Psyckosama wrote:The three let you speak. The princesses hostility seems to ebb off somewhat, though she still seems intensely bitter.

The General smirks and mutters, "More right than wrong kid." occasionally nodding or shaking his head.

The High Priest laughs. when you finish. "Extremely accurate though due to lack of information you fall apart in the last of your arguments. Allow me to respond. First, I will let you know that your summation of the political situation, while does clearly indicate your ignorance of the subtleties of the situation, of which I will inform you in a moment, but first we shall speak of the Hell Drake in the room.... the tests."
I nodded and started listening intently, not surprised at the holes in my theory; as he said I didn't know all the facts, so that wasn't really surprising.
"The tests are based entirely on spiritual compatibility rather than magical strength. In all honesty, the chances of you failing the tests, while there, are almost nonexistent compared to the general population. If we had to randomly sort through the population we'd depopulate entire mortal cities looking for the single worthy who doesn't die screaming the instant he sits on the throne. The summoning is specifically designed to summon individuals have a high probability of survival."

He lets that sink in. "The first test is simply. You sit on the throne of your own free will. If your able to spiritually resonate with the throne, you have passed the first test. If not it will react the way it does when any unworthy ass sits upon it. Violently reject you. Some survive. Most do not."

He pauses. "The second is the ritual... a magical potion brewed from the blood of First Emperor's unbroken line... that of the royal family... that turns you into the Demon King physically via magical adoption. It must be administered while on the throne and the process if highly energetic. It is an all or nothing. You either survive the magical backlash and become emperor, or you prove to be compatible and are consumed by its power. Death is painful, but mercifully swift."
Okay, that actually sounded easy enough, more like a DNA or blood test rather than some kind of aptitude test. Which meant that I had absolutely no influence over the outcome, so... yeah. Not exactly making me brimming with confidence.
"As for why the princess cannot inherit, that is sadly due to the lack of foresight on the part of the first emperor. He was human in life, a Demonologist of unequaled power who's strategic and political savvy allowed him to unite many of the various clans of the realm under his banner, and who's master of the dark arts allowed him to transcend humanity and become a demon himself. Sadly though, like all great men he was arrogant and he put no thought into what would come after. The throne is designed to allow him to control its powers and him alone.... fortunately though, the throne can be tricked into accenting new masters as long as they have a great enough similarity to the first emperor for it to recognize them. In this case, the Emperor must be a male of the direct imperial line from the unbroken bloodline of the first Emperor. Women literally cannot inherit the mantel of the Emperor."

"While anyone who is of a relatively pure bloodline can sit on the throne, and are close enough to use some of its powers, only those of the direct patriarchal line from the first Emperor via the direct line of Emperors may inherit, and even then, the adoption ritual dilutes the blood to the point that your children would be unable to inherit unless they were born of a daughter of a previous emperor..."

The princess tenses, then looks at you with a scowl on her face. "Me."
The last bit made my eyes widen in surprise.

"Oh," I barely managed to croak past the knot in my throat. That certainly explained her hostility even more; not only would said randomly-summoned schmuck sit on her father's throne, he'd also get to marry and impregnate her, all without the slightest bit of regard for what *she* wanted. In light of that, she's actually *remarkably* civil with me. I really should try and find a chance to talk with her in private soon, if only to offer my condolensces.

I spent the next few moments quiet, both due to thinking things over, but also trying to swallow down the knot in my throat. Once I managed, I turned my attention back to the High Priest.

"Well, that explains where the last part of my guesswork fell apart, though something makes me curious. You said that you could depopulate entire cities here without finding someone the throne would accept, but the summon would find one with a high chance of being accepted. And so far none of you really commented or otherwise showed surprise at my assumption that I was now in a different world. Does that mean previous emperors were from other worlds as well? Possibly including the first one?"

Moments later (time enough to put in replies) you enter the throne room and find a rather smug looking individual to be lounging on the throne.

