The final chapter of the War with the Recluse. Michiko leads a team against the first entrance and they encounter the Recluse Head Medic, Kaguya Fumiko
Poster's note: foul language filtered in obvious places.
"The Recluse War - End Game (Team C)"
Land of Fire
Weather-wise, the combined forces of Konohagakure and Kumogakure couldn't ask for a better day. The sky is clear and the air is cool and crisp, without being overly freezing. A staging area was set up by the Uzumaki Fuinjutsu team, who was sent here both as an apology and as support to help with the traps made by fuinjutsu. Of course, given the three known entrances into the complex, this team would be stretched rather thin, but they would be able to supplant the hidden villages' own recourses. Uzumaki Tenken is here, directly leading the Uzumaki force. He gives a basic reconnaissance of the area. The enemy is holed up in an underground bunker which has two "somewhat visible" entrances, and a third sealed entrance. It is likely the third entrance is either an escape route, or given the nature of the seals present, an access point for Hironubo, the Uzumaki in actual charge of the Recluse.
There's some strange signs of what perhaps is a rally point between the first two entrances (though the second entrance is actually designated 3 because its the one with all the heavy seals), though no one can figure out what that area actually is for. The entrance dubbed #2 is directly opposite the main entrance, while opposite the entrance #3 is a large lake. It is unlikely the Recluse would escape via that route, or so the recon evaluation shows….
Michiko glances around at everyone that's with her. Hmm… The girl makes a few seals, then places her hand on the ground, resulting in a black fox appearing. "I want everyone to watch out for everyone," she starts. "We'll start attacking once everyone's in place." Meaning the other teams that are there. She focuses her chakra, and Kimura does two, the pair of them glancing over her team. A lot of familiar faces, and most of them Kumo-nin. Basically everyone /but/ Zankuro. "Naruko-san, keep an eye on Hisomu-san. Raion-san, try and keep with Zankuro-san. And Yori-san, you'll be working mostly together with Sado-kun." She glances to her former teammate with a slight nod and can't help but wonder why the heck he's always so busy that she never sees him.
Yori was ready for this. He'd prepared upon hearing the details of what they would be doing and made sure he had plenty of rest so that, when the time came, he would be able to assist as well as possible. The young Saito has his sword at his side and his vambraces ready. Now that they were there, well, he was a little nervous, but the Recluse were bad folks so who wouldn't be? As Michiko gives out her instructions he nods before moving over closer to Sado. The Saito says nothing for now, but stares intently at the area ahead of them.
Moving up next to Michiko, though back a bit, Hisomu looks at Michiko and seems slightly agitated by that statement. She then looks forward and frowns. Some part of her seems to ache today and she has a feeling she knows what part. She focuses on her chakra as well as the chakra of what lives within her, pulling it forward and then seeming to have an inner argument as she focuses. She rolls a shoulder and then rolls the other before glancing back at the others here. She pulls her lips in slightly before pushing them out, pursing them at all those with them before she looks forward and nods softly to herself, "I can handle this." She states softly to no one in particular.
It was a surreal moment for Naruko. She knew very well what the circumstances of this mission was, and she would do anything to make sure it was completed today. She merely sage nods to Michiko, taking things far more seriously than she normally would have. She knew keeping an eye on Hisomu would be necessary but at the same time maybe now was a good time to see what she could do on her own. "I'm not going to baby sit you, Hisomu-chan. So becareful okay?" Naruko states, her tone is slightly belittling but she is obviously teasing. " We are all fighting together so don't think that you have to give in too much."
Zankuro pauses in his idle chewing of what appeared to be straw, and focused his full attention on Michiko upon hearing his name. It takes another good moment or so for him to catch-up, what with the beautiful weather being so dang distracting 'n all. Who could blame him?! They shouldn't be wasting it killing some uppity yahoos, but partying! Or maybe just having a nice little get together.
"Hmm… That'd be nice." He states offhandidly while stroking his chin, wondering once more into la-la land. Was it an unproffesional move on his part? Maaaaybe. But noone is really paying attention to the rotund leafer chuunin garbed in dark blues really, right?
Raion was prepared, as was Pansa. Raion grins as he listens to instructions, and when told to keep with Zankuro, he nods, and looks to Zankuro… Assuming he can easily figure that out. If not he takes a moment to figure that out before saying, "I've got your back." Raion really doesn't seem to care about Zankuro's distant behavior, maybe he didn't even notice… Pansa and Raion both focus Chakra. And checks that his metal claw-extensions are firmly locked into place. Didn't want them to slip off!
Sado stands there cracking his knuckles. It had been some time since he had been out on an important enough mission to get pumped up for, and he certainly had a bone to pick with any bad people. He looks over the rest before his eyes fall on Michiko. Brief flashes of simpler times, when the two of them used to spar in the training facility run through his mind. They had come so far, especially his friend, and now was the time to see just how much more powerful she had become. He would certainly be keeping an eye on her during the fights to come. He looks to Yori and nods in introduction, a friendly grin on his face. "Let's do this."
As the Uzumaki team starts to tear down fuinjutsu traps, it becomes quickly evident this is a fortress. So far, no one has come out to greet them, but the sheer number of seals that the Uzumakis had to break down was… frightening. In fact, their progress was rather slower than expected, mainly due to the volume and complexities of the traps. "Cancer, they chain linked some of these…" one seal practitioner said after having three traps almost blow up in his face. "I would get ready to charge in as soon as we get there, some of these seals are only deactivating, not going down." Turning toward Michiko, he hands her a tag, "If you see a large seal array with the different phases of the moon in there, place this tag on it. It should deactivate all the seals in the room." He doesn't ask for much, does he?
RP: Michiko transforms into SIZZLE-IV.
COMBAT: Michiko focuses 8582 stamina to turn it into 12000 usable chakra!
RP: Michiko uses SUMMONING-TECHNIQUE-III.
COMBAT: Kimura focuses 7258 stamina to turn it into 9000 usable chakra!
Michiko watches the seal team work on removing the seals, frowning when some of them blow up in their faces. "Be careful," she simply says, unable to help. These seals were a bit /too/ complicated for her to understand. Then she glances to Sado for a moment and can't help but tease gently, "Finally come out of hiding? You better not have gotten worse, Sado-kun." Then she takes the tag one of the Uzumaki gave her, tucking it away so that she can set it down somewhere easily. "Hai," she simply says, focusing her chakra enough so that a faint aura of chakra suddenly shows up around her.
Kimura focuses her chakra too, and lightning sparks along the black fox's fur. It's colored blue, like most peoples' chakra. The fox growls faintly, ready to start tearing into these baddies.
COMBAT: Yori focuses 3352 stamina to turn it into 4000 usable chakra!
Yori glances to Sado once more, staying fairly near the other boy for whenever things got started. His golden-brown eyes watch the seal people do their work with silence, his eyes attentive to their actions and noting certain things as he tends to do. When they give Michiko another seal he frowns slightly, not liking the sound of what they said. That means they won't have taken all the seals down. That could prove to be quite bad…
COMBAT: Hisomu focuses 4216 stamina to turn it into 6150 usable chakra!
RP: Hisomu transforms into FOUR-WINGS-CLOAK.
Looking to Naruko, Hisomu frowns and then looks forward. She listens to what is happening but doesn't seem to care. It isn't her place at the moment. She is just breathing in and out slowly, letting outside distractions fall off as she speaks to the beast within. Chakra flows over her body and form, slipping around her as her own chakra level goes up considerably. She focuses on the four wings that flow from her back made of pure chakra. Her hardening skin and her darkening eyes. When they open again there is a redness to them that can't be denied. She looks around finally and then breathes out a slow breath that as a chittering growl behind it before she haunches forward slightly, "Ready." Her voice buzzes within an insect like quality.
