The atmosphere is a bustle as people crowd into the arena to watch the tournament.
Chris: We’re just about ready to start, but that Genma guy you wanted to fight first doesn’t seem to have shown up yet.
Nemo: Don’t worry, I’ll try to find him.
Shermie: Okay. You’d better hurry, I’m going to start making the preliminary announcements soon.
Nemo: Hai! *teleports away*

He recognized several people right off the bat. Each of them were former KoF competitors. And legends in fighting circles worldwide.
As was his compatriot obviously, Genma observed. Several of the contestants were outright staring at his acquaintance. Some with a frown, some unreadable, and some, like Choi, with pure rage. Genma turned and spoke.*
Genma: You seem to have a reputation even here Keiya.
*The leader of the Tenpouin yakuza clan nodded silently, eyes still locked with Choi Bounge*
Keiya: It would be best if we registered. Were I to stay here much longer, there would be some....'unpleasantness'.
*Genma agreed, and the two of them headed for the signing booth. As walked along, Keiya once again spoke, an unusual occurence for him.*
Keiya: This favor you have done cancels your family's debt to the clan. After this is over we will have no further need for your services.
Genma: Whatever. I knew you were looking for a competition to help further sharpen your skills. Probably because you're getting ready to return to I-Praseru.
*Keiya tensed at the mention of the name. Genma rolled his eyes.*
Genma: I already know about your battles against Ihadurca and the others. And that you're doing it to bring Himika back. There's no need to get all uptight about it.
Keiya: If it's all the same, I'd rather leave this discussion for another time.
*The two of them continued on their way. As the tournament drew closer.*

Nemo: There you are Mr. Bak... I mean Mr. Genma! You’d better hurry up, I’ve made it so you get to fight first!
In the center of the ring Shermie has a microphone as is making the preliminary announcements.
Shermie: Hello everyone and welcome to our 1994 King of Fighters Tournament, brought to you by South Town’s Geese Howard and Japan’s own CYS! *pauses as cheering commences* To start this tournament off with a bang we’ve got something extra special planned for you in the first match, a talented newcomer to fighting circuit named Genma the Destroyer is going to be competing against someone you may remember as the host of a similar tournament a few years back - Germany’s own, Wolfgang Krauser! *more cheering*
Nemo: Good luck Mr. Genma!
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-25-2002 04:11 PM
Krauser: I sense great strength in you, the power of an experienced warrior. Perhaps I've finally found someone else other than Mr. Bogard who can give me a.....fulfilling battle. Do you look forward to it?
Genma:*Snorting*Give me a moment, and I'll show you the fight of your life.
Krauser:Intriguing. Go ahead. I can wait.
*Genma nodded, and mentally shut off the auto-spells surrounding him. Various barriers and failsafes deactivated, giving him a blue hue before fading. He then willed his armor away, leaving him in a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt.*
Krauser: I see, you don't want to have any unfair advantages. Quite honorable.
Genma: Let's just fight.
Krauser: Very well.
*The two of them got into their battle stances, both watching the other, looking for the right moment of weakness to strike. A leaf wafted across the battlefield, and settled upon the ground.
They rushed forward.*

