[ Good afternoon, Johto. Y'might be greeted to an odd sight today as Xion's Gear comes alive thanks to Bell the Togekiss (who somehow has managed to work it despite not having any... arms, per se). ]

Hah! Yah!

[ Wooden Keyblade in hand, Xion's swinging at an invisible enemy like this. A jump, and she tries an air combo. Least she's not doing any of the fancy stuff she knows, and even if she could, her now human body would make it difficult to do so anyway.

But the expression on her face... and the amount of force it looks like she's putting into the swings... Someone hasn't had a good night nor sleep, that's for sure.

She stops when Axel the Typhlosion walks into view. Training time? Don't we all love some training time! Xion goes into a stance until Axel fires a spurt of bright, hot flames at her. Dodge roll, then she swings at his chest, but obviously makes sure she misses on purpose. She doesn't want to hurt him.

A minute or two of this passes, and somehow, Bahamut the Gible scampers into view. He bumps into the back of Xion's leg, making her stumble slightly, distracting her enough that she can't stop Axel from swiping her wooden Keyblade out of her hand. Clattering to the side and out of reach, Xion only has a few moments before Axel swipes at her again. Guess what happens when you take a Keyblade out of their wielder's hand? Especially when she can't summon it back...

No hand-to-hand experience, either. She tries to block the blow, but then he just... headbutts her. Bearing in mind Bahamut is still behind her, she tries to fall where she doesn't squish him.

Thud.

Xion: 0 | Axel: 1

She lets out a shuddering sigh, maybe a bit frustrated, but not at Axel or anything. At least Bahamut walked out unscathed as he comes up to her face and licks her cheek, but she doesn't move herself from the sandy floor. ]


I need to change this.

[ Seeing all this, Bell thinks the spectacle's over and shuts the feed. ]

[Lightning had just happened to be passing by as the fight was ending, and was watching as the fight ended in Axel's favor. Xion obviously was used to using a sword or something close to it, but had no experience in how to fight without it. It certainly sounded familiar...

So Lightning was just going to walk over, mindful of the Typhlosion and the Gible, and peer over at Xion.]


You alright?

[ She blinks at the familiar face, and tries to spring back up into a sitting a position. ]

Yeah, I'm fine. [ Going to stand and dust her clothes of sand. ] Uh... you saw all of that?

...You might want to start training with a low level Fighting-type, instead of a fully grown Typhlosion.

[ Blows at her bangs. She's not even bothered that Bell must have recorded all of that for others to see her failings. ]

I don't have one.

Boy, that could've gone better.

[ Sighs again. ] Yeah...

[...Oh, Xion. That's a pretty nasty situation, and Riku was just passing through.

After a moment, he sighs and approaches her and her team. Flare's right behind him, as his his irate Garchomp, who's being prodded along by his Weavile.]


Looks like they might've gone overboard.

[ Bahamut senses kin and looks up at his future self(?). Axel just stares at the newcomers while Xion sits up. ]

Just a bit. [ She rubs her head. ] Hey, Riku.

[ She's starting to think it's getting easier differentiating between Roxas and Ven. She thinks. Blinks up at him.

Gotta make sure, though. ]


Ven? [ Hm, a bowtie. She is pretty sure Roxas doesn't wear those... ] Hey.

... You were trying some rather ambitions maneuvres there, young lady.

Oh... um. [ She can't tell if his observation is a good or bad thing. ] Sorry?

[... She's torn between being impressed that she could handle herself that well for so long and wondering if she's okay. But she remembers her from when she first arrived here too so...]

Ah--! Xi-- [it was Xion, right?] Xion! Are you okay?

[ Blinks, recognizing that voice and face. ]

Ranka? It's been a while. [ Shyly grins a little. ] And yeah, I'm fine.

[Minnie quietly comes into view, very worried.]

Xion...?

[ Uh-oh. Xion glances up, then springs into a sitting position almost as though she was caught. She wasn't, right? ]

Oh, Minnie. Um... [ ... right? ]

Training would go better if you actually had sleep.

[He could see right through that.]

[ Blinks, surprised he could easily tell. That, and... the familiarity again... It's strange, really. ]

... I couldn't help it.

[She doesn't know about training much, but that fall looked painful. She scrambles over to Xion with a bag of ice cream in one hand, a Phanpy close at her heels with her Piplup sitting on top of it]

Xion!

[ She turns her head to where Namine's coming from and slowly sits up as she approaches. ]

Oh, hey, Namine. [ She slightly waves at the Phanpy and Piplup. ]

[Atsuro haven't spar against someone before, but he knows a tired expression when he see one.]

Xion, you okay?

[ Pheeeew... goes her long sigh. Perceptive people could just tell, huh? ]

I am. I think. [ A pause. ] I'm trying to be.

[ She notices Xion's negativity within her and frowns sympathetically.

She doesn't like to see people frustrated so she'll ask in a calm voice. ]


Xion, what's wrong?

[ Still, it's not like she wants to worry people much. There'd be better things to worry about... not that Xion would voice that out loud. ]

Just bad dreams. It's not the first.

[ Padding down to the beach from the house after seeing the feed. What is that he has with him? If you guessed 'a handmade sandwich', you'd be right! ]

Axel's got a mean left hook. [ He looms over her, looking not too worried. He extends a hand. ] You all right?

[ She's staring at that sandwich for a bit longer than she'd like, but she nods before taking his hand and standing. ]

I'm fine, thank you. [ Rubs her head a bit. ] Hi, Leon.

[Guess who is entirely pinged by the image of something looking like that Princess girl using a wooden Keyblade?

Hi Xion, you've attracted a troll.
]

You need to work on dealing with a foe that disarms you. [Since lol he knows she couldn't summon it right back since... sup, we're all keybladers here.]

[ This guy... she wonders about him. ]

Yeah. I'm going to ask someone to help me on that.

[ She turns and greets Saber with a slight smile before sitting up. ]

Fighting without my weapon. [ It's a half-truth of sorts. ]
