Title: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: nathan67003 on December 01, 2018, 09:37:07 PM
Helena squinted a bit, leaning ever so slightly closer to her scroll's screen. Sat at a table within the common area of Amity, she'd gotten wind of this edition's new rules. This'd made her look up what exactly happened last time around that would cause such new legislation to be implemented. And boy, had she found the jackpot.

Turns out that two years prior, several competitors had been injured with varying levels of severity - some in odd circumstances that were not uncommonly dubbed 'suspicious'. Her medical curiosity had been piqued and, after a quick search for the Tourney camera archives, she'd started to run through the various occurrences, attempting to observe, diagnose and treat the wounds she stumbled across - in a hypothetical fashion, of course. She wasn't exactly a time traveler.

While she was far less armed than she usually was when going on a mission (due to not being on a mission), Helena still has Seikatsu at her waist. Better safe than sorry, as they say. Add to this the VASTLY different climate of Atlas and she had coat and boots on her person, as well. Red laid atop her feet, largely hidden from curious passerbys underneath the table, while Kari was loosely wound around her neck, taking in as much heat as it could nestled between the warm skin and the insulating coat.

At the moment, she was flicking through several angles paused shortly before the occurrence of the first injury of the Vytal Festival held in Vale.

Fights between people, even just for training purposes had always made Diana nervous so she avoided most of the tournament, only watching the ones that involved her team or close friends. For her, the main draw for the tournament was that it was taking place in Atlas, it was a free trip back home to spend some time with her family.

Compared to most people around her she seemed to have dressed with little regard to the outside weather, especially for someone who was close to just skin and bone. Wearing a simple sleeveless purple dress with seemingly only leggings to help against the cold. For someone who grew up poor in Mantle her baseline was certainly lower than most, however the main thing that kept her warm was a piece of raw fire dust that she wore as a glamour on a white choker. She had also hidden her weapon in a duffle bag she carried.

As she returned to the common area of Amity from a quick meal with her brother she got out her scroll to send a quick message to her teammates to let them know that she was back, seeing as they wouldn't be done for at least an hour or two she decided to wander until she found someone she recognized.

Finally she spotted someone she was familiar with at least, although they hadn't talked much directly they certainly had things in common so now was as good a time as ever. "Umm, excuse me Helena? Not sure if you remember me, I'm Diana from Dr. Sophos' practical medicine class, mind if I join you?"

Walking around Amity’s common area with a massive bucket of popcorn, a very tanned cat faunus takes in all the sites and sounds of this year’s Vytal Festival.  The tournaments have always been exciting, and it looks like this year’s is turning out to be rather explosive!  There’s been a lot of collateral damage in the bouts already, whether it be from gravity wells, exploding swords, or even fire-tornadoes

The only thing that’s missing is someone to talk about it with, Toast mused.  Well, that and warm weather.  Nobody was dying of heat stroke in Atlas today, that’s for sure.  Unfortunately, the Vacuan faunus had come ill-prepared for the frigid temperatures, and he was forced to buy an overpriced Vytal Festival sweatshirt that he put on immediately, pulling the drawstrings as tight as they could go.  Between that and the thickest set of pants he could find, he pretty much looked like a hoodlum.  Some might have excused it if it was to hide his faunus features, but his tail was bobbing around behind him plain as day.  He’s just cold.

Cold and lonely.  Toast had heard he was supposed to be getting a team, soon, but hadn’t actually met any prospective teammates yet.  And considering Shade’s roster (rather, lack-thereof), it’s no surprise there weren’t many other Shade students around that he could talk to.  That’s no problem though, Toast doesn’t know the meaning of the word “stranger”.  All he needs to do is just find some people that look bored and—

He spies a girl sitting at a table looking at her scroll.  Perfect!  Everyone knows looking at your scroll is the ultimate sign of “please come talk to me, I’m bored out of my mind!”  Now, how should he approach this?  Show off with backflips?  Nah, this is a tournament filled with huntsmen and huntresses, that wouldn’t be too impressive.  Magic tricks?  That could work, but what should he use?  Should he go with the good ole’ card force, or should he go with some Lien shenanigans? Decisions, decisions…

As he’s pondering his approach, another woman walks up and begins talking to the girl at the table.  Oh, right, he could just say “hello”.  Why didn’t he think of that before?  After taking a moment to loosen himself up with a quick shoulder roll, he saunters up to the two ladies and says, ”Hi!” with a big bright smile.  ”Watcha’ doin’?” he asks innocently.

