The Rat That Makes The Rules: Have you ever heard of positive relationships

THE KING: i can't tell if that's mocking daroach or being self-depreciating.

edge: why not both

THE KING: don't cover this up with memes you edgy brat let us talk to you here.

THE KING: i did this so maybe we'd have some friends who understand what we've been through.

THE KING: you know cause that shit FEELS NICE.

THE KING: and maybe, just maybe, getting friends we have things in common with might help us deal with the issues that came from those specific things we have in common.

THE KING: thinking we were in the right and reeling from a reality check, getting possessed, losing to kirby again and again and again, that kind of thing.

THE KING: like, do you know how much i needed someone to talk to after i got possessed those first couple of times? i had constant nightmares for SO LONG.

THE KING: so can we just try to get along? i don't mind some casual roasting but let's stay off eachother's throats alright?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Look at this man giving us inspirational speeches for fucking free what a god 

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Marx if you ever misbehave again i will kick your teeth in i'm tearing up rn

THE KING: what the fuck happened to daroach

enterprisingIntellect: I think he's fucking dead.

THE KING: does anyone know where he lives?

Daddy: I do.

THE KING: of course you do.

THE KING: why are you such a creep?

Daddy: Know thy enemy, as they say.

Daddy: President Haltmann actually believed that the Squeak Squad would be a point of resistance during his little 'operation', so I have some old data I gathered.

THE KING: did

THE KING: did you have any data on me and my boys?

Daddy: No.

THE KING: man fuck that. i'm offended.

enterprisingIntellect: I think I'd prefer not being spied on, frankly.

THE KING: how does that even work none of you guys have legs?

I can't read: I'm going to pretend I know what that word means and just kind of

I can't read: Step into this teleporter. Susie seems a bit tied up.

Daddy: she's surptudubfkr dtrpmh

THE KING: just go already!

enterprisingIntellect: Wait, does she not know what 'gay' means? I get that we're all from different planets, but considering we all speak the same language and all...

enterprisingIntellect: How does that work anyway? Do you think Susie wears a translator? It'd make sense, considering all that headgear.

THE KING: how do you know what susie looks like?

enterprisingIntellect: Marx showed me a picture of Kirby's 'friend wall'.

enterprisingIntellect: It's just a piece of wall in his house covered in what must be hundreds of pictures of people Kirby considers his friends.

THE KING: how the fuck is that not bigger than his house?

enterprisingIntellect: Lord knows. But at least I know what most of you look like now.

THE KING: lemme guess you're not on there and you're itchin for a spot.

enterprisingIntellect: Pardon!?

THE KING: you heard me.

enterprisingIntellect: I couldn't care less about a picture on a wall, thank you very much!

enterprisingIntellect: Really, I don't know how you came to such a conclusion.

Daddy: Seems as if you care quite a bit, Magolor.

enterprisingIntellect: Seems you've finally wrestled the mighty cuddle-monster away.

Daddy: Seems I've got a pistol with your name on it should you not be silent.

enterprisingIntellect: I may not know my firearms...

Thunder Thot: What!? What happened?

Daddy: She offered to run an errand and got thrown out of a window. No big deal. 

Thunder Thot: THAT IS A VERY BIG DEAL

Daddy: She'll be fine, but in the meantime...

Daddy: Don't touch anything and just get over here, Flamberge is bothering me and I require assistance. 

Thunder Thot: Very well, by the way...

Thunder Thot: Why did you say 'Bonjam'? You aren't from our planet, are you? 

Daddy: It's a rather pretty greeting. I quite like it. Besides, I figured it'd make you feel more at home.

Thunder Thot: That's... Actually rather sweet of you.

Daddy: I try.

Daddy's Little Monster: what are you guys talking about!??

The Rat That Makes The Rules: When a kinky space lesbian and an electric thot love eachother very much

Fuckhands McMike: daroach omg...

Daddy's Little Monster: i don't get it!???

enterprisingIntellect: You know...

enterprisingIntellect: I'm starting to think that the Mages' race don't have a concept of sexuality.

Daddy's Little Monster: what is that like

Daddy's Little Monster: a plant or something!?!?!?

enterprisingIntellect: See? And Francisca asked what 'gay' and 'bisexual' meant.

enterprisingIntellect: Flamberge, what does your face feel regarding romantic and sexual relations?

THE KING: magalor you can't just ask someone that.

enterprisingIntellect: Why not? Everyone in this damned chat is queer in some way or another, she may as well learn now.

THE KING: wait, seriously? everyone?

THE KING: i'm gay but like 

THE KING: everyone?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Claycia and i are established bisexual buddies

vriska: i'm pan.

enterprisingIntellect: I am homosexual.

edge: i'm uh

edge: um

edge: magolor you say it

enterprisingIntellect: Marx is both homosexual and transgender.

edge: thanks could've been more brief but you said the words 7.6/10

Daddy's Little Monster: i am so fucking lost

Daddy's Little Monster: WHAT DO ALL OF THESE WORDS MEAN?!?!??!?!

enterprisingIntellect: No need to panic, Flamberge. It's just a label that says something about you.

enterprisingIntellect: For me, gay means that I am a boy that is romantically and sexually attracted to other boys.

Daddy's Little Monster: but how are you gonna make strong babies with another boy!??!?

enterprisingIntellect: ...So that's how it is, then? I think I understand...

vriska: hearing magolor talk about sexual attraction is putting images in my mind. 

vriska: why.

enterprisingIntellect: Hush Taranza, I'm educating.

edge: here we go fellas

enterprisingIntellect: You don't need to worry about what exactly all the words mean. All you need to know is enough to respect others.

enterprisingIntellect: Understand?

