[PB] Something Unexpected

Post by Zao » Thu Dec 13, 2018 6:49 pm

On this rather normal, sun filled day within the confines of the Suna village the white robed scholar would be found on his off day from his newly reinstated jounin duties within his home. His home was a rather elegant looking two story home with a courtyard in the back and a number of flowers and exotic plants found within the courtyard. But one would not find the young man outside relaxing within the garden of wondrous aromas and instead he had retreated deep into the basement of the home above, the basement being one large workshop style room. A number of book filled shelves lined every wall as a few work desks with scrolls of all sizes, puppet parts, and tools were scattered about even on the floor as it seemed the man was keen at knowledge but not so much when it came to cleaning up after himself.

This normally happens whenever the man got truly into working on or studying something, that was such the case today as the blue eyed man was in the center of the workshop as a ten meter wide stone platform, at one of its sides stood the slender figure with a worn notebook in hand and a pen in the other hand that was jotting down notes and thoughts about the specially constructed platform before him. It was the space-time teleportation platform he'd removed from the depths of the mountain that day when the two men had escaped the trials of bounding through the spirit realms. He'd done so in order to prevent another from having the same thing happen to them but their was also another reasoning by the actions of the shinobi. It was to study the creation of the platform to learn more about how it worked and if it could be used to venture to new spirit realms with some modification, while also attempting to learn more about its creator; the mysterious space-time traveler whom had links to the abandoned country of Juu.

Earlier that day a letter of invitation had been sent out to his young student, Asuma, requesting him to come by so that the pair could speak as Zao had just returned from Fur country. The young man had wondered just how much the young chuunin had been able to grow in the time that he'd been away, plus it was also time for a mandated check up to ensure that the genma host still had control over the spirit bound within him. Genma host's were always closely monitored to ensure they were progressing and to also ensure that they were not becoming slaves to the spirit within them. Zao was not to worried about the latter as from what he could tell the spirit had taken a rather strange liking to her new host but it was still a relationship that needed constant monitoring. Perhaps the young shinobi had also ran into some questions or problems with training his new power that he could aide him with, as well.

When Asuma would arrive he would find the courtyard gate unlocked along with the back door, after entering the back door he would be able to traverse through a spacious kitchen area that was simple and clean in appearance with a note on the island. It read. “You can find me in the basement doing some research, I’ve set up a few trials to test your strength as a shinobi and as a host. If you can get past them then you’ll find me down there.” The note seemed to indicate that the man’s teacher wanted to test how much progress he’d made since they saw one another, in it is pointed towards a door that was off to the left. It was locked with a special fuuin that would prevent someone from picking it and it would take a strength of ten or more to break in. Down the stairs he’d find a Tenku barrier that the host would need to form a strong spirit technique to break through the maroon colored barrier….

Asuma had spent the time apart from Zao training to get a better grasp on the power of the Genma's forms. He was at a point where he could feel the next level to be unlocked very soon. He was so close and it took immense amount of training to get there. He had been so focused on getting his control over the Genma's powers, he hadn't even tried to learn new jutsu. With all the intense training, Asuma was excited to have a few days to relax. He stretched around his older brother and sister's house. When he got downstairs he grabbed a cup and poured himself a water. As he made his way to the door, he found a letter that was addressed to him. Asuma read the letter, only to find out that his presence was requested.... Wait! By Zao! Asuma went from sad to excited within seconds. Asuma had grone accustomed to Zao and enjoyed their training session from a while back.

As fast as he could move, Asuma ran up to his room and got his normal ninja attire on. He grabbed his new lucky blade and tied his headband to his head. Asuma made his way out of the house and sprinted to the address that was on the card. Asuma arrived to a beautiful home. When he walked up, he noticed the gates were unlocked. He followed the path to the backdoor and found himself within the kitchen. He saw from the corner of his eye a note. He turned and faced it. It read: “You can find me in the basement doing some research, I’ve set up a few trials to test your strength as a shinobi and as a host. If you can get past them then you’ll find me down there.”

A large sigh came from Asuma after reading the note. 'Trials?!?!' He thought as he looked noticed the note's final message which pointed to a door that seemed to be locked. Asuma tried jiggling the door a few times, but it was locked incredibly well. He itched his head in confusion. 'No door should be THIS locked' he though as he looked at the door handle oddly. Then Asuma thought... 'He did say I would be tested, so maybe I have to break it down?' Asuma tried hitting the door with his foot at half strength, but it was clear that wouldn't do the trick. Asuma took several steps back before moving into a full sprint and ducking his shoulder down a bit. He then collided with the door and hit it as hard as he possibly could.

The door broke through, but the stairs decended almost immediately. Asuma was not prepared and fell down all of the stairs until he finally landed on his butt on the lowest level. Asuma got up in a slow manor rubbing and sore parts of his body. He was about to walk forward until Janesisu spoke up within him. "Sweetheart, maybe you should activate the first form and look around a bit.... something seems to be off about this room." Asuma nodded and within seconds focused his energy completely. He was fairly better and entering into the first form and this only took less than 10 seconds to enter into Form 1.

