WHAT EVER
WHERE School(s)! probably.
WHEN Day 50

[Today, Quite Mounds Schools for the Gifted is having its... once every so often-ish... SCIENCE Fair! You know this, because there are posters pinned up all over town. And by "posters" we mean, someone drew a beaker, badly, with a black marker, wrote the relevant details underneath it, and then photocopied it on green paper a hundred times. Come check it out. What, did you have something better to do today?

Participation is only mandatory for grades seven and below, but students in the higher grades or college courses have been encouraged to do projects as well. Do you have a table? Maybe! What's your project?

Up at the school, for the afternoon, the gymnasium is open to the public and is full of lemon-batteries, baking soda/vinegar volcanoes, and... some other more unique projects... although it seems that the head of the SCIENCE Department (yes it's always in all caps. no we don't know why.) has managed to put a stop to anything too super-villainous.

The Fair takes place in the afternoon, though, so maybe you're in your normally scheduled morning classes. Maybe you're loitering in the hallways. Maybe you're playing poker for M&Ms in one of the empty classrooms on your lunch break. Maybe you're smoking behind the bike shed. Maybe you're at track practice!

Maybe you're not at the school at all and you're using this as a mingle post. That's fine too.]

WHAT in person
WHERE at the mall
WHEN sometime around day 49

[ If you can find it in the fog, there is now a cute little bar wrapped around one corner of the mall, with a sign labeling it the Singing Goat. Inside the bar is a lot of kitschy pseudo-Greek shit and a bunch of posters for slightly off-brand Broadway musicals (Katz appears to have been a collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Weber and Mel Brooks).

Hanging out behind the counter is a young man in jeans and a t-shirt, rubbing down the bar with a cloth in his hand and a thoughtful look in his eyes. If you look at him out of the corner of your eye you can see he has golden bull-horns on his head, but otherwise he looks perfectly normal.

The place looks not quite finished. There's a karaoke machine in one corner, but it isn't hooked up, and the bartender fiddles with the taps while muttering in irritation to himself in some arcane language. (It's ancient Greek. More or less.)

After a while, he reluctantly gets out from behind the bar and starts putting up a HELP WANTED sign in the window. ]

WHERE anywhere
WHEN Day 49

[ This morning a fog has descended on the town, the kind of fog that makes it hard to see more than 20 feet in front of you and makes everything look foreign.

...In fact, it seems to make things look especially foreign, somehow. You might find yourself walking the few blocks from your apartment to school that you've done a hundred times and staring at an intersection that you feel like you've never seen before, or seeing the chapel peek out of the mist when you swear you were on the way to the mall.

Or maybe you're just drinking some coffee and taking pictures of the spooky weather with your phone from inside. ]

WHERE everywhere
WHEN Day 48

[ Fall is coming. And how do you know it's fall? There's P U M P K I N S P I C E everywhere. Do you need pumpkin spice clothes? The mall is selling them. Did you want coupons for the FULL PUMPKIN SPICE EXPERIENCE (what does this even mean ) in your email? Cool. You can't escape the pumpkin spice.

Bright orange pumpkin spice themed shoes. Scented stationary. So forth and so on. Anyway, how are you? ]

WHEN Day 47

[allergies are clear and so are the aphro effects! maybe. unless you decided to bottle some of those spores up or something, who knows. you do you, friend. either way, it seems to be a lovely breezy day out with the sun shining and whatnot.

you're probably going about doing your thing. whatcha up to?]

WHAT in person
WHERE outside
WHEN 46th
NOTES nsfw, probs

[if you've been having trouble with allergies recently, it seems like today might be a blessed respite. which is kind of strange, considering the massive amount of visible spores floating along on the gentle breeze, bright yellow and ranging in size from minuscule to about as large as a tennis balls. how is something like that even staying afloat ... ? thankfully, if you do get hit by one (or more), there are no side effects of runny nose or itchy throat.

instead, you might just find yourself feeling particularly amorous. or horny. or murder horny? it's sex pollen, do what you want!]

[or maybe it doesn't do anything to you and you're just going about your day, that's cool too. walk safely around the impenetrable sex barrier!]

WHERE TIDY LIVING APTS LAUNDRY ROOM
WHEN DAY 45

[Did you know your clothes are dirty?

