WARNING: IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH OR WEAK HEART, TURN BACK NOW.
China: *finishes tea, stands and tries to find Yori*
Yori: *nowhere to be found*
China: *worried look* Where is he, aru...?
China: *goes back to kitchen looking worried*
Japan: *There, licking salt off his hand*
China: Kiku, have you seen your brother, aru? I can't find him...
Japan: .. I no idea.. *still in THAT outfit*
China: ...When you last see him?
Zero: *rushes into the kitchen* GUYS GUYS GUYS
China: *turns* Have you seen Yori, aru?
Zero: That's what I came to tell you about! Just follow me and look at this security camera footage!
China: O: *follows*
Japan: .. o.O *Follows*
Japan: *DAT ASS for whoever is behind him*
Indigo: *raises an eyebrow at Japan, had walked past him...or her?*
Indigo: *rolls his eyes, muttering under his breath about crossdressers before going back to his device*
Zero: *plays the recording once everyone is there*
Yori: *on the monitor, standing in the portal room* ...Dey probabry not even notice I gone.... *seems kind of sad as he enters one of the portals and disappears from view*
China: We need to go find him, aru! He could be anywhere! He could be lost or in danger, or.... *worried babbling plz*
Zero: I'll see about getting someone in the SA to track him
China: I'm in the SA, aru! He's my son! I have to help!
Zero: Last I heard you're on maternity leave!
Zero: Calm down, please.
China: But... but...
Yori: *kiku could recognize the portal as one to Taika*
China: *tries to calm down but still panicky*
England: Yao...he's right. Try and calm down *is worried as well*
China: ...Shi, aru. *very worried still*
Japan: O.o It rook rike portar to Taika..
Zero: ...that would be this world's version of Japan.
China: *quiet* What should I do then, aru? Sit around and wait for him to turn up?
Zero: we will use the trackers. We at least have some seamblance of where he is though.
China: ...I can't just... do nothing, aru...
Zero: if it helps, we will keep you in direct contact if we have to search manually
China: ...Okay. *very quiet*
Zero: *telepathically alerts some of the higher ups*
???1: Now, you sure the re-education process didn't work?
???2: I'm sure, it seems these nation dudes can't be mind-controlled...
???1: Damn...ah well, soak them in the cleansing water, and put them somewhere where the Fat Knights will find them...with any luck, they'll assume they're converted to our cause, and Spagonia will have no choice but to follow suit.
???2: *mutters* The Stick Assassins are smarter than that, asshat...
???1: What was that?
???2: Nothing, nothing!
???1: Ugh, whatever...just cleanse them and toss them in a cell.
???2: Yes, sir. *rolls his eyes once he's out of ???1's sight* Fucking sticks..."Oh, if you join us, you'll get everything you want!" Bullshit. All I get is shit from everyone else. Man, I'd love to have a Ranch Dog right about now...
Yori: *struggling somewhere in that same base where Romano and Feli got taken*
???2: *starts pressing buttons* The damn "food substitute" we get smells, looks, and tastes like they just took whatever was in the dumpsters outside and cooked it.
Romano: --?! ... @.@
???2: And I can't even show my face around my girlfriend anymore...she's probably hooked up with someone who had some sense not to go into this Temple-damned line of work...if you can call it that...
N. Italy: @.@ Fratello?
*the rest of ???2's mutterings is cut off as the stick goo envelopes them, and they eventually find themselves in a jail cell, looking like skeletons with the skin still on them*
Yori: *trying to escape, constantly mumbling japanese swears*
???1: *smacks Yori's jail cell* Shut up, or no dietism sustenance for you.
N. Italy: o.o Japan? HEY! JAPAN! *notices surroundings* GERMANY GERMANY! HELP! HELP! HELP! HEL!-
???1: *smacks Feli's jail cell* You too!
Yori: FAHCK YUU!
N. Italy: *whimpers*
???1: *to Yori* Ok, that's it, no food for you! Check back one year!
Yori: *insert creative japanese insult*
N. Italy: *looks over to Romano* E 'cosė freddo ....
???1: Oh, sorry, did I say 1 year! I MEANT 10!
Romano: *Holding onto his brother* ... W-who the fuck are-a you assholes?
???1: *looks over at Romano* We're your new bosses. Dietism, the one true way of life on Mobius, and soon, every universe in existance. We shun all "food" because all it does is make you a fatass, which we will not tolerate once our reign has extended to every reality imaginable. If you sit there and cooperate, I might consider asking our leader Eggman about letting you eat our sustenance twice a month instead of only once.
N. Italy: Romano.... Ho paura ... non mi piace questo posto .... ho tanta fame .... fammi uscire di qui ...
???1: *smacks the cell again* SPEAK ENGLISH, FATASS!
N. Italy: *shakes out of fear* *lol too distressed to speak English*
Se-Mi: *running a scan* FUCK!
???1: ...All of you get no sustenance for 100 years for pissing me off. I'm going to go get the night watch over here.
Se-Mi: *multilingual stream of explicitives* *RUNS to find Japan, England, Erde, China, or Renegade*
Renegade: *is on vacation, remember?*
Yori: *insert string of japanese that would make Kiku blush with shame*
N. Italy: Nessun alimento?
China: *sees Se-Mi* What the matter, aru?!
Se-Mi: Bad news! Yori's been kidnapped!
China: BY WHO, ARU?!
Se-Mi: Those damned sticks....
Se-Mi: they got Feli and Romano too!
China: ...I'M GOING, ARU!
???2: *comes in, cleaning his ear* >.o I really hate that dude... *looks over at the three of them and sighs* Great, now I'm gonna get bitched at because of these damn sticks...
Se-Mi: oh what a bad time for my boss to go-
Renegade?: ...follow me. All of you.
