Welcome to the Netherworld!

[It is difficult to define what a normal afternoon is by Netherworld standards. In the dark, torch-lit halls of the Overlord's Castle, penguin-suited prinnies totter about pretending to do work, while most other vassals make no effort at all to pretend. No fights have broken out yet, but it is questionable how long that will last with the Overlord being awake. It is just the sort of calm that comes before something unexpected happens, or someone makes it happen out of boredom.

And that is precisely when the first stranger comes through the swirling vortex of the Dimensional Gate.

It doesn't seem so unusual at first, because people use that gate on a daily basis. But more people start to show up, people who aren't demons. The Gatekeeper herself has no idea where they've come from, or how they've found their way to the Netherworld.

Unfortunately, neither do the unexpected guests.]

[Sure enough, Laharl, you'll have another demon throwing open your throne room doors with reckless abandon and great power. And he walks in without permission, marching in with a surprising amount of confidence and presence.

The man looked like a noble, maybe even a Nether Noble Vampire, not completely unlike Maderas, even. He throws his cape aside dramatically and pointed at Laharl.]

You! You are the Overlord of this Netherworld, correct?! I have a very serious grievance to file with you that needs immediate attention!

[Because Laharl is so fond of vampire nobles after Maderas.]

I'm already aware of it. I take it you're with that group of good-for-nothings milling about my castle. Do all of you think you can just barge in here like this?
arcadianvampire: (Now I'm Mad.)

[personal profile] arcadianvampire 2014-03-16 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[That just pisses him off, really.]

If you are already aware of it, why the hell haven't you done something about it?! This is a very dire issue! One with massive consequences for not just your Netherworld, but my home as well!

[And a much bolder, and more aggressive cape flourish.]

Your Prinnies are the saddest lot of worthless layabouts I have ever seen!

Who trained them?! Who was their Prinny Instructor?! They must be punished for their incompetence!
makainoou: (displeased)

This Netherworld has weathered far more serious problems than a few uninvited guests. And if yours can't even survive missing one vampire, then nothing I do here is going to save it.

[Oh, he's just going to scowl at that last demand. You are now badmouthing his right hand vassal. Only he's allowed to do that.]

Etna is perfectly capable of keeping the prinnies in line. If you have a problem with her methods, I'm sure she'd be more than happy to put you in your place when she gets back.
arcadianvampire: (...Yeah.)


[personal profile] arcadianvampire 2014-03-16 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Uninvited guests?

[Val looks utterly confused at the first remark. Yeah, he had heard about it, but...]

The Prinny issue is what I was talking about, Overlord.
arcadianvampire: (Standard Vampire Pose)

[He begins to speak more calmly.]

Your Prinnies being lazy and shirking their duties, as well as their orders from you and their Master causes serious long-term problems. If the Prinnies are shirking their responsibilities, their path to reincarnation stalls, and therefore creates an over-saturation of rotten human souls in the Netherworld, and that puts a serious drain on resources throughout the Netherworlds.

...Not only that, but not being in control of your Prinny vassals makes you look weaker than you probably are.

The more important question now is this... Etna, you speak of, a sanctioned Prinny Instructor, or is she a Master? The difference is very important for the situation.
makainoou: (you're an idiot)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-16 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[And Laharl looks about as baffled by this clarification.] only came in here to bother me about prinnies?

I've never heard of a "sanctioned Prinny Instructor," and I've got more important things to worry about than prinnies being lazy. That's their natural state.
arcadianvampire: (Neutral)

[personal profile] arcadianvampire 2014-03-16 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Valvatorez makes a thoughtful noise at his reply.]

But of course. As a sanctioned Prinny Instructor from Hades, seeing to how Prinnies do their jobs is my job. One I take very seriously. And as an expert on the matter, it may be their natural state... but it is a state that must be mercilessly beaten out of their pitiful excuses for skulls.

So if you have not heard of such a thing, then I can only assume Etna is their Master. Then your Prinnies' behavior is not her fault, clearly. Whoever taught these pathetic dregs truly did not see to their duties.

Nevertheless, something must be done about it.
makainoou: (orly)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-16 06:44 pm (UTC)(link)
It sounds to me like you're volunteering.

That's just as well. If you're going to be stuck here for the time being, then I'll need you to make yourself useful.
arcadianvampire: (Cape Flourish)

[personal profile] arcadianvampire 2014-03-16 06:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Very well! If I have your permission, I will begin rounding up Prinnies for re-education effective immediately!

[At least this one is more than happy to do some actual work around here, right?]

...And yes, I believe I may well be trapped here for an indeterminate amount of time. At least it should give me plenty of time to bring these bums into proper order.

Soon you shall have a more loyal and more effective squad of vassals. I will see to that personally.
makainoou: (smug)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-16 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yesss, vassal get.]

Good. Then we have an understanding...

...what was your name again?

[He guesses he should know his new vassal's name.]
arcadianvampire: (Proud)

[personal profile] arcadianvampire 2014-03-16 07:35 pm (UTC)(link)
How rude of me. My apologies.

My name is Valvatorez. It's a pleasure. I have heard from your vassals that you are Overlord Laharl, correct?
makainoou: (throne)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-16 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
That's right.

[If he heard it from them, does that mean his vassals are actually starting to use his correct title? That's some good news for today.]

It's good to know at least one of you lot has some manners.
