Wealth, fame, power. Gold Roger the king of the pirates obtained this and everything else the world had to offer. And his dying words drove countless souls to the seas."You want my treasure? You can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place. Now you just have to find it!"With his final words he set off the Great Pirate Era. But right now you're more concerned about other words ringing in your ears."Feel the power of the Marines!"The pair of giant metallic fists come down on you and hammer the words into your head. Again and again they are brought down upon you until you find your body thoroughly embedded in the dirt."How's that you punk?! This is what the future tastes like! Soon enough every man and woman in service of the World Government will have one of these bad boys! Doesn't matter if it's a Yonko or the freshest rookie, our Metal Marines will rid the world of scum like you and finally there will be PEACE!"He claps his robot hands together and hammers you down one finally time, splitting the earth in quite a sizable area in the process. You didn't think climbing out of a hole would take genuine effort but here you are. Being punched, squeezed and stepped on by a huge robot hurts. You don't even get to dust yourself off before the giant mech reaches for the building sized sword on its back and swings down at you. With a quick draw you raise Argent and clash with the mecha using both hands. The deadlock lasts a couple seconds before you manage to push the sword to the side and jump out of the way. In the resulting confusion as the machine cleaves the ground in twain you disappear, leaving the giant metal marine confused."ARGH! Where did that rat bastard go?""He's on your back commodore!"One of the marines shouts and the head honcho immediately tries to seize you. Unfortunately for him his suit of armor has a slight design flaw and can't reach the center of its own back. Clinging onto him in bat form like an itch that you can't scratch you wait to see what they'll do about it. The commodores solution to the You Problem is to throw himself backwards and try to crush you with his immense weight. Thankfully you're slippery enough to jump off him and morph into the Razielim before he could pancake you. Taking to the skies you look down at the large crowd as you pull out a den den mushi from your pocket.
"Purupurupurupuru-gacha. OY! About bloody time you called! You better give me a good freakin' reason for the delay!"Christie Weaver starts shouting on the other end."Sorry. Didn't want to start trouble until now. But I do now. Knock yourself out.""Ugh finally!"Click.You give the marines one more look as you hold the transponder snail in your hand. One giant mech, a whole bunch of grunts with weird weapons and a whole bunch of artillery surrounding the island. The Dauntless is still on standby at the bottom of the sea floor. You could order them to come up and things would escalate quite a lot. Or you could keep them in reserve and sort things out with only Jaws as backup.>Tell the crew to stand by (mitigate the chaos)>Order the Dauntless to surface (escalate the violence)>Ignore the metal chucklefucks for now and look for the doctor. You got questions for him>Other?

Deciding not to put your snail away you dial another number and wait a few seconds for the others to pick up."Hello. Silver Pirates Pizzeria. I'm Gu. May I take your order?""There is an island of marines here. I don't want it to be. Also a house full of kids. Leave them be.""The house special, no pickles. Got it. It will be ready in thirty minutes.""Take your time. Also, if you see a scrawny guy with glasses running, don't let him get away.""Aye aye."Click."Now then-WHOA!"You try to pocket your snail and look down at the marines but almost end up dropping the mushi because ALL those dozens of marine grunts you saw down on the ground are approaching your position quite rapidly. In the sky. When they reach your elevation they attempt to gore you with the bayonets affixed to their rifles and almost mangle your wings. As they swarm the sky you get a good look at them and see that they aren't using Geppo as you thought. Instead it's the backpack like contraptions on their backs that shoot air out of themselves and let them fly as human rockets. Holding your side where one of them managed to cut your skin you let out a chuckle."Heh. That's neat."They put on masks and aim their guns at you which spew a noxious cloud that makes your eyes water and your throat and nose burn. As you start choking others also unload volleys at you. Not worrying too much about it you ignore them and focus on the burny stuff invading your nose since bullets are not dangerous. Except these are not the typical balls that you are used to. They have a point to them and appear to fly more straight than the typical ammunition that can go wherever it pleases after leaving the barrel. You're quite surprised when the bullets pierce your body and actually manage to hurt you. They even turn your beautiful wings into swiss cheese, making you fall quite fast.Landing quite hard on your back you brace as you see the grunts flying towards you, ready to impale you with their bayonets. About five hit your torso but thanks to the armament you applied at the last moment they don't do much damage. Instead the blades flatten on impact and reform as they pull them back."CLEAR!"One of them shouts and they jump off of you at once."Light him up!"A few others gather around wielding different weapons and aim at you. They then douse you with jets of scalding steam.
>>5113198>trying to fight silver with heat
Feeling damp, hot and hurty you get back up on your legs and squeeze some water out of your clothes."Damn it! I already bathed this week!""How did his flesh not melt off?""Who cares? If heat doesn't work we try the other thing!"They adjust a valve on their packs and douse you with liquid again. Except this time it's cold. As soon as the stuff hits your skin it flash freezes and in a second you find yourself encased in a sheet of ice. The cold is much harsher on you and the fact that you were already wet from their previous attack didn't help. Transforming into your hybrid form lets you break out of the ice and you quickly raise your body heat to compensate but the cold still manages to immobilize you as you can't do much but rub your skin with chattering teeth."That's right! Stay there you little shit!"The commodore swings his building sized sword down on you and unfortunately you aren't fast enough to draw Argent. In a desperate move you cross your wings over your head and use your haki to block his attack. The ground under your feet cracks and you feel his sword bite into the tattered folds of skin between your fingers despite the enhancement. As you're holding him off however the chaff swarm you from all sides and aim some more big weapons at you. The things that appear to be small cannons fire great harpoons of wapometal at your torso and manage to puncture your body.Finally you give up and collapse under the pressure as the commodores sword smashes you in the ground."Don't let him breathe men! I want this little fuck turned into a stain! I don't care if we have to present his guts to HQ!""K-Kekeke. Alright! Your toys are pretty good!"You get back up with shaky legs and blow the blood out of your nose."Now let's see if they can keep up with our!""Our?"Suddenly a great circular saw cuts through swaths of marines before Jaws pulls back Umibozu and stops spinning it around."WHAT?!"As the commodore shouts explosions are heard from the other side of the island as the Dauntless no doubt just blasted the marine ship to smithereens. Meanwhile Murray swipes his hand along the edge of his anchor, encasing it in a thick sheet of water."I will be your opponent! You scum are not worthy of fighting our captain!""Hmph. MEN! Turn that animal into sashimi quick and focus on Cavalier! I'll keep him busy!"Turning back into your human form you draw Argent with Parley and cross them in front of you."Can you?">Time to see whose toys are better>Show him why it's not smart to mess with a bat>Unleash your haki and turn him into a paste>Other?

"Heh. You think just because your attack dog showed up you suddenly have a chance? He'll be dead soon enough. Until then I have you all for myself! PACIFISTA!"The cyborg that's been on standby springs to life as its eyes glow red. It disappears and moves behind you with a technique like Soru. It starts swiping with his hand whilst opening its mouth to blast you with god only knows what. You smirk."That's dirty."Swinging Parley over your shoulder you nonchalantly fire it and blasting the machine in the face. The lower jaw of the pacifista disappears and the construct starts falling on its back. But before it could hit the ground you jump up with a twirl and bite down on the blade of your sword."Silver Style! Roaring Ripper!"With a single motion you draw the sword from your mouth and slice downward and bifurcate the machine in a gnarly manner. It's not a clean cut, far from it. As the steel guts of pour out of the metal chassis sparks fly everywhere from it and the Pacifista explodes a few seconds after. Looking away from the explosion you start reloading your rifle and speak to the commodore."What now?""He cut through the Wapometal?"It's not at all surprising. They've been throwing those stupid pacifista at you for a while now, not to mention all the other stuff they built from it. If you didn't know the extent of the Governments arrogance you'd have a hard time believing someone could be stupid enough to think this trick would work forever."You gonna stop gawking soon or you can't fight without backup?""I'm not going to take backtalk from a half-dead, good for nothing, shitty pirate! DIE! Metal Marine: FULL STEAM!"You see the heat building up in the mech as it raises its sword and begins to spew hot steam from its back. The commodore swings his giant sword down at you, intending to do the same thing to you what you did to his wind-up toy. Knowing that you can't take him on in a direct clash from that previous clash you raise Parley and start to focus. The world around you slowly starts to blur into nothingness as you focus on the mechs sword and you pull the trigger. As the bullet perfectly hits the edge of his sword you see a crack forming on the full width of the blade before the building sized weapon snaps in half and the one wielding it stumbles."WHAAAAT?!"Grinning you jump where the great blade used to be and start running up the spine of the sword and then the robots arm. When you reach his shoulder you flex your muscles and in a rare moment let your weapon completely loose."ARGENT! PLAYTIME!"With the full momentum of your whole body behind it you do a spinning downward slash that sends out a flying attack. The slicing wind cuts straight through the arm of the robot, severing it and creating a crevice in the ground that matches the commodores in size."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!"The marine roars as the severed arm of his suit falls down the hole you made.
Oil and steam spew from the wound. But because he was not directly harmed the commodore is not clutching the wound that you inflicted on his mech. However he IS backing away."H-How?!"You feel Argent and Parley urging you to continue the assault so you have to reel them back in."Whoa easy! Easy!"Looking to the side you see Jaws mopping the floor with the lower ranking marines. Literally. He's dragging them face first along the ground and smearing their blood everywhere. And judging by the screams carried by the wind you'd say the same is happening on the other end of the island."Well well well. It looks like you can't unweenie someone with shiny stuff! Better keep the good tools for the strong boys! Now will you come out of there and fight like a man or do I have to crack your shell to get to the juicy meat like a crab?""EEP!""I'm sorry Marauder, you know I didn't mean it like that!"The commodore weighs his options for a few moments before looking at his men who aren't doing much better. A bunch of them are currently firing chained harpoons at Murray who simply grabs them out of the air and starts swinging the marines around with them."Damn it! I need to report this to HQ! We must initiate a Buster Call on the island! We can't allow these scum to steal the metal! COVER ME MEN! Your sacrifice won't be forgotten!"He turns tail and starts running away with his huge robot and you chase after him."Oh no you don't!"But you stop in your path when a terrible feeling overcomes you and makes you stop."Damn that Newson! The higher ups will have his hide for selling us this shit!"The commodore shouts into his loudspeaker mushi as he keeps running. But his sprint is quickly cut short as he bumps into a wall. In the middle of the forest."Whatthe-"Suddenly the black wall he tackled grasps him with two hands and its fingers dig into the chassis of his robot."Wrong."A new voice speaks up, one much deeper and louder than the commodores that makes your guts tremble. The "thing" before you that's the size of an honest to god giant rips the commodores mech in half with the slightest bit of effort, leaving the marine exposed as he starts falling and screaming. The marine officer hits the ground and looks up at the monolith blocking out the sun with an indescribable dread in his eyes."You may come. But you'll find collecting more trouble than it's worth. Softheaded fools.""N-NEWSON?! You bastard! What is this?""Come now. Did you really think I'd give you my best work when you dogs are satisfied by mere scraps?"You walk up closer to the black colossus and let out a whistle."Nice suit.""Thank you. I wanted to show you as thanks. I owe you that much. It's thanks to you that I could complete my magnum opus. I suppose I owe you an explanation. Or would you rather we start killing each other?">What's going on?>Works for me! (Crack your knuckles)>Other?
>>5113381>Works for me! (Crack your knuckles)lmao
>>5113381>>What's going on?Sure, get it out of the way.
>>5113381>>What's going on?
>>5113381>>What's going on?He really doesn't seem fond of the marines, which is a good.
>>5113381>>What's going on?well an explanation would be nice, but do we have to kill each other afterwards? not that I mind, but you have seemed cool until now, so unless you tell me your robot is powered by the life-force of the kids you could still come work for me.
Let's see what the nutty professor got cooked up>writing
"Newson you dirty rat! You think you can get away with screwing us like that? You don't mess with the government! The government messes with you! When word gets out of this there won't be a place in the world where you can hide!""Hmmmm?"Looking down at the commodore Newson uses his robot to step on the marines legs, crushing the lower half of his body under the massive weight of the machine."Be quiet. The important people are talking."As the commodore howls and shrieks in pain you look at the big robot and speak."Aren't you on the same side?""Hmph. Hardly. You wouldn't believe how much these people infuriated me. If it wasn't so easy deceiving them I wouldn't have bothered. But this way they were tolerable enough and useful.""W-What the hell are you talking about?!"The commodore asks."I almost pity him. Almost. He truly thinks he earned the things he has. This island, this whole place was nothing more than a small test site for wapometal before I came, without any results to show. All these weapons, his rank, his prestige, all of his achievements are mine. If I didn't kill Professor Newson and took his place months ago this fool would be nowhere.""W-WHAT?!""See? He doesn't even realize that I erased his memories. But even if he did I doubt this opportunist filth would've cared. Not if I kept producing those trinkets he loved so much. Even if they were made by a pirate."He chuckled."But finally after all this time I can finally drop the act. Thanks to you and that incredible arm of yours I figured out the solution for my problem and completed my life's work! I can finally turn my attention seawards and fulfill my dream! I will track down those fools that dared to ridicule me and my genius! I'll show them! I'll show them all! I'll seal that gaseous bastard, the fat pig, the weak minded fool and of course that BASTARD Vegapunk! I'll crush their creations before their very eyes before squeezing the life out of them just like this!"The great hand of the robot moves and it flings something in your direction. It's a Pacifista rolled up into a ball like a crumpled piece of paper."They dared to ridicule my research! Called it superstitious nonsense! They'll see just how real it is when I tear their guts out!""Whew. Someone is mad.""Mad? MAD? No... I most assuredly am not. They made sure of that! Hahaha! HAHAHHAHA! But it doesn't matter anymore thanks to you! My research is complete! Now that my creation can move I can get on with things! But before I do I want to show you my appreciation.""That's nice."You swing Argent over your shoulder."But first, want to tell me why is your big robot making me sick to my stomach?!"
>>5113504Oh damn, they vaxx'd this nigga with SADI just hope his robot doesn't run on the souls of children like i'm expecting, because i don't want to fight it
>>5113421he expirement with child and erase they memory he will dead
>>5113527You are high on copium, we are not gonna recruit him.
"Hmmmm? Could it be- Ah. You can feel it, can't you? I should've expected."The robot crosses its arms as you take a better look at it. The voice, or rather voices coming from this thing form the most horrifying chorus you've ever heard."Well what do you think this is? What is the one, supreme thing that can make the byproduct of an accursed fruit look like a joke? You know the answer. Black Metal. An alloy permanently infused with the will of a person. Through trial and error I managed to unlock the secrets of Haki to the point that I can mass produce it. But alas there is only so much one person can make. So I had to build this, my Black Testament out of the metal produced by hundreds of people!""Hey... Newson. Or whoever you are. Did you build that out of the kids?""Why do you think they all had bodyparts missing? But yes. Them and the wounded marines. But I only ever killed the marines. I would never do such a horrible thing to my children. I do care about them, I genuinely do. But I don't do charity. In exchange for a little piece of their body I give them a loving home and all the care they need. It's the reason why I use amnesiacs on them so frequently. I don't want them to grow up with all those bad memories.""You big-""Now now, before you say another word, do not forget something. You are also a pirate. These children lost their loved ones because of people like you and these marine scum. How many marines did you kill exactly? You got quite a bodycount as far as I'm aware. It's quite possible a few of them are here specifically because of you. I took from them, yes. But for what little I ask I gave them more than anyone ever did, short of their own parents. So if anyone can judge me, you're not one of them."The robot lets out a deep laugh."So. What will it be Cavalier? I'm eager to show you the power your arm spawned. The power to subjugate the will in an object! The only question is how do you wish to experience it? Shall I destroy these pests? Or perhaps you wish to feel my strength for yourself?">Get out of my sight!>You won't get away with this!>Other?
>>5113540>>You won't get away with this!Don't tell me what I can't do. I'm gonna be judge, jury and executioner.
>>5113540>"Jaws, we're leaving.">Grab the buster call and use it>Tell the crew to grab the kids and get ready to go
>>5113540Damnit Spooks, this is a difficult one. But honestly, letting a crazy giant evil mech monster loose on the Government just sounds like proper fun. >>5113552This isn't a good idea mate, the kids wanna be marines for honestly good reasons... Kidnapping them and forcing them to be pirates isn't what we do. >Get out of my sight! But before you, what you gonna do about the kids?Cause if he's just gonna abandon them, then we know it was all bullshit and we should get the crew together to murderize
>>You won't get away with this!kill him! he hurt the child's!
>>5113540>>5113566+1he does make some points, but on the other hand he is taking away the freedom to choose cool cyborg limbs of the kids who trust him. and yes we do kill but only as a response not cold blooded murder of supposed allies. Maybe we should beat him up unless he apologises to the kids, and for being a wienie who stabs people in the back.
So this took a while and it's a bit confusing (it's late here gimme a break)But it seems like you are willing to let him go IF he'll take care of the kidsIs that correct?In that case we'll continue with that next session. I don't know when that'll be. Probably next Tuesday or Wednesday.Hope to see you there. Have a pleasant day!
>>5113566We don't have to kidnap them, just leave them someplace where they don't get brainwashed and harvested. Really surprising you guys let this one go when we kill for way less. He's a really good actor, fooling the players even after dropping the act.
>>5113594i want to kill him...but...Maybe we should beat him up and make he apologises with the childs for use their soul to make this abomination to the kids and what they have the freedom to choose cool cyborg limbs but a cost of a part of him soul's.
>>5113606The kids like him. That is the most important thing here, fucking them over again would be cruel... And he could have done all kinds of hilariously cruel shit and made everyone forget all about it. And he killed marines, so the main source of evil magiks power came from killing them, and who cares about dead marines dying?And what are we gonna do, drag them away against their will (kidnapping), sail into Marineford and dump a bunch of cripples in their laps?>>5113594Late here as well. I just wanna lay a clever, sneaky, trap: be all like "What about the kids you care about so much" and if he goes "Oh yes, I have a retirement plan for them on this and that island with money and their own milking cows" then yea, he did care about them and I have no compunction about letting him rampage. Cause that shits gonna be funny as hell. If he doesn't, well I can see Silver accepting *a* family being a lot better then *no* family, but uncaring abusive is dead meat.
>>5113620They like him because he brainwashed them, that's not a fucking argument. We have a fuckton of islands we can leave them in without crazy assholes taking advantage of them. It doesn't matter if they like being here, they are kids.
Didn't realize a new thread was up fuck, was fun reading through the session anyways can't wait for the next one.
>>5113594Sure, Though I still wanna buster call the island for the hell of it.Also, Thanks twitter for only just now telling me about this thread.
>letting the bondrewd looking nigger even caesar, queen, and judge thinks is mad run around drugging orphanages with amnesiacs every time they get traumatized from his amputations and experiments just because he says marine stupid pirate cool>enough amputations and human experiments to make a giant robot produced by hundreds of peopleuh, yeah, nice no slavery protagonist guys
So. Vampire happened today. No Social Link update for now. But I'll get started on it. However you may have to do a bit of proofreading as I most definitely will forget to include some stuff. It's been a while.>>5114123I'm kinda with you on this one chief. Silver was always this, not morally ambiguous more like morally insane individual. But this one kinda makes him tip over to actual villain territory
>>5113540>>You won't get away with this!
>>5114236>Vampire happened todayAs in you played one of the TTRPG's? Or your fighting Vampires in your Europoor world?
>>5114236Isn't slavery also allowed in Outer Heaven?
>>5114331Technically yes but It’s more of a “fuck around and find out” thing. Since nothing is stopping anyone from killing the slavers or the slaves from escaping.
>>5114308Yes>>5114331It is. As in "Bring your slaves here, see what happens"You are allowed to bring slaves. But nothing guarantees that Silver won't kill you on the spot. Which he does. Frequently.
>>5114331Yeah but so is gutting said slaver and fucking him to death with a butcher's knife.
>>5113540>You won't get away with this!Forgot to vote.Also disregarding the morality of it I'm not cool letting a dude who'd cut apart hundreds of people to make some kind of pseudo philosopher stone suit live. That's the kind of shit that comes back to bite you in the ass in the most fucked up of ways.
>>5114370>YesUnderstand, Remember. Death to Tremere.
>>5113540>>You won't get away with this!If he had just been up front with the kids that he was building a mecha out of them this would all have been ok
>>5113588>>5113540>You won't get away with this!after further consideration I've changed my mind
>>5113540>You won't get away with this!
>Google Docs wants me to correct Gold Roger to Gol D RogerkekAAANYWAY!Listen up fuckers! Pastes are done. I worked quite a lot. Probably missed something. Okay, I definitely did. But I updated MOST things. Funnily enough Silver got the least amount of attention. Also, did you know out of the 21 pages in the social links the crew takes up 13?If you find something I fucked up or missed, please start shouting at me. I'll work them out tomorrow. Me tired>Social Linkshttps://docs.google.com/document/d/10rL8USEZOSb4AYaJHv5BOhS7oDPqimv35y32CBsI3L8/edit?usp=sharing>Character Sheethttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1W48enlxynezhIQni0g97RT-A8z9HfS90NfCkbzTJiAA/edit?usp=sharingAlso also, if you can find me pictures of a bug-like human in a maid outfit or something similar I'd appreciate it.

>>5116110Will this do?
>>5116607There's also this one if you feel the other one's too questionable.
I decided that I'll be running tomorrow. Already have the first post written. May not write too much later however. Monster Hunter is coming out tomorrow>>5116175Yes. Because people keep confusing him for SilverSo I gave him Silvers old bountyAlso, the only panties in Outer Heaven are Wills. If you're a woman and stay there for any length of time there is a 100% chance he'll pilfer them. Even if they are on you>>5116615>>5116607Eh. Not good but thanks for the effort. I'll just use the one that I found. That seems to be good enough for now.The problem is that she is not a bug girl. Just a fucked up human that has bug like features
>>5117357Has... has nobody explained to the boy that pussy is better than panties?does he have a pile of pirate panties somewhere? god, it must stink.
>>5117362Well you can't keep the puss puss in your closet. And if you do then hoo boy that'll leave a lot of stains and the stench of death.
>>5117357I've been picturing her as a taller, flat and four armed version of sally from Nightmare before Christmas. should be plenty of art if one is willing to dig for it.
>>5117380Yeah that's not bad>>5117370He can actually. If he asked Lyda very nicely. She may be able to give him a... very authentic one>>5117362Boy is still like 14 at most. He only knows that it's naughty and that makes it fun
>>5117357Ah, I get it now.Also hows this for your bug girl maid needs?
>>5117426Ooooh perfect! And Cordie should have plenty of art of her!
>>5117386>He can actually. If he asked Lyda very nicely. She may be able to give him a... very authentic one

He took me up to the surface where he built a garden to show me. He made a park so the children who want to visit Sabaody can fulfill their dreams. I know he’s rude, loud, smelly and makes me cry a lot. But… he has so much love to give. And there is no place I’d rather be than by his side. Just to feel the warmth of his heart!”
>>5117813I mean, it's not every day a guy comes from nowhere, hunts down the asshole that kept you trapped in a tower for 10 years after helping you see your mother's grave for the first time in said decade, kicks his ass so hard that only your word kept him alive, saves your kingdom from an insurrection, and then builds you a fucking garden on the sea just so you can feel grass.And does all this shit just because he thinks your vibe is nice and you deserve nice shit for said vibe.
You start clapping."Kek! Using a big robot to fist the government and those that wronged you? Yes! I approve!""I'm glad you understand. I simply can not put into words how much I chafed under the yoke of these troglodytes. But all that suffering has born fruit at last. And now it's time to harvest. The return of the Pirate Professor Jester D. Bones is at hand!""Yes but before that I have a ques-""Oh. Hold that thought please."The large machine turns its torso backwards as the commodore underneath it starts shooting."What are you waiting for you idiots? Shoot him down!"To everyones surprise the humongous machine disappears and reappears behind a row of soldiers. With a casual swat he sends them flying through the trees and all kinds of terrain until they reach about the edge of the island. Those that were not obliterated train their rifles on the robot and open fire. Naturally the bullets bounce off its chassis and the various chemicals and steam they douse it with have no effect. They use their jetpacks to get to the skies and hopefully find an opening. But all they did by flying is put themselves right in the path of the mechs attack.It looked like Bones threw an uppercut but his attack stopped when his forearm was perpendicular with his torso. A hatch on the arm popped open and a pair of cannons that could put a battleships to shame sprung forth."Iron Impact."A bright flash bursts forth from the arm mounted weapons, blinding you and everyone before deafening half the island with the sound of an explosion. When your senses come back you see the machine standing there the same it did and a great black line going from it till the edge of the land. No trace of the marines he hit remains. The eye slit of the mechanical monster flash red before it moves back to the commodore and steps on him with a speed that has no business being wielded by something that big. The marine commanders screams are drowned out by the booming voice of the robot."This is the problem with you marines. You rely on slag produced by devil fruit users and artificial humans welded together by talentless hacks. You grasp at every straw you can while ignoring the one thing that actually matters. Will. Those with the superior will triumph. It's that simple. And it takes great will to go against the world. It doesn't matter how many numbers you have. You can't fight a tide with spoons. It's time for you to go extinct and for those to inherit the world who have the will to take it!"Raising its leg the mech finally flattens the commodore fully, ending his screaming."I'm sorry about that Cavalier. Now you have my full attention."Your shoulders drop as you look up at him feeling dejected."I was just going to ask what will happen to the kids. But I guess now I know."
