The Book Cage - Episode 89: When the Star Kings Die
Maximillian Dragonard: an ex-cop in prison whose birth defect has given him beserker rage. It's violent, it's stupid, it's from 1967. There's also a guy named Tingo Spellhands. I don't know that I really need to say anything else. So join me this Friday, 5pm eastern, as we meet Dragonard the murderer. Dragonard the madman, Dragonard the beast.

Power move, but you could have just removed his heart, Dragonard
GDC

As a frequent violator of this, I can tell you it's the result of reading too much schlock genre before going pro.

Do not, my friends, become addicted to quality! For you will become resentful of its absence
gellaho
Quality is boring
GDC
Quantity is where it's at.
gellaho
What's this? A new opportunity for stabbing?
FancyShark
It's a regular Stabsgiving!

Maximilian Dragonard, stab magnet.
gellaho
Oh, it's just Jeremy
gellaho
A Franklin W Dixon ghostwriter got in here
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
so is Jeremy a good rebel or a secret bad rebel
Brendan
I'm a novelty man myself.
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
More important how tall are his tits?
LyraV
I so badly wanted Bel to stab him.
Brendan
They're gonna transplant Kristin's tits onto him and she'll live on that way.
FancyShark
"I'm not into you like that, Jeremy"
Brendan
Wait
gellaho
That's not what that's called
gellaho
Brendan
Why didn't the emperor just do this whole plan while Dragonard got a new, non-Wolverine brain?

Maniacal Scarebird sounds like a fucking 100gecs album
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Which is why your light switch plates are all nude men and you only eat ice cream sandwiches.
gellaho
Jeremy's entire thing was getting the medical technology out to people, so he probably doesn't want Dragonard to explode it
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
he had to take care of his dailies in WoW
Brendan
That's the most Warhol shit I've ever heard.
LyraV
They lost the word scarecrow during 'the wars'
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
Fair play, that's better thought out than I first thought. Carry on, Jakes
gellaho
Knowing something is possible is not quite the same as knowing how to do it
FancyShark
I hope Jeremy's plan for distributing the organs is to toss them into crowds
gellaho
For example, I know that organ transplants are possible. But that doesn't mean a whole lot to somebody without working kidneys
Brendan
Don't blame society because your moonshot ate shit.
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
"I know I just wrecked most of the underpinnings of galactic society but listen! We know how to grow organ transplants!!
"Okay how do we do that?"
"I don't know."
This is exactly how you get the proles to start thinking about counter revolution, Jeremy.
Brendan
They conquered FTL but can't clone organs.
FancyShark
These terrorists suck. You couldn't even start a rumor?
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Hey uh......Dragonard, maybe if you want people to take hope and be inspired by the possibility that things exist, dont BLOW UP THE ONE THAT DOES!
Brendan
Makes you wonder what we're sleeping on at this point, right?
gellaho
I WANNA BLOW IT UP
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
NO IT'S NOT YOU FUCKING MORON
FancyShark
Button shiiiiiiiiiiiny
gellaho
STOP BEING SUCH A LOSER, JEREMY

Leftist Infighting, starring The Lords of the Exchaaaange!!
FancyShark
Classic sunk cost fallacy
Brendan
So are they just assassinating clone scientists like Iranian physicists?
gellaho
Here comes stab number 3!
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
I mean Jeremy has a plan that is actionable, Dragonards is just fucking dumb. Did they replace his brain with a little bag of sand or what?
gellaho
Or does it!
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
so far Dragonard has been defeated by Knife, Knife, Knife, Rock, and Knife again

God help him if anyone ever figures out how to work a gun
Brendan
I dunno, Jer, Dragonard seems pretty immobilized. Maybe just do your thing while he watches helpless.
gellaho
Bel choose the Dragonards
FancyShark
YES
Brendan
Classic space adventurer.
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
FUCK YES

