Timestamp: Before hard-canon!
Tiffaney had been in her office for the past five hours, going over the data on her research in genetics. She reached over to take a sip of coffee from her surprisingly not-decorated coffee cup. "Hmmm." She mused out loud as she deleted a few lines from a more recent theory on increasing the durability of the human body with minimum invasiveness, and was about to type up some revised notes when she heard a few loud thunks echo from down the hall. She tapped her finger on her desk a few times and looked at the door until it stopped. "I really should check out what's been causing that noise for the last few weeks..." She pondered, listening to the thunking start up anew, before typing up that revision, saving, then closing the document before stretching, her cat ears twitching as she did. "I suppose five hours of sitting is enough to warrant a walk." She figured as she stood up and stretched again, cracking her neck before exiting her lab to investigate the sound. "Sparky, stay." She told the robopup who decided to hop onto Tiffaney's chair to do the staying. "Good boy!"
The thunking became thudding as she got closer to a newly-made portion of Skorpion's lab. When Tiffaney made it to the entrance, as she opened the door the thuds became nearly ear-splitting SLAMS as something metal hit something else. After she put her hands to her ears, Tiff looked around and saw the source of the noise. Under a massive set of machinery, designed in such a manner as to mimic a simply gargantuan set of weights, was Shiori. Clad in a set of gym clothes sans shoes and barely breaking a sweat, the supersoldier had paused in the last set of reps, and was gearing up to go again. From Tiffaney's estimates, the weights were set to approximately that of several tons. Each.
"Hi, Shiori!; Any chance you could pad where you're dropping the weights. I can hear it from my lab." Tiffaney informed, keeping her hands over her ears in case of further noise.
Shiori didn't respond immediately. She gripped the bar above her for a few moments wriggled a bit, and pulled herself out from under the mechanism. When she sat back up, it was then that she noticed that Tiffaney was in the room. Tiff could see a pair of specialized ear muffs over Shiori's snowleopard ears. "OH! HEY TIFF! DIDN'T SEE YOU COME IN!"
Tiffaney smiled and waved before pointing to her ears. "You're wearing ear muffs." She happily informed.
There was a second or two of contemplation, then Shiori realized what Tiff was miming. "OH! RIGHT!" She reached up, undid the muffs, and set them on the bench. "Sorry about that. I had to wear those or constantly have my eardrums heal. What brings you in here?" Shiori stood up, and the last couple weeks have been downright impressive. As fit as she was before, Shiori was flat out toned now. Nearly perfect musculature, with a few soft spots here and there, and nary a drop of sweat on her, save for a few patches on her massive top.
Tiffaney looked over Shiori for a moment, her glasses drooping a bit before she coughed into her hand. "I wanted to know what the sound was about. I can, uh. Hear it from my lab." She informed, pointing behind her, and adjusting her glasses. "You're looking good by the way, really fit... Not to say you weren't fit before, just that you look more... Fit... Yeah." She took a moment to scratch the back of her head.
Shiori grinned, and did a pose for Tiff. "Yeah, I uh. I had a bit of a fire lit under my butt thanks to this new threat. Bruce and jerks like him? Half-assing gave me enough strength. But frankly, I've been half-assing it for too long." She relaxed and made her way over to Tiff. "My strength and ability is based upon my natural stuff. The nanites simply enhance what I could do. Exponentially so, but they just boost. So, if I let myself go soft? They boost what's there. I get myself into shape," she makes a motion to the massive weights behind her, "I am currently at double what I was last week."
Tiffaney couldn't help but pass another glance while she clapped for Shiori. "Dang it. I thought I was done ogling girls once I got outta high school, plus she's half my age so it's really creepy..." She thought to herself. "Impressive. I should have went with a similar design in my work..." The scientist said, trailing of to think how much she'd need to scale that back to limit it to practical use.
Shiori remained blissfully unware of Tiff perving out just a little, and simply answered. "I had something like this back at home base, and Skorpion helped figure out how to put it together. It's only one piece though. Would you like a tour?" Shiori waved around the area, and lo, there were several other corridors leading away. "Lots more to see."
"Sure. I could use a break from my research." Tiffaney said with a smile.
With a giggle, a grin, and a happy bounce, Shiori nabbed Tiff's hand, and dragged her through from room to room. "Here we have the sets of dead lifts" Next room! "Then the barbells, various shapes and sizes." Another room! "Here's the swimming area." Away they go! "And this one's for jumping practice." Shiori gleefully showed off room after room, the bits of equipment that Skorpion had helped make and design. "Aaaaand here is the sparring arena!" At this point, Shiori had gotten Tiff 'round the midriff and was holding her close in sheer giddiness. "With some luck, I MIGHT get someone to fight against."
"Why couldn't this have happened in highschool..? Oh, wait. I was a hyper-aggressive shut-in... Right." Tiffaney thought to herself, looking away from Shiori to sulk for a moment before regaining her usual demeanor. "I used to be quite the brawler..." She coughed. "In highschool." She said, her cheerfulness faltering for a moment at the mention of her awkward highschool days.
"You were? Neat!" Shiori grinned wider, and dragged the poor scientist down to the arena to show it off. "Would love to see you in action." She left Tiff for a moment to hop into the arena, and did a few boxing poses and threw a few punches. "Heck, maybe you could get back into it. Make it so that if someone catches you unawares, you're not really unawares, ya know?"
Tiffaney smiled to her friend as she walked to the edge of the arena. "I dunno. I've come a pretty long way as a spellcaster, but if you want something to spar against I could probably find a good summon."
"Nah nah, it needs to be a hu- wait, summon? What summon? You can do magic?" The snowleopard girl asked, pausing mid-punch. "Are you a magical girl too?"
"I'm a caster." Tiffaney said as she snapped her finger, causing a scroll to burn into existence and float in front of her. "Let's see..." She said as she opened the scroll. "I have the alchemist, the warrior, the beastmaster, a centaur, a minotaur, a valkyrie-"
"I, wait, stop!" Shior waved her hands to distract Tiff. "I uh. Those sound interesting, sure, but I need to face against a human person-person. Cause that's who I'm gonna be up against. Not a magical construct, as humanish as they may seem." She paced a bit, thinking, then her face brightened, and looked over slowly towards Tiff, a cat smile crossing her face.
