SNF 2018.09 - SNF: Viva La Colde

[Toggle Names]

Description: A common face in the underground tournament circuit in Paris, Remy rises from the depth of street fighting to the SNF format. Heading to the outskirts of his hometown, his opponent is the beautiful yet mysterious Velvet Blue. Taking place at the ancestral home of the Colde family, they will face off against the backdrop of the famous Colde art piece. Can Remy handle the devilish dance of Velvet Blue, or will he find himself caught in the Rondo of Doom?

The tours were not so heavy this time of year. The high season being over, the Chateau de Colde had a strange sort of privacy, different than the experience of so many visitors there had experienced. Perhaps this is what is was like for the noble Charlotte when she lived there. That would certainly explain her need to go out and see the world. Even with all of this here she was not rooted, thought Remy. He, on the other hand, grew up with next to nothing, but still, they both shared that lack of home now. Normally he would not attend a place such as this, but it gave him some time to walk around and sort through his thoughts. Besides, it wasn't like he didn't have SOME appreciate for the arts. He looked around. It maybe, he thought, if he timed it just right, he could slip into the parts of the chateau that weren't open to the public without anyone noticing.

Velvet was still busy on their phone as they arrived in the Chateau. France had been a pretty amazing spot for them already, and they had almost begrudgingly torn themselves away from some of the nightlife and restaurants before heading over there for the SNF thing. Hey, it was Paris! And it was Velvet Blue's kind of place. They were dressed rather modestly for the fight, dark spandex undersuit, (with appropriate port for the tail, that might have been a little covert) along with some shin high boots, leaving the rest of them fairly unrestricted and able to move. Of course, he'd worn a long coat over that--didn't want too much press, after all.

"Wow, look at this place... they say a princess lives here?? I don't know too many of those, only queens," Velvet grins at his own joke that likely goes over the heads of many--not that there is too many here, besides whatever crew was set up here to film. He'd slip his phone into his jacket and find a place to hang it, stalking out to try and meet the one they called Remy.

"Hiii there, love the teal color in your hair, by the way--been thinking of dying mine myself--so... you want to get this thing started?" the long-haired figure grinned, rolling their neck about and popping joints in preparation.

Remy maintains his composure at the sight of the arrival. His face stays mostly nuetral, with nothing more than a head tilt and raised eyebrow. "...and people get on me grief for my sense of style..." he grunts. He turns to the side and pulls out from his jacket a small flash and takes a sip. "You able to hold yours?" He asks Velvet, wanting to give at least the appearance of politeness and offering a drink.

Due to the magical aegis around Velvet normally, most people couldn't see their... non-human attributes. Other fighters and chi users usually could, as well as psycho power wielders. Thus, tonight, Velvet would be appearing in their full glamorous selves, bat ears, blue spaded tail, yellow cat-like eyes and fangs and all. Velvet strode up to the french fighter and blew them a kiss before getting into position, grinning and giggling mischievously as they did so.

"Oh I know how you feel, everyone rags on my style too, jealous people, and all that, but enough talk~" Velvet Blue did their best Arnie impression for that last bit, cookie if you get the reference.

"Hold mine? you mean color? Not sure, this black is au naturale, baby," he raked pointed nailed fingers through his hair, before getting into a fighting stance.

They made a gesture in the air, and an array of rainbow-colored shapes sprang out at Remy--chi projectiles?!

Remy tries to dodge Velvet's attack but misses. Still holding his flask, he throws it to the side and goes after Velvet Blue with a jump kick!

"Just couldn't stay away there, huh? I know how that is--eek!" Velvet however is surprised at the Frenchman's speed when he closes distance and jumps in--landing a kick that the former actor takes hard to the shoulder--but managed to turn to avoid taking it in his ribs, or somewhere even worse. "Oww oww ow--okay, the gloves can come off now~ And I didn't even wear any to this!" Velvet brings their booted foot up and around to try and land a harsh kick in return to Remy's midsection!

"Oof, you're fast--" Velvet had to regain his balance a bit after Remy turned his kick away, nearly falling. "Thanks, I'm told my legs are my best asset," he winks with a grin at Remy, before he's forced to roll out of the way from Remy's flip kick attack! As Remy lands hoever, Velvet snaps his fingers and the area he's about to land in /glows/ with chi-energy, just before it explodes!

As Remy attempts to interrupt his chi-explosion maneuever, the Frenchman pre-empts him with with a chi-based attack of his own--causing the darkstalker to try and turn the attack back towards him with a surge of chi energy--it doesn't totally work--and both wind up battered by it! And Velvet looks like he's pretty worse for wear, after that. Not counting what's happened to his suit~

Remy bites his lip in fury. He can't let this guy see it but he feels it welling inside of him. He is getting battered. He didn't take his opponent seriously enough at first...merde...change of strategy. Let's get a better feel for him and try something safer...