Helena took a second or so before realizing someone'd just talked to her, even if Red had raised his head when the feminine voice'd made itself heard. She shook off the momentary confusion and turned towards the source of the sound. Her face positively lit up, beaming sunshine everywhere in sight. "Diana! Of course I remember you!, she happily exclaimed. Scooting over to make some space on the table's bench, she continued with "Of course you can! I was just looking up previous injuries and trying to deal with them in my head."

Someone else may have had a slightly less glowing expression when talking about injuries, but Helena was not someone else. She placed her scroll on the table, between Diana and herself's positions, then activated the holo-screen, making the video pop out of the scroll itself and into the air at a the size of a decent laptop.

She'd barely settled into her new seat that someone else approached and said a bright, cheerful 'Hello'. Helena rapidly replied in kind. "Hello! We're looking at injuries in the previous Vytal Tourney and dealing with them ourselves! Sorta!"

Kari uncoiled a bit and peeked out of Helena's collar(s), wondering who and/or what was these new sounds close by, curious to see and smell those responsible.

Whilst, in reality, the pause before the response was tiny Diana's overly neurotic brain found plenty of time to twist it negatively and was desperately looking for a good way to escape. All of that was alleviated when Helena responded with what could only be described as blinding positivity. "Thank you" Diana responded trying her best to hide her internal thoughts and seem friendly whilst sitting down next to her. "Oh, I’ve looked at a few of those too. Some of them are just horrifying."

The holoscreen had barely been turned on before a third voice joined in, after Helena had spoken Diana figured she could handle the introductions. "Hi. I’m Diana, this is Helena, we’re both from Beacon. How about you?"

Once introductions were done she looked back to Helena and couldn't shake the feeling her necklace had just moved, absentmindedly she leaned in slightly to get a closer look.

Looking at people’s injuries from a previous tourney?  That seems kinda, well, morbid in Toast’s eyes, especially since there’s a tournament happening right now that will probably yield in some form of injury, most likely.  But then again, there’s a break in the action right now, so maybe she’s just passing the time in her own way.  Still kinda weird, though.

The other girl was also bizarre, but mostly because she’s wearing incredibly light clothing for the weather yet doesn’t appear fazed by the cold.  How can that be?  Does she just, like, radiate heat, or something?  Wait, could that be her semblance?  Well, only one way to find out…

Instead of answering Diana’s question, Toast instead puts his head a little bit too close, tucking his bucket of popcorn under one of his arms and holding out the other towards her, making himself look like a homeless man warming himself by a dumpster fire.  Sensing no heat, though, he quickly—and deftly—circles around her, searching for whatever magic that is keeping the girl from shivering in the frigid temperatures of Atlas.  His search is ultimately fruitless, and once he’s completed two quick revolutions, his face pops up to ask her, ”Aren’t you cold?”

But before Diana can respond, he suddenly spins around and knocks himself on the forehead, as if he just remembered something.  ”Right, I forgot to introduce myself!” he proclaims, as if that’s the most pressing issue at the moment.  Whirling back around towards the two ladies and says with an oblivious grin, ”Yo, I’m Toast, I do magic and flips and shit.”

With his introduction over, he brings the bucket of popcorn back to its original position, takes a handful of popcorn, and shoves it into his mouth.  Interestingly, if anyone cared to notice, not a single dropped piece of popcorn could be found in the immediate area, despite all of the shenanigans.  Turning toward the scroll, which was still displaying the recording of the last tournament, Toast says (with his mouth still full), ”So, watching the previous fights, huh?  Which fight’s that one?”

"Eh, I've seen worse go through the emergency at the hospital, but I see your point.", Helena responded to Diana.

