EC Session 8.10

Afternoon, Merch 3 Pyrday. //
The party has returned to the makeshift rebel headquarters for some much-needed recovery.
Almost as soon as they step in the door, the party is nearly blinded with healing magics.
ORN: "… Too white"
Potions and other effects form a second wave.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh man….The colors!"
Pak gack
The party is restored to within an inch of their lives.
Eric Lionheart: "Ack."
Bunnygirl: "ENOUGH!"
Pak dizzy.
The overeager healers back off at their commander's word.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you, but did it have to be so bright?"
Hector reflexively covered his eyes after the first burst, and has his arm still over his face.
Bunnygirl: "Sorry about that. We saw the fight, and some of them were worried."
Hector: "…is it safe?"
ORN: "This Group was nowhere near critically damaged"
Bunnygirl: "It's safe."
Sakha: "We can take care of ourselves you know."
ORN: "… Do you require new corridors?"
Hector moves his arm down and blinks. "Oh, okay. Whew. You guys really like to do that, don't you?"
Pak n.n;
Cassandra Lionheart: "Kind of over doing it, but it is all right."
Bunnygirl: "Now all that remains is to finish off the loyalists. We're corraling them into position for you, so you've got some time."
Cassandra Lionheart nods, and sits down.
Bunnygirl: "In the mean time, we've estabilshed radio contact with your friends down on the planet."
ORN nods
Bunnygirl: "Some of them had ideas we've put into…well, check the back."
ORN: "Elaborate?"
Cassandra Lionheart nods "Huh?"
Pak: "Huh?"
Pak looks around.
Pak: "Ideas?"
Said commander points to the back area, where the sleeping pods and replicators are.
Riia coughs
Riia signs: "Excellent"
ORN decides this main room could use a higher ceiling and slowly gets to work on sinking the floor.
Hector: "So I guess you had a conversation with a moogle who had a funny accent and called himself 'Kupostein'?"
Bunnygirl: "He was there too, yes."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Any Lionhearts?"
The Bunnygirl taps ORN on the shoulder. "We would appreciate it if you wouldn't do that here. You would appreciate it too."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Hector rubs his forehead. "I'm not sure if I should consider him a genius or a madman."
Riia snickers slightly.
Bunnygirl: "No, we didn't talk to a Lionheart. Why?"
[OOC] Hector: If you've noticed, Hector's speech has smoothed out. It's halfway-laziness, but let's handwave it as he's been exposed to knowledge and culture so he's picking up on more-advanced speech mannerisms.
Riia signs: "You'll have to explain to ORN why he wouldn't appreciate it…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Just wondering."
ORN finds his legs going numb.
[OOC] ORN: sorry, spag was ready
Bunnygirl: "You mean he doesn't know that if he tries to eat the floor, it eats back?"
ORN: "?"
ORN: "…"
ORN checks; same composition as those walls earlier?
Cassandra Lionheart: "No he did not…ORN!"
Pak hrm.
Same composition.
Bunnygirl: "He can eject and regrow his legs, right? Might be a good idea."
Cassandra Lionheart gets up and walks over to ORN, and bops him on the forehead.
ORN glares at the ground
Cassandra Lionheart: "You should have had some Mithril Ore BEFORE we left!"
The ground, lacking eyes, fails to glare back.
[OOC] Riia: Heh
ORN breaks off most of foot, smashes down with the stump and eats the insulting bits and pieces of ground
It might be just ORN's imagination, but ORN's audio receptors seem to pick up thousands of tiny "om nom nom noms" coming from the ground.
The ground eats the broken off foot, and stops if ORN does not proceed past the floor line.
ORN: "This floor will learn its place soon enough, just as the walls did"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN!!"
ORN: "?"
Hector: "…well, that'll keep him occupied for a few hours. Hey, Sakha, you wanna go spend some quality time in the sleep-pods?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't want to lose you now. Don't do anything harsh, please?"
*gives him the big puppy eyes look*
Sakha punches him. Wait, physical violence? That's new…
ORN shrugs
Hector takes her fist gently. "Aw, you gotta use that in a more constructive way."
Sakha glares ice darts at him this time.
Hector ducks. He's become quite good at this.
Pak n.n;
Pak: "Ehe…"
Hector: "It wouldn't kill you to just be genuinely-nice for a second, now would it?"
The ice darts turn around an home in on his butt.
[OOC] ORN: she'll be the one stuck having to warm it afterwards
Hector wasn't expecting that, but his Shell effect softens the blow quite well.
Sakha: "Hmph."
Cassandra Lionheart giggles.
Eric Lionheart smirks.
Pak: "You're silly!"
Pak heads over to Bunnygirl. "Hihi~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Its cute..But you guys have to do something like this.."
*walks over to Eric and whispers in his ear, then looks him in the face, and winks slyly at him*
Hector adjusts his hat in kind of a cool-hero way. "I'll forgive ya, don't worry." He pats her on the head.
[OOC] Riia: Smack her ass! Smack her ass!
[OOC] Riia: …..kidding, she'd kill ya for reals
Eric Lionheart blinks at Cassandra. "Erm…"
ORN looks over at the bunnygirl while shaking off a new foot
ORN: "What is your name or designation?"
Cassandra Lionheart pulls Eric into a dark corner and drives the point home.
Sakha blushes. "No one asked you to forgive me."
Hector: "I'm not doin' things at the request of others. I'm doing them 'cause I want to."
Eric Lionheart eeps at the pulling but doesn't resist.
Bunnygirl: "…?"
Riia shrugs
Riia signs: "Mating season, I guess"
Bunnygirl: "You have a season?"
ORN: "Every day is their season"
Riia shrugs again
Cassandra Lionheart peaks back out. "No not mating season…Quiet time."
ORN: "… … Many names. Same things."
