GYM DX: Bar Brawl!
Click to go to bottom
A young woman stares down at her phone, muttering in an annoyed voice while gazing at directions upon it and shivering in biting winter air. "Come on, this GYM place has gotta be around here somewhere right...? The stupid map says its nearby but hell if I can find it." She'd rub the back of her head and sigh heavily, absently watching as glowing energy forms in her hand... And a bottle of whiskey appears it, Akia smiles slightly while wandering into a dark alley and taking a hearty swig from the bottle... She'd then realize that the GYM itself is within this shadowy alley, sign lit up brightly and the building in a well-maintained order. Upon realizing the door's open she would burst in and wave cheerily to. Nobody? Huh, seems she's alone for now. "Well, guess there's nothing to but mess around now huh? Hmm, maybe I can work something out though." She'd shrug and look around, there's some sort of fighting ring of course, makes sense. Also a computer over in a corner of the room? Oh and a juice bar, which is now an actual bar given that Akia has placed herself behind it, poured a glass of whiskey on the rocks and begun drinking it while 'running' the thing for now. Her eyes curiously observing the door in between sips.
{A perky looking young girl walks in a bit after Akia enters the GYM, humming to herself as she is obviously not the type to look like they should be going to bars at this hour. In fact, she takes the camera strapped around her neck and starts to take pictures everywhere, selfies included.} "Never hurts to have a depressing atmospheric aesthetic for a depressingly arid start to a new decade!~" {Upon inadvertedly taking a picture behind the juice bar, she finally notices Akia right behind her. Initially, she jumped in surprise, but then swept her hair off to the side and breathed a sigh of relief. The girl puts her camera back down and smiles at the new but not really new arrival.} "Oh, hello there! Do you know who uh, works at this establishment? I kind of forgot what it was supposed to be..."
“I never really thought much of this place...” Sen Megumiba, a high school student and resident of the city had occasionally passed through these streets, but always thought it was nothing. Still, it was only yesterday that she had heard of the place in... Unusual contexts. So the girl decided to check it out. For now she remains lurking by the door, watching the inhabitants of the building

Akia would chuckle a little bit while looking at the younger girl, the twenty something is clearly amused to see this random kid wandering into some kind of superpowered fight club... Who knows, maybe they're Inscribed too? "Haha, no idea! I only just got to town yesterday in fact~ My name's Akia though, did you come here to fight!?" She chrips in a cheery tone while taking another sip from the glass of whiskey, a glass that's now half empty at that. "I'm really hoping yes, because I wanna see what kinda powers people have around here!" It only takes a few seconds for the woman to begin dashing toward the GYM's flat fighting area while waiting for a reply.
{The girl giggles a bit from the other girl's response, being even more relieved that the girl wasn't as dry and boring as most other people are sometimes. She bows her head and replies.} "Oh, my name's Asena, I'm a novice photogra-oh wait, fight?" {As Asena's eyes blankly follow Akia going off toward the fighting area, she thinks to herself for a bit, putting her curled up fist under her chin to think for a bit, marinate on previous knowledge.} "Hmmmm, she wants to fight, she wants to see people's powers...I got it, a classic GYM battle! Don't worry, I'll be right there!" {She follows ahead, taking a leap toward the fighting area, skidding to a halt as she faces Akia, standing opposite to her. Asena closes one eye and does a signal with her hand to mimic that of a camera, then nodding and smiling at Akia. Afterwards, the girl waves at her, flashing a peace sign.} "You've got me excited, now! I'll restrain myself though, you can move first if you want."

The young woman smiles brightly at Asena while starting to properly introduce herself. "Right then, I'm Akia Sato. Bounty hunter by trade I suppose though I do all sorts of odd jobs. And my Epithet... Is Alcohol!!" Magical energy rushes from her right hand, a high speed burst of some indeterminate liquid that smells of strong alcohol rushing forward at the other girl. It isn't really high pressure enough to do direct damage, but if struck Asena would find her head going... A bit off to say the least, it depends on her tolerance for alcohol too but most would find themselves at least a bit tipsy and overconfident after such a strike. "I know I know, it doesn't sound that great in a fight at first. But trust me, I've got some tricks up my sleeves that make this power better than you'd think~!"
{The girl was starry-eyed at her introduction, only tilting her head slightly when hearing her power.} "Woah, that's amazing, I've never heard of that poower in my entire life!" {Asena perked her head back up as soon as she saw the liquid flowing towards her direction, immediately jolting back as she reached into her bag. Once she did, her hand extended outward, making a swiping motion towards the burst of alcohol. Her cosmic energy shot outward, and the star dust that goes ahead to meet the liquid makes it burst into a firework.} {She covered her head with her arm in hopes that it would cover her from anything, but at the same time, but at the same time, she doesn't expect the firework to make a cosmic blast of energy that shoots out in all directions. It overpowers the liquid, but it doesn't stop it from going everywhere as well. Asena only gets a tasting sample of alcohol, feeling a bit tipsy. Meanwhile, Akia is met with both 3 blasts of star light heading her way, plus some of her own alcohol returning back to her for a quick visit.} "...what? Oh, erm, oof. I felt something in my head. Well, that's quite a eccentric power you got there, Miss Akia! Mine was...well...you can find out for yourself. Just know that the stars aligned way too much in my favor there for some reason."

