Beach
The Beach of Pebble Beach is a large spanning area of tan sand that reaches for about a mile in both directions. Since the weather here is almost always great, the place is packed. The tan sand feels very nice under your feet (or tentacles or whatever) as you walk across it. Entire families have set up camp here with their towels spread all over the place. Towards the north you see more of the beach and sand dunes, an area that appears to be more populated with teenagers then anywhere else. To the south you can see a large restaurant that people are often coming and going from. Up on a small hill overlooking the beach is a Lifeguard shack with a little giftshop underneath it.

Minthe blinks, "What're you talking about, he's not? Of course he is! He wouldn't /say/ he was a 'legitimate business man' if he wasn't! That'd be dishonest!"

Marius blinks, "But I was under the impression the only non-legitimate business men were all back home. Not here on Earth, surely..."

Jill just looks between the three of you, sweatdrops. "Riiiiight. And I have this timeshare in Ravenloft I'd like to sell you cheap."

Anne wanders out onto the beach, hands in her pockets, yawning quietly.

Vern falls back into the sand, hrming. "So... He's not a 'legitimate business man'... Which makes him a... Uhm, I know this... Uhr... Crook! A crook, that's it!" He grins, "My Dad's a crook!"

Minthe blinks, "Why would anyone do business with a non-legitimate business man? It seems like you'd be better off with a legitimate one, like Vern's dad," she blinks at Jill, "A Time Chair?! Really?! Cool! How much?!"

Marius blinks, "A crook? You mean your father's like one of those guys with striped-t-shirts and a bag with a dollar sign on it?" He blinks, "Wow! I thought they were extinct!"

Jill just holds her head in her hands. "You're all aliens... you don't know any better..."

Anne spies the little group and wanders over curiously.

Vern sits up quickly. "Hey! I'm a human!" He blinks, "Uhm... Not that there's anything wrong with being alien an' all."

Minthe uhms, "Well... yeah, but whatever planet you're from, a Time Chair would be awesome... you could go into the future and get next year's fashions! Uhm... 'cept on my planet, it's still just gonna be seaweed... like every year... yeah... they don't need a Time Chair."

Marius blinkblinks, "Heeeeey!" he says, "And what's wrong with being an alien? We're all the same! Sure, I was hatched from an egg, I turn into a fifty-foot beast when angry and I happen to have spiky hair, no ears, pink skin, no bellybutton, and my ancestors were lizards instead of monkeys, but... we're still all the same!"

Jill looks up, a little exasperated. "A 'time share', cute stuff, not a 'time chair'."

Anne blinks confusedly, "Uh... hi..."

Vern looks at Marius, then looks down quietly. "I wish I could turn into a fifty footed beast..."

Minthe ohs... then looks follows Anne into confusion, "Time /share?/ So, what? Two people who share the same body, but only get to control it half the time? No... that'd be 'body share,' wouldn't it?

Jill looks a little resigned. "No, a 'time share' is when multiple people pay for the same house, but only spend time in it during certain times of the year."

Fri Jun 18 03:33:33 2004

Marius blinkblinks, "So what you're saying is that if Volkius and I, since we share the same form when we're a monster, would be forced to both pay for a house and separate into two different bodies, and he would live in this house one part of the year and I would the other?" He hmms, "What's the point of that?"

Anne blinks at Jill, "So... they're homeless for part of the year?"

Minthe blinks, "Yeah, personally, I think I'd rather have the Time Chair."

Vern tries to shake his head, only marginally successful. "No... It's like a house at the ski slopes or something. A holiday home."

Jill sweatdrops. "Surprisingly enough, Vern seems to have it right."

Anne blinks again, "Uhm... so... they'd only have a home during the holidays?"

Marius blinks, "But... um... we have a problem. I don't know how to ski, and Volkius certainly doesn't. In fact... if he were to ski, it would be a disaster for whatever's at the bottom of the hill... trees, houses, cities, that sort of thing."

Jill shakes her head. "No, no, no, that's not it at all. Can we please just drop it? I'm getting a migraine."

Minthe nods, comprehension finally dawning, "Oh... OK, I get it now," she says, finally satisfied. Then she looks confused again. "Wait. Why do you want to sell me /that?/"

Anne glances at Minthe, "Maybe she wants to take your house during the holidays."

Vern gives Jill a delayed thumbs up. Then blinks, "Hey! You were insulting me!" ... And Vern's razor sharp mind springs into action.

Marius blinks, "Yeah, let's. It disturbs me that there's a logical concept I don't understand."

Jill facepalms again. "I wasn't insulting you, Vern, I was complimenting you."

Minthe shakes her head to Anne, "No... I don't have a house. Why does selling me a time share insult Vern? Did you want it Vern?"

Anne nodnods, "That's the point. Maybe she's selling you another one so when you go for the holidays, you won't have one when you come back."

Marius blinks, "And what about me and Volkius? We're the ones who share the same body, so we /need/ it!"

Vern shakes his head, "Nuhuh. You said surprising. I heard" He folds his arms crossly.

Jill holds out both hands, and shouts out, "PLEASE! QUIET!"

Minthe eeps! Quietly.

Marius blinkblinks, "But... but... but I'm gonna be homeless..." he protests.

Anne quiets down, but only for a few moments. She shakes her head at Marius, "Nuh uh... it's Minthe that'll be homeless!"

Minthe shakes her head, "I already /am/ homeless! Least this way I'd have someplace nice to go for the holidays... I mean... assuming this Ravenloft place is nice around the holidays. What am I saying, Jill's selling it to me. Of /course/ it's nice... Oh... right. Quiet. Sorry."

Jill starts up with her explanations. "It was surprising that you got it, Vern, because for a few seconds there I thought I was speaking a foreign language. That's all."

Marius blinks, "But where are Volkius and I going to stay? According to this time share theory, all people sharing the same body must find a new place to live at certain times of the year, and without one, since it was given away... we have nowhere to go!" Wow. Somebody garbled the message.

Vern hmmphs quietly, but rather then appearing angry, he looks puzzled.

Anne just blinks at Marius.

Jill turns back to the rest of the assembled group. "As for timeshares: in this *specific instance*, they are theoretical *second* homes that one only has access to for limited periods of time. Nothing more, nothing less."

Anne nods to Jill, "Uh huh... then someone comes and steals your first one while you're away."

Fri Jun 18 03:58:34 2004

Minthe nods, "Theoretical? Doesn't that mean, not real? I think I'd rather have a 'legitmate' time share."

Marius blinks, "So we can live in /fake/ houses?" he muses, "Oh well... that fixes things a little."

Minthe blinks, "Whoa...Should people who live in fake glass houses, not throw fake stones?" she looks a little awed at the thought... "Sorry... you were saying, Jill?"

Jill continues on, getting slightly winded. "One does not steal your first home. As I said, nothing more." Closing her eyes, she fights to control the laughter threatening to hijack her momentum. Presently, she continues. "Now, 'Ravenloft' is a mystical (and fictionary) land filled with hordes upon hordes of the undead. It is not a very nice place to live. Now, my statement that 'I have a timeshare in Ravenloft I'd like to sell you' was a cynical and sarcastic observation, as opposed to an earnest offer. I *think* that should cover it."

Anne blinks, "What's wrong with undead? Hordes doesn't sound very nice, but I would think one would /want/ to be undead. Otherwise you'd be dead. And that wouldn't be good."

Marius nods, "So you want Minthe, Volkius and I to move to this Ravenloft place and destroy the hordes of the undead in order to /make/ them dead?" He blinks, "But that's unfair prejudice against people who aren't dead!"

Jill takes a deep breath. "Not quite. It's unfair prejudice against people who eat the flesh of the living for fun." She blinks. That could be interpreted badly. "You see, the undead eat the flesh of the living for fun."

