After some thought I have changed my system.

Helltank’s Anti-Idiot System
1) Should a particular user prove himself detrimental to the community, the first step is to determine if his actions are illegal. If so, flag him and be done with it. If not, proceed to step 2.
2) If his actions are legal but irritating and pissing everyone off, then an official complaint about the user, preferably with links to shitposts. A request to modify the user’s behavior might be PMed/shouted to the user as well. I suggest complaints be placed in this thread.
3) If, after multiple complaints, the user fails to change his behavior, an official statement will be made in the master thread that a list of (such and such) regulars have decided to place that user on ForumMute due to his toxic behavior. This statement serves the purpose of drawing attention to that user’s behavior. A summarized version of the complaints about his behavior should be posted here and linked to in the Master Thread post. This statement will also, hopefully, encourage others to use ForumMute as well instead of cluttering up the General or Master Threads(apologies for this) with arguments and complaints.

This way, the amount of people who are expressing disapproval of/ForumMuting a certain user is in inverse proportion to the quality of his posts.

Any questions?

[tl;dr]

[>normal kongregate stuff]

[>except with community action and lots of complaining]

[>and public mutelist]

[a public mutelist in general, not just for this, is probably useful in the first place because if there are people who’ve muted each other like that blohd dude muting gonkey it could probably explain some confusion]

[if his actions aren’t actually illegal, then it’s basically a lynch mob; if he/she’s disruptive to games then hosts can ban him/her at their own discretion]

[still doesn’t explain how you come to consensus; if you somehow get this implemented i am literally going to flood the system with complaints about you unless that’s fixed; if you don’t need to have consensus and can literally just post complaints about anyone then i can still do that; even if you can impose a minimum limit on the number of people complaining i’m pretty sure i can convince some people to go along with it (including my friends tellhank and Helltamk) because they think you’re an idiot]

Kongregate’s Anti-Idiot System
1) Should a particular user prove himself detrimental to the community, the first step is to determine if his actions are illegal. If so, flag him and be done with it. If not, proceed to step 2.
2) Cry salty tears.
3) Repeat until you ban them from all your things and learn to ignore them, or they do something illegal.
4) Repeat until everyone does that.

[look, i can write up fancy too]

[sadly this system is predicated on the people using the system not being idiots, and sadly it doesn’t seem they can handle that, but at least it’s not just some dude claiming a plan as his when his plan is basically ‘file official complaint>file unofficial complaints>stick unofficial complaints in a place where people can see them’]

[No, he’s a mentally ill dude on the internet. For reference, occooa isn’t defending his actions, just, y’know, his ability to not get treated like shit. Not to mention that people bothering him was just generally unproductive. To be honest I don’t particularly remember any particular things committed against Dev but certainly the situation would’ve been better if people hadn’t all simultaneously lost their heads.]

[also gee bloody i didn’t know you made the forum games forum, no wonder you’re so personally outraged]

I’m pissed at him, because he’s annoying Knob, not because I feel all high and mighty. And lemme see, if Dev is pissing us off, calling us terrorists, etc. we’re not allowed to be mean to him? That doesn’t seem fair at all.

[then call him a faggot when he does things if you MUST but you don’t need to constantly exalt him to the position of ‘scourge’, though you’re as well just ignoring him]

[plus it’s generally in bad taste to pick on the mentally ill]

[unfortunately people do that rather than exercising some sense, yes]

[i already considered this but what i said was based on the assumption that the person considered in this didn’t read through the logs of everything he did; ‘meeting the guy’ is basically the same as reading his logs, you wouldn’t need to engage in discourse with him; nonetheless i don’t think everyone reads up on developous when he appears, they just go ‘oh, who’s this person and why does everyone hate him’; there is much information in this forum to sift through]

When I got here, I said, why so mean to developous? Then I got to know him, but my opinion didn’t change. And PLEASE don’t say “you just didn’t know what he did”, because YES, I did. I’m not stupid and that’s a poor excuse for harassment. I didn’t like or dislike developous, but he helped me to form opinions on a lot of users.