Pak: "Do bunnygirls have seasons? c.c"
Riia signs: "Mating behavior of own species is bizarre enough, but this appears oddly synchronized…"
The Bunnygirl blushes. "A-anyway~. Your friends talked us through some designs."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, you guys though..we were going to."
*breaks out laughing* "No we are not..Actually we are going to discuss some plans."
Riia raises eyebrows
Pak: "Designs~?"
ORN: "It IS most intriguing and relaxing to observe the physical reactions caused by such happenings. It may be an enhanced addition to rest in this case."
The Bunnygirl looks to the back areas. "Bring their gear up here."
Cassandra Lionheart hears this "Gear?"
ORN: "… Anyways. The assimilation ability seems to have increased compared to the surface. This lends further credance that its exact core is Grav. Actual mass may require increase to overtake its control and reduce Grav's influence."
A minute later, a few Viera come forth, pushing a hovering tray with equipment piled on it. The reds and purples and lace leave little doubt who their designers were.
Riia perks up at this.
Riia perks down at this.
Pak oooh.
ORN: "What is your name, in any case?"
ORN: "… . ."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh..THIER items."
*looks at Eric "Got anything with red and purple?"
ORN: "… . ."
ORN: "This Unit hopes the black one still retains her sanity despite constant exposure to… this."
Bunnygirl: "That was the one ending most sentences with 'nyo'?"
Riia confirms.
Sakha: "It's a popular liguistic of young Mithra."
ORN: "If you refer to the forced grin and look of despair, you would be correct."
Riia signs: "Is requirement for her."
Ahiru: "I thought she was older than Sakha…"
Hector: "I wish their designs weren't such a horrible eyesore. We'll be the laughingstock of all the hero conventions."
Sakha gripes. "I didn't say that -I- was popular, now did I?"
ORN: "All members of This Group are likely well known, Sakha."
ORN: "This Unit would imagine word of one's cataclysmic ice storms would spread rather rapidly"
Sakha: "Well-known and popular are different things, ORN."
ORN: "… If well known and non-hostile, would you not therefore be popular by default?"
For Riia, a Coronet similar in style to - but differently colored than - Eric's. For Pak, a cloak that looks like it could fend off the reaper.
For Hector and Cassandra, pairs of crystal gauntlets exactly molded to their hand sizes. Same for ORN, though he recognizes the design as Zeus model.
Felicia and Ahiru likewise get handware, though theirs is more difficult to identify. (+3 STR/+3 AGI, respectively)
Eric can immediately identify his Tough Ring - and it looks like it was designed to go on his middle finger, specifically to avoid conflicting with engagement or wedding rings.
And for Sakha…lace and frills that look like they are meant to attach to her cloak.
Cassandra Lionheart looks at the Gauntlets and smiles.
Sakha: "…How impractical…"
ORN assimilates the structure, leaving any frill noir didn't have a chance to remove while packing out, and then putting it on ahiru.
Ahiru puts on the Gloves, they look very finely crafted with feather designs
Eric Lionheart hmms and picks up the Tough Ring, putting it on.
Pak looks over the pile of stuff.
Pak: "Ooh."
Pak hm. "This cloak goes… oh, like this?"
Pak heads off to change. His skin-tight outfit is tossed aside~
Cassandra Lionheart puts the gloves on and smiles "Nice."
Pak emerges, with just shorts on and the cape billowing about~
[OOC] Sakha: I'm going to treat this as me getting the auto-magic up feature I've forgotten from my 2part artifact armor >_>
[OOC] WC GM: That works.
[OOC] Hector: 178 EVA WOO!
Pak mwahahahaha~
[OOC] Pak: Pak now kinda looks like a Kitty-Laharl.
Hector takes his old gauntlets off and puts his new ones on. They lock into place on his armor with a satisfying *click*.
[OOC] Sakha: How does Hector have so much EVA?
[OOC] Hector: Shield.
[OOC] ORN: his d10 whip's a one hander so he has a shield
[OOC] ORN: plus I think accessory too; he's gone full EVA in most things hasn't he?
[OOC] Hector: I also have Str and Vit maxed at 25 so I've been slowly raising Agi/Spd.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Damn..139 for me..Oh well. :D
[OOC] WC GM: EVAtank has high EVA
Pak squirms a bit. "It's good to get out of that super-tight clothing. @_@"
[OOC] Hector: My MEva is 46, though.
Pak: "It was so sweaty and barely breathed at all."
[OOC] Hector: So not particularly good.
[OOC] Riia: Huh…I may need to see if there's a BDL part…
[OOC] Riia: I doubt it, but it'd be awesome.
Hector gives Pak a thumbs up. "Looking good, little bro. Like you're a…winged slayer of somethin'."
[OOC] Riia: As it is Manablaster is currently doing 7d8+744 damage…vs. 1/2 ARM.
Pak: ":3"
Pak brushes the cloak open. While it may not cling as much, it now shows off a lot more shota-leg and chest.
Riia tries the Coronet on. It seems to fit.
[OOC] Sakha: 68 EVA, 63MEva)
[OOC] Sakha: er 83
[OOC] Ahiru: 62/67
ORN glares at the floor some more
ORN breaks open rear stablisers, builds up a charge and grounds himself for great justice!
The floor continues to munch wherever ORN violates it.
ORN seems to be quite a bit shorter by now.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN! Stop it."
Ahiru frowns, transforms into Gaia and makes ORN some Lunch?
ORN hugs Ahiru
Ahiru smiles.
ORN munches a bit
ORN: "Ah, come to think of it… the other spirits"
Ahiru cocks her head and reverts to Ahiru. "Hm?"
ORN: "Several had not yet been communicated with… … summoned?"
Felicia winces. "I didn't get much sleep last night, thinking about what Bolt said…"
Eric Lionheart: "Perhaps seeing the others would be a good idea."
Felicia then realizes it has not even been a full night - she does look tired, despite the healing.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
*then looks at Felicia* "What do you mean?"
The surrounding white mages take that as their cue to shower Felicia with healing magic again.
