  1. [00:12:22] <Nagare_Shinobu> Shinobu, being Shinobu, attempts to drown out his thoughts in practically the only way he knows: by practicing the use of his weapons, but this time, it's the Killing Edge that Vena gave him when she picked up the King (Queen?) Sword. As anyone that actually uses a sword could tell, he really sucks at using a sword. Crippling Overspecialization, anyone?
  2. [00:15:21] <Krauss> "Oi Oi, Johan, you're doin it all wrong." Leaning in from seemingly out of nowhere came Krauss, still scratching at his arm a bit after that fight with Vena. "You're lookin a lot like Jones did the first time we met."
  3. [00:15:29] <Krauss> "Fixin to become a brain muncher?"
  4. [00:18:21] <Nagare_Shinobu> "... shut up, Krauss," His patience lost, Shinobu decides to stop swinging the sword for now, but does not sheathe it. Yet. "You don't look to be that much better off than you were the last time I saw you." He turns to face the Swordmaster! Samurai? Swordmaster. Kensei? Swordmaster.
  5. [00:19:57] <Krauss> "Yeah I'm doin the same old same old. I like to keep it this way. Made a new sword stance though, pretty good if I have to say." Warning, Astra potentially incoming.
  6. [00:20:23] <Krauss> "Want some tips on form? Don't stop swingin on my account, unless you're embarrassed or something."
  7. [00:25:45] <Nagare_Shinobu> Might as well step down. "... sure, works with me. I'm just... trying to keep my mind off of some things. May as well try learning something while I'm at it."
  8. [00:26:32] <Krauss> "Now that's the spirit. Let me see you swing then, and while you're at it, feel free to speak your mind if it'll help. I find clearing my head whie taking practice swings to be pretty good for the technique."
  9. [00:26:36] <Krauss> (Be right back, food)
  10. [00:33:07] <Krauss> (I return)
  11. [00:33:08] <Nagare_Shinobu> man
  12. [00:33:23] <Nagare_Shinobu> this is gonna be pretty bad but w/e
  13. [00:40:02] <Nagare_Shinobu> Speaking one's mind... perhaps maybe it was better to release it, rather than store it. Taking a step forward, Shinobu brings his edge sharply diagonally downwards from the right, then turning his wrists to slash upwards, at a shallower angle than the last one.
  14. [00:42:19] <Krauss> "Now that's a good swing. See, you're probably just thinking about it, but you're already lookin much better than a few second ago. Here, let me help." Walking over to draw his sword all the same, Krauss went to make the same motions himself, though just a bit different in that he started from the less side, which notably was not making use of his dominant hand if you'd notice.
  15. [00:48:47] <Nagare_Shinobu> Swing. Repeating the motions from last time! "... you don't seem to be using the same side you usually use when fighting. Why the change?"
  16. [00:50:20] <Krauss> "Nothing in particular, just figured I'd work on my weak side. Might help in a pinch." Casually advice while pretending to practice for his own sake.
  17. [00:50:32] <Krauss> (more typos)
  18. [00:51:12] <Nagare_Shinobu> s'not that big of a typ2o man
  19. [00:51:17] <Nagare_Shinobu> ... amazing i made my own
  20. [00:51:42] <Krauss> This is in fact a slight prompt for you to be following the same motions. He's seen you swing a sword, and given he's kind of a master, you can probably trust that he knows where your shortcomings are.
  21. [00:54:26] <Nagare_Shinobu> I was about to say? "Ensuring that neither side isn't completely defenseless, huh? Guess I'd never have that problem with shuriken, but swords are a lot different." Shinobu mimics Krauß's swings, albeit more slowly, so as to get used to not taking advantage of his dominant hand.
  22. [00:55:00] <Nagare_Shinobu> amazing
  23. [00:55:21] <Nagare_Shinobu> that first question mark is s'posed to be a period
  24. [00:58:58] <Krauss> I'm spreading the virus. God help us all.
  25. [00:59:55] <Nagare_Shinobu> nah man
  26. [01:00:12] <Krauss> "...That they are." The motions would continue, but after waiting for a bit for Shinobu to get used to it, he'd speed it up, but only a tad. "So what's on your mind. Anything you mind sharing with a fellow swordsman?" The fact he considers you a fellow swordsman shouldn't surprise you normally, but for some reason it appeared rather sincere this time around.
  27. [01:00:16] <Krauss> So lucky you I suppose.
  28. [01:04:44] <Nagare_Shinobu> There's a slight pause in Shinobu's slashes, right when he would bring the sword back up, as he registers what the Swordmaster just called him. He resumes right after. "Just... wanting to tell someone something. Don't worry about it, Krauss." Great idea, Shinny. This is why you're the "best".
  29. [01:07:59] <Krauss> "Lookin for love? That's the first that springs to mind when I hear stuff like that, and trust me, it ain't the first time I've heard something like that from someone." Wether he his mark or not, he made it apparent he was curious enough to pry a bit. He'd back off if you really didn't want to talk, but his eyes had that curious spark.
  30. [01:10:30] <Nagare_Shinobu> Definitely a bull's eye. "... something like that. Heard that from your brother, too, or...?"
  31. [01:22:25] <Krauss> "Something like that." The same line back to you. "So who's the lucky girl. Got a name? Or you too shy to reveal that sort of thing."
  32. [01:22:36] <Krauss> "I ain't that stabby lady is it? Oh man, that'd be funny."
  33. [01:23:03] <Krauss> (typos never truly end)
  34. [01:23:06] <Krauss> (They are eternal)
  35. [01:23:15] <Nagare_Shinobu> Indeed.