Originally posted by ConstantProgress:

I just want to play games. So, can this thread be locked, thus, this conversation over? I really just don’t want this anymore. Just quit the conversation:
as I have done…right…NOW.

I think this request should be honoured, considering THE THREAD IS BASICALLYCOME SHIT ON THIS GUY”. And you won’t even allow him the choice to make it stop. Fucking wonderful.

[never advocated harassment for developous; in case you haven’t noticed i don’t like the way helltank treats people and i don’t particularly find it applies to anyone; i only meant that people would sometimes be unable to understand the context of why developous is excluded for example]

[when i said that people didn’t necessarily understand, i meant it’s difficult to understand the context for any sort of situation without witnessing it yourself firsthand; you might hear what developous did but you wouldn’t necessarily understand what he’s like without meeting the guy; if you claim that you can fully understand a situation from second-hand accounts then yes, you ARE stupid]

[if that’s not what you mean like sorry bro]

I think this request should be honoured, considering THE THREAD IS BASICALLY “COME SHIT ON THIS GUY”. And you won’t even allow him the choice to make it stop. Fucking wonderful.

[personally i’m fine with people shutting up about him and dealing with their own internal affairs; that was sort of the point of what i said; if he’s going to talk back about it then they can have a discussion if they want]

[as for this thread, the topic is ostensibly not about disliking constantprogress, it’s a discussion of the affairs of fgf; he just happens to be relevant and if anything gets too inflammatory you can always flag it]

And why so mean to Helltank?

[because he’s being an asshat]

Does it seem to you that Helltank is way more mature than CP?

[no, and neither do you]

Actually I think the crux of the problem is in the moderators.

[no, the job of the moderators is to run an inclusive site; it isn’t their goddamn job to ban people from the site unless as an absolute last resort, and if you don’t like that write a complaint to the people who own the site]

If these mentally unfit people are promptly muted in the FGF, we don’t need to harass them, so it is good for both parties? You don’t think FGF regulars like to harass people, right? And you don’t think people like to be harassed, do you?

[please stop being stupid]

And using the standard across “da interwebz”, our harassment to CP is relatively minor. Petite, I want to say. You don’t really want to know how Krinlabs regulars harassed me 10 years ago.

[‘well, officer, i may have murdered that man, but compared to SATAN…’]

[your personal issues have nothing to do with this; please don’t let them affect your conduct towards people]

Hence I don’t think this thread should be locked. We didn’t say CP is fat; we also didn’t say CP’s momma is fat; and we didn’t write CP’s username on a picture of a penis. The only accusation is that CP is mentally unfit for FGF, and this is widely agreed. (For the more serious parts of FGF, at least.)

[the thread is ostensibly not for drawing a lynch mob and that’s why i’m okay with it]

[if the thread was as you claim rather than being a place for people to have discussion, then it should not exist]

Indeed. Problem solved:
1. Ignore games you want to ignore.
2. Mute people and then make games and say that people you have muted can’t join. If they try to interfere, report them for harassment.

[precisely]

[excuse me if i’m talking out of my ass because i haven’t followed this farce]

[no, you don’t need a system to deal with ConstantProgress, he’s not really impeding your ability to play games or enjoy the forum if everyone who doesn’t like him bans him from their games or ignores him; since vote is pretty unanimous that he sucks then that’s effectively a ban from fgf until he stops sucking]

[until he breaks the site or forum rules it’s probably up to individual discretion what you do about him; true, there’s a rule against being an asshat, but if we applied that tellhank would get banned too; constantprogress might be a dick, but so is tellhank; that rule’s generally taken pretty lightly or we’d have bans everywhere]

[personally i’ve read a couple of his posts and already i think he’s an asshat but then so are lots of people]

[if you think he’s going to ruin your game, don’t let him join]