Bel "Talltits Brotherstabber" Lynx.
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
All it takes is some half-bared heaving breasts and Dragonard's back in the game
Brendan
hahaha she committed fratricide and her breasts return as mood rings.
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Yeaaaah its going Conan now.
LyraV
Like streams of rain a thing that is not hair like or red.
FancyShark
Thrusting and heaving, like hounds pulling at their chains
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Full Conan, Bel is going to screech "TAKE ME AND CRUSH ME WITH YOUR LOVE!" and they'll fuck.
Brendan
Imagine betraying your own sense of self and history's like, "Man, her tits could not HANDLE this."
gellaho
He's fine though
LyraV
Her breasts were like Cerberus guarding the river Styx.
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
Don't worry, it only hit muscle, I don't need that
Brendan
Don't even show me your boobs if they're not thrusting and heaving, ladies.
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Bel you suck, you stabbed him in the back and failed to kill him.
Brendan
I'm spoiled by modern living.
gellaho
Seems like Bel might have immediately regretted that decision
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
You didnt stab enough, go back and finish the job.
gellaho
Or she's into it
Unclear
FancyShark
NOOOO! NOT THE BEAUTIFUL INTESTINES!
gellaho
A grand success!
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Hahahaha what a shitty fortress, he blew up ONE door and the whole thing caved in?
Brendan
My brother and I saw you and your narc-girlfriend from across the space-bar...
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
I changed my mind, he was right to blow it up.
Brendan
we were thinking you'd be into a little role-stabbing?
gellaho
Med dust
FancyShark
Eight thousand men went in. Twenty eight came out.
Brendan
BUT ONLY FIVE WORE THE GREEN BERET
FancyShark
Which means only one thing: I get top bunk whenever I want
gellaho
Some ye olde at the end here
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
If nothing else I'm glad they're finally getting beyond Thunderdome
LyraV
I'm sure Dragonard will be great at blending in
GDC
sounds like a real hive of scum and villany
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Great plan, not vague at all.
gellaho
(I still don't believe you about Kristin)
FancyShark
No one moved because they are crippled, malnourished and wondering where their friends are
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Um......I think they passed the point of no return quite a while ago, Bel. Like maybe at least one.
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
She found the cloth somewhere. Don't worry about it.
gellaho
"We have much, much less than we did! Huzzah!"
FancyShark
"Giddyap"
Brendan
brisket's served. Enjoy your space cop western barbarian quest
BEL CAN DO BETTER
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Except........no? Everyone already knew this was possible, just lost technology, that you made lost again because you blew it up.
FancyShark
Take care, @Brendan !
gellaho
Very romantic
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
^o^/ Enjoy your delicious meats @Brendan
LyraV
Later on @Brendan
gellaho
I mean, it's over
FancyShark
Dragonard immediately starts getting catty about Bel's threads
gellaho
Well, now it's over
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Dragonard, you knew that space cop waitress stripper for like two days? Get over it. geez, you have a new brain and everything.
FancyShark
The Ache for Kristin is a nasally punk song from the 90s
Ai no Senshi Flippant Sausage
Also way to pull the new brain ladder up after yourself my guy.
FancyShark
Max "Fuck You, Got Mine" Dragonard

Man, for a prison break/prison break/suicide bombing book, kind of a heel-dragger
LyraV
Yeah but the Nard can't be satisfied with an amazing warrior who loves him he must always long for something more to be a true man. I guess?
FancyShark
We did it!
Badger - Rated R for Relevant
We dun did it!
He never even fought the giant Floormaster, what the fuck
LyraV
I will never forget about Dragonard.

So concludes the 89th edition of The Book Cage
FancyShark
It does show lights coming from the fingers though. So I think it's supposed to be Tingo
LyraV
Excellent addition to the Book Cage @gellaho
FancyShark
Thank you, @gellaho !
LyraV
Thank you so much

Thanks again, @gellaho !
GDC
Thank you for powering through the baffling prose of Jakes
gellaho
May all your spellhands be tingoed

I just don't grok why they couldn't maintain the embargo against the star kings, destroy the stock, and preserve the tech.
Brendan
found a typo. She jockeyed her BREAST up alongside his.
high and tight, like his cop's haircut.
