Description: Frost and Alice discover a few things about each other as they fight it out.
Frost had offered her new friend training, and when it came to Kombat, the cybernetic ice kunoichi definitely did not mess around.
Being a life long street fighter an ex-Lin Kuei and part of the NESTS Cartel meant that Frost had a lot of connections among the fighting world, and it was through those connections that she had found about this mysterious place. Frost had been here before for personal one on one duels to the death and it was rather refreshing that for once she'd enter this place with thoughts of friendship instead of thinking she might not make it out of here alive.
Having sent her invitation and directions through Alice's phone, with the explicit instructions not to tell anyone else about this place, Frost awaited the arrival of her friend sitting in traditional seiza stance, an upright kneeling position with hands on her knees. She was dressed in her usual ninja garb which was the most comfortable thing for her to wear in Kombat- hopefully it won't creep Alice too much.
Alice was kind of surprised, but also a little excited that Frost had apparently secured some special location for their spar. Once she arrives she's taken aback by how pretty the area around this out of the way dojo is, certainly appears to be a place she wouldn't mind coming to for training. Alice unfortunately doesn't own any sort of martial arts outfit, so she shows up wearing a slightly loose fitting t-shirt and some shorts that upon close inspection look like they are capable of stretching if needed. She also has what looks like a very extensive first aid kit in one hand, which she sets down at the edge of the room before aproaching Frost and sitting down near her, taking a moment to meditate and clear her mind.
The moment Alice entered the dojo Frost's fierce blue eyes opened and looked over her direction. Something about Frost's movements were way too sharp, as if they were almost robotic in fashion despite not lacking any fluidity. She certainly wasn't stiff, quite the contrary...
"Sup??" Despite her stoic body movement, Frost was her usual up front and personal ex-gang banger. She grinned over at Alice once she thought they both had enough meditation. "Looking good, babe. Glad you found the place." She chuckled a little and looked over the med kit that Alice brought. "Good call bringing that. Don't think we'll need it but better safe than sorry." She lied through her teeth- if someone fought Frost they better believe there was going to be plenty of lacerations, but Frost wasn't trying to make her new friend nervous and she was going to try and take it easy.
"So, ready to start or do ya need to stretch first?"
Alice nods as she stands, and does take a moment to stretch a bit, no sense pulling a muscle or something for a practice fight. She nods at the comment that they probably wouldn't need the first aid kit she brought. "Hopefully we won't, but even in a spar things can go wrong, and this might be a bit too remote for an ambulance to get here, and if they're sending a medivac, better have really good insurance..." She says with a knowing grin. "Anyway yes, I think I'm ready as I'll ever be, not sure what to expect from you since we kinda just met yesterday."
"Heh, you're not wrong." Frost dusted her knees a little and rolled her head around her shoulders. "I'd say I'll try and go easy on you but I don't wanna sound disrespectful. Just throw everything you got at me and I'll return the favor. Don't worry about me- I can take it." She smiled before placing her ninja mask on, her icy eyes growing fierce.
"Well.." She took a ready Tongbeiquan stance, fists closed before her, one up by her face and the other low by her stomach, her feet were apart with most of her weight resting on the back leg. "In a fight you usually don't know what to expect so it's perfect practice in that regard." A dark chuckle came from her before growing serious again.
"Let's dance, babe."

Alice nods again, she gets the feeling that Frost is clearly the more experienced fighter of the two of them, but she hopes Frost won't have to go too easy on her, she does know how to fight and has done so on many occasions. "I'll try not to disappoint you then!" She says with a grin, falling into her own fighting stance, her legs apart, one hand up near her upper chest, the other out in front of her waist, though a big difference between the two is Alice's left hand is making a fist, while her right is open.
When Frost says to dance and seems to be letting her make the first move, she quickly moves in, her other hand balling into a fist as she throws out a few quick jabs, with the second of the three aimed upward toward her jaw, and she follows the punches up with a low kick toward her right thigh.

Solid proper form so far. It wasn't like Frost was thoroughly underestimating Alice here, as a very experienced fighter, Frost knew that not taking a fight seriously was a ticket to an early grave. A lot of times all it took was one wrong move to lose, dodge right when you should have dodged left and all that. Frost was taking this seriously, and the thing was that she was just confident in her abilities as a warrior.
It was why when Alice came at her she was ready. Frost backed up as the girl jabbed high, two quick blocks with her palm to stop the jabs and then curling her leg to check the kick coming at her thigh, taking it on the shin instead. "Good so far!" She said and made it look like she was to swing a punch at Alice.
Instead -and this would be Alice's first lesson in surprise attacks- Frost brought her foot up high and tried to STOMP Alice's foot, channeling freezing chi to both injure her foot and freeze her to the ground.

