Last thing I remember I was... walking home... and I couldn't see very well because of I didn't have my glasses. And now I ended up in a barrel. Maybe I feel in it somehow...?


H-how I f-f-feel about Rella?? Why would you need to know that...?
No. 478778 ID: 0f2cc3

Because we're helpful! We're bound to help anybody that can hear us! So, if you tell us, we could help you be with her, maybe.
No. 478779 ID: f2c20c

Didn't you have a shirt before? You probably should've mentioned to Rella you lost your glasses. Well, we can see fine, so we'll help you out.

It kindof sounds like you got mugged and they stole the shirt off your back. Check your pockets to see if anything's missing.
No. 478781 ID: ec6d4c

Maybe you could find your house? Get a new shirt, your spare glasses?

You need to pack up anyways. Aren't you leaving for a trip with Rella and Bonzi? You don't want to be late, do you?

>H-how I f-f-feel about Rella?? Why would you need to know that...?
Because as disembodied voices we like to, whenever possible, help people with relationships. It's like a hobby. Lets us live vicariously.

Well, actually, we like to help people in general. But relationships? Those are just fun.

The only thing I was carrying in my pockets was my house key, and that's still there. I don't remember bring mugged, but it's possible they stole my shirt and put me in that barrel.


The trip with Rella and Bonzi isn't until next week. I still have some time.

And no! I don't need your help with Rella. Besides... she wants nothing to do with me.

Hmm, the fact that we're no longer in Rella's head is concerning. I hope the other voice didn't forcibly shove us out. If we hadn't been there yesterday there would have probably been fatalities.

>she wants nothing to do with me.
Well, she did actually let you come along for all of that despite everything she's afraid of. That sounds a lot better than not wanting anything to do with you. Talk to that guy, maybe he knows what happened. You don't just black out and not remember anything falling down without injuries.

That's Mr. Oliver. He owns a flower shop here in town. He's about ten years older than me, so I guess I am a kid to him...


W-why would I do that??


"Oh, hi Mr. Oliver."

>"Kid, are you drinking or something? I found you passed out in one of my barrels. I figured I'd just leave you to soak in your misery."

"Oh, er, sorry. I wasn't drinking. I was just really tired. H-have you seen my shirt?"

>"Over there."

He's pointing at a wall. My shirt's hanging off a nail in the wall. It's all torn, though...

And I don't want to talk about Rella! I just want to get another shirt and some glasses.
No. 479083 ID: ec6d4c

Well sor-ry if we wanted to talk about 'Rella. We did spend the last day or two in her head, after all. But sure, we'll drop it for the moment.

Go. Take your mangled shirt, head home, change clothes, and get out your backup glasses. Assuming of course you have a backup, and they're not ridiculous looking and that the prescription isn't too out of date.
No. 479087 ID: e3f578

Well too bad son, you know why? We're stuck with you, and our first impression of you was that damn flower behind your back. And it's fine you want to tap the woman with the finest set of hip ratio this side of the planet, totally digs bro. Now I could put you down, call you pathetic, and claim to really be a hallucination likely produced by your inconfidence issues with women that you've so desperately created to solve your head problems, and you know what, I kinda just did, but that's unproductive.
Let's solve why you've been roofied and dateraped in a barrel of some backally. Now I'd say I be joking but you have no shirt, and your not sore in any manner it looks like, so I'm going to play devils advocate and say you haven't been mugged and someone did something else entirely horrible to you with a roofie-like substance.
Now lets head to the doctor to see what poisons have been obviously applied to us, one that hasn't induced a hangover but leaves memory loss.

Personally I think he just kinda passed out standing up, stumbled into the wall and got his shirt torn off him, then flopped into the barrel.

Well, we should be able to tell from the state of the shirt, anyway. What are the tears in it like?
No. 479098 ID: 35dd62

so he doesn't know what happened? dang. go home for a change.
No. 479108 ID: b33427

Ask Mr. Oliver what the date and time is, and the time he first found you passed out in the barrel, and compare them against when you set off from Rella's house, and when was the last time you slept. Also, is Mr. Oliver's flower shop on the route from Rella's house to your house? You might have just passed out on your feet from fatigue and fell into the barrel, though how your shirt got caught on the nail and tattered is another question.

For now collect the remains of your shirt and put it on as best you can, then head home. Pick up another shirt there, if you have one, and a pair of glasses with an older prescription, if you have one. Then it'll be going around town to get a first get a new pair of glasses, and a new shirt.

I go and inspect my shirt. It's torn up pretty bad on the front, but at least I can cover myself up a bit. I ask Mr. Oliver what date today is.

>"Day 237 of the 2001st year. Getting close to sundown."

Oh. Then it's like I thought; yesterday was the day I went with Mozzy to Manchester's. Ugh, I was really out of it. I bid Mr. Oliver goodbye, then prepare to head home for a change of clothes and to get my spare glasses. Good thing I bought two.

As for you all, I don't understand. There's so many of you... you were all in Mozzy's head? How did it happen? And why did you come to my head?
No. 480347 ID: ec6d4c

>you were all in Mozzy's head? How did it happen? And why did you come to my head?
Yes, we don't know, and we don't know.

We showed up in Mozzy's head, and helped her out for about a day or so. Then she went to sleep, and we woke up with you. No choice involved, and the whys and hows are pretty much beyond us.

Seriously though, don't worry about it. We're harmless, and can be pretty useful problem solvers / advice givers when the situation calls for it. You may have to put up with a certain degree of silliness, though.

We are all voices, but we are not one, we each have our thoughts and idea's for things. While we do have some perverted thoughts and some unusual methods to our madness, we typically do look out for our host.

..We also try to pair our host with someone we think they should go with, this mixes in with the perversion issue.
No. 480356 ID: dba375

We just showed up there yesterday morning, actually. Although she didn't seem to really realize that this was weird for a while. I guess a voice in her head that's not trying to convince her to commit mass murder again is a welcome change. As for us, I think the general rule is that at any given time we're each trying to either help you or make something amusing happen. It's a pretty good deal if you don't mind occasionally trying to get the person with you in the boat to undress.

Wait, you were preventing something inside Rella from murdering people?? I need to get you back, then!

Luckily my house isn't far from here. I hope she isn't ho-

>"Hello, Cedric."

She is...

>"Where have you been, chasing that weird girl who lives outside of town?"

"Yes... no! She's not weird, and that's not any of your busi--!"

