Jack leaned back in his chair, frowning at his computer. He suddenly didn't feel like he was in the mood for video games. He quickly looked at the chat, shaking his head at all the idiots, and quickly responded to the chat.

abscondingHazard [AH] is an active chum!
AH: You guys are !#%$ useless, literally sitting here waiting for a !#%$ game you couldn't be bothered to buy.
AH: I was pretty psyched about not playing this game, and now...
AH: Some !#%$ online RPG !#%$ with gay elves and whatever, I dont gvie a !#%$.
abscondingHazard's [AH's]
head is now in his computer!

Glass shards and sparks flew from the computer screen as Jack struggled to get free from the hand that was shoving his face into the computer. Jack suddenly stood up, kicking his chair back into the person behind him, finally breaking free. Jack then quickly whipped around, slashing the assailant's throat.

Jack held his face, feeling around for something to clean himself up. He wiped his face with a shirt off of the floor, pulling glass pieces out as he looked at his broken screen. The screen was trashed. Not that it mattered too much, he could easily replace the screen. Jack turned to look at the girl who had attacked him. She wasn't that old, probably lured here by some ass from that game. Whatever, didn't matter much now. He dropped the shirt over her face, and then captchalogued her body, making a mental note to dispose of it later.

Jack walked over to a mirror, and took note of the burns on his face from the screen. He waited a few moments, and walked over to one of the bottles of booze he picked up, dumping some on another shirt and dabbing it on his face while he also drank from the bottle. He felt his skin slowly start to heal over itself, and figured his face would be better in a few hours.

The joys of being a mutant freak.

Jack put the bottle down, and picked up a phone.

Shammy was simply sitting there, her hand placed quizzically over her chin as she stared at the chat window, as if that would somehow help her come up with a solution.

Fortunately, it was at that moment that another window popped up.

Ali found the girl interesting. She hadn't really talked to many people outside her friends before so talking to someone who did not really seem to get what they were saying was a new experience. That just means that there are loads of cool things she can show her! Making friends is great.

Also she really wants to replay HH7.

Spoiler: click to show
CO: but i guess its cool to get to see you
TC: yeah hopefully i can eventually see you too!
CO: it looks like i have all these options and menus
TC: oh cool
TC: what do they do?
CO: but i cant read all this hirogana
TC: oh
TC: well maybe just click around and see what works
TC: my mother says most the time fixing computers just ends up being messing around until things work
CO: oh alright ill just
CO: i guess i can place these big things
TC: ok
TC: wait
CO: ?
TC: placing big things
TC: im suddenly not so sure this is a good idea
TC: oh god whats that
CO: thats a 配布行列 i guess?
TC: that
TC: ill assume that means big clunky thing
CO: probably!
TC: does it do anything?
TC: i mean
TC: i guess i could just try and
TC: touch it myself but
CO: um im looking at the manual
CO: i think you have to take the lid off
TC: theres a lid?
TC: oh yeah
CO: but im not sure what happens after that
TC: i guess that kind of looks like a lid
CO: im just going to drop the rest of these things around your house
TC: ok i tried but that lid aint going nowhere
CO: hmm clicking on it isnt really doing anything let me just
TC: oh god
CO: yeah that did it
CO: oh i think its glitching now theres this weird ball floating around
TC: no i see that
TC: ok so i was right
TC: my house is haunted
CO: oh you do? weird maybe its a chir batti
TC: a what
TC: i mean yes!
TC: of course
CO: like
CO: a ghost light thing
TC: yeah thats what id call a ghost light thing
TC: now that i look closer though its missing half
TC: thats weird
TC: maybe thats what the goal of the game is, find the other half?
CO: yeah i see it too thats why i thought it was glitching
CO: maybe you need to build a new half
CO: with the rest of this stuff
TC: that makes sense
TC: wait rest of what stuff
CO: yeah the big stuff i placed around your house
CO: i put it all near your room so you can get there fast
TC: oh ok
TC: well
TC: thanks i guess!
TC: ok i looked at the other stuff
TC: im not really sure what any of it does
CO: oh wait i think you have to use
CO: this thing?
TC: oh god
TC: oh
CO: its smaller than i expected
TC: thats not a giant machine
TC: thats good
CO: hey whats that timer on the metal thing the half sphere came from
TC: oh maybe thats a time limit for the game or something?
CO: its kind of a low number dont you think?
TC: maybe the halfball just disappears at the end i guess
CO: thats only a few minutes
TC: oh shoot youre right
TC: well one sec
TC: okay i think i found a slot for the card in one of the machines
TC: and i guess its doing something now?
CO: oh whats it doing?
TC: i think it made some kind of
TC: weird can thing
TC: maybe i use it on the halfball?
CO: sounds like a plan
TC: ok no
TC: the halfball very obviously wants no business with it
CO: maybe thats what you need to
CO: put something in the ball?
TC: maybe
TC: im going to try this can thing with the other machines though
CO: oh okay
TC: ok i got a watering can now i guess
TC: i saw my brother in the hallway too though and he was doing stuff like this too it looks like
TC: i think i might ask him about this
CO: alright is he good at videogames?
CO: cause that might be a good idea
TC: oh yeah hes the best
CO: i dont play them often
CO: alright see you in a bit i guess!
TC: probably shouldve asked him sooner honestly
TC: alright cool see you!

"Perhaps if I...no, no then that would, but then it'd just, I don't know...Hmm"

A Young boy sat alone at a table, starring at a small, outdated laptop. He was currently locked in a battle of wits (read: Avian Tactics, 2000 Edition) with an "associate" of his. Yes, that's it, maybe he thinks as he sends his Peaclock to attack his rival's Pelidan. Nothing will go wrong with this move, nothing. That's what he assured himself at least while he emailed his move out. Play by email, what a new and interesting concept, he mused.

This lad's name is Rhis Cardor. Mentioned by well, no one, he is spending the summer living in his Uncle's RV in the middle of the woods. His uncle isn't actually here right now, although he never really is. He's gotten pretty use to being left all alone for extended periods of time. Sometimes for an entire month. His uncle was at least kind enough to leave him a special video game before he left. He never really said /what/ it was, just told him that it was something special. Now Rhis is just, mucking around until the game finished installing. You even had a stint where you did an imaginary drug bust with your pet python Crime Lord H Two. You can't prove anything he said. But hah, you could prove it all with your 3D Glasses X-Ray Laser Specs. And so another South American farm was liberated from the hands of the the armless drug lord.

brrr bee boo bop

Oh hey, that sounds means your uncle's gift has finished installing. That was some pretty good time, especially since you started it 3 weeks ago. That extra Bop there also means your associate has emailed you back with his counter move. I'm sure he never could have anticipated your specticle of flocking wit! ... Son of a, darn it you quietly say to no one as you watch his Pelidan simply wreck not only your Peaclock, but also your Sparrowmancer. That unit is OP, it really needs a patch 12 years ago. Well anyway, let's see what this game even is!

....once the game stops freezing up at least. Ah well, might as well connect to this address you got with the game. 815sburb.tfr112.org, or something....

Connection....complete..? you can't tell, the window froze up. Gosh darn it. Oh wait, there it goes, maybe, perhaps, not really.

-- solitaryHighlander [SH] began messaging audaciousPrizefighter [AP] --

SH: Well, it's about bloody time!
AP: Yeah, I'm so close to playing and I'm STILL waiting.
SH: Och, sorry, boyo. I mean ta say that I finally see you.
SH: Although I'll be damned if the prospect of this game kickin' off fer you slowpokes
SH: doesn't get my whiskers up.
SH: I guess ye weren't all talk!
AP: Ah, I'm pretty excited. Although these other guys are just bumbling along.
SH: Tell me abou' et.
SH: 's a bloody fine head on the wall there.
AP: Yeah, that was a fun one. My ears may have been bleeding but he couldn't handle the ol' one two
SH: Ahahahaha, I'll bet not! Looks like a damn fine hunt.
SH: I regret that I've not seen the like since I've been here.
SH: Not that I regret many things, mind ye.
AP: I heard there are bigger ones somewhere. Like waaaaay bigger. Hope I meet one of them someday. Meet them and beat them.
SH: Och, definitely. This game's s'posed te have a lot o' crazy stuff runnin' about.
AP: Yeah, its going to have some sickass monsters right?
SH: Absolutely. I've no' made much progress since tha last time we spoke, but these damned horsemen keep talkin' up a storm about all kinds o' crazy things out there in the wilderness.
SH: Got my blood fit to boilin', it does!
AP: Oh, so you're already playing? How awesome IS it anyway?
SH: Och, laddie, it's beyond description. I told ye about tha weird creatures before.
SH: I dunnae know what ye'll run into out there but
SH: the horsemen I told ye aboot have been right bloody excited since I left the castle.
SH: Well, were right bloody excited after I beat some sense into a few of 'em.
SH: Ha! That was quite a show.
SH: Apparently there's some kinda war brewin' out in this misty forest.
AP: Those dudes sound like my kinda guys.
SH: Haha, it'll be nice having some lads and lassies around ta scope this place out with.
SH: The horselads have been shoutin' aboot how we need to get out and wage war.
AP: I think some of them are connecting as we speak. I'm so HYPED, man.
SH: Och, !#%$, lad, it feels right contagious, it does. I just cannae wait to get out there.
SH: I've been holdin' back a little waitin' for ye all to show up.
SH: But it's been so hard.
SH: Horse lads say we have to go fight and keep yellin' at me.
AP: Haha, those guys seem like CRAZY fun.
SH: Granted, like any sensible man, they calm down when we get to drinking, but I dunnae know if I can hold 'em back much longer.
SH: Ah, hell yes they are. I think we've fought every night since I've gotten here.
AP: Man, don't drink it all. Save some for me, bro.
SH: Och, there'll be plenty, laddie
AP: Wait, !#%$.
SH: the stores here are pretty sizeable.
SH: What is it, lad?
AP: I think I just heard something crash.
SH: Och, ordinarily I'd blame it on the missus, but it occurs to me that there ain't no lassie in yer house as I recall.
SH: Maybe ye ought ta go check.
AP: Oh, just looked out my window.
AP: It's Ol' Charlie again.
AP: I took his tentacle, but I guess hes back for more.
SH: Guess ye cannae keep a good hunt down, eh laddie?
AP: Ahaha, right? Anyway, I'm going to go handle this fella.
SH: Sounds like it'll be a good preview for tha show to come!
SH: Alrigh', but ye hurry back now.
SH: After all, sounds like this party is kickin' off
AP: I hope. Then when I get back, I'll probably connect and we can chill.
SH: ye wouldnae wanna miss it.
SH: Sounds great!
AP: Later, man.

He grabbed his trusty bat. This one was going down this time. He glanced out the window again. It appeared that somehow, he was able to simultaneously get past the defensive runes, the sonic wall, and was now working on the iron gate. I always wondered how he slipped by the first two so easily but always had problems with the fence. The beast let out a painful screech and he ran to the door, his ears bleeding again. Monkeys be damned, I can at least take on this thing. As he approached it, the writhing mass blasted him back with its raw psychic power and screeched again. "Is that THE BEST YOU'VE GOT?" He yelled out at it. Ol' Charlie flailed about ramming one of its beaks against the fence, the nub where one of its larger tentacles used to be healed and scarred over. The young hunter rushed towards his foe and took a wide swing with his back, cracking it across the face it was using to lead its charge on the mansion's defenses. The small horrorterror loomed over him and tried to crush Alex beneath its beak but he jumped out of the way. He then smashed one of its many eyes in with the bat, getting splattered by strangely colored blood. He didn't care, this was the thing he lived for.

The thrill of the hunt.

He ran out into the jungle, hoping it would give chase. It was too angry about the eye, the tentacle, and just being hit to focus on the mansion and went after him. Alex had been expecting this and he was ready. It was surprisingly agile for a mass of alien flesh so it was catching up fairly quickly. They ran past tree and rock and beast, the child leading the way just like he wanted to happen. He smacked animals out of his way just so he would not be slowed down because if he stopped for even a second Charlie would get him. Deep in the jungle a trap had been set in preparation of this. The lumbering creature tripped a wire trap hidden under the foliage and a large, strangely shaped rock with even stranger carvings in it dropped upon the beast. After that, the eldritch thing did not move. Alex dragged it back to his home using a carrying device he had left in the jungle by his trap. He dumped the beast in his living room and returned upstairs only to find his window open and some things pulled out from under his bed. Alex saw his things messed with and tiny primate paw prints on the floor and flushed red with anger and embarrassment. Though there was no one around, he hated the idea of someone finding out he owned a cookbook and knitting supplies. That's not the kind of things a MANLY HUNTER likes. He's just holding them for someone, that's all. He closed the window and got back to his computer desk.

He's back and slower than ever.

It was a dark and stormy night...

Rain fell upon the window like a million bullets from a crossfire raining down on glass, a symphony of succulently timed maelstrom keeping beat to the pulse of life like a grand conductor, every moment carefully timed to flow seamlessly from the last and to the next. The girl twirled the lollipop inside her mouth as she gently sucked at it, a hardboiled expression on her face as she peered into the foreboding sky above.

"I've got a bad feeling about this." She said to nobody in particular, glancing down at the watch in her hand. 14 minutes 57 seconds. 14 minutes 58 seconds. 14 minutes 59 seconds. 15 minutes. That's how long had past since her informat, codename Sister, dropped off her new game before buggering off to a quiet sleep.

A clash of thunder, the surprise beat of a drum in a stringed orchaestra. Perhaps the rest would not be as peaceful as she anticipated. 15 minutes 10 seconds.

She had taken the time earlier to prepare for the awaiting trials. Chips, for consumption. Beverage, for stamina. But most certainly not a plushie, for luck.

Speaking of luck, connection was finally established. The memo of OMEM. sounds like an Area 51 institution. Or maybe a secret government amnesia project. Perhaps a senility prevention drug.

But with the ability to talk, she have a simple "hello" to the OMEM, taking a moment to dramatically push up her hat as she did so. Her name is HEATHER MILES. And her story is only just beginning...

A while later some entirely uninteresting things would happen that will most certainly not be gotten to later and Heather did connect-y things. This was most certainly not done out of being tired and not having much to say.

Have a log.

TS: Hello.
EV: Oh, hello.
EV: Are you this server player thing?
TS: *The detective nods*
TS: That's correct.
EV: Awesome! Then you can do the, thing, which starts this, I guess.
TS: Acknowledged. I shall insert the disk at this moment.
TS: The disk is being inserted.
TS: It's in.
EV: ... So now what?
TS: I think you insert the other disk.
TS: I think?
TS: Then we wait for installation.
EV: Erm.
EV: I did that already! For sure, I'm just, doing this thing, waiting for a server player now, that means I did it, right? Right.
TS: Oh, okay.
TS: Then we just wait for it to install.
EV: Okay, it should be installed now.
TS: Yep! It just finished as you said that.
TS: I see...a room.
EV: Okay, cool. Am I supposed to see one too?

EV: Let me tell you.

EV: That's weird, it felt like something just kind of shoved me just now.
TS: How bizarre. Hm.
-- taterSalad [TS] attempts to spin propellor cap man's propellor cap. --
EV: And now my hat's propellor is spinning for no reason.
EV: This is kind of weird.
EV: Is this part of the game or something?
EV: Does it haunt your house?
TS: Hm.
TS: I think I have an idea to postulate forward. I need one last test to confirm, however.
-- taterSalad [TS] chucks some random thing in the room at EV. --
EV: Oh god, and now there is a flying frying pan.
TS: ...
EV: Yeah, I'm pretty sure this thing's haunted.
TS: I believe that this game allows the server player to interact with the room of the client player.
TS: Fascinating.
TS: ...
TS: Apologies for the frying pan.
EV: Wait, really?
TS: Well, I did just chuck a frying pan at you when you said that.
TS: After I had spun your propellor cap.
EV: Oh wow.
TS: So it is either that or this game gives me access to the world of spirits.
TS: And I am mind controlling a ghost.
EV: So you can see me? And move my stuff? Holy crap, this is awesome.
EV: I was right, we really ARE breaking boundaries we didn't even know existed.
-- taterSalad [TS] puts the frying pan back where it was. --
TS: It's puzzling, though.
EV: How's that?
TS: How does it accomplish this?
EV: Uhhh...
TS: By what force am I causing these objects to be strewn about?
TS: Why is your toliet broken?
EV: By the might of sheer GLORIOUS WILLPOWER!
EV: And
EV: my toilet's broken?
TS: I think so?
EV: Any idea what caused it?
TS: I am not sure.
TS: Hm. Perhaps I should test the weight limits of this program.
TS: Please hold while I find something suitable.

EV: And if that ghost has to RISE UP from making Casper look like a terrifying monster, then SO BE IT!
EV: Oh hey, a card.
EV: Is this from a trading card game or something?
EV: I mean, not that I'd know anything about those.
TS: I don't know. It let me deploy it, so I did.
TS: You probably stick it in one of the machines
TS: .
EV: Oh, I guess that makes sense.
EV: Yeah, I found one it fit in, and I got this... cylinder... thing, I guess?
EV: Any idea what it's for?
TS: Hm.
TS: It looks like it could fit in that other thing. On that...circle-y bit.
EV: Oh, yeah, that works.
EV: Now the cylinder has a funny shape.
EV: Is this game part of some weird art class or something?
TS: Maybe you are supposed to play the role of an art critic.
TS: Is that a class in the game?
TS: Art critic?
EV: Uh... maybe?
EV: I don't know. I'm no artist, but this thing looks kind of awkward.
TS: Perhaps you should give it a numerical rating?
EV: I'd say it deserves a six out of ten.
EV: It's unique, at least.
TS: I see.
TS: ...Did anything happen? A level up noise, perhaps? Experience bar?
EV: Nope.
TS: Dissapointing.
TS: Can it fit into any of the other machines?
EV: I guess I could try.
EV: Yeah, I found one that works, and now I have some... weird-colored plant pot, I guess.
TS: Hm.
EV: Oh, hold on, I think my sister needs to talk to me for a second.
TS: Okay.

-- taterSalad [TS] ceased pestering extremeVelocity [EV]. --

"What is it?" Hamilton asked, slightly anxiously, as he turned to his sister.

"Well, you got those machine things, too, right? So you started as well. I was thinking you could help me since you're so good at games!" Shammy replied cheerily.

Hamilton practically beamed with pride, "Of course I can help. How far even are you?" he asked.

"Great!" Shammy exclaimed, "I just got an item from the machine that took that...shiny...carved...can...thing."