China: *follows, running*
Renegade?: *leads them to "his" office*
Romano: ... *Would protest, but is just too scared to, clings to his brother in tears*
N. Italy: ...*tearing up as well from both hunger pangs and fear*
Japan: AH FAHCK!
Renegade?: *opens door, then summons Germany*
Germany: *manages to land on feet* Has anyvhone seen Romano?
???2: *sits on the floor by the cell, leaning on the wall, holding his stomach* Y'know...sometimes I wish the Stick Assassins would just hurry up and get here...that way I can get out of this Temple-forsaken place...or die...although really, death's better than this hellhole.
China: *glances at him and continues pacing* I'M NOT WAITING! I SAW THAT SIMULATION, ARU! They could be doing anything to him!
Indigo: *is in the office, trying to find stick HQ locations in the Spagonian nation*
N. Italy: Non lasciarmi, fratello ..
Yori: *still tries to escape, glaring at everyone with anrgy red eyes*
Renegade?: Unfortunately you can't go due to your pregnancy. However you can help.
China: Anything, aru!
Yori: *spots ???2* If yuu truery berieve dat why yuu no commit harakiri!
???2: *looks over at Yori* Harakiri? Huh?
Yori: Traditionar Japanese rituar suicide technique to die wit honor! Srit open stomach!
Renegade?: They'll need food and lots of it when they get back. Maybe you can cook for them?
Se-Mi: *gives Indigo the tracker* Get more info on this HQ.
Germany: VHAT!? ROMANO'S BEEN KIDNAPPED!?
Germany: *slams hands on desk* Let me be part of zhis mission. I don't care VHAT zhe cost.
China: ...I CAN'T JUST COOK, ARU! *starts to tear up* They could be... Anything could be...
???2: You mean kill myself...? I've tried, Temple knows I've tried...but this is a maximum-security headquarters...even I need a good reason to even be in any rooms that might have sharp objects, and I'm one of the higher-ranking sticks here...
Reza: *knocks on office door*
Renegade?: Come in.
Se-Mi: What they'll need most upon rescue is food.
Reza: *walks in* I have a pro-SA song that needs re-what's going on?
Se-Mi: *explains the situation*
Reza: WHAT!? Count me in on the rescue team!
China: ....I can't just... I need to help, aru...
Se-Mi: China....they could kill your children....
China: THEY COULD BE KILLING ONE NOW, ARU!
???2: And somehow just when I manage to sneak in and am about to throw myself into a grinder or something, someone just happens to walk in on me, and boom, I'm left without even that trash they call food for a decade, plus they won't let me go anywhere without my supervisor's approval except to my room. My supervisor's the loudmouth asshat you had the displeasure of meeting.
N. Italy: Non lasciarmi ..... *stomach growls*
Yori: Yuu no try hard enough
Japan: Chaina. Yuu stay. I wirr go.
???2: *laughs and shows Yori about a million covered-up scars from his various attempts at suicide* I'm always just close enough to leave scars, but not close enough to hit anything vital. *one of the scars is bleeding* Tried to impale myself on a sword. My supervisor came in just after watching you guys and chewed me out about trying to kill myself again, taking away the trash for another century, and putting me on video surveillance. *grins* Luckily I got rid of the audio, so he can't hear a word I'm saying.
China: *fullblown panic, getting very distressed, which could be bad for the kids...*
???2: *sighs and leans back again* Who knows, maybe if I keep trying, I'll eventually die from bloodloss.
China: Kiku... *bursts into tears*
Se-Mi: *goes to get Rose or Erde to calm him down*
Renegade?: Indigo, any information on this HQ?
Yori: Hah. Yuu. Not. Try. Hard. Enough.
Indigo: Yes, sir- ma'am- SIR! >< Anyways, we've found an HQ far away from any Spagonian city, but it's the closest one to Feliciano and Romano's last known position. It's a maximum-security HQ, and no-one can enter or exit at will, even the higher-ups, with the exception of the overseer of the HQ.
Erde: *sitting outside under a window*
Germany: I've built prisons like zhose, I should be able to get all of us in.
Se-Mi: *finds Erde and explains the situation*
???2: Look, I'm trying as hard as I can! Do you think I like listening to my stomach growl constantly when I'm trying to sleep?! Do you think I like being a fucking outcast from the rest of the world?!
Romano: *Sniffling* .. Sono qui.. Sono qui. Faremo uscire di qui.. Credetemi. Sono sicuro che qualcuno č in cammino per aiutare
N. Italy: Sp. .. Spero di sė ... fratello ... Sp-*passes out*
???2: I've exhausted all possible methods! The only way I could try any harder is if I called the damn Stick Assassins myself, and they told me that if I did that, they'd do to me what that sack of shit Eggman did to Shadow!
China: *hormones, feeling useless, worried for Yori... not looking good*
???2: Oh, and that's if I catch them in a good mood. If I don't catch them in a good mood, they're going to do to me what they say that Hinzo dude did to Shadow, only I'd be forced to watch a starving village for eternity.
???2: So yeah, if I try any harder, I'm going to get tortured forever.
???2: So don't you fucking tell me I'm not trying hard enough! *pants and clutches his stomach* ><
Germany: *lays out a plan rather quickly*
N. Italy: *no response*
Renegade?: *looks at Indigo*
Romano: *Holding him close*
Indigo: *hands Renegade the info about the HQ*
Erde: *oblivious to what's going on inside*
Yori: *goes back to trying to escape*
Renegade?: *lays out the info to Germany*
Germany: *adjust plan as needed*
Reza: This...is looking good.
Se-Mi: Please...China's really distressed...can you calm him down?
China: *sits in a chair, sobbing*
Se-Mi: *rushes back to China* Come with me.
China: *nods and stands*
Se-Mi: *leads him to Erde*
Renegade?: This plan...is PERFECT. I will brief Se-Mi on it and gather anyone necessary before we head out. Indigo, any reccommendations for who to bring along?
