely possible she could cause some structural damage. There'll probably be enough of that as it is, and she'd rather not end up in the water if it can be avoided. "Let's go!"

Krizalid eases back off of the bridge's railing when he hears the Sakazaki girl chime in and give her two cents. "True, true. But that isn't how a guy like me operates. I don't deal very well with... disappointment. And there's almost nothing that would disappoint me more than leaving this bridge without getting the fight I came all the way out to this godforsaken place for." And by 'godforsaken', you realize, he probably means that Igniz forsakes it.
Squinting a bit then, and starting to wag a finger over at Hinako, the man nods his head. "See... I don't mind that. You two make this as difficult as you want, but just try to make it snappy. I've got a stopwatch in this suit, I'll be keeping track of the time." His fancy battle suit starts booting up soon after he says that, and as soon as all the cool lighting effects stop, he doesn't waste any time selecting a target and running at her full-tilt. It looks like the blonde is the one he intends to try and put the hurt on first, with a well-placed shoulder. "Rrrah!"

"Well, there have been _worse_ places... And you won't be talking like that after too much longer!" Yuri's willing to go ahead and say that this is one of the more far-away places she's been. It is, however, a okay place and not that godforsaken. Maybe they can use that he doesn't like it to their advantage...

"Look out, Hinako!" Yuri's totally got Hinako's back - except she's at Hinako's side. So when Krizalid comes rushing in, Yuri just sidesteps, and then brings both her legs up in a flying kick at Kriz's back. Time to work on giving the guy a chiropractic adjustment!

Hinako braces her feet on the bridge, preparing herself for the charging man from NESTS. She can deal with getting hit by sumo wrestlers, so how bad can this be? Pretty bad, actually, as Hinako gets knocked right off her feet and goes rolling back head over heels along the bridge before finally coming to a stop on her back.
"...Ow." Even with the pain from the impact, the shock of getting bowled over like that is even worse for Hinako. Still, if she'd been prepared she /probably/ could have stayed standing. Hinako climbs back to her feet, brushing herself off. "It- It's going to take more than that!" While Yuri is attack Krizalid, Hinako rushes back in, moving past her partner in an attempt to grab Krizalid by the upper arm on one side, and slipping her other hand under his other arm to yank him off his feet and slam him into the bridge.

Well you see, it's not just the heat that's bothering Krizalid. He has this thing about fighting over water, on flimsy bridges like this. If this were say, a more modern type of bridge, something more solid, he probably wouldn't worry as much, but he's actually probably about twice as concerned as Hinako about the structural integrity of this Turkish-made bridge they're doing battle on. Hence, why he goes for a tackle, rather than one of his more-favored heel kicks. But it's not a very orthodox tackle. He leans really far into it, and throws his whole body behind it, and this probably has something to do with the fact that neither Yuri or Hinako can quite get him to stop. Yuri just completely misses the mark, and Hinako finds herself getting struck with all the force of a truck. And while it takes the NESTS executive a moment to straighten rise back to his full high, leaving him seemingly open to retaliation, his stance is still incredibly solid. The young blonde girl gets hold of his arm, and she's able to drag him back to an awkward angle that does look a little painful, but he never quite loses his fitting. "Rrgh. That strength /is/ rather peculiar for one of your stature, but so far this is far from difficult." And along with that remark, comes a sudden wrenching of that arm from her grip, and then, claws. Steel taloned fingertips that seek to cleave into her shoulders while she's still close. Looks like for now, the Sakazaki girl is being ignored.

"Oh, come *ON*!" Yuri's pretty damn peeved at being basically ignored, getting herself up to her feet and rebracing herself on the bridge. She watches Hinako get pasted, and then fumes as Krizalid keeps the attack up on the other girl. This can't be allowed!

"You afraid I'm gonna cause you problems? C'mon, let's go! Right now!" Whipping her hands up together, she draws her fighting spirit into her core, and then gathers it in her hands. Red-gold chi flares up, and she hurls the ball at Krizalid, trying to get his attention any way she can! She's got Hinako's back! She's gonna stand up for her battlin' buddy! "KO'OU KEN!"

