Hm…His concern is obvious
What do you get back?
Why are the robots… Human shaped?
It doesn't seem very efficient.
So far the only answer I've gotten is 'it looks cool', which… I mean yeah, but that seems like a strange way to build a military.
….I actually don't know. They've always been designed this way.
From what I know, they used to be even bigger. Some of them being nearly 40 meters tall.
I'm stronger'n most people, damn fast and it takes a lot to put me down for good.Steve gets a flat look.
It might not be a good prospect long term, but I ain't gonna waste time lyin' around.
Plus, I figure with an organization like yours, Texas'll show up sooner or later. This seems like her kinda thing.
I know what you mean. I was pretty surprised when I found out about it.
…It was way before my time though.
Another operator. We used to work together, but she got all straight laced and proper.Pointy-toothed grin for Steve!
You'll like her.
The pink haired cat lady's workin' on a treatment. I ain't a doctor, so I could only give her rough details…but she strikes me as pretty capable.
I told her about Texas too~
I don't know…I read that the pilots were….special to say the least.
Don't know if I'd want them around.
I guess stuff like that isn't gonna just show up without a pilot huh.Cinder shrugs
Ah well, not like I don't have enough mechanic work here as is.
We went through a lot together.
Maybe she'll tell you about it~
Yeah, we have a decent number of mechs so you won't get bored anytime soon.
I believe we have a simulator as well if you want to give it a shot.
Yep, and plenty of attacks to keep me needing to fix 'em.
Should be easy what with my current quarters bein' a tree in the park.
I'll definitely keep an eye out for any old ladies gettin' mugged, though :D
Yeah, that's a fair point. Guess you never get good at anything if you don't try.
Well when I get time between repair jobs I'll give it a shot.
Well gosh, ain't this just the sweetest place on Terra! Hah!AMUSE
You're a real stand up guy, Steve :D
It's an expression~
But I guess 'Leyang' works too.Chuckle!
>>419555Hell yeah, TEAMWORK baby!Iowa's gonna have to remember to blow some kisses at these sailors after the battle.>>419556Uh… shit, evasive action might have been a good idea, huh?
Aagh!Direct hit! Thankfully Iowa's made of some tough stuff, so she's able to tank that hit. Though it does almost throw her off her feet and send her tripping to the waters' surface… she manages to hold her feet though.
Ha… That all you got, darlin'!?Iowa looks over her shoulder cockily as she tosses that taunt… only to notice how many planes are returning. And how many of them seem to be making a beeline towards her. And how many aren't simply returning to their abyssal princess to rearm, but are lining up for attack runs on her, bypassing even the Missouri.Some distance away, NOH's eyes are locked on and following the shipgirl. 'Cause boy, do the abyssals want to see them shipgirls sunk.
… oh, shoot
>>419562I can't!And even if I could I got my own problems to worry about.>>419563Iowa can't help but cringe as she hears the guns go off, anticipating another big hit to add to the blast and burn marks already on her back.But then they… miss!
Huh…?She's gonna have a quick look around.
Smoke shells?>>419565It's okay 'cause I am dumb and have been ignoring you too.Please understand.
>>IowaBlinded as she is by the smoke surrounding her, she isn't really able to get an effective defense against all these abyssal aircraft coming in… and they seem not terribly bothered by the smoke at all! Or at least they had marked well her course and speed before losing sight of her.Either way, there will be a buzzing of aircraft moments before a squadron of dive bombers barrel through the smoke, and moments later, Iowa is covered in explosions as their payloads are dropped!Then her feet get taken out from under her (thankfully not OFF of her) by several torpedoes that were released.Everyone outside the smoke will only see flashes from inside the smoke cloud as these detonations go off, and probably have plenty of distance so they don't have to hear her screaming, but inside the smoke Iowa finds herself in a pretty desperate situation as her gears buoyancy suddenly gives out, and she's left splashing desperately in the water to try and stay afloat. It's a battle she is quickly losing, however.>>419566Hey, you get to see the bombers go into this smoke cloud, and the torpedo planes send their torpedos into it!And then the flashes and booms.Do you REALLY wanna fly into a smoke cloud completely blind though?
>>419570Iowa is hoisted out of the water! She isn't dazed or anything like that, but she's probably too busy coughing up some sea water to really respond to Re in a timely manner, so SMACK it is!
