Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

PostSubject: Gabeling [Midday, Frog x Gabe]   Sat Jun 09, 2018 6:54 pm

Frog was invited to the house once more, by Gabe personally again. He was hesitant to approach, as they'd parted ways after Sele's death, yet he also wanted to talk things through with the man. There were things they both had to tell each other. Important things. Frog wasn't intent on working with Skelly to the end. He wanted more information, yet he knew that the moment said information was disclosed to him, he'd be ensnared forcefully to Skelly's side and would have to fight his way through if he wanted out. As such...

He needed outside help and outside information. The fact he was a friend with the mango man meant he held him as someone relatively important to him. He wasn't going to hesitate in meeting Gabe, therefore. He wasn't going to reject him like he did earlier. The man was flawed, very much so, yet weren't they all? Especially after their tragic defeat. They'd all lost hope at the time. How they went about claiming it again was up to them.

Gabe didn't necessarily know what he was doing, he was wondering what the right choices were after he had a bit of a falling out with Brittany and frogerio. They kind of stopped contacting each other and stayed out of each other's way, but Gabe still maintained a level of trust. If anything it was the revealing of the fact that Gabe knew who they were, and he kept it to himself all this time for the sake of keeping their secret and making sure that he was also able to interact with them as well. Gabe made the choice on his own during his slightly tipsy grandeur as he mourned Selenus's end to break the veil and made it aware to them that he too, was aware.

He didn't know what to expect with the lad coming, he wasn't even expecting him to come. But assuming that the doorbell was ringed when Frogerio showed up, Gabe would let him in and close the door shut as soon as he walked in. The room was somewhat normal, a steaming cup of coffee was on the table, pretty much untouched. "Make yourself comfortable, I made that coffee for myself but you can have it if you like. Milk, sugar, and coffee cream toffee flavored. "

Frog entered the familiar house, exchanging only a glance with Gabe as he did so. In the spur of the moment, he opted to act like a tough guy and seem untouchable, though he was probably failing at both those things. "It's okay, I don't drink coffee." He answered, sitting down on a chair if it was available. If not, he'd reluctantly take a spot at the couch if it was available. "Uhm, I mean...thanks anyways." He added, looking away with a nervous scowl.

He wasn't gonna ask what Gabe wanted from him. He'd keep silently waiting until the older man opened the conversation. He wasn't feeling all too well all of a sudden, but still...he did feel like Gabe could be trusted. he had to be trusted.

"Ok, you must be wondering about the reason why I called you here. " Gabe said this casually as he took the coffee and sat on the other side of the chair, facing Frog from the middle of the room. A few blows from the hot coffee followed before taking a small sip, he knew that he probably had a long night ahead of him.

"Listen, we got into a bit of a spat back then and I ended up saying some things and directing hints of aggression towards you. I was a bit disappointed by the way you conduct yourself as a terrorist in the past, but I realized that maybe, my approach towards us simply working together a lot better was flawed. I made mistake, and I'm sorry Frogerio. "

Frog wasn't expecting an apology of all things. He didn't really know what to expect as he was a poor judge of character and besides, the two of them had gotten into fights before, so it would've all depended on their mutual readiness to talk to each other honestly about these things. And he lost to Gabe in that regard, as he was the one to summon him here. Even if Frog had some venerable thoughts of allying up and remaining friends, he wasn't the one to arrange this meeting nor was he the one truly itching for it.

That was all Gabe, and Frog could only be grateful for the man's sudden openness.

"I did the same." He looked down at his feet, gripping his knees as he sat down. "I behaved as a shitty brat to you and everyone because I just thought I could do whatever I wanted. I never even considered us working to better ourselves. In that way I was opposite to what you were trying to do, and it lead to conflict. It's my mistake too. So, sorry too." The words were heavy on him but he could still speak them as they were true. He'd always been an honest one in regards to conveying his feelings and he could never lie about how he felt. He truly felt apologetic. "We should've all been more ready to work together. Me especially. But I know we can't change what has happened. We just have to move forward."

