The city Mos Eisley lies vacant, still, and silent. The only motion to be seen is that of a cloth awning here and there flapping in the wind, sabotaging what little shade it would've provided had there been anything been under it. In the clear sky, beyond the city limits, something odd forms; something odd and unprecedented. The city sees regular sandstorms, and has seen a great many other things as well, few of which bear thinking about... But the desert settlement, on a desert planet, has never seen a true storm cloud. The dark mass slides silently over to envelop the city, and lets loose a vertical flood. The buildings and structures, proof against nearly anything a desert planet could possibly throw at it, fall to mush in seconds. The embedded spaceship, the sore thumb of the skyline, sinks into what is now an ocean of quicksand. As the deluge continues, the mud has nowhere to go but sideways. It slides aside, revealing underneath it a strange sort of technological compound. The Hammond Robotics Facility, newly unearthed, stands open and ready for intruders tourists.

Aboard TSAB Dimension Ship Arthra...
Amy: "It looks like the disturbance between the dimensions is finally clear. You should be able to jump!"
Chrono: "Alright. You are authorized to make the jump, Mage Testarossa-Harlaown."
Amy: "Good luck, Fate!"
Fate: "Thank you." -she steps into the portal, and is beamed away-
In the new arena...
A portal of Mid-Childan Instant Runes deposits Fate, who looks around.
"Hm. This is different." -she shakes it off- "Bardiche. Wide-area scan. Find any lifeforms in the area, and then start scanning the dimensional fabric and magical resonances around here. I have to get to the bottom of what's going on."
Yes, sir. Wide-area scan initiated.

...I was supposed to go to sleep, but what the hell, I can afford a small scuffle.
(searching for lifeforms, you say?)
(well, there's this red-headed guy around, looking up the surroundings he's in not too far away from Fate)
(that x-shaped scar isn't suspicious or anything, no, Sir)

-hey, look the engineer's in the main lobby-
Two humans detected, sir.
Fate sighs. Knowing the nature of this place, I'll have to deal with them sooner or later. Still, until then...
"Ready automated defenser. Continue scanning."
Yes, sir. Automated defenser set to go off against any attempted attack.
"Hm... Dispenser goin' up!"
-he begins to build a dispenser-
(moseys over to Fate eventually) Oi oi, what's that about automated defense thingamajigger?
Actually, screw that question. Who are you sounds like the better one.
-sigh- "My name is Fate Testarossa. I am a mage of the Time-Space Administration Bureau."
Not a good place for your lot unless you're here for a time out.
Get it?(grins) Time out?(chuckles to his own joke before putting on a relatively serious face) Seriously though, who are you?

"...I just told you."
-the dispenser is complete-
"Hmm... no, that's still not enough, sentry goin' up!"
Yeah, here's the problem. You're in the TV World right now as we speak and I don't seem to recall you ever showing up here.
So if you could drop the charade before I have to time you out for a bit longer, that would be fantastic.
"...what are you talking about?"
Dammit, this is the second Medium Awareness character I've dealt with lately...
-the sentry has been built, and upgrades on it begin-
Gotta warn you, I gotta go fairly soon, so expect an Anti-Climax.
He ain't one actually.
Oh. :c Well, too bad.
(sighs) Well, guess you don't want to talk. More fun that way.(wait, when did that son-of-a-bitch pull out dual katanas?!) Who cares about details when you can just straight-up murder someone?! Consider this a permanent time-out!

-the engineer runs out of metal-
"Ah, well, can always get more."
-sigh- "Bardiche, set up."
-cue transformation sequence, which Sho will see only as a ball of golden light surrounding (and shielding) her for a few seconds-
-yeah, no softcore loli porn for him.-
How has You Tube not taken that shit down yet?

And so, the waiting game begins.
Bardiche, eh? Seems you're ready for me to axe ya a question.(rushes right at her)
Question is, do I eviscerate or lacerate?!(a flurry of slashes with no pause, guy's fast)
I blame Barbie Doll Anatomy.

A barrier of golden Instant Runes deflects each slash, a flicker of lightning at each point of contact.
A shockwave of golden-yellow energy hopefully knocks the swordsman away.
Orbs of golden-yellow lightning magic start to form around her.
Yeah, I just made that second spell up, but it's plausible she'd have something like that.

(knocked back) Tch. How is that time magic? I call BS.(moves his neck a bit with a crack before lowering his posture down and going for another rush, making it a point to avoid the likely harmful energy spheres)
(the slashes don't seem to go anywhere specific)

The golden orbs fly at him. Some of them go straight for him, some of them go for his feet, hopefully hitting him for Splash Damage as well as creating a smokescreen.
Okay... Normally, I'd arrest this guy, but I have discretion on my mission, and it's far more important. I'll just register him in the TSAB database for assaulting a TSAB agent incase he shows up anywhere that isn't a battle arena where he's likely to get killed anyway, and continue my mission.
When the smokescreen clears, Fate is gone, having Flash Stepped the fuck outta there.
In other words, g2g.

(dashes past to avoid the incoming barrage... only to see Fate gone) Oh, what?! C'mon, this is balls.
...(chuckles at yet another horrible pun) Man, I'm good.(sheathes katanas with a sigh) Until next time, Doctor Who.
See ya later. Gonna remove myself as well.
-the engineer appears to be sleeping-
