LLK Act I.War - War : A Heavy Giant

Description: A wall. A fist. Two of these things meat, in the form of a meaty culmination between boxer and sumo. But is this fight for the children.. or is it a test? Gan, guilty of not being able to protect, takes things into his own hands.. and unfortunately ends up in a battle with a potential ally. But all things do not end poorly!

He really shouldn't be here. He honestly shouldn't be. This isn't the city that he's the most concerned about. Sure, he's visited more than enough times and made good contacts and relationships with people who care about it as much as he cares about Metro....but it's not 'HIS' city.

So why is D! here, looking into Southtown from the outskirts of the city? Well...he heard about someone he needs to deal with being active during the whole gang war he's heard about, someone he really wished wasn't involved. Dufflebag slung over his shoulder, he walked out of the truck he had hitched a ride with up to the city limits, waving the man off before looking on from the side of the road. "Dammit, this better not cross over into Metro..." he mutters, walking on.

"STOP!" A voice cries out, loud, forceful, and belonging to a rather large man. Actually, on closer inspection, it just looks like a man. Gan's massive, size, height, weight, and seems to be closer to a tree than an actual human - But that's just due to his upbringing. Right now, the large boy has his sights set on Heavy D!

"We already have enough problems here.. " Gan starts to make his way towards the potentially threatening figure of D!, the just as large D! being a sure thing for trouble, in Gan's eyes. His knuckles crack, as he closes the distance. Wooden sounds of the sandals, as they strike against the ground.

"You aren't going to make it worse." Gan exclaims, "Get out."

He's not even giving Heavy D! the chance to respond! Gan might be a bit slow, but he's heavily protective.. and all those who've come to Southtown, lately, have only came to cause trouble. He's just had enough of it, and while he can't think of a good way to take care of it with his mind..

Gan's body is more than enough to speak with, in this situation.

Heavy D! Freezes in his tracks, hearing the rather loud bellow...and looking up to the rather stout, mountainous man trying to bar his way on the road. "I know about the problems in there. Hell, I'm probably going after one of the guys that's helping make the problem," he says with a little resignation before looking to the wide studet. D! may be a few inches taller, but the kid seems to have the girth advantage.

"If you're trying to keep things under control here, trust me, I'm not one of the guys you need to be on the look after." He's tempted to give out his name...but then again, he's not sure just who Gan is, or who he's representing here...

"I'm not going to be fooled." Gan responds. He doesn't know this man. He doesn't know what he stands for. What his morals are. Or his honesty. Normally, Gan would be happy to trust. Normally, Gan would accept it. There have been many problems.. but he has never been as helpless as he has been lately, in protecting Gedo, the Don, and Akira.

He can't let anything make it /worse/.

His gaze on Heavy D! doesn't falter as the man speaks, talking about going after one of the guys. "You're not getting in." The large, muscled student moves in the way, adopting a sumo-stance and slamming the wooden sandal hard into the ground. It creaks from the force, and a miniature shockwave can almost be felt.

Just almost.

"I said the schools had enough problems... and they aren't going to get any from you. That's what the Don would want." Gan says to himself, blocking Heavy D!'s path. He's getting ready, muscles straining, easily bending the cloth that he wears around them.. save for the side of the uniform he ripped off.

"I'm not letting you in." If it wasn't obvious enough.

Heavy D! sighs. This...is a problem, he supposes. At least he knows the kid is from the schools...which means that he's probably not with any of the crime groups that are the big problem here. Still...if he's not letting him through....

The duffle bag drops, D! straightening his jacket, and pulling off his sunglasses. Folding them up and pocketing them, he gives a glance toward the big Gan, his eyes visible for the first time since his arrival. "Sorry then, but I have to get into Southtown. No hard feelings for this, huh?" he insists...before he slips into a boxer's stance, peekaboo guard raised as he gets himself set. If he has to fight his way in...so be it, apologizes to the rest of the kids afterwards, etc.

Heavy D!'s words are reinforced by his actions. He wants to get into Southtown. But Gan. Gan wants the very opposite, for right now, there is no help that he knows of that would come from outside of Southtown. All that has came in, was trouble. Trouble had to be stopped somewhere, if they couldn't force any more of it out!

