>it is a place none can reach of their own free will, and yet all have been there

>in this castle, the ruler governs his land and his people - which includes all those who enter it

>for few can understand what goes through his eternal, ageless mind, as his desires are simple, while his dedication to his work is unprecedented
>but what would a being such as him do when there is no work to be done?

>often, he reflects on what he has done, for a being as eternal as he has done very much

>he reflects on love lost, on acts both selfish and selfless, on what it means to engage with mortals whose lives end so quickly, on his presence in their lives and their views of him
>and he often ponders on what his future holds, for even a being as old as he will one day reach his end, and what meaning his actions will have when that time comes

>he reads

>in his castle is a most special library

>it also contains the tomes that will be written, whether as early as tomorrow, or as far away as the end of all things

She'd never seen a gorilla before much less one that wore a lab coat, really the coat was scarier then the person wearing it, though she did shyly wave back to him as she walked out. He was nice enough to give her this suit after all, one that was comfy and didn't make her feel hot so that was a plus.

What did you put in there that could have done this anyway?
Cause no plant I ever herd of could do something like this.

This is a home for the homeless. A place where you're finally free to be yourself, and not have to worry about your past.

I know you carry a lot of luggage on you, but we're here to help take some of that weight off!

Here, you'll be able to get an education, meet cool new friends, experience new things each and every day!

What the fuck makes you so special, Sandy?!

Do you – I have a friend, Inara – she’s had to spend almost her entire life here in one of these freaking cells so she wouldn’t explode and kill everyone around her! April was made in a fuckin’ lab and all she knows is how to hurt and kill people! And those are just the ones I know! There’s tons of them in this freaking school!

And they’re all still trying to be happy! They’re still trying to get better! So what the hell makes you different, Sandy?! What makes you so goddamn – so uniquely irredeemable?

Fortunately Kori was neither capable nor equipped to understand how awkward the situation had become, so she barrelled on forward anyway.

I'm not sure about the circumstances. It's possible that both of them lost their tails before you were born.

And yes. Every Saiyan who has a tail can transform. I also avoid going out on full moons whenever possible.

As I said, I'm not sure of the circumstances. It's not unlikely, they're far from a benign race.

>A tinge of iron crept into her voice. Kori's hands tightened into fists and her gaze grew cold and bitter.


Saiyans are a warrior people who find the greatest joy in combat. Nothing excites one more than exerting their strength and proving themselves superior to another in a fight. The strong thrive, the weak perish and the elite prey on anybody that they feel is deserving of their fickle wrath.

>Her body visibly tensed all over. Teeth gritted, frustration and engraved on every taught line of muscle. Her fists shook with rage....before it subsided. Kori's body released all its tension, and she looked back up Sandy. She'd been careless, this wasn't about her.


>Trying her best to pretend the minor outburst hadn't happened, Kori continued, folding her arms.


The time you fought my son, I saw it in how badly the room had been destroyed, in how he was acting. You'd both fought as best as you could, and both of you were thrilled by it.

Like can feel like.

As for your tail...

>As if in response to the conversation, Kori's tail wrapped around her waist once more.


Mine is not as hardy as yours. Once you reach adulthood, it can't recover as easily from battle as it once would.

It's also at its weakest during regeneration.

>Kori's eyes flitted towards Sandy's covered up waist underneath the sheets.


I could remove it right now. The process would hurt for a moment but with enough power, I could burn off the tail while it's in its regeneration period. The shock would stop the process.

>Kori held up an open palm, and a small flickering ball of green light started to grow, hovering gently above it. The room would start to feel ever so slightly hotter, and the glow reflecting off the walls looked sickly and dangerous. It danced above her hand for a few seconds, before Kori crushed it, the light dimming from the room.


The other way to free yourself from the Oozaru's power is to learn to control it.

As I did.

I do understand. How conflicting it feels to be apart from something you thought you hated. The choice is yours. While it can be a powerful tool, I wouldn't blame you for wanting to cast off your race.

>and then squeezed the bottle to let the water pour right onto her head
>she quickly shook her head to let off some excess water, grinning widely

>she held out the bottle for Albert
Want some too? Help to brave the heat, yes!
