Jiro             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0          Aislinn

Saturday Night Fights--back for the first time since Aislinn's introduction the world. A honored and honorable tradition, for some time it took a back seat to the Neo League--but now, with the League excitement dying down, Geese Howard saw fit to bring back the original continuous ranking fights. And naturally, Aislinn found herself signed up for it. Had she not been signed up by NESTS, she likely would have done so on her own initiative... so the results would have been the same.

When she was informed of her opponent, she gave only a slight 'tch'--and when she read the 'rules' behind this bout, she actually had occasion to smile, if only faintly and briefly. And so... here she is, on-stage at the Seijyun Theater... won't the school attendants be mad if things get broken.

She stands off to stage left, the theatre packed not with play-watchers but with fight-watchers, the orchestra pit empty, and the stage lit with a pair of spotlights, whose handlers have the unenviable task of following the two fighters in their bout. Aislinn waits patiently, her attention focused wholly on the fight to come.

This is not just another fight.
This is a Saturday Night Fight. It has been a long time since Jiro had participated in the events. To be honest, Jiro was actually glad that the entertainment was brought back up. But Jiro cannot help but feel that this is like WWE. It's rather sad in a way, but at the same time...
The Stray Dog looks a little amused as he pases by the students. Dressed in his sleeveless shirt and black cargo pants, the Stray Dog looks at the people.... cheering for him. Well, it was said that Jiro had a nice amount of fans from Seijyun High. For the first time, Jiro gives a goofy grin.
Still, it felt odd.
With Aislinn making her way to the middle, the Jiro comes to a complete stop. He just looks at her for a moment.
Then he steps forward with his right foot and he extends his right fist in a guarding position.
Time to focus on the fight now.

The dog is ready. For better or worse, that means Aislinn also has to be ready. The cheers are for Jiro? That doesn't matter to her. She keeps her eyes on the young man, watching him strut... watching him grin. He is silly, plain and simple. It will be interesting to see how this fight comes off; they were pretty evenly matched, last fight, but who knows...?

There is no announcer this time; there is no color commentary. But someone.. either someone from Seijyun or someone from the company behind the SNF... has chosen to set this fight to bombastic, movie-score style music. And the first thunderous chords strike the opening note, sound cascading around the fighters and their chosen arena. And yet... Aislinn doesn't make a move; she stands there. Her eyes focused on Jiro, her expression intense. Despite all that... it's obvious to those with trained eyes that she recognizes the exact instant that the match started.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn focuses on her next action.

Jiro             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0          Aislinn

With the music setting in, the Stray Dog is getting ready for the beat... He's getting his -own- rhythm straightened up. However, at the same time, he has to have it synch with the music. So, as the beat starts to pick up, so does Jiro.
The Stray Dog immediately moves towards Aislinn, drawing himself forward to meet with her in close-ranged combat. First, he start off with a right jab towards her face, then he draws his left fist out at her stomach. At the same time, the left foot steps over as he twists his weight around for the real strike...
... Which is a hook kick aiming towards her face quickly.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn endures Jiro's Light Kick.

Jiro             0/-------/-------|==-----\-------\0          Aislinn

So Jiro wishes to close in, does he? That's fine with Aislinn; she's calculating odds and percentages even as the boy draws his fist back. She leans away from the right jab, slips the left body blow... then straightens slightly, her knees bending. And she takes the hook kick right in the face--but she bends with it, turns with it. Does it hurt? Sure, inasmuch as Aislinn recognizes the concept of pain.

With the added momentum, Aislinn steps in a bit of a circle, then hops forward, kicking out with a left-footed crescent kick aimed for Jiro's head; as she lands, she pushes off again, in less than a split-second, and then her left foot is arcing out again, heel first, for the other side of Jiro's head, leaving Aislinn standing pretty much where she was after Jiro attacked. It is a technique that is surprisingly graceful, almost balletic in nature.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn successfully hits Jiro with Scythe Kicks.

