I’m gonna go get my friends back and try to help Laura while I’m at it.

So be it. Make sure you come back... sis.

Dervan, I'll listen to you. It is important to keep our support between us strong. I recommended you attacking, but do you want me to strengthen your attack first instead? or something else?

suggestor's note: I do not think you're able to give us items and then corprealize inside Null (assuming that works) in one turn. I remember it took me one turn to give Laura my items. Unless Devoid allow, you might want to consider just going in with your items unless you want to use one turn to give us items.

inner thoughts: Why can't I remember getting those instructions, let alone reading them? That is weird... well screw it, since I can't do much of anything, I'm going somewhere else. I am not anyone's fricken babysitter.

inner thoughts: Besides, what is most important to me now, I need to find that snickerdoodle cookie Mr Crumpet and make sure he is okay. He is like, my only bestest friendest in the worldest and he has been pretty quiet as of late which is concerning...

*is leaving Essence and Laura to explore another part of his body to find Mr. Crumpet. Is also checking his inventory for any kind of instructions he may have received from Ember to read and make sure he didn't misplace it somewhere*

Shoot, I was so sure Ember was causing him to get stronger after every spirit we kill. I can only hope Scarred can figure out what is going on inside.

Null growing bigger most likely accelerated the speed of Laura getting eaten by this thing.

So we're back to square one. And I think we've exhausted all of our options. I really now have no idea what to do anymore.

This monster can pretty much kill me with one hit now. The most I can do is defend and heal myself...

...and pray for a miracle.

Dervan, when it is your turn again, I will not blame you if you contact someone you may have given your business card to in order to have them rip up your business card and have you escape like Lorence for example. This is feeling like a lost cause.

I'll start my turn and try to defend like you suggested. I can only hope it does not break through our defenses.

Like I said, Dervan, when it is your turn again, I'll understand if you want to call someone to get you out of here with your business card as I do not see a solution at all here. If I can at least save you, I'll at least have a silver lining here knowing I accomplished something in saving someone's life here.

inner thoughts: Hmph, how does E-scent expect me to get work done efficiently when she is well aware my memories are being lost? How does she expect to win if she is overlooking simple things like that in battle? and this also proves that she really is just using me like a tool just like everyone else... and is just going to take the rest of my mind and dispose of me when she is done with this battle... But that doesn't matter now, what matters is...

*uses void speak to talk privately with Mr. Crumpet*

CRUMPY! There you are! What a relief. I am so glad to see that those squatters, like Ember, left you alone at least... uh... they didn't hurt you, did they?

Perhaps it might be Stockholm syndrome you've been feeling, but you've always been a true supportive friend to me and has never used me and betrayed me me like everyone else.

I don't care what kind of shit I end up in, as long as you are with me, I am absolutely happy.

*gives Mr. Crumpet a hug* At least I think you are my friend? Those pests are ruining my memories, the only part of me I have left after I lost control of my body.

By the way, the answer to your question on why it takes so long for you to die is quite obvious: I haven't consumed the grim reaper yet! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpaOy8b8X6A)... I think his name was... what was it? the Ambassador? I'm forgetting.

Now that I answered your question, answer a couple of mine... what was her name again? demario? De-maria? Diarrhea? Demoria? yeah Demoria sorry

1st question: did you happen to overhear Demoria ever mentioned a fail-safe protocol to a situation where I lose control of my body, and start losing memories?

2nd question: Has Demoria ever mentioned if that Dream god, and his slave, Laura can fix a person's mind up? I think my mind is broken, and forcing them to fix it might work if they can.

Really any advice is fine, friend. Thanks

Hmm, well, while we wait, there is one thing I've been wondering regarding Ember's actions: when I saw her with my moon card, Ember seemed to have been scratching Null, specifically the location where the muscular creepy soul is, (the Rage Within). some kind of pink liquid was coming out of the scratch mark of Null.

Now if I had to guess, because she was scratching Null, she was most likely infecting him with something, which is quite odd. If I had to guess, she is using this infection not to Null's advantage, but to her's. I do not know if that is what is causing the growth, or if it is allowing her to take total control of Null's body, but whatever the case, it does not seem to bode well for us.

when it is my turn again, I might have to consider using High Priestess' Exorcism card combination not on us, but on Null to get rid of whatever status effect she caused on Null. It might put a damper on whatever Ember is planning

Which is why I must ask to make sure, Dervan: in your career, do you know of any instances of an infection from a pink liquid substance and what effects it might have on someone or something?

inner thoughts: Speaking of the moon card, I'm gonna need this card repaired somehow. I feel I might need it more than just this battle. Using this card will be a last resort for this battle...

Hows this then for yah’ prick face?
No. 909962 ID: 3583d1

More than anything Essence I think this fight shows just what a power hungry coward you are. Every fight has been on your terms, and only when you had the distinct advantage and while I can’t fault you for that, you don’t take any risks what so ever. Hell you even ran from Scarred who wanted to give you a chance at happiness. But nope, evil take over of Ana it is! You’re just laughably predictable by this point, a joke, a one-trick pony. You’re boring.

So you're just a figment of my imagination... I guess you're right. Mr. Crumpet has been gone for a very long time... or at least I think he is gone, or maybe he never existed in the first place. Either way, that is pretty depressing. At least you took on a form that I feel most comfort in seeing

But wow, if you are really my imagination, then that must mean that even my subconscious can't stand being around me like everyone else. And when you asked why it is taking so long to die in here, that must mean I am wondering to myself when I can finally die. That is... pretty unhealthy for me to think about, jeez. I'm not depressed... am I? Um... lets push those bad thoughts back.

Let me just say to make this clear to you... er... myself rather: I know Demoria has been only using me this whole time, I am only sticking with her so that she may feed me and, if I play my cards right, I will slowly manipulate her to do what I want until I have total control over her...

but I guess that is just a pipe dream. I notice all she ever does is wait for the most comfortable moment to do any sort of action which is leading us to looooong periods of inactivity. She hasn't even been feeding me to make me stronger, like that mini absurdity guy. I believe she might actually be refusing to make the void stronger because maybe... she is afraid of me and what I will become? Who knows.

