    THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN

    Then, suddenly, death was no longer approaching. Dederick opened his eyes to the welcome sight of a canopy of green shielding him from the harsh rays of sunlight that beamed down from beyond. He blinked, then blinked again before furrowing his brows and trying to make sense of it all. A fish man, boar, and goblin? Who would ever believe that something like that could be a threat? Dederick simply chalked up that it had only been a dream version of himself that allowed himself to become so perturbed by enemies so benign. Still, it had been a harrowing experience. He thought for sure that he, and his friends, were dead meat. Still feeling a bit shaky over the whole thing, he reached to his side for his source of comfort - a bowl of soup that was hopefully still warm. But when his fingers met with the bowl, something didn't feel right. His face crossed with fury as he snapped his neck to the side to gaze upon his food, and that's when he saw it. He'd spilled his soup in his sleep. "MY SOUP!"

    Similarly, Dederick had lost the rest of his party in the fray. All attempts to reach the mobs had been met with repulsion from the other players who, despite their unrefined statures, were overwhelmingly strong when put together in such high volumes, and prevented him from approach. He simply wasn't strong enough to make it through. "Damn it," he muttered as he set his jaw. Was there even a point in continuing now? What was he doing here? He was supposed to be a tank, but he hadn't managed to protect anybody. The most impressive thing he'd accomplished was grandstanding and posturing. What use was that, really, if the rest of his party had chosen to rush past him into the arms of danger instead, anyways? This was probably the end. For Dederick, Jackpot, everyone. This was where they would all meet their maker. The only thing that Dederick could hope for was that He was as forgiving and understanding as the scriptures had foretold, and that He would invite his children into his arms with the same ease and grace that danger had in the land of the living.

    THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN

    I told them to stay behind me... was all Dederick could think as he watched the women who had apparently become part of his party rush past him and toward the bosses. Who were eating maximum level player attacks to the chin as though they were nothing, and coming back from the dead even if they did end up hurt. Dederick had never been a man for video games, but it didn't take an MMO savant to recognize that such an act was pure tomfoolery. But he had an obligation to back them up. So, without a word, he rushed forward into the crowd. But the crowd, as it turned out, was either equally as dangerous and terrifying as their shared enemy. He'd never imagined he could feel so squished and stretched while wearing a full suit of plate armor. Or was that due to the rifts in spacetime opening up all around them? It was impossible to tell at this point. Hell's Demons had entered the arena, and Dederick, in his sandwiched state, was powerless to stop them. [Dederick tries to back up his party, but the crowd gives him a big hug instead.]

    Though Dederick usually tried to ignore such things, he couldn't help but notice that Jackpot was more off-kilter than usual. Dederick had always known the man to be very smooth, suave, and confident. Especially around women. Had he lost his zeal, or did he just turn into a blubbering idiot under pressure? It was difficult to tell, and Dederick didn't care enough to get to the bottom of it, anyway. "Can you guys quiet down? I'm trying to concentrate," spat Dederick over his shoulder. Trying to discern just what the hell Jackpot had gotten them into was making it difficult to focus. "Concentrate on what? Being a statue? Color be surprised," came Jackpot's sardonic reply. Dederick wanted to argue, but in the end, knew Jackpot was right. He wasn't contributing anything to this fight, besides putting himself between the Kings and his impromptu party. A part of him wanted to rush into the chaos, but he knew he wouldn't contribute anything of value. His place was here, with his people. "Maybe you'll come to your senses and thank me for it some day." [No action taken.]

    So this was it, then? Mockeries of gods. Dederick wasn't all that surprised - more so, he was surprised in just how angry it made him. These idols were false, cruel caricatures of true holiness. As Dederick watched his health instantly half, then cap off, he knew they were in for the fight of their lives. But the insult that these creatures carried with them was absolutely unforgivable. "D-Dederick... I don't know if being here is such a good idea..." And of course, this fool couldn't handle it. "Nonsense. We should have expected something like this. The god of this world wouldn't give us an easy way out. It would instead send its false prophets, and make us struggle in futility against them." He lowered his shield. "There's nothing that can be done here but fight with everything we have." It was then that the slender woman with a verdant mop of hair arrived, accosting the duo after an embarrassing blunder. She seemed to know Jackpot. Which seemed fitting, considering she seemed just as terrified as he was. "This is, uh, Dederick. He's a tank. Tanky boy." Jackpot announced, introducing Dederick, but neglecting to introduce his green-haired friend. "But I don't think even he can stand up to something like this." In response, Dederick shifted his position to stand between the pair and the monsters that threatened to snuff them out. He bent at the knees and lowered his center of gravity, holding Tarn Mirror firmly between certain death and their small party. "Probably not, but I can try. Stay behind me." [No action taken.]

    THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN

    We are the "noobs," was all Dederick could think to himself as Jackpot yammered on about how many low leveled players had shown up to what should have been surmised as a high level event. If there truly was something that could let the denizens of Aincrad out after only having cleared a quarter of the floors, it was likely so terrifying that the majority of the players here would either be forced to scurry away, or perish trying. There was probably a good chance that even the veterans may perish. But as a knight, he had sworn an oath to serve the populace of this floating hell - retreat was not an option. What really annoyed him, though, was that there was another person there who looked exactly like him. Same hair color, same hair style, same face shape, same eyes, same taste in armor. It was chilling. Had they allowed Geminis to take part in the quest? "No," Dederick finally responded. "We were screwed the moment you trapped us here."

  11. "Awesome job!" Dederick congratulated enthusiastically. "Guess I've gotta catch up now," he mused, looking around for another pack of the tiny vermin. He stepped forward, scrutinized a patch of brush, then swept an oversized leaf aside. Hiding beneath were three more of the very creatures he sought to hunt. "Found you, you little pests." He charged up a Sword Art. Released it. Heard his sword whistle through the air. Then blinked in confusion. One? He'd only hit one of them? And he hadn't even gotten a Boar Tusk out of it. Bewildered by his utter failure, he hardly even noticed that the remaining two Boar Pups were cowering before him. He craned his neck to the side, toward Joanne, and let loose a disappointed sigh. "That didn't go as well as I'd hoped. Any luck on your end?" It wasn't any fun to be behind, and falling further and further back the longer this went on. But he did genuinely hold hope that she was having better luck than he was.

    [F01 - PP] That's my GODDAMN SOUP

    Dederick took the man's hand appreciatively, giving it a firm shake. "If I'm being honest, it really felt like I would be the one taking the pounding here," he admitted as he bent over to retrieve his fallen equipment. Despite the win, Dederick didn't feel any better about the soup. He'd avenged it, but for what? It still stained the grass between them. "Hey. Let's go get some new soup. That's really the only appropriate way to amend a situation like this. My treat." His sword and shield came to a rest on his back before he turned and began meandering back toward the Town of Beginnings. He hoped that Koga would follow, but whether or not he actually did didn't matter in the end. Chicken dumpling soup. It was the only thing that mattered at the moment. Dederick was absolutely famished after a duel like that. It seemed that the day hadn't been so ruined as he had originally imagined. There would be more soup. Life would go on.
