The Mayor - Chapter 4 - Bare Bones
« on: March 19, 2009, 01:33:56 AM »

Elected Command: Face punch.



“So, do we have a deal little man?” BaraBara darkly inquires.

The chamber falls silent.

The Man’s thick brows furrow, “You’re wearing my hat.”

“Your hat? Ha!” the grizzly playfully laughs. “This top hat has been passed down from one demon dynasty to another, over countless millennia. It has seen constant strife, perched atop only the most dastardly of us demon lords. When Slug Lord GonkaGonka fell during the battle of Salty Falls, I rightfully looted his deflated corpse for just such a treasure. It has been said to be imbued with dark powers, but I confess to never figuring ou-.“ BaraBara stops himself.

Unbeknownst to the distracted demon lord, The Man has reared his right fist back.

BaraBara is only able to elicit a small whimper before The Man’s tightened fist cuts through the stale chamber air with such a ferocity that sparks of lightening crackle from his knuckles. Landing directly into BaraBara’s mouth, the demon lord’s back jawline shatters as the fist dives further in, finally stopping as the spinal column cracks wide open.

The clatter of the grizzly skeleton’s boney frame falling to the ground echoes off the chamber walls. Only his disconnected skull remains, balancing upon The Man’s still outreached arm. The flames formed within his eye sockets have bulged out, both from force and disbelief.

“I-impossible!” BaraBara at last manages to spittle out. “No man could break the blackened bones of a demon! We are forged from the ancient powers of rock music!”

With his left hand, the man gracefully clutches the brim of the demon lord’s top hat. In a single fluid motion, he flips the hat from off the grizzly skull, lands it upon his own head, and tilts the brim slightly downward.

“Such classiness! I must know!” BaraBara exclaims, before sinking his frontal fangs into The Man’s arm. “Of course! Your bloodline tells tales that of which your very soul couldn’t. Such power! Such classy power!”

“Where are they?” asks The Man, face still made of stone.

“Those who wronged you? Those who tossed your tattered body into this lost tomb?” BaraBara voice cracks.

“The same.” says The Man.

“For such knowledge, you must swear to spare me! Swear, or I’ll curse your arm to damnation!” BaraBara demands.

The Man furrows his thick brows even further.

I say spare him.  Someone has to plant the 'Vote for THE MAYOR' flags along the road.

In a single fluid motion,

Nothing to say of The Man's honed reflexes?

Now we can form a pact. Because now there's no confusion as to who's wearing the top hat in this relationship.

I say spare him for now, but The Mayor doesn't make pacts with demons. Demons make pacts with The Mayor.

We have established superiority!  That said, there's no reason to be a dick about it.

Truth be told, I wouldn't be half surprised if by sparing him he decided to come along of his own free will.  You know, despite getting punched in the snout.  Dude's gonna befriend the FUCK out of people when this is all over.

Info is helpful.  "Spare," I say.

I choose Pact: "I let you live, you help me once when I call you. That or you die now."

Pact is right out.  Kurabara-Kurabara should be forming a Pact with The Mayor, not the other way around.

Sparing could be a pain in the ass, since that's the quickest path to a recurring boss fight.

GRIMDARK SMASH belies a one-track mind on the part of The Mayor and fails to fully achieve the potential of the current situation.  One the other hand, if BarappaTheBarapper comes through with his threat to curse his arm to damnation, that may actually be beneficial.  Anime has taught me that body parts of the damned usually just become jet black and more powerful.  Brazo Izquierda del Diablo.

"Demand Pact" is the clear answer in this case, but in the absence of such an option I'm going to have to go with

SMAAAAAAAASH!!!

Bitch.

Also, feedback:  you said unbeknownst "unbeknowen."  Middle english sounding.

I voted to spare the demon because a) no curse, thanks, and b) we can obviously beat the crap out of him so I don't see any ...immediate harm coming our way from him.  And maybe we get some information out of the deal.

Now that dominance has been established, we may form a pact.
