SNF 2018.04 - SNF: Lilith vs. Benezet

[Toggle Names]

Description: Benezet and Lilith meet for a funeral dance at a graveyard, the souls of the early dead at stake. Will they join the invisible spirits, or will they become a diablolique among the loins of the unrested? (Winner: Lilith)

The souls of the wrongfully damned call Benezet Desire to this graveyard, where life ebbs through the night and surges strong through the eyes of the birds of the forest and the little creatures of the wood. He creeps out of the old pathways into the warm smell of earth, his purple loafers sweeping across the wet grass. He holds a knife in his right hand, a bottle of rum in the left, moving to the graves of those children so turned apart by life that they can never properly rest.

There are souls here, children who never could live, that need the arms of widows and widowers and the childless and luckless. These children can give those men and women power to have children of their own, and enamor them to be powerful men, their children future heads of state, speaking through the dreams of the wise unwary.

To be a champion of the poor, one must have failed, but one must have also the power to do right.

And by obeying the leylines' call, this bokor can make right the things wrong.

"Usually it's a street car named Desire, not some dude, what's with people these days!?"

there is a click of red stiletto heels as Lilith alights on one of the tombstones nearby, standing on the top of it, in her normal flamboyant red leotard and purplish-blue bat-patterned tights, gloves and those shin-length red boots. She had her hands on her hips with her tiny red wings fluttering behind her as she perched on the gravestone.

"Now lets get this underway--you're making me late for my usual rounds of luring sex offenders to their doom," Lilith managed this line with an entirely serious and straight-faced expression.

As it was--Benezet had something of a pre-emptive strike, considering how she announced herself.

A cryptic smile creeps along Benezet's skinny, angular lips.

"How do you know you're late?"

The uncannily shaped gaunt voodoo sorcerer sidles along between graves, lifting the rum to his lips and taking a slow sip. He sets the bottle of rum down delicately and twists his knife about into a down-pointed position, before sliding it into his valentine purple mortician's jacket.

Eyelids fluttering, fuschia psionic energy swirls around his face, his eyes opening, pure black, the waves sliding down his body until he has an eerie silhouette that dims the view of his body. He lifts a spider-long finger, just one, a little mote of fireflies swirling around it, before he casts it down at Lilith.

A narrow line of life-draining deadlight flickers through the air with a snap at Lilith, seeking to open up the paths of her fates to Benezet's glimpsing third eye. Beyond it, is what Benezet seeks, the view of her connection with this temporal plane.

COMBATSYS: Benezet successfully hits Lilith with Touch of Death.

Benezet          0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0           Lilith

As the violence begins, Benezet shows Lilith his deadlights--and she is shocked by the... psycho power? She is not sure what exactly that was. At least to her--it seemed like a blinding psionic attack--and it left her vision blurry.

"Ow--OWW--SONNAVABITCH--Jeezus! Agh--okay," Lilith regains her composure somewhat, though she is still reeling from that attack, woozy, even.

"Come here, damnit!" Lilith springs right toward the defender, trying to grab him and swing her red wings inward toward him--which suddenly turn into scythe blades!

COMBATSYS: Lilith successfully hits Benezet with Innocent Hug.

Benezet          0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet falls backwards beneath Lilith as her sharp wings wrap around him and she clings to him, hissing close-in with his rum-strenched breath that smells of a warm hearthfire, his nostrils flaring as if he's a bull.

"These souls are not yours, stray spirit of the worlds," he whispers, before he lashes out with his fist into Lilith's gut at close quarters, a quick piston snap, before his left hand pins against her shoulder and he delivers a second, deeper blow. "These children are born to be your foes!"

COMBATSYS: Lilith dodges Benezet's Medium Punch.

[  \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////////      ]
Benezet          0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0           Lilith

Lilith manages her grapple check to take hold of the bokor, her girlish arms restraining the man just long enough for her hips to fasten against his and her wings arc down and slash into him--just in tune for her right leg to rise backwards girlishly and her back to arch. There is a KRIK sort of noise, though that might be from the cartilage protesting from the stab wounds he was now sporting. Ahh, that looked like it felt good--for Lilith, anyway. Benezet falls back, apparently the hug was a little too much for him.

"Are we going flaccid already, dear?" she worked her shoulder joint, popping it lightly, her eyes going wide as the bokor approaches quickly to punch her--her form seeming to flicker as she blinks out of the way.

