Neo League 951 - #966: Ken vs Chun-Li

Description: Ken and Chun-Li in beautiful China! (Draw)

Jiuzhaigou. A truly marvelous place that exemplifies the beauty of China. Of course, while it is generally difficult to convince a gonvernment to allow a whole group of people to go trouncing through one of their heavily preserved and protected lands, the Neo-League somehow manages to make the impossible, possible.

The crews have set everything up, and decided to bring in a new face to this season, and bring back one of their more questionable ones, even if the questionable one just so happens to own and run this entire operation.

There is a hushed whisper amongst the crew as they discuss the possible outcomes of the mayhem that is to come. Will this end up being a bloodbath? Will it prove to be the final nail in the coffin for their chairman's public appearance? What exactly will happen? Why is the narrartor going on and on like this? No one can tell, and only the flow of time will reveal the truth as to just what is about to unfold here.

Xiang Chun-li combs the fringe of hair not currently bound into her ox tails aside to better appreciate the view. The 'Strongest woman in the world' stands at the shoreline looking out over the lake, one raised hand gently touching her brow as the wind stirring the white ribbons behind her making them dance.

Returning to the present she smiles and waives away attempts to offer her somewhere comfortable to wait or a sports drink, coffee, tea or soda. Polite and ever smiling she declines the offers.

Feeling slightly anxious about the fight Chun-li prefers the solitude and calm while the opportunity presents itself. Reports of how fearsome her opponent has become in recent fights, anxiety and a faint tremble at the centre of her being.

The cameras have already started rolling as the announces begin their usual pre-fight performance, getting the audience at home worked up into a frenzy, expecting anything and everything to come their way. Of course, a soft fog slowly starts to roll out across the water, as if one of the technicians got smart and hooked up a fog machine or twelve across around them. The fog slowly starts to work its way across the shoreline, giving it an almost ominous feeling of dread as the almost fully set sun casts off the last of its light for the rest of the day.

The announcers suddenly go silent as they start glancing around, trying to locate any visual sight of the other participant of this match, yet failing miserably.

Then it begins. The ground itself starts to rumble, threatening to split itself apart and swallow everyone, giving them an early end to their lives. However, the fog starts to rise higher into the sky, wrapping itself around a lone figure clad in red.

Death rides upon a pale horse, that's what has been said, yet... The messenger before Chun-Li, the messenger of Orochi seems not to ride upon a steed, yet, there is a belief amongst those who have tainted him, that he will be the man who rides upon that horse.

Normally it would be a joyous occasion for Ken, being reunited with an old friend, yet, this is different for him. He is truly not himself, and as he approches the woman from China, the chi slowly starts to swirl around his hands, tainted and engulfed with hatred and evil- He has come to destroy once again.

COMBATSYS: Ken has started a fight here.

COMBATSYS: Ken has awoken to his Rage. Watch the hair.

The fog gently rolling in is enough to make the Chinese woman initially smile, a theatrical move as one could expect from Ken Masters yet she cannot shake that feeling of unease. Silhouetted against the fading light Chun-li turns away from watching the sunset as the ground begins to tremble.

Feet braced apart she endures the upheaval while her head swivels back and forth looking for the figures of people whom had been so lively and busy up until now. Her heart almost stops in her chest as she looks up at the figure in red, familiar blonde hair is all she can allow herself to recognise as a fist at her side tightens and creaks ominously.

Exploding into a run toward him, she cries out “Give us room” as she races past the crew. The very feel of the air seeming to nauseate her she can only think “Ken, Wake up!” grabbing at the front of his Gi attempting to hurl him into the shallow water.

COMBATSYS: Chun-Li has joined the fight here on the right meter side.

Ken [E]          0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0          Chun-Li

As the agent of Interpol rushes towards Ken, the chi that has been gathering upon his fist suddenly springs to life, enveloping the fist with a twisted red glow. The words that are directed towards him go unheard, as a loud gutteral roar suddenly springs outwards from deep inside the man. Rushing towards Chun-Li, looking to meet her head on, the US Champion suddenly ducks down, twisting his body and springing upwards like a rocket towards his opponent, looking to unleash his most famed attack.


Yet, he just isn't quick enough to catch her with his fist before she locks ahold of his gi, easily tossing him into the cold and tranquil waters. Of course, this just doesn't seem to be enough to phase the man out of the Orochi-based berserker rage, roaring loudly once more.

