"You got a funny way of conceptualizing 'a little', honey."
As the cannon fires, Murakumo starts shining with a mysterious glow.
Nei was familiar with Murakumo - she knew it would instantly try to protect itself, though the otherwise puny mecha was quite fragile.
Or at least so she assumed."And after I tried so hard to lift those stupid limiters dad left on him, too, it's getting nearly blown to bits that makes him do it..."
A lone drillbit-like projectile flies off in response to the shot. It's the tip of one of Murakumo's hidden tentacles, which it usually doesn't get to deploy. It seems to be blown off trajectory on its way, but doesn't stop the shot - and upon impact, there's a lot more smoke than there should be.
There's also an energy field that totally doesn't belong there, or at least it shouldn't. Murakumo is on its knees, granted - but it looks somehow no worse for the wear. It's positively SHINING, even.
It's also a lot more purple than you remember. "Finally decided to take the kid gloves off, eh partner?"
It stands up, taking hold of its primary weapon. And it ROARS.
The resulting wind causes Hugo to hold onto his hat as his coat flaps behind him."Sorry Nei. I was trying to resolve this in a way that gave your ride the least scratches and still pointed you to a nice, fat cache. But you had to go and do things your own way again. You've been naughty, and naughty girls get punished.
Murakumo. You have my permission to 'scratch her ride a little'."Acknowledged.
It fires a single disk from the gun to start. "As for you, baby, I don't think I want you to attack my friends in the meantime, so..."
Hugo pulls a lot of disks out of his pocket, smashes them all at once, and disappears.
Yeah, I'm not gonna dignify those ludicrous DCs with a response. I don't even know what the stats of the Disk Launcher are, so I can't roll versus disarm, and I'm starting to honestly think Miniaturization isn't worth the hassle, I might switch it out for Growth instead since apparently having a bigger robo-dick counts way too much for Murakumo to remain inconspicuous.
So instead, I'm having Hugo break a teleport disk and sending a payload of Evard's/Daltim/'s tentacles, Solid Fog, and Create Water STRAIGHT INTO NEI'S FUCKING COCKPIT. She's probably going to dodge out of it in an improbable way, but whatever. Murakumo is shooting out a Solid Fog disk and engaging Coolness, because fuck damage apparently, even though they probably have wind generators on the ship or whatever.
Oh, and deploying funnels.
