starting and stopping kinetic energy is fine it's just I didn't see why it needed two symbols which would do the same thing.

as for the ability itself beginning able to directly affect aura users is going to be a pretty hard no, it simply opens up too many auto-hit shenanigans by moving your opponents into the line of fire. Willing targets should be fine tho.

also how exactly does Attom apply these symbols to things?
While Razzy had been recovering from the attack, so had Revya. He saw the boy running at him and quickly moved to counter using his arms to press himself off the but of his scythe and move away, using the scythe as a shield while it remained stuck in the ground.
A quick trigger-pull solved that issue and Revya swung the scythe in a wide circle around him.

Revya Battle Data

Aura level:54%

Wide swing: 10%
Now facing his opponent Sandy saw a wide swing of a big sword coming easily and leaped into the air leaping over the sword and twisting in mid-air as he did so, pulling another bomb out as he did so using the momentum from his twist to fling the bomb almost point blank into Setsuna's face.

Sandy Battle Data

Aura level: 75%

point blank dust bomb:8% (will take splash damage if the bomb connects)
     Such an odd semblance, Ayaka thought, seeing the amorphous and oddly convenient aura shape itself. The following shock wasn't enough to bring her down, however, and knowing the rat, he'd probably use it some other way.

     A second later she felt a shot to her back, and groaned but was more annoyed than anything. "Is that all you've got?" She cried, throwing her free hand to the side, twisting her leg, then aiming an aura powered knee to the crotch that can't possibly be avoided at this range. Not a second later she channeled her aura to her feet and attempted to escape the grab, using the crotch attack as her main distraction, then bursting forward to leap into the air, dragging her sword along with her if she successfully shot upwards. The force was enough to launch her upwards, and with her wires she would hook Catalina along with her to entangle any part that got caught as she launched.

Aura -80%

Attacks -
Burst Knee Attack to Crotch - 10%
Sword + Semblance Burst upwards - 10%

Billy’s looked uncomfortable when talking about her semblance, but she started to light up as the conversation moved on to weapons.

“Gunkata you say? I’m surprised anyone can wild a sniper rifle fast enough to do any gunkata. Then again, you do have a rocket to propel it faster through the air so, that makes since. My style is like yours with the lay low and snipe, but instead of gunkata, I’m more or less perfecting the art of the quick draw. I reload faster with the lever action and if you’re going to have to reposition after every shot anyways if your sniping might as well reposition reloading the way you like. I’m all for the heavy hits too.

She became a bit more quiet and shy as she brought up the next part of the conversation.

Oh and to answer your earlier question about the thought process for my weapon. A uh... teacher of mine, well more of a mentor, showed me how to shoot with a gun like it. Before that I had been using pistols and had no control of my aim. Then I needed something for melee and when I flipped my gun around to start hitting things with it, the idea to make the hammer came into being. ”

She laughed as if a funny memory popped into her head. She then looked a bit sad as she reminisced.

“Do you have any mentor or teacher stories?” She asked absentmindedly.

Stopping and starting kinetic energy is a bit OP, I agree. I decided to stick with one.

Here's the new Aura and Semblance:
"Aura and Semblance: With his gold aura he controls the semblance of his symbol (the gold circle with Chinese words for “heart” and “gold” seen above). He can speed up however fast something is going through his semblance symbol or over his symbol up to eight times its original speed. This can be dust infused to shoot dust coated things at opponents. He has control over how fast something is shot at an opponent. This works on dust, inanimate objects, aura users, and creatures of grimm. The size of the symbols diameter can very from the size of his hand to the size of himself standing up straight. If he or another person can move what they want to move through or over the symbol, it can and will fly fast in the direction what they are moving it at. The size of what can be moved goes up to about the size of a two-door car. "

I also added a little to personality and dust functions.

Judging from her reaction, Cat really has overestimated himself when making that comment. He thought being in the 16s rounds means that he would have some recognition. Apparently not, not even from people who are supposed to encounter him in a match. That reminds him; he should probably watch the fights in round 2 as well.

"A lasso is fairly useful though. I suggest you train to have finer control over it and a longer range. It can increase your aptitude in multiple fields, including offense, defense, and mobility. Training your strength is still a step in the right direction nonetheless, allowing you to actually pull off the maneuvers instead of as you said, pulling yourself towards doom. As for my design philosophy, it is a hammer because at the time of it's conception heavy hits are favored over several small ones, and I asked for the holes in it because flamethrower makes for a decent AoE and gives a thrust that offsets it's generally low attack speed. It's the same deal with the sniper form in that it produces hard, somewhat slow attacks. My idea of using it is to either snipe you down from a hidden position or shove the gun in your face and perform gun katas."

