Hokay it's definitely snowing out there... Snowing in August... Okay.

We didn't all travel through time... did we?

[NPC] Grim
Ah, yes, about the snow.

I already mentioned this to Naru, but due to the fracture in time surrounding the park, the seasons are expected to change frequently, as is the time of day among other things time related. The park itself might also jump through its own history as well. I assure you, it's limited to the park only. The rest of the city is still summer.

...I just got a text from Naru. She said the park looks like a snowglobe and asked me if she should get down here.

[NPC] MichiWell, looks like you got your wish Priscilla.

[NPC] PriscillaIf I knew my words had so much power to them I would have asked for a million zenny.

[NPC] North KoreaHoly crap it's freezing out there! Wh-wh-wh-where did I leave my coat?

[NPC] MichiUpstairs.

North leaves to grab his coat.

[NPC] MichiMilan, you good or do you need a coat too?

[NPC] MilanTch. What are you, my mom?

[NPC] Drossel
I'll see if this building has any indoor heating. I don't think you could find a coat that would fit me anyway.

[NPC] MichiGood thinking. We should get an idea of the building if we're making it our temporary base.

Mr. Grim? You said Naru texted you earlier, right?

[NPC] GrimYes, the Naru who's part of this time period. She needed some rest after fighting her future self and is staying in a nearby hotel. She should be wide awake now, so if you'd like to make a call now would be the best time.

Ah, yeah, right. I'll... go do that.

Drossel leaves the room.

[NPC] Michi
I guess that's it for the meeting. Hey Grim, are we good or is there anything else we need to know?

[NPC] GrimNothing you need to know, but I have to keep the meeting going. With time travel involved I need to relay a few messages for some of the later guests, but you're all free to go.

Howard edit this out.

Sweet. Come on Cilla, it's about time for bed.

[NPC] PriscillaAwww, I wanted to make a snowman.

[NPC] Bugsy III bet you could make a snow angel or two real quick.

Michi doesn't even bother rolling and lightly nudges Bugsy with her elbow. Bugsy takes no damage, but is startled.

[NPC] Bugsy IIOw hey what for?!

The snow will still be here in the morning.

[NPC] PriscillaBut Grim just said the seasons could change, so it might not be!

[NPC] GrimIt's true.

Not helping Grim.

If it's not here in the morning then we'll go somewhere up north for the holidays when we get back to our own time, alright?

[NPC] PriscillaAlright...

[NPC] Priscilla
....What was that?!

[NPC] MilanThat sounded like a wolf... B-but there aren't any wolves in Central Park.... a-are there?

[NPC] GrimThere's a zoo not far from here.

Post » Sun Aug 21, 2016 7:22 am


[NPC] Michi
No, that sounded too close to be from the zoo. I think it's wild.

[NPC] Bugsy IIW-Wild?!

[NPC] MilanHow'd a damn wolf get into central park?!

Same way we did I'd assume.

[NPC] PriscillaTime travel? Is that possible? Can the park grab animals too?

[NPC] GrimHa ha, I have no idea.

I'm going out. Get some sleep, Cilla. Tell Drossel and North I'll be out.

[NPC] Bugsy IIW-Where are you going?

Third rule of surviving in the Battle Verge: Never sleep when there are monsters nearby.

[NPC] Priscilla

...Don't you want your coat back?

[NPC] MichiKeep it. I got a spare. Get some rest, okay?

[NPC] Bugsy IIMind if I tag along?

[NPC] MichiHelp yourself. You coming too, Milan?

[NPC] MilanYeah, I guess.

[NPC] Grim
Ryan, could you also go with them? It can get pretty unpredictable out there at this time of night.

[NPC] RyanYeah, sure, but I don't have my scythe with me atm. That won't be a problem, will it?

Oh not at all. I'm sure you'll be fine with just a cadet scythe... but where is that scythe of yours?

[NPC] RyanWith Alex, same as yours. They'll be here in less than an hour with the time travelers.

Ah that's good. Looks like you'll be getting some backup, Michi.

Post » Sun Aug 21, 2016 7:33 am


[NPC] Michi
Well they better get here soon or there won't be any action left! You guys ready?

[NPC] Bugsy IIReady when you are.

[NPC] MilanWe going or what?

[NPC] PriscillaI wanna come too!

Not this time Cilla. You're still sick. The most important thing you can do now is get some rest so you'll be ready for the next fight.

[NPC] PriscillaBut-!