"Ah, right." Hamilton replied, nodding his head, "The result of the shiny-carved-can-thing step." He was pretending as hard as he could that he knew exactly what he was talking about. "Well, I'm ages beyond that, of course, but I believe we'll have to do something with both our shiny-carved-can-things-results that'll test all the experience we've obtained from our sylladexes. It'll be a puzzle to boggle minds for centuries to come, I'm sure, but we can do it. So show yours to me, and I'll show you mine." he went on.

And with that, they stared at each other for a moment, waiting, and suddenly both pulled out their respective items, the plant pot and watering can, simultaneously.

And thus, they stared at the items.

And stared.

The intensity of their stares were mind-boggling.

"I got nothin'." Shammy finally admitted, seeming disappointed.

Hamilton frowned. "I dunno, maybe we should take them back to the machines in the hallway, see if there's more we can do." he offered. And so, they went and did that.

"Maybe if I just put it on this thing..." Hamilton thought aloud, as he placed his pot on the middle-most machine.

"And then maybe if I hang this above it!" Shammy cheered as she went reached up, holding the watering can by its handle, and then, who would've thought, water came out.

"Oh." they both uttered as the water made the plant grow.

And then POOF, they were gone.

After the fight he decided that he was tired of waiting and began hitting up that new guy that just joined the group.

Spoiler: click to show
-- audaciousPrizefighter [AP] began pestering retroSentinel [RS] --

AP: HEY! Whats up?
RS: Ah, oh. Hello sir.
AP: I saw you joined OMEM. You looking to connect?
RS: I, suppose? When I joined it just, froze up, on me.
AP: Have you tried restarting?
RS: Oh, this chat, just had a seizure, when I hit enter.
RS: I, have not.
RS: Because it take 10 hours to, boot this machine up.
RS: That's, hyperbol.
RS: It seems fine, now. Maybe.
RS: Kinda.
AP: Hm... that MIGHT be a problem. Here, how about I hook up with you and we'll see what happens.
RS: I'm fine with that, sure.
RS: Oh, I suppose I should ask, what this even is.
AP: Its sburb, dude.
RS: ...Bless you?
RS: Didn't actually see what this was, called. My uncle just gave it to me.
AP: I've heard its supposed to be this hyper-real simulation adventure thing.
AP: It just came out so I don't know much.
RS: I, see.
RS: Adventures are fun.
AP: Everything I've heard about it has got me HYPED.
AP: So, I'm just going to connect as your server player.
AP: That means you won't need to do much, just have the disk installed.
RS: Alright, I just finished
RS: that.
RS: That was, quite a freeze up.
AP: Well, I'm connecting RIGHT NOW.
RS: Hopefully my, old machine won't, ruin everything in the world.
RS: More Hyperbole.
RS: Oh, something is, happening.
RS: aaaah, lag spike.
RS: I see a message on screen at least
RS: "yo this dude is connecting"
AP: Okay, I have a thing called a 'viewport' up.
RS: to quote.
AP: I see this dude in a huge coat, standing near a computer.
AP: Doesn't seem adventurey, I can't control him.
RS: Maybe it's, click controlled?
RS: Written commands?
AP: I'm clicking on everything.
AP: It appears I can move most objects, I've knocked down nearly everything.
RS: oh dear
RS: I think, a mini tornado just ripped through, the room.
AP: Yeah, kinda like that.
AP: Still can't move this guy though.
RS: Didn't knock over, H2's cage at least. He's a bother to catch.
AP: Huh? You got some problem on your end?
RS: Yeah everything just, spontaniously fell over
AP: I bet I did that.
AP: Since that was probably what the connecting was for or whatever.
RS: Why is, the tv stuck in the toilet now?
RS: Oh, this is, your doing?
AP: I guess, man.
AP: Hey check outside.
AP: You see a bunch of big metal things?
RS: Yeah, I see them, out the window.
RS: Bit hard to see in the, snow though.
AP: That's all the stuff the game let me deploy. I think you need to do things with them.
RS: also I suppose I should be, somewhat distressed that you can do these things but,
RS: I was told something like this would happen.
RS: And I, see.
RS: Well, let me just, find my boots and I'll go out there.
AP: Yeah, I got the idea this game was going to do some crazy !#%$ too.
AP: Sorry about the snow. Didn't see any room in your place.
RS: Oh, it's fine.
RS: I kinda like the cold.
RS: Also I think you, threw my boots up on the bookshelf over there
AP: I'll... get them down.
RS: I'd appriciate that.
AP: There we go.
RS: Thank you, uh... you person.
AP: Man, just call me Alex.
RS: Alright then, Mr/Mrs/Ms Alex.
AP: MR. Alex.
AP: Also, have this card thing from the game.
AP: It looks important.
RS: My apologies and, I see. I'll hold onto it.
RS: ANyway, think you can, tidy up a bit? I don't know when my Uncle will be back.
AP: Uh... I'll try.
AP: Its approximately clean.
RS: Well I went out there and I saw a thing the card can fit inside. Can't really, bring the laptop with me.
RS: Then it made like,
RS: Some sort of pottery thing, but it looked like a funky hoop box, thing.
RS: can't describe it.
AP: Oh alright. I'm thinking I need to do something with the bigger metal thing.
AP: I just slammed a big thing into it and the top came off.
RS: There's a, wisp out there now.
RS: Hm actually, it looks kinda familar.
RS: But
RS: Not important.
AP: I think this is everything you need to get started.
AP: Just gotta be wary of that timer I guess?
RS: Oh I, didn't even notice that.
RS: Hm it's, kinda low. I suppose I should make haste.
RS: Alright I, found this, little note from my uncle inside the game case
RS: Has a list of, instructions I'm gonna sume are for, these silly things.
RS: Just
RS: Give me a moment to, decode his ciphers.
AP: I'll wait.
RS: Alright so, I guess we need to put something, inside that Wisp thing.
RS: I assume that's what it means, since it says "kernel thingy"
AP: Well, I just picked up a random object to feed it and it keeps zipping away.
AP: Like WOOSH and its gone.
RS: Gone is, not a word I'd like to hear but, sure.
RS: Hm...
RS: I have a, idea of sorts.
AP: Let's hear it.
RS: Think you can break open my Uncle's cabinet? The key to, H2's cage is in there.
RS: Just
RS: Mind the rifles.
AP: I think that did it.
RS: Wow there was, lots of amunition is there. I hope the vacuum will pick that up.
RS: Alright, found the key.
RS: If, H2 decides to swallow my head, think you can pick him up for me?
AP: I make no promises.
AP: But I'll try.
RS: Alright he's, not as heavy as I remember him. Give me a sec and I'll go, throw him in.
RS: Hopefully without the woosh.
AP: Did it work?
RS: Okay sorry, I kinda, slipped coming out. It seems to have, worked.
RS: The, wispy corn kernel thing, changed shape.
RS: Looks like a, snake head.
AP: That might be all you need to do with it.
RS: Although it's just kinda, sitting there now.
AP: Hey, what about that weird OBJECT you got a while back?
RS: The, hoopy box thing? I still got it.
RS: I noticed it had like, a lock on it.
AP: Yeah try throwing it at things.
AP: That seems to solve everything in this game.
RS: Well,
RS: Throwing wood and bullets at it, doesn't work.
RS: Hold on though, I have, an idea.
RS: There we go, this Fire Axe should, probably, break it open.
AP: Did it do anything?
RS: Ah!, hold a sec I think I see, my uncle coming home.
RS: I'll, talk to you in a sec.
AP: 'Ight.
RS: He may be, a bit confused by all this junk.
AP: Hahah, well, say I'm sorry.

He's back and slower than ever.

Shammy stood there vacantly for a moment, before recoiling in surprise. What just happened? Where'd Hamilton go?... Better question, where did the other half of the house go?!

She didn't have time to ponder either of these things, though, as her thoughts were quickly interrupted by a shrill scream. She had no idea where it was coming from, but it was definitely close enough to give her a headache, to say the least.

Trying her best to ignore the screaming, Shammy turned towards the hole that used to be half her house, and looked out to the area around her. The incredibly dry ground, the strange, shiny pink formations, and most jarring of all, the huge webs everywhere... What even is this place...?


Pulling her attention from the strange land, she tried looking around for her brother some more. He didn't seem to be anywhere in sight. Just before she was about to look downstairs, it came to her. That server player! Surely she'd still be there, and maybe she'd have some answers! Yes, Shammy could just calmly ask her about the situation, no need to panic, and everything will be perfectly fine.

Spoiler: click to show
-- trivialCelebration [TC] began pestering counterfeitOrigins [CO] --

TC: what the !#%$!
TC: where did half my house go?
TC: where did my brother go??
TC: and why is there screaming???
CO: oh youre back
TC: you could say that!
CO: im looking at the screen and...
CO: i dont see it anywhere
TC: and why is it so bright outside!
TC: where even am i!!
TC: and god that screaming is horrible!
CO: i guess the sun is bright because youre in this sandy place
TC: yeah but what even is this sandy place!
TC: and I still want to know where my brother went!!
TC: youre the server right shouldnt it say something?
CO: im sorry i dont know ):
CO: oh
CO: oh god
TC: what?
TC: did you find something?
CO: i wish i didnt
TC: why?
TC: what is it??
CO: i think i found your brother
TC: oh sweet!
TC: where is he?
CO: i think hes dead
TC: what!!!
TC: thats not funny!
CO: theres someone who got torn in half
TC: what the !#%$!
TC: where??
CO: i cant even look at the screen
CO: its downstairs
TC: ok one second
CO: ...

Shammy stepped away from her computer, making her way down the hallway. She noticed that the screaming had stopped, but considering what she'd been told, that wasn't exactly calming. On her way to the stairs, she quickly realized that her house kind of didn't have stairs anymore. Peaking over the edge, she quickly determined she could swing down to the next floor. She didn't see anything, but noticed that she did still have the stairway down to her mom's laboratory. She hesitated for a moment, dreading what she might find down there, but eventually made her way down anyway.

Red. Red is what she found.

The Mysterious Engineer noticed Shammy come down, and quickly tried to face away its... bad side. Slowly, and with difficulty, the Mysterious Engineer began talking in a strange way, making an even stranger gurgling noise as it did so. "What's driven your curious intramind to... come to my laboratorium? " it asked, trying its best to hold its balance as it scooped up some intestines with its only arm, stuffing them away.

A pause.

Finally working up the will, Shammy responded with "I just... came down to check on you."

The Mysterious Engineer let out what one could assume was an attempt at a laugh, but sounded more like it was attempting to hock a loogie. "I am... I will be fine. You should just skipicate back up to your room, I'm working on an exasecret project." it replied, scrambling to push buttons on a nearby machine as the Mysterious Engineer leaned against the wall.

"I... alright." was all Shammy could manage to say before turning away and making her way back up. After a bit of climbing, she eventually made her way back to her computer.

Spoiler: click to show
TC: ok that was
TC: thats brother my not...
TC: that was my mom
TC: she said shell be ok though!
CO: oh wow sorry i couldnt tell because
TC: and that i should
CO: well
CO: they were everywhere
TC: never go down there for a long time
TC: i think
CO: im glad theyre alright though
TC: so whats this new like place in im
TC: new place im in like
TC: sorry
TC: can you see much of it?
CO: not really, just slightly around your halfhouse
TC: hm ok
TC: wait
TC: is that the dairy queen?
TC: or
TC: half the dairy queen i guess
CO: oh wow are there any people in it?
TC: hold on ill go look
CO: oh hey, i can interact with it

Making her way to the half-Dairy Queen just behind her half-house, Shammy quickly found that it was mostly empty. Mostly. There was one guy sitting at a table, eating some ice cream, and seeming awfully content for the whole situation. "Um... hello?" she said, a bit confused.

Just now noticing that Shammy had come in, the man suddenly perked up with a smile, turning towards her. "Yo, man, I thought everyone was gone! They all ran away because of some crazy meteors or something, but that !#%$ was hot, yo. Needed to get my ice cream on, y'know? Could never live without it, so hey, if the meteors killed me, then hey, I'd never want to die any other way than with some ice cream in my hands, and in more importantly, in my belly. But hey, enough about that, you want some ice cream?" he explained all at once, finally holding out an ice cream cone to Shammy.

In response, Shammy simply stared. And stared. This man was strange, and taking sweets from strangers, especially strange strangers, was never a good idea. On the other hand, she never did get anything to eat this morning...

"Thanks!" she said happily, taking the cone and taking a lick. "By the way, do you know where we are? Or what happened? And have you seen a cool guy wearing a backwards propeller cap around?" she asked, thinking that maybe, just maybe, she could finally get some answers.

To this, the man laughed. And... laughed. And laughed some more. That must've been the funniest damn joke she ever told. A full minute later, the man finally managed to calm himself down, replying with "Haha, yeah, I have no idea about any of those things you said. All I know is ice cream. Y'know? Because I don't. Only thing I've seen is those crazy pink dudes out there."

"Erm... alright" Shammy said a bit awkwardly, "thanks anyways. Well, I should be off for now, maybe I'll talk to you later!"

Starting to make her way back, Shammy noticed these "pink dudes" the man described. They weren't so much "dudes" as "creatures" by the looks of things. They mostly hung around those pink formations, and some of them even seemed to be flying, albeit not very high. Thinking better of confronting them (especially in this heat), Shammy made her way back to her computer again, stuffing her ice cream in her pants for later.

Spoiler: click to show
TC: ok there was some guy in there that seemed awfully relaxed for this whole situation but
TC: i also got a better look outside
TC: and there are some really weird looking pink things out there
TC: they dont look mean but
TC: i dunno
TC: kinda look like bugs i guess
CO: oh huh...
CO: im just wondering what were supposed to do now
TC: that is a very good question!
TC: oh !#%$
CO: woah whats that thing
TC: a spiderghost i guess
CO: maybe its an enemy?
TC: its pretty nice actually apparently!
TC: it says
TC: that we should weave many things i guess
TC: weave up to the sky to continue on
CO: hm well im looking at these options i have
TC: weave friendships with prey to help them rather than eat them
CO: i guess new ones opened but i still cant read anything
TC: which i have no idea what it means by prey but sure
TC: do i have to help the ice cream?
TC: oh you have more options now?
CO: ok lets see it seems i can change the house
CO: but it costs me gushers
TC: gushers?
CO: like the fruit snack
CO: that isnt nearly as good a snack as pocky is
TC: ummmm
TC: yes!
TC: is that like ice cream?
TC: because we still have plenty of that
TC: building things with ice cream might be weird though
CO: no its not i think the gushers are like
TC: especially with how hot this place is
CO: money
TC: oh
CO: like when i add stuff to the wall the number goes down
CO: and when i delete stuff the number goes up
TC: huh okay
TC: spiderghost says i should bare my fangs at the incoming competitors for that
TC: but
TC: i dont really have fangs
CO: i think he just means to kick lots of butt
TC: oh
CO: like extremely adequate soldier rax!
TC: im not fighter a though much...
CO: im sure youll get some sort of super special power or something
CO: have you tried shooting lightning out your hands
TC: ok
TC: no i cant shoot lightning
CO: i bet youll find out when you need it most
CO: the hero always does!
TC: spiderghost says no weapon works better than your own spinneret
TC: i have no idea what that means
TC: but
TC: i guess my ponytail-drill spins
TC: thats like a spinneret right
TC: oh !#%$
CO: i didnt know your ponytail was a drill?
TC: there might be more spiders
TC: and they dont appear to be friendly ghosts
TC: one sec
TC: or
TC: many secs
CO: oh okay

-- counterfeitOrigins [CO] ceased pestering trivialCelebration [TC] --

Indeed, looking towards the edge of her half-house, Shammy could see some spider-creatures crawling up. They were transparent, but... not like her friendly spiderghost. They were shiny, more like... glass.

Looking up to the spiderghost, she noticed it was now hissing and baring its own fangs. Not quite sure if she was ready for what was to come, Shammy took the drill off her hair, powering it up. "Please come help me soon, Hammy..." she muttered before holding the now-spinning drill up towards the oncoming abominations. Here went everything.

Jack walked out of the room in the cathedral, looking outside to see the light glow of what he assumed to be the sun setting. It hit the stained glass windows just right, and decorated the wall with a variety of colors and patterns. Jack spaced out, watching the window light up brighter occasionally. Suddenly, he snapped to his senses, realizing that the sun had set some time ago and walked outside, looking to the horizon.

The city was burning, casting a heavy orange glow on the smoke billowing into the air. Meteors were cutting through the smoke and smashing into buildings, the ground, into the water. Jack looked up, and jumped out of the way in time to avoid getting crushed by one, watching it bounce off the ground and into the bar he was in a few hours ago. Jack started running, easily jumping over barricades that had been put up and leapt over a fence in one jump, landing on a dumpster and hopping up to a fire escape. He got up to the top of the building, and started running across the rooftops, leaping over the huge gaps inbetween the buildings.

Jack paused at the last roof, looking down at the long drop ahead of him. He looked behind him, seeing that some of the buildings had caught fire, and one had collapsed. He looked down again, watching the people scramble in a panic, some of them getting caught in the meteors crashing to the ground, or getting set on fire, or even getting trampled by the crowd. He stood there for a few more seconds, panning the crowd, before locating a black hat moving through the crowd, calmly heading towards the only remaining bridge in the city that hadn't collapsed due to damage from falling rocks. The person under the hat couldn't be seen from this height, but they continued to the bridge, and went under it, as if they were waiting for someone.

Jack looked down, watching as the windows of the building he was on explode, showering glass down onto the crowd of people. Fire erupted out of the windows, and the building slowly started to shift. Jack sighed, backed up, and then jumped off of the building. People screamed and moved out of the way as he landed on the ground from 7 stories up, on all fours. He stood up, brushing ash off his hoodie, and then climbed up onto the crowd and made his way over to the bridge, as the building collapsed behind him.

Jack walked under the bridge, noting all the cars that were stopped, and people were climbing out of them to escape the city. He walked over to his mentor, who was looking across the water. Jack avoided looking at the horrible water, leaning against the bridge support.

Jack stood with his mentor for a few more seconds, trying to actually get a good look at his face. He then turned away, and started making his way back to the cathedral. Jack's mentor watched him walk away, then turned back to the water.

"Wh- WOAH." Hamilton shouted, stopping himself just short of falling out of what was now half of his house into the vast ocean below. "Where am I?!" he shouted to no one in particular.


It was at that moment that Hamilton's thoughts were interrupted by an incredibly loud scream. It was deafening, but more than that, it just... wouldn't... stop, ongoing for what felt like way too long.

After a few moments, Hamilton was finally able to judge that it was coming from below, and took it upon himself to go downstairs (oh, how thankful he was that he still had stairs) to investigate. Unfortunately, once he was down a level, he realized it was even lower still. After a bit of hesitation, he went over to the edge of the half-house, slowly and carefully hanging down to peak under. What he saw was... was...

