  1. "What is today's date, Mr. Takasugi?" "January 5th. The first Monday after the New Years and the 2nd year anniversary of my wedding with Kotarou." Shinsuke leaned back in the chair he was sitting in and looked up at the ceiling. A small fan was spinning, causing the smoke from his pipe to disperse around the room. "Adjusting back into society after playing Wurvivor has been easier than I really thought. Anyway, I have a feeling this isn't the reason you brought me here today is it?" Shinsuke sat upright and smirked at the person across from him, holding a notebook. "It's about Okinawa." Shinsuke looked down at the floor and snuffed his pipe out. He placed it on the desk that was in between him and the person who was interviewing him. The room was small, a bit cluttered, but it seemed organized specifically for them. "It always comes back to that day, doesn't it? Why don't you just ask your cousins? They were there that day. Joe dealt a lot with Sensei that day." Josh rubbed his hand on his chin, and tapped his pencil against his lip. Shinsuke had looked back up and made eye contact with Josh. "You were also there, Shinsuke-san. In fact, you were fairly close with Utsuro during that week. I'm just trying to understand all that happened there and what happened with that Jebediah person. Joe and Steve are counting on me." Josh said, with determination. He knew this was the case, the thing that would make him just as good as a detective as his cousins. He needed to prove himself. "Well, like I said Josh, I was busy with Wurvivor so I don't see the point in interviewing me about that Jebediah person. Why don't you speak with the people that were there like that bald bastard or that caterpillar brained idiot?" Shinsuke said, beginning to stand up. "W-wait Shinsuke-san!" Josh put his hand on Shinsuke's shoulder, sitting him back down in his seat. "This has to go back deeper than just the past few weeks. This is bigger, bigger than you and I may even think." "I mean, how can I say no to that face?" Shinsuke smiled as he sat back down. "I'll tell you what I know about Utsuro, but you have to do a favor for me and Honey." Josh reluctantly nodded as Shinsuke began to recall about that Valentine's Day week and the tragedies that unfolded. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Cut! Alright that was a nice job Tachi-san! We'll keep in touch." the actor bowed at Guano as he stepped out of the LilyMu Studios. Ozu was pacing behind Guano, mumbling to himself. Guano turned back to face the producer, "He was alright...I just don't really know if he was the right fit Ozu." Ozu's head began to produce steam, but he pinched his nose and let out a sigh. "Guano, you know how stressful this whole ordeal has been for me, for my business. Yes Man." Yes Man stood to attention, "Please call Yorozuya..." he said, sitting down in a chair next to Guano. Yes Man saluted and hit the phones. The other actors were sitting in chairs and reading the scripts for the re-casting. Lily sighed as she put hers down. "I already miss him Mitsuki. I know he had do some stupid thing regarding the comic book, but then he leaves us! No fair, I miss my Obby-Bear." Lily said frowning. Mitsuki patted her on the back while Raj scoffed. "GOODT RIDDENS! That camera hog has taken MY spotlight for far too long. It's time for Supercodplayer1995 to FINALLY TAKE HIS PLACE AS LEAD ROLE!" Guano shook his head while the girls were grieving. Guano was flipping through the papers and list of actors and spotted who was next. "S? They just go by one letter? What kind of pompous..." but before he could finish his sentence the door to the studio was kicked in, landing next to Ozu who was sitting at the new bar he installed in the studio since he wasn't in a kid's show anymore. "Hello LilyMu. I want to introduce myself...well it seems I already have with that door." Sougo began to walk on the set when he paused and grabbed my hands, twisting them so that I typed "S" instead. Owie. "So, you're S. And just what makes you special. Your resume lists only one stage play...directed by...oh OH NO. NO NO NO, YOU'RE NOT HIRED, PLEASE LEAVE THE STUDIO!" Guano hopped out of his chair and began to push S out of the door, but the door was blocked by someone standing in the way. "My, my, my. ICHIRO! LONG TIME NO SEE!" Guano sighed, "Douman." Douman pushed S and Guano back into the studio. "Douman? COME ON BABY! Call me D-Man like you used to in our college days! God, how long has it been?" Douman scratched his chin. "It's been years Douman. Anyway I am not calling you D-man and you aren't allowed in the studio. You've been on the list for years." Guano said, trying to push back, which caused Douman to push Guano back instead of S. "ALRIGHT SO IT'S GONNA BE THAT WAY HUH?!" Guano yelled. "YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT IT IS PIPSQUEAK. THIS IS THE BEST ACTOR ON THIS ENTIRE PLANET AND YOU WILL HIRE HIM." Douman yelled back. "YOU'RE A HACK STAGE DIRECTOR WHO THREW HIS DEGREE IN THE TRASH!" Guano retorted. "OOO HOW DARE YOU ICHIRO, AFTER ALL ME, MY CLAN, AND THE KETSUNO CLAN DID FOR YOU. AND I'M BANNED FOR WHAT? WORKING FOR THAT NITWIT PRODUCER'S WIFE?!" Douman shoved Guano which caused Raj to hold Guano back and S to hold Douman back. Ozu stood up from the bar and walked over to the two who were spitting at each other, calming them down with the wave of his hands. "So, you are the long rumored Shirino Douman. I figured the time would come when you would walk into my studio. Kiyoko has long talked about you, and how you've adopted many of her comics into stage plays all across Tokyo and Edo and beyond. But, of course, I refuse to attend them based on principle. However, you have respected my wishes for years not to tread on my territory...until today. What makes this man special enough for you to break that agreement, Shirino?" Douman calmed down and took his hat off, brushing his shoulders with it. "He has IT, Ozu-san. Trust me on this, there is something in his heart that is burning. Something that has been eating at him, that he needs to express it. The eyes tell the story of the soul, and his eyes tell me a story that everyone, even to the highest heavens, must hear." Ozu nodded as he scratched his chin. "This is it Shirino. Your one opportunity to prove me right and find my new leading man." Ozu extended his hand, to which Douman firmly gave a handshake to. S bowed to Ozu as he began to prepare to rehearse the scene with the rest of the cast. Guano sighed as he handed the script to S, but he denied it. "I need no script. It will come to me naturally." S said, as Guano just slouched down in his director chair. "Alright everyone, places. And, action." Guano said in a rather monotone voice. S stepped onto the set and lifted up a skull made to resemble Oboro, even having the banter face and began to perfectly articulate the script without even giving it but a mere glimpse. Guano sat there, mouth agape, as the TheSpian began to out act, began to do stunts that were not asked of the other people auditioning, and leaving the co-stars in the dust with his emotion. As the scene ended, Guano stood up and gave a rousing ovation, as did the production team surrounding the cast. Ozu walked up to S and extended his hand, "Sir, you are hired. Welcome to LilyMu." ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "Ane-ue, can you lend me some cash?" Shinpachi was sitting at Otose's Bar with his sister, and Kagura. Kagura was downing some rice while Tama was sweeping up the bits and pieces that were falling on the floor. "Sorry Shin-chan! I'm using the rest of this money to open our dojo back up. I have just enough after helping Otose-san rebuild her snack bar." Otose blew a puff of smoke at the comment. Shinpachi looked dejected, since he was really looking forward to buying that new Exploding Feminism x Otsuu-chan's ***cking Cool Live Album. Kagura let out an Earth shattering burp as the sliding door to the bar opened up. Gintoki and Sadaharu walked in, Gin looking rather tired as he just woke up. He walked over and sat at one of the booth tables across from the bar, "Gintoki-sama, is something the matter?" Tama walked up to him and placed a hand on his shoulder. "The Old Man called me. He's asking us to do a job for him." Gintoki said, as Tama sat a glass of water in front of him. "What's so bad about that Gin-chan? We always help that Old Geezer, and he pays well." Kagura said. Gintoki looked up at her, "Do you know how much less screen time those Lily-Idiots get? We're doomed to be stuck as side-characters. He even talked to me about that coconut head getting hired to his show. The most invisible Shinsengumi character through the entire series is getting a push." Gintoki pinched the bridge of his nose. "Why can't that hideous being Emiko call us or something. Someone who's had ample screen presence." Shinpachi chimed in, "Well Gin-san, we're obligated to help our friends, even if it means sacrificing our time!" Shinpachi was a fool to think this. Gintoki moved his gaze to the glasses talking nonsense. "I know what I have to do, as much as I don't like it." Gintoki stood up and sighed. "Oi, Sadaharu, take us to that maximum security prison. You too, brats." Sadaharu arf as Gintoki climbed on top of him. Shinpachi and Kagura shrugged and hopped on. "The Old Man can wait, I need to consult with a few people first." Yorozuya began to head towards the prison that was just outside of Edo Castle. They were cleared inside, as Kagura flashed a picture of her and the princess doing patty cakes. The 4 of them walked into the prison, and eventually made it to the very back. They passed by Nobu-Nobu, who's sentence had been reduced after good behavior and his efforts in the Shinra Attacks. He was staring at a picture of a giant truck in his cell, not paying attention to the Odd Jobs as they walked past. Eventually, they reached the final cell, where a harmonica could be heard, "Life in the brink isn't one fit for a hard boiled detective like me." Kintoki could be seen facing the back of the cell. Gintoki turned to the other cell and saw Haji and Sunny sitting on their bunk beds. "Hello! You must be Pako! I only really know about you because Enshou works with you from time to time." Gintoki put his head down into his hand seeing the creation of that squirmy eyed weeny. "Uh, yeah. I, uhh...you're not that Globby Princess are you?" Gintoki asked. Sunny shook her head, "I'm simply a representation of her brought to life through Jebediah's subconscious and Enshou-sama's extremely powerful will!" she said, smiling. Gintoki gave her a dead fish-eyed look as he turned back to Heiji, who threw his harmonica into the concrete, causing it to bounce back and smack him in the face. "I'm glad we don't have to worry about that soft-boiled pest anymore. Yet, us heroes are stuck behind bars as if we are hardboiled criminals. Quite the opposite, we should be hailed among the greatest." Heiji said as blood dripped to the floor from his nose. "Gin-san, how are these 4 going to help us in any way? Aren't we supposed to go and help Ozu-san with something?" Gintoki put his finger on Shinpachi's lips. Kintoki turned from his wall facing position and showed a grill popping out of his chest with eggs cooking on them. "OI HOW IS THAT USEFUL? WHY DID GENGAI-SAN MAKE THAT?!" "It's simple Shinpachi-san. Gengai-san always updates me with the latest techs whenever I visit him. I try to stop by at least twice a week, now that I'm fully employed or in prison. He's told me that he is proud of me, proud of the man...robot that I've become. He even complimented me on my sick abs." Shinpachi's face grew dark as his abs were not abs at all, but a toaster that had toast popping out of it. "Good thinking Kintoki, toast and eggs are the ultimate hard-boiled pairing. It's right up there with a glass of Camus and a beautiful woman." Heiji grabbed the toast from Kintoki's body and took a huge bite. Haji stretched her arm out from her cell to reach for some eggs that fell off Kintoki's chest. Kagura picked them up and ate them herself. "Gin-chan, this is getting us nowhere! We're just going to get caught up in their hi-jinks like last time!" Kagura said, spitting the eggs out on Kintoki's face. "No, this is exactly what we need Kagura," Gintoki took his sword out and slashed the bars of the detectives' jail cells. "Now, we can get to work." "OIII NOW WE'RE JUST BREAKING THE LAW?!" Shinpachi yelled. "It's not like we haven't done it before Patsuan." Shinpachi shrugged in defeat. The detectives all scrambled (like eggs!) out of their cell and thanked Gintoki. "Alright! Now we can head to the Old Man's place." Yorozuya and the Hard Boileds began to head for Tokyo. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ "Oi, Tetsu." Tetsunosuke was awoken by the sound of his Vice Chief knocking at his door. He was bandaged from the accident at the terminal. Him and his brother were released from the hospital a few days ago and returned to their duties as police officers/chiefs. It was strange though, for Tetsu, as Isaburo had invited him over for dinner just two night prior. It felt that he was finally getting closer to his brother, and breaking down the barriers that were built so long ago. Tetsu managed himself up, grabbing at his waist after saluting Toshi at the doorway. "Y-yes Vice Chief?" Tetsu said, a little nervous. Hijikata took a drag from his cigarette, putting it back in his mouth. "Could you please come with me to Kondo-san's quarters." Tetsu gave him a puzzled look, but followed his superior through the hallways leading to their leader's room. Tetsu was fiddling with his fingers as Hijikata opened the door and ushered Tetsu into Kondo's room. Kondo was sitting in front of a table with a paper and quill sitting on top of it. He gestured for Tetsu to sit down across from him as Hijikata stood in the doorway, smoking his cigarette. "Am I being..stripped of my badge?" Kondo shook his head and extended his hand. Tetsu noticed he was holding something in it, so he cupped his hands underneath Kondo's. Kondo dropped a patch into his hands. Tetsu brought it closer to himself and examined it, "But...this is Okita-nii-san's Captain Badge..." Kondo smiled at Tetsu as he looked up from the patch, "I could never keep a short leash on that kid. He never would admit it, but I knew how much this organization and these people meant to him. However, these past few months I've noticed just how distant and alone he seemed. As if, he needed to take a new direction. I sat down with Okita yesterday, thinking he would just go over the daily happenings of the Shinsengumi. However, he handed me his resignation-" 'I hope you understand why I'm stepping away Kondo-san.' the flashback showed Kondo looking down at the papers with a more serious face than usual. Kondo sat the papers down and brought Sougo in for a hug. Okita looked surprised, but accepted the embrace, 'Of course I understand. I've realized how unhappy you've been, and I'm always here to help you. If leaving us and starting your life over makes you happy, then I will always support you Sougo. However, I don't want to see that frown ever again! So cheer up, and tackle the world. Be who you desire to be.' the flashback ended as Tetsu clinched the badge. "And I want to assign you as the new Captain of the 1st Division, Tetsunosuke. After your brave heroics and handling of the Shinra's invasion, Toshi wanted me to promote you from his assistant, to being a Captain. I always received a text from someone who wished to remain anonymous, backing up your promotion. And, I too believe you have the heart of the Shinsengumi, and are more than qualified now to lead our main division. Congratulations!" Kondo gave Tetsu a hug, who was now visibly crying. Hijikata smiled through his cigarette smoke. ------------------------------------------------------------------ "And, that's pretty much it about Utsuro. Honestly, it was a tough time for me and Kotaro. Our real first fight happened on that island." Shinsuke said as Josh was jotting down notes in his handy dandy notepad. Josh looked up at Shinsuke and extended his hand, "Thank you for your time Shinsuke. I think the only thing I need to do now is visit Okinawa myself. It's a shame though, that I couldn't get an interview with Oboro." Shinsuke shook Josh's hand as they both stood up. "Everyone's been clambering for that jizz head ever since he left. Although, he would be the one to try and talk with about Okinawa. He was by Sensei's side the entire time, and he killed him. Did you talk with that Captain? I heard he was there too." Shinsuke said, remembering what had happened at the Renho's Baby Shower. Josh nodded, "I've already spoken to him about his time with Utsuro." the scene flashed back to a couple of days prior on Burei, "Welcome to Extended Hanukkah, cherry boy." Enshou was wearing a XXXL sized sweater over his usual robes. Josh nervously laughed as he spotted the Captain standing by the punch bowl talking to one of the lower ranked Enshou Minions. Josh walked over to Stephen and greeted him. "Hey Josh! What brings you to the comics?" Stephen said, giving the kid a hug. Josh smiled as he began to speak, "Well, Joe and Steve tasked me to do a big investigation. They want to know more about Jebediah. I figured I would talk with you about it since you were close with Utsuro and you faced Jebediah." Stephen looked at his arm, which was still in a sling from the last few fights he had, both in the courtroom and the sub-conscious. "I think we should take this conversation out of his sight, he'd get pretty pissed off if we started talking about it at his party." Stephen said, pointing at Enshou who was hammering shots. Josh and Stephen made their way out of the party and began to discuss Jebediah. Josh jotted everything down, all the events that happened from Sweetcheek's perspective. Then, they got to Utsuro, "Well, unfortunately I wasn't there at Okinawa. He ordered me to go to Edo, as I assume he knew I would stop him from resetting the universe again. Or maybe he sent me there because he I knew I would meet Enshou. I never really doubted Utsuro's intuition. But, I'm starting to question his methods about why he kept Jebediah's presence from us. Did the God's put a gag order on him? And what about Oboro? It all doesn't really make sense why Utsuro wanted to keep Oboro's powers a secret from himself. And now, Oboro is gone. Gone to meditate and hone his newly found powers." Josh looked up at Stephen, "Was there anyone else there with Utsuro on Okinawa?" Josh asked. Stephen put his head down, "Well, you killed one of them," Josh sported a somber look on his face, remembering the first real test of his powers against Kaname. "Hitsugi...has also passed." Stephen looked dejected thinking about his old friend who sacrificed himself but a mere few months ago. "The only other being there that's still in the comics are Shinsuke and Poe. If I were you, I would at least talk with Shinsuke first, and then if you can try and communicate with Poe. I'm not sure how that bird is handling his owner, his best friend being gone. But he's been with Utsuro and Oboro for centuries. He's seen everything, but alas is only a crow. I suppose if you can find what's left of the Naraku, you may get some information from them. But I've heard they've long since disbanded and scattered across the universe, especially now that the Tendoushu was murdered by Jebediah." Josh gave a somber, but hopeful look. "I'll speak with Shinsuke when I get back to Edo. I'm not really sure how I can meet with Poe, but I'll try." Stephen put his hand on Josh's shoulder, "I believe in you Josh. We may not be blood related, but your family is my family. I'm so proud of you three boys." Josh embraced Stephen, the old man accepting the hug. "You'll make your cousins proud." the two stood there for a minute, soaking in the moment before the flashback faded away. Shinsuke nodded and began to head out of Josh's office, "I'll help you out with that bird. I think what you're doing is going to be beneficial to us all in the long run." Josh lit up at Shinsuke offering to help him, "I-if you don't mind! That would be extremely helpful. I'm just not sure how to...well talk to birds." Shinsuke gave him a...wink? Maybe he blinked, I wasn't sure since he only has one eye. "Don't forget that favor either Josh. I'll be counting on you." Josh nervously smiled as he watched Shinsuke walk out of the office and close the door behind him. Josh sat there and opened his notepad, 'I still have to talk to a few people, even if they weren't involved with the fight on Okinawa.' Josh pulled up his contact list, 'Doesn't hurt to try I suppose.' Josh thought to himself as he clicked the call button. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The scene cut to a different office, one that had a paw print on the glass of the door. Joe was sitting at his desk, doing some paperwork to pass by the day. His work was interrupted by a knock on the door. Joe stood up and opened it, being met with two police officers. "Are you Joseph?" Joe was starting to get worried, "Is Steve OK? He went out for groceries, and now you guys are here..." the cops shook their heads, "There was no accident sir, but your house has been broken into. Neighbors reported it. We haven't investigated it thoroughly just yet, we just wanted to come and let you know. Just to confirm if anything is missing." Joe's eyes widened as he grabbed his coat and dashed out of there with the officers. The three of them arrived at the house, Joe noticing Steve's car was parked outside of the house. Joe ran from his car and met up with his brother who looked distraught, "It's...it's gone Joe. Someone stole the book again." Joe looked mortified, as he knew Josh was in there. "Do you..." Joe nodded, "I think I know who. The only question is, can we find him." Joe said, rubbing his chin. The scene shifted to the clouds above and came down on a man wearing a hood, holding the comic book in a bag around his shoulder. He was sitting at a library of unknown location, "Dylan, had secured the comic book once again. He had begun to hear voices ever since he left the small island in the Triangle. A voice with a very distinct British accent telling him to get the book. Perhaps, all those purple crystals that Dylan stole while on the island were coming in handy after all." a librarian walked up and shushed Dylan as he smiled to himself. The scene faded to black as it zoomed in on his bag with the comic book inside. "Slowly but surely~" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ "Eh Yukes, seems yous been workin ovatime dis week!" Valentino leaned on Yuka's desk as she was filing some paperwork, "There's been a lot of back up since my absence Fratello." Yuka said, focusing on her work. "All dat work is no good for yous and your mental state Yukes. Let's go out and get dinna together. Just me and yous. Skels here has a date tonight with Mutsu, so you knows I got nothin betta to do." Yuka was still focused on her work. "I'm sorry Valentino, but I have all this work." she stated again. Valentino gave her a slight smile, and grabbed the paper she was working on. "Hey! Come on now Val, I don't have time to mess around." she said stubbornly. "Yous comin to dinner with me and dats final. You gotta lightin the load on yourself. Take a break, for my sake." Valentino said, placing the paper back on the desk. Yuka sighed as she pushed her self from the chair. "Fine, I'm only doing this because you're guilt tripping me. You have a lot of work to get done when we get back, because I'm not losing work time because of this." Valentino smiled as he patted Yuka on the head. He began to walk from her room when he turned back in her doorway, "Yukes, I've been thinkin about the past few weeks. There's been a whole lotta confusion, and a whole lotta people gettin hurt. Just...appreciate da little things in life sometimes. I don't want yous to just work forever. I want you to live life an experience it a little. I'm sure everyone here will undastand Yukes, they love ya here." Valentino said, smiling at his godsister before leaving her in her room. Yuka shifted her eyes back to her desk where there was a picture of herself, Roberta, and Valentino together in a bright park on Globberious. She smiled as she held the photo up to her face, before placing it back down. "Maybe I should take it easy..." Yuka lingered on that thought as she got ready for her dinner. TBC
  2. I haven't cried while watching a wrestling match in a long time, and tonight was the night that broke that streak. So unbelievably proud of Edge and Drew. So fucking cool. Best Rumble in history.
