KARKAT: THERE IS ONLY ONE COURSE OF ACTION FROM YOU WHICH I WILL TOLERATE, AND THAT IS FEEDING ME A STEADY DIET OF FUCKING ANSWERS! NOT CAGEY, SMIRK-TORTURED INFO-MORSELS DELIVERED BETWEEN SHITTY VILLAIN CHUCKLES, I WANT AN UNINTERRUPTED SPATE OF HARD, UNEMBELLISHED DATA WHICH HAS ONLY ONE PURPOSE, AND THAT IS TO GET ME PERSONALLY UP TO SPEED ON LITERALLY EVERYTHING, RIGHT THIS BLOOD SHITTING SECOND!!!!!

FUN FOR ALL INVOLVED, ESPECIALLY THE MARCHBUGS SNEAKING THE CRUMBS AWAY! KARKAT: I WOULD FUCKING KILL TO HAVE TO GIVE YOU PASSWORDS AGAIN, ESPECIALLY IF IT MEANT UNLOCKING REGULAR JADE FROM HER CORRUPTED EMPIRE SERVING BARKFIEND STATE! KARKAT: *IS* THERE A PASSWORD LIKE THAT JADE? CAN I START GUESSING AT IT?? KARKAT: LET'S SEE, SINCE YOU APPEAR TO BE SOME SORT OF WILD CARNIVOROUS FURRY NOW, IT PROBABLY HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH MEAT, DOESN'T IT? KARKAT: SAUSAGES? KARKAT: IT'S SAUSAGES ISN'T IT KARKAT: AM I CLOSE? SOMETHING IN THE SAUSAGE DEPARTMENT. KARKAT: SNOUT SAUSAGES? KARKAT: GRUBWURST! KARKAT: HOOF LOAF?? KARKAT: HAMSTEAK!!! JADE:sorry karkat, there is no password. not this time JADE:if you continue to list meat products then im afraid the only thing you will unlock is my fearsome doggy hunger JADE:and believe me, you dont want to see me when im doggy hungry KARKAT: (ROLLING MY DAMN EYES) JADE:but if you insist on hounding me (hehe) for some sort of explanation, its all pretty simple JADE:we all recently arrived in this brand new session... janes session actually JADE:this is jane btw. say hi jane JANE:. JADE:lol JADE:jane is actually my biological mother believe it or not KARKAT: THIS STORY SUCKS SO FAR! JADE:shh!

I THINK WE ALREADY MANAGED TO DEDUCE THAT! JADE:karkat you are the one who demanded an "UNINTERRUPTED SPATE OF HARD, UNEMBELLISHED DATA" JADE:ill thank you to not to yell at me for doing exactly what you requested KARKAT: (KANAYA, DO YOU SEE WHAT I HAD TO DEAL WITH) KANAYA: (You Do Realize I Spoke To Jade Plenty Of Times Myself) KARKAT: (YOU DID?) KARKAT: (OH YEAH) KARKAT: (I GUESS I FORGOT ABOUT THAT) JADE:her imperious condescension is in control now JADE:she intends to carry out the remaining objectives to complete the session JADE:those tasks will be distributed among several recently recruited agents of course JADE:(thats you!) JADE:this should come as a relief to you since it means you and she are not in opposition at all JADE:in fact you share all the same goals! JADE:the only difference is that when the time comes she will be the one claiming the ultimate reward JADE:the spoils will be hers not ours... get it? KARKAT: I THINK SO! KARKAT: SHE WANTS US ALL TO GET A NICE HEAD START ON OUR DECADENT NEW LIFE OF SLAVERY PROMISED FOR US ON YOUR SCALE MODEL OF ALTERNIEARTH. KARKAT: THAT SOUNDS SUPER! DOESN'T THAT SOUND SUPER KANAYA? KANAYA: No KARKAT: I THINK I SPEAK FOR KANAYA WHEN I SAY IT SOUNDS Really Fucking Super. KARKAT: HOW DO WE GET STARTED??? I AM JUST BEFOULING MY ALREADY-PUNGENT DRAWERS OVER THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET DOWN TO BUSINESS AND START DOING SLAVERY! JADE:excellent JADE:what you will need to do is ready the young frog for its journey to skaia JADE:i will prepare skaia to receive it by deploying the battlefield from our old session JADE:this will bring fertility to the void session and allow the frog to mature when he completes his journey KARKAT: SO YOU WANT US TO MAKE ANOTHER FROG? JADE:no! JADE:i already made one actually JADE:dont you remember?? KARKAT: UH JADE:really your job is so easy JADE:theres no more frog breeding involved at all JADE:when the time is right, you just have to release the one thats already there KARKAT: WHERE IS IT? JADE:it fell into the forge JADE:in the years since it has sunk all the way down to the planets core JADE:but as it happens that is exactly where it should be! JADE:my denizen is now guarding it JADE:as im sure kanaya already knows it will not be released unless you travel there and formally request that she do so KARKAT: OH YEAH? KARKAT: IF IT'S THAT SIMPLE, THEN WHY DON'T YOU DO IT! KARKAT: YOU CAN USE YOUR DOG TELEPORTATION OR WHATEVER. JADE:i already did JADE:echidna will not speak with me KARKAT: HAHAHA! KARKAT: WHY NOT? KARKAT: COULD IT BE DUE TO THE FACT THAT YOU'RE A CRAPPY EVIL VERSION OF YOURSELF, AND THE MIGHTY ECHIDNA JUST POSSIBLY HAS TOO MUCH SELF RESPECT TO BOTHER DIGNIFYING THE FARCE YOU'VE BECOME? JADE:it is not important why, and it changes nothing JADE:she said she would only speak with another hero of space JADE:that would be kanaya JADE:she also cryptically requested the presence of the knight who once helped her with breeding duties JADE:karkat i gather that would be you KARKAT: ME??? KARKAT: WHY WOULD SHE ASK TO SEE ME KARKAT: ANOTHER SPACE PLAYER I COULD UNDERSTAND, BUT WHAT THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO DO WITH THIS? JADE:i dont know karkat JADE:that is your problem, not mine JADE:maybe you should try feeling grateful she asked for you KARKAT: GRATEFUL?! JADE:youre getting the chance to set right what went so horribly wrong JADE:to atone for your hasty first attempt at frog breeding which resulted in a terminal universe JADE:if i were you i would feel pretty relieved to get a second chance, but thats just me :p KARKAT: WOW... KARKAT: WOW!!!!!!! KARKAT: KANAYA, IT'S OFFICIAL. JADE HAS TURNED INTO SOME SORT OF GROSS NIGHTMARE BITCH! KARKAT: AS THE BELEAGUERED AND LONG SUFFERING LEADER, ALBEIT *STILL* LEADER OF OUR PARTY, I MOTION THAT WE DON'T DO ANYTHING SHE SAYS, OR ANYTHING TO HELP THE EMPRESS EVEN IF IT OVERLAPS WITH OUR OWN INTERESTS, AND STOP LISTENING TO WERE-HARLEY UNTIL SHE SNAPS OUT OF HER BRUTAL IDIOT COMA! KANAYA: I Second Your Motion KARKAT: THE MOTION PASSES WITH AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF VOTES AMONG PEOPLE IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY WHO AREN'T HORRIBLE!
