Topic is -= Sleepless in Senshiville =-

[11:39] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Haruka and Michiru`
[11:39] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- rolls over in bed
[11:39] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Michi, what about Hotaru-chan?
[11:39] <Mdm_Maestro> I hope not.
[11:40] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I mean she *did* beat up Jedite every time eh got near him, and she has been acting weird lately
[11:40] * Mdm_Maestro yawns
[11:41] <Mdm_Maestro> Yes, but she was with us in chat.
[11:41] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> That's true. But she showed up later than everyone, after the movie.
[11:42] <Mdm_Maestro> Haruka, I've been pondering it all night.
[11:42] * Mdm_Maestro snuggles closer
[11:42] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Me too. Something ain't right with all this.
[11:43] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Damn. I can't move.
[11:43] <Mdm_Maestro> I'm tired too.
[11:43] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah well staying awake all night thinking about the weaknesses of your *friends* is f[BLEEP]king draining.
[11:44] <Mdm_Maestro> But we may have to go against any one of them, Haruka.
[11:44] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> rei.bot's scary tough. I don't think she can be killed.
[11:45] <Mdm_Maestro> We'll coem up with something, dear. Your problem is you're too headstrong at times. Rushing in when a more subtle approach will do.
[11:45] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Dude she just *stopped* Galaxia's starseed extractors. You slice her, she reforms. She can shapeshift. She's got infinite energy AND spiritual powers.
[11:46] <Mdm_Maestro> But she thinks, Haruka. Which means she reacts. Which means we can still manipulate her reactions. There's always a way to win.
[11:47] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I hate to say it, but how many times have *we( f[BLEEP]king won on our own. It's a sore point, but Mistress 9 caught us and so did Galaxia.
[11:47] <Mdm_Maestro> Only because there were factors we didn't plan on. Usagi. And Galaxia's true nature, for example.
[11:48] <Mdm_Maestro> The key is more planning and intelligence gathering.
[11:48] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Man I hate planning.
[11:48] <Mdm_Maestro> Only fools rush in, Haruka.
[11:51] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Michi, you're a s[BLEEP]tty cook, you pick on me all the time, and you're a neat freak...
[11:51] <Mdm_Maestro> Oh? (raises an eyebrow)
[11:52] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...and I'll rush in anywhere, as long as you're with me.
[11:52] <Mdm_Maestro> Likewise.
[11:53] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Minako and Xadium`
[11:54] * @Dr_Xadium is staring up at the ceiling
[11:54] <@Dr_Xadium> Mina... it's almost noon
[11:55] <C'est_la_V> ...
[11:55] <@Dr_Xadium> You usually get up by 11:30...
[11:55] <C'est_la_V> ...I don't see you getting up either.
[11:56] <@Dr_Xadium> I haven't slept.
[11:56] * C'est_la_V neither
[11:56] <C'est_la_V> X-chan, they're doing it again.
[11:56] <@Dr_Xadium> Mina, that's too much information.
