VS: I don't remember teeth on PM, what panel is that from
TN: Omg you're reading it
TN: Last time I remembered you weren't reading hahaha
TN: It's one of the newest ones
VS: ...ah, yeah. 8D;;; Last week people were talking about it so I figured I should pick up where I left off and now I regret stopping where I did, because I kinda stopped right before the tricksters and I missed out on all of that
VS: and it blew me away
VS: ohh hmm
VS: where they're chasing the godcat?
TN: Yeah you said you were afraid of the fans?
VS: yeah, some of the fans, the really crazy ones 8| but I'm starting to see why
VS: xD yeah
VS: Oh, also, your tumblr helped me I think. :D
VS: helped me to become interested again I mean
TN: Pfft oh really? I'm flattered then hahaha I thought it would put people off
VS: xD I don't remember if it came from you, but it was something about the alpha kids when they hit god tier? That got my attention because I kinda ignored Roxy before, so I figured I should read through again
TN: I reblog all the random shits hahhahah Roxy
TN: Why would you ignore her omg she's the best <3
TN: By best I mean the most sensible one
VS: have no idea how I missed all her parts but yeah she's awesome
TN: but favorite was grimbark Jade (before she got squished, I mean)
TN: It's okay they can't kill Jade
TN: (forever, anyway)
VS: xD yeah
VS: ...hopefully >> <<;;
TN:They showed her with Calliope
> Jay: Check in with the others.
Time to get a move on. You can talk about tangentially related webcomics later.
TN: Oh yeah, anyone heard from Britt yet?
LL: Nope :(
LL: I'm sure she's still grinding somewhere though!
TN: I've still got my hands full so I can't handle that thing
TN: Maybe we should just
TN: bring in another friend
> Jay: Recruit a new player.
Normally you wouldn't bother with this crap, but hey, a workload is a workload. Even if the workload comes from a school that should, technically speaking, have long been obliterated by meteors. You guess you'll have to find a new player to pick up the slack.
You also wouldn't normally do this because there aren't really a lot of good candidates. But there is one fellow who might be interested. Someone who you thought was uninterested in this sort of thing until recently...
Who's this guy?
> Enter name.
No. Just no.
> Try again.
Your name is STEVEN. You have an unrivaled passion for writing OTHERWORLDLY FANFICTIONS, which often involve CATACLYSMIC REBIRTH of the source material's universe. And by otherworldly, you of course mean the Pokemon world. You also have a particular fondness for VULPINES and FICTIONAL ELECTRIC ANIMALS, especially when they are varieties of Pokemon. The electric animals, you mean. You adore all foxes equally.
You used to enjoy HIKING in the CHAPARRAL, but eventually lost interest because you have a strong aversion to INVERTERBRATE LIFE-FORMS. You really can't stand those things. Nonetheless, you still retain a certain fondness for the wilderness, and it sometimes resurfaces in your stories.
You also detest Wal-Mart. You have no personal bias against the HYPER-MONOPOLY CORPORATION that you definitely know has infected every corner of the world from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe even though you rarely ever leave your house, but you once read a book about a company that took over the world and it scared you. This definitely qualifies you to make that sort of judgement.
You are also a MODERATOR on the OTHERWORLDLY COMMUNITY of ROUTE 50, which you consider a PEACEFUL ABODE from where you start various CYBERSPATIAL EXPLOITS. Despite your RECURRENT PARANOIA, you are well-respected in your community. At least, you think you are. You never know who might be after your head on a plate.
> Examine posters.
There are no posters! Unlike many of your friends, you did not collect much paraphernalia to advertise your interests when you were younger. Really, it all just seemed like a waste of money to you. Your interests will change in a few years and then you'll have to find new posters, shoes, etc... Okay, maybe you're just lazy as fuck and don't get outside enough.
Wait. What's that behind the shutters?
> Examine the only poster hidden behind the shutters.
Oh. Right. You forgot you even had this. It was a free promotional poster for POKEMON COLOSSEUM, advertising the distribution of the legendary WISH MAKER Pokemon, JIRACHI. That was many years ago, though. Your interests have changed a lot over the years.
> Retrieve arms from dresser.
Your SWISS ARMY KNIFE is not a weapon to arm yourself with!!! As you were told repeatedly in the BOY SCOUTS, it is a tool with which comes the UTMOST RESPONSIBILITY of safety and caution. You have never used it on a living thing--human, animal, or vegetable.
By the way, a friend is pestering you. You probably didn't notice because you got distracted. Again.
> Steven: Answer friend.

terseNarcissist [TN] opened a new memo on board mIrAcLeS.

PS: (oh gosh sorry - hello new friend! i'm rachel, it's nice to meet ya!)
PS: (i'm just popping in for a bit to say hi and then i gotta go but yeah hiya!)
VS: Hello, nice to meet you, I'm Steven ^^
> Jay: Settle things privately.
Things will get hectic if you stay in the group chat. You switch back to the private chat with Steven.
VS: So, um
VS: How do I influence my role in the session?
TN: It's complicated
TN: Lemme send you the program
terseNarcissist has sent vulpineSpark OverseerProject.exe.
TN: Hmm yeah in a way I suppose but
TN: then again it also depends on your strife specibus
TN: what we all currently have is
TN: ninjakind, broomkind, clubkind, sciencekind, spearkind, and artkind
TN: if I am not mistaken
TN: Also if you change your name to steven stone I will love you forever
VS: most of my other friends would probably be confused
VS: also scared to be in the prescence of
VS: steven stone
> Steven: Check specibus.
Much as you hate to admit it, your swiss army knife is equipped under knifekind, not toolkind as recommended by the Boy Scouts. This isn't your original strife specibus, of course. You prefer lances, so naturally, you once had the spearkind specibus.
You got this one from your brother, who enjoyed playing with knives. A lot. You've never really used your knife as a weapon, though, except to whittle sharpened sticks. Too bad you don't have a stickkind specibus, huh?
Let's get back to influencing your session. What's the next step?
VS: where is a handy chooser-wheel-thing when you need one
TN: no shh we need to do it canonically
TN: which is what suits you best
TN: What about
VS: Rogue of Light
TN: or hope
VS: hope is weird
TN: wait are you reading that post
TN: Is it now hmm
TN: Not time or space?
VS: okay I'll be the space player :U
TN: I refuse to let you be the whatever player unless it fits you 8U
VS: Light seemed interesting but the part about Calliope hit kinda home <_< >_>
TN: Because I am a perfectionist and I don't like people ha-
VS: fanfic writers gotta stick together //jk
VS: time and hope are definitely out though
