I am good with cats.This is what she's wearing. Was she wearing it before Travis came in? Probably not. She is now
Though I find that…perhaps I'm not as good at managing certain things as I would hope…I have come face-to-face with my thoughts of mortality lately. More…I was brought face-to-face with
What? Really?Travis is gonna try and take a seat near Lulu, raising an eyebrow in concern
I…huh.Travis is going to scooch a bit closer and attempt to hug Lulubell around the shoulder.
…I'm glad you realized that.
…yeah. Which is kinda silly, but still.
You didn't…You are a source of happiness for me, Mr. Touchdown. You are he who I have chosen as someone to give my heart to. But you were not a reason to live…Were
not. I…was not looking
for a reason to live. I had given up, as it were…I would assume you know why, but you are a buffoon, after all.Her voice is as flat as ever so it's hard to tell if she means that affectionately
Dwelling is all I was willing to do about it, Mr. Touchdown. That was my error. My folly.Leans a bit on this here TARVIS
Do not die, Mr. Touchdown. It is very unpleasant.
>>420491And Anubis is going to shake the cobwebs out of his head
…What…did you say?Meloetta remains obliviousMeloetta:
I…understand you…Anubis's features spread into a great big smile
I understand you! And you understand me?!Meloetta is so confused and shrugs from her marshmallowy hell
I don't…think so…Ah…I think, um…Points at Meloetta
I think she can't breathe.She can't
Ah! Melo!Meloetta is held up!
Are you alright! D:PREPARE FOR CPR
Ah, what a relief! I'm sorry, Melo!Melo gets a quick hug before Sanae relocates her to a shoulder! Then she speaks to Anubis!
Melo's a pokemon! Um…it's kind of hard to explain what that is…I wonder Travis has an original gameboy I could show you…
>>420499Meloetta will take this shoulder perching with grace and elegance. While also glaring daggers at this strange, gibberish-speaking molester
…Oh.He doesn't get it
I've…I've never been able to understand anyone here besides Bastet.
Ah…The blush returns! But Sanae maintains a smile this time!
Well…I'm glad! You seem like a really nice person! I'm sure if Kanako-sama and Suwako-sama were here, they would like you too!Bro they'd be demanding children already.
I juuuust made you new sheets!>White Mage
Yeah, but they suffer more if I'm too busy sleeping to make them. Once the quality starts to dip I take a nap at my desk!
Ah…I only met a few gods from other pantheons…lol Kamigami no Asobi
But not them.
Well, in my world if gods don't have any believers, they…die, I suppose is the word. Kanako-sama heard about Gensokyo, a place where youkai and gods and other things that can't live in the modern world could go…
…So we went! It was actually really fun! I met some really nice people and learned a lot about exterminating youkai :D
>>420510Mewtwo will likely smell them before he sees them, but Viola will be more or less pushing Erika along to the dungeon.
I know I know, I'm excited too. I just wanted to close my eyes for a bit under that tree…puuuush
Okay okay, I'm going…
Youkai are scary monsters that try to eat humans!
…Although not all of them are like that…
…I don't exterminate the good ones! Like miss Shameimaru. She's the crow tengu that brings the newspaper :D
>>420510Sabrina and Alakazam arrive shortly after, and whatever catty telepathic conversation they appear to be having stops as they wave to the others.
Ready to begin?>>420512She's accustomed enough to the smell to ignore it, thankfully. Watching her friend be carried along by her Pokemon gets a wry grin out of her.
Hopefully we can get you back in time to finish your nap.
>>420512This is true
Good tidings. Are you well this day? Aside from your…exhaustion.>>420516Mewtwo is having the HARDEST TIME making eye contact but he nods
As ever. This is something of a new experience for me, though. I will…try to keep myself in check.This isn't supposed to be a leisurely walk in the park for Erika and Sabrina, after all, and it would be if he took point
Oh I'm doing well.Viola will roll her beady eyes and wave away the exhaustion comment
always exhausted…Erika will yawwwwwn and stretch, and pat Viola>>420516
Oh I'm sure we will. There's always time for nap after all.She smiles! Viola will wave at Alakazam, since their both more or less their trainers main Pokemon they probably know each other pretty well
I'm definitely glad to hear that.Travis is gonna continue to HUG this girl close
So. Figure out any immediate plans for the future?