He'd been wrong.
While he was much stronger and tougher than his opponent, it seemed Wolfgang surpassed him in speed. He had to be moving about mach 2, double what Genma was capable of. Therefore, this came down to an old stereotype, strength and toughness vs. speed. With skill and experience being the other supporting factors.
Krauser blurred from view as Genma came around with an axe kick. The piece of arena he'd previously occupied shattering from the force of the blow. Genma, seeing his prey had eluded him once more, hastily turned around to ward off any counterattacks.
The YVW2 figure cried out in pain as his gut was introduced to a knee, and his chin to a fist. Genma went flying backwards, laying in a heap several feet away. Krauser slowly walked forward, a frown marring his face.*
Krauser: This is it? This is the grand battle I was guranteed by the young one? We've been fighting for barely ten minutes! Bogard lasted longer than that in out first encounter! Perhaps you have been...overestimated.
Genma: Nope. Just playing possom.
Genma: Critical Flare!
*The German barely had time to react as he was engulfed in a flash of light.*
*The crowd ducked as shards of the arena came flying their way once more. Ever since the two contestants had begun introducing special techniques into the skirmish, everything around them began getting fragged. The fighting square, the area nearby, even the stands.
At the moment both competitors were simply staring at one another. Krauser's armor had long since fallen off, coming apart during the Thunder Sword attack. Genma's sweatshirt was now a comparative rag, reduced to nothingness due to a Blitzball Blast.
Both were beginning to tire, both were beginning to run low on power, but neither allowed themselves to faulter. It was all or nothing.
The two nodded, in agreement with one another. Playtime was over.
Krauser lowered himself into a new stance, one that made Terry Bogard, standing nearby, gasp. Terry knew of it, because it was the start of a technique he himself used. And one Krauser had learned by seeing just once. The ultimate move of his style.*
Terry: Hado Senpu Kyaku
*Krauser chuckled as winds began whipping all around him. Pieces of the now useless platform flew into the air, before disintegrating because of the force.
Genma calmly watched him. He retrieved a spear from his sub-space pocket, and concentrated. There would be only one way to defeat Krauser's next attack. With a similar one.
Soon, the German's cyclone was met with another, this one with Genma in the very center.
The showdown was set. It was go time.
Krauser: Hado Senpu Kyaku!!
Genma: Spinning Edge!
The two forces clashed, and struggled against one another. Inside, Krauser lashed out, only to be met with the handle of a spear. He and his opponent parried one another, neither landing a single blow. Too evenly matched. Too hard to get an advantage.
And then something changed, and the whirlwinds began to collapse.
And everything got dark....
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-25-2002 05:13 PM
Keiya: You and your 'sparring' buddy totally trashed the place with your final attacks. He's still unconscious over by the stands. So I guess you won this match.
Genma: *Groaning* Sure as hell doesn't feel like I won. Guy packs a mean punch.
Keiya: Right. You should have just used all your abilities and made this whole thing end in milliseconds.
Genma: It's called fairplay, man. Ever heard of it?
Keiya: *Flatly* Fairplay won't get Himika returned to me. Killing that damned witch Ihardurca and taking her power will.
Genma: Whatever. Let's just help Nemo get this place cleaned up. She's gonna kill me.
Written by The Real Nemo 09-25-2002 06:02 PM
Chris: Well look on the bright side, at least the fight generated a heck of a lot of energy...
Nemo: Grrr... *teleports down to where Genma is, and puts on a forced smile* Great fight Mr. Genma! Now um, I don’t suppose you have a quick way to repair the arena do you? We kind of need it...
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-25-2002 06:30 PM
Genma:Of course! Valkryie! Just wait a few minutes Nemo! I'll have this all taken care of.
*That said, Genma teleported away. Keiya now looked at Nemo. Then to Chris.*
Chris: There something wrong?
Keiya:You do realize we know what you are, don't you?
Chris: What we are?
Keiya: *Nodding* The Tenpouin clan prides ourselves on our information gathering services. We know all about the Orochi, and the Heavenly Kings. And everything else. As does Genma, but he ignores it. Please don't try anything during this tournament. Genma is trusting you. Make sure you don't betray that trust.
Chris: I assure you, we have nothing-
Keiya: Just keep with the tournament. And they'll be no problem.
*Genma teleports back with Lenneth.*
Genma:I got this whole thing solved! I'll get the damage repaired, and make sure nothing else like this occurs. Lenneth?
Lenneth: It's simple. I'll reverse the damage to the arena. Like so. *She snaps her fingers, and everything is repaired. Onlookers get confused* And from now on, the area around the fighting platform will be protected by a energy barrier. Preventing further damage, or danger to the audience. Until this is all over, I'll stay here with the all of you and watch over things.
Genma: See? Told ya I'd come through!
Lenneth: *Looking at Chris* And I'll be watching over you as well spriteling.
Chris: I'm noticing a trend here.....

Nemo: It looks great, you even got the symbol right! *points to the Omega symbol in the center*
The judges are signaling about something, and she looks over to them.
Nemo: Congratulations! It looks like you won this round Mr. Genma. *cute smile* There are refreshments in the back if you want, help yourself!
Turns back to Ishtar.
Nemo: Now what was I saying? Oh yeah! How strong are you Imouto-chan?
Written by The Real Nemo 09-25-2002 07:22 PM
Chris: There’s more to some of these fighters than meets the eye. That Genma guy is good for one thing, really good. He was holding back something in that fight, I could tell. Not only that, but he and his friends seem to know an awful lot about us, and you saw what that woman did to the arena. If they make it all the way to the finals, do you think we’ll be able to handle them?
Yashiro: I don’t care how good he is, no human can match the power of Orochi.
Shermie: Right, we’ll take them out no problem. You’ll see.
Yashiro: So, is anyone else having doubts about our little “Orochi no Tenshi”?
Chris: She’s definitely insane, but her plan seems to be working so far.
Yashiro: *scowl* She’d just better not try anything funny.