COMBAT: Naruko focuses 5162 stamina to turn it into 8000 usable chakra!
RP: Naruko transforms into NIBI-MINIATURE-BEAST-FORM.
Naruko needed to stay as far away from seals as possible… Being terrible at them was one of the many reasons why she ended up in Kumo rather than at their home in the first place. Instead she just continued to focus her chakra, her cloak began to envelope her body in an azure dark blue hue, two tails flickering out from the back while her features became more feline…eyes turning into mere slits, her nails, slightly more claw like. At Hisomu's frown she merely smirks and shrugs her shoulders, turning back to look briefly at both Zankuro and Raion. "Are you two ready?" Naruko asks curiously while offering a thumbs up. She definitely was.
RP: Zankuro transforms into RISING-ASHES.
COMBAT: Zankuro focuses 4054 stamina to turn it into 5000 usable chakra!
No amount of happy-happy daydream juice can keep the Sarutobi blind to the rising pressure of chakra all around him. Sure, he felt a few nudgings up until this point, what with them being so close to the seal team, but nothing quite as potent as the present! Zankuro's jaw drops while his gaze looks from the transformed Michiko, to that of not one but /two/ Jinchuuriki.
'Just what type of team did they put me on!?' He thought, mouth closing gradually into a crooked grin. After getting that type of shock to his system, the Sarutobi knew that the time for day dream has passed. After taking one last deep breath of air, the young man slaps his cheeks, letting it all out with the word "Yoshi!" being exclaimed. A different kind of calmness can now be readily seen in his face. He turns to Raion (vaguely recognizing him from the last recluse mission) with a grin before focusing forward as chakra rapidly built up within the mobile reactor.
RP: Raion transforms into PANSA.
COMBAT: Raion focuses 5024 stamina to turn it into 6000 usable chakra!
Raion stands at the ready, seeing a lot of people activate their more powerful forms made him a tad jealous… He had nothing. Just his natural skills and Pansa. His usual grin fades slightly, and when Naruko asks if he's ready he nods. "Yep. Ready as I'll ever be. I just hope I can actually be helpful. I kinda feel weak in comparison to most of the people here."
COMBAT: Sado focuses 4289 stamina to turn it into 5000 usable chakra!
Sado smiles at Michiko and gives her a thumbs up before he focuses on the task at hand, moving towards Yori as well so that they are grouped. For now the boy will stick with the basics, focusing on moulding some chakra to be able to use in his jutsu and leaving the rest of the preparation for when they actually start. After all, he didn't want to run out as quick as he did when fighting the Raikage, that wouldn't be very helpful to anyone. He looks at Yori just as the boy? frowns and pats his shoulder. "Don't worry, we got this." he says to the boy in reassurance, tempted to give him a thumbs up as well. That was before the crazy cloaks begin to form over Hisomu and Naruko though. He would be lying if he said his stomach didn't turn as the chakra was drawn out. Luckily the boy had a strong stomach.
Finally the seal team manages to fight the seals to a stand still, and the entrance to the complex opens up. Just as it does, there's a distinct rumble in the earth and a male's voice calls out to all the teams present. "So you have come at last to your doom. Come, /Inuzuka/ and currs, come to your destruction. Today will mark the beginning of a new era…" Just then, the cave lights up in a flare of light, providing illumination into what would be an otherwise darkened area. But several kunai are launched up the tunnels toward the group, and as each one lands, a seal flares catching the entire group within it.
COMBAT: Michiko defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(35) attack from Fumi with a CLONE-TECHNIQUE…39
COMBAT: Kimura defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(41) attack from Fumi with a WIND-CLONE…50
Michiko narrows her eyes a bit when she hears the voice call out and calls out to everyone, "Get back!" as soon as the light show starts up. The girl makes a handseal, and a clone appears in front of her so she can avoid the effects of the seal. Her chakra continues flaring, and the girl sends out three powerful bolts of fire at the person who's shown her face. "I'd rather just destroy you now. I like this era," she states. Kimura has a clone in front of her, too, a clone made of wind that bursts and sends a small gust through the group. Then the fox's fur sparks up, and lightning flashes over towards Fumiko
RP: Yori transforms into BATTLE-MIND.
COMBAT: Yori defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(41) attack from Fumi with a BREVITY…45
Yori glances sideways at Sado when the other boy tells him it'll be okay. Does he realize what they're going up against? It's really not going to be pretty at all…When the seals are completed he hears the voice as well as Michiko's warning. He's quick to move once the kunai sinks into the ground nearby, disappearing momentarily from view. He is there, a short distance away. For the moment he holds his attacks in check as he has nothing ranged to throw at the person inside…
COMBAT: Hisomu defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(36) attack from Fumi with a EARTH-DOME…37
The girl inside the cloak of chakra watches the incoming attack and blinks as she rising up a dome of Earth about herself. Earth blocks the energy and then she takes the remainder as she comes out of it and rushes at the enemy of Fumi. It is realized moments later that this is merely a clone made out of the earth that protected Hisomu. She is still back and careful as she sends it forward to fight in her place.
COMBAT: Naruko defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(36) attack from Fumi with a BIJUU-TAIL-BLOCK…45
Naruko merely uses her tails to block the brunk of the attack, swaying them infront of her forcing the chakra away. From that same swaying though she foucses chakra through the air with a simple hand seal, converging blades of wind to help Michiko's fire techniques hit home. It also helped that she could stay back and fight, keeping herself out of harms way for the teim being. She retains her alertness, keeping her senses open for any surprise attacks…
COMBAT: Zankuro defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(31) attack from Fumi with a INTUITIVE-ACTION…37
Zankuro is well on the move before Michiko has even completed the warning. Heck, for perhaps one brief instance there, the rotund chuunin was a living blur, leaping back well before the Kunai has touched down. He skids along the ground a foot or so due to all that momentum. Undaunted, Zankuro narrows his eyes slightly down into the lit up totally, focusing past the lingering glare in his eyes to sight an enemy. What he catches isn't much. A small barrage of fireballs are nonetheless launched in the direction of the half visible at the moment.
COMBAT: Raion defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(39) attack from Fumi with a CAT'S-GRACE-II…53
Raion sees the kunai trigger something and wastes no time at all moving with extreme speed away from whatever it is, hiding behind anything he could, and then he comes right back and does rapid seals to do something… He pulls out two kunai from his chuunin vest and charges both with lightning chakra before flinging them at the person who's the focus of everyone else's attacks!
RP: Sado transforms into LIGHTNING-AURA.
COMBAT: Sado defends against SOUTHERN-HEAVENS-SEAL(49) attack from Fumi with a IMPROVED-EVASION…75
Sado listens to the words and has to smile a little bit. Great words were required for any decent villain, and this one was boastful enough to qualify. This got Sado pumped up even more as electricity begins to crackle over his body, the Yotsuki entering battle mode. As the kunai come flying they seem to pass right through Sado, his afterimage dissipating. From his new position, the boy has to actually wait for the others' massive assault to charge forward, lightning flowing through his hand towards his elbow. He yells as he leaps forward, elbow out in an attempt to deliver a powerful blow towards their target. As soon as he either hits or misses with the attack, the boy would disappear, moving fast enough to pass back through the target with another attack too fast for the untrained eye to see, the opening Sado combo.

