Date: March 9th, 2007.
Darkdata: "Ah, back at last."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are at the ship. ...Wait a minute... what is Metal Man doing there?
Alexia: "...Metal?"
Metal Man (GM): ...And he's having a button pressing match with Glyph.
Metal Man: "I can press the buttons faster!"
Alex: .oO(Stalking me back here?)
Digifanatic: .oO(And where is Gibby?)
Glyph: *Leviathan curses at Metal.* [Hop] "I play winner!"
Harnit: "Greetings..."
Metal Man: *Click.* *clickclickclickclickclick.* *ZAP* "Ow! Not again! Oh... uh... hi."
Dragoshi: "Hiya, Metal."
Metal Man waves, then realizes the button is now stuck to his finger, and pulls it off.
Alex: "Good job, Questers. I managed to watch it all, but Glyph became distracted once Metal arrived..."
Darkdata: "Should I ask?"
Julian: "WHOA! Who're you?"
Digifanatic: "And you are?"
Julian: "How the hell'd you get on this ship?"
Alex: "Surely you remember walking past me to get into the warp..."
Dragoshi: *Pulls out the cursed 4 button and starts spinning it around for no reason.*
Harnit: "He's a new Quester..."
Alex: "My name is Alex."
Alexia: "...THAT could get confusing."
Metal Man: "Anyway, uh, let's see. I had something important to say, but it appears I misplaced it somewhere." *He rummages around a pile of paper on the floor.*
Julian: "...Jesus, not another one..."
Digifanatic: .oO(That makes two... well, three if I count Scott's buddy...)
Metal Man (GM): *He takes out a piece of paper.* "Here we go."
Dragoshi: "...Oh, right. Who ordered the ruin miasma in a bottle?" *Holds it up.*
Glyph: [Leviathan] "I did!"
Dragoshi: "...Liar."
Glyph: *Leviathan lunges for it.*
Douglas shakes his fist at Glyph.
Traon walks over towards Dragoshi and lets out a light laugh. "Believe it or not Dragoshi, I'm having conversations with that voice in my head now... I'm either going insane now, or it's real."
Douglas: "Robot, fetch!"
Dragoshi: "...Well, unless, ya know-Woah." *Jumps back.*
Julian: *Leviathan meets a fist to his face.*
Dragoshi: "...Fun."
Metal Man: "Ah, right. That there is Garrick." *Points at Alex.* "Wait a minute... that's not Garrick... this mail came addressed to him for no reason."
Alexia winces.
Metal Man opens the letter.
Dragoshi: "You okay, Metal?"
Alexia: "Aaaand Leviathan gets his nose inserted into his skull."
Metal Man: "This is apparently some sort of invitation."
Julian: *And Julian bops Levi one good in the nose.*
Dragoshi: "...To what?"
Metal Man: "Not to Charles' place either."
Dragoshi: "Okay. Where then?"
Alexia: "To a party?"
Douglas snaps.
Metal Man: "To... The Wario-Waluigi Genetia branch grand opening?"
Alexia: "Oh."
Dragoshi: "...watewut??"
Julian: "Stop tryin' to d-...The hell are those two suckas doin' up here?"
Harnit: "How can branches grow in toxic gas...?"
Dragoshi: "..."
Glyph: *Leviathan has been knocked onto the floor.*
Metal Man: "...I don't know, but they have proclaimed that since they were run out of Eisnaught by thugs from some branch of the Sawyer Financial Racket, they've come here..."
Dragoshi: "Wrong kind of branch. ...Uh-huh."
Julian: "...Racket."
Dragoshi: "How'd that happen?"
Alexia: *excitedly.* "Can we go crash it?"
Julian: "Mets, we got a line back to Nintendus, right?"
Metal Man: "It appears they were stowaways on the delivery of supplies last time, as this is clearly Kuja stationery."
Dragoshi: "...Seriously, though. Where do I put the miasma?"
Glyph glares at Dragoshi.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo floats in.
Harnit: "Okay then. How can you have a bank on a toxic planet?"
Douglas: "We're going to be examining it, Dragoshi... so. Him."
Mewtwo: "That... is to be sent to be researched. Which is why Metal is here."
Alexia: "Hi, Master Mewtwo."
Dragoshi: "...I believe this is yours." *Hands it over to Mewtwo.*
Metal Man: "Uh, yes. I'm going to take it back to HQ for Ivan and co. to research."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo takes it.
Glyph: *Leviathan stands up and hisses.*
Julian: "Good, I got a call to make."
Glyph: [Leviathan] "I need that, damn it!"
Harnit: "For what, if I may ask?"
Alexia: "Hit him again, Julian."
Dragoshi: "...To live."
Metal Man: "Its an energy source of some kind."
Julian: *Knocks Levi back down.* "What part of 'Stop Tryin' ain't you gettin'?"
Digifanatic: "Don't we have that robot as well?"
Dragoshi: "But he only needs a really small amount."
Darkdata: "I wonder what would happen if he ate one of my candies?"
Julian: *Bop.*
Alexia: "Disaster."
Alexia telekinetically picks Darkdata up by the collar.
Dragoshi: *Continues spinning the cursed 4 button on his finger out of boredom.*
Alexia: "NO. MORE. CANDY."
Darkdata: "..."
Alexia: "Understand?"
Metal Man: "Anyway..." *Takes it.* "I thought you guys might want to take a short break and check out this weird bank."
Darkdata: "Dance, Alexia."
Douglas: "So, the news of the W&W bankers coming to Genetia just means they are available for us now? Oh, ok."
Metal Man: "Yes. They've built a branch... in a small crater just a mile or two south of here."
Douglas: "Should we go now, or later?"
Alexia: "For what? WHO in their right mind would go there to bank?!"
Traon: .oO("It is actually enjoyable watching these people figure things out. And here I am just sitting back and watching." 'And why don't you do anything?' "Because I don't want to right now. It's more fun to watch.") *Again he laughs.*
Digifanatic: "Alexia... you just about hit the nail on the head."
Harnit: "... Why do we need a bank?"
Julian: "I do. I wanna know what the hell happened."
Dragoshi: "..." *Continues spinning the cursed 4 button... Bored, bored, bored... So goddamn bored.*
Douglas: "People without a bank, Alexia... Just like EVERYONE on the planet."
Alexia: "No, who would go to Wario to bank? That's stupid."
Digifanatic: "People who don't know how greedy he is."
Dragoshi: "...Damned if I know."
Darkdata: "His credit card deal is bad enough."
Julian: "Rich people. He almost had a monopoly when we left 'cause he could hire the best defense for the vault."
Douglas: "People who don't know Wario."
Metal Man: "Anyway... if you guys want to go there, you can ride in my limo."
Digifanatic: "They think they can trust the big guy, and boom, he snatched their money..."
Alexia: "I'm in."
Dragoshi: "But, meh. Now to figure out what to do with this button."
Alexia: "I want to see their faces when we walk in."
Dragoshi: "Sure. Why not?"
Harnit: "Aren't we in space?"
Douglas: "...Wait. Your limo?.. Is it safe?"
Metal Man walks over to the hangar area, with the miasma. "Yes... safer than this Seeker, even."
Glyph: *Leviathan begins searching the Seeker for a self-destruct button.*
Julian: "It's nearly indestructible."
Alexia follows.
Douglas: "That's surprising."
Digifanatic: *to Julian.* "I'll take the Escalade."
Alexia: "I think Leviathan's trying to do something."
Dragoshi: *Follows.* "...Ya think?"
Julian: "Fuck you, we're takin' the limo." *heads for the hangar.*
Digifanatic: "Considering it came with the ship... or not."
Glyph: [Leviathan] "My life seriously lacks sending you all to hell."
Metal Man (GM): Leviathan looks for a button... now that's no fair. Metal broke it in his button pressing contest.
Digifanatic follows them to the limo.
Glyph: [Leviathan] "Oh damn it!"
Harnit follows the others..
Digifanatic: "WHAT THE...?"
Douglas leaves for Metal's limo.
Metal Man (GM): Metal's pitch black limo can be seen. Its now got three rows of seats, with 3 seats per row.
Alexia hops into the limo.
Dragoshi: "...Nice limo." *Hops into the limo too.*
Metal Man (GM): And a shotgun seat in the front, and the pilot seat for Metal.
