GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>She shrugs slightly at that, it's... A thing she supposes. </i> &quot;Yeah yeah, Taylor. Skitter is more just a nickname at this point than any actual shield, I don't have family or real friends here anyway so. Nobody to target if anyone cared to.&quot; <i>After handing over the juice and quietly paying for it she'd leap over the counter with casual ease and take a seat. </i> &quot;As for the supernatural... I have, and I still don't like it. I was pretty sure that stuff was just in stories till I ended up here, Parahumans like me have <b>some</b> vague logic to us. In a sci-fi sorta way. But the people here just shatter even that so... Sure, magic. I have no better name for most of it. How bout you?&quot;

<i>Taylor would just wave to the magical girl with a slight nod. It's not like she has any reason to care, hell. Taylor herself only barely cares and that's solely because of her father, it'd be nice to see him again. But frankly she's better off here anyways, probably. </i> &quot;See ya around Sayaka, I forget some of us still go to school honestly. Too much of a pain for me to bother with when I'm doing fine on my own. Good luck though, I'm sure you can handle it. Probably.&quot; <i>With that she'd just shrug a bit before absently taking the mask off, revealing a fairly young face and pair of green-ish eyes as she just walks behind the counter before pulling out a bottle of orange juice. </i> &quot;And eh, call me Taylor kid. Not like anyone cares much about the whole secret identy thing around here, I mostly just wear the mask out of habit now. Or maybe tradition? Something like that, oh and you want anything?&quot; <i>She'd place a bit of money in the register, no sense in stealing when she can pay. Sure it's unmanned, but whatever. They can keep the change. </i>

<i>The girl laughs in an intensely bitter voice as she looks at Asami, that's... No. Just no. </i> &quot;In all honestly kid? Earth-Bet was a hellhole and I'm glad to be gone, literal giant monsters wiping out half of a city was an event that happened every few months. Behemoth, an unkillable brute that killed more Parahumans than anything else in the world. Leaving behind vast zones of radiation behind in its wake. Leviathan, impossibly fast for a 30 foot tall beast, and a fucking macro-hydrokinesis user, it sank wo entire islands on its own, higher direct death count than any other Endbringer... Then the last.&quot; <i>She'd actually pause for a moment at that point, shuddering visably, and even despite the costume covering up her face it's plain to see Skitter is by far the most concerned by this one.</i> &quot;The Simurgh, world's most powerful precog, world's only telepathy user known, world's most powerful mind controller, capable of casually flinging around buildings with her brain. Weakest of them physically, still able to shrug off multiple nukes. And capable of casually creating dimino effects to make life worse with that unstopped precognition... Yeah no, Earth-Bet can stay out of my life. Hopefully forever.&quot; <i>There's a twinge of guilt in the girl's words, she's not expanding on the reason there while absently taking a seat at the juice bar and just sighing heavily. Even thinking about those nightmares again was at least as exhausting as the fight.</i> <i>After taking a moment from finishing that little rant, she'd absently nod to Sayaka. Right right, makes sense. She never did ask about that much around here.</i> &quot;Gotcha... Well you have a vague idea of the kinda world I'm from now, even ignoring the literal walking ends of the world. It wasn't exactly great, but eh. I won't get into those details.&quot;

<i>The young woman would wobble her hand a bit, the fact they don't know what a Parahuman is... Or even call it by one of Aleph or Bet, says they aren't from her brand of dimensions.</i> &quot;Ehhh... Only helps so much. There's more than just the one Earth, which is common knowledge where I'm from but doesn't exactly seem known around here as much. I blame the lack of Tinkers mostly, it's their fault other dimensions ever ended up proven where I'm from. Which uh, are bascially people who's superpower is making tech even they don't quite understand.&quot; <i>She'd shrug slightly, going down the entire list of PRT power types is... A thing she could do, but that sounds silly unless anyone asks for it. </i> &quot;I'm gonna guess people with superpowers wasn't exactly a public thing where you're from though, huh Sayaka? And neat that you two are both healers, most powers back home were... Not good for healing. At all.&quot;
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>She'd sigh a bit, damn. Still would have gotten killed there in a real fight... Ugh... </i> &quot;Heh, sorry... I could try and make it more solid, that sorta works. Sometimes.&quot; <i>The part she isn't admitting there is that would have needed more time to focus, Termite's acid can be changed. But it isn't an instant process or anything... And as for the other point, Taylor would shrug slightly. </i> &quot;And that's a fair point, but I usually am <b>much</b> more careful about letting people be close, in fact. My power is bug control, typical field use is to just hospitalize who I can from long range and be done with it. You admittedly would require more specialized methods.&quot; <i>There's a pause at that point, her voice becoming slightly amused.</i> &quot;Heh, only other person I've fought with a self healing power anywhere around yours was a dude who turns into a dragon. Doubt there's any connection there though, in fact I'd guess you probably aren't from Earth-Bet, right?&quot;
