And Dari hears NO answers to her questions. Just the sounds of the firing squad. :-D
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

and thats not a nice sound at all :D

Firing squad would be too merciful for Decimus...at least immediately. I almost feel sorry for her.
Speedy Marsh 5th Feb 2017, 2:14 AM edit delete reply
Deci will be upset that another artist has already painted on his canvas.
Rashala 31st Aug 2014, 9:05 PM edit delete reply

*hands HEr a picture of CAlli, Dolly AND Centcomm with a caption (You Screwed with these folks. Have a nice life....all five minutes of it you have left ebfore the agony hits.*
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

LOL - should be fun times.. for someone :D
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:13 PM edit delete reply

Actually while you're at it, you can hand her a picture of Decimus as well .. that might actually scare her more than the Calli/Dolly/Centcomm picture, because she *knows* that the prince is god awful mad.
jamie59 31st Aug 2014, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

I think the name of those Gods is Centcomm & Tokyo Rose.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

that would be a couple .. that's for sure.
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:14 PM edit delete reply

Not to mention the selfstyled "god" of Nova Roma .. Decimus !
Haegan2005 31st Aug 2014, 9:17 PM edit delete reply

This is one of those occasions where more is redundant...
I have a feeling Dari dropped Lynn off and never looked back.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 8:38 AM edit delete reply

yes.. as you recall Maxus was not making her feel very welcome in Roma .. so she high tailed it out of there .
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:15 PM edit delete reply

That was about the only sensible thing she did.
cattservant 31st Aug 2014, 9:36 PM edit delete reply

Wait till she finds out
what 'asshole god'
she did piss off!
velvetsanity 31st Aug 2014, 9:36 PM edit delete reply

I have a feeling that as soon as Dari's jaw is fixed she'll warn her jailers in hopes of getting off easy. At which point the fecal matter will quickly make high velocity contact with the rotational atmospheric movement device
Tokyo Rose 31st Aug 2014, 9:59 PM edit delete reply

That'd go kind of like this:

"The crazy bitch that kicked my ass and brought me in is a security agent from New Troy!"

"Her identification checks out. She's a licensed bounty hunter."

"But she said she was a Troy security agent!"

"Sure, sure. I can say that I'm Santa Claus."

"BUT -" *taser*
Rashala 31st Aug 2014, 11:34 PM edit delete reply

actually Rose I see it going more like this


Ah the Merc that His highness posted a reward for.....Yes yes *no healing done* lets see Ah yess....Special orders for this one

*Guard tazes She wakes u p Conscious and awake but mouth gagged on a organ harvest table* His highnesses orders you are to be harvested Awake for your crimes....sorry *starts cutting out parts with no anestetic
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

ouch!
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

She will most likely try .. if she can :P
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:29 PM edit delete reply

Continuing the line of thought brought up by Rose :



Dari : "The crazy bitch that kicked my ass and brought me in, is a security agent from New Troy!"
Guard : "Her identification checks out. She's a licenced bounty hunter."
Dari : "But she said she was a Troy security agent!"
Guard : "And I said her identification checks out - and she's also listed as a security agent for the Fallon Mercenary band."
Dari : "wait .. Fallon ? .. Fallon Taylor ?"
Guard : "Yes. Also known as the father of Lynn Taylor, whom you should know."
Dari : " ..... fuuuuuuuuuu#¤%#¤%%!"
Guard : "Frankly, I'm surprised she even bothered to turn you in."
Dolly : "I noticed the bounty was from Prince Decimus, and he's *far* nastier than I could ever be."
Guard : "That's pretty cold, but accurate."
Dari : "Shit, I'm so fucked!"
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 12:44 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, if anyone was going to waste the time TALKING to Dari, Sheela. Unfortunately for her, I don't see it.

Dari has been listed as fertilizer since Douchebag put a bounty out on her. Now comes the time for her blood to nurture the crops.
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:52 PM edit delete reply

Well, sometimes it's funny to talk to the people on the floor ... before you step on them.
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 12:55 PM edit delete reply

Talk to them, not LISTEN to them though. Not really. The sadistic people just want to hear the screams and moans, not anything their 'victim' really wants to say.
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 1:13 PM edit delete reply

Unless of course, they can make them squirm a bit more before the "fun" begins.

Yeah, I could see a sadist do that.
Rashala 1st Sep 2014, 1:56 PM edit delete reply

You know she could write a book now.


What to do when you are ROYALLY F**KED


Not a long book but one to the point :)
velvetsanity 1st Sep 2014, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

"Not long"...
Talk about understatement.

It'd only be nine words long:
"Run like hell and pray they don't find you"
Sheela 2nd Sep 2014, 7:27 AM edit delete reply

Just one word "RUN!!" and then on the cover, in big friendly letters, "PANIC!"
Speedy Marsh 5th Feb 2017, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
And with Deci, that title would be both figuratively and literally true.
XMinusOne 31st Aug 2014, 11:27 PM edit delete reply
Depending on Dari's physical condition, she may be more valuable alive as spare parts which means New Roma makes out on the deal. She won't be harvested all at once, mind you, the remaining parts have to be kept fresh for use as needed. At least she'll be doing some good for a change.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

lol Wow you guys are horrid! :P
Speedy Marsh 5th Feb 2017, 2:43 AM edit delete reply
They'll keep her alive much, much longer than any human could naturally survive. In fact, when she finally meets The Doctor and Rose Tyler, she'll have changed her name to Cassandra, and will be known as the Last Human, but will be little more than a face and skin stretched tight on a frame.
DizzasterJuice 1st Sep 2014, 12:32 AM edit delete reply

Okay skag. Just because Ceci knows all those "special" techniques, it does not make her a fuckbot!
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

Minx : YEAH! - I agree with Dizz!!!
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:32 PM edit delete reply

Minx : "Well, unless we're talking about Officer Roy, then I am his everything!" :D
Rashala 1st Sep 2014, 1:58 PM edit delete reply

Yeah I mean just cause Centy chose a sex bot Doll does nto make her one. OR just cause TEdee is small cute and sexy doesn't mean she won't Do things to you that are anatomically impossible if you even dare make a pass at her.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

LOL :D
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 5:51 PM edit delete reply

Minx: HEEY stop putting words in my mouth !! sorta... :: BLUSH :::
Sheela 2nd Sep 2014, 7:27 AM edit delete reply

Officer Roy : "I heard that !" :D
Centcomm 2nd Sep 2014, 9:42 AM edit delete reply

Its actually " Ray " :D
Sheela 2nd Sep 2014, 1:06 PM edit delete reply

Oh, my bad.

