CAG: Okay, gr8! Everything's all set for tomorrow!
CGC: Y34H, 1 GU3SS
CAG: Hey, I know you said to stop thanking you, 8ut really, I appreci8 this a lot.
CAG: I really miss all the cool stuff we used to do together, and I'm really happy for an opportunity to relive some of it, even if it's just for this one night.
CAG: And 8efore you ask, I don't think this is going to m8ke things "even" 8etween us or whatever.
CAG: I'm not stupid enough to think one night of FLARPing is going to magically resolve all the 8ad 8lood 8etween us.
CAG: God, I can't 8elieve what a 8itch I used to 8e, thinking friendship was all just 8asic arithmetic, and I could just do X amount of good or X amount of 8ad and everything would 8e fine and dandy.
CAG: Like, "Hey, sorry I killed you, let me get you a ro8ot and then we'll 8e even and we can 8e friends again!!!!!!!!"
CAG: Or like, "Hey, you just 8lew my arm and my eye off, so I just 8linded you, and now we're even and we can 8e friends again!!!!!!!!"
CAG: Sorry if I sound like Karkat right now, 8ut I really fucking h8 past me sometimes.

CGC: VR1SK4
CGC: YOUR3 M4K1NG 1T R34LLY H4RD FOR M3 TO H4T3 YOU R1GHT NOW >8[
CAG: Yeah, that's kind of the idea.
CAG: This whole "8eing nice" thing has 8een working really well with me and Tavros, so I figured I'd try it on every8ody else.
CAG: 8ut I kind of lucked out with him, and I realize it won't 8e nearly as easy to patch things up with you.
CAG: Or Aradia, for that matter.
CAG: 8luh, that'll pro8a8ly 8e impossi8le, come to think of it.
CGC: 1T M1GHT NOT B3 4S H4RD 4S YOU TH1NK

CAG: W8, this whole thing was supposed to 8e couched in little roleplaying 8its, 8ut I guess we just sort of dropped that.
CAG: Well shit.
CAG: I'm pretty much o8lig8ed to write some sort of outro here, 8ut I'm not even in the mood for roleplaying anymore.
CAG: So........ fuck it.
CAG: *Suddenly the entire tavern 8ursts into flames, and Mindfang and Redglare 8arely escape with their lives!*
CAG: *Also it turns out all the other people in the tavern were ghosts or something, and we were all just totally getting the shit haunted out of us in a 8ig undead prank*

GA: But Why Me Specifically
CA: wwell i figured you wwere pinin for her for a wwhile
CA: an i alwways kinda rooted for you twwo becomin matesprits
CA: i mean i alwways kinda considered you my friend evven if you didnt necessarily feel the same wway
GA: Of Course I Consider You A Friend
CA: really
CA: cause i still kinda feel like shit for the wway wwe talked
CA: like i pretty much just dumped all my fuckin baggage wwith fef an vvris on you an nevver really gavve much consideration to any a your problems at all
GA: Thats Not Entirely True
CA: it isnt
GA: No
GA: You Actually Did Give Me Good Advice Sometimes
GA: And Really It Probably Would Have Been To My Benefit To Follow More Of It Than I Did
CA: wwoww seariously
CA: like wwhat
GA: Well
GA: The Whole Thing With Vriska For One
GA: You Pretty Much Had Us Pegged From The Very Beginning
GA: And Maybe If Id Listened To You She And I Could Have Avoided This Whole Quadrant Flipping Clusterfuck In The First Place
GA: Truthfully I Always Regarded You As Something Of A Nuisance But In Retrospect That Was Probably A Mistake
GA: So Sorry About That
CA: nah kan its fine
CA: its just
CA: shit
GA: What
CA: wwell sorry if this is embarrassin
CA: but before i wwas honestly considerin you for my pale quadrant
CA: but i didnt go through wwith it cause i figured youd nevver evven consider that kinda relationship wwith me
CA: thought there wwas some bad blood betwween us yknoww
GA: Oh
GA: Really
GA: You Would Have Wanted To Be My Moirail
CA: wwell yeah kan
CA: sorry if this comes off as indecent or anythin but i think youd be an amazin fuckin moirail
CA: i actually kinda thought youd be out a my fuckin league entirely
GA: You Cant Possibly Mean That
