Martin's been MIA so cobbled together a little filler piece on my own. ^^

Yeah, the idea is that Alex and Ivy have their fight every year in the same bank. Over the years the Bank has kept discouraging this, trying to keep them from coming in due to property damage and scaring off customers. Have tried to hire additional security, sent threats, ect. but Alex and Ivy just kept doing it there anyway. Eventually the bank just gave up and made it a promotional thing.

Tried to imply from the flyer that the Bank is doing this totally independent from Ivy and Alex and didn't even seek out their approval on the matter. Hence why the time the fight will take place is so incredibly vague (that and I don't know if the fight will take place in the night or day once it happens). I think other challengers trying to get in on it was just an occasional thing that happened but the bank has figured to just challenge more people to get more of a show. Likewise, there were probably people on the sidelines placing bets and now the Bank's decided to just make that official and pocket a few quick bucks.

This doesn't entirely line up with how this tends to work out for this annual fight, but it does a pretty good job of capturing the gist of it. It's kind of more Ivy than anything, but Alex always shows up for it and it tends to be what everyone is waiting on all day including Ivy herself.

We'll get more into the past of that and how it came to be kind of a recognized, hyped thing when we get to chapter fourteen. There's a script - dunno yet if it'll end up getting rewritten, retooled, used as-is, or dropped entirely - that Adam probably based this off of, so is at least pretty rooted in something.

It was during the first of these annual open-challenges that Alex was the first to beat Ivy, incidentally. We'll likely go more into that when that chapter rolls around here, but does bare mention that while they've fought in other places at other times and split the wins, this is kind of seen as their big fight and the one they really count, and the wins are kind of down-the-middle for this particular date.

If anyone's wondering I was mostly just exhausted, up a long time without much sleep so slept all day. Did see this before it went up at least.