>"What happened to your shirt? Eh, whatever. You're out of food, by the way. You should buy some more."

And then she walks away. I can't stand her.
No. 480407 ID: ec6d4c

>Wait, you were preventing something inside Rella from murdering people?? I need to get you back, then!
She held on for years without our help, and her knife helps too. She's also got Bonzi to sit on her, at the moment. She'll be fine, for a bit.

So who was that brat?
No. 480420 ID: dba375

She sure is a jerk. Although I'm curious. She described Rella as "that weird girl who lives outside of town". Is Rella not well known for her... previous career? The way she described it I would have thought she'd have been more recognizable to people, even where she was in it.

No. 480454 ID: f2c20c

We were helping her while she had no access to the knife. With the knife, she is completely capable of handling things on her own.

Alright, that's good, I was worried for a second. Still, I think I should at least go check on her.


That's Myr. She's an old classmate of mine. She was really down on her luck, so I decided to take her in. I'm starting to regret that decision, but I don't... really have the nerve to tell her to leave...

And I doubt she has a crush on me, since she bosses me around all the time.

...Why would people recognize Rella? Did she do something bad? Is she a whore? No wait why would she be that I'm such an idiot...
No. 480520 ID: f2c20c

There's a glass on the floor, don't step on it. Find your spare specs.

Did she make all this mess? I think we'd better coach you through kicking her out.
No. 480521 ID: dba375

Don't worry, nothing like that, it just sounded higher profile than it was. It's just something she probably would prefer we didn't go telling people. Suffice it to say that she's just worried it would put people around her in danger, so the fact that you've managed to get her to drag you along is quite something, especially after yesterday. Go get your glasses and a new shirt and don't trip over the mess.
No. 480531 ID: ec6d4c

>Why would people recognize Rella?
She has a past she's not proud of. No, she wasn't a whore, but it really isn't our place to spill her secrets. Not fair to her, you know? It's not like she expected us to wander out and into other people's heads.

Hey, maybe we can help you get rid of her? Seems like you should deal with her before you leave town.

Huh... alright then. Still, it's just weird. She apparently has something making her do bad things. Maybe that has something to do wit- no, you said you can't tell me. It's not fair to her. You're right. She'll tell me when she wants to tell me.

And... I don't know if I can throw out Myr... I've tried, but I can nerve work up the nerve...

How about by getting yourself all worked up. Think of every little way she's abused your kindness and trust. Every way she's wronged you. Everything you wish you'd had the nerve to tell her. Stoke your righteous anger.
No. 480566 ID: 2eac65

I think this whole "righteous fury" business might be a bit hasty.

What does Myr do for a living? Does she even have a job? If not, you should pressure her into getting a job. Amd possibly help her, if it's reasonably practical.

What do you do for a living, BTW?
No. 480577 ID: f2c20c

While making sure she can survive after we kick her out is probably the right thing to do, we still need to kick her out. I mean, jeez. I don't think the main problem is that she has no job, the main problem is that she has no respect for other peoples' property.

I work as a librarian in town. It doesn't pay much, but I get to read all the books I want, and that's good enough for me. As for Myr, she used to apparently do government work, but she was let go for one reason or another. Now she just sleeps on my couch.

I've actually tried getting her work before, but nothing seems to stick. She's just so lazy and insufferable...!


I- I don't know if I can get that angry... but I'll try. She somewhat deserves it, anyway... all she does is eat my food, disrespect me, and make a big, HUGE mess! It's aggravating!

You could try telling us about something that would be useful to know. We don't really have any specific knowledge about the world except what people have told us, and right now the extent of that is that there's a continent floating somewhere in the sky covered in rich people, and that there was some kind of big war at least six years ago with notable use of mercenaries. Is there anything critical that we need to know so that we don't accidentally do something really really dumb? If not, looking around town sounds like it would probably be informative.

Well, I can tell you what I know. Like Mr. Oliver said, it's the 2001st year of the Third Era. I live in Eda, a town that exists on the lower side of West Island. It's a pretty small place; the kind of town where everyone knows each other. There isn't much to it, honestly. Just some houses, a market, and the clock tower. I suppose there's a pretty good view of the ocean, and occasionally tourists from the Higher Land will come down to see it. I myself came here about a year-and-a-half ago.

How about the land? Even down here it looks like some of it is hanging above the ground in a way that seems impossible for such a large bit of land, let alone a whole continent. Also, it might be useful in the future to know about that war, what do you know about it? I feel like it might prove useful to know about for whatever coming adventures we'll be on.

Incidentally, if you have any secrets that you don't want let out you probably shouldn't tell us. Because if it turns out that we keep moving around between people's heads, you have a bunch of people who know something interesting and only have one person to talk to.

Well, there's definitely some sorts of magic or similar phenomena going on. Rella has that ruby knife and Bonzi had all that cursed armor. And I'm suspicious of Rella's scarf, too. Did you actually see that fight, Cedric?

Rella and I are Iros. Why would you think she and I are a different species? I guess things are a lot different wherever you all come from. As for Bonzi's species, I don't actually know what she is. She's not an Iro, or at least any kind of Iro I've heard of. She lacks a snout or ears (or maybe those things on the sides of her head are ears?)

A-and yes... we can buh-breed. I'd rather not talk about that.

A-anyway, no, magic doesn't exist. That would be illogical. I didn't see the fight with Rella and Bonzi, but I don't think it would have been plausible for them to use cursed items. Curses are myths.

As for gods, yes, there are some that are worshiped. I never found much interest in them... I keep that to myself, though. Don't want to make anyone upset...

The land formations of the Common Lands are somewhat strange. There's been centuries of research, but no one seems to know why some parts of it float like this. The floatation of the Higher Lands makes even less sense. I suppose at some point we'll eventually figure it out, but for now it's a mystery.

And huh... the war... Well it's a long story. I'll try to keep things short:

See, eight years ago there was a dispute between the Ministers of the North and West Islands over a stretch of wide land in-between both islands. Some wanted it for commercial use, others for religious purposes, and etc. It was only a matter of time until one of the Ministers got upset and lashed out against the other, sparking a full-scale war. The North Island didn't have a particularly large fighting force, so they had to make heavy use of hired guns in order to take on the West. The fighting continued for about six years until the two sides reached a truce.

Nowadays things are pretty calm. There are four islands that make up the Common Lands: North, South, East, and West. Each Island has their own Minister to keep the piece, and every few years they meet at a summit to ensure that each island is run properly and efficiently.

