Hey, patrons, welcome back!  We’re finally going to finish off chapter twenty this week which means I’ll get to take some time to palate cleanse with some juicy one-shots.  But until then, Crunchy, hit us with that recap action!

“Top Ramen Instant Noodles, the only reward your little hero needs.  Ever.  Try our new Mushroom Orientation flavor!”

Excellent, let’s see what we’ve got this week.

Ashei awoke to the sound of a nearby shower and the absence of a person that had been sleeping next to her throughout the night.  She blinked multiple times to clear the sleep from her eyes as she lay on her back, staring at the ceiling.

“Why do the Zora have showers?”

How else are they supposed to rinse off after a swim?

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the wonderful world of Sonichu!

Previously, Hedgehog Of Color tried to steal a McGuffin, but a cluster of recolored Sonichus with elemental powers beat the stuffing out of him and took it back.

That’s… literally it.

And we’re back!  Two more chunks of this chapter to go and then I can spend a few weeks pallet cleansing with one-shots.  But until then, we’ve got some work to do.  Crunchy?

“Hmm?  Oh, apologies, I was just distracted by this article in the Zora Gazette.  According to this, a new class-action suit has been filed against WaterBnB Inc regarding unclear, misleading, and falsified occupancy and bed count information in their reservation system.  If successful, claimants would be compensated one pro-rated heroic feat per reservation.”

Huh, well I guess we don’t really need an unhelpful recap.  Let’s jump back into the highschool romance already in progress.

“Must we?”

Well, it’s what we’re here for.

Link nodded, suddenly hearing the click of the door lock behind him, and he stilled at the knowledge that he was sharing a room with Ashei.

Speaking of… where was…?

“What do you want to eat?” Came a voice off to the left of him.

Gah!  Shit, not only does this room not have enough beds, but it’s got a disembodied voice too!?

“Some have been know to pay extra for haunted lodgings.”

‘Some’ are bad with money.

Whew, here we are, the last chapter before my one-shot break.  And this chapter is certainly going to be something.  And by something, I mean a whole lotta nothing.

But first, recap!

“Affectionate tentacle beast looks for love in all the wrong places.”

Perfect.  Onwards to… whatever the hell this chapter is.  Well, after she’s done disclaiming and gushing at us in another author’s note.

Disclaimer: I’d make some sort of joke here, but I’ve run out of them. I don’t own any of this (except the plot and a few characters).

“Is she suggesting that the previous disclaimers were supposed to be funny?”

Well, she’s implying that they were supposed to be jokes.  Maybe they’re the kind of jokes that are supposed to be more sad than funny.

Also, Vikki, in order to own the plot you would have needed to create your own.

Yay, I’m back!

Yaaaaaaaaay.  *Twirls finger*

Sorry it took so long, I just had people (family mostly) requesting that I draw a bunch of things, and so that took time away from this.

We don’t care.

But, since this is now up I’m finally back in business, and so now it’s time to get a move on through some more character development and (hopefully) the Bottom of the Well!

Spoiler:  Her pacing is so slow she doesn’t make it to the side-quest.

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the wonderful world of Sonichu.

Last time actually a whole lot of plot-relevant shit went down. Chris and Sonichu discovered an ancient ruin (left behind by the Cherokees, of all people!) which contained magical pedestals capable of empowering Chris’s medallion to be able to turn him into Chris-Chan Sonichu and also giving him an expositional vision from the ancient Cherokee “king” he is apparently a reincarnation of.

By some weird coincidence Sarah, the girl Chris has a one-sided boner for, and Wes, the dude Chris has a one-sided hateboner for due to his having briefly dated Sarah when they were all in high school, are also reincarnations of ancient Amerindian (or in the case of Wes and his ‘Wasabi Clan’ heritage, possibly Japanese) leaders, and they too have hedgehog powers. They’re all prophecized to band together to defeat some kind of Ancient Evil that got released when Sonichu found the cave, but Wes is more interested in acquiring the Cherokian Crown, an artifact which Chris apparently briefly possessed and which has THE POWAH TO RULE THE WOOOOOORLD!!!!

He beat the tar out of Chris while the both of them were in hedgehog form and managed to swipe the Crown, but then Sarah showed up and nailed him to a tree with a lightning arrow.

Heyo, patrons!  Sorry about missing last Wednesday, unforeseen emergency tied me up most of the week.  Anyway, since it’s been a bit, I think it’s time for a recap!

“Hugging and then dungeon crawling.”

Yup, that brings it all back.  Anyway, we start off this week right in the middle of Vikki’s typical chapter acceleration.

The next room had several currents running in opposite directions, vortexes placed in various spots around the currents, and the occasional boulder that would sometimes pass through the water that didn’t seem phased by much. There were Tektites at the end of the room, and as usual the walls and floor were covered in shimmering blue stone.

I mean, water isn’t often phased by rock; usually the sun does that.

“Walk or swim?” Anakin asked quietly while Ashei was picking off the Tektites with her bow. “Do either at your own peril,” Obi-Wan muttered, “They’re both equally dangerous here. Just whatever you do, avoid the vortexes.”

“They are both equally dangerous?  Let us tally the hazards of either and compare.  The water has boulders and vortexes while the not-water has dead tektite remains.”

You could trip over a stray tektite leg and give yourself such a bruise!

“Swim it is, then.”

Welcome back to Wednesday!  As is tradition by now, I have more High School of Zelda for you all.  Crunchy, serve us up some hot recap action.

“The future is now, and also set in stone.  Or is it?  Wait, it definitely is.  Regardless, be mindful that evil is only easy to overcome when it wants you to win, or when it forgets to put on its jewelry before going out.  Evil is always most vulnerable when struck directly in the elegance.  Meanwhile, Link has become unstuck in time.”

Awesome!  Let’s see where this week takes us!  Spoiler: quite a bit of talking about the trial they just face-rolled.

Obi-Wan walked up next to Anakin shortly after the world had returned to focus. It seemed they were still trapped in an illusion, but Obi-Wan guessed that might be because either Link or Ashei had yet to break free of theirs.

So…

“Indeed.”

Illusions, right?

“Absolutely.”