The boy's quick and spontaneous motions were mildly uncomfortable to Red, who moved a bit over Helena's feet. Expressively active people weren't his forte. Helena, on the other hand, was utterly unfazed. "Oh, I forgot to do that too! I'm Helena! The ball of fuzz at my feet is Red and the thing curiously flicking at the air with its tongue is Kari!"

Kari poked a bit further out from the sanctity of Helena's coat, her snout barely poking out from the coat's neck. Her tongue, as Helena had mentioned, flicked curiously, attempting to divine who or what these new smells were.

Hardly a social butterfly Diana was already out of her comfort zone from approaching someone she barely knew to then be joined by a stranger. Whilst a bit uncomfortable she was trying her best to seem approachable, somehow she had become a team leader so she had to get over her social anxiety. That was all well and good until the stranger reached his hand out to her and then silently walked around to visually inspected her, that she had no idea how to respond to. Nervously she straightened her skirt as he circled her and gave him an expectant look as he finished the rotation, as he started a second rotation Diana grabbed the writs on her other hand and generally shrunk in her seat. Of all the horrible explanations her brain could come up with for his behavior she had not expected the simple question he had so she was initially confused.

"What? I.. oh" relaxing her posture a bit she collected her thoughts as Toast actually introduced himself. ”Well yes I am a bit cold but I grew up in Mantle so I’m used to it, and there's this" she gestured to her choker "Fire dust that heats my blood and the air I breathe, it's pretty effective if not the most beautiful necklace."

As soon as Helena pointed out her pets Diana jolted back a bit in surprise before tilting her head and addressing the snake. "Oh hello there Kari, not enjoying the climate I take it. And you said there was another one? Oh!" As soon as she saw the fox under the table she slipped out of her seat and under the table to pet it. A few seconds later she slowly came up again realizing she may have gotten a bit too excited. "Ehrm, sorry. You said you've worked at a hospital? How did that happen?"

Toast shovels another handful of popcorn into his gullet as Helena introduces her animals, prompting the faunus to examine the snake and fox in question.  As the snake—Kari, apparently—lifts its head from around the girl’s neck, Toast tilts his head quizzically, though he doesn’t get any closer.  A lifetime in the desert has taught him a healthy respect for snakes.  Though, that doesn’t stop him from striking up a conversation about it.

”Oh neat!  Ya know, I used to work with a snake charmer years back.  He was a big hit with the tourists who’d come by.  I always wondered how he managed to keep their attention without getting bit or spit at,” Toast says while chewing his popcorn, only pausing to swallow.  ”Then he got arrested for animal cruelty when I was, like, seven.  Apparently de-fanging snakes is a disreputable business practice.  Who knew, right?”

When Diana explains the miracle of her dust necklace to him, Toast’s eyes widen in amazement as he unabashedly stares at it.  ”Hey, do you know where your boy can pick up one of those?  ‘Cuz, like, it’s pretty cold up here and this sweatshirt ain’t cutting it, know what I mean?  Also, as a corollary, does it only come in heater, or is there an air conditioning version?  ‘Cuz, like, I’m from the desert, right?  So, like, it’s really friggin’ hot, and havin’ something like this would be a godsend” he asks, barely stopping to take a breath between sentences.

As Diana dressed herself to Kari, the latter turned towards the source of the now much-closer sound, flicking her tongue enthusiastically. The large mass soon departed from her field of vision, though, and Kari was currently not in the mood to leave the warm and comfy home that was currently her owner's neck. She therefore moved back in, her head nestled to the right. Red, while the object of a bit more attention from the lass, had a less fun time. He wasn't especially good with strangers. Ears folded back, it still let itself be petted, which was still a better option than making a fuss at the young lady. Plus, she wasn't exactly exuding an ominous vibe, which made things easier. It was however very thankful that the more... intense guest kept to himself.

"Oh, it's a thing I started doing after I discovered my semblance at Signal. Extracurricular activities, if you will. My semblance allowed me to help others with their injuries, so naturally, the hospital seemed like a good place to practice. Not only that, I'd also be able to learn a lot from the situations and people around me. I had as much theory as I wanted with books, but there's something entirely different about practice. So yeah, I've seen much worse than a gunshot wound to the stomach. Like the occasional Ursa mauling, for example." As she finished her last sentence, Helena's expression softened a bit, her smile momentarily losing strength before returning as bright as ever. Yes, even while she listened to Toast recount a mildly depressing anecdote on animal cruelty.

