World Warrior 2018 - World Warrior Round 2 L - Abigail vs Geese

[Toggle Names]

Description: A giant of industry and criminal enterprise battles...a man who is simply giant. Who will prevail!?

Geese Howard is always a man with high aspirations. With World Warrior, he sought to challenge the Lord of Strolheim himself. A rare few know of Geese's connection to Krauser, but even they know the extent of Geese's feelings for his half-brother. To say there is bad blood there is an understatement.

But Geese was soundly defeated in the first round of World Warrior. This has not stopped him. Instead, the leader of the Syndicate has pushed onward through the loser's bracket with the same grim determination that let him conquer the criminal underworld. Will Abigail be able to stop him?

Geese steps out onto the cobblestone arena. His sandals clop heavily across it. As usual, he is dressed in his white gi and red hakama, the faint gold etching of the dragon showing clearly on the latter. He paces, arms crossed, as he waits for his opponent.

Well then! The Losers Bracket..

It's not that Abigail hasn't found himself on the 'losing team' before. That would seem to be the story of Mad Gear after all. He's taken his lumps and lost his fights, though to look at him you'd think he'd need to have a fight with a T-Rex or similar equivalent for that to be the case..

Honestly a comparison probably not to far off given some of these World Warrior contestants..

But after making it into the finals by what amounted to sheer tenacity..he had hoped that maybe, just maybe he could press on a few rounds. Then he met Rugal.

Even so, like Geese, he's determined to leave his mark...and perhaps a few marks.. He's here, so best make the best of it!

The goliath is already in the yard when Geese arrives though his back, practically a billboard in size, is to the vicious crimelord. Geeses fighting presence can't be ignored, even by Abigail who has about as much sense for chi as a moss covered rock, and so the bruiser slowly turns to get a good look at the man.

" you're..uh..Geese it?" There's a pause and then he rumbles, "Huh..and people make fun of -my- name.." He dusts off his massive hands and then loosens up arms that make the local trees look like matchsticks. "Let's have a good fight, alright? Show me some horsepower!"

"Heh," Geese looks over Abigail. It takes his eyes a moment to trace the man's silhouette, but even then, the Syndicate leader does seem intimidated. IF anything, he seems to take the challenge in stride.

"So you're Abigail," Howard says, "one of those rare underdogs to actually make it to the World Warrior tournament." Geese tilts his head up slightly, even if the effect of turning his nose up is lost on Abigail. "Let's hope that size and power aren't all that you're bringing to the fight.

Geese raises one hand, palm upward. He curls his fingers in a beckoning gesture. "Come on," he says. "Let's see this 'horsepower' you're talking about!"

COMBATSYS: Geese has started a fight here. You cannot escape wrong death.

"That's me!" confirms the bruiser. "From bottom rank to a spot in the finals! Can't wait to get back to Metro City and use that in my next round of commercials for my scrap yard!"

He begins approaching Geese, literally rumbling the ground with his footsteps and a wild grin on his features as he draws closer and closer. "You want to see some horsepower?? Alright then!" He winds a massive arm up and thunders out, " I'll show you what I got!"

With that, Abigail lunges in, closing the distance on Geese with a mere two steps, looming over the other large man like some leaning sequoia.

A boulder of a hand comes hurtling in, blasting right for Geese's face .until at the last possible second it lurches to a stop with a sudden loud *BOOM* resounding through the area from the compressed air. A single finger then flicks out, thundering towards Geese with force usually associated with cannonballs hurtling from their cannons.

COMBATSYS: Abigail successfully hits Geese with Red Leaf.
- Power hit! -

Geese            0/-------/---====|=------\-------\0          Abigail

Geese's eyes narrow as he continues to watch the giant of a man. On the note of Abigail's climb from the bottom, Geese says nothing. His sandals slide across the stone as Abigail advances, but otherwise the crimelord does nothing. He is ready.

He only thinks he is ready. When the blow stops short and Abigail opts for the pressure bullet instead of the punch, it catches Geese by surprise and hits him with enough force to stagger him back. Geese takes two steps, his head turned away from the impact, but on the third step he stops. He spits blood onto the stone, lifts his head, and rolls his neck with a pop.

"Hmph. Impressive power." Geese says, thumbing away a dribble of blood from his lip. His mouth curls into an arrogant smirk. "I see why you drew Krauser's attention! Maybe "

And suddenly, power surges around Geese. The wind whips up around him as he gathers his chi. With a sudden swipe of his hand, Geese hurls a blue-white wave of chi that cuts along the ground toward Abigail.


COMBATSYS: Abigail blocks Geese's Reppuken.

Geese            0/-------/--=====|===----\-------\0          Abigail

"Huh." Abigail ponders this as he examines his finger, "That usually sends people further back then just two steps..."

But such is the case of World Warrior. Monsters, all of them. Even the J-Pop stars!

