That doesn't make it better!
Noses don't grow back!
How do you know, you ever lost a nose ?
'Cause I've never lost mine.
No, but I know how fleshy structures work!Ozma shakes her head!Why are all dragons like this!
My point is you should be trying to not die!
But I am trying not to die !
And seeing I'm still alive, I think I'm doing a great job at it.She nods confidently !
Well, if it was Maggie there would probably be illusions too, right…?
So it must be a youkai!Sanae spins around and launches a blast of danmaku stars!
Aaaaaa!She stops casting fire to message her head
>>419847A few moments later, her mysterious pink adversary will reveal itself!This adorable little thing will float out from behind the post of the shrine gate thingy it was hiding behind! Seemingly paying Sanae no mind at all, it will float over to the frozen danmaku.
Mew!It then starts flitting around the various frozen stars! It looks at one, floats around it to get a look from a few angles, then moves on to another one.
Mew, mewmew!It seems to rather approve of their glowy appearance!
What ? Oh…
You stopped doing the thing.Yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwn.
…Ah.Sanae is briefly stunned!
Oh. My. Gods.She breaks into a HUGE SMILE!
No! Stay awake!Fire 1 :@
How do you lose heat so fast…Ozma sighs thinking
You-…you're…um…You're really famous where I'm from! I had a stuffed animal version of you and I even-Sanae pauses, rethinking "I waited in line for four hours one day to get you."
…I even liked you more than Pikachu :D
>>419855Sanae probably flies almost as fast as Mew, so she will enter the shrine hot on Mew's tail.
Mew mew!Mew hustles on over to a drawer and, using those ADORABLE little paws, pulls a drawer open. A quick scan of what's inside, and then Mew opens the next one. And the next!Assuming Sanae doesn't interfere with Mew's search, the little legendary will repeat this process with a few different storage containers before finding something of interest.
Mew!~It's… a sheet of paper! Some of the paper she uses for making paper charms and such. Mew grabs it and excitedly zips over to Sanae, presenting it to her with some urgency.
Duh, it's cold.
I haven't even had enough coffee either.'Enough' coffee here meaning a constant supply.
…Sanae stares for a second at this autograph!
…Then it clicks! She's going to laugh!
Ah…t-thank you very much, Mew! I'll be sure to treasure this :D
Um…would you like to wash your hands off? The kitchen's right there.
Yeah but you should be able to retain some heat with your clothes…
Maybe you need an upgrade in wardrobe.
Hmmmmm…Vivace squints judgingly at Ozma !
I don't know about that, that sounds expensive.
Fine, I guess I'm gonna have to part with some of my treasure.
So what would you like: Just some outerwear, outerwear with a portable heat source, or a personal chef?
How am I supposed to answer a question like that ?
I don't know how much you want for any of it.
I'm too tired for this.
How about you just pick something from my hoard and take that as payment ?
Mmm, that's right…I keep forgetting you can't talk!
Ummmm…do you like mochi? :D
No, I'm alright with-ahh!Ozma's gonna keep casting fire in the sky!
Thaaank youContinuing to fire power the dargon with fire
Oh wow, you've sure got a lot of stuff…Ozma will poke around, primarily looking for gems and rare metals
Are all dragons so… disorganized? Cuz my room mate's house looked a lot like this before I moved in.
If you need help cataloging or organizing things I'd be happy to help.
>>419895The big spood will stop and turn her large body to face this smol vamp! Incapable of speech, she responds as best she can by chittering and waving one of her forearms in return.
"See? What'd I tell you? People around here aren't gonna be bothered by you at all."The spood turns back to the Tiefling and chitters happily.
"Her name is Kistral by the way."
It's nice to meet you Kistral!
I'm Draculaura, but you can call me Lala for short.
I'm afraid I never learned spider in school. All the spiders I knew back home spoke English.She'll turn to the Tiefling
Vell, I don't know that's true so much. Most of the normies here seem to be fine vith most things, but some are pretty judgmental.
>>419897Kistral faces the smol again and chitters more. Communication is not her strong suit, but one might assume she understands what Drac has to say.
