Hagane smiled, wandering off to examine the factory machines.

"Yeah, I got nothing." SamJaz said, looking around and searching for clues. "Hitomi, do you know what we're doing here?"

"Standing around, looking gormless as we try and find something to kill?" The seamstress suggested.

"Sorry to keep you waiting." a short bald man with a blond beard turned walked up to the team from behind a machine. "Name's Jarrod." the man lifted a hammer bigger than he himself was and started examining it.

"So, are you ready?" he asked the team without looking at them.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

"Aye Aye Cap'n!" SamJaz shouted, saluting smartly before turning to face the team. "I can't HEEEAAAR YOOOOOOUUUU!!!!"

@ChronoWolf: @SamJaz:

"I like yer spirit boy. So which one of you is first?" he finally turned to the team and leaned onto the huge hammer.

"First for what?" Phantom asked as it seemed like no one else would do.

"Well for a fight of course." the man answered like it was the most obvious answer out there.

"Why? And what is this supposed to be anyway?" for Phantom the man's answer wasn't all that helpful.

"Ain't it obvious kid? My factory." Jarrod yelled at Phantom as if he was insulted by the question. "In a single day i make enough weapons for entire armies, that's how i live."

"But you see, even though i'm a blacksmith before i'm a fighter, even i need to stay in shape. And it's so rare that someone comes there that i take any chance i get. Come now, the lot of you will help me test some new weapons. Once all of you have fought me i'll let you pass."

"I'll go first then." SamJaz said, swinging his keyblade like an umbrella as he approached the blacksmith. "No biting, no gouging, no crotch grabs?" He asked, getting into a stance.

"Sure kid." the man replied to Sam's input of rules.

"You go first kid."

SamJaz smirked, swinging his Keyblade before launching into a horizontal spinning slash. His hand hovered over the keyblade as he swung- even if the attack was blocked, the shaft would spin around the weapon and smack the blacksmith regardless.

@SamJaz:

Instead of using his left hand with the hammer to block, the blacksmith put his right arm out. Just as it was about to make contact with Sam's weapon, the molten metal from one of the giant cauldron burst out and hugged Jarrod's hand. Instead of colliding with liquid steel Sam's Keyblade encountered fully formed, dense metal claw which quickly warped itself around the oposing weapon stopping it's movement completely. Even after the counter the claw didn't let go and held onto the Keyblade firmly so that it couldn't be pulled out.

"Let's see how ya like this boy." Jarrod then swung his hammer, aiming at Sam's hand which was holding the weapon, hoping to shatter the bones in his fist and to force him to release the blade and thus disarm him.

@ChronoWolf: @SamJaz:

Watching the hammer come down, SamJaz squeezed his eyes tight, changing persona. He heard the sound of breaking glass, then the sound of metal hitting metal as the hammer bounced off SamJaz's hand.

Girimehkala- the one eyed elephant. Specialising in disease, trickery and brute force, This Persona provided a barrier around SamJaz that would repel all physical attacks that would harm him, sending the damage back to the wielder but at a cost. Not only did this Persona not have the temperature resistance that Black Frost had, but this persona gave SamJaz a crippling weakness to the forces of Light and Darkness. But more worrying for SamJaz was how this persona affected him Psychologically-

Just as Black Frost made SamJaz more brutal and ruthless, Girimehkala was insidious. A tempter, and a foul creature of Sri Lankan lore that served Mara. Just making eye contact with SamJaz right now was enough to make one feel ill.

This was a side of SamJaz that was impervious to sticks and stones. Not only would he break your bones, but his words would hurt you even more. This was not a side of himself SamJaz liked, was comfortable with, and did not want to show the others. He would beat this old man senseless, strip him down, shove those hot irons up his-

SamJaz would end this fight quickly and change Persona.

Redirecting the repelled force, SamJaz made the metal around the Keyblade shatter, and then jumped into the air to knee Jarrod in the face, and then he would grab him by the back of the head and repeat the attack until the blacksmith fell down. He had to act quick to get this over with.

@SamJaz:

Rather than ending up being defenseless with his weapon gone and entering a state of panic, the blacksmith only smirked. The claw previously shattered simply reformed before the shards could even touch the ground. An new claw was formed out of thin air, this time gripping Sam himself instead of executing any attack. He restored his previous aim, that was restraining movement.

After he reassured his grip, he started transforming the weapon. Well it wasn't much of a transformation of the weapon into something else, but simply a modification of it's current state. It started heating up to the melting point. The same technique that allowed the weapon to form in the first place was now used offensively just by reversing the process.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

Caught in his grip, knee pressed to his chest, SamJaz glared at the blacksmith as the heat began to scorch his skin and clothes.

Pestilence began to brew up within him. His immune system began to lower, dormant, almost non-existent germs in his lungs, blood and belly began to excite and go berserk. A few more seconds of this and the cancer cells would begin to thrive.

SamJaz was dragging this powerful old man into the dirt, destroying his health with his death glare.

@SamJaz:

Meeting the gaze Jarrod started laughing loudly. "You'll wait a long time boy. I'm 982 and i haven't seen a doctor in my entire life." he said the sentences through the laughter.

After that he released the claw making it disappear and he sat down.

"Go on. I still have a couple of weapons left and i planned fighting you all, but you were enough boy, i just like your mindset."

After that Jarrod turned back to his work, ignoring FCL.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

SamJaz snarled, intensifying his gaze.

Bile bubbled. Skin began to blotch. Acids in the stomach tripled in mass, then Hitomi punched SamJaz in the kidney, breaking his eye contact with Jarrod.

He switched Persona over to Undine, then looked at her. "Let it go." She said, grabbing his hand and leading him towards the stairs.

