Neo League 676 - #696: Kiyoko vs Naerose

Description: Naeleague part 2! Kiyoko and Naerose in the furnace room of Gedo! A mysterious Lazenca wondered if this was finally 'Burn the Witch' but instead it became 'Flood Gedo's Basement!' You can't miss this! (Winner: Naerose)

It's once again time for a glorious Neo League battle to be held at Gedo High, though this time rather than somewhere obvious it's been shunted downstairs. Maybe it's because the fights are too distracting to the students, or maybe someone just thought it was a good idea. The fact is that the fight is going to be held in the furnace room. If it were winter this would no doubt be an excellent place to stay warm, but with summer quickly approaching the temperature in the huge room is uncomfortably hot.

But luckily for Kiyoko, she's had relatively recent experience with fighting in overheated environments, having participated in a Saturday Night Fight inside of a sauna. She's dressed now as she was back then, wearing a tasteful dark green bikini with red flowers on it- one that's all but completely obscured by a thin white long-sleeved shirt, a large Neo League logo emblazoned on the front.

She seems to be doing alright in the heat, warming up with a slow, relaxing Tai-Chi workout, her forehead shiny with sweat, though none runs down her face at the moment. "Whew! I'm going to have to start training in one of these places, it's a lot harder to keep going than normal."

The location was probably due to the choice of opponents. Who would be best suited for out of the way,, away from distracting food, and just for grins, in a really uncomfortable place. Someone had a sense of humor. Someone told the witch this fight would take place on an ice rink. So naturally she comes over dressed, for ice skating Neo League. It would of been a cool gimmick you know? But instead it's a witch in a relatively heavy red Northface jacket with a Urban outfitters red pleated skirt and long red tights with black boots and her token shades, witches hat and broom, all ready to play hockey with. She even had a pair of ice skates slung over her shoulder.

"This has got to be a mistake!" exclaims the witch when she arrives in the furnace room,
"Someone totally told me this would be a ice skating match not a .. " She doesn't even have words to describe this.

"Ran Habiki is so behind this!"

Kiyoko's busy doing her Tai Chi thing when she hears exclamations. She ignores them in order to complete a set of movements, and then looks over towards the source, only to find a heinously overdressed witch. "Oh wow." She walks on over to Naerose at a rather slow pace, tilting her head to the side, "You really got it bad, didn't you? Are... are you going to be okay, like that? I don't mind putting this off long enough for you to go change into something else." Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself, right?

"Oh Thank you thank you thank you thank you.." The witch exclaims and starts to 'change'. She doesn't go into a bathroom or anything, you know, who needs to be modest when you change? The first thing she does is takes off the value and then turns the knob and then pushes some buttons and then the furnace is off.

"There.. that's the first change.."
She then decides to do something about the drains in the middle of the floor by clogging them up with rags and this includes the shop sized sink drain in the corner before turning on the cold water full blast.

"Right... Now the next step.." She finds the school A/C control and turns them on to the max.
"This shouldn't take long.." Naerose says with a biiiiiig smile, already the water begins to over flow.

A smile is given to Naerose as she happily accepts Kiyoko's offer and goes about her business. The changes that the witch makes rather catches Kiyoko off guard, however! "Um, is it okay to do that?" She says while scratching her head as the boiler is turned off. Okay, yes, that will definitely help quite a bit, but surely it's being used for something right?

But that's when things go from 'probably not right' to downright confusing as Naerose plugs the drains and turns water on. The purple haired student looks down as the water starts to wash up over her feet. A swimming fight? Well, she is dressed for the occasion so maybe it's not too bad... Then the air conditioner goes on and Kiyoko begins just staring at Naerose, "You could just take your jacket off, you know?"

"Huh? No way! It's going to get cold in here in a moment!" Exclaims the witch, looking at Kiyoko like she was totally out of her mind. No way there was going to be ice down here, at the very least not anytime soon, but it was going to get quite cold. As the cold air starts to blast, all across the school no less, but also in the boiler room, Naerose gives a big smile.

"Okay, that ought to do for now, are you ready?" She's left the water on, the Air conditioning on and the boiler off. Malfunctions are certain at this rate.

"So lets do this!" The witch brings up her broom and is also between Kiyoko and the A/C controls.

Naerose          0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Kiyoko

Rather than being nicely suited for a match up in a very hot room, Kiyoko is now in a bathing suit and shirt in a place that's cold. And wet. "Jeeze... this really is overkill you know. Well, whatever! This ought to be just as good training as trying to fight where it's way too hot, I guess." She doesn't sound entirely convinced, but she's trying to make the best of things, especially when her kindness was turned around to her own disadvantage.

