Bonnie is by far Lucifer's favorite person here.

In a town full of children and halfwit assholes who have fought battles before but seem to have no idea how to adapt or go with the flow of a battle, Bonnie definitely stands out. The people here appear to think they're playing some kind of game instead of understanding how changing and fluid a battle is, whereas Bonnie's adaptability, survival instinct, and viciousness lends itself to battle immensely well. While several people here talk about plans as if battle plans are something you should ever put 100% stock in, Bonnie seems to understand that battle plans are a type of insurance. A way to feel good and show you have some form of control in an event you really don't. You make plans in order to have a very basic idea of what to do. You adapt when the battle actually starts and those plans go to hell.

On top of that, he simply likes Bonnie's personal attributes. SHe's cunning, strong willed, ruthless, and driven. These are attributes that Lucifer, as a being that represents freedom from control and chaos, adores. She talks the talk and also has the walk to back it up, which he finds lacking in almost everyone else here.

Most impressive was her way of building herself back up. When Lucifer first arrived she was on the verge of, then fell over, a precipice that led to self-destruction and existential terror. He was fascinated that even then she kept fighting, could see that part of her wasn't a show, but was her actual nature. He knew at that point too that she would rebuild herself, either into something resembling who she had been or something new, but stronger than previously as well.

He feels that recent events have proven him right.

It is very, very rare that Lucifer would say he likes another living creature. He can be fond of them from afar, but rarely does he like them. Bonnie has managed to win the position of being someone he actually likes. He's very much acting as a team player right now out of respect for her and the fact that she's one of the most likely people to lead them to managing to kill Kagaku due to her drive. Bonnie in turn will probably prove to be the only person here who might have some kind of ability to rein Lucifer in, though even then he wouldn't give her too much of a chance to do that because while he likes Bonnie, he also isn't adverse to having to fight/kill her if it really comes to it.

He's fought her twice now, both times when she wasn't in her right mind. He'd like, very much, to fight her one day when she's at her peak.

So far Luci isn't entirely sure what to make of Dirk. He seems a competent enough leader when he has to take charge, and he can appreciate his desire to instill discipline into the other magi here, which is something they severely lack.

Lucifer is, however, cautious about anyone who would want to be that controlling. He'll definitely be keeping an eye on Dirk, because he doesn't trust that kind of mindset.

Anyway, now that the small fry are done, let's get on to the opinion of the big enchilada.
eatdavesbabies: (That a fucking fact)

[personal profile] eatdavesbabies 2017-04-16 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Much like Dirk is of him, Bro isn't entirely certain what he thinks of his little doppelganger here. Unlike Dirk, Bro hasn't had any experience in actually talking with alternate versions of himself. It's an entirely new experience for him. He's damn sure he doesn't like it.

Mostly he doesn't like it because it forces him to look at a younger and, in his opinion, more naive version of himself. He hates seeing a version of him that doesn't understand yet how impossible and pointless it is to try and corral most people, that they aren't worth the time or the effort of the whole ordeal. When you spin your webs, little man, spin them small and for a singular person or reason. It makes him self-conscious because it reminds him of something he's long past. But it also reminds him there was a point he gave a shit about people.

That being said, he's still definitely going to keep an eye on Dirk.

Part of it is because in a way he wants to help Dirk. Dirk doesn't understand the downfall he's headed towards if he keeps giving a fuck about other people. He needs to learn this lesson quicker than Bro himself did because if he does maybe, just maybe he might actually be better adjusted than Bro. In a weird way, Bro DOES want to guide and 'help' Dirk in a way that he thinks would be beneficial to him. It isn't really, of course, but it's what Bro knows.

The other part sees Dirk as a proxy for him in trying to protect his interests in town without having to move too openly. Dirk is more open to people than him and others are more receptive of him. Considering Dirk seems to be bending so well to Bro's manipulation, he thinks it could be worthwhile to try and push Dirk in the direction he wants things to go. And if Dirk resists, well. That's fine. He doesn't have to do everything but Dirk has provided enough ammo for Bro that Bro is kind of surprised he was given such an edge in this competition.

He was really flabbergasted Dirk asked him to help spy on/gather info on people. Not because he's against doing it, but he's amazed Dirk would hold out a sword like that for Bro to just take and run him through with if it ever called for it on Bro's end.

You're in for a bumpy ride on the Bro express, my man.

One of the things Bonnie hates more than anything is to be told what to do or how to do it by someone who she isn't under contract to, or isn't being paid a single dime by. Pokey's always come across as someone who knows way too much about everything, and she felt like he was flaunting that every time she came across his big dumb face. In the way she usually does, she treated him like the others: a nuisance who she could run circles around as a Nightmare Hunter, but harmless in the long run. Worth taunting in the way that she does.