China: Erde, aru? *still crying*
Indigo: I reccommend that you send in any active workers who know the captives, and I'd also reccommend bringing in Zero, seems they're taking some leaves out of both Nega and Hinzo's books when it comes to discipline, according to a bug we planted in the cell block. I would also advise that you spare this stick here *prints out a picture of ???2 in the middle of showing Yori his scars* He could be a potential convert.
Erde: *looks up* What's wrong?
Renegade?: *nods* *Summons Zero and Atem*
Atem: *lands* Wha?
Zero: *lands* Yes, sir?
Zero: ...I'm in
Atem: .....count me in. I just have to deliver a message real fast.
Atem: *slips off to Iakhu's room*
Iakhu: *trying to paint and keep an eye on Tiziana at the same time*
Tiziana: o.o *watching*
Iakhu: O.o Oh hi daaddy
Atem: Can you come out here for a moment? I have some bad news.
Iakhu: ._. *slowly goes over*
Atem: *quietly* it's Feli...He just got captured by the sticks...
Erde: Um. I...only know some japanese...
China: Yori... he was... *sniffle* The sticks, they...
Atem: I'm going to rescue him. Me and a small team
China: And they said all I can do is cook until they get back, aru!
China: I'm useless!
Iakhu: Okay ._, *trying not to cry in front of Tiziana*
Atem: /Yugi, can you comfort Iakhu? I can't stay and do it, I was called to go on the rescue mission!\
Erde: *hugs China* You're not useless! Sending you would just risk more lives than is needed. The people here have dealt with sticks before!
Yugi: *heads to her room*
China: But... he... *quiets down*
Erde: What about Kiku? Where is he?
China: He going to save him, aru...
China: But I can't stand it! Sitting around, cooking!
Erde: *worried for Kiku* And what if something happened to them while you were running around? *pokes China's belly*
England: *walks outside* Yao
China: *sees England* Arthur! *runs over and hugs him*
England: *hugs China back* I heard what happened...I couldn't...I thought I was gonna be sick...*now you know where he was*
China: *crying into his chest* I don't know what to do, aru...
Atem: *leads Iakhu and Tiziana to Yugi, then goes back to Ren's office*
Se-Mi: *heads back to Ren's office*
Renegade?: Germany's plans work perfectly. After we infiltrate, everything works as seen on this print.
Erde: *into her goddess form to try and comfort him, lol outside so benedict and chao can feel it faintly*
Chao: *throwing up in a corner*
Chao: STOP WHINING ARU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!
Chao: o.O *stops throwing up* Huh...
Renegade?: We split into teams of 2. Germany and Atem, you search for the captives and the convert, Reza and Se-Mi, take the south sector, Zero you come with me and we take the north sector.
Zero: Got it.
Germany: Ja, ja.
Atem: Yes, sir!
Erde: *tries to soothe them*
Renegade?: Indigo, alert Rose to what's going on, since she's taking on the medical portion of Feliciano's case. Also try and console those related to those captured
China: *calms down a little*
Indigo: Yes, sir!
China: Arthur... should I... go make some food for them, aru?
China: *speaking very softly*
Erde: They may need it.
China: *nods tearily, wiping eyes* Okay, aru...
Indigo: *goes to find Rose, hoping that she's not in the shower*
Renegade?: Everyone, follow me. *leads the group down to a weapons room*
China: Come with me, aru? *at England*
Rosalyn: *just got OUT of the shower XD*
England: yes. *follows*
Benedict: *hand on Chao's shoulder*
China: *goes to kitchen and starts cooking*
Indigo: *knocks on the bathroom door* Uhm, Mrs. Hedge? You in there?
Se-Mi: *besides her trademark katana, also grabs dual daggers and twin pistols. Also has her magik*
Reza: *pistol, brass knuckles, dual bowguns*
Germany: *heavy. fucking. artillery.*
Atem: *has his egyptian sword, the rest of his abilities are magik in nature*
Zero: *Shadow Rifle, plus the sword Shad gave him, and his powers*
Renegade?: *trademark pistol plus magik*
*someone should notice what appears to be weapons that wouldn't look out of place in a Codename Kids Next Door episode in Indigo's part of the armoury*
Chao: *pukes a little* What, aru?
Germany: ...vhat is zhis?
Japan: *Has his katana on him*
Renegade?: Indigo is a master at improvised weaponry. *had also asked Indigo to contact Romano's bosses*
Benedict: Are you alright?
Rosalyn: *standing outside the bathroom* I'm over here.
Renegade?: *had assigned Japan to be on the same team as Germany*
Chao: Yes, but that stupid weak me is-- *pukes* Crying over that stupid traitor!
Chao: She needs to-- *puke* suck it up, aru! =_=
Benedict: .....My weak self just threw up >>
Chao: Ew... That gross, aru...
Benedict: Says you who can't keep anything down.
Indigo: Oh! Sorry, I thought you were in the shower, 'cause, well, you often seem to...ah, nevermind, that's not important. What is important is that Feliciano...ugh, what's his last name again...>< Italy and his brother, as well as Kiku's other half have been captured by the sticks, so we might need your help with at least Feliciano. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go contact Princess Germano
Rosalyn: ._. That's not good.
