Neo League 570 - #598: Iincyo vs Zach

Description: Iincyo shows Zach the power of motivation and positive thinking, knocking the ranked Neo League fighter down a notch in a knock-down, drag-out fight! (Winner: Iincyo)

There's one thing you can be sure of.

Antarctica is cold. Incredibly so.

The Neo League representatives have flown in, or at least Helicoptor'd the two Neo League competitors over across the world to this ice pit, and are currently making the ring.

OF ICE. A zamboni is actually making the ice smoother, insuring you're either quick on your feet, and stable, or you'll be on your seat. And pretty darn hurt! But the point is.. the various staff of Neo League are setting up. A medic is on hand, because of IIncyo's unfortunate track record of injury, and also a rather warm tent.. for obvious reasons. At this point, that's where Chairperson is.

As the zamboni, for some reason in Antarctica, drives back onto the plane, the signal is started to let the various competitors today of Neo League out and onto THE ICE. And Chairperson peeks her head out, wincing at the cold. "Y-You .. really weren't kidding...." Oh what did she expect? Walking out of the tent, she takes a deep breathe, and heads towards the ring, clad in ..

Ultra short gym shorts, which leave her entire legs exposed. A jacket hanging off her back. And a thin, white shirt.

Almost falling immediately after stepping onto the ice, Iincyo is suddenly shivering up a storm, arms crossed as she tries to bare it. "W-Why d-did I a-agree t-t-to t-t-this." She says, teeth chattering.

Zach is bundled up a bit, but he's plenty cold as well. He just doesn't seem to mind as much.

Zach carefully makes his way onto the slicked ice, remembering his Jinchuu fight against Himeko in the frozen cargo hold. Not that this grants him any advantage; there is nothing to brace himself up on.

"Ready when you are," Zach says as he expels a good amount of fog. There's no point in maintaining a fighting stance right now. It'll just break as soon as he tries to move.

Zach             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach did the right choice. She didn't bring anything because she didn't think of it, honestly, and to believe that they weren't completely insane for suggesting such a thing.

Well. That's the last time she disbelieves any of those tales. That's for sure. Maybe this is normal due to the large amount of fire spewing fighters out there .. but she's not one of them! That's the problem, in reality.

"I'm R-R-Ready as I-I-i'll ever be." Maybe she'll be quick on her feet this time, what with her arms and legs almost frozen already. Movement would be good for that.. and oddly enough, she falls into a stance herself.

Zach might not realize it, not, but he's fighting HIMEKO'S ... something. A friend! That's at least true. And a fellow member of Saikyo. Nearly slipping, she at least lands it. "Alright..." Maybe she's learned something from the past fights.

Iincyo's pose was that. Yes.

Zach decides to get things started as he regards Iincyo's stance. Something's... vaguely familiar here. He's just not sure what.

He settles a bit, before sweeping an arm towards the Taiyo student. A ball of purple energy sails towards Iincyo kind of fast.

Zach             0/-------/------=|==-----\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach sends a ball of purple energy towards Iincyo, it catches her as she tries to move, even if she tries to leap out of the way. In the end .. it just doesn't work. She's tossed to the side from the force, easily, and it's rather normal to her.. to get tossed around. The frigid temperatures don't help much either.. and in the end, IIncyo's not enjoying herself from the beginning.

Not that Marisol didn't hit harder, of course.

Shaking herself off, Chairperson pulls herself from the snow, and slides forwards.. literately sliding. She didn't expect such. "Hah.. WIND STANCE!" But her aim isn't simply to strike Zach.. it's to strike his arms, with her palms, before finally lunging for him, and his chest, to knock the wind out of him .. and disrupt him a bit.

Zach             0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach exhales sharply as Iincyo punches the wind out of him. Maybe that is why it's called the Wind Stance? Who knows? Zach stumbles, falls on his rear end, and slides across the ice. He sits there for a moment before slowly pulling himself upright.

He raises his hands, as he inhales. Three sheets of that purple energy form as Zach sweeps his hands downward. The attack slams for Iincyo rather sharply. She is not the only one with a legendary fighting style. Will it be Saikyo versus Todoh Ryu?

Zach             0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach stumbles, falling on his rear and sliding back, Chairperson watches on, arms and legs almost numb, but the motion, out of everything, the thing keeping her up and active. "Hah... so cold." She comments to herself, as Zach sits up, and then pulls himself off the ground. She's never seen this before. This boy at least. It's a fighting style that .. she knows she had seen before on the Leagues and Saturday Night Fights, at least.

But as his hand sweeps downwards, Chairperson is sure of one thing.