Tiffaney looked to her sides before looking to Shiori. "What?" She asked as the scroll burned back out of existence.
Shiori jumped, and landed before Tiff, crouching slightly as she did. "Well...like we just talked about. You!" She made a motion. "You said you were a bit of a brawler? You could do so again! Magic can only take ya so far, especially in tense situations." She giggles, and looked Tiff over. "And hey, we could do workouts together? Get in shape even more! Wear matching workout gear! Better muscles, better endurace?" Shiori grinned further, and held out a hand. "Whatcha say? If we get better, and maybe convince others to do the same, maybe we could take down the jerk that stabbed Arella and Lucius."
"It would be nice to get in shape again..." Tiffaney said, cupping her chin as she thought. "... Okay!" She ultimately decided with a smile. "What are the rules?"
"Uh, rules?" Shiori looked confused. "What rules, rules for what?"
"The sparring match. Is there gonna be a no magic policy?" Tiffaney asked, knowing that long cast-time spells that required one to stand still would be unusable regardless.
"Oh, ohhhh! Hm." Shiori paced back and forth. "No. Magic allowed." She turned on her feet, and faced TIff directly. "Main reason for this is to get ready. So..." A sigh before she continued. "So we need to fight like we normally would. Granted, not to the death, of course, but...."
"Well there are a lot of variables to 'normal', but I'll do my best!" Tiffaney said with a smile as she reached into her labcoat to pull out an old looking book. "Alright then." She siad as she opened the book, a face appearing on it's cover to look at Shiori the moment it opened. "Wow. It's been some time since I've seen a lot of these."
"A lot of what? What is that book?" Shiori walked around Tiff to get a look over her shoulder and see what looked like a bunch of shapes mixed in with runes, and something resembling hieroglyphics.
"A bunch of spells from various time periods, races, and countries; The Amalgamite Archive I belive is it's name." Tiffaney tried to recall. "It's unique in that where most spellbooks have a theme this one does not. Light magic, dark magic, elemental magic, forbidden magic. It's all within these pages."
"Ooh. That is kinda cool. Also, never seen a book that looks back." Shiori bent down and around Tiff to get a good look at the face-cover again, which looked back as though she were something to study.
"It's trying to figure out how to make you a summon." Tiffaney informed as she flipped through the pages. "It adds spells to it's pages based off of magic it sees."
"Ahhh." The supersoldier giggled, and stated matter-of-factly to the book "Don't bother. I'm completely sans magic, and besides; Do you want some pervy person to get ahold of a likeness of me? You'd never get any rest, book or not!"
Tiffaney paused for a moment. "... He says he doesn't understand what you mean." She said for the book, that raised an eyebrow to her. "He mostly sees everything as information, learning what he sees and forgetting what isn't useful."
"Ah, gotcha. Perhaps you could translate to him what I meant?" Shiori asked. "Also, we're gonna need to get you dressed."
"Actually I'm more combat capable in this outfit then you'd think." Tiffaney said with a grin that vaguely resembled Alexis' when she was up to something, before she took off her glasses and put them away. She then jumped into the arena and began speed reading a few incomprehensible spells out loud that would have made any onlookers wonder how a human tongue was capable of pronouncing some of the words, causing her to temporarily glow at the completion of each spell.
"Well, if you want, but ok. Besides, I kinda wanted to see you in the gym outfit. Ah well." She jumped into the ring soon after, and grinned widely. "Keep it sane?" And in seconds dipped into her boxing stance.
Tiffaney continued to read off a couple more spells before looking up from her book. "As sane as I can." She said, tossing the book into the air where it floated. "Ready."
Shiori gave a sharp nod, before her face went into 'soldier-mode'. Tiffaney then realized that was a dangerous look to receive, magic or not. Shiori crouched down almost imperceptibly, before shooting forward like a rocket, opting for the direct approach for now.
Tiffaney planted herself firmly in place, the rust from going over twenty years without combat showing as she slammed a foot on the ground, causing several plumes of fire to erupt in front of Shiori.
She skidded to a halt before crouching into a jump, to get over and around the flames. The second Shiori landed, she made a beeline for Tiff once more, testing her defenses.
Tiffaney pointed to the ground behind Shiori, a rune appearing where she pointed before she rose the other hand, a bolt of lightning striking in front, bringing her hands out to her sides causing a powerful gust of wind to blast against her opponent. Her left eye began to glow purple as she created a duplicate to take her place, and stepped back out of it, creating a rune underneath her doppelganger.
With her stance nearly knocked out of place by the wind, Shiori skidded again, before making a dead-on pounce to her target.
Tiffaney grinned, detonating the rune the moment Shiori reached striking distance of her duplicate, taking advantage of the smoke to change position, making a small chant, causing the book to release a miasma into the room.
Shiori was blown back again, cursing herself for falling for such an easy ruse. Nonetheless, with her ears turning to a fro, Shiori caught the sound of Tiff's voice, and turned to face her. In a split second, Shiori was nearly on top of the scientist yet again.
Tiffaney sent another doppleganger to charge Shiori, following a split second behind it, the doppleganger swinging to the left as she swung to the right.
Shiori was ready for this one. She kept her ears trained for any footfalls not belonging to her or the Tiff directly before her. She smirked as she caught the sound, ducked easily beneath the punch, flipping the doppel into the air where it vanished in the process before attempting one more far faster pounce.
Tiffaney held her palm towards her airborne target and shot off a fireball.
Shiori had to act fast to prevent being cooked. She reared back in mid air and threw a calculated punch with enough force to shatter the fireball with the sonicboom alone. However, the force was more than enough to slow her flight towards her target.
Tiffaney held up her arms as the shockwave knocked her back and scattered the miasma away, recovering in time to duck under Shiori while the miasma seeped back to coat the floor.
The supersoldier rolled as she landed, her skin getting goosebumps from the miasma pervading the arena. Shiori looked up at her target yet again before barreling forward for the third time, not even bothering to change tactics it seemed.
Tiffaney hopped back, making a quick chant, causing the book to change pages and fire a beam of light to Shiori while Tiffaney pulled out a white book, and readied her defence.