COMBAT: Fumi defends against BREVITY(57) attack from Sado with a REINFORCED-SEAL-BARRIER…57
Despite the onslaught of attacks coming in, the woman at the end of the tunnel simply laughs menacingly. She stands there each of the attacks strikes layered, pre-set barriers that causes most of the damage to simply fade into nothingness. She glares at the group while rolling her head around. "Here, why don't you play with my friends for a moment, then I'll end you." She simply looks unconcerned for the most part, which would strike most people as odd. Still, her body starts to shift as bones errupt from various parts of her body…
In the meantime, three people come out of various areas in the room and start to attack people with various attacks, mostly elemental in nature.
RP: Fumi transforms into DANCE-OF-THE-LARCH.
COMBAT: Fumi heals Fumi for 641 with LESSER REGENERATION.
Michiko shakes her head a bit. "They don't look as interesting," she comments, sending Kimura to deal with one of these elemental goons that suddenly appeared from the hideout. The girl, in the meantime, makes a handseal. Suddenly, a bit of a sheen would appear in the ground before vanishing. Fumi would have a small chance before a wave of fire would cut between her vision and the ground so that binds of metal can keep hidden until they are right at Fumiko's legs. They suddenly spring up and try to trap her in place!
Those attacks that suddenly come at them (elemental ones, too!) are all avoided by Kimura, as they hit clones of the fox. She makes a few more, and they all start charging at different targets while the fox keeps an eye on the others to make sure that they're all doing okay. Kimura isn't as strong as Michiko, but she can still do her part!

