(This was supposed to be done tomorrow, but I finished it earlier than expected. Enjoy! As Episode 1 was buried in Mikal's thread, here is a recap: YYW and bsh1 were going to get married, which made Thett sad, because Thett loved YYW. Everyone in the kingdom showed up, including King TUF. Imabench turned out to be the minister. He ridiculed Bubba. Airmax popped up and had a brief conversation with Imabench, following which, Imabench was banished.)

The Kingdom of DDO could have been ripped from a storybook. The village square comprised the heart of the kingdom. On this day, when YYW and bsh1 were meant to be married, the square itself was eclipsed by bustling market stands, as well as the more traditional imposing statues, and the large, ornate fountain, The royal palace overshadowed the square and, indeed, the rest of the kingdom. Large towers and spires extended above the palace, as if stabbing the sky. The highest spire was made of solid gold.

Thett paid no attention to the splendor of the palace. He stood before the fountain, nervously fingering the coin in his palm. The stone angel on the fountain seemed to be staring back at him, watching impassively. Water trickled out of its mouth. Thett closed his eyes and tossed the coin into the fountain.

"Hey, Thett!" Thett opened his eyes to see Crypto approaching him. "How are you?" Thett sighed.

"Better than I could be, I suppose."

"The wedding?" Thett nodded. "It was crazy!" Crypto continued. "Imabench got banished! Can you believe it? It's already in the Jifpop Chronicles!" Thett glanced over at Jifpop's stand. He could just discern Jifpop's voice over the crowd.

"Ding dong, the Duke is gone! The Duke of Trolls is really gone! DIng dong, the wicked Duke is gone!"

"I imagine he, at least, is happy," said Thett.

"Come." Crypto threw an arm around Thett's shoulders. "I know just the remedy."

"Did you just say remedy?" Thett asked as they departed the square.

On the opposite end of the market, sheltered by Krazzy's Troll-Hunting stand, Zaradi and ConservativePolitico held a whispered conversation.

"The kingdom's been in decline for a long time," hissed CP. "It's only fitting that Airmax come in to finish it off."

"Yes, but to leave?" Zaradi murmured back. "We need to fight this, not run from it."

"He made an example of Imabench," CP reminded Zaradi. "Airmax isn't backing down."

"Of course he isn't," Zaradi smiled. "What fun would that be?"

"AIrmax has Moderator magic," CP said. "We can't -" he broke off as YYW and bsh1 appeared, hand in hand, laughing. The four eyed each other for a moment.

"YYW," Zaradi nodded politely. "Bsh1."

"Such a pity Airmax ruined the marriage," CP commented. YYW frowned.

"Airmax didn't ruin anything. Of course bsh1 and I will still get married. We just want to wait for all the crazy to die down."

"Naturally." Zaradi nodded. "Well, don't let us keep you. I'm sure you have plenty of things you would rather...engage in." Bsh1 frowned, but YYW tugged at his hand.

"Let's get to that room I promised." The pair skipped off, gay as - but no comparison would suffice to explain it.

"They support him," CP said. "We can count them out."

"We should talk to Progressive," Zaradi said.

"Doesn't matter," CP countered firmly. "I'm still leaving."

"We need to fight this!" Zaradi shouted as CP walked away. CP turned back.

"Don't worry, Zaradi. I may be leaving the Kingdom of DDO. But I'll be back. I know just where to find the forces we need."

"Where?" Zaradi called, but CP had already vanished into the marketplace. Zaradi turned to go and found himself face-to-face with Krazzy.

"Trolls are scum!" Krazzy spat. "You wanna buy a weapon to kill some?"

Zaradi pushed past Krazzy and left the square.

Among the newer and lesser-known members, Airmax's actions had had a slightly different effect. Most of them had heard the legends of Airmax. Many people called him the Evil Queen, though Romanii and SeventhProfessor weren't sure why that was.

"I mean, he is a guy, right?" SeventhProfessor asked. Romanii was still occupied with examining SeventhProfessor's home.

"Not bad," he whistled.

Houses in DDO were divided based on the currency, called ELO. Ore_Ele had devised the national currency as a means to promote unity and effectiveness. The veteran members quickly raked up ELO like it was food before a famine, but there was still plenty out there if one knew where to look.

SeventhProfessor lived in the lower-middle class area of the Kingdom. Compared to the palace, he was downright poor, but he did better than a significant portion of the Kingdom. He could afford the bare necessities and then still have a little on the side.

"Thank you," SeventhProfessor answered. "Can I get you anything? Tea?"

"Ah, just water, thanks," replied Romanii. SeventhProfessor ducked into the kitchen for a few seconds and reemerged with a glass of water. He handed it to Romanii.

"Where's kbub?" Romanii inquired. SeventhProfessor shrugged.

"She'll be along shortly. Now, let's discuss Airmax."

"I've never seen him like that before," Romanii mused. "But I mean, it was justified, wasn't it? Imabench was a troll."

"Racist," SeventhProfessor muttered. Romanii backtracked.

"That's not what I meant! I meant, you know, he was kind of asking for it." SeventhProfessor looked out the window. The storm had cleared immediately after Airmax vanished from the wedding ceremony, but the clouds still hung in the sky, swollen, lurking. He didn't like the look of those clouds.

"He was," SeventhProfessor agreed, "but I don't think this is the end of it."

"What do you mean?" SeventhProfessor shrugged.

"I don't really know. I just have this feeling like it isn't over. Like the worst is yet to come." Romanii joined SeventhProfessor in gazing out the window. The streets were still clogged with debaters shouting hoarsely at one another. If he concentrated, Romanii could just make out the words.

"Idiot!" Somebody sneered. There was a puff of black smoke, and suddenly, one of the debaters disappeared. Romanii turned back to SeventhProfessor.

"Yeah. I know what you mean."

A rumble of thunder could be heard in the distance.

Awesome. Epicly awesome.
Solonkr~
I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I'm pleasantly surprised. You're very creative. :)

I actually read the whole thing, and that's surprising given that I have no attention span.

Good job. :D
