A Luehmani and a Rianchimaru in Boyfriend Dungeon
Permalink

The lunch rush landed on the mall food court, filling it with people, shouts of 'Coffee for Tabitha! Tabitha?' and a severe lack of tables to be properly antisocial on.

Despite Louie best efforts to project an aura of 'go away', two office workers sat down at her table, cheerily chatting over their salads. They're frustratingly immune to glares from people wearing hi-vis over a stab vest. (And okay, they're totally allowed to sit at this table, it's not like she actually owns this table. But still. They didn't even ask.)

She does her best to ignore them. She just got off from A Shift-- the sort that makes you question how the general public has managed to keep themselves alive for so long, question what is up with the state of public education and water supplies that so many idiots are running around, along with the standard questioning your faith in humanity. Not to mention this is the first day of her new schedule, with all the fun sleep cycle fuckery that implies. While it is lunch time for normal, daywalking people, it's dinner for her, and she's been up far too long.

Short of it is: It's been a day where she deserves donuts with dangerous amounts of cinnamon for dinner. For lunch. (For dunch.)

'Yeah. I've never seen one that does that, before.'

Permalink

i mean, all the more reason to shut it down quick, before it terrorises some third place

Permalink

'Definitely! Feel ready to move out?'

Permalink

as ready as i'll ever be. swording seems like the sort of thing better picked up by doing than talking.

Permalink

'Yeah. Let's get going.' They'll bounce the mental sensation of forming an attack, but will note it's different, and start leading the way down another tunnel.

They're accosted relatively soon by a small swarm of monsters.

Lianne is, at least, a good fighter.

Permalink

Louie just-- let's her self be wielded. Lianne knows what she's doing, so Louie's gonna trust her.

Permalink

Not taking any actions isn't super conducive to magic, even if Lianne's a skilled swordsperson. 

"Can you try coordinating attacks with me? This'll be easier with magic," Lianne sends after the wave's taken care of.

Permalink

Okay, magic, she can do this-- she can definitionally do this, that's how being a weapon works.

She's tries to coordinate--

Permalink

That gets something!

Permalink

It gets a crackle of lightening, arcing up and down the blade.

Permalink

She's able to use it to cut through a few monsters. "Good! That's definitely the right direction."

Permalink

this is SO much better than a chair

The lightening has started grounding itself through the monsters.

Permalink

"Hah! I can imagine!" They're an even better swordsperson with the magic helping, able to adapt fairly quickly to the lightning.

Permalink

any guesses on how far it is to the generator?

Permalink

"Usually they get a lot denser right up close, but we cleared a lot of them out earlier. I think we're just about there, though."

Permalink

that's good. sooner this is over, the less i have to worry that someone going to trip over one of these things.

Permalink

The craggy little passageway opens suddenly, the cave yawning wide, and here's where all the insect-kittens must be - perhaps hundreds or thousands, and many of them bigger - 

Lianne and Marian both prepare to fight.

"This is it, I bet," Lianne says. "Keep your senses alert for anything dramatically out of place."

Permalink

i'd like to think giant insects are out of place EVERYWHERE, but noted.

 

Permalink

"The portal stones usually don't - fit their surroundings, but it's hard to make any generalizations past that."

They step forwards, and open with a two handed swing through a few larger kitten-insects that'd turned to leap at them.

Permalink

The kittens get very electrocuted.

Permalink

The fight's hard, but they're good - 

Louie might soon notice something smooth like glass, flecked with little rainbows, and nothing like the horror-movie surroundings.

Permalink

She does her best to point at it mentally. that looks like the thing we're looking for.

Permalink

"Good catch." They'll blast through a handful of kitten-monsters - though these are getting to be more tiger-insects - until they're close enough to bring Louie down on the stone in an overhead chop.

Permalink

She's pretty sure lightning does bad things to portal generators.

Permalink

It, in fact, shatters.

The dunj ripples and fades around them, revealing a city park.

"This is where we entered," Lianne sends.
