Come out to play~
(Plot of land used as a training area approximately a mile from Rukongai. Antebellum 3 months.)
“Don’t have any masculinity? Or pride?” Cameron sighed, cracking the whip several times by Cell’s head. He remained in a ball. With two girls hiding behind him. Cameron certainly had his work cut out for him. He whipped Cell across the back to get a reply.
A large puff of smoke came and limp doll-versions of Cell, Saph, and Erin were strewn across the ground. A little wooden sign was put in the ground among the dolls. “Kawarimi no Jutsu!” was in black lettering upon said sign.
Cameron promptly used the whip to do an Indiana Jones/Spiderman Style trick on a ridiculously convenient pole as he searched for the three. He muttered under his breath, “They can live…until I get my prize~”

“I’m getting dizzy. Can you help me already!?” Min screamed, currently spinning randomly through the air as she flailed her arms and legs wildly. The rifle lay on the ground near Gira, having been utterly misused as an oar and eventually dropped.
“I would if I could…” Gira sighed. At one point he had finally been able to move under the weight. He moved…downwards. His constant struggle left him staring at the ceiling-which Min kept bashing into-and virtually frozen.
Meanwhile Kai…managed to break his chakram against the wall and had continued to take potshots at horribly abused targets.
From a one-way window up above Magnus sighed. “This is not going quite as planned.”
“You’re telling me” Ryuu muttered, sketching new design ideas to better fit with the team. “I’ve lightened Gira’s armor and lowered the amount of ammo the heavy claymore will be able to hold. I’m still having trouble fine-tuning and stabilizing Min’s Soul Drive. Kai can’t practically use the Chakram Shooter…or aim for that matter. On top of that we’re behind schedule with getting resources to actually make the parts, The White Star isn’t going to be able to get to depart towards Earth for at least another week…”
Magnus sighed again, “I think Min just knocked herself out by ramming into the ceiling and landing on Gira.”
“I can’t wait until we actually begin a simulation…” Ryuu muttered, headdesking rather loudly.
(One Week later.)
“Now…” Cameron smiled maliciously. “Time to test your reflexes!” He quickly threw three knives off at the three shinigami.
Cell dodged to the side, firing a counter-arrow at the black shadow-knife. “You’re moving slowly” he analyzed quickly, firing a second arrow at Cameron soon after the first. Cameron caught it between his hands before firing off a round of shadow needles.
Saph caught the dark projectiles coming her way using her vines, the fan as a guard in case the vine was too slow. “And your guard is wide open” she added as Cameron began firing weapons of shadows at them like the worlds largest Gatling Gun.
Erin didn’t have all that much in her arsenal to counteract the assortment of ranged weapons. She fell back on mixing her Zanpakutou with Tsuzuri Raiden and Byakurai. An electrical storm brewing around her as she let off enough electricity to light Beijing, Taipei, and Pakistan for a year. The sheer electricity forced the weapons off course.
“Do you want me to try?” Cameron smirked, snapping his fingers as a dome of shadow-needles appeared insantly around the four of them.
A simultaneous “NO” resounded before the needles dispersed and normal training ensued.
“Lightning Strike!” Cell called out to the others, who instantly understood what he meant. Saph opened her fan up fully as Cell threw several needles into the air. These needles stopped in mid-air due to Saph’s control over wind. Lastly, Erin began discharging electricity into the floating conductors-making a spider web of lightning. Cell fired a single iron arrow through the center of it, “Hadou no Yon! Byakurai!” The result of this? A very fancy looking attack made up of a very large electric arrow with an iron core.
Cameron took the full brunt of the attack. As the dust cleared he was laughing and bleeding on the ground.
(OMG Time is flowing linearly now!)
“Finally, we can retrieve the supplies we need to begin construction.” Ryuu said, relieved, as he got comfortable on the Captain’s chair on the White Star, a spherical white ship and the second interdimensional Sereitei ship. In fact, the White Star had it’s own little past on Earth. It was sighted several times and thought of as a second moon by some people. Wanna guess where the term “Lunatic” came from? “Min, could you set the coordinates for me?” Ryuu asked as soon as they had successfully end up somewhere on Earth
“Yes Sir” Min replied, beginning to operate very complex-looking machine involving a touchscreen and a 75 key keyboard. An alarm began sounding, causing Ryuu to jump out of his seat.
“Something emitting reiatsu has been detected besieging the small wealthy (noexistent) nation of Riksent!” Shouted Eun, one of the shinigami stationed on the White Star.
Ryuu hesitated, “Other shinigami will handle it. We will remain on course.”
(Riksent Castle. Antebellum 3 monthes)
“Princess Shine, I’m so glad you are safe! Our soldiers are trying to keep them away, but they won’t be able to hold them off much longer. We have to get you somewhere safe!” The butler, Sir L’Dhal, urged.
“You’re overreacting” She sighed.
“Shine, you don’t understand. They don’t just want the gold-“
“-They want me, don’t they?” She interrupted bluntly
“…You truly are your parent’s daughter. Please, do not let the lives being lost out there to protect you be lost in vain!”
