    A Dinner Invitation

    A Dinner Invitation

    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-08-2003, 10:42 AM
    ((This is where I'll be posting Kulit's trial for me. I would now like to take this time to put out this momentary disclaimer. If your character is inaccurate, then more than likely you haven't updated your Bio in a while. ))

    The Victorian style dining room was quiet and dimly lit. The dinner table was round and centered in the middle of the room and able to fit twelve people comfortably. A door opens and out comes the house servants with dishes and silverware. Quietly, they prepared the table, meticulously placing everything in its place. Once completed, the servants exited out of the room as quickly as they arrived and all became still once again..until suddenly.


    three huge red dragons crash through the ceiling into the dining room making a mess of the place, with exception of the table. They are the Keeps Dragons, former protectors of Lord Mattsons Keep. They look around and start to snarl at each other seemingly drooling at the mouth.


    ((Where Giant Orange? Man at Vegas World say Giant Orange here but we no see him.))

    They start sniffing around the room for any sign of Giant Orange. A few minutes go by when the doors of the dining room open. The butler, or the man formerly known as Bob Barker, enters the room escorting a couple of individuals into the room. The first to enter is Scion the Nun, wife of BigGator. A fetching young lady that is without a House, she is dressed in her usual cowl, fishnets, a pair of long blue leather boots and a revealing blue leather top.

    ((What? A BUTLER?! Now listen here, whippersnapper! I been doing the Price Is Right since before you were an flea in Anubis's fur!! (And apparently stoking the lovely helpers...)))

    Next to enter through the doors was Celeste, formerly known as Hera, wife to Cid/Zeus, lover of Anubis, mother of Millenium, and very much dead. Adorn in a dull, drab gray robe with a hood she even looked like she belonged six feet under. She storms in the place like she owns it and takes a seat at the table without saying a word to anyone. The Keeps Dragons come up to her and start sniffing her.


    ((You smell like something that died.))

    Celeste ignores the beasts breathing on her. She tells herself that she is here for one reason alone and that is for the promise of power. She spies Scion the Nun sitting down four seats away from her and says...

    Ooooh good. You will be one of the first people to taste my wrath once I acquire this new power

    The next two people to be escorted in were unknown. They were dressed in outfits that seemed to be like they came from 100,000 years in the future. They too sat at the table without saying a word. Scion the Nun saw them and tried to strike up a conversation with them

    Scion: Hello, my name is Scion the Nun. Whats your names?

    Jett: I am Jett and this is Aurora. We are relatives of Sojourn Fan and Optimus Prime from Future Elysia.

    Scion: Hmmph. Never heard of you.

    Celeste: (To herself) Hmmm family to OP and SF? Ive just added two more people to the list of who I want destroyed once I get this new power.

    Next in was themachine, a mystery even to itself. It entered by burning through a wall on the Westside of the room. Still ablaze, it looked around at the individuals in the room. It wants to destroy them all, but instead holds back. It quiets the raging fires surrounding its body and decides to take a seat. The Keeps Dragons start sniffing him too..


    ((You glow like Giant Orange but you not him. Smell like bad cigars))

    Themachine shows no emotion at the dragons inquiries. It waits for the promise of power unimaginable

    Soon the ground starts to shake violently. Everyone in the room is caught off guard by the tremors, even the Keep's Dragons. With an ominous sound, a fiery pit opens up and swallows up one of the chairs at the table. A pillar of fire rages to the ceiling and back into the pit again. As it subsides, a throne made of bones and charred carcasses slowly emerges out of the pit. Such an introduction can only be the work of The Vampyre Lestat, the Minister of Darkness of Sinister's Council. Wearing his traditional black open-necked shirt with matching leather pants and a full-bodied cloak, he confidently sits upon his throne as if he is the shat. Carefully surveying the others in the room, he starts a tally in his head of who shall be the first to die in order for him to receive the prize. The others look upon him with fear and trembling in their hearts. Everybody except themachine, who has no feelings, and the Keep's Dragons who know no better. however, they do know enough not to sniff this newcomer out....

    Using the advanced equipment aboard the Nadesico 2, Captain Ruri teleports into the dining room. She is dressed in her new Captain's uniform. Taking a break from Juno's quest to reunite NoCal and Kulit, Ruri calmly sits in a chair and impatiently eyes her watch.

