The back alley of "The Red Pineapple" is a typical city alley, flanked by two buildings, one of which is the infamous strip club. Near the entrance to the alley are several trash cans, a few with their contents spilled onto the sidewalk. This was Vlad's favorite strip club at some point, and some of the wilder people in the mansion know about it all too well. Further in one can see a grate from which hot steam emanates onto the surface, fogging up the front of the back door of the bar. There is little need for security in the back alley, since there are no windows and the door is rather sturdy. To go into the club without having to show an ID or pay an entrance fee, one would have to learn how to walk through walls.

2010-08-05 [Veltzeh]: I'm trying to come up with an excuse why Kaider would stay there, but I'm not coming up with anything. :/

2010-08-05 [Duredhel]: Then have it leave :3

2010-08-05 [Veltzeh]: I hope that doesn't screw any plots.

2010-08-05 [Duredhel]: Kaider leaving doesn't. Michael leaving screws up half the plots in plotage page tho XD. Kel, you should've said Michael was not going to go to the bar in the plottage page before we plotted anything :/ this is not gonna fly. Gotta see what Figgs will do...

2010-08-05 [Veltzeh]: Well, I suppose it screws MY plot then?


2010-08-05 [Figgy]: You know, go ahead and have fun at your merry little mall. I will fix this.

2010-08-05 [Duredhel]: Kaided didn't really have a plot for which the bar was integral. But we had plots going on, particularly in regards to introducing Mihir and maybe Squid, which are not totalled. I guess i'll just post the fact Kel bailed all of the sudden in the plottage page and we'll figure out something else for Mihir.

2010-08-05 [Veltzeh]: Well, Mihir could come to the mall maybe? Divide the action. XD

2010-08-05 [Flisky]: I've got an idea about that...

2010-08-06 [Priest Kel]: Nothing about my post solidifies Michael leaving, he just admits that it's not his thing. Someone could try and goad him into it, which I would expect Shade to do to be honest

2010-08-06 [Figgy]: Fixeded!

2010-08-06 [Figgy]: Thanks, Kel. :)

2010-08-06 [Priest Kel]: I honestly had no intention of not following through on the plot

2010-08-06 [Figgy]: Alright, it's all good now. Just a misunderstanding. Everything is fixeded now. :D

2010-08-06 [Priest Kel]: Cool

2010-08-06 [Veltzeh]: Well now Kaider is in a corner ey feels extremely uncomfotable in and I wonder what would stop Kaider from telling exactly what's going on to Xavier. Also Shade's attitude makes Kaider just want to leave, unless ey can hurt him back.

2010-08-06 [Duredhel]: Xavier would probably tell it to "grow a pair", delighting in the ironic nature of the comment. Seriously >_> if Kaider wants to leave, it should leave.

2010-08-06 [Veltzeh]: In that case Kaider would just make everyone go to the mall. :P

2010-08-06 [Veltzeh]: Seriously, does Shade have to try to drive Kaider away? Couldn't he try to say something that might make em want to cooperate?

2010-08-06 [Lepellier]: Hey Dur, you wanna take Aidan on assistant-GM cruise control for a few days? Thank you. :)

2010-08-06 [Figgy]: Would that really fit Shade's personality, though? I'll have Logan try to get it to go in, but Shade, I doubt, will try.

2010-08-06 [Veltzeh]: Well, it would fit Shade's personality to get people to do what he wants them to.

2010-08-07 [Duredhel]: Well he did, in his own way, by goading and insulting. Usually works too, either that or people whine, bitch and then leave. Either way, Shade wins :D

And sure Lep

2010-08-07 [Veltzeh]: Okay, well, the only way Kaider would come along is if ey gets to hurt Shade. Mind telling me how to do that? :P

2010-08-07 [Duredhel]: Oh wow XD Really can't stand your characters looking bad/losing in any situation can you? Almost pathologically so... Uhhhm.. well its hard to say. Shade is pretty proud, so the best way would be to humiliate him, but for Kaider it would be hard to do cuz it takes EVERYTHING so damn seriously, whereas Shade doesn't.

2010-08-07 [Veltzeh]: Sure I can, but not when it tries to happen almost all the freaking time! I could say the same thing about you.
And how to humiliate him? :P

2010-08-07 [Duredhel]: Hahah XD, that's called denial, veltz, my characters get their butts kicked half the time (Shade had to go to the infirmary because of White and had to use an umbrella to go to the pool party >__>... Light also got him good, tho its was kind of private...). In any case its important to differentiate between the character's personality and ego and your own.

As for humiliating Shade... I know a perfect way to humiliate him and i'll tell you if you stop the dillydallying and just help get the plot going, don't want to spend a whole week sitting in the back alley waiting for Kaider to stop weeping. Took me a whole 4 seconds to think it up, just turn on the car lights as Shade is about to cross his own portal, he'll crash into the wall.