*Ishtar runs around with a cute smile*
Compiler's note: The following two scenes with Ishtar vs. Kim was later retconned to be Pellcia vs. Kim.
Written by Pellcia 09-25-2002 08:47 PM
Kim Kaphwan: Huh?! What is this!
Ishtar: Umm... A tournment.
Kim Kaphwan: Not that! Why are you up here?
Ishtar: I have to fight you.
Kim Kaphwan: WHA!!! No way! I got to fight a little girl! *sigh* what's this world coming too?
Ishtar: Well, are we going to fight now or later.
Kim Kaphwan: There's no way I'm fighting a little girl.
Ishtar: But if you don't then you'd lose.
Kim Kaphwan: Grrr..... Fine, I guess I have no choice. I'm not going to go easy on you just because your a little girl, you know that right.
Ishtar: *sigh* Whatever, let's just get on with this.
Written by Pellcia 09-26-2002 05:44 PM
Kim: *Sigh* Why do I always get stuck like this.
Finally, the bell rings and the match begins.
Kim begins right away by launching a massive assult of kicks in Ishtar's dirction, though he said he wasn't going to hold back he keep the power of each kick lower then he usually would....He didn't want to kill the girl.
Somehow, Ishtar dances out of the way. Kim spins around and goes for another attack, but Ishtar proves to be very quick on her feet and jumps out of the way again.
Kim: Hmm... This isn't how I pitured this battle.
Kim, who had been holding back for a little while, begain to speed up his moves. With some lighting fast kicks he manage to land a hit on Ishtars leg. She jumped around the arena on one foot.
Ishtar: Owowowowowow!!!! HOW RUDE!!
Ishter stoped and stared cutely at Kim.
Ishtar: Now I guess I'll have to teach you some manners. *cute smile*
With that, Ishtar began glowing a bight gold color. Kim stared in stock but quickly went in to attack again. But as he prepared to strike, for the first time in years........He triped on his own feet. He landed head first in front of Ishtar who put a concerned look on her face.
Ishtar: Oh, are you hurt Mr. Kaphwan! Here, let me help you up...*offers her hand*
Kim looks up at the smiling Ishtar and begins to put his hand up but pulls it back thinking it must be a trick.
Ishtar: *sigh* I guess I'll have to do this another way.
Ishtar leaps forward and grabs Kims face. He screms in agony and trys to pull away from her grip but finds his power slowly dissapering. Within moment he falls on the ground, unable to get up.
Kim: *cough* Please, you win! Just, help me up.
Kim raises his hand to Ishtar but she simply smiles at him.
Ishtar: Sorry, but you didn't want my help remember. You didn't take it just a moment ago so why should I give it now.
Kim: *Hack* *cough*
Ishtar: Oh Mr. Kaphwan! Thanks for the new powers though.
Kim has just enough time to look up before Ishtar lands a power kick to his chin, sending him out of the arena.
Ishtar put's on a cute smile and does a victory dance while Pellcia down in the crowd stares wide eyed.
Pellcia: I really shouldn't have got her that mortal kombat game.

Shermie: Good you’re here, the next round is about to begin.
Nemo: I know, it’s my completely kawaii-kune Imouto-chan that’s going to be fighting.
Shermie: *squinting down at the arena* Didn’t she used to be younger?
Nemo: Kind of…
Chris: By the way, who’s this Genma’s friend scheduled to fight this round?
Nemo: Um… *looking through the list* Yuri Sakazaki.
Yashiro: Sakazaki, that name sounds familiar…
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-26-2002 04:24 PM
Father, Takuma, brother, Ryo, current beau, Robert Garcia. Practiced her family's Karate style. Her techniques themselves, though, reminded him of certain group of Shokotan fighters he'd met before.
She was a very well known person around South Town. And the underground circuit.
At least he'd get some entertainment.
Perhaps it would be better to give his condolences before the match started. That way her kin and friends would be prepared for what was to come.
That decided, he set to tracking down his future opponent. He found her near the west stands, idly kicking around one of the few remaining pieces of debrie.*
Yuri: Oh, hello. I didn't see you there.
*Ryo, Takuma, and Robert turned to look at him as well*
Keiya: I thought it would be best to have a talk with you before the match began. That way......you could ready yourself.
Yuri: I don't quite think I understand. What do you mean?
*Takuma's eyes narrowed*
Takuma: I know what he means. He's planning on taking this match to it's fullest extent. Even if it means one of you getting seriously hurt.
Yuri: *Gasping* But why?! This is only a tournament!
Keiya: This isn't 'only' a tournament. This is a contest to see who is the best of the best. To take our skills to their fullest. And truly seperate the weak from the strong. And the only way to see how far we have to go. I have something very important to me coming up, and the outcome will depend on my strength. Therefore, when our match starts...
*The head of the Tenpouin clan looked up, and met her eyes.*
Keiya:......I'm going to do my best to break you.

