- 44th feather [video/action]
- November 19th, 2011
[Whoa, wait-- it's been cold recently, but could it be that Johto was frozen solid overnight? Fear not, it's nothing of sorts -- it's just Mahogany Gym, covered in ice as always, regardless of the season. As the video starts, it shows the Gym Leader, Pryce, in the middle of his standard dialogue:]
I, too, have seen and suffered much in my life. Since I am your elder, let me show you what I mean--
[...And then there's Crow, who apparently thinks sleeves are for losers and didn't bother to bring any jacket to the gym. The result of this is, not surprisingly, one (1) duelist shivering in cold.]
... Young man, are you alright...?
[Crow huffs in anger, desperately rubbing his arms for some warmth.]
'Alright'? 'ALRIGHT'? Are you fucking kidding me?! It's freaking cold in here! How the hell am I supposed to be 'alright'?!
[... and then he realizes something.]
Say, gramps... aren't you freezing? I mean, if you sit in here all the time, it must be bad for your health! Ever thought of retiring?
[Pryce looks taken aback by the challenger's... unique behavior, but before he has a chance to respond properly, Crow points at him vigorously with a grin on his face, apparently forgetting about the cold surrounding him.]
Here's the deal, gramps! If I lose, you're free to freeze your butt all you wanna, but if I win, you've gotta leave the gym for at least a few hours! Trust me, it's for your own good!
[The feed cuts off with an image of speechless gym leader.]
[When the video turns back on about 20 minutes later, Crow is already outside... still shivering and covered in snow, because he obviously forgot it's freezing outdoors, too. But isn't that the Glacier Badge pinned to his vest...?]
Crow, was it? I must admit, you were right! Today's weather is perfect for a walk.
[Pryce's voice comes off-screen, so Crow just glares in the direction that came from.]
[ooc: Badge comes with mod approval!]
