"It seems that you do cause chaos. Though, if they argue this much over your choice, I can't wait to see what else could come."
Darrel: You think THIS is bad? You haven't seen Vex.
(Or as we like to call him...that grandstanding, master villain, ancient spirit of evil, Massacre. Still, Takeshi pulled himself out of Iocuvani's grip to stand before Hayate. She went a little as he put her arms around her.)
"I know that you're looking out for me. Now let me do what I need to."
Hayate: Of course...
(The young mage let go and turned to the big eye-god. Hmmm... Big Eye? Was that anything like Big Ear from Big O, or are we asking for too much here? Then again, for all we know, Iocuvani was responsible for Paradigm City, somehow. Well, it wouldn't exactly surprise us if that mindscrew didn't have a chaos god's hand...or whatever...in it. Anyway, Takeshi was accepting the offer, but he was also threatening to make the big god's immortal life a living hell if he tried to possess the boy, make him act against his will against those he cared about. That was pretty cool, actually. If only Jackal appreciated the weight of such a statement and didn't do something stupid, like attack him.)
"I will have my VICTORY! Now give me your blood!"
(Seriously, he was surrounded by people who support him and a god that seems to like him. Why would this gambit even work? Tiberius took care of Jackal this time. And with that, the chaos god was able to place his runes upon Takeshi, increasing his...hmmm. What DID they do, exactly?)
Soooo are we done here or?
Sara: Good question. Are we done here?
Grim: Well, unless Iocuvani wants something more, I'd say yes.
Hayate: Will you be withdrawing at this time, Iocuvani?
Didn't you know?
