With Tangeri following her student's moves, she stood up straight to her full height, glowering down at the pathetic excuse for a man that had decided to raid such a wonderful home filled with such wonderful memories. Taking a deep breath, the giant Tangeri's eyes faded out. Ghostly trails of energy emanating from them. As she once again began moving sequentially, powerfully with purpose. A strong tribal dance led by the apparitions of warriors passed, accompanied by the passionate chanting of an ancient war dance.
The apparitions one by one began to fade, pooling into Tangeri's left hand. She had never asked for much since arriving on Earth, just to make a few friends. And here she was, suffice to say "relatively rustled." Putting all she had into one final punch towards the back of whom she hoped to be the one behind this all, Tangeri spoke with unusual clarity despite her current berserking state.
She threw the humid punch forward, as scorching as a hot island's day. The "spirits" themselves seemingly bellowing out in laughter with the fist connecting.
It was a single moment impact as everything had turned into a brilliant colour flash as most of the ripples that came from the man his body as he was turned to stone caused damage to almost every person that stood nearby, a small symbol becoming apparant on these mooks as their equipment was dropped from their hands. The actual guards from the mansion starting to dash inwards as they started to frisk most of the opponents that had turned to stone before starting to carry them away, knowing at this point that if these fuckers were evil, they would have lost ages ago. They would have been dragged across the ground and turned into a fine mush.
Yet they were still alive, They were still kicking and moving.
Silver stood there, his large body having shrunk as the pain was immense, every pore of his body dripping blood onto the ground as he could feel the fur slowly sinking away as his clothes formed around his body, neatly closing in on himself as the red stained ribbons had caged him in a restriction where he had no chance, where he had nothing to protect himself as he would take a soft breath, his lips seperating slightly as he would feel the cold breath of the night air burning his punctured lungs as he would have a few raspy exhales and gasps.
He could see the berserking figure having shrunk down in the distance, everything seeming so much further away as it had a grey tone to it all, his mouth raspily trying to get back from where the mind was pulling himself as he could feel a certain warmth from his back, nothing touching it as he would feel something taking him away, something trying to take him away into another area... Somewhere different as he would have his willpower slowly sapped from his body as he could look back at the events of what had happened today as he would try to raise his hand before he slumped down onto one of the walls that was capable of carrying his weight, his small tail not moving anymore as he almost closed his eyes, one of them unable to see from the amount of damage that he had taken while another could only see grey as blood was pooling down onto the floor. Energy being drained as his natural instincts were getting dulled and dulled, the energies he had used before to try and recover himself became something that was completely drained as he would try to move his body at all before exhaling.
Something was beating inside of his exhausted body, taking his stamina, taking his energy, something was beating as he would feel his body slowly grow hotter once again, the cold touch that was caressing him being torn away as he would feel something change within himself. He would feel his lungs clawing to get outside of his own body, he felt his muscles burning, he felt everything hurting, he felt everything break down as his mind almost snapped.
But he didn't snap, this child that was trying to lay to rest and give peace to his own body would suddenly feel everything swing back towards himself, he would feel the inability to rest, he would feel the inability to close his eyes, he felt everything starting to claw away at his own being as he violently threw up onto the ground. Small chunks of meat and metal ending up in a pool on the ground as tears streamed down his face, unable to correctly assume what was going through his mind, he just tried to scream, only to be blocked out by yet another surge of blood that came out of his mouth, he lungs taking in the fresh air as they pumped violently. It was at this point that the beating intensified as he would feel his body correcting itself.
The silence of his own ears, the deaf nature for having been so close to active weapons with their loud gunpowder explosions and energy releases harming his eardrums. That was all gone as he could hear violently snapping in his own body, a broken leg being forcibly stuck back together as he saw that his own hand was balled into a fist as the energies were surging through his own body. Something forcing him to keep this going as he was forced against the ground, laying in a pool of his own blood nearly passing out as his bloodshot eyes looked towards the people that were doing their jobs, the people that he had so close to his heart and the people that he risked his life for as he would then gaze towards the thing that stood inbetween this all.