Felicia: "You can stop that."
They don't, yet.
Cassandra Lionheart: "True."
*looks down at the ground*
ORN: "What of bolt's words disturbed you?"
Felicia: "Well aside from the fact that he's responsible for this…"
She points to her crippled arm. "…Apparently he was the one who put me around with Hicks and Biggs and Wedge."
Pak is just hanging around with Bunnygirl.
Hector hugs Sakha. "Your Mignon-made thing looks good on you."
Cassandra Lionheart nods "Apparently, he though you would make a vessel also?"
ORN: "… Why not regrow it?"
Felicia: "It didn't sound like that—… People don't work like you, ORN."
Felicia bonks one of the mages. "Knock it off."
The mages finally stop.
ORN: "Nevertheless, there should be a reason why they do not work"
ORN points at the mages
Even the Bunnygirl rolls her eyes at the mages' overenthusiasm.
Pak is trying to show off his new cloak to Bunnygirl. "Hey, hey~ Do you like it~?"
[OOC] Ahiru: Stupid Dog
Felicia shrugs at ORN. "Nothing's ever worked. I've just come to live with it. Still just… weird."
Cassandra Lionheart looks to Felicia "Okay, but still. Maybe to he did it so you could watch over them? Be like a "mother" figure to them?"
ORN: "… … …"
Felicia: "…"
The Bunnygirl looks at Pak, evaluating.
ORN: "Would an overlay or replacement be preferable?"
Felicia: "From what he said, he did it to watch over me, not the other way around."
ORN: "… cessation of one's favorite structural functions seems a terrible way to protect said person"
Cassandra Lionheart nods "I misunderstood what was said. then he was worried you'd..well..fight him? Become more powerful?"
Sakha blushes and hmphs, but doesn't seem as disgruntled anymore at Hertors comment
Pak spins and shows it off.
Bunnygirl: "…I will not repeat her exact words, but a certain lady cautioned me very strongly against letting myself or anyone else here give in to certain urges regarding you, Pak."
Pak: "… ._."
Pak pout.
ORN: "… Was it Sakha?"
Sakha: "No."
Pak: "No, it was probably Fyl c_c"
Pak huffs~ "She's getting so possessiiiive.~"
Pak: "Ah well."
Cassandra Lionheart laughs.
Hector lets go of Sakha and then hugs Pak. "Hey, she cares about you."
ORN: "… She will have to learn to cope with your existance, lest interspecies relations in Refuge find themselves deteriorating"
Pak squeak. >/‘`/``/>
Pak: "W-well, I know that…"
Sakha: "She just wants to have his first born."
Felicia snickers, followed by a yawn. "Well, I suppose we should see what the others have to say, anyway."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, we should."
Pak: "…Yeah, I hope she calms down after that. >/``/````/`>"
Pak snugs Bunnygirl’s arm. "After all, miss Bunny here's important to me too! I wanna spend time with her! :O I mean, you're the one who made me into the crazy type of thing that I am~"
ORN: "It would prove rather detrimental to the world if Pak were prevented from bringing nations together in bed"
Bunnygirl: "…I'm…fairly certain I only gave you the tools."
Pak: "What tools?"
ORN: "… Indeed"
Pak headtilt.
ORN nods
[OOC] Sakha: I just imagined that came out of a fortune cookie because it ended "in bed"
[OOC] ORN: ^^
Pak nyaa?
Bunnygirl: "The Aeons."
Pak: "…Those are really big tools."
ORN: "oh."
Pak: "Don't be so modest. <3'
Pak: "Besides, the Aeons are free now, and I still have magical power within my body."
Bunnygirl: "They remain bound to you, in a fashion."
Pak: "I suppose."
Pak: "But that's your doing! :O"
ORN: "Improved communication methods will be required with them, as with any future spirits"
Pak: "Yeah."
Pak snugsnug. "Really, you helped out a lot~"
The Bunnygirl blushes, not returning Pak's hug, but he is clearly getting to her.
Bunnygirl: "Aaa…aheh, uhh…umm…"
She gulps, looking to the side. "What's the progress onnn those loyalists?"
Pak has 98 seduction. Nearly irresistable.
Pak: "Huh? Oh, are they still running around?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes they are."
Her staff are clearly amused at her plight, but one girl turns and looks at the monitor. "They're in sector Alpha - sector Bravo - they just ran over Romeo!"
The Bunnygirl blinks. "Sector Romeo is on the other side. How'd they get there so fast?"
Pak: "…A teleporter?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thy burrowed under ground?"
[OOC] Riia: With an Ammo Dispenser next to it, no doubt
Viera: "No, they *ran* *over* Romeo."
She calls up a picture of a room with two slowly-sealing holes blasted in it. Some Viera in varying states of undress are scattered around, blinking in surprised confusion. In the center is one Viera, naked, face down, with many footprints on her back.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh…Ouch."
ORN: "…"
Bunnygirl: "…serves her right for making out when there's work to do."
Pak c_c;;;
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay..True."
Felicia coughs.
Bunnygirl: "Time to containment?"
Viera: "They're moving fast. Hard to say. Probably at least an hour, easily."
Pak: "Hm."
ORN: "… Do you require assistance?"
ORN: "This Group would gladly aid in their elimination, temporary as it may prove"
The Bunnygirl shakes her head. "No, no, you rest up while we do this. You'll want to be at full strength when we finally do contain them."
Pak: "Kay."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Pak yaaawns.
ORN shrugs
ORN: "Very well"
Pak: "Maybe I'll take a nap in my pod."
Cassandra Lionheart nods, and sighs.
Riia sighs
[OOC] Riia: <.<>.>
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: ^^;
[OOC] WC GM: So - Ahiru was going to call out the other spirits, right?
Ahiru is not sure who to call…
Hector: "Well, let's go down the list of who we HAVE talked to."
Hector: "Bolt, Gaia, Plu, and Min, right?"