You muttered that second part so Bones didn't quite catch that."Well of course they are coming with me. What kind of a parent would I be if I just left them here? I'll take good care of them and they'll help me with my work. Simple as."A sunset flashes before your eyes with a small raft leaving for the horizon and a person waving from it. You scoff and after a quickdraw fire Parley at the robot. Despite being quite pissed you're still lucid enough to realize he did not budge an inch. And that's bad."Sigh. Why did you have to do that?"The giant walking weapon takes a swing at you and you try jumping backwards to mitigate the damage. It does nothing and you break through the sound barrier as you smash through several trees. Sprouting wings and using them to stop you fly above the machine and start reloading."Pant. Pant. Because I'm not gonna let you keep using them like that!""Like that? Like how?""For haki!"He pauses."How did you figure it out so quickly?""A weenie like you couldn't use observation. And I hear their voices coming from your stupid machine!""Oh. Ooooh. That is what's upsetting you? I assure you they feel no discomfort. I have them in a dreamless sleep, connected together so their meager observations are combined to produce a clear image. It's a bit scary sure, but nothing worse than a nightmare. Really it's nothing compared to what they went through already.""What?""Come now. Do you really think it's that easy to make black metal? If it was everyone would be running around with black blades. Infusion on such a level is quite difficult even for a high level user. I found pain to be the most effective method. To focus as much pain as possible into a single bodypart and give them just a bit of stimulation to help start the process. They will reflexively harden the area to try and protect themselves with all their might. All that's left is the removal of the infused limb and molding it into shape. It's quite unfortunate that the process can only be done once per subject as they loose the ability to use armament for the rest of their lives."You form a fist and jump up."Silver Style! BAT-"BONKThe punch bounces off of him and now your knuckles are bleeding."Sigh. Unfortunate."A giant fist comes down and punches you into the dirt."You weren't listening. If you don't have the will to do what must be done you'll never achieve your goals! It's that simple.""SILVER!"Murray rushes up to you."Are you alright?""Yeah. I am. And yeah, you're right!"Looking up at the humongous monster you take out a round, black sphere from your pocket. Placing it between your teeth you crunch down on it with a single bite."Second Wind?""Jaws-"You speak up as your eyes turn red after the blood vessels in it pop."Call everyone. He's going down.""What about the marines?">Tell them to wrap it up. We don't need distractions>Ignore them. We got bigger fish to fry>Other?
>>5118409>Ignore them. We got bigger fish to fryYay teamup!
>>5118412>Ignore them. We got bigger fish to fryGoddamn, we can't even hurt this guy without using armament, which silver sucks at...And he's so strong and fast that the rest of the crew would probably die fighting him.If we could restrict his movement somehow, maybe fill his joints with hagetaka's glass and wrap him up in spider silk?Then maybe we could throw him in the ocean and let him drown/suffocate, then recover the robot.
>>5118412>Ignore them. We got bigger fish to fryOh boy it's time for blood!
>>5118424>Goddamn, we can't even hurt this guy without using armament, which silver sucks at...Buster or Argent using sound based fuckery as a vibrospike/blade might do the trick. The problem is getting close enough to the fucker to make the attempt.

"I don't care. We got bigger fish to fry!""Roger. MARCI! HAGETAKA! Ignore the marines and bring the Dauntless over here! We got a canned tuna and need your help opening it up!""What do you mean canned- Oh. Oh yeah we see it. Hold onto your butts we're coming! Here! A little present."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkRUVdtOb9sAs Murrays snail cuts off you hear a whistling sound before the robots back explodes as the cannonballs hit it. As you suspected the monstrum moved from the impact. Bones quickly turns to look at the source of the attack and scoffs."My oh my. What a beauty! I wonder how stable it is."You see him taking aim as he extends an arm and prepares to flick his middle finger at the Dauntless. Not about to let him do as he pleases you jump in the path of his attack just as he fires it off."Finger Destruction Blast!"The compressed burst of air hits you square in the chest and sends you flying. After you fall back first on the ground and roll at least ten times you manage to get up and taunt him."Not impressed! I can do that too!"But as you take a good look at yourself you see that your shirt is in tatters. Angrily you remove your coat before ripping the tattered fabric off your chest."You know Cavalier I really thought you'd understand my position. But I guess we are just incompatible. Not to worry. As a show of my gratitude I'll leave you alive this time. But if possible I'd like it if you didn't get in my way again. Now preparer to-"As he throws a fist in your direction the machines momentum stops."What?""Whoah! I caught a big 'un!"Jaws holds back the arm of the mecha with Umibozus chain wrapped around it one time."Annoying little gnat!"With a mighty pull Bones overpowers Jaws and pulls him away from the ground. A bit shocked by this Murray tries to swing around with his chain like Tarzan and punches the machine in the chest as he comes around."Fish-man Karate: Kokushio!"The impact sounds like a hammer striking an iron ingot but louder. Murray reels as the blood leaves his arm and goes numb."F-FUCK!""SILVER STYLE! DRAGON MAW!"You follow up Murray with a full powered swing from Argent as the machine reaches for Murray with its free arm. You hit it in the shoulder and see sparks flying off everywhere but you're not sure it's from the armor. Granted you didn't use armament on that but it still should've done something. But no. The loudspeakers blare once more."Please do not relent. I'm getting excellent data from this. Resist, fight. Let me know where I may need to improve things."As Jaws releases his anchor from the robot you turn into a small bat to fly away from the grasping hand that was about to crush you. Meeting up on the ground you exchange a worried look with the fish-man."This is stupid!""Agreed. But we shouldn't stop. There is nothing that doesn't have a weak point!""Try me."The colossal warmachine disappears and reappears in front of you, ready to smash the ground.
You turn into a hybrid and airlift Jaws out of there just before the fist smashes in the ground and causes an earthquake and flattens the entire forest around you, as if a city destroying bomb just went off. He's about to take a swing at you when for the first time you see it being moved against its will. Specifically when the Dauntless in full battle mode charges in and decks it in the head. Still it doesn't look like it did any damage but at least it CAN be affected if you just hit it hard enough. It gets back up quickly and rushes your ship. The two behemoths grab each others hand and begin a tug of war that threatens to break the island itself with faults appearing between them.As Hagetaka and Marcella are busy controlling the Dauntless the others disembark from it with Gu jumping off while Ann and Will, with Lyda on his back run up one of its arms. Spider spins a web along its right arm while Will jumps around the place, shooting explosive bolts at every conceivable part of it with Lyda restocking his quiver whenever he runs out of bolts. At the same time Gu touches down and does a quick kata as the black markings appear on his body."Hasshoken: Mukade Fugu!"With a double palm thrust he hits the ankle of the machine and unbalances it. Meanwhile Ann pulls on her strings and pulls back one of its arms so it can't brace properly. Winning the clinch with a little help the Dauntless throws the machine to the ground. And as a final nail in the coffin Greki jumps off the bridge and brings his hammer down with all his might."FAFNIR!"He hits Bones right on the head but everyone quickly realizes that the machine is still moving, in fact you don't see even a dent on it so everyone backs off a bit."By me mothers beard! What is that thing made out of?!""Bodyparts Tiny. Bodyparts strengthened by armament.""By the Sun... What abomination! I hate to say it but... I don't think we have a chance at beating it unless we manage to muster haki even stronger than it!""Not quite!"Will stops jumping around in the air and lands beside you."I hit every part on its body looking for a weakpoint and found something.""Well? What is it William?""It's the eyes Murray! It has den den mushi in the slit where its eye should be! They are sitting behind some glass. It's tough as nails but can't be harder than armament, right?""O-Or maybe we're approaching this the wrong way. If physical attacks don't work we should try something else. T-The person controlling it is inside no? Can't we attack him?""Well whatever we do we should do it quick! It's getting up!">Alright! Lets take the eyes out!>If he has cameras for eyes the Bones is elsewhere. Everyone, hit the chest!>Let's see how black metal handles heat!>Other?
>>5118572>This robot is powered by haki... but it's the haki of mere children. Maybe conquerors can knock the robot itself unconscious?
>>5118572He has A.O.E. so making him blind doesn't do much.He's an arrogant son of a bitch but even he isnt slow enough to forget that machines heat up so he probably has some kind of coolant system set up.As for the chest idea that has merit but at the same time it's basically going "hit harder" and hoping we can actually damage this fucker through his buffs.One thing I got to ask though, how is he breathing in the suit? Because if it's a sealed system then all we have to do is keep beating the shit out of him till he runs out of air. If not then we can just poison the fucker.
>>5118582...That's insane/stupid enough to work. It's a long shot, but then again Silver's used to long shots.Seconding this madness.
>>5118572We could try to use vibrations to knock the insides around if they can penetrate the outer shell. Could fuck him up majorly like the brain getting rattled inside the skull
>>5118572>Alright! Lets take the eyes out!>>5118590>>5118582I don't think Haki affects robots, or the Pascifista wouldn't be worth shit outside of Paradise and the Blues. Altho a thought strikes me.Lyda can't swap the bodyparts of *people* without their consent... Is a robot people? Because we might be able to fabricate a weakness considering how, I presume, the Dauntless' ballast is made of gold coins by now.
>>5118594That could be a good idea too.Rather than try to damage the robot, just grab the motherfucker and shake it hasshoken style until the doc inside turns into a meat smoothie
>>5118594I mean the robot is made of people, but I'm pretty sure none of them are happy with the current arrangement.
>>5118572>Alright! Lets take the eyes out!
>>5118582I like this idea>>5118594But this garnered more attentionWhilst Lyda COULD under normal circumstances just replace a chunk of the mech with a rock Armament is show to be capable of resisting DF fuckery like that if it's strong enough.But the idea of going for the eyes and shaking the fuck out of the doc inside are both ok>writingNow let's see if it works3d10+4 best of 3, dc 18 crit 23

"If those snails are his eyes then we just have to take them out!""But isn't it pointless? You saw how he moves! That's clearly observation haki. Blinding him will do next to nothing!""Leave that to me."Looking at the machine you close your eyes and start to listen. It's quite hard making out anything when that metal mountain sounds like over a hundred people screaming at once but you manage to make out the voices of the children that Bones has tied up in there. They are afraid even in their strange sleep. For they see and feel everything that's happening to them."Stop!""W-What just happened? My children! What's wrong?""I just knocked out the kids he has hooked up in there! Go!""YOU! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY KIDS?!"Bones raises the mechs arms the same way he did before and aims at the Dauntless."IRON IMPACT!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9feq908XxTMThe blast shoots off one of the glass arms of your ship which visibly taxes Hook and Angel. As the two of them try to regain control over the ship Bones starts marching towards them and smacks Greki out of his way. Spider starts jumping between his legs, tying them together with her threads. Unfortunately it does little to slow him down so Hagetaka has to jump in to help."Keep it together navigator!""YOU BITCH! DON'T LEAVE ME ALONE! AAAAAAAAAARGH! SHIT! I... CAN'T!"Your huntress dives towards the ground and begins crystallizing her body."Fallen Paradise!"Her glass body shatters against the ground and innumerable tree like pillars sprout from the ground to stand between Bones and the Dauntless. He naturally breaks through them but as the webbing between his legs grows thicker and as more and more pillars erupt he slows down drastically. Gu and Murray then exchange a nod and they shout for Angel to lift them as well. A pillar raises the two until they are roughly at the level of the mechs chest."Fish-man Karate-""Hasshoken-""Umishindo!""Umishindo!"As both of them hit the chassis of the metal beast as hard as they could they felt their fists encountering resistance. But as they pressed on they felt the vibrations intensifying until their knuckles started to move and leave an imprint in the metal slab. With the sound of a bomb going off the Black Testament was pushed back and Bones let out a shocked grunt through the sound systems.Meanwhile Lyda is looking at Greki who fell on his ass when the mecha slapped him."Greki! Please toss me up! And get ready.""A'ight lass! Hope you know what you're doing."With a quick toss Lyda is high in the air. She needs to cover her face because the wind pressure is immense. As she starts to see the clouds getting closer she crosses her arms."Swap!"Greki takes her place and he mutters a little prayer to himself."O' Sun, don't let my heart give out before I can take my swing. Now-"He raises his hammer high."MJÖLNIR!"
Like a shooting star, bright and hot the giant descends from the heavens and puts all his force into that one swing and aims it at the head of the Black Testament. This time the entire upper body of the machine gets buried underground. Finally it took some real damage. Though the head is still somewhat intact the glass protecting the projector den den mushi shattered and with it the eyes of the beast were gone. But it was still not out of the fight.Still stuck in the ground it begins to laugh."You... You think you won? Hah! Haha! Just because I can't see you anymore doesn't mean I can't destroy you! Charging steam engines to maximum output now. I'll just wipe the entire island clean!""S-Shit..."Marcella scoffs as you land next to her."About god damn time! Get that bitch back here! I can't hold this shit together anymore!""Sorry. You have to hold out a bit longer."Raising your palm you slam it down on the deck of the Dauntless and begin infusion."Daunty!"The wooden boards groan at your command. The remaining glass arm gets coated with your armament and begins moving according to your intentions, just as if it was Parley, Argent or your own arm. Forming a fist you throw a punch at its chest."Silver Style: Dauntless Voice!"Striking the chassis you continue to channel as many vibrations as you can into it, just as Gu and Murray did. You feel the thick armor finally giving way to your will and bending but also feel your own stamina running out and the glass arm of the ship breaking down. With everything put into it you penetrate the hull of the Black Testament just as the last arm of the Dauntless shatters. But it appears you were just short of finishing things. Bones is sitting there exposed, concussed but still very much alive."Hah... AHAHAHHA! I WIN CAVALIER!"William then jumps into the hole and aims Rocket at Bones' forehead."N-"A few moments later Will climbs back out of the mech."Hey guys. I took him out and shot arrows into the machine until it turned off. But there are a bunch of kids in there. Wanna help?"
And that's it for today. I could've gone a bit more but I decided I'm not going to blueball you this time with what happens nextAnyway I hope you enjoyed yourselves. I'll see you guys maybe on Saturday. Depending on how burnt out I get by Monster HunterHave a good day
>>5118688Thanks for the run!
>>5118688sleep tight, that was a good fight
>>5118688Thanks for the bossfight run Spooks!It was cool seeing everyone working together and I do like how you use the fact that Silver is more of an Observation guy
>>5118665Damn, we need to youthen up greki with the same method we made Shelly!He's getting real old at this point, and i'm sure someone would be willing to trade a bit of their youth for some cash.A lot of people, actually. It's a really good deal if you're a manual laborer, especially since you don't actually have to work all your life to retire.They can retire in good health instead of having their body ruined by overwork.
>>5120425I mean that would be nice, assuming Greki wants to be young again rather just "just" making something that will carve his name into history. Tho I don't think "a bit" of youth would be anywhere near enough... We are talking about undoing a century or two here. There's also the hilarious fact that if it came out that Silver somehow had his own personal fountain of youth, well, now that'l cause one hell of a ruckus upstairs with the marines. And everyone else. #makeLinLinhotagain

With Hooks and Angels powers disengaged the Dauntless settles down on the ground as everyone takes a quick breather. Ann, Will and Omukade are relatively fine so they take this time to crawl into the wreck of the giant machine in order to get the children out of there. When they come out the kids are unconscious, bound and blinded by some cloth. They don't appear to be in pain but the red dots which indicate areas where they were stabbed by needles indicate that they aren't entirely fine. They are all shivering, tossing and turning in their sleep as if they are having night terrors. Spider quickly makes hammocks for all of them and starts rocking them back and forth to soothe the children."That's a problem."Gu observes."What are we going to do to them?""Not cooking them."You retort."I wasn't going to suggest that.""Yes you were. Anyway there are more of them at the house. But we'll figure that out when we get there or when these wake up. I gotta do something else first."Taking out your den den mushi you start making a call and wait for the other side to pick up."Purupurupurupuru-purupurupurupuru-purupurupurupuru-purupurupurupuru-gacha.""Hi. It's me again. Got into some trouble. I'm tired and I'm leaving. You should do that too.""...""Hello?""Your friends are not going anywhere."The voice of a man you've never heard before comes through the line."If you want to save them you have one hour to come here before they get taken to Impel Down.""Who is this?""Marines. Vice-admiral Smoker."That's one you don't know personally but heard about him extensively. He was the one who was at Alabasta when Goofy was there, and if your suspicion is right he was given the credit for beating Crocodile instead of the monkey. But even if that wasn't him he's still regarded as a very capable and dogged marine who won't stop at nothing when hunting pirates."So. What will it be? Will you come and fight like the rest or not?"He's trying to agitate you by implying you're a coward. Leaning away from the snail you look at Marcella."How long before we get to Dumb Drum Island or whatever?""With the state the ship is in? Way more than an hour even at top speed.""Well that's good. Didn't want to go anyway. It's their fault for getting caught.""I thought so. Go ahead and run. And if you try to come after the Wapometal again I'll make sure you meet the same fate.">"My name is Silver. You know where I hang out. Come and get me." (hang up)>"Oh yeah? I already got your last shipment. And good luck making weapons without your crazy pirate scientist.">Other?
>>5122032>tell this guy what was going on here, and that you'll be taking custody of these kids for a while
>>5122032>"Oh yeah? I already got your last shipment. And good luck making weapons without your crazy scientist."I say we save them, not for any grand reason but because we're petty and it'd be hilarious to hold it over Weaver's head.
>>5122032>"Oh yeah? I already got your last shipment. And good luck making weapons without your crazy pirate scientist."Finally here for a session for once instead of being asleep.
>>5122032>>5122037SupportHe might be a winie maybe not but this way there's a chance that somebody who's not a winie takes action.Also tell him where he can pickup the kids if he can convince us they'll be treated right and want to go I've somewhere not awesome
>>5122032>"Oh yeah? I already got your last shipment. And good luck making weapons without your crazy pirate scientist."
>>5122032>>5122037Yeah gotta agree with this guy
>>5122037So Smo-yan will be told about things. That's good.>>5122039Unfortunately Weaver is going to Megajail to get pegged. Unless you want to actually storm Impel Down that is>writing
>>5122077If she wanted to rate a rescue, she should have made an impression.
"Hmmmm. I don't think I will. I got all that I want already.""Hmmm?""And I also got the guy who made weapons out of these so I'm not too worried about you guys having more."There is silence on the other side."And you guys really should be more careful about who you work with. Some pirate killed and replaced your scientist. Then made a giant robot out of the arms and legs of the children and the wounded marines here. So yeah, pretty big oopsie.""What are you talking about?""Ugh. I don't get what you don't get about this. Just come to the island where Newson was. I wrecked it pretty damn well and you should probably clean it up.""Wait! Who is-"Click."Okay. I think he got the message.""Was it really wise calling the marines here?"Hagetaka asks."Eh. It'll be funny when they realize what happened. Now come on. We better get out of here with the loot. Also, bring the kids. I'll think about what to do with the injured marines on the way to the shore.""E-Erm... W-What will happen with this?""What's that Stitches? Oh... That."You look at the wreckage of the Black Testament that's still smoldering from when Bones tried to overload its steam-powered generator. Though the thing is wrecked thoroughly it still contains weapons and technology capable of unleashing massive destruction. Not to mention its black metal shell. A testament to Bones' madness indeed."Yeah. You kinda forget about the hard shell when you're after the squishy insides."Murray observes it from close up."Yeah this is big. Almost too big I'd say. Even if we dump it in the sea and get the fish-men to cooperate with us it's going to be hard tow this back to Outer Heaven. Not impossible but I don't think we can get both it and the Wapometal back home.""If I may voice my opinion-"Greki steps up."I admit I don't fancy that abominable wapometal junk one bit. But I hate this one even more. And like the idea of the marines getting their mitts on it even less.">We'll leave the wapometal at the bottom of the sea and brings this back with us. It'll make for a cool trophy if nothing else.>Hate it as much as you want. This is a strong weapon. We're taking it.>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying it>Other?
>>5122123>Hate it as much as you want. This is a strong weapon. We're taking it.Make it cursed warpmetal, The future is looking spooky
>>5122123>>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying it
>>5122123>>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying itWe killed Bones because he built an evil nightmare robort. I don't think we want to give the WG any more inspiration to repeat that... Because if they figured out you can weaponize people after torturing them the Dragons will all of the sudden get new toys by the literal trainload, a day. And if there's time to lugg off with some wapo after that, well then that's lovely.
>>5122123>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying it
>>5122131Oh, oh! speaking of. We need to find his labratory and wreck fucking that shit. We told that marine guy that we did a solid job after all.
>>5122123>>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying it>Other?But do go to the secret lab and take the plans for stuff that can be operated without being an evil cunt, destroy the rest.
>>5122123>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying itCan we get a sample of it first?
>>5122123>I agree with Greki. I'm destroying it And go and destroy the dudes notes
The choice is obvious, and you were thorough enough to destroy the notes too. Good job>writing
"I agree with Tiny. I don't like the idea of the government getting this. I'm destroying it. You guys, go and search for his lab. If you find something useful take it and burn the rest.""Hey hey, aren't you gonna help us? Your observation is the best out of all of us! And besides dipshit! How are you gonna destroy this thing when you couldn't even scratch it without us here!""No. I'm tired. Go look for it yourself. And I still have Second Wind working on me. I'm gonna use all the gas on my strongest move. That should take care of this hunk of junk."Marcella scoffs."Yeah. Remind me WHY you didn't use that before?""Kids. Now move it. I don't wanna hit you guys by accident. Remember what happened in Outer Heaven?""Yeah yeah, you almost destroyed the place. Just let us get far enough first okay?""Can't make any promises. I feel myself getting fatter. And my chest is hurting."You wait for a while until you're certain that the others are outside the area of your attack before you unleash everything. The last time you used this it almost killed you it drained you so much. So it should have no problem using up the Second Wind as well. After initiating it you're pretty sure everyone on the island, and perhaps even on neighboring ones saw the pillar of fire shooting for the heavens. What little remains of the decimated forest turns into ash and the ground gets scorched. At the very least the ash will nurture the new trees that will sprout in place of these ones. You return to the others with a limp and clothes marred by soot."Hey guys... any success?""Yeah. We found his lab. No thanks to you."Marcella shrugs."Copied some of his notes. Not sure who'll be able to make use of them but we have them. How about you?""I melted it all.""Aye. That's good."Greki nods."Black iron or no, mixing it with impurities from the ground will ruin any metal. C'mere lad, ye look out of it."The giant picks you up and starts carrying you in his palm as you sit down."Who're they?"You point at the marines standing in front of you and shaking.
"Well, ye said to leave them alone and come help ye. But since we broke their one ship they couldn't leave. So 'ere we are. We told 'em the truth. Showed some of the notes of that madman as proof.""P-Please! We swear we had nothing to do with him! W-We thought he was with us!""I know..."You respond. It's a struggle discerning what they feel right now. Fear, confusion, anger, maybe regret. There is a lot in there."S-So what will happen to us?"One of them gathers the courage to speak plainly."There is nothing on this island left. Even if HQ realizes something's wrong it could take them weeks for the one they send to get here.""I already called someone. They should be here in a few days-"You now look at them, at the kids and at the wounded marines that were also subjected to the cruel experiments of Bones.>But I don't trust you with anyones life. The patients are coming with us>Your wounded can stay. But I'm not letting you take the kids>I'm leaving the patients in your care. I hope you won't give them to a crazy scientist again>Other?Also. Will you stay with them until someone comes to pick them up?>Yes>No
>>5122178>Your wounded can stay. But I'm not letting you take the kidsAlmost missed the run. Granparents are having the 67th anniversary and had to help my bro find 67 roses.I can trust these guys to keep their folks alive, and if they can't then tough shit. The kids though come with us, because the amoral autistic semi-sociopath is probably safer for them than the fucking marines.
>>5122178Oh, and almost forgot.>NoWe already called for support. If they can't get here within a few hours/a couple of days then that's on them and their shitty logistical support.
>>5122178>>Your wounded can stay. But I'm not letting you take the kidsAnd if they want to leave it should be easy enough to find them a boat from Outer Heaven to Marineford. We're practically neighbors after all! >NoOnly reason I could see why would be to try and ambush them and get (more) hostages in return for Weavers release (if even still alive)... But Anon's didn't seem keen on helping her so... Nope. But we should load up on some of dat loot before we leave out of sheer piratical principle! if nothing else
>>5122178>Your wounded can stay. But I'm not letting you take the kids>YesMeet Smo-kun
>>5122178>But I don't trust you with anyones life. The patients are coming with usWe'll treat the marines and let them go in new heaven. Maybe start an orphanage too...