"Actually, I don't even want them--if I was a lower soul-sucker I might be interested in going all sluagh on them--but nah, TWO can play at this death-obsessed asshole schtick, shadow man!" standing atop another gravestone, Lilith concentrates...

COMBATSYS: Lilith focuses on her next action.

[  \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////////      ]
Benezet          0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet pushes to his feet, blood slicking off the sides of his purple suit. "When dealing with creatures of the night, dearest, I don't pray when I'm under their spell," he says with a quiet smile, head drooping forwards on his tall, stiff frame as he pulls himself back a pace.

Benezet's hands reach to his wet sleeves and rub the blood into his palms and fingers, fuschia Psycho Power forcing the wounds to close, before he spreads the blood across his face.

He exhales a low, dry rasp, that chatters from his jaw and clicking teeth, as he builds his energy at the expense of his deep depths of will. He draws from Guinee, phantasms of convicts and the homeless and the tortured servile flashing about him, faces curling about his body as he taps the wells of his charges in the lands beyond.

COMBATSYS: Benezet enters a meditative state.

Benezet          0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0           Lilith

"So... you are already?" Lilith reaches up and scratches the side of her head and her hair a bit, the lilac pixie-cut tousled just a bit. Benezet confused her already.

"You're sending me mixed signals, old man--aw the hell with it, I'm bored already--EAT IT," the gravel between her boots and the gravestone she was perched on crunched as she swiftly leapt off the top--her wings swinging out and becoming bladed again as she spun toward him like a deadly... spinning object. A top! Or a dreidel, if you wish to be multicultural!

"Yahahaha~ get sliced old man!" she gleefully pealed.

COMBATSYS: Lilith successfully hits Benezet with Merry Turn EX.

Benezet          1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet's arms snap open as Lilith comes flying at him, and he leaps at her while she spins with such speed and vigor that he merges into a shower of flesh and blood and gristle as the two collide mid-air.

There's a howl from wolves in the woods as he screams in pain, but then, his arms snap down as he attempts to ride Lilith to the ground atop her in his grasp.

As he attempts to grasp the succubus, grasping her arms, he snaps his head forward, a kiss for her lips and a hard suck of life out of Lilith from his mouth, pulling her essence from her via her lips and into him, with a firm show of black love and a teetering claw onto the grass.

COMBATSYS: Benezet successfully hits Lilith with Skull Kiss.
Grazing Hit

Benezet          1/-------/=======|=======\-------\0           Lilith

"How do you like that, shadow man?! Are we feeling a 'shadow of our former selves' already? D'ohoho~" Lilith's cackling is a little short-lived, as Benezet is able to take hold of her as she spins--her eyes are wide as he's actually... kissing him? Okay, she was flirting and teasing and intimidating him the entire match, but damn--this is one hell of a strange graveyard makeout session.

"Mmmphh! Mmm!" Lilith's caught by the bokor, and already her eyes are half-lidded as his lips press against hers and her energy is sucked out. It would seem this encounter has proved to be a bit... draining! Yeeeaaahh--okay that wasn't that great, but still.

Her lashes flick and she begins to come to, with the Haitian man still locked in a kiss with her--draining her life away--so she decides to burn some soul-mojo and attempts to use the proximity to her advantage.

"Bwuh--" she breaks the seal he had against her lips and her body is wreathed in prismatic energy, attempting to push Benezet into a nearby statue arrangement and give him a flurry of blows--creating double images of herself on either side of him!

COMBATSYS: Lilith successfully hits Benezet with Luminous Illusion.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////        ]
Benezet          1/----===/=======|====---\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet is blasted off his feet and into the statuaries, his bloodied body snapping rictus as he's jammed against the hard stone. Lilith's punches and kicks from both directions batter him, his fuschia energy retreating inward as the strange looking Haitian is pummelled.

Benezet falls forward and surges past Lilith's clones, staggering between and away, with a final blow knocking him to his hands and knees. A low, rasping chuckle comes from him, as Lilith is behind him.

He pushes to his feet and swings about with his arm slack and his bones jaunted.

"Do you wish to see your shadow as well, Lilith Aensland?" he says, having felt her connection with her past from the kiss.

He jumps forward like a man possessed, sailing through the air as he attempts to lock his hands onto her. His eyes blaze black fury as his body surges to enwrap them both in swirling energy, a low moan coming from the ground beneath them.

