Boss Battle: Old face, new coat of paint
Click to go to bottom
A lone figure steps into an old arena with a casual stride. They walk to the center of the arena, raise one arm up to the sky, and snaps their fingers. In an instant a great surge of power ripples throughout the location, reaching far and wide. At the same time, the lights come back on within the arena, revealing the figure to be...Star...who didn't see that one coming? Though she does seem a little...different... "There, that should get me some attention. Now let's see how fast everyone responds."
"I heard there was a cat s...." A heroic figure bursts into the arena, her long white cape billowing in the wind behind her, sharpened white swords by her side. The girl takes in her surroundings before asking "Um hey. I was told there's a cat stuck in a tree here. But I'm not seeing any trees."

Star looks at Sayaka with a blank expression. "You burst into an arena thinking there'd be trees? Not even concerned about the crazy amount of power that just came out of here? I'm...only slightly surprised."
Gin

She's right, you know. No trees here. However, even though it's the middle of the day... *Gin walks into the middle of the arena, a lazy smirk on his face. He spins one of his swords in his hand as he walks before stopping, resting his blade on one shoulder.* There is still a Star out. Heh heh heh.
"Oh concerned about what?" Sayaka looks around once more, checking behind her cloak as if anyone could possibly be hiding there before shrugging "Well whatever. Just because there's no cats here doesn't mean I'm lost." The girl crosses her arms with a huff, as if that somehow answered anyone's questions. "Anyways, if there's nothing here I'll just.. Go."
“Oh wow, here are some unknown people at an arena that I have no idea why I arrived to.” {The girl says sarcastically, not having a care in the world as her high heels clicked on the floor. She flips her long blue hair before taking out her phone.} “I sure do hope we get some cool loot out of this. Maybe a sword or something. For me.”

She faceplams from Sayaka not noticing her sudden energy output before turning to Gin "Normally I'd blow that comment off, but you aren't wrong. Not anymore, anyway. I've undergone a revision, ya see. Ain't a goddess anymore, but I've still got enough power to put a bunch of people into the dirt. Guess all that note taking is paying off now." She makes a small gesture, and a bunch miniature stars surround her, each having their own color and heat. "Fire, time, and life. These are the three major domains that I now belong to. I also somehow have a minor domain of space, so that's something. Of course, I do have a main domain, but...well, you'll just have to figure that out, now won't you?"
A teenager casually dressed in a green hoodie and shorts strides into the arena holding a half-eaten burger. She looks around, visibly confused. "Huh? I was told a Burger Kyubey just opened here, but i'm not seeing any employees!" She bites off half of the remaining portion of the burger. "Now i'm gonna starve!"

"...I'm starting to wonder if the magical girl population has gone mental. Which is odd, because last time I was around they weren't mental. Huh. Studies for a later day."

... *Gin looks at Kyoko and then back at Star.* How many rumours did you start to gather people here exactly, Star?
"oh, its one of those things?" Sayaka asks with a somewhat exhausted tone. She wasn't really paying attention for... Any, of the explanation. But she figures it doesn't really matter. "Well I'll just do the same thing as always I guess. No need to hold back right? I mean... I'll probably keep with the same-old anyways." Sayaka notices a... Familiar face. Among the newcomers, but blinks, as if unsure of her own sight, before turning back to Star "We're as good as ever. Anyways, are we doing anything or what?"

"Don't look at me, all I did was walk in and turn on the lights with a stupid amount of power. But yeah, you try to kick my ass, and if you win, I'll give ya some cool stuff. Go all out, I'm still an immortal dumbass. Don't think it'll be easy though, I've got some new tricks up my sleeves. Now, come and have a go if you think you're badass enough." Star just stands there...menacingly...
Kyoko grunts at Star's statement, gritting her teeth angerily and raising her voice. "Listen, ma'am, my family dead, Sayaka keeps rejecting my advances..." She pauses for a moment to finish off the rest of her burger. "...oh, and now I have no burger! So what if i'm mental?" The redhead then transforms into her red dress, holding her spearlike weapon upright before noticing the blue-haired girl. "Oh hey, Sayaka-chan, didn't see you there."
Sayaka lets out a sigh, looking back at Star with one eyebrow raised and asking "So are we... Taking turns? Who's supposed to go first anyways." Unfortunately that... Person. Seemed to want to talk to her. Sayaka glares at Kyoko, her left hand curling into a fist before the girl breathes out a sigh. Now, its not worth getting into. Especially not right now "I don't have anything to say to you. And don't call me Sayaka-chan."
Isla was stuck in a tree waiting for someone to save her when she felt the surge happen. Isla's red cat ears flicked and her tail spiked up. She shook off her goosebumps and jumped out of the tree, landing on all fours. I know what this is! I didn't anyone was brave enough! Isla ran towards the area and roared. WHO DARES CALL ME!