2010-08-08 [Veltzeh]: I disagree, or should I say deny? :P But either way, I think the difference is that you controlled those situations: you knew what was going to happen or had very simple choices and could expect it and react to them. For me it's just gone "wrong", I have no idea why and it's just damned frustrating. Or it could be as simple as us just thinking completely differently about this stuff.
Also, the attitude you seem to have towards me playing Kaider according to eir personality (how I see it, I don't know what you see) and the way you belittle em even in the comments inspires just more conflict. Instead of telling me exactly what to fix and why, you just say I play "wrong" and react to my "wrong" posts, which doesn't help at all. What I suspect would be pretty helpful is if you suggested how to play Kaider according to YOUR theories and explain how it would work and what the thought process would be, because I just don't understand. But I guess that would be a lot of work...

2010-08-08 [Duredhel]: Ok... 6 years of trying is long enough >o<

Really not trying to antagonize you mate, but we've had this discussion many times before. Regarding the "control" I had on these situations, I was as subject to what the other people did with their characters and the GM as you are now. I guess the main difference is that I didn't mind the fact I didnt know exactly what was gonna happen and wouldn't let it keep me from enjoying the game. I guess the only thing I can say is really this; Its better to be flexible than to be right.

Let's just stop dwelling on this and move along with the RP.

2010-08-08 [Veltzeh]: It'll just keep coming up again and again if we don't solve this issue, you know. -_-

2010-08-09 [Duredhel]: :3 *pets*

2010-08-09 [The Past]: Does Zane realise it's actually Flame? O.o since shes all image inducey

2010-08-09 [Araglas]: I should fix that, lol I didn't read that

2010-08-09 [The Past]: It ok :B I confoose by making her be covered hehe

2010-08-09 [Veltzeh]: Okay, if I could just suggest for something that Xavier could say to Kaider... like that he was surprised and definitely didn't recommend that they go to a strip club, but if most of the others really wanted to go there, it would be all right, and that they should leave if anyone got too uncomfortable. (Kaider won't.) Would that be okay?

2010-08-09 [Duredhel]: I think Figgs already had something along those lines in mind :3

2010-08-26 [Roma]: LOL - its Vlad's favorite spot. Love it.

2010-08-31 [The Past]: Roma! You back for good now?! :D

2010-08-31 [Roma]: Well I've got a reliable way into town - legs and trash bags to keep my stuff dry when I swim the Rio. I can get into town twice a week probably so Figgs said it was ok if I brought them back! I hope Flame has been behaving herself...Vlad likes her lots.

2010-09-01 [The Past]: Coolies :D even if you have to hike to get the net hehe.

And we will see with what happens inside the bar first to see if she has/will be XD

2010-09-03 [Roma]: damn, gotta scoot. it's been nice!

2010-09-03 [Ms. Steel]: Until next time! :-D

2010-09-04 [Roma]: Tis really up to you and the research you've done whether or not the stuff is going to start eating away Vlad's clothes, [Ms. Steel] dear

2010-09-05 [Ms. Steel]: Honestly, it'll probably irritate/rash-up his skin more than anything at the moment. It's not a strong concentration. Vlad might notice some holeage after removing or washing the pants later, though. :-)

2010-09-05 [Ms. Steel]: I should probably put this out there as general information: Kyle doesn't always smell, and the odor produced by the acid is fairly fleeting, at least in an outdoor setting like this, because it does evaporate quickly. That's why it can be so dangerous as an eye and throat irritant. :-)

2010-09-06 [Priest Kel]: Ah, ok then. I shall change my post

2010-09-06 [Ms. Steel]: Oh, you didn't have to do that. It probably smells pretty garbage-stanky back there! ;-)

2010-09-06 [The Past]: Heh ^_^;; I really need to wait for Michael to be there to post.

2010-09-06 [Priest Kel]: My apologies actually. I had forgotten that he was supposed to be in the alley way

2010-09-06 [Figgy]: Guys! Let's wrap this up and get everyone moving. I'mma have Logan usher them all to their transportation back to the mansion so we can get going! Everyone can continue their conversations at the mansion. Really don't want to take a week to do this, so post ASAP please!

2010-09-07 [Figgy]: I know that not everyone has gotten in the car yet, but I'm going to have Logan leave now. I don't want to wait any longer. >.>

2010-09-07 [Araglas]: What about Kyle? Should Alexis make him all not paranoid and have him come with them to the mansion?

2010-09-07 [Figgy]: Dude, Kyle ran off. :/

2010-09-07 [Araglas]: ?? I thught it said he ran further down the alley...hmm I guess I misread, my apologies! @_@ its late hehe

2010-09-07 [Figgy]: Well, it seems as though he ran away. I don't know Ixel's intentions, but if she wants him at the mansion, I'm sure she'll find a way to get him there.

