This AtV begins elsewhere! E had sneezed herself to another dimension (again, go figure) and the adventure begins… here!
Also, a warning: This AtV is a little bit darker than usual. I mean, not by much, but hi. Quick warning. It’s still very light-hearted, funny, and awkward, however, we talk about death, mention of depression (that one was me) and demons. However, I wrote most of this, and I’m the biggest namby-pamby wimp in the world, it should be fine. You shouldn’t read if you’re a total, total wimp. And I’m not saying I think you are, I just thought I’d warn you. Depression. Death. YAY.
Dr Hare: *pacing across the living room, nervously fidgeting with a pen*
Black Widow: *glances up from phone* Will you stop.
Dr Hare: Stop what?
Black Widow: Pacing. It’s not helping anything and it’s just annoying.
Dr Hare: Sorry, I’m just… worried, I guess.
Black Widow: I know, but you’re annoying me. Sit down.
Dr Hare: Fine… *sits down* I’m just… I’m worried.
Black Widow: She’s with Fizz, whoever the heck that is.
Dr Hare: You know who that is.
Black Widow: Oh right, green cat. How E keeps track of all this…
Dr Hare: *half smiles* True enough…
Black Widow: Just don’t worry about it. She’ll be here soon.
Dr Hare: I just can’t help it. Sorry.
Black Widow: That’s why I’m here. To snap you out of it.
Dr Hare: -_- Thanks.
Black Widow: Welcome.
Dr Hare: I was being sarcastic.
Black Widow: And I wasn’t.
Dr Hare: Helpful.
Black Widow: It distracted you, didn’t it?
Dr Hare: I guess…
*A portal opens up in the middle of the living room and a bunch of people spill out.*
Dr Hare: *jumps back* What on Earth?!
E: *sits up* Hi Harvey. I’m back. And I brought friends.
Fizzson: I don’t believe we’ve met face to face before. I’m E’s friend Fizz. The red-haired girl with the cat hoodie is Arleen, the smiling spirit-demon is Smiley, and the sad-looking white cat girl is Despair.
Arleen: Nice to see you! 😀
Despair: …Hello there…
Dr Hare: Oh, um… Hello. I’m Dr Hare.
Black Widow: *looks up from her phone* Hey. Welcome to torture.
E: And that’s the fabulous Black Widow. Clearly.
Arleen: Well hi to you too, Widow. -_-
Fizzson: Anyways, should we start with the AtV?
Black Widow: It’s true.
E: You’re impossible. Yeah, let’s do the AtV!
Dr Hare: … Ok?
E: Come on, it’ll be fun!
estherli521 AKA ZIppy Sky to E and Hare: you wanna watch another movie? Bought 4 tickets this time so Helen could come to help me film you- Errr I meant film the movie.
E: … Isn’t that illegal?
Arleen: Oh, totally… If that was the thing they were filming.
E: What else would they be filming?
Dr Hare: Um…
Heather: Am I involved?
E: I’m really confused.
Arleen: Oh, don’t worry about it…
Fizzson: …You’re gonna be doing this the entire time we’re here, aren’t you?
Arleen: Try and stop me. >:)
E: … I’m lost.
Dr Hare: Just… Just don’t even bother.
E: *shrugs* Ok, works for me.
(I drew that, go me.)
To Heather: eh, it’s fine. I’m an insane bookworm too. I read like, all my sister’s SAT books and like all the books known to mankind that I find interesting.
E: The SAT books?! I did the SAT Tuesday, and it sucked! I love reading, but-
Heather: This is my question.
E: Oops, sorry.
Heather: I like reading fantasy, but I’ll read whatever. I read E’s SAT booklet.
E: What is wrong with you people.
Fizzson: I could write a list of books for you if you want. It would probably stretch halfway cross the block though…
Heather: Ooh! Please do!
E: Do it! I need more to read too!
Fizzson: I mean, I was kidding but alright. I’ll get back to ya on that.
Heather: Thank you, I can’t wait!
To E: too drunk and you don’t even drink? Sounds like when I’m trying to finish the ATS in 2 in the morning while procrastinating like crazy.
E: That’s me. Just is. The “too drunk” thing has a story, but I can’t wait until the next AtS comes out, I’ve been looking forward to it!
Fizzson: Wait… Zippy Sky has a QnA series too?
E: Yeah, she started one up a little while ago. It hasn’t been updated in a while, but I follow it. And send all the Qs. Ever.
Fizzson: Well… Guess I should add that to my list of WordPress series to check out…
E: I’ll email you one after all this, they’re pretty good! I acutally sent in a Q last time and not only flubbed saying it, but flubbed trying to explain. I’m so skills…. *sighs* Next Q?
Fizzson: Yeah, next Q.
To E and Hare: ok, this is officially driving me insane. I’m just gonna scream at a pillow in a corner at how wonderfully oblivious you two are.
E: *flushes* Oh this is ruddy typical of how my day has been going.
Dr Hare: *blushes pink*
Arleen: Zippy isn’t the only one you’re driving nuts. -_-
E: *flushing* Hey! Just cause I… *Huffs* I just… Nch, this is overrated. I’m not obvious, nothing is obvious! Nothing… like… that is happening!
Arleen: You two are impossible…
Despair: …Oh dear.
Fizzson: Moving on…
E: *huffs again* I’m not impossible!
Dr Hare: El… please, just….
E: *sighs* Sorry, I just… I dunno…
Fizzson: Can we just move on please?
E: Sorry. I’m just an awkward derp, I guess.
Dr Hare: Next Q then…
E: Ah! These ones are from you guys!
Arleen to E: Aw, don’t say that about yourself, E. You’re a great person!
E: You’re sweet, but I’m really not. I’m just boring old El.
Arleen: I guess. You’re still a really good person though.
E: Nah, I’m not.
Dr Hare: Yes you are.
E: *Shrugs* Meh.
