The Matchmaker
SnuggleFest 2013

Location: Location: Snugglefest Portal Painting -> The MatchMaker

«You are presented with a scroll.»

It's Snugglefest, a time for love, wuv, and other sappy emotions. Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy this celebration with their 'shmoopy-doopy' because *dramatic pause* they don't have one! And so, in the name of love (and SCIENCE!), one revolutionary sorta-hero has endeavoured to save our fair townsfolk from their single lives! This Snugglefest, Kamui Magitek Industries proudly unveils the latest in matchmaking technology, the L.O.V.E. Machine version 0.0.02, which - for the mere cost of your participation - will match you with a special someone just for you!* The even will take place in Battleon town square on Snugglefest. See you there, you lucky devil you. ;-)

This message brought to you by the Advertomatic version 2.9.1, Kamui Magitek Industries, patent pending the creatian of a Lorian patent office (patent pending).

    *By participating you implicitly accept the risks of this alpha test and agree not to hold Kamui Magitek Industries - or its founder - liable for any broken hearts, slaps across the face, or flowers thrown at you during the course of the matchmaking experience.

    «Scene: You have arrived at the Battleon town square. The L.O.V.E. Machine v.0.0.02 steams and shakes in the background.»

    «You»: Nobody's here... Am I early or something?
    L.O.V.E. Machine: On the contrary, «You»! Your timing could not be more perfect!
    «You»: Then where is everyone else?
    L.O.V.E. Machine: Isn't it obvious? They're all out experiencing the wonders of a match made in programs, in predetermined dating locales.
    «You»: So, I'm late then.
    L.O.V.E. Machine: Heavens, no! I needed the extra time to match you up! Do you know how hard it is to find an ideal partner for someone with a resume as extensive as yours?
    «You»: ... Hard?
    L.O.V.E. Machine: VERY hard! I had to refine the criteria no fewer than fifty-one times just to bring the pool down to something that wouldn't fry my hard drive!
    L.O.V.E. Machine: I don't know how you walk down the street without beating your fans off you with a stick!
    «You»: Well, aheh, now that you mention it...
    L.O.V.E. Machine: But don't you worry! I've found a special someone just for you! Are you ready to meet your destiny and give it a big smooch?
    «You»: Well, it is that time of year, I guess...
    L.O.V.E. Machine: Wonderful! Just step right through the portal!

    «A portal appears. Stepping through it, you reappear in a room in an inn, where a rock sits at a table upon which there lies a bouquet of flowers.»

    «You»: ... A rock? That machine thought that a ROCK was my destiny? That's my best match???
    «You»: *sigh* ... So, do you come here often?
    «You»: You were a rolling stone, then? Because I certainly don't see any moss on you.
    «You»: Okay, this is just too weird even by my standards. Listen, rock, it's not you, it's-- Oh, by the Earth Lord, why am I bothering?
    «You»: It's a rock, for crying out loud! It's not like it cares! I'm outta here!

    «The rock emotes-- it's heart breaks. </3 You return to Battleon town square, where you find Warlic and Kamui.»

    Warlic: -- and, well, it just wasn't going to work out.
    L.O.V.E. Machine: I beg to differ! The data show that you two have a LOT in common, which speaks volumes to your compatibility!
    Warlic: That's the problem. Warlicia and I have TOO MUCH in common. We're very nearly the same person. That's just not what I'm looking for.
    Kamui: (thinking) Note to self: Account for preference of mystery over familiarity.

    «Captain Rhubarb and Floyd the Trobble enter.»

    Capt Rhubarb: Ahoy! Is this the line for the Snugglefest event?
    L.O.V.E. Machine: Captain! Trobble! Good to meet you! I have both of your results ready and waiting! Just step through the portal when you're ready! Your matches will be on the other side!
    Capt Rhubarb: Great! I've been looking forward to this.

    «The Cap'n turns to his trobble.»