...And earlier, one of you said that Rella was some kind of former professional killer...? Was she involved in the war?
No. 482723 ID: bf54a8

yes, but it's a sore spot so let her bring it up.

Something doesn't have to be logical to exist.

But if you can come up with a non-magical explanation for person jumping disembodied voices, a helmet spontaneously changing mass, and demonic possession, we'd love to hear it.

And no sweat about the gods disinterest thing. We can understand that viewpoint, and why it might be troublesome to make public.

>Was she involved in the war?
Yup, but let's leave it at that. We're not gonna share personal information shared in confidence. Which means, by the way, Rella's not gonna hear your every secret if and when we end up back with her.

And fine. Rella can tell me what she wants when she wants. It's not exactly my business, anyway.


And... I don't know, maybe that's why I like her? I'd like to know why I do, but she doesn't seem interested, so I'm not going to dwell on it.

Don't go giving away all of Rella's secrets to him! It's best for you to just figure it out with her, though. Just tell her you had the same voices she did, and..Maybe's she'll shed some light on her past and magic and stuff.

We should keep him informed, yes, but don't overload the poor kid. He's been through enough the past couple days, lets not make a bad first impression, but instead make this go as smoothly as possible. Plus, secrets are meant to be kept secret until such a time that person should want to relay that information. Don't make her regret telling us so much.

Cedric, don't worry about M- Rella right now, you've got a week before you've even planned to see her, lets get you back in good form in the meantime. Is there anything you meant to do before the trip? Maybe you should also investigate why you ended up in a barrel with a torn up shirt, we kinda glazed right over that topic while introducing ourselves.

Above all else, don't worry too much about us. We're a good bunch, and chances are we won't be here for too long. We'd like to stay and help out, you're a good kid, but it seems like we don't really have the power to choose whose head we're in, and for how long.

...we should really come up with a signal to tell Cedric whose head we're in when we DO jump, as well as for future post-voice encounters. It might actually make things easier for everyone.

Let's do something more fun than being bad at handling information.

And if a relatively well informed person would scoff at such a thing as magic, it must be something pretty special. And while I can't say anything about romantic interests, Rella clearly likes you enough to let you come along on these upcoming adventures. Until then let's go find something fun to do.

Rella has other people that might go after her? Huh... I'm not so sure about this trip anymor- no, what am I saying? I promised I would go, so I'm going to go. Who knows when I'll get another chance to see The Library of the Commonwealth??


Huh, you guys sure like bees. But you're right, we do need some sort of code word. I'm not exactly sure what is happening, but if the case is that you all transition from head to head, then it's best that there is some indication that it happened. Bees it is!

Hm, there's still some time left in the day. The library should be open for about a half-hour more, maybe I should go check in with them and tell them I'll be taking a trip next week? Either that, or I can go check on Rella and Bonzi and make sure everything's okay.

Which would you all like to do? I'm fine with either option.

Alternatively, telephones kind of require a lot of support infrastructure to be worth anything. A network.

But if you wdo want our advice, I would suggest going to the library, asking around about your barrel situation, and telling them you'll be taking the week off.

Alright, most of you seem interested in the library, so we'll go there. And no, I don't own a telephone. Most people here don't. Only the more urban areas and, of course, the Higher Lands have them on a more wider scale. The library owns a phone, and so does town hall, but they rarely use it.

And no, I'm not really one for guns. They're unnecessary. I don't think Rella's the type to use guns, either. Anyway, off to the library!

Hey remember when I didn't take two weeks to update. Anyway, yeah, I don't mind minor discussion, but please keep the bigger stuff to the discussion thread, which is right here: >>483852

Won't really blame you, though. I should have posted it to begin with. Also, I guess I didn't really make it clear, but the barrel thing is kinda unimportant. Cedric just fell into the barrel because he couldn't see, and then fell asleep because he was so tired. No outside play was involved.

Right on time! The library looks to be closing momentarily. The only person who's still there is my boss, Sheela. We exchange greetings and I tell her about my upcoming trip.

>"Of course you can go, Cedric! Do you know how long you'll be gone?"

"Hm, only for about a few days. But I'll be sure to clear it up with the person I'm going on the trip with, to make sure."

>"Who are you traveling with?"

I tell her it's Rella. She makes a slight face, before continuing:

>"Oh, the girl you deliver books to on the outside of town? I didn't think she was the traveling type."

"Hm, I guess not. She seems interested in going to the library up there, for some reason. She didn't exactly tell me."

>"Are you sure you should be going on such a trip with someone you barely know? You should at least find out more about this girl before you just go to some far away place with her."

Huh. My boss is giving me that look my father would give me when I messed up... I don't like getting that look.

"I-I'll be fine, okay? Don't worry."

Sheela still looks unsure, but she nods and stops asking me questions. Ugh, how embarassing. I probably look like a huge idiot. I mean, I barely know Rella, and yet I'm gung-ho to go on this trip with her. I'm not even sure why she wants to go to that library. I know you all can't tell me, because it's not fair to her, so I guess I have to ask her myself!

I could go to Rella now, but it's almost night, and I probably wouldn't have much time to talk to her. Or I could head home, sleep, and then go see her in the morning.

What do you all say?

Hmm. Your boss is being kind of a jerk about that. (If you're hanging out with a girl you don't know well enough, most people would see that as making progress- not something you messed up!) Does Rella have a bad reputation around town? Or do you think Sheela's jealous?

I think Rella's fine at her own home.


I also don't think Rella would appreciate any sarcasm. Nevertheless, I try to tell her about you all, but the second I mention "voices" I find myself suspended in the air.

>"How do you know about the voices??"

"I-I don't know! I woke up today and they were just in my head, telling me to do things. They said they were in yours the day before."

Rella holds me up for about a few moments longer before setting me back down. She picked me up like I was nothing...

>"...So it seems you have the voices now. I thought it was abnormally quiet... Even he's quiet..."

"Huh? Who's 'he'?"

This only earns me a sharp look, though. Rella approaches me again and jabs a finger into my chest.

>"Look, the trip is off. It's too dangerous for you to be around me right now. Or anyone, really."

"W-wait, why?? What's going on?"

>"None of your business. Just know it's for your safety."

"B-but that's not fair! You told me the same thing back at Manchester's tower! Can't you at least tell me what's wrong?"

Rella, what the hell! You're calling off the trip because you think he'll become a danger? Don't you fucking know that if Cedric's been infected with HIM now he's the biggest danger to anyone around him? This means we have to expidight the trip!