>>420518The avoidance is noted, and Sabrina becomes concerned. For the time being though, she snorts, and pats the head of her stuffy looking partner.
I appreciate that, but don't expect us to be pushovers.>>420519
Meditation comes in many forms, I suppose. It's nice to see you again.Alakazam visibly brightens a bit as he waves back. Other Pokemon have been a somewhat rare sight here, so he's especially happy to see one he's familiar with.
Cookie dough, or peanut butter chunk?Travis GRINS
And we talking John Wick 3, or 1917?BIGGER GRIN
>>420519Mewtwo smirks at Viola's comments
Well…do try not to nap in the dungeon.>>420526HE'S JUST BEING SHY
You need not worry about my perception of your strength. If I thought you were mere damsels, I would not be hanging back, as it were. I look forward to seeing you in action.The end of his sentence seems to hover in the air for a bit and Mewtwo seems to mentally retracts a bitYup, he's being shy and self-conscious
I thought you would have already seen the first two.He's gonna look over at her and also smile.
…You know, it's rare when I see you smile. You should try it a little more.
That's what I keep trying to tell people.She glances at Viola, then back
It's always nice to see you too Sabby~>>420530
Oh don't worry, Viola wouldn't let me if I tried.
Shall we begin?
:DViola is super ready!
I…whew.Travis is gonna use his free hand to mop his forehead. He wasn't ready for this!
Y-yeah. Uhm. John Wick. Oh and…uh…He's staaaaaaaring at Lulu right now, look like he's a bit flustered
Yeah! It's a TV show!
We'll watch it together with snacks and drinks :D
That sounds fun! Okay!
Coming from you, I'm quite honored to hear that.Sabrina catches onto his meekness soon enough, and while the temptation to bully him presents itself, she
barely resists it. She does subtly blow him a quick kiss, though.>>420540
Well, all things must be enjoyed in moderation, but…Her sheepish scolding peters off.
Yes, I think it would be a good time to start.
It's actually starting pretty soon…I should make popcorn!Shall we fade to WACKY DRAMAVILLE ANIME ANTICS?
If you don't mind my say so, you do indeed appear to be trying.Mewtwo looks to Viola and pauses for a moment
Please do your very best.>>420558It's super effectiveEven if she misses the subtle blush that results, she wouldn't miss the embarrassment (and joy) RADIATING off of him
Right. Let us proceed, then. I have…yet to be inside one of these places so this will be as much a new experience for me as it is the two of you.And in he goes. After they start, of course
Well most things in moderation~Girls and sleep aren't for moderation @:>>420561
We'll be fine, dear~Erika heads inside! Viola a few steps ahead, watching for DAMGER
>>420561Such power will be wielded responsibly in her handsProbably
Between the lot of us, I'm certain there's nothing that can't be overcome.>>420564
I'll have to trust your judgement on that.In the case of girls, Sabrina is in agreement. Following along behind her friend, she prepares herself mentally for what lies ahead.
What sort of thing should we be expecting in here, do you think?
Monsters. And not of a friendly variety.Mewtwo runs a hand along a nearby tree as they enter, wondering what sort of material he might be able to gather here
But as you said, we will be fine. I ask that you be aware, though, things here will not give up with a simple faint. According to a pamphlet I saw at the headquarters, it is kill or be killed.
We are prepared for that. They aren't thrilled about the idea, but they know the danger. And we need to learn to fight in that way in case of future invasions of the town.Viola nods!