Enough to make him faint.

Spoiler: click to show
??: WAKE UP, sleepy head!

With that, Hamilton jolted awake. His vision was quickly assaulted with a barrage of purple, but more pressing than that was the girl sitting atop his chest.

EV: Wh
EV: What's going on?
??: Oh hey, you actually got up this time.
EV: Who
EV: Why

EV: I-I, of course, I mean, it's only natural I'd wake up, I mean, I-I just, erm.

EV: Oh.
EV: Yeah, that would be pretty weird.
EV: Hahaha.
EV: So what even is it like here? Aside from purple?
??: Violent. And kind of weird since people started dressing like spiders.
EV: That... sounds horrible.
??: That's why I wanted someone else to wake up!
??: I've been kind of scared...
??: .///.
EV: Yeah, I would be too...
EV: Er, I mean.
EV: I'll be sure to protect you from all the violence and stuff!
??: Oh thank you!
??: Heehee, a prince protecting a princess. Its just like a fairytale!
EV: No problem! It isn't any issue for a cool guy like me, let me tell you!
EV: Exactly!
EV: So what do you even usually do around here?
??: Well, normally I'm in my tower but I get bored alot so I'll just fly to the other towers.
??: Mostly this one, since its so close.
??: I don't go on the streets because the Dersites are pretty violent people.
EV: Alright, well, we're still safe up in these towers, right?
??: Yes.
EV: Okay, that's good.
EV: N-not that I'm scared or anything! Just, good that you're safe, and good my tower's so close, all the better to protect you! Like it was meant to be!
??: Yeah, I'm surprised how brave you are!
??: Most people would be scared of knife weilding shadows when they aren't armed...
??: But not you, my prince!
EV: Hahaha... yeah...
EV: That's... that's certainly not anything... for a cool guy like me.
??: Come on, we should go for a walk right now! I've been itching to get out, and nows the perfect chance!
EV: Erm...
EV: Y-yes, sounds like a... like a great idea!

With that, Hamilton quickly jolted awake once again. Oh, how thankful he was for that. Things were about to get really awkward, really quickly. As he began to lift his arm to get up, though, he realized it was met with a bit of resistance, being stuck. As he surveyed his situation, he wasn't sure what he was more scared of: the slightly-transparent web that he was stuck to, or the blood it was drenched in that he was soaking in.

Either way, he managed to faint again in record time.

What a cool guy.

Jack started climbing another building, thinking about what his mentor told him. Or rather, what he refused to tell him. His mentor wasn't a very secretive person. He'd straight out tell him anything he wanted to know usually. He even came forward with being an 'alien' the first time they met. Of course, Jack was very young when that happened. He didn't remember it too well either.

He didn't remember a lot of things too well. A lot of his past was a mystery. He wasn't an amnesiac or anything lame like that. No, he just couldn't remember anything before...Bluh. He didn't want to think about that right now. He had work to do. Jack reached the top of the building, equipping his claws. If the world was going to end, there was one last thing he needed to do. He needed to get revenge on the people who were constantly trying to kill him. The people who had put a hit out on him three years ago. He stood in front of a penthouse suite that was situated on top of this building. The glass doors reflected the deep orange sky, and he could see people scrambling around inside.

He equipped the girl's body, the body he neglected give to Jack once he saw the city on fire. He threw it, shattering the glass doors as it tumbled over a couch and landed in front of a chair, where the leader of the city's mob sat. Several goons turned to watch Jack walk through the broken door, raising their weapons.

AH: recognize her?
MB: I should. You always recognize family. You dare come here, throwing around the body of my own daughter?
AH: surprise !#%$, shouldn't have sent her to kill me
MB: No matter, she was a drugged up useless whore anyway. Another damned soul taken away by our local freak.
MB: Did I strike a nerve?
MB: Did the little freak suddenly grow a pair? What do you think you are going to do about it?
MB: Get lost, mutant, we're busy.
MB: Boys, take care of this nuisance once and for all.

Jack ducked as one of the grunts fired his gun, which hit the second grunt. The third goon took cover, but the thin wall he hid behind didn't protect him at all as Jack plunged his claws through the wall, into his skull. Jack leapt over the wall, grabbed the goon's gun, and used his body as cover as he unloaded a full clip into the remaining goon's body.

He then turned to the mob boss, who was trying to run away. He picked up the first grunt's gun, and shot him in the leg. Then he shot him in the other leg. Completely crippled, the boss tried to pull himself away from Jack, dragging himself over the glass from the door, and outside. Jack calmly followed him, walking alongside him.

AH: You know, Maury
AH: what you do, you know

MB: hgg...please....uf....
AH: yeah, i know, we both steal from people
AH: and believe me when i say, i always admired the houses you lived in, while i only got to live in !#%$ slums because you were always trying to kill me

MB: augh....oh god...i.....i'm sorry.....please
AH: no, Maury, you aren't sorry.

Jack kneeled down next to Maury as he dragged himself towards the building's railing, having nowhere else to go. He grabbed at the railing with his bloody hands, barely able to breathe having cut his throat on the glass he dragged himself through, whimpering and trying his hardest to escape Jack.
Spoiler: click to show
AH: you never were sorry
AH: not when you hired those hitmen to kill SS's gang
AH: and not when you tried to personally kill me multiple times

MB: it...huuurkkk....was just business.....
AH: yeah
AH: just business

Jack shoved his claws into Maury's back, listening to him scream as he picked him up over his head. He turned to face the railing, and threw Maury down the 20 stories.

Spoiler: click to show
AH: nothing personal.

Jack stood on top of the roof for a few more minutes, before he realized that he still had things he needed to do. Even if the world was burning around him, his mentor demanded that he play this game no matter what. And that was what he was going to do. Jack located his home, and started making the trek back, starting with the climb down the building.

Hamilton woke up (?) again, finding himself in a familiar situation.

Spoiler: click to show
??: Are you still there?
EV: Oh
EV: I guess I am.
??: We still going for that walk?
EV: guess we are.
-- The girl grabs his hand and begins walking down the stairs. --
??: Lets go!
EV: S-Sounds good!
-- The girl walks out the door with him. --
EV: Wow, this place is more vast than I thought.
??: Yeah, I don't know how big it really is.
EV: Huh, how long have you been around here?
??: I'm guessing I've been here just about...
??: Forever.
EV: Oh.
EV: Of course.
??: We'll have to try not to draw much attention.
EV: Yeah, good idea.
EV: I mean, not that it'd matter for a cool guy like me!
EV: But, we wouldn't want you getting hurt before I have time to react, or something.
??: I'm sure you could take twenty guys at once, at least.
??: But the princes and princesses of the moon are kind of celebrities here.
EV: Princes and princesses?
??: Yes, us that live in the towers.
EV: Oh, huh.
EV: You weren't kidding about the prince thing, then.
-- The girl walks down the dark alleys of Derse with Hamilton. --
??: I think there are about four of us on Derse.
EV: Oh, so there's two others? And they're still asleep, you said?
??: I think they are.
??: They've at least been asleep when I've been there.
??: Though I went to theirs the least.
EV: O-oh.
??: The dark city is rather nice, isn't it?
EV: Yeah, it really is beautiful.
EV: W-wait
EV: is someone there?
??: Where?
-- Hamilton looks towards a shady-looking Dersite in a black trenchcoat in the alleyway, beckoning the two kids. --
EV: Over there.
??: I see him now.
??: What do you think he wants :?
EV: I'm... not sure I want to know.
-- The Dersite proceeds to quickly flash open his trenchcoat. --
EV: oh
??: I think hes trying to sell us stuff.
EV: Yeah, I guess he is.
-- The girl looks at his wares. --
EV: Looks like some clothing... made out of silk, I guess.
EV: Wait, is that a... a...
-- Hamilton stares at a codpiece. --
??: We could use the clothing to disguise our selves better.
??: I mean, purple doesnt stick out that much but...
-- The girl looks over her friend. --
??: Yellow kind of does.
EV: ...
EV: OH! Yeah, of course.
-- The girl hands some boondollars to the Dersite. --
??: We'll each need some clothes.
-- The Dersite nods in approval, handing over some clothing. Shiftily looking around, being sure that no one else is there, he carefully hands the codpiece over to Hamilton, giving a wink. --
EV: I...
EV: Thanks...?
??: Oh maybe its a buy one get one free deal?
EV: I-I... I guess so.
-- The girl looks confusedly at what he gave him. What even is that? --
-- Hamilton just blushes and quickly puts it away. --
-- The girl throws on the cloak and puts the hood up. One might notice that the hood has a distinct spider like design to it with with spots representing eyes and the hood is cut like a spider mouth. --
-- Hamilton put on his own clothing, consisting of a shirt with an angry spider face on the chest, the sleeves coming to closed points, so as to look like spider legs. Less than convenient, but darn if they weren't STYLIN'. By Derse standards, anyways. --
-- Hamilton very purposely keeps the codpiece away, earning an odd stare from the Dersite. --
??: Thanks mister!
-- The girl waves to the salesman. --
-- The Dersite simply nods, a cheerful look on his face as he closes his trenchcoat and waddles along on his way. --
-- The girl looks at Hamilton's hands and giggles. --
EV: E-er... hehe, yeah, that sure is pretty silly!
EV: And, nothing else I got.
-- They continue walking. --
EV: Well, for the first guy we met, that one didn't seem so bad.
??: Yeah, that went way better than expected.
-- The girl picks up a newspaper lying on the ground and continues walking but not looking at it yet. --
EV: Yeah. Clearly he was just too intimidated by me to try anything.
-- The girl smiles. --
??: Of course.
EV: But, uh, yeah, you totally look great in that cloak, by the way!
??: Thanks.
??: Your outfit looks nice too.
EV: Th-thanks!
-- The girl walks with him silently but comfortably for a while --
??: Hey, I just wanted to say...
EV: Hm?
??: Thanks for coming with me.
EV: Oh, no problem!
??: Its so nice to get out of the tower.
??: I'm honestly pretty scared of the city.
??: But I also don't like being cooped up all day.
EV: Yeah, I can imagine.
??: Just promise me you won't leave, okay?
EV: I won't.
-- The girl smiles again. --
??: Thanks.

And with that, Hamilton woke up (for reals this time) again, to find himself in another familiar situation. As he turned towards what he was laying in, he quickly snapped his head back, closing his eyes shut tight. He tried his best to get up, albeit with some difficulty as he wrestled with the wet, sticky webbing. Finally managing to get on his feet, he opened his eyes again, nearly stumbling down from the shock of finding himself dangling precariously over the ocean that lay below. After regaining his balance, he slowly and carefully made his way back into his half-house.

It was then that he noticed something on the floor of his father's half-lab. It looked like... well, more blood. But it wasn't just that: it was smudged into specific shapes. No, letters. It was a message, literally written in his father's own blood.

"To my Masculine Descendant,

Do not be vexed over my current status, as I will subsist without issue. Your ethereal araneae companion is quite the abettor, so I'm sure your likeness will also be more than adequate in its survival. May we see each other again at a more felicitous time, my little neonate.

With due regard,
Thine Pseudo-Progenitor"

It took Hamilton a few minutes to even understand what he just read, but finally, he settled down, albeit slightly, as no matter what you say, having a note written in your own blood isn't exactly promising.

Not wanting to waste another moment, Hamilton climbed back up to the next story (with some difficulty, but he managed), then rushed up the stairs to his computer. At first, he tried contacting his server player, but got no answer. While he was contemplating what to do next, though, another message popped up, this time from someone he wasn't familiar with...

Ali watched her new friend on the screen as she scampered off. She's doing pretty good but it seems like there are a lot of spiders. I wonder if I can do anything, Ali thought. She clicked on things and dragged them at the spiders but nothing seemed to happen. She tried dropping bigger things on them and noticed they were disappearing and turning into gushers.

She immediately began to pester her client player's sibling.

CO: konichiwa
EV: Um
EV: Hello?
CO: im your sisters friend
EV: Oh, you've seen my sister?
EV: Is she okay?
CO: yes and yes!
CO: i was helping her fight spiders
EV: Awesome.
EV: Wait, spiders?
EV: That's slightly less awesome.
CO: yes they were made of glass
CO: super easy though
CO: like lv 1 monsters or something
EV: Okay, good.
CO: she said you could connect to me
EV: What?
EV: Oh, the server thing.
EV: Uh, I guess I could.
CO: arigato!
EV: What?
CO: it means thank you in japanese
EV: Oh, alright.
EV: No problem then, I guess.
EV: Okay, I think I'm connecting now.
EV: And...
EV: This sure is dark.
CO: sorry my room is dark
EV: I think I see you, though.
EV: No, wait, that's a toy.
CO: sorry youre probably zoomed in on one of my figurines or something
CO: btw those arent toys for the record!!!
EV: Er, right, sorry.
EV: Anyways, I guess I have stuff to deploy here, but...
EV: There's not really room to do so.
CO: try the hallway
CO: its really big
EV: Ah. Yeah, that would make sense, wouldn't it.
EV: Alright, that should be everything.
EV: And here's the card, I'll just give it straight to you.
CO: ok
EV: Or what I assume is you.
EV: It's still pretty dark.
EV: Oh yeah, and I guess I gotta just... bonk this thing over here.
EV: Whoops, that might've been connected to something.
CO: im sure its fine
EV: I hope so.
EV: Anyways, there's your... ghost thing. I'm still not entirely sure what that does.
EV: You got a whole one, though! That's an improvement. I think.
CO: oh yeah your sisters was half a sphere too
CO: it turned into a spider
EV: Oh, yeah...
EV: That thing...
CO: hmmm now what should i feed it
CO: i think this will work

She took the figurine off her shelf and ran into the hall to throw the toy figurine into the sphere. It turned into the head of a young girl with pigtails and bows in her hair. She then returned to her computer to find EV had been going on about something.

EV: The Godless Abomination that WATCHES ME FROM THE CORNER, always STARING with its LARGE ARRAY OF HORRIBLE EYES, waiting, PLOTTING...
EV: Oh, uh, yeah.
CO: my online friend sent it to me as a gift

CO: Wonderful Weapon Sailor Robin
EV: I... see.
CO: oh youve seen it?! =D
EV: Uh... sure!
CO: whats your favorite episode?
EV: Uh...
EV: The one where she, uh... dances. Yes.
EV: But yeah, do you know what to do with the card?
CO: oh that one is pretty good but i liked the one where she had to face the doppleganger of her self that was pretending to be her at school and being mean to her friends and the boy shes likes and then the doppleganger became buddies with the jerky popular kids and the real robins friends wouldnt speak to her anymore cause they thought she was the fake one but she wasnt. but then her friends saw how sad she was that they didnt believe her and gave her the benefit of the doubt because they trust her so much so she proved to them that it wasnt her but the clone got mad and revealed that it was really a monster that feeds on peoples anger sent by dread queen nihilia to get rid of her enemy and then she won the fight and everything was great and back to normal again
EV: Holy !#%$.
EV: I mean, uh... yeah! That one was great. So yeah, the card.
CO: oh um... i guess ill run off and do that stuff before we continue talking about it
CO: its fun to meet someone else whose seen it but i also want to get in the game

She ran back and forth between the machinery and her game as she continued to talk to TC's brother.

Spoiler: click to show
EV: Yeah, that'd definitely be a good idea.
CO: alright i got the sprite to eat my figurine
CO: itll be so sugoi being friends with the real sailor robin!
EV: Oh, yeah, I'm sure!
EV: Also, I had no idea you were a girl.
EV: I mean, no offense or anything, it was just, dark.
CO: oh yeah im sorry about that
CO: my bookcase is blocking the lightswtich
EV: Oh, it's no problem!
EV: But yeah, you look really... unique.
EV: In a cool way!
CO: oh thanks
CO: i was scared you would think my skin condition was weird
EV: Oh, is that what it is?
EV: Well, it looks cool regardless!
EV: It's not contagious or anything, is it?
CO: oh no i was born with it
EV: Oh, okay, that's good.
CO: so um ive got to go make the thing on the card one sec

She left him momentarily to finish the chain of events she needed to do in order to enter the game.

Spoiler: click to show
EV: I mean, not that you were born with it, but, I mean, it still looks cool, so, I mean, um.
EV: Yes!
EV: The card.
CO: ohgodohgodohgodohgod
CO: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
EV: What?
CO: its a bomb
EV: Oh
EV: Oh my.
EV: Erm...
CO: its about to

And suddenly Ali was blinded by a bright flash of light. She noticed her computer seemed to have turned off so she hit the button and walked away while it booted again. The building had no windows so she immediately headed toward the nearest door. She walked out side to find that the ground was green and felt like a water bed. She looked up at the sky to see that it was covered in massive thorny vines. It appeared to be night time or cloudy behind the blanket of foliage in the sky, she wasn't sure which. She looked around to notice more large lily pads and weeping willows everywhere. In the distance it looked like she saw small green people on tiny wooden boats. She glanced around and realized she didn't know how she was going to navigate the area.


He's back and slower than ever.

Hamilton just kind of sat there nervously. Was she dead? First taterSalad was nowhere to be seen, and now the second person he's met from this was already dead. Not exactly the best start.

Or was it the third? That girl from the dream... It certainly didn't feel like a dream, but...

Hamilton shook his head, now wasn't the time to think about that, he still needed to try contacting his sister.