  3. "..." Ungyou was standing at the opposite end of the man-cave, stirring a pot of his world famous chili™. Billy's cigarette hung from his mouth as he lay on the couch, staring at a blank television screen. The ash from is hitting the freshly cleaned carpet that Ungyou painstakingly worked on the past two days. Gedomaru blinked at the God who looked completely burned out, but you couldn't tell because of his sunglasses. "This isn't like you at all. Did that posh asshole really beat you that bad?" Gedomaru was there to drag Billy through Hell the previous day. His body was mangled, his energy nearly drained, and he was in constant pain. Billy raised his hand and took the cigarette out of his mouth and blew a small cloud of smoke from it. "I'm stuck down here, utterly defeated. My brother had his entire Altana force sucked from him. Suave is all alone. I doubt Pops is gonna do anything, stuck up asshole. Making US do everything. What the hell can I even complain about, I rebelled against him. Jazz always told me that I was Pop's favorite, but I never believed him. It's whatever, really." Billy flicked the cigarette, landing into an ashtray laying on the coffee table in front of him. Gedomaru sighed as she stood up from the skull throne she built for herself. "Where is Wormy Mommy? You haven't told me or Ungyou-sama anything." Gedo stood over the God as Billy tipped his sunglasses to meet her gaze. "I don't think she's going to be joining us much longer Gedo. She shouldn't have even been in Hell for the first place...but what can you do. Father decides where the dead rest, and I suppose he put her in my hands. I think she's atoned enough, don't you?" Billy tipped his sunglasses back down as Gedomaru looked dejectedly down at the (very clean!) carpet. "But, that doesn't mean she can't come to visit us if we need a 4th Go Fisher." Gedomaru smiled at the God who matched hers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ "Why is Jackie here? Although I am grateful!" Stephen stood up and dusted off his coat while Enshou laid on the mattress, staring up at the Captain. "So, you're just going to get up and leave after we're both laying on a mattress? You've failed me once again Sweetcheeks." Enshou stood up and walked past Stephen down a tunnel that was past the dragon that Jackie was sparing off with. "Shouldn't we help him?" Stephen asked as a breath of fire hit Jackie's shield. Enshou turned back and shook his head, "Simply a distraction. I know his games all too well. The dragon is a ploy and pseudo final boss before the actual giant big boss, the dragon's owner, fights us." Enshou said, clicking FLTBC on like a light bulb to see down the dark tunnel. She giggled as her hair glowed. Stephen looked back with worry, but decided it was best to press forward. "And what of the crystals the dragon was guarding?" Stephen asked. Enshou turned back and narrowed his eyes at the Captain, "I don't need crystals to defeat a loser like BOD. I'm half God, half machine. Nothing can touch m-" but as Enshou spoke he was knocked to the ground by a loose rock falling from the ceiling, followed by a posh laughter. Jackie's sword broke as the dragon roared with a mighty voice. The Joui rebel dropped his shield and put his fists up, "I guess I'm going to have to take you down the old fashioned way." the dragon flew into the cave Jackie had emerged from and stared blankly at him. Jackie started to hit the Jebby Dragon with a floury of punches, each one leaving an indent on the face of the Jebby Dragon. The dragon roared as Jackie charged up his fist and hit a huge uppercut, sending the dragon through the roof of the cave. He looked as his glowing fist and jumped up to meet the dragon in mid-air, spending it spiraling down into its own crystal hoard with a massive axe-kick. Jackie landed with grace and saw as the dragon stirred in the green and purple dust. He noticed that the crystals had reverted into liquid and seeped into the ground. He raised an eyebrow as the dragon flew up and knocked Jackie back into the cave with a whip of its tail. Jackie struggled to his feet as the dragon stumbled into the cave. Jackie charged up his legs and hit consecutive blows to the dragon's stomach, and eventually, the dragon collapsed after a huge round house kick to the head popped one of its eyes out. Jackie bowed as the dragon laid their, but looked up to see Jebediah with a blonde wig standing in its place. "Congratulations! My, you certainly put up a great fight against Jebby the Dragon! Well, here I am! The daughter of the Elderly Man! Ooo~ Thank you brave traveler!" Jebediah extended his hand and booped Jackie on the nose. In an instant, Jackie had completely been incinerated, nothing but a cloud of red mist fell to the murky cave floor. Jebediah straightened his cravat humming along to the Overture. He looked down at the now empty crystal pile as it stocked back up. "My oh my, it seems the adventures left the treasure hidden by the great Jebby Dragon behind! What a shame, they could have really used that. No worries, it's only a side quest. They're heading straight for the main quest." Jebediah snapped his fingers and vanished from the cave. Enshou had picked himself up at this point, the three continuing adventures not knowing the fate of the Joui fighter. "This cave system seems endless! I just hope the other 3 are okay." Stephen said, feeling around the walls as they walked. Enshou shot daggers at his Captain, "Oh, and who are these THEY?!" Enshou said with emphasis. "Well, I came in with Umibozu, Heiji, and Oboro, Sir." Stephen remarked. Enshou reeled back, "Yuck, bunch of old weirdos. Not that you're an old weirdo Captain, but you just can't trust them. Or, I can't trust you with someone as rich as the bird brain. He might try and sweep you away from my crew with his stack of greenbacks." Enshou said. "Aren't you more rich than him, Sir?" Stephen asked. Enshou chuckled, "BUT OF COURSE! I do rule an entire planet." Enshou said. "Co-rule!" FLTBC chimed in. Enshou pulled her hair and turned her light off. The three stumbled along until the tunnel opened up to a cliff side view of a large castle with dazzling lights and fireworks going off. Their concentration was broken by an old man walking towards them. "Lord George! Uhm...well I can explain..." Stephen said fumbling his words, "Greetings again young travelers! Thank you again for rescuing my daughter!" Stephen looked confused, but Enshou stepped in, "We glitched his game and skipped past the part about saving this old cahoot's daughter. I've speedrunned this RPG dozens of times." Enshou said, patting the Old Man on the shoulder. The old man grabbed Enshou's hand and twisted it. "GAAAAAAAHHHHHHH SAVE ME SWEETCHEEKS, HIS OLD MAN STRENGTH IS TOO MUCH!" Stephen separated the two rather easily, Enshou hissing at the old man. "That castle right there! Lord Montagu, the owner of the giant crystal hoarding dragon sits upon the throne of the Castle of Jebedius! From all of us in poverty in the small village past the caves, we wish of you travelers to topple the Great Montagu! He! Is the only one who stands in the way of our village flourishing and thriving! Please, won't you help this elderly man again and defeat the Lord?" Enshou slapped the old man as hard as he could, sending the elderly man tumbling down the cliff. "What the hell was that for Sir?!" Enshou looked at the Captain, "He's not real, he's just an NPC inside this big idiot's subconscious. Come on, let's end this charade." Enshou marched forward towards the castle with Stephen and FLTBC following closely behind him. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "This...this just isn't enough power Roberta!" Suave was panting as he played his sax to near exhaustion. Roberta frowned at the Dream Catcher, it was glowing, but it had not yet grown to the full potential she wanted. Suave sat down with the angels all patting him on the back, wishing him a job well done for all he could do. "If Big Brother Jazzy was still here..." Suave wiped his face with his hand at the thought of his brother, who was sitting on Earth in a fishbowl within Yuka's bedroom. Their Father had snapped him back to the realm of the living, where he would remain. Roberta looked down at Suave, "Well, why don't you ask Billy to come up here?" Suave looked up at her and took his sunglasses off, "Father would not allow that, not after what he did last time." Suave countered. Roberta crossed her arms, "Well, then I'll just have to give your Father a little talking of my own." Roberta began to storm in the direction where the two came from last. "Roberta, wait!" Suave yelled, getting up and running to try and catch up with her. Roberta demanded two of the angel guards to open up Cthulu's Chamber, where she began to steadfast her way towards the Elder God. Cthulu sat there in concentration, barely making notice of Roberta who walked right up to him, "Listen, we need your son to come up here to Heaven. We need to Altana to fuel the rest of this Dream Catcher, no matter the size. As long as we can get Green Altana then we can fuel it." Roberta yelled at Cthulu. Cthulu answered back with a small, yet loud growling sound. "He's changed since that incident years ago...he's a good man." "He's like family to me. Billy has taken care of me for years, allowing me to atone for what I've done and change how I walked the Earth. And even when I failed for the 3rd time, he still welcomed me with open arms like a big brother. He...he even risked his life to save Jazzy and Suave's. He's a hero. Even if you do not forgive what he did, he's someone I look up to. No matter how brash he is, or how loud he can get. He's someone who too, deserves more than one chance. Isn't that why you casted him to Hell, instead of erasing him from existence?" Roberta held up the Dream Catcher, which Cthulu was staring at, though you could not tell through his face tentacles. "If he can just come here for even a few minutes..." But Roberta was cut off by the Elder God sitting up from his position. Suave was peeping in from the doorway, and was shocked to see his Father standing up. Cthulu made two strides in Roberta's direction and extended his right hand, and eventually his index finger. His claw was twice as big as Roberta's entire body, but she didn't feel threatened in that moment. It was different, it was a feeling of understanding. As if, she passed his challenge. The Elder God placed his claw on top of the Dream Catcher in her hand. She felt an enormous amount of energy flow from the claw into the Dream Catcher, the purple and green mixing into a dull grey. The Dream Catcher was radiating as she looked up at Cthulu. The God sat back down in his seat and nodded. Roberta bowed her head and walked out of his room, showing Suave the Dream Catcher on her way out. "I've never seen so much raw energy before..." Suave noted, looking at the Dream Catcher. Roberta smiled, "I think it's time I show Jebby why he should have killed me back on Oukoku. Suave, let's go into his consciousness." Suave looked concerned, "But...that would mean I would have to undo the seal..." Roberta smiled and put her hand on Suave's shoulder. "It will be fine, I think he's a little pre-occupied at the moment to even notice. He's stuck in his own head, playing a game he can never win. It's time I pay him back for what he did to Yuka, and everyone else he's harmed. It's now or never Suave. Let's do the right thing." Suave gulped as he began to play the notes on his saxophone to begin ripping the seal from Jebediah's door, and also building a stairway from Heaven towards Earth. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Ketsuno Ana here! We're on location of the Final 4 immunity challenge as we speak! We've flown our contestants out of the snowy hellscape and smack dab in the fighting that has erupted in Edo! Their challenge this week is to reach Edo Castle and reach the throne room! We have reports that the Shinra have taken control...though the news is still murky! Be careful down there contestants!" Ketsuno Ana flew away in a helicopter while the 4 contestants stood at the front of the castle looking up at it, while it was completely engulfed in flames. "I'VE NEVER FOUGHT ANYONE IN MY WHOLE LIFE!" FDL yelled. The other three contestants smiled and nodded at each other as they rushed towards the castle gates with their swords/staff ready to attack any enemy they came across. "I've got to see my Honey. Immunity is nice, but I know he's somewhere in this castle." Shinsuke said in a confessional. The confessional cut to FDL in a different location, "Okay, this challenge just isn't fair! I am not trained in combat like those 3! I'm just some city girl working a desk job!" FDL said, crossing her arms. The scene cut to Pirako and Shinsuke slashing away with their swords at the various Shinra that were attacking them, while Otae made a be-line for the throne room. However, a ship came crashing into Edo Castle right next to Otae, knocking her off her feet. The ship popped open and Kyuubei was standing on the ramp. "Oh, Kyuu-chan! Can you help me up to the throne room?" Kyuubei ran up and squeezed Otae, "Otae-san, my Otae-san radar was off the charts. I just knew you were here. I thought you were still competing in Wurvivor?" Kyuubei asked. Otae struggled from the death grip of her best friend, "Well, I still am! My challenge is to get to the Throne Room, but you know, it's pretty tough with all these bad guys." Otae said. Kyuubei nodded and began to shove her on the ship, "Get on, hurry before the others see you!" but as Kyuubei was shoving Otae on the ship, she heard a loud yell coming from within the ship, "OOOOOOOHHH NO YOU DON'T! THE ONLY CONTESTANT ALLOWED ON THIS SHIP IS SHINNY-BOO! Sorry Boss Lady, but you cannot win today." Katsura picked up Otae and tossed her off the ship, which caused Kyuubei to draw her sword at Katsura. Shinsuke caught up to the commotion, "Honey, what the heck are you doing?" Shinsuke looked confused as he saw Katsura and Kyuubei slapping each other in a slap fight. "GAAAAAAHHHH SHE'S POWERFUL SHINNY!" Katsura gasped as he fell with a thud on the soft carpeted interior of the ship. As the two were cat fighting, Pirako zoomed past the other two contestants, wall jumping up the stairs. However, as she neared the top level, she was grabbed and pulled around a corner, "Hey what gives Bro! Oh!" Pirako noticed who grabbed her, "Pirako-chan, it is far too dangerous to take on those who lie ahead. I am amazed the Oukoku'n made it past them...but they are still guarding the exterior of the room." Jirocho pointed at three men standing next to a pile of Shinra, "Looks like we got ourselves a little gun-slingin!" Bores had spotted the father-daughter duo and shot off a single round that slowly made its way towards them, "GET DOWN PIRAKO-CHAN!" Jirocho shoved her aside and shield her from the on coming bullet which was still a good 5 or 6 meters away from him. "GET DOWN, IT'S GONNA HIT YOU!" Jirocho yelled as Pirako shook her head and began to run head on at the Dofus Trio. "WHAT THE HECK! DO YOU SEE HOW FAST SHE- GUUUH!" Pirako slugged Bores right in the face, knocking him out cold. Takatin reached out to try and grab her, but missed and fell down the entirety of the staircase, crashing through the floor below. Pirako stood there and stared at BH with an evil, red eyed look, which caused him to piss his pants. Pirako gently creeped around the knocked out and slain Shinra, but heard a cry from her father just across the room. She stopped and her face got dark as she realized that he was struck by the slow bullet. "GO AHEAD PIRAKO-CHAN! IT ONLY HIT MY ARM!" he yelled. Pirako rolled her eyes as she flew open the doors to the throne room, and saw Dragonia giving Soutatsu a huge noogie while he was wrapped up in his antenna. "Uhh. I captured the bad guy! Let's get out of here before we burn up!" Dragonia began to book it out of the throne room, while Ketsuno yelled from the helicopter that Pirako had won immunity. Down below, the other contestants waited as Pirako came down with Dragonia. FDL was sitting with Tesunosuke, after he was rescued by his fellow officers. "Yeah, I'm just not that good at fighting, you know? I'm a member of the Shinsengumi, but I'm not as skilled Hijikata-san or Kondou-san. I was watching you play Wurvivor, and you're really kicking butt! After Shimura-niisan got voted off, I'm totally rooting for you!" FDL gave a shy blush and thanked him. Pirako finally made it down with Elizabeth holding Soutatsu captive. Ketsuno swooped down and scooped the contestants up in the helicopter to hold tribal counsel back on the mountain, "Alright! Wow, what an exciting and life threatening challenge! FDL, you didn't participate at all? Are you that confident that you're safe?" Ketsuno asked. "It's not that I didn't want to participate, I just couldn't. I just work behind a desk. These dudes are all samurai, like what the heck. Anyway, not participating made me make a new friend today, so that's pretty cool." FDL said. "Shinsuke and Otae, you two got caught up with some loved ones! Really turned the tide for Pirako to win." Ketsuno said, Pirako butted in first though, "I won because my Pops was there! He took a bullet for me, he's OK though!" Pirako said, eagerly waiting to vote. "Kyuu-chan was really excited to see me so things got crazy, then Katsura-san was all over Shinsuke-san." Ketsuno shot daggers at Shinsuke who just gulped. "I suppose it's time we get to the votes, FDL, you're up!" the contestants all went off to vote. Ketsuno walked back to get the urn and placed it in front of everyone. "Once the votes are read the decision is final, the person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal counsel area immediately. I read the votes. First vote:" "Shinsuke." "FDL" "Shinsuke" 2 votes Shinsuke, 1 vote FDL. One vote left." .... "FDL. We have a tie. We will re-vote. If the votes come up as a tie again, FDL and Shinsuke you two will have to duel in a fire making challenge. So, Otae and Pirako you may recast your votes. Come and get the urn Pirako." Pirako stood up and grabbed the urn. She turned back and winked at Otae who slowly nodded. The two cast their votes and returned. "I'll go read the votes. First vote." "FDL. One vote left. 13th person voted out of Wurvivor Edo- "Front Desk Lady, you need to come bring me your torch." as FDL stood up, Pirako began to roar with laughter, "FINALLY GOT RID OF YOU! MY ARCH-NEMESIS!" Pirako laughed even more while FDL did a Jim look at the camera. "FDL, the tribe has spoken." "It's time for you to go." FDL grabbed her stuff and turned back to the contestants. "Good luck to you Otae, Shinsuke. I'll be rooting for you two." Pirako spat at FDL as she walked away, her giving Pirako the middle finger as she walked away. Ketsuno faced the contestants, "Final 3, you guys only have a few days left before we can crown one of you guys the title of Sole Survivor and the Million Dollar prize. Grab your torches and head back to camp, goodnight." Ketsuno smiled at them as they walked off. An Earthquake began to happen as they were walking back to their camp, but they didn't think anything of it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Am I dead?" Umibozu was wondering around a familiar place, at a time more simple. He looked at his human hands and sighed. "A dream within someone else's mind, what kind of Inception crap is this." Umibozu kicked around some rocks as he guided himself to some place he didn't know. As if he was being lured somewhere by someone. As he continued to walk, he noticed his arm was morphing back to the metallic prosthetic he came to get used to, and his luscious locks were falling behind him. He couldn't stop to pick up his lost hair, that drawing sensation was bringing him closer and closer to a wooded area. Soon, he had reached the shrubs and he completed reverted to his current day self. "Kankou..." Umibozu fell to his knees and put his head on the ground. Kouka covered her