Riventon Is A Jerk

After 'Direct Withdrawl', Haruna takes Alexis back to the ECFH to do some first aid and talk about Riventon because he's a big jerk.

Alexis has gotten a severe case of the 'Riventons' that Cure Gull defines as being blast in the face by Riventon. Sadly, this means you hurt a lot and maybe bleed and your magical armor is a mess.

So Cure Gull lands on the balcony and peeks in. She remembers something about a party happening- it seems over now. Things still haven't been returned to their proper places, probably. And maybe there's still a party mess lingering. Regardless, she calls out. "Heeeey, Alexis got the crap beat out of him by Riventon I dunno who's here but I'll leave a note later." she calls out.

"Okay. Do you have a room here. I don't wanna plop your bleeding but on Mamoru's nice sofa if I can help it." she says sheepishly.

"And besides you're still conscious. Right?" she asks.

"Right?" she asks, peering.

Notably, Stahlritter - Alex - didn't actually let himself be carried along properly initially. But when it came to vaulting along rooftops and what have you, he changed his mind pretty quickly. He *still* doesn't know how to make himself fly, afterall. He's a terrible mage like that.

Once they get on the balcony, he's likely left slumping in between her and a wall, at that, and he's perfectly quiet for a moment.

Until he suddenly grumbles, "I beat the crap out of him," indignantly, voice a bit strained under the effects of the poisonous dark energy blast, head slumped downwards. "Woulda won..."

Nevermind that a good quarter of his helmet is missing and the eye revealed from underneath is forced shut by blood caked over it and his Knight Armor is an utter *mess*. Not to mention the arm he isn't using to lean into Gull's support -- all bloodied and hanging limply by his side, the bones in it likely *super* broken.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 13:01:41 91016
Cure Gull can fly. The wings come built in.

She sighs and says. "Anyways." she says, carefully helping him. "Let's get you to your room. Then I'm gonna have to do something just to be sure he didn't like. Infuse crap into you. Then we'll clean you up!" she insists.

"Don't worry. I'm used to this!" she says. Regardless, wherever Alexis tells her to stop, she'll help him down and then crosses her arms.

"Okay, hold on a moment." she says. She pulls out what looks like a weird mobile phone and then says. "Hey Corvus, I need you a moment--- ugh let Takei handle the register then." she says. Regardless, she puts it away. "I'll need him to check you out." she says.

"I wouldn't let the armor drop yet if you can hold out jussst a bit longer." she says. "Can you do that?" she asks as she leans down with concern.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 13:06:45 91017
"Nnnhhh, my folks failed pumping me full of that stuff already," he grumbles from underneath the helmet while he's helped along towards the direction of his room. "He's... welcome to try..."

Once into his room, he seems happy enough to slump down into the bed-- or, well, not all the way anyhow. He insistently scooches his way along it to support himself sitting against a wall.

While the eye that is actually bared out from underneath the broken helmet remains closed, she can probably tell that underneath the remnants of the golden visor, his other one is still staring faintly at her when she leans over and asks that. ":.. I think I'll survive," he murmurs. "...Somehow. It's what I do."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 13:11:00 91018
Cure Gull shrugs. "All I know is that when I get beat to hell and I drop the act, I basically immediately pass out." she says. "or close to it." she says. "I'm all woozy still from doing the whole angel thing myself." she says. "That always takes a lot out of me." she says.

Corvus is a seagull but Alexis already know this so he flies in through the balcony and seeks Haruna out and lands on Gull's shoulder. "He--- wooooah what happened." he asks.

"Riventon." Gull says. "Ah." goes Corvus.

She suddenly picks up Corvus who squawks a moment and she points him at Alexis. "Scanning for lingering dark energy, boop, boop, boop." she goes. Corvus sighhhhs. "Oh, fine." he says as he rolls his eyes as he looks at Alexis. Did Riventon leave anything nasty behind seems to be goal of this.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 13:21:10 91019
"I don't... nnngh... mind if you have to sit down too," Alexis mumbles, writhing along the bed just so to try and get his messed up arm to a more comfortable position resting over his lap, wincing from just that movement alone.