  36. [01:28:45] <Nagare_Shinobu> The ninja "heh"s mid-swing. "You mean Vena? Who'd marry someone like that, her boss? Since you probably wouldn't care, her name's Norn. Y'know, the one whose big sis is the leader of those guys defending Acaiah?" Sure, let's disregard that he's probably a few years older than the girl, too.
  37. [01:32:05] <Kotta> kono rorikon domome
  38. [01:32:42] <Krauss> "Oh..." Huh, guess it was someone he didn't know after all. Weird. He was totally expecting it to be Vena, but whatever. "So what's the deal then, you out here tryin to work up the courage then? I know someone like that. Can't say I have much advice to give though, I'll listen to your woes though."
  39. [01:35:55] <Nagare_Shinobu> Krauss SURE DOES KNOW SOMEONE LIKE THAT. I laughed, man. "Nah, nothing like that. Just... okay, so pegasi apparently have some strict codes of maidenhood or whatever, so Pegasus Knights can't get with guys, or else their mount leaves them. Thing is... they'll allow their rider to get with a guy... but only on one condition." Also stops swinging. Keeps the
  40. [01:35:55] <Nagare_Shinobu> sword readied, though!
  41. [01:41:01] <Krauss> "Oh the whole true love thing, right? Heard a story about that before once actually. Something about a dude willing to throw his life away for the sake of his girl, pretty touching if you ask me. The horse went crazy and threw the gal off, and wouldn't you know, the guy jumped off too!"
  42. [01:41:51] <Krauss> "Seems like stories like that are pretty common though, so who knows how much of it's true."
  43. [01:42:01] <Krauss> "Either way I guess you'll just have to find out, huh?"
  44. [01:44:11] <Nagare_Shinobu> Yeah, that. "Yeah, that." He nods! "Guess love makes you do crazy things, huh? It's my only shot at it, though. And who knows if any of us will ever see each other again, after this?" Maybe she'll find someone else. Who knows?
  45. [01:45:43] <Krauss> "Got a point there. Guess you better pick up the pace then, kid. You wouldn't want to miss your chance while you have it. If you ever forgot...I'm sure you'd never forgive yourself. Assuming your feelings are true." There was a bit of a sad tone in the voice. Could it be? Nah, probably not, he's probably just tired or something.
  46. [01:46:22] <Krauss> (Missing a word there, but you can probabably tell what it is)
  47. [01:49:31] <Nagare_Shinobu> Yeah, he's definitely tired. Fucking up a giant monster is pretty tiring! "Who're you calling a kid? I'm 19. But... I getcha. Thanks for the advice, Krauss." Makes you wonder if Krauß'll ever accept Tielle's love--
  48. [01:59:29] <Krauss> "In the art of swordplay, I'd say you're still a kid, so put up with it for me, will ya? And no problem. I'm always willing to listen to the problem of a fellow swordsman, gotta uphold that creed you know? Not that there really is one in specific."
  49. [01:59:50] <Krauss> After finishing that line, Krauss picked up the past, albeit a bit more drastically, actually hold up what is he doing.
  50. [02:00:26] <Nagare_Shinobu> He picked up the past, that's what.
  51. [02:00:29] <Krauss> Attacking the air at blinding speed, he casually does the same motions shown earlier when he spammed astra a few dozen times. If you were still following along, you likely started to do the motions, but either gave up halfway, or fell over like an idiot.
  52. [02:04:13] <Krauss> oh woah
  53. [02:04:15] <Krauss> I didn't even notice that
  54. [02:04:18] <Krauss> Holy shit
  55. [02:04:21] <Krauss> That's not even a typo
  56. [02:04:25] <Krauss> The whole line is just completely wrong
  57. [02:04:29] <Krauss> that was actually for the other thing
  58. [02:04:51] <Krauss> it's "pace"
  59. [02:04:53] <Nagare_Shinobu> Shinobu cannot comprehend the true power of Astra! It's super effective! Doesn't even try following along. "Five slashes, all in one smooth motion... No training will ever teach me that, I'll admit. Still, that's giving me some inspiration." The sword... is sheathed for the time being!
  60. [02:04:56] <Krauss> I was writing past in something else.
  61. [02:05:03] <Nagare_Shinobu> I know, but "past" sounds funnier.
  62. [02:05:05] <Krauss> And I totally just did it twice.
  63. [02:05:50] <Krauss> Man, I'm super good at this.
  64. [02:12:47] <Krauss> it doe
  65. [02:12:49] <Krauss> does*
  66. [02:12:51] <Krauss> fuck
  67. [02:13:27] <Nagare_Shinobu> nice
  68. [02:17:31] <Krauss> After letting out a laugh from his apparent success, Krauss too put away his sword. "That all then? Seems like those were some minor troubles to me, but hey, it is what it is."
  69. [02:17:46] <Krauss> "Good show on those swings though, I said it before, but you certainly have the talent kid."
  70. [02:18:07] <Krauss> "Maybe you'll make a formidable opponent down the line."
  71. [02:19:56] <Nagare_Shinobu> "I might. Watch out when I am!" Shinobu gives his fellow swordsman a grin. "Who knows, I might even surpass you."
  72. [02:22:33] <Krauss> "If that happens, I'll catch right back up and show you up all the same." He grins back, holding out his arm for a friendly gesture. The non-bandaged one (Though the injury is pretty much fine at this point)
  73. [02:26:23] <Nagare_Shinobu> "Do your worst, then!" Friendly gesture... ACCEPTED.
  74. [02:26:31] <Nagare_Shinobu> aight so that a /B
