 Wind blew up behind the pesky gnat and Vermilion's eyes widened. It wasn't the first time someone thought they were hot stuff but he enjoyed the challenge he presented, it was flattering in a weird way. His opponent, just another pebble to be kicked aside, seemed to think otherwise. Unfortunately he wasn't in the mood to bring her hopes up any more than that and dispelled the spears beneath him, leaving the few others hanging behind him as he dropped backwards.

     Topaz' attack fully depended on Verm not moving from his perch, high above the ground and looking down on his enemies. Vermilion was stubborn, the type of person who wouldn't budge if he wished but even if it was true, he was far from stupid.

     Cackling as he dispelled his spears, Vermilion dropped as Topaz zoomed over him, not even bothering to follow up the attack with the spears in his place, but got a glancing hit as he dropped, dropping him into the sand. Red hung in the air, sparsely spaced so they probably wouldn't all hit, but also a threat in themselves to charging idiots.

     Particles of dirt filled the air for but a moment and Vermilion spun his rifle to clear the debris, transforming it to its spear form while taking a moment to brush off some dirt on his shoulder. Instead of summoning more spears he hung back and rested his spear on his shoulder, taking a rest from using his semblance and the fight while wondering if he should help Vivian instead of bothering with Topaz.

     "Viv! Need a little help over there? Just say so and I'll stop playing around" He jeered, wondering if the rabbit would hear him with her current clash.

Immediately, Vivian regretted her taunting. Even with the space she had cleared between them, his spear was long enough to close the gap and strike her in the torso [-6% aura]. She couldn't quite move fast enough to evade, especially with this big block of ice on her arm keeping her off balance. The ice was falling apart, slowly but surely, as was her plan of action. Moving in and smacking him with her frozen arm was a possibility, but she could tell it'd be too sluggish. For now, she kept at bashing the ice, continuing to back up with her eyes locked on

At her teammate's call, her ears perked up. Resorting to help from that guy was a pain, but if it would better their chances of victory, she could put up with him gloating about it later. "Help please!" was all she shouted back, still retreating cautiously.

Though Avery was successful in hampering her progress for now, he knew that if he didn't keep up the pressure, she would be free in no time; Vivian's call for help further confirmed this. Avery stepped into his next attack, and instead of going for another jab, he instead swept at her feet[1] hoping to, with the help of the sand, destabilize her.

Smacking Vermillion into the ground felt good as the force of his body on the very edge of Lithium gave resistance to her attack, but he had his own tricks up his sleeve as she flew right into another batch of spears with three of them striking her dead center turning the attack into equal portioned blows. If the damage that she gave herself from blowing up a wind crystal under Topaz was taken into account he won that blow exchange with the exception of getting put on the ground which was something.

As the momentum of the blast faded Topaz landed back onto the ground with the sand giving her a nice cushy landing pad, by now she was closer to where her opponents came from than where the battle was and would have to waste time running back leaving Avery on his own for a hot second. In one smooth motion, Topaz spun around sending the sand under her feet flying while switching Lithium back into bow and firing off a shot at Vivian seeing as Vermillion was hidden behind a crystal from her. As the arrow left the bow she began running back in an effort to rejoin the fray.

   Hearing Vivian beg for help was a sweet tone to Vermilion’s ears. Unfortunately he couldn’t just let her beg on and she frankly wasn’t the type of person who’d do so anyways. Not a moment later a dull thud resounded nearby indicating Topaz’s decent.
     
     “Nice of you to join us, reckless arrow girl. “  Vermilion greeted, spear on his shoulder but before he even received a reply an arrow already started flying towards his teammate. “Well that’s just rude.”
   
     Taking his spear, he in turn shot a rifle round at Avery and used the momentum to swing his spear backwards before planting it into the ground. Arrow girl wasn’t a problem, if she did give chase all he’d have to do is make more spear walls. The poor thing would probably just run into them again.
   
     With a snap of his fingers several spears manifested in front of Topaz in a threatening display of sharpened aural points but they didn’t lunge. Hoping it’d be enough of a distraction, Vermilion launched the pile function on his spear and shot into the air, forming three spears as he closed in on Avery and launching them downwards in close proximity to both Vivian and her enemy, just ever so slightly to the latter. Picking between melee fighters was a hassle, might as well have them both scatter.

Planting one foot in the sand, Vivian lifted her opposite leg, sending a swift kick towards Avery's swinging staff. His attack struck her directly on the leg [-4% aura], halting his swing. Not a moment later, her tall rabbit ears that had been turned in Verm’s general direction picked up the fast approaching whistle of an arrow. With little time to move out of the way, she swung her frozen hand down to bat at the incoming projectile. The tip of the arrow struck the wide block of ice protruding from her hand, cracking it immediately while still sending her arm reeling back [-5% aura].