But I guess the reason I left and came here because I know if I help Essence, my memories will be wiped and she will just dispose of me when she is done with me, and if I help Laura, those voices are just going to finish me off once I show my weakness. So there was really no point, I wanted to at least save Mr. Crumpet out of this even though he doesn't exist.

So tell ya what, here is what I am going to do: I'll go sneak back in hiding in the shadows while those two are distracted and try to kill that purple flame myself. I will have to figure out a way to do this stealthily and find a way to keep that thing quiet when I attack it. I might have a weapon as well. I was a sword fighter in my first life after all.

Unless you can think of a better idea? maybe I should be a part of their little conversation instead?

But I'll only go back on this condition: even though you are imaginary, you have to follow me. I've grown to like your presence. It's hilarious.

(sneakingly heads back to where Essence and Laura is, checks his inventory to see if he has a weapon and what other items he may have)

...ugh. You know that is a difficult decision for me to make.

hmph, well helping Essence means I will have to stay here and do nothing like she suggested me to do, and as you have implied, leaving and doing nothing as Essence asked me to will only leave me in a state of confusion and unanswered questions as you put it.

I guess that leaves me with... helping Laura? jeez she is annoying. She is like, everything opposite of what I am! with her wishes to not harm anyone or get stronger through consuming while I do that stuff instead in order to survive this universe so nobody can hurt me anymore.

In a way, one of us is Yin, and one of us is Yang. It doesn't fit comfortably with me helping her, but it doesn't look like I have much of a choice now does it?

Now comes how I will get the job done. I can't harm Essence because of the contract, so directly attacking her is out of the question.

I'll have to cause trouble indirectly. So that leaves me with 3 options:

either I act as Laura's shield blocking all damages Essence and the purple flame will cause if Laura tampers with the machine, which will hurt and lead to death most likely as I am also getting hurt by the two voices

or I sit and talk as a third party in their little conversation

or I find Ember and challenge her to a duel.

...Now that I think about it... YEAH! I think I would like to fight Ember. Laura is dealing with Essence and the machine, the voices are fighting the spirits, and that leaves Ember not doing anything at the moment.

Besides, Ember looks like a fangirl of the ash tree using some of his powers, and even trying to look like him wearing his style. The ash tree's spirit is the one adversary I hate out of everyone, and it is an insult to me that someone part of the Ash Tree is controlling me. So it seems fitting I should be the one to face her in battle.

Now my plan: first, go to Ember, second, pretend to be her ally and ask her some questions and information and how she is working my body. Eventually when I gain more of her trust and lets her guard down is when I backstab her. I'll do all this while Essence is distracted. I'm excited just thinking about that.

It is time I take back my little realm from Ember. Wish me luck, imaginary Mr Crumpet!

No. 910317 ID: 3583d1

Because while she may be too kind and innocent for her own good, she’s not like you. Someone who is so morally bankrupt they are fine with harming others but won’t acknowledge they’re the Harley Quinn in some Phantom of the Opera Douchebag’s plans. So mostly I just hate you because you’re a a terrible horrible no good very bad person.

On top of that you’re just lazy and a walking cliche of a Saturday morning cartoon villain and creepypasta. I mean gods of light and darkness you’ve actually stopped to using machines to do work for you. Even in this giant plane of void you’ve got machines to do your own dirty work. I get that we’ve got a kind of video game motif going here but suddenly you’re taking inspiration from Dr. Willy now? Is there anything original about you?

Uh-huh. Again with the waking cliches, just admit your a walking creepypasta once for me huh? How about that. And as for ME assigning you the role of villain, I never said that I did that. You were villain from day one, you pretty much just showed up and asserted yourself as “the bad guy.” Hell you didn’t even give so much as a hello just cut to black and suddenly EVIL! I much more preferred you without a tongue, at least then there was something original about you. Where did you get a tongue anyway? I recall you stealing one from Robbit Rabbot, is it his? Did Silly the wacky sad ghost or whoever not like the blow jobs you were giving? Couldn’t work the shaft?

Anyway, is that my knife I didn’t know you could summon it, I thought only Scarred could do that. I feel like she should get tested after sleeping with you, maybe wipe down the knife with some some disinfect wipes, makes me wonder who else can summon it.
No. 910626 ID: ae9b99

hmmm... well Ember, that is a funny coincidence. It is so funny that I forgot to laugh, because I was going to say those exact same things to you, mainly what are you doing in here? And the fact that I do not want to deal with you right now either.

But because somebody has not been following Essence's orders like she was supposed to be doing, Essence was forced to come over to my location and take my place to "negotiate" with Laura instead, all just to direct me over here to make sure somebody is following directions correctly this time instead... I'm referring to you, Ember.

You know, Essence was pretty furious when you decided to hide in here when you were supposed to be doing your job outside of me.

And besides that, you even gained a really lucky break when you were given a second chance to redeem yourself in Essence's eyes when one of the voices absentmindedly decided to come in here for you to hold hostage, torture, and stall for time. Essence sent me here to make sure you punish that voice to the fullest.

But before I even had a minute to get in here, you've already failed and let her escape. Now they are most likely regrouping and started to figure out what is going on after so many turns of them experimenting.

So now we are back to square one with the higher possibility of the voices figuring out how to take us all down, and the higher possibility of Essence becoming twice as angry at you once she finds out about you failing her a second time after letting the voice escape.

But I'm not an unreasonable little void monster, I know just how you can save face and regain Essence's respect again and avoid her punishment. My recommendation right now is to get yourself back outside and continue what you were supposed to be doing as per Essence's previous orders.

Essence told you she does not care what state you are in right now, you need to get out there right now, or you will have to face Essence's wrath, and you can only hope that your punishment won't be a fate worse than death.

You can call Essence about this, but I should warn you she is concentrating on her negotiation with Laura, and distracting her again will most likely piss her off further.

Besides, we are ever so close to victory. We need you to be a team player and push on to get the job done.

