A Moment of Peace....
....Or Should I Say, Ignorance....
*In a warm, quiet, and secluded corner booth towards the back of the bar, Hugh "VoidStar" Davis smiles as Ayanami Rei takes a seat next to him*
Hey....Kyuu-chan's asleep, I take it? *Smiles*
Rei: ^_^ Hai hai....*Scoots closer to him on the bench*
*Slips an arm around Rei's shoulders* Which means it's my turn next time, ne? *Chuckles*
Rei: ^_- Indeed. *Snuggles up against Hugh* But for now, we have a bit of time to ourselves.
Much-needed, too. ^_^ It's great to finally be apart from the various wars that spring up here now and then. o.O;;;
Rei: Heh heh....one of the fringe benefits of parenthood, m'love....we get left alone during fights.
Hai hai! ^_^ And we found this nice booth, too....you can't even hear the fighting outside from here.
Rei: No one can see us, either....*Kisses Hugh softly* Aishiteru, Hugh....
Mo aishiteru yo, Rei....*Wraps both arms around her and kisses her back*
Rei: *Giggles, embracing Hugh* We've gotta use this booth more often. *Kisses him again*
No arguments here!
*Ah, a nice romantic moment. ^_^ Now, you may ask, "What was the point?" Well, I the "ignorance" mentioned in the title abounds in this post--specifically, ignorance of the assassin chasing my insert....so this is sort of a "calm before the storm" post. Until next time, m'friends, I leave you with....Commentary by the Elementals!*
Seraphita: o.o Neeeee, Tolone-chan....I have a question....
Tolone: *Cringes* Yes? *Braces herself*
Seraphita: o.O;;; Well, Hugh and Rei are really strong, right?
Seraphita: So, ummm....why aren't they fighting the roaches and stuff?
Tolone: o_o Oh my God, Sera, you made a good point!
Seraphita: I did?! *Giggles happily* Wai wai! ^.^
Tolone: Yes, well, anyway. To answer your question, Sera, they should be helping with the fight. Logically speaking, anyway. Their powers would be very useful. However, they have a loophole. In a word, Kyuusaisha. While it's unlikely that either one of them would be seriously injured in a confrontation with the roaches, they're not willing to take that risk--for while the chance is small, it still exists. Thus, they will not fight unless absolutely necessary, because if one of them goes down in a fight, their child will have lost a parent while merely an infant. Understand?
Seraphita: O.o Ummmm....
Tolone: -_- Okay, fine. They won't fight 'cause they've got a kid. Understand now?
Seraphita: Hai! ^_^ Arigatou, Tolone-chan! *Huggles Tolone*
*And that's all for now!*
Alright, hereīs the story bit...
Johnny: Who *BLAM!* cares? *ZAPP!*
Oh well... As long as youīre having fun... ^.^
Roach: Whoooo!!! *BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA BUDDA!!!*
Still, seeing Roach turning his kin into organic junk is a bit off-putting... ^^;;
Prophet: Natural reaction.
Gagk! Xx;; Donīt scare me like that!
Prophet: So sorry.
How dīyou get here anyway?
Prophet: Remember that plothole?
Ah... hitchhiked in, eh?
Prophet: One could put it like that, yes.
Roach: TAKE THIS!!! *TCHAK TCHAK TCHAK TCHAK TCHAK!!!!*
Well, with that settled... Natural reaction?
Prophet: Precisely. Roach defected; now, he is considered a traitor by all other roaches. What is done to a traitor when caught?
Uhm... unpleasant things?
Prophet: Very unpleasant things.
Ah... I see... so he--
Prophet: Shoots each and every roach in sight. Yes, exactly.
Lyric: Ummm... _This_ counts as posting "tonight?"
Hmmm... Well, the sun ain't up quite yet, is it?
Lyric: That's as may be, but its time to type a little something up...
Hint taken, i roll, and you may roll too, Shoshanna...
[ SCENE: The Ever so Slightly Decimated Roach Battle Front Line ]
Egads, some people don't know the meaning of the word "overkill"...
Clone: Or know it all too well, as the case may be...
Voodoo: My kind of people! Greetings, you all, lets us smash some roaches!
Oh yes, it is quite the time to open a can...
Shiva: Lets see what i can do... Ummm... For justice and all that...
Well, we leave the Tank with Bub, along with strict instructions to make his presence known, shall we say, if it becomes needed (if we get kicked around overmuch. But these are roaches, we've fought 'em before, right?
Bub, you got that?
Rock on, rock directly on... Alright people, lets teach these roaches that EG City is not to be invaded!
