monday meme seance: www a hundred years i'd hit that meme dot com

You've seen her across the room a hundred times - oh, maybe it's him? - and for some reason you've always been too shy to say it... Or maybe it's a complete stranger and you're feeling kind of brave? Either way, you're compelled to let this person know that you'd hit it. You would so hit that.

Hell, if you don't, feel free to tell that person: no, I would not.

No guarantees can be made!

The Rules:
  • Post with your character. Include name, series, and any preferences in the subject line.
  • Other characters are gonna reply and confess whether or not they'd hit dat.
  • Play out the reactions. Add in a setting! Take it to a room. Whatever you'd like.
  • Tag around.
  • Have fun and be excellent to each other!

Idiom is problematic. I deny the plausibility of your fist connecting.
drywall: (hello hello baby you called)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 08:17 am (UTC)(link)
You are assuming a fist is the only thing you can be hit with. If one were to avoid close quarters combat altogether and make use of artillery or a high caliber sniper rifle, their odds would increase drastically.
russiancrow: (шесть)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 08:28 am (UTC)(link)
I offer concurrence. Artillery is a worthwhile expenditure for a complicated target.

A sniper holds likewise good odds. However, myself sniping first is not unlikely. Limited investment, bountiful experience. Prior funerary arrangements are advisable.
drywall: (but who was phone?)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 08:33 am (UTC)(link)
My own aim with a sniper is adequate, but there are definitely many who are better at it than I am. Not only that, but the proposed question doesn't offer details regarding terrain, equipment, time of day, tactical support...

Too risky. I wouldn't attempt to strike you under such unknown circumstances if it wasn't made absolutely necessary.
russiancrow: (четырнадцать)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 08:45 am (UTC)(link)
The original question is assuredly lacking. I suggest the one making the inquiry to have no training, limited background in the field.

The decision is complicated. Unknown circumstances include the uncertainty of myself being aware of your exploits. Known, unknown, the chance of me hitting you first is not zero. The most advisable course of action is to escape, leaving unvalued associates behind for a trap.

[ Ruthless. Not a bad strategy, though. ]

Before that, even, I would attempt some sort of truce or negotiation. When available, nonviolent solutions are always best.
russiancrow: (восемь)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 01:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[If nothing else, Vorona knows the benefits of being ruthless. Which is why she merely stares for a moment at the suggestion of negotiations. She can't really argue with the logic of it... but still...] Nonviolence limits the damages. Revenge and indemnity cancelled. Indubitably it is the choice of wisdom, when the potential exists.

However... [She looks away, almost a little sulky if you squint.] It is tedious.
drywall: (I can handle it)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 01:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There was certainly a time when negotiating wasn't an option Sousuke would have considered - when fight or die were the only options he even knew of. It's only been within the past couple years that he's even begun to learn that there are more ways to survive than just that, and that some of these solutions may have better long-term results. ]

Perhaps, but dragging out a fruitless battle is tedious and dangerous. Even so, I think I know what you mean.

[ When fighting's what you know, it's not easy to shrug off those instincts. ]
russiancrow: (девять)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 01:55 pm (UTC)(link)
[Peace is fine. Peace is admirable. But Vorona wants to fight, and she wants to fight opponents worth fighting, of which there seem to be increasingly few. That said, she wouldn't start a war just so she could fight. She'll just go where the fighting is, instead - and, if possible, let other people handle negotiations, while she quietly reads her books.

She looks back at her conversation partner, then, with a hint of curiosity that would be a glaring sign of danger to the few people who know her.]

You possess experience in battle?
drywall: (dressed to kill)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 02:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[ In his case, it isn't so much a want to fight - it's just what comes naturally to him now. It wasn't always that way, not that he remembers such times, but now he feels more at home in the trenches than he does walking down a peaceful suburban avenue. It's all about familiarity.

Which is how he knows this woman is a fighter, and how he knows to keep himself a bit on edge just in case. ]


[ A lot. ]

You as well?
russiancrow: (семь)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 02:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[That insistence on non-violence was kind of a turn-off, but... she's still interested.]

Affirmative. Hand-to-hand, blades, guns, heavy artillery. Assorted other items and methods have also occurred.