    Capt Rhubarb: Listen, it's been fun and all, but I really think we need to start seeing other people... or little blue birds, in your case.

    «Floyd emotes-- his heart breaks. </3»

    Capt Rhubarb: This is for the best.

    «They each step through the portal. In an inn room, they both reappear.»

    Capt Rhubarb: Yaaaaarr! You have GOT to be kidding me!

    «Floyd emotes, giving off little hearts. <3 The Scene returns to Battleon town square.»

    Capt Rhubarb: You have a cruel sense of humor, you dirty bilge rat.
    Kamui: (thinking) Hmm... interesting reaction, outside expected parameters. I guess I need to recheck the base programming for errors. Let's see what we have here.

    «Kamui reaches through a small portal and pulls out a scroll.»

    Kamui: Okay... recent results: Rhubarb and Trobble: 87 compatibility... well, I guess there is always a Trobble on the Red Betty...
    Kamui: «You» and Geo... 100. Hmm... well, it would be a rocky relationship, but it COULD work...
    Kamui: Constantin and Safiria... 98?? That can't be right. I'll need to take a LONG look at the matching parameters later.
    «You» Hey, can I take a look at that?
    Kamui: Certainly.

    «Kamui shows the scroll to you.»

    «You»: Um... is this some kind of code or something?
    Kamui: Something like that. The results, though, are here, here, and here.

    «A brief pause. Then:»

    «You»: Kamui?
    Kamui: Yes?
    «You»: There's a minus sign in front of those numbers.

    «Another pause.»

    Kamui: ... Oh, of course. It must be treating the results as absolute values. That would explain a lot.
    «You»: That's a pretty big problem. I'm not sure I want to know who else it paired up.
    Kamui: Eh, nothing as bad as Constantin and Safiria. Zephyros and Valencia. Algern and the Lightbringer.
    Kamui: The only one that really stands out is how it paired Galanoth and Sheila.
    «You»: Why, what did it do with them? Let me see those results.


    «You»: Ooooh, that couldn't have ended well...


    «Scene: The Inn at the City of Deren.»

    Sheila: Galanoth, what a surprise.
    Galanoth: Sheila. I guess the machine paired the two of us up, then.

    «Jhan jumps out from behind the desk.»

    Jhan: Hello! Welcome to the fabulous Drakel Inn!
    Jhan: I'm your concierge, Jhan! And you must be the two we were told to expect! Well, rest assured, your dates will be here shortly.
    Galanoth & Sheila: What.
    Jhan: Don't you worry about a thing. At the fabulous Drakel Inn, we do everything to make sure your stay is--
    Galanoth: Let me guess, "fabulous"?
    Jhan: I was going to say "marvelous," actually, but that works, too! Please, allow me to take your helmet!
    Galanoth: NO.
    Jhan: On second thought, it does look rather dashing on you! Now, if you'll come right this way, I'll show you to your seats!

    «Scene fades. New Scene: Jhan leads Galanoth and Sheila to two separate tables.»

    Jhan: You and your date will be sitting here, m'lady!

    «He walks over to Galanoth.»

    Jhan: And you and your date will be sitting here, sir!
    ???: (off-Scene) Hello?

    «Jhan turns to face the direction from which the voice came.»

    Jhan: Ah! That must be our other guests! I'll be right back!

    «He leaves.»

    Sheila: ... This is awkward.
    ???: Well hellooo loverboy!

    «Kyrie and a Drakel named Kasn'hova enter. Everyone sits.»

    Kyrie: -- and then he said he'd take me to meet some girl called "Red Betty"! I mean, the nerve of it!

    «Kyrie puts her feet on the table. The Scene shifts to focus on the other table.»

    Kasn'hova: Wait, so you're saying that the Vartai have lived in secret for how long?
    Sheila: Are you really surprised? I mean, didn't the Drakel stay in their K'elds for--
    Kasn'hova: But that's completely different! We were isolated, yes, but you were hidden from the world!