Guh…And now she's fixing gazes with Re! She's too injured really to even lift up her arms and try to fight off this abyssal battleship, and her gear is well and truly useless for the moment without repairs.She's completely helpless.She knows she's completely helpless.She still manages to give Re a glare, showing no fear in the face of apparent imminent death!
What're you waitin' for, then? You wanna gloat? Waitin' to hear me beg? Well, forget it and just finish this already!Feisty!
>>419573Re will GRIN.
Not…yet, shipgirl.Iowa gets a LEER. Re might not be intent on killing her just yet, but she's definitely enjoying this moment.
The princesss…wanted to let you know…they have…hostage. Her Zero. She's really angry…more angry at them…than you. Understand?
>>419574Iowa seems a little taken aback by this… and maybe a little scared, it's hard not to be in this situation. She's sure not just a quivering mess, though!
Wha… what's that got to do with anythin'? You…Click!
… you askin' for… for some kinda help
?She sounds like she can't believe this.
Call it…truce, shipgirl.
Princess…wants her zero back…
…They watch us…too closely. You get it…we might help you…for a little while.
Even…sunken ships…understand honor. We remember being…like you.
>>419576I only got so many pictures of a battle damaged Iowa, and I'm saving one of them.FOR SOMETHING.
… a truce, huh? With you
lot?It's damn obvious she doesn't trust Re as far as she can throw her… and Iowa's a big girl, but throwing Re is not a prospect she would really want to try!And Iowa really isn't in a situation to tell her to fuck off, anyways.
… truce, then. We'll… see what happens. But I'm liable as anythin' to sink as soon as ya put me down.The princess had to make it look real, y'know.Not that she didn't REALLY enjoy putting a hurt on a shipgirl.
We have…to take orders…but…do what we can.Re seems to echo Iowa's feelings! She really does want to sink this shipgirl! She lets out a barely audible giggle as Iowa mentions sinking.
Not…today, shipgirl. Maybe…someday you can join…us…With that, Re (rather abruptly,) drops Iowa and begins to sink herself! Right as her head reaches water level, she imparts some final words!
I'll see you…on that day.And with that she's gone! And Iowa is left alone, slowly sinking…until something unpleasantly metallic presses into her back. That's definitely the snout of Re's tail, keeping her just above the surface!This is probably unsettling as FUCK.
>>419582Song will fly down next to Wonder Woman.
Thank you. You were pretty good yourself.
The name's Song. What about you?
>>419581Thank god please hurry.>>419582Thank GOD.As Wondie grabs Iowa, the dark shape underneath her that is Re is going to suddenly recede into the water!At roughly the same time, off in the distance, NOH finishes recalling what's left of her planes and slowly sinks into the water. She's goooooone!
Thank ya kindly… uh… fancy flying lady. My gear ain't gonna let me float in the state it's in.
Looks like the Missouri's comin' over to get us, though.>>419583Wow just completely ignore me I see how it is.
… how many flying girls are
Diana. Pleasure to meet you.>>419585
Well at least two of us, I guess. I don't know if anyone else with flight is here. Are you going to be alright?You are picked up by STRONG AMAZOIAN ARMS and flown to the deck of the Missouri>>419584Dex does like fish. He will sniff it a bit to make sure it smells safe to eat, and then he will nomThank… you.The voice is coming from his tail and sounds somewhat demonic.Wondie will float above the deck, earning a bit of a glare from dex, who watches her carefully while nomming his fish.
Permission to come aboard, Captain?She's salute but she's kinda carrying someone. Also she is pretty much wearing an american flag, so Nacy and Ohio will probably pick up on that.
>>419586Navy looks a bit surprised at this cat speaking from his tail ! But she smiles at him.
Oh, you can talk too. Can I get you anything else as thanks for your efforts ?>>419587Then she looks up to Wondie and Iowa. Not knowing the extent of Iowa's injuries, she's got a couple burly men making their way to them with a stretcher.
Yes, of course ! Permission granted, let's get you all whatever medical attention you need, and sooner rather than later.
>>419591Gee, I don't know!Probably something a little bit like…
GAH!Surprise and shock! He's gonna turn slowly and follow the direction that sword just came from right over to Lappland!
… that's… fine! That's fine. I don't mind sharing.