-- extremeVelocity [EV] began pestering trivialCelebration [TC] --

EV: Hi sis!
TC: oh!
TC: yo bro!!
EV: Good, you are there!
EV: Probably should've tried this sooner.
TC: yes its great to see youre ok!
TC: i guess i didnt think to try this either with all thats been going on
TC: first losing you and mom is was there...
TC: ...
TC: its great to see youre ok!
EV: Yeah, same to you!
EV: Things have been pretty crazy.
TC: oh so you fought those spider-things too?
TC: mustve been tough you dont even have a weapon!
TC: i had my drill at least
TC: i mean not that thatd be any problem for you of course hehe
EV: Oh, uh... yeah!
EV: It was no issue.
EV: More than that, though, I met someone!
EV: It was... in my sleep, I guess.
TC: oh so you had a dream?
EV: Well... I don't think so.
EV: I don't know why, but it didn't seem like one.
EV: I mean, I guess dreams don't half the time, but still!
TC: its ok i believe you
TC: crazier stuff has happened already
TC: what was this not-dream place even like?
EV: Well, purple, mostly.
EV: But like I said, I met someone!
EV: A girl, even!
EV: I woke up with her sitting on my chest, and she's totally my girlfriend now!
TC: wow that was fast
TC: to be expected from a smoothtalker like you though hehe
EV: Hehe, yeah, I guess so!
TC: whats even her name
EV: Uh...
EV: She didn't tell me.
TC: and shes your girlfriend??
EV: Yes!
EV: She didn't want to tell me for some reason, I don't know why.
EV: Just said she's the "horror that flutters in the dark."
TC: wow that makes her sound scary though
EV: Well, she's not! I think it was just a joke or something.
EV: That whole place was a dark purple, and I guess we could fly there, so it fits.
EV: She's certainly no horror though.
TC: i should hope not
TC: and you can fly there?
TC: are you sure this wasnt a dream??
EV: Yes!
TC: ok just making sure
TC: geeze that did just happen so fast though
TC: what did you even talk about??
EV: Well, about the not-dream world, mostly.
EV: It's apparently a pretty scary place. She had been there for a while and was waiting for someone to wake up, mostly me.
TC: you were asleep there?
EV: Apparently.
EV: I told her I'd protect her, though, and we went for a walk.
TC: hehe yeah im sure the place isnt scary for a guy like you
EV: Exactly!
EV: I intimidated this weird black guy out of attacking us, even!
EV: Black as in, like, literally black, it was pretty strange actually.
EV: I'm not sure he was even human.
TC: huh cool
TC: but yeah i doubt any of them would want to mess with you!
EV: Yeah!
EV: Then after that, she made me promise...
EV: Oh...
TC: what?
EV: Um... nothing, don't worry about that.
TC: ok
TC: if you say so
EV: Yeah. I actually met another girl in this world, too!
EV: She said she was a friend of yours.
TC: oh yeah my server player!
EV: Yeah, I guess. I'm her server player, now, so yes.
TC: oh cool!
EV: Yeah! Her room was really dark, and she seems a bit weird, but... she's cool!
TC: hehehe yeah
TC: so wait did you teleport her house too?
EV: Oh, well, she...
EV: Uh...
EV: Erm...
TC: what??
EV: Oh! She's contacting me again now, actually!
EV: Hold on a second!
TC: oh ok

-- counterfeitOrigins [CO] began pestering extremeVelocity [EV] --

CO: i guess im in the game now
EV: Oh, good!
EV: So the bomb didn't kill you?
EV: Well, I guess I can see that, actually.
EV: But yeah, that's good.
CO: im in this weird swamp now
EV: Huh, no kidding.
EV: Could be worse, at least the water looks pretty calm.
CO: yeah but these little small guys keep bugging me
EV: Oh, yeah, those guys.
CO: but me and sailor robin have been taking care of them
EV: Oh, right, that, yeah!
EV: Great.
EV: I'm sure I could help, too.
CO: i guess shes also my mom now??
EV: Wait
EV: what?
CO: well she lead me to this glass tube thing and there was a dead woman in it, and i guess the sprite wanted her
CO: so i gave her to sailor robin and now shes tooks kind of different and tells me shes my mom
EV: Oh...
EV: Well, she's alive now! That's the BOUNDARIES being BROKEN ALREADY!
EV: Boundaries between LIFE and DEATH! That's a pretty big deal.
CO: oh wow i guess it is
EV: Yeah!
EV: Cool boundaries and a cool sprite for a cool girl!
EV: Well, they were broken, so I guess they're not that cool, but...
EV: I mean...
EV: The boundaries, I mean, because, you and your sprite are too cool, but, um...
CO: anyway im not sure what to do about these green guys
CO: i guess they wanted to fight so ive been shouting at them with my collectors edition sailor robin starwand with real soundeffects
CO: but they just look confused and walk away
EV: Oh, well, at least they're not hurting you.
EV: I could probably squish them or something, though, I guess.
EV: Although that seems a bit harsh if they're just walking away anyways.
CO: i was helping your sister fight some and i guess they drop gushers
CO: and then the gushers make the gushersmeter on my screen go up
EV: Oh!
EV: In that case, those things are delicious, let's KILL THEM ALL!
CO: yeah but when you touch it they just disappear
EV: Oh.
EV: Well, that seems pretty counter-productive.
CO: i think you can uses the gushers to build things on the clients house
EV: You can do that?
CO: sailor robin says we have to
CO: reach for the stars!~
CO: like on the show but i dont know what she means right now
EV: Maybe we can build a rocket.
CO: maybe i couldnt figure out how to do much with it
EV: Alright, I have some experience with games, let me see if I can figure something out.
EV: That should do it.
CO: i think you broke it
EV: Nonsense!
EV: Just have to hop in, press some buttons, and it's OFF TO THE STARS!
EV: Oh.
EV: It fell through the floor.
CO: I guess thats a deeper part of the lab but its so dark i cant see anything
EV: Well, let's not worry about that for now.
EV: I wonder if there's any other use for the gushermeter.
CO: i dunno
CO: i think you can use them to make things with the machines
CO: if im looking at the manual right
EV: Oh, cool, what kind of things?
CO: like you can combine objects if you punch your captchalogue cards
EV: Awesome, so you could combine, like...
EV: Uh...
EV: One of your toys, and...
EV: Another toy.
EV: Er, figurines, sorry.
CO: i could let me try that
CO: ...it looks weird
EV: That... yeah, that's pretty weird.
CO: like it just mixed the traits of each character into a new figurine
EV: Maybe you could make it an original character and sell it as a new line of toys?
CO: sell it to who
CO: the green guys?
EV: Uh... sure.
EV: Maybe that's all they want.
EV: Just some toys.
EV: Figurines.
CO: well ok ill try
CO: back
CO: just made like 10 boondollars
CO: thats what robin calls them
EV: Awesome.
EV: Although I guess there's not really a way to mass-produce them or anything.
EV: Since this would basically half your collection as it is.
CO: i think i can just make it again with the code
EV: Oh, cool.
EV: I think it makes the gushermeter go down, though.
EV: Not by much, though.
CO: im going to try mixing my wand with some science thing...
CO: which makes me wonder where father went
EV: Yeah, I haven't seen anyone else yet.
CO: the labs big i think theres actually a large part of it under the water so he could be anywhere
EV: Guess I could look around down there.
EV: Or not. That makes your room look like the Sun.
CO: yeah its pretty dark down there just looking through that hole you made in the floor
EV: No kidding.
CO: i guess i got this wand called supernova
EV: Awesome!
EV: Does it do anything special?
CO: i guess im just like blasting imps with starpower now or something
CO: its really fun shout robins attack names
EV: Oh, so you can actually fight them now, sweet.
CO: yeah pretty easily
EV: Also, we can build more stuff.
CO: sounds good
CO: are you building anything
EV: Oh, no, I haven't even seen any imps yet.
CO: doesnt mean you couldnt have fun with it!
EV: I guess that's true.
EV: Haven't seen my server player in a while, so I don't even know how high my gushermeter is.
CO: hey ive got an idea for something you can make
EV: What's that?
CO: try combining belts and clothes
CO: trust me
CO: ;)
EV: Um, alright.

And so, Hamilton scurried off to do just that. After a bit of digging around in his closet a bit, he managed to find a belt and made his way off. Thinking nothing of it, he decided to use his own shirt, flashing its many colors, as it defaulted to white when he took it off, as if it were actually working.

A few moments of tinkering later, and Hamilton quickly found himself wearing what could only be described as a horrible hodgepodge of belts put together in some sort of cruel imitation of a shirt. Much to his dismay, they kept the "mood-detecting" aspect of the shirt his father had given him so long ago, and it worked just as well, each belt now flashing rapidly between every color of the rainbow as he wore them.

Spoiler: click to show
EV: This is... entirely inconvenient.
EV: I probably shouldn't have used the shirt I was wearing.
EV: I really need to get some clothes that don't flash different colors, this is hurting my eyes just wearing it.
CO: one sec dont look at me on the screen
CO: i want this to be a surprise
EV: Alright.
CO: here have this code bIg5w0Rd
EV: Sounds good.
EV: A giant metal sheet?
CO: thats a sword
CO: see the handle
CO: its nimbus' breakerblade from Hindmost Historia
EV: Oh, yeah, there it is.
EV: I can't even lift the thing though!
EV: I mean
EV: Yeah, it's great.
CO: ):
CO: just
CO: try a little harder
CO: ok?
EV: I'm sure I can kick all kinds of butt with it!
EV: Yeah, I totally have it just fine now.
CO: oh cool!
EV: Was just messing with you before.
EV: Yep.
CO: you probably look super extra awesome
EV: Oh, definitely.
EV: Thanks for the gift!
CO: youre welcome lol
EV: I'm sure I'll get... lots of use out of this.
EV: Yep.
CO: so did you make anything for yourself then?
EV: Not yet.
EV: I'm sure I'll come up with something to go with the... ensemble you've given me.
CO: maybe a portable computer?
CO: actually i think ill do that too
EV: Good idea.
EV: Think I can combine it with my hat.
CO: oh that sounds cool
CO: i need something to combine mine with
EV: Uh... How about one of your toys again?
EV: You have a lot of those, so.
EV: Not entirely sure how it'd work, but...
CO: their not toys!
EV: Right! Figurines. That's what I meant.
CO: i told you that remember
CO: okay well i tried it but...
CO: i just got this monitor with a colorful wig stuck on top and big sparkling anime eyes on the screen
EV: Does it... work?
CO: well as a monitor
CO: its not portable at all
EV: Ah, dang.
CO: okay i think ive got it
EV: Awesome, what is it?
CO: i ordered this online once itll work great
CO: their my nekomimi brainwave cat ears
EV: Oh, that's cute!
CO: and they have this eye scanner thing that works as a computer on them now that i combined them
EV: Sweet.
EV: Alright, I'm going to try mine now.
EV: Switched over to it now. Seems to work great, and

-- extremeVelocity [EV] ceased pestering counterfeitOrigins [CO] --

Hamilton cursed to himself as the little holographic screen coming down from his hat's bill disappeared. Whacking the hat a few times made it flicker slightly, but it stayed off for the most part. Frustrated, he just walked over to the edge of his hallway, sitting on the edge as he looked out over the ocean. As terrifying as it was, it was kind of pre-

There it goes! The screen was finally actually on again. Hamilton excitedly sprang up and ran back towards his room, ready to chat some more... and then it went off again. Cursing to himself once again, he began heading back and- oh there it goes again. He stepped back towards his room, and off it went. Then towards the outside--on. Inside--off. Hmm.

Was it water-powered, from the rain? No, that made no sense. What else... the wind? What, did he have windmill on his head or something?...

Realization striking, Hamilton quickly used his finger to spin the propeller atop the hat. Yeah, that did it.

With that, he decided to contact his sister again.

Spoiler: click to show
EV: Yeah, I guess she did get teleported!
EV: She's in some swamp place, apparently.
TC: oh huh cool!
EV: I guess we all get teleported to different places, then.
TC: i guess so
TC: where are you then?
EV: Ugh, it's terrible.
EV: There's raging water everywhere, I'm only safe because I'm on some high-up cliff pillar thing, which there are a bunch of, but they're really spread out.
EV: Plus, it's raining constantly, and most importantly, there's this huge web everywhere!
EV: They might end up being my only way of getting around here, actually.
EV: Although I don't even see anything on the other places, so exploring doesn't really seem worth it.
TC: wow that does sound pretty terrible
TC: i have no water here at all though
TC: its actually really hot
TC: like the ground is super dry and cracked and stuff
TC: i thought it was sand at first but no its just really dry dirt!
TC: i also have giant webs everywhere though thats weird
EV: Huh. That girl I'm servering for doesn't have any in her place, so that's very weird indeed.
TC: i guess its just special to us then!
EV: Yeah, I guess so.
EV: Wish it was something else though. I just hope whatever made them isn't around.
TC: oh yeah geeze thatd be scary
TC: im sure you could handle it just fine though
EV: Oh, yeah, of course!
EV: I'd just... rather not risk the half of the house I have left.
TC: oh yeah that reminds me
TC: did you get half the dairy queen too?
EV: I haven't checked.
TC: you definitely should then there might be people in it!
TC: mine had some weird guy that was surprisingly ok with the whole thing
EV: Oh, wow, so you've actually met someone already, too?
TC: yeah i guess so
TC: hes definitely not my boyfriend though hehe
EV: Hehe, well, cool.
EV: I'll go check really quick though, yeah.
TC: ok cool
EV: Alright, checked.
TC: sweet!
TC: did you find anyone?
EV: No, but I did find a note.
EV: It just said "DEAR CUSTOMERS ;)" and had some ice cream by it.
EV: Not really sure who could've left it.
TC: huh thats really weird
TC: well
TC: was the ice cream good at least?
EV: Well, yes.
TC: hehe thats good
EV: But yeah, that aside, the girl helped me make some stuff.
EV: Apparently one of the machines from the game can let you combine items to make cool new items.
EV: I got this new... shirt, I guess you could call it.
EV: And a big sword weapon from her, although it's so big I can barely even drag it around.
EV: I mean, I can swing it around if I really want to, of course! But it's kind annoying.
TC: huh that does sound like kind of a pain
TC: you might want to make a weapon you can use more easily in case a big spider thing does come
EV: Yeah, probably.
TC: im sure you could handle it either way but still it doesnt hurt to be careful
EV: Exactly!
TC: well you could try combining the sword with something youre more comfortable with i guess
TC: whats something youre really experienced with using?
EV: Uh...
EV: My keyboard, I guess. Don't really need it anymore, anyways, since I also made this new hat-computer I'm using.
EV: It's why I took a bit to come back, as I apparently have to keep spinning the propellor to keep it running, and I have to wear it normally when I want to use it since the display comes down from the bill, but aside from that, it's great!
TC: oh huh that is cool
TC: can use it wherever you go then
TC: i should make something like that too
TC: then we can talk to each other whenever we want!
EV: Hehe, yeah!
EV: Huh, the Wordgrinder.
TC: what?
EV: That's what the machine called the result of the sword and keyboard.
EV: I guess it's, like... some kind of keyboard chainsaw.
TC: haha wow that sounds amazing!
EV: Yeah, it does seem pretty great.
EV: Sure as heck a lot lighter than the sword was.
TC: can it actually even cut anything though?
TC: i dunno how good a keyboard would be at that
EV: Yeah, it cuts just fine.
EV: Makes a bit of a mess though.
TC: hehe yeah my drill is the same way
EV: Well, I'm going to see if I can get back with counterfeitOrigins, her ghost thing seemed to have a good idea of what we should be doing next.
TC: oh huh, reminds me i havent seen casper in a while
EV: Casper?
TC: yeah my ghost thing turned into a spiderghost but its still friendly!
TC: so i call it casper
TC: i dont know where she went though
EV: Oh... I think it came to me.
EV: I refuse to trust that thing, though!
TC: hey she doesnt appreciate that
EV: It's a spider! How would you even know?
TC: she just told me
TC: i guess she just now teleported back to me or something
EV: Oh...
EV: Yeah, he's gone from here now.
TC: yeah she helped me fight the other spiders even so shes cool by me
EV: I guess that's good, but still...
TC: hehe well as long as you dont try to kill her
TC: im telling you shes nice though
EV: Yeah, sure.
EV: Well, I'm going to contact counterfeitOrigins now and see if I can figure something out.
TC: ok bye!
EV: See you.

-- extremeVelocity [EV] ceased pestering trivialCelebration [TC] --


"Well that was a pleasant surprise!" Shammy cheered to herself, happy to find out her brother was okay. With that done, though, she turned to Casper, thinking maybe her ghost would have some wisdom on where to go from here, as well. "So where do I go from here?" she asked. Yep.

"Fortifying one's web would be the way to go for now." the spidersprite hissed, "Strengthening the web you have, and stretching it further into the sky."

Shammy just kind of stared in reply. "Well, I guess I can mix some stuff together like Hammy was doing." she finally said to herself, making her way over to the game's machines.

Cut to a few minutes later and she'd have computer-pants (yes) and a new drill by the name of I Scream that looked like a large ice cream cone and was cold to the touch. Satisfied with these, Shammy decided now was a good a time as any to go explore outside and see what those pink bugs in their hives were up to.

FUTURE extremeVelocity [FEV] 8:15 HOURS FROM NOW opened memo on board DOCTOR FUNTIMES CHAT.