Genma: Told you these tournaments got kinda goofy.
Lenneth: *Mumbling* Shut up.

Nemo: Hi Mr. Genma! Next round you're going to be fighting the winner of this next match. *nods towards the ring, Mai Shiranui and Robert Garcia are already starting to enter* Who will you be rooting for?
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-26-2002 06:49 PM
Genma: I would root for Mai, and for reasons I don't need to explain. *Lenneth twitched* But if we were pitted against one another I'd probably be too busy watching her jump around *Lenneth twitched again* to effectively fight back. So as much as it pains me, I'll go for Robert.
*Genma looked back to the platform*
Genma: Besides, I've always wanted to bash that stupid dweeb. Maybe take that ponytail of his as a souvenir.
Written by The Real Nemo 09-26-2002 07:06 PM
Mai: Nippon ichi!!
Nemo: *lifting up Robert's ponytail* Well, you can take it now if you want...
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-27-2002 05:53 PM
Genma: Interesting course of events, eh?
Lenneth: This bodes ill. Not only is that group of urchins running this tournament up to something, but we also have several other parties with their own agendas. Your comrade Keiya included.
Genma: *Shrugs* I don't really care. Keiya is no one to worry about. All he wants is to grow strong enough to beat Ihadurca.
Lenneth: Ihadurca......I've heard of her. The 'one existance' Lea.
Genma: You know of her?
Lenneth: Indeed. Odin used to speak of her. A being that existed in multiple dimensions at the same time. Truly, a respectable power. Your friend has a long way to go before he can challenge her. I hear people over 10,000 years old haven't been able to do it.
Genma: *Nods* He'll get there though. Someone with a drive like his can't fail.
Lenneth: What are you going to do about the others here?
Genma: If they try anything, we'll stop it. No muss, no fuss. I doubt there's anyone who can even so much as tickle you here. Even if we were all to band together.
Lenneth: I'll only interevene if necessary. My obligations are different.
Genma: Understood. Guess Keiya and I will just have to be ready, eh?
Lenneth: *Smiling* Perhaps.

She points to the next match on her list, which reads "Chang Koehan vs. Iori Yagami", then teleports away, leaving Robert still passed out at Genma's feet.
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-27-2002 06:00 PM
Genma: Heh, it's an early Christmas.
Genma found Keiya staring into the sky nearby the fighting platform. He looked blankfaced, though that was common with him. His mind tended to wonder. Genma understood why, Keiya lead a complicated life.
Genma: Ready for your match?
Keiya: Preparedness is a virtue. One that I'm never without. You should know that by now.
Genma: Right. What do you think of Yuri?
Keiya: She reminds me of Midori. Weaker though, and without the same extreme drive to improve herself. Which would explain the former difference.
Genma: Sounds like you don't believe this is gonna be very hard.
Keiya: Oh, it will be tough. On her. But maybe that's what she needs. What everyone here needs for that matter. They just don't know it yet. Pity.
Written by The Real Nemo 09-27-2002 07:22 PM
Chris: So? What do you think?
Yashiro: *shakes his head* He’s no match for Yagami, this is almost painful to watch.
Chris: Not about that. I mean, how long do you think it will be before we’re ready?
Shermie: Not too much longer I hope. I’m going crazy just sitting around like this, I want some action!
Yashiro: I know, I’m bored too. But it’ll still be a while before we’re ready, especially if many more of the matches are as one-sided as this.
Chris: Well we are the hosts, it is customary for the hosts to wait until the finals before they fight.
In the ring Chang’s eyes roll back in his head as his body is engulfed in Magatama no Orochi from Iori’s Eight Wine Goblets technique. Iori then slams the huge criminal into unconsciousness and leaves the platform without a word as he is announced the winner.
Chris: If you’re really that bored Shermie, maybe you should go down to the arena and find out what that weird lady who fixed the platform is up to.
Shermie: Well, maybe I will...
Yashiro: That’s a good idea. Chris why don’t you go down too and watch Nemo’s “sisters”, they’re probably up to something. I’ll stay and keep an eye on things from up here. That Keiya character's match is up next, it could be interesting.
Chris: *nods* Okay.