Seth: *Ren's darker half* (Although he's less evil and more neutral with a bit of good) *sighs as he hears Chao and Benedict talk about their "weaker" sides* It must be...some sort of trend...for halves such as I...to consider their other halves weaker...*sips his coffee* Perhaps this is just...my refusal...to adhere to certain...stereotypes, however...*shrugs and watches the group head off towards Spagonia* ...Perhaps I should accompany them...have a bit of fun...*walks down towards the armoury, grabs several weapons that appear to have an aura of darkness around them, and follows the rest of the group towards the portal, shortly before Indigo races down and grabs some of the KND weaponry before heading towards the portal, deciding he might as well do something other than pace and curse*
Erde: *goes inside to sit with China as he cooks, to soothe him*
Erde: *byebye good feelings for Chao and Benedict*
Chao: *throws up again*
Seth: *perches on top of a guardhouse, ready to pick off anyone who is close to spotting the group*
Renegade?: *leads everyone through the route that was mapped out*
Yori: *keeps trying different ways to escape*
???2: *trying to sleep in the cell block*
China: *concentrating on her cooking, trying not to worry.*
China: *rubbing belly every so often*
N. Italy: *out like a light*
Germany: *already gunning down sticks in his way as he searches for the cell block*
Atem: *helping Japan out, magikally knocking sticks into Germany's path of fire when necessary*
Zero and Renegade?: *head south*
Reza and Se-Mi: *head north*
Erde: *sees China rubing belly* I wonder how much longer... *means China's babies XD*
Renegade?: *had given Germany and Se-Mi a special device used as means of communication between teams*
Indigo: *giving everyone maps of their respective locations, and whenever sticks try to ambush him, he grabs one of the KND weapons and torches the sticks with white-hot fire or elemental bullets*
China: *a couple more days*
???2: *looks up, hearing the gunfire* Yes, they're here! *struggles to get up, but is unable to* >< Dammit, the one time the Stick Assassins come, and I end up losing all my energy...
Romano: *Holding onto Feli with all the strength he has left*
Germany: *busts down the door to the cell block*
Atem: *immediately at Feli and Romano's door*
Germany: *spots ???2* *walks up to him*
Germany: *over the private intercom thingy* Vhe found zhem.
Renegade?: Excellent. Break them out and find the nearest exit.
???2: *looks up at Germany* About time you guys got here. *panting, he tries to hand over the cell keys to Germany* Take the keys and get me out of here. Shoot me dead if you have to.
Yori: *silent for the first time in a while, watching Doitsu*
Germany: ....do jou vhant to live? I vhould never take an innocent man's life. Not after zhe vhar.*takes the keys and tosses them to Atem*
Atem: *catches the keys*
China: *cooking quietly, nervous for Yori to return*
???2: Live, die, anything's better than being about 5 seconds from wasting away in this Temple-forsaken hellhole, and yet unable to waste away at the same time.
Atem: *unlocks all the doors* ._____________. @ Feli
N. Italy: *no response*
Germany: ...I'm taking jou vith me. Vhait here, I have to get mein husband *heads straight into Romano and Feli's cell*
Atem: *picks up Feli* I've got him, Romano, don't worry.
Romano: *Weakly, in tears* .. Lud.. Thank-a god....
Germany: ._. *quickly scoops up Romano and helps up ???2*
Japan: !! Yori! *Goes over to his cell
Yori: *eyes glaring red* ....Yuu....here?
???2: Do what you have to, but for Temple's sake, just get me out of here!
???1: So...you are a traitor...I assumed so, the way you continued to try and kill yourself. I should've sent you to the Realm of Discipline when I had the chance...
Yori: *starts shouting Japanese obscenities at ???1*
Germany: ...........*balances Romano onto one side, grabs a pistol and shoots ???1 through the head*
???1: *drops a strange-looking pistol on the ground as he collapses*
Japan: Why ya, no just reave yuu here. Now ret go! *Gets Yori out and takes him*
Renegade?: Alright. Zero, teleport back to the IDHQ. Germany, Atem get everyone else back to the IDHQ. Se-Mi, arrest some of the higher level sticks and teleport them to the holding chambers, then contact Princess Germano. Reza, you're with me, we're taking this place down.
Zero: *teleports back*
Germany: Got it. Vhe have all 4 of zhem.
Se-Mi: Got it. *rushes off*
Reza: Meeting you at hallway 6.
Atem: Japan, get Yori and let's move!
Atem: *holding Feli, grabs the strange pistol thingy and puts it away*
???2: *passes out before ???1 is shot*
Germany: *rushes out*
Atem: *rushes out as well* I'll lead you guys to the portal!
Yori: *stumbles after Kiku, a bit slow and weak*
Japan: .. *Picks him up* No time. *Rushes out after*
China: *finished making food, sets it out on table and waiting impatiently*
Yori: *surprised by being carried, finally relaxes and goes a bit limp though*
Germany: *puts pistol away and picks up ???2*
Germany: *busts down another door and runs through that*
Atem: *runs out and runs ahead, leading them to a portal*
???2: *still passed out*
Atem: *leads his group into the portal to the IDHQ*
Germany: I'll take Feli, jou handle zhis person. *gently lays down Romano and ???2*
Atem: *lays Feli down*
Germany: *picks up both Feli and Romano*
Atem: *picks up ???2* *heads straigh to Rose*
Germany: *goes to his room and lays Feli and Romano on his bed* *heads for the kitchen*
Rosalyn: *waiting in the medical wing*
Atem: *brings ???2 to Rose* Both the brothers were taken to their room by Germany
Rosalyn: And this one...?
China: *has food ready for whenever anyone needs it*
Japan: *Rushes thru portal carrying Yori, straight toward his bedroom*
Yori: *once Kiku gets him into better light, he's just as painfully thin as the sticks made Romano and Feli, but he's also covered in scrapes and bruises from repeated attempts to escape...as well as nastier "punishment" wounds for his bad behavior*
Atem: He's a convert
Germany: *grabs 2 heaping plates of food and heads straight back to his room, sitting by Romano's side*
N. Italy: *unconcious still, stomach growls loudly*
Rosalyn: I'll see what I can do. *tending ???2*
China: o: Are they back, aru?!
China: I need to go see Yori!
???2: *opens his eyes* Unh...where am I...?