Then, of course, in August. Pokey completely summed up everything she hated about Lilith at the time by calling her the monster, as she hadn't even killed anyone yet. Even before she killed anyone and after Lilith killed two of them, she was the monster due to how happy she was to play the game, and how little she cared about getting along with anyone else. While she was trying to get over it after their fight, everything he said started to push those bitter feelings right back up, which is why those words rang out the loudest when she came back after Lilith killed her. If she was a monster in their eyes, she'd become an actual monster when it came down to it.

Though his advice was accurate, she didn't want to hear any of it, and after murdering him in August, she saw him as just another one of the pathetic pacifists who didn't want to kill her in return when it came down to it. Just another reason for her to leave Nyoi-cho and never come back. By the time that she came back Pokey was gone, so surprise! She completely forgot about him until his return.

By that point she had already dealt with Lilith and was back on top, so it regressed back until recently. She thinks he's stupid for how he dealt with the dungeon business, but given all of the other reactions to it and the fact that she herself created a Witch and was already hated before then, she didn't feel like fighting him or getting him killed would be worth it. At worst, getting rid of Miki and Hoshiko's grief seeds would be punishment enough, along with being kept on a tighter leash.

She doesn't really like him. But truth be told, that knowledge that he has is invaluable and he's a guy who's willing to figure his shit out on his own time and hopefully not dwell on petty shit in the middle of a massive fight. She's willing to work with him, and given where she's going after the boss battle, may even let him know how she's tried to bounce back and tried to get to where she is now. Whether or not he'll like the answer, that's on him.


Ryoko on the other hand, always thought Pokey wasn't all that bad. Sure, he could be a little crass and seemed to be a bit of a delinquent at times-- underage smoking, how evil-- but he seemed to always have the best intentions at heart. He was always nice to her, and more importantly, even though it wasn't direct: he knew Yuki, and fought in Mayfield alongside, somewhat. Two different groups sure (and not even the same Yuki), but they still fought to the same goal. How could she hate him?

Every event that went by gave Ryoko reason to believe he's not nearly as good as he says he is, considering how quick he is to be a downright shit to her. But truth be told, she always chalked it up to just that: that it was some kind of magic event nonsense going on and that it'd be alright. He was just under some kind of bad influence. He was smart enough to know that, and she just needed to make sure she remembered that herself.

That just made the dungeon that much more horrible for her. Knowing that someone who seemed to have somewhat decent judgment and could see any of this coming would continue on, not protesting at all once Sachiko told them not to go and Mettaton tried to continue. She wanted to believe so strongly that he wound up down there under protest and he was trying to take the heat because that's who he is, but the story he told just made her angrier.

She's not really over it. She doesn't hate Pokey, not in the slightest, but she's not happy that this is what he's done. She really does hope that he remembers that he's not fighting to keep himself safe, but literally everyone else, and if he can do that, then maybe she'll trust him again.

re: Lucifer

[personal profile] dokkans 2017-04-16 06:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Bonnie, for all intents and purposes, absolutely should hate Lucifer. He's a Darkstalker, he's smug, he beat her in a fight (twice now!) and he'd probably catch a tidy sum if they were back in Makai. Who could say they killed and bagged a demon of that regard, and who else would be able to do it besides her? Alas, Nyoi-cho has a weird way of working these things out. Lucifer's becoming a favorite of Bonnie's as well, and she wasn't sure he was going to be anything besides an enemy when they first met.

Of course, at that point in time she was literally enemies with everyone, and amongst all that: Luci just made the most amount of sense. There was always something off about him, and given how forthcoming he was in wanting to test her abilities and how he views everyone else, there's no way she'd come to hate him any further than any of the other monsters in town. Time proceeded and as Bonnie starts to learn more about how she should be as a magi, Lucifer is a constant reminder that even if she does think to team up with anyone, she shouldn't lose sight of what she truly is as well.

After all, she did almost succumb to her existential crisis yet again. Wanting to be killed so she could forget about being a Darkhunter for good, and Lucifer was the one that propped her right back up by explaining the sheer superiority of the human race to her in a way she completely understood. It made her realize that getting mad over it was pointless, and the best way to deal with it at this point was to show Kagaku Yamashita what kind of human she truly was.

If he's behind her, she's more than willing to have him help her in trying to track down and kill Kagaku Yamashita, and in the process? If they have to fight again, while Bonnie's able to know what she's doing and Lucifer's not under any kind of mind control himself, she'd be more than happy to oblige. There's nothing wrong with a deathmatch spar, in the end!