You're, uh… the new person Captain America told me about, huh?
That's right. Call me Lappland.She'll approach and…offer a hand!
I'm a bit of a lone wolf, but I'll try to remember your face in case we're on assignment together :D
Lappland, huh? I'm Deku.Yeah he's giving out his HERO NAME because it's habit.
Remember my face?
>>419596That's fine! Lappland doesn't ever use her real name :D
You work alone for long enough, you tend to forget things like that.She peers UNCOMFORTABLY CLOSE to Deku!
Another human, huh?
Used to working alone? I guess that's not uncommon…Do I need an adult? I feel like I need an adult.
Just be sure to stay out of the splash zone :DLAFF
That's something I've gotta get used to here too. No ears and no tail…y'know, that makes it really
hard to read your expressions!
I'll… be sure to do that!Oh god, she's one of THOSE fighters. This realization is dawning on Deku.
I'm sure you'll get the hang of it sooner or later. Humans are pretty expressive, even without ears and a tail like you have.
I'm guessing you come from somewhere where everyone is like you?
>>419601She just likes jokes! Lappland is a good girl!
Hmmm, I'm getting good at expressions like 'dawning realization and panic'She's enjoying this!
Yup! I'm a Lupo, but there were a few others…some I've even seen here :D
>>419603GO TO WORK, YOU'RE A FUCKING COPGO CHOKE A BLACK DUDE OR SOMETHING
Ah? Oh. Hey, Sho.She sits up on the grass and pats the grass off of her hair and back
Nothing much. Kinda wish Fire Bomber would get sortied during these attacks more. I know it's not the same as back home where we were singing to drive off Protodeviln, but…you know, it might do some good.
Those are probably good emotions to learn how to read.GULP.
So, you… uh…He's gona eye her SWORDS.
You don't use swords like anyone else I've seen before.
Hey, relaaaaaax. We're on the same team :DLappland is going to yank the sword she threw at the dummy out of its FACE.
Damn right! I've got my own style. Suit's me, though…and its more fun than the stodgy old fencing stuff a lot of people do!
Well, not just that. I was practicing that particular move so that I could do it without needing to think when I try to use it in an actual fight.
It's like that Bruce Lee quote that Kick Fury, a pro hero from my world, used to use. "I don't fear the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks one time, but I do fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."
Hah! I guess that's a good approach to take!
So what do you do besides flying kicks? You ain't using any weapons that I
…In space? Are you crazy?YOU'RE RIDICULOUS
It amplifies the effects of our singing. Which…got pretty different from what you'd expect in our conflicts.
Well, no, I don't use any weapons like what you have. But my boots are made to enhance the power of my kicks and help take the shock of the hits off of my legs, and I can use my gauntlets for… um… well, 'wind blasts', I guess is the simplest way to put it.
Weapons aren't my style. I want to be a hero someday who saves everyone with just my own two hands.I don't have any pictures of Deku with the gear he just mentioned, though.
>>419617C'mon, put on the weird rabbit costume. You know you want to.
Ohhh, that's definitely an ambitious goal~
So you're just gonna punch people's swords out of the way?
>>419622Lappland would totally chase him if he wore that.
Guns can be pretty nasty if you don't handle them right!
Up to date, I've been quick enough to avoid anyone getting a good shot at me and my costume has some ballistic lining to help protect me… that doesn't mean I'm taking the threat lightly, though.
I'm not sure how much a sword would help me against a gun anyways…
Depends on how hard you can throw it :DLappland waves her sword at the dummy.
You must be pretty speedy then! How fast do you go?
Yeah, but the problem there is that I don't even know where to start
for crying out loud…
Hmm…Sho thinks for a moment.
Maybe start by explaining what the Macross 7 Megaroad is.
>>419628Oh my god you're Green LLENN.I mean
Seems like you've got a lot of fun abilities, Deku!
Hey, wanna help me try something out~?
You might be starting to get why it was hard to find a starting point. But, um…well, it was the result of the war with the Zentradi, a race of aliens that were…well, basically giant humans. Which…there's kind of a reason for.Sigh
This is so complicated.
Well, my Quirk lets me help people at least, I don't know about fun
so much. I…Oh that is a DANGEROUS question!
Um, sure. What is it you want to try?
