Quite badly, you were in a state of shock. The voice left out the fact that Lambda also quickly recovered from the mental encounter.
That's...a strange thing for the embodiment of compassion to do...why would she not tell Lambda that she quickly recovered?
"Huh? Yay! It's Joe!" Four shouted with glee as she slammed into Joe and hugged him. If he weren't already flat her hyper-active vice-grip would have made him feel like he was. "Oops! Guess that means you're It! Count to twenty, then come find me!" She said to Joe as she let go and ran off in a random direction.
@Gear: Well it's an energy drink. Plus she's a cat soooo...
"That long? Incredible... You look different, Joe. What happened?"
"I wasn't under the impression you could age."
"That woman is strange..." Jio said as he watched Four run off.
Do not fret.
You have lost and recovered your memories once before, you can do it again! The voice said with a rather cheery tone.
OoC @Outis: It had forgotten? :x
"This has happened before?" Lambda blanched for a moment before she truly focused on what the voice had said. "But I regained them... there is a way to get them back? How?"
"Well... when I was travelling from universe to universe people kept staring at me... So I thought if I got some clothes people wouldn't do that as much and I'd fit in easier." Joe said as he looked at the gloves and pants.
Hellooooo my baby!
Hellooooo my honey!
Hello my ragtime gaaaallll!
Send me a kiss by wire.
Baby, my heart's on fire!
If you refuse me,
Honey, you loose me.
Then you'll be left alone.
Oh baby, telephone
And tell me I'm
"I like the new look. What is that, a scarf? Very stylish...could use some color though..." I say to Joe as I look at his new cloths.
Kokonoe had preformed a mind-wipe on you before. Several times, if I am not mistaken.
She was confronted about it and promised to not do it again. It would seem she has broken her promise.
That is not very nice. After it had said this, the voice was silent for a bit to let what it just said sink in.
You recovered your memories last time with certain... keywords. For lack of a better discription.
OoC: Ya about that... I'd need Photoshop or something for colour... That wasn't the latest of that picture I scanned. But it was the best one that I liked. Also did everyone see the full screen one? The avatar is only zoomed in.
"Thanks!" Joe said, slowly trying to wipe all the tears away.
OoC: You could always use Gimp. Thats what I use.
"Can you blame them, freak? You're not a common sight." The boy had jumped down and stood before the group. Somehow, he looked familiar.
"Yeah, it looks as though you're a seasoned adventurer now."
"The professor is a good, if harsh, woman. Though she did do it, it was probably all for the best. But how can we recover the memories again?"
OoC: Peacock?! Huzzah! Ladies and gentlmen, say hello to the bastard love child of Tex Avery and the 6-Million Dollar Man.
"...Jio...do you have a little brother you never told me about?" I ask as I see the kid that looks like Jio.
...@Nail...I'm not really sensing "Embodiment of Compassion" from this voice...
Roland slowly looked at him, and sat there. He waited for the fight to spa-
He was hit by a dart, an fell asleep.
OoC: And I'm off! I'm a fair bit too sleepy, for now. Night!
Oh man, Joe's never gonna find me here. This is the best hiding spot ever!
Hmm? That kid looks like a tiny Jio. He's adorable! Four thought from her hiding place overlooking the group.
"I, uh, I don't even have parents... Tanner" Jio couldn't believe his eyes. But he was looking at himself as a 14 year old.
"Just what is going on here?"
@Gear: I could do some shenanigans with Lambda and get her memory back, even the part about why she got her memory erased. But that would be too easy.
"I've ventured 992 other universes to get here." Joe said. "I-I can't believe I finally made it!"
Like I said, with certain keywords.
But I am uncertain you are ready for it. Last time, it gave you quite the headache, to say the least.
OoC @Outis: Really? I wonder why that is. :P
"Imagine traveling through 992 universes, just to die here with your friends. How touching. If I was capable, I might shed a tear."
"Negative. I will get my memories back as soon as I can."
Are you certain? It will most likely be quite traumatic.
Alot of your memories... were not pleasant ones.
OoC: 'The fuck is that? o.O
Joe got up and looked over at the mini Jio. "Jio I know a lot people say 'you should let your inner child out more', for you I'd reconsider... your inner child is an ass..."
"...And are you the one who is going to kill us?" I ask the boy in a calm tone.
OoC @Outis: Really? I wonder why that is. :P
Well obviosly because it's EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEvil.
OOC: So roughly, 992 universes in 10 years means that Joe approximately saw, on average, 2 universes for every week in a year, or 2.0666 (repeating) universes per week.
"Uh, that's not my innerchild, Joe. I don't know what that is."
"He does look like Jio, though..."
"Don't compare me to that trash. And don't call me by his name. I am Deliverance. And I will deliver all things from the curse of living."
OoC: Leave it to @Slenn to do the math on that one...
And, uh, wouldn't it be about 1.9 each week?
"I need to obtain them again. I cannot just be a tabula rasa. And if I have met this group before... I want to know."
OOC: @Saltyk. Eh, I was just curious to see how fast Joe's pace was. XD
@slenn: You got to remember though, a lot of those universes could be very small. Like for a show like FMA, it's really just one country.
Well Joe started his journey on the Strawhat's Going Merry, so since he got plenty of food, cannon balls anyone?
Very well then.
Ragna the Bloodedge.
Wow. That kid sure sounds like a jerk. I'd kick his ass if I could just get out of this tree. Four said, lamenting her poor choice of hiding spot as she stripped the bark off a tree branch with her claws.
Suddenly, Mr. Dandy showed up from a portal in the middle of the group. "Did I miss anything?"
OOC: @Zeph. I put "on average" to that. I kinda assumed some universes would have been larger or smaller than others.
@Saltyk. My math was... 992 universes/10 years/(12 months per year)/(4 weeks per month)
@ALL: And Im back... Nice job Drak and Slenn...
Winter finds Four stripping the tree branch. "I found you<3!"
