HEad

Three teams prepared to take on the Physical Challenge. Who will the last two choose as their champion?


[After having heard the announcement, Cecil pipes up.]

Neutral Cecil from Between the Lines, English visual novel and dating sim for NaNoRenO 2016.
Cecil: Can I do this one?

Sad Bianca Hayes from Between the Lines, free OELVN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Bianca: What? Um, sure… why, though?

[Cecil looks to the side, looking a little… sheepish?]

Sad Cecil from Between the Lines, free dating sim for NaNo 2016.
Cecil: M-my dad… er, taught me how to fight a little. Back then.

Ettore from Between the Lines, free NaNo 2016 game and English otome.
Ettore: …I see. Wolves are naturally more physically capable than us humans, so it may be the wisest choice to pick you anyway.

Shocked Bianca Hayes from Between the Lines, free dating sim and visual novel for NaNoRenO 2016.
Bianca: Isn’t it dangerous, though? What if he gets hurt?

Ettore from Between the Lines, free English otome VN.
Ettore: Well…

[Ettore purses his lips.]

Ettore from Between the Lines, free English otome VN.
Ettore: If there are no medical facilities here then they may have the ingredients I need to apply first aid. Besides; do you think you or I can do any better if either one of us was to go?

Sad Bianca Hayes from Between the Lines, free OELVN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Bianca: Oh. I guess not.

[The two look to Cecil, who’s been listening intently to their conversation. Bianca gives him a thumbs up, and Ettore nods at him.]

Happy Cecil from Between the Lines, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Cecil: …Thank you. I’ll try my best!

Happy Bianca from Between the Lines, free English otome.
Bianca: Go get ’em.

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Follow me.

Wildfire of the Valkyrie from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Wildfire: Wow, you can’t think of anything more creative to say?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night: You know Onyx. He’s a straight shooter.

[The hockey team is still in the midst of their discussion. As Onyx returns to the room, Wind runs a hand through his dark hair, letting out a sigh.  He begins to step towards the group.]

Ambrosia from free English visual novel, War (X Playing Pieces), in Queen Elsa cosplay.
Ambrosia:
Sir Wind?  I know this game show’s taking a while, but it won’t be long before we can stretch our legs.

Wind of the Imugi from free English otome and visual novel game, War (X Playing Pieces), cosplaying as Dark Link.
Wind: Not soon enough.

[He comes to a stop in front of Paige, glowering down at her from his height.]

Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing by Yoshibb.
Paige: Uh, hi? Sorry for the hold up. We’ll name our participant in just a moment.

Wind of the Imugi from free English otome and visual novel game, War (X Playing Pieces), cosplaying as Dark Link.
Wind: Let me make things easier for you, little girl.

[Swerving towards Blake, he swings an arm around his waist and chucks the human over his shoulder.]

Shocked Paige of 2 Minutes for Roughing, NaNo 2016 VN.
Paige: Blake!

Angry Blake from free English otome, 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Blake: What the heck do you think you’re doing? Get your frBlack bar for the blog of Dreamgazer, English visual novel developer and studio. hands off of me!

Wind of the Imugi from free English otome and visual novel game, War (X Playing Pieces), cosplaying as Dark Link.
Wind: If you cause me trouble, I’ll kill you.

[As he begins to head for the room of illusions, Chase’s eyes grow as wide as saucers, while Ambrosia moves to approach them.]

Ambrosia from free English visual novel, War (X Playing Pieces), in Queen Elsa cosplay.
Ambrosia:
Sir Wind!  Please –

[Before she can come any closer, Wildfire jams an elbow into her side, drawing out a shuddering gasp from Ambrosia.]

Wildfire of the Valkyrie from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Wildfire: Whoops, my bad.

[Before her victim can hit the ground, Onyx is at her side with an arm laced around her waist.  Assured of her safety, Arsenik’s gaze flashes upon Wildfire.  Rather than the usual gentle blue, his eyes are more like ice and steel.]

Arsenik of the Hulder from War (X Playing Pieces), Dreamgazer's free English otome game.
Arsenik: You disappoint me, Valkyrie.  I already knew your standards were low, but to stoop so far as to side with a scoundrel like Imugi…if you were hoping to make me an enemy, there’s no surer way of succeeding.

Wildfire of the Valkyrie from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Wildfire: Who’s siding with who?  He just had the right idea on how to speed things up.  Ambrosia was just in the way.

Shocked Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, VN game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: Wait a second! We’ll just choose someone else! You don’t need to kidnap anybody!