I want you to try to hit me as hard as you can :DGRIN
You've got some kind of physical power, right? Pretty sure that Steve guy wouldn't let a random kid in here just 'cause of heart and determination or whatever. I want to see your best shot!
You want me to what?He heard her, it's just like wat.
No way, that's way too dangerous!
C'mon! It'll be fun. Think of it like sparring :D
If you're afraid of hurtling little' ol' me, then just hit me half as hard as you can! The idea of breaking your own bones with your stupid levels of strength doesn't really occur to her, of course.
Or whatever. I promise I won't cry :D
I…He's REALLY not sure about this. But he's gonna take a stance, seems like he's getting ready for a straight punch!
Alright, if you're sure, but… I definitely need to not hit her 'as hard as I can', though. For my own sake and hers…That doesn't mean he isn't using his quirk, it's just that percentage of Full Cowl.
Here I go!And… PAAAAANCH! To the stomach, he's not about to try and slug her in the face.
Wha-There's no stumble, and Deku definitely has a pretty strong punch, even without his Quirk! But it's definitely not gonna be anything Lappland can't handle.Deku looks… flabbergasted. He's staring at his hand as though his body just betrayed him.
What the hell!?
Heheh, it does
work here! I was a bit worried for a while!She grins a gives Deku a thumbs up!
Don't worry, it only lasts a second or so~
Only a second or so…Deku is gonna test this by aiming off in a direction away from ANYBODY and balling up his hand like he's going to flick someone on the forehead.And flick his finger he does!And this causes a HUGE burst of hurricane force wind. If Lappland had been hit by that even she would have been launched into a wall at a truly uncomfortable velocity!As it is, some of the destroyed dummies get smashed to even smaller pieces against the wall.
Wow… it's like Eraser Head's quirk, but for a really short time and seems to need physical contact instead of just eye contact…
Ohhhh, impressive!Lappland taps the tip of her sword against the ground by way of applause! She doesn't seem overly worried 'cause…well, she's not terribly concerned with getting hurt!
Dunno who that is, but I like his handle. Spiritual Destruction keeps going as long as I keep hitting them, too. Fun, huh? :D
So as long as you keep making contact, you keep their power subdued… that sounds really useful, actually.Deku puts a hand to his chin and starts to MUTTER.
But does it need physical contact with the body or does it work if your attack gets parried or something? At that point it just comes down to how long can you keep their power subdued before getting the combo interrupted by them or their allies… it might make protecting you while you deal with a high priority target worthwhile, but only if…MUTTER MUTTER MUTTER.
>>419643Lappland finds this science muttering amusing! Deku gets another chuckle!
You're really into that sorta thing, huh?
You know, I've had people break down and cry in the middle of a fight 'cause they can't use their special power that makes your blood explode or whatever. Those are definitely moments to treasure~
Eh? Well… I spent a lot of time analyzing heroes and coming up with theories and stuff on how to effectively use Quirks, so… I guess so.Oh boy, now she's talking about treasuring moments when people cry.
E-eheh… I'll, uh… take your word for it…He clearly doesn't share her sentiment!
'Quirks,' huh? Good name.Nod!
Looks like we both got somethin' outta that, anyway! Thanks for bein' my guinea pig :D
>>419647Huzzah!>>419648Landing time, hooray!
Ah… thanks. Moving clearly with some tenderness, she's gonna start reaching to try and shuck her ship gear! She's definitely in no state to be lugging this around.
>>THE BURLY MEN
Aw, shucks boys, this ain't nothin' that a long soak in the right kinda bath won't fix.Haha repair baths, because… reasons. Also just a gentle reminder for the big burly men that this is (mostly) about how Iowa looks right about now.
Ha… kinda embarassing to ask, but you boys mind helping a gal get undressed?She indicates the ship gear, which she's having some trouble removing, considering the damage to both her and said gear.
>>419647>>419648Navy nods at Dex, and opts to let him do his watching !Then to Song and Wondie both…
I'm glad you two are all right. Though if you need anything, don't hesitate to ask for it.>>419651The boys seem almost too eager to help Iowa out of her gear, a few of them immediately springing up to help
… Save your misbehaviour for the bars on land, boys.:|
>>419648Song will notice Wondie rub her bracers.
So that's how you block those bullets, huh?>>419651>>419652Song will laugh a bit at Navy's reaction.