FEV: Yo, dogs, I figured I'd save you all a bunch of time and just bring you together.
FEV: Seriously, it'd take you dudes way too long otherwise, trust me, it's embarassing.
CURRENT counterfeitOrigins [CCO] RIGHT NOW responded to memo.
CCO: oh ok?
CURRENT trivialCelebration [CTC] RIGHT NOW responded to memo.
CTC: woah what?
CTC: youre from the future?
CURRENT extremeVelocity [CEV] RIGHT NOW responded to memo.
CEV: Yeah, I mean, that seems a little crazy, even for me.
FEV: Haha, don't kid yourself.
CCO: so are you here to warn us of our doom or something?
FEV: Nah, don't worry about how I'm doing it, that's not the point.
FEV: While I'm sure you'd love to be graced with my wondrous presence, a rad dude like me has important things that need doing, this was only one of them.
FEV: Just take comfort in knowing you'll eventually partake in the pleasure of being me, me.
FEV: See you dudes later.
FUTURE extremeVelocity [FEV] ceased responding to memo.
CEV: Uh...
CCO: what was that all about
CEV: No idea.
CEV: However, I was going to contact you!
CCO: yeah you cut out last time
CCO: everything ok?
CEV: Oh, yeah, just had a bit of trouble figuring out how my new computer works.
CEV: I wanted to ask if you got any idea of what we're supposed to be doing next from your sprite.
CTC: ok yeah thatd be nice to know i guess
CCO: well they keep talking about the stars
CCO: so i looked up and saw this ring above my house
CCO: but i dont know how to get there
CTC: im just checking out these pink things in my land so dont mind me if i dont talk much or something sorry
CEV: Oh, huh.
CEV: Well, I'd suggest a rocket again, but I'm not so sure that'd go any better than last time.
CTC: wow you guys are building rockets already?
CCO: not...
CCO: really
CEV: Uh...
CEV: Yeah, don't worry about it.
CCO: hey tc
CTC: eh?
CCO: hows your mother doing?
CTC: oh
CTC: i havent her yet seen...
CCO: alright
CCO: best wishes and all
CEV: Wait, you saw father, too?
CTC: I guess...
CCO: wait what
CCO: i didnt see your father there
CEV: Well, I mean...
CEV: I don't really know what's up with him at the moment.
CTC: yeah...
CTC: so hey those stars!
CTC: maybe you should try building up your house or something?
CCO: i guess i could just place a lot of stairs on your house
CTC: haha yeah that could work!
CEV: Sounds good to me.
CCO: but
CCO: watch out
CCO: stairs work a strange and treacherous magic
CTC: what
CCO: kekeke
CCO: sorry that was a joke i had with my online friends
CCO: about this old low budget anime
CTC: um
CTC: sure!
CEV: Hahaha, yeah, of course!
CCO: yeah i thought ev might of seen it
CCO: since hes seen Sailor Robin
CCO: its called Samurai Buro and Herra Jefu
CTC: youve seen these things hammy?
CEV: Yeah, apparently! I mean, obviously!
CCO: we were talking about our favorite Sailor Robin episodes a moment ago
CTC: oh wow
CTC: i never heard about this you shouldve told me
CTC: i couldve totally watched them with you!
CEV: Uh, well...
CCO: ive got all the episodes
CCO: maybe we can all get together and watch them
CEV: It's what I did when you were away! Obviously. That makes sense.
CTC: yeah that sounds great!
CEV: Erm... yes.
CCO: hmm reminds me
CCO: i really should see how my online friends are doing
CCO: they started their own game of sburb
CTC: oh cool!
CEV: Well, I'll just try building up your house. Maybe use some of these elevators or something.
CCO: will they even work?
CCO: i just made some stairs on tcs house
CTC: ok sweet ill be sure to check them out when i get back!
CCO: theyre kinda thin but they should work for now
CTC: also these bugs in this area seem pretty cool
CEV: Alright, well, I think the elevators work.
CCO: i guess ill go try those then
CEV: You might have to climb out and up into the next one each time one reaches the top, though.
CEV: I couldn't really find a way to combine them all into one big elevator.
CCO: its not like i can get anywhere else in this dumb swamp
CCO: oh um
CCO: im not sure i can do that
CEV: Ah. Well, I think I can add some stairs going from each one to the next.
CEV: Okay, yeah. It seems a bit unstable, but I think that should work.
CCO: oh ok that sounds fine
CCO: alright im in the first one
CEV: Yeah! That's... progress.
CCO: alright in the second one...
CCO: its getting a little wobbly the higher i go up
CEV: Yeah...
CCO: alright im up
CCO: this is the third one
CCO: im getting a little nervous
CEV: Yeah, just... be careful.
CCO: uhh hey can you get me down from here
CCO: somehow?
CEV: Alright, yeah.
CEV: Let me just...
CCO: because if i move
CCO: i am going to fall
CEV: Okay, I went ahead and just made the stairs go all the way up to that point next to the elevators.
CEV: Those should be more stable.
CCO: alright ill just go to the ground then
CEV: Alright.
CCO: you need to delete all this and build a new way up
CCO: sorry
CEV: Yeah, sorry about that.
CCO: its ok
CCO: i dont know how but
CCO: i just knew that if i moved i would fall
CCO: no matter what
CEV: Probably a safe bet.
CCO: i hope tc wont have any problems with my stairs
CTC: oh im sure theyll be fine!
CCO: thanks!
CCO: hows the bug talk going
CTC: well theyre apparently blind for one thing
CCO: awww poor them ):
CTC: yeah
CTC: they say this place used to not be so dry and bright
CCO: thats interesting
CTC: their hives are reflective because it used to make pretty rainbows and stuff but now theyre just blinding
CTC: literally
CCO: i wonder if the swamp used to be not terrible and smelly
CTC: haha maybe
CTC: oh yeah and most importantly they gave me some super sweet shades!
CCO: yeah i was going to ask if you were blind yet
CTC: apparently they were holding them because they were expecting me for some reason
CCO: sweet
CTC: they had a lot to say about that actually but its weird
CCO: well i mean their blind bugs
CCO: how would they even recognize anyone they wait for
CTC: haha yeah thats a good point actually!
CTC: but yeah something about someone who will void out the light
CTC: i dunno
CCO: hey ev youre good at video games right?
CEV: Uh, yes!
CEV: Of course!
CCO: do you know whats up with the bugs?
CEV: Oh, well...
CEV: If they were waiting for you to save them and gave you shades, then...
CEV: You'll probably have to fight like a million virtual clone agent guys, and you'll learn to dodge bullets.
CCO: no wait i think
CCO: tc will need to burst through the sky with her drill
CTC: im not sure the sky works that way
CTC: or my drill for that matter
CCO: nonsense
CCO: just need to believe
CTC: id like to but im not sure i can
CCO: no thats not how believing works
CCO: you believe with all your heart
CCO: and then it stops being fake forever
CTC: well ok i guess ill try!
CCO: look i met Sailor Robin
CCO: i just had to believe!
CEV: Uh... I really don't think it works that way, though.
CTC: well hey no point in not trying!
CEV: I... guess.
CCO: i also believed that i would meet Nimbus
CCO: and here he is
CCO: right now
CCO: thats two for two
CCO: i win
CTC: see you cant argue with results!
CEV: But...
CEV: Okay.
CEV: Alright, I think I got something now.
CEV: I copied a lily-pad from outside and made a series of jump-pads.
CTC: sounds fun!
CEV: Yeah. Also sounds dangerous, but fortunately, this time I also used the lily-pads to make a safety net below them all.
CCO: ok thanks
CEV: No problem!
CCO: well
CCO: im going to bounce my way to victory
CCO: ill talk to you guys later
CTC: ok bye!
CEV: Yeah, see you!
CEV: Good luck!
CCO: boing~
CCO ceased responding to memo.

And then Ali bounced her way to victory. Going through the ring in the sky, she ended up standing a destroyed board walk, with crushed houses. Now that she was further away from her house she saw that not only the small green guys were here but bigger guys of shades of green too. She saw what looked like a standing turtle, also green, being chased by the monsters. Everything was so leaf colored she had trouble telling where the monsters were. It all just blended together. She thought back to Robinsprite. If she really was her mother, then who was she? Father never mentioned her, why was she frozen? Her head buzzed with questions but she was too nervous to ask them. Even if you can make your hero's come to life, it doesn't make it any easier to talk to them! Especially when they're now also the mother you never knew you had. If she waited the answer would come. She knew it would. Ali's thoughts then jumped elsewhere as she explored what appeared to be a tiny broken village. Her friends still needed to get back to her about their session. Maybe they were just having too much fun to bother talking to her? After wandering and losing herself in thought she came up to the end of the dock.

Looking in the distance she saw a large building and unlike the smaller surrounding huts it was completely unharmed and almost looked like it was from Earth instead of the game. It took a second to even realize it was there as the building was green. The coloring almost camouflaged it in the natural hues of the swamp. In a curious daze, she walked towards it.

He's back and slower than ever.

Jack climbed through a building, getting closer to his home. He turned to see a small black kitten in the building, pinned under some burning debris. It was crying softly, and looked up at Jack with pleading eyes. Jack jumped through the fire and lifted up the debris, grabbing the kitten, and jumping out the window. He ran into the church, and dunked the kitten in the holy water, putting out the fire with minimal harm to the cat.

Jack then noticed that his hoodie was on fire. He picked up the bowl and dumped it on himself, cursing loudly, catching the cat in his mouth. He put the bowl down, and then jumped up to his room, putting the kitten down on the floor as he quickly changed hoodies. He swapped out screens on his PC, and quickly replaced his router.

Listening to the screams outside, he felt stupid just sitting here playing a game. But....

Before he could continue that train of thought, two chat windows popped up with messages from offline people. They must have needed something, and then left to do other things?

[CG] began messaging abscondingHazard [AH]

-- abscondingHazard [AH] is now an idle chum! --

Huh, you missed a chance to talk to CG. !#%$. You'll have to catch them later.

FUTURE abscondingHazard [FAH] 1025 HOURS FROM NOW is pestering you!

FAH: hey
FAH: hah
FAH: i guess pesterchum has a limit on how far in the future you can be
FAH: well
FAH: in any case
FAH: you need to connect to taterSalad and bring them into the game
FAH: if you don't
FAH: bad !#%$ goes down
FAH: trust me
FAH: !#%$
FAH: i have to go

FAH ceased.

You haven't quite seen a conversation end with ceased before. That made Jack somewhat nervous, actually. Everything about this game was starting to make Jack feel a little off. He was starting to have second thoughts about participating. But, then again, he really had no other choice at this point.
The kitten starts crying at his feet, and he picked it up and let it curl up in his lap while he contacted this TS person they were talking about.

TS: ...
AH: haha what is this sims !#%$
-- taterSalad [TS] the pillow plops on her head comically. --
AH: this is much better than burning to death
TS: Okay, I already did this in your situation, so let me give you a quick walkthrough.
TS: Which is to say, this game actually allows you to affect reality.
AH: hey i've got thingos up here
AH: which one do you need first
TS: For example, this is my actual room.
AH: hurr oh man a girls room
TS: Just deploy the machinery things in any order. Make sure they're easily accessible, though.
AH: ive never seen one of those before
AH: hmmm
AH: they're all pretty big
TS: I have a guest bedroom, that could be a place to start.
AH: okay
AH: lets put the big machine with the arm thing in there
TS: Feel free to chuck the bed to make room.
TS: The guest bedroom's bed, obviously.
-- abscondingHazard [AH] deploys the device --
AH: hang on i've got an idea
AH: i bet i can put that bed
AH: on top of the platform thing
AH: and get more of these gushers
AH: okay cool i can
TS: Mmmm. Gushers.
AH: yeah
AH: thats what they look like
AH: hang on i'm gonna
AH: make your guest room bigger
TS: While you deploy those, I'm going to get some gushers from the kitchen.
AH: cool
-- taterSalad [TS] hops off of her chair and goes to get GUSHERS --
-- abscondingHazard [AH] expands the size of the room --
AH: ugghhhh
AH: it looks like !#%$
AH: on the outside
AH: i bet i can like, make some pillers to go underneath it later

-- abscondingHazard [AH] deploys the card on top of TS --

AH: just fyi
-- taterSalad [TS] blinks and grabs the card. --
-- taterSalad [TS] she soon returns to the computer. Eyeroll. --
AH: i saw that
TS: I'm sure your fountains of knowledge will make up for that minor inconvience.
AH: i deleted the bed and got more gushers
AH: nothing is happening
AH: i think you need to open that capsule thing over there
AH: but
AH: i have a weird feeling about that thing
TS: Slam something big against it.
TS: That's what I did.
AH: what
AH: you can't just open it?
TS: No.
AH: oh
TS: I used a Dairy Queen sign myself.
AH: hang on i've got this
-- abscondingHazard [AH] picks up toilet and rips it out of the ground making a loud crashing sound --
TS: ...
AH: i didnt think i could do that
AH: !#%$
TS: Try putting it back.
AH: that sounds like a horrible idea, but okay
TS: The worst that can happen is horrible maiming leading to a slow and painful death followed by bodily descreation by sewage.
-- abscondingHazard [AH] shoves the toilet back into its hole, breaking the floor and sending water everywhere --
AH: no wait
TS: ...
TS: And I thought I was bad.
-- abscondingHazard [AH] closes door --
AH: THERE !#%$
TS: You'll need to find a way to stop the water later.
AH: yeah yeah
TS: For now, let's focus on the...capsule thing.
-- taterSalad [TS] rips open a gusher bag and pours all of it's contents into her mouth. --
AH: hmmm
AH: oh
AH: duh
-- taterSalad [TS] DELICIOUS DEVOURING. --
-- abscondingHazard [AH] picks up the nice-looking desk and starts to bash it into the capsule --
TS: ...
TS: What are you using now.
AH: some desk i found in a dark room
TS: ...
-- taterSalad [TS] facepalm. --
TS: That my sister's desk.
TS: It has some very important detective-y paperwork in it!
AH: MAN I'M SO SORRY wait no i'm not wait
AH: wait wait
-- taterSalad [TS] DID THE CAPSULE OPEN --
AH: your sister is a detective?
-- abscondingHazard [AH] the capsule pops open --
TS: Yeah.
AH: Oh
AH: Like
AH: working with the police department detective?
TS: Yes, that kind of detective.
AH: Oh
TS: I'm in training to become one, too.
AH: thats a shame
AH: i mean
AH: good luck
AH: !!!
AH: hey whats that deal that popped out of the tube
AH: it looks angry
TS: Ah, yes, that thing. Let me go check it out.
-- taterSalad [TS] GOES TO THE GUEST ROOM. --
-- taterSalad [TS] the sprite continues flipping all kinds of !#%$. --
AH: hey don't touch that thing
AH: i remember what that is called
AH: !#%$ you cant hear me
-- taterSalad [TS] suddenly deploys what appears to be an OLD LAPTOP. --
-- taterSalad [TS] after a long bootup she gets on it and connects to the previous chat. --
AH: hey, my mentor warned me about that thing
AH: don't touch it
TS: Okay.
TS: I won't.
AH: we need to put something into it
TS: How about this laptop?
AH: that could work
AH: from what i can remember though
AH: the enemies you are going to fight will get the powers of whatever you put in that
TS: I see.
TS: A laptop isn't too harmful though, is it?
AH: i don't know??
AH: i'm not a !#%$ nerd
TS: Of course you aren't.
-- taterSalad [TS] EYEROLL THE THIRD. --
AH: hehe, yeah
AH: spoilers im just some fat nerd from new york
AH: you got me
AH: i'm totally not some dangerous criminal or anything
AH: that would be dumb
AH: hey
AH: whats that timer
TS: Oh, most certainly. That's not why you reacted adversely to the reveal of detectiveness at all.
-- taterSalad [TS] examines the TIMER. --
AH: okay you are examining the hell out of that timer kid
AH: whats its deal
TS: It's a timer.
AH: HOLY !#%$
TS: Shocking, I know.
TS: It doesn't seem to really connect to anything.
AH: i dunno
AH: its making me nervous
TS: So I can only presume it is counting down to a predetermined event.
AH: what about that card you got
-- taterSalad [TS] examines the pre-punched card. --
TS: It's got holes in it.
TS: I think I stick it in this machine right here...
AH: it looks like something else goes in that
TS: No, I think it goes in that.
AH: no i mean
AH: two things go in there
TS: Oh.
AH: yeah see
TS: Hm.
AH: the card triggers that spinny thing
AH: you need something to go there
AH: it looks like it may carve something
-- taterSalad [TS] looks around for something like that. She presumably finds the CRUXITE DOWEL. --
AH: pffff
AH: what the hell is that
AH: can you make infinite of those?
TS: I don't know yet.
-- taterSalad [TS] seems if it fits into the carve-y thing. It does. --
AH: oh
AH: thats pretty neat i guess
AH: where do you put that?
TS: The card?
AH: no
AH: get the thing carved
AH: and then figure out where you need to put the carved deal
TS: Hm.
AH: also, make sure you feed your sprite a thing
-- taterSalad [TS] throws it at the Totem Lathe. This works. --
TS: Yeah, I'll feed it before I put in the card.
TS: Hm, or perhaps it would be wiser to see what the card did, but not do anything after that.
AH: okay kid, whatever you say
TS: I believe I will do that.
-- taterSalad [TS] puts the card in. The totem now looks sort of like an hourglass. CARVED. --
AH: i'm noticing that the timer is steadily ticking down while we piss around with doodads and deals
TS: Oh, nonsense. We've got plenty of time.
-- taterSalad [TS] not really. --
TS: Anyway, tossing the laptop in.
-- taterSalad [TS] TOSS! --
-- taterSalad [TS] suddenly LAPTOPSPRITE? --
AH: wow great job kid
AH: hey not to alarm you or anything
AH: but the bathroom situation has not improved
TS: ...
AH: i think maybe you should probably go in there with a white shirt on and try to fix it
-- taterSalad [TS] raises an eyebrow at the sprite. --
AH: wait
AH: wait am i talking from the sprite
TS: ...Yes. Yes you are.
AH: i can't really tell, but i'm assuming i have some !#%$ microsoft sam voice
TS: Not really.
AH: thats a shame
TS: Hm. This greatly reduces the ability for amusing references.
AH: it greatly increases my chances for literally yelling at you to get a move on
-- taterSalad [TS] eyeroll. She places the hourglass dowel on the thing. --
TS: Yes, that was so very time consuming.
AH: okay so
AH: what
AH: okay
AH: its doing a thing
-- taterSalad [TS] AND THEN WHAT APPEARS IS --
-- taterSalad [TS] AN --
-- taterSalad [TS] HOURGLASS. It's big. --
AH: what
AH: what is that
TS: ...
AH: is that what i think it is
TS: It's an hourglass.
AH: yeah
AH: thats what i thought
AH: why is it an hourglass
TS: Well, the thingy was shaped like an hourglass.
AH: well
AH: okay yes but
AH: what the !#%$ are you going to do with that
TS: Hm.
AH: hey not to nag
TS: Well, I could wait to see if all of whatever is inside getting to the bottom does something, or...
TS: I could do this.
AH: that timer is really getting down there
-- taterSalad [TS] proceeds to take out a pistol and shoot the hourglass. --
AH: jesus kid
-- taterSalad [TS] presumably this causes WEIRD MEDIUM ENTERING !#%$? --
AH: hey kid?
AH: i can't see you anymore
AH: kid?
-- taterSalad [TS] is now an idle chum! --
AH: !#%$

Alight, it seems we're about to get this game going, just have to find someone to connect to me...

He glances at the OMEM chat and picks the first name he sees.

Sure, you'll be fine.

-- audaciousPrizefighter [AP] began pestering trivialCelebration [TC] --

TC: oh right
TC: ok i just used the body of that monster thing

AP: Am I making a fruit smoothie?
TC: uhhh

AP: What the hell is UP WITH THIS GAME?
TC: either that or throwing fruit at the monsters and trying to awkwardly slice them with a blender
TC: i dunno
TC: it is pretty weird
AP: Well either way I'm pretty thirsty after all those fights.
TC: haha ok sounds good!
AP: Might as well drink this thing while a horde of ungodly abominations destroy my home.
TC: yeah cant fight if youre not refreshed!
AP: This smoothie tastes like !#%$.

Alex noticed things had changed. He found his house was high in the air, on some sort of stone pillar. Looking below he saw a sprawling labyrinth. The sudden heat pounded down on him as he exited his home. But it was better than the pounding headache he had before.

He wondered if he'd ever get a chance to knit again. I mean, its not like he liked it or anything. It was just something to do when he was bored. And living in a jungle can get pretty boring sometimes. He thought that if the others saw, they would probably laugh at him.

He also thought about the dreams he's been having lately. Vaguely remembered dreams. They permeated him with feelings of wrongness. A wrongness that stood out from a life of fighting things that should not be. It's always been there, that uncomfortable itching feeling that hes never understood.

He went back into his home where he ran into the ghostly image of Ol' Charlie. It tried speaking but he still could not understand it. He could feel the headache returning. He needed something to dissipate its voice static. Something more earthly. He looked around his collection of animals from hunts he stuffed. Strong beasts he did battle with. He wonder if any of them would even work. He couldn't imagine the creatures he slayed thinking kindly of him.

And that is when the assault began. The monkeys he had forgotten about must have been hiding in his house. They jumped on him and climbed his head and pulled hair when he heard something happen. He gazed upon the sprite and saw that one of the monkeys had jumped into it.