After what had felt like forever, she could finally clench her fist, breaking apart the ice from inside. It was tricky defending against two opponents at once, with the distraction from Topaz leaving her unfocused on Avery in front of her. Feeling overwhelmed with her situation, she abandoned her previous plan and activated her semblance. A faint glow emanated from her opposite palm, which almost immediately materialized into a spherical shape that soon surrounded her hand. The large glowing bubble that had been created from aura remained connected to her arm at the wrist, even as she swung at Avery [6% knockback damage].

It wasn’t too often that she tried to use this ability offensively, but judging by how effective it was at bouncing away even the heaviest of weapons, it could surely be used for repelling foes. While it could have been a good trump card later on in the fight, making some distance between them now could give her the opportunity she would need to turn the fight back around.

Avery didn't expect Vivian to counter his attack with a kick. He didn't expect Topaz' arrow to come in. He didn't expect Vivian to use that arrow to break out of her ice cast. Any advantage that he had had dissolved into thin air, and it wasn't even the end of it. Avery, caught off guard by the quick chain of events, wasn’t aware that Vermilion took aim at him.

Before Avery could react to Vivian, Vermilion’s shot nailed him straight in the head sending a pulse of shock, pain, and disorientation throughout his body. Vivian’s fist quickly followed up, hitting him square in the chest and sending him flying back and skidding through the sand, eventually coming to a stop several feet away. He rose to his feet dazed.

The only silver lining was that she had managed to knock him out of the target zone of Vermilion’s spears.

This time Topaz wasn’t going to fall for the spears appearing out of nowhere trick again, she had already been hit by it several times and the stationary "trap" was near laughable to her and a little insulting. She merely jumped to the side to avoid it without changing her temporary aim of Vivian.

”Sorry Avery!”She yelled out as she watch Vivian break out of his ice arm prison with no small part due to Topaz’s thoughtless arrow, it would have been a great advantage to keep one arm frozen in order to mess with the balance and attack power of at least one enemy. But it already happen so now it was time to beat him without cheap tricks, or at least slightly less cheap tricks. Topaz was preparing to strike when she saw Vermillion launch into the air meaning only one thing, he was going to make more spears likely towards the somewhat closer Avery since he did theoretically come to his partners aid. Topaz decided to gamble her next attack based on her thought process going in with the aim to cause some confusion and chaos which might let they’re half of SALT gain the upper hand in this mostly equal fight. She ran up to Vivian as quickly as she could and right after he struck at Avery Topaz struck at Vivian with kinetic dust effect turned on a small amount, just enough to push him the short distance into what the green eyed fighter perceived as the spears center strike zone.

     "I'm not done with you yet!" Vermilion cried, shooting a rifle shot above him to speed his descent.

     Vermilion crashed down into the sand and although it wasn't how he expected to get into the fight the spear wielder spun his spear in a flourish and charged for the disoriented Avery. The fall took a nick off his aura, but given his current advantage that was nothing. Vivian was free, arrow-girl was...annoying as always, and the boy, whose name Vermilion forgot, was standing there dazed like a drunk.

     With a sadistic smile stretching from ear to ear, Vermilion grunted as he charged towards Avery with another thrown aura spear from his hand, and a finally a pile-powered thrust with his spear. Dust kicked up behind the white haired young man as he ran and found that his footing wasn't exactly the best in the looser ground. His charge wasn't as fast as he hoped but with a disoriented enemy he might as well have walked towards him. Victory was within his sights and he wasn't going to let a tiny bit of dirt get in the way.

The charge that Topaz had started was rather easy for Vivian to notice. She pivoted to face the other girl, raising both of her fists in a defensive stance. Unfortunately, she hadn’t noticed the kinetic dust that was currently loaded into her opponent’s weapon. She sent her glowing, semblance-shielded fist to meet with the strike, only for her hand to bounce right back towards her. The force from the attack carried through the bubble of aura, colliding with her torso and sending her back off of her feet [-5% aura].

After rolling to a stop, Vivian lay on her stomach in the sand, groaning some. This environment was really not working in her favor whatsoever. She began to stand up, but stopped as she reached a kneeling position. Instead of running in to trade blows again, she quickly drew her submachine gun from its holster with her free hand, letting loose a surprise spray of bullets towards Topaz. Her finger only held the trigger for a couple seconds, but with the high rate of fire, she had already emptied half of her magazine. [15 shots, wide spray, 3% damage each]

Even in his dazed state, Avery was still able to get a grasp of the battle, albeit faintly, and he didn't like what he saw. He and Topaz had swapped targets and now the passionate spearman was getting on Avery's case. He used his semblance to force Vermilion’s thrown spear crashing into the ground not too far ahead of him, and as Vermilion came charging in, he attempted to parry his attack. Vermilion’s charge was slow, but unfortunately Avery’s reaction time was slower. Despite successfully getting the block, it was too late, and the attack drilled into his shoulder.

Avery winced and let out a faint grunt upon impact, but instead of falling back to regroup his senses, he exhaled sharply and sent his weapon down along the shaft of Vermilion’s for a counter-hit[1].