    «Kyrie is now leaning on the table toward Galanoth.»

    Kyrie: -- and, anyway, that's what happened to my last ex.
    Galanoth: ...
    Kyrie: Oh, but I'd NEVER do something like that to you, darling.
    Galanoth: Yes, I'm sure you'd just write a song about me, or something...

    «Kyrie has fallen over backwards on the table.»

    Kasn'hova: Anyway, that's when I decided to put down my pen and fight.
    Sheila: That was awful noble of you, defending your K'eld in its time of need.
    Kasn'hova: Ha! I wish my reasons were that romantic! In all honesty, one of the orcs had just broken down my door, and I wasn't about to defend myself with just a pen.

    «Kyrie has somehow maneuvered her chair on top of the table; she is suspended upside-down, facing Galanoth.»

    Kyrie: -- said I was unstable. Can you imagine it? ME. UNSTABLE!
    Galanoth: ... I'm surprised he would say that. ... To your face.
    Kyrie: I know, right? You know, Galanoth, it's so nice to finally meet a man who understands me. And I think I really understand you, too.
    Kyrie: It's like I know exactly what you're thinking... And the answer's yes.

    «Sheila suddenly stands.»

    Galanoth & Sheila: WHAT??
    Kasn'hova: ... What?
    (simultaneously) Galanoth: No, no! I did NOT ask that question! Kyrie: I'd LOVE To go dragon slaying with you!
    (simultaneously) Galanoth: Oh, THAT's what you meant? For a moment I was afraid-- Kyrie: Let's start with that Vartai girl over there! She's been looking over here like she wants to be the next "Red Betty," like she really stands a chance at coming between us...


    Galanoth: Um... no.
    Kyrie: No?
    Galanoth: No. Jhan would probably ask us to leave after "that Vartai girl" scorched the room and finished beating on you. Besides, Sheila's... a friend of mine.

    «Kyrie stands up on the table.»

    Kyrie: You cheating jerk! We haven't even finished our first date yet and you already have somebody on the side?? I'll kill her!

    «Galanoth stands up.»

    Galanoth: Not before going through me.
    Kyrie: Oh, but 'darling,' how are you going to stop me...

    «Two Love Minions enter.»

    Kyrie: ... when my friends are keeping you busy?
    Galanoth: ... Sheila? Please try not to burn down the Inn before I finish these guys.
    Sheila: I'm not promising anything.
    Galanoth: Fair enough. I should be done in 5 minutes.
    Sheila: Without your sword?
    Galanoth: ...

    «He pulls out a bouquet of flowers.»

    Galanoth: 6 minutes, then.

    «Scene returns to Battleon.»

    «You»: Okay, so I'll just go down there, make sure that Kyrie hasn't... well, been Kyrie, and then--
    Sheila: (off-Scene) Poor Jhan, though. He looked like he was going to faint when he saw the mess.
    Galanoth: *chuckle* Still the best of that date, though.

    «Sheila and Galanoth enter.»

    Galanoth: Hi. Yulgar still in the inn? I think we could both use a tall Mogberry right about now.
    «You»: Um... yeah.
    Galanoth: Good.

    «They head toward the inn.»

    Kamui: See, it all worked out in the end! Not bad for an alpha test!
    «You»: All worked? You set me up with a rock!
    Capt Rhubarb: And me with a trobble!
    Warlic: And me with... well, me.
    Kamui: *shrug* Love is an inexact science. And now I have a LOT of data to work with. I'll have the L.O.V.E. Machine version QT3.14 up and running by next Snugglefest!
    Everyone: ......
    Kamui: What?

    «Scene fades.»

    Kamui: Hey, what are you doing?? Stop! Hey! OW! Remember the waiver! Section 12, page-- OOF! "You will not send Kamui or his associates to meet the Reaper"! OUCH! Come on, it's Snugglefest!