At that moment the footage of a competitor being shot was playing on the scroll, the sound of Ergia's gunfire coming out quietly from the scroll, briefly after which a small commotion begun when a boy behind them drew his weapons in response.
That boy had long black hair that covered one of his deep purple eyes. he was wearing a black coat with a red fur lining to help deal with the cold, on his shoulder was a cracked white fang mask.
 The wolf ears atop his head had heard one of the many sounds that had been haunting his nightmares for the past year and his twin blades had come flying from the holders at his hips into his hands.
He was snarling and frantically searching for the source of the sound.

A bit overexcited at the Fox under the table Diana pet it with gusto, upon seeing the less than eager response from the animal she stopped. Not too familiar with animals outside of pets she remembered reading somewhere that a sign of trust was to look into the animal's eyes and close your own slowly as if falling asleep, she tried that and as her eyes closed she recalled that this was advice about cats which probably wouldn't apply to a Fox. Feeling quite silly she opened her eyes again and rejoined the conversation above the table. She gave a smile at the notion of working with a snake charmer, a smile that was promptly washed off at the mention of animal cruelty.

"Not really sure no, jewelers or dust shops if I were to guess, mind you glamour dust that's going to last a while can be quite expensive. I mean I could never affo.. that is to say my dad worked in a dust mine and he got it for me." she absentmindedly rubbed the rough crystal while speaking "You're from the desert? And I don't see any reason why ice Dust couldn't function the same, but can't say I've ever needed it here or at Beacon."

"That's amazing, my semblance has some healing properties, but they're quite slow so probably not that useful, but It would be nice to do help people without weapons in hand. I might bug you for some contact information once we get back to Beacon." She glanced at Helena's scroll which was still playing the match recording at a fairly noticeable volume, wondering how rude it would be to turn off someone else's scroll, before deciding against it.
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: ReaperJoe on June 03, 2019, 06:09:24 PM
Continuing to nonchalantly chew on popcorn, Toast idly listened to the girls' conversation, though most of its going over his head.  He does gather that both girls have healing semblances, but other than that, he doesn't particularly care for the ins and outs of medicine and hospital work.  You wouldn't be able to tell from his face though, performer that he is.

Still, they never answered his question about who was fighting in the recording Helena was watching, and Toast tries to lean in to get a better look.  It's at this moment that Toast's sense go off.  A unique property of aura is the ability to tell when danger is afoot, an ability Wabul Paka has learned to respect considerably during his childhood wandering the desert.  The only downside is that it doesn't show where the danger is.

Shifting the bucket in his grip, Toast's eyes quickly scan his surroundings while his ears listen for anything out of place.  He quickly finds the origin of the disturbance, the sound of snarling behind him.  Out of the corner of his eye, he spies weapons in the hands of the potential enemy, and Toast decides to act quickly before things start getting really bad.

While trying to stay as subtle as possible, Toast backs up so he's back to back with the man, at first making it seem like an incidental bump in the crowd until he says, "Hey buddy, take a look where you are before you do something stupid, kay?  Now put those away before someone gets hurt."  His tone is non-threatening, but its cool and even, without the slightest hint of concern. 
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: nathan67003 on June 15, 2019, 09:05:10 PM
fuck I completely forgot the 'which fight is this' line

Although Diana's ploy may have seem vain, Red somewhat managed to understand the meaning behind it. His ears perked back up, unfolding from their less-than-pleased position. Said ears twitched upon hearing some nearby growling, as well. The fox lifted its head and swiveled around, zeroing in on the source of the ruckus.

Helena didn't miss Diana's eyes flicker towards her scroll. Deciding that the conversation was now and the match already then, she turned off the holo-screen and paused the video. She'd have plenty of time to come back to it later. "Why wait until Beacon? If you have your scroll on you, we could probably exchange info right now!"

