It's Halloween! Mark sets up some decorations around his home portal and waits for Trick or Treaters from the Nexus
Thursday, August 16th, 2007
2:13 pm
Mark enters the Sanctuary on a slow day. In fact, it's so slow that he's the only one in the room. Well, almost alone. The TARDIS is standing in a corner.

Sesame Street being the height of Mark's childhood television entertainment, he doesn't know the TARDIS as a time machine. It is an imposing curiosity and, after circling it a couple times, pushes on the door. Oh dear, someone left it ajar! Wondering what would happen if he actually called the police from this box, he peeks inside.

Current Mood: curious

Things Mark is not allowed to do in the Nexus:

1) Not allowed to use cheese in any drink served to anyone in the Sanctuary, except perhaps self.

2) Not allowed to blame idea of cheese drink on anyone.

3) Neither Isis nor Eiko particurally want "a piece of this".

4) Not allowed to be "The King of No Pants".

5) Even if wearing a kilt.

6) Pants' problem is not that he needs a makeover.

7) Not allowed to take Inky to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to "help him find a date".

14) Guinness does not need "bling".

16) Not allowed to use Clair's MRI to find out if leftovers are still good.

17) Not allowed to train Guinness to be a "hot single lady detection dog".

18) Not allowed to borrow Clair's actuators for "just a quick trip to the store".

22) Not allowed to give Inky this, or any other drink.

23) Even if it will make him be able to see the future.

24) Replacing all of Clair's needles with knitting needles, sewing needles, or plastic straws is not funny.

25) Neither Clair's nor Otto's, nor Pants' actuators need "bling" in the form of glue on rhinestones, puffy glitter paint, or diamond pendants.

Give me a pairing, a character, or whatever, and get a one (or two!) line fic!

You can ask for more than one! It doesn't have to be from my pup list, but it'll give you an idea of what I can write.

I don't have a formal list of pups, but here they are off the top of my head:

Jose Cuervo
Savannah Grey
Savannah's cat Cosette
Isaac Grey
Kate Martinelli

...I think that's all of 'em...

I'm writing from Clair's computer, today, and I'm very short. I mean, shorter than usual. I'm about...well, I'm guessing I'm about four inches tall, like a smurf or something. I'm typing by jumping on the keys, don't ask how I'm able to hit the shift key. I'm not sure myself!

Apparently there was some sort of flower in the Sanctuary, its pollen makes people tiny. Alistair also was made small last night, and it wasn't so bad. We went swimming in the sink, and Otto came to rescue me after awhile. Clair gave me some kimwipes and I fashioned some clothes for myself, but skirts are about all I'm capable of making.

Guess there's not much for me to do but sit around and wait to grow big again.

A little Original Characters Worksheet
List original characters:
01. Mark
02. Savannah
03. Isaac
04. Danielle
05. Guinness
06. Harriet
07. Dan
08. Dr. Clair Watson of the Evil Shop
09. Dr. T.

01) Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 8? (Harriet or Dr. Clair.)

Harriet definately has more patience than Clair does. Clair likes to do her own thing, and even though she'd be a great asset to whatever college hired her as far as research work goes, she probably wouldn't be a very good lecturer. And she hates grading papers!

What subjects would they teach?
Harriet would probably be in humanities, English or Cultural Studies or something. Clair? Biology.

02) Do you think 2 is hot? (Savannah)
Savvy doesn't strike me as overly attractive. She's slim, but her arms and legs are a bit too long, her hair is always a mess, and she's got quite a bit of acne going on. Maybe once she grows into her frame and her hormones even out, she'll be good looking.

03) 4 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed? (Danielle and Dr. Clair.)

Danielle wouldn't be in a position to send Clair on a mission for anything, except if it was Z in Danielle's body, talking through her to Clair. The only situation in which Danielle would ask Clair for anything is if Danielle ended up in hospital and asked Dr. Clair for some water or more morphine. And Clair could easily complete that mission.

04) What is or would be 9's favorite book? (Doc T.)

A true story adventure travel log, I think.

05) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around? (Savannah and Harriet.)