This is going to be a long a game.

He's back and slower than ever.

Location: Neptune
Drill chilling her hair, computer pants at the ready, Shammy was set for adventure. As she did so, however, her sprite hissed a call, telling her "I'll keep my web invisible; the threads of fear need not be woven now." to which Shammy nodded, even if she wasn't entirely sure she understood. Regardless, Casper disappeared without another trace as Shammy stepped forward into the great unknown, the heat baring down on her like a tidal wave of sweat. Just as she was finally making her way out, though, her pants rang aloud with an assortment of beeps and boops. Didn't she just get off that thing? Well, whatever, she pulled the screen back out from the pants' crotch, not thinking anything of it, the keyboard dropping down from the underside. A memo, huh, nothing too pressing, then. She just gave her two cents now and again, but continued on her way; she was really starting to get curious about these pink things now.

Suddenly, though, with a sharp "BZZZ," a pink hornet sprang up right in front of her from seemingly nowhere. "You--" it buzzed, "how many fingers am I holding up?" With that question, it held up a thin bug leg.

"Uh... no offense, but you don't have any fingers." Shammy replied, a bit confused.

With that, the hornet buzzed and hovered around excitedly, seeming very pleased with that answer. "Excellent! So you really are the hero we've been waiting for!" it cheered, pulling out what could only be described as sunglasses and handing them over to Shammy, "Then you'll need these."

Shammy was happy to oblige to this and quickly put the shades on, but was still confused all the same: "Um, I can try, I guess, but I'm not much of a hero; that's more my brother's territory. He's great at video games, I'm sure he could solve your problem no sweat."

The hornet shook its head, replying with "No, the Heart can't help us." Grabbing Shammy's hand, the hornet began walking her towards a nearby hive before continuing on with, "Come with me. But yes, the Heart can only clear the skies. Ours have burned away any remnant of skylife long ago. Besides, he is nothing without your nothing. What we need is you to Void out the light that's blinded our hope. We used to be a people of beauty; our hives would reflect the light into the rain around us to make the most beautiful of rainbows and light shows, the likes of which could impress any being. Now, the clouds are cleared, leaving only searing light and flaming smog. The Infernal Trickster has drank all our water, devoured our queen, and burned our eyes out, leaving us only with the hives that set us ablaze should we stay inside too long, and its horrible children to slowly devour what remain of us." With that last line, he turned back towards Shammy, as they had apparently arrived outside the hive, where many of the hornets were gathered, "So, will you be our Queen of Void?"

"Uh..." Shammy stumbled out, a bit taken back from this bomb of exposition as she tried to split her attention between it and the chat taking place on her computer, "I can try to help, but I don't know about being a queen. I can just, like, serve you guys, or something, y'know?"

The hornet sighed, but still seemed pleased enough. "We'll need a queen to keep us from dying out, but we'll take what we can get." it said, "Regardless, all hail the Void of Light!" With that, the hornets cheered.

It was at that moment that Shammy noticed someone that was considerably less hornet: the good ol' mysterious engineer, maven enigma, it was her mother! Happy as ever, Shammy squealed and ran at her parent, hugging her as tightly as she could manage, which was made a bit awkward by the computer screen sticking out in between them. "Good to oculify you, too." Mysterious Engineer said with a smile. She was a bit different now, though; her entire left half was replaced with a robotic half. Not just a symmetrical robot half, though: the body of that half hung lower, having three small, almost spider-like legs that scuttled along the floor, but moved in unison with the single, organic right leg just fine. On top of that, from a small opening on the neck area, a tiny, stick-like arm hung out, looking like a silly, small tyrannasaurus rex's arm, holding a cup of refreshment that the Mysterious Engineer drank from.

"You're okay!" Shammy cheered.

"It was an assuriance. But yes, I figure you'll need to go on some personiable adventurlative quest to save these blinsects, as anything I've come up with would only make this place 20% cooler, and that just won't cuttify." the Mysterious Engineer replied.

"Oh, I... see." Shammy said back, not entirely sure what to make of that sentence.

"Yes, a personal adventure!" a bug buzzed in with, "if you go into this hive, you should be able to find a way to underground where you might find some interesting things. Just be quick; staying on the surface will result in you burning alive if you take too long."

Shammy nodded cheerfully, "Sounds great! Hopefully it's cooler down there." she said, running off with the Mysterious Engineer. As they lowered into the depths, it quickly got darker and darker; Mysterious Engineer compensated, though, as her eyes lit up, serving as flashlights. The walls seemed to have strange carvings.

It was then, though, that she got a message from someone else.

-- audaciousPrizefighter [AP] began pestering trivialCelebration [TC] --


And thus, this conversation that you've already seen went on. As Alex entered the medium, Shammy saw the nonsense he had to face, and they went on to have a conversation that you haven't seen yet.

-- trivialCelebration [TC] began pestering audaciousPrizefighter [AP] --

TC: oh are those monkey things bothering you?
TC: oh i guess theyre gone now
AP: Yeah but they left.
AP: I'm in the game now.
TC: well thats good!
TC: this place looks really dry
TC: just like mine actually
AP: I can't really see whats going on below.
TC: yeah youre really high up
AP: Looks like there are walls everywhere.
TC: no kidding
TC: well if you ever get down there you could probably just punch the walls or something i mean geeze
AP: Eh.
AP: I don't think I'm THAT strong.
TC: hehe fair enough
AP: So does this machinery do anything else?
TC: still though im amazed how tough you are and how big your house is!
AP: Haha
AP: I guess I am pretty tough.
TC: from what ive heard so far you probably have the best bet at this game out of us so far
TC: except maybe my brother
AP: Huh reminds me...
TC: hm?
AP: Did some scotish guy join our game or anything?
TC: i dont think so
TC: i dont think ive talked to everyone yet though
AP: Oh I thought he said he was playing.
AP: Or maybe he said waiting?
TC: huh i dont know about any scottish guy
TC: well if hes a friend of yours i hope he shows up!
AP: Yeah we're buds.
AP: He was always getting me hyped for the game.
TC: well im sure hes in here somewhere!
AP: I might have to ask him about it.
TC: ok cool
TC: did you need anything else?
AP: Well I guess I just need to know what to do next.
AP: You know what the goal of this game is?
TC: oh
TC: i need to build up your house to the sky!
TC: i can do that with some stairs or something
AP: Then...
AP: What do I do?
TC: uhh go through some ring or something i guess
TC: after that i dont really know
AP: Is that the goal of the game?
AP: Seems pretty simple.
TC: i guess so yeah
AP: What no fights or anything?
AP: No weapons?
TC: well i had to fight some glass spider things
TC: and you can use one of the machines to combine stuff including weapons
AP: I guess there are monsters and !#%$ then.
TC: yeah i guess so
AP: Weapons? SIGN ME UP.
TC: hehe alright sounds good
TC: youll want this machine over here
AP: I'm going to try out these machines then.
TC: yeah
TC: you can combine pretty much any two things
TC: ill build your house up in the mean time
AP: Ok.
AP: I just made a ton of things.
AP: I'll try them all out in time.
TC: ok sweet!
TC: ive just been getting a bit caught up with building up this house
TC: theres so much to work with hehe
TC: dont want to ruin your decor or anything since its pretty fancy
TC: not really counting your messy room hehe
TC: it has its own charm though
TC: fitting for a tough guy like you
AP: The room WAS better
AP: before I got in a fight with a monster.
TC: ah yeah thatd do it
TC: i could help clean it up if you want
AP: No.
AP: I'd rather my room stay personal and all.
TC: ah ok
AP: Even if you have a magic window into it.
TC: yeah ill try not to look too much then sorry
AP: It's cool.
AP: Thanks for being considerate.
AP: Hey actually...
AP: I've got a question.
AP: Do you think the game effects our dreams?
TC: uh maybe
TC: i dont think ive been asleep yet since i started it
TC: why what have your dreams been like?
AP: I can hardly remember them but they're haunting to say the least.
AP: What about before you entered the game?
TC: oh wow that sucks
TC: uh dont think i can remember much anything from my dreams
TC: although there was this one time
AP: Huh?
TC: i dreamed that my brother was an ice cream cone
TC: but he ate me
TC: it was pretty weird
AP: Oh ha. That just sounds like a regular nightmare or whatever.
TC: yeah pretty much
AP: What I'm talking about is hard to describe.
TC: huh bummer
TC: well i hope it gets better
AP: Thanks.
TC: no problemo!
AP: Do you see anyone around my house other than me?
TC: hm well
TC: i think i see some of those monkeys from earlier partying with some little gremlin monster things
TC: theyre grey
AP: I went to check it out.
AP: The new guys don't seem to like me.
AP: I guess they're monsters or something so I OWNED them.
TC: yeah you were great!
TC: i thought about helping but you were doing such a great job taking them out i didnt want to interfere
AP: But yeah, you didn't happen to see my father anywhere did you?
TC: sorry no i didnt
AP: That's cool.
AP: I'll have to try and get ahold of him.
TC: sounds good
TC: i got good progress on building up your house though!
AP: Oh sweet.
TC: yeah its great!
TC: just gotta put this part here and

And without another moment, Shammy found a rock crumble down from above and smack her on the head, making her pass out cold.

AH: i bet under that kilt your wearing a plaid diaper
SH: I think tha one whose undergarments are more in question here would probably be ye
AH: hey
AH: dont
SH: no I think I will.
AH: !#%$ peek all up at me
AH: look at my treasures instead
AH: look im distracting you with my phat loot piles
SH: Your treasures? Is tha' what ye call those? I mean they are awfully big and full of stuff, bu'
SH: I imagine there's plenty of tha' on this quest.
AH: yeah maybe
SH: I'm raidin' castles. Fightin' wars. I's jes' gotten underway for me bu' there is so much on the horizon
AH: but !#%$ shiny ass gold dude this stuff rocks
AH: ugh
AH: you actually like fighting?
SH: and ye're pointin' at the piles of gold you have in this normal world den?
SH: Och, definitely.
AH: mnh
SH: I said grog and jigs were one o' tha best things bu'
SH: nothin' beats puttin' tha enemy under rout and tha sword.
SH: Well
SH: unless ye add some grog to that as well!
SH: I assumed ye migh' as well.
SH: Where else would ye get all tha loot from?
AH: stole it
SH: ...
SH: Really.
AH: you could say im a cat burgler
SH: A thief, are ye?
AH: a bit of one
AH: just a little bit
SH: Bahahahaha, then perhaps it IS ye who has the diaper on.
AH: dude
AH: you see those jewels over there
SH: Och, sorry, sorry jes'
AH: the !#%$ crown jewels
SH: lemme remove thes solitary tear from me eye
SH: tha' came up as I was laughin'
AH: ugh
SH: I'm sure es a very ennoblin' profession
AH: not really
AH: keeps you alive
SH: ta slink aroun' like a women tryin' not ta wake up her husband
SH: in tha middle of the night
AH: alright
AH: yeah
AH: first off
AH: i havent stolen during the night in years
AH: no challenge to it
AH: secondly
SH: Oh?
AH: i could break you in an instant
SH: Is tha' righ' now?
AH: yes
AH: but i wont
AH: because fighting is for loser babies
SH: Och. Lad. Ye dunnae know what ye're talkin' abou'.
SH: Fightin' is everythin' good in life all in one package.
SH: Well
SH: not so much the dyin' part necessarily
AH: i'm not too sure you even know what girls are?
SH: What.
SH: Of course I do.
AH: so your saying that fighting is better than sex
AH: hmmmmmmmmmmm!!!
SH: Depends. Although I will say tha' post-battle sex would probably be quite incredible.
SH: Haven't found tha womenfolk here though to test it.
SH: Horses are nae really my thing.
AH: you sure about that
AH: i'm sure you'd love to ride a horse or two
SH: Around 90%.
SH: Actually these horses dunnae take so well ta bein' ridden.
SH: I think they expect a fight or two more behind my belt before that's in the cards.
SH: Hard tae tell. This game designer musta fancied him some puzzles.
SH: A lot of 'em speak in crypticisms, if they have anythin' useful ta say at all.
SH: Besides, ye say ye hate fightin'
SH: wha' exactly do ye expect in this game anywhoo?
AH: survival
AH: like to not !#%$ die in a fire
SH: Och I guess that does explain some of the smoke.
SH: Thought ye had some exceptionally rowdy kitchenwork goin' on.
AH: i live in a church dude
AH: i dont even think this place has a kitchen
SH: Really?
SH: Seems bloody daft to me.
SH: How do ye eat withou' a kitchen?
AH: i'd agree with you but
SH: Actually more to tha point
AH: then i'd have to agree with you
SH: I'm jes'
SH: assumin' here tha' yer home isnae ordinarily on fire.
AH: yeah it does that
AH: i just pray really hard and it goes away
SH: Och, does it now!
SH: Tae yerself?
AH: yes
SH: I mean, God and all, righ'?
AH: right
AH: full circle
SH: And how do ye utilize yer divine will tae put tha flames ou'?
SH: Blow on i' some?
AH: no i throw holy water on it
AH: though i think i ran out a few fires ago
AH: ran out putting this cat out
SH: Och, I dunnae know wha' kinnae world tragedies a god's world would be classified as, bu'
SH: the life ye lead mus' be difficult.
AH: alas, my life is hard and the rewards are few
SH: Between stealin' and puttin' out felines.
SH: I'm assumin' taterSalad ye mentioned earlier is yer server player then?
AH: no
AH: other way around
SH: Och. So ye're still waitin'.
SH: Does that have somethin' ta do with yer
SH: seemingly imminent death by flamin'?
SH: Ye know unless ye begot a son and
SH: resurrect yerself of course.
AH: i'm not too sure
AH: you know
AH: i havent heard a meteor hit down in a while
SH: Meteor?
SH: Wha'?
AH: and all the screaming died down a while ago
SH: Is tha' a thing tha's happenin'?
AH: yeah
SH: !#%$.
AH: wow hey rude
AH: dont !#%$ swear man
SH: !#%$. Bloody !#%$' !#%$.
AH: hey now
SH: so what name should I furnish ye with? God's gonna get a little old soon.
AH: i guess you can call me Jack
SH: Och. Jack then. Nae a bad name.
AH: whats your name
AH: scottish stereotype?
SH: I mentioned i' before bu' I suppose ye probably dinnae notice in tha midst o' lampoonin' my accent.
SH: Rupert's tha name.
SH: Rupert Flammeus.
AH: Rupert
SH: Aye.
AH: that is surprisingly not as scottish as i would have expected
SH: Och, I get tha' sometimes.
SH: Och hey, tha person I was expectin' came on. I will hold ye to tha drinkin' when ye get in tha game, Jack.
SH: Best o' luck to ye in survivin' yer impending demise.
AH: yeah sure
SH: Try not tae die.
AH: good luck being useless
SH: Och, dunnae know abou' that one.

Jack sat in front of his computer for a few seconds, pondering on what to do next. The cathedral would be fine for a few more hours. It was mostly made of stone, and even the roof was a sturdy material that didn't burn that easily. He knew that there was a large supply of holy water in the sub-basement, but that would require navigating down !#%$ wooden stairs that were more than likely on fire at this point.

Jack played with the kitten in his lap, pondering what to do next. Might as well see who some of these other chums are...

Hamilton just SAT THERE, TALKING TO PEOPLE, like the DOOFUS HE IS. Also, because he has nothing better to do at the moment. I mean, he hasn't had his server player around in a while, and he lives in a half-house on a cliff overlooking a raging sea, what's he supposed to do? Climb the web to another cliff? Maybe later.

Regardless, it was at this point in time that he got a message from a new buddy. Yes, buddy is definitely the right word. 100%.

Spoiler: click to show
-- abscondingHazard [AH] began pestering extremeVelocity [EV] --

AH: who the !#%$ is this
EV: It's, uh, extremeVelocity.
EV: It says right up there.
AH: i don't give a !#%$
AH: !#%$ you
EV: But you just
EV: well, alright.
AH: are you in the game yet
EV: Yeah.
EV: I was one of the first.
EV: I am pretty good at games, yeah!
AH: holy !#%$ this is precious
EV: Th
EV: Thank you?
AH: have you seen taterSalad
AH: don't !#%$ ignore me i hate that !#%$
AH: your probably off in gameland
AH: playing with yourself
AH: hey
AH: !#%$
EV: Oh, sorry, yeah, I've seen him, he was my server player.
AH: she
EV: He's a girl?
EV: Er
EV: She?
AH: yes i can confirm that he is a she
EV: Oh my.
EV: Erm, but yeah, I was just getting distracted by things, sorry.
AH: first world problems kid
EV: I don't think this place really counts as first-world, but sure.
EV: It's actually pretty terrible here.
AH: no look see
AH: you suck
AH: and your problems are insignificant
AH: so i hate you
AH: and shut up
EV: This place is actually pretty dangerous, so, I don't think it's that insignificant!
EV: Apparently there's even spiders around here.
AH: spiders?
AH: no one gives a !#%$ about spiders are you kidding
AH: spiders are just little bugs
EV: No, I mean really big spiders.
EV: Like, really, REALLY big!
AH: yeah im over here !#%$ shaking
AH: they're still bugs, just ignore them
EV: But they're hostile!
EV: Like, really hostile.
AH: tame them
AH: you could also kill them
AH: with weapons
AH: or whatever
AH: again
AH: i dont give a !#%$ about your first world problems
EV: Well, I did make this cool keyboard-chainsaw thing recently.
EV: But that still doesn't really make them less dangerous.
EV: Even if I haven't actually fought any myself yet, but...
AH: what are you
AH: scared of spiders
EV: Well, I mean...
EV: Of course not!
EV: But these ones are pretty dangerous!
EV: I mean, yeah, of course they shouldn't be a problem for me, like you were saying!
AH: oh yeah
AH: a big tough guy like you
EV: Exactly!
AH: mister scared of itty bitty little bugs
EV: I didn't say that!
EV: I mean, they are pretty dangerous, and HORRIBLE, GODLESS KILLING MACHINES!
EV: But, I mean
EV: Like I said, I'm good at games, so it's no big deal! Yes!
EV: Yes.
AH: sounds to me like your a !#%$ baddie and you don't know how to play video games
EV: Of course not!
AH: oh
EV: I beat them all the time!
AH: so you dont know what games are
AH: but you just said
EV: I'm good at games, I swear!
AH: what the !#%$ are you doing right now kid
EV: Uh...
EV: Was just talking with some people.
EV: Because they needed help, of course!
AH: im sure
AH: and it wasnt the other way around
AH: for sure
AH: right
EV: Yes.
EV: For sure.
AH: mm hm
AH: so.
AH: let me get this completely straight
AH: right
AH: this wrap up right here
AH: okay
AH: the jist of this story is
AH: you !#%$ suck at games
EV: No!
EV: I'm great at them!
EV: I was even making a guide for one before I got into this one.
AH: oh man
AH: lets see it then
EV: Well
EV: I didn't get the chance to make it.
EV: It was going to be great, though!
AH: so
EV: And it's a game lots of people have been having issues with!
AH: you made the idea of a guide
EV: A text-based adventure game sylladex, to be specific.
AH: wow that sounds like a super !#%$ system
AH: only losers would use that
EV: It's great!
EV: I mean, it's hard to use, but it's no issue for someone like me.
AH: prove it
AH: get something out of your dex right now
EV: Uh
EV: Sure thing!

