Nanami: ...Guys... This is awkward.

*The silence continues to hang over the post-war student council room*

*Ignoring the obvious remark made by Nanami, Sora shuffles through a pile of papers in front of him.*

Sora: ... Hmm? What's this?

*Reads it out loud*

But but but.... We barely got to know this Seitokai.
I feel like we are in need of writers for Seitokai :P
This...!
*Looks around for reactions from the other Seitokai members*

Yuri: ...Well, that's just great. Not only did we fight a stupid war-

Gilgamesh: YOU SHALL NOT CALL ANY WAR BY GILGAMESH STUPI-

Yuri: -AND get punished by the Magistrate's Office, but now everybody's complaining? Great. Just great.

Nanami: I told you girls not to get involved in that man's shady plans...

Momo: Ruby Elections are starting soon, huh... I hope my new master is cute <3

Sora: You're taking this well, aren't ya?

Momo: Actually, I'm just as annoyed that people aren't happy with us. But what can we do?

Gilgamesh: I know. We can just start another wa-

Everybody else: NO!

Gilgamesh:
Image

*Heavy silence returns as nobody has any good ideas*

Kosaki: ...U-u-u-ummm... Why don't we all play a game?

Momo: A game?

Sora: Now THAT'S an idea! Hahaha, it's time to show you mortals what a god really looks like. Make way for your new king!

Gilgamesh: *tsk* (He already challenged Sora to a game of chess and lost horribly)

Yuri: Sounds interesting. What do you have in mind?

Kosaki: W-well, I asked Haru if she had any good game ideas and she gave me this:
Image

Nanami: Oh, I've heard of that game before. The Game of Life, right?

Sora: Alright alright, come on guys, let's start playing.

*They begin to set the game up. Sora shuffles the stack of career cards*

Sora: I believe...in the heart of the cards...now, come to me! Career card, DRAW!

*Flips over the top card of the deck*

Sora: Alright! Computer technician!

Gilgamesh: Is there a "King" career?

Yuri: I'll start in school first, I guess.

*Nanami, Momo, and Kosaki all follow Yuri's lead*

Gilgamesh: WHAT?! I got ENTERTAINER? What am I, a show-biz dog? This is ridiculous. Let me redraw!!

Sora: You are officially a Seitokai dog now, don't forget.

*30 minutes later*

Kosaki: Ichijou-kun...

Nanami: Kanda-kun...

Momo: Rito-san...

Yuri: ... Stop talking to those tiny pieces of blue plastic, you three.

Gilgamesh: Ahahaa! Finally, Saber, I have you in my grasp! You're MINE!!!

*In his imagination*

Image

*1 hour later*

Kosaki: Uwaaah, I messed the spinner up again...
Image

Sora: Alright! That's another 50,000!

Momo: You need to stop doing that or else Sora's going to win by a long stretch.

Nanami: You rolled a 1, Gilgamesh, so give me 10,000.

Gilgamesh: WHY DOES MY PALACE HAVE A GIGANTIC RIP IN THE MIDDLE???

*2 hours later*

Nanami: Mid life...crisis...
Image

Kosaki: It's okay, Nanami. Umm, if you'd like, I can waive your medical expenses...

Yuri: Hey, that's not part of the rules, you can't do that!

Momo: How many stocks have you bought already, Sora?

Sora: All but one! Cash money!

*3 hours later*

Sora: I... lost?
Image

Momo: Woooooow, what a performance by the gaming "god".

Yuri: Something bothers me about the way Gilgamesh went from rags to riches within the last fifteen minutes...

Gilgamesh: HAHAHAHA! You peasants! Bow before my riches! Kneel! Dogeza! Kowtow! And then maybe I'll have some mercy on you...WAHAHA!!!
Image

Nanami: Somebody's in a good mood now.

Sora: Yeah, that was really fun. Great game. I-I'm not at all bitter or frustrated that I lost, yeah.

*Pause*

Sora: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH SHIIIIROOOOOOOOOOOO~~

Yuri: Aww come on, we know you're faking it.

Kosaki: Thank goodness...that silence was so stifling before, but now we're all relaxed!

*The seitokai members suddenly realize that they're all smiling and having fun. They break into laughter.*

Momo: You know what? I think I know why we've been so tense lately.

Kosaki: Why?

Momo: Well, the Seitokai writers have all been trying to come up with crazy plots and lots of backstory and Hinagiku conspiracy stories and lots of crossovers and references, trying to tie in action with mystery with suspense and comedy, it's all just a huge mess now.

Seitokai writers: SO IT'S OUR FAULT!?

Nanami: I see your point...

Momo: So! It is high time that somebody came around and gave us a little...

Image

Momo: ...slice of Life.

I know Sora and Shiro are very competitive in games, but in a game of chance without anything meaningful at stake, and where you may actually endanger relationships by trying to win too hard, I can imagine them relaxing and leaving open chance they may lose.

This CD should have been invalid because there is one important rule broken:
Blank is not allowed to lose.
But well, since we want more CDs, I think I'll eat what is served.

because life isn't a game at all
it's justly unjust, balance-ly unbalanced, bla bla bla
life is shit, and not interesting, and doesn't deserve their attention.
such a shitty world deserve to burn in the fires of hell, and believe it, we'll either see it happens or see humanity reduced into robot (and AIs are uplifted into human.)
well, I don't really care because such a lame, evil, selfish,s shitty, motherfucker, son of a bitch humanity who abandoned poor people like Sora and Shiro doesn't deserve a happy ending; they all deserve to burn in hell.
The same way with the one who made all the shits in this shitty world.


Because life is a crappy game. It does not worth their efforts.

Being in the Seitokai with usurper like Gilgamesh waiting means Sora is already in a high-stakes game where this little game is nothing more than a diversion. Sora wouldn't want to endanger even bigger game by trying too hard and pissing off his potential allies. As Sora is able to tell anyone, sometimes you lose a game to win a bigger game. Also, without Shiro, this isn't [ ] playing, it is only Sora, and Sora is currently playing the Seitokai game, not the game of "Life".

I could talk a whole thread out about "losing now to win later" philosophy and its flaws and the reason why people like Sora and Shiro would never use such philosophy but...

well, let's end it here. Don't want to ruin the thread.

so, when will the next CD come out?

Some thoughts regarding Sora's loss and Gilgamesh's victory:

Gilgamesh probably passively cheated (by virtue of being a greedy bastard) - kind of like Saki-style mahjong
Sora went Comp. Technician and bought all stocks and went RNG ham, so it's somewhat apparent that he's not taking this too seriously
Maybe Kosaki just got better at spinning the wheel
He loses at the game of Life, how fitting is that?
Retconning is what we do best
In the Seitokai world, there is no power that cannot be overcome
Shiro totally isn't there, which is probably most important

That would never happen. They treat all games seriously.

True. It doesn't matter if they fight together or alone.
