Neo League 826 - #847: Nataya vs Gan

Description: Nataya and Gan clash in Gedo! The Mild Monk holds her own against the Titanic Teen as fierce fists and mystic mists fly. Both fighters do tremendous amounts of damage to one another, but when the dust clears, who is the victor? Read to find out! ( Draw Match )

The street is a normal one - however, it's anything but a normal day! Despite the rough and rowdy nature, and atmosphere of Gedo High, the fight lines have been drawn outside of it.. or rather, that's exactly why they're here! The street is fenced off, and many of the neighbors and those nearby are happy that this time there will be a LEGAL and ENDORSED fight take place, one sanctioned and protected rather than a rumble by the Gedo students against.. well, nearly anything that comes into their's territory!

Especially if it's unlawful. That tends to make it a better target.

Now, the lines have been drawn - it is a rather simple set up fight. The concrete has been drawn upon, chalk staining the street that's been roped off. They needed a nice, solid place. Especially with their competitors!

Standing on one side is a member of the Don's own posse, Gan Isurugi - and stand he does, standing rather high of all things! He's quite a tall one. Sandals clatter against the hard ground, the wooden platforms of the sandals clapping every step he takes into the ring, roped off, chalked up, and with an announcer on the side.

"This fight is between on Gedo student Gan Isurugi and Nataya Kovit! ( unless last name not given ). We expect great things from the fight - but talking only keeps us from the action that much longer!"

So of course, he stops.

Cracking his knuckles.. Gan looks to the other side. ".. It will be an honor to fight you." Least he's nice, despite his size.

While not Nataya's first Neo League battle, it's the first one in a long time since her realtive fading into obscurity. So when they handed her the fight card of a massive young man by the name of Gan as an intro fight, it didn't surprise her. The best thign to do is to come back in a flashy battle, right?

The monk girl offers a smile as she steps onto the concrete, looking at her surroundings. This area has definitely seen better days, but that doesn't mean it still doesn't have some promise. Nataya is really home almost anywhere, though, so the state of Gedo street doesn't really affect her in the slightest.

Compared to Gan, Nataya's practically diminutive. The massive sumo practing teen dwarfs her by more than a head.

Still, she bows politely. If the giant kid is going to show her a level of respect, then of course she's going to the same. After all, there's no sense in being rude, is there?

"It should be fun," she replies, "and it's a pleasure to meet you. Let's both fight our hardest, yes?" She claps once before letting her hands raise up in a pose that looks like a Muay Thai fighting stance, a strong of beads hanging from each wrist as she smiles, readying herself for combat.

Ah, the monk girl is a nice one. The smile is returned by a grin from the larger kid, Gan looking down to her as she steps forwards to meet him in the midst. She is .. rather small though. The size difference as they grow closer becomes more than obvious, Gan towering over the monk girl - but size does not matter for everything in these fights.

Size, however, is a good indicator of just how strong someone is! In this case, it does not like.

Watching as Nataya bows, Gan gives a grin off to the smaller one, especially as she exclaims it will be fun. "Haha.. that is one way of putting it... I find fighting to be calming. It allows you to focus your strength and your mind... and it's a pretty good work out too. I wouldn't hold back, so don't worry about that." Gan makes his movement forwards, stepping forth, as Nataya raises herself into a fighting stance - beads! How odd.

"Here goes..."

Gan lunges, palms smashing towards the middle of her guard, attempting to break it - before he grasps for her, aiming to take her, pull her upwards, and then whip her against the concrete - all before tossing her skywards!

Well, it's off to a dramatic start, at least!

Nataya is simply not ready for the speed and strength of her opponent and is caught completely flat footed. The massive hand grabs her and suddenly her world is spinning, whirling, and rattling as the bone crushing force of the slam shatters the concrete.

The blow causes her to ratchet out a gasp as she rolls back to recover from the tremendous hit. Lungs heave with a painful cough as she tips forward, her hands slamming down to the ground.

Then smoke seems to pour from her sleeves, engulfing her in a whirling miasma of gray and silver clouds that boil up out of her like a thing possessed. Normally, she doesn't go straight into the light show, but from the powerful hit she just took, it's absolutely warranted! The smoke rolls forward, swooping around towards Gan as the clattering sound of beads hitting the ground announces their approach.

The little spheres seem to manevuer of their own accord, lifting up off the ground as they weave through the air. Then, suddenly, energy strings through the massive swarm of beads, forming a net that attempts to engulf Gan, trying to constrict him and sear hot energy bonds into him to bring him to the ground!

COMBATSYS: Gan interrupts Five Precepts from Nataya with Giant Storm.

Gan              1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1           Nataya

Nataya slams against the ground, and Gan watches her work to her feet. "I do not mean to harm you so quickly.. but it was only for your benefit, here." The Gedo student speaks, moving closer, putting himself into a position, rather close, before. The smoke about her sleeves pours, engulfing her, the whirling miasma burning about her.

