Your name is CLUBS DEUCE. For some reason you are holding what appears to be an electronic drawing tablet. Images of strange, bewildering adventures flash through your head as your hand itches mysteriously to draw things.
You try to control the flurry of images flashing through your head long enough to settle down on a chronologically correct course of action to describe.
It all started with Tavros Nitram.
Tavros was introduced and then immediately ordered to drink Faygo with his friend Gamzee Makara. But because Gamzee lived so far away, Tavros was forced to figure out some way in which he could get to his best buddie's respiteblock. Remembering that he possessed a rocket chair, Tavros flew to Gamzee's respiteblock. He was promptly dumped to the ground as the rocket chair careened across the Capricorn's lawn in Tavros' excitement (and lack of attentiveness).
Tavros knocked politely on Gamzee's door, to the other's disapproval. He was pretty badly hungover from some sopor slime he'd consumed earlier. Gamzee crawled out of his recuperacoon and walked to the door, completely forgetting that he was utterly stark naked.
Tavros beheld his glorious, alien junk and was speechless.
And then as Gamzee moved in closer for a hug, the boy began to flip out a little. Gamzee couldn't resist touching Tavros' silky smooth hair and an incredibly awkward moment ensued.
Unknown to the two standing in Gamzee's doorway, Vriska Serket was watching from the bushes, spying on Tavros. She was curiously meddling, wondering what could get the formerly cripple boy so excited. She tailed him, then hid in the bushes. At this moment, she leapt from the bushes, twigs and leaves in her hair, laughing uproariously in a vicious manner.
In his embarrassment, Tavros guided Gamzee back into the hive and away from the spider-witch's grasp. Luckily, she was too busy choking on air in her laughter to notice them slip away. When she noticed they were gone, she began to hatch another plan, twirling a mustache that grew conveniently right at that moment pretty sinisterly.
Back in the hive, Tavros watched with embarrassment as Gamzee finally remembered to put some damn pants on. Tavros then, for the first time, noticed that Gamzee wasn't wearing his usual, weird clown paint. Tavros proceeded to fondle Gamzee's face, to Gamzee's slight disconcertion. To neutralize the moment, Gamzee then licked Tavros straight across the cheek.
However, the moment was ruined as Gamzee stepped on a horn, scaring the shit out of both of them. This resulted in him falling over and onto several more horns which honked pretty loudly and scared them worse.
Right after this, Vriska appeared in the doorway to inform the two struggling trolls that the hive's door was unlocked and that someone had smashed through the front window to take pictures of Gamzee licking Tavros' face.
The two trolls absconded under a table at the sight of Vriska, the feared spider-witch. They took no notice of her sensible words to bring attention to slightly more disconcerting things. As they trembled under the table, they noticed Eridan Amopora who was glaring pretty angrily at them. This was mystifying in every way.
For some reason, Gamzee believed this to be the perfect time to begin painting Tavros' face, and did so as Eridan threw extremely uncomfortable glares in Tavros' direction. While this took place, Vriska absconded from the hive with Gamzee's beloved recuperacoon, removing his only source of sopor slime.
Oblivious to this, Gamzee reached over and jacked Eridan's glasses without warning, flipping out at the way they distorted everything. Eridan promptly began to panic as Gamzee decided that he desperately needed his face painted as well. Eridan complied, if only in his newfound helplessness.
Gamzee then crawled out from under the table to get an assessment on the Vriska situation. He noticed immediately that his recuprecoon was nowhere to be seen and flipped out royally, dumping his only sopor slime pie on Eridan's face and knocking the Aquarius' glasses from his own face in the process. Vriska used the stolen recuperacoon to set up a legitimate small business Sopornade stand outside of Gamzee's respiteblock. This was an amazing scheme.
In his distress, Gamzee licked the sopor slime from Eridan's face in a panic. Tavros sensed the distress and rose under the table to help his comrades. Unfortunately, he clocked himself in the head and decided to lay on the ground and recover instead.