mouth as she walked closer to her husband. "This...this was the purpose I came to fight for. Nothing...nothing can end the happiness I feel at this moment. I knew this was more than just a dream...you're real." Umibozu looked up with a tear running down his face as Kouka bent down to hug him. Umibozu sat up to his knees as Kouka fell to hers. She leaned into her husband and rested her chin on his cold, metal shoulder. "Yes...I am very real Kankou. I've missed my business partner." Kouka smiled as she closed her eyes. "I can guarantee that Jebediah will be waiting for you when you wake up. I'm sorry the only time I get the chance to visit you is at a time like this...but he can't hurt us here." Umibozu buried his face in Kouka's shoulder, being able to take in her sweet scent for the first time in years. "I just wanted to pass along my wishes to not push yourself past your limit. You are not getting any younger Kankou." Umibozu managed to stand up, helping his wife to her feet as well. "I'm afraid I cannot grant that wish, Kouka. I have to help them destroy Jebediah. Other people are depending on me, and I have to hold up my reputation as the greatest alien hunter in the universe." Umibozu began to walk back to where he came, but Kouka grabbed his metal arm. He stopped, "Live, for Kamui and Kagura's sake. Please. Jebediah is more powerful than anything you've ever encountered." Umibozu turned back and gave his wife a simple nod as he vanished from her world, waking up in the cell he was cast off to. He noticed at the far corner of the cell was Oboro, huddled with his knees against his chest. Umibozu did not pay him any mind as he pointed his umbrella at the jail cell's door and blew it off its hinges. "It seems Jebediah is too busy to look after us, or maybe he wants me to break out. I've been working on this door for hours before I passed out...you don't looks so good Oboro." Umibozu remarked as Oboro met his gaze. "I have a lot to think about Umibozu-dono. I just want out of this place, I need time alone." Umibozu turned and walked out the cell door, leaving Oboro by himself. Oboro watched as the Yato disappeared into darkness. The cell Oboro was in began to shimmer as a portal opened. Jebediah stepped out of the portal and dusted off his boots. "You want to quit this little game Oboro? Come now. I thought you were sooooo~ ready to kill me, oh! How saaad. Nevertheless, if you wish to leave this place then by all means! Go ahead and walk. Leave your friends to their fate! How very...passive for the Keeper of Peace. Giving up and running away right before I take over the entire comic book. How sad, really." Jebediah at on the bed adjacent from Oboro who was still looking downtrodden. "I won't hurt you...no, I can't do that Oboro. Dear boy, I have to save my biggest prey for last! You can go ahead and rejoin the world of the waking. I hear it's rabbit season." Jebediah snapped his fingers, causing a door to emerge from the wall behind Oboro. "Now, I cannot open this door, but you are more than likely free to do so if you like." Oboro managed to his feet and faced the door. "I bid you farewell Jebediah-dono. What you have shared with me has impacted me unlike anyone has since my Sensei. I have absolute faith in my friends that they will subdue you. I have some soul searching to do." Oboro grabbed the door handle and slowly opened it, causing him to be sucked into the bottom of the ice rink. Jebediah stared as the door shut in his face. He gave himself a slight smile as he lifted himself from the bed. "Well, that was much easier than I anticipated. I suppose I should be meeting with that Yato then." Jebediah hummed the violin chords playing as he began to approach the dark hallway that Umibozu was walking down. Oboro was seen swimming to the hole in the ice rink and being pulled up by Haji and Kintoki. Poe flew over to his friend and landed on his shoulder. Oboro signaled for Poe to get on his fingers and held him in front of his face. "Poe. Everybody. I know how selfish this may sound to all of you, but I cannot stay here. I have trust in those still within Jebediah-dono's conscious and the Gods to stop him. I have to find the real me. The man that Sensei left in his wake. It took me until know to truly understand my duty in this world. Poe, please stay with Ozu-dono. I must do this alone." Poe cocked his head as Oboro pet the bird. Poe flew off Oboro's finger and out the door of the restaurant. The crowd of people who joined the expedition looked worriedly at Oboro. "What about Jebediah? He's causing mass hysteria right now! You can't leave us!" Haji yelled. Oboro shook his head, "They can handle him without me. I am far too weak to stand toe-to-toe with him alone like my Sensei did. I must train my newly found knowledge, and take him down if he ever shows his face again. However, I did not leave without helping those I left behind. Until then, I must bid you all farewell." Oboro opened the door to leave but was confronted by Tatsuma who overheard everything from out on the skating rink. "So, you're going to leave us Oboro? Well, I can't stop you. Me and Lt. Simon have been skating for almost 5 days straight. But, I'm gonna miss you while you're gone. Don't take long, you got that?" Tatsuma said, giving Oboro a hug. Oboro accepted the embrace, and walked past Tatsuma. He was still in deep thought, it was hard for him to gather everything that transpired. Meanwhile, Jebediah had finished whistling, and changed his tune up a bit, "Perfect! You! Down there with the shiny bald head!" Jebediah pointed at Umibozu, who was now visible in the small moon lit tunnel. Umibozu turned around, but in a flash was kicked in the gut and launched into a portal. He landed with a thud and looked around his surroundings, "Enjoy the paintings? This is one of my MANY! OH SO MANY BALL ROOMS!" Jebediah's voice echo'd through the halls of the room as he stepped out of the portal. Umibozu stood up and aimed his umbrella at Jebediah who only smiled. "Why not join me for a little twirl, my little bunny?" Jebediah grabbed the umbrella and snapped it in half. He snapped his free hand, and caused Umibozu's arm to shoot up and interlock with Jebediah's. Umibozu was stunned as Jebediah began to slowly waltz with the Yato, bringing each other closer and apart. "Enjoying yourself?" Umibozu looked down and saw that Jebediah's hand and his own were fused together. Umibozu tried to yank at it, but it was his flesh and bones arm rather than his metallic one. Jebediah smiled as he socked Umibozu in the mouth, causing a tooth to fly. Umibozu retaliated as he twirled Jebediah and punched him as he came back around to face him. Jebediah spit out some blood, "Mighty fine p- oh!" Jebediah grabbed Umibozu's hand and pried open his balled up robotic hand. Umibozu yanked Jebediah towards him with their fused hands and headbutted him as hard as he could, splitting open both of their skulls. Jebediah smirked, "You really don't want me to see you palm, do you?" Umibozu nodded, as blood ran down his face. "I was given something but a good friend of mind. Something that will help me defeat you." Umibozu flashed his palm at Jebediah who's smirky face turned to that of anger. "Writings in Latin huh? Let's see, "Ye who casts Altana, thee who controls it. Luceo non uro. Or, I shine, not burn. Very clever by that bird brained git. He inscribed your hand with his own blood. How in bloody hell did I not notice after that punch left a mark on my face." Jebediah put his hand up to where Umibozu punched him earlier, feeling the very visible burn mark that was left. Jebediah wrapped his arm around Umibozu and dipped him down with a shift motion, looking down at Umibozu and gave him an evil smile. He separated their hands and began to waltz by himself. "I quite love dancing. I'm not sure about you baldy." Jebediah tapped his feet together and teleported behind Umibozu. Umibozu was quicker than Jebediah anticipated and punched him in the gut with his robotic hand and stabbed him in the shoulder with his broken umbrella. Jebediah was sent flying into one of his statues. It topped over and broken in hundreds of pieces on top of him. Jebediah pushed the stone off him and brushed the debris from his coat. He stood up and continued to tap his feet again and winked at Umibozu, who just narrowed his eyes at him. Jebediah twirled and snapped his fingers at the same time, disappearing from Umibozu's sight. The Yato got on guard, holding the handle of his umbrella to defend from any on coming attack, but was not expecting to be grabbed from the bottom of his foot. "What in the-" Jebeidah pulled Umibozu halfway through the floor and stepped out of the portal. "My, looks like you're gonna be stuck there." Jebediah snapped his fingers as the portal closed in around Umibozu, constricting him. "Oo! Is that a little too tight for you?" Jebediah took a few steps back and waved his hand up and down as if he was lining up Umibozu's head. He began to run towards the trapped Yato but heard the door to his ballroom slam open. "Stop right there you big, stupid, idiot brain." Jebediah stopped in his tracks and met eyes with his "brother". "My, Enshou, Steven...and OH! Looks like you've brought along a little lady friend I am mighty familiar with!" Jebediah looked at FLTBC and then looked back at Enshou, "Would you care to dance Brother? Or is your heart still too weak to tango?" "You know I can never turn down a dance." Stephen was mortified when Enshou extended his hand towards Jebediah, who waltzed over and grabbed it. "We haven't done this in quite some time!" Jebediah said, as him and Enshou were moving in each other's arms. Stephen began to creep into the ballroom as FLTBC watched from just inside the doorway. Stephen crouched down to where Umibozu was being trapped and placed his hands down on the portal, causing it to loosen and help Umibozu out of it. Stephen noticed the engravings on Umibozu's hand, "Oboro inscribed them before he left." Umibozu was then met with a kick in the side of the head, causing him to collapse. Stephen looked up and saw Jebediah holding Enshou up with 1 hand like a ballerina as he kicked Umibozu as hard as he could. "Stephen! What are you doing not dancing, here!" Jebediah tossed Enshou in the air, "SWEETCHEEKS! CATCH ME!" Enshou landed in Stephen's arms as Jebediah twirled towards the entrance and grabbed FLTBC's hands, "My dear." And with a single kiss, she had vanished. Enshou pulled away from Stephen and confronted Jebediah, "What did you do to her? I DEMAND ANSWERS!" Jebediah grabbed Enshou by the throat and lifted him off the ground, "Simple, I just snapped her back into your pea brain. She's unharmed, just a hindrance." Stephen picked up the broken half of Umibozu's umbrella and threw it, coating it with his purple Altana, stabbing Jebediah through the arm he was lifting Enshou up with. He dropped Enshou and ripped the umbrella from his arm. "So, you want to dance now do you Captain? I've had my little fun with my brother...or hmm~" Jebediah picked Enshou back up, "You care for this man, don't you Stephen?" Stephen narrowed his eyes at Jebediah. "I could snap this man's neck at any moment I choose...or perhaps rip out this mechanical heart pumping blood through his body?" Jebediah rubbed his hand against Enshou's chest. "Now is not the time to do this BOD. But if you must I am wearing protec-" Jebediah threw Enshou against a line of chairs as Stephen began to rush towards Jebediah with his fists balled up. Jebediah caught each fist as the Captain threw them, and noticed just in time to cock his head back and dodge an attack from a now awake Umibozu. Jebediah flung Stephen in the air and smacked him against Umibozu, sending both of them into the ceiling of the castle. "That hand won't be good for long!" as Umibozu was falling, Jebediah had yelled out. He grabbed both arms of Umibozu and thrusted his foot into Umibozu's gut, ripping both of the Yato's arms off. Umibozu flung to the opposite end of the ballroom while Stephen fell flat on his face. Jebediah stepped on the Captain's back, causing him to yell. Before he could do anymore, Enshou jumped on his back. Jebediah was smart enough to grab the Buriean's laser swords before he could, and have them go off into both of his legs. Enshou fell of Jebediah's back, screaming in pain. He began to crawl away as blood trailed behind him. Jebediah bent down and grabbed Stephen by the back of his head with his hair. "My, you're the keeper of this book? An old, washed up man?" Jebediah smashed Stephen's face into the marble floor, causing his nose to break instantly. "I don't even have to use HALF my powers!" he smashed his face into the floor again. "Defeating two of the strongest beings in the know universe? Tricking one into leaving my conscious because his stupid, git teacher lied to him? Golly, I sure underestimated just how strong I really am." he smashed Stephen's face once again, blood spraying in every direction as the Captain began to lose consciousness. "AND HAVING TO DEAL WITH ANNOYING PESTS LIKE THAT FREAK!" He pointed at Enshou, the Prince's face looking distraught as his Captain was about to get another smashing. However, a single gunshot rang out, freezing Jebediah in his place. He let go of Stephen's hair and looked down at his chest which was bleeding profusely. Jebediah slowly turned his head around to face who had shot him, "I'm afraid it's time for this hard-boiled detective to defeat you once and for all Jebediah. As I was sitting in that tunnel, a thought occurred to me. A thought that not one single shot of Camus could ever fix. A thought of me giving up and leaving my friends. But...seeing their faces on this pictures, seeing what you've done to them here. I could never face them again. Which is why, you will fall at my feet and I'll crack your case wide open." Jebediah stood up and smiled, snapping his fingers and appearing right in front of Heiji. "You have been a thorn in my side ever since you meddled with that Purple Altana. And yet, you stand before me defiant, escaping my tunnels, and acting as if you are stronger than two men who could kill Gods. You have the GALL to shoot me. And think that's all there is to it, don't you, you wanker. You're nothing but a spec under my boot." Jebediah stuck his hand into the bullet hole that Heiji made, and ripped out his own, still-beating heart. He used his other hand to dig into the heart and pull the bullet out with two fingers. "You are playing with God." Jebediah kicked Heiji with a forces of a thousand Camus hangovers. Heiji went flying through the ballroom's window and down to the rocks just outside the castle. He landed with a huge thud, and coughed up some blood. It was obvious that kick broke some of his ribs. Jebediah jumped through the window and landed where he thought Heiji was but he was nowhere to be seen. Jebediah looked around and spotted Heiji in the distance, "How the hell did that git, get there so fast...what?" Jebediah saw Heiji rev up the motorcycle and speed through a tunnel. "I don't remember a tunnel being there...but I can't let him escape. He's breaking the rules of my game." Jebediah began to sprint at lightning speed towards the tunnel, but he failed to notice that it wasn't a tunnel at all. "Great job Haji!" Jebediah unstuck himself from the fake tunnel and snapped his fingers, appearing on the ladder opposite of Kintoki, "And just how the hell did you two sneak in here without me noticing?" Jebediah said, smiling at them. Before either could answer, Heiji came roaring back out of the fake tunnel on his motorcycle and shut it off. "It's simple Jebediah. The world as you know it is crumbling outside here. As in, your world." Jebediah looked around as the dark, fantasy setting he made was crumbling, and the sky was falling apart. "What did you three DO?!" Jebediah grabbed both Kintoki and Haji by their faces, but they didn't seemed fazed. Heiji took a puff of his cigar, "It's simple Jebediah. We're just three hard-boiled, chaotic detectives. However you may look at chaos, there's duality in everything. We...us three are that other half. You are anarchy, while we are controlled chaos. A system of scrambled checks and balances that are there to control one another. You've spouted endlessly about peace and chaos, but in the end Jebediah, you were defeated by the one thing you claimed as your own. Chaos. Our Comedy will forever triumph your Tragedy." the scene flashed back to Heiji sitting on the floor of the tunnel he was left at when he was separated from Oboro and Stephen. He felt his kimono begin to vibrate, and realized it was a text message from Haji: 'Boss! Oboro just left the door! You need to get out of there before something bad happens!' Heiji took out a cigar from his other pocket and began to light it. He pressed the Call button on his phone, "Haji, I need you two to get down here. You and Kintoki." Heiji said, "But Boss...who's going to let us out? We'd be trapped down there!" Haji yelled into her phone. "Something is happening to Jebediah. Something else is trying to get in here another way." Haji was confused, "What do you mean Boss?" Heiji took a deep drag from his cigar. "I've already seen three people who shouldn't be here get in, and I can feel this cave shaking again. Jebediah is focusing all his energy here, and I need you two to back up your boss. Have Kintoki bring that cartoon saw, you better not be late." Heiji clicked his phone off and snuffed his cigar out as a giant portal opened up next to him; the scene flashed forward to Jebediah still holding the two detectives when he felt something burst through his stomach. He let go of their faces and looked down to see FLTBC holding Umibozu's metallic arm, the same arm that was inscribed the anti-Altana spell. "I....I got rid of you..." Jebediah ripped the rest of the arm out of his body and fell backwards off the ladder. FLTBC put her hand over her mouth in shock at what she managed to do, "Lord Enshou...granted me back. He used the rest of his energy to will be back out of his mind and into yours Jebediah-san. You underestimated those who you claim as ants beneath your feet, but we are much stronger than you could ever believe." Jebediah began to crawl towards his castle, the 4 of them following him slowly as he inched towards the steps to his large castle, which itself was beginning to crumble and discolor. "What is happening to my world?" Jebediah pushed the doors to his castle open and saw a woman standing in his way, holding but a single dream catcher in her hand. He only gave her a slight smile before she began to speak. "It is time for you to eternally atone for you sins, Jebediah. You were so pre-occupied to even notice that we broke your seal." Roberta flashed the Dream Catcher in front of Jebediah. He saw behind her Suave using his saxophone to heal the wounded. Jebediah began to struggle to his feet, blood pouring from the wound in his stomach. Jebediah smiled even bigger at the thought that he could have escaped with his full powers at anytime, but was completely unaware. His body was beginning to revert to its original form, the dead Tendoushu member defusing from himself. "I've atoned for everything I have ever done. I am left to suffer in this Hell, a Hell where I am never given a second chance. A Hell without the past I've thrown away. Whatever you plan to do with that, it means nothing. Capture my soul, trap me yet again. But, know this. Everyone, know this." Jebediah moved his hand around to point at everyone in his general area. "My work is not finished. I will come back, and I will rule this world. I was naive, but there might just be someone out there who understands. When that time comes, I will kill everyone who stands in my way. The Gods will parish, and I will regain everything that I've lost." Jebediah stood in the doorway of his castle as his arm fell to his side. He was surrounded by everything he disregarded, everyone he let escape alive. The past was finally here to punish him. TBC