>>5122206Only reason I could see why would be to try and ambush them and get (more) hostages in return for Weavers release (if even still alive)... But Anon's didn't seem keen on helping her so... Nope.In their defense she's stupid, and not the fun kind of stupid that can eventually make you friends but the annoying kind of stupid that costs you money. Something would have done her in eventually, as far as this situation goes it's just Darwin in action.
>>5122178>Your wounded can stay. But I'm not letting you take the kids>NoI want to stay to get smoker to somewhat understand what went on here but that is too risky.
>>5122211I think that'd be funny, but, eh. How would you get Silver to sit still and do nothing for a few days?

"You can keep your wounded guys and wait for rescue. But the kids are coming with me. Got nothing against you, I just hate and don't trust you guys. So I'm taking them with me. And none of you can stop me. If they wanna go join you guys they can. I'm like... living right nextdoor.""S-So you're letting us live?""Yeap.""Now excuse me. I want a warm glass of milk and a big nap.""W-Wait! What about food?""What ABOUT food? Figure it out.""If you leave the sick with us they'll die without any food!""Aw shucks. That's right. Toxin, hook them up with enough snacks that'd last a few days. But only for the sick.""With all due respect captain. They'd just eat the food of the sick when they got hungry.""Hnnnnnn-"You grumble."Okay fine! Leave them plenty of food! We'll just kill some sea kings on the way! Now start herding the kids to Daunty. I'm sleepy."Following your instructions the crew leaves a few days worth of supplies for the marines and takes the kids onboard. Naturally some of them objected to going with pirates but their cooperation was never necessary. Once everything was done and all the dumped wapometal was collected by your fish friends the Dauntless swiftly got out of there before any reinforcements showed up. You ended up sleeping in your cabin for a few days before waking up with a mighty hunger and a need for milk. After a quick meal it was time for you to survey the situation on deck. Many of the children, especially those who were hooked up to the Black Testament were just apathetic at worst. They get that something bad was being done to them. But some still cling to the idea that their beloved professor was a good guy. Can't win 'em all."So Stitches. You think you can fix their little problem.""I-I don't think I can. P-Parts for children are not easy to get.""Yeah. We don't get many kid visitors and they are probably attached to their limbs. Hmmmm. Okay hear me out: Marine Daycare!""No...""Okay."Realizing that you won't be able to give them replacement limbs until they grow up you decide to address them directly."Okay you shitty little brats! Your home is gone, the professor turned out to be a piece of shit and your days are probably ruined. But don't worry! Because I'm here! We're going to a super cool place that I built! It has a garden, an amusement park, lots of food and drinks, and mermaids if you're into that. Oh! Guns too! Lotsa guns! You can have any you want! I'll let you stay there until we find you a place you can call home. Or if you want to go to the marines then the New Marineford is being built next door. I'll let you borrow a boat and go there if you wish. I really don't care. But as long as you're on my ship you'll behave. Okay?"
They seem a bit confused but hopeful that they are free to go after you take them to Outer Heaven. But oddly enough they seem to have grown quite a bit attached to you after they witnessed storms that'd make even the most adamant atheist get on his knees and pray and seamonsters that make their most terrifying nightmares piss themselves. And Ann helped too by doing what she does.Reaching Fish-man Island after a few days you stop to pay the fish-men who so generously helped you hauling the wapometal and to pick Shelley back up from Shirahoshi. The two of them had a rough start at first but grew fond of each others company."What do we say to nice people Shelley?""Thank you!""That's it!"Shirahoshi smiled."I'm looking forward to seeing you again!"The kids were astonished by this."Y-You know the mermaid princess? Like the princess from the stories?""Yeah! She's my friend! Pirates can make friends with whoever they want!"After resupplying and paying the fish-men you waste no time getting back to Outer Heaven in order to wrap things up. You send the wapometal to the various blacksmiths, shipwrights and engineers to have some fun with and produce many wonderful weapons for Outer Heaven. And at the same time you have the children moved under the care of Ann who has them move in to the little church she had built in the place. For now that'll be a good place for them. Once they realize what happened to them they can decide what they want to do."Finally. I was getting so bored of it all. I want a shower. And a nap. And a blankie."After some proper rest you decided to properly celebrate, since the afterparty is always the best part of an adventure. You order yourself a full course of the best stuff that's on the island and you get about halfway done with a tankard of ale that's the size of a man when Pascia rushes up to you."I'm sorry captain! I couldn't stop them!""Stop who? What's wrong? Oh."You see two groups cutting through the crowd surrounding your party area and it looks like neither of them are listening to anything your underlings tell them to. Both of these gangs you recognize and they invoke mixed feelings in you. Mainly curiosity as to what the hell they are doing here. One of them are none other than the Kuja pirates, or at least some of them. The other are a bit more surprising. The Revolutionary Army. They both get in front of your table around the same time and they waste no time butting heads with each other."Whoever you are, get out of my way!"Sandersonia, the smaller sister of Boa Hancock snaps at the much smaller girl."We've been waiting here for days! You can wait your turn!"Koala is the one talking back to her. You remember meeting her and her entourage on San Faldo and didn't think you'd ever bump into her again.But none of that matters. They are spoiling your mood and it's best if you deal with them quick.>Hi Koala. Long time no see>What brings you here Soni?>Get off my island. Both of you>Other?
>Either stop fighting or both of you can leave
>>5122321>Hi Koala. Long time no seeWe invited one of these, what does the other want.
>>5122321>Other?>One, stop shouting because I had a long few days saving some children and I wanted to take a break. Two, this is my place so I'd appreciate it if you didn't break any of my stuff unless you plan to pay for it. And Three, if you want to talk to me then we got a system, I don't know what it is because I'm in charge and I don't have to worry about that crap, but my crew does and I can tell you didn't ask any of them what it is either. Now that we got all that out of the way Welcome to Outer Heaven! You here for booze, food, or fun?
>>5122327This, this is good.
>>5122327"I don't know what it is because I'm in charge"This is gold, support!
>>5122321>>Hi Koala. Long time no seeHola chiquita
Okay so Koala wins but that's a good write-in>writing
>>5122352There was 3 supporting votes for write-in, but 2 for koala...?
>>5122360And what? You want me to write a whole post again to decide who gets to go first?
>all the sonifags are goneSuch lackluster dedication to their waifu.
>>5122372They realized the error of their ways, I presume.
>>5122365Alight, misunderstood what you were getting at. s'all good.
"QUIET!"You slam down your keg and the air rumbles."One, stop shouting because I had a lot of long days involving children and I want to take things easy. Two, this is my place. If you break anything you'll pay for it. And Three, if you want to talk we have a system here. I don't know how it works because I'm the boss and I don't have to worry about that crap. But my crew does and they don't seem to know why you're here either. So go and ask someone less important about how to meet me. In the meantime, welcome to Outer Heaven! What do you want? Booze, food or fun?""I-I just want an audience-""Same.""Then what are you, deaf? I just told you what to do! Come on, chop chop!"As both groups leave you to your meal you shake your head."I swear the nerve of these people!"After making everyone get back in line you finish your little feast and Pascia approaches you while you're letting your belly rest. Seeing how both groups are somewhat important she moved them up a list a bit and she asked you which one you want sent in first. Since Sandersonia was actually invited here you decided to handle Koala first and see what the Revolutionaries want from you. She is brought before you alongside her fish-man compatriot and both look quite a bit more meek than they were a minute ago. Showing who's boss always works!"Hey Koala! Long time no see.""Yeah. It's been a minute. You uh, changed more than I expected.""Nah. I don't change. I'm always the same. I just get better.""Right. Anyway this might come as a shock but we did not just come for a visit. Do you... still remember how things went in San Faldo?""I get kicked in the head a lot but I think I do. You wanted me to join your little army.""That's correct. Have you... given it any consideration?""No. Why would I?""Well after the little stunt you pulled at Mary Geoise I thought you had a change of heart. I know it changed a lot with us."Koala sighs."When the news hit us things got complicated. People were divided. Some were so impressed they wanted to follow your example. Others were repulsed. Some so much that they left us.""Two things. I don't get what you mean. And why should I care?""You've been around, haven't you? Traveled the world. Seen things. I thought maybe your mind changed. I mean I can't imagine what'd drive anyone to attack the Celestial Dragons head on.""No. I said I don't change. And the answer is the same. You want to fight with me? Fine. But you'll fight under me! I'll be the boss!""That's dumb.""Why?""You couldn't even beat Sabo, not to speak of the leader. They are both strong.""No. You just hit hard. But you're all weenies."The fish-man slams his fist on the table."Watch your mouth boy! You're insulting our leader, you're insulting us!"Jaws does not take this sitting down."So you'd raise your hand against the man who is national hero of the Ryugu Kingdom? Is your allegiance stronger to the Revolutionaries than your own brothers and sisters?"
>>5122390RACE WAR STARTS NOW
>>5122390Man if this is their best attempt at understanding Silver they're fucked from the outset. He's basically telling them straight up his main motivation is "I do what I want" and nothing grander than that.Silver doesn't give a shit about revolution because he understands it's a revolution, shit just goes around in a circle. If you want him to fuck something up make it sound fun, otherwise hit bricks.
>>5122390She better get to the point soon or she's going to make Silver bored.
>>5122390>You wanna join us>I literally don't understand how anyone would have the balls to attack the DragonsPoor Koala is still under the impression that Silver is a real person, rather then the barely constrained batshit little adventure seeking monster that he is.
>>5122400>>5122408I hope Gu pops in waxing philosophical about "does the wind think about where it blows?" to try and explain to these brainlets that Silver is a brainlet.
"There are bigger things than Fish-man Island boy. I'm fighting for a higher cause. You?""I fight for my own. And his. Now back off before I demonstrate how.""Hack please, we didn't come here to fight! Sorry about that. But can we please skip the insults?""I don't insult people. That's just how it is. You want me to join you but why should I? You guys have been doing this for a while. What did you do? I said one day that I wanna go to Mary Geoise and have some fun. And that's what I did. If I was your leader you would've won already. But I'm not so you didn't. Join me and you might.""But you have no intention of revolting against the government."The fish-man observes."You get what this ding dong is saying Jaws? I'm a pirate. And I declared war on them! A LOT OF TIMES! Hell I probably killed more than you weenies combined! Since all you guys do is sneak around and run away. That's your problem. You're all schemers and not doers. That's why you'll never win. Instead of going out and doing the thing you sit around planning it and run away when someone comes close to you. Big weenie attitude.""Hack please! I'm sorry Silver. I get that you don't want to join. Can't blame me for trying though. But that's not what I came here for.""Then spit it out. I'm getting bored already.""Well even if you don't feel like joining we don't have to be enemies. Our enemies are the same. Like you said, the government considers you an enemy. Like us. And it's good for us outcasts to stick together. Right?""Hmmm."There is something in what she says. Then again..."Well anyway, remember how I said how things are a bit hectic right now? The navy is getting more violent, the government is more aggressive and not to mention the Yonko. Things are changing faster and faster. With the new age coming the time for the revolution is approaching. And... well we could use the help. We need weapons, safe havens, manpower. Anything really. If you can help us even a little we could be friends. And we always take care of our friends. No matter what!""Did your boss ask you to do this?""No. Dragon does not know I'm here. In fact he'd probably be mad if he did. It's just that, we could always use more friends. Even if we don't like to admit it.">Well Outer Heavens doors are open for everyone. And I could give you some guns. If it'll piss off the Government (full cooperation)>I guess I can offer a little aid. We got some spare guns here and there (a little aid)>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handouts>No. I don't deal with weenies>Other?
>>5122408>>5122421Seriously, Silver's whole motivation (that is to say our whole motivation) was "punch me in the face I burn your fucking house down and shit on your car's dashboard while I'm at it."We don't give a shit about "Ideals" and "The Future" or anything else in that vein. If we help folks it's because we were there and they were either nice enough to give us food, or they seemed interesting enough to hang out with. Slavery might be the one thing we have some kind of higher notion about and that usually ends with "kill the slaver, free the slaves" or the more fun "free the slaves and let them literally tear their slaving master apart with their bare hands and a complimentary supply of knives thanks to the Outer Heaven tourist board."
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>5122431i'm really fucking torn here>Well Outer Heavens doors are open for everyone. And I could give you some guns. If it'll piss off the Government (full cooperation)>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handoutsmy vote is the will of the dice god
>>5122431>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handoutsSame rules as everybody else. You wanna crash or you want weapons, Ass, Grass, or Gas. You pay the asking price you get the service, end of.
>>5122431>>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handoutsBut we know they're good for it so if they want to pay in installments, plus interest, that's fine.
>>5122440Oh come now, we probably have literal shiploads of guns, swords, bullets and powder courtesy of the marines... And if it'l piss off the Gouverment *and* her boss? Oh come now, it costs us nothing and would be good for a laugh. >>5122431>Well Outer Heavens doors are open for everyone. And I could give you some guns. If it'll piss off the Government (full cooperation)But no mucking about on islands with out flag. Those are already free.
>>5122431>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handouts.Anyone can already enter Outer Heaven whenever they want. But we aren't a fucking charity. Ignore the kids we just picked up.
>>5122451I mean you're not wrong, but they're weenies. I don't want to encourage their weenieness. If they want our stuff they have to prove they can get it, and that means proving to the people that have it they can either afford it or trade services equal to their worth. Nobody gets a free lunch, even the orphans have to pay with chores.
>>5122431>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handoutsdems the rules I didn't make em' well sliver did, but he forgot when he made them.
>>5122455You're not wrong. But she did have some balls to come out here against everyones wishes... Even if we don't offer handouts, which is fair and seems to be where we're going... I mean I'm sure just about everyone on board would be happy to have a regular trading partner, as would Silver island if they the revvos can get there on the regular.So we can mention that they are more then welcome to do whatever they want, because everyone is.
>>5122431>>No. You are free to buy whatever you want. But no handoutsif you want actual cooperation prove you can do stuff, give me a reason to believe in your cause fools, cause i see a bunch of weenies who can only talk a good fight and can't even do what you set out to do, prove otherwise and we can talk further and we will probably do more then just sell stuff to you guys. Until then no free stuff for weenies.
>>5122451>it costs us nothingIt actually explicitly costs us whatever we give them.
Well apathy is marginally better than outright hostility I guess.>writing
"Kek! Of course I'll lend a hand. You can help yourself. There are dozens of places that sell weapons here. Pick any of them!""But that-""Same rules as everybody else. Anyone can enter Outer Heaven and do as they please. No special treatment. And no freebies.""If we had the money to buy them I wouldn't be asking for aid."You shrug."Tough luck. When you have the money I'll sell to you. You're free to come and hang out. But if you want your clubhouse here you're gonna pay rent. And nobody touches my flag. Sorry. I didn't make the rules. Well, I did but I don't remember making them so it doesn't count.""You... you really don't care do you?"Gu chuckles in his seat with crossed arms."Do you think the river cares where it goes and who it washes over? You severely misjudged our captain.""Well said Toxin!"You get up and walk over to the edge of your platform overlooking the area below. People are going about, doing their own thing ignorant to the fact that you're looking down at them."Listen to the noise. Can you hear it? The pulses of the living. The ironic rhythm is a grand orchestra, it's never the same tone! You see I want that, I want that. That's all I want! People to go and do what they want! You want to stop some schmucks from telling them what to do. So you can do it instead. I don't care for that. And that is why you won't win."You turn back to look at Koala and Hack."This world isn't yours and it isn't the governments. You weenies who sit on your precious islands all your lives. This is a pirates world, it's for those who go out and do what they want! Now get that weak stuff out of here. I got a bunch more guests waiting in line and you're holding them up!"
>>5122493>Gu chuckles in his seat with crossed arms.yey
>>5122493Man when Silver start talking about the government he just gives me those Nestor Maknho vibes
>>5122493Alright, lets see if she proves us right or not. Because if she just goes "Oh, ok. Sorry for asking" then, yea, but I'm almost hoping for her to show a bit of spine here rather then just slinking away.I dunno, that's just what that last line feels like to me.
>>5122507I think the problem is she's not thinking like a revolutionary. She's thinking "well once we win we'll make more fair rules" or something like that. When you want to change the system you have to be willing to CHANGE it, from the bottom to the top. It's not just, oh we have to be better leaders, it's "the world is fucked from the ground up so we need to toss this whole fucking paradigm out and start from the basics again."You can't say you're fixing the world when all you're doing is changing fucking hats and maybe, maybe, being slightly less shit than the last guy. You want to fix the world, then get your hands dirty, cut the bitch open, grab its organs and do some goddamn surgery instead of sitting their wringing your fucking hands.
>>5122493Bitch look around you, this is what true freedom is like. Every man his own, all is done by his hand. All work the sweat of his own brow.It's dirty, it's dangerous, it's violent, and there's nowhere else you'll feel more alive than here.
>>5122501also potential flag of Outer Haven? Or does Silver use the one of his crew for the city
As the two of them take their leave Will lets out a chuckle."Hah! They got told!""Don't write them off yet Bullseye. Maybe they'll get smart and join me. Or not! KEK!"You get back in your seat and have the other guest brought before you, which is Sandersonia. The Kuja comes to you with her two escorts who seem to be here as purely a formality. She shows no signs of the previous bravado she exhibited during her march. Probably that was the extent of the courage she gathered up and now it's all gone. She stands before you tall and proud but the tension in her muscles betrays her nervousness. She glares at you without blinking for several moments before her escorts start whispering among themselves. They think she's trying to threaten you. But in reality she doesn't dare to speak."Hi Soni! You accepted my invitation!"She jolts up like a current just ran through her back."I most certainly did not! I have come here on official and very important business! My sister sent me to serve as her diplomat! And you will treat this with the utmost confidentiality as this is a serious matter! If word gets out that we met under any circumstance the results could be catastrophic!""Uuuuuh-""Oh for the love of-"Taking pity on the flustered girl Marcella got up from her place and walked over to the huge girl to whisper something in her ear."Erm... O-Okay? Keep this a secret please?""Oh! Got it! So what can I secretly help you with?""Great! I mean yes, I mean-"She takes a deep breath before continuing."You... were at our island. You saw what it's like. Originally our island was isolated from the rest of the world, it was a myth. But since the World Government can now cross the Calm Belt my sister decided to join the Shichibukai in exchange for their protection.""Yes.""Well we fear that soon it won't be enough. We are worried that our people the Kuja tribe will be defenseless. And you proved that we are right to be worried. Sooner or later someone will get to us. And we may not be able to defend ourselves."Sandersonia swallows hard."S-So. I've come bearing the request of my sister. We wish to receive your protection.""Hmmmm. I thought your sister hated my guts.""S-She is not a fan. No. So you understand why she wished to do things this way. She feels great shame asking aid from someone she despises. But we may not have the luxury of clinging to pride. And so, acknowledging that you are not on the best of terms she... sends... a... gift.""Ooooh I like gifts!""It's erm... me. In exchange for your flag she gives you leverage over her. Her own sister.">Kek! Hamhog wants my help! COOL!>Sorry this is not how I do things. So no>Other?
>>5122559>I'll take your island, but i don't own people. That's not how i do things. You can stay with me if you want, or not. I don't care.
>>5122559>Kek! Hamhog wants my help! COOL!>BUT you weenies will need to get stronger!
>>5122567Supporting. Also I get the feeling that she pulled a Koala and came here without her Sister's approval. Or at least she's making this deal without her approval at any rate, because Handcock would only sign up with Luffy not us. Hell she'd skin us alive just to have a throw rug.
Nono, no nono. Oh no, oh this sounds bad. This sounds a whole lot like "I'm selling you my sister" Which can only be wrong. >>5122559>Other?>Kek! Hamhog wants my help! COOL! *IF* you wanna be here you can stay, or don't, I don't own peopleI seriously wonder if Hancock actually made this offer or how on gods good, green earth someone bullied her into it I get it. Last time someone, slightly with our help but nevermind, tried to enslave her entire people. And if we can steal an entire island away from the WG on top of that? Then yea, I'm all in. Actually come to think of it, what are the odds of Koala sticking around and showing up *some time down the line* and going "Right, Silver, there's this really bid bad fortified Marine armory we'd like to raid... Split it 50/50?" after doing her homework on us
>>5122580Well... Luffy can't protect anything. Luffy isn't building an empire (even Silver doesn't realize it), Luffy doesn't have a history of making examples of people trying to fuck with his territory and Luffy didn't publicly defend her people against a would be conqueror.Yes I agree that Hancock would never sign up with us, personally. But she made this exact deal with the Dragons and Marines, and I dare bet you she hates them a whole lot more then she does us. One of the few redeeming qualities she actually has as a person.
>>5122559>>Other?Just innocently ask her what they hell we're supposed to do with her. What her get super flustered.
If we accept the offer does that mean we cocked Luffy of getting Hancock lands? Holy kek
>>5122599I mean you're not wrong, but this still feels, off, for lack of a better word.Like a perfectly cooked pizza sitting untouched in a house with a teenage boy. Either someone died or the brat doesn't know the food is there.
>>5122603*cucked fucking autocorrect
Awright that's one deal that's been made>writing
>>5122567+1 to this.
>>5122607>Like a perfectly cooked pizza sitting untouched in a house with a teenage boy. Either someone died or the brat doesn't know the food is there.Sounds more like wall chicken to me. Why is there a perfectly cooked chicken in the wall? How is it still warm? Why are we eating it despite it all? Mysteries.
>>5122607I agree. But the more I think about it the more I'm starting to believe it is from Hancock.Again, she signed up with the god damn World Gouverment for this kind of protection. Are we really a harder pill to swallow then the fucking WG?
>>5122617I'll be honest, it sounds to me like sonia was just down so bad for some silver that they HAD to send her off. That's probably all this is.
>>5122617Maybe not, but that's still saying robutussin tastes better than poorly made piss contaminated toilet wine.It's a fine fucking line is all I'm saying.
"The hell am I supposed to do with you?"You hear chuckles coming from behind."Hey Silver. She could probably give you milk you know!""WHAAAAAAAT?!""Huh? No? Well that's a shame. But anyway I'll take your island, but i don't own people. That's not how i do things. You can stay with me if you want, or not. I don't care. Oh and you'll have to not be weenies. I own only the best islands. Hey Spider! Get them a jolly roger. If they wanna use it then so be it.""So you mean you accept?""That's what I said."Sandersonia falls on her knees and breaks out in a cold sweat."Thank god. You two! You'll take the flag back to dear sister as soon as you get it. Do you understand? I'll stay here and do my duty.""But I said-""I'll stay here no matter what it takes. I know it'll be hard but for the sake of my sister and our people I'll endure anything! Now go brave warriors! Take our hope back home!"You scratch your head."I don't get it but good on you I guess. If anyone wants me I'll be on the toilet. That was enough business for a day."As you take your leave Marcella scoots over to Sandersonia."So erm. How much of that was real?""W-What?""Silver is an idiot. We aren't. Now out with it missy. We can still order you to get keelhauled!""I uh. I wanted to come here. The Elder said it'd do me good. And sister agreed after I begged her. But this was her idea. She said we might as well get something out of it since I'm coming here. Please don't tell him!""You kidding? Wouldn't do it for all the riches in the world! This is the most hilarious shit I've ever seen! Watching you squirm will be the best!""Poor girl doesn't know what she just did.""I-I feel bad for her. Competing with the mermaid princess will be hard.""M-Mermaid w-what?"
Aaaaand that's all there is for today. Don't wanna begin the next thing because it's going to take a while.Anyway I hope you enjoyed yourselves. Have a nice day. I'll see you guys next week
>>5122635Kek, sonia's gonna have a time of it for sure.Unless of course she just nuts up and fucks him on her own.
>>5122637Thanks for running spooks, this was a good one! Seriously good one, I did not see any of this coming but yea. Thank you, and sleep well
>>5122640Gonna be kinda hard, Silver doesn't know what sex is. If his dick gets hard he thinks you're supposed to use it to bludgeon people to death and he just hasn't figured out how yet.The only way to introduce him to the fact would be to frame it like a fight and if that's the case you'll be lucky to have any intact bones left, let alone bodily fluids.>>5122637Thanks for the run Spooky, see you next week.
>>5122646nah, the easiest way to do it would be to tell him "lay back for a second, i have something to show you" and then just fuckin' dive in.he won't care once he realizes he likes it.
>tfw silver gets a nursing fetish>tfw he can't actually partake because it would literally kill someone he'd drink so damn hardrip
>>5122659And yet once again, as >>5122670 has pointed out, you'll be lucky to survive the experience.Hell you got a better chance at surviving a Slaaneshi orgy, at least they understand the concept of moderation enough to scorn it. Silver will just keep going until you die or he passes out, and I'm willing to put money on the former unless you're a sayian or a kryptonian.
>>5122716>silver finally starts to run out of steam>he pops a second wind>the entire crew has to pitch in to sate him>including the men
>>5122635Ah she's adorableThanks for the run Spooks
>>5122722>Eventually it gets to the point where if you get sent to execution on Outer Heaven they just throw you in a pit with Silver stripped naked and covered in baby oil.>The smart people asked to be armed as a last request. It doesn't help.