Claws? Hinako wasn't expecting claws! She grits her teeth as they sink deep into her shoulders, drawing blood. Still, it's going to take at least a bit more than this to beat Hinako. ...Probably not much more, given how badly she's getting beaten, but more nonetheless. "Well..." She winces for a moment. "Let's see how you like this!"
Hinako swings both of her arms back, ignoring the way it causes the talons to cause further damage to her arms, and then she thrusts both hands forward with all the strength she can muster, intending to slam them both into the center of Krizalid's chest. Time to see if NESTS technology can stand up to a blow that could probably put a decent dent in tank armor.

Yeah, staying in close to press the attack like that can be a double-edged sword. And it's an even harder thing to deal with when you're trying to avoid being fireballed at the same time, but, them's the brakes. The Irishman is crashed into by the smaller girl, and thrown back quite a ways. The wind gets knocked right out of him, and his eyes kind of bug out for a minute, but again he refuses to let it knock him down for even a second. He doesn't even take a knee for that matter, because he's still got a fireball coming at him.
"UNGH." That's a pretty loud grunt, and while it's more to clear his lungs than anything else, it also serves as a little sound effect to go along with the impressive leap he does to vault clear over the Ko'ou Ken. "Sorry dear, try again. That was... definitely difficult though. I'll admit to that." However, he's now dangerously close to Hinako again, and this time it's not a shoulder he's throwing at her. That looks more like a massive clothesline of some sort. Only, at the last second he ends up changing direction ducking out of sight, to try and come around from behind and stab her in the back with the points of those talons.


Yuri's frustration is easily heard as te ball misses underneath the man, crashing to the far end of the bridge without much more to do. It sends up a small explosion of rocks and dirt... and probably doesn't loosen the supports any, oh no. Yuri's already moving on - giving Hinako a quick thumb's up for the strike. Damn good work!

"Difficult? You'll see difficult!" This time, Yuri is closing in. She draws herself up into a ball, and then leaps at Krizalid's head. As she does, her foot lashes out in a quick swipe, trying to give him a nice Converse imprint along his cheek. She's determined, this time - and she won't let herself miss again!

Hinako narrows her eyes as Krizalid comes rushing in. /This/ time she needs to stop him. She's not going to let herself get knocked over again- Wait, where'd he go? The next thing she knows, Krizalid's talons are sinking into her back. She staggers forward, managing to avoid anything other than a flesh wound, but it's still a pretty deep one. And combined with her other wounds, she's losing blood pretty rapidly.
Even as beat up as she is, though, Hinako still has some fight left in her. Taking a deep breath she spins around and lunges at Krizalid. "Hyah!" Coming in from the opposite side as Yuri, Hinako leaps up in an attempt to crash into Krizalid with her full weight, intending to drive him down into (and hopefully /through/) the bridge. She might prefer not to get wet, but /something/ needs to be done.

Well, it does look like it's about time to start paying attention to Yuri. But, Krizalid still can't give her his full attention it seems, and that does end up costing him. His face is impacted with sneaker, and to his surprise, it does strike solidly enough to make his neck pop a bit. He can also feel the sting of the mark it's going to leave behind. Despite any annoyance he feels, however, he keeps his eyes on the injured blonde. This is a man who doesn't like to take chances, and while he figures she's about out of juice, he's not ready to just turn his back on her. After all, another of those hits like before would probably probably do more than just crack /his/ armor. And if any of the circuitry on it gets too damaged, getting it wet after that could turn out to be really hazardous.
And, long story short, as soon as he sees Hinako -flinch- he's on her. She leaps up, and he swats her right out of the air with a vicious hammerfist while breaking into another run. "I'm well aware of the fact that you can break this bridge in half if allowed to. Don't try it again! And as for you, Miss Sakazaki, yes, I do consider you to be a nuisance. But it's nothing personal. I just haven't come up with a good strategy for dealing with your father's fighting style at this juncture. But by all means, come and show me what you know of it."

