The sea and sky were their normal peaceful selves at first at least for a few hours as the sun rises but it suddenly became overbearingly hot as a light fog and haze seamed to pour over the edge of the large waterfall, almost like it was creeping over to invade the grand line.

"What a hot day..." Came the clear as day voice of Locke who was fussing her hair into a ponytail... She wasn't going to need her hair in the way today!

She steps out from behind a boulder, while on a small islet that the ship was docked at, while being unable to be seen from the main island. Unusual for her, she's only wearing a bikini(she wears them under her clothes anyhow), but thankfully she's the only person on the islet at the moment, so it should be fine!

"Alright, I need to better practice my fighting skills..." Locke thinks out loud as she readies herself in her fighting stance, targeting an old, roughly human shaped, tree... She starts to move around, almost like she was dancing before running forwards, striking it with her Blade Kiss technique and hitting the tree squarely in each spot she aimed at... Of course a tree's not going to fight back, but this should be bit more practice before she even needs the abilities in combat...

She then decides to go jogging, after picking up a lunch from the ship, and basic supplies, she jogs for a good hour or so before stopping for lunch...

After a few more hours of training, and the heat continuing, Locke's already exhausted as she sits under another tree and cant help but dose off, almost forgetting were she was...

While she was asleep, the weather quickly changed, cooling off to a springtime temperature as the haze also faded...

318 words (OOC: Locke hasn't used her Haki yet, making it easy to sneak up on her.)

WORDS: ??? | TAG: @Locke | NOTES: Outfit



The weather at the Grand Line was as wild as she remembered it in her childhood. The calm belt wasn't as bad, but then it was crazy enough that she found it wierd when she first reached the four blues. Today was one of the hottest days since they reached Ennies Lobby and they weren't even staying at the main Island, but at an islet off shore. It made it easier to hide from the Marines and she had less to explore, but they were close enough to experience the perpetual daylight that characterized that island. They changed island regularly so as to not be sitting ducks, and also to give them a little more to see. Kenbunshoku Haki was obviously still a must, just in case trouble might try to find her...

Wearing her recolored white Ranger's dress, Linnea easily went unnoticed as she walked around the sandy shores, yet every now and then she saw Locke running around with her hair tied in a ponytail and wearing nothing but a simple bikini. To an Amazon, this simply looked like the best way to train since the girl's usual clothes seemed too restrictive, so it was easy enough to guess what she was up to. She still smiled softly, happy her crewmate was motivated to grow stronger, but then she was able to catch the girl as she worked on her fan fighting form, and the for the first time, blushed as she admired her elegant yet nonetheless imposing fighting style. Thanks to her Amazon culture, a strong fighting style was just as important to a girl's beauty as her looks, "Wow... The way she moves... She's so beautiful...", Linnea thought out loud, muttering to herself.

Once she went back to jogging, Linnea also went back to her exploration, wondering if she shouldn't try fighting Locke the next time they sparred; She was defenitely interested enough to experience her fighting style up close. The archer put a stop to her exploration once she felt her stomach growl, and got ready to head back to the ship, grabbing a quick lunch and heading back out... As she looked around for a different path however, she found Locke peacefully sleeping under a tree. Once she woke up she might be willing to have that little fight or perhaps some more Haki training, so Linnea figured she might as well wait for her. Sitting against the tree, she patiently waited for the girl wake up, but in the whole post meal laziness, her eyelids fluttered close more than once, and before she realized it, she had fallen asleep in the process...

As Locke worked on her war fan skills, she couldn't help but feel like she was being watched... But she knew that no-one was around the islet, since the crew had gone out exploring, working on their stealth, or training somewhere else.

But the jogging that Locke had been doing after her weapons training, which had been exhausting, was even worse, as the air was completely still, the humidity was worse than a tropical jungles, and the heat was almost unbearable... It also didn't help that the ground was slightly shaky, or when there was quicksand pits that Locke sunk up to her hip in, in a couple of places...

While Locke dosed, she had the strangest feeling that she was beside someone... someone who was napping under the same tree she was at.

But as she dreamed, it wasn't a peaceful sleep, it was nightmare. As Locke found herself on a wanted poster, as the most wanted blacksmith in the world. Marines were swarming the ship, the sounds of fighting and the smell of death assaulted her senses as she found herself holding a dying friend, Naga D. Linnea, as she bled out... The rest of the crew were in a circle around them as the doctor was trying her best to bandage Linnea up and save her life... An explosion rocked the ship right before Locke jerked awake! Having a cold sweat, she slowly manages to remember what she was doing.