Savannah swears fealty only under duress, though she's under that a lot right now. Harriet would help Savannah as is her nature, but swearing loyalty to a kid isn't very common and Harriet wouldn't see a reason to.

06) For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should he share a studio apartment with 6 or with 7? (Guinness and Heather or Dan.)

Dan is allergic to dogs. Achoo! *lightningbolt* so Harriet would probably be the better choice.

07) 2 , 7 and 8 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss? (Savvy, Dan and Clair)

They go to McDonalds. They discuss the ethics of human testing and experimentation. Dan and Savvy take one side and Clair takes the other. Clair probably ends up storming out and Savvy and Dad share a high-five, until they realize that their ride has driven off.

08) 3 challenges 1 to a duel. What happens? (Isaac and Mark.)

They have a pun war. Isaac wins, three hours later.

09) If 1 stole 8 's most precious possession, how would she/he get it back? (Mark and Clair)

Mark would consider it a fantastic prank to play on his sister's alternate, but Clair would take it back while Mark is asleep (she probably drugged him, and gave him some stubborn virus while she was at it). Mark would consider it worth it.

10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 4 both attain what they most desire. (Dan and Danielle)

Alternating Current. Oh, you didnt' see that one coming?

11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together? (Danielle and Mark.)

Mark wants to BBQ but has no grill, oh noes!

12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along? (Dan)

Dan is a fast moving guy, feels he deserves everything and that everything he does is completely justifiable, and will flirt with anything female. So, it'd be a long weekend.

13) If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be? (Isaac.)

Teach me Spanish!

14) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 1? (Mark.)

Mark has been drawn by octopus_hubris

15) If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be? (Savannah and Danielle or Guinness.)

She'd side with the dog. Danielle would be too bossy and a bit too gullable for Savannah to find likeable. True, Savvy hasn't been as brainwashed as Danielle has, but would consider her trust in Z to be a flaw.

16) What might 9 shout while charging into battle? (Dr T)

For the Laaaaab!

17) If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose? (Clair)

..."She blinded me with Science?"

18) 1, 6, and 9 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it? (Mark, Harriet, and Dr T.)

Mark and Harriet are both very nice people and would be willing to give said pancake to Dr T, as long as they didn't know what she does for a living. Even then, Mark might just let her have it, as she is a lady and an attractive one, at that.

19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 5? (Savannah and Guinness, oh boy)

"Hey puppy, hello puppy, silly puppy, you wanna go for a walk? Do ya? Do ya?" He'd be smitten.

20) What would 5 most likely be arrested for? (Guinness)

Walking without a leash.

21) What is 6's secret? (Harriet)

She really really likes french fries. Dipped in mayo.

22) If 1 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first? (Mark and Dr. T.)

Dr. T. She has longer legs than Mark does.

23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8? (Dan or Clair)

This version of Dr. Clair, who doesn't have actuators, isn't all that comforting as a bodyguard.
Dan, with his lightning powers, would be just the guy.

So someone was shooting darts at people in the Sanctuary last night. Tranquilizer darts. Everyone got hit, and when we woke up, nothing was different. I even checked my wallet - everything was there.

The shooter was a slim redheaded woman, not my sister, but Clair: you may have another alternate out there, I know how your kind like your tranqs.

And I'm starting to wonder: what happened to the Anti Violence Field? The place is getting dangerous...

Mark has flowers and a couple packages, he picks a time of day he's pretty sure Clair will be awake at, and knocks on her door.

For Ransom.
Dear Guardians:

It is an unfortunate situation: your brother (or in your case in-law, dear Otto) has seen to it that I must not be in possession of what must be one of the most vital culinary instruments ever invented: a special cooker for hummingbird egg omelets. Surely you must know of my hummingbird henhouse I'm keeping on the third story next to the greenhouse and estate bathroom. You know, the one with the claw foot tub and gold-plated handles. My little humming friends have provided me with the best ingredients for bite-sized omelets that I've ever encountered, so it's a shame that your brother has denied me this specialized equipment.