Asuma's borrowed white chakra flowed through him and he had used the same technique he learned from training with Zao last time to sense the barrier. Asuma had spent all this time training his form, so he had a few tricks up his sleeve to combat a lack of techniques. Asuma coated his whole body with the white chakra and then focused it on his hand to make a scalpel like shape forming from his hand. He pushed his hand forward and ripped the barrier with his extended hand. He used that chakra to flow through him as he ripped through the barrier and entered the other side. Once he was through he dissipated his form 1 and thanked Janesisu for the assistance. He looked up only to see...

The white haired scholar heard the smash of the door upstairs, though he didn’t turn his back towards the distant stairs behind him the man only smiled and continued to work. His trials were simple ones meant to test both physical strength and the strength of his control as a host. As the Maroon barrier faded the chuunin would find himself within a completely different place and the home for the third and last trial was a special realm summoning placed by the Tenku user. It had been tied to the simple spirit barrier to activate when it was broken and as a result Asuma would find himself in a completely different realm or at least it would appear that way when he slipped through the barrier.
In this new ‘realm’ was a bubbling lake of lava with five small rocky islands only two meters in size, one of which the young shinobi was currently standing upon. From the molten metal and rock a heavy set looking lava spirit about five meters in height rose from the depths of the lava now to stand atop its surface as though it was standing on water like a shinobi might have done. It’s hair was long and grey in color as its face look like an orge’s as one could see it’s body cool turning black in color as veins of lava could still be seen running through the spirit’s body as it tilted its ugly face at the boy now.

The bulky creature only seemed to smile at the small shinobi standing before him and drew back the large right arm and charged straight on towards Asuma now. Striking with a strength equal to his own as it slammed the first down aiming to smash the boy off the small island of safety from the lava below. Matching the child in both strength and speed. Zao had been notified of the barrier activating and could only nod in approval meaning that the young Suna-nin had passed two of the three challenges that had been set up for him to test himself. This third trial would come down to whether or not the both could beat the spirit or outlast the length of the realm summoning technique which had been used.

Meanwhile, the man continued to work around the large teleporter that had been created by the strange and mysterious individual whom had traveled the spirit realms hundred of years before Nori and he had done so. But somehow that man was still alive as he had dragged the pair from the serpent realm into his own personal realm that was like a gigantic library of floating shelves and books. Who was he? Did he really just leave the teleporter behind as a test for the other generation? Was he really from the mysterious country of Juu whom was deserted of all its previous inhabitants? So many questions and yet there were no real answers as of yet for the noble looking man who brought his notebook into his hands once more jotting down a unique fuuin diagram on one side of the stone platform.

'These tests are boring, hopefully I am done by n-----' Asuma thought to himself as he entered the realm he had no idea what was going on. "WHAT THE HE-" He screamed in the sight of a lava pit and the sight of the demon in front of him. What was going on? Was this on purpose? Accident? Was this even part of the test? Asuma look at the demon, but before he could even finish his reactive yelling.... the Demon winded up his arm. It was clear it was about to swing its fist at Asuma. He looked to the right to the other islands and immediately jumped at one of them. What was weird to Asuma was that he barely escaped. The demon clearly had similar to more speed than Asuma, but he couldn't determine that for sure. Asuma landed on the next little island and had a plan already thought up.

Asuma needed to clear his thoughts and figure out what was going on. However, he couldn't stop time and it was clear that the demon would continue to hit the platforms until he would fall to his death. There were also limited platforms as well. All of these well noted by Asuma. He looked at the demon, it was only a matter of seconds before the demon would attack again. Asuma was ready for the next attack and to jump to the next platform. However, he wanted to test a theory in order to add some time and provide himself with a counter to this monster. Asuma weaved his hand signs and then shouted at the top of his lungs at the monster. "I WAS TOLD THAT DEMONS WERE REAL ONLY WHEN PIGS FLY!!!!!" Asuma could tell that the demon had ears and eyes, but he wanted to make sure that the demon was able to use its main senses AND that it was susceptible to genjutsu.

Once the hand signs were weaved and Asuma yelled, it was only a few seconds. However, after he finished all of that the got into a somewhat crouched position and readied himself to jump to the next platform if the demon would attack again.
Jutsu UsedShow
*[Genjutsu • When Pigs Fly]
D-Ranked Illusion Genjutsu
A rather simple genjutsu that is put into place when the user says a statement ending in "When Pigs Fly". Seconds later, anyone who hears the user say that will see several pigs with full hawk wings fly past, just a few feet above the user and the victim’s head, serving as a somewhat confusing distraction.

Asume would move just in time as the large, heavy fist of the lava spirit came crashing down onto the small island of safety smashing it into small chunks that were swallowed up by the surrounding lava removing one island. Now only five small pieces of solid rock remained on the surface of the small lava lake. A twisted smile was upon the demon’s lava rock face as its eyes seemed to glow orange from the lava contained within its elemental body now, turning to face the direction which its prey had fled off to. Seeming in no real hurry as if it was savoring the fun that it was about to have with the human. “Come back here little kid, let's play.” Laughing as he spoke the creature as he turned only to be met with the powerful yell of the chuunin now.

