    I want to vote B, but I'm powerfully attracted to the r00fles of C. I'll just have to see whichever one fares better againt the A block, I guess.

    Oh, God, yes. C.

    I must honor my duty to the lulz brigade this time.

    I'm torn between B and C. B would reveal our Kuanglang Step while C would reveal our claws (right?). Strictly speaking B would reveal less about us - there is no way for anyone to recognise our heavily modified qinggong technique, but somebody might recognise our main combat technique and realise we are the Maniac’s apprentice. With A we would probably lose now (we don't have the necessary endurance to outlast her), and I just don't want to lose at this point, even if it means revealing more info about us.

    But what the hell - C just sounds so lulzy I can't resist, even if there is a chance it could get us kicked out of the competition (just because it is not explicitly forbidden doesn't mean the judges would find it as funny as we would, and they get the last word).

    C > B for now.

    edit: Make that B > C. We have enough enemies as it is, no need to make more of her, her sister and her entire sect if we can help it. While C sounds fun, B lets us win without making us look like a jerk.

    The dizziness is alarming. Trying to outlast her might very well backfire. C is amusing and entirely within character of Jing. Remember, we want to win this tournament, but that isn't our primary goal. However, we will certainly be dishonouring the sect by disrobing one of their best students. I'd like to keep the list of enemies short, so I'll be wanting

    B

    All right, now to the actual reasoning.

    Bai Jiutian is certainly suspicious of us, since he questioned the young monk to the point that the latter almost spilt what he had sworn to keep a secret. This was a dick move by him, and it calls for a dick move of our own.

    C would not win us a tournament if we were up against an adult. An experienced warrior does not concern himself - or herself - with such matters. They would fight stark naked, if the situation called for it. It would be silly to lose your life because of your top falling off in an actual combat, in fact, they might just as well make the best out of it and use it as a distraction to gain an advantage over their enemies.

    But this is a tournament for youths. At the end of the day, Nie Mudan is just a young girl, and - how should I put this? - too proper even for her age. The worst taunt that she could muster was to call us a rogue who hides our face? Did she think she would get a rise out of us with just that? Apparently, she had a strict upbringing and a somewhat rigid view as to what is considered decorous and seemly. There is just no better target for our tactics. It should render her completely helpless.

    Besides, the girl really has to watch her tongue. Doubting our manliness and challenging us to prove it? What would be a better retort to that than to have her demonstrate her own womanly charms before the eyes of a full stadium? Jing wouldn't be Jing if he allowed such a perfect irony go to waste.

    The jury and the sects are not our friends here. It is obvious they disapprove of some out-of-nowhere fighter who keeps kicking the crap out of their best disciples. But the crowd loves us. We are a dark horse, a hot topic, a spice in a dish that had become somewhat stale. We provide the best entertainment, the kind of which they haven't seen in years.

    If we win the sympathies of the crowd, then even if a fact that we are Zhang Jue's disciple comes to light, nobody will dare to as much as point a finger at us. People will think they are just jealous, and nobody would believe that such a charming and an easygoing fellow who can set people laughing is some kind of a creepy assassin. The crowd would be the only one to vouch for us when nobody else would. We are their idol, and we should not disappoint them.

    All of this reinforces my desire to go C.

    Oh, I dare them not to admit our win. They will only discredit their name in front of the people. The same people who would accept our victory unanimously because they'd love to watch this kind of thing more often in future tournaments.

    I think A is too risky here, since we have an average endurance of 5 and our buzzing head may cause us trouble.
    I dont really mind exposing the Kuanglang Step. Who knows, the Ashina might be watching and come to us on his own.

    B > C for me, in order not to risk A, but i may flop to C > B if there are good arguements that we can win and have some lulz in the process.

    Do you need proof that we can pull off the plan with the sash, or that we can win after that? Because from where I am standing, if we manage to strip her, our victory is assured. She won't be able to put up a remotedly decent fight after being humiliated like that.

    Lets the show begin here goes the league of Draven!

    I believe that B or C are winnig options. A is somewhat riskier. If i am correct we didn't use any powerful tech in this tournament so our performance so far should please Zhang.


    Dmn if we will continue to ridicule this tournament and get speech about honor of non main school participants its going be interesting.

    Treave does going with C will be accompanied by pig sounds? This arc need laud Qui in my humble oppinion!

    I'm going for B on this one; even though C is very, very lulzy, I'm not sure it's such a good idea: for one, we're underestimating the discipline of a sectarian here, she may have the self-control to go on fighting, better yet, she may be wearing underwear; on the other hand, this will probably piss her completely off and make her fight even harder and faster. Our head is already buzzing worse than after a hard night of drinking, one more push from her and we're done. We have to win this now, and the only option that allows us to finish this here and now is B, hence why I believe it is the best option of the three. Then, we're also feeling dizzy, so with her speed, she can hold us at bay while we grope for her clothing.
    Also, if Lantu or Yunzi are really here, they will definitely recognize what it is we're using and hopefully come a-knocking sometime soon.

    Really? Because if we're talking animu here, we'll only succeed in unleashing her feminine wrath with that move and lose,

    :lol:
    This deserves a separate mention. MAJESTIC! I just wonder what this conversation would have been like if we came in as Zhang? A peek into the alternate reality, please, treave.

    When his opponent is not thinking clearly, Jing triumphs. This was the case in Songfeng, when we tempted Rong Jr to drop his Huashan technique, this happened to Yiling, when we lured her in with a seemingly clumsy display while she was desperate to win. And here we, too, will prevail.

    It is a trolling move, and Jing excels at it by now.

    But C specifically isn't about the strength.

    Or to our harem. You'll never know with these love/hate relationships. It is a perfect occasion to get to know each other better.

    I just realized, C has the potential to drive a bigger rift between us and Cao'er. Anything for that, I may just flop.
    :troll:
    Or it may drive her that much closer to the edge out of jealousy.

    B-but she agreed to share!

    And if we tell her that Mudan would be our forth wife, and Cao'er our third, it would still be within the realms of acceptable for her. I say our bond is stronger than that!

    We're leching in everyone but her, of course it will make her jealous. Brings us that much closer to the "your harem has been slaughtered by a mysterious assassin with and needles, all their children killed in the womb" event.

    Pah. She'll just make them look plain like Xiaoxiang with her acupuncture technique.
    Which is why we need Qilin around, too.

    You attribute too much bloodlust to a poor girl that had never killed so much as a chicken before.

    Oh, and...
    We need to fix this ASAP.

    Mark my words, Cao'er will be the one to finally castrate us.

    I daresay it's all the nuns have been teaching her, and she is a fast learner.

    Which is why we need to make a move on her sister, too. Cao'er wouldn't want to deny Yifang the only joy in her otherwise pure and stale life, would she?

    Exactly, let's not put the cart before the horse. Besides, we'll first have to convince Yunzi to go along with it, which will be no mean feat. She's a very territorial girl.
    Of course her grandmother taught her that. As well as pesky ideas about monogamy and self-respect. Mark my words, she be crazy. Crazier than Zhang, he at least doesn't go all "Uhihihi" when he kills people.
