Y-Yes!

This is it. This is precisely the knowledge that I needed.

A magical beast -- Is there a magical beast somewhere? Professor Mokona! Uh. Demon! Demoness?! Is that surly angel still around? Oh, Erk! Do you still turn into a cat?!

Just kidding. 1% regained on the knowledge that Summoning is not restricted to Summon Spirits, more specifically, that he could formerly call Gremlins and a Gigantic Lizard Of Some Sort. 1% regained on the usage of the pact rings in the summoning process. 11% memory regain total, 0% remaining.))

Oh. A shame . . .

Perhaps it will work anyway! You used to be a magical beast, after all. I'll just make the pact with the spirit of Frufflums . . .

I do, on the other hand, know someone who can turn into a lightning rod.

A lightning rod? Impressive, but I don't think they count as beasts.

Now hold that face while I prepare; you're channeling the spirit of the inner feline quite nicely. Thanks for being a good sport, Erk.

Overcast skies . . . A perfect atmosphere to conduct an ancient magic ritual. Perhaps we'll even get some thunder to punctuate my every word.

. . . Say, do you taste copper?

Slkjkwlejraoiwejgel -- *thump*

At least I'm not on fire this time. . . . ....... My hat is burning, isn't it.

So . . . close . . .

And that is precisely the reason why we don't call people Fruffums.

By the Saint, that felt better than it should have.

I . . . forgive you . . . Fruffles . . .

Ah, close enough.

[And for the fourth time, Erk can be seen putting out the fire on Klarth's hat.]

Magical beasts..? Why do you have any particular need of one?

...Erk turns into a cat?

Date: 2009-08-23 01:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
To test out my latest theory, of course. In addition to spirits, you see, magic beasts and beings from the realm of makai are also capable of forming pacts with a summoner.

And oh, yes, he was quite popular with the ladies for a while.

Ah, I see! How interesting! I don't believe that my world had such practices in regards to magic...or at least, not exactly so. Anima magic in general requires the presence and communion with anima spirits.

Haha! Is that so?

I think Erk turning into a cat was only a one time thing, Klarth.

You're looking for magical beasts? I wonder if my magicite would work...

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
. . . It is a shame, isn't it? He's mentioned that, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Your magicite? You mean those stones you showed me earlier?

Date: 2009-08-23 04:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] allnaturalmagic.livejournal.com
Yes. I can't summon them, no matter what I try... perhaps you'd have some luck?

...[Horrified curiosity getting the better of him.]

What do you need one for?

Date: 2009-08-23 01:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
An experiment to press the boundaries of the knowledge of man. Specifically, me.

((I actually do have permission from a mod from a hundred years ago for Klarth to be able to contract with people, but it's not going to work this time around in case you were worried.))

Date: 2009-08-23 02:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] catslooklikeme.livejournal.com
...what KIND of experiment?

((What, me worry? Oh no no no. But interesting to know!))

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Well, the entrails will have to be stored in a glass jar for three months with the flesh-eating protozoa, and I can guarantee that I'll return at least two chambers of the heart --

W-wait! Come back! It's just a little ritual! I swear to use your powers appropriately; you swear to come to my aid if I call for you, and that's it.

Date: 2009-08-23 02:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] catslooklikeme.livejournal.com
Not funny!

...what, that's it? ...um, not to blow a major hole in the point of the experiment, but exactly how much help do you expect something like me to be in any given situation?

Date: 2009-08-23 02:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
That's not really the point. The point is to see if this works at all. It's an ancient magic that hasn't been studied properly for centuries; I used it back home, but it seems to have deserted me here on this island. Presumably because my contracts are out of range.

The contract is easily broken -- You, as the Summoned Beast, can break it at any time if you feel that I abuse it. Or if you just don't like me. I, as the Summoner, can call you to my side; I can also dismiss you, whereupon you return to wherever you were before.

Sound good?

Alright. Give it a whirl.

Very well. You appear to be most closely related to the element of Wind. Does the Opal Ring suit you?

Don't really know the first thing about jewelry, but sure.

. . . Try and take this a bit more seriously. I'm the one who has to call you 'mighty beast of the wind', sheesh.

Date: 2009-08-23 03:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Here goes. Try and look mighty.

"Oh mighty beast of the eternal winds, I beseech thee -- Submit to me as decreed upon the covenant of this ring. Know the name of thy Summoner, Klarth F. Lester!"

(Hurry up and agree.)

Date: 2009-08-23 03:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] catslooklikeme.livejournal.com
Oh, um. "I, Nall, recognize... thee and submit to thy will, Summoner Klarth!"

Date: 2009-08-23 03:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Alright! That should . . . uh. That should have . . . done it.

. . . Nothing's happening, is it?

Do flying cats count as magic beasts? Maybe I pronounced my name wrong.

Date: 2009-08-23 03:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] catslooklikeme.livejournal.com
Can't say I feel any different. Maybe you need a shinier ring?

I am not a flying cat. I am definitely magical, though.

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Tch. I must still be missing something. I'd thought remembering the pact was the key . . .

Thanks for trying, anyway.

I polish these every night, thanks.

Sorry, man. Better luck next time.
