It had been a while since she entered, seeing how she had missed the signups of the previous tournament. This time she had been quick enough to enter, apparently there had been seventeen entrees. More than usual, Silv had viewed the signups and recognized some names while others were completely unfamiliar, much like her current opponent, one or other 'Olette', whoever that is. Doesn't matter, really, she was only in these to cut up some people, she'll be the executioner and if the rules had allowed it, her opponents' heads would be rolling.
Walking out in the open, Silv came upon the arena ring, hearing the strange goatman make his announcements, he ignored his words completely while focussing her eyes at the other side. Her opponent would show up sooner or later. "... corner is Silv Sannerou. From rumors she apparently is one of these 'Heartless' while to me she doesn't really have the appearance..." Silv raised an eyebrow and turned her head for a moment at that announcement. Well, it hadn't been like I hid it, but where did that rumor sprout from?
It mattered not, she was trying to find Stroud for one, destroy the worlds for two, take everyone's hearts for three, and enjoy the slaughter of everything for four. Maybe there were more goals, but they mainly involved the other ones. Her only interests lie in bloodthirst after all.
Silv held her axe's handle firm in both hands and turned back to where the opponent would come from, staring coldly ahead. Her axe started to gather Darkness for the Dark Beleaguer.
---------------------- actions 1. gathering Darkness into her axe
Olette's mind was abuzz with thoughts as she entered the ring. She wasn't really positive how she had got here, or...why she had signed up. Just for a good time, she supposed. The crowd around the stadium was roaring, eager for a fight, and Olette nervously waved to them all. Nobody on the sign up sheet had looked familiar to her, besides Axel. She wondered how he was, last time she saw him he had dragged Kairi away, but Sora had come back and explained things to the trio.
Gripping her Struggle Wand tightly, Olette cautiously approached her opponent. The character certainly looked formidable enough, and Olette gave a small smile as she listened to the announcer: ...on the other side we have Olette, a messenger from Twilight Town who makes up for strength with agility! Then there was some more about formalities and the battle commenced. Olette wasn't really sure what to do, but she saw her opponent readying an attack so she prepared to dodge and block. First things first, she had to get to know the fighting style of her opponent, then she could attack accordingly. With trembling arms she held her Struggle Wand up, hoping for the best. It was just a game, after all.
Staring across the arena, Silv's expression slowly turned dull. This due to the appearance of her opponent... who looked like some little girl. Still, she supposed she should not be judging people too easily. Preferring to keep charging her axe for now, she gathered more Darkness into her axe while letting go of the handle with one arm. Still charging her Dark Beleaguer, but moving her axe a bit more back while taking a ready stance.
Lifting her free arm, a Dark aura happened before she spread her arm towards Olette and a stream of Darkness was fired in a straight line at the girl to wash over her, using her Memory of Dark. It was only a medium tier spell, so mostly to test the girl in seeing how she'd react and if it did hit, Silv wasn't expecting the girl to be knocked out already.
Other than this, she felt a preference to observe the girl for the moment. Her reactions would decide Silv's next course of actions, next to this, Silv still had some abilities to avoid attacks she wouldn't be expecting from the girl.
------- action i. continued to charge dark beleaguer action ii. used memory of dark on olette
------- active dark beleaguer - 2 posts charged
cooldowns memory of dark - 2 posts
TAGS: olette NOTES: the dark beleaguer attack will be more powerful depending on how many posts silv charges darkness into it, without any charge its at tier 1 level, 1 post charged is tier 2, 2 posts charged is tier 3, and so on, so its now equal to a -ga spell, she can charge up to 5 posts
Olette noticed the rather strange looking lady (although she wasn't one to jugde) gathering some sort of power into her weapon, and Olette had battled enough that she understood the implications, a power attack was sure to follow the gathering of energy. Now she had to figure out a way to cut off the power attack or she was sure to get struck with a knockout blow. It was around this point in her thoughts that her opponent shot a stream of darkness towards her, which snaked forward at lightning speed.
Narrowly avoiding the attack with a quick leap to the side just in time, Olette chided herself mentally for not paying attention. That was the only real perk she had. Olette wasn't really strong or magically talented, but she had been a messenger for years and was fast, coupled with a surprisingly high resilience made for a tough opponent as far as defense, but for offense...
"Fire!" Olette shouted, launching a small ball of fire towards her opponent. It was really more for distraction than anything, as Olette could tell this would be a tough fight, and there was only one attack she figured would be effective against her opponent, so she began to plan for how she would execute her tactics, eyeing the woman cautiously and preparing to dodge another attack if the time came.
