Fightfest 2023 - Round 1: Ayala vs Coco

[Toggle Names]

Description: With the first round of fights drawn, two female fighters find themselves facing off in what one commentator describes as 'a competition to see who can kick the highest.' In a clash of survivalist's sensibilities and modern morals, life experience and youthful naivete, which lovely lady will stand tall?

This world was still so alien to her. She had emerged in it South of the Equator, in South America. The deep rainforest and jungles there had been almost familiar--but here, standing on the edge of the mall, well--it was a little strange. The concrete didn't look like a great sort of surface to train on, for one.

But Ayala was determined--she appeared from the van she'd been brought there in by the tournament handlers and was swigging what was left out of a waterbottle and throwing her long curly blonde hair back. She looked like a genderswap of Conan the Barbarian, somehow--at least, the oldschool tribal looking sort originally written by Robert E. Howard. Bronzed, muscular, covered in light scars here and there--and she was wearing what looked like a bikini and boots made out of animal pelts. The only thing keeping her from serious Conan distaff status was the long curly blonde hair, the average height and the curves. Which well, were hard to ignore. Surely this was for dramatic effect, right?


"Hooh! Ayala ready to fight!" she gave a bit of a warcry as she tossed the waterbottle back to the men from the van and strutted out toward where the match was going to begin, the long animal tail scarf flapping along down her back and waist.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the stage, Ayala's opponent-to-be also has a mass of fur wrapped across her shoulders - except, in Coco's case, her 'scarf' is still moving, crawling around and peeking at the fans of fighting, fuzzy friends and femininity who have gathered around the purple-haired English lass to take pictures. The binturong's antics as Constance Louise Coalbridge tries to hold her stance steady for the cameras cause her to eventually burst out into giggles when the bearcat perches his chin on her crown and wraps his forepaws across her eyes. A yellow paper sailor's hat rests on top of the binturongs head.

"Oh, looks like we're playing peekaboo!" Coco laughs, before gingerly pushing the animal's claws up with her boxing gloves. Needless to say, the cameras go wild.

"Alright, Captain! It's time for Coco to go and do her match, so be a good boy for the minders, Morgie."

She picks the dark-furred binturong up and hands it over to one of the certified handlers in attendance, then turns around toward the stage, rolling her neck languorously to pop it as the weight is removed and stretching her limbs out above and below, her bare lower back and taut tummy arching as she limbers herself up for the upcoming performance. A shiny purple sports bra with the PFW logo on the front covers her bust, while a pair of shimmering shorts manages to be both loose around the legs and tight around her tush. The pose, while practical, draws several more clicks from nearby cameras, and a half-smile appears on the kickboxing dilettante's face, allowing herself a wink of a blue-grey eye for one of the photographers.

With that, she skips up onto the fighting stage, taking up a place opposite Ayala and raising her black gloves in a loose defensive guard, bending slightly at the knees. She frowns faintly as she spies the approaching blonde's furry attire.

"I hope that fur is fake. You do know we're in the twenty-first century, don't you?"

She smacks her gloves together and draws in a deep breath through her nostrils. She then adds, in a slightly more discreet tone:

"Anyways, I'll go easy if you will. A good show for the cameras, yeah? I'll be sure to sell if you do."

Coco             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Ayala

"Ayala hope for good match--also like opponent's top!" even tribal gals have to respect the fashion game, it would appear. The ape is also found curious to her, as she didn't realize there were other animal friendly types around.

"Big ape is friend?" she tilted her head as she approached Coco, crossing into the middle of the 'ring' area now, even more confused now however at her opponent's question. "Okay, okay--lets do it!" she roared and held her arms high, getting a good pop from the crowd, before launching herself at Coco, her hands wrapped together and bringing them down and around in a quick hammerblow strike, though not putting as much muscle into it as she could--this was a faster, lighter kind.

COMBATSYS: Coco blocks Ayala's Quick Smash.

Coco             0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0            Ayala

"He's more of a bearcat than an ape," Coco clarifies in reference to Captain Morgan as the playful critter scampers around the handler's feet at ringside, eluding capture, "but yeah, he's a top mate. We go everywhere together!"

When Ayala seems to agree with her request for clemency, Coco smiles and nods - then goes slightly wide-eyed as Ayala launches herself at her. The gloves come together, the padded parts absorbing the brunt of the hammer-blow as it crashes down on her. The reverberation of the impact runs through her body, setting her jiggle physics momentarily in motion.

