Alright, fine, you can be the bouncer! Make sure no boys get in!
You have a bad memory-
>she's cut off from saying anything else by being pulled into her lap
...What I want is for you to stop surprising me like that...And an orange soda.
No wonder I don't remember you. Have you ever thought changing names would make it harder to remember someone? Tch.
Especially with all of the people around it...
I don't even think I've heard of the movie we're watching.
...Fine fine, I'll wear the blindfold...
more secrets eh?
Still, the fact that you can even do something as make a tank fly just proves how amazing you are...
You're surely going to accomplish feats no other engineer could ever achieve!
Ainz Ooal Gown
I suppose if this is bait I will do a 36
Thank you Miss!
How would I know? I never talk to her, she's a loner even at family gatherings.
>she takes out a small night gown from seemingly no where and begins undressing also losing her bra in the process though seemingly being able to cover up the important bits with the tiniest but of fabric before sliding the nightgown on.
ah~.. That's better, it was getting hot in that..
They exist, trust me we have fans like that...
Your sacrifice will be appreciated. I can not go again.
I think a movie about specters.
*she mouths at the words she sees*
I see. In the end, he will be a specter.
It is Ramlethal Valentine.
I am joking. Because of these I find it harder to kill some of you.
I do not think I am this animu either. The requirement is that you have to be a girl. And I am sure you are one.
Baki the Grappler
I WATCHED A WAR HAPPEN!
Yeah. I don't give my notes over to anyone until I crook. So it's proper history.
Ah well the last time I was here I used the same exact name.
Valentine? That's an interesting last name actually. Shame it's not February or I'd ask you to be mine.
>He lets out a light laugh
So Ramlethal, what do you do?
Berns? Really now your gonna do your witching thing and come back?
An innocence. They come in a few types and various forms.
>He spins a hammer about the size of his palm around
Oh, you want to see protecting? Fine, I'll protect you. I'll make it so you in this next game, in fact.
But you have to give me some of your winnings, okay?
Whoa their Clawdia, you're doing some insane leg workout right now! The invisible chair move is really incredible.
We're actually all controlled by "gods" or whatever you want to call them. They control all of our actions
I've met my god, or rather my "self" like the Buddhists says... because it's the same thing!
ONLY ONE WAR? MAN, I THINK YOU'RE SLACKING BEHIND!
Subuaru.... I did it. I destroyed the wall, I think we're in the party.
Can you stop screaming now? I'll put the bag back on...
>She reaches behind the couch with her tail and pops open a cooler, feeling around and lifting up various cans of soda until she finds the right one, then gives it to you.
Here! I hope you like it, it's off-brand. How've you been? Good?
Hehe, alright, here!
>She hands you a bright red blindfold.
Woah, woah! Don't go blowing up any walls!
This is supposed to be a peaceful party!
Huh? What do you mean?
You can't even feel this, right? Then it's no big deal!
>She uncovers her eyes which, of course, were never fully covered at all, motioning back to the couch and the movie.
Come on! It's over halfway finished, you might make it in time for some of the good bits!
Want any snacks?
Yeah, exa- how did you know the plot twist already? Are you just that good at guessing?
Nope, it's a slumber party!
D'you have any pajamas? Want any snacks?
Want any snacks? Either of you?
I've got pretty much everything, I really stocked up for this one!
I don't know! Usually to escape a loop, we've got to go the opposite direction, right? So let's try turning around, or talking in reverse!
>She points at you.
Then lemme do it without having to surprise you!
A war huh? So. You document blood, for your own accord.
I'm awwright with that! Just how much do ya even need? I could probably even buy everythin' you are if it's needed ya know?
Sounds like you have good confidence!
All the better!
Maybe next you can make one the submerges underwater like I think we talked about before
Alright ladies, I'm in here and I'm crashing this stinking party. Subaru.....where are you?
What are you talking about Pawn of Fate?
I suppose I am returning just to enjoy myself and spectating you guys fight each other to death.
And the answer your second part of your question. The fact that I am here answers that question.
Oh. Another petty pawn of fate trying to converse with me.