Well, you are the wild card, that's what it's called right? In regular card games or heck, even in uno. That one card that can change to be whatever it wishes at a moments notice, with the amount of power only limited to the person's actual capabilities, I can see why the notion of doing whatever you desire would come easily to you. But you see, that only holds you to higher standards, with people's expectations of what you could and should do...a lot higher than everyone else. They expect more, they might even rely on you more than others. All of that pressure on your shoulders, what do you think of it?

Gabe then crossed his legs as he sat back a little more.

"What do think of that gift of yours while using it to kill for skelker? Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not here to judge. You made your choice with that group, and I don't think we can change each other's minds from the moment that invidia probably kicking the bucket by your hands. But i truly believe that there is always a better alternative, and that was also one of the reasons why the gap between us widened..."

Taking in a deep breath, Gabe picked up his coffee mug once more as he blew on it a few times.

"What is considered to you as moving forward? We are so broken apart after your group developed it's first taste of drawing blood. What can we do now? I'm pretty sure Brittany hates me as well, haven't seen her since the argument. "

Frog frowned, as it almost felt like Gabe was lecturing him all of a sudden, despite the guy saying he wasn't gonna judge. It was clear he was judging, or at least had been judging them at some point. His assumptions were flawed, though, as Frog certainly wasn't going to use his power for Skelter's sake, even if the two of them happened to be working together momentarily.

"Correction, I joined Skelter because I wanted to see how he wanted to use the demons to fight the government. However, I've not yet seen even a sliver of demon manipulation of any sort, aside from, well, when he threw Invidia over to a bunch of demons to feast on, but I don't count that." He looked Gabe straight in the eyes. "I do not wish to exist under Skelter. I want to use him and I want him to perish. He's not allowed me to use him yet though. He's probably suspicious of us and whatnot so he wants to see how far we're willing to go before he can show us his demon plan or whatever. I'll stay there until then. And after that...I'll see how far I'll have fallen. My worry is Brit. She doesn't like how Skelter operates either. I'm sure she doesn't hate you though, so try and get in touch if you want."

Back on track though, Gabe, in his lecturing, brought up a good argument. "I never thought how hard it'd be to have people relying on me." Frog looked away and scratched his chin. "I guess that was silly of me. People will have to rely on me anyways, I guess, but people's expectations are annoying. You've met with the manga business so you should know how it is when someone's limiting your creativity. That's what people relying on me means to me-limitations to how I can act. So you're right, I was completely wrong."

"Controlling demons has the same underlying philosophy under how the government controls humans. As much as I would want to declare them as dangerous beings, their capacity to think puts into question if we should be given the right to rule over them in such a way. The only silver lining that I saw from demon cooperation was on three occasions. The first one was when my life was saved by that one punch frost, something i'll never forget for the rest of my life. It's the only reason why I entertain the idea and don't become too cold to it. The second was when we met larsinny. He has a just cause, the government has done some deplorable things and taken advantage of us these past few years. Wanting those things to stop is something worth fighting for. "

Gabe then thought of the first choice.

"The third was when Brittany's girl talk managed to persuade a demon to stand down and even gave us something at the end of it. It opened the floor to reason, seeing those kinds of things opens the floor to reason, skelkers intent for them doesn't seem genuine."


It was an idealistic opinion, but Gabe held onto it as his own.

"Alright, it's not about who is right or wrong anymore. It's what we do now that matters. We are going to hit superbia soon, but..... i'm not sure how well we will fare. If we fail again, the playhouse might diminish with other members running to skelker with a false sense of security and the promises of victory. It's hard to keep everyone together these days..."