China: *takes a tray piled with food and goes to Japan's bedroom* Yori, aru!
Yori: *limp, looking as described above*
China: ...YORI! *puts food next to his bed and starts mothering him*
???2: *looks around at the white aura* Am...am I dead...? *looks at Rosalyn* Are you...an angel...? *is a gray wolf, and can barely keep his eyes open*
Rosalyn: No. Simply a healer.
Atem: *left to find Yugi*
Yori: *able to look at China for a moment before running out of strength and passes out*
???2: Oh...*looks around* ...This better not be another one of my coma dreams...
Yugi: *unable to comfort Iakhu* ._.
Rosalyn: It's not.
Yugi: *stops Atem* We're not the one she needs right now...
Atem: Yugi. The rescue was a huge success!
China: *crying with relief* You're safe now, aru... *holds hand and sits by bedside, waiting for him to wake*
???2: *clutches his stomach, the aura unable to rid him of his hunger pains* >.o Oh yeah, it's definitely not a dream.
Rosalyn: You should go get food.
???2: If I can get up... >.o
Yori: *stomach noises*
Atem: Both Feli and Romano are unconcious, sadly.
Japan: ._. Mai.. Yuu rook..
Rosalyn: You should be healed enough for that.
Yori: *yeah he looks like crap*
???2: *gets up and tries to keep himself from collapsing* Where's the kitchen?
China: *tired, falls asleep at Yori's bedside*
Rosalyn: *gives directions*
???2: *shakily walks over to the kitchen, and gets some hot dogs, puts ranch on them, and eats them* *shudders in delight* Oh, man, I've missed this...
Yori: *looks like crap and stomach making noises*
Germany: *shakes Romano*
Iakhu: *curled up, no reply*
Yugi: *drags Atem away*
Romano: *Stirs a lil*
Yugi: She doesn't need US.
Atem: I know...but unfortunately the one she does need can't come to her.
Romano: .. *Opens eyes*
Germany: Lovino? *gives him plate of food*
???2: *sits down in the kitchen, and eats everything he can get his hands on, coating stuff like hot dogs and hamburgers with ranch*
Romano: *Sits up* .. Luddie?
Germany: *hugs Romano, trying not to cry*
Germany: *yes, covered in blood*
Romano: *Hugs back, weakly, already crying again*
Seth and Indigo: *come back from destroying the HQ*
Yori: *can't feed himself while unconscious*
Germany: *lets go* Jou need to eat.
Romano: *Still hanging onto him..*
Japan: *Trying to feed him*
Yori: *not exactly struggling so it's semi-easy*
Romano: *Sniffle* S-stay-a here..
Romano: *Lets go*
???2: *gulps down the last bite of a hamburger before placing his head on the desk, exhausted and his stomach hurting from being full to bursting*
Germany: *looks over at Feli*
N. Italy: *hasn't budged*
Atem: *slips away to go check on ???2*
Yori: *eventually starts to wake up*
Romano: ._. Fratello...
???2: *looks up at Atem* =_= Oh, it's you...that...Jedi...dude...*yawns*
Germany: ..he vhas already vheak vhen zhey kidnapped him
Atem: yeah...that's me. You need help?
Yori: *eyes open, still angry red*
???2: I'm just glad to be out of that hellhole...
Iakhu: *LOOKING FOR FELI AND DRAGING TIZIANA WITH HER*
Atem: I know....I know....*sits down by him* *sighs* They probably told you I was heartless, a ruthless person who turned you insane before you died....in truth, I'm just an ordinary guy looking to protect his family.
Tiziana: Mommy, what's going on?
???2: Could you ask whoever's in charge of this place if I can stay here for a bit? No doubt everyone I knew and loved has probably shoved me out of their lives for even joining that thrice-damned cult...
Atem: of course! Stay as long as you want!
Atem: I'll have to go to the SA to get you an ID card and put you into the database for sympathy bonding and all that...
???2: heh, believe me, anything you could do to me would've been cake compared to what they would've done to me had my "boss" managed to shoot at me with that pistol.
Atem: O.o pistol? Oh, this? *grabs it* Wait here, lemme take it back to the SA *leaves then shortly comes back without it*
???2: *balks at the sight of the pistol, then calms down when he comes back without* Dammit, don't scare me like that ><
Atem: sorry ._. so very sorry....
Iakhu: I'm looking for daddy... *so sad*
Atem: *worry in his eyes*
Tiziana: What happened to Daddy?
???2: It's alright...Anyways, I heard you guys have been trying to find information on Triausa.
Iakhu: I don't know
Atem: yes. I don't know if you've heard, but a nation that's tied to its counterpart in their world had arrived. He....was charged for starvation of a minor, but we aquitted him on finding out said kid was being picky. So yeah, because of that misunderstanding, we're wondering if what happened in this world was a misunderstanding.
???2: If by "misunderstanding" you mean "kidnapping the entire government and then posing as said government"
Yori: *blinks a bit, then seems to recognize his surroundings* ..I....not rock ahp...
*Iakhu, check Romano and Germany's room*
???2: Honestly, my boss would not shut the fuck up about how he laughed when he saw the country get nuked, knowing full well that the real government officials were within the blast range.
Atem: ._. not good
Atem: well he's dead now
Atem: one of our new recruits shot him
???2: Good riddance to bad rubbish, if you ask me. That dude loved abusing everyone in the damned HQ, I was the only one that refused to take it like a bitch.
Atem: Good for you then. And look at you now.
Atem: ...what's your name by the way
???2: Ronald. My friends used to call me Rogue 'cause of my arrogance.
Atem: *smirk* Atem Muto.
Ronald: That plus I was awesome with a beam saber *chuckles*
Ronald: Well, nice to meet you, Mr. Muto. Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to stay here and let my stomach digest the first eatable stuff that came into it in years.