Lyric: Wonderful battle cry, boss...
Clone: I'll shout it loud and clear "Lets teach 'em a _lesson_!"
Is that sarcasm _really_ needed?
Ask a stupid question...
Voodoo: Are we going to stand around yammering all day? They've almost surrounded us...
Shadowy figure on the rooftop: In the name of all that is good and decent, i come to the rescue, swing into action!
(*Amelia leaps from the building, flawlessly executing a masterful swan dive, directly into a potted plant, she stands, but the pot is _firmly_ wedged over her head*)
Clone: Snorrrtttttt-Haw-hahahahahahahahah! (*Falls over laughing*)
(*Sighs, and rolls eyes*) Somebody help her out of that thing...
Voodoo: (*Trying to hold back laughter, barely succeeding*) Amelia, hold _very_ still... (*Raises hammer, and strikes with accuracy, breaking the pot neatly in half*)
Amelia: Ahem... (*Shakes head to clear it*) Good will always triumph over Evil so says Amelia, i call upon the power of all that is good and pure... GENERIC BLUE BEAM OF _JUSTICE_!
(*A bright blue beam of light lances out of Amelia's outstreatched hand, spearing through the roach ranks, and nicely carving a path, right to the thick of the battle*)
Ahh, the middle of the firefight... right where i like it... Lets charge, Squad!
(*The Goon Squad charges into battle, unknowing of the threat that stalks Shinobi, even now...*)
Just a leeetle quicky afore the metaphor hits the fan... *Grin* My hat goes off to Chats, that's hella plotline m'friend, lemme tell ya. The climactic battle that's writing itself in my head is truely killer, i swah...
And yes, i _was_ going to write in a Lava/Raba bit at the end there... But that scene is for the "director's cut" Also, forthcoming is the "Director's Cut Re-release" of the original Gourry Duel... i figure its time.
A non-post related footnote: And the results are in, after intense "research" i have concluded my search for a zombie flick. Best "Serious" one: Dawn of the Dead... Non-Serious Evil Dead 2. And i mean that (*Grin*)
Now to get back to the update for the Page, oh wait, one quick thing:
Can _i_ see the Kefka imitation? i'll give you a dollar... Well, the _scan_ of a dollar... (*Smirk*)
Verity: Umn, Jelynne?
*Jelynne is sitting on the ground, still reading her book, and humming 'Carmen'*
Verity: Jelynne... *waves her hand past Jelynne's eyes*
What? I'm reading!
Verity: I thought you'd want to know that some of the roaches are marching in this direction.
Oh. That's bad. *closes the book and stands up*
Verity: They'll take a minute to get here. In the meantime, I have a few questions for you.
Is this important right now?
Verity: *consults some sort of data pad, and frowns worriedly* Oh, I'd definately say so.
Alright then. Ask away!
Verity: Can you control wormholes?
Not the last time I checked.
Not in the slightest.
Verity: Oh dear.
Are you going to tell me what's going on?
Verity: Well... *points up the street* The roaches are here.
Hey, don't change the subject!
Roach: Surrender now, and nobody gets hurt!
*deep, deep scorn* Idiot. You know that line never works.
Roach: It's traditional. Now we have to destroy you.
Yah, whatever. *shoves her book back into her shoulder bag, and starts rooting around in there
Roach: You're ignoring me! Nobody ignores me!
Verity, what do you want?
Verity: Have you still got that sword in there?
Lemme check... *various clanging and thumping noises come from the bag* Aha! There it is! *pulls out a pretty decent broadsword* Here ya go. *tosses the sword to Verity*
Verity: *catches the sword. As soon as she touches it, little lightning bolts of electricity start running along it* Ni-ice... *sweetly nasty smile* Being electric can be fun! Especially when your weapon-of-chioce is a super conductor!
*admiring the lightning bolts* That's kinda impressive.
Verity: Why, thank you. *dimples nicely*
Roach: Hello? Bad guy here, being ignored? Pay attention to me!
Now, what have I got for me? *continues ignoring the roaches as she digs through her bag*
Roach: *now has all four arms crossed, and tapping one foot* You realize you are violating the laws of villain/hero encounters here. Are you even listening to me?
*produces a can of ROACH-B-GONE, and reads the label* 'Caution: will not work on roaches'? Hmph! *tosses it away*
Roach: What do I have to do to get your attention?!?
I'm going to Anime North! Yay! *dances around* Maybe I'll see some of you there? *hopeful, puppy-dog eyes*
And, coz' I haven't done this yet...