"Hinako!!!" Yuri's eyes go wide as Krizalid swats the girl with his hand, and she's certain that it wasn't good at all. She's got to help her teammate out, somehow! Yuri hasn't been helping all that much yet, so she tries to start stepping up to the plate again. Facing down the opponent, do daddy proud, etc. Or at least, maybe she can be a distraction for Hinako's next attack!

"Well, then - you're going to have to deal with not learning Kyokugen style today - you get the Yuri Sakazaki P-O'd special!" With that, she rushes headlong in, whipping her hand around in nothing more than a swipe at that same spot she popped before. Time to see if she can leave a full-on mark today!

Hinako gets smacked right out of her leap, sending her crashing back down to the bridge, although she at least doesn't go into the water. So now she's bleeding heavily and she probably has a concussion. Even so, she staggers back to her feet, fists clenched. "I... I'm not done yet!"
Lunging at Krizalid once more, Hinako stretches out her arm in an attempt to clothesline him then wrap her arm around his neck...

While the theory behind Yuri's strategy is a sound one, Krizalid doesn't really take it as an insult the way she wants. When she goes and says she's going to give him something /other/ that the specific data he's looking for, his only response is to turn away from her with a quick, "Oh, well then." as a forearm comes up to repel her fist, at about the same time the other arm comes up for Hinako to slam herself into. No clotheslining is allowed to occur, but, the fact remains that the young woman is capable of substantial force, so it's enough too make him grunt, and skid back a foot a two before he's kick her off of him. And while he's at it, he tries to carry said kick through to see if he can catch Yuri off guard and take out one of her legs with it.

Yuri's pretty sure she heard something snap when the kick comes in - hopefully, it's not anything important. When she lands, her left knee buckles, and she collapses onto the bridge, scrabbling for purchase. Not a good start, not at all. "C'mon... You can do.. better than that!" Time to pull out as much as she can muster - time to give him whatfor.

And whatfor it is. Yuri staggers back up, and swipes her bum leg around and about, trying to whip it right at him as she leaps. If she hits with it, well - she'll spin and do it again, and again. "You can't take us down _that_ easy, you ... you... loser!"

And as for Hinako... She staggers back for a few moments after getting knocked away from Krizalid, then slowly topples over onto her back.

"Ohh, but why should I? We're making pretty good time from the looks of things. And besides, you just got through saying you weren't going to show me anymore of your family's precious fighting art. That's really all I'm interested in so if you're not going to cooper- ATE! Ow! What..! The..!" Yes, there's one extra syllable in there. But that's because the first one was just him shouting suddenly as he realized it was already too late to counter her attack. The other grunted syllables come with each kick to the head he recieves, of course. And while he's reeling and holding his head for a moment, the man utters a threat. "Yargh! I'll make you regret that!"

"... Heh! That clock's gonna run a little bit longer, huh? Guess we're not that boring..." Yuri's still hurting, but the fact that she actually gave Kriz a nice big set of hits is making her feel a bit better. She's not going to count him out, hell no - but she's feeling a little bit better about the batte now.

"Hang on, Hinako! We're gonna get him!" she calls over her shoulder, trying to balance her leg and test it - it'll hold her weight for at least a bit longer. Not a large amoount of time, but ... long enough to finish this fight, one way or another. Stepping in, she fakes a jab, then another, then drops down and tries to get underneath Krizalid's guard, swinging a wild uppercut at his jaw. "C'MON!"

Boxing is it? One of the few styles Krizalid learned on his own before joining NESTS, and the one that Irishman in particular are known for. "Just a bit. But I think you're underestimating my efficiency in dealing with matters such as these."
Is... is that a joke? He's not doing anything but cracking his knuckles.

...after bobbing and weaving his way out of Yuri's little fakeouts and backing himself just out of rang of that crazy uppercut.