Daddy's Little Monster: but

Daddy's Little Monster: don't you

Daddy's Little Monster: no i don't!!!!!

Daddy's Little Monster: don't people who refuse to make strong children get exiled for insubordination?

Daddy: Well if you wanted one of those, you should've just asked.

Daddy: I'm sorry.

Daddy: Is that good enough?

I can't read: No. You're a liar.

Daddy: A fair assumption.

I can't read: It's a statement of fact.

Daddy: I'd rather you think otherwise, if we're going to be stuck together for the foreseeable future.

Daddy: Can you please tell me what you want, so I can remedy this little issue between us?

I can't read: Well for a start you can cease any plans to further violate our privacy.

Daddy: Fair.

I can't read: And you're going to tell me:

I can't read: Why is my sister so endeared to you?

Daddy: I wouldn't know- I'm not her.

Daddy: I'm surprised myself at what she did. Perhaps she felt she owed me for letting her stay here?

I can't read: One more.

I can't read: I've been reading the chat are you also 'queer'?

Daddy: That's a question I've asked myself a lot growing up.

Daddy: Though in recent times it's not so much a struggle for me, I'm fine being a lesbian.

I can't read: And what does that mean?

Daddy: It's like gay, but for girls. I'm attracted to girls.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: But @Daddy you good

Daddy: It's just the daily mood.

Daddy: That's a big mood.

edge:

Daddy: Marx you walk a dangerous path.

Daddy: But you have my tentative respect for having such large balls.

edge: as someone who moves around on one and who's friends with magolor i think i know a think or two about large balls

Daddy: You've seen his balls?

Meta Knight: Please? I'm not one to beg, but they just... Well, I think they might have a shred of sanity because of this recent development. I'd love to be their friend, but if I'm honest? I don't believe I'm the one for the job.

THE KING: i just don't know, mets.

THE KING: besides, you're a great friend!

THE KING: i don't see why you can't explore this little rabbit hole yourself, since you went as far as to decipher the handle.

Meta Knight: Because all they want to do is fight me! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy that kind of relationship, but it's not what they need.

Meta Knight: This is the first time we're able to properly communicate, and I've never been much of a friend-maker, Kirby usually does that kind of thing for us.

THE KING: you got me there.

THE KING: why don't YOU join the chat?

Meta Knight: No, I'd rather you try this first.

Meta Knight: Maybe later, though. I wouldn't mind talking to Susie.

THE KING: i can give you her @

Meta Knight: Sure, it'll be like a trade.

THE KING sent a contact!

Meta Knight sent a contact!

Meta Knight: ...Why is her nickname 'Daddy'?

Meta Knight: Just what do you DO in that chat?

THE KING: don't you worry about that.

THE KING: i'll think about the offer, alright?

Meta Knight: Much appreciated, thank you friend.

THE KING: speaking of void creatures, meta knight gave me a certain someone's handle because he thinks they belong here

enterprisingIntellect: Oh?

THE KING: i'm not so sure though.

THE KING: it's

THE KING: well

THE KING: man i'm just not sure, from what i know they don't speak the same language as us and they've never communicated at all period before.

THE KING: i think i need a bit more time to think about it. they haven't really shown any kind of remorse for what they've done or like, emotion at all.

THE KING: i have their handle now so i can do it whenever. by the way @Daddy i gave meta knight your handle since he said he wanted to talk to you or something.

Daddy: I'm sure that'll be fun.

enterprisingIntellect: Can you at least give us a name, Dedede? I'm dying of suspense over here.

THE KING: nah i'll wait it's no big deal.

enterprisingIntellect: Don't do this to me.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Hey guys guess what here comes a subject change

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I'm hanging out with bandanna dee and he said he's gonna throw a party soon

The Rat That Makes The Rules: So obviously being the generous and party-loving ratscallion i am

enterprisingIntellect: Awful.

edge: 3.9/10

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I was like 'shit let's make this a Squeak Squad Shindig™'

edge: oh my god

The Rat That Makes The Rules: It's in like a week and a half and i'm inviting @everyone

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Look at that shit all nice and grammatically embedded in that sentence

edge: do you need

edge: entertainment

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Marx if you come up on stage and roll around on that little ball i think i might just lose my fucking mind

The Rat That Makes The Rules: YES IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION

edge: NICE

edge: can i bring kirby

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Kirby is invited to every party ever thrown by default

edge: ok yeah you're right

edge: i was gonna bring him even if you said no you pass the test

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Such sweet anarchy brings a tear to my eye

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Never change you devious little trouble boy

enterprisingIntellect: I'm not really one for parties, and besides; I'd have to fly the Lor Starcutter all the way over from Halcandra... I think I'll pass.

edge: if you come i'll dump a bucket of spaghetti on susie's head

enterprisingIntellect: Hm, looking again, it appears the course to Pop Star is still saved into the Starcutter's computer! Perhaps I'll come along after all.

edge: i'd say hateboner but you're gay and she's probably lesbian

edge: platonic hateboner there we go

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I'm not over the fact your spaceship is called the fucking lor starcutter

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Like we knew you were a weeb but fucking hell

The Rat That Makes The Rules: 'Mine is the hateboner that will pierce the heavens!'

THE KING: BUH

Daddy: Cute, but I don't think there's a universe out there in which Magolor's boner could pierce anything, let alone the heavens.

enterprisingIntellect: This is why I hate you.

Daddy: Hate you too. <3<

enterprisingIntellect: And you called me a Homestuck.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: What did i say about fucking homestuck

Daddy: Hey, Daroach, you said Claycia partakes in shipping, correct?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Yeah

enterprisingIntellect: Don't.

