Michael: *to Damien* No, just the Belnades necklace-holders... the necklaces have a tendency to actively ensure that their powers will be manifested by their desired hosts.

Dream: *glares at the maid, looking deeply insulted*

Annie: *having just arrived, and now talking to Tori* So, let me get this straight. Miriam came here to face Ne, and he freaked out.

Miriam: That's right. :sniff: He... He still fears me... I have to leave him be. It's for the best. I'll need to find another way to help him overcome this trauma, but... but physically being present will only make it worse.

Luigifan: Hmmmm... If Leila can't stand Nikolai, but is best buddies with Ne, and Ne can't stand Miriam, but is best buddies with Leila, and Nikolai can't get Leila to trust him no matter what he does, but his goals are similar to Miriam's...

Leila: Huh?

Dream: I was chatting with Luigifan on the way here. In the future, Nikolai devotes himself to patching up the frayed relations between the Catholic Church and Slavic Neo-pagans.

Luigifan: So, well, I was thinking I could ship Ne with Leila and Nikolai with Miriam.

Miriam: ...

Leila: :? ...Uh, didI hear that correctly?

Nikolai: ...

Tori: I fail to even see what you are trying to even accomplish here...

Luigifan: ...I'm just trying to make everyone happy.

Tails: Er, I don't think the clock spirit I accidentally made will like that-

Miriam: Are you crazy? Nikolai tried to put Leila in the same sort of mess Snake-Jaw put Lydia in!

Maxmillian: :(

Justin: *wince*

Sunlight: ...

Lydia: *noticing Maxmillian's reaction* Comfort PLZ - Smileys Maxmillian... it wasn't your fault...

Miriam: *continuing on, oblivious to Maxmillian's discomfort and Lydia trying to comfort him* I can't trust Nikolai him not to hurt me - nearly getting my soul devoured by Trapestry one time was more than horrible enough!

Dream: You didn't nearly get your soul eaten, Miriam. I nearly got my soul eaten... Shiver ...brrr, that was horrible!!!! If not for Damien... jibbly, jibbly... *Dream shudders for a few moments before snapping out of her fear funk.* Haaah... Okay, I'm better now. Where was I? Oh, yes. Luigifan, I already told you, Nikolai ends up married to Leila-

Leila: ARE YOU FRICKIN' KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!? YOU'VE LOST YOUR MARBLES, DREAM!!!!! THAT WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER HAPPEN!!!!!!!

Nikolai: Emoticon - TT.TT

Luigifan: ...You heard Leila. She'll never accept Nikolai.

Dream: Yeah, right. She totally has his babies.

Nikolai: :blush: W-w-what?!?

Harry: :O_o: Are you kidding? He tried to kill her!!! ...Wait, how are babies made?

Damien: The storks will be the ones to decide if you get kids or not, Leila.

Nikolai: Blush Emote Uh, that's not how it works-

Artemis: *interrupting Nikolai* Err, not quite... I can see the passion in the eyes of Nikolai. He will repent as much as he feels he needs to so that he might grace Leila with his-

Dark Matt: No.

Luigifan: :O_o: Can we please keep things under triple-X level?

Luther & Lindsay: OMG SHOCK.

Harry: OMG ANOTHER SHOCK.

Artemis: *flatly* -love... *Artemis notices Luther, Lindsay, Leila, Harry, and... well... pretty much everyone giving her funny looks.* What? Were you expecting me to say something else?

Dark Matt: Actually, yes. Though I'm glad that we weren't on the same page this time...

Luigifan: :phew: I totally thought she was going to say "pen"- *smacked by Luther* Ow!

Leila: *Leila looks about ready to throttle Dream.* Shut... up... about... me... being... with... Nikolai! It! Won't! Happen!

Dream: Ha, we'll see about that.

Nikolai: :admire:

Leila: Why the hell are you looking at me like that, Nikolai?!? You're creeping me out!!!

Nikolai: Sweat Drop revamp I... I just really love you, and... uh... 2. Love My desire for you is overwhelming-

Leila: You mean your desire to see me killed?!?

Nikolai: NO!!!!!!! That's the exact opposite of what I want!!!

Artemis: *continuing right where she left off, in spite of Nikolai and Leila's antics* Dream, on the other hand... Yeah, that will be a different story. A very naughty story.

Damien: :iconblushingmadplz:

Dream: *Dream does a spit-take, and spends a few moments coughing and blushing profusely.* Oh, my... :giggle: I can hardly wait...

Michael: :O_o: I am very glad Uncle Reuben wasn't here to hear that...

Justin: :O_o: And I thought my sister was getting into trouble...

Lydia & Sunlight: HEY!!!!!!! :x

Maxmillian: :?

Dream: W-where was I... Oh, right? As I was saying, Nikolai's not the right guy for Miriam, either. No... if it's not Ne, the next best candidate is Sean O'Toole.

Luigifan: Sean O'Toole... You mean, Donovan's son?

Dream: Yep.

Annie: *looking rather exasperated by the hostility between Leila and Nikolai* Argh... Anyone here able to call Nikolai's parents?

Nikolai: Huh? Why?

Annie: I want this mess sorted out once and for all. Which means Leila's family needs to have a talk with your family about this.

Nikolai: Er, that won't help. My family is kinda scared stiff of you guys. They don't want to be seen fraternizing with the "enemy". If Zharnev tried to kill me for "failing" to hand Leila over to him, what do you think he'll do to my mom and dad when they have an interaction with Leila's parents that doesn't involve the latter dying, never mind a friendly conversation?

Everyone: ...

Luther: Nikolai... you're saying your parents would try to kill me and Lindsay?!?

Nikolai: Sadly, they wouldn't have much of a choice in the matter. They'd have to kill you, or Zharnev would have them murdered. Just like he tried to kill me when I let Leila slip through his fingers.

Everyone: ...

Carnation: ...I'm glad my father wasn't here to hear that...

Lindsay: Agreed... knowing him, he'd probably go on a rampage... ^^;

Leila: Grump Argh. Blast that Zharnev... :steaming: That bear is so rotten...

Nikolai: Agreed. I'm willing to face death at Zharnev's hands to protect you, but my parents are terrified of the guy, and I can't blame them.

Leila: ... ... ...You are not serious.

Nikolai: I am serious, Leila. Love I would lay down my life to protect you... I love you. And I'd go to any lengths to prove it to you... I really care about you, Leila. I want nothing more than to keep you safe.

Leila: Paranoid Angry emoticon YOU'RE LYING!!!!!! *tazes Nikolai*

Nikolai: *drops to the ground like a sack of potatoes* flail plz

Matthew: :facepalm: See, this is the sort of stuff Ne's getting sick and tired of.

Annie: :iconsweatdropplz: Okay, then, scratch that plan. Guess we're not having a peace talk with the Velenovas anytime soon. We'll just have to have the Caliburs and the Mokarys talk out their problems. Miriam, I know you don't really want to make Ne freak out again, but we all need to get this settled.

Miriam: sad It is settled. I can't be near Ne unless he doesn't cringe at the sight of me.

Eric: And there's a matter of a psychotic poltergeist...

Annie: Eric? How long have you been here?

Eric: Since Ne started having a King mogeko-induced heart attack and Viv started going nuts.

Tails: Oh boy. How bad is it?

Eric: She was swearing to murder Miriam to protect Ne. She was also suggesting that Miriam stay in Mogeko Castle, which was pissing Myla off to no end, and... *sigh* It was very, very nasty... Honestly, Ne turning Miriam away is probably the best thing that could have happened - otherwise the scat would have hit the fan by now.

Cassandra: ... ... :x ...Where is this Viv?