The woman laughs a little bit, that's a good indicator her Epithet is doing it's job to say the least. May not even need to bust out the hard stuff, but it wouldn't do to underestimate her foe... "Heh, right back at you. I've never seen an Epithet like this before! Oh and Wine Cloud!" Both her hands begin to burst out some red liquid for a moment, very hot liquid that turns into a thick cloud that conceals Akia. One of the blasts slams into her chest, but the Inscribed takes a moment to pause from her cover and... Slams both palms onto the ground, there's no visible effect upon the world as she darts out quickly and tries to close in on Asena. "Now then, next one les go! I've got a plan here and I'm curious if it'll work out!"
{The girl blinks her eyes a bit to fight off her tipsy urges, standing her ground as she looks towards Akia.} "Wine cloud? How quixotic! How much wine is in your system?" {She looks at Akia even more bright-eyed, pretty much in awe as she tries to advance towards her. Asena isn't taking that too seriously, moreso caught up with the ideas rushing in her head. As she reaches towards her, Asena takes out her camera and snaps a quick picture of her mid-rush, smiling as she did so.} "I really should snap a photo of this!" {The girl says, using her camera ironically enough not to just take a picture, but to also infuse it with her power to create a strong blinding light that would seem to get caught up in Akia's eyes were she to keep them open. Even then, it's still a very strong light. Afterwards, Asena reaches from behind her and digs a bit into the jacket she tied around her waist, taking out a retractible electric baton that eerily looks like a selfie stick.} "Ooo, very bold. Let's not right now..." {She practically slashes the air, letting the baton spark up for a bit before infusing it with her power as well. In turn, it creates a shockwave that takes form of an arc-shaped energy blast.}

Akia giggles at that accusation and just shrugs it off. Asena would however find a few things happening, one the light does indeed blind Akia. But she can still hear things, despite being a bit stunned she'd rocket up into the air, propelled by a high pressure burst of wine from her left hand that sends the Inscribed up up and away from the shockwave. The electricity does manage to graze her left leg though, and that would slow her down a bit upon landing closer to Asena. Secondly, right before the young woman lands she'd shout out happily and raise her right hand high. "Alcoholic's Paradise!" From below the ground a rushing geyser of champagne bursts upward like a cannonball. It's high pressure enough to send anyone struck rushing into the celling with a thud. Not to mention getting the victim drunker even if she didn't actually drink any. "Not bad huh? That's one of those moves that took a lotta practice to get down at first, but well worth it I think! Speaking of, I have something I wanna test next!"
{Asena, thanks to Akia's delayed landing, manages to save up some cosmic dust for whatever Akia has in store for her. She did not however, really expect a full-blown geyser of champagne for a moment. In fear of letting any more liquids hit her and having the potential of ruining her camera, she uses the amount of cosmic dust she had in hopes of avoiding it.} "Not this again!" {Instead of letting the geyser push her to the ceiling, she does so herself, kicking the ground and letting dust fly towards Akia as her bag faces downward toward the ground. As the champagne almost completely drenches her enough to leave her soaked, she barely leaves unscathed, now towards the ceiling. But now, Akia can see the girl floating in the air thanks to her cosmic dust, and slurring her words, her movements almost like that of a stiff mosquito.} "Ugghhh, yy-yyessss maamm. *hic* Ahem, totally! What'cha got next..."