CA: im absolutely fuckin searious here
CA: cross my collapsin and expandin bladder based aquatic vvascular system an hope to die
GA: Really
GA: Even After The Whole Thing With Me And Vriska
CA: oh come on kan
CA: i GET the thing betwween you an vvris ok
CA: ivve been there
GA: Yes I Suppose
GA: Honestly Whenever I Considered Other Candidates For My Pale Quadrant You Were My First Thought For Precisely That Reason
CA: wwoww really
GA: Yeah
GA: But Now I Dont Have Any Idea Where To Start Looking
GA: No Offense But You Were Kind Of My Last Resort
CA: haha none taken
CA: but seariously kan youd be a great moirail
CA: pretty much anybody wwould be happy to havve you in their pale quadrant
CA: wwell
CA: cept fef maybe
GA: What
CA: er
CA: shit nevvermind
GA: No Hold On
GA: Why Would Feferi In Particular Have A Problem With Me
CA: wwell
CA: back wwhen wwe wwere moirails she nevver really approvved of you an me talkin the wway wwe did
CA: thought you wwere lookin for a moirail on the side or somethin ridiculous like that
CA: alwways told me she thought you wwerent takin your responsibilities as a moirail seariously
GA: Wait
GA: Did She Actually Say That
GA: In Confidence
CA: wwell
CA: kind of but
GA: Can You Copy Exactly What She Said
CA: no look just forget i said anythin ok
CA: im not tryin to spread any malicious libel here
CA: i wwas just tryin to tell you wwhere not to look for a moirail
CA: god damnit i nevver should havve evven brought this up
GA: Well
GA: If You Insist
GA: Anyway Speaking Of Feferi Im Sorry Things Didnt Work Out Between The Two Of You
CA: nah its fine
CA: im pretty much ovver it
CA: the wwhole split betwween us wwas pretty much entirely my fault anywway
GA: I Dont Know
GA: Im Kind Of Tempted To Take Your Side On The Whole Affair
CA: wwhat
GA: I Mean She Used Your Moirallegiance To Coerce You Into Committing Mass Murder In Order To Feed Her Lusus
GA: And Then Literally As Soon As You Stopped Being Of Use To Her She Broke Off The Whole Thing
GA: Maybe Its Just A Coincidence But If It Was Then I Have To Say Her Timing Was Impeccable
GA: Im Not Really Sure Where She Gets Off Saying Im The One Whos Not Taking The Responsibilities Of Moirallegiance Seriously After She Has The Audacity To Pull Something Like That
CA: wwhoa kan sloww dowwn here ok
CA: i dont hate her or anything
CA: i mean the wwhole thing wwasnt wworkin out for both of us an i dont really blame her for wwantin to end it
CA: evven if the timin wwas a little suspect
CA: anywway things are a lot better wwith me an gam so really the wwhole thing wworked out for the best
GA: Yeah I Guess
GA: It Seems Like Youve Done Quite A Bit For Him Already
GA: Getting Him Off The Sopor And Hooking Him Up With Tavros
GA: Its Quite Impressive Actually
CA: yeah but i cant really take credit for any a that
CA: thats pretty much all tavvs doin
CA: all i did wwas take him off the slime an then nearly get fuckin clowwnmurdered
GA: Well Yes Some Initial Bumps Are To Be Expected
GA: But How Are Things Between You Now
CA: pretty good actually its kinda surprisin
CA: wwevve sorta agreed not to evven bring up the wwhole freakout
CA: cause wwhenevver it comes up all wwe evver do is take turns blamin ourselvves for it
CA: he thinks its his fault for flippin out in the first place
CA: an im like no you dumb fuck its not that simple
CA: anywway sides that wwe mostly just drink faygo an shoot the shit about our problems
GA: Faygo
CA: yes
GA: Seriously
CA: kan please dont start this ok
CA: its just soda
CA: like if anybody else had any other fuckin brand a soda id start drinkin it just so people wwould stop givvin me shit ovver it
CA: but faygos all i got so fuck it
GA: Well I Just
GA: I Never Took You For Such An Avid Soda Drinker
GA: I Always Thought You Would Prefer Some More Refined Beverage
GA: Like Tea For Instance
