You are the Disciple of History's Strongest

Post by Brian Boru on Tue Apr 08, 2014 2:22 am

Welcome to the world of HSDK, home to some of the most absurdly powerful martial artists to ever stride across fiction. You...are not one of them, not by a long shot.

However you DO have potential to become so, the reason being... you're now one Kenichi Shirahama, a freshman at a local highschool and a recent member of the local Karate Club. And also hopefully, History's Strongest Disciple.

As I know no one intends to be a doormat in this RP you CAN twist your character's background...slightly... so that you're new actions aren't severely ooc for the NPC that know Kenichi, however it DOES have to be recognizably similar to Kenny's original background.

Just summarize something and I'll make a call on whether or not you can use it.

Once that's done we'll start at the beginning of the series, the rush to school that first day.

You're running down the street in a mad attempt to get to school on time when you're suddenly sent spinning through the air before landing on the hard concrete with a painful THUD! As you try and figure out just what the fuck just happened, you hear a female voice apologizing for throwing you vociferously, you think she's coming from your side and up but you're honestly not sure as the world is still spinning.

"The ground," I mutter, slightly dazed from the impact ... fortunately, nothing seems to be bleeding. And it's a little sad I can instinctively tell this. Voice of experience.

Ow.

"The ground, it is hard."

One big difference... I probably wouldn't have let my friendship with Ryuto break down over some stupid fucking pin.

I'd also be quite a bit more... ruthless when pushed. Oh, and I fully intend to try and turn this into a Harem Anime. Wink

"Ouch the fuck was that..."

I look down and see her skirt... which is so short you can probably see up it while she's sitting.

"Is that thing regulation?"  Shocked 

There's probably a small dribble of blood then I shake myself to get to my senses.

"Seriously girl, what the hell is up with randomly attacking people on the street?"

"Oh my GOSH I'M SO SORRY. Here, let me help you up."

You're eventually righted correct side up and brought back to you're feet. By the prettiest blonde you've ever seen in your life. She's wearing glasses and her hair is in a long braided pony-tail. She also looks like she was half POURED into that uniform. Seriously where did they get jackets in sizes like that?

She bows again, an embarrassed flush on her face, "I'm sorry about that. Are you alright?"

Cheeky little devil aren't you.

Sideways actually.

She doesn't get it at first but flushes like a firehydrant when it gets through and she shifts her stance so the glance of heaven is taken away.

Heh

"Seriously girl, what the hell is up with randomly attacking people on the street?"

"I'm sorry but you shouldn't have snuck on me like that. And isn't it the natural response to retaliate against an attack from behind?"

Where did she learn that? Hit-man camp?

I droll a bit.

"I'm not dead..."


Sideways actually.

YES!

She doesn't get it at first but flushes like a firehydrant when it gets through and she shifts her stance so the glance of heaven is taken away.

"Seriously, and while I might regret saying this, I think you might have made a mistake ordering your uniform..."

"I'm sorry but you shouldn't have snuck on me like that.  And isn't it the natural response to retaliate against an attack from behind?"

Where did she learn that?  Hit-man camp?

"If by 'snuck up on you' you mean 'walked behind you', and by 'attack from behind' you mean 'attempted to pass you', then yes..." I pause, "And just to disclaim, that was sarcasm. Seriously, where the hell did you learn that?"

Try every half year since about 2 years ago, the guy is seriously hopping around ALL OVER Eastern Asia.

Of course!

Heh

I droll a bit.

She doesn't seem to notice, or either thinks you're a bit discombobulated with that toss.

"I'm not dead..."

"Well I'm glad, this is my first day at this new school and I didn't want to hurt a fellow school mate."

YES!

Relentless aren't you?

"Seriously, and while I might regret saying this, I think you might have made a mistake ordering your uniform..."

"Ac...actually, this is the biggest size they had..." Dear god she's adorable....

"If by 'snuck up on you' you mean 'walked behind you', and by 'attack from behind' you mean 'attempted to pass you', then yes..." I pause, "And just to disclaim, that was sarcasm. Seriously, where the hell did you learn that?"

She flushes like a neon light again, and she mentions that her grandfather taught her a few tricks....she's about to introduce herself properly, just now realizing that she hasn't given her name when the warning bell from the school sounds off in the faint distance, you get another tardy and you might be having a parent-teacher conference...shudder....

That almost makes up for the rough landing.

She bows again, an embarrassed flush on her face, "I'm sorry about that.  Are you alright?"

"On one hand, that was amazing. On the other, ow."

