Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 5, 2007, 9:32pm

Jake walks into the West Coast version of the danger room in his black training gear carrying a football. A few presses on the button pad by the door change the decor from sterile metal to an open arena, almost Roman in appearance. Walking into the middle he sets the ball down and stands around waiting for someone to show up

«Open to anyone and everyone in the mood for a friendly free for all»

Ox walks in, glancing around.

"Nice. Very Ben-Hur."

"That's what I was going for. Marty, right?"

"Hey, we met twice and he remembers my name. Better than most."

He grins at the football.

"We gonna play kill the QB? Usually I play O-line, but I'll make an exception."

"I was thinking about some no holds barred keep away."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 3:33pm

"Oh."

Looking a bit disappointed, Ox shrugs.

"I'm game. More fun if others show up, but whatever."

"That's what I was hoping for."

Jake throws Marty the ball

"If we get a decent turn out we could always do teams."


Re: Pick Up Game

Ox catches, planting his feet with a smirk.

"All right, little dude. Come and get me."

Jake starts glowing and hovers up a few inches off the ground, twisting light around himself to make it appear as if there are five of him in a row as all of them fly forward in a synchronized movement towards Ox

"Stop this."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 3:54pm

"Sure."

Ox tosses the ball straight up in the air, then does a surprisingly nimble tumble forward, straight beneath the entire line.

Then he rises as the football returns, now somewhat resembling a boomerang. He palms it, looking a bit surprised.

"Huh. That was a little reliant on getting what I wanted out of the thing, but eh. It worked."

Jake's extra images fade away as he throws his right fist forward and unleashes an arc of light covering the ground sides, with Marty in the middle


Re: Pick Up Game

Ox continues staring at the football, only looking up just in time to see the light blast.

"Shoot!"

He throws himself on the ground, looking up.

"Hey, if you want it that much, take it."

Marty throws the ball at Jake. Midflight, it sprouts several nasty looking blades, which proceed to revolve around the entire football in a blur as it speeds towards him.

"Shit!"

Jake throws up a construct wall in front of him hoping to god that it holds as he shoots light beams from his eyes over at Marty.

"Offense and defense"


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 4:09pm

"Yeah, yeah."

Ox was already back on his feet. He takes another tumble past the beams, as the bladed ball bounces from the construct, landing in the dirt at his feet.

He goes to pick it up, sees that the blades are still spinning madly and thinks better of it, scratching his head.

"Well, I'm not touching that damn thing."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 4:12pm

"That's pretty sick dude, you did that with just a touch?"

Jake goes into light mode as the artificial sun beats down on them


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 4:15pm

"Yeah, but as usual, I was going for a bomb and got something else. I'm not even sure what the hell that's supposed to be."

Marty reaches into his pocket, fetching a pack of gum. He taps it off of the ground, ending up with a harmonica. Then a bouquet of flowers. And finally a large pipe, which he jabs into the blades to slow them down.

Gingerly, he grabs the ball again quickly, managing to return it to a garden variety football.

Crap

"How the hell…?"


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 4:21pm

Ox shrugs again.

"Dunno. I'm just a dumb Ox. I don't know nothin."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 4:33pm

"I'll say this now dude, I'm glad you're on our side."

Jake laughs a bit as he takes a commanding pose in his lit up state


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 4:37pm

"Well, come and get the ball again. I'll see if I can keep from killing us this time, but no promises."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 5:03pm

"Alright"

Jake flies at him, shooting some beams of light in a semi circle in front of Ox trying to knock him off balance as he reaches for the ball


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 5:31pm

"Shoot."

Ox tosses his pipe at Jake as he sails in. It shifts into what looks like a boa constrictor in midair, wrapping around his neck.

In actuality it's a toy snake, as Marty can't make living objects. But a very lifelike one in any case.

"Uh…..what the hell…..?"


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 6:04pm

Jake grabs at the snake around his neck and winds up flying into a wall

"What the?"


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 6:14pm

"Huh."

Blinking, Ox looks around for an object. Sees nothing. Then glances down, shrugs and removes one of his shoes, which he pitches at Jake.

Just as it gets close to his head, the shoe sprouts a high heel, which connects with Jake's eye.


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 6:19pm

Jake manages to deflect the heel before it hits his eye

"Jeez man, little close there."

Seriously, would that have blinded me?

He throws both fists forward and starts blasting out beams of light


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 6:21pm

"Crud."

Ox throws up his arms to block, but that's little use. He sails through the air, smashing into a far wall as the football pops straight up, heading for the roof.


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 6:44pm

Jake jets up to grab the ball, taking advantage of being the flier in the room and grabs it

"MVP!"

He laughs in good nature as he drops down to land by Ox, still in light mode with his eyes charging a shot just in case he needs to use it


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 6:56pm

And then the ball ticks loudly once, twice, finally exploding in Jake's hands with enough force to send him sailing back to the far wall.

"Oops. Least that wasn't a very big one. I've done worse."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 7:03pm

Jake starts rubbing his back as he begins laughing

"Never saw that coming, good shot man."

Balls gone

He hops up to his feet and walks over to Ox, extending his hand

"So much for keep away, eh?"


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 7:13pm

Ox stumbles back to his feet without taking the hand, dusting himself off.

"I guess technically we both won. Or lost. Whatever."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Jake "Flare" Lange on May 6, 2007, 7:15pm

"Something like that, you kicked my ass though."


Re: Pick Up Game
Post by Marty "Ox" Banks on May 6, 2007, 7:19pm

Ox shrugs.

"Grah, looks like no one's joining in. I'll be back if the game picks up."

And off he goes, pulling a rubber band out of his pocket and attempting to turn it into something edible.
