Well, let's try something new then ...

I _let_ it get to me this time, deliberately ignoring what I'd learned of circumstances and focusing on the emotional impact of the situation. Her attitude since the beginning, the barbs and remarks, the clear expectation of _failure_ she seems to hold.

I gather that around me as I pace. One step, two, three ... let it grow, nurture it, gather it until I can almost _taste_ spite at the tip of my tongue and coiled within like a flaming serpent.

I tear my hand through the air in a claw-handed swipe, the simple and direct act of lashing out in defiance, letting the gathered emotional charge flow.

Do you want to?"

No, not at the moment. I think I'll wait and see if she decides to mention it or not.

Though you get the feelings she's more here for the princess. They seemd to be trading the occasional barb.

Hm. But am I able to tell whether this is because of genuine antipathy, or a case of them being Vitriolic Best Buds?

"I've sent the nessasry feelers but it will take time for our contacts to get back to us."

OOC remndthe GM what this is

Well, supposedly the Demon World has no coffee and during our first meeting the Princess said she'd heard about something like that from her clan's trade contacts in the human realm. I asked if she could look into that for me and acquire some.

"Well, I appreciate it. I suppose it's a bit of an acquired taste, you end up either loving or hating it."

Decent. You can tell he was trying something new, but it is rather good.

Oh. Good. For a minute there I'd been afraid I'd made a terrible mistake.

I apologize for calling her so suddenly but I wanted to meet with my new kinsfolk and I was told that she had a warmer relationship to the Princess than say the Duke.  I also feel that having an at least cordial relationship with people with jobs like her would be beneficial and it seemed that head of the castle staff seemed one of the best places to begin.  Once again my apologies for my brusqueness.

She simply nods. "I agree, my emperor and thank you for summoning me all of this way to let me know that such a relationship is valued. I must however ask if there is anything else which you wish to discuss as my tasks are many."

Your not sure if she's being dismissive, sarcastic, or means it and just is that dedicated to her job.

You almost not quite manage to not humiliate yourself.

She diverts it casually. "Claw strikes are good for dealing with larger groups or swift but weak targets. More difficult to dodge with a somewhat higher area of effect, but less power."

No, not at the moment. I think I'll wait and see if she decides to mention it or not.

The Dragon looks over and glances at the naked sister and you. "Then I believe I have failed to prevent you from bonding handmaidens?"

Mhm.

I don't stop. I follow through, making a full turn following the arc of my arm, pulling, focusing and feeding the remnant flames I drew in and then shoving them forward. I use the growing frustration at being so summarily dismissed.

Vicious circle time. I try to picture a Macross Missile Massacre in my mind and summon up a multitude of projectiles to do just that. Basically? Saturation fire. Too numerous to dodge or deflect them all, but individually not that powerful. I want to force her to actually block and lock down her movement. If that works, I intend to try and use a burst of heat to propel myself forward and close the distance in order to attack from point blank range.

"You seem to be reasonably intelligent and we have great hopes that you will prove to be competent."

"Time will tell, I suppose. It's one of the things able council may foster." I raise my glass for a moment, then down it. "Especially given the upcoming clan gathering."

The Ogre is nowhere to be seen.

And now I'm worried.

You were at home, minding your own business doin' whatever. Reading Fanfics, playin' XCOM, jackin' off to pictures of neon colored adolescent equines... don't know, don't give a damn.

But then you're hit by an intense sense of vertigo. It's not a pleasant one for sure. If anything it feels like flushed down a toilet and through a drinking draw while a Scandinavian Black Metal band plays the star Spangled Banner in German, backwards, in your head, using cannons as percussion instruments.

It's agonizing, it's distracting, its bloody obnoxious, and then suddenly it all ends when you're shat out, and yes, it did feel like you fell out of somethings ass, onto a hard stone floor far too hard for comfort...

And as you try and get your bearings you turn over with a groan and find yourself looking at...

And now I'm worried.

