    I haven't had time to bask in the glory of my prize!

    Ah well. I'll let Bailey enjoy that instead!

    Also, yeuch! A goopy Ditto, is that? I hate to think of Ditto in that way, what a little slime ball!

    I had some other comments to make, but I've forgotten them at this time. And they were going to be such funny, snarky quips, too! Ah well. There's always next time.

    Also, Ech strikes again with his Kirlia. What a frightful little thing. Small wonder Bailey's sisters consorted with her(?).

      Yeah it's a Ditto.

      Ahahahaha.

      Those poor girls. I hope it's roomier in there than it looks.

      Thanks again for including your fellow player in your post, Jauntier.
      It is my hope that sooner or later, the protagonists will be working more closely together.
      Though I don't mind going solo for mission 1.

      Also, the foresight on this Ralts, wow, with that part about hiding his bowtie in that one specific situation that wouldn't even have occurred to me. :0

      This purple starry robe you mention, it comes kind of out of the blue at least to this particular reader. It's just one of the articles of clothing stored in the Coat Check? If so, why does the Ralts beeline to this one's pocket in particular?

      Oh, of course! As much as I want Bailey to pursue what he will with this mystery behind the painting, I (and therefore he) have the full intention of interacting with the others, in whatever manner. Best to keep an eye on them all, of course. The action's in the background!

      Haha! I like to keep a wit about him! I intend to make him a very purposeful character. I personally revel in thinking about the little things, so if it can be helped (and plausible for a bright child, nonetheless), measures will be taken and situations calculated. It's the stuff I love!

      That robe is his own. He wears it when he's off work.

        LOL BAILEY TRYING TO GET VISSI INTO TROUBLE

        If Vissi's going down, she's bringing QQ with her. And if QQ goes down, this entire RP crashes. So psyduck you.

          No wonder Aquacorde didn't like Vissi's app Ech, lol

          I hate Vissi rn

          I saw what you did too, you tried to dress her up like "flop flop flop oh i'm so innocent, what's going on, i'm sooo oblivious"

          > "EWWWW WTF" @ client's face

          "anyway oh i'm genuinely interested in what's going with these crystals i'm just curious"

          > DAMNING STATEMENT, oops it slipped

          Vissi ain't cute, she ain't sweet, she ain't DUMB. You had a checklist of stuff your walrus could dump on, and tried to drop as much one-line sabotage as you could fit in, and in front of this needy reporter, omg

          LOL Ech I can't wait for Kiyo to post cuz QQ gonna mop the floor with somebody, and all the better if Bailey doubles the damage so long as it get no heat on QQ. You can blast her all you want but don't you dare bring cute ol' Aureole into it, too far, she's just trying to live her life.

              This playful OOC squabble over scandal and intention is firing me up to join in! Too bad Bailey's busy redirecting attention to Vissi, who I think may not be the "ideal" kind of innocent, but she definitely is beginning to show a contrast between her hypersensitive self-awareness and an almost childlike attention span for actual things in front of her, and an immediate reaction. It crosses me as very reflective of the inter- and intrapersonal influences of her past, younger self.

              Also I want to see QQ fight with Claudette. The dialogue would be a hoot. I'd hate to see our lovely ladies QQ and Vissi fight though. If my character wasn't supposed to be a very intelligent 10-year-old boy and went with my first choice--unabashedly, a brazen self-insert--I'd be all over to white knight her. Haha!

              Also, talking about innocence, now I remember the compliment I wanted to give Glowy! Calling Morimoto the Very Hungry Caterpillar made me chuckle! How charming!

              On another note, I think of all the VIPs, I would definitely, definitely want to talk with Pilot Union the Magneton. Madison, Square, and Parker and their concept are so fascinating to me Kiyo, that I think if not via The Guest List, I may find a way to pursue Union in-post for one reason or another—whichever comes first.

                Makes me twitch --

                "I wanted to know about your drawing -- your art."
                -----
                Jean-Georges stood still for a moment, unsure of why the Linoone was asking the same question again. The octopus squinted at his peer to see if he could detect a particular angle they were trying to get at, but didn't find anything in their intention other than a sheer lack of understanding. Backing down, he pondered how to reinterpret his answer in symbolism that the land-dweller could easily connect to; the concept of "art" on land was oddly disjointed from language, and while this dissonance made it so there were no exact words to describe the position that harnessed his skills, he did remember seeing a piece in a museum that depicted a strange creature in a role similar to his own. He tried his best to recreate it and handed the result to his inquisitor, pointing at the picture and then back to himself a few times.

