-Hyoga and Ichigo continue to fight through the castle, with neither side having an advantage, until Hyoga pushes Ichigo onto the balcony-
Hyoga:Look, you're against the edge. Just give up, and we can all go home happy.
Ichigo:How about no.
-He swings his whip, catching Hyoga's feet, tripping him. He then throws him down the stairs, catching Donnie in the process-
Hyoga:-under a Blastoise- Gah...fine. You win.
-He sighs, and heads back with Donnie and the remaining Fontaine warriors-
-Ichigo is resting after fighting all night-
Sagi: "Yeah, that's unfortunate. I can try and convince him to make you an ally as well, but I had a hard time convincincing him to ally with Viperia, so I don't think that would be wise at this point."
"And I used a mix of the knowledge that they're avoiding attacking Spectra, what happened as a result of the thing with the rose, my letter chain with my brother, and your ability to completely shut down strategy meetings."
Crow: "Oh, good."
"How long have you been around?"
Hue: <This isn't really anything to cheer about.>
Leon: <100% correct. If anything, that's a negative.>
Scholar: <Er... well...>
Lanie: Since... J-Con this year? Sometime around then.
Squealer: <Aww, why?>
"...When was that?"
Leon: <If you're just going to be sitting around stuttering, what's the point of this place?>
Lanie: I... don't remember, actually.
Jacob: -Sighs and turns to Sakura- "Well I was going to participate at a tournament that's been delayed, for me at least. And then... well.... um.... I just found out I'm related to someone who has caused me numerous headaches. I.... actually you know what he acts almost like the annoying little brother I never had, even though we're not actually that closely related. I guess it actually makes more sense now."
Celzvet: -Nods a few times- "Yes I see... that does sound like it was quite the effort. Ah don't worry Sagi. No need to refight that battle with Yusei to help out me. I suppose I'll manage serving under Nixtorm."
-He smiles- "And color me surprised. I thought everyone just assumed I went to other kingdoms to annoy them. However I found when you throw a jester into a strategy meeting nothing gets done. So I figured, if it shuts down potential enemies, why not throw something at them that's even more distracting than a jester, because of his political and military power. And thus, well, you've seen what I do. It's pretty effective, from what I've seen."
Sagi: "Well, if you're sure."
"And, yeah, it really is."
Squealer: <But wouldn't that be the point of this place, to sit around and stutter?>

-Sabaku rubs his aching shoulder.-
Sabaku: Rgh. Stupid, stupid... I should have known that one of those Fontainians would see me coming.
Wodan: <Just be thankful that you were not hit by one of those tranquilizer darts.>
Sabaku: Oh, I was.
-Wodan gives his partner an incredulous look.-
Sabaku: I was!
Wodan: <Then how did you proceed to beat that straggler to a pulp?>
Sabaku: Adrenaline is the world's best stimulant, and I was already angry.
-Sabaku may be seen from the castle, alongside his Excadrill and Stoutland.-
Scholar: <Yes, exactly!>
Lanie: Want to go see where Jacob went?
"Hmm? Who's that?" asked Sakura
Celzvet: "Well I'm not sure but I'd rather not give you more to deal with. I mean really what kind of ally am I if all I end up doing is making you solve my problems...?"
-Shakes his head and laughs- "Sadly, I haven't had much of a reason to go bother someone recently. I mean, it's not like I have much I can do now... Well I suppose I could go annoy your brother with more of my funny hats but I feel like if I go into Yaksha he's going to try killing me because, "Sister's friends not my friend. Sister's friend keeps bothering my friends, my friends will be more happy if I kill sister's friends and sister will have less friends" or something you know he talks really weird when gets on about that. Not to mention his psycho with the harp. Ah well."
Jacob: "You know Crow? Him."
Sagi: "Yeah, he can be like that."
Squealer: -to Leon- <What are we supposed to do here then, if not sit around and stutter?>

Leon: <Nothing. This place has no point!>
Macy: <I disagree.> -is spinning the propeller on the wall.-
-Lanie is looking for Jacob.-
Celzvet: "Speaking of your brother, he wanted to try linking with something from Illusio to try beating you. Thought you'd want to know that. If you'd like, next time I happen to pass by Spectra I could bring you along."
"Actually you know what I will go bother your brother. It's not like it's a significant politcal outing or a military advance. I doubt I'd get in trouble for make Yusei's life a little easier. Still, I should probably bring Xeleroth with me, and you can come to watch, if you want."
"Oh, him? Really?" said Sakura, then looking at the family tree nearby that she assumed was Jacob's, and saw that yes, they were related, and started giggling.
Jacob: "W-What's so f-funny about that!?"
-He happens to notice Lanie and Crow but pretends not to-
Lanie: Hey, Iri! Why did you run away earlier?
Sagi: "Yeah, he told me already. He was bragging about it in his last letter."
"And hm... we're going to be attacking Yaksha soon, so keep that in mind. Not sure if it would be better to go now or immediately after."
Squealer: <You say we should do nothing while we're here, then?>
Crow: "Oh, hey again, Jacob."
Jacob: "Lanie... can you blame me for not wanting to believe at first? Is that so wrong?! I didn't want to believe!"
-Shakes his head- "However I have already mourned the death of what little sense my life made before now so I'm alright now."
Celzvet: "Both! We go now and disrupt anything they might be planning, then go after the throw it in your brother's face that he's under Nixtorm's, and by extention, your rule. It's perfect!"
Sakura then looks at Crow and Lanie "Oh, hello you two." she said, still giggling a bit.
Sagi: "With the exception of being under my rule, because I assume he'd rather flee Yaksha than be subject to that, that sounds like a great idea."
Crow: "Hey, Sakura. Did Jacob tell you we're apparently related?"
Sakura nods "It's kinda funny, I never would've guessed that." she said, giggling a little more.
Jacob: -Is clearly unamused with Sakura's reaction to the situation-
Celzvet: "I know, but still it's an amusing thought. So then, do you want to come with me or am I making this trip all on my own...?"
-Joseph appears behind one of the people in the conversation-
I can! Jacob acts a little like Crow sometimes.
Jacob: "No. No I don't Joseph and don't ever say that again."