Eric: Probably inside the house. *to Annie* I'm glad to see that you're safe, Mom... How are Janine and Anastasia?

Annie: They're fine.

Eric: Good, I was getting worried about them.

*meanwhile*

Mordred: ... *Mordred, who is thankfully oblivious to the conversation between Eric and his parents, begins typing a text message.*

Lydia: Hm? Mordred? What are you doing?

Mordred: I'm recruiting Katelyn to help put an end to this nonsense. Running away from your fears doesn't help you. If you keep running away, you'll never escape them. The only way to overcome your fears is to face them head-on. So we are going to force Ne to face his fears. *Mordred finishes the text message and sends it.*

Miriam: ohmahgawd You're going to what?!?

Mordred: This is for his own good. We have to break the cycle of fear and amnesia. We have to make Ne overcome his trauma.

Miriam: :imhorrified: Mordred, brainwashing him won't help!

Luigifan: ...We're not going to pull a Ruby Sparks here, are we?

Annie: ...A what?

Luigifan: You don't remember that movie?

Mordred: We're not going to brainwash him. We're just going to drive him to confront his fear. From there, he will have to overcome it on his own.

Miriam: Upset And what if he can't?

Mordred: If he can't, then he's not good enough for Cassandra Belnades' daughter.

Cassandra: :?

Miriam: Mordred, I don't want Ne to suffer!

Mordred: What? Mom's attitude towards fear is what inspired this idea. To be afraid is to be weak, to allow your life to be controlled by others. You can only be strong if you can conquer your fears, ignore your unease, and act in spite of your misgivings.

Cassandra: Mordred...

Torch: ... *thinking* Okay, now I really have to help Sky get over his issues.

Tori: *to Mordred* You are... really starting to irritate me. Have you no sympathy? My son has been severely damaged by these monsters, and you seem to be brushing this whole thing off as something to overcome to see if he's "worthy" of something that he isn't even aware of. How easy is it for you to ignore the suffering this has caused to those that are his family?

Mordred: I'm just trying to do what's best for my sister!

Miriam: >_<;

Katelyn: *arrives* Hey. So, I heard that you found out what's bugging Ne...

Miriam: Yes. Mogeko Castle... I already conquered the castle, but Ne still fears it. Listen, I'm not sure that this is a good idea-

Mordred: Miriam, I'm trying to help you and Ne. *to Katelyn* Katelyn, I need you to suppress Ne's defense mechanisms - to make it so he can't push away his fear of Mogeko Castle. I need you to force him to face it head-on.

Annie: Uh, guys? I was thinking more along the lines of the Caliburs and Mokarys talking this out.

Mordred: Of course. We should let the conversation start naturally. Now, let's go inside and get this started.

Katelyn: Er, what about my cousin Sean-

Mordred: :x NO. I am not letting that creepy stalker have his way with my sister.

Miriam: :? Sean who? I have a stalker?

Dream: Sean O'Toole. Didn't you hear me talking with Luigifan?

Miriam: No.

Dream: Exasperation

Torch: *exchanges an aside glance with Saru* Wait, what? Miriam doesn't even remember who Sean is?!?

Matthew: The irony here is so thick, you could cut it with a knife...

Sunlight: Uh, didn't she wipe her own memories?

Lydia: Yes, she did... right before assaulting you... :(

Katelyn: *to Mordred* He's not a stalker! He's just painfully shy, and doesn't dare to make a move as long as Miriam's fixated on Ne!

Mordred: Just. Help. Us. Fix. Ne. I'd much rather see Miriam get more mimic genes into the Mimic's Necklace bloodline than some wimpy kid with a useless Stand.

Tails: Uh-oh.

Matthew: *exchanges an aside glance with Uma* Uh... This is awkward.

Matt: *to Mordred* Wait, what? :steaming: MY KIDS ARE NOT GOING TO BE BRED LIKE CATTLE!!!!!!!

Mordred: What? Come on, Matt, don't you want to see your bloodline strengthened with more mimic genes?

Matt: *roars at Mordred* What?! You think bloodline is all that matters here?! What about his happiness?! WHAT ABOUT WHAT NE ACTUALLY WANTS?!

Matthew: :cower: Holycrap that's scary.

Mordred: :O_o: ...The hell is your problem, Matt? Just calm down...

Matt: My problem is that you seem to think Ne and Miriam need to marry each other for some arbitrary and unlikely "power boost" to their hypothetical kids.

Mordred: Well, considering that we have loonies like Mysto, Necrongius, and Malthus to deal with, I think Miriam's children would need to be as strong as possible-

Matt: *is now even more unhappy* So you want to put a bullseye on Ne's head?!?

Mordred: He already has one, so I don't see what the problem is.

Matt: What-

Mordred: Or did you forget about the Light Demon you just beat the **** out of? There's probably gonna be plenty more where he came from.

Miriam: :O_o: :whimper: Emoticon Ne... oh, no... :worry:

Matt: The fact remains that you're treating my kids like livestock for you all to breed with! They have feelings, you genetics-obsessed freaks!

Miriam: Uh, Mordred? It'd be one thing for Mom, Dad, or Michael to be trying to "strengthen the bloodline", but to hear that sort of talk coming from my younger brother is a little disturbing. Not to mention that you have a criminal record.

Mordred: So? I care very much that Mom's bloodline is kept going strong to the next generation!

Michael: ...You've been spending too much time with Luigifan, haven't you?

Luigifan: :x OI!!!

Mordred: Actually, no, I've been hanging out more with Randy...

Cassandra: *to Mordred* Dear... let Miriam pick her own mate... *to Randy* Could you please stop being creepy?

Katelyn: And Sean would make a great mate for Miriam! Invisible Sun bestows people with energy. That could be immensely useful for... well, for the holder of any of the Belnades clan necklaces.

Miriam: ^^; Uh... That's nice, but I was kinda thinking more of the strength of the children I bear, and I hardly know this "Sean", so I would much prefer Ne-

Matt: MY CHILDREN ARE NOT LIVESTOCK!!!!!! STOP TREATING THEM LIKE THEY ARE!!!!!!

Matthew: :facepalm:

Miriam: What? Mordred has a point. I've got a lot of enemies, so I want my children to be strong enough to survive if they get attacked!

Matt: And my point is that Ne wants nothing to do with you, you selfish bi-

???: Katelyn's right, guys... It's true that those who already have supernatural powers, like the power of mimicry, can't get Stands, but even so, Sean's energy-granting abilities would make him an excellent partner for Miriam.

Katelyn: Uncle Phillip? When did you get here?!?

Phillip: *appearing along with Flora* Just now. We heard from Maxmillian that the group that departed to Mogeko Castle has returned.

Flora: And we heard from Michael that King mogeko's curse was killing Ne...

Annie: Flora! Good to see you again! :hug: Don't worry about the curse, it's already been taken care of.

Flora: Hey, sis. :hug: Is everyone all right?

Annie: Yes, Flora, we're all fine.

Miriam: *to Matt* See, I told you that curse thing wasn't made up. :sniff: But even with the curse removed by King mogeko's death, it didn't make much of a difference... Ne's still terrified of me...

Michael: Well, he did just get supernaturally driven into an outrageously intense fight-or-flight reaction. I'm not surprised that he'd still be a little jumpy. But, yeah, just when it looked like Ne was about to have a heart attack, the curse just... went away. It just abruptly stopped, and Ne began to calm down. I'm guessing that King mogeko was struck down at precisely that moment.

Phillip: That would be my guess, too.

Michael: Of course, at the time, I was afraid that the curse went away because King mogeko had managed to capture Miriam and was proceeding to do unspeakable things to her-

Cassandra, Miriam, & Mordred: :nausea: Please stop talking.