Via Plume plu, Vialplume.It was this or hide when danger comes, and we don't want to do that.>>420566
From what I read it seems the creatures here range from Bandits, to Ogres to dangerious wild pok- err, animals. It seems like most of these 'animals' are what would qualify as 'normal' type back home. Deeper in I think their are more grass and poison creatures, as well as mushroom creatures that sounds like very angry parasects.
>>420484And now a little shake of her head! This one not nearly so miniscule.
N-no, you're fine. I just…mumble mumble going to have to pray for a week>>420504At this, Merilda bangs her hand on the table. Lightly, at least, just enough to make a light thump.
A nap at your desk is hardly sufficient. I grant you, you're simply wonderful at taking care of your craft if what I saw on the way in here last night is any indication… but clearly you're you're a mite more poorly at taking care of yourself
Can't you repair them ?
Or come up with some kind of cut resistant silk ?>>420570Zana lets out a sigh of relief !
Phew~ For a moment I was almost worried, I don't want to scare you away. Rather, I…She pauses for a moment and smiles at Merilda ! Though less smugly flirtatious, and more… Sincere.
For you, I think I might be willing to sacrifice certain things to keep you coming back, if you'd need me to.That would seem to be a compliment of the highest order.
Well the stuff is more important anyway. Besides maybe Lalafell function differently from humans with regard to need for sleep!They do not.>>420571
I can repair them but they won't look quite as nice… And that's not how material works! I could make sheets out of something cut resistant but they'd be less soft…
I mean, spider silk is pretty strong, but it's hard to get that in the quantity we'd need.
>>420571Merilda takes one look at this smile, and she can tell the difference in sincerity, and she just about melts on the spot.She reaches over and puts a hand on Zana's.
Don't change a thing. Not for my sake. You have a… strong
personality, but that's a good thing. It's just going to take a little getting used to.>>420573
Why do I doubt that's true?The skepticism is strong in this one!
… hmm… well, the magic forest has been known to contain giant spiders from time to time. Some of the adventurers guild hunters go after them to harvest giant spider silk and poison glands… I've had to cure quite a few of them of poison that the spiders offered in entirely the wrong way.Haha getting bit by giant spiders sucks.
We could always go there for one of our forays…Askance look at Ozma goes here.
As long as you're well rested beforehand.
>>420581Zana tries to suppress giddy excitement over Merilda's hand on hers, but ultimately ends up sandwiching Merilda's hand between her own and holding perhaps a little too tight.
I mean I'd rather not set you up for heartache if you'd prefer keeping me all to yourself, but…Enough words, Merilda can have another quick kiss right on her lips !>>420573And then to Ozma
… You need just as much sleep as I do.
Anyway, the magic forest sounds good to me, I'm sure we can gather up a bunch of giant spider silk in no time.
I'll be as rested as I need to be.She waves her hand dismissivly
Giant spider silk could work. Though it sounds like it could be a tough fight, my spells aren't that great at the best of times, and the fact that they're mostly poison based makes fighting poison creatures hard.
And Ms 'burn everything down' over here is likely to destroy the silk in combat if she's not careful…
How are your combat abilities?>>420583
Yeah but you also don't get much sleep, so I'm probably fine.
>>420583Oh god don't make the white mages heart burst.
W-well… a woman of the cloth isn't supposed to get… involved
anyways, so…Silenced by that quick kiss! Zana can probably read between the lines of that flimsy excuse anyways, though. Sleeping around isn't something that's going to upset her.>>420584Ozma is getting a DISAPPROVING STARE. It's very kinda motherly. Also a little bit of 'don't make me get a sleep potion from Jessamine.'
Well… before I took up white magic, I spent some time as a monk. I still remember a thing or two from that, so… I suppose decent enough.
We got plenty of sleep !
Eventually…>>420585Making Merilda melt !
Aha, that's great ! I'm glad you won't mind~Like an open book.
Still… You can get involved inside me anytime, anywhere you want.There's that flirtatious look again.
