Sakura Kinomoto had been trying to do some investigating of her own. See, Yukito had disappeared months ago and, while her brother said not to worry, she was beginning to get really, really worried.

Now that she had the fly card, it offered her a brand new opportunity. She could fly! So she had been flying over the city(using the illusion card to make herself look like a bird. She was worried, not crazy.

Unfortunately... well... She'd been searching near the karaoke bar when all of a sudden a shadow had fallen over her.

And she'd looked up to see a pterodactyl youma diving at her. She'd NARROWLY avoided being snatched up and had flown off. But... she had ended the illusion and now just flew. Unfortunately, there was now a GIANT FLYING YOUMA chasing the small girl through the city as she flew over head. And she kiiiiind of needed her wand to ride, so couldn't launch any counters without it being able to snatch her when she stopped.

    Minako Aino has had a good day today, getting off from her half day of school. She wants to sing her heat out so she's making her way to the Karoke Crown that Motoki's family owns. She's gonna sing Super Freak or something. Yeah it's that kind of good day!

    This is when she gets within view and oh god is that a dinosaur attacking a young girl. She narrows her eyes. She tried to tell everyone that Jurrasic Park was a warning! And now look! NO ONE LISTENED TO HER!

    She dives into an alleyway and out comes-- Sailor Venus-- as she points. "FLYING DINOSAUR! I'LL SHOW YOU TO BE REBIRTHDED FROM A MOSQUITO'S STOMACH AND ATTACK YOUNG GIRLS!" she says dramatically in an almost justice speech like fashion as she makes a sudden run down the way, yelling at people. "HEY GET OUT OF THE WAY! RUN AWAY! FIND SAFETY! DINOSAUR!" she yells loudly.
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-10 23:19:32 89344
There's a girl in a long hooded jacket carrying a heavy looking sack of books over one shoulder. That slow trudge of someone overloaded trying to avoid admitting they messed up. Or she's just being lazy and wandering back and forth with her phone out, either way.

There's a shadow overhead, but there's a thing on screen. Then there's another shadow, a bigger one, a funny smell and the inkling that something's up. The phone finally gets put away, she spins on her heels and spots a familiar figure somehow flying and then there's a dinosaur. A big one. "Uh..." She offers to no one in particular. She slips into an alleyway, books dropped in a dark spot, hood pulled down to reveal a foxy grin and a mantle of mist!

Rounding the corner, the mist trailing towards her hand and forming a spear, she points it up at the thing while calling out, "HEY!" She's a lot less wordy. Sure there might be some Chinese, some swiping as it flies overhead, some muttering about her lack of flight ability. The works. Maybe she can leap at it when it passes by again!
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-10 23:27:13 89346
Sakura Kinomoto glanced over and... "Sailor Venus!" she said, relief on her features. Oh, good, sailor venus was--

GAHHHHH! She let out a shriek as her moment of distraction cost her. Talons wrapped around her and yanked her from the broom. With aq burst of magic, the wings disappeared and became a wand. She shrieked, banding the wand on them, but it was much bigger than her. And stronger. "Let me go! Let me goooo!" she yelled.

The pterodactyl started drawing her up higher, towards the conveniently placed and high altitude sky scrapers above. "S-sailor Venus!" she called out, trying to break free of the grip.
Minako Aino 2018-03-10 23:36:59 89347
    Venus looks in horror as the talons of the youma wrap around the girl. "Oh dear." she says. She blinks, hey is that Chinese!? Of course a world traveler like Venus knows what Chinese sounds like. And probably some words. Probably not fluent. She says. "Hey can you hit it's wings? That should ground it but it's also holding the girl!" she says to Jiaying.

    She makes a jump upwards onto a low roof. Then a higher roof. She gets as high as she can as she makes a finger gun at the winged youma. "Crescent Beam!" she calls out as a beam of orange-colored energy lances through the sky towards the youma's wings.

    "Come on down! You've won a prize. A shot in the face!" she calls out.
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-10 23:38:27 89348
Jiaying Maki growls and looks around, stepping back into the alley, though this time it's less to leave pieces of kit behind and instead to do that old ninja trick, leaping from wall to wall with a splash of water, rapidly climbing up. As she gains momentum, those leaps become faster and stronger, launching her higher still. Should she catch up, she'd leap out after the thing, hands out, claws ready to grip the dinosaur's hide so that she can try something like steering it lower. Which kind of sounds like a really dumb idea to her, but hey, you have to improvise right?