While I'm pretty sturdy out of necessity, it's actually been a bit of time since the last time anyone got their hands on me. It may not be glamorous or anything, but I'd learned the value in discretion ... there was a half-remembered thing that kept me wanting to try out for various martial arts clubs or classes, but that never ended well.

Well, at least I'd gotten half-joking offers to try out for track and field as a result. Which is kind of sad. Try to learn how to defend yourself, end up learning how to take a punch and run away like a boss.

I wince some as I experimentally stretch a bit. Not _too_ sore.

"Okay, I'm being a little too dramatic. I'm actually kind of sturdy," I pause to give her uniform another look. For obvious reasons as well. "Transferring in?"

There is no way the rumor mill would have missed someone like -this-.

Any chance I could re-use the background from the previous game?

Or how far off the rails are you willing to go here?

My current idea would be that I basically discovered the Shirahama talent for ranged combat early (assuming that it exist in this instance the same way it did in the previous game), and combined this with some sports/athletics to avoid bullies and/or scare them off for the most part. Thus, no joining the Karate-club, for example.

Heh

Catalog, she doesn't recall what it was called.

I sigh. "Lets talk and walk... so, what's your name and from the looks of things and your build I'd say 'a few tricks' translates in 'average person' to 30 ways to break a man in half with your pinky. Am I correct?"

She smiles, dear god you think you got diabetes, it was that sweet, seemingly glad you're sticking around. She introduces herself as Miu Fuurinji she'd just transferred from an all-girls school that you KNOW for a fact is much better scholastically than your own.

When you mention the 'break an man' she flushes a bit and says, "Twelve actually...and you need at least one whole hand."

She then claps a hand over her mouth, seems she didn't mean to say that bit.

More embarrassed blushing.

Ah so your method is turtle up then run like a squirrel huh? Alright.

She seems glad you're alright and she apologizes for her body reacting unconsciously but isn't it common sense to do that if someone comes up on you from behind?

She also says that she IS a new transfer, her name is Miu Fuurinji and she just transferred in from an all-girls school, the name you recognize belonging to a REALLY prestigious school in the area, MUCH more so than the one you're now attending.

Karate club is non-optional but I'll accept you being a semi-sniper with a thrown rock and the karate was a way to augment your repertoire with some close range defenses, but with Daimonji the mullet-wearing Sasquatch, you're starting to have your doubts about the wisdom of this move.

Also what was your character?

"That....actually seems a little familiar...."

"Alright. Thought so. Okay, I will forgive you... if you'll train me! And allow me to train you to control your combat instincts better..."

She seems to think on that for a moment, then says that she'll think about the training bit mostly because she has to figure out what to start you out with, but she DOES seems willing.

Either way you both realize that just walking to school isn't going to cut it. She knows a short-cut that'll get the two of you there on time.

Yeah. Somehow, before too long it had become like that.

She seems glad you're alright and she apologizes for her body reacting unconsciously but isn't it common sense to do that if someone comes up on you from behind?

"Well, I suppose, if you're Duke Togou," I mutter. "Which I'm not sure is a compliment or not given that he's a fictional stone-cold hitman."

At least my bag's battened down enough that this wasn't much of an issue for anything but my physical well-being. When you run a lot, you take care that your things don't rattle around or fall out.

She also says that she IS a new transfer, her name is Miu Fuurinji and she just transferred in from an all-girls school, the name you recognize belonging to a REALLY prestigious school in the area, MUCH more so than the one you're now attending.

"Shirahama Kenichi," I introduce myself with a short bow. Then give her an understanding look. "I guess even at those places bullying can get pretty bad if you stand out. Spectacularly attractive girl like yourself. Though I guess it probably took only one or two ... dozen ... getting thrown to get the message and they switched to ignoring you and making snide comments."

Yeah, I've been bullied by professionals and managed to develop a bit of a thick skin regarding that, both literal and less so, but that doesn't mean I can't feel bad for someone going through a similar experience. Only with less physical pain for them involved.

"Sorry but ..." glance down at watch. Wince. "We'd better run if we want to make it! C'mon Duchess!"

Away we go, and let the games begin!

When that gets through she flushes like a fire hydrant and stares at the outfit, she looks like she's contemplating ripping the ensemble off right then and there. She doesn't but she looks like she's considering it.

"Yes please!"

She leads you down a couple of alleys and over a wall or two, then you reach the stream that cuts the town in half, it's at least 20 feet to the other side and she stands on the railing. The she leaps....the entire distance and lands on the railing on the other side with perfect poise and balance. Looking around you notice that there are some stepping stones about three feet across at the bottom of the stream. You might be able to scramble down, hop across them, then scramble up the other side quickly enough, or you could try the jump yourself.