>>5122739You misunderstand. The weapon is not for Silver
>>5123123We know it's not, that's the scary part.
Hey wassup. I decided I'm going to be running tomorrow. So that's Tuesday at 15:00 GMTAlso, in the meantime here's something I scribbled today
"Captain. We got a problem."Devil Diaz hurries to you. He seems desperate."Come quick! Some thug is beating up our people!""Hmmmm? Who?""We don't know but he's tough! He already knocked out twenty people!"You toss the comic book you've been reading aside and get up. This is unacceptable. Those who work for you can't be such weenies. You'll have to chew them out for it. But first you gotta take care of the ruffian who thinks he can mess with you. Going to the dock in question you see people lodged in the walls and beaten to a pulp, with a rather robust, bearded fellow standing in the middle with his hand around the throat of one of your guys."C-Captain-"The grunt coughs up blood before the large man tosses him on the ground."You'll clean that up.""Barorororo. You must be the one in charge. Took you long enough to get here.""It was only a minute.""Slow. Too slow. This is a nice place you got. But it's going to be much better in the hands of someone who's not weak. Barorororo."You hear another pair of footsteps coming from behind before abruptly stopping. Sandersonia freezes in place as she starts muttering to herself."I knew I felt a familiar presence. World! How is he alive?""You know this guy?""Byrnndi World. He was imprisoned in Impel Down because he wants to destroy the world. But he broke out when Blackbeard broke in. He kidnapped me because he wanted to capture big sister. I thought he blew up with his ship after Strawhat beat him!"Goofy aside that's some serious business."Destroy the world? But I live there!""Barorororo! If I didn't know already I'd say fate is on my side! I find a fort that I can use to destroy the world government and you all in the same place! But I won't make the same mistake twice. I'll just kill you to lure Hancock here! When she and that Strawhat show up I'll sink their ships in an instant and be done with this!""Ahem!"You clear your throat."Hey Beanie Weenie! You're forgetting about something!""Huh?""Me."
"Barorororo! You're right. I'm sorry. I'll handle you quickly. This will only take 50 seconds.""Watch out! He's an extremely dangerous pirate with a bounty of 500.000.000 and he ate the Moa Moa no Mi that lets him multiply the speed, weight and size of things up to a hundred times!""Don't care. Double shift."As you crouch down World coats his entire body in armament."MOA MOA: HUNDRED TIMES-"Before he could say his attack a wet squelching sound can be heard and a sharp pain shoots through his chest. Looking down he sees that you crossed the distance between the two of you so fast he didn't even notice you approaching. And then he sees you elbow deep in his chest cavity with his blood trickling down your arm. Your claws made quick work of his skin and ribs with the speed and strength of the Zephonim and Dumahim behind them."W-Wha-AAAAAAARGH!"He screams as you give his still beating heart a squeeze."Don't matter if it's a hundred or ten times, a weenie is still less than one Silver. Now listen Beanie. You attacked my men, want to take what's mine, destroy where I live and hurt Snaky-""S-Snaky? You shouldn't disrespect someone by giving them such a childish name!"Sandersonia speaks with a barely noticeable blush on her cheeks."I'd kick your ass for any of those. But I'm killing you for all of them."With a wrench you pull your arm out his side and blood gushes forth from his open chest. As his heavy body hits the floor you look back to look at Diaz."Hey Devil. How many seconds was that?""Erm... about 50 I guess?""Huh. Okay I admit, he was better at counting than I am."
>>5124938poor little movie antagonist. guy never bothered to check the newspapers.if youre throwing movie bosses in the filler period, think we'll meet shiki before strawhats fuck him up? i suppose its late now since that movie was barely pre marineford, but he still has a remarkable place in cannon
>>5124938Damn. Should have kept him around. He'd make a great stopwatch. Oh well, wasted potential is abundant.
>>5124972Shiki was already kinda fucked up. Pre-timeskip and all thatI'm still not really sure about using movie or special stuff. I just binge watched Heart of Gold and 3D2Y back to back and thought this would be fun. I enjoyed Heart of Gold a lot more than this anywayOut of all of them I'd only consider using Z because Z is just THAT good. And one filler is worth using but the rest are meh. Shiki I may end up using but only because his place in canon is kinda nebulous and because of his ties to Rocks. Just not sure how I'd utilize him
>>5124936>>5124938Poor world, he would'a been a bloody nasty bastard to take on... But you don't show up to Silvertown tired and wounded, act like that, and expect to come out alive. Oh well, Silver's buildup to be Luffy's new world antagonist continues.Also did we ever use Double Shift before? It's kind of a gamechanger if we haven't, sneaky sneaky Spooks.
You think Silver would consider Roger a weenie because he couldn't beat up Rocks on his own?
>>5125292Maybe. Roger did manage to get the last laugh on everyone with just two sentences. So that's a pretty baller way to be a bigger man and use your words like Ann would suggest. Silver would definitely think Garp was a weenie though.
>>5125292He at least liked his last words enough to use them to meme on Luffy.
>>5125234World was not that strong actuallyHe mostly fought fodder and his main feats come from naval combat where he could sink the eneny before a brawl could happenThe moment Luffy figured out armament proper World ate shit hardAnd actually Silver used it to demolish the snake statue Rigami animated with his powers>>5125292I mean it depends. It's just as likely that he'd call Rocks a weenie. Can't even win 2v1.At the end Roger won and became the king. That's a big achievement.We'd need to know the details before passing judgementWhat he'd definitely find weenie stuff is teaming up with Marines of all people because Silver hasnt met a marine he likes or hasnt learned to dislike yetMaybe Coby but he's a weenie
>>5124938Double shiftho fuck.
>>5125622Yes, sure... But Armament seems to be something of Silver's weak spot, at least if I remember our armament dice rolls correctly.
>>5125827Yeah. The stars kinda aligned on that one as I intended for him to have lackluster armament anyway
>>5125827>>5125880I like that he's not a big amament guy, since it would be pretty redundant for Silver to constantly apply armament to the zoan stuff he already has.Plus, this way Silver has to rely on his unique way of doing things instead of using black metal for everything.
Okay a bit of development. I may have tostart a few minutes lateI'll have to quickly go tothe pharmacy and buy some stuff before running
A couple days pass without anything worth mentioning. Which is good, at least it allows you to properly recover from your adventures. Rumors start reaching your ear that Captain Weaver and her pirate alliance seemingly disappeared off the map. You reckon they were taken to Impel Down but struggle caring.Meanwhile Sandersonia, who willingly stayed behind as her fellows went back home, has remained rather passive. She hasn't done much as getting accustomed to the vibe of Outer Heaven was quite difficult for her. As an officer of the Kuja Pirates she was exposed to more men than most of her countrywomen combined. But brief encounters are nothing compared to being surrounded by this many strangers for so long. She probably did not know there were this many men to begin with. She hasn't left the nice room you gave her for any real length of time. But it looks like she finally managed to gather her courage and poke her head out today. She shadowed you around all day from a safe distance, observing your every move. In the afternoon she finally decided to speak with you while you were playing cards with Marcella."May I ask a question?""Bathrooms are that way.""No. Not that.""Then shoot.""What do you do here? All you did the whole day was go around eating, drinking and playing games with random strangers.""I know. Quite a busy day. But I put up with it because I love my job.""I thought you are the leader of this place.""I am.""Then why aren't you leading?""Look. I'm the boss. That means I don't have to worry about stuff like that. Because I have people do things for me."Sandersonia seems to be at a loss so Hook decides to clarify things."Look princess-""I'm not a princess.""Whatever toots. Silver has a job. He is the figurehead. He works best when he doesn't do any work, because then he doesn't make a mess and people see that everything around him works without him lifting a finger. Because this place runs on big dick energy.""Big what?""And so when Silver actually does something that's a pretty big deal. It means someone fucked up or something big is going on.""Yeah!"You cross your arms behind your back."I lead by example. I do what I want and tell everyone to do the same. For example. They want money, so they do work for me! They want cushy lives, they don't cross me. Simple!"
With a big smile on your face and a thoroughly confused snake you return to your card game. But as you're contemplating which game word you want to misuse as you reveal your hand something hits your ear. Something magical. Stopping mid motion you turn to the source of the noise and stare into the distance with starry eyes. Marcella and Sandersonia obviously can't hear it as they are giving you some odd looks. But soon they become aware of what got you so excited so quickly.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGmz8jdW810It's a circus!From one of the docks an entire grand troupe rolls in and floods a great chunk of Outer Heaven with confusion and merriment. Animals from every corner of the world, freakshows that you haven't seen before, acrobats, strongmen, jugglers and mimes are just the things you can name in this colorful tidal wave of joy. And of course the clowns! Oh the clowns. Natures mimes. They honk, squeak and laugh so hard it's contagious. They hand out balloon animals with one hand and spray water in your face with the other. Such majestic creatures."Eh? What is this?""Where the hell did this come from?!""WHO CARES? IT'S A CIRCUS!">I call dibs! (Rush in alone)>Come on let's go!>Call everyone! They gotta see this!>Other?
>>5125969>>Call everyone! They gotta see this!
>>5125969>Come on let's go!
>>5125969>Scream to the heavens so loud that the entire island can hear it>CIRCUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSS!~
>>5125969>Call everyone! They gotta see this!And when I say everyone I mean everyone, even the blues. Especially the Blues, they could use the distraction from how boring they are.
>>5125969>Call everyone! They gotta see this!It might be a trap but who gives a fuck? CIRCUS!
>>5125969>Call everyone! They gotta see this!
>>5125979>>5125973inb4 Silver deafens the whole island>writing
"It's the Circus!""The fuck is a circus doing here?! We're in the middle of the Grand Line!""Who cares?! Get a snail and call the others! They have to see this!"Marcella stubbornly refuses your direct order so you decide to take matters into your own hand by unhinging your jaw and letting your voice reverberate throughout the place."HEEEEEEY! EEEEVERYOOOOONE! IT'S THE CIIIIRCUUUUUUUUUUUUS!"The happy music stops with a scratch and everyone is looking at you."Sorry! Don't mind me! Just go back to doing what you were!"The artists shrug alongside the animals and the happy music resumes as if nothing happened. As you wait for the others to arrive the crowd grows bigger and bigger around the company and the ringmaster riding atop a white elephant uses a megaphone to introduce his company."Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Step right up, step right up! Don't be shy! You are about to witness something you've never seen before, heard before, dreamt before! The most amazing show in the world! It is an honor to be here in the famous, infamous, the beloved, the coveted Outer Heaven! I am Bertram Foolhardy and WE are the Picaroon Troupe!""WHAT?!""You know the Hook?""DUH! The Troupe is the greatest circus in the world! They perform in every corner of the world! THE FUCK ARE THEY DOING HERE?""We are part of the world.""NO! You don't get it! They go from island to island to perform! People from all around the world gather to watch their show! And it's said they only perform in a place once in a hundred years! We should've heard months ago that they are coming here!""Kekeke! That means we are important enough to get their attention!"As you're talking with Marcella the others finally start to arrive and you make your way to the performers, pushing everyone aside that dares to stand between you and the attractions. As you pierce the wall of people you are greeted by a cavalcade of colors and shapes, animals, people, animal people, tall people, short people, people with weird limbs and people who are half man and half woman are all present. They all move to the rhythm of the music as if they are all one and enchant those that they get close to with their weird, eccentric but strangely beautiful art. Small and skinny women lift big burly men in the air and juggle with them and wild animals at the same time. Mimes parade around people with almost magical displays, you suspect some of them might be from Mime Island they are so good. And of course the clowns. Can't forget about the clowns. They go around handing out balloon art, throwing pies in the air and generally being a nuisance but never so much that they'd earn the ire of anyone. Their playful pranks only bring joy to even the grimmest of sailors. One of them carelessly throws a cream pie but misses the mark and ends up smacking you in the face with it. You don't mind. Instead you lick most of it off with Gu swiping a bit off your cheek. He's left speechless afterwards.
>>5126062Oh man that's gotta be some serious poison right there. I'm talkin' some grade A gourmet shit.
>>5126065It's the greatest poison of all. Sugar
More and more bizarre sights fill the halls of Outer Heaven as the ringmaster hurries over to you with a handkerchief in hand."A thousand apologies sir! Please allow me to fix that!""No thanks! I don't want to waste a drop!"Your tongue extends out of your mouth and pretty much wipes your face clean which makes Gu mad."Hey! Leave some for the rest of us you glutton!""Phew. I'm glad you don't take offense to that. You wouldn't believe how thin skinned some people are captain."The last word rings in your ear."You know who I am?""Of cooourse captain Silver! Why I wouldn't be a good ringmaster if I didn't know who our host was. And your reputation precedes you. I hope our abrupt appearance doesn't inconvenience you.""Are you kidding?! This is awesome!""Ah, music to my ears! Then let me be blunt. Would you mind if we used your fine little floating island to set up our tent?""Nope! Pick a spot and set up wherever you want!""Oh nonono. I was thinking... all.""GAAAAAAASP! YES!""Excellent!"The ringmaster claps his hands twice and big wagons roll in from the port. Within seconds the men operating them pull a lever on each one and they spill their contents all over the place. Each member of the Troupe then jumps into action with agility and speed the likes of which would make even some seasoned pirates envious. In just a minute the entire interior of Outer Heaven is changed to look like the insides of a tent. Those same wagons that carried all the decoration are then transformed into food vendors, various carnival games and attractions much to the mounting joy of all."Whew. They aren't the worlds best for nothing. They work fast!"Bullseye observes."MMMM-HMMMM!""It appears the captain is already stuffing his face with hotdogs-""Yes Will. And melted cheese. And popcorn. Oh god he found the cotton candy.""Hey Gu, how was the pie by the way?""Ahem. Yeah. Well it was okay. Now if you'll excuse me I need to follow Silver. Must get those recipes..."Toxin mumbles.As you gorge yourself on carnival food you realize that your crew has scattered to entertain themselves with the various attractions. Only Sandersonia remained where you left her, standing quite out of place as the bustling crowd flows around her. Eating the bones of a corndog you approach her."They left you?""I erm. Yes.""Well why don't you go and have some fun? This place is awesome!""I... don't know how. I've never seen a place like this.""Wow. Your life sucks.">Come let's play some games!>They are performing over there. Wanna watch?>But you know music right? Let's check out the band!>Other?
>>5126082>Come let's play some games!
>>5126082>>Come let's play some games!This one looks fun, and this one no this one, wait what's everybody laughing at over there.>>They are performing over there. Wanna watch?Oh what's that, do you hear that?>>But you know music right? Let's check out the band!Let's go, co... Oh oh oh clowns the clowns are doing something big where is he going with that ladder.>> Other
Gamu time>writing>>5126098I like this one
>>5126082>>Come let's play some games!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwZjlHL377Q"Come one let's play some games!"You grab Sandersonia by the hand and start dragging her."This one looks fun and that one too! But wait why is everyone laughing? OH! They are performing! Wanna watch? Sniff sniff. Ah but there is something tasty there that I haven't tried yet! And what's that sound? The band is playing over there! CLOWNS? Why do they need that big ladder?! GAAAAAASP! LET'S GOOOOOO!""Ah. It looks like you're a bit overwhelmed. Are you okay?""Of course I am! It's the circus! It's the happiest place on earth! Every kid loves the circus!""But you're not a little kid anymore.""Well not with that attitude! Come! I'll show you how to have some fun!""Let's erm just pick one first, okay?""Okay!"You decide to stick with your original plan which is the many, MANY games on display. There is a rather large variety of them from games of skill to games of luck and pure fun. Some you can win prizes at, some are just for the sake of it. And then there are some that are just bizarre and they seem to get more and more deranged as you go along. They seem to cater to a wide variety of tastes. You decide to stick with the simpler ones. Smashing a big hammer down as a test of strength is fun, as is fishing apples out of a barrel with only your mouth. The big snake is pretty hesitant at first but as you ease her into things she starts having fun.Once you feel like you had your fill and need to sit down you choose one last booth to play at, this time for a prize. It's nothing outlandish, just a regular ball game where you have to topple all the targets. But this is the New World and the game is... scaled up a bit. Instead of a soft ball you throw a cannon ball and instead of cans it's a fat stack of barrels full of water that you must break down. But wait. One of them sounds different. It's filled with cement. Oh well. This must be the expert course. You decide to shift one of your arms for maximum oomph and tear down not just the barrels but the stall around them."Whoops. Sorry!"Thankfully nobody got seriously injured, only the owner was buried by his stall. Deciding it's better not to linger you pick our your prize from the rubble and run away."Here. It's yours. You seem to like snakes so I picked this one.""Y-You sure?""Yeah! Take it! I just wanted to play.""Thanks but... this is an eel.""Eels are the snakes of the ocean.""But... You know what? Never mind!"She hugs her big plush affectionately.
>>5126145>"Eels are the snakes of the ocean."
>>5126145murray confirmed for snake fishman
>>5126145"But... You know what? Never mind!"Go with the flow, just go with the flow.
"Thank you! It was a bit weird. But I had fun.""Kekeke! I'm glad!"As you giggle to yourself your ears pick up something."Ooooh? The band is coming this way!"You get up to look at them but don't see the marching rows of people anywhere."That's weird. I hear it but it's not there. Wait... GAAAAAAAAAASP! NO WAY!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51WMKnG8FvkThere is no band. And there never was. Well, maybe there is one somewhere else but the music here does not come from any mere band. It's a single person. A clown to be specific. They are standing and balancing atop a rolling ball with multiple different instruments strapped to them at once. A single person doing the work of an entire band on their own."PEEERFECT!""What is?""I promised Will I'd do it and now I can! Imma do it!"Running forward you fly up in the air in your hybrid form and touch the clowns head with your clawed feet before lifting them up in the air. They fearfully blow into the harmonica in their mouth and look up sweating like hell. You return a grin to them and speak up."Hey! You! Join my crew!"The clown blows into their harmonica as hard as they causing them to faint from the lack of air and fear. You are left just flying there, staring at them with a closed mouth and eyes wide open. You did not realize they were going blue through the paint. Hell, you thought that's just how clowns look like, white and all. You set down the poor clown and wait for them to return to consciousness. Sandersonia just stares at this in disbelief but decides to stay by your side either out of solidarity or because she feels awkward alone in this place."Do you... always make such hasty decisions?""Yes.""Oh.""Fuffuffuffuffu!"Laughs come from behind you which makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up."That is quite amusing!"You stand up to look at the person that managed to sneak up on you and you quickly move your hands over your weapons. Sandersonia meanwhile drops her plushy and starts shaking."Donquixote Doflamingo?! What are you doing here?""Oh? You are the sister of the Pirate Empress, aren't you? Fancy bumping into you here!"You have no idea what one of the seven warlords is doing here, much less how he managed to get the drop on you. But here he is. After briefly acknowledging your... guest? Friend? He turns to you."Sorry for the interruption but this seemed like an opportune time to drop in. How do you like my gift?""What?""It took quite a bit of bribery to get the Picaroon Troupe to switch course and come here. I hope it was worth it.""It's super cool."You grin."I'm so glad!""And why did you bring me such a nice gift?""Oh. Straight to the point? Fuffuffuffuffu. I came to collect! You owe me quite a debt Cavalier! I'd like to discuss the details of you clearing it.">After such a nice gift how could I say no?>Piss off flamingo! I owe stuff only to one person and it's not you>Other?
>>5126192>Other?>I don't remember borrowing anything from you.Oh good. The tent is the birdcage isn't it.
>>5126192>Other?>You come to my house with a kickass party and then you got the balls to offer me potentially even more fun? You're now in my top five favorite people I've talked to this week.
>>5126197I mean maybe we blew up something he liked?Like with Reyleigh, remember?`>>5126198I'll second this tho, even if I'd like to second both of you.
>>5126192>>5126197I actually don't remember what he feels we owe him. Was it silver island. If so, he had no flag on the Island so... You can't just show up a year later and say that island you beat into shape was mine all along. Also we aren't in charge of that island and they are free to trade or not trade with anyone they want
>>5126200Insignificant details, the man brought us clowns! And a good bribe must be respected
>>5126201That's basically my whole mindset about it. He can call it debt all he likes but he basically gave a kid candy, a new game system with games included, pizza, and a puppy. At that point the kid would commit arson for you without hesitation.He also would have done it anyway for shits and giggles but that's beside the point.
>>5126200It's the shipment of some metal (I think it was ironically silver?) from Bandera or whatever the island was called before we renamed it to Silver island>>5126192Supporting >>5126198
>>5126204I'm okay with working with him as a thank you for the thoughtful gift, if his task is interesting enough, might even do it for free or a discount if it sounds fun enough. But not for some supposed debt,
>>5126192>I don't remember owing you shit, so start explaining.
Well that took a turnBut I'm not going to count the votes. Both win!>writing
"You come to my house? Bring a kickass party? And have the balls to threaten me with a good time? You're now in my top five favorite people I've talked to this week.""Fuffuffuffuffu. I'm glad to hear that!""But I don't remember borrowing anything from you."His laugh stops and his smile disappears."Really? Then perhaps I ought to explain it to you.""Be careful Silver! Donquixote Doflamingo is dangerous! I'm ashamed to say this but when someone asks who the strongest Shichibukai is the answer is either the man with hawk eyes or the Heavenly Demon.""Hmmm? Oh. You. Listen girl. I don't think either of us should be here. And while I usually don't leave loose ends this one time I'm willing to make you a deal. Stay out of my business and I'll stay out of yours. And no speaking of this to anyone."Sandersonia starts shivering in fear as the words of the warlord reach her. She's not acting like one of the subordinates of the Pirate Empress which speaks volumes of how dangerous this guy is."Now then, where were we? Oh yes. To clarify-"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqAusgWWhT4Doflamingo walks up to you with his arms spread wide open. Once he's right over you with his incredibly tall frame he reaches forward and grabs each of your cheeks with one hand and squishes them. You make a squeaking sound as he starts laughing."Fuffuffuffuffu. You have no idea what you did, do you? My sweet boy you managed to wound me in a way I never even dared to imagine. You hospitalized me for days! It was a pain I can't even describe. You must owe up to that!""What?""Fuffuffuffuffufuffuffuffuffufuffuffuffuffu! Just looking at you now hurts! Do you remember one year ago when you set the heavens ablaze? Well let me tell you what you did. You made me laugh so hard something ruptured inside me! I was bedridden for days! Fuffuffuffuffu! That day was already so good! The war of the best! With that old man Whitebeard and Blackbeard and everyone else making ways! That was the most fun I've had in a while. Then I go back home and I see what you did! It was the BEST day of my life! So basically what I'm saying is that you owe me a new pair of sides! Fuffuffuffuffu!""Kek! I'm glad you liked it!""W-Wait! You hate the Celestial Dragons?""Is that so surprising?""But you deal with them!""I did. Not really by choice mind you. And I cut all ties with the dragons a year ago. But enough about them. Let's talk about you my sweet little friend!""Okay!""I have the offer of a lifetime for you! And after you so rudely gave me a good time like that the least you can do is hear me out."Without waiting for an answer Doflamingo continues."I have this little event I'm invited to. A few of my associates are throwing a big banquet. And I'd like to take you as my +1. I'd introduce you to them. I think it'd be to your benefit to make some... friends. How about it?"
woulda been neat if those long arm folks from brook's misadventures tried showing him off around here, with no one realizing he's a strawhat.
i understand if we're kind of past the point of random island adventures, but i got this idea for one while playing with my legos. what about bionicle as a one of island. high tech robots in a mystical tribal setting?
>>5126277So wait, Doofy is bribing us with a clownparty to convince us to come to a party?Jesus christ the man sure as hell did his homework on us.
>>5126277 Oh boy, is silver going to kill more dragons?
>>5126277>I fucking love tea parties>i doubt this can beat big mom's parties, but i'll still go
>>5126288Anon please, I'm at work. I can only get so erect.
"Spider says I shouldn't party with strangers. Too many corpses.""How wise. But of course I wouldn't expect you to show up to a party without knowing who's attending. In our world it's important to keep track of grudges after all. I know, I work in the underworld. But this is sensitive information. I wouldn't want to reveal the name of my clients. So I need you to swear that you're not going to reveal this tiny little insignificant detail. Okay?""Yeah sure."He leans in so close you can feel his breath on your neck as he whispers into your ear."I want to introduce you to one of the Yonko. Hundred Beast Kaido!"Your eyes shift to the side to look at him. He's doing his best to contain his laughter but your expression is making it difficult for him. Is he in cahoots with one of the Yonko?"Aren't you one of the Royal Shichibukai?""Yes. So?""Kek!">Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!>No way Flamingo!>Other?
>>5126294>>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!
>>5126294>>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!Second verse same as the first, how could one possibly turn this down?
>>5126294>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!LET'S GOOOO BEST DAD
>>5126294>>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!cool
>>5126300That he is
>>5126294>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!>when is it?>where will it be?In that order.