[OOC] WC GM: "Who ya gonna call?"
Pak continues snuggling.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: easy..
ORN: "Bolt. Milf. Gaia. Plu. Min. Leaving Pyr, Aer, Chilla, Mer"
The Bunnygirl sweatdrops, trying to ignore the hot Mithra boy on her arm and not succeeding too well.
Viera: "Ma'am? We won't tell if you need to."
The Bunnygirl sweatdrops more.
Sakha: "We didn't talk to Milf…"
Cassandra Lionheart looks to Ahiru. "Can we talk to Pyr?"
ORN: "This Group will observe but say nothing, and in fact continue its conversation."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Milf was summoned. >.>
Felicia: "Technically we don't talk to any of them, Ahiru does."
ORN look at Felicia
[OOC] Riia: Was she?
Pak huh~?
Ahiru summons out Pyr.
[OOC] WC GM: Milf, then Gaia, then Plu/Min, then Bolt, was last time.
[OOC] Felicia: Word
ORN: "This being part of the problem. The point must be made that the spirits MUST learn to communicate with others, lest a repeat occur once more, and lest they become potential puppets of any taking Ahiru hostage or damaging her. Or… perhaps even, of Ahiru herself."
The Bunnygirl shrugs, twists her arm, and cuddles Pak fiercely on her lap.
A miniature Pyrtyr-alike with fire for hair appears in front of Ahiru.
Ahiru: "Hello."
Pak :squeek~
Pak is fiercely cuddled.
Pyr: "Hiya!"
[OOC] Ahiru: Complete with Karate moves?
ORN: "How does this one detect others, and can this one communicate, this time?"
The Bunnygirl squeezes Pak like some in other worlds might squeeze a teddy bear.
[OOC] Hector: Pyr is Mr. Champloo?
Pyr bows to Ahiru.
Pak ooof.
[OOC] Pak: Yes.
Ahiru: "How do you see this room, Pyr?"
Pyr looks around. "I see…sources of heat." Pyr begins pointing - pointing out people and active machinery in no apparent order except location.
Pyr: "Lots of sources. Some moving. Some not."
ORN: "… Does he understand the individuality of some of these sources, and wish to communicate ideas?"
ORN: "… How would a heat source best communicate with him?"
Hector wonders idly if Sakha counts as a heat source or cold source.
Ahiru: "Can you tell any difference besides staying still or not?"
Hector figures that it probably depends on how close he is to her, so he slides over to her in a subtle, not-touching sort of way.
Pyr's finger indicates Sakha just then, signalling that she has some warmth.
Pyr: "Shapes. A lot of them have four things sticking out of them - that one has seven."
Pyr points to Bunnygirl and Pak.
[OOC] Sakha: Course /i'm not a /yukionna/
ORN: "That is two individual heat sources in close proximity of eachother."
A quick glance confirms - four legs, one Pak-tail, and Pak's arms, with the Bunnygirl's arms wrapped around Pak.
Pak mmmph. @_@
ORN: "This is a problem…"
[OOC] Hector: Sapphire. <3
Pyr: "Some are hotter than others."
[OOC] Hector: I like kuuderes, too, like Naoto and Tear.
[OOC] ORN: rozalin's cuter tho
[OOC] Hector: My friend seems to like Rozalin the most out of the Disgaea girls, too.
Ahiru cocks her head to the side. "What do you do Pyr?"
ORN: "… Ahiru, do you think it possible to explain that these forms are also capable of communicating with him, and could share information?"
[OOC] Hector: Katina Jenet Merces, from Saiai's game, was partially-based on her.
Pyr: "What do you mean, Mama?"
[OOC] Hector: with a heavy dose of Katina's personality. :E
Ahiru: "Well you are you. You see Heat. What is your purpose? Your Goal?"
Pyr blinks, thinking about it.
Pyr: "…oh! I wanna help Mama, of course!"
[OOC] ORN: priere was nice
[OOC] Hector: Prier is a mix of Hartman Hips and Boobs of Steel. And she's a tsundere towards Colette and possibly Croix.
[OOC] Hector: …not Colette. Culotte.
[OOC] ORN: got some lightning and flickering here, might drop off if it gives out
Ahiru: "How would Pyr do that?"
Pyr shrugs. "Dunno. How does Mama need help?"
Pak wriggles. 2_@
The Bunnygirl is not letting go just yet. She seems to enjoy Pak's wriggling, even.
Pak gives in.
Ahiru: "It would help if you could understand and respond to the sounds coming from the heat sources maybe?"
Pyr cocks his head. "…sounds?"
Sakha: "I don't think he'll do it."
Ahiru: "Like that one."
ORN: "variances in the travel medium of the heat."
Pyr blinks. "Like…what?"
Pak: "…Wait."
Pak: "Are there any spirits that can do sound?"
ORN: "hm… Perhaps an alternative method can be developped."
Pak: "…Aer! Try Aer once you're done with Pyr."
Ahiru: "Well then, can Pyr tell Mama a story about being Pyr?"
[OOC] ORN: morse with an arc-welder would probably do the trick for him but that's more sakha's domain, what with all the words
Pyr: "Hmm…? Can try."
Sakha thinks herself.
Pyr clasps his hands and seems to meditate.
Pyr: "Remember…tried control fire. Large place. Cave, maybe? Liquid me on most of the floor. People didn't want to enter me - couldn't live if did."
Ahiru: "Was Pyr… lonely?"
Pyr: "They used me. I used them. But then they wanted to burn it all."
Hector puts his hands in his pockets. "Y'know, this is actually pretty interesting."
Pyr: "…kinda. People only on my face. Deep inside, only had Gaia for company, and Gaia was always busy."
Pyr: "But that was alright."
Ahiru: "But Pyr made people who were like Pyr to live with Pyr."
ORN: "… … Perhaps the next series could be modified to allow interfacing with Pyr in these depths for company."
Pyr: "Kinda! Not really made? Just used."