    Ruri: Where is that idiot? He's late. I have more important things to do than this.

    Scion: Ruri! How have you been?

    Ruri grumbles to herself and says under her breath "Great. Another idiot."
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-08-2003, 11:13 PM
    A few minutes go by and it seems like the natives are getting restless. Scion is trying to fight boredom by starting a conversation with Jett and Aurora. Jett and Aurora are trying their best to ignore Scion. Celeste can't seem to decide on who to impale first: Scion, Jett or Aurora. The Vampyre Lestat is flicking fireballs at themachine's head. Themachine just, well....sits there and takes it. And Ruri is trying her best not to get frightened by the fact that the Keep's Dragons are sniffing her hair.


    ((We smell Giant Orange on you. Tell us where he is. We want to see what he taste like.))


    Space and reality begin to shift in the center of the room. Another teleportal opens up. This time, Lord Mattson, Co-leader and Minister of Vision of Sinister emerges and sets down on the ground. He wears his trench coat with the Sinister emblem on the shoulders and silver bracers. Holding the Chimera Orb, he senses another's arrival...

    Descending through the gaping hole in the roof compliments of the Keep's Dragons, Minity the Minister of Culture and Social Events of Sinister floats down accompanied by two golden angels beside her. Truly a wonder to behold, she is wearing her golden armor over her black bikini. As she lands, she affectionately greets Lord Mattson, to which the vampire says...

    Lestat: Get a room you two.

    The butler, or the man formerly known as Bob Barker, walks in, closes the door and addresses them...

    Bob: Please take your seats around the table. I welcome you all to this place. You all were randomly picked to participate in this momentous occasion. This evening, our benefactor will give each of you the chance to acquire power beyond their wildest fantasies for one evening only. Now without further delay, I give you....the Benefactor........

    Using his "Out of Continuity" powers like he has done time and time again, Qwaring's Clone #1 enters the dining room from off panel with Baby Anubis AKA Jack in tow. He takes the remaining seat and places Jack in a stroller next to him. After making funny faces with Jack for a minute, he sits up and looks around the room at the attendees. When he notices the Keep's Dragons he nearly jumps out of his skin. He quickly motions for the Butler...

    QC1: Bob?

    Bob: Yes, Benefactor?

    QC1: Who invited the Eepskay Ragonsday?

    Bob: Sir, they invited themselves here. Something about wanting to, how did they say it, "taste you"?

    QC1: Why didn't you kick them out?

    Bob looks at QC1 with puzzled eyes. Then he looks at the Keep's Dragons sitting across the table with their hands folded and smacking their lips. He then looks back at QC1 and says...

    Bob: That wasn't in my job description, sir.

    With that, Bob hurries to the exit and closes the doors while snickering to himself
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-08-2003, 11:59 PM
    QC1 starts to get a little nervous. But then he thinks that his "Dumbluck" ability should get him out of any mess. Feeling a little reassured, he presses on...

    QC1: Hello everybody! It is I, the Great Benefactor. Today, you are all here because I am going to give each of you the opportunity of a lifetime.

    Jack starts to cry

    QC1: Aw, you want you baba? Here you go...

    While QC1 is distracted, the Keeps' Dragons decided to make their move.


    ((We want trade seats themachine.))

    themachine: Why?


    ((We want to taste Giant Orange))

    themachine: Oh. By all means then.

    They trade seats while QC1 wasn't looking. The dragons are now five seats away from QC1

    When QC1 finishes with Jack, he looks up and notices that the Keep's Dragons seem to have moved closer somehow. But he doesn't let on that he's worried and continues...

    QC1: So....here's the offer.

    A drumroll plays in the background

    QC1: Who here....would like to babysit Jack this Thursday night?

    The silence in the dining room was amazing. The variety of looks around the room ranged from confusement to unbridled wrath. Jaws dropped and faces contorted to what was asked.

    ((I'll post everyone's reaction tomorrow))
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 07:44 AM
    After what seemed to be an extraordinarily long period of silence,((Approximately eight hours after my last post ))someone finally speaks...

    Ruri: IDIOT! You mean to tell me that you invited us all here to see who wants to babysit Jack?

    QC1: Ummm.....yes.

    Lestat: WAIT! What happened to this promise of attaining ultimate power?!

