Everywhere Else / Re: Preparing for the Coming Storm, Team Two
« on: April 19, 2018, 12:58:44 PM »
Sounds like a simple "search and destroy" mission, Smokey thought to himself as he finished loading Matchstick and rested the gun on his shoulder.  Given the wide variety of missions being doled out here, he should consider himself lucky that there weren't more complicated instructions.  That being said, this wouldn't be easy.  The "terrorists" have already embedded themselves in preparation for ambush, and it'd be very easy for the group to fall into a trap.  Given that Smokey doesn't exactly have a "quiet mode," that goes doubly so for him.

He let out a sigh.  "Nothin' to do except deal with it, I guess," he muttered before turning to the woman before him.  "Yeah, I have two questions, although I'm pretty sure I know the answer to at least one of 'em.  Number one, is there anything else you can tell us about the prototypes' capabilities or weapons?  And number two, the way you're talking about 'no delays' makes it seem like there's a time limit.  Any chance we can get an ETA?" 

Considering how these training missions normally work, he doubted he'd get an answer to either of his questions, but he loses nothing by asking.

So, apparently Nami got approved, is everyone still alright with this team?

Smokey looked at Celeste and did a quick up-down.  Kisha blurted out everything Smokey was thinking, already.  No major detective work needed on this one. 

"I'll take option number one as well," Smokey stated.

Smokey furrowed his brow slightly.  He thought it would've been harder for them.  "Sorry, Sand, but if my semblance did anything to my weight, it would actually make me lighter.  That's not all it does, mind you, more like a side effect," he explained.  "The truth is that I'm actually from Mantle."

"I guess that means you're up next," he looked at Celeste, expectantly.

"Wait, what?" Smokey started, "Me? But--ah, whatever." Smokey contemplated for a moment.

"Alright, first, I'm from Mantle.  Second, my father's a tailor.  He's actually the on that made my coat." Smokey paused for a moment to direct attention to his clothing before continuing.  "And lastly, my semblance makes me really heavy."

Smokey finished by resting his hands behind his head and leaning back against the tree, awaiting his acquaintances' response.

Smokey took a few seconds to contemplate the stories.  He was pretty sure he knew which one was the truth as soon as he heard it, but there wasn't any harm in thinking things through.  Acting on impulse got him in trouble more often than not.

The first story's almost definitely false.  Big, scary monsters bent on the destruction of humanity?  Sure, let's bring them into the city for public viewing, that can't possibly go wrong.  It's not like Huntsmen and Huntresses have anything better to do besides babysit a bunch of gawkers. Smokey mentally crossed that story off the list

That leaves the second and third story.  They're both more realistic than the first one, but the third one had a few inconsistencies. Why did the property owner take so long to find the other kids?  Did any of them have scrolls?  It just felt like if Smokey changed one detail, that story falls apart completely.  And going by that logic, the only option is....

"I'll say the second story," Smokey sighed.

"I'm not angry!" Smokey snapped, then he immediately realized he snapped and promptly snapped his mouth shut.  He took another deep breath, before calmly asserting, "I'm not angry.  And as I said before, I was trying to get some conditioning in, hence why I'm wearing all this armor.  Don't you realize how long its been since we've had good weather like this?"

He turned to look at Kisha, who had swung up on another branch and made the suggestion to play a game.  Smokey sighed, it looked like he was stuck here for the time being.  He'll get training in some other time.  "Sure, why not?" he said resignedly as he shifted his weight to a more comfortable position.

Smokey opened his mouth to snap at the girls, but quickly shut his mouth.  He took a long slow breath to collect his composure.  These people aren't trying to provoke him, they're trying to get him to relax.  They're doing terribly, but they're trying.  He took another breath and pinched his brow before finally speaking up.

"Alright, first of all, I told you my name. It's Smokey.  You call me Mr. Grumpy again, I might shoot something," he threatened, gesturing to his revolver.  It was a bluff, he didn't actually have any live ammo on him, instead simulating the weight with a few sand bags under his coat.  Carrying around that much dust and ammunition for mere physical training was pointless and basically just asking to lose it.  But dammit, people should stop calling him grumpy!  It's only gonna make him grumpier. 