“I will go out there myself and cease this. Help is on the way. I can feel it.” Shine said confidently, walking towards the front of the castle. From somewhere in her dress twin pistols made their way into her hands.
‘She’s really become a fine heir. But…they won’t care about that’ :’Dhal sighed before walking behind her.
“Surrender.” Came a metallic voice. They had gotten in. He appeared human, but his expression was unrealistically neutral.
“Make me, I’ll kick your ***!” Shine replied, raising her guns.
“P-princess Shine, that’s unbecoming of a lady!”
“I mean…I shalt not surrender to thee. Hell hath no fury like an attacked princess!” Shine called out, shooting the being squad in the chest despite their dodging.
“A lady from THIS era, perhaps?” L’Dhal sighed as the little 13 year old princess continued to shoot the man.
“Then we shall take you by force.” The being said, even as bullets were filling up his flesh. He exploded as a bullet shot straight through his head. Unfortunately, it was at that moment that several more, all looking exactly alike, appeared in the chamber.
They moved with inhuman precision and speed, lightning fast and all in perfect coordination with one another. Shine, however, moved at a normal pace and dodged every strike and grab, even managing to disable one or two of them with a point-blank shot.
One would try to grab her leg, another her waist, another for her arm, one would be trying to knock her out via solar plexus. Anyone would be utterly amazed as this little girl would easily crush the one going for her foot with her high heel while evading the one trying to grab her waist and simultaneously shooting the ones going for her solar plexus and arm. For the moment, they were gone.
An Indian woman ran in, dressed in overextravagant clothing and caring a small strange gun-shaped weapon. “Princess, my name is Radha and I’m here to protect you.”
“Any help is appreciated, Radha” Shine smiled brightly. L’Dhal just nodded, if Shine could trust someone he certainly could. He grabbed a spear from one of those empty plate armor knights and twirled it around experimentally.
“We must find a way to get out of here” He said urgently.
“I saw this coming in my crystal ball weeks ago. I got first class tickets to Riksent immediately and prepared.” Radha said, as if that was something that happened every other Saturday. Several more of the strange beings appeared behind them. With expert precision Radha and Shine gunned them down before moving on. Radha pulled out a small remote. “Activate. Operation Schutzwald” She said into the remote carefully as they neared the balcony.
“We’re on the fourth floor, what are we going to do?” L’Dhal cried out, exasperated that their hero led them to a balcony.
Radha grabbed their hands and they all went headlong over the railing.
“We’ve arrived at our destination” Eun said, not taking her eyes off her screen.
“Eh? This isn’t it…” Ryuu murmured. “We’re in…Riksent!?”
“Oops” giggled Min as she grabbed her rifle.
“I SUPPOSE, while we’re here…” Ryuu sighed
Kai ran out with his two Compact Beam Guns, basically lasers. Gira was wearing a red armor. “Ryuu, what is this?” he asked as Ryuu showed them to their weapons.
“That is the MKIII, the third (Illegally, shame on you ILP) produced armor in the Weapon revolution. It was used as a prototype model when we were observing practicality in relation to your training data.” Ryuu replied, like he was giving the recipe for scrambled eggs.
The four of them quickly entered Riksent, finding their opponents to be rather powerful…
“ARL…10000.” Gira murmured as he looked on his
visor at the beings.
“…Bioroids” Ryuu murmured, near silently, as he began systematically slicing through them with his scythes. He noted that their remains exploded upon destruction or cease function.
In fact, they arrived just in time to watch the princess jump off a balcony.
(Present Time. Just because I can’t commit to 100% flashbacks.)
The boy yawned, pressing a button on his 3DS. “Let’s get this over with, I’m low on battery.” A map was displayed on his clearly non-stock 3DS. A 3D holographic map. Not stock indeed. “Blueprint.” The went around them instantly changed. The four of them were in a dark chamber. In fact, they were in two different chambers. The boy and the dragon were in a cave. Simply a cave. Although there were no openings. At all.
Meanwhile the girl and the tiger were in a pumpkin-shaped cave with many holes in it leading to other chambers.
“Ryukooh, why don’t you just give up now?” The boy yawned, closing his 3DS and putting it into his pocket-as well as destroying all light sources.
The dragon, Ryukooh, roared in response. There was no sky here, so he could not bring down lightning. Instead, electricity began charging in the dragon. However, it could not build up. “This cave is made of a mixture of iron sand veins and varying resistors. I can constantly change the outlay of the veins at the slightest moment. Your lightning is useless here.” He said dully, as Ryukooh continued to release electricity into the room.
“Koryuoh, come out to pla-ay~” The girl said in a singsong fashion. There was no light in this room, but she kne3w exactly how to fight in this room. When the tiger roared, winds attempted to pick up. But they died down. “This room is full of sand and pebbles, and it is connected to several vacuum chambers. Wind falls into the grooves in the walls, where it disturbs the sand and pebbles and gets forced into the other chambers. There is a time limit to this battle. But you are going to be the one who runs out.”