    QC1: He's right here, HELLO! Jack is a being of immense power. Well, he used to be. But he will have that power again one day. And one of you lucky individuals get to babysit him for an evening. See? Ultimate power for a day!

    Lord Mattson: ::Sighs:: Why do you even need a babysitter?

    QC1: I'm glad you asked that Mattster. I'm taking Celeste over there out on a date Thursday night.

    Celeste: WHAT!!!
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 08:56 AM
    QC1: Yeah baby! I remember like it was yesterday. We were holding each other back there on Scion's moon. You loved me, I lusted for you. We are made for each other. And before I go out and spend ignorant amounts of money on our house in the Hamptons, I want to take you to Mickey D's for a happy meal.

    Celeste was beside herself. In a fit of rage she leaps out and starts choking QC1. When that happened, the Keep's Dragons saw another opportunity. To Jett and Aurora they said..


    ((We want to switch seats))

    Jett: Why? I'm quite comfortable where I am.


    ((Move or else ))

    Aurora: Ummmmm....I don't think that we should upset the dragons, dear. Let's just switch.


    ((Wise woman))

    They switched. The Keep's dragons are now three seats away from QC1

    While Celeste was trying to choke the life out of QC1, he took the gesture quiet differently...

    QC1: Hey! First things first! First we have the date, then you serve me milk and cookies in bed, then you annoy me, then we get married, then you annoy me some more, THEN we can get intimate. I'm an old fashion kinda guy. There's no need to rush right to the desert.

    He nerve pinches Celeste and then throws her off of him. He gets back up and dusts himself off and returns to the table and says...

    QC1: Where was I? Oh yeah, babysitting. So who here can take on this enormous responsibility?
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 10:07 AM
    ((Whoa. I just read what happened over at House Metallus. My apologies TVL if I'm using your character without permission...))
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 11:04 AM
    Lestat: Hold on. Celeste is dead. Yet you want to take her out on a date? I don't know if I should be repulsed or proud.

    QC1: So does that mean you will do it?

    Lestat: No. I don't do babysitting. But I'll tell you what I can do...

    TVL takes out the Dagger of Control and throws it at themachine. He then commands it to start choking QC1. Themachine gets up and does just that. While QC1 is trying to adjust to this new threat, the Keep's Dragon approach Celeste with an offer she couldn't refuse...


    ((Switch seats with us so we can eat Giant Orange))

    Celeste: Giant Orange? You mean him on the floor? Gladly!

    They switched seats. The dragons were now two seats away from their goal...
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 11:42 AM
    QC1 seemed to be having a bit more trouble trying to get themachine off of him. But through a lot of struggling, he managed to loosen the Dagger of Control through his "dumbluck" powers. With the dagger gone, themachine snaps back to reality. He looks at what he was doing, pauses for a second, then gets up and returns to it's seat. QC1 gets up, sits back down and starts again...

    QC1: Ok Lestat. I take it that your answer is no. Anyone else?

    Minity: Babysitting isn't my thing either. Besides, I have my hands full with the whole Blue Angel mess happening on the moon. Why don't you ask the skanky wench over there.

    Points to Scion. Scion tries to ignore Minity's comment.

    Scion: I don't think that I could help either. With everything going on at the moon, I just don't have the time. Minity has been acting like a inconsiderate tramp ever since the angels arrived.

    Minity: Your momma.

    Scion: OK! THAT'S IT! You want to settle this once and for all?!

    Minity: With pleasure!

    Without further delay, Scion shapes two sapphire swords and guards herself while Minity brings out her pair of long sais. They then stare menacingly at each other waiting for the other to make the first move

    QC1: Ooooh, a catfight . I'm taking bets! I've got 20 dollars on Minity.

    Ruri: Idiot. Can we please just get on with this?

    QC1: Oh alright! Always trying to interrupt a boy's wetdream. So how about it, Ruri?

    Ruri: No.

    QC1: Aw c'mon. Why not?

    Ruri: Because I've got to get back to the Nadesico 2 in order to help Juno get NoCal and Kulit back together. You know that already!

    QC1: Oh yeah. Well, can't you take Jack with you?

    Ruri: No.

    QC1: Please? I really want to take Celeste out.

    Celeste: For the last frickin time I AM NOT GOING OUT ON A DATE WITH YOU!

    QC1: You're just saying that because you want to keep what we've got going on a secret. That's fine with me, but sooner or later people are going to ask the inevitable question, "Who's that dead girl with George Cloney?".