May I ask what term are you not familiar with?
I am always faring well, well you could say bored. That is why I am here right now Pawn of fate.
You just really don't pay attention to some people do you chains-chan.
Nah. It just finished up and it was the only proper one that needed attention. No gives two shits about the gritty details of the civil wars that go on all the time. They just want to hear the winner and the results usually.
Kinda. Lets me fight the Akuma without getting my ass handed to me. Guess you can call them youkai too.
Nah. I document history as it happens. Last time I was around I documented a few people...
Like I said, last 35 years. I'll probably find it soon enough. That things manages to find its way back to me.
Guess you've got a point. So Berns how's time been for you?
Too bad envy cuck. You got decked into the grave by a bridge troll.
And now you're not listening to me...
>she shifts a little to let you get the soda can
About the same as yesterday. Only a little happier.
>she pops the soda open and takes a few sips
It's an effect actually. My hair doesn't grow this long normally.
That's your job.
...Is this what these parties are usually like? You just watch a movie with other people?
I don't have the ability to care about every single person that comes here.
VOTOMS? I'd never heard of it. Is it a new series?
If you think I'm Kaito you're as dumb as him...
Maybe if I lie still long enough I can fool myself into thinking I am actually dead too.
Is it at random times after random stuff, or do certain times of day or activities seem to bring them in?
My notes always seemed to do the opposite, hide themselves from me as fast as possible.
Well yeah, it's my job, but I can't be everywhere at once. As far as parties go, it really depends. This is more like the sort of thing adolescent or younger girls would do, though that's not to say older folks don't have similar activities at their own.
>She tilts her head in the opposite direction, ears flicking. In contrast to her actions, she drops her voice to a whisper as well.
But why? I don't get it.
Are you feeling sad or something?
Because there aren't any others! Subaru has permission, and Aiza--... A-And, that's it!
You're the only one!
Wait, no, him! >>3838391
Alright, now, uh.. This is an accessory that came with the blindfold, I think it helps with your breathing or something? Maybe it's a breathing filter. Open your mouth.
>She chomps another chip.
Hm, fiiiine. You're the boss.
Stinking? There's nobody stinking here, this is an all-girls party! You're not even allowed here! Get outta here!
>She reaches into her cooler and pulls out a whole tub of ice cream and a spoon, handing them both to you.
Here! Knock yourself out!
Work will this sure percent hundred one I'm.
Walnuts? You're my kinda girl! Here!
>She reaches right into her tail and pulls out a pouch, tossing the whole thing towards the pair.
I keep a bunch of different nuts tied in pouches on my tail! They're my snacks!
Of course I'm listening. I'll do my best not to surprise you anymore, okay?
Hey, at least you're getting happier. That's really nice to hear.
So what is it that he finds special about her?
Elly. Who is this woman?
You may not like it.
If you were not able to regenerate.
Is that what it is? Am I supposed to be scared?
I guess. Are movies always this predictable?
>The site is messing up for me again
I am never dead.
I am just enjoying the games that people have challenged me and failed miserably.
I suppose you must be Free.
You may try and disguise yourself.
But not from me.
Before you go on. I must ask you.
How do you know me.
I never recall you before.
I suppose you are someone I met before but I put it off as someone irrelevant and will be forgotten by time.
Pawn of fate. Beings that are controlled by fate. I suppose low life forms like you would never understand the meaning. I am afterall, living in a higher plane of existence compared to you. Pawn of fate.
How about you pawn of fate. How do you fare?
Aww, that's a shame, it could be a fun one
Y-You want to hear about it? I mean, that's what your body language tells me.
I knew you were a bright girl, Clawdia!
I'm confused, so are boys are allowed or not?
I don't need bodyguards pawn of fate. I don't need some pathetic and useless pawn of fate as part of my piece.
I'm appearing to this place at the nights, because I want to host for the people here
>she turns around and dashes forward and jabs her claw at the creature
I think it is safe to say that was a ruse.
Why does he get permission? You're being a bully! I'm not going to throw him out if you're going to keep on being a jerk to me, and I certainly won't go anywhere.
