When we last left our Adventures!

Puffball Commando: *tied up* PUFF!
Easy Puff Commander: I shall never talk! So just take it easy.
Tyroth: Any luck?
Verdant: The puffs are claiming diplomatic cover based on our treaties, and they might have a case.
Melog: The ninja is proving resistant to more standard and harsh interrogation techniques.
Elias: You're just not threatening him well enough. Let me show you how it's-
Elena: I got this.
Alison: No offense, but you don't put on the most threatening airs after serving our only cooperative secretive group tea and crumpets.
Agent 81: They are quite divine, by the way. *sips tea*
Elena: One try.
Alison: *shrugs* Go ahead.
Elena walks back and forth before their prisoners, looking them over. Stopping suddenly, she nonchalantly pulls out a dagger from nowhere, thumbing it.
Elena: Clearly you three have your reasons for keeping secrets. They have to be good to stay silent. I'm curious to see just HOW good. Maybe you're willing to accept death to keep that information from getting out. Commendable. Then again, maybe we, or in this case *I*, can give you a better offer. You tell us what we want to know, and you still exist as a species.
Puffball Commando: Puff puffpuff!
Easy Puff Commando: What she said.
Elena: We had the same difficulty with the roaches, if you recall. Do you see them anymore? DIDN'T THINK SO. You see, apparently I'm not in full control yet. Who knows what all I can do? Hidden somewhere is the ability to kill entire family lines. Maybe it's one in a million chance. Maybe it happens every time right now. I really couldn't tell you. Sort of a new form of Everchillian Roulette, except instead of a one in six chance of death, it's a one in an unknown number chance of genocide.
Melog: *scribbles down tentative rules for this new game*
Elena: *points at the puffball and easy puff* We whittled your populations down enough that by now you're all related pretty closely. *points at the ninja* For all we know you generic ninja are just clones. So...what will it be?
Alison: You are a terrible influence on her.
Elias: How is this my fault?
Melog: I don't see the problem.

ninja: I swear I don't know! We don't even get the briefings second-hand: a client contacts a representative, the rep contacts the master, and the master gives the mission to a dispatcher! We're not even a clan, just a bunch of semi-skilled salary people! (he calms down a little) I'm only even here because everyone else was injured on a big job in the tropics.
Blue: Yeah, they were hired to kidnap me. TIME wiped the floor with them.
Kay: Mostly Melog.
Agent 81: Ah, Discount Generic Ninjas. Ninjas at only half the cost and with none of the honor.
ninja: Should be "half the skill". I'll admit, we're discount for a reason.
Elias: Ignoring you already. (turns to the other two) So who else wants to talk?
"PUFF PUFF--" "So the Easy Emperor was like 'My easy throne ain't easy-enough'--" "--puuuufffff puff puff--" "--so we were putting our brains together, but they just made a brain demon which tried to claim it was His Noodly Greatness--"
It takes a while, but eventually you get that the Easy Puffs ran across some hominid* guy in a pointy hat with a long beard on a section of the Ghostnet called the World Wide Spiderweb while the puffballs got an anonymous letter the only distinguishing mark being an over-sized stamp advertising the Cliff of Fabulous Shopping.
Jim: The WWS and CFS, eh? That means Urth. And the only people who can get communication this far out of Urth are--
Agent 81: --wizards and sorcerers.
Elias: Oh, yes, this is fabulous. Why is it every time Winters' is the focus of an adventure it involves magic people?

Elias: So now what then? We get onto an airship and pick up the bunny before she gets anywhere? She can't have gotten far.
Mrs. Day: Actually, about that-
Mr Day: -Miss Moon is actually quite adept at Aerial Spells of Flight and Levitation.
Verdant: Which in normal speech means she can fly with the help of a focus. Say a broomstick or whatever
Alison: Crud, that means she might be a bit hard to catch up to.
Verdant: Exactly. She still need to sleep, so she can't outrun us forever. We might have to prepare for a few days' trip before we leave though.
Winters: It's an adventure !
Elena: Wait, what should we do about the Day couple?
Elias: *Looks at Winter's parents for a second* Eh, they are probably mostly harmless
Tyroth: That's what you said during the Ursa VI incident too
Elias: Well besides the rabid bites thing it was a mostly harmless critter.