"Oh, hello cousin..."

The Princess sneers in rage.

"How dare you..."

"How dare I what? Sit on your daddy's throne. Or is it your throne... oh wait, that's right, you can't inherit can you... after all, you're a woman and thus only good for that lukewarm hole between your thighs, right?"

With a roar of rage the Princess flairs in dark power.

"Princess! NO!" the High Priest exclaims.

She fires a massive blast of Black and Violet fire at the throne. It strikes against a massive shield and then purple lightening rebounds, consuming her in power as she screams in agony before being thrown back.

Managing to catch herself, but smoking from the attack, she falls to her kneels, painting... winded by the force of the strike.

"Oh, Ruby, you were always so easy to get all wound up..."

The High Priest steps forward and looks at the man on the throne. You can see his red eyes GLOWING with outrage.

"You idiotic fool. Until now this summoning was delightfully free of idiotic nonsense," his eyes narrow, "Your blood may be pure enough to sit on that throne but you will never be worthy of it. GET OFF!"

You see a pulse of energy discharge from the throne, violently ejecting the fool and sending him arching across the room like a missile.

Now you know why the first test is lethal. If the rejection blast doesn't get you, the stop at the end will.

As for him he crashes into the ground with bone crushing force then turns over, frazzled but seemingly unfettered by the display of power.

"Heh... that was so worth it!"
Blinking in surprise at the display I slightly leaned over to the General, asking quietly, "Going by the fact that he's able to sit on the throne and called the Princess 'cousin', I take it he's important. What should I know about him for now?"
Aside from the fact that I already had a pretty shitty opinion of him. Mocking a girl who'd lost her father, probably not too long ago, and essentially rubbing the fact that she'd have to bear the children of a stranger into her face with such glee? Yeah, I pretty much decided then and there that if I ever had any assignments that were extremely unpleasant and/or came with a high chance of death-by-gratuitous-and-horrific-violence, this guy would get to go on them about eleven times out of ten.

I also made a mental note that the Princess was apparently named 'Ruby'. Or maybe that was just something he used to rile her up, and her actual name was different. Considering the display, I wouldn't put it past this guy, though I couldn't really think of a reason why 'Ruby' would have been offensive.

She just looks at you.

You get the feeling she's almost but not quite insulted by the idea that you ever had to ask.
"No need for that look dragonness, it was a honest question. As no matter how strong a single person my be, they can and bought down by a large enough force. As if not, I would be here right now, no?

An considering that each of the others are suppose to warriors of note too. I wanted to see how you would take such a question."


"It's not submission to cooperate with a leader for the sake of ones own self-interests. My people have benefited highly from our alliance with the line of the demon kings. For that, we give you our trust."
"True, but those lines can always blurr, as all things do over time.

But that kind of talk of philosophy should be for another time, as the current matter at hand is more important and I really should stop side tracking things. Though if after this you would like to come for a talk from time to time, I would welcome the chance my Dragonness. As I feel such talks would be enjoyable one."


"Sadly," she repeats. "Though if these two do not meet your personal standards I could dispose of them for you..."

They both look on and their eyes narrow. Moments later they're armed.

"Ladies please!

There will be no more fighting here, as we all know what the outcome of such a battle would lead to.

So stop acting like children and lets finish this with words and wit, as I know everyone here is more then just a beautiful body and a strong arm. So prove it here and act with the dignity your stations demand."  

She turns into a dragon shaped pryer of flame for a moment and then this steps out as it fades...



The two sisters blink and lower their weapons and look a bit less sure of themselves.

"Does your father know you're here?"

"Of course. He considers this ritual as backwards and idiotic as I do and approved of my plan..."
Ah, that explains a lot more here in her personal power and mindset. She is both a dragon of great power and station.

"So then my Dragonness, I take it by the sisters reaction that your are the daughter of one of the coming clan heads to the castle? An if considering your barring, state of dress and the real fear you put in the sisters, you would most likely be his first daughter I would wager?"