The woman chuckles upon seeing her foe go that stiff, normally this is the part where she stabs them with a broken bottle. But instead her next move is to raise up both hands and gather more energy for a few seconds. "Alright, this is a brand new recipe so I'm not sure it'll do what I want! Especially since it isn't really Anything normal alcohol does... Nightmare Brew!" An inky black bubbly liquid rushes at Asena's floating form, a bit like beer but not anything anyone serves. If it struck true then... Well it might get her a bit more drunk, but mostly this drink seems to make the world seem just a bit darker and more frightening at first. The other fighter's smile twisting to seem meancing, the lights appearing to flicker a bit... But that's it for now. "Are you experiencing horrible visions of your worst fears or something!? That's the intent of that move but I'm not sure I have it down yet! Lemme know if it's working please~"
{Though the wielder seems to not know anything of what's going on, her cosmic dust starts to do work for her, making sure she doesn't fall when she floats in the air. However, while lightweight, the girl isn't completely intoxicated. Her eyes widen once she sees the mixture, and instead of trying to tackle it head-on, her figure turns backwards.} "Eeeeek! Not now! Not now!" {The girl actually goes ahead and runs away in a flash, not using her cosmic dust at all to attack, opting to use it as momentum to create a burst of light power that launches her towards the ceiling. Akia doesn't actually get an answer, rather she only sees the girl go ramming straight into the ceiling, but not actually making impact with the roof.} "...no. I don't feel anything...Why were you even asking me? What were you even doing to her?" {What does come out of the ceiling is a black shadowy crevice that absorbs the black bubbly liquid, the liquid lingering a bit before making the hole change it's color from midnight blue to midnight purple. Afterwards, a boy pokes his head out, glaring at Akia, the girl Akia was previously fighting seeming to be nowhere to be found.}

The young woman stares over at Asena very curiously, she wasn't expecting anything like that to happen... "Well, I was sparing with her. Till you... Took her place? What exactly happened with that, and for that matter what are you two? I've never heard of an Epithet that's as varied as your abilities. So probably not Inscribed right?" She's not about to just attack some more when she isn't really sure if the boy even wants to keep that up. If he doesn't, maybe she'll hang around and drink some more? "Anyway, I'm not sure if I should keep going with that match or not. Up to you honestly, I love a good fight and all but I'm not gonna push somebody into something."
"Right... I think you two.. Three? Have gone far enough..." Sen steps out from the area near the door, staying a safe distance away from the arena as she makes her presence known. She's still... Confused to say the least. "I.. Suppose I should start by asking what exactly I just witnessed." it reminds me of something I'd see in Purgatory... But this is clearly reality. The girl would stand there for a moment before addressing Akia specifically "Also you... Know its illegal to give high-schoolers alcohol right? You should.. Probably be more careful."

Akia just shrugs and laughs as Sen steps out, that's not really any issue she's ever worried herself with. "Hahaha, it sure is. But that would only be an issue if someone tried to make it one, and I don't think anyone would do something like that do you Sen~?" The cheery tone she speaks in hides something else behind it, she very clearly doesn't care about the law all that much as long as it doesn't bother her. "Anyyyyyyway let's not focus on boring stuff like that, I can't just not fight everyone under the age of 20 or something. I mean I guess I could, but that's no fun. And unless you'd rather I resort to bottle stabbing and Molotovs that's sorta my least lethal choice." Akia would just shrug a little bit at that point, absently starting to ponder forming another drink. "As for what you saw, you just saw an Inscribed throwing down with her Epithet. Have you really heard of us before?"
{And out comes a bystander. When she started speaking as if she were really concerned, the boy could only give a sigh and look at the two with an annoyed glare. He starts speaking in a monotone voice, spitting the image of sarcasm despite probably not meaning to.} "This is fun and all, but you've made two mistakes. Number 1." {The boy in his dark sinkhole moved to the side, letting a dark slimy construct of a dead swordfish launch straight ahead towards Akia. It was only one breed of fish, but it had been thrown out at an incredibly high speed, it's sharp head also being in the front which would try to at least graze by Akia. Either way, it would land right by Sen's feet, and it would dissolve into a gooey mess of shadows afterwards.} "You let your guard down. Sure whoever this is should be given attention but it really should not distract you from any fighting. Number 2." {Afterwards, he swam off to the right side, opposite from where he stood before. This time, a hammerhead shark was summoned, coming straight out of the dark sinkhole and shooting straight towards Akia. Bearing it's fangs, it aimed to bite her, but unlike the swordfish, it wasn't moving that fast.} "Don't think I was finished. Only she was."

