Janus 5 Posted September 2, 2007 Share Posted September 2, 2007 (edited) Referee: liubei013 Competitor 1: Pilot: Janus Chiaki Matsuo MS: MBF-M1 M1 Astray with optional Type 71 beam rifle Competitor 2: Pilot: Lucifer Lionheart MS: MVF-M11C Murasame Janus was somewhat nervous with the fact that she's had limited experience and was going against a flight unit in her seventeen year old Astray. That wasn’t all but her opponent was a coordinator, not to mention he Her friends had repeatedly told her to switch to a ZAFT made unit or at least an aerial units but Janus stubbornly rebuked them every time. 'Loss or not I will not give in. She didn't so I'm not going to either!' she repeated this to herself throughout the trip from Orb to the battlegrounds. 'Coming in for landing', the pilot cried out from the front seat. Janus snapped out of her stance. She'd only just realized then that they were already above the desert. As the Heli cut through the heat rising from the golden dunes of the desert, Janus thought back on the rumors she'd heard during primary school. Breathing out one last long breath she confirmed herself, I will not lose. Janus sat in the back seat of the transport alert and ready. She had her pilot suit on and was not feeling all that comfortable in it. She isn't all too used to the tight fitting and was especially fidgety with the fact that this was going to be the surface layer of clothing. Now, as the Heli descended, she left her previous thoughts and focused on the notes she'd been memorizing since confirmation of the opponent's unit. He can't thrust or stay in the air too long since his engines will overheat. His land time's my best opportunity to attack 'cause his stability can't be all too good even if he calibrated his settings as it's still an aerial unit. The desert heat should cover my heat signals. And keep your back to the damn sun Janus! Take advantage of the time his scanners stuff up. The Heli landed and in that jolt of contact, Janus realized that Murasame's turns were wide due to the missing of side thrusts...or something... damn, I'll have to test this tactic out in battle. The heat finally hit her when the pilot opened the cockpit. Due to Janus' past financial difficulties she'd lived in Orb without air conditioning and thus found the desert heat bearable. She gave the pilot a quick salute and rushed off across the sand to her Astray. She kept her helmet on as she didn't want to be so obviously identified. 'Good thing power cables are still in', she thought, glancing at the massive cables that extended from the back of her ms to the almost over-heating charger. As she neared the foot of the Astray, a mechanic began lowering himself from the torso. She continued approaching the person, and got straight onto the uplifting cable as he detached himself from it. "Oi kid! I've adjusted the terrain stats for you already. Don't try messing with them now. You'll just screw'em up!" The mechanic shouted after her. Janus twitched at the second half of his words and decided to merely give him a lazy salute than a word of thanks. 'Hmph, could've done them myself anyway.' She boarded the cockpit and immediately felt much safer or in her words- 'exposed'. She tampered with several buttons and the hatch closed. Switched on the loud speaker and flatly said "get outta the way unless you wanna get killed." With that, she moved several steps away and towards some nearby dunes 'I'll need these. And that', Janus said whilst grinning at the sun,'1200. I have a good amount of time until it sets.'. Half an hour passed. 'He better be coming.' Janus grew impatient as her initial anxiety and excitement levels declined. The radar gave a beep, signaling the entrance of her opponent. Janus flicked on the public communications link, 'a bit late aren't we?' she asked the pilot, with an obvious tone of annoyance. ((Do tell me if I make a mistake afterall, this is my first Coliseum battle.)) Edited September 2, 2007 by Guest Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