Well I'm only following orders from Essence to make sure you get out there and get this thing working again. I don't make the orders, I just follow them. Don't shoot the messenger.
So, you saying "screw you" to me also means you are saying "screw you" to Essence... umm... you do have faith in Essence... and you aren't planning on betraying her... right?

...no, of course you trust her. Otherwise, you would of ran far away from the battlefield. Instead you chose to hide back in here praying for an opportunity to show up.
That shows you still have faith in Essence, but I can't help but feel that... maybe your faith in Essence is beginning to dwindle at least based off of your inaction.

And what if that opportunity you're waiting for never shows up? You kind of remind me of Demoria waiting for an opportunity that never arrives.

...let me tell you a secret... *shows note Essence wrote regarding his memory loss from destroyed spirit cores* not to bring me down to your level and patronize you, but I'd be lying if I told you I'm not worried too. I've already lost a lot of fond memories from forgetting names and important people to forgetting my own childhood. I worry that it will get to the point where I'll forget everything, equal to a form of death

And yet, the difference between you and I in our predicaments is that I choose not to cower and do nothing, or confront Essence. I am still following her orders despite knowing the possibility I'll soon lose more of who I was, and the fear I may fail in convincing you to not sit around, or even the fear you may even hurt me. I still have full trust in Essence that she will make everything better for us when we succeed.

And if you are worried about our enemies waiting for something, I can assure you that they are ten times more worried than you are. Despite failing to keep that voice in here, you did cause a lot of major damage to them, and are most likely far too scared to even think at the moment which is why they are at a standstill right now. As they say, you have to strike when the iron is hot. Otherwise they may come to their senses and figure things out

So I guess it comes to this: are you going to have complete faith in Essence and get out there to make this thing function again? or are you going to throw your faith in Essence out the window and rebel or confront against Essence? Whatever you choose, I won't stop you. It all comes down to how much you trust Essence and her orders for you to get back outside despite your fears.

But... staying here and doing nothing will most likely lead to a lot more unnecessary damages than intended to you and I if those voices start figuring things out soon and do something worse than you'd think if you continue to stay here, and a severe punishment for you and I by Essence's wrath. That said, I can't let you just sit here for much longer.
No. 910836 ID: ae9b99

Okay, so here is my theory: I believe this thing is gaining power from either pain, or anger, or perhaps both. It seems like every time this thing is attacked, it only grows stronger which is why Ember was attacking it most likely whenever we avoid attacking it. I base this theory also to the fact that one of the spirits is "The Rage Within" which is some kind of god-like soul that is fueled by anger alone.

I'm thinking what we have to do is take a turn not attacking it so it may cool down from its anger, making the monster weaker and smaller before we can attack it again so we don't get hurt majorly ourselves.

So for this turn, we are going to test this theory to see if it will grow smaller, or perhaps not attack us by not attacking it ourselves for this turn, or not let anyone else damage it.

But to stay progressive in this battle, I suggest we use this turn to change our target, mainly the robot throne Essence was sitting in. If we can destroy that before Essence comes back, she will become vulnerable to our attacks again, a nasty surprise.

Which is why I must ask this, Dervan: you have most likely seen this throne before as you are an employee of the Dimensional Tribunal if I'm not wrong. It is the same robot that the Dimensional Tribunal's people use to defeat stronger targets like Spirit Parasites. I want to know if that robotic suit is safe to attack in its throne form when no one is sitting in it, and if it is not safe, if there are any ways to deactivate it.

based off of Dervan's answer, I think our plan will be that I will go first healing us with the Lovers kisses card combination, powered up using the fools card to turn as many cards as I can upsidedown, and one of our close to death tokens. Hopefully that will fully restore our hp.

After I heal us all up, depending on Dervan's answer if the throne is safe to attack or not with no one sitting in it, Scarred will attack the throne. I recommend using a long-ranged attack rather then a short-ranged attack. That way you will be at a safe distance if the throne counterattacks you.

as for Dervan's turn, I'll need you at standby to make sure no one tries to attack this creature.

Also, Scarred, please tell Dervan and I what exactly you saw inside that creature.

Y...you want my... heart... why e...ember

... *blushes*

I didn't know you loved me. And here I thought you were a cruel person.
But sorry, falling in love in this universe is bound to lead to misery. This universe is known for giving people happiness only to crush it in the most cruel way possible so i can't accept your love.

All joking aside, Essence blocked communication with you most likely because she is furious with you to even talk to you and can not be distracted. It is best to follow orders before you upset her more

As for me giving my heart, it is not my heart being destroyed by those voices that I am worried about, as I trust Essence wouldn't put us in any harm. I'd gladly give you my heart to get you to finish the job as if Essence thinks it is safe for you to go out there, it is safe for my heart as well.

My only worry is that you have disobeyed Essence's orders not once, but twice after you kicked that voice out, and are still disobeying orders staying here, almost like you are working against Essence as a traitor.

So how can I trust you won't just destroy my heart once you have it?

But... I was told to get you outside any way I can by Essence, so if that is the only way, I'll just have to give you my heart.

But you have to be the one to dissect my chest and rip my heart out of my chest. I can't operate on myself, you know. Besides I'm sure you want to put the pain on me anyway.

Use your pink slimey claws to tear my chest open and take my heart.*keeps hands up in the air where ember can see them* I won't stop you.

Her name is Spirit contaminator. She has an ability to become intangible so that attacks won't hurt her, and she has the ability to take control of people and read there thoughts when the person is infected with some kind of blue substance. I had to get rid of that infection a couple times. Also she is weak against fire.

It is important to note that she see's Essence as her sister and Happy as her father. So even if she is not enthusiastic to fight, she would do so anyway as she would do anything for Essence, even jump off a cliff.

So this is what makes negotiation with her difficult, we cannot threaten her as she can become intangible and that throne may hurt us, and convincing Essence is bad news is especially tough because she see's her as her sister. Maybe perhaps if we offer her something

Whatever the case allow me to help you with negotiations
No. 910885 ID: 35da22

*is concerned about something* But first, I must ask a very important question and depending on your answer I may have to ask you another quick question before negotiations starts: did you know anything about Garm aka the Rage Within before you came here to fight for us? Any info would be great against fighting this thing.