Yori watches with a patient, calm expression as those within attack. The attacks are evaded before the boy finally decides to move in, the young Saito drawing his blade as he does so. He moves in fast, then flashes forward towards the closest of the three new additions, blade slicing past. He turns at the end and slices again, an attack that almost seems like it's too far away. But it's not.

Racing off to the side as the attacks come in from the other targets, Hisomu rushes into the group of enemies and extends claw like protrusions in the chakra cloak. She attempts to slash into one of the enemies besides Fumi, attempting to claw that one down and then glare at another, ready for further attacks.

Naruko continued to use the wind in order to push back their enemies and keep them more or less at bay while the reset of the onslaught was to happen. The winds continued to bend and weep at her will in the form of razor sharp blades… She was hoping to keep the enemies away from her friends so they had an easier time moving around them.

Nothing lands, but that is not what gets the Sarutobi to narrow his eyes at the figure. Oh far from it as it turns out, because for a second there he could've sworn he saw — "Well hello, hello, hello~" He murmurs as the woman moves just far enough away from the smoke and flames for a proper visual. Then, bones start protuding out of her.
Zankuro… didn't know hot to feel about that. LUCKILY! He didn't have to worry about puzzling that out before being forced to dance around attacks again. Spying another feminine form during the exchange and seeing his odds as 'significantly' higher with her, "I got this one!" He calls out midcharge, flashing through seals and jutsu one after the other. Chains for his lovely the young man does give, followed swiftly by an aura of mad beast headed her way!

Raion sees the elemental goons come out, perfect! Guys that aren't being assualted by ranged blasts he'd be getting in the way of! "Pansa! Let's go, three targets!" He easily and gracefully dances away from the attacks before both Pansa and Raion become a blur of motion, dashing with extreme speed in a barrage, both bouncing from enemy to enemy and trying to leave seemingly shallow cuts at each pass, but the deepness of the cut isn't the point, it's the amount of cuts, trying to drain them of their blood via a barrage of razor sharp slashes. Fun stuff!!

Sado is met with resistance as his attacks hit seal barriers, frustrating the boy. As the others come forth and start attacking, the young Yotsuki is able to dodge their initial attacks, choosing to focus on the person, and her barriers, in front of him for now like the others. The electricity around him begins to cry out like thousands of chirping birds before it suddenly vanishes, housed within the Yotsuki, giving him a boost in power and speed to utilize on the enemies. He focuses on the elemental wielding group for now, his hands chirping furiously with electricity as he dances through them, aiming and releasing the stored electricity in his palms in three powerful strikes, one to each Flunkie, following the path Raion makes.

Well, so far things don't seem to be going that well for Fumiko. She's facing what for her is a tough opponent, and she really, /really/ wants to tear the teen to shreds with her bones. But unfortunately she can't do much as Michiko is using both metal and fire attacks against her, which shikotsumyaku doesn't have anything to defend against it. So she's burned, then trapped in the metal bands… for now at least.
In the meantime, her assistants are facing the ongoing onslaught from everyone else rather well utilizing seal techniques woven into the floor. They lay down a cover fire of fireballs which, unlike the last time, are aimed directly at the group. Of course, this is a decoy attack to cover the sound of largish chunks of rock falling from the ceiling on top of the attackers….