Shiori charged forth, ducking under the beam and made her way towards her target. However, she stopped less than two feet away, skidded to the right, crouched down and ROCKETED up towards the book hanging in mid-air.
Tiffaney was about to block when Shiori suddenly changed targets, taking advantage of the momentary respite to chant a slightly longer spell from the second book. The first book closing to watch Shiori rocket towards it, opening it's mouth to erupt an ear piercing screech, causing Tiffaney to flinch, but not lose her place.
Expecting a bigger blast, Shiori had mixed feelings about the sound now ringing in her ears. But with her momentum unimpeded, she easily made it to the book, nabbed it, and landed. Before Tiff could do anything, Shiori relaxed, held out a hand, and pointed to the book. "Shall we consider this out of the match? Real fight, it'd have been shredded or something. Agreed?"
Tiffaney, who was in the middle of chanting a spell, couldn't really stop at this point without it exploding on her continued on, looking about awkwardly. The first book looked to Shiori before glowing white and vanishing.
"That works." Game face back on, and Shiori ducked into her stance once more, waiting for whatever it is her target was about to do.
Tiffaney put her game face back on as well, tossing up the book as she finished her chant, catching it in her other hand before thrusting it towards Shiori, the ground around the snowleopard girl glowing threateningly before a wall of light with a fifteen foot radious blasted upwards centered on her.
Shiori did her level best to get out of the way, making a last second roll out of the pillar. She was nearly successful, but in the process her back and tail got singed, obliterating what fabric caught in the blast. Shiori winced for all of a split second before the nanites in her system healed the damage and turned off her pain receptors in the process. Shiori stood up, what remained of her shirt falling off, and faced her target once again. Tiff got a good look at her opponent for a few seconds before Shiori started blazing off and around the scientist. Unlike before, Shiori was doing everything she can to keep moving, constantly, to not provide an easy target.
Tiffaney's mouth opened as she got a momentary eyeful, her inner highschooler screaming at her about how it wasn't fair that this was happening now. Once Shiori got to moving again Tiff jumped back, leaving a distraught looking doppleganger where she was. Once she landed she pointed out several spots in the arena to plant explosive runes. "Not good, not good, not good."
The doppleganger didn't last more than a few seconds before it was shredded into thin air. Add to this, each time Tiff threw out one of her mine-traps, the blur known as Shiori would run through them, set them off, and continue on her way as though nothing had happened.
After the last of her runes went off Tiffaney took a defensive stance, feeling legitimately threatened. In the instant Shiori was in the air and about to pounce her, Tiffaney nearly transformed on instinct, the act of suppressing the urge leaving her open for Shiori to nab Tiff. The two rolled for a moment, with Shiori ending atop the scientist, glaring down with her most potent "You're Dead" face, causing the scientist's eyes to widen, every instinct she had telling her to transform. The supersoldier's fist went up, and rocketed down towards the pinned Tiffaney, causing the poor girl to close her eyes instinctively in response to the impending impact.
A massive breeze blew Tiff's hair everywhere, but nothing else struck her.
After a few moments, Tiffaney hesitantly opened an eye to see Shiori's fist less then a centimetre from her face, then she opened her other eye, looking down to where Shiori was positioned, then up to what remained of her clothing, then at her face as her own turned red. "Why?" She muttered. "Why couldn't this've happened in high school!?" She yelled before crying in pity for herself.
That snapped Shiori totally out of her fighting train of thought, looking utterly bewildered and concerned. "I-I-I thought I stopped! Did I hit you?? And what do you mean high school?" She bent down to inspect Tiff's face, completely worried for her friend's sake.
Tiffaney shook off her self-pity, a cold sweat breaking out from her forehead, and she'd have prodded her fingers against one another if it weren't for the fact her arms were pinned under Shiori. "Well." She turned her head to the side and looked away from Shiori with a nervous grin. "You might think me a bit of a pervert for this, but when I was in high school... I... Fancied women." She explained. "And something like this." She cleared her throat. "Was a..." She cleared her throat again. "A bit of a, uhh. Fantasy... Of mine..." She explained further, the cold sweat intensifying in tandem with her red cheeks.
"I. Uh. Oh. Oh dear." Shiori reddened big time herself, before finally noticing the position she and Tiff was in. And the state of dress for herself to boot. "Ohhh. Uh. Oh." She cleared her throat too, and started to get up and off. "I'm sorry I'm sorry I didn't mean to make this awkward!"
"No, no. It's not your fault!" Tiffaney clarified, closing her eyes and smiling nervously. "Just some misfired magic and old feelings I used to have towards the same gender." She said with a nervous laugh that trailed off. "I'm a total pervert." She said, that being the true defeat today.
Shiori looked even more worried, and hurried to get off of Tiff, before picking her up and hugging the gal. "No, no you're not. Simple as that." She set Tiff back on her feet, and grinned mightily. Shiori planted her fists on her hips in a superman pose. "With some more training, with your skills, I bet you could become way more powerful than this! Imagine if those mines had less fuse time? Oh! And your book! That book needs to get a stronger defense."
Tiffaney kept her eyes closed and tried to ignore the soft during the hug, keeping them closed to during Shiori's pose. "Normally I would've prepared something, but most of his defenses are lethal." Tiffaney explained as she took off her lab coat, opening her eyes to drape it over Shiori, being sure to cover her chest as much as she could.
"What're yo- oh. Right." Shiori blushed harder, and tried to make it so the coat was as closed as possible. "Uh, there. How's that?"
Tiffaney stepped back and looked at her, pausing for a bit. "It's no use." She said, closing her eyes as tears streamed from them. "My mind's totally in the gutter..." She admitted, dropping to her knees. "I'm too old for this! Blasted twenty-three year old body!"
Shiori was stymied, unsure of how to help with this. She resolved to simply help Tiff to her feet and escort her from the arena. "Uh..well, don't they say you're only as old as you feel? So... If you feel like a twenty three year old, why not embrace it? Or something?" Shiori gave a nervous giggle, before pausing a short while. "I, uh, I didn't scare you too badly, did I?"
"You were a bit scary at the end, but that's fine." Tiffaney said with a sigh. "And I can't be a twenty-three year old. Eva's twenty-five, Dev's seventeen, and Johnny and Lexi ARE twenty-three... It'd just be awkward if their mother began acting like a peer."
