  2. (2:13:38 PM) Mishie|Johnny: Whelp
  3. (2:13:43 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny looks at Ai
  4. (2:14:04 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "I don't really have anything else planned for this afternoon, so why don't you tell us a bit more about this challenge of yours"
  5. (2:14:08 PM) Darkened: The old man waits for you to dece.
  6. (2:14:11 PM) Darkened: decide*
  7. (2:14:14 PM) You are now known as DarkenedHG
  8. (2:14:44 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Not much fun playing a game where you don't know the rules"
  9. (2:14:47 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Or the stakes"
  10. (2:14:51 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Or anything really"
  11. (2:15:25 PM) DarkenedHG: He shrugs, "what's there to explain really?"
  12. (2:15:53 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Prooooobably those things that I just said"
  13. (2:15:54 PM) DarkenedHG: "If you want something, go get it and bring it here. Then we'll see what I can sell it for."
  14. (2:16:28 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "And that's it"
  15. (2:18:02 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Honestly, it's no fun if you're going to be like this, at least tell us the interesting part"
  16. (2:18:26 PM) DarkenedHG: "That's it."
  17. (2:18:31 PM) DarkenedHG: "Nothing more, nothing less."
  18. (2:18:42 PM) DarkenedHG: "You look, you find what you desire and then we see what happens next."
  19. (2:22:57 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Gotta say, you're not really doing a great job of selling me on this"
  20. (2:23:47 PM) DarkenedHG: He shrugs, "Let the store do that. If you're not up for a chance then I can't say I have any interest in you."
  21. (2:23:56 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny sighs
  22. (2:24:12 PM) DarkenedHG: "So get going or come in."
  23. (2:24:18 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Well then, when you put it like that, guess I might as well have a look for funsies"
  24. (2:24:22 PM) ***TWM|Ai raises her eyebrow. "So, it is the store, or you that sell the stuff?"
  25. (2:24:48 PM) DarkenedHG: He chuckles darkly, "Now that's the question isn't it?"
  26. (2:24:56 PM) DarkenedHG: Then he puts his head down and starts to snore.
  27. (2:25:32 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Whelp"
  28. (2:25:42 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "This is awkward"
  29. (2:29:13 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "You should poke him Ai"
  30. (2:29:34 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Nothing can go badly at all"
  31. (2:31:17 PM) ***TWM|Ai shrug, and pokes the merchant. "Hey, wake-up."
  32. (2:31:57 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Guess it's time to run the gauntlet then"
  33. (2:32:07 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny walks on over to the door and opens it for Ai
  34. (2:32:10 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Ladies first"
  35. (2:34:33 PM) ***TWM|Ai sighs. "You just want me to become the bait, didn't you?" Ai says, grumbling, then enter the door.
  36. (2:35:11 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny follows after Ai
  37. (2:37:21 PM) DarkenedHG: The inside is a maze of narrow corridors stacked side to side with a mess of unorganized things, nick-nacks and treasures balanced precariously around each other without rhyme or reason, the shelves rise oppressively high and are overloaded as if one solid push might send the whole thing crashing down on you.
  38. (2:38:12 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Well this is a thing"
  39. (2:38:25 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny starts to wander through the corridors
  40. (2:38:39 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "See anything interesting Ai?"
  41. (2:38:44 PM) ***TWM|Ai folows behind Mishie|Johnny, this time.
  42. (2:38:54 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "And you want me to keep an eye out for porn for you?"
  43. (2:39:03 PM) ***TWM|Ai hmms. "Not that I can see. And no. Porn is impure."
  44. (2:39:12 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "I think we all know what you're wanting from here'
  45. (2:39:18 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "It's kay, no judgement"
  46. (2:39:40 PM) DarkenedHG: The shelves seem to swell as they talk and Ai finds herself buried under a deluge of dirty magazines.
  47. (2:39:53 PM) TWM|Ai: "I prefer romance, to be honest. Kinda why I pick the job and... oh."
  48. (2:40:12 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "And today was now worth it"
  49. (2:40:14 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "10/10"
  50. (2:40:37 PM) ***TWM|Ai set the magazines aside. "Well, this is interesting. Hmm... might as well check the magazines."
  51. (2:42:40 PM) DarkenedHG: Ai finds herself enthralled, so much lewd hand-holding, quiet whispers and forbidden love, so much romance! So much...
  52. (2:43:08 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Well, as much fun as it is to watch your discover porn, I'm going to look for something interesting"
  53. (2:43:26 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny decides to head out to where the most danger is, because hey, that has to be where the good shit is right?