>>420585Don't mom me I'm a adult and allowed to make bad decisions @:
Huh, wasn't expecting a physical class. That'll probably be handy. >>420586
Yeah, strenuous exercise will do that.Ozma shrugs and then laughs
'Involved inside me'. Ahh, you have such a way with words.
Was it subtle enough ? I thought it was kind—>>420588
Oh no !Zana grabs the nearest magic book to cast 「Physick」 on Merilda !
Not against her? Not sure I follow what you mean, I wasn't planning to pit you against each other.>>420400
…I think I'm starting to get a handle on your relationship. At least to a point.
We're best buddies :DLappland's sardonic grin indicates that she is fully aware of how Texas feels about this statement.>>420594
Hmmm…maybe I'll still get a glimpse of the old Texas someday~
These hell guys seem pretty intense, y'know. You're not gonna be able to half-ass it :D
The "old" Texas?Gives Texas a bit of a glance
Would you rather I don't ask?
>>420595Texas doesn't react to Lappland's best buddies comment.Other than to light another cigarette.
… we'll see about that. I haven't crossed blades with any of them yet.
I suppose I'll have to.>>420596
I would insist.Have a stare. There's probably a hint of Natasha-esque danger in those eyes.
It's not my story, and she won't tell it. Sometimes it just kills ya inside!>>420597
Well, we better be on the same team when you do go all out! I wanna see it!
>>420597Steve could probably fold Texas in half. But he backs off because he's a GOOD BOY, hands raised in a pacifying gesture
Then I won't. Just as long as it doesn't become something that keeps you from protecting others.>>420599
Is there a chance of you not
being on the same team?
I'm not concerned with what you want to see, Lappland.Cold.>>420600Bitch you THINK.
It won't. You have my word on that.
I mean like in the same squad! Make Texas the leader!>>420601
I bet you're eager to let go underneath that cold exterior!
That's all I need.Yay>>420602
We're not really big enough for squads yet.
I guess…but when we have squads, Texas should lead one!Sage nodding!>>420604No Texas, don't take your pent up rage out on that poor doggo!
>>420604>>420605Steve takes a moment to actually think about what Lappland's saying before turning to Texas
Do you have much in the way of leadership experience? When we are
big enough to have squads, I could always use someone with those skills.
I mean I was trying
to be a little more subtle than saying she's one word from having me on my knees.Does that make it better ?>>420607Did that make it better ?
Are you sure ?
You seemed like you could use some help…
That's enough out of you.GLARE.>>420606
I… have some experience, yes. Beat.
I'm just tryin' ta get you a bigger paycheck! You're some kinda fancy box-slinging leader in Penguin Logistics, right~?
I would say those are of comparable suitableness.
Though please don't get on your knees in the kitchen.>>420607
For someone who screams as loud as you do, you sure are easily embarrassed.
That would be the more formal experience.Lappland knows what the INFORMAL experience is!>>420611
If the job needs doing, I'll do it.T A C I T U R N
You can count on that much.
Oh, right, right you were talking about your other,
much more exciting
Works for me. Glad I can count on you.>>420614
Leeeet's not start spilling stories that aren't ours to be spilled.
Why not ?
She could lean against the counter, or bend over it, or…>>420615Oh no don't die
Ah, sorry, sorry !
I didn't mean to embarrass you so much…
>>420625Dramaville has exactly one train station and it's set on the outside edge of town for travelling between Dramaville and SternbildExactly where is she walking to school from to pass over a train track and not notice itI suppose there are the tram cars and their rails but that's hardly a trainWait, I mean…
Hey! Watch out!Nagisa is gonna get the back of her jacket grabbed and she will be YANKED back away from this mysterious mid-city train!She's gonna find herself then accosted by THIS GUY.
You gotta watch where you're walking! You coulda got flattened!
>>420626STOP BULLYING ME, TRAMS AND TRAINS ARE SIMILAR
Eh?! EH?! EEEEEH?! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS, I ALMOST DIED!
