Semi-finals: Battle 4 - Audiobabe (Sasjhwa) vs. Unitzoid (Fading Aura)
Here's a nasty one folks - our two remaining magicians - one of sound and one of water, and superheros to boot, are battling each other! This should be a tough match!
1 - Unitzoid draws water from the air and launches a large droplet, that starts to boil as it travels to Audiobabe! Audiobabe fires a precussive sound into the air, shattering the bubble, increasing each bit of water's surface area until it simply vaporizes.
2 - Audiobabe strikes the ground with a loud *THUMP*, and a soundwave rolls through the ground towards Unitzoid. As the ground buckles and shakes, Unitzoid leaps into the air on a geyser of water!
3 - Unitzoid, from above and falling, launches a blast of boiling water at Audiobabe, hitting her in the face! (12 damage). The blast redirect's Unitzoid so he lands safely a distance away in the sands.
4 - Audiobabe screams in pain, amplifying the scream naturally, and when Unitzoid lands, he is smashed by the soundwave, rupturing his eardrums! (13 damage) Unitzoid in a panic, draws water from Audiobabe herself! As the water vapor rushes out of Audiobabe's mouth, her skin cracks and peels! (13 damage).
5 - Unitzoid is trying to shake his head to clear the ringing in his ears, to no avail. Audiobabe meanwhile is gagging and gasping as her body tries to deliver water to her suddenly parched and damaged flesh!
6 - Audiobabe, giving up on making noise with her mouth, amplifes the roar of the crowd, and raises it's pitch to a squeal that sets half the audience shuddering. Unitzoid however, doesn't hear a damn thing, with his eardrums blown.
7 - Unitzoid looks up to see Audiobabe moving around, and launches a bolt of water that turns to ice as it flies, right at her! Audiobabe leaps out of the way, and the bolt smashes harmless into the chair RIGHT BESIDE Linkara! Linkara dies of shock.
8 - Unitzoid fires another icy blast, this time hitting Audiobabe in the chest, and sending her flying into the wall of the arena, where she falls to the ground in a crumple.
Winner: Unitzoid! Unitzoid, glows, gains a stat point, and heals.
Loser: Audiobabe. An ogre dressed as a boxing coach runs out, splashes Audiobabe with water, rubs her shoulders, towels off her wounds, and helps her off the arena floor.
Crossfire: "Thank you! That explains it very nicely, and in a language that someone other than a physicist can understand..."
Denial is not falsification. You can't avoid a fact just because you don't like it.
