ROXY: hes meditating JOHN: what? meditating?? KANAYA: Yes KANAYA: Inside A Pretty And Spiritual Cave ROXY: echidna really blitzed his chakras apparently JOHN: what the fuck is a chakra. ROXY: shrug ROXY: some soul junk that gets blitzed in the presence of a snake goddess?? JOHN: um. JOHN: this doesn't sound like something karkat would do. JOHN: are you sure this isn't some sort of bullshit? KANAYA: Its Definitely True And Not Bullshit Lets Change The Topic ROSE: Agreed. ROSE: I think I speak for all of us when I say we've indulged in entirely enough bullshit already. ROSE: Let's get on with this. ROSE: John, you're our leader. And if you try to deny that one more time, so help me god, I will acrobatically pirouette so hard off this lilypad, I'll perform a supersonic swan dive through Skaia and impregnate the battlefield with my own incredulous torso. ROSE: Now please tell us what to do. JOHN: wow, ok! i won't say i'm not your leader anymore, jeez. JOHN: i think it's about time to get going! JOHN: by my estimation, all the bad guys should be getting here any minute. JOHN: so we should go find the condesce and ambush her. JOHN: she's supposed to be on derse, right? ROXY: yup JOHN: alright, then let's go. JOHN: i think we are as ready as we are going to get. JOHN: we all have weapons, cool powers, a plan of attack, and most importantly of all, each other. JOHN: never forget, team work is our secret weapon here. JOHN: probably the most powerful weapon we have! JOHN: second ONLY, perhaps, to the power of friendship itself. JOHN: remember that, guys. JOHN: as long as we have team work, friendship, and cool powers on our side, we can't lose. JOHN: you are my best friends ever... rose and roxy, and kanaya and terezi, and dave and jade and karkat, and also jane and dirk and jake, and... ROSE: John. JOHN: hold on, rose, i'm almost done... JOHN: and callie, and tavros, and cat rose, and um, the sweaty guy, uh, PROBABLY not the clown in the fridge though... oh, yeah, and even probably vriska. JOHN: oh, and the mayor! he's great too. JOHN: did i miss anybody? i think that's it. JOHN: anyway, i believe in you all, and i know we can do this together. JOHN: now let's go kick some ass! ROXY: mmm thas good shit ROXY: very leadery :) ROSE: ... JOHN: how was that, rose? ROSE: I don't know what I expected. JOHN: huh? JOHN: wait, did i say something dumb? ROSE: No, it was fine. ROSE: Roxy's right. It was very leadery. Very... "John". ROSE: I'm just wondering now, if you're really going to embrace this business of leadership, ROSE: Maybe you'd consider hiring a speech writer? JOHN: a speech writer?? JOHN: i dunno, rose. i think i'd be pretty bad at memorizing speeches. JOHN: especially ones YOU wrote. :p ROSE: Touché.