Alexia: "Oooo..."
Douglas gets FRONT RIGHT WINDOW.
Dragoshi: *Shotgun!*
Darkdata: "Leviathan right/Leviathan Wrong/I seal you to where you stand/With this song."
Harnit sits in the back..
Traon hops in ze limo. "Oh joy, a limo. Never been in one of these."
Darkdata: *To the Limo.* *Takes whatever seat is empty.*
Dragoshi: *Still, though. Drago picks shotgun!* >_>
Julian sits in the back. Y'know, where you SIT in a limo.
Traon is in the back as well, and it seems hes already into the wine. "Ye olde wine." *hic.*
Julian: "I got bad experiences with limousines..."
Dragoshi: *Puts the 4 button away and puts it away.*
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata's seal fails.
Metal Man starts it up. "Buckled up? No? All right, let's go!"
Julian: "Luckily they thing's tougher than-...Y'know that stuff's probably flat. An' vinegary. Seein' as how it's been sittin' back here for God knows how long."
Alexia: "Buckled up?"
Dragoshi: .oO(Vinegar can kill.) >_>
Traon throws the bottle of wine at Julian.
Dragoshi: "...Yep."
Metal Man steps on the gas... everyone would be sucked to the back of their seats. People without seatbelts would fly into the rear row immediately.
Harnit: "Gaaaaaaaaah!"
Douglas flies into the rear row, on Julian.
Metal Man (GM): The Limo barrels out of control out of the Seeker, over debris-covered land. The inside would shake and rattle, people without seatbelts flying around like they're inside a dryer.
Dragoshi: *In sucked into the bottom of his seat.* .oO(Ow, dammit!)
Julian ducks the bottle, grabs Douglas, and pushes him up so he crashes into the window.
Metal Man: "Hm... what is THIS?"
Alexia goes flying around.
Dragoshi: "Good god, Metal!" @_@
Douglas circulates, but decides Wind would cease the crashing into people.
Metal Man: "A giant canyon?"
Julian: "...Shoulda taken the Escalade."
Alexia: "YAAAAAAAAAAAH!"
Dragoshi: "I am so damn glad I wore a seatbel-..."
Metal Man: "Wheeeeee!!!!" *Drives over a cliff.*
Traon: "Wheres the Porsche? I know you have one."
Metal Man (GM): The limo is now falling straight down, towards the bottom of the canyon.
Dragoshi: "...Funtastic."
Alexia smashes into the side of the limo as her eyes glaze over from a concussion.
Julian: "...Mets, this thing better be able to fly."
Metal Man: "Oh! I forgot... which button turns that on..."
Harnit just closes his eyes...
Metal Man (GM): *Presses a green button.*
Alexia: "Na soo me yuu..."
Traon: "... So now we are lemmings..."
Metal Man (GM): Really horrible music begins playing over the speakers.
Douglas widens his windy eyes, as he remains in control of where he is, when in wind form..
Dragoshi: "...You mean nature's retard?"
Music: "I AM THE EGGMAN, I HAVE THE MASTER PLAN"
Julian: "Y'know that whole thing was faked? Disney forced the lemmings to march over the cliff."
Metal Man: "No... here we go." *SMACK.*
Dragoshi: "...Seriously?"
Julian: "Fo' real."
Harnit: "L-lemmings?"
Traon: "Yes. The animal that commits mass genocide by running off the side of the cliff along with hundreds of others."
Dragoshi: "Damn."
Metal Man (GM): *VOOM* Jets turn on, and it suddenly is flying. It makes a sudden turn from down to up, throwing everyone not in a seat belt around again.
Dragoshi: "Those bastards."
Alexia: *CRASH.* "...Arl?"
Douglas: *Whiffs through people harmlessly!*
Metal Man (GM): It crashes through some rocks and spins around a couple times before landing on ground again, and shaking normally.
Alexia groggily sits up, blood dripping from her mouth.
Traon: "Yay for seatbelts! ..." *He hurls his lunch at Dragoshi.*
Harnit tries to clamber into a seat and buckle himself in.*
Metal Man (GM): Douglas is sucked into the heater system.
Dragoshi: *Nimbly evades the barf... Or tries to.*
Metal Man (GM): He is heated to 200 degrees, chopped up by fans, and then recirculated throughout the limo.
Dragoshi: "...This is getting ridiculous."
Alexia probably ends up breathing a few lungfuls of Douglas.
Metal Man: "We're almost there... wait... there's a giant rock--" *SMASH.*
Alexia: "I think I bit my tongue in half..."
Dragoshi: "...Nice driving, Metal."
Harnit: "Gaah!"
Julian: "Wearin' a seatbelt defeats the entire purpose of a limo... but it's Metal. He ain't one for comfort."
Dragoshi: >_>;;
Metal Man (GM): The car comes to a dead stop, then flies backwards. Then flies upwards and ricochets off of the rock.
Traon: "Wait, I think theres more coming up... Nope, its just gas." he feels relieved now.
Julian: *shakes head.* "Shoulda taken the Escalade..."
Alexia spits out a piece of bloody skin before getting smashed around again.
Dragoshi: "Is his driving ability always like this...?"
Metal Man: "Okay, here we are." *Turns off the engine, causing the car to crash into the ground... and begin sliding at a large purple building.*
Julian: "METAL! Would it be so hard to drive SMOOTH?"
Metal Man: "...I forgot to tell them to install the brakes."
Douglas uses his breathing technique to wrap around Alexia's head for now, giving her some pure oxygen, safe for doing stuff in No-air terrain for a limited time.
Metal Man: "Aaaaahhhhh!!!!" *SMASH* *CRASH* *BOOOOOM.*
Metal Man (GM): At the Waluigi n' Wario Bank...
Julian: "...You forgo-THE BRAKES?!" *SMASH CRASH BOOOOOOOOOM.*
Douglas: *Of course, breathing in Douglas slowly damages him.*
Metal Man (GM): A teller is at the main desk. They're half-asleep due to a lack of customers.
Dragoshi: "Wate, WHA-" *CRASH!*
Metal Man (GM): Suddenly... *BOOOOOM.*
Alexia: "...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA."
Metal Man (GM): The limo crashes through the wall, flies over their head, takes out ten tables, and then screeches to a halt next to the safe.
Dragoshi: "...Okay. Metal."
Metal Man (GM): Metal opens the driver's side door and walks out, head-spinning.
Metal Man: "...We made it!"
Traon: "I get the feeling this was all planned", he said, and somehow he is upside down in his seat while wearing a seat belt.
Dragoshi: "They allowed you to drive, WHY?" *Concentrates a little water and uses it to wash out whatever barf hit Traon.*
Metal Man: "You didn't hear of the time I drove over a subterranean waterfall, did you?"
Alexia just kind of slides out with a dazed look and her lip bitten until it bleeds.
Julian: "..." *Julian unbuckles, opens his door, and slowly slides out, landing in a heap on the floor.* "Metal... you never drivin' again. EVER. 'Least while I'm in the car." *Julian picks himself up, and walks over to the teller.*
Dragoshi: *Tries to move over to Alexia.*
Metal Man (GM): The teller is standing perfectly still.
Teller: "...Please... don't... crash limos... into this... " *Faints.*
Julian: "..."
Dragoshi: "..."
Julian: "See what you do to people, Mets?:"
Douglas is a big windy bubble circulating around Alexia's head. :o
Metal Man: "Whoops!"
Douglas speaks only enough for Alexia to hear. "Get up!"
Dragoshi: *Pokes Alexia, trying to wake her up.*
Harnit: "W-we can warp back, r-right?"
Alexia: "..."
Metal Man: "Anyway... uh..."
Metal Man (GM): A door opens. Out comes... Waluigi.
Alexia slowly staggers to her feet.
Julian: "..." *looks for the way to the Executive Offices... but that works too.*
Waluigi: "...Mama-mia! There's a car in the main room!"
Dragoshi: *Extends a hand.* "Need some help with that?"
Julian: "Blame him. Lemme see Wario."
Waluigi: "A car which has destroyed thousands of dollars in tables!"
Douglas releases from Alexia and reforms next to her, and reverts to solid form, less some health.
Dragoshi: "...Why so many tables?"
Alexia: "...Finland?"
Metal Man (GM): Waluigi opens the door and yells into the room there.
