SNF 2005.10 - Foxy vs Shingo

Description: Foxy and Shingo square off at the Southtown Airport. (Winner: Shingo)

This is an interesting stage chosen for this evening's SNF match-up. It ran into a few complications but it seems that the officials have finally worked everything out so that the fight is now a one-on-one match in the hallways of the Southtown airport terminal. Other than the fighters, everything else is set up. The lights, the camera, the crowd, and the medics on standby. All that is really needed now is just the action. In the background, an airplane lands on the runway.

Shingo watches the newly arrived aircraft and then turns back to face the audience with a grin and a thumbs-up. He's already warmed-up and all stretched. Just waiting for the go ahead to get this thing started. Remarking to himself how it would've been fun to fight alongside Benimaru in a simultaneous match. Ah well, next time for sure. The boy shifts his thinking to the match that's about to happen. When Foxy's ready, he grins and waves to her. Even wishing her luck and a grand fight.

Grand, indeed.
Having been somewhat absent from this particular stripe of combat for some time, Foxy isn't -entirely- thrilled to be making her reappearance in a manner that wasn't originally scheduled-- after all, she was interested in seeing how Kula might fight when alongside her as opposed to against her-- but this will simply have to do. Taking a firm hold of her rapier, her otherworldly attire in place, the Spaniard offers a brief nod to the boy in front of her.
"I'd hoped there might be some difference in opponents this time around," she says somewhat flatly, "But I suppose the lack of partners makes up for the lack of imagination." Never one to put a finer point on it, is she? Nonetheless, extending her swordhand to its usual position, her other arm extending for proper balance, the posture she tends towards is assumed with no further word, barring a brief nod to show her readiness to begin.

Normally Shingo would be all about the whole 'ladies first' deal but that doesn't seem to be the case tonight. She must be pretty confident in her abilities to allow the young man to start the fight off. Not a problem at all for Shingo. He nod to her and shrugs, "Yeah. Nothing we can do about it now so let's just enjoy it and have fun, all right?" The teen beams at the woman and shifts into his fighting stance right after adjusting the blue gloves on his hand one last time to make them fit snugly on his hands. They'll need to.

Giving Foxy one last nod Shingo then launches into his initial attack. The boy starts darting from left to right to close in the distance and to set himself up to hopefully catch her off-guard. "Body ga..." His right hand draws back and then swiftly swings out hooking at Foxy's body. She's a female. No face hitting for her from him. He's at least that much of a gentleman. Even if she starts stabbing him. "Amaize!" Hit or miss he's going to see if he can hop back out of range of her sword strikes if possible.

t Instantly bringing her rapier up for the sake of deflecting the worst of the impact, Foxy doesn't seem too phased by what comes in her direction, her expression failing to change throughout the whole of this. While her superior has occasionally taken notice of the boy, she, herself, has little to no interest in him or his decidedly normal skill. Whether or not he wins, that's not about to change.
And thus... the offered sentiment of 'having fun' is just as swiftly ignored, the Spaniard seeking to lash out in a swift, albeit somewhat light attack. Thrusting out her sword to try and catch the young man along his shoulder, his reaction, obviously, dictates outcome. Should it meet its intended mark, that sword is just as swiftly twisted around before getting yanked back out, the intent to impair the use of that arm-- though such attention to detail only seems to work on those of a lower calibre. But it's the thought that counts, isn't it?

It is a smart startegy. Incapcitate the opponent so that he is no longer able to execute effective attacks against her. Very smart indeed. He may have to start doing something along those lines himself. That is if most of his techniques didn't involve using a combination of his raw physical talent with momentum and knowing how and where to hit someone else. The blade stabbed forward strikes its mark but that's about all that happens. The twisting around of the rapier to rob him the use of his shoulder never comes. Well, it does. Just that he can still move the arm. Shingo finding a way to twist his body just at the right time to avoid taking the full effect as he hops away.

Putting a distance of about a metre between him and Foxy, Shingo hrms to himself and repeats something about staying cool. If he intends to win this fight he's got to fight smart and not hard. So let's see what he can do going by the information he learned from their last fight. Shingo narrows his eyes and looks over Foxy very carefully. Opting to wait and see what will come next as he slowly circles her.