Creeper alert... *Gin mumbles before coughing.* Why am I not suprised you wanna fight? Heh. Well, it's a bit early, but we didn't face off last summer so... *Gin taps his sword on his shoulder.* Sure. Why not? I'm bored.

"Oh hey, another person who noticed the power surge. Take turns, come at me at once, I don't particularly care too much. just want to show my stuff. It's been like what, a year? Just try to kill me as hard as you can, because I sure as hell won't be making it easy!"
Kill you? Um, I really don't want to get rid of the sun that bad... Isla scratched the back of her head nervously. Does anyone mind if I don't kill her and just... hurt her really bad?
"Alright then... I'll go first. This shouldn't take long" Sayaka exclaims with a grin before two of her swords drop out from beneath the girl's cape. Sayaka catches the weapons as they fall, before dashing after Star with a burst of air in her wake. Sayaka starts simple, just making a single passing swipe at Star before continuing on to the other side of the arena, turning around in preparation
Kyoko shrugs, frowning. "So, I said the no-no word one time! It was just a heated gamer moment! You're not really gonna hold that against me, are you?" She then points her spear towards Star. "At least let me back you up for this fight. After all, there may be a sequence of events that forces us to work together sometime in the future. We should at least learn about the importance of teamwork while we're still fighting monsters of the week."
Ok! Isla sat down and curled into a ball. I'll go last

*Gin made a motion as if he was throwing his sword to his other hand. However, his sword clones itself instead.* Well, no time like the present. *Gin stabs the swords into the ground, sending a line of icicles at Star.*

"Not a chance, are.. No let me guess. This is that stupid alternate reality thing working against me again, isn't it?" Sayaka lets out a huff. She was somewhat used to it with Madoka and Homura. But This Kyoko almost seemed to be the same as the old one. Except for the part where they didn't hate Sayaka. Either way Sayaka shouts out to Kyoko "Then I'll keep this short. You're a selfish prick who'd gladly let people die if it makes your life easier, and in some ways even worse than Witches."

Star ducks and dodges to the side, away from Sayaka's blades and Gin's icicles before holding her arm up. "Eh, a knockout is acceptable too. But, just so you know what you're up against...Temp Snap." She snaps her fingers and suddenly the entire arena freezes over within seconds, before suddenly being thawed out, causing insane damage to the surroundings...and quite a lot of pain to everyone else. "Temp Snap, A move I came up with that steals all the heat from an area before putting it back a few seconds. In other words, it's an ice move using fire and utility magic. Fire magic is all about gathering heat, with ice the removal of heat. Now, enough talk. Have at me." She grins, waiting for everyone to make their moves.
{As the room’s temperature starts to become insanely bipolar, the girl does nothing but tug at the sleeves of her oversized jacket, looking deadpan at Star as if she had done something wrong.} “Yeah I sure needed that whole scientific seminar for your attack. Thanks for that.” {Sana looks up from her phone and her eyes stay half closed in annoyance. She turns her head around to see these other people that appeared before her and sighs.} “Oh wow, more people. Welp, looks like it’s time to start moving.” {The girl snaps her fingers once, making sure everyone in the room hears the deafening vibration of the sound that came from a simple action such as that.}

*Gin jumps and spins through the air. His ice armour cracks from the heat but reforms from the cold. In mid air, he splits his swords into 10, holding two with eight spinning around him. He lands in the arena's stands.* Wow. You aren't holding anything back huh? In that case. Light. Wind. * Gin's 10 swords float in a circle pattern infront of him. Light gathers at the tips, 4 glowing light blue and 6 glowing white, before a large beam of light fires at Star. A vortex surrounds the beam, drawing objects in the arena towards it. Stones that touch the light disintegrate. Though Star would feel the pull from the vortex, somehow Gin's allies would remain unaffected.* Celestial Vortex. A highly concentrated beam of energy with the pulling traction of a cyclone. Minor objects get reduced to dust but it causes some major damage to any larger beings who enter it. Sorry, but you aren't the only one who's been working on some fancy moves.