When in his grasp, Lilith can feel a connection to Guinee, seeing all those movements she's made in the tapestry of life, and her secret nuances coming into Benezet, as he categorizes and analyzes the data of her secret rituals that make her who she is, and give her the power to fight.

A succubus from Majigen is quite the find.

"Don't worry--I'm totally not racist--I actually like Haitian food!" Lilith and her soul doppleganger get through with beating on Benezet as the latter disappears, Lilith flicking some blood casually off one of her wing blades. Damn, this guy had renegeration like woah--and he didn't seem to be showing any signs of stopping.

"Jeez, it sounds like the men six-feet under are getting blue orbs as well--lets give this a good climax--" one of her wings reforms itself into a bladed wing-esque shape as she attempts to jump and slice through Benezet with it--as she enters the swirling energy!

Benezet          0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1           Lilith

Benezet shrieks in rage and fright as his guts are strewn across Lilith's face and wings, torn open and launched backwards into a mausoleum. He slams into it, before bouncing off and landing in a sitting position, head wobbling. Marble chips fall about his shoulders as he spits up blood, the commitment to the soul tether having been broken, leaving him a confused mess.

Benezet shakily gets to his feet, an unsteady drag of his shoulders into a standing position. He tugs at his bloody jacket, as if he's about to go to court, his entrails hanging out over his belt. Despite the seemingly lethal damage, he's still going.

"You need to learn some manners!" he remarks as he edges forward at her, before he leaps into the air and unleashing a spinning jump kick, his leg bursting into a flash of purple light that leaves trails behind it.

COMBATSYS: Lilith dodges Benezet's Skeleton Spin.

Benezet          0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1           Lilith

"Phew, that aura of yours really takes it out of a girl," Lilith remarks as she descends from the rising wing-uppercut she just pulled off on Bene, flicking her wing to clean off some of the blood. The wing itself was already fast turning back from a sharp, metallic-esque substance back into leathern skin, morphing in shape and texture as it went.

"Please, you're just angry you ain't got me under your spell yet, shadow man~" Lilith teases blinking away from his spinning jump kick--reappearing on the other side of him and bringing one of her slender legs and petite booted feet up to give him a bit of a jab with it!

COMBATSYS: Benezet fails to interrupt Light Kick from Lilith with Bleed Ride.

[                \\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Benezet          0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1           Lilith

Benezet draws his knife, swinging around with a stab, but takes the boot to his jaw and is knocked off his feet.

His knife falls to the ground beside him, as he lays on his back, covered in black-red blood.

Lilith takes her boot to Benezet's jaw and then punches it down below the belt. Ooohh, that had to hurt!

"I hope Haiti has some fertility death gods hiding down there, because I think you're in need of some divine intervention, hon~" She then forms her wings into large red cartoony hands--attempting to grab Benezet and throw him against another set of gravestones--much like a bowling ball!

COMBATSYS: Benezet blocks Lilith's Quick Throw.

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Benezet          0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1           Lilith

Benezet is lifted up and above and around, before hurtling through the air into a statue. It breaks and he falls to the ground, the shattered stone around him as he lays there, daze.

Benezet pushes himself to his feet and wipes the blood from his mouth, jumping atop the dais where the statue used to be with a push and hop upwards.

"Girl, you don't know where I've been, but I know where you shall return. Not today, and not the next, but you shall lose the eye that is your Self."

Benezet throws himself forward and hits the ground on his hands, flipping off it and flying at Lilith with the back of his leg coming down on her, heel first.

COMBATSYS: Lilith dodges Benezet's Diving Kick.

Benezet          0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1           Lilith

Benezet comes down into a tumble and flip kick--however she has already darted across the graveyard floor away from him, her boots hovering a milimeter off the surface of the grass as her wings fluttered. She made it look easy.

"You're getting tired there, chocolate man--why don't you just give in and let Lilith take over here?" Lilith grinned and produced a black silk tophat that was glowing with a prismatic energy--her own brand of psi power, tossing it toward the bokor with a cry of,

Benezet          0/-------/-======|=------\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet sticks his palm forward, catching the energy, and then hurling it back with an explosion of light with a rapid lightning arc and a thunder clap of screams from beyond.

Animals howl and caw and screech, the night lighting up with a crescendo as there are moans from the wakened dead.