Instead of taking the time to afford him the same scrutiny, Foxy merely continues. Her hand goes down to her belt, retrieving a small metal object from it as she favors him with a brief look. Tossing the object up into the air somewhat nonchalantly, both of her hands instantly go up to retrieve it, a quick motion of her limbs sending it sailing towards him at remarkable speeds. Whether or not he's able to deflect or get away from it is entirely up to him-- the result of it has yet to be seen.

The second it hits its intended target-- namely, the dead center of his abdomen-- the small object burrows underneath clothing and into skin, small wires shooting out in all directions to root itself along the epidermal layers before a brief, paralyzing shock of electricity races through the nearby tissue. Soon after is a concussive blast, the object erupting against his abdomen, the attack itself hopefully proving useful insofar as tearing down his equilibrium.

Nah. Shingo doesn't think he's going to deflect this attack. He has something else in mind for the metal object streaking in at him. Though Foxy would never know this unless he told her. Particularly because it doesn't pan out for him as he would've wanted. The woman might note something was amiss since the boy didn't even bother to move out of the way or toss up a guard to her attack. Only sign that he was going to do anything was a slight smile forming on his lips. A smile that momentarily fades as he grimaces from the results of the projectile finding its way into his system. Wobble. He'll live.

"SHINGO KIIIIIICKU!" The loud cry of his signature and by far favourite technique in his entire repertoire. This causes a few cheers from the watching crowd. It's basically a plain looking version of an enzuigiri kick but hey, they're fans of Mister Yabuki. Of course they're going to cheer him on as he jumps at Foxy and brings his leg down like a hatchet towards her trapezius. Remember, she's a woman. He's going to do his best to avoid her head and face unless she does something silly like walk into it.

In spite of her attempts to get out of the way, the kick catches her full on, throwing her backwards with what seems like far less effort than need be. While there's no audible grunt or -show- of pain in accordance to what she's just been levelled with, Foxy takes a moment or two before rolling to her side and back up to her feet, her rapier still in hand. No time to ready herself for that one, really-- all she can do is hope her speed is a bit more on the level throughout the remainder of the fight.
Extending her sword again, she opts for something a bit different this time around. Closing the distance between them as swiftly as possible, she ducks down once she's within range only seconds before snapping right back up in a quick, albeit oddly languid circular motion, the sharpened edge of the sword intent on catching the boy not once, but twice across his already damaged abdomen and further up along his sternum. Withdrawing from the attack the moment that it's finished, she eases back into her usual stance-- assuming she gets away with it without issue.

Sorry Foxy. Shingo does have an issue to bring up with you regarding getting sliced twice by the fencing weapon. Well, an issue to bring up and an elbow to bring down. Because of his lack of experience of fighting with this woman Shingo doesn't know exactly what to expect next but he has an idea given her fighting style. This alone helps him prepare for her retaliation attack to his Shingo Kick. As she ducks in, Shingo grants her not the liberty to do as she wants and slams his elbow down and hard more or less along the same spot the kick struck her before. "Hiji Otoshi!" The terminal floor is carpetted, but the force at which he brings her down can be heard by all. The sound is probably just for show though. He hops back again to give her some room to get up.

This time, his efforts are rewarded with a sharp breath from the woman, the force of the blow apparently staggering her moreso than most opponents would be. Failing to catch herself with either of arms thanks to the quick nature in which the attack was delivered, Foxy is left with very few options-- except, of course, the more drastic ones. Given his strengths paralelling her weaknesses... making at least a dent wouldn't be such a bad idea.
Edging back a few paces and getting to her feet as she's afforded some room, the eccentrically attired doctor doesn't wait before outright launching herself into the air. What comes next is a downward slice which... seems to hit nothing in particular, though from it comes a sharp arc of silver threatening to barrel into her opponent.

The second the sliver of energy hits the ground, there's a rumble underfoot-- and a sudden, arcing array of bright blue energy coming up from behind the boy to slam into him with far more force than she's usually able to muster. As the energy abates, Foxy lands, taking a couple steps back in spite of the momentum doing some fair damage to her defensive capabilities.