A form that was only visible to Tangeri as it stood there, untouched by the blood that had pooled onto the broken floor. Floating above the shattered pieces in a white dress as the hat that protected her from the sun was covering most of the facial features except for a long flowing beauty that was her hair, glittering in a multitude of colours as she would turn around. While beautifull at first glance from the other perspectives, it was at this point that Tangeri would see the woman without a facial expression, vague shadows colouring in where eyes were and a mouth as they constantly moved like an unstable existance before the mouth opened speaking a few words.
These words were enough for a splurt of blood to exit from her ears, her eardrums having almost instantly destroyed themselves upon hearing these words before something recovered them. Yet it wasn't the pain that was the most obvious, instead it was something else as the figure had spoken with a content smile "You have been invited to the hall of the eidolons child." as she vanished at the same time before a sorrow filled look was given to the small child, a split second vision of a reaper visible, the blade pulling away from the neck of the child.
Seeing their mentor and potential crush stand once again through all of this, the twins continued to panic and fluster. Not only was he slowly dying in front of them, his friend was seemingly having some kind of... Astral projection? Revelation? Either way she was no help. It was at this point they had caught a glimpse of a diminutive, injured man in a black trench coat and a skull mask. Currently in a "knife fight" with one of the group's presumed admins a short distance away from the two other combatants. "HEY, FOX BOY." He yelled, "YOUR FRIEND'S A GOOD KID. YOU GONNA LEAVE 'ER ALONE LIKE THAT!?" He continued, presumably only able to see the dead and dying due to his lack of magical understanding.
"AND YOU TWO, HEY. WEDNESDAY AND PUGSLEY. YOU GUYS FOLLOW THAT MAGIC SHIT RIGHT? USE IT." He roared, delivering a final stab into the admin he was fighting, gently lowering him down and placing his ring finger and thumb, and index finger and pinkie together and placing them over his eyes, with his middle finger marking the middle of his forehead. Seemingly some form of honour-bound wish for luck in the afterlife. "No matter who we are, we're all hunks of meat in death. So make it right." He said, placing a hand on his dislocated shoulder and popping it back in.
Be it inspiration, fear or confusion from what they had just witnessed. Shiro and Yuki nodded slowly, trying hard to tap into these "powers" that Silver had given them. Willing all they had into healing him.
With Tangeri's exhausted body beginning to crumple beneath its own weight, the young tropical oozaru fell to the grown with a crash, her body shrinking back to normal size and excess hair receding back into her body. Struck with an immense draining feeling, Tangeri tried to crawl over to where her friend was, or rather ,where she thought he was. Her currently blurred vision did make this quite hard, it wasn't until her crawl was stopped by the (admittedly rather shapely) legs of a pale-skinned woman in a white dress, it was... Confusing how she seemed to both defy all forms of conventional gravity, and spoke fluent native Tropic. To which Tangeri tried to wheeze in response, in kind. Her words of the Eidolons were not to be taken lightly after all.
"I... See... Is it my time...?" She asked, speaking in her native tongue herself, before yelping out in pain as her ears started to stream blood, leaving her unable to hear and cowering on the floor. Slowly restoring back to normal with the aid of the healing field.
It was at this point that Silver, Tangeri, Shiro, Yuki and Jack rose up from the ground, magical energy starting to spread heavy. As heavy as a whallop of cream ontop of the delicious treat of hot cocoa, Silver being the first as his wounds were being healed before a pink frilly dress was formed around him and he was put on his feet with a small pose as he seemed perfectly fine by the energy that was released by the two that were trying so hard.
For Tangeri, she would have gotten one of those business suit magical girl outfits, resembling something rather beautifull if looked at from the side with some gaps around the thighs.