ORN: "This would alleviate the need for modified innocents."
Sakha uses magic fire to write 'Elvaan' in the air.
Pyr: "People were already there. But boring! Pyr made them have fun!"
Pyr's head snaps up, looking at Sakha's word. "Yeah! That was their name!"
Pyr: "Anyway. Pyr made them have fun - but too much. They were going to burn out! So Pyr tried to control their fire."
Pyr: "Can't live without fuel."
Sakha makes it change to say 'Sakha' with an arrow pointing at her.
ORN: "Ah!"
[OOC] Riia: Yay for ORN, non-Ahiru communicating with a Spirit
Pyr blinks, then leans closer to Ahiru and tries to conspiratorially whisper, with about as much success as Milf had. "That fire source is acting funny."
ORN: "This is good"
Ahiru: "It's being controlled by the one it's pointing to."
Ahiru: "That heat source is trying to talk to you."
Pyr: "…"
Ahiru: "It is called Sakha."
ORN: "This way he may learn that many heat sources would be glad to keep him company, if he is willing to understand them. Same with other spirits."
Pyr scrambles and hides behind Ahiru, using her to shield from Sakha.
Pyr carefully peeks out around Ahiru.
ORN: "… He may need to learn friendly designations"
Sakha flamewrites. "Hello."
Pyr scrunches up his face. "There's a lot of Chilla in her. Bleh! Chilla cooties!"
Cassandra Lionheart giggles.
Pyr: "And not real Chilla, either. Just…kinda…umm, ghost Chilla? Stuff that could be Chilla?"
Sakha tries a different approach and makes the heat come out with the sound of Cassandra's voice.
Hector wonders if everyone has a bit of a particular element in them. He's probably a mix of Bolt and Pyr, considering his HOTBLOOD and shocking whip.
Sakha: "Say something Cassie."
ORN tries heating 'hello' on his surface with some arcing, to see if heat in general or only "fire" works
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um..Pyr..Heelo."
Pyr looks at ORN, having noticed, and scrambles behind Ahiru again.
Pak wiggle.
Cassandra Lionheart has a sadness to her voice as she says it.
Riia snickers.
Ahiru points at Cassandra. "Can you notice anything form that heat source?"
Pyr: "The heat sources are being wierd and scary, Mama! Can Pyr go back to sleep now?"
Ahiru: "Why is Pyr scared?"
Pyr looks at Cassandra and shakes his head.
Pyr: "'Cause. Those heat sources are being wierd and scary!"
Pyr: "Like…like they wanna be Mama or something."
Ahiru: "Why is it scary for you?"
ORN: "Please tell him the heat sources are only attempting to introduce themselves and be friendly. So as to ensure he does not lack company"
Hector pushes his hat down. "Somehow, I don't blame him."
Pyr: "But only Mama is Mama!"
ORN: ".. This Unit has no real wish of becoming a duck"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pyr..There is no need to be afraid of me. Please. And no, i do not want to be like mama..I want to just say..Sorry."
Ahiru: "The heat sources want to be friendly. If you notice them you don't have to be lonely. Like your elvaan."
Pyr does not seem to react further to Cassandra.
Pyr: "…huh?"
Cassandra Lionheart looks down "I am sorry to have scared you."
Ahiru: "They want to talk to you and tell you things.
Ahiru: "You don't have to listen, but they'd like to know that you heard them."
Pyr: "Well…I've seen that one and that one."
Pyr points to Sakha and ORN.
Cassandra Lionheart begins to tear up a bit.
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra: Awareness.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 34 for a total of 34
[OOC] ORN: he probably sees what sakha translates you with as sakha's speech; not hearing sound
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 66
Cassandra realizes that Pyr is not scared of her - he's barely even noticed her.
[OOC] WC GM: Yep
Cassandra Lionheart stops crying a bit, but saddened.
ORN burns out "Not 'Mama'. Friend. One of many."
[OOC] WC GM: He sees where the fire is coming from, but not what else triggers it.
Pyr blinks at ORN.
Pyr: "Mama…can…can that heat source hear me?"
Felicia flicks one of her nails, igniting it at the tip. She writes out "Yes.".
Felicia: "Seeing as we're starting to make some progress…"
ORN burns out a bit more: "Yes, though not all sources can speak back."
Pyr grows wide-eyed. "Can…can they SEE me?"
ORN changes arm after a few words
Pak: "…>_>;"
Ahiru: "Yes, they can."
Pyr grows beet red, leaps up, and tries to bury himself in Ahiru's back.
Pak squirms down into Bunnygirl's lap, as if trying to make himself less visible to Pyr.
Pyr eventually, nervously, sneaks a quick peek around the side, then yanks back behind Ahiru.
ORN gives it one more: "None are alone, including you, but you cannot be understood if you remain hidden"
ORN then jettisons some of his slag and gives it a rest for a bit
Ahiru: "Sometimes you should listen to others, and sometimes you shouldn't. Is Pyr afraid of not being able to tell the difference?"
Pyr: "Remember…first thing…people told what to do…hurt many people didn't want to…"
Hector isn't really moving around much. He doesn't want to spook Pyr any more than he already is. Poor little elemental spirit.
Pyr: "S-s-scaaary…"
Pyr: "Couldn't even make 'em nonpeople, take away their hurt."
Pak: "Aw, he's freaking out now too. :x"
Pak: "You should let him rest, Ahiru."
Riia gets a mental PING
Riia signs to Ahiru: "….knows what people are."
Ahiru kisses Pyr and tells him good night.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Poor Pyr."
Pyr vanishes.
Riia signs to Ahiru: "Said people told what to do - how?"
Felicia: "Mmm."
She blows out her finger.
Ahiru: "Probably the same way. Creating their own fire, their own heat and he was pulled along for the ride
Riia shakes her head.
Riia signs: "Was firing of the Volcannon."
Riia signs: "Remember? When Volcannon made, Spirits were made to help run it."
