The golden Gira simply stared at Pracross as he issued his challenge. It was rather impressive how he remained ready to fight even though Gira had him even further outclassed than before. While he charged up his attack, the Super Saiyan simply stood silently and watched. Gira was a lot less kind in this form, so she had no fear when it came to making Pracross look bad. She knew that she could stand in this spot and let the Saiyan smack her with everything he had all day long and all that would be accomplished would be him wearing himself out. Still, Gira would amuse her opponent for awhile. "You're strong, but that is nothing compared to what I am now. You wanted to see a Super Saiyan's power? Well here you go!"
Gira vanished from sight in an instant. All Pracross would hear was a voice from behind him. "You're aiming that the wrong way." After that, the Super Saiyan lashed out with a casual kick in the other Saiyan's direction. She wasn't aiming to interrupt Pracross's attack. That would simply be too easy. No, she would let him charge it up to his maximum if he wished. 'Maybe i'll feel that one.' The hybrid thought to herself. It appeared she wasn't even safe from those malicious thoughts in her own head. After that simple kick, whether it hit or not, Gira would stay in the same place.
She would just stand there, the murderous gleam of a Super Saiyan burning brightly in her sapphire eyes. It was clear that the second Gira decided to actually fight, Pracross would be in for a great deal of pain. For now, though, she would let the Saiyan test out her strength like he wanted.

[An Adventure Without Bounds] Pracross Thread PL - 44,650 Gain Bonuses - x20 Gravity, Heavy Weights Current PL - 11,163 Tempest PL - 50,000 Event Active: Full Moon The Saiyan’s energy was focused. He could feel the ku flowing around him. He was going to get to full power, or to at least the highest point he could get it without Gira going for a full offensive. Pracross took a breath as he stared down Gira, trying not to show his evident.
But that was before he heard the voice behind him. Gira had appeared behind Pracross within an instant, breaking the boy’s official record of speed. A simple kick, effortless in its strike, forced Pracross into a tumble, almost making him lose his concentration entirely on the charge, but luckily he managed to keep it together.
The no-longer-fastest Saiyan looked at Gira, barely recovering from one hit. What a damn Saiyan breaker. It was painful to his pride, that was for sure, but he didn't care. He had a purpose. He wanted to see exactly how strong he could get with kind of power… But would it even matter? [Cosmic Cannon - 133% - 14,846 - Charging…] OOC: Oh no x2 Tags: Gira
Gira kept her cold Super Saiyan gaze on her opponent as he charged his attack. She didn't seem at all concerned. In fact, the Super Saiyan only seemed partially aware of the situation until she finally spoke. "Are you just not going to fight back?" While this was said with a straight face, it would be completely obvious that Gira meant the question as a taunt. She would then move to Pracross in an instant once more, standing directly in front of him with her gaze connected to his own. She would say anything else. The Super Saiyan just stood there menacingly, waiting for Pracross's attack. It seemed like Gira was trying to be intimidating, but in reality, she was attempting to rein in her anger and regain more control of herself.
She felt like she had enough of a handle on her own power to keep from killing Pracross or hurting him too horribly. Still, if she was to learn true mastery of her Super Saiyan form, she had to get a handle on that anger. During her first transformation, all of her reasoning flew out the window. With each subsequent transformation, she was able to maintain control of herself better and reason a little more effectively, but she was still far away from mastering her form. Still, this was the perfect opportunity to take the next few steps towards true mastery. She's just standing there... MENACINGLY.

Pracross stared down Gira with eyes that refused to admit his fear. This was definitely not the Hybrid he met at Pieter's restaurant. The same one that scarfed down 3 burgers as a proper greeting and the one that taught him how to fight seriously. The same one that he'd just talked to on Konats… This was a monster with a friendly face.
Gira just scolded the boy as he was taking his sweet time in the charge. When she appeared in front of Pracross, the boy jumped and let out a “meep” as she just… stared. It was terrifying. “Fine, here I go…” Pracross took a deep breath and threw the orb forward, a moderately sized beam appearing as he lunged into the structure of the teen in front of him.
Assuming it had no result, the boy didn't stop to say hello. The boy doves to the side and reached for his back, taking out his sword. “Combination Iron!” He shouted, the sword starting to break down and convert into some really cool looking gauntlets, possessing a red aura and 3 demonic eyes, though they all seemed lifeless under the Demon’s sleep. “God, I hope this works…” Whispered the Saiyan, taking up a defensive stance.