"Never heard of a spider speaking, but i'll believe anything is possible. You kinda have to guess and gauge her reaction when there isn't any dirt for her to write in."She'll tug at her cloak and lean upon a nearby wall.
"That's why i'm taking her through town. I figure the more people see her with me the less likely someone'll give her a hard time. I don't have a spacious basement for her to live in anymore."More chittering from Kistral. She liked that basement! It was very spacious and quite cozy.
Yis. Alot of things that vere common in my vorld are strange here, and vise versa.
Vhy does she not have a basement to live in anymore?
Oh yeah, tell me about it. I miss having my castle too… And all my clothes and make up and stuff.
Can't you get her an apartment of her own? Maybe one vith a bigger door?
"Yeah. Hells only know what all my people are doing without me. I'll be pretty disappointed if I they're not taking care of the place while i'm gone."Been a few years too. They'd better not think i'm dead.She (hmms)
"Now I hadn't thought of that… that'd need to be a pretty big door…"
Vell I'm sure your people are taking care of it!Lala smiles
True, but I'm sure someone here could at least modify an existing place for her. I mean she's sentient, right? She should have a nice place to live!I mean a Vampire can get citizenship, why not a big spider?
"I'm sure. I only recruited the best after all."Best of the Best or you're not hired :@
"Yeah, I have to figure someone could. Whaddya say Kistral, do you want your own house?"This is not an easy question for a spider with no grasp of the spoken world to answer, and as such shuffles in place a bit.
"Something to figure out. Either that I get a bigger place."
Zat could verk too. I hope she gets a place to be happy.Lala will now look over this semi-demon!
So vhat kind of monster are you? I'm a vampire, in case you couldn't tell!
"Ooh, been a while since someone called me a monster. I'm a tiefling."She will squint at this vamp when she says that's what she is.
"Is that right? It's hard for me to tell since the first vampires I ever met were green and had glowing red eyes."Lirum's eyes glow but her's are pink. Yay demon genetics!
Tiefling? Dats a new one on me!
Oooh, I know some vamps like dat. They're the sort of nosferatu types.
I'm not one of them, I'm just a normal vampire. Or at least normal for home? I don't know vhat is normal here.She'll smile wide, showing off her fangs!
"It's a new one for a lot of people. In short, demon blood goes a ways back in the family tree."And who knows how far! She shrugs.
"Who's to say what's normal around here? I can't even say what a normal vampire is like where i'm from since every single one i've met has tried to kill me."I'd imagine Lirums teeth are also pointy, but all of them are pointy.
Oooh! I've known some demons! Most of them were pretty nice.Lala frowns
Oh no! I'm sorry my people vere mean to you. The whole… Blood thing drives some of them a bit crazy. That's vhy I vent Vegan!
"In my experience the thinner the blood, the nicer. Better chances meeting a "nice" devil so long as you don't sign any contracts."Drac's apologies are waved off.
"Ehh don't apologize for other people's actions. Especially when they're enthralled by an ancient being corrupted by the shadow weave… unless they were willing? It's not like they were interested in talking… and what's a vegan?"
>>419910She doesn't understand a lot of those words! But she nods anyway
Ancient being, huh?
Oh! A vegan is someone who doesn't eat or use animal products! So I don't drink blood or vare leather or eat cheese or anything like dat!
I'll take that as a yes! Sanae will retreive DELICIOUS MOCHI from the fridge!
It doesn't keep very well, but I got some for my other guests…She offers up the tray!
"Yeah there's a story there, but I won't spring that on anyone without their consent. It's a lengthy one."Lirum is understandably confused. She also looks down at her own clothing as her currently outfit is primarily snow leopard leather.
"Ah… how? Don't vampire's need blood? I won't question the other parts but I have to bite on that one."
Vell I'm doing alright I think. I just eat lots of veggies and take my iron supplements! Is just as good!It may or may not be just as good. She's a pretty weak vampire in canon. Lala will notice Lirum looking at her own outfit
Oh, I don't expect others to be vegan just because that's my lifestyle. My best freind and my boyfreind are both Verevolves, and boy do they love steak…She sighs, missing her freinds
"Huh… well if it works it works. You have to expect differences that go against the grain."She wasn't worried about offending, just more consious about thhe fact most people around here don't wear as much leather as a rule. She doesn't care though.