Powers Used: Fire
Notes: Poor Olette, what did I get her into. Next time Kjell will be the victim. XD
Staring at the girl as she avoided her attack narrowly made Silv snort in disgust, then a small fireball was sent her way and she wasn't very pleased whatsoever. Why was a child even taking part in this? Ignoring the small fireball, the woman suddenly dashed forward. Her aim was straight at Olette as she gripped the handle of her axe with both hands in her sprint.
Running right into the fireball, she ignored any damage it did as it smacked into her, instead her sprint was only slowed a small bit before continued at full speed. As she got nearer, the Heartless woman made a full sweep with her axe in a horizontal line as she used the Dark Beleaguer. The Darkness she had stored into her axe appeared in the air as if she split open the air itself, the cut flew forth while Silv changed her sprint into a leaping jump forward, flipping her axe in her hands as she brought the entire weapon above her.
The leap closed her distance as she cleaved her axe downward in an attempt to split the young girl into two while the Dark Beleaguer was flying at her from in front of her as a large wave. Silv had the intent to just quarter the girl, the flying cut going horizontal and the axe going down vertical. She couldn't care less if the girl died, but she wasn't expecting her to actually be split into four pieces from these attacks, but it should do a good amount of damage if either hit.

A number of thoughts raced through Olette's head as her opponent suddenly raced forward. She raced through the fireball Olette had cast and that honestly freaked her out. This opponent was willing to take damage in order to move forward and attack. What’s more was that she looked serious, really serious, and Olette could tell a strong attack was coming which she wouldn’t be able to dodge easily, so she had to use a new tactic in order to avoid taking major damage from the upcoming attack.
The attacks were flying towards Olette in a crosshatch pattern, so she got into a steady stance (which she had perfected from fighting through crowded streets to deliver messages), held up her struggle wand right at the intersection for a block and ducked her head. The attacks hit her hard enough for her to slide back, but the effect was definitely lessened from its original amount. Now that Her opponent was closer, Olette used Strike Rush, swinging the struggle wand down for a moderate physical attack and then casting “Thunder!” in a weak ring around herself before leaping back quickly.
Olette hoped at the very least she could eventually wear her opponent down, and she might even get in one powerful attack at some point, but she desperately didn’t want to be eliminated in the first round. Luckily after years of fighting through crowds and running all day, not only was she fast but she was harder to wear down. This was sure to be a long match if only for the mixture of her opponent’s offense and her own defense. Now she had gotten a bit of a handle on her opponent’s fighting style though, so she was prepared to block and evade to the best of her advantage for as long as she could. There was definitely something off about this woman…something unhuman, further illustrated by her manipulation of darkness, but for the moment Olette couldn’t decipher what that off feeling was about.
Powers Used: Strike Rush (Lvl 1) Thunder
Notes: I gotta get her lots of munny to buy new powers like Summer Job ogmf
Also I mean...Olette's 18 yo...she's a WOOOMAAAAN no she's still a child lbh ;-; this poor girl.
Interesting enough, the girl seemed to use her wand thing as a shield and managed to avoid the full impact. It didn't appear that she could just chop the thing in half. Spreading her arms and sliding her hand over the axe's handle, she moved from her attack quickly to defense when the girl swinged the wand at her. After this, she pushed herself off the ground, hopping quickly back when the girl casted something. Seeing the ring, she simply smirked while throwing her axe back, having let go with one hand. It just seemed it was best for a moment to create enough distance for this next attack.
Letting go of the handle, the axe slid through her hand and finally grabbed the tail. Turning her arm in circular motions, she started to spin the axe by way of the tail before throwing her entire arm forward and letting go, the axe started to spread Darkness all over it as it turned into a large oversized disc, using her Black Disc attack to throw her axe in the manner of a frisbee at the girl.
From that point, Silv just watched the girl, Olette, to see what happened next, but as she was now unarmed, she still started to move back into close range. Moving, thus, forward after her axe while keeping track of her opponent.