>>5126294>Well threaten me with a good time! I'm in!>I bet he can't throw a better party than big mom, though! I really should be heading back over there sometime soon...
>>5126312>I bet he can't throw a better party than Big MomAnd I took that personallyt. Queen
Aaaaanyway I think I'm tapping out here.I'll write the continuation based on your voteI hope you enjoyed yourselvesHave a good night!
>>5126337Thanks for running Spooks, and top notch Doofy.
>>5126337Thanks for the run Spooks! Good night!
>silver is actually getting along with doffyman silver is one bad day from leading a literal pirate army into world HQ and burning the whole damn place down. I approve!
>>5127071Of course we're getting along with him, nobody with this many clowns could be be a bad person!That said, "bad" day? Much worse then that my man, we're one bored day from doing just that.I really didn't expect Spooks to pull out Doffy tho, but I'm glad he did. This whole thing is going to be a treat
"WHAT did you say?!""H-He took the children! Every last one of them!""And you just let him?! As the one in charge you were responsible for them! Whatever happens to them will be your fault!""My deepest apology vice-admiral! But what were we supposed to do? They destroyed our battleship, half of the chain of command, all the experimental weapons and that... THING that showed up! If we tried to stop them we would've died!""Sigh. I swear... Tashigi! Are you done yet?""Yes sir! Just finished with the books. All patients are accounted for thankfully. Aside some slight malnutrition they all appear to be in a stable condition.""Finally some good news. Have the men take them up to the ship. They need to be transported to the nearest G-Fort as soon as possible.""With due respect sir, the number of patients exceeds the standard capacity of most G-Forts. We may need to distribute them between several or take them directly to HQ.""What a pain. Men! Hop to it! We'll figure out how to proceed as we go along. And put these guys to work. That'll be good punishment instead of a court-martial.""You got it Smo-yan!""I told you to stop calling me that! Let's go Tashigi."The vice-admiral and his second in command walk to the area where the local marines said the Silvers were fighting. As they get closer and closer to the epicenter of the conflict the air gets harder and harder to breathe. The smell of ash and char permeates the air and it's thick with dust even a few days after the fact. Only a few brittle and dry twigs remain of the former forest. Out of curiosity Tashigi examines one of them but it breaks apart and crumbles at her touch."It's like an explosive went off.""Stop poking things. We don't know what they did to this place. Hey. Come here. What do you see?"Smoker stops at what appears to be a big lump of slag.Tashigi crouches down before the mass of metal and starts examining by tapping it with her sword."It's hard to tell but I believe this must've been the prototype Metal Marine that was worked on here. It's clearly wapometal even with all the impure elements in it. And only that's the only thing of that size that could've left this much waste."
"Hmmm. HQ is going to bust our balls for loosing a years worth of research. At least the metal can be salvaged, right?""It's... doubtful. Due to the special nature of the alloy mundane methods may not be suitable for extracting the impurities. Even if they were the metal is effectively ruined. It'd most likely cost more to salvage what little we can from this than buying twice as much pure metal.""Shit. That's a complete failure then. Hmmm? Something bothering you Tashigi?""No it's nothing vice-admiral. Just... these were meant to be the next big thing that would let us pacify all pirates. And they were destroyed so easily by a single crew. It's like we're fighting an uphill battle.""Hmph. That's how it's always been. We just got to keep doing our best.""Yes!""Now... do you see any signs of that giant weapon they were talking about?""Hmmmm. No. But maybe if we climbed that hill over there we could get a good vantage point.""Good idea."They walk over the ash covered hill in order to climb it but the moment they take the first step on it both of them freeze."S-Smoker sir-""What is it Tashigi?""Is this-""Yes.""And it's made out of-""Most likely... Look if you're gonna-""BLEEEERGH! S-Sorry.""Sigh. Don't apologize.""H-How did they destroy this thing?""Probably how they turned the entire forest into charcoal. Tashigi. Get yourself cleaned up, then tell the men to grab some shovels. Make sure to put the soldiers from the other unit to work as well. We're dumping this thing into the sea. Ain't no way I'm letting HQ learn about this!""Y-Yes sir!"
I meant to upload this one yesterdayMy apologies. Memes, alcohol and the big sad have eroded my brain over the years so it don't work so good now.Anyway I not only wanted to post this but make two announcements. I'll update the social links a little bit the coming second. Specifically the bounties.And now the bad stuff. I'm not gonna run on the weekend. Got an exam on Monday and Tuesday and at least I want to practice for them a little bit. But I may be able to run both Monday and Tuesday afternoon depending on how I feel

Why do I have the feeling that Outer Heaven is going to be attacked by Smoker and his merry bunch to "save the children!" while we are off cavorting with Doffy and Kaido?And good luck with the exams Spooks.
>>5128119>smoker attacks>does better than 99% of anyone because unlike virtually every chucklefuck out there he actually holds his justice in his heartHe still gettin his ass beat tho
>>5127936>smoker found the thingho shit.
>>5128148I mean Smoky is smart enough to figure out he can just walk in through the front door and nobody's gonna stop him
>>5128836Impossible, our defenses foiled so easily? Smoker is truly an adept and insidious foe. Who could have foreseen such a dangerous enemy?
>>5128840In fairness Smoyan does have one advantage over most other marines: the G5, cause lets be honest here half of his men are probably on a first name basis with at least one madame in Outer Heaven and the other half has probably caused enough trouble to meet either Diaz or Pascia in person.
>>5128836Hell he could just adopt the brats and we'd let him go with a slap on the back and possibly a party for good measure.
>>5128836>"Now hear me out for a second, Tashigi...">"Oh no.">"What if we walk through the front door... TALK to them... and ASK for the kids!">"You're a madman."
>>5129351>The Tenryubito don't want you to know but the kids in Outer Heaven are free>You can take them home>I have 52 kids
So who from Kaido’s faction should Silver unintentionally seduce if we run into them at the banquet? Ulti? Black Maria? Ginrummy? Solitaire? Or do we even hope that Yamato is there?
>>5130158Big women seem to gravitate to Silver, so it’ll likely be Black Maria who becomes entranced by him.
>>5130192>Big women seem to gravitate to SilverHmmmmm
>>5130158Ulti is for her brother!We should cuck Zoro
>>5130252Big women like short dudes. Unless the chick is retarded. Those "they have to be taller than me" 6'2" lanky scarecrow chicks are in for a long and lonely road. And before anyone says this is a cope I'm pushing six and a half feet so it is absolutely a cope because I want a big woman. It's an absolutely patrician fetish and any dude who isn't into climbing that mountain to reach the twin peaks is less of a man than a manlet.
I’m thinking it’s either gonna be Black Maria or Yamato. We already have the himedere with Shirahoshi, the tsundere with Sandersonia, and now we need to add either a sadodere or a tomboy into the mix. Me? I’m praying for the Hail Mary entry Yamato, since I think she would really like Silver, since he created a truly open island, he is a breaker of chains, and he is strong.
>>5130272She probably would. She would also probably get us killed cause I don't think Silver would take to well to "So yea, I chained down and beat the snot out of my daughter"Or his habit of trying to make people join his crew via torture and enslavement. All I'm saying is that there are a *lot* of opportunities for us to fuck up, pick a fight with Kaido and get pancaked. Just as there is the chance that we don't find any of those things and think he's a swell kind of guy.
>>5130266>pic relatedI am not good with burger metrics but I'm pretty sure I'm 6'2. And let me tell you I seethe, mald, cope and rage whenever I see a manlet with a tall amazonian gf. It's not fucking fair>>5130258Ignoring how Pay-tans dick belongs to Ulti, what do you think would happen if she even met Silver? It'd be like the demon cores two halves touching.Also>Orochis sloppy secondsnah
>>5130415Their child would be like a cross between Mr. Bean and Mike Tyson.
>>5130408Silver at the very least would break her manacles. Though you are probably right that silver might not like her very much because she’s focused on the past rather than the present.
Alright then what about the ladies of the Don Quixote pirates? Who will be taken in by Silver’s charms? Will it be Violet? Silver cucking Sanji once more? Will it be Baby 5? Donflamingo finally getting tired of murdering her fiancées and just marrying her off?
>>5134015What kind of jerk names their donkey "Hotae" anyway?
>>5134015Gyola :^)>>5134096You sir win the Silver Award of Approval
>>5134627>You sir win the Silver Award of Approval
A'ight. I got something for youGonna post two things soon
"Arara. So this is the place? I expected bigger. Oh well."A man walks into Outer Heaven with nothing but the clothes on his back and a duffel bag in his hand. He's been on the road for a while now and been meaning to check this place out. But he simply couldn't spare the time to do so up until now. He adjusts his round rimmed sunglasses and enters the place. It's a chaotic mess. On his way to the bar someone bumps him into 9 times and 8 of those happened because someone punched the delinquent into him. He ignores them and with laser focus heads for the bar. As he sits down on one of the stools a fat bearded guy and a skinny blonde smack some poor fool around before wiping the bar-table clean with him."Excuse me, sir. Owner! What does a fellow need to do to get a drink here?""Ptoe. Hey hotstuff!""Oh shit, I'm sorry ma'am. I didn't realize okama worked here.""Ya new here right? Ah I can always spot a virgin a mile away. You can find almost anything here. Except maybe a Tenryubito prostitute but I'm not even sure of that. Some skank claims to be from the holy land. Buncha shit if you ask me. Anyway ya gotta tell me whatchu want and that's it.""Arara. How about paying?""Eh you're free to try and run. Could use a new washboy right about now. So what'll it be handsome?""Do you serve Jerez?""Oh and here I thought you're a bum. But you're in luck pal! Just got a shipment recently. Should still have some. How much?""The bottle is fine.""Here.""Much appreciated."The man pays the price and pops open the bottle before taking a swig."Hmmmmm. Your mug looks familiar. Do I know you from somewhere?""Not unless you've been to Paradise recently. Only started messing around in the New World not too long ago.""Must be just my imagination then.""Hey. Do you mind if I ask you some questions?""Eh. The barfight should finish in about half an hour. I can talk until then.""What happened? And are these common?""I'unno. Someone called someones mother a marinefucker and they took it personally. Happens all the time. Things escalate, stuff gets broken. Don't mind as long as they pay."
"Sounds like quite the chaotic place.""We got a sayin' here. Peace is just the break between two brawls.""That's quite a bleak view of the world isn't it?""Nah. Look at 'em. They punch each others teeth out in one hour and the next they are drinking together again. And the fighting never goes too far so no grudges are made. So this is a good way for everyone to blow off some steam.""It's hard to believe no one ever seriously gets hurt in a fight between pirates.""Well they can't. Them's the rules.""Isn't this place supposed to be famous for having no rules.""Well there is one. Do not piss off the boss. Simple, gets the point across. Those that know the place know what to do and not do to not piss him off. And they help the newbies "learn" them through some harsh lessons.""Sounds more like a tyranny to me.""The thing about rules is, there are good ones and bad ones. The good ones everyone can agree on. Don't be a dick, don't pointlessly kill people, pay your debts, that sorta stuff. The bad ones are made by dickheads sitting on the top. People that don't care what goes on below and just want to make things better for themselves at your expense. They steal your money and call it taxes, steal your rights and call it law. Try to do something and call you a criminal. The boss does not care about any of that stuff. He just wants you to behave but otherwise you can do whatever you want. You act out, he gets the belt. An animal can get that.""Hmmm. Sounds like a regular government but with extra steps.""A'ight smart guy. Then tell me. Which country has a government where if you disagree with the guy in charge he'll tell you to just kill him and take over?""...""See?""Well. I'm still not sure I get it. Place is a bit too hectic for my liking. But I can tell you one thing, I did not expect I'd come in here and end up debating politics. So at the very least it did manage to surprise me.""Well whatever floats your boat pal. Can I get ya anything else?""Nah, thank you. I think I'll just take this bottle and finish it elsewhere. Have a good day now!""Yeah yeah. Bye."As the man walks back out to where he parked his bike he turns around and gives the place one last look before smirking."Arara. What a dubious little creature, that Silver."
a revelation lead me to writing this onenow for the next
>>5134894damn, i wish ice boy would hang out a little more. he seems pretty chill.
>>5134894>"Hmmm. Sounds like a regular government but with extra steps."It's less steps actually
"Is this seat taken?"Sandersonia asks."It's a free island. Do as you please."Marcella shrugs."Thank you."She meekly sits down with the other ladies and begins eating her meal. A spoonful isn't much but that's enough to make her retch."A-Are you sure this is edible?"The other girls continue to eat without batting an eye."It's an acquired taste."Ann explains as she takes another bite."But since this is your first time I do recommend you get a pitcher or two of water in your room.""W-Why?""You may get dehydrated."She says as Soni's stomach gurgles."But aren't you a serpent? How are you not immune to poison?""That's my sister. I'm an anaconda. They constrict their prey. Not venomous.""Ah. A pity. Well good luck!""O-On the upside it's very good for your figure! You'll shed a lot of weight!"Lyda speaks with enthusiasm as the big amazon shudders.Staring down at the goopy mess on her plate Sandersonia opts to take it easy with the food from now on."May I ask you something? If it's not too much of a problem. Why are you all women? And no, not like that. I mean I assumed that this crew would have mostly men in it. But it's about an even split."Hagetaka puts down her pipe and blows a puff of smoke in the air."The answer is simple. We may have our reasons to be here. But we all follow him because he's worth following.""Heh. If it weren't for that gremlin I'd still be in the mafia, the holy skank would still wear a chastity belt, she would be in a pit of corpses and cowtits would be chasing squirrels or something. He makes life more interesting that's for sure. And you have better odds of realizing your dream with him than without him. So there's that. But let me ask you something in turn. Cool it princess. Nobody wants to snatch up your drooling little prince charming!""Wait. Y-You're not?""What Miss Marcella is saying is that it doesn't work that way. Our captain is a bit different. You'll see once you've been here a while and the pink mist lifts."The women of the Silver pirates continue their chatter as they finish their meal which makes Sandersonia feel a bit left out. Especially since she's even having trouble with eating her food while for everyone else it goes down smooth as butter. She does not realize that their palates adjusted to the intense flavor of Omukades cooking and thus they couldn't eat half of what she could without overwhelming amounts of seasoning. Defeated and with her tongue begging for mercy she resigns herself to only finishing her drink this time. It's much easier to stomach than anything else she tried. Unfortunately the slightly sweet taste obscures something that's actually pretty hard hitting. Normally it wouldn't be an issue but on a mostly empty stomach it is. The tongue that she keeps sticking out of her mouth begins to sway from left to right alongside her entire body as a deep blush appears on her cheeks. Her inebriation does not escape the notice of the others.
"It appears that someone can't handle their mead.""Shaddap!"She slams down her tankard and snaps at Hagetaka."Hic-uuuugh. I may not eat or drink like you! And I may not be as pretty either! But I'm a Kuja from Amazon Lily! I'm-I'm gonna fight! And I'm gonna beat you all!"With her final declaration her head slams into the table and a bubble appears from her nose as she starts snoring."P-Poor girl.""Her determination is admirable. Shall we give her a hand?""Nah! I don't do assisted suicides. She wants to fuck herself up, let her. But I kinda pity her so... do we give her one?""Then we are in agreement! She gets one. Oh Silver dear!"WOOSH"Yes?""She's all tuckered out. Be a good boy and take her to her room.""Kay! Yosho! Whoa. Heavy."Silver carries the large woman back to where she was accommodated. Sandersonia had no idea how she got back in bed or who tucked her in. And thanks to her pounding headache she couldn't really think about it."Argh. My head...""Morning!""EEP! S-Silver? What are you doing here?""You looked sick so I stayed and watched. Are you okay?""Y-Yeah I am. Thank you!""I'm glad! Anyway here's a bucket some water and medicine. If you need anything else just shout and I'll come over. See ya!""W-Wait!""Hmmm?""Could you... stay a while? I think I'm feeling sick.""Yeah. Sure!"
That should be itNext session will be on Tuesday around the usual time if everything works outSee y'all then
>>5134894good stuff, not surprised that he could keep his cool even in outer heaven>>5134913>"Could you... stay a while? I think I'm feeling sick."aww, the anaconda's feeling a little clingy
Todays session must be postponed. Sorry.I think I caught a cold. If I feel better I'll try running tomorrow
>>5137720no problem, take it easy
>>5137720Enjoy your time off!
After much careful consideration you decide you like what the warlord is saying to you."Well how could I refuse such an offer?"You say with a smile and Doflamingo returns one in kind."Excellent!""But I wanna know when it is and where.""I can answer one of those. The event is scheduled to happen in three weeks. Which is the reason why I came this early. I wanted to make sure you could make a slot for it in your schedule fuffuffuffu!""And the place?""Well it's not something He would be too happy about if I revealed it. The man likes his privacy. And unfortunately this also means you can't bring anyone else. Me taking you will already stretch things pretty far.""Got it! So how will we do this? You gonna come or will they come to pick us up?""Neither. We'll have to do things manually. Can you fly?""Yup.""Excellent! I'll come to pick you up. Then we make our way there "on foot". No ships involved.""Hmmmm. Kinda bummed that my crew can't come but I get it. I just hope it'll be worth it. And that it'll be better than Mamas party.""Ah yes, I heard that you were invited to that Hag for some reason. I must admit not a lot can surprise me but that did. Anyway you better not speak of her in front of Kaido when we get there. As you can imagine they don't exactly get along that well. Not when the other is one of the few reasons why they couldn't take over the world yet."Doflamingo then pulls up his sleeve to look at his watch."But if you'll excuse me I think I'll take my leave now. I'm quite a busy man. Just remember our agreement. Three weeks from today. Oh and don't be shy. Make sure you enjoy what the Troupe has to offer. They'll be here for about a day more."Without any other words the warlord takes his leave and soon enough you can't even pick him up with your ears. The snake lady next to you nearly falls to her knees as soon as he's out of the picture."I hate that man. I've only ever seen him a few times but he always unnerves me."But with that out of the way you can return to your own business.>Go back to enjoying the circus>See if you can wake up the unconscious clown>Other?
So I'm still a bit sick. Meaning this isn't going to be a proper runBut I can do one or two updates per day for the next couple of days.Hopefully that'll allow me to get things movingThis is only temporary though
>>5139592>See if you can wake up the unconscious clownLet's not forget our new crew member>>5139596Get better boss, don't overexert yourself
>>5139592>See if you can wake up the unconscious clownClussy come to me.
>>5139592>See if you can wake up the unconscious clownThere is something planned here, I can just feel it.>>5139596And take care of yourself Spooks, lots of drinking. Hell, even water might do the trick.
>>5139592>Go back to enjoying the circus
>>5139592>>Go back to enjoying the circusBut drag the clown with us, he'll wake up when he's ready.
>>5139592>See if you can wake up the unconscious clown>>5139600This is juvia from fairy tail, but someone turned her into a clownnot that i disapprove
>>5139592>See if you can wake up the unconscious clownAnyone who can play a one man band deserves a spot on our crew.
>>5139642I'm more of a Bonbon man meself
Clown time>writingSorry if this takes a while>>5139642Not sure who that is but I don't see it
>>5139649It's one of her other outfits.
>>5139655Honestly this is pretty much a downgrade from the first one and you can only see her hat in that
>>5139661It's been a lot of years since i watched fairy tail, but IIRC the short haired version was when she first appeared as an antagonist.
"So Silver, do you want to go back to the circus?""Nah. I got something else on my mind."You look down at the clown that's been just laying there all this time."Introducing myself to my new crew.""Wait you were serious? But wasn't it fun when-""I had all the fun I wanted. That's why I do everything at 110%! I get all the fun out of something all at once so I can move on to other stuff and have fun that way."Sandersonia is left speechless as you pick the clown up from the ground, have it sit upright and start shaking it."Wake up! Come on wake up! Snaky! Please get some water!""You want to splash him in the face? I imagine he won't be too happy when his makeup gets ruined.""What?""His makeup. It'll get ruined."You collapse onto the ground and get depressed."My life is a lie..."But as you're having your mental breakdown after such a deeply disturbing revelation and as Sandersonia is trying to backpedal quickly you hear some noises coming from the unconscious clown. Looks like all the noise you've been making finally managed to wake it up."Uuuuugh. Where am I?""Oooooh!"You spring up and run over the clown to leer at it."Hi!""EEEEEK!"Your toothy grin and your eyeball being less than an inch away from its deeply shocks the tiny creature."G-Get away!""Huh? That's a girl voice!"The clown, who's apparently a girl begins flailing to try and get you away but you grab her arm with one hand and reach forward with the other.HONK HONK"S-SILVER!""Huh. You ARE a girl! Weird. Usually I don't fall for stuff like that.""AH! SOMEONE! HELP! I'M BEING ASSAULTED!"Upon hearing the cries of the clowngirl the ringmaster quickly comes over to see what's happening and he tries to assert himself."Erm most esteemed host. Would you kindly get off my talent? You are obviously scaring her!""Oh. Sorry. I'm off!""Thank you. Now. Would someone please explain to me what is the meaning of this?""I wanna recruit your clown into my pirate crew.""Ah well that explains-WHAT?!""Yeah.""And you agreed?"The manager looks at the clown who starts shaking her head and crosses her arms in front of her."N-No sir! I did not! He just jumped me and scared me to death! I don't even know who this man is!""Ah. My mistake. My name is Silver! And yours?""Pepe la Piera?""That is a fake name but I like it!""Wait really?""Anyway now that we were properly introduced come and join my pirate crew! I saw how you balanced yourself on the ball and how you could play a whole bunch of instruments! I need a musician and you are perfect!"
>>5139710WE TOLD THE BOY HE WAS GONNA GET A CLOWNWE DO NOT FORGET OUR PROMISES
>>5139710Remember when Silver used to be scared of makeup? I remember
>>5139732I actually don't, when was that again?Cause if I've forgotten something I feel downright silly.That said: the jury is still out on if clowns are wearing makeup or not.
>>5139736Back in gang town, when he met the okama in the very first thread.
>>5139752Yes yes, that lovely gentleman who made our suit. And fangirled out when we grabbed our hat. Good point and thank you.
"I say I say, Monsieur Silver! It is rather dirty trying to poach my talents right in front of me! Pepe may be the freshest addition to our Troupe, as she was with us for only a week or so but she is still part of our family! I simply can not abide by you trying to kidnap her like that!""Okay okay, I get it. How much?"Not a muscle moves on the ringmasters face as he takes off his glove and smacks you across the face with it."I apologize sir. Normally I abhor doing this but you forced my hand. My answer is no! And the fact that you think bribery is going to sway me is beyond insulting! Now I must ask you to leave her alone or face the consequences!""But-""She said no!""But I promised Will I'd get him a clown!""Then I wish you luck finding one elsewhere!"You start protesting quite heavily when Jaws shows up with cotton candy in his hands."Sigh. What's all that racket? Silver, what did you do?"Trying to explain to him that you want to recruit a clown Murray bonks you on the head and knocks you out instantly."Urgh. Sorry about that sir. He gets like that sometimes.""Thank you for the help. But will you be okay? Isn't he your captain?""Yes on both accounts. But we learned how to handle it. I apologize for his behavior.""You don't need to my good man. Now if you'll excuse me I got to go. Come on Pepe."The clown bites her fingernails and speaks up."But Maestro! Isn't he a very dangerous pirate? Shouldn't we-""What? Bow down before him? No my dear. We will not. If he insists on making a scene we'll give him one.""But-""But what? He was harassing you mere moments ago."As you hear a lot of arguing going back and forth you get back up."Ow. Not cool Jaws. Not cool.""Nope. But I had to find a way to cool you down.""Hey. Clowns! Sorry about that. I was a bit of a dingus. How about we start again?""There is nothing to start again. You wanted something from me. I said no. Clear and simple.""Yeah but-">How can I convince you to let her join me?>What if she says yes?>Other?
>>5139778>What if she says yes?
>>5139778>>What if she says yes?We want her not his permission
>>5139778>What if she says yes?The only person we ever kidnapped was the (adopted) mother of our son, and she didn't even fight it.
>>5139778>What if she says yes?>She's free to decide, right?>You're not keeping slaves, are you?
>>5139808That wasn't kidnapping, we were just speed speedrunning friendship using exploits.
>>5139808>forgetting all about Daunty. Because we did, and I absolutely loved the scene where we realized exactly what we had done
>>5139843I mean she didn't really gain sentience until after we stole her, so that doesn't count.
>>5139851That's not how kaubtaurteramenan-things work mate.She was always sentient, always self aware. It's simply that none of the marines gave half a shit and treated her like a boat unlike Silver who has some real troubles differentiating between living and unliving things.