Minthe knits her brow in concentration... "So... you want to sell me, a theoretical part-time home, in a fictional not very nice place... because why?"

Vern shakes his head. "Nuhuh, what about vampires?" He ahems quietly, and quickly goes back to staring at the sky while pretending to be cross.

Jill grits her teeth lightly. "I don't, that's the whole point." She looks sharply at Vern all of a sudden. "Vampires drink the blood of the living. Close enough. And you AREN'T HELPING."

Marius shakes his head, "I do /not/!" he protests, "And neither do any of these other non-dead people! This is an /injustice/!"

Anne blinks, "I'm not dead so I'm undead and I don't eat people for fun. That's just not nice." She glances at Minthe, "Do you eat people for fun?"

Minthe makes a fussy face, "I don't eat any kind of land-meat."

Jill is close to the point of either weeping or destroying things in a rage. It's touch to tell. "Undead, not non-dead. The undead are people and/or creatures that are dead and animated in a vicious mockery of life. It's why they're called 'undead' and not 'alive'."

Vern blinkblinks, sitting up quickly. "I'm supposed to be helping with what now?" he asks incredulously.

Minthe slaps her forehead, "Ohhhhhh! So they're cartoons!"

Marius blinks, "Dead cartoons? Well, I know, they're not as fun as the ones right now, but... I don't see why they need to be destroyed. I mean... um..." He covers his mouth with his hand, "Oops."

Jill turns as red as her hair, and all splotchy. Taking heavy breaths, she adds, "They are only occasionally cartoons." She debates whipping out her three five Monster Manual to help explain this, but ultimately, that would only add to the problem.

Anne blinks, "Now... that doesn't make sense. You humans have strange ways of saying stuff sometimes."

Minthe nods, and looks up at the street, "Now I wanna go watch cartoons..."

Jill does reach into her bag, fishing around spasmically. "Stranger than I previously thought."

Vern has that confused look about him as he lays back down. "Oh-kaaaay..."

Marius also looks quite confused, "Um... riiiiight."

Anne blinks, "Uhm, well, okay..."

Minthe nods, "Bugs Bunny, I think... I like him. 'Cept at Easter time," she shudders.

Jill pulls out a magazine from her bag, and calmly says, "Excuse me a moment." HOlding up the magazine to hide her face, she screams, loud, large, and psychotic. It's enough to Scare People (+2), and in fact a few are.

Fri Jun 18 04:23:37 2004

Anne blinks at Minthe and sniffles, "What'd you have to bring that up for? Now I'm all sad..." When Jill screams, she eeeks and dives to hide behind a pile of sand. No matter that the sand isn't more than a foot high.

Minthe eeeps! and jumps back behind Marius! "OK! OK! Daffy Duck! I'm open!"

Marius blinkblinks as Jill screams, curling into a ball and covering his head up with his hands, "Gah! We're all gonna die! The world's exploding! The world's /exploding/!"

Vern stares oddly at Jill. Scared? Heh. Only if it's a fashion experiment gone wrong... or disco of any description. "I almost think something's wrong?" he asks, sitting up to peer curiously.

Jill lowers the magazine, and looks completely calm and composed. "I apologize for that little interruption."

Anne peers up at Jill, "Is it over?"

Minthe tentatively reaches out and gives Jill a gentle pat on the shoulder, "It's OK..." says before pulling her hand back and speaking quietly to Marius.

Minthe mutters to Marius, "She's..."

Marius blinkblinks and nods as he hears Minthe, uncurling from his ball... but still staring at Jill a lot like one would at a rattlesnake.

Jill nods slowly. "It's over. I'm okay now. Sorry."

Anne nods, "Uhm, okay... that's good..." She stands up, "So you don't like Bugs Bunny?"

Minthe lets out a deep sigh of relief... "Really? Thank goodness. 'Cause you were kinda talking nonsense there for awhile."

Vern hmms. "Man, that was some power..." he says, impressed. He grins, "Do you sing at all, Jill?" He looks strangly at Anne. "Daffy's better."

Marius blinkblinks, "So Jill's not going to make the world explode?" Captain Tactful (that's Marius, of course) inquires.

Jill closes her eyes slowly. "Please, no more questions."

Anne blinks, "Well, uhm, okay. Why not?" Shhh... don't tell her that's a question.

Jill says, "Because."

Minthe hmmms, "Well, that's good enough for me..." she says, stepping out from behind Marius... "So... hmmmm... well, now I'm bored."

Vern blinks. "Uhm... Not even one?" he asks quietly, glancing at Minthe with a look that says, 'uh, help?'

Fri Jun 18 04:48:36 2004

Jill sighs, defeated. She knows, now, that sanity is fully and unequivocably beyond her reach forever. "What is it, Vern?"

Marius blinks, "We can ask questions now? And the world won't be destroyed?"

Minthe opens her mouth to try to help Vern... but see's that Jill's already helping him... she turns to Marius and puts a finger to his lips, "Hush, love. For a little while, anyway."

Anne blinkblinks.

Vern's mouth works silently for a few seconds. "I... uhm, wasn't expecting /that/," he gradually admits. "Hookay..." He pauses to take in a small breath, then plunges on in a rush. "Well, being on account of your really good looks 'n not beating me up 'n all I was wondering if it was possibly if I could ask you on a... Well a... Y'know. Date." He looks down and awkwardly fiddles with the sand.

Minthe quietly stands by but watches the action intently, her head going from Jill to Vern back to Jill... it's kinda like tennis!

Jill blinks, startled. Of all the questions Vern could have asked, she certainly wasn't expecting THAT. "A... date?"

Anne blinks as she wasn't expecting that either.

Marius blinkblinks as he hears Minthe and looks inquisitively at her. And then he hears Vern. Oh, and he nods and surveys the date-askage.

Need a new car, but money's tight? Your feet sore and tired from that hike to school?

Arnold's Used Car Lot: It might not be pretty, but hey! It's only a dollar!

Vern nods a little. "Uhuh. A date." Maybe he has some sense after all, as he decides not to explain the concept.

Jill is quiet. She seems to be considering it. "...when?"

Minthe is also quiet. She leans back against Marius.

Marius is also quiet, but that's because... well, his creative input probably isn't required at this point. That and Minthe told him to.

Vern erms. "I, uh... Guess later tonight? Tomorrow? Whenever's a good time for me..."

Jill closes her eyes, and looks a little embarassed. "If you could narrow it down a little, it'd help."

Vern sweatdrops. "Pick you up at eight? Seven? Six, five four...?"

Minthe closes her eyes for a second, taking a deep breath, then takes Marius by the hand, "Uhhhhhh... Anne... why don't you come with us? There's a... uh... thing over... uh... there I think we should all... uhm... see..." she says, trying to lead the two of them away.

Marius blinks, "Huh? Oh... um... sure..." he says as he allows himself to be led along.

Jill cringes slightly, and utters the most embarassing thing she's ever had to say. "I'll... have... to... ask... ... ..my parents."

Anne blinks at Minthe, "I don't wanna... oh... uhm... okay." She follows Minthe, getting the hint.

Fri Jun 18 05:13:36 2004

Minthe leads the others out of earshot... "Uhhhh.... just thought they could use some privacy..." says the girl with severe boundry issues.

Vern nods quietly. When he feels the beginnings of a smirk creep across his face, he knocks himself none too gently. "Aaahurk... Vell. Thaht's vehry goohd..."

Anne nods to Minthe, "Uh, yeah..."

Jill quirks slightly at Vern, an odd look on her face. "...you... alright?"