[if you don’t like what he posts, don’t bother reading his posts]

[hell, since vote is pretty much unanimous that he sucks you can probably get away with forummuting him]

[as long as it doesn’t get in the way of anything else, people are free to argue with him if they want, i still think it’s stupid but whatever; hell, civil discussion is fine, i just don’t really expect both parties to be able to hold one]

General Arguments Against Letting Scrubs Into FGF
1) It is generally acknowledged that FGF receives many newcomers.
2) It is generally acknowledged that a certain percentage of these newcomers do undesirable things like spam and make posts of extremely low quality.
3) It is generally acknowledged that some of these undesirables can be very persistent if shown any mercy and will keep on making spammy/shitty posts when told nicely to cease and desist.

THEREFORE:

1) For the good of FGF, an effective method of ensuring undesirables do not infiltrate us must exist.
2) As experience has shown, talking nicely to them does not work very well.

I PROPOSE:

1) The first time, tell them to stop making low-quality posts.
2) The second time, order them to get out of FGF.
3) The third time, flag all their posts and boycott their games.

THIS:

1) Will ensure that we do not have undesirables
2) Will ensure that future undesirables are scared away
3) Will ensure that genuinely good newcomers are allowed to stay.

[firstly i’ve gotta say that you aren’t exactly talking nicely to him helltank, but whatever, i’m sure you have your reasons]

[another thing; the second time you order them to get out of FGF yet they’re just free to like… not do that? it’s only the third time you actually do something? remind me what the point of this step is?]

[as far as i can see there are basically three methods you can do anything by; collective boycott, institutional boycott or just calling the mods to deal with things]

[i’ll start with the mods; assuming copro is genuinely trying and is just an idiot, they have actual authority unlike helltank who is basically just a swearing idiot on the internet; signaling that he (and probably some of the other parties involved judging from the contents of helltank’s posts, but as i said i haven’t been following) are in the red would probably make him stop. reading copro’s posts, mind, there’s always a good chance that he’ll just be like ’i’m institutionally oppressed!’ and will stick around forever because it’s basically not the mods’ job to ban anyone; still if they’re fair and unbiased and try to cool things (like the mods generally are and do) then maybe he’ll listen. i have my doubts. of course, gevock is basically perennially unavailable and there’s still no guarantee that things won’t just do a developous, as it were]

[institutional boycott is basically what helltank suggests, i assume, since we already have the power to boycott anyone we like. if that’s not what he’s suggesting, he’s free to correct me, but i can’t see anything else that we don’t already have in this area. assuming this suggestion IS what i think it is, honestly this is so flawed it’s laughable. firstly, what are you going to do, set up a public blacklist? post in the master thread a list of people who are to be destroyed at all costs? the problem with such a thing is that you have to get unanimous agreement; how are you going to make sure other people on the forum join in with the blacklist of doom? threaten them with the blacklist of doom if they don’t comply? if not everyone wants to blacklist someone it’s impossible to follow through on it without thrashing around and laying waste to the community. and if you don’t think agreement has to be unanimous, who the hell arbitrates? who decides that ‘x is a shitposter’? and then even if you go with unanimous vote, who gets to vote? do i get to vote even though i never play any forum games? does some random person just wandering in get to vote? if copro makes an alt who wanders in, do they get to vote? if you have standards for voting in that case, where do you set them? post count is not really much of an indicator; and if you choose people by group decision then it’s the same problem of who gets a vote on that. and then what if someone changes their mind later, they don’t want to be in on this blacklist of doom thing? does the blacklist just fall down, or is it ETERNAL AND UNFORGIVING]

[second, who the hell enforces such a thing as ‘flagging all their posts’? do you just get everyone who doesn’t oppose the decision actively to join you in whacking the blacklisted over the head? or is there going to be some small, overzealous group of people just going around whacking people; ignoring what happens if those people diminish or just don’t check threads, it’s the mods’ bloody job to moderate. and if you don’t exterminate their posts wherever you find them, you’re basically just banning them from certain places, which makes me question the need for some kind of formal system; surely you can manage your own places]