Jiro             0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0          Aislinn

With the fist drawing straight towards Aislinn's face, the Stray Dog is merely snorting after he manageso send her a message of pain. However, it is a little surprising that she steps into circle with the momentum. The left foot strikes him across the head , which sends his head sprawling over towards the ground.
Then, he is strucked right on the other side of the head with the next kick. It sends him on his face, but he immediately rolls away from the further impact of being defenseless.
A grunt escapes as he moves back up, then he looks over towards Aislinn. "Heh..." He draws both of his hands in the air, channeling for his chi to erupt within his hands. Narrowing his eyes, he brings forth the white chi to burn, then he tosses them forward with his arms crossed.
The flames come together once they near Aislinn, then they converge in an explosion of a white, fiery cross.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Aislinn with Riot Cross.
- Power hit! -

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
Jiro             0/-------/---====|======-\-------\0          Aislinn

This is a new one; Aislinn decides to test the strength of Jiro's chi... not by countering or overcoming the projectile, but by letting it strike her upraised arms and aura. Unfortunately, this turns out to be a bad proposition for her. Blown backwards, she flips in midair, landing on the stage and immediately pushing off into another backflip, dusting off her forearms; she raises her head, keeping it slightly inclined... and waits, once again inviting Jiro to take the initiative, as it were. Perhaps it is a mistake; it's almost certain Jiro is physically stronger than she is. But she is not interested in playing -his- game; she is interested in doing what she feels is best.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn gains composure.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////       ]
Jiro             0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0          Aislinn

The Stray Dog immediately sprints towards Aislinn the moment the Riot Cross was thrown towards her way. He winds his fist back, grinning fangily while he prepares to close in with something.
While she is backflipping to a distance and trying togain herself, the Stray Dog is immediately somersaulting into the air, landing...
...behind Aislinn.
Once he appears behind the young woman, the Stray Dog immediately swings his right foot over her ankle, aiming to trip her on the ground, butt first.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Aislinn with Quick Throw.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Jiro             0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\1          Aislinn

Okay, now it's starting to get irritating; Aislinn is, quite unceremoniously, dumped on her butt. It isn't something she enjoys. And, to tell the truth, Jiro's smirking face doesn't make it any easier to take. Still... one has to do what one can. She may go down this fight, but she will do everything in her power to -not- make it easy. As soon as she lands, she's slapping her hands on the ground, kicking upwards for Jiro's chin as she rises back to a vertical position; it's one part handstand, one part kick, and one part preparation for flipping back to her feet, whether she makes contact with Jiro or not.

COMBATSYS: Jiro fails to counter Light Kick from Aislinn with Bull Fist.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Jiro             0/-------/-======|=======\-------\1          Aislinn

To be honest, Jiro is a little disappointed with the match up. He was hoping that Aislinn would give him more of a challenge. The Stray Dog grunts a little after watching her fall. "Come on, you can do better than that." He lifts an eyebrow at the woman, waiting for her to show him what she can do.
And when she is scoming forward with an upward kick towards his chin, the young man immediately winds his fist back, until he's caught within the trajectory of the foot. It sends him flying across the ground, then he immediately kicks his feet into the air, getting back into his fighting stance.
"Good. Let's go!"

Landing from her little gymnast's-flip kick, Aislinn just turns her cold, calculating gaze on Jiro; she holds her arms out slightly, then tucks them in close, crackling, red-white electricity traveling up and down her limbs and body, sparking and arcing around her, the energies building up around and inside her, tensing her muscles, washing away fatigue, and filling her with energy. She has been fighting defensively most of this fight--for good or for worse--and she doesn't seem inclined to break out of that style just yet. Though she does little to taunt Jiro, her body is inclined forward, tilted slightly, as if to give the impression she would very much be saying 'bring it on'...