Arleen: You’re sounding like Eyve. Can’t you just take a compliment for once?
Dr Hare: No, she can’t.
E: Shut up, I can… I’m just bad at it….
Arleen: Well, you should practice it sometime.
E: It’s not like people compliment me a lot. Case in point, why would they?
Dr Hare: I try… It’s just…. *flushes* Never mind.
Fizzson: Don’t worry about it E.
E: … Ok? Next Q, I guess.
Fizz to DH: Well, if you need help dealing with this, just let me know, alright? I know people who can help out.
Dr Hare: Dealing with… What?
Fizzson: Y’know… E’s recent dimensional weirdness? She got shot to our place for crying out loud, and seeing as how our place is literally always on the move, that’s kinda concerning.
Dr Hare: Oh. Yeah… That. I… It’s hard to know. I’m looking into it, but I don’t know… I don’t know what’s happening there. With her. I am worried about it… But… *Smiles half-heartedly* it’s fine, don’t worry about it.
Fizzson: If you say so, but if me, Seth, or anyone else I might know could help, just ask. I know lots of people, and they’ll all be willing to help if you need it.
Dr Hare: Thanks, but it’s fine, really.
Fizzson: You never know.
Arleen to Heather: What’s your favorite book?
Heather: Hmm… it’s hard to pick…
Fizzson: There are a lot of good books.
Arleen: I know, right? I don’t even know if I could pick a favorite. :T
Heather: I don’t know if I can pick, sorry. I like them all!
Arleen: That’s understandable. Books in general are just fantastic!
Despair: …I don’t read many books… But I really enjoy the ones I do read…
Heather: I love books.
E: I feel oddly secluded. I love reading, but I can’t think of anything.
Arleen: That’s alright. You don’t have to add something every time, E.
E: … That’s a fair point.
Heather: Next Q?
Fizz to all: Those were some really good wishes. (Better then anything I could come up with, anyways.)
E: I agree with that. I didn’t really have a good one, but whatever.
Binary Bard: Thanks.
Fizzson: Well, yeah. Compared to everyone else’s wishes, yours was a little lackluster, but at the same time, I don’t really know what else you would wish for, so….
E: Clearly neither did I. Harvey had a good one tho.
Dr Hare: It wasn’t that good…
E: Pff, don’t be ridiculous, that was great.
Fizzson: C’mon dude. A stable future with the people you care about? That’s fantastic!
Arleen: I know what I’d wish for if I was given a wish. *Glares at Smiley*
Smiley: Understandable, I will admit.
E: *laughs* You’ve got a point there Arleen.
Dr Hare: *smiles* Thanks Fizz.
Smiley to DH: Your friend tells me I’m not allowed near you. She has reasonable concerns, I must admit.
Dr Hare: Yeah…
Fizzson: Sorry, I gotta take this. *Walks off*
Arleen: Don’t worry, Hare. Smiley can’t do much to you in his current state. Even if he could, I wouldn’t let him touch you.
E: Thanks Arleen. Just don’t wanna take chances, ya know?
Dr Hare: I’m fine…
Arleen: I get ya, E. Believe me, I’ve been there.
Smiley: The death of anyone in the AtV at this moment would prove… Counterproductive. Still, I can understand you all being cautious. I’m not exactly the most trustworthy being…
Arleen: At least you’re honest about it. -_-
E: It’s my job to keep people alive, I’m careful, sue me.
Arleen: Nothing wrong with being careful.
Fizzson: …I’m back. Sorry…
Arleen: You okay, Fizz? You look kinda… off-put about something.
Fizzson: I-it’s nothing… Don’t worry about it….
E: Fizz, what’s wrong?
Dr Hare: Can we help? I have some stuff in the lab.
Fizzson: Really, it should be fine… Let’s just move on, okay?
E: Alright… If you say so…
Dr Hare: Let us know if we can help, OK?
Fizzson: I will, Hare, don’t worry.
Dr Hare: Alright…
E: Because we never worry about things we can’t fix here at the AtV!
Smiley: Sounds about right to me.
Arleen to BB: I don’t think anyone’s sent a Q to just you in a while, so… How ya doing?
Binary Bard: Huh? Oh! Sorry about that, I was busy anyways. I’ve been looking into a job recently.
E: I try to help a little, since I know this town pretty well.
Arleen: You’re looking for a job, Binary? That’s cool. Any job in particular?
Binary Bard: Hopefully something in mechanics.
E: *giggles* Can you imagine the great Binary Bard working at McDonald’s?
Binary Bard: *smiles* Says the woman who’s probably going to get a job at Walmart.
E: Oh hush it….
Arleen: I haven’t even thought about getting a job. With a smiling spirit demon to look after, I don’t really have much time to consider any kinds of careers…
E: You’ve got a point. Do you have to, like, watch him forever? Or does he get sent back at a certain time or what?
Arleen: I’m watching him until I can find some other way to stop him from hurting the people I care about. Whether that means trapping him, destroying him, or something else….
E: Man… That’s pretty rough, I’m sorry man. Maybe we can help somehow? Lucky’s worked with ghosts and Robin knows her paranormal stuff.
Smiley: We’ve been over this. The things that work on ghosts such as seances and exorcism do not apply to me because I’m a demon with an incorporeal form, which is very different.
E: That’s why I brought up Ro. That woman has seen things…
Smiley: Hmm… Perhaps. I have not met this “Robin”, so I can neither confirm ‘nor deny her utility in this instance.
Arleen: We’ll worry about that later. I’m fine for now, and we have an AtV to finish.
E: Good point. I’ll grab the next Q.
Arleen to DH: You already know E likes you back ‘cus of the you-know-what, it’s just a matter of mustering up your courage and telling her your feelings. You can do it, Hare! We at AAaF have faith in you!
Dr Hare: *blushes* Oh-Ok, this… I can’t… well… um…
Arleen: C’mon, dude! What have you got to lose? It’s not like she’d say no.
