SNF 2005.10 - May Lee vs Karin

Description: Justice fighter May Lee takes on Capitalism Fighter Karin Kanzuki atop a moving double-decker bus as it zooms through Metro's streets. Because, you know, fighting on top of a moving vehicle worked so well for Karin last time she tried it. (Winner: May Lee)

Huge buses were so cool, weren't they?
In any case, on the road that skirts the beach, there stood one of those double-decker buses that were becoming all the rage lately, the bus painted in a bright cherry red color.

And if one was watching the bus, they would see flashes of movement through the windows on the top floor of the buses. Glimpses of one Lee Jin Ju pacing back and forth in the aisle, waiting for the right time. And soon enough, that right time comes! Dashing to a window on the side, May Lee throws that window open, and literally /leaps/ out of the bus, although she twists herself around in mid-air, and catches the edge of the buses roof just in time.

Yanking up with her arms, May Lee then flips herself unto the roof of the bus, shouting, "JUUUUUSTICE!" all throughout the flip. And once her feet find the roof of the bus, she whirls around, eyes searching for Karin. Had her opponent arrived yet? Was she already there? These were the burning questions May Lee was trying to find a answer to.

Now there's a good question. Where IS Karin? It's not like there's all that many places to hide on a double-decker bus, although with the camera crews riding alongside she might be stowed away with one of them. And yet she isn't there...
It's been a long time since Karin did one of her massively overblown entrances, and she's long overdue for one too. Soon, May Lee can hear the sound of an approaching helicopter zooming in overhead, and the noise is deafening as it hovers over the bus, matching velocity long enough for Karin to leap out of the cargo door, landing catlike on the top of the bus and flipping some curls over her shoulder while the helicopter flies off. AND THE CROWD GOES WILD.
"Yes, yes, justice," Karin responds, bemused, as she falls into a fighting stance. "Nobody to get in the way this time. Are you ready, May Lee?"

Now, if you were going to do a overblown enterance, in the (very) humble opinion of May Lee, arriving via helicopter was the way to do it! Along with the crowd going wild? Was May Lee. She'll answer Karin's question in a moment~! Bouncing from foot to foot, May Lee had her right arm lifted, pointing at her opponent as she beams a grin towards her. "That. Was..." A bigger bounce. "AWESOME!" May Lee says, but then seems to settle down into her normal stance, the grin the young woman was favoring Karin with growing.
Moving slowly, and perhaps a touch dramatically, May lifts her hands up to the goggles she was wearing, and then, with a sudden movement, snaps them down over her eyes. "YES! I'm READY if you are, Karin!" There was that booming falsely deep voice of hers again, the Korean taking a long step forward with her right foot then, as she leans her torso back, her smile turning a touch smug as she then allows her arms to dangle at her sides. Except for her right arm. That was uplifted to point towards Karin, palm facing the sky... at least until she curls her fingers in a 'bring it' gesture.

COMBATSYS: MayLee focuses on her next action.

With a grin, the blonde gives her Korean opponent a nod. "Well, glad you approve. Let's give the people a good show." Flexing her fingers a little, Karin shifts in her stance for a moment, not attacking immediately; rather, she's gauging the ebb and flow of the bus' movement, trying to keep her footing proper and make sure she has it all down. Of course, it was just a few weeks ago in this very city that Karin was fighting for Metro's very fate atop a pair of moving trucks.
It is when the bus passes underneath a traffic light that, suddenly, Karin makes her move. Leaping up, the blonde snags it in midair and, twirling under it Tarzan-style, launches herself through the air at May Lee, hoping to land a momentum-fueled flying kick right in her Justice-loving tummy. It's on!

Luckily for May Lee, her reflexes were on the ball tonight! As the swinging Karin approaches, the dynamic Korean takes a long step backwards, slapping a stiffly-held arm at Karin's legs as she approaches, trying to knock the girl off course. It works. Sorta. Instead of May Lee's gut of Justice! being the target for the blow, Karin gets to strike the side of Justice!. Which hurts like a sonofagun anyways, but thems the breaks.

"Woo! Good blow! ARE you PREPARED for MINE, KARIN?!" May Lee says, already dropping her right fist down to her side, electric chi playing over it. Normally, she would launch herself at her opponent at about this time, but when one was on a double decker bus... one did not want to launch themselves off of the bus. So! May Lee steps forward, pirouettes on one foot, and after about the third spin, tries to slam that sparking fist into Karin's gut. Turnabout is fair play after all, right?

COMBATSYS: Karin endures MayLee's May Lee- Lightning Blow!.

At first it would appear the answer to May Lee's question is: No, I'm not ready, can I have five minutes? Landing after her acrobatic attempt to put May Lee onto the pavement (as it were), Karin doesn't have much time nor space to get out of the way of the incoming chi fist. So she doesn't bother. May Lee connects solidly, making Karin grit her teeth from the pain and shock. "Not quite, but as much as I can be," she retorts.
The only good side to this? Karin's got May Lee right where she wants her. Hoping to use their proximity to her advantage, Karin decides to give her next attack no windup; instead she simply makes a shotei form with her right hand and drives it forward into May Lee's torso, hoping to use the strength of the blow to knock her back a few feet. And if that means off the bus, well... May Lee's a spry girl. She can take it.

