Louise summons a commoner bard.
OMG, Goodbye Halkeginia! XD
I wanna see that! Someone please be that crazy!
Hey look another Nasuverse crossover. Void Bladeworks
Is Archerko supposed to be this perverted? nevermind, it is played mostly for comedic effect so far. Louise didn't order her to go sleep in the hay right away, hmm this might actually turn out to be goo-
The Princess's Chariot is subdued by a band of 9 commoner thiefs.
my face when
Needless to say I closed the fuck out of that tab.
ah the Paru, always so jelly.
What would she think of the instant fear she would get once her ears are discovered?
Wouldn't be the first time. Considering what she is and the mythology around her kind. Seeing humans flee in terror is expected since if you'd see a Bridge Princess when with a lover/couple she'd immediately threaten to kill you unless you broke up immediately.
Maybe a response that she expected from the Old Times and finding it a little refreshing... Spoiler: Then Jealous of Elves (whatever an Elf is....) and what they can do.
Need to think more before posting
I think you mean fed up.
I actually would rather no one did this.. It'd be like trying to write Deadpool.. I just don't think anyone could do it decently..
Keep in mind she was the portal , and the portal was her. Her last intent before becoming subsumed in that portal (and it ain't cheap conducting Dimensional Transfer from Halkagenia to Mid-Childa, especially at that distance) was that she MUST get a Familiar. No matter the cost.
Basically, the portal was a manifestation of a sentience running on that singular goal of getting Arf. That was the only goal, the only aim of that portal. It was only self-aware in so far in things pertaining to it's objective. Not the ramifications of accomplishing it's objective.
That is correct. But the only thing she remembers out of the entire process is a very brief, almost dream-like glimpse of Lutecia's face. Now, had the connection been maintained for a second or two longer, the portal might have collapsed from Lutecia's instinctive counter-probing attempts and we would have had a Summon Goes Wrong Situation here, with Louise stuck on Mid-Childa.
I'd imagine a tussle will break out between Lutecia and Louise in that scenario, with Louise/Portal unwittingly trying to drag her in, and Lutecia countering and dragging Louise all the way to Mid-Childa instead, piggy backing on Louise's mana. After all, in such a duel, the winner would depend on how dexterous you are with magic. Obviously, Louise will loose horribly in such a struggle. In fact, only a hand-full of people in TSAB space probably would stand a chance against Lutecia in such a struggle.
That would be an interesting premise in itself, having a thoroughly confused Louise (and very exhausted) seating right besides Arfs' bedroom door. If she didn't fell into imaginary space first.... though given Lutecia's degree of spell-control, she wouldn't.
Incoherence played a part. Single Mindedness was another. But the only thing she remembers out of the whole thing after completing the incantation was the brief moment her magic and Lutecia's magic touched.
But it was not "consciously" deliberate at that sense. Plus, Portal! Louise automatically assumed that someone else was trying to ninja her Familiar. She came first after all! It was her's by rights!
Correct, that's what Louise thought sub-consciously. She would never acknowledge that though...nor does she even remember it.
Some additional thoughts: the feat Louise performed was not for free. Indeed, by rights, she shouldn't even have the power, as crazily large as her mana pool is to reach out that far beyond Earth. While the effects might not crop up on the spot, consider what would happen if Louise tried hard to cast magic within twenty four hours of that incredible and very mana draining feat of summoning. There was alot of mechanics going on (starting with the very nature of Alstiem ravine to the Windstones a kilometer below the Academy) that made such a crazy summoning possible.
Also, expect her attitudes to Arf to be a little better because of the amount of effort she went through to procuring her, those wolf ears and tails, and the fact that Arf is familiar with doing domestic chores. It was one of her self-appointed duties as a familiar (pardon the lame pun) after all. Indeed, objectively speaking, Louise's portal casting basically cannot be deliberately directed. At least, not at Louise's (non-existent) level of control over her magics.
Next, consider the effects of a well connected , senior Infinite Librarian kidnapped via Dimensional Transfer. At least, that's how it's going to look like to some within the TSAB higher echelons. In-fact, I think it could be a stand-alone plot by it's own, but that's for the Speculative Tales of the White-devil thread.
Finally, have you ever wondered what happened to Louise's previous failed attempts? Me-thinks that the TSAB would soon get reports of a strange green dimension transfer portal showing up in some Dimension Ports throughout the Administrated worlds....
Read it to see what you meant. Am now banging my head on my table.
Nah she ate breakfast. Although she's probably both. Going to the the Ancient City for breakfast? Jealousy of those ordering more. Jealous of those with kids. Socializing ones. Jealousy of the skill of the cooks. Too much to be jealous of. Best to eat alone at home than deal with that stress.
Edit: I think I'll edit that anyhow... tomorrow
It's Zero's Dog and Blade of the Void all over again.
She's just so jealous!