Dr Hare: I… I’m not so sure…
Arleen: Well I am. The only reason E hasn’t asked you yet is because she doesn’t think you like her back, and she won’t listen to anyone tell her otherwise. No one… But you.
Dr Hare: I… I just… I don’t know… I can’t… Why would she…
Arleen: Because you’re the sweetest, coolest, most supportive guy a girl could ask for, and everyone… In AAaF, AtG, AtD, and even here in AtV… Knows you two are just perfect for each other. What E said on the disc was heartfelt… And right now, you’re the only one doubting it.
Dr Hare: *blushes* I… I don’t know about all that, but… I just… I don’t know… Why would she even want to… I’m no one special.
Arleen: Harvey… I have faith in you. Fizz has faith in you. Alexa has faith in you. Kat has faith in you… Just this once, can you have faith in yourself? Please?
Dr Hare: I… I don’t know… I… I guess I could try, but… No guarantees…
Arleen: Don’t worry, no matter what happens, me and all your friends will be right there to help ya through.
Dr Hare: I know… *Smiles* Thanks. I just… I just worry… That… I don’t know…
Arleen: You let nervousness and self doubt get the better of you. I know… I’ve been there….
Dr Hare: Well, maybe a little… I just.. I just don’t know what to do. About… Any of this, really.
Arleen: Just tell her how you feel. If not face-to-face, then through a love letter or note. I’ll help ya push through your doubt if you need it… You can do this, Hare… I know you can.
Dr Hare: *chuckles* That makes one of us… But… I guess… I could try now… If you wanted me to…
Arleen: I think you should. You might change your mind if you put it off for later. 😉
Dr Hare: *flushes* I’m not that bad…
Arleen: Well, y’know, just in case. HEY E!
E: *pokes her head in* Yeah Arleen? What’s up?
Dr Hare: … I’m having second thoughts right about now.
Arleen: (Don’t worry Hare, you got this!) Hare wants to tell you something.
E: Oh, ok. *walks in and leans against the couch* What’s up Harvey?
Dr Hare: *flushes* I… I… Um… *Looks at Arleen, asking for help* Well…
Arleen: (You’re an amazing person, Harvey. You can do this, you just have to believe in yourself!)
E: … Are you Ok there Harvey?
Dr Hare: I… I’m fine… I just… I… I just wanted to tell you… What I… Um… I…
Arleen: (I can’t tell her for you, she has to hear it from you to believe it. She thinks you’re amazing and would love to be with you Harvey… Please, just trust me.)
Dr Hare: I… I just wanted to say that… I think you’re… Just…
E: *tilts head* Spit it out Harvey, I’m not going to be insulted or anything.
Dr Hare: I… I know, it’s just… I… *Puts his head to his hands* Who am I kidding, I can’t do this.
E: … What? *Looks at Arleen, perplexed* What’s…
Arleen: Ooooohhh, I can’t TAKE this anymore! Harvey’s trying to say he likes you!
Dr Hare: *turns right red* Oh no…
E: … Um, yeah, we’re friends, right? Nothing’s changed, right?
Arleen: He’s trying to say he LIKE likes you! He’s been acting nervous about telling you ever since he got the disc. He always had some silly reason for himself to never tell you. Things like “No way she actually likes me.” Or “I’m not good enough for her.” And I am SICK of sitting on the sidelines and letting it happen because it’s that kind of self-doubt THAT GOT MY WOULD-BE BOYFRIEND KILLED!!!
E: *covers mouth in shock* Arleen, I… I had no idea… I’m so sorry!
Dr Hare: W-what….
Arleen: *Tearing up* … I met a guy named Thomas… I really loved him, but like Harvey, I was too nervous to tell him… I thought if he heard it coming from my stuttering mouth, there was no way he’d feel the same… I was desperate to tell him, but felt sure I couldn’t do it myself… That led me to ask help from the wrong people… *glares at Smiley* If I had just believed in myself… If I had the courage to tell him… Then maybe he’d *sniff* he’d still….
E: Oh Arleen… I’m so sorry, I had no idea… *Gently puts an hand on her shoulder* Oh gosh… Do… Do you want a hug? Would that help any?
Arleen: It would help if you two just got over your fears… That’s why it’s been so hard for me to sit at AAaF headquarters and watch you two be so nervous and awkward about confessing to each other… Refusing to be honest like this doesn’t save anyone’s feelings… If anything… It only drives you apart and causes you to make stupid mistakes… Before you know it, you lose the one person you care most about….
E: I… *Looks down* Yeah, I know. I really do. And… I’ve been trying but… I’m not sure. I struggle with the silliest things sometimes…
*The doorbell rings*
Dr Hare: I’ll grab it. I’ll be back. *squeezes E’s hand and walks off*
E: *turns red* … Well. Um. *Looks away* Sorry, you were saying.
Arleen: Please, don’t make the same mistakes I did. I know you’re scared, and I know Harvey’s nervous, but I’ve seen how you two act. You would be perfect for one another. Trust me… After what I’ve been through, I’d never steer you wrong.
E: I… Yeah, I know. *sighs* I just… I try, but I have no confidence, no idea what I’m doing, I’m 17! I just… *Puts her head in her hands* I made this all about me again. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to…
Arleen: Don’t worry too much about me, E. After all, I’m with Toby now, and he’s a wonderful boyfriend… More so then I even deserve… Just promise me you’ll get better about this and be more open with your feelings, alright?
E: I’m glad you’re with Toby and yes, you do deserve good people in your life. Besides, we talk about me enough on this blog. Really.
Arleen: *chuckles* Fair enough… Let’s do the next Q. I held up the AtV long enough with all this emotional drama.
E: Arleen, I’m pretty sure all the AtV is… Is emotional drama. And comedy.
Arleen: Still, let’s move on.
E: Yeah sorry. Light hearted humor! Let’s do this!
Despair to all: Um…I know this sounds kinda weird coming from me… But… Do you have any relationship advice…?
