Witness: Andrew getting mad at someone. Say, have any of teh characters actiually *seen* him on the job before? :D
Clever Des, clever.

Edit/Disclaimer: Andrew isn't being mean, he's just stressed- he as only so much enjoyment to get out o his night all of a sudden...

Or are you asking for the sake of the game and I've just completely followed the wrong tangent here?

PS. This is not to say I chose a character from Chic's, I could have picked one of my own, but.. oh hell, it's giving me a headache on being vague. Lets just say it can be anyone. Jeez try to avoid spoilers nd you talk in circles.


Hee! Just asking out of curiosity, just for the sake of figuring out purposes. Man, you're right-that is a lot of characters to choose from! And like you say, if someone actually wanted that character in the wars-spiked candy, cloning, what have you-there's always a way. Are we not Mad?

Witness: Claire upset. I'd just like to say that under any other circumstances, she'd probably start crying at a reprimand like that, but then again, under other circumstances she wouldn't be trying to manage Andrew.

Not, of course, that she'd be upset by, say, the DEAD BODY OUTSIDE, but heaven forbid said dead body make Andrew upset.

Witness: Why Fredric sticks to his Da. :D
Because he know they're both just freaked out and technically worrying way too much about other people.... although he also seems to realize how much more punchable he is now he's not all little an' fluffy.

I hope that helps- I figurd that Fredric is experienced at soothing ruffled feathers. Mads are, as a group, fairly socially inept... one way of another. And YES, Claire is a freakin' Honorary Mad or something to Fredric.
Edit: ... and I want them to be friends, due to the fact that they could be a transmorgification ray and a costume change away from a really enertaining scooby doo parody. XD

Ok, I think everything's patched up now. Fredric is pretty good at having everyone get along, which is good, because Claire seems to have the social incompetence of a Mad, even if she isn't one.

And there certainly are a lot of transmogrification rays at the party...

Fredric is as stubborn as an average donkey and sensible enough to warp back around to Insane. XD

Hmm.... the question is, who makes the better Scooby?

It's your character-rename her if you wish. Personally-I don't see anything wrong with her being Alice. It's just a coincidence. I kind of like the name, myself.
After all, the little mad from the orphanage that gave David his Polarion Resequencer is named Emily-just like Chic, although very few people call her that. And it's no big thing at all.


Mmm. If Janet gets the chance to rename that identity, she'll go for it. Whether here or in the Practice Wars... Speaking of which... *pokes Timmy* *runs*

Hmm... I wonder where Desius is? I dunno... I was kinda excited to find out more about the whole thing.

*Sighs* Hmm...

Yeah, I think we'll be having the party thread last a bit longer than planned. But a murder mystery is so cool!
And, you know-I expect Andrew or Xerox to start rounding up the people in the photos soon. Wonder what they'll make of Des not being there?

I'm not exactly sure, but according to the admin panel, he last logged in 5 days ago. Maybe he's on vacation or something.

*Sighs*

Well, as regrettable as it is, the Halloween Party thread seems more or less dead'd at the immediate moment. People keep waiting for Desius to post and he seems to have vanished. (I'd suspect Black Ops abduction except the job seems too clean.)

If there isn't any activity in the Party thread from ANYONE by November 2nd, I'd like to ask that it get locked, and we officially kick off the Mad Sci Grand Prix thread to replace it. It kinda makes little sense to have a halloween party thread last into the middle of November, does it?

*shrugs*

That sounds fine with me, as long as there's a provision that we'll be able to re-open the thread at some point after Desius comes back.

I want to know the solution to the murder!

I have mixed feelings. I know Des would be here if he could, something must have come up. But we can't wait forever. And I don't want to delay the Frankenstein Grand Prix.
But yeah, if we have to close the thread, okay. As long as we can reopen the thread later-even if just briefly. Enough to wrap up the murder mystery.
And Jane and I need to post costume contest winners.
I'll abide by whatever the majority wants to do.

Here's what I'll do: As of today, Desius has been gone for a week. If he's not back by Monday, I'll lock and unstick the party threads, and we can start the Grand Prix. When Desius returns, we can unlock the threads, finish the mystery, post the contest winners, and wrap up the party.

Does that sound OK to everyone?

Roger doger! That sounds fair to me. It'll be nice to start the Prix.

I'm fine with it.

I want Desius to come back as much as anyone, but at the same time I don't want the Prix to start sometime after Bluelight ends, for reasons.

And I kinda don't want to start the Prix with the party thread still somewhat active if we can avoid it. It wouldn't do to have people's attention split over 3 threads...

Okies. I'll add another post tomorrow, then. I - er, Janitor refuses to let Thad continue on kilt-less for an undefined amount of time. Although it's been awfully amusing thus far. ;3

OK-- thread paused, until further notice. Desius, when you come back, post (or PM me) and I'll unpause it again.

Till then...