ORN: "Thus leading to the current state of affairs."
Riia shrugs and nods.
Riia signs: "Sure. Anyway, back then, they were able to tell Pyr what to do. He regretted it after…but he was capable of and willing to listen."
ORN: "Pyr was shown to be the most reason-capable one in all our travels"
Hector: "Hm."
Sakha: "No Pyrtyr had to hold the inner Pyr back."
Ahiru summons Aerie.
A miniature Aerie appears with a musical laugh - and not gentle music, either. (Think rock and roll.)
She surveys the scene, holding her arms up - from the dust, you can vaguely see that she is gathering a wind-sword bigger than ORN.
Aer grabs it in a reverse grip and leaps straight at Hector!
ORN gets in between
Hector: "What the!"
Hector attempts to dive out of the way.
Sakha makes an icewall.
Felicia: "…Uhh."
Aer stabs with all her strength - for 0 damage, the sword (which was just air) disentigrating on impact, tickling ORN gently. She leaps off from there towards Felicia.
Felicia: "…"
Felicia just stands there.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Whoa..think Aer is angry?"
ORN: "Ineffective. But nevertheless hostile"
Eric Lionheart: "Just a little."
Ahiru: "What was that Aer?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "A little?"
Hector furrows his brow and adjusts his hat.
[OOC] Pak: brb
Aer lands on Felicia in a huge gust of wind - barely budging Felicia. She pouts, then dives at Sakha.
Riia raises an eyebrow.
Sakha makes an Ice Cage for the littlle bugger.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I got an idea."
Eric Lionheart: "Well, Aer's not very effective at least…"
Aer passes through the walls like they were not there. The Bunnygirl holds Pak out to intercept Aer.
Cassandra Lionheart point at Aer "Come and get me."
Felicia: "At least this one clearly sees us, apparently."
Ahiru: "AER STOP."
Aer pauses between Pak's legs and blows all around, sending Pak's cape fluttering in the wind, giving most of those present a good view of his assets.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN: "This was its plan all along"
[OOC] Riia: As if they hadn't seen them already.
After that, Aer settles down to the ground, giggling. "Hi Mama~!"
Eric Lionheart: "I think she just wanted to play."
Cassandra Lionheart looks at Pak, and shrugs.
Ahiru: "What was that Aer?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahhh. Well Aer, was always fiesty. Aer? Can you see me?"
Aer: "Stretchin' my legs, Mama~!"
Aer: "'Ey, Mama, mind if I respond to those voices?"
Pak C_C;
Ahiru: "And the reason you dived at the solids was…?"
Ahiru: "You can."
Pak: "Ah, I was right!"
Aer: "'Cause! That's what I do!"
Pak: "Aer can hear us!"
ORN: "Of course, given her composition"
Pak …squirms. "Can you put me down now, miss Bunnygirl? n.n;"
Eric Lionheart: "That's a improvement over the other spirits…"
Aer: "Of course I can hear you."
ORN: "… Its temperment, however, is not."
The Bunnygirl pouts a bit, but releases Pak.
Pak lands in her lap.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN! Aer just was stretching!"
Pak just meant 'stop holding him up like a shield n.n;'
Pak cuddles.
Aer: "Gaia makes stuff. Pyr burns. Plu an' Min give the reasons why."
Aer: "I'm what's left when stuff's been destroyed."
ORN: "Pyr had much to say."
ORN: "And gaia can also be left. … As can Bolt, or even Grav."
Aer: "Ah-ah. Grind stuff up too much, blow it around a lot, an' it ain't Gaia nor Grav."
Aer: "An' Bolt - silly Bolt, tryin' t' make people who don't need me! Tee-hee~!"
ORN: "It IS to one's advantage to require less."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aer, everybody needs you."
*smiles at him*
[OOC] Ahiru: her
[OOC] WC GM: It's a moogle. So far as you know it's a her, but.
ORN: "And when its blown around and no longer Gaia nor Grav…"
[OOC] ORN: which is why there's gonna be taunting ;p
ORN bursts off a Reis Wind
[OOC] Hector: Also, Aerie was a yandere.
ORN: "It can also be This Unit."
Aer basks in ORN's wind.
ORN: "Or Hector after certain meals."
Sakha snrks at that.
Hector: "…you know, you don't need to say things like that."
Pak wiggle.
Aer: "An' t' think, they paired me with a girl who wanted to defend what existed."
Pak: "What about pheromones?"
The Bunnygirl has indeed resumed cuddling Pak, though less fiercely.
Pak squirm.
Aer: "Fairy moans? I think Milf said something about that once."
ORN: "In any case, one should be glad of efforts made to design models not requiring you for their existance. Otherwise there is little equality."
ORN: "Fairy Moans?"
Aer: "…"
ORN: "… what's a fairy?"
Felicia: "…"
ORN: "And is their moaning caused by similar methods to other beings?"
Aer shrugs. "Dunno. And don't use hard words! You make my head hurt!"
Sakha: "It was a mispronounciation."
Felicia: "Quite."
ORN: "Are you claiming "
what" is a difficult word?"
Pak sweatdrop.
Aer frowns, and blasts ORN with a gust of wind.
Ahiru: "Aer can choose to stop listening to anyone she wants."
ORN: "She could… But she worries of what others say. Or at the least is curious is she not?"
Hector is glad he's not saying anything.
Ahiru: "That's Aer's decision."
Some of the party might notice that half the Viera in the control room are not moving - looking at where Pak was being held up high, with uniform nosebleeds.
[OOC] ORN: she's a moogle made of red buttons. there be pressing ;p
Pak blink?
Pak c.c~
Cassandra Lionheart looks and laughs "Pak strikes again."
Aer: "So Mama! What can I destroy for you~?"
ORN: "His range has once again improved"
Hector: "…"
Hector: "He's brought more women to their knees than I have."
Cassandra Lionheart: "He has a talent for it."