"Bit aggro!" she declares, as if the two weren't expressly engaged in a bout of martial combat. Keeping her combat stance and loosening her guard, she steps forward with a high raised knee, feinting as if to strike with it as she closes the short gap between the two fighters. As she does, she makes a right-handed grab for Ayala's nearest arm to try and control and bypass her guard, pivoting as she does so, before snapping her right elbow over Ayala's guard and aiming for her face with the intent to daze. If she succeeds, she'll swing her shapely hips sideways to try and smack into Ayala's center of gravity and knock her off-balance. "Hup!"

COMBATSYS: Coco successfully hits Ayala with Tiki Bongo.
~~ Alluring Hit! ~~

Coco             0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0            Ayala

"Ayala always give it all!" the tribal lady huffs and tries a few more times to get past those gloves, but to no avail, mostly serving to leave them at a bit of a stalemate. That is until her arm is grabbed and elbowed before she can react, then those swervy hips are swerving in to tackle her away, bouncing the cavewoman back and sending her spawling. Oof.

"Ow, fancy lady fight alright," she shook her head and brushed an arm against her cheek, as if worried about blood--then attempted to launch herself at Coco again, this time more feral--biting and clawing!

But don't worry, she had the respect to /not/ go for the face, likely latching onto one of Coco's arms with the former, and trying to claw and punch at her midsection.

COMBATSYS: Ayala successfully hits Coco with Tooth & Nail.

Coco             0/-------/-======|=======\-------\0            Ayala

"Yeah, well, you could try an instalment plan, maybe," Coco suggests as she bounces lightly on her feet, rubbing a hand against her violently-employed hip before raising her glove again to defend herself.

Suddenly, Ayala is pouncing on her like an animal, biting at her arm and scratching at her stomach with her nails. "Ow! No! Bad Ayala!" A bewildered Coco tries to block the gnashing teeth and swiping fingers, but Ayala manages to leave red marks with both on the posh Brit's pale skin before Coco manages to push her away.

"Thank God I've had all my shots. You're worse than Morgie on a bad fur day!" Coco complains, but even as she does so, she's stepping forward aggressively, loading her left leg to pump out a straight kick at Ayala's lower body before throwing a left jab and swinging a right cross at Ayala's face in quick combination.

COMBATSYS: Ayala blocks Coco's Bloody Mary.

Coco             0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1            Ayala

The cavewoman even snarls a bit before calming down, after the other fighter pushes her away. She shakes her head, the blonde curls waving, before truly returning to normal. It was an animal-esque technique to be sure.

Ayala brings her elbow and knee up to take the impact of the kick towards her, before ducking her head and avoiding the jab, less flat-footed this time, bringing up her other elbow to block the next jab. "Fancy lady has good upper body strength! that useful!" she then attempts to reach out and grab her opponent, trying to lift and throw them across the arena!

COMBATSYS: Coco blocks Ayala's Beast Toss.

Coco             1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1            Ayala

As Ayala deftly fends off her combination, Coco starts to puff, bringing her arms back into guard as the focus in her eyes becomes more steel-like. "Well, I'm no slouch downstairs either," she comments confidently in response to Ayala's declaration. "Mostly thanks to the dancefloor!"

When the feral fighter makes a grab for her, she pushes back with her arms, struggling for a moment before breaking the grapple with a surge of effort that leaves the beginnings of bruises on her biceps. She then tries to use the opening created by the break to grab for Ayala's own shoulders and pull her down, swinging a knee up before attempting to sweep her to the ground by hooking her leg around Ayala's and pushing her down with her gloved palms.

Coco             1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1            Ayala

"Ayala will get ahold of you! grrr, so slippery!" the cavegirl rants a bit after Coco slips away from her, windinf up falling on all fours and retreating back a bit when Coco pulls back. This leaves her in perhaps a more precarious position to grab at when Coco reaches down to try and grasp her--the cavegirl uses the all-fours position to skitter back on her hands and feet, like a large cat might do when they're threatened. Coco might wind up with a few blonde hairs in her grasp, instead. Curses!

Rearing up from her all fours position, the cavewoman pulls back one of her arms for a vicious backhand strike at Coco's upper body!

COMBATSYS: Coco just-defends Ayala's Swift Backhand!