Keiya: I must commend you. There are not many in this world, or any other for that matter, who would still come for a match like this. Even knowing the consequences.
Yuri: I'm no coward. And I'm not going to lose to you either. I'll do my ancestors, and my style proud!
Keiya: *Chuckling* I have a feeling you and your ancestors are about to learn a valuable lesson in humility. And an important lesson.
Yuri: What is that?
Keiya: Life, no matter how simple it is, or how easy it may seem, is never a game. Especially the life of a warrior.
Yuri: You think I take my life as a game?! I'll show you! Prepare to fall!
Keiya: We'll see....
The two of them waited for the match to be announced.

She ran forward, one limb cocked back, and struck.....
Yuri: Hyakuretsu Binta!!
Only to meet air as Keiya effortlessly dodged. And retaliated with a blow to the back of the head. Sending her crashing to the ground. And slightly dazed.
Keiya: "Hundred Slaps"? What kind of name is that? For that matter, what was the purpose of it? Do you expect your opponent to simply stand there and let you initiate it on them? Or do you expect that small speed boost it gives to allow you the few extra seconds needed? Hmmm...I wonder what you do when you meet someone still faster.
He watched as she climbed to her feet.
Keiya: Oh, I guess we already know the answer. You fall on your ass.
Yuri: How dare you....
Once again, she jumped at him, hitting with an open-hand, and when that was blocked, turning it into a throw. He flipped in the air, and landed on his feet.
Keiya: Better. But still not good enough.
This time, he disappeared from view, leaving a wary Yuri to search desperately. Only to appear a moment later, his mouth near her ear.
Keiya: Let me show you how it's done.
Before she could turn, a burst of pain exploded in her back, and she crumpled to the ground.
Keiya: Not very pleasant was it? But then, that's typical of the real world. Nothing is pleasant.
She tried to get up, only to be kicked in the head, and launched several feet.
Keiya: But we learn to deal with it.
She shakily climbed to her feet, and assumed her stance.
Keiya: And grow stronger for it.
Yuri snarled, and began concentrating, putting everything she had into one blast. This bastard was too much for her, she knew that already, and they'd only been fighting for about two minutes. Her only hope was to give it her all, and hope he felt it.
And Keiya just stood there, watching as she did so, a sly smile on his face.
Keiya: Are we getting to the end so soon? Pity. I was hoping this could last awhile.
Yuri:*whispering* That's right, just keep on talking. I'm going to shove every last word you say down your throat.
Whether he heard her or not, Keiya's smile grew even wider, showing slight fangs.
Keiya: Then let's do it.
Yuri nodded, then roared the name of her last hope.
The blast exploded from her fingers, and spiraled towards him. Parts of the arena it touched were vaporized, and the air pressure it generated cracked several other sections.
Keiya raised his hand, and muttered one word.
The blast slammed into a red translucent barrier more than a foot away from it's target. Unheeding it's obstruction, the ball tried to move forward, sputtering and crackling. But making no headway whatsoever. Finally, after about ten seconds, it flickered, and died.
And with it, Yuri's chance of winning the match.
Yuri: What was....
Keiya: For the past several years I have been part of a "contest" of sorts. Between myself, and over a dozen other competitors. Each of us fight for different reasons, but the goal remains the same. To gain the right to battle Ihadurca. A being who makes the Orochi of myth look like a damned teddy bear. She's demolished whole civilizations, erased whole peoples from existance.
Keiya paused, then contiuned.
Keiya: Of course, for someone to even be in the tournament, would mean you have to possess enormous amounts of power yourself. You'd need to have enough potential to one day beat her. Otherwise, facing her would be suicide. There are all types of people fighting. An inspector who fights inside a mobile frame, a bounty hunter feared throughout the galaxies, a magician powerful enough to level mountain ranges with a fraction of his power, a 10,000 year old priestess who still looks like a 9 year old girl, and many more. I learned very quickly, that if I was to survive, that I would need to refine myself. Make myself stronger, get rid of unnecessary things. Or else I'd be crushed like a bug.
Keiya gestured with his hand, and the barrier vanished.
Keiya: This is but one of the things I've developed in my time of training. But I'm still not ready, still not ready to face Ihadurca....
He stared at Yuri, a frown appearing.
Keiya: Still not ready to bring Himika back. But everyday is another step closer. Which is why I fight so hard. Which is why I take things so seriously. And which is why I can't allow you to simply walk out of this arena.
A small pentagram appeared beneath Yuri, and glowed for a moment. She cried out as the gravity increased drastically. It took all her power just to keep standing.
Meanwhile, Keiya removed his left hand from his pocket, the first time since the match had started, and joined it with his right. Another pentagram formed, much bigger than the one before it. Streams of magic and ki infused it, strengthened it, helped keep it's shape.
Keiya: Now, the match is ended. Mizukazuro.
As Yuri watched the large beam of energy race towards her, she tried to scream, but only managed a shrill screeching noise.
And then everything went black.

