Neo League 826 - #848: Brett vs Naerose

Description: It's Brett Neuer's big Neo League Debut, on the foggy streets of London. His opponent? The strange, Red Witch, Naerose herself! It looks like Mr. Neuer is going to get a rude awakening to world-class fighting in the shadow of Big Ben! (Draw Match)

NL. In Briton. Naerose was totally game for some travel because she'd been watching food network and the BBC and that whole 'Kitchen Nightmares' show and 'The F word'. She loved food. She was sure she could get good food if she could only get a little bit of cash. Maybe winning a NL fight. So here she is. but before it starts, she needs to change the name. Naeo League.

"So who is my opponent?" The witch asks, adjusting her shades and her hat. Brett? That wasn't anyone the witch had ever heard of so with a scratch of her head she leans back a little against the railing, because this spectacle is to happen on the bridge of London. Er London bridges? Wait arn't they falling down?!

London Bridge isn't falling down, but apparently it's the perfect place for falling down, considering things. Brett had only gotten word of the match being organized himself and ended up taking the cheapest way into London he could find.

And finally? He was the middle of the cool London evening, surrounding by quite a few people eager to see a League fight go down. "Wow....a lot of people here..." he says, shaking his head as he tried to tighten up his helmet and get his nerves settled. "Mannn....never thought I'd be fighting like this....HEY! Wait...what should I say..... WHO WANTS TO SEE HOW A REAL HOCKEY PLAYER FIGHTS!!" he finally settles on shouting. "...oh god, that probably sounded stupid."

And up to this point, he hasn't even looked up to his opponent yet, still concerned about getting his war face on.

Are you serious? Wait, what is more silly, that Brett is bringing hockey to london, or that Naerose, the self proclaimed Red witch thinks that it is ridiculous. Then it occurs to her, having seen a few hockey matches, that hockey players sometimes beat the tar out of one another and here is a hockey player turned fighter. Come to think of it, the idea actually kind of made sense and in no time flat you have the woman slowly nodding her head in agreement, she can totally jive with this.

"Hey, I wanna see a real hockey player fight," Naerose cheers.

Brett turns his head, smiling as he hears the cheering response from nearby. "Really? Great! I..." And then...he realizes where...and comes from. "...huh? Wait....aren't you..." He quickly pats into his pocket, forced to unvelcro his glove's fingers to have the articulation to fish the photo out of his pocket. "'re my opponent, aren't you?"

Awww...and he hoped he had gotten someone interested in hockey.... " guess you don't have a choice really, do you?" he asks Nae, tilting his head to get a better look at her while grabbing the stick off his back. "I ready then?"

"I mean I guess not, but that doesn't mean I don't want to see a real hockey player , or a hockey player real f- or whatever it was you said, I'm totally a fan of hockey, I used to play street hockey with broom sticks when I was younger, infact, watch this, I'm going to show you my best check!" Naerose says with a big grin and tries to 'check' Brett, though it is more of a shove and actually appears to be a cross check.

"Alright lets see that hockey!"

Dumbfounded, the NL staff say, "Okay, I guess you can start."

COMBATSYS: Brett blocks Naerose's Armed Combo.

Naerose          0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0            Brett

The hockey player sighs, shaking his head and trying to get his nerves down again, readying to get in the game. He taps his stick idly, trying to go through his usual pre-fight ritual. "Nhh...hnnnnmm...." Opening his eyes, he's ready to bring that stick a final time....before he suddenly ends up shoved at by Naerose. "Gah!!" Bringing his stick up, he manages to get it up in time to take the cross check, even if his distraction pushes him back on his wheels a little. "Nhh..." Well, that's a wake up call for him. Make sure to keep aware at all times otherwise you get a broom to the face...lesson learned.

Eyes are hard set now, the boy frowning and quickly swinging his stick up to hook around behind Naerose's neck...and tugging down, trying to yank her down face first into the street of the bridge, as his own little wakeup call.

COMBATSYS: Naerose blocks Brett's King's End.