"Well...uh. Hrm." The snowleopard girl thought for a moment. "Well, you're still plenty spry overall. If yer gonna be immortal, I don't think you can worry about your age too much. So! Enjoy it! I guess?" She wasn't sure. "I haven't thought about it much, but that kinda thinking does pop in from time to time."
"That one the one good thing about the old lab. There was a mist that they dispersed through the vents to suppress the libido of scientist and specimen alike." Tiffaney said with a sigh. "Now that I'm out. It's really hitting me hard that I'm STILL twenty-three." The scientist confessed.
"Oof. If that's the case, I can imagine." Shiori and Tiff made it back to Tiff's lab, with Tiff peeking every so often to give directions. "I...I'm sorry. I really am. I didn't mean to make you so flustered. Can uh..." Shiori paused and blushed hard, "Can we still spar every so often? It'd be good for us. And the workouts too?"
"Of course! I'll just have to avoid any incendiary spells." Tiffaney said. "And it's not your fault. I don't even think it's my fault. It's just... How I am... Still." She sighed. "I'm just glad I didn't creep you out." She said with relief. "Oh, and you can keep my coat until you get a proper shirt... Speaking of which, do you want me to pay to replace your old one?"
"Nah, I'm fine. I can get one made again by Skorpion. He seemed to relish the challenge of making one capable to work for me to begin with." Shiori noted to Tiff. "And you're not a creep at all. See, a creep would have just planted her face in. You just wished that this had happened sooner, is all. Besides, you've slept on them before, remember?"
A bit of redness returned to Tiffaney's cheek as she recalled. "Right. Sorry about that."
"That's news to me." Skorpion remarked as he stepped into the lab, tossing Shiori a new sports bra/tank top combination. "And dear, don't worry. You're not a complete pervert. Lucius is still far, far worse, even if he keeps it mostly bottled up and confined to his girlfriends these days."
The snowleopard soldier caught the top, turned away and put the thing on. "It shouldn't be. I told you what happened when you decided to kidnap me for questioning, remember?" She smirked at Skorpion over her shoulder.
Skorpion chuckled and nodded. "I didn't know it went that deep, though." He grinned back at Shiori, cracking his knuckles loudly. "So, on account of you two waking me up from the first sleep I've had all month with all that magic you were throwing around, maybe you can spar with someone who's more of a physical equal?"
"Oops. Sorry about tha- Wait." She turned to Skorpion, now fully clad in her new gym top. (The colours clashed horribly with her complexion, by the way). "How does a spar wake you up but the thunks of the machine that drew Tiff in in the first place don't?"
Skorpion held up a finger. "One, I built this place; I made sure my bed is insulated from impacts and explosions, and has been since someone started attacking factions with gundams. Two..." Skorpion held up a second finger. "I'm incredibly sensitive to magic. Imagine if someone woke you up with a soldering iron. Now imagine they applied lots of them all over your brain directly. Little tiny ones, and a few big ones in the back of your neck." Skorpion rolled his eyes, flipping the fingers around to point the back of his hand at Shiori, before putting it back. "There's also the fact that Tiffaney's familiar was bothering me about her fighting, but he was fairly easy to ignore from the inside of the giant mech I was piloting."
"Sorry, about the magic." Tiffaney apologized, choosing to let the mention of her familiar slip by.
"Ahh. That, that all makes sense." Shiori grinned apologetically. "Well, I'm sure we didn't mean to wake you up. But as for your spar request..." Shiori looked him over, grinned harder. "Ya know what? Sure. Different styles means more practice means more likely to achieve victory later." She held out a hand, "I accept your challenge! Tiff, ya gonna watch? Please?" Cue snowleopardgirl wibbles. She'd been practicing, and taking tips from Arella.
"Of course I'll watch." Tiffaney agreed.
Skorpion's grin widened. "It'll be good to get some practice on someone who can take more than a few hits."
"We're gonna work on that, but agreed. Shall we?" She made a motion towards the door.
Skorpion nodded, leading the way back to Shiori's workout room. Once there, he proceeded to unstrap the variety of guns, swords, grenades, and other weapons that were attached to his armour, leaving them neatly piled on his trenchcoat, while Tiffaney found a place to sit.
"That is a lot of weapons there, sir" She remarked.
"Got to be prepared." Skorpion pointed out, setting a disposable rocket launcher on top of the pile, next to his boltgun. "Never know when you might encounter a tank, or someone in power armour."
"Or a massive mech. I getcha." She waited for him to finish, then hopped into the sparring arena. Shiori looked about, then wondered. "Did Brittany send you some schematics or something? 'Cause the place looks good as new, but Tiff and I just blew some of it to hell and back."
"No, I just have construction drones on standby, and this place is all prefab concrete panels anyway." Skorpion tapped at a wall before stepping into the arena. "There's a plant in the basements somewhere that fixes up old ones, patches holes, and the like."
"Ah, cool. That explains a lot." She gave a nod to the work, then got into a relaxed fighting stance. "What's yer rules?"
"No weapons, no magic, and stop if I lose any major parts. I don't regenerate like you do, so if you take anything off I'll have to stop so Tiffaney can sew it back on." Skorpion pointed out, settling into a stance of his own before giving the universal 'bring it' gesture. "Otherwise, tap out any time you like."
"Do avoid dismemberment." Tiffaney advised with a warm smile.
"I do intend to, dear. I don't especially want to have to engage Mickey with a missing limb."
"I'd just rather you lose the minimum possible amount of limbs you can at any given time."
"Right, no Wookie style maulings." Shiori gave a business-like nod, then shifted into her boxing stance once again.
Skorpion took a couple of breaths, steadying himself. There was a brief moment of calm before he suddenly closed the distance to Shiori, leading with a reinforced forearm strike to her nose and a hook to the back of her knees.
Caught off guard for the first time in a long time, Shiori ended up taking the blows with little resistance. She flipped backwards to try and gain some distance, before bouncing back towards him. She did her signature rearing back to aim a blow toward Skorpion's own face this time.
Skorpion swung back, catching the blow and using Shiori's momentum to flip her over him and down to the floor on her back. As she descended, he lifted a foot up, bringing it down sharply to stop half an inch shy of her throat. "You don't remember your combatives, do you?"
