    Even IT doesn't know whose reincarnation we are. Wonder if gaining this knowledge would put us in power over it?

    Also why the Hatred lost it's former goal and just wants to 'conform' to it's hosts desires?

    Is it because that with strange eons even death may die?

    Here you go, let me know if I missed anyone:
    Elfberserker A
    Absinthe B
    Ganymede A
    Lambchop19 B
    Nevill A
    Akkudakku B
    Kz3r0 B
    Rex Feral A
    asxetos B
    Kipeci B
    Baltika9 A
    Jester B

    XenomorphII B
    Grimgravy B
    The Brazilian Slaughter A
    Tigranes B
    Tribute B

    A- 8

    I counted all the unflopped C2's as B votes since they were made before treave, ah, altered the C vote.

    I think they should be counted as B unless they specifically state they want treave's C2 and not mine. I just have a hard time believing many would knowingly pick treave's troll suicide option.

    All of them were made before treave added asxetos' "Fuck the inlaws" idea.

    Honestly, all I want is for Jing not to be completely oblivious to how important this decision is for Qilin, and make some effort to mitigate the damage to her self-confidence this will inevitably result in. I don't care for political repercussions of the choices nearly as much as for keeping our party together and in high spirits. I don't have a preference here.

    Do we even know what Qilin wants?

    I think her immediate desire was "get the hell out of here", but once Jing was trapped here too she couldn't.

    I am pretty sure we know exactly what she wants, despite what she tells us she wants. Really, I thought that since we have a tendency to never tell anyone how we truly feel, we would eventually pick up an ability to read between the lines.

    She wants to be the first girl in our heart. Any woman would want that, even Cao'er. It's just that Cao'er can easily get over it as long as she gets to be with us at all, while Qilin can't, as we have already seen.

    Her refusing a marriage is one thing, but if Jing refuses it, and on a basis he can't marry her before he marries the other girl to boot, it will hurt her. Deeply.

    Basically, this:
    Since the Fire Cult is tied with us and can't get away from us until we are dead, they will accept our actions, grudgingly or not. And Yunzi knew we had two girls already when she decided to come along. However, the same can not be said about Qilin and her faction, which affects my decision somewhat.

    Still, a double marriage is the most fair way to solve the conundrum (if at all possible), even if not everyone will be pleased with it. We said that we will treat all of our girls equally, and we better act on it.

    Alright, B wins then. Poor Qilin, being deemed not worth marrying on her own merits. :M

    Hopefully she understands. We need to do something romantic for her asap.

    Can't we at the very least come up with a solid date for all the parties involved? We look like an untrustworthy debtor who promises he'll settle it tomorrow for months.

    I guess there is no avoiding the fact that we just threw the girl under a bus for the sake of politics. Still, I hope it does not change Jing's feelings towards her and he lets her know that. A small consolation, but it helps to know that the fault does not lie with her.

    We have to make up for this, and not by taking the easy way out like we did at the inn.

    :(

    Obviously there is only one solution to the problem: declare a deathmatch tournament for the #1 waifu spot, Jean-Claude Van Damme style:[​IMG]

    *sigh* I hope Qilin doesn't leave us or die trying to "prove" herself.

    A solid date is the day Yunzi comes of age. Done deal?

    It does not work that way.

    Either Yunzi thrashes Qilin effortlessly on the ring. Or she does not make it to the competition at all. The girls specialize in areas too different for a proper deathmatch.

    No, it has to be a cooking contest. They are both inept, so at least the starting conditions are equal.

    If we have to be the judge of their cooking WE might not make it.

    Yunzi is the straight-up, honorable and extremely physically talented fighter. The JCVD.

    Qilin us the wily, do-anything-to-win opportunist. In movie terms, Chong Li.

    She also specializes in poisons and traps, and leaves the fighting to the meatshields.

    We've seen them both at the tournament, we know how it played out.

    This is wuxia. There are three things to do here: to fight, to drink, and to make sweet love.
    Guess what Qilin is better at.

    Well, I suppose if there was a drinking contest between her and anyone not of the Wudu Cult, she would be the last one standing.

    So... maybe? :lol:
