Shizuka was busy trying to help Astrid up from her dizzy state, this was a but harf even though she doused her in ice cold water she has used. This wasn't particularly good cause as Shizuka looked up she seen some of her guild members were fighting some strangers that looked very bad, she wanted to help Astrid but knowing Astrid she would help her guild so Shizuka stood up and looked at Lucius "Try to get Aunty Asty up ok Dark guy?" she had no clue who Lucius was at all so Dark guy was what she called him for now.
Shizuka materialized her Glaive as she went running to the group, she would be lying if she didnt say she was nervous, honestly she saw a group people fighting her guildmates and she had no clue who they were. She was between Summer and Shen as she saw about a few more, about 5 more actually as they approached tpwards Shizuka as they smirked thinking it was easy pickings with a little girl in their little group, bad news for them little mage even if D rank knew a few things up her own sleeves as she readied her glaive as it stood significantly longer then her, it was about over 5 foot where she was at least over 4 feet 4 inches. As she stood there they all came rushing in but Shizuka soon pulled a hand back and whistled just like you would for a dog except...a few desert snakes, Mambas and Sidewinders lunged from sand and started biting the men as they screamed in pain as some still clung to the men they were soon droping to the k ees in agony but soon one by one the men started falling over she smiled at the last one as he grunted trying to stay conscious but soon Shizuka took the shaft of the Glaive and clocked him up the head hardly expending any magical energy as the snakes disappeared into the sand again as she smiled bouncing as the 5 men laid there out of it before looking at Shen and Summer "heh...sorry got a littlle excited...oh don't worry their just paralyzed i told the snakies to not kill them, their very nice" The little blond girl was excited that she actually did it, she even was able to take out some bad guys by herself, her confidence swelled up a bit in her chest as she was just happy she wasn't useless during this job.
Comments, Concerns, Etc.: Let the comedy begin! @Everyone
Unfortunately his plans for a moderately organized search party were crushed due to the emergence of come cannon fodder just nearby. Not all of them were totally weak, but it was clear that none of them practiced magic so this was not going to be a difficult fight even for the younger people. Summer darted off on a horse and rammed into a bunch of them while a few other people made attacks on their own. Hero believed they were being a bit too light-hearted though. Eh, in the end it was alright. There was enough firepower to ultimately get through the day as long as nobody barreled in with everything they had early on. With that in mind, the giant needed to go into action and take care of business before the others got tired. Yamamoto pushed off the ground and made a quick dash that would've shocked the other members. After all, nobody would have expected a thirteen-foot man to move faster than an ethernano-car. However... what the man did not account for was the fact they were currently in ruins. What did that mean? Well naturally there were bits of stone walls broken down all over the ground. Right. It was too bad he did not realize until too late that one such lopped pillar was just in front of him. Anyone could guess what happened when someone collided with an object that was more sturdy than they expected. Hero was still airborne when contact was made with said pillar; in fact, he made a full flip before he finally began to crash to the ground.
To make matters worse, a shiny object came loose from one of his pockets. Shit. That ring he found a few weeks ago... he never took it out of this pair of pants after that day. Suddenly he regretted forgetting to do so, because he already knew what the ring was capable of. For some reason, this item had the power to... change the entire make-up of the one who wears it. Unfortunately, "make-up" in this sense referred to gender. And what was happening right now? Yep. That very piece of simple jewelry was coiling around one of his fingers as if in slow motion and when it finally stopped, his landing caused dust to cloud his position and then some. Well... this isn't going to go smoothly anymore. Not by a long shot. This ring did not only change appearances, but voice and clothes and... parts. Every single bit of the man was now: a woman. Hero only underwent this change once before, so he was not at all used to it, not that he was a pervert or anything. There was one primary thing to keep in mind though. In this particular... form, he had to think of himself as that gender or he was not going to be able to function. Doing that required a lot of research, which was what he had to do the last time this occurred.
Sighing lightly, she stood up and dusted herself off while looking around with an expression that only said "don't anyone dare laugh". There was a lot going on in her head right now but currently the main focus was attempting to collect herself enough to be capable of functioning. It was a good thing that this ring did not affect her Magic, though. That was a blessing in its own right.