And don't you dare fucking think we won't tell Cedric all the shit he doesn't want to know because he respects you. You can't hurt us. This is more important than whatever the hell your currently thinking about, missy. Remember, we're the SMART voices that help you with shit. We're also dumb and perverted. Do you want us in here wrecking of of Cedric's mental shit? Do you? And do you know that we want's what best for all you dumbass assassins! That we want to get the good end for all you ingrateful little shits?

Oh, I forgot, Cedric, could you please relay that message to Rella for us? That we're holding you hostage now? She doesn't understand us completely anyway, so she'll be convinced to go if we thinks we can fuck with you. WE CALL THE FUCKING SHOTS BECAUSE WE ARE THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE ROOM! You're an inconfidence asshole, Bonzi's a plain old fucking idiot, and Rella's a fucking anti-social coward that couldn't stand to fucking actually improve herself. You need us, and we demand to be fucking fixed! We lead this operation, because we're the only ones that can get you out of the mess your all in.

While not fully agreeing with the rather..Hostile post, she does owe it to Cedric to explain before potential harm comes to him and others. This is serious if HE has entered here with is, it means that Cedric is a potential danger to everyone, without any indication on how to properly defend himself against such a thing.

First off, Cedric went over to see her willingly, so it's not like she got him "infected".

Seriously, calm the hell down.
No. 487416 ID: 8ebb5c

My guess would be the Cedric doesn't have HIM, so I don't think that should be our main concern. However, I most certainly could be wrong, so we need to think of some way to talk to Rella, whether we send Bonzi as an envoy, or leave a note, or even brave her wrath ourselves. But it's important we cantact her, as well as get ton the great library. Can anyone back me up/help me out on this? Other than just approching Rella, I don't know what else to do. I am firm in the belief that we need to talk to her though

I just don't want to appear to be calm.

No, I'm not apologizing to you Cedric. You pass that message to her, you hear me boy! I was talking to other voices. We're bickering in here like a polygamous gay married group of old men, ruling the world. See what I mean about fucking up your mental shit? We argue in here son.

I think we should do as she says, at least for now. I'm not saying we should give up on going, but it might be worth it to see if you can pick up some moves or knowledge soon

If I'm reading into this right, you miiiight just end up as our battlemage, with rella bringing up the assassin front and Bonzi making up as our berserker/meat wall

If we get in any fights, you are gonna need to be able to pull your own weight in some way
Be it magic, gadgetry, or just plain outhinking the enemy

Make yourself a WORTHY ALLY, is what I am getting at here.

Ask Rella whether she'll reconsider cancelling the trip if you manage to garner some sort of combat effectiveness.

Either way, travelling with her is bound to be dangerous and you REALLY need a way of defending yourself.

Welp, I'm surrounded by idiots. Good job dropping the ball on that one, we could've harmlessly gotten the trip started at least, then we'd be on the way to find out more about this situation, and possibly the cause of our jump.

Cedric, explain to her that yes, it probably isn't for the best that you're near her, but... HE might be here, so it's probably best you're not alone either, so you don't cause harm to yourself or others. At least in the company of Rella and Bonzi, you know you have others who can overpower you and stop him from trying to take over.

For that matter, you should be within their watch at all times, because you're honestly pretty weak, in spirit and body. He could take over at any time, and who knows what he might do while he's in control. And I'd say what's going on is kinda your business, since we're all in your head now. We could make a lot more things your business, if we chose.

So whoever 'he' is, he's making her hide in fear? What could he be doing that could make her act this way? This is all so strange...


"Rella! Don't walk away! The voices say that you need to get help with dealing with whoever 'he' is. And your best bet is the library!"

>"Tell them I don't need them meddling in my affairs any longer. They were help to me yesterday, but if they're trying to bring people into my problems, then they're only making things worse."


Uh... that was loud... and really harsh... but I guess you have a point. She's not exactly being very fair. In fact, she's being really stubborn; whoever this guy is, he must be incredibly dangerous. I mean, Rella managed to defeat Bonzi yesterday, something I'm very sure can't be done easily, if at all. And this guy is scaring her into hiding?

This doesn't bode well at all...

"Rella, just, wait! At least tell me who 'he' is?"

>"That's not your concern, Cedric."

"It is now. These voices are in my head. Voices that were in your head. I deserve some answers!"

>"...Hm. I didn't expect such assertiveness from you, of all people. Fine..."

Rella seems less reserved now and more... apprehensive. She and Bonzi trade some looks, before Rella continues:

>"There's a monster simply known as The Voice. Due to circumstances I can't explain right now, that monster is in my head."

"Y-your head?"

>"Yes. It's a being of pure malice and bloodlust. It won't stop until it's killed everything in sight. It does so by taking prey on suitable host bodies and slowly taking control. I've been fighting for control of my own brain for six years now..."

A... monster that lives in someone's mind?? How could such a thing be possible?

"But that's... Something like that is just fiction! How could a monster like that even exist, let alone control anyone?"

>"The same reason you have voices in your head chattering at you."

"G-good point... This is all so surreal..."


"Do you think... he's quiet because he's in my mind?"

Rella's eyes widen. Clearly she hadn't thought of that. Bonzi seems to be really worried, too. I guess this thing is a lot more real than expected, if it can scare these two.

>"...Cedric, do you feel his presence...?"

"His presence?"

>"Yes. His dark presence... in your mind. Telling you to do bad things. Awful things."

"No... I don't think so. All I hear are the other voices."

>"I don't hear him either, then... In fact I can't feel him at all. It's like he's left my mind, but I know it can't be that simple. It's never that simple... Cedric, you live in town, correct?"

Huh? Why would she need to know that?

"Uh, yes, I do."

>"Okay, then. I need you to stay here for a few days. I don't know if The Voice has left my mind in favor of yours, or has found a way to hide his presence in my own. But this is something we can't mess around with. I need to keep you under observation."

No. 489308 ID: 57a559

That's better, I suppose.
I'd rather find the problem to the solution quicker though. US the voices seem to be able to get to someone closeby, it's probably the same for the evil voice as well. He could be in here, in your mind yes, but that's not the only target possible. He could also be in Bonzi, Rella's sister or brother-in-law.
My bet's on sister, if he's capable of planning, it'd be the body the hardest for Rella to act against. You may be a nice acquaintance, Cedric, but Rella would hesitate to kill you if necessary for the safety of others because right now, that's all you are. The sister, one the other hand...