"Maybe a little." She replied, before sweeping her arm around to knock Skorpion off his foot.
Skorpion was knocked over by the catgirl's strength, slamming into the floor with a *crunch* as his armour's weight worked against him. "Okay, I guess I should have seen that coming." He conceded.
Shiori bounced back up onto her feet, taking a few steps away from him in the process. As Skorpion hauled himself back to his feet, Shiori decided to change stances into that of a slightly bouncy kickboxing stance, raring to go. Skorpion closed the distance again, his leading strike dodged with surprising speed from the catgirl, as were the rapid series of kicks and strikes that followed it. After a while of dodging, Shiori started to take the offensive, making strikes of her own. Skorpion traded blows with her as their speed increased, exchanging strikes, kicks, and parries at a rapid pace until Shiori found an opening.
The opening was when Skorpion stepped back for a roundhouse kick; Shiori snapped a lightning quick punch. Unlike before when she would rear back, she just simply punched with no warning. The sheer speed and force of the attack created yet another sonic blast that whipped the air around the two, enough so that poor TIff was knocked over her seat. When she finished, Shiori simply got back into her fighting stance.
Skorpion was knocked back a few feet by the impact, his boots leaving gouges and cracks in the concrete from the grip spikes in the soles, and the magnetics pulling on the steel plate beneath. He straightened up as he stopped, raising an eyebrow. "Oh, I see. It's like that, is it? Very well." He stepped out of the impromptu ring, starting to shed pieces and layers of armour until he was left with the form-fitting undersuit and significantly less bulk. He hopped from foot to foot before stepping back into the ring, moving much more fluidly. "The gloves are off."
All Shiori did at this point was simply breathe a little heavily, and curl up into a tighter stance. OK, so he removed some armour. How much faster is he really going to be?
Skorpion took the offensive again, moving much faster than before as he attacked in a flurry of elbow and forearm strikes, backed up with the occasional knee strike thrown in for kicks, and for the sake of that terrible pun. The lack of weight had evidently improved his speed, as he moved around Shiori rapidly, staying light on his feet and still managing to strike with a lot of force.
Shiori ducked and weaved as best she could, but she was still caught in a few of his blows. Fortunately for her, what should have taken her out of the fight was merely healed up in seconds. As soon as she got used to his new-found boost, Shiori clenched her fists and started her own offense, mixing in those snap punches of hers with several kicks, chops, and anything else she could think of to put him back onto the defensive.
Skorpion dodged and weaved, parrying or avoiding most of her blows. The few that made it through struck hard, but without much effect against his reinforced body. The rain of strikes on Shiori slowed as he diverted attention to defense, and the two continued to dance around each other, exchanging blows and parries in a fairly even match. Any edge Skorpion got from speed, toughness and skill was absorbed by Shiori's healing, and Shiori's enhanced strength was simply tanked by Skorpion's toughness.
After regaining her seat from the shockwave Tiffaney moved her glasses from being near-sideways on the top of her head to their proper place on her face, quietly watching out of a fear that any noise she made would disrupt them, even as she began to feel a desire to transform and join them.
Shiori ducked down one more time, and was about to go in for another round of traded blows when, all of a sudden, a pair of arms grabbed her around the midsection, squeezing tight before flipping her backwards and SLAMMING Shiori full force onto the concrete. The snowleopard girl wasn't sure how to process this and her concentration broke completely as she was assaulted by a second party. WHAT THE HELL???
Unlike her not-yet-mother, Tali had no such qualms about disruptions; within about five minutes of her unnoticed arrival, she'd jumped into the fray with all the enthusiasm of, well, a sixteen-year-old girl who really, really likes to fight, and has been presented with the perfect opportunity for a sneak attack on her once-and-not-yet-babysitter. The fact that she wasn't in any way dressed for a bout of sparring clearly didn't even enter into the equation, either, given that she was still wearing her typical skater skirt and combat boots combo (though she had, at least, managed to throw on a more appropriate fitted N7 t-shirt that morning, in place of the more typical tank/crop top).
After the initial shock of things, Shiori bent over and bounced back onto her feet, looking warily at her new opponent, her memory kicking in a few seconds late. "What the....Tali? What....what are you doing in here? And why did you suplex me in the middle of a spar?"
"Combative pragmatism," the teen rather smugly informed, dancing back a bit and falling into her own fighting stance, rather handily leaving Shiori caught between herself and her not-yet-dad. "Also, karma for sparring without me." Clearly, such a thing was a grave offense, and not to be tolerated.
"I, wait, what?" Shiori looked between the two. Welp this is going weird. She shook her head, took a few steps back, and readied to go anyways, just in case Skorpion allowed it.
Tali, in turn, just did something with a holo wrist-computer she very likely shouldn't have brought back in time with her, but fsck spoilers, and a second later the room was filled with what she deemed appropriately dramatic .
In the few seconds between the music getting turned on, and Shiori's brain also turning back on, the supersoldier couldn't help but get back into a normal stance, and facepalm mightily. "Tali, this. I. No, just. No. Real fights don't come with their own soundtrack, unless you're dealing with a music-obsessed nutjob. Just. What???"
"Or if you just bring your own soundtrack with you," Tali pointed out, sounding perhaps a little too pleased with herself. It was something she frequently did, after all. "This is Megatokyo - style is like, nine-tenths of the law when it comes to the action-sequences." And this girl clearly knew how to play the game - or rather, game the game.
Skorpion sighed, snapping his fingers and changing the soundtrack to something a little for his sense of style. "Tali, three things. One, stop messing with my network. Two, easy on the future-tech there. And three, go low." He punctuated the last one with an attack on Shiori, going for her chest with a solid but still lightning-fast straight punch, while Tali obediently went for a leg-sweep from behind to see if she could get Shiori to go "ass over tea kettle," as it were.
"Wait wha-oof!" Was all Shiori could get out before the suckerpunch hit. Though, as Skorpion noticed, the blow ended up being rather fairly... padded.
Skorpion laughed as the snowleopardcatgirl went over, propelled by the combination of natural cushioning and a reinforced sports bra, slamming into the floor with a solid *thud*. "Lesson two; Never, ever let your guard down. Especially around Tali." He then reached over the fallen Shiori to take Tali's hand and raise it up in a victory pose. "Flawless Victory!"