Continuing to scan the room hurriedly looking for the source of Ergia's gunfire Gray felt something collide with his back and turned on his heel swinging wildly at what he assumed was a threat. Until he saw that it wasn't Nathan at which point he attempted to stop the blow, far too late to prevent it from hitting but making it very easy to defend against.
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: ReaperJoe on June 20, 2019, 01:38:05 AM
Toast has mixed feelings about the girls not noticing the current situation.  On the one hand, it's probably a good thing that the public hasn't noticed a drawn weapon in the middle of Amity Colosseum.  On the other, Toast really likes being the center of attention.  It's probably for the best, but it seems this culprit is intent on making a scene.

Unfortunately for him, Toast has the drop on him, not the other way around.  As soon as the wolf faunus began to turn for his attack, the cat faunus is already beginning his counter.  In one swift movement, Toast leaps up and over him, sending the bucket of popcorn high into the air as his body twists, ending up in a perfect upside-down vertical directly above his prey.  In that same motion, his free hand draws a pistol from the pocket of his souvenir sweatshirt. But instead of a bullet, a blade shoots out and begins to crackle with electric energy as lightning dust courses through the steel.

And as Toast reaches that upside-down vertical above the other faunus, the blade reaches down and taps on the boy's arm.  There's no piercing, no damage behind the blade itself, but the electricity is less discerning as it jumps from steel to flesh, sending a jolt through the culprit's sword arm and hopefully forcing it to drop his weapon.

After that, the former acrobat twists in the air once more to right himself and lands gracefully, once again directly behind his opponent.  This time however, the Butter Knife gently rests on the other boy's shoulder.  With a playful--almost joking--smile, he says, "Seriously, man, as much as I like putting on a show, I really don't want to spill my popcorn."  As if on cue, the bucket of popcorn previously tossed into the air falls gently into Toast's outstretched free hand, not a single kernel of popcorn dropped.

With a satisfying *click* she opened a pouch on her belt and took out her scroll "Yeah sure, here you go." unlocking her scroll and handing it to Helena "I just wanted to give you an out if you would prefer to not give it to me, or if you needed to check with them whom I sho..." she stopped mid-sentence, her attention captured by the sight of Toast jumping to dodge an attack. Not really sure what to do she just sat there with a concerned expression looking at at the two making a scene and then back to Helena.
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: nathan67003 on June 26, 2019, 03:04:30 PM
Helena's smile widened (if possible) when Diana handed over her own scroll, unlocked and everything. Taking it with her left hand and picking up the one on the table with her right, she was listening to her until the sentence trailed off, staring with a worried look on her face at something. Helena turned as well, her brow furrowed in mild confusion. It only got worse once she caught sight of it, too...
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: arcus_gray on July 17, 2019, 03:33:12 AM
To Gray's relief his attack was nowhere near hitting the mark. He then yelped in pain as an electric current went into his injured shoulder. The pain caused his grip on his weapon to tighten, making it impossible for Gray to put the weapon down at the moment. He begun to turn again before the calm and joking words cut through instinct fully enough to provoke a more reasoned response. That response however was just sullen silence.
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: ReaperJoe on July 17, 2019, 10:54:12 AM
Toast was currently very proud of himself at the moment.  Not only had he successfully dodged an attack, he did a back flip while dodging and even got in a one-liner!  Bonus points, he did it in front of two cute girls!  Nice!  Now he just needs to wait for the applause and...wait, where's the applause?

Glancing over at Diana and Helena, he saw their expressions and inwardly winced.  Looks like he hasn't impressed them at all.  Even his "opponent" didn't seem particularly enthusiastic, though at least he wasn't taking more swings.  That's a plus, right?

