Captured! What Bad Luck! I got Reborn into another Life and now I am a Side Character 5

After Halloween Month and a small vacation we can finally pick up my D&D Isekai Story again! In this story I fall off some stairs and get Isekaid.. wanting to be more of me! While reborn in the character of Elle.. all my traits get amplified. I became kinder, smarter.. but also A LOT more Unlucky! To make matters worse! I am not even the Main character!

Episode 4 -Recap

In the last Episode Elle finally got her first real quest for the Owls Nest! To disrupt a gambler in the city of Twiddir. Unbeknownst to Elle she is merely used as a distraction for a heist. Elle gets injured and actually kills a guy and her companions Mirina the drunken fist monk and Ynaja the dark skinned cleric that is very into romances take her back and leave her in her own bed.. yet the guild leader of the Owls Nest seems to think very lowly of Elle. Read up on part 4 by clicking here.. or check out the post carousel featuring the series at the bottom of the post.

Day ?? Time Unknown!

Dear scraps of clothes from the dead person in my cell remind me to add you to the diary later if I ever make it out! I have been kidnapped. I have deduced we are one a ship.. one that is still docked. I have reached this conclusion by the sound of seagulls flying over on a fairly regular basis. My nausea and vomit also is equal to that I would have on moderately still water.  I have been here for .. I think I have been here for I think two days now.. based on the guard routine.  These men are cloaked but I hear them speak Infernal.. which leads me to believe they may be Tieflings.  There is a guy.. who takes me out of the cell and he sticks needles in me.. but he is wearing on of those plague doctor masks… when he does I am strapped to a table so I can not deduce his height properly. 

Being stabbed with those needles really hurts!  Yet I find myself without much fear?! Why?! Because I am a side character.. I fall into these tropes…ever since I have been Isekaid.. that means rescue will come as soon as I am on death’s door.  For this reason I have not eaten.. I want my health to deteriorate as fast as possible.. as I feel it will expedite my release. However I feel my mental capacities waning….so I will write what I will know now that I still can. Sorry about the smell.. dear diary if this page is inserted in between. All I had was vomit and dirt to make some ink.. well and some blood.. but that felt needlessly edgy! 

It all started when Maine got back into town.. a new quest showed up. Tiefling girls with more or less my description have gone missing. All a bit prettier than me..and non had glasses.. but still!  I of course offered to take the quest along with Maine.. with me being bait. She refused saying that  she would take this quest alone.  I should not be put at risk.  Which left me without a quest again! I tried to tag along with Oscott the knight who had to fight a bunch of artificers up in the town of Reh’dyt. He seemed to be okay and then he told me he left his “thingamabob” at home and he needed to get it first. He told me to wait at the port and he would come get me. I think he must have forgotten to pick me up because I waited for over 18 hours for his return. Maybe this item required some grooming! I would have waited longer.. but I heard a voice from an alley asking me for help. It was a man with a plague doctor mask who told me if I could help him. He was doing an experiment.. he told me to pick a card.. he had made 13 of them.. the higher the number i would draw the better.  I drew one… then I felt a hit in my neck.. and I woke up on board of this ship.

A day after the previous entry..somewhere early I think!

Sorry dear cloth.. I had to stop writing yesterday.. The sickness got me.. the smell of decomposition of the body next to me is getting worse. It’s a girl that looks a bit like me… Well the facial structure of her half decaying face shows we have a lot of similar features.. like eye distance, cheekbone height and horn structureI was also taken in for another test. This time he had a mage next to me as I was strapped to a chair! I am pretty sure the Plague Doctor is a tiefling as well.. his height matches and while he does wear shoes.. it is a type that would support fooves!  Which are foot hooves if you haven’t been reading along. Regardless.. he had a mage with him.. donned in black.. half orc but of a darker skin tone.  The doctor who was referred to as Lord Febricitantem would flip a coin.. if I get it right I would get the coin.. if I got it wrong I would be Shocking Grasped. We played this game for 20 rounds.. I am back without any coins.  There was a lot of pain.  At one point the doctor told me I could guess both..so I did.. and then the coin fell through a crack and landed sideways! What bad luck!

He seemed to be very pleased though! I told him if someone could please feed my cat. He told me I would soon be able to myself.. well a part of me would. Soon Lady Doom would inhabit the body of her daughter and she could finally walk the earth again. I told him that I do not believe my mother was called lady doom! Such a person would clearly be shunned by society and Elle ..before I inhabited her or maybe I merged with her.. seemed to have a normal life. Of course I did not tell him about the last part. He told me Lady Doom was my mother. He told me I could destroy the world. I .. told him I destroyed a lot of things by accident but I would never do so willingly and if he was wise he would let me go ..because attempting to put someone else in my body surely would count as a death flag for him! I am just a side character after all and those always get rescued..I would be powerless to stop that. He did not believe me! He himself used a shocking grasp on me. It hurt but I remained awake… this is odd.

You see , given how much experience I have earned during my quests so far I would say I could not be a mage of higher than the third level. Which means my maximum health points according to Dungeon and Dragons logic should put me at 18. Now given that I am so prone to self hurt I am willing to believe my constitution is slightly higher than that of an average mage so I assume it would be around a +2.  That would put me at 24 health points.  I have received 21 shocks and a Shocking grasp deals 1d8 HP. Meaning they would have rolled a 1 on every bit of damage..because I do not feel that close to fainting.. close enough.. and I am in a lot of pain.. but I feel I could take at least one or two more of these..does that make them unlucky for rolling bad or me.. for not getting the blessing of being knocked out?! Lord Febricitantem seemed very interested in this when I told him! He said the ritual to resurrect Lady Doom would take place tonight?! Oh I hear the guards coming for me!