Waluigi: "Hey, you! Wario! Come out here!"
Metal Man (GM): Wario walks out, wearing his yellow outfit. He starts smoking a cigar while looking at the wreckage.
Dragoshi: *Still has a hand extended to Alexia, as if trying to help her get up... That is if she hasn't already. If not, nevermind.*
Wario: "I knew I shouldn't have forged the insurance on this place."
Julian: "Wario! What the hell happened? Last I heard you got run outta town by some kinda racket."
Alexia looks dizzily at Dragoshi's hand.
Wario: "Yeah, it was yours. A bunch of swirly-eyed jerks, thats what it was!"
Alexia: "Why are you looking at me like that?" *She pokes Dragoshi's hand.*
Wario: "They were sorta like him... except... more explosions, and less limousines!"
Dragoshi: "...Wha?"
Metal Man (GM): He points at Metal.
Dragoshi: "That's a hand."
Julian: "...Swirly-eyed jerks... You got a picture?"
Alexia: "...No it's not."
Metal Man: "Hey, its not my fault I have 1000-25,000 vision."
Dragoshi: "...It isn't?"
Metal Man: "No, talking lamp fixture."
Dragoshi: "...Also, god DAMN, Metal. What does that make you?"
Alexia: "...It's a squirrel."
Dragoshi: "Ultra-near sighted? ...Or ultra far-sighted?"
Alexia suddenly makes a lunge for the hand.
Dragoshi: "...Are squirrels black and look like claw-WOAHLY damn."
Metal Man: "I can only see things when I activate my full cybernetic implants. I turn them off when I'm driving, though. Can't drive when I see everything."
Dragoshi: "...I see."
Metal Man (GM): *Clicks a button.* "Ah. So you aren't green and a lampshade, Dragoshi."
Dragoshi: "Can't you at least keep them partially on?"
Wario: "Let me give you a picture..."
Dragoshi: "When, yanno, you're driving?"
Alexia then tries to... bite a f'ing chunk off of one of Dragoshi's fingers.
Dragoshi: *Tries to jump away before that happens.*
Metal Man (GM): Wario hands Julian an image of Retz with a machinegun and a bunch of swirly-eyed Toads wrecking one of his banks.
Alexia just winds up crashing to the floor.
Wario: "They said they were gonna recreate some sort of old business. I decided to move here. Retz can't hide on space ships, after all!"
Waluigi: "But there are... no customers! Waaaaa!"
Dragoshi: *Walks over to Alexia again, and tries to pick her up.*
Wario: "Customers Schmustomers. I'm in it for the insurance money!"
Waluigi: "But you have no insurance."
Dragoshi: "...I'm confused now."
Wario: "...Well, at least I have my castle."
Waluigi: "Mario stole it, then named it 'Mario Land.'"
Alexia shakes her head violently and looks up with a more focused look in her eyes.
Wario: "What? Why didn't you tell me?"
Alexia: "...The ride's over, right?"
Dragoshi: *Trying to get said Alexia back up on her feet.* "Yea."
Waluigi: "...You dimwit, you were busy stealing from pirates."
Julian: "...I gotta have a long talk with my Director of Marketing."
Alexia: "Oh, good."
Dragoshi: "Thank goodness, huh?"
Wario: "Oh, right."
Alexia passes out in peace.
Dragoshi: "Yea... Oh, man."
Wario: "I still have the pirate gold... oh... you're still here. Uh, for the official part of you coming here... You can all invest your gold here!"
Dragoshi: *Facepalms and sits next of her, trying to think of a way to wake her up.*
Julian: "Don't see how wreckin' the competition, however effective, is MARKETING."
Dragoshi: "Yea."
Wario: "Ten cents to the coin, once every one of those missions you do. Minimum investment 100,000 coins. You must notify me 5 missions in advance whenever you wish to withdraw it, so I can check for... oddities."
Dragoshi: "...No, no. Too messy."
Wario: "Also you can borrow up to 10 times the amount you've invested once you have an account, but if you fail to pay me back... you know me."
Dragoshi: "Anyone got a bucket?"
Wario: "Here." *He gives Dragoshi a bucket with a purple 'M' on it.*
Dragoshi: "Preferably an empty one."
Douglas taps his chin.
Wario: "Just don't toss it at anyone."
Douglas: "I wonder how trustworthy you are."
Wario: "More so than creeps with swirly eyes who destroy things."
Dragoshi: "...Thanks." *Takes it, and tidal blasts it till it's full of water, then let's loose the water, NOT THE BUCKET, but the WATER in it at Alexia.*
Metal Man (GM): The water splashes Alexia.
Dragoshi: *hands za bucket back to Wario.* "Here's your bucket back."
Douglas: "So is there an interest rate?"
Alexia: "Yaaa!"
Dragoshi: .oO(Talk about eerily convenient.)
Wario: "10%, like I said, per mission, assuming you invest 100,000 or more."
Dragoshi: "Glad to see you're awake." ^^
Alexia scrambles to her feet and looks around wildly.
Dragoshi: *Gets up, and dusts himself off.*
Alexia: "Oh man water douse bad run..."
Wario: "50% interest per mission on withdrawals. I really, REALLY don't like giving money. To anyone."
Waluigi: "No one will invest if you do that, though!"
Wario: "Talk to the bucket." He hurls it on Waluigi's head.
Metal Man (GM): Waluigi begins wandering around, bumping into things.
Dragoshi: "...I see why you told me that bit of advice. Oh well. Sucks to be him" :/
Wario: "I'm also saavy as to who has money on this planet... they invest here first. If you... *ahem* ...slip me some cash... I could tell you."
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(How much or should I ignore him?)
Alexia: "...WHERE did that water come from?!"
Dragoshi: "...Yo." *Gives peace sign.* "You were unconscious. Also, you have some bleeding ya might want to take care of."
Julian: "How much?"
Alexia: "...YOU did that?! And I thought I could trust you."
Dragoshi: "You were unconscious, okay!?"
Douglas coughs. "I'll bite. I've got 200,000 coins to deposit into an investment fund."
Alexia: *eye twitch.*
Dragoshi: "And it was either that or I pull a cliche out of my hat! Or try one of my inane ideas!"
Wario: "About 10,000 coins... oh, yeah. I made a mistake there. 50% per mission on loans. Withdrawals take 5 missions to process, but no interest on them."
Alexia takes a few long, deep breaths.
Dragoshi: "And, trust me, a bucket of water sounds a lot better than being used as an albatross dance floor when ya think about it." >_>;; *Sighs and walks away.*
Alexia: "...Why did you forge the insurance on this place?"
Julian flips Wario the 10k. "Talk."
Wario: "Let's see... Rathos Lell has a huge amount of money. He says he gains it from bounties."
Alexia turns around and looks through the hole in the wall.
Wario: "E Li Three deposited 31415926535897932384626433832795 coins too..."
Alexia: "...Man. Talk about tire tracks."
Julian: "He's also fuckin' insane. Both of 'em."
Dragoshi: "...Yea."
Douglas: "Ooom... Bounties! We should find some Bounty Boards."
Wario: "George Robotnik deposited only some. He said it was the remnants of the Genetia Treasury. Metal Sonic deposited a number of coins, some strange objects, and also a Slasher."
Dragoshi: "...As fun as that would be, we have evil to kill. ...Where'd he get the Slasher?" ?_?
Wario: "Apparently he won it in some contest, or something."
Alexia: "...Isn't that one of those razor boomerangs?"
Dragoshi: .oO(Some contest? Couldn't be the CAL. That went defunct. Then what...) "Think so..."
Wario: "Besides that, there's one person I'm SURE you haven't seen yet."
Dragoshi: "And, that is...?"
Wario: "This weird-lookin' guy." He shows an image of a man with a monocle and top hat arriving in a ship of old design.
Alexia: "...I know that guy!"
Dragoshi: "...Huh." .oO(Hmmm.)
Douglas coughs, holding two large sacks, 100k coins in each.
Wario: "Said something about how its hard to get food around here due to most of the planet being destroyed, then went to... I don't even know where he went, he vanished into some portal. Said he was looking for 'food.'"
Alexia: "He was on that game board! Um... oh yeah. Mr. Monopoly!"