Genma: Don't you think that was just a bit overdone?
Keiya: No. The people here need to understand something. Fighting isn't a game, it's not a sport. It's life and death, do or die. A means to an end. Not something to be gawked at by a bunch of yokels. If they don't like it, then they shouldn't watch.
Genma: Maybe, but still......
Keiya: The girl will be okay, after a month or so. I doubt there's more than a few bones broken. She's stronger than I thought. Her final attack actually equalled up to one of Midori's weaker ones. Besides....
Keiya glanced back over his shoulder.
Keiya: At least I didn't kill her.

Yashiro: Just what kind of people have you invited to this tournament?
Nemo: *dismissive* It’s not a problem. Remember, the more powerful they are, the more powerful we’ll become.
Yashiro: *shakes his head* I still don’t like it.
Nemo: Don’t worry about it. I guarantee you that guy isn’t going to make it past the next round. Just look who he’s fighting.
Yashiro: *smirks* Yagami. But isn’t that just trading one problem for another?
Nemo: Not really. From what I know about Iori, as long as he gets his shot Kyo, he won’t care if the whole world goes down in flames! *giggles*

Genma: Well, at least we can say the tournament has been amusing. Better than doing nothing.
Keiya: I could have spent this time training. Or hunting down the bastard who took Himika's soul in the first place.
Lenneth: I could have been searching for more warriors to become Asgardian servants. We are restructuring afterall.
Genma:Um......well, it's challenging?
Keiya: Sazaki couldn't stand up to a few light taps. Totally unsuitable.
Lenneth: I'm not even participating. My only purpose it to protect the audience. Besides, any one of my Einherjar could have beaten these proud fools back when they were still alive.
Genma: Maybe it'll get better?
Lenneth: Not unless something of extreme power shows up. Right now I'm getting nil on the senses. Save those beings hanging out with the young girl hosting the tournament.
Genma: I have a feeling we'll see some action.
Lenneth: I grow tired of being idle.
Keiya: I have some hope for my next opponent. He's near the level I was at before going to I-Praseru. He should prove...durable.
Genma: You guys are no fun whatsoever.
Lenneth/Keiya: Not what we're here for.

Shermie: Hi there! Mind if I join you?
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 09-30-2002 08:05 PM
Genma: Sure. Whatever floats your boat. We'd be delighted to have you.
Lenneth: If you wish.
The four of them stare off into space for a moment, then Genma turns to their new guest.
Genma:......So.....how does it feel to be the agent of a uber-destructive force? How are the benefits?
Shermie raises a eyebrow, Lenneth rolls her eyes.
Lenneth: Genma, shut up.
Genma: Shutting up.
The four of them go back to silence.

All three: Never mind.
Lenneth: I come from Asgard. Home of the gods.
Keiya: Earth. Japan. The Tenpouin Compound.