Hey Essence wanna have a bit of fun with this? Say what I say exactly as I say it, this will be too funny.

Unless it is to shake my hand
Say nothing more
Everything you do is annoying.

To be honest I’m Amazed your even alive.
How it must suck to be you.

*cough cough* *spits up blood from mouth*
Ember... No more talking please... you have your precious protection, so j...just get out there now.

As for me... I need to go lie down and sleep through the pain.

*staggers away from Ember's location and is heading back towards Laura and Essence's location*

Inner thoughts: ugh... that hurt so bad. I did not want my heart taken, but at least now she will get out there.

Inner thoughts: In hind sight, I could have left Ember after I learned that my heart is keeping this thing going and I could of acted as a shield for Laura that Essence wasn't allowed to hurt or this thing would be destroyed, but it would have looked suspicious to Ember, and Ember would not of been dealt with properly and could have been a big problem if kept unchecked.

Inner thoughts: But silver lining, I can still make this plan work. All I have to do is show Essence my wound that Ember inflicted on me, and frame Ember for treachery with Ember's intention to steal my heart and give the voices my heart. It should totally put Essence in a panic if she finds out the one piece keeping this thing going is about to be destroyed. Plus it would be believable because why would I want to get killed with my heart destroyed? Especially with this fatal wound that only Ember could have caused

and I hope it will work out...

Umm... Dervan. So you... you say that is all the info you all gathered about The Rage Within? That only that the Rage Within is a part of Absolution that gets separated from him after he dies, and then possesses a person giving them immense powers when angered (>>911021)?

because after I was giving my thoughts about this thing being powered by the rage within when attacked through
pain or anger... you've mentioned that this monster has been fused with a strange engine (>>910879)

However... in my theory... I never once mentioned a "strange engine" being fused with this monster... (>>910836)

inner thoughts: I'm kind of scared to ask this but here it goes

...ummm... Dervan... how could you have known that there is a strange engine fused with this monster without us telling you, or without you seeing this engine for it yourself or knowing about it beforehand if that was all the information your team got from Absolution?

*notices his chest injury is gone*

Inner thoughts:what...the...fuck. I'm healed? ALREADY??? how am I supposed to frame Ember if I don't have the chest wound and Ember's scratch marks to trick Essence of Ember's betrayal as fake proof?

inner thoughts: wait... I can be healed instantly? If I can be healed quickly, and Ember has my heart which is the only thing keeping me alive, does that mean... no one in this room can kill me right now? granted, I can still feel pain which is bad, but if I can heal pretty quick, I guess that means I can't die as long as my heart is not here. which means I guess I am the perfect shield for Laura. I just have to hope those voices don't attack Ember and I have to be quick about this. For now, I just have to play the role of the foolish dumb minion to keep Essence fooled and not let anyone know where my heart is. Laura might have a plan of some sort with this scarf healing shtick

inner thoughts: ...crap, can Laura hear my thoughts right now? I really hope she cannot hear my thoughts, but if she can, that is rude Laura, very rude. Learn some manners. If you can hear my thoughts, and value your life, you will keep your mouth shut and keep a cowardly poker face. Or I will have no choice but to get you killed for my safety

*forcefully yanks scarf away from Laura* hee hee, you are a fool, Laura. what kind of insane person would want to heal the person trying to murder them? Well whatever, you are making our job easier. Thanks for the free victory.

Wow Essence, it is a good thing I came here just in time. If you'd of died, we would of lost, and if we lost, I would of gotten killed, and worst of all, if we lost, I would not get to take Felafaf and tvhead.

Essence, you keep on talking to "Dreamwalker" like he is having a conversation with you, or you keep complaining about his eating. But... I didn't hear him say anything nor do I hear him chewing on anything like you are saying, nor do I think he would be eating at all if he was here... are you talking to yourself Essence? you should probably stop talking to yourself Essence. Only insane people do that, Essence.

Actually, that insanity is most likely why you've become a cyclops, and spitting out blood, and have that chest wound and many injured teammates while in comparison Laura looks clean and healed like the day she was born. You are always so distracted by your insanity and hearing voices that aren't there that you are putting yourself and your teammates in danger.

You even tried to get Ember to go outside even though she was shot and marked by the moon card. You really don't have our best intentions in mind.

And to top it off, your insanity is even driving you to self destruction, begging Laura to kill you as I arrived. What the fuck are you even doing with that strategy? are you trying to lose on purpose and get all of us and more importantly, myself killed?

I'm sorry Essence, but your distractions from your insanity are a hazard to my health. I came to help so I can feel more complete by absorbing Felafaf and Tv Head, but *shows letter detailing the memory loss* I am losing a lot more to make the win not worth it and perhaps losing more than I will gain, making me feel even more empty with myself than when I arrived.

*is standing between Essence and Laura*

inner thoughts: ... *groan* as for you, you're not Mr. Crumpet or a figment of my subconscious, are you? No, you are just Dreamwalker's flaming headed neglectful babysitter trying to manipulate me into doing something. I can tell it's you because you hold great disgust towards Dreamwalker, and I just saw a bit of you as you are trying to project an image of Mr. Crumpet. Good job watching over Dreamwalker and keeping him out of trouble by the way. The Great Constructor must be sooooo proud of you and your efforts.

inner thoughts: You are just like Tom, Nadly, Betty, Jerry, Mike, the Ash Tree spirit, Demoria and Essence. Only pretending to be my friend looking out for my best interest when in reality you're just using me and will toss me under the bus when I've worn out my usefulness. The fact that you also pretended to be a part of me making me not even trust myself is especially cruel.

inner thoughts: But I can forgive that because at least you now finally get it. You see how terrible the multiverse truly is as I do now. You finally understand why I want to destroy all of it, or why I gave my heart to Ember so easily even though I know it will kill me. It is to finally be safe from everyone. To finally be isolated and at peace either with myself dead, or with everyone else dead in an empty multiverse with only I left standing.

inner thoughts: I can almost see the final destination of my life in my head. If I am most likely going to die here after those horrific voices destroy my heart, I'm going to at least have some fun annoying certain people as I protect Laura before I go out with a bang. Besides, helping the person you despise, Dreamwalker, would be a good way to get revenge at you for manipulating me.

inner thoughts: But I'll admit, after you've finally seen this multiverse the way I do, perhaps in another life, maybe you could have been my best friend, or my only true friend. Actually, since you've given up all hope, would you like to be my friend right now and enjoy ourselves as I celebrate my death day while I struggle to protect Laura?
No. 911586 ID: ae9b99

Scarred, I really can't think of anything else no matter how hard I try. Sorry.

