Hanging Out With His Cousin [Hyuuga social training]

Post by Gara » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:36 pm

The sun had just broken over the horizon as Taiyo made his way over to a small outcropping of trees near the place he was staying at. He had ventured out to Fur country with three of his elder sisters in hopes of being able to get some pointers in his Jyuuken training, but they all had other things to do. This caused Taiyo to venture out on his own and was why he was currently striking a tree repeatedly. His fingers hurt like hell, and there seemed to be no damage being done to the tree. It actually did not take long for Taiyo’s fingers to begin to bleed. “What the hell am I doing wrong? Are my fingers not strong enough? Am I hitting it wrong? Why the hell am I such a failure at being a Hyuuga?!” Taiyo yelled at the sky as he collapsed to his knees clutching his right hand with his left.

His greatest regret in life was that he could not even use the basic form of the clan’s main fighting style; Jyuken. Taiyo very much wanted to learn how to utilize it and was willing to put himself through hell to learn it. However, as he sat on his knees on the ground he thought of something and activated his Byakugan. There was no internal damage that had been done to the tree, which meant that Taiyo had been striking the tree without releasing any chakra into it. This made Taiyo feel incredibly stupid, and also made him realize that it was probably the cause of him causing so much damage to his fingers.

After waiting a while for his fingers to stop bleeding, and aching, Taiyo once again began to strike the tree, however, this time he made sure to release chakra out of his fingertips into the tree with each strike. Every time that Taiyo struck the tree, and actually released his chakra into it the way he was supposed to, his fingers hurt less, and bits and pieces of the tree flew off. Because his doujutsu was still active he could also see the damage that he was doing to the inside of the tree as well. While he was doing the most damage to the tree internally by releasing his chakra into it upon each hit, Taiyo was still striking the tree with his full strength. This caused even more damage to his fingers, though they did not hurt nearly as bad as they had before. He continuously struck the tree, wanting to perfect his attacking motions, and after about twenty minutes he was able to cause the tree to fall over from the damage he had caused to it. Once the tree had fallen to the ground Taiyo uncovered his left eye, after making sure that no one was around to see him, and lit the fallen tree on fire so that he could warm his body back up. After the tree had begun to burn Taiyo covered his left eye back up, and canceled his doujutsu.

Hanging Out With His Cousin [Hyuuga social training]

Post by Pogonophile » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:12 pm

Sometimes a girl just needed to get away from everything. Ever since the family had hired a home nurse to help with take care of their father, all of the family's children had been granted a great deal of relief from their daily tasks and responsibilities. As grand as this was, Himiko did agree to be responsible for paying for the hired help. Frankly, that shit wasn't cheap. Needless to say, this would probably be one of her last free days before she began to grind out missions to even allow her to perform the missions in the first place. There was some redundancy to this, yes. But, it was her father's will. He knew she had potential. But it was merely up to her to find out just what kind of potential she had to begin with. Perhaps that was why she had ventured out of her native homeland of Hi no Kuni into one of its neighbors. What she didn't expect out of her travels was to hear the word "Hyuuga" from behind the coverings of the dense forests surrounding the trail she was walking.

Instinctively, her Byakugan activated and immediately peered towards the source of the sound. Her first thought was that it was some bandit who had managed to recognize her heritage and was about to attempt to abduct her sacred doujutsu. Luckily for her there was no threat in sight. Instead, it was merely a fellow clansman who obviously wasn't very good at learning the basics of their clan's powerful hijutsu. Honestly she couldn't blame the boy. Jyuuken was not an easy Taijutsu to learn. It wasn't just about punching as hard as one could. Hell it wasn't even a requirement. It required control and precision. Himiko was far from an expert but she could see the flaw in the boy's style. He wasn't exactly taking advantage of releasing chakra from the tenketsu in his hands and fingers. No wonder why he was toppled over in pain.

With a soft sigh, she deactivated her eyes and began darting between the branches of the trees until finding the clearing where he stood. Watching from behind a tree, the girl watched as his form gradually began to increase. Eventually, he did knock down the tree and surprisingly light it on fire? Guess he was just angry at it. To be fair, it wasn't the tree's fault he was hurting. "You know, its called the Gentle Fist for a reason, right?" she said with a soft chuckle as she finally allowed her presence to be found. "Its not about how hard you hit, but just how accurately you do. Stop using those man muscles kiddo." Giving the boy a small smile, she slowly approached before offering a hand not really to shake but to quickly bandage those injured fingers. She recognized him from the clan but never had been acquainted with him properly. Maybe because he didn't really partake in their training as shown by his technique, or lack thereof.