Alice appreciates Frost's praise of her first attack, but they are just getting started, and part of her wonders if she's just trying to distract her with nice comments. Alice does fall for the feint as she backs up slightly, though if she has one thing going for her, it's speed, and when Frost's leg rises, she quickly moves to meet it with a strike of her knee, knocking the attack away from stomping her foot.
She crouches low like she's going to go for a sweeping kick, but instead, she uses her strong legs to quickly spring herself upward in a clockwise spin that aims to drive both her fists into Frost's chest on the way up.

CASE IN POINT! "Ooof! Well shit!" Despite all her warrior training, Frost was not at all impervious to getting faked out herself. She was just about to try and get out of the way from the spinning kicks to her feet when Alice was springing forward and SLAMMING her fists on her chest! Yowch!
Frost reeled back, but despite the solid hit that landed on her she didn't look more annoyed than anything else. "Not bad!!" Oh, and she looked a bit pissed too. As much as she really liked Alice, Frost definitely had a temper and she had a hard time keeping her ego out of things. Now that she gotten hit hard she felt it was necessary to hit Alice for real!
"HRRAAAH!" Cold eyes growing fiercer, Frost closed the distance again and threw a double punch of her own. One punch sailed for Alice's head whilst the other came down below to her chest, trying to make it difficult for Alice to try and defend against a double attack. As before, her fists appeared to be coated with ice energy to make them extra painful.

Alice finds that Frost is pretty quick herself and that two-pronged attack leaves her bracing her head with one of her arms, but mostly just taking the blow to her chest. She winces in pain but isn't about to let the pain stop her. She now aims to attack while also putting some distance between them, performing a triple somersault with each flip launching a high kick, and with the final one, she leaps backward a bit.

Frost's sneer was short lived after her attacks connected with Alice. Even as she was pushing the other woman backwards and away from her, she was already feeling Alice's fighting spirit surging forward in retaliation. Frankly, Alice was not disappointing thus far and she's actually, perhaps, tougher than Frost initially anticipated, having thought that the last attack would at least leave her reeling.
It was not so, Alice surged forth and started front flipping towards her slamming her heels against the top of the blunette's head. "HRRGH!" Even though Frost brought her arms up to guard, the strong kicks still managed to break to her defense to hit her quite solidly.
Still, now that this was a good proper brawl, Frost was not about to let Alice get away so easily. She rushed after her as she backflipped away and tried to simply catch her mid flip with a tackle and SLAM the back of Alice's head on the ground hard.

Alice Nonomura 1/--=====/=======|-------\-------\0 Frost
Alice sees Frost charging toward her as she is mid-leap in her attempt to distance herself from the icy ninja. She had somewhat expected Frost might do that to keep up the aggression and not give her any room to breathe, but as she's in mid-air, she doesn't really have many options to avoid the attack. So with a bit of focus, there is a bright flash as she changes forms, and she tries to brace for the impact as she lands, her body now having bulked up a lot, with more muscle and bigger hands and feet, but the attack still pierces her defenses and she lets out a very rabbit-like cry as she is knocked down and her head slams into the floor.
She still looks to be in pain as she moves to counter, moving to push Frost off of her as she gets up and goes into a flurry of strikes, with three quick jabs at her midsection, then a crouch into jab toward her gut, rising to throw three more jabs at her midsection and finally a hook toward the side of her head.

Finally! A solid hit, and one that Alice definitely felt. Frost had a distinct knack for knowing these things. The last double punch somehow had emboldened Alice into attacking harder, but this one had put the hurt on her, enough to stagger her fighting spirit. If Frost was feeling particularly cruel she would follow it up with some rude commentary, but instead she decided to say something encouraging--
"WHAT THE HELL!?" Anyway, that was the idea- but just as she was straightening up, Alice was gone and a giant rabbit creature was coming at her with a flurry of attacks. "Oh my God-- YOU'RE A BUNNY!" Frost should frankly be terrified, but she appears to be cackling in delight. She back pedaled and brought her hand up, stopping the attacks with her open palm, then bringing her shin up to stop the ducking punch, and finally brought her arm up to shoulder block the hook to the side of her head. Even though she sounded incredibly surprised she defended herself expertly.
"That explains the red eyes.. when were you planning on telling me you're a wererabbit exactly!?" As she was asking that question she was still attacking her. Frost moved forward and tried to wrap her arms tightly around Alice, squeezing that plushy bunny form trying to encase her in ice.

"Well... it's not something I go around telling everyone I meet, for what should be fairly obvious reasons, but considering you're not exactly a normal human either, I guess there is no point in keeping these secrets from each other!" Alice responds quickly and is almost caught off guard when Frost goes to give her now much more fluffy and huggable form a hug, but surely there was an ulterior motive so she quickly attempts to knock her arms away as she leaps high up into the air, aiming to come back down with both of those large rabbit feet on Frost's head.