In a really embarrassing way, too…Ah!She jumps back to her feet and bows repeatedly at Gentarou
Thank you so much! I'm so sorry for not looking where I was going!
What're you apoloogizin' to me for? It's your friends who woulda missed you, you know, it's them you ought to apologize to!Her friends, does he mean to imply he's not-
But seein' as this makes us friends now, apology accepted!Have a big ol' DOOFY ASS SMILE.
>>420629A lot of people might be worried when they hear they have some kind of reputation like that.
That's right!A lot of people aren't Kisaragi FUCKING Gentarou, and he is nothing if not proudly accepting of such a reputation.
The name's Kisaragi Gentarou!
Yeah, that's definitely that guy then!Oh no, she's completely freaked out, just look at the faces she's making, she wants nothing to do with a FUCKING WEIRDO like hi-oh never mind, she's smiling
Eheh…Funny way to meet you, though! I'm Misumi Nagisa! Thanks again for keeping me from getting hit!
>>420632Nagisa's going to STOP HIM OH NO
Wait…Hang on…I-I've heard that you do this, but…I'd kinda rather not…I don't know the steps.DERP
It's more meaningful if you know it before you just…you know, go for it, right?
>>420634Handshake DENIED. But not like someone doesn't want to do the patented Kisaragi Gentarou friendship handshake.
Oh. Well, that's easy then. We'll go through it once real slow like first.Out comes the hand AGAIN.
First you put 'er there.
Heck no! Why should it be weird to make new friends?
And then you just…Fist bump, pound, pound!
Just like that! The one and only official Kisaragi Gentarou friendship handshake!
You got that right! I mean, you don't gotta
introduce me if you don't want to, but it'd sure make things easier on me.
>>420618>>420622Ya both get catched in this because!
Ahem…!She composes herself as well as she can, eyes closed, appearing all prim and proper as she has a sip of her soup. Except for how RED her cheeks are. They practically glow!
But it's nothing I haven't had in my mouth.Thankfully, there's a clearly joking tone in her voice as she says that. Hygiene is important !>>420647Zana turns to Merilda with a smile and a certain lustful look in her eyes. One could easily tell that she's trying hard to resist the temptation to kiss the white mage in front of her. She mostly succeeds, but she can't help but let out a sultry giggle.
You're so adorable
What were we talking about ?
What you choose to put in your mouth is totally fine and up to you. I however do want most of those things on or near my sandwiches.>>420647
Right. Forest expedition, spider silk, all that.
Are there any other dungeons either of you has a particular interest in?
>>420648Man quit trying to make her cheeks do an imitation of one of Zana's Flare spells!
Um… dungeons, mainly…
… adorable? Really?>>420649
Well, not really. I don't have any vested interest in… well, any particular dungeon. Apart from none of the ones that are most likely to get us all killed.
Well, I do clean up too.>>420650
The way you get all flustered, and… The way you…Zana noShe cuts herself off, holding a hand up to cover her mouth while giving Merilda a coy look !
… You're special to me.
As long as you don't try to clean up by casting flare.>>420650
Yeah, I think we won't be doing that underwater… nightmare dimension one. Seems like a bad idea.
The wizard tower sounds like it'd be interesting, might find some neat magical things for potions or crafting. Though I think we'll need a fourth party member for that.
… special?Her heart just skipped a beat, pardon her.
I, erhm…>>420652Oh goodie, a chance to change the subject again! Ozma you're a hero.
Most certainly not that one, no. And someone else to bolster our numbers for certain if we're to climb that tower, yes, I think you're right.
Yeah, I was hopping we could locate a knight or something. Someone big and armored and good at annoying monsters. I'm sure the guild's got at least a few of those.
In the meantime I think the three of us can handle the forest well enough on our own. Between my potions and you two's white magic we should be able to deal with any of the weird fungus and poisons and such, and those seem to be the biggest threats of the area.
A tall man in a mask and ragged clothes.
I've already slain him once, but I've been told he has a penchant for coming back from the dead.Alice shakes her head !
We can't have that, the dead should rather stay dead.
>>420659GODDAMN MOTHERING PISSFUCK ZOMBIES
…Tell me about it…MILDLY TRIGGERED
I…have a history with zombies.
I am telling you about it.Alice is a master of the driest of dry humour.
I've killed him, and I intend to do it again until he stops returning to life.
As sure as I can be.Which admittedly isn't that sure.
I was told he came back by someone who seemed to know him quite well.
And yet not as bad as what I've dealt with in the past.
Nonetheless, should you see him, do not hesitate to kill him.
I can kill him, you mean. So a mask and ragged clothes…I'll put in a report. In the meantime, how've you been? Aside from hunting.
Well, I suppose it's either that or run.
He might fall if you separate his head from his spine.
Anyway, I've been quite fine, thank you. I found a friend who feeds on my nightmares.
>>420670Now she's getting a kick!A fairly gentle one.
Wake up! What're you doing napping here
of all places?
Uuuuugh…I DONT WANNA WAKE UPPPP
…Oh…it's HK…A pause before she answers the question…JUST long enough to avoid another kick.
…'cause there's always coffee here.
Then why are you sleeping
here? Why not go in and get some coffee?
Why else would you be hauling me to your room against my will?YAWN
…I guess I should scream or something.
I'm not hauling you back to my
room, I'm hauling you back to your
If you start screaming or do anything else to embarrass me, I'll feed you a 9mm from my sidearm.
I'm not going to ravish
you!Unfortunately, she shouted this as there was a side door opening from a staff meeting, and now G11 and HK are getting a lot of JUDGEMENTAL looks!HK starts contemplating whether to murder G11 now, or wait until later.
Shut up and go to sleep
already!Now DOUBLE TIMING it to the barracks!
you too rough if you don't can it already!Oh look, the barracks! And G11's room. Once inside, HK is going to unceremoniously dump G11 on the FLOOR.
…That was really mean…
I don't want to hear it!HK proceeds to… flop onto G11's bed and stuff her face in the pillow.
Guh… that was embarrassing…!
Good, I don't want you over here!Grumble grumble.
Next time, I'm just leaving you there for Kokonoe to… to make you into a space heater or something!
that!HK lifts up her head from the pillow and glares at G11. She's all red in the face.
What's gotten into
you today? I don't think it's my
buffer that's overflowing!
>>420704It's a fairly standard office layout. Only thing that really stands out is a ship in a bottle that says "MARINES" across the sail on a shelf behind his chair
No. I'm not "apparently" the chief. I am
the chief. The name's Smoker. Who are you, then?
We're all stuck here, that part's a given.Smoker studies Cassie for a bit before continuing
Defender of Earth Realm, huh? Big title there. Still, speaks volumes, doesn't it?
Usually there's ways outta realms, but this place is… not like the others I've been to.Cassie is in great shape, and seems fairly relaxed at the moment. She's probably a bit too young to be a Commander, but ya know… Killing a hell god gets your ranks up. She nods.
Long story about a fallen elder god, a bald jackass and bunch of demons. My squad and I were able to put a stop to 'em, and that's where that title comes from.
So this ain't your first rodeo into another world, huh? Well, good to know this one sticks out.Sigh
How old are ya, Cage?
No, travel between worlds was pretty normal back home. Not exactly open borders for vacationing, but enough that we were all aware of one another.She chews her gum @:
Yeah, my skin care routine is a bitch but it's worth it.She nods
Will do. Thanks, Chief.
I ain't your chief yet, kid.He takes a seat back at his desk, seeming to phase through it from one side to the other
'n one more thing. I run a straight ship here. Zero tolerance as far as crooked cops go. No one, not one person under my command gets away with takin' bribes, lookin' the other way, or hurtin' the innocent. I ain't sayin' you're about to, but I give everyone the same warning. Zero
tolerance. You understand?