With that, Hamilton nervously looked to his sylladex. This was going to be quite the adventure, he realized. Climbing around on those webs and exploring the land sounded like a pretty nice quest in comparison right about now.

Regardless, he knew he had to do it. His dignity as a gamer was at stake.


The room is dark. Dark as the heart of every soldier here, and you are no exception. The terrorists are moving in, and your comrades are dropping like flies, and you're practically just sitting in their web, waiting to be injected by their venom. You're on the 66th floor. Fitting, since you are indeed just one number away from Hell.

What will you do?

>Reload gun.

The gun clicks loudly as you reload it, shattering the deceptively serene silence around you as it shatters hopes and dreams every day with every pull of the trigger.

This click, however, also shatters hopes and dreams, for it let the enemy find you.

You are eaten by a terrorist grue.


Well, that ended quickly.

Time to do what gamers do best: lie about your achievements.

Spoiler: click to show
EV: Yeah, I totally got something from it.
AH: what was it
EV: Uh...
EV: A magazine! Yep.
AH: what was the magazine
EV: Uh
EV: GameBro, sure.
AH: really, what issue
EV: Number 23.
AH: oh wow
AH: what a coincidence
AH: i have that issue
AH: let me turn to page 43
AH: could you read whats a the top for me
EV: Uhhh
EV: Whoops! It accidentally fell out of my house.
AH: what a shame
EV: Did I mention half my house is missing and hanging over a cliff? Because it is!
AH: first world problems kids
AH: i dont care about them
EV: But that's like the exact opposite of a first-world problem!
AH: so are you telling me that everyone has a house
EV: Well, no.
EV: Technically, I only have half a house at this point.
AH: wah wah
AH: i only have half a house
AH: talking to the guy who doesnt have a house at all
EV: Oh, I'm sorry.
AH: i bet
AH: you have a guardian too
EV: Well...
EV: Half a guardian, actually...
AH: so what you are saying is
AH: you still have one
AH: which
AH: again
AH: is more than i have
AH: and you are complaining about it to me
EV: Well, I mean...
EV: Half of one, but he said he'd be alright, but...
EV: I mean, I guess I'm sorry.
AH: man i don't need your apologies
AH: i dont need your !#%$ SYMPATHY
AH: god
EV: Alright, sorry.
AH: man im just !#%$ messin with you kid
AH: calm down
EV: Oh.
EV: Okay then, cool.
AH: dude what the !#%$ im homeless and my parents sold me, and you think thats cool? !#%$ you kid
EV: Erm
EV: I'm sorry!
AH: hahahaha
AH: jesus christ kid
AH: so when do i get to play this game
EV: Well, do you have a server player yet?
AH: no
EV: You need one of those first.
EV: I guess I could do it if you want.
AH: did you already bring someone into the game
EV: Yeah.
AH: !#%$ you can only server for one person
AH: well
AH: your only supposed to anyway
AH: you need a new disc if you wanted to server for me
EV: Oh.
EV: Right, of course!
EV: But yeah, you'll have to find someone to do it, then, I guess.
AH: so if you have half a house i guess the other half went somewhere else
EV: Oh, yeah.
EV: I mean, I don't think my sister's brought anyone in yet, but...
AH: sister huh
AH: hmm
EV: Yeah.
AH: yeah
AH: so what do you think about her
EV: Oh, she's really rad and nice.
AH: oh yeah
EV: Yeah!
AH: do you spend a lot of time together
EV: Yeah, all the time.
EV: I mean, not now, I guess...
AH: so i bet you guys do a lot of stuff together
EV: Yeah, all kinds of stuff.
EV: I help her with stuff all the time!
AH: interesting
AH: okay so this is important
AH: about how many times a day do you two make out
AH: on a scale of one to a lot
EV: What!
AH: makeouts
EV: She's my sister, I'd never make out with her!
EV: That's weird!
AH: why?
EV: Well, because... she's my sister! That's incest!
AH: and?
EV: And... that's weird!
AH: in case you havent noticed, the world is !#%$ exploded
AH: she's gonna be one of the only girls left
EV: Well, there are quite a few girls in the game with us, actually.
EV: Even before I knew taterSalad was one!
AH: like who
EV: counterfeitOrigins, I brought her into the game.
EV: And...
EV: One that became my girlfriend even!
AH: oh yeah?
EV: I mean... I was asleep, but...
AH: did she say that specifically
EV: It was real! I think...
EV: Oh, uh...
EV: Well, when I woke up, she was sitting on my chest! And we went on a walk together! And she said I was her prince even!
EV: I said I'd protect her!
EV: Oh... I said I'd protect her...
AH: great job kid your doing a fine job
AH: keep up the good !#%$
EV: Erm...
EV: Yeah, I did !#%$ that up...
AH: and just because you had a !#%$ romantic moment doesnt mean you can make out with her just yet
AH: you gotta smooth talk her
AH: look kid im pretty much an expert about this !#%$
AH: listen to me
EV: Oh really?
AH: yeah
AH: okay
AH: rule number one
AH: make sure you look like a huge !#%$ 100% of the time
AH: slick your hair back
AH: wear a leather jacket
EV: Well, I wear a hat.
AH: what kind of hat
EV: Uh...
EV: A backwards cap!
AH: mmhm
EV: I did just get a new... shirt, I think it is, from counterfeitOrigins, I don't know how well a jacket would go with it.
AH: wear it
AH: girls love !#%$ that looks dumb
AH: also make sure to make stupid faces all the time
EV: Yeah, I'm wearing it.
EV: Really?
AH: yep
EV: Like, what kind of stupid faces?
AH: the worst kinds of faces you can do
EV: That seems kind of weird, but alright.
AH: rule number two
AH: girls love it when you say you own them
AH: they love feeling like property
EV: Huh.
EV: That's also pretty weird, but I guess girls are pretty weird.
AH: yep!
AH: okay
AH: this is the most important rule
AH: make sure to give them my pesterchum and tell them that im really cool
EV: Haha, very funny.
AH: no no look kid
AH: if you say you know cool people
AH: then they will think you are cool!
EV: Oh, I guess that makes sense, actually.
EV: More than any of the other stuff, even.
EV: Thanks!
AH: it was the most important rule
AH: your welcome
EV: I'll be sure to use all of this next time.
AH: alright kiddo
AH: you better get going
AH: you have a great adventure ahead of you
EV: Oh, yeah!
AH: lots of spiders to cry about
AH: and girls to
AH: heh
EV: I'll be sure to beat them!
EV: The
EV: The spiders, not the girls.
AH: oh
AH: yeah
AH: sure
EV: I mean, unless they like that too?
EV: No, what am I saying, that's terrible!
AH: no don't hit the girls
EV: Okay, yeah, good.
AH: especially in the face dont hit them in the face
EV: Yeah, I won't.
EV: Thanks again!
EV: See you!
AH: yeah sure kid

See? I told you buddy was the right word.

Spoiler: click to show
AH: !#%$ idiot

-- abscondingHazard [AH] ceased pestering extremeVelocity [EV] --

... Yep.

Regardless, Hamilton was eager to try out these new... tactics. After a moment of thought, he decided the best course of action would be to try going to sleep.

So he plopped on his bed and did just that.

ssshh only dreams now

Ali continued walking toward the strange house, almost in a daze. It wasn't until she noticed the cat ears on her headband computer were twitching that she snapped out of it. I guess that means I have a new message.

Spoiler: click to show
-- catgirlCutie [CC] began pestering counterfeitOrigins [CO] --

CC: Hiya <3
CC: ...Are you alive?
CC: I hope you made it in a session
CC: It would be bad if you didnt </3

CO: oh no im here
CO: sorry about that
CO: this swamp is dis-orient-ing

CC: Oh you made it in!
CC: Thats good <3

CO: i cant believe you guys didnt let me in ):
CC: Were sorry!
CC: We thought that guy that told us knew you...
CC: It sure seemed like they did

CO: well its okay now i guess
CC: So tell me... who did you end up playing with?
CO: i just got thrown into a random game
CO: ive been making friends with some of the other players

CC: Thats cool!
CC: Whats it like?

CO: i dont like this world im on very much
CO: but fighting is kinda fun
CO: and meeting new people too!
CO: weve been making weapons and building houses and fighting monsters

CC: Woah really?
CO: yeah, havent you?
CC: Not exactly...
CO: what do you mean?
CC: Well
CC: Building houses is too expensive
CC: And even then there really isnt any where to build to
CC: Alchemy is also kind of expensive but its more affordable than building
CC: Fighting skeletons is the worst part
CC: Theyre really hard to kill and they dont drop much build grist

CO: build grist?
CO: dont you mean gushers?

CC: Yeah they kind of look like gushers
CO: what do you mean by skeletons?
CO: arent their other types of monsters?

CC: No just different types of skeletons
CO: thats really weird
CO: anyway im checking out this weird place
CO: so ill get back to you later
CO: next time we talk invite me to the group memo

CC: Ok see ya! <3

As Ali finished the conversation she realized she was at the door to the green building. I guess I'm not seeing things.

Despite being on an alien world without other humans, she still felt compelled to knock on the door.


O-oh, my, this won't do. I think Imagethe Imagemaster is not ready for company. Not yet.

Spoiler: click to show
A single rap-rap-rap echoes through the hill.
The echoes produce a slight thrill
For aside from them, the land felt...still.

Ali could look around, but would notice nothing but silence. This log felt unneeded, as only the readerImage would see it. As if, for the moment, the time was not yet here for this building to become relevant.

The silence would continue for a long time. Yet, the building definitely felt it was...occupied. Would Ali be content to continue her investigation into this building? Would the occupier open up with frequent harrassment, with repeated annoyance, with a lady hell bent on finding the truth within this mysterious mansion of unknown machinations?Image

((OOC: Maybe. Shall we find out, dear reader?Image
Oh shut up, I am aware.))


Alex noticed his conversational partner had stopped responding mid-sentence. As troubling as this would normally be, he just assumed something had came up.

The previous talk with trivialCelebration had him thinking about his Scottish friend, the supposed other player. He messaged him to see whats up.

SH: How's it been so far?
AP: Pretty cool. Got this sandy maze place.
AP: What about you? Thought you said we were gonna meet.
SH: Och, a maze. Tha' sounds kind of interestin'.
SH: Och I thought so myself
SH: although mebbe I dunnae know thes game as well as I thought.
SH: I was actually lookin' to speak with ye myself, boyo.
SH: Jes' got done takin' over a fortress!
SH: Though' it'd be a good time ta check in.
SH: Ye know before the celebratory grogdrinkin'.
AP: So are you in my session then?
SH: Aye, lad.
AP: Cause I guess you didn't connect to anyone?
AP: Oh, alright then.
SH: I did nae, this is true.
SH: Although I confess this is a wee bit strange.
SH: Are ye tha only one in the game?
AP: Uh, I guess most of us are.
SH: ...Curious.
AP: Yeah so, you remember that beastie I was fighting?
SH: Och, right, I totally forgot!
SH: How did tha' go? Did yae rip it a new !#%$?
AP: Haha thought I did, but it wasn't as down as I thought.
AP: I guess its my sprite now.
SH: ...Och. Hahahahaha. Must be quite a sprite I'll bet.
AP: Yeah its also...
AP: Part monkey I guess?
AP: Damn things keep annoying me.
SH: ...Ha. A monkey and a beastie.
SH: An interestin' combination.
SH: I suppose tha's one way ta end a rivalry.
AP: Hes... still a trouble maker.
AP: Just a less deadly one.
SH: A troublemaker, hmm? I suppose tha's possible.
SH: Mine's a bi' less fer tha hijinks.
SH: More of a dignified sort o'
AP: Yeah, I getcha.
SH: if I do say so myself if I can call myself tha' yet
SH: vice-general.
AP: So how are we gonna meet anyway?
AP: After the day I've been having
AP: Booze is sounding pretty great.
SH: Ye know, I dunno. I'd certainly like tae. I wonder if our areas are connected somehow.
SH: Although I confess
SH: I've yet ta here of any sort o' desert.
SH: Or even sand.
SH: Still trees, castles, an' thes bloody fog as far as the eye can see.
AP: I haven't got any of that either.
AP: And I guess other people have got their own places.
SH: Huh.
SH: Curiouser and curiouser.
SH: I confess other than tha battle I jes' waged
SH: thes game doesnae quite seem to operate as I expected it might.
AP: I'm still trying to figure out what the goal is.
AP: Best idea I got involves these portals over my house.
SH: Och I guess a maze wouldnae have a ready goal, huh.
SH: Portals huh?
SH: I dunnae know anythin' about that.
SH: Sounds kinda excitin'.
AP: I've yet to check it out.
AP: My house is on this big pillar.
AP: It overlooks everything.
SH: Ha. A precarious position then, huh?
SH: Ye're okay though, righ'?
SH: It's nae abou' ta fall?
AP: A little battered, but no worse for the wear.
SH: Whew.
AP: And the house is perched fine too.
SH: Sorry, jes' talked ta someone who was blabbin' about meteors and his house on fire.
SH: Was almos' like a woman fer a momen' there.
AP: Oh !#%$, that sounds pretty bad.
AP: He okay?
SH: I'll say. Dunnae remember any of tha' sorta thing myself.
SH: Seems ta be in good shape.
SH: Waitin' on his server player.
SH: Hope he gets through to him soon.
SH: If nae, then I cannae drink his hooded ass under tha table!
AP: He's probably waiting on my client player to connect.
AP: I'm not really sure what happened to him.
AP: I think I'm having problems with the viewing window.
SH: Is tha' so? Soun's a wee bit rough of a game fer ye lot.
AP: Haha, yeah.
SH: Perhaps it's fer tha best I dinnae have ta wrangle with thes.
SH: 's far as I can tell, my goal doesnae involve any portals or the like
SH: apparently there's some beastie or somethin' of tha like out there
SH: goes by tha name
SH: Balor
AP: Wow, sounds hardcore dude.
SH: and apparently I got ta fight him or somethin' of tha' sort after I conquer enough of the people here.
SH: Or befriend them through combat.
SH: Dunnae wanna soun' like
SH: an iron-fisted tyrant here, har!
AP: Maybe I'll be able to help if I figure out a way over there.
AP: I'm about to head out actually.
AP: I'm just making some weapons and !#%$.
SH: Och, what kind o' weapons?
SH: Fer tha' matter
SH: makin' weapons? I dinnae know ye were a blacksmith.
AP: I'm just mixing my bat with things and seeing what happens.

SH: Machines? Huh. I dinnae know those things were usable.

Alex gathered his weapons and then began attempting to ascend what parts of the house TC built while they were still online.

He's back and slower than ever.

Location: Neptune

Hamilton jolted awake, jerking upright as he tried to call out the name of his "girlfriend," only to realize he still didn't even know it. With a frown, he stood up, looking around to find himself in the same street he was in with her last time. At least, he assumed so. They all looked purple and samey to him. The girl herself, however, was nowhere to be found, nor was anyone, for that matter.

It was then that Hamilton finally noticed the one thing that did accompany him on this street: a post-it note attached to his chest. After a bit of fiddling in trying to grab it with his closed sleeves (those spider-leg sleeves never stopped being a thing), he quickly read over it.

It was... less than pleasant.

I'd say Hamilton donned a depressed expression, but no, he already had one. It didn't intensify, either, no: his face did not move one bit. Indeed, it stayed perfectly still, staring at the note. His eyes did not move over it, no, he had easily finished reading it already. He simply... stared. Eventually, however, there was one change: his eyes grew watery.

"Way to screw it up, loser."

Surprised, Hamilton stood up, turned around, wiped his eyes, and pocketed the note, all in one motion. His surprised didn't stop there, however, for the source of voice was quite alarming in itself.

It was himself.

Albeit considerably... cooler. He wore a slick leather jacket combined with the crazy belt shirt Hamilton wore as his awake (?) self, but it looked far less crazy on this individual, seeming much more composed as it buckled the two sides of the jacket together, while still remaining open like a cool guy. The individual, the cool guy also adorned some roughed-up jeans, an incredibly rad pair of shades, and most eye-catching of all (at least to Hamilton) was his hat. It was the same propeller cap as his own, worn backwards and all, but rather than the faded vivid colors his own had, the Cool Guy's hat was a sleek black.

"Yeah, I know I look swag as !#%$, but seriously, take that goofy look off your face, it's embarrassing." the cool guy said with a smirk.

Oh man. Hamilton didn't even know what swag was, but it sounded amazing.

The cool guy shook his head with a sigh, but his smirk stayed ever-present all the same as he went on, "Probably is better that you keep silent, less chance of saying something stupid that way." The cool guy looked back up towards Hamilton, now, his smirk evaporating in favor of a much more serious expression, now speaking much more sternly with, "Seriously, though you !#%$ up with her. Just like you've !#%$ up with pretty much everyone. Your server player abandoned you, and you didn't even know she was a girl. Hell, that's probably WHY she abandoned you! You nearly killed counterfeitOrigins with your !#%$ building, and then made her use some stupid gimmicky !#%$, and now she's no doubt running off to abandon you, too. And that's not even mentioning how even your sister's gone. Your damn SISTER! Jesus, it's great that that angry dude helped you out so much, but it's probably too late now. You're already all alone."

Hamilton simply stood there, taking it. His solemn expression certainly returned, and it wasn't long before the tears started to also make their grand reappearance. Before they could leak out, though, they were wiped away once again as he took a much more confidant-looking stance, stepping forward with one fit and raising a fist as his face grew angry. "That's not true!" he shouted, "That's... not true."

The cool guy sighed and shook his head once again, the smirk also making its own grand reappearance. Looking up again, he answered, "I guess you're right. Sure as Hell's not by choice, though." With that, he pointed straight up.

Confused, Hamilton looked upwards. Upon seeing what the cool guy was referencing, he stumbled back on to his bottom, his face lighting up with shock. Horrorterrors.

The cool guy chuckled. "Relax, they're harmless. As far as you're concerned, at least." he explained, "Go ahead, try to talk to them."