Chase: T-That’s right!

[Taking in shallow breaths, Ambrosia places a hand on Onyx’s plated chest, using it to steady herself.]

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Are you all right, Ambrosia?

Ambrosia of free English otome, War (X Playing Pieces), cosplaying as Elsa from Frozen.
Ambrosia:
You have my appreciation, Sir Onyx, but please do not worry about me.  We must recover Sir Blake!

[Her eyes search the room for Wind, but by then, he has already disappeared into the room of illusions with his captive.  The dark swordsman releases Ambrosia and faces the team of hockey players.

Colt takes a step away from Paige, wary of the ever growing dark aura around her.]

Shocked Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, VN game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: Oh, this is not good…

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Who do you wish to send?

nanorenoprofiles11
Chase: Come on, Onyx!  Forget about the game show.  We don’t have time for this.

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Wind of the Imugi is not likely to harm him.

Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: See, Paige, it’s just part of the game. He’ll be fine!

Wildfire of the Valkyrie from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Wildfire: Really?  Wouldn’t bet on it.  Given what his teammates were saying about him, he sounds like a real handful.

Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: You are really not helping.

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
They are required to send one member of their group to complete the challenge.  It isn’t necessary for them to rescue a princess.

[Night gives a slow nod.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night: Yes, this does work better, given how many teams there are.

Chase: You two are crazy.

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
We are only following the prince’s orders.

[He turns his head towards the group once more.]

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Decide.

[Paige responds with a humorless chuckle]

Angry Paige from 2 Seconds for Roughing
Paige: Decide? You sweep my partner right out from under me, and I’m just supposed to roll with the punches?

[Paige is slipping ever closer to losing her legendary violent temper.  Colt looks to Jordan in desperation.]

Sad Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Colt: Jordan, please say something to her.

Jordan from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: Why?

Sad Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Colt: Cause unless Paige is secretly a world class samurai ninja, these people are way out of her league. I don’t care how angry she gets.

Jordan from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: So you tell her.

Sad Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Colt: she doesn’t listen to me like she does to you. You’re her goalie, remember?

[Jordan rubs the back of his neck, embarrassed.]

Blushing Jordan from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: It doesn’t sound as cool when you say it.

Annoyed Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: Jordan–!

Angry Jordan from Yoshbb's 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: Alright, just stop screaming in my ear.

[Jordan steps up and physically stops Paige from approaching any further by grabbing her wrist.]

Jordan from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: Paige, wait.

[She shifts her glare towards Jordan, but it doesn’t hold the same venom it did before.]

Jordan from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: You should go get Blake back. Play the game.

Angry Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: But they–!

Angry Jordan from Yoshbb's 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English VN for NaNoRenO 2016.
Jordan: If you get worked up and out of control here, who’s going to rescue him? Your actions affect the whole team, remember?

[Paige clenches her fists until her knuckles turn white but quells her anger back to a manageable level by inhaling a deep breath.]

Annoyed Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: You’re right. I’ll save it for someone who really deserves it.

[She punches her open palm and nods towards Onyx and the rest of their hosts.]

Annoyed Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: Well, you win. I’m motivated enough to take on a dragon and a half.

Sad Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Colt: Probably shouldn’t give them any more ideas. They took the last one pretty literally.

Arsenik of the Hulder from War (X Playing Pieces), Dreamgazer's free English otome game.
Arsenik: I understand you’re upset – and reasonably so – but please don’t group us all together with Imugi.

Annoyed Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: Just point me where I’m supposed to go.

[Onyx raises a finger in the direction of the room of illusions.]

Onyx of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), free English otome and VN game.
Onyx:
Wind of the Imugi should have taken Blake to the tower.  Rescue him from there.

Sad Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing.
Colt: Paige…

[Paige turns back to him confusion. Colt is filled with sudden apprehension and feeling a bit useless for not having the courage to go in the room himself. She walks back and playfully punches him in the abdomen to snap him out of his melancholy.]

Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, English visual novel game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: What’s with the face? I can’t let you hog all the glory, Colt.

[He regains a bit of his smile when she casually lets him off the hook.]

Colt from 2 Minutes for Roughing, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Colt: Just be careful. This challenge seems a lot more dangerous than the last two.

[Jordan simply nods in agreement. Paige chuckles at their concern.]

Paige from 2 Minutes for Roughing, English visual novel game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Paige: Thanks, guys, but I’ve trained in some pretty crazy and creative ways. I’ll be alright.
