{M} The pen is mightier than the sword

I can feel my soul turning with the clouds

Adrestia was wandering again through these lands. Her Companion was perched on her back. And then she came across a muddy stretch of land. It didn't take a former Combat Medic to realize this was a fighting Arena. She had fought in similar flat-ish places before. The only thing that made it different was the muddy ground.

Her poor silver pelt was about to get ruined.

She stopped in the center of the Arena, her body facing westward. The sun was behind her as it climbed to its apex.

Steliana took off, flying fifteen feet above her in a tight circle. While most daes were bound close, bird daes could move further away to fly. They had tested the limits before these lands. But this seemed an okay distance. Her wings were spread wide to fly, her eyes were wide to see, and her legs were tucked close to her body.

She let out a call for an opponent for a practice spar. And then she began setting some of her defenses. She had been a warrior before. However, she set only certain ones as she didn't desire to start a real fight if someone got the wrong idea.

Her head was held high to see her opponent coming and she didn't think her throat would get ripped out. Her jaw remained closed in case some asshole opponent decided to tackle her. She'd rather not get her lip cut. Her hackles were smooth as she didn't feel like she wanted to intimidate anyone yet. Her stance was widened and her legs were bent. Her ears remained errect as she wanted to hear better. Her eyes were wide to see. Her long tail flicked back and forth. Her muzzle was smooth as she didn't desire to be aggressive. However, her claws were unsheathed to dig into the muddy Arena ground.

RE: {M} The pen is mightier than the sword

Mononoke Abernathy


It had been soooo long since the woman had any practice with spars. Mononoke needed to get out and do that more, so that was where she was heading. Straight for the arena, she remembered a very long time ago she went to spar there. Would anyone show if she went? As she wandered, she was nearly there when she heard a call anyways. Perfect timing, right? With long horns striking the air in all their glory, wings held closely at her side, she attempted to come face to face with Adrestia around eight feet away. Her stance widened, tail immediately shot out for balance as her knees bent. Her mismatched eyes narrowed in on the woman in front of her, ears flattening back to protect them. Her head lowered to protect her mouth, jaw unhinged in preparation to bite.

Her hackles didn't rise, nor did she wrinkle her lips as she saw no need for it. This was only practice, there wasn't a need to look intimidating. However, in her position Mononoke offered a smile. "It's been awhile for me, so take it easy on me, okay? I also have healing magic, so if either gets hurt on accident I can help out." With that said, she attempted to activate panic on the woman in front of her. Meanwhile she scanned the environment, it was muddy. Gross, she sure hoped her short little nails would aid her in this but she highly doubted it. Plus, if she needed it the woman could always change into a tiger. But this time she wanted to see how her magic could do against someone else.

RE: {M} The pen is mightier than the sword

An opponent came soon enough. A small canine with peculiar antlers and protrusions. Her opponent stopped eight feet away from the snow leopard and the she-cat faced her head-on. She also had wings too? Adrestia hoped that this wouldn't turn out to be an ariel battle. She couldn't fly.

And then, she was overtaken with Panic. Her heart rate quickened and her body was starting to shake. She was starting to get tunnel vision as adrenaline coursed through her veins.

Her eyes were narrowed as she tried to focus. Her hackles stood on end as she was Panicked. Her tail flicked back and forth in Anxiety. Her jaw was opened to pant as well as to be ready to bite. Her stance was widened with her legs bent. Her ears were flattened. However, her muzzle remained smooth. She lowered her head to protect her neck. Her unsheathed claws dug into the Arena's muddy ground.

Above her, her Companion flew fifteen above her in a tight circle. She could feet Adrestia's panic. Her eyes were widened, legs tucked to her body, and wings spread to fly.

Adrestia attempted to activate Dart from eight feet, attempting it to be aimed directly in the center between the bi-colored eyed of her opponent. She hoped it would stun the woman.

Dart 
"The user is able to create, at will, a dart of pure energy and simultaneously shoot it up to 50 feet away. Though this arrow cannot pierce flesh, it can do one of two things. It can either stun a target for a single post upon impact, leaving behind a light cut where it hits. Or it can knock a creature backwards five feet, in the direction the arrow is moving, leaving behind a small cut. This power, unlike others, may be used twice per thread."

Mononoke Abernathy


The woman's defenses remained, stance widened and knees bent. Her narrowed eyes were locked upon her opponent, through flattened ears she heard no reply to her words. To each their own, some may prefer not to talk as much as others which was alright with her. Her hackles were still flat, muzzle smooth as well as this was just practice, she had no need. Her head did remain lowered, jaw parted as well in preparation to bite. Her tail remained flagging out behind her for balance. As far as she could tell, the panic had worked on the woman. Two more defenses were raised from the snow leopard, wrinkled lips and raised hackles. The only reason she noticed was by how close she was watching the woman.