Atem: *nod* let me or another member of the SA know if you need anything. ...And by the way, the guy that spared you? Don't expect to see him around for a bit...
Japan: Yuu safe now. *Brings plate of food over for him to reach*
*suddenly Indigo and Seth can be heard cursing loudly in Ren's office*
Atem: the people captured were his husband and brother in law. So he's probably gonna be spending most of his time with them.
Yori: ...Yuu... came..... for me...?
Atem: you want me to help you to a room?
Ronald: Sure, with any luck, maybe this room will have a bed.
Ronald: *overhears the enraged yelling* Sounds like there's a commotion going on.
Atem: all of them do. Pretty comfy beds if I do say so myself. ...well except for Zero's room, but that's because he's got one custom fit for himself. ..And I don't know what that's about
Renegade?: Will you two SHUT UP!? *seems to have taken a few cues from Germany*
Atem: *helps him up*
Indigo: No, I will not shut up, sir! Not when shit like THIS exists! *grabs the pistol and shakes it in Ren's face before throwing it back down on the desk*
Seth: Normally I would not accept his talking back to you, but I agree with him! I sense that damned reality-warper's power in that wretched thing!
Renegade?: Reality-warping!? Destroy the damn thing immediately!
Indigo: But how?! If this thing is anything like that damned god-modder, this thing will refuse to be destroyed no matter what we do!
Indigo: ...We need to talk to that convert, if what Germany and Atem said is correct, the stick overseer was about to use it on him before he was killed. He might know more about it, but until then, I advise that this thing be kept away from everyone!
Absolutely. The only other thing I can think of is to send it somewhere that it cannot be used.
Indigo: Then definitely get it away from here. Vortex is second only to Hinzo in terms of reality-warping, so there's no guarantee he won't get his hands on it no matter where we put it.
Renegade?: The Shadow Relm is completely out of the question, thanks to Bakura. But where else can we put it?
Japan: Ya. No way in herr we just reave yuu. Yuu shourd eat now.
Yori: *reaches weakly for the food*
Germany: ...jou both are vhorrying me.
Seth: Perhaps we should...place it in my quarters...being the son of...a monster such as...Ejrah...has its advantages...I can stop people from just...appearing in my room without...my authorization...
Seth: Thank you. *waves his hand over the pistol, which disappears into Seth's room* Give Lilith my regards the next time you see her. *walks out of the office*
Yori: *looking at Kiku, red fading from eyes* ....Why.
Atem: *is going to propose promoting Germany to Level 2*
Romano: *Finishes eating*
Yori: ...Why yuu come for me...I thought...yuu no rike me....
Japan: Wai yuu have to tink dat?
Yori: How yuu treat me.
Japan: *Still in the smexy hooker costume. unf*
Iakhu: *goes in Germany's room*
Erde: *walks into the room with Kiku and Yori* O________o Kiku.... *nosebleed*
N. Italy: *unconcious*
Japan: *Awww yeah rook at dis Erde. Rook at dat assu*
Japan: *ROOK AT IT HARD*
Ronald: *looks over at Atem* Oh, by the way, one of your workers...why was he dressed as a hooker?
Austria: BECAUSE HE'S DIFFERENT. LEAVE HIM ALONE. //keeps sticking singles//
Ronald: O.o Who the...?
Atem: I have no clue. And yeah, THAT is the man tied to that world's equivelent of Triausa.
Atem: one minute he's refined as fuck, the next minute he's crazy as fuck
Erde: Kiku...what are you...wearing..... *nooooosebleeeeeed*
Atem: *helping Ronald to a room*
Iakhu: FELI!!!!! *pretty much pounces on him*
N. Italy: *no response*
Germany: Careful he's fragile.
Iakhu: *crying over him*
Yori: *struggling to eat he's so weak*
Japan: .. *Turns around* Hm?
Erde: *noooooooooosebleed* What are you wearing o.o
Japan: *Looks down* ..
Japan: W-wat da herr!!
Japan: *Tries to cover xD*
Yori: ...Yuu onry NOW notice dat?
Japan: HOW RONG IT BEEN?!
Iakhu: *crying over Feli*
N. Italy: *hasn't woken up*
Germany: *worried sick*
Yori: Since bahfore I go thru dat portar.
Germany: He vhon't vhake up....
Japan: ..... Yuu serious.
Yori: *nod nod*
N. Italy: *hand slides over Iakhu's*
Iakhu: !!!! FELI!?
N. Italy: *stirs*
Yori: ........... Kiku...
Iakhu: Feli.... ;.;
N. Italy: *weakly pulls the blanket over his head*
N. Italy: *crying and whimpering from the pain*
Germany: ....*very, very VERY close to breaking down*
Germany: *this plus being worried sick over his husband...*
Iakhu: Feli are you okay..!
N. Italy: Mi fa male...
Japan: .. Watto?
Romano: *Scoots closer to his brother*
Yori: ....saank yuu... >>'
Garrick: *Peeks in* Mom? Dad? Are j-- ..................
Germany: Jour mudder and uncle are very sick.
Garrick: *Walks in slowly* .___. .. Vhat happened..
Iakhu: *staying close to Feli*
Germany: I'll explain later.....*faceinhands* Just....*tearing up* please go...
Austria: Was ist los- //inches on in// Ludviggggggg.
Germany: G-go avhay...
Austria: Aww come on. You'd feel better if you talked to somevone-
Iakhu: *her face is tearstreaked*
Austria: Bitte? //sits next to//
Germany: ...jou vouldn't understand, Roderich.
Japan: It no probrem. <<;; ..... I tink.. I go change.. *Goes to his closet*
Austria: I can try, can't I? //places a gentle hand on his shoulder//
Yori: *still struggling to eat*
Germany: *sighs* take a closer look at bozh of zhem....