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>The girl would smirk slightly at that... Well then, that's a bit rough. But she can roll with it. Before that grab can entirely set in Sayaka would find the entire girl covered in a barrier of acid, easily melting through much of the floor as Skitter hopes it can push the other young woman back in a burst of power that would hopefully leave her stunned for a bit. With any luck anyways. If this last trick of Termite's doesn't pan out though, she'll really have no choice but to admit defeat. </i> &quot;Yeah it... Might well be, jeez. That's kinda my last trick I can try right now so it'll have to work out if I'm gonna keep going... Otherwise you've won, honestly.&quot; <i>That's all she can say right now, despite the stupid voice in the back of her head urging her to for more extreme and untested attempts.</i>
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>Right, Brute powers... Fuck it, time to get completely serious instead of only mostly.</i> &quot;Two souls beating as one. Unison.&quot; <i>Nothing more than that needs to be said as the hammer quickly melts down into a black liquid that would reform as a pair of large clawed gauntlets over Taylor's hands, like heavily armored insect themed weapons. If the acid wasn't enough though, she'd likely end up sent flying back. Merely banged around by impact to the newly formed weapons rather than cut to shreds. Which seem to be leaking a much stronger acid that would be used in an attempt to not only parry the other girl with suddenly far greater strength, but melt through her sword and indeed even flesh if the weapon came in contact with Sayaka's body. She's faster now too, though not by nearly as much as her strength was enchanced. And in that regard Sayaka still has the edge... Though she'd notice it now seems to be raining acid as well, acid which Taylor can casually evade no matter what that pours from the mouths of her now sickly green looking flying bugs.</i> &quot;I guess I couldn't expect to win holding back on you, huh? That would just be silly... This should even things out a bit though.&quot;
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
&quot;Yeah, but you didn't come in wearing that outfit... I like to keep tabs on where things in my vicinity. Never know what kind of nasty shocks you might get if your guard is down.&quot; <i>Her spiders that had been dropped are sadly left unable to dodge, but the flying ones... They move with an unnatural speed and focus, clearly pushing themselves with no regard for possible damage to their body longterm. Absolute control is like that, and it's enough to dodge for now. As for the girl herself though, she'd be forced to slam Termite into the ground for a bit to keep from being moved too far. Any pain she might feel doesn't really seem to bother the young Cape. </i> &quot;Water though... May have to treat this a bit like fighting Lung, he was uh. A dude who could turn into a dragon, had a pretty strong healing factor, lotta fire. Couldn't withstand thousands of bugs biting and stinging all at once though, got knocked out.&quot; <i>Somehow all the talking Skitter is doing doesn't even slow her down a bit at all, she can't push against the water pressure, but she can have a swarm of flying bugs watch Sayaka from all postions above while getting pushed back. Most people would be stunned a bit by flying backwards that way, she merely sends a burst of acid blasting out from the black hammer with a curious look on her face, not strong enough to be lethal yet, but if the glob of putrid liquid that flies overhead to try and get past the water hit it might hurt some. Hopefully. </i>
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>The young woman would giggle a bit as a large black hammer just... Seeps out from her right wrist, almost leaping into her hands as she places the rather large weapon in front of Sayaka's blade with a grin. </i> &quot;Hah, yeah I can sorta get that! I'd guess you aren't a Parahuman like me, but I can't help from feeling drawn to conflict with others who've got powers...&quot; <i>Sayaka is probably stronger, there isn't any working around that. But the swarm of insects bursting out from under Taylor's armor might at least cause to be distracted a bit, even more since some of the flying ones seem to be carrying spiders, spiders that would aim to get their webbing into her eyes if given a chance. If the other girl focused upon blocking this small barrage of insects though, she'd quickly be met with Termite slamming towards her chest... That's if she reacts like the cape hopes though, and betting on that is never safe when it comes to other superhumans.</i> &quot;Pretty fast, by my world's standards you'd probably be... Brute and Mover I suppose, can't guess at ratings though. Matter creation too... Interesting, form of magic then?&quot; <i>She's musing aloud to herself as much as anything, not like she'd expect the other girl to explain her powers.</i>
GTM Deluxe: Caped Combat
<i>The girl would raise an eyebrow under her mask, looking over at Sayaka with a curious expression... If only anyone could see it.</i> &quot;Oh, same here actually. Since... Yeah about two and a half years ago. I just kind of found myself here one day without any clue what was going on, the whole gang busting thing was half needing money half them just being horrible. And I still have no clue what's going on half the time, honestly...&quot; <i>She'd rub the back of her head, sounding a bit geniunely apologetic. </i> &quot;Well, sorry about thinking you were new then. I'm just... Not used to anyone that experience doing an intro like that, it was kinda cool though, almost like someone going for a more golden age kinda deal! Nice to meet ya Sayaka.&quot; <i>As for the fox girl, she'd shake her head a bit at that.</i> &quot;I do go by Skitter, yeah. But my power isn't bug summoning exactly, just control. Oh and uh did you wanna practice Sayaka? I'm not very sword proof, just kinda resistant, but I usually hold my own!&quot;

