Oi.

[Notice, please, the subtle differences between VOOOII and oi. For starters, you're not deaf. Yet. But you see, Squalo wants your attention today, not your sweet, sweet hate.]

What with BREW dragging people in and out all the time, I don't get why people get so upset when someone from another world dies.

[Irony, thy favorite victim is a certain shark.]

I mean, when someone leaves and never comes back, they're as good as dead for us anyway. But haven't people who died here a while ago, come back via BREW again? Without even the memories of their deaths, to boot. Doesn't that mean that unless you die in your own world, you aren't really dead? They're just... gone.

[A snort.]

That makes mourning really fucking pointless, doesn't it? It's like whining and throwing a tantrum because things don't go your way.

[a low whistle] Who spit in your coffee this morning?

[A snort.]

I don't know what you're talking about.

Of course I do, would I lie to you?

Ever? Well, I dunno. It's human nature, isn't it?

People lie when they're not smart enough to explain the truth without getting killed.

Let's think about this.

If you happened to ask me my weight, I would lie - naturally.

Now let's say I lie badly, and you don't believe me. Well, it certainly wouldn't be my life that would be forfeit~

[A laugh.]

Point, but you forget that a true gentleman knows better than to ask.

Mmmm, I'll concede that. We'll replace you in the equation with your average bozo to make it accurate.

But what about to protect a secret or to keep a something a surprise? Death doesn't necessarily follows those.

Why, thank you.

[The wry grin, you can hear it]

Even the silliest things can end up bloody with the right circumstances.

[Like his family.]

[Huffs thinking you're only being difficult] Of course they can - if you're dealing with psychopaths. I'll be more explicit next time when I mean the general public.

Clearly, you don't hang out the same social circles I do.

[a pause] You mean the kind with kids in godawful frog hats?

...every team needs a team mascot. And we were low cuz of budget cuts.

Ah.

That's a shame, really. A frog's not much of a mascot.

Dunno, it's a pretty amazing pincushion, though.

Depends entirely on whether his mouth is open or not. And he doesn't know when to shut the fuck up.

So I noticed.

It seems to me like you have your work cut out for you, Commander. Good luck with that~

You have no idea.

...if everything else fails, we can always have French for dinner. They're the ones that think frog legs are a delicacy, right?

Probably. But a delicacy's usually all clever marketing anyway. Are frog legs even worth eating? They look little and stringy.

...so why don't we sell the delicacy instead? I'm sure someone would fall for it.

Did I say little and stringy? I meant they are a dieters dream~ So much flavor packed in such a tiny package. And fibrous too! Keeps you full. Why I saw the president Circinus Cybernetics while I was on Mars last - who is a very discriminating man, by the way - and he wouldn't eat anything but!

Yeah, I think we could work something out.

[Squalo laughed.]

VOOOII, I think we can make this work, yeah. You do the marketing, and I do the... harvesting.

Deal~ Harvesting doesn't sound like my thing.
