MD: [act]Walks over to the rope. Tests its tightness.[/act] I'm not getting through this any time soon
Deb: That's the point!
MD: [act]Sits on a random purple beanbag! [/act] Now the people will start to flock in!
Deb: Want some hot chocca?
MD: [act]Looks around.[/act]Sure why not. [act]Winks.[/act] I ahve the time
Smuffy: *wanders in, the way wandies usually do*
*is drawn to the metal cabinets*
Oooooh, I just want to touch them so bad!
(0-) *pokes 'Do not touch' sign* Bahahaha, I touched it! I touched it! I'm such a baddie....!
Ceirwan: *follows Smuffy in*
Umm....I do believe that the sign was actu- 8-|
Smuffy: *covers Ceirwan's mouth* Just let me have my fun! ":(
Ooooh! Chocca! *POUNCE!*
[act]EI and Gilbert find themselves appear in the middle of tha lounge[/act]
Gilbert: That is going to get rather annoying.
EI: Oh, there you are! But [act]looks around[/act] where are we exactly?
Gilbert: [act]Sniffs the chocca machine[/act] What does this do?
Chocca Machine: BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP
EI: I think you made it mad [act]sniggers[/act]
Gilbert: What did I do? [act]pushes random buttons[/act]
Chocca Machine: [act]Makes funny noises then dispenses two hot cups of chocca[/act]
EI: [act]Grabs a cup and sits on one of the cozy purple bean bags[/act] Ahhh, a nice quiet room.
Gilbert: [act]Is looking at the machine like it will attack him[/act] Okay, if you say so.
Deb: [act]Runs into the lounge dragging mystery date by a paper cover arm.[/act] Now where were we...
MoonDream: 8-| Ahhhh, having Chocca I think.
Deb: Nice. ;)
Gilbert: [act]to Deb[/act], haven't I seen you in a past ball?
EI: I think it was her who played you in Charm School. And kept getting drunk with Swallow.
Gilbert: What is this Charm School? Played me?
Deb: It will be easier for you if you don't try to understand.
Gilbert: Ahhh, I see.
Mystery Guest: Mhmph.
Gilbert: That is quite an ugly hairless creature.
Mystery Guest: [act]Angry noises come from under the paper bag[/act]
EI: Just insult the paper bag man, there you go.
Gilbert: There's a man under there? [act]Looks at paper bag oddly[/act] That looks marginally more uncomfortable than my costume.
EI: I gave you a choice and you chose that costume. I don't know why you picked the largest gun though. Need to compensate for something?
Deb: That gun better be fake like the other weapons.
Gilbert: [act]Doesn't feel like testing that theory[/act]
Helena: [act]wanders into the lounge[/act]
Gwynedd: [act]is draged along behind her, tied up in a rope[/act]
Helena: ooh! hot choca! :D [act]dances on over to the hot choca machine, all the while draging Gwen-Gwen[/act]
Deb: [act]thinks[/act] You know what...I remember the drunken antics of Gilbert and Swallow during Charm School, but I was Roland. I think Firefall might have been Gilbert though.
EI: Oh well same RPG different character. [act]Shrugs[/act]
Gilbert: What does all that mean? What do you mean you were Roland? How can you be Roland? Roland is Roland...Isn't he? ??? Hold on! Who is Firefall and what do you mean she was me, I mean I , I mean she was i, I mean I was she, I mean... Never mind! X:-/
DMG: [act]Mumbles[/act] :-/
Gilbert: Yeah you can say that again. I really aught to know better than to come to these things. I always end up either drunk or confused or both. :(
EI: [act]Pats Gilbert on the head. [/act] So who is under the bag? :P
Deb: Not telling but he is drop dead georgous!
EI: I know of only one character you would swoon over [act]is interuppted by an extremely confused Gilbert[/act]
Gilbert: Where is this Firefall? I want to know how she pulled off being me when I am centainly the only me around.
Deb: You will probably just give yourself a headache.
DMG: [act]Is silently bathing in his gorgeousness under the paper bag[/act]
EI: Is he usually this quiet? Or is he taking your compliments too much to heart?
Gilbert: [act]mumbles something about no-one thinking he's handsome[/act]
EI: What was that?
Gilbert: Nothing |:|. Please tell me that the bar is opening soon. The best way to survive one of these things is having a thoroughly glittering time with the penguin waiters.
Deb: [act]with a stern look! [/act] No Glitter! We know what happens when that stuff starts flying around. is distracted by a s*c*p Yay!
Gilbert: Is she always like this?
EI: Yep. :P
Deb: [act]Rushes over to the strange looking machine that has just been uncovered in the corner.[/act] It's here, yippee
Ei: [act]Wanders over to have a look.[/act] Wow that turned out great didn't it?
Smuffy: But what is it?
Ceirwan: I'd hate to think.