E: Oh come on!
Binary Bard: Um… How about our visitors go first…
Despair: *Flushes* Oh dear…
Fizzson: Don’t look at me, I suck at this sorta stuff.
Arleen: I think I already gave my peace on this earlier, so…
Black Widow: I’m not doing it.
Binary Bard: Don’t look at me, I’m still lost.
E: *giggles* I know you are, despite being in a relationship…
Binary Bard: I am not!
Dr Hare: *laughs* Anyways…
Arleen: Is that all the Qs?
E: We’re maybe halfway though. Sorry man.
Black Widow: I’m surprised E hasn’t put in her two cents.
E: Ain’t nobody need to hear that Wid.
Arleen: Yeah, Widow. I think we all know E’s not really the best person to ask about this.
E: I do know a little bit… Like how to tell if a relationship is going South, how to ask a guy out, red flags, how to know when you need to get out, the like. What I don’t know is… How to tell of a guy likes you, what to do when you like a guy, and what I’m doing with my life. Yup. That’s what 17 years of cartoons, video games, older friends and webcomics taught me.
Arleen: That… Actually makes a lot of sense.
Despair: I’m sorry… I didn’t mean to bother any of you… I guess I shouldn’t have asked…
E: It makes too much sense if you ask me. And Despair, it’s Ok, we’re not bothered! It’s a good Q.
Despair: Oh, okay then….
Arleen: Come to think of it, why did you ask that in the first place, Despair?
Despair: *Turns red* U-um… Don’t worry about it….
E: You can feel us if you want. I don’t spread secrets, promise. Maybe we can help.
Despair: Maybe… I’d just rather not say it in front of… Certain people….
Dr Hare: I can step out a minute if you need me to.
Despair: N-no, not you Hare… It’s Fizzson, Smiley… And maybe Widow….
Fizzson: That’s fine. C’mon Smiley. *Walks out*
Smiley: Hmph. Very well… *Follows*
Black Widow: Eh, I don’t care. *walks off*
Binary Bard: I’ll just… *follows*
E: So what’s going on?
Despair: Um… I just… Well…
Arleen: Spit it out, Despair. What is it?
Despair: Oh… I don’t know… I… The thing is…
E: Go ahead Despair, we aren’t going to judge. This is a no judgement zone.
Despair: Alright… I… Kinda have… A crush… On Fizzson…
E: *nods* Good choice. He’s a nice guy.
Arleen: Yeah, he really is cool… I’m guessing you’re too nervous to tell him…
Despair: That and… He already has so much on his plate… He doesn’t need some silly notion of romance to worry about….
E: Nothing wrong with love chickadee. It wouldn’t hurt to maybe try.
Dr Hare: But what’s going on? Is something bad happening over at AAaF?
Despair: Oh no, there’s nothing wrong, Hare… It’s just… What with a QnA to run, loads of people to coordinate and look after… It just seems like he’s always busy with something… I’ll tell him… I just want it to be at a time when he’s not so busy… And when I have the courage….
E: Running a Q&A can be hard…
Dr Hare: And so can crushing on someone who runs a Q&A. Maybe we can help.
E: Waitasecond what?
Despair: Thanks a lot you guys… I would love the help, but I don’t wanna tell him right now… I want to wait until I’m good and ready, alright?
Dr Hare and E: *in unison* I can respect that.
Arleen: … You two just gave me a weird sense of déjà-vu.
E: Deja Vu? That never happens around here. What kind of deja vu?
Arleen: I don’t know. It just feels like I’ve already heard something like what you two did before…
Despair: … Fizzson jinxed you in the first post of AAaF, remember…?
Arleen: … Oh yeah, that’s it.
Despair: … Next Q then?
Dr Hare and E: *in unison* Sure.
E: Dang it!
TAS to everyone: bingo bongo donkey kongo
E: … What?
Fizzson: TAS and Elyssa sent the same Q to AAaF the other day. No one in my group really got it either.
E: It’s probably a meme.
Dr Hare: Or a funny reference to the Donkey Kong game.
E: Or maybe to his final smash in Brawl?
Fizzson: The possibilities are endless with those two…
E: With us or with TAS and Elyssa?
Fizzson: TAS… And Elyssa to a lesser extent.
E: Fair point, just checking.
Vampi to E: your poem topic is chicken nuggets, go.
E: Chicken nuggets huh? Hmm…
Arleen: That’s pretty random. Good luck, E.
E: Randomness is my
specialty, plus McDonald’s
Has a deal for 6.
Fizzson: … Wow.
Arleen: Wha-? Holy cow I just got that. O.O
E: *winks* Queen of the free verse and the haiku. I like haikus cause I’m good with syllable count.
Arleen: I can see that now.
Dr Hare: *claps* Nicely done.
E: *bows dramatically* Thank you, thank you…
Arleen: You can be such a ham sometimes. XD
E: I prefer the term Drama Queen. *Giggles* I’m just a goof.
Arleen: Yeah XD
Cattomi to E: My sensors indicate that the ship user Vampi calls “Harvelyana” is growing stronger by the post, and I figured you should know that.
E: … OH FOR THE LOVE OF
Arleen: Geez. With all the shipping related Qs here, I’m starting to feel a little bad for lashing out like I did. :T
E: Nah, don’t. Everyone has those moments Arleen, and it’s better that we get them out rather than keep it all inside.
Arleen: Yeah, I guess you’re right… Thanks E.
E: No problem. *Rereads Q* My good heavens… It’s not… We’re not… *Covers mouth* I don’t even know what to say here.
Arleen: I think I’ve pushed that particular ship enough today, so….
E: I think I’m going insane… *Sighs and sits down* I honestly have no idea how to handle this.
Arleen: I mean, I tried supporting Hare and giving him the courage he needed to tell you, but, well… You saw how that turned out.
