    Date: 19th December, 2013

    Today was far from perfect. Sho had been in Sanctuary when he'd heard from one specific lawyer that there was a kid around. A kid named Joshua. There was only one kid that he knew named that, and not only that, but that kid had known about the Game, too. Coincidence? No way. Too much for that, and even if it was, they were doomed this time. Sho raced through the streets, attempting to get a grip on the presence he felt. When he'd arrived, he'd sensed the presence of a Player; he'd seen the Reaper, Tenho, in Sanctuary. This left Joshua as the Player, and if he was Player level, surely erasing him would be child's play.

    "Where's that rare radian hiding?" Sho asked no-one, looking left and right. He hovered off the ground as he moved, dashing from rooftop to rooftop in this way. Wait, there it was! He sensed Joshua... he thought. Of course, his senses may have been dampened with his arrival, so he could be wrong; he would have to wait and find out. "You well-hid hectopascal! I'll find and eradicate you!" He dashed across rooftops more, heading towards that one place where he felt the feeling emanate from. Was that Joshua?

    Was it? Time to find out.

    Perhaps the dampening of the signal had something to do with whatever Link had done to protect his inn. It wasn't directly aimed at Reapers, so Sho had still received some information, but who knew. Regardless, Joshua got the signal right back, except unlike Sho, he knew exactly who the other one was. There were no assumptions, even given that Joshua wasn't at full power, there were enough firsthand accounts of Sho's presence to have had that figured out weeks in advance. So, since Joshua had advance warning of Sho's probable arrival, assuming he figured out exactly where Joshua was, he decided to make it slightly easier on the math genius and slightly easier on the inn staff.

    Joshua left the inn by the front door, letting himself out quietly, and found his way through the use of stairs and some levitation to a neighboring rooftop where he could not only see in all directions for at least some distance, but also sense Sho's arrival through less physical means. Their first encounter would be soon, and even if they fought to the death, there would be more encounters later on, as neither would give up so soon. Joshua had no idea whether Sho even knew about the death mechanics of this place, and didn't particularly care either way. So he stood on a rooftop in his traditional jaunty pose -though he had added a coat for comforts sake due to the weather- and waited, a half-smile on his face despite the unfortunate news.

    As time went by, Sho moving through rooftops, the sense became stronger and stronger. As if that little prissy rat was coming out of hiding. Oh, and lo behold... he actually was. Or rather, that was what Sho thought. He assumed Joshua had been hiding from him, and that Joshua knew full well that they were absolutely at the same power level right now. Of course, this was all just bollocks, essentially. Joshua wasn't a coward. But, Sho didn't think very highly of him. Or anyone, for that matter. You stupid decimals.

    Joshua wrote:"Come and get me, little man."

    Didn't think Sho could hear this? He wasn't THAT far away. And even if he was, what would the point be in him not hearing the challenge? I mean sure, he could sense it, but where'd the fun be in letting it slip by? It wouldn't be here, that was for certain. Sho heard him and felt his presence, teleporting his way. "I'm going to factor you into next week! Prepare to be iterated, and see what true beauty is!" Sho floated above Joshua's head as they were transported to the Zone.

    The Zone... the Zone was a place where Players were sent during battles. It prevented any damage being done to nearby people, though it did allow the use of inanimate objects to attack. It wasn't a place that Sho HAD to take them to, but he did it because he wasn't stupid. For the most part, anyway. He didn't want to run the risk of being detected by the ISOs and having their frey interrupted and his assassination attempt stopped.

    In the Zone, Sho appeared above Joshua once more. With no Taboo Noise to send out as of current due to it being locked, he immediately leapt into the battle. "Where's your beauty?" Appearing on the ground, he hovered backwards a bit before shooting two rounds of spinning energy at Joshua.

    That was certainly different. Sho actually caring enough about normal society that he realized he had to be careful of what passed for a police force here. It wasn't that Joshua had failed to take the possibility that Sho had developed more situational awareness into account, more that he hadn't expected to need to. While he stepped out of the way of the two energy blasts Sho sent spinning his way, he reached into his back pocket and pulled out a very familiar revolver. With the lack of objects to throw around, this would have to do for now. It would also serve to conceal what powers he did have, while cataloging what Sho had available.

    "Is that the best you can do?" While taunting his enemy, he stepped further away from Sho, even though he couldn't really get away given his opponent's ability to teleport. Joshua then raised the revolver in a one armed stance and sighted down the barrel, firing off two shots in Sho's direction. Hopefully he didn't have the presence of mind to teleport out of the way, or that was beyond his current capabilities.