"Didn't know you were able to wield energy that well too--phew," Velvet pulls himself back up to full height after that stunning display of them trying to blast eachother--only to try and block the frenchies incoming kick--taking it mostly badly to his side, causing him to double over. "I knew I shouldn't have tried the mulled wine before coming here," Velvet gasps, trying to regain their composure, meanwhile ducking low to try and deliver a low palm-strike to Remy's ribs!

Remy, feeling proud of himself having landed a strike, puts in a slight smirk. "You haven't seen anything yet..." Standing firm, he feels the jolt of a strike against his chest, but with a deep inhale lets out his LIGHT.OF.JUSTIIIICE!!

"The liiiight~" Velvet can't manage much more as the light bears down on him--more or less cooking him and throwing him back, the tips of his hair and the front of the performer's suit smoking from it. He's sent rolling by it, but eventually picks himself back up, breathing heavily, but still going. Just then... Velvet disappears. However, a pair of yellow eyes along with a big ivory grin appears over Remy's grin a short time later, Velvet Blue de-cloaking just before he begins to try and give the frenchman an ambush--a flurry of blows, kicks and even a good drag with his claws or two--for good measure.

COMBATSYS: Remy blocks Velvet Blue's Cheshire Grin.

something didn't seem right. Looks like Velvet had a trick hiding up those long coatsleeves. One moment Remy had Velvet right in his field of vision and then--woosh--gone. And then suddenly-out of nowhere a clawstrik! A kick! Remy new it was coming, but didn't expect it to bite into him so much...but he can't give up now. "And ambush? Shameful!" Remy isn't going to lose no matter how much he is getting knocked.

COMBATSYS: Velvet Blue blocks Remy's Disturbed Sleep Outline.

Velvet is hurt, he's also super tired--but the shifting invisible for a moment seemed to have allowed him some element of surprise that he'd lacked so far, with his manuevers against the frenchman. "I can play all sorts of tricks, too, babe," he winked, panting a bit, picking a bit of fabric out of his left claw-like nail and tossing it away. "I just need to... get my bearing a little bit--hnnggh!" he growls a little as Remy comes at him again--this time the darkstalker is ready, blocking it and jumping back a bit before sucking in air and trying to get his wits back about him.

COMBATSYS: Velvet Blue gains composure.

Remy             0/-------/---<<<<|=======\-------\0      Velvet Blue

Remy is feeling in the zone now--everything feels more real to him as he takes in his surroundings. His opponent hasn't attempted to land a move yet, and Remy gets ready as well...

COMBATSYS: Remy gains composure.

"Hope you got a nice breather there, because I'm just getting warmed up, sunshine!" Velvet's eyes flash white for a moment, crackling before a pair of eyelasers lance out from his eyes--running along the palace floor and traveling right toward Remy--trying to cut him? Or blast him? It's hard to tell--but the twin beams are brilliant and seem comprised of strong chi energy!

"Ow, I... really thought that would work, I--" he blinks a little, thinking about Remy's question. "I don't bite /hard/, if that's what you're thinking--" Remy's deadly dancing attack though lands squarely, leaving the darkstalker a wreck. "Okay, I just need to... take a lie down, you know, but first," he darts towards Remy, trying to land one final strike with a fist!

COMBATSYS: Remy endures Velvet Blue's Medium Strike.

Remy, resolute, takes a hard bunch from Velvet. It stings, but he isn't going to let it show. He sees his opponent reeling from his last flurry of attacks "They say bad things come in threes, but I know from experience life isn't as merciful as that. And neither--am I!"

"God what do they make frenchmen out of now--adamantium--ahhh!" Velvet tries to block the man's next direct blow--he manages it, but as he attempts to duck down and swing his foot around in a roundhouse kick--as he does so however, the heel of his boot snaps--Velvet going down at the same time as he throws that kick--going down hard and likely knocking himself silly!

"Oh shi--"

This is my luck! Thinks Remy...I deserved this all along...we all deserve this...but he tries to at least stay on his feet

COMBATSYS: Remy takes no action.

COMBATSYS: Remy can no longer fight.

It would appear both of them are out of it. Velvet is sprawled out on the floor somewhere nearby, swirly-eyed. It would appear they had a bit of a footwear malfunction there. Note to self, wear flats to next Saturday Night Fights... blargh.

Remy rolls over and finds he flask. He reaches for it but realizes he didn't close it before throwing it down, and everything that was in it has leaked out. Life hurts you, then it takes away your anesthesia...