Michael: ^^;

Maid: Yeah, like nearly getting killed by Moge-ko wasn't extremely terrifying at at all. And then there's the other hundred-thousand-plus Mogekos that might have nearly killed him or did highly frightening actions in front of him.

Marian: Yeah, and killing all of them won't really do any good. You can tell a kid that the boogeyman doesn't exist all you want, they'll still fear him because they can still think about him.

Marion: There's still the time he ended up in there to deal with, regardless of the King's curse; that is likely why he's still afraid... Seeing Miriam reminds him of the fact that the Mogeko were after her, which reminds Ne of, well, the Mogeko themselves.

Marian: I guess the problem here is that on some subconscious level, Ne wanted to warn Miriam about the castle, but he's so terrified that trying to get his message to Miriam makes him afraid.

Miriam: ... ... ... :sniff: So... he's actually been trying to protect me this whole time? :sniff: T-that's so sweet of him...

Inu & Uma: *look at Marian with an expression of exasperated disdain*

Phillip: Speaking of girls suffering horrible fates, where's my daughter? I need to make sure that she's all right...

Lydia: :giggle: Hey, Dad. I'm fine-

Flora: *breaking off the embrace with Annie and turning to Lydia* Lydia, what were you thinking, going to that castle? You had your father and I worried sick!

Lydia: I wanted to help rescue Momoko-

Phillip: Don't you know what could have happened to you?!?

Lydia: Yes... >_<; don't remind me, please...

Sunlight: You do realize that I would never let it happen, yes?

Phillip: Yes, I know, but that doesn't stop me from worrying about my daughter!!!

Lydia: ^^; Dad, I can take care of myself...

Phillip: I know, I just... I was so afraid that you'd get hurt...

Lydia: Aw, Dad, I'm fine!

Annie: Can we just get this talk underway?

Justin: *whispers something into Phillip's ear*

Phillip: ...Matthew what? :squee: Finally! Oh, those two are going to be so happy together!

Torch: ^^; Uhhhhh...

Matthew: ... ... ...Please don't embarrass me...

Mickey: *Mickey, snarling with rage, gestures threateningly at Matthew.* ...You. You will not have Torch. She's mine!

Matthew: Oh God this again ...Yeah, I'm gonna have to doubt that. Your relationship with Torch is exactly like the one I used to have with Uma, with a side order of Viv's relationship with Ne.

Miriam: :? Viv? :x Who is this "Viv"?

Matthew: Speaking of the former... *to Uma* Hey, Uma! Would you mind helping me put Mickey in his place again? The moron still thinks he has a shot at seducing Torch!

Uma: I don't suppose Custom Robo are out of the equation?

Ryu: *takes Ray Mk.IV* I'll be taking this, seeing as I commissioned you to make it for me. Remember?

Uma: I will need time to arm myself for the war of the morons.

Inu: I have nothing better to do. I'll join this fight.

Mickey: I'll put you in a coffin if you don't back off!!!

Matthew: ...Did you just threaten to hurt Uma and Inu?

Mickey: No, just you.

Matthew: Good, that means I don't have to break your neck.

Annie: MATTHEW!!!!!

Matthew: What? I broke up with Uma for the sake of her safety. I'm not gonna let some punk hurt her!

Annie: Could you please not stoop to Mickey's level?

Matthew: I thought he was making a death threat against Inu and Uma-

Mickey: Stooping to my level?!? WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?!?!?

Matthew: ...It means using murder as your solution to every problem.

Mickey: Hey! I only want Amelia dead!!! ...Well, her and any boy who tries to win Torch over... I will be the one to have her!

Matthew: For God's sake!!! That sort of behavior is exactly why she wants nothing to do with you!

Eric: ...Oh God, that is just like Viv...

Matthew: *to Mickey* I take back what I said about you being as bad as I was... you're worse!

Mickey: You have a death wish? I'll be happy to cremate you on the spot if you keep this up!

Matthew: ...If you're going to try to take my life, then I'll do whatever I must to defend myself. So if you value your bones being intact, I would recommend against trying to hurt me.

Torch: WOULD YOU TWO CUT THIS OUT?!?!?!?!?!?

Matthew & Mickey: ...

Torch: Guys, just... stop. How many times do I have to tell you that Sky's the boy of my dreams?

Mickey: That little coward?!? Ha! He's not even worth frying... he doesn't stand a chance! He'll never be your "knight in shining armor"!

Torch: Oh, I'll soon strip him of his cowardice. Just you wait!

Matthew: :facepalm: Uh, Torch...

Torch: Just, well, I'm gonna have to be gentle about it.

Justin: *to Ivy* Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Ivy: *to Justin* I am very much afraid right now...

So, I'd like to post another SSB4 moveset I made. This one's an update of the SSBB Corsola moveset.

Design: …It’s Corsola. #222 in the National Pokédex. It’s round, spiky, and pink.
222Corsola by Luigifan18


Series Symbol: Pokémon symbol (Poké Ball)

Stats:
Speed: 1/5 (As a Rock-type, Corsola is pretty slow, with a running speed slightly slower than Jigglypuff’s. This makes it the slowest character in the game. It very well may end up relying on its special moves to get around. It does have a ridiculously fast swim speed, but its chances to make use of that will be few and far between.)
Strength: 2.8/5 (It hits harder than Jigglypuff, but it’s still not exactly a heavy hitter.)
Defense: 5/5 (Corsola’s hard body actually enables it to take significantly less damage than other characters would from most attacks; it has an innate +50 Defense boost (and can still get Defense boosts as normal from equipment). It also has some innate flinch resistance and launch resistance above and beyond what its high weight would normally grant it; while its flinch resistance isn’t as great as Bowser’s, it’s still one of the few characters to be able to just shrug off attacks regardless of what it’s doing, at least at lower damage percentages. To top it all off, its shield is the biggest and most resilient in the game, and it can perform a perfect shield slightly more easily than other characters.  Overall, Corsola is probably one of the toughest characters to KO, even though it’s only slightly bigger than Jigglypuff.)
Weight: 4.5/5 (Corsola’s much heavier than its small size would suggest, thanks to its solid Rock-type body. It’s not quite as heavy as the likes of Bowser or Charizard.)
Jump: 2.2/5 (Corsola only has one midair jump, like the majority of characters, and neither of its jumps go very high. In addition, it falls just as quickly as the Star Fox characters.)
Recovery: 1/5 (Corsola’s ridiculously good at not being blasted off the stage, but if that does happen, it’s not terribly good at making it back on. Spikes can help it quite a lot, but its single (lackluster) midair jump and lack of a decent recovery move do it no favors. Falling quickly does not help it in the slightest, either.)

Attributes (Detailed Summary):
Walking Speed: 0.5
Dashing Speed: 1
Air Speed: 0.7
Falling Speed (Maximum): 2.2
Falling Speed (Acceleration): 0.95
Falling Speed (Fast-Fall): 3.96 (80% increase)

Yes, I’ve come up with a moveset for Corsola. It’s so cute and pink and loveable, I just had to. I’ve actually had this moveset in mind since Melee! Now, Corsola is sort of a clone character. Namely, its moveset has many similarities to Jigglypuff’s. No, I’m not joking. Both of them are characters who are rather overspecialized, to the detriment of their overall fighting capacity, but mastering their specialized element can make them into highly effective fighters. Jigglypuff’s specialty is aerial combat. In contrast, Corsola specializes in defensive combat. Its recovery capabilities can only be described as “crappy”, but it takes a lot to make it need to recover in the first place. Whereas taking the offensive is Jigglypuff’s only real hope of victory, it’s a horrible idea for Corsola. Its attacks are a little sluggish and weak compared to the rest of the roster, which means that it’ll likely lose in a straight-up slugfest. However, Corsola has some innate defensive qualities to help it survive. It’s quite heavy in spite of its small size, and it can resist some damage, knockback, and flinching from any attack that hits it. Its shield is also extremely sturdy and will take a brutal beatdown to break through (barring an unblockable attack). To top that off, Corsola’s moves are very good for keeping opponents off balance and unable to mount an offensive. Fight smartly and abuse Corsola’s defensive tools, and you may be able to get through a match without being blasted off the stage even once.

