Fuck ICBMs, seriously.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<i>[Such an overly choreographed move won't work, not on Kazuya, not on me. I do have trouble concentrating for that moment, however, as I get distracted by Byakuran's...dare I say, "low IQ" speak. The claws miss, but the jacket is cut open vertically, revealing the tight, light black armor under the now damaged green, heavy jacket. I keep it on, however, as there is not time or reason to take it off. Not to mention, dealing with the COMP will be a hassle. I take a deep breath and glare back at Byakuran. I need to think my next move, since just running ahead won't work just like that.]</i>
That was close, but you missed the mark. Sounds familiar, don't you think?
<i>[Indeed, his reasoning makes no sense, or at least seems to make some pretty big jumps in logic. Furthermore, whatever he said does not apply to me.]</i>
Peace can't be forced, that's asking for humans to let go of freedom.
Kindness is from the heart; it is impossible to force.
Indeed, people like you should not exist, as you just implied.
<i>[I already know what I will do, but I need to hold my ground for this. My next attack will either be a counterattack, or I will rush ahead. Whatever is the case, it will be twice the damage. I "Charge" as I extend my arms and smile at Byakuran, who, although me be taller than me, I hope understands I'm looking down on him. So low on the scale that he can't even see without glasses and surgery.]</i>
You said you hate humans, implying you either aren't or see yourself as not part of us. Whatever the case, only we, "humans", get to have a choice.
You on the other hands, don't. Not anymore.
That's why we are here, because it's clear you are doing something "wrong".
Because you are a mistake.
<i>["Charge" is done, and I make sure my "overconfidence" is notorious. If he tries to get close in some way or form, as in himself, or those black claws, I will retaliate with Lightspeed Slash. Otherwise, I'm rushing in with Mist Rush. Whatever happens, I'm prepared, I just need to act properly. These are simply ideas, not automatic to apply.]</i>
And we're correcting it.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<i>[That was the moment in which I knew exactly what it was that I was dealing with here. I did not know his power, or his life, or even why exactly it was that he was doing this. Normally, in law you would find such details ideal, perhaps even critical when making a verdict. Not unlike life, really. But... this kind of disregard... it's not clouding my mind, but I feel like I'm about to explode all the same. Perhaps, in time like these, one must let go of the past and only focus in what's right ahead, in what they are doing.]</i>
You know, I want to be a prosecutor. Once I'm back home, I'll simply continue with college and then graduate. I will eventually memorize most of the laws and articles of different legal codes. I will meet many people, criminals that go from petty thieves to brutal rapists.
<i>[What is right ahead is that man, Byakuran, who simply refered to human beings as tools and toys. I wonder why the word "Angel" was the designation for this world. Is this what an "Angel" is? Is it as devoid of meaning as simply wearing white? I grab on to the sword on my back, the Hinokagutsuchi. My grip is tight, but my hands are starting to hurt from the force.]</i>
I've...always believed in one thing only, and that's doing the right thing. To use law for good, and to oppose it if it ever got out of hand; to champion some values of my own choosing, that made sense, but to disregard them once they stood in the way. I'm practical like that, but... I always held human rights to the highest regard.
<i>[I unsheathe the two-handed blade, but keep it in my right hand only, the tip of the sword touching the floor. I've kept my eyes closed the entire time, since thsi realization.]</i>
I always wondered if killing really was a solution, if I had the guts to do it.
Even now, I have to wonder.
A prosecutor needs to solve things by finding out the truth no matter what, to serve the interests of people, and yet...
<i>[I can't doubt myself. I won't doubt myself. There is much on the line. I open my eyes and glare at Byakuran with an intensity I haven't felt in months. I could see it so clearly now, all that's been given to me, through his way of acting, through his words, paint one singular image. If this is the man that we must stop, if he is willing to do this and throw away people so easily, if that Sinbad was a maniac with god-like powers, then this one won't be much different.]</i>
I already know what I have to do right here, right now. This isn't <i>my</i> world.
The only truth I need is the one, there.
<i>[I point at his face with my blade. I feel my eyes water a bit. I don't quite get why.]</i>
Your eyes keep confessing your crimes.