Gwynedd: Could someone please get me out of this rope?
DMG: [act]Mumbles something like...at least you've only got rope and not a paper bag and duct tape.[/act]
Helena: [act]Looks closer at machine[/act]
Deb: [act]Grins[/act]. It's a fortune machine, see, you put your question in there and get your fortune told. ;D
The fortune machine is up and running in the first post. Have fun!
Helena: oooohhh.... shiny! :D :D i wanna touch it... [act]has a Dory moment[/act]
Gwynedd: [act]has somehow managed to get out of his ropes, but finds that he has been handcuffed to Helena[/act] :|
Helena: :roll: shiny... [act]pokes future-telling machine[/act]
Gwynedd: ... why me? :-|
Helena: [act]suddenly snaps out of it[/act] [act]crash-tackle/glomps Gwen-Gwen[/act] because you know you love me! ;D
Gwynedd: :| great... when can i have some mead?
Helena: tomorrow. until then i'm just going to have to put up with you being chained to me [act]sigh[/act]
Helena and Smuffy: [act]Drag a resisting Gwynedd and a confused Ceriwan out of the lounge and back to the Ballroom where it seems they have been all along.[/act]
DMG: Mumble, wwrrrgggg
Deb: Oh you'll be fine. It's just for another day or two...or four
Gilbert: Is it really safe to keep him gagged that long?
Deb: Oh hush you.
Gilbert: Maybe I should see if Roland is here yet. He should be able to determine if your date is under prolonged risk.
Deb: I played Roland in an RPG, so shouldn't I be able to tell?
Gilbert: RPG? I swear, the only tme I get thoroughly confused is when I enter these Obernet gatherings.
EI: But it's so much fun seeing you confused.
DMG: [act]random noises[/act]
EI: Hmmm... Let's see if this fortune telling machine actually works. [act]Wanders over to the machine and asks:[/act] Is Deb's date [censored]?
Machine: Ask Maruman [act]followed by a slightly creepy wolf sound[/act]
EI: Why was I censored when I said [censored]? [act]Frowns[/act] Honestly, who's doing that? Why can't I say [censored].
Gilbert: Maybe if you tried spelling it?
Deb: Quite an odd occurance.
EI: So you and the other hosts aren't in on the censoring?
Deb: Maybe my date would like to stay annonymous.
[act]Princess Leia wanders in, flustered and bewildered[/act]
EI: You look like you need a good strong chocca, Princess Leia.
Leia: Another person who knows my name! Does everyone?!
[act]All Ober members in the room nod their heads, while their guests shake theirs[/act]
Gilbert: Apparently, it's best if you don't try to understand. Where are you from?
Leia: Orginally, the planet Alderann, until that was destroyed by Darth Vader :( Then where-ever the main Rebel Alliance base was.
Gilbert: Planet? 8-|
Deb: Remember, easier if you don't try to understand..
Gilbert: [act]Looks happier[/act]
EI: Here's a chocca, Princess Leia.
Leia: [act]Stares at the mug of thick brown liquid[/act] Ah.. are you sure this is safe to drink?
EI: Sniff it - it smells good :D Then have a try :)
Leia: Um well I guess anything is better than military food and protein packs..
[act]Ari walks in, her date trailing behind in their restrictive paper bag apparel[/act]
Ari: See. One Lounge, right where I said it would be.
AMD: Wow, you're like one of those psychic people....
Ari: That sounds like sarcasm, but without being able to see your face, I'm just going to pretend it was a compliment.
AMD: You are so deluded.
Ari: Thank you. I try :D
Now, did you want a hot chocca?
AMD: And how am I going to drink it??
Ari: ........ osmosis? :-|
Deb: [act]Smiles sweetly[/act] Well yes thats true.
AMG: Whats true?
Deb: At least your mouth isn't taped, so you could probably get a straw in there somewhere.
Ari: Oh I'm sure we'll work something out.
Leia: Oh, it's another bag man.
Ari and Deb: XD
EI: Chocca everyone? [act] Hands out mugs of chocca[/act]
Gilbert: Oh no, how am I suposed to tell them apart.
Ari: [act]side long look at DMG [/act] ASk them to dance. :P
Gilbert: 8-| ermmm, I think I'll have another go at the futureteller machine. [act]wanders off muttering[/act] I really need to get Garth in here to check this out...
[act]YellowEyes and Jak wander in discussing the excitment of the ball room[/act]
Jak- [act]Stops, with eyes wide[/act] :O What are these amazing looking computer machines? [act]walks over to explore further, and reachs a hand through the rope[/act]
YE- Noo! can't you read- do not touch! :-|
Jak- i bet i could get these going if i was given a chance- it may work like INES!
YE- i'm sure all will be revealed eventually. Choca?