It seemed Gira's taunt was effective in forcing Pracross's hand. Indeed, when you had a Super Saiyan staring you down, you might feel pressured to just throw everything you had at it as quickly as possible. After all, at any second, this golden monstrosity could just choose to end your existence in an instant. Gira wouldn't do that, though. She still had a great deal of control over her critical faculties. That anger, though... it was the most difficult thing to control. She had been spending the time between Pracross's charging and now trying to get a handle on it and she was more successful as time went on. Now she actually bothered to throw a taunt his way, whereas before, she wouldn't even bother. As Pracross threw out his attack, though, the Super Saiyan simply stood where she was and took it.
Her body was engulfed in the light of Pracross's energy, and when it cleared, she was entirely unharmed. Not even a scratch. In fact, Pracross may have noticed that his opponent didn't even blink as the attack barreled at her and struck her head-on. The Saiyan moved behind Gira quickly, however, his sword morphing into a pair of rather cool-looking gauntlets. Gira turned towards Pracross and raised an eyebrow at him as he went into a defensive stance. "A word of advice, Pracross. when facing a powerful opponent, it is best to keep them on the defensive. You don't want to give them the opportunity to strike you." Before the average brain could even register Gira had moved, she had closed the distance between her and her Saiyan opponent, aiming a punch barely at arm's length at the center of his forehead.
It was incredibly light in comparison to what she could truly do if she put her mind to it. It would hurt if it hit. Very much so, but it was more like a warning to punctuate her advice. Gira seemed to be getting even more of a handle on that super Saiyan rage now. At least enough to give her opponent some friendly advice.
She didn’t jolt, move, or even blink. She just have that same cold, lifeless stare with those beady and powerful eyes. Was Gira even in this body of a person anymore? The boy was terrified as he lept for safety. With Tempest reforming to make gauntlets, the boy took his defensive stance. Along with that, Gira had jumped to meet the boy to where he stood, bringing the Saiyan to an immediate state of shock. The Hybrid grew a harsh tone and told him that going on the defensive against a strong opponent was an awful idea. With that, he was against the wall. The Super Saiyan had punched him and he was unable to tell what happened.
Pracross not only hit the wall, he bounced off of it. The sheathe on his back created a very uncomfortable impact as he slammed into the wall, which, with the amount of force produce, caused him to hit off the wall and smack into the ground in front of him. The Saiyan felt pain lining up his spine. How could this be happening?! Gira was too fast and too strong to keep up with. The Saiyan started to make a slow recovery to standing. When Pracross managed to stand, he lost balance and hit the wall, lucky hitting his shoulder.
Pracross looked at Gira, her looming aura seeming to sting into his body. The words she said kept ringing over and over again in her mind. “No” He spat out, his body shaking as he force himself up. “You’re wrong.” Pracross pointed at Gira and smiled. It was obvious he was running low on power by this point and Gira had only attacked him twice. “On Vegeta…” The Saiyan gasped for breathe. “If we hadn’t played defensively, lots of people would have died. Lots of risks are always possible. If I were to say, you’d want to be offensive around high numbers, not high power, though both can come into play. If you let the numbers get an opportunity, they can jump anyone on your side…” The Boy finally managed to stand.
“That’s how I almost met my mentor’s death, as well as my own.” Pracross rolled his shoulder, which popped way too loud to have been in normal locations. The boy took an offensive stance, forcing his aura up. “So now I’m training off all of the mistakes I almost made there. Even if it takes getting my ass kicked by a Super Saiyan, I will find some way to become stronger… Just you wait.” Pracross stared down Gira now, clenching his fist so hard that the metal around them started to bend, but as his grip let get, they started to repair themselves.
The boy prepared his legs to attack, his power building up in a sudden boost of anger. “But I’ll shut up… Let’s test this even further” The Saiyan jumped forward, aiming a heavy punch for the Hybrid’s throat, followed by a swift turn in attempt to barrage the Super Saiyan with kicks.
Gira stared down at Pracross as he contradicted what she said. She still didn't show any hint of emotion, though. The hybrid simply stood where she was, eyes fixed on her opponent. What he said had something of a point. When it came to high numbers, you wanted to be more aggressive to keep your enemy from using their numbers advantage effectively. Still, she believed her original point to be the correct one. When you had a single powerful opponent, their advantage came from their strength. If you kept them on the defensive, they wouldn't be able to use that advantage quite as well, assuming someone who went up against them had a solid offensive game and kept the opportunities for a counterattack few and far between.
Then Pracross began to speak of his mentor and the attack on Vegeta. The Super Saiyan's gaze began to soften slightly. His spirit was inspiring and it began to cut through the red haze in front of her eyes. The anger began to fade to more manageable levels. "I..." She began, but cut herself off. Gira closed her eyes, focusing on reining in her massive power. Now that her anger was under control, bringing her power under control as well was much easier. Gira's aura began to fade as she brought her anger under control. Though the half-Saiyan's aura was gone, the golden spiky hair remained, showing that she was still in her Super Saiyan form, but now she was much more in control. For the first time since she transformed, a smile crossed her lips.
"You're right. You will get stronger if you keep up that spirit." Once Pracross indicated that their battle was going to resume, Gira took up her stance. "Okay! Show me what you've got!" Her power had evened out and had a much... smoother feeling than it had before, showing that she had obtained a new control over her form and that this battle had gotten her closer than ever before to mastering her transformation. With that, Pracross sprang into action, attacking Gira with a series of well-placed kicks. Gira blocked each of them with both hands, lowering her power to Pracross's level to return the onslaught briefly before taking up a defensive position once more and raising her power to the level it was at before and prepared for the next assault. Gira briefly lowers her PL to 50 000 with Energy Setting to return Pracross's attack before raising her PL once more to its regular level.
Gira's obtaining more control over the Super Saiyan transformation. o: Perhaps she is on her way to mastering it!?

