[The video shows a man of about eighteen, with a sheathed sword and a puzzled expression.]

So this is an app to create records for future samurai? And I just... say whatever I want?

Well. My name's Flynn, and I just passed the Gauntlet Rite. I'm from Kiccigiorgi, my best friend is Issachar, my favorite color is white, and...

This seems a little silly.

I had hoped that this book would allow me to write my experiences as I travel to Tokyo, but it appears that I may have bought a journal someone else has used, possibly writing about birdwatching? There are frequent references to ducks. Still, it is a beautiful city, and if I need to find another journal, I will.

[Behold, Lancer is surrounded by books...who'd have thought that he could take such an interest in reading...but the proof seems to be in the pudding.

In fact he's sitting with a book open in his lap right now, but he's not looking at it. He's staring into the void...er...the screen...and you're all gazing back right?

If you are that means he has your attention because he's about to make a request.]

Diarmuid if you get this I need you to show me your thigh.

[A beat later.]

If he doesn't get this somebody relay the message: Cu Chulainn needs to see your thigh.

[He'll take a few more seconds to ponder...because there's old business at hand he still hasn't taken care of.]

And to my healers I have payment for you...to my rescuers...Wolfwood and Vash...I'm still thinking, though you can make a wish and I'll try to fulfill it. I need to repay all of my debts though.

[More thinking...more thinking...]

Yup...that's everything.

[As Issei speaks, one might notice that he's wearing a maid outfit with fuzzy blue cat ears. One might notice anyway.]

My phone says my employer's number is out of service. This is obviously a problem - has anyone else who works at the cafe run into this?

Thank you for your time, community.

[You might notice that, as the audio kicks in, Lancer's voice has a very flat effect to it indicating that this is going to be a very difficult little speech.]

So. I take it after recent events everyone's alive and well? No skin sloughing off, no eyeballs hanging out of sockets?

Good, makes it easier to segue right into my point.

There's been a lot of comings and goings lately and I'm curious, are there any healers out there? Powerful, magical healers? I could use one. [That went down like a tar and vinegar cocktail. He's not used to asking for favors like this.]

I don't carry a whole lot on me, normally I don't need to, but I'll find a way to pay you back in kind. Favors, gifts, if you need to cash in some karma chips, I make for an excellent dating partner for any occasion...you know...whatever...

Opposite Doppelgangers | Grab Bag Virus | Video  
Lancer’s reached the end of the virus and it’s taken a very unpleasant turn for him. Warning, this is a dark little puppy…cut for violence! )

Best. Day. Ever. [yeah something’s not quite with this here Lancer in this here video…or less right than usual…it could be the jolly appearance, it could be that he was randomly pointing at nothing in particular…or that his index finger just kept missing the screen.] Oh my butterfly! Oh shite was that poetry…I should write a book…one of those big ass books of poetry they teach in universities…people’ll need a reference to go with it…but you can open it up anywhere and the magic’ll just touch you…

…Oi, oi! What were we talking about…[he’s losing track of his own thoughts, this is so great]…oh right…butterflies…they’re awesome…I saw that word somewhere, s’a good thing awesome…bunnies are feckin’ awesome…you can find bunnies on this nexus thing…pictures of bunnies…lots of bunnies...BUNNY!…But you know you find a lot of really bizarre shite as well…

Look at this!

Under this cut will be pictures, jokes, and roasting so warning! )

[ooc: So for the first few days Lancer will be experiencing the glorious Drunk virus…since drunkenness is a rare thing for him he will be enjoying this and he’ll probably add alcohol to the mix as well…because it’ll be an authentic drunken Irishman experience for him.]
10 April 2013 @ 08:55 pm
[As the video kicks in Cu Chulainn can be seen wearing a forced grin, it's actually a little manic. Almost like he'd been slipped a ton of caffeine.]

So my little redlegs (he has indeed been hanging around London too long)...[ as he says through clenched teeth doing his best to maintain his broad, twisted smile]...you wouldn't say this is a scary face right? This is a friendly face. This is an approachable face. This is a face you can trust.

[If only he could take you all and put you inside of his head.] Right?