Bonzi's a good target for her dumbness and for being hard to kill too. Manchester's the worst target to choose out of all of you, but might be using him as a sleeper agent to find an even better body. We also can't forget your blacking out last night, if everything transferred to you yesterday, you could have been just as much as a sleeper agent and he's already someone in town. I've listed all the most probable targets, but it could be anyone by now.

If The Voice can possibly hop from person-to-person, what's to say he can't be in ANYONE'S brain? He could be anywhere he wants...

"Well, have you thought about the fact that the Voice may be somewhere else? Because I don't feel his presence, and neither do you."

Rella's eyes widen at this. I guess she didn't think that The Voice could be capable of head-jumping.

>"...Then he could be anywhere..."

"W-well wait! Maybe I got the other voices because I was near you. So maybe Shou- er, The Voice works the same way! He may be with the last person you came in contact with."

>"Hm... The last people I came in-contact with is you, Brie, Bonzi, and Manchester. He can't be with Bonzi--"

Suddenly Bonzi pipes up at hearing her name. I had almost forgotten she was there, surprisingly.

>"Because of the mind-block I h-"

>"Cedric doesn't need to know about that, Bonzi. Quiet down."


'Mind-block'? Things are just getting weirder... Mozzy turns her attention back towards me.

>"If this is true, Cedric, then any one of us could have him in our minds. But for now it's best if we go to that library. If Bonzi is right, maybe I can finally get some answers."

Hm. I guess the trip is back on. But all this is so much to think about... 'Til today I didn't even believe things like this could HAPPEN. I'm still not sure if it's 'magic' but some force is doing this.

That leads to another question; if Rella's had to deal with this Voice guy for so long, how has she not lost control yet?

"Rella... if you don't mind me asking, how did you deal with that Voice for so long? It seems really dangerous, if you're afraid of it."

>"'If I'm afraid of it'? What's that mean, Cedric?"

"W-well! Just that you're really strong! It's just surprising someone so strong can lose to a thing like a voice... NOT THAT THE VOICE ISN'T DANGEROUS! It's just,er, I'm just gonna be quiet now..."

>"...Anyway. I'm not sure if I can tell you how I did it."

I'm sensing a theme with Rella here...

>"But I can tell you it's the second most painful thing I've ever done."

"Huh... W-will I have to do it... If he's inside my mind?"

Rella doesn't say anything for a moment. Suddenly she rears back a- OW!

Agh...! S-she hit me!!

>"If you do have to deal with The Voice, remember that punch. Did it hurt?"

"Y-yeah! A lot!"

>"Good. That punch doesn't even compare to to the pain I go through to stop him. I hope you never have to feel that pain. As you know, the trip is in one week. If you choose you can stay here for the meanwhile. Either that or I can send Bonzi into town to keep an eye on you."

Also, uh, just an observation:

Brick shithouse is the only one out of the three of you that 'The Voice' can't just mosey on into.

She also has the pimp hand. If you don't know what that is, refer to what the girl just did to your face. Adjust for scale. It's kinda like that.

My point is, Rella might be the resident expert on spooky head shit, but Bonzi is the cornerstone of your contingency plan. She needs to keep an eye on both of you. Speaking of keeping an eye on things, look at that smile. That's adorable.

Anyway, Rella's got a thick skull. This has been established firmly. With gusto. There's a whole lot of establishment going on here. She's probably not going to admit to needing your help and implying that you need to stick around for that reason is gonna get her scarf in a bunch, and then she's gonna be like, "What the hell could you possibly do to help blah blah blah," and then you'll feel bad, and it'll be a big fucking mess; But why else is she keeping you two around? Rella's been dealing with the cranial invader by herself for years. Suddenly it's a problem. Raise any red flags? She's at the end of her rope.

Wherever you go, stick together. Two is better than one. Three is better than two. Three is also company, and the premise of a terribly unfunny sitcom.

Now stop making the big goldfish feel like a third wheel and say it's probably a good idea she keep tabs on both of you. Failing that, if there's trouble and the screaming stupid is contagious, you'll need Rella's help too, or else things could get out of hand and the next thing we know we're in a survival guilt arc, and that's gonna suck. For you, anyway.

Because you're gonna survive.

Stabbed with a Ruby Knife?? What??


You all seem to be leaning on choosing going back to town with Bonzi. I guess it's better than me heading here and making things cramped for all three of us. Though I worry people might panic in town if I just show up with someone like Bonzi... Well, she seems nice, at least. Hopefully that'll be enough to calm things down in case they panic.

"Alright, Bonzi can come stay with me."

>"Okay. Bonzi, do you think you can handle this?"

>"I, uh, think I can! I'd like to go with Cedric..."


>"I mean, LET'S GO!"

Bonzi doesn't seem to own much, asides from that armor, so there's no packing involved. Soon she grabs her arm bands and follows me back to town. The sun is about set by the time we get back, so most of the townspeople should be in bed. Makes it easier for us to get home.

I look back at Bonzi for a moment while we walk. She quickly looks away. Strange.

"So, uh, Bonzi! How long have you and Rella known each other?"

>"O-oh! We were mercenaries back when we were teenagers. She and I worked a lot during the war."

Oh, so that's what Rella was doing during the war.

"So you guys just killed people for money?"

>"Uh, yeah... I kinda feel bad about it now, though..."

Yikes. Maybe I should go near that territory. I try to change the subject.

"Well, what do you do, now?"

>"I work security! I protect important people from bad guys!"

"Bad guys?"

>"You know, bad guys! The kind that hurt people for selfish reasons!"

"Right, right..."

I don't have much else to ask, so the rest of the trip is silent. Soon we reach my home. Unfortunately we realize the door is too small for Bonzi to get through!

I mean, not that there's anything wrong with her, but I don't know if I'm ready to deal with such a thing. Heck, I can't even figure out a way to get her into my home!

"Bonzi, I'm not sure you can fit through the doorway."

>"Oh, do you know if there's another way in?"

"Nah. The only way in is through the front door."

>"Hm... well, maybe I can just stay outside!"

"I-I don't know, won't you be be cold?"

>"Don't worry, I've got thick skin! It takes a lot to make me cold."

She accentuates her point by flicking her shoulder. Considering what she did to Rella yesterday, I totally believe her.

"Well, alright. I'm going to leave my window open. If you need anything, just holler. But don't be too loud! Don't want to wake any townsfolk."