E: I… I guess… I really wish I could ask him myself, but… I just…
Arleen: I could try and help you muster up the courage and ask him… But maybe not right now. We’ve already had enough of that kinda stuff for one day.
E: Yeah… *Looks at list and sighs* I’ll just answer the rest of the shipping Qs later, I don’t wanna torture you any more.
Arleen: What? You’re not torturing me E. It’s fine, just move on to the next Q.
E: Eehh… Alright. Before I move to the next Q, can I make a comment on the new ship name?
Arleen: Go ahead.
E: Thanks. Cause Harvelyana is a new one. Usually it’s Elarvey, or Harveyana if I’m talking about it, this one’s new.
Arleen: I prefer the old names. Other people are free to use the new one, but I’m gonna stick to Elyarvey.
E: I clearly get no choice in the matter. I’m still the only one who calls it Harveyana… *Flushes* But it’s not like I ship it or anything!
Arleen: XD Sure sure, let’s just move on.
E: *embarrassed* Yeah… I’m on it.
Tech to E: Need me to help fix that computer you shoved off the table?
E: Eh? Nah, it’s fine… Probably.
Dr Hare: Why are you so mean to my laptop…
E: Sorry… I’m an awkward klutz…
Arleen: Seth could probably help ya out if you need it.
Fizzson: Y-yeah… Seth… Heh heh…
Dr Hare: It’s fine, it’s reenforced heavy-duty. For multiple reasons.
E: Heh heh… Sorryloveyoubye *scoots off*
Fizzson: Um… Did she just say-?
Arleen: Probably only in a friend sort of way. You know how she is.
Dr Hare: No, she says that all the time. It’s just platonic.
Fizzson: Ah, that makes sense.
Dr Hare: *sighs* Yes. Yes it does.
Fizzson: Next Q, or are there no more Qs?
E: Next Q. We have so many more Fizz.
Dr Hare: Abandon all hope all ye who enter here.
Red Tomato to BW: Shoobedodadadadypolalapopopiladoop
Black Widow: … What.
Fizzson: that sounds kinda like a song, but I don’t recognize it.
Black Widow: … Yeah, whatever. *Walks off*
E: You’re impossible!
Arleen: Widow is a… Very special type of person, huh?
E: Sassy person who doesn’t wanna be here.
Arleen: Yeah, pretty much.
To BB: do you know Holmes and E.Vile? If you do say that they are R O B U T T S (in honor of former player TC)
E: I miss TC… Oh
Binary Bard: Um… I know Holmes, I met his and his inventor before he went corrupt… I’ve only heard of E. Vile., so… Um… I kind of know them.
Fizzson: I’ve never heard of those two. Are they Poptropica villains?
E: Yeah., just lesser known. Holmes is an computer AI that got corrupted, created a bunch of robots and enslaved all the Poptropicans on GS Island, until the Rulers used an override and reverted him to a previous version. E.Vile… I really don’t know too much about him, but he had a robot army and was going to take over, but the Rulers took out all the robots.
Binary Bard: I was the first robot villains by the way.
Fizzson: Huh… The more ya know.
E: Poptropica has a thrilling history, but I only know so much. I traveled with the Rulers for a while, and now, since I’m with the villains, I’m learning more every day!
Fizzson: I can imagine.
To DH: DO YA KNOW DA WAE *click click click* KNUCKLES MEMES FOREVA!
Dr Hare: Oh good heavens…
E: I AM DA WAE!!
Arleen: Uh oh…
Fizzson: DE YOYOHS WEL KEEL DE EKIDNAS! YOYOYOYOYOH!!!!
Dr Hare: … This seems like a bad idea…
E: No! You do not know da wae! You cannot see da queen!
Dr Hare: You have no idea what you’re saying, do you.
E: … No.
Fizzson: It’s fine. Eyve’s Yoyoh clan is just for fun anyway. It’s not seriously meant to kill off the Uganda Knuckles meme.
E: Phew. Besides, you can’t kill memes, they just die in their own legs.
E: And scar you…
To myself: what am I even doing with my life
E: You are sending me humorous Qs and the like. Nothing wrong with that.
Arleen, Fizzson, & Despair: Agreed.
E: Jinx. Can you call jinx if you weren’t directly involved…? *Pauses* What am I doing with my life, geez…
Fizzson: I don’t think that’s how Jinxing works, and you’re doing all kinds of interesting things with your life.
E: Fair enough. And I’m not doing much, just coming by… Trying to do school… The AtV, I guess, but that’s not interesting because of me.
Fizzson: It’s still interesting, regardless. Anyways, next Q?
E: I suppose…
Dolphin Violinist 1. Spinjitzu or Airjitzu
E: I’m gonna say Spinjitzu, since I’m a seasons 0-2 die-hard.
Fizzson: Spinjitzu for me too. It’s just more iconic then airjitzu.
Arleen: Eh, I haven’t seen much Ninjago, so I don’t really have an opinion here.
Despair: … What’s Ninjago…?
Fizzson: Despair has never seen it to absolutely no one’s surprise.
E: Wait… Fizz, you’ve seen Ninjago?
Fizzson: Yes… Why do you ask?
E: … no reason. It’s not like I enjoy the show or that it was my major addiction for the past 6 years or anything…
Dr Hare: Sarcasm does not become you.
E: I beg to differ.
Smiley: Leave the sarcasm to the professionals, child.
E: I am the professional.
Dr Hare: … No.
Fizzson: Though the addiction might’ve been a bit far, I can’t blame you for liking it. Ninjago’s a really good show.
E: Yeah, addiction defiantly was a bit far… I try and avoid talking about it, but whatever. I still like the show, although it’s been a while since I’ve seen it.
Fizzson: That’s understandable.
E: Yeah… Anyways, my bratty childhood aside… Next Q?
Fizzson: Yeah, next Q.
2. Regular cake or bundt cake
E: All of the above pls.
Binary Bard: I wish we still had cake.
Dr Hare: For the last time, I didn’t eat it!