Daddy: Perhaps she could expand her shipping grid if Maglolor 'educated' her about Quadrants.

enterprisingIntellect: I'd request you come to the party so we could settle this like adults, but I doubt your little girlfriend Zan would let me lay a finger on you.

enterprisingIntellect: Shame, I suppose I'll just have to kill her too. What a waste.

THE KING: alright now let's settle down.

edge: jesus mags calm yourself

Daddy: Suppose that's my fault for poking at a being who lives among'st volcanoes. One wrong move, and that little hateboner might erupt, hm?

THE KING: susie stop it.

Daddy: Very well.

enterprisingIntellect is now away!

edge: aw shit

edge: i'll uh

edge: i'll keep an eye on him he likes me somewhat

THE KING: what did i say about being at eachother's throats?

THE KING: i get that you were just joking around but

THE KING: magolor isn't the kinda person who can take that apparently.

Daddy: Tragic.

THE KING: admittedly he was being a complete ass and i expect him to own up for that but

THE KING: when he comes back i want you to both to apologize to eachother.

THE KING: i don't want drama.

Daddy: Yes, father.

Daddy: Just @ me when he's back, I have things to attend to.

Daddy is now away!

THE KING: ughhhh usually i don't mind being called dad but that one felt BAD.

vriska: do you want me to come over.

THE KING: yes please.

vriska: ok. i'm on my way.

Fuckhands McMike: i'm sorry everyone got sad...

THE KING: it's ok claycia.

Daddy: Not Susie.

vriska: what.

Daddy: While she's somewhat repayed her debt owed from the hair incident I still feel like we aren't even.

Daddy: So here I am invading her privacy a bit.

vriska: wait so who are you.

edge: i'd recognize that obnoxious lack of commas anywhere

vriska: marx you don't use any punctuation at all.

edge: shut up point is it's francisca 

Daddy: Correct.

Daddy: She doesn't usually leave her computer unguarded but about an hour ago she suddenly left and locked herself in her room.

Daddy: So here I am.

Daddy's Little Monster: wait, something happened to susie? i haven't been checking in here, oh no!!!!!!!

Daddy: Something with Magolor.

Thunder Thot: Jamblasted, I'll go check on her.

Daddy's Little Monster: me too!!!!!!!!

Thunder Thot is now away.

Daddy's Little Monster is now away.

edge: you'd think they'd care more about you going through her computer huh 

Daddy: I'm looking in her games library...

Daddy: 300 hours clocked into... 'Huniepop'?

edge: isn't that an anime titty game

Daddy: Let's see.

Daddy: From looking at the title screen I believe this is a game about breasts indeed.

Daddy: Closing that.

edge: so @vriska how's the hang out with dedede

vriska: we're streaming youtube poops onto his big tv.

edge: that is the single greatest idea i've ever heard 

Daddy: She has a SoundCloud.

Daddy: Seems she makes a lot of playlists.

edge: does she rap

Daddy: I'll check for that later.

Daddy: Her playlists are just titled with single symbols what the fuck does that mean.

Daddy: I'm going to click on '⚡'.

edge: taking bets i'm betting nsfw electrocution kink asmr

Daddy: I don't know what this is.

Daddy: https://soundcloud.com/moeshop/magic

Daddy: What language are they speaking?

edge: weeaboo with sprinkles of our communal language

Daddy: I don't speak weeaboo. 

Daddy: I'm going to look up the lyrics.

Daddy: Holy shit this is

DaddyReally sappy. It's a cute love song?

Daddy: I would have never thought she listened to things like this...

edge: today we have learned that susie is in fact a soft weeb

edge: the world rejoices for this crucial information

Daddy: I'll leave the rest of her playlists alone I want to look at more things.

Daddy: Pictures.

edge: oh boy can't wait to find her pastel pink hentai doujins 

Daddy: There's an unnamed picture right at the bottom in a folder of named pictures. Suspicious. 

Daddy: It's...

Daddy: Really low resolution.

Daddy: Looks like Susie standing next to a man with facial hair. Who is that?

edge: man with facial hair gee i wonder if only there were literally any other way to narrow it down other than 'man with facial hair'

edge: could it be that susie has a super secret picture of herself and her long lost brother mario mario it's as likely as any other fucking possibility

Daddy: Purple facial hair.

edge: better

edge: but still i don't have much of an idea

edge: hang on

Daddy: What are you doing?

edge: asking kirby if he knows a guy with purple facial hair

Daddy: Well?

edge: that

edge: uh

edge: ...

edge: that would be susie's very dead father

Daddy: ...This may be my cue to cease snooping.

This is the start of your message history with Meta Knight.

Meta Knight: Child... A not-so-little bird has informed me that you are in a moment of strife.

Meta Knight: What ails you?

Daddy: ggo awqay

Meta Knight: Listen, I understand that the last we met, it was on rather unpleasant terms.

Meta Knight: But would you humour me, for but a moment?

Daddy: wgateve r

Meta Knight: From what I understand, you've had an argument with someone.

Meta Knight: I'm going to tell you a secret, ok?

Daddy: wbhat

Meta Knight: When Dedede spoke to me, at great length, about his wish to gather you all in a place where he could talk to and keep an eye on you...

Meta Knight: He spoke of you very specifically.

Meta Knight: He was so worried about you.

Meta Knight: You, who'd grown up alone, you, who'd lost everything.

Meta Knight: The King may fight like a brute and intimidate those who don't know him... But his heart is softer than any cloud in Dream Land.