They return when she's done, but she has given me a few good nights of sleep.
I suppose that's more than I can say I had before she came into my life.
Net gain, at least, from the sound of it. Still, heck of a thing to be able to eat…By the way, I should probably ask, do you…want
help with this undead guy?
Hm… well, there is one person I know. As skilled a knight as ever I've known. Perhaps I could pay him a visit and ask about him coming along… or we all could.She puts a finger to her chin.
… though his usual companion might be loathe to let him go without her… but I think Ozma is right, the forest shouldn't be too
much trouble, so long as we stay out of the deeper portions of it.
Yes, it would be much appreciated.
The more the merrier, right ? Is that how it goes ?
That's certainly how the saying goes. We've got some competent people on the force so hopefully we don't end up…you know, dead.Sighs
Anyway, I'll put a notice out for him. Scraggy clothes and a mask, you said? Anything else we should know about? Methods, hangouts, any information you can give at all? Besides unkillable.
Understood. Except for the part where one of the organizations is named Dude, and the Black Order is the name of a group of good guys.She shakes her head
But yeah, rescue and protect, don't punch giants. I'm pretty much trained in one-on-one kombat and skirmishes against other… vaguely human sized things anyway. Biggest thing I can fight with confidence is about 8 feet tall, so I'm alright leaving the gaints robots to other people who know what they're doing.
>>420655>>420717Zana shakes her head at Ozma !
… Ozma, casting white magic with a black staff is a recipe for disaster, and a summoning grimoire isn't focused on restorative magics at all.
I guess I could bring a rapier, but red magic isn't that strong in either direction. If I gotta bring a whole arsenal, who'll carry it ?
Well I've never ended up dead before, and look where that's gotten me. Some cats would even claim that I am an unmitigated disaster.Alice nods !
That's quite right. I found him out in the forest, and he would pick up anything he could use as a weapon.
>>420722I WILL DOUBLE YOUR WEIGHT IN LEADAND THEN QUARTER IT WITH A ROCKET>>420725
Cats?Remembers who she's talking to
Oh right, right, cats…So he's strong then. Probably won't just fall apart after a couple bullets then, huh?
Is his companion also a warrior?>>420724
Yeah but I got an arcanists grimour that you could probably use better than me if everything falls apart.
I mean I could probably bring my wagon but that may slow us down.
What about Dinner?
No, I don't think he would.
He didn't fall apart when I removed his guts from his body.
Yes, I can fully agree on that. My dear friend Bryda once tried to cast Bolt 4 through a white magic staff…Merilda clasps her hands together in a brief prayer. GUESS WHY.>>420728
Oh, no, she's… more of an alchemist…She looks to Zana.
… I dare say Zana would get along with her tremendously.
Well…as long as he doesn't pick up a rocket launcher or sprout tentacles, how bad can he be?
>>420730Zana looks horrified at Merilda's first comment !
… Oh no…>>420728
Dinner would make it everyone's problem.
Besides, he's gotta carry the loot.>_>
… And make it everyone's problem.And then, Merilda's last comment catches her interest !
Is she as incredible as you ?Smiiiiiiile.
He's rather strong as well, but I take it monsters like that have a tendency to be so.
Anyway, I reckon it's best to go directly for the head.
So she's another hyper sexual person?
… Someday I'll meet someone who's not that.>>420733
Right… I really should get a Chocobo of my own. I used to rent one a lot back home, but I never actually had my own.
The 'wrong' officer ?
Then it sounds to me like it might be best if we get to him sooner rather than later.
It certainly won't be enough to keep him from coming back.
We kill him, he gets better, and then we can do it all over again.
Come on then, the more time we waste the more people he'll murder in the meantime.Let's go HUNTING
H-how would I know!?Still trying to pretend to be chaste, isn't it cute?>>420736COUGH.