E: B, that was Pop and me…
Binary Bard: What?!
E: … Back to the Q then!
Fizzson: What’s a Bundt cake? I remember hearing that from Super Mario RPG, but I don’t actually know what it means.
E: It’s just a type of cake. I really don’t remember which one… I think that’s the one with the glaze and sort of a jello-esc mold… I dunno.
Fizzson: Sounds weird, but tasty. I haven’t tried it though, so I can’t exactly choose one over the other.
E: You haven’t tried normal cake?!
Fizzson: What? No! I was saying I haven’t tried Bundt cake, so it’d be unfair to choose normal cake over that when I haven’t tried it. -_-
Arleen: I knew what Fizz meant. I was just agreeing with it.
E: Oooooh… That makes way more sense. Oh man, I’m really out of it today, sorry guys…
Fizzson: It’s fine. Next Q?
E: Yeah, sorry, sorry.
3. Jedi, Sith, or Grey (google if necessary)
Dr Hare: No.
Despair: … I don’t know what any of that means….
E: Fizz, I’m putting you on get-Despair-to-watch-Star-Wars duty.
Fizzson: Oh believe me, this is just one to add to the list.
E: *smiles* Fair point. I’m… Probably a Jedi.
Binary Bard: Grey.
Black Widow: Grey.
Dr Hare: I’m not sure…
Director D: Sith.
E: *yelps and falls off the couch* WHEN YOU GET HERE
Arleen: D’s pretty good at showing up outta nowhere.
Fizzson: I’m guessing he didn’t want much to do with guests at the apartment.
Director D: He can also hear you. No, I was just occupied. Hello everyone.
Binary Bard: Um… Hi.
Dr Hare: I think El just died.
Fizzson: Sorry, D. Also, hi.
Arleen: Nice to see ya!
Director D: *nods* Anyways, I’m going out.
E: *sits up abruptly* What? You? Why? Where?
Director D: Yes, yes, because, tell you later. *walks out and shuts the door behind him*
E: … what the golden pizza…
Fizzson: You don’t think he’s finally going out with you-know-who, do you?
E: *smirks* Oh, they’ve been going out for a while. But… *Frowns* She’s in another dimension… What’s he up to?
Fizzson: Eh, we’ll find out at some point, I’m sure. For now, we have an AtV to get back to.
E: *uneasily* Yeah… I just hope he’s ok…
Dr Hare: He’s fine El, he can take care of himself.
E: Fair point.
4. Rebel, royal, or imperial
E: Um… Is the Star Wars or Ever After High?
Fizzson: Well, royals isn’t a Star Wars thing, so…
E: Well, Leia was a royal and Imperial definitely isn’t an Ever After High thing, so I dunno…
Fizzson: Let’s just assume this is a Discord thing… In which case, Rebels.
Smiley: Imperial… Which should come as no surprise.
Dr Hare: Rebel.
E: Probably forced Royal.
Binary Bard: Rebel, I guess.
Fizzson: That didn’t take long. Widow, are you gonna answer?
Black Widow: *shrugs* Rebel. Nothing special.
E: Who am I not surprised I’m the only royal in the AtV squad…
Fizzson: To be fair, you said forced royal.
E: Yeah… Cause I’m a wimp. I’m such a klutz they’d make me be a royal.
Fizzson: Well, next Q then?
Dr Hare: Hang on. El, you’re not a wimp.
E: Yeah, I kinda am. I’m scared of mannequins, remember? Lifeless humanistic creatures.
Arleen: There are plenty of people scared of mannequins, E. That doesn’t necessarily make you a wimp!
E: And heights and small spaces and I can’t even lift a teaspoon. I have no stamina or strength and I have no powers in a world of super powers. I dunno, I just… I’m pretty sure that constitutes being a wimp.
Dr Hare: El…
Arleen: People are also afraid of heights and small spaces, I think you’re exaggerating about your stamina and strength, and I don’t have super powers either. Just because you’re not “Special” E, doesn’t mean you’re a wimp!
E: I… I suppose… I’m really just… Not…
Dr Hare: *puts his hand on hers* Hey, listen to Fizz and Arleen, K? You’re not a wimp.
E: I guess… *Sighs* I got us off track again, sorry, sorry.
Fizzson: Yeah. We should get back to the AtV.
E: Yeah… Sorry, sorry… I’ll grab the next Q…
Fizzson: No need to apologize, E. Let’s just move on.
E: A-alright, yeah…
5. Let’s play art class 😀 draw something that represents yourself.
E: … I’ve got paper and crayons in the other room.
Fizzson: I love to draw! 😀
Arleen: Sometimes I draw to express my emotions. It can be pretty relaxing sometimes.
Despair: … I actually draw a lot in my spare time….
E: I draw Chibis during 3/4s of the school day.
Binary Bard: 3/4ths?
E: I draw comics too.
Black Widow: I draw.
Binary Bard: I’m decent.
Dr Hare: I… Can’t draw.
Arleen: Aw, sure ya can, Hare! It doesn’t matter how good you are, what’s important is that you enjoy it! 🙂
Dr Hare: Mmm.
E: Come on man, it’ll be fun! I’ll help if you need it.
Dr Hare: I… I guess…
Fizzson: Yeah, let’s do this!
*14 minutes later…*
E: I just drew a little chibi of myself. Then a little comic me. Then… I got bored.
Black Widow: *holds up a very realistic picture of a black widow spider*
Binary Bard: I just drew an owl…
Arleen: I drew a palm tree.
Despair: …I drew a picture of Fizzson…
Arleen: Aw, that’s nice. What about you, Fizz?
Fizzson: *Shows a picture of an unfamiliar girl with silver hair and a purple dress*
Arleen: Who’s that?
Fizzson: I dunno. I just kinda thought it up, I haven’t actually met someone like this.
E: Wacky. She doesn’t look familiar to me either…
Arleen: Strange. What did Hare draw?