"See, but the demons are easily swayed, right? They're like, very basic if anything sapient, very one dimensional, which makes them easily exploitable. It's just how nature goes." Frog explained his position on the matter. The demons were to be used but also not to be abused. That's how they were made for them. "Anyways, I don't disagree with your statements. No one would after seeing them in action. They're capable of stuff that mimics human behaviour. That or humans mimic demon behavior, whichever came first. We still murder a bunch of them anyways. I don't really see why that is any better than controlling them? The little fairy Brit talked to turned into those shards. She vanished because her use expired." It was a very objectifiable view of the demons, one Frog wasn't proud of as making public in this case. However, Gabe had to be told some semblance of the truth. After all, Frog came without hostile intentions.

"I hope you can win. We'll keep doing our thing as you do yours. But I can't promise anything if you lose. I also cannot directly support you. How I can see us supporting one another is by trading information, if you would be willing. I don't do this for some justice, I do this to show everyone in the wrong that they are wrong, and to show them just how weak they are. My goal hasn't changed when I switched sides. I don't even consider myself as switching sides, so I won't betray you."

Froggerio did have a point as to how demons were exploitable. It was also unexplainable how the little demon fairy disappeared into shards of some kind after it served its purpose for the party or the encounter at hand. There were a lot of things that Gabe didn't know too much about the demon race and the relationship they are supposed to share with people that have the same powers that Gabe does.

"Sharing information huh? Well, there isn't a whole lot to say, the contact we received about superbia was a reporter of some kind. We realized that Superbia was in charge of whitewashing basically all of the media that came about in regards to the government in a negative light. Those stories never get reported, the people who are brave enough to even talk about it disappear without a trace. If we want the public sentiment on our side, she has to go. But whatever the case may be, would a district leader just regain their powers after defeat? These are things that we don't know, the nonlethal cleanup by choosing to take the playhouse approach. I don't want to make a mistake and allow this to be counterproductive. "

Thinking a bit as he took a sip of his coffee, Gabe sighed.

"You sure you're going to be ok doing this double agent business? I don't want to pressure you into anything you think you can't handle, Skelker is a dangerous man. Even if you are the wildcard, I wouldn't put anything above a man who's been doing this longer than us."

Frog raised his eyebrows at the mention of a reporter. It was probably the Reporter herself, his mind was already set on affirming that truth. She was the mighties of the reporters, willing to fight for the truth for the truth itself even in this city such as Endymion. Aaaaaaaaand, she was his other source of information. She was invaluable to him and was now just as invaluable to the Playhouse as well. He wondered how it'd go had he remained fully aligned with the Playhouse... "I see, so you guys are gonna turn the public's trust against the District Head again and attack em. And the Reporter lady, I see she's being open even to Terrorists, so that's good to hear. I've not much information on Skelter right now that I could share. I know he has two sidekicks who are pretty strong and have assisted us in the battle against Invidia. However, I could not personally gouge Skelter's own strength yet. However, his Persona, Nimrod, appears to be a giant of great power. Ugh, he basically kept all the demons from interfering in our fight with Invidia by himself. Why does a man like that even need assistance from us?"

Anyways, Gabe's warning once against stroke Frog's heart. He wasn't sure if he was ok doing this, but this was his plan...and his initiative. "W-well I wouldn't be a Pee-Tee if I weren't a scheming back-stabber. Besides, Skelter doesn't deserve me, so I wouldn't be able to rest easy unless I do whatever I can to work against him and for him at the same time. I will have to discuss this with Brit too when I have the time. I don't want to drag her into any more danger, but I think she's fucked enough just being in Skelter's team anyways. Me too. So I haven't got much to lose by defying him."

"A man with the power of his persona being able to even hold demons at bay and assisting the district leader that seemingly has control of the area. To be completely honest, his potential rivals that of a district leader, I wouldn't be surprised if every territory that's claimed is governed and run by a demon or lackey of his choosing. As for the kind of strength that he has in relation to needing the help of others, just look at how we used to be. We all had our strengths and weaknesses, bringing about people with a different variety in terms of social skills and persona skills increase the chances of success and victory. Most of all, the strongest of us all seemingly fell in his lap....."

