Even though one of the most fascinating men you've ever met is escorting you out of the craziest mansion you've ever dreamed of, every alarm-bell and warning sign in your body is going off all at once and about the only thing keeping yourself together (Or at least from crying again and ruining what's left of the make-up on your face) is the fact that you're focusing on the sound of your heels and the dress-shoes of one Jean-Claude Gabriel click-clacking in lock-step.Honestly, how could this day get any worse? You had a nightmare about some masked motherfucker trying to jump your bones while completely incapacitated in a mess of bandages & needles sticking out of you, hid from your old Sensei at a donut shop out of having to answer questions about where the hell you've been, got into it with his daughter over the "G-Mantle Lady Incident" and felt so disgusted at how the founder of the Martial Art you've been taking classes for is pimping out his legacy for awful Fast Food and a downright ridiculous "Kyokugen style" promotional video that you resolved to quit.And now... Now every perception you had about yourself, from your early life in Australia, to your parents, to why you even exist on this earth, has been shattered into a million pieces in less than an hour's worth of questioning. Hell, the name on your Driver's License might read "Katja Hartkern", but as far as you're concerned you're a fucking nameless golem right now and it feels like the cherry on top of sundae made of shit that life is shoveling in front of you... And yet, there's a bizarrely calming effect coming to terms with how royally screwed your life is right now. If anything, you're just waiting on the other shoe to drop as you and Jean walk out into the afternoon light."My regular driver is waiting for you" Jean says in almost absent-minded tone as the two of you walk down a big set of marble steps. "He'll take you anywhere you want to go.">A. "But I have nowhere to go...">B. Silently nod and let some more tears out. You need to have another sook before you can get on with the rest of the day.>C. "No thanks, I think I'll just walk.">D. Write-In Vote.>E. Roll 1d20 and ask "You're going to total a car just to get rid of a nobody like lil' ole' me?" (Only the best of 3 rolls will count)
>>693636>>>C. "No thanks, I think I'll just walk."Do a thinking-walk. Come to grips with our new reality, gain a new perspective and use it to increase our inner strength.
>>693644Going with this if there aren't any more votes soon.
>>693660Maybe walking means a random encounter which can distract us from our red-pill knowledge - punch them till we feel better.
Updates feel like they're slow-going for me today. Sorry Anons.>>693644>>693671"No thanks, I think I'll just walk."Jean looks at you with a face that suggests that you insulted him by saying that, but doesn't say anything."What? I brought my extra set of clothes with me so these won't get trashed... and I always feel good being out in the wilderness like this" you explain with a shrug of your shoulders.Jean nods, then lets his hand rest on your shoulder. "If you need me, just give me a call alright?"You nod, Jean's Blue eyes oddly piercing & welcoming at the same time before he turns on his heels and walks back up the steps, a small army of PAs probably feeding him information about what the rest of his gargantuan business empire is doing."Well shit, guess I better get a move on. It'll be dark in a few hours." You start following a long, brick-laden driveway that leads to an imposing set of gates, the security guards opening them up with a loud, thundering mechanical sound "Fuck me, they sound like the gates of hell." You give a quick nod to each of them, then start to head due South, tears streaming down your cheeks. You flip on a pair of cheap sunglasses you bought at the mall in East Side Park and just... Well, not exactly think, but let the weight that was on your shoulders from all of the hazy parts of your past re-adjust to sit squarely on your head with each passing step, Jean's words about how your memories are "The ones your parents wanted you to have" haunting you."Well, I'm 25 now... Or at least I think I am." You pause at that thought and nearly stop in your tracks as that idea runs wild in your mind. "Goddamn it, what's fucking real in my life and what's fake? Did I just wake up some day with all of this shit built in and... Fuck, that's right, I did."You find a wooded area to change your clothes in and in record time are out of the stuff you bought at the mall and into your rank-as-all-hell jeans, T-Shirt & boots, your bag being clutched hard next to your hip almost like a newborn baby's basket... Then take off your sunglasses to wipe your eyes clean and are taken back by the sounds you hear of nature all around you. How odd that a "Girl from Antarctica" like yourself is so attached to nature when you are anything but of god's green earth... "Well, I fucking hated where my life was going anyway... And I feel like I'm getting too old for the shit I put up with."There's a good thought in there somewhere in your mind, so you hold it and feel the tears start to dry up. But there's something missing; Like the revelation isn't grand enough for your ego to accept...>A. "I need to be friendlier, more open... No, actually be the open person I pretend to be.">B.

>>693737"Just According to Keikaku" ~ Anonymous[Translators' Note: "Keikaku" means "Plan"]>>693726>>693733>>693735>MeanwhileJean-Claude Gabriel "I want that bitch tracked & followed immediately. If she so much as takes a bowel movement in the woods, I want a report on it."Just as you were about to have a life-changing moment of clarity, you hear what sounds like a gunshot out in the distance... Until it gets louder and louder, reminding you of something from far-off in your mind and making you wonder if it's some kind of tree-clearing bulldozer or truck or something, then stop when you realize what it is. "Hang on... That's the sound Ki rippling through the ground."You roll off to one side expecting a ground-skimming projectile to fly past you, but none arrives, though you hear the birds chattering and see some small animals running away from whatever it was that caused the commotion. "From the east? OK."You follow the retreating critters and find yourself near the cause of all of the commotion, the sound of somebody doing training drills/Katas. "I think I'll wait for a sec before I head out and great the poor bastard." You get your body loose with a little bit of your stretches, Ki unlike anything you've ever felt before starting to flow through you before you hear the guy(?) on the other side of the brush stop and start to breathe heavily. You close your eyes and take a bracing breath of your own, thoughts of betrayal and imagery of your burning all of your fake mementos and things reminding your of your "Not-Parents", then emerge from the other side of a Blackberry bush into a clearing to find that your opponent is...?>A. An Undefeated Kung-Fu Master in a Qipao.>B. Some smelly-looking old bum in a stained & ripped Karate Gi, flies surrounding him.>C. Some dude that looked like he stepped off the set of "Crazy Carl 2: Legend of Lighting Colosseum".>D.

>>693778I fucked that up hard, goddamn it.===>Meanwhile...Jean-Claude Gabriel sat in his office, cool as a cucumber to the untrained eye. On the inside, however, he was seething. "A tough nut to crack, that one... Just like her mother. Ah well, can't win them all... But it's a good start"Jean hit the intercom link on his desk and the vision of his long-suffering butler appeared before him. "Yes, sir?""I want that bitch tracked & followed immediately. If she so much as takes a bowel movement in the woods, I want a report on it" Jean thundered, rage beyond his years in his voice."Very good sir."===>Elsewhere...Fixed.

>>693866>>693867"A Kickboxer with goofy hair & too-short shorts? OK then." You spot a heavy-bag dressed up like an Aikido grandmaster hanging from a sturdy branch of a huge Redwood Tree off to your right and take a good look at the guy in front of you; Kind of lean, but definitely strong and capable of being something like The King of Fighters... Also, his shorts don't leave much to the imagination and it makes you briefly ponder why nobody gets down on guys wearing next-to-nothing in fighting tournaments."Huh, and what's this? A cute girl to give me some company?" the guy asks, the leer he has just a touch uncomfortable to your eye. "Want an autograph? I happen to always carry some 8x10s in my bag...""Try anything and I'll break yer'bloody face, mate." "Maybe...""You got some muscle on you though... You fight?" The short-shorts guy asks."A little... Why, you wanna go?""Aw come on, do I really look like the kind of guy that hits girls for fun? Besides, no one alive can top me!" he roars before dropping to his knees and shouting "I'm the best damn kickboxing champion in the world!""And here I thought I was gonna meet somebody cool..." You drop your bag off to the side and start cracking your neck and shoulders, the Kickboxer giving you a funny look as he gets back up."You're not gonna take no for an answer, huh?

>>693960>>693968>>693997>>693997"I'dunno, A friendly sparring match would be nice... Feels like I've only gone up against Judokas & Karatekas lately" you fib while getting into a relaxed version of your "Old" stance.New Thread Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3irPAEYbbHwThe kickboxer grins, then focused his full attention on you. You do the same and take a kind of experimental step to his right and noted that "Joe" (Or at least that's what you think the name on his shorts reads) did the same, the two of you circling each other, keeping the same distance between one another before "Joe" seemingly gets impatient.He slammed one fist into the palm of his hand and then pointed at you while saying "Sakusaku ikuzei" ("Let's do this quickly!").You couldn't help but snort at him for that remark. Frankly, you don't care one way or the other if this was over quickly or not; You chose to fight "Joe" because you've got a lot of internal baggage to clean out and his fighting style is unfamiliar to you. Your goal is improvement and advancement in more ways than one; Time is immaterial at this junction.You don't respond to his little taunt right away, and it's good that you didn't because Joe rushes in with his knee out in a fast kick that you don't quite manage to avoid, the blow grazing you across the side of your pelvic bone. "Fuck, that might've hit right in the fanny if I wasn't more careful..."[/i You spin around and deal a backhanded smack to the side of Joe's head, startling the kick-boxer enough to get in a second punch before hopping backwards to chuck out a quick "Ko'ouken".Joe easily blocks it though and jumps in over your second one with a jumping heel kick, though you easily break his follow-up attempt at a grab and hit him with a quick 'Right Straight/Left Hook/Strayacut" combination that knocks him on his ass, that dark feeling from "Karuta" rising up from within again."Not bad! Didn't take you for a Kyokugen chick... Ok, try this!" Joe yells before he seemed to deal an upper-cut punch to the air in front of him, but no sooner were you confused by this action than your confusion turned to horror when you realized that a miniature tornado was now heading straight for you.>(Roll 3d20 with each vote)>A.

>>694147>>694135"Holy shit!" You quickly throw your arms up to attempt to block the on-coming natural disaster, but fake the block and try roll past the incoming tornado. Unfortunately, it clips you right as you get up out of the roll and knocks you backwards against the Berry Bushes, a brief thought of possibly being crushed under the air pressure flashing through your mind. But no sooner had this occurred to you than the domestic tornado was gone in an instant, like dust in the wind."Hurricane my ass, that was nothing." You gaze across the clearing back at Joe, who's posturing like a peacock at you."You like that?" The Thai boxer shouted, probably thinking that you were going to give up after seeing that display of power."Yeah. Now let me show you somethin'."You steady yourself, then run in on Joe and hit him with the Hien Shippu Kyaku, Joe rolling back to his feet only to get clipped by a stronger "Strayacut", a bright bolt of electricity trailing your fists and a "Buzzing" sensation in your arms."Whoa... Feels totally different now." You stop to admire the sensation of the electricity-infused Ki in your arms, only to nearly get hit by Joe's get-up rising knee. You easily block it though and chuck him into the ground with a Ippon Seoinage. Joe quickly gets back yo his feet and blocked your short-range "Ko'uoken" and countered by landing a repeating combination of punches not unlike your take on Kyokugenryuu's "Zanretsuken", though you're able to back away when he pauses and tries to do some kind of overhead elbow and land your Ude-Hishigi-Juji-Gatame on him easily."Had enough?" you grunt as you wriggle around with him on the ground, kicking up dust."What, are you kiddin'? I could go all night!" he yells as he breaks out of your hold and rolled forward. You quickly got up to your feet and initially thought he was gonna go for an upper cut but the kick-boxer stopped short and instead of dealing a punch, lashed out with another kick, the heal of his foot catching you in the shoulder. It staggered you back long enough that he looked to land another throw, but once more you break out of it and hit him with a "Super Kick"."Heh... You're pretty good" He said while getting back up and wiping a bit of blood from the side of his mouth. "I just might get my full work out today!" "He must have bit the inside of his cheek... Or he's really all bark & no bite, because what the hell, he can't be that hurt this quickly...?">(Roll 3d20 with each vote)>A.