Either way, she's happy to have him around. His knowledge and strength makes him a good part of the team, and the utter disdain he has for weaklings and those who want to pile on so much responsibility with nothing to show for it makes him that much more useful to Bonnie personally.

Well, when she regains consciousness, she's gonna be really grateful he knocked her out before she could hurt anybody, so she might awkwardly thank him and/or ask him to teach her how to elbow drop.

As for Pokey, I get the feeling if she came in at any other time, she probably would ignore him, but because of timing and all, she's gonna stick by him until/unless something Drastic changes. It's not cool how everyone keeps giving him shit, you know? And he seems like a pretty alright guy, just really cynical, like damn.

[personal profile] relieable 2017-04-17 02:04 am (UTC)(link)

ew no.

okay, that's a lie. Osomatsu has been worried about Karamatsu every single day they've been here. he never knows when a battle is going to pop up and take him, or his brother away, even if it's just for a few days. he feels neither of them belong here. they aren't heroes. they're soft! they tell jokes! how are they supposed to be Magi?

nevertheless, there's something cool about it being just the two of them in this world. he loves the bonding time they've had together. he wants there to be more of that and less fighting. and he wants them to succeed. he thinks that at least Karamatsu deserves to be happy. Karamatsu's a good guy, a little stupid, but better than the rest of them. so Oso'll do his best to protect him, while still treating him like shit. maybe that's Osomatsu's way of trying to toughen him up? or maybe he's just an ass.

Karamatsu is essentially Osomatsu's twin, so there's a strong bond there. Osomatsu would do anything to ensure that Karamatsu lives. he'd put himself in harm's way for him. bros before hos, dude, all the way.


Wow. where to start? first and foremost, Osomatsu probably respects Ryoko the most out of everyone. she's young, but she's been a Magi for a long time, and bad things keep happening to her! when he watches Ryoko out on the battlefield, those big brother senses kick in, and he just wants to protect her, but also follow her to the end. if Ryoko told Osomatsu to do something, he'd trust her judgment and do it.

he thinks she is too pure for this world, but also knows that she's obviously seen some shit. she's watched her friends die, maybe has even died herself? he doesn't know for sure. he just senses a sadness around her, something tragic, and he thinks that's because of what she's seen and done in this world. she shouldn't be dealing with that! she's a young woman who probably wouldn't give him the time of day in the real world. she should be going to parties, hanging out with friends, having fun.

instead Ryoko seems so sad and serious. he doesn't mind relinquishing the title of leader to her, but he also wants to cheer her up somehow!

relieable: (that's gotta count for something)

[personal profile] relieable 2017-04-17 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
they didn't talk for very long, but Osomatsu really likes Bro! he thinks the big puppet is creepy, but he can appreciate the bit. that's obviously Bro's Thing, and that's fine! there's just this wicked cool vibe radiating off of him, and Osomatsu's thinking, 'Wow, just talking to this man makes me feel important!'

......he's so wrong. about everything. but then, when you're a loser like Osomatsu, everyone else is cool.

Bro is another one of those people who, if he commanded Osomatsu to do something on the battlefield, Osomatsu would do it (i mean, within reason. Bro seems like the type of guy who would play a joke on someone who showed him fierce loyalty). he respects him, but is also a bit wary of him. the guy could crush him if he wanted to. so Osomatsu hopes to stay on his good side, and avoid any puppet-attacks.

Dirk has no idea what to make of Bro Strider.

On the one hand, Bro is an iteration of himself and is therefore capable and intelligent. For all the AR annoys him, Dirk trusts his judgement and considers him a valuable partner and crime and conversational partner. Bro also offers the one thing Dirk has wanted his whole life, and that's a father figure who teach him and guide him. It's not the brother he wants, but it's someone who can offer guidance and help him figure out what the fuck he feels. He wants Bro's approval even if he won't admit it.

On the other, Bro Strider is an iteration of himself and is therefore dangerous, headstrong, and not to be trusted with impunity. Dirk knows what he's like. He knows that he's controlling and has a mean streak a mile wide, he loves trolling the fuck out of the people around him and manipulating people to his whims, and he thinks that he can deal with this after dealing with the AR.

Except, no. He can't.

Dirk has never dealt with a version of himself who has lived through the tumultuous teen years and come out of it a worse person. He doesn't realize that Bro knows all of his weaknesses and he doesn't really know any of Bro's, and the difference in the power dynamic is going to be his downfall. Bro browbeating him down hurts more than the AR doing it and he's way more susceptible to his influence. And Dirk is going to learn that he's not as great and powerful as he thinks he is soon.

As for Lucifer...

He doesn't know what the fuck to make of him, other than he has a valuable power and seems rational, if not ridiculously brutal, most of the time. This is going to be a case of keeping your friends close and your potential enemies that much closer.