Day 52 Night

Dear Diary.. I have been reunited with you…. I do not know what happened as I lay on a ritual stone table.. a broken horseshoe.. a five leaf clover.. some broken glass and the fur of a black cat were placed around me.. when suddenly we heard screaming from the upper deck! The Lord began to chant and my vision began to blur.. as if I was looking at two places at once.. I saw something.. I saw Maine.. but not in this world.. but in mine. She worked in a call center and was in a Wheelchair… she was very depressed and cried looking at herself in the mirror. Then I saw a woman.. she wore a dress.. well one of those weird ones which show your legs, and only hide your backside.. She also had a grey skin.. similar to a drow like Carlita but with a lot more humanoid features. Her hair is as white as snow! Her clothes had all sorts of holes in them.. like moth bites .. but in a fairly regular pattern.. dare I say the outfit looked kinda skimpy! She called me daughter… and I said no! We are genetically too diverse to be the same.. I could barely hear her answer as right above me someone was impaled on a big sword and blood began leaking below the deck all over my face… The doctor lord got distracted by this and the sigil I was laying on as well… so he polymorphed himself into a big bug .. I think.. my glasses were knocked off and what part was still left on my face were covered in blood. He fled the scene and Maine showed up.. just as I expected.. However she also had another companion along with her.

Maho the Drow Sailour that looked like Carlita was with her. “See there is the pretty little thing.. told ya I spotted them draggin her onto Beshabas’Pearl… no sign of the creeper that was with her  though. Maine freed me from my bindings and Maho greeted me first. “Nice to see you again lass, thought I had lost my chance with ya there for a bit.. luckily tha town members remembered a girl smelling like fish walking to yer guild.. or I would not have been able to get ya the help of blondie here! Great swing to her sword.. but not much in terms of an investigator is she?’   I asked her what kind of chance she missed..  and she just smirked telling me I owed her a reward for finding me. She would tell me soon enough. She told me to take a bath before though.  She helped me off the table  but in her attempt to lift me she must have accidentally pinched me in the posterior. Maine asked me about details of the man who held me.. I told her everything I knew.. but she asked I knew where “the antlers” were. I don’t know anything about it and she snapped a bit at me.. making me cry.  I did not want to disappoint her.. I just did not see any antlers. I told her about my vision.. but as soon as I mentioned her in the wheelchair she told Maho.. to take me away.. she would look for Lord Febricitantem. I told her he changed into a bug thing and he flew out a porthole.
She softened up a bit after that.. telling me to not worry she would wrap this up. 

Maho took me home and even helped me get a fat fish for Summer. I wasn’t sure how long I had been missing. Maho confirmed it was about three days. Summer apparently found a way to go out a window I broke earlier and kept herself nice and fed. She was happy so see me return though.  Maho asked me if I wanted three pussies in my bed tonight and I told her that I barely could manage to look after one cat.. Maho said that was not what she meant and winked at me. I told her I was confused and she just chuckled calling me adorable. Giving me a careful hug. She asked me on a date.. as a reward for helping me save me. I agreed, but I might need to do another quest to be able to afford the date.. she told me she would pay..she would use the money she looted from the Tieflings of the Beshaba’s Pearl.. so  we agreed on seeing each other in three days. She asked me if I put out on first dates. I told her that I put out fires on a fairly regular basis.. as I knock over candles all the time. She wanted to say something but then did not and gave me another hug.. I guess my back myst have been slippery from all the blood ..because her hand slipped to my butt.

So that was a few missing days.. I really want to talk to Maine about her being Isekaid as well. It fits her behaviour pattern.. but if people try to put a demon in my body it might be wise if we look for a way home again.  I am not sure if it is possible but I should try. Rho stopped by telling they were throwing a party for Maine to celebrate her rescuing me.. asking me if I was fit enough to party.. I told him I was.. and I would come soon.. then I slipped in my bath and hit my head and I guess I must have dealt myself three damage because I woke up a lot later with Summer licking my head!  Oh well.. I did not really feel like a party anyway!  I feel a bit sad.. but when I think about three days from now.. about having a nice evening with Miss Maho.. I can not help but to stop wagging my tail… that’s kind of weird huh?! Oh yes reminder to myself to really look into this Lady Doom thing a bit as well!  That’s it I am going to sleep! Good night diary! Good night whoever reads it.. .I really hope it’s me.. or anyone I pass it down too!

What Bad Luck! I got Reborn into another Life and Now I am a Side Character (Part 3)

Hello dear Island Guests, it’s time for the third installment of my Isekai “What Bad Luck! I got Reborn into another Life and Now I am A Side Character. In this story I died by falling of a stairs in a moment of bad luck! When I could be reborn into another being with one wish I just asked to be a more amplified version of me! You know the whole super stats thing! Little did I know it would boost my social awkwardness and my bad luck as well! With that boosted bad luck, I became a side character! NANI!!! To see how my journey started you can read part 1 here and part 2 here! How will our quest go on?