Use your Valkyries Doom on Ember. It should be able to finish her off especially after that gunshot wound. and even if it doesn't, it has a chance to paralyze her so hopefully it will paralyze her so she won't be able to attack the spirit, and she will not be able to move and hide again.
It should also mark her for death and weaken her attacks and defenses dramatically to finish her off on the next turn.

Stop. Telling. Me. What. To. DO!

jeez, you guys are gonna give me a stroke. Fuck. *takes deep breaths to calm self*

First of of, Essence. No. Just, no. Stop it Essence. I'm done. I'm not pinning Laura to the ground. After hearing that Ember has quite possibly faced her demise after putting her full trust in you, that was the final straw. You are far too distracted, and not in a good mindset to make reasonable effective strategies due to those emotions you cannot control,
Not to mention, after I've seen Felafaf and TV head injured badly quite possibly by your leadership, and after seeing you in a bloody mess WHILE I REMIND YOU THAT YOU WERE BEGGING LAURA TO KILL YOU AS WELL WHICH WOULD LEAD ME TO LOSE while meanwhile our enemies are in perfect shape without losing members in their team, I can see that my safety with you is at far too much of a risk at this point. I'm done listening to you.
In fact, if you are losing control of this monster as you said, I at this point want to see just how chaotic this can get. Hee hee hee hee...

inner thoughts: As for you, Batman with the flaming hair, fuck you too for messing with my mind like that. You made me believe I have finally had someone to befriend, even if only imaginary, all just so you could manipulate and lie to me like everyone else has to fulfill your selfish wishes to kill Dreamwalker and yourself. That is truly a dick move. I can see you don't have my best intentions in mind or want to even see me succeed in any kind of goals in surpassing Absolution Prime.
Think about this, Adam West: What do you suppose would of happened if I did kill Dreamwalker? I would be left under the suffering of Essence instead, only forced to fulfill her goals, not mine. You don't care about my well-being, or my goals, you are only telling me what I want to hear so I can do your dirty work and take the fall for it.
Besides if you see yourself as a failure in giving advice, than how can I expect to take your advice seriously as well. Really, I could of probably helped you if you didn't mess with my mind and pretend to be Mr. Crumpet, but you blew it by being unfaithful to me.
Just for that, you said earlier that "we all will die by trying to accomplish some unattainable goals that we set up for ourselves" well guess what: your punishment is an oxymoron. Since your goal is that you want to die with Dreamwalker, I'm going to make your goal for death an unattainable goal for you to have as you suffer in Dreamwalker's and your humiliation and failure without hope for death in this living nightmare. hows that for vengeful actions, batman? At least maybe you will spend this time to try harder with Dreamwalker this time instead of giving up, you quitter.

inner thoughts: And Dreamwalker, do not think you are off the hook just because I am ranting about the two people you aren't too fond of. You are no better than they are. Even though I didn't respond to you, I have heard everything you have been saying and doing when I got here, and unlike Laura, and that idiot Batman wannabe, I knew exactly what you were trying to do through Essence... you were fucking trying to give Laura a hint to consume the rest of my memories against my wishes with your poetry and pretzel eating, leaving me with nothing left after I have lost control of my body, my appearance, parts of my mind, and my heart. You are just another shining example of someone trying to use me and throw me under the bus.
What is worse is that you have chosen to be an extremely picky eater never consuming ANYONE'S MEMORIES your whole entire life in godhood, and yet you choose me, the one person in your life you try to order Laura to take memories from AGAINST MY WILL, and WITHOUT a second thought, and just about immediately as soon as I show up.
It is pretty telling that if even a goodie pacifist like you Dreamwalker wants me to suffer, then that proves I officially am alone against the entire multiverse.
so while I am choosing not to kill you Dreamwalker, as I think it will be a fitting punishment for what Batman did to me, I'm going to give Laura an offer which you probably won't like. I hope you get pink eye after the weird stuff you've been putting in your eye. But I bet you are going to take all of what I said in stride like the unfeeling god you are. Sicko.

No. 911709 ID: ae9b99

*activates void speak with Laura so Essence, Dreamwalker and Dreamwalker's aid won't hear.*

Laura. You and I are in the exact same circumstances, with both sides demanding us to do things, both sides manipulating us when we don't do things they want, and even everyone here is abusing or killing us in different ways whether it be intentional like those voices against me, or Essence against you, or unintentional through poorly uncoordinated plans with disregard for our safety from the people we are following. And I don't know about you, but I'm sick of following orders from people who only wants to use us, and tired of people trying to hurt us.

Don't get me wrong, I hate you. But know that it is a different kind of hate than what I have against all the others. I'm sure you've noticed that even though our circumstances of gaining these weird abilities from gods or demigods are similar, everything you are, and everything I am are complete opposites, like Yin and Yang. Such as your pacifism attitude and fear to hurt others even though they are harming you, to my want in absorbing others to get stronger so nobody can harm me ever again.

And really, I hated how everything you are is everything I am not. I wanted to be your rival because of that and be rid of you.

but after thinking through it, I come to see why exactly I hated being your opposite, it was because I see you as a personification of everything that I am missing to feel whole. I wanted to get rid of you, but in reality, it was jealousy of wanting the pieces of you that I am missing.

And I have this feeling you see me as someone who has all the missing pieces you don't have as well that you want.