Michiko hears some … sort of tremor? Or can she feel it? Her senses are just a bit confused with all of the chaos going around in the entire compound. Then a rock comes falling down down down and seeks to crush her! Oh no! The girl quickly makes a dome of earth, but it fails her, and she ends up getting crushed anyway. Fortunately, she was able to avoid the worst of the damage, and she doesn't need to move to perform her other attacks, either. Earth turns to metal and rises in front of her so she won't be bothered by that pesky fire. Then the barrier she formed starts to change into a spike, and she grips it while it elongates to oh-so-casually stab Fumi!

Kimura does a bit better with the cave in and the fire. Lightning sparks a bit more, and she uses that element to shift away from both the cave in /and/ the fire. Except the fire almost singes her fur when she tried to get away with wind, which is why she switched back quickly. The fox glares and looks around for whoever caused that cave in so that two fox-clones made of pure lightning can charge at him/her.

Stupid fire and rocks! Yori is a little too intent on his attacks with the sword as this is the first time he's used it in actual battle. It works to distract him enough that he fails to notice the cave in thanks to the fireball, and then he loses track of the fireball too. Luckily no big rocks crush him or anything, but one decent sized one slams into his extended arm before the fire hits. He quickly pats down the fire but the arm is apparently useless at the moment, likely broken from the big rock. Well he still has one, but is it really going to work? He sheathes the sword, letting the sleeve on his still good arm slide back before he charges whoever is closest once more, lightning filling the vambrace as it strikes.

RPCOMBAT: Hisomu took 300 damage.
Dancing back along the earth, Hisomu avoids the fire only to stare at those that attacked her before rushing after the person who attacked her. She takes a burn from the attack, thought it doesn't slow her. She unleashes a blast of gas from her mouth at the enemy. She breathes it out efore she sends in a clone of earth to follow up. She continues to move and glances over at Fumi. She then stands up straighter and laughs a little, the chakra of the seven tails slipping into her personality, "This is hardly even a fight." She chuckles and growls out a little, "We'll just kill them all and be home in time to eat!" She laughs very uncharacteristically.

Hisomu was…getting pretty crazy… something that Naruko had to watch out for but for now, now was the time to let things slide and beat up a bunch of people. Naruko springs into action using her cloak and tails to forge a sphere of fire energy. After it is formed she merely chucks it over in the direction of a flunky. This fire orb wasn't as big as her signature, so the compact explosion should be condensed and hopefully flood away a flunky so they could be on their way.

'What the— Did I just-…' Zankuro trails off on that thought, groaning in mild annoyance over the overzealousnes of his allies. Afterwards, it became all about picking up the pace, which the Sarutobi does a marvelous job of at first. Sure, he nearly got clipped a few times by falling debris, but old trusty battle instincts didn't fail him!
Sadly, somewhere along the way the glare of fire from the side was only enough warning to summon a column and an bronze tanuki to absorb the worst of it. He bursts out of the wave of flames extra crispy, and yet still determined to reach his target no matter cost. He literally leaped from them in his enthusiasm, and hit the ground rolling until he slowed to a stop at her side. Unless one of the others decided now would be the perfect time to finish her off, the youth just barely recovers in time to break out the chains, and a not so deadly iron maiden for his future bri-er-captive!

Raion readies himself to dodge, fireballs? Easy! But what's that rumbling? Raion gets smacked by a large rock to the top of the head rather hard. "Ow!" Despite getting smacked hard, he still seems pretty alright. He bobs and weaves to avoid the fireballs. And then whips out two more kunai, and charges those with lightning chakra again. He attempts to fling them at two of the goons. Because why not.

As the fire and earth came towards Sado, he was again reminded of his past spars with Michiko, who flung both around equally without remorse. He was currently at the hardest he had ever had to fight against his former team mate, and as he evaded the attacks, he almost wanted to grin like he was back in the training facility of Kumogakure. His eyes dart over the battlefield before finding Michiko engaging the original enemy. It looks like she could use some back up, as Hisomu had stated they were doing well with the flunkies. Gritting his teeth, clenching his fists, and crouching slightly, Sado's electricity slowly crawls back outside his body, though this time it surrounded him in the legendary Aura of the Yotsuki. With this, Sado's speed was at it's max and, in a small cloud of dust, Sado disappears, only to appear behind Fumi with his right arm cocked back, fingers outstretched in a spear-hand. He bends one finger, then another, the chakra around his hand beginning to glow more visibly, forming a lightning spear of chakra around the remaining fingertips. Bending one more, he releases the trigger as his arm shoots forward, aiming the Two Fingered Hell Stab towards Fumi's back, intending to go straight through her like a knife through butter.

