     "Are you that starved for affection that something as simple as hand-holding amuses you?" Ayaka taunted, a single eyebrow was raised and her arms were crossed. Whatever the reason it's not like she had any right to be saying so either...though something as simple as that was silly. "Perhaps you should leave your cave more, Iron."

     Letting out a sigh, Ayaka darted her view about wondering what would be good to pass the time. Perhaps the two were on a date, but now that she was here she might as well entertain herself. Several passers-by caught the girl's attention, not particularly because they were of any importance, but because some of them carried the same doll as she did. Small, cuddly, and something she wouldn't be caught dead with in public, Ayaka moved her inconspicuously conspicuous bag out of view once more and coughed to draw the attention of her friends.

     A drink, maybe that's what she needed. Something to quench her thirst and perhaps a meal as well. That's what normal kids her age did anyways during outings, wasn't it? "Is there anywhere I could get a glass of water? I don't come here a lot and I am feeling quite hungry."

"Huh." Noir had a slightly confused look shot in his direction when he lifted his hand, but thankfully he hadn't really come close to touching her. It was odd, but he wasn't exactly normal to begin with. Initially, Lyssa didn't think much of his response. As she sat on her bed and began to tear into the first burrito, however, she had some extra time to ponder his situation. It was one that was, in many ways, unimaginable. What was a world without color? Most names on Remnant would lose their meaning. One could have color described to them, but words could never express the entire visible spectrum of light. In her eyes, a life like that would be bleak, monotone... and exceptionally boring. The same could be said about living a life lacking any of one's senses, but he had to deal with a half-baked version, and it didn't sound like it would be all that much better than being truly blind. Just enough to be able to fight, but not enough to be able to see what you're protecting…

'... Wow, this tastes really fucking good,' Lyssa's thoughts trailed off as she continued biting into the burrito. All the ingredients came together amazingly, the meal containing an almost perfect ratio of everything inside. He may have been blind, but he sure as hell could still taste just fine. She couldn't help but acknowledge it to herself as she ate, continuing to remain silent while trying to recall what she had been pondering a moment ago.

Oh, right. He is blind.

"Uhm… That's rough, buddy," she finally spoke up, having had a full mouth for quite some time up until then. The girl lightly waved the partially-destroyed burrito in his direction as she went on to make her point. "But if that's the full extent of what you can see, then that means you're a certified badass if you've gotten this far." Rarely would she openly praise anyone that much, but it was hard for her to be her usual cold and dismissive self when he was happily providing her with some of the best food that she had eaten in a long while. It definitely beat the stuff from the cafeteria, no doubt about it.

"Good-ass food, by the way." It wasn't exactly a thank-you, but it was the closest thing he had gotten out of her in the short time that they had been teammates.

"Well I don't know about grenades but I have these." Akel said, taking one of the small tags and placing it on the table "These are designed to bring two or more together but can also be used to bring two apart, my father uses these for disarming opponents and pulling them out of their preferred combat area. Bring a close combat fighter out of their sword range, a gunslinger into punching range, that type of deal. Do you think you could modify them to release a downward force?" Akel explained, looking at the cylinder before getting an idea for a later project.

"Eh?" she stops her rambling for a moment as she processes what Akel said.  Only fire and lightning?  "Only those?  I suppose they're the easiest to use, but that seems so limiting," she says honestly.  "It's your decision in the end, though."

She takes a moment to ponder Akel's question on gravity dust.  In short, yes, its possible.  Clara's mind immediately drifts to the pack of cards in her pocket.  There was definitely one person who used dust like that.  That being said...

"There is a way, but if you want a continuous effect, you have to have a way to apply the dust over the entire duration," she begins, the cadence of her voice slowing down as she works through technical details, "The easiest way to do that would be with an appropriate semblance, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you don't have that kind of luck.  In that case, you'd need a device to meter out the dust to make sure it doesn't all activate in one go, and then you'd need to get it to your target.  A bullet's probably too small, you'd at least need something like a taser.    A mine could work, but that would imply you had time to set it up before hand, which isn't necessarily something you could rely on in the field.  Maybe something like a grenade could work?  If you give it a bit of adhesive so it sticks, you wouldn't have to worry about it kicking it away."