COMBATSYS: Benezet successfully hits Lilith with Touch of Death.
Glancing Blow

Benezet          0/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0           Lilith

Lilith's hair begins to rise after her failed hat throw--goddamn hat, it never works when she wants it to--only when others turn it on her! Hat of betrayal!

"What is that?!" she feels the horrible screams as well as feels it--pulling herself up into the air and trying to come down on Benezet with one of her stiletto heeled boots turning into a large scythe blade!

COMBATSYS: Lilith successfully hits Benezet with Diving Kick.

[                      \\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Benezet          1/-----==/=======|====---\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet screams as his arm is nearly removed, crumpling to the ground beneath Lilith.

As he lays at her feet, back slowly rising and falling, he feels his inhuman blood flow into the graveyard, the souls of orphans rising up in faintly hallowed willow wisps, calling out to both of them to be their champions.

And then, as Benezet's blade flies across the graveyard and into his hand, he pushes upwards, attempting to jam his blade into Lilith's navel.

"These are my children, Lilith Aensland! They will watch as I banish you!"

"Jeez, I hope you didn't need that arm for anything--if you give up now I think the docs can superglue it back on!" Lilith giggles a bit cruelly, her boot reforming into it's 'normal' shape.

Benezet then attempts to gore her stomach out using that blade of his--and Lilith flutters into the air--coming down against him as he rises to strike with his weapon--the heels of her boots extending into real-time stilettos--the kind that punctured the lungs of soldiers in World War 1!

Benezet          0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1           Lilith

Benezet sinks to the ground, his hand dragging along Lilith's stomach and thigh as he deflates onto his face, head between her boots.

Shaking and shuddering in a rickety rhapsody of rattles and gurgles, he blasts off the ground in one final show of force, leaping up with Lilith hopefully below him, grabbing her legs with his hands and launching through the air at a mausoleum.

If he manages to pull her onto his shoulders and take her on his magic carpet ride, he'll slam them both into the mausoleum, completely destroying it and sending it up in an explosion of psionic energy, rotted body parts, embalming fluid, stone, marble, and stench dust.

Benezet          0/-------/-----==|=======\-------\1           Lilith

"Jeez, you've got more holes in you than Kevin Spacey's alibi at this point, Bene baby--" and then Lilith is pulled up to be given a ride of sorts--now hitched to Benezet's shoulders, her legs curling around his neck.

"Woah! So forward!" Lilith forms her wings into large red arms--using them to break their falls and then meanwhile tries to use her grasp on Bene with her legs to throw him down into the ground--hard!

COMBATSYS: Benezet blocks Lilith's Fast Throw.

[                           \\\  < >  ///////////                   ]
Benezet          0/-------/----===|=======\=------\1           Lilith

Benezet crashes into the mausoleum and is dismounted by Lilith, leaving him to suffer the damage. He emerges, a ghoul in literal shape now as well as the previous figurative.

He picks up a golden coffin rung, and chases after Lilith, swinging at her left and right, recklessly.

"Gon' bust your head in, pixie dust!" he curses.

"Come here--if you want to swing it around, do it with me!" Lilith wreaths herself in shining energy again--trying to bum rush toward Benezet and unleash another flurry of blows!

She's pushing her luck here--and she's super tired here too--though she's trying hard not to show it. Who knows how this will go.

COMBATSYS: Lilith interrupts Aggressive Strike from Benezet with Luminous Illusion.

Benezet          0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0           Lilith

Benezet bobs and weaves throughout the flurry of blows, responding with kicks and punches of his own, thrown backwards throughout the graveyard as he gets the occasional jab or knee in.

And then, he's struck across the jaw with a punch, and falls sidelong to the ground, first onto his knee, then onto his back.

He lays there, underneath the moon, with his arms spread and his right knee crooked, left leg straight. His head slowly turns to his right, showing the left side of his face upwards, and then he blacks out from blood loss.

COMBATSYS: Benezet can no longer fight.

                                  |===----\-------\0           Lilith

Lilith is practically falling over the bokor as the flurry of her combo ends, leaving the black man on the ground. Silhoutted by the moon, she half-collapses, half-falls to her knees against the man's side--reaching down to lift up his upper body and sort of 'cradle' him in her arms.

"Phew, put up a tough fight, chocolate man, now I'm going to show you a kiss of my own~" the succubus smiles, her lips parting as she slowly descends on the voodoo man...

But who can say what really happens next...?

COMBATSYS: Lilith has ended the fight here.
