A long way from home!
[And just full of information.]
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

yep... im sure you will elaborate :D

When Madame Rose finds something that works
She sure stays with it!
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:28 PM edit delete reply

if it isnt broke.. dont fix it.
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 4:10 AM edit delete reply

I'm not sure how common that name is, Cat; however, you are right. Interesting that she would have the name Yukimura too. :-)
cattservant 5th Mar 2014, 8:01 AM edit delete reply

Consider the implications of this page.

[Check the comments too.]
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 5:24 PM edit delete reply

Thank you Cat for finding that page. I didn't have time to do that this morning before work. :-)
Dragonrider 4th Mar 2014, 9:05 PM edit delete reply

I do hope she drops that accent around Leo, it's nasty. Well looks like Leo may get to meet Douchebutt sooner than later, have a feeling Leo will be assigned to be his server to replace Sergia. Hope he takes his Valium.
cattservant 4th Mar 2014, 9:08 PM edit delete reply

He should be able to speak with her in her native tongue.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:08 PM edit delete reply

its a total act as we all know.. but it makes people think shes slow or outright dumb.. :D
velvetsanity 4th Mar 2014, 9:26 PM edit delete reply

It's also fairly typical for Asians in general. Asian languages in particular don't have particles like 'a', 'an', 'the' and so forth, so they tend to leave those words out often when speaking english. Even americans who spend a lot of time in those countries speaking the local language tend to find themselves doing it after a while.
antrik 10th Oct 2016, 7:35 AM edit delete reply
Actually, I have more often seen Asians overcompensate -- putting "the" everywhere, including places it doesn't belong...
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:11 PM edit delete reply

one point .. "Leo" isnt a priest .. oops :D
Dragonrider 4th Mar 2014, 9:23 PM edit delete reply

Ooohhh Agrippa gets to wait tables for His Imperial Douchieness?
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:28 PM edit delete reply

maybe not him spicificly :D
Sheela 6th Mar 2014, 3:57 AM edit delete reply

I dunno ... I could totally see Agrippa serve His Douchiness with the utmost contempt !

I mean, he'd do it, but His Douchiness would not enjoy it.
Also, His Douchiness would probably get more than a little spit in his food!

Hey ... maybe we *should* put Agrippa on the task? :D
jamie59 4th Mar 2014, 9:07 PM edit delete reply

Interesting thing Miraiko is almost wearing.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

im sure it turned more than a few heads .. :D
Dragonrider 4th Mar 2014, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

She probably wore it mainly for Julia I have a feeling she is a bit more than a servant.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2014, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

She honestly does like Julia.. and you are pretty much dead on. :D
velvetsanity 4th Mar 2014, 9:33 PM edit delete reply

After what drekhead did to Julia? She has to get comfort from somewhere...
Sheela 6th Mar 2014, 3:58 AM edit delete reply

I'm thinking it goes beyond comfort.
Miraiko is in no hurry to get out of New Rome.
Stormwind13 6th Mar 2014, 3:09 PM edit delete reply

Actually, Sheela I think you are wrong about Miraiko's desires, if this is any indication at least (Page 432, More than meets the eye, but it should eventually be replaced).
Sheela 7th Mar 2014, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

I meant in the sense of, she might want to leave the city, but she doesn't want to leave Julia - thus she's in no hurry to leave the place, because it has Julia in it.

... however, if Julia was to leave the place as well, then hot damn, she'd be in a hurry to leave!
cattservant 4th Mar 2014, 10:05 PM edit delete reply

Are the red figures on Miraiko's arm a registration number or some mystic incantation?