Shiro and Yuki would have a suit that seemingly matched each other, the sides mingling in colours as their outfits were red and blue to corrospond with a belt that had a gimmick that said "LEVEL" And then cut out with a strange censoring noise. As if something was striking it down with the hammer of copyrights, before the biggest change happened.
A certain man called Jack in his suit who was forced to rise from his feet as his outfit returned to a dormant state as he was given a frilly bikini that covered little, a dude dressed almost entirely like some kind of magical girl fan bait that was supposed to be made for degenerates, but here he is with his behind in full view. Hell, Even his weapon is a large heart shaped mace that allows him to see through the hearts of villains... In the flavour text, but sadly it didn't do anything but hit really hard.
It was at this point that a problem had risen up, Nobody here wanted to be seen by the gaurds that would be coming back, They would never let them live this down. These outfits were shamefull and strange...! But who would go where? There are five rooms in total...!
"Holy FUCK this is some emotional whiplash" Said Yuki, looking at her sudden change in outfit, "Alright, headcount. Is everyone alright?" She asked, looking over everyone to see if they were hurt or not. "Oh, that's cute..." She mused, looking down at Silver's frilly pink clothing, made complete by his apparent desire to pose.
"Aaaand that's incredibly disturbing." Said Yuki, her eyes drifting to the masked man by the name of Jack. With his... Unusually muscular body adorned by the skimpy fabric. "Shut the fuck up, you know I look good." He said, flexing his glutes with an audible "Snap". "GOOD LORD MAN PLEASE" She yelled, covering her sister's eyes in order to preserve some form of innocence.
"Hey, friends. People are coming." Said Tangeri, listening out and picking up the sounds of footsteps. With the group frantically looking for a place to go, until... "SMOKE BOMB" Cried Jack, tossing down a grenade that filled the corridor with smoke "WHERE WERE YOU EVEN KEEPING THAT!?" Yelled Yuki, "When you've been around as long as I have, you learn a few hiding places..." He grumbled. "GROSS, MOVE" Cried Yuki, each person scrambling to a room under cover.
Tangeri with Silver Shiro with Yuki And Jack by himself
As Silver was snuck into the room with Tangeri, he would start to look around before using his small manifested cane to make his own clothes re-appear instead of the outfit that was made. Simply gauging what was happening, he would then breathe out carefully as he saw that a few more issues had risen up as a small figure stood in the distance.
"You see that out of the window? We are sneaking out, we can apologise later." He would say as he put a letter on the bed before seeing a long line of destruction in the yard as he could not help but imagine the amount of costs that had appeared at this point as his mouth would open before closing painfully. Knowing full well that there was no reason to take it as easy as he should before then saying to Tangeri. "You remind me of an old friend y'know, somebody i met in the past..." before then preparing his tired body.
It was at this point fully known that nothing could revitalize these two idiots as he would guide her towards a small hill that was nearby as a man dressed in a suit stood there, leaning on a cane as he would have a mask on his face. His mouth forming a soft smile as his eyes were covered by a mask.
"Hello." his gentle voice would proclaim as he swung his cane around, almost falling over before catching himself in a nice leaning position with his cane from his lowered posture. "I am here to capture some beautifull animals and end up making a beautifull circus~"
Yet, There was a certain edge to his words, something only a saiyan would realize, it was the voice of somebody who was willing to kill as he took out two long chains with chokers on them.
"Well, Who would have known that they would come to me?" He spoke as Silver then realized what would happen as he turned around at a near instant before the two chokers and chains would be launched forwards... The chokers themselves filled with enough medicine to knock out an oozaru as the little guy called Silver would fall unconscious on the ground, sliding.
This impossibly moving fast object attempting to strike Tangeri in the neck to grab her too! Would she even be able to resist!?
Slightly confused by Silver's comment about being similar to a friend that he had met once before, Tangeri gave a small shrug. Tangeri was Tangeri, and this other friend was this other friend. While she was a little concerned for the others they had met along the way, she soon agreed that it was probably for the best. They had caused a lot of trouble here. And yet... What about Stephen? He was still outside! Likely protected by a circle of automatic turrets or something judging by how Jack acted, and why he was away for so long. These thoughts were interrupted however, by the sudden presence of a rather... Out of place ring master? There was clearly something off about the mysteriously clad man, something clearly not human.