Taiyo's face fell when he heard someone mock him from behind, and was about to tell the person to fuck off until he turned around. It was a member of his clan, not a girl he was familiar with, but he had seen her around before. He laughed awkwardly as he allowed her to bandage his hand. “See I THOUGHT that was the point, but my older brother said that was a misconception. I should have known he was screwing with me. But I seem to be making progress. What do you think? How is my form now?” Taiyo began to strike another nearby tree, releasing his chakra into it with each light tap.

However, as he was demonstrating his form and posture, his headband fell off, revealing his left eye that seemed to be forever cased in fire. While he would usually panic and rush to cover it back up, Taiyo was so focused on what he was doing that he had not even noticed that his headband had fallen off. As soon as the second tree collapsed to the ground Taiyo turned and smiled at the fellow Hyuuga. “So how bad is it? No need to hold back.” Taiyo laughed merrily as he finished speaking.

The girl gave a soft chuckle, shaking her head no. There was nothing in the world that said that you couldn't go full out and punch shit till they were dead, but the Hyuuga did not need to do that. Strength was not a vast requirement for their techniques to be effective and they as a clan had evolved way past the need for such a barbaric technique. After all, Jyuuken focused on inflicting internal damage. Most people can't train their organs after all. Once struck, the damage was done. Well, at least until proper medical treatment was found. “You definitely have room to approve. You’re still relying on your strength. It’s making you too rigid and linear. This isn’t Gouken. Here…how about this, why don’t you watch me for a little bit. Hell, you can even mimic my movements if that might help you out?”

While the boy continued attacking his own tree, Himiko took a spot a couple meters away. She picked a tree with a fat and sturdy trunk that by herself she probably never could punch through at her current level. But what it did allow was her to show the very basic principals of the style. By taking a big breath, the girl slowly exhaled as she took the standard fighting stance. And in an instant she launched forward with a simple strike. In terms of being a Hyuuga, the girl was far from an expert at her martial art. She was a 17 year old who still held the rank of being a Genin after all. That being said, she was still no slouch. It was her taijutsu form that allowed her to graduate from the academy. There might be a bit of rust on those moves, but she showed that she could practice what she preached.

The chakra flowed to her hands to create a very faint haze of chakra visible even without the use of the Byakugan. If the boy’s doujutsu did peered at her, however, he would notice she was releasing chakra only from three tenketsu per hand: the tip of her index and middle finger and from the center of her palm. This gave her incredible precision and control expected of someone of a superior ranking. The moment she touched the tree with the lightest of taps, the exterior of the bark made a slight cracking sound but showed no real signs of damage. This was mostly because the girl just was not finished. She added movement into her offense as she stepped to the left and the right, shifting her forearms and palms as if she was blocking opposing attacks before using these defensive angles to counter attack. It may not be as useful as training with a practice dummy, but it served its purpose as each hit connected and the crackling sound of wood echoed through the forest.

Himiko continued her little “dance” around the tree and used every ounce of it that she could. Leaves that were broken free were dodged like they were fists. Roots sticking up through the ground were kicks that needed to be blocked with her feet. She even took this opportunity to try and practice a sequence her father had been drilling into her head. He claimed if she ever wished to become a proud Hyuuga, she would at least need to master it before she even thought of attempting to become a Chuunin. This challenge was her rite of passage in her father’s eyes and her biggest hurdle she would face. It started with two individual sets of palms strikes, doubling to four, and then eight. That was the easiest part. She It was the following rapid strike of the sixteen that she struggled with. Her body just couldn’t move fast enough to properly hit everything in a precise order.

Rather than attempting it and resulting in a failure in front of her brethren, she shifted her technique into something else. The white flow of chakra seemed to thicken into a nice haze. With a spin on her sole, she connected both palms into the center of the trunk before jumping away. This blow, out of all the others, seemed to have the most noticeable impact. It shook the sturdy tree but it held firm as if no damage had been inflicted. “That’s the only display of strength you need,” commented the girl as she turned around and smiled at the younger boy. At just that moment, a large three foot ring around the entire circumference of the tree exploded a thin shower as its bark rained down onto the forest floor.

“Jyuuken is all about damaging the interior. We do not need to force our way through the exterior like every other shinobi needs to do. Look at my tree in comparison to your own. While yes, your tree definitely won’t be getting up anytime soon, mine was far more deceptive. It has most of its damage on the inside as various splinters and fibers work their way towards damaging the core. Both trees eventually will die. But the Hyuuga way didn’t result in using up as much energy as the other method. Why don’t you give it a shot?”

Smiling softly at the boy, she would wipe her brow of the small layer of sweat that had gathered there. It was only here that she began to notice something that admittedly wasn’t hard to miss. As Taiyo’s headband slipped off his face, she clearly was able to notice that something was off with one of his Byakugan. It was…red?

