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!

---------------------------------------------------------------

Michael decided to leave Minty where she was, and fled back to the stage once more. The party goers were already losing steam; it was time to wrap all of this up. He motioned for the band to quiet down once more and climbed the steps up the stage.

"Good evening!" he said again. As he waited for the crowd to still, he realized that he needed to use his Dracula impression again. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I have come to announce the winner of the costume contest, and the conclusion of our murder mystery! First, the contest." He had kept an eye on the entrants during the party, and had easily determined the winner. "Our champion is... Chris, as Titans!Robin! Your prize will be waiting for you at the door!" He led the room in applause.

"And now, the conclusion of our murder mystery! Our three suspects, if you recall, are Zeb the Luxray, Chase the lumberjack, and Amris the Drone. You have investigated, and now we will reveal. The true murderer, is--"

That's it.

Oh, you weren't expecting me, were you? No one ever does. I'm the Narrator. I'm the voice in your head that reads the story; without me, you wouldn't be reading this.

I killed the Aviator.

I used Plot Convenience. By definition, it was easy.

Anyway, motive: I'm tired of being ignored. When's the last time you thought about the Narrator? When's the last time you, I don't know, were thankful for your ability to read a story? Let me guess, never? You haven't thought about me. So I'm done. I interceded in this RP as a starting point, but I'll keep going.

Trust me.

"...Michael?"

"Alleb? Is that you? I can't-- I can't see--"

"I can't either. Did the lights go out? But I can't hear anyone but you-- what's happening?"

"I don't know. Some weird PPC thing?"

"I suppose so. I'm going to try to find the exit-- here's my hand, let's try to leave."

---------------------------------------------------------------

And that's the end! Thank you all for participating; it was really fun! What do all of you think of the ending?

    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

        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

            "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

              • "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."

        "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

                      “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