It doesn't' even really matter if you washed them literally last night, somehow, every piece of clothing you own smells, you fucking scrub.

Which means it's time to do laundry!

Fortunately, there's a place to do laundry right down stairs! And there are just enough washing machines that if you wait a few minutes probably you can get your stuff in, especially if you actually have quarters on you. If not I guess time to bum some off someone else.

The question is, are you enough of a scrub to just hang out in your underwear or do you deign to wear one set of slightly rank clothes so that you can change into something clean as soon as they get out.]


[alternatively, you don't give a fuck and are about doing something else man idk your life]

[the hip goth store Spicy Discourse is still hiring (come see Reaper if interested), but in the back breakroom, there are a bunch of cupcakes and fruit bowls for ~EMPLOYEE MEET & GREET.~ so if you are one of the edgelords or nerdlords that Reaper hired, come say hi to each other. You may be COMPELLED to do so.

Other than that, it's cloudy and drizzly today, with a lot of rolling thunder. The Thing in the lake is swimming around, and the item flashers are having a 10% off sale. Mingle away!]

OKAY.
SOMEHOW YOU ASSHOLES ARE GIVING ME A MIGRAINE FROM MY SAFE HAVEN OF THIS SOULLESS AND BLINDINGLY BRIGHT COMPLIMENTARY RESPITEBLOCK.
PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU ARE DOING OR THINKING STUPID THINGS ABOUT YOUR RESPECTIVE CONCILIATORY OR CONCUPISCENT INTERESTS.
DON'T THINK I DIDN'T SEE THAT REVOLTING ATTEMPT AT UNNECESSARY AUSPISTICING FOR WHAT IS OBVIOUSLY A RESPECTABLY CONTENTIOUS LONG-RUNNING BLACKROM, EARLIER.
IT DOESN'T TAKE A PROFESSIONAL TO REALIZE THERE IS NOTHING FOR YOUR CAFFEINE CORRODED SPONGES TO DO HERE OTHER THAN FIGURE OUT HOW EXACTLY TO ROMANTICALLY FUCK BOTH EACH OTHER AND YOURSELVES WITH THE SAME SOCIALLY UNACCEPTABLE APPENDAGE.
BUT SINCE I AM BASICALLY A PROFESSIONAL.
AND ALSO PRETTY BORED.
YOU CAN LINE UP AND TELL ME ABOUT WHAT THE FUCK EVER STUPID THING YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT WHOEVER IS CURRENTLY INCURRING YOUR PITY OR HATE.
FOR YOU HUMANS THAT MEANS WHO DO YOU WANT TO LOVEFUCK OR HATEFUCK.
AND I WILL OFFER A DISINTERESTED AND COOL HEADED OUTSIDER'S OPINION ON HOW BADLY YOU ARE FUCKING UP.
YOU CAN BE ANONYMOUS IF THAT IS ALL YOU'VE GOT THE SHAMEGLOBES FOR, I DON'T ACTUALLY CARE.
OH.
AND THIS IS ALL STRICTLY PLATONIC.
I AM NOT AUSPITICING FOR ANYONE.
AND IF A SINGLE ONE OF YOU NOOKSTAINS HITS ON ME I SWEAR TO EVERY TENTACLED MOTHERFUCKER IN PARADOX SPACE I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND RIP YOUR BIZARRE ALIEN ENTRAILS OUT OF WHATEVER QUALIFIES FOR YOUR BIZARRE ALIEN SHITHOLE, UNDERSTOOD?

WHAT in person
WHERE The mall!
WHEN Day 42

[You have TWO OPTIONS:

[1]

[Earlier in the day, a short fellow in an excellent hat stops by literally every store in the mall basically just to chat up the staff and poke around. Do you own or work at a mall store? Chuuya is here to say hi to you.

Feel free to run into him anywhere, or just do a 'You're at the home depot' top level and I'll start the thread for you!]


[2]

[In the afternoon, you may find that same guy wandering the mall again. This time with a Very Nice Leather Satchel, which he is cheerfully filling with money from the cash registers of any stores manned by NPCs. The NPCs seem to be in various stages of Non Fatal Injury, ranging from unharmed to with a few obviously broken bones, and also lying flat on the ground unable to move and barely able to breathe.

