    Bubbles or no, Alexaion is laughing now.

    Why wouldn't he?

    "Hehe, sorry, you totally walked into that one,"
    he laughs whilst poking at the bubble in a vain attempt to dislodge it.

    It's got to go away eventually, right?

    ...hopefully being a girly pink dragon isn't contagious. He's already weird enough as it stands.

    Regardless!

    He begins hiking up the trail leading away from the beach. It's pretty steep, but someone was nice enough to bury (admittedly precarious) wooden stares into the path. Still beats scrambling up a hillside covered in scree, though.

    "So... what do you do, exactly? Just normal highschool stuff? Except normal highschool stuff while being a pink furry dragon?" he asks.

    He's trying to gauge how 'normal' this place he ended up in is.

    Too late, Alexaion. You’re already infected with fluffdragon. The corruption has already spread over your entire head- wait no that’s your hair.
    The bubble pops by itself after about half a minute.

    Gara tries the stairs but decides she has to go human for those. She had totally slid down the hill on the way here.
    ”Well I used to go to a super normal high school but then it got eaten by faeries and my best friend got turned into a kumiho and I almost got turned into a nacken or a naiad or something. So now she goes to a school run by the foxes at the Temple of Inari and I got in to help her. It’s pretty normal except most of our classmates are varying kinds of foxpeople.” Grant explains.

    At leas the bubble didn't turn his hair pink. Blond hair is relatively easy to dye after all.

    "Well, if there are gods and dragons here I guess faeries and fox-people aren't too out of place," Alexaion reasons.

    Oof.

    This is a lot of stairs.

    At first they're flanked with sandy bluffs and grey clay with the occasional flower growing out of it, but eventually the trail levels out a bit. Wooden handrails flank the trail now, grey and weathered by sea wind. Thick berry bushes cover the hillside, heavy with blossoms. It isn't QUITE berry season yet. But maybe give it a few more months?

    Our heroes will soon meet a family of Klingons coming in the other direction, the children fighting with each other loudly the whole way.

    "Okay, seriously, why is this place so weird?" Alexaion asks once they're out of earshot.

    Grant drops off the garbage bag into a nearby receptacle.
    ”You have a mouth growing out of your butt. That eats metal. And you’re complaining that people with rubbery foreheads are too weird for you?”
    Way to be insensitive Alexaion. What’s going to happen when you meet someone as weird as you?

    "Yeah, but eidolons are real," Alexaion objects. "Klingons are from star trek."

    A beat.

    "Wait, this place isn't some kind of awful crossover mashup, is it?"

    Oh geeze.

    That would horrible.

    Or really great?

    Kind of depends on the sorts of crossovers we're talking about.

    Grant looks at Alexaion. Well. It sounds like he’s never played Monster Hunter.
    Grant sure won’t now.

    Then he seems to be...making a video call on speaker-phone?
    ”Hello? Grant! How’s the champ doing?” answers a blue Dinosaur with a helmet and digital camo.
    ”Hey Private. How’s it hanging? You find your partner yet?”
    ”No. I haven’t...felt It yet. But what did you need?”
    ”Oh I have a Code NN whom I thought would want to talk to you.”
    ”Aaaaah. Say no more. Put ‘em on.”
    Grant grins and turns the phone and its camera to Alexaion.

    Well.

    Of all the things Alexaion expected, this is probably the thing he expected the least.

    "Uh..."

    He's feeling pretty dumbfounded right now.

    Can this be real?

    He already concluded that something about the procedure hurled him elsewhere.

    So is this really that weird?

    Yes.

    The answer is yes.

    "Is... I always wondered. Do your names all end in .mon because it's your file extension?"

    Stupid. That was a stupid thing to ask.

    Private seems to stop and think.
    ”Well no one really calls me Commandramon. Everyone calls me Private. But I think .mon is my file extension. It changes sometimes, you know how it is.” He probably doesn’t.
    ”But I mean, my netnavi buddies are all -Man but they’re .exe’s so really I don’t think it matters?” Oh boy, those are a thing too.

Though I’m sure anyone would be lucky to look like you.” he says, slipping into flattery as that gaze continues to stare down at him. Darn it, why does she have to be so intimidating? Though he isn’t lying either. If she looked anything like Sargrera, she was probably huge. Will did notice the size increase between his leader and the male gnolls in the party.
    ”Human women are -generally- a little smaller than our men and are wider in some places and smaller in others? Um, I don’t know if Tammy is a good example but I think goblins are closer to my people than yours. You seem to be pretty experienced I’m sure you’ve seen a picture of us at some point.
    And uh, knightly means she wants to look noble and strong, shiny and armored.
    Oh and I’m her commander not her owner. She’s no slave.”

    Will’s hand gestures probably aren’t helping in this case given the size. This was so much easier when Jinn just took this information out of his mind. Though in hindsight that should have been a serious red flag. Maybe he didn’t do that at all and just lied about it. Will never got that shiny new body did he?

    TTN points out firmly. She did NOT want to be small, let alone smaller than Will. "In this co-co-context, I would say it is meant to be more streamlined and gr-gr-graceful instead of bulky and blocky. But I will settle for wh-wh-what I can get or whatever you are wi-wi-willing to provide."
    [Operation Sea Slug]

    The lich first looks at Will and then back at TTN. "Why do I even bother asking?" She giggles in a very gnollish manner. "Don't worry though, I have a solution in mind."
    Slowly getting up, TTN can hear the ancient gnolls bones creak as she moves. Even with magic holding them together the lich's body sounds like an old house settling. "I'll leave you with some company and perhaps we can see about undoing that curse once I get back. Feel free to ask her anything."