And while you are sitting indoors waiting for the storm to pass I will be outside dancing in the rain
The small woman let out a weak whine when her younger brother rolled her into his lap. The action only caused her further discomfort, making her more disoriented and sickly for a few moments before it settled. The shade from the taller man did manage to help slightly. The heat from the sun's harsh rays no longer hurt her ice-covered skin and produced a much more relaxing atmosphere to be held by someone she was close to. Not that her pride wasn't hurt by this. Having to be carried around by your baby brother? It was humiliating, at least to the prideful slayer. But she would not resist his helpful hand. She was simply too weak to do so. Otherwise she would have leaped right out of his grasp and started beating up on their current enemies. But something happened that caused the ace to not be able too. Shizuka approached the two and began to shake her entire body back and forth roughly, once again stirring up her motion sickness to levels even more drastic than before. Astrid's eyes swirled, too dizzy and shaking to even make noise anymore. The water was really what sealed the deal. Just when she thought the shaking was over and she wobbled in Lucius' grasp, trying her best to stay awake, Shizuka gained the brilliant idea to pour a bottle of water over her face. A good idea maybe some other time, but when the person was also an ice mage? That wouldn't go over so well. Due to the ice covering Astrid's skin the water instantly froze into a block of ice in midair and fell onto her face, landing upon her forehead like a dumbbell. The impact alone made a painful noise, and managed to knock out the mage entirely with the freezing pain, as if that had been the last straw. Unconscious, the french woman fell limply into Lucius' grasp, unable to move anymore.
It seemed this mission just kept getting worse for her. Defeated by a bottle of water so early into the mission, all while the rest of her guild was being attacked... This would not bode well.
1,002/3,000 ● @tag ● sorry for being so late with this, and even for the poor quality of this post. Real life sucks, but i had to get something in here. I promise the next post will be better.
Summer’s horse was clearly the thing that gave out a few reactions from some of the guild, some looked flabbergasted while some looked rather indifferent to what they just saw. Some even took it to their advantage, like Shen for example. Dongsaeng decided it was a great idea to hop onto the horse as if it was a motorbike scene from an action move, before deciding to use one of his abilities to his advantage, this was going to be quite difficult for Summer now. If everything was in her way, then she might damage the brass horse, or the weapons, maybe even both.
Regardless, Summer had to find a way to maneuver quickly, fuck it, she was gonna force a clearing. Driving her through through a weapon or two, the female got her horse to ram quite a few of them down eventually, they all collapsed as if they were bowling pins, except they didn’t all make the sound, nor was the word strike shouted out obnoxiously. It seemed everyone was working together to make the whole thing work, this was great, she loved seeing the team work together, she guessed.
Hopping off the false animal, the female slammed her feet into the sand and looked around… the female had an idea, this was going to be great! Taking out her ringblade that was behind her back, she held it in both of her hands and began to spin around and around, she then threw the heavy thing into the air! A very dangerous tactic indeed… “INCOMING!!!” The female shouted as the ringblade then hit some of the enemies by surprise, it seemed that she was not going to take anything lightly. Even as the ring blade came back to the female, she placed it onto her horse as if it was a hula necklace or something. It took the strain off her back and she felt much lighter.
Everyone seemed to be doing just fine too, it didn’t take long for all the enemies to vanquish thanks to the team… although there was one problem… Hero turned into a girl, this was met with some reception that belonged to the fireworks expert, she even wished that Hero didn’t suddenly turn into a female. Alas, it was too late now, Hero was now a tranny.
“Hero is now a femme fatale, I wonder what will happen, lil lady!” The fireworks expert said so lightly, trying to take light of the situation to make Hero more comfortable about his tranny self. “Show that inner woman!”
OOC: Bleerrgghhh, I hope I gave ppl more THAN enough time to deal with posts etc, so thanks for the patience ^^ I hope nobody got too bored of waiting :P Meanwhile, Hero is now a female, lets all take the piss! Jk jk.