Had an early dinner. Sorry for the delay Anons.>>694319>>694332>>694405You take a moment to readjust yourself and find that "Joe" has done a number on you; In fact, you have to stop yourself from shrieking out in pain when you feel a little "Off" trying to hit Joe with your own "Zanretsuken" punches, quickly missing a few hits before Joe finally grabbed and started landing knee shots up close to your stomach & chest. The last hit had enough force to knock you flat on your back and you scrambled to roll a few inches away from him before regaining your footing. Curiously, it was only after you were standing again that the Muay-Thai boxer continued his onslaught. "So, he's a real sportsman after all huh? How nice of him." One thing's for sure, this "Joe Higashi" guy is wicked fast and strong to boot and though you're able to block the majority of the kick-boxer's punches, some were still getting through to your face, shoulders or collar-bone and the ones that didn't still hurt your forearms like no other when he blocked them. In your haste to get back up and look for the opening you need to end this fight, you allowed yourself to be backed into a corner (Specifically, the tree where Joe's heavybag was hanging) and now you had to get out of it."Fu~uck, where's the opening? ...THERE!" You drop to your knees and get out of the immediate line of punches, hearing a pleasing sound of Joe Higashi's fist colliding hard with the trunk of the tree followed by a tirade of cursing in Japanese. You rolled forward and pass between the kick-boxer's legs and come up behind him with a tap on the shoulder."Need a hand?" you ask before kicking him and landing "The Stun-Gun Stinger", Joe nearly knocking himself back into the tree.You feel the sting of the pain in your body, the slight swelling on your knuckles & feet, the Ki rebbing & flowing within you... And yet, mentally, you still don't feel anything and fighting this guy could frankly be construed as a waste of time... Until you hear Joe wake up from his little "Nap"."Oh damn... All the years I've been coming here to train and you're the first to give me a real challenge" he says, his voice sounding clearer as he uses the tree to get up. "Yeah?" you reply, not really sounding all that interested.Joe nods, looking like you did't do any damage to him at all as he heads towards you. "Now back in Thailand… Back there people know how to fight! I'd almost given-up on finding decent opponents out here in America outside of Terry & Andy.""He's friends with the Bogard Brothers? ...

>>694594>>A. "Thanks... But, I got to get goin'."
>>694610>>694618"... Nah, not my type." You turn around and simply say "Thanks... But, I got to get goin" before you head back through the woods."What, no names? No phone numbers?" Joe asks incredulously."I'm not ready to bring anybody on the path I'm walking" you reply without even turning around before making your way past the clearing and head through the underbrush of the expansive forest that makes up a lot of South Town's Northern areas. "I just hope I don't stumble on some hick's backwoods weed farm or meth lab or whatever the fuck normal people do out in the boonies..."Fortunately for you, the walk through the trees is largely uneventful, though the aches & pains that your adrenaline masked during your fight with Joe are burning with pain by the time you stop in at a gas station on a lonely, lonesome highway.You quietly slip into the unisex bathroom and change back into your clean clothes, the clerk at the counter barely noticing you walk by and ring the service bell. You buy a stick of gum to try and not look like a transient or something and catch yourself doing a double-take at how much money you've spent today. "Well shit... I've got to get my finances in order when I get back to the house."You head back outside, the sun starting to set and giving everything an eerie, dusty glow as you check your phone for any messages. Curiously, no one's tried to call you, but your phone's almost dead and god knows how much money a cab could ring up getting you back home...

Ellie probably already told her dad about me ad what I might've done... Only other real numbers I have are from a job I haven't been working at in over a week or are a bunch of "Do Nothing Bitches" that never cared for me to begin with..." After going through all of your conceivable options, you go for the "Hail Mary" play and decide to call up Tatsuya; He always would have your back in class...After too many busy tone rings for your liking, somebody finally picks up, but you're pretty sure it's not your soon-to-be-former Sensei. "Hello?""Yeah, is this Tatsuya's place?""Yeah, who's this?""Kat."There's a pause on the other end of the line, then a reply that makes your heart sink. "Tatsuya's not in right now.""Then who the bloody hell am I talkin' to?""Adam."You bite your tongue and hold back the urge to yell out in frustration at your bad luck. Of course Ellie's beau and Tatsuya's greatest student would be in town or watching over his place while the big ole' lug is out of town... But, Adam seems to pick up that something's not right and asks "What's up?""I don't know anymore... I'm fuckin' lost out in the middle of bloody nowhere, I've got no ride back into town, my car's been missing for almost two whole weeks, god knows where my 'bike is, I'm almost out of money-""OK, OK, cool it! Jeesh...""Come on, you're a fucking adul... No, actually, I'm probably not..." You hem and haw over the phone for just a touch too long, Adam on the other end getting a little impatient with you. "Listen, I would help you out but Ellie's at some charity gig tonight and I'm sick and stuck back at the house. Sorry."You manage to get in a quick "Hope you get better" before he hangs up, then use the last amount of battery life your phone has left to call up Kazahaya. ""Candy Man. How can I fill your fix for sweets today?""Kock off the cute shit Wind, it's me."There's a pause on the other end, Kazahaya clearing out his throat before replying "Oh shit, sorry for that; I was expecting somebody else...""Yeah, sure you would..." "Listen, I'm stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no way to at least get back to my house Wind. You got to help me out.""Well shit, how far are you out of town?""I'm stuck at this...

You let out a sigh, mostly about your day has gone more than talking to Kazahaya, then ask "OK, what do I have to do to make worth your while?""Rough day, huh?""You wouldn't believe me if I told you."There's a pause and some kind of chuckling on Kazahaya's end, but you cut it short by stating "Come on mate, make it snappy! My phone's almost dead... Oh yeah, and nothing sexaul alt=right? I'm not in the fucking mood.""Just like my last three girlfriends" Kazahaya quips, then gets down to what he wants you to do.

It's a Round-Robin Tournament, so you have a margin of error to fuck up, but I've got people interested in getting in on the action and would like to get some odds for their money" Kazahaya intones, that silky-smooth lilt he gets when talking about money inflecting his voice. >A.

>>695171>>695191>Updates Resume"I'll have to think about it... Can I call you back in like an hour or something? I haven't had much to eat today and you know how I hate making big decisions on an empty stomach Kaz" you reply, the smells from that diner starting to make your mind drift off and cloud your mind."Yeah, it's cool. My main tournament ain't gonna start until like 9 or so, so try to get on it before then OK?"Kazahaya hangs up on you before you can get in a "Take care" or something like that, so you turn off your phone to conserve what's left of its battery and make your way inside the diner attached to the back of the Gas Station you were just in... And immediately feel like you found a wormhole that sent you back in time to the 1950's, or at the very least wandered on the set of some new Hollywood blockbuster set in that period. Looking around the place, you're struck by the attention to detail; The waiters and waitresses were outfitted in 1950’s-correct outfits, the booth you take a seat in feeling comfier than just about anything, high tables, a long bar... And the menu? Shit, you're drooling just looking over the names of what this place has (No photos of the food either; Places that usually do that are either low-rent or run by dumbasses). You ultimately get a Classic bacon cheeseburger with some Onion Rings and a Malt (Because why the fuck not?), then get the creeping feeling of helplessness and dread from earlier as you lay back in the booth."... So... NESTS artificially shoved their moral code, experiences, thoughts and values into my brain... Should I still be bound to them? Am I free? Was I always free to do as I please? ... Or should I start submitting others like I did with "Tsunami Tsuyako", make them my henchmen and create my own gang to make this city right?"It's an unsettling thought. As much as you enjoy fighting, you never really considered yourself a career criminal; The few times you helped Kazahaya's "Waifus" out made you feel uneasy afterwards and you were having second thoughts all throughout the night you went all-in and started to bust up local dojos for Kazahaya's higher-ups... Your food arrives before you can really explore it more and you munch on it in quiet, the people that were there when you had arrived starting to leave."... Fuck, what about all of the stuff I'm hanging on to that's supposed to remind me of my parents? How fake is all of that shit? ... Fuck it, I'll have time to sort it out. I got to call back Kazahaya before he gets caught up in something else and forgets about me...">A. Call up Kazahaya and Accept his offer to compete in that Underground Fighting Tournament.>B.

>>696683>>696688You feel like you're inhaling your food for a second, but calm down and ask the waitress if they have a phone you can use. You get lead to the back wall (Near a collection of framed snapshots of 1950's movie stars & starlets) and call up "The Wind"."That was quick... How was your meal?" he asks, the club he owns sounding like it's really "Jumping" tonight on the other-end."Not the worst I've ever had..." you start to say, then take a pause to take a breath. "I'm in.""Yeah?""Hell yeah motherfucker.""Bitchin. I'll send one of my guys over to collect you" he says before hanging up."OK then... I'll chalk this up as my last night of eating whatever, because tomorrow I've got to start training again."You thank the waitress for your time, tell her that you'll be staying for a few until your ride gets here and watch the sun finally set in the window next to your booth, fitfully making your malt (Which, on second taste, isn't as good as you thought it was) last. Just at dusk a snazzy black sportscar with pop-up headlights drives up, part of you feeling like you've seen that car at Dave's garage up on jacks near South Town's "Bay Area"."Right in the nick of time too... The guy behind the counter was giving me the "You can leave now" look." You grab your bag with your dirty clothes inside and leave a generous tip behind before your walk out to great your driver... Who, surprisingly, is the same guy in the wrestling mask from when you needed a lift over down at Duck King's place in Port Downtown."Nice car" you hear yourself say as you hop in and your driver silent does up a "Five-Point Harnesses" you've seen real race cars have. "Is it yours?"The Lucha-driver shakes his head as he slinks into his seat and does up his belts before casually putting it in gear and sending the two of you off. Once again the feeling of calm and serenity from when you let this guy drive you around in your Porsche, though judging from the fact he's in his full-on wrestling gear he's probably got to be in that "Kazahaya Underground" thing going on tonight. "Why's the rear-view mirror broken though?""Because all it does... Is show the past" your "Lucha-Driver" says in an odd, kind of dark voice, almost like he's trying to hide his real one. "Yeah right... And I bet his age is "36... Caliber!" Before you can make a quip about his reply, the "Lucha-Driver" opens the car up and shifts up a gear, the slumbering dragon of an engine that feels like is right behind your head roaring into life.>A. Ask him to slow down a little; He's starting to scare you.>B. Let the guy go and do his thing; You trust his judgement, even with that mask on.>C.