It seemed his words drove her to calm down. Her comforting words to go with it only inspired his attack, encouraging him to try harder. The Saiyan smiled big as Gira, for the first time, seemed to lighten up. Her energy dropped down to his own as he jumped forward, every attack being blocked, but it seemed to have some effect compared to before.
Pracross jumped back, eyes full of confidence as Gira retook her body. This fight would be a loss regardless of how hard he tired but yet… Pracross only felt inspired by that. It reminded him of a saying his old mentor had taught him while under the academy on Vegeta...
“If you’re going to be pessimistic, than there is one guideline you should always follow…”
“Think of the worst outcome...Let that inspire you to try harder to prevent it.” Mumbled the boy as his energy spike to new levels, his eyes gleaming with hope. Pracross shot forward, eyes gleaming bright as he opened his fists out. The goal was to take both arms and slam them against the side of Gira’s head. After that, he’d flip over her and release a new energy he’d been seeking within himself. The inspiration he had lost.
Pracross’ form became a blur of purple flame and lightning as he flung himself into Gira with heavy force and insane speeds. The Saiyan lost control as he let his own anger influence his power, his head tying up in thoughts of Vegeta. The things he could’ve done. The people he could’ve saved… He wouldn’t let it happen it again. Pracross let out a roar as his combo ended, finishing off with one last kick that’d send him back to recover some strength.