  4. Hail Satan!  Here's to another year for our demonlord and savior!

  5. …..."THOSE BASTARDS RUINED MY HAT AND....and they broke my Good Egg pin..." Kintoki put his head down as he sat in his barstool. "Are you crying oil? Whatever, that's besides the point. Why are we cooped up in this Oukoku'n Bar?" Stephen asked. "It's simple, Sensei always had a safe house on each planet. Of course, I've never been to every planet, but the ones that are relevant to us, I've got down in my handy map." Oboro said, showing the map to the 4 sitting in front of him. "How the hell are you supposed to read this?" Haji asked, grabbing the map. "Well, it's certainly a nice, fine, and hardboiled looking piece of art." Heiji said, inspecting it before accidentally burning it to a crisp with his cigar. "What are you guys even blabbering about?! Did you see what the hell happened in there?" Hijikata yelled from the opposite end of the bar. He was sitting at the farside of the bar with Kondo, Shige, Valentino/Skele and Umibozu. "Yes, shouldn't we be chasing down Jebediah? He's on the loose, and that's beyond dangerous." Umibozu said, leaning at the bar. "That's the problem, we have absolutely no idea where he vanished to. He hopped in a portal, and practically vanished. Who knows where he'll end up." Stephen said, pondering. "Are you guys going to just ignore me and Poe's awesome bandages? I mean, I knew these would come in handy one day. We're healing pretty fast, but it still makes us pretty cool looking." Poe caw'd in agreeance. As Kintoki opened his mouth to spew out Gods knows what, Heiji was deep in thought. "Boss, it seems like you're really constipated." Haji remarked. Heiji turned to his apprentice and grabbed her shoulders. "Haji, I just hatched the most hardboiled idea...we'll kill Jebediah." "ARE YOU INSANE BOSS?! YOU SAW WHAT THAT MAN DID! WE DON'T STAND A CHANCE!" Haji yelled. Heiji calmed her down, "Trust me on this one, my notepad is full. I may look weak, and a bumbling idiot, but I am a hardboiled detective. At my core, I do what I know is right for anyone who's willing to put their case in my hands." Heiji stood up from the barstool and snubbed his cigar out in the ashtray next to Kintoki. "If there's one thing I know, it's how to defeat Jebediah. Come on Haji, Kintoki. We're going back to Edo. You all are willing to join us if you like, but it will be rather dangerous. What I have planned could very well end...in death. But sometimes, a hardboiled detective is willing to put it all on the line to catch the scoop." Heiji began to walk out the door as Haji and Kintoki looked nervously at each other after hearing their Boss's more serious tone come out. "What makes you think you can defeat a man that was willing to ragdoll two of the most powerful beings in the entire universe." Umibozu said with a deadpan seriousness. Stepehn put his head down and Oboro put his hand on his stomach wound. The bar was silent as Heiji turned to face the Yato. "Umibozu. Unaware to you, I had Haji steal that notebook from you. I read the finished ending you gave it, the first hand account of Jebeidah," Heiji showed the bar the notebook. "He calls himself the embodiment of chaos. And, who gives him the right to hold such a title? Nobody. That's because it's a fake title, a self-given label that he believes to be true. Yet, how can such a title be given to someone that doesn't exist in this universe?" Heiji turned his back. Haji and Kintoki stood up from their barstool to join their boss. Before the trio walked out of the door, Stephen spoke up. "I believe you Heiji." Heiji stopped in the doorway as Haji and Kintoki slipped past him out of the bar. Heiji took a cigar from his pocket and held it between his fingers. "The comment Haji made in the hotel room about entering in Jebediah's world made me realize just how much you truly know about this man. Hell, I'd say you're a better detective than myself. And when you mentioned how Jebediah is the embodiment of chaos, I think I know what you meant. There is duality in chaos." Heiji made a small chuckle as he walked out the door of the bar. He quickly noticed the rest of the bar followed him out to the street. "Need a light, detective?" Hijikata and Heiji both took a puff from their tobacco, letting the smoke fill the night sky. "If Kintoki-dono believes in you, then I have no choice but to back him up." Oboro said, Poe nodded, taking one of Hijikata's cigarettes. "Toshi, I'm assuming you're going to head back to Earth with these guys. I'll take the Shogun over to the hospital to meet with Prince Barkas." Kondo said, giving Hijikata a high five. Shige bowed in Heiji direction. "If you three manage to save Majesty Yuka, and help stop Jebediah; I'll be sure to reward you handsomely on behalf of the country of Edo." Shige raised his head and began to head towards the large hospital a few blocks down the road with Kondo. “If it means gettin Sorella back, then count me in.” Valentino said, patting Heiji on the back. Umibozu was the last person out of the bar, "I admire your tenacity, detective. I'm simply following you because I wish to enter this world Jebediah resides in. I...know it's selfish of me, but I just have to be there." Umibozu said, putting his umbrella up. Shige had called for a space limo to pick them up and drive them back to Edo where they could begin preparations. As the limo pulled up to the camera, it shifted to a different car driving. This one decked in white, with blue and red flashing lights. "Uhg, who the hell decided to play Last Address? Nobume-san, turn the radio on." Isaburo leaned his head on the steering wheel as the Eliteomobile came to a halt at a red light. "Isaburo-san, I know you aren't stressed out about losing those three goons who attempted to assassinate the Shogun. What's troubling your boomer mind? Politics?" Nobume asked, filing her nails. Isaburo sighed through the steering wheel. "It's my brother, Nobume-san." Nobume stopped filing her nails and looked at Isaburo with a shocked expression. "Not often you actually mention that sad sack. Where did you leave him this time?" Nobume asked as Isaburo began to drive again. "He's at our house. I just told him to make us dinner when we get off our shift. I don't know Nobume-san, you know how hard it is for my to express my emotions. I just feel like I never got the chance to really bond with Tetsunosuke. I always viewed him as a failure and a disgrace to our family name. I just...I don't know. Maybe I've been too hard on him." Isaburo began to furiously text on his phone, so Nobume had to grab the steering wheel and help him drive. Eventually Isaburo pulled up to his and Nobume's house and he rested his head on the steering wheel again. "I don't want to face him Nobume-san. Not tonight." Nobume just chopped him on the top of his head, "Why is tonight different than any other night? Is it because we just put up our Westside 4 Life Christmas lights?" Nobume said, looking at the giant effigy of Eazy E standing in their yard, draped in tinsel. "It's December 22nd, Tetsunosuke's Birthday." Isaburo's head slid down and hit the horn on his car. The horn blared out through the silent streets before Isaburo picked his head back up. He looked through his windshield and saw a person standing in the road, “What the heck?! Those two weren’t supposed to be here for another hour!” Isaburo cocked his head slightly as he saw Bores run into his house. The Elites jumped out of the Eliteomobile and rushed towards the house, kicking down their front door. Isaburo pointed his pistol at a group of figures and Nobume drew her sword. As their visions adjusted, the figures began to form. “Shinra?” Isaburo met eyes with Soutatsu as the man hoisted up the sack. “Sasaki Isaburo. We easily captured your brother and placed him within this potato sack,” Soutatsu was cut off by Nobume, “Are you sure? That kind of just looks like him.” She said with a deadpan delivery. Soutatsu breathed a deep sigh and shook the bag, causing Tetsu to squirm and call out “Sasaki!” Isaburo narrowed his eyes at the Shinra. “And just what do you want from me? You won’t be able to bribe me so easily.” Isaburo said sternly. Before Soutatsu could answer, a loud burp could be heard coming from the Elite Kitchen Area. “Holy crap! Takatin is a freaking beast.” Bores exclaimed loudly. The three were causing a ruckus that could be heard through the whole house. “Should I go in there and silence them forever, Isaburo-san?” Nobume said, but Isaburo shook his head. “Why did you bring those three with us again? I thought you were done with them.” one of the Shinra whispered to Soutatsu. Soutatsu clenched his fist angrily. “They’re my insurance policy. You. Take us to the Shogun’s castle. We know he is away, and security is low. We also demand the release of Nobu Nobu, or else we’ll dispose of your brother and the entire Mimawaragumi.” Isaburo lowered his gun and lowered Nobume’s katana. “Why are you backing down so easily Isaburo-san? We’ve taken on much stronger opponents than these doofuses.” Nobume said, slickly sheathing her katana. Isaburo turned to her and whispered, “They’re mere fools who believe Edo will collapse. They don’t realize just how powerful our bonds are with our allies, and even our prisoners.” Isaburo led the Shinra and the Doofus Trio towards the Shogun’s castle, passing by a man with his face hidden with a straw hat. The man turned to face the back of the group and continued on his way. He entered into a small hideout just outside of the Kabuki-cho and sat down across from 5 other people. “There’s no mistaking it. Three of the toughest warriors I’ve ever locked up with are heading for the Shogun’s castle. It seems they have bested the Mimawarigumi’s top 2…” Jirocho said, looking concerned. The other 5 across from him looked among themselves. Otose, Saigou, Gintoki, Yamazaki, and Gonard. “To have the Mimawarigumi to be thwarted so easily is worrying…” Yamazaki said. Gintoki was focused on Jirocho, “And just who are those 3 powerful people? Honestly, they can’t be THAT tough.” Gintoki said. “A man going by the two letters, B and H. The heavy, I couldn’t quite catch his name, but he resembled a monsterous wrestler...and their leader simply known as The Boar. He bested some of the toughest people I know. If I were you guys, I’d be careful to not tail Soutatsu so closely. Especially you, Shinsengumi. You guys are missing some of your most powerful men. And by the looks of it, you two were left in charge.” Jirocho looked over at Yamazaki and Gonard. “Well, Coconut Head said he was busy so he sent us here! He’s the one actually in charge right now!” Gonard said happily. The scene shifted to Sougo taking acting lessons. “You got it baby, you’re beautiful! Just work on those last few lines and the play is ready to open for sure! You’ll be a star!” “Phew, I think I’m starting to get a hang of this acting thing Douman-danna. Just the practice I need.” Sougo said, looking proud of himself. The scene shifted back to Gintoki who had a deadpan look on his face, “And what was that pointless cutaway about anyway?” Gintoki asked, but the author knew and he wasn’t going to share. “What do you suggest we do then, Old Man?” Otose asked Jirocho. Jirocho gestured at Saigo, “One of your girls has been doing a lot of digging on not only Soutatsu, but an even greater threat. I’m sure word has been spreading around Edo about a mysterious man named Jebediah appearing on Oukoku. Tako has been hot on the trail.” Saigo nodded. “She’s made Ma proud, I’ll say that. All my girls make me proud, even you Pako,” Gintoki simply blinked, “I have faith that whatever Tako has planned, she’ll see through to it til the very end.” Saigou finished. Jirocho turned to Otose, “As for us two old farts, what best we can do but hold the fort down in Kabuki-cho? It’s something we’ve done plenty of times before.” Otose smiled, “As long as by the end of this, my bar gets fixed so that perm head can start paying rent again.” Gintoki rolled his eyes and stood up. “Oi, you two blackcoats get your men ready, and I’ll get some friends ready at the castle. We’re snubbing this fire-starter out before his blaze can get out of control.” Gintoki said, opening the door and leaving. He closed the door into a scene change as another door opened and Roberta and Kouka walked through it. “Are they seriously still playing in that waterfall?” Roberta said, putting her hand on her hip. Suave was spraying water from his sax at Billy’s face as he splashed at Jazzy’s direction, who was just standing there giving his usual stoic look. “Join the fun ladies! We’re just kickin back here. Why the hell does Rabbit Face get a much better place than me? I can’t even turn the thermostat up down there.” Billy said jumping out of the water. “Because you killed our brother, Billy. Anyway, we should head out. We have what we need in this dreamcatcher. Thank you Kouka-dono.” Jazzy said, bowing to Kouka. Kouka simply nodded her head. Billy rolled his eyes as Suave climbed out of the water behind him. “That fucking posh idiot was the one who planted those seeds in my head anyway.” Billy said. “If our brother was here today, things would be much easier.” Jazzy said, opening a portal that directed back to Heaven. Billy just shook his head as Jazzy and Suave began to leave. However, Roberta spoke up, “Jazzy, may I please have that Dreamcatcher.” Roberta said with a stern tone. Jazzy turned around with a bit of a surprised look on his face, “Being straightforward are we Roberta-dono? Very well, I shall lend the Dream Catcher with you and Billy. However, I must warn you Roberta-dono. Without both Altana, that Dream Catch is worthless against Jebediah-dono. Do not let him get ahold of it either. With powers like that, Jebediah-dono will be unstoppable.” Jazzy warned her, as he tossed the Dream Catcher. She caught it and looked down at it. “Will the green Altana be enough to free Yuka?” she asked, looking back up at Jazzy. Jazzy glanced down in thought, and met eyes with Roberta, “I do not know the answer to that question Roberta-dono. If you wish to free Yuka-dono from her own subconscious, then take extra caution. Bring Billy with you if you must. Who knows how dangerous he is right now.” Jazzy and Suave turned and walked back up to Heaven while Billy furrowed his brows. “Of course they get to do the easy part, leaving us with the dirty work.” Billy snapped his fingers and the ground opened up. Kouka was looking on from a distance. She turned her back to Roberta and Billy and walked back into her workshop. Roberta was thinking deeply about what Kouka shared to her earlier, while Billy tugged on her arm, “Well? You gotta head back to Hell while I go up to the surface. Shits going down up there and someone’s gotta do the hard shit. Go on back there and wait til I engage this idiot physically. Then, you can try and wake Yuka from her own mind. That would help weaken Jebby pretty significantly. Fish Breath doesn’t usually leave a big task like this to people...pft, it’s whatever you know.” Billy leaned on the portal he opened up and smiled to himself. “I don’t know how I’m going to hold him off alone. But stupid old me told Suave to stay with Jazz.” “If you haven’t guessed it years and years ago, I just really knew something was special about you Roberta. I’m putting a lot of trust in you today. More than I ever have before.” Roberta looked down at the green-glowing Dream Catcher while Billy was speaking, “If I die here today, then nothing would have been worth it. I killed my own brother because I let someone else’s words alter my thoughts. Even in countless universes where this man didn’t exist, his words echoed in my mind. We’re like two peas in a pod y’know? We kill someone we love and yet we’re still forgiven. And, here we are both again. Risking everything to self-satisfy. While you and Rabbit Face we’re talking, I convinced my brothers that I should weaken Jebediah myself. I was hoping you would wish for the Dream Catcher. Hmph, knowing those two dorks they’ll just come down and save my ass if I’m getting the shit kicked out of me.” Roberta looked back up at Billy, “You’re going to fight him alone? You three seemed so anxious to fight him before…” Roberta said, clutching the Dream Catcher. “Of course I am. I’ve died before so why should I fear death? What I’m afraid of is losing who I really am in my soul.” Billy gave her a little salute and walked through his portal back to Earth, leaving Roberta with the Dream Catcher and the stairway back to Hell. Billy’s portal opened up in the ruins of the Oukoku High Court. Fire and ash was raining down in the street, debris from the courthouse was falling and smacking the pavement. “WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU BASTARD?!” Billy yelled out. More debris was falling, and eventually a large screen TV fell next to Billy. He glanced at it, seeing what was on. “WE ARE RIGHT IN THE THICK OF THIS CHALLENGE! The first person to completely replicate the Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon with only snow! The competitors have been going at it for a good chunk of the past hour now!” the scene cut to Shinsuke in confessional. “If there’s one thing I know, it’s a Justaway. I’ve seen one in person.” the scene went to Matako scratching her head at the mound of snow. She looked at Otae who just shrugged her shoulder, and then at Saitou who was fast asleep. “How the hell do you make this?! I never paid attention in history class.” Matako said, crossing her arms. “That’s too bad Matthew, I’m way in the lead.” Shinsuke said, rolling up a large snowball. He looked at it pleased and admired it before putting it in as one of his final pieces. “Now THIS is how you make a Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet-” but he was cut off, “Done!” Shinsuke snapped his head around to see Pirako posing in front of the canon she built. “WHAT?!” Shinsuke yelled. Ketsuno Ana ran up to the canon, “Pirako wins immunity! She’s safe at tonight’s tribal.” Pirako smiled and clapped for herself before confessional cut to her, “I studied history like crazy when I was young.” Pirako said smiling. The contestants all headed back to camp and began discussing strategy. “So look, I’m out of my number 1 ally. I figured you and I could at least work something together.” Shinsuke was sitting across from Otae. “It seems like a long shot though Shinsuke-san. I know Pirako-chan really wants to take you out. I just don’t know if I can help you right now.” Shinsuke nodded and stood up. As he was standing up, FDL brushed past him, “I got something you might like,” the confessional cuts to FDL, “If I give Shinsuke the idol I found a few weeks ago, I could assure he stays in this game and we chip away at Pirako. She’s without a doubt the biggest threat to win this game. She’s safe tonight however, so I think it’s best we attack her number 2.” the scene cuts to Pirako and Matako discussing with each other. “I don’t really know how I feel about voting out Shinsuke-sama…” Matako said worryingly. Pirako gave her a lit tap on the face. “Don’t think about it voting him out, you’re simply writing a name on parchment.” Pirako said with a smile. Matako thought about it as Pirako walked away. She passed by and whispered to Saitou. A confessional cut to Pirako, “It’s pretty simple tonight. If everything goes smoothly, Shinsuke is going home. We pretty much got 4 votes to his name.” Pirako smiled as the camera faded to tribal council. “Alright! So Pirako! I’m surprised you knew so much about military weaponry!” Ketsuno remarked. Pirako nodded, “Pops taught me a lot when we re-connected.” Pirako smiled. “Shinsuke, you seemed to be singled out after your biggest ally got voted out! How are you feeling tonight?” Ketsuno asked. “Well, I’m pretty scared. However, I think I’m ready to take anything that comes my way.” Shinsuke said. “Sounds good! I think it’s time we get to the vote, FDL you’re up!” FDL walked to vote, as everyone else followed suit. Ketsuno stood up to grab the urn and bring it back. “If anybody has a hidden immunity idol and you’d like to play it, now would be the time to do so.” She looked around a few moments before FDL stood up, “Miss Ana. I would like to play my idol...for Shinsuke.” Shinsuke looked at her with a shocked expression. Ketsuno took the idol, “The rules of Wurvivor state that if anyone plays a hidden immunity idol, all votes cast for them will not count and the next highest number of votes goes home. This IS a hidden immunity idol. All votes cast against Shinsuke will not count. I’ll read the votes.” the whole cast was shocked. Pirako was shooting daggers at FDL. “First vote:” “Shinsuke, does not count.” “Shinsuke, does not count.” “Shinsuke, does not count.” “Front Desk Lady, that’s 1 vote FDL.” “Matako, that’s 1 vote FDL, 1 vote Matako, one vote left. 11th person voted out of Wurvivor Edo:” “Matako. That’s 2, and tonight that’s enough. You need to come bring me your torch.” Matako nodded and picked up her torch. Pirako was still giving FDL a deathstare. “Matako, the tribe has spoken.” “It’s time for you to go.” Matako walked away and waved to her competitors. Ketsuno stepped in front of the tribe, “Well, things are still heating up and there’s only 5 of you left. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Goodnight!” Ketsuno waved to all of them. As the credits were rolling, Billy felt a sharp blow to his head, sending him flying into the building opposite of the courthouse. “Oh heavens, did I interrupt your TV show? Bawaha! Silly me.” “Fitting song, just in time for the holiday season.” Jebediah stepped out of his time portal and snapped his fingers, causing it to close up behind him. He surveyed the season before him, the destruction he caused just before he took a trip down memory lane. He watched as Billy struggled out of the rubble he was placed underneath by the mighty punch Jebediah hit him with. Jebediah stretched his arm out and grabbed Billy by the throat, bringing him face to face. “And what brings you here Mad Titan? Where are your brothers?” Billy just smiled and spit in his face. Jebediah snapped his fingers and opened another time portal. He chucked Billy through it, running as fast as possible behind the God. Billy was flying through all kinds of different eras in the universe, smashing into monuments, and even moments within the comic book, before eventually landing back in the present day. Jeb sped through the portal and caught Billy before he crashed into anything. Billy was dizzy, and nauseated after being chucked through time (really wears on you!) “I’ll ask again William, what brings you here alone?” Billy was hanging from his feet, looking up at Jebediah, “I want to prove something to my brothers.” Billy threw a right fist that was caught by Jebediah’s muscle hand. He bent Billy’s wrist backwards, snapping his bones. Jebediah dropped the God on the ground and began to circle around him. “Oh? You want to prove something do you? Remember when I single-handedly defeated both Utsuro and Jazzy? Do you? Well, I don’t blame you for wanting to prove something. I think I did that myself by giving Utsuro a little visit. Now, don’t worry. I didn’t alter the past in any way, I just gave him a friendly reminder about who the most powerful being is. Yeah, I’m guessing you figured out that I have a mighty big help in this crystal.” Jebediah produced the purple crystal from within his chest. “Yuka’s body is perfect to store things in, oh don’t worry Mademoiselle, I didn’t mean it that way.” Yuka was curled in a ball, completely helpless in her cage. She was alone, as Jebediah had managed to breach the physical world. Jeb looked down as he saw Billy was about to speak, “So, the Majesty is all alone inside her own head?” Billy asked. Jebediah nodded, “And don’t think about trying to hop inside her head either, I’ve got my eyes locked onto you until you’re nothing but DUST UNDER MY BOOTS.” Jebediah stepped on Billy’s broken wrist, fracturing his forearm in the process. Billy seemed unphased as he grabbed Jebediah’s booth with his free hand. Billy morphed into his Titan form and lobbed Jebediah across the entire capital city. His body zoomed past the hospital windows where Enshou and Barkas was resting, “Who the hell put this make up on me while I was asleep.” Enshou sat up from his hospital bed and looked around the room. It was empty besides Barkas, who was still asleep and recovering from his surgery. Enshou looked down at his chest and saw the large bandages covering both his pecs. He looked out the window to the right and saw the giant Titan racing down the street. He paid no mind because he was tired, and just now waking from surgery. He noticed a small card on the table next to him. He picked it up and began to read it, “Enshou: I’m leaving you a note just in case I’m not here to see you wake up. What you did for Prince Barkas was the most selfless thing you’ve done or ever could do. You always make me want to strive to be a better person, even if other people do not see the real you like I, or Barkas do. I’m going to deal with the trial of Majesty Yuka. If I’m not here when you wake up, then possibly something bad has happened. I’ll get in contact with you as soon as possible. Love, Sweetcheeks.” Enshou stared at the note longer than he read it. He was beginning to feel the new heartbeats of his synthetic heart as loud crashes and bangs were happening just outside. Billy grabbed Jeb from the wreckage of the building he crashed into, but when he opened his hand Jeb was gone. “Looking for me old chap?” Billy turned his head and was met with a giant liquid fist that completely knocked him out of his Titan body. Billy went crashing into the earth of Oukoku, leaving a giant crater. Billy’s face was seared like a hot pan had hit him. He turned his head and looked at his broken hand. “I can’t give up now…” Billy was struggling to move from the impact zone, and as he was Jebediah stomped down onto Billy’s stomach, causing him to cough out blood in a sort of anime like way. Jebediah stepped off of Billy’s abdomen and examined the beaten, and battered God laying before him. “I am not the man you faced countless Universes ago, Billy. I am far more than just that. Do you remember when I said Utsuro was afraid of me? Ever after countless numbers of universes, that man is still afraid of me. He knows that peace cannot exist without my chaos. Quite simple right? I just figured I’d give his past self a nice little reminder. Toy with him a little because he knows he cannot touch me. I have ascended past him.” Jebediah was walking around the wounded God, Billy was reaching at his ribs knowing them to be broken from both impact and the stomp. “What does that make me then? I’m nothing. You’ve already ripped away what makes me human. You and your damned brothers.” Jebediah reached down and picked Billy up by his neck. Billy’s feet weren't able to touch the ground and he began to start choking. Jebediah’s focus was completely fixated on Billy that within the subconscious he was controlling, he did not notice the small portal open from the back of the parlor he set up. Roberta crawled out of the portal and looked around the throne room that Jebediah had set up. She was in awe at the detail, the brightlights, and marble decor. Then, she spotted her. Curled up in a ball within a metallic cage was Yuka. Roberta closed her eyes tight and re-opened them, her hand was clutching the Dream Catcher with an immense force. Roberta was scared to alert Yuka, she didn’t want to alert Jebediah. Though seeing Yuka made her want to talk, share a cup of coffee...anything again. She stealthily turned into her worm form and slunk up to the cage, behind Yuka’s back. She held the Dream Catcher up to the cage and it began to glow a bright, blinding green. The light was so intense that it woke Yuka up. She turned to face Roberta and the two locked eyes, Yuka’s growing as wide as billiards balls. However, this light also caught the attention of Jebediah. He dropped Billy and his physical body returned to that of the dead Tendoshu and Yuka hybrid. Billy fell to the earth, breathing heavily. Jebediah rushed into the subconscious and grabbed Roberta by her tail. “Well! Looks like we have quite the unwanted guest!” Jebediah threw her across the room, sending her crashing into several marble statues. “Oh?” Jebediah saw the Dream Catcher in between him and Roberta. Roberta began to quickly slither towards the Dream Catcher but Jebediah snapped his finger to appear right in front of her. “Oh, good day maam. W-were you going somewhere? Oh, pardon me then.” Jebediah grabbed her face and squeezed it with all his might. Roberta let out a loud scream as she transformed back to her normal body. Jebediah’s hand was clasped over it entirely at this point. Yuka’s muffled screams could be heard from the cage as Jebediah looked up and smiled at her. “A rat infiltrating my dream world. There seems to be plenty of these scurrying around as of late.” Jebediah dropped Roberta and turned to see another portal open and Jazzy stepped out from. “Jebediah-dono. You have gone on for far long enough. It is time I put an end to you once and for all. You’ve pushed my brother to his limit, and I must intervene.” Jazzy raised his hand and produced a purple Altana crystal. Jebediah smiled at the God, “I’m sorry Jazzy, my good, very good old chap; but I’m afraid you cannot even touch a being as powerful as me.” Jebediah snapped his finger and took back control of Yuka and the Tendoushu’s physical body. Jazzy narrowed his eyes and left the purple crystal next to Roberta’s body, as she was trying to regain her strength. He kneeled down next to her, “Roberta-dono. Combine this purple crystal to the Dream Catcher and leave. I will leave the gates of Heaven open for you, a place Jebediah cannot, and will not ever enter. Suave-dono will be waiting for you there...I asked him specifically to stay behind. Do not worry about Yuka-dono. Her physical body will not feel the pain endured by Jebediah-dono. You are safe here,” Jazzy turned his attention to Yuka. “Your will is strong to endure this much. I admire you for that.” Jazzy walked over to Roberta and placed one of his fins on her head, “Billy-dono is not the only one who views you as special, Roberta-dono. You may not realize it at this moment, but there were reasons you’ve been given multiple lives. My brothers and I need someone like you. Please, protect Suave-dono if I cannot make it back.” Jazzy stood up and opened a portal to the physical world, stepping into the large crater to face Jebediah. Jazzy placed his hands on his fishbowl and removed it from his head. Jazzy sat the bowl down next to his brother who was looking at his own reflection in the crystal clear water. “Mmmm~? Taking off your fishbowl? I remember when I shattered that eons ago and left you helpless!” Jebediah exclaimed. Jazzy closed his eyes and began to focus. “I have matured greatly since that day Jebediah-dono. You are not facing the same God you did in Universe 2. You’ll regret underestimating me.” Jazzy slowly placed his hands together as Jebediah observed from a few feet away. “Bring me everything you’ve got Jebediah-dono.” Jebediah smiled at that. “So, then I shall.” Jazzy was frozen, his mind connected the dots. The similarities between those two were completely uncanny. “You truly are the Keeper of Chaos.” Jazzy simply said as Jebediah’s fist met his face. Jebediah unleashed a barrage of punches, causing his limbs to morph into giant fists, giant mallets, and even giant swords to slash away at the God. Jazzy was attempting to block each oncoming blow, but Jebediah’s relentlessness was overwhelming him. Billy could only watch helplessly as his brother was being subjected to a beatdown. He reached his hand out, but he was in no way of shape to fight with his brother. Jazzy stanced as he planted his foot down to stop being pushed back farther from the blows. Jazzy was beginning to catch Jebediah’s punches, bleeding from his forearms, his chest, and through the fists he had clinched on Jeb’s. Jebediah simply opened his eyes from his warm smile and locked them in with the God’s glazed over look. “So, where and how are you more mature than you were back then? You seem quite the push-over really.” Jebediah said, but he was too busy commenting to notice Jazzy had swept his leg which caused him to get caught in a chokehold. Jazzy clinched his elbow around Jebediah’s neck, swiftly getting behind him. Jebediah was too powerful for the God, or so he thought. Jebediah flipped his head forward, causing Jazzy to roll off Jebediah’s back and let go of his neck. In the smooth process, Jazzy grabbed Jebediah from his waist and suplexed him to the ground, putting his elbow into the back of Jebediah’s head. “Impressive Fish! But you’ve got to do more than martial arts to defeat me!” Jebediah snapped his finger, which caused the ground beneath him to open up. He slipped through the crack as Jazzy let go of him. He snapped his finger and the ground closed up around him. Jazzy had a concerned look on his face, concentrating all of his Altana to locate where Jebediah was in the ground. But, he soon realized what Jebediah’s plan was. “BILLY!” Jazzy rushed toward his brother and managed to shove him out of the spot he was laying in. However, Jazzy was not able to move out of the way in time and felt the full force of Jebediah’s fist punching straight through his abdomen. Jebediah rose from the ground, Jazzy’s body sliding down his arm as he stood on ground level. He flung his arm straight down, causing the God to smack against the Earth. Jebediah turned his attention to Billy, but realized Billy had disappeared. He looked around for the other God. “I believe...I stalled you for long enough Jebediah-dono.” Jebediah snapped his attention to Jazzy, who was laying in a pool of blood. Jebediah walked over to him and peered down at him. Jebediah’s gaze soon widened as he realized that he forgot about Roberta in Yuka’s consciousness. He quickly reached into his pocket to retrieve the Purple Altana Crystal and used his other hand to punch through the hole in Jazzy’s abdomen. He closed his eyes and began to recite a phrase in Latin. He had to concentrate on the spell, as he knew this was the only source of Green Altana other than his own that he could harvest. Jazzy’s skin began to grow pale as Jebediah’s entire left side began to glow green. He ripped his hand from Jazzy’s chest and broke the Purple Crystal in half, smashing the other part. Yuka’s body expelled from the Tendoushu’s body, which now began to show life again. Bones began to fill the empty sections of the body as Jebediah sighed through the now breathing lips of the former Tendoushu. “How I miss Mademoiselle's body, but I suppose this will have to do.” Jebediah snapped his fingers and a portal opened up. “You put up a pathetic effort...until the end. I suppose you did indeed mature Jazzy, but I think in the end, I’ve ripped away everything that made you so snobbish.” Jebediah walked through the portal and it closed up behind him. Jazzy laid in silence as it felt all the Altana in his body had completely drained. Within Yuka’s subconscious, Roberta successfully combined the Purple Altana Jazzy gave her and the Dream Catcher while Jebediah was fighting. Jazzy created enough time for her to get it completed. With the completed Catcher, she was able to obliterate the cage Yuka was captured in and unzip her mouth. Yuka fell with a thud to the marble floor as Roberta ran up beside her. Yuka stared up at the woman whom she’s shared countless, happy memories with. Yet, countless haunting ones as well. Yuka looked away from Roberta as the Skolexian reached her hand down to help her to her feet. Roberta retracted her hand and turned away from her former lover, “Yukes...I can’t begin to apologize for what I’ve done to you. I just want to say that I’m glad...I’m glad I was able to at least save you this one time. You may not believe me, but in my heart, I will always be your guardian angel.” Yuka didn’t remove her gaze from the now crumbling marble ground as a staircase to Heaven opened up. Roberta looked back at Yuka one last time before heading up, while Suave rushed out to the waking world to get next to his brother. “Jazzy!” Suave kneeled down to his brother’s side. “My sweet brother...I made sure to use what little Altana I had left to send Billy back home. I...I don’t think I’ll be joining you back in Heaven, Suave-dono. Jebediah-dono expelled all the Altana I had, plus fighting without my fishbowl weakened me significantly. I appreciate you healing my wound...but now I must walk the Earth like our Brother once did. It’s been a long time coming for me...as Jebediah-dono said, perhaps this will humble me.” Jazzy’s body morphed back into the small, jade tiger fish he once was. Suave, through tears, picked his brother up and placed him in the fishbowl that remained in tact at the center of the large crater. Yuka began to stir, as she was finally waking from her coma like state. She looked around at the disaster before her and wiped a single tear from her cheek. She walked a few feet and picked up the fishbowl that Jazzy was swimming around in and put him close to her chest. “I like to believe I have more than one guardian angel...but she’ll be the one that looks over me forever.” Yuka looked up to the sky as the clouds were quickly moving. The camera panned up to the clouds, as a ray of sunshine came down to focus on a different location. Sun-dono’s rays reflected from the Long Wohn Silver’s sign out in front of the skating rink. The Detectives, Stephen, Hijikata, Oboro, Poe, Umibozu, and Skele/Valentino were sitting in a booth just next to the hole that was still present behind the counter. Kamui (reluctantly) let the Detectives back into his restaurant after causing a scene just a few days ago. “Can I have a new hat please?” Kintoki asked, but was met with a fish slapped into his face. “Absolutely NOT!” Kamui said, skating away. “What is taking Boss so long? He said he was going to discuss our game plan when we got here, yet he’s been in the bathroom for 20 minutes!” Haji exclaimed, as she did, the door to the restroom violently smacked open, squishing 4th between the door and the wall as he was taking a tray of food to another customer. “I am ready to defeat Jebediah.” Heiji said, flapping his feet as he walked over to the table. Everyone’s face grew dark as he took the breathing tube from his mouth. “I think you’re ready to look at coral or something!” Hijikata yelled. Heiji simply shook his head, “It’s hard to breath down there, I gotta be prepared. Now, I figured that you two will stay back while we go into his consciousness.” Heiji gestured at Kintoki and Haji. “But Boss!” Heiji cut her off, “I don’t want to hear it Haji. You two are the only two hardboiled enough to open that door back up in case of an emergency. I’m putting my faith into the two most important people to me. I trust you will be there when I need you guys the most.” Heiji smiled at his two apprentices, who smiled back at him. “I’ll be joining you, as I stated previously back on Oukoku.” Umibozu said, staying firm and shooting daggers at his son who was spinning on the ice. Oboro looked at Poe on his shoulder, “You should also rest here Poe, and watch out for these people. I’ve completely healed, while you still have a Booboo-dono on your head.” Poe nuzzled Oboro’s hair in agreeance. “I suppose I should go too, considering I contain Purple Altana, plus I think I’m more than capable of holding my own.” Stephen said, still needing to pick a bone with Jebediah after what happened on Oukoku. Hijikata and Skele/Valentino shook their heads, “I have to meet back with Yamazaki and Gonard. I hear they’re hot on the heels of the serial arsonist.” Heiji winked at his comrades after that comment. “I’s gotta stay here and make sure my sorella is safe.” Valentino said. Heiji clapped his hands, “Then it’s settled. Us 4 will enter through the door and defeat Jebediah. We have to believe in this idea, the idea of duality in chaos. I’ve thought about this philosophy while we traveled back to Earth. He is like a finely crafted Camus. It is chaotic in flavor, but orderly. While I am a hardboiled man who pours every soda from the soda fountain into a single drink. I am anarchic chaos. When these two collide, who knows what could happen. What I do know is that this is a case that needs closed, and I’m willing to do just that.” the small group cheered as Heiji put his snorkel back on. He dived into the hole, as he did the camera cut from him jumping into the water, to Shigeshige taking a wash cloth from out of a bucket of water and placing it on Barkas’s head. “I hope he wakes up soon, Prince Enshou. He’s going to be surprised, yet happy to hear just what you did for him. I know that I am.” the Shogun smiled up at Enshou who was listening to Lady Gaga from his WPhone. “I don’t need your mesley input. I did what I had to do. I couldn’t allow Shijaku to die just yet.” Enshou narrowed his eyes at Kondo, who was staring at the picture of Eren, Fumiko, and the children that was hanging on a small cork board next to Enshou’s bed. “Lay your gorilla eyes off of the Dark Lord’s up and coming replacement. The All Powerful Child, Cherry is a minion of Enshou and a spy within the Renho.” Kondo pointed at Fumiko and blushed, “She kind of reminds me of Fake Otae! Can I meet here?” Kondo asked Enshou, but Kondo was completely oblivious to the fact that Eren was also sitting in the room, “That’s my WIFE!” Eren said in a stern tone. “Could you guys please stop yelling?” “B-Barkas! You’re awake!” Shige yelled. “I-I’ll go get your brothers!” Shige ran out of the room excitedly yelling that Barkas had finally woken up. Barkas was examining his surroundings, he doesn’t remember anything after that loud gunshot that rang out during that meeting a week or so ago. His eyes locked on the hospital bed next to him, and the bubble gum pop music coming from it. His eyes widened as he saw the unmistakable red hair and black makeup of the man looking back at him. “So, now that you’re awake are you going to suck my dick?” Barkas sighed at this comment and looked out the window where the large crater was still sitting from a few hours ago. The camera zoomed to where Jebediah had entered that portal and followed behind the man as he was walking in an empty field. It was day time, in the springtime. The wind was subtle, as it rustled the weeds at his knees. He saw a lone man sitting in the clearing, his legs crossed at a sword across his lap. The man looked up and met eyes with Jebediah who simply gave him a smile in return. "So...it appears that I have been killed. What brings you to me Jebediah? What have you done with my brothers?...what has happened to Utsuro?" Jebediah just gave a small chuckle to the God as he sat in his meditative position. "I simply came here to tell you that I have bested your brothers. I may not have killed them...but I needn't kill you, no. Your own brother did that for me. I just feel it is important to let those who have long since passed know of what I am making this world come to. I do not want to end this universe, no. Far from it in fact. Once I finish off the pests that just keep getting away from me, and some very pesky brothers of yours that just won't stay dead. I figured you were the one that kept the seal on my door." Jebediah broke his smile, "The day I regained my conscious mind was the same day you were murdered. Ever since then, I waited for my opportunity, and it came but a mere month ago when this universe almost collapsed on itself." RALRO sat there with his head down, taking in everything. "I may not know what the future holds for me, nor for you. What brings you to me in the first place Jebediah? I am in no shape to kill you, so you know there is no risk. Why are you speaking with me?" RALRO asked. Jebediah snapped his fingers and opened a portal back up. "I just needed to vent to somebody, somebody who is as dead as me." Jebediah stepped into the portal and it quickly closed, leaving a gust of wind ruffling into RALRO's hair. TBC