>>696757>>696776>>696733"I thought it was because you don't have to worry about what's behind you?" you ask, part of you wondering if it really is the same guy underneath the mask driving you."... Well, that's a good reason too" he again says with that faux-gruff voice."Where have I heard him before...?" you think, but settle in as the sound of some high-revving, multiple-cylinder engine screams right behind your ears; Not exactly a bad sound to listen too on a night like this, but not what you were expecting as you try not to look at how the speedometer continues to climb. "You're pretty chatty tonight too..."The "Lucha-Driver" pauses, then admits "Well, I only talk to people I like" before finally slowing down to stop in time for a stoplight at a 4-way intersection."Yeah, it's not the same guy at all" your mind concludes as you watch a lone bicyclist pass by like a cartoonish tumbleweed. "He's a lot slimmer & lankier too..." you think as the light turns green and he punches the throttle again, the sound of tires screeching and the smell of smoke faintly entering the cabin.>A. Ask the driver if Kazahaya said anything about you fighting in his club's tournament tonight; Something smells fishy about how fast he's been driving...>B.

>>696886>>696878>>696928"What the hell, let's have some fun with this guy then..." you think as the bucket seat holds you in place and starts to contour to your backside as the "Lucha-Driver" next to you drives like a total hooligan. "Been working out, huh?" you ask aloud, hoping that the engine sounds aren't drowning you out.You get a silent nod and press on a little. "You're a lot slimmer and leaner than I remember...""Well... I have been cutting lately" he admits, the gruff voice starting to fade into something more natural-sounding as the lights of South Town's far-Northern suburbs start to come into view and "Lucha-Driver" finally starting to slow down."It shows."There's a silence that's not quite harsh, but not quite welcoming either as he makes a left onto the main highway you use to go to China Town, a sinking feeling in your gut rising up to your throat. You almost ask him to pull over so you can throw up, but it subsides when you hear him clear his throat and admit "I never liked wearing this thing" in the same voice you heard giving Dave shit at his garage."I knew it" you think, then ask "Hey, it's you... Andrew, was it?""Lucha-Driver" reluctantly nods as the South Town proper pops up into view, an oddly welcoming sight after being out in the wilderness and endless desert for most of the day. "Yeah... I usually have somebody else speak for me, like a manager or something.""Mind if you take off the mask?""Well... We're getting a little too close to China Town for that, but we can just talk I guess" he says, oddly sounding a little nervous being around you."Too bad... So, you're friends with Dave?""I've known him for a while.""What's with the big shop that's off-limits next to his garage?" you ask, genuinely curious as the architecture of China Town slowly starts to be visible in between a million stop-and-go traffic lights & intersections."Oh, that's just my race shop.""What do you run?"Andrew thinks about it for a second, then explains "A lot of stuff, actually... We're an officially-supported customer of TrackMagic Go-Karts at all levels aside from 250cc shifters, there's the Indycar program for the Month of May, some crazy Austrian guy is paying us to run him in some sprint-based sportscar series...""You don't drive?""Well, I'd like to, but my license is up in the air right now..." he says with a sigh, then admits "And I'm not getting any younger, so sooner or later I'm going to have to focus on the business side of things."You nod, then feel that sinking sensation again as Andrew drives up to the back of the parking lot of Kazahaya's club, "The Wind" himself out to greet the two of you. "Gotta get back into character" "Lucha-Driver" tells you, that "Trying to be Batman"-voice returning once again."About time you got here" you hear Kazahaya say, then add "Is she ready to go?">A.

>>697023Not quite, but it'll do.>>697013>>697016"Motherfuckers exploiting Posthumans like me like the scared human cis scum they are" you think in the kind of mocking voice you'd expect a "Social Justice Warrior" to use, then sigh and almost feel like crying at how true that might be. You close your eyes and try to find your spirit's still point and then delve into yourself to find the place where your Ki gathered. Over the years training in solitude and in the time you spent with Tatsuya, you had learned to do this much faster and with much greater control than most so it only took a few moments to clear your mind and get ready to throw down with a bunch of make-weights, no-hopers and never-will-be's."You played me again Kaz" you growl as you undo your belts and hop up out of Andrew's car (Which is so heavily modified you have no clue what it could be)."Come on girl, you wrecked half of the guys I use for security for these things only a few days ago; Why else would I need you for tonight?" he asks, motioning you to follow him down into the area of his club he nicknamed "The Temple"."Wait... You want me to be a bouncer tonight?""No, not really... I mean, you could if you really wanted to but I'm short a fighter tonight" he explains, the elevator doors opening and the three of you ambling inside."I got my shit rocked by a Kickboxer earlier today and I'm having a fucking identity crisis right now mate; I'm in no shape to be fighting.""I'll sweeten the pot for y... Identity crisis?" Kazahaya starts to say, then asks about the last line you said as the elevator doors close."Looooong fuckin' story. I'm in no mood t'tell you" you admit, then add "But I'm pretty sore from fightin' this "Joe" guy out in the woods.""Joe Higashi?" Andrew asks in his normal voice, Kazahaya turning around and giving him a look before Andrew clears his throat a little and gets back into the lower octave he used earlier."Yeah... He wasn't fightin' with his best stuff, but I dropped him after he fucked up and got distracted by punching a tree.""Nice..." Kazahaya says to hide his sigh at how beat-up you really are. "We'll hook you up with some suction-cup therapy to get blood flow back to your tight areas and give you a full massage because you're the last fight on the left bracket... What do you say?">A. "Sounds good. What are my costume choices, Kazzy?">B. "Yeah... Nah, I can't do this tonight mate. That gig in two weeks though? I'll be ready for it.">C.

>>697126>>697127>>697135>>697141"The massages sound nice... But let's play hard-ball" you think as the elevator keeps going down, part of you idly wondering how deep this new area is compared to the old one you're used to. "You were saying something about sweetening the pot for me, Kaz?""Oh? Yeah, I was... OK, just spit-ballin' here, but how about a bonus for each round you win? Like, a 50% increase if you make it to "The Final 4" or...?""Try a little harder, mate."Kazahaya gives you a smile you've seen only when trying to explain why he's been caught with another woman to one of his (Many) girlfriends, then explains "OK, OK, how about if you win tonight, you can keep your stuff back at my old penthouse and move in full-time as part of your training for the next two weeks?""That sounds better..." you think as the elevator finally stops, the doors opening to an eerie room with odd, almost hieroglyphic-like designs on the walls. "What's with this place? ... I feel like I've been here before..." your mind asks yourself as you follow Kazahaya & Andrew out into a long hallway."You like the place? I just got it remodeled for Christmas" Kazahaya asks as the crop of fighters signing up and the group of low-lifes that bet on this shit begin to pop into view. "Go take Kat to the locker rooms, eh? I can't blow her cover" he tells Andrew and the masked guy silently nods, then grabs your shoulder."You'll be back with the terms right?" you ask Kazahaya before getting escorted away from him, Kaz giving you an "OK" sign with his hands without looking at you as he begins to play the part of the guy in charge of this kind of seedy thing South Town became famous for."Right... Back to the old days" you think as you unhand yourself from Andrew in a natural kind of way, memories of when you fought a little bit up in a sweaty, rusty steel cage coming back to you as you follow Andrew to the "Locker rooms" Kazahaya's new place has. Ultra Fighters is, despite what most would tell you, bare-fisted boxing in your eyes. Competitors wear a little bit of padding to protect against most fatal injuries but overall are relatively unprotected. UF is televised and can usually be found on cable. It is perfectly legal, regulated and as safe as any blood sport can be.What this is, clearly, was not Ultra Fighters. It was bare-fisted fighting but that was where the similarities stopped. Most fighters did not wear any from of protective padding of any sort, it was not televised, there were no regulations and it most certainly was not legal; An underground operation where everyone present wants to stay off the radar. No one named any names or stared to long at faces and everyone called everyone else by a codename of sorts. Kazahaya was "The Wind"; You were nicknamed "Girl-Kuma" (Mosty because of not wanting to associate yourself with a near-mythical Street Fighter), Andrew probably has one...>Cont.
>>697222"Here we are"Andrew says with that gruff voice again, opening the door to reveal a surprisingly-clean and well-lit room with benches, lockers and even a shower to wash off all of the blood that might get on you... He nods and then heads off to the next room over to leave you to yourself, some old posters of fighters and tournaments from all around the world lining the walls."OK then..." you think as you shrug your shoulders and start to do some stretches out of sheer boredom, a knock on the door interrupting you right when you're just about to finish up."Come in" you say and see Kazahaya with his two girls ("Fuujin" & "Raijin", you think their names are) coming in behind you with suitcases. "This'll be good" you think as "The Wind" sits down on the edge of a bench."So, you think it over?" he asks, "Fuujin" (The one on the left) opening up the suitcase that has the kit for the "Chinese Suction-Cup" therapy & "Raijin" (The one on the right, both wearing White & Black cheongsam dresses) opening up the suitcase filled with...

I'll let the girls get you ready and you can take whatever costumes are lying around" Kazahaya tells you, then adds "I got to get back to the waiting masses anyway. The first round's almost about to begin." You wait for him to leave, then ask the girls "Either of you speak English?" as you start to strip down to your skivvies, then ask "How abut Japanese?" in your Osaka-ben dialect.You get a couple of nods back on that last one as "Raijin" lays out a towel on one of the benches and motions you to lay down on it. You comply and she starts by oiling your back up while "Fuujin" gets out a miniature space-heater(?) to start warming up the cups she'll use on you soon."I could get used to this" you let yourself think as "Raijin" goes to work on you, bunches and bunches of different muscle groups you never thought felt tight reveal themselves to the both of you. "Probably why I never get massages on a regular basis" your mind ads as she finishes up with a loud "Smack" to your back, "Fuujin" motioning you to sit up on the bench. You comply and feel odd sensations all over your back as the cups go on, a few of them feeling a touch tight but most of them not even registering to you that they're even on."A little looser on the really big ones on my back OK?" you ask, "Fuujin" nodding and releasing the cups in question with a loud hissing noise before a couple of pumps to re-attach it. Soon, "Raijin" heads out of the locker room as the sound of more hissing and pumping goes around, then she finishes up and starts to clean the cups off."Thanks... That really felt like it helped" you tell her as you get your clothes back on. She doesn't say anything and instead, opens up three lockers directly in front of you after packing up her equipment. "Kaz keeps weird fucking company, goddamn..." you think as you eye the costumes up. >A. Go for the Sexy Tigress Costume on the right; You have fond memories of watching that anime and know exactly how to play it up.>B.