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Coco             1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1            Ayala

For all of Coco's slipperiness, it's Ayala who manages to slide out of the purple-haired girl's grasp, leaving her empty-handed - but the more-modern maiden's balance doesn't falter as she gets her guard right back up and ready for the warrior woman's reply. As the comparatively large hand swings for her chest, Coco's eyes narrow, and she presses her gloves into a solid black wall of synthetic leather, shielding her chest from the blow with a resounding *WHUMP* as the hand rebounds away. The Brit's bosoms bounce lightly as the attack is harmlessly deflected.

"Hands off the goods, love!" she chirps cheerily before swiftly lunging forward and cocking back her right fist to fire back with a heavy-duty haymaker toward the head!

COMBATSYS: Ayala blocks Coco's Fierce Punch.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Coco             1/-------/=======|=======\===----\1            Ayala

The fierce blow by Coco impacts with Ayala's fists as she brings them up close to try to block it, only seeming to manage this partially, the sound of skin and bones thudding together is audible. The cavewoman has to hold her head in pain afterwards, the growling eminating from her bared toothed visage getting louder.

Electrical energy begins to crackle around her form, briefly sheathing her in yellow/white light as she seems to become the recipient of some unseen lightning rod--before she lunges at Coco, attempting to rear up and latch on to her like some kind of huge blonde electric eel!

COMBATSYS: Coco dodges Ayala's Volt Bite ES.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Coco             1/-------/=======|=======\===----\1            Ayala

When Ayala starts to crackle with electricity, Coco's eyelashes flutter rapidly in disbelief.

"What in the bloody -"

She recoils, guard at the ready, but she knows instinctively that she doesn't want that live wire lady anywhere near her person. She crouches down, sucking in a deep breath through her nostrils, and leaps - launching herself up and over the lunging lightning rod and seeming to almost hang in the air as the laws of gravity are momentarily suspended. It's not the kind of athleticism that one would expect to see in a contest for such novice fighters, and it even seems to catch Coco herself off-guard. Attempting to make the most of the mysterious fluctuation as she starts to fall, she swings her long leg around, extending a wrapped foot to try and deliver a descending roundhouse to the back of the blonde battle-babe before she herself hits the ground!

COMBATSYS: Coco successfully hits Ayala with Diving Kick.
~~ Alluring Hit! ~~

Coco             1/-----==/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2            Ayala

"Get back here--nomph--Ayala chomp you!" the cavegirl seems quite agitated that the brawling fashionista has gotten away from her again--the electricity dissipating when the leg comes around and wallops her on the side of the head--blood droplets flying from where her teeth cut her lips. Ayala is bowled over and winds up on all fours again, pulling herself up after she rolls a bit, from the force of the blow, and pulls herself up to her feet. The side of her head is swelling up and she looks unsteady after that last one, but it's only seemingly tightened her resolve.

"Auff--Ayala no lose, Ayala keep fighting!" now glowing with chi, she leaps around the arena, until seh finds something she can bounce off of--in this case it's the side of a sign displaying an advertisement for one of the sponsors--coming down at high speed, her right fist extended in a thundering punch!

COMBATSYS: Coco blocks Ayala's Falcon Hit.

Coco             1/--=====/=======|>>>>---\-------\0            Ayala

"You're not furry or cute enough for me to let you chomp on me!" Coco reprimands Ayala as she gets her feet back under her, raising one knee and positioning her hands into a Muay Thai guard. "Not quite, anyhow."

The pixie-like purple-clad pugilist shifts her eyes to and fro in pursuit of the glowing grappler as she starts to leap around the fighting area. When the blonde bird of prey finally descends on her like a holy comet, she tightens her guard, knee extending as she covers her face both from the light and the impending impact. The phenomenal power of the punch knocks the inexperienced fighter her down, even as her defense holds, sending her sliding back on her bottom across the smooth surface beneath them.

"Coco doesn't like meteors," she says in a nearly-delirious groan before she forces herself to roll ass-over-elbows backward and up to her feet on the concrete. Drawing in a deep breath, she sets her features, shaking her arms out and raising them up once more as she resets her posture and mental state.

"It's okay, Coco. At least you're still pretty," she reassures herself, taking comfort in the lack of face shots she's sustained so far.

"Alright. Now it's time to party!"