He's a ray of sunshine in her life, eh ?
Oldarmourer 25th Jun 2019, 9:35 AM edit delete reply
Yeah...she's not a bot...she's a 'droid, big difference ;)
mjkj 1st Sep 2014, 2:03 AM edit delete reply

I wonder how the reception will be - and if dari is granted an immediate audience with deci to relieve his anger and frustration...
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

we shall see :D
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:33 PM edit delete reply

Maybe Kali wants to play with her a bit first.
VanEzzania 1st Sep 2014, 6:22 AM edit delete reply

That's a lot of directories on that computer.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

Yep - that there is.. :D
shinka 1st Sep 2014, 9:16 AM edit delete reply

i'm still in pain with all the bruises i see on this pretty girl... OUCH!

great page
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

:D - well its not as if Dari didnt earn them >_<
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 12:47 PM edit delete reply

Earn every ONE of them... and then some, CentComm. I mean, not only for kidnapping and terrorizing Lynn (Dolly's little 'girl'), but then sassing off to Dolly ABOUT it.

Dari is lucky she doesn't need a machine to do her breathing for her!
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

At stormwind .. She really is .. Zophia ( at breakers ) had to threaten Dolly with bodily harm to make her stop..
Matt Knab 1st Sep 2014, 9:25 AM edit delete reply

Hrm...good thing she didn't say that last part out loud!
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

Oh very much so :D
Marcus Ramesy 1st Sep 2014, 9:45 AM edit delete reply

What asshole god indeed..... there are a number of them... do you want it alphabetical or categorical ?
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

LOL - true
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 10:53 AM edit delete reply

LOL Marcus. As big an a-hole as Dari IS, I would have expected to know them by heart already!
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 12:34 PM edit delete reply

Heck, she probably worships one of them.
Draginbeard 1st Sep 2014, 12:46 PM edit delete reply

Now Im curious. What will the authorities do with Dari? Jail, execution, indentured servitude?

If they use true roman justice, no matter what they do, I can't imagine it will be pleasant.
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 12:50 PM edit delete reply

Douchebag is intimately involved and wants to teach a lesson in terror, Draginbeard. Make sure anyone ELSE that takes his coin realize that they better do their BEST job (for crappy pay, probably, knowing how cheap-ass Douchebag is) or suffer the consequences.

So yeah I'm sure it will be THOROUGHLY unpleasant, Draginbeard.
Sheela 1st Sep 2014, 1:13 PM edit delete reply

I believe he was talking about quartering her ?
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 1:30 PM edit delete reply

I think you are right... but that was spur of the moment, Sheela. He probably has gotten more... imaginative now that he has had time to think about it. Poor Dari.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 5:48 PM edit delete reply

well it all depends on Decimus .. he could just have her killed.. or sent to the arenas or thrown into chains as a slave. or death by slow torture .. any number of unkind fates ..
Timotheus 1st Sep 2014, 3:59 PM edit delete reply

Traditionally, incompetence while still carrying out a imperial commission would have been the arena, either becoming a gladiator or animal plaything for the crowds amusement. (They did carry out the commission after all, so that should be worth something.) Only incompetence while not carrying out the commission would get a public execution.
Stormwind13 1st Sep 2014, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

Hmmm... You probably are right, Timotheus. In this case though, you have an enraged megalomaniac that wants to punish what he perceives as 'lies' to his person. Dari is SO fu¢ked.
Centcomm 1st Sep 2014, 5:49 PM edit delete reply

all true Tim .. so Dari's fate while not fun .. might be survivable..
Haegan2005 1st Sep 2014, 8:59 PM edit delete reply

I have read enough to shiver when someone says the word "Survivable".

The human body can take an incredible amount of damage and still live through it with minimal medical care afterwards.

With the medical tech available to Decimus, he can take it far closer then what you or I can probably imagine.

Fortunately for Dari my suspicion is that he is not mentally capable enough at this point to think along those lines. I don't really think that we will be waiting long on Dari's fate guys.

The Prince does not strike me as good at delaying "gratification." It will also allow him to excercise some measure of control over something and at this point he will use that to recenter himself and his paranoia. Once he begins to feel some measure of control again he will feel he can handle the others and may start to take action against those he feels are threatening him.

I can't wait to see where this goes!
Timotheus 1st Sep 2014, 9:46 PM edit delete reply

While not really pertinent to our story, there was a religious aspect to punishment by the arena in Roman tradition. With sufficient display of what the Roman's considered " warrior virtues" one might earn the favor of the gods and thus survive the arena, thereby gaining freedom, citizenship, and absolution from whatever crime you were accused of. This led to the later tradition of the Emperor's "thumbs up or down" in later years when he was considered a god on earth.
Sheela 2nd Sep 2014, 7:32 AM edit delete reply

Ah, but the prince is not the archpriest of the Church of Genetic Purity.
That would be .... *blink*

Oh shit - Run, Dari, RUN !!