Minthe glances over at the two of them... "Vern looks like he swallowed a pickle or something... Whaddya think they're saying?"

Vern nodnods, "Uhur! Pervectly okay!" He rubs his cheek, smiling with embarrassment.

Jill says, "Well,... alright. I'll have to get back to you." She smiles faintly, shyly. "Where are we going, anyway?"

Anne blinks and looks back at Vern, "Maybe he doesn't like her favorite food."

Vern's smile freezes for a moment. "Uhhh... That's a surprise!" he points out, while ignoring the uneasy feeling he's going to have to scrounge cash off his cousin.

Minthe nods a little quickly, "Yeah, that's about the kind of thing he'd say... I bet she's not gonna go out with him. I mean look at that smile on her face... she's toying with him, I bet, right?"

Jill starts to scowl, blinks a moment, and stops, thinking back to the words of her sister. Pouting slightly instead, she takes a step closer to Vern. It's supposed to look a little seductive, but she manages to make it look a little creepy instead. "...you sure you can't tell me?"

Vern blinkblinks. With his eyes firmly caught on Jill in something close to a wince, he squeaks out, "No."

Anne nods, "Yeah, probably."

Jill sticks out her lip a little, and reaches out to run a finger along Vern's chest. Less creepy now, and more like she's actually pouting. "...please?"

Minthe nods again, "Yeah, look see? She's poking him in the chest... and uh... sticking out her lip in... like... anger. She's totally blowing him off. Uh... Poor Vern."

Vern cringes. "Can't tell... Surprise... Clown'll eat me... Suprise..." he murmurs incoherantly.

Jill just blinks, and frowns now. "...Vern, are you frightened of me?"

Anne nods, "Yeah... well... Vern's too happy to be going out with her, y'know, so maybe it's for the best."

Minthe blinks over at Anne, "What do you mean? Vern's too happy?"

Vern shakes his head quickly, "No, no! Not frightened, just can't... tell you! Secret, surprise!" He groans quietly. Oh, how he wants to tell.

Jill smiles faintly, stepping a little closer. "C'mon, you can tell me. I promise I'll keep it secret." Could that *possibly* work?

Anne shrugs, "Well, I mean... Vern's all bouncy. And she's... well... I dunno, kinda... not bad but uhm... dark? Scary?"

Vern falls over backwards, the logic bomb completely frying his circuits. "Can't tell. Keeping secret from you... Clown's gonna eat me..."

Minthe puts her hands on her hips and turns towards Anne, "What do you mean? Jill's not scary or dark! She's a wonderful person! She's warm and funny and thoughtful and has a sweet laugh! I've heard her giggle! Does that sound scary to you? Does it?! 'Cause it's not! *scoffs* Jill scary! That's crazy talk, is what that is!"

Jill winces, kneeling down next to Vern. Gently stroking his forehead, she murmurs, "Are you okay, Vern?"

Fri Jun 18 05:38:37 2004

Vern says weakly, "Please don't make me tell... I don't want you to fi--" He sweatdrops, and hurriedly continues, "I don't want to ruin the surprise!"

Marius blinkityblinkblinks, snapping out of his daze as he glances between Minthe and Anne, "Meh? What's going on? I kinda created my own romance movie in my head to filter out the effects of this romance thingy. I do that sometimes."

Anne rolls her eyes at Minthe, "Just because somebody /laughs/ doesn't mean they can't be dark and scary too!"

Jill smiles faintly (and genuinely for once), standing up slowly. "I'm sorry, Vern. I didn't mean to confuse you." She offers up her hand for Vern to help him to his feet.

Minthe takes a deep breath and calms down, smiling up at Marius, "Uhm... nothing... we're pretty sure Jill has turned him down and now Vern's collapsed in defeat... I mean, look at the way she's stroking his forehead 'cause she hates that she's hurt him... she's like that you know... caring... and not at /all/ scary or dark!"

Vern grins. "S'alright, it's pretty easy to do..." He takes Jill's hand, and stands. He brushes some of the sand off, and finally winces. So much for the impressing plan...

Jill gestures vaguely towards the rest of the group, unobtrusively retrieving her hand from Vern's. "Shall we rejoin our comrades?"

Marius nods, "Oh, that's what happened. See, in my mental movie, I was fighting off the Zortoblanian army inside a helicopter with a Zap Gun, and those two were held hostage by renegade Vikings who were out to steal the concept of candy."

<<<OOC>>> Vern laughs.

Vern nods forlornly, watching Jill's hand retreat. "Yeah... I guess we'd better..." he mumbles. After shifting a bit of sand around with his toes, he starts towards the others.

Minthe shakes her head, "Marius, please enough with the fantasy, OK? Stick with reality... Now, your friend just got his heart stomped on... he's gonna need your support."

Jill watches Vern walk for a few moments, appreciating the aesthetic view with a slight smile before trudging along as well.

Marius blinks, "Hey, it was a cool movie! I could /so/ make a fortune off it." Then he nods to Minthe, "I'll do that..." he says before grinning kinda sympathetically at Vern.

Anne blinks at Marius and then looks towards Jill and Vern.

Minthe rubs Marius' arm lightly, "Yes, sweetheart, I know... but later, OK?"

Vern smiles as he draws closer to the others. "Hey guys. How's that... uhh, thing, you needed to show them? Can I see?"

<<<OOC>>> Marius hmms, "I gotta go for dinner... I'm also not sure when I'll be back."

<<<OOC>>> Minthe will be leaving soon too... *snugs*

<<<OOC>>> Jill should have left a half hour ago.

Minthe blinks, "Oh... the uhm.... thing.... uhhhhh... it left. Sorry." She smiles sympathetically, "How're you feeling, Vern? You OK? Do you need to talk?"

<<<OOC>>> Vern waves, "C'ya later Marius."

Take a study break kids....

*cracking of a whip* Back to the homework! back!

<<<OOC>>> Vern laughs. "Sorry Jill. I guess I could've had Vern ask 'What's your favourite colour?' and watched the fireworks..."

<<<OOC>>> Anne wves.

Anne nods, "Uh, yeah, it left..."

<<<OOC>>> Jill says "No problems, I just gotta jet."

Vern blinks. "Oh... Uhm... Okay," he says, a little disappointed, and continues a little puzzledly, "But I'm alright... Great even." He grins.

Fri Jun 18 06:03:38 2004

Minthe blinks, "Great? After that? Wow... you're tough. Good man," she says.

<<<OOC>>> Vern nods, and waves. "Later."

<<<OOC>>> Jill waves to all, and poofs.

<<<OOC>>> Minthe snugs!

Jill has disconnected.

[Connect] Jill has disconnected.

Vern chuckles, nodding slowly. "Uhuh... Okay. So, what were ya'all talking about?

Anne nods, "Yeah... Most people would be... well, not so great."

Minthe uhmss... "Nothing Vern... we weren't talking about anything... you poor, poor, brave soul..."

Vern blinkblinks. "Uhm... No. Most people feel great after asking someone out. I mean... I heard something about him screaming like a girl..." he says, pointing at Marius.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Anne blinks, "Oh, well, uhm... right..."

Marius blinkblinks, tilting his head, "What? Oh, I was not."

Minthe giggles, "Marius is a sensitive soul," she says with a smile up to her honey... "I just meant... well... we kinda saw what was going on with you and Jill and... well, we felt kinda bad about what she did. And you should know, you're a great guy, and you'll find someone someday."

Vern has reconnected.

Vern has partially disconnected.

<<<OOC>>> Minthe need a repose?

<<<OOC>>> Vern mutters. "Sorry. Last thing I saw was Marius saying, 'Oh, I was not.' ... I think. ^^;

Minthe blinks, "Oh... the uhm.... thing.... uhhhhh... it left. Sorry." She smiles sympathetically, "How're you feeling, Vern? You OK? Do you need to talk?" <R>

<<<OOC>>> Vern nods.