ORN: "Consider it his destiny. His lower section was designed to bring your world together."
Hector sighs.
ORN: "He is similar to grav, except more tangible, non-hostile, and likely far more pleasurable to all involved."
Hector rubs his temples and sighs exasperatedly.
Eric Lionheart blinks.
ORN: "In any case is it not strongly in part by your own efforts that he has achieved such popularity?"
Hector: "I'm not really sure what's my influence and what's his natural appeal anymore."
Ahiru: "I just wanted to talk to you today, Aer. I don't know you that well and I wanted to know more."
Pak: "Don't worry Oniichan~"
Aer: "Aww, just talk? That's *borin'*. But a-kay!"
ORN: "Besides; Eric has done a fine job of providing Aerial destruction on his own. Far greater than that little blade."
ORN: "It will take far more for you to truly help her in that way"
Eric Lionheart: "She could have been holding back for all we know."
ORN: "That personality makes it unlikely."
Aer giggles. "They're talkin' 'bout me, Mama~!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aer maybe a bit energenic, but its in a cute way."
Aer: "'Ey, Mama! Wanna hear a secret?"
Pak squirms a little. Turns in lap to face Bunnygirl and cuddles.
ORN: "A little breeze, with dreams of grand destruction. This Unit was similar in some respects, so very long ago"
The Bunnygirl just seems to be holding Pak, her attention elsewhere.
Pak hm?
Ahiru: "Ok"
Pak tries to see what she's looking at.
Aer: "Pyr, Bolt, Chilla, Mer, an' Gaia - they all went with Min fer one type a' magic. I went with Plu fer th' other type - figured they'd want to heal an' rebuild somethin' after usin' me to destroy everythin'."
Aer: "I…think?"
Aer blinks. "Hard t' remember…it was a long long long time ago."
Aer: "Liiike…"
Aer holds her arms out. "More than THIS long ago!"
[OOC] Hector: Alright, guys.
[OOC] Hector: I gotta split. I'm leaving in five minutes.
Bunnygirl is just staring out into the distance, listening.
[OOC] WC GM: K, see ya.
[OOC] ORN: g'luck, later dude
[OOC] Riia: Later
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: bye
ORN leans in closer to Aer
Ahiru: "So you like Plu?"
ORN: "Those that favor you most have indeed dedicated themselves to total annihilation."
Aer giggles. "She's funny an' silly! All, stuff should be fer the good an' all! Oh, an' Milf went with the others too."
Aer: "I think they said somethin' 'bout her bein' an influenza on me."
Ahiru: "Well you seem to have her light personality.
Aer giggles and blushes.
Bunnygirl: "…she…remembers…THAT?!?!?"
Sakha: "That explains why Aer magic is the only one other than Plu's practiced by White mages. ORN, pay attention. THIS is White Magic. Aer is a perfect example. White magic is what you felt when Aer hit you."
Bunnygirl: "The assignment of elements to the types of magic - how old is magic on your world, or do you know?"
ORN: "Oh This Unit understood PERFECTLY"
ORN sparkles a little
ORN: "The attitude gave it away right from the start"
ORN looks over at Eric and sparkles some more
Aer: "Oh, yeah! Earlier, I was jus' bein' how Plu wanted me t' be! Wasn' really tryin' t' destroy anythin'."
Sakha thinks about Bunnygirl's question,
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
[OOC] Sakha: History or Magic Check?
[OOC] Felicia: Knowleeeeedge
[OOC] WC GM: Yes. History more.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 41 for a total of 41
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 28 for a total of 28
[OOC] Felicia: Likewise
Sakha: "We've had magic since long before the Volcannon incident. But the exact timeline is unknown because Bolt tried to hide it."
Felicia: "Mmm."
Felicia: "Plus records from before then aren't very complete, for obvious reasons."
ORN: "… If magic is an integral part of civilisation, it stands to reason it may not be much younger or older than such."
ORN: "Its understanding and development would rapidly lead to rule structures stemmed from its own system of usage. Or, it would have been shaped and developped by those finally given the chance to study together"
ORN: "Much as the development of interspecies mating likely led to multiple population explosions, and perhaps a way for the races to remain themselves using the other parties to jump-start the crafting process"
Bunnygirl: "More like, white and black magic were imposed on your world."
ORN: "Then what was magic's "
color" before then?"
ORN: "Though the entire idea of such separation still seems wrong: Sakha is far more efficient than most encountered casters for example"
The Bunnygirl shrugs. "I don't know if it had one."
ORN: "The separation appears more arbitrary than anything."
Pak >_>
Pak: "Well, my magic is all mixed up too."
Bunnygirl: "If you mean artificial - it was."
Felicia: "…And mine encompasses all of them."
Bunnygirl: "Chilla - I hope it's reverted to that by now - might have more answers."
ORN: "If you mean the mindless berserker, its dead and assimilated by Ahiru's necklace, yes."
Ahiru: "I'll be sure to call you to spread the dust, Aer. Night Night."
Pak wiggle.
Aer vanishes.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aww."
ORN stares some more at Eric
Eric Lionheart stares back.
ORN: "Never about destruction, eh?"
ORN looks back at Ahiru
ORN: "Which next?"
Ahiru: "Chilla I guess…"
Ahiru summons.
ORN: "… If Pyr is any indication this one may be attached to Sakha. However, as not originally from this world, it may prove another annoyance"
A humanoid ice crystal of similar shape to the other spirits appears. "OnLiNe." Its voice sounds mechanical, and echoes a bit.
[OOC] Felicia: oh boy, WC gets to type in alternating caps
Ahiru: "Hello Chilla, how are you?"
Pak blink.
Chilla: "StAtUs NoMiNaL."
ORN: "…"
Pak snrks.
[OOC] Pak: ORN: Do I really sound like that? ;.;
[OOC] ORN: more "bah, just a little kid. I'm WAY more mature"
[OOC] WC GM: His voice is breaking or something? :P
[OOC] WC GM: Also, it'd be ;;.;; for ORN, no?