Activating her own, she looked at the orb from a chakra flow perspective. Was it because of those seals all over his face? Was that why he was trying to hide it before? Approaching fairly nonchalant to not arouse suspicion, she would quickly charge chakra into her palms to mostly act as a buffer so that she could knock the boy’s limbs out of the way so she could grab him by the cheeks and look directly at that eye without him immediately stopping her. “What did you do to yourself?” she asked, her tone in a strange combination of concern, grotesque, and curiosity. “Does your family know?”
Techniques UsedShow
~[Jyuuken :: Palm Dance of Divination]
D-rank Nintaijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: 6 Control
The fundamental basis of Jyuuken, the user will focus chakra into their hands. For three posts the user is able to inject the chakra within the opponent’s body upon successful contact, dealing damage to the internal structures of the body rather than the external. This has a painful effect on the muscles and blood vessels within the body, causing bruising at the touch.

†[Jyuuken :: Walking the Eight Trigrams]
D-rank Nintaijutsu Discipline
If Jyuuken is often referred to as a dance, this is its version of the waltz. A purely defensive application, Circle Walking is the art of getting behind the opponent and maintaining said position by matching their movements, thereby limiting the opponent’s ability to attack. By placing her lead hand at her opponent’s spine, Himiko will rotate and walk as need be to avoid having them face her. Those with higher (Taijutsu+Speed/2) will be able to circumvent this technique.

~[Jyuuken :: White Haze Dance]
D-rank Nintaijutsu Maneuver
After channelling chakra into their palm, the user will strike harder than usually performed in Jyuuken. While normally the softest touch is enough to inject the chakra to damage the internal structures of the body, this technique is designed to accompany the user's attack with a blast of chakra, throwing those with a strength less than the user's [(strength+control)/2] back 5 meters through the air.

~[Jyuuken :: Palm Guard of Divination]
D-rank Nintaijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: 6 Control
After channelling chakra into their palm, the user will guard a strike to them. If this strike is empowered by Ninjutsu of D-rank or lower, it will guard against the effects by the user bursting their own chakra into it. Otherwise the chakra will enter the opponent’s striking appendage and damage their chakra system, causing them to lose 1 control until the end of the thread or they seek medical attention.

Taiyo listened to the girl's words and then activated his Byakugan to watch her. As he watched her movements he attempted to mimic them on a separate tree, using his kekkei Genkai to watch her even though he was facing a different direction. Taiyo had decided that he would practice striking without chakra first and began to tap the tree repeatedly, trying to be more fluid in his attacks. He began to circle the tree as the girl had, and did his best to lose his rigidity. Taiyo struck high, he struck low, he even tapped the same spot twice. As he circled the tree he began releasing chakra in the same manner that the girl had been.

At first, Taiyo believed that everything was going quite well, but he had been paying more attention to the girl's demonstration than his own attacks. When Taiyo finally paid attention to what he was doing he sighed. Every time he injected his chakra into the tree via his tenketsu it exploded inside of the tree. And it was not a small explosion either. Taiyo estimated that each explosion was equal in strength to a single exploding tag. This frustrated Taiyo because he was unable to produce the same result as the woman. Instead, all of his attacks were creating internal explosions. Was he using too much chakra whenever he released it from his tenketsu and injected it into the tree? Taiyo knew that he was barely even touching the tree, and yet he was doing so much damage to it internally. In order to test his theory on whether or not he was using too much chakra or not enough chakra, Taiyo began to change the amount of chakra that he released with each hit. As he added even more chakra into his attacks the explosive power increased, however, he also began to suffer injuries because of the explosions happening directly under his fingertips. When Taiyo lowered the amount of chakra in his strikes the explosions became smaller, with the same amount of power as a single exploding tag. Taiyo also noticed that he was able to control the explosion much easier with the smaller amount of chakra in each hit.

While he was happy with the damage he was doing, Taiyo was severely disappointed in himself for not being able to produce the same effect as his fellow Hyuuga. However, he had stopped his training as she began speaking to him again, just as he was about to continue his training she attacked him. Taiyo was so stunned at first that he was unable to react. The girl had grabbed his face with both of her hands and was staring at his altered Byakugan. When she spoke again Taiyo regained himself. He immediately grabbed her by the waist and threw her away from himself in a way that would not hurt her, but also demonstrated his physical strength. “Yes they know, and so do all of the elders. My family is proud that I found a unique way to utilize our gift. The elders? Not so much. However, after they analyzed it, and saw that if my seal is removed everything returns to normal they agreed that I did not commit any crimes against the clan. Now I strongly suggest that you keep your hands to yourself unless you want to be lit on fire.”