The smoke rolls towards Gan, trying to engulf him, allowing the beads to surround and devour him. The searing energy comes, beginning to grasp him. He can feel their effects.

And then his arm shoots out, grasping for Nataya, pulling her upwards and beginning to whip her around. Able to pull through the burning assault, the Gedo student whips around Nataya like a rag doll, finishing by slamming her against the ground once.. and then twice, pulling her upwards and then tossing her, chest first, against the ground. He glances down.

"That was something .. but it's still going to take more than that.. I'm sure you've got some fight left in you!"

Clearly! Nataya is being faced with an opponent with far superior strength, and she's definitely on the ropes here. But on the ropes isn't the same as being out.

Slightly winded from the last attack, she's still trying to recover. Her head is spinning and she hasn't had a lot of time to concentrate, much less come up with witty banter. The smoke whirling around her is doing it's best to cover her as she prepares her next attack as the beads draw away from Gan, whirling back into the air and coalescing into discs.

Orchestrating these odd weapons takes concentration, and she's had very little time to do that in this fight as her hands raise, weaving through the smoke to conduct the movements of the shimmering discs that dart around like tiny UFOs though the air. Once they're in position however, she triggers the attack.

Each disc fires a beam of energy that feels like pure kinetic force. If they connect, the dics will essentially juggle the large man, bouncing him around the ring as if they were playing catch with the massive teenager before finally firing simultaneously, blasting him into the sky!

Gan advances, but in response, the odd weapons that are spinning about knock her around, the weapons weaving through the smoke, bouncing Gan around the discs, the beams tossing him about rapidly, launching him farther and farther into the sky as he is pushed up and up. The large teenager is not pleased by such a thing - not that he has such a way to complain about it, currently being bounced around!

The assault ends as quickly as it begins, and Gan begins his response by falling from the sky.

This isn't a bad thing, but it could be for Nataya! From the sky, Gan manages, even if so heavily wounded by the assault, and how caught offguard he was, the larger student of Gedo rights himself within the air, as he falls. "Hahahha! Now that's more like it!"

"But you gave me something.. and I'll make use of it!" Said the flying teen.

From within the air, Gan begins to descend, faster and faster, legs leading downwards, chi enveloping them as he passes closer and closer towards the ground, before slamming hard into it, sandals crashing against the ground, an eruption of chi following it.

Gan              1/---====/=======|==-----\-------\0           Nataya

As powerful as Gan is, once Nataya's gained her bearings, she's able to properly deal with such a crushing assault. The energy blast and physical explosion smashes against her defenses and she's forced to back up, allowing some of the shockwave to roll over her for some level of damage.

Her feet scrape across the ground as she pulls herself forward. She steps faster, then breaks into a run, attempting to close the gap between her and her opponent, the clouds following behind her, boiling up around like a pack of dutiful attack dogs, glowing bead 'eyes' glittering in the clouds as it attempts to keep up with its owner.

The damage is pretty clear. Nataya's going to be suffering some horrible bruises tomorrow, but she's seemed to have kept a calmness about her, still presenting the very same smile she had when the fight first started.

Then she leaps. She hops up over Gan, whipping through the air as a delicate energy based thread ropes around the larger man, strung together by those beads. If she can manage to snag Gan by a limb, Gan will find that the 'string' is connected to Nataya's ankle. She'll then go into a series of roundhouse kick motions, smashing Gan into the ground over and over again with each spinning 'kick' before hurling him away with a flick of her foot.

COMBATSYS: Gan Toughs Out Nataya's Three Marks!

Gan              1/-======/=======|===----\-------\0           Nataya

Gan lands, the giant doing whatever he can to stay up - and as Nataya is forced to back up, Gan has a chance to get his own bearings, and as she is forced backwards, Gan pushes forwards, glancing at Nataya, waiting, and she comes. She steps forwards, breaking into a run, closing the gap, the clouds following her and growing in size, in shape, and in mass. This doesn't stop Gan from advancing himself, step after step as he pulls himself closer. Her eyes glittering about, the beads also noticed.

Gan is beaten, but the boy is still up in the fight. No matter what energies she is capable, he is not one to let up. He is not one to give up. He is not one to give up, no matter what the circumstances. Never hold back. That is was the Don had said.

Nataya pulls closer, whipping through the air, whipping on the delicate energy, pulling closer, snagging Gan - and as she slams her foot against Gan, it strikes - foot after foot.

Gan allows himself to be pulled, but after a few strikes, both his arms break from the string, pulling outwards, lurching to grasp Nataya from the air. "Haha! You're a fighter.. it's been a nice fight..... and it's been an honor."