Ahiru: "Chilla, describe this room please."
[OOC] Pak: oh yeah
[OOC] ORN: "I haven't talked like that in over a year!
[OOC] ORN: yup
Chilla: "PrOcEsSiNg…"
Chilla: "A cOmMaNd CeNtEr FoR vIeRa SeCuRiTy OpErAtIoNs."
ORN: "His memory is moderately intact then"
Bunnygirl: "Which could be a problem."
ORN nods
ORN: "Do you understand external inputs other than Ahiru?"
Pak: "Hmm."
Ahiru: "Can Chilla identify with anything in this room, other than myself?"
Chilla: "AfFiRmAtIvE. ChIlLa CaN iDeNtIfY wItH cHiLlA."
Ahiru: "But nothing else then?"
Chilla does not seem to be responding to ORN's question.
Pak: "Weird."
Chilla: "AdDiTiOnAl CrYsTaLlInE eNtItY lOcAtEd, BuT gAiA-aTtUnEd."
Sakha ices out "Hey"
Chilla: "DeTeCtEd SkIlLeD wIeLdEr Of ElEmEnT."
Sakha ices out "Hey"
Cassandra Lionheart waves.
ORN: "THAT is refering to you."
Sakha smiles.
ORN sparks out a bit to see if there's any reaction
Ahiru: "Can Chilla tell me about Grav?"
Chilla: "WiElDeR aPpRoPrIaTe MiLf-CoNfIgUrAtIoN tO bE cReAtOr Of MoRe."
Chilla: "AfFiRmAtIvE."
Chilla: "PlEaSe SpEcIfY iNqUiRy."
ORN: "The thought of Sakha producing more angry icy people that dislike Hector and This Unit is disturbing to say the least"
Ahiru: "What does Grav want to do?"
Chilla: "DeStRoY. cOnSuMe. ExPaNd."
Eric Lionheart: "Sounds about right."
ORN: "As has been attributed, indeed."
Chilla: "CrYsTaLlInE eNtItY aPpArEnTlY cReAtEd WiTh SiMiLaR gOaLs. ReCcOmMeNd DeStRuCtIoN."
ORN: "This Unit's Destruction is done for justice. Consumption and expansion are for the protection of, not made regardless of, all friendlies"
Pak >_>;
ORN: "Grav's functions are nothing but those of a flawed prototype."
ORN: "Grav consumes without purpose. Expands without compassion, and destroys without understanding"
ORN: "Do not mistake your old aquaintence for that meant to remove him »|«"
Pak: "Hm."
Chilla: "GrAv SaNiTy ImPaIrEd. DeStRuCtIoN oF oNe WoRlD aTtRiBuTaBlE."
Ahiru: "That is what Chilla wants?"
ORN: "Grav has destroyed more than just one world."
Chiila: "ChIlLa WaNtS tO hElP mAmA."
Chiila: "ChIlLa PuRgEd ShH'cK wItH mAmA's HeLp."
Chiila: "ShH'cK cReAtEd WoRlD yEtIs FlEd FrOm. WaNtEd CrEaTe NeW iDeNtIcAl WoRlD."
Bunnygirl: "…what."
ORN turns to Bunnygirl
ORN: "The invasion and crash. The effects of the impact and terraforming would create similar conditions as well as annihilate all friendly life. The general goal of hostiles."
Pak: "Um…"
Bunnygirl: "I…the Yetis were fleeing from a world that was unable to sustain life."
Cassandra Lionheart shakes her head.
Bunnygirl: "Did he just say their god turned it into an iceball?"
Bunnygirl: "They brought it on themselves?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Sakha: "Yup."
ORN: "Would that truly be surprising?"
Eric Lionheart: "Not a very nice god then."
ORN: "What do yeti consume? Meat?"
Bunnygirl: "…it shouldn't be surprising."
ORN: "In such a cold environment, organics are scarce."
ORN: "A race attempting to acclimate an entire world to its own prefered climate could very well have doomed itself through the elimination of all potential consumables."
ORN: "They may very well have been fleeing exactly what they wished for after the fact."
Ahiru: "So then Grav actually isn't the one responsible…?"
ORN: "Given those This Unit has encountered, This Unit would certainly not put it beyond them."
ORN: "For the original escape. But this was already known, Ahiru. Grav was designed as the propulsion system for their exodus."
ORN: "Grav deteriorated during the travel, and combined with its creators wishes into a weapon, albeit one wielded by the incompetant brutish thoughts of the Yeti"
Ahiru: "I was asking Chilla."
ORN shrugs
ORN: "He speaks slowly."
Riia signs: "You are hypothesizing."
Riia signs: "Chilla has firsthand knowledge."
Chiila: "ApPeArEd MaMa CoNvErSiNg WiTh OtHeRs."
Riia signs: "Allow Chilla to speak, comment later."
Pak has sort of dozed off in Bunnygirllap
Chiila: "GrAv ReSpOnSiBlE fOr OnE wOrLd DeStRuCtIoN, sHh'Ck FoR aNoThEr."
Riia signs: "Deliberate?"
[OOC] Riia: More to Ahiru than Chiila
Chilla: "WhAt FuRtHeR aSsIsTaNcE pOsSiBlE aT tHiS tImE?"
Ahiru: "That's alright Chilla, Good Night."
[OOC] Riia: *needs to go, later all*
Cassandra Lionheart yawns "I'm beat."
[OOC] Pak: Yeah, it's gotten late
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yeah, I got to get ready for work. ><
Chilla vanishes. //
ORN: "… The hypothesis was correct. … It wasn't in any case thanks to previous library information"
[OOC] WC GM: We want to logend here, then?
[OOC] Sakha: yes
[OOC] ORN: eh, might as well. I could use a bite
[OOC] WC GM: 8 of 9 done, and not sure if you'll be calling Mer, so…