Equipment Used:

Offense: X Attack
Defense: X Defense
Speed: X Speed

On-Stage Appearance: A Poké Ball is tossed onto the stage, and Corsola emerges from said Poké Ball. It looks around, then gets into a fighting stance.

Basic Attacks:

Jab Combo: Bubble:

Attack #1: Corsola shoots a bubble directly forward, which travels a short distance and does 2% damage (plus flinching) on contact.
Jab infinite: Corsola continues shooting bubbles forward. Each bubble operates just like the first – 2% damage with minor flinching. There's virtually no lag between bubbles, making this good for racking up damage and disrupting enemy attacks.
Jab finisher:  Corsola launches a larger bubble that does 5% damage and knocks the foe away.

Tilt Attacks:

Forward Tilt: Corsola does a forward somersault, trying to slash its foe with the spikes on its back for 10% damage (or 12% if you hit with the tips of Corsola’s spikes). Note that if Corsola’s spikes are missing, this move will lose some of its range and knockback; it will also do only 7% damage.
Up Tilt: Corsola leaps up a short distance into the air, trying to impale foes with the spikes on its back for 9% damage (or 11% if you hit with the tip of Corsola’s spikes). Note that if Corsola’s spikes are missing, this move will lose some of its range and knockback, as well as doing only 5% damage.
Down Tilt: Aqua Jet: Corsola blasts the ground with a jet of water for 9% damage.

Dash Attack: Horn Attack: Corsola leaps forward, trying to jab its foe with the horn on its forehead for 14% damage.

Ledge Attack: Corsola leaps up onto the ledge and kicks up a bunch of rocks (about 6 or so), doing 2% damage per rock and knocking foes away a bit. The damage is very good for a ledge attack, but only on a single opponent; against a crowd, the damage gets spread out among the opponents, so it doesn’t hurt as much.

Rising Attack: Corsola leaps up and sprays water all around it, doing 7% damage and knocking foes away.

Smash Attacks:

Forward Smash: Mud-Slap: Corsola sprays dirt at its opponent, doing 10%-14% damage. This attack has no knockback against grounded opponents which are facing Corsola, but it can stun a target as if he/she was hit by a Deku Nut (the duration of the stun being dependent on the charge). Against a foe in midair or with his/her back turned to Corsola, this move has decent knockback. It has good range, but it’s somewhat slow and easy to see coming. It’s also absorbable, so watch out for that.
Up Smash: Spike Cannon: Corsola launches the spikes on its back into the air to impale opponents. It has 4 spikes, so it launches 4 missiles into the air, each of which does 9%-12.6% damage  and inflicts good knockback. Each spike vanishes once it has hit someone or traveled a set distance (which increases based on charge time). This move is very quick and has fantastic vertical range, but it’s impossible to spam, since Corsola needs 2.8 seconds to regrow its spikes  after losing them. Trying to use this move before Corsola’s spikes have regrown results in Corsola just bucking uselessly like a crippled rodeo horse. Also, the spikes can be reflected.
Down Smash: Rock Blast: Corsola summons 2-5 rocks (the amount being based on charge time) and sets them rolling along the ground in front of it one after the other. Each rock is as big as Corsola is and does 11-15.4% damage  and severe knockback on contact. However, the rocks take a while to launch, move forward slowly (unless going downhill, though they're still a good bit faster than Corsola itself on level ground), doing 12% damage to a rock is sufficient to break it, and they also break upon colliding with anything (a character, a wall, an object, etc…. well, okay, they won’t break if they collide with an item that attacks can’t interact with, like a Beam Sword, but everything else will do the trick); they’ll even break if they roll off a ledge and land on a platform below! Also, trying to use this move when Corsola is on a hill facing uphill will just make the rocks roll right back down into Corsola (with hilarious results… let’s just say that it’s not immune to its own rocks and leave it at that). They can make it up a short slight incline (like on Castle Siege’s first tier), but even a small hill will be sufficient to make the rocks do an about-face. Even without hills, the rocks can be reflected (though it’s still entirely possible for them to hurt their new “owner”). On the bright side, the rocks don’t go away until they’ve been broken or fallen off the stage.

Aerial Attacks:

Neutral Aerial: Corsola faces the screen and spins around, doing 9% damage to anyone it collides with (not unlike Kirby’s neutral aerial, except that this move scores a single strong hit instead of multiple weak hits). This move has far less range if Corsola is missing its spikes, but is otherwise unaffected.
Forward Aerial: Corsola flips forward and tries to impale its foe on its spikes for 13% damage (8% if its spikes are missing). This has very good knockback, but rather poor start-up lag .
Back Aerial: Corsola rotates backwards and tries to impale its foe on its spikes for 13% damage (8% if its spikes are missing). This has very good knockback, but rather poor ending lag .
Up Aerial: Corsola somehow generates an energy field between its spikes, zapping opponents for 16% damage. (No, I don’t understand this one, either. I mean, Corsola’s implied to have some sort of mystical power, but… what the heck?) This move has excellent knockback and a very short start-up and cooldown window, but its range is very short, and it’s outright unusable if Corsola doesn’t have its spikes (trying it will just make Corsola fizzle and twitch a bit).
Down Aerial: Whirlpool: Corsola forms a small whirlpool beneath itself and spins, trying to suck foes into the vortex to hit them up to 8 times for 2% damage each. The final hit acts as a Meteor Smash, but Corsola has no business trying to spike anyone, seeing as it probably won’t get back to the stage itself.

Throws:

Grab: Corsola fires a large bubble forward that engulfs the foe if it hits; Corsola then positions itself to attack its helpless foe. (The bubble will pop when the foe breaks free from the grab or is thrown. It will also pop after traveling a short distance if it doesn’t hit anyone; the range is about equal to Olimar’s grab, except that this grab is a bit slower.)
Pummel: Corsola fires another bubble into the one containing the foe, flooding it for 1% damage. (Basically, Corsola’s trying to asphyxiate the foe… creepy.) This pummel is absurdly quick (the fastest in the game), but it’s also very weak.
Forward Throw: Power Gem: Corsola summons about 10 tiny, glowing rocks, which slam into the foe for 1% damage each and launch him/her up and forwards.
Back Throw: Corsola rolls over the foe, doing 15% damage (or 12% without its spikes) and launching him/her directly backwards.
Up Throw: Earth Power: Corsola makes the ground beneath the foe erupt with power, doing 15% damage and launching the foe straight up.
Down Throw: Slam: Corsola jumps onto the opponent, inflicting 16% damage and launching the foe directly forward.