The sumo student of Gedo's eyes focus on Heavy D!'s, as he gives him time to come to his decision. That he has to get into it, and that he's willing to fight for it, is proof enough .. that he's here for a reason. That he's willing to fight, for good or for ill.. Gan will have to see it firsthand!

The Don has taught Gan much about how you learn about a person's character. Much of it, you see, is in a fight. The cheap shots. The talk within a battle. Their honor.

There's only going to be one way to find out about Heavy D!. "None.. At all. I said I'd protect this town." Gan gets into motion, arms spreading wide, as he makes his move, sandals hitting the ground, the giant taking both arms, and slamming them into his chest, palms, if he can get that far.

From there, both would surrounding him, crushing him in his grip, before tossing him away from the town.. but not very far.

It's more of a statement, the toss. The rest, however, is anything but.

Admirable is Gan's devotion to protecting the town. It's really only circumstance that forces the two into a fight like this in the first place.

As the big rikishi comes forward and tries to slam out with those tree trunk arms and paddle-like palms, they meet...resistance. D! may not be quite as stoutly muscled, but the American Boxer is a big man in his own right, and his forearms are steely enough to bear back the sumo shots, and wrench away Gan's grip before he's tossed away. "Nothing personal, believe me," he insists, before he takes a step in, trying to wing in a quick shot to Gan's voluminous torso and stomach.

D!'s resistance is formidable. The American boxer is capable of taking the strike, bearing back the strength of Gan - Wrenching away his grip, and leaving Gan open. The steps towards Gan, a quick shot to his torso and stomach, slam against wood and flesh.

It would be hard to tell which, exactly, is thicker. Gan's pushed backwards from the strike, but he does not fall. He does not bend to the power of Heavy D! The strike causes Gan to lose his breathe - and the damage done is far from anything weak.. but for a strike like that, Gan seems .. vaguely unbothered, at the end of it all.

"... Good. Because it will take far more.. than to defeat me."

He had tried to take the blow - But D!'s speed proves that finesse beats pure strength, and muscle, at times. That does not mean it is useless on the offensive. Gan's few steps back are retraced, quickly, as the student slams a sandal into the ground, moving forwards, and low, as his right palm comes forwards. Chi swallows the palm, as the meaty, trunk like appendage shoots forwards. The other follows. And the other follows after that, as well, forcing Heavy D! on the defensive!

Heavy D! wasn't expecting the shot to be the end of things. He's a patient man and knows fights are rarely finished by the first punch. Not to mention he doesn't want to TRULY put a hurt on the kid. After the sharp body blow, D! pulls back, and seemingly just in time too. WHen Gan stamps forward, and thrusts his palm out, the blast expands right where he would ahve been standing. That extra step back is the difference between D! evading the shot and getting struck head on, the boxer twisting his body away and slide in with another step past the shot. No banter this time. Instead he comes in low himself, intent on destabilizing the big man's center of gravity. Makes sense for someone like a sumo, whose balance is supposed to be everything.

Steps rolling forward, D! comes in sharp with a hook straight on to the center of Gan's stomach, apparently aiming for the kid's solar plexus...and following up with a rising hook, the contingent of blows meant to rock the rikishi, then send him reeling while his balance is off.

D!'s speed is truly a sight to behold, especially as he thrusts forwards.. and D! is no longer there. But Gan never gives up. No matter how far behind, or how 'beaten' he may be. Gan isn't one to let himself be beaten down.. without a fight. D! moves in close after, attempting to come in low. To slam a strike, rather hard, into the center of his stomach.

But the blows only meet the fists of Gan, arms rising to take the blow. To weather it. The force of the blows is strong, but Gan does not falter as he takes the shots, body rocking from the last few ones. He is rocked. But the mountain still refuses to come down. "Pretty fast.."

As D! moves in close, Gan intends to make use of it. A meaty hand swinging around, intending to grasp, and pluck, the larger fighter into the air. He'd aim to swing him around, as well, before finally bringing him down, to crash him into the pavement. And then do the same once more, with the other leg.

He's got a town to protect. He'll do his best here.