Taiyo will focus his chakra into his fingertips before attempting to strike the target's tenketsu. As long as the strike is successful Taiyo will release the chakra in his fingertips the moment contact is made.

Himiko was admittedly surprised by the sudden push back. All she did was want to look at the change he had done to himself. She really couldn’t believe that Taiyo would do such a thing to his Byakugan. And to do what? Use it to spark fires? Shouldn’t he be able to do that without needing to corrupt the beautiful ivory that the clan held close and dear to their hearts? How could the Elders approve of such a thing? She was not there to question their decision. It was not her right. But it definitely did seem to contradict a lot of the policies they did hold.

The little knock back was recovered by a few steps to regain her balance. The kid was stronger than she was. But it did make her wonder just how well he could use it in actual combat. His Gentle Fist was sloppy at best. Exploding the tree was violent and unnecessary. Plus, it required a lot of the precision that his techniques seemed to lack. Could he even land a blow to make it inflict the harm he needed should he be stuck in a close one on one situation? She was certainly intrigued and ready to find out.

The moment Himiko took her last step of reconstitution, she shifted her weight forward and pushed off with her toes. “Burn me, huh?” she said as she spun to the right, lowering her center of gravity towards the earth as she performed a quick palm strike to the boy’s left thigh. “That would just be unsportsmanlike.” Her assault didn’t stop there. It continued with a series of jabs towards his core and even his defending arms. The girl knew of her lack of strength. She did her best to make up for it by aiming her attacks towards the fleshy and more vulnerable areas that definitely hurt to get attack. These were areas such as where the musculature thinned as they shifted into tendon and the general openings where nerves and blood vessels passed through. Her particular preference this time was the grove of the inner elbow and the sensitive region of the armpit.

Had Taiyo been using his Byakugan, he would see that her attacks did not mean for any sinister harm. This was a spar, a practice of their basic application their little encounter had allowed them to cover. In many ways, one could even consider this the test to see just how much he had learned and whether or not he had listened to her advice. She was the older of the two anyway. If she didn’t pass on her limited knowledge, what was the point of having it?

With her last attack being performed, Himiko would spring backwards a bit and maintain her Jyuuken stance. Normally, had this been actual combat, she would continue attacking and applying pressure. But she wanted to see what he was capable of. This was a trial of his defensive application. Now it was the time for him to go on the offensive. If he had the balls to even think about touching this girl. Even one as unlady like as she was. The lass was very much a tomboy. So much that she didn’t even have a feminine figure. Can’t have an hour glass if it was just straight down.

As soon as Taiyo saw the girl repositioning her center of gravity he cursed to himself while making a single hand seal. With a quick Kai, the Speed Boost seal on Taiyo’s left calf began to glow with a bright blue light. He could feel his strength ebb as he felt chakra surge through his body. As the girl began her onslaught Taiyo did his best to dodge, however, even with his speed boost, the girl was still slightly faster than him. All he could think of doing was to release his chakra in an attempt to block her attacks. Taiyo had watched his siblings use one of the clan’s most common defensive techniques and tried his best to emulate it. Although her first attack had landed, and his thigh screamed in pain, Taiyo continued to manifest small chakra barriers wherever he saw she was going to attack.

While he was able to manifest his small barrier in a few of her hits, he was not fast enough to create it in front of all of them, nor was he fast enough to dodge her attacks either. The attacks that he was able to create the barrier in front of were blocked, as the barrier was stronger than her attacks, but with each hit that she landed, it became harder and harder for him to create the barrier. Because of this Taiyo began to bend and contort his body in an effort to create his new barrier technique in front of her attacks, however, this only caused him more pain. After she struck him in the armpit Taiyo actually released a high pitched squeal of pain, which made his face turn crimson red from shame.

While he continued to try and dodge, and defend against her attacks through the usage of the barrier technique that he was learning on the fly, Taiyo focused his left eye on her abdomen and attempted to create flames on her clothing. However, because of the way she bent and twisted, Taiyo was unable to build up enough chakra on her abdomen to create the flames. Even though Taiyo was covered in small bruises, he continued to create the barrier as best as he could, and every time he did he was able to create it faster, and with less thought. In the beginning, it had been nearly completely see-through, and barely able to block her attacks, but as the fight went on it became thicker and more substantial.

The damage Himiko had inflicted to her cousin might be painful, but it was nothing permanent. She knew easily how to fix whatever harm those gentle attacks had inflicted to him. But what she didn’t expect out of all of this was how Taiyo wasn’t really trying to do much to try and counterattack. Yes, she had felt the heat and seen the projection thereof cast through his Byakugan, but it was quite clear that he needed to focus just to actually utilize it. The constant onslaught of her attacks was interrupting any concentration he needed to return with his own offense. In his stead, he did his best to maintain a defense. Most of her attacks were able to connect, but he was adapting through use of chakra control.