A feeling of dread? Like, nervousness, but you aren't sure over what?
They're allowed, don't listen to Ms. Crabby over there. Take a seat, Baki, I brought some meat.
They eat peoples souls, so yes.
Ah... the least you could do is act like you give a shit, hell I already forgot most your name Urots....
Lavi, I'm a bookman.
I'unno, if I believe the holocaust never happened. Will the old guy complaining go away?
Shame really. Since I like to write about everything I do since technically I witness history everyday.
You don't go about eating people now do you? It'd be a real shame to try taking someone home and wake up with them over you, butcher knife in hand and a crooked smile.
>He hits the deck head down under his left arm banging the ground with his balled up right fist
Everyone's so cruel to me after my return....
>Standing up and brushing off his knees, a smile across his face.
Lavi Bookman, met you a long while back Berns.
Eh they happen at least once a century now. Nothing special.
>he opens his mouth wide
Alright, I'm ready
>negro you're fucking cray
I'll take that as a compliment, since that's as far as you can probably go with complimenting me.
Have you ever thought about getting a scooter instead? You'd get here twice as fast, and you'd be just as scary!
Probably. I suppose I shall start setting it up.
J-Jokes on you... I know I'll not really die, and I'll reincarnated.... if you were englighted you'd be like me at this moment. Peaceful and...
>you finish me off
He will be dead in at most 10 years so let him have his fun
We, as in my family, as long as we sing we get anything we want pretty much.
>Her eyes light up and she snatches the tub away from her and begins to dig in.
Ah~... The best treat for a hot summer day..
Probably that, she's kind of the only loner in our family, that and... Well I don't know if he's told you but he was designated a failure, well so was she, but he's an idiot so it could be for some other reason.
Um.. Here, read the back of this one and tell me how it ends!
>She hands you the Ghostbusters movie case and points to the description summary.
>Again, she tilts her head to the opposite side.
Yeah, me too!
What's the issue?
What's wrong? Want to talk about it?
Makoto's here for you!
>She giggles and hands you a few chips.
Can I have a raise?
No, they're not allowed!
Because he's wearing a blindfold!
If he can't see anything, then he can't cause problems or peep on girls getting naked!
>Yes, bitch, it's a ball gag.
>She puts it on you before you can react, connecting it behind your head and smiling wide at her accomplishment.
There! How do you feel? Like you can breathe better?
Talk manga in speaking I'm like it's!
Hustler-One. Ace "Raven" Pilot. I pilot an armored core named Nine Ball.
Huh, I'd never even heard of the series.
I personally like the bigger ones, even if we can't make them yet.
...Hm. I guess we'll see.
It's a slow process. And any trouble sets progress back.
>she settles in the lap
Whatever... I'd rather not think about that right now.
...Wanna join us for a party? We're um... we're watching a movie, and we have snacks...
...I believe so if the music and sound effects are any indication....
I don't know though.
>she grins a bit and takes some popcorn, munching on it.
I guess you're right. Mostly historian's care enough to inspect the minor details of war.
That kind of hurts, you know...
And I don't practice it. It was just given to me for some reason. I don't get it at all, but I'm not really going to question it either.
>a ton of mumbling noises, and he even begins to drool a little bit.
Are vampires and other youkai "pawns"?
This is my co-worker, the vampire I men-
>"My name's Kurumi. Hello, hello~."
>"Well, it is in my name, it's in my name."
>She lets go of the parasol entirely, managing to catch the thing
Honestly, I swear it's just a joke.
I've never heard of one of us that do THAT! Even the most hostile ones only eat the bodies...
>"I just have blood now and then~."
That is very nice of you. I suppose you don't mind if i spectate and let my mirror image participate in this event no?
It's the smell of someone getting left behind by their damsel who happens to be the troll of the bridge.
Lavi Bookman. I never recalled you. It seems like it was 1000 years ago? I can't recall that long.
So pawn of fate, what do you want?
That is not ego. That is confidence and power pawn of fate. I suppose you don't know the difference since you are a lesser being.