"Werewolves eh? I met a pair of gnome werewolves once. I got a big box of bugs I gave to Kistral here."She indicates to spood, who chitters very happily at the memory. That's how they became friends, and they were very tasty bugs.
That's the monster vay! At least in vorld it vas. Differences make unlife more exciting!She will then go full all smiles at the mention of gnome werewolves
Oooh I don't know any gnomes! Gnome verevolves sound totes adorable!
Vhy did they give you a box of bugs though?
"Ah… well… they didn't really give
me the bugs. I kinda took them after they lured me and my friends into their home so they could eat us."She rubs the back of her neck.
"They were kinda adorable up until that point ya know?"
Monster is just a type of creature that's not human or like… fairy or elves? Those are more Ever Afters territory.
So in my world da Vampires and Verevolves and Zombies and mummies and all that are collectively known as monsters. But ve aren't really very different from humans. Some are jerks, but most are okay. She shrugs
But I think maybe my vorld vas the veird one. I think your definition of monster is more common.
"I'm not going to lie and say what you're describing sounds anything like what I'm familiar with. Elves are pretty common though."Cheek scratch.
"But nah, your world is normal. Normal is always where you're from, and definitely not about this place or mine."
HEY!And here's an angry smoking man staring down these skellymans. They're just, like…harassing people…I mean, are they beating people up?…They're getting pointed at
Cut it out.
>>419937Smoker isn't sure how to handle this situation
'm I supposed to arrest 'em?He's gonna pull out his fuckin' jutte anyway
'Cause I will if I gotta. Come at me, then.
…Picks up one of these bowls to investigate
This is…different…Guess we have candy to distribute at the police station now though…Looks around
Anyway, who's responsible for this?
>>419950Congratulations, you've blown its FACE clean off !It explodes and drops candy just like the skeletons.
Oh my~ You might be a little strong for these, don't you think ?
*Ozoi picks up a piece of candy and EATS IT, making an appearance in such a manner that one might be unsure as to whether she'd been there the whole time.
>>419951Smoker, thankfully, does not punch big lady in the face as his fist and arm reform
So this is your doing? Next time, consider putting a sign on 'em that says "hit me." Could do ya a world'a good.Walks over to one of these candy bowls and hands it to a passing trick-or-treater with a pat on the head
So this your idea of handin' out candy?
Ah-ah, they wouldn't be scary at all if the objective was too obvious.
There must be a 'trick' part to 'trick or treat', after all.She raises a good pont with a smile on her face.
…Hmm…Considerin' the kinda people populatin' this town, you might onto somethin'…Though someone did
call the cops, which is why I'm here. It ain't gonna be everyone.
Oh come now, people call the cops for everything.
A few spooky skeletons, mutilated corpses in a few back alleys…Last year's little halloween prank. Fake corpses so lifelike it likely would have taken an autopsy to find out they weren't real.
Dammit, that was you?!
You know, you gave us a real hard time with those!
>>419956Ozoi has a giggle at this !
Hmhm, what can I say ? I'm quite good at what I do. Some might even say that I'm the best~
It was rather entertaining to watch the investigation while it lasted, but I must acknowledge that a little prank shouldn't last forever.Which is to imply, of course, that she could have used real corpses with no identity instead.
I have many names, but you can call me Ozoi.
It is a pleasure to meet you, policeman~She does a curtsy with blood dripping from her skirt !gif related
Oh no, that's quite normal.
But I could take it further if you'd like. Perhaps a little puzzle box would do the trick…Ozoi no
>>419962Smoker puffs his cigars in thought
I think we'll pass on any puzzle boxes on Halloween. We don't need Halloween to become an actual
That is certainly for the best.Ozoi nods in agreement !
Puzzle boxes do have a way of being quite unhealthy for those who open them.
That's how it goes, the world can't always be peaceful~
Not to worry, the heroes of this one do an admirable job of balancing out the chaos.