Akia chuckles slightly and rushes back into combat, she was clearly expecting... No hoping, that the kid would continue to attack. Indeed, the sword fish would be met with a burning wave of wine that rushes from a hand swinging down. "Hah. You actually thought I wasn't paying attention to you too? Wild kid, I'm used to this kinda fighting I know how it goes!" She'd grin a little bit as he declares issue two and sends the shark towards her. That one isn't met by another attack, but rather by the girl taking a hearty swig of... Something and quickly dodging out of the way with a loose and fluid movement. "Now if you really want to keep going, then try this one. Alcohol Poisoning!" Whatever clear reeking liquid is blasting at Asena like a hose would have... Very strong effects if it hit true, as anything that's made of near pure booze tends to. Despite the name however, it doesn't actually run a risk of causing death, but nor does it take more than seconds to set in with confusion and sickness upon the target.
"I...." Sen was in fact planning to lecture them for it again. But the girl has to step back from the... Fish? Either way, it just made it more clear that she couldn't do anything here. A frustrating powerlessness the girl hadn't had to feel in a while. Still, there was no danger.. "No. None of this should be possible in the real world. Something's wrong.." but what exactly that is Sen has no way of knowing. She feels a need to ensure things don't go too far, yet at the same time there's little they can do about the situation, so for now they simply talk to themselves. Mind working at a thousand miles per hour
“...ok, and? I hate social interaction...” {He snarks on even more, now blankly staring at the hose of poisonous booze coming straight for him. In order to cover up his hole, he summons a large, dead empty husk of a fish carcass to practically act as some sort of shield. After being filled with booze, it falls onto the floor as the sinkhole Asena previously created disappears.} “What a drag. I’m shocked people still find this tedious stuff a shock to their system.” {Asena’s shadow trails from on the roof, leading itself away the ceiling and heading towards the floor, where it drops itself right by Akia. A shadow construct of a smiling figure drags itself up from off the floor, raising it’s arm slowly to make a strong swiping motion towards Akia’s legs.} “Goal.” However, the shadow raising it’s one arm wasn’t just to attack. As it did so, Asena appeared in front of the dead fish husk, putting his hands in his pockets and he kicks it towards Akia, taking one hand out of his pocket just to cover his mouth. Once the sea carcass is punted towards Akia, it would dissolve into a mere unstable construct of poisonous liquid energy and slimy shadow goop.}

Akia shrugs a bit while replying to Send mid battle. "Jeez, I know 1 in 50 is only roughly 140 million people but Inscribed ain't that rare, saying my powers aren't possible hurts Sen! Nectar of The Gods!" The woman downs a gleaming gold bottle of some strange liquid, she isn't going to tell Asena but it's really draining enough she can only use it every so often.. once a battle,. It does however have the benefit of greatly increasing her strength and speed for a while. A fact Akia gleefully uses to evade the physical blow flying at her. As for the poison gas in the air, the Inscribed can hold her breath too for a while, and would rush with now blatantly and obviously inhuman speed to try and slam powerful kick straight towards Asena in a winding unpredictable motion. Some of the gas gets past even so though, despite her best efforts.
{Asena’s blank expression changes to that of passive-aggressive contempt. He shakes his head at Sen seeming to have some kind of Jimmy Neutron brain ecstasy and focuses on Akia as she has now powered herself to a great amount.} ”Ugh, one of those types...” {Instead of trying to one-up Akia’s empowered movements, his eyes just follow her swift movements, not letting himself do any actual work with figuring out where she’ll end up kicking him. Where she did though, she would find a black hole from beside him spitting out an electric eel that almost intercepts the kick completely. Though since it’s just an eel, of course, it really doesn’t. Instead, it dissolves into more shadowy slime as it creates a dark electrical burst of energy. Energy which, almost seemed like a discharge of dark spores that chained electric currents together.} {Since Asena didn’t feel it appropriate to move at all, it would only make sense that he would get hit because of this. But thanks to the distraction his eel would make, his shadow trails from off Asena and straight towards Akia’s proximity. In hopes that she is distracted, the shadow creeps up from behind and forms it’s body before responding with a strong uppercut from behind.}
"Tedious? Is this really just a game to you?" Sen lets out a sigh as she takes a few more steps further from the arena. Though she understands this is probably meant as practice, they seemed to be getting close to something actually dangerous. But with no ability to influence it herself, Sen decides to keep her comments to a minimum. No need to risk upsetting them. "140 million is way too high. If there were that many it'd be public knowledge. And I can guarantee none of my classmates know anything about you 'inscribed.'" What they were called meant nothing to Sen, but with no other words to go by she was willing to use Akia's term