Special Moves:

Neutral Special (Default): Rollout: This move is very similar to Jigglypuff’s Rollout. Hold the B button to charge it up, then release it to launch Corsola forward at high speed. The more you charge the move, the faster Corsola goes. This move is far stronger than Jigglypuff’s Rollout, dealing 25-50% damage  (based on the charge) and inflicting major knockback; however, it’s a real pain in the butt to control. Corsola doesn’t roll along the ground so much as it bounces, thanks to its spiny protrusions colliding with the ground and catapulting it into the air (not very high, mind you, but still). Worse still, it can only turn around when it’s actually on the ground, and if it bounces up into the air while approaching a ledge, it’ll most likely sail right over the edge. Given Corsola’s crappy recovery capabilities, this is a very bad thing. So, basically, you should only use this when you’re absolutely sure that you’re going to hit something. Otherwise, enjoy your self-destruct! (Note that Corsola won’t bounce if its spikes are gone, but in practice, you won’t be able to fire off a fully charged Rollout before they’ve regrown anyways.)
Neutral Special (Custom 1): Inexorable Rollout: Corsola has super armor during its Rollout, passes through characters instead of bouncing off, and doesn’t bounce up as high or as frequently while rolling. However, it does slightly less damage (24-48%), is slower in both charging and movement speed, and trying to turn around just kills its momentum dead.
Neutral Special (Custom 2): Rollout Vault: Upon releasing the move, Corsola launches itself slingshot-style through the air at high speed. It charges much faster than the default version and has slightly higher damage (26-52%), but the move is basically a glorified long jump that hurts like hell if Corsola slams into someone; indeed, it’s more like Diddy Kong’s Monkey Flip than Jigglypuff or Corsola’s Rollout. Thus, it’s not very good for blasting into someone from across the map. On the other hand, its quick execution speed and low ending lag makes it a fairly good horizontal recovery, and it can even be used repeatedly without touching the ground (or, it could, if not for Corsola’s horribly low jumps and high falling speed).

Neutral Special Commentary: Corsola has always been a semi-clone of Jigglypuff, ever since I first came up with for the idea for its moveset while playing Melee as a young teenager. Rollout was one of my favorite moves to abuse back then, and I wanted Corsola to share Jigglypuff's specials (I didn't really come up with the non-special moves until I fleshed out the moveset for Brawl). I wanted Corsola's Rollout to be leaps and bounds above Jigglypuff's Rollout in terms of power, at the cost of being somewhat unwieldy to use. For SSB4, it took me a while to come up with the alternate versions. I decided not to change the power very much, instead changing the way it operates; one version is slower, making it easier to use without killing yourself but not as good for catching foes by surprise, and the other is less like Rollout and more like Monkey Flip.

Side Special (Default): Spikes: Corsola jabs forward with its forelimb, launching itself about 5 feet forward; as it does this, the spikes on its back shatter and break off, forming caltrops where Corsola was standing as it began the move. The caltrops remain on the ground for about 15 seconds. (The spikes on Corsola’s back regrow in about 2.8 seconds, but this move can still be used as much as you like; using it while the spikes are still regrowing will result in no caltrops being laid, though Corsola will still lunge forward, and can still injure opponents with its arm.) Opponents that touch the caltrops take 2% damage and are launched an extremely short distance straight up; in all likelihood, the foe will land right back on the caltrops for more damage… over and over and over again. Opponents bouncing around on caltrops are unable to attack, jump, block, dodge, or really do anything except for try to DI themselves off the caltrops, since the interval between landings on the caltrops is much shorter than the time it would take for the unfortunate opponents to recover from the hitstun they cause. A smart Corsola player will take steps to prevent them from doing that, like laying more caltrops. The arm lunge itself only does about 5% damage, and it has relatively minor knockback straight up (making it essentially a weaker version of Jigglypuff’s Pound). Opponents caught in the exploding spikes take an additional 7% damage and are launched up a fairly good distance (plus some more knockback carrying them behind Corsola, like how Jigglypuff’s Pound worked in Melee). Furthermore, this move can be used in midair to essentially “push” Corsola forward a short distance, just like Jigglypuff’s Pound. The spikes that this move uses to lay caltrops are the same ones that are launched in Corsola’s Spike Cannon attack, so you can’t lay caltrops and then use Spike Cannon immediately afterwards, nor can you use Spike Cannon and then lay caltrops immediately afterwards. Oh, and the "exploding spikes" part only occurs as Corsola is laying caltrops, so if you can't lay caltrops, you can't have Corsola's spikes explode, either.
Side Special (Custom 1): Wide Spikes: Corsola lays caltrops over a much wider area – three times the width of the default side special. However, the spikes have five times the knockback. This is not actually a good thing, as it makes it easier for enemies to escape.
Side Special (Custom 2): Stone Edge: Instead of laying caltrops, Corsola causes a large spire of rock to jut out of the ground behind it when it finishes its lunge. (If it used the move in midair, it generates a small rock platform beneath it as it starts the move, and the spire emerges from that.) The spire of rock does 30% damage to anyone it hits and launches them high up into the sky, but it takes a second to emerge and is somewhat slow, making it easy to dodge. It also crumbles immediately after it forms, making it useless as a trap. The move still destroys Corsola’s spikes, preventing it from being spammed (Corsola can’t generate another spire until its spikes have regrown).

Side Special Commentary: This move is the crux of Corsola’s defensive game. The default version is absurdly difficult to escape from, with smash DI being pretty much the only way to get away once caught on the spikes. This can give Corsola the time it needs to do pretty much whatever it needs to, including using its down special. The first alternate version is useful for restricting the space foes can fight on and making it hard for them to approach. The second alternate version isn’t a trap, but it is the best KO move in Corsola’s arsenal (even rivaling its Final Smash) and can also function as a decent anti-air move (it doesn’t go as high as the Up Smash, but it’s pretty close). However, it can be hard to hit with (hey, it’s Stone Edge; Smogon calls that move “Stone Miss” for a reason). Oh, and on top of all that, all three versions can be useful for horizontal recovery, just like Jigglypuff’s Pound. Just don’t expect Corsola to be able to come back from the edge of the screen – it can’t hang in the air like Jigglypuff.

Up Special (Default): Hypnosis: Corsola generates a pulse of psychic energy around itself, putting nearby foes to sleep. The range is normally somewhat short (though longer than Jigglypuff’s Sing), but it can be extended by holding the special move button to charge up the move. The move also has a very short active window, so a well-timed dodge can avoid it outright; on the other hand, it also has very low ending lag, so Corsola isn’t vulnerable for very long. Because Corsola’s moveset is almost devoid of big devastator attacks (e.g. something on par with Falcon Punch, Jigglypuff’s Rest, Luigi’s Super Jump Punch, Warlock Punch, etc.), with the possible exception of Stone Edge, the time when Corsola’s opponents are asleep may be best used running away so that you can use Rest. Or, you could use the time for a point-blank Rollout attack. (Also, no, this move does not help Corsola’s recovery capabilities at all.)
Up Special (Custom 1): Brine: Corsola surrounds itself in a swarm of bubbles for a moment (with an area equal to the default Hypnosis), causing steady damage to anyone who dares to get near. Curiously enough, the more damage victims already have, the more they take. The bubbles also push enemies away from Corsola, and if it is in midair, they cause it to float in the air for a moment, which can help its recovery. However, its startup is a good bit longer than Hypnosis.
Up Special (Custom 2): Gravity: Anyone near Corsola gets meteor smashed straight down towards the ground (or the abyss, if they are not above solid ground). Foes already on solid ground get pushed violently away from Corsola, akin to a weaker version of Master Giant’s shout. The range is equal to Corsola’s regular Hypnosis (so, it’s nowhere near as large as when Arceus uses the move). This version of Corsola’s up special also has much, much worse ending lag than the other two, and the starting lag is pretty bad as well.

