Chase hid his hands behind his back, glaring at Flora.

"Cease your laughter," he snapped at her. "You've no call to mock such dastardly accusations; there is peace between us!"

"You should totally, like, lighten up," Flora told him. She was still laughing. "This is going to be, like, the most fun ever."

"I despise you," grumbled Chase. "First you refuse to join the masquerade, and now you plan to place false accusations on me--yes, Flora, I know your thoughts, you yet do broadcast them too loudly--"

"Oh, take the light into your nails and have fun," Flora retorted. "Come on, kitty, it's going to be the awesomest fun ever! And I'm totally, like, in costume--I came as a human, remember?"

"Aye, and it is the most boring idea you might have pursued," Chase said. "I, too, could have come as a human; however, I chose to have fun."

Flora's eyes widened, and she gasped dramatically. "By killing yon lady?" she exclaimed in thrilling tones that caught the ear of just about everyone who had ears and was in her half of the room. "Such is your idea of fun? For shame!"

Chase groaned, and smiled brightly at all the people who had turned to stare. "You fiend," he muttered to Flora. "You--" And here he said a phrase in the only other language they shared, which, while only mildly insulting, did not translate well to English. "And I know not why Kimberly's heart turns towards you," he added. "You are awful."

Flora just gave him a sweet smile and reached for an oddly fancy bit of smoked salmon on a cracker. "Let's see you, like, talk your way out of this," she said once she had finished chewing. "Floor's yours, kitty-cat."

Chase groaned again, and turned back to the staring people. "I really hate you. More than any one of my generation has ever hated one of yours. Save Lisbeth. And Jackson. Tell Kimberly I am no longer speaking to you when she returns."

Flora gave him a very sloppy salute and reached for another cracker.

((Hullo! These are some of my NaNo people. These two are aliens of a sort, masquerading in daily life as human teenagers; Kimberly is a real human teenager, who happens to know both of them (via school and neighbors). Lisbeth and Jackson both belong to Chase's subgroup of aliens. Since they are my NaNo folks, they're still in development, so if you see them adapting and evolving a bit as the rp goes on...that's why. I'm also really excited to start writing their actual book today, so...yesssssss :D


  • Michael has some announcements.Alleb, Sun Nov 1 00:37
    It took Michael a minute or two to reach the stage again, but he managed. He climbed up and motioned for the band to quiet down, which caught most of the crowd's attention. "Good evening!" he said,... more
    • ((Closing remarks!))Alleb, Sun Nov 29 20:51
      After an entire month, I'm finally wrapping this up. I'm sorry I took so long; it was irresponsible of me. And now, for the conclusion that no one was expecting!... more
      • ((I had a blast!))SeaTurtle, Sun Nov 29 23:43
        ((Thanks for hosting this. It was really fun!))
      • Cop-out! Cop-out, I say!eatpraylove, Sun Nov 29 21:35
        But other than that, this was really fun! I hope we can do it again next year! By the way, what's the prize for the costume contest?
        • I hope so too!Alleb, Sun Nov 29 21:47
          Perhaps a bit of a cop-out. ^_^ It was fun to write, though. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest! Chris gets a massive sack of candy. -Alleb
    • Chris and Miguel arrived at the stage area.eatpraylove, Sun Nov 1 21:22
      "It's a shame she died," said Miguel, trying to be "in-character." "I hear she went flamethrower-crazy after killing that Rose Potter chick." "If you ask me, that girl who found her did it," Chris... more
      • "Bwah?"Iximaz, Sun Nov 1 22:05
        Zeb stopped short and turned, careful to not let the tea spill out of the cups he'd been holding. "Oh. Yeah. We did that. Thanks." He gave a weak grin. "Ask away!"
        • Miguel grinned back, hoping to ease the tension.eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 18:31
          "I promise they won't be too nosy. Anyway, if you had to attack the Aviator--say, if that was the only way to keep her from blowing up something important--what move would you use? Also, does she... more
          • Zeb anxiously shifted his weight.Iximaz, Mon Nov 2 18:49
            "Um, probably Thunder Wave, followed by Thunder Fang? And I knew her last two bodies were allergic to Bleeprin, but I don't know about this one. Maybe?" He thought for a moment. "Oh, I know Time... more
            • "Kind of." Miguel ate a handful of M&Ms.eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 21:22
              "One last question before I go bother one of the other suspects: Do you think Michael was too obvious in trying to make Chase look guilty? This isn't exactly on-topic, it just seemed odd that only... more
              • "Dunno."Iximaz, Mon Nov 2 21:50
                "I thought he was just adding it for some flare." Zeb shrugged. "Sorry I can't help more."