Austria: /looks him in the eye/ It's about Feliciano und Lovino, ja? Vell, Feliciano's alvays been hard to deal vith, but I'm sure he'll be just fine. ..
Germany: *tears in his eyes* ....I'm not so sure, Roderich...I'm not so sure....zhis vhasn't just a mishap...zhis vhas done out of spite.
Caution: Lit ahead, but not all of us are good with lit, so it's mixed lit and script format.
Austria: He reached up and wiped a stray tear from the German's cheek with his soft, pale thumb. "Ludvig, he's stronger zhan you zhink. He can get zhrough zhis, but he needs you to help him. He needs both of you two to help him."
N. Italy: The Italian lay there, worse than any had ever seen him. Whatever had happened to him, can't have been plesant. Skin puckered around his lips and eyes, so thin it seemed it could tear at any moment. Not a hint of fat or muscle remained in his gaunt cheeks. His hands too, were bony, painfully thin. He looked as if he should be nothing more than a walking corpse, and one that had died of extreme starvation at that.
Germany: "Jou see vhat I'm talking about?" Germany whispered. "He vhas kidnapped, and I found him like zhis. Romano too." The German wiped fresh tears from his eyes as he sighed deeply. "I don't know zheir motives, or vhy zhey chose to take mein husband and his bruder above anyvhone else, but...."
Garrick: .... *Slowly backs out*
N. Italy: Italy quickly pulled the covers back over himself, as if one more moment without being completely buried in soft fabric would kill him. However beneath the soft shell, you could clearly see him shuddering.
Austria: The Austrian put a spiderfinger to his chin and looked around the floor, thinking. "Hm, zhat's horrible." He looked up at Germany and pressed his palm to the other's cheek. "Ludvig, like I said before. You all can get zhrough zhis as a family, trust me." He held a strong gaze into the German's solid blue eyes. "To him, you're probably ze strongest man in ze vorld, und you haff been since ze day he's met you. It's hard even for me to see zhat man cry."
Germany: Germany averted his gaze from the Austrian's violet eyes for a brief moment. "Roderich. People cry not because zhey are vheak, but because zhey've been strong for too long."
Romano: *Laying close to his brother*
Austria: He frowned and narrowed his eyes a bit. "It's a sign zhat you care, it's obvious ze German has a soft spot." He forced a smile and punched the German's arm a bit, before pulling the German into a hug. "don't vorry, zhey'll be fine..."
Germany: Germany smiled at Romano for a brief moment, before getting punched in the arm and pulled into a hug by Austria. "I know zhe'll be fine...it's more zhat....if zhey're like zhis, zhey can't handle nation problems vhell at all.." The German hesitated for a brief moment, fighting back tears again. "And jou know how poorly zhe Italian economy is doing. Romano vhill be fine since his ties have been transferred to Spagonia, but Italy...."
Astria: The Austrian pulled back. "Zhey can only be strong, if ze people around zhem are just as strong. Verstenstein?" he wavered his finger.
Germany: "I understand." Germany replied. With renewed determination in his eyes, the German man looked over towards Romano and Iakhu. "Bozh of jou, do me a favor. Make sure he eats somezhing."
Austria: He smiled and pat the German's head. "Gut talk, ja?"
Japan: *Starts changing infront of Yori and Erde*
Erde: *passes out from nosebleed*
Germany: Germany pushed the Austrian's hand away, as he did not like his head patted for some strange reason. "Ja. Zhank jou for understanding."
Austria: He nodded and left the room in a swift motion.
Iakhu: ... *grabs a spoon and tries to poke food at Feli*
N. Italy: *nomming hungrily*
Iakhu: *spoonfeeds him*
Yori: *starts laughing*
Japan: .. Watto?
Yori: Wat happen to arr dat modesty!
Japan: << As rong as no one erse..
Japan: *LOL HE LEFT THE DOOR OPEN THOUGH*
N. Italy: *lets her*
Prussia #2: He enters the room the room and looks around, "Was ist los--"
Germany: Ozher bruder.
Iakhu: A blonde-furred anthro girl with some wolflike features sits by the bed when HF's Prussia enters. She is feeding Feli carfuly with a spoon, and tears stain her muzzle.
Prussia: *Follows his other self in*
N. Italy: *letting Iakhu feed him* *most of his features aside from his curl are obscured by a blanket*
Prussia #2: He goes over to Germany and scans Italy. He looked horrible, "... V-Vhat's vrong vith Ita-chan?!"
Germany: Germany looked over at the Prussian man with a solumn look on his face. "A cult kidnapped him. Vhen I found him and Romano, zhey vhere bozh like zhis." He then slowly looked over at the white wolf, not saying a single word.
Erde: *passed out on the floor due to nosebleed, nice going kiku*
Prussia #2: Prussia looked down, "... How's Romano holding up, Bruder?" He asked softly, trying not to show how emotional he was.
Germany: Germany looked over to his human brother. "He's doing better zhan Feli, but he's still not vhell. Feli vhas sick before zhis happened, and it's not helping a bit..." Another thought came to the German man's mind. "Bruder" He said, addressing his wolf brother. "Jou know vhere all mein children are?"
Prussia: Bruudeerr.. Vhere have jouu-- *Stops, notices. His eyes widen*
Prussia #2: He looked down and cursed, going over to Italy. "Oh Gott, Ita-chan...." He muttered.
Prussia: ..... I actually just came to talk to jou about zhat. Garrick came to me saying zhat he and Sylvia can't find Serena.. *Steps over*
Iakhu: The wolf-like girl feeding Feliciano has moved some of the blankets in her efforts to feed Feli. Both Prussias should have a better glimpse of him now...