Kyoko collapses from the pain of the attack, struggling to get up. "Hey, you can't just interupt a midbattle conversation! What are you, one of those 'only a fool talks on the battlefield' types? And, what's with using such a heavy hitting move on the first turn? You could seriously hurt someone!" Kyoko expands her spear into multiple segments linked togther, greatly increasing its length. She then swings the base forward, causing the head of the spear to fly at Star with great speed. "You know, coming from a slice of life alternate reality, I feel you guys should lighten up a bit. Especially you, Sayaka- um..."

Star cracks a smile as she jumps up to the vortex, dodging Kyoko's spear. "Gotta admit, this is some powerful stuff. Too bad it just ain't enough. Dawn of the Day." As Star gets nearer to the vortex, she send one of her mini stars into it and expands it, creating a sun that swallows the vortex before vanishing. "My Major domains are pretty great when they combine their strength. Fire, time, and life. These things are all part of the sun. Sure, I'm explaining my own stuff, but I do like to do a bit of teaching when I can. Still, didn't think I'd have to make a sun so soon."

So what your saying is "Don't use light". I can work with that. Smoke. Darkness. Ice. Mirrors. Light. *Gin uses his blades to emit a large, bright light to blind Star. When the light fades, Gin is in front of Star, striking at her head with two of his blades, ice coating them to create scimitar like blades.*

Star, just stands there as the swords come at her before all of a sudden being two steps away from where they strike. "The cool thing about time is that there's more than just stopping, slowing, and speeding things up. Like, say for instance, manipulating the time it would take to get from point a to point b." She jumps up high into the air before coming down in a flash with a flaming dropkick.
Gin
#31

Time is relative. *As the dropkick connects, the Gin standing there shatters into glass shards. Gin then rises from Star's shadow, sword frozen like a rapier in hand, and strikes her from behind.*

"Fair point." Star quickly ducks and makes a gun gesture with her right hand before firing off a fire fire bullets behind her. "Though, you don't think I saw you coming from behind? if you cam from the front it would be more surprising if you came from the front."
Gin
#33

*Gin smirks, recoiling from the bullets. His armour cracks but starts reforming.* Heh. I suppose it is a bit cliche. But your shadow was behind you. Cloak and Dagger. I distract you with a clone before rising from your shadow for a suprise attack. Admittedly, this time around, it's just a ploy to get a bit closer. You like flashy explosion, right? Earth. Fire. Electricity. Explosion. *Rocks fly up from the ground, magnetise with elecricity into a gauntlet. Lava and fire crack from the surface as he swings at Star. When he gets close, the gauntlet explodes. Gin slides backwards, creating a large distance from Star, his ice armour shattered across his right arm.*

Star takes it head on, being launched across the remains of the stadium. After she comes to a stop, she gets up and dusts herself off, the only signs of damage being that her clothes are a little torn up. "Life has some pretty neat applications. You've got nature, and you've got healing. All I did was cast a simple regeneration spell, add that with some fast forwarding, and I look like I'm perfectly fine. Still, ooohhhhh that smarts! If I wasn't used to getting hit with attacks like that, I'd be swearing like a sailor. Still, I think It's time to change things up. Time Reveals All! Flame Chains! Star's right eye is covered in time runes as chains made of flames spew from her hands and fly all over the arena for some area denial, a few aimed at Gin himself.
Gin
#35

* The other eight swords from earlier re-appear around Gin. Four of them stab themselves into the ground, creating walls of diamonds to protect him from the chains.* Ice. Earth. Diamond Prison. As much as a defence as it is an opening. So, your powers are based around Light, Time and Fire. Nasty trio of elements, but I think i can handle it.