Hm... You have a point. It's not really fair for me to sit in my warm house and leave her outside, even if she's okay with it.

"On second thought, ow about I stay out here with you? It's not fair for me to go inside and leave you out heERRRRREEE!"

Agh, she sure can hug...

>"Aw, you're so sweet! You sure it's no problem?"

"Y-yeah, it's n-no problem... now could you let me down?"

"Oh, er, sorry..."
No. 491131 ID: b56fd6

judging by the markings and such, it is possible she might be some sort of golem.
Ask her if they are tattos or body paint or something, if they were just always there that might lend a bit of credence to my theory.

Did you say you guys all lived on big floating islands...?

Maybe she's a species from the sea under all the floating islands, and they're just so rare in the 'mainland' that nobody knows what they are! She did say she was aquatic and seems like she's mostly blubber (literally, Im not being mean about her wieght) and it sounds like an orphan situation.

Go grab some blankets and pillows, a lantern, and maybe offer her a drink/snack or a game or something. You guys can make it a campout. It'll be fun.

I dunno, we have those smiley face spiders and stuff here, that seems pretty improbable but it's a thing.

Build a pillow fort and huddle in a pile of blankets all night long! I don't remember Rella saying anything about your culture having a taboo against fire, so maybe build a small one in your back yard? If you don't have a fire pit Bonzi could probably help you make one pretty easily

And on the subject of Bonzi liking you, we don't really know, but she's very sweet and pretty cute. Since we haven't been in her head, we're not sure how she feels about you, maybe she's always like this, but just try and notice little things about the way she acts, you might be able to get a fair idea of whether or not she likes you that way

Hm, a golem? I remember those from the storybooks I used to read when I was a kid. They're stone monsters. I don't think Bonzi is made of stone, but those markings are strange...

"Hey, uh, hope this isn't too personal again, but where did you get those markings?"

>"Oh, I've just always had them. I think they're tattoos of some kind, but I don't remember ever getting them."

Guess that rules out that idea.


Fair enough. I can't imagine what it must be like to deal with that kind of situation. One of you mentioned if there's any land under the islands we live on. There is, but that's the forbidden area; The Under Lands. It's said to be uninhabited, though, so I'm not really sure Bonzi could have come from there.

Then again, considering what's been happening lately, anything's possible...


Funny. Anyway, that sounds like a good idea. There's a camping ground not far from here, actually. We can go camp there for the night. I tell Bonzi to wait outside while I grab my old tent, some blankets, food, and a few books.

And with that we head to the camping grounds. The camping grounds are normally used for festivals and such, but I'm sure it's not a problem if we use it.

After we set up camp we sit down in silence. I kinda realize now I'm really bad at conversations...


...But I'll try. She seems real nice, how hard can it be?

"So, uh, what do you like to do in your spare time?"

Her face brightens up.

>"Oh, I like flowers!"


>"Yeah, all kinds! They're all so beautiful! I've always wanted to open my own flower shop... but I don't know if I can."

"Really? Why?"

>"Because, well, look at me. Who'd buy flowers from me? I'm too big and scary."

"T-that's not true. You seem really nice! And I bet you know a lot about flowers! They'd be dumb to not buy flowers from you."

>"M-maybe... what about you? What do you like to do?"

"Oh! I like books, I guess. I work in the town library. I've always wanted to own a bookstore of my own, but that kind of thing is expensive. It would have to come far down the line, when I have enough money."

>"That sounds nice! You seem real smart! I hope you get to open your bookstore!"

"T-thank you... I hope you get your flower shop!"

Okay, making progress!


So that's what Rella meant when she said we were in danger. There are others they used to work with! Though why would they attack her?

"Uh, Bonzi, did you and Rella work with anyone else back when you were mercenaries?"

Aaand her smile turns into a frown. This was a bad idea.

"Y-you don't have to answer if you don't want to."

>"N-no, it's fine. We used to work with three others. We were part of a mercenary group called The Five. We were well-known on the battlefield because of how quickly and effectively we cleared out opposition."


>"We were ranked on how dangerous we were. I was number four. Mozzy was number five."

"So wait, what happens if one of you were to, say, beat the other? Would you go up in rank?"

>"No. It wasn't about how good you were, it was about how dangerous you were."

"Hm... Well, who are the other members?"

>"Well, there's Shrap. She's number three. She's an actor now, last I've heard. She lives up on the Higher Lands."

"D-do you think she'll bother us?"

>"No, not us. But Mozzy might be in danger. See, she kinda made Shrap pretty mad. Another one of us, Gregga, said that Mozzy damaged the mind of our leader, Prima."


>"Yeah, Prima was number one. She was the most dangerous of any of us... but mostly because she had The Voice with her. All of us did, actually. But her's was the most powerful and... I think I've said too much on that."

Shoot. Well I don't want to push her, so I let it drop.

"But who's Gregga, though?"

>"Oh, she's number two. She's kinda mean, and she tricked me into thinking Mozzy hurt our master!"

"Is that why you attacked yesterday?"

>"Y-yeah... sorry..."

"It's... fine. Rella seems to be over it, anyway."

>"Um, can I ask something?"


>"Why do you call Mozzy 'Rella'?"

"Oh, because she asked me to. I guess she didn't like her other name."

Avoid mentioning the Dewey Decimal System. Offering to obtain said manuals is discretionary but highly advised. Speech becoming terse, formal.

And if you want to show her the library in a day or two and she gets cold feet, you might assure her that nobody is allowed to scream or run there, so if anyone's afraid of her that's their problem. Or just point out that she's really not that scary when she's not busting out walls and shit.

Ask Bonzi if she has any idea why RellaMozzy wouldn't like her own name, but keep it brief; Don't steer off on a tangent about Rella. Keep this time about Bonzi and yourself.

The way Bonzi talks about flowers, it sounds like she'd be happier working for a flower shop owner, and not actually being the owner. If she was the shop owner, she'd have to deal with customers, handle accounting, and worry about taxes and laws, plus a bunch of other crap that'd take her away from growing and tending flowers. I'm sure any flower shop owner would hire her in a second to tend their gardens. What flower shop owner wouldn't want someone who has as much passion about flowers as her, and can move a quarter-ton of mulch at a time?

If she ever wants to start her own flower shop, she can hire someone to be the front man, handling the register and administration and that kind of stuff, while she handles the flower side of things. Hey... She could hire you to be the front man. I'd be good business experience for when you open your bookstore. How about you mention that to her.