<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Ah@!"

<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Sorry"

Minthe giggles, "Marius is a sensitive soul," she says with a smile up to her honey... "I just meant... well... we kinda saw what was going on with you and Jill and... well, we felt kinda bad about what she did. And you should know, you're a great guy, and you'll find someone someday." <R>

Vern... huhs? "About what she did? What? You mean trying to make me tell her stuff?"

Anne just listens to Vern and Minthe.

Marius blinks, "Huh? But didn't she totally..." Then he remembers. Sensitive subject. Therefore it requires a sympathetic soul. So he just shuts up.

<<<OOC>>> Vern laughs.

Minthe blinks and uhhhms... "Tell her-- No... about the... you know... the sad part."

Vern looks between Marius and Minthe. "Sad part? What?" He blinks yet again, then sweatdrops. "Aw, no. You better not be trying to tell me Jill is a guy sometimes or something..."

<<<OOC>>> Minthe laughs!

Marius sweatdrops and shakes his head, "No... but... um... well, didn't she..." He grins sympathetically, "They can be so cruel sometimes, can't they?" Well, he got the ending right... pity he missed what he was actually supposed to be talking about.

Anne blinkblinks, "She is?"

Minthe crosses her arms, and turns away in a huff, "Geez Vern! I'm trying to be nice. Help pick up the pieces after Jill turned you down flat... but if you're gonna insult me, forget it! I'm /glad/ she said 'no.'"

Fri Jun 18 06:28:38 2004

Vern looks completely and utterly mistified. "Pick up pieces? Insult? Cruel? She's wha?" He shakes his head slowly, "She didn't say 'no'. She said she'd ask her... uhm, she'd ask if she could go." He covers his mouth for a few seconds, until the budding grin fades. "Ahem... So, uh, I'm not really sure if that's a 'yes' but I don't think it was a 'no'..."

<<<OOC>>> Minthe is fading fast...

Marius winces, "Oh dear..." he murmurs as he /finally/ takes in Vern's situation, "I think we've had a /serious/ failure to communicate here..."

<<<OOC>>> Marius says "Yeah, my sister's probably gonna be moving in to dethrone me soon too."

<<<OOC>>> Vern says "You have selected: Regecide! If you know the name of the King or Queen being murdered, press one...!"

<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "I love that line."

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Minthe drops her arms and looks a bit stunned, "Oh..." she says vacantly... "Oh, well... then it's probably gonna be fine, Vern... I toldja before she'd say 'yes,' didn't I? That's... great news," she smiles then yawns big, "Well... I'm beat... I'll see you all tomorrow," she says wandering towards the ocean.

Vern waves puzzledly, "Yeah... You did. C'ya later..."

Anne blinks, "Uh, bye Minthe."

Marius grins and waves to Minthe, "'Night, beautiful..." he says.

<<<OOC>>> Minthe waves!

<<<OOC>>> Anne waves.

<<<OOC>>> Vern waves.

Vern hehs quietly. "So... Uhm, you guys totally thought Jill had ripped my heart out or something?" he asks with a grin.

Marius grins, looking a little sheepish, "Well, yeah."

Anne nods, "Uhm, yeah... It looked that way."

Minthe has disconnected.

Vern laughs. "Nifty..." He pauses for a few seconds, then uhms, "Sooo... I don't suppose I could ask either of you two for a loan? I mean, uh, it's a long way until pay day 'n all..."

Anne blinks, "Uhm... how much do you need?"

Vern erms quietly, "Uh... How expensive is La Maison, uhm, whatever?"

<<<OOC>>> Marius grumbles at the Queen Nerd, AKA his sister, "I gotta go."

<<<OOC>>> Anne waves.

<<<OOC>>> Vern says "Regicide... Reeeegicide... :P C'ya."

Marius winces as he hears Vern, "Expensive. Very, very, very expensive." Then he blinks as his watch goes off, "OK. OK. Time to run, guys. My family are on their wakeup call in ten minutes." And with that, he scoots.

Anne blinkblinks, "That place is... oh my..." She waves to Marius, "Later."

Vern nods gravely, "Oh... Uhm. Later Marius.

Marius has disconnected.

Anne nods, "I'm not even sure how much it is... I've only been there a couple times..."

Vern nods slowly. "Sooo... Do you think I'm gonna be able to take Jill there on less then... say, fourty dollars?"

Anne blinks, "Uhm... maybe if you just eat salad..."

Vern sweatdrops. "Ugh. Salad? Are you sure? I mean... Can we take a look or something?"

Fri Jun 18 06:53:39 2004

Anne shrugs, "Well, uhm... I'm not sure, no..."

Vern slowly says, "Uhoh. I might, just might, be in trouble with this date thing..." He frowns, "I don't wanna go to Derkin's or someplace like that..."

Anne nods, "I can't think of too many people that would go to La Masion Rouge on their first date... But, uhm, well, it might be a good idea to find out how much everything is."

Vern wrinkles his nose. "But... You saw Derkin's! Who's that gonna impress? An alien, maybe, but not someone like Jill who uses so many big words in a sentence!" He nods, "Uhuh. I think we should go check it out."

Anne follows, of course.

Vern heads to the parking lot.

Vern has left.

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

You head off the beach and into the parking lot.

Beach Parking Lot

The parking lot off of Beach Road is situated so that it comes right up next to the beach. Sand is strewn across portions of the lot as there are cars, saucers, and jet bikes galore. Large lights are placed at intervals along the rows in the parking lot to provide lighting for those evening hours. A couple of palm trees are also planted near the edges of the parking lot and a large concrete wall prevents people from driving their cars onto the beach.

A ringing comes from Anne.

Perhaps you should 'answer phone'.

You flip open your ringing cell phone. You may now 'speak' into it.

Vern shakes his head slowly. "Man... Maybe if I could invent a time machine, go forwards in time, and collect all my paychecks..."

From the phone, the voice says ""Greetings, Greiians!""

Anne giggles at Vern, "But then you wouldn't get paid again for a long time, since you would already have gotten them..."

From the phone, the voice says "We come in peace. Take us to your leader."

Tal pages: Sorry... I thought of the second line after pressing enter and just couldn't resist... :P

Long distance to Tal: Anne laughs.

Vern hrms. "Yeeeah... But I'd be rich early!" He grins, trudging towards Shades.

Into your phone: Anne giggles and can be heard talking to someone else before saying into the phone, "Uh, hello?"

Anne laughs, "But then you'd be broke!"

The weather changes.

Vern uhms, "Not if I invested it wisely... Like in those funny teleporting rubber bands! They're great! You flick 'em and they appear across the room!"

From the phone, the voice says "Hello, O Pinnacle of Pleasantness! Once again, I fail to locate you. Could you please reveal your whereabouts, please?"

Anne blinks at Vern, "There's teleporting rubber bands?"

Fri Jun 18 07:18:39 2004

Vern nodnods, "Yeah! Or at least there could be, if I invested enough in them!"

Into your phone: Anne laughs and says something before talking into the phone again, "Well... I'm headed to La Masion Rouge with Vern right now." she giggles.

From afar, to (Anne, Tal): Vern laughs. "That gets my vote for the awkard statement of the night."

Long distance to (Tal, Vern): Anne laughs, "Shhh!"

To (Vern, Anne), Tal pages: Which one?

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal suspects he hasn't heard it.

You paged (Tal, Vern) with 'What Anne just said on the phone.'.

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal laughs!

From the phone, the voice blinks. He pauses. "Oooooh!", it simply asys, then. A shorter Ooooh! than usual. He is probably surprised, but somehow not really excited at the idea.