    Yeah, about conscious of damaging Portal Breach... Sho really didn't give a shit about that. He only cared about the ISOs. If they fought in Portal City, the ISOs would stop them. If they fought in the Zone, it was free game. But, it's very counter productive to finally find Joshua and get stopped mid-way, just because he's breaking one petty "law" that he doesn't care about. Sho's expression didn't change much when Joshua dodged his shots with relative ease, seemingly not bothered. He expected Joshua to dodge and hit him quite a bit, he just didn't expect to lose.

    Caught by two shots, Sho teleported behind Joshua. "N Factorial!" He threw a large energy ball above Joshua that exploded into multiple different little energy balls, surrounding him and possibly hitting him. It was similar to the battle they had had with Sho back in Week 2, of course, but not exactly the same. Sho couldn't do what he could back then, and the same went for Joshua. The mathematician dashed through the air to Joshua's right, then in front of him again. There was one thing that was notable, here... Neku was gone. Out of the equation. The one running around on the "bottom screen", if you will... was you.

    The ball was in your court now, Joshua.

    I see what you did there. 'ball in your court.' Right. If that was true, Joshua was about to smash a light puck down your throat if his aim was true on the next couple of shots. While he dodged most of the little balls of energy that exploded all around him, a few were much closer hits than others, requiring actual concentration to deflect instead of simply moving aside. Up until that point, he hadn't been sure he could actually deflect them, but that seemed to be working fine.

    "Is that the best you can do?" He asked tauntingly in his usual sardonic tone, openly making fun of Sho as he posed to shoot. Arm still up in that horribly impractical aiming stance, Joshua fired off another two shots straight down Sho's gullet, and while he was occupied with getting out of the way of them, telekinetically lifted a garbage can from the street below to hurl at Sho from behind, turning to keep him in sight as he popped in and out of existence.

    The light puck was gone, though! Weren't expecting THAT, were you? Hahahahahaaa. Sho predicted the gunshots, teleporting before they could hit him. "So zetta slow!" Came his taunt as the bullets flew away. The taunt would likely bite him in the ass. The trash can hit him, but it was kinda... pathetic. It bounced off, pretty much, and Sho was stuck in his normal idle position as the can fell to the floor. "Was that it, decimal?" He teleported around a bit, dashing every so often. It was great, being able to teleport. Kept things unpredictable in battles.

    "Die, radian." Sho thrust his palm forward once more, sending out two more large rotating waves of energy balls that were small but effective as a two-wave thing. Hopefully, they'd do more than that garbage bin had. You never knew, though. Sho dashed backwards after he did this, before teleporting to the other side of Joshua and dashing forwards. Gotta shake it up, y'know? Keep Joshua on his toes, and kick his ass when he least expects it. That was the battle tactic.

    If there was a tactic. This WAS Sho, after all.

    That sounded about right for the Sho Joshua remembered. Bluster and blow as if you are the most powerful being in the city, and then flub the only thing you could do to try to prove it. Of course, last time had been actually killing Joshua, this time is was something as simple as actually hitting him in the first place. Joshua's own attack hadn't been particularly useful, that garbage can, while doing something, didn't seem to hurt Sho much at all. Overally unbothered however, simply because of the competence Sho had shown thus far in their combat, Joshua kept turning to keep him in view as he blinked in and out of existence, keeping the condescending smile firmly in place on his face.

    With that same impractical one armed aiming stance, Joshua fired off another shot, using his hand to direct the progress of the garbage can once again as it darted towards Sho's back, continuing to track him with the muzzle of the gun though not yet throwing off another shot. It had taken very little to shift out of the path of those shots Sho had aimed his way, but a lapse in attention span would be all it would take for Joshua to abruptly become a pincushion.

    "Nice shots." If the mocking tone wasn't enough, his sneer became more pronounced if that was possible.

    How annoying! His shots were missing. He was the superior candidate for Composerhood! How could he lose to Joshua?! There was no way! He'd definitely try and try and try again all he could, anyhow. Even if he lost, it only took one victory for him to become the Composer. Eventually, he HAD to succeed, right? There was no force in the world that could stop him! Then again, if he ground levels for a bit, he'd be far better suited to taking Joshua out. But, that might give Joshua time to grind levels. He couldn't have that!

    "Guh!" Sho was knocked back by the shot, the trash can aimed for his back flying over his head as he fell to the ground from where he'd been floating before Joshua hit him. "Guuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!" He spread his arms wide as flashes of light were sent out, Sho morphed into Leo Cantus. His voice became distorted, and he started to teleport around, most prominently behind Joshua, giving off a flurry of high-powered kicks. "SO ZETTA SLOW!"

    Welp, a development!