Nepeta Leijon then appeared at Vriska's Sopornade stand. She had been wandering about in the wilderness outside of Gamzee's respiteblock when she spotted the business. Her feline curiosity left her unable to leave the stand without some of the mysterious sopornade. Unfortunately, Vriska was charging exorbitant prices for the liquid.
This appears to be the moment that you, Clubs Deuce, come into play. You ponder this for a few moments, but it's silly and you don't want to dwell on it.
Gamzee is now standing outside of his respiteblock, thanking dieties of all natures for the sudden new supply of sopor slime.
Until Thanksgiving break (around the 20-21st). Until then, feel free to leave commands. I will probably update in blocks of 3-4 images, like I have been.
(I kind of want to try animating a little more, too.)
> Gamzee: ThErE bE uNiNvItEd GuEsTs Up In ThIs BiTcH. fLiP tHe FuCk oUt AnD sHoO tHeY'rE bItCh AsSeS oFf YoUr LaWn, Yo.
Get the hell out of here, you freeloading wenches! You swear to the mirthful minstrels!!!
Okay!! Obviously I broke hiatus early. All of my homework is done and I'm going home tomorrow!
I was going to do ONE MORE COMMAND before posting, but I need to get down to the cafe so I can watch Inception so SEE YA LATER.
> Eridan: WHY ISN'T ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEEEE?
You promptly put on your biggest asshole pouty face once you're out of the spotlight. Not that you'd be able to tell anyway since you're pretty much blind without your glasses. But that's beside the fuckin point.
> Eridan: Start to feel the effects of the sopor slime toxins seeping through your face skin.
Okay, suddenly pouting doesn't seem so important. You feel... kind of relaxed. So chill. Everything's okay. Land-dwellers are okay. Actually, land-dwellers are awesome. You fuckin lovve land-dwwellers.
> Vriska: Go inside.
While everyone else is getting hopped up on sopor slime (and while one little wiggler lies under a table passed out like a ST8PID LITTLE GRUB WHO POOPS IN HIS P8NTS), you slip into Gamzee's hive.
actually the sleeve bit didn't even occur to me, I was just trying to introduce a silly reason for vriska to look like she does by the end of hivebent (with her arm and vision eightfold back) since tavros has his robo-legs in this
Ohhh, haha. :B
I thought you were doing the thing where someone will say "glue on your horns, how did they manage to fall off" if, for example, someone forgets to draw horns.
I actually just prefer Vriska's roboarm, I think it's neat. This isn't set any kind of timeline that makes sense, haha.
Welp, adventure friends. I am going to just officially end this. Without an update.
Not enough readers, not enough updates and not enough story.
However, when the time comes, I'll start a new fan adventure that has some plot, etc. Until then, my apologies.
>Not enough readers, not enough updates and not enough story.
I think there are plenty of readers for this! It's just that when the author of an adventure goes silent, the fans do too. As for updates and plot, I hope you get your work and work schedule to be manageable and maybe then you'll have time to relax with fun stuff like this. :O
No one means any disrespect to Katie or to cause her any stress. She said that there aren't enough readers for this adventure, and, imho, this 'mourning' is just people showing that the adventure will be missed (ie the viewership is large). It's not meant as an act of aggression, but as one of support. No one's being ungrateful or saying 'no no you must continue', we're just letting her know that her previous efforts weren't for naught and that future efforts will be welcomed likewise.
Yes. Nobody really means any pressure or ungratefulness, it's just that people want to show that they're sad it's going away, and trying to reassure the author that there were a lot of fans after all. These Katie adventure threads were talked about a lot in the various places I went to, certainly more than other adventure threads. It's just that when a thread goes long enough without updating people tend to leave it alone so as not to annoy the author with a billion suggestions being there when they return.
Your comment in the feelings thread makes me feel the worst about ending this. :c
I'm really glad you guys are so enthusiastic about it, and that you enjoyed everything! But hey, I figure it's time I moved on and did my own stuff. I'll do another adventure at some point, but I'm working on all these ISSUES and EMOTIONS and bluh with original work. These things are fun and a great way to kill time, though.
I'M SORRY FOR LEAVING YOU, /ADV/.
I'll miss you too.