  6. "You really mean it? I can become just as hard-boiled and tough as you Kozenigata-danna? Frankly, I don't trust Tama to win the million dollars to get me my sick new abs." "Boss, what are we doing with this guy?" Haji said she she put her head against the "Liquid Egg" van. The three were standing in front of a large mansion just outside of the village. Heiji took a puff of his cigar and blew it in the robot's face. Luckily, he has no lungs so it did not effect him. "He's the main character of this story isn't he? I think it will be a cakewalk to get into the Globberian Village with him tagging along. A very hard-boiled plan that will go over-easy." Haji face palmed at the horrible pun and misinformation. "That ISN'T the main character Boss! That's just some clunky robot that freeloads off everyone he meets!" Haji banged her head against the Liquid Egg van yet again. Kintoki ripped the cigar from Heiji's mouth and took a puff himself. "What do you mean I'm not the main character? Don't you see me in every arc? Wavy perm hair, dead fish eyes. You know, I'm hard to miss." Kintoki accidentally swallowed the cigar after he couldn't puff it. Heiji frowned as he lost his last cigar. "Only the main character could do something so magnificent. In fact, I might even say he is most certainly the main character of this specific arc. Haji, this is big, bigger than we both could ever imagine." Haji interrupted him by shoving her phone in his face. It showed Gintoki picking his nose next to a passed out Enshou in the shelter. "HE'S ON THE CURRENT SEASON OF WURVIVOR, THE NAME OF THIS ARC!" Haji yelled. Heiji took a look at her phone and tossed it over the fence of the mansion. Haji shook her head and produced another phone she had stolen. "Who's mansion are we in front of anyway? It's getting dark out so I think their motion sensors or something will go off." Heiji put his foot on the bumper of the van and pointed at the name on the address, "Some fool named Dragon. I figured he was out of town so I parked our van in front of his gates." Heiji said. But, as Heiji said this, a loud HA could be heard coming from the mansion. The three jumped into the van and peered out the passenger side window at the mansion. The watched as the front door of the mansion opened up and they saw a red-haired pirate with an umbrella step out with a man sporting a large nose. "It's always nice catching up with a friend of a friend, Kamui." Jackie Chan patted Kamui on the back while the Harusame leader took a sip of a red slurpee. "Well, I'm not really friends with Shinsuke's husband! I really hope Monika crushes both of them under her feet in Wurvivor!" Kamui said, smiling. Jackie just nervously chuckled as Kamui twirled his umbrella. "So, we're good on the deal, yes? I'll borrow some of your men and we can open up that Long Wohn Silvers just up the road? After building that OLD BASTARD'S house for an entire half of an arc, I've gotten pretty nifty at construction!" Jackie nodded and Kamui smiled back at him. He turned around and noticed the Liquid Eggs van parked out front. Unbeknownst to the three hiding there, they failed to notice the giant ship parked next to them. "Who parked in front of my ship? HA, I'LL JUST DEAL WITH IT MYSELF!" Kamui jumped over the fence and kicked the van. It went spinning down a hill and crashed through one of the drive in theater screens at the base of the mountain. "THIS WAS A RENTAL CAR! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PAY FOR THE DAMAGE AND THE RENTAL!" Heiji yelled as he kicked one of the windows out to crawl out of. The van was sitting upside down, as Haji was hunched over the backseat and Kintoki was in pieces. "I'm guessing you didn't even have the money to rent this in the first place, and took a loan out eh Boss?" Haji said, as she was tossing Kintoki out of the van piece by piece. "Watch the merchandise man! HEY, THAT TORSO IS ABOUT TO PACKED TO THE BRIM WITH ABS!" he yelled as she tossed his body parts in the snowy ground. Haji got his last piece out of the mangled vehicle and climbed out herself. She stood over the discombobulated robot before looking up and seeing Heiji crying on the ground. "It's OK Boss," Haji put her hand on his shoulder, "No matter how much debt you're in, nor how much trouble with the law we're in; the payoff for this humongous job will be enough to keep you afloat." Heiji nodded and stood up, "It's a good thing I was paid a quarter of it in advance Haji." Heiji adjusted his sunglasses and reached into his pocket. "And that's only 1/4th, magnificent no?" Heiji smiled. "I ASSUME YOU JUST STOLE THAT FROM A BOARD GAME?" Haji yelled, knocking the Wonopoly Money from his hands. "No! It was under my pillow when I woke up. I swear on my badge." Heiji began to form a thought bubble: "There I was talking to the man named B.O.D." Heiji began, "THAT IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT YOU! YOU DON'T HAVE LUSCIOUS BLONDE HAIR OR BULGING BICEPS!" Haji interjected. "He poured me a glass of tea, which I vehemently denied. As if a hard-boiled detective such as myself would drink tea. The posh British man was stern when I refused his disgusting beverage. So, I showed him I meant business." "Why are your dreams so simplistic and stick figure like?" Kintoki asked. Heiji ignored the disassembled robot. "He was shocked at my defiance, perhaps scared even. So he said he would back off, and split my cut when I woke up. I'm glad we can find some middle ground, and I'm guess finding this 5000 smackers under my head was the sign I needed. I still got it, hard-boiled blood runs even deep enough to effect my dreams." Heiji said, proud of himself, "Or, your dreams are being hijacked by something with much greater power than we could ever imagine Boss." Haji commented. Heiji waved his finger at her, "Impossible, no one that powerful can interject themselves in a comedy plot line Haji." Heiji picked up Kintoki's lower half, while Haji carried his torso and head. The three made there way back up through the mountains, passing Jackie Chan's mansion, which was now absent of the giant ship. "So, should we dispose of this?" Heiji asked Haji. Kintoki's eyes darkened, "YOU CAN'T THROW ME AWAY! HEY!" Kintoki yelled as Haji opened up a trash can next to the Chan mansion. But as she looked down, she stopped, "WHY ARE THE MOST RANDOM CHARACTERS SHOWING UP!" Kintoki yelled as Haji attempted to close the lid, by Tatsumi stopped the lid, "Oi, don't blow my cover. There's been a spree of arsons in the surrounding area, and Chief David asked me to take post on the outskirts of the Globberian Village. Don't ask why I chose a millionare's trash can, I just figured he wasn't home." Heiji's interest got peaked, "A spree of arsons you say? Seems like a hard boiled case for a scrambled detective like myself." Heiji said, scratching his beard, "They all appear to be by the same person too, they leave a tag behind at each scene. It isn't huge arson, but they're targeting higher up officials, mainly burning a small portion of their government buildings. We suspect they'll target Yuka-danna next." Tatsumi said, adjusting herself in the trashcan. "Us lesbians have to stick together in these trying times!" she grabbed her bicep and flexed. Heiji nodded and jotted down 'less bean' in his notepad. "What does the tag look like?" Heiji asked. Tatsumi pulled out her phone and showed the detective, it was that of a peacock's tail feathers. "We have a lead, but we can't be certain." Heiji smirked. He reached into Kintoki's pockets and pulled out a cigar he hid on him. He lit it and took a big puff, "It isn't anything a little hard boiled evidence collecting can do. Leave it to me maam, I'll catch the culprit. Just after I-" but before he could finish, Tatsumi sprayed him down with a fire extinguisher. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "Welcome back everyone! Are you guys ready to get to today's immunity challenge?" Ketsuno looked at the tribes and noticed that Kibou was missing a member, and one looked completely different. "My! It seems King transformed into an old man and wounded our cameramen and producers! And where is Prince Enshou?" Gintoki stepped forward, "Ketsuno Ana, oh great one, we attempted to wake up Enshou but he would refuse to budge. It seems he's in a coma." Gintoki said, saluting. Ketsuno smiled and pointed her finger at Jirochou. "I would expect a lot more from one of the 4 Devas of Kabuki-chou! Sneaking and cheating your way into the game, and then pulling a sword on staff! Tsk, tsk. We can't have that on Wurvivor! Jirochou, I'm sorry, but we're going to have to pull you from the game." as she said this, a sword came wizzing by her head. She smiled at Pirako, who was the culprit. "I don't want to have to kick two contestants, now would I?" Pirako began to cry as she hugged her dad. "I'm so sorry you have to go-" Jirochou stopped her and gave her a hug. "It wasn't my fault that I cheated my way into this game. It was against my will...I feel disgraced, but I humble accept the consequences. Pirako, win this game for the both of us." Jirochou nodded as he stepped into a helicopter that was waiting for him. Ketsuno turned her attention back to the tribes, "We're still vying for immunity. Someone from the losing tribe is still going home. Considering Enshou is asleep back at camp, we have even tribes today! Today we're going to take a dive in this frozen lake! The tribe who can stay completely submerged the longest wins!" the tribes looked nervous but they had to do it regardless. They all got in position in front of a giant ice hole in the middle of a lake, "Wurvivors ready...GO!" they all jumped in at once, the icy touch of the water tingling their skin...well except for Tama and Monika. Most of the contestants only lasted a minute under the water, coming up for oxygen and climbing out shivering. Katsura and Shinsuke were huddled together on the sidelines, ignoring the tribes. Ketsuno picked up Shinsuke and placed him in the arms of Eren who gave him a big hug. The only remaining players in the water were Monika, Tama, Stephen, and Pirako. The teams were cheering for the respective Tribemates. Eventually, Pirako had to come up after 2 minutes under the water. The contestants cheered for her, while Stephen was the next to come up after 3 minutes, "Helps being a fisherman and stuck with Enshou for years." Stephen said in a confessional. The scene cut back to Tama and Monika doing patty cakes in the water. "I don't think those two are coming up." FDL said, putting her chin in her hands. Ketsuno walked over to the hole and peered down to see the two ladies shaking hands, Tama coming up first. Ketsuno threw her hands up, "Yuuki wins Immunity!" Ketsuno helped the two out of the water, both getting a huge ovation. "Monika-sama and I agreed that sense their tribe hasn't won yet, that we would take the fall tonight!" Tama said, displaying sportsmanship. "Kibou, I'll be seeing you tonight at tribal, Yuuki, you guys get immunity and comfort!" Ketsuno dropped a huge chair on top of Shinsuke, who popped up like an accordion. The camera followed Kibou back to camp, where they all sat around Enshou in the shelter as he remained sleeping. The scene cut to Katsura in confessional: "It's pretty obvious that we must get rid of Enshou-dono. He may rule his planet with Monday Elizabeth, but he completely flaked out on his during this challenge. Plus, he really isn't apart of my alliance. Working with Gintoki, Matako-chan, and The Boss Lady benefits me the best before I can hook back up with Shinny-bear and Monday Elizabeth." the confessional cut to Enshou who was passed out: "LET ME OUT OF THIS CAGE YOU BLITHERING MONGREL! I COMMAND YOU AS MY SUPERIOR BROTHER!" Enshou shook the cage he was in, knocking Suave to the ground. "Could you calm down dude." Suave said, but Enshou lifted him up off the ground. "I'M FUCKING FINE, LOOK AT MY MY MY POKER FACE." Suave just kind of sheepishly smiled at Enshou and picked his sax up. The two sat there in silence for a few moments before a portal from beneath them opened up. "Just what I fucking need, a portal. Ol rick and morty shit." Enshou said. He was staring down at it when Roberta flew out of it and landed hard on the marble floor. Enshou narrowed his eyes and wiped his mascara away, "Worm Lady. You return from the dead to haunt my nightmares. I'll have you know I got over my fears of Freddy Wuger years ago." Enshou said. Roberta face palmed, "That idiot teleported me to an even bigger idiot's dream." Roberta got to her feet and brushed off. "I see you two are in quite the pickle." she looked up at Suave and Enshou. "Can you just let us the hell out. The God of Sexophone is getting on my last nerve." Enshou said, causing Suave to look weary. "Yeah, that damned Jebediah is on the loose! I need to get in touch with my brothers as soon as possible." Suave said. Roberta looked at the cage with perplexity, but a thought occurred to her "Well, I am free from Hell right now, so maybe I can just-" she transformed into her worm form, "Nice!" she opened her mouth and ripped the cage from the ceiling, violently shaking the two inside. However, the cage would not budge. "Well what the hell am I supposed to do?" Roberta went back to her normal form and looked at the two banged up in the cage. In the waking world, the tribe had pretty much all but decided to vote Enshou off. However, Pirako was restless. She was frustrated and decided to lift Enshou out of his bed. The rest of her tribe looked confused and concerned, and didn't even notice the glowing purple crystal. The cage Enshou was in opened and he scrambled to the outside, Suave following close behind. "Finally! I'm getting the hell out of here. Never sleeping ever again." Enshou vanished, causing the room to turn to an empty void. Suave and Roberta stood in the emptiness before Suave took a deep sigh, "Let's go back to hell and get Billy." Roberta nodded as Suave played some notes to open a portal back to Hell. In the waking world, Enshou woke up to Pirako slapping him in the face. "What the makeup." Enshou said, "Your makeup is AWFUL, YOU'VE BEEN CRYING THE ENTIRE TIME YOU'VE BEEN ASLEEP!" Pirako said. Enshou walked over to the water well and looked at his reflection, "Well shit, you're right." Enshou shook his head, deciding to keep his stained make-up. Pirako slapped him again, "They want to vote you off tonight! You slept through the whole challenge today and we lost! Plus, my dad got kicked from the game!" Enshou scratched his chin, "King." Enshou's eyes grew 3 sizes that second. "My...minion was removed from this game..." Enshou hardly couldn't believe it. Pirako slapped him again, "He was forceably removed...something is happening. I just can't put my finger on it. However, I can't let you go in this game Enshou. This is our time to shine. You know what this game is all about? Big moves and striking while the iron is hot." Pirako smirked while Enshou held his head. He leaned against the well. "Look, my head f***ing hurts and I just want to get this tribal over with. I'll vote however you want me to vote." Enshou said walking off. The scene cuts to Pirako in confessional. "I could pull off a huge move and rid the game of a huge threat. I've just got to do some light convincing and I think I can pull off the blindside." the scene cut to Gintoki who was narrowing his eyes. He leaned over and whispered to Katsura, "Oi Zura...I think we should consider splitting the vote tonight." Gintoki said, "Pirako running off with Enshou like that has me really worried." Gintoki said. Katsura nodded in agreement. "I'll talk with Matako-chan, you talk with Tama-dono." Gintoki put a thumbs up as they scrambled before tribal. Before long, it was time to head to the counsel area. The all arrived, dipped their torches in the fire and sat down. "Alright everyone! Shall we get started?" Ketsuno looked at everyone, ignoring Gintoki's heart eyes. "Enshou! Glad to see you were able to drag yourself to tribal! Never have I seen anyone miss a challenge because they were in a small coma!" Enshou narrowed his eyes, "I was trapped by my estranged brother who is threatening to cause so much damage to this universe that even I cannot begin to fathom. With that being said, my neck is on the chopping block. They'd be wise enough not to slice my head off just yet." Enshou said glaring at everyone around him. "Tama, you stayed in that water over 6 minutes! Impressive, but you aren't human so that's to be expected. You gave up immunity to Monika in a sportsmanship-like ma-" but Ketsuno was cut off, "YOU GAVE UP IMMUNITY? Well, if that doesn't show weakness I don't know what does!" Enshou said, throwing his hands up. Tama gave him a straight face, "They needed a win, so I gave them one." Enshou rolled his eyes. "Matako, Enshou has a point. She did throw the challenge," Ketsuno said, "You're right, and it's a good way to look at it. Both of them are in the wrong one way or another." Matako said nodding. "Katsura, is it hard to get along with everyone here?" she asked. "Some more than others I would say Ketsuno-dono." Pirako rolled her eyes, "Pirako, that comment got your attention did it not?" Pirako nodded, "Some people here have friends on either tribe, and some of us are lone wolves. We have to fight from the bottom." Pirako said, Gintoki chimed in: "Yet, that makes the lone wolves the most dangerous no?" Gintoki smiled, "And with that, it's time to vote. Tama, you're up." Tama was the first to get up, and everyone else followed suit: "I just really don't like you." Matako was the last to come back, "I'll go tally the votes," Ketsuno walked to pick up the urn and bring it back, "If anybody has the hidden immunity idol and you'd like to play it, now would be the time to do so." Nobody spoke up, "Once the votes are read the decision is final, the person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. I'll read the votes: First vote," "Enshou." Enshou glared, "Enshou, that's two votes Enshou." "Pirako, that's one vote Pirako, two votes Enshou." "Katsura, that's two votes Enshou, one vote Pirako, one vote Katsura." "Katsura, that's two votes Enshou, two votes Katsura, one vote Pirako." "Pirako, we are tied. 2 votes Enshou, 2 votes Katsura, 2 Votes Pirako. One vote left....4th person voted out of Wurvivor Edo:" "Katsura. That's 3, you need to come bring me your torch." Katsura stood up, "WHAAAAT WHO I ASK! WHO FLIPPED!" Katsura demanded to know. As he asked, Matako raised her hand up high. "No hard feelings when we get back to the ship, eh Katsura-sama?" Matako winked at Katsura who put his head down, "I am disappointed in you Matako-chan...I thought me, you, Monday Elizabeth, and Shinny would be the final four. However, this is a game and I accept defeat." Katsura grabbed his torch and walked over to Ketsuno. "Katsura, your tribe has spoken." Katsura turned back to his tribe, "Gintoki, Tama-dono, Boss Lady. I hope you three can carry the game with integrity. Matako-chan, I'll have a stern talking with you back home." Katsura turned back, "It's time for you to go." Ketsuno said as Katsura waved back as he walked away. "Well, it's about time, but I believe we got our first true blindside of the season. Grab your torches and head back to camp, goodnight." Ketsuno signed off the show. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Yuka turned around in her swing and locked eyes with Jebediah. "Oh! What a sight to behold! The quaint Queen of Globberius in her completed form! My, oh my a sight never to be seen in the waking for sure." Jebediah snickered as a cup of tea appeared in his hands. He snapped his other hand's fingers and a table complete with chairs, cloth, and a tea set appeared. "Care to join me, or are you too busy lollygagging in your dream. Your day to day life must be quite stressful indeed Madam!" "The Wockphoto fits quite nicely for me, no?" Yuka stopped swinging and stood up. "You look exactly like someone I've met in real life. Someone I don't like associating with. Whether this is just some wicked part of my dream, inserting his face on someone, then so be it." Yuka took a seat across from Jebediah as he poured her a cup of tea. "Well, at least you're more gentlemanly than that caterpillar browed freak." Yuka looked at her tea, seeing the reflection of her and Sofia combined. Something that always kept her comfort even in her most darkest days while dreaming. "Well, that's most exquisite to hear, no? I haven't received such kind words in quite some time. But to hear something like that from you Madam, it's quite reassuring." Jebediah took a sip of his tea and gestured for Yuka to do the same. Yuka picked up her tea cup and stared at it for a few minutes. "Go ahead, I mean no harm! Besides, nothing bad can happen in a dream." Yuka narrowed her eyes as she took a sip from the tea. Jebediah smiled and sat his cup down. "I'd like to at least continue my generosity by being blunt with you and cutting to the thick of this. I'm here to ask you about your long time lover, Roberta." Yuka sat her cup down and gave Jebediah a look of discomfort. "I figured perhaps...you dream of this woman from time to time. She was in your life for a long time, and an important life at that! It's just so fascinating you know? How she has this other worldly ability to just come back to life." Jebediah smiled. "No. I rarely dream of that woman. And if I did, it's a dream I don't remember." Jebediah adjust his cravat. "Hmm, I figured perhaps she would get permission from that old Billy down below to come see you more often. Perhaps he's tightened up on his dream skipping! Either way, now that I have skipped host off that disgusting git I called my brother, I think this place will suit me nicely. Don't you think, Yuka? It is hard functioning as one half of yourself after all." Yuka slammed the tea up on the table, causing a bit of it to drip on the table cloth. "My, getting quite antsy aren't we Madam? Never mind me, but your dreamworld is prime for me to lay in. Your brain is under constant stress and anxiety. Those are easy for me to wall myself with and lay low from those pesky Gods." Yuka lounged at Jebediah, but he caught her by the arm and tossed her over his hip. "Don't even try Madam. I can read your movements, it is your brain after all!" Jebediah snapped his fingers and Yuka quickly raised herself out of bed. She put a green arm up to her head and let out a sigh. She looked at her door, which began to creek open, "Uhm, Sorella. Yous were makin noise in your sleep. I hope you're doin alright." Valentino walked into the room, flanked by Heiji, Haji, and Kintoki. "Who are those three people Valentino." Yuka said, rubbing her liquid eyes. Valentino rubbed his neck, "Uhh, dees guyz say they're detectives or somethin. They seem completely haamless ya know?" Valentino said while shrugging. Yuka just put her head down, "Fine, what brings you guys to my bedroom at 1am?" Yuka asked. Heiji slapped a map up on Yuka wall. It was adorned with yarn and pins with pictures all over it. "As you can see Majesty Yuka, I have cooked my thoughts long enough for them to become completely hard boiled. Racking my brain over why I was sent here, the serial arsons, the peacock feathers." "Uhm. Valentino...could you turn my lights on." Yuka interrupted. Valentino walked over the flicked the lights on. As they brightened the room, Yuka's face went dark. "The culprit may very well be dressed just like this." Yuka punched Heiji in the jaw, sending him flying to the floor. Haji picked her boss up and propped him up in a chair, putting a tooth back into his head. "As I was saying, a lot of recent events have been connecting together. See here:" Heiji pointed at the words "Kabuki". "The Kabuki-cho in Edo is ran by 4 Devas. Otose, Saigou, Hime Kada, and Jirochou the Gallant. If you've been keeping up with the latest season of Wurvivor as Haji has been, you'll have seen that Jirochou was outed as faking his identity in the game for unknown reasons. Seen in the extra features online that the Wurvivor Woutube channel posted, we can see that he was complaining of a so called "red haired man"." Yuka's interest was perked now, "Otose's Snack Bar was completely obliterated, what caused it you may ask? The scrimmage with the Skolexians is a decent answer...but I have my doubts. Following leads given to me by this blonde haired bucket of bolts was enough yolk to get to middle of this mystery. As for Hime Kada...it's obvious she is behind these arsons....but is she really? Perhaps something, or someone, is trying to further tarnish her name. That leaves us with Saigou, the Divine Mademoiselle. How he is linked in all this is a mystery to this hard boiled detective...but I did happened to dig around and find out a certain red-haired Burian works there part time. That leave me to the boiling hot question...who is this B.O.D...this red haired man. Perhaps, you know something about him Yuka-sama?" Heiji turned to her. Haji clapped for her Boss's performance. Yuka was impressed too, "I'm...quite shocked. I also know of this red haired man. He just visited me in a dream. Valentino, keep the capital under high alert for any suspicious activity." Valentino gave Yukes a thumbs up and headed out of her door. "As for you three, you can rest in the guest bedroom for the night. I'm sure you've had quite the long day." Yuka showed them off and sat in her room alone. The lights turned off as she looked out her window to the village she overlooked. "Maybe that red haired freak was right...I'm stressed out way too much." ----------------------------------------------------------- "I really hope they aren't looking for me." Elizabeth was looking at Isaburo and Tetsunosuke sitting at a table, grabbing a bite to eat. He pulled his hood over his head more, turning away from the officers but trying to eavesdrop on their convo. They weren't saying a whole lot, which made Elizabeth even more nervous. 'Please just leave, please just leave, please just leave.' he kept begging to himself. But, his thoughts were interrupted when the door to the bar opened. Isaburo spoke up, "Skeleton Bonestein, Mutsu. Glad to have you guys." Isaburo shook both their hands as the couple sat down opposite of the two cops. Tetsu kept silent as he older brother was leading the questioning. "Glad to meet up with you!" Skele said in his cheerful manner. Mutsu just looked annoyed. Isaburo pulled out his phone and began to text, "So, you two were at the """egg restaurant""" the same day the Shogun was poisoned correct?" Isaburo asked. "Yeah, we tried to help, but this really tough wrestling guy got in our way. Needless to say, Mutsu kicked his butt! She was a tough as I've ever seen anyone." Skele said, complimenting his girlfriend. Isaburo was still texting, "Mhm, and was the wrestling guy perhaps linked to the culprit?" Isaburo asked. "Well, he showed up claiming someone attacked his friends. Then he got sent through the window. Oh Mutsu, did you hear that Oboro had his wallet stolen? Tatsuma was texting me about it, but I just kind of shrugged it off you know? He's rich, I'm sure he can afford a new wallet." Mutsu rolled her eyes. This peaked Isaburo's interest as he looked up from his phone. He turned to his younger brother, "Testu, this is your chance to make yourself useful. Got to Ikumatsu Ramen, I'm sure that Jizz Brained man will be there as he always is." Isaburo said. Tetsu reluctant stood up and made his way out the door. Ikumatsu Ramen was a few doors down, so it wasn't a hassle. But, Tetsu felt his brother was just trying to rid him so he could get his work done easier. He sighed as he pushed the flap open. "Welcome! Sit anywhere you'd like!" Ikumatsu said with a smile. As expected, Oboro was sitting at the bar nearest Ikumatsu with Poe resting on the bar in front of him. Tetsu looked at the man, who gave up an aura he couldn't even imagine. Dark waves were coming off of him as he sat there, peaking at his ramen. The bird turning its head as he too was eating the noodles. Tetsu tensed up as he neared the man who did not look up from his bowl. An ever sense of dread coming over him, he was meeting someone so dangerous, so famous, and important. He was trembling as he inched closer, and before he knew it, they were within feet. Poe noticed and flew up to Oboro's shoulder. Oboro's waves began to give off an even stronger sense before he turned and made eye contact with the Shinsengumi. "Oh hey, do you want my autograph or something mister police officer?" Tetsu sat down next to Oboro and his face hit the bar. Oboro nodded and went back to his bowl. "I was asked to come interview you about the day you had your wallet stolen. I just got really nervous because my brother expects so much from me...or so I think." Tetsu said pulled out a notepad. Oboro scratched his chin, "Yes, that was an interesting day wouldn't you say Poe? I was telling Ikumatsu-dono all about it, vented to her about that whole day. Let me tell you, it just got weirder from there on out." Oboro said turning to the Shinsengumi. "There I was, walking the snow streets with Poe. Sun-dono was out, smiling at us as I continued my stroll after running into that Lady who asked for eggs. My wallet went missing around that time, but I was too busy taking in the beautiful day in Edo. It's not often I travel here, it was a nice change in pace. I wrapped up the latest batches of TV filming and had plenty of free time. Poe suggested that since I lost my wallet, that I should head to the park and maybe play some ultimate Wrisbee with all the cute single guys and single girl birds. But, those plans were dashed the moment I bumped into a most peculiar individual. I knew he meant trouble the moment I locked my eye on him. I turned to Poe and told him to watch from above while I deal with this man." ""Sir, what brings you here, looking as though you want to start trouble."", "That's what I told him. Pretty cool right? Anyway, the man turned to face me, taking his straw hat off to face me mano y mano. That was when I knew he meant business. He picked me up by my shoulders and hoisted me in the air like I was a ragdoll. Never had been manhandled this much since Universe 4. It was perhaps one of the most terrifying moments in my entire life. The man was no mere human, he had to be part Amanto. However, the great and awesome Oboro would never back down from this challenge. He may have nearly dislocated both of my shoulder blades, but my warrior spirit would prevail. With my lack of male genitalia, I was able to split my legs apart and completely wrap them around his waist. A smart move on my part, hmph, he didn't even see it coming. Poe I could tell was in complete aw and shock as I managed to suplex the giant beast down directly on his head. The onlookers cheered and clapped as I stood triumphant over the foe. However...what came next was perhaps the most humiliating thing to happen to me in quite some time, and the reason I needed to vent to Ikumatsu-dono...the beast was still hungry for blood. And with my back turned, it striked. Before I knew it, my trousers were around my ankles and my boxers with bird print patterns was revealed for the world to see. Paparazzi was there to catch the whole act...I am ashamed but not surprised by what happened. So, I had to come here and spill my soul to one person I knew who would listen." Tetsu was staring blankly at him the entire time, "So could you describe the person who took your wallet?" Tetsu asked. Oboro gave him the classic face, "Uh yeah, it was a girl, had a scar on her face. Brown hair I think." Poe cawked in agreement. Tetsu stood up and bowed, "Thank you, that's all I needed." he marched out of the ramen shop and quickly headed back to the bar. Oboro turned back to face Ikumatsu, "I really do talk too much don't I Ikumatsu-dono...I heard from the Wurvivor Television Program that you were widow to Kurokuno-dono, the former Joui patriot. Your husband was a good man Ikumatsu-dono, you should be proud of what he accomplished that day on Koukan." Ikumatsu smiled as she was cleaning her wok, "It has been hard...to have no one to talk to about this, but I think I may have found that person recently. We both get the same type of customers, always giving us their life story. Not that I don't mind Oboro-san, it's just that, I think we really understand each other on that level. He's a really nice guy." Oboro smiled at this and paid his tab plus tax. "He is a good man Ikumatsu-dono, I hope he too can do what you do for me." Oboro nodded his head as he walked out of the ramen shop. Ikumatsu smiled, thinking of the newly kindled friendship she formed with Pakuyasa over the last few days, something she began to look forward to more and more. TBC
  7. "Welcome Edo TO THIS VERY SPECIAL EDITION OF WURVIVOR!" the camera zooms into a snowy mountain top, The person turned around and faced the camera, "I'll be your host for this season of Wurivor, Ketsuno Ana!" "Can you believe this? She gets a TV gig this big and doesn't even summon me up there to be her assistant." Gendomaru crossed her arms as she leaned back in her Wazyboy. Billy rolled his eyes while Ungyou's tear was finally cleaned up by Roberta using a handkerchief. The scene goes back to the TV where Ketsuno gestures out to the empty air, "16 Contestants will compete against the elements and against themselves to claim the prize of 1 million dollars and the title of Sole Wurvivor! Let's meet our contestants for this season!" Ketsuno smiled as the scene faded as the contestants were introduced, "I'm Takasugi Shinsuke and I'm for sure not a terrorist and totally a peaceful activist. I'm playing Wurvivor to prove I'm better than Gintoki and win the million dollars. If I win, I'll probably just take my husband on a really nice second honeymoon. I plan to play ruthless, I was a villain in the first arc for a reason you know." "My name is Doromizu Pirako! I'm playing on behalf of my father who is old and out of shape! We're mega Wurvivor fans, so this has been a dream of ours for a long time! I'm glad to finally be introduced to TBC this way." "Nobume Imai, everyone should be familiar. The Dick-Slaying, Pussy Destroyer Elite of all Elite is here to play Wurvivor. What would I do if I won the million dollars? Probably move out and live by myself so Isaburo would just leave me alone." "Why am I playing Wurvivor? Simple, Lord Enshou is playing and I just so happen to be living in Edo full-time to study TBC. I hope to be put on the same tribe as the Greatest Man Alive, but that remains to be seen. If I win the million dollars, I'm giving it all to Enshou." "I'm Shimura Tae! I work as a hostess, it's the best I can really do for me and Shin-chan. I hope to win the prize money so we can help rebuild Otose's Snack Bar and perhaps open up our dojo! Not that way of course!" "Kijima Matako. I'm only playing this stupid game because Shinsuke-sama and Kyuubey-chan said I had to. If I win the million dollars, I'm opening up my own music shop and ditching those smelly dudes." "Z." "Eren, of the Renho! Finally, getting the opportunity to compete in a game show, reality show hybrid! It's about time I got my moment to shine. Playing with my best friend, Zura is going to be so much fun. If I win the million? Oh, I'll fund my kids for the rest of their lives! No worries cause daddy's bringing the title of Sole Wurvivor home babies!" "My name is Takasugi Kotarou, and that is totally just a coincidence that I have the same name and look very similar to this person. I swear I am not a terrorist. If I win the title of Soul Wurvivor, I'll use the money to sprucen up our ship and take Shinny on a very very nice date." "I'm Lily, the real star of Lilymu! I'm playing just so I can totally blow this gig at Lilymu and work at the top with Tokyo's A-listers. I gotta play as dirt as like possible so I'm going to backstab everybody to get to the top, like I've always done!" "The name is Stephen Harvestein, and I'm First Captain under Lord Enshou. Playing Wurvivor has always been a dream of mine, and I've got some people that need helping out back in the real world. Hoping we can secure that million dollars and get their business back afloat!" "Just getting the chance to speak in TBC is enough to make me happy. If I win the million, I'm ditching Ozu's old ass behind and starting a new life in Wegas." "I'm Monika! Hehe, I'm playing for the rest of my crew back at the Harusame! Go, Pirates Go! With my prize money, I'll be able to accompany each room on our ship with cherry slushee machines! I know what's what our Chief would want! I'm just a video game character so I don't have much need for money." "Oi I'm Sakata Gintoki and my house exploded. I need the million dollars so I can sleep at night." "I'm Tama and I'm playing on behalf of Genghai-sama and Otose-sama. And also...Kintoki-sama wants waxed on abs." "Hello puny humans, I need no introduction. The million dollars I'm going to win is going straight to buying make up and more sex toys." The screen fads back to Ketsuno Ana smiling, "And there you have our contestants! Come on out guys!" Ketsuno claps as the 16 contests walk out in front of her. "Alright guys, are you ready to begin Wurvivor?" the contestants cheered excitedly, Gintoki even salivating at the sight of the host. "First things first, we gotta make two tribes. Everyone reach into this bucket and pull out a buff. Yellow buffs stand over on the Yellow mat, you'll be the Yuuki Tribe. Orange buffs stand on the orange mat, you'll be the Kibou Tribe!" the 16 of them all reached into the bucket and pulled out a small package with their buffs. "We made sure the teams were even, so you'll be getting 4 girls and 4 guys on each team! Everyone reveal your buffs." Everyone revealed, taking their place on the mats. Ketsuno walked in between them, "For the Yuuki Tribe we have: FDL, Lily, Saitou, Monika, Eren, Nobume, Shinsuke, and Stephen! For the Kibou Tribe we've got: Otae, Gintoki, Pirako, Katsura, Tama, Enshou, Matako, and King!" the scene cuts to Shinsuke with his head down at confessional, "Of course I'm playing the beginning of this game without Honey. To be away from him even until the merge, this is going to be heartbreaking. But I'm a big boy, I can do this." the scene cuts back to the contestants putting their buffs on. Ketsuno steps aside and shows the two tribes to their campsites. "Tomorrow, you guys will compete for immunity and the following night, someone from the losing tribe will be voted out," Ketsuno turned to the camera, "39 Days, 16 contestants, 1 WURVIVOR!" Gedomaru turned the TV off and laid back in her seat. Billy sneered as he cracked the billiards on the table, "Aw come on Gedo, why you gotta turn it off? Don't you want to see those numbskulls suffer in the cold?" Billy looked over as Ungyou blinked in his direction, "Oh yeah and you can just shut your fucking yap over there ya?" "..." Ungyou retorted. Billy had to be restrained by Gedo and Roberta as he was lunging at the headed one. --------------------------------------------------------------- Skele and Mutsu were sitting in a quiet cafe by themselves, or at least so they thought. It was their first date since that fateful kiss they had at the cabin. Mutsu got away from work for the first time in what felt like forever, and crime was significantly down since the universe unreseting. A lot of goodwill, and happy people in the city, so it made Skele's job much easier. The two decided to meet up at this brand new cafe that sprung up in the middle of Edo while reconstruction was happening. "So...all they serve here is black coffee and egg products? Doesn't seem vegan friendly you know. I have a few vegan friends in the Hero Association!" Skele said as he was scanning the menu. Mutsu put her hand on his free hand, causing him to blush, "All that matters is we get to hang out on our day off you know?" Mutsu said, smiling at Skele. From beyond the table, a pair, who looked to be the owners of the cafe looked on, "Boss, do you really think this is a good idea? Why did we build an entire Egg-based Cafe just to get information on these two? Can't we just do espionage or something?" Haji asked, but Heiji put a finger to her lips, "We have to do this the hard-boiled way Haji. There isn't anyway around this conundrum. Take a look at these two...holding hands. Just