Romano: What-a?! *Jerks up* ><
Germany: Germany gasped in horror. He couldn't believe his ears! First his husband and best friend were kidnapped and dumped into some supernatural goo that stripped their bodies to skin and bones-along with causing them unimaginable hunger pains-now his daughter is missing! "VHAT!?" He shouted. "Tell me zhis isn't true...."
Romano: Ow.. f-fuck.. *Lies back down*
N. Italy: The Italian lay weak as he ate the food from Iakhu's spoon. Someone...or something...had hurt him, badly. He looked like a skeleton with skin painfully stretched over it. Briefly he looked up at the human Prussia. "Ciao..." His eyes slid partway open for a moment....gaunt sunken things that belonged more to a corpse than a living thing.
Prussia #2: He looked down and didn't feel like talking. He couldn't really think of anything to say to the poor nation, "..."
Germany: Romano....don't push jourself..
Se-Mi: *checking the phonebook, then dials the number for Spagonia's royal family*
*pfft se-mi misdials* BEE-BEE-BEEP! We're sorry, your call could not be completed as dialed. Please hang up and try your call again.
Se-Mi: FUCK YOU PHONE! *re-dials* if this happens again, I'm gonna steal Romano's cell phone.

Se-Mi: Oh, hello, Sir. Is the Princess available? This is Se-Mi of the SA.

Se-Mi: *slight eyeroll*
China: *wakes up and rubs eyes*
China: *really showing now*
Germany: *had barely left Romano and Feli's side except to get food and use the bathroom*
China: *looks around room*
Yori: *asleep in the bed, still looks awful*
N. Italy: *sleeping as well. Not sleeping well, mind you*
Erde: *passed out on floor from a nosebleed unless Kiku picked her up*
China: *lol watching him sleep*
China: *worred face*
Iakhu: *stayed up all night until she eventually passed out from being tired next to feli*
China: *sees Erde* O.o
China: *sighs, stands and goes to kitchen*
China: *makes a few cups of tea, takes them back through*
N. Italy: *shuddering in his sleep*
Se-Mi: Hello, Your Highness.
Princess: You wanted to speak to me?
Se-Mi: Yes. You got the message from last night, correct?
Japan: *Had picked her up xD*
China: *didn't see Erde or get her any tea then*
Princess: No. I'm afraid-a we were rather-a busy.
Erde: *snoozing in the bed or wherever Kiku put her then*
Se-Mi: ...well Romano and his brother got kidnapped by sticks
Princess: ._. But...he...they...were-a just....
Se-Mi: ....I know ._. ....We sent in a team to rescue them AND a third person AND a convert, and we got everyone out safely
Princess: *sounds shaky* I-a see.
Se-Mi: last I checked, the convert has recovered fully, but the others are still very sick, especially Romano's brother.
China: *waiting for Yori to wake up or something to happen*
Romano: *Starts to wake up*
Germany: Good morning, Romano. How are jou feeling?
Princess: Oh my...
Chao: Ugh, my head, aru...
Chao: *stands up, wanders outside and walks into a tree*
Princess: Oh my...
China: *suddenly feels a little dizzy* Huh...
Yori: *stirs, just a little*
Romano: ... Shitty..
Se-Mi: We managed to capture 5 second in command sticks in that particular HQ for your country to try. We intended to bring the leader of that HQ in too, but Romano's husband shot him dead.
China: Yori, aru?
Yori: *opens one eye*
Germany: Jou need anyzhing?
China: ...You feeling better, aru? *little smile*
China: I brought you some tea.
Princess: *mumbles something that sounds like "I better find another dress that can get ruined with blood"*
Yori: *reaches for it, shaky and PAINFULLY thin from what the sticks did to him*
China: *grabs it and holds it to his mouth*
Se-Mi: I just thought I would let you know. And our doors are open if you ever wish to visit either of the brothers.
Princess: I will-a remember that.....
Se-Mi: Thank you for your time, Your Highness.
China: *very quiet*
Yori: *drains it all*
Princess: *Hangs up*
China: Did you eat any of the food I left yesterday, aru?
Se-Mi: *hangs up*
N. Italy: *shudder, shudder*
China: ...Would you like some more, aru?
Romano: .. Maybe-a something to eat
Germany: Alright. *slips out*
Yori: *slow nod*
China: *nods and goes to the kitchen, quickly whips something up and takes it to him*
Germany: *quickly scours the fridge for some of Romano's favorites*
China: Here you go, aru...
Yori: ...dat fast
China: I don't want you to have to wait, aru.
Yori: .. *silently eats, very shaky*
China: Besides, it nothing fancy aru.
China: *looks on, concerned*
Erde: China is it alright to be on your feet if you're that far along? *lol sitting up awake*
Germany: *comes back with plenty of pasta, tomatoes, etc*
China: Huh? I.... don't know, aru...
China: *looks around eight months along*
Romano: .. *Sits up* Thank-a you.
Germany: No problem. *sits the food by him*
Germany: *looks like he hasn't slept well*
Erde: I had to stay in bed after a while when I was carrying....
Romano: .. Lud. You don't-a look well either.
Yori: Yuu get fat *smirks but says it in a teasing way*
China: *actually feels a little heavy on her feet but doesn't want to just lie in bed all day doing nothing*
China: *cracks a grin* You get thin, aru. *says it in a not-mean way*
Yori: ............ *nice, now he's thinking about being stuck in that cage again....*
China: ....I'm sorry, aru, that was stupid thing to say...
China: *guilty face* You safe now, aru.
Germany: I couldn't sleep last night....not vith jou and Feli unvhell, as vhell as Japan's ozher half, AND Serena being missing...
Yori: *slow nod*
China: *awkward silence* ...
ROmano: Fuck, they still haven't-a found her?!

China: *enters room* Arthur, aru?
China: ...Why haven't you asked me yet, aru? *not angry*
England; asked what?
China: *little smile* To feel my belly, aru? *goes over*