"-what if she says yes? She's free to leave, right? You aren't dealing in slavery, right?""Of course not! If Pepe so wishes she can leave any time! But as she made it abundantly clear she has no interest in joining your little group.""Erm Maestro. A moment?"She pulls the man aside and whispers something in his ear. The man sighs and gives her a queer gesture with a little bow and gives her some privacy but remains within sight."I asked him to give us some space. So erm. What is this? What do you want?""I told you. I want you to join me!""That easy huh? Erm why exactly? I have no skills that'd be useful for a pirate. Hell I'd probably be a detriment to you on your ship.""Hmmmmmm. Is that so? You balance good. And you can play a lot of instruments! That's very cool! But I guess... Do you have any skills other than that? Like anything?""Nope. Can't really sail. Don't know how to fight. I'm scared by violence. The only thing other than music that I can do is magic. And even then I can only do a few simple card tricks."She pulls out a deck of cards from somewhere and shuffles them in a nifty way."See? This is it.""WHOOOOOOAAAAH! YOU GOTTA JOIN US NOW!"Murray slaps his own forehead."I swear!""Well... I mean if you're interested. But what do I get out of this deal?""What do you mean? You become our friend, you get a cool ship, a cool place to stay at, a whole bunch of fun memories and an equal share of the loot!"She looks around the place, sizing it up then she shrugs."I'm not sure what this is about but I'm willing to accept on one condition.""NAME IT!""That I get to leave if I feel like it. Don't feel like committing to anything.""Sure! But I promise you won't leave!"As you shake her hand Murray sighs and throws his cotton candy in the trash."I'm going to look for the others and tell them what you did. Don't want any confusion. But better get ready because Marcella is going to be angry.""Oh no."
and that's it for nowwe'll see how much better I fare tomorrow
>>5139895>Smoll>dresses funny>easily scared>does magicRight, we have found a Lyda!And we love our Lyda!>>5139897Take care, and thanks for putting in the effort.
>>5139897Thanks for the run, Spooks! Very cute>Tfw you made Silver like magic all for this moment
>>5139895>She pulls out a deck of cards from somewhere and shuffles them in a nifty way.WE ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF A LEGEND
>walk away from the quest for a little while>come back>silver has shanghai'd a smol clown girl into his pirate groupOf course he did.
>>5140402I am saying this now. Mercella is going to make a "juggling his balls" joke and seethe about another girl in the mix.
>>5139926Do I have to remind you that Silver liking magic is a meme that was not made by me? I simply added it to her repertoire to make her more enticing>>5140473>Juggling balls jokeYes. And many more>seethe about another girlNo. Claun is actually the flattest. She will be relentlessly mocked instead
>>5140473I don't think she's strong enough to lift Silvers oversizen brass balls. Would be a good workout tho.
After coming to an agreement Pepe the clown goes back to break the news to the ringmaster. Suffice to say he is none too pleased by this development, since according to him clown girl begged him quite a bit so she could join the troupe as it was a big dream of hers. When asked why she'd abandon the thing she wished for so dearly her answer was quick and simple."Money."Though angry the ringmaster respects her decision."Very well. If that is what you wish. I'll just find a one man band elsewhere. But I expect you to pack your stuff come the end of the day.""Of course Maestro. And thank you."She goes and packs her bag which is surprisingly light."Is that everything?""Yes. A few spare clown outfits, a rubber chicken and not much else.""Okay. I'll show you where you can put your stuff. Hey Snaky! If Jaws comes tell him I'm with Daunty."You lead your new acquisition through the city to show off some of the more necessary faculties like the cantine and the infirmary before taking her to the Dauntless."Here! Allow me to introduce you to someone very special! Meet the Dauntless Spirit! You can call her Dauntless. But only I can call her Daunty!""Why are you talking about a ship like it's a person?""GAAAAAAASP!"You turn to your ship and give a big hug to the side of her hull."I'm sorry Daunty she didn't mean it like that! She's big dumb. You! Clown! Apologize! NOW!""I'm... sorry?""Good. Now remember Daunty is very special. She is not just our home but our friend. She gets an equal share of the loot and everything. We maintain and clean her by hand and nobody else is allowed to touch her. You'll also have to learn how she likes being treated. If you don't clean her the right way she'll be angry. Other than that you'll have to learn how to use our stuff as it's all special. And you're going to eat poison from now on. I'll ask Toxin to keep it mild for you at the start but it will still mess up your tummy. Any questions?""Erm-""OY!""Uh-oh. They are here.""SILVER!"Marcella rushes up to you and puts you into a headlock before giving you a noogie."What did you do again?! Can we seriously not look away for five minutes without you recruiting someone?! YOU IDIOT! Oh what the shit? I thought Murray was joking when he said you got a clown! Hi. I'm Marcella. Welcome to hell.""Hi?""And this one's a girl too?! You know for a fucking mushroom you are quite a horndog! Do I need to crush your balls to teach you a lesson? Or have the clown juggle with them?!""OWOWOW! LET GO!"After a few minutes of abuse you manage to push Hook away but by that time the others have climbed on board.>Time to introduce everyone to the clown!>Time for the clown to show what she's made of>Time to see how good the clown is in actual combat>Other?
>>5141086>Time to introduce everyone to the clown!
>>5141086>>Time for the clown to show what she's made of"Pepe isn't just any ordinary clown!"and then to Pepe:"Do it."they'll understand once they see the shuffle
>>5141100yeah definitely this
Showing off her clowny abilities wins>writing
>>5141086>Pepe the clownRare Pepe acquired always knew Silver was an alt-right ancap troll
"No offense captain but seriously? A clown?""Yes Angel!""HOW CAN YOU GUYS NOT BE EXCITED?! WE GOT A CLOWN!""See? Bullseye gets it. Okay Clown. Do the thing.""I have a name you know?"Gu just shrugs."We all do. Doesn't mean anything to him. You'll get used to it."After sighing Piera steps up and shows her left hand for everyone to see with her palm facing towards herself. Then with the other hand she grabs her index finger and pulls off the tip of her finger. Naturally you and Will loose your minds, even more so when she reattaches it like nothing happened. The others seem to be less amazed by this obvious display of sorcery."YES! MORE! SHOW US MORE!"Grabbing three balls she starts juggling them around with her tongue sticking out. She barely dropped them a few times in the couple of minutes that she's been juggling. Needless to say you are quite proud of this talent that you acquired."Erm not to be a party pooper but aside tricks what can you do Miss Clown?""It's Pepe. And well I can balance on a ball and play music on fifteen different instruments.""And in combat?""What don't you get Spider? She can play songs for us and improve our morale! Think about it! How cool will it be when we have our own background music while we fight?! Come on Clown! Show them!""I can't.""Well why not?""The instruments weren't mine. They belong to the circus.""Oh. One minute."You make a mad dash to the market and buy off every single musical instruments you can find. Which is not a lot considering. Apparently there aren't many people interested in learning music within Outer Heaven. But you did find a cool beggar with an accordion that you manage to buy off him at the price of a small mansion."Here! For you! I'll order some more later!""Oh. Thanks. I guess this works. Got any requests?""Oh oh! Play Bink's Sake!""I don't know that one."Your unending grin turns into a sour frown. The horrible news is already making you question your decision."Ohhhhhhhh. That I hate. No matter! I'll sing and you'll learn it in no time!"As soon as you start your singing however she claps her ears shut and shudders."I'd rather not. How about Ocean Guide?""Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. FINE!"She sings a rather sad song, unbecoming of a clown. But she's a good enough singer and has a good enough voice that you don't care.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyPjQmgFv4QTrue to your word you put up a bounty for musical instruments and the many suppliers of the island got to work. At the same time Greki and the others emptied out one of the old storerooms on the Dauntless for Pepe to move in. The good little clown didn't do much but she dutifully kept playing her music. Got to say, even though she's a big weenie due to not knowing how to play Bink's Sake it's great to have a clown around finally, one dutiful enough to always be in makeup. Will is especially in love with her, it's like he's a little kid again. Well, littler kid. She does little in terms of contributing to the everyday chores you must perform and she socializes very little with the crew. The others try to educate her on the rules of the crew and your culture but progress is slow. But she'll learn sooner or later. This is just a little setback due to not experiencing an adventure with you.But as you procure more and more instruments for her to practice with and party on the Dauntless like never before time slowly passes. Time flies when one is having fun after all. And the three weeks pass. And the fated day with the Warlords return arrives. Donquixote Doflamingo shows up right at your doorstep with a big grin on his face."Hi there!""Yo!""I hope you remembered our little deal.""Of course I did. When do we leave?""Now.""Should I bring anything? A gift maybe?""That won't be necessary.""Alright. But can you give me a minute? I wanna say bye to my crew first.""Hurry up. Wouldn't want to keep our host waiting!"You give him a thumbs up and run around the island telling everyone you're going to go with Doffy for a little while. Rather quickly you go over each of them until only Pepe is left. You have to search for her a little bit until you manage to locate her in some random corner of the island muttering something."Yes. Got it-""Hey Clown!""Oh. Captain Silver."She twirls around and gives you a quick bow."How can I help you?""Who were you talking to?""Oh. That? Just rehearsing some jokes.""Ah. I thought you also talk to yourself and I'm not alone anymore. Bummer. Anyway I just wanna say that the Flamingo guy is here and I'm leaving.""Donquixote Doflamingo? Where are you going with that man?""Can't say. He said it's very secret.""Very well. I won't pry. Do you have any orders for me while you're gone?""Yeah! Just take it easy. Hang out with the others a bit. Make some pies with Toxin! Play with Will. They are fun. And you haven't done much other than working.""I'll try. But Captain-""Yes?""Can I ask a favor from you?""Who do you want dead?""Not like that. Could I get a map of the island? I keep getting lost. As you can see.""You're lost?""Y-Yeah.">Yeah. Tiny has a lot of blueprints>Hmmmm. No. Ask someone to be your buddy and guide you.>Other?
>>5141207This bitch is sus.>Give her a shitty map and tell the crew to keep an eye on her, you suspect she might be up to somethingTime for silver to learn that some clowns are evil...
>>5141207>Hmmmm. No. Ask someone to be your buddy and guide you. No time, we have a cloud to catch!Also god damn it, first you sing a marine song and now you're sneaking off and definitely not mumbling into a den-den-sneak, after just having joined the troupe, and now asking for a map. I hope I'm wrong Pepe, because you will break a poor souls heart if I'm not
>>5141207>Hmmmm. No. Ask someone to be your buddy and guide you.We're in charge and we have people for that. Honestly you'd think she'd know that by now.
>>5141207>>Hmmmm. No. Ask someone to be your buddy and guide you.>asking silver for a map>the guy who will literally barge into anyone's home, at any time, simply because he had the urge to check for something he imagines might be insideYa boy don't know about any maps of his island cause he don't need em.
Oh come on man. You really gonna make this poor clownie girl cry?Very well...>writing
>>5141248It's not healthy for a growing clown to be alone like that, socializing is important! And if she needs a little push to interact with the crew then we shall provideWe know these things, after all: Silver is a father
"Hmmmmm. No. I don't think I can do that.""Why not?""I never used a map before. I don't even know where stuff is on the island half the time. So if I have to go somewhere I don't know I just start going in one direction until I find it or hit a wall.""That... sounds incredibly foolish and unnecessary.""No it's fun! You get to go places you never knew existed and have all the fun! And sooner or later you'll get where you want to go anyway! But I know! You haven't hanged out much with the others. I know it's all very new but this can't stand! Ask one of them to be your buddy. I'm sure they'll happily show you around. You are crew now after all and they'd love to get to know you! Especially Bullseye."She lets out a disappointed sigh and her shoulders drop."I'll think about it.""Good! Anyway I'll be going now. Sorry we couldn't hang out too much. But I promise once I'm back we can have some fun. Fun that's not just you playing songs. Oh I know! You could tell me more about yourself. Like your dream! You haven't told me yet.""My... dream?""Yeah. Your old boss said it was your dream to work with them. But I guess that was not it since you quit. What's your dream? I'll help you make it real!""SILVER!"You hear a shout coming from the other side of the island."Whoops. Got to go! But we'll talk when I get back! I promise! COMING!"After saying farewell to your last crewmate you rush back to Doflamingo and the two of you waste no time taking off to wherever you are supposed to go. You've been going at top speed for a couple of hours when you start talking to the Warlord, who by the way has quite an astonishing way of moving about. You see he shoots these threads out of his hands and attaches them to clouds in the sky and uses them to swing around like a monkey. It gives a pretty good illusion of flight."Is it far?""No. We should see the island soon. But we may have to slow down. These waters are quite treacherous.""Cool ability. I haven't seen one like that yet.""Fuffuffu. Why thank you for the praise! I ate the Ito Ito no Mi, making me a string man. It's a paramecia that lets me produce string.""I didn't think string can do that.""Not many do. But remember, a fruits power is limited only by the users imagination. And you are also quite interesting for a zoan.""Thanks! So since we are almost there can you tell me where we are going?""Of course. It's a somewhat notorious little nation called Wano. There are many superstitions about the place. But the one that is actually true is that it's a nigh impregnable natural fortress. The island has only two entrances, one manmade and one natural. The former can only be opened from the inside, the latter is a waterfall atop which the island sits. And it's impossible for any large force to get through either. That's why the place could remain independent for most of its life. Not even the World Government could force it into submission without its fleets."
"And Kaido lives there?""Correct. He was invited into the country over 20 years ago by its leader, a shogun named Orochi. The country itself is a silly place, barely worth mentioning. Its natural resources and location are the only thing that's important about them. Having a fortress like that is quite handy.""I'll say. So we go in from the front?""No. The back. Locked or not, it matters not for those with the gift of flight. It's still heavily guarded but they should recognize me and let us in without any trouble."You keep flying for about an hour more before you spot the island and he was not kidding, it is quite high up. But it's no biggie for you. True to his words Kaidos men let you pass and they even greet you when you land."Welcome sir, welcome! We already notified Queen of your arrival.""Whoah. A queen?""No."Doffy frowns as the door swings open and a rather robust man shows up."Jooookeeeeer! My man! It's so good to see you! How have you been? And more importantly what brings you here?""Hello Queen. I'm invited am I not?""Well duh. But you usually don't bother to show up. And who's the boy with you? You do know your crew aren't allowed, right?""He's not in my crew Queen. I brought him to meet Kaido as a potential asset. I hope you don't have a problem with that.""Hmmmmmm. Muhahahahhaha! Of course not! Why would I have beef with you Joker my boy? Come on in!"The fat man invites you in and starts escorting you through several halls alongside his subordinates, all of whom appear to wear the same kind of gear with pants, bondage straps, capes and fake horns on their heads."Whew. Cool uniforms!""Thank you boyo! I designed them myself for maximum funk! There is much misery in this world, doesn't mean we should have it in our gang though!""Kekeke!""Awriiiight! We're here! You guys stay a bit, I'll go ahead and announce you. Gotta enter in STYLE!"The fat man goes in and after a minute or two you hear his amplified voice echo through the halls."GOOOD EVENIIING ONIGASHIMAAAA! Are you scumbags having fun? Well hold your booze for just a second because we got a surprise guest for today! Please stand up and welcome the jolliest man of the Grand Line, the King of the Underworld, the man with the abs you can grate cheese on, the Heavenly Demon himself! DONQUIXOTE DOFLAMINGO!""I hate it when he does this. That man doesn't know the meaning of subtlety. Come on. Let's go."Nodding you follow Doffy through the door and into an open area. The smell of food and booze hits your nose almost immediately and the sound of music and singing assaults your ear. Looks like the Beast Pirates know how to party. But you're not here for that unfortunately. No, it is the GIANT of a man sitting on a pillow, surrounded by men and women of all kind that interests you. He's being served a drink by one of the maidens when he sees you. He doesn't bother stopping and just chugs his drink."Oh... Joker."The Strongest Creature: Kaido
And that is it for todays loadGood night
>>5141320Thanks for the run Spooks, hope you're feeling better
>>5141320You're a horrible tease Spooks, but it was a good point to cut it. Thanks for running, take care and get better
>>5141320Rest well, thanks for the run!
I decided to cobble something togetherThis is not interactive so just enjoy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbeqTUgR3aM"Have you guys seen Pepe? Can't find her anywhere."Will rushes in the canteen as the others are eating."Nope. She hasn't come to eat yet.""Hmmmmm. Okay, thanks Gu! I'll look elsewhere.""Hey kid! Catch! Make sure to deliver this to her. If the early bird misses the worm it goes hungry.""What?""Breakfast is the most important meal of the day...""AH! Gotcha!" Running around the place William eventually resorts to using his sixth sense but even with that finding his crewmate proves difficult. Eventually he detects the presence of the clown within the bowels of the Dauntless. He pops up in her window and starts knocking on it to be let in. The musician looks up at the tapping sound and frowns. She gets up from her table and opens the front door which Will refuses to enter. Instead he picks open the window from the outside and crawls in through there."Hi!""Look, I don't have time for you. What do you want?""I brought we could hang. And I brought breakfast."Piera found her stomach tying into a knot at the mention of food and a groan slips out her mouth."Was that your tummy?""N-No! That's none of your business! Now out!""Ah. The old rumbly tummy. Hold on. Got something for that."Will runs out and brings back a glass full of muddled water."What did you put in this?""It's a little something mom used to give me when we first joined. Helps with your tummy. Omukades cooking messes up everyone at first.""I noticed. It's inhuman. That's why I refuse to eat anything made by him.""So you don't eat then?""Only when I can buy something at a vendor. And I only drink here.""Oh. That doesn't help. There's cyanide in the water. And before you even ask, yes the soft drinks too. Seen Gu injecting them with a needle. You can't escape it. It's best to just get it over with. After that it's going to be fine. Trust me!"
Will wiggles the glass in front of Pepe a bit until the clown finally gives in and takes the glass from him and drinks it. Much to her relief the growling her stomach made subsides and a hunger takes its place. Thankfully Will also brought sandwiches. The two of them end up sharing a breakfast with each other in her room. As he eats Wills attention turns to her worktable where he sees a lot of papers stacked up."What's that? You working on something?""That's nothing. Just working on my jokes.""Can I see?""No.""Awww.""Hon hon hon! It wouldn't be a very good joke if you knew the punchline, right?""I guess you're right.""Phew. That hit the spot. Thanks. I haven't eaten properly in a while. Alright, what do you want?""Oh you wound me! Can't I just come over to help a crew member in need?""Did you?""Nnnnno. But that's beside the point! You've been working all this time making music for us. I think it's time for you to have some fun for a change. How about it? Wanna go out with me?""Hon hon hon. Look, you're almost cute but a bit too young for that don't you think?""Heh! Good think then that Silver says there is no age restriction on fun! Look, you're one of the coolest people I've met. Including the others. Just let me make your day. It'd be a pleasure."Sighing Pepe finishes her sandwich, puts her papers away and puts her hands on her hips."Alright. I'll bite. Where do you want to go?""YES! Okay! Have you been to the amusement park yet?""The what?!""Hah! Knew it! Dear Clown, I'm about to give you the best day of your life!"
That was nice, looking forward to learning more about the clown.
I'm still waiting to see what happens when Silver learns that the guy named Caesar Clown isn't a goddamn clown.
>>5142397>>5142399Oh that's nice and wholesome>Silver says there is no age restriction on fun!And considers Silver's idea of "fun" that should scare the hell out of anyone infected with that lousy sanity.>>5143269Murder. Murder would happen, Silver would not abide such an imposter insulting the proud name of Clown
>>5143269I mean, he looks like a clown and acts like a clown. Silver just has to force him to accept who he is.
>>5143294>It will put on the clown outfit or it will get the hose again
>>5143269There is going to be violence.
So. Here's a little update on the situationI'm feeling better no. Really shocked that it passed over in just a few days but I won't complain about itTomorrow morning I got my last exam to do and that will leave the afternoon free for me to do whatever I wantSo that's the plan. Tomorrow 15:00 GMT. Proper Long Session
"Oh... Joker."There he stands. The thing stated to be the strongest living being in the world. Monster even among the four emperors."Joker..."To sum up his life he had been defeated seven times as a pirate."Joker..."And was captured by the navy or his enemies 18 times."Joker..."He underwent torture repeatedly and had been living as a criminal."Joker, Joker, Joker..."It bears repeating. He was captured 18 times. Sentenced to death 40 times. When he was hanged the chain broke, when he was sentenced to a guillotine the blade shattered, when he was sentenced to impalement the spears shattered. Consequently, he sank nine giant prison ships meant for him. No one can kill him. Not even himself. As such he took up the hobby of repeatedly committing suicide."HIC!""Oh no.""What's wrong Flamingo?""He's already drunk! And by the looks of it he's well past being a happy drunk.""Siiiigh. It's so good that you could make it. Hic. I'm sorry. It must be a real pain that you can't come here due to your position. I'm-hic so sorry for leaving you out so much. I promise I'll make it up to you.""No that's- that's completely fine. I choose not to come. I make that sacrifice. No need for you to feel bad about it.""Sigh. Yet you still made it here. I'm touched. Here you are -hic- working so hard to produce us SMILEs and we can't even keep the pace gathering new recruits. At this rate we'll never fulfill our dream... again.""Actually that is the reason why I came great Kaido. I believe we found the solution to our manpower problems! Here. Allow me to introduce you to him. He's my new acquaintance. Cavalier Silver-""Hmmmmm?"The giant person looks down at you. Even now as he's filthy drunk and keeps wobbling his massive frame sends shivers down your spine. Yes, there is no doubt about it. He is the real deal. A Yonko. No matter how many times you see one their strength won't fail to make you excited."HUUUUUGE!""Hmmmmm? A-Alright Joker. Which one of the eight is him?""Oh no...">Me>Oy! Big meat mountain! There is only one of me around! You better remember that!>Stay quiet>Other?
>>5146265>>Oy! Big meat mountain! There is only one of me around! You better remember that!
>>5146265>Hello! Do you like sake, too?
>>5146265>Other?Eight of what? There's only one me around last I checked. There shouldn't be more unless sawbones did something without telling me.
>>5146265>Me>The one and only
>>5146299>>5146321Hmmmm this throws a wrench into things as it's not cocky and disrespectful enoughBut I'll make it work>>5146272This too>writing
>>5146272Do we like sake tho? Cause last i checked Silver prefered that molten rock rum, or whatever it was called... It would also be one hellova bomb to drop, shame i missed the vote
"Me. The one and only!""Wuh-which one said that?""Me! Hello? I see you like to drink so do I!"You then proceed to walk up to the somber giant and plop down next to him. He just gives you an odd look while everyone else is astonished by your audacity. A woman even bigger than Kaido himself who's sitting next to him chuckles."What a little rascal!"She says in a delighted tone.Meanwhile some of Kaidos henchmen snap at you."OY! BRAT! Who do you think you are?! You can't just sit down next to our captain so casually! Gotta show respect!""Hey! Shut up and bring me something to drink!""WHY YOU-"Upon hearing this Queen decides to step in."It's fine fellas. He's with Joker. If he wants to be dumb as hell that's his business. Get him something to drink."A few geishas bring you a greatly oversized sake cup filled with fermented rice spirit. You've heard from Marcella that the stuff is pretty bad, then again you haven't heard her praising many things in the time you've known her. Kaido watches half curious half confused from the booze what you're doing and sees you lifting the cup to drink from it. Now it has to be said that you were not really great with alcohol back in the day. Because as it turns out there is a right way to drink and a wrong way for you to drink. And Shakki may have taught you the right way. But when Kaido patted your back just now it definitely made you drink the wrong way. So the whole cup of sake you just managed to store in your cheeks went down the gullet all at once. And you already feel it hitting you."Hic. G-Good man. You see how nice this is? Sigh. Why does nobody ever want to drink with me like that.""Because they'd die captain. And because you're a terrible drunk.""Sigh. I know...""Muahahaha! Hey Joker. Your buddy isn't looking too hot right now! I bet he's gonna puke his guts out soon! What a lightweight!"Queen laughs at you which makes your droopy head snap up to look at him. Your one good eye is definitely a bit foggy right now but as it perceives the giant balloon of a man it definitely spots something it likes."Muhahahahaha-he-he-HEY! WHAT THE HELL?!""OOOOOOOOO!"You coo as you hang onto his mustache with a half in each hand and you use it as your personal swing."Get this little monkey off of me!""HEY! Get off Queen-sama right now!"Two grunts try to get you off of him but all they manage to do is make their presence known to you. Big mistake. They see you disappear and one of them feels you squatting on his shoulder. Before he could comment on it you jump down and grab the back of his head before smashing it into the floor. The other gets a kick to his ribs as you felt him reaching for his sword. He didn't need that lung anyway."D-Dish ish your fault fer HIC uuuh. Whah wash I doin? O yeeeee!"
