Liseth

She did in fact take a seat. Her mom and sister usually asked the same thing of her when they brushed her hair. It felt... kinda weird. But nice. "Ehhh. We'll see. My family never managed to do it, and you're not as annoying as they managed to be."





Suzuko

"Of course. We can arrange that right now." So she stood up and began to lead the other woman out of the room, giving the other two a nod as she made her way to the fridge. Suzuko pulled out an apple, neatly broke into halves, and plucked out a few seeds. She handed them to the other woman they reached the rather spacious balcony.





Grigori

Imbecile. What kind of foolishness was that? She would let Saber attack like a common brute for an excuse as asinine as that? She just sighed. "Disappointing." Then she focused her senses once more and watched the two fighters.

Her magic lashed out and began to create copies of the skeleton. They lacked physical substance but they still made sounds and their own false fires, and soon there were about fifty of them. For the most part they just swarmed around Brutae. More annoying than anything else all things considered.





Astarte

It didn't take too long before the Blood God had found himself on top of Joe's shoulders. Whether he liked it or not. "So, mister, what do you do for a living?"





Erica

She spared the other girl a single, cursory look. "There is a police station near here. If you wish to familiarize yourself with the local law and join them that would be a good place to start." Then Erica turned back to the blonde.

"Do you wish to accompany her or..."

"It is not a bad suggestion master," the priest said, turning to the young mage.   Of course, when Rider spoke, he returned his attention to her.  "Well I am looking more for a bookstore to purchase Christian literature.  However, if you have such a large collection at home, it may be worth exploring, if you have anything interesting."

Molly

The maid shook her head and let out soft giggle in response to his silly answer. She wiggled her right hand him her index finger raised, a cheeky grin present on her face. Now that wasn't what was unusual, it was the other thing that was happening at the same time. It was something truly out of the ordinary.

From her finger trailed a whiteish aura like smoke, an aura that would remain unseen to the common folk, yet there nonetheless. It's sublety was beautiful and deadly in equal measures. It's smokey form formed letters, no entire words, words directed towards the metal giant.

Then why are you holding back?

While his body had no such thing, he could have sworn he could feel his heart bounce fora second. If he had merely been intrigued, he felt that his emotions were closer to wariness after all.

He stepped aside and took note of her range. He paid attention to her hands, her knees, her mouth. It was no different than observing some interesting lab rat, but to him it was more than that. She was no stranger to combat, he could tell that much, but she was more than just some mere warrior among the thousands. She was closer to something else.

He laid the side of his hand over her shoulder, letting her skin feel the cold metal and something else as well. Wild, yet opaque, and overwhelming their surroundings like a fog. It slithered around her like serpents or tendrils, reaching past her limbs and stroking past her skin, but unlike her aura his had no true physical form. In a way, it was wilder and more uncontrolled than her, something closer to primal energy in its rawest state.

But despite being nothing more than rot, it was grand, and beautiful, and mighty in a way that only an ancient being could be. And as he traded her demonstration for his own and let her feel him, he asked her a question with the purest of curiosities.

"Who are you?"

Rin

Rin blinked at this new Sakura eagerly, yet gently, grabbing her arm and feeling the muscle tone there.

She grinned and answered, "Well, I can have some physical power when I need to. That's not my main ability though.  I'm kind of a Jack of All Trades sort."

Yes she looks like Sakura and seems to be a happy and well adjusted Sakura, but I just met her.  Babbling about magecraft seems kind of dangerous.


Forest

Forest blinked at Marcus's complaint and then smiled.

"You know, all I'm reading is on the surface.  If I really wanted to know everything about you, I'd actually have to try," Forest said with a shake of her head.

"Not to mention, you said it yourself, I am very old, even though kind of immature, it's one of the 'curse' parts of being a vampire.  But I've been around.  Seen a lot of stories.   You get to the point where you start to know what happens before it happens because history does indeed repeat itself."

Then she leaned forward and lightly kissed him before pulling away.

"And mind reading isn't something I'd curse my worse enemy with."

Joe

Joe just looked at the TV screen, trying his best to follow the flow of the mood.  I'll just go with "they want to hang out." If I don't do anything to anger them, I should be ok.
 Besides, maybe their just mean because they are awkward or something cute like that.