Because you can disregard life so easily, because you objectify human beings, because you can inflict pain so nonchalantly, because your powers exceed that of what humans should be allowed, because someone like you should not exist, because I can't bring you to justice...!!!
<i>[I hold the blade with both hands and prepare myself by pointing it behind me. There really was no other solution, was there.]</i>
I will bring it to you!!
<i>[Kazuya's body is entirely normal, and even more so now. But his body remembers, his power isn't that he can overcome things with brute force, but by merit of training, skill and experience. His body has to remember, it must! I rush at Byakuran at full speed and aim two incredibly quick, well placed wide slashes aimed specifically at the knee joints, or at the very least the legs, because, even if I can't cut the legs completely, they should be hit in such a way that movement becomes noticeably difficult. This is a "Crescent Slash", two strikes that lower the enemies' agility considerably.]</i>
rp master race, arr pee reigns supreme
do you vant to continue yes orr no
Appreciate her, because you never know when she's going to be gone
That, or you could tell her to stop, be nice
Chapter Two: A White Century
<i>[Something about that answer ticks me the wrong way. Him just hurting another without a good reason doesn't sound like what the other guy, Gamma, was implying as the character of this guy, and furthermore, he seemed to be wanting to inject a strange liquid into Yuni... I've been thinking about the possibility since Gamma mentioned it, but maybe that's how he made her so...docile? I think that's the word. He also seems to be a "genius", and thinking the way media writers and normal people tend to use it, means he is a cunning bastard, which is my first hint at his more complicated nature; which means he is just lying to me, see how I react. Of course, I can't take away my glare from him, but I won't let him get to me. Above all, I want to believe we can solve this without having to fight, or worse, killing him.]</i>
Of course not, I know for sure you have another reason which you won't give because you're trying to be intimidating.
Did you see that as a possibility? That somehow giving us too much information is dangerous?
<i>[He knew already, but we are aware of this uncanny ability. I just don't know to what extent it goes, and so, don't even know how to counter it. With my reply, I go back to thinking. His phrasing is interesting to say the least. Why the mafia? Why even go for "hypocritical"? I know that kind of thinking all too well. He has some understanding of morality and is acting out on it with an end in mind; hell, he's even mocking the girl. This is all conjecture and a possibility, but I'm thinking that this guy is moving towards something, not just to move up in the world, which, I would assume, has done up until this point, but did it to do something, to achieve something greater. I would imagine then, that this guy could be in a "righteous crusade", wanting to do good or create justice through any means necessary.]</i>
I'll ask again, why are you doing this? All these things are too complicated and too actually thought about for it to be simply "boredom".
Is it to control the mafia? Is it to eliminate it? Don't tell me you fancy the world.
<i>[Then again, I could be wrong and I might be dealing with a Joker knock-off crying about society. At the very least, he is not the kind of extremist that would murder every single one. Rather, he at least makes exceptions, but what is it that these guys have that he would need? I'm guessing their powers... which, I will assume for now, are not all that common.]</i>
What's YOUR Arcana?
Foolishness, I was already married to Mish, therefore whatever Mona just pulled is null
I null your ass<div class='edited'>(edited by Kazuya)</div>
What's YOUR Arcana?
And besides, no one can have a cooler arcana than me.
I'm Justice, and therefore, the law, and since my pfp is The Hero from SMT1, and I'm the Law, that means I'm the Hero King

POSE-OFF!! Gambling with the Joestars!! [Nexus Bravers]
The stage was set, the lights were on and the cameras were rolling. Action, passion and flashy poses would be broadcasted all aroudn the city as these two teams clash with all their might and heart.
It was destiny these two bloody groups would collide, the storm cannot be avoided, tearing down all around as the other teams just watch in silence, realizing these two definitely will blow the competition away.
Standing proud at the center of this stage, he stood. Kazuya had his finger pointed to the sky with a microphone on his other hand.
"Alright everyone, let's do this as if it was the end of the world!!!!"
The young man shouts as he leaves the stage, waiting for both his team and opponents to gather.
[P.H.R.I.E.N.D.S] Episode 3: "The One Where the Phans Get Mail"
(Third sitcom thread, yay.)
"You got mail."