Dragoshi: "..." *Facepalm.*
Wario: "Mr. Monopoly? ...He was pretty weird looking."
Metal Man (GM): Wario takes the cash and sticks it into a box, and writes 'Douglas' on it.
Douglas blinks. "Wait, that's your security?"
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Hmmm... we MIGHT have saw someone like that minus the ship. ...Maybe... Nah.)
Wario: "Your deposit is noted."
Douglas: "A box?"
Wario: "Not just any box."
Metal Man (GM): He opens it again, revealing nothing inside.
Douglas blinks.
Dragoshi: "...Niiice."
Wario: "Waluigi designed it. Nobody thinks its secure. But the way to open it is secret and known only to me and Waluigi."
Alexia: "...How hard is it to open a box?"
Dragoshi: "..."
Alexia: "I mean... y'know, it's a box."
Dragoshi: "Not to OPEN the box, but to get it's CONTENTS. ...Ugh."
Wario: "Well, find out yourself." He closes it, then points to it, motioning to Alexia.
Alexia takes the box and tries to pull the lid off.
Metal Man (GM): Alexia opens it. Nothing inside.
Wario: "You'll never find the coins. Heh heh heh."
Dragoshi: "...Well?"
Alexia, displaying an astounding lack of sense, puts her head in the box.
Metal Man (GM): Alexia puts her head in there. ...It's stuck.
Dragoshi: "...Ya sure that's the right thing to do?"
Alexia: "Aaack!"
Wario: "...Those boxes are not meant to be used like that."
Dragoshi: "...Did you make them out of the same material as the bucket?" >_>
Waluigi: *Takes off bucket.* "Be careful! It could possibly decapitate her!"
Dragoshi: "...Ah man." @_@
Wario: "No, I mean they're not large enough to do that with." *Tries to pull Alexia out.*
Julian: *Waits for the idiocy to end...*
Metal Man (GM): He succeeds in pulling off Alexia's shoes.
Dragoshi: "...Need some assistance?" >_>;;
Alexia: "...I really hate myself right now."
Dragoshi: "...Oh, sod it" *Tries to help with what little strength he has.*
Wario: "You do it. My liability insurance is printed on saltine crackers."
Dragoshi: "...saltines?"
Wario: "...It saves money that way."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi pulls, but Alexia is still stuck.
Julian: "Try settin' the box on fire."
Dragoshi: "...Damn my lack of physical strength!"
Alexia: "Julian, you're not helping..."
Julian: "...Wario, can I talk to you in private?"
Darkdata: "Ah yes, my belief in karma is reassured! You ok Alexia?"
Alexia: "I'm killing you as soon as I can see you, Darkdata."
Dragoshi: "...Seriously. I need some gaw damn HELP here."
Wario: "Yes. Far away from this hive of people stuck in boxes."
Metal Man (GM): He walks into his office.
Darkdata helps Dragoshi.
Julian walks after him.
Metal Man (GM): [||||||||||||||||||||] FULL SYNCHRO. Alexia is pulled out of the box. Meanwhile, Wario sits in his lavish office.
Alexia: "Owww..."
Darkdata: "I got you out, still want to kill me?"
Dragoshi: "..." *Holds out a hand.* "Need help?" >_>;;
Harnit just sits in the limo and watches the insanity..
Alexia: "No, I'm okay. ...Can I see the box again?"
Douglas: "So, Waluigi, will I be able to check my account summary via the Dex?"
Darkdata: "... I think now... not."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Definitely not."
Julian takes a seat in Wario's office, then leans forwards, clasping his hands together and putting his elbows on his knees. "First off, I wanna apologize for Retz runnin' you guys offa Nintendus. I never intended for my Director of Marketing to do that."
Waluigi: "Yes."
Alexia: "But I didn't find out the secret!"
Wario: "That's ok... you guys are better investors than... those snooty rich people."
Douglas thanks him and goes into the limo, and buckles up prematurely.
Dragoshi: "I think it's supposed to be that way, Alexia."
Waluigi: "The secret is very hard to discover."
Darkdata: "We are not having your arm come off."
Dragoshi: "Or head."
Alexia: "C'mon, give it!"
Darkdata: "I mean, if you wanted to break the secret, all you have to do is detect the stronger parts of magic on it."
Dragoshi: "But..."
Darkdata: "However, no magic is that precise."
Dragoshi: "What if it DIDN'T use magic..."
Darkdata: "It's a box that can move gold around at will."
Alexia makes a grab for the box.
Darkdata: "What do you think it uses?"
Darkdata grabs Alexia.
Dragoshi: "...Simple. Interdimensional technology." :p
Darkdata: "Get back here."
Julian: "Secondly, I'd like to talk about... a partnership. I'm not necessarily buyin' you out, jus' that I've got a couple ideas an' no place to use 'em 'cept here. So I'd like to buy a co-controlling share of yo' stock. Me an' you run this together, ya here? What's the cost?"
Alexia ducks under the grab and leaves Darkdata overbalanced. "Yeeha!"
Wario: "Buying me out would be impossible. A partnership might be desirable, though..."
Alexia grabs the box and runs.
Dragoshi: *Makes a dash for Alexia.*
Darkdata: *Seal the box to the floor!*
Wario: "...But you'd have to get Waluigi's approval. We co-run this business."
Darkdata: "Arrg!"
Julian: "Like I said, I'm not buyin' you out. I'm buyin' myself in."
Alexia dispels the Seal and keeps running while pulling the lid off.
Dragoshi: *Continues chasing Alexia.*
Julian: "You, me, an' him all have an equal say in runnin' this place if this deal goes though."
Alexia flips the box upside-down and shakes it while still running away.
Dragoshi: *Alexia will prolly' get caught seeing as one of the FASTEST QUESTERS EVAR is chasing her.*
Darkdata: "Alexia get back here/Before you get your head caught in there!" *Call "Item" darksong.*
Editor's Note: Why didn't they just let her decapitate herself with the box if she wanted to die so badly? :p
Wario: "Okay... you'd just need to buy some of mine, and some of Wario's, so we each have 1-third. Deal?"
Alexia: *thinking.* "Uh-oh, he's gaining..."
Julian: "That's the basic idea. Deal." *handshake.*
Darkdata: *Ker Pull.*
Alexia gets the box ripped out of her hands and skids to a halt.
Julian: "How much?"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia has the box in hand but realizes something is wrong with her idea.
Dragoshi: *He should've caught up already. He has 20 speed for crying out lou-CRASH.*
Metal Man (GM): She stole the front of the box.
Alexia: "HEY! YOU!"
Metal Man (GM): Not the box itself, which was... bolted onto the wall rather heavily.
Dragoshi: *Crash,*
Metal Man (GM): Crash indeed.
Alexia: "Hey, this isn't a box. ...Oh well." *dashes at Darkdata.*
Dragoshi: *Crash into Alexia, seeing as Drag was chasing her.*
Alexia: "HeywaitDRAGOSHIST--" *CRASH.*
Darkdata: "... The only way this could be more chaotic, is if the witch released her flying zebras."
Wario: "Hm... 1 million coins. It's a very pricey stock."
Douglas sits next to Harnit. "So... kid, how are you?"
Alexia winds up getting her skull bashed on the floor. Again. "...Ooh, colors..."
Julian: "..."
Harnit: "Feeling sick after that car ride..."
Dragoshi: *Drag winds up getting the same...* "Owww... My head." *Sits back up.*
Douglas nods. "I went through a heater..."
Alexia gets back up dizzily. "Box?"
Darkdata: "No."
Dragoshi: "Nope."
Alexia: "Box."
Dragoshi: *Gets back up a little dazed as well.* "...Still want the button?" ?_? *Pulls out the 4 button.*
Alexia: "... BLITZ!"
Dragoshi: "...wut?"
Alexia makes a dive for Darkdata's legs.
Dragoshi: *Makes a dive for Alexia.*
Darkdata: "Alexia if you go for the box, I will make you dance the-- oh crap it all!"
Dragoshi: *Yanno, to stop her.*
Wario: "It used to be 10 million. Then Retz blew up our original bank."
Alexia, unfortunately, forgets that the floor is slick marble. "Uh-oh..." *WHAM.* She slides directly into a wall.
Dragoshi: *As does Dragoshi.*
Darkdata: "Ah... Karma, how I love thee. Though what Dragoshi did I will never know."