Apparently, D! gauged Gan's reach and strength wrong....as hen he doesn't pull away after the combination, the boxer finds himself grabbed by that meaty hand, and lifted up...only to be crashed down to the pavement...and again. Brutal stuff, really. "HGnnnn...."

It's a small miracle that he's able to get up so soon after the crashing throw, too, but get up he does, pulling himself to his feet in a slow lurch. "NGhh....you're a strong kid....might've made *cough* a good boxer too..." he inists. And again, he tries to make his way in, this time trying to slam a hard hook deep into Gan's side...perhaps even to try and break through that barrel belt of his.

Heavy D! of all things, is able to get back up. Now that's something Gan didn't expect. "It's all I have." Gan responds, without any hint of ego. No pride. No joy.

He does not fight for fun, like some other students from Gedo. He does not fight to prove himself. As the Don has taught him, he should only fight to grow. To protect. To learn. These rules are the very guidelines that have shaped Gan Isurugi while at Gedo, and have brought him far in physical strength.

The mental strength thing is still coming along - But as he also had learned, a challenging battle is a battle worth fighting. He'll beat those books, one day. It just might take alot more than punching them.

"I prefer sumo..." It allows him to use his size, which is understandable. And less thinking, behind overpower them. "But thank you." He responds, as the hard hook slams deep into Gan's side. It doesn't go as far as D! might want. The wooden belt splinters, but does not break. It should have. Yet, a meaty hand about D!'s own explains it all. Once again, D! becomes airborne, but this time, Gan jerks Heavy D! through the air. Throwing him around, whipping him, using both hands, Gan treats the equally large fighter like a rag-doll, before finally swinging him hard into the pavement, letting go at the end.. and stepping away.

"It's nothing personal either."

Now that hurt....

D! tried to come in with the hook....but before he can press that punch in deep, the meaty sumo hand grabs hima dn whips him about...finally slamming him to the pavement....again. That wasn't what D! planned at all....and this presents a problem, as it seems to completely assert Gan's dominance of the range D! fights most comfortably in. This...is not good.

As D! slowly manages to pull himself up once more, he grunts, teeth gnashing. His pride as a fighter isn't allowing himself to simply accept that he's not going to be allowed in, at least not like this. Rising up, he whips out a sharp uppercut, sparks and scattering bursts of chi expanding outward from the arc of his punch toward the rikishi.

As D! goes to use.. something else, Gan cannot follow him. D!'s planning, to keep him farther away, works. The sharp uppercut sends the energy towards Gan, sparks and scattering bursts of chi expanding, and then slamming into the sumo. Gan's pushed back, his body awash in the energy. It's .. rather terrible. "Geeeh!!" Gan grunts, resisting the force - trying to literately push through it.

He can't. His body is thrown backwards, even as he fights against the energy torrent. Bursts of chi slamming into him and pushing him farther back, tossing him off his feet.. and onto the ground below. It doesn't take long, however, for him to recover. He keeps pushing. His focus, on Heavy D! .. Stays. Soundly pushed back, Gan is forced only to fight on. He would do no less.

This energy, and neither any other kind, would only slow his progress. He refuses to allow it to be completely halted.

"You .. aren't going to stop me .. that easily." Gan responds, as he attempts to grasp the man by the front of his clothing.

It's a slow, yet spirited grab, as he muscles, still aching, attempt to dump Heavy D! closer to Gan .. so he can squeeze.

HeavyD           1/-----==/=======|=======\=====--\1              Gan

Something like that had to be anticipated...considering the sport of sumo...and how this fight has unfolded so far, it was only expected that Gan would have to come in close to get to D!.

That was something the Metro City native was expecting. When the rikishi grabs for the boxer's jacket, D! suddenly lunges in. Chi focused around his arm in a swirling tornado, he slams out a straight, charging punch directly toward Gan's stomach, full intents on pushing him back and driving him away with a deep blow to the solar plexus. "Hrrhhhhhhhh!!" comes the grunt, breath forced out in a sharp exhale just as the punch surges forward, adding to the force he puts behind the shot.

Oh, the anticipation. Gan attempts to get in close to HeavyD! once again.. and is cruelly denied. The sumo grasps, and D! lunges. Chi, focused around the arm, pulls straight towards Gan's stomach. The sumo is more than pushed back, almost launched a degree away, crashing backwards against the ground, even rolling once the strike connects.