TAGS: olette NOTES: summer jobs a power? also, to silv olette is a girl, she stopped aging at 23 years old and shed be around the 30 now, 18 is young
The woman was strong, really strong, but Olette was clever. Her opponent avoided damage from her attacks and began spinning the axe, creating a large black spinning disc. This wouldn’t be easy to block, and Olette couldn’t just run in circles forever, so there had to be a compromise. Olette finally had a plan, and as for immediate action…
Olette cast “Blizzard!” towards her opponent, immediately spinning her wand quickly like a baton before throwing it, using Baton Twirl, not at the woman, but at the disc, hoping to disrupt it in some way. Other than that there was nothing more Olette could do at the moment, so she simply kept her distance to avoid being hit by the axe. She would be safe for now so long as her opponent didn’t close the distance. Olette was definitely more suited for ranged attacks, which she could easily dodge. Closer ones were harder, but as long as she kept the stubbornness she had while maneuvering through crowds she wouldn’t be that easy to knock out. Then again, neither would her opponent.
If only she had bought a new camera, it seemed to blind opponents who were weak against light, so she had to remember to get one. For now, though, Olette kept to a safe distance, catching the wand and making sure not to get cornered. Maybe she’d get in a few good whacks with the struggle wand soon. "You're a good fighter!" Olette managed to say, hoping her opponent wasn't taking the fight personally and hoping to at least say something to this strage woman she was locked in combat with.
Powers Used: Baton Twirl (lvl 1)
Notes: "Summer Job: Olette has thick skin from all the angry customers she has to deal with! Acts like Shell, and if Olette is really annoyed, can nullify the effects of an attack because she's not taking anymore crap." From Boo.
Sorry it's short, not really much Olette can do. ;A;
Well, this didn't go according plan. Her attack flew at Olette and she tossed an attack her way as well. She only moved her arms as she took the hit from Blizzard with a 'tssk'. She had already dashed into the previous Fire spell, so there was some damage, but not a lot. Is she just going to keep throwing weak attacks until I get hurt badly? It mattered not, but when watching her 'disc' move, the girl seemed to disrupt its flight and it gouged out a chunk of the arena in its flight. Sadly missing the girl once again due to the disruption.
The girl seemed to avoid being hit constantly and her axe was now at the other side of Olette. Leaving that be for the moment, there was still a distance between the two. The girl had used her wand as a boomerang and was holding it again. Looking behind the girl, she could see the axe crashing into the wall. Oh well, it didn't worry her. Instead she focused on the girl, who started to compliment her. Silv raised an eyebrow. "Hmph," she raised an arm, rather irritated at the fact that the girl was still keeping her distance despite Silv not wielding her weapon.
"And you're a dead fighter soon," she snarled angered before Darkness blasted out in a stream again, Silv reused her Memory of Dark as Darkness bursted out in a stream towards Olette to see if she could blow her away this time. But she was assuming the girl to move out of the way. After this her body started to gain a dark aura as she activated Aura of Persistence, starting a dash forward at Olette.

Olette frowned slightly at the woman. That wasn't very nice of her, but this was a battle so Olette didn't blame her really. It was now that a stream of darkness shot forward, but it was ranged and Olette easily dodged. Her opponent had learned, however, and easily planned her next move, suddenly rushing forward. There wasn't really much Olette could do to dodge, so she took a steady stance and swung her wand at where the woman should be by the time her wand got there.
Her opponent didn't have a weapon but was still dangerous, and Olette was ready to defend. She hated close range fighting, and this new power made her opponent faster and much more dangerous, it would be hard even for her to match her opponent's new abilitiy, but at this point it was just pure stubbornness that kept her fighting, "Maybe I won't be as dead as you think I will be!" She said, holding her wand defensively. She would wait to attack, as of now she had to see what this new power could do.
As of now Olette's health was still all right, she had taken a few good hits but her resilience made it hard for her health to go down quickly. For a moment Olette realized she was the obnoxious opponent who was hard to beat because of defense but never really attacked so her opponents sort of had to just chase her around for a long time. She kinda felt bad.
Continuing her dash, it appeared that her attack was dodged once more. Dodgey person, let's see how you dodge this, Silv thought as she watched Olette take a stance rather than anything else. In her hand a black sphere started to shape and just before Silv got in close hitting range, she punched her arm forth.
In the punch forward she crushed the Dark Seed and caused a shockwave all around Silv. "Eat waves!" Hoping to throw Olette back through the shockwave. Then a Corridor to Darkness opened in front of her for her next attack. Having planned this out, she hoped the girl would start dying.
Dropping out of the Corridors above her, her axe reappeared in her hand through Ghastly Recall and slashed it down at Olette.

After years of fighting, a calm eventually washed over the worlds with the death of the previous threats. However, those walls of peace were all crashing down with the warning of a future threat. Though, the warning comes with much skepticism.
Could every keyblader be destroyed?