Looking to Frog, Gabe would give him a smile.

"I was talking about you, you have the most potential for this out of everyone, which would make you more valuable in Skelker's eyes. But what skelker is to his original team is what you could have been for us arguably. In the off chance that something happens to me, I was hoping you could return and help the playhouse. I wouldn't allow skelker to sacrifice you for his cause, just think of your parents whenever he talks. No need to put them through such an obscure way of life with demons running amok. "

However, Gabe would then give Frog a serious look.

"It's apparent to both of us that Brittany is your greatest ally, don't make it apparent to skelker and have it serve as your Achilles heel. Like I said, the worth of your talent is far greater than ours, so using her to get to you if you refused on something isn't out of the ordinary."

Damn Gabe was right. In everything. And Frog kinda hated it, but was also oddly grateful for the other's insight, as he lacked it himself. "Shit I really gotta watch out not to get too touchy with PGB when Skelter or his lackeys are watching, but...it might be too late...I hope not but still..." He shook his head. "I don't think I can return to the Playhouse without Brit and I also can't return to the Playhouse before I've destroyed Skelter. So I can't promise you I can replace if you di- something happens to you." He sighed, sitting back in his chair. Gabe was still asking so much that he just couldn't do but was going to keep bothering him.

"Don't piss me off though, I tell ya I didn't fall into his lap. I am just looking at what he can do. If anything, I don't feel like I'm a part of Skelter's group or the Playhouse group. But I also can't just ignore either of them. So I'm both. That's kinda the best way cause I know you guys won't kill me because Larsinny is just a goat or whatever, and I can spy on Skelter and help you help me eliminate him. The only downside is Skelter might kill him but whatever." Frog snickered, putting on a bravado that wasn't entirely truthful to how he was feeling inside. "But thank you, really. I know I've been a shithead until now but I feel like I understand you better after this talk and I hope we both understand each others' goals better too. Don't think of me as someone who's betrayed you, please. I don't actually wanna make enemies with the people I care about...despite how I act, eheheeh..."

"Well, if that's the case, always measure up to what's important in front of you. From what I can see, Brittany is important to you, it was never a choice to abandon her and leave her with skelker. Whatever it is that you want to do, make sure you pursue it wholeheartedly without any sort of change of heart. You spoke of killing skelker before, I have my reservations about it being the only way to stop him. But Gerio, listen to me, once you take a life, it's something that you'll have to live with.  Don't speak of eliminating lightly, they are still human after all.  But could it be that humanity can be even worse than the demons we fight?"

Gabe shrugged.

"Nevertheless, I can't see why you don't feel like you are apart of the playhouse.  Is it because you didn't feel welcomed enough? I guess you didn't know that some of your friends worked with you at night while they hung out with you during the day,  but an argument isn't enough to disregard out history with each other. Even now, I see you as an irreplaceable comrade, you and the others will always have a place to return to if something goes wrong. You aren't fighting this alone, and don't feel like you can't ask me for help. "

"Yeah I figured..." Frog looked down and gotten quiet when Gabe mentioned taking a life. Outside acknowledgement only made the issue more exacerbated than it already was... "Brit was really slumped when the whole Invidia thing happened. I can sorta get her and I feel like I'm lying to myself when I say it wasn't us that killed the guy, but Skelter, you get me? It's tough but destroying Skelter might just mean letting him self-destruct or something. What did you mean when you said you think there might be other ways to get rid of him?" He asked back, since he didn't really see the options. Setting him up to get captured by the government wouldn't work cause he could just sell them out then, so what else could he do? Rob him of authority? But how?

"Thanks, Gabe, I won't hesitate to ask you if I need anything. It's just that I felt things weren't working out as they should...but it's the same now that I'm with Skelter. Nothing seems to really work out." He sighed, obviously feeling down from the conversation. "Would you want to see Brit too, maybe? I think I should let her know I don't plan on following through with everything Skelter does, so maybe we can all talk together another time?"