Ung. There goes another one of his failed tactics. They just don't seem to be working out for him tonight. The burst of blue energy that comes from the silver light striking the ground catches him totally just as Foxy intended to. Again there is no indication on the boy's part to get out of the way. It even looks like that he was about to charging right into it. But that couldn't be right. He's obviously not that crazy, right? Right. His face contorts in grimace from the pain and being knocked forward with a stagger.

Hrm. Ok. Time to rethink his strategies again. What else can he do? Shingo pushes up to his feet and turns to face Foxy with a friendly grin despite the damage she has inflicted on him thus far, "You're really good, miss." A compliment and a statement of fact from his perception. "I'd better watch myself. Things can only get more interesting." He hehs and grins again. Once more he starts to carefully move to the side refusing to take his eyes off her. Unlike certain other fighters, he's not checking her out.

Not seeming in any way moved by the show of appreciation insofar as her abilities go, Foxy merely nods by way of accepting the compliment, reassuming her stance, though it's a bit more loose than it was before. The pain that's going through her is indication enough that she needs to get her bearings straight-- and that this fight is, indeed, far from over.
"One never knows in the midst of a fray," she says simply, her own gaze sizing him up in much the same way he's affording her. "The tables could turn in a heartbeat; as could the prospective victor." As it is, it would appear as though they're both on rather... even ground for how fast this fight has gone.

"True. Like I said. They can only get more interesting from this part on," Shingo hehs at the cloner's words. In his mind they're both agreeing that this fight can still go either way depending on how they each choose to handle situations as they come. The first situation Shingo has to deal with is Foxy choosing not to attack him while she had the chance. This causes him to blink. Oh well. Her loss. He isn't going to complain to a potentially free hit. "All right then! Get ready!" Shingo stops moving and tightens his fists as he stares down Foxy with a grin.

That's the only warning she gets from the boy before he sprints forward in what seems to be a sudden burst of energy that he summed up from inside himself. He moves surprisingly fast despite his stomach injury. It's obvious it hurts as he breathes hard and winces with each step. "Burning...." Shingo ducks low. Then leaps high into the air just short of hitting his head on the roof. All this time his fist held in a ready position of about to punch Foxy the heck out. The attack from the lad doesn't come while he's in the air either. Only when he lands and sidesteps to her left is when the hook punch aimed at her body rockets outward toward her, "SHINGOOOOOOOOOOO!" If the first punch connects with the woman, it is followed up by a repeated flurry of five more similar attacks ranging from another hook punch, two downward smashes and an uppercut that instantly goes into a devastating shoulder tackle into her gut to send her flying in a direction that's neither toward the glass panes of the windows or into the innocent bystanders of the crowd. He holds the position for a brief moment and watches to see if she's going to get back up to continue.

When the attack lands-- needless to say, it -hurts-. In spite of all attempts to do otherwise, the power behind it combined with the momentum put into it are not only enough to burn through Foxy's defenses, but throw her immediately to the ground. Skidding to a dead halt no less than five feet away from where she hit the ground... it appears as though she's not liable to be getting back up anytime soon. Whatever plan she had going for her is eradicated-- and she can see exactly where the foible was made.
Though in this instance, it's a tough call.
Nothing she didn't expect, though.
Not that expectation is coming into play in the here and now-- with little to no energy to so much as lift a finger, there's no 'last attack' coming in. Simply an attempt to catch her breath, and little more.

Shingo straightens up when it is more than clear that Foxy won't be getting back up anytime soon to continue this fight. The boy then leans over with his hands on his thighs taking a few deep breaths and standing straight again with a wide grin. He nods to the fallen Foxy and looks around to the crowd shooting a fist straight up into the air, "I...did it!" The resounding cheers from his fans and those who enjoyed the fight echo through the terminal as the medics on stand-by move to tend to Foxy and Shingo. Mostly the former since the latter seems to still be able to fight on.

"Thanks for the good match, Miss Foxy." Shingo remarks to the woman unsure if she can hear him or not and gives her a thumbs-up even if she can't see that either. Now it's on to getting patched up to meet and greet his fans and anyone else who wants to meet him or get his autograph and what not.