<i>[The computer vibrates or something on the desk as the people laugh their asses off. Kazuya would rush from the bathroom with nothing but a wet towel around his waist going all the way to his ankles. The young man looks at the computer and nods.]</i>
Hey, I got mail!
<i>[Kazuya has, indeed, got mail. He decides to check the damn thing, and then he notices something strange.]</i>
Hey, I got mail, but this message isn't meant for me!
What EVER would I do in this situation?
<i>[He says as he looks at the camera and some guy literally dies of laughter. The door to his apartment is, of course, unlocked like in every american sitcom there is to know.]</i>
Calm & Relax: The view at Tokyo Tower
<i>[As part of his strange desire to explore the city of Tokyo, Kazuya decides to visit the ever popular Tokyo Tower. The tall construction, towering above the nearby buildings would give a very nice and beautiful look at all the city around, or as much as it's possible to see. He neevr visited it, not a single time in his entire life.]</i>
It was about time too.
<i>[Nothing seemed to be happening on the city below, but you never know when it comes to this world. Kazuya gets closer to the window, simply enjoying the view.]</i>
Calm & Relax: The "Arcade Town" Mall at Kichijouji
<i>[It was very close to his home, sure. But every now and then, one should go out and enjoy what you have at your side. That's exactly what this young man was doing. Years ago, when he was nothing but a junior, he would come here fairly often. Back then Arcades were very popular, perhaps a bit more than it used to be, and this was Kichijouji's biggest arcade indeed.]</i>
It sure brings some good memories back...
<i>[The mall is, of course, not very big. But it made clear the main attraction. This mall had two floors. The first one had a bunch of different restaurants, cafes and smaller shops that sold rings, clothes and even knife collections. While the second floor was entirely dedicated to arcades and games.]</i>
Now their name makes much more sense.
<i>[Kazuya laughs as he heads inside of the mall, wondering where he should go check now, or rather, where to begin.]</i>
The School of Strategy: Demon Negotiation 101
<i>[The familiar Dojo stood where it should. At the feet Mount Fuji, everything was silent, and not even the small and cute animals ran in this ample terrain. Yes, it was as it always was. However, the Dojo was closed and no one but Kazuya was sitting in front of the door. A closer look at it would make it clear that the door was locked.]</i>
I wonder if they will show up this time, the training will take a different turn...
<i>[Kazuya looks at his COMP for a brief moment, wondering who would be a good idea to use at this time, especially if some of them could easily freak out or immediately attack. Perhaps Pixie or Jack Frost, even Shiki-Ouji.]</i>
Definitely, the bigger ones are a total no.
Pascal might be good for more advanced lessons...
<i>[Indeed, a lot was in his mind. From Ene, to Nana, to Takeno. The young man feels a bit restless as well, anxious even. However, now his class had more priority. He keeps looking at the clear sky as he lets the time pass.]</i>
Calm & Relax: Welcome to Yoyogi Park/
<i>[One can only guess how much he needed this right now. Ene was safe, so a small victory there indeed, but still, the stress of the time loops and the kids dying over and over was not something you can simply take off of your mind. No human, or at least not many can do it like that. Kazuya was resting under a tree, almost falling asleep as the wind gently caressed his cheek and ruffled his brown hair.]</i>
I still can't believe we made it...
<i>[Indeed, he felt happy. There was no better way to celebrate than going to a nice park and take breather after struggling for so long and alone. Luckily he had the help of a few friends.]</i>
<i>[Now he can take a better look at his surroundings. Green, shining grass. Tall, proud trees, and clear blue ponds of water, some with one or two beautiful bridges allowing to cross from one side to another. Some people were walking around and enjoying themselves, some dogs and cats even. Yes, a calm park like no other in this world.]</i>
The School of Strategy: Seven Heavens as One
<i>[At the feet of Mount Fuji, a small, wooden dojo stood proudly in the great, green fields. A small pond was at its side as small fish swam freely without any care for this world. Indeed, in a place such as this, it was not usual for any kind of building to be constructed, let alone for people to be around, however, here this dojo was, waiting for anyone to enter.]</i>
<i>[It was all in silence, not even the wind could be heard, and as the forests surrounding the place was all more than a mile away.]</i>