She then hears a small *thump* sound beside her. As she turns to look, she finds Linnea, on her side with a peaceful look on her face, but do to the nightmare and Linnea falling onto Locke's lunch-bag, splattering something red all over the grass, she screams "Linnea!!!!" while slightly hallucinating, before checking Linnea to see if she was alright.

Locke even forgot about her embarrassing lack of clothing, as she started to cry and pulled Linnea's head to her chest, rocking back and forth and not noticing the red stain on the lunch-bag.

It was a lovely dream... She was sailing with her closest friends all over the ocean, just as she set out to do once she left Amazon Lily, and they actually managed to reach the legendary island in the sky, Skypiea. It was one of those places Linnea always wanted to learn if they existed or not, since she really had no idea. All the books she read weren't clear on that. Plus, swimming and resting in the clouds sounded so lovely... All this time she was completely oblivious to how Locke had pulled her head onto her chest, but she was perfectly aware of resting her head in a delighfully soft place, feeling like her head had somehow happened upon the best pair of pillows...

Linnea let out a low, content sigh that sounded amost like a moan as she wrapped her arms around her pillow and nuzzled it softly. She liked wrapping her arms around something when she slept, that much had never changed... But then his wasn't really sleep time and she eventually opened her eyes... And once her mind finally processed where she was lying her head on

"Aaah, Locke...!! Im so sorry!!", flustered beyond reason, Linnea blushed red like a tomato and looked away from her friend, hiding her face behind her hands and speaking so fast the girl might actually have a hard time understanding, "I fell asleep, I didn't notice i fell asleep on you! Please forgive me!"

She was sure the girl was going to be angry, but all she could hope for was that she wouldn't be too angry. Ever since losing her innocence to Alice, she had actually grown even more fidgety and awkward with physical contact... It just brought all those memories back all at once.

The "bleeding" form of Linnea was the only thing Locke noticed as she cradled her head, crying"Was she here to warn me of something? Was she hurt trying to save me? Was sh... Wait, what smells like tomato sauce?"

Things manage to piece themselves together as a moan from Linnea proved that the captain was in-fact alive, as Locke was relieved, she remembers the lunch she packed was a amount of spaghetti... "Oh, What a relief... You scared me Linnea." Locke whispers to her now-proven alive captain and friend, before the sleeping Linnea decides to give the greenette a hug, which Locke returns.

Unfortunately for Locke, the hug seamed to encourage Linnea to start nuzzling her chest, which was embarrassing in of itself, to which made the amber eyed girl realize the fact that she had no clothes on other than a bikini.

"Kyaaaa~!! What are you doing?" Locke yelps, as she just realized what's happening. The yelp must have awoken the captain as her eyes jerked open, and she must have noticed what was going on too, as she had turned a deep red as she also sat up quickly and started talking so fast that it was almost impossible to understand the blond. The few bits of talking Locke could understand were apologizes, pointed towards the greenette who was hiding behind the tree she woke up under.

"It's okay Linnea..." Said a similarly red Locke as she peaked out from behind the tree "I was woken up by you falling onto my lunch bag... And I did put you in that position... But you should have t-told me that you were going to be back, that way I wouldn't be nearly as embarrassed about this..."

After a few minutes, Locke asks "Did you fall asleep while waiting to teach me more about Haki? Or was it something else you wanted?"
Her face had started to cool down from it's burning red, to a mild pink as she's still embarrassed about this situation....

She woke up to Locke yelping at her sleepy nuzzles, but fortunately she didn't seem to be angry at all, just embarassed. It was enough to allow Linnea some measure of relief since she rather enjoyed the girl's company and didn't want to make her mad like that. Apparently she woke up to the Captain falling onto her lunch bag, and judging by the pool of tomato juice she must have thought her Captain had been hurt:

"I was just exploring this Island really... But then I saw you training your fan style and I just had to watch it. You're really impressive...!", she praised, still blushing but obviously eager to change the subject. She was completely at ease with how little clothing Locke was wearing however, being dressed light was clearly something she was used to...