"Yeah, I'm ready! Lets go ahead and get started before I start shivering. You may be dressed good for this now but I want to get out of here as fast as possible!" Either that or simply fight hard enough to keep herself warm, which is a distinct possibility. "...wait a second, are you actually going to fight with that broom?"

"Yep.. afraid so," Naerose says and without warning makes her first attack with said broom, sweeping her way toward Kiyoko, splashing water about and making a mess of the already meessy floor. The attack, though seemingly attempting to make Kiyoko wet and quite possibly miserable, seems to be more geared toward making Kiyokko hit with a broomm, wet and quite possibly miserable. Meanwhile the water seems to have the side effect of making Naerose wet and quite possibly miserable. Also for those Scrubs fans, the janitor of scrubs , or a man looking very similar to him, seems to have discovered the disaster appearing in the basement here now. This is.. going to be trouble. Big big trouble. For the loser!

The Justice student definitely seems shocked as Naerose actually comes forward to smack her with the broom, getting splashed with water before managing to stave the attack off with her arms thanks to her low fighting stance. Her eyes close as the water thrashes about, really wishing Naerose could have just turned the AC on and forgotten about the water. What was the point of that anyway? From her perspective it makes no sense at all!

But she can't stand around wishing things were different- she has to move on the offensive if she wants to win! So she rolls forward onto her hands, nearly slipping due to the extra slick and submerged floor, and tries to hook her ankles behind Naerose's neck. If successful she'll heave her weight backwards to flip the witch up and over herself and slam her down to the floor, no doubt soaking them both in the process.

Well - ! One thing that Naenae hadn't considered was that dodging would be made nearly impossible in this huge pond like puddly water filling the room and covering the ground. Naerose is forced to flip with the throw and just try to break her fall before hitting the ground, hard, whch she does, with a splash. Actually it even hurt a bit, though the water helped break the fall in some sense. It was a sort of half half situation. Still it offered something interesting, the oppertunity to stay sort of near the ground and make a poke with her broom toward the feet of Kiyoko with a broad grin on the witches wet face.

Naerose          0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0           Kiyoko

Naeroses going with the throw means that it does in fact complete. Which means that Kiyoko hits the water with a splash just as much as the witch. Sure it doesn't hurt her, but now she's soaking wet in a very cold room, making her decidedly not comfortable. What would make her even less comfortable would be Naerose jabbing her feet with that broom handle of hers. Reacting on instinct she uncoils herself from Naerose and curls up into a ball, just managing to pull her feet out of the way in time. She then quickly throws her weight forward and arcs her back, managing to flip back up to her feet in a single motion.

Once up she's not entirely sure what to do with Naerose still on the ground. It's pretty rude to kick someone while they're down... maybe it's not an actual rule, and a bit nieve in a fight like this one, but she doesn't want to do it. Instead she moves quickly over to the air conditioning controls and tries twisting the knob to the 'off' position, only to have it break right off in her hands. With an incredulous and annoyed look she turns and glares at Naerose, before throwing the offending piece of broken controls at the witch's face out of annoyance.

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko successfully hits Naerose with Thrown Object.

Naerose          0/-------/-----==|=------\-------\0           Kiyoko

As Naenae knew, the water would make getting out of the way really hard, but she figured she could duck right? And just like a comical blooper video, which this was likely to appear on, the witch started to duck just as the flying knob started to dip in the air, down toward the witch and finally striking her straight on the face. It would of struck her much more harmlessly had she not ducked INTO it.

"You gotta be kidding me" the witch protests to being struck with the object. Then, well, she has a bit of ground to slosh through to get to Kiyoko, which she sloshes through, holds out her palm and gives a shout of,

"En Criento!"

Her token swirling of energy, making a bigger mess of the basement which still have the facets dumping cold water out, making it progressively deeper.

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko blocks Naerose's End Creation.

Naerose          0/-------/-----==|==-----\-------\0           Kiyoko

"It serves you right for being brought down by your own scemes," the Tai-Chi artist states, never mind that the plan itself is working just fine and is in full swing, now nearly irreversible now that the knob is floating somewhere in the slowly raising water. The time it takes Naerose to get through the water to her gives Kiyoko plenty of opportunity to prepare for whatever is coming her way. The energy swirls about and Kiyoko reacts, shielding herself as best she can with her arms once more and balancing her inner energy in a way that protects her from the assault.

With that dealt with she's ready to attack once more. This time she's going to go for a much more conventional strike, though, simply stepping forward towards Naerose and sending a sideways chop towards her neck, letting out a quick, "Yah!" as she strikes.

COMBATSYS: Naerose blocks Kiyoko's Strong Punch.