Actually the first sister is still energetic enough to fight.... damn these oni have STAMINA.

Plus the one then the other factor lasted about 3 minutes. Seems they do their best work as a team... Wink
Good, then I'll have Kasho leave and fetch the staff for the others and a clean set of clothes for myself.

"I will probably report my failure to my father..."
"Probably, but not will. Now that is a interesting choice of words there my Dragonness. So then I take it that you still believe that you have not completely failed then and that there is still a chance for you to complete a goal here that would like to do.

Interesting, I look forward in how you will attempt to gain your goal here in this exchange."

she looks at the two. "Though considering they were able to slip past the peerless senses of a dragon, I will say they are at least semi-competent which is more than I can say about the rest of the idiots I fought."
"Truly, all the other comers fared that badly?

Damn and here I was lead to believe that they would have been of better skill or is it that you are just that much stronger in all respects then the rest I wonder?"

The eldest blusters, "Have you any idea who WE are?"

"Yes, the Commander Sisters, two up and rising stars of the Red Oni clan. Capable enough for half-breeds, and competent in battle to a point, though your failure to win a deceive victory at the Hadies Rift is one of the factors that lead to the death of the previous Demon Emperor...

They begin to seeth. "Are you claiming that was OUR fault?"

"No," she replies with absolute calm, "Just pointing out you are now the flawless military geniuses that you have no doubt presented yourselves as. As for your combat ability, if the Emperor so wishes, I would be... pleased... to test your skills in battle."

They look at each other and then back to her. "We're good."

"I thought as much..."
"So my Dragonness, before you felt the need to cow my maidens.

Tell me, what would you suggest I do now? As I know you have advice here and am curious to hear what it is.

"We're not aware of the details of the ritual. It's kept close to the chest of the royal family. All we know is that it involves a summoned human."
"Ah then I never said anything and you never heard anything...."

The eldest smiles. "While we are both highly capable in all aspects of personal combat and are exprienced commanders... I specialize in Long Range and my darling younger sister is a close combat specialist."
"Interesting...weapons of choice?"

"A week, master."
"Good grief! And no one declared me dead? So...where is that Priest at? I have a few questions I need to ask him and a few choice works about that liquid PAIN he gave me." I bare my teeth at that one. The least he could have done was tell me what the hell he had planned for me.

I intend to. Along with a lick and a nibble. ^^
Heh. Enjoy!

"And you'll have your chance to demonstrate before too long, I assure you," I reply quietly. "But for one, despite our arrangement I would still feel more comfortable if the little serpent is not left unattended. So you get to keep an eye on her, and make sure she does nothing ill-advised towards myself or your sister."

Then I grin wickedly. "And for another, I would be quiet pleased if you made her squirm."

"Or you could show some inventiveness ..." I trail off, still grinning. "Wouldn't do to make it too easy on you. Now get to it."
She gives the snake woman a downright sadistic smile...

"I'll wait!"

"Oh yes, you will..."

the elder sister starts to walk towards her when you hear an explosion outside te room. Moments later an Arachne comes flying through the door and I mean through to lay on a boneless heap against the wall, letting out a low and pitiful grown of pain... alive abet barely...

Yet.

That's something, right?

Did that mean the emperor had had multiple siblings and the priest was one of them? Or he might be the princess' uncle not on her father's side, but her mother's, which made me wonder what her fate was. Dead along with her husband?

With a brief shake of my head, I dispelled the train of thought, and instead focused on the situation at hand, studying the throne in detail as I approached. Once I reached it, I briefly hesitated, before seating myself on it.

The elder sees his and quickly places a hand on your shoulder

The younger sighs in relief.

"Thank you master, but I don't understand why she's even hear. Dragons cannot become Handmaidens."