"It doesn't work unless you get the voice right, dad," the teen rather cheekily chastised, before turning her gaze on Shiori. "And you need more practice." Future-Shiori was way tougher than that.
"Sorry." Skorpion cleared his throat, before trying again. "FLAWLESS VICTORY! Also, don't call me that in front of people who don't know."
Shiori gave no response, other than drooling slightly.
"Like it even matters at this point." Said a certain Not-Doctor from the door with a coffee in his hand. "By this point I'll be happy if you avoid telling everyone in the city." He said with a shrug.
Skorpion turned, reaching for a gun that wasn't there. "Who the hell are you and how the hell did you get in here?"
Tiffaney stood sharply, pulling out a spellbook as she faced the stranger.
"He's Elsie's not-Doctor," Tali replied for him, not seeming the least bit surprised. "He's also very good at dramatic entrances, though his exits need a bit of work. And I'm not telling everybody, but dad figured it out, and then mom had to know, and Shiori already knows Elsie's from the future, so it isn't like she won't figure it out."
"That's the most of it." The man said with a shrug. "Any chance we could stop letting people know? The paperwork is stacked a little taller than you." He informed, pointing to Tali.
"Hey, I am TRYING to fix it." Skorpion pointed out, stepping over to the pile of weaponry and digging through it briefly. After discarding a few various guns, he pulled out a rocket launcher and pointed it at the not-doctor. "Now get the hell out of my country, or I'll deport you in pieces instead."
"Click, foom, psheeew, booom. Nice shot; said from behind, attempted close range killstrike. Good swing; said from across the room. Rattattattattatta. Clap clap." The man said with a smile. "It'd be a blast, but I'll decline for now. I would however advise you bring Brittany into the fold. She could help get your time travelers home faster."
"Brittany as in the one that phoned me up through half a dozen firewalls to try and recruit me?" Skorpion asked, checking the rocket launcher in his hand. "I doubt she'd oh good lord what am I doing I should know better than to fire one of these indoors if I still want to have an indoors. Excuse me a moment." Skorpion set the rocket down carefully and produced his desert eagle from the pile. "There we go. Thermobaric munitions are not an indoor toy. Where was I? Oh yes. I doubt she'd want to work for me, or could contribute much to it. Unless she could make the shuttle more efficient, of course."
"She's a nice girl. Have Shiori explain circumstances, and I'm sure she'll help... Or at least I think she will. Hard to tell with Tali and Elsie disrupting your timeline." Not-Doctor said as though he weren't at gunpoint, shrugging again.
"Maybe. I DO have it all under wraps, however. Now, I won't repeat myself again. Get out of my country, or I'll turn you into raptor chow." Skorpion gestured with the muzzle of his gun. "Now."
"Are you saying I'll be... History?" He joked, being unable to resist the urge.
"You'll be bloody geography in a minute. Out."
The man shrugged. "If you need me. I'll find you." The man said to Tali before waving to them all with a friendly smile. "See ya, everyone." He said before blinking out of sight.
"Well that was... Odd." Tiffaney said, her ears flickering about as she approached Skorpion.
"Much better exit this time, though," Tali approved.
"That's time travelers for you." Skorpion remarked, setting the gun back down and reaching over to pet Tiffaney's ears briefly.
"Did you know him?" Tiffaney asked with an ever-so-slight purr.
"No, but Elsie told me about him." Skorpion explained. "Wait, is Shiori okay? She went down pretty hard there." He looked over, nudging her with a foot. When there was no response, he knelt down to squeeze her impressive bust, hmm-ing thoughtfully. "Alexis was right; these ARE soft."
Seeing Skorpion suddenly grope her friend, Tiffaney's ears perked alertly. "Skorpion! You can't just grope her like that!" The flustered scientist scolded with a hint of jealousy.
Skorpion chuckled, straightening up and turning to Tiffaney. "Sorry dear, I couldn't resist. Would you like me to do you as well?" He grinned, advancing on her with grabby hands.
"OH MY GOD, dad, I'm right here!" their teenaged daughter from the future complained. Loudly.
Tiffaney jumped a bit at Talitha's loud interjection. "T-that's right, darling. We can't do that sorta thing with our daughter around... Actually with anyone around, but our daughter especially!" She scolded with a faint hint of disappointment.
"Honestly, Tali, it's like you don't even want to be conceived." Skorpion sighed dramatically, reaching up to pet and stroke Tiffaney's ears instead, earning him more purrs.
"Dear. It's normal for teenagers to think their parents being romantic is gross." Tiffaney informed.
"And yet, when she gets a boyfriend, she'll probably be all over him." Skorpion replied. "Assuming, of course, that she can find one worthy of our daughter. He'll probably have to be bulletproof as well."
Shiori, having come to a little by this point after getting groped, slapped his hands away belatedly, a second or two after registering what was going on. "Hands off buster. Date first, like Tiff did." She groggily got back up into a sitting position, holding her head in one hand and covering up her chest with the remaining arm.
Tiffaney nervously prodded her fingers together with red cheeks. "I didn't mean to... Umm. Use them as pillows."
"They seem to have some sort of subconscious hypnosis ability." Skorpion mused, turning to Shiori. "Also, I apologise for the spring effect there. I'll have to include damping and recoil compensation in the next prototype."
"Yeah you will. And that hurt, too." She winced, but the pain was gone in a matter of seconds. "As for the hypnosis, at this point, I am starting to agree."
"What prototype?" Tiffaney asked, her ears perking with curiosity.
"For the thing he had me change into when you burned the first one in a repressed urge to live out your high school fantasy. With Skorpion's permission we can continue that later, ya know?" Shiori grinned to Tiff, not even being able to hold a straight face.
"I-uh-we-um-uh-uhhh." Tiffaney stuttered, her face turning a bright red as she tapped her fingertips together and looked about the room before looking to Talitha. "Daughter!" She said pulling Talitha into a forced hug. "Can't talk about that kinda stuff in front of my daughter." She said with a nervous laugh.
"Then we can talk about it later then, no problem." The supersoldier lady giggled harder in response.