Dragoshi: *Crappy german voice.* "...I did nuthink!"
Metal Man (GM): Wario waits for Julian's response.
Leo: *suddenly wanders next to Dragoshi and pokes him.* "Hello."
Dragoshi: *Normal voice.* "I'm just dragged into this chao-Hiya." @_@
Alexia: "I'm starting to enjoy this..."
Julian: "I've got 912k. Maybe we can talk this down or substitute somethin'."
Dragoshi: "...Why's that?"
Leo: "So, what's going on?"
Alexia gets up and runs in a rather twisty line towards Darkdata. "The colors!"
Dragoshi: *Pursues Alexia.*
Darkdata: "Alexia, stop or I will make you dance."
Douglas mutters and unbuckles and exits the limo.
Leo: *watches Dragoshi chase after Alexia.* "Yeeeeah..."
Alexia: "BOX!"
Douglas: "Waluigi, could you get my money back from that girl, and keep it from them?"
Darkdata: "... Chaos Dance!"
Wario: "912k will be enough for me. I can eat the losses."
Dragoshi: "...Why am I even bothering now? What a drag..."
Waluigi: "Waaa! The secret is she never even got it!"
Leo: "What's with Alex?"
Metal Man (GM): Waluigi reaches into another box and opens it, taking out the money.
Alexia trips and faceplants.
Douglas: "But the BOX. .. What..."
Waluigi: "The money is never in the same place twice."
Douglas: "They are connected? Risky."
Dragoshi: "She's gone stir-crazy over the box..." *Skids.*
Douglas shrugs.
Alexia: *legs twitch spastically.*
Leo: *gives Alexia a confused look.*
Dragoshi: "...THANK YOU for ending that insanity, Waluigi." @_@ "...I hope."
Darkdata: "Or, you can't fight mentally due to the colors..."
Douglas: "Ok, well then, maybe you could keep that girl from being so juvenile?"
Alexia: "...box..."
Leo: "I'm gonna... yeeeeah."
Dragoshi: *Tries to stand in the way.* "And I'll stand in her way." >_>;;
Douglas: "Pills, maybe?"
Julian: "You got a deal." *Julian reaches into his back pocket, takes out his wallet, and takes out his Sawyer Savings debit card, sliding it over to Wario.* "It's got everythin' I got on it."
Darkdata: *Sits on Alexia.*
Alexia just lies there.
Leo: "What's with her?"
Dragoshi: "...Ugh." *Sighs. Sits down.*
Darkdata: "Calm down Alex."
Metal Man (GM): Wario takes the money, and nods.
Wario: "Our bankin' stuff will remain open for you... as will our decisions."
Julian: "Now that we got that outta the way... I got a few policy suggestions I'd like to recommend."
Metal Man (GM): Waluigi ensures the coins are safe.
Harnit looks out of the Limo... "Is it safe to come out?"
Wario: "Yeah?"
Dragoshi: "..." *Falls over on his back.* @_@ "I hope so."
Metal Man (GM): E Li Three wanders into the bank.
Alexia: "Zzz..."
Douglas: "She's still disturbing the peace... Or was. Oh well... OH GOD RUN!"
Leo: "..."
Dragoshi: "..." *Gets up.* "Hiya, E Li."
E Li Three: "Why look! It is a Dominoes Pizza Party!"
Douglas dives into the limo, slamming Harnit back.
Dragoshi: "...I wish." *He laughs.*
Harnit: "Gah!"
Leo: "Uh... huh?"
E Li Three: "Hello Goodbye, today Questers Retseuq!"
Dragoshi: "Though, I do have the Ace of dominoes."
Julian: "First, raise the deposit Interest rate to 20%. You raise the rate, you get more customers."
Harnit: "What's wrong now?!"
Darkdata: *Is still sitting on Alexia.*
Dragoshi: "...Which for some reason I haven't ever used."
Wario: "But we're nearly in debt as it is... you should see E Li Three's account."
Alexia continues sleeping and bleeding.
Dragoshi: "What does that thing even do anyway?"
Alexia: "Nnngh..."
E Li Three: "It causes Mach Pizzamen to attack you, good sir!"
Alexia: "Little... green..."
E Li Three: "EVIL Mach Pizzamen."
Douglas sighs. "E Li Three is here." *Ducking behind the windows of the limo.*
Darkdata: "I thought banks had a set limit for storage?"
Alexia: "Many..."
Dragoshi: "...Attack the user? Isn't that a little... Bad for the user's health?" *Pulls it out and reads it.*
Alexia: "EAT 'EM!" *bolts upright and falls back asleep.*
Julian: "I'm gettin' to that. To balance that, you institute a Deposit Fee, so you're actually makin' money. How many of your customers actually take out loans?"
Darkdata: "Large accounts had extra taxation, or no increase."
Harnit: "... Ooookay..."
Wario: "...Very few, most of the people here look to use the bank to store money they don't plan on spending anytime soon."
Dragoshi: *Reading the Ace of Dominoes card if it has anything interesting on it.*
Darkdata: "... hehehehe..." *Duct Tapes Alexia to the floor.*
Julian: "So that's why you implement the Deposit Fee so you actually take in income, clear? Third, lower the Loan interest rate to 'bout... 20% so people actually take out loans once in awhile."
Metal Man (GM): It says 'For Emergency help, Call 1-800-PIZZAAA.'
Dragoshi: "...Why are you duct taping her?"
Darkdata: *Gets up.* "Now I don't have to sit there anymore."
Dragoshi: "...oh."
Alexia slowly wakes up and realizes something is not right here.
Leo: "So she can't get away?"
Alexia: "..."
Dragoshi: "Well, I call naught it for explanations."
Wario: "...I'll think about it. Right now I can't think, because there's an unholy amount of noise in the main room."
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH.*
Leo: "Not it."
E Li Three: "Oh, so that isn't a cardboard cutout!"
Alexia rips off the duct tape telekinetically and stumbles over to the limo. "..."
Dragoshi: "..." *Puts the Ace of Dominoes away.*
Wario: "They're causing property damage by jus' breathing, at this rate."
Leo: "Oi, there she goes... somehow."
Alexia: *looking in the mirrors.* "Since when was I a redhead?"
Dragoshi: "...Hey, E Li. What's the least deadly, most effective headache meds you have?"
Harnit: "Ummm... Greetings."
Julian: "An' I got a whole 'nother thing for Insurance, but we'll talk 'bout that later."
Dragoshi: *Walks over to Alexia.* "Red? Fuh?"
Harnit scoots away from the crazy Alexia.
Dragoshi: *Guesses that Alexia's bleeding again, huh?*
E Li Three: "Liquid Plutonium."
Alexia rubs a finger on her scalp. "Oh. Blood."
E Li Three: "It leaves you feeling Cheery and Noble!"
Leo: "...Eww."
Dragoshi: "...Ehhh. I'm gonna stick to my normal kind, then. ...Ouch."
Alexia: "...Hey, wait a minute, why is a limo in this place?"
Julian: "You want me to go take care of 'em?"
Dragoshi: *Pulls out some gauze.*
E Li Three: "Now in patches! Large patches!"
Wario: "Yes, please."
Leo: "You might wanna dunk your head in water to get the blood out."
Alexia: "NO!"
Julian: "Be right back." *Julian gets up, and heads out into the main lobby.*
E Li Three: "DANGER: Some people report seeing three mile cooking islands after using it."
Dragoshi: *Tries to wrap the gauze over Alexia's head, since it's yanno, bleeding.*
Leo: "Whoops..."
Alexia scrambles away from Leo.
Dragoshi: "...Three mile wha? Wait!"
E Li Three: "Nothing, nothing at all." *Takes out some radioactive liquid and drinks it.*
Dragoshi: "Come back here! I need to apply this to your forehead!"
Julian: "HEY!" *Julian yells to get everyone's attention.*
Leo: "I forgot the water was one of her 'Do Not Press' buttons."
Dragoshi: *Chases Alexia, gauze in hand.*
Harnit peeks out of the Limo..
Julian: "Everybody stop what yo' doin' NOW."
Dragoshi: *Skids, stopping.*
Leo: *stops doing nothing.*
Metal Man is busy writing mustaches on the walls. "Huh?"