Meta Knight: He saw hope in you, potential to do good. He was scared that if you were left alone to live in spite and anger, you'd fester into something dark.

Meta Knight: He saw hope within them all, but it was you that he was most genuinely scared for.

Meta Knight: He wanted you to connect with the others, he wanted you to never have to be alone again.

Meta Knight: Do you understand? Locking yourself from those who love you... It will only cause you to fester.

Meta Knight: It's in your nature to gently mock others, it's simply how you express yourself- It's common.

Meta Knight: But when that mocking turns into genuine hate is when you put yourself and others at risk of conflict. You're only harming yourself by antagonizing those with the potential to truly understand you, the girl who had been alone for so long. 

Meta Knight: Is my message clear?

Daddy: i

Daddy: yeah

Daddy: ugh, i'm sorry

Daddy: i never really

Daddy: i was never good at the whole relationships thing

Daddy: friendships, families, love

Daddy: it was never natural to me.

Daddy: they can all recover together and learn off of eachother, but not me. i've never been that kind of person.

Meta Knight: Come now... Do you know what you're saying? That is all the more reason to fight for this, fight tooth and nail to keep your heart open until one day, you'll realize:

Meta Knight: You don't have to fight anymore.

Meta Knight: Your will is impossibly strong, I've seen it firsthand.

Meta Knight: You can do it! You have my faith.

Daddy: if i have to fight for it then what's the point? it's fake.

Meta Knight: Nothing born of such stalwart determination could be worth less than shining gold. Remember that, and your struggle will always have meaning.

Daddy: ...

Daddy: I've... Been childish. Thank you, Meta Knight. I'm sorry for everything that happened between us before.

Meta Knight: It has already been forgiven.

~Starchild~: hey magolor!

~Starchild~: i didn't even know you were on here... talk about a coincidence! 

~Starchild~: marx told me about what happened with susie... i wanted to see if you were doing ok!

enterprisingIntellect: I don't need your pity.

~Starchild~: come on, don't be like that...

~Starchild~: just listen!

~Starchild~: you live in a harsh world full of nasty things... all your life, everyone and everything has been against you! isn't that right?

~Starchild~: it must've been hard... 

enterprisingIntellect: Don't sit there and talk about me like you understand, you understand NOTHING.

~Starchild~: but i do! ever since i appeared in dream land it's been adventure after adventure, struggle after struggle... it's made me really appreciate peaceful times!

~Starchild~: i've had to fight constantly for everything, with void termina, the stakes were higher than ever! i fought hard for everyone.

enterprisingIntellect: How nice for you. I'm really proud of your achievement. Kindly off yourself and leave me be.

~Starchild~: ouch... you're really mad, huh..?

~Starchild~: you shouldn't say things like that you know, even if you're really mad.

~Starchild~: that's how people get hurt, and that all reflects on you somewhere down the line. 

enterprisingIntellect: Just get to the damned point.

~Starchild~: alright then.

~Starchild~: you're really strong, magolor. you survived in a world like halcandra all alone! that's impressive all by itself.

~Starchild~: you were smart enough to trick me, and even though that hurt, i was really impressed! 

~Starchild~: it didn't hurt for long.

~Starchild~: you and me have both fought really hard for what we want, so i thought i might be able to get it across...

~Starchild~: that maybe me and you could learn a thing or two from eachother!

~Starchild~: i'll admit, i can be a bit of a pushover... you're assertive and tough! i wish i could tell people 'no' like you.

~Starchild~: in turn, i think that there's something you need to learn, and i could teach you!

~Starchild~: when people make you mad, you don't need to react.

~Starchild~: you need to relax and just let some things wash over you like the ocean tide...

~Starchild~: that reminds me, we should go to the beach sometime, magolor! that'd be fun!

~Starchild~: hehe.

enterprisingIntellect: Do you even know what you're going on about!?

~Starchild~: not really! i know what i want you to take away, but it doesn't really matter how i say it, right? so long as i don't upset you.

~Starchild~: i want you to understand that not everything needs to be taken in, sometimes you can just let things go past you!

~Starchild~: when you can do that, you can filter out the things that make you mad.

~Starchild~: of course, don't be like me all the way! if someone's really trying to upset you, stick up for yourself!

~Starchild~: just... don't take every little thing as a declaration of war. 

~Starchild~: you've fought constantly all your life, but talking to your friends isn't a battle. you don't need to fight with us.

~Starchild~: there have been times when i've been really mad.

~Starchild~: i don't talk about them, they upset me. i've never told anyone about how i feel in those moments where i've been truly angry.

~Starchild~: i've wanted to take the world and crush it, just consume everything for a chance at some peace and quiet...

~Starchild~: but i've always stayed strong! if i ate everything, who'd be there to share cake with me? it'd be pretty lonely.

enterprisingIntellect: YOU? I can't imagine you having thoughts like that.

~Starchild~: take it as you will, but it's true...

~Starchild~: and it takes a lot for me to tell you that! i was typing for so long, hehe...

~Starchild~: how about you come to the party and hang out with me and marx? we can share cake! i'll take a picture of the three of us for my friend wall!

~Starchild~: there's always room for one more on there.

enterprisingIntellect: You...

enterprisingIntellect: You are an infuriating creature, you know that?

enterprisingIntellect: To be so positive in all walks of life... How I envy you.

~Starchild~: is that a dramatic yes?

enterprisingIntellect: ...

enterprisingIntellect: Fine.

~Starchild~: good! no fighting susie?

enterprisingIntellect: No fighting Susie.

~Starchild~: great! besides...

~Starchild~: You know I could defeat you both at once, right? Ha. Ha. Ha.

enterprisingIntellect: Wait, what!? Kirby!?

