--Minor-sensei instructs Deirdre and Kanako

The shouting man laughs. "You can't fool me! That's just some old man you dredged up!"
Fuyutsuki begins tying the logrus tendril he is holding into a lasso.
Chloe looks bored. "Yes, I dredged up a man who does logrus-tendril crochet work. How clever of you."
--House Malkier shows off its impressive powers of observation.

Motoko then steps into an open space and opens her arms. "Beloved, I ask that you come and share your wisdom with us, that we might know the way in which these four monsters can be properly laid to rest, that they might not trouble the living and slay more of your children. Please come and enlighten us as to what must be done, Beloved."
The room brightens and grows warmer, and you can feel a presence, though you cannot see it. And you hear a voice, which echoes in your bones. BELOVED, I COME. AKARI, I WILL ANSWER YOUR DESIRE. YOU MUST GO TO THE PHOENIX, WHO DESTROYS THE OLD THAT THE NEW MIGHT COME OF IT. HE WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY TO FORCE THEM BACK INTO THE CYCLE OF DEATH AND REBIRTH, FROM WHICH ANNADIL YANKED THEM, BY THE POWER OF THE OUTSIDERS."
Akari flinches slightly from the impact of the voice. "Oh. Well.... Okay. The Phoenix, then."
Akari asks, "Is there...is there anything you'd like for me to do, Serpent?"
I WILL ASK A FAVOR OF YOU LATER, BUT AT THE PRESENT TIME, CLEANING UP THIS MESS IS MORE IMPORTANT.
Akari gulps slightly. "Um, okay. I'll keep that in mind."
There's a brief pause.
AND DON'T GO BUILDING ABYSS SUBS OUT OF MONKS AND GOING DIVING INTO THE ABYSS ANY TIME SOON.
"That won't be a problem. Not at all."
--- '"The Godserpent, Pt. III", starring Marlon Brando as the Serpent of Chaos...

Rei is presented with the babies, and smiles slightly, holding them to her chest. Then everything goes swirly again.
You are then subjected to round 2 of Gendo and Rei porn.
Chloe murmurs impassively, "At least this is a good sign that the vision is not being shaped by my own desires."
Naru says, "I don't think ANYONE, even them, would have wanted to watch that."
This is followed by round 2 of Rei giving birth, this time to a single wrinkly baby boy, Derith.
--- Oceanside Rebman Family Theatre

Random says, "unless they have Cohen the Barbarian in there, even if it does go sour, we should be able to bludgeon our way forward. I hope."
Random smiles. "Either way, we won't be bored, hey?"
Juri says, "I could take Cohen."
She says this with the sort of absolute assurance possessed by people who have, in fact, never met Cohen.
-- She Don't Know Cohen.

{Nanami Minor turns} Back to Kanako. "Anyway, ain't the point. Dad doesn't have the right to engage me to whoever he wants. Your dad does."
Kanako looks at Minor. "Of course he does, Minor. Legally."
Kanako asks, "How do you think Drake is forcing Sumire to marry Nanbara?"
Nanami Minor freezes up briefly. "Huh. Well." She pauses. "You're still a fucking whiner."
-- Not Debating 101

You are all flung around the interior of Big Mo by the impact of the explosion.
Random says, "....ow."
Nanami Minor falls down without hurting herself. Random and Suzuka both bang their heads hard and are stunned. Deirdre slams into a wall, things fall on her, and she passes out. This leaves Minor as the only conscious person in the vehicle as it is flung across a huge battlefield.
Minor sprints madly through the vehicle, heading for the controls. Big Mo smashes into the ground before she reaches them, but she's able to get it to wobble onto its feet and can start it moving off through shadow. Which might be a good idea, because it looks like the sun is going nova.
Nanami Minor seizes the control in a white-knuckled grip and Hellrides the mech through Shadow like a woman pursued by a sun going nova. "fuckinggoddamnshithellbitchrandom."
-- Why Endurance Is the Best Stat

Random leans on the wall and crosses her arms, sighing. "If I'd have thought it over longer, actually capturing him was more daunting a task than I had thought. He has no body, he merely possesses them."
Nanami Minor stares at Random. "How long have you known this?"
Random says, "the last few hours. We'd have needed some sort of soul-trapping device, which is hard to come by."
Random says, "well drat it all. Somebody punch me."
Deirdre . o O (Random, that was a really POOR choice of words)
Nanami Minor punches Random.
Random falls down.
-- Asking For It

Hanajima quickly straps hers on and gets some relief.
-- It was just a strap-on fan, really.

Tomos looks down at the healing potions, healing ring, and two suits of magical armor among the remaining items. "Why, I nearly think you ladies are trying to tell me something."
Hanajima claps her hands. "It is fate."
Faye says, "You can't get me more loot if you die first."
--Dividing KODT Loot

Random asks, "er... by the way... I hope I don't offend you by prying, but I saw this book of prophecies I am not quite familiar with back there, the Ashabine Prophecies. If I may inquire of their nature...?"
Chloe says, "They concern the rise of Johann, a fishmonger, and how he builds a seafood retail empire that spans five whole wards of Amber. The final book tells of how he is undercut by a rival chain, and his empire brought low by the Herring Special offered at Nordsee."
Random says, "....."
Random says, "They're prophecies, are they? Fishmonger Prophecies."
Chloe says, "Actually, a lot of prophecies refer to Fisher Kings."
Chloe says, "This one is just, well, more literal."
--Vital Clue? Or Red Herring?

She is very cute, with soft brown eyes and long wavy brown hair and a big bloody sword.
--Some people have interesting definitions of 'cute'

Shabazz says, "What does it say about a people whose Princes do things like keep the souls of the dead captive to power their constructs or slaughter entire nations because one of them lost a legitimate duel? Don't give me that holier than thou routine. As for me, I'm in this gig for the excitement. Or I would be if Random let me do something besides ride around in her pocket smelling her breadstick!"
Juri smiles just a tiny bit.
Random twitches.
Shiori raises her hands, and looks apologetic. "Sorry, sorry, my apologies..." She looks sheepish at Random and Juri.
Shabazz says, "But there's all sorts of deals which get made. And some of us just get shoved willy nilly into devices, but they're not my problem."
Aburatsubo is unable to resist asking, "Is it a very large breadstick?"
Shabazz says, "Not a very impressive breadstick."
Random twitches again.
Shiori says, "Now, Aburatsubo, you know that's not polite to ask out in public..." She coughs. "Anyway."
Juri says, "Well, I'm not looking for a breadstick in my companions, so it doesn't matter to me."
Aburatsubo says, "It's not the breadstick's size, but what you do with it that really counts."
--It really is just a breadstick. Honest.

Suzuka thinks about Utena. She thinks about Utena having to give up her very large, deadly blade that sets chaosians on fire. She heavily restrains herself from grinning madly and laughing.
-- If there was any doubt about her being the daughter of Loewen...
