New Relations, New Family [CLOSED]
« on: November 24, 2018, 05:19:17 PM »
Even without competing in the Vytal Tournament, the whole spectating experience was an exhausting affair. Thanks to her brother’s first 2v2 match and Prism’s match against a Smokey Emberstone being held one after the other, Jocelyn wasn’t able to take a breather before diving into cheering for the next round. Though she unfortunately wasn’t able to get seats next to Prism, she could still clearly see the overexcited faunus leap into the air after the team fight had ended and the familiar gust of wind even reached her across the stadium. After that Prism’s relatively one-sided match with Smokey came next, the faunus leader creating a tornado of fire out of thin air - literally, scorching the poor opposition. Once again, proof that size didn’t always matter. Jocelyn had never been so proud in her life, and her uncharacteristic loud squeals of joy forced the entire rows above and below her to cover their ears. Only the lack of Steam Flower on her back prevented her from taking to the skies like Prism had in the previous match.

Now, the unusually hyperactive medic waited impatiently outside the room where all fighters went after each battle, to ensure that no lasting injuries were inflicted. The normally quiet Jocelyn was completely unable to control herself, pacing back and forth in front of the shut steel sliding door like an anxious mother waiting for news of their daughter, though not for the same reasons - this time, Jocelyn had a surprise planned. She just didn’t know how it’d work out. Just then, her scroll buzzed, temporarily ceasing Jocelyn’s pacing. Tugging the device out of her pocket revealed a message from her brother, who had just escaped the confines of the medical room after taking a nice long dive in a freezing pool.

<Overprotective> just got out, waiting 4 u at food hall
<Overprotective> thx remnant i managed to ditch calen, think he’s ill from swim

Jocelyn smiled at the second line, remembering a previous conversation where the contents were just half an hour of Setsuna offloading his steam about stuff he had to deal with, most of it Calen. Typing into her scroll she replied:

<I need healing> Be right there, I’m still waiting for Prism
<I need healing> Great match btw
<I need healing> You feeling ok from the dive?

She won.

No matter how you frame the match, no matter how the analysts break it down or angry fans criticize her methodology, there’s no doubt Prism won. A literal complete wipe that left Prism with a near-complete aura. Not only had she almost had a perfect match, but she’d managed to summon one of the strongest windstorms she’d ever created - turning it into a literal firestorm from the smoking remains of Good News’ first on-screen delivery. Despite the acrobatic complications of her first match or the raw fire power of her opponent in the second, she’s undeniably earned her place in the semifinal rounds for the Vytal Festival.

She’d barely dared to dream of coming this far, much less actually making it. But hey, in the end, size wasn’t everything.

So there she was, barely pausing in the recovery room for the world’s fastest shower and a change of clothes that didn’t reek of smoke. Thankfully, she had her spare combat outfit lying around - still had to make a good appearance and all.

Hooking Hawk’s Eye to her waist once again but foregoing the usual goggles, Prism exits the recovery room with the click of her heels echoing off the metal corridor floor. She pauses for a moment at the site of her teammate tapping away on her phone, and a grin grows across her face - and she honestly just can’t help herself.

”Josiiiiiiiiie!”

Jocelyn would only get a moment’s warning with Prism’s uncharacteristic high-pitched squeal, before she’s promptly tackle-hugged by a rush of feathers. ”I won! I won! Holy shit, I’m in the semifinals, holy shit- I won!”

<I need healing> Don’t be so mean to Calen, he’s jusjdakndtoppwemjiagprd

Jocelyn’s typing to her brother was forcibly cut short by a even more hyperactive ball of feathers barreling into her at top speeds, crushing her Scroll to her body as Prism threw herself into a really, really tight hug. Despite the intimate contact bringing color to her cheeks, Jocelyn returned the hug in kind, stumbling back a few steps from the force of impact. She could still smell the faint scent of wood smoke from the fight, feel the smooth, supple curves under the new change of clothes on her skin, but ignored all that as she lifted Prism up into the air and spun her around like she would a newborn baby. ”I know! I was watching the whole thing you did so well oh I’m so proud of you!” Jocelyn squealed, ignoring the curious glances from the numerous onlookers.

Once she eventually set Prism back on the floor and picked up her scroll, her medical instincts automatically kicked in and she began looking over every inch of Prism’s body without any evident concern of privacy. ”I know you’ve just come out from the checkup and I know you barely got scratched but are you feeling alright? No signs of being lightheaded, stretched muscles, any symptoms?” Jocelyn asked, her own protective side clearly showing.

All Prism can really do is hug her friend as she’s picked up and spun around, giggling like she was drunk. “Nope! Right as rain - I got oughta there with like, 95% aura! I managed to completely wipe out Smokey’s - did you see the size of that fire tornado, like just- holy shit! I knew I could do that but I didn’t think I could do that!” She raves, taking a step a back and gesturing a bit wildly in reference to the match. She’s honestly a still a bit drunk on her success - but frankly, could you really blame her for that?