~Starchild~: what? what's the matter? you're actin all scared! hehe.

enterprisingIntellect: N-Nothing...

enterprisingIntellect: I apologize for threatening to kill you and Zan, as well as making assumptions about your relationship and generally antagonizing you. I will attempt to keep my cool in future interactions.

Susie: I apologize for making fun of you relentlessly and not picking up that it was genuinely upsetting you, this is a fault of my own inability to recognize social cues and you have done nothing wrong.

enterprisingIntellect: Apology accepted.

Daddy: Likewise.

THE KING: see this kids is what i like to see.

THE KING: good job!

enterprisingIntellect: Hooray.

Daddy: Homestuck is pretty good, anyway. I just make fun of it for the jokes.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT HOMESTUCK

Fuckhands McMike: daroach! shush! don't ruin the moment!

edge: thank god that's dealt with

Daddy's Little Monster: YEAH!! NO MORE SADNESS!!!!!!!!!

I can't read: How nice.

Thunder Thot: I'm just glad you're feeling better, Susie.

enterprisingIntellect: Gee, thanks.

Thunder Thot: No offense! It's just worse when I can see it in front of me...

enterprisingIntellect: None taken.

vriska: a cheer for not hatred.

THE KING: i've been thinking.

THE KING: since we've demonstrated a level of maturity enough to settle this 

THE KING: i think i might take up meta's offer and add his little 'friend' in here

THE KING: while we're all riding this friendship high.

THE KING: this could possibly be a really bad choice but hey meta said he'd join if it didn't work out or once we've got them talking sense so

THE KING: you guys ready?

vriska: yes.

Daddy: I believe so.

Thunder Thot: I think we can handle it, how bad could it be?

edge: famous last words

enterprisingIntellectJust do it the suspense is ripping me asunder.

THE KING: alright

THE KING: here goes.

THE KING: hope this doesn't like, end the universe or something.

THE KING: brace yourselves.

THE KING: how about this, marx takes galacta knight to the land of their dms and marx can teach them all about memes and maybe how to not do the glitchy thing.

THE KING: sound good?

Thunder Thot: Better than them being here.

Daddy: Sounds alright, my apologies for lurking.

enterprisingIntellect: Once they're calmed down a tad, I wouldn't mind discussing some things with them.

Fuckhands McMike: they seem... interesting...

Daddy: They'll have a harem at this rate.

enterprisingIntellect: You'd know a thing or two about harems, wouldn't you?

Daddy's Little Monster: what's a harem???

THE KING: by royal decree this conversation topic begone

enterprisingIntellect: This abuse of power... Father, how could you sink so low...!?

Daddy: Not towards father.

enterprisingIntellect: I see.

Fuckhands McMike: careful! you'll summon daroach.

Daddy: Not even Daroach can stand against my overwhelming crush on Rose Lalonde.

Daddy: Bold of you to assume any of us stopped.

THE KING: i'm sending all of this to meta and he's uh, well

THE KING: he seems pretty floored

THE KING: i think he'll need some time to comprehend the fact that marx taught galacta how to meme.

Galacta Knight: DID YOU SAY META

Galacta Knight: AS IN META KNIGHT?

THE KING: absolutely not i in fact meant our friend meta who's name is short for

THE KING: metal 

Galacta Knight: METAL.

edge: alright i got a damage report

Fuckhands McMike: damage..?

edge: i just teleported inside since everything looked fine from outside and 

edge: everything's just completely frozen

edge: or at least a lot of stuff is

THE KING: is francisca ok?

enterprisingIntellect: Her message's text was strange, the one she sent right before the chat went silent for a bit.

enterprisingIntellect: It could well be that she's having a rather dangerous reaction to the presence of Galacta Knight.

edge: man what the fuck did i say about things being serious

edge: i swear to god i'm gonna do the meanest fucking fortnite taunt when i see them and they'll crack up and everything will be stupid again

enterprisingIntellect: You play Fortnite?

edge: absolutely not i have taste

THE KING: just please make sure everyone's ok in there.

Fuckhands McMike: please!

edge: man where's daroach when you need him

edge: didn't he say he has experience with frozen stuff

edge: i mean it'd make sense for him to break into where francisca lives and return the favour

edge: oh wait shit i found them

edge: they're all kinda crowded around francisca who is

edge: completely encased in ice

edge: i don't think they've noticed me yet which is wack because every time i send a message susie's computer makes a noise

enterprisingIntellect: What's their condition?

edge: flamberge's trying to talk to her while also trying to melt the ice

edge: zan is asking susie what to do

edge: susie isn't facing me so i have no idea what she's doing but she's just kinda standing there from what i can see

edge: i think this is my time to shine boys (feat. claycia)

Fuckhands McMike: thanks, marx.


 

Marx tentatively stepped into the room, slowly walking towards the commotion. Susie heard his approach, whipping around with Zan following her actions, both of them setting their eyes upon the jester before them. Zan immediately drew her weapon and held it in front of Susie, who was looking at Marx with caution.

"Who are you!? How did you get here?" Zan barks in Marx's direction, he rolls his eyes.

"It's me, Marx. Nice to meet you too." 

Zan lowers her weapon, sighing in relief. Susie turns back to Francisca before speaking:

"After reading Galacta Knight's last message, her magic went completely out of control, some of the engines are stalling due to the lowered temperature and Flamberge is struggling to melt the enchanted ice. The only way to make it stop spreading seems to be Francisca..." Susie spoke gravely, her breath fogging up before her face. Marx didn't particularly mind the cold, but he still found himself fidgeting in the suddenly serious situation. Zan turns to Susie with a worried expression.