A drink would be nice.
Yes. When Athena and Hephaestus work together, they create some fairly useful items. It's a shame they don't do it more often.>>419652
Well if you have any information on those attackers, I wouldn't mind hearing about it.She looks at Dex and smiles, but doesn't say anything to him.>>419651Wondie will smile at this display
>>419652Oh my, she's got HELPING HANDS!
Appreciate it, boys~!Beat.
Woh! Watch the hands there, darlin'!No doubt she will shortly be divested of her ship gear, and freed from it's weight, she seems able to at least move around on her own. Albeit a bit gingerly.Someone's gonna have to insist to get her on the stretcher, though, this much is clear.>>419653
I could sure go for a good sweet tea right about now…>>419654YOU wanted to help undress her, didn't you?
>>419653The sailor getting too handsy with Iowa gets bonked by Navy's sheathed sabre !
You heard the lady. Drinks, now.Navy glares at him as he runs off with a quick "a-aye cap'n" :|>>419654Sigh.
Afraid I don't have any, besides their munitions being awfully similar to those of a battleship.>>419655
… And you can hardly stand. At least lay down until we can get you your bath.
Well, no! There were circumstances, see, and…
No, I didn't.
…Well, I guess it doesn't really matter here! Still~
Athena? She exists in your world as well?>>419655>>419658
I was thinking about something with more of a punch than just tea…She'll look at Navy.
What drinks do you have here?
Sounds like it.He'll smile at her.
What happened after that war?
Yeah… I was under the impression that attacks of that caliber were due to the size of battle ships, but I suppose the found a way to shrink them down…>>419655
You should probably lie down, sister.Yeeeep>>419661
Indeed. All the Gods seemed to exist in my world, though I am most familiar with the Greek ones. Are you a follower or someone they screwed over? Or both… Lots of people are both.
>>419658Iowa rolls her eyes a little in that 'you sound like my mom' kind of way.But she's gonna gingerly ease herself onto that stretcher!
Aye aye, ma'am.>>419661PUNCH>>419663
Sister? Iowa clearly thinks there's something odd about that! But she's curious more than incredulous.IN ANY CASE Iowa is going to settle in and wind up getting lethargic and quiet! 'Cause this fight took a lot out of her.Also because my brain is slowly catching on fire.Please understand.
The Athena from my world wasn't really a diety…She was a guardian primal beast.
I've never met her personally, but I heard she was really powerful.
Oh, one of them is here? I suppose you're on friendly terms now….
>>419674I THOUGHT YOU SAID NO BUTTMewtwo looks to Abby for a sec
We're not here to kill. We're just protecting others.And then Erika
…And thank you as well…I will help you get home, if you'd like.
As long as she's happy, that's what really matters…
Anyway, I'm sure Fire Bomber will get it's chance to shine on the battlefield at some point.
>>419677Abby will shake her head and disagree
Boma snow. Aboma bom.Abomasnow bom.*In normal battle. This was not normal. They tried to kill my charges.Coco will but in with their minds to try and break some tension!Hey come on, don't be so serious! We won and people are safe! We think that's a win no matter what!Erika will smile at mewtwo
Ah thank you, that would be very nice. I was given a small apartment by the city It's… Welll it's somewhere in the city.Erika is bad at directions!
>>419680BACKSASS ME AGAIN, ABBY, SEE WHAT HAPPENS
…I see…I suppose rather than take you there, I will escort you, then.Exhales a bit and hovers up next to Erika
Are you hurt?
>>419684Yeah but do you know "CRUSH INTO PASTE WITH PSYCHIC MIGHT"?!
That is good. I do not want to lose a friend so soon after making one…And this CHATTY Coco who's actually pretty cool it's okay to be chatty
That's…neat? That I'm Mewtwo?
>>419686BITCH, IF YOU
For quite some time, yes. I've seen…quite a few things come and go in this world…for better or for worse.And Coco again
I see…In a sense, it could be good or bad. It's…a bit lonely, though.
And attacks like this… Am I to believe that they are frequent?
You didn't seemed surprised it was happening.The Eggs frown!Oh no! Sorry, We didn't think of that… We can't even imagine what that's like, we've always had at least each other. Being only one things must be difficult… We were just thinking of rare from a positive way of looking at it.