… ah… well, my friend Gylda has a chocobo. But it's the only one I've seen in this world…
You could get one that's not as unruly as Dinner.>>420741Positively ADORABLEAnd making Zana want to misbehave, she can't help but giggle at Merilda's reaction.
Aha, ah~… At this rate I might have to go back to bed after breakfast.Of course her eyes are practically screaming 'join me' as she looks at Merilda. Oh no
I'm as sure as I can be.
Would you rather wait for a report of a murder ?
I'd be hard pressed to find one that's as unruly as Dinner…>>420741
Well Zana's got Dinner. But yeah now that I think about it I haven't actually seen another one around…
Erm… well, if you exerted yourself that much, it may not be a bad idea…She's still on the fence though.
… wait, Dinner?>>420745
She named her chocobo Dinner?
Mhmm, maybe I'll even… Exert myself enough to sleep again.She's doing her best to resist all these temptations, even if only to give Merilda some breathing room.Then Zana nods !
Dinner. A name that rightfully strikes fear into his enemies.
No one messes with Dinner.
I assumed it was because he was your emergency rations… Well you learn something new every day.
>>420749Zana lightly bonks Ozma with the book she used earlier !
Despite all his flaws, I could never eat my lovely companion !>>420750
At least…She gives Merilda a tempting look and a horny smile !
Not him, and not in that
>>420753And passing by is some SCHMUCK who just wanted to get some fud. But he's distracted. By this OTHER SCHMUCK
Hah? What ain't good?I'mma bullshit and say that Arado was lookin' at a stuffed animal store. Because he's shopping for someone else, so it's possible, shut the fuck up. Anyway, Okuyasu takes a gander himself
Dumbass! Of course it isn't good! You're a guy, aren't ya?! Guys don't play with stuffed animals!
>>420754Arado looks at Okuyasu.
Y'know what…You're right. A guy shouldn't be buying stuffed animals for himse-
Wait! This isn't for me, you idiot!
>>420748>>420752Stupid sign @:
… Would anyone listen to a sign like that ?
If you ask me, it only makes me want to go further in.And they shall press on !
Well, considering that we have business here…But honestly, it's a good idea for anyone else
to leave as soon as they can.
I'll call you an idiot if you're acting like an idiot. Idiot!
Who are you anyway?
I mean sheep and pigs are pretty cute to. Doesn't mean they aren't tasty.>>420751bonked
Ahhh. It's not that far fetched…
Look, how'n the hell am I supposed to know it ain't for you?! You were just starin' in there sayin' it wasn't good! I'm Nijimura Okuyasu, s-…Uh…Counts on his hands
…Tenth grade student at Dramaville High!
It should be obvious! No guy would be caught dead buying one of those for himself!
…How many times did you flunk on your way there?
If they can slay the monster I'd rather they stay here, really.>>420763Alice is both smart and quite sane !
… Last time I was here, that cabin was left in ruins.hmmmm
>>420765Arado just raises an eyebrow.
Figured you were held back at least twice with how you had to count on your hands like that.
…You ever get the feeling you're being watched?Draws her pistol and holds it with PROPER TRIGGER DISCIPLINE>>420764
Well, yeah, but I'm guessing most people can't…Looks over at the cabin
Someone put it back together, apparently.
The name's Arado. PT Pilot for GGG.
And this is for my…mumbles
…D'ah, jeez, that's a good point…Hmm…There's a real simple solution to this
Well, it's not like you can just ask her…Getting colder
Maybe buy all of 'em?Freezing
Nah, that's just super expensive. Y'might need to just look fer somethin' else.Heat death of the universe
|Rolled 1d20: 19|
If you insist.>>420779We're sneaky beaky !
It is certainly a lot cleaner than last time.To be fair last time it was a ruin. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it.
Y-you've… oh…BLUSH IS BACK IN FULL FORCESo is the somewhat telltale shifting.>>420760
They're… different, though. They don't have the same personality that chocobos do.
Well then wadda you