Hello again dear diary!  I am sorry I haven’t written to you in so long! I spilled my inkwell on evening of the third day just as I was to chronicle that.. and well  I am sorry for tearing a pages out of you but things have gotten a bit messy! All in all it didn’t matter much anyway because that third day not a lot happened! I almost felled compelled not to leave my house and do anything! I kinda felt blue for failing my first quest as well. Like I could not be bothered doing anything so I just lay in my bed and thought about this new life. I wonder if Elle ..the lady I was reborn lived happily.. and where did she go?! Maybe I am just Elle and I am had a very weird dream ..and I am accidentally going insane..maybe it’s some sort of disease that rots my brain away! Then again I can still count exactly how many nails there are in my bedroom floor, and extrapolate that given my house dimensions to within a margin of about 12 nails are able to tell exactly how many nails hold my floors together. So maybe my brain is still fine!.. But day three came and went without any events. Day four was like that as well. I visited the Owl’s Nest briefly but they had no new quests. Since things were slow I thought I might ask Maine out for a date.. to thank her for the coins she gave me and .. you know she still is kinda good looking.. but she was still out on her forest trip.  Ynaja asked me where I was from and was like the way I was.. I did not understand at first but she thought I was weird.. it made me a bit sad and I went home, not doing much! I think I even forgot to eat!

Today however was quite differently! I went back to the guild and I saw Oscott, Mirina and Daria had returned so I guess Maine was back as well. I wagged my tail so hard I knocked over a glass of another woman in the guild, her name was Carlita a Celestial Bloodrager. She was Drow, from the Down-Underdark. If I ever find my way back to the real world and I can take  this diary let me explain! A Blood-Rager is an inbetween of a  Barbarian and Sorcerer Archetype.. who draw their magic power from something in their blood and Carlita is part angelic .. so she is prone to barbaric fighting but when she rages she changes shape of sorts getting a much cuter uniform and angelic wings! …A Drow is something close to a Dark Elf.. you know like those ones from Skyrim with the bluish skin In normal D&D they are from a place called the Underdark.. but in this world they call it the Down-Underdark ..and it’s like an Island far far away! So yeah I spilled her drink I saw her  transform because she was angry and then.. she looked super glowly and her outfit went white I even saw wings I think.. but then … I got knocked out again..later she told me she did not mean to , it was just a reflex and we talked a bit. When the dizziness in my head finally was over I walked up to the quest board and saw one new quest. There were more before but well in my time unconscious most were picked up already.

Bloodrager Carlita

The quest was a two person stake out in a romantic park, I would have to pose as the others lover ..so feed  each other sandwiches and like pretend to be a couple in love. Apparently someone was selling bogus love potions..or lust potions .. I am not exactly sure as I have found myself increasingly unable to read subtext. Regardless..a guy sold potions to couples to help deepen their bond but it actual makes people break up and hate each other and it had caused conflict in the town  that held the park.. which wasn’t to far away from our town either. I like love so the idea to defend it was super appealing to me!  Maine promised me to take me on the next quest so this is where I could make my move! However I did decide to ask around for other options though! Maybe she’d want some rest after her quest. Oscott looked quite pensive and said he needed to shine the inside of his armor so he could not. He must be a clean freak or something if he wants to do that because no one can see that!
Mirina told me to leave her alone and she wanted to get drunk. She would not go to a picknick because getting drunk publicly was fineable. Daria told me she had to do a thing.. at “whatsitcalled” and Carlia dropped her pen under the table, she could not hear me, she kept searching.. I did not remember her writing.. so maybe I am going insane!

Maine Finally showed up and I asked her to do the quest with me , she came up and smiled  reading the quest. “I think I might take this quest with Mister Mans if you do not mind Elle’ she said while taking the paper away from me. ‘I don’t think we would make a very believable couple now would we?’ she winked at me..I think..she might have stabbed her sword in my chest because that is how it felt! ‘Why?’ I was able to ask her that and she looked at me and frowned. ‘Well I like boys, for one and with your disabilities I don’t think you should go out there,you’ll be made in no time and get into danger, I rather see you safe’
‘M-my disability I asked?’  Maine looked at me and patted my head ‘You know , you are a bit low on charisma my dear, you have a charm for sure but socially you are a bit of a wreck’ I froze up … straight in the Kokoro! I bet this is how those anime characters feel like when the look grey and with the big white eyes and such! When she was gone.. so was my quest..
I sniffeled a bit when Carlita came to me and  gave me a quick hug. ‘I am sorry.. I bet she didn’t mean to hurt you…I just think she really wanted to take this quest with Rho though but hey you know what I have a quest for you, I recently lost my pet, I’ll give you 5 gold if you find it for me? ‘ 

Carlita told me she lost her cat called Autumn and upon me inquiring more details about the cat she at first seemed to be inclined to tell me something but than she changed her mind. ‘Maybe it is part of the quest you can ask around, meet some people in town, I live in near the ports. The house across the ship Jupiter’s Grace.. the one with the green roof. Perhaps you could ask one of the sailors if they have seen my cat?! It will help you proof Maine is wrong about your social skills as well sweety’ .  She winked at me shooed me off. ‘Come on you go girl! Your quest awaits’ . Since I needed the money and could use some experience points I dashed off. I did notice Carlita use a different voice inflection than before, indicating that  there is an increased chance of her knowing more about the whereabouts of her own cat. It is my hypothesis that she knows exactly where to find it and it’s not even missing but she wished to relieve my psycho-emotional malady. In fact given the downwards faced gazed and the avoidant approach factor Ynaja had heading towards the table I suspect she would soon inquire on Carlita why his quest was given to me!  Speculation could be made that this quest was given to me to secure my financial security.. but the way her eyes lit up it seems there have been well willing ulterior motives in play.  