Of course, the ulterior motive was actually trying to freeze her in place- but it wasn't as if Frost was trying to hide her intentions so she's not all that surprised when Alice broke the grapple and pushed her away. "AGGH!" Frost winced as she got kicked on the head with strong rabbit feet, but despite wearing her ninja mask, Alice would probably be able to tell she was smiling.
"So, you figured it out too, huh? I guess I wasn't really trying to hide it myself either." Because indeed, Frost was no normal human. She was a cyborg!
"Since the cat.. or the bunny.. is out the bag.." Frost's back suddenly opened up to reveal two machine gun looking things that mounted on her shoulders. There was a beeping noise as Frost's targeting systems locked onto Alice and she began firing a barrage of ice shurikens at the wererabbit.

Alice nods as Frost comments that she figured it out, and grins at her comical line about the bunny being out of the bag. Her big ruby eyes widen though as Frost pulls some kind of guns out of her back that shoot ice shurikens. She may be quick, but if rabbits could dodge bullets the world would probably be swarming with them. She covers her face with one arm and her chest with the other as she attempts to endure the barrage, but it's clear that it takes its toll on her, as she gives a few more cries of pain as some of the shurikens still make it through her defenses.
When the barrage is over, it looks like Alice has about had it, but she looks like she wants to go down swinging, and quickly somersaults towards Frost, going for another flying kick, this time aiming to launch Frost into the air, whether the kick lands or misses, she shifts back to human form at that moment. What follows is a flurry of high punches and low kicks before she finally leaps upwards in a spiral, throwing out punches as she spins to bring Frost rising up with her, and finally ends by hitting her away with her butt, posing in the air while an explosion of hearts appear, with a stream of them following Frost.

COMBATSYS: Frost reflects Bunny Love from Alice Nonomura with Glacier Calving.
> ////////// ]
Under any other circumstances, Frost would -love- to be on the receiving end of something called Bunny Love.
But this was a fight, and just because she liked Alice it didn't mean that she was going to hold still and let the wererabbit put her fluffy mitts all over her- more's the shame.
"Pipe down, bunny!!" As Alice rushed in for a desperation attack to put Frost down, those same mounted shoulder cannons of her shifted gears and fired beams of ice that literally froze Alice in place, stopping her before she reached her target.
Once there was an ice bunny shaped statue in front of her, Frost's cannons returned to being inside her body again and she walked up to Alice, picking her up and shaking her vigorously to break her free from the ice. "You okay, honey bunny?" Ah good, now she had -another- pet name for her.
Alice had shifted back in the midst of her attack, though really could use that fur right now as she's freezing from having just been made into a human popsicle. She shivers for a moment as she focuses hard and musters up what little strength she has left and shifts back into her rabbit form, her teeth are still chattering a bit as she answers. "Freee-zing, but oook. Goood fightt." She stutters out through more shivers.
She doesn't really mind that she lost, it was good training, and dare she admit, fun? Once she's warmed up a bit and her teeth are no longer chattering as she shivers, she stands up and stretches, while her stomach growls. "Did you bring anything to eat? I'm starving. Going werebunny works up an appetite."
"Man, that's some trick." Frost was still in awe at Alice's capability of turning into a wererabbit. Just las week she ran into a legit succubus, and now this?? Had she been living under a rock her whole life that she hadn't noticed these creatures of the night? Well, all things considered she did stick almost exclusively to the underground fighting district, and maybe, she had been around them all this time but it was just now that she was out of the shadows that she noticed them. Very ironic.
It was an impressive ability true, but not something she'd want for herself, being a cyborg already felt like it completed her. Still, -being- with a wererabbit sounded like a lot of fun. Frost stood there awkwardly, as if she had been the one frozen in place, her eyes looking at Bunny Alice up and down. "Wow..uh.. I mean- yeah! Good fight! You're much better than I thought." Though that was putting it lightly.
Frost resisted the urge to hug Bunny Alice as she looked just so dang huggable before realizing her sparring partner was asking for food. "Huh?? Oh.. dang! You know what? I didn't think of that. Was too focused on getting medic kit." She scratched her head. "Wanna get some hot cocoa? I know good place not far from here."
Alice while it might be a little awkward mostly because they still are getting to know each other, Alice otherwise wouldn't mind Frost giving her a hug as long as she isn't using it as a feint for something else like in their fight. She smiles at the praise of her being better than Frost thought she'd be. "Thanks, I've never fought anyone quite like you before, though I did overhear some talk about someone who could transform into some sort of demon cyborg just like how I can become a rabbit like this... Might have just been a crazy rumor though, can't even fathom how that would work."
She shrugs and shakes her head. "Anyway, hot cocoa sounds great, maybe they'll have some snacks to go with it. Lead the way!" She offers as she gets up and brushes herself off a bit, glad she finally figured out some clothes that won't get torn to shreds when she transforms, even if they're not the most fashionable.