>>697529>>697535You go for the "Tigress Mask" look straight away, copious amounts of double-sided tape needed to keep your "Katjas"(?) from spilling out. "Yes... This'll do" you hear yourself say as you look yourself over in a mirror near the door leading out of the locker room, the red-sh spots on your back the only remnant of your "Cupping" session. You tighten up your gloves and re-tie your boots before you head out, a group battered & bruised fighters of all shapes & sizes greeting you with lusful stares."Yeah, keep ogling you damn ingrates" you think as you bounce past, the cute little half-mask with the cat-ears flopping around with each step (Among other things; The cut on your but made you ponder if your ass really is getting that "Chunky") and head through to the main room, the crowd looking over to the 8-sided ring as somebody cleans up a little bit of the blood from the last fight and "The Wind" with his "Twins" greeting you with a slap on your shoulder."Yeah, I thought you might like that one" he says, then asks "Got a name for the marks kid?"You close your eyes, then think of something that sounds exotic, yet fake enough to be a codename. "Fortuna. Fortuna Mistral."Kazahaya puts a hand to his chin, then admits "If you were going to say something like that, the 'Biker get-up might've fit better...""I ain't changin' it, mate."You cross your arms under your chest to highlight the point and Kazahaya lets out a pouty sigh. "OK, OK "Fortuna". Get in the left hand corner; You're up next."You nod and try to carry yourself with the stride of a vicious heel; The kind that would attack somebody and start a fight before the bell would've even rung to "Get into Character" and prep yourself for whoever you're up against."OK... Been a while doin' this, but it's just like ridin' a bike" you think as you do a couple of last-second stretches before the lights dim to an oddly-purple shade for introductions.>"In the red corner, from Parts Unknown... The Savage! The Amazon! Ms. FORTUUUNNNAAAAAAA MISTRAL!!!"Part of you wishes you had a cape fluttering behind you as you strut up to the ring, then dip just under the top rope and do some stoic poses for the crowd, some of them booing at your lack of sexual presence and others hooting & hollering like it was feeding time at the local zoo over how your body fills out your outfit.>"Aaaaaaaaaand her Opponent...">Roll 1d100 and Suggest an Opponent (Picture references highly encouraged)!

He says something in a language you can't recognize, but you can see from his face that he's probably hitting on you, or at least trying to flirt with you."Don't get close to this kitty!" you yell in Japanese, half-sexy & half semi-menacing as the referee looks both of you over before backing you up for the start of the fight.

Starting the Bio Train with Not!Katja's former Sensei.Full Name: Tatsuya KirashimaBirthday/Age: UnknownHeight: 6'7"Weight: Est. 300 LbsBlood type: ABirthplace: Unknown (Rumoured to be Honolulu, Hawaii)Family/Relatives: Ellie (Daughter)Occupation: Martial Arts InstructorLikes: Training, Watching Kung-Fu movies Dislikes: Fixed fightsHobbies: Collecting Sega Saturn gamesFavorite Food: BeerForte in Sports: SumoFavorite Music: Country & WesternSpecial Skill: High tolerance to Physical PainMost Unpleasant: Wolverines Personal Treasures: "Pumpkin" (Pet name for his daughter), a picture of his wifeWeapons: NoneFighting Style: Kyokugenryuu Karate>Idolizing and patterning himself after Ryo Sakazaki, Tatsuya was once one of the most prominent students of Kyokugenryuu Karate and popularized the art in the Metro City area through street fighting and breaking up local gangs under Mayor "Macho Mike" Haggar's "Vigilante Justice" act. His incredible savagery in a fight and refusal to acknowledge the limits of his own body were thought to be his greatest weapons, but he famously dropped out of a round-robin tournament that would've made him The United States' leading World Warrior representative to be by his ailing, pregnant wife's side.>Tatsuya ultimately retired from active fighting and after his wife sadly died following complications from childbirth (Which may or may-not have been a plot to assassinate her by the Kisaragi Ninja Clan), he raised his only daughter Ellie and founded his own officially-endorsed Kyokguen Dojo in South Town. When she was old enough, Tatsuya began to pass on his personal teachings to her and ultimately helped cultivate her fighting skills.>Though quite large for a Kyokugen Master, Tatsuya is faster than he looks and still has more than enough power to flatten most garden-variety hoodlums & street punks. However, as he readily admits, he's "A Family Man" nowadays and doesn't really have the stamina or drive to prolong serious fights.
>>698334He's huge man.
>>698343I imagined him to be like the Sagat of Kyokugenryuu; Slower than most, but packs a huge wallop.>>698334And now his daughter because why not?Full Name: Ellie KirashimaBirthday/Age: Unknown, 26 years oldHeight: 5'6"Weight: 129 lbsBlood type: OBirthplace: Metro City, USAFamily/Relatives: Tatsuya (Father)Occupation: Mayor of South Town, USALikes: Days off Dislikes: Needless Paperwork Hobbies: Riding & Fixing up her motorcycle, browsing FightChanFavorite Food: None in ParticularForte in Sports: SoftballFavorite Music: Rock & RollMeasurements: "Why should I tell you?"Special Skill: "Working my butt off"Most Unpleasant: Dealing with Untrustworthy people on a regular basisPersonal Treasures: A picture of her Mother, Her Motorcycle Leathers & HelmetWeapons: NoneFighting Style: Personally-Modified Kyokugenryuu Karate>The only daughter of a known practitioner of Kyokugenryuu Karate, Elllie spent most of her youth bouncing between the crime-riddled streets of South Town & Metro City USA and didn't have much initial interest in fighting. As she grew into adolescence, however, her rebellious nature lead her joining a motorcycle club and learning some basic hand-to-hand skills from the "Boss", who just happened to be an accomplished Aikido practitioner. Noticing this, Tatsuya (Her father) began to teach her some of the basics of Kyokugenryuu Karate, though only for Self-Defense.>In time, Ellie started to secretly don her highly-customized motorcycle leathers & helmet and began competing in underground fight clubs & tournaments as "The Skull Girl" (To Tatsuya's blind eye). Her reign of local terror ended when she was a mere 17 and it prompted her father to expand her Kyokugen repertoire and help her blossom as a fighter. Following her public unmasking during the infamous "13th World Warrior" tournament (In which it was revealed that there was match-fixing on behalf of the organizers & sponsors) and after several attempts to break past The King of Fighters Tournament's undercard with her friends Belle & Moriya, Ellie semi-retired to live back in relative peace in South Town.>Ellie's methodical style is a fluid mix of her earlier Aikido tips, her father's Kyokugenryuu teachings and various moves she's picked up in around her friends and the local fighting circuits. As such, her fighting style lacks any true weaknesses on a technical level; Her biggest flaws are her lack of pure power, a lack of a "True" projectile attack and her overall rustiness as a fighter after taking public office (Which is a story unto itself).
Now for a villain before I fall asleep.Full Name: Kazunori Kazahaya AKA "The Wind"Birthday/Age: UnknownHeight: 6'2"Weight: 220 LbsBlood type: ABirthplace: Sapporro, Hokkaido, JapanFamily/Relatives: UnknownOccupation: "Racontuer"Likes: Tailored Clothes, Dancing with his crewDislikes: "Player-Haters", Pre-made DJ Set-lists, going to JapanHobbies: Collecting Rare Books, Making MusicFavorite Food: KimcheeForte in Sports: Parkour Favorite Music: "Everything"Special Skill: ?Most Unpleasant: NothingPersonal Treasures: His SunglassesWeapons: NoneFighting Style: Various Chinese Martial Arts>Most bits of major personal information regarding the true identity and past of Kazunori "The Wind" Kazahaya is either hearsay, rumor, speculation or in classified documents currently being held by The South Town Police Department. What is known is that Kazahaya is thought to be the largest single property owner in South Town's "China Town" district and owns several prominent businesses. He is also rumored to be involved with major local Drug-Smuggling, Gun-Running and Racketeering outfits as well as being the head of several small & mid-sized gangs, most notably "The Waifus" who are sometimes seen as his private security detail.>How he hasn't been arrested is anyone's guess, but some leaked information suggest that "The Wind" (A play on the meaning of his last name) may in fact be a front for a larger organization that's bribing the local police force for his protection. Beacuse of this, Kazahaya carries a care-free attitude and has become a bit of a local bon-vivant & playboy; He's been repeatedly seen around town going to-and-from several expensive apartment buildings with a crew of suited men & women.>Though he rarely fights, Kazahaya has an energetic and almost untrained-looking style of fighting that mixes several schools of Chinese Martial Arts together along with subtle influences from break-dancing & into a hyper-kinetic style that preys on the cautious by tricking opponents into expecting the wrong thing. However, though he fashions himself as a master of mind-games, rumour has it that this is dependent on his mood and sometimes Kazahaya attacks with more direct form of Jeet Kun Doe in more "Serious" fights.
Sorry Anons, but I am not feeling all too well today. I'm going to take the day off from running this, rest up and take every last vitamin & herbal supplement my body can take before coming back tomorrow at the usual 10 AM PST/1 PM EST/ 5 PM GMT time to continue QM'ing.

You get into a more relaxed stance and Wéixiào eyes you up a little as his stance has him ducking low, lower than you'd think a guy that buff could conceivably go, but launches forward with a flying kick that has such ferocity that it seemed his lower body was shot out of a cannon or something.You easily dodge it and land your "Zanretsuken" punches, backing Wéixiào near the ropes already. He seems a tad surprised at how easily you're overwhelming him, but he bursts through your attacks with a forearm and stomps the ground, the tremor loosening your footing as he gets in and lands a couple of kicks to your stomach chest. You're able to roll back to your feet with ease and manage to land just past Wéixiào's follow-up strike; A leg drop that sounds like an avalanche hitting the ground."An upper body like that and he only uses his feet?" You quickly chuck him over to the edge of the ring with a Uchimata that gets a couple of hoots & hollers from the crowd (Again, you're outfit isn't that far removed from some of the more "Slutty" stuff you've seen Mai Shiranui, Jenet Bonne and a couple of other KOF girls wear) and quickly land a "Left Hook/Right Straight/Super Kick" combination, Wéixiào landing on his back with a rolling thud."He might have the bod, but he's easy pickin's for me... What the fuck is that crawling up my?" You feel a sting in your knees and spot one of Wéixiào's "Helpers" running in to kick you in the shins, another one trying to trip you up as he gets back to his feet. This time he gets a running start and goes for something close to Kyo Kusanagi's old "R.E.D. Kick" and though you manage to block it, dealing with his little kids(?) knocks you off balance and you scramble to get back up and counter his standing side-kick with a short "Strayacut"."He's not bad... Uses the little munchkins too much, but he's still hitting me hard...">(Roll 3d20 with each vote)>A.

"They're annoying little brats though..."You gentle lift one up and cuddle it near your chest, then slowly walk over to the ring ropes and slide out and place him down on the other side of the canvass, the other one struggling to try and trip you up and looking as cute as a button."You... You're not bad girl huh?" Wéixiào asks in broken Japanese as You do the same to his other kid."Sometimes... But you shouldn't bring babies to an adult's fight!" you yell as you charge back towards him, your speed more than enough to overwhelm him with a barrage of punches and a few "Feral"-looking kicks. Unfortunately, Wéixiào seems to have caught his second wind and again powers through your last kick with that stomping forearm-thing and lands a short-but-sweet combination of his own, the damage dealt to you really adding up by the end of it."Fuck... Can't play around with this crowd" you think as you fake-struggle to get back up to your feet, the referee (Who's outside of the cage and has his hand glued to the house microphone) even starting to count you out before you force yourself to stand and try to block a 3-hit combination that could probably pass for Wéixiào's "Desperation Move". "Come on, come on... NOW!" you think as you time the last punch to easily hit him with your big command throw, the "Ude-Hishigi-Juji-Gatame". You get a few "Pops" from the crowd as you really lay-in on the arm bar, sweat starting form on Wéixiào's face and almost see him tap-out, but let his two sons break up the submission and try to act like a cat by rolling around with the two of them and making faux-cute cat noises as their dad gets up and tries to stretch out his arm.He says something in that odd language again, then the kids stop horsing around and dodge that leg-drop thing he does. "OK, still in this... Just need one last shot to take him down" you ponder as you land a quick punch combination and hit a kick to his knees, Wéixiào down to one knee and breathing heavy, like he's almost about to pass out...>Roll 3d20 for Options A & B.>A.