He gives Corvus a bemused look once he's there, but he at least stays quiet and still for a moment. Being good enough of a patient to let himself get scanned without an issue-- there's probably something still lingering, but nothing too severe. All things considered, he's takinng being blasted by a full powerf dark energy attack phenominally well.

"Tried to stop him..." he manages to murmur then, quietly. "Grabbing... that thing... dunno what it was... some... gem. Woulda... managed it... if he didn't have help..."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 13:36:30 91020
Corvus shrugs. "There's something there but nothing purification worthy if he just rests for a night." he says as he squirms a bit. Gull finally lets him back on her shoulder as she crosses her arms.

"Ah, so he was after something specific. Seems the money was just a bonus for him." she says with a sigh as she taps her forehead.

"Yeah. Those things are creepy." she says. "I bet he has some sort of comical mad science machine that churns those out though." she says.

"So basically. You need to rest." she says as she says, as she takes out her PrettyChange!Mirror.

<T--time to change!> Nurse!

Haruna appears, suddenly, in a nurses out. Complete with medical first aid kit and she plops it down on the nearest hard surface. She pull out some cotton balls. And alcohol from it. And get to cleaning that eye lid carefully. Because the Nurse Precard grants some careful abilities like that where she isn't kludging it all up.

"Ten to one he needs the gem for some nefarious purpose. I'll tattle to Ami-chan about him and she'll go get angry at him." she insists.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 13:52:25 91021
"I'm not... really good with... resting," Alex points out with a grunt. If Haruna knows Alex at all - and she does - this probably does not surprise her *at all*.

"I figured... as much back then..." He murmurs on the matter of Riventon's purpose at the bank, very much choosing *not* to comment on the nurse outfit Gull has suddenly adopted. It's probably good most of his face is concealed, though-- he is still a boy, and there's probably a lot of blushing going on there. "Why I... went after the things in the back... but then he just.. showed up. Out of nowhere. RIght in front of me. He didn't move that... fast before so I don't know how..."

His brow twitches a bit when she dabs at his bloodied eyelid-- and then a snort rumbles out at the mention of Ami. "Tell her... to let him know he's welcome... for the broken shoulder and concussion too..."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 13:58:57 91022
Haruna is cleaning Alexis's eye. Trying to clean out the caked blood. She's doing fairly well at this. She sighs a bit and says. "Riventon, as far as I'm able to tell, has enough dark energy in him to survive safely in the 'Dusk Zone'. Like all the other jerks I fight." she says. "He's basically just a 'Dark General' that doesn't answer to anyone I think." she says.

She steps back. "There, that should be better." she says. She crosses her arms.

"Anyways that's why he's probably able to move fast. Basically you can just be wherever you want by making a skip through it in like a second." she says.

"Scorn used to do that." she says. "That's kinda why I know." she says sheepishly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 14:02:35 91023
"I don't... know..." Alex mumbles, wincing a bit when some of the sanitizing alcohol gets into a cut on his forehead. "It was... a split second, and he was... instantly putting that attack on me. It was... beyond just fast..." Gears grind in his head. Trying to put pieces together.

WHen she steps back, he brings his good hand up, idly brushing a metallic fingertip along his forehead before he sends a peek down at his left arm.

"...Can you get me something to sling this thing into?" He asks of her. "Probably... gonna need a cast until I can get healing magic."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 14:08:59 91024
Haruna reaches into that first aid kit and provides a sling. She'll begin to fix it up around Alex's neck and arm carefully. "There you go." she says. "I'm not... a magical healer. The nurse card just kinda gives me that first aid kit and some basic knowledge of how to do things." she says. "They're weird like that." she says.

"I can't cast it though." she admits with a frown.

"Um. I'd check with the houses guys for healing. I'm sure they know someone." she says. "But everyone seems vacated and uh. There was a party apparently. Dunno what's that about." she says.