CA: please kan theres no more refined bevverage than soda
CA: its got like fifty fuckin grams a refined sugars per servvin
GA: Haha I Guess Thats One Way Of Looking At It
GA: Anyway Im Glad Things Are Going Well For You Two
CA: yeah thanks
CA: an i hope you find yourself a moirail evventually
CA: i mean if anybody deservves a good one its you
GA: Thank You Eridan
GA: But Honestly Im Not Even Sure How Much I Need One Right Now
GA: I Mean Things Are Good With Vriska
GA: And Its Not Like Ive Got Any Major Emotional Crises I Need Support With Right Now
GA: Heh
GA: Except Not Having A Moirail I Suppose
CA: haha yeah i guess
CA: wwell if you dont think its that high a priority maybe its for the best you just sit on it
CA: wwait for them to come to you
CA: wworst case scenario is itll come dowwn to you an fef
CA: but honestly shes alwways been pretty hung up on her pale quadrant so shes probably activvely lookin right noww
CA: youll probably end up dodgin that bullet entirely
GA: Hmm
GA: Maybe Youre Right
GA: Im Probably Overreacting To This Whole Situation Anyway
GA: Thanks Eridan
CA: yeah no problem
CA: wwait
CA: this doesnt count as pale infidelity or anythin like that does it
GA: Honestly
GA: Im Not Sure Pale Infidelity Is Even A Thing
CA: seariously
GA: Well No I Mean It Just Seems Like A Vast Oversimplification To Call It Pale Infidelity Whenever People Talk About Their Problems With Each Other
GA: Its Like Saying Its Black Infidelity Whenever You Call Someone An Idiot
GA: Or Calling It Ashen Infidelity Every Time You Tell Two People To Stop Calling Each Other Idiots
GA: I Mean I Probably Shouldnt Be Saying Pale Infidelity Isnt A Thing But It Seems A Little Knee Jerk To Just Throw The Term Around Whenever Two Friends Talk About Feelings
CA: um
CA: ok
GA: Sorry This Has Just Been Kind Of A Thing Recently
CA: fair enough i guess
GA: Okay We Kind Of Really Got Off Track Here And There Was Something Else I Needed To Tell You
GA: Vriska Asked Me To Make Costumes For Everyone Participating In Tonights Flarping Session
GA: So Please Alchemize This
GA: dEaAsPaO
CA: ok givve me a second
CA: oh
CA: oh wwoww
CA: kan this is
CA: this is fuckin amazing
GA: Im Glad You Find It Satisfactory
CA: satisfactory are you fuckin kiddin me
CA: kan this looks like somethin thatd be on display in a fuckin museum
CA: seariously i mean orphaner dualscar only exists in drawwins these days but id swwear this wwas taken from a fuckin photograph
CA: like
CA: this is pretty much the best thing evver
CA: thank you kan
GA: Well Youre Certainly Welcome
GA: But Vriska Is The One You Should Be Thanking
GA: She Wanted Everyones Costumes To Be Perfect Because She Really Wants This Whole Flarping Night To Be Special
GA: So If You Can Please Make Sure She Has A Good Time
CA: wwell a course kan
CA: anythin for a friend
GA: Thank You
GA: I Really Hate To Ask This Of You Again
GA: But Please Please Please Dont Hurt Her
CA: kan i understand your concern
CA: but vvris practically doesnt evven concern me at this point
CA: ivve got my crosshairs set on another target entirely
GA: What
GA: You Mean Terezi
GA: What Could You Possibly Want To Do To Her
CA: think about it kan
GA: Im Not Sure What There Is To Think About
GA: Unless
GA: Um
GA: Oh
GA: Oh My
GA: Eridan Are You
GA: Are You Saying That You Intend To Woo Miss Pyrope
CA: no im not sayin im gonna fuckin wwoo her
CA: wwoo is like the shittiest possible wword to describe wwhat im doin
CA: i intend to COURT her
CA: if youre gonna draww conclusions like this could you at least attempt to use a little more fuckin dignified vvocabulary
GA: My Apologies
GA: But
GA: Wow
GA: Thats Just
GA: Kind Of Unusual Is All
CA: is it really that bad
GA: No No Im Not Saying Its Bad At All
GA: I Mean Thinking About It I Think You Two Would Actually Make For A Pretty Cute Couple