"But I'm not holding back." Both arms aim to grab Nataya, swinging her through the air, faster and faster, whipping her around, whirling her faster and faster, like a helicopter, before suddenly inverting the spin, and smashing her towards the ground in a spike. "RAAARGH!"

COMBATSYS: Gan successfully hits Nataya with Helicopter Smash.

Gan              0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0           Nataya


The sound of bone against pavement echoes through the school as Gan smashes Nataya clean into the ground. There was no real way to escape that attack at this point. All Nataya can do is brace for impact.

But the small woman seems to be made of tougher stuff than she appears. As she hits the ground, the clouds suddenly seem to coalesce around her, providing a cushion for the impact. It doesn't nullyfy all the damage, but it does a considerable amount of damage absorbsion. At least enough to keep Nataya in the fight for a little bit longer.

But is it enough? Gan's doing better than her thanks to his early lead, and now she's stuck trying to catch her breath despite the considerable physical pain she's in. She's been in tight spots before, granted, but fighting back out from under them is something entirely different.

The beads leap into the air again, the clouds whirling after them as she raises her hands. Gan's forcing her to put all her special techniques to the limit and then some. She closes her eyes, guiding them by memory as she once again waves them into a tight net, attempting to envelop Gan once more and bring the lumbering teen to the ground with a blast of energy!

COMBATSYS: Nataya successfully hits Gan with Five Precepts.

As she slams against the ground, Gan continues to push onwards- and as the beads leap once more, she's struck, over and over by them, enveloping him, taking him to the ground in a blast of energy - but he doesn't seem to be giving up, even as the energy swallows him. The clouds swell about him, swirling, spreading out, but the teenager doesn't let up.

"Fighting from a distance... and using such energy tricks.. Hahah!" The teenager, despite visibly pained, seems to - not really mind for some reason.

"It's keeping me on the edge ... but that isn't going to stop me .. from doing everything I can! I'm not out of this fight .. UNTIL I GIVE UP!" The giant breaks from the net of energy, smashing forwards, bringing fists backwards as he smashes them forwards, faster and faster, chi enveloping his hands as they strike once again and again, over and over, attempting to slam into the monk.

He moves with speed for his size, and his wounds, and despite being pushed backwards so simply.

"You aren't .. going to get an easy time .. no matter what tricks you use!"

"I wouldn't give the Don any LESS!"

COMBATSYS: Gan successfully hits Nataya with Super Gun Stabbing.

Gan              0/-------/------=|=======\======-\1           Nataya

Easy time? Nataya never goes into a fight expecting that. Nevertheless, there's fights that are easier than others. Most people are just more experienced than she is in combat. The end result is that she tends to face opponents stronger and more skilled.

Then again, even when that's the case, Nataya doesn't get put down without causing some worry on the opponent's part.

But that doesn't address the incoming Gan. The huge teenager's hands smash into her, crashing through her defenses like the Kool-Aid man through a brick wall. Each blow is a tooth rattling, bone crunching affair that pretty much takes Nataya down for the count.


She crumbles to the ground, clearly not capable of doing anything else, but the energy surge from her is desperately trying to make one last go at the matter. Without any guidance, the attack is shaky, chaotic and unfocused. Beads hover into the air in a maddening dance, fusing together in a strange, misshapen sphere that drunkenly rushes down towards Gan. If it connects... then it's just going to be all kinds of bad news for the teen.

COMBATSYS: Nataya can no longer fight.

The sphere strikes the massive boy and unleashes a torrent of energy and beads that rocket out like being at ground zero of a claymore mine. The torrential power blasts outward, cratering the ground.

But then it gets even worse. The beads hover around Gan, and then start to revolve around him as if he was a sun to their solar system. They begin to glow brightly. Like tiny spacecraft strafing a mothership, the beads lance out with pinpricks of energy. Each blast isn't much on it's own, but with the massive swarm all firing in unison, the damage is considerable.

Then, having spent their energy reserves, the beads stop, clattering to the floor and withdrawing with the smoke as it seems to seep back into Nataya's body. The monk girl is pretty much still laying face down, completely out of it for the most part save for the occasional groan.

Striking, Gan is tired. Exhausted. He has given it his all, and in this fight, it has come down to this. There is little more he can do - the beads rising through the air, and fly towards him. He tries to move away, tries to push through them, and away.

It does not happen.

The beads instead sphere into him, the torrent of energy filling him, and the same energy he can't control and deal with - as the beats then begin to revolve before blasting him, over and over again, lancing him with such energy.

They clatter to the ground.

As does Gan, smouldering, as he falls backwards, collapsing against the ground and staring upwards. "Haha.. Now that .. will be practice.. that the Don would be proud of. There must .. be more fighters like this..."

He does not like causing violence.

But as a Gedo student, the accepted kind is perfectly.. acceptable.