Down Special (Default): Rest: Corsola falls asleep, and wakes up 4 seconds later. Unlike Jigglypuff’s Rest, this move is useless for attacking; there’s no buildup of energy in Corsola’s center of gravity, so this move won’t be sending anyone flying. However, Corsola heals itself for 30% damage for every second it remains asleep  (1% damage every 2 frames). Yes, that’s right, Corsola can heal itself at will, and at an alarmingly quick rate, no less. Being attacked (specifically, anything that would make Corsola flinch) will immediately wake Corsola up and stop its healing, though, so it’s not like it’ll be able to recover its health in the thick of battle; it’ll have to somehow break away from the action first. Since Corsola is unable to outrun any of the other characters in the game, nor can it jump very well, Spikes, Hypnosis, or a Smash attack will be practically necessary to pull that off. But if it can get a quiet moment to itself, it can get itself back to full health very quickly.
Down Special (Custom 1): Mirror Coat: Corsola’s rate of recovery is drastically reduced (5% per second), and it doesn’t sleep for as long per use (only 3 seconds). However, it reflects projectiles while asleep, and can counter attacks at the precise moment it falls asleep; a foe that hits Corsola at that precise moment effectively hits themselves with their own attack, leaving Corsola unharmed. Unlike Bide, Corsola is completely invincible, even to grabs and unblockable attacks, at the precise moment it falls asleep, though it can’t counter them. It’s also affected by physical attacks normally while it sleeps.
Down Special (Custom 2): Bide: Corsola doesn’t recover damage while asleep at all, and only sleeps for 2 seconds. However, Corsola counters attacks while asleep. If an attack hits Corsola while it’s asleep, Corsola is completely unaffected, and whoever hit Corsola is basically hit with their own attack. Nothing beats the sheer comedy of getting Falcon Punched, and sending Captain Falcon flying instead of you. Corsola is vulnerable while waking up, though, so be careful. It also doesn’t reflect projectiles, though it’s as unaffected by them as it is by physical attacks. Grabs and other unblockable attacks do affect Corsola while it’s asleep.

Final Smash: Surf: Corsola summons a massive tidal wave of water to wash over the stage. This is very similar to the Norfair stage’s lava-wave hazard, with several differences. First, this wave is water, not lava, so it’s a Water-type attack, not Flame-type. Second, this wave does 20% more damage than Norfair’s wave, as well as a little bit more knockback. Third, no safe area is generated when this Final Smash is initiated, so the only ways to avoid it are to dodge with precise timing or to leap very high above the stage. Finally, there's less of a delay between Corsola using Surf and the resulting tsunami actually hitting the stage than there is for Norfair's lava wave appearing and hitting the stage.

Taunts:

Up Taunt: Corsola spins around once, balancing itself on one foot, and lets out a short cry.
Side Taunt: Corsola encases itself in a bubble and floats a few inches off the ground for a moment. The bubble then pops and Corsola drops.
Down Taunt: Corsola turns towards the screen and winks mischievously.

Victory Music: Same as the other Pokémon.

Victory Animation A: Corsola hops up and down, clearly enjoying itself.
Victory Animation B: Corsola blows a stream of bubbles at the screen and smiles sweetly.
Victory Animation C: Corsola blows a large bubble. It then admires its reflection in said bubble for a few seconds before the bubble pops in its face, leaving Corsola looking rather bewildered.

Interests
Michael: *to Damien* No, just the Belnades necklace-holders... the necklaces have a tendency to actively ensure that their powers will be manifested by their desired hosts.

Dream: *glares at the maid, looking deeply insulted*

Annie: *having just arrived, and now talking to Tori* So, let me get this straight. Miriam came here to face Ne, and he freaked out.

Miriam: That's right. :sniff: He... He still fears me... I have to leave him be. It's for the best. I'll need to find another way to help him overcome this trauma, but... but physically being present will only make it worse.

Luigifan: Hmmmm... If Leila can't stand Nikolai, but is best buddies with Ne, and Ne can't stand Miriam, but is best buddies with Leila, and Nikolai can't get Leila to trust him no matter what he does, but his goals are similar to Miriam's...

Leila: Huh?

Dream: I was chatting with Luigifan on the way here. In the future, Nikolai devotes himself to patching up the frayed relations between the Catholic Church and Slavic Neo-pagans.

Luigifan: So, well, I was thinking I could ship Ne with Leila and Nikolai with Miriam.

Miriam: ...

Leila: :? ...Uh, didI hear that correctly?

Nikolai: ...

Tori: I fail to even see what you are trying to even accomplish here...

Luigifan: ...I'm just trying to make everyone happy.

Tails: Er, I don't think the clock spirit I accidentally made will like that-

Miriam: Are you crazy? Nikolai tried to put Leila in the same sort of mess Snake-Jaw put Lydia in!

Maxmillian: :(

Justin: *wince*

Sunlight: ...

Lydia: *noticing Maxmillian's reaction* Comfort PLZ - Smileys Maxmillian... it wasn't your fault...

Miriam: *continuing on, oblivious to Maxmillian's discomfort and Lydia trying to comfort him* I can't trust Nikolai him not to hurt me - nearly getting my soul devoured by Trapestry one time was more than horrible enough!

Dream: You didn't nearly get your soul eaten, Miriam. I nearly got my soul eaten... Shiver ...brrr, that was horrible!!!! If not for Damien... jibbly, jibbly... *Dream shudders for a few moments before snapping out of her fear funk.* Haaah... Okay, I'm better now. Where was I? Oh, yes. Luigifan, I already told you, Nikolai ends up married to Leila-

Leila: ARE YOU FRICKIN' KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!? YOU'VE LOST YOUR MARBLES, DREAM!!!!! THAT WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER HAPPEN!!!!!!!

Nikolai: Emoticon - TT.TT

Luigifan: ...You heard Leila. She'll never accept Nikolai.

Dream: Yeah, right. She totally has his babies.

Nikolai: :blush: W-w-what?!?

Harry: :O_o: Are you kidding? He tried to kill her!!! ...Wait, how are babies made?

Damien: The storks will be the ones to decide if you get kids or not, Leila.

Nikolai: Blush Emote Uh, that's not how it works-

Artemis: *interrupting Nikolai* Err, not quite... I can see the passion in the eyes of Nikolai. He will repent as much as he feels he needs to so that he might grace Leila with his-

Dark Matt: No.

Luigifan: :O_o: Can we please keep things under triple-X level?

Luther & Lindsay: OMG SHOCK.

Harry: OMG ANOTHER SHOCK.

Artemis: *flatly* -love... *Artemis notices Luther, Lindsay, Leila, Harry, and... well... pretty much everyone giving her funny looks.* What? Were you expecting me to say something else?

Dark Matt: Actually, yes. Though I'm glad that we weren't on the same page this time...

Luigifan: :phew: I totally thought she was going to say "pen"- *smacked by Luther* Ow!

Leila: *Leila looks about ready to throttle Dream.* Shut... up... about... me... being... with... Nikolai! It! Won't! Happen!

Dream: Ha, we'll see about that.

Nikolai: :admire:

Leila: Why the hell are you looking at me like that, Nikolai?!? You're creeping me out!!!

Nikolai: Sweat Drop revamp I... I just really love you, and... uh... 2. Love My desire for you is overwhelming-

Leila: You mean your desire to see me killed?!?

Nikolai: NO!!!!!!! That's the exact opposite of what I want!!!

Artemis: *continuing right where she left off, in spite of Nikolai and Leila's antics* Dream, on the other hand... Yeah, that will be a different story. A very naughty story.

Damien: :iconblushingmadplz:

Dream: *Dream does a spit-take, and spends a few moments coughing and blushing profusely.* Oh, my... :giggle: I can hardly wait...

Michael: :O_o: I am very glad Uncle Reuben wasn't here to hear that...

Justin: :O_o: And I thought my sister was getting into trouble...

Lydia & Sunlight: HEY!!!!!!! :x

Maxmillian: :?