"Is that how a hockey player fought?" Naerose asks, looking a touch confused and scratching her head a little, maenwhile her broom is up, then as Brett starts to manipulate her position, she twists to free herself from getting slammed or otherwise hurt. WEll, too much anyway. "Hey not bad, " Naerose states with a big thumbs up, "But is slashing allowed? Cause I'm totally awesome at that." Which naerose follows up with aforementioned slashing, the power put behind her broom clearly intended to make it costly for Brett to just try to out mass this attack.

COMBATSYS: Brett fails to interrupt Crushing Strike from Naerose with Hurricane Check EX.
? Strange Hit! ?

Naerose          0/-------/------=|=====--\-------\0            Brett

If she really wanted to see something, Brett could very well do just that. While he couldn't get the hook on completely and slam her down, he at least did something in forcing her to wrench out like that. He wasn't about to chat it up though....too focused on getting into the fight.

Too bad he's still a bit green, as shown by his haste in pushing in when the slashing broom comes out and trying to charge in with his own fierce strike. An elbow comes up....but is stopped when the broom slams into Brett's face before he can get too far, forcing him back and prompting him to clutch at his bloody nose with a gloved hand. Now what the hell was that?

"Umm, are you okay over there?" Naerose asks and reaches out to poke and prod Brett with her broomstick. This isn't really doing anything but buying time for herself, keeping distance and poking. A small punishment for his missed opportunity. As if the last failed attack didn't happen, yet giving Naerose a little more, almost assured advantage. Did she really think all of this or was this just a chance attack? Hard to say. But either way Naerose makes her attempt at prodding Brett.

COMBATSYS: Naerose successfully hits Brett with Weapon Jab.

This wasn't looking terribly good for Brett at this point, nose gushing from the strike to his face. And the prodding at him...well, it wasn't helping. In fact, it was poking him in all the wrong places, stuff not covered by padding or anything, and hitting bone and other pressure points. "NHHGhn!!" he grunts, hissing in pain as he tried to straighten up. Well, he's at a bad distance now too....

Guess the only thing he can do is slapshot. And while he doesn't seem to have much that'd help him at this distance, the stick is brought up anyways, and snapped across the create a blue arc of curling chi racing across the ground toward Nae? Since when did they teach that in hockey camp?

COMBATSYS: Brett successfully hits Naerose with Shark Crest.

Naerose          0/-------/-----==|======-\-------\0            Brett

Now THAT was real hockey, and Naerose, she was the goal. Her broom was the goalie and getting tired of the anology, she gets nailed and eats puck, but not real puck, seems to be a chi puck. If someone had said 'eat that' she might of said, okay, but it was a fast moving attack and Naerose knew that it would hurt, even if she took it on purpose. "Hey, nice! IS that real hockey fighting? I totally love it." The witch gives a big thubs up after recovering and starts toward Brett, hoping not to eat more puck. "Lets see how you take this!" And Naerose lunges, trying to get real range with her broom stick at clobbering Brett on the head.

COMBATSYS: Naerose successfully hits Brett with Power Strike.
-**- LUNATIC HIT!! -**-

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

Well, this wasn't good at all. This wasn't good AT ALL. While he gave himself some time to approach behind the Shark Crest, Brett had no idea the danger he was plowing into. Coming closer, he ends up skating....straight into yet ANOTHER slam of the broom straight into his head. But...not so much his head, as it was the side of his head, enough to compact his helmet and drive into his temple, sending him lurching side over to a crashing heap on the ground. Not even so much time for a grunt of pain.

Rolling with momentum, he stops only against the railing of the bridge, groaning as he tried to pull himself up with one hand. His other held his stick, the thing stuck out as he tried to find something hook onto again. Which...just happened to be Naerose. "No...can't....stop here..." he groans....before trying to yank hard onto the witch to pull her closer, and short dashing off his skates at the same time with the intent to drive an elbow full speed straight into her face.

COMBATSYS: Brett successfully hits Naerose with Sir Stanley's Crush.