Needless to say, she was disappointed with the matchup as well.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn gathers her will.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Jiro             0/-------/-======|=======\====---\1          Aislinn

Hrm, how to go about this? Well, the Stray Dog is rather amused, believe it or not. He is going to have to take things a little more interesting per se.
Jiro is still all for charging in and letting Aislinn play defense, but he is going to have some fun with it, even if this will possibly hurt him in the long run. Tightening his fists together, the Stray Dog gathers his chi. With the raw power emitting from his grasp, he immediately launches his right foot outward into a dash.
He launches off of the ground, winding his fist back. His chi gathers and roars into life, before it loses its white color and the form becomes a blur.
His fist extends out, preparing to strike Aislinn. ...Should she take the incoming blow, an explosion will occur from the impact.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn fails to interrupt Exploder Knuckle from Jiro with Shining Rondo.
- Power hit! -

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0          Aislinn

Aislinn does something which most would consider to be very much like suicide--she steps into the incoming attack, her hands flaring with power... and yet, though it -is- apparent suicide, the explosion ripping her clear of the area, it wasn't intended that way. Still, she lands hard as well, putting a dent into the floor, and when she does rise... it's as a very shaky fighter. Still, back bent, legs weak, arms shaky... she remains defiant to the end.

After driving the fist out towards Aislinn, the Stray Dog is standing back in place, straightening himself out to see her rise. That earns a smile. Jiro is actually glad that she is trying to get back to a moving state.
Of course, Jiro stops to hear his fans call out for a special attack. Lifting an eyebrow, Jiro looks at the girls cheering. "...Buh...?" Yeah, Jiro -still- can't believe that he has fans. They want to see something impressive, they want to see some flair!
So, the Stray Dog is approaching Aislinn, offering to 'help' her up by reaching over towards her collar with his left foot aiming towards her stomach to bend her back down for a set up...

COMBATSYS: Aislinn dodges Jiro's Strong Throw.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0          Aislinn

Quite literally, Aislinn slaps Jiro's reaching hand away. Both because she is mobile and in -no- need of someone like him to help her... and because she can tell that he intends nothing less than to do something dishonorable. However, she's not about to risk serious injury to find out what that was.

Aislinn hops backwards, then leaps up... into the rafters? Almost! She grabs something up there, and tugs--and as she's coming down, at the end of a large rope, at the same time, a 30 pound counterweight is dropping... right for Jiro's head. It would be a sneak attack, except the pulley and rope are making a pretty awful zipping noise.

COMBATSYS: Jiro dodges Aislinn's Large Thrown Object.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0          Aislinn

Damnit! There is nothing more than an annoyed grunt from the Stray Dog as she prevents him from making his home mark of putting her in the Stunner. He swings his fist downward with a snap of his fingers. "Damn!" There is much disappointment from theyoung man.
The Stray Dog notices he taking off into the air. "Buh...?" He looks up, then he sees that the woman is coming down at the endof the large rope.
With the counterweight dropping down, Jiro is preparing to get away from the incoming collision from bashing him in the head in the most painful way.
He waits for her tome down.... then he launches off towards her direction, then he leaps from the ground, into the air, with his left arm extended out.
It's the Ultimate Move!
Jiro's Clothesline!
In slow motion...
Pictures are snapped... Lights are flaring...
... As Jiro makes the flying clothesline.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn dodges Jiro's Strong Punch.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0          Aislinn

Fortunately, the only thing Jiro is clotheslining is the nearest mannequin; Aislinn doesn't even think for a moment before literally taking four steps forward and letting Jiro's 'power clothesline' miss completely. As Jiro's back is turned because of the nature of Aislinn's avoidance, rather than do what she would consider the 'best' plan of action and attack him, she takes another quick breather, waiting for her opponent to rise once more... treating the constraints of the 'school rules' of this SNF as very serious things.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn gains composure.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|===----\-------\0          Aislinn

Sigh.. The Stray Dog is grumbling under his breath as the clothesline misses its mark. But no matter, he'll just have to go for something else. As he does pass by Aislinn, he has to keep her from making her getting too far in recomposing herself for the fight.
So, with Jiro turning around to face Aislinn, the young man immediately sprints her way, aiming to strike her right in the rib in a 'drive-by' run.
With his fist.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn blocks Jiro's Quick Punch.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////                   ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0          Aislinn

This time, Aislinn's ready, the rib-aimed fist meeting an open palm, rather than an open flank. Aislinn turns to follow the running young man, crouching down; as she comes up pitching a golf ball at Jiro's side, probably a prop left over from one of Seijyun's last productions.