Whatever! Who cares about NPCs, money is great.]

WHERE near your favorite cafe
WHEN Day 41

[ So, there's been a woman sleeping on a cafe table, curled up like a cat. She yawns, and stretches, and looks around. ]

Bored.


[ And then she starts singing. You know, the way a black hole starts gently tugging. It's the most ass-kicking powerful jam you have ever god damn heard. She's singing in a language of pure power and she's singing about limitless pleasure. She is not only a woman now but golden lioness, big as a horse and shining like the sun and beautiful beyond human fathoming.

If you are within earshot, you may experience several or all of the following:

-Hallucinating a whole bunch of awesome spectral cats
-Overwhelming rage-tinged euphoria
-Mind-melding with the all-loving, all-destroying sun
-Hulking out *
-Jizzing in your pants
-Nose bleeds
-Passing the fuck out
-Needing a god damn drink ]

[ Or, alternately, you just saw a grown woman just stand up and shout "meow" over and over in a vaguely song-like way for about three and a half minutes and everyone around you seems to be losing their shit for literally no reason whatsoever. ]

WHAT Do You Like to Drift?
WHERE Anywhere
WHEN Day 41

[ Today, you might wake up feeling particularly epic. Somehow, it just seems like a day meant to conquer monsters.

Unfortunately, you find that almost everything you need to do that requires . . . well any amount of effort -- the laundry machines, opening doors, doing your job at the coffeeshop, fishing, you know, basically all activities. . . seems to be impossible. Every door has two handles, for some reason the laundry machines also have two handles. Any workspace you occupy has two sets of footprints, clearly meant for you to step on.

And you know. You just know looking at the handles / footprints / other coop signs that you need someone else to help you. That you and someone else must be in perfect synch to pull that goddamn door open.

You also know that 'in synch' can mean that your emotions may bleed, you may experience each others memories. Yes, you need to drift to do your fucking laundry or open a door. You're Welcome.

Remember, don't chase the rabbit. ]

WHERE Spicy Discourse
WHEN day 40
NOTES

[Quiet Mounds' own Hot Topic, Spicy Discourse, has had black drapes over it for the past few days with a sign up: CLOSED FOR OVERHAUL.

It is open again! It looks... kinda dope, actually. Smoke effects and colored lights, lots of black and red and purple and pink, lots of ripped and skin-tight and leather-embroidered. And of course, Linkin Park is blasting.

Hey, time doesn't exist, so why aren't you living your truth and dressing as dramatically as possible? Maybe you should get over yourself and admit the studded pre-ripped jeans and old-fashioned faded golden-age Captain America crop-top look amazing on you. Honestly the quality of all the products is way up?? VERY Spicy Discourse style, of course, but even if full-blown goth isn't your style, there's always statement pieces or fun accessories. NPCs are manning sales. In the back with the band T-Shirts is a mysterious man in an owl skull mask, black jeans, and a black hoodie, reading a futuristic glowing slate & somehow eating donuts and coffee.

There's a sign up that says NOW HIRING.]

(optional) NOTES

[The sun doesn't so much as rise as flick on with the sudden, glaring brightness of noon. Whatever time keeping device you have on you says its about 8:14am when this happens.

The power's back, but the time on your timekeeping device never really make sense with the position of the sun as it moves across the sky.]

WHEN day??? 38

[The power is out! Shit.

Except the elevator seems to work, tho perhaps it does not work WELL, as if only kind of needs power to operate effectively.

Power outages are of course a great time to go look at the stars, except-- those also? appear to be out?

Hm.

Things also feel A Bit Eerie. The night is kind of chilly. You might catch a smudge of white in corner of your eye, or hear someone tapping on your window. If you're outside, it's so pitch black it would be easy to run into someone.

A flashlight would be great right now but let's face it you chumps probably just have your cellphones operating at 12% battery.]

[ QM people keep QM-ing!

If you need/want a prompt:
It's Friday, I'm in love! Or lust maybe? Whatever you're feeling, you might hear some appropriate (or inappropriate) mood music through the day: a victory fanfare when you find a penny on the sidewalk, sexy slow jams while you check yourself out in a mirror.

Or not. You do you guys! ]