Gira waited for Pracross's attack after their clash. She remained in her defensive stance, waiting for the Saiyan to make his move. She wouldn't have to wait for long, however, as her opponent shot forward in her direction. She could see the spirit and determination in the young Saiyan's eyes. Just feeling that hot-blooded, youthful spirit made the hybrid even more excited than before. Pracross's first move was to take his fists and attempt to slam them into both sides of Gira's head. She saw the attack coming, however, and raised both of her arms to block the blows before they could do any damage. Lowering her power to the Saiyan's level once more and lashing out with a powerful kick towards Pracross's stomach.
Whether she succeeded in her counter or not, Gira would be caught off guard by her opponent's next move. Before she could raise her power back to its maximum, Pracross flipped over her head,. Gira only had time to look back at him before he made his move. Unleashing a power she had never seen before, the young Saiyan shot towards her back faster than she could raise her power. He sent a quick, powerful kick towards the center of her back, sending her flying across the chamber. Before she could hit anything, however, Gira's power recovered to its maximum and she stopped herself in midair. "Ow..." The Super Saiyan rubbed the center of her back tenderly. "I suppose I deserved that one."
She gave Pracross a half smile before stretching her arms. "Okay. I'm gonna give you a final test of your abilities. This is a test that is passable so long as you keep your head about you." Gira spread her stance and crossed her arms in front of her body. At that point, her energy seemed to split. Once that feeling came, Gira began to split into two, creating a perfect copy of herself. "Now let's see how you handle a two-on-one fight." Gira wasn't at full-power, as she tried her damndest to lower her power to near Pracross's level, but she still lacked the control to do it precisely. While she wanted each clone to be equal to her young opponent's power, she didn't get it precisely where she wanted.
The Gira clones lunged at Pracross, attacking him from the front and the back with a flurry of punches and kicks. The Giras were aiming towards Pracross's midsection and face, their fists striking at the same areas on his front front and back. In fact, if Pracross wasn't there, their fists would meet exactly. Gira lowers her PL to 50 000 to counter Pracross with a kick before raising it to its normal level to recover from her opponent's kick!

As his hands went in for the slam, they were met with Gira’s arms… Great, a failure. Gira took opportunity of the moment and kicked Pracross across the room, making him fly a few feet back as she had lower her power. The kick did a lot of damage, but he wouldn’t give up. The boy flipped over Gira with success and planted a powerful kick onto her back that sent her flying. Pracross was surprised with his own might there, but he still had a goal, so he didn’t stay distracted for long.
Gira talked about this being her last last test for him before dividing her body into two. Pracross smirked and felt as their power diminished to something close of Gira’s basic power, maybe a little weaker. The Saiyan teen lifted his fists to get ready to counter as the two sprang at him, his eyes tracking them… they were moving… slowly… The first punch thrown was easily dodged, which only lead Praacross to find a rhythm to keep dodging. Left, duck, right, right, left, right…
Pracross smirked as opportunity opened up. As a pair of fists hit each other from the Gira’s, he’d grab for their hands. With success, he’d yank them in opposite directions in hopes that they’ll clash heads. To follow it up, Pracross threw a punch with a red aura at one of the Gira’s, 2 clones of the Gauntlets appeared and started to attack. While that one was distracted, Pracross turned to the other Gira and threw another purple beam at her chest, his body sparking up again.
After the beam passed, he’d jump at the same Gira, flying up as he started a barrage of fists aimed for her head. To finish up the spree, the boy used a powerful kick aiming for the Hybrid’s forehead. By this time, the clones of Tempest have worn off and disappeared, leaving Pracross with a recovery and two iron fists at the ready.

The Giras upped their speed, noticing that Pracross was managing to dodge their blows with this mysterious power of his. Their tussle soon became a blur of fists and bodies as the intensity of the clash grew. Finally, Pracross found his opening, grabbing the two clones by the wrist and jerking their arms in opposite directions, causing their foreheads to smack into each other. The two Giras let out a brief cry of surprise before they recovered. Good thing they recovered quickly, as their opponent soon began a counterattack. He started by throwing a punch cloaked in a crimson aura. The punch appeared to spawn clones of the gauntlets, which significantly compromised the half-Saiyan's counter strategy.
It didn't matter though. If Gira was anything, it was quick thinker. As the images of the gauntlets tore through her form, they went right through her. The image of the girl smiled briefly before vanishing. As Pracross then fired a purple beam into the other Gira's chest, that too tore right through her, the image vanishing soon after. This technique was the afterimage; a fundamental, much like the multiform... and just as useful. Perhaps even more so. One of the Gira's appeared above Pracross, hanging in the air. She fired a barrage of ki blasts in his direction, aiming to push him back in the general direction of the other Gira, who appeared behind Pracross about twenty feet away, her hands in front of her chest, palms aimed at each other.
The hybrid quickly moved her hands around each other in a spherical shape, a small bundle of blue ki the size of a baseball appearing in space that was once between her palms. The Gira clone took the ki sphere in her hand, drawing her arm back as she prepared to throw it. "Go! Dragon Burst!" She threw the ki ball with speed that would make the world's greatest pitcher faint. It was aimed right for Pracross, ready to mess him up if it hit.