She doesn't want to get hit by something like THAT again. Still running high from the failed attempt before, she slides under the first purple energy sheet, before she kicks to the side on the ice, barely, another skip, traction gained from almost ice skating without any skates, as she lunges towards Zach with a fist, this time, using her motion to travel straight to him .. but he just might not be there anymore!

"I .. can't believe the Arctic .. of all places! .." She comments. And .. she's not talking much!?

"It =is= seriously cold here. Sorry about this," Zach quips as he pivots away from Iincyo before grabbing for the girl's punching arm. Continuing his twist, he bears the smaller girl down to the ice before unleashing a small burst of that violet power.

With Zach's grab, he helps her, oddly enough, slowing her just enough that she's able to prevent herself from being tossed about.. and then Zach aims to twist her into the ground, the violent power ripping through it.. she doesn't let it get that far, however.

"Hah... R-right.. It is." She says. "Sorry? You didn't set this spot up." That's what she thinks, and it's more or less right. But as Zach is forced to let go, she twists about. While she may have missed with her fist, her legs come around, kicking up, towards his body as she passes.

"Corkscrew kick!" No. It's not named that.

Himeko is just contagious.

COMBATSYS: Zach interrupts Light Kick from Iincyo with Third Stance.

Zach             0/-------/---====|======-\-------\0           Iincyo


Zach knows he can't get out of the way in time. No footing, and the kick is coming at him from an odd angle. So instead of trying and failing to get out of the way, Zach simply sweeps his arm upward.

The diagonally rising lance of Psycho Power takes care of the rest for him as the foot slams into his chest.

That was what she wasn't hoping for. As Zach sweeps an arm upward, the energy crashes into Chairperson, sending her tumbling out of the air. Oh. It's rather painful, but in the end .. she's tossed only a good distance away. She shakes herself off.. and focuses, bleeding now. Red droplets, warm, burn into the ice as she's not a fighter. It's unfortunate about it .. she's not one at all.

But she'll keep it up.

"Ngh.. that .. ow ..." She's not a happy camper at the moment.. but she has something that might make HER happy, at least. "ROCK BREAKER STANCE!"

The cry is easy to hear, and her motions come next, slamming a foot into the ice, enough to crack some of the smaller layers, before she thrusts both palms towards Zach, bursting forwards, before sending a kick, wide and sweeping, aiming to 'finish' what she starts.

Zach             0/-------/---====|======-\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach slides back to avoid the palm strike, before hopping the kick. He falters on the landing, forcing the judges to deduct a point, but he keeps his footing, at least.

Zach frowns a bit at the blood. He's surprised that the energy actually =cut=; never done that before. He calls up more energy, tapping that wellspring in his soul as purple fire ripples into view.

COMBATSYS: Zach gathers his will.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Zach             1/------=/=======|======-\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach slides back, Iincyo looks on .. oh .. so he .. can do that too. Especially as he begins to produce more energy.. but out of all things, IIncyo notices he's able to get out of the way. Hmphing, the girl does something, kicking the ice hard .. and then picking up a chunk of solid ice in her bare hands. It's flimsy, hard to control, and then some.

But she lunges towards Zach with it, swinging it towards him as she slides forwards.

"Hah ... ICE STANCE!" That's a new one. And what does she does? She WILDLY swings it towards Zach, spinning as she slides on the ice. Easy to see. Easy to block. Easy to everything!

Except, you know. Not a good idea to take.

COMBATSYS: Zach blocks Iincyo's Random Weapon.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach gets his arms up in front of the chunk of ice, grunting as the pain runs shocks up to his shoulders. He is breathing heavily at this point.

"...Right," Zach says as he sets into something resembling a boxing stance. "Last time I try =that.="

Zach then drives a quick punch into Iincyo's shoulder, psychic fire rippling up the length of the limb as it flies.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo blocks Zach's Jab Punch.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\-------\1           Iincyo

As Zach feels the pain, Iincyo lets go of the ice. She's through with that.. that and her hands .. kind of hurt. Cold, numb.. all of the above? Yeah. It's like that. But at this time, she watches as Zach falls back into a boxing stance. Iincyo looks on to Zach as he drives a quick punch, straight into her shoulder, psychic fire rippling against her.. She winces as he strikes, but she's able to prevent it.. and she shudders, breathing heavily... before .. doing relatively nothing. She stays mostly still.

She's trying to get back that will to fight.. thankfully, she's a fighter, if anything. "It .. might have not been the best option." She agrees. PERHAPS an odd agreement of everything, truth be told! But simply, Iincyo hangs back for the moment, aiming to keep it up.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo gains composure.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach snorts slightly before trying something out. He dives forward, stretching his fist out. More of that purple flame ripples out as Zach belly-slides across the makeshift rink.