[third, do you really think such a thing is going to make the community look good? remember how every time someone new showed up to the developous encounter they were like ‘but wait, what if he’s not such a bad guy, why are you guys bullying him?’ before experiencing him for themselves and joining the crowd of people who don’t like him? unless the people were there when the decision was made, they won’t take one side or another until they get more experience. and what if copro is still there, and he happens to be convincing? even if he’s not, does having the GIGANTIC DOOM BLACKLIST where people can see it really leave a good impression? ‘all ye who enter here, obey rules or we’ll collectively lynch you’.]

If someone is deliberately spamming/trolling with no attention to advice given by others, nor the rules, then action should be taken.

Otherwise If they are genuinely wanting to create a forum game but lack experiance thus leading to a lower quality thread, then we should help them through the way and give constructive advice.

Helltank if your “system” was implemented, I (along with many others) would not be here today. Just look at some of my early games :)

[you can see from posts like this one that some people would be generally concerned about the possibility of being banned; do you really think people are going to want to join a community with something like that taped up? even if they do, do you think it creates a friendly atmosphere? and that’s if it doesn’t get worse over time; assuming we manage to hold it at the current standard we probably still look like a bunch of pricks]

[fourth, as some people mentioned, what if the person changes? fgf tends to attract a lot of young people; y’know, people who haven’t matured? if you go out of your way to DESTROY THEM UTTERLY then there’s no room for them to come back and not suck unless they stealth alt. and even then, there’s some chance that they might be resentful. sure, if people who don’t like them boycott them, people who don’t like them boycott them. if on the other hand the community comes together to destroy them and all their works they probably won’t come back or will even make deliberate efforts to disrupt the community; and since the mods are so slow about anything, they’ll get away with that for quite a while. and no matter how much enthusiasm you may have now, would you really want to flag thousands of copro’s posts? not just copro; any ‘shitposters’ who drift in?]

[fifth, although you can basically get any post removed by flagging it, you miiiight just attract the attention of the mods after a while. which is basically calling in the first option i dealt with. and do you seriously expect them to be okay with this? i can imagine gevock’s disappointment already, followed by some comments about loving this community]

[this isn’t even mentioning how stupid the ‘three-strike’ system is, because that’s not integral to the idea]

[however all of these problems can be avoided by you using your own personal discretion and ability to boycott; if you don’t want him playing your games, why are you sitting around talking about how much of an issue he is instead of stopping him from being an issue to you personally? if other people find him an issue, they can deal with it personally]

[helltank might just be telling you ‘okay y’all imma ban him, you too’, but if people are free to make their own decision on the matter, there’s no need for discussion on WHAT WE MUST DO AS A GROUP TO STOP THIS MENACE; a discussion about elitism and inclusivism, sure; a discussion about copro’s behaviour, if you really want; a discussion about DESTROYING THIS THREAT TO THE FABRIC OF OUR SOCIETY? not really necessary. anything you don’t have the power to stop him from doing, the mods do; even if he just bitches endlessly in a thread you own you can easily flag the posts for being off-topic and therefore spam]

[honestly, helltank’s motives are hardly very noble, and you might as well ignore the guy; if you argue about it with him then nothing will get done anyway and you’re still capable of boycotting copro on a personal level; if you agree with him, nothing can be done as far as i can see other than wrecking some trains]

[as for copro himself, he’s an idiot; he’s either immature, selfish and entitled or pretending to be; if he wants advice i suggest he should consider other people, but honestly i think more than anything he just needs to get a bit older and more mentally developed if that’s the case]

[all i’ve seen him do is complain about how oppressed he is, but in some cases i really can’t blame him considering helltank’s behaviour]

I wouldn’t flag all their posts, or do it this quickly, but this. This. Most people won’t deserve this. Most people won’t NEED to be ran off. But, when they DO need to be. THIS.