>>705312>>705242>>705184"Sorry mate. Business is business" you think as you feel your Ki spike up and around you and lash out with a long string of punches & kicks, your "Ryuuko Ranbuu" feeling just a tad "Off" tonight and those aches & pains from fighting Joe Higashi earlier in the day really noticeable as you finish him off with straight hard punch to the jaw that bursts with electrified Ki. Wéixiào tries to shrug it off and almost tries to grab you as he struggles to stand, but falls over with a sickening sound."I hate this fucking part" you think as you cross your arms underneath your chest, the referee counting up to 10 before ringing the bell, the sight of Wéixiào's kids crying, running over to their daddy and trying to wake up is almost enough for you to break character... So, like the horrible person you have to be to want to take part in something like this, you turn around and do a cute little "Sexy" dance to get the crowd to yell and scream, a couple of Chinese guys dressed up like medics heading into the ring as the cage slowly ascends.You follow them back to the left-side of the ring and head down the way to meet up with "The Wind", his two nearly-identical girls by his side cavorting with a couple older guys in suits & ties. "Good stuff Fortuna... Good stuff.""Yeah, it'll come back to me" you tell him. "When's the next round Wind?""When Mr. Six here's done with the brackets and finishes rounding up the bets" "The Wind" explains, pointing a thumb at a dorky-looking teen in a too-big suit sweating like a stuck pig counting out more cash than he's probably seen in his whole life."Bitchin', I'll be in the locker room" you tell him, then retrace your steps back through the weary-and-waiting room and see that Wéixiào guy sitting upright and sharing a big bowl of noodles with his sons while getting patched up. "You're strong for a woman!" he yells at you "And you're strong for a "Family Man" " you reply with a firm hand-shake (Pic Related for visual reference)[/spoiler, you take a seat in the lady's locker room, a girl in a... "Wow, that bodysuit covers everything but doesn't leave much to the imagination" you think as she gives you a harsh glare."Something wrong?"The woman in the too-tight bodysuit ("Bodypaint?" you idly wonder) eyes you up and down, then simply warns "You better pray you don't fight me tonight, Kyokugen Dog!" before vanishing in a puff of smoke."Well OK then, she's a bitch" you think out loud, then get some stretches going for about half an hour before another knock on the door, Kazahaya himself telling you that it's time for your next fight."What, you couldn't get that "Mr. Six" kid to do this Wind?" you ask playfully, really getting into your ring persona as the two of you strut back out to the holding area."Nah, he's too busy counting receipts, notifying next-of-kin..."

>>705562>>705580>>705588You tune out the crowd leering at you and your suit, the announcer botching your name and the lights kind of spazzing out a little as you head up to the ring again, the stain from Wéixiào's bloody mouth still on the canvass and creeping you out a little; Not the blood per say, but just the recollection of a couple of your early underground fight clubs popping into your psyche as the lights properly dim and your next opponent makes his way into view.>Aaaaaaaand her opponent... A South Town local, an accomplished Stock Broker & Day Trader, give it up for the One-Punch Machine-Gun! CAAAAAARRRRRTTTEEEERRRRRR KENDALL!"A guy that looks like he could be friends with Kazahaya and dressed in a stylish suit slowly shadow-boxes his way to the ring, a purple-haired piece of arm-candy following him and getting most of the crowd's attention. "And here I thought I was going to fight some 8-foot tall, roided-out super giga nigga" you think as you dispense with any pleasantries and glare at him like the tigress you are, ready and waiting to strike."Damn, another crazy one..." you overhear Carter say to his "Assistant" as the referee goes over him for any hidden weapons."Hey, it can't be as bad as that one "Power Kat" chick that nearly broke your neck with her thighs" "Joanna" tells him as she hands a stun-gun, a bottle of mace, a set of brass knuckles and a switchblade strapped the farthest upper part of her thigh to the referee to save herself the embarrassment of having to get "Patted Down" in front of these clowns."She knows what's up" you think as you do a couple more stretches as the referee exits the area, "Joanna" in tow and watch her nearly jump up a solid 2 feet off of the ground when the cage suddenly drops behind her, Carter getting into an orthodox "South Paw" boxing stance."He'll either be a push over or own my ass in seconds... Well, let's find out" you think as you clasp your gloves together and hiss at him like scalded cat when he goes to touch gloves with you, the announcer yelling "Fight" and the bell sounding off. Carter keeps his distance from you at first and you wonder if he's getting paid to be here; He had gamboled into the ring like he was coming down the stairs on Christmas morning. "OK, let's open him up" you think as you go for a kick to the shins, but he backs away up to the corners of the ring posts. You brace for a punch to block, but he doesn't seem to care; Instead, he backs away, generally leading you to the shark-infested waters of the center of the ring... You take that bait and land three good hits, but he shrugs them off like you were some "Do Nothing Bitch" throwing a hissy fit and clinches you like a consoling big brother."What the fuck is this guy doing?" you think as you break it up and go for a Ippon Seoinage, only for Carter to break out of it and clinch you again, landing a couple of love-tap shots before backing away.>Cont.

>>706087OK then...>>705995>>706223"Fuck it, let's see what kind of beat this clown's dancing to" you think as you hop up out of a crouch and circle Carter a little bit, the crowd already starting to get antsy and some of them drunk enough to start hollering obscenities at how "Boring" this is. Carter eyes you up and down behind his guard, but not trying to really advance any kind of offense on you. "Well shit, maybe he's just some rich arsehole playboy-type that likes to oggle girls like me while his "Assistant" watches?" you think as it becomes clear the "Music" the two of you are dancing to is elevator "Muzak" from some long since torn-down casino on the Las Vegas strip, the only action being the occasional dropped tray of drinks in the crowd.You hear the boos start to rain down on the two of you, Joanna even yelling "You gotta put it on her! Because I’m telling you, Kendall, believe me, I’m gonna tell you right now that these guys are gonna take this fight from you if you don't!" from the other side of the cage."Well, she's not wrong" you think as you drop the "Dance" and instead try to give the crowd something to either cheer or boo for by doing a pretty risque little taunt/dance, Carter thinking that this is his shot to take and roaring nearly halfway across the ring. You don't block it completely (The punch just coming close to clipping your collar bone), but you do get an advantage to land your forbidden Judo technique to scattered applause."Come on you weak willed little shit, TAP!" you grunt in Japanese as you lock in the arm bar. Carter gradually works his way out of it, but he does land a couple of shots to your head that are a LOT harder than the "Barely-even-felt-it" swipes he threw out while the two of you were in a clinch. From how he's grabbing his arm, you did some big damage to it and since it was his lead off hand... "Now we work this crowd for everything they've got and take this dickhead to school" you think as you roll up to your feet and land a Hien Shippu Kyaku, Carter doing a guard cancel to back away from you and go for a neat little one-two that knocks you back further than you expected."One-Punch Machine-Gun? Please..." you say in Japanese with a mocking tone, trying to play off your injuries and hit him in the jaw with a quick "Strayacut", knocking him back but not doing enough to really floor him as he brushes it off and again tries to get his guard up against you. You recognize the pattern he's trying to set: You come in off-balance so Carter can gracefully move away, rounding the corners of the ring and sliding around to lead you back to the center of the ring; No partner for the "Dance", standing you up if you get within throw range...>Cont.

The big difference is Carter doesn't lose his balance and goes for a ducking underhand/overhand combination to try and keep you out of range, his punches smacking of desperation to your eyes as somebody in the crowd starts to chant your "New" name. You stalk Carter, backing him down and driving him against the ropes. Though he pivots free and leans over with a jab, in the time it takes him to blink you unleash a counter "Left Hook" against the lids of his eyes and watch Carter stumble back to the ropes as the crowd jumps to their feet, urging you to continue your violent pursuit."OK, come on" you think as it's unclear how much damage you did to him at first and fire off a "Super Kick" to keep him on his toes. You can hear that Joanna chick calling out to him to try and fight back among the crowd and sure enough, Carter goes for a haymaker that probably would've hurt had it connected, but now the shoe's on the other foot as you raise the drawbridge of your defense and bury your face in your hands, watching carefully as the formerly-poised Carter Kendall blurs the air with his fists, first to the face and then to your body again and again and again, as if there may not be another chance."Got him" you think as you counter his last hit with an Uchimata and watch him struggle to get up off the floor. You think about doing a "Show'Nuff!" pose to fuck with him and pump up the crowd, but he eventually gets back up to a standing 8-Count and get back into a sloppier-version of the stance he had at the start of the fight. "OK, you've got guts after all!" you yell back at him before blocking a kind of Dempsey Roll-ish thing, a "Strayacut" followed by a "Right Straight" to see if he gets back on his feet after that...Though he does land on his feet, you can tell that Carter Kendall's knocked out on his feet and the bell rings, the referee quickly unlocking a gate to the ring that you didn't notice to check on him and announce: >"You're winner, by Technical Knockout with 1 minute & 30 seconds left in the fight... FOOOOORTUUUNNNAAAAAAA MISTRAL!"You take the arm raise and hop up on a ring post to celebrate, Joanna re-enacting the movie "Rocky" with Carter as he comes back into consciousness and tries to take a swing in your general direction before being lead out of the ring through that gate."Fuck, I feel like I need another massage or something; I'm fucking beat after that" you think as you walk back to the lady's locker room. "Wonder if I'll face that Knunoichi in the finals? And where did Andrew go?" you think out loud as you grab a water bottle from a vending machine.>Roll 1d100 and Suggest an Opponent!

"OK, that'll do it..." You pass a guy built like a swimmer in spandex bicycling shorts and an average-looking red-head dressed up like a Nazi "Brown Shirt" getting treated on the way to the main stage entrance, a couple of yells of "For-Tue-Nah!" as you walk past. "I'll never tire of this feeling... And shit, maybe I should become a wrestler or something to get my grab-game back to the fore." You really try to hype up the crowd this time as you head back to the ring; Slapping hands, doing some more shameless flirting with the crowd... Theye ate it up amd>"And her opponent.... Another local favorite! By way of Sochi, Russia, VYAH-cheh-slav ee-VAHN-oh-vich! THE BONE COLLECTOR!" You stifle a laugh at how bad the announcer was at pronouncing your next opponent's real name, but stop smiling when you see a huge, bald muscled guy dressed like he got lost on the way to an Ultra Fighter's match card walk up to the ring. "Well, it wouldn't be a tournament if there wasn't a pure grappler in the top-8..."From how he conducts himself coming into the ring to how he spreads his arms out during the "Foreign Object" check, this "Vyacheslav" guy is a hardened veteran of these things... Yet, you can tell that underneath the body built for fighting bears and the stoic demeanor he's got a real heart and genuineness to him that feels oddly out place here in this dank, musty and creepy underground."Don think that this will go easy, big girl" he says with barely a trace of an accent."Well, you know what they say; The bigger they are..."He chuckles at that, then explains "I learned Commando-Sambo from Dyadya Ivan, I spar with Blue Mary on regular basis...