"Yeah. So. What's with the armor again, anyways?" she asks.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 14:17:20 91025
"Ow, ow, careful-- I might not be able to move that arm but it still *hurts*. It basically got blasted by an improvised magic claymore mine." His *own* attack at that, but he's not mentioning that part.

"Don't... worry..." He murmurs thrn, before slumping back against the wall with the arm properly slinged up. "I know... a lot of people who can. I have two of them on speed dial." Oh good.

He swuints at her over the question, however. "... What's that supposed to mean? Isn't that like asking you, 'what's with the dress?'"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 14:22:56 91026
Haruna Kurosawa scoffs. "I could tell you but it's a long and probably not fun story for me to tell." she says. "I mean. Where'd this new magic come from?" she asks. "Cuz last I remember you we're feeling kinda helpless about this stuff and now you're suddenly Sir Beefcake, Lord of the Beefy." she says smarmily.

"That's basically what I'm asking." she says as she Nurse transformation flips off suddenly and she's just regular old Haruna Kurosawa. Then she practically falls over. So she finds a place to sit fast. "Whew." she goes.

"Yeah I'm tapped. Sorry Corvus-chan you got the shop tomorrow~" she says.

Corvus rolls his eyes.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 14:40:11 91027
Alex kind of stares at Haruna quietly for a moment. It's hard to tell with the helmet, but he seems sheepish. "... I've been called worse," he mumbles eventually, sounding embarrassed.

"Anyway..." With a flash of light, the armor, helmet and whatever is left of the longcoat fades away, replaced by his usual hoodie and jeans... suppose he gets to find out now if clothing damage carries past the Henshin too! Not that he seems abashed either way.

"Don't remember if you were told back then, but when I was saved from my folks' lab, they grabbed a Device with then my parents were appsrently intending me to use when I became their tin soldier..." His right hanf is held out, showin the bracelet centered by a red gemstone upon his wrist.

"Haruna. Meet Belkan Armed Device Kriegsfauste."

Cue a LOUD synthrtic voice piping out, "GUTEN TAG"

"He sent that text message to you for me, too. With him, I am Stahlritter -- the Knight of Steel."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 14:45:58 91028
Haruna Kurosawa makes a face. "Darn. My Belkan translator isn't here right now. But that's probably for the better because Unity Loop would probably annoy your device." she says. "Unity Loop is... a Lost Logia of sorts. Intelligent but safe. It's job is to combine usually incompatible powers into a compatible power to power something." she says. "But she's also very excitable because she likes to make 'friends'." she says.

She leans down. "I'm setting her up on a date with Hannah's device. I want to see how device dating goes." she says conspiratorially as she leans back up.

"...nrg." she mutters. "Yeah. That's an apt term for that." she says quietly. "That kind of stuff. I can commiserate with bad parents though." she says with a sideways smile.

"So Stahlr..." she "Stall..."

"'Ritter." she says. "I'm calling you 'Ritter because I can't pronounce that all the time." she says. "That okay?" she asks.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 14:57:03 91029
"...He pretty much just said 'hi', don't worry about it," Alex assures Haruna, with a sheepish smile. "What do you mean, though, with... combining incompatible powers?"

Then, he suddenly laughs out at her words when she leans over. "Ahahaha... Hannah's Device already tried to have a cyber fight with Krieg, so... Ow... ow..." He winces, suddenly, and stops laughing. "...Okay so laughing hurts. Good to know..."

"THat's fine, though... STeel Knight is fine too, if you prefer... it's basically what it means anyhow."

Another quiet wince, and he lowers his hand. "...I guess I should... report back to some folk... Do you wanna stick around while people come talk about what happened, or do you want me to wait until you're okay to skedaddle?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 15:04:03 91030
Haruna Kurosawa says. "I am legit gonna need to sit for a bit before I try leaving." she admits. Corvus nods matter of factly. "So I have nothing better to do. But if you need to go, that's fine." she says.

"I wonder who's party happened thou. Oh god I hope I didn't miss like one of the guys birthdays I'd feel so /bad/." she says with wide eyes.