When he approaches, he attempts to smack Iincyo in the thigh, aiming for a serious charlie horse!

COMBATSYS: Iincyo dodges Zach's Medium Punch.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach's punch comes forwards, Iincyo sees the purple flame, and that serious charlie horse.. will have to wait. She's freezing up. And she certainly doesn't like the feeling. She'd run at Zach, as well, but her breathing is hard.. honestly, she can't keep it up. She knows this ..

So she takes MORE time to prepare herself.

She's tactical, if nothing. "Hah... this .. is longer than .. I expected." Whether she means herself or Zach, it's to be seen. But she falls back into a stance, and her hair, and jacket, begin to whip.

A faint glow of chi can be seen around her, a blueish glow, as it manifests itself.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo gathers her will.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\===----\1           Iincyo

Zach whirls and spins into a sitting position, regarding Iincyo for a moment. He rests his elbows on his knees for a moment before getting back to his feet.

He's feeling the cold, and the abuse, and the effort that last "sprint" required of him. However, she is leaving herself somewhat open, he thinks.

Zach throws a fist forward, summoning another jagged rip of Psycho Power that travels horizontally at the Student Council leader!

COMBATSYS: Iincyo blocks Zach's Zero Stance.

[              \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Zach             1/---====/=======|=======\====---\1           Iincyo

Her energy focused, her mind at 'peace', her body under control.. Chairperson now has a refreshed view of it all. And with Zach there, she's able to see his motions. She has an unusually high ability to predict strikes, and prevent them.. but it's just enough to get her by through the day, with her lacking .. yet ... as Zach slams another jagged rip of Psycho power towards Iincyo, her arms come up, the fist and the energy ripping into the girl. It's painful.. but Chairperson pushes the strike back, some blood being drawn.. but there's a difference from the fight, from it all, that Chairperson .. suddenly has. She's smirking a bit.

"But .. it's time to end this, after all." She comments, smiling. A blue aura of energy, light blue, glows about her as she charges towards Zach. "And... I'll give it my all!" She cries, so close to Zach.. her strike is far, FAR faster than anything before, slamming towards his leg, aiming to cause him to stumble, and open him up.. "Because!..."

COMBATSYS: Zach dodges Iincyo's Lecture Attack.

Zach             1/---====/=======|-------\-------\0           Iincyo

"Because nothing," Zach says simply as he skids backwards on his heels.

Once more, that energy comes roiling forth, whipping about him, wrapping around him. "Give me more of that blue stuff," Zach orders.

COMBATSYS: Zach gathers his will.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Zach             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|-------\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach skids backwards, she's left flailing, and lands a bit on her face.. sighing. It wasn't as she had planned. And she falls back, shaking herself off, and does the same, locked in a battle of STARING. Apparently. It's cold.. and she just gave it her all .. what more can she give?

COMBATSYS: Iincyo gathers her will.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Zach             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach frowns a bit; he was hoping for just a bit more. No matter.

Zach seems to explode in a flurry of forward motion, using a burst of psychic energy to drive him towards his opponent. He hops slightly, ramming a purple-sheathed foot into Iincyo's midsection like a battering ram.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo dodges Zach's Strong Kick.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Zach             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=------\-------\0           Iincyo

As Zach frowns, seeming to explode towards her in a flurry of forwards motion strikes, psychic energy slamming towards her. It's, unfortunately for Zach, expected. And she notes that while it slams towards her, even as she sits about, it was enough for what she wanted to try ..

Suddenly she's rushing towards Zach, palm strikes towards him, one after the other. "WIND STANCE! Unrelenting assault!" she cries out .. she doesn't aim to give him any time to respond!

COMBATSYS: Zach interrupts Wind Stance from Iincyo with Burst Stream.

[                \\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////                        ]
Zach             1/------=/=======|=======\-------\0           Iincyo

Zach knew from the start that the kick would not connect; he gives Iincyo's speed that much credit, at least. However, like just about every fighter everywhere, Iincyo has difficulty attacking and defending at the same time. The wanderer brings his hands back by one hip, channeling all of that psychic fire in between his waiting palms.

Iincyo's first palm hits home, drawing a wince from Zach. The second one hits, bloodying his nose, but still he stands. It ends quickly, as Zach throws those charged hands forward, unleashing a massive blast as wide as he is tall and launching the girl across the arena.

As Zach's palm hits her, straight on, Iincyo being sent far into the air, launched up, before slamming HARD into the ground. She lays there for a moment. The cameras keep rolling. Her form is bloody. She's prone.

And then, despite the blood. Despite the immobile actions that Iincyo has shown .. a hand, feeling about, might be a notice, she's not done yet.

Pushing herself, Chairperson stands once more, blood warming her, matting about her shirt and long dark purple hair.