I don't really want to, I'm afraid I might ruin the party, so I guess I'll...uh...walk away now.
>she steps away
That's pretty nuts. I think I'd cramp up after the first hour. You have a backup journal or something to write in while the notebook is missing?
Fuck yeah, bro! Get you some amino acids!
>He tosses you a pack of pastrami
Why would you be getting naked at all!? It's a slumber party, not an orgy.
I see, I see. Does this mysterious object often plague your thoughts? Is it consistent in whatever aspects are concrete to you?
>collecting a lewd furry's blood
Enjoy your aids Clawdia
>leaves the place to the underworld!
It's like...well, there's two kinds.
There's ones with motors, and ones you have to push yourself. I think the latter one would fit you better.
>She comes back with some Kobe beef mixed in with Chow Mein, one of th' newest vidya games, 2 cans o' cola and she makes a jump when deliverin' it.
That should be more than enough now shouldn't it?
No. I just go around killing people sometimes.
It is appreciated.
He has. You do not seem to like your brother.
The heroes save the day. With all the positive critiques I am seeing, it also received another movie.
I feel nothing watching this.
Hello, hello? Greetings. So you are allies with Elly.
>She abruptly shifts awkwardly
...Sure. Sounds like a deal.
They're cool, but...impractical, thus far. The things in VOTOMs can't even fly, but they've got these things that deploy from their feet that let them become extremely mobile on the ground!
It's...something you need to see for yourself.
...And you never leave the house.
That'd imply I ever paid you in the first place.
Youkais. vampires. You are no better than the humans despite you have more powers than the humans. You guys are still considered to be pawns of fate no matter what. You cannot escape fate. You can't change your destiny. You are fated to be.
>raises hand and starts to force chokes you
I suppose you want to die so badly, Eruka.
You're a nuisance and a curr; profess whatever garbage you want. I'll go take my business elsewhere.
Glad you like it! I stocked up on a ton of snacks before this, it's a pretty important night, y'know!
The movie's almost over, have you seen it before? It's about a guy that was actually a ghost the whole time.
>She starts to pet your head with her tail, nodding.
I understand. I just hope that I can help to make you a happy person. Your friend Garry.. If he shows up, he can come to the party.
I'll make an exception to the boys only rule for your friends!
You shouldn't do things that make you feel bad..
...I don't get it.
No you're not! Go awaaay!
Hey, you're salivating a lot! That's a good thing, right? It means you're breathing really well compared to how you would normally, right? I think so!
Oh it was a joke? Eh, keep the nuts anyways.
>She points to a cooler nearby the couch.
There're a lot of snacks in there, if you wanna just take your pick. Ice cream sandwiches and stuff.
A bunch of girls together are bound to take off some clothing, duh! It's like, you guys can take your shirts off in front of each other. Have you never been a girl at a slumber party? Well, of course you haven't.
Hoh! That's a really good guess, Rammy, both of those are right!
This is a talent! No one's as good as you at this!
I demand a paycheck!
>She starts trying to hold back giggles.
I'm gonna go on strike!
Yes, yes! Now fan me off with money as you feed me the ramen!
I guess you've got your hans full already
>If this is bait, I will ignore both posts and going to create another thread
Elly and Kurumi
She...likes repeating herself sometimes.
>"I'm thinking you don't know something about us~."
>"We don't even exist, we never existed, we never existed!"
>"I do like them, I do! My name is also their name, is all."
>Elly shakes her head, slowly walking over to it and looking in in confusion
Armored core, safe to assume that's something akin to a mech then right? Well hey. I'll probably catch you later, for now I need to find something I lost.
Also flea bag, you should shoot me a piece of mail telling me the results of the game. I've gotta get rolling instead of bugging your bones.
Well I sit on the battlefield and watch gruesome scenes unfold. Ever see a guys skull fragment from a .22 round at near point blank range? Ha, that'll be a story for sometime. I'll see ya later gearsy.
Yeah, so we kick the crap outta them. We're called exorcist and get these sweet black robes to protect us. I'll see you around sometime since it's past midnight your time and approaching for me.