MayLee           0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0            Karin

May Lee was a spry girl indeed! And a agile little thing when she needed to be, evidently. Karin's incoming blow was fast, but yet! May Lee jerks her torso (in a motion that can't really be called graceful. At all.) out of the way of the torso punch, just barely dodging out of the way of the punch. Taking a long step back, then a leap backwards, May Lee lands on the bus roof once more, her feet landing upon the opposite end of the bus, the roof protesting that movement with a squeal.

"ALRIGHT!" May Lee says. She had a quota of Justice! poses to fufill, and dang if she wasn't gonna fill 'em! "I AM LEE JIN JU!" she cries out, setting her feet at a little past shoulder-length, throwing a twist into her hips, and holding out both hands towards Karin, the palms of her open hands pointing towards Miss Kanzuki. "More commonly known as MAY LEE!" she cries, curling both of her hands into fists, and then taking a half-step towards Karin, throwing a double-punch through the air. "Do NOT go EASY on ME, for IIIII will /NOT/ go EASY ON YOU!" And with that, May draws both her fists back unto herself, and squares her stance, chi wind already beginning to rustle her clothing, (adding on to the rustling that was already going on with the bus driving). "HAAAAAAA!" Ooo, lookit. They were passing a park now!

COMBATSYS: MayLee gathers her will.

Uh... alright then. Karin looks vaguely annoyed that her risky blow didn't pay off, but that is the way of things in the fighting world. "I take every fight I'm in seriously!" she throws back, weighing her options. In an ideal world, perhaps a piece of falling orbital debris left over from Mir would clock May Lee in the head during this, her most Kamen Ridery of moments. Unfortunately Karin lacks power over space and time, and this does not occur.
Instead, the blonde simply glances around, espying a particularly heavy briefcase, which she nudges with her toe long enough to soccer-kick it into midair. "I'm not usually a fan of improvised weapon fighting," she says with a grin, before lashing out another palm strike and driving the luggage through the air like a volleyball serve right at May Lee's head (LURV 4 NATSU). "But what the hey, it's national television."

Fortunately. May Lee didn't want to get nailed with a piece from a space station at this point in time. Unfortunately for her.. that particular piece of punch-propelled luggage was just about as bad. "I WILL...!" May Lee begins, before releasing a very unheroic, "...eep!" and trying to bring her crossed forearms up, to ward off the luggage. That didn't quite work, she's afraid. The luggage strikes her in the head and rebounds upwards, drawing a 'erk' noise from her as she takes a step back, (precariously close to the edge of the bus, the Korean flapping her arms madly.

Two can play at that game, oho! "Oh ho ho!" May Lee says, righting herself as the luggage begins to fall once more. Sidestepping a bit so that she can catch up with the way it was falling, the Korean girl whirls around, delivering a roundhouse kick to the suitcase, and sending it /riiiiight/ back. How's them apples, huh?

Unfortunately, when it comes to luggage hockey, Karin appears to have the home field advantage. Or, uh, something. Shut up, this is my second fight in a row. As the suitcase comes flying at her the blonde makes a seemingly effortless sidestep that lets the thing fly right by her and... off into the Metro streets. Oh dear, looks like this was an airport shuttle. Look at all that lingerie...
"That was close. Nice shot!" Karin compliments, getting back into stance. Of course, now she seems stymied as for what to do. Narrowing her brow in concentration, she suddenly blinks, then blurs into movement. Running toward, and then PAST May Lee, snagging the guardrail and then, uh... leaping off the bus. Or so it would seem. Suddenly, she swings herself back up, appearing above May Lee and hoping to use her sudden shift in momentum to drive the Taekwondo fighter right into the roof of the bus in an improvised aerial takedown.

MayLee           1/---====/=======|===----\-------\0            Karin

"Uh... oops?" May Lee says in regards to the fallen luggage, but there would be time to deal with that later! At the moment, she had... well... a flying Karin to deal with. Thankfully, May Lee was up to the challenge! Or... not. Twisting around as Karin leaps off the bus, May Lee gasps, and then takes a dashing step towards the edge of the bus... at least until Karin reappears! May Lee begins to make the motion of countering that little attack, but instead gets hammered into the roof of the bus below her. Yow. "Alright, alright... I'm not... I'm not done yet~!." May Lee says shakily, as she rises slowly to her feet atop the bus once more. Ooo, that looked like a neat shop that they were passing. She'd have to visit. Later.

Rebounding with a little forward somersault to face off with May Lee from the opposite side of the bus' roof. Rather than press the attack, the blonde simply gives May Lee time to recover, watching her opponent intently. "Using your surroundings to fight is a specialty of the Kanzuki school," she mini-boasts, setting herself for what is sure to be one of May Lee's better attacks to come. "But I know you're not through yet. Show me what you've got!"

COMBATSYS: Karin focuses on her next action.

And May Lee responds to that urging with one of her trademark (well, almost a trademark) bright grins. "All right! You ready then?!" May Lee asks, taking a long step forward towards Karin, the girl's grin slipping as a look of concentration begins to settle upon her features...