Fumiko was definitely caught in the bindings, and Michiko's attack proves devastating. Ordinarily, combining her attack with Sado's would be enough to finish her off in short order. But, Fumiko had time to prepare, and they're fighting her on her own turf, so to speak. So in that moment between Michiko's ivy-strike and Sado's attack, a series of seals spring to life, causing an abrupt change in the woman. She grins viciously at Michiko and says, "Do you honestly think that I'm as stupid as you? Who challenges a sealing medic on their own grounds?" The wounds on her body quickly close up as her form begins to shift again as more bones explode all over her body… and everywhere else on the ground, including into her supposed allies. Fortunately for everyone else, the seals mess with Fumiko's control over what is normally a deadly jutsu, enabling the invaders a better chance to escape.

Michiko glances to Sado and is pretty tempted to give him a fist bump for that combo. Too bad she can't in the middle of a battle. Then Fumiko speaks, and Michiko blinks a bit at Fumiko and says, "Well, no, I don't think you're stupid." Her tone is … amazingly conversational. "That being said, I'm only just learning to become a seal master, though I do have some other things up- WHOOPS!" The girl jumps back, arms coming up to block that bone… Except she didn't account for the stuff coming from underground. She's prreeettty sure that she just got lanced through part of her leg. Fortunately, she's a medic! And she has some decent abilities, which means that her leg is fixed up right quick.

Yori really isn't in all that great of shape. A broken arm from falling rocks, and now, well, before he can move he gets sliced up pretty horrible by the bones. He's bleeding and sliced up pretty bad but he's not going to stop, not while the others are here. It's just not how he works. So instead he chases after the medic, the vambrace lashing out again to try and strike her.
COMBAT: Hisomu defends against LARCH-CRIMSON-HARVEST(73) attack from Fumi with a EARTHFLOW…39
COMBAT: Hisomu loses the roll and sustains 1815 damage.
Looking at the situation, Hisomu blink sand then stares, "Oh my…" She states and then tries to slide out of the way as bones come her way only to have one come up through her leg and then up through her back. She screams out as she is impaled. She shudders in pain as she feels the cloak whip and move around her, trying to make up for the pain. She then shudders as she pulls herself off. Blood would fall but instead it just flows through the cloak. Flowing around and around her. Like any sort of wounded animal, she screeches out and stares toward what wounded her. Her screams of pain are turning into screams of rage as she suddenly rushes at Fumi in pure wild abandon as the cloak of clear chakra now looks like a bloodied mess and all that can be seen of Hisomu is a white mouth and red eyes glowing out in rage and pain as a clone of Earth flows up beside her while a blast of poisonous breath procedes her! It is likely best to get out of her way.
COMBAT: Naruko defends against LARCH-CRIMSON-HARVEST(82) attack from Fumi with a SPECTRAL-DODGE…91
There was concern… but also relief that she was able to avoid the attack, she leaped out of the way, the tails at her rear offering a bit of a thrust so that she was more nimble and difficult to catch. Throughout this manuvere though she could hear her friends… Hisomu more speifically cry out in rage as the attack hit her square on… Everyone else….was pretty much too far away for her to help…Al she could do at this point was just move forward and she did just that. "You're going to pay for that!" Naruko exclaims as she forms yet another sphere, this time much larger than the previous, her bijuu chakra helps her create the bulk of it as she speeds towards Fumi in an attempt to hammer it home…"Chou Hikyuudama!"
COMBAT: Zankuro defends against LARCH-CRIMSON-HARVEST(74) attack from Fumi with a TENSE…12

"Annnnd there. That aughta hold ya for awhile." Zankuro dares to grin at his achievement while dusting off his hands. He spoke too soon in confidence as it turns out, for moments later, the earth shakes. Zankuro has just enough time to look away from his work before being blindsided from the ground beneath him. He rises on a spire of bone, chuunin vest failing ultimately to absorb the worst it. Blood spews out of his mouth with his first exhale. Zankuro only notices the vague taste of copper on his lips, so engulfed in pain is he. Only share willpower kept him conscious now.
"Ku…. Kuso…" Zankuro murmurs as he gripped at the bone holding him up. Despite knowing that logical nothing but the assistance of another is getting him down, the Sarutobi held on if only to keep from letting gravity and his own weight finish the job Fumi started…
COMBAT: Raion defends against LARCH-CRIMSON-HARVEST(88) attack from Fumi with a CAT'S-GRACE-II…53
COMBAT: Raion loses the roll and sustains 1388 damage.
Raion is caught massively off guard by this new attack, as bone seems to be damaging his comrades, and even the one he was told to stay by is injured! He tries his best to observe and dodge the attacks but he keeps getting cut, and cut, and cut some more! But each time he angles himself to where he's getting scraped rather hard. He and Pansa both. Raion pants rather loudly and once the barrage stops, he darts over to Zankuro, forcibly getting him off the spike on which he is impaled. Once that is finished he immediatly puts his hands on Zankuro. His hands glowing with Healing Chakra and trying to close up Zankuro's horrible wound. Raion seems to have disconnected from what's going on around him and is pretty focused on making sure Zankuro doesn't die. "Stay with me! You'll be fine!" Raion keeps an ear out for incoming attacks as he heals Zankuro, ready to take attacks aimed for him, preferring to get injured over the one almost dying in front of him. Pansa stands close to Raion, trying his best to defend him as well.

