Challenge to the Overlord

Post by Mallory » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:46 pm

“If we meet, we shall not scape a brawl;
For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring.”
~ William Shakespeare


Not long after changing her alignment, Mallory posted a second notice:

Nothing personal, Nat — your grace period’s nearly here, and I’d like to take my shot before that happens. I challenge you for Overlord. Let’s make it a good one.

Pretty close to the Sunday cutoff, but still valid!

The response below Mallory's was written with a deliberate, painstaking flourish, an eloquent looking script that had its gravitas completely ruined by the stick figure drawn below it.

Mallory Maeda,

I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself,
And falls on th'other. . .

Thou art a villain most foul, witchy woman o' the horny forehead! Treachery! A turncoat of terrible countenance! I curse the day I took thee into mine own confidence and will see this disloyalty met with scathing violence!

I accept thy challenge, rapscallion! Prepare to be savagely rebuked!

Menacingly yours,

Nat Candle

Such an eloquent letter demanded a reply in kind, and Mallory chose her words with great care.

The smelly-hatted one and I have agreed to settle this dispute over very serious matters of honor, chivalry, decorum, et cetera, on Wednesday the 19th at 9:30 by the eastern clock. Na-rae Takamine has agreed to call.