[11:56] <C'est_la_V> Baka, stop being ecchi, that's not what I mean.
[11:57] <@Dr_Xadium> Sometimes it's hard to tell with you. Honestly.
[11:57] * C'est_la_V is not joking around
[11:57] <C'est_la_V> Haruka-san and Michiru-san... they're doing it again. Plotting things all by themselves.
[11:57] <@Dr_Xadium> ...
[11:58] <C'est_la_V> They NEVER learn. Whenever spit hits the plan, they circle the flagons and retreat into their own little world.
[11:58] * @Dr_Xadium won't bother correcting
[11:59] <C'est_la_V> It's like the rest of us are meaningless to them, it's their way or the byway...
[11:59] <@Dr_Xadium> Mina...
[12:00] <C'est_la_V> Keh. Back in the day Usagi-chan had us and Mamoru-san to balance Haruka-san, Michiru-san and Setsuna-san out, but now I'm the only one here...
[12:00] <@Dr_Xadium> You're not alone, Mina.
[12:01] <C'est_la_V> X-chan, no offense but you can't do anything against them.
[12:01] * @Dr_Xadium sighs
[12:02] <@Dr_Xadium> That aside, you're still not alone. There's Hotaru and rei.bot, Artemis, Chibusa and Tomoe. Maybe even Jedite.
[12:02] * C'est_la_V shakes her head.
[12:03] <C'est_la_V> rei.bot-chan is being neutral. Tomoe-san is too unstable, I don't trust him... Artemis thinks I'm *dead*, Chibiusa-chan looks out only for herself and so does Jedite... and Hotaru-chan...
[12:03] * C'est_la_V goes quiet.
[12:03] * @Dr_Xadium turns and hugs her close "Minako..."
[12:04] * C'est_la_V sighs
[12:05] <C'est_la_V> You think they'd learn after what happened with Galaxia, but all they do is rely on each other and shut us out. And I worry they'll do something stupid again... I respect them as people but as Senshi they stink when it comes to working as a team.
[12:05] <@Dr_Xadium> That's too harsh, Mina. They work well as a team... *their* team. They just don't work well with *your* team.
[12:06] <C'est_la_V> Yes but in battle teams have to work together... but now I don't even have a team...
[12:06] <@Dr_Xadium> :(
[12:06] <C'est_la_V> I'm really worried...
[12:07] * @Dr_Xadium runs his fingers through her hair "Try to get some rest, sweetheart."
[12:07] <C'est_la_V> You too... I think things are going to get spicy soon...
[12:07] <@Dr_Xadium> Sadly, I think you mean "dicey"...
[12:07] <C'est_la_V> That too...
[12:08] * C'est_la_V snuggles next to her husband and tries to sleep
[12:08] * @Dr_Xadium holds her, but cannot sleep
[12:08] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Hotaru and Chibiusa`
[12:09] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> hay horatru///
[12:09] <FireFly_9> I can't believe you made me take the cot, Chibiusa.
[12:09] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> sat da fack up, u kno i hava bed bak
[12:10] <FireFly_9> I find that claim highly spurious.
[12:10] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> i'ym passed horatru
[12:11] <FireFly_9> I noticed you hadn't slept.
[12:11] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> i kno u hatad elioz bat hi wuz da frist gui who laved mi
[12:11] <FireFly_9> He was just using you, Chibiusa. For his desires.
[12:12] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> bat elioz wazn't alweys lik dat
[12:12] <FireFly_9> Stockholm syndrome.
[12:12] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> lissen dimmit...