Tali, meanwhile, was looking terribly put upon, and couldn't help but let out a small noise of disgust over the whole affair. "Are we gonna spar some more, or is everybody just gonna talk about boobs now?" Because if they were just gonna talk about boobs and grope each other, she was gonna go back to her latest project.
"Right, sparring. I can't really do much, due to Skorpion's sensitivity to magic, but I'm sure Skorp or Shiori wouldn't mind going a round or two with you." Tiffaney suggested.
The teen girl blinked, actually looking a bit confused for once. "So... fight without using magic, then?" she suggested, as though the solution should have been obvious. Not that she had to spar with mom or anything, it was just a weird reason not to.
"Sorry, dear. I'm not the ruff'n tough brawler I used to be, so I use my spells." Tiffaney informed with as smile, gently moving a few of Tali's stray hairs into place.
"Are too," Tali rather stubbornly returned.
"I'm glad you think I'm tough." Tiffaney said, her smile at the teenager warming. "I'll work hard with Shiori so I can live up to your expectations, okay?"
Skorpion chuckled. "Alright Tali, I'll take you on. No guns, no magical girl nonsense, no armour."
"Hehe. You two have fun. I'm gonna go back to the weights for the... Nah, the treadmill, gonna hit that treadmill. I need to get faster." Shiori nodded to herself. "Tiff, welcome to join me when ya feel like it, and have fun till then." She waved to all of the family, then started to make her way out of the arena.
Tiffaney waved to Shiori before turning to Skorpion and Talitha. "Would you two like me to leave you to daughter-father bonding?"
"If you want to." Skorpion shrugged. "Although if she's as good as she claims she is, I might need backup." He finished, giving Tiffaney a wink.
"Oh? Then I'll watch in case you need me." Tiffaney said with a bit of a giggle before leaving the arena to return to her seat.
"Mom does tend to get mad when you lose your limbs," Tali informed, positively oozing confidence. That said, she knew damn well she was going to get her ass kicked - she never beat dad on her own. The fact that he was willing to pretend right along with her, though, was part of what made her love him so much - even in the past, apparently. That, and the fact that he'd been too busy laughing to ground her for stealing that helicopter that one time.
"No removal of extremities either, then." Skorpion added, wagging a finger at Tali as a warning. "I need all my limbs!"
"And don't you go overboard either, darling." Tiffaney cautioned.
"We're just sparring, dear." Skorpion smiled, reaching down to pat Tali gently on the head.
"Stop touching the hair!" the teen girl predictably objected, albeit with the faintest hint of affection in her tone; there was a good chance this was a regular part of their routine back home.
Skorpion chuckled, stopping short of ruffling said hair; he'd learned his lesson after getting his hand trapped there. "So, are you on? I'm interested to see what I've taught... Will teach you."
"Does it look like I came in here hoping to paint each other's nails?" Tali rather snarkily replied, falling into a fighting stance as naturally as breathing and grinning all the while.
Skorpion chuckled, dropping into a stance of his own after bowing to his future daughter. "A little bit, but maybe we can fit that in later. I have the most WONderful shade of pink for you to try." He snarked, waggling his eyebrows.
Her response was a very appropriate feint, followed by a punch meant to let him know exactly how she felt about that. Even though she did, actually, enjoy the nail painting on occasion. Especially when Elsie was involved.
Skorpion blocked the punch easily, retaliating with one of his own to test the girl's defenses, only to have her duck out of the way and try for another leg sweep.
The sweep was blocked easily by Skorpion's other leg, before it snapped out in a kick aimed at her hip, leading to an honest-to-god backflip out of the way. Tali did cheerleading with her niece, after all.
"Oh, very interesting." Skorpion remarked, advancing on her again with an elbow.
Tali just grinned in response, always so pleased with herself, as she dodged and then grabbed said elbow with a good yank to throw him off balance or even right off his feet, using his own momentum against him.
Skorpion responded by grabbing Tali, taking her down with him and using his weight to press her into the floor. So the teen did about the only thing she could do - aimed a knee at the only easily reached vulnerable spot available to her to help her escape.
Skorpion winced as the knee hit, twitching before throwing Tali off him and across the room. "Ouch. I hope you realise that this means war." He stated, in a somewhat higher voice than normal.
"Tali, be careful. If you hit too hard you could erase yourself." Tiffaney advised from the sidelines.
"Hey, you taught me to defend myself," Tali informed, definitely pleased with herself, after catching herself with the help of some acrobatics. Clearly, this was her idea of fun, and she was going to enjoy herself.
Skorpion hopped back to his feet, chuckling. "I will have taught you, you mean." He replied, correcting her tenses. "Time travel, remember."
"Have will have taught me," the teen smugly corrected back, before heading in to try and get a punch in.
Skorpion's response was to grab her arm and pull, before throwing her bodily across the room again. "I can keep this up all day, you know."
"I do, in fact," Tali informed, rather sounding as though she had will have tested it, before very teasingly adding, "You're gonna need that energy to keep up with me." From the second she started walking, really. This time, she waited for him to come to her.
Skorpion chuckled, advancing slowly towards her, staying in a guard stance, while Tali observed him cautiously, waiting for the first sign of his next move.
Skorpion attacked suddenly with a flurry of blows, closing the distance almost instantly. Interestingly, his not-yet-daughter didn't actually seem terribly interested in dodging them all; on top of his, quite simply, being too fast for her yet, there were definitely some blows that she should have been able to dodge, but took instead - and they didn't seem to be having nearly as much effect on her as they should have. He could knock her back easily enough, but she never quite seemed to go down.
The reasoning behind this quickly became clear, however, when she finally claimed a brief opening between blows to hit him back, and managed to land a punch not only with her own (fairly impressive) strength, but that of all those she'd taken, as well.
Skorpion grunted as the blow forced him backwards, eyebrows raising in surprise. "Well, THAT'S new."
"Good job, Tali!" Tiffaney cheered from the sidelines.
Tali's grin was about a mile wide, though she clearly tried to hide it; her parents' praise was something she rather treasured, even as she refused to admit it. "What, you mean mom hasn't shown you that one, yet?" the teen inquired, opting for banter in an attempt to cover up that whole yay, I made mom proud! moment, even as she moved in to deliver another blow.