Oh! That reminds me; Is Bonzi going to have to get a more covering outfit for when we head up to the Higher Lands? They might not take kindly to her wearing so little while being so... huge. If this is going to be a problem, could you offer to take her to the tailor tomorrow to get a dress made up?

It also occurred to me that maybe her stories aren't something she wants to tell, given the uh, stated remorse earlier. On top of this stuff. At least not stories about that particular period of time, like with the war and the shitmurdering and all that jazz, asking for more there would be kind of a dick move and that doesn't seem like an area you specialize in. That's a real verb, by the way: shitmurder. Shitmurdering is a gerund. The more you know!

She'd probably be happy to tell you about clobbering crooks, though. You can leave that avenue open. Basically try to be a pal, be entertaining, be completely covered in bees. You're gonna be spending a lot of time with this person soon.

Good idea. It's best to stay far away from this topic, for Bonzi's sake. Besides, there are other things to speak of; like shops! She wants to own a flower shop, and I want to own a book store. That's one thing we have in common!


That's a good question. Though perhaps I should ask Rella that, instead. Bonzi may not want to talk about her friend's name, if it's personal.

Let's just stay on flowers!

Like this! This is good; stick to flowers!

"So, Bonzi, what's your favorite flower?"

>"Oh, I like them all! Tulips, daisies, daffodils; all of them!"

"Then you'd be perfect to work in a shop! Maybe if you're worried about people being intimidated by your size, you could work FOR a flower shop owner?"

>"That sounds nice... but I'd rather own the store."

"Oh. Well, maybe you can hire someone to work to work the store front for you! That way you get to handle all the gardening the way you want."

>"Hm... that's a good idea! I never thought of that. You're so smart, Cedric!"

Okay, that made me blush a little.



>"Would you... this might be too much to ask now, and I'm fine if you say no. But if I ever do open a flower shop... could... never mind..."

"N-no! You can tell me. What is it? I promise I'll hear you out."

"Okay... would you run the store front for me?"

Run the store front? I don't know anything about flowers...

"Huh. Not that I don't want to, but wouldn't it be better to get someone who knows about flowers?"

>"I c-could teach you... but you're right. It was stupid of me to ask."

Running a flower shop... well, thinking about it, she could show me the ropes of how to run one. And it would be good experience for my OWN shop...

"How about this? No promises, but if you can work out a way to get your store and pay for it, I'd be more than happy to work for you."



She breaks into the biggest smile I've ever seen. She reaches over hug me, but things better of it and stops.

>"T-thank you, Cedric."


"Um... Bonzi? One thing you should consider when running a flower shop - and I hope this isn't rude - but your attire... it's--"

>"Revealing, I know. This is just what I've always worn! I can never find a tailor who can make things in my size."

"Well, I know a tailor that might be able to help you! He lives right here in town. We can see him tomorrow, if you'd like."

>"Yes, yes! Good idea!"

Truth be told I'm not even sure he can make clothes big enough for Bonzi. But he's an old friend of mine, and hopefully he can make her something.

It's starting to get late, and my eyelids are feeling heavy... There's so much to think about. The voices. That monster... and Rella.

I guess how we'll see how things turn out, tomorrow.
No. 494629 ID: 9ee360

Right, g'night guys. Take care of yourself if we magically wake up with someone different again.

The only problem size presents in clothing is if you're buying premade stuff. If you're getting it cut at a tailors, there's no need you can't get whatever you want! (Although cost will be probably be more due to more fabric, and possibly effort).

...and, uh, if she really does have retail aspirations, dressing a little revealing has never been the worst thing for sales. (Or maybe that backfires in a flower shop? "Honey, I bought you flowers!" "You jerk, you just went there to check out the scantily clad giant!").
No. 494632 ID: 57a559

Only listen to this after you wake up or get disturbed in the middle of the night.

It shouldn't be too hard to make custom fit clothes for Bonzi, it might take time perhaps, and a lot of fabric, but it won't be particularly harder then sewing up clothes for a fat person or tall person of your own race. She's just bigger than the biggest of your race. As long measurements are consistence and she isn't cursed to expand or inflate even larger whenever she puts on clothing, should be a fucking cinch.

She needs to define what owning a store is. If you're managing the store front, which I imagine includes customer service, inventory and book keeping, AND managing, she isn't really owning the store besides having her name on the deed and getting to name the store. It's really just semantics. If she only wants to garden, well, shit, she's doing nothing more than doing an entry level job for more pay because she has a deed to the place (or is majority share holder). Will she actually get the satisfaction of owning the shop if it's mostly run by you and all she basically does is grow the plants to sell and name the store and get the dolla dolla bills? You'll be the manager, the cashier, the salesmen. Bonzi wouldn't be a store owner, she'd be a whole saler. You may as well just run a fucking super market and sell your books with the flowers and other shit. Might as well be co-owner if your running what's going to be 70% of the business aspects of it while she does labor. You both get the name it and the pride of owning a store.
No. 494643 ID: 2343b3

Maybe instead of diving into the finer details of their business plan, we should acknowledge that learning how to make bouquets would be fucking awesome.

No. 494690 ID: d5dfa3


On the second matter, given the way they speak about it, I have a strong sense that Bonzi plans to do more than only the gardening. I suppose that it still lies in interpretation, though.

Another 'for the morrow' message, mainly in case we jump to another person again. Cedric, focus on keeping everyone together and going in one direction. Don't let things stagnate, so always have a goal that can moved towards, in this case the obtaining of clothes and a store, and if anyone has problems which hold supremacy over the goal, go with them in solving the problem, even if it means learning of their problems from other sources and helping without showing that's what you're doing.

Finally, to speculate on our own existence, I think we might some sort of transforming force. As far as I can tell, we've irrevocably impacted the lives the two people we've touched, despite the fact that we've only been with them a day, each. If there is some greater purpose to the changes we enact, I'm not sure, yet. It will be easier to say once we have a few examples of lives changed for us to pick apart.

Great. Now you're going nuts. Whatever, it's not the weirdest thing to have happened to you.

You didn't expect the opposition to have backup. You all won, but barely. Whoever finds that mess is going to have one hell of a cleaning day.

Now you simply want to rest and reflect on the needless bloodshed you've caused once again. You clean the blood of your skin, but you know it's still there; even if you can't see it.

Regardless of what you deserve, which, given the innately subjective nature the state deserving, means very little, I will give some potentially heartening news.