Dream: W-where was I... Oh, right? As I was saying, Nikolai's not the right guy for Miriam, either. No... if it's not Ne, the next best candidate is Sean O'Toole.

Luigifan: Sean O'Toole... You mean, Donovan's son?

Dream: Yep.

Annie: *looking rather exasperated by the hostility between Leila and Nikolai* Argh... Anyone here able to call Nikolai's parents?

Nikolai: Huh? Why?

Annie: I want this mess sorted out once and for all. Which means Leila's family needs to have a talk with your family about this.

Nikolai: Er, that won't help. My family is kinda scared stiff of you guys. They don't want to be seen fraternizing with the "enemy". If Zharnev tried to kill me for "failing" to hand Leila over to him, what do you think he'll do to my mom and dad when they have an interaction with Leila's parents that doesn't involve the latter dying, never mind a friendly conversation?

Everyone: ...

Luther: Nikolai... you're saying your parents would try to kill me and Lindsay?!?

Nikolai: Sadly, they wouldn't have much of a choice in the matter. They'd have to kill you, or Zharnev would have them murdered. Just like he tried to kill me when I let Leila slip through his fingers.

Everyone: ...

Carnation: ...I'm glad my father wasn't here to hear that...

Lindsay: Agreed... knowing him, he'd probably go on a rampage... ^^;

Leila: Grump Argh. Blast that Zharnev... :steaming: That bear is so rotten...

Nikolai: Agreed. I'm willing to face death at Zharnev's hands to protect you, but my parents are terrified of the guy, and I can't blame them.

Leila: ... ... ...You are not serious.

Nikolai: I am serious, Leila. Love I would lay down my life to protect you... I love you. And I'd go to any lengths to prove it to you... I really care about you, Leila. I want nothing more than to keep you safe.

Leila: Paranoid Angry emoticon YOU'RE LYING!!!!!! *tazes Nikolai*

Nikolai: *drops to the ground like a sack of potatoes* flail plz

Matthew: :facepalm: See, this is the sort of stuff Ne's getting sick and tired of.

Annie: :iconsweatdropplz: Okay, then, scratch that plan. Guess we're not having a peace talk with the Velenovas anytime soon. We'll just have to have the Caliburs and the Mokarys talk out their problems. Miriam, I know you don't really want to make Ne freak out again, but we all need to get this settled.

Miriam: sad It is settled. I can't be near Ne unless he doesn't cringe at the sight of me.

Eric: And there's a matter of a psychotic poltergeist...

Annie: Eric? How long have you been here?

Eric: Since Ne started having a King mogeko-induced heart attack and Viv started going nuts.

Tails: Oh boy. How bad is it?

Eric: She was swearing to murder Miriam to protect Ne. She was also suggesting that Miriam stay in Mogeko Castle, which was pissing Myla off to no end, and... *sigh* It was very, very nasty... Honestly, Ne turning Miriam away is probably the best thing that could have happened - otherwise the scat would have hit the fan by now.

Cassandra: ... ... :x ...Where is this Viv?

Eric: Probably inside the house. *to Annie* I'm glad to see that you're safe, Mom... How are Janine and Anastasia?

Annie: They're fine.

Eric: Good, I was getting worried about them.

*meanwhile*

Mordred: ... *Mordred, who is thankfully oblivious to the conversation between Eric and his parents, begins typing a text message.*

Lydia: Hm? Mordred? What are you doing?

Mordred: I'm recruiting Katelyn to help put an end to this nonsense. Running away from your fears doesn't help you. If you keep running away, you'll never escape them. The only way to overcome your fears is to face them head-on. So we are going to force Ne to face his fears. *Mordred finishes the text message and sends it.*

Miriam: ohmahgawd You're going to what?!?

Mordred: This is for his own good. We have to break the cycle of fear and amnesia. We have to make Ne overcome his trauma.

Miriam: :imhorrified: Mordred, brainwashing him won't help!

Luigifan: ...We're not going to pull a Ruby Sparks here, are we?

Annie: ...A what?

Luigifan: You don't remember that movie?

Mordred: We're not going to brainwash him. We're just going to drive him to confront his fear. From there, he will have to overcome it on his own.

Miriam: Upset And what if he can't?

Mordred: If he can't, then he's not good enough for Cassandra Belnades' daughter.

Cassandra: :?

Miriam: Mordred, I don't want Ne to suffer!

Mordred: What? Mom's attitude towards fear is what inspired this idea. To be afraid is to be weak, to allow your life to be controlled by others. You can only be strong if you can conquer your fears, ignore your unease, and act in spite of your misgivings.

Cassandra: Mordred...

Torch: ... *thinking* Okay, now I really have to help Sky get over his issues.

Tori: *to Mordred* You are... really starting to irritate me. Have you no sympathy? My son has been severely damaged by these monsters, and you seem to be brushing this whole thing off as something to overcome to see if he's "worthy" of something that he isn't even aware of. How easy is it for you to ignore the suffering this has caused to those that are his family?

Mordred: I'm just trying to do what's best for my sister!

Miriam: >_<;

Katelyn: *arrives* Hey. So, I heard that you found out what's bugging Ne...

Miriam: Yes. Mogeko Castle... I already conquered the castle, but Ne still fears it. Listen, I'm not sure that this is a good idea-

Mordred: Miriam, I'm trying to help you and Ne. *to Katelyn* Katelyn, I need you to suppress Ne's defense mechanisms - to make it so he can't push away his fear of Mogeko Castle. I need you to force him to face it head-on.

Annie: Uh, guys? I was thinking more along the lines of the Caliburs and Mokarys talking this out.

Mordred: Of course. We should let the conversation start naturally. Now, let's go inside and get this started.

Katelyn: Er, what about my cousin Sean-

Mordred: :x NO. I am not letting that creepy stalker have his way with my sister.

Miriam: :? Sean who? I have a stalker?

Dream: Sean O'Toole. Didn't you hear me talking with Luigifan?

Miriam: No.

Dream: Exasperation

Torch: *exchanges an aside glance with Saru* Wait, what? Miriam doesn't even remember who Sean is?!?

Matthew: The irony here is so thick, you could cut it with a knife...

Sunlight: Uh, didn't she wipe her own memories?

Lydia: Yes, she did... right before assaulting you... :(

Katelyn: *to Mordred* He's not a stalker! He's just painfully shy, and doesn't dare to make a move as long as Miriam's fixated on Ne!

Mordred: Just. Help. Us. Fix. Ne. I'd much rather see Miriam get more mimic genes into the Mimic's Necklace bloodline than some wimpy kid with a useless Stand.

Tails: Uh-oh.

Matthew: *exchanges an aside glance with Uma* Uh... This is awkward.

Matt: *to Mordred* Wait, what? :steaming: MY KIDS ARE NOT GOING TO BE BRED LIKE CATTLE!!!!!!!

Mordred: What? Come on, Matt, don't you want to see your bloodline strengthened with more mimic genes?

Matt: *roars at Mordred* What?! You think bloodline is all that matters here?! What about his happiness?! WHAT ABOUT WHAT NE ACTUALLY WANTS?!

Matthew: :cower: Holycrap that's scary.

Mordred: :O_o: ...The hell is your problem, Matt? Just calm down...

Matt: My problem is that you seem to think Ne and Miriam need to marry each other for some arbitrary and unlikely "power boost" to their hypothetical kids.

Mordred: Well, considering that we have loonies like Mysto, Necrongius, and Malthus to deal with, I think Miriam's children would need to be as strong as possible-

Matt: *is now even more unhappy* So you want to put a bullseye on Ne's head?!?

Mordred: He already has one, so I don't see what the problem is.