Making why way to the docks I was almost overwhelmed with the salinity of the ocean air.. but also the scent of not so fresh fish! Probably heavily brined. I guess not having access to motorised ships and cooling decks has made the intake of fresh fish more difficult. After acclimating a bit I approached the ships. Apparently the ships are mostly named after gods followed by a blessing of some kind. Most ships were fishing boats like Silvanus Solace or Mystra’s Boon. One ship was a bit mysterious a trade vessel helmed by mostly Tiefling Sailors that seemed to avoid me, unlike me they  mostly had red skins, though there were a few variations and blue ones on top of the deck. They were the crew of a ship called Beshaba’s Pearl. It had a figurehead of a tiefling female but instead of demon like horns she had black deerlike antlers. I could not stop staring at it for a while.. until a seagull dropping hit my outfit.  I went onto the dock to wash it off..when all the Tiefling Sailors suddenly moved out of my way and withdrew the plank to their ship! I guess they really are superstitious about women being on boats. Unfortunately I fell in the water while  rinsing of my outfit because one of the wooden boards had come a bit loose… the ship would not even toss me a rope! Luckily I managed to climb back on shore again! Men can be so rude!

Finally I found the Jupiter’s Grace but it seemed all but abandoned. I noticed Carlita’s house which was quite a bit larger than mine. A single Drow woman looking very much like Carlita was sitting on the edge of the ship playing with a rose. Other than her the ship was completely abandoned. She wore a sailor uniform so I guess Drow have less issues with female crew members..perhaps they just do not genetically diversify that much so there is a big chance of being a female.. I should inquire more from Carlita at a later time. For now I had to proof I was sociable! So Maine would be proven wrong! So I spoke up as loudly as I could. “Salutations Lascar I was sent by thy kinsman to perform an inquiry upon a unaccounted for Genus Felis. hast thou by whims of faith perhaps perceived anything of such notion” The woman looked at me and pulled up an eyebrow. ‘Salty my what now?’ I do not know what came over me there I tried so hard to sound cool and convince her to work ..but now she thinks I was like a weirdo. I tried again.  ‘Excuse me Jupiter Sailor madame I am looking for my friend.. I mean my guildmate’s cate. She lives in that house with the green shingles over there’.  The lady stared back at me.  ‘Ai I have seen a cat, in fact the thing has been a pest and took off with some of the fish we were unloading.  You might want to check out the fish pile near the Mystra’s Boon, they are getting a cart.. I bet your fur ball will show up! ‘  She stared at me from the deck ‘Say you look soaked gal pal.. does li’l old Mako here make you THAT wet?’ She then licked her lips. ‘I fell in the ocean because a bird pooped on me.. I don’t know who Mako is.. is it a person with like a squirt gun or a like someone who throws a bucket of water?” The Drow looked confused “No I am.. you know what never mind’. So I went off.

Maho the Drow “Sailor”

I made my way towards the fish pile that was stacked near the fisherman boat the woman whose name I forgot to ask and tried to hide behind a crate.. unfortunately a bird had tried to pick up a fish and dropped it right in front of my fooves, my feet hooves and I slipped on it and fell into the pile of fish. While trying to crawl out getting fish slapped in the face everywhere I noticed the sound of meowing coming closer. I decided to hide for a bit longer in the fish pile and then flop out when the cat is eating it should not move then! The plan was quite successful, although the oil in the fish had made me a bit more oily than I would have liked.. so I slid a bit to far and bonked my head on a chest. Luckily my horns kept me safe.
The little cat did not get scared off by me! It was a tiny black cat.. not much past a kitten.  I called out “Autumn..come here.. Elle is going to take you to your Mamma!’ I do not know why calling myself by my new name comes so natural to me!  Yet the kitten actually abandoned the fish and like bonked it’s head against me a few times! Maybe it liked how fishy I smelled! I had no trouble picking it up!..Walking off the docks was a different story! I was so slippery.. but I had to keep Autumn safe.. so I brazed myself and walked back to the guild like I had pooped in my pants.. almost doing a crab walk as well.. so I would be sure I would not fall. At one point an orange Tabby cat began to follow me as well! It wasn’t as nice as Autmn though! It scratched at my legs a bit and trying to take a bit. So now I had to crabwalk with another cat nibbling at my feet! I bet if I could rinse of the fish oil at the guild it would return home! This cat actually had a collar! I should get Autumn a collar as well!  That way Carlita would be extra happy! Crabwalk to the store!

By the time I got there though the store was closed! I did not dare to move fast..enough so I guess I should give her that as a treat the next day. The orange Tabby had stopped scratching my leg as well.. which is good because I am pretty sure I could see some bone sticking out! I should have Ynaja heal that. ‘Oh look it’s the Tiefling and her cat parade’  a familiar voice suddenly said. It was the Drow woman that was the Jupiter Sailor. ‘If you like cats that much , I have a pussy for you’ she said. ‘While I would like to become a pet owner myself I am unsure if I currently possess the economical means to sustain a  cat for an extended period of time. ‘No worry babe’ the woman said ‘This pussy will leave in the morning’ I frowned.  ‘I do not think a pet should be only kept for a day, relocating stress will still be in effect so while I would not mind a cat staying over for a night I think it would not be in their best interest accept a deal like this so I am afraid I must decline. The woman laughed and patted me on the head. ‘Aren’t you precious lil old Mako likes you..she’ll probably give up for today but don’t you worry babe she will be back’ I gasped! ‘The water throwing person? ‘ The sailor laughed again and walked off. Such a strange person! I find myself completely incapable to comprehend what she wants.. perhaps it’s her way of speaking it seems more crude than I am used to.. I find myself unable to make conclusions based on these sentences.