They are…semi-frequent. More often than they should be happening.SighsBack to Coco
Don't worry. It's really not all that bad, even if it is somewhat lonely.
There are…various groups that the citizens of Leyang have somehow earned the ire of…Some more organic than others…Some more dead.HI COCO
Thank you…I do appreciate having more friends…I do need to finish building my new home…
More in the way of zombies than ghosts. But there are also living ones. But…I would sooner they all just went away and left everyone in peace.Mewtwo's a good boy
…And thank you, Coco. But I do need to procure the material first. I suspect I may need to make money and buy it at some point.
Dungeons…I wonder. I'm not quite certain how else to procure the money required for materials. I am not…well-suited for a work environment.Coco's a good girl
I will. Thank you again.
I'll head over to signup in the morning. That fight did make me very tiredErika Yaaaaaawn
Exeggu! Exegg!You're always tired!Erika will laugh
True enough, Coco…They'll arrive in front of an apartment building
Oi.Phos is going to prod at the bed with the confidence of one who doesn't fear death!
You're in the wrong house or something.
>>419709The Tanglela runs up to the pair!, waving her vines!
Tang!She will use her vines to shake Erika awake!
Huh? Oh dear is it time to eat already….The gym leader will sleepily blink her eyes open
Gah!Sheets are yanked! Revealing a teenage girl!
Hey you're not one of the bears!
Is Antarc a bear?She smiles!
Cuz I was lost and tired!She nods, as if this is a good reason!
I don't even know what a bear is!
Don't break into people's houses just to have a nap! Even I know that!
Rise and shine.The psychic duo are waiting when Erika opens her eyes, waving sheepishly.
It's nice to see you again.
But I didn't break anything! I just opened the door and came in! It's not my fault locks like me!She looks confused!
Wait you don't know what a bear is?
>>419718Erika will look up towards this speaker!
Sabby!She hops up, displaying more energy and alertness then usual!
It's so great to see you!Angela the Tangela will wave at them again
No that's a Lockes! And my skin flakes are not gross! I am very hygienic!She'll take off one of her earings and hold it up to the rock lady
Bears are these! But… Bigger! Like a lot bigger with claws and teeth! They make really good porridge!Her earing is a little golden teddy bear. It's adorable!
I don't believe you.Phos is going to inspect the bear!
…OK. There aren't any of those here.
But I am!Her eyes go wide and her mouth drops open at this horrific news!
Oh no, how can I fulfill my destiny with no bears?!Panik
>>419721Sabrina pulls Erika into a hug, being one of the few people she's really willing to get that close to.
I didn't realize anyone else had wound up in this place. You seem to be taking it well though…The whiff of pollen that Erika and her team typically carry gets a sneeze out of Alakazam, but he otherwise seems friendly.
Have you seen anyone else from Kanto?
What kind of destiny requires bears? That's even weirder than sleeping in other people's houses.
I ended up here a few days ago. It's a bit of shock, but we don't always control our lives fully. At least this place seems mostly nice, except for the invasions.Huuuuuuuuuuug. She nods her head
I met Mewtwo a few nights ago, that…. was quite a shock. Other than him, the only other's I've met have been a few pokemon and a trainer from other regions. No other gym leaders!Angela will go into Erika's purse and grab some tissues with her vines, handing them to Alakazam!
Hey Antarc. This weirdo broke in and slept in my bed. Apparently she has to sleep with bears and she thought they were here for some reason.
Well I wasn't trying
to get my destiny done with here! I just appeared outside on the street and now I don't know where I am! But it's cold and I was tired so came in here! And I didn't break
anything, I just unlocked your door and came in!>>419731
Ooh a kight! But without armor! You should get armor!
It's been some months for me. The invasions were a bit of a surprise-Sabrina blinks.
Oh. I didn't realize you knew him. He's quite a solitary fellow, most times…She'll have to bully him for that later.
I suppose I should be glad that more weren't trapped here. Still, I've missed you quite a bit, I'll admit.Alakazam levitates the tissue from Angela's grip, and then gingerly pets her cute little head as a show of gratitude.
Why would she think there's bears in this kind of place?>>419733
I'm no knight, but I will happily defend my home from someone who breaks and enters.
That's breaking in!
…You appeared on the street?
I don't know…Phos feels a little bad now!