Matt: What-

Mordred: Or did you forget about the Light Demon you just beat the **** out of? There's probably gonna be plenty more where he came from.

Miriam: :O_o: :whimper: Emoticon Ne... oh, no... :worry:

Matt: The fact remains that you're treating my kids like livestock for you all to breed with! They have feelings, you genetics-obsessed freaks!

Miriam: Uh, Mordred? It'd be one thing for Mom, Dad, or Michael to be trying to "strengthen the bloodline", but to hear that sort of talk coming from my younger brother is a little disturbing. Not to mention that you have a criminal record.

Mordred: So? I care very much that Mom's bloodline is kept going strong to the next generation!

Michael: ...You've been spending too much time with Luigifan, haven't you?

Luigifan: :x OI!!!

Mordred: Actually, no, I've been hanging out more with Randy...

Cassandra: *to Mordred* Dear... let Miriam pick her own mate... *to Randy* Could you please stop being creepy?

Katelyn: And Sean would make a great mate for Miriam! Invisible Sun bestows people with energy. That could be immensely useful for... well, for the holder of any of the Belnades clan necklaces.

Miriam: ^^; Uh... That's nice, but I was kinda thinking more of the strength of the children I bear, and I hardly know this "Sean", so I would much prefer Ne-

Matt: MY CHILDREN ARE NOT LIVESTOCK!!!!!! STOP TREATING THEM LIKE THEY ARE!!!!!!

Matthew: :facepalm:

Miriam: What? Mordred has a point. I've got a lot of enemies, so I want my children to be strong enough to survive if they get attacked!

Matt: And my point is that Ne wants nothing to do with you, you selfish bi-

???: Katelyn's right, guys... It's true that those who already have supernatural powers, like the power of mimicry, can't get Stands, but even so, Sean's energy-granting abilities would make him an excellent partner for Miriam.

Katelyn: Uncle Phillip? When did you get here?!?

Phillip: *appearing along with Flora* Just now. We heard from Maxmillian that the group that departed to Mogeko Castle has returned.

Flora: And we heard from Michael that King mogeko's curse was killing Ne...

Annie: Flora! Good to see you again! :hug: Don't worry about the curse, it's already been taken care of.

Flora: Hey, sis. :hug: Is everyone all right?

Annie: Yes, Flora, we're all fine.

Miriam: *to Matt* See, I told you that curse thing wasn't made up. :sniff: But even with the curse removed by King mogeko's death, it didn't make much of a difference... Ne's still terrified of me...

Michael: Well, he did just get supernaturally driven into an outrageously intense fight-or-flight reaction. I'm not surprised that he'd still be a little jumpy. But, yeah, just when it looked like Ne was about to have a heart attack, the curse just... went away. It just abruptly stopped, and Ne began to calm down. I'm guessing that King mogeko was struck down at precisely that moment.

Phillip: That would be my guess, too.

Michael: Of course, at the time, I was afraid that the curse went away because King mogeko had managed to capture Miriam and was proceeding to do unspeakable things to her-

Cassandra, Miriam, & Mordred: :nausea: Please stop talking.

Michael: ^^;

Maid: Yeah, like nearly getting killed by Moge-ko wasn't extremely terrifying at at all. And then there's the other hundred-thousand-plus Mogekos that might have nearly killed him or did highly frightening actions in front of him.

Marian: Yeah, and killing all of them won't really do any good. You can tell a kid that the boogeyman doesn't exist all you want, they'll still fear him because they can still think about him.

Marion: There's still the time he ended up in there to deal with, regardless of the King's curse; that is likely why he's still afraid... Seeing Miriam reminds him of the fact that the Mogeko were after her, which reminds Ne of, well, the Mogeko themselves.

Marian: I guess the problem here is that on some subconscious level, Ne wanted to warn Miriam about the castle, but he's so terrified that trying to get his message to Miriam makes him afraid.

Miriam: ... ... ... :sniff: So... he's actually been trying to protect me this whole time? :sniff: T-that's so sweet of him...

Inu & Uma: *look at Marian with an expression of exasperated disdain*

Phillip: Speaking of girls suffering horrible fates, where's my daughter? I need to make sure that she's all right...

Lydia: :giggle: Hey, Dad. I'm fine-

Flora: *breaking off the embrace with Annie and turning to Lydia* Lydia, what were you thinking, going to that castle? You had your father and I worried sick!

Lydia: I wanted to help rescue Momoko-

Phillip: Don't you know what could have happened to you?!?

Lydia: Yes... >_<; don't remind me, please...

Sunlight: You do realize that I would never let it happen, yes?

Phillip: Yes, I know, but that doesn't stop me from worrying about my daughter!!!

Lydia: ^^; Dad, I can take care of myself...

Phillip: I know, I just... I was so afraid that you'd get hurt...

Lydia: Aw, Dad, I'm fine!

Annie: Can we just get this talk underway?

Justin: *whispers something into Phillip's ear*

Phillip: ...Matthew what? :squee: Finally! Oh, those two are going to be so happy together!

Torch: ^^; Uhhhhh...

Matthew: ... ... ...Please don't embarrass me...

Mickey: *Mickey, snarling with rage, gestures threateningly at Matthew.* ...You. You will not have Torch. She's mine!

Matthew: Oh God this again ...Yeah, I'm gonna have to doubt that. Your relationship with Torch is exactly like the one I used to have with Uma, with a side order of Viv's relationship with Ne.

Miriam: :? Viv? :x Who is this "Viv"?

Matthew: Speaking of the former... *to Uma* Hey, Uma! Would you mind helping me put Mickey in his place again? The moron still thinks he has a shot at seducing Torch!

Uma: I don't suppose Custom Robo are out of the equation?

Ryu: *takes Ray Mk.IV* I'll be taking this, seeing as I commissioned you to make it for me. Remember?

Uma: I will need time to arm myself for the war of the morons.

Inu: I have nothing better to do. I'll join this fight.

Mickey: I'll put you in a coffin if you don't back off!!!

Matthew: ...Did you just threaten to hurt Uma and Inu?

Mickey: No, just you.

Matthew: Good, that means I don't have to break your neck.

Annie: MATTHEW!!!!!

Matthew: What? I broke up with Uma for the sake of her safety. I'm not gonna let some punk hurt her!

Annie: Could you please not stoop to Mickey's level?

Matthew: I thought he was making a death threat against Inu and Uma-

Mickey: Stooping to my level?!? WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?!?!?

Matthew: ...It means using murder as your solution to every problem.

Mickey: Hey! I only want Amelia dead!!! ...Well, her and any boy who tries to win Torch over... I will be the one to have her!

Matthew: For God's sake!!! That sort of behavior is exactly why she wants nothing to do with you!

Eric: ...Oh God, that is just like Viv...

Matthew: *to Mickey* I take back what I said about you being as bad as I was... you're worse!

Mickey: You have a death wish? I'll be happy to cremate you on the spot if you keep this up!

Matthew: ...If you're going to try to take my life, then I'll do whatever I must to defend myself. So if you value your bones being intact, I would recommend against trying to hurt me.

Torch: WOULD YOU TWO CUT THIS OUT?!?!?!?!?!?

Matthew & Mickey: ...

Torch: Guys, just... stop. How many times do I have to tell you that Sky's the boy of my dreams?

Mickey: That little coward?!? Ha! He's not even worth frying... he doesn't stand a chance! He'll never be your "knight in shining armor"!

Torch: Oh, I'll soon strip him of his cowardice. Just you wait!

Matthew: :facepalm: Uh, Torch...

Torch: Just, well, I'm gonna have to be gentle about it.

Justin: *to Ivy* Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Ivy: *to Justin* I am very much afraid right now...