"Nope." Skorpion replied, swatting her strike aside casually. "I figure I should spar her sometime, but I fear it'd be a little one-sided." He continued as he countered Tali's next strike, knocking her back a few feet.
"She does have a tendency to kick your ass," the teen snarked back, absorbing both the blow and the force of her fall as she rather pointedly avoided catching herself, before rushing in for another punch of her own.
Skorpion caught her punch, his shoulders absorbing the force of impact. "Exactly. I AM weak against magic, and there's only so much my training can do without being able to use a finishing move." He flipped Tali up and over his head, bringing her down in a perfect suplex.
Tali, for her part, just made a point of grabbing hold of him on the way down and refusing to let go even as it knocked the wind out of her. Of course, the moment she regained the ability to breathe, she was redirecting the force of her impact right back at him with an attack of her own - all while pointing out, with an almost wicked grin, "Mom doesn't need magic to kick your ass."
"You sound so confident about that." Skorpion pointed out as her attack barely moved him. "Considering that I've got training in at least three unarmed fighting styles, and have flat-out invented my own style of sword play?"
"Yeah, but mom kicks ass as a general rule," Tali informed, as she rather absently tried kicking him; she's already lost, and she knew it. She then grinned another of those rather wicked and definitely mischievous grins, before adding, "Also, she has boobs, which can make for very effective distractions."
Tali would know - she used hers in real fights all the time.
"That would be cheating, however. And don't you even think of that; I see your experession there." Skorpion warned her, catching her foot and tossing her across the room once again while he got back onto his feet.
"EEEEWWW, like I would use that with my DAD," a thoroughly disturbed Tali objected, looking thoroughly, well, disturbed. All-in-all, she actually seemed pretty used to be tossed about like a ragdoll - and to losing, at least when it came to her dad. It still made for good practice, however. "For mom, though... Well, all's fair in love and war," she snarked, before trying to launch herself back at him again.
Skorpion caught her in mid-air, holding her at arm's length before hanging her on a hook by the collar of her shirt, stepping back out of kicking distance to point a warning finger at her. "For your future husband ONLY, young lady."
Tali let out a decidedly unladylike snort at that, though it was perhaps worth noting that she also totally allowed him to hang her up like a slab of meat. "That's rich, coming from the one who has will have taught me all about combat pragmatism," she snarked. "If a faceful of boobs will help keep you alive, you use them. And who says I'm even going to have a future husband?" The teen somehow managed to look defiant, even while hanging from a hook - at least, until a rather more thoughtful frown appeared on her face as something occurred to her. "Though, Augie rather seems to expect me to." She wondered if she should be at all concerned about that.
"Yeah, he'll do that apparently. Broke into my dreams the first time I slept with your mother, and demanded I face him in single combat to earn the right to." Skorpion chuckled. "Kicked his ass. Can't help but wonder if he's why she was single for so long, though."
"Auger beat me pretty bad last time I fought him." Tiffaney informed from her seat.
"Well, I hope you let him know how rude that was," Tali declared, not being remotely afraid of informing the familiar of such things herself. "Also, can I get down now, before the hook ruins my shirt?" She quite liked her N7 top, after all.
Skorpion removed his future daughter from the hook, setting her down on the floor and patting her head. "There we go. And no, I will not stop touching the hair. Anything that annoys you that much has to be worth it."
That just earned him a Death Glare the likes of which only a teenager could deliver. A Very Irritated teenager.
"Are you two done?" Tiffaney asked with a cheery smile.
"I dunno, I haven't quite decided whether it'd be worth it to just take his hand off yet," the displeased teen informed, still glaring. Though she probably wasn't being serious.
"Don't make me send you back to the stone age." Skorpion warned her. "Or out to the asteroid belt with Devin and Whisp."
"Can't~" Tali informed. "Sending me to the stone age would mean also sending Elsie, and you'd never do that. And sending me into space would require you to reconfigure all your weight distribution, especially given all the extra food we'd need." She then stuck her tongue out at him before making her way towards mom. "That, and mom'd kill you."
"Then don't make me name you Nancy." Skorpion replied. "Or put you back up on the hook."
Tali barked out a laugh at that. "You know a Nancy, you'd never do that," she returned; whether he'd actually met said Nancy yet or not was irrelevent. "Besides, Arella loves the name Tali. And you can't put me on the hook, 'cause mom and I are gonna go for lunch." As the teen had decided right that moment.
"Ah, but it's your middle name. I've decided." Skorpion shot back with a smug grin. "Talitha Nancy Jawoh."
Tali just raised an eyebrow at him, replying with an impressively deadpan, "So the part of my name that no one uses is Nancy. Oh no, please don't, that would be mean." Or in other words, so?
"Unless we're mad at you." Skorpion countered. "Talitha Nancy Dorothy Jawoh, put that down RIGHT NOW!"
"That's what Talitha is for," the teen rather smugly pointed out. "And if I'm really in trouble, you don't generally have enough time for that many names, anyway."
"Then you're working the vents with Cathal for a week."
"Or I might be, if I'd actually opted to remove your hand." She was definitely sounding smug now. "But I think I'll just go out for lunch with mom, instead."
Tiffaney giggled before giving her daughter a hug, finding the entire 'argument' to be cute. "Is there something you wanna talk about, dear? Or did you just wanna spend time with your mom?" She asked, smiling gently to Talitha. "I'm happy either way."
"Well, we haven't had any mother/daughter time yet, really," Tali pointed out, something in her tone seeming to be teasingly meant for the uninvited Skorp. She then further confessed, "And I don't wanna get grounded when I get home. Also, I'm hungry."
"Alright. Is there anywhere in this time you'd like to eat?" Tiffaney asked as she guided her daughter to the exit.
"Somewhere with steak and chips," the teen was quick to decide.
"Fair enough." Tiffaney agreed with a nod. "You wouldn't happen to have any baby pictures would you? Maybe some from your early childhood?" She asked, absolutely needing to know.
"Spoilers!" Skorpion called after them.
"Uh, yeah. That," Tali agreed, having been looking a bit nervous at the very idea of showing those kinds of pictures to anybody.
Skorpion snickered, already noting down to show them to any potential boyfriends if they made it past the traditional threats and intimidation. Or survived the traditional assassination attempts.
