"S’okay. You’re cool so I won’t kick your butt for sayin’ I’m small."
"Aw man! I wish I learned how to read by readin’ comics! Instead I had t’ learn the normal way. Comics are waaay cooler. What kinda comics do you read? Other n’ Superman.” She smirked.
"Yeah! Duh! I fight bad guys all th’ time with my sisters. Couldn’tcha tell? Most people know we’re weird ‘cause of the eye thing.”
"Thank you! I do not wish to fight. Friends we are, yes?"
"Let me think…Spider-Man, Iron Man, umm…The Hulk. Huuur…Big green monster. I like him." Vlad nodded again. "And Chippy the Chipmunk. That one was my favorite…Very funny…hurrr…"
"Hurrr…you are not weird. People think I am weird…because of the mask…and my green skin…hurr…"
"I ain’t tiny. I’m just… the opposite a’ big.”
"Hey, you read comic books too? Cool!" Buttercup smirked. “Ya mean like Superman? Nah. I’m better n’ him. No dumb rock could ever hurt me. I’m INVINCIBLE!”
"I do not mean offense. I am very big…all are tiny to me."
"Yes! I read many comics! That is how I learned to read! Hurrr…Butcher bought me many comicbooks when I was a little one.", Vlad nodded proudly. “Invincible! That is good! You are a superhero! That is exciting!”
"Thanks, big green Vlad guy."
Of course, her face quickly turned from a smirk to a scowl, crossing her arms.
"I already reveling in the gore of my enemies! I’ve gotten swallowed by monsters nineteen times and had t’ punch my way through ‘em! One time I even punched my way through one’s eye.”
"But…you are tiny, yes? Yet you fight monsters?"
"How is this possible? You must be strong! Tiny but strong. You are like the comic book people, yes? Strong and fly and hurt by the green, glowy rocks?"
"That’s okay, I’m rude too. She’s pretty cool for someone grumpier n’ I am."
She listened intently, grin only widening. “Cool— COOL! I wanna do that! I bet there’s lots a’ blood, huh? A guts an’, an’— BLOOD!”
"Cassandra is the cool, yes. You are the cool too, little one."
"Hurr…yes….it is very messy work. Go through much clothing and bleach, we do.", Vlad nodded solemnly. "No, no….you are young, yes? Should not be reveling in the gore of your enemies. Not until you are 18."
"Yeah. More n’ I do.” Buttercup said thoughtfully. She stared in awe at the knives with wide eyes, grinning.
"You chop up bad guys, huh? Cool." It apparently was time for her dark side to show. “How many bad guys’ve you chopped the snot out of? Hey! You ever cut off a guy’s head in one slice b’fore?"
"That is my Cassie then, yes. She is my best friend. Do not take her rudeness to heart, little one. Casandra has been through much."
"More than I may count. Many though…We lead busy life.", Vlad nodded, slipping the massive blades safely back into their holster. “Yes…and arms…and legs. Sometimes that is the only way to make sure they stay down.”
|((gOOD plus there's that pheromone control 'cause daken would feel like Vlad would be a very good ally to have. XD))|
// Vlad always has his gasmask on though >.> Would that still work?! I DON’T KNOW THE THINGS
"That’s awesome! No one taught me how t’ fight. I was made to kick butt.”
"Cassie? Like the weird dark girl with the sharp bat thingy? Hey! Do you got any weapons? Or do you just crush ‘em with your UNSTOPPABLE FORCE?”
"That sounds like Casandra…does she scowl much? If so, yes…that is my Cassie.", Vlad nodded, pulling out two, large butcher knives from the holsters under his coat.
"Big knives. Good for cutting meat.", Vlad nodded, matter of factly. "Many weapons we have, yes. These are my favorite."
|((Half of me wants Daken and Vlad to interact, the other half says no because Daken's a classified 'bad guy' ))|
// Vlad’s so trusting without Cassie, he probably wouldn’t even realize it right away xD
"Wait— bad guys? That means you’re a GOOD GUY? You’re green, strong, tough— an’ a GOOD GUY!? Man, this is the best day ever!”
"Yes! He was a father to me! Raised me, he did. Good man. Taught me much."
"I am a good guy, yes. Me and Cassie, we travel around, battling evil. We have splated many bad men."
