[ READY? ]
@Lobos_Del_Rayo: LOL OK Guess Manami has to do the strife and duck tactic for a while :P
@Lobos_Del_Rayo: Ahh, Well Manami's battle suit is pretty low on power to gain some strength. She will just have to be crafty:)
[ HINT ]
[ ALRIGHT, I GOT IT ]
Taylor ducked, summoning a large screw from the ground to shatter the large lump of stone before erasing the distance between his current location and where Tavi was fighting, before pulling a floppy disc from his pocket.

[ WILL YOU PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGY? ]
[ IF NOT, I'M WILLING TO COOK WAFFLES AND BABYSIT ON THE WEEKEND. ]
[ PICK ONE, AND YOU'RE EITHER A GREAT SPY OR A HORRIBLE MOTHER ]
Taylor reached out, hoping to slip the floppy disc down Tavi's trousers before jumping back to a safe distance.
[ CALL ME ]
Taylor watched the broadcast, still holding his Xbox Controller.
[ BORING ]
He raised the remote, flicking the TV settings back onto his game console, only to find the dreaded -GAME OVER - screen, taunting him as usual.
[ ONCE AGAIN ]
[ I COULDN'T WIN ]
@Surkit: @Nerx: @Feral_Nova: @Juni_Hinamura: @Jlynnana:
Taylor coughed up blood as he rolled along the ground after taking Surskit's attack, right in the ribs.
"THE HELL WAS THAT FOR?!" Taylor shouted, putting on a very pained face while suppressing, quite successfully, the urge to laugh.
The paleness in his face was very convincing.
"GUYS, THE STONE'S CONTROLLING HIM!" Taylor shouted. "HE JUST LASHED OUT AT ME! WE GOTTA-"
Taylor then looked up at the mechs coming from above.
"Sir." Taylor said with a crisp salute. "I can get the stone out of Surkit's bloodstream before its too late, but I'll need your help in holding him down once we take out the mechs." Taylor suggested in a professional voice, his face a picture of absolute terror controlled by military training and determination.
@sarah morgan: @DigiDestined:
It had been quite some time since the initial exam, and now it was the day before a certain exhibition match between two more experienced students.
Specifically, Tika Vs Sarah.
After the events of that day, Tika's popularity had taken quite a nose-dive. Certain images went viral, and wolf-whistles still followed her wherever she went on campus, despite the efforts from teachers to maintain her dignity and privacy.
And tomorrow would be her chance to reclaim the former glory. By crushing her rival in a battle.
A young man approached her during lunch period. She ignored him best she could, but when he started stealing her chips, he was asking for a slap.
The only reason he didn't get one was because of the comment he made.
[ SO, I HEAR YOU NEED A FIRST YEAR PARTNER FOR TOMORROW'S MATCH ]
The fact that he had approached her, that he knew who she was and what was happening tomorrow, told a lot about the boy in and of itself.
[ MY NAME'S JOEY ]
[ I'M THE MOST DANGEROUS FIRST YEAR IN THE SCHOOL ]
As if to prove his point, he placed a VS recorder onto the table, then walked away.
Curiosity piqued, Tika pressed the play button, and watched in awe as this Joey took down a dragonite with only a ratatta.
The battle was over within a minute. This kid, even with the weakest pokemon, could train them in such a way as to completely cripple the greatest powerhouses.
Tika wanted him on her team.
"HEY!" She shouted, getting to her feet. "JOEY!"
Standing in the hallway, a good distance from the dining hall, Taylor grinned to himself at a job well done.
The girl would be begging for him to help her.
He had broken her and now he was rebuilding her in a more usable shape.
And thus his influence spread.
@Surkit: @Nerx: @Feral_Nova: @Juni_Hinamura: @Jlynnana:
Taylor was glad that his ploy was working well, but was incredibly concerned.
Lynn was still feeling pain from a wound that never happened and chi that was never spent.
That stone was resisting his All Fiction.
That was impossible.
You cannot feel lingering pain from events that never happened.
But with that stone's abilities...
Taylor would not allow that stone to continue existing.
That kind of artefact would require him to lay his hands on it, but he would completely reduce it to the stuff of legend- a fable, and nothing more. And everyone here would have been chasing a dream, a rumour spread by some military activists.
But now, Taylor had another problem.
With the terra destroyer down, they had hostiles approaching at an incredible rate. Taylor could take them out, but Eli Hess couldn't.
"Guys, I'll stay behind and heal your wounds." He announced, getting into formation. "Gimme some time, I'll track down the stone's location."
Then a thought struck him. A thought that made him smile on the inside.
As he passed by Lynn, he said something so quietly, she'd think that she only imagined it. So quietly, she'd hear it in her own voice.
[ JUST LIKE WHAT CHI SHOGUN DID TO YOUR HOME ]
Keeping a straight face as he got into position, he drew his gun and got ready for the attack, stood behind Surkit.
Ready to put a bullet in his neck when he got the chance to steal that rock.
@Lobos_Del_Rayo: @Sonata: @Jlynnana: @Masterofdeath:
Taylor observed Moyasu carefully, watching for the weaknesses.
Old scars. Mental trauma. Humanity returning. Gaps in sword stances. Sword stances out of practice.
He prepared a debilitating Book Maker screw and launched it, right through all of the gaps in Moyasu's defences. It wouldn't cause any physical damage, but it would weaken him to the level of a small child with no sword experience or resistance to pain or torture. Once that pierced, there would be no blood, but he would be defenceless to Hagane's and everyone else's attacks.