  54. (2:45:03 PM) ***TWM|Ai blinks. "Well, that's interesting. Hey Johnny! Catch this!" she throws the magazine to Johnny.
  55. (2:46:37 PM) ***TWM|Ai says, "Tell me what you see!"
  56. (2:47:10 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny grabs the magazine and has a quick look
  57. (2:47:16 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Oh hey, it's tits"
  58. (2:47:22 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "What a tweest"
  59. (2:47:39 PM) TWM|Ai: "Other than tits?"
  60. (2:47:46 PM) DarkenedHG: And yet as Johnny looks he finds himself more and more drawn in.
  61. (2:48:15 PM) ***TWM|Ai observe Johnny reaction. "That must be great tits, huh?"
  62. (2:48:27 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "You mean apart from the magical compulsion to make it more interesting?"
  63. (2:49:06 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Because that was a thing on the other shit I uh, borrowed from that guy"
  64. (2:49:09 PM) TWM|Ai: "Yeah, but I'm more interested with the price. So... assume I want to buy this," Ai points to the magazine. "What should I do, then?"
  65. (2:49:52 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Well Ai, traditionally people go to the checkout the buy things"
  66. (2:49:59 PM) Mishie|Johnny: (to*)
  67. (2:51:09 PM) ***TWM|Ai shakes head. "I mean, true price. Well, the checkout probably will tell the price." Ai ponders. "And, uh, I don't want to get in contract with murderous party. Just sayin'."
  68. (2:51:12 PM) DarkenedHG: Johnny doesn't seem able to put the magazine down, as if it's reaching out to him.
  69. (2:51:27 PM) DarkenedHG: As if it's making him want, it changing him to want it, pulling at his soul until this is what he desires.
  70. (2:52:36 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny tries to throw the magazine away
  71. (2:52:46 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Hey uh, Ai, do me a favor and knock this out of my hands..."
  72. (2:52:57 PM) ***TWM|Ai spawn another lily patches, and separate the magazine from John.
  73. (2:54:29 PM) DarkenedHG: The magazine is torn from Johnny's hands amidst a swirl of lillies and the connection is broken.
  74. (2:55:10 PM) ***TWM|Ai hmms. "The compulsion too strong for you?"
  75. (2:56:27 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "It's growing stronger"
  76. (2:56:29 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny looks around
  77. (2:57:24 PM) ***TWM|Ai nods. "Right, looks like it works by convinced the customer it really wants whatever it is, so... hmm. I'm gonna do something stupid. Stop me if it becomes too dangerous."
  78. (2:57:57 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Have fun"
  79. (3:05:31 PM) DarkenedHG: Johnny can sense that danger lies deeper in and alone.
  80. (3:06:16 PM) DarkenedHG: The further from, Ai the further from the center that he gets, the more risky things become. Parodixically, the closer he follows behind Ai, the more dangerous things become.
  81. (3:06:42 PM) DarkenedHG: Ai... Does not seem to immediately find what she's looking for.
  82. (3:07:22 PM) ***TWM|Ai sighs. "How about you are the one that looks, Johnny? You seems like the type."
  83. (3:10:55 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Hmmmmmm"
  84. (3:11:11 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "You stay there for a moment, if I start to act odd come on over mkay?"
  85. (3:11:26 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny starts to walk further into the maze away from the register and Ai
  86. (3:12:00 PM) DarkenedHG: The shelves turn, and if he follows he'll find himself away from Ai.
  87. (3:12:05 PM) DarkenedHG: Johnny can sense a massive spike in danger.
  88. (3:12:48 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Yo Ai, you think you could jump these shelves?"
  89. (3:13:42 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Cause uh, back in a biiiit"
  90. (3:13:49 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny follows the new section
  91. (3:13:59 PM) ***TWM|Ai quickly follows Johnny.
  92. (3:14:23 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny stares at Ai
  93. (3:14:26 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Really?"
  94. (3:15:03 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny stops where he is
  95. (3:15:21 PM) ***TWM|Ai rises her hands. "Alright, alright. Kinda worried there. Just... be careful."
  96. (3:15:26 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Well in that case, we'll do shit the boring way"
  97. (3:15:40 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Come with me, the further we get from the register the more dangerous it gets"
  98. (3:16:48 PM) ***TWM|Ai shrugs, and follows Johnny
  99. (3:18:23 PM) DarkenedHG: Marching deeper in, the feelings get more and more oppressive, glints of gold sparkle in the shelves drawing the eye.