    Then she starts descending down into the bunker once again, ignoring all potential protests.
    However, no sooner is she gone before a the succubi demon appears in her place, now in her gnoll-form and dressed up in a maid outfit that would have been too risque to describe on the forum with a new black collar around her neck. She crosses her arm over her chest and let's out a deep sigh. "Oh go ahead, mock and laugh. The sinccubi is dressed up as a sinccubi. If my sister could see me now..." She shakes her head. "This is all your fault you know. If you had only heeded my warning we wouldn't be in this mess."



    TTN will be lead down into the bunker once again, the lich humming a cheerful tune. "Oh, did I even introduce myself?" She slaps her bone-y forehead. "I am Lannereth Fenodora, philanthropist, warlock and eternal servant of the eternal empire, at your service madame golem."

    Will watches them go with some reservations, but he’s not in a position to argue.
    He does get some morbid amusement out of the demon. He doesn’t laugh at her. But he is happy to see her upset after what she said about TTN. Though really he wishes he didn’t have to look at such an up-scaled...that right now.
    ”I thought ‘bi was plural? You have this weird idea that I had a hand in deciding any of this. Yell at the boss if you’re so annoyed.” He gestures at the other crew members, assuming Sargrera is in there somewhere.

    "And I am Tango-Tango-November, or Titania if you prefer. I am a Bolo, sentient ta-ta-tank and guardian of a different empire."
    TTN explains, choosing to pick her words carefully. "An empire that no longer seems to ex-ex-exist or be around here, so I have found myself a Charge to protect. As much as Will calls himself my Co-Co-Commander, I must admit that his orders do not bear the full weight of a true military one. I ask that you please do not hold it against him though. He simply needs to find his pl-pl-place in the world." She explains gently.

    "What wi-wi-will be done to repair me?"
    She asks. She doesn't sound nervous at least.

    The gnoll-demon grunts and rubs her forehead. "Grammar? Really?" She shakes her head and gives him a tired look. "And of course you didn't have a hand, that would require a will, or a spine." Pretty sure that wasn't a pun. "You're the kind of person that just go with whatever everyone else does, a good little boy." The demon smiles, almost like she is about to laugh but something is holding her back and she quickly goes back to looking bitter.

    "Uh, I don't think you should talk to her. She's just insulting you Will, its pointless." Tammy sticks out her tongue. "All mean, not nice at all." As opposed to her imp? "We should find the group instead, see if they are alright." The goblin gestures at the spot they were before.



    "A guardian of a ancient empire? So you really are like the golems of old." Lannereth muses. "As what will be done... I'm going to use a aether infusion to help glue you together. Don't suppose you know what that is? This infusion will regardless be far more powerful than the ones you're used to. I've experimented with it in the past and the results were always impressive, though always hard to predict."

    Will gives her a spiteful smile.
    "Well, yes, grammar. It's not like I talk to you for the intelligent conversation. Seems like your poor little brain can only understand insults and complaining. Why don't you learn to shut up and look pretty like a good dog? Your master already gave you such a nice collar." Will tells her with as much 'concealed' bile as he can manage, and turns callously to Tammy to check on the gnolls. They'll probably make better conversation.

    TTN tilts her head a bit at the proposed solution, but whether it was on purpose or purely accidental due to her tenuous grip slipping, it's hard to tell. Though it was also debatable as to whether or not the lich would even care about such a gesture. "N-N-No, I don't know what that is, but on the pl-pl-plus side? I don't feel pain and I assume that the pr-pr-process you are proposing would be quite agonizing to other pe-pe-people." She points out.

    "Go ahead and do it. Sh-Sh-Should it not work however and if I become irreparable, I plead of you to make sure Will ma-ma-makes it home safely."

    Tammy frowns. "You should know better to start a fight with an *******, Will. Don't you know what they say? They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. Just quit it, don't try to get 'last word' since that's not gonna work when she's like a billion times larger than you right now."

    The demon giggles and reaches up to touch her collar. "Oh, you like this, don't you? It's rather nice, isn't it? Being all magical. I'm afraid your collar won't look nearly as fancy though as I recall that human slaves only got ordinary metal collars." She reaches out and gestures at Tammy. "And the same goes for goblins. They never considered you as true threats. I mean, you only took charge after my people rose up and destroyed their empire."

    It will take them a while to reach the gnolls as they have to walk up a slight slope that is almost like climbing a mountain at their current size.



    "You worry too much. If I don't want you do perish, you won't." The lich claims. "Really, things cease to be dangerous once you can overcome death, wouldn't you say?" She doesn't sound concerned at all so at least she believes in everything she says.

    As the gnoll strides forward, the stones move to accommodate her, opening the way back to the inner sanctum of her bunker. "You're in luck, really. The ultimate essence just made its way here a few hours ago by sheer coincidence. Someone or something must have triggered my recall enchantment after all these years, and its amazing that still works in-itself."

    She reaches down to pick up a glove made of a silvery material and turns it upside down, revealing that its filled with a blue tar-like substance. "Perhaps it was fate, hm?" She waves the glove. "And yes, that's demonic essence, really just enhanced aether with a bit of a will of its own. Nothing dangerous, though people have reported visions when getting in contact with this one."

    Will shrugs.
    ”Sorry, Tammy. Can’t help myself. Been cooped up in the Spire alone too long. I missed trading insults with other squatters on the streets.” he says with a grin, wholly ignoring the demon.

    He’ll be less cheerful after the long walk to the rest of the party, but there’s nothing to be done about that.

    "Fate? De-De-Destiny? Perhaps so."
    TTN admits, relaxing as she chooses to accept what is going to happen as something out of her control. She didn't plan on dying, but she was most definitely ready for whatever outcome was ahead of her. "All the World's a st-st-stage, and we are but it's players." She quotes. "Sh-Sh-Should I shut down for this process? Or should I be aware?"