"Heh, not even a witty retort, huh?  Tough crowd," Toast says with an awkward chuckle, before trying to offer a compromise.  "Tell ya' what, I kinda need this hand to eat popcorn, so I'll put mine away if you stow yours, sound good?"
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: Vision on July 23, 2019, 06:44:22 PM
Her conversation with Helena momentarily forgotten Diana's hand had instinctually started to reach for her weapon, however seeing that things didn't escalate she instead unbuckled her belt and slowly lowered the sheath to the ground so that it wouldn't make a sound. Thus as she stood up she was unarmed and held one hand in the other in front of her to make it clear there was no threat. After Toast had suggested they both lower their weapons, Diana spoke up, though a bit quiet at the start. "I'm Diana, from Beacon" gesturing to the others she added "We're just students, relaxing between tournament fights." she tried to put on a warm smile though there was still a nervous glint in her eye.
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: nathan67003 on July 27, 2019, 02:36:05 PM
Helena mostly just stared at the (ex-)belligerent parties, confused at to what exactly had happened or was even happening. Seems like she'd missed quite a lot when chatting with Diana. She was still holding the scrolls, too.

Diana presenting herself successfully snapped Helena back, to a point anyway. She turned around on the bench, still sitting down with scrolls in hand and beamed a smile bright enough to blind at the newcomer. "I'm Helena, also from Beacon! We were watching some past fights on my scroll." Yes, she seemed careless but as far as she was concerned, it was a person and they didn't seem to have ill intent, therefore suspicion was unnecessary. She glanced down at the scrolls, quickly made them exchange coordinates and closed them, putting hers in her right pocket and keeping Diana's in her left hand for now. Her attention (and smile) were now fully focused on those in front of herself.

Red, however, wasn't so easily convinced and kept his eyes trained on the Faunus from behind Helena's legs.

Gray responded to Toast's request by sheathing the weapon in the hand he still had motor control in while his other hand shook in an effort to get it to move properly again. It was at this moment that Gray realised, in his initial panic he had activated his semblance so he had no aura to mitigate the shock he took. A red glow appeared around him as his aura returned and a wave of exhaustion hit him and he slumped further, not quite falling over. Then he finally gave a response  "Thought I heard gunshots.....sorry."
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: ReaperJoe on July 30, 2019, 05:06:17 PM
Toast watched Gray sheathe his sword before reverting the Butterknife back into a simple pistol and hiding it back in his hoody pocket.  It didn't look like the faunus opposite him wanted to continue, so Toast simply went back to shoveling popcorn in his mouth.

He was surprised to see the two girls react so warmly to the newcomer, considering a fight nearly broke out.  Then again, it looked like they only caught the tail end of the altercation, and that's probably for the best, all thing's considered.  That being said, he's still a bit salty no one said anything about that sick backflip he pulled off. He even caught the popcorn, too!  He deserved some recognition for that at least, right?  What's a cat gotta do to get some appreciation around here?

He shovels another handful of popcorn into his mouth to keep himself from voicing his dissatisfaction, and ultimately finds a way to take his mind off of it when the new guy speaks up.  "I mean, if you heard gunshots, why didn't you just get security?  I mean, this is Atlas, they have this place on lock!" he says nonchalantly.  "Oh, right, I'm Toast, by the way."

While glad that things were de-escalating, Diana was far from comfortable and wasn't really sure what to do with herself now. She was quite tempted to just sit down again and let Toast handle it from here. Before she decided her eye was drawn to the newcomer due to a momentary red glow as his aura kicked in. Presumably that meant that his aura didn't block the damage for him but even so she figured she could extend an olive branch and offer to help.

"If either of you took a hit to your aura I can, top you up, so to speak" she looked to both of them before adding "that is, it's my semblance."

Helena barely relaxed when the Faunus lowered his weapons - well, one of them - as she was already relaxed. The red shimmer that momentarily covered him made her raise her eyebrows, though. It wasn't every day you saw someone bring their Aura back up like that. His words, however, made her frown ever so slightly - was it the video they'd been (half-)watching? Toast's point made her suspicions raise further, albeit nowhere near a conclusion.

Diana's mention of her semblance made Helena turn towards her, eyes filled with stars even more so than usual. "Oh, really? That's so interesting! I've never seen or heard of anything like that... How does it work?"

Red, on his end, remained alert, but relaxed a bit as well when the weapon was lowered.