You're feeling mighty peckish and see an unattended peacock just standing there. You chow down which manages to get an interesting reaction out of one of the geisha."EEEEEEEEEK! HE'S EATING MY KIMONO!""THAT'S IT! I had enough! Boys! Deadly force authorized!"Queen gives the command and the guards who aren't horribly wasted spring to action. Within a blink each of them gets hit for their troubles which knocks them all out with more or less long lasting injuries. Then the fat man gets some of your attention as you grab him by the ponytail, pull his head down to the ground and start spinning him around."GAAAAAAAAAH! GET THIS THING OFF ME!""SPEEN!"You toss him but due to all the fat he doesn't fly so good and drops down a meter away from you."Hic. Boooooooo! O-Okay. Nao to draw willies on hish face. Hic. G-Gonna hafta trace it."But before you could follow through with your intentions you hear a loud THUD like God just took a dump next to you. Kaido got up. He blows some air out his nose which smells heavily like booze."You... QUIT SCREWING UP MY PARTY BRAT!"Doflamingo starts sweating."He went from sad straight to angry drunk?!"You feel... pain. Weird. You haven't felt anything this minute, yet now everything feels like pain. Your right side feels as if it exploded. So does your left after you hit the wall of the castle but not as bad as your right. Looking at it you see that the arm is limp and it feels like someone is poking your lungs with shards of glass all the time. Touching your forehead with your prosthetic hand reveals that you are bleeding profusely."Kekeke!"Your legs still work so you kick yourself off the wall and at Kaido. Using your last good hand you grab him by the horn as you pull your head back."Silver Style: FUDGE YOU!"You headbutt the giant as hard as you can and, well... it doesn't go well. The giant doesn't even budge and you're pretty sure your skull cracked open. On the upside the effects of the booze are gone. Somehow. Pretty sure it was shot out the bleeding wounds you have on your right side. As you land on your two feet you feel your head hurting but you're not sure if it's the hangover or the headbutting of a mountain that caused it."Whoa. What happened?""I-I'm dead... How did I manage to kill myself?"Doflamingo mutters to himself as Kaido remains stationary. Finally the huge man shakes himself off and grabs his head."Uuuuuugh. All that good buzz is gone. Damn kid. Oh well. I'll just use his skull as a sake cup and start over. Now let me see your face at least once before I kill-"But he doesn't finish what he wanted to say. Instead his eyes focus on you as they start wavering."Who... are you?""My name is Silver.""And Silver... what is your favorite drink?""I dunno. I like Molten Rock I guess."The kanabo slips out of the onis hand."WORORORORORORO! WORORORORORORO!"His men and women are puzzled by this."He went back to being a happy drunk?!"
"OY JOKER! Where did you find this kid?!""I was just about to tell you, I-""Don't care! Hey! Boy! You okay there?""I guess. I'm in a lot of pain right now but that's it.""OY QUEEN! Do a quick check-up on him! You! Geisha! Bring us some more booze! And only the best stuff! No... wait! I have a barrel of Molten Rock stashed away! BRING THAT! This is going to be the best!""C-Captain-"One of the beast pirates groans."W-What about us?""Hmmmmm?"He picks back up his kanabo and smashes it down on the poor guy."No complaints! Only fun!""Kaido! Boss-man! I'll get on to doing what you just said a moment ago but WHAT THE HELL?! This brat just attacked our boys! The least would be to beat the crap out of him and send him to a dungeon!""Huh? Oh yeah. You're right Queen. Sorry. SILVER!"He points at you."Apologize! It's okay to make mistakes. Everyone does from time to time. But you gotta be a better man and own up to them! That's the rules!">Apologize>Don't wanna!>Other?
>>5146478>Apologize>Marcy always told me I should stick to milk
>>5146478>Apologize>"Sorry about that! If i don't drink properly i end up going crazy. Haha."
>>5146478>>ApologizeHis house. But they should tell us the rules BEFORE we break them!
>>5146478>Apologizewouldn't be the first time.
>>5146478>ApologizeHe's not a weenie and he does have a point.
>>5146478>ApologizeIf thems the rules then thems the rules
Well it's his house, his rules."Sorry. Marcy always tells me I should stick to milk. But I thought I had a handle on it. Guess it's still not safe for me to drink.""Attaboy! See Queen? It's all fiiiine! Now come and put him back together! And Joker! My precious boy! Come sit with us!"Doflamingo refuses, instead opting to sit alone so he could adjust the remarkably tight collar of his shirt, completely forgetting the fact that it's not buttoned up. Meanwhile the big guy named Queen has the injured soldiers escorted to the infirmary as he takes a look at your injuries."DAYUM!""That bad?""Nah captain. But this kid is built different! Say boy, what were your parents feeding you? Pacifistae and seastone?""I don't have parents."Kaido starts to snivel."I'm so sorry to hear that. No child should ever experience growing up without any parents.""It's okay. I was very little when it happened.""Oh? So it's a long story then. That's okay. We got plenty of drinking and partying to do. Go ahead and tell me your life story boy. Where do you come from?"As your wounds are addressed you recount your tales to the emperor to the best of your abilities. Sadly the club you took to the head messed with your already shoddy memory so you definitely leave out a few things. But there are just some details you'd never be able to forget. After you give him the gist of what happened Kaido goes into his Crying Drunk phase again."WAAAAH! That's so terrible! SNIFF! Why must such tragedies always happen to those who don't deserve them?""I don't know."Then he goes back to a happy mood."But you are Elizas kid huh? Why I never would've guessed. Wororo! I haven't heard from the girl since...""Since when?""Ah it doesn't matter!"He pats your head."What matters is that you are her kid. Damn girl could've at least come and shown you off! But I guess that's not her style.""You two were good back then?""You know?""A few things. Spider says hello.""WORORORORORO! Interesting! And you met Linlin too?! Hmmmmm. I don't think this is a coincidence. It must be fate!""Fate is for weenies.""Maybe. Maybe not. Anyway, yes you could say that the two of us were close. At least closer than she was with the others. You see I was the youngest member after her. The two little runts-"Kaido looks like he's about to go off on a rant about the old days but his subordinate Queen starts shrieking before he could get going."EEEEEEEEEEEH?! YOU DID WHAT?!"He's looking at your bounty poster."Kekeke! Well it all started-"
"A friend of Kaido and a little murdermachine? Oh you are so sweet, I could just eat you up!""Oy. Keep your hands to yourself Maria! Sorry about that. She can get overly excited."Kaido starts arguing with the giant woman after you tell them about Mary Geoise."Wororo. But I guess I should read the news more often. I just stopped because there is never anything interesting in it. The last thing I remember being fun was that war the Old Man started. I wanted to join so bad but that red haired bastard stopped me! Ah but we'll show him! We'll show all of them! Isn't that right Silver?""YEAH!""WORORO! YEAH! THAT'S RIGHT!""What are you gonna do?""Oh? Oh you want to know? Well Queen here? He's one of my three All-Stars. And Maria is one of my six Tobiroppo. You could say they are my officers. Other than them I've been building an army, recruiting anybody worth my time. That's right! And the plan is to feed every single one of these grunts a Devil Fruit! I'm making the biggest, baddest gang there ever was and once we have enough guns and men we'll unload it all on the world to start the biggest fight there ever was or will be!""Whooooah! Cool! OW!"You feel a prick in your arm as Queen gets up."Alright. I'm done. And if you feel like going berserk again do me a favor and die. I did NOT enjoy having to stitch together steel cables.""Sorry.""Ah it's okay. I got some cool data out of it at the very least. Now if you'll excuse me I got a party to run! Ciao!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxDTilDaIKsYou watch him go down to the stage and give a little performance to raise the spirit of the crowd. And while he's not that good of a dancer or a singer all of his heart is in his act. And he has a big heart."Heh. Look at him go.""Queen is a showman. He likes being the center of attention. Well, how do you find my little party?""I don't know. It's cool I guess. Don't feel much thanks to the sedatives.""Yeah. Sorry about that. I guess we both got carried away a little. But ignore that for now. Come! Drink with me! This is the good stuff! ARGH! Feels like a kick in the throat!"You exchange a toast with Kaido and drink some of the burning liquid as well. He then sets down his cup and gives you a serious look."So. Why have you come here boy? I don't really think this is where you belong quite yet.""Oh-">I forgot. The Flamingo guy wanted me to do something>I just heard there is a party and wanted to check it out>Other?
>>5146598>>I forgot. The Flamingo guy wanted me to do something
>>5146598>I forgot. The Flamingo guy wanted me to do something>Something something clowns
>>5146598>I forgot. The Flamingo guy wanted me to do something
Yosh. Time for Mingos plan>writing
"I forgot. But I think Flamingo over there had a plan or something.""Did he now? JOKER! GET OVER HERE!""Kaido.""Joker. My boy here says you got some sort of offer for me.""I've had it for a while now but yes. Allow me to explain my idea to you. What has been the number 1 issue since the production of SMILEs began? People. Even though production is slow, the rate at which we go through waiters is alarming. But our friend Silver managed to create an artificial island at the cusp of the New World. It has become quite popular in recent times. With minimal resources we could set up a recruitment center there to lure in more recruits."Kaido then looks at you."Would you be okay with that?""What? No. This is the first time I've heard about it!""He says no."Doflamingo seems frustrated."Listen Silver! Don't you realize what I'm offering? All you need to do is give them a single damn stall to recruit people at! In return you get THE Kaido as an ally! How is this a difficult decision?""Joker. He said no.""And just what is going on now? How did the conversation shift to center around him? Why are you taking his side when it does not benefit you to do so?""I suggest you watch your mouth whelp. You can keep drooling over your coming new age all you want but you are neither the one to bring it about nor the one whose age it will be. So sit down and play your part. Or ELSE!"The emperor vaguely gestures towards his kanobo and the warlord backs down. He doesn't seem too pleased by this but there isn't much he can do about it."Well I'm not opposed to the idea. I just need some time.""Think all you want boy. I won't rush you. It's your decision to make. But just know that it'd make me real happy!""I'll think about it.""Good! But that's enough talk about business! Let us celebrate instead wororo!"You return to your drinking, eating and the enjoyment of the music. Black Maria, the giantess provided you with a more soothing alternative to Queens bombastic and energetic show. By the time you run out of alcohol both of you are thoroughly sloshed but in a good way now."Hic. Well Silver, I must say I haven't had this much fun in a LONG while.""What are you talking about? There is plenty more fun to be had, hic.""Yeah. For me. But you look like you're at you limit. And as entertaining as you are I don't want that previous incident to repeat. Alright? Listen if you want to rest the island has plenty of space. You'd be given the VIP treatment of course!">Accept his offer and rest here for the night>Politely refuse and return home>Other?
>>5146669>Accept his offer and rest here for the night
>>5146669>>Accept his offer and rest here for the night
>>5146669>Accept his offer and rest here for the night>I need some bread and water...
>>5146669>Accept his offer and rest here for the nightHell fucking yes we stay
>>5146669Huh. I'm kinda surprised Silver was against that. He doesnt strike me as the type of guy who'd give a shit what people willingly choose to do, no matter how stupid it is.Maybe it's the fact that Flamingo didnt tell us first?
>>5146669>>Accept his offer and rest here for the night>I need some bread, water... and milk.
>>5146677Probably because Doffy presented it as if Silver would do it for Kaido before consulting him about it.That's a no-no because that means Silver wasn't in charge of the decision.Plus y'know, we didn't vote for it.
>>5146677It might have something to do with the fate stuff Blackbeard was talking about, Silver might just inherently avoid decisions that would surely get him into really bad situations... until he get his head around an idea then their will be no stopping his charge ahead.
Alright. Camping>writing>>5146677>>5146685These and because Silver wants to think about this first
"YAWN! Yeah I guess a bit of rest would be good now. My right side is still a bit stiff. Where can I go sleep? Will the big lady show me the way? Oh but before I go I'll need some snacks, some water and of course milk!""No. Maria stays."Kaido then lets out a whistle."Bao Huang! Take our guest to one of the bedrooms. And give him everything he asks for."A little girl with a piece of paper glued to her face jumps down from the rafters."Aye aye! Please come this way! And if you have any other requests I shall write them down as well!""Cool! Thanks Kaido!"You follow the small squirrel girl through the halls as she leads you to your accommodations. She tries to chat you up about stuff like how long you've know Kaido and other such things but you just tell her you don't or something equally witty. As you're going however several of Kaidos men run past you."Again?!""What? Now?""The master?!"The shout."Something's wrong with the party?""No. Unfortunately.""What?"You're confused by her response until you see the guy that just ran past you fly backwards. The only reason why they'd want the party to get crashed is there is something worse going on. Sensing the danger the squirrel girl hides from view and waits to see what happens as a new figure arrives. They are clad in a white kimono and they are wearing some sort of mask. Without giving a hoot you continue your walk until you reach the giant fucker that's apparently causing trouble. You try to side-step them to the right but they try moving to the left so you bump into each other. The same rite is performed multiple times in different directions until they've had enough."Move.""You move!""Hmph. I don't have time for this. I'm leaving!"The demonic looking figure grabs a club not too dissimilar to Kaidos and swings it at you. Frowning you draw Argent and meet him halfway."Go! I don't care. But you'll go around me!"Your weapons clash and almost immediately you realize that this may have been a mistake. Something in your gut is telling you that this is about to get bad and it does. A pulse is released as you push against each other which shakes the walls of the building and knocks out everyone present except the squirrel girl who is still hiding upstairs. As the flash fades both of you take a step back and size up your opponent."It seems that the grunts got an upgrade.""I'm not a grunt!""Hmph. Yes, I suppose not. Not with that Haki. Who are you then?""You first!""My name is Yamato. And I am Kaidos son!"
And that is where I'm going to end things as I am about to fall asleep sitting upI hope you enjoyed yourselves. Have a good day
>>5146737Thanks for running Spooks, and I can't wait to call Yamato an okama (and to be fair she does a much better job of it them most of them)
>>5146736inb4 silver asks if she's one of those okama he sees in outer heaven sometimes
>>5146751I mean it's a fair question. Okama's don't have to only go one way, in fact that's kinda the point to the whole thing really.
>>5146772>You can't be his son, you're a girl!>I'm AM his son!>Oh you're like an okama?>No!>Oh a REVERSE okama! Duh, sorry.Nuance and subtlety - or even actual meaning - is lost on Silver.
>>5146821I feel like Silver wouldn't know what an okama is since he still doesn't know what sex is.
>>5147170What does that have to do with that.
>>5147170Frankly Silver is wrong and misinformed about a fuckton of things. But associating crossdressing or claiming to be the wrong gender with okamas is crossing the line? Silver knows what gender is. Just because he doesn't know that your penis serves a purpose other than writing in the snow doesn't mean he can't come to his own conclusions on things.
>>5147170Except, you know, we interact with them on a somewhat semi-regular and we specifically saved Will from the trap-doctor on our way to Amazon Lily by pointing out it was an okama. Silver knows, he might not get it but he knows they're a thing.
>>5147170He knows the difference between men and women and knows what it's called when a man pretends to be a woman.He doesn't need the deeper context of autogynophelia and genital mutilation to know these things.
>>5148599Actually he kinda doesnt. Like with many things Silvers understandin is skewed. He kinda knows the difference between genders. Booba + balls.But wjile he interacted plenty with okama he has no clue what they are. For all he knows they are just a brand of weirdo men that like to wear girly clothes and usually are buff with 5 o' clock shadows and that's it.If one of them would come to him and tried to explain what he was Silver would react like a child would.He'd say "you're not a girl, you're a dude" and if they insisted Silver would prove his point by punching him in the ballsYou really don't need to overthink things with the boy
>>5148954So does that mean he's gonna punch Yamato in the tits?
Not sure how well it's gonna work out but I'll try running tomorrow around the usual time
"My name is Silver! And I am a pirate!""Silver?"The giant lowers his kanabo and lets it rest on the ground."Captain "Cavalier" Silver?""The only!""Interesting. I've read about you in the papers. They say you're a ferocious one but I don't personally see it. Perhaps you could be of use to me then. You come from the outside correct? What's your business here. I assume you came to present yourself to my shitty father.""I heard there is a party. And I like parties.""I see. So you won't tell me. Well I still have no reason not to ask it. I'm interested in a certain pirate. Perhaps you know something of him. Do you know Monkey D. Luffy?"You feel your stomach cramp just at the mention of his name. This really activated your almonds. Even in the New World, on an isolated island you can not escape the monkeyman. With all the malice and bile that you can produce you speak his name as if it was the vilest insult and almost spit on the ground in disgust."Goofy?!""Yes! Straw Hat Luffy! Could you tell me about him?! They said he disappeared almost 2 years ago and there were no news about him since! What happened? Where is he?!">Reluctantly tell him about that goofy idiot>Wouldn't you like to know ogreboy?>I heard enough! I choose violence! (Attack)>Other?
>>5151254>I heard enough! I choose violence! (Attack)FATHER I CRAVE VIOLENCE!
>>5151254>I heard enough! I choose violence! (Attack)He's too cringe to be left alive!
>>5151254>>Reluctantly tell him about that goofy idiotIf only to point out how missplaced this guys trust in "Run and Hide" Goofy is, pick a real pirate! Like, anyone. There's a bunch everywhere!
>>5151254>Wouldn't you like to know ogreboy?
>>5151254>>Reluctantly tell him about that goofy idiot
>>5151254>Reluctantly tell him about that goofy idiot>Yeah, i know that little rubber turd! Me and him are rivals! Right now i'm waiting on him to get stronger so i can kick his butt again.>I've been practicing my drawing in secret. This time, i'll win for sure...
It seems diplomacy won in the end. Though only barely as Silvers rage can not be contained>writing
Now your piss is really boiling but after a few deep breaths you manage to just barely contain yourself. Wouldn't want to wreck the nice castle of your nice host after all. So with your mind kept in check if not calmed down you try to explain things to the tall weirdo."Euuuuuuuuuugh. HIM! Yeah I know that rubber pain in my butt! We have this thing going on where we try to outdo each other. But the big donger went into hiding for two years. SO! Now I HAVE to wait for him to get stronger and come back so I can kick his butt again! I've been practicing hard! He won't even see it coming! Watch! I'm going to destroy him with this!"You put your hand on your sword and let loose your malicious thoughts so you can channel them into the blade. The oni takes a step back while the squirrel girl in the rafters retreats further back."Silver Style: SECRET TECHNIQUE! SURE KILL-"Argent springs from his blade so quick the naked eye can't see and a gust of wind blows through the hall from your strike. As you sheathe the sword the wood on the wall next to you cracks and splinters in a pattern."WEENIEBUTT!""PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTAHAHAHHAHA! You're a funny one!"The large fella starts laughing so hard that snots begins to drip from the holes on the mask."But seriously now. What can you tell me about him?""I AM serious! Why do you want to hear about that loser anyway?!""None of your business. I just am. You said he disappeared on purpose?""Yeah I guess. He went to the war and got his butt kicked. I heard his brother died too. So he's off to get good I think. He sent a secret message with the papers when he visited the grave of Whitebeard. He said he'd be gone for 2 years. That's about up I think.""I see. Yes, that would make sense. Ace dying no doubt wounded him greatly.""You knew Firefist Ace?""Curses! I spoke too much! But I see. So Luffy will return soon, right? Yosha! That is very good news indeed!"He seems happy. But as his question was answered it looks like another popped in his mind."Hey! You're a super rookie right? Have you-""YOUNG MASTER! STOP!"You hear some of Kaidos men approaching from behind. They sound angry."Damn it! I got to go! Thank you Silver! I'll catch you later!"And he runs off just like that.Bao Huang, the squirrel girl jumps down as soon as Kaidos men run past you."Phew. That was close. Please refrain from further vandalizing Kaido-samas property like that!""I DID NOT BREAK ANYTHING!"The girl with the paper on her face looks at the wall as it breaks apart under the weight of your awesome drawing."Much-"
The little girl then escorts you to your room and has some of the castles servants deliver your requested items. Namely food, water and milk. The food is not as much as you'd like and it's not what you're used to. Lot's of vegetables and fish, some octopus even. Reminds you a lot of fish-man island cuisine except less exotic. But it's plenty enough to get you to fall asleep even though you're basically sleeping on the floor. However you are awakened when someone DARES to open the sliding door to your room. You make a promise to yourself that if they do ANYTHING to intentionally disturb your sleep you'll subject them to the most painful of deaths. But the heavy sound of the footsteps and the stench of sake makes you reconsider that. You feel your whole body jump up a little as a rather large mass sits down next to you."Glug glug glug."The sound of someone chugging booze is unmistakable."Blegh. Sniff. I..."The voice is deep. It's unmistakably Kaido himself."I... I miss you. Captain. Hic."His speech is slurred, slow but above all filled with pain. He sounds like he's genuinely struggling with his tears.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DdbbFacGow"You made it all look so easy. Hic. I-I thought I could do it too. I thought I had it Rocks. But I'm afraid I'm not enough. Sniff. I tried. I tried so hard. I wanted to make a difference. Bring change. But I couldn't. I-I thought I was too weak so I got stronger and I took over this country. But now... now I'm here. Still unable to fulfill my dream, stuck on this prison of an island and not feeling anything. I'm such a failure HIC. Nothing is fun anymore because I'm too strong. And yet I am still far too weak. What sense does that make?! I wish you were still here Cap'n. Glug glug. You always knew how to cheer me up. I wish we could all go back to those good old days. Sure we argued a lot and tried to kill each other constantly. But at the time I don't think any of us realized how good we had it Rocks!"Finally at the end of his speech Kaido breaks down and just starts sobbing.>Stay very quiet and hope he leaves>Try to say something>Other?
>>5151297>Give him a hugPoor kaido... he lost his family. We know what it feels like to be alone.
>>5151297>"Is that all? Well at least your not such a big weenie that you're quitting. But quit with the bellyaching and pick your head up. Guppies cry, and you're not some wimpy little guppy, right?

"Oy!""Huh?"You turn over and push the blanket off of you as you sit up."You done?""Wha-""Because I'd like to sleep! Hmmmm? What's with that dumb look on your face? Come on! Chin up! You're Kaido! The strongest THING ever! You can't look ridiculous like that!"You stand up and smack the gourd out of his hand. He simply continues to look at you speechless."Well at least you aren't giving up. Otherwise I'd have to call you a weenie! Now quit your belly aching already! Only guppies cry! Are you a guppy? Or are you a big koi?!""I... I'm not a guppy!""That's right! It's in your name! You are Koido! ACT LIKE IT!""RAAAAAARGH!"The giant oni shouts and flexes his big muscles."THAT'S IT! GOOD JOB! YOU ARE THE BIGGEST! YOU ARE THE TOUGHEST!""YEEAAAAH! I AM THE BEST! I AM KAIDO! WHOOOO!"After getting him pumped up you try to give him a big hug but your tiny arms can't even reach around one of his abs so you just give him a few reassuring pats. Then to calm him down a bit you ask him about what the good old days were like in the old crew. He lays down and starts mumbling stories to you but his speech is so slurred that you don't get any of it. Looks like the inordinate amounts of booze did their job and knocked him the hell out. You end up spending the rest of the night sleeping on top of the giant as he snores loudly and sleeptalks through the night. The morning does not bring you any relief. All it has to offer is a thick alcohol and sweat flavored mist and a groggy giant with chest muscles bigger than your entire being."Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. What happened? Where the hell am I? Oh god my head. It's like seeing Linlin in the showers all over again!""Hello.""WHOA. Boy! What are you doing in my room?! HUH?!""ME?! YOU GOT INTO MINE YOU BIG DUMB OGRE!""THIS WHOLE CASTLE IS MINE YOU LITTLE SHRIMP! EVERY ROOM IS MINE!""THAT MAY BE TRUE BUT YOU ARE BEING PEDANTIC AND IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACTS YOU BIG DRUNKARD!"You butt heads and glare into each others eyes for a few moments before he lets out an uproarious laugh which alerts some of the servants. Kaido immediately demands some sake and breakfast for the both of you from them."WORORORORO! This is great! I don't know why but despite this blasted headache I feel amazing! I haven't had a good rest like this in a long time!""You're welcome.""I wasn't thanking you, little twerp!"Kaido grins at you as the staff arrives with your food."Alright! Now let's dig in!"
Your meal quickly devolves into an eating contest and you end up committing what could only be described as a war crime against food-kind and give Kaidos men severe ptsd. They'll never be able to find joy in eating ever again. But at least the giant man seems happy."You got some fucking guts boy! Challenging me like that! But be it land, sea, air or the dinner table I can not be beat!""Oh? So you're ready to move on from the appetizers then?""Wororo. Later. I got to get ready. I'm a busy man. You should also get washed up. You reek. Then come to the balcony. I got something to show you.""Kek!"Kaido leaves you for your own devices and you get yourself cleaned up a bit. After dressing up and gathering your weapons you start weighing your options.>You should check up on Flamingo. He seemed pretty out of it yesterday>That Yamato fella from yesterday was weird and sounded like he wanted something more from you. Maybe you should see what that was about>Hanging out with Kaido is fun. And you wouldn't want to keep him waiting>Other?
>>5151362>>That Yamato fella from yesterday was weird and sounded like he wanted something more from you. Maybe you should see what that was about
>>5151362>>You should check up on Flamingo. He seemed pretty out of it yesterdayA big part of parties is making sure everyone is involved and has fun, and while Kaido is hilarious Silver has learnt a lot about responsibilities, specifically which ones are fun and which can safely be skipped. This is not the latter.
>>5151362>>You should check up on Flamingo. He seemed pretty out of it yesterdayHe did give us a pretty nice present
>>5151362>You should check up on Flamingo. He seemed pretty out of it yesterdayI guess that we should do this sooner rather than later.