He does the same for you and gives you a friendly smack on the back before the referee/announcer breaks the two of you up and you head to your "Corners" of the octagonal ring."OK, OK... He's a grappler and has a lot of strength, that's a given. The real question is how fast he is and how much range he has..." You glance behind you and take a quick peek at Vyacheslav Ivanovich's gait and note that he doesn't look like a particularly fast runner, nor do his arms & legs have that much of a reach advantage over yours to be particularly scared of. "I'll keep myself from hitting the ground and see if I can get him roped into a stand-up fight, because if he takes control on the ground I don't know if I can really overpower him or make a comeback with my Judo moves... And on top of that he's not too fast either, so I might have a chance there."You hold your arms out and rest them on the ropes behind you at the "Corner" of the ring, trying to look sexy-like for the crowd and a little bit for yourself as you ponder the possibilities and Ivanovich gets ready to go to town on you.>""Ready…?

On the advice of a few of her mother's friends Tsuyako began to take up Judo & Wrestling to improve her self-esteem and, in time, became a feared amateur competitor.>Following a new set of tax laws that targeted comparatively heavy-set people(The so-called "Metabo" law), Hatsune and Tsuyako relocated to The United States of America and at the age of 17, Tsuyako was admitted to college in Hawaii and some tapes of her wrestling reached the offices of the "Wrestling Total Federation". With encouragement from Hatsune, Tsuyako took the job and though the company died within a year of her hiring, she met and worked some matches with "Ultima" and ended up joining her in the newly-revamped "Southtown Wrestling Federation" despite them not having a dedicated Women's Division.>Tsuyako has a unique moveset that mixes all kinds of "Flashy" & "Hard-Hitting" wrestling techniques into a catch-all style, much like her mother's used to be. Her ability to fly through the air with a soaring grace despite her... "Physical Presence" has made her a fan-favorite in the SWF, but her unique submissions and impressive ground-game are a real highlight.

Uniquely, Andrew mastered both the Offense-oriented and Defense-oriented sides of the curriculum to help temper his wild, brawling tendencies. As such, Andrew seems to be a "Jack of All Trades; Master of None" kind of fighter with attack counters, a pseudo-projectile, a true Anti-Air and even a command grab... However, he seems to have trouble fighting in front of large crowds of people and has had issues with dealing with his "Survival Instincts" kicking in at the wrong time.
>>708161Fuckin' Bizuki. That was a trip and a half trying to make sense of and deal with her. She was just too out there with her powers and overall strength, on top of relentlessly tormenting Katja and exacerbating her sexual identity crisis.
>>708259Well, my vision of her was as a parody of the kind of bullshit that Falcoon brought to the table with the Maximum Impact series of games as well as the Ash Crimson Saga's more ridiculous plot points. The problem was that I went in too deep and it stopped being a straight parody almost immediately... For which I apologize.
>>708287>Wanted to lampoon FalcoonDude, that's not hard. Just try and replace the original cast with your own OCs, make them annoying as shit, and try to sell them as super strong and trendy. Chae Lim and Duke were the only good MI characters. You could salvage Lien Neville if you put in a lot of work.
>>708334Falcoon's problem was that his OCs tried to make the KOF veterans look bad, from Alba and Soiree trying to replace the Bogards in their retelling of Fatal Fury, to Nagase being a cunt to pretty much everyone but being sold as very strong. In Weasel's case, his OCs (even those that try to outdo Katja at being "UNIQUE") don't try to overtake the original cast but merely supplement them and make them credible competition. A truly serious Terry would wipe the floor with Katja, and that's okay, because he's Terry fucking Bogard, the Hungry Wolf himself and South Town's number one living legend.
>>708334I guess I kind of wanted to do a sort of "Ghosts of KOF Bosses Past, Present & Future" deal? With her being the dark future of the series if it followed trends like KOF XIII did? I'dunno, I over-complicated it and regret it to this day. Duke was damn fun and with May Lee's VA sadly gone from this world, Chae Lim could make a comeback... No idea how you could translate Lien into a 2D fighting game, because what the hell she had more emphasis on her dial-a-combos than her special moves & supers (Which functionally all sucked).>>708370Well yeah, that's because I liked how Street Fighting Man went and did his own lore and, in the end, the very best fighters in his quests were merely equal or slightly worse/specialized than the best oldschool Street Fighter characters. >(even those that try to outdo Katja at being "UNIQUE")It's a forced uniqueness though. Kat is Kat because she's not trying to be anybody except herself; Fiona & Tsuyako are wrestlers working for a company that still believes in kayfabe and the pressure of wearing their "Masks" in public all of the time are starting to change their "Faces" (Which is pretty much why Mai couldn't stand being around them all of the time in the old KOF Quest; They reminded her too much of herself and how she acts trying to woo Andy Bogard).
>>708446Actually, better analogy: Mai is in denial that her personality change is that drastic trying to seduce Andy into marriage...
>>708446>Mai hated Fiona and Tsuyako because they put her at risk realizing she acted fake around AndyI never really picked up on that. I remember original Katja was sold to be unique because she physically looked like literally no other KOF woman: she was Australian, tall, dark, muscular, amazon-like, even scarred, with short cropped blonde hair, and able to hide her impressive figure very well. Then we got Tsuyako, an exceptionally THICC wrestler, and Fiona, an amazon who was ever so slightly bigger than Katja. Of course, Katja Prime got the "NESTS test tube baby/secret super project" angle as time went on, so she had that going for her.Our current Katja (practically confirmed to be another wild clone of Katherine/Katja Prime) is in the same boat, except she's not as emotionally fragile as the original and has some vague sense of her taste in partner. That said, now that I think about it, our current Katja seems to have inherited old Katja's intense bad luck streak; this is on top of the even bigger identity crisis she's having.
>>708510On top of Katja-1 (as opposed to original Katja) being more exposed to, and a formerly active participant in, the seedy underground of South Town, as has been regularly hinted at.
>>708510>>708524Fiona & Tsuyako were hold-overs from a "Fatal Fury in the NeoWave 80's" Quest that I thought about doing, but decided not to go ahead with for whatever reason.Anyway, I'm going to bed.

His guard isn't nearly as good as that Carter guy you last fought, but you know for a fact that this dude's going to really hurt you if you make a mistake... So, you do the motion of charging up to throw out a Ko'ouken, but fake Ivanovich out and sock him in the face with a Left Hook. Though it didn't seem to do any damage, it surprised the big guy long enough that you're able to hop away and stuff his standing jab with a Right Straight.Again, Ivanovich brushes it off but you can already tell that he wasn't expecting you to move so fast and slip out of his grab attempt with a Ko'ouken at point-blank range. That one seems to stagger him for just long enough for you to open up some distance and fire off another one, Ivanovich simply stopping in place to block it. "He must not be used to projectiles... Interesting..."You do one more Ko'ouken and see him roll past it, but quickly hit him out of standing back up with your Zanretsuken punches. Though they don't seem to do much harm to him, they do more than enough to keep Ivanovich off-balance and allow you to get a quick "Strayacut" in on the last hit. Curiously, the uppercut doesn't pop him up into the air like you expected it to and he quickly grabs your feet and tackles you to the ground. You put your hands up to guard any incoming punches, but instead he starts to do a "Giant Swing" and throws you over to one of the far edges of the octagon. While the landing on your butt isn't what most would call "Pleasant", it didn't do as much damage to you as you would've expected and you spring back to your feet and fire off another Ko'ouken, clipping Ivanovich as he charged at you."He's either holding back to make this a show or he really can't deal with the ranged game I'm using...">(Roll 3d20 with each vote.)>A.

>>709894>>709920>>710108You pick a spot near the center of the ring and try to lead Ivanovich towards it, then land a "Super Kick" to the guy's chin. It knocks him back a little, but not enough to completely stop him from driving you into canvass again and going for some punches to your head. You've done enough Judo and cross-trained with some BJJ guys in college to know what to do here and block most of his strikes while trying to land the "Ude-Hishigi-Juji-Gatame". "Almost... THERE!" You manage to move out of the way of his last punch and use his confusion to try and lock in your perpendicular Arm Bar, the crowd starting to yell and sound like they were speaking in tongues to you, the fairly-large room this is all taking place in shrinking to your ears with every voice that bounces off the walls.Unfortunately for you, Ivanovich is no stranger to this kind of thing either and breaks out of the arm bar in one piece, then again tries to "Mount" you while you roll around on the floor and stand back up. "Stick with the plan, stick with the plan..." You hit him with another Ko'ouken, but it seems to do no damage at all as Ivanovich charges with an elbow to your face. It only barely manages to hit you and even then, it packed a real wallop as the room spins around for a second and put your guard up, hopping back to then try and get Ivanovich with Hien Shippu Kyaku. The first two hits of it connect, but he somehow manages to block that last one and does a leg-sweep into leg-lock, again sending the two of you to the mat."Fuck me, he's got it on tight." The pressure Ivanovich is putting on your legs is impressive, but he didn't seem to lock in the submission as tight as either of you thought he did and quickly get out of it and throw out another Ko'ouken, this one finally knocking him over. You eye him up as he gets up off of his back and says something in Russian at you while smacking himself back into focus, another quick Ko'ouken to keep his guard up. "About time he's starting to feel some of the hits I've given him... Ah shit, me too? Damn it."You hit him out of his clumsy grab attempt with a Left Hook, then follow it up with a Right Straight but back away from Ivanovich before you let yourself get too greedy. You circle around him, your legs still sturdy and your speed still there as he seems to be at a loss of what to do, the sinking feeling that this fight's going to time popping up in your head.>A.