Into your phone: Anne giggles, "Yeah, Vern wants to go 'cause he likes the place."

Long distance to (Tal, Vern): Anne tries to make it more easily misinterpreted. :P

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal laughs.

From afar, to (Anne, Tal): Vern laughs.

From the phone, the voice pauses again. "Yes, it is quite nice. Very elegant. Exquisite I might say. I once stepped in and took a look around, but didn't stay long, for fear of being asked to be financially drained just for smelling the vapours emanating from their fine cusine..."

Into your phone: Anne giggles, "Oh, yeah, it is rather expensive. That's why we're going there." As if that explains everything.

Vern bounces around impatiently. "C'mon, Anne! If we don't go soon we'll never get there in time!" In time for what, we don't know. But it'll sure sound interesting going down the phone.

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal laughs.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

From the phone, the voice pauses again. "Oh. Uhm. Er." He sighs. "Well, I have been working and saving a lot, recently, and if we exclude our guns, I haven't been buying anything." It seems to become a little happier, albeit still a little nervous. "Hey, I think that maybe I'll be able to afford a glass of water... So, shall we meet there?"

Into your phone: Anne pauses. In the background, Vern's voice can be heard saying impatiently, "C'mon, Anne! If we don't go soon we'll never get there in time!" Anne laughs and says, "I'm coming, I'm coming..." Another pause, "Oh, Tal's coming too."

Vern nods, "S'okay, okay! C'moooon!"

From the phone, the voice adds. "Uhm... I'll come only if I'm not disturbing. I can come there incognito and simply spy while hidden behind a potted plant if either of you isn't happy with the idea of me coming along..."

Long distance to (Tal, Vern): Anne laughs, "Poor Tal!"

Into your phone: Anne pauses while again Vern's voice can be heard saying, "S'okay, okay! C'moooon!" Anne pauses a bit longer before laughing, "Of course you can come. See you there."

From afar, to (Anne, Tal): Vern grins, "Heck. I wish you had've been here earlier Tal, as IC commentary was the running thing."

From the phone, the voice says "Yooo-hooo! I'll be there soon! Bye, love!"

You paged (Tal, Vern) with 'If he'd have been here earlier, we wouldn't be doing this! :P'.

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal laughs. "Heh... I can always ask Anne for a log... ;)"

From afar, to (Vern, Anne): Tal finally realizes, laughs!

From afar, to (Anne, Tal): Vern laughs.

Fri Jun 18 07:43:39 2004

Long distance to (Tal, Vern): Anne will be posting logs. Soon. Hopefully.

To (Vern, Anne), Tal pages: Yay!

From afar, to (Anne, Tal): Vern laughs, "Cool."

Vern bounces along to his car.

Into your phone: Anne giggles, "Okay, bye."

You hit the 'End' button to disconnect your call.

Anne puts her phone away and heads for her jetbike.

Vern has left.

Vern climbs into the Venus.

JetBike (TRIBBLES)
A large seat which can hold two people with a pair of large handle bars that stick up high in the air. A couple of dials are set into the front of it along with a nifty little stereo system and not much else.
(+lhelp vehicle gives options and instructions.)
You toss a leg over the seat and crouch down on the JetBike - TRIBBLES.

Outside the JetBike, Anne climbs onto the JetBike - TRIBBLES.

Anne turns the key in the ignition and starts the JetBike.

Beach Road

Beach Road is a small two lane road that runs through almost a miniature town outside of Pebble Beach. Shops and several hotels line the road, all of them crammed together to make the most of the space that is available. Humans and Aliens alike walk down the streets in shorts and swimsuits. Here and there you can see a street performer trying to make a couple of bucks. Not too far off you can see the Beach crowded with people. The sky is absolutely beautiful and the sun is always shining down.

Highway 12

A large and busy four lane highway. Highway 12 is made out of the normal concrete with yellow lines painted down the middle. Cars and saucers roar down the highway often ignoring the 65 mph speed limit. Occasionally you get passed by a cop car that is trying to chase down a saucer to little avail. On both sides of the road you see wide open plains, dotted by sparse gas stations and other little tourist traps.

Tall skyscrapers line both sides of the street here, the light reflecting off of the huge amount of windows contained within them. Massive numbers of people are in the streets during the daytime, rushing to and from work. You can catch a little glimpse of small businesses that have managed to survive between the more booming and successful corporations. The tall black building of the Alien Control Offices can be seen to the north. A bright pillar of light shines down from the sky, connecting to the sidewalk.

Pebble Beach's own police station is located right here on this block. The most dominant structure here, it takes up one entire side of the street. A large parking lot is off to the side of the building, filled with cop cars and saucers. The building itself has a large United States flag, a United Nations Flag, an Intergalatic Police Flag, and about half a dozen others that are required by the new laws of Pebble Beach. Security in this area is extremely tight as literally hundreds of police officers sit around dunking doughnuts into coffee and watching for speeders or crimes that might happen near by. A couple of smaller businesses sit on the other side of the street and the scent of doughnuts can easily be smelled from down the road.

The Interesection of BMDRH and Greyhound is a busy one. A large number of small shops intermixed with a couple of bigger ones sit along the sides of the street. The local bus station is located on one of the corners, with less fortunate aliens and humans hanging around outside its doors. A lot of street lamps cast a dim glow onto the ground and provided enough illumination to easily see by. A large number of police cars are parked outside the Donut Shop. Saucers fly overhead while a couple of cars and jet bikes skim the street.

Pebble Beachs own Nuclear Power Plant is located here, conveniently across the road from the Community Hospital. A huge fence separates the street from the parking lot of the power plant and a couple of large Nogia guards (big elephant type real weirdes) stand guard at the gate. The parking lot to the power plant must be a half a mile across as you can see the twin towers of the power plant in the far off distance. A couple of ambulances are parked right outside the power plant gates, just in case. The hospital is a rather large building in itself. Seven stories tall, the emergency room exit is off of this street here along with the main entrance. Now and then you can see an ambulance pull up with a seriously injured teener who decided to try Deadman's Curve. You can also see a couple of humans and aliens walking from the power plant to the hospital, glowing slightly. On a small bench outside are a couple of people wearing really weird costumes waiting for a freak radioactive accident.

200N Alamo

Another portion of the rich part of Pebble Beach, Alamo is famous for the french resturant, La Masion Rouge. An old French resturant, the place has a reputation for some of the best food in Pebble Beach but is also extremely expensive. The parking lot off to the side of the resturant is filled with some very classy cars and the occasional run down car of someone trying to impress their date. The rest of the resturants and stores are not as busy but they have plenty of window shopping.

Anne shrugs, "I guess. I don't see him out here."

Vern nods, grinning. "Alright! I guess we can go check the pricelist!"

Waiting Room - La Masion Rouge

The waiting room of La Masion Rouge is quite nice. Large glass windows let you look over the rich district of Alamo outside. Fake plants (fake because aliens tend to eat them and some teenagers as well) are set in the corners and hanging from the walls are a series of nice paintings by Pebble Beachs own Lise Riches. A small podium is in the center of the room with a phone on the top of it. Against the walls are a couple of couches and other seats for waiting for your table. An archway leads back to the main dining area.

The walls are covered with paintings of France and french food. In the center of the room is the actual kitchen, in an almost bar style, with a number of cooks running back and forth to prepare fresh food for you. One of the walls is complete windows letting you look over the beautiful rich homes of Pebble Beach. Waiters walk back and forth taking orders for people.

Anne giggles quietly, looking around.

Vern snags a menu. He stares at it for a few seconds, then winces, automatically feeling his wallet. "Oooouuch! I dunn'it think she can take it!"