      • Miguel approached the strange group.eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 22:49
        "Excuse me, can I reach over you for a minute?" He grabbed one of the crackers that the dramatic girl had taken. "Thanks. By the way, I'm Miguel and I'm participating in the investigation. Could I... more
        • "Wha--oh. Uh, certainly."DawnFire, Thu Nov 5 18:44
          Chase smiled at Miguel, trying to look inherently trustworthy. Judging by Flora's subsequent giggles, he looked rather silly; he stopped. "You have certain questions, I presume?" Flora leaned back... more
          • "Yup. I promise not to be too nosy."eatpraylove, Fri Nov 6 16:15
            "First question: Had you heard of the Aviator before she went into Rose Potter and/or...that other one?" He successfully resisted the urge to spit on the ground.
            • Chase stared at him.DawnFire, Fri Nov 6 16:46
              "Is not Rose Potter a name?" he asked, and then paused. "Is it, perchance, a building? A school? I have not heard of it. As to the Aviator, I have never heard tell of her before today, nor have I... more
    • “What a bother.”Desdendelle, Sun Nov 1 03:01
      A rather gaudy beach ball that was floating in the air dipped down before bouncing up again. It prodded a brown-aquamarine maniple field at the man it was trying to converse with without much... more
      • "Hey, which one of you is Amris?"eatpraylove, Tue Nov 3 07:14
        "My name's Miguel. I'm participating in the investigation, and I need to ask him some questions about the Aviator." Hopefully Amris will be more helpful than Chase, he thought.
        • The man shook his head.Desdendelle, Tue Nov 3 14:02
          “Backrow,” he offered as an explanation. “I’m Amris,” the beach ball said. It poked Chris with a maniple-field. “What do you want?”
          • "O...K, then."eatpraylove, Tue Nov 3 14:50
            "First question: Is it possible for robots like you to do damage without leaving a mark on the target?" ((OOC: Um, Miguel's doing the investigating, not Chris. Chris is in the costume party.))
            • The beach-ball tilted to one side.Desdendelle, Tue Nov 3 15:13
              “Define ‘leaving a mark’,” it said. “Rather: define the observing party.” “OK, can I go now?” the man asked. ((OOC: Derp.))
              • "Yeah, go ahead," said Miguel.eatpraylove, Tue Nov 3 19:49
                "Also, I'm talking about a visible mark, such as a scar or entry wound." Weirdest. Robot. Ever.
                • Despite what he said...Desdendelle, Wed Nov 4 15:49
                  Backrow made no move to go. He did put his hand in a pocket, adjusting his keffiyeh with the other. Something grey pulsated inside the beach ball. “Again: define the observing party,” it said.... more
                  • "Ugh, never mind."eatpraylove, Wed Nov 4 18:04
                    "Next question: What's your general opinion of Time Lords?"

                      “As a race? They are somewhat curious, what with their regeneration process,” it said. “The victim? “Aviator”? I have not met her.” Backrow, meanwhile, calmed down and crossed his hands, leaning... more
                      • Finally, a straight answer, Miguel thought.eatpraylove, Wed Nov 4 18:39
                        "OK, last question: Do those fields you've been poking people with have the ability to injure sentient beings?" Miguel was reasonably sure, by this point, that Zeb wasn't the killer. Chase hadn't... more