Okay that makes sense Zelinko. The terror will come and she will be used to it since Yukari made a point to say that all youkai sealed underground had horrible powers and that the Miko should just beat anyone in their path.
Unlike Yamame, Yuugi, Satori or her Pets Parsee's ability is the most subtle and insidious. Combined with the fact that seeing couples Spoiler: Drives her to remember her past as a human and possibly see the pair as her former love and the woman he ran away with Can drive her to a rage or starting to plot their demise... and being a youkai she's probably learned all sorts of hexes that are non lethal.
Of course the Duel may be in fact a spoiler: ]Two on one. Louise I'm juggling as being resistant to the ability or possibly starting to find that if Jealousy has power like that that she wants it. Because she's jealous that the jealousy of Parsee makes her strong and of course Parsee will be jealous that a HUMAN wants her power. Which probably may lead to a Jealousy loop which may some how end up with Louise becoming a Bridge princess or at least as jealous as one. I just don't see Louise having the prerequisites to become or the drive.
If Parsee has control of her influence things might turn out okay... but if it leaks out... Shit will get real... Hurray for teenagers.
I suppose that makes things like Wardes' betrayal rather...interesting, no? Looking forward to reading more; Parsee was always one of my favorite Touhous.
If Parsee and Louise get to the love potion incident what would the former do? Would she be jealous of Louise's sudden affection and try to prove that she has more by grudgingly accepting the girl's love?
Considering Parsee's past, and just the amount of bad feelings having something that allows someone to steal ANYONE away from a relationship they are in either Parsee will want it for herself (unlikely), be upset that it is messing with her job (possible), or have flashbacks to her own failed love affair and flip the fuck out over someone blithely throwing around something capable of causing the same results of separating couples with little regard to the feelings of those involved (absolute worst case scenario). A double standard on that last one yes, but Parsee is self serving (Jealousy and all that) and if it does make an impact on her like that then it is unlikely Montmercy will live for very long, and considering how illegal, and the repercussions of using them, love potions are implied to have and just how important Louise's family is........... she might get away with it.
In all honesty I'm hoping for someone who has enough damn common sense to go to the Headmaster, Colbert... anyone with a lick of authority during that incident instead of convoluted threats and/or guilty trips into taking Montmorency and co. to the water spirit
Re: Parsee summon:
Montmorency, when Guiche gets caught two-timing. I'm sure Paruparu will find the entire situation very interesting.
Why have love potion shenanigans at all if you're not writing harem comedy?
Because it plays strongly into the whole jealously theme Paru has going on?
I was referring more to Lifelink than you. Less specific scenario and more the whole "dude, why don't they just go to someone in authority rather than blackmailing Monmon into making an antidote?" thing.
Ah, I get it now. Well... blackmail is a spiteful, petty revenge, the kind a jealous person would like to pull off?
Unedited, A difference on the traditional Guche versus Protagnist duel. Featuring Bob.
"I Guche de Gramont, challenge you to a duel of-"
"Of DEEEEBAUCHERY!" interrupted Bob with a shout. He stood, rifle held back, pointed at the sky in the crook of his arm, his right hand pointed at Guiche."The terms are whoever can get the most girls on one night, into bed!" That hand and its finger shifted to an older student, like a rifle moving from target to target. There was a click.
"YOU! Where is the nearest den of sin and depravity!"
"Uh...ten miles that way? The town of Mulhouse has a great pub..."
"FANTASTIC! What say you, Guiche?"
"W-how dare you! I am not a not a common scoundrel, I am of noble birth! I shall not go into some common pub like a peasant! I challenge you to a rightful duel with, by clash of arms!" To his dismay his opponent had ignored him and was speaking to Katie and Montmorency.
"So, neither of you have...known Guiche?"
Katie immediately blushed, and Montmorency spat a scandalized, "How dare you..."
Bob nodded and scribbed something onto a clipboard he had brought out of nowhere. "So no. Okay, how is on, ah, cuddling and kissing?"
Montmorency and Katie before Katie murmured a,"...well he's kinda sloppy, he knows how to hold me just so..."
"Ah okay. So have you..."
"Commoner! Have you no shame! I demand you duel me right now! I shall beat you down like the dog you are!" Guiche was red with embrassment and rage, "Meet me at-"
"Ah-ah-ah! None of that sass my boy! If you beat me by fighting me in combat, there would be no doubt to your martial prowness. But what about your marital prowness? After all a REEEEL MAN is proficent in the arts of war, and love is he not?" Bob took a moment to swig from a whiskey bottle(once again out of nowhere), and continued,"After all, to be a great MAN, you have to be good at both. Being good at only one or the other only means a weakness for your pride! So what say you, Guiche? Meet me on my challenge and see if you're MAN enough for the ladies, or be forever known as an impotent coward?"
Poor Guiche didn't know what he was in for.