[ bet you thought you wouldn't be seeing this particular account name again.

oh, ye of little faith.

her surroundings may be different, from what little can be made out of them over her shoulders; they look suspiciously like a normal teenager's bedroom, in fact. maybe one that some of you recognise. Saber herself is dressed much more casually than she has ever been before; no armour, no dress, no suit, just a white t-shirt paired with a brown cardi. very average-looking. but otherwise, she looks much the same as she ever has. ]

Hello, community. I apologise for not letting you know of my whereabouts earlier, but the past few days have been more hectic than I would have expected. But please rest assured, I am completely fine, in no small part thanks to the efforts of others.

[ it's not a complete lie. she's physically fine, at least. ]

I need not say, I hope, that the Fourth Holy Grail War has ended. [ her expression tightens for a second, there, with worry and something like frustration. something smaller behind that like regret. ] I realise some of you may have questions about what has transpired in the past week, and I will do my best to answer them if I can.

[ she knows some of the events were broadcast. the events, and part of the aftermath, apparently; she made sure to go through the community and get up to speed. which is partly what leads to her next question: ]

Relatedly, would I be able to trouble anyone with a request for a world-hop? There are... a few things that I would like to check up on, if I may. Thank you for indulging me.

[Bazett is dressed as usual as she appears on the feed. But, instead of her usual neutral expression, she has a peaceful smile.]

I-I just wanted to say...

[She hesitates for a moment, blushing.]

I am really glad I encountered this network and met all of you! Especially Lancer.

[Another pause.]

...And that is because...I really...really...

...Like Lancer.

video - So what happened to the village idiot?  
[Anyone who knows even a little bit about the Táin Bó Cuailnge saga might know what happened to Cú Chulainn when he found the boy-troop training at Emain Macha slaughtered. He takes on a horrifying ríastrad type form, more commonly known as 'warp spasm'...and like the Hulk, he becomes a giant, hideous, rage beast. Emphasis on the hideous.

This time there's no one to send an army of bare chested women at him or to dunk him in barrels of cold water (which his rage would turn into boiling water). Nope, this time he had to self sooth.

Which brings us to the ridiculous state that he's in right now.

His body is half in/half out of a shallow creek in some kind of wooded area...or it might have been a wooded area once upon a time ago. Right now it looks like a giant came galumphing through and pulled up most of the surrounding tress by their roots as if they were nothing more than weeds. The surrounding vegetation had seen its fair share of better days as well.

Of course tearing up the forest isn't the only method for self soothing that he's tried, just take a gander at the barrels, the bottle, the jars, and beakers lying around and try not to think too hard about where all of that substance is right now. London will be awakening shortly to an alcohol ransack, but that's okay because Cú Chulainn is safely out of the city.

In fact, he's just plain out, which is why he's covered in muck, his face is planted in the grass, and a small family of hedgehogs are attempting nest in his hair for the day. Weather he finally managed to wear himself out or if he really was able to consume enough toxins, it might be a mystery as to how he finally managed to calm down.]

How do you make somebody happy when they're convinced that they don't deserve it, probably because there are some people out there who want them to believe that?

[Video...on purpose this time]  
Unlike last time, this time I have control over this thing. Wild, isn't it?

So you get a video on purpose...isn't that the most fortuitous thing?

Actually I'm a little reluctant to show you this because it's embarrassing and I don't embarrass easy...but it's also been a long time since I've laughed so hard. Being able to laugh is important, I think it outweighs embarrassment so I'll go ahead and show you...

...Just remember I'm much better looking than the kid in this video. Don't forget that. It's very, very important that you remember that. I was so damn good looking in my day they wanted me to get married out of fear for their own wives and daughters. So devastatingly handsome...

If we understand that then here:

Well…the virus was interesting, now that it’s over it’s onto business. I’ve just about run out of time for deliberation so first things first.

Kefka Palazzo if you see this we need to talk…actually I’ve been meaning to talk to you for a while. Anyone who knows him or has regular contact with him, send him my way.

I have some things to take care of and once I’m done I’ll have anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days until I fade from existence. Either way it's plenty of time to take a stab at all of my goals if something goes wrong, but Akeldama has graciously decided to adopt me so you’ll have to fight him in order to be my guardian if you’re feeling envious heh.

Right! I’ve also been thinking that this is something I should probably do on my own. Partially out of stubborn pride, but I’m more concerned about the risks, my luck, and my uncanny ability to destroy everything I touch. I have certain advantages so I’ll use them to the best of my ability.

