The TL;DR CR Meme

1. Post a top-level for yourself and your characters
2. People respond to you by asking for the deets on how your character feels about theirs
3. You give the deets, then you get other people to give the deets
4. It's just that simple

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.

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.
