Brother Nathaniel: Ah, Ms. Cerulean, such a beautiful hue to her scales. The fiery amber of her eyes... I promised her I would return to her one day. I still have the coordinates to the island. Jun 22, 2021 5:00:51 GMT *
RufusScorpius: And no doubt you left them something to remember you by as well... even the blue lizard girl... Jun 21, 2021 20:26:35 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Admittedly, this is true, Brother Rufus, But I would like to state that I still remember all of them and keep mementos. It always meant somthing to me. Jun 21, 2021 16:45:26 GMT
treeslicer: Ya might even get Shatner play a 24th. Century version of Denny Crane. :D Jun 21, 2021 16:03:48 GMT
treeslicer: Just imagine Starfleet trying to sort out the survivor's benefits claims after Kirk finally croaked. Make one whale of a military legal procedural movie, maybe even a series. (:)) (rofl) Jun 21, 2021 15:56:18 GMT
RufusScorpius: Rumor has it the Brother Nathaniel is the James T. Kirk of the fantasy realm. Black, white, red, alien, he doesn't care. At least that's what I've heard. Jun 21, 2021 10:42:49 GMT
treeslicer: Nah, DNA will tell, even on the amphibious green ones with tails. :D (rofl) Jun 21, 2021 7:20:29 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: That is correct, but if we are counting that, then we might have some that we have trouble identifying. Jun 21, 2021 1:13:25 GMT
RufusScorpius: ? You mean no heir that you know of, right? Jun 21, 2021 1:10:19 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I hope you understand, Sir, that I shall not exactly reveal my cards to the public. Security measures and all sir, but my absence for a prolonged period of time... you can take your guess but I can assure you it isn't mundane. Jun 21, 2021 1:07:43 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Perhaps you are right , ol' brother. I shall defer to your many more years and look forward to the horizon with a renewed vigorousness. After all, I still do not have an Heir, none to carry on the name, I shall not let it end here. Jun 21, 2021 1:00:16 GMT
RufusScorpius: I have no time for the dead, nor do I have quarrel with them. For I will in due time be with them, and then there will be feasting and libations as we tell the tale of our living times. Jun 21, 2021 0:53:33 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: resting against the tombstones.. Jun 21, 2021 0:51:56 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Ah and what times those were, unfortunately not everyone made it out of those expeditions, I still pour out the liquor for them sir, I still visit the graves. Sometimes I set upon the warm grass sharing a bottle with our deceased with my bottle Jun 21, 2021 0:51:45 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Tell me of that which perplexes you and I will put an arrow into it's eye and split it's belly open with my Roman steel Jun 21, 2021 0:49:36 GMT *
RufusScorpius: I stood by your side when we defeated the 2 headed Jakelope of Besleba, and our campaign into Dorrasinia to capture the marauding Skunk-Ape all those years ago is still fresh in my mind. I would adventure again to rid you of a new enemy or threat. Jun 21, 2021 0:48:32 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Some may get that and some may not lol Jun 21, 2021 0:44:52 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Trust that if it truly was enemy situation, you would merely not see too much of me for a few years at least while I attend "College". Jun 21, 2021 0:44:25 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Not Midlife crisis yet my friend, still a bit more youthful lol Jun 21, 2021 0:39:42 GMT
RufusScorpius: Brother, you are taking too many risks lately. Is there a midlife crisis? Illness? Or a secret enemy that you are ashamed to make public? If the later, I only need to know a name, not a reason. Just saying. Jun 21, 2021 0:30:29 GMT *
