  1. Story, Monday December 11, 2017

    I've always loved playing the atypical characters, and atypical games in general. I recall one rather memorable Elfquest game at GenCon, a couple of decades ago, where all of the player characters were five years old. Except me. I was two. Made for some great role-playing! The Toon scavenger hunt with my sister playing Twoflower and his Luggage had several amusing characters drawn from TV and movies. I think the Spock-expy finally losing his cool and doing the classic cartoon mouth-open-wide-as-whole-head scream-that-blows-everything-backwards-away-as-if-a-hurricane-hit was the best.

    Hmm, I think we're in agreement in general here.... Yup, looks like it. Again, in order to make any calls, she'll have to stay out of the direct fighting, especially given that the Aberrations would probably consider a "baby hunter" to be fair game under the terms of their contract. She's smart (and genre-savvy) enough to know that someone untrained like her would be more of a hindrance than a help if she got into the fighting, and she'll avoid it as long as she can, but I'm pretty sure she'll stay within sight to be able to give more warning shouts or provide a distraction if it comes down to needing one desperately enough.

    No, but she does need to stay out of the fight to make the call. Which might mean a strategic withdrawl far enough away to make getting pulled into it, hit by flying monsters or debris, or spotted by aberrations as a "baby hunter" and attacked less likely.
  4. What Are You Listening To?

    Thank you! Always good to learn a new correct attribution.
  5. Things That Are Just Annoying

    "Madness was never this good!" Sorry, just really, really looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas episode, quotes keep leaking out. ;-)
  6. What Are You Listening To?

    Much more tolerable if you know the lyrics. :-) You gotta get up, gotta get up, gotta get up in the morning! Gotta get up, gotta get up, gotta get up today! Some day I'm gonna murder the bugler! Some day they're gonna findhim dead! I'll stomp upon his reveille And tromp upon it heavily And spend the rest of my life in bed! At least, that's the way I was taught it went.... ;-)
  7. What Are You Watching?

    Posting a day late, but last night the original version of the movie of Annie was on (as opposed to the recent newer take). I hadn't seen it in years. There were a lot of details I'd forgotten, but the music is good, with lyrics I can still remember all these years later, and seeing it as both a look back at the Depression era and as a movie made in the 1980s was an interesting contrast. Quite enjoyable!
  8. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Virtual hugs to both of you. Sorry you're in pain, and I wish there were something I could do to help. If my sympathies and good wishes can help, you have them.
  9. Things You Find Amusing

    Of course! So are Gremlins, Sneakers, and Nightmare Before Christmas. Any others that should be on the list?
  10. Story Friday December 15, 2017

    And she probably still has that number in her cell. I mean, would *you* delete it? I wasn't thinking she'd just run away home and forget about Susan, but she won't charge into the fray immediately. My guess would be, she'll call (or try to call) Mr. Verres's number first, and then try to keep out of the fighters' way while also trying to help out with shouts and soccer balls if and when they might be helpful. The problem for her will come when one or more of the aberrations notice that's what she's doing....

    I wonder if the swimsuit being such a skimpy one is also because of stereotypes about ditziness?
  12. Story Friday December 15, 2017

    There was a novelty song in the 50s or 60s with an exchange of "See you later, alligator!" and "After a while, crocodile!" I think, after falling flat on her face, Susan would not reject a hand offered to help her up. She'd reach for her hand sanitizer as soon as possible afterwards, but given the circumstances, as soon as possible may not be real soon.... Such training is available in Chicagoland. Bats can be very useful. (Especially magically or technologically supercharged bats....) Diane is not a fighter. She didn't hesitate to run for help and to get away during the Not-Tengu incident. I don't think she'll charge into battle willy-nilly. If it were almost anyone else in the cast, I would think that Susan was realizing how gorgeous Adrian looks inhis natural form. I like this idea. It is now my headcanon unless/until proven otherwise. We haven't seen anything to indicate that the fairies work in different ways. We haven't necessarily seen anything to refute it, either, I suppose, but I feel like if that was the intent it would have come up sooner. Ooh, hadn't thought about that being a reason for Susan basically learning Nanase's fairydoll spell, except with explosions instead of persistence.
  13. Story, Wednesday December 13, 2017

    Anyone who knows the Harry Dresden novels may remember the scene where an ancient trove of knowledge in the body of a gradeschooler, when put into a circumstance where magic power was very, very limited, was able to continue to fight with magic against multiple enemies through sheer efficiency. She could make the most of what little she had to an awesome degree. I suspect Pandora might be similar, not so much more powerful as knowing how to do what she wants more easily and requiring less power to do it.

    We do have confirmation here that Susan can use more than one magically summoned weapon at once. She still has the sword, and was able to summon and use a throwing hammer. Being able to summon and use a fairy at the same time means she's got a pretty good arsenal for one magic-user, let alone summoning multiple fairies at once!
  15. Things You Find Amusing

    I had a bear as a client! No, not as a patient. More correctly, I had a Bear as a client. As in a football guy. He had a teeny little five to six week old puppy, absolutely adorable! Not quite as glamorous as the vet I know who saw Oprah's pets, but still, kinda cool. Of course, the one person I know well who would probably have appreciated it the most is my dad, and I had the strong impulse for a moment to call him and tell him about it. But it's a good way of remembering him, not a bad one. He'd have loved the teeny little puppy, too!