what I'd expect." Heiji set the clipboard down on the counter and spread out a bunch of pictures of Skele and Mutsu together. "Why did you even take this job Boss? This is just gossip magazine digest at best!" Haji said, but Heiji hushed her as he smiled. "Are you two fine people ready to order?" Heiji said with a large smile. Haji sighed as she gathered up the pictures and stacked them neatly. Mutsu shot daggers at him while Skele smiled back, "I think I'll take a coffee, with extra sugar and creamer if that's possib-" but Heiji snatched the menu from Skele's hands as a vein popped out of his hand, "Boss what are you doing!" Haji whispered loudly. Heiji sighed and jotted down the order, almost sending the pencil through the notepad as he wrote. "I'll take an order of 3 scrambled eggs, 2 egg Benedict, 2 poached eggs, 2 fried eggs, and 1 sunny-side up egg. Black coffee." Mutsu said. Heiji's face went dark as he wrote down the order. He bowed and took the two menus from them and quickly scrambled up to Haji, "Haji...I only brought one egg into the kitchen." Heiji whispered to her. Her face went dark as she slammed the clipboard down. "You're going to have to sneak through the back and steal some eggs from that farmer next door." Heiji pointed out the window, "What the heck are you looking at? I'm not even a damned farmer, me and BH are doing a skit!" Bores yelled, but the two detectives couldn't hear him from inside the cafe. Haji nodded, as she was a former thief, this was her expertise. She got down on the floor and began to crawl like Snake, but turned around when she heard the bell at the front door ring, "IT'S THE SHOGUNNNNNNNNNN" Heiji and Haji both said in tandem. Haji scrambled as quickly as possible out of the back of the kitchen while Heiji raised the notepad in front of him as he shook violently, sweat beating down his face. "Oi...you guys only serve black coffee? Sho-chan really like apple juice-" Pops was cut off as Heiji magically produced Apple Juice from behind his back. In reality, it was something far worse than apple juice. Shige took the glass and inspected it, "Matsudaria-san, why do you suppose this apple juice is pixelated?" Heiji tugged at the collar of his shirt as Matsudaria looked at the glass himself. "I'm not sure Sho-chan, maybe it's homemade?" Pops said, scratching the scruff on his chin. Pops picked up his menu, "I think me and Sho-chan will just get an order of scrambled eggs." Heiji quickly jotted down the order and scrambled to the kitchen. He attempted several times to light his lighter before eventually sparking up a cigar and starting up the gas oven. He opened to mini fridge he used personally and pulled out a single egg that was sitting next to a half empty bottle of Wack Daniels. He closed the fridge and looked at the coffee pot, dripping down to the bottom. He reviewed the orders and cringed at Skele's order. He walked next to the stove and brushed the dust and cobwebs from it. When he opened it he heard, as bugs and dust scattered all over the kitchen. The sugar and creamer were caked in dust as he took it from its nearly final resting place. He poured three cups, and put the dusty and old creamer/sugar in Skele's cup. He sighed and walked back to the dining area and began to hand out the coffee. Pops took a big sip and gave a satisfied smile. Mutsu took a sip of hers as she still shot daggers at him, which caused him to gulp. Skele stared at his cup, as the sugar came up to the top lumped together. Heiji hurried back to the kitchen, leaving the couple to themselves, "Why did you order that many eggs Mutsu?" Skele asked, examining his dreadful looking coffee. Mutsu downed her whole cup and shattered the mug against the table, "I don't trust those two, plus I need to reach my macro limit before I work out later." Mutsu said, showing Skele her killer abs. Skele blushed, as did Mutsu as she realized what she did. The Shogun began to sip at the """apple juice""" while Heiji looked from a creek in the door. He hid behind it after seeing the Shogun do that, praying that Haji would quickly make it back with the eggs. The scene shifted to Haji hiding inside a hay bail, watching Bores and Hercules going over their script. "Alright so you just stand over there and act like a pig or something," Bores said. BH nodded in agreement, but Haji just couldn't help herself, "He certainly looks like one." she said just loud enough, still hidden. BH swung his sword around, but ended up falling into a pile of snow. "YOU IDIOT, YOU'RE RUINING OUR PROPS!" Bores attempted to get off the hay bail, but stumbled, "Woah!" he fell off the hay bail and knocked himself out on impact with the ground. Haji quickly looked around and ran past the two and looked around the farm. "What the...these two aren't even real farmers!" Haji picked up a toy chicken that squawked at her. "Hey, who's messing with Bore's pet chicken out there! Bores where are you? It's dark...I'm scared, really really scared." BH said as the audience clapped for his catchphrase. Haji threw the bird down, causing it to shatter into a million pieces, but that action caused an uproar. A bird flew in and started pecking at her, "Hey, OW! WATCH IT!" Haji shielded herself, but heard a voice call out, "Poe! Calm down, it was simply plastic." Haji looked up and saw the dumb face of Oboro walking up to her. He looked at me with his banter face before switching back to serious Oboro looking down at Haji. "What caused you the destruction of this plastic bird? Certainly it did nothing to you." Oboro said. Haji sighed, "I need eggs to feed my...customers?" Haji said. Oboro nodded, "Well, it just so happens that I have the whole month off since my co-star is competing in a reality television program. Ozu-dono was kind enough to give us the month off as he re-furnished his penthouse. I was about to go to the store and pick up an assortment of fruit and vegetables for me and Poe to cook. We don't usually have the time to make delicious home made meals like we used to with this extremely busy schedule of filming, media appearances, other filming for commercials and sponsorships. Not to mention having to save the entire universe on a near monthly basis. To say me and Poe are busy is a complete understatement. We had to shoot a scene the day I un-reset the universe, like are you kidding me? But, I love acting so it's something I can really sink my teeth into. Sensei always told me a day lost is a day wasted. So, I have to use each day to its fullest. Perhaps even meeting and talking to you today was just what I needed to push forward. Meeting new people is always great, since I always meet fans and giving them autographs. I'm not like most celebrates who push their fans away, I am very approachable. Perhaps you would like mine?" Oboro was too busy monologuing and staring off into space to not realize Haji was already long gone. "She stole my wallet didn't she Poe." Poe simply beakwinged as Haji was sprinting to the small market down the street. She quickly bought two dozen eggs and raced past the stunned Oboro, dropping his wallet off at his feet. Haji kicked the back door and threw the eggs at Heiji who swiftly caught them and began to crack them gracefully into the pans. Each egg beginning to cook to perfection, both were following the instructions Mutsu had given them, each egg being cooked the way she asked. Heiji and Haji cleaned the sweat off their heads as they marveled at their culinary accomplishment. Each egg was cooked accordingly, seasoned perfectly, the aroma filling the kitchen as Heiji put his cigar out in an ash tray, "Haji, in all my years of detective work, this has got to be my greatest, most hard boiled task I've ever completed...no, we've ever completed." Haji sniffed as a tear ran down her cheek. "Are you ready to see those happy faces glowing with excitement Boss?" Haji asked. Heiji simply smiled as he tipped his Eggscellent hat before opening the door to the diner. "SHO-CHAN, STAY WITH ME!" Heiji and Haji's eyes darkened as they saw Matsudaria bent down, holding Shige's head up. The """apple juice""" glass was empty and the "blood" coming from Shige's mouth dripped onto Pops. "Matsudaria-san...I don't know what that apple juice was but...I could really go for some eggs right about now." Shige said, beginning to struggle to his feet. Skele and Mutsu stayed seated watching the madness unfold in front of them. "Sh-should we just leave Mutsu?" Skele asked, but Mutsu closed his jaw shut and pointed at Heiji and Haji holding her eggs. "Bring me my eggs." Mutsu said. Heiji slowed walked to the table, passing by Shige as he puked out the """"apple juice"""" thankfully, Pops did not notice him. He slowly placed the eggs in front of Mutsu before scurrying back to the kitchen. Haji walked over the placed the eggs on the table Shige and Pops were sitting at. Haji also booked it back to the kitchen, peering through to door at Mutsu who was downing her eggs. Pops lifted up Shige and yelled, "IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?!" at that, the front door of the cafe slammed open, "Time is money...and I am the Doctor of Pain." Takatin ripped the door off the cafe and tossed it to the street outside. His snatched the Shogun from Matsudaria and hit him with a backbreaker and then did a leg drop on top of him. Takatin stood up, "I'm looking for the fool who disrespected my friend, Best Hercules. Someone who does my tag team partner wrong, does me wrong." Takatin glared around the cafe. Pops shot his gun at Takatin, but the large muscular man caught the bullet in between his pecs. Matsudaria was shocked and looked down at the Shogun, who was completely knocked out. Skele was sweating, somehow, as he turned back to his girlfriend who completely devoured her eggs. She stood up and met eyes with the large man. "So, it was you. BH did say it sounded like a woman." Takatin cracked his knuckles but was met with Mutsu punching him so hard that it sent him flying through the window and falling on top of Bores and BH while they were looking in. "Come on Skele, let's go somewhere else for our date. Away from this chumps." Skele smiled nervously as she scooped him up and carried him out of the Cafe. Haji and Heiji's darkened faces looked on as Pops carried Shige out of the cafe, crying as loud as he could. "Boss, who even sent us to document these two? This seems rather dangerous." Haji asked. Heiji lit up another cigar, "Some sucker going by the name B.O.D." he said, taking a puff. "Let's continue tailing those two Haji, we can't let them slip through our fingertips so easily." --------------------------------------------------- "KIBOUU, WINS IMMUNITY!" Ketsuno yelled as she through her hands up. Enshou came to a halt and stuck his tongue out on a snowboard. "I had no idea he was that good at snowboarding." Stephen said, pretty impressed with Enshou. "There's a lot of things you don't know about me babe." Enshou said, throwing up a shakabrah. "Kibou, come get your immunity. You guys are safe tonight, no tribal council. Head on back to camp. Yuuki, you've got a date with me at tribal council where someone will be the first person voted off Wurvivor Edo. I got nothing for you, head on back to camp." Ketsuno said with a smile. The Yuuki Tribe reached camp and Shinsuke plopped down in the shelter. It cut to a confessional with Stephen, "Well today's challenge was pretty difficult. Having to hit a backflip off the slopes. How I didn't know Master Enshou knew how to snowboard is beyond me, but damn did he kill us in that challenge." Stephen said sighing. The confessional cuts to another one with Enshou, "They doubted me, but now they'll see just how useful I can be." Enshou said, but the scene cuts to him sleeping in the shelter and not helping around camp. The scene cuts back to the Yuuki tribe who was scrambling on who to vote out. Lots of players were splitting up in pairs. Lily and FDL were standing just outside of camp in a small patch of the forest, "So, OK, here me out FDL. We get out that old geezer and get some kind of girls alliance going. Though, we'd need one of the boys to flip." Lily said. FDL thought about it and it cut to her sitting at a confessional, "I don't think that bitch even knows my real name. She's been working with me for years and years now and she's never once said 'hello' to me. Though numbers are important, so if I have to, then I'll work with her." Another confessional starts up, "Couldn't trust that FDL as far as I could throw her." The scene cuts to Shinsuke laying in the shelter with Nobume and Eren. "I miss Honey." Shinsuke said. Eren nodded, "I miss Fumiko." he said. Nobume sighed, "I should just vote one of your asses out tonight and go with the girls." Nobume said. Shinsuke glared at her, "After all we've done together? You're always hanging out with me and Zura." Nobume rolled her eyes and got up out of the shelter. Eren shrugged at Shinsuke. "So, who are we voting tonight? I assume we're going to work together to get to the merge right Shinny?" Eren asked. Shinsuke reluctantly agreed. The scene cut to a confessional of Eren, "Me and Shinsuke haven't always got along, but I think we can let bygones be bygones and play a little co-op. Cause this game for sure isn't a single player one." the scene cut to Monika talking with FDL as the two tended to the fire. "So Lily wants to get out Stephen? Well I suppose he's a threat later on down the line, but I'm not sure if it's the smartest decision. We need strength and well..." Monika peered over to Lily who was struggling to bring a small twig to the firepit. FDL and Monika both gave each other the look of, yeah she should probably go. Meanwhile, while everyone was distracted, Stephen had slipped out of camp and was looking for the hidden immunity idol. He was frantically searching each crevice and nook of the trees, rocks, river and everywhere in between. But unknown to him and everyone else, Saitou had found the idol without barely even trying, (art by anele) 'I found this ugly thing laying by a tree and found an Idol inside of it.' Saitou signed, through the Elizabeth plush in the fire. Eren twinged in the shelter as his self was being burned unbeknownst to him. Stephen gave up his idol search and sat de-jected at the shelter. Saitou patted him on the back as he hid the idol in his afro. The day was waning, so it was time for tribal counsel. The 8 made their way to the site and sat down in front of Ketsuno. The eight castaways walk into an indoor, tribal looking area with a fire brewing. The take their torches and begin to light them in the fire. "Fire represents life in this game, go ahead and dip it in there and have a seat." Ketsuno said. The 8 took their seats, "My, my, doesn't everyone look chipper?" Ketsuno asked. The contestants all groaned. "Eren, how's tribe life? Everything as chipper as this back at camp?" "Well, I suppose. Lots of sleeping, lots of whispers, but I think everything is pretty alright past this murky surface." he replied. Lily gave him a confused look, "Lily, you got an issue with that?" Ketsuno asked. She nodded, "Some people are more difficult to work with than others, some don't even want to work at all. Just sit around and do nothing." Lily said rolling her eyes. "Shinsuke, does she make a good point?" Ketsuno asked. He shrugged, "Well, she just kind of looks at her nails all day. Reminds me of some other blonde on the other tribe." Lily growled at Shinsuke who just chuckled. "Stephen, let's talk idols. You guys know they're out there, do you think anyone's got one?" Ketsuno leaned in, "Well Ketsuno, I'm not really sure! Some people today I'm sure went looking but came up empty. Perhaps, there's just no idols this season?" Ketsuno nodded, "Perhaps! Saitou, the challenge today, pretty tough. Snowboarding can take some learning curves but you performed pretty well out there today. Do you think being a physical threat poises danger?" Saitou sat there, with a sleep bubble. Ketsuno nodded and moved on to Monika, "What about you Monika? You seem to be a physical threat too." she asked, "Well, I was an athlete at school before I came to Edo, but having physically strong people early in the game is very important, perhaps weeding out the weaker ones are priority." but Nobume spoke up, "Or get rid of the physical threats first and deal with the social threats later in the game." Nobume said, smirking. FDL added, "She's right, it's not always the weakest person we should focus on, but perhaps the physical threat!" she said. Tension was building in the tribe as they were murmuring to each other. Ketsuno stood up, "With that, it's time for our first vote. Lily, you're up." Lily made her way to the voting booth, as did everyone else in following sequence. "You're way too dangerous to keep in this game, sorry old man." "Rather you than me, hey my first voting confessional! Love you Fumiko!" The rest of the tribe voted without confessionals. The last person took their seat, "I'll go tally the votes." Ketsuno walked off to grab the urn. She brought it back and sat it upon a podium. "If anyone has the hidden immunity idol and you'd like to play it, now would be the time to do so." Ketsuno looked around, but no one stood up to play the idol. "Ok, once the votes are read the decision is final, the person voted off will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. I'll read the votes." she took out one parchment, "First vote," "Lily." "Lily, that's two votes Lily." "Stephen, that's 1 vote Stephen, 2 votes Lily." "Stephen, we're tied 2 votes Stephen, 2 votes Lily." "Shinsuke, that's 1 vote Shinsuke." "We are tied again, 2 votes Stephen, 2 votes Lily, 2 votes Shinsuke." "Lily, that's 3 votes Lily, 2 votes Stephen, 2 votes Shinsuke, 1 vote left." Ketsuno pulled out the last vote, "First person voted out of Wurvivor Edo, Lily." "That's 4, that's enough. I need you to bring me your torch." Lily shook her head and stood up, "You'll all regret not voting out that Old Man." Shinsuke looked around, "Who the hell voted for me?" Nobume smiled at him devlishly while Saitou Z'd. "A white and a black coat working together, I'll be damned." Lily picked her torch up and placed it in front of Ketsuno. "Lily, the tribe has spoken." "It's time for you to go." Ketsuno gave her a smile while Lily stormed off. "Well that was an exciting first tribal, hopefully keeping strength over social was the right moves. Grab your stuff and head back to camp, goodnight." the 7 castaways got their stuff and headed back to their campsite. Lily sat at the confessional and gave her farewell message, "Well it was certainly something. I got away from the Lilymu cast for a few days, so that's really nice." Lily shrugged and walked away. The scene cuts to Enshou twitching in his sleep, "A little rough tonight aren't Bro?" Enshou stared down at B.O.D who was bowing to Enshou to say sorry, "I won't be as rough next time oh Dark Overlord! Just please, try and bring that man into your dream! Think of the excellent o-" but he was cut off by Enshou, "I have to focus on this game Idiot. I'll try tomorrow for sure, but I'm pretty beat from that snowboarding." B.O.D looked dejected as Enshou vanished. Enshou had woken up to relieve himself. B.O.D stood up and sighed, pouring himself some wine, swishing it in the cup. "Oh Jeb, Jeb, Jeb, Jeb. You're getting closer and closer to that Saxophone Wielding Git. But, once you do, their healer is out, you make your move." he smiled to himself as the classical music played in the background. "Now, if those detectives would just do their job and get me more intel on the Globberians and the Joushishi..." he put his fingers to his chin. "I'll have to contact my liaison in the land of the waking to get my updated." he quickly put the wine away when he heard the bedroom door creek open. "Ready for Round 2, Idiot." Enshou asked. B.O.D. nodded in acceptance. -------------------------------------------------------------------- "Yukes ain't come outta her room ina few days. I'm gettin kinda worried bout her." Valentino was leaning on a carhood in the Wrooklyn part of Globberian Village. The Shinsengumi were stopping by in the efforts to calculate the damage of both Edo and Tokyo. Valentino was leaning against Hijikata's car as the Vice Chief looked solemnly at the village. "You know, I'm glad you guys got your village restored. I know a lot of samurai that helped fight in the Great Solid Wars, as they're called now." Hijikata said, Valentino smiled, "Well, yous samurai have helped our people immensely. We even owe some of ya our lives." Valentino said. "Don't worry about your sister Valentino, I think alone time will do her best right now. I've never had an actual sister, but I've grown up around someone I'd consider one...maybe even closer." Hijikata sighed. "Just, make sure to knock on her door every once and awhile and ask how she's doing." Hijikata smiled at Valentino and got back in his car. He leaned out the window, "And if you guys are ever in any trouble, just let us know." Valentino nodded as Hijikata drove off. "Jus check up on her sometimes huh? That's too easy for a nosy fratello like myself." TBC