Gotcha. Here's where the fun begins. Catalina triumphantly thought to himself. Ayaka's body feels neither warm or comfortable, but that's because 1)Aura and 2)She's constantly struggling. Plus, we're talking about constraining an enemy as the context here, it's not like Cat is embracing his lover or something.

Seeing Ayaka has shot out the wires to wrap it around Cat is no less than ideal, because that makes rounding her up so much more efficient. All Cat needs to do is take it from her hand. So Cat just reached out with his Semblance and struggled against her hand delivering the choke. Then in his toolbox, the lightning Dust is uncapped and it's content infused into his field of Aura, including that thing that was sent to confront Ayaka's threatening hand. They provide a constant electric shock to hopefully weaken Ayaka's resistance.

Using this chance, Cat draws some more upon his Semblance by using it to hold his rifle, pointed it at Ayaka's back and pulled the trigger. Hopefully, this would hit because using his Semblance as hands allow the recoil to damage itself a bit, and the strain on his mind is already manifesting in the form of heavier breathing.

Combat stats:
Aura: 83% (-3% from recoil)
Ammo for Take That!: 15/20 shots of piercing rounds loaded/1 magazine of piercing rounds/1 magazine of explosive rounds/5 shocking rounds/5 heating rounds/5 freezing round
Dust: 0% Fire/100% Earth/25% Lightning/100% Ice
Semblance: 65%

The hug is now imbued with lightning Dust dealing 5% damage per second of contact.
Sniper shot: 15%x1

I don't understand how you have drawn your conclusions. History is full of examples of people being trained from much younger than 14 years old in organised academies the same isn't so for medical students. The skills required to be a good doctor are not the same as being good at hitting people with sticks and although they both definitely require cognitive aspects I don't think it's a fair comparison. But like I said it's not something I need you to change.

(sooooooo opps. No pressure if you guys don't want to continue, I already know Mike isn't around much anymore)

Although the no-quite-Paladin wasn’t particularly heavily armoured it still took a few of Nathan’s rounds before they started finding their mark. Clearly ‘skilled’ at cutting the hunters-in-training’s sightlines the droid was darting between the trees to prolong its ‘life,’ fruitlessly of course as the combined weight of Nathan’s fire and Revya’s fireball was simply too much punishment for its light chassis to handle. With a crackle, fizzle and a pop the droid crashed down motionless, likely the forest was kept rather moist by the ‘rain’ so only small bits of shrub started to catch alight. Luckily for the hunters-in-training whatever they were testing seemed to desire to remained unburnt as them which resulted in a thick fog starting to fill the forest. Despite the obvious benefits of extinguishing the fires fog had the far more pressing effect by drastically reducing the hunters-in-training field of vision making seeing where they were going and where they came from almost impossible.

Nothing else of interest would transpire for a good half an hour as the hunters-in-training continued deeper into the forest. If they decided to investigate the destroyed droid they would find very little of recoverable information but it could serve as an impromptu shield or bomb given it's not insignificant dust storage. Even though whatever power was hiding within the forest didn’t continue to act directly there was clearly something moving out there hidden by the undergrowth and thick fog. The snapping of twigs echoed a thousand times over in the otherwise silent forest coming from all around the party as well as strange rustling like the wind blowing across rocky outcrops. Nothing that can be detected through aura and if the hunters-in-training tried to chase after the sounds there would be nothing but the figurative wind and a significant chance of getting separated. The sounds started to grow in intensity until finally after almost an hour of silence things started to emerge from the fog.

Two worms like robotic creatures emerged with another two following behind all coming in from the left of the party. They are massive constructs, over ten meters or thirty feet in length visible and more hidden by the fog and another few feet or meter in radius. A gaping maw of razor-sharp teeth rotating like drill struck out with surprising speed, one at each of the hunters-in-training for a frenzied flurry of drilled teeth bites but those were merely a distraction as every bite that went wide was an opportunity that the robotic worms used to wrap around their opponents. This was where their real danger lay, as if they managed to get wrapped around their target they would release a huge amount on ice dust, hoping to render the hunter-in-training temporarily powerless then retract back into the fog.