All in all, I can’t wait to see this round of posts x)
HORSE ABILITY: This horse can seriously hurt someone if Summer decides to ram them with a brass horse with little wheels under its hooves. Summer will let the non life-like horse charge towards the target and they will be ran over for user ranked damage. The charging is instant and the cooldown is user ranked+1.

His wide summoning of weapons came in handy, both for the offensive lightning mage and for another guildmate who seemed to have a fetish for swords if he had to exaggerate just a bit. It wasn’t such a bad idea, after all; plus, most of his guildmates - or perhaps a dozen of them - got to land a first blow. Without reconsidering the reason of that possibility, Shen looked over at Shizuka, the younger-looking girl - just to avoid assuming ages - who had taken down a good bunch of mages herself. His red eye reflected the view of the ether snakes beneath the thin layers of sand as they disappeared after ended duty. “Snakes…” he spoke to her quite dryly, “-sound underrated, considering their reputation.” With that said, he lifted up Báo Léi and swung a yellow, electrified wave over Shizuka and right at the body of another ambusher that attempted to sneak up in shelter of the fallen ones.
He'd got off the brass horse because of the S.W.O.R.D from earlier, so he relied on his senpai to do her tricks and instead focused around here for now. Shizuka had taken a good amount, so perhaps he still had to move a bit further, in which he said: “I’m going to need your assistance, Shizuka.” Without a warning, he proceeded to pick her up on his shoulder; despite his build, he found himself capable of that, while he sprinted like a bullet across the fine stone dust that the desert contained of. First, he was going to check on the magic circle that was put onto Hero earlier; it costed mana to maintain it for too long, so it sounded reasonable to take a look on it. However, following the classic trail of flown sand and footprints ON THE SAND, he spotted a figure that wouldn’t exactly remind him of the big Hero.
The area was filled with ruins, but even so, Shen couldn’t really stop questioning the lady that stood in the middle of the crash. Unable to find an answer, Summer-senpai did so for him, revealing Hero’s presence as this girl. That was when his face turned into metal, surprised and frustrated at the same time. However, he quickly shook the surprise off and began looking at the ruins, mostly just to change the subject. “S-So, it seems to be our first lead,” he spoke up to try and catch Summer-senpai’s, Hero’s and Shizuka’s attention away from the transformed hand-to-hand veteran himself… or should he say herself from now on?

Treasure Ray Slash:
Name: Treasure Ray Slash Rank: Character’s Rank (scales up to C) Duration: 2 posts (two slashes, one per post) Cooldown: 3 posts Description: Shen’s magic is directly channeled through the blade, thus unlocking this skill; he cuts through the air, creating slashes of pure currents running through the thin air and striking whatever is targeted in a certain distance. Depending on rank, it increases in range and size, as well as speed:
D-Rank: Size = 5x5 meters max --- Range = 10 meters --- Speed: 10 m/s C-Rank: Size = 15x15 meters max --- Range = 25 meters --- Speed: 20 m/s
Strengths: 1. It’s very quick and useful to launch out almost instantly during a tense battle.
Weaknesses: 1. It’s halved in power against Earth/Wind spells. I wonder why..? 2. The sizes of the spell has a secret; the actual area where the spell deals full damage is within a thickness of 2 meters (meaning that the full-damaging spell is 5x2 meters as D-Rank etc.). That means that if you manage to dodge a slash right before it hits you, and if you’re still in the ‘size’ area, then the spell’s power is only 75% as powerful against you. So you wouldn’t really have dodged it, you would just avoid some damage from it.
Leah opened her mouth to shout in warning when their guild ace decided to go tromping around in the ruins; it wasn't as though he was a small man (at all) and when moving around at such high speeds, one was liable to crash into something if his reaction time wasn't high enough. Not that she was saying anything about Hero's reflexes, she was sure they were so much better than her own, but like... jesus man, he was so fast. The redhead turned her attention away from the man, shutting her mouth promptly and instead feeling the need to go over and check if Astrid was okay. It was nice of Shizuka to try to revive the White Dragon Slayer a bit, but the fact that it had been ice cold water put in the hands of an ice user was a bit... erm, well at least the female seemed to be more awake now? Oh wait, no, that wasn't even true, since the pale haired woman was now out like a light. The emerald eyed mage shrugged a bit to loosen her shoulders before glancing down at the enemies that were littering the sandy ground. So were they ready to move on now?