But it sounds like she's…uh, y'know. New.
I've missed you toooo~ You're the one I'd prefer to be stranded with the most out of all the gym leaders.Even though it has only been like a week for her
He is, but I managed to convince him to let me and my pokemon go to his house when he gets it built.Angela will hop up in joy after these headpats!
No it's just entering! Breaking requires something to break!
Geeze you guys are so stubborn! It's like talking to rocks…She tilts her head!
There is very few people I would excuse coming into our home to take a nap just because they are new, and none of them are human…but…I'll hold off on subduing her.Antarc put the sword away.
You're in another world that has a habit of dimensional kidnapping, is the long and short of it. Welcome to Leyang…Dramaville specifically.
You-And then Antarc Antarc'd
You should do it a little more delicately, Antarc! Now she's gonna cry or something.
I feel the same way about you…don't tell Janine that, though.It's not often that Sabrina flusters, but Erika's flattery gets her a little red in the face.
It's nice to see him making friends. He's a kind soul, even if he's lonely.
Dimensional kidnapping? Another World? Hmmm…..She then pulls out a Mirror pad and starts typing notes! She shifts from sad to determined!
Do we know who's responsible for the kidnapping or why? Do portals to other worlds work here? Have you heard of Ever After or Wonderland? How long have you two been here? Who's investigating ways out? Who names a town Dramaville anyway?
Well it's hard to be lonely when Bella's around, you know how she is.That is Erika's Bellossom. She babby and all about making friends.
So what have you been up to since arriving? Gym Leader doesn't seem to be a job here, so I've been looking into this Dungeon Diving thing…
What's the point in being delicate? Besides she seems to be handling it well.Antarc gestures
As for the questions, I think the world just does that, I don't think so, Yes in books, close to a year now for myself, I don't know if anyone's looking for a way out, humans.
I guess she is…
…I think Kokonoe's trying to find a way out…but I wouldn't bother her.
>>419744She will furiously jot down all these answers
Thanks, that'll help my investigation!
Hmmm… So if no one's found a way out I guess I'm stuck here for the time being…
So you're not human? Are you guys like Elves or faeries?>>419745
Why not? That seems like a good person to bother!
Ooh! I should Introduce myself! I'm Blondie Lockes, daughter of Goldielockes! I'm from Ever After
I haven't had a lot to do besides training, I'll admit. Ennui is beginning to take hold of me.Meditation can only soothe boredom so much…
Perhaps I could also look in on this, "Dungeon Diving" business with you. If you'd have me, that is.
…Uh, but yeah…I'm Phos. That's Antarc.
Oh I'd love to have you my dear~Erika smiles and Sabrina gets another big hug!
It'll be very exciting, I'm sure! And probably useful to get my pokemon used to battling more than just other pokemon.
Oh wow! Gems in Ever After never spoke! Boy I bet guys frustrate Dragons, don't you?She beams
Well it's nice to me you both!
My team and I could use more pressure to train against as well. You'll have to show us the ropes.Thoughts of
girls pretty go through Sabrina's mind as she's hugged again, but she manages to catch herself before she looks too zoned out in front of her friend.
But that can wait. You mentioned that you were hungry earlier, if you wanted to go get something to eat…Alakazam makes a scoffing noise behind her, evidently keen to his trainer's behavior, and Sabrina telekinetically yanks his mustache as revenge.
Ah I see… So they must be rare here… This world's got an interesting distribution of things it seems…She is still tapping away notes>>419754
Some kind of heroes guild to help keep villains at bay?
Aren't most explorers also heroes? I don't think I know any stories about a villain who explores….>>419758
You're an adventurer gem? That's cool!
I wouldn't say a person who just goes into holes in the ground for kicks is a hero. Besides, obviously villains explore things, where do they get all their evil treasures and resources?Antarc points at Phos like an annoyed older sibling
And you're not joining unless Kokonoe can find a way to keep you from breaking into a million pieces.
to be, but->>419760
That.YOU MADE PHOS SAD.
Hmmm… Well all the villains I know at my school inherited their Treasures. She shrugs
How villains get their stuff and why is never really all that important to the stories, so I guess maybe the explore in their off time?>>419761
Ooooh you're like Humphrey! That egg head was always falling apart.
Maybe you just need really strong glue?