However, she flinched when something stung directly between her eyes. Dazed, she lost all track of thought. Blinking here and there as she wavered on the muddy ground, nearly slipping as she teetered to one side a bit too much. She managed to keep herself upright, but barely. In the midst of it, Ripple attempted to activate. If she had been thinking about it, Mononoke would never use such a power in a practice spar. It was strong, it could very well hurt someone.

Ripple

RE: {M} The pen is mightier than the sword

Adrestia felt bad for a moment as she hit the female. The Panic disapated, making her wonder where it came from.

But then she was launched off of her feet and went flying backwards. Because her jaw was opened, her right fang pierced her bottom lip on the right side as it closed. As she traveled the ten feet, feline instinct took over. Her limbs spread out to stretch the loose skin between her limbs and torso1. Her flexible spine twisted1 as she tried to realign her body with the ground as she went into a backwards somersault during her time in the air. When she landed now eighteen feet away from the dog, she didn't quite stick the landing and her underside hit the muddy ground. There were going to be bruises along her belly. And it hurt like a bitch. And her fur was muddy now.

She rose to her feet, facing the woman head on. Oh this was how the female wanted to play? Her head was lowered but her jaw remained closed in case the female tried that again and to grit her teeth in pain. Her ears were flattened and her muzzle was wrinkled. Her hackles were raised and her tail flicked back and forth. Her stance was widened and legs were bent. Her eyes were narrowed, focusing on her opponent. Her unsheathed claws dug into the muddy Arena ground.

She wanted to tackle the female but those antlers and protusions were something to be afraid of. She didn't want to get impaled. But the dog was small compared to her. She decided to take her chances.

She attempted to close the distance of eighteen feet between her and the dog in a single leap2 with her jaws wide open, attempting to grab the base of the dog's left antler in her jaws and simultaenously thrust her head downward. This was not going to be kind to her aching body and bloody lip.

RE: {M} The pen is mightier than the sword

Mononoke Abernathy


The daze seemed to begin to wear off, she shook her head as she realized what had happened. The power that she had used made her frown, why did she do that? What happened? A light cut remained between her eyes, stinging softly. Her eyes narrowed on the snow leopard, they seemed to be okay with nothing broken. That was good, but it seemed she was okay enough to keep sparring. Mononoke reset her defenses after the daze, ears flattening and head lowering to protect her throat. Her stance was widened upon the muddy earth, knees bent for balance. Her tail flagged out behind her to help keep her balance atop the muddy earth, her jaw was unhinged in preparation to bite. Her hackles remained smooth and so did her lips, this was only practice.

She caught the women sprinting forward, however, the canine didn't move but she did attempt to activate totem. Adrestia would manage to snag meat on the front center of her chest, and with downward motion it would rip. Leaving a wound upon her, blood began to drizzle and she released a hefty growl. Thus, Mononoke would attempt to reach down and grab hold of the snow leopards scruff while simultaneously attempting to push down. Her claws were now unsheathed in order to help her keep grip on the muddy ground.

And then the dog went from dog to a whole fucking tiger. And Adrestia thought she was screwed. She managed to tear a chunk off the she-tiger, something she didn't expect. She felt bad for a moment and then some massive tiger jaws came down on her scruff and she was pushed into the muddy ground. Gods, her pelt was going to look like shit after this. She was now looking at the woman's paws as her body should be still facing her.

Her ears were half-flattened due to the tiger's grip on her scruff. Her legs were bent though it was arguable if her stance was widened since her underside -- with all of its bruises -- was brushing the ground. Gods, that healing magic the girl was talking about better be good. Her head wasn't lowered nor was her jaws open because her head was close to the ground as was the rest of her body with maybe an inch between her chin and the muddy earth, and quite frankly she didn't want even more of her coated in mud. And her bottom lip was still bleeding and she didn't want to risk infection. Her teeth were gritted from the pain of her bruised undersides and her bloody lip. Her eyes were narrowed and her muzzle was wrinkled. Her hackles were raised and her tail flicked back and forth in anger. Her claws were unsheathed for traction and she was stuck on what to do.

This now tiger was a lot larger than the snow leopard. Her luck was shit right now. There wasn't much she could do. So she decided to use words. Her voice was muffled as there wasn't a lot of clearance between her chin and the muddy ground and she didn't want her open wound to make content with the mud.

"How the fuck are you a tiger?" She asked and once she finished speaking, her mouth was shut. Simultaneously and unbeknownst to her, Fatigue would attempt to activate on the tiger.

Above them, fifteen feet in the air and in a tight circle above of Adrestia, Steliana flew. Her eyes were wide, wings spread to fly, and legs were tucked close to her body. She wished she could help but she wouldn't risk touching another. And she hoped that the tiger would let go. She could feel Adrestia's pain in her bottom beak and her undersides.

Verdict: True to points, Mononoke is the winner of this spar! It was a valiant effort from both parties; super easy and fun to read, I loved it. Just a side note, however, is to remember that moves in which require the first to be successful must be made when this is proven true. All in the wording, doves! Otherwise, ya'll did amazing. <3