Still, she calls out, "I can try if this doesn't work!" Glad for the big fuzzy ears to make hearing that viable. She won't admit to anyone that the idea of pouncing a giant dinosaur wasn't something deeply awesome in her mind either.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-10 23:52:34 89352
The youma let out a roar as the beam wrapped its wing. It jarred hard to the right, tugged a bit.

Its eyes fell on Venus... And then it let out an angry cry. It then dove straight at Venus, beak out...

Just in time for Jiaying to come barreling out of the alley and slash onto its hide. It flailed a bit, twisting in the air and the messed up wing didn't help and...

Rather than stabbing at venus, it slammed into the ground BY venus. Unfortunately... that meant Jia and Sakura were slamming into the ground with it. The smaller girl was released and kind of skidded along the ground a bit... "Ow...."
Minako Aino 2018-03-10 23:55:17 89353
    Venus ducks as she prepares to take a hit, but doesn't, because it smashes into the ground near her postion. She jumps off the roof of the building and jogs towards Sakura and Jiaying. "HEY YOU TWO. GET ON YOUR FEET. I DON'T THINK THAT THING IS QUITE DONE YET." she yells out.

    She'll try to keep firing Crescent Beams at still. Pew! pause. Pew! pause. Pew!. She isn't going full on fast fire or anything.

    "Hey big ugly and awful. You still wanna play? Let's dance."

    She's trying to draw all attention on her for a moment. Maybe it'll ignore Sakura and Jiaying for a moment!
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-11 00:00:23 89354
Jiaying Maki goes for quite the tumble-roll-thud thanks to the momentum of it all. There's a string of definitely not-happy Chinese best left uncensored as she lay there trying to both catch her breath and orient herself. There may even be swatting at those pesky birds. That only she can see.

The shouting does get her to focus long enough to roll over, push herself to her feet and remanifest that watery magic, starting with a staggering-run towards the creature, the 'blade' of the water trailing behind her before she suddenly brings it up and overhead to smash into the creature where it splashes into nothingness. Sure it was an attack, but she's mostly hoping through her daze to stun that thing too so that she can help the formerly flying girl away from it's flailing!
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-11 00:10:45 89357
The youma was distracted, alright. It stood up to its full height(that had to be at least ten feet. Oh my gosh.) And stared down at them. And then whips. It let out another roar as it stumbled back from the assault. Then a blow of water! Ow! It stumbled back and flailed its wings out!

Sakura groaned, but slowly got to her feet. At least she was okay. Alive. And the thing wasn't facing her...

It then charged forward. It lunged forward, spreading its wings out...


The beak flew STRAIGHT at Venus.

And then, about six inches from her. Stopped. It flailed a bit, before letting out a roar again, loud thing. Sakura... had it by the tail.
Minako Aino 2018-03-11 00:24:08 89359
    Sailor Venus rears back and gets ready to punch it--instead. It gets stopped with a roar. "Huh?" she says softly. "Awwwww. The girl's got it held. I was gonna punch it." she says. "You know what. I'm still gonna punch it." she says as she flies forward and attempts to uppercut the giant flying youma in the underbeak.

    "Hey fox girl!" she says. "Are YOU okay?" she calls out.

    "I think this thing needs punched back into the amber mosquito." she says.
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-11 00:33:29 89360
Jiaying Maki rocks back on her heels as she realizes Sakura had done just fine getting away from the thing. She rolls her shoulders, drawing the magical water back to herself where it rests near her shoulders and arms. Her hand goes up to her head, runs through her ears and with a bit of a sway, she says, "Wo hen hao xiexie." Then stops, looks around, repeats herself, "I'm fine I'm fine, thanks."

"Punched into a mosquito?" She finally asks, catching that odd turn of phrase. She shrugs it off and when Venus punches it back, she twists in place and lashes out with a sharp kick that's supported with a jet of water on impact. It's very pretty in a rainbow sort of way. And completely unintentiona.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-11 00:37:03 89362
And the pterodactyl was kind of distracted. Just turning in time to...

Sailor Venus uppercut and sharp kick of aqua from Jiaying!

