Eh? Well... by glitchedpuppet Eh? Well... by glitchedpuppet
After a stressful day, there was only one thing Gunpowder could think of to unwind: drink his sorrows away in the Spinda Cafe. It was no secret that he enjoyed to drink almost every offering from their menu. It was also no secret that his tab has gone unpaid since he arrived, and the only reason he continually managed to get away with it was his association with Devonshire.

On the way to the Cafe was that blasted ice beast. Like most of the residents, Gunpowder was sick of the cold it had brought, despite the advice it offered. Since he was currently in quite the rut, he had no problems expressing his distaste directly to it.

"Hey, you. Ice thing. Yeah, I be talkin' t' ya."

Sorbet casually turned its head towards Gunpowder. It was known to do things on its own time.

"Oh, it's you. The one noisier than the purple one. Escaped from that ghost's realm, I see?" Even its speech was slow.

"Hah! Devonshire'd never send me that far. I ain't talkin' t' yerself t' be talkin' 'bout me, though."

The dragon's interest had been piqued. "Oh? What is it you require of me, then?"

"I'm tired o' this cold! The hell be wrong wit' ya, anyway?! Can'tcha see the rest of us ain't suited to this? I'm tired of you, too. What with yer'.. omnipotence."

"I am many things, but omnipotent is certainly not one of them. I am just very observant. It's hard not to be when I perch myself here in the middle of the village. It is the most comfortable spot, after all." The dragon strolled off its roost towards Gunpowder - a rare sight indeed. "Like you. I saw you over there, at the hut. The only reason you are confronting me is to have someone to express your anger towards. That's fine, I suppose."

"Eh? Well... About that... It's all that Shroomsworth's fault. He always be--"

Sorbet was quick to interrupt. "Don't give me that. I know full well it was your fault. You were late. You always tend to be. Like I said, I observe many things, especially the rumors. I've heard you tend to not pay much attention to detail."

More criticism? Gunpowder was growing rather tired of hearing such slanderous filth. "Hey! What's the big idea, mate? Why're ya insulting me s' damn much?!" He stomped right up to the other dragon, putting them nose-to-nose. "I think ya might be wantin' t' tangle."

Sorbet raised his head, putting it out of reach of Gunpowder, who was noticeably smaller. "Hah... No, no, I don't want that. I am just telling you as it is. You can try to deny it, but it doesn't change the facts. You are irresponsible. That much is clear from how you are acting toward me alone."

Sorbet was not unwise, and seemed to hit the nail right on the head, despite how badly Gunpowder didn't want to admit it. He looked away from the dragon, not wanting to show further signs of weakness.

Sounds like someone's about to get put in his place. Is this going to turn into a bit of character growth?

Ok, the way you do your Pokemon Mystery Dungeon story makes me want to try it the same way. I especially like Gunpowder's design.

Hmm, I wonder if Gunpowder will change, if at all :)
magshi Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011  Student Digital Artist
gunpowder should watch his behavior around sorbet, or he might just end up frozen solid!

I happy seeing this one because I actually saw the livestream (finally) for it.:D

This story is making me think of Gunpowder as just an angrier version of mike. Gunpowder's life sucks too, but he flails his arms and shouts incessantly rather than sitting and taking it.
Groudan383 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Wow, Kyurem did hit right on the head. Gunpowder just needs to realize it and fix it. I know he could do it. It was funny that during his conversation he was using big words :)

Someone is really mad about his sorbet recently. XD
JellyWeasel Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011  Student General Artist
Gunpowder, we think that it's time for an intervention.
iSuperBboy Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Seeing you make this one was amazing!

The truth hurts when said so bluntly.

Oooh, I might want to see that tangle.

the slight transparency of the ice on sorbet's face is sick as hell
