Next Deadline: Tuesday, January 31st at 11:59 PM EST
A random guard
Though the were the smallest of the teams, they were the largest in spirit. Once Destin had realized where he was – Everything Islands, a real place, instead of some fictional place like Galadoria that doubtfully even exists – he immediately switched from awesomely dramatic mode to awesomely dramatic mode plus hat. Some would even argue that he never even switched modes, but instead simply added a hat, but until the gamefaqs for Everything Islands comes out, this was all purely speculation.
The random guard, who couldn’t help but emotionally string himself along Destin’s grand gestures, clasped his hands together as his eyes lit up, exclaiming, “This is like one of my Japanese anime!”
dio212, on the other hand, was so awestruck by Destin’s resolve that he did literally nothing.
All the while, Nirkit was staring into Destin’s mind with a face so creepy yet strangely powerfully psychic. The law of 1:1 between psychic readings and creepy stuff really seemed to be working for Nirkit, but as a beginner psychic by Everything Islands standards – and probably a freakin’ prodigy by standards of worlds were shoddy cold readings passed as ‘psychic ability’ – Nirkit was only able to scratch the surface of Destin’s capable thinker. Unfortunately, the surface of Destin’s mind was pretty simple.
With an amount of swagger than can only be quantified as ‘hit or miss’, Destin then proceeded to take a single step forward, mind completely lost in aforementioned simplicity, and slipped on absolutely nothing, falling flat on his back. Laying on the ground, Destin reflected on what this moment meant to him. Unfortunate, yes, but deep down Destin knew that it was small bits of misfortune like this that went hand in hand with overwhelming fortune later on. Luck, in its own way, was a lot like karma, and Destin took the fall to mean that his [luck] was improving.
Nirkit noted a powerful “Ow!” from Destin’s mind. While it was entirely possible that Destin exclaimed it out loud, Nirkit was too impressed by how quickly he was picking up and improving on his [psychic powers], even if it came at the cost of feeling a little bit more [creepy].
When the ship had arrived at the bottom-most island to the left, an island Nirkit could only conclude Destin had picked for perverted reasons (bottom? to the left? It was all so clear!), the team disembarked. Vexilla Regis would be safe unguarded, unlike the other ships, for it was nigh impenetrable! Access to its quarters were so secret that nobody dared speak of them aloud, and thanks to Nirkit, nobody even dared think about how to board the almighty fort boat.
Within seconds of setting foot on the island, the Keepers of Elysium and The Awesome Squad notice that both teams happened to have picked the exact same island to land on. Not sure whether the circumstance is unfortunate, or expected seeing as how this was obviously the best island to sail towards, the two teams greet one another as day 2 begins!