E Li Three: "Okay." *He stops drinking plutonium.*
Alexia: "Oh, hi, Julian. When did you get here?"
E Li Three: "He rode a giant beetle."
Metal Man (GM): *Rimshot.*
Julian: "If none'a y'all got business to be done at this here establishment, I'd appreciate it if you left the buildin' 'fore you tear it down."
Alexia: *slowly looking at the hole in the wall.* "...HOLY SHIT, DID WE DRIVE A CAR INTO THIS PLACE?!"
Leo: "..."
Dragoshi: "Yes."
Julian: "An' Metal, move yo' limo. The lobby ain't a parkin' space."
Alexia: "...Oh."
Dragoshi: "Which is why Metal shouldn't drive. Ever."
Harnit: "... Do we have to drive home with Mr. Metal Man?"
Alexia: "Okay."
E Li Three: "I did have business, but then the John Dandy Comedy Routine wandered in and became obnoxious." He points at the Questers.
Dragoshi: "...Need gauze?"
Leo: "I'm guessing that Alex has short-term memory loss?"
Metal Man: "Yeah! Time for more driving!" *He leaps into his limo.*
Dragoshi: *Holds up some gauze to Alexia.*
Douglas talks inside the limo. .oO(Heheh... Julian's yelling at them... Maybe I could have silenced the room... oh well.)
Julian: "Okay, EVERYONE 'CEPT E LI GET OUT."
Dragoshi: "...Metal. Let me drive this time."
Leo: *hops in the limo.*
Alexia looks at Julian, then shrugs and walks out.
Metal Man: "Are you sure? The controls are geared for left-handed people named Aribar."
Dragoshi: "'Cause I don't want another incident like thi-...Yes. I'm sure."
Metal Man: "...Wait a minute... Aribar didn't have an arm..."
Dragoshi: "'Sides, I'm left handed."
Leo: "..."
Douglas gets back out of the limo. "Hey, I decided I wanted to deposit some more money into the account, is that okay, Waluigi?"
Metal Man: "...Okay. But then I'm going to do this."
Dragoshi: *Enters limo, taking the driver's seat, if allowed.* "...Do wut?"
Metal Man takes out his Star Board, and stands on it. He does a Silver Surfer impression.
Dragoshi: "...Just get in the limo!"
Alexia looks around somewhat bewilderedly outside.
Metal Man: "Never!" *Flies off through a hole on his Star Board.*
Douglas has 300k more coins in a few more bags to give to Waluigi.
Leo: "..."
Dragoshi: "...Ah man."
Julian: "..."
E Li Three: "I shall drive!"
Dragoshi: "...Might as well open up an account before I leave. How's 300-NO."
Metal Man (GM): E Li Three gets in the limo and sticks a finger into the cigarette lighter socket.
Harnit: "..." *Gets out his Dex and asks it for a warp home.*
E Li Three: "BZzzzzzzttttttttttttt!!!!"
Dragoshi: "Seriously. How's about 200k sound for opening up an account?"
Metal Man (GM): Wario walks out.
Leo: "...Can we go now?"
Alexia: "Gee, look at all the stuff..."
Wario: "It sounds... great."
Douglas coughs, first in line before Dragoshi. >:o
Julian: "Fine, fine, fine, jus' deposit yo' money an' get 'fore you knock out a support beam or somethin'."
Dragoshi: "...Okay." *Does so.*
Alexia heads back in.
Douglas mutters something about cutting in line.
Alexia: "Oh, good, a ride home."
Dragoshi: "...ANYWAY."
Alexia gets in the limo.
Dragoshi: *Gets in the limo, shotgun this time. He puts on his seatbelt.*
Harnit: "If you want to... Not go crazy again... I suggest walking home."
Douglas deposits the 300k more and then goes into the passenger seat, and buckles.
Alexia: *blankly.* "Crazy?"
Leo: *after getting inside the limo.* "Ohhh, comfy."
Harnit nods.
Leo: *buckles himself in.*
Alexia patiently waits.
Darkdata: *Gets in and buckles up.*
Dragoshi: *So glad he's buckled up.* >_>;;
Leo: "So, where are we headed to now?"
Douglas is in the back, buckled.
Harnit: "Oops..." *He buckles up... with two sets of seatbelts.*
Alexia: "So what's gauze? It sounds tasty!"
Dragoshi: "Medical stuff used to cover up REAL nasty wounds."
Leo: "Like... death?"
Dragoshi: "...No. Like... Bleeding."
Alexia: "Oh, right, the blood..."
Leo: "Ohh, that makes more sense."
Metal Man (GM): E Li Three is driving. He waits... waits... waits for anyone else interested in leaving to get on... carefully starts the vehicle and begins flying it smoothly straight to HQ?
Alexia: "Can you put some on?"
Dragoshi: "Sure. Once we get back home. ...Also, this makes no sense. How are you such a good driver, E Li?"
E Li Three: "That's interesting. These controls are upside-down. Just like my memory circuits!"
Dragoshi: "...oh."
Leo: "..."
Metal Man (GM): The limo is actually safe to not be buckled up in now. It moves smooth as glass.
Dragoshi: "..." *Tilts his head back with a @_@ expression on his face.*
Alexia: *That's good, because I didn't. Again.*
Leo: *unbuckles himself.*
Metal Man (GM): This limo is pretty expensive... cigarette lighters... cigarette lighter lighters... Electric hands that crank manual crank windows...
Harnit hrms... And bops Alexia on the head. "Nature's Growth!" *Healage!*
Alexia: "YEEEEOW!"
Metal Man (GM): And also cup cup holders.
Dragoshi: "...That's why I suggested gauze." >_>;; "...Wow. Talk about an outlandish waste of money, huh?"
Leo: "...Yeah... I could have cured her and saved her from that bonk on the head..."
E Li Three: "It says here Oak programmed this vehicle to detect almonds from miles away."
Alexia whimpers.
Leo: "But... I didn't."
Dragoshi: "...Almonds?"
Harnit: "Err... Oh, right... Pain..."
Dragoshi: "Why would Oak do that?"
E Li Three: "It also has pineapple, pecan, but not orange radar."
Dragoshi: "No orange!? What a rip-off."
E Li Three: "Oak apparently did it for an experiment? Don't ask me. I should be driving through boulders!"
Dragoshi: "...Oh."
Harnit scoots to the other end of the Limo... Not wanting to be near Alexia's wrath...
Dragoshi: "...Oak really needs to find a better way to spend his free time then." >_>;;
E Li Three: "Let's see... this navigational navigation system is rather helpful."
Leo: "If you're in so much pain Alex, you want me to put you out of your misery?" *starts to take out his sword.*
Alexia recovers just enough presence of mind to flip Leo off.
Leo: *chuckles.* "Just kidding."
Harnit: "It couldn't have hurt... That much."
Dragoshi: "...Leo, don't. Just, don't. I've got gauze, and you've got healing magic. We could prolly' make use of both." >_>
Leo: "You want me to heal her now?"
Dragoshi: "...I just need something to keep the gauze from falling off though."
Harnit: "... I could use some of my magic to clean the blood."
Leo: I still have some duct tape?"
Alexia: "..." *She tries to open a door and kick Leo out.
Dragoshi: "...Well I could-Woah! Calm down! We won't use duct tape."
Leo: *grabs in to something.* "WHAA!!!"
Trigger: *on.
Metal Man (GM): The door does not open.
Dragoshi: "...Damn. What can we use to keep the gauze from falling off? Got anything, E Li?"
Computer: "For maximum safety, door opening has been disabled while in flight."
Alexia: "Of all the times to have damn locked doors..."
E Li Three: "Cement by the handful?"
Leo: "Thank god..."
Alexia tries to break a window, then!
E Li Three: "Oh, wait. You must pass a test to obtain it... find all of the paperclips in the seat cushions."
Metal Man (GM): The windows are made out of ULTRA CARBON.
Dragoshi: "..." *Paperclip huntin'!*
Harnit pokes Alexia... "Are you okay?"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia's hand is ULTRA DAMAGED.
Alexia: "GAAAAH!"
Leo: "...What about a pin to keep the gauze in place?"
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds seven paperclips.
Dragoshi: "That might work."
Alexia: *Now I have five broken and dislocated fingers!*
Dragoshi: "Okay, that's seven down..."