    LM: Just how are you here anyway, Celeste? You died back on the moon.

    Celeste: I have no idea. Ask Millenium, he's writing this stupid story.

    LM: Oh.

    QC1: How about you two...whoever you are?

    Jett: Aurora and I are are OP's parents from Future Elysia.

    QC1: Cool. Never heard of you. So can you watch Jack?

    Aurora: With regrets we cannot watch him. As soon as this story is over, we have to return to SL Limbo.

    Jett: Our son is so mean not to use us.

    QC1: Gee, that's bad. Have a safe trip!

    Scion and Minity are still staring at each other waiting for the other to make the first move.

    QC1: LM? You're a stand up kinda guy. You'll help me, won't you?

    LM: No, I cannot help you. I am involved in a quest to find SilntAngl5 that I must not deter from. Staying here THIS long has already put me off of the trail. And with that said, I must take my leave...

    In a flash, LM teleports out of there. Lestat had left a while ago after retrieving the Dagger of control once again.

    QC1: Themachine, you look like you could use some baby time. See? Even Jack likes you, don't you Jack?

    Jack passes gas and smiles

    QC1: Eeeewww! See? You both even smell the same.

    Themachine: No.

    QC1: No what? No, you don't smell the same? Because I can assure you that you do.

    Themachine: No, I won't babysit. I would kill you right now, but I think I will leave that up to others...

    QC1: What did you say?

    Themachine: Nothing...

    Scion and Minity, still staring at each other, yadda, yadda, yadda....

    QC1: I guess that leaves just you Celeste. How do you feel about watching Jack on Thursday night?

    Celeste: Hold on! First, you want someone to watch this insignificant baby while you take me out on a date. NOW, you want me to watch it?! You are INCORRIGIBLE!

    QC1: Encourageable? Well, of course I am, but that's not what's important right now. What's really important is why won't you even look after your own ex-lover?

    Celeste: What are you talking about?

    QC1: For shame! You don't even recognize Anubis, Egyptian God of the Dead, destroyer of worlds, soiler of diapers, YOUR old flame? You really are a piece of work lady.

    Celeste: It cannot be! Anubis, what have they done to you?!

    QC1: Oh, that's right! You kicked the bucket before Anubis turned into a Toys R Us kid. Well, after your untimely demise, Anubis was defeated by the Titans and was reduced to a baby.

    Celeste: Can...I hold him?

    QC1: Ummm, no. You're not worthy. you didn't want anything to do with him before, then don't want anything to do with him now.

    Celeste: Why you little!!

    Celeste starts stalking QC1, while he backs up slowly. Not knowing that he has slowly backed into the Keep's Dragons...

    QC1 slowly turns around and realizes who he just bumped into.


    ((We patient long enough. Now supper time.))

    QC1: You don't really want to eat me, do you dragons?


    ((Giant Orange silly. We wait long time for this.))

    Seeing that he was surrounded by the Keep's Dragons, Celeste, and themachine, QC1 looked around to see if there was anyone left that could help him. Scion and Minity were STILL staring angrily at each other, waiting for the other to make their first move. LM and Lestat had left. Ruri was nowhere to be found. And Aurora and Jett just sat there sadly awaiting for this SL to be over with. QC1 closed his eyes and hoped that his "dumbluck" would help out of this jam....
    Posted by Millenium (Member #1728 ) on 09-09-2003, 01:50 PM
    The Keep's Dragons tries to swat QC1. When QC1 tried to back up, he tripped and landed on the floor. The dragon's giant hands missed QC1 and instead pimpsmacked Celeste clear across the room. Themachine looked on and decided to throw fire at the dragons.


    ((We no like metalman. We eat you first))

    The dragons start breathing fire at themachine. They both matched each other's fire blasts. They were in a stand-off to see who would weaken first. This gave QC1 enough time to pick up Jack and start to exit. Before he left, he looked back at what was going on and says...

    QC1: Well, Jack. I guess no one here wants to watch you. We'll just have to see if LAW and Wandering Willow can look after you again. Ready to go?

    Jack: Hee hee.

    QC1: Let's go then.

    QC1: Uses his "Out of Continuity" powers again in order to walk off panel to whereabouts unknown....

    ((Man, that took forever. Hopefully that does it for you Kulit.))