[Her first kill was with a hair dryer. But don't hold it against her, she'd only just turned ten at the time.]
drywall: (yeah sure whatever)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 02:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He's quiet for a moment, looking her over briefly. He's not the type to give out information freely, but... ]

Close-to-midrange firearms, hand-to-hand, proficiency with combat knives, guerilla warfare in various environments, demolitions. Some experience in vehicular combat as well.

[ ... the vehicles being giant robots ]
russiancrow: (тринадцать)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 03:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[She would love to add giant fighting robots to her huge repertoire of weapons that she can just about manage with, but alas, she presumes something more mundane, like tanks, and doesn't inquire any further.]

Your preferred fighting method, I would like to be informed of it.
drywall: (Default)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[ To be fair he could operate a tank with basic proficiency, though he's far from an expert at it. He's learned a lot of shit. ]

Armed at midrange. Why?
russiancrow: (четыре)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 03:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[That makes two of them.]

Curiosity is the predominant motivation. [Not a complete lie, but definitely not the whole truth, either.] The possibility of testing your skills also exists.

[She won't insist, however. She's been trying to play nice - if only because she's going after bigger targets these days, which has required shifting her priorities around - but she does miss the thrill of a good fight. She can't not be tempted.]
drywall: (just disarming bombs nbd)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There's a pause before he answers. ]

... Do you mean "sparring"?

[ He has a bad history with sparring. ]
russiancrow: (один)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[... Some history, indeed. For what it's worth, Vorona totally agrees with his methods. Clearly they're braintwins as well as scar twins. (All right, so hers isn't on her jaw...)]

Sparring connotes pulling punches. Skill testing would be improved by fighting in seriousness.

[And leaving a corpse. Yes, thank you Vorona, that's a smashing idea.]
drywall: (face the facts)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 07:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[ That's a notion he seems to consider for a moment before frowning sternly.

... More sternly than usual, that is. ]

One of us would probably die. I have skills that are vital to my team's operation, so that isn't something I can allow.

[She lets out a soft sigh, closing her eyes. Of course, he has a point. The same kind of reasoning is why she's playing nice while she focuses on higher targets.

Still, she can't honestly deny being just a little disappointed.]

So be it.
drywall: (one step at a time)

[personal profile] drywall 2015-07-28 07:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[ It isn't like he's not curious himself. And the only way to learn how to fight capable opponents is by... well, fighting capable opponents. Maybe...

Hm. ]

If we set a weapon and time limit, it might be feasible. Even if you're capable of killing me, I'm certain I could make it take a while.
russiancrow: (одиннадцать)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-28 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[She studies him for a moment, as if trying to see how serious he is - or simply judging if it's worth it, of course. But why not? Even if they'll have to cut it short, she could do with a little letting loose.

Besides, some part of her appreciates his acknowledgement that she might kill him. More than flattering, it feels like a basic form of respect - and she grants him the same in return.]

I confirm. Your appearance is not that weak.

[Not that she immediately thinks he's strong, but... she's keeping an open mind.]

It is agreed. The time limit is five minutes. Choosing the weapon is in your care.

[ he would hit it in both meanings of the phrase. ]

Oh? You sound confident of yourself.
russiancrow: (двенадцать)

[personal profile] russiancrow 2015-07-29 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[Such a gentleman!]

I affirm. Absolutely certainty cannot exist. However, experience corroborates the success percentage of hitting being diminutive.
rubbery: (♠ i've got my target on you)

[personal profile] rubbery 2015-07-30 07:41 am (UTC)(link)
[ yes a gentlemanly ... disgusting clown... ... ]

So you're saying you're rarely hit? Mm. That might be true where you come from, but would it still be true here?

[There can be no judgment, only awesome hair.]

Considering my presence in this place, there are no obstacles to confirming for yourself.

[If she seems a little pissy under the layers of ice queen, well... after coming to Ikebukuro, she's been taken down a peg or two more than she's comfortable with.

But she's still an excellent fighter, and she'll damn well get good enough to take out bartenders and black bikers alike - not to mention a few others while she's at it.]
