Cain: Hello, you two. How are you doing?

Ghostie: Grumpy.

Syl: Speak for yourself, peaches. I’m fantastic.

Cain: Both of these things sadden me. Regardless, Agent [GREY] should be showing up with Tea and Scones soon enough.

Syl: And pie?

Agent [GREY]: You called, good chaps? And Syl?

Ghostie: I’m not a chap!

Agent [GREY]: I could have sworn that was the one. My twenty-first century counterparts have such confusing slang.

Cain: Don’t worry, Agent. You’ll be a good English stereotype some day.

Syl: You can unsticky my wicket any time.

Agent [GREY]: Are you talking to my dear Admiral or myself?

Syl: Yes.

Ghostie: :facepalms:

Last Time, on the Marissa Games:

Cain: I hired the Big Lipped Alligator to find me an interrupting Cow, then payed the Cow to become a permanent Cast Member. It took a liking to Cerbersheep and joined him. Anyway, I also have Garrus here with me.

Cain: Welcome back! I’m here with the usual ensemble. Syl, Ghostie, and-

Goddess: *Stands up from tying Ghostie to a chair* Hi! Ghostie was being uncooperative.

Cain: *Glares at Goddess* and Interrupting Cow.

Goddess: Did you just call me a-

Interrupting Cow: MOO.

Cain: You don’t count, Goddess. So I replaced you with this Cow.

Goddess: Oh, you little-

Interrupting Cow: MOO.

Goddess: *Pulls out Plasma Pistol* Well, it’s about to be interrupting st-

Interrupting Cow: MOO. *Teleports down to wherever Cerbersheep is*

Goddess: *Puts away Plasma Pistol* What… the hell just happened?

Cain: I hired the Big Lipped Alligator to find me an interrupting Cow, then payed the Cow to become a permanent Cast Member. It took a liking to Cerbersheep and joined him. Anyway, I also have Garrus here with me.

Garrus: *Waves awkwardly*

Ghostie: Can someone loosen the ropes on my wrists? My hands are going numb.

Goddess: That’s the purpose, sweetheart. This way you can’t wriggle out.

Ghostie: I’m not going to be much good to you if my hands fall off.

Goddess: Fine. *Loosens the bindings slightly* There you go, sweetheart. For now, at least. Someday, I’ll control the fleet, and then you’ll be mine.

Cain: Goddess, please never say sweetheart again. It doesn’t suit you. Also, Ghostie, she does that creepy thing a lot. I’d suggest just ignoring it.

Syl: Yeah, that’s more my thing.

Ghostie: It’s also really creepy when you do it.

Cain: If she wants to be fake endearing, she should go agig’s route and say “honey”.  Anyway, let’s begin.

Cain: Welcome back, Patrons and Librarians. This particular chapter is even more… interesting than others.

Goddess: Cain, what do you know that we don’t?

Cain: Not telling.

Syl: Well, that’s ominous. Should we make him tell us?

Ghostie: :sigh: Are we ever going to get through one of these without someone being threatened with grievous bodily harm?

Cain: Nope. Not with those two here. Maybe I should replace Goddess with Garrus.

Ghostie: I’m not really “up” on the canon version, but I think we’re better off with the devil we know.

Syl: :elbows Goddess: I think she’s flirting with you.

Goddess: I’d be fine with that.

Cain: Just pretend she doesn’t exist. It’s rather effective.

Ghostie: Good to know.

Cain: Welcome back! I’m here with Goddess, Syl, and Ghostie. agig refuses to come back, Sem is still riffing Truth or Dare Surprise, and Dakota is doing my paperwork for me, so that leaves *Sigh* Goddess.

Goddess: I’m not that bad. *Sees look of incredulity on Cain’s face* Okay, yeah, I’m that bad.

Syl: You say that like it’s a negative thing.

Cain: It is. I swear, you two drive me insane…

Syl: Something tells me it was a fairly short trip.

Goddess: *Types something down on her datapad* I need to save that joke you just made.

Cain: Damnit. I don’t need to deal with both of you, and this fic.

Cain: Welcome, Patrons and Librarians, to another chapter of *Motions at the incomprehensible pile of shit that is this fic* this. Goddess, why did you just open the transcript file? *Checks* Really, did you just change the action I did to be that subjective?

Goddess: Maybe.

Cain: *Sigh* In other news, agig gave up. He just couldn’t do it.

Syl: Wait for me! :enters dragging Ghostie by the heels:

Goddess: Do you think you could shift a bit to the right? I’ve almost got a perfect angle. *Holds up a camera*

Cain: *Headdesks*

Ghostie: I told her I would walk. I think she likes being dramatic.

Goddess: Or maybe she just likes you.

Ghostie: There’s a scary thought.

Syl: Don’t worry, you’re not my type.

Genre: Humor/Adventure
URL: Chapter One
Critiqued by agigabyte’s Sem and Goddess

Sem: Hello, I’ve decided to take a small break from Truth or Dare Surprise, and do something a bit different. If anyone remembers that fic riffed a while back called “half-blood go back”, well, I’m riffing its predecessor today. It’s rather short, at about six hundred words and three chapters. The last chapter is an interesting (Read: Rather dumb) author’s note. Based on the title, you can probably guess what it is, but if you can’t, well, it’s a somewhat common crossover. “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” and “The Hunger Games.” Yes, this will be more interesting than trying to understand the English language. Let’s begin.