Sado immediately leaps backwards into the air as the bones begin to rise, landing all agile-like ontop of one of the protruding bones. "This stuff is nasty." he says as he looks around at his hurting team mates, hoping Michiko can do something for them as he cannot. But what he could do was distract the enemy as best he can, vanishing from his perch a top the bone and appearing against behind Fumi with that Hell Stab that even cut down the Raikage once.

COMBAT: Fumi defends against TWO-FINGER-NUKITE(78) attack from Sado with a ABSORPTION-BARRIER…84
Throughout this last series, Fumi almost looked bored, until Hisomu went full biju. While her barriers were easily capable of deflecting most of the most dangerous attacks away, Naruko's orbs managed to get through, singing her… well, a lot. "Oh? A jinchuuriki… and look how mad it's getting? And someone actually cares for it?" she asks, looking at the young woman. "Well, I'm afraid I'm going to have to punish you for that. Please do make this /a little/ interesting for me? Please?" Unfortunately for Hisomu, those may be the last words she ever hears. The bones around her flake apart and reform into a box before more bone fragments forms into long, impossibly sharp kunai that thrust into the box, entrapping the jinchuuriki in an iron maidon… or more accurately, a bone maiden.
Michiko glares at Fumi as soon as she sets eyes on Hisomu. While her teammate was too far for her to reach to interrupt the attack, Michiko was quick to try and attack Fumi herself. "Doton: Yomi Numa," she says coldly, her hands becoming a blur as she forms handseals. The ground beneath Fumiko would turn into a major swamp, making her sink into the ground up to her chest, even if she struggles. "Sado-kun! Naruko-san!" she then yells, counting on them to charge up some big attack. "Yori-san, go help Raion-san with Zankuro-san," She then instructs, having a feeling that the pair might be in danger after that last attack.
Yori grimaces as his attack misses. His current state doesn't exactly help that situation, unfortunately. When he sees that the women is going after Hisomu his eyes narrow. The pain from the broken arm is simply pushed away, ignored for the time being. Instead he charges the women, aiming to stun her to help the others. He's ready to sacrifice himself to help them.
COMBAT: Hisomu defends against BONE-MAIDEN(78) attack from Fumi with a EARTH-DOME…46
COMBAT: Hisomu loses the roll and sustains 2156 damage.
She races in and her clone and poison fail. Even as Hisomu screeches out, preparing to attack again, she notices the incoming bone. She whips up her hands and earth and stone race up around her…too late. The only thing the earth does is create a wall that attempts to go through the bone maiden but cannot reach it. The scream that comes out from within the bone is a screech of pain and sorrow. Blood flows freely from her as the cloak simply dissipates from around her in a sudden burst as it cannot be maintained. She falls limp within the box as her very life leaks out from within the box.
Down below, the earth dome the box rests upon turns crimson as the results of the kunai like bone spikes within the box is made clear to anyone looking as does the crimson stains along the seems of the box. Within the box a final whimper can be heard with one simple thing to follow, "Hi again…Kirameki…" Then silence.
So Hisomu seemed to had gotten squished into a bloody pulp… it was unlike what Naruko at all was expecting… There isn't words for what she had felt once Hisomu dropped to the ground.. Anger was the next step. She followed after Michiko's orders, charging up yet another sphere of energy to tackle against the enemy before them. The sphere grew in size until finally she rushed at Fumi to bring it down over her head. "Die!" Naruko exclaims, hoping the impending exploding would put an end to this and the Recluse once and for all.
COMBAT: Raion heals Zankuro for 419 with LIGHT HEALING JUTSU.
Being pulled off a giant spike isn't the most pleasent feeling in the world, but Zankuro endured that somehow. Barely! While he's too busy trying to make sense of the world, Raion is able to work with only a coughing fit and some thoughtless attempt on the Sarutobi's part to try and move his limbs. He doesn't see or… really hear what happens while Raion worked on him. His world and everything in it… it was tough enough just staying conscious. On some level Raion is recongized and given an assuring smile before the Sarutobi passes out on the spot.
Raion doesn't stop healing Zankuro, panting, tired, but still listening to his surroundings and hearing… Did someone just die? Ignore it! Stay focused. He watches the wound until it has closed enough for Zankuro to be stable. Once he's stable Raion briefly looks away, seeing the Bone Maiden… The blood… The corked off Naruko… Raion just kind of stares, panting. In a bit of a stunned shocked state. His focus is still on protecting the person he was assigned to, so he was still ready to throw himself in front of an attack aimed for Zankuro. Especially now that he was out cold…
Sado looks up from his attacks against Fumi in time to see Hisomu in danger. With all his speed in his Armor, he ultimately would not be fast enough as the bones envelop Hisomu in front of him and he loses sight of her beyond his extended hand. He wasn't fast enough. This was his fault, he could've saved her. But hey, maybe she was ok, right? He looks up enough to s pot the blood in the seems of the box and his eyes go wide. His first experience losing a comrade in front of him. His thoughts were jumbled but he knew he had to finish what was going on first before thinking about things. He turns slowly to face Fumi with a look of hatred and determination, charging towards her with a Hell Stab prepared for her heart. Nothing hidden, tactful like attacking from behind, just a straight battle charge towards her, thrusting his two fingers forward. "DIE"