As Ken rages, still on the shore dry and looking obviously disappointed Chun-li scratches lightly at her cheek and softly murmurs "That doesn't seem to have worked." throwing herself towards the shore at a blistering speed she slows greatly when she hits the waters edge but ploughs through the distance between the shore and Ken Masters.

Face to face with him she doesn't even hesitate to kick at his heel and try to shove him straight back down, maybe he'll come back to his sense with a good enough shock.

COMBATSYS: Ken dodges Chun-Li's Combo Grapple.

[    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////////]
Ken [E]          0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0          Chun-Li

As Chun-Li once more moves towards Ken, trying to ensare him in another attack, the crimson clad man suddenly takes a step forward, and in what seems to happen in the blink of an eye, he is on the other side of Chun-Li, readying himself to start dishing out his own destruction.

As Chun-Li would start to realize, Ken's body rapidly arcs in a cartwheel-like motion, his right foot suddenly bring itself towards the woman's collarbone. It seems that Ken's moving to truly deal some heavy damage to what he does consider a friend, but the bigger question is does he even realize what he's doing, or is he truly that far gone?

COMBATSYS: Ken successfully hits Chun-Li with Ryusen Kyaku.

Ken [E]          0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1          Chun-Li

Blinking as droplets of water strike Chun-li fails to follow the now airborne Ken Masters, Raising an arm to block the kick instead crashes down upon her collarbone with enough force to make her cry out and drive her to one of her knees. Rolling away and heedless of the drenching the water gives her tries to put a little distance between them. "Its Chun-li, don't you recognise me?" the woman stands once again still compassionately pleading for him "This isn't a Match Ken"

As a fighter and a friend alike she has to stop him. The splashing of the two fighters intensifies as she dashes in, but instead of closing the gap entirely she stops, one leg raised and leaning back slightly there is a split second of peace before the torrent of kicks lashes out "Hyakuretsu Kyaku!"

COMBATSYS: Chun-Li successfully hits Ken with Hyakuretsu Kyaku EX.
- Power hit! -

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////        ]
Ken [E]          0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1          Chun-Li

Ken finds himself facing the flurry of kicks head on, his body moving a bit to slow, screaming in agony and protests as he finds himself failing to defend himself against them, only to be thrust away by the force of the kicks. His eyes narrow on Chun-Li, the words still failing to pull out any semibalance of what would be considered 'Normal Ken.'

Instead, Chun-Li is faced with Ken once more rushing towards her, his right foot suddenly spring outwards, skidding slightly across the ground as he strikes back at the woman, intending to make her either retreat, or be destroyed.

COMBATSYS: Chun-Li fails to interrupt Aggressive Strike from Ken with Houyoku Sen.
- Power fail! -

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Ken [E]          1/-------/=======|=======\====---\1          Chun-Li

Mid swing of Kens foot Chun-li alters her posture the barrage of feet becoming more focused as she steps in to prosecute, her boot reaching for his head even as his own finds her torso and sends her rocketing backwards.

Coughing painfully she chooses that moment to drop to her knees and even once it subsides she is breathing heavily and for once completely silent.

Instead of speaking she continues watching his movements warily.

There is no rest for Ken, as his hands suddenly spring to life with chi once more, the energy rapidly starting to gather between them as he pulls them to his side. It seems that he's going to continue his onslaught, and what better way to do it then with something that he's also well known for.


COMBATSYS: Chun-Li dodges Ken's Hadouken.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Ken [E]          0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0          Chun-Li

Chun-lis eyes widen incredulously, mind reeling as she confirmation Ken Masters does seem to be truly trying to kill her. The water around her follows her into the air and that spray is then by the chi attack. High above she sails through the air towards him but instead of landing with a heavy attack she stomps down at his head aiming to vault off and over.

COMBATSYS: Ken blocks Chun-Li's Medium Kick.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Ken [E]          0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0          Chun-Li

As Chun-Li moves to plant the foot in his head, Ken's already got his arms raised, absorbing the impact, seemingly still showing no signs whatsoever of coming to a stop. However, he does motion towards Chun-Li, beckoning the woman to continue on as his breathing slowly starts to become more rythmatic, instead of strained like one would expect in a fight.

COMBATSYS: Ken enters a meditative state.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Ken [E]          1/-----==/=======|===----\-------\0          Chun-Li

Sailing overhead Chun-li turns a slow graceful somersault and lands with a modest splash, arms and body in constant movement she accepts and attacks even as ken makes the beckoning gesture. Still calm and processing despite the injury and shock of the fight Chun-li burns with the desire to win, to find out what happened and why this fight is even happening.