"Uhh, i'm an accountant," he said, trying his best to ignore the fact that the kid was ontop of his shoulders.  "I was pretty alright at math in highschool and college so I decided accounting was pretty lucrative."

He paused, as if he was unsure about his next sentence.  "Are you in school?"

Sakura Matou

Sakura laughed. "I'll take that as a compliment. As long as you know when you need to present yourself properly, I guess it doesn't matter what you do at home, right?" Sakura continued brushing as she spoke. "Make sure you shower at least three times a week! And stop throwing stuff away into other dimensions! I can get some maids to come here and clean if I need to!"

Olga Marie

Olga shook her head and began to watch. What, did she not get that she needed information? Couldn't she read between the lines? It wasn't as if they had a telepathic link so Saber couldn't hear. She wanted more information about her servant, and maybe to liberate some information about the skeleton's magic. She'd stop the fight if it got too one sided.

Saber

The flaming skeleton shot away faster than she could possibly react and dodged her blows with only his clothes getting scratched, that could have gone far better. She didn't have much time to consider her next action though as she soon found herself surrounded by numerous version of the same laughing idiot. Clones? This was the last straw, she wasn't worked up enough for this kind of stuff anyway.

Brutae gave a heavy sigh and then dashed to the left, smashing her way through the group and away from the clearing, With heavy steps she dashed away from it all, leaving them behind.

She wondered how long it would take her Master to realize she'd been ditched, the servant could easily imagine the wonderful expression Olga would make in that moment.

Lorenzo

Are these illusions? Niice!

The pirate braced himself and clasped his hand on his sword's hilt, ready to draw it while the tree became a fountain of flames. She'd probably pull off something, he needed to be ready. And suddenly... he blinked.

At least, if he had any eyelids, its probably what he'd done. This was simply incredible, he couldn't believe his own eyes! His jaw almost dropped on the floor from the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

But honestly, he didn't even want to question it. He tapped his poor bones and was just glad they were all still attached and healthy as ever.

"Hooo boy, that was close. I'm not sure if your little trick had anything to do with it, but thanks Grig!"

He sighed with relief before hopping down that tree, letting that burning tree immediately extinguish. He glanced around for a second before walking back to the group with a friendly wave.

"Well, that happened. So, what are you up to, buddy?" He asked the white haired lass with the sort of body posture that blurred the line between laissez-faire and easygoing.

Costin Andrei

The dead Apostle's eyes opened wide ad the sudden touch and feel of her muscles being torn, her bone being cracked open and her marrow ripped out. It was an uncontrollable sensation, no sane person would be able to ignore such agony. Instinct ordered for such a person to do the impossible in order to flee such a cruel attack, but Costin's eyes told a different story.

Even when her face was shot, all that was torn was her face, which regenerated as if the blast was rewinding, revealing a monstrous expression. It was as if she was coming closer and closer to a great climax, her thighs trembled and she tried to press her lower body over hers while blood showered them both.

hahahahahahh! Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! Don't stop don't stop don't stop!!

She drove her hand deeper, deeper, so much deeper, until her forearm was about to split in half like a butterfly. This feeling was true, and it was beautiful, and it was love! But it wasn't enough, this wasn't nearly enough. He needed her to suffer too in order to share this love!

"Uooooohhh!!!"

Chains erupted from her gaping wound as the chainsaw dug into her further and further, reeling so intensely they could grind stone as they wrapped around the girl's neck and chainsaw, grabbing hold of her arm with enough force to nearly break it. Her weapon slowed down as the chains blocked it until it began to crack slightly and halted in one go. Oh. She did stop. How sad.

: D

She grabbed her cannon arm with one hand, while the other closed off and healed, merging with the chains and blood in order to grab her other arm and pin them apart. Her slasher smile was nothing short but monstrous, a pure display of sheer killing intent and voracious hunger more befitting a beast than a human. And with a full, deliberate motion she swung her skull on her foe's face with so much force both her foe's face and her head nearly split open.

Molly

The maid shivered in awful delight as the spiritual tentacles crawled all over her, going inside, deeper than anything else, touching the very core of her being. It was simultaneously the most disgusting and pleasant experience of her life, but that didn't quite describe it. It was hard to put into words

Finally she managed a response, forgoing the artful aura manipulation this time, she instead use the normal means of communications.