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

Well that one hit her. Naerose coudn't deny that Sir Stanley had a serious crush and it seems to be on her. IT would be enough to make a witch rosy cheeked, and does! Rosy with hurt instead of romance and stuff. Nae wasn't really romantic anyway. So takig the elow full on to the face was .. well..jarring. It sent Naerose back a few paces and tumbling. While she might love to say something, like, ouch, or hey stop! It is over before she knows what hit her.

"Er.. ouch." Naerose says, which rubbing her jaw, then takes one look at Brett. "You know what? Er. . I think I've seen enough hockey today." And then sticking her palm out, Naerose shouts, "En Criento!" before exploding fourth a blast of pure damage energy.

COMBATSYS: Brett endures Naerose's End Creation.

Naerose          1/------=/=======|=======\-------\1            Brett

Brett really didn't have a choice here. It was kill or be killed, and with that big elbow, he had gotten SOME kind of momentum back, not to mention send a message that he wasn't going down THAT easily. Teeth gritted as the world hazed around him, he tried to get his vision straightened out long enough to charge in toward Nae again. When her palm sticks out, and energy shoots out into him, he narrows his eyes...and keeps charging.

The blast manages to stop him a little....but it doesn't force him back, at least not enough to keep him out of range as his stick is raised high, the weapon whirring and spinning over his head like a helicopter blade before it's brought down to chop and spin into Naerose...hopefully.

COMBATSYS: Brett successfully hits Naerose with Blackhawk Down.

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

It was amazing what just a couple of attacks could do to really even things out, but then again even with the evening factor of two attacks there was the whiplash, every action.. equal and opposite. Really and truly Naerose expected Brett to be halted somewhere in those attacks and never imagined for a moment he would make it all the way through the attack. So she's a little surprised to so him spinning through it and only just has time to say, "Wait, that is so not a hockey move, " before getting nailed and nailed and nailed. Ths is one of those combo attacks right? Well it hurts and Naerose is forced to pick herself up after lett out a "NO!" to getting hit, as if saying she'd rather not get hit would change anything - well she could always just give up.

"Ouch, oh man," Naerose states, "I think er, I'm better at witch craft than hockey. I'll leave that to the pros." Then hoping onto her broomstick, Naerose shoots through the air at Brett, tries to drag him along, pulls upward and if this much has somehow worked, Naerose will drop him from a short ways up. Since what comes up must come down, she'ld probably try to land on him too.

COMBATSYS: Naerose successfully hits Brett with Aquila Charge.

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

Unfortunately for Brett, forward is the only direction he can move, on his own. So when Naerose tries to grab him, he doesn't have many options to avoid actually getting snatched up. HIs momentum is the only thing keeping him on his feet after all. And even then, it's not enough when Nae pulls him up...and then drops him back down, followed by her own slam. Really, that's about all she wrote, but determination is a strong motivator.

Enough that despite not being able to get up, Brett grabs up toward Nae, trying to grab her in a hockey-style clinch before she pulls away from him and elbow, elbow, elbow, and just ELBOW her in the face repeatedly as much as he can before finally swinging the butt end of his stick up...and passing out. All she wrote, right?

COMBATSYS: Brett can no longer fight.

COMBATSYS: Brett successfully hits Naerose with Broad Street Barrage.

Naerose          1/------=/=======|

But rising, Brett manages to grab Nae cause lets face it, she is sure he is down and the sudden attack of elbows is surprising, to say the least. Naerose can't believe what is happening to her. She's just getting hit over and over and , at first she's like, "Stoppit, " but then she's like, @ @ cause he just keeps going and thats got to hurt. Finally she's staggering and as much as she's like to hit back or something, he's down right, so what is her face..? Her only choice is to go down with the attack.. And down she goes. Somehow this ended up going evenly with a total double ko

COMBATSYS: Naerose takes no action.

COMBATSYS: Naerose can no longer fight.

And thus....the League officials have no choice but to call it a draw, a few polite claps from the crowd as medics attend to both.

At the very least, at least Brett managed to leave an impression, even he had quite the harsh introduction to League fighting...