Remembering who he was, SamJaz sent a healing wave to remove any illness in Jarrod as he followed Hitomi and the rest of the team down the stairs. "Later old man." SamJaz said apologetically.

FLOOR -47

It was cold. And white. The sun shone brightly in the ceiling, but offered no warmth amongst the gale.

A winter breeze almost blew the entire team off the staircase as they descended, finding a forest covered in eight feet of snow, with more coming down by the minute.

"Right, there's a house over there." SamJaz said, pointing to a light in the distance. "Let's head there."

@SamJaz: @ChronoWolf:

The scene seemed very familiar to Phantom, though he didn't say anything.

He walked up to the house and knocked onto the door.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

The door opened, and the party was greeted by a little man dressed in green, perhaps the height of Phantom's knees.

"Hellloooooo children!" The little man said, ushering FCL into the warm wooden house. "Welcome, welcome! Mister Kringle will be with you shortly, could I interest you in a cup of hot chocolate? Please, have a seat good sirs and madams."

SamJaz and Hitomi were both afraid. Very afraid. Hagane, on the other hand, was liking where her train of thought seemed to be leading her.

@Fehafare: @SamJaz: Arthurs resistance to cold was perfect for this floor. Actually it was the wormth of the house that bugged him. Well, the wormth and a midget ofering hot chocolate. He hasn't forgotten the fudge incident.

But somehow this place was rather familiar, not as somewhere he has already been, more like he heard stories of this place. Then it hit him. A cabin in a cold place, elves, well, one at least... It's Santas Workshop! He decided to stay quiet, 'couse really, who wouldn't call a grwon man, or a grown man with the body of a fifteen year-old, crazy if he said he was in the workshop of an imaginary being.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

"HO HO HO!!" A large man dressed in red laughed as he stepped into the room. "HELLOOOOO CHILDREN!!"

His face was framed in a bushy white beard, with short trimmed white hair. He wore glasses, but his blue eyes were crystal clear as if they penetrated the very soul. "IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU, SAMSON CREED, HAGANE KURUGI, ARTHUR CROMWELL, MATTHEW ANDERSON, HITOMI NARUKAMI, AAAAAnnnnddd you." He finished, his booming, gleeful voice turning into the most disinterested and uncaring tone as he looked at Phantom like the master thief was something unpleasant the old man found under his shoe.

The large old man's frown vanished as he stepped forward, face beaming as he spoke in a booming voice. "WELL! IT'S GOOD TO HAVE some OF YOU HERE! HO HO! PLEASE, TAKE A SEAT!" He gestured, taking a large armchair for himself. 'DO EXCUSE THE MESS, HO HO, OUR FORTY-YEAR LEASE IS UP AND WE'LL BE VACATING THE PREMISES SHORTLY HO HO!" He explained. "YES, YES, I KNOW WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE AT THE NORTH POLE, BUT OLD PEARY AND HIS GANG RUINED THAT FOR EVERYBODY, DIDN'T THEY, HO HO?"

The large old man leaned over to Hagane and, in a conspiring whisper, added "Don't worry, I made sure they got coal for a very long time, ho ho ho." He then winked at the redhead and sat up straight.

"SO!" He shouted, slapping his legs. "I AM NIKOLAS KRINGLE, AND YOU ALL HAVE A QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELVES!"

"Have you been naughty?" Nikolas asked as he leaned forward. "Or nice?"

Sitting up straight and laughing loudly, he stretched out a hand and gestured for Matt to come closer. "COME, SIT ON MY LAP, YOU MATTHEW!" he loudly invited. "WE ALL KNOW WHICH LIST YOU'RE ON! TELL ME WHAT YOU'D LIKE FOR CHRISTMAS!"

It occurred to SamJaz that, being February, it was somewhat too soon in the year to be thinking about that. It also occurred to him that, with Santa right there, who cared?

@Fehafare: @SamJaz:

Matt looked around, seeking confirmation from the group. He didn't feel like sitting in a grown mans lap and felt rather uncomfortable. "I think I can tell you what I want from here, thanks." He though what he really, really wants. Maybe a car? Or a brand new guitar!

Arthur, feeling almost as uncomfortable as Matt, decided to do a quick scan of the room. He cast a sight spell on his eyes whith wich he would be able tell if there's anything wrong with this place. Other then Santa Claus being there, that is. He also cast a Detect Magic spell to see if there are any magic traps, illusions and similar things around.

@Fehafare: @ChronoWolf:

"HO HO!" Nikolas shouted, "NO NEED TO BE SO ON EDGE, BUT THAT'S PERFECTLY FINE!" Turning to Arthur, he added. "AND THERE'S NO NEED TO DETECT, ARTHUR! ALL YOU'LL FIND ARE A LOT OF ELVES PUTTING A LOT OF THINGS INTO A LOT OF BOXES HO-HO!"

Turning back to Matt, he reached behind his ear and pulled out a penny. "Well, have a think, and I'll come back to you later." He whispered, then glanced down at Matt's socks then back up, winking as a strange lump appeared between the cloth and Matt's ankle. A small gift that would help Matt and only Matt in the coming battles.

"HITOMI!" Nikolas shouted, turning to the seamstress. "YOU'VE BEEN A VERY GOOD GIRL LATELY! I HAVE JUST THE PRESENT FOR YOU!"

He slipped a paper cracker into her hand, which she pocketed as he looked at Hagane, SamJaz, Phantom and Arthur in turn, his joyful countenance turning dark.

"Now..." He said, laughter gone. "We need to have a little talk about your behaviour lately."

Phantom tried to ignore the man.

He already knew what was coming and frankly, he didn't feel like being scolded by a fictional character.