>>5151362>That Yamato fella from yesterday was weird and sounded like he wanted something more from you. Maybe you should see what that was about
You do recall that Doffy seemed pretty tense yesterday. Since he's the one that brought you here it's probably smart to check up on him to see how he's doing. You owe that much to him for bringing you to this banger of a place. Unfortunately there is one problem with that. This place is like a maze and you get lost easily in it. Wondering where the hell you are you decide to ask the first person you come across some directions."Excuse me! I'm a bit lost. Could you help?""Hmmm? Who... What?"The pirate looking fella gets stunned when he turns around and sees you."Whew! Well slap my nuts and call me a squirrel! X Drake! What are you doing here? No... wait! I remember! You're on vacation! No that's not it. Ah yes! You beat up one of Kaidos guys and took his island just so you could join him! Got to say I'm impressed! You beat everyone in bending the knee. Not even Bege submitted himself so fast to Big Mom!""Cavalier Silver... How the hell did you get here? More importantly what are you doing here?""I heard there was a party. Now I'm looking for Doffy. Have you seen him?""Who?""Doflamingo. You're a bit slow aren't you?""Donquixote... Doflamingo..."His eyes widen in shock."Sorry. Was I meant to say Joker? Anyway can we get going now? I'm worried about him.""Hmph. Find him yourself. I got places to be.""Hey. You don't get to ignore me Drake. You're a weenie who gave up right at the start. Now I'll ask nicely where Joker is one more time. And if I don't get an answer I'm putting you in your place!"He stares at you and contemplates what he should do about this."The hall is that way. You'll likely find him there. Now if you'll excuse me...""Thank you! Bye bye!"You leave the quitter weenie alone as you resume your search for Doflamingo. Guy doesn't even have a missing eye but wears a weird eye-patch thingie on his face. Poser. Thankfully you can get your mind off of him when you find Doflamingo having breakfast in the balcony where you hanged out yesterday. He's probably trying to finish his meal before Kaido shows up again."Heeey! Flamingo! It's me!""Oh. Boy. Where did you disappear yesterday?""I had my fill so I went to sleep. Found this cool guy on the way there but that's not important. Look I just came to apologize. It looked like I made you worry yesterday.""That's an understatement. First you attack one of the Yonko then the next minute you become best buddies with him? I'd like to ask how you did that but something tells me I don't want to know.""That's how you make friends dingus.""Call it whatever you wish. That is a dangerous game you're playing. Heed my words boy. Be very careful around Kaido. Anger him at your own peril. That thing is not human. He's a monster. He can and will destroy you if you make a wrong move."
"Now... May I ask you something? Why did you feel it necessary to embarrass me in front of Kaido?""What? Your idea?""What else?""I don't know. I like the idea. But you didn't ask me first. And I hate that! I decide what I do! Nobody else!""So despite liking it you just did it to spite me? Good to know.""YES! But don't take it personally. Anyway Kaido seemed happy anyway so all is good.""Hmph. Yes. I suppose so. He did seem satisfied. Though for the love of me I can't figure out why beyond that you are simply peculiar.""Kek! That's probably how it is! Anyway don't worry. I'm still thinking about what you said. About letting Kaido recruit people to his crew in Outer Heaven. I don't mind the idea.""But?"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KmQu2yuqm4"But there is something else that I'm interested in as well.""Really? Such as?""Using Outer Heaven to supply candy to Big Mom...""Ah. Now that makes sense. Hmmmm. Well I suppose one little bit of advice wouldn't hurt. Listen Silver. It may sound tempting to court two emperors like that. But I suggest you don't even try to do that balancing act. You try to appease both and you'll just anger both. Pick one or the other. Not both. That is, unless you want to seal your fate quite rapidly. The Yonko rule this world. Opposing any of them is tantamount to suicide. Making enemies of two at once is beyond insanity. Nobody can withstand that. Do you get it?""I think so.""Good."He takes a glass of wine and downs it."Now if you'll excuse me I have a kingdom to run. So I'm taking my leave. Are you coming?">Yeah sure.>Nah. I still wanna check this place out a bit more>Other?
>>5151415>Nah. Kaido asked me to stick aroundBecause he did.
>>5151415>Sorry, i can't. Kaido said he's got something he wants to show me.
>>5151419>>5151420Supporting. Kaido wants us here and we gotta rub it into Doffy's face
Staying with papa Kaido it is>writing
"Nah thanks. Kaido asked me to stay a bit because he wanted to show me something. You go ahead. I'll get home with my vivre card.""As you wish. Then I won't get between you and your... fun. See you later Cavalier."As Doffy heads for the exit you start looking for the Yonko himself. While the place is still as confusing as ever it's rather easy finding a moving landslide like Kaido. After you meet up with him he takes you to the very tip top of the skull castle and asks you a question."Can you fly Silver?"POOF"Wororo. A bat? Hmmm. No. That won't do. We'll do this in style!"He transforms right before your eyes, as he's a fellow Zoan fruit user and you find yourself staring at it with your jaw hitting the ground."A DRAGON?!""Did you expect anything less? Now hop on. I don't have all day!"You fly up to his head and take a seat on his big mane before he takes off. The mountain sized dragon rises to the sky so fast the wind almost rips your face off. Rising above the clouds isn't exactly anything new to you but getting there from the ground in a few seconds is nothing to sneeze at. Kaido then starts moving across the sky towards a far larger body of land."What is that?""That's mainland Wano. What you saw until now was just the island of Onigashima, my realm.""Where are we going?""To the Flower Capital."You reach a great city full of tall pagodas and with bustling streets. Unlike the island you were on where most everyone was a pirate the people here seem to be mainly civilians with only a few strong fighters peppered throughout. But there is one place where you feel few more strong people congregating, which is the big towering castle in the middle. Kaido takes you right in there and as he descends he turns back to a human, if he could ever be called that."Oy. Orochi!""Ah Kaido! What a pleasant surprise! Have you come to join us for breakfast? Komurasaki dear, please leave us. Everyone else, GET OUT! You too Kyoshiro!""With all due respect Lord Orochi I don't think that's a wise idea. While I trust Kaido with your life it appears we have an uninvited guest among our midst."Taking this as your cue you pop out of Kaidos hair and after jumping down you revert to your human form."Hi.""Whaaaaat? Who is this sassy child?""Hmmmm? Who's the weenie that looks like a hippo?""WHAT? HOW DARE YOU?""Worororororo! Relax Orochi. It's not an insult. Just an observation. This is Silver. I may have only met him a day ago but I'll kill any of your men that lay a finger on him. So act accordingly. But the reason I brought him here is that I think you two have much in common. Go ahead Orochi. Tell him that story of yours that you love so much. I think you'll both like the results!"
"Huuuh? Well if you say so-"Though skeptical Lord Orochi decided to indulge the Yonko and he shared the tale of how he became the Shogun of Wano with you. Several decades ago the Kurozumi clan, his clan were one of the great noble clans of Wano and ruled over one of its regions under the old Shogun. However one day Orochis grandfather together with some other members of his clan tried to take over the country. They attempted to kill the Shogun. It did not work out and the Kurozumi clan fell on hard times. After the coup everyone bearing the family name was ostracized at best and killed on sight at worst. Everyone who had the blood of the Kurozumi in them were treated as less than animal, abused, mocked, shunned and ridiculed. Their lives were turned into a living hell whether they had anything to do with the coup or not."Me and many others suffered at the hands of the "people" of this country unjustly! So I swore on my name that I'd have my revenge on them! I'd pay back this country for every injustice we suffered! And I'd do it as slowly and painfully as I can!"He says. And through a lot of scheming and an alliance with Kaido he managed to do just that. Now he rules over Wano as the new Shogun, just as his grandfather wanted."Well? Got anything to say to that Silver?""Keh. Kekekeke! Yes! Good! I approve!"Standing up you turn your back Orochi and slowly undo your shirt. As you reveal your back to him you continue."Paying back those who hurt you? I respect that.""Gufufufufu! I see! Yes, you understand the taste of revenge right? Then we are kindred spirits you and I!""Yeah. Let's go with that!"After that Orochi became much friendlier and you joined him for a couple of drinks with Kaido before the big man decided he had enough. You followed him and rode back to Onigashima on his back. But on the way there you felt the need to speak up to him."Why do you work with that guy? He's scum.""Oh? And here I thought you respected him.""Yes. I respect revenge. But he's a weenie and a weakling.""Yes. He is a depraved, perverse little man. But that amuses me. And he has his uses. The people of Wano are fools, the whole lot of them. They are obsessed with tradition to a fault. Even though they despise Orochi he is the Shogun and thus they follow him. No matter who it may be or how well he'd govern an outsider would be less accepted as the leader than him. I can't leave Wano for long as he can't keep it under control. But if he's removed I can leave even less. This island would be my prison. Even more so than now. So he's necessary to keep around. For now.""Yeah. But why did you want to show me that?""To know what you'd be getting into. And as a lesson of sorts. What Orochi said isn't entirely false. You have a similar hate raging inside you. Unlike him though you earned your revenge with your own strength. That's good. But you should still use Orochi as an example. Do not let that hate control you Silver. No matter what. Understand?"
>>5151525whoa, Kaido being a teacher to Silver. Weird
And I think I'll end things off right hereThere is still a bit of something something left that I'd like to do in Wano but I think we're almost done hereAnyway I hope you enjoyed yourselves. Take care until next time
>>5151530Thanks for running spooks
>>5151530Thanks for running, your characterization of Kaido has been splendid and really damn enjoyable.
>>5151530Wack, Based Kaido at it again.
>>5151529I mean the man ain't wrong. It'd be easy for Silver to fall into the same trap Orochi did if it wasn't for his crew being his moral lifeline.
Alright! Let's announce the next session then!I was thinking about running on Wednesday next. Only a short session this time
"Hmmmmm. Hmmmmm. Hmmmmm? Oh! I don't get it.""Wororororo. Don't worry about it. You will. Now what do you say about going back to Onigashima?""Alright! But fly above the clouds!""Hmph. Don't demand things from me brat!""Kekeke!"After returning to Kaidos little private resort the big man wastes no time and hits the booze right away. Apparently besides trying to kill himself this is his only hobby. You don't complain though. Free food and drinks are always good. Not to mention the entertainment that comes from his rowdy crew. This is your kind of place. Like Outer Heaven but even wilder. Once spirits soar high you decide to hit the Yonko with some questions that have been on your mind for a while now."Hey Kaido! If you can't really leave here how do you get things done?""Hmmmm? I can. Just not for too long. And if I need anything done I'll just send Jack.""Who that?""One of my lead performers, like Queen. There are three of them. King is always by my side. Always. Queen manages things that I can't be bothered with in Wano and Jack is the one I send out when shit needs to get done. If it's not something important I'll use the Tobiroppo but those little bastards are unreliable at best.""Must be pretty boring.""You wouldn't believe...""And that boy of yours gets things done good?""Who, Jack? Wororo. My All-Stars are all like natural disasters! There is NOTHING that could stand in their path!"You look down at the overly-large sake cup in front of you and down the whole thing before smiling at Kaido."That fat guy was not too impressive. I bet I could take him!"Kaido momentarily looks up from his gourd and leans forward."Really? I don't see it. Care to put that to the test?""What do you have in mind?""You see that ring down there? Queen is a big fan of sumo and wrestling. He sets up a stage and has the boys duke it out for his amusement. You could show your prowess there. I must say I'm kinda interested to see how you perform. You could take on a few gifters, see what they are about. Or if you're up to the challenge you could go up against one of the Tobiroppo. That should be more around your weightclass. Most of them used to be the captain of their own crew before joining me. So? Want to put your money where your mouth is?">Nah. Not in the mood>Okay! How many goons do you want me to beat up?>Hell yeah! Gimme your strongest Toblerone!>Other?
>>5158443>>Hell yeah! Gimme your strongest Toblerone!
>>5158443we are so going to get wrecked.>>Hell yeah! Gimme your strongest Toblerone!
>>5158443>Hell yeah! Gimme your strongest Toblerone!Does this confirm the existence of switzerisland?
Aw yeah. It's crumpin time!Now I just gotta figure out which of the two dinguses I picked will be so luckyMaybe I'll toss a coin>writing
>>5158491Oh and dumb monke brain forgot the diceGive me 3d10+4 best of 3, dc 20, crit 27
Rolled 5, 1, 4 + 4 = 14 (3d10 + 4)>>5158494

Rolled 7, 10, 4 = 21 (3d10)>>5158494here you go
Rolled 4, 1, 8 + 4 = 17 (3d10 + 4)>>5158494
>>5158494Man we just cannot crit in the presence of the gigachad himself.
>>5158502You play a dangerous game my friend.
"Hell yeah! Bring me your strongest Toblerone! I'll kick their butts!""Wororo! Very well then! Get down there. Queen is going to set you up!"Jumping down to the lower level you walk up to the big man and start tugging on his pants to get his attention."Hey. Fattie!""Hmmmm? I'm not fat you little rascal! This is all muscle you see?"You give his thigh a slap and conclude that this is a lie."Anyway what do you want? Can't you see that I'm a bit busy at the moment?""I wanna fight!""Hohooo! Really? Muhahaha! Interesting. Alright! I'll tell the gifters to wrap it up quick. How many are you taking on?""Just one. A Tobiroppo.""Oh..."The fat man smiles through his lipstick."AWRIIIIGHT!"After a few minutes the so called Gifters finish their little brawl. You tried paying attention to them but it wasn't interesting enough. You did notice that their abilities seemed a little bit weird even for you but you don't care. Once they are done Queen begins his presentation."HOW ARE YOU DOING ONIGASHIMA?! I got a special treat for you today! Somebody decided to issue an official challenge to some of our most beloved Captains elite! Please WEEELCOOOOME our challenger! Cavalier Silver!"As you walk up on the stage and wave to the booing crowd Queen shuffles up to you and starts whispering."Hey. Psssst. I couldn't get any of the assholes to show up so I told him you were talking shit about him. Good luck!""What?""AND YOU KNOW WHO HE IS! He serves as one of Kaidos most faithful! He proved his strength time and time again, ravaging all those who dare to stand up to us! Please welcome the terror that was lost to time! The scourge of the prehistoric world! The biggest, meanest lizard you'll ever meet PAAAGE OOONE!"As he says the name of your opponent you hear loud footsteps approaching until a massive beast breaks through one of the walls and lets out a roar that makes your stomach quake."RAAAAAAAAAAWR! WHERE IS HE?! WHERE IS THE BASTARD?!"The monsters bloodshot eyes spot you and his whole body starts moving."YOU! WHAT DID YOU CALL MY MOTHER?!""WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH! A DINOSAUR! A REAL DINOSAUR! WHEEEEEE!""RAAAAA-"
The dinosaur stomps towards you and jumps on stage like how an alligator out of the water to take a bit out of its prey on land. Page One, weird name, chomps down on you intent on tearing you apart with his teeth. The sound of his jaw shutting makes the crowd fall silent before they erupt with a tidalwave of cheers. However Page One does not share their enthusiasm as he feels his jaws slowly being pushed apart until his mouth opens and you peek out from between his teeth. Seeing your chance you turn into a bat and fly out through the opening before popping back up and wiping yourself clean."Phew! That was scary. Your breath stinks!"His body shifts around as he enters his hybrid form, becoming much smaller, only about twice your height. He starts gritting his teeth as he glares at you."Better get used to it then! That's where you'll spend your last moments!"From that bite you know that his strength is the real deal so you see no point in holding back. Following suit you transform into your hybrid state as well and the two of you exchange a few threatening roars and screams before you go at each others throats. Biting, clawing, punching and kicking each other you start to draw a lot of blood and the crowd watches with vested interest. You got speed on your side but he has bulk. So while you punch him five to six time he manages to land one kick that deals just about the same amount of damage. Once you decided that playtime is over you start grappling with the humanoid dinosaur.Strength goes up against strength as your wings wrap around his arms and you try to push him out of the ring and he does the same. Neither of you makes much progress before your legs start slipping so you break up the hold and go in for the kill. Both of you had the same idea. Deck the other in the face while falling. So two smacks are delivered and two bodies are sent flying in opposite directions. You hit a pillar holding up the upper level with your back while Page One breaks another wall with his. He rises first and shifts back into his dinosaur form."Not yet!""Kekeke! Here comes the fun part!"You start shifting your body when you hear Queens voice through the loudspeakers."OUT! Sorry pals but it looks like both of you went out of bounds around the same time. So the match ends with a tie. How lame!""Screw that! This guy dies for what he said about my mother!"The large spinosaurus stats charging towards you with palpable killing intent.>"Hey! I didn't say anything!">"I always wanted to see if I can beat a dinosaur!">Other?
>>5158540>"Hey! I didn't say anything!"
>>5158540>"Hey! I didn't say anything!">I didn't even know you had a mother
>>5158540>>"I always wanted to see if I can beat a dinosaur!">I didn't even know you had a mother
Silver will be a nice boy and won't escalate the conflict>writing
You dodge out of the way by taking to the sky and you start shouting at the overgrown lizard."Hey! I didn't say anything! I didn't even know you had a mother!""Bullshit!"You point at the lardass laughing his ass off and Page One squints at him."Queen! I should've known.""Muhahahahah! Sorry Paypay! Come on don't give me that look! What's a harmless little prank between buds? We're all friends here, right?""Tch. Choke on your own tongue you fat bastard!"The dinosaur starts walking away still looking like an ancient beast when you stop him."What do you want?""Hey! You're strong! Page One, right? We'll settle this one sometime later."The lizard gawks at you before blushing and awkwardly looking away."Y-You too."He mutters before waddling away.Similarly you fly back to Kaido who seems pleased by what you've shown him. He smashes his gourd on the ground as he laughs."Hah! Not bad. Not bad at all! Matching an ancient zoan in a test of raw strength is a good start! But you still require a lot of work.""I could've kicked his ass. I haven't used the full power of a bat yet.""Oh? Interesting. But don't underestimate Page One or the true power of the dinosaurs. Those ancient beasts ruled the world for a reason! Which he hasn't shown you yet.""So ancient Zoans have tricks up their sleeve?""Maybe. Worororororo! But let's just say that there is a reason why they are the intermediary between regular zoans like you and mythical ones like myself!"You decide to cut the partying short after that as you felt it necessary to lick your wounds a little. One more night here should be enough. Then it would be smart to return home. After making sure that you won't bleed out in your sleep you hit the hay early. Unfortunately something or someone has other plans and has the audacity to disturb your sleep. Hearing loud thumping and grunting you decide to look into the matter and kindly ask the one responsible for this disturbance to die. However when you fly out towards the source of the loud noise you find quite a peculiar sight as a man in a white kimono is lifting a giant boulder over his head before dropping it on the ground. Yamato then repeats the action of picking up the rock, lifting it above his head a few times and then dropping it back down."What are you doing?""Training. What does it look like.""Why?""Because I -HNNNNG- am Kozuki Oden! And that means -HNNNG- that I must be the strongest. And until I beat that shitty dad of mine I can't be that."He drops the rock on the ground."So I need to get stronger."You cock your head to the right in confusion."I thought your name is Yamato.""My name IS Yamato. But I am KOZUKI ODEN!"He strikes a queer pose."What's a kozukioden? Is that one of those sex things people keep telling me about?"
>>5158597>"What's a kozukioden? Is that one of those sex things people keep telling me about?"Might have to ask the whores back on Outer Heaven to be sure but if I'm not mistaken that one involves 2 live salmon, a bucket of grease, a small steel rod and costs triple the usual rate.
"You don't know about the glory of Kozuki Oden?! Then I have a story to tell you!""No thanks. Not interested in bedtime stories now.""Hmph. Suit yourself."He goes back to lifting the rock."By the way. I saw you fighting Page One.""Nice!""That's not a compliment. You are a terrible fighter. If Queen did not stop the fight you would've been killed.""Nah! No way. Dinosaurs are strong but I'm way stronger! I could've kicked his butt!""Uh-huh.""But wait. You've been watching me?""Of course. I wanted to know what my fathers latest goon was up to. I got that and more. Now I know your strength.""I don't work for Kaido.""It does not matter what you think. There are two kinds of people working with my father. Those that are smart enough to know that they are being used and those that aren't. To him you are nothing but something to be exploited. No matter what you think.""Nah. You just say that like how they say that about Big Mom. They are both really nice. Scary, strong, like a yonko should be. But they are very friendly!""Big Mom? What do you know about her?""I met with her on her island. She gave me all sorts of milk. Then we ate a bunch of sweets together. She's a very sweet granny. Even if a bit murderous."Yamato pauses his lifts and just glares at you with that huge rock over his head."By the way why are you talking like that about your dad?""Why? Because that shitty old man is a bastard. That's it. If I could forget that I'm related to him I'd be content. But he doesn't let me. He reminds me every day how he's my father. A most grave insult towards Kozuki Oden.""Don't say that. You don't want to forget who your dad is.""Hmmmm."Yamato sets down the rock and sits next to it."You're a strange one. Not at all like Ace was.""Firefist?""Yes. Despite only knowing him for a day I mourned his death. He was a great man. You know he told me about the current rookies of the world. But he did not tell me about you, which I find a bit strange.""When was that?""Four years ago.""I started a bit over two years ago. Was not a pirate before.""I see. That would explain it. Hmmmm. Well you do have one thing in common with him. You are a pirate like he was. Have you had many adventures at sea?""You bet.""Would you mind sharing some of them with me then? I've lived here all my life and only know things about the outside world from the newspaper. What kind of islands did you visit on your travels?">Tell him what he wants to know>You don't like this guy. He can get bent>Other?
>>5158631>Tell him what he wants to knowSilver knows the value of a good story, even if this guy's a bit of a prick.
>>5158631>Tell him what he wants to know>so there was this crab>and and and this huge desert>a pile of corpses too>but THEN a tax ship>oh and I torched the holy land
>>5158631>>Tell him what he wants to know
>>5158631>Tell him what he wants to knowWe may not be interested in your bedtime stories, however! >>5158639 Yes.Also just say the word Kozukimoto or whatever the name is today *cracks knuckles* and I bet we could give you a better workout then that rock if you don't believe we could have taken down that cool dinosaur
>>5158631>>Tell him what he wants to knowdraw him some pictures with the emergency crayons stored in the hollow part of the bone arm
>>5158631>Tell him what he wants to know
"Hmmmmm. Okay!"You activate a mechanism in your arm which makes it unfold and reveal that some of the hollow bones have emergency crayons in them. Taking a few in hand you walk towards the boulder."Let's begin!"You get started at the beginning with a tale of common bandits and move up from there, naturally with visual aid for each of them. Yamato pulls up his knees and holds them close to his chest as he watches you."And as you can see after Flip Flop Island with Crabo we moved to Windy Windy Island where we found these cool bugs!""Ah I see! I thought they were crabs from the crab island.""Nope. See? Marauder isn't a crab. More like a bug that lives in the water! Or well... sand. Here. Hold him for a bit and pay attention! Here's where it gets good!"After that you tell him about another deserty island where you found a big hole full of corpses, a tax ship carrying money, Water 7 and Enies Lobby."Phew!""I-Is that all?"He sounds desperate."No. Thirsty!"You sit down next to him and take a bottle of water out. Looking down at the crayons lying on the ground Yamato picks them up and moves to the rock."HEY!""Rest. Now I'll tell you about the adventures of Kozuki Oden to show you why he was the greatest to ever live!""No he isn't. I never heard of him.""He is!""No he isn't!""Kozuki Oden served on the ship of the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger himself! What do you say to that?""Bullshit. Also if he served him then that means he's not the best! The pirate king is! HAH!""Grrr! I'll show you!"Now it's Yamatos turn to draw doodles on the rock. He has a different art style from yours but he's no match to you in terms of quality. At first. Then you start to worry."Shit Marauder! This guy is good!"Your pet crab just cocks his head because to him both look like hideous scribbles."-and so when the Mountain God attacked Kozuki Oden leapt into action and cut the mountain sized pig in half! His attack was so clean and so strong they could easily stitch the Mountain God back together like it was nothing!"You raise your hand."Yes?""That did not happen.""IT SO DID!""NO IT DIDN'T! Pigs die if you kill them! You can't just glue them back together! I TRIED!""WELL MAYBE YOU JUST AREN'T AS GOOD AS KOZUKI ODEN!""WHATDIDYOUSAY?!""You heard me! You're just a big weenie who couldn't even touch the mountain god!""I SO CAN!"As you continue shouting at each other Marauder starts shaking in his shell and he rolls up into a ball in fear.
After figuratively and literally butting heads for over an hour you finally manage to finish up your little story. Unfortunately you only manage to get to the lost Jade City because you ended up angrily eating your crayons halfway through arguing."Huh. I... did not expect that.""And I got plenty more where that came from. IF ONLY I STILL HAD MY CRAYONS!""I said I'm sorry okay?"Feeling victorious you let out an angry puff and sit down to play with your pet crab to calm your nerves a little."But... why do you want to join my father then?