When she first struck the barrier, the girl really wasn’t quite sure what she had had hit at first. It was incredibly faint, even through the detection of her Byakugan, but with each successful use, his proficiency in forming that defense grew stronger and stronger. He actually was just using pure bursts of chakra to stop her hits from landing by channeling it through his tenketsu. She had to cut it for him, that wasn’t an easy task to do by any means. Hell, it probably was exhausting to boot. But if he wanted to drain himself of his stamina reserves, she would entertain him. Better yet she would do one better: she would counter it herself.

Disrupting the flow of control of another was not something foreign to her. It was a basic skill of those trained in Jyuuken. Her preferred method was through defensive application of blocking attacks. This time, she would need to modify her technique. Though she theorized brute force could probably bust through that barrier, she had other plans. The moment her palm landed upon that shield, she would send a quick burst of her chakra through it in an attempt to overwhelm its shape. It was a battle of who held the superior control at this point. Judging by their bout, the girl had to admit they were probably of equal skill in that regard. Guess it was whoever had the best technique at this point.

Intentionally slowing her speed down just a bit to give Taiyo enough time to form his defenses and to properly test her utilization of her technique, Himiko would continue her attacks. Each time, another barrier would form and her hand would collide and surge her own chakra into it. The few couple were complete and total duds that did nothing more than hurt her hands. But each attempt only grew stronger. Soon they were visibly “cracking” to her maneuver. With just a bit more tuning of her control, she did one more attack towards the boy’s torso. When contact with the barrier was made, it seemed to disintegrate at her touch only to allow contact to be made. Of course, it was nothing but a tap by that point that really couldn’t do any harm. She still got her point across. She was able to beat his defense!

Post by Gara » Sun Dec 09, 2018 3:32 am

As his cousin renewed her onslaught of attacks Taiyo had continued to create his new barrier technique to defend, that was until she had broken through it and gave him a tap on his stomach. This made Taiyo purse his lips, and squint his eyes in irritation. Because of her “sarcastic” tap, Taiyo had decided to go on the offensive. He figured that if he could defend by releasing bursts of chakra where he saw an opponent attacking, why couldn’t he use the same principle to attack? As he rushed the girl Taiyo channeled chakra into his hands, and as she attempted to strike him again he slapped the top of her hand with his palm while releasing the built up chakra into her hand. This caused Taiyo’s face to be covered in a look of surprise because he had not actually expected his attack to not only connect but for his idea to work. However, when he thought about it again, Taiyo realized that his cousin had decided to go at a slower pace so that they would both benefit more from the sparring match.

The two Hyuuga continued to trade blows, and every time that Taiyo was able to, he would slap away her hands, and release his chakra into them. While he was able to block more of her attacks now that she was moving at a slower speed for him to keep up, Taiyo was still having issues due to all of his sealed tenketsu. All of the tenketsu that his cousin had sealed was affecting the speed boost given to him by his augment fuuinjutsu. “You know, if you land to many more hits I am going to have to admit defeat. My augment fuuinjutsu is the only reason I am even close to keeping up with you right now, and you’ve nearly rendered it completely useless. However, I am honestly glad you have done so because it has shown me just how much I really needed to learn our clan’s fighting style.” As he was speaking to her, Taiyo’s cousin, whose name he still had not asked for, had attempted to strike at his inner thigh, but he was able to, once again, block her strike by slapping her palm and releasing a quick burst of chakra into her hand. This back and forth continued for a good while as the two Hyuuga Genin sparred with each other, and helped each other grow.

The girl’s eyes widened a little when Taiyo finally went on the offense. He performed a strike with his palm and deflected her blow. That was fine in all but it also cut off the chakra to her technique. The attack was a familiar one - one that she had used quite frequently. While she was glad her demonstration of it might have allowed him to learn it, the result forced her to recoil back and shift into a defensive position. Since he could now cut chakra off with his hands, Himiko focused on using her forearms to block his offenses. Her own met with the boy’s to stop him from touching her directly. Still, it was a dangerous game. Eventually, he would break through it. There was no point in preventing him from meeting her palms if he’d stop her use of chakra from the forearm down. She had always been more of an aggressor type when it came to combat. In a way, it was very eye opening at just how threatening it was to be on the receiving end of good application of the Gentle Fist.

