VRISKA: Ok, Dave.
DAVE: there are all these rumors swirling around that ive gotta beat LE anyway
DAVE: which is probably bogus but w/e
DAVE: killing this guy at least would be the next best thing right
DAVE: so maybe if i do that i could like
DAVE: put the "prophecy" to rest
VRISKA: That logic sounds reasona8le to me.
VRISKA: For what it's worth, I never 8ought into the idea that you were supposed to 8e the one to kill English anyway.
VRISKA: So that's one down. Who else?
TEREZI: OK, WHY NOT
VRISKA: You sure, Terezi?
VRISKA: You're not immortal, remem8er. And this one's going to 8e tough.
TEREZI: YOU S41D W3 N33D GOOD F1GHT3RS TO GO 4T TH1S GUY
TEREZI: 4ND 1 TH1NK 1'M PR3TTY D3C3NT
TEREZI: 4T L34ST 4T ST4BB1NG TH1NGS
TEREZI: SO 1'LL GO
TEREZI: *SOM3ON3* H4S TO W1TN3SS D4V3'S H3RO1SM, 1F H3 W4NTS TO B3 L3T OFF TH3 HOOK FOR TH4T PROPH3CY >:]
VRISKA: Hey, it's your decision!
VRISKA: Anyone else?
TEREZI: WH4T 4BOUT D4V3'S BRO?
TEREZI: 1 H34RD H3'S SUPPOS3D TO B3 HOT SH1T
DAVE: yeah sure
DAVE: thats fine if uh
DAVE: youre comfortable volunteering someone who isnt here for a deadly battle
DAVE: its cool if you want to do that
VRISKA: Dave, come on.
VRISKA: As if it's not extremely likely he'd seek you out upon getting here anyway.
VRISKA: Why don't we just pencil him into the team as "Pro8a8ly"?
VRISKA: Just 8e sure to de8rief him on the whole situation when he gets here.
VRISKA: Think you can handle that, Dave?
VRISKA: Ok, gr8!
VRISKA: Which reminds me...
VRISKA: What a8out you, Arquius?
VRISKA: How do you want to fit into this?
ARQUIUSPRITE: I haven't decided yet
ARQUIUSPRITE: I'm going to crunch some more numbers in the vast combat matri% I just compiled now, in the microblink of a nanosecond, to deduce the optimal strategic appropriation of my assets (i.e. muscles)
ARQUIUSPRITE: Joining Real Dave in battle is semitempting, but I do not wish to horn in on Real Dirk's
ARQUIUSPRITE: Instead I would prefer to blaze my own trail, with my own hooves
ARQUIUSPRITE: I always wanted to do something really important and heroic
ARQUIUSPRITE: I mean, aside from all the other stuff I have done like that, which is quite a lot
ARQUIUSPRITE: But something quite grandiose, and perfectly unmistakable as a gesture turning the tide of fortune for all of e%istence
ARQUIUSPRITE: This is what I have always desired
ARQUIUSPRITE: Well, that is to say, both halves of me once had such an ambivalent desire, which was compromised by our respective internalized confli%
ARQUIUSPRITE: But together, that desire is fully realized. No longer ambivalent
ARQUIUSPRITE: Neigh, it is now fully bivalent. Perhaps even univalent
ARQUIUSPRITE: I would like my gesture to shock everyone
ARQUIUSPRITE: It must come from out of the b100, make virtually no sense, stun all involved, and have a lasting, profoundly unintelligible impact an all future and pseudofuture events
ARQUIUSPRITE: Does this answer your question
VRISKA: Sorry, I was just temporarily mesmerized 8y your incredi8le spiel.
VRISKA: Needless to say, I a8solutely agree with your philosophy on heroic action and wanting to do something important.
VRISKA: In any case, you've earned the right to do whatever the fuck you want, just 8y dint of 8eing awesome.
VRISKA: End of story!
VRISKA: Ok, next...