Once he extracted me and the device from my room in the hot tub (with, a most barbaric instrument called a plunger), he's taken to locking up this culinary device in the safe in his room. I have been able to pick the combination lock on the safe and have dragged him over for a retinal scan, but the last, a voice activation code, I cannot seem to make him say. I have tried Clair's torture technique of rapidly palpating the bottoms of his bare feet, he unfortunately only makes clucking noises and says "stop it, you stupid mollusck" rather a lot. Apparently, Clair knows a secret that I do not.

Therefore, I am afraid it comes to this. I am holding your brother for ransom in one of Clair's extra white rooms. He is, I fear, giving me a headache, so my patience wears thin. I require fifty pounds of fresh (not previously frozen, please) shelled tiger prawns delivered to me within the next twenty four hours, or I may start experimenting with Clair's new little toys.

This vial is a bright green, it fascinates me.

Domestic Troubles?
So pet-sitting isn't going to well. For those who don't know, my eyesight isn't that great but instead of being a geek and wearing glasses like my sister wearing some cool shades, I stick pieces of plastic in my eye. Well, the dear Inky the not-quite-an-octopus made off with my contacts case this morning, he wanted to use it to cook hummingbird eggs in the microwave, and when I told him no, he took off with the case and lodged himself in one of the jets of the hot tub. No amount of water pressure seems to be able to blow him out, I'm searching for a plunger.

I went into the sanctuary to walk Guinness for five minutes today, only to see Doctor Octavius who is Pants attack Norman the God Thing with some sort of liquid. Just threw it right in his face, and Norman screamed as it burned his skin right off! I have no idea why Pants would do this - weren't they business or research partners of some sort? And aren't you supposed to test products like that for reactions on a place that won't be noticable, not the face?

Such an event makes me really doubt the existance of an anti-violence field. True, any Sanctuary property seems to repair itself as soon as it breaks, and the food and drink appears out of nowhere, but people seem to get hurt in there all the time. Perhaps it's less of a preventative field and more like an unwritten code of conduct. I have not actually tested it out - thrown a punch at someone just to see if it'd connect, and I'm not about to either. I've managed to suffer, while not dangerous injury, enough embarassment for rather minor offenses. When gods and magic-workers and People Who are Taller Than Me are around, it's not safe for me to be trying such experiments.

But I'm still curious, apparently my sister and I have more in common than I really notice. I hope she's having fun in Hawaii.

As one final effort to drive home the fact that I'm not buddy-buddies with my sister and Otto, they plan to kidnap me, tomorrow. At work or on the way home or at home...somewhere. It's a surprise, that's supposed to be part of it, so I'm not standing around beforehand, checking my watch and pacing about. Really, though. It's going to be pretty fun.

I've moved the necessary stuff over to their place, leaving many things behind so as to give the impression that I was indeed stolen away. Half a bag of dogfood that will go bad. Quite a bit of food that will meet the same fate. I took the cut diamonds over, left the rest of the big stone in the garden, doesn't really look like much if one didn't know their geology. The bar...well, my staff are good resourceful people, they'll figure it out.

Media attention is getting on my nerves. The news crews, then everyone else wants to know my story - what did Clair do to me? Did she experiment on my brain? Do I have any robotic parts now? ...Who fed my dog while I was gone? Good question. Um...no comment. So yeah, I'll be glad to get out of here.

One thing that does get me down is that I'm going to miss the Superbowl on Sunday. Maaaaan...

Current Mood: bummed about Superbowl XL

I drew Some the Grue for some_thing. It's dark, you may get eaten by yadda yadda.

Nine out of ten Nexus citizens agree, Some is a nice fellow, when he's not hunting and eating people.

You know you drink too much tea when...

-You ski uphill.

-You speed walk in your sleep.

-You answer the door before people knock.

-You just completed another sweater and you don't know how to knit.

-You have to watch movies in fast-forward.

-The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.

-You can type 60 words a minute with your feet.

-You don't need a hammer to pound in nails.

-You've worn out the handles of all your cups.

-You've built a miniature city out of dead tea bags.

-People get dizzy just watching you.

-You don't wait for the water to boil anymore.

-You don't even bother with water anymore.

...Love ya, Clair!