Confused and still a little shocked, Hamilton let out a meek, "... Hello?" to the sky.

In reply, it seemed as though all the horrorterrors looked in unison directly at him. Hamilton's eyes widened, and if he could, he would've fallen back again. After a moment of complete silence, however, they all seemed to turn away in unison.

"Exactly." the cool guy said, crossing his arms, "Not even monsters want to associate themselves with someone as pathetic as you."

And thus, Hamilton's expression returned once again to its solemn state. After another moment of staring into the sky, he looked back down to the cool guy. "What do I do, then?" he asked, his voice devoid of emotion.

"My advice?" the cool guy rhetorically asked, holding out his arms as if he were about to shrug, "Kill yourself."

Hamilton winced at that... but he did not object. "How would I even do that?" he went on to ask.

The cool guy's smirk returned stronger than ever as he moved his fingers into a snapping position, then answered with, "Well, there's a !#%$ of ways, but I know the perfect one for you. First, though, we need to..." Snap.


"... wake up."

Suddenly, Hamilton jolted awake for about the hundredth time today, finding himself back in his bed in the waking (?) world. The cool guy, however, was still there, standing right next to the bed. Not wasting another moment, he grabbed Hamilton by the shoulder, pulling him up and dragging him along into the hallway, stopping at where the house had split. "Take a good look." he said, placing Hamilton in front of himself.

And a good look Hamilton did indeed take. Water, cliffs, webbing... what else was there to see? Wait... were those birds in the water? They were! He hadn't noticed those before. Still, though, Hamilton wasn't sure what he was supposed to see in a bunch of drowned birds.

"For you're going to be sleeping with the birdies." the cool guy finished, pushing Hamilton off the edge.

Hamilton tried his best to recompose himself from the shock of the push, feeling a bit annoyed. That feeling evaporated in an instant, though, when his brain finally realized what just happened, leading to nothing short of an ear-splitting scream. As he fell, though, Hamilton saw something below him, a bit off to the side. It was coming up towards right below him, though, and quickly, leaving a silvery trail behind it. "Wait, is that the abominable--" he began to think, but quickly shook his head as he reached his hands out towards the trail, grabbing on to it as he found himself reaching it much more quickly than he realized.

Fortunately for Hamilton, this trail was incredibly sticky, doing most the gripping for him, since he'd no doubt slip off it with how fast he was going, although he found himself still going down all the same. He was starting to arc, now, though--indeed, he was swinging. The confusion of the trail's appearance finally moving aside, Hamilton was quick to go right back to that horrible scream as he realized he was still far from safe and still moving incredibly fast. As he began to straighten up from the swing's arc, he realized he was running out of space between him and the water, and fast, which did nothing to alleviate his scream--quite the opposite, really. As the swing reached the middle of its arc, Hamilton closed his eyes shut tight, feeling his feet skid the water. The feeling leaving, he peaked out of one eye (still screaming, at that), finding himself now on the up-swing. Still didn't stop the screaming, though.

A few more moments of this later, Hamilton finally found himself swinging right over another cliff, the momentum finally stopping him just over it, and the web (yeah, I didn't mention it was web, but who am I trying to kid, you know it's web) loosening out just enough for him to gently fall right on to it. Well, relatively gently--his back was probably going to be feeling that for a while, but he wasn't splattered like a bug.

"Yeah, this'll do." the cool guy said, suddenly standing right over Hamilton. As he looked around, Hamilton realized he was laying on a strange structure: it was some kind of large stone slab that vaguely resembled a bed, four tall poles on each corner. Most curious of all, though, was that it was pink in color. "So you gonna off yourself or what?" the cool guy asked, getting a bit impatient.

Hamilton simply stared for a moment with a look of bewilderment before finally working up the will to say, "Wha--, I survived the fall, how would I even kill myself at this point?"

The cool guy rolled his eyes, letting out another sigh. "You have a weapon, right? It's about time it saw some use." he replied, sounding annoyed.

"Oh... yeah..." Hamilton practically muttered, pulling out his chainsaw keyboard. After a slight hesitation, he yanked on the cord, revving it up. The next moment seemed to last for an eternity, the chainsaw keyboard tearing at the air mere inches above Hamilton. After what at least felt like infinite deliberation, he finally...

... threw the keyboard aside, sitting up on the mockery of a bed. "N-no!" he shouted, tears once again forming in his eyes, but this time actually leaking down his face, even if it was impossible to tell amongst all the rain. "I won't do it!" he continued to shout, letting out a sob.

The cool guy let out yet another sigh, this one far heavier than any of his previous ones. "I guess I should've known you're too pathetic to even kill yourself." he said with audible disappointment, turning and walking away.

"W-wait!" Hamilton shouted with a sniffle, "Who even are you?! And how am I supposed to even get back from here?!"

The cool guy stopped in his tracks, letting out a chuckle. "Now you ask." he began. "You can call me Doctor Funtimes. And you're still attached to that web, I'm sure you can climb back or something, even you couldn't manage to fall from that thing." he explained, his voice suddenly back to its usual apathetic tone, "But enough of that. Smell ya later."

And with that, Doctor Funtimes jumped off the edge of the cliff, at which Hamilton simply stared.

Stared, and cried.

Ali could look around, but would notice nothing but silence. This log felt unneeded, as only the readerImage would see it. As if, for the moment, the time was not yet here for this building to become relevant.

The silence would continue for a long time. Yet, the building definitely felt it was...occupied. Would Ali be content to continue her investigation into this building?

Ali stood at the door for a moment or so before realizing that no one would answer.

What a strange place, she thought.

Behind the 'mysterious mansion of unknown machinations' the young girl found a small back door. She walked up to it and knocked once again, thinking she will have better lu--

She would not feel the gauze being tenderly adjusted over her small wound.

Time is an imovable hourglass. And so too is the lifetime of every thing, living and not, like one.

It flows like sand eternally. And as with all hourglasses, only a limited amount of sand exists. Over time, less and less sand is able to move...until eventually, even the seemingly limitless hourglass of the universe is snuffed out.

But what if the hourglass was not imovable? What if one could, with a single grasp of a mighty hand, pick up their hourglass?

If one could turn the tides of fate, if one could reverse the hourglass of time...then they would be as immortals.

And if one could recieve access to every hourglass...

Then they would be unto a god.

How was it that she had gotten here?

It had been a normal day in the life of HEATHER MILES. She was relaxing like she tended too when her sister be gone. She was a bit more excited than usual, though, since her sis was going to also bring her freshly arrived game with her. And so it did arrive.

But what a mess it had been after that! Falling moon rocks, silly boys, Internet Tough Guys who may or may not be hardened criminals of the highest caliber and, of course, wild and reckless gunplay that could easily result in the irrevocable loss of life simply as a lifestyle choice.

And thus was how we arrived here...


What happened? Heather asked herself. She had shot that weird hourglass, which she noted was now gone, there was a bright flash and...

Laptopsprite continues to just kind of stand around. Well, nothing seems to have happened. Maybe you should go look outside your w-

...A desert?

She rushes outside of her door, pistol at the ready, as this is all something gratuitously suspicious that should not be taken lightly or unarmed. Checking her blindspots as she advanced, she came to the front door, opening it up...

The Land of Sand and Glass

...This is...

Wind blows, kicking sand into her face, Heather bringing her arm to attempt and shield her eyes. What the hell was a desert doing in New York?

This was a serious issue. A serious issue that required serious action. With serious thinking. The kind of serious thinking one can't do while sand blows in their face and they're panicking. And so Heather ran back to her room at a breakneck pace, quickly devouring some packs of gushers. This reminded her of her conversation with Internet Tough Guy. This also reminded her of the fact that that piping still needed to be fixed.

Which then reminded her, oh yeah, she should probably at least tell that guy she was okay. Good thing her computer was right there!

AH: !#%$
TS: Huh. I see.
AH: well whatever no use whining about it now
AH: your in the game
AH: hey did your sister or whoever make it in?
TS: I believe so. She was in the house, at least. I haven't checked yet.
TS: I basically ran outside, freaked out, ate some gushers and came in to tell you, yeah hey I'm alive.
AH: hm
AH: well you should assess that situation in a bit
AH: i heard from one of the other chumps that there are some enemies in the game
TS: Hm.
TS: I should take some spare ammunition, then. Just in case.
-- taterSalad [TS] opens a drawer in her desk the computer on. That is far too much spare ammunition for a sane young adult person to keep in their desk. --
AH: seems legit
TS: And how is everything on your end?
-- taterSalad [TS] grabs about 5 spare cartridges to bring with her. --
AH: burning to death, etc
AH: you know, great stuff
AH: still trying to figure out how i'm gonna get into this game
TS: I presume you just need to find somebody to play with you. Anyone will work.
AH: can i get you to play with me
TS: I don't think so, since I'm a player already.
AH: s'okay
AH: maybe we can play with each other later
TS: I think you need a lot more practice before you're ready for this difficulty level.
AH: yeah whatever kid
AH: anyway
AH: once your done pretending you know what your doing grabbing 9mm ammo for a 10mm gun
AH: you should go over to that alchewhatever machine
-- taterSalad [TS] checks her ammo to make sure she did, in fact, get the right ammo. --
TS: What does it even do?
AH: well
AH: you can clone stuff first off
AH: and make more gushers by deleting stuff
AH: you can also
AH: like
AH: combine your cards
AH: i
AH: dont really know what that means
AH: i just remember my mentor talking about, and I quote
AH: "stupid card !#%$ no one cared about"

TS: I will muck around with it then. And check on my sister.
AH: right
AH: hey so
AH: you are alright, right
AH: you dont have like

AH: or you dont have 6 toes now
AH: because if you havent !#%$ noticed kid
AH: your in the middle of a desert
AH: and you used to be in new york
TS: I seem to be unharmed.
AH: you sure
TS: Yeah.
AH: i think
TS: I thought you weren't worried? :)
AH: you should get undressed
AH: and we can make sure you are ok
-- taterSalad [TS] eyeroll. --

AH: don't call me dog
TS: Alright.
AH: anyway
AH: hey i want to test something
TS: What is it?
AH: get up on the alchething
AH: i want to see if i can delete you
TS: ...
TS: That seems horribly dangerous.
AH: humor me
TS: Assure me I'll be undeleted first.
TS: I like existing.
AH: i'm not actually going to do it
AH: i want to see if i have the option to
TS: Okay, sure, why not.
AH: i want to see what this game does
-- taterSalad [TS] TO THE ALCHETHING! --
AH: hm
AH: thats interesting
AH: so the game recognizes that you are a player, and won't allow me to delete you
AH: man
AH: i just wanted to get you up here so i could delete your clothes, but i cant do that either
TS: Seems logical. It'd be bad if the players all just deleted each other.
TS: I presume you can't unless they're already off.
AH: yeah
TS: Did you try selecting the clothes and not me?
AH: it treats you as one entity
TS: Ah.
TS: ...
AH: probably why this game is still a beta
TS: Why did I just try to help you with that, anyway?
AH: the interface is a little !#%$
AH: well
AH: it helps me realize what i can and cant do with this system
AH: for instance
AH: i can't just carry you everywhere
AH: and i cant see too far out from your house
AH: so if you go too far away, your on your own
TS: Hm. I see.
AH: i also can't
AH: just encase you in block
AH: or seal off any rooms you are in
TS: Presumably because it would make the game unwinnable.
AH: yeah
AH: but this is just basic game stuff
AH: okay look
AH: i'm gonna start building your house upwards
AH: because theres a glowy up there
TS: Can you fix the water problem?
TS: I'd prefer not to be flooded.
AH: yeah i got it
-- abscondingHazard [AH] a loud crashing sound is heard from the bathroom, and the tub is set next to Heather --
AH: !#%$
TS: ...
TS: You're a horrible plumber.
-- abscondingHazard [AH] cleans the bathroom up --
AH: okay so
AH: there
AH: uh
AH: sans a few working
AH: items
AH: the bathroom is fixed
TS: We can worry about those... later.
AH: you need to start crafting an arsenal
AH: hang on
AH: i have a few explosive items laying around
AH: let me send you a txt file of all the captchas
AH: oh !#%$
AH: i have a tank shell?
AH: where did this come from
TS: A tank, I'm guessing.
AH: yeah uh
AH: i totally fought one of those
AH: and beat it
AH: one handed
TS: With a box of scraps.
AH: okay here
-- abscondingHazard [AH] sends file !#%$.txt --
-- taterSalad [TS] recieves it. --
TS: Thank you.
AH: i added a few codes for some clothes too
AH: some designer stuff
AH: you know, things i had lying around
TS: They're going to be horribly sexual, I presume.
AH: well
AH: no actually
AH: well okay there is one outfit that is basically strings
AH: but
AH: the rest is all main brand designer !#%$
AH: that i
AH: "bought"
AH: for just such an occasion
TS: That is, of course, the first thing somebody would buy for...I dunno, moon rock death.
-- taterSalad [TS] is looking out a window as they talk now. --
AH: well
AH: i was thinking more of
AH: a girl needs new threads so she doesnt look like she just stepped out of a noir film
AH: whats so interesting out there
TS: Well, the sky is like...daytime, but the only thing out is the moon.
TS: It's weird.
TS: Not to mention it looks shattered...it's like somebody painted a sky on glass.
AH: i cant see it
AH: maybe it is glass?
TS: It could be.
TS: ...Anyway, thanks for the clothes. I'll see what they look like, I guess.
TS: Might as well do that now.
TS: We have a good supply of gushers, right?
AH: uhhhhh
AH: yeah
AH: for some reason
AH: your bed gave us loads of gushers
TS: Alright. Let's see here...
-- taterSalad [TS] looks at some of the codes. Quick question: Are the codes marked or is it just INPUT !#%$ AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS? --
AH: i didnt mark any !#%$ kid, its all you
AH: go nuts
AH: also im hoping you try them all on
AH: every last one
TS: You just want to see the one that's strings.
AH: no
AH: yes
TS: Alright, well, here goes...uh...something.
-- taterSalad [TS] slaps the captcha code in to create something. She, of course, creates one of the OUTFITS first. In particular, she creates the DARK STRINGED BIKINI. In normal Homestuck alchemania, the outfit is of course previewed on it's user and kept on until another outfit is put on. Or it's changed. --
TS: ...
AH: screenshot
TS: Why would you need a screenshot?
AH: uh
TS: Oh, I suppose you mean you taking one.
AH: yeah
AH: i mean
AH: no
AH: never
AH: thats
AH: nah
AH: not me
TS: I suppose I have something for if I run into any water in this place, though.
AH: god damn you do
AH: i mean
AH: yeah whatever
-- taterSalad [TS] laughs. --
TS: You don't know how to actually react to this, do you?
AH: i'm trying to not be a !#%$ right now
AH: mostly because this could very well be the last thing i see before dying to meteors
AH: just savoring the moment kid, thats all
TS: I see. Well, anyway, next code...
-- taterSalad [TS] the next code creates a beautiful, somewhat sparkly, long black dress. Heather whistles. --
TS: This is nice. Not very practical, but nice.
AH: oh
AH: yeah uh
AH: that one is
AH: special
TS: Special, hm?
AH: yeah uh
AH: nevermind
AH: its nothing
TS: No, go on.
TS: I'm interested.
AH: ugh
-- taterSalad [TS] she even does the interested eyebrow raise. --
AH: look
AH: i'm a theif
AH: i steal !#%$
AH: thief
AH: whatever
AH: i
AH: didnt steal that dress
AH: i bought it
AH: with money that i earned
AH: alright
AH: thats it
TS: That's it?
AH: well
AH: its
AH: its a nice dress
AH: whatever
TS: Did you buy it for someone?
AH: no
AH: look
AH: just put on the next damn thing
AH: !#%$
AH: nosy detectives
TS: Well, it is my job to be nosy.
-- taterSalad [TS] NEXT CAPTCHA PRODUCES...a tank shell. --
AH: heh
TS: ...Hm. You said something about combining cards, right?
AH: yeah
AH: i bet you can make like
AH: tank 10mm bullets
TS: I'm going to try something stupid.
TS: Let's see...
-- taterSalad [TS] combines the TANK SHELL and the LONG BLACK DRESS to create...the TANK SHELL DRESS. It's a dress made out of a bunch of small tank shells. --
AH: hm
AH: i bet
AH: if you spin really fast
AH: you can throw those everywhere
AH: and it wont backfire and explode on you
TS: Let's not test that theory.
-- taterSalad [TS] in goes another code. It creates a slick skirt, a sweet black shirt and a kickass jacket. --
AH: huh
AH: i forgot about that outfit combo
TS: It's pretty nice.
TS: Seems great for killin' some...whatever the enemies in this game are.
AH: yeah, you got me kid
AH: all i know is they get stonger
AH: stronger
AH: let me just continue to miss all my keys
TS: Well, hopefully I can level fast enough to keep pace.
-- taterSalad [TS] the next code creates some...goggles. They look useful for keeping sand out of her eyes. --
AH: sweet goggles
AH: i bet you can find a hat to combo those with
TS: ...Hm. I was actually thinking of something else.
TS: Excuse me a moment.
-- taterSalad [TS] leaves the alchemiter room. --
-- taterSalad [TS] captchas her computer, checks the code, then uncaptchas it. She returns to the room, combining the COMPUTER and the GOGGLES to create the COMPUGOGGLES. --
TS: Sweet. Portable.
AH: put them on
-- taterSalad [TS] is already wearing them! --
TS: Bluh!
-- taterSalad [TS] turns the brightness down. --
AH: hehehe
TS: Very funny.
-- taterSalad [TS] the next few codes are some of those explosive items Jack sent her. --
AH: make yourself some different kinds of bullets
AH: or
AH: just use the explosives
TS: Explosive bullets.
AH: yep
-- taterSalad [TS] and thus began the melding of bullet and boom. --
-- taterSalad [TS] might be having a bit too much fun making these. --
AH: yeah you sure as hell look like you are having fun
AH: but just remember
AH: you are on somewhat of a clock here
TS: Yes, yes.
AH: i've finished building a few tiers to your house
AH: so you can go look at the glowy in the sky
AH: or
AH: you can go explore outside your house
AH: whichever
TS: Exploring is probably important.
TS: They wouldn't give you a big, open world like this if you weren't meant to explore it.
AH: maybe
AH: to be honest
AH: it just looks like empty desert to me
-- taterSalad [TS] while talking gets the captcha code to one of her pistols. She combines it and the COMPUGOGGLES to... create the COMPUGOGGLE PISTOLS. They have a targetting system built in to the goggles! --
TS: There's some glass stuff, too.
AH: pff
AH: you should first probably check on your sister
TS: Right, yes.
TS: And you should get back on, you know, not dying a fiery death.