The Dragon looks inside and growls. Then speaks with a sweet sounding feminine voice. "It is because this ritual is idiotic. The Emperor should chose his own handmaidens and not be tricked by the first harlots to infiltrate his bedchamber."

Kelenas wrote:Yeah; definitely going to have to try and talk with her later.
You do that.

Okay, that was actually even more interesting. If the first emperor (and anyone else they'd summoned) had been from Earth as well, it would have explained the whole bloodline-thing. The fact that they apparently all came from *different* worlds put a bit of a crimp on that theory, though.
You think it would really be that simple?

I nod at the General in thanks. This was no doubt going to be useful to know in the long run.
He nods back.

Though he seems to have a reason...
"He's also an asshole" the general adds in a moment later.

It... tingles.

The priest walks up and holds out a vial. "Normally we add this to wine, but as you're not a fool we're tricking. Good luck."

The cousin grins darkly. "I wonder if this one is going to explode like the other three?"

Okay, that was actually even more interesting. If the first emperor (and anyone else they'd summoned) had been from Earth as well, it would have explained the whole bloodline-thing. The fact that they apparently all came from *different* worlds put a bit of a crimp on that theory, though.
You think it would really be that simple?
Would've been nice if it was, but I didn't really expect it, no.

"He's also an asshole" the general adds in a moment later.
That gets an amused snort.

I then nod at the High Priest, and begin walking towards the throne, while still thinking things over. Hadn't the princess called him 'uncle' before? Did that mean he's the previous emperor's brother, and grin-guy's father? No; the General had referred to grin-guy's father as "late", ie dead. Did that mean the emperor had had multiple siblings and the priest was one of them? Or he might be the princess' uncle not on her father's side, but her mother's, which made me wonder what her fate was. Dead along with her husband?
Something to ask.
Definitely.

With a brief shake of my head, I dispelled the train of thought, and instead focused on the situation at hand, studying the throne in detail as I approached. Once I reached it, I briefly hesitated, before seating myself on it.
It... tingles.

The priest walks up and holds out a vial. "Normally we add this to wine, but as you're not a fool we're tricking. Good luck."

The cousin grins darkly. "I wonder if this one is going to explode like the other three?"
[/quote]I take the vial and the priest's well-wishing with a nod, "Thanks."

I briefly study the vial - or rather, the liquid in it - before opening it, and fixing the cousin with a sarcastic smile. "Maybe you should step closer so you can get a better look."

If being catapulted from the throne didn't harm him, I doubt me exploding would, but it would end up with him covered in my gore which would probably give the other three, especially Ruby, a bit of a laugh at his expense.
Somewhat suprised at my own morbid thoughts, I put the vial to my lips, and with a mental 'Well, here goes nothing.' tilted my head back and let the liquid run down my throat.

It tastes like blood and hits you like a ton of bricks.

You feel energy arching into your body from the throne. And it's not the good kind of energy... less ABSOLUTE POWER and more "Gee, who forgot to disconnect the lightening rod before putting it up my ass"?

If feels like every cell your body is being individually roasted.

Absently you can hear someones screaming, and he's got one hell of a set of lungs on him.

Wait.

That's you.

And then blissful unconsciousness. Smile

You wake up feeling groggy as hell finding yourself face down in black silk sheets.

They summon their arms.
I pick my jaw off the floor from where it had dropped. "Niiiiiiicccccceeeeee."

"This is rather standard... so would you like to bind us now?"
I shrug, "I see no reason why not, though....what do I need to do and what is this going to do to the three of us?"

They pause, "And don't EVER tell anyone your true name. It gives them power over you."

"Yes, you may ask. You won't necessarily get the answer you want, but you may ask."

And I make a mental note to learn whether or not there's a male version of those particular magics.

The younger sister is starting to sweat a bit.

The elder sees his and quickly places a hand on your shoulder

The younger sighs in relief.

"Master, please relax..."
I take a moment to center myself ... and by center, I mean bury my face in the younger sister's hair and breathe.