So let me ask you again the 6th question I tried to ask you when you first entered here which you refused to answer:
No matter how many friends you have, no matter how much love you give and receive, no matter how much entertainment you partake in, no matter how much power you have do you’ve gained, do you still feel there is an empty part inside your heart that you just cannot fill no matter what?
...Because I do. And I'm trying everything I can to fill it, and I don't think any amount of people or souls I absorb in the void will fill that emptiness.

and I know that you feel that emptiness too. Even though you've gained Dreamwalker's ability to see, you still feel empty, so you do weird dream magic in others' dreams, protect Ana's mind, and even enter Essence's dream to fill the emptiness when really you could have just enjoyed life with you new eyesight not bothering anyone.
You are lying to yourself when you say you only wanted the ability to see again. You are really just looking to feel whole again... like I am.

and if you feel empty like I do, and if you feel I am the missing pieces of you need like I feel you are the missing pieces I need, then how about it? why don't we disband from our respective teams and form a pact of our own right here, right now, and become whole at last as equals and finish this battle?

I assure you that I will not kill you. I'll make sure you are kept alive. Besides, after my heart exploded, you are the only person here with a heart to share. There is no point in killing you, Laura.

Want to be teammates *holds hand up to Laura waiting for her answer*

No. 911717 ID: ae9b99

Well, I guess we wait until it is our turn again... unless this monster does nothing after not getting attacked. In which case, I have an idea. Since Ember is laying there unconscious, maybe one of us should quickly grab Ember, put a weapon against her, and tell Spirit contaminator that she must leave the battlefield, or have her ally killed.

If Spirit Contaminator see's her allies as family, then she should have no choice but to comply and leave. Afterwards, we will move Ember out of the battlefield, destroy the throne, and finish off this monster...

Not to mention right now we are burning because of that status effect we got hit with. I can only hope I can get rid of it in the next turn. No promises, I've used up my Temperance card after all and it is at cooldown.

*gives a very sad sigh and throws the pretzels away*

You're right, Marty. I'm not gonna stand here and act defensive and say that I'm not picky with who I choose to consume. You're right. So yeah I will take it in stride, but I accept your words as truth. I don't have a reason to want to eat you, in fact, I don't want to. I'm glad I don't have to make that choice anymore, Marty. I'm glad you found your voice, just like that little boy who was always off playing ghost busters and trying to find paranormal lore. Just makes me sad to see you now. If there was anything that could be done, I'd be willing to listen and help. I'm sure Laura would too, bless her heart. Just, know that I'm not going to make you do anything you don't want to do.

*Suddenly turns to "batman"*
Caio, that's enough. More than any one here, you are what I regret most. You didn't fail at all my boy, I failed you. More than anything else I know that I failed you worst of all.

I still remember when mankind was young I gave them the power to dream of something greater, cities and civilizations. What I didn't see happening was the great conflicts that would arise because of it. There are so many wars ideas that could have been prevented, I loved humanity too much to stop them. And in the great city of Mycenae, I found you Caio. A cold hungry boy, alone, and scared on the docks. An orphan. And I thought if I could just help one person, then maybe I'm not a failure. So I talked to you, got to know you, was bound to you. You were my first Seer. Together we were a team, I thought we could change the world, I've never stopped trying. But maybe you're right, maybe I'm not good enough no matter how hard I try, I can't fix everything. I loved Humanity too much. And I loved you, Caio. You were, and are a son to me. I failed to see how my father was remaking you, was telling you things about myself that I didn't tell you. You're not a failure, Caio, I failed you.

Can you forgive me, Caio. My son?

You know, I remember something Scarred. That one ghost with the question mark who asks for riddles in exchange for answering questions for people told us this: Never leave anything to chance, if you are going to make a decision stay behind it. relying on luck won't accomplish anything.

having my card burned might actually be a blessing in disguise. I've been using luck to try to get us healed and powered up. But it is not a reliable way to go through this battle. If I am going to help at all, I'm going to have to rely on my wits and strength, not on my luck.

That said, here is what I am thinking. Laura is top priority to keep alive. If she dies, it is game over. So I am going to use my Tarot Pentacle move to form a barrier around Laura so that nothing hurts her from this Null abomination. Meanwhile, Scarred. I want you to use your Shake it off move to get rid of Laura's burning status ailment. Got it?

Null #5 (the one blocking Essence's way): Happy? did you say Happy? *gasps* OH GOSH! OH CRAP! ... who the hell is happy? Demoria never mentioned anyone named Happy to me before. And even if she did, ummm, I'm losing my fucking memories from this battle so... it is hard to take your spooky threats seriously if I don't know who Happy is and why I should fear him, especially with a name like that.

Null #2: (one of the Nulls trying to pull a spirit's hands away from Laura): *whispering to Laura* Laura, are you seriously giving up in trying to escape these spirits? Already??? Look, your enthusiasm to join me and make us feel whole again makes me delighted, but your wish to give up trying to free yourself already and form a pact with me right away with the blind hope that it will help save you is... pissing me off. Before I can have you join me, I need to be sure you are worthy and ready for it. You and I have to EARN that privilege in forming this pact. I cannot accept cowardly quitters to be a part of me, otherwise you'd be putting me... or rather us in too much danger. I'll only form a pact with you sometime AFTER you get freed from these spirits.
Hell, I bet you didn't even TRY to help at all in pulling yourself free from these spirits when I am trying to pull them away from you. You just stayed down hoping you'd be rescued or keep hoping for some kind of miracle. Your problem is that you keep relying on a gamble as you rush into things or blindly follow people's orders without regards to your safety. You keep trying to take the easy way out of danger when it arrives, but you never see the possible consequences. Stop rushing into things, and stop taking the easy way out Laura. That is how you got stuck in here in the first place after you tried using your mind powers to negotiate with me. That is how you got your friends in danger when you desperately called them for help summoning them. That is how you got in this battle in the first place.
Life doesn't throw you bones. You've got to work your hardest to earn those bones yourself.
Also use your brain, what do you think would happen if we formed a pact right here and right now? all that would happen is that you will still be pinned down, but this time with me being pinned down with you.
Has anyone ever read you the story of the little engine that could? use that for inspiration. Just keep thinking in your mind over and over again "I think I can"
Now lets try again. I'll try pull the Spirits' arms away from you, and you pull yourself away from the arms. Try with all your might this time and don't give up for fuck's sake.
And don't you dare use your frustrations to fucking cry about your misfortune and give up again. Only babies do that. Take those frustrations to fuel your determination to free yourself from these gross hands instead.
oh, and once you free yourself, I want you to immediately stand on the table. these spirits are coming from the floors, and walls. So it is best for you to stay away from those by standing on the table.
*continues trying to pull the arms away from Laura*