>>710259Fine, I'll go with B, although I think getting in a grapple fight with a submission expert is risky.
>>710161>>710156"Fuck it, let's keep throwing this stuff at the wall and see if it'll stick." With the invisible clock ticking and Ivanovich looking tired, you keep up the strategy you had before and look to try and bait him into making mistakes that you can counter for big damage. You can hear him breathing hard as you dodge a good jab to your midsection and hit him with a kick to the shins, getting him off-balance enough that you're able to land an Uchimata (Because with how tired you're starting to feel and how big Ivanovich is, no way would an Ippon Seoinage work). He goes down with ease and you almost clip him in the head with a Hien Shippu Kyaku, but he blocks it and again gets you down on your back and tries to get into a "Full Mount" position. Fortunately for you, Ivanovich's speed has dropped drastically since the start of the fight and you easily get back to your feet with no real harm done and hit him with a "Super Kick" to the chest. It staggers him back towards the ropes and you fire off a Ko'ouken that he doesn't even try to block while getting his guard back up."Just a little more..." In the words of a certain commentator for The South Town Wrestling federation, you're smelling blood in the water right now and again break free of Ivanovich's lazy grab attempt to hit him with a short, standing uppercut that has him reeling, then follow up with your wild-looking "Zanretsuken" to really lay on the hurt. "Well, this guy is supposed to be Blue Mary's sparring partner; He's used to a hot chick kicking his ass." You grin at him as you go in for the kill and stop to charge your momentarily charge your Ki, but Ivanovich stops you cold with a chokeslam SAMBO practitioners use as part of a Suplex. You feel the wind get knocked out of you as you land on the floor and struggle for breath as Ivanovich tries to land a couple of cheap shits to your body before you can get up, a few boos from the crowd over his tactics. "That's a first for this kind of crowd, I'll reckon... Alright, no more games Vyacheslav."You can see from the look on his face that Ivanovich's hurting badly from your last couple of strikes and part of you wants to go in and wreck his ass for trying to hit you while you were down, yet there's something in his eye that suggests that he's beside himself for letting his anger override his conscious... So, instead of going all-out on him, you do a bread-and-butter combination to open him up (A hopping Hard Kick into a couple of crouching Light Punches before that standing uppercut again) and use all of your might to lift him up over your shoulder with the "Ippon Seoinage", the momentum of Ivanovich's weight sending you to floor along with him. You get back up to your feet by using the ring ropes, but Ivanovich's struggling to stand and the referee starts to count him out, the crowd joining on in the fun."C'mon mate, just stay down... I don't want to hurt ya' more than I have to.">Cont.
>>710458To your relief, Ivanovich doesn't get up in time and although he does get back to standing up under his own power, he chooses to rest on the nearest turnbuckle as you feel you arm getting raised in triumph. You quickly take it out of the referee's hands though and tell Ivanovich "Great fight mate" with a hug before sliding out of the ring, the cage taking it's sweet-ass time to rise up enough for you to get out."One more fight... Goddamn, I might actually pull this off for once." The walk back to the locker room was without any real incident, but Kazahaya was waiting for you in front of the door. "Aw sheeit, what does he fuckin' want now?""Come on in babe, I want to talk with you" he says, a concerned tone in his voice.You sigh and nod, Kazahaya locking the door behind you as sit down on the nearest bench. "If he's gonna bring up taking a dive now, I fucking swear...""You're really impressing a lot of people out there tonight, huh?""I guess" you say with a huff. "But what's gon' on Kaz?""Nothing, nothing... I just wanted to wish you luck before you went back out there for the finals; You've got a lot riding on you, you know?">A.

>>710529>>710531"Yeah yeah, just like old times and all of that right?" "You think I could squeeze in one more full-body before the final match? That Russian bear fucking tore me up...""Really? Shit, you're really are getting old huh?" Kazahaya asks."Maybe... I mean shit, I fought Joe Higashi, you a couple days ago... I need some time after this to rest and stretch and stuff.""Ah well, we all can't be grinders that go forever like Terry Bogard & Ryo Sakazaki... I'll see if we can stall it for you" Kazahaya says before taking his leave through a door hidden behind a pair of fake-looking lockers."At least he looks out for me..." You do a couple of stretches to pass the time, part of you wondering if that "Fuugetsu" chick is somewhere in here perving on you, but feel quite stiff in your joints as well as your neck, so you stop earlier than you'd like and look yourself over in the mirror. All things considered, you still don't look too bad; There are a couple of welts on your shoulders from the first fight, a couple near your neck from fighting Ivanovich and a nasty little bruise near the center of your forehead that your mask thankfully covers... Not too bad for not doing this on a regular basis in over a year."Some make-up before the finals wouldn't hurt though..." You grab your bag of now rotten-smelling clothes and find the travel kit make-up bag you carry around in your purse, then applu some blush to the bruises that are visible on your face, some rouge to your eyelids, some mascara as a base... And instantly your whole look has changed, something Kazahaya notes on as "Fuujin" follows him in."Hot damn, you're looking good.""Yeah, thought I should give myself a touch-up before the finals... Oh, and do you have any, like, places you could do my laundry?""Come on... Really?" Kazahaya asks as "Fuujin" does a quiet little "Ojou-san" laugh. "OK, OK, they'll be done in a little bit... Now strip down and get on the bench; The crowd's going to be getting restless if you don't hustle."With those words Kazahaya leaves and "Fuujin" starts to prep a fold-out table that you didn't notice that she was carrying, then take off your mask and One-piece Swimsuit-like singlet and lay face down on it. "Gah, I hope this doesn't fuck up my make-up...">Roll 1d100 to regain health during the massage! (Only the first 3 rolls will be counted)

>>711090Had to take care of a few things around the house and lost track of time. Sorry for the delay Anons!>>710809>>710812You're amazed at how many creaks, cracks and groans "Fuujin's" hands wring out of you in such a short time, energy like you had in that first fight with Wéixiào flowing through your body again. She cuts it shorter than last time though and actually helps you up off of the table as you go to put your costume back on."Thanks again, really" you tell her in Japanese as you do all of the little things that make your costume stay on and the "Money Marks" in the crowd lust after you (As well as re-do your make-up; It did smudge up a little when you laid down in the table face-hole). She again says nothing before leaving through that "Hidden" door in the lockers and you do one last little warm-up stretch before you head back out, your body feeling even more supple & lithe than when you fought Joe Higashi earlier in the day. The walk to the ring is short, but you use it drown out the sounds of the crowd and the announcer (Who FINALLY got your name sounding right) and focus on the prize ahead of you. When you finally get there, you put on the "Cute/Sexy Cat-Girl" act from earlier in the night to some pops from the crowd, but again quickly get back to being serious as the lights dim and introductions for your opponent start.>"And the challenger... Another fresh face to these octagonal circles! From Japan, here is the mysterious... FUUUUUUUUGETSU!"There's a spotlight hovering on the other side of the ring where your opponent usually is revealed and starts to make their way down, but something feels... "Off" about this right now. "Aw fuck me, what the hell is all this now....?" Soon the lights shut off, the crowd being sent into a panic and some asshole near your corner yelling "OH GOD IT'S A RAID ISN'T IT OH GOD!!!" before an explosion from the doors on that side of this underground arena kick the lights back on, revealing... "Noooooooooo... I'll take Ninja Bitch over him.">New Thread Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1GAPqI_WWMYep, it's Andrew in that stupid "Lucha-driver" suit all right... And he's clutching Fuugetsu by the collar of where her bodysuit ends with one hand while energy flows through the other.>"W-Well Ladies and Gentlemen! We seem to.. Errr... Have a change of plans! The New Challenger! From Parts Unknown! One of the most successful combatants we've ever had here on "Kazahaya Underground", give it up for MISSSTTTEEEERRRRRRRRR X!"

Well, you were going to say "Sweet, poor ole' Fugetsu", but nobody calls you a dog and gets away with it. "Let's lay on the old spic'n'span and see if he melts.""Mr. X" hops up to the ring and does some wild-looking over-the-top rope flip to reach the center of the octagon where you are as the referee timidly looks over him for any "Illegal" weapons."Ah, what's the matter? You couldn't wait until after my fight, could you?" you ask in a mock-sexy tone, swaying your hips just enough to get some of the round, soft parts of your anatomy to wiggle around under your costume."... Would it be wrong of me if I said 'Yes'?" "Mr. X" asks in return, that "Dark" voice from early much more noticeable now."You naughty little... Can't I have my fun with Fugestu too? You hogged her all to yourself!" you say with a pout, the crowd half-shocked, half laughing at how you're taking the piss out of a character that's supposed to be some stoic, over-powered ass-kicker of a "Final Boss". You can tell that it's affecting Andrew under that mask too as it takes him a minute to come up with a good reply, so much so you start to dance around him while the crowd eats it up."... My appetite cannot be sated. Neither can my will to conquer all that dare oppose me... Even one such as beautiful as yourself.""Sounded like he broke "Kayfabe" with that last part of his sentence... This fight's mine." "Aw... You're no fun at all!" you say with a smirk, then head back to your corner as you hear "Mr. X" do the same. "His heart's not in it tonight... I'll have to have a word with The Wind after this, because my reputation can't be takin' hits from being in fixed fights before that one..."A chilling thought occurs to you as the bell rings and Mr. X casually comes out to the center of the ring: "Did Kaz set this all up to drive the hype of me being in that Underground tournament down so the odds could be favorable?">(Roll 3d20 with each vote.)>A.

Internet's getting screwy over how stormy it's getting outside. Sorry for the delay Anons.>>711621>>711612You circle Mr. X a little bit, slowly working in close to him to see if he'll try and take the bait. Sure enough, he does and tries to lash out at you with a pair of high kicks. You easily dodge them with a sliding sweep of your own that nearly knocks him over. Mr. X keeps his footing though and goes for a grab, aiming for your neck. You easily avoid it and smack him in the face with a Ko'ouken, a couple people in the crowd starting to do an "Aaaay" chant when you start to do another one. Mr. X takes the brunt of that hit and tries to slide under what he assumed was going to be a third projectile but was, in fact, a "Super Kick".You hear some guy start yelling "GOLD-BERG!" after that last shot to Mr. X's head, but also listen in to him getting bum-rushed by either security or other rowdy fans as Mr. X gets up and tries to rush you down with an odd, hunched-over run that has his hands down low. You fake another Ko'ouken and instead roll past his jumping spin kick, then chuck him into the ground with an Uchimata and back away, keeping your distance once more as you can plainly see Mr. X starting to get frustrated by your strategy."He's a busted flush that shouldn't have been out here... What the hell was Kazahaya thinking, letting him crash this party?" Any further thoughts of you easily coasting to a win get nullified as Mr. X jumps up off of the turnbuckle and hits you in the shoulder with a diving kick, then grabs you by the collar of your outfit. You struggle to break free as he lands a kick to your stomach that rockets you to nearly the other side of the ring. You land near one of the turnbuckles and use the ropes to get back up to your feet and get some air back into your lungs, but hear Mr. X running towards you and nearly take a Dropkick to the face.You do some kind of hand-slap-away thing you remember seeing some pro-wrestlers do to "No Sell" how dangerous that kick was, then hit him with a Hien Shippu Kyaku that hits him into the turnbuckle. You briefly consider doing some more Wrasslin' moves to him while you can, but Mr. X rolls away and gets back to trying to hit you, his next few strikes reeking of desperation the same way that one boxer's did.>(Roll 3d20 with each vote.)>A.

>>712222>>712173Seeing Mr. X kind of back away from you after that last hit in the turnbuckle gives you a crazy idea, one that the crowd cheers as you run towards him and get in range to land a "Left Hook/Right Straight/Strayacut" combination. Though Mr. X eats the first two punches, he blocks the uppercut and goes to throw you with that same kind of SAMBO-like Suplex Ivanovich used. You quickly get to your feet from it though and narrowly miss getting kicked in the side of your ribs, Mr. X losing his balance and opening himself up for you to land some Zanretsuken punches. "ORAORAORAORA ORA!" you hear yourself yell as you continue your assault, but you get greedy and give Mr. X the opportunity to intercept your last punch, then grab and toss you over to the other side of him."Right, OK, he can still fight." You find yourself in the center of the ring and nearly get hit by a cutting, blade-like attack coming out of Mr. X's upward-swinging arm. "Fuckin'ell, that stings!" He doesn't recover as quickly as you would've thought and punish him with another quick "Strayacut", part of you careful not to let too much of your naturally electrified Ki spill out of your fist in case some old-timer from when you did these kind of tournaments recognizes you. Mr. X rolls back to his feet though and tries to urgently corner you, his desperate flurries of punches & kicks starting to to resemble a man desperate to rub a genie out of a lamp. You block most of them without much trouble and the hits that do land aren't enough to make you worry as you trip him up with an Uchimata, some asshole in the crowd yelling "Do Something Else!""Yeah, guess I'm a grappler at heart after all...