"Didn't want the psycho to shoot anyone else." Gray responded quietly to Toast. Then turned his attention to Diana "Aura was down anyway."
Title: Re: Movie Night [Closed]
Post by: ReaperJoe on August 10, 2019, 04:33:52 PM
Toast, still nonchalantly shoveling handfuls of popcorn in his mouth, kept his eyes on the wolf faunus in front of him.  Sure, it didn't look like he'd cause any more trouble, but, at the same time, there was no real reason for him to make a scene in the first place...right?  Well, in any case, Toast was pretty sure he could handle things if the guy started hearing more "gunshots", at least until proper security arrived and took matters into their own hands.  The problem would be what the security personnel would decide to do with Toast himself:  his cat tail is still waving around in broad daylight for all to see, and he still kind of looks like a thug.  Atlas might just decide to detain him as well, and Toast does not relish that idea. 

That being said, if anyone were looking for concern on the cat faunus's face, they'd instead find a carefree smile as he continued munching on his snack.  "Wait, 'top us up'?  How's that work?" he asks Diana in between mouthfuls.  "Like, do you just speed up the regeneration, or what?"

"'Anyone else'?" he continues in response to the wolf faunus, "No offense, my guy, but the only that looked like a psycho just now was you.  By the way, don't think we ever caught your name, Big Dawg."

"Not regeneration no, well kinda, but just in the same way that aura itself repairs wounds." Seeing as Toast had managed to calm down the newcomer Diana took the chance to sit down again, choosing a seat next to Helena. She tried to come up with some discrete way to thank Toast for handling the situation but couldn't think of anything.

Looking from Toast to Helena she continued her description "When I touch someone I can sorta combine my aura with theirs. So you do get faster regeneration with twice the aura available but its more useful for those that don't have their aura unlocked. But the main use for missions is that when I break the connection I can leave some of my aura behind, so I'm sorta a battery for my teammates if you will."

Helena had a thought when the wolf Faunus talked about shooting again. It couldn't... It wasn't that, right?

Before asking, though, she intently listened to Diana as she explained her semblance's workings, sitting back down along with her. Truth be told, it sounded pretty great. Especially the independent part of it, even more so when you considered how it'd apply to people without an activated Aura.

When she finished explaining, Helena handed her locked scroll back while saying "That's so great! Doesn't that mean that you can leave Aura behind in several people who don't have an activated Aura?"

And yes, she wanted to address the shots thing, but might as well take the opportunity to let the dust settle.

"Huh," is all Toast says as Diana explains a bit of her semblance.  Unfortunately, with the way she explained it, he imagined her as a literal battery being carried around by her teammates.  And then he thought about her being hooked up to a battery.  And then he wondered about the logistics of how she was hooked up to a battery.  And then Toast decided to think about something else.

"That's more useful than my semblance," he says, "Mine's just a big, orange bubble.  Don't pop it though, it'll sting a bit."  He shoves another handful of popcorn in his mouth.  Now that he thinks about it, the world's a big place, and there's a bunch of really cool semblances out there.  He idly wonders if there are people with identical semblances out there.  Maybe there's someone with a semblance like his?  Nah, that's impossible; Toast is one of a kind.

Looking over at the other faunus in the group, Toast raises an eyebrow.  "Ya know, stayin' quiet over there isn't really doin' much for the whole 'totally-not-a-maniac' thing you got goin' on right now.  I mean, if you don't at least give me a name, I'm just gonna have to start calling you 'Killer'," he jokes.

"Gray. My name is Gray. Also I'm not crazy." Despite his weapons being away Gray still had his wolf ears perked up to catch any sound. He was evidently still on high alert.

"Well no.. or at least I haven't been able to figure it out, it might not be possible for them to maintain an aura without having their own unlocked. So for now at least I have to be in contact with them for as long as it would take for my aura to heal their wounds, which is certainly impractical for most things beyond scrapes." She pocketed her scroll making a mental note to check if any contact info had been added, not really a pressing issue at the moment.

Diana was a bit concerned by how on edge Gray seemed, however it didn't take long before she found a plausible reason to empathize with him. He was a faunus in Atlas after all. Her heart sank at the many implications that might have for the newcomer "We were just a bit surprised, no harm done, it's nice to meet you Gray."

Helena intently listened to all participants, a shadow of a smile floating on her lips all the while. Diana's semblance sounded like a great support role, more so than her own due to its Aura-related nature. Toast's semblance piqued her curiosity a bit but momentum prevented her from asking him to elaborate on it.