[go effect something about it yourself rather than being butthurt]

I like abusing undesirables.

[well, there you have it; it’s an ego-trip]

[i’m not entirely certain you’re desirable, helltank]

Originally posted by Helltank:

There is a difference which you are overlooking. FGF as a whole isn’t stupid enough to approve obvious trolls. Unlike the voting masses.

[y’know i seem to remember people considering approving developous, considering the original title wasn’t meant to be a badge of respect, but an indicator of frequency of visiting]

Originally posted by Lebossle:

I would define “shitposter” as someone who repeatedly breaks similar warnings. Be it inactivity, game-throwing, or spam-like, or whatever. In light of this definition, if you think the situation is getting too bad you can always make a log of this kind of thing so that when a host gets a sign they can predict how much they can trust that person won’t have to be modkilled and why would they be.

inactivity

[toss them from the game, get substitute, ban them if they do it more often than you can handle]

game-throwing

[ban them from your games if it’s too much, restart the game if it was at an early stage, get substitutes]

spam-like

[mods]

you can always make a log of this kind of thing

[a log is fine; people can still use personal discretion; maintaining such a thing might be difficult, though (who does it?), and what if people don’t want their personal shames up for viewing? if you don’t actually link context for that, people reading it won’t have a proper indication of how trustworthy a person is and it’ll basically become a place for defaming people you don’t like]

I just want to play games. So, can this thread be locked, thus, this conversation over? I really just don’t want this anymore. Just quit the conversation:
as I have done…right…NOW.

[good job quitting; rather than ignoring them you continually shoot posts back at people]

[then again on the other hand a lynch mob might be forming, so it’s not like you have many other options]

I think this is obvious. You clutter up the forums with garbage, you are a nuisance to deal with in games that you join(to the extent that you got eliminated pre-game round 1 by host decision from Moles) and you generally act whiny and irritating.

You clutter up the forums with garbage

[>you]

It is my hope that if I do this often enough you will either clean up your act or gtfo. Both outcomes are acceptable.

[AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA no]

[he clearly won’t ‘clean up’ if you just vehemently personally attack him a lot; it’s more like he’ll just constantly bitch about how you’re trying to utterly destroy him]

[leave? maybe; chance is just as good that he’ll stick around just to annoy people]

[besides, we know your actual motive:]

I only pick on idiots. They’re enjoyable to pick on.

But yeah, I’m 90% sure that they are different people. Pushing aside proof shown in the differences in writing style, not a lot of people will try that hard to pretend to not have a alt. In addition, when CPB was spamming on the forums for the answer to a question, as he often does but CP does not, I asked CP the question and he quickly responded correctly. (The question was what is R4L). Plus, who would switch accounts as often as they post? There are a few irregularities, like they being 2 forum gamers and they having similar names and they both spelling my name querty, but I think that it’s more likely that they are indeed different people, and if they really is he, then who really cares that much anyways.

A lot of new people join and create a not-very well planned game or just a plain bad one or even one that breaks half the rules (this one won’t help I guess- maybe if the rules were better advertised…?) While this happens with older people too, and newer people create good games every once in a while, I believe this is a fair rule- even a experienced person ought to learn at least how to format things on this site before starting a thread. 100 posts isn’t that hard.
Wasn’t sure what thread to put it in so I leave it here. Mostly because, in the end, my petition will inevitably fail for some reason or other.

Luke Johnson

What terrible power… I can feel Holly’s essence return to me, but she remains silent. Weakened or otherwise, the angry electricity man defeated her more or less effortlessly when she provoked him. If he’s that easily pissed-off, there’s no guarantee he’ll leave us alone, now. Although everything else has left me alone up until now, I assume escorts aren’t meant to kill the party escorting them; there probably isn’t any guarantee of my safety.