"I'm sure she can be consoled, it's just that she can't hear us under all that ice! If she's left alone under there..." Zan's words caused Susie's eyes to snap open, she'd heard something like that before. Susie shivers as she bows her head, mind racing with too many plans to focus on, none of them seeming like they'd work...

Marx grumbles, after his 'therapy' with Kirby, he'd learned to deal with his own issues through humour, and it had mostly worked! The only problem was that any kind of serious situation made him nervous, as if all his growth could be undone in an instant.

"Well - I could do something?" Marx blurts, locking his eyes on the entombed Francisca; Flamberge turns to look at Marx with pleading eyes.

"Marx, if not even Flamberge's fire could stop it-" Zan is cut off by Susie covering her mouth.

"I'll admit, Marx, I don't know a lot about you..." Susie looks slightly down on Marx due to their height difference.

"But all sources claim that your power is not to be trifled with. Do what you must; but blowing up the ship won't get us anywhere." Zan's eyes widen at that, this little thing could be that strong!?

Marx stared intently at Francisca, Flamberge nervously moving aside to stand with her sister and Susie. The jester looked down toward the ground, smiling. Zan had fought Marx before, but all he'd done was laugh and kick beach balls at her! Kirby and the others did most of the work, what could possibly do!? She huffed, watching to see what kind of sorry excuse for an attack this creature would cough up.

...

An eerie song begins to play...

Suddenly, shining golden wings emerge from Marx's body! Rainbow scales made of light fill the space in his wingspan and Marx's eyes turn snake-like as he charges his attack! Both mages gasp in shock as the jester folds his wings inward, while Susie cast her eyes towards one of the many screens located inside the ship, checking the red recording light is still on.

...What? No use wasting good data like this.

A flash of light indicates Marx's attack was fully charged, he all at once unfolded his wings to release a horde of spinning blades! Nova's power... It was enough to cut through the ice! Francisca's almost unconscious body fell limply to the floor. Marx returned to normal, Zan being frozen in shock as Flamberge immediately ran towards her sister.

"You... You held back on me..." Zan chokes out through her mounting fear... What was he?

enterprisingIntellect: It could surely crush me, with little effort mind you.

Daddy: It's a story. An absolute sequence of events that occurred.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Kinky space lesbian actually kinky space bi?

Daddy: No, this wasn't kinky biting.

Daddy: It was 'I'm going to rip your face off, give me back my phone' biting.

Fuckhands McMike: you're my second best friend

Fuckhands McMike: susie will be my third!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Who's the first

Fuckhands McMike: elline <3

vriska: wholesome

Daddy: Well, they do say there's nothing better than falling in love with your best friend.

Daddy: Unless you feel like you'd mess up your friendship, should you confess.

vriska: who hurt you.

Daddy: Not a particular person.

vriska: how many people hurt you?

Daddy: Oh, You Know.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: She's rapidly approaching 3am form

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Finally the return

Fuckhands McMike: i-i was only kidding susie...

Fuckhands McMike: since you asked us, how's your morning?

Daddy: I'm doing inspections.

Daddy: Zan kept asking to help but she'd be out of her element, this stuff's all Haltmann tech.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Claycia

Fuckhands McMike: wow weird i just got a notification but there's no message here?? weird.

Daddy: You quoted me <3.

Fuckhands McMike: hehe

Daddy: I was thinking of touching down on Popstar for a supply run, without boring you all with the details I'm at about halfway on my current supply load.

Fuckhands McMike: details?

Daddy: Well, it's all science tech stuff, I'm sure it'd bore you all to death.

Fuckhands McMike: i like hearing people ramble!

vriska: you were the one who wanted company, right? 

Daddy: I'm serious! It's for nerds!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Perfect, claycia and taranza are your exact target audience

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Unlike me, known chad 

Daddy: Well, if you insist.

Daddy: This ship was made for long business trips originally, and it employs Haltmann Spacial Compression technology for supplies.

Daddy: Each Supply Core contains provisions for about 1 month and is hooked up to a large control unit that distributes the stored items to the relevant areas.

Daddy: While compressed, the objects are in a kind of stasis so they can't go bad. I have four cores currently, two of them still full of the stocks loaded onto the ship when I first took it and the other two filled by me.

Daddy: I'm usually pretty paranoid about keeping them full, but outside of this system there are usually resupply stations for galactic travelers who aren't blessed with the ability to just breathe in space or fly by themselves.

Daddy: Lucky bastards.

Daddy: The core I've got plugged in right now is starting to run out, which wouldn't be a problem usually. But this time I want to refill it straight away rather than wait another month.

Fuckhands McMike: wow! that's... nothing like what we have in seventopia!

Fuckhands McMike: there's no real thinking behind anything, me and elline just kind of

Fuckhands McMike: make everything work!

Fuckhands McMike: why is it you're filling it up so soon?

Daddy: W

Daddy: Well-

The Rat That Makes The Rules: For someone who takes herself so seriously you type like an anime character

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Oh my god you and magalor really are the same

Daddy: Fuck off.

Daddy: Not that I don't like him but I'm way better looking.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: SHOTS

vriska: that ramble only slowed down her 3am transformation slightly it seems.

vriska: don't let daroach distract you though, wanna tell us why?

Daddy: It's just that

Daddy: The two cores I filled, they're full of things I picked out, and the rooms that the Mages are staying in are just bland unused spaces.

Daddy: I wanted to go down to Popstar so they could buy things they like, and feel more at home before they eventually move out and stuff.

vriska: if you're looking for a planet-bound home for them, why bother letting them decorate your ship?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: ^

vriska: if you ask me, i think it'd just make saying goodbye harder.