Dr Hare: Just… It’s nothing, really.
Fizzson: c’mon, show us Hare.
Arleen: Yeah. We won’t judge.
E: Come on, please?
Dr Hare: *embarrassed* Fine… *He flips his paper around to show a bunny rabbit sitting on a flower, with a blonde pixie drifting overhead*
Fizzson: I don’t know why you were so nervous, that looks good!
Arleen: Yeah. For all your worrying, you did a good job!
Dr Hare: It’s not that good…
E: You kidding?! That’s… Holy snap, that’s gorgeous!
Dr Hare: *blushes* Thanks.
Despair: … I see what you did there…
Dr Hare and E: *in unison* Who did what where?
Despair: It’s not important… You should just get the next Q….
E: Well, I guess I-
E: Oh cheese and crackers! I’ll be back guys. *Walks off*
Despair: … A blonde pixie with a bunny? Very cute… And clever….
Arleen: Wha-? O.O How did I not see that?
Dr Hare: … *Blushes* Well… You see… Um…
Despair: It’s okay… We won’t tell E… And it’s still an amazing drawing regardless…
Dr Hare: Thanks.
Binary Bard: *smirks* I’d forgotten about the pixie thing…
Dr Hare: *blushes* Shut up…
Despair: … Guess we really should do the next Q now, huh…?
Dr Hare: Yeah, I guess…
E: *stomps back in and sits in a huff* I swear, if those girl scouts come one more time…
Binary Bard: And… Next Q before somebody dies.
6. Pick an elemental power, any power 😉
Fizzson: Going off the four avatar elements, air.
Despair: Water or air… I can’t decide between the two….
Smiley: Earth or fire.
Arleen: You’ve answered a surprising number of these random Qs, Smiley.
Smiley: Boredom does that to a demon…
E: Ah, boredom. Motivation of the masses. At any rate, I’d be… Probably Earth, maybe water.
Dr Hare: Air, I guess.
Binary Bard: Fire maybe.
Black Widow: Earth.
Fizzson: That was fast. 😐 Guess we should move on…
E: Gotta go fast.
7. Mario kart or Super Smash Bros.
E: Pop would say Mario Kart if he were here, no surprise.
Fizzson: Smash bros.
Arleen: Mario Kart.
Smiley: Neither. I do not have interest in video games.
Despair: … I haven’t played either of them… Though I’d like to at some point….
E: Oh that’s right! We were gonna play video games! Are we still on for that?
Fizzson: About that… We might not have time for that anymore… I kinda wanna get back to AAaF ASAP.
E: What’s wrong?
Dr Hare: Is it that thing you can’t tell us about?
Fizzson: It’s not that I can’t tell you… I just don’t think you’d believe me if I did tell you….
E: We’ll try. Fizz, I live in the impossible, I’ll believe you.
Fizzson: Alright… You know how Seth is a spirit possessing a robot suit?
Fizzson: Well… From that phone call I got earlier… I found out that… Seth isn’t actually dead… He’s still alive.
E: … Ok.
Fizzson: ._. Not the reaction I expected, but anyways… While Seth and I were talking, someone who wanted to kill him saw him, so he ran… I sent a friend to go get him somewhere safe, but I’m still worried about him….
E: That… Is real bad. I don’t blame you for being worried.
Fizzson: Yeah… I just hope my friend got to him in time…
E: Yeah… That’s… scary.
Dr Hare: I still can’t figure out the living spirit thing.
E: My brain refuses to compute it. But more pressing concerns… Fizz, if you need to go, I think that’s a perfectly normal reason.
Fizzson: I… I have faith in my friend, Ultia. She’ll make sure Seth is safe and sound. The anxiety is just kinda… Getting to me, y’know?
E: If anyone around here knows anxiety, it’s me. It’s pretty scary when stuff like that happens, I know. The offer still stands, if you need to go back, it’s OK.
Fizzson: It’s fine. Besides, we’ve only got like one other Q left anyways.
E: Yeah. Just let me know if you need anything, OK?
Fizzson: Alright… Thanks E. Anyways… You guys gonna answer this Q?
E: You’re welcome. Do you mean the current Q or the next one I’ve got on my phone here?
Fizzson: Current Q. None of the AtV crew answered it yet.
Dr Hare: Anyways… I’m more partial to Smash, don’t tell Pop.
E: No preference, it just depends on who playing with.
Binary Bard: Both.
Black Widow: Meh.
Fizzson: Simple enough. Next Q?
E: I’m on it.
have you seen the final 2 episodes of season of ninjago? If so, REENACT IT PLEEAASSEEEEEEEEEEEEE *screams*
E: *giggles* Ah, season 2.
Fizzson: I don’t know it from heart like you probably do, and most of the AAaF team doesn’t know much about Ninjago in general.
E: *blushes, embarrassed* Um… In that case, let’s just skip…
Fizzson: Well, is that it then?
E: Yeah, that’s all of them.
Fizzson: In that case, I’m gonna go and check up on Seth. I don’t wanna ruin Despair’s fun, though, so she can stay here if she wants.
Despair: I don’t know… I do want to play video games with E… But I’m worried for Seth too…
Arleen: Just stay here and have fun, Despair. We’ll let you know if Seth’s okay when we find out, okay?
Arleen: It’ll be fine, Despair. Seth’ll understand!
Despair: … Alright. I’ll stay.
E: Alright. *Smiles* I’m cool with whatever.
Fizzson: Then we’re off. *opens a portal back to AAaF* You heading back with me, Arleen?
Arleen: Yep! C’mon Smiley.
Smiley: Very well…
Fizzson: This was fun. We should do it again sometime, E… Preferably in a more controlled scenario then you sneezing to our place.
E: Agreed, agreed and couldn’t agree more.
Dr Hare: We should sort it out soon.
E: See you guys!