"That's life, time, and fire. And I will admit, they are quite difficult to deal with when they're all used at once. Flame Roots!" Some of the chains dig underground before coming up all around him, now shaped into the roots of a tree. They try to wrap him up and detain him from doing anything.
Gin
#37

Light. Life. Whatever works, I suppose. *Feeling the rumbling underneath him, Gin fades into the shadows of his Diamond Prison, allowing it to crumble. Gin reappears on the top of the arena.* Light. Darkness. Wind. Lightning. God Break. *A number of energy orbs are fired from Gin's swords, forming a fluxuating ball of energy that Gin heel kicks down at Star. The ball starts growing and becoming more and more unstable before, upon getting close to Star, it detonates into waves of unstable energy.*

"Activate, TIME REVEALS ALL!" Time slows down around Star before she suddenly disappears, the explosion missing her as she completely vanishes from time. After the energy goes away, she reappears in the crater left over from the attack. "Well, this has been fun. What say we wrap this up with our strongest attack, hmm?"
Gin
#39

Nothing that destroys anything outside this arena please. I don't want to get stuck with any bills for destroying a country. Not again at any rate. *Gin chuckles before hoping down from the wall and back into the arena proper. His laugh seems to make it seem like he's joking.*

"I know how it feels. Done my fair share of power trips. I'll keep this one short and sweet. Fire, time, life. Create a sun that envelop my opponent. And now, my main domain...change! change into my desired form, a hammer that shall smite my foe!" Star creates a large sun above her that quickly changes it's shape into a massive hammer. She grabs hold of it and then swings it downwards at Gin. SOL CRUSHER!!
Gin
#41

Stars fade eventually. And I have just the tool in my belt to show it. Dark. Gravity. Matter. Wind. *Gin throws his two swords into the air, which are followed by the eight floating blades. The create a circle above the arena and begin spinnning. In the centre, a spark emerges, soon growing in size until a black hole emerges, drawing all in the arena into it, ripping anything that enters it apart at a molecular level. Gin simply folds his arms and anchors himself to the ground.* Star Devourer. Usually, it's a stylised name, but I think it fits for once in this situation. It's not really a black hole. Just a void where matter seperates. Still, you asked for my strongest. This'll do, I think.

"Yeah, it fits the bill alright! But the thing about change is that it's on par with creation and destruction. You could consider them a holy trinity. With change, it's effects are nearly limitless. Fire to ice, space to time, copper to silver! It's pretty much alchemy at it's core! I said I'd envelop you, so that's what I'll do! Matter manipulation at it's finest! SUPERNOVA SLAM!!! Star pulls her hammer back before slamming it into the black hole with explosive force. She changes the properties of her hammer to be near indestructible, but even that isn't enough to stop that black hole. It's a matter of a near-unstoppable force meeting a near-immovable object. This, obviously, causes a massive explosion. There isn't anything left of the arena, but Star is laying on her back in the leftover crater with a smile on her face.

*One of Gin's sword spins down from the exploded black hole. He picks it up, shaking off the dust laughing.* Only you could blow up a black hole, Star.

"Hey, when you've seen a star blow up you know shit is going to hurt. Still, thanks for helping shake the rust off my skill. Here, a little something I think you'll like." She gets up and tosses him a sword made of pure black ice. A black ice blade. Pretty bone chilling. Take it, it's yours. I've got my own anyways...well, I probably can't lug it around anymore, what with it being eleven feet tall, but it's still mine."
Gin

*Gin catches the blades, checks it's weight and spins it around.* Nice. Thanks for the gift. Reminds me of what I used back in the old days. *Gin chuckles, resting the blade on his shoulder.* So, you gonna be up to more mischief?

"Eh, not as much as before, but occasionally. I'll mostly just be trying to keep the peace whenever I'm around. So many people causing problems for others. I might not have my weapons anymore, but I've got power so i'll manage."
Gin
#47

Well, you're talented. I'm sure you'll manage. *Gin smirked before walking away and leaving the arena, waving with the back of his hand at Star.* And if you're planning something, give me a call. It always gets interesting when you show up.

"Somehow everything gets more chaotic when I show up. Even when I'm trying to be serious, something happens that makes things go off the rails. If I ever do plan another crazy event, I'm sure you'll find out about it before long. Well, see ya." Star climbs out of the crater and walks off in a random direction.