2010-09-07 [Araglas]: okidokey! ^_^ I has to win the contesat, lol I would love some art of my characters! ^^ POST POST POST POST POST POST POST POST POOST!!!!

2010-09-07 [Duredhel]: Remember not to leave your chars in limbo guys.

2010-09-07 [Figgy]: Yeah, I have some Native American in me. I'mma smackahoe. >:/

2010-09-07 [Ms. Steel]: Kyle will reappear, mostly likely on or near school property, in the near future. :-)

2010-09-07 [Roma]: I'm just gonna say Vlad got into the van after Kyle ran off.

2010-09-07 [Figgy]: Yes, ma'am.... s.

2011-04-14 [Ms. Steel]: Do you want Kyle here now, or should I wait until the goils are present?

2011-04-14 [Figgy]: WAAIIIITTT O.O

2011-04-14 [Ms. Steel]: OKAAAAAAY.

2011-04-14 [Figgy]: I'll be sure to kick Dur in the 'nads when he gets back so that he'll post, mkay. >.>

2011-04-14 [Ms. Steel]: Groin assault seems a little like overkill.

2011-04-14 [Figgy]: He can handle it.

2011-04-14 [Duredhel]: What's with you and my nads, tiff? >__<

2011-04-14 [Figgy]: Dude, you're the one who told me that they taste like candy.

You know how much I like candy.

2011-04-14 [Duredhel]: I never told you what they tasted like >,< you figured that out all on your own.

2011-04-15 [Figgy]: Alright, you win this time JD -_- But I'll get you back. I have two rows of omnivorous teeth and your junk is pretty sensitive >:3

Oh, Ixie, when do you plan on having Kyle pop up, exactly? I had Shana buy him a milkshake, too, to entice him XD

2011-04-15 [Ms. Steel]: I can have in come in now, or whenever you'd like.

2011-04-15 [Figgy]: It's whenever you want. :3

2011-04-15 [Roma]: Ahahahaha

2011-04-17 [Duredhel]: Whose turn is it? :O

2011-04-17 [Roma]: This mission has followed a pleasant flow of Vlad, Daniela, Valerie, Shana.

I think that makes it [Ms. Steel]'s.

2011-04-18 [Ms. Steel]: I was gone all weekend and will post later today. :-)

2011-04-18 [Figgy]: :D

2011-04-19 [Figgy]: Whose turn is it now? :O

2011-04-19 [Roma]: Mine. Tomorrow xD

2011-04-19 [Figgy]: >:(

2011-04-19 [Roma]: Trust me, after the 5 beers, you wouldn't have wanted me to post.

2011-04-19 [Ms. Steel]: Maybe it would have been an AWEsome post. heh heh heh.

2011-04-19 [Roma]: Haha, well you might have been in awe... but not at my greatness.

2011-04-20 [Figgy]: Whose turn? T_T

2011-04-20 [Roma]: Vlad, Kyle, Daniela, Valerie, Shana. We're on Valerie.

2011-04-21 [Duredhel]: Whose turn was it again? :O

2011-04-21 [Roma]: -brain explode-

2011-04-21 [Duredhel]: XD I was being an ass.

2011-04-21 [Roma]: ;) I caught that. Still made my brain 'splode

2011-04-23 [Duredhel]: .... last post makes no sense whatsoever >,<. Three people are sort of.. walking towards Kyle and Dani called out to him and tried to form a shield around his finger.

2011-04-23 [Ms. Steel]: That is an egregious error. I will fix it. My apologies.

2011-04-26 [Duredhel]: Whose turn is it? :O

2011-04-27 [Figgy]: :O


2011-04-27 [Roma]: Ahhh, it is my turn. It so is. And I will turn it up. Right now.

2011-04-27 [Figgy]: Yay :3

2011-04-27 [Ms. Steel]: As of this afternoon, I'm going to be offline for ten days. If this scene hasn't played all the way through (though it seems to be finished for the most part...?), you can do whatever is deemed necessary to Kyle and Val to finish things.

2011-04-27 [Duredhel]: Uhhhm.. Since Ixie is all gone & stuff. What do you guys say if we do just one big GM post to get Kyle to the mansion and get Halloween started by tomorrow?

2011-04-27 [Roma]: In favor

2011-04-28 [Figgy]: Hope that GM post is ok. Let me know if there should be changes. :3

2011-04-28 [Roma]: I think Vlad might have a rash or some kind of skin irritation for a while. Nothing that would still bother him by Halloween, but he came into direct contact so he's probably itchy and has ruined some clothes.

2011-04-28 [Roma]: Fast like a cheetah on that one XD

2011-04-28 [Figgy]: ;3

I'm in Spanish lab and have nothing else to do since I finished my work :/

2011-04-28 [Roma]: Muy bien!

2011-04-28 [Figgy]: ;)

2012-03-09 [Figgy]: Post post! :D