He barely has time to acknowledge Geese' response before the blast of chi is racing its way across the ground towards him, kicking off a shockwave of dust and ruin alongside its arcing path of destruction just before finally slamming into the goliath with an bright explosion of brilliant blue and a pluming cloud of dust and stone.

For his part, Abigail is briefly hidden from sight until the debris cloud is blasted away by a sudden shockwave from the giant. Abigail emerging in the aftermath of the attack by means of a thundering leap that leaves a depression on the ground from the force of his lift off. He hurtles skywards, actually flipping at the apex of his leap, and then slamming downward with both of his hands laced together into a single hammerblow the size of a boulder and sure to split the ground into a crater should he land atop Geese or not with the strike.

Geese            1/-----==/=======|======-\-------\0          Abigail

"Of course," Geese acknowledges. He works his jaw with his hand, popping it back into place uncomfortably. That was definitely some impact, even for Geese. The truth is that the man simply refuses to show weakness. If the man had to die, he would do so on his feet. Perhaps it's this sheer tenacity that kept him from tumbling across the courtyard when Abigail hit him.

And by the time the giant of a man is airborne, Geese seems to know he can't take another hit like that so soon. The mechanic has earned Geese's respect: he is now seen as a threat. Whether this is good or bad remains to be seen.

But the first result is shown when Abigail prepares for the crash landing. Geese drops into a low stance, his knees firmly braced. His hands snap out to intercept Abigail, both arms wrapping around the gargantuan man's leg. As they do, Geese pivots on his hit and shoulder, redirecting the flip into a momentum-based throw. His muscles go taut, pressing against his gi. Even his prime, Geese would have might have difficulty lifting the man outright, but this is where precision and technique come in. The judo-style throw redirects the massive mechanic away from blond and onto the ground.

"Metro City..." Geese says. "What brought you here?"

Abigail impacts like a collapsing mountainside, tumbling into the dirt full speed and blasting up more collateral damage as he rolls to the side and then pushes back up to a crouched position albiet partially buried in a wall of upended dirt shaped around his body.

He blinks a few times, hardly knowing where he is and thrown off, before he kippups back to a standing position, shaking the earth once again with the sudden force of his movements.

"KABOOM!" he roars, not inclined to give up just yet, despite the reality of that last move, and instead he lunges into a spinning rotation that sends a massive back fist at Geese.

His body continues its movements, lunging into the rotation and spinning around such that a steel girder of an arm is hurtling around at Geese with a follow up strike in the form of a thundering uppercut able to send men twice the crimelords size flying.

Geese            1/----===/=======|======-\-------\0          Abigail

Geese shifts his footing as Abigail's landing causes a small tremor. In another moment, the giant is back on his feet and bearing down on Geese once again. This time, the blond man is more prepared.

The spinning backfist is met with an aggressive block. Geese slams his shoulder and elbow into it, his muscles straining to slow Abigail's advance. The blow still sends Geese skiding across the ground, his sandals sliding even with Geese's superior stance.

And in the next moment, the uppercut comes. Geese goes for a crossblock on this one. He catches the fist against both arms, the blow rattling bones as it launches the crimelord up and back. He soars a brief distance through the air, his momentum lessened by his own power working against Abigail's. Still, he lands several feet away, uncrossing his arms and working the muscle of his forearm with his fingers.

"Momentous power...good. Tell me, you said you were a mechanic? Why do you waste your strength? Don't you have greater ambitions?" For a moment, Geese does not spring back into action with another counterattack. Perhaps Abigail's strength has caught his interest.

COMBATSYS: Geese focuses on his next action.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Geese            1/----===/=======|======-\-------\0          Abigail

It's a line of questioning that seems to be pretty persistent with Abigail and why not? The monster of a man is getting by purely on brute strength and intuitive fighting ability that is so immense he's able to compete with those who have dedicated to their lives to training and yet Abigail is just raw power and inventive force. The Superhuman Hot Rodder is a nickname for him but superhuman would be a understatement.

"Yeah, Metro City.." the behemoth rumbles as he steadies himself, recoiling a few steps after Geese' block and studying the man as he readies himself. Abigail slowly grins. He knew there was something familiar to him about Geese..and Rugal before him. He knows the presence of a chief. A boss man. A man of certain undertakings, likely on the look out for those of a certain similar quality, when he meets one, even if he's less familiar with the Southtown going ons.

"I used to work for a guy named Belger. Chief enforcer.." He rumbles. A name Geese would most likely know if keeping up with the underworld happenings in Metro City, "But when he got taken down our group got disbanded and I started my own business."

But this is no time for a history lesson. He widens his stance and suddenly his skin reddens, steam begins pumping out of his nostrils and ears and his entire body, especially upper torso, begins bulking up even larger! Large percentages of muscle mass piles ontop of him as he lets out a loud "VRroooooom! What can I say! I love moddin' cars!"