“What are you babbling about?” Shaking its head the creature responded before drawing back its fist once again as he prepared to once more assault either the shinobi or the stone platform upon which he was standing. But just as he was about to take a step forward several pigs with large hawk like wings flew right by him cause for even the spirit who’d seen a number of things, it was created from a body of lava after all, to pause and follow the flock of flying pigs that flew overhead now. Completely losing focus on what he had been doing leaving himself open to an attack for a few seconds. Could Asuma take the initiative to seize the opening to do something about the spirit or the realm he was trapped within?

Something was odd about this place, but Asuma couldn't put a finger on it. What was this odd feeling he had. With little time to think, he noticed the creature get distracted by the genjutsu. This test allowed Asuma to know that it was rather vulnerable to Genjutsu, or at least unfamiliar. This was the time to act! Asuma only needed a couple of seconds to jump towards the monster while focusing his chakra. Within a few seconds he was able to place himself into Form 1. Asuma had a strategy that required him to be in his first genma form. He liked to take advantage of the eye color change and brightness to place people in genjutsu's. The second he transformed in mid air, he also was working on dissipating the pigs fly jutsu while weaving a whole new set of hand signs.

Asuma was flying directly towards the monster's face. He was done with the hand signs just in time. The monster was still looking up and Asuma needed its attention in order to release the genjutsu on him. Right before he would hit the monster's head he yelled "HEY UGLY!!" By the time Asuma would yell that, the monster would only have enough time to turn its head. If the monster did so, Asuma would attempt to slam his feet against its forehead, but angle his body down to the ground. He did this in order to make eye contact with the monster. If eye contact was met then the jutsu would activate.

Asuma would dissipate his form 1 and land on the closest platform. However, if the jutsu activated then a brighter form 1 version of Asuma would have bright white wings and be flying a couple of meters from the monster. As much as the monster would swing or try to hit the fake Asuma, he would be destined to always miss. The fake Asuma would laugh and dodge all of the creatures attacks. This illusion would hopefully cause the monster to get frustrated and keep focus on the fake Asuma.

If this all went according to plan, this would give Asuma a little bit of time to figure out where he was and what was going on.
Jutsu UsedShow
*[Genjutsu • Demonic Illusion • Hell Viewing]
C-Ranked Illusion Genjutsu
This is a genjutsu technique that causes its target to see a horrifying vision. The ninja will perform some hand seals and make eye contact with the target. Once cast, the world will appear normal to the target until they see the illusion. The illusion is at the discretion of the user. However, they can only make a stationary image, or a visual loop, not a controllable visual illusion. Examples would be a decapitated head on a table, or one of their friends running in circles on fire. This illusions may only last up to 4 posts, or until the user ends the jutsu themselves. As a note, this only effects sight.

“Ugly?!” The words from the young man drew the attention which had been previously diverted by the ‘flying pigs’ back onto the young Suna shinobi now, its brows narrowing and its rocky lips twisting into an ugly expression upon its lava rock face that was raven in color. But it's unhappy face turned quickly into one of surprise to find that the chuunin had launched himself towards him now and found a pair of feet coming right down onto its face. The force of the impact was enough to knock the large creature’s block lik head backwards and in turn caused for him to fall backwards off the small piece of land he had been standing upon and straight back into the lava. Unfortunately the boy’s feet were in the path between them preventing the eye contact he had hoped to achieve in order to activate the genjutsu now as the creature was completely submerged into the lava.

It would take a few seconds for the creature to recover from the blow as it sank deeper into the pool of lava, anger was apparent on the beast’s face now as its head snapped back forward into its proper place and it turned its body upright. The time it took the beast to recover would be around five to ten seconds now as it slammed its hands together and pushed them towards the surface activating a lava wave technique. From the area where the creature had fallen a sudden burst of lava would occur in which a ten meter wide, five meter tall wave of lava was created moving at a speed and strength of five now, it just so happened to be aimed in the direction of the young ninja. As the wave would wash forwards the lava construct would leap out of the lava just behind the wave now and appeared to be a standing atop of the wave of lava, as though he was a surfer, eyes constantly searching for the child.

He planned to crush this foolish human, upset that he had made a mockery of him with that last technique which must have been some form of illusion, he’d heard that humans used tricks like this to defeat each other. The white haired man just on the other side of the barrier turned from where he had been working, exhaling slowly as he didn’t feel that he was making any headway with the strange artifact left over from the mysterious Juu countryman. Taking a break from the relic now he turned towards the maroon barrier about five meters away from him, the side closest to him, his own eyes seeming to take on a maroon tint that stood out from their normal bright crystal blue hue now. His gaze was a deep one as he watched the events that were unfolding within the barrier between his student and the lava spirit now, the spirit haven been chosen specifically because he believed that it would be able to push the body to reveal what progress he’d made since the man returned from Fur country.

‘That must be the first form…” A hint of a smile began to form on the thin lips of Zao’s lightly tanned face now, his student was making great progress it would seem, and on his own no less. After all the man as a teacher or mentor could only help guide the student and answer some questions but everything else would be left up to host himself to learn and discover along the way. “I’ll let them continue for a little bit longer before I end the realm technique.”