After making sure one final time that his daughter will be all right, Takuma heads purposefully toward the platform. Geese arrives a moment later, surrounded by an air of confidence.
Geese: It’s been a long time, *smirk* Mr. Karate.
Takuma: *stone faced* Not nearly long enough Geese.
Geese: Shall we get started old friend?
Takuma nods gruffly, and with no further warning charges at Geese, his body blurring into furious motion with a barrage of punches and kicks. Geese however, retains his smirk, casually dodging and parrying each blow with seeming ease.
Geese: Very good Takuma, I dare say you’re every bit a good as the last time we fought all those years ago. Unfortunately for you, I’ve gotten better since then. *he sidesteps a punch and uses Takuma’s own momentum to throw him to the ground* Much better.
Takuma leaps to his feet with one quick motion and goes in for another punch. Geese tries to throw him again, but he is prepared this time and flips over, landing on his feet and aiming a kick at Geese’s head. Geese manages to block the blow, and back-steps several feet, throwing his Reppuken technique to cover his retreat. A Ko Ou Ken from Takuma blocks the attack, but he lowers his defenses in performing it and is unable to prevent Geese from blurring in front of him, first with a punch to the stomach that knocks the wind out of him, then flipping him all the way over his head and slamming him to the ground.
Geese: What’s the matter old friend? Surely the great “Mr. Karate” can put up a better effort than that.
Takuma: *climbing slowly to his feet* All right then Geese, no more games. Now I’ll show you what the Kyokugen style can truly accomplish!
Geese: *smiles* I’m waiting.
Takuma: Just remember that you asked for this, “old friend”. HAOU SHIKOU KEN!!!
Geese: *knocking aside the huge blast* That didn’t work then, and it’s not going to work now!
The attack proves only to be a feint however, as Geese is suddenly caught off guard by a flying kick to the head. Takuma lands on his feet while his oppenent is staggering backwards and rushes in for his final attack, not noticing as Geese recovers almost instantly and prepares to counter.
Takuma: SHIN KISHIN GEKI!!!
Geese: RAGING STORM!!!
Geese slams both hands to the ground moments before Takuma reaches him with his attack, causing an explosion of blue ki that engulfs the Kyokugen fighter in an instant. Takuma opens his mouth in a silent cry as the energy tears murderously through his body before leaving him suddenly to collapse, a smoking pile on the platform.
Geese: Too easy. *kicking his prone opponent in the gut, who emits a soft moan* I’m very disappointed in you “old friend”, I think perhaps I set my expectations a little too high.
Geese exits the platform, leaving Takuma's family to tend to him.

Nemo: Well, that round went pretty well didn’t it?
Yashiro: Most of the matches were kind of one-sided weren’t they? Except for that first one.
Nemo: They still produced a lot of energy though; anyway the second round should be better. At this rate, we'll probably be ready to go by the end of the third round.
Yashiro: There will be four fighters left then… *nods* That works out well, since there are four of us.
Chris and Shermie suddenly burst in through the door at the same time.
Chris and Shermie: There’s something really strange going on here!
Spokesman: *from down below* Next match, Genma the Destroyer vs. Mai Shiranui!
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 10-01-2002 01:15 PM
Genma: *Mumbling* Kami must hate me.
"Most guys wouldn't complain."
Genma: What the....oh, I get it. I didn't know the KoF took place in the DBZ universe as well.
"Not the one you know of. Roshi isn't due to be born here for another 100 years."
Genma: That explains why I haven't seen any saiyans beating the hell out of the contestants.
"Nevermind that now, you've got a match to attend to."
He notices that Mai, along with everyone else, is looking at his wierdly.