Back against the ground, though, Gan weakly begins to push himself up.

Even D!'s force isn't enough to keep him down forever. In this case, his will to fight continues on. He can't allow himself to stay on the ground, even if his body is smoking from the force of the chi against him. The fumes are terrible, and the meat is .. /served/. Gan's been tenderized.. but his sandals once again hit the ground, the sumo rising upwards, glancing right at Heavy D!

It's going to get ugly, soon.

"RAAAAAAAAAAAGH!" Gan cries, as he moves in, aiming to grasp Heavy D! once more. But this time, his grasp is sweeping, hands refusing to be stopped, body pushing, giving it everything. Gan refuses to simply lay down and give up.

But if HeavyD! is grasped.. even the slightest. The street may be about to get a renovation.

HeavyD!'s grasped.

And then suddenly, the world for him, will go upside down.

With a bit of a roar, Gan begins to almost play King Kong with Heavy D! Two hands are used, to make up for D!'s mountainous size, but still, Gan begins to whip Heavy D! Through the air. But that's only half of it. Whipped forwards, Heavy D! meets the concrete of the road, before being whipped once more into the air, and then again. Over and over, Gan continues to bring Heavy D! in contact with the street, and the sidewalk, using all the force he can muster to tear apart D's defenses.

And finally, toss him away, straight into the ground, and not upwards. "Hah.... Hah.... Hah..." Gan is pretty winded, now.

Sadly, D!'s starting to get slightly winded. Between three massive slams into the pavement, amongst other things, as well as his own exertion, he's a bit off the boards here. Which is a big problem, as the sumo rises up, even after that deep strike D! gave him, and charges in with a wide grasp. Unable to pull away in time, the boxer is grabbed by meaty hands. All that's left to do...is brace for impact.

Whipped about, the boxer finds himself suddenly slammed...again...into the street for the fourth time in the fight before the boxer is flung again. And that seems to be that. Landing in a heap, D! seems not about to move any time soon....but what's that feeling? That feeling of....amassing energy?

And then...D! rises again. What? Yep, he's rising, despite looking like hell warmed over. And as he rises, his right fist is...glowing? Oh yeah, with a planted foot, D! snaps out that right fist with all he can, without even rising from his crouch, trying to let the cannon of a punch loose into Gan before he truly collapses.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD successfully hits Gan with D. Magnum.

As D! once again rises.. the right fist, glowing, snaps out towards Gan. The larger teenager is smashed into it. Winded. There's nothing left to do.. but try and move right into it. "RAA-" The fist slams into Gan, sending him basically flying backwards, tossed away, body hitting the concrete that he had just slammed D! into. Yet as he strikes the ground, being driven against it.. the Sumo only stays down for so long, once more.

It's just not worth doing.. unless you give everything you have. Your heart. Your soul. And every last bit of strength.

Which is why Gan rises once again, hands weakly pushing his body upwards, once again heading towards Heavy D! Sandals slam against the concrete, clocking noises, of wood and heavy material, are made. The front of Gan's barrel is burst open, and the heavyset sumo of Gedo .. is out of chances.

Except for one.

Scooping HeavyD! up if he can get him, his charge is changed into a swing, Heavy D! suddenly enjoying a nice air view, the forces of thermodynamics working against the larger boxer, as his body is forcefully introduced to the windcurrent, as well as gravity, before the teenager would finally run out of energy.. and let go..

Collapsing forwards, amidst the charge.. or after the chuck.

He gave it his all... and that is what the Don would want. "... I felt that one..." Gan remarks.

....that's not what he expected.

D! hit dead on with the Magnum, enough to blow the rikishi back pretty badly. So why is he thundering toward D! again? It's a sad state that D! ends up scooped up, his fatigue enough that Gan is able to pick the boxer up yet again, thrown up....and slammed back down with a ridiculous impact. One that...the boxer doesn't rise from this time around.....

All this for a way into the city?

The heavyset teenager sits up, winded, unable to fight .. but fight, they no longer need.