Eventually though, after bouncing on the balls of her heels for another couple minutes, she manages to calm down and give Jocelyn a blinding grin. “I could hear your squeal from the stands you know - just barely, but still! Thanks for cheering me on, and- oh wait, how’s Setsuna and Calen? They finished just before me, right?” She suddenly starts, remembering the previous match. “There was a lot of… underwater action, so like - I know nobody drowned, but still. How’re they holding up?”

<Overprotective> wut

"One's better than the other." Jocelyn replied, smiling straight back at Prism. Smiling truly was infectious. ”Setsuna got off alright, the last attack stole what could have been a 100% Aura victory away from him, as well as most of his breath. I’m glad you didn’t get hit by any of Smokey’s attacks. But Calen is now ill from what I’ve heard.” she said, frowning at her last sentence. Whatever her brother thought of Calen was his own business, but she felt like Calen ought to be cut a little slack.

”Anyway, you wanna come with me to grab some food? Think Setsuna’s already got us a table, and I’m starving to try some Atlesian cuisine. Hopefully it’s not too spicy to counteract the cold here!” Jocelyn said, peering at her Scroll and snorting at the jumbled mess of letters she involuntarily sent her brother.

<Overprotective> also yea im fine thx for asking

<I need healing> I’ll be over soon

“Fuck yeah, food sounds fantastic.” Prism answers, still excited enough to be bouncing on the balls of her heels. She just seems to bypass the news about Calen - she saw the match, it’s only kinda logical he managed to get sick after getting his skinny as soaked clean through.

“Frankly, spicy sounds kinda great right now. Or anything with like, a fairly high amount of carbs. Or caffeine. You know how my metabolism works, flying burns a fuckton of energy, and- ah, shit, I’m rambling aren’t I?” She says a bit sheepishly, cutting herself off halfway through the sentence. “Y’know what, enough words. Lead the way, I have no idea where the foodcourt is from here.”

”You know I’m always more than happy to listen to your ramblings, Prism!” Jocelyn laughed, still high off the adrenaline from watching the match - though if this was what she felt, Prism must have the equivalent of ten gallons of caffeine from winning her match. As they began the trek to the food court through the pristine white hallways filled with the bustle and chatter of the numerous other people, her excitement slowly began to fade to her more calm, usual self, and she began to observe her surroundings instead of just having 100% of her focus on Prism. Plenty of booths selling tasty snacks, the odd souvenir shop, smoking rooms, even a indoor heated pool. If they didn’t have a place to be, Jocelyn would gladly take a dip and relax.

”Oh, here we are.” Situated in one of the numerous large branches, even the vast food court couldn’t house the crowds of spectators eager to grab a bite before the next match, and the place was crowded. Lining the edges, stores offered nearly every single cuisine Remnant had to offer, with Atlesian food taking a small but well-populated corner of the hall. With so many people stuffed into one space, Jocelyn just couldn’t find her brother.

<I need healing> Where are you

<Overprotective> look up

She did just that and found that the crowd had cleared a small path, which - sure enough - led to a table where Setsuna sat, waving his arm and beckoning them over. "Hey sis, and good to see you again Prism! Congratulations on the wins so far!”

Prism deftly follows Jocelyn through the crowd, weaving carefully despite still coming off her adrenaline high. As happy as she was, it didn’t escape her notice that she was the target of some pointed hands and low whispers - probably the result of being one of the latest victors in the recent matches. The overexcited kids pointing wildly at her though made it all worth it, and the sight of their eyes bulging out of her head when she waved back, well -

It was totally worth all the glares old Atlesians farts had to offer. Thankfully though, they’d reached the table by that time.

“Yo, Setsuna! Thanks man. There were some pretty tense moments, not gonna lie, but I managed to muscle through.” She states proudly, jokingly flexing a bicep to emphasise her (lack of) muscle mass as she took the seat across from him. “You’re not doing to shabby yourself though - congrats on your doubles win with Calen!”

Pulling out a spotless metal chair from underneath the table, Jocelyn took her seat to the right of her brother whilst plucking a pristine menu from a small indented slot in the table, clearly meant for holding all the essentials. Meanwhile, Setsuna was clearly happy about the complement, judging by his beaming smile. ”Maybe my slight lapse in judgement wasn’t the best choice to make in a fight,” he chuckled, ”But I’m still quite happy with the results. Nearly came out of that with full aura if it wasn’t for Smokey’s last-gasp attempt.” Swiping his hand across his face and body to show how much was hit, he covered over half his chest and head. ”Would not recommend getting hit by that cannon, ever. Thankfully you didn’t have to learn the hard way, Prism.”

Meanwhile, Jocelyn was paging through the menu looking for something that suited her fancy at a rapid pace. ”There’s too much to choose from, I can’t decide.” she jokingly complained as Setsuna waved a waiter over to ask for water, holding up all 5 fingers. ”Here, Prism - what do you want? Don’t worry about the price, consider it a victory gift for getting into the semifinals!” she said, winking at Prism to show she hadn’t forgotten the events that occurred the first time they went out together.