Null #4 (the one who is also pulling the spirits' arms away from Laura): inner thoughts: listen Dreamwalker. I'm still very pissed off at you for trying to kill me, and for neglecting Laura. I don't think I can ever forgive you for that especially since you are taking my insults in stride right now, feeling sorry for yourself, and asking for forgiveness. You have to work to earn your forgiveness, not just with your words.
But just this once I will relay any messages you might want to say to Laura to motivate her. Oh, and be fucking careful of what you say. Essence can hear you in case you forgot. try to make it so that Essence still thinks I am going to form a pact with Laura as soon as I can. Make it quick.

The real Null: *is keeping an eye on the corpse engine and the boiling hate*
inner thoughts: excellent. the flames seem to be dying down, but I do not think it is small and weak enough to attack it just yet. I'll wait a little longer and see if it gets smaller until I feel it is small and weak enough to attack. Those idiot voices just have to not attack my body to make it grow again, and I have to make sure my clones keep Essence distracted as they try to free and protect Laura. I'll also need to balance the time between the flame getting smaller, and Laura outside sinking before I decide when I'm ready to attack the engine.
Also can't forget Essence might find me out if I attack the engine. I'll have to be careful and decide whether I want to go through with this or not.

heh heh heh... Really? do you truly mean what you say with your arms stretched out like some sort of holier than thou messiah giving a lecture to the masses?
then let me get this straight: living a lifestyle of ignoring the world's rules and ignoring decency for freedom makes one a mutilated bloodied cyclopes as they lie to themself trying to smile away the physical and mental pain to desperately convince they're living the good life. Yeah, sure. that sounds about right. do you not see the irony of what you are saying here?

You have a terrible unskilled poker face. no one is genuine with what they say with a forced smile like you were pulling as you say those words. It makes it so very obvious that you are lying to us... and especially lying to yourself when you say you are a testament of what true freedom is. Let me lay down the truth that you are too terrified to admit: you are not free. At all.

In fact, your mutilated body looks more like one of a trapped tortured woman with some sort of Stockholm syndrome with her kidnapper(s) and has given up on escaping it. Your obsession with Happy seems more like the symptoms of someone who has been easily manipulated. He may see you as his favorite giving you free reign to do whatever you want, but it is a classic manipulation tactic to give the person they are controlling false sense of freedom, happiness, and rewards so that when the manipulator (Happy) asks the person they're manipulating (you) to do something unreasonable, like say... jump into a volcano, they'd do it without any question.

Happy's favoritism towards you is not genuine. his favoritism of you is more akin to enjoying their favorite character in a video game to control. Sure he'll get upset if you perish, but it is not genuine sadness. It is more of an annoyance sadness of having a favorite character get a game over or killed off in a story.

And even if you weren't manipulated by Happy, you are still trapped by that asshole, the Ash Tree. sure you've gained unlimited powers from that tree, but you are cursed to be tethered to that tree like an abandoned dog leashed up to a tree, forced to relive the nightmares of this reality over and over again. If I die, I'll die laughing knowing that fact

My advice to you Essence: if you win this battle, and you truly want to be free, find a way to ditch Happy, and only trust yourself and no one else. You don't need him. You don't need anyone, Essence.


Boiling Hate, you've been eavesdropping and listening silently on our conversation. I do not know if you are sentient with mentality or not, but I'll leave you with this thought: After you've heard that Ember put all her faith in Essence and went outside as per her orders along with taking my heart as I had absolute faith in Essence to allow Ember to take it, only for her to meet with an unfortunate end including getting my heart destroyed, And after you've witnessed me losing more of my memories and lose control of my body, lose my heart, and lose my form due to following Essence's orders, do you think it is wise for you to continue following her knowing those facts? Looking closely at you now, Boiling Hate, you do seem to be losing more and more of yourself, getting smaller as well as you continue to stay and follow Essence just like Ember and I was when we were following Essence, so you must have some sort of opinion as well, Boiling Hate... I'll leave you with that thought.


in any case, I'm done talking. My decision is final: I choose Laura to be in my team.

Well, Spirit Contaminator. You heard Dervan. Ask us about it.

inner thoughts: in any case, we've all used our turns, it is the enemies' turn.

*scarred Ana uses taunt*

You once told me you didn’t want to fight anyone who couldn’t give you a worthy challenge. So what are you doing hitting her for? I’m right here! If you’ve got something to say let’s hear it!
No. 912988 ID: c683fb

You sure you want to do that?

If you do I won’t tell you what Scarred actually thinks of you. I will give you this one for free, she does love you Essence. Despite everything that you’ve both done to each other, she does care.

Or even better, you look like you are having one hell of a migraine there. Do you want me to tell you the truth? To be honest, looking into your mind is like looking at s mixed number of jigsaw puzzles and trying to put them all together. In fact...


Alright, that explains quite a bit actually. You know Essence you remind me of the joker in more ways that one now. You read comics at all? Alright so here’s the thing, in an issue of the justice league batman sits down in this all knowing seat called the “The mobius char.” This chair can answer any question that it’s posed. What bathan asks it is “what is the name of the joker?”

Do you know what the chair said?

“There are three.”