Heavy D! is there, but Gan's voice is loud enough that he does not need to move far for it to travel. "You .. fought honorably..." Gan goes on, winded yet, the punch, and that last action, taking so much away from him.

"Maybe you do mean well." Gan suggests, crossing his legs. "If you put so much effort into proving it." He's rubbing his chin, now. Nodding.

Heavy D! stirs, despite the pain his body in. That wasn't so much sumo as it was treating D! like a ragdoll, in all honesty, which was surprising considering his size...but maybe not so considering Gan's own size. "Nhh...thanks..." he says, not much else coming out of him as he focuses mostly on keeping conscious and pulling himself up to his knees.

"Ha ha ha... you proved you have heart.. and that Gedo High can trust you, at least." He makes it obvious of the school. The least he can do, after that rather brutal meeting. Gan's .. used to such terrible beatings, and violence, and continual cycles of whiplash, and whiplashing. He's a Gedo student.. and above all else, somewhat a thug.

Just a good natured, little-old lady helping, kind thug.

"Too much happened so fast here. I couldn't even make it to Gedo from the farm." He notes, pointing in the direction. "About when I learned what went down.. it's been too late. So I started guarding the entry."

"So they wouldn't get by me anymore."

Gan, meanwhile, doesn't think of the airport. Or the Port. Or the other entrances.

Least he's got a big heart.

Yep, that makes it obvious where Gan's allegiences lie. Good thing too, as it makes D! a lot more willing to overlook having to fight him like this too. "Nhhh....how bad is it then?" he asks. He can't help but be curious. After all, it's flashbacks to Rolento's crap in Metro. Not to mention his own vested interest in finding one of the agents of chaos involved in all this too...

"Fighting all over." Gan responds. "I'm not sure how the rest are. Just that they are fighting a losing battle." He, unfortunately, must say. "I am sure they are doing their best." Gan .. couldn't really get in. There was alot happening.. and with all of the movements, of troops and of fighters, and schoolkids, it's been hectic.

"It's very bad." Gan, straight out answers.

Heavy D! frowns, nodding as he slowly starts to stand up again, working out all the kinks being repeatedly slammed into the street created in his body. "Nmmhh....god, like a deja vu. Any sign of a guy with an oversized American football shoulderpad that you know of?" he asks.

Gan stands as well, finally, and shakes his head. "I haven't seen him. Too many places here. He might be here." Gan responds. "But he hasn't come or gone, here." Gan notes, at least telling him everything he knows. "He might already be in Southtown." He adds, before stretching. "Still can feel that blow.."

Heavy D! sighs. Well, that doesn't help D! as far as finding that certain person, unfortunately. It was worth a try to see, however. "I know Gedo, if only vaguely. Been around here more than enough to know the reputation. Hope you guys keep things locked down at the very least, and if you need help..." The sentence trails off, but it seems D!'s more than offering encouragement there.

As Heavy D! finishes the words, Gan shakes his head. "Gedo was hit hard. The students might not be able to go back for a while." If they even CAN. "Can't even get close." Gan explains, before Heavy D! offers. "I will be sure to ask.. if there's anything that you can do." The Gedo sumo star exclaims, extending a massive, meaty fist.

"And I'll help you also. If you need it."

Heavy D! frowns. That's even worse. He didn't realize it was that bad, if Gedo was taken like that. "Well, crap..." he says, shaking his head. "I have to find a safe place to keep myself if I'm going to be here for a while...." he says, shaking his head a little more. As the fist is extended...D! gives him the fighter's handshake, tapping knuckles with the Rikishi. "Thanks."

"You are welcome." Gan responds, knuckles tapping with Heavy D!, as he lowers his arm. "I will still be here.. and I will stay here, until I am needed elsewhere." Gan responds to Heavy, as he might get to moving. "Try to find a place." He adds, "But if you can't, I will try to help as well." But he doesn't seem to be moving, mountainous kid, once again, standing against the ground. Waiting.

Heavy D! nods, picking up his duffle bag...and realizing he's going to need a LOT night's rest to sleep this fight off as he makes his way down the road, watching the stout kid as he keeps up his post as watch on this road. "...just don't stay out here too long kid. The rest of the world isn't going to be just coming down this road..."