But that was why she knew she needed to try and slow him down more. Another attack was made to try and cease the function of his leg muscles but it was one that was seen right through. The strike to her hand knocked her palm away. A look of her Byakugan proved what she had feared most: her chakra was cut off there. She even tried a couple of times to flow her energy out of the spot to no avail. That was perhaps her greatest strength at this point. Though she knew Taiyo was physically stronger, he couldn’t exactly cut off more chakra to that hand. Might as well use that fact against him. As he attacked once more, she intercepted the attack by grabbing his wrist. This gave her enough time for her other hand to hit at that blocked tenketsu and open the flow of her chakra once more.

With that lovely sensation returned, Himiko focused her chakra back through that palm once again. While holding onto that wrist, she expelled a burst just to push her cousin’s limb away. It was weak but proof that such a task was possible. That little trial run gave her enough space to jump back and focus on more channeling. Once she gathered enough, she performed yet another palm strike. This time the burst was much larger. It expelled from her palm with a bit of force that possibly would catch the younger of the two off guard. After all, he had hit him from a distance. Still, the attack was weak. Adjusting the flow and gathering what she hopped with be a proper amount, Himiko performed the attack one last time with her right hand. The dominant laterality proved itself with proper strength. Her aim on the other hand really needed to improve.

As one more invisible shell darted forward, it grazed right past the boy and struck against a tree behind him. This snapped cleanly through the trunk as bark shattered into thousands of pieces. While Himiko really wasn’t for the unnecessarily damaging of trees, she had to admit that was pretty damn cool. Still, the structural damage had been done. With a loud crack, the tree began toppling forward. She missed Taiyo…but that tree? It wouldn’t unless he moved quite quickly.

When his cousin began blocking all of his attacks with her forearms Taiyo began to get frustrated. However, when she hit him with the blast of chakra it had surprised him so much that he was unable to brace against the impact, and was forced backward. Taiyo had fallen backward so suddenly that he wound up falling to the ground on his ass, but instead of getting up right away he used the time to catch his breath, and shake out his arms. When his cousin then sent that same attack at him again it blew past him and hit the tree behind him. Her blast of chakra caused the tree to fall, and it was just his luck that it fell directly towards him. This caused Taiyo to roll out of the way and charge his cousin once again. However, as he attacked her she once again deflected his attacks with her forearms, and so Taiyo began to attack the areas around her elbows. His elder sister had once shown him a way, through training on him, to lock up a person’s joint by shutting off the tenketsu around the joint with Jyuuken.

Taiyo attempted to hit the correct tenketsu over and over again, which should have been easy considering he was still using his Byakugan, but with his cousin’s constant movements it took Taiyo longer than he would have liked to finally hit all of the needed tenketsu in her left arm. As soon as his cousin realized that her elbow was stuck in a bent position Taiyo used the moment of her surprise to lock the other elbow up as well, though the moment of surprise did not last long enough for him to do so successfully. It took Taiyo even more strikes before he was able to lock up her right elbow. “HA! How do you like that?! My sister showed that to me a while ago when she wanted to practice her Jyuuken on me.” Taiyo laughed as he retreated backward finally deactivating his Byakugan. While he had not kept his Byakugan active the entire time he had been training, it HAD been active during the entire spar with his cousin, and his vision was beginning to get blurry due to overly straining his eyes. “Hey, cousin I need a minute. I have kept my Byakugan active for too long and my vision is getting blurry. If I keep this up I do not think I will be able to see very well for a while.”

Himiko had to admit she was a little bit proud by how aggressive Taiyo was being. He was doing everything in his limited capability to stay on her and try to disable her. Even with her Void Palm knocking him back (and knocking down a tree), he merely used the momentum of her missed attack to continue his own assault. He took advantage of her forearm-based defensive by suddenly striking four of the tenketsu that surrounded her elbow. Rather than cutting off her chakra supply, she was shocked to see how it simply prevented her from moving it. This forced it to stay at a near ninety degree angle which really wasn’t very helpful. This opened her up for an additional strike on the next arm, cutting off its mobility as well. She was thankful Taiyo wanted to take a break. She kind of was in a predicament here.

“Yeah…sure,” was all she muttered as she backed off and slouched down against a tree. Just like her cousin, her Byakugan was a bit on the tired side itself. She took in notice of which tenketsu were affected by the attack and simply let her eyes to slowly turn off to rest. She knew she could just reopen them with a few of her own strikes but the problem was they were a little out of reach for her to comfortably attack. She would have to use another method it seemed.

While they rested, Himiko continued focusing chakra through her chakra network. She knew that in theory, she should be able to expel chakra from any point in her body – not just her hands and feet. Scratch that. She knew it was completely possible. She had seen Heaven Rotation used from the more skillful members of her clan. Plus, her little sparing partner had done just that with his little personal barriers. All she needed was a bit of practice and she very well could do just that here.