Oh, what the hell, you only live ... once ...

"A martial arts manga. I've run into someone out of a martial arts manga ..." I mutter, clambering up the fence and trying not to die as I take a less over the top version of her shortcut. Because I wasn't aware that people could _do that_. I mean, I've seen parkour vids online, so some of it isn't new, but this and that are like running track in grade school and winning olympic gold. Worlds apart.

She thanks you for the advice but when did she ever say that she was a martial artist?

"Not all of us can roof-jump."

She flushes and apologizes but the two of you continue your dash you make it to class barely and I do mean BARELY in time, however the racket you make does cause the disciplinarian of your homeroom teacher to make you stand outside for the next half hour, interestingly enough Miu joins you after introducing herself. If she asks then she says that it was partially her fault you were late even if she tried to make it up with the shortcut.

She goes red like a traffic light at that.

That smile makes you feel you're walking on air...for all of the ten seconds before the warning bell can be heard in the distance.

Oh, what the hell, you only live ... once ...

"A martial arts manga. I've run into someone out of a martial arts manga ..." I mutter, clambering up the fence and trying not to die as I take a less over the top version of her shortcut. Because I wasn't aware that people could _do that_. I mean, I've seen parkour vids online, so some of it isn't new, but this and that are like running track in grade school and winning olympic gold. Worlds apart.

Eventually you reach the stream that cuts the town in half, you notice some stepping stones someone set in the stream, but when she clambers onto the railguard, instead of climbing down the thing to the stones, she instead leaps the twenty feet to the other guardrail, landing with perfect grace and poise, she then turns to you and says, "Now it's your turn."

"No worries."

but the two of you continue your dash you make it to class barely and I do mean BARELY in time, however the racket you make does cause the disciplinarian of your homeroom teacher to make you stand outside for the next half hour, interestingly enough Miu joins you after introducing herself.

Racket? You mean opening the door and trying to get in? Bullshit japanese idiot school system.

I mutter in english the whole time.

If she asks then she says that it was partially her fault you were late even if she tried to make it up with the shortcut.

"It's all good. By the way, I didn't have a chance to introduce myself..."

And I do. And I'm sure we chat quite a bit.

BTW, I intend to only stop by the Karate Club long enough that day to inform them I've found a teacher and no longer have time to attend. I have no intention of sitting through a day of not being taught.

They'll need another mop boy.

"I don't actually have the training to pull that off you know," I reply, getting over the guard-rail and sliding down the concrete incline. Hm. Going to need new shoes soon. The treads on these are getting a bit worn down. I go across the stepping stones - there's not enough room for me to get much speed up so taking it safe is better than getting soaked and possibly banging my head on concrete - and up one of the little set of ladder rung thingies that's, fortunately enough, set into the opposite embankment.

"You're teaching me how to do that by the way," I tell Miu when we're on the way again, after that little stumbling block.

Also what was your character?
The brother who had Kenichi's back when it really mattered, but otherwise usually went off to do his own thing (for example, working part-time at the Chinese Restaurant where Renka shows up later). Also, mostly trained under Shigure where Kenichi mostly trained under the other Masters.

“No, you’re still alive but I’m so sorry I did that to you, here let me help you up.” Once you’re on your feet, she apologizes again, but mentions that it was a natural reflex that made her do that.

The club captain Saijo Tsukuba, grunts and nods, only asking that you turn in your dogi as that’s club property.

That big ape Daimonji simply laughs and says it’s about time the runty little chicken shit stopped making everyone weaker just by being near them.

If she's doing that while still crouching on top of said fence ... "Duchess, not that I don't appreciate it and won't carry the image with me until my dying day, but please, for the sake of my concentration, if you're going to wear a skirt that short? Bike shorts under it would work better."

Yes, well, she's given me a clear and present goal to strive towards. Motivation counts for a lot. Speaking of motivation, school!

I thank her for helping me up and quickly check myself over. "It's alright, I guess. Though I'm pretty sure throwing other people around isn't a 'natural' reflex. Are you some kind of Judo prodigy, or something like that?"

Looking at her again, I also catch a glance at a nearby clock, which reminds me why I was running at full tilt in the first place. "Err... would you mind talking on the move? Because I'm kinda running late..."

When you get out of the hall you find yourself with nothing to do for several hours, Miu said something about gymnastics club, you got the general idea where that is, you want to go check and see how she’s doing? Or just head on home? Or something else?

She was standing on the ground and just reached over to help you up over it. If she were still on the fence she’d also flush like a hydrant and mention something about hating skirts.