CA: theres that wword again
CA: wwhy do people keep sayin its cute
CA: like wwhat about me or ter is in any fuckin wway cute
GA: I Dont Know
GA: I Mean By All Rights The Two Of You Combined Should Be Intimidating
GA: But Somehow The Amalgam Of Your Various Eccentricities Evokes Something More Along The Lines Of A Pair Of Comic Relief Villains From A Wigglers Evening Cartoon
CA: im
CA: im not really sure howw to take that
GA: If You Dont Mind My Asking
GA: Were You Intending To Pursue Her As A Flushed Or Caliginous Partner
CA: flushed
CA: ivve got other plans for my obsidian quadrant entirely
GA: Yes I Believe I Saw You Allude To Those On A Recent Memo
GA: Something About An Angel Descending From The Skies On Wings Of Viridian Flame
GA: Its A Very Colorful Metaphor
CA: in retrospect its a little melodramatic but yeah
GA: I Was Just Wondering Why In Particular You Chose To Use The Word Viridian
GA: Are You Entirely Aware Of What It Means
CA: wwell
CA: it just means green right
GA: Actually To Be Specific Its A More Bluish Shade Of Green
GA: It Might Be More Accurate To Say It Refers To The Color
GA: Um
GA: Jade
CA: er
CA: no no no fuck thats not wwhat i meant at all
CA: kan i got no interest in you wwhatsoevver caliginously speakin
CA: sorry if you got that message from me it wwas just bad wword choice is all
GA: I Kind Of Figured As Much
CA: i wwas just sayin vviridian instead a green cause it sounded more dramatic an it had a vv in it
CA: not really sure wwhat other wword i could use for the color wwithout just outright sayin it
CA: i guess chartreuse wwould be a little more on the mark but fuck if that isnt just the least dramatic fuckin wword evver
GA: Chartreuse
GA: I Guess That Would Be Closer To
GA: Wait
GA: Wait Wait Wait No
GA: You Cannot Possibly Mean Who I Think You Mean
CA: ok kan wwith all due respect i dont really wwant to talk about this particular plot right noww
CA: its a little further off an right noww i really need to focus all my think pan space on this thing wwith ter
GA: Thats Fine I Guess
GA: But I Mean
GA: Seriously
GA: Her
GA: ??????
CA: kan
CA: i am deadly fuckin serious about this
CA: an im not fuckin talkin about it anymore
CA: alright
GA: Okay
GA: I Mean Youre Completely Insane But Okay
GA: Anyway I Guess I Wish You Luck With Miss Pyrope
GA: Im Glad That Youre Over The Whole Thing With Feferi
GA: Honestly You Can Do Better Than Her Anyway
CA: uh
CA: thanks i guess
GA: Dont Mention It
GA: And As Always If Theres Any Way I Can Help Id Be Glad To Assist
CA: actually there is one wway you could
CA: though i realize this is ridiculously bold a me to ask
GA: What Is It
CA: wwell
CA: havve you by any chance evver gone through that ancient journal vvris is alwways haulin around
GA: You Mean Mindfangs Journal
GA: Yes Ive Gone Through It Once Or Twice
GA: Why
CA: wwell then by any chance did you happen to read anythin about a certain jadeblooded slavve the marquise wwas fond of
GA: Well Yes But
GA: Um
GA: Wait
GA: Are You Asking Me To Participate In This
CA: that wwas kinda the idea
CA: but mind you it wwont be as a combatant
CA: id just like you to be present for a little surprise
GA: Hmmm
CA: i realize this is a lot to ask and i got pretty much nothin to offer you in return
CA: an then theres the wwhole bit about havvin to make a wwhole neww costume for yourself
GA: Oh
GA: Oh Yes I Suppose I Would Need A Costume Wouldnt I
GA: Id Need To Craft A Dress Fitted For Only The Closest And Most Beloved Of Mindfangs Slaves
GA: Something Light And Exotic And Scandalously Revealing
GA: An Outfit That Somehow Symbolizes Both Status And Prestige And Also Complete And Utter Objectification
CA: uh
CA: i guess
GA: My Goodness That Would Certainly Be A Challenge
GA: Especially To Complete It In Less Than Twenty Four Hours
GA: I Love It
CA: wwhat
CA: really