Obviously, someone needs to rethink the specifics of the venue used for this kind of thing.

And probably won't for a while...
grumblegrumble

"Thank you master, but I don't understand why she's even hear. Dragons cannot become Handmaidens."

The Dragon looks inside and growls. Then speaks with a sweet sounding feminine voice. "It is because this ritual is idiotic. The Emperor should chose his own handmaidens and not be tricked by the first harlots to infiltrate his bedchamber."
I close my eyes. Make sure I'm calm and centered rather than, oh, shouting the next part. Then open them and stare at the dragon in frank disbelief.

"And you thought it would be a good idea to escalate an already chancy proposition of a conflict happening in the vicinity of someone who, I've been told, could have his considerable amount of power go utterly berserk in response to strong, intense emotions. Like surprise, fear, frustration, etc."

I cannot believe I am going to say this, and the fact that I'm calm as I do so probably attests more to the therapeutic qualities of comely oni maidens than my own levelheadedness ...

"While I cannot help but agree with at least part of your sentiment ... your planning. It needs work."

"I would find that pleasing as well."
"Then I look forward to such talks later."

"Of course, m'lord."
"Good."

"I am the Grand Princess of the Fire Dragon Clan. It would tell you my name, but you would not hear much of it, and even if you did, you would not physically be able to pronounce it."
Really, what's it with dragons and unspeakable names.

"Well then would you prefer me to call you by your title, another name or is Dragonness fine for you for now?"

"My goal now is to leave a positive impression upon you."
"Well you are doing well enough on that front right now, though I'm willing to bet there is more then just that as your goal here.

As no one here seems to only aim for one thing."

Again you get that look.
An I give her a shrug back and move on.

"Red Oni are passionate and arrogant and need to be reminded their place from time to time less they lose sight of their limitations."
I simply rise a eyebrow at that.

"At this point I... excuse me..."

She looks up.

"It is too late.... show yourself before I incinerate you."

You hear a sign and this drops from the rafters.

Oh come on now is it really that much to get like 5 minutes to talk before some has to but in here and now it this case literally fall from the ceiling?

"Well I take it you have been here long enough to know what's going on here then?

An so please take a sit by the sisters as I get to you later."

Then back to the dragonness.

"So before we were interrupted, you were saying?"

Pause.

You're dead sexy. The kind of thing that has maidens leaving SLIME TRAILS... and you have demon horns.
Huh, okay. The horns are probably going to feel... weird, for a while. The "suddenly becoming dead sexy" bit is something they probably should've mentioned. Would make for a great sale-speech.
"Good... erm... what time is it? And how long was I out?" I greet them instead, swinging my legs out of bed to stand up and receive the platter. I *was* feeling a tad peckish, what with being summoned painfully, then similarly painfully being knocked out again after being confirmed as the new FUCKING DEMON EMPEROR!
Okay, that was going to take a bit getting used to, but I liked the thought.
"A week."

They present you with the food then kneel.

"Master, we sisters have been honored to chosen to serve you as your bodyguards and handmaidens. Please accept our true names and our status as your loyal and willing slaves..."
"... I've been out for a week?" Wow, that ritual, potion, whatever, must have packed a hell of a punch. Part of my mind wants to go on a tangent, but I reign it in quickly, and instead focus on the situation at hand; the two hot demon-girls in front of me who had just offered to become my slaves.
Almost immediately I want to tell them to stand up, and that I didn't want to have any slaves or servants, but I also clamp down on that, and instead try to think over the situation logically.
I'm the Demon Emperor now; alright. But positions like that normally come with a certain image that's expected to be upheld, which more often than not includes uncomfortable clothes, enough real estate to require its own postal code, and, of course, servants.
Some of the other summoned emperors must have come from worlds which were unfamiliar with, or against, the idea of slavery, yet those two still referred to themselves as such, so chances are that this came as part of the image - especially considering how 'ritualized' their proclamation had sounded, and not something that could just be declined or easily changed, and trying to would most likely just cause delays and confusion, resulting in a large waste of time I could have put to much better use, especially if I want to take my new position seriously.
So, the best choice probably is to go along with things for now, and if I really want to, I can look into doing something about their status later, while just treating them as well as I can for the moment. So, I straightened and fixed both of them with my look.