"It hurts." She claims, smirking slightly.. before taking a breathe in, readying herself once more.

She just doesn't give up. Ever.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo takes no action.

Zach             1/------=/=======|-------\-------\0           Iincyo

"So you don't," Zach observes as he tucks his left hand in close to his side. "Apparently did not hit you hard enough."

Zach drives forward, psychic plating forming around and over that left fist as Zach gets in close. "Maybe this will work," Zach states as he drives that armored hand into Iincyo's midsection.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo dodges Zach's Burst Strike.

As Zach observes this, tucking his hand in, Iincyo stands. Bloodied, it warms her. But in the end, Chairperson heaars these words. "You hit me plenty hard." She exclaims to Zach, smiling. And as he drives forwards, a plating around the left fist, Chairperson charges forwards, following Zach's action. When the strike comes, she leaps up, flipping over Zach, the psychic strike .. failing to strike home.

"Unfortunately it hasn't .. but ..." And then suddenly, Iincyo's eyes, and the aura around her returns. She struggles for a second, before it erupts, as she brings a fist back, slamming towards Zach's back, to start what might be .. a second course.

"I ...... am not yet ready .... to just fall over! Why I fight's more important .. than just proving myself .. So I have to work harder!"

COMBATSYS: Iincyo successfully hits Zach with Lecture Attack.
- Power hit! -

Zach             0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0           Iincyo

The strike is hard. Hard, because Iincyo is apparently burning bright, the chi flaring in the throes of 'defeat'. It's close. Really close.. but she's not ready to fall over. Just yet, at least.

"As Chairperson of Taiyo High!" She exclaims, belting his back with a palm strike, glowing blue, she slams him forwards. "I ... vow by this .. fight .. in the cold arctic...!" She rushes towards Zach, slamming a blue engulfed foot into his side, to send him staggering for a slight bit, before she goes in for the final strike.

"That I'll embrace what I'm doing ... embrace it and protect the Schools of Southtown with the others... even if.. If I have to resort to learning like this!" Which involves a spinning kick towards Zach, thrusting legs out, to send him flying, like he had done to her.

Before collapsing to the ground, breathing heavily, eyes, and fire, coalescing.

Is she done?.. The spirit might be gone.

Zach staggers under the assault, battered, bloodied, and bruised from the torrent of strikes combined with chi. The pain burns through him, and it is a good pain he thinks. He needs to acclimate, to get used to this if he is ever going to move forward.

But first he has Iincyo in his path.

He slowly gets to his feet, turning his head to the side and spitting out a mouthful of blood as he walks towards the girl. He pauses for a bit. She looks done. However, the fight is still going. Maybe, he reasons, he was beaten so handily by Hotaru not for any lack of ability...

...perhaps it is fear that still holds him back. He regards Iincyo for a moment.

Then he boots her in the head, more of that purple painfire sheathing the leg.

As Zach's foot comes towards her, Iincyo looks on. He walks towards her. And for the lack of a better tuerm.. she's burned out. Almost entirely. But this doesn't stop her from fighting on. This won't stop her burning spirit.. and most importantly.

It doesn't stop her from going on the OFFENSIVE. As he slams a boot towards her head, she rolls out of the way, and then leaps in with a fist, a normal punch, slamming towards his form.. he can't keep it up more as well, can he?

"HYAH!" She's .. really tired. ANd cold. A sleep would be .. good.

Zach             0/-------/=======|=------\-------\0           Iincyo

Apparently he cannot. The fist cracks across his jaw, forcing the older man to slump a bit.

However, like Iincyo, he is not quite done yet. He has one last ace up his sleeve, it seems as he thrusts his palm forward and spins a large globe of psycho power spins into existance before disapating. Maybe Zach will be lucky and Iincyo will get taken out by it...

COMBATSYS: Zach can no longer fight.

As Zach slumps forwards, thrusting his palm forwards, towards Iincyo, the Chairperson of Taiyo High rides her high. It's a battle high. She's bleeding. She's almost done. But she isn't. Not quite yet.. and then Zach sends it forth.

The globe of psycho power erupts outwards, and Iincyo's able to slide out of it, just enough.. how? That hole she made in the ice before.. she trips.

And is sent out of the way of the strike. Seeing starts, she notices Zach fall.. and then she stands, looking around. The 'high' wears off, and breathing heavily, she is the last one standing.. but she falls to her knees, afterwards.

"S-S... someone.. g-get me into the h-hot tent .. I.. I can't f-feel my a-arms and l-legs..." She's shivering, blood caked all over.... but apparently victorious? She can't even move her limbs, she's so tired. The camera's stop rolling, as well.

COMBATSYS: Iincyo has ended the fight here.
