SNF 2022.11 - Into the Dollhouse

[Toggle Names]

Description: Chris finds himself lured by a mysterious set of text messages to the London Bridge during a huge traffick jam--little does he know, one of Vega's loyal brainwashed minions has set their sights on him! Perhaps Shadaloo wants him for some kind of weird experimentation, or perhaps they suspect he's part of a secret Iori cloning accident--either way, when Vega says he wants someone, so shall it be. Can the Tempo Mixer resist the charm and ferocity of the leader of Shadaloo's Elite Guards? Or might he wind up F.A.N.G's latest science project?

Chris arrives on the London bridge after receiving a set of mysterious text messages. His curiosity peaked to the max by those messages. Strangely or perhaps not so strangely, he came alone to the meeting point. Well alone is a big word considering the big jam happening on the bridge. Does it have anything to do with his mysterious texter?

The text didn't say one way or another if it was a fight, but Chris doesn't push that possibility out of the way as he makes his way between cars. He isn't very concerned, at least at the moment. "Hello?!" He tries to be loud enough, but the cars were honking and the drivers yelling at times. It is even hard to keep track of everything, but hopefully, he didn't come here for nothing.

For anyone trying to get him, he is dressed in one of his regular attires, black bermudas, a blue t-shirt, and black sneakers. He would be easy to spot.

COMBATSYS: Chris has started a fight here.

"Enero. I have a task for you. Our agents have engineered a ... confrontation. A scene on the London Bridge with a person of interest to my newest program."

Vega, the Lord of Shadaloo floats an inch off the ground, towering over his loyal serbant. His smile is a horrible rictus, eyes glowing white. Somehow, his cape flutters inside.

"I do not care if you best him. Merely collect a sample of his DNA, and you will have succeeded. Do you have any questions?

Enero snaps a salute. "No, Lord Vega."

Then go."


Traffic is blocked terribly along the London Bridge. Horns and angry British voices echo across the Thames and beyond. The police haven't managed to get it under control or cleared. It seems their presence is spread thin, a string of violence has wound around Londontown, and no one is sure who is to blame.

Darting up one of the steel cables towards the towers is a lithe, pink haired young woman. She is not dressed for the weather in her long sleeved crop top, miniskirt and tights, but she doesn't seem bothered. She crests the top, staring down towards the center of the bridge. In an impossible move, she races towards the edge and leaps out, only to suddenly switch directions in midair, triangle jumping on nothing. She hurtles through open space towards the confused Chris.

For some reason, she has a megaphone in her hand. That she swings at him on her way by.

Whether she hits him or not, she hits the pavement, rolling to her feet to sway at the ready. She gives Chris a wink for some reason.

COMBATSYS: Enero has joined the fight here.

Chris doesn't catch all of the impossible move, as impressive as it is. He does catch enough of it to react. He jumps to the side on top of a car, narrowly dodging a megaphone to the head. It also gives him a round of curse from the driver inside, but Chris doesn't mind him. He minds the girl who seems to want to fight. He can give her that.

After a moment, he speaks. "Hello there, are you the one who send me all those messages?" It was a stupid question, they both know it's a yes, so why ask, but he does anyway. Before even waiting for an answer, he swiftly glides toward his her and aims a right punch toward her. He definitely has quickness to him and he doesn't care to wait to know what she wants.

COMBATSYS: Chris successfully hits Enero with Slide Touch.
- Power hit! -

Enero giggles a little at the question, sizing Chris up a bit. "Oh, -I- didn't send them, but I know who did!" She seems almost bubbly, which might seem just a little strange. In the light, her outfit is possibly familiar. Despite the customizations, it's awful close to Shadallo combat wear.

Her psychic abilities make reading people easier, so she is prepared for Chris to move, but she is not prepared for how -fast- he is. She moves her arms, bringing them up to block, but before they're even halfway into position, he's already there. He's stronger than he looks too, sending her backwards to leave a sizable dent in the door of a car. She looks annoyed as she shakes it off, but it certainly did something.

Enero suddenly lifts into the air and rockets at Chris feet first, spinning through the air. Her timing is incredible as she waits til the last possible instant, throwing herself to her feet and skirting right past him. She lashes out with one arm to grab at his arm, then with a twist of her hips, attempts to hurl -him- into a car.

Chris notes she seems happy to be here. Who doesn't want a good fight, especially against him? Can't blame her.

He manages to hit his attack, but the way she reacted, she was ready for his move, just not how he would deliver it. One point for him. Now, to keep her to 0. How long can he do that for...

There she goes, going into the air and spinning while up there. She has some great moves he has to give her that. She's even fast once she is in range and grabs him. Chris does not evade the grab but shifts himself in mid-air so his feet are hitting the car.

Once his feet do hit the car, he uses the momentum to push himself off toward Enero, lands rolling on the ground and as he gets up, does a full body spinning double-handed backfist toward her.

Whether he hits her or not, he then says "You will have to do better than that." This time he's the one winking. Of course, he's saying that, but he's aware she's no joke.

COMBATSYS: Chris successfully hits Enero with Spinning Array.

Chris            0/-------/----===|=======\-------\0            Enero

This is not Enero's day. This kid is wicked fast, and she is not delivering. She can almost feel the heavy pressure of Lord Vega in the back of her mind, chiding her for her failures. She tries to evade, but the distraction of her thoughts is enough for Chris to clip her twice, once with each fist, making her stumble with a cry. She scrubs a trickle of blood from her lips and grits her teeth.