"As far as delays, the most obvious solutions would be mines and grenades, which should be pretty easy to implement in theory," she pauses here, hand on her chin as she goes deep into thought, muttering to herself in technical jargon.

I worded the aura dropping thing poorly, he would only drop it against things he knows won't destroy his gauntlets or arms, smaller melee weapons or small arms fire. It comes with the cost of his gauntlets actually needing constant repairs and checkups and actually having a realistic chance of breaking or malfunctioning if he takes big hits with no aura.
As Camelia was about to start itching for action, a blue flicker appeared on the edge of the forest, lodged itself in a tree a few meters deep and vanished.

Okay, whatever the FUCK that'd been, at least she was safe. What would she do now, however? She could use Orion to attack a certain range, but unless she just made a wall of ice with trees stuck through it, it'd be a somewhat moot point. Sure, her semblance had a longer range, but she couldn't see the guy any better.

First and foremost, she was a close quarters combatant. Her shield and swords were a good indication, as she could turtle most ranged attacks until their opponent was in striking distance - or until she lost patience and decided to get closer herself. So far, so good - they seemed to be getting closer. Camelia adjusted her footing and refocused on her environment, not intending to be caught by surprise at any point.

After a short lack of reactions she could hear, Anna heard the girl turn and walk back to the center of the room, at which point she asked Anna to shut the door - which, after a brief 'oh, right, duh' reaction, she promptly did. Once done, Anna turned back to the lass' last known position and turned on her semblance at full power.

It started by a hand clap, rather loud. The girl quickly held onto something - most people wouldn't be able to see it, but Anna did. Within the bounds outlined by the girl's hands was a jumble of resonating sound, strengthening itself as every moment passed. And even as it did, the sounds around it gradually faded into nothingness, the pressure waves themselves dissolving before travelling but a few centimetres away. As the noise echoed in its ethereal cage, the girl's Aura started showing, a pale, barely-perceptible grey that surrounded her completely. ...Well, actually, not quite, from what Anna could see. Why was that?

Her train of thought was cut short as the once-upon-a-time clap was let loose, bursting forth into targets which were sent flying from the sheer impact.

Anna stood, wide-eyed and hair ruffled from the shockwave's reflections against the walls.
Isabelle likes classical. Piano concertos especially.

Lyssa is a metalhead, that genre takes up most of her playlists regardless of mood. She might listen to some less heavy rock as well, but she won't really seek it out just to calm down. She does sometimes play her own guitar to relax, and usually plays something more relaxing with a lower tempo.

Vivian: 24/7 lofi hip hop beats to relax and study to. She also listens to a lot of rap, if it's "chill" enough.

Cassidy is big on anything slow and quiet with primarily string instruments. Acoustic guitar, violin, cello, etc.

"That sounds like a plan, but for a higher chance of success we'd need to attack during the night. Personally I can work in complete darkness but how would you work, we would still have the moonlight but I don't know how much that'll help since we will be in the wild and depending on where we are and out enemies, it'll make it a lot harder to fight, for you. Since you aren't a faunus... no offense." Akel explained in thought, taking some of the presented food and ate some of it, looking at Calen as she thought about how thin he would be underneath his clothing.

"uhhh... okay, Clara. I think utilising the fire and lightning dust would be the best option for me. I'll stay away from the rest for now... hmm, actually, would it be possible to use gravity dust to give a lingering effect of increased gravity?" Akel wondered, posing the question to the dust crazed student as she looked at all the other vials on the table.

"Any other unique ideas for dust that you can think of? Maybe someway to give dust a delay, I think I could use the delay to give myself some space and also use more dust for more damage."
