    The Best Offence

    It was a herculean task on Ellie's part to neither laugh nor coo over Danica's little foray into profanity. "Swearing can be useful to throw a little gas on the fire but it shouldn't be your whole plan. If you don't think you can do it confidently, without hesitating, it'll work against you. You want to play to your strengths when you're needling someone else's weak spots, yeah?" Settling back down in her seat she interlaced her fingers around her cup and grew serious. "People will give you a lot of reasons for why they hurt other people but the ones you end up having to fight, the ones you ca

    Ryder cocked his head slightly to the left and responded with a warm but uncharacteristically understated smile in deference to Natalia's quieter moment. "I'm glad! It's a good pun." Magenta pressed her forelimbs to either side of her head like a human placing their palms on their cheeks at the sight of something cute and had to be herded out of Natalia's bag and over to Ryder's with the rest of the Robugs. "I wouldn't really trust that jerk in charge with a disposable lighter. Hopefully the penguin guy who got away doesn't cause too much trouble but I think we made the best of a really dumb s

    "Hey, hey! Mary Shelley, look at me." Ellie uncrossed her legs and rose to her feet so that she could try to find an angle where she could meet Danica's eyes. "First of all, some of the most powerful people I know are cute when they fight. You know Fleur de Joie, on the Freedom League? Sweet enough to give you a toothache and she's in charge of a whole planet. But if you really want the bad guys to focus on you, that's easy. Practically the first thing you learn as an Interceptor." She folded her arms and took advantage of the elevated position to look down her nose slightly in her very best c

    Ellie blinked a few times, head slowly tilting to one side. "That definitely isn't what I was picturing from the write-up. I kinda thought it was going be more of a..." She stuck her arms out in front of herself to mime jaws, her fingers interlacing as the 'teeth' as she opened and closed them. "Big spirit tortoise jaws in front of you, not little separate guy walking around on his own. That was unbelievably cute. Less so if you're a chair, probably." She looked around the snack bar area to see if anyone was going to raise a fuss over destruction of school property before turning her attention
  6. The bizarre demonic centaur didn't crane its neck to look down at Kensei so much as the portion of its form above its pectorals rippled, abruptly refocusing in downward leaning position like frames of animation played out of order. Even standing at the ready atop the car it loomed over the young swordsman. Where he should have been able to feel its hot breath snorting from the nostrils at the end of its snout and around huge, curving teeth he instead felt an electric tingle blow across the front of his spectral armour. It seemed to consider him briefly with the gouts of yellow flame that serve
  7. "'If I'm going to follow the rules', serious-- oh you're gone. That was pretty cool." Abruptly left talking to himself Ryder turned and gave the cashier a winning grin. "Could you set those bowls aside for minute? I need to find where my friend ran off to." Half crouched behind the counter she gave an uncertain nod. The strawberry blond teenager dashed down the 'employees only' hallway to the left and out the side door to the narrow alleyway between buildings. When a cursory look back and forth seemed to confirm he was alone he reached down to the printer ink cartridge styled buckle on his bel

    "Don't look at me, I don't know what they see in him," Ellie quipped breezily, giving Danica a sly wink. "But that sounds like a pretty good start. It won't help to pull somebody to safety if they just bleed out inside your shell." She stopped for a moment to consider that sentence and grimaced. "That came out a little grosser than it sounded in my head. Sorry." Leaning back in her chair she crossed one leg over the other and swung her foot back and forth idly. "So learning some more first aid skill would be a pretty good idea. I can help with that. Seems like you've got pretty steady hands, w
  10. That'll work! Give me an initiative check, too.
  11. I’d say the outward curving teeth are enough to remind Utsuwa of popular depictions of oni. The electric guitar/sound wave aesthetic isn’t ringing any bells.

    Inside her bag Nocturne found not only her expected belongings but also Magenta triumphantly holding the 'force multiplier' gauntlet the faux 'Gravi-ton' had been displaying at his booth. She managed to convey an attitude of impish satisfaction with the tilt of her triangular head as she presented it. "You knew that guy was fake right away and y'know, that's a gravity thing, you've got a gravity thing," Ryder explained his reasoning as his base armour disappeared in a burst of wind and flash of light. His own bag descended the wall of the building to which they had their backs, Cya

    "I am rich... in friendship," Chitin quipped, raising an index finger in the air and placing the opposite hand over his heart. "But yeah, anyway! Stay safe, May!" With a quick wave he took off for the nearest exit, hopping over ruined booths and broken tables, flashing a thumbs up to the reporter still holding her fire extinguisher over the unconscious criminal. Ignoring the protestations of a still disoriented security guard getting unsteadily to his feet the armoured hero slipped outside with Nocturne close behind.

    Chitin gave a brief laugh and nodded amicably. "Ha, well that's lucky! Officially." He glanced over at Nocturne's impatient expression and bobbed his head. "Alright, we better get going but since the, uh, monkey guys are wrapped up - and boy I have a lot of questions about those two - and you're probably getting out for good behaviour soon can I convince you to hold off on kidnapping anybody or taking crime jobs at least for a bit? Maybe see if some other job offers turn up?" There was a silent pause, then he pointed to the upper portion of his helmet's large eye pieces. "You can't tell but I'
  15. "Experimentation is about taking risks, Utsuwa!" Ryder told his roommate cheerfully once the specifics of his order were settled. He followed the attention of the other patrons out the front window. Not limited by Utsuwa's carefully crafted lack of investment he shifted to get a clearer look through the front window. "Oh yikes, Mr. It's Fine can't catch a break. Meter maid." The middle-aged enforcement officer didn't look at all impressed by the business man's assertions, continuing to scribble in her notepad. With a high pitched sound of peaking indignation the blond man jabbed a finger into