"... Nh. Fine - let's go with some other style, then!" Yuri, after all, has a million of them! Maybe a million and one! Two, even! Her current favorite is also an Irish one. It's called 'pub brawl'. Very simple, even a silly Japanese girl can get the gist of it - though she may not be able to make it deal with it's intracacies. Easy to learn, lifetime and liver damage to master, etc.

Reaching down, she grabs one of the bridge's spars, and rips it up and out. Holding it in her arms, she yells out in badly accented english. "OI! NUTTER WANTS A BEATIN', NUTTER GETS A BEATIN'!" With her statement made, she pulls back and hauls off, trying to clock Krizalid upside the head. She'll show him!

Krizalid has enough of a headache, thanks. Three kicks to the head, and the slight jarring his head got before from the kick before that which he owes the sneaker-print on his face to. His hands come up at the right moment, and he catches the weapon before trying to drag it out of her hands. "Cute." Whether or not he gets it away from her with this token attempt is kind of irrelevant though, because his real intent seems to be cutting his way through it and into her with one of those wicked claws.

Far be it for Yuri to give up something she's decided to do. She's lost the board, but she's not feeling _any_ pain from the slashing cuts of Kriz's attack. Clothing rips (but not indecently so!) and skin tears, but she still stands up, growling under her breath. Maybe she's borrowing just a little from her old Second Victory partner, Iori 'crazy man' Yagami. Or else she's just gone off the deep end. That's probably much more likely, with the way she starts to slap herself. Cheeks slapped again and again, she psyches herself up, then breaks into a blurred motion, dropping down to the floor, and coming up in a wide swing. Not for Kriz's chin - oh noes, she's aiming for her uppercut to hit lower. Lots lower.

Well, while he totally didn't see that coming, Krizalid has had this sort of thing happen to him before. Thankfully, he's not completely unprotected, even if he isn't able to brace or do something before he takes that punch to his groin. "Nngh. You know, that only works when you're capable of hitting hard. You're still just a little girl." Don't get him wrong, he's still plenty upset, and he'll still probably have to go put some ice on that later, but for now, he's shrugging it off and coming back at her with the heaviest haymaker he can manage.

"Can't hit hard? Can't hit ha..?!" Yuri's quickly choked off as she takes the thrown punch right in the face, staggering backwards. She's temporarily blinded by pain, and dizzy from the impact. She doesn't fall down though, doesnt give Krizalid that satisfaction yet - though it's obvious that she's on her last legs. "Nh... C'mon - hit me harder, you big... big... baby." She beckons him on, looking over to the cameras. They're going to get a good show - but in the end, it may be a little bit too little, too late.

"Oh but that was satisfying. I'm not sure if I really need to... But, if you're really that eager to get on with your shopping I suppose I /can/ help you with your exit! Here!" It's no punch that he throws this time. He goes right for the throat, and attempts to lift Yuri up off the bridge, and then slam her right back down through it into the waters below.

Yuri doesn't really get to say anything more. No, no she doesn't. In fact, she's pretty much down and out now, hitting and bouncing off the bridge, wood shattering and buckling under the impact. One bounce, two bounce, red bounce... but no blue bounce. Instead, she catches herself on the third, wiping blood from her chin, and then channelling all her energy into one last attack - one more for the road, one for the gipper, one to grow on... you get the drift. She winds her hand back, and whips it at Krizalid's forhead, in an effort to give him something to remember her and Hinako by!

Krizalid looks a little surprised he wasn't able to put Yuri far enough through the bridge, but whatever. He has his satisfaction, and he's pretty confident that no matter how much strength Takuma's daughter has left in her, it won't be enough to take him down unless she finds some weakspot he doesn't know he has. In fact, he's so confident that he just stands there and lets her hit him, and then waits for her to fall. It's not just to try and be a tough guy though... "Thank you. I was hoping I might get some data on a move of that variety at some point. Weak or not, you've at least got the form right."
And so, wiping a bit of blood from his lip with the back of his hand, Krizalid starts to turn and leave, pushing his way through the crowd at one end of the bridge and heading toward the helicopter that's been waiting for him. "Shut up. I know how late I am. Let's just get out of here."