"For Lord Vega."

She throws herself at him in a whirl of pink hair and fluttering skirt. Honestly, it's almost identical to what Chris just did, save that she's spinning forwards and striking with the foreside of her fists. Good for the goose, good for the gander and all that.

COMBATSYS: Enero successfully hits Chris with Axle Spin Knuckle.

Chris            0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1            Enero

This time he's not fast enough. Or perhaps it's because she mentions Lord Vega. Probably a mix of the two. Whatever the reason, he gets hit hard, and she gets her wish. He is sent right into a car, bending the door a bit. "oof."

This doesn't keep him down, however, even if he feels bruises already forming on his body. He spits some blood on the ground. "Not bad kiddo, good hit." Of course she's most likely older than him, but Chris has his ways.

He slides toward Enero once again, and if he has his way, he goes by her side and send his right elbow toward the side of her head. As he does so, fire chi can be felt coming from him. It has more of an effect inward then out, as it seems to make him feel better instead of making his attack fiery. He does look pleasantly surprised at that. It doesn't look ike it was done on purpose.

COMBATSYS: Enero interrupts Aggressive Strike from Chris with Cannon Strike.

Chris            1/---====/=======|=======\====---\1            Enero

Her fists strike and send Chris tumbling, which makes Enero feel a little better. She spots the blood on the ground and notes it for later, one way or another. She takes his reeling as a moment to re-center herself, taking a deep breath. When her eyes open, they glow with Psycho Power. It's a strange, menacing look from Enero, who honestly is among the least threatening looking of the Dolls. (It's the hair.)

Chris comes in, fists on fire, and the Doll jumps, twisting in midair. She swings a booted foot out, and it's immediately engulfed in crackling pink Psychic energy. She rockets downwards, leading with her boot to burst through Chris's firey assault.

Enero eyes glow is indeed creepy, but Chris doesn't react to it. Or possibly he didn't see it. Of course, if she feels him, she would get he saw it and wasn't affected by it in a way that made sense. In fact, one thought that came forth is. ~I don't have to hold back now~ The question is, was he holding back before in the first place?
% At this moment, it doesn't matter as Enero catches him off guard interrupting his attack with Psychic energy. A boot to the face which rocks his bells in more ways than one. It hurts, and she can feel it. It is also visible on his face soon enough. He isn't strong on his feet for a moment, yet manages to stay up, anger rising inside of him. How can she be so fast? Yeah, no holding back.

The anger rising helps him steady himself, and then he rapidly slides forward to her in a blur, doing multiple palm strikes at her (if he has his way). Each palm strike is accompanied by a burst of explosive chi. He pushes himself to be faster and stronger than he has been. Then he finishes up with a straight punch, leaning into it. In this attack, he wanted to hurt her hard.

COMBATSYS: Chris successfully hits Enero with Chain Slide Burst.

Chris            0/-------/-------|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2            Enero

Enero burst through Chris's attack, bouncing off of her kick to land on her feet at the ready. She's feeling fantastic, flush with energy. She grins to herself, pink curls bouncing as she makes ready for Chris to come at her.

She is unprepared.

He is a blur, lashing out with palm strikes and explosive chi. She is rocked, sent staggering by this. She's barely upright when the final blow comes, Chris's fist erupting in fire and sending her flying. She sails through the air, arcing backwards when her flight path alters, her ragdolling body shifting at an unnatural angle to have her land on the pavement where Chris spat blood earlier. A voice echoes from everywhere and nowhere.

"Finish your task, Enero."

With shaky hands, the Doll produces a vial, scooping up as much of the blood as she can. The instant she stoppers the bottle, the air near her ripples, a momentary void erupting near her as a massive man appears. His grin is a terrible expression, oozing malice and black humor. His glowing eyes regard Chris, sizing the young man up. "Your strength impresses me, young man. I will watch your growth with interest," rumbles Vega, Lord of Shadaloo. He gestures, and the weak Enero rises from the ground, draping limply over one of the Dictator's arms. "Perhaps we will meet again, young Chris."

Vega laughs, a sound of terrible mirth, and the air warps again. In another instant, the two are gone.

COMBATSYS: Enero can no longer fight.

Chris            0/-------/-------|

Chris gave it all in that move. Part of him was in for the kill. This time it works as he is strong enough, fast enough, and destructive enough to dispatch her. Yet, he's ready to continue. He looks willing to hurt her more at that moment. "You thought you would be good enough?! Nice try, yeah." But before he can continue, there is a voice that stops him in his track.

He looks around, but at that moment, there is nowhere, in particular, the voice is coming from. He ends up seeing Enero getting his blood. He finds it weird, but he does not think of the ramifications it could bring, not at the moment. He doesn't have a lot of time to think about it as the massive man appears. Chris can feel the power from him, and when he speaks, Chris should probably be scared, but he answers this way. "I am sure she tried her best to please you. Don't be too disappointed. Not everyone can be a great fighter." The way he ordered her around and took her, he figured she was something to him. "Oh, you should come to a CYS concert, just don't have her try to outperform me. One defeat is enough." And with that, the two are gone. Perhaps he heard, perhaps he didn't. Even with the passive-aggressive way he talked down Enero, he still knows deep down she did some great hits, and there was some luck on his end to go with his skills. He would have to be on his guard from now on.

COMBATSYS: Chris has ended the fight here.