[BTW: Her SLT weather covers are slipping.]
King Mir 4th Mar 2014, 10:30 PM edit delete reply
Do you mean to say long registration numbers aren't mystic incantations?
cattservant 4th Mar 2014, 11:07 PM edit delete reply

That's a very good point.
Just like currency!
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 7:36 AM edit delete reply

the charcters on Miraikos arm are - ah-hem a reminder. it wasnt julia's idea or Miraiko. thats all Ill say.
cattservant 5th Mar 2014, 8:14 AM edit delete reply

Don't you just love the air of mystery and intrigue!
mjkj 5th Mar 2014, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

Great, that is good news for Sergia. I am sure in a few minutes the official order will come down.

It is good to see that Miraiko cares for Sergia (and also for Julia).

I am sure the priests will be excited of their new task. :p

*hugs Miraiko and Sergia*

Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 12:51 PM edit delete reply

oh they are overjoyed ill bet :D
mjkj 5th Mar 2014, 3:00 PM edit delete reply

Yup, they must...

What great joy and honor to serve their great god-like king... :p

Sheela 6th Mar 2014, 4:00 AM edit delete reply

Hey, for some Priests I'm sure it's a great chance to get to spit in the Prince's food ... maybe even pee a little.
mjkj 6th Mar 2014, 4:55 AM edit delete reply

Maybe add a little relaxants or laxatives to it...
Sheela 7th Mar 2014, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

Rashala 5th Mar 2014, 12:55 AM edit delete reply

I have a feeling That those Priests are euphamisms for MEDICS....Cause if maxis Leaves DEci's Nuts still attached to his body, he is gonna need some Serious medical attention to have them pulls down from however high up They are being kicked right now bnack to their normal spot And or REPLACED
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 8:09 AM edit delete reply

Medics and doctors . a Medic is a basic Priest, A doctor is a Priest Adept or higher. and of course nurses and other lower castes are Acolytes

Miraiko is basicly saying that the only people that can serve the prince will have medical training and are "untouchable" as all Priests of the church are protected by tradition.
Dragonrider 5th Mar 2014, 2:00 PM edit delete reply

Also will have access to sober-ups, anti-paranoia, and sleepy-time drugs any of which may be administered in wine in an emergency.
Rashala 5th Mar 2014, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

And Do not forget they also have access to medical equipment nessicary to treat the broken and cracked bones and head trauma DEci is likely to have in spades right now
Sheela 5th Mar 2014, 3:35 PM edit delete reply

Setorius might also use his power to protect them to some degree, I mean ... imagine having to go up agaist someone who have been around for 80 years and can still kick your ass ?

The Archpriest is kinda scary as fuck.
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 3:42 PM edit delete reply

and yes you will get to meet him soon enough *shivers*
Sheela 6th Mar 2014, 12:40 AM edit delete reply

What I was alluding to, is that it's not *just* tradition that keeps the priests safe.
They also have an Archpriest that is about as creepy as a bag of scorpions, to back them up.

And he would be, as part of his own security lies in the numbers of priests beneath him. And all of that is without considering any political ties that the church may have buildt up.

In short, The Priests aren't as defenseless as many may think they are, though they may like portraying themselves as such, to make their patients more at ease with them.
Anyone who have handled combat medics will know how true this is ... they make a lot of scary friends in their line of work.
Centcomm 6th Mar 2014, 7:03 PM edit delete reply

they really do.. :D and no they are NOT defensless for the most part.
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 3:59 AM edit delete reply

Now who is silly enough to think that Miraiko just 'happened' to run into Leo (Kyle) right now? :-D

Rose guiding her agents together to get things rolling. Miraiko manages to pass along important information, just kind of off-hand even, to Leo (Kyle).