The woman just sighs as Asena sends that dark energy flying at her, this is getting a little too dicey for the standards of the Inscribed and she's slightly pondering trying to end it faster. While her enhancements are still working... The bursts of energy would be met with a wave of beer, cheap shitty watered down beer that would conduct even more of the eletrcial power straight towards her enemy to be exact, and away from Akia. As for the shadow that may be aiming to strike, it would be met with an inhumanly strong and quick swing of a heavy thick glass whiskey bottle, thick enough to withstand being used as a blunt weapon and clashing against the shadow in a contest of strength as Akia calls out to Sen without even slightly losing focus upon the fight at hand. "We are common knowledge where I'm from though, beleive it or not I ain't crazy. I just don't think you and I are from the same... World so to speak? These things happen sometimes, dimensions get crossed, people end up in weird places. You get used to it where I'm from!"
{From below the boy, the same dark hole that spit out the eel then proceeded to throw a black net right in front of him, one that would insulate the electrical currents it had summoned, effectively making all the electricity go into it instead of Asena. After it fell to the ground with a few jolts popping up here and there, Asena gives out a hearty sigh.} {As Akia intercepts the shadow with her whiskey bottle, she finds that the strike she makes proves to be more effective. Way more effective. So much so that her force splits the shadow in half, turning it from a bulky silhouette into two lanky figures holding what seem to be butcher knives. Their movements are mirrored, and they even go so far as to slash at the same target. Akia.} "I'm baack!~ Asena says he wasn't getting lucky..." {A girly voice shrills out, the same one that was previously drunk and about to keel over is now slightly recovered. Remembering she was still engaged in friendly combat, she takes cosmic dust out of her bag, whisking it into the air and seeing the results for herself. The dust makes stars, 17 to be exact, that glow brightly and shoot out towards Akia. All of which follow her and don't stop until they hit her. Once they make impact, they'd explode and make bright bursts of light similar to an excessive amount of fireworks.}
"I don't think I could ever get used to something like that." Sen holds one hand close to her chest before letting out a sigh. Right now Akia sounds like a complete lunatic, but there's not exactly a way to disprove her. At least not that she's aware of..... Unless.... "Don't get too rough. I shouldn't have to tell anyone that murder is also illegal." With that, Sen just.. Runs. The girl leaves for home. The only place where she can safely attempt to confirm something. Even if just thinking about the source makes her sick

Akia just absently nods to Sen as she leaves. As for the oncoming blows rushing at her those would be... Well, one of the knife holders is sent flying off course back into the wall by a quick burst of some light green liquid. The other is only partly 'blocked', mainly because Akia forces it to slam into non-critical parts of her arm rather than being struck in a vein or anything. The Inscribed is still lightly bleeding though. She also quickly summons forth more of that green drink, which would engulf the woman in a hollow wave that appears all around her and engulfs the enemy with rapid speed. It also hopefully blocks the bursts of light flying at her, but if not Akia would be forced to try and block as many as she can with the whiskey bottle in hand. Finally, regardless of the shield's success against Asena's light the enemy would find her shadowy minion being propelled straight at her along with a fast powerful burst of the liquid. Liquid that's very strong booze which would also cause some hallucinations if it struck true. Absinthe is known for that after all. "Haha, was he not? My luck has been alright so far, though it is a bit of a switch for me doing something like this. Most people I fight are trying to do serious damage!" She chirps out in a cheery voice while smiling over at the girl earnestly.
{The stars intercept the liquid shield, greatly reducing the damage that the stars would have dealt. However, the sheer number of them still had some go through, 7 to be exact. Even if Akia blocks them, they still make small bursts of blinding light that would do well to cause more distractions.} “Oh, don’t worry about it. He’s always like that. And you’ll get used to it too. Most people seem to like fighting like that!” {As she sees Asena’s booze coated shadow coming towards her, she makes a portal from her cosmic dust. She immediately jumps in, making the same portal appear from the roof once more. Afterwards, she started to float, making the cosmic dust surround her as if they were circulating the girl.} {One by one they started making constellations, forming a shining bow with a bright and shocking arrow. She immediately grips the bow and gets to work, during the arrow upwards, into the portal. Then, she ditched the bow, making it dissolve into more cosmic dust as she takes out her baton, slashing into the air once more and making another electric blade beam shoot towards Akia.} ”Hope you won’t mind it though, teehee!~”