Let's say I'm not out to cause serious harm.
But there are plenty more where they came from, more than enough for everyone.:)
Now you're getting it~
Please do have fun with them.With that she's gone ! But there's plenty of spooky scary skeletons and zombies around to punch.
Well, I suppose he would count as classical! He was court musician to Emperor Murakami~
Oh? That's alright~
What's popular these days, then? :DThis appears to be a genuine, if slightly clueless, question.
>>419982Was she checking out the belly dancer outfit because she was waiting for Umeko who insisted Felli stay RIGHT HERE before suddenly zipping off?I bet it was, 'cause that's a thing Umeko did.But now…
Hey Felli~!That was drawn out, like 'fellliiiiiii~', but that looked too silly to write.Then I did it anyways.ANYWAYS hey Umeko's voice is trying to get her attention, it seems!When she turns 'cause she's GONNA she might see Umeko wearing an outfit not all THAT different from the one she was just looking at. She's striking a pose! Pretend the background in the picture is a not-Egyptian street.
Do you think Jon will like it~?
…Felli's gonna take a second or two here.
…I think so. Yes. Very much so.
>>419988I only bothered to get the one picture of Umeko in that outfit.
You hesitated there.She takes a moment to look down at herself.
Is it too much?
>>419986Aaron seems to consider this question for a moment
Not about popular. About what you like.He pats his chest a couple times
Makes it feel good here.
I was taking a moment to be jealous.Felli makes a placating gesture!
Are you going to learn to dance like they do here too?
… why?She's a little more focused on the source of Felli's jealousy, but she manages after a moment to answer that latter question.
I mean… maybe? I doubt I'd be as good as they are. At least anytime soon.
Mmm, but I don't have much experience with modern music, you see!Smile smile!
So I thought I would start with what's popular, and try different things from there! :D
You pull that outfit off quite well. I don't think I could.
…Hmm. I don't think Jon would mind if you're not perfect at it.
Oh… pff.Umeko is gonna walk on over to Felli and put an arm around her shoulders.
First off, jealousy is when you're afraid someone is going to take what you have. Envy is when you want what someone else has. What you're feeling is more like envy.Wait, what? Since when did this dumb fox know things?
And secondly, I bet you'd look every bit as good in this as I do. If not even better.… oh no… as she says this, she's starting to try and guide Felli into the shop.
>>419995Umeko was Homer this whole time?
I was using the term colloquia-FELLI DIGS IN
No.She does not want to go through that door!
I don't have the right complexion.
And I don't dance.
Your complexion is fine
! Pale is very fetching!LEEEEEAN.
And neither do I! We can learn together.
Noted. Ow.She's gonna climb off of Felli and take a moment to rub her head, before holding a hand out to help Felli up.
But hey, you're inside! Let's get you fitted.
…You're really going to insist on this?
Well, why WOULDN'T I insist on this? You'll look good, and what's more important, we'll get to blow Jon's mind right out of his head together.She puts a hand on Felli's shoulder again.
But more seriously, if you really
don't want to, then we don't have to. I thought you were just… playing hard to get about it, so to speak. I know that's not really what that means, but it's the only way I could think of it.
>>420008Yuyuko's gonna float along and CHAT.
I mostly enjoy poetry, but Youmu mentioned that they have ways to make music now that don't require musicians! It's been terribly
difficult to get performers to come to my residence, so I asked around for the best music store in town and people sent me here! :D
>>420010Aaron's ears turn slightly red and his pace quickens. It would appear he was happy to hear thatAt any rate, he eventually makes it to a section with classical Japanese music, including some Toko drums and all that good shit
…Might not be what you're looking for…but could be close enough.He points off to the side a bit
Demo station. If you need it.
I only slightly
almost killed you getting you in here. Besides, it's your own fault for resisting!She's gonna lead Felli RIGHT on over to this here clothier!
Here she is! A pat on Felli's shoulder.
have already paid for the fitting and the outfit, so don't you worry about a thing~
Ohh, these look quite exciting!Yuyuko is going to pick up a few cases and inspect them carefully!