Arms dragging behind her and feet splashing in shallow water as she charges she suddenly vaults forward onto her hard and those formidable legs come up, her entire body spins like a powerful rotor strong enough to stirr the surface of the water.

COMBATSYS: Ken blocks Chun-Li's Spinning Bird Kick.

[              \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Ken [E]          1/-----==/=======|===----\-------\0          Chun-Li

Once more Ken brings his arms upwards, easily blocking the brunt of Chun-Li's assault, skidding backwards as he tries to stay on his feet. His body is now starting to rebel slightly against this additional stress that has been put on it, however whatever is driving him is overriding those very warnings his body is giving.

Ken's body suddenly arcs once more in a cartwheel like fashion, as he starts to slam his foot over and over at Chun-Li, striking at her like a wheel rolling down the street with chi flying freely from him like fire. Finally he twists his body to slam that very foot up towards her chin, moving to bring her up towards the heavens in a flaming torrent of destruction.

COMBATSYS: Chun-Li dodges Ken's Guren Senpuukyaku.

[                    \\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Ken [E]          1/---====/=======|===----\-------\0          Chun-Li

Back on her feet and arms gently moving with the chilling wind the Taijiquan master steps away out or range of the rising kick, gently swaying her body back and away from the devestating technique. The momentary split second the danger has past she steps in tries to hook her leg behind his knee and throw him straight down into the shallow water at her feet.

COMBATSYS: Ken interrupts Combo Grapple from Chun-Li with Guren Senpuukyaku.

[                    \\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////                        ]
Ken [E]          0/-------/-------|=======\-------\1          Chun-Li

As Chun-Li moves to grab Ken, she'll feel her hands grasping ahold of his gi, only to lose the grip as he once more slams his foot towards the girl, this time connecting and unleashing a torrent of pain that seems to get worse as it continues on. When it seems to finally end, Chun-Li is being drug towards the heavens, as the flames that surround the two start to get hotter and more intense.

It seems that Ken is truly a tool of destruction in the hands of Orochi.

Screaming amidst the torrent of fire Chun-li feels like she is being flayed alive yet still within the quiet recesses of her mind she wonders how there can be air enough left in her body to scream after that kick. The flames die and Chun-li begins so topple forwards, Knees turned inwards and legs bowing she digs down deep for anything left "not.. like.. th" And contrary to everything her body is telling her she surges forward, a candle guttering in the wind about to go out and her legs stab at Ken. Furiously striking at legs, body and head she actually advances a step and alternates with the other leg, spiking upwards with a kick aimed to send him skywards she still isn't done!

COMBATSYS: Chun-Li successfully hits Ken with Housenka.

[                             \  < >  ////                          ]
Ken [E]          0/-------/--=====|==-----\-------\0          Chun-Li

A crumpled and broken body seemingly is what Chun-Li is left with after her devistating attack upon Ken, his body twitching slightly as whatever is driving him slowly starts to realize that maybe this is a truly bad idea to continue. Then again, it wouldn't be pure carnage, which is what he's supposed to be doing, so slowly he starts to climb up to his feet, clouded eyes trained upon Chun-Li, ready to continue what he's started.

Mustering the energy left, he suddenly thrusts his right fist towards Chun-Li, seemingly attempting to continue the destruction of his good friend.

COMBATSYS: Ken can no longer fight.

[                          \\\\  <
Chun-Li          0/-------/-----==|

COMBATSYS: Ken successfully hits Chun-Li with Jab Punch.

[                            \\  <
Chun-Li          0/-------/----===|

Hardly holding herself upright Chun-li watches in mute horror as her opponent gets back to his feet once again. What kind of inhuman monster has he become? Will he just keep coming like this at until she can fight no longer? She swallows her fear and attempts to raise her fists though only in a warding gesture and she tries to step away in time. Instead the his fist painfully strikes her cheek and pitches her away into the deeper water where she lies just trying to keep her head above water.

Looking back towards Ken, no longer the madman tried to kill her, hopefully. She strains, reaching out for the collar of his Gi and dragging both out of the water on her hands and knees. Safe on the shore she collapses and rolls onto her back, distanlty listening to the Neoleague fight staff "..Draw? Sure, but I count that as a win." Muted buzzes and some figure her eyes cant quite focus on asks her something "Because I'm still alive." The 'worlds strongest woman' even manages a smile and a quick V-sign with her fingers.