His body surges bigger and bigger, the ground cracking from the sudden added weight and the temperature around the brute rocketing up as his body pushes it over the line with Max Power.


[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Geese            1/----===/=======|=======\==-----\1          Abigail

"Mad Gear?" Geese says, his brow raising slightly. "Belger's chief enforcer? Perhaps the man wasn't a complete fool...heh." Power starts to surge around Geese. The wind picks up as he focuses his chi, causing the air to get heavy, almost smothering. It feels almost as if a summer storm were about to suddenly roll in.

"It may be your passion, but you're wasting your potential. Metro City could be yours, but you'd rather work on cars." Geese crinkles his nose, as if disgusted by the waste of strength.

"Show me your true power! Perhaps then I can offer you something greater than Belger ever could!"

The wind suddenly hits its peak as Geese raises his hands over his head. Blue-white chi pools in his hands, forming into a large sphere.


And then he thrusts it downward, smashing it into the ground with earth-shaking force. The chi explodes into great, cutting spikes of wind shear, each blade ripping through the earth like a arc welder through cheap steel.


COMBATSYS: Geese issues a challenge!!

Geese            0/-------/-======|=======\==-----\1          Abigail

The change in the weather isn't lost on Abigail but he focuses in on Geese's words, locking his attention on them and frowning slightly. Geese is correct but at the same time there is a simplicity and sense of assuredness in knowing what you like and being content in that. This may war with Abigial's sense of ambition but the thought that his beloved trucks and cars are some how 'beneath' other aspirations draws...well..irrational ire from him.

"You just don't' understand the power of a roaring engine!" he slams his huge fists together even as the storm intensifies, "It beats inside of my very soul!! I'll show you! Ergh-"

That last bit emerges as Geese sends the roaring storm of chi swirling out and shockwaving towards Abigail, illuminating the titan in its glow.

And then sudden inspiration hits. Abigails hulking superhuman body tightens up even more, muscle fibers flexing such that one might think he could crush a bank vault. He spreads his huge arms wide, rooted to the ground, and the Raging Storm erupts into him, an immovable object, that stand firm as the landscape is ripped to shreds around him.

"Yeah!" roars the juggernaut, "I'm at the redline!!"

With that he lunges forward, pushing through the rest of the assault to suddenly explode into view right infront of Geese. The crimelord finding Abigail's torso rushing towards him like a the wall of a building, attempting to literally smash into the man with a body slam that would shatter cliffsides.

COMBATSYS: Geese blocks Abigail's Hungabee.

Geese            1/------=/=======|=======\=------\1          Abigail

Abigail's moment of brilliance catches Geese by surprise. One moment, the giant of a man risks being shredded by the power of the Raging Storm. The next, he has powered through it by using the very earth around him as a makeshift shield. Abigail keeps trucking onward, smashing into Geese and driving him backward even though Geese's guard raises in an instant to intercept the blow. Once again, the crimelord is sent skidding across the stage by Abigail's immense power.

He comes to a stop by planting his hands into the dirt, his fingers going taut as he digs into the soil, leaving trails in it until he comes to a stop. When he does, he rises back up.

"A one track mind, then. What a shame." Blood drips from Geese's fingers as he advances toward Abigail slowly, undeterred. "Men with power should seize greatness," he says. "Those who have strength must reach for the summit. That is the way of the world!"

Geese lunges toward Abigail. His hands snap out, reaching to try and grab hold of the man's massive arm. If he gets hold, he twists, applying pressure to the joint, then pivots to try and flip Abigail around into a pivoting shoulder throw!

COMBATSYS: Abigail barely endures Geese's Power Throw.

Geese            1/----===/=======|=======\=====--\1          Abigail

There's something inconceivable about all of this. Aside from the chi, Geese' moves are very straight forward. Rooted. Deliberate. Turning the giants own strength and size against him. There's no hurtling of lightning or dropping of awesome powers of the dark. It's just straight forward technique and it hurts. Oh does it hurt.

But it's enough to drive the man onward. He rolls again, lunging up out of the deep rooted crater caused by his repeated slams.
%"No escape!" he bellows before lunging at Geese with a massive hand that drive downward, intending on smashing it full force into th other man in order to throw him off balance.

The earth shakes wildly ad his palm smashes into it, chasming the immediate area around the two titans.

Geese            1/-======/=======|====---\-------\0          Abigail

The crater deepens with each slam. At this point, Geese has had to learn to adjust his footing to avoid flooring himself with the aftershock of the giant's impacts. As if Abigail's intended blows weren't enough, even the collateral damage would be devastating for the average man.

And when Abigail rises up with another slam, Geese has to go on the defensive. Suddenly the mechanic is bearing down on him once more, a palm the size of a tire bearing down on him. Geese waits, his feet shifting just spreading just slightly.