She first started to test on her right arm as she focused on the general area that was affected. Her shirt occasionally poofed upwards as she practiced small bursts of chakra from them. It wasn’t easy to do this from an area she really wasn’t used to sending chakra towards, but it was this or be forever stuck like she was some mechanized monstrosity. No one wanted that! Once she got comfortable with that basic little application, she would do that same with her left. Slowly but surely, she practiced on getting those tenketsu firing again. As she grew more and more comfortable with its usage, it was time for her to go all out.

Taking in a deep breath, Himiko would surge her chakra system to life and quickly expel chakra from both of her elbow joints simultaneously. This action surged through he hold present and gave her the mobility she wanted. It wasn’t seamless and there was some resistance felt, but by golly she did it! The girl could move again! “Suck on that!” she tried to cheer but only found herself falling back against that tree with a bit of fatigue. Doing those C-Ranks in a row had zonked her. Looks like she would need to rest more than just her Byakugan. “Guess we both overdid it a bit, huh?” mused the girl as she let out a sigh. While she knew she could do better, she knew she would have to work herself just as hard if not harder to reach that goal.

Hyuuga Taiyo could not help it when his jaw dropped from watching his cousin overcome his joint locking technique so quickly. She seemed, to Taiyo at least, to be born to use Jyuuken. This thought made Taiyo laugh because, when he thought about it some more, she was, in fact, born to use it because she, like himself, was a Hyuuga. Taiyo, on the other hand, seemed to be cursed because it was not coming to him as easily as it seemed to come to his cousin. As his eyes rested Hyuuga Taiyo began to walk around and collect loose branches and logs and piled them up near a tree. Other than the pile he had prepared near his resting tree, Taiyo had also created a teepee of logs in between himself and his cousin. After lighting the teepee of firewood ablaze Taiyo sat back down on the ground, resting his back against the tree, and picked up a log from the pile that was next to him on the ground. As his finger began to glow with a fiery red light Hyuuga Taiyo began to carve a new fuuinjutsu into the log.

He was attempting to create a new fuuinjutsu that would ignite whatever the fuuinjutsu was on while the fuuin was active, but would cancel out the flames as soon as the seal was deactivated. This would give his archery, and any future weapons he used, a distinct advantage to other his rank. However, the first version of the seal that Hyuuga Taiyo had attempted to create on the log would not even activate which meant that there was a major flaw in the fuuinjutsu that he was not seeing. Because of this major flaw, Taiyo had flipped the log over and began again from the beginning. Creating new fuuinjutsu to fill needs that arose in his training was something that brought Taiyo immense joy which was evident by the massive smile on his face regardless of his repeated failed attempts. “Forgive me for not knowing this already, but may I ask your name? I am Taiyo. I should probably know more clan members than I do, but I only really ever see my siblings and parents. I do not know many of our clansmen. Outside of the elders of course.” Taiyo’s tone was a simple one and was filled with kindness though it also showed that his mind was completely focused on the fuuinjutsu that he was attempting to create. Every time that he ran out of room on a log Taiyo would add the log to the fire, and after he was down to only two logs left he let out a yelp of excitement. He had been successful.

Himiko watched as the boy rose up and began to gather an assortment of logs. While she could simply could use her Katon to light it on fire, she allowed her cousin to do his thing and do his best to spark a fire for them both to enjoy. It was a bit cool here in the Country of Furs. It really made her wish she had wore heavier attire rather than relying on utilizing her chakra to help offset the cooler temperatures. “Its okay if you didn’t know me. I don’t take any offense to it,” she said softly as she pushed herself up to move a little closer to the woodpile. “I’ve spent the last five years helping my father. He, you might recognize. He’s the man with only one leg in the compound? Taking care of him is a full time job.” The girl lightly sighed. While she didn’t mind taking care of her father - she had volunteered to do just that after her graduation - she knew she had missed out on a lot of opportunities. Her skills had grown rusty and had she continued her training, she probably would have been a Chuunin by now…if not higher ranked. She’d get there!

But after that little speech, her cheeks flushed once realizing she never did say her name. “I’m Himiko by the way. And you’re Taeo…right? Toya?” Maybe she should have been better at paying attention. And here she had thought that she knew most of the members of her little clan. Little being a definite understatement.

Smiling after seeing the boy’s excitement after getting the logs to ignite in flame, the girl remembered about all of those tenketsu she had closed in their fight. Activating a single Byakugan, she shifted a tad closer to the kid before asking a simple “May I?” If he said yes, she’d use her hands to reverse all of those negative effects her previous attacks had dealt to him. Each press of her fingers realigned those imbalanced chakras and let it circulate like it should have all along. With the last point restored, she ended it with a playful flick to his nose as her Byakugan returned to its normal deactivated state. “There…all better now. I’m sorry for being so rough on you. I only did damage to you that I know I could fix,” she said with a light wink.

