Yup, uh alive ... that was the problem.

The requirement was unharmed...


I hope her level of threat and anxiety is starting to rise now... :D

...and Malati is laying it on thick. ;)

...and yayyy for the weapons - I believe they will come in handy for them later....

Sheela 19th Sep 2014, 1:03 AM edit delete reply

I believe Malati is fishing for info.

Of Course, she doesn't know about the broken jaw hindering Dari's ability to speak.
She'll probably figure that out pretty soon though.

Heck, Malati will probably even enjoy Dolly's handiwork .. might even be impressed once she learns how fast it happened.
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 2:43 AM edit delete reply

Not sure about that Sheela. From Rose's previous comments I think Malati enjoys making people 'uncomfortable'.

Dari should REALLY be ready to squirm, so Malati is going to see just how uncomfortable she can make Dari. Finding out that Douchebag wants her really should make her NERVOUS.

She might even figure out it was a fellow android that did the handiwork, and that wouldn't be good.
velvetsanity 19th Sep 2014, 3:27 AM edit delete reply

Malati likes creeping people out, not hurting them, Sheela
Dragonrider 19th Sep 2014, 9:46 AM edit delete reply

Think Noctis would be more impressed, however she might put two and two together and come up with an uncomfortable 5. Hope those scans aren't detected.

I almost forgot about that....she's dead now. ^^;;;;
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:43 PM edit delete reply

LOL - dont discount Dari too fast.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:26 PM edit delete reply

more than likely yes :D

Up that creek
No paddles!
Sheela 19th Sep 2014, 1:05 AM edit delete reply

Limping badly,
taking in water!
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 2:52 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, and termites are eating the canoe. Dari is in it DEEP.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:43 PM edit delete reply

yep shes headed for the waterfall but can she stop
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 3:34 PM edit delete reply

From what I've seen of Dari's personality, CentComm... NOPE. She doesn't know HOW to stop. :-p
Sheela 21st Sep 2014, 6:45 AM edit delete reply

Over the edge of the waterfall !
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:29 PM edit delete reply

oh yes :D
Haegan2005 18th Sep 2014, 9:11 PM edit delete reply

I get the feeling Dari is now beginning to feel uneasy. Rose and Cent broke a few sledge hammers on this one to get her attention!

Smooth story flow guys, as always.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:44 PM edit delete reply

thank you :D and yeah shes a bit uneasy .. shes a bit surprised at Malati's reaction.
jamie59 18th Sep 2014, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

Ceci found a candy store.
mjkj 18th Sep 2014, 9:59 PM edit delete reply

Indeed :D
Sheela 19th Sep 2014, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

But .. but .. where is the pink bubblegum ??

(aka. the plastic explosives)
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:44 PM edit delete reply

its in the box on the right on the ground :D
Dragonrider 18th Sep 2014, 9:58 PM edit delete reply

Somehow I don't think Dari will enjoy her chat with Prince Douchebag.
Sheela 19th Sep 2014, 1:07 AM edit delete reply

NOBODY enjoys the princes tirades.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

probably not. and the prince is in a really good mood lately..
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 3:19 PM edit delete reply

NOT, CentComm... His mood is beyond FOUL, I think. Of course, getting beat up by his hostage... and then Maxus would put most people in a bad mood. Of course, Douchebag is still breathing, which is more than can be said for MOST people that threaten someone he is protecting.
Draginbeard 18th Sep 2014, 10:29 PM edit delete reply

Crazy monkey wrench idea... Ceci and Dolly get discovered as androids, fight their way free. Dari gets executed as a ringleader trying to infiltrate the palace in a royal kidnapping conspiracy charge.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

hmmm that has merits
XMinusOne 18th Sep 2014, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
Heh! I figgered Dari would have a rap sheet in Nova Roma longer than a kids Christmas list to Santa Claus. I'll just bet His Imperial Asswipe would like to see her; roasted over a slow fire for starters.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:46 PM edit delete reply

Heh we shall see how Dec likes Dari soon enough.
Speedy Marsh 7th Feb 2017, 12:46 AM edit delete reply
Do I hear wedding and/or funeral bells?
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 3:23 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, XMinus... Dari has NEVER been a good girl, I think. If there is a law about it, she probably has broken it... SOMEWHERE. :-p
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:36 PM edit delete reply

or bent it :D
plymayer 18th Sep 2014, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

So, safe to say they were not in the Brownies together.
Sheela 19th Sep 2014, 1:08 AM edit delete reply

Nah, the brownie jar was already empty, Dari had been there before them.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:46 PM edit delete reply

LOL I assume you mean brownie scouts.. :D and nope
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 3:00 AM edit delete reply

