Adrinne: I've never heard any of this about wind, but it makes sense.
Fisk: Hm. Yeah. And yeah, it's the same here. Not... a demonic spirit, but a malevolent spirit, yeah. They get frustrated with endless wandering, and turn... well, malevolent.
Nomad: Yeah, sounds about it. Demonic, malevolent, still bad news for any soul wandering too close. (raises eyebrow and turns to Silver) Actually, I had a question.
Silver: What's the query?
Nomad: Is there really such a being in your folklore that stabs people from under bridges called The Buttstabber?
Silver: (blinks slowly, then with dead seriousness) Yes.
Silver: Well, technically its literal name is 'One Who Strikes From Below', but I suppose one could interpret that as the 'Stabber of Posteriors'.
Nomad: Now you're just playing with me.
Silver: :I Seriously?
If you're buried, then your spirit is trapped to your body for as long as it takes to completely decompose (so until there's not even a bone fragment left). Then your spirit is sorta just gone. It's the same situation if your body isn't given a proper funeral. So, if you're a sailor, you better not die at sea, for example.
Jesus Christ...that's brutal.
Q: Have you ever broken any bones?
Jake: I fell out of a tree once and fucked up my leg for a while, so that was a fun go. (thumbs up)
Jenna: I also broke a leg, but that was because I got shoved near some steps, and I was more focused on the nail that went into my arm. If you're watching this, Megan Crossley, fuck you and your marker-pen eyebrows. That could've gotten infected.
Jake: I swear down, those eyebrows were thicker than the planks her brain was made out of. And that nail shit was nasty, but it wasn't rusty, I guess?
Jenna: (slightly squeamish) At least there was that.
Nomad: I avoid getting into situations like that. Helps that I have a horse.
Silver: And I've been kept at arms length away from anything 'dangerous'. Even the few hunting parties I've been on involved aforementioned guards that go mad if I so much as cough funny.
auBella: (instantly thinking of blood) Nononononononononononononononononononononononononononono. No no. No no no. (pauses) No.
Jo: points This kid. She gets it." >.>
Aleck: cough "Nerd." cough
Jo: "Once you memorize fuck knows how many moons of Saturn you have NO grounds to call someone a nerd, you gigantic dork." :|
Jenna: Snakes and Astronomy (ok sign) Two of my favourite things!
Jake: Ohhhh kaká. Again? Excuse me, I'mma go get out of you nerds' way so you can talk shop. (flies out the window)
Jenna: (rolls eyes, unserious) Sorry about my brother, he's a hipster try-hard who thinks he's above us nerdy peons when in reality, he's just as nerdy about music and powers.
Jake: (from outside) I heard that!
Jenna: (smirking) I know.
Just to illustrate the fact that, yes, Amber has done this kind of shit before. :P
Amber, I love you (platonically), please go slap this Jason douchebag with every rotten fish you can find.
Jo: "Kid... If someone asks if you've done something you shouldn't have. Don't immediately point at your brother. That could be taken in ways you probably don't want it taken." :|
Jake: (immediately flies back in, almost as if he never really left) Why is it that whenever either of us says something like that, people think we're fucking or some gross-ass shit like that?
Jenna: (points at the quotes) Because we say and do dumb things that we know are innocent but have five different ways it can be taken, and people like twincest shipping way too much. (at Jake's miffed look) You know fully well that's the reality, Jay.
Jake: (flops onto the sofa grumpily) Stupid shippers and their stupid ships. You don't see normal siblings getting paired up, but nooooooo. Twins have to be fucking. We're not even identical for fuck's sake!
Jenna: I hate to say it, but as far as non-identical goes we're pretty similar...
Jake: (points to eyes and hair, the latter of which is currently nesting a few stray flames) With what, our 'colour palettes'? You sound like Dessei.
Jenna: Okay, you're just getting wound up now. Go get some coffee.
Jake: (groans) Fine. But this is dumb.
Jenna: Go. Coffee. Now.
Jake: (grumbles and leaves)
(five minutes later)
Jake: (glowering and sipping on his coffee, noticeably less hyperactive)
Jenna: (sipping a mocha) Okay, now where were we?
Jo: "Oh, God." After a pause "Pianos are worse. And they're harder to tune."
Aleck: "Out of tune instruments aren't the end of the w-"
Jo: "Look, dork, I don't ask for much. I just want shit to be in-key, alright?"
Jake: (coughs on coffee) Thank you! You know how many times I've tried to explain that to Jenna? (falsetto) "You only need to tune it, what's the big deal?" (normally) It still sounds fucking awful! And I don't have much experience with pianos, but I feel your pain there, mate.
Hey, you! You were missed, my dude. :D
Jo: "Ha. Oh boy. There's... There's quite a bit to choose from. I think the most illegal was intentionally running someone down with my motorcycle. That's uhm, that's straight up attempted murder. So yeah, I'm gonna go with that."
(raises hand) I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but who did you run down?
Jo: "You're only opinionated about pointless things, really. Like John Stewart being a better Green Lantern than Hal Jordan or the sin that is dipping french fries on milkshakes."
Aleck: Frowns "Potatoes. Do not. Belong. In ice cream."
auBella: Excuse me, which monster is dipping french fries in milkshakes?
Q: Is there a particular eating habit that you don't tolerate?
Jenna: It's not something I really thought about, but Fallon.
Jake: (snorts coffee out his nose) JEN!
Jenna: (shrugs) Didn't mean it that way, but I'm not sorry. What I meant was that Fallon has an unfortunate tendency to eat and drink very. Very. Loudly. Remember when we went to that pizza place?
Jake: And she had the slushie? Yeah, that was kinda weird. I mean, I wasn't bothered but we had a laugh over it.
Jenna: (sighs) What about you?
Jake: Nah, I'm chill with most shit.
Jake: Jen, let's be real, you've seen me eat. I'm not exactly 'take me to a fancy restaurant' material.
Jenna: (concedes) There must be something, though?
Jake: Uhhhhh, I don't know...People who don't use chopsticks when eating chopsticky food? It's part of the whole thing. Plus, eating with chopsticks makes you look cool if you get it right. :P
Nomad: I get annoyed when people tell me how to eat. I'm sorry I don't use fifty knives and forks like the priviliged aristos or use plates out in the forsaken desert, but I really don't care.
Silver: Do you at least chew with your mouth closed?
Nomad: (takes a moment to recall the last time he ate) Uhhhhhhhh...Yes?
Silver: Then I won't be throwing you out of any windows.
Nomad: ...Thank you?
auBella: Talking with your mouth full, by far—I don't want to see all the chewed up slime you're eating, eww.
Q: What's the most disproportionate response you've ever seen or heard to something (including if you were the one reacting disproportionately)?