How do you get the music out of them? :D
>>420022Yet again, Umeko's putting an arm around Felli.She's been a lot more touchy-feely ever since… y'know, snogging her.
Don't mention it. I figured you would look good in it… and yowza, I was right.
We make a hell of a pair here!
Ah, let me see…Yuyuko reaches into a sleeve and produces a couple of gold coins. There's easily a couple of ounces in each one.
Will these be enough? :DThere's like $4,000 worth of gold there.
….Boutta make my manager make me supervisor
Sound system. Only thing in the store we do delivery for.
That sounds wonderful! I'll leave the details to you, alright~?
I live in the residence to the east of town…have you seen it? The one with all the cherry trees :D
Oh, yeah! This place is great
when you can just get a drink anytime you want.As Felli fiddles with those baubles, Umeko will reach right over and fiddle with them right after Felli is done.
Don't leave them out of place, silly.
I wasn't planning to.
…A drink sounds good, though.
…Not an alcoholic one.
Yeah. No alcohol. No more hangovers. Or awkward conversations from
Something fruity, I think.
… wanna wear these out, turn some heads? =D
Well, I'll be sure to get Youmu to help you bring everything up! It's quite a walk from the gate to the house, you see :D
… you dress quick when you want to.Blink.
A maid outfit? Me
? I dunno…
Satsuki makes me wear that maid outfit every year for Halloween. Now you get to do it too.
That doesn't matter if I know where you're going.
Also I'll tell Jon. He will help me in this.
I'll tell him where you're especially ticklish, too.
You haven't been in the room to know where I'm especially tickl-She shuts up with a QUICKNESS.
Internet's…different. Hard to explain…WHERE'S SHERRY WHEN YOU NEED HER?!
Internet…helps with music, though.
…Want to send Jon pictures of the outfits? I wonder if his phone works out there…
Hmph. Psychic powers suck sometimes. I'm gonna think of some really
catchy jingle and get it stuck in your head.Pictures!
Hmm… would it be more fun to wait for him to get home and surprise him, or make him squirm over it 'cause he has to wait to get a look at them with us in them…
Heck yeah I want to send him pictures.
…Internet's…Aaron looks around for LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE WHO CAN EXPLAIN INTERNET
…Can get music…off the internet…
HEY.A woman sitting behind the counter is pointing!
How old are you?
Oh, cool. Here are some forms.SHE OFFERS OVER A PACK OF FORMS.
What's your name kid? And why do you want to delve in the deeps, and surface levels in the case of like 3 of the existent dungeons?
>>420072She seems to have recognized the look.
Don't worry it's mostly just assorted protections, there are only like six questions that are actually relevant, but it's mostly just a lot of things that prevent us from taking advantage of Delvers, which I had put in just in case I ever get overthrown.
I'm Satsuki, by the way. Guild Master of the Dungeon Divers… I'm also the Mayor of Dramaville, but that's not as relevant here.
Eh? Usually people say I have very little presence… That's fine though, I guess that's a little different since I became the Mayor.She nods to herself at that.
Let me know if you have any questions.
That works.He'll fill out the form and it'll look something like this.
Name: Killua Zoldyck
Preferred Group Role: MAX DPS
Preferred Weapon Type: None
Preferred Armor Type: None
Preferred Group Size: Solo or 2
Special Resistances/Immunities: Poison, torture, etc
Can You Breathe Underwater: No
Most Advanced Dungeon Completed: Did them all already.
Anything Else You Think We Should Know: No
If you can't breathe underwater, how did you get to the Sunken Temple of Bel'Shamaroth?
Much less survive his many tentacles and four-dimensional attacks?
Hold on…She produces a map, and points to the barely visible marking a little to the southwest of 3G.
Riiiiight here. It's basically at the bottom of the sea and is full of stuff that is difficult to describe with words that mean anything.
Oh no it's been around basically forever… I mean, not really publicized since without some way to cheat death it's an actual deathtrap.
…don't take it as a challenge, the death count isn't high on it, but that's because of inaccessibility and I suspect there may be something in there that just erases stuff from ever existing.If this is a joke her delivery is horrible.
Alright…I did…Killua thinks.