It flies up, but Sakura still has its tail, so... She yanks it back and spins, holding on the dazed, confused and rather achey youma.

She spins a few times and then RELEASES!

And it flies through the air, hitting the side of a building and dropping to the ground a few moments later. Eyes all @.@. Time to finish it off.
Minako Aino 2018-03-11 00:54:00 89365
    Venus winks at Jiaying. "Good then." she says as Sakura throws it into a skyscraper, what!? She blinks. "Woah!" she says. "You flung thing hard." she says. She then she begins to chase after it with a jump over a car, because of course she's gonna step over the car instead of around it!

    It's her heroic right, darnit. She ten whips out her chain, from around her waist.

    "Venus Love-Me-Chain!" she calls out before the chain erupts like a firey orange whip of energy in her swing into the beast to try to finish it off!
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-11 00:59:20 89368
Jiaying Maki is standing there laughing for a moment as the monster flies off. She stumbles to the side, almost falls back. Catching herself, she starts to chase after Venus, though she does manage to hop the car though she stops at the other side to watch the chain erupt and wrap around the creature. There's an idle thought in her head that she needs to work on that, an idea forming there. It's a touch addled, but she'll... she begins to pat herself down. A notepad is pulled free, something is written down, then she leans heavily against the car.

"Are you two okay?" She asks, starting to properly get herself in working order. Her hood is pulled up, the mist and water disappears with the illusion restored. And... then she looks back to Sakura. "I remember you. Why do I always run into you falling into something?" ... Should she be watching the monster? Maybe she's not done being stunned.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-11 01:05:37 89370
The beam of hearts hits the pyerodactly and, with a flurry of dark energy, the animal is gone!

Replaced with a man in a dinosaur shirt, unconscious on the ground. Sakura turned towards Jia and then blushed. "W-well, I mean... yeah..." she mumbled. "But I have the fly card, now! So that should help keep me from getting hurt when I fly! Usually..."

She then glanced towards Sailor venus... and stared. Oh my gosh she was SO COOL! She couldn't believe she was lucky enough to run into her. So lucky! So, so lucky! "H-hi again, miss Sailor Venus ma'am!" she said happily, giving a little wave.
Minako Aino 2018-03-11 01:13:52 89371
    Sailor Venus watches the giant youma turn into a man. Wait. What!? It was just a NORMAL monster!? Lame. "Ugh! I thought for sure it was a dinosaur!" she says to no one in particular. "WE'LL MEET EVENTUALLY JOHN HAMMOND!" she yells out.

    "Oh!" she suddenly says. "Hi!" she says. "Hold on a moment." she reached behind her and into her bow and fiddled around magical subspace for a bit before revealing an autographic picture of Sailor Venus as Sailor V, signed Sailor Venus! The V is for Venus!, it says. "Here!" she says with a wink.

    "But oh god I used all my singing time and I need to get home." she says with wide eyes. "BUT HEY Foxgirl, what's your name?" she asks before she actually dashes off.
Jiaying Maki 2018-03-11 01:20:20 89373
Jiaying Maki tilts her head towards Venus again and asks in confusion, "Hammond?" Looking completely lost. She does lurch to her feet to make her way over, making sure the guy in the shirt is okay. "I don't... usually see this kind of thing. Should we call the paramedics and leave? Or at least his family? Bet he's got his phone on him right?"

Standing up, brushing herself off, she looks back in time to see the signature being handed over. "Uh..." Is all she can offer to that. Head tilted, she asks, "What did I miss?" Being more than a touch dense sometimes. "K-something right?" She asks Sakura, "Are you okay? I guess this isn't as bad as acid at least."

Then there's the question. She perks up, says cheerily, "Please don't say that too loud, I don't want people to think I'm cosplaying." Beat, "Jiaying." then a shrug. Everyone else knows, she's not hard to find. "You?" She tries, unsure if that's going to get a response. She seems happy though.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-03-11 01:52:47 89374
Sakura Kinomoto nodded, smiling to the two. So amazing. Wait, singing? OH MY GOSH! Sailor Venus had been singing? She almost asked to come hear sometime... then realized. "I'm late!" she shrieked. She then turned and ran. "Thank you Miss Sailor Venus! Thank you Miss Jiaying! Sakura! Sakura Kinomoto is my name! It's great seeing you again!" Before she ran off. She was gonna get... a very minor scold.