Little Leg Hurting Monster

When I finally got back to the guild Carlita was already outside waiting for me. ‘She saw me coming in slowly for a while as crab walking was not very fast. “Autumn’ she yelled coming towards me. With some pain in my heart I held up the little black kitten! It was so nice to me! It fell asleep in my grasp even, making a purring noise! Then Carlita moved right past me and picked up the orange cat.  ‘Thank  you for finding Autumn she said kissing the orange one.  ‘Wait if that is Autumn who is this guy or girl?’. Carlita came closer inspected it and said it was a girl while handing me five gold pieces putting them in my pocket with a wink. ‘You earned them girlfriend’ she said.  ‘Okay but whose cat is this? It doesn’t have a collar’. The bloodrager looked at it and pointed out some out how it was somewhat poorly groomed.
‘She might be a stray, why don’t you take her home with you.. if you found her at the docks she might be hungry and  trying to keep herself alive.. it will not be long for a bad sailor would harm her. ‘How did you know she was eating fish’ I asked Carlita. ‘Well she’s a cat.. and you smell like a barrel of fish I just put 1 and 1 together’ she once more winked at me. ‘How did you know it was female then?’ I asked. Carlita winked again and said she might just have a talent or perhaps she met it once or twice..who knows? I am beginning to think Drow have really twitchy eyelids! I looked at the black girl cat kitten. ‘So do you want to come with me?’ I asked it.. It meows really loudly and pressed it’s head against my hand. ‘That seems like a yes, so how are we going to name you then? ‘ I stared at it for a while before I decided. I found it before I found Autumn apparently so I settled on the name Summer. Carlita congratulated me with my first completed quest and told me she would give me a hug..but I should go home to take a bath. That seemed like a good idea. 

So that’s about it my dear diary! I think I will call you Diana by the way! I took Summer home with me and she seemed to like it there! Like just before I got home she like jumped out of my hands and ran towards the home herself..she got in my way a bit as she swirved to the side…so I had to stop and I kinda jump aside into some horse manure..but well I was going to take a bath anyway it did not really matter!  I had a little friend now.. I am less lonely! Oh I forgot to mention that Ynaja healed my flesh that Autumn had scratched away! Otherwise the horse Manure could have easily caused horrible infections that might lead to amputations or weird diseases but no,  so don’t worry about me Diana I am going to be fine!  
Remind me to get a patch of fabric though once I go out to buy Summer a collar tomorrow!
I do need to teach her some manners, she got in my way again and since I not wanted to trip on her I just threw myself to the side and my growing back horns poke a hole in my couch!
I need the patch for that!

I had a nice bath though! I put Summer on my bed and told her to wait for me and she looked at me and meowed in agreement.  Then I filled a tub with some hot water and added some rose petals and scented oils. I first threw a few buckets of water on myself like in the alley behind my house to rinse of the fish.. I hoped Summer would like me after but I felt she would. When I was in the bath I wondered.. Maine shot me down.. hardly.. do I have a chance .. I think she like Rho!   He’s a thief.. so is it true women really like bad boys?! I don’t understand.. maybe I should find a bad person who likes me? Like a ..anti-paladin or a pirate or a corporate executive?! I wonder if someone like that would ever be into me?! At least Carlita was kinda nice to me.. It’s kind of weird though how no important quests show up when Maine is not around and when there is only one left she always gets the last one even if I try… She will still be away tomorrow as the next town is a day’s travel by foot. So I will see if this trend continues! Anyway I should go sleep now.. Summer fell asleep on the middle of the bed and i did not want to distrub her so I guess I will sleep on the floor next to her. I don’t want her to be afraid that I am gone should she wake up! I wonder if Ynaja can heal backpains?!

What Bad Luck! I got reborn into another life, and Now I am a Side Character! (Part 1)

Hello guys gals and everyone else that visits my island! Today I decided to start writing a Isekai like story! What would happen if I got Isekaid?! Well here is my story! Including a super long title!

Intro

I never thought it would happen to me, but then I died! Everything went black when I saw that cute little cat, it’s skin was so black and it made the cutest meow! I remember .. falling. From a stairway perhaps? Man I am never lucky! Yet then I heard it’s voice.. Kami of the new world.. the voice said I would be reborn… there was no real shape but I imagined him like a moose..or maybe a powerful stag… something forestry and wild.. and pride was in his voice.

He told me I would be reborn in a new world. I told him , I like me I wanna be myself. He told me a girl named Elle accidently magicked her soul away and I would get her body, but I could take a boon into my next life. So since I wanted to be myself.. I asked to be myself.. but amplified! Isekai characters usually get a huge stat upgrade.. so I just asked for that. Just upgrades so I would be be.. I have a pretty good brain on me.. so if this Elle is magic.. I bet it will turn out fine! I just forgot.. how unlucky I can be!

Day 1
Morning

Dear diary.. I woke up in a strange bed today! Lot’s of clutter on the floor, drawings and some runic things , which I think are spells. I woke up with a strange headache.. but I guess having your soul mushed into a new body that sort of thing is expected. Anyway I decided to get up filled with energy, I am going to be an overpowered and beloved heroine and make lots of money from quests and live in a mansion! At least that was what I thought at the time.

I got up out of bed and tried to search for a bathroom… now let me tell you Isekai shows do never really explain this well.. but baths are hard to find in medieval times. A bar of soup is even harder to find! The girl I am now does seem to have a lot of rose water though.. I guess it is used to mask the scents.. when I tried sniffing to see how bad the damage is I noticed something though my skin was blue?! Nani!

