[ To say Lancer's read everything on the network is... well, close to the mark, but still generous. Skimmed, mulled, thought it over. Formed an opinion and picked a stance.

But admitting to thinking!! Unacceptable. Time for some counsel. ]

yo. you still alive, or did you die while everyone was talking?
riastraid: (73)

nah what's the fun in that

[ North's in the very same boat as him then—spirit turned mortal again (maybe slightly different shades of mortal, but still). Perfect. ]

hah. well, you know me.

[ Real answer: not recklessly, but yes. ]

what do you make of things, north?
riastraid: (88)

casual existential dread with santa

[ Hitting things is way easier than resolving issues with words anyway, lbr. ]

i guess that depends on what you wanna call saving.

spoken like a true hipster edgelord

[ The feeling is entirely too mutual. Idle chatter though—now there's a good use of time. ]

nah. i just don't expect to save an entire world.
riastraid: ignore all the numbering (001)

yeah your splash page navi is very convincing

[ Slacking on his present-crafting duties, for shame.

Also this is not what he wanted, don't turn this on him, North. ]

i'm not gonna lose any sleep killing these goddesses, but we all know someone's gonna get screwed over no matter what we do. or don't do.

[ Whether it's the gods themselves, the planet itself, Pomarr, the Nalawi... ]

kinda silly to think of that as 'saving' right?
riastraid: (69)

look at my layout and call it hipster

[ At least Lancer knows that much. Good, bad... it's mostly perspective. They'll just do what they have to, and consequences will be consequences.

Either way, a good turning point. ]

so does that mean you're going along with it?
riastraid: (115)

fine you're tasteless trash and you listen to kpop because you're an abomination!!!!! is that better

[ There's that. But he's not really the type to wait around for an ideal solution, and there's the genocide besides.

And that's all very heavy. He has North's answer—or enough to piece it together—so... ]

you ever duke it out with one before?

[ It's true, why does this keep happening, why can't they just go back to the halcyon days of punching sharks and laughing about it.

Anyway, he's usually kind of sparse on the details, but what the hey. ]

a goddess of death. i'd trade you.

[ morrigan and 7 lava giants in exchange for the boogeyman, it's a deal.

there's a slight pause where lancer makes a face at the memory. ]

it was a good fight, but she'd always kinda creeped around me... should've chased her off earlier.

but i don't think i'd stand a chance as i am now.
riastraid: (84)

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[ no it's too late, enjoy the violence ]

you tell me, claws -- why do you think a goddess of death and war follows anyone around?

[ spoilers: it's because he's awesome at it. ]

don't count yourself out, you're pretty handy with the swashbuckling. maybe if we try our very best we'll turn out juuuust fine.

[personal profile] riastraid 2016-05-22 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
she did call it love... well, either way, i wasn't interested. [ in her promise of victory, war, or affection. ]

you must've broken a few hearts yourself, eh? once upon a time?

[ and it's okay, they can be bad at idioms together. flying livestock!!! all equally ridiculous, who can keep it straight. he senses nothing wrong with this. ]

oh come on, we'll never know until we try :) [ that is to say they'll probably die!! horribly :) :) :) ]