Fumiko looks at the now angry woman that seemed to care for the jinchuuriki and asks, "Awww, you going to throw a tantrum now?" Just then the room starts to shake violently, though the source of the vibrations isn't obvious until she says, "Looks like Yoshi is unhappy…" But then the area where she is is flooded, and she finds herself unable to move! She doesn't have much time to say anything more as the pure unbridled fury of those left is turned on her. Yori's attacks actually manages to find a way through the bones, acting as if they were a death from a thousand cuts. But it's Naruko's and Sado's attacks that really tear into her. As the smoke clears, a rather badly burnt Kaguya elder sways backwards and forwards. "You win here… but Yoshi-sama and Hiro-sama… they're even stronger…. I hope you're used to loved ones dying…" With those last words, she falls face-first in the muck, quite dead.
Michiko shakes her head a bit. "And the people who are facing them are stronger than me. So I think those two will have a very interesting treat in store." The girl glances over to Sado, then casually rests a hand on his shoulder. He would get a bit of energy, but nothing impressive. Just enough to probably get him to a safer place. Then she disappears and is suddenly next to Zankuro. "Good job, Raion-san," she comments, noting that part of the wound was already healed. She finishes enough of the healing so that Zankuro will be able to walk on his own, if needed. Raion also gets the same treatment as Sado, though his wounds are healed in addition to some energy being given. Then Michiko flickers over to Yori and makes him hold his arm out so she can properly set it before mending the broken bone. "Take it easy for a little bit, Yori-san," she suggests before making her way over to Hisomu's body. Hisomu was closer to her than the others, in terms of physical distance, but there was no need to heal someone already dead. She looked at Hisomu's body for a few moments before wasting energy to close up some of the wounds so that she looks a bit better. Then she murmurs something quietly before standing up and glancing around to everyone.
"We won," she says. "It was a hard-fought battle, but we won." But they lost Hisomu in the process… Michiko grits her teeth a bit and moves to pick up Hisomu's body so that she can either carry her home or she can get someone else to take her (probably Sado or Naruko). Then a thought crosses her mind that makes her almost freeze in her tracks. 'Where did the Bijuu go?' It wasn't here… It wasn't over- … Hiei's gonna kill her, isn't he.
Yori starts to tell Michiko that he'll be fine and to help everyone else but it's to no avail, so he painfully uses one arm to raise the other. Once it's healed he feels tired after all that had happened. Hisomu…he couldn't protect her. What type of Senshi would be make being unable to protect his friends? The young Saito just stands there, staring as Michiko lifts the body.
Sado removes his lightning enhanced fist from the Sado-fist sized hole in Fumi before she collapses and tells them they will rue the day. He looks down at his fist, the lightning drying the blood on it quickly enough, though it just gives him flashbacks to mere moments ago when Hisomu was there, then she wasn't. It was his first experience of loss, of someone dying right in front of him and he failing to get there in time. His body had failed him. He clenches his blood covered fist and closes his eyes, clearly frustrated with himself, standing there amongst the rubble. It didn't matter to him that he had barely got to know Hisomu, she was one of them, a Kumo nin of his generation with her whole life ahead of her. A single tear wells up in the eleven year old's eye before falling down his cheek, quickly evaporating within the lightning, that slowly fades. He was deep enough within his own mind that he didn't even notice Michiko's help, which was unlike him.
Sado looks up from his own thoughts to see everyone picking themselves up, Michiko was over tending to Hisomu's body, the others were resting. All the feels suddenly came rushing into him, hitting him like a truck, causing him to spew his breakfast over near the rubble nearby. Feeling a little better after, Sado cleans himself up and walks over to Michiko as she lifts Hisomu up into her arms. He was certain that Michiko was tired after all that, and physical lifting wasn't exactly her strong suit.
He would offer to carry her if no one else did, it was the least he could do.
As the explosion and combined attack cleared Naruko gasps for air…Not because she was exhausted. More so because she was a bit frantic. Everyone else was okay…which was good, but Hisomu on the other hand… why the heck wasn't Michiko healing her. Her tails disspitated and she quickly made her way over towards Hisomu, to whom she tugged out of Michiko's arms, forcefully. " Why didn't you spend more time healing her?!" Naruko shouts to Michiko, knowing that she did try her best…but the frustration was there. There hadn't been a mission she had been in that involved one of their nin dying… she cringes and ruffles her fingers through Hisomu's clothing, a few tears streaming down on her cheeks. "Even though we killed the one that did this… it's not enough to help me feel any better… " It sucked thinking that way….what was there to avenge if there was no one else to fight?