So upon further investigation I also discovered there was also a pillow stuck to my head. While stepping away all flustered I accidently stepped on my tail.. which I did not know I have and I fell into a mirror and broke it.. I wasn’t very hurt though.. because I hit it with a horn.. which did break off.. the pillow stuck to my head was skewered on the other..I somehow know the other will go back.  Which is good because soon after I after I fell of the stairs, trying to find another mirror.. apparently I have hoof-like feet. It’s not exactly a hoof.. but it’s not like the human flat foot either. So with two broken horns.. and these features.. I think I might be something close to a Tiefling.. or maybe like a Draenei from World of Warcraft… they are about the same thing anyway. Well at least my skin colour combines nicely with pink!

Day 1
After Noon

I was surprised.. and slightly injured,  as I managed to get dressed from my sleeping gown. Which wasn’t easy! I can hardly see anything! I had pretty bad eyesight when I was human..but this was ridiculous…that’s when I realised that bastard Moose guy must have amplified that trait of me!  I hoped opticians were thing in the city! I also found a coin purse apparently Elle had some money! So I decided to go out and see if I can get my eye problem fixed.

Now while Elle doesn’t smell that bad, I guess it’s a Tiefling thing, the same can not be said for the human males at least I assume that’s what they were.. obviously with my eyesight this impaired it is impossible to verify. As I was stumbling around someone asked me if  everything was alright. The blob looked blond and sounded female. Could this be my fated encounter.. where I meet my side character?! I explained her that I had bad eyesight and lost my aid. She offered to take me to a man who made glasses. I guess that is a relief.Now those glasses cost me nearly all my coins..I am not sure if I have enough for food now.. but at least I will be overpowered so finding a job should not be too troubling.


My estimations proved to be correct. The blond blob person was a human lady. She wears this regal blue coat and a fancy scabbard. She waited for me , in case these glasses would not help, also she was curious about my species as she never saw a Tiefling before. She said she was new to this place, having only been in town for a couple of days.

Her home town is far away and apparently does not have the diversity. I guess it means Elle is not from this town originally either.. or she would have seen more right? I had not seen any blue blobs on the way here. So I told her. I just rented the place.. I lived in and arrived yesterday.. but in the move my glasses had gone missing. She said she could show me around town… she definitely is my fated encounter. I bet we are going to be a popular ship! Though I never experienced that pausing moment with the hearts and the glow. Maybe that is anime only?

She told me her name was Maine. She seems to be a high level hero because as soon as we stepped out the store I got robbed of my last few coins! She raced after the thief, which was a Half Elf Rogue..they seem to have been acquainted “You Again?” She asked? Which was followed by him apparently making playful remarks at her “We got to stop meeting like this” “Seriously you might starve me if you keep stopping me.. wouldn’t you be sad if I died”. She and him bantered for a while.. before he gave her my nearly empty coin purse back.

She told him, designating him as Rho, to join the guild that he could make some honest coin. “He asked where the fun was in that”. I got a bit excited and said I might join the guild. Maine snickered a bit and told me that I might need to get better at staying out of harm’s way first. Then we hurt a scream…. This was it.. the moment where I could say a cool one-liner “Maybe Danger is just drawn to me”  or maybe something sugoi like “It is harm that should stay out of my way”… but Maine totally stole my spotlight. “Maybe it’s me, who is drawn to danger.. if that’s the case.. let’s get dangerous!’ She totally stole that from Dark Wing Duck! Anyway as we ran towards the sound I tripped on my tail and I think I hit my head on a trashcan!

Day 1
Evening

When I woke up it  was already sunset was upon us. I looked around but neither Rho or Maine were around. The screaming had stopped as well instead I could hear.. singing? Not like the beautiful kind.. but you know the songs that those sunburnt brits in shiny t-shirts sing when people  have chased a round leather object for 90 minutes. Why is my mind describing like that? I know the name.. but see it in my head all analytical like?! Is it a result of my good stats?! I could not linger on it .. we had a villain to defeat.. by now it has certainly captured my new friend and I must save her! This is the moment where the heroine will save her dashing young companion and they start traveling together! Let’s go!

Perhaps I have a very high wisdom modifier.. or perhaps my perception check is quite high despite my eyesight.. but it did not take me long to locate Maine. Apparently she was the reason people were singing. They lift her up and sing the song of a hero or something. Saying she vanquished a servant of the Dark Order. Apparently this Rho guy helped.. but then escaped before he could be arrested.

I finally met up with Maine in the bar and she forgot my name! I guess it might be the Tsundere.. like trope.. or well what is it called.. the one where the Heroine is invisible to her crush until she can prove her worth!?! Of course that would not happen in the first episode! She gave me on of the drinks people bought her and we talked a bit. She seems to be hiding something. At one point Rho showed up.. kind of disguised he apologized for stealing for me… but not before the two had this weird epic stare down for a moment they did not even seem to move at all. I kinda felt ignored.

I should report to the hero guild .. because apparently my money will only buy me like a weeks worth of food. So at least I have plans for tomorrow. Of course this is the perfect place to get a mysterious encounter.. someone who hands me a note.. “I know what you are, meet me at the docks tomorrow after sunset’ It will be amazing and I will finally shine. I also discovered that as a Tiefling I have an impressive blatter.. it was late at evening when I first had to make a sanitary stop… knowing this a medieval fantasy world though..