Naerose          0/-------/----===|===----\-------\0           Kiyoko

Dodging was still out, more so than before, ducking might of worked, but she instead brought up her broom arm and let the blow hit her there, which it does, which is nice, except ouch. It hurts. Man her feet move so slow in the water and it's cold water! And she can't get her hips to twist for a very effective throw. That leaves only one choice. Naerose brings up her broom and tries to hit Kiyoko upside the head with a really solid swing and thawk measure.

"Alright, taaaake this, and then please don't give it back because I call no give backs!"

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko dodges Naerose's Fierce Strike.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Naerose          0/-------/---====|===----\-------\0           Kiyoko

Kiyoko proves that water is the natural enemy of the Red Witch, no matter how many people claim that fire is the answer by managing to duck down beneath the powerful swing, the broom flying over her head and swooping through the air with a windy noise. She pops back up a moment later, "Nah, don't worry! I've learned from Ayame that trying to hit someone with their own weapon is a pretty horrible idea." Seriously, trying to grab a pole or broom will likely just get you smacked with it extra hard.

But rather than trying anything like trying to punch Naerose, Kiyoko takes the passive route, stepping backwards and remaining defensive while trying to figure out the method behind Naerose's madness. Fear for her, she might lose her own sanity in the process.

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko focuses on her next action.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Naerose          0/-------/---====|===----\-------\0           Kiyoko

And so the match progresses at a crawl, but that's okay with Naerose because she doesn't mind her opponent doing that, not that it matters. She just prefers not getting hit to getting hit so when the time comes that she isn't being Hit, she's happy. Plenty happy. Even if it maybe means that later she will get hit more and harder than before, there was a disconnect between the now and later.

"Right, Sagitta. .Oh nevermind." The witch contends, starting with a chi explosion and ending up just extending her broom and trying to nail Kiyoko on the forehead with the end of the stick.

Naerose          0/-------/=======|====---\-------\0           Kiyoko

Kiyoko likes being prepared for whatever might happen. Her fighting style essentially revolves around her being able to protect herself from whatever might be sent her way, so learning to anticipate someone elses moves is very much to her advantage. So when Naerose starts speaking in Latin(?) again Kiyoko expects a moment of build up and then a release of chi. She moves instantly to capitalize on the buildup, quickly reversing her backward steps and sloshing through the water. Only then does Naerose abort her attack and smack Kiyoko in the forehead with her broom handle.

But unfortunately for her Kiyoko is already up and in her face, her arms swinging in hard circular motions, one arm managing to smack into Naerose's and cut the strength of the blow off significantly. The followup then continues, a neck chop much like the one parried earlier striking home before Kiyoko once more beats on Naerose's arms, intending to make then nice and sore so that she can't swing her broom around quite as easily as she'd like. It probably won't /work/ but she has to try!

Well without a brrom arm working as well as it should Nae has only one other option, she has to use her other arm! So Naerose extends her hand, palm first and shouts,
"En Criento!"

Another torrent of white energy sloshes water around and bursts forth at Kiyoko. The attack reflecting in her shades and a big grin extending over her face as she does so. If one thing is terribly evident is that Naerose thinks very highly of herself, perhaps too highly really.

COMBATSYS: Naerose successfully hits Kiyoko with End Creation.

Naerose          1/-------/=======|=======\-------\0           Kiyoko

Kiyoko is of the mind that staying put while witches summon up their power and try to blast you is a pretty awful idea. Because of this she tries getting out of the way again, only this time a simple ducking down just isn't going to do it. She finds out herself now how much harder trying to shift to the side can be when there's so much water at your legs, and only manages a partial movement, the white energy blasting into her and causing her to trip backwards and fall onto her duff.

She winces a little from the pain, but actually seems more annoyed by the ice cold water she's been forced to take a quick bathe in. It's getting /seriously/ cold in here now! "I'm going to be so mad if I get sick because of this," she states plainly to Naerose. She steps in towards the woman, but rather than trying something like a kick she decides to show her frustration. She does this by trying to stomp her bare heel onto Naerose's foot. It can be fun acting like a twelve year old, sometimes.

COMBATSYS: Naerose interrupts Light Kick from Kiyoko with Spellbinder.

Naerose          1/-----==/=======|=======\====---\1           Kiyoko

Naerose gets her foot stepped on, but while that's happening she totally aims her broom with a flash from her hand, like she was holding a flash bang for Kiyoko's head. So the flash is blinding, reflecting off her shades and the growing water and the broom.. ? It's just @#$@# painful. She does a total downward heavy swing with it, the sort of thing that, yeah, this is going to probably hurt a lot.

Kiyoko seems to have walked into a trap with that one, seeming to do next to nothing with her stomp, which has everything to do with the sudden near explosion of bright energy from Naerose, the broom coming down upon the frail girl and smashing her away, flinging her backwards so that she crashes into a nearby support pillar and crumples.

