    Agreed. Which is why I want to have some fun and thrust into the warm darkness of corruption.

    Its cliche and boring, which is the opposite of fun to me, but to each his own.

    Baltika9 If it wasn't cliche, why is everyone voting for it? I'm like the only vote B along with Grim, perhaps we're the chads that want to go off the beaten path while you plebs just want another boring YA novel where we're super speshul 'n shi [​IMG]

    Bro, I was going for a string of messages exchanging innuendos. You failed me bro. Don't know if I'm in the mood for Virgin vs Chad posting, tho. Meme game isn't spicy enough to get me excited.

    I'm not opposed to A, since C carries the risks listed earlier in the discussion. But I do want to (a) get to know Uridimmu better and (b) save Liz's life so that we can join with Tlalli on time and not leave Sophie. I like Uridimmu, he's got that je ne sais quoi.

    Not really sure on that one, but I'll go B > A. I don't really trust the doggo and what's it going to cost us, it feels like devour soul all over again. And I'd prefer if we were consistent in our choices regarding Uridimmu, either all-in or not at all

    I disagree with this approach to Uridimmu in general. While I understand the caution around him due to the fact that we don't understand the nice puppy (no one does :(), I don't think that ignoring him is the way to go and, moving forward, we should strive to learn more about him.

    All in all, I agree with ChumBucket's sentiment:
    We were made for one another.

    If we were made for one another than the demon can sit by the way side while we go through our hoe phase and experiment a bit.

    Mmm...

    I want to know more about him. The guy is pretty straightforward. With him generally above lying to our face, I wouldn't be against a classic deal where we both get something. It's clear we are stuck with him for a while, and that he is one of our claims to power; power that we may need sooner rather than later.

    I would never go all-in on Uridimmu (and it is too late for that anyway), but I'd consider his offers on a case by case basis.

    I don't think ignoring him will be possible, since we seem to have a fragment of him in our head that can talk to us whenever he wants

    He's just playing hard to get pet. There are no bad dogs, only bad owners. Someone hurt him in the past, and it's up to Cloud and Rain to fix it.

    By the way, I'm calling bragging rights if it turns out that redeeming Uridimmu with the Power of Love was indeed the answer all along.

    Not surprising. A very common theme of "sacred children" is that they remain ignorant of their power unless they are about to fulfill their destiny. That or they literally have a shell personality that will conceal them from their enemies.

    We are not special, Rain is. We just happen to be in the right place at the wrong time. If you don't want to deal with boring YA BS or some godling comming to smash our face in, ditch Rain, and anyone connected to her. As suffering and conflict will be drawn to her and those around her. Or just stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist like some cool edgelord.

    The easier explanation is that it wasn't Rain in the dream. I mean, it's common sense? She was sleeping five levels away from us, and there is nothing to suggest she has dreamwalking or something.

    The pendant could have reacted to our thoughts of her and took shape of her master in the dream. The one we saw looked older, so it probably was not a specific person, but some kind of collective figure (Rain's ancestral line?), combined into a form familiar to us.

    I agree, I am just spitballing... though your KISS explanation is far more likely.

    Um, mate? Primordial demon?

    His one quality that protects him from an accusation of Rain's attempted murder thrown in his face is that he can not do otherwise. Catch-22 is that if he has free will enough to be "redeemed" then he has enough of it to be held responsible for all that he has done.

    So we're passing up this fabulous deal given to us by Uridimmu to save one of our childhood friends from a terminal illness and keep our Scooby Gang together? Guys, every group of young detectives needs a dog and we have a candidate with a very impressive resume offering to sign on.

    Doo eet, codex.

    Edit:
    ...it would make for a nice story: two children convince the personification of fear and hatred that the world isn't unlovable and is worth fighting for.

    I was having fun with that bit, man.

    Rofl. Imagine being called an edgelord for wanting to sit in our town and raise our kid. Again, there's a difference than having it hoisted on upon us, and actively running headfirst into a deal with a fucking demon because...reasons? Trash opinions.

    Only in the sense that Sekhenenun was an eldritch horror who we turned into our best friend. Yeah, the Sekhenun analogy works.

    So we need to cut off Uridummu's head and keep it in a jar until he reforms into our bestest friend?

    We already have a fragment of him with us. It's in our leg, not in a jar, but that just makes us brothers.

    Join us in voting C, brother. You can blame me if it goes wrong.