Eve: Now to find out who you guys are and shut you down .
Yume : No.... I don't think we can have that ....
*Eve spun to face a glowing computer representation of the the childlike woman genius and is suddenly struck by a strange beam .*
Yume : Well well ...... He said you would show up at exactly this point . And he was only off by .01295 seconds .
Eve: Who .....are you ? What..... are.... you doing ... to me ?
Yume : Who I am isn't important . As to what am I doing ... I'm scanning your basic progamming makeup and copying it to a backup .... I tweak it a bit later .... he says he'll need it .... there all done ! But I can not allow you to stay so bye bye !!
Eve : Nooooooooooo......
* She felt herself being pushed by an unknown force .... and is through cyberspace out of the network . She found herself back in the Wedge systems .... when she tried to go back she found herself blocked by powerful new protections even she was having trouble breaking through . Sighing in defeat she heads back to make her report . *
*On the Bridge of the SDF-27 Yume removes her hacking cap ... Hishima and Tolwyn are standing next to her ... several mercs are standing over work crew hostages . *
Yume : All done... now I just have to get thetransdeminsional drive system calibrated and operational and we are ready to go .. how is the battle going ?
Tolwyn : Well ... Half of the Tekka forces are keeping thoses other ships at bay while the other half is heavily engaged with that woman ... we took a few losses there . The ship is mainly secure with a few pockets of resistance .... but our forces are suppressing them ... no new boarders have been able to get on board ..
Yume : Of course not with my patented jammers online ... Where is Jacob ?
Hishima : He says he is headed for his main objective... He could not directly portal there since it's on another plane of existance due to the Burrroughs Irrevelancy drives that form space fields inside this ship making it bigger inside than outside .... apparrently they formed a special field around the room he wants .. so he is forced to walk there ..... unforunately that is in an area of the ship we don't have full control of yet .
Yume : I see ...
* in another part of the ship Jacob walked down a long corrider . Several guards ran toward him raising their weapons and started firing ... He smiled letting the blasts warp around him ..... he chuckled as they switched to projectiles as he walked toward them . *
WDF guard 1 : God. What is he ?!!!
WDF commander : Just keep firing ..... ! Abrams ! He's headed for the room! he must not get his hands on it ..get to the door and get ready to press the destruct button !
WDF Abrams : Yessir !
*while one guard dashes down the corrider Jacob reaches the first guard and sends him flying with a spinning backfist . The next guard lunges , Jacob grabbed his hand pulling him forward slightly sending a kick into his head crossing the leg over the arm then pulled it back smashing him to the ground . The third guard fights smarter trying a combonation that ends with a kick . Jacob blocks it then laughed sending a fist into his gut , lifting him up over his head and slamming him back down with a hard crash ... The commander was the last standing . He drew his knife and called back ::
WDF commander : Abrams ! Destroy the room !
* With that he slashed at Jacob only to have his caught. Jacob reached forward and grabbed the back of his head pulling it around him before slamming it into the wall , he then tossed out a bolt of force killing Abrams just as he reached the button . His path clear he walked to the door and punched in a code ... it opened letting him enter .. He smiled darkly ,his eyes ice cold as they gazed upon his true prize *

Yume : * snickering * Look at you ! Like a kid in a candy store !
Tolwyn : * blushing a bit * Its.... a fine ship .....Master Jacob choose well .
Yume : Yes ....though I wonder why ?
Tolwyn : Eh ?
Yume : This ship certainly is impressive . But nothing he could not have had built himself .... It makes me wonder ..... why go through the trouble of stealling it .....?
Tolwyn : *shrugs * who knows ... I rarely question Master Jacob's ways ....
Yume : I noticed that .... why do you serve hime so ? IS it completely because of Mindsword?
Tolwyn : Yes there is that .... and also because ..... he saved me from a bad end ..... a end of dishonor ..... and gave me a chance to find a more honorable one .... I think he is looking for the same ...thus he understands me ... I thank him for that ...
Yume : I see ...
*the intercom beeps *
Jacob : Yume . Are we ready to go ?
Yume : Yes sir we leave in about a minute ...
Jacob :Good lock onto our Tekkaforces both live and dead .....and beam them aboard just before the shift .... leave no one behind understand ?
Yume : Understood .... Yume out .... * shuts down the intercom and begins preparations *

So... who's the ghostly Trio you were talking to??
I'm pretty sure, plotting to retake the C&C verse violates some of you agreement with CBY right??
The Body guard thing, though, that I at least slightly approve of. Would have been better if you'd kept her out of the tpurney if you wanted her to survive... But, It's not my place to judge...
Now answer my question if you would?
SO I was asking who the three Corlione wannabe's you were talking to are...

The question was asked again and again but no answer could he hear, only the howl of the wind and the beating of rain atop the shack could be heard. Inside the flickering of a small wax candle spead shadow's across the walls They danced around the small shape in the corner, as if in quiet worship. Once more the figure looked up towards the window and asked...
Who am I.......? Why am I here?
By the Gods!! I ask one simple question but it seem the answer is forever keep from me!
The figure lifted itself off the cold floor and stared out the window, unable to bring himself to sleeping. Perhaps in the next place he ventured somebody would know him, somebody would greet him with open arms, somebody would finally answer his question. But he knew one thing......the answer was not here.
He had been traveling around for years sence he first lost his memory. Hoping that the next place he went to would have the answers he seeked. But untold time has pasted sence his journey began and still he wanders......alone......without a beginning and without an end. Just hoping that maybe......in the next town.........somebody would remember him........