Daddy: They deserve a proper home, I just want them to be comfortable in the meantime.

vriska: and what about you? won't it be depressing, putting all their thing back in storage or letting them leave with them?

vriska: a month can feel like a long time, won't eating all their favourite food make you sad?

Fuckhands McMike: taranza..?

vriska: being lonely's the worst feeling in the world, i think.

vriska: and i also think you're happier spending time with them than you are alone.

vriska: are you gonna deny that?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Holy shit

The Rat That Makes The Rules: You make a lotta good points but like

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Are you ok?

vriska: looking at the stars makes me think about feelings.

vriska: and living around the things someone else loves can only hurt you, from experience.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Where do you live

vriska: what

vriska: susie you little shit this is about YOUR feelings!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: It's about me giving you a hug in t-minus friendship and waking up all my crew at almost three in the fucking morning

Fuckhands McMike: i'm sending you internet hugs!

vriska: aw man

vriska: you guys

Daddy: I'll think about it, Taranza.

Daddy: Daroach is right, you do make some valid points.

Daddy: None more valid than yourself, of course.

vriska: too much appreciation...

vriska: come on i'm not emo often let me have this.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Too late

Daddy: I suppose I'll ask them tomorrow if they'd be alright staying with me, but it really just feels...

Daddy: Desperate, I suppose? Clingy? 

Fuckhands McMike: susie i haven't known you for long

Fuckhands McMike: but i love you, ok? you're a great friend!

Fuckhands McMike: so trust me when i say that i think you've earned being a little clingy after living alone for such a long time...

Daddy: You seem as though you've aged all of a sudden, were you always like this?

Fuckhands McMike: it just takes me a while to open up fully is all... when i'm with just you three, i feel at ease.

Fuckhands McMike: that doesn't mean i'm any less uwu, though.

Fuckhands McMike: uwu.

Daddy: Yes, uwu. Very uwu.

vriska: uuwuu.

vriska: oh hey i think i see daroach's ship.

vriska: it's pretty cool.

vriska: i guess it makes sense he isn't using his phone while flying, huh.

vriska: hmm.

vriska: it's going pretty fast.

vriska: i can see where this is going.

Daddy: Have I perhaps made a poor decision?

vriska: wait no he's

vriska: he's up there, i see him.

vriska: he's not at the wheel. what the fuck.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Then we had the great angstfest between Magalor and Susie

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Then 4 was Galacta with some sprinkles of Francisca 

The Rat That Makes The Rules: And 5 was back to Marx after a bunch of worldbuilding

Fuckhands McMike: i love this family

Daddy: You know Daroach, I think this is why Haltmann was afraid of you.

vriska: you're lucky you're so soft.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I use conditioner

Daddy: People don't?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Dark Nebula sure as shit didn't my man was crusty

Daddy: It's not often you refer to a proper noun, well, properly.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Meh

The Rat That Makes The Rules: It's to highlight the crust

Fuckhands McMike: i'm feeling... a love mood.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: You always feel a love mood

Fuckhands McMike: no like... especially

Fuckhands McMike: i love you guys...

Fuckhands McMike: we're like a lil squad within the squad

Fuckhands McMike: with unhealthy sleeping habits

Daddy: And sometimes Daroach talks about eating ass or concepts beyond our comprehension.

Daddy: It's beautiful.

Daddy: Hey wait a fucking minute, why are YOU always up so late?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: she's writing fanfiction

Fuckhands McMike: actually my mood just changed i'm feeling a love mood with the new No Daroach Included dlc

Fuckhands McMike: save it for the mages, juliet!

vriska: you can actually be kinda sassy sometimes, huh.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: She's just really invested in her susie ships and gets too flustered to take a compliment

Fuckhands McMike: daroooach...

Daddy: No worries, love, I'm not planning to steal you away anytime soon.

Daddy: Though, I could always make arrangements...

Fuckhands McMike: quit it!!!!!!!!

vriska: why must you bully her like this.

Daddy: Because I love her.

Daddy: Wait, shit, that wasn't-

Daddy: You know what I mean.

Daddy: hmph! unu

 

3:34AM

Villains Anonymous 

vriska: day six hundred and twelve.

vriska: he's still hugging me.

Daddy: Nice.

vriska: it's only thematically appropriate.

Daddy: Second only to eight hundred and eighty eight.

vriska: true.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Why do i get the sneaking suspicion you guys are talking about a banned topic

Daddy: Say, Taranza, don't you usually become a complete cryptid when tired? You're acting rather normal.

vriska: that's my secret cap.

vriska: i'm always tired.

vriska: no but seriously i had a nap earlier so i wasn't gonna be sleeping anytime soon anyway.

Daddy: Ah.

vriska: what about you? why aren't you eating anyone's hair?

Daddy: Not sure, perhaps doing maintenance sobers me up.

Daddy: If it'd make you feel better I could recreate the effect via alcohol.

vriska: no what the fuck.

Daddy: Fair enough.

vriska: don't scare me like that jesus

Daddy: Aw, you care about me?

vriska: don't even try that! you know i care.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Did you guys know how many arms taranza has

The Rat That Makes The Rules: He has four of them

The Rat That Makes The Rules: FOUR OF THEM

Fuckhands McMike: that's twice as many as i have..!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: And like he meant it when he said he was fuzzy it's like hugging a stuffed animal

Fuckhands McMike: so cute...