Fizzson: See ya around. *walks through portal*
Arleen: Bye, guys! *Follows Fizzson*
Smiley: Farewell… *Follows Arleen*
*The portal closes behind them*
E: Alright alright alright! *Turns to Despair* So, whatcha wanna play first?
Despair: Ooh, I don’t know… There are so many, I just don’t know if I could choose… Why don’t you choose? 🙂
E: Okie dokie! We’ll hafta wait until Pop gets back before Mario Kart, so how about… Smash Brawl?
Despair: Sounds good to me! *For a brief moment, Despair’s eyes turn from black with white pupils to white with black pupils*
E: *blinks* You Ok?
Despair: Yes, I’m fine… Why do you ask?
E: … Oh, nothing! Your eyes just flashed, it’s probably nothing, don’t worry about it. *Hands her a remote*
Despair: If you say so… Let’s do this!
E: (Something seems off… Time to do what I always do.) *smiles* Ok, let’s do this!
Despair: I’m so excited! 🙂 *Eyes flash again, for longer this time.*
E: Um… Despair, you sure you’re Ok?
Despair: Yeah, I’m fine… Though I feel much happier then I’m used to being.
E: Weird. That means you’re having a good time, right?
Despair: Yeah… Video gaming is one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in a very… Very long time.
E: *smiles* I’m glad. *Calls* Harvey!
Dr Hare: *pokes his head inside* Yeah?
E: Wanna play?
Dr Hare: Sure?
E: Are you Ok with Harvey playing?
Despair: Of course. The more the merrier! 🙂
E: Awesome! *Holds out a remote to Dr Hare* Let’s do this!
Dr Hare: *takes it and smiles* Thanks.
E: K, Despair, you played this before?
E: Mk, so you hold the remote like so… *Holds her Wiimote sideways* then you use the plus pad to move, that’s fairly straightforward. You push the 2 button to attack and 1 to use special moves, like ranged attacks. Each character has different moves and attacks. The button on the back shields, but if you shield too long, it does damages. You try and hit everyone else so they die and you have 3 lives. And don’t fall off the map, that kills you. Um… It’s mostly just learn as you go, so… *Jazz hands* Yay.
Despair: Okay then.. Let’s play.
E: Yup! *Turns on the Wii* You Ok with random, 5 minute time limit?
E: Then let’s do this thing!
*Much later, Despair has gone home*
E: *tying her hair back in a ponytail* Man… that was intense.
Dr Hare: *pokes his head into the room* Sorry, were you talking to me?
E: *shrugs* Sure. I was just kind of thinking out loud, but I’d like someone to talk to.
Dr Hare: Sure. About what?
E: Um… *turns* How’s your day going?
Dr Hare: It’s going OK. You?
E: I’m breathing. That seems good.
Dr Hare: What’s wrong?
Dr Hare: … That bad?
E: Fine… rough day after the AAaF squad left and just an all around intense day. Mistakes have been made and I’m overthinking everything possible.
Dr Hare: Even this conversation?
E: Harvey, you have no idea.
Dr Hare: Oh.
E: Sorry, that was…. Something.
Dr Hare: It’s OK, don’t worry about it.
E: I suppose…
Dr Hare: Can I ask you something?
E: (Uh oh.) Go ahead.
Dr Hare: So… we’ve known each other a while…
E: *freezes* Y-yeah?
Dr Hare: And… No offense, but you talk a little different. It’s like… this mix of modern slang, Shakespeare, proper English and the occasional British term. Why?
E: … That’s it?
Dr Hare: *baffled* What?
E: Crap! Sorry, I didn’t mean it to come out that way! I just thought… *facepalms* I am a train wreck. Yeah, I do talk a little… weird.
Dr Hare: Why?
E: Well, I grew up in an American family with German roots, but my dad works with technical things, my mom’s big on English, has a degree, is also a writer, I listened to only Harry Potter books on audio books and read a bunch of British books, I like DanTDM’s voice, I’ve tried to imitate it a few times, now I’m big on Doctor Who… Most of the time when I’m using a British Term, I don’t even notice.
Dr Hare: Makes sense.
E: And the Shakespeare… Well, I started doing classes for it at age 13, started performing the plays at 14, been in it for the past 3 years. And the slang is cause of my gosh darn friends. Why are they like this?! I had impeccable English until I came back into the school system!
Dr Hare: *smiles* Right, I keep forgetting you homeschooled.
E: *sighs* Anyways, enough of my rambling…
Dr Hare: No, I like your rambling.
E: … At the risk of sounding rude, what is wrong with you.
Dr Hare: *laughs*
E: *grins* Sorry.
Dr Hare: Totally fine. Sometimes people need to talk. Besides, you needed to distract yourself.
E: Great, I’m friends with a psychiatrist.
Dr Hare: *makes a serious face* Tell me about your mother…
E: *laughs* Stop it, you’re the worst!
Dr Hare: *grins* You know it.
E: *shakes her head, still laughing* Good heavens. *sighs happily* Anyways, what were we talking about before this?
Dr Hare: Um… Homeschooling, I guess.
E: …I miss homeschooling. It was a lot less stressful, but… I missed my friends. Besides, I couldn’t graduate high school as it was. Even now… *waves hand* It’s ruddy complicated. Let’s not get into that.
Dr Hare: Why not?
E: Because it makes me want to break things.
Dr Hare: Ah.
E: *pauses* Waitasecond… I never finished the AtV, did I?
Dr Hare: Um….
E: I KNEW I FORGOT SOMETHING! *runs off*
Dr Hare: … You’re going to pass out, you know that, right?!
E: IT’S OK, IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE
Dr Hare: That’s not a good thing!
I hope you liked this. Have a great day, because I am tired and this is already 8188 words. I’m going to actually take Arleen’s advice and sleep for once. So g’night!
PS: ALSO! Guess who missed a couple of Vampi’s Qs! *raises hand* I’m so sorry! I’ve been such a stress ball this week… I’ll throw them into next weeks, promise! Love you all, bai!
