Posted by: Xrtsys Jul 24 2002, 01:18 AM
Says, "I'd be happy,
To show you my cool thing."
Largo - you da man!

<!haiku> Hmmm. Never thought I'd get roped into doing one of these posts. My inner fanboy must be emerging. *slays inner fanboy.* There, much better. </!haiku>

"thanks for the offer,
just get on with the story."
j0, erika rulz!

While Erika sits at her table,
Entertained by a l33t zombie fable,
She reflects that her yen
Have been very well spent,
Because Largo is better than cable!

Ah Piro, take heart! While you sputter,
Your sincerity floods past your stutter;
There will come a time
(Pretty soon, I opine)
When the girl will regret what she uttered.

The hawk flies above
the tumultuous sea; it's
hard work for Erika!

Harbinger of doom;
it shakes the air with it's tremors;
Ph34r Largo's cool thing!

His thing is shiny!
It has lots of moving parts!
And it does cool things!

The booze flows freely
And many strange things are said
Behold the cool thing!

Kimiko's first thrust
Time for Piro to parry
In this duel of fates

Rejoice, for Largo's
Cool thing has returned from the
Comic's early days

Miho, dear Miho,
What secrets do you hide? Please
Tell us sweet zombie

Two hearts break over
a misunderstanding. Will
Kimiko forgive?

B33r Garden, oh B33r
Garden, how you make Largo
joyful and happy!

We Megatokyo
forumers all have too much
free time on our hands...

The Philistines say:
"Poets? Too much time on hands";
then watch football game.

They make me wonder:
What do they learn? Do I care?
I find I do not.

Piro stumbles, trips
And turns pink around the edges
Kimiko looks down

Largo sees nothing
Little bird tumbles towards the ground
Several feet away

Verbal thrusts echo in
the beer garden confines and
everyone suffers;

piro's overmatched
he lacks the killer instinct
reflect, kimiko:

Young Piro is too nice a guy,
To riposte with the obvious jibe:
"Just how many men
"Did you bring dinner, then,
"Before one of them let you inside?"

One can wonder about Erika's motivation
To not get violent to Largo's apparation
As he stops in his drama
To invite the bab3-o-r4m4
She simply says "no" to his invitation

Posted by: JRandomLurker Jul 26 2002, 09:26 PM
Largo's solution:
deploy the secret weapon!
Piro's parallel?

Their stories have been
both alike and not. What is
Piro's secret trick?

In reply to:

To riposte with the obvious jibe:
"Just how many men

"Before one of them let you inside?"

Can Piro be cruel?
Outside of games his spirit
is questioned by all.

Ouch! Hadn't thought of that... well, he could snap back with that, but would that help matters any?

Even harsher still
"How many till you let them in?"
And then? Ker-SLAPPY!

............... just forget that last..........

Mind in turmoil as
he thinks; how do I say THAT
in Japanese?

grrrrr....... can't think of a way to make that last line 5 syllables.... no nature references in any of them... pretty poor effort all round. It's practice, though.

Last ditch surprises
Largo revealing his toy
Piro, show your heart

[!haiku] Getting story-haiku dt's! [/!haiku]

quiet as moonlight
on a remote, sheltered pool
erika observes

With deceptively quiet expression,
Hayasaka transfers her attention,
From Largo's mad bluster,
To Piro's sad fluster,
Full-circle to Kimiko's tension.