The force of that nearly knocked the wind out of you and you were lucky that Mr. X's follow-up punch to your face only kind-of grazed your cheek."He must be warmed up now... Shit, and here I thought this was going to be easy." You clutch the side of your face that hurts and glare at Mr. X, who's oddly gloating about how he missed with a silent pantomime to play to the crowd, who are starting to turn on you...? "Nah, fuck that mate. You should've just ran a bloody race team!" You let out a roar of agonized frustration and try to land a couple of your wild-looking Zanretsuken punches on him, rage overcoming rational thought for just long enough for him to block and get you into that collar-grab from before. You can really feel him squeezing on you tight and for half a second you think you saw some kind of dark aura start to surround his lower body. He throws you over his shoulder with a Judo move you don't remember the name of (Different than your Ippon Seoinage), then feel that aura almost on top of you as you scurry to try and get away from him."NOW YOU'RE DEAD!" Mr. X roars as he raises an arm to the sky, then slams his fist down to make a red spire of energy come out of the ground. Though you're able to get back onto your feet and block it, the force and power behind the impressively "Edgy" Desperation Move crushes your guard and that same feeling of stinging from his bladed wind arm-thing multiplied. It blasts you back into one of the turnbuckles again, Mr. X taking a second to try and wave out some of the excess energy from his wrist and giving you a breather to think up a plan to win this fight. >(Roll 3d20 with each vote.)>A.

>>712795>>712810"No more direct contact... I have to find a way to make him over-extend... And fuck, he's tougher than I though." You take a moment to reset your vision and get back up into your stance from early in the night, Mr. X finally done trying to exorcise the dark energy(?) from his arm. You stick by the corners of the ring for a second, then get a crazy idea that completely nullifies what you thought of when your mind snapped into focus. "Fuck it, I'll wait until AFTER I do this."You take two steps up to the very top of one of the octagonal ring's turnbuckles, a vision of some muscled guy who "Skipped Leg Day" writhing in agony over his calf snapping in two going through your head as you hop and fly through the air with your foot outstretched near Mr. X's neck and upper back. You manage to connect with the most awkward & basic version of Robert Garcia's "Hien Ryuujin Kyaku" kick, but fall down to the floor with Mr. X and take a moment to get back up, the crowd starting to cheer as that feeling of "This has gone on for too long" starts to creep back into your brain.Mr. X actually has to get back up slowly too and, being thrust in the role of "Face" for this fight, you do a little taunt to get the crowd pumped back up as Mr. X again tries to hit you with that "Wind Cutter" pseudo-projectile again. It hits you directly on one of the strap-like parts of your costume and nearly cuts it completely off as he fires off another one in succession. "Damn it you bloody pervert, not fucking now..." You snarl at him for that and try to hold your halter-top up for a second as Mr. X goes to land that flying back kick again. Though you block it, the force of it nearly has you against the ropes and Mr. X tries to put you away with an uppercut that almost looks like the one you've seen Andy Bogard use in old Fatal Fury match videos online."A little closer... Just a touch more..." You block what felt like eight solid hits, your guard nearly breaking as you hop back and hear yourself yell out a primal scream before going into the "Ryuuko Ranbuu". The sound of your punches & kicks hitting him after how long this fight has gone is a truly incredible sensation that's one of the biggest reasons why you'll probably never stop fighting unless you were medically forced to quit, but you hear the sound of the bell ringing as your last "Strayacut" launches Mr. X into the sky with a Electrified Ki that gets a couple of "Oohs" & "Ahhs" fromthe crowd.Time!" He shouted before unlocking and opening the cage door. Incredibly, Mr. X didn't seem to hear him as he got back up and charged towards you, so focused was he on continuing this fight. "Time!"Not wanting to get sucker-punched after the bell had rung, you decided to oblige and the two of you just kept fighting. The Announcer sighed and walked back out of the ring only to walk back in again carrying a bucket of what appeared to be ice-cold water to throw on both of you.>Cont.
>>713145"WHAT THE FUCK!?" Yes, yes it was indeed ice-cold water. The two of you disengaged long enough to gaze upon the Announcer in shock and shivers, some of the crowd giving you some whistles & cat-calls over how the water made your outfit a tad more revealing than it had been."What was that for?!" Mr. X demanded, taking the words right out of your mouth."I said 'Time'!" The Announcer/Referee explained testily. "As in the time is up. This fight has expired. We gotta end the fight and get on with the night, because everyone wants to go home!""Well, who won?" you ask, crossing your arms under your chest."Well, which of you feel less hurt or less exhausted?" The referee asked, sounding like he was talking to a couple of toddlers as the crowd started to make sounds of discontent."I feel fine" Mr. X announced, his "Kayabe" breaking again before he coughed and cleared his throat. "I could go all night if I had to! For I... Am Mr.X.""Nice bluff asshole." "So can I." you add, then glared at Mr. X.The Announcer sighed "Then I guess it's a draw", then turned around to face the the crowd, holding up your arm alongside Mr. X's and shouted, "Draw!" into the microphone.There was such a loud roaring of "Boos" that part of you feared they might try to riot; Because the fight came out as a draw, no one got to collect any winnings on their bets... Though Mr. X had a more pressing matter to attend to."Wait one damn minute! Who gets the money?!""I'dunno." The Announcer shrugged. "I don't make the rules, ask The Wind.""Of all of the fucking..." The two of you did exactly that. "The Wind" was already waiting for the both of you when you exited the cage that surrounded the ring, food and garbage getting rained down on both of you as the security struggled to keep the unruly mob in check. You silently noted that "Fuujin" & Raijin" were flanking him and that he had a ledger that was tucked under one arm and a pen behind his ear, his free arm on his hip in the pose of an irritated parent."Hey, hey, hey! I can't be having draws at my fights" Kazahaya exclaimed before he shook his head. "How do you expect me to make money with results like this?""You expect one of us to throw the fight?" Mr. X asked, crossing his arms over his chest. The action was meant to appear defiant, but Kazahaya only raised an eyebrow."I only require the people I'm paying to throw fights for me." He answered. "As it is now, neither of you are on my group's pay roll so all I can do is give you a slap on the wrists. But still... only one of you can truly be declared the winner. It seemed there's only one thing to be done.""Continue outside?""Jan, Ken, Pon." Kazahaya smiled flippantly. "Best two out of three.">A. Shrug your shoulders and get it over with.>B.

>>713449>>713470 "What the fuck Kaz? This isn't like you at all" you ask, almost yelling at him for juvenile settling thousands upon thousands of dollars over a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors sounds... Then see a reason why he might want to settle this affair quickly & quietly: Fugetsu appearing in a cloud of smoke with a Kunai up near his neck."You... You cheated me out of my rightful victory against Kykoguenryuu!""She doesn't really do their classes anymore, right?" Kazahaya asks, "Fuujin" & "Raijin" carefully extracting themselves from the situation."I swear to christ Kaz..." "I quit Kyokugenryuu a long time ago" you fib, adding a quick "I hate them" to really try and sell it."... Then why would you...?""Because I wanted to see if I still had some fight in me" Mr. X- No, Andrew admits. "Tonight proved that I don't.""Well I'dunno, you kind of got goin' on me at the end there" you start to casually say, one eye on Fugetsu (Who looks a little like you did when you were... 12? 13? Puberty hit you like a mac truck) as she starts to slowly draw the knife ever-so-farther away from Kazahaya's jugular."I had to use dark forces I swore I would never touch just to keep up with you out there" Andrew admits, his masked gaze probably looking down at the hand he had to shake that excess energy out of. "I'm not worthy to fight on this level anymore.""Kaz... Just give her the money.""What?" he asks before Fugetsu"Fuck it, time to be the bigger girl." "She would've beaten me, alright? Because I'm not even a Kyokugen Black-Belt yet and Yuri Sakazaki would've kicked my ass out there had she been in the ring fighting me... Just like Fugetsu would've destroyed me"Hearing that seemed to calm Fugetsu as she finally withdrew her blade from Kazahaya's neck, but instead gently pokes him in the back while "Whispering" a grave warning in his ear: "If you ever so decide to insult me, or my master, or anyone of the dozens of Kisaragi Ninjutsu practitioners out there like this again? ... Your friends, your family, your riches and wealth will begone in a sea of fire."Kazahaya croaks out a "OK!" and Fugetsu disappears in a different cloud of smoke, a small wooden log with a not tied to it left behind."Just give me the keys to your place and enough for cab fare Kaz; I'm tired and need to sleep" you tell him, then nearly jump back when you see Hatsune Horikawa open the door to the locker room all of you were in."So, "The Wind" is it?" she asked. "I couldn't help but notice that the fight came to a draw..."Kazahaya sighed as she rubbed her hands together expectantly. "That it did, Harikēn-san... Damn you, you've got the devil's luck. Come over to my office and we'll settle it."Kazahaya left almost instantly after that, his two escorts following closely. Hatsune wnet to follow him but then paused, muttering "There's a little bar down the street. Why don't you go have a drink or something?">Cont.
>"What?" he asks before Fugetsu tightens her grip.Fixed.>>713948"I don't... What the... Fuck it, I'm going home." "Nah, I need to get some sleep tonight. Big day of rest ahead of me tomorrow."Hatsune smiles at you and says "You did good Fortuna" before she left, Andrew asking "A friend of yours?" as he finally takes off his mask."Hardly... I lost it and broke her daughter's arm in a sparring match. She's out to get her revenge on me sooner or later... But we've had a few beers together and I don't really hate her, so...?" you start to explain, then let a yawn out and rub your eyes. "What time is it?""... Midnight? I have no clue either.""Too late for this shit sounds more like it... I'm gonna take off.""You need money for cab fare, or?""Nah, I'll wait until Kaz settles with Harikēn-san. I want those keys" you elaborate as you sit back down on the bench and take off your mask, Andrew wincing at some of the cuts and bruises you got tonight."Fuck, I hope I didn't cause all of those...""Nah, not all of them. And it comes with the territory anyway; No fighter worth their salt has a pretty face after a while."Andrew looks you over one more time, then says "See you later... Or not" before heading through that fake locker door, that nervousness from the car ride present on his face and in his voice. "... Maybe... No... I'll sleep on it; The jury's still out on that nutter." You quickly brush up your make-up, strip back down to your bare ass, put on the clothes you came into this place with (Fresh & Clean, just like the other set you had asked to be washed) and, for a lark, decide to follow Andrew through the fake door at the very end of T-shaped locker room you were in, a dark corridor and a flight of stairs leading you up to a dark corner of one of Kazahaya's many nightclubs he owns, some retro-80's synth-pop being played and trying to worm it's way through your ears.New Thread Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkmXIIL8Caw You get a tap on your shoulder from a waiter, then turn around to see a blank check, a $100 bill and a set of keys on his plate. "For me?" you half-yell."Yep! From the boss himself!"You give him a smile, grab the stuff, make your way through the club and out onto the very, very dark streets of South Town and hail a cab to take you to your new/old home-away-from-home, only waking back up when you arrive.===>End Updates Thanks so much for sticking through to the end of this thread y'all!