Well, at least Summer seemed like she was rearing to go. Charging forwards on her horse like that, the fireworks expert was surely somebody to get out of the frikking way of. Thankfully, well at least for her poor opponents (nobody liked to be run over and rammed by a faux miniature Trojan horse) the dark haired woman soon dismounted. It honestly might not have been a blessing for the enemy treasure hunters, though, because soon she was swinging around that ring blade and throwing it dangerously towards the remaining foes. Leah resisted the temptation to flee from anywhere within an 100m radius of the woman; instead, she drew her High Imperial Daggers and pointed them at the nearest enemy as threateningly as she could manage. Unfortunately, it was a fleeing opponent who didn't pay any attention at all to the C Rank mage, and she huffed slightly before reluctantly sheathing her daggers and glancing over at the fireworks expert, who seemed to be leading this expedition at the moment.
"What are we doing now..." she trailed off as she realized that the black haired female's attention was diverted by a certain Hero Yamamoto, who was now um, Hera Yamamoto? No, girls could be called Hero too, but either way he... she was now a very lovely girl. And a short one, too, at least compared to the ace's previous height. The redhead reflected that judging by the severe expression on her face, nothing had changed aside from appearance. Wisely, she didn't let a laugh slip out of her lips, but she did offer the newly-a-girl a reassuring smile. Why such a thing was needed, Leah wasn't really sure.
Lucius Foss ☺ Golden Phoenix ☺ B-Rank I c r e a t e d a m o n s t e r a h e l l w i t h i n m y h e a d
Lucius held his dear elder sister, who looked like she was about to vomit all over him and their surroundings. Then a small girl that the assassin was trying to ignore, decided to ruin everything by grabbing the dragon slayer and shaking her rapidly. Causing her to feel even worse when it was finished and she fell back onto her younger brother's lap. Why the frick did she think that was the most rational thing to do? 'Oh look at this, my apparent friend looks hurt and/or sick let me rapidly shake her and ask her if she is okay.' It was completely stupid, man kids are more idiotic then the dark magic user originally thought. How could Astrid even tolerate being around this eccentric little moron? He couldn't understand, guess he just didn't like any other living thing in general excluding Astrid and maybe another mage from Golden Phoenix, Kaya. But animals and kids were higher on that chart, they were stupid and annoying as was his current standing opinion. Due to was the dirty blonde did to his sibling, she didn't look any better, but worse. He didn't understand the nine year old's goal in doing so, but I'm not going to continue that unending tangent. Pushing the small girl away nonchalantly he looked down at his sister, not that he could really see her, being blind and all, force of habit. He touched her face with his hand, her crimson eyes were like swirling spirals. Then the little girl decided to redeem herself in the boy's blind eyes by dumping water on the young ill feeling woman's face. Which might've been a good thing to do, but either way in whatever situation that rolled out the eighteen year old would be furious. The water that spilled from the little girl's bottle turned to a nice block of ice, that proceeded to fall on the slayer's head and knock her out. He didn't really see was happened, but once he felt around he felt a nice sized piece of now sand covered ice, quickly melting in the heat of the desert sun. He wasn't a scientist but he was pretty sure water didn't work like that, but he would figure that out later. Going back to check on his sister, he rubbed his hand off on his black hoodie to clean it off from the water and sand on it. Leaving a nice little mess on the sweater. Gently he felt his sister's forehead were the ice fell, a nice decent sized bump was left in it's wake. Her breathing was slower and she was no longer moaning in pain from her major motion sickness, so he deduced that she was now asleep. The boy whipped his head around, and started to sense for the presence of the child, but she already appeared to be gone. Well isn't that just great, he would have to deal with that pest later. He lifted up his petite sister, and he shifted her weight over to his less dominant arm. So she was sitting on his arm with her head leaning up against his chest, her legs and feet dangling when he stood up. He rubbed himself off a little bit to get whatever grime decided to make itself at home on his black skinny jeans. Then releasing a sigh from his lungs he leaned down to grab his cane and moved along. With the shadow manipulate holding the small silverette, you could truly see how tiny she was compared to her brother. Not that he was to large with muscles or anything, he was decently toned, but he was really tall. Standing at seven feet a rather uncommon height for people. But with the young man holding her they made each other look smaller or bigger. By the time all this was completed, the whole conundrum with his sickly sister, all the enemies that appeared have now disappeared. According to the lack of feeling any aura of a stranger, and the fact that he couldn't hear people in the midst of battle.