Or all the kings horses and men?
I…hadn't thought about that kind of thing? Seems strange to think about.
Personally I think there's some kind of stone Phos could probably combine with somehow, but we haven't found it yet.
If they're broken I can't move them…>>419766
Kokonoe could probably do something like that…but I don't want to bother her more…
Combining with other stones…I'm not some giant robot from one of Travis' shows!
You can combine with other stones?
Neat! Maybe one of the gems from that dragon's horde would work?>>419767
Ah darn, so much for that idea.
Why do you seem so scared of this Kokonoe lady?
You literally had different legs when I saw you before I came here. It's not outside the realm of possibility for a weirdo like you.>>419768
They can, that's not really my game. Replacing parts of myself would effect my memories.
They're scared of the rock tumbler.
The rock tumbler.>>419769
You're scared of the rock tumbler too! Any sensible person would be!
I'm not scared because I don't bother her and need to be fixed every day.Looks to Blondie
Yes. A giant rock tumbler.
She's not really 'super mean,' she just…uh, doesn't like being interrupted…>>419778
Yeah, like Alexi.
I'd say she's more like Rutile.
You're using words weirdly again.>>419781
…Maybe both? The look she gets in her eyes kind of reminds me of Alexi sometimes.
Yeah!! You know, the part of the story your parents did that you have to practice for and do yourself, so that the universe doesn't collapse!>>419782
I don't think I am…
Yes but Alexandrite is a very…specific sort of problem.>>419783
…You're definitely using weird words now.>>419784
Yeah, the people who made you! You're supposed to grow up to be like them and fill out their roll!
Do you guys not have parents?>>419785
Whaaaat? How so?
Oh, like Sensei and our jobs. I don't believe he ever thought to make use like him, or wanted us to be anything but happy and safe all things considered.
I've…not heard the term "parents" before.
Hmmm… Jobs might be your worlds version of destines maybe?
But either way parents look after you and care for you when your young and they're generally pretty great!>>419788
Yes! That's how you… Uhh make more animals and people!Blondie will flush red a bit. >____>
Err, also love is important to that! Don't forget about love.
Oh…yes that's right. Progenitors for animals and the like.>>419789
Sensei definitely sounds like our parent then. I don't think he had anything to do with our 'birth' though, outside of shaping our bodies.
Yeah, we don't do that. It's gross.>>419790
Mmm, I do kind of wonder what he would do if one of us called him ''dad." Do you think he knows about that kind of thing?
You were born before you had a shape?>>419791
No it's not! It's a beautiful thing!Blush
Err, wait, were you talking about love or reproduction?
Our bodies were "vaguely" humanoid, but Sensei polished us down to what you see now.
They were talking about reproduction.
Oh, that's alright then! Yeah the other thing can beShe shakes her head
But love is great! It's like the best thing ever! Platonic love, family love, and romantic love are all great!She may or may not have had Cupid as roommate for a few years…
Wait you don't love each other? Aren't you family?
… That's… Antarc DESPERATELY wracks brain for a way to say thing without making Phos super annoying
I 「care」 about Phosphophyllite.
Mmmm, I guess we're family…we've got the same 'father,' right?>>419796Phos is totally going to take this chance to annoy Antarc.
Ehhhhh, you care about me? :DFace related!
Welll that's a start, I guess.>>419797
That usually makes you family!
Obviously, someone has to watch out for an idiot like you.>>419798
We're "siblings" yes.
Five more months…She's probably fine, she just needs some heat.
Uh… Sure, I guess I can.She will continue to cast fire 1! She wasn't a black mage for very long, she just wanted the low level spells.
So you're like some kind of heat vampire Dragon?
Well you're sort of absorbing heat and being revived by it…She shrugs.
Well you seem a bit better now, but why were you so… cold? It's not that cold out.
Vampires are cold blooded too!
But how come you're sleeping outside and not in a warm house?
Uh-huh, but vampires don't breathe fire.
Anyway I was on my way home, and…:thinking:
I gueeeeess I must have fallen asleep.She says with a tone that seems to imply it happens a lot.
>>419824She looks at Ozma like she just said something dumb @:
What am I supposed to do, stay at home under the heat lamp ?
Then it melts eventually !
I'm pretty tough, I'd probably be fine.She would not be fine at all.