Geese's counter attack has to be perfectly timed and with tremendous force. The palm crashes down like a hydraulic press, and Geese throws himself to the side slightly. The palm sweeps pass him in a near miss, and Geese reaches out to take his tree-trunk of an arm again. Muscles tighten. Chi surges. Geese puts tremendous effort into executing a move that would be effortless against a smaller man.

But he swings the giant completely over his head, bones creaking as he does. There's a moment where the world seems to go still as the enormous judo throw is executed. What happens next is enough to shake the entire castle.

Okay now -that- wasn't supposed to happen. Overconfidence on Abigail's part? Or is it just 'Geese Howard'. Or a combo of the two. Either way, the entire turning of the momentum of -that- particular assault on its head is enough to register earthquakes back in Strolheim itself. The town.

The castle itself wobbles and shakes as the shockwave of Abigail's meteoric impact races its way through the grounds, uprooting trees, and collapsing walls, and then up the foundations of the castle itself.

For his part, Abigail simply gasps, letting out a wide eyed and hoarse in both shock and pain. He can hardly expound on the virtue of the roaring fury of a finely modded car or monster truck when in -this- condition.

But as rough as things are, he's not ready to give it up just yet. His eyes blink back open and he slams his huge palms to the ground and pushes himself up, and then off of it to lunge back at Geese in a monstrous drop kick while roaring out loudly, "Just stay in your lane!!"

COMBATSYS: Geese blocks Abigail's Ontario Drop.

Geese            2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0          Abigail

Geese has to step to maintain his balance in the wake of the tremor. He smiles--perhaps not as attaining the upperhand so much as ruining some of Krauser's landscaping. Perhaps this is the pettiness of their feud. It remains vague. He crosses his arms and exhales through his nose with a sudden 'hmph'.

But then Abigail continues to fight against all odds. The massive man launches into steel-shattering dropkick, and Geese brings up both arms in a cross-guard once again. The dropkick impacts with him heavily, driving the man back into a stagger. Even Geese is starting to show the wear and tear of the continued fight, because perfect technique does not make him completely immune to Abigail's absurd strength. He jerks forward suddenly, stopping with a small mound of dirt behind him and a small trench in front. Geese's knees bend and he starts to go forward, but he stops himself, standing upright amidst heavy breathing.

"And still you keep going. You don't even understand your own potential!" Geese says, tossing a hand back behind him. Chi starts to swirl and gather in it, a large ball of blue-white forming in his palm.


He sweeps his hand forward, hurling the sphere. It cuts through the ground in a great wave, wide as a normal man, which slices through the courtyard toward Abigail.


COMBATSYS: Geese successfully hits Abigail with Raigou Reppuken.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >                                ]
Geese            1/-------/<<<<<<<|=======\-------\1          Abigail

That does it then. The wave erupts into Abigail like a super nova, blistering, burning and slicking through the man before final exploding in a flash of blue flames that fire blossoms upwards and fills the training grounds with its light.

For an instant there is silence. IS the behemoth finally down!

"I'm high octane!!!" roars Abigail's voice suddenly as he explodes through the tsunami of chi and brings a massive fist around in a thunderous strike that sends an explosive boom through the area before it even impacts

Like a machine gun, his other fist comes around, and then back again and then again and then more and more and more into a blurring cascade of rapid fire assaults that would lift Geese up off the ground and into the air if they land. The final hit a double fisted slam that would send Geese soaring into the air as he roars, "Abigail PUNCH!!"

And yet, even with all of that effort, it's not enough. Abigail goes toppling forward, slamming down to his knees and then keeling down towards the ground like a sequoia that has finally been brought down.

COMBATSYS: Abigail can no longer fight.

Geese            1/------</<<<<<<<|

Geese paces forward toward Abigail as the dust starts to settle. The Raigou Reppuken has torn through the air and exploded into a massive flash of chi. For a moment, it seems like the battle is decisively won.

And then Geese's eyes widen as the behemoth surges to life once more like a horror movie monster, descending on the blond man with a furious set of blows. Geese drops into a turtling defensive stance. Each blow knocks him back at least a foot, but blow upon blow rains upon him. Abigail pursues him with every hit. The man is practically a steam engine rolling down a track.

Finally, the double-fisted slam sends Geese flying backward like a battering ram. He crashes into the wall of the fortress in a cloud of dust and dirt rises in his wake. Abigail topples with a booming thud, knocking a few more rocks from the wall.

But a few moments later, Geese slowly rises from the wall. He is battered, bruised, and bloodied--but he is still standing. He walks steadily toward Abigail, looking down on him briefly.

Geese tosses a contact card to him.

"Perhaps when you wake up you'll reconsider the opportunity. Men of your strength do well under me."