However an hour later finds our heroes nearing the Lune Shoujo campus in Crosstown.
Elias: Why are we not already going after that magic bunny?
Kay: Where, exactly, would you like us to go? Even having to travel through nhihn like choke points the Mirrorskies are endless. We need to narrow down the search direction as much as possible, and that means figuring out who she might be working for or any likely places she'd want to hide.
Elias: I thought Agent 81 and that Jim guy were going to find that stuff out?
Alison: You said you didn't trust them because they were "secret police".
Elias: I'm not going to worry about secret agencies that employ people who make Mikhail and his cronies look like master spies.
Elena: Everyone calm down: Elias is just jealous because Jim gets to be Alison's love interest.
Elias: I am not jealous!
Verdant: I agree full with Elias and think we should turn around right now and sail off to some random corner of the Mirrorskies.
Alison: Your m--
Verdant (has her entire arm wrapped around Alisonís head): Don't even say that! She can hear even oblique references to her and turn up like she can teleport!
Kay: Isn't that what you just did?
Verdant: AH! (is now a quivering ball bulging under the back of Blue's shirt)
Blue: Green, you know know I love slime massages, but in public is a real mood-killer.
Alison: If she's really that bad you have to confront her. If you don't you're going to be afraid of her your whole life.........I don't even know how long you can live.
Blue: Neither does she.
Winters: While my research on the subject is not yet complete and reliable records are difficult to come by before the founding of the Saint Sapphire archive, the oldest known being of Verdant's type that can be confirmed is (holds up a card with a shade of yellow on it) of the city of Saewel--
Winters: --at 729 standard years.
Alison: ..............You mean--
Verdant (hissing): Don't say it!
Alison: You mean she's the oldest shapeshifter alive?
Verdant: Don't know. I didn't ask. I don't care. I just want nothing to do with her.
Elena: Is she really that bad?
Blue's face is completely neutral.
Lord Day: Ladies and Gentlemen, we have arrived.
The group found themselves in front of a sliding gate in a black-painted iron fence behind which......
......was what would have served perfectly as an oversized Japanese high-school.
Alison: Um...wow......Definitely wasn't what I was expecting.
Lady Day: I'm sure Lune Shoujo's subdued style is a far cry from what you must have been used to at Sol Senshin. But I am sure a magical girl of your talents will quickly absorb their method. With your fate level you are sure to figure out a combination power at the most crucial moment. A Sun And Moon style. Winters will be the envy of everyone the in the family.
Kay: They have absolutely no idea why we're here, do they?
Blue: We still have to get in.
Tyroth (quickly): Not dressing in drag.
Elias (quickly): Not riding a summoning spell cast by lonely teenage girls.
Kay: Uh, we've got enough women this time. I'm sure we can let you two do something else.
|Rampant||Feb 20 2012, 09:04 PM Post #20|
Melog: *Starts handing out wands*
Alison: Should I even ask?
Kay: Probably not
tied up and gagged students who were returning from a field trip when Melog mugged them: Mmmmmph! Mmmmph!
Teacher who had been leading the trip: *still out cold from one of Hope's tranq darts*
Bushes they're hidden in: ... (what do you expect it's a plant)
|SilvercatMoonpaw||Feb 22 2012, 09:15 PM Post #21|
Alison: No disguises.
Elias: Why not?
Alison: (gives him a Significant Look)
Elias: Right, no disguises. No acting. Not needed.
Lady Day: Oh dear: I do believe I detect the beginnings of a love rivalry.
Kay: Do you have some other plan? They aren't going to let us just walk in and ask to see their student roster.
Verdant: Hi! We're a team of adventurers here pursuing a thief who may be posing as one of your students. We need to see your student roster to confirm this.
panian prairie dog secretary: Sure thing! (begins fiddling on his computer)
Verdant: Wait for it...
panian prairie dog secretary: Hey--
Elias: *sucker punch*
Tyroth gingerly slides the unconscious secretary into a hidden corner of the registrar's office while Verdant takes his seat.
Verdant: Ha! He logged into the system before his smarts caught up with his brain.
Kay: You mean you planned this?
Verdant: The best plans are those no one ever sees coming. (types rapidly) That's funny: Moon isn't listed here. Let me do a cross-reference.......No, there aren't any lagomorphic panian students here with white fur.
Tyroth: Someone deleted her profile?
Verdant: Or it self-deleted.
Elias: That's the problem with computers: always changing their programming and trying to kill everyone made of meat.
Verdant: Not like that: you can set up electronic programs so that they delete themselves at a specified trigger, usually an amount of time. Melog, plug in over here and scan for traces of a wiping program.
Melog commando-sneaks over to the desk (despite standing right next to it) and inserts her head-cord into the correct slot.
Melog: I somehow now feel unclean.
Verdant: High-school computers will do that to you.
Melog: Scanning..............fragments of wiper program found lodged in anti-viral software.
Kay: And all this means for those of us who don't speak spy?
Elias: She's not here! She's somewhere else completely and now we've just wasted time!
Melog: Update: receiving call..................My lady has just been contacted by Jim to inform her that CONTROL sensors picked up unauthorized use of flight magic near a local high-school shortly after Moon escaped our custody.
Verdant: At least we won't have to deal with any magical girls.
Kay: Obvious ones, anyway.
|Rampant||Feb 23 2012, 12:32 AM Post #22|
Melog: Analyzing fragments of wiper program storing results.
Verdant: If we run across software from the same manufacturer we'll know. Might be useful if our rabbit uses hacks from a specific source or if she does her own programming.
|Kaizer Ryu||Feb 23 2012, 11:47 PM Post #23|
Elena: Oh, thank goodness. I can't wait to get out of here.
Blue: Any particular reason?
Elena: I and legions of magical girls do not mix well. The assimilating AI is still running and I can't figure out how to shut it off.
Alison: Safe to guess your father "forgot" to put in an off switch?
Elena: I doubt he'd forget something like that.
Elias: Yeah. He does that on purpose. "Why go to all that trouble to provide a means for disabling the WMD to your enemies and deprive them the chance to create one themselves?"
Alison: Your childhoods. f^(ked up.
Elena: So forgive me if I want to leave before I get diabetes from the magical love and justice vibes. The last batch is still choking up my databases. And you have no idea how unsettling it is to talk about myself that way.