I start rubbing my hands on my trousers; due partly to nervous fidgeting, partly to clean off the thin sheen of sweat on my hands. Is it uncomfortably warm or is it just me?

Erubetie shakes her head. “No, I have no quarrel with you. She brought that upon herself.” Although there hasn’t even been a slight drop in her composure, Erubetie seems less mirthful than before; even she is making an effort not to piss this thing off. That’s good. “We have no reason to fight each other, I think? If you have no objections, I think I shall just leave and take my human with me. It would likely be unwise for me to attempt this dungeon myself, since I assume it’s designed for two people.” I get the feeling that Erubetie was planning on leaving all along if anything happened to Holly. Hopefully, this thing will just let us leave.

And still, none of you realized I’m not dev. (Okay, maybe kad did.) Guys, I am disappoint.

[Congratulations on actually reading fake Devposts, Kad! You’re like the only one who cared to read them! And before they were removed, too!]

You bastard, why would you ever link to TVTropes. Don’t you know the consequences? People click it! Then they click another one, and another, and another and another, and before you know it 90 minutes have passed and they completely forgot about the paper they were about to write, so they go and complain to the person who linked to TVTropes in the first place!

(Srsly though TVTropes too addicting.)

[Only ninety? Pffft, WEAKLING.]

Hello everyone, I’m not very sober right now so I thought that now would be a good time to say I love you all. I know this sounds like something someone would say after doing omitted things but I honestly don’t believe it, as I always say when you’re under the influence you unleash your honest thoughts and feelings. I’m saying that we are great as a community, I like how we talk to each other human to human, that’s what I made this thread for. I love you all as a community even Dev as I am sure you are all good human beings and I’m am trying my hardest to communicate that to you, it took me ten minutes to get to the part of the paragraph I am in now.

As to say to Dev, human to human, that yes he irritates us a lot but; we all like the system we have and we’re all happy with the system that we have in place so why should we change out system just to support your system and your own happiness at the cost of our happiness? I understand that your Nexus idea suits you and make you happy but is it really worth sacrificing the happiness of other members? Your Nexus ideas are a system but here is not the place for it, we all like the system and it makes us happy. After all isn’t happiness what we all seek at the end of the day? Honestly, think of the bigger picture.

I know a lot of you read the first bit and decided to NOT take me seriously, deep down it’s how I feel about FGF. I know I was inactive for ages but after all, am I a bad person? No, or at least I don’t think so. Does the fact that I’m not the most level headed human right now matter, not at all. I guess the point I’m trying to get across is that whether we like it or not we are all a community and I’m willing to say that as long as everyone can respect the rules we have set then there is no reason not to welcome everyone into this community, with love.

[we already have plenty of applicants for that position; really more the problem is the lack of slots]

The angry lightning man attacks Holly; not being particularly ready for that, she gets whacked by a whole bunch of projectiles. The projectiles ignite on her, before promptly being dispersed in some amount of flaming shards from her, when the top layer of her skin is transumuted to bark and blown off.

But… Something is off. After getting hit, she staggers slightly as if about to fall over, supporting herself with a ribbon. Was that attack that powerful? Or… Is it the damage from before? She seemed fine when we came out, but she probably suffered a lot of damage-although the lost arm seemed bad, that might not be an issue for her given her unique constitution. On the other hand, that doesn’t mean she wasn’t hurt… She didn’t act any different and didn’t mention it, so I thought it was fine, but…

Oh, right. I have this healingmabob thing on the bracelet. Should I use it? It’s not like I’m particularly fond of Holly, but I am supposed to help her get through this (I think?).

“Fuck off. I don’t need your pity.” She caught my thoughts again? I really should try and keep those to myself.

… Well, not like I should force her, even with the condition she’s in.

“Fine, you want a fight, asshole? This is nothing!” You can say that all you like, but when you even struggle that much to say the words, it certainly doesn’t sound like it… She fires a single dark beam at Fury, and although it’s larger than normal, she’s practically shaking with the exertion.

