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.]

[There was no point in asking the vassals what is going on, odds are they wouldn't know anyway. The only straight answer Emizel might get is from the Overlord himself...whoever that is. Hopefully it's not gonna be some huge muscular guy or else this might be problematic.]

[Then again what was he thinking, getting into a fight with any Overlord by himself would be insane. Oh man, this better work...]

[This big door looks important enough. This had to be the Overlord's room, or somewhere he might be. Time to take a deep breath, and find out who's even running this place.]

[Yes, it is a truly intimidating sight that awaits him beyond that door. Some of the biggest and most powerful demons within the castle and arguably the whole Netherworld...

...and then there's this scrawny kid on the throne. C'mon, he's pretty intimidating-looking, too, right? He totally has muscles. Look how forcefully he button-mashes.]

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
[A..kid? But he's no older than Emizel was. No, this can't be right at all.]

Hey, where is the Overlord?
makainoou: (wtf)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
Huh?

[Laharl glances over at the other demon and actually decides to press pause. He assumes, of course, that this is some yokel who's too dumb to recognize his own Overlord, not that he's from another Netherworld entirely.

What's he doing just wandering in here anyway? He really needs to talk to Etna about security and actually having some.]


You need to get your eyes checked, kid. You're looking at him.
trademark_skull: (Objection!)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
You? [Okay, this really, really can't be right. Then again..Emizel is going to be President soon, so maybe it wasn't that strange. He recomposed and stepped up then.]

If you really are the Overlord, then what's your big idea bringing us here!?
makainoou: (you're an idiot)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
What are you talking about? You're the one that just waltzed into my throne room, and I don't see any "us."
trademark_skull: (Yeano)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
They're probably still asking the Gatekeeper I think, there was quite a crowd before I left.

Either way, you better do something.
makainoou: (wtf)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Crowd?

[Okay, he's starting to take this a little more seriously. Just a bit. He still hasn't put down the game controller.]

You mean there's a whole bunch of you bumpkins milling around my castle?
trademark_skull: (Denial)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
I didn't count, but there definitely seems to be more.

[And, he is not a bumpkin :|]
makainoou: (my work here is done)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Only a bumpkin would not recognize his Overlord's greatness.

aka Laharl still doesn't know they're all from other worlds.]


Well, go tell them all to get lost and go home. I didn't summon any of you, and this isn't some kind of tourist attraction.
trademark_skull: (Not cute!)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 03:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Twitches.]

If I could go home, I wouldn't be here telling you about it!
makainoou: (I knew that)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
What, do you need someone to hold your hand and show you out the gate? You're lucky I'm giving you the opportunity to just leave.
trademark_skull: (Does not want)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 04:08 am (UTC)(link)
I know how to use them. Your gate isn't working.
makainoou: (you're an idiot)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
So how did you all get here if it isn't working?
makainoou: (my work here is done)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Look, if the gate's actually not working right, I'll have her take a look at it, but it's not like anyone's keeping you here. You wanna get home that badly, then hoof it.
trademark_skull: (Sworn my duties)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Honestly he's a little bit afraid of where he was right now entirely. But let's hold thought for now.]

Do you have any idea how long that will take?
makainoou: (buh)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
Depends on how fast you tire out.

Though you do look like you wouldn't last that long.
trademark_skull: (This is all wrong)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Glaaaaare Actually he's probably right.]

Look if you don't do something soon, you're gonna have others at your door too.
makainoou: (you're kidding me)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 04:47 am (UTC)(link)
[Your persistence is annoying.]

If you don't start walking soon, I might have to send you home in pieces.
trademark_skull: (Serious Business)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Well I know who to blame for that.]

[...Maaaaybe getting a little intimidated though. Still refuses to back down, but doesn't really want to fight either.]
makainoou: (orly)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-14 02:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Or maybe you'd prefer it that way.

[He's putting aside the controller now. Yes, be intimidated. He is intimidating!]
trademark_skull: (Hell hath no tsun)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-14 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
[Super intimidating! Wait, no. Maybe. Not sure anymore.]

No way! [Going home is just that important, alright?]
makainoou: (I knew that)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-03-15 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Laharl stands up and folds his arms, because surely that will help. He's so... tall.]

You're really trying my patience, brat. I told you to leave.
trademark_skull: (Serious Business)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-03-15 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[I think those antennae might give you a few inch advantage. Good enough.]

Not until you do something. [Hard to sound like a threat when he was backing down slightly, still not giving up quite yet though.]

What kind of Overlord are you?

[Unless he does go back to his original assumption and this kid really wasn't the Overlord at all.]