Captain Lovelace: A tall muscular man dressed in fatigues and brandishing several guns appears holding a bunny by the ears. "Is this the bunny your looking for?"
Kay: That's not a magical bunny.
Captain Lovelace: "Who said anything about a magical bunny. Its a d@mn bunny! Let's eat!"
Elias: "..and who are you again and why are you here?" he says looking perplexed and annoyed.
Captain Lovelace: "You mean, you haven't heard of me? I've heard so much about you. I'm surprised you haven't heard of me..." the soldier looks upset at the lack of recognition.
Elias: "Have you heard of... What did you say your name was?" *puzzled look*
Captain Lovelace: "Captain Lovelace! The second most wanted man alive!"

|demonfey||Feb 25 2012, 03:24 PM Post #25|
Tyroth: I thought that was me by virtue of being accessory to Elias's shenanigans.
Locust: I thought-wait, are you gonna eat that?
Captain Lovelace: The bunny?
Locust: No, the tommy gun. I always wanted one.
Captain Lovelace: ...I'm saving it for later.
|SilvercatMoonpaw||Feb 25 2012, 04:56 PM Post #26|
Blue: Also never heard of you.
Verdant: Same here.
Captain Lovelace: (suddenly crouched down in a corner with his back to them while a darkness hangs over his head) It's true: I'm second-best, and no one even cares. (turns suddenly on-fire with righteous fury) That is why I have determined that Elias the Villainó
Tyroth: *sigh* Not another one.
Captain Lovelace: ómust take me on as his apprentice!
Elias: Oh, you want some of (brain catches up) what?
Captain Lovelace: (on his knees in pleading pose, tears streaming down his face) Please! I have made my life out of being wanted. But I never get noticed! The only way to achieve my dream is to train at the feet of the master. (he bows with his face to the ground) Please, Master, teach me! Grant me your wisdom!
Elias: ....................................... Why am I always the one getting servants? Right then, maggot, listen up! If you're going to learn the ways of the villain then you are going to have to do everything. I. SAY!
Captain Lovelace: Sir, yes, sir!
Tyroth: Wait, you're really going through with this?
Elias: Did I give you permission to speak, second-in-command?
Tyroth: Looks like he's gone deeper off the end.
Elena: It's probably the only response he understands when faced with military.
Elias: Right! First thing we are going to do is get you some new clothes! No one likes soldier outfits except in wartime!
Verdant: Hey, we have that school to investigate.
Elias: You go on ahead. WE have some shopping to do!

Captain Lovelace: "...Who is the second in command? " Lovelace whimpers as if his honor is being thwarted. "Surely it is me and not this pseudo-villain who stands before me," he says with more of a valiant tone in his voice, referring to Tyroth. Lovelace kneels down and kisses Elias' boots. "Oh thank you so many times for taking me on as your loyal apprentice!" he places the loaded tommy gun in his pack. there is real risk he may shoot himself in the bum.

|Cattish guy with sword whose name no one even recalls anymore: HEY! Forgetting me is one thing! Replacing me is another!|
|SilvercatMoonpaw||Feb 25 2012, 10:19 PM Post #29|
Elias: You are my servant, not apprentice! Now do your job and find us a clothing store!
Blue: Elias has become drunk with power.
Elena: Considering what happened last time he was drunk we may want to stage an intervention.
|Kaizer Ryu||Feb 25 2012, 10:35 PM Post #30|
Elena: Speaking of intervention, I should go with you.
Tyroth: *looks slightly sick* ...really?
Elena: I can haggle like no one's business!
Kay: Be that as it may, your fashion sense isn't very...what's the word...good.
Kay: Right now. By which I mean at any point in time.
Elena: Oh, come on, it's not that bad...
Verdant: Your last shawl was a portal to a Great Old One, and do I have to remind you of the Night of a Thousand Screaming Napkins?
Elena: I said I was sorry for that! I won't make him anything, then.
Tyroth: This is a...uh...a guy thing. Yeah. It's one of those unspoken rules that needs to be observed.
Tyroth: I stand by my potentially ridiculous claim.