Her suspicions were confirmed upon the man throwing a collar with chains at herself and Silver. Fortunately, Tangeri had been eating a banana at the time. And dropped the peel in shock, slipping over on it and avoiding the attack. Only to have the collar land onto her head with a strong thud, knocking her out.
Such a scene would surely create a significant amount of laughter in anyone looking on.
Laughter, this was the last thing that Tangeri had heard as she would wake up in a small cage, a metal choker on her own neck as a small clapping sound was heard from the outside where light was shining through. A small creature being forced to perform acts in the public as he was told to jump through burning hoops with his small vulpine body as he was forced to sit on a bucket and then even take a few blows from a few attacks as you noticed that it wasn't close to night anymore from one of the gaps in the tent as Silver was being dragged back in.
The entire area in the back smelling like animal feces and even more, if they were to pay attention to the scents as Silver was laying on the bottom of his cage with his breath taken heavily. Panting as his chest heaves heavily, the little guy could only lay on his back as he had small droplets of sweat running down his face as he could see Tangeri, causing his face to form a smile.
"We have been stuck here for... Well, You have been asleep for three days if that explains what is going on." He would then try to stretch a little while laying on his back, only causing his body to tense up.
"They are planning to use us for a few more months, if we do not escape... Right now we share an open area with some animals and this wolf zoan who just silently sits in the corner..." He would point towards the zoan who was not even in a cage, but was wearing a collar with blank eyes. Happily humming the tune of the circus that was busy in the outside as Three elephants started levitating in the acting area, having an airborne battle.
Waking up in a daze, the sleepy Tangeri looked around the cage. Seeing that they were in fact in a circus of some sort, she sat up. Watching her small friend "perform" for the masses. "Eh, three? No wonder I feel so rested..." Said Tangeri, thinking softly about the words of her friend as he returned. Watching him pant and sweat, it must be hard being both a man and a dog... Both sweating AND panting! But regardless, Tangeri gave a firm nod and stood up. "Alright, koa! Tangeri has a plan!" She said, suddenly becoming... Strangely defined as she suddenly shifted into her oozaru form, crossing her arms. "I will break this cage!" She announced, noticing a strangely convenient performing wrestler's mask just outside the cage. Gripping two bars firmly, she let out a mighty roar. Using all of her might to pull them apart and stepping out with them and grabbing the mask. "You know how to operate the shinylights, yes?" She asked, putting the mask on over her beastial face, tearing the mask's fabric slightly. But covering her face regardless.
"This man likes shows, yes? We will give him one!" Tapping her ear to show that she had hidden the communicator in her oozaru form's ear tufts. "I will give signal, and you shine lights on rafters. Okay?" She said, grinning
As Silver saw this silly show of her breaking out of the cage, he could not help but feel a little bit conflicted on the fact that this went that easily for her to break out. His mouth slowly closing as he tried to think about the fact that everything was collapsing down into the abyss known as the floor, Silver his ears tensing painfully as some of the bars were clanging awkwardly yet not heard by those outside.
The elephants still battling rather furiously as he would then look around to the cage that he was stuck in, Frowning lightly as he would speak with a dejected tone. "I am not able to work the lights without having a little boost to get out of this cage, i need to be able to break out of this thing before they would come back."
Proposing this, he would look at a small item he held in his own pocket, clicking it open as the small locket had an image Tangeri could not see before he would close it and put it over his own neck, as if preparing for something as he spoke a soft prayer in a langauge she could not understand.
"Oh god, alsjeblieft geef me een kans om deze idioot te redden." He would speak, before then saying a soft 'Amen' as he would prepare himself for whatever idiotic thing the woman would do to get out of here.