[12:13] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> hi wuz a gantelmen untal after nahlania cam bak

[12:14] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> rite it wuz lik sumting changed in ham n hi becam a ganstar rapper bed boi
[12:14] <FireFly_9> ...
[12:14] <FireFly_9> But you didn't stop seeing him...
[12:14] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> hshshs i lik bd boiz....
[12:14] <FireFly_9> Ugh.
[12:15] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> horatru i kno u dnt lik ham bat i at leest owa ham revange....
[12:15] <FireFly_9> I didn't like him. Indeed, I've wounded him on more than one occassion... but that level of savagery... I would not wish that on anyone, even him.
[12:16] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> horatru-chun, even tho i tret u lik sit sumtimes ur stal mai best frend...
[12:16] <FireFly_9> Because I see potential in you, Chibiusa-chan. And you were very kind to me in the past.
[12:16] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> itz da sam with mi an elioz...
[12:17] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> I went u 2 halp mi gat revange, horatru...
[12:23] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> i lave dham...
[12:24] <FireFly_9> Even if you were chasing after every man you saw? Clinging to people's legs and doing unmentionable things?
[12:24] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> deres who i went 2 plesure mi n who i luv its daffrent
[12:25] <FireFly_9> I don't really understand that. I always looked at love as a sacred commitment to one.
[12:25] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> lav n last ken b 2 saprite thangs
[12:26] <FireFly_9> ...I don't understand, but I can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to avenge someone you care for.
[12:27] <FireFly_9> I will help you.
[12:27] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> ^_^
[12:27] * FireFly_9 and Chibiusa shake hands
[12:30] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Artemis and Tomoe`
[12:31] * =^catablanca^= paces around the body, trying not to smell
[12:31] <=^catablanca^=> Whoever did this was savage...
[12:32] <GERMATOID> NO IT JUST LOOKS SAVAGE. THESE WERE SURGICAL CUTS.
[12:32] <GERMATOID> WHOEVER DID THIS DID THE CUTTING TO MAXIMIZE THE TIME HE WAS IN AGONY
[12:33] * =^catablanca^= looks at the pile of organs on the floor and winces
[12:33] <GERMATOID> THEY CUT HIM OPEN AND PULLED OUT ONE ORGAN AT A TIME SO HE COULD SEE HISMELF BEING EVISCERATED
[12:33] <=^catablanca^=> Unbelievable.
[12:35] <=^catablanca^=> I wish Minako was here...
[12:35] <GERMATOID> SHE'S ALIVE, YOU KNOW
[12:35] <=^catablanca^=> No she's not... she's dead...
[12:36] * GERMATOID SLAMS ARTEMIS WITH A CRESCENT WRENCH
[12:36] <=^catablanca^=> @_@
[12:40] <GERMATOID> THIS KILLER TOOK HIS TIME, DRAINED ALL THE BLOOD FROM THE BODY AND SAWED OUT THE CRYSTAL EVEN MORE CLEANLY THAN I DID THAT ONE TIME...
[12:42] <=^catablanca^=> Minako... alive?
[12:42] <GERMATOID> "MINAKO *IS* ALIVE"
[12:43] <=^catablanca^=> Minako's ALIVE!! (cries) Minako!!
[12:43] <GERMATOID> ARTEMIS, CALM DOWN! WE NEED THE CATMAN!
[12:43] * =^catablanca^= looks at tomoe, his eyes narrowing
[12:43] * =^catablanca^= is now known as The Catman
[12:44] * The Catman furls his cape around him dramatically
[12:44] <The Catman> Yes, now that my mind is clear, the Catman can use all the detectice skills he learned training the famous Sailor V to help crack this case!
[12:44] <GERMATOID> MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAAH!
[12:49] * The Catman sniffs the corpse
[12:49] <GERMATOID> THAT'S GROSS
[12:49] <The Catman> I can track the scent of the killer
[12:49] <GERMATOID> WHOA
[12:49] * @spiritflame changes topic to `rei.bot and jedite`
[12:49] * // J_Daito // appears in a haze of cool CGI
[12:50] * @spiritflame regards him curiously
[12:51] <// J_Daito //> Is this all what I think it is.
[12:51] <@spiritflame> now what will you do jedite
[12:57] <// J_Daito //> I... don't know.
[12:59] <@spiritflame> so there is hope for you yet
[13:00] * // J_Daito // enfolds himself in his cape and vanishes in a haze of cool CGI
[13:00] <@spiritflame> heh
[13:00] <@spiritflame> in another dream
*** Disconnected





 






It's been ages since I've read any mystery novel, not for lack of interest. This has more plot already than that two-hour "Coming of Princess Kakyu" musical. Muchas gracias & looking forward to the rest. You should get advertisers, capitalize on the traffic ;-)

I am completely floored Dr. X. This is better then most of the mystery novel's I've read!

Senshi Guardian [e-mail] • 11/01/04 09:27pm

Awesome

Mango-chan [e-mail] • 11/01/04 05:28pm

I agree; this is great stuff.

And as for who's responsible for this...

Between_the_Lines • 11/01/04 02:38pm

DAMN. XD
This is brilliant stuff. More of the same please!