Topaz’s attack was successful in knocking down her new opponent, but it opened her up to a surprise hail of bullets from Vivian’s previously unnoticed gun forcing Topaz to duck down to avoid at least some of the bullets ,but they still did a number on her as 5 bullets found their marks on Topaz before she dropped onto her knee. The stinging of the bullets making her painfully aware of how hurt she was now, she couldn’t keep taking hits like this without delivering more. Clenching her teeth Topaz charged forward as fast she could through the loose sand and attacked the arm that Vivian held the gun in with all the force she could muster in hopes of hurting Vivian and knocking the ranged weapon away, if she could do that she figures she might have a advantage on the next couple of blows.

     A successful hit and a counter strike later, Vermilion found himself blocking Avery's strike with his free arm as he pulled his weapon back. The strike was nothing, sure it damaged his aura, but after training with Hannah and Vivian this felt like nothing more than a tickle. "You're going to need to hit way harder than that if you want to beat me." With a scoff and a twist, Vermilion shoved the blade to the side and engaged his weapon's transformation sequence.

     Steel slid against steel as Vermilion's spear compacted into its pile-driver form, and Verm readied for another strike. If one simple spear strike could hold his opponent back certainly a pile driver in the chest would utterly crush him. Snapping his fingers, Vermilion formed four spears behind Avery, their crimson points hovering in midair to threaten his back.

      Vermilion gave no pause, however, and pushed forwards, slamming his piledriver forwards towards Avery's chest with a piston powered spike, a deafening metallic slam indicating the weapon releasing its payload. In the corner of his vision he spotted Vivian release a hail of bullets, seemingly holding her own against the annoying one. That was good, he thought, but perhaps he should join in on the fun later. Maybe he'd get a kick out of picking on the skirmisher again.

Vivian stood up as Topaz went down, the golden glow of aura disappearing from her empty hand. The random spray of shots wasn’t as precise as she would have hoped, but it definitely improved her situation. It had a lot more utility at a closer range… Which made it all the more surprising when her opponent began charging right at her. In that brief moment, she felt a very real urge to unload the rest of her magazine on the poor girl at point-blank, but making that choice could potentially leave her open to the incoming attack. Evading and trying to counter would, she hoped, let her keep a larger advantage.

As Topaz neared her, the faunus took one step back, making sure to focus on keeping her feet steady in the sand. Vivian then slid back, rotating around one leg to narrowly avoid the heavy swing. As she leaned away from Topaz, she suddenly let go of her own weapon, the firearm falling to the ground. After all, that hand needed to be free if she was going to make use of the ice dust loaded into it, still unused since her scuffle with Avery. It was a risky mix-up, but it wouldn’t be right for her to not take such a chance here of all places. With one quick step forward, she clenched her fist and drove the metal towards her opponent’s gut with tremendous force, exhausting every bit of ice dust in the prosthetic all at once. [10% damage, heavy freezing effect.]

"You're going to need to hit way harder than that if you want to beat me."

A pump of adrenaline washed away Avery’s dazed state. The cogs of his mind quickly accelerated, and he was able to see the battle(field) with clarity once again. Since Avery didn’t have much of a chance to before, a flood of thoughts concerning his opponents burst into his head and caused the world around him to stand still for just a moment. Spear-user with semblance included, aggressive, spirited. That was all well and good, but what stood out about Vermilion the most was that he reminded Avery of one of his dueling partners: Annabelle (not pulled out of ass).

Knowing that he had to be decisive if he wanted to win against an opponent that was remotely like her, Avery rallied himself. The world around him was slowly brought back into motion, and the transformation of Vermilion’s weapon clicked slowly at first, accelerating like the clangs of a dropped metal ball. In the same window that Vermilion was transforming his weapon, Avery followed suit though it wasn’t nearly an intricate: he moved his hand up the shaft closer to the head and significantly compacted the butt of the spear.

As the transformation of Vermilion’s weapon neared its end, Avery already had an idea of what it was and what its owner planned to do with it. Avery found it odd that Vermilion would resort to a punch when 1) he had a tactical advantage with his semblance and 2) Avery had just disengaged with his partner whose main weapons were fists (at least when they fought seeing as Vivian had an SMG stashed away).

With Vermilion rearing to life, Avery did as well. He dug his left foot into the sand and pivoted hard, adjusting based on the results of his previous failed attempt, and wrapped his right hand near the base of Vermilion’s weapon as it went by. As he was turning, the spears that were behind him came into view, and while the possibility of pulling Vermilion’s weight through them was nice, Avery opted to take his opponents advice instead. Avery clicked on his semblance, specifically targeting Vermilion’s weapon making it feel significantly heavier, and pulled Vermilion’s weight forward hoping to throw him off-balance. Finally, Avery leaned forward toward his opponent’s massed, as if trying to drive a stake through his heart from the opposite end of his body, sent a heavy stab at the side of Vermillion’s ribcage [1].