Well you BARELY make it in time, by some miracle the teacher doesn’t send you out in the hall. You hear Miu introduce herself and manage to get a seat next to you and smiling when she sits down. Class goes about as normal as possible for the rest of the day. Then Karate club….you know you joined the class to get AWAY from bullies NOT find the nastiest ones possible…..

Oh. Well, in that case, no help necessary. It's piss easy. You lean over the top, grab onto the opposite side with one hand, pivot your legs over while your chest is acting as pivot point and swing around. Your other hand is holding onto the top of the fence. Then you just keep holding on and land your legs on the ground.

Faggots like him live for attention... so give him absolutely none.

Oh hell yes do I see how she's doing.... H_H

After I inform her its time for training... I just need to pick up something from home...

"As for what I have in mind, I need to know how many yen you have on you. And its not because I want your money, but rather we're going to be making using of the arcade..."

If she asks what training I outline it...

First, we are going to the local arcade.

Then we will go to one of the shooting games, one of the ones where you're given a lineup of targets, some friendly and some not, and must shoot them all.

She will play that game until either she runs out of yen or I am satisfied with her progress.

As she has awesome martial artist reflexes she must play while dizzy. And as she's used to facing physical adversity, she must do so under adverse conditions. In otherwords, she must shoot perfect while dizzy standing in buckets of ice water...

And if she fails beat a level or shoots an innocent, she must consume a single drops of my favorite hot sauce which I remove from my jacket and hold out with a smile.

The bottle is jet black with a with a strange screw in glass stopper on the top. That wouldn't be so bad if the stopper's top wasn't in the shape of a skull.

Also disheartening was the image on the label, a leering demonic skull that seemed to be on fire.

Of course, that was nothing compared to the label...

El Diablo's Special Stock Blazing Demonic XXXXX Inferno Hellfire Death Sauce
Guaranteed to make you feel like the prettiest boy in prison the next morning!
WARNING: Please consult your physician: You literally might Die.
Made In George, USA

"This sauce is made from special pepper that only grows in a secret location deep in the jungles of South America that can only be safely harvested while wearing full hazmat gear and a gas mask. This sauce costs 5000 yen a bottle and is illegal in seven countries. It is technically a chemical weapon according to the Geneva convention."

I walk over to a vending machine and get a cup of hot tea and a hot burrito. I remove the lid and it's actually a glass dropper.

Then I let a single drop fall into the tea.

The bottom melts out almost as soon as it hits.

After I gently run it along the inside of burrito and take a bite.

"So, let's begin the training..."

And if she complains I do point out that her training is probably going to be just as painful. And of course, like a gentleman, I'll take her out for an ice cream sunday afterwards. After all, nothing kills the burn like Ice Cream!

"I'd guess more than just a little," I reply, rubbing one of the spots that were still sore from the impact. "Well, either that, or you're *insanely* talented. Though you, er... might wanna talk to your teacher about this. I can see a reflex like that being useful in a fight, but it could end up getting you in trouble at school if you'd end up using it on other students. You seem like a nice girl, so I doubt you'd want that."

[pause]

"Still, gotta admit that I'm a little jealous that you can do something like that so easily. I joined the Karate club not too long ago because I was interested in learning how to better defend myself - particularly since the teachers never seem to believe that the guy throwing stones might just really *not* be the attacker or instigator - but they don't really seem to be teaching anything there, so I'll probably just quit. Maybe I could join the school you're going to, though, if it's a good one?"

Ugh. Yeah, that'd be a tad annoying. Dad was easily distracted for the most part, but Mom certainly wouldn't just let that go. Though, considering that she seemed to be new (huh; totally forgot to ask about that), it seems kinda weird that she already knows a shortcut. Still, nothing to lose here, so I might just as well risk it.

"Alright, lead the way, please!"

Well you're used as a punching bag and moping boy for about an hour and a half. While you're cleaning up after the club is done, you notice that the kicking bag is just sitting there....beckoning to you....

Gorgeous blonde in a leotard flipping and bending in amazing positions...what do you think. She does AMAZINGLY well though you notice that the captain, the local heartthrob, seems more than a little angry about being shown up so badly, the other girls are going gaga.

She does seems tempted by ice cream and if you remind her that she sent you flying head over heels for accidentally brushing past her she's guilted into going along with it. She's also quite horrified at the 'stuff' you try to tell her is hotsauce.

It takes a few hours but you think you gotten her to the "not-attack-first-always" mentality you were aiming for. She working on her third icecream cone as you walk along the street when you accidentally bump into, to your dismay, a trio of streets toughs.

The one you bumped into seems to take offense at your social faux pax and wants you to compensate him.