"Coffeeshop is doing good~ Remember you're always welcome there and I have a secret bunker in the basement if you ever needs a place to lay lower than you are for stuff." she says.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 15:08:15 91031
"... I am super not going anywhere either, 'Runa," Alex points out with another laugh that just prompts another pained wince. "If anything... Prolly gonna be sitting still longer than you are. So more... if you wanna deal with more people than just me and my ugly face."

The wondering about the party makes him roll the shoulder of his good arm. "Some girl named Sora, I think... They mentioned it to me but I didn't really feel comfortable sitting in on some party of a person I don't know. I'm not... a party person. So I went out to try to gather more intel on my parents instead."

The offer from her, that brings a smile from him. "Thanks... But I have a safe place here, too. But I'll keep that in mind in case I ever need a quick hiding place and you're closer."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 15:26:00 91032
Haruna leans in. "Knock three times on the broom closet door and it'll open into steps rather than a broom closet." she insists. "But don't tell anyone else that~" she says. "Should only come from me." she insists.

"Sora, okay." she says tapping her bottom lip. She gently sighs a bit.

"Right. But just in case, like I said." she says.

"Riventon's a big deal threat though." she says. "He's gonna ruin your day a lot everytime and he's probably gonna try to steal your device because he thinks everything belongs to him. I bet he tried. Did he try?" he asks softly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 15:37:34 91033
"... HE did say something about it probably being wasted on me," grumbles Alexis, with a scoff of a sound after. "The rest was mostly grunts of pain from the punching and headbutting I laid on him. MIght have been able to do more if it wasn't for the faceful of dark energy and what have you."

He grunts again, and shifts himself uncomfrtably along the wall and bed. "Ever see Jojo? Because next time I see him I'm gonna go all Jotaro up on his ass."

"Krieg--" he grunts then, with a look sent down to his right wrist. "Send... messages to Ami, Kaz, Rashmi, Mamoru, Norie and Daisuke. Just say to come meet me in my room whenever it's convenient for them. No hurry."


He winces, and directs an apologetic smile at Haruna. "...Sorry. He's kind of... got issues with volume control."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 16:03:02 91034
Haruna Kurosawa smiles. "I'm used to loud. Unity Loop has voice control issues too." she says with barely a wince. "Also you know, I'm engaged to Hannah 'I'm very loud' Sharpe, so." she smirks.

"I haven't watched JoJo no, but I know what you mean~" she smirks a little bit.

She huffs. "Ugh. That form drains me. I know physical damage sucks, but emotional drainage sucks, too." she says with a frown.

"Strong, awesome power but I'll collapse after." she mutters.

"......" she purses her lips. "I wonder. What'd happen. If I use my new ability on Riventon..." she says quietly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 16:08:59 91035
"Of course," Alex chuckles in amusement. Of course she'd bused to loud with Hannah. Alex is probably just too used to making excuses for Krieg being loud with most people.

He turns a curious look over 'Runa then, however. "I wasn't really there to see it," He murmurs. "TOo busy breaking most of my everything in the back rooms. And then breaking Riventon's face. So... what ability is that, exactly?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 16:19:53 91036
Haruna Kurosawa shakes her head. "I didn't. Use it last night but.."

"...Alright so. Pretty Cure. The ones that work with Kami-sama. We collect these cards..." she says. "Like the Nurse one I just used." she says. "And we're given a... binder of sorts. The Precard Decor. Where they go." she says. "-and are stored." she says.

"When we fill the binder. We earn a wish. No strings attached besides fighting badguys that we're supposed to fight anyways." she says. "Basically. It's like the complete opposite of a Puella Magi's wish as I understand it. A wish we earn by doing things, but we can 'stop' if we want... we just won't earn the wish." she says. "And nothing terrible will happen and so on."

"I mean, you can make a bad wish. And karma will backlash. We are warned against that. It's why... no one's just wished The Phantom Empire away." she says.

"Anyways. I earned my wish and... I... wished for. Hannah to have her powers back. Because her linker core wasn't regrowing on it's own after her junk one she'd infected and ruined was sucked out." she mutters.

