Yes, but we haven't established how this conscious uncoupling will take place. We are open to ideas!

There should be a waiting period. In case they change their minds. If one doesn’t want to stop then a mediator should get involved. Maybe a pre-ceremony document outlining what the expectations are and what each should take with each other when/if the hydra dissolves

I wholeheartedly approve these changes and will be accepting applications for potential hydra partners - if you're interested please fill out the attached form and answer all of the questions and then return to me. Please note that while question 18 does not *require* an interpretative dance to be considered complete, providing one will certainly boost your chances. Points will be given, as always, for style and rhetorical flair.

Does creative use of a flare gun during the interpretive dance count as rhetorical flair?

Hmmmm it's a little hard to argue that *any* component of an interpretive dance should count towards *rhetorical* flair, but i would imagine it would net some style points.

This is unacceptable for you to not have a process for this! My hydra partner is yet to bear me a single scum victory, and it is intolerable that I should be shackled to my partner waiting for your permission to be freed from this ill-conceived union while many suitable potential hydra partners of game-playing age are receiving hydra proposals from gentlemen not nearly as fine or important as myself!

I know this was an April Fool’s joke but I really feel like something along these lines is sorely needed atp
I’ve had a lot of dead-weight hydra partners that probably resulted in me losing interest in mafia
I’ll acknowledge I’ve also had my own issues but I at least try to do my best, even if that often is practically nothing.

I think that's between you and the people you choose to hydra with unfortunately.

If someone tells you they’re looking for a hydra partner to carry them, just say no. :P - unless it’s of course very time specific, like they’re v/la for a pre-determined amount of time. That’s obviously different but not if it’s ongoing.

I don’t mind someone if there at least active behind the scenes and have strengths that I lack say, mech - which has generally not been my strongest suit but if they’re literally not doing anything and there almost impossible to get a hold of, I’d pass.

So, I’d be okay carrying in a mech complex game as long as I had a hydra partner who was proficient in that because I really enjoy those games but I more often than not get tripped up by it,
I’ve really only had one bad hydra experience to date and anyone reading my GTKAS can probably figure out who that is but have also experienced dead weight hydra partners, so yeah - that’s not much fun either.
Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

Look at past games then, it’s extremely unlikely that if they have a history of being active in their other games, the one game you hydra with them they will suddenly become dead weight and vice -versa.
