[ Teddy's messing with his device, pretty much trying to figure out how he could change the ring tone of it to something more him. He's not aware it's running, picking up the small furrow of concentration in his face. It's not really going to plan, and he's about to shove it in his pocket when he hears the crying. Teddy looks up, the device dropping to his side as he lets his hand fall, images of the park panning across the screen. To his right, down by some trees, a small boy has his hands balled up beside him and tears streaming down his face.

He immediately starts walking over, coming to crouch down beside him.
] Hey, are you okay?

[ The boy shakes his head, gives a furious sniff, and points upwards. Something is clearly lodged in the tree, a high, sturdy thing that people should only really climb if they did that kind of thing usually.

Teddy's shucking off his messenger bag immediately.
] Here, you can play with this while I get it for you, okay? [ He hands his device to the kid, who apparently seems to realise it's filming when Teddy didn't, because he gets in a hazy image of the boy taking off his jacket and -.

Changing. Green wings unfurl at his back, and his bulk increases significantly. His resemblance to the Hulk is probably not lost to many people, but he's still different. Then he's pushing off, flying up to the top of the tree to lay his hands on the kite. It's shaped like a rocket, and he can't help but smile as he drops back down and untangles the string to hand back.
] Here you go. Maybe don't fly it next to the trees next time?

[ Changing back, Teddy's picking everything back up again and laughing when the boy hands his device back with a wowed kind of silence. ] Thanks. [ He watches as the kid runs with his kite back into the centre of the park, is moving to pull his bag back on when he finally notices the little red light. ] Crap. At least it wasn't a kitten?

“Jennifer Aniston and Her New Man'" I read the words aloud uncertainly. "What new man? Why would she need a new man?"

Oh yes." Nicole follows my gaze, unconcerned. "You know she split up from Brad Pitt?"

Jennifer and Brad split?" I stare up at her, aghast. "You can't be serious! They can't have done!"

He went off with Angelina Jolie. They've got a daughter."

No!" I wail. "But Jen and Brad were so perfect together! They looked so good and they had that lovely wedding picture and everything...."

They're divorced now." Nicole shrugs, like it's no big deal.

I can't get over this. Jennifer and Brad divorced. The world is a different place.”

[ Ten minutes later, Teddy's face pops up on the screen. ]

Um, I don't know how that got there. I don't even know where it's from. [ Faint. ] I guess I'm finally getting cursed.

[ He's been here all morning, backpack slung over one shoulder, his hands buried deep in the pouch of his sweater. He's leaning back up against a wall, tapping his foot nervously on the concrete. There's a half-finished coffee beside his sneaker and he's chewing on a felt tip pen.

Clearly someone is bored.

Does anyone want to keep me company? I have skittles. And water. Good Con etiquette means you have to be prepared. Nobody wants a repeat of Sodagate '11. [ Severely.] Nobody.

[ Teddy's been exploring. He's actually quite fond of the place, even though he doesn't really understand it at all. Not really sure why he's here, or how he got here, or even if he's ever going to leave again, Teddy's been spending time mapping out the place instead of wondering why. It pays to be prepared, they've all learnt that.

That doesn't mean this place isn't going to keep surprising him.

Is that actually a unicorn? Like, seriously? [ Excuse the grin, he's impressed. ] What else does this place have? I'm not going to wake up with flying monkeys trying to steal my earrings or anything, am I? Or a kraken rising from the deep? Because while epic, I'm not sure I have the capacity for piracy.

[ Teddy looks vaguely nervous on screen, fingers plucking at the hem of his t-shirt, the other holding his device up. He's sitting cross-legged on the floor of his apartment, clearly working himself up to ask about something. ]

I hear this is the done thing around here. I uhm - I need a job. [ He