The next president? The only person who thinks he's a contender is the Shinra Manager himself - demonstrating his delusions of grandeur.

And that's the Shinra Manager all over. Always overestimating himself and his importance. Nope, he lives in the slums and rides the train to work, he's put up in an army barracks and not an inn when he gets sent to Junon. He's a middle manager through and through. A good paper pusher, he probably gets his reports filed on time, but he lacks leadership, creativity, flair... all important things to draw upon in a fight.

The Deputy Mayor Hart however? Ah, now there's a man of creativity and flair! He's clearly been causing trouble for Shinra all along -- hence the quote "I can't be a partner to anymore trouble for Shinra." -- and he's still sowing seeds of rebellion even when left to mind a dusty old library. Sure, he makes some money along the way, but his real purpose is in seeing just how serious this terrorist group is and whether they have either the smarts or the resources to actually get somewhere. Even after Shinra has tried to consign him to the history books, he's still right there causing trouble for them.

Mayor Domino himself clearly has a screw loose, and no doubt it was Hart who pulled strings and managed to get his older friend into the safe waters of minding the Shinra library. That's Hart all over, he looks after his friends, he's adaptable, he's even got a sense of humour.

Meanwhile Shinra Manager doesn't even appear to have any friends -- he's clearly not someone of influence of stature.

Nope, this is pretty much how the fight will go down:

(SPOILER)

"Plus he bears to loyalty to Shina, indeed he even carries a certain amount of resentment." He sounds a bit conflicted. Why would he feel resentment if he's loyal?
That was my typo. Should've been 'he bears no loyalty to Shinra'.

Deputy Mayor Hart, on the other hand, doesn't make typos

Don’t mess with Hart
’E’ll tear you apart
Pants kicking all day
Uzis are child’s play
Tearing up the ass of these whippersnappers
You don’t underestimate this upperstrapper

Making managers quiver
Aggravating the shivers
Young man ain’t got shit
Old man just don’t quit
RAAAAATAAATAATATAAAA

Hard ass muthafucka
’As toast with butta
Running out of rhymes.
TPlease vote for Team Chocobo, I love you, boy oh boy that sab and Joe and Clement Rage and general audience sure are swell people. (。・ω・。)

Sure you want to take our man on?
He's slum born and slum bred
Initiative is his middle name
Rose through the ranks of the company
A fighter in and out of his red suit.

Many a small battle has he fought and won
Ambition drives him, honour sustains him,
Never yielding in the face of danger
Able and willing to put his courage to the test.
Get ready to watch him triumph once again.
Extra, extra, read all about it:
Righteous victor in the struggle of good against evil.

*EY!!!*

This marks the end of round 1-10!

Spectators (and the audience!*) have 24 hours to cast their votes (either by posting in this thread or messaging me privately) for the champion that they have been swayed to stand behind. Your judges are...



Clement Rage
Joe
solo player sab

At this time, spectators and audience members are allowed to post their thoughts on the match. Players are NOT ALLOWED to counter any of these comments with new arguments or to continue ‘battling’ in general. Any attempt to do so will count as an automatic loss for your team. Players are free, however, to pay compliments to your opponents and such. ^^

Players!

If you’d like to opt out of participating in the next round, tell me during this 24 hour spectator period. Otherwise, I’m going to assume you’re still playing and you’re going to be reshuffled into a new team.

In General

If anyone (players, spectators, audience, anyone) has any feedback, questions, or concerns regarding the rules, please post that in the master thread here. It’ll be easier for me to keep track of/find your feedback this way for future reference. Thank you!

Any non-participant who’d like to be shuffled into a team, please say so now.

That's kind of you, but surely what I wrote is not rap?

Edited to add: altho rap is just modern Shakespeare

Pardon my tardiness, everyone! It’s been an exceptionally busy weekend

Coincidentally, Joe, you weren’t the only one to vote for the manager

So, right, congratulations to Moogle and all that, ahem


I forget which bit made me laugh the hardest. b b cummings commitment to her character always slays me.

o chocobo sage
who is the fairest of them all?
certainly not
mayor domino
if he hasn't even shaved
his beard
where else
has he not shaved?
if he hasn't
shaved
has he even showered?
how many cultures
of bacteria
are stranded
trapped
jailed
between unwashed
scraggly jungles
of wire(and not the
shiny, hopeful kind)beneath
his balls?

nitty gritty midgar
is a playground for
the nasty
and grotesque(diseases fester
upon unsuspecting
unshowered bald men)they go
"b o o
bet ya testicles didnt
see me comin
now its time
to die"

the chocobo sage
chuckles
no
mayor domino was not
the fairest of them all
but at least
he died liberated
from his nasty
diseased
balls