I like Miraiko's outfit, but damn that has to be cold around the halls (it should be good in the kitchen though)!
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 8:09 AM edit delete reply

hey some random chance is here :D
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 5:30 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, sure CentComm... About as 'random' as a sequential string of integers I wager! :-D

I don't think Rose would allow it to be any other way! :-)
VanEzzania 5th Mar 2014, 7:05 AM edit delete reply

Miraiko's outfit is.... nice
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 8:09 AM edit delete reply

Thats one word for it .. yes it is :D
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 5:32 PM edit delete reply

I was going to say it was a string with a slight thyroid condition. I mean that is a LOT of skin on display for Miraiko. Not that I object in the least. :-)
KarToon12 5th Mar 2014, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

How gentlemanly of him to keep his eyes squarely trained on her face and NOT her skimpy clothes.
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 10:52 AM edit delete reply

Oh Miraiko noticed .. trust me :D
velvetsanity 5th Mar 2014, 1:13 PM edit delete reply

The question is, is she happy about it, disappointed by it, or both? :D
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

Proably keeps him off the "maim later" list she is keeping.. :D
velvetsanity 5th Mar 2014, 1:34 PM edit delete reply

Probably, but there will always be that niggling doubt: "does he think I'm unattractive? is he gay?"
Dragonrider 5th Mar 2014, 1:57 PM edit delete reply

No but she will be able to report to Lynn he was polite and attentive to instructions. Only paying attention to her instructions not her body.
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

So Miraiko keeps a LIST too?

Now a better question, um, where does she KEEP it? O_o Inquiring minds want to know! :-D
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 3:41 PM edit delete reply

in her head of course .. you see any POCKETS on that thing?? :D
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 3:57 PM edit delete reply

Well I was going to see if she might let me do a quick search to see if there are any pockets involved. I wouldn't SURVIVE the experience, I'm sure, but it might be worth it. :-D
velvetsanity 5th Mar 2014, 6:03 PM edit delete reply

EVERY woman keeps a list. Haven't you boys figured that out yet?
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 6:16 PM edit delete reply

LOL velvet. No, we figure it out and then someone like Miraiko shows up showing that much skin and we TOTALLY lose that train... ::SCREECH, CRASH:: :-D
highlander55 5th Mar 2014, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

Actually it's more like an Excel file that is constantly updating.
Sheela 6th Mar 2014, 12:45 AM edit delete reply

The surprise to most women is that the boys are keeping lists too !

Like, they have ... "Top ten hottest girls" and "Top ten most likely to fuck me" kinds of lists, but still. :D
velvetsanity 6th Mar 2014, 7:18 AM edit delete reply

More like a database, really. Name, time/date, type(s) of maiming, reason(s) for maiming, priority of maiming, number of maimings required to achieve satisfaction, strengths/weaknesses, reasons to *not* maim, expected amount of satisfaction to be gained through the maiming, whether they're cute/hot/have a nice butt, whether they should be friendzoned, a one night stand, a fling, or are a potential long-term...
highlander55 6th Mar 2014, 6:54 PM edit delete reply

And as you get older you know all the cheats for the Mind Games and all the answers needed for the Shit Test. Then you can settle down if only due to boredom.
Draginbeard 5th Mar 2014, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

Ummm yeah, I dont know if I could keep my eyes at a business level... maybe monkey business level, but no guarantees even then.

So that marking on her (Miraiko) arm, does it represent anything, or is it personal?
Centcomm 5th Mar 2014, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

the marking on her arm ( Miraiko's ) is a owners mark. again not her idea or Julia's just something that was done.
Stormwind13 5th Mar 2014, 3:14 PM edit delete reply

Property is supposed to be properly identified and registered. Whether it wants to be or not. :-p
mjkj 6th Mar 2014, 2:12 AM edit delete reply

So, she is owned by Rose?
Centcomm 6th Mar 2014, 8:19 AM edit delete reply

no by Julia. :D
Stormwind13 6th Mar 2014, 3:20 PM edit delete reply

I was going to say, Rose doesn't seem to need to OWN people. She has their allegiance, she doesn't need to brand them and claim ownership.

Of course, Rose seems to support her people strongly too. She doesn't seem interested in just using people and then tossing them away. She is as loyal to them as they seem to be to her.
Centcomm 6th Mar 2014, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

you are dead on there actually :D