I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. Even expecting the worst it did not disappoint. If you think what Shou Tucker did to his daughter was disgusting, you have never seen a medieval toilet. Well it’s just a box.. with a hole.. but at least they had booths with locks in the tavern. When trying to open it I accidently dropped the key into the hole though… On the plus side I got some practice with my tail ………After a good wash up I got back to my company though.

Maine looked a bit shocked as Rho was trying to comfort her when I got back. He is acting super awkward for some reason it doesn’t seem to help her a lot and she calls him Baka for not understanding. Shouldn’t see call me stupid for being trapped in the bathroom?!  Maybe she is not my encounter but like a senpai?! I did not know what to think so inquired to her state of mind. She said it was nothing.. but I pushed on!  “I might not see a lot but this I can tell” .. reluctantly she shown a note a mysterious stranger just gave her.

It read “I know about you, meet me in Blackshroom Forest tomorrow when the clock strikes twelve times at night. I blurted out “Well technically he means the day after tomorrow then” after which I pushed my glasses back on my face… “Wait that is not a very main character thing to do, they do not nag about the details they rush in”.. Maine kind of ignored me and just got up and dashed out. …. Wait … “she helped a helpless character, had a flirty encounter, defeated a monster and got a plot hook onto the next episode?” Could it be?!  I AM A SIDE CHARACTER?

Day 1
Night

More investigation is needed,  however a continues streak of misfortune  has made this quest for knowledge rather impossible this day. I never was a lucky girl on earth either but it seems a lot worse now. Maine seems to have her secrets to.. but if she is the lead character of this story..perhaps my key to getting a life.. lies with her.. or a way to get home! Tomorrow I shall set out to the guild she is part of .. if I can join I am sure I can force myself in a role inside her life. I never heard of persons being reincarnated as a side character before.. so I am sailing blind here.. I need some money first..so tomorrow morning I will go to the guild, tomorrow afternoon I shall do a quest and then I will go to the forest to discover more about Maine. Now it’s time for bed.. but it will be a uncomfy night because I just spilled ink all the over my matra….

Am I a Mysterious? The Mystery Blogger Award

I have done  a fair share of blog awards but never did I ever do a Mystery Blog award. Now I do not really think I am particularly a mystery as I try to be open and share bits and bobs of real life with you as I really like to give you a peak in my head. 7Mononoke seems to think I am a mystery though.. because from their site Anime Rants I was nominated for this reward.. time to get things done! And thank you Mononoke for the Award. Hopefully I can clear some of my deep mysteries. 

Display the Blog Tag Logo

I encountered a few logos for this one so let’s look at these and appreciate them. The majority seems to focusses on the infinite of space and spherical shapes. After some research I found that the blue orby one is from the original creator. The Ravenclaw blue rendition of space does also emit some twilight zone like feelings so I get it.  The font seems to be one that was used in classical mystery novels. It’s a bit chunky for my taste but it gets the job done. It is definatly the rendition of the logo I like best! So way to go creator person!

Thank the blogger who nominated you
and provide a link to their blog.

I could just thank Mononoke by saying thanks.. but I kinda already did that in the intro. So how about a little thank you poëm.

Chocolates feels like too much,  but Rocks are to hard
How do I thank Mononoke for nominating me for this award?
Their site speciality is  analysing the anime mind!
I am too poor to give Mononoke a gift so perhaps I’ll just be kind.
So read this they are awesome , a blog so unique.
So visit their site and don’t you dare offer critique.
Now there is one more thing this poem must entail.
I have to provide a link….so please click this cute cocktail.

To Mononoke

Mention the creator of the award
provide a link. 

Hmmm I had to google this. This rule seems to have been forgotten a bit.  Apparently this tag was created by someone named Okoto Enigma. A Fashion, Lifestyle and Travel Blog I was utterly unaware about until now! So yay for this tag teaching me new things.  I could not manage to get the site work properly for me but I did find out it has a bit of everything. Like how to maintain the tires of your car but also a lot of stuff about lamps and home decoration. How to have a wardrobe with less garments facinated me..but I could not access the blog.  Still click the cocktail to visit their site. 

To Okoto Enigma

Tell three things about yourself

I am stupidly unlucky

My real life friends oftenly tell me I am cursed. I attract bad luck like a magnet. This can result in all sort of things. Most oftenly I have incidents of excessive bad luck. A Pinkie Day, or Elle Day as my friends call it. It often starts with a small bit of bad luck and increasingly gets worse. What starts with stumbling out of bed ends up with me throwing a knife in my own feet, me setting my  hair on fire, or me breaking stuff.

An example of one of these streaks in the recent past. I got up and bumped my tiny toe, after that I managed to block my atm card by internet banking stuff and misremembering the atm code.. when I went to unblock my pass to bank had a massive system crash so they could not unblock anything. This resulted in me missing my train because I could not charge my travel card. I decided to risk it.. because the I had an important meeting later and usually no one patrols that short bit of route I am on.. I got fined because this was the one day.. they did check. Later I would burn my hand with a pan and deleted a bunch of save files for my tabletops.. I cried and went to bed at like 7:30 pm without dinner.. I just wanted the day to be over.

I adore pet ducks

Even since I saw that tame duck in Friends there has been a desire slumbering inside me.. someday I want a pet duck! A duck to call my own. I will name it Fish.. or Pitpat… cause thats the sound it makes when it walks.  I do not know why but I just love the little creatures, they can emote their emotions so well, they make such adorable sounds and they can be fairly affectionate as well. They are just the right size for a pet.. as they look cute on a couch and in the tub. 