Laughing at her friend and his sudden gibberish, at least to Tangeri's ears. The young oozaru crouched down and grabbed the bars to the little fox's cage. "Worry not friend! The spirits have no interest in you yet!" She said, grunting as she pulled away at the bars. It was... An unorthodox way of trying to calm her friend down, but she felt as if she got the message across. Somehow... Maybe? Probably.
But regardless, with her friend freed, Tangeri gave a grin and a salute. Rushing off to climb the rafters in the darkness of the circus tent's upper layer. What were rafters if not metal trees after all? Going through her plan in her head one more time, Tangeri put a finger to her ear. "We are going to be waiting for the circus man to move to the center of the ring, okay friend?" She said, keeping low and a close eye on the state of the circus. Taking care not to be spotted by anyone, yet.
With squinted eyes of confusion and being unable to comprehend what this woman was trying to bring across, as she was even confused about her own statement as she just opened the bars with her own hands. The little derpy fox had his facial expression remind them of something that was once seen in the far past, something that was being rather interesting... Or dissapointing.
As the rafters were being climbed into the darkness, the tree connection being made as a few flowers were there before Silver then heard something being told to himself as he was snapped out of it, running towards the light controlls himself from what he understood on what he had to do.
And so, the circus man made his way to the middle of the ring, as they had waited long enough for their plan, Silver sweating uncomfortably with the canine person breathing down on his neck being uncomfortably close. His eyes trying to keep up their concentration as he would awkwardly fiddle his thumbs a little to distract him, the scent of bacon and dog breath being rather intense.
With the demonic ringmaster in the centre of the ring, Tangeri stood to her feet and placed her hands on her hips. Laughing heroically as the spotlights shone onto the masked lemur. With all eyes on her, she pointed at the man dramatically. Disguising her voice to the best of her ability, making it sound much deeper and more gruff. "YOU THERE, TINY MAN!" She bellowed.
"I CHALLENGE YOU!" Said Tangeri, leaping down from the rafters and causing the ground to shake beneath her impact. "ONE ON ONE, IF I WIN YOU CLOSE THIS CIRCUS AND SET ALL YOUR ATTRACTIONS FREE"
"ME VERSUS YOU, NO TRICKS, UNDERSTAND?" She asked, doing her best "berserker" speech with her hidden identity. Challenging the ring master directly
Realizing that she wanted to challenge the man, The man who was being chanted for called Kobal would move forwards as he said "alrighty, it seems that i have been challenged by an audience member! Somebody capable of defeating the good little entertainment bringer and take away the smiles of children, right?" As he would spread his arms before then stepping forwards to intimidate the girl that was trying to make this all seem scary.
"Shall we then?" As he took his shirt off, showing a business suit before voicing a soft 'oh whoops' before then tearing it off to reveal a large, bulky masculine body as he smiled powerfully. He knew quite certainly what he could do as Tangeri would hear a known before ninja whisper a few words of inspiration into her ears as Silver was busy aiming his lights around. Making certain to keep everything lit and nicely as the crowd started to freak out quietly, nobody cheering out loud as they wanted to figure out who was going to win, they wanted more information.
They especially wanted to know the main thing that would be going to be the most exciting thing... Was the circus actually going to shut down?
Grinning to herself as the man suddenly bulked up before her, Tangeri simply let out a bellowing laugh. Getting a little... Too into her persona. Pointing dramatically at the muscular man , "THE MASKED COCONUT name in progress HAS JUST ONE THING TO SAY TO YOU TINY MAN..." Said Tangeri, riling up the audience suitably before the fight began proper. She knew she didn't have much of a chance...
Had it not been for her mischievous ninja friend doing some snooping behind the scenes, and having a particular fondness for being the "straight man" in a comedy duo, as well as the use of prop comedy. With the audience suitably at the edge of their respective seats, Tangeri crossed her arms.
She spoke, having a feeling that a man such as himself couldn't deny the setup for a joke, regardless of the situation.
