[Shortly after eating the omelet his drone wife had prepared, Greed found himself looking across the table, not at his drone wife, but at Martel. He practically leaps from his chair, earning himself looks of surprise from Loa and Dolcetto who were sitting where his drone children had been.]

You guys aren't here

We've always been here.

[That voice sounded like a drone voice, and what the hell were those colors?]

Action: Around Town:

[He's out the door faster than they can ask him what's wrong.]

[But why are there sledgehammers at the end of every driveway? Where did the mailboxes go.]

[He freezes as someone passes him by. Then double takes.]

[Was that Bradley? What the hell was he doing in Mayfield?]

[He grabs the closest sledgehammer, that was convenient, and runs after Bradley.]

[If you happen to be walking the streets, he's coming after you with a mailbox, full shield mode.]

[Really, everyone in town has been acting completely insane. And that is saying something, coming from Kid. Something here is going on, but he still hadn't figured out what it was. He and Soul were headed home from school when they walked past Greed's house--]

[And Kid barely ducked out of the way of a swinging mailbox. What the hell?!]

From: [personal profile] cacophonicsoul
[It was kind of hard to not notice everyone going batshit insane. He and Kid were in the same boat. Soul honestly had no idea what could have caused people to start reacting so... violently.

And what was with all the mushrooms everywhere? ... Could that be it? Probably just a coincidence, but at this point, well, it couldn't hurt to look into it.
]

You know, I was thinking maybe it has something to do with all thes --

[Or maybe it would hurt. Who knows. Hard to say when someone SWINGS A MAILBOX AT YOU.

He jumps back, looking at Kid out of the corner of his eye, ready to transform as soon as he gave the word, his voice echoing Kid's thoughts.

What the hell?! Hope you're a fast learner, dude. Something tells me you've never used a scythe before.

Why the hell are there two of you, baby brother?

[His first swing was wide, he gets closer for the second one and aims for the Bradley on the right. The one spewing blue from his mouth. What was that, a new trick? Why did it only happen when he talked?]

I have used a scythe before.

[And that was pretty high on the list of worst days of Kid's life ok? Ok?! And he probably would've said more, except for hello that's a mailbox coming at his skull. And, well, you know--heads are kind of important.]

[He really would've consented to trying. Honestly. Really. Until he took a second to look at their assailant.]

[And...this guy with the mailbox is really...he's really symmetrical, guys. So the best Kid's going to do now is duck out of the way from the mailbox in question. The very though of attacking this guy upsets him.]

[Sorry, Soul. You are stuck with a meister about 1,000,000 times more irrational than Black*Star.]


What are you talking about?! I've never even seen you before!

Soul I can't--he's beautiful! He's perfectly symmetrical, look; even the lines. I would be worthless trash if I destroyed that!

From: [personal profile] cacophonicsoul
What? Kid are you serious? Dude, he's trying to bust our heads open with a mailbox.

[aaand he narrowly dodges that swing. Soul is nowhere near as quick on his feet as Kid and Greed are. Sure he could hold his own for the most part if he had to, but that wouldn't last too long.]

A bunch of stupid lines are really not what's important right now!

Oh, you must be from before the time when you slaughtered my comrades!

And you won't be calling my sledgehammer a mailbox when I finally land a hit on ya!

[Yeah, he's swinging that thing at you two again.]

[Kid was quick, but this time he wasn't fast enough. And it probably serves him right. When the mailbox collides with his head, he stumbles back, only fast enough to keep from hitting the back of his head on the ground as he fell. That hurt. A lot.]

[It's time to thank your lucky stars, Soul. When Greed grinned at making contact, Kid saw that the stranger had a chipped tooth.]

[On one side.]

[That knowledge, combined with his headache, was enough to convince him to try to suck it up do what had to be done to keep from getting himself and Soul killed. Nervous breakdown later.]


Okay, Soul. Please transform.

[SOUL IS THANKING ALL OF THE STARS.]

On it. [He nods and with a bright flash of blue jumps up as he transforms. The scythe spins in the air and lands in Kid's hands. LET'S DO THIS THING.]

[THE. FUCK. JUST. HAPPENED?]

[Greed's grin slips as one of the Bradleys grabs the other as he transforms into a scythe.]


I thought you just had the ultimate eye? Did Pops upgrade you?

[Yep, he's swinging that sledgehammer again.]

[Kid catches Soul and tries not to cringe. Take a few seconds. You're a Shinigami, and you know how to use a scythe. There is no reason to panic whatsoever. It still takes Kid a few seconds to calm the rush of panic that flows through him, gritting his teeth. Don't focus on the fact that Soul is a scythe. He's a Deathscythe, you are a Shinigami. You're compatible enough. And if you don't suck it up, this moron with a mailbox is going to kill you.]

[Instinct wins long enough for him to block the most recent swing with the mailbox, but the awkward movement is enough to knock him off his balance for a few seconds. After re-orienting himself, he takes a minute to adjust. Kid's used to having two hands that can move independently of one another, and he just doesn't have that freedom with Soul. He has to figure out how to balance himself with the shift of weight, as well, before he dared take a swing. Anything less calculated would be foolish; he and Soul were at a marked disadvantage because they just didn't work together as a pair to start with. To make a mistake like not making sure he could keep his balance if he were hit would only make matters worse.]


All right, ready Soul?

[That was really more of a warning than a question, because he knew his swing wouldn't be as practiced as Maka's and he wanted Soul to be expecting it. So now that he's got the stance straight, he swings at Greed hard, going for his side. With a little luck, he could knock Greed down and get some leverage.]

[ Lust immediately sharpens her nails and tosses them towards the mailbox in an attempt to slice it through. She seems pretty sarcastic as gets ready to fight Greed. ]

Sorry, Greed, you'll have to return to sender. [ He'll be going right back into daddy's glorious holy homonculus uterus. ]

[As soon as her spears emerge, he knows he's not dealing with Bradley, but Lust in some strange disguise.]

You're really trying to piss me off today, aren't you Sis?

[He picks up another sledgehammer and aims for those spears.]

From: [identity profile] luxuriality.livejournal.com
[ She's not really in any strange disguise but seeing him act so enraged is definitely interesting, to her at least.

But, without missing a moment, she sends her nails towards the sledgehammer's shaft, hoping to completely slice it so he can't use it against her any longer. ]


Greed, I haven't heard for you in weeks. Are those hormones getting to you again?

Date: 2011-11-22 07:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] all-ofthethings.livejournal.com
Nah, I just haven't had you around to take out my anger on lately.

From: [identity profile] luxuriality.livejournal.com
Well then, allow me to retribute. [ The ultimate spear vs. the ultimate shield? This will be good. She cautiously waits, making sure to keep a second set of nails on stand by behind her five, long, slender spears. ]

[ She now begins to shoot out her first hand as well, diving them in hopes to stab just underneath the arm. She doesn't state a word to Greed though.

ooc: Lust's spear says it can penetrate anything, Greed's shield says it can defend from anything. So obviously we should do a super alchemical explosion of Ishvalan souls y/y? ]

[Mart takes the mailbox, smashing into his nigh invulnerable skin doesn't do much.

This time I've got the advantage, baby brother. I know who you are.

[He tosses aside the ruined mailbox. Wait? Hadn't that been a sledgehammer a minute ago?]

He stares at it a moment, then realizes all the sledgehammers at the end of the driveways were never sledgehammers.
