And the giant sword doesn't draw a single eye.

Nah, sure who'd you think makes those kinda swords, eh? :P

Wisdom tooth removal is a pain in the ass mouth.
Especially if it gets as bad as you've apparently had it.
Hope you get well soon!

Man, Althea is QT AF TBQH.

Also, how do you fuck your teeth up that bad?

My first guess would be not taking care of them, which is very easy if you can't afford regular dental checkups. Brushing will only take you so far.

You know when I needed my wisdom teeth removed everyone talked up how awful it was, only for it to be 'mildly uncomfortable' at worst in my experience. Now given I'm a total coward and twitchy at the best of times I'm guessing I don't have some superhuman constitution that endured this trivially and thus have to wonder if I just won some cosmic coin-flip to be complication-free or had the only competent dental surgeon on the planet or something.

Sorry about your teeth, Mr. Carter. I know that pain. My wisdom teeth removal got slightly botched, and I got an enormous infection that...actually, never mind, you don't want to know details. Let's leave it that you have my sympathy.

Who said he did? It's more than possible his dentist bungled the removal.

Yeah, by the sounds of it one of his wisdom teeth was just really screwed up and wreaked bloody havoc via removal. Its shit like that that makes me quite glad mine came up straight...

Around now, aren't we due a spontaneous scene where the characters briefly act like they're in a medical drama? The medic saves some random bystander who isn't getting the right treatment...?

Wait. Wrong universe-in-which-characters-sneak-into-a-government-facility-by-pretending-to-be-dead. Carry on!

Ow. D:
Hope ya heal up soon, Grey! I can sympathize. Had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 17. They hadn't erupted yet, so they had to go through my gums.

Not a fun couple of weeks after, but no complications, so I guess I should be thankful.

owowowowowowowOWOWOWOWOWOW!

*brief pause*

FUCKIN' OW!

Hope ya feel better, man. Here's a lil bit of Athena your way! *casts Regen*

OT: Not too many people are going to ask many questions when it involves the (supposed) corpse of a woman who is scantily clad. Might ask about the gigantic sword, though. Uhhh, where did silent type gunman totally-not-Vincent run off to? Or am I completely blind?

Hey, what your eccentric boss wants to do with an insurgent's corpse is his business.

It's supposed to be the oral surgeon who pulls out wisdom teeth, like the guy who pulled out all 4 (Yep, I said 4!) of mine. Knocked me out and removed them, no problem, except for quite a lot of bleeding.

They're sneaking into a corporate facility, but close enough. Which game are you referring to?

Not a game - a TV series:

Dang, Althea's as cool as a cucumber here. Rock on, sweetie!

Well, we've got "Erin Dies" down pat... I assume we'll get more chances of this in the future to really nail down that title.

He's British. :D

He's British. :D

You know us Brits have the healthiest teeth in the world right?

Frequently yellow and crooked (and in my case, chipped), but healthy!

Oh, I know. But stereotypes are more fun to work with.

EDITed while I figure out what I was smoking last night. :P

Well he is wearing the guard's uniform, guess that's enough for everybody.

At this point, anyone wants a corpse these days... It puts the lotion on the skin, I guess...

Other than that, nobody likes questioning the one boss that can not only fire you, but could potentially kill you because it says so in the fine print of the contract that everyone had to sign, anyway...

-Dragmire-:

That's why he has that hair.

It draws attention away from anything else he's doing.

He could be juggling grenades and people would still be staring at the 'do.

How boned would the gang have been if he did call and ask about the corpse thing? A whole lot of would be heroes would have been halted if only the guards would do their damn job. Nameless henchmen are so useless.

Nah, they just rolled natural twenty on their bluff (or close enough. Those uniforms, especially doctor uniform worn by a healer, must give some bonuses to bluff. That corpse helps too.) If they failed their roll, they would have fought full room of high level guards, turning this into suicide mission. If they fail any of the bluff checks for the next few rooms over, expect fighting elite guards.
In fact, depending on game design, it is still possible that the mission they're on doesn't contain stealth ending and ends with "Extra hard Boss fight, while said Boss is using your friends as his minions" sort of thing. And "Erin and Co" didn't do the neccessary grinding for that and are thus hopelessly underleveled and under-equiped.