                Spoiler:

                -----
                A realization quickly trailed in the wake of remembering his day trip, and he paused his explanation to pluck out a pad of graph paper from a little nook underneath the bar where he kept a trove of his material possessions. It was new and clearly so - judging by the cleanliness of the paper and the amount of sheets left to be used - and Jean-Georges indicated to a small doodle on its first page.

                Spoiler:

                -----
                After a bit of silence fondly appreciating the portrayed, he flipped the page over, spat some ink on his tentacle, and made a sloppy copy of it. He mocked a tutting sound and waved his appendage back-and-forth, as if disapproving his last action, and picked up a pen. He then redrew the image with incredibly accuracy while guiding his - what one could refer to as a hand, perhaps - with another. Once he was finished, he laid the pen across the arms of the creature depicted on top of the pile.

                "What the hell is that?"
                -----
                It seemed that the excitable Kirlia had taken deep interest in his drawing of the abyss! The Octillery seated himself besides her and skimmed through various entries that concerned it in his sketchbook; of which there were plenty, as it was one of his favorite subjects.

                Makes me shake --
                • Edited OOC OP to be reflective of the new unlimited guest list questions, favor, and inactivity rules.
                • Overhauled the structure of the Essentials Post; it's a bit long for my tastes, but it flows much better. It includes lots of new fan art, and profiles on your player characters! I figured it would be a fun exercise so that (a) there's a comprehensive list of characters, and (b) you guys get insight into how I view your characters with my corny descriptions. If you take issue with something written or would like to revise your character's entry to be more accurate to how you view them, please let me know!
                • Also, you may have noticed that Jean-Georges has a "Interrogatories Compilation." If you take a look at the Essentials Post, you'll see a little spoiler tag under his profile - and Claudette's - that links to a repurposed old post of mine that stores all their Guest List questions and answers, with anchor links for your convenience!
                • Edited the Off the Menu logo into the IC OP.
                • PJ's accent has had a bit of an expansion. While I've edited my GM Posts to reflect this, I'm waiting on Jauntier to edits his posts where PJ appears as well. Just letting you guys know.

                This dessert takes the cake --

                Most certainly! Hour 1 (and 2, somewhat) missions were built with the intention of accommodating player drops/adds and allowing the characters to be close enough together to have the option to interact/combine efforts but enough space to come into their own as characters if the player wants to fly solo; since I don't know about you guys, but it sometimes takes me a while to really understand the voice of my character. But later missions do have lots of cooperative opportunities! And there's one that I'm very excited about concerning this, haha.

                I'm glad you're showing an interest in VIPs who have yet to appear proper! Union is definitely someone I'm very curious about myself, since I have a general idea of what I want to do with him, but am not solid on how his voice operates. He kinda reminds me why I like PJ, though; although they have some thick filters when it comes to communicating, they definitely hold colorful anecdotes and worldbuilding.

                  Puzzles Abound


                  Looking down at the pages, Cadbury held a baffled expression, mouth open, for longer than is proper. Jean-Georges, why must you be so inscrutable?

                  Just when he thought he'd started to find something he understood, further drawings appeared that seemed so unrelated to the topic that he could not find their intended meaning.

                  The only thing that lightened his mood, and inspired a small smile from the badger, was the depiction of this pile of Spindas. "This is a very cute drawing, Jean-Georges! I'm fond of it. Have you showed Mr. Clarke?"

                  His smile slipped away. "Ah, yes, I'm getting off topic, sorry."

                  Cadbury moved back into scrutinizing the images and what they might mean. "So what I'm getting from this one, is that you're saying you are a, ah... What did they call those... A scribe? I suppose that would begin to explain all the writing... But that's a very different skill than learning to draw, yes?"

                  He looked at the Spindas, the way Jean-Georges sloppily copied a bastardization of the image down, then did it again with a guided limb, in a neat and tidy...

                  Copy.