Leo: "And I think she just broke her hand..."
Metal Man (GM): Apparently they fall off of reports Metal stores in the limo.
Dragoshi: *More paperclip huntin'!*
Harnit smacks Alexia's hand. "Nature's Growth!"
Douglas mutters, and just sets up a wind vacuum around everyone but Dragoshi, Harnit, and E Li Three... and the limo's computer speaker.
Leo: "THE SMACKING ISN'T HELPING HARNIT!!"
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds the rest of them. Douglas finds, for whatever reason, he cannot fully vacuum Leo.
Dragoshi: "Found 'em!"
Alexia screams loud enough to be heard softly though the wind vacuum.
Dragoshi: "So, what do I win?!"
E Li Three: "Aha! So you have found them all. Here you go." He chucks a handful of cement to Dragoshi.
Leo: "...Owww... my ears."
Dragoshi: "...Thanks." *Takes it.*
E Li Three: "That should work. Or turn her into a statue."
Harnit: "Hey, it's healing magic..."
Dragoshi: "...I think this might be useful in other situations instead of healing..." *Carefully puts it away, if possible.*
Alexia is currently now in a fetal position on the backseat.
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi gains: Wet Cement.
Leo: *casts cure on Alexia's broken hand.*
E Li Three: "Wait, those paperclips might work."
Dragoshi: "...Perfect."
Leo: "Feeling better?"
Dragoshi: "And I have a lot of them."
Alexia: "..."
Dragoshi: *Keeps some of the 25 paperclips.*
Leo: "...What?"
Metal Man (GM): Metal is outside, standing on his board and flying alongside. He makes silly faces at the limo.
Dragoshi: *Makes comical faces at Metal.*
Harnit waves at Metal... And pokes Alexia. "Come on! Healing can't hurt... Too... Much..."
Leo: "...Metal's being stupid again..."
Alexia holds up a piece of paper she found in the back floorboards with "SOS" written in blood.
Dragoshi: .oO(Two can play at this game of stupid, Metal!)
Alexia: *waves the paper frantically.*
Metal Man (GM): Metal holds up a piece of paper which says 'I, Nodal, owe Metal 100 coins' and displays it back to Alexia.
Dragoshi: *Stops. Notices Alexia.*
Harnit pokes Alexia and says, "Cleansing Watter!" to get rid of the blood.*
Alexia: "...!?"
Metal Man (GM): Finally, the limo reaches the Q.S. Seeker.
Alexia: *SPLOOSH.*
Metal Man (GM): The car lands, as does Metal.
Dragoshi: *Pulls out a Dex, texting her.* "I'll be sure to get some gauze for that wound. Oh, and I have paperclips to keep it from falling off."
Douglas dispels the wind vacuums around the people who had then.
Leo: *mouths out.* "Finally, we're back."
Douglas exits the car, and enters the Seeker.
Alexia stiffens and curls up even tighter into the fetal position as the water splashes on her.
Leo: "...Idiot."
Dragoshi: *Gets out of the car, enters Seeker.*
Metal Man (GM): There's a lot of scuffling, and some moving around in the main room.
Dragoshi: "...Oh man. what now?"
Douglas: "I'm never going to get in a car with those people again..."
Dragoshi: "...But, first..."
Trigger: *gets out of the limo and follows Dragoshi.*
Dragoshi: *Looks at Alexia, holding up gauze and paperclips.* "...Gauze?"
Alexia: "..." *She nods slowly.*
Glyph: [Leviathan] "I can't kill anyone anymore! The world I grew up in is dead!"
Harnit quickly gets out of the Limo and flees..
Glyph: *Leviathan turns to the robot.*
Alex: "Calm down. A Quester cohort shouldn't be out to kill anyone who doesn't deserve it..."
Robot: "Yes, it is."
Dragoshi: *Wraps the gauze around the place where Alexia's wounds are, using the paperclips to hold the gauze in place.*
Glyph: *Leviathan says some things that are hardly pronounceable, and some that you could, but you probably would be censored for.*
Alex: "... Leviathan! Shame on you!"
Glyph: [Leviathan] "You know, if I had to choose between waiting around here in this dump and that cube I'd almost pick the cube!"
Dragoshi: "There ya go. Sorry I couldn't do that sooner" v_v;
Glyph: [Leviathan] "Hell, I would pick the cube!"
Alex: "Cube? What cube?"
Robot: "Now. Be quiet meatbag. Into the cube you go." He traps Leviathan within the Locos cube, using a little ruin miasma in the process. "Because I can do this."
Leo: "Well, feeling better Alex?"
Metal Man (GM): He takes the cube with Leviathan inside and begins shaking it. A lot.
Alexia continues shivering on the floorboards.
Alex: "Wow... That's amazing... may I see it, erm... Canti?"
Leo: "I'll take that as a yes."
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi succeeds in wrapping the gauze.*
Robot: "Yes." He hands it off to Alex.
Alex: *Smile.* "What is wrong with this man anyways? He seems to be multiple people in one body..." *Shake shake.*
Metal Man (GM): Glyph's body, for some reason, is still there. It falls down.
Alexia: *whimper.*
Robot: "Whoops. I broke the superfreak."
Alex: *Blink.* "You killed him!"
Metal Man: "This looks like a job for Dr. Mario!"
Dragoshi: "NO DOC, NO DOC."
Metal Man: *Warps out.*
Alex: *Hands the cube back off to Robot.*
Alexia: "!!!"
Glyph: *Hop stands up and rubs his eyes.*
Dragoshi: "...Run, Alexia!"
Leo: "Oh crap..."
Harnit: "What's... Going on?"
Metal Man (GM): *10 seconds later.* Dr. Mario appears. He looks at Alexia.
Alexia frantically tries to escape... and crashes onto the ground.
Dr. Mario: "It looks like Alexia has too-many-coins-itus!"
Dragoshi: "...Oh, man." *Facepalms.*
Alexia: "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Dr. Mario: "I-a must take them all!"
Dragoshi: "NO SHE DOESN'T!"
Harnit: "Ah... 'allo."
Alexia kicks feebly at Dr. Mario.
Dragoshi: "She has a bad head wound!"
Leo: *helps up Alex.* "RUN FORREST---ALEX RUN!!"
Dragoshi: "Anyone could see that!"
Dr. Mario: "Oh, that-a one."
Glyph: [Hop] "I came down with too-many-coins-itus once."
Dr. Mario: "Electro-shocktherapy!"
Alexia: "..."
Leo: "...You're ****ed now."
Dragoshi: "..." *Yells as he slams his head into the wall.*
Harnit pokes Alexia and casts more healing spells on her...
Alexia summons the last of her strength to give Dr. Mario a hard kick between the legs.
Metal Man (GM): Alexia hits... a cup?
Douglas backs away from Dr. Mario, and hides in his room, as Alex watches, curious.
Dragoshi: "...Ugh." *Stumbles and walks towards the others.* "...Sorry."
Leo: "..."
Dragoshi: "Snapped."
Glyph: [Hop] "Hey, wait a moment... you know that funny voice in your head telling you to destroy?"
Dragoshi: "Partially."
Dr. Mario: "Like I'd leave myself vulnerable to kicks like that, when-a dealing with insane patients?"
Leo: "Ehh."
E Li Three: "Ah, you mean Fred?"
Alexia: "Help me..."
Dragoshi: "You're lucky you didn't snap-Who's Fred?"
Glyph: [Hop] "Mine's gone now."
E Li Three: "Fred. He tells me to destroy things."
Dragoshi: "...Uhhh... I think I can take it from here?"
Leo: *casts protect on Alexia.* "Happy now?"
Harnit: "I think Alexia's dead..."
E Li Three: "But then Joe says to fix things."
Dragoshi: "...Listen to them both." >_>;;
Glyph: [Hop] "Maybe Fred and Leviathan should be friends."
E Li Three: "And then Ethel loses a ring inside a concrete barbecue."
Leo: "...Huh?"
Alex: *Concerned for Alexia, runs over to her and holds her up.* "What happened?!"
Glyph: [Hop] "They seem to share the same interests."
Dragoshi: "...Insanity, that's what."
Glyph: *Hop turns to Alexia.*
Dragoshi: "TOTAL INSANITY!"
Glyph: [Hop] "Did you dye your hair?"