And then May Lee hops up in front of Karin, drawing her knees up to her chest as that bright grin begins to make it's way back unto her lips again, and then when May's feet are near the level of Karin's face? May would kick both feet out as hard as she can, hoping to strike Karin's face with a double-kick that she would backflip away from the Kanzuki heir using the momentum of. Hoping, mind. Karin /was/ tricksy.

Tricksy? Yes. Immune to the freakin' topheavy CSYS? No sir. Of course, it's sort of bad form to kick someone in the FACE, but perhaps because both May Lee and Karin are women it's okay. Still, the blonde goes reeling back to the guardrail from that blow, which hurt like heck; Karin had hoped to catch and redirect May Lee's momentum but was just a little slow. A nice little line of red trickles down the blonde's face, though she pays it not much mind, dabbing a bit with her armguard but getting back into stance immediately. "So much for justice, I suppose." Now it's just a street brawl.

So much for Justice!? That thought struck May Lee as... well... abhorrent. Landing from her backflip in a deep, frog-like crouch, May Lee couldn't stop her mouth from hanging open as she gapes at Karin. "So much for...?" May Lee says, giving her head a shake. Biting on her lower lip, May Lee glances back up towards Karin, the Korean still within her crouch. To continue fighting at her fullest, or back off a bit? Well, May Lee had already said that she would give this her all! Anything less would be a insult. She could still warn first, though! "Get ready!" she says, leaping up from her crouch towards Karin's face, the girl lashing out one foot as she tries for a deceptively simple jumpkick...

MayLee           0/-------/-----==|=======\==-----\1            Karin

...but the jumpkick wouldn't be the end of it. The jumpkick catches Karin beneath the chin, but before anything dangerous, like flying off of the side of the bus could happen... May Lee lashes out her hands, and grabs Karin, twisting around midair to throw her back on top of the bus. Landing on the guardrail herself, May Lee launches herself into the air again, landing in a crouch atop Karin's body. Another leap up into the air, and May Lee pulls her hands behind her head, a diffuse glow gathering between her hands, before May thrusts her hands downwards, shooting a invisible slash of wind chi down at Karin. And that would be all.

The entire combination is highly effective. At the end Karin is definitely hurting like hell; she had hoped to give catching May Lee's foot one more try, but unfortunately it wasn't in the cards, mostly because Karin sucks. However, throughout the entire beatdown process Karin at least has the energy to twist her body just so, or force her own chi outward to protect her, so that what would otherwise have been a ridiculously devastating blow is instead just turned into a can and a half of whupass. Forcing herself standing, the blonde rubs her bruised, bleeding face and sighs. "I need to stop making a fool of myself on national television," she mutters.

And when May Lee lands, it is not without any concern in her eyes. There was that light feeling of elation that her attack hit, and hit well, but... May Lee takes a few steps backwards, settling into a traditional Tae Kwan Do stance. "You okay, Karin?" May Lee asks, the girl pausing for a few moments, and allowing Karin to gather her wits whilst May Lee watches her closely. Karin did the same for her recently, after all.

COMBATSYS: MayLee focuses on her next action.

"Perfectly fine," the blonde lies, gathering herself. Perhaps she needs to go to the mountains and wrestle bears or something. She and Marco Rodriguez can make a day of it. "I'm not through yet." Of course, it's best if you follow that line with an attack, which Karin doesn't... at least, not as yet. Taking a deep breath, she centers herself, trying to focus. And then, another overhead hanging traffic light comes and she takes her opening. As it approaches the blonde suddenly dashes forward, leaping high up and then landing *on* the narrow pole, using it as a springboard to jump even higher. Mentally working through angles of descent as fast as possible, Karin puts her only real weapon -- her brain -- to work, and plunges downward at May Lee, aiming what appears to be a diving kick at the girl's shoulder. "Kanzuki revised style..." And then comes the landing. If she hits, the blonde suddenly does a tucking somersault in midair, using May Lee as a springboard and hammering a massive, centripetally-powered two-fisted hammerblow right at May Lee's clavicle. "Kou'ou Ken!"

Instead of the kick landing, Karin's rapid descending kick is met by a upwards one of May Lee's own, the girl hammering her foot into the underside of Karin's chin, and sending her skyward. "YA!" she cries, and as Karin falls down, May Lee intercepts the falling kick with a rising sort of kick, juggling her back up into the air. And then when Karin comes down again, May Lee spins around, delivering a final roundhouse sort of kick to Karin, and likely sending her skidding across the bus.

Not just across the bus, but rather, right *off* the bus. That attack was all Karin had in her; she's unconscious before she even hits the ground, which is good, because she isn't awake to feel herself pinballing off car roofs and then rolling to a KOed stop off on a sidewalk somewhere. Of course, not that May knows this, as the bus is speeding onward. Presumably the SNF committee has some sort of contingency plan in place to keep the blonde heiress from, you know. Dying. She's tough, anyway. The announcer proclaims May Lee the winner, and that appears to be all for this particular SNF bout. Good fight, good night.