Somewhat thankfully, the discussion ended up rolling back towards the newly-christened (as far as Helena's knowledge was concerned) Gray, allowing her to talk about what had been on her mind. "Say, Gray, I think I was listening to a video on speaker when you came in.", she said as she opened up her scroll again and thumbed her way to the video title. "Do you think you could've been hearing the gunshots from this video?" she finished asking as she showed him her scroll's screen.

"See, that's exactly what a crazy person would say, though," Toast jokes at the newly christened Gray.  Judging from his posture, Gray still seemed to be on-guard, like he was still expecting something to go wrong.  Is he always like that?  Must be a pain to always be on the look-out, Never getting a chance to catch your breath and feel safe.  In an attempt to lighten the mood, Toast asked the other faunus, "So, any of the fights this year catch your interest?  I know there was one guy who got slammed into through a tree, and that was pretty cool."

When Diana tries to further explain her semblance, Toast pipes up, "Wait, that sounds super inconvenient.  Wouldn't it be faster to just unlock their aura and let them heal up on their own?  Actually, now that I think about it, why don't we just do that?  Feel like the survival rate would go up if we did...,"  It works in the desert, at least.  Wouldn't it be safer if people had whatever the hell aura is to protect them?  Seems like common sense to Toast.

When Helena shows Gray the scroll, Toast peers over his shoulder to get a look for himself.  When he sees the video title, he comments, "Hey, wait, isn't that your name?"

 "The 2nd year rounds. Shows how much better we can get." Gray replied quickly to Toast. Then his attention was brought to the scroll. He didn't say anything but his physical response told the story pretty well. His entire body tensed up and his face twisted into a snarl. He looked about ready to start lashing out again.

Diana was still a bit uneasy with their newest addition, Toast and Helena were both asking questions yet he seemed to only answer half of them. Lost in her own mind as to why this could be she almost missed when a question was asked back at her. Snapping back to reality she answered "Huh? Oh well yeah I guess it is pretty inconvenient." she shrugged, and gave a short pause to consider why everyone didn't just have their aura unlocked "It does take training and effort to maintain an aura so people who just want to live a normal life might not want to have to think about that, in the same way that they would be safer if they carried weapons or such."

Seeing Gray's reaction, Helena promptly retrieved her scroll and closed it before putting it out of sight. She wasn't a psychological expert or anything but that guy looked like he had some serious trauma and/or drama stemming from that fight. Not that it'd be all that surprising, really, considering the events...

Turning back to the other ongoing discussion, partially to get away from the sensitive subject and partially to let the poor man breathe, she chimed in with her own two cents, smile disarmingly large and genuine as per usual. "And that's why you've got me for those without Aura! My semblance works independent of that, so I can always take care of the Aura-less wounded while Diana can support the active fighters better than I could. Well, I'm pretty decent with a bow, but I can't exactly refill others' Aura or anything."

"Huh, well if you're watchin' 'em for that, you should check out the Huntsmen bracket!  That's where the cream of the crop are, right?" Toast says to Gray, happy that there's actually some semblance of conversation happening.  "I heard there was the crazy guy in that bracket, too, think his name starts with a J.  Apparently they have to lead him into the arena with a bunch of armed guards, it's pretty nutso!"  Gray's reaction to the phone doesn't slip past Toast, and the cat faunus subtly lowers his hand to his hoodie pocket just in case he needs his sword again.  His outward expression remains relaxed and as casual as ever, though.

Turning back to his conversation with Diana, Toast quizzically cocks his head to the side.  "Really?  Huh, it's pretty easy for me.  Maybe it's 'cuz I've been doing it for a long time?" he asks, at the same time flexing his aura to demonstrate his natural ability with it.  "I don't know, just feels like it could be something taught in, like, primary school or something; just have kids learn to use aura so the big bad monsters with giant teeth don't eat them." he continues, miming the fangs of Grimm with his hands against his mouth.

At Helena's interjection, Toast turns to her and says, "Wait, both of you have healing semblances?  Huh, small world I guess."