Anne walks over and peers over Vern's shoulder at the menu, "Not many could..."

Anne is standing next to Vern, peering over his shoulder at a menu, "Well... uhm... how much?"

<<<OOC>>> Vern waves.

Tal just looked at you.

Vern hrms. "I think it was around sixty or seventy dollars..." He shakes his head quietly, "Oh, man. It looks like if I have a... heck. Coffee, and Jill can order almost whatever she wants..." He can't help but wince, patting his poor wallet comfortingly.

Correction. Soon to be poor.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Tal sneaks in, leaping behind a potted plant. He sticks his head out, looks around, spots Vern and Anne, pulls his head behind the plant again. He quickly crawls behind another plant (a cactus, this time), stays hidden a little more, then finally darts out, tiptoing next to Anne and Vern. "Pssssst! Here I am!"

Vern waves his hand over his shoulder at Tal. "Yeah yeah, french-waiter guy. We're browsing. We'll order in a minute..." He peers more closely at the menu.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

<<<OOC>>> Tal laughs.

Anne points at the sandwiches, "You could order that? How much would you need, though?" She glances up at Tal, "Oh, hey, there you are."

Tal nods twice. "Yup! Here I am! Ready to..." He tenses a little and instincively casts a quick, worried glance towards his wallet, but tears his eyes away almost immediately, "... hang out with the both of you!" He finishes, grinning wide.

Vern frowns quietly. "I'd need another... I dunno. Twenty or thirty dollars to, well... Maybe survive the night. I guess I can say we're pressed for time and so we can only get a main course... But that'd be lying. Yeah, waiter, I heard you," he says irritably.

<<<OOC>>> Tal laughs.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Anne giggles at Tal, "Oh good." She glances at Vern, "Is that twenty or thirty with just the main course, or are you including other stuff too?"

Fri Jun 18 08:58:41 2004

Tal coughs. "I... I believe twenty or thirty bucks are just what's needed for the breadsticks." If he was aware of what Vern was doing the day before, Tal would comment "Basically, instead of a Tepee, Vern will be making a millionaire sheik's tent". But he doesn't, so... he doesn't.

<<<OOC>>> Vern laughs.

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Vern blinkblinks. "Oh, heck! The other stuff!" He whacks himself with the menu, quietly cursing. "What other stuff can we do? I never finished poking around town to find all the best spots!" ... And yes, the menu is still quite attached to his face. "Yeesh, don't rub it in..." he says to Tal, Le Waiter.

Anne giggles at Tal, "Not /quite/ that much, but close, love..." She blinks at Vern, "Uhm..."

Tal says, "Oh. Uhm..." He pauses, looking for subjects of discussion. "Say, has any of you eaten here before?"

Vern shakes his head slowly. "Nuhuh."

Anne nodnods, "Oh yes, I have. Twice? I think it was."

Tal oooohs. "Cool! You'll have to tell me about that some day!"

Vern mutters quietly, taking the menu away from his face. "Aw heck..." He turns around, and blinks. "Oh... Uhm, hey Tal. Do y'know where the waiter went? I was wondering if you could, like, work for a meal or something..."

You look in your wallet and see $134.60.

Anne blinks at Tal, "Well... uh... I suppose so..." She looks at Vern, "I /could/ lend you some money if you paid me back..."

Vern sighs quietly. "Alright. Yeah, I think I'll need a loan... Could always eat at Derkin's. Or Hungry Harry's." He shudders.

Anne facepalms, "twenty to thirty to fourty isn't a /number/..."

Vern blinks. "Uhm. Twenty. Or thirty. Or fourty dollars," he says slowly.

Anne blinks, "Okay... make up your mind... fourty dollars?"

Vern shrugs in exasperation. "Yes! Fourty'll do fine! I just meant whatever you could afford!"

You look in your wallet and see $134.60.

Anne shrugs, "I could /afford/ to lend you $130. But that would take too long to pay back." She takes out her wallet.

Vern blinks. "/Where/ do you get that money from?" he asks incredulously.

Anne laughs, "I haven't really bought anything in a long time..." She takes out some money and hands it to Vern.

You pay Vern $40.00.

Vern slowly nods, "I'll bet..." He hrms, "This should take about... two weeks for me to pay back?" He grins, "Thanks, by the way."

Anne nods, "Alright." She chuckles, "You're welcome."

Vern shakes his head. "Bah. Shouldn't have bought the silly black hole thing..." He smiles, "Still... You just can't beat the feeling of locking your annoying siblings in there..."

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Anne blinks, "I... have never thought of doing that."

Vern laughs, "It was kinda an accident, when I /first/ discovered it..."

Anne nods, "Uh, okay..."

Vern chuckles, "Dunno how I ever lived without it.

Anne giggles, "Well, I don't even have one..."

Vern laughs, "They're handy. They're very handy." He nods, still grinning. "I s'pose we should get out of here before the waiter starts charging us for the air...

Anne blinks, "Oh, right. Yeah, we should go somewhere else."

Vern chuckles, "Yah. Any ideas?" He heads for the door.

Anne shrugs, following Vern, "Uhm... I dunno."

Vern heads out through the archway to the dining room.

Vern has left.

Waiting Room - La Masion Rouge

The waiting room of La Masion Rouge is quite nice. Large glass windows let you look over the rich district of Alamo outside. Fake plants (fake because aliens tend to eat them and some teenagers as well) are set in the corners and hanging from the walls are a series of nice paintings by Pebble Beachs own Lise Riches. A small podium is in the center of the room with a phone on the top of it. Against the walls are a couple of couches and other seats for waiting for your table. An archway leads back to the main dining area.

Teenagers From Outer Space MUX

You're already here, so isn't advertising it somewhat redundant?

Anne giggles, "Well, if you want to. Depends on what you're going to do, I guess."

Vern hrms quietly, "I dunno, I was thinking about..." He comes to a complete and utter halt. "Oh, crap. I never got around to what happens after she says yes..."

Anne blinks, "After she says yes, you bring her here, right?"

Vern nods quickly, "Well, yes! But I never thought about what to do before coming here or after going away!" Does he sounds panicky to you?

Anne blinks, "Uh... you get in the car and drive?"

Vern blinks. He just kinda looks at Anne for a few moments, then slaps his forehead. "My god! It's brilliant!" Eh... Vern might want to pay attention to the note. Y'know. The one that says, 'don't ridicule the person lending you money. They might charge interest.'

<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.

Anne shrugs, "Well, you /could/ walk here... but it's kinda far."

Vern nods slowly. "Yeah... Yeah I could. I think I'd rather drive though."

Anne nods, "Yeah. It's much better that way.

Vern smiles. "C'mon. Let's get out of here... I can finish going nuts elsewhere."

Anne laughs, "Sure." She follows Vern again.

Vern heads out of the La Masion Rouges waiting room.

Vern has left.

200N Alamo

Another portion of the rich part of Pebble Beach, Alamo is famous for the french resturant, La Masion Rouge. An old French resturant, the place has a reputation for some of the best food in Pebble Beach but is also extremely expensive. The parking lot off to the side of the resturant is filled with some very classy cars and the occasional run down car of someone trying to impress their date. The rest of the resturants and stores are not as busy but they have plenty of window shopping.

Vern laughs. "I hope it's in a good way..."

Anne nods, "Oh, well, then, that's good."

Anne shrugs, "We just... kinda... well, meet."

Vern blinks. "Wha? You mean... You didn't date? At all?"

Anne pauses and then shakes her head, "I don't think we've ever been on a real date. Except for Homecoming last year."

Vern ohs quietly. He shuffles his feet around awkwardly.

