- Little Arcadia:
After announcing each of the upcoming battles, Arcadia raced down the street for the judges booth. She had dropped all magic around her, no longer needing it for her part in the Festival. The perfectly visible and currently littlest of slayers rushed up the stairs into the booth two or three at a time. She had time, but she still had a little last minute preparation to do.
Arcadia smiled and waved to three judges probably already waiting for her. She waved to friends and family,”Hey, big sister! Master Sorano!”, and bowed to Samira, “Good meet you, Ms. Samira! I'll just be a minute.”
The littlest slayer was glad to find the pillows she hard arranged to brought to the booth were waiting for her. She stacked the two cushioned on her chair, and slipped her iLac from its pocket her dress. She tapped her iLac to the broadcast lacrima, syncing it with an app she opened. It would allow her to remotely control the broadcast stream being sent from the various camera lacrima around town to the viewing lacrima set up in the booth and along the streets of Magnolia. Jumbo viewing lacrima were available at the various arenas for the judges to illustrate any judgment through replay if it became necessary.
Once her iLac was synced with the broadcast lacrima stream, she climbed up to her elevated seat on her pillows.. They made it so she could see over the the desk the microphone lacrima were set on. She waved over to the wizard saints settled next to her, ”Uh..if I could get you all to say something into your mic lacrimas, one at time. I need to test and set the levels, and then we'll be good to go.”
When the levels were set, Arcadia tapped through her iLac, starting up the stream to broadcast out over the lacrima-net. The pale blonde slayer held up one opened hand, and slowly and silently counted down from five with her fingers. When only her forefinger was held up, she swing it in an arc, and tapped the button her app to bring everything live. ”Welcome to the Fairy Festival Fairy Ring! As announced by yours truly, Arcadia Fairchilde, just after the parade, we'll be having four exciting battles featuring four Fairy Tail mages facing off four volunteer mages.”
Arcadia tapped the controls on her iLac screen to set the viewing screens to a four-way split screen of each of the contestants faces in the sky created by the lingering fireworks. ”Once again matches we will be featuring are Rina Everglades vs. Mia Liu, Althea Eventide vs. Kumi, Aven Alverson vs. Leona Jarnefeldt and Mura Kensho vs. Johann von Weiss. I gotta apologize to Johann “Mahdude” von Weiss for getting his name wrong earlier down on the parade stand. It is not Van Weiss.”
She brought up various pictures of toys of all the battle participants, ”You may have seen the faces of our super awesome contestants on toys and souvenirs at various sponders' booths and vandors around the Festival. Be sure to pick up your favorite so you can root for them in style! A late addition to our collection is one more Aven figure! Seen here.”
- Aven Figurine:
Arcadia tapped the screens to along the streets were each assigned a different arena. In the broadcast/judges booth, a bank of viewing boxes were unaffected by the the broad cast stream. They provided raw feed for the judges to watch each match. She continued, ”Joining me today is our All-Saint Judges's Panel! Saint of Humilty - Samira Nassar! Saint of Tranquility – Sorano Granon! And Saint of Purity – Nessa Cordelia Lux! They'll be offering the insights as well as making any judgments should any rules violations come up or clarifications be necessary. And in case both contestants are still standing at the end of a match's time limit they will confer and decide the winner!”
The little slayer flipped through the various matches as the action began to pick up in each one. ”In Arena Atlantis, it looks like things are well underway. I've personally seen both Aven and Leona in action on separate occasions. They're both amazing and powerful wizards. They appear quite evenly matched, a real tactical showdown so far. Though I think Leona may have her hands full if Aven manages many more of those Seeker's Crcles. And Aven could likewise find his carefully laid plans thwarted now that Leona has brought some of her big guns.”
Arcadia switched her focus,, setting up a slow motion replay ”Are you serious?! Did you folks see that light show out at Arena Avalon!? Let's that again! Johann nearly turning the whole arena crispy with against vortex of black flame! And Mura with one big slice of Nope!, putting out the flames! Would you expect any less from the Battle of the Saints! True one of them is a God of Ishar, but Battle of the Saint and God is not as catchy!”
Her faerie green gaze shifted focus on the screens again, ”And in Arena Lemuria, it looks likes we're off to a blistering start. Thea is not wasting any time, and already getting up close and personal! And the mysterious Kumi! Did she just teleport or is she really just that fast?! Let's see in replay.” Arcadia tapped her iLac, putting the blurred dash in ultra slow repeat. ”Look at that, even ins slow-mo replay, you can't really tell!”
Shifting her gaze to one more time, ”And it looks like we're just under way in Arena Mu! This should be one tense match u. Flame Demon Slayer vs Heavenly God Slayer! This Battle of Fairies should some real fun to watch unfold!
Having summed up the action so far best as she could, Arcadia smiled and glanced over to Sorano, Nessa and Samira, “What do you all think? What can we look forward to in the battles today? Anything that stands out to you so far? Feel free to use the power of the replay to illustrate your points.”