<i>A young woman with brown hair down to her shoulders waving in the wind would step into the building, not even glancing around and still knowing its contents all too well. Well... She knows the currently unstaffed juice bar with several stools, a small room off to the side with a couch and a few seats. But then over in a corner of the room, past the large fighting ring with some kind of mystic runes inscribed it, presumably to keep damage from spilling out, there's a computer console? Hmm, that she has to examine personally rather than leaving to the bugs that currently float about absently through the building. Upon closer looking she'd realize it seems to be some kind of VR fighting set up, which is clearly new to this place since last she's come here. Unexpected, but might be useful. A good chance to use her more brutal tactics without risking lasting harm to anyone she doesn't want to give lifelong issues.</i> &quot;Huh, cool... Tinkertech maybe? Then again, it's simple enough I mostly understand how to use it so probably not. And I haven't exactly seen any Tinkers around here anyway...&quot; <i>She'd trail off into her own thoughts, eyes focused upon the console even as she looks around the entire building at once. Not to mention the backyard and near the entrance outside. There's a fly on every wall after all.</i>
Tokyo Streets: Shibuya Scramble
<i>[i]In the morning light of Tokyo, various people wander through the large clearing as buildings tower above. So many people that one could barely make any of them out, all likely going to work and school and whatnot.</i> &quot;Gah, this place is way too busy. What are we even doing here huh?&quot; <i>A young woman in the crowd would mutter to herself, making her way through it with shocking ease as various small insects flit about ahead of her. After a while, she'd come to a somewhat quiet, darkened bit of the area.</i> &quot;Hmm, looking for someone who seems worth our time? Not a bad idea, but I'm not so sure about them being around here... Oh well, not like we've got anything better to do either.&quot; <i>She'd shrug to herself, watching various points in the crossing through the insects floating around. After all, maybe Termite has a point. There <b>are</b> plenty of people here, so perhaps someone interesting will stumble by via sheer chance.</i>
Under Night In-GYM!
<b>Somewhere in the dark shadows of a rundown part of Tokyo, a building that's all too well kept for the area sits. A sign above it reading &quot;GYM&quot; as a woman in a suit of insect-like armor wanders through the front door, face covered by a mask with lenses akin to the eyes of a bug as she flips on the lights and gazes around the empty room. </b> &quot;Huh, here I was hoping the place would be filled... Oh well, guess it is a bit earlier than usual. Kinda feels like it's been ignored for a bit though, could just be me.&quot; <b>She'd shrug and keep on walking, it's clean surely... But something just feels like it's been empty for some reason, regardless, however, anyone walking by would notice the door opened, the lights on, and the sign outside flicking to life. Skitter herself on the other hand simply reaches down to her waist and pulls a baton off it, walking toward a training dummy and beginning to slam her weapon into it. Her movement's fairly practiced, yet one familiar with such things might note a bit of stiffness and perhaps a bit slower than she should be. As if she'd prefer not to rely on physical combat most times.</b>
Mikage Sun Mall
<i> A young girl in a black shirt and a pair of jeans wanders down a street, she'd look around absently for a moment before spotting... Oh, a mall, she's not the biggest fan, but with nothing better to do Taylor would go inside regardless.</i> &quot;Haven't been anywhere like this for a while, not since landing here in Tokyo...&quot; <i> She looks around the building, finding a rather large cherry blossom tree at the center... Hmm, a few butterflies swarming around there, hidden in the leaves to most. She'd shake her head and stop focusing on her power, instead looking across the street at a closed off building with a sign reading &quot;Tatsuya's Armory&quot;, too bad that's not open, she should drop in later. Beyond that, she'd find the various normal shops any mall has, along with some place that oddly stands out called a Peace Dinner... And a chained up blue door in a back alley she can't help being drawn to, there's something odd here but it's clearly not open for her. With that, Taylor simply walks over to a wishing fountain and takes a seat on the edge, absently humming to herself and feeling out the various insects around her with her powers.</i> &quot;Huh, wonder if it's always so quiet around this place? No Brockton Bay, that's for sure.&quot;
GYM: Heads Will Roll!
<i> A young woman in black armor and a mask with yellow tinted bug-eye lenses walks up to a building, below the mask there's a determined look on her face as she goes through the doors... Only to find it empty, no locked door, but for some reason the whole place is empty.</i> &quot;Well, I guess there's nobody around right now? Hmm, that's fine then, I can just mess around some and pass the time for now.&quot; <i> She'd never properly examined the place last time, but it seems very large. Takes up most of the street it's on really, there's various training dummies and workout equipment around, and oddly there seem to be more fire extinguishers than needed... Must be the fireballs? Beyond that, there appears to be an unmanned drink bar over in a corner, and a door on the back wall leading out to a yard. That said and done, Taylor would prop the back door open with a chair and focus... As she does so, a large swarm of various flying bugs rushes in through the door, along with some more crawling along the ground as well. They absently perform flips and rolls in the air, even some flies picking up the grounded ones and carrying them as the girl leans on a wall and stares at the front door. Watching and waiting, hopefully, she'll get someone to practice against.</i>