He turned his attention to the winged girl who'd been, as far as Smokey was concerned, making fun of him since she laid eyes on him.  "Second, since you've finally got me up in this tree, you mind telling me your name?"  He looked at the other man, who had secured himself to the tree.  "You, too, I guess."

"...Wha...?" Smokey sat, stunned, in the tree.  He fell, but he's in a tree.  ...Did he just fall up?  Did gravity glitch?  It wasn't until Kisha jumped through the portal that he understood what actually happened.

'Stupid mobility semblances' grumbled Smokey once again.  Sure, climbing a tree is a cinch when you can just fly or open portals, but isn't that cheating?  What about those of us who don't get the ability to defy gravity, huh? 

And as if on cue, a newcomer walks up, some sort of dog faunus, and proceeds to use a grappling hook to latch himself to the tree with the rest of the group.  "That's cheating, too," Smokey said dejectedly.  He tried to think of a way to shake the three others out of the tree, but he was out of luck.  One can fly, one can just hop through portals, and the other is secured by a mechanical device. 

Left with no options, Smokey crossed his arms and sat in the tree with sour look on his face.

'I'm gonna figure this out, darn it' Smokey grumbled under his breath.  He just couldn't seem to get enough grip on the tree to hold him up, and it was starting to frustrate him.  It didn't help that two girls were giggling at him.  Honestly, he probably should leave before his frustrations got the better of him, and he was about to get up and walk off when one of the girls, the one with the hoodie, dropped right in front of him and grabbed his hands in an attempt to pull him up.

A little bit out of spite, but mostly a knee-jerk reaction, Smokey activated his semblance and anchored himself to the ground.  He watched, amused, as the girl named Kisha struggled to lift Smokey to his feet, her own heels digging in the dirt. 

"I'm not grumpy, I'm having loads of fun.  Here, maybe you'd understand if you saw things from my perspective," he said right before deactivating his semblance and deftly removing his hands from Kisha's grasp.  Just as when someone pulls on a taut rope that suddenly goes slack, Kisha stumbled backward and landed on her rear in the grass.

Chuckling, Smokey stood up and dusted himself off before offering a hand to the girl.  "My name's Smokey.  Smokey Emberstone."

Smokey shifted his attention to the girl in the-- wait, is that a guinea pig hoodie?  He cocked his head to the side and was about to comment on it before the other girl spoke up and floated down in front of him.

"Take off all that gear, all you will do if you run around in all that gear is tire yourself out and waste this beautiful weather."

"That's rich comin' from the ones wasting the day in that tree.  Do ya know how long it's been since we had good weather like this?  You two should get...some...exercise...too" Smokey trailed off as the girl who floated down proceeded to fly back up into the tree. 'Stupid mobility semblances' he mumbled under his breath.

"Plus with all that heavy gear on you can't climb up here."

Oh, that was a challenge if he ever heard one.  'No it's wan't, Smokey, calm down,' he said to himself, making sure to keep his cool. Taking a moment to think about it, though, getting better at climbing over difficult obstacles could come in handy in the field.  Perhaps climbing would do some good for him. 

"I can't, can I?  Well why don't we just see about that," Smokey said confidently, as he strode up to the tree and began to climb.  And he definitely made an effort.  He almost made it to the first branch before sliding back down the tree and on to his rump.

After finishing classes for the day, Smokey decided to take advantage of the clear weather by getting in some extra training in.  Heading out in full gear, he decided to do laps around the park to help his endurance and agility, things he'll need to compensate for while carrying two large weapons in the field. 

'Twenty laps oughtta do it' Smokey thought to himself as he stretched.  But as he warmed up, he spied an empty bottle next to a tree...and not in the trash can just a few yards away.  Grumbling to himself, Smokey marched over to the bottle to put it where it belongs when overheard some giggling.  He looked up to see two girls sitting in the tree. 

"Oi! This yours?" Smokey shouted up, pointing to the bottle on the ground.  He was visibly annoyed.

I've got a few other ones just to throw them out there. 
BISN (Bison)
SPIN
BECN (Bacon)
CNPS (Synapse, or Snaps)

Those are the only serious ones that I can think of, but if we went with NIPS and we ever get captured, we could spam #freetheNIPS!