With a renewed surge, she shifts forward, jabbing out with her left hand before throwing a quick cross punch with her right and following up with a knee strike to close what gap may stand between herself and Ayala. She raises her gloves to either side of her head, locking her elbows outward in what almost looks like a pose, but swiftly swinging one elbow after the other as she advances into Ayala while keeping her face protected. At that point she would aim to hook Ayala's neck and pull her down into a kickboxing clinch, delivering a series of surprisingly brutal knees toward Ayala's head.

If she can succeed in the combination, the tribal warrior would likely be left stunned, affording Coco a chance to turn to the crowd and raise her arms overhead, clasping her gloves and gyrating her hips before bringing her hands forward, then down to her waist, and finally jumping backward - aiming to smack her booty into Ayala's face and knock her down before she can recover!

COMBATSYS: Ayala blocks Coco's Full Moon Party.

Coco             0/-------/------=|>>>>>>>\-------\1            Ayala

"Ayala not want to make people not pretty--Ayala fight to get stronger--nrghh!" the smack of her fist into Coco's guard is like a firecracker going off, the cavewoman going tumbling as she rolls to a stop, picking herself up. Whew, that was a lot of energy! She is able to move with Coco as the punches continue to fly--moving with her to block them one at a time, but it's too much for her, and she's not able to keep up, almost devolving into wrestling as she struggles to avoid the facelock.

Ayala pulled herself away and blearily looks up in time to see Coco's behind careening into her--knocking her back, but able to roll out of the way before she is thrown to the ground by her. Clearly she was not expecting this--one never is.

"Ayala scared by fighting style..." she pants, looking to be quite tired now--especially after that last impact. She brings her hands up again and tries to bring them down on Coco, again--droplets of perspiration falling from her face.

COMBATSYS: Coco just-defends Ayala's Hammerblow!

Coco             0/-------/------=|=======\-------\1            Ayala

When Coco's backside doesn't manage to topple Ayala, the purple-haired fighter ends up stumbling back on the rebound, blue-grey eyes going large with surprise.

"Oh, that's supposed to work better," she complains as she pivots back to face Ayala, tugging at the seat of her shorts to correct some unseen source of discomfort.

"It's Muay Thai! Plus a little extra, just like me," she says as she brings her gloves back up to protect her midsection and head. When the overhead smash comes down on her once more, she brings her gloves together, catching the attack and pushing Ayala's hands away as she shifts back a step - then quickly bounces back in, throwing a lightning-swift series of left-handed jabs, before following up with a right cross, a left hook, then finally stepping into a right-handed uppercut! Despite the fact that her skin is also glistening with perspiration, she doesn't appear to be slowing down just yet - energized, perhaps, by the adrenalin rush brought on by the intense defense that's been forced from her so far.

COMBATSYS: Coco successfully hits Ayala with Screwdriver.

Coco             0/-------/----===|=======\====---\1            Ayala

"Oof, I see that," Ayala blinks before she's finally caught by the jabs, her blonde curls flying this way and that as she's battered around, getting punched across her face and front left and right. She's knocked back by the final uppercut, and this time it looks like she might be finally going down, but she immediately tries to rip into the fashionista with a series of kicks of her own--once, twice--and then finally ending in a drop kick--before she finally bounces to the floor, very much unconscious.


COMBATSYS: Ayala can no longer fight.

COMBATSYS: Coco blocks Ayala's Triple Kick.

Coco             0/-------/--=====|

Coco's combination lands flush, the ill-practiced but eager assault battering the blonde about with surprising speed. The pale party gal gawks when Ayala looks set to hit the deck, then more so when the warrior woman finds a last shot in the chamber and lashes out at her with a series of kicks! The first is caught by Coco's raised knee, the second sending a shudder into her frame through her gloves. The last sends Coco staggering backward as her hands find her face to save it from the fighter's final flight - before Ayala collapses at her feet, leaving the Muay Thai novice panting in a defensive guard for a few long seconds before lowering her raised foot to the floor.

She gasps as she realises Ayala's condition.

"Shut the front door! Are you unconscious? No way!"

Skin gleaming and mouth agape, the teenager blinks before turning her widened eyes to the nearest official. "Hey! Is she unconscious? Does that mean I win? Should someone get her an ice pack or something?"

She bends down close to Ayala, running her fingers through her purple hair to tuck it back behind her ear before commenting in a loud whisper, "You're totally selling this, babe. I mean, maybe overselling it a little, but I appreciate the effort. ...Hey, are you okay?"

COMBATSYS: Coco takes no action.

COMBATSYS: Coco has ended the fight here.