Do you see what I’m saying, Essence? Do you know why your brain can’t get a whole image and why one song keeps playing over and over again?

inner thoughts: hmph, screwed over by both sides of this battle by being a part of this. Well, if I am forced to die here by the hands of both Dreamwalker and the voices and/or Essence, then I'm gonna take both sides down with me one way or another by screwing them over as they are trying to do with me.

inner thoughts: Dreamwalker it is time for your punishment for trying to get Laura to consume my mind and for those voices trying to kill me. I won't kill you or Laura as that will piss the fuck out of Essence and your Batman fellow and I want to screw them over for trying to fuck with me, but I'm going to do something just as bad to you.

inner thoughts: I'm going to corrupt Laura's mind by awakening the more darker side of her her that you have so hard tried to keep her from trailing into. I will make her lose the innocence and purity you've desperately have been trying to keep intact within Laura that had made her so unnatural. It'll probably screw me even worse, but at least if I am going down, I am taking every single one of you with me.

*grabs Laura's hand* In closing... fuck every single one of you.

When did I ever say I was a pacifist? Sometimes the only lesson is ones that’s taught with a belt. To be honest Essence it’s getting harder and harder to keep track of it all, there’s interesting stuff happening outside.

See, it’s not hard to mentally torture someone when you know more than they do. For example here’s my final ultimatum, you can try to kill Laura and that will be be the end of you and your little sister outside, because it looks as though something big is about to happen, or you can stop this dumb cheating charade and go help the ones you care about.

I imagine that’s fractured mind of yours feels like it’s about to split down the middle with this. Just my opinion though.

rolled 4, 4, 1 = 9

suggestor's note: since card 2 is burnt, here is how the cards will be:
1=1, 2=3, 3=4, 4=5, 5=6

Alright, I'll tell you Spirit Contaminator.
Of course Scarred and I are still here to save Laura, It was our only goal at the start and that hasn't changed.
But sadly... being the only reason why we are here is a lie that I desperately want to believe. I know that protecting Laura will mean that if victory is ours, Essence and/or some of your family will just keep confronting us for revenge. That said, If self defense means having to take Essence and her army down so they can finally leave us alone so we can actually make some progress in our adventure without Essence's interrupting us to hurt or even kill us or our friends, then that would make what Dervan said correct about getting rid of our opposition now.
I wish it was true that it is only for Laura, but to prevent the inevitable of you guys seeking revenge against us just for defending our friend Laura, then we will have to eliminate Essence and your family now to prevent that outcome.

Keeping upsidedown 5, 1

Which brings me to you, Spirit Contaminator. Essence made me go through a very traumatic experience forcing us to go up against a spirit parasite queen. And even after I tried to reason with that queen to settle things nonviolently, and even let her escape when she gotten too weak from our attacks and ran away from us, that Queen would stop at nothing to hurt us in the most cruel ways possible from taking control of our friends in a most painful manner to her hosts with her children to even killing every single one of our friends at that time.
I even saw an instance of how cruel she was, eating sacrifices of humans that were given to her... which were STILL ALIVE.

*heals party*

It was then I've learned about your species and how you are one of the most dangerous species in the multiverse. Did you know you all made an entire universe go close to extinction because of your species' parasitic nature and desire to overpopulate and make other species suffer? Yeah... after seeing how cruel your species can be through the spirit parasite queen, I actually made a promise that I will eliminate any Spirit parasites I come across.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are friendly good Spirit Parasites out there. Maybe you aren't such a cruel monster like that queen was. But the fact is, if you, a (maybe) nice spirit parasite were to give birth to newer spirit parasites, whose to say that one, two, maybe even all of your children might be cruel, if not, even more cruel than the spirit parasite queen we fought against? And what if they initiate a scenario of another overpopulation and extinction of another universe? that is something I do not want to see again.

That said, Dervan wants to keep you alive, capture you, and have his crew research you. I on the other hand see that as a very dangerous idea and feel it is better off to eliminate your species. Far more dangerous than letting any other spirit parasites simply escape purposely.
It could get to a scenario where scientists using their experiments on spirit parasites could potentially create universal destroying weapons, or even mind control weapons eliminating free will of others. That, or if a spirit parasite were to escape the experiments, they could cause major harm to everyone in that universe.
Case and point, take whatever Essence did to make you part cyborg for instance. you have the power to control people through that weird blue liquid. Imagine the consequences if scientists were to create something even worse experimenting on your species. It'll be the nuclear bomb all over again, but 10x worst.

That said, it is Dervan's wish to research you. But it is my duty to destroy you instead. Otherwise, not eliminating you all and simply letting you go could cause betrayal to the people I promised to eliminate spirit parasites.
I'm sure what I said was unforgivable in your eyes, but at least now you know where I am coming from.

*wants to rant about how there's no point in having power if he can't even control his own body throughout this battle, and how he isn't joining Laura, but instead having Laura join him and needs her beating heart to stay alive, but is in too much pain to talk*

*is trying not to succumb to to his injuries after losing his heart, getting attacked by the voices and Dervan, his memories getting erased, Essence burning him, losing control of his body, and having all his bones broken*

*suddenly remembers that since his bones are gone, he can do things a person with a stable form with bones cannot*

*in a last ditch effort, he attempts to tear apart his own hand, and toss his decapitated hand towards Laura's hand*

*is shaking in pain, and feeling like he is going to pass out soon with his vision getting blurry now but still has hopes his decapitated hand has reached Laura's hand*

Ironic isn't it Essence? you wished to get rid of Laura, and you wished to get rid of me... I guess if you really think about it, in a sick and twisted way, your wish is finally granted, in the worst way possible for you... I hope it's everything you wanted........... Enjoy!
No. 913875 ID: e51896

inner thoughts: I really didn't want to say that. I'm not happy I said that. I must sound like a real villain... but I have to think long term here. If I were to let Spirit Contaminator survive willfully, it would most likely be seen as a treacherous action to the Dimensional Tribunal and his people. And I would rather much try getting them as our allies over having them as our adversaries... Especially after I made a promise to the incubus Melkior's bearded friend to eliminate all spirit parasites no matter their personality...

...but it doesn't mean that I do not feel rotten about it...