Fortunately for her, it appeared Locke was also interested in training, meaning they now had the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. Linnea stood up and offered her hand to the still sitting blacksmith, smiling and proposing a training program for the two of them, "That training sounds good to me! I still haven't taught you about the other color of Haki; Busoshoku, the Color of Armament. So what to you say? I can teach you to use that power while you show me your fighting style up close? I'd very much like to look at it some more..."

She would take her stance in the middle of their clearing, calmly waiting for her sparring partner to get ready and come at her...

"Y-you thought it was impressive?" asked a shocked Locke who remembered her "training" "It's nothing special, just something I taught myself, that way I could defend myself from pirates or what not when I was back in Foosha Village... Not that I'd..heh.. use them against you."
Locke was starting to calm down now, but she's not moving from behind the tree... Being in nothing but a bikini in-front of somebody else, that notion was one of the most embarrassing thing she could think of...

"You like my fighting style? I never was praised for it when I was at home... I guess I've always had a feeling that I'd need to fight one day, so I guess it was my fate to be on your crew, huh? Locke thinks, feeling good about the captains praise.

"I'd be afraid that I'd hurt you, or worse... I've not really tried it against anyone, so I dont know if how I would  hold back...
Locke's concern was truthful, she never did use it against anyone, the one time she needed it, she was knocked out before being able to use it in an actual battle situation.

"If your up for it, I guess we could... But please forgive me if I hurt you." Locke steps out from behind the tree slowly, the pink on her cheeks slightly fading as she says "Over this way, there is a good spot train over here."and she was right, there was an old ruin of some sort, that mostly only had its base left. the base of this ruin was relatively circular in shape, and though there were many cracks and plants that found their way through the strangely still smooth, gray, marble like stone... It was like this place was a battling ring or an old lighthouse...

Locke turns to Linnea, saying "Is this a good place?"

"Indeed.", Linnea nodded affirmatively, smiling and explaining her view on her elegant fighting style. Locke looked pretty shocked that Linnea would find it impressive, but in the amazon's mind, her movements were dazzling, and she wasn't the least bit bothered by her words of developing it in order to fight Pirates, "In Amazon Lily, beauty is strength, and strength is beauty... Your fighting style showed ample amounts of both."

The girl still seemed pretty uneasy and had a hard time walking outside of her hiding place, but Linnea had no idea she was hiding because of what little she was wearing - still not seeing that as a real problem - but assumed it to be because of her unconscious actions wearly on, "You can come out now, I promise I won't do anything wierd again...", she said with an embarassed look, cocking her head down and tugging on her hood, blushing bashfully as she raised one hand in front of her chest.

But before long, she had managed to coax her friend outside her hiding place, not looking the least bit bothered by the prospect of being on the recieving end of her friend's attacks, confident she could use her Haki for defense until she got a better idea of what the girl could do.

"Don't worry... Start out with your weaker attacks, rise up the tempo as I get used to them? I'll do the same.", Linnea reassured her with a mostly solid training program. She followed Locke, certain the girl might have found a rather decent place for the two of them to train at. It was a rather interesting ruin, and Lin nodded in agreement when she asked if it was a good place. The archer answered by dropping her bow and arrows aside and taking her fighting stance, smiling and staring right at Locke's eyes with a surprisingly excitable look, "It will do. Come on then, let's see that fighting style of yours~!"

"Strength is beauty? I'm not all that strong, compared to you." Thought Locke as Linnea explained some of the culture of Amazon Lilly...

"You can come out now, I promise I won't do anything weird again..." Said the Captain, "But that's not what I'm worried about..." Locke continues to think..."She goes around with more revealing clothes, it must be a fashion in her home town."

I really dont want to hurt her... But I said I would do this, so there's no backing down now." her inner voice says as they make their battle poses, with Locke seaming to be stepping lightly and her fans folded out..."Start slowly... Gain momentum." She kept repeating that in her mind, trying to aim towards non vital body parts...

"Here we go..." sighs Locke as she dashes forwards in a kind of unusual zigzag pattern, before reaching Linnea's side, to which she uses the blunt end of the fan to act like the blades towards her kneecap... Locke then goes into a spin, trying to strike once more with her fan, and another is in the works...

