The Return of Crest...


In the words of Sean Connery... "I'm waiting to be impressed..."
"...no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free.  No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything - you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is Kill him." - Robert A. Heinlein

Um. Isn't he the only one who didn't go away?

Yeah, last seen he was with his totally hot, super{horned}-sayian Sorceress who give him a chance to kill her if he felt it was the best answer... which he did not do.  Not sure what he would be doing now.. unless she went her own way.

I hope not.   Can't stand Fleetwood Mac.

Maybe she's fighting fire with fire?  You can handle Kansas right?

Hell yeah.  Chrest is going to hit them so hard they'll turn into dust in the wind.

I wonder if he's still got that healing sword? It might possibly come in useful about now....

we didn't spend this entire fight wrecking all of these untrained goons on this one moment for it not to demonstrate that he still has the sword

Ah, so he's RETURNED to his hometown while the others are away. The guy who thinks he's "nothing" has got a serious surprise in store. Crest went toe to toe with BLOODY MARY and lived. Granted, he was only giving May (and later Bern) support, but that's better than KIN or all but the town healer did.

Update: Ah, Trenton, Trenton, Trenton. That kind of boasting NEVER goes well. It's a shame you don't know he's been in Ishkarot getting TRAINING FROM HELL from the Phalanx and Suspira. If you did, you might have had second thoughts about offering a "free shot."

Ooh. Trenton, you poor fool. If only you knew that Crest was trained by Bernadette, a specialist in COUNTERS, and the one who took down Voulger, you'd be pissing yourself right now.

If you're going to use your sword as a blunt weapon, buy yourself a club or something.

Dude, it's a healing blade, a legendary healing blade. He can ONLY use it as a "blunt" weapon. Cutting people with it actually heals them. (See back to Chapter 38 or 39 when it was Crest+Suspira vs The Conclave.)

Bwahahaha! Love cocky Trenton going down. Crest is hitting people so hard with the flat of the blade that it's leaving the affected area numb. And now a blow to the head... Quick Crest, hit him in the chest because he obviously doesn't use his head much!

Trenton evidently forgot one of the first rules of combat: never underestimate your opponent.

Ok Brion, you got me. You've successfully reversed the Rurouni Kenshin "blunt blade" trope. :)

Wait, beating up his old gang was TRAINING?! :o

Not very effective, as he really didn't learn anything. He took one blow from a knife, but completely stomped everyone else, and now they're going to want revenge, and they can torture this girl who DID recognize him into telling them everything she knows, including who his mother is.

"What happened to that shy timid boy I used to know?"

- He's probably getting the hell banged out him every night by his demon-in-the-sack, Super-horned Sayian, Sorceress, lover! lol!

Actually, the answer is, "he grew up, met a girl, fell in love, got training from hell at Ishkarot, and watched his main squeeze turn into an aberration thanks to a psychotic sorcerer out of his reach, and learned that her magic teachers not only murdered her parents to kidnap her, but intended to murder her as well to keep the secret."

An interesting thought occurred to me about the properties of this healing blade.  While it is clear that it heals extremely quickly, it also seems as though there is a very slight delay between the cutting and healing.  Considering this, might it be possible to behead or de-limb someone if you cut quickly enough with it and also lifted with the blade while cutting to further ensure the flesh never got close enough together to rejoin (in the case of beheading, essentially flicking the head off with your blade as a flourish)?  Obviously, one has to be extraordinarily strong to do all of this in one swipe, but could it be done?

Yeah, that's what I said... mostly... hehe!

I can't wait to see her again... wonder if the transformation is done?  Where she was last we saw her was intense.. but still rather sexy none-the-less! :)

Crest: "In THIS town? Yes, yes I do."

I'm not sure why he thinks beating that gang up is a good idea.
Now they'll go after his mother. Does he really think those knight muppets can keep anything at all safe?

Speaking of his mother. Just how desperate for grandchildren IS she? I mean, there's being open minded, and there's... what she's doing. Granted, Crest was introduced as being painfully shy. (Emphasis on painful) Still, treating girls, no matter how attractive, who come visit your son as potential sperm banks is really rude!

Nah I just think  its a bit of over protective motherliness! She wants to see her son.. her only son.. her first born happy and well taken care of.. so indeed she'd like to see him settled down with a 'nice-girl'.  My mother does the same thing herself on occasion...

Ah-ha!! It's what's-her-name bandage lady amIright?! Makes total sense that a flesh-eating microbe won't harm someone with no flesh as many have suspected that she had.

Also, I hope that Crest and Suspira get back together. It seems like a big waste to lose that relationship.

Her name is Q'talda, and it isn't so much having no flesh, as having prepared the "anti-flesh microbe spell" salve antidote beforehand (of which only she knows the recipe), and using it on those bandages. Like Shepherd though, she seems to love to troll people by going invisible. Then again, she's not legally allowed to be in that city, as an active and high-ranking member of the Phalanx.

Crest. Now would be a good time to mention how Q'talda CONFESSED that she murdered Suspira's parents, kidnapped her, altered her memories and held her captive at the academy purely for the sake of controlling her, and then tried to kill her when her memories returned just to cover it all up. Had the conclave NOT used lethal force against Suspira, they would still be alive, seeing as it was their own spell rebounding that killed them, not any hostile act on Suspira's behalf.

Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.