  100. (3:18:24 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny whilst walking away from the register, Johnny keeps an eye out for anything interesting, whilst also monitoring how risky the various options are, although he decides not to mention to Ai that he's picking the most dangerous path each time
  101. (3:19:20 PM) DarkenedHG: Thoughts form unbidden, the strange leery store, far far larger than it should be demands conversation to fill the oppressive silence.
  102. (3:19:44 PM) DarkenedHG: And yet it pulls the strings of unhappiness and discontent, invites everyone to express a lack.
  103. (3:21:35 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Y'know, it would be nice if you actually did something for once instead of just standing around thinking about tits or whatever it is that you do"
  104. (3:25:44 PM) ***TWM|Ai shrugs. "I did. I want to find out how to release those girls from their contract. Maybe for other customers, too."
  105. (3:26:07 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Mhhhhhhhhhhm"
  106. (3:30:21 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Yeah, that's the thing right, you want to do things but well, you don't"
  107. (3:30:30 PM) DarkenedHG: Ai finds herself filled with new confidence.
  108. (3:30:56 PM) DarkenedHG: She wants... she needs to prove Johnny wrong and step forward! To lead the pace, to go go go, more, brighter, more energetic, in charge!
  109. (3:36:32 PM) ***TWM|Ai exclaims. "But they are in love! I can't just left them hanging!"
  110. (3:39:20 PM) ***TWM|Ai snorts. "Beside, what'd you do anyway? Just gambling, letting things... be?"
  111. (3:39:30 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Wait, they're in love with each other or somebody else?"
  112. (3:39:44 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Because I thought they were trying to impress some boy or whatever"
  113. (3:40:08 PM) TWM|Ai: "...well, someone else. Not to each-other. But I still can't leave them be."
  114. (3:40:26 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Can't leave them how?"
  115. (3:40:35 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "What exactly are you planning this time Ai..."
  116. (3:41:31 PM) TWM|Ai: "I'll get their contract and and nulls it!"
  117. (3:41:52 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "And then?"
  118. (3:42:38 PM) TWM|Ai: "We'll kick the merchant away!" Ai stops. "Not exactly sure how that will goes..."
  119. (3:42:50 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "mhm"
  120. (3:48:06 PM) TWM|Ai: "And you never do long-term romance!" Ai says. "I want more holding-hands, dammit!"
  121. (3:48:20 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Are"
  122. (3:48:30 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Are you trying to flirt with me?"
  123. (3:48:40 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "I'm flattered but well, you're a bit young and tiny and no"
  124. (3:50:59 PM) DarkenedHG: Johnny... seems to be shrinking
  125. (3:51:22 PM) TWM|Ai: "Not to me!" Ai says. "Well, not necessarily with me! Someone else is fine, too!"
  126. (3:54:58 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny starts to notice his shirt feel a bit odd, but rolls his shoulders to get the odd cramp out
  127. (3:55:25 PM) DarkenedHG: The store shudders at that, as if offended.
  128. (3:55:45 PM) DarkenedHG: And a hole in the floor appears below Johnny.
  129. (3:56:42 PM) ***TWM|Ai moves, summoning another patches of lily to prevent Johnny from falling.
  130. (4:00:39 PM) Mishie|Johnny left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 244 seconds).
  131. (4:04:53 PM) TWM|Ai: "And now, you almost fall! To the hole! For some reason!"
  132. (4:08:30 PM) Mishie|Johnny [~chatzilla@] entered the room.
  133. (4:10:32 PM) DarkenedHG: (4:04:53 PM) TWM|Ai: "And now, you almost fall! To the hole! For some reason!"
  134. (4:12:23 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny looks down
  135. (4:12:51 PM) ***Mishie|Johnny moves off the lily to the floor
  136. (4:13:42 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Anyway, like I was getting at, the store is fucking with us, making some sort of feedback loop where it uses the desires of one of us to fuck with the other"
  137. (4:13:51 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Which then makes the other want to mess with the other more'
  138. (4:14:18 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Luckily neither of us wanted to do anything harmful to each other or things could have been awkward"
  139. (4:14:34 PM) TWM|Ai: "Well, alright." Ai concedes. "But I still need to find how to nulls the contract!"
  140. (4:14:47 PM) Mishie|Johnny: "Hopefully now that this is over with, we can actually get to whatever is at the end of this maze"