Sub-text says this MIGHT be an issue? You THINK?!? Apparently Dolly's artificial nature is passing mustard... so far. Nothing immediately tripping Noctis' alarms.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:46 PM edit delete reply

yep :D
DizzasterJuice 19th Sep 2014, 6:39 AM edit delete reply

*sings* Die white girls, die white girls, dance upon the graves of the dead (Al the Killer, Coheed & Cambria)
Spooky girl is spooky. Okay I'll stop obsessing about the spooky girl, but you have to admit, she looks like she just came from dancing in the graveyard on a full moon.
Centcomm 19th Sep 2014, 2:47 PM edit delete reply

LOL its all good Dizz :D its all good :D
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 3:21 PM edit delete reply

There, there Dizz... Just stay calm... The men in white coats will be by to take you to a NICE, quiet room where you can relax. :-D

Though you DO have a point about how spooky Noctis looks. The package is seriously creepy.
Hydrargyrum 19th Sep 2014, 4:52 PM edit delete reply

Hmm, I dunno. Large chest, snug clothes, glowy eyes, fairly standard for DC character models. Yeah, Noctis is pale but actually less so than some goth girls I see. I also know some really neat older women with pretty grey hair like that; amazing people and cool friends. Granted, they have more wrinkles than Noctis does. But, nope, creepy's not hooked up for me here.

Malati's eyes are a little odd. But, honestly, I think Lexy is weirder. I suppose this implies I'm more frightened by J-pop than the Cassians. Which I would argue is probably a correct sense of priorities. :D
Stormwind13 19th Sep 2014, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

LOL Hydragyrum.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:37 PM edit delete reply

heh Malati's eyes are all chrome.. no pupil no iris no sclara . :D I tried to make them both really creepy :D
Rashala 19th Sep 2014, 4:05 PM edit delete reply

Wow........she really REALLY is in trouble *muahahahahahahahahahah*
Haegan2005 19th Sep 2014, 4:52 PM edit delete reply

Okay guys, Our valiant prince is hemmed in on all sides by the people who are not happy with him. I have a funny feeling he will have an offer for Dari. The bounty was put out when conditions were different and Douche figured he was still in control. I feel comfortable in saying that he no longer feels in control and will take appropriate action to take it back. I Think Dari is about to become a pawn in this.
Antonious 19th Sep 2014, 5:38 PM edit delete reply

Haegan2005, Dari always was a pawn. Her value as one only changed according to her usefulness
Stormwind13 21st Sep 2014, 1:07 PM edit delete reply

Douchebag is NOT Prince Valiant, Heagan! About as far from that as is possible, I think. :-D
Haegan2005 21st Sep 2014, 1:25 PM edit delete reply

What I am thinking is that douche is going to be looking for allies. Disposable allies, but still allies. He is feeling isolated now and since he is a control freak this would be intolerable. He will be looking for a way to get back into control.

I wonder who all is invited to the upcoming celebrations and if it will be 'interrupted' by the war droids that he still controls. A nice and easy way to remove these irritating 'roadblocks' that keep popping up.

You know your hooked when you start spending time trying to anticipate what is going to happen!
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

and that is what we shoot for :D is getting you guys engaged :D Im very happy :D
Stormwind13 21st Sep 2014, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

Engage, CentComm? We'll show you ENGAGED!!! }:-D~>

Targeting 33 27'N by 112 04'W --- Captain you have permission to fire the BIG GUN. :-D
highlander55 19th Sep 2014, 7:05 PM edit delete reply

Did everyone forget that Dec is under strict watch by Monks. No females (human anyways) would be allowed near him unattended without them. Unless they don't care about prisoners to vent his problem on her.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:39 PM edit delete reply

hehe - thats mostly to protect Lynn and Acantha.. and the female Servants.
Stormwind13 21st Sep 2014, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

I think Douchebag still reserved being Judge, Jury and Executioner, highlander. So I fear that Dari won't be saved by THAT.
Kitty 19th Sep 2014, 7:50 PM edit delete reply
What's creepy about her is that baby face, while you know the kind of things she does. I keep imagining a monotone voice, no inflections, no emotions.

And maybe I'm a big softy but I'm starting to feel a little bit bad for Dari. Granted, not MUCH remembering how she treated Lynn....but I wouldn't throw a rabid dog to Decimus (although it would probably be solving too problems at once, come to think....)
Tokyo Rose 21st Sep 2014, 3:26 PM edit delete reply

When designing Noctis, I swan-dived into the Uncanny Valley for all I was worth. I wanted that porcelain baby-doll face with absolutely no emotional expressiveness. And she does indeed have a flatly monotone manner of speaking, but her voice is very soft and girlish, in the alto range. Malati works with a master's dedication to be as creepy as possible; Noctis does it just by existing.
Stormwind13 21st Sep 2014, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

Well if that was your design philosophy, Rose... You did a good job. TOO damn good, she is disturbingly creepy.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

its really hard for me NOT to give her expressions >_<
Stever 21st Sep 2014, 12:00 PM edit delete reply

The hair styles on all these girls are really cool!
Centcomm 21st Sep 2014, 3:40 PM edit delete reply

glad you like it Stever welcome to the group :D