Linnea took her stance and kept her Kenbunshoku Haki primed on Locke. She didn't know if the girl was using it, but her very fighting style was created accounting for having to deal with that possibility. As such she used short, bursting movements that could be accelerated quickly and would allow her to quickly punish her opponent's while giving them as little possible chance to react and counter attack. All in all she was a defensive fighter who mainly fought by counter attacking.

"By focusing your Haki on your skin, you can harden it into armor, stronger than steel... That is Busoshoku Haki.", Linnea explained, her tone focused and composed as her sparring partner waltzed over to her and started into a spin.

Locke's fan would make contact with her leg, but instead of the blunt sound of metal striking flesh and bone, all they would hear would be an echoing, shattering sound as the attack would break through Linea's Ice leg, seemingly cutting it from her body. Of course this lack of resistance allowed Locke to easily follow up with a spin. The ranger had more than enough balance to keep herself propped on one leg while the severed one reformed, and even admire Locke's dance in the process... Her movement was indeed beautiful but Linnea couldn't help notice it left her wide open: If she mastered Kenbunshoku Haki and used it to aid in evasion, she would be a fearsome opponent indeed. But for now, Linnea had to deal with her attack: Using her own Haki, she foresaw when Locke would strike, and met her attacking wrist with a hardened forearm.

Her counter attack was swift and immediate, executed in a single fluid motion: She grabbed hold of Locke's attacking wrist, moved her torso side by side with her, and finally wrapped her free arm around the front of her neck before unleashing a quick, Haki hardened sweeping kick behind her knee which would likely knock her down. A Haki empowered attack would hurt, but Linnea held back enough not to cause her friend any lasting injury that might keep her from fighting...

"Of course if the armor is hard enough, It will also have offensive power...", she said as she backed away from Locke just enough to leave herself enough time to counter attack when she retaliated. With this, she continued her lesson, hopefully teaching her friend enough that she might realize how to get past Linnea's Logia intangibility, "You can even channel it into weapons! But the greatest strength of this ability is how it lets you strike even nigh invulnerable Devil Fruit users like myself."

Locke thinks "Busoshoku Haki.... I wonder what it feels like." as she made her strike... "OH,NO!!!" thought Locke as she seemingly broke her captains leg... before realizing that Linnea regenerated it as she hoped back. "It must have been her Devil Fruit..."

Locke didn't even know what hit her as she landed face first onto the ground... Ohhh... That hurt.... I forgot to use my Haki!" She stands up, definitely going to have a bruise as she turns back to her captain... activating her Kenbunshoku Haki, and immediately after words the world seamed much more alive...

"Focus.... Come on Locke focus, you need to learn how to use this, that way you can prove your worth..." she told herself as she focused, moved into uncomfortable distance(almost right on top) of the captain, and uses her Blade Kiss technique, forgetting that she's actually striking with injuring intent now...

The first 3 strikes, if they hit, are just normal strikes, but the third and forth start to shimmer with a metallic sheen as her arms, up to her elbows and even her fans... then this new Haki seamed to fizzle out at the 5th strike as it then attempts to hit it's mark....

She couldn't help but letting out a little chuckle at her blacksmith's reaction before her Ice body reformed back, but she wasted no time smiling and reassuring her, "It's alright... I'm a Logia.", she said as she took her stance again and looked at Locke, easily seeing how she mustered her resolve, her aura visibly flaring up inside her mind's eye. She had left the girl with more than enough time to stand up and recover before beginning round two, but this time, Linnea had no intention of using her Busoshoku Haki again. She'd done a rather effective demonstration, Locke shouldn't need to see anything else, especially after already having mastered Kenbunshoku.

So, now it was time to wait. Her smile faded as she steeled her mind for the uncoming sparring session, issuing a challenge to her blacksmith friend and deciding on how to best go about it in a way that would let her admire the girl's fighting style: "How about this? The only way you'll be able to hurt my Ice body is if you use Haki; so try to do just that."

Once Locke charged at her, Linnea held firm, raising her arms in front of the attack as if trying to block it, the kind of reflex she wouldn't be able to shake off so easily. Still, her Ice body offered no resistance to the first three fan strikes, shattering easily. The Archer barely even flinched, and didn't utter a single noise, as if she hadn't even felt the attacks. The fourth fan strike was something different altogether. Sensing the aura focused into the weapon, she clenched her partially regenerated arm and raised it in front of her head, completely shattering her upper half into shiny ice dust... This time, she let out a sharp, pain filled grunt, and as she reformed her Ice Body there was a visible bruise in her arm when the weapon made contact:

"Well done Locke...", Linnea praised the greenette, smiling kindly as she took her stance once again and issued her next challenge, "Remember that feeling you had when you unleashed the fourth attack. That resolve, that absence of doubt. Once you learn to call upon that feeling, you'll be able to control your Armament Haki."