>He puts his hands horizontally and his head down on them
Just saying hi since you happen to be around right now.
Ah yeah of course. I'd just have to go find that too but it'll be easier to find. I'll probably be back with it sometime in the next few days.
Uh.... That... seems kinda major but I'll roll with it. Hey I've got this thing that sorta came up, and I kinda can't skip it. So just try to remember the name Lavi for me alright Ram-chan? It'd make my day when I get back.
>Sorry everyone it's getting late. Heading to bed.
I destroyed your wall, and I'm staying. What are you going to do about it?
Alright I picked up the first roster and replaced myself with my pet.
...I don't really know how to explain it. it's like...half a bike?
>he just kind of stands there, blindfolded and gagged
>he doesn't know what to do
B-But I didn't even get to tell my story yet!
Goodnight though. Try not to have nightmares.
Then it's no deal. I won't protect you if you're going to go against my wishes.
Well I'll be damned! It looks good!
Sounds like shine maidens...hmh. Good night, sir.
They don't even fly... What a waste.
Maybe we could watch it another time. I'll be the judge of whether it's something I need to see.
We could always do something else... Being honest, movies get boring once you know what kind of movie it is.
That'd be appreciated. You can trust him....
>she takes another drink
I'm so tired of being this way...
I won't lie or pretend like I care if I don't. I'm genuine.
It's lookin' just fine. Thanks for pickin' all of us up when they were just goofin' 'round with askin' us to show up!
How 'bout I just push you into a tree again? That'll should be helpin' out for th' both of us! I ain' just a maid, that's Sachi 'n stuff, you should be lookin' for her.
I can give you Hamsuke's spot. I was already planning to host anyways.
Well... It was nice talking to you, I feel like I've learned quite a bit, but I've gotta get going here, and get some sleep...
You think that you guys don't exist. And yet I can still see you in this form. If there's a believer. Thus they exist in the plane of existence. Your existential belief does not change that fact.
>starts sipping tea.
I suppose you should try and like me. Because I will be here for the long run, Pawn of Fate.
Do you want me to treat you like you used to? Eruka? You are no better than Erika Furudo.
I do not know. But that is the only thing memorable about you.
Oh, really? Kurumi means walnuts? I never would've guessed! Hehe, that's sort of silly, actually.
Say, Elly, who's gonna watch the mansion while both of you are here?
Well, what is it that makes you feel bad?
You should really stop doing it!
You like girls of your own species, right? I'm sure you're not attracted to human or beastkin girls.
That'd just be weird.
I'll have my bodyguard kick you out!
And I'll yell at you a lot!
How many volunteer hours do I need to cash in for a smooch on the cheek?
I like you a lot! You're one of my best guy friends here!
Don't be silly!
Well, everything cool seems obvious to you. That just proves that you're extraordinary and awesome.
Oh, my name's Makoto, nice to meet you too!
Oops, I already messed up. Sorry.
>She sits you down on the couch and pops open a bag of gummy worms, trying to fit one of the worms through the holes on the gag.
Are these.. Eating holes?
Huh? Of being what way?
I like you how you are, Urotsuki. You're a sweetheart.
Oh this one, I've watched it before with Meito, I don't think it's really scary, it's just about suspense...
>She gets another spoon full and eats it.
... Why did you say it like that? Do you have a problem with my family?
>She looks you up and down and then looks up into your eyes.
What are you planing with my brother?
I didn't figure there was anything. I guess that's good enough for me.
Where's the bodyguard, I see none, but one's for hire though.
Mmm, no bonfire...
Oh! Greetings er...fellow warriors? How goes unlife?
It's ok... talking like that was...
I think I'm about to fall asleep...
If this is what you call unlife, I've to say it feels quite lively.
Yeah.. I'm just gonna go ahead and leeeeave..
>"I'm right here, I'm right here...!"
She can be...silly at times. But still, when she's on duty she doesn't hesitate to be completely serious. In fact, back in the day, she was so good at her job, I hadn't fought in years.