Cats don’t get along with me.. I am twitchy and can move uncontrolled and cats in my experience do not like that. The first association I make with cats would be “painful” . I do like dogs and dogs like me but my condition makes it so that I can’t always walk them so I would feel bad. A fish is not a pet.. so i will just have a pet named Fish.. and the idea pet.. would be a duck!..After I move out of a home with carpet though.

I am super afraid of wasps

Ducks are cute, cats are painful, dogs are adorable and wasps… wasps are evil. Whenever I see one I want to run away.. I can’t sit still and  when one is close it feels as there is a vice around my heart asking for me to scream. Why do I fear these animals so much.. well it has to do with my bad luck. I have been stung in so many horrible ways. Mostly due to misfortune and the action of my dad. We had this electric fly swatter and he hit one with it.. instead of killing it..he set it on fire..(it was a big one) it flew to me still and stung me.. while it was burning. Not a pleasant experience. He also knocked one under my baby but when I was just about to sit on a plastic seat in my bathing suit after swimming… it’s like sitting on a tack..that pushes some itchy poison in your system.

Once in a theme park I got stung by a wasp twice.. one inside both ears. I could not ear anything anymore as my teacher was yelling at me why I did not show up after she called for us. I was practically deaf..for a bit and I got into trouble for being stung twice… I ran away  upset to cry a bit.. just to be stung on the nose by a wasp. The have not been stung by a wasp in over 20 years but the fear remains.

5 Questions from Mononoke

What fields of study in science do you love?

I am very much a dreamer, I talk to my plushies because I think on some level they are real, I believe that smiles can conjure up rainbows and that one day it might rain chocolate. I am not a very scientific minded girl.  While Psychology and Noetics, as well as History sort of interest me, I do not love any science. It’s too black and white for me. Just because something is quantifiable as a rock doesn’t mean it is just a rock. For someone it might be a treasure, to the other something used to deal with that pesky bully.. to another it might be that thing that makes them trip and ruin their day. To a geologist it’s however always tha certain type of mineral and a rock. Overexplantion or to much knowledge makes the world less magical.  I am glad there are scientist to make things better but sometimes ignorance is bliss.

What Anime Really made you think and struggle emotionally
more than any others.

School Live is a weird little anime.. I did not know what it was when I watched it and I will not spoil it for those who still don’t know.. it is really something you should watch. Yet for those who know.. there is a scene where the main character is struggling with a radio. The moment the scene started I knew exactly where it was going. The implications of that scene I saw coming. I was yelling at my screen. DON’T  YOU DARE DO IT! DON’T ! YAMETE! When Yuki asks for help the answer feels like a gutpunch. By now in this show you know exactly what that answer means. The camera exits the room just to tell us what happens inside trough noise.. we know exactly what we will see if we get back into the room.

Watamote is another show that got under my skin, the choices that Tomoko makes can feel very confronting if you are a bit like her. It holds up a very comfortable mirror that feels like it is mocking you specifically at times. There were several instances where I really hated Tomoko for making a choice, realising it would be the one I would make at well. Watamote can be like a whirlpool. There is a clear sign of misery at times but you can’t help but being drawn in and relate.

Does Mononoke (and others) have permission to call me a nickname on WordPress or Social Media?

I prefer the name pet-name over nickname, as it shows it’s meant in an endearing way. Nicknames can be good or bad but a pet-name is always something positive. As long as it’s positive I do not mind. In the past my former friends have given me nicknames for my weird movement. Stuff like Lady-Limps-Alot, Droppy (I got dizzy a  and weak a lot due to my being sick but not yet knowing it was me being sick, but I fell a lot) or other stuff of that nature. No nega-nicknames! Or I will destroy you! I have a stand and a zanpakuto and soon more! 

Do you have nickname suggestions?

Honestly I think Pinkie is already pretty much  a good nickname. It is short, my character and my blog are super pink, and it has the right amount of floatiness and happiness  and love that is in my blog theme. One can not mess with perfection. It’s the same in Japanese as Pink becomes Pinku.. so we can’t really weeb it  up either. I am rather unlucky and clumsy but that could easily result in a negative nickname but we might be able to craft it into something cute.  Pinkie is not my real name of course though I kind of wish it was. In real life I am mostly known and referred to as Denise but that is only part of the full name and than there is babetised named yada yada.. So Pinkie D is cute and retro. Still if you can improve on Pinkie I think you are very smart. Luckilily I know a bunch of guys that can help!

Weird Question Time: What is the most ticklish part of your body?

I don’t really like being tickled, I have less body control than others so triggering a tickling reaction usually has me flailing all about. I kind of panic at that loss of control because I have slapped children in the face by accident when losing motor control, I have destroyed a friend’s glasses for tickling me and there was nothing I could do. So for your own safety do not tickle me. I do not really get tickeling either.. when do you tickle?

I am not particularly ticklish either like my reaction is more to a people manipulating my body to make me feel something weird.. as to enjoyment or aversion to tickling.  My hand palms are super sensitive though. Carrying shopping bags can be a real problem as it really hurts and tickling my hand palms does something similar. Too much input ! So weird.

Put Up A Link to your Best Blog

This rule of the blog tag is the one I will be breaking.  I am not in a very confident mood about my writing, nor do I think that my best post in my own eyes would hold any value. So I would like to ask my dear readers which one of my posts is their favorite. What do you enjoy reading?  That would help the blog out a lot more than me promoting something you may not like right. So I would like to conclude on that. At the very bottom of this post those who got nominated can find a copy pastable version of the rules. I look forward to seeing all of your blog posts and your comments! Love you al l and enjoy your stay in Paradise.