She's down for a good long moment, only able to pick herself up from the ground after taking time to recover from the powerful blow. She readies herself once she gets up off the floor, taking a bit of effort to keep from shivering in the cold room. Then without much warning she takes a few steps forward and leaps at Naerose, trying to land on her and smash both feet into the witch's stomach.

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko successfully hits Naerose with Winter's End.

Naerose          1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0           Kiyoko

Upon connecting with the kick Kiyoko twists her body around backwards, quickly reaching out and hooking her ankles back around Naerose's neck like she did before. Once the hold is made she flips herself backwards, ripping the witch off her feet and smashing her hard to the ground. Despite the splash of water making it nearly impossible for her, she somehow manages to get the momentum to flip back off of the ground and then smash Naerose down a second time. Normally there'd be more coming but that water is really just cramping her style.

Getting kick and thrown into the ground was terrible, specially with the water and the splash causing her to be totally like, under water and glug glug glug. Gah.. Drowning. The witch was.. Drowning! Guess what Nae nae. No one cares. She needs to get herself out of this one, so Naerose throws from under the surface with some bubbling of the progress of darts shooting through the air and toward their intended victim: Kiyoko. Also the witch shouts somethign under the water, it sounds likee

"Glugglug glug!"

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko fails to slow Sagitta Minor from Naerose with Spring Blossom.

COMBATSYS: Kiyoko can no longer fight.

Naerose          1/-----==/=======|

With Kiyoko recovering from her onslaught, and equally underwater, Naerose fires off a few precision blasts of energy at the high school student. The girl responds in kind, rolling around so that she can swing her arm in a wide swath, only to find that the water keeps her from moving it fast enough to fully create the crescent of energy she was making before the darts of energy hit her. The crash right through the partially formed energy and blast into Kiyoko, knocking her backwards slowly through the water.

Once they're all done hitting her Kiyoko doesn't seem to even care about fighting Naerose anymore, instead moving quickly to shove her head above the surface and take deep gasps of air, not liking the prospect of drowning much herself.

That's when things get way out of hand. The water continues to fill the boiler room and finally hits the boxes of cleaning supplies.. Soon the water and soap mixes for epic disaster. As you probably know, soap makes bubbles in water and then makes more and more and it gets way out of hand way fast. This is where the witch currently was. Soon it was hard to tell which way was up or down because there was soap suds everywhere and filling the room at a suffocating rate.

"Ahh.. ! We gotta get otta heree!" cries Naerose, as you can only just see a flash of red in a sea of white. But the problem was, which way was out?

Bubbles everywhere? Certainly not what Kiyoko would have expected! Before she can do much other than catch her breath the room is suddenly full of bubbles, leaving her in a rather odd predicament. The water keeps rising, and she stumbles around for several long moments trying to find the exit. Eventually she states simply, "This is all your fault, Naerose."

Afterwards she walks straight until she hits a wall, letting out an 'oof', and then trying to feel her way around. Eventually there /has/ to be a door!

Yes a door! Only the witch sloshes and stumbles around too. I mean after all, this situation couldn't possible get any worse could it? Could it? While this is all very much not the case, things get knocked off of shelves, adding objects to the water and the soap and then.. Well shouts from upstairs can be heard. Someone.. is going to be in troube for this, someone is going to have to pay damages, someone is..

"Aw snap the po po!" Naerose cries and quickens her efforts to escape and knocks other things over in the process.

A door, a door... there just aren't any doors to be found! But fortunately Kiyoko happens to find the next best thing: A window. Oh sure it's tiny and way up high, but that's not a problem! Kiyoko scrambles upward, managing to find the lock in the bubbly mess and release it. Even if the window is way up high to her it's only on ground level outside the school, and so she finds herself crawling out onto the grass in a bikini, shivering, and covered in bubbles. You can imagine the kinds of looks the students are giving her right now. "Err..." Rather than deal with them she decides to be nice, "Hey Naerose, over here!"

SAVIOR! Naerose is saved because she is led to safety by the helpful and friendly Kiyoko, of course the facets are still going and she is chased through the window by a quickly rising berth of bubbles that break out the window and spill onto the ground like ooze. Naenae scrambles out and gasps for breath, looking white and red and wet all over before taking the chance to try and make a run for it. She struggles to her feet, still gasping for air and then says,
"Err. See ya!" and starts to run

Which leaves Kiyoko standing there looking silly, and just in time for an irate janitor to come up to her and start screaming. Rather than looking upset she simply points at Naerose, "It wasn't me, it was her! Just ask the cameramen, they got it all on tape." And so begins the chase.