The aim of the thrown ball isn't to do damage, necessarily--it's to disrupt Jiro's flow and break up his attack pattern. Aislinn is, as she well knows, at the losing end of this fight. But she can't just give up. She wouldn't be able to live with herself afterwards.

COMBATSYS: Jiro dodges Aislinn's Thrown Object.

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////                   ]
Jiro             1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0          Aislinn

With the palm meeting the fist, Jiro grins once more, then he sees the golf ball coming towards his head. He immediately spins around to catch the ball, then he tosses it into the air for the folks of Seijyun to catch.
And then... the music suddenly starts to change. It is changing from the die-hard action-packed movie scenes to a more, operaish type song. Or something more of a musical.
"... Oh -HELL- no." Jiro roars out, staring at the person in charge of the music production. "..."
Of course, the students and all that are watching are chanting for Jiro to do it. The pressure! ... The pressure! Oh god.
Well, he looked like a reject from the Queer Eye from the Straight Guy before... eh, why not?
Clearing his throat, as awkward as it seems, he points a finger towards Aislinn.

o/` That did not stop me, you surely failed. o/`
o/` I'll give you a mo-men-to to remember me by! o/`

Jiro immediately takes off of the ground, then he spins around with his right foot aiming towards Aislinn's cheek.
Also, part of Jiro feels dirty inside for singing.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Aislinn with Light Kick.

Jiro             1/------=/=======|=======\-------\0          Aislinn

*crack* The kick catches Aislinn right across the cheek, and she staggers; the shame that burns inside her isn't enough to keep her standing, not this time... at least, not for a protracted fight. But she might as well attempt -something-. Staggering back, she doesn't have the strength to attack properly; she throws her arms up over her head, clasping them, the last of her determination and her energies formed into a four foot long, blazing blade of chi, one which she attempts to bring right down on Jiro's head. But it is a stumbling, faltering attack, and that action will surely bring her to her knees.

COMBATSYS: Aislinn can no longer fight.

COMBATSYS: Jiro endures Aislinn's Lightning Blade.

[               \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  <
Jiro             1/---====/=======|

After the foot sends Aislinn flying back, the Stray Dog immediately sprints forward to meet with Aislinn. He decides to go for the more direct approach. What does he plan to do?
No one knows.
But while she forms the lightning blade, the Stray Dog immediately draws his chi around his body. And when he swoops upward, he draws his body forward, as if he is going to do something.
But he does nothing, but accept the strike, leaning forward to try to test his own strength.
While his posture twitches, and the damage is there, he doesn't falter back. Instead, he continues forward until Aislinn falls on her knees.
Hrmph. Still not enough, damnit. He'll just have to work harder to dull the pain.
Nevertheless, Jiro does get an applause.
Now there is something that Jiro debates over.
"Regardless of first impressions..." Jiro extends his right hand towards her. "Good fight." No tricks behind it.
"But something tells me that you'll hold a grudge and will punt it away out of pride. Something I used to do." Low opinion of her, but he's honest about it.

Damage estimates, power reserves, all that floods Ai's vision for a brief moment. Then she looks up... and Jiro is extending a hand to her. Hmph. No, she doesn't punt it away... but she is prideful enough to refuse it, simply by pushing to her own two feet. The music is over, people filing out as if they'd just watched the end of a play, leaving only her and Jiro... and she meets his eyes clearly and steadily, despite the pain of her body.

... good fight? Maybe. She glances down at the hand... then turns away, limping into the depths of the theatre to make her exit. Yet there's no spite in her movements. Only a sense of disappointment in herself and a strengthening of her resolve.

Like it or not, she may have to admit that she has more in common with the Stray Dog than she would publically admit to.

While Jiro would usually snort, the young man shrugs instead. It's no skin off of his back, honestly. He does, however, turn his back and he start to walk off. "Eh, later then."
He shuts his eyes, muttering. "...Hrm, just like me, it seems." Then there's an amused smile. "Heh." Then he switches to the next subject, "...Now to rinse my tongue out, for I feel dirty after that song."

COMBATSYS: Jiro has ended the fight here.