Hey, nobody is going to think you're useless if you don't come. Besides, I'll need your help in the bigger fights ahead, so make sure you're at one hundred percent when they happen, okay?

[NPC] PriscillaAlright...

Want a hug before I go?

[NPC] PriscillaNo, I'm... I'm good.

Alright team, let's move out! Tonight, we hunt for wolves!

[NPC] RyanHey bae. What's up?

[NPC] Blue SpiritHello Ryan, just thought I'd check in on how things are going in Little City. Have you helped any wandering souls find rest?... or whatever it is you do in the mortal world?

[NPC] RyanOh, no Grim just wanted to mooch off me and help me carry some bags. All he did was window shop for a solid hour before picking out some uninteresting knick-knacks before we checked out. And he still doesn't know how to pronounce manga correctly... or maybe he does and he's just being facetious. Or hell, maybe MANga is a real thing and I've just never noticed? Wait, if Grim and I Time Traveled, how are you able to call me?

Wait, are you in 2005 as well?

[NPC] Blue SpiritYes, didn't Grim tell you? He wanted me in Little City to help with the quantum displacement.

[NPC] RyanHow come?

[NPC] Blue SpiritGrim said he needed my mystery solving skills to help unravel what's causing the temporal anomaly. I suggested a first hand look at the issue would yield the best results. Unfortunately, we can't risk letting the other Reapers know what we're up to, so to avoid being tracked we have to go the long way. I'm personally escorting the two Waybackers with me, along with both you and Grim's scythes.

[NPC] RyanOh! You mean the Time Travelers. Well where are you now?

[NPC] Blue SpiritAbout twelve hours from Little City on the interstate. Thought I'd take old Hershel out for a road trip for once. Forgot they drive on the opposite side of the road in this country for a bit, but all's well that ends well!


[NPC] RyanWhoa! Heeey! Good to hear you too, Risky! You sound older. How've you been?

[NPC] Yellow SpiritIT'S MY WORST NIGHTMARE! He just goes on and on and on about the most boring stuff! It's like AM radio, but it's about subway systems and outdated gun laws! DID I MENTION WE MIGHT'VE HIT SOME PEOPLE A-A-AND JUST DROVE ON PAST?! DIDN'T HELP AT ALL?!

[NPC] Blue SpiritIt wasn't my fault.

[NPC] RyanWell who else were we going to get? Neither of you know the living world very well. You'd prolly get lost somewhere!

[NPC] Yellow SpiritI DON'T KNOW! ANYBODY!!!

[NPC] Orange SpiritWell, Angie is a terrible driver, and Elene doesn't know how to drive. Neither does Edward, or Marina, or The Crooked Man. Your parents are even worse drivers... no offense... and Lily Anne gets sick when she Time Travels. That's all the immediate friends that we know of.

[NPC] Yellow SpiritWhat about Howard?...

[NPC] Orange SpiritOh...


...Well, too late now I guess!


[NPC] RyanYou said the Scythes are with you, right? Do they have seats of their own or are they in the trunk somewhere hiding?

[NPC] Yellow SpiritNo they're in their weapon forms until we can get them in the park. Time Eaters shouldn't be able to get in with that barrier Grim told me about.

[NPC] RyanYeah, Grim also said the other Reapers can't monitor what's going on inside either. Even bought me a new phone an hour ago so they couldn't track me while I'm in Little City. Transferring all my contacts was a pain tho.

Well, nice speaking to you, but Grim got me a phone with a pathetic battery life for security reasons. Talk to you later! Bye Alex!


[NPC] Orange SpiritSooooo...
How much longer did you say it'll take us to get there?

[NPC] Blue SpiritTwelve hours, give or take. Could play one of your video games to pass the time if you like.

[NPC] Orange SpiritAnd Grim said Naru was going to be there, right?

[NPC] Blue SpiritNaru? Wait- Naru? Naru Matsuri?

[NPC] Orange Spirit......Do you know her?

[NPC] Blue SpiritShe's my goddaughter...

...Well... was... before I died. She's probably only seen photos of me and Angie from her mother. She must have been two years old last time I saw her.
Is she a friend of yours?

[NPC] Orange SpiritYou could say that.

Wait, I'm getting a call...

It's from Ryan again... twelve hours from now...


[NPC] RyanWe've got a problem... a big problem.

[NPC] Orange SpiritShoot, what's the situation?

[NPC] RyanSomeone got out.