The Rat That Makes The Rules: He's hiding now 

The Rat That Makes The Rules: We gottem boys

vriska: daroach really is a chad this is bullying

vriska: but wait

vriska: why would a chad hug a nerd?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: When you put it that way, it's really more of an emotional support headlock

Daddy: Wait a second.

Daddy: Am I going crazy? There's a bottle of wine on the table, did I already drink? Am I hallucinating? Someone ground me.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Your name is susie you were just doing checks on your space ship and talking to your friends

The Rat That Makes The Rules: You said you didn't want to drink tonight, and you were discussing your feelings.

Daddy: Ok, ok. That checks, thanks.

Daddy: Though I honestly wasn't expecting it to be you.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I work with a man over the age of 60 I of all people should know how to remind someone who's forgetting shit

Daddy: Oh yeah, that guy.

Daddy: Anyways, back to the matter at hand, it couldn't have been Marx that took it; he's been gone for too long.

Daddy: How old is he, anyway?

vriska: come on do you really think that would stop him either way.

Daddy: Marx can do a lot of things, but I'm pretty sure stealing my wine across time and space is beyond his power.

vriska: the mages don't know a lot about daily life things, it's possible that one of them got thirsty and is now having their first drunk experience somewhere on your ship.

Fuckhands McMike: that's... not good...

Daddy: oh shti 

Fuckhands McMike: good luck finding them!! hurry!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Damn she went ZOOM

The Rat That Makes The Rules: This oughta be a laugh

The Rat That Makes The Rules: And by that i mean it better, because the other alternatives are leaning more on the depressive side and i'm not about that

Fuckhands McMike: hopefully they're alright...

Daddy

Daddy: Help.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: What happened?

Daddy: Things??

Daddy: I found Zan in the bridge and she thought the wine was juice

Daddy: She's crying

Daddy: Whta do I do

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Hug? God you making typos is weird

Daddy: Hugging, ok, hugging.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Is it working?

Daddy: She's talking, give me a minute.

Daddy: She was feeling a little blue before she found the drink because she really wants to be useful to me, but can't do much with the technology on the ship.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Right

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Makes sense, she was like pretty much a servant to that muppet looking fuck

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Got her mind all poisoned and shit, thinking she's gotta live to serve

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Makes me fucking sick

Daddy: Mhm.

Daddy: I'm not gonna recite everything cause, y'know, privacy and all, but I think we'll be ok.

Daddy: She won't let go of me, but that's fine, It's not like my arms will go numb.

The Rat That Makes The Rules:  Yeah arms are for fucking chumps

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Floaty hand gang all the way

The Rat That Makes The Rules: You're sure she's alright?

Daddy: Yes, though I appreciate your worrying. 

Daddy: You aren't nearly the harsh chad you think.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Yeah

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I know

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I got a reputation to uphold is all

Daddy: What was that you said, about character arcs?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Heh

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Just keep an eye on your drunk girlfriend

Daddy: What, gonna throw up a rose while flipping your cape as you leave?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Keep talkin' shit and I just MIGHT

Daddy: Speaking of talking, Zan isn't. I think she passed out.

Daddy: Or she's just enjoying the hug.

Daddy: I hope so.

Daddy: Y'know, I don't remember the last time I gave or received a hug? This isn't so bad, I thought it'd be uncomfortable.

Daddy: Father dearest was never much of a hugger.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Me and the Squeaks gotta uphold that tough guy aura y'know

The Rat That Makes The Rules: But when a bro needs a hug

The Rat That Makes The Rules: He needs a hug

The Rat That Makes The Rules: No shame in that

Daddy: I suppose Francisca needed a very special airborne hug?

The Rat That Makes The Rules: MY FUCKING BATHTUB SUSIE

Daddy: You said it wasn't the first time!

The Rat That Makes The Rules: THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S OK

Daddy: Well, she did her best, and that's all that matters.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Whatever you say

The Rat That Makes The Rules: *Throws rose up into the air and flips cape*

The Rat That Makes The Rules: I'm gonna pass out on this plush spider skull

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Seriously he's like the perfect height for that

Daddy: Seems as if we're both stuck in some emotionally charged hugs.

Daddy: Goodnight, Daroach.

The Rat That Makes The Rules: Night Susie


 

Daroach is a nice guy, you think.

'You' of course being Susie, represented in the second person rather than the third for some reason unbeknownst to you, probably something to do with comfort zones.

Something silly like that.

Regardless, tonight has certainly been a night, you were only planning on a quick maintenance check before bed, but now you've got a lightning mage clinging to you for dear life and some questions that beg asking, such as if she'd like to, oh y'know, live with you for the foreseeable future? No big deal, co-habitation with three ancient mages in a high-tech spaceship can't be too hard or jarring, right? Claycia said you'd earned being a little clingy, but in all your travels across the galaxy, had being clingy really gotten you anywhere? Besides sad, that is. 

Thankfully, that train of thought crashed and burned upon Zan slightly shifting in her sleep. A small lock of her hair tickled the back of your hand and you noticed her hat had fallen off at some point; you'd like to retrieve it for her, but it's in the microwave. Across the room.


Why.

How long was she left on her own after finding that drink?

God, you're gonna suck at accommodating them, are you even taking care of yourself properly? No, that's not right, they aren't babies, they can look after themselves to an extent, they just need help adjusting... They need help to feel secure in this new world. You gently run a hand through Zan's hair, suppose she must be feeling pretty secure right now. You hope.

She just mumbled, that's so cute? What the hell? It's nothing discernable, just babbling, but it takes your mind off of the heavy questions. You can figure things out in the morning. For now, you decide to take a leaf out of the great Daroach's book and faceplant directly into Zan's hair as a makeshift pillow.

Smells like lemons.