                  "Wait!" His ears were perked to full excitement now. "The written language like a scribe, the drawing of the scribe, and the Spindas, and even the wine and the menu items! You're a copier!" he exclaimed with a point. "A, ah, a duplicator!" Some other words came to mind, but they all had negative connotations. Nnnnot that Jean-Georges would pick up on those.

                  "You learned to copy what you saw on paper, be it writing or pictures. Is that it?" he asked with a smile.

                  His expression shifted to something a little more curious. "I saw that you mimed someone else's 'tentacle' guiding your own, there. Did another person teach you to do this -- did you have a teacher? Or did you learn by yourself, alone?"

                        The IC is getting out of hand, LOL

                        It's only been 20 minutes. QQ and Vissi are so extra right now. Idek about B.T. but he's clearly coming after baby boy Bailey, and Cadbury got low key savage on Morimoto (my favorite NPC, btw) like what is going on.

                            But anyways, do you have any friends?

                            ... regardless of your answer, do you want to be my friend? I can draw too.

                            Jean-Georges perked up at "scribe" and nodded; that was exactly what the lady at the museum had called him, too! The octopus had been struggling to remember the term since he had enlightened her, and he couldn't very well ask her again once she was gone. Though, he seemed a bit disconcerted when Cadbury had called writing different to art once more, because he - personally - couldn't discern any distinction between the process in creating what his peers called "traditional art" and "words." Perhaps that was because of his method; he wasn't so much a "duplicator" - as his furry companion had commented - as he was a tracer, or whatever Mister PJ had titled him that seemed to suit well.

                            The Octillery thought about what the phrase "teacher" meant to him ... certainly, there was one overwhelmingly obvious answer in accordance with both his spiritual and practical life, but up on land it meant someone who actively aided another to harness skills so that the latter could functionally perform said act without the educator's further guidance. He gestured to the picture of Spindas once more and waved a pen around, giving credit where it was due when it came to matters such as using more socially appropriate writing utensils - as he had explained - but the relationship he had with his mother hit the nail more on the head: but whether or not she could be considered a "teacher" per se or simply a taskmaster that requires and reinforces artistic skill in her children to convey her own knowledge, was up for debate. In any case, he flashed one of his favorite renditions of her:

                            Suddenly, the octopus remembered that an old flip book of his kept an illustrated copy of his technique, and pulled it out for the badger to peruse.

                            When Cadbury had finished, Jean-Georges' eyes had gone noticeably glossy and he was sketching a small, gothic-styled portrait of the Linoone. Once he had finished, his cheerful gaze returned, and he presented the sketch to his friend with a joy that was almost palpable.

                            "Do you have any friends?"
                            -----
                            He wiggled all his tentacles around in elation, letting out the highest pitched gurgle his course voice could produce. He grasped the hand of the Kirlia and patted it warmly, incredibly excited at the prospect of procuring another friend. He had persuaded many friends to join him since his permanent surfacing on land and more were always welcome! Jean-Georges snagged up the picture he was gifted and slipped it right behind the front cover of his sketchbook.

                            -----
                            Considering that she had asked, and that soon she would be joining them, the Octillery took a nearby framed standing chalkboard and detailed a picture of his other friends for the Kirlia:

                            These two were his favorite subjects; he had met them long, long ago on the beach when he was just a drone of a Remoraid, before the current age - when their peculiar species dominated the earth - and there were thousands just like them in the sea that he had befriended since, but there was something more artistic about this duo that pleased him. They were very young and eager, and loved the water, so their descent was very poetic and fitting, he thought. Which reminded him; he had a related picture in his repertoire about their baptism!

                            Though, he was a bit biased. It was his first time out meeting anyone or working for his mother, and granted he was in a swarm of his brothers and sisters so the couple most likely didn't take any particular notice in him, but the specialness of the encounter never left him.

                              It's particularly amusing that not only is QuiQui mistaking a woman for a man, she's mistaking a PREGNANT woman for a man.

                              I have to wonder how she thinks "real hair" works if she is making the assertion while it's not even attached to her scalp, ahaha.

                              Also, we should start a tally of how many times characters wring wet things out in this roleplay, because it's starting to stack up.

                              Cadbury should be very glad right now that he walked into the MEN'S washroom and not the other one.

                              Edit: Just posted -- Cadbury's formal manner of speaking even sticks with him in the men's washroom, heh heh. I'm pleased.