"I accept your true names, and your status as my loyal and willing slaves. Rise and introduce yourselves."

Well, its basically you're still you... as drawn by Jack Kerby.

Did it ever.

Hot is an accurate word.

Probably for the best.

Heh.

We must give you our True names and state our submission and then you must place your hand on our foreheads and accept it in the manner of your liking."

They kneel.

"My true name is Kasho and I submit myself to you freely."

"My true name is Haisoksu and I submit myself to you freely."

The Spiderwoman scowls at that.
Well not everyone can be a winner.


"Of course, your majesty..."

You don't like that smile.
"Try not to make it to tight miss, as I would rather her not freak out once she awakes ok."


A, not The. You expect a dragon to only have on plan?
OC: Oh I know, but there is plan A at least.

"I was hoping to become a Handmaiden but... I had to find away around Lady Plasma Breath... then I found they'd beaten me to the punch...."
"Well I sorry to say those roles are filled and while I will say you are a rather ravishing drider. I'm not really looking to start up a harem at this point, as there much to much I don't know right now and I would rather avoid any problems that can be sparked by such right now until I'm ready to deal with such.

Though you were cunning and skilled enough to get by the Dragonness. So if you would like to give me your title, I'll be sure to keep you in mind.

Order a healing potion?
Yes, though I make sure there is enough for all the wounded ladies either in or outside my room. As the is little point in letting anyone die here if they can be saved.

Skip to the next morning?
Sure, as most of this was just going to most likely be a back and forth. An I am looking forward to getting to the heart of the matters here.

She looks amused.

"Story of my life..."

"Try not to make it to tight miss, as I would rather her not freak out once she awakes ok."
She pouts.

OC: Oh I know, but there is plan A at least.
Plan A? More like A plan.

"Well I sorry to say those roles are filled and while I will say you area rather ravishing drider.
"What's a Drider?"

I'm not really looking to start up a harem at this point, as there much to much I don't know right now and I would rather avoid any problems that can be sparked by such right now until I'm ready to deal with such.
"Can I remain? Please? I can serve you well..."

Though you were cunning and skilled enough to get by the Dragonness. So if you would like to give me your title, I'll be sure to keep you in mind.
"I'm noone of consequence, sire..."

The demons look over her. "Low born spider demon."

"Probably nothing more than a thief..."

"Probably doing this to avoid being eaten by one of her superiors."

"S-shut up!" she flusters.

]Yes, though I make sure there is enough for all the wounded ladies either in or outside my room. As the is little point in letting anyone die here if they can be saved.
The bodies and wounded are removed.

Sure, as most of this was just going to most likely be a back and forth. An I am looking forward to getting to the heart of the matters here.
The next morning you're greeted by an obvious maid... horned girl with a servants dress.
"Good morning, sire."

(...weren't they kneeling already?)

...well, that probably could have gone better. First attempt at behaving like an emperor should, and already I made a mistake.
Mentally sighing at that, I do as they told me and gently place my hand on their foreheads in turn, cautious of their horns.

"Kasho, I accept your submission. Haisoksu, I accept your submission."

I take a step back so they can get up if they want to, now a good deal less sure of myself, given that reminder of how little I knew of the local customs and rules. Though it probably doesn't fit with the "image" for the emperor, ultimately I decide to just ask rather than risk making a fool of myself even further.

"I apologize for my lack of knowledge regarding the proper rules and customs for this; is there anything else I have to do to finalize this?"

You feel... something... a connection.

They smile and begin to strip... and by strip I mean striptease...