If you asked. "Last time I saw him he was running from the room screaming with fire shooting out of his mouth. I warned him, but he refused to listen."

The demon princess actually blinks. "How did you manage that?"

"He claimed that you should always taste your food, but I said that this was an exception to that rule and for good reason. I added a special ingredient."

The dragon princess smiles. "You've done wonderfully I must say. This is the richest heat I've ever had. Would you share the secret ingredient?"

"I put alchemical fireball potion into the curry as an additive and asked one of the maids if she'd be willing to give it a taste. They approved so here you go."

OOC for sake of argument this is you and the two princesses... makes it easier.

"Would you be actualy capable of innacting them though?"

She holds up her hand. A sphere of violet and black fire forms.

"Behave!"

She glares at the priest and snuffs it out.

Rollan.

"Be weary. It is easy for a unwary emperor to become compromised by their subordinates. I suggest you look up the 18th as a warning."

"Noted. But if I don't take the chance I'll become just another tyrant with an overblown ego and living in constant fear of his own shadow. I'd rather not use Palpatine as my role-model, thanks."

If you asked. "Last time I saw him he was running from the room screaming with fire shooting out of his mouth. I warned him, but he refused to listen."

The demon princess actually blinks. "How did you manage that?"

"He claimed that you should always taste your food, but I said that this was an exception to that rule and for good reason. I added a special ingredient."

The dragon princess smiles. "You've done wonderfully I must say. This is the richest heat I've ever had. Would you share the secret ingredient?"

"I put alchemical fireball potion into the curry as an additive and asked one of the maids if she'd be willing to give it a taste. They approved so here you go."

I suppose the halfing had more sense. That or there's a pile of ash somewhere and I'll need to find a new cook.

I thank her for that and unless she feels there are any in the palace that could be immediate threats that she'd like to warn me of now, then I'll dismiss her and thank her for assuaging my concerns. Now on to the next agenda. Learning how to talk with the clan lords and not accidentally insulting them.

They both share a look. The Dragon chuckles and cuts them off before they can reply.

"They are the Elite Commanders of the Oni Clans's principle armies. While technically they did not have to request the right to join this competition, doing so without their lady's agreement could be seen as something of an insult. Or a disgrace to the clan had they failed," she pauses, "Though at least they're competent. A higher grade than your standard handmaiden."

Or both. Or he's a better assasian than you first thought. Either way, by the standards of the demon world you keep what you kill is a thing...

Actually, there is one thing. Her oath is to the royal line, not any one emperor. You will treat her cousin properly.

"Ancient City that was the capital of one of the most successful military empires in my world's history.  Famous for iron discipline of their heavy infantry, their enduring cities, and roads that connected to every settlement in the empire that are still partially in use today.

"Ah."

"Who?"

"Character of a work of fiction back where I'm from. Managed to politic, backstab and subvert his way into ruling a vast empire. Was undone by overreliance on fear and hatred and his thinking he had his apprentice firmly under his thumb."

Or both. Or he's a better assasian than you first thought. Either way, by the standards of the demon world you keep what you kill is a thing...

By process of elimination, he's got the job.

At the very least, the Grand Princess liked the food. I'm going to consider this a win. What did he go with for dessert?

You blow yourself up. Not lethally but, well...you come to in great pain sitting in the middle of a crater.

"Are you an idiot?"

*koff*

"On occasion. Or there's some kind of fundamental flaw to how I'm trying to do this."

I'll probably spend the rest of the training session, and the ones after, working on the things that I did manage to do without blowing myself up. Shoring up basics and meditating, basically.

... what I'm doing wrong is likely something basic, simple, and so natural to the Demons that they're not even considering the possibility of someone messing it up. I'll go ahead, swallow my pride, and talk through what I'm doing when I try things out with the Handmaidens. And Ruby Eyes too, if she sticks around rather than huffing in disgust and leaving. Maybe that'll help me figure it out.

"Interesting, I hope this won't cause trouble?" I glance sidelong at the twins.

Turning back to the dragon.
