Good point. We must always pick on Thad. We'll only get to do it for so long.

When he goes crazy (not Mad) the fun will be all over.

It's just as well... when Thad goes mad we've got bigger things to worry about than just using a beating stick.[/b]

I keep hoping maybe him and Xerox'll go Mad at the same time- THEN we'll see some fireworks. :twisted:

No sorry. See I have this list of things that must happen before Thad goes crazy (not Mad). Among them are his dad coming back and an event so big that it will happen

Fine- goes *insane*, happy? Technically Xerox is Mad- just constantly looping between stages one and Two... which means he;s been 'revving' for the big breakthrough for, what, eight years?

Thad is nearly the same as Xerox except that he has a mental block instead of a biochemical one. Basically he already is mad-mutating cats, fixing the machine that supercharges your spirit and kills you, working on the time machine, etc.

Shiesta... I'ma gonna need to introduce some new sane characters just to balance out the madkids we already have/are gonna get, aren't I?

Well, I mean I was planning on doing it anyway... but still...

Coming soon: Could David be getting a sidekick? Not if he can help it!

The worst thing? if Xerox goes off the Cure, he won't necessarily go Mad yet... maybe not for weeks. Going off the cure would just mean he's prime to go off. He'd still need a trigger.
Worst thing? The Trigger? One word almost anyone could say to him, by accident.

I could see it.

Nope, nope- here's a clue: Whatever he found out when he was eighteen, drove him insane. he was given a small dose of the cure, just before he hit phase three.
I have a story behind that, but I can't post it yet... :(

And let's all welcome the most recently arrived guest to the party: The third and youngest, as well as the most deceased, sibling of the Toboz family: Sarah Brandy Toboz, dressed up as Angel Trainee Flonne, from the Disgaea series of games.

Incidentally, for the many that don't know about these games, Flonne is actually NOT a magical girl, although she admittedly has a lot of traits of one. What she IS is trouble, however.

Let's all let the littlest Toboz feel welcome, shall we?

Gee! Cute. And of course, poor Delta is in the middle of it...
I'm starting to think Desius gets his bad luck from him...

Perhaps. Heh.

Actually, originally Sarah was going to fake-threaten That Guy, but he ended up retreating to the Kitchen and she couldn't have made her entrance there.

You would not BELIEVE the trouble she had sneaking out of the upper realms to get to this party. The new Deva they have watching the front door is a lot more capable than the cherub they used to rely on.

Oh yeah...did I forget to mention? Our little SOS brigade came with a 6th member. Introducing the mystery cast member as Ryoko!

Try and guess who it is!

Thanks for overturning the punch bowl, Toboz! There won't be any left by the time Janitor goes for karaoke... Just the stuff in the sprinkler systems. Heh heh. :twisted:

Well, he needed to overturn SOMETHING.

We can't have the only normal guy in the whole place get away from the knife-wielding crazy person so easily, can we?

Poor Richard ('s Almanac!). One of these days I'm gonna sit down and write out the story of how he and Lady Drezebel got together. He actually needs to have a good moment or two to balance out the rough times he has mostly in this game.

I actually think of him kinda like Miles Edgeworth, except a doctor.

He's not very social, but he's formal. He likes being a gentleman. And for the most part, in the game he's not at his best. He's got a Mad Scientist-shaped chip in his shoulder, which may/may not ever get explained.

What's really odd is that he's dating a Mad, so he's in an awkward position. I think if we ever saw him on other circumstances, he'd be a bit more likable. But we don't, so he isn't.

Glee! Miles! *floaty hearts*
Uh- what? Sorry, drifted off there...

Huh. The funny thing is, if he had met Andrew in any other circumstance, they would probably get along very well.

Bah! Edgeworth.

You know...now THERE'S an idea. I could have done a theme costume around those games. I could see it: David as Phoenix, Richard as Miles, Lady D as Mia, and possibly Sarah as either Maya (she's actually a bit too young) or Pearl (She's actually a bit too old).

It's not a perfect fit, but it would work. Heh... I could even have had Lady D nagging Nega-Tinker to go as Manfred Von Karma!

Although if I was gonna do that, I would have also needed someone to go as Emma Skye. If only so I could have them talk about Mad Scientific Investigation to other people. And possibly spray them with her luminol testing fluid.

Andrew. Just.... Andrew. XD
But if that failed, you could have him go as Apollo Justice. Desius would make a good Dick Gumshoe...

*Grins* So you're saying that Andrew would have been willing to dress up as a girl?

Apollo would have been an interesting character, but if I had an Apollo I'd have wanted to have a Trucy as well, and that means I would have had to bring someone else into the role. Chicgeek would have been the obvious choice, given her brand of mad science (I'm predicting she could have put together an amazing Mr. Hat) But she was one of the hostesses, and that means we couldn't have showboated very much.

Ah well. What might have been.

Remember what your momma said about switching genders? That one day it would stick?

In case it's not obvious: The force field is opaque on the inside (so Richard thinks he, 'Yuki', and 1 knife-wielding psycho are alone), but clear on the outside (so everyone else can watch the performance.)
