And woo for the lulz-thread that takes Strop's attention away.

Uh yeah. Sorry about that. Drawing fifty bikini-strops put me back a day!

Here's the next segment, in which the plot GETS EVEN THICKER >:D

Here Comes A New Challenger!

I will kick you from the tournament if you do.

Seriously. I mean it.

And, because I did say that I would be doing a double-update...

Summons

Creek. Crunch. Thud. Clatter clatter.

The sounds repeated, and repeated again. Claws dug into dirt, tossed burnt garbage aside, moving piles and forming other piles elsewhere.

"This is getting nearly as old as I am," a crusty dragon grumbled. "Somebody as venerable as myself oughtn't be made to do such menial labour."

"You did set the whole park on fire, 'voidy," an equally diffident dwarf reminded him.

"Hey, if somebody needs holding responsible, it's that ninja filly, that she-devil. I am powerless at the command of they of the fairer sex!"

Dank kicked some exposed dirt aside with his boot, tossed a small seed inside, then pointed at it. Immediately a sapling sprung anew from the ground. "Well, Strip doesn't exist right now, so you get to pick up the rap."

"It's not fair," Devoidless muttered, sweeping aside another pile with his tail. "Everybody always blames the dragon. I mean sure I'm evil and everything but-"

"We've been through this already, now will you get back to work?" Dank planted another seed. "The sooner we get this done the sooner I can stop looking like a godd*** hippy."

"Yeah yeah," Devoidless turned back to the pile of rubbish then blew a liberal dose of fire on it, converting it into ash. Suddenly he stopped. Something was tugging at his heartstrings, literally wrenching his insides around. Then the pain started. Impossible! Dragons like him were impervious to pain, but this, this was a strange... yearning he couldn't explain.

"Oi, 'voidy, stop slacking off!"

"I'm not," 'voidy mumbled before he realised his voice was cracking, and a solitary tear rolled down his craggy cheek. Dank peered at him.

"...are you crying 'voidy?"

"No. Shaddup!" Voidy wiped it away and cleared his throat. "I've just got... got something in my eye, that's all." But the pangs didn't cease, in fact they were growing by the minute. "Excuse me."

Before Dank could react, Devoidless the Ancient had spread his great wings and taken off, body and tail coiling behind him as he flapped into the sky, shrinking until he disappeared over the mountaintops at the horizon.

GUESS WHAT!?!?!? AFTER THE NEXT SCENE I'LL BE HANDING YOU YOUR ROUND INSTRUCTIONS. OMG YAY!

My lips are sealed. It's perfect because now I can claim to know without having to prove anything. Would I know? I think I do.

You really care about that. I'm all for 'knowledge is power', but not in this context, seeing as the identity will be revealed shortly.

I think I might know who are they. But I shall not say anything, I respect Strop's code of silence.

Fair enough. I propose the use of italics when someone is being sarcastic/silly. It's so hard to get it across on a text based site without being mistaken.