Of course now I have reasons to exist so don’t worry too much; there are things that I need to change and I don’t think I could rest otherwise.

That covers just about everything.

Ah, we're still on for that drink when you're feeling better Auron.

[It’s probably the last thing you’d see this Lancer doing, but presently he’s hovering over a small wooden tub that’s filled with only a few inches of water. His arms are in the tub and his hands are vigorously scrubbing something that’s wiggling around excitedly. Upon closer expression the little wiggler is a puppy, a soapy little puppy just dying to leap out of the tub.]

H-hey! So far we’ve been doing this your way…if you want to follow me around ‘least you can do is smell better, Stinks McGee.

[Yeah, he’s really good at making up the names.]

[And then, from out of the shadows comes a voice.]

I see you’ve made a new friend, how cute…a hound for The Hound…though you wouldn’t really call that a hound would you? It looks more like pillow stuffing if you ask me.

[You’d think the growling would be coming from the dog, but no, Lancer’s the one growling at the shadow and very convincingly.]

Yeah? Well no one asked you, your Royal Shite-Headedness. Go crawl back into the hole from whence you came and take the bastard with you.

[The shadow chuckles and then steps forward revealing an arrogant looking young man.]

Speaking of which, you think that you and the pillow stuffing will get to live happily ever after. Or that you’ll even live that long?

[Lancer just gives him a noncommittal snort.]

But, you know, I’ll be happy to take care of it after you’re gone.

[It seems the stranger has worn out his welcome because Lancer’s response is to summon a spear and lob it right at the other man’s face, but instead of hitting him in his money maker the spear grazes his cheek and disappears into the shadows beyond.]

Temper, temper.

Get lost.

[And without another word the strange character disappears back into the shadows.]

Accidental Video  
[As the video begins it opens on a very peculiar scene, two individuals caught in a narrow passage. Once could be recognized as a wily looking Lancer (Cú Chulainn) the other individual is a spellbinding young woman with blonde hair.

Within their limited confines the girl holds a fighting stance on the ground and in her hands there appears to be an invisible, but very real, weapon of sorts.

Lancer is in a more gravity defying position, posed exactly diagonal of her with a red spear held out in front of him. This red spear was pressing back against the invisible weapon in the girl's hands enabling him to brace himself in his crouched position high on the wall above her. Regardless of whether on not the girl let her own stance drop, there was little risk of Lancer actually falling or hurting himself simply because he was Lancer.

Further down the alleyway another figure could be seen, though he was half hidden by Lancer and the young girl, it was clearly a boy with reddish hair wearing a school uniform. Judging by the way he’s standing and based on what little the viewer can see, he seems shocked…though by what is unknown because the audience is coming in on a conversation that seems to be midway finished.]

And why should I do this favor for you? [She’s a very serious looking young woman.]

Well…there’s no reason in particular, Saber, but [a grin forms on Lancer’s face, it’s absolutely creepy…a cross between blood thirsty and too excited] I’ll be sure to make it worth your while.

And why should we listen to you, so far you’ve brought nothing but trouble…and we’re supposed to believe this isn’t a trap?

Eeeeeh…you have such a poor opinion of me [for a brief moment Lancer looks insulted, but the look is very insincere] I’m a product of this war just like you, I’m not the skeezey kind of guy you’re making me out to be…I’m a man of my word.

[Saber pauses for a moment considering him, not that she believes him for a second.]

You said you’d make it worth our while, what could you possibly offer us?

Well, I could offer you my life; it would be one stepping stone closer to your goal…

[Saber almost looked shocked by the offer.]

What could be so important you would just give up your life for, this person you spoke of isn’t your Master!

[Lancer just shrugs.]

Well I understand that’s an offer you won’t accept, but I know things as well…information can be just as valuable in our situation…

…what do you say?

[She gives him a contemplative look.]

Going once.

[Still thinking about it.]

Going twice.

[A moment more and then…]

Fine, if you can arrange something we’ll think about it…but I’m still not saying we’ll do it.

[The malignant grin on Lancer's face broadened all the more.]

I’ll take it.

[And with that Lancer disappears, literally, and the video cuts.]