“A-S-S-H-O-L-E. Asshole, I said. Where am I fucking taking you to?” My hand connects with my face. Holly, are you just completely oblivious to the fact that it’s mad, or do you just not care? He’ll slaughter you, especially with your condition.

The surroundings seem sort of familiar… Although at on first glance it might be more similar to that swamp I went to with Bob and Alice, being a swamp, it… Feels more similar to the dungeon we were just in, somehow. The colour scheme is different too, and the air is dry and not very humid… I don’t know any of these places so well but it’s probably the same one as before, if the weird plants and this odd feeling are anything to go by. Some of the plants are on fire, but if monsters so far are anything to go by, the scenery shouldn’t harm me either.

And up there, that’s… One of the boss-man’s Entities, isn’t it? Are we escorting him? I guess so, but does that mean he won’t do anything while we’re escorting? Or will he hold back.

“Oi, are you the asshole we’re escorting?” … Good way to make a positive first impression, Holly. I probably shouldn’t say anything to the scary glaring lightning-man, and Erubetie is just standing there, smiling, so she probably doesn’t feel the need to say anything either.

Apparently we’ve come to a consensus that Holly should handle diplomacy in this situation. God help us.

FUCKING MOTHERFUCKER FUCK FUCK” She’s not even being creative with her-wait, shit, that took off her arm? Shit.

Wait. It’ll just grow back, won’t it? I forgot because she looks almost entirely human (ignoring her ashen skin and those creepy eyes) if humans went about decorating themselves as presents. Mostly naked presents.

True to being a plant, Holly’s-not-an-arm-anymore-really soon covers its stump in resin. Come to think of it, even if she’s a human-looking entity (as it stands right now anyway), she’s still a plant. Those grow back pretty well. She doesn’t seem very strained, but I should probably just ask if she’s alright anyway.

“Are you okay, Holly?” We stop not even a few meters from leaving the booth. She glares at me. Right. Forgot she hates me with all the excitement of her losing an arm. I’m certainly glad it wasn’t me in her place, though.

“Yes, are you okay?” Somehow it seems odd for Erubetie to show any concern towards Holly. That smirk plastered across her face certainly doesn’t look sympathetic.

“Shut it, jello. It’s just an arm. This is nothing, you stupid bitch.” It’s just a flesh wound, as they say… Holly’s ribbons flex around menacingly as if to demonstrate that she’s still got more limbs than would be standard for a human being.

“Really? You look pretty beaten, Holly. Are you sure you’re okay?” To be fair, I’m not sure she’s okay, but I don’t think asking her that will make anything better.

“Shut the fuck up! Was that fight too much strain on you, huh? Jiggle about uselessly in the corner too much? I can go for another one of those fucking things!” … I don’t like how your grin widened in response to this, Erubetie.

“Oh, really? Well, I suppose it wouldn’t hurt me to go into another one… Though which mission type will it be this time?”

“Defeat! I’ll fucking beat up those bastards this time!”

“Oh, good choice. You’re not much good for anything else, I suppose.”

“What was that you blob-bitch?”

“Well, it’s not like you could do an escort mission… That would require cooperation with other people.” Apparently not taking the effort to respond, Holly just sort of storms straight back into the booth, Erubetie following smugly behind. Holly missing an arm and everything, this doesn’t seem like a good idea, though…

“What are you fucking waiting for, Luke? It’s fucking escort mission time!” … Could you maybe tone down the fucking, Holly? It’s not punctuation. I get the feeling people might overhear you constantly screaming it. Heh, screaming it. I kill myself.

“Are you sure we should do this? I mean, you seem pretty bea-Oh no.” Apparently not willing to talk about it, Holly just instead decides to grab me with her extendable ribbons (probably making a point again) and drag me inside the booth. And off we go, leaving as unceremoniously as I was dragged into this again.

… We’re back to the place from before. Farwoods, was it?