Taiyo laughed as his cousin got his name wrong after having just told it to her. "Taiyo, and I have heard of your father. I do not think I have actually seen him though." Taiyo thought long and hard to try and remember any time that he might have seen her father, but honestly could not think of having seen the man. When Himiko stretched out her arms and asked for his he smiled lightly and allowed her to do her thing. After all, she had already bandaged his hands earlier. However, what surprised Taiyo the most was not that she could activate a single Byakugan, but that she was able to open Tenketsu that she had closed previously. "That is so wicked. You so have to teach me how to do that one day." Taiyo's voice was bright and full of cheer as he smiled at his cousin. He was beginning to like the girl more and more. After she had finished working on opening up his tenketsu for him, Taiyo stood up and stretched his back and waist before throwing some more logs on to the fire. "No worries cousin. No blood no foul. Plus...I did try to set you on fire at one point. So we will call it even yeah?"

After he finished talking Taiyo's mind went blank, and he realized that he had never put his headband back on. After a quick search of the surrounding area, Taiyo was able to find his previously lost headband and tied it back on to his forehead, and covered up his eye. "I really need to invest in an eye patch one day. I am so tired of listening to Taiin and Keiko say how stupid I look with my headband covering my eye..." While he loved the way he was able to augment his Byakugan, most of Taiyo's family and clan did not. However, because he was able to turn the fuuinjutsu off whenever he wanted to no one really bothered him about it, except for twin siblings. They were four years older than him and were always teasing him about one thing or another, though he would probably take them more seriously if they were not constantly picking on his other siblings as well. "So Himiko what brings you Fur? I tagged along with my older brothers and sisters. This is actually my first time out of the village so I am taking every chance I am given to explore." Taiyo laughed at himself when he admitted that he had never been out of the village before his trip to Fur country.

The girl smiled lightly at the soft compliment to her technique. "Really, its nothing major. Just undoing what we do normally," she answered simply. "It was something I picked up caring for my father. After a while of taking care of him, I just noticed how his tenketsu responded to living a fairly sedentary lifestyle. It was amazing how they just naturally closed on their own. I learned to reopen them to make him comfortable. I'm sure I'll find more uses for it in the future, but for now it definitely has its uses when sparring." With some humor in her voice, Himiko leaned back against a tree and peered up at the sky that only seemed to match the hue of her ivory eyes. "I came here mostly to just get away. Just so happened to stumble upon you as I walked down a lonely trail. Didn't imagine I would meet other members of my family out here, but I'm not really complaining. We'll have to spar again sometime when we are both fresh. I'd like to see if you actually improved."

Sending that grin towards Taiyo once more, she slid down that tree and settled upon a root that just hoovered above the layer of snow underneath it. Honestly, she did not want a wet ass if she could avoid it. Especially when she knew she would eventually begin walking home. The Land of Fur was a bit chillier than she was used to. There was a reason her homeland was called the Land of Fire; it was always warm there. Here, not so much. "So besides modifying your eyes and skipping out on Gentle Fist training, what have you been doing with your ninja career? Any thing you're particularly trying to specialize in or anything?" It was mostly an attempt to spark a little small talk between the two. She felt her skills were more apparent: training in physical medicines and slowly mastering the Gentle Fist. Taiyo on the other hand didn't seem as apparent to her. At least not at first a first glance.

Taiyo slowly began to admire his cousin as she described taking care of her father. Not everyone was willing to give up their lives and dreams to take care of the elderly. However, when she asked him what he had been spending his time on he did not respond right away. When he spoke next his tone was soft and contemplative. "Because my family is so large I spent most of my time growing up with my uncles. Well, I mean, my father's old squadmate and his husband. They taught me the basics of fuuinjutsu and archery, and have really been my tutors for as long as I can remember. Other than that I have some basic knowledge of Katon ninjutsu, but its nothing special. I hope to be the best archer our village has ever seen though. I figure that with our kekkei genkai I should be a step above the others yah know?" Taiyo smiled gently at his cousin again as he thought about the future, though it seemed as though he were looking through her rather than at her.

After he finished talking Taiyo seemed to think of something and activated his Byakugan. After searching the area for a few seconds he walked into the bushes and brought out a mechanical looking compound bow and a quiver of arrows that he attached to his belt. After deactivating his Byakugan Taiyo walked back over to where his cousin Himiko was sitting and showed her his prize possession. "My siblings got me this for my birthday not too long ago, and I thought you'd like to see it." Taiyo held the bow out to Himiko with an excited look on his face as he was obviously proud of the bow.
