Bet you weren't expecting this, eh?
<- Back to Chapter 5
(After the incident from last chapter, Scottick brought Stiris with him back to his dorm, where he had assembled everyone else he met.)
Scottick: So everyone, this is Stiris.
Stiris: U-um, hi...
Scottick: Since she has the ability to use healing magic, she's going to be a useful part of our team. Just don't treat her like a walking potion.
Stlou: Yeah, about that concept of "team." See, we've been thinking about it, and we came to the conclusion that we need more to be considered a "team." For instance, a leader.
Maxstick: (Playing Burnout Paradise) Scottick.
Stick Alex: Scottick, pardner.
Scottick: What? Why me?
Stlou: Think about it, man. There's no way the team could work with 2 leaders.
Strick: I'm just taking Stlou's word for it.
Stlou: Max is too angry to be rational, like, at all.
Maxstick: (Gets taken down into a bus) STUPID INFERNO VAN!
Stlou: Alex has no idea what the modern world is like.
Stick Alex: What's a "tee-vee?"
Stlou: I can tell that Stiris would crack under the pressure of being in a role as high as leader.
Stlou: And if we let Garyn lead, we would be called the "Super Special Desu Space Knights."
Stick Garyn: (Smugly) I'd totally do that.
Scottick: So by process of elimination it's me?
Stlou: It's not even a choice. Sorry, man.
Scottick: Ah, whatever. What else is there?
Stlou: We also need a name. Nothing like what Garyn just suggested.
Stick Garyn: Dang it.
Scottick: That shouldn't be too hard.
Strick: "The Rocks?"
Scottick: Nah, maybe if we were a band, that'll work.
Stick Alex: "Gulch Grottos?"
Scottick: If we were all from the Wild West, sure. But nah.
Maxstick: "Alliance of Flames?"
Scottick: Too bad we're not DC superheroes.
Stlou: ...how about...
- 3 hours later... -
Stick Garyn: How 'bout "Press L to-"
Stlou: We told you we weren't taking your suggestions anymore.
Scottick: Okay, how about this? I'll just come up with the coolest word I can think of and we'll name our team after that.
Scottick: "Revenge." "Team Revenge."
Stlou: Sounds good.
Stick Alex: Sure.
Stick Garyn: Fine.
Stiris: U-um, okay.
Maxstick: By the great ones above, THAT'S PERFECT! We'll surely strike fear into those Berzerker Corps. losers with a name like that!
Stlou: Hang on, if we're called "Team Revenge," who are we avenging?
Stlou: Guess we're not living up to our name, then.