GA: Eridan Id Be Overjoyed To Help You In Your Little Gambit
GA: And Dont Feel Any Need To Compensate Me
GA: Really The Excuse To Make Another Dress Is Payment Enough For Me
CA: oh wwell great
CA: thanks a lot kan
GA: Its Truly My Pleasure
GA: Im Always Happy For An Excuse To Put My Tailoring Skills To Work
GA: In Fact Part Of The Reason I Hope This Flarping Session Goes So Well is Vriska Promised To Let Me Make You All Some More Fashion Conscious Costumes For Future Sessions
CA: oh shit really
GA: Yes
GA: I Mean No Offense To Any Of Your Ancestors But They All Made Some Pretty Regrettable Decisions With Regard To Their Apparel
GA: Like I Dont Understand Why So Many Of Them Insist On Mixing Their Blood Colors With Awful Tacky Splashes Of Bright Red
CA: oh man fuckin tell me about it
CA: i just dont get these broads and their fuckin obsession wwith that particular shade a crimson
GA: But I Mean At Least Mindfang Has The Decency To Limit It Strictly To Her Boots
GA: Redglare On The Other Hand Just Has To Wear It All Over And
GA: Ugh
CA: haha yeah i knoww
CA: too bad none a them wwere fortunate enough to havve an ancestor as fashionable as dualscar
GA: Well
CA: wwhat
CA: oh no dont evven start on me
GA: Look Dualscars Outfit Is
GA: Okay I Guess
GA: But I Mean
GA: The Cape
CA: wwhats wwrong wwith the cape
GA: Whats Wrong With The Cape Is That Its Fucking Ridiculous
GA: With The Huge Spikes Coming Off The Shoulders
GA: Combined With The Spiky Armor And The Striped Pants And The Complete Absence Of Sleeves Frankly Its Kind Of A Disaster
CA: alright look kan wwere friends an all
CA: but if you start hatin on capes im afraid wwe are OVVER
GA: Look I Dont Have Anything Against Capes In General
GA: But Arent They Kind Of A Thing For Special Occasions
GA: Like I Dont See How You Can Wear A Cape Every Day
CA: cause theyre fuckin badass ok
CA: sides i look fuckin amazin in a cape and you knoww it
GA: Well Of Course You Do
GA: I Mean With Your Broad Shoulders Youre Practically Built For A Cape
GA: But There Are Other Things That Would Look Just As Good On You
CA: like wwhat
GA: Well For One I Think Youd Look Absolutely Dashing In Something Like A Peacoat With A Nice Set Of Epaulettes
CA: wwhat are epaulettes
GA: Epaulettes Are Those
GA: Um
GA: Ugh I Feel Like I Should Be Culled For Defining Such A Beautiful Elegant Word Using Such Silly Terms
GA: But Epaulettes Are Those Little Frilly Things That Naval Officers Wear On Their Shoulders
CA: oh yeah the little frillies
CA: fuck yeah i lovve those things
CA: yeah thatd be badass runnin around in somethin like that
CA: throww a scarf on top a that an id be fuckin set
GA: Do You Really Have To Wear A Scarf
CA: kan wwevve been ovver this
GA: Yes Yes I Know
GA: Honestly Eridan Your Neck Isnt That Long Youre Just Being Overly Self Conscious
CA: kan youre just bein nice noww
CA: my neck is freakishly long an you fuckin knoww it
CA: im like a
CA: fuck is there evven such a thing as a neckbeast
CA: evven if there is it makes for a shitty fuckin simile
CA: wwhy couldnt wwe havve some other name for it that didnt make it so fuckin obvvious
GA: Even If Your Neck Is As Abominably Long As You Think It Is There Are Other Ways Of Covering It Up
GA: I Mean You Could Just Wear Something With A High Collar
GA: Or Maybe Toss It Up A Little And Wear Something Like A Cravat
CA: wwell
CA: a cravvat wwouldnt be so bad i guess
CA: man i really missed all this fashion talk
CA: youre like the only other troll that seems to givve a shit about stuff like this
GA: Yes Its Quite Regrettable
GA: But Really Im Always Happy To Talk With You About It
GA: I Might Even Be Willing To Design A Few Articles Of Clothing For You If Youd Allow It
CA: course id alloww it kan
CA: youre pretty the best tailor there evver fuckin wwas
GA: Thats Very Flattering Of You To Say Eridan
CA: no i mean it