Vern blinks, quickly holding up his hands, "What? What'd I say? Nothing. Didn't say a thing."

JetBike (TRIBBLES)

The Interesection of BMDRH and Greyhound is a busy one. A large number of small shops intermixed with a couple of bigger ones sit along the sides of the street. The local bus station is located on one of the corners, with less fortunate aliens and humans hanging around outside its doors. A lot of street lamps cast a dim glow onto the ground and provided enough illumination to easily see by. A large number of police cars are parked outside the Donut Shop. Saucers fly overhead while a couple of cars and jet bikes skim the street.

The building itself has a large United States flag, a United Nations Flag, an Intergalatic Police Flag, and about half a dozen others that are required by the new laws of Pebble Beach. Security in this area is extremely tight as literally hundreds of police officers sit around dunking doughnuts into coffee and watching for speeders or crimes that might happen near by. A couple of smaller businesses sit on the other side of the street and the scent of doughnuts can easily be smelled from down the road.

Here and there you can see a street performer trying to make a couple of bucks. Not too far off you can see the Beach crowded with people. The sky is absolutely beautiful and the sun is always shining down.

Beach
The Beach of Pebble Beach is a large spanning area of tan sand that reaches for about a mile in both directions. Since the weather here is almost always great, the place is packed. The tan sand feels very nice under your feet (or tentacles or whatever) as you walk across it. Entire families have set up camp here with their towels spread all over the place. Towards the north you see more of the beach and sand dunes, an area that appears to be more populated with teenagers then anywhere else. To the south you can see a large restaurant that people are often coming and going from. Up on a small hill overlooking the beach is a Lifeguard shack with a little giftshop underneath it.

<<<OOC>>> Minthe laughs, "Good for you! Hey Anne!"
<<<OOC>>> Anne waves.
Minthe lies on the sand a few feet from the sleeping Marius, with a sudden look of worry on her face, this is how it starts... the guys she date start talking about Holly, then they fall in love with Holly... it's kinda a recurring theme in her life... "Holly? What do you want to see her for?"
Marius lays in the sand, lightly sleeping but actually quite talkative for a sleeping person as he replies, "Well... ya can't tell anyone about this, because it's a secret that I'm keeping for somebody... but I kinda need to ask her about a few things."
Aidan phews softly and wipe his forehead
Anne comes wandering onto the beach, shaking her head slightly as she looks around.
Minthe blinks, /more/ secrets? Like the secret fact that he's in love with Holly? Or the secret fact that he's realized Minthe isn't good enough?! Or secret fact that he really /did/ want her to look stupid in that Seashell Girl outfit?! "WHAT SECRET?!" she shouts out... then quickly slaps her hand over mouth... "Uhm... what secret?" she wispers softly....
Marius almost wakes up at that point, but he just /barely/ manages to drift back down to sleep, "OK, OK, you don't have to yell..." he murmurs, "...and dude, I barely know you. But I guess I can tell you a few things. It involves a date... a dinner... and a present which I'm not gonna divulge."
Aidan cringes....he knows she is so gonna take that the wrong way.
Anne, well, it's hard not to miss the little group with that yelling, so she wanders over there.
Minthe blinks confused, "You wanna ask Holly about Vern's dinner date with Jill? Why? And what present is he gonna get her?" It's probably because he's secretly in love with Holly, but she can't /quite/ figure out how that fits in yet...
Aidan inches a little bit away from M&M he knows this is gonna turn sour any minute now
Marius replies in a confused tone of voice, "Oh, I'm not going to ask her about Vern and Jill. The questions I'm asking are on a topic a little closer to home..." He then adds, "...but that's none of your business, buster."
Fri Jun 18 11:28:44 2004
Anne blinks curiously and tilts her head slightly, listening.
Minthe blinks 'closer to home...?' "You mean you /really/ want Holly to date Terellemi? What about poor Bertie? He blew a fuse when it was for pretend..." she says, a little thrown... Then it clicks. He wants Holly to date his brother so she and Marius can spend more time together... /closer to home!/ Aha! She /knew/ it! What a sneak!
Marius blinks. Yes, he blinks for half a second in his sleep, "Terellemi?!? That slimeball? No /way/! I wouldn't let him /near/ Holly after the last fiasco." And then he adds, "And Angle has nothing to worry about. Heck, he might even want to help."
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Geez, this hole is getting bigger and bigger."
<<<OOC>>> Minthe it's not about to get better...
<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs and wonders if poor Holly has the faintest idea what's going on.
Aidan chuckles, he knows exzactly what Marius is planning, but Minthe is about as thick as...well as thick as oatmeal mixed with tar and concrete.
Anne blinks, confused.
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Hey!"
Minthe blinks, then gets a disgusted look on her face, "Help dating Holly?! Like the three of you at once?! That's... that's /sick!/ What about me--err-Minthe? Huh? Did you ever think what that would do to her?!" Well... maybe Aidan's got a point...
Marius umms in his sleep, miraculously (or disastrously) missing the 'dating Holly' line and thus the chance to correct it, "But if Minthe were to know, that would destroy the point of the entire thing to begin with. I'd hate for her to find out before it came to fruition because it'd spoil it all."
<<<OOC>>> Marius debates +gossipage... oh, how he debates it.
<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.
Anne blinks, "Why would Angle want to help Marius date Holly?"
Aidan raises a hand as if about to put the whole thing right....but remeberd the shut up face and stifles
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Oh blast, there goes Marius' lifeline."
Minthe's chin starts to quiver... "Well, I'll just bet it would spoil your little plan! Why don't you just forget the whole thing before she gets hurt? That'd probably be for the best."
Marius sleep-murmurs, "Huh? Hurt? But that's not gonna hurt her at all! And if I were to forget it... no, after everything that's been done for me, I wouldn't be any kind of gentleman if I did!"
Anne blinks, still confused.
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Solid proof that there /is/ such a thing as being too caring, ladies and gentlemen."
Minthe blinks, her eyes narrowing... it's true... it's all true... "And just what has /she/ done for you?"
Marius turns a little, then continues talking, "Well, after that cake and that Seashell Girl doll and everything, it's the /least/ I can do."
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Wait, I could make this more interesting. Make that 'Seashell Girl /incident/.'"
<<<OOC>>> Marius d'ohs! "And I had my +gossip ready to go!"
Fri Jun 18 11:53:45 2004
Minthe' chin quivers... that's why he didn't want to eat her cake... 'cause Holly already made him one... and the... the... /incident./ That was probably Holly's idea... Minthe sets her jaw and looks defiant... /they're/ not gonna see her feeling hurt... "Well, fine... I hope the three of you are very happy together!" she says and rolls to her feet stomping off.
Anne blinkblinks.
Aidan blinks and looks at Minthe trying to giv her a wait signal without saying anything
Marius cranes his head slightly, "Huh? What are /you/ so high and mighty about, bub? I've been working my butt off at Al's for this." And with that... well, would you believe it, he's actually beginning to rise out of sleephood, his eyes slowly fluttering open, "What... am I still here?"
Minthe stops as she hears Marius waking up... and pauses... arms crossed... her fingers tapping against her upper arm as she thinks... then she sets her jaw and turns around to face him, "You... must have fallen asleep out here..." she says in a slightly stand-offish tone... not as strong as she'd like to be, but the best she can manage.
Anne blinks, "Uhm, yeah, you're still here..."
Marius nods to Minthe, smiling at her, "Must have. Hi, beautiful..." he says, grinning, "Well, at least I got a dang good wakeup vision. How are you?" Then he nods to Anne, "Ah."
Aidan sighs knowing Marius has just about dug himself to Fiji and there is no way he can help....especially when he remebers the bone marrow incident
Minthe stands there tapping her foot, but manages a smile, "Fine... I'm totally fine. No worries. Just peachy. How're you? Sleep well?"
Anne stares at Marius for a few moments before asking, "Uhm... why would Angle want you to date Holly?"
Marius nods, "Yeah. For the most part, anyway. I had this really, really, really, really weird dream though. I was talking to this person... I don't even remember them or whether they were a guy or a girl or not... and they interrogated me about this really, really, really cool secret plan I have that'll be so cool when I finally get it going... and then for some reason they totally blasted me for..." All of that stops, however, as Marius blinks at Anne, "Wha?!?"
Aidan chuckles to himself. He's rather enjoying this chaos now...and he's not douing anything to make it worse so no one will be mad at him.
Minthe rolls her eyes at Anne... so much for subtlety... But it's out of her hands now, so she just watches Marius' reaction, very carefully.
Anne shrugs, "That's what it sounded like you said in your sleeep."
Marius blinks, "Huh? I said stuff in my sleep?" He genuinely looks a bit bewildered... partly because of the fact he actually spoke in his sleep, partly because of what he's been accused of saying, "Are you sure? That /really/ doesn't sound like something I'd say."
Aidan lays back on the sand, when somone adresses him...he'll speak. Till then it's 'shut-uppa you face'
Anne shrugs and looks at Minthe.
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Yay!!!! Someone listens to Minthe!"
Minthe shakes her head slightly, with a 'whatever' look on her face, "Well, that's what you said. That you're in love with Holly and you thought Bertie would want to help if he found out..." she looks out at the ocean, her eyes leaking a bit, "I just hope you're all happy..."
Fri Jun 18 12:18:46 2004
Marius blinks, turning his attention to Minthe as he stands and makes his way over, genuinely in the dark, "Huh? I said /what/?!? That I'm in love with Holly... that Bertie would want to /help/?!? Minthe, that makes no sense. Firstly, I've got /you/, and I'm in love with /you/. Next to you, nobody even interests me. Second, Holly's /way/ off limits, even if I was single. Thirdly... I know for a fact that Angle would /decapitate/ me if through some brainwashing twist of fate anything like that ever happened."