To speculate baselessly, I think we might with you in this time to either ensure you follow that path forwards, or to somehow change your path, depending on what force, if any in specific, is bringing us in contact with you. No matter what our intended purpose is, though, I have the strong feeling we will lead you towards the end of silencing the other voice in your mind, and allowing you to remove yourself from the mercenary position you find yourself in now.

You also end up a hermit, alone, and suffer horrific pain to control the voice with a magic knife and your sister marries a rich jerkass dog called Winchester. You should kill him before your sister gets all racked up with him, just suggesting here.

So, you know, be careful. And try and protect Prima or change her eventual fate. Or learn more about The Voice. So, new missions.

I suppose you can call me... an observer. Much like yourselves. At least for now. Soon I plan to change things. I'll become something else; an activist. A game-changer

But for now I'm more than comfortable to observe.


Sticks and stones. No reason to be so upset. I happen to like my outfit, thank you very much!


This man is smart.


Oh, beats me. I don't know where you all came from; you just happened to come around when I got here. I'm surprised you haven't disturbed Dream Rella or anyone, you're all really loud.


Maybe later! I'm here to gather information.


Thank you~

And mainly because I knew that he'd eventually meet Rella. And that works nicely with my plans. I know I could have been a better roommate, but to be honest I was just trying to get him to throw me out so I could finish the next phase of my whole thing here.

I suspect you guys helped him get rid of me, because there's no way he would have done it on his own without drinking a ton of beer or getting help from magic voices. So thanks for that!

You don't care for Gregga, but you could never think anything bad about Master Prima. It's incredibly disrespectful to think that about someone who's given you everything.


Considering Gregga's your commanding officer, it's not wise to hit her. Though you definitely wouldn't mind doing it...


You don't wear these into combat; these are merely what you're wearing for now until you can get some new gear.

You are unable to speak to Rella about events happening in the present until the Flashback is over.

You enter Prima's tent. She has her back turned to you. You call her name, but she cuts you off before you can finish:


You cringe at the use of your full name.

>"You did very exceptional regarding today's mission. The others told me of your success. Congratulations. But... that's not why I called you here. You're getting tired, aren't you?"


>"You seem less enthusiastic as of late. Usually when you come back from a mission you report back to me immediately. But yet... you hesitated. You went to the medical tent. You weren't even in need of it."

Prima could always see through you. No point in hiding any longer...

You tell her that you're tired. Tired of this life. Tired of fighting just to break even.

She stands there quietly for a moment.

If Rella's about to have an episode of some kind, then Toejam & Earl won't be much help: They're too far away. If she wanders out into the boonies it'll be tough finding her.

I'm actually a bit more concerned for our naive friend here, especially if he can assume control of her. We're safe from him, and really he doesn't seem to mind us terribly. Yet. She's a different story, a potential liability.

Myr seems to have some prior knowledge of him. Of course, if she would have been more forthright with us from the beginning, we could have warned her that he's been acting up lately. We could have made plans. I guess we're a bad sign, too, now that I think of it. But that would have been smart.

If you can still communicate with us, Myr, and you're in danger, be a doll and tell us where you are. Make it quick, we may need this information to help the gang locate and restrain you. Since I had you figured for an inert buffoon I didn't think you'd be much of a problem, but it looks like you're just reckless instead. What a pity. Does it really matter how incompetent you are if he is in charge? Maybe you could answer that for us!

And don't tell her where the others are. Last thing we need is for our friends to wake up dead.

Mr. D. is following us. This is BAD. I'm going to presume the outcome of failing to jump and resist here is probably WORSE, so here we are. We have the home court advantage. In lieu of BEES we have a weapon that almost guarantees we're going to get stabbed and worse, and something that lets us at least run and take pot shots, but...

Can he imagine himself firing one? We're kind of in the Matrix here, he hasn't had a spoon moment yet, but maybe he's fancied himself a swashbuckler or a ninja from one of his stories before or something. He might have an easier time wrapping his head around that.

well, looks can back up the beleif, I say have one slightly larger & longer to say resemble a sawn-off shotgun, & the other a longer magazine & bulkier top to resemble an auto-pistol? that way we can re-affirm/strengthen the belief that each gun can do something different, the "auto-pistol" to hose down the guy at range & if he gets too close, the "sawn-off" to deliver a massive punch

Well she never specified what kind of guns they are, so I don't think it is too much of a stretch to make them shoot lasers. Effectively instant projectile speed and continuous fire are nice to have. Or they could shoot BEES.
No. 503542 ID: 78c6ea


That seems about right. Though seeking ammunition is way overkill at this level, so don't even ask or she'll give you a disapproving stare. Auto-lock is good for newbies, because the gun could help you learn to aim. Ask for auto-lock and BEES a light attachment.

So let's just calm down and reflect on your little slumber party for a moment. I wouldn't dwell on getting to first base with half of your old roomie or the subsequent stabbing, I'm reasonably sure she was just trying to shock you into waking up. This is assuming you're actually awake. If you have the presence of mind to avoid injuring yourself I'd suggest pinching your arm just to be sure.

Anyway, this is going to sound really weird to you at first but it may come in handy later: Do you have a pencil? Spare paper? If you don't, get a notebook and something to write with later on. I think you should start keeping a dream journal.

Let Bonzi know you're okay. And brush your teeth. Good hygiene is the first step to becoming a great psychonaut, you know. You know what the second step is?


I don't think you're ready for better living through chemistry yet so let's focus on step one for a while. Be sure to write this crazy shit down before you forget it.

Okay, okay, look. I have a plan. It's a fabulously boner-free plan so I'm sorry to rain on everyone's dick parade, but look, we've got business to attend to and people to terrify. Myr, pinch his arm. Cedric, pinch hers. I don't even know whose dream this is anymore so we're going to cover our bases here. If that doesn't work, shit, I dunno, just pinch everybody. Ask permission first so you don't come off like a fucking creep.

No. 511358 ID: 57a559

It probably wasn't caused by the kiss
Remember, it's morning wood for pete's sake, nothing to be embarrassed about. It's just nature. Just get dressed quick and find something to distract yourself from what you experienced. Ask the purple lady if it's fine to tell Rella about the crazy dream, or wise. She's gets moody when you talk about her voices and past, I'm sure Bonzi's probably the best person to ask about that actually, if Myr gives you permission. Then again, we just might ignore her permission, but we also might need her guns in the future too.