Alex: "Well fix it!"
Robot: "Is the voice which says to destroy trapped in this cube?"
Metal Man (GM): He shakes the cube around.
Glyph: *Hop turns to Robot.* *Leviathan utters some more unintelligible things.*
Metal Man (GM): Dr. Mario then goes to Alexia and hits her with several multivitamins.
Glyph: *Hop looks at the Robot with wide eyes.* "Does that mean..."
Metal Man (GM): POW! POW! BANG! It harms Alexia, then heals her head wound.
Alexia jumps down, starts running... *CRASH.*
Alex: "Hey! Stop smacking her with giant medicinals!"
Leo: "Heh, do it again!"
Alexia: *And she slams straight into the side of the limo in her panicked state.*
Dragoshi: "..." *Goes off to pick her up.*
Dr. Mario: "Hm... I was right... mere vitamin power is not enough!"
Harnit: "Uhh... Watch out for the car parked there!"
Alex: "Why can't you just give her some rest?"
Dragoshi: "...Yea."
Robot: "...He must be inside the cube."
Dr. Mario: "There's no time! We must act quickly!"
Glyph: [Hop] "You mean it, you mean it?"
Leo: "I don't think he is a conventional doctor..."
Metal Man (GM): He takes out jumper cables and plugs them into the battery of the Limo.
Glyph: *Hop begins running in squares. It's like running in circles but more precise.*
Dragoshi: "...IT NEVER ENDS!"
Leo: "DEAR LORD!!"
Glyph: [Hop] "My head! It doesn't hurt anymore!"
Dragoshi: "...Oh hell."
Dr. Mario: "I must re-start the Alexia!" He plugs both leads into Alexia's ears.
Dragoshi: "...Restart the wha-..."
Alex: "Ahh! No!!" *dives for Alexia.*
Robot: "Even with these people going insane in the background?"
Harnit: "I think that's deadly..."
Metal Man (GM): *BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.*
Alexia: "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
Leo: *watches with popcorn.*
Dragoshi: "...This is not a scene."
Leo: "Yum... buttery goodness."
Dragoshi: "It's fucking ridiculous is what it is." @_@
Metal Man (GM): He zaps Alexia several times, then disconnects the jumper cables.
Glyph: [Hop] "You see what that is happening to that lady?"
Dr. Mario: "It appears I have fixed the situation."
Leo: "OHH, I bet that hurt!"
Harnit pokes Alexia...
Glyph: [Hop] "That is a lot like Leviathan punching you... with his mind."
Alexia: *Deep-fried Alexia, comin' up.*
Robot: "Yes. Dr. Mario is trying his best to kill her. I mean heal her."
Dragoshi: "...Aw man. ...I agree with your former word."
Glyph: [Hop] "I don't like being punched."
Robot: "I see. Must be like the hidden commands in my programming that compel obedience. So if he's in this cube, does it matter if I throw it into an incinerator?"
Glyph: [???] "Does that mean you're like Robocop?"
Leo: *Takes his now empty popcorn bucket and places it on Alexia's head.*
Alexia: *Well, she's unconscious now, that's for sure.*
Robot: "Possibly."
Dr. Mario: "Wait... she's not awake!"
Dragoshi: *Pokes Alexia.*
Harnit pokes Alexia. "Nature's Growth! Heal already..."
E Li Three: "Step aside, Duck Doctor."
Dragoshi: "...Dr. Mario."
E Li Three: "I shall heal her."
Glyph: [Hop] "I don't think he'd like that very much... and when he doesn't like things, he punches me. Hey, wait, who was that?"
Dragoshi: "How did you get your degree?"
Leo: "Poor Alexia, we bearly knew ye..."
Dragoshi: "...Wait. BETTER question."
E Li Three: *Takes out a hammer and begins tapping on Alexia's skull with it.*
Dragoshi: "Why are you even allowed to do medical practice in the first place?"
Glyph: *Hop looks at E Li Three.* "Somebody should warn that man."
Dragoshi: "...Huh. Didn't you do that before, E Li?"
E Li Three: "Oh, right." He takes out cucumbers and sticks them in Alexia's ears.
Dr. Mario: "Wolfman-a hired me!"
Alexia: *Ow, ow, ow, embarrassment, ow...*
Dragoshi: "...Uhh..."
Metal Man (GM): He's still wearing it.
Dragoshi: "...Why did he, anyway?" o_o
E Li Three: *Burns incense and dances around Alexia.*
Leo: *takes the popcorn bucket off of Alexia's head and refills it... with popcorn.*
Dragoshi: "...Mind if I dance with you, E Li?"
Harnit backs away from the sideshow.
E Li Three: "Yes. We must do the medicine dance!"
Glyph: [Hop] "I was once arrested by the fashion police. I think someone should warn E Li before they come for him too."
Leo: "Heh, I gotta see this."
Dr. Mario: "Wolf-a-man said I was the foremost medical-a expert in the land."
Dragoshi: *Joins in, 'cause he's, yanno, a pretty good dancer considering is dodging dance powers.*
Dr. Mario: "So I-a heal people with electric shocks ever since."
Harnit holds up a red feather. "I've got a Pheonix Down we could use..."
Dr. Mario: "I should heal you, too!" He zaps Dragoshi.
Alex gives a shifty eyed look. "I was never told the Questers were this crazy..."
E Li Three: "Somebody forgot to tell you? Then do not pass go."
Harnit: "This is... Just the beginning, Mr. Alex."
Dragoshi: "...Well, that was a fun dance."
Alex carries Alexia to her room so she can sleep.
Dragoshi: "Even though I got shocked in the end." *Helps Alex.*
E Li Three: "... Darn it... no more corpses to dance around."
Dragoshi: .oO(I'm gonna be drinkin' tonight. That's for sure.)
E Li Three: *He takes his hat and dusts it off.*
Dr. Mario: "I-a guess my work is done here!" *He leaps into a warp... with 10,000 of Alexia's coins.*
Dragoshi: .oO(I think I still have some of that stuff I horked from Gerald)
Leo: "Well, I'm gonna go back to my room, I'll see ya all tomorrow." *walks back to his room with the bucket of popcorn.*
Dragoshi: .oO(Well, more like Gerald's lab in Atlantis, and not from the guy himself)
Robot: "Well, Mr. Hop, I think that's been our dose of insanity for this evening. I believe it would be best if we discussed what to do with Levi elsewhere." He walks to another room.
Glyph: *Hop follows.*
E Li Three: "I think we forgot something."
Harnit sneaks away...
Metal Man (GM): *Julian is still at the Waluigi bank, with no way back to the ship.*
Dragoshi: *Walks back in.* "...Yes, E Li?"
E Li Three: "Somebody named... Joo Joo Gajoob."
Dragoshi: "...Huh."
Alex returns to the main room, bumping into Harnit on accident. "Oop! Sorry!"
E Li Three: "He... cut people with his hat. A hat of hate."
Harnit: "Gah! Don't give me away!" *Flees!*
Alex blinks, and looks into the main room.
Dragoshi: *Takes out a bottle of that alcohol he horked from Gerald's lab from Season 8* "...All I know is that I need a drink after all that inanity."
Metal Man (GM): *Interesting fact: Both Dragoshi and E Li Three have top hats.*
Dragoshi: "Good god, I'm a pack rat."
E Li Three: "I am too. In fact I pack rats into packs."
Dragoshi: "I have a broken cloaking device, stolen alcohol, this tophat, a tunic, and a lot of other stuff." @_@
E Li Three: *He drinks some more highly radioactive plutonium.*
Dragoshi: "Oh, and the Ace of Dominoes." *Drinks the stolen alcohol.*
Metal Man (GM): Its really old, and thus, most of the water has evaporated, leaving highly concentrated alcohol. It knocks Dragoshi over like a Mack truck.
Dragoshi: *Knocked over.*"Holy damn. ...This thing has REALLY aged." @_@
E Li Three: "...Gerald did always like his alcohol near-lethal." He wanders off.
Dragoshi: "...Why did I try drinking that again?" >_>;;; "I should prolly' water it down so it doesn't knock me over, like... WOAH."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi's breath smells like concentrated licorice.
Dragoshi: *Breaths into his free hand, and smells it.* "Phew! ...Meh. " *Closes it up, and wanders off as well.*