Minthe nodsnods testily. Maybe not denying it was a bad idea, "Uh-huh. Uh-huh. I see... well... well... uhm... you're not the only one who has options, you know. Lotsa people would wanna date me... if they were single and I was available... /lotsa/ them..." she uhms... well... it /might/ be true... "But I always say, 'No. You're with Marius and you love each other, so just look the other way...' Huh? Whatdya think about /that?!/"

Minthe ohs, "So you're /glad/ other people are interested in me?! Well, sure. Why not? That'd get you off the hook with your sick little plans to date Holly and Bertie. And what rumors about a big-nosed friend of yours?" she asks totally thrown by this insane and baseless accusation.
Fri Jun 18 12:43:47 2004
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Geez... I see no way out of this... :P"
Marius blinks, "Date Holly and /Bertie/?!? Minthe, have you gone totally /insane/? Firstly, I like /girls/ and girls /alone/. Secondly, Angle's like my brother. That's wrong on so many levels, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, and to be honest, I'm a little hurt that you actually think this low of me." He's not really angry, but he's speaking honestly and standing up for himself. Well, /that/ certainly backfired on a certain somebody, didn't it? "And as for a certain big-nosed friend of mine... /well/, rumor has it that you were totally macking on him in the mall and that you were secretly dating. But I trust you enough to believe that's total garbage."
<<<OOC>>> Anne updates the page to show the logs she plans to add.
Balroog has connected.
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Marius talks in his sleep. Love it."
<<<OOC>>> Marius woos! "Truckasaurus!"
Crys sleeping in the sands until she hears this. she wakes uo and sighs.,
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Yay!"
<<<OOC>>> Balroog says "What is wrong with talking your your sleep? I cussed my brother out many times that way."
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Heh... read the log."
<<<OOC>>> Anne says "The log should be posted on http://geocities.com/tfoslogs/ tomorrow."
<<<OOC>>> Marius laughs, "Allegedly I told someone to get away or I'd kill them in my sleep. That's very, very weird, because I'm non-violent."
<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs.
Anne blinkblinks at Marius, "What?"
<<<OOC>>> Balroog says "well genpose?"
Everyone's just kind of standing around, except Aidan who's asleep and Crys who just woke up.
Minthe stands on the beach near Anne, staring at Marius for a few seconds, chewing her lip, thinking... "Well... OK, I gotta admit, the Bertie thing doesn't make /total/ sense..." she says, then starts to giggle as she plays back the last bit... "Me and /Tal?!/ Are you serious?!" she breaks into a huge giggle-fit, "Now /that's/ insane!"
Anne blinks at Minthe, "Hey! What's wrong with Tal? I like Tal!" Okay, she should probably be glad it's not true, but still...
Balroog suddenly appears on the beach, well actually he walks onto it looking very tired and well out of it.
Marius nods, "There, you see?" he says, laughing a little himself, "Now do you see how ridiculously dumb that whole Holly and Angle accusation is to me?"
Crys moves to start her fire, she does not look tosee who all here.. as she gets the fire started.. she moves into her speeder and canges into her stree clothes
Aidan has disconnected.
Minthe giggles and nods, "OK... well, but you gotta admit, Holly's a ton more attractive than Ta--" she freezes and glances at Anne, thinking quickly, "Than... uhm... Tap-dancing... which I know you hate."
Marius hmms. He decides not to answer. He's out of trouble for now, and it'd be best to keep it that way, "Now what in the /heck/ caused you to come up with /that/ theory, anyway? As much as I hate to say it, I thought you'd quite literally gone insane."
Anne hrmphs, "You were gonna say Tal, weren't you? I wouldn't say anything like that about Marius!"
Balroog notices the huge group and walks over. He hears mention of Tal and suddenly pipes up, "Umm what about the brainy but respectful little whelp?"
Crys she then hears Bal, standing slowly as she walks over to him, hugging him softly.
Minthe blinks at Anne... (Well, duh...) O o . she thinks, but wisely doesn't say... "Uhm... no, really... Marius hates tap-dancing..." she says as innocently as possible. Then she walks over to Marius... and shakes her head... "Something you said in your sleep, I guess... I'm sorry, love... sometimes, I get frightened... it's... well, things like this have happened with Holly, before..." she says, completely missing the irony that /she/ broke up with both guys that it happened with. Amazing how the mind can rationalize things, huh?
Balroog blinks and looks down with a smile, just hugging Crys as so far Anne has not hit him for calling Tal, well a whelp."
<<<OOC>>> Balroog says "kill those errant quotes"
Crys says, "Hello my heart.."
Marius slaps a hand to his head and laughs, "Oh my goodness... Minthe, I thought we went through this already. Although yes, I /do/ need to find Holly..."
Anne hrmphs, "You were gonna say Tal! You were!" And with that, she spins on one heel and heads for the parking lot.
<<<OOC>>> Anne needs to be going.
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Awwwww"
<<<OOC>>> Anne says "If anything else interesting happens, log it and send it to me. :P"
<<<OOC>>> Minthe grins, "OKie.
<<<OOC>>> Anne says "You want your backpack or not, Minthe? If so, I gotta go. Getting too distracted here. :P"
<<<OOC>>> Minthe says "Yay!! backpack! Yay!"
<<<OOC>>> Anne laughs, waves.
Balroog blinks at Anne first and glances up, "She's a little touchy today. What did you guys do?" Then he looks down at Crys and kisses her cheek, "Hello love."
Crys feels cold to you Bal, as she standing there.. glad no one noted she was in her nightgown before changeing.. she just stands there huging to her BF, as she waiting too see what happens.