"So aggressive, we haven't even been on a date and you're already inside me." She said bearing no I'll will towards him, like she just discussed the weather.

She tilted her heard in fake bewilderment as she pondered his question. "Who I am? Can't you tell?"

This time her aura was shaped into words once more. I'm  just a maid clearly!

Hmph. A trite reaction for such a little display. He had no patience for such jests, nor was he feeling particularly kind. However, her curiosity was commendable, it deserved to be seen through. At the very least, he would answer her previous question truthfully.

"I am the one asking questions."

He spoke with the sort of voice that belonged to a corpse more than a man of flesh and blood, a sheer pressure that was enough to choke the life out of the plants around the two, turning grass and shattered trees into mummified husks as he fed on their essence. She'd resist, of course, but not without feeling that presence drawing nearer, the sort of smell that all living beings seek to avoid desperately.

The end.

A powerful hand lifted her off the ground by the chin, the power of his grip was undeniable, yet there was no pain or emotion in his touch, as if she was being grabbed by a mannequin. He would neither look down on her nor lower himself to her level. He would bring her higher, so she may reach him. So that she may reach heaven. His soul dug deeper into hers, reaching out to her and grasping at her like a wild dance.

The sensation was impossible to describe, the colors sinking into her mind unable to be recreated, it was all too otherworldly, the sort of thing that one can only imagine in fairy tales. If one had to attempt, it was as if unseen hands were stroking her heart, cradling it as gently as a babe. In contrast to the fantastical feat, his voice was as somber as ever.

"You are mistaken. My enemies are not imaginary. Open your eyes, maid, you should be able to see them."

And once their foreheads touched, something indescribable penetrated her soul, thrusting into her in such ways that her entire being felt like it would be split open,  yet there was no pain or discomfort. It was as if it was the most natural thing in the world, the same way 2+2 makes 5 or the sky is actually made of broken cookie crumbs. It was quite trite, no different than shaping your soul's aura into letters or numbers.

He just thought it would be easier to show her instead of telling her, so he let her see the world the way he did. The seas of stars chained in stillness, the milky rivers of time swirling around ad nausea, a sickening stagnation, and the strings of fate dragging each and every one of them along like driftwood on a river.

The skies, the trees, the ground, even people. Everything looked fake, and wrong, and twisted. Like this world wasn't what it was meant to be. Every flaw, every mistake, every imperfection was as glaring as ever, and seemed more and more utterly unacceptable.

Letters of aura formed around the girl, the same exact display she had offered him earlier.

Do you understand now?

Butler

With that much, he could hazard a sharp guess or two at the essence of her previous engagements. Butler didn't have reasons to press on the details, but he did understand that she and those she rallied with were survivors, and that her enthusiasm for the philosophy described came from a place of inspiration and gratitude. And likewise, he was inspired by having his ability recognized.

The skull-faced man suspended that line of thought as Suzuko passed with her other interview subject and nodded back in acknowledgement. Before he continued speaking, he shifted in place so their direction was in his line of vision, and then turned his head with its pale shadows back to the seated woman.

"Thank you for the kind words. That is the level I strive to reach in all I do, the better to be remembered and satisfy both myself and those who have my services." Perhaps it was a little exaggerated to be true, but he wasn't going to turn around and rudely decline the words.

[13:38:37] Helligator: Depends on the god, but gods by definition in Nasuverse are strong because they have divine authority.
[13:38:48] Kat: Even the toilet god?
[13:38:56] Helligator: No one worships toilets.
[13:39:00] Helligator: Don't be a shitlord.

[04:32:08] Helligator: I can't make dragons in power armor like this

[19:50:12] francobull III: [...] why are you being all assive aggressive?

[23:32:37] Helligator: use the narrative as a means to convey an interesting story and cool conflicts with the openness you're allowed
[23:32:43] Helligator: not to CHEAT stories and conflicts

Well, at least Sakura understood these things. Somewhat. "I don't want maids though. It's weird." And it really was. The idea was fun and all if you had some sort of mansion with a ton of space but it's not like the house was that huge. It just felt strange.