The Happy Pony Fields, the grassy field, forest of magic and the cave of the killer bunny.
Oh right, I didn't do the tower. Heard that it's impossible to progress past a certain point and just never bothered.
No poison swamp either… Maybe the twins would be good to show you around that one…
It should be fine.
Oh, um, it's subjective really. I just don't want to deal with any dead kids.
I'll get going then.
Have a nice evening!
Are you still watching that show?Takes a seat next to Arado and sighs
You don't even like it.
Well…It started off good, but now it's kinda bad. I'm just watching hoping it gets good again.The episode ends a moment later. Arado will close his tablet.
So…How are you doing?
…Oh no…>>420098Quick as a whip, Seolla ducks under the table and pops up on the opposite side, now seated opposite Arado
F-forget it. Just…just act casual.
>>420102Arado raises an eyebrow.
Seolla. What's the mat->>420103And then this happens.
Huh?Arado turns his head to see who's greeting his girlfriend.
>>420103Her hairRightDammit! Well…at least she didn't do anything creepy with the banana…
H-hi, Dorothy…>>420104And she lowers her voice to whisper at Arado
Say anything weird and our next training drill is going to have live rounds in my rifle.
Ohhh, you must be Arado! Hi :D>>420105She's holding it in a very suggestive manner!
How's it going? It's been a while! Have you been doing heroic giant robot pilot stuff? :D
>>420106BITCH, I WILL…
Ah…Kinda. We'll probably be sortied next time there's an attack…>>420107OH MY GOD, THAT IS NOT ACTING NATURAL
This is Dorothy. She's a…well…
Yeah! I've been helping her out with some things~>>420108
Friendly lilim?FURTHER SMILING
Are you doing those exercises I showed you?
D-don't ask me that so easily! Those are embarrassing, you know!She isn't>>420110
NOTHING! NOTHING AT ALL!Blushing like the heat of the sun is upon her
Secret girl things~>>420111
Wh-what?! Sh-…You still can't ask things like that!>>420113
IT'S NOT LEWD, IT'S JUST NOT IMPORTANT!
Are you curious~?>>420114
They're just exercizes, Seolla~!
And the thigh one is really good cardio, too. That's important for humans!
Th-they're still embarrassing! Trying to…they're just…>>420116She probably wouldn't
And they improve flexibility :D
Oho? An adventurous type, huh?
Well, the important thing is to get into the right mindset~>>420120
Why don't you demonstrate, Seolla~?Pacifying Seolla by making her faint.
You heard her! I'd be glad to show you somewhere private, though!
…But I guess Seola has dibs :D
…Arado just looks at Seolla.
I thought it wasn't anything lewd. So what's the problem?
Unless she wants a group demonstration!
I can offer a special rate just for you two, since Seolla's a friend :D
>>420132>>420133Arado fall off his seat.
O-Ouch. That hurt.
And no! I'm not into that!
You should take the tastes of your partner into account, Seolla! That's important for a healthy relationship!
Mmm, well, violence isn't the answer, that's for sure!>>420138
You should work on your communication skills as well as your hip thrusts!
Pretty sure the delay was all on account of no one botherin' to pass on a message! I know you ain't the type to just ignore somethin' like this.'Cause Iowa is a good girl who has faith in her
Nah, ain't confidential, but maybe not something we wanna go shouting from the rooftops. It's about the Abyssals.
Well… I'm sure you read the reports. About how I was cut off from support for a spell by those smoke shells one of 'em fired off, Re we called 'er. Well, while we were in there, she had a little chat with me…Iowa turns in the bath and leans over the edge of it a little. Which just so happens to put her bazongas VERY on display. Good luck averting your eyes.
You have to understand, that's real
unusual from the get-go. Abyssals like her and shipgirls like me, you might say we don't get along very well. So the fact she had anything at all to say that wasn't some kind of threat or taunt is really strange
A chat?HE'S DOING HIS VERY BEST AAAAAAAA
So they shoot first and
second, then…I imagine she didn't just want to pull you aside for an afternoon chat.
Not at all. She told me something real interesting.
Apparently, they aren't working for HellFire because they want