Jak- but, but.... 8-|
YE- Leave it please or we'll get in to trouble! [act]notices Leia[/act] oh lord [act]shuffles to hide behind a bean bag[/act]
Jak- I wonder if i just..... [act]checks around to see if anyone is watching as he leans over the rope[/act]
*scuttles in with Elkar*
FL: This is cute. I like it.
Elkar: *sigh* I miss Cinda.
FL: All in good time, you'll be back with her before you know it. Until then, enjoy your time with me, it could have been worse :)
Elkar: *looks around at the strange couples and nods*
bm: [act]runs wildly into the thread, acciedently knocking Jak over, thankfully away from the roped off section[/act]
Jak: ":( Why do you say thankfully?
bm: Because if I hadn't knowcked you over, they would have. [act]points at s*c*p who are looking menacing[/act]
YE: X:-/ I did warn you.
Gevan: [act]enters behind bm at a more reasonable pace[/act] [act]shakes his head at bm[/act] Why are you so hyper about these things? What could possibly have got you into such a state of excitement you hvae to go running, leaving me to try and catch up because I don't know my way around? And why, oh why have you got such a smug look on your face?
bm: [act]indignantly[/act] I'm exctited because this is my first Mystics Ball and it is so much fun, so of course I am going to go slightly hyper and run when something new opens. And I am smug for two reasons. One because I stopped Jak from getting in trouble and it is hillarious to see him so scared of the s*c*p. XD Secondly because it has become a favourite past time of mine to get you in a bother! XD XD
Akward Silence: [act]leaves the sus rid threads for a moment to see the sights[/act] 8)
Deb: ... Chocca anyone?
[act]Jak backs away from the machines and retreats to the other side of the room[/act]
Jak- i think we should have some Choca and sit on this couch
YE- sure, its the perfect place to watch Gevan be annoyed! ;D
Angina: [act]comes rushing in looking frantic and peeved[/act] Stupid girls costume [act]incoherent mumble[/act] Did she think I was my sister . . . just 'cause we're twins doesn't mean we look alike . . . [act]incoherent mumblings[/act]
DMG: [act]finds self being walked into[/act]
Angina: 8-| Ooops, sorry. I should watch where I'm go--Hey. You're wearing a paper bag!
Paper Bag: [act]rustles as DMG nods head[/act]
Angina: :D Where can I get one of those!?!?
[act]is dragged into room by Zarak[/act]
Fir: Wow! Is that a real crystal ball? Lemme ask something. [act]pokes around[/act]
Zarak: [act]looks over shoulder and reads[/act] 'Is my date a know-it-' HEY!
Fir: ~:| Well, I was just testing its accuracy. Here, have some chocca [act]grabs some[/act] and be glad you aren't in one of them paper bags like Ari's and Deb's dates! [act]notices metal cabinets and do not touch sign[/act]
Zarak: Wish I could put you in a paper bag... [act]follows gaze[/act] Hey! Is that Jak? JAK! WHAT ARE THOSE MACHINES?
Fir: [act]facepalms and attempts to hide behind mug of chocca as heads turn to stare at her date[/act]
Deb: I know where you can get one :P
EI: He doesn't need a paper body bag, he looks fine just the way she...I mean he is.
Gevan: [act] is looking around wondering what all the machinery is for[/act] I wonder where Garth is?
Deb: [act] overhears comment.[/act] Oh no you don't! [act]Storms toward Gevan.[/act] you are NOT to tell Garth about our beforetime machines. Last thing I need is him in here trying to pull them all apart.
Deb: [act]Pats his arm[/act] Its ok, here come and try a cookie.
edited on new info. Thanks Sionainn
(Deb -- I'm not actually in the lounge, only Angina is because he snuck away)
Angina: [act]follows after Deb[/act] You really know where I can get a paper bag? :D Well I must admit that a change of clothes would be better but maybe both would be good since I could easily avoid my date and not get laughed at for wearking girls clothes.
Zarak: [act]pops up behind Angina[/act] Are you wearing a skirt Angina? |:|
Angina: Oh no ~:|
Zarak: Haha :D Just you wait until the rest of the guilds hear about this. I wonder if the tecknoquilders have gotten those picture machines worked out yet! :D
Ari: Wow, people are practically bouncing off the walls...maybe we should have cleaned more of that great white taint off the walls in the Ballroom?
Deb: I don't think the taint is dangerous. We've been exploring these caves for years, and we're all perfectly normal. [act]Turning to Gevan[/act] Cookie?
AMD: That's what you think....
Ari: ":( Oh...Go eat some pie.
AMD: There's pie here!?
Deb: No. Just cookies and chocca. Cookie?
AMD: [act]possibly looking at Ari....it's hard to tell under the bag[/act] Still cant eat, and if you suggest osmosis again, I'll flail at you with my sharp paper edges.
Ari: o_O You know, that has to be the strangest threat I've ever heard....
Gevan: Can I have my cookie now?