Well, from that perspective...our timeline never happened. None of the events, and most of the people simply never existed from that version, and those who did were...changed.
>"There isn't one...there isn't one...."
As she said. It's just the Garden. And as it were I have my duplicate out guarding it now.
Get sucked into a different dimension that give people powers, obviously. I can't promise you that you'll get dark type powers. I've been told they're actually kind of rare.
I don't have enough money for Sachi things. That brand is expensive.
And I'll smash you into a tree before you smash me into one. Need I remind you of what I did moments ago?
>he violently shakes his head and loudly mumbled stuff
Guys, what's up with the dudes with coconuts? I get that they're carrying our stuff, but why coconuts?
The swords are clean The chainsaw is running. The axe has not been used. Time to remove.
>nods her head slowly
>curls up on ground resting her head on her bag
No, I just hadn't figured you were one of those vocaloids. Only female I've ever actually talked with was a depressed drunk....
Depends on who's doing that to who.
Ergh...be seeing you.
Fights are more tense because of it...! Though the first few episodes are a bit slow.
I have the feeling we can guess a lot about each other, but...we just don't know for certain.
Then go to sleep. Who knows, maybe you'll have powers when you wake up!?
Hey my name's Baki, I just broke in earlier. What's with the chainsaw?
I can only hope that one day you'll be able to forget me for this, but I had to do it.
Saying hi? Pawn of fate. I think there's a better things you can do aside from saying hi to me. Since that did not cure my boredom. Why don't you fight against the people around me and try to entertain me. I think that's more useful than saying that to me.
I suppose. Because you are not trying to do anything Grandiose. You are always trying to be someone who are irrelevant. Perhaps that is why you are forgotten most of the time.
I am no warrior. I am just a spectator pawn of fate.
>kicks your back
I think you are too late if you are expecting to leave. Eruka, I suppose you don't want to die again now would you?
The holy grail. The feats of King Arthur. That is pathetic. King Arthur only returns to be fatally wounded by his own son. That is truly sad.
But now here you are. That means someone believed in certain aspect of you. If not you would not sanding here in this plane of existence.
Have you ever considered that?
Good job. I am not a master at archery. But I suppose if I wee to use magic, that would be a different case.
Time for me to be movin' outa here. It ain' goin' to end up pretty if I stay...
Sachi ain' a brand, Subadum. Sachi's a maid... geez... I expected you to understand that 'n stuff. Well th' only thing I can remember is how I turned a waistlock 'round 'n dropped you to th' floor along with a smooch to stop ya from harmin' me! In which... well ya seemed to be havin' an erection 'n stuff.
I wasn't really expectin' to see a dragon on a horse to be burnin' me to a crisp...
You and few others seem to remember. When a grand witch able to end a planet with no effort remembers that's good enough for me
I just wanted to make a joooke
Yeah! See, it's really not about any of that. I think what makes a good movie is how much fun you have while watching it, right?
>She shovels a handful of chips into her mouth.
>She takes a deep breath, and then retrieves a whistle from her shirt, which she starts to blow into.
>Already crowded in grills, she reaches over and grabs the little one, pulling her into soft squirrel snuggles.
You can sleep right here! You lose the slumber party!
Hmm.. Are you a blood donor? Er, no, are you a nurse that collects blood?
You look a little young for that.
Then wear a blindfold! You can't watch girls doing things at slumber parties! You're a boy!
You are! It's like, you think really great things are just natural, like buying people gifts or being really good at predicting things. The fact that you're so casual about it makes you cool! Hard-boiled, even!
Oh, you did a swap? You should do that more often! I'd like to know I'm interacting with the real Elly.
>She turns towards Kurumi.
Elly told me you're feeling sick, the sun's hurting you?
Huh? I can't understand you!
>She takes off the gag and holds it dangling over the couch.
What is it?
Yeah! People are really enjoying it! It's the most lively I've seen a lot of these people!
>She wraps her tail around your shoulders, like a scarf.
Depends which one's cheaper!
>She innocently smiles up to you from her spot on your lap.
Really? I thought I accidentally let a lot slip back there.