"And when we wish. Our Prebrace disappears. Because it represents a step forward. And I don't need to spin something to do an attack now." she says.

"But we also get. A new ability--- a something that lets us do something and it's always kind of based around the wish." she says.

"In my case. I have a powerful kind of.. purification. It kind of tries to reset someone's mindset back into... precorruption." she says softly.


"Riventon's never NOT been corrupted. He's always been like that since he was born." she says quietly.

"So I'm wondering what would happen." she bites her lip.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 16:50:16 91037
Alex considers that, in a long, quiet moment of thought.

"WOuldn't he just... cease to be, then?" He suggests, solemnly. "If that is how he always was to begin with... then that would take something away that was there for the longest time, was a core part of him. Wouldn't he just... die?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 17:10:49 91038
Haruna Kurosawa shakes her head. "It doesn't... decreate. It's meant to purify corrupted people. I'm wondering if it'd have any effect on him then. Or. It might give him a glimpse into not being part horrible dark jerk." she shrugs. "or it could kill him yeah." she says meekly.

"S'why I need to be careful who I use it on. Most monsters have always just... been monsters." she says quietly.

"But." she says. "Like."

"When I fight the Phantom Empire guys... sometimes. If you push them hard enough. Drive up their emotions. They ... say things." she says. "Something out of the ordinary." she says quietly. Like. Maybe the human they used to be peaked through just for a moment?

"Because those guys used to be people. I dunno what happened with them." she says quietly. "Blue-sama doesn't really know how it works. And I dunno if I wanna find out." she says quietly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 17:20:38 91039
"... So it's probably not exactly safe to experiment that one on people who you think you could, maybe, somehow, save someday," Alex notes with a faint wince at that particular thought.

"One can hope like that, anyhow, yeah?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 17:37:49 91041
Haruna Kurosawa sinks into the couch deeper. "Yeah." she says softly. "I'm not talking experiment but. Maybe it can help later." she says. "That's bad. I'm not a scientist or anything." she says softly.

She sighhs and shakes her head.

"Riventon thinks he's doing good for the world though. I've spoken to him before. I mean, me and Hannah-chan visit his lab sometimes to force feed him because apparently he just sits in his lab for days at a time when he's grumpy and not eat." she says.

"Just his way is wrong." she says sourly. "Power and darkness isn't going to save the world." she mutters.

"Right. I caught him beating up Sakura-chan for cards? But he was in some feathery robe and had like a weird staff? I dunno what's up with that." she says.

"Also he's /beating up lil-sis for her cards/." she says sourly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 17:59:38 91042
Alex narrows his eyes at all that. SQUINT.

"... It doesn't matter how much good he thinks he is doing," he mutters, with another groan as he tries to straighten up from his slumped posture. "In my experience, people who do *less* shitty things than that are already considered grade-A assholes who deserve to be beat the hell up and tossed into police custody or whatever the magical world equivalent is. He was already threatening to kill that ten-year old back at the bank, no matter how magical she might have been too. If he's beating up Sakura too like that..."

He clicks his tongue. "Maybe I am just not as nice as all the people I get the impression of they're trying to save him. But next time I see him I am going to punch him a *lot* until he can't walk anymore. With absolutely no hesitation."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-05-01 18:04:00 91043
Haruna Kurosawa sighs. "If you think you can, great. But all that means is it gives him more lab time and that's when he always comes up with something stupid." she says softly. "and yeah...." she frowns a lot.

"I should.. go now. I need to rest in bed. And Corvus-chan needs to get back to work." she says softly.

"Will you be okay until someone who actually knows how to heal you shows up?" she asks softly.
Stahlritter 2018-05-01 18:06:43 91044
"At some point one has to be more than just reactionary too, with things like this," is all Alex says to that, with a deep frown.

At her question, he nods his head slowly. "I'll be okay," he promises. "It's just... some scrapes and bruises." YEAH SURE ALEX. "You take care, okay? I get that you were drained pretty bad there. ... And. Thanks for bringing me here."