OOC: With D-rank Busoshoku you can imbue a single medium with Haki; this means a single fan, limb, torso, or head. I assumed you imbued only one but be careful with this against a player who can manipulate your vagueness in his favor. The same goes for pointing out where you aimed the attacks!

Linnea was... taunting her? Locke knew it was most likely a ploy, but she couldn't help but wonder if the captain's power was going to her head...
There had been many tales of Devil Fruits corrupting their consumer, as they slowly drifted into madness they lashed out at friends and innocents alike, and the Logia type devil fruits were the largest source of the roomers.. Especially the Devil Fruits that allowed the users to control shadows, or darkness....

"Just dont let that power go to your head Linnea... It might corrupt your ideals and make it to where we have to knock some sense into you..." Locke said as she readies herself for her captains barrage.... but it doesn't come, in-fact Linnea seamed to have taken a defensive position and as her top half shattered and reformed(which still looks creepy by the way) there was an evident look of pain on her statue like face as a bruise forms.

That was Armament Haki? It felt empowering! But it also felt like I could have lost myself in it..." Locke says as she focuses on creating it again, only this time she has some idea of what to do... Her right arm and fan get covered by a light iron colored aura, but it still feels unstable...

"Here goes nothing..." thinks Locke as she looks around for a platform, or something in reach....
She sees one behind Linnea as a part of the ruin's wall was still intact, though not very sturdy. She runs, while still maneuvering like she was dancing, and jumps onto the wall. She then pushes away from it in a millisecond, while somehow keeping her momentum... Locke started to soar almost as she reaches the pinnacle of her jump......

At the proposed suggestion for Locke's training session, the girl looked incredibly concerned, frightened even. It was hard to figure out why, perhaps she didn't believe what her fruit powers allowed her to do? Hell, even the Archer herself had an instinctively hard time believing them, as seen by her ability to avoid most attacks yet still performing defensive actions like blocking and dodging. Nonetheless, Linnea looked pretty confused at the girl's words, cocking her head slightly with a vaguely innocent, puzzled look in her eyes, "Uhm, what do you mean?"

In her mind, acquiring a devil fruit power was no different from getting a new weapon or fancy piece of equipment, only this one prevented her from ever taking it off. And given how her newfound ability became a part of herself, the expression 'Let the weapon become an extension of your body' never rang truer. Locke's words cleared her confusion however, allowing her to understand what she was worried about:

"Don't be afraid of power. Look ahead and stay true to the path you chose, and whatever power you gain becomes nothing more than a tool to assist you.", admonished Linnea, after a sweet, lighthearted chuckle as she finally realized what the girl meant back then. Thus she tried her best to reassure her and explain what she meant, "This is training! The greatest power of Busoshoku Haki is the ability to hurt Logia users, so what better way for you to train it than for me to use mine?"

She then watched as Locke set off into a sprint, running for the nearest wall, jumping off, and then plummeting right down onto her. Meanwhile the archer just stood there mesmerized, but as she got a good look at how high she'd jump and watched her fan become covered with Jet Black Haki, she had a strong uneasy feeling... Even though they were training, if Locke fell on her from that height with a Haki imbued weapon, it would deal serious damage to both Linnea. She wanted to avoid using any more Haki herself, but her survival instinct spoke louder; and she met Locke's attack with an equally hardened palm.

With a loud crashing sound, she'd let the greenette smash into her fan fist, their Bushoshoku Haki attacks evening each other out. Locke would smash through her Ice body and probably leave a decently sized crack on the ground below her, together with a dust cloud. Linnea would slowly reform her body from splinters and icy dust, from her feet all the way up to her head, with a praising smile on her face, "Getting better... If I hadn't blocked that with my own Haki, it wouldn't have been pretty at all."

Blood trailed down from her palm and there was a very large bruise all around her wrist and forearm... The pain stung, but the adrenaline and desire to see more of her friend's fighting style kept her going.