N o t e s: Sorry for no reply last turn and the sort of lame one this turn.

Certainly the... young lady had trouble adjusting to her new form. However, it wasn't nearly as difficult as the last time this happened. Hero sighed and then took a walk around the small battlefield, casually gathering all the treasure hunters whom were lying on the ground defeated after taking a beating from the other members of the group; it was unfortunate that she didn't get to join in but it was probably for the best. With her magic, she could have easily hurt her comrades which would not have been good. She then supposed it was lucky that it did happen after all. With the conclusion to those thoughts made, the woman focused on the task at hand. To the others, it most undoubtedly looked like a little girl was easily dragging behind her a gigantic pile of people like nothing which was rather comical to imagine. However, there was still something that bothered her about this change. It didn't feel... right being called Hero in this transformation. It was a very strange feeling... almost as though the ring brought with it a personality that adapted to the wearer? That would have made the most sense would it not? This was not the best time for that train of thought though. After rounding up all of the knocked down enemies, the girl looked down upon them with a fierce gaze and spoke in a tone that carried far more weight than one could have expected from such a small body.
"Do not come after my young brothers and sisters again, or next time I will deal with you."
Her voice was young but it held the same amount of force as it would have in her normal form; after speaking, the young-looking girl brought down her left palm down onto the top of the pile of hunters which resulted in a crater below them. She then kicked them all high into the air and charged ethernano into her right arm. Throwing her fist at the airborne people caused a powerful enough shock wave to instantly catapult them all far into the sky. It happened so quickly they were out of sight within a period of a few seconds, to which then afterward the female Yamamoto spoke in a happy and proud manner.
"Haha! Well done, everyone! What do you say we get this treasure hunt truly underway?"
Although... her voice was indeed way too different, to speak the same way she normally did. This was still going to take some getting used to for sure.
Shizuka eeped as she was picked up and carried off by who she only knew as Shen, she was whisked away quite feverishly to the others. When they got there she seen a girl...weird she wasn't with them before...strange. Though what was funny was that she reminded her of Hero...like waaaaaaay to much like Hero like a girl version of her.
Either way she seemed to be wanting to get the treasure hunt underway, she agreed, this treasure hunt would be better if they got underway "yeah i agree with the new girl, this treasure hunt is gonna be cool if we can find all we can for the guild" she beemed positively although she didn't know that she accidentally knocked out Astrid and that Lucius was wanting to literally hurt her over it more likely, still she was excited to see where the guild will be going to find it, she didn't really remember where they said it would be at all she remembered was something with Ruins, either way she clitched her backpack straps ready to get going.
That was until she stopped and looked at Shen, she then remembered that he actually said he required her assistance, but for what?? Thats what actually really puzzled her so she grabbed his sleeve and tugged it to get his attention "Hey umm... Shen? You said you required my help with something before you brought me here...can you tell me with what? Honestly I've been wondering what you meant back there about it" the young wizard of the group asked him, every word she said was true, what did he need HER help for, she was still getting used to the ropes in the guild still, but this must have been pretty big if he need her help in any case especially during the job where the guild itself was involved. "So is it like some big spell or maybe like nedding help to find something secret or buried around here? Actually does it involve the job at hand?" she also asked him, now actually getting excited and antsy about what it was now, tis the curiosity of a little girl and everyone knows they wanna know everything and anything, in a way they were like explorers and researchers, always wanting to know and always looking for new things to discover along the way of their journies through life and learning through living them.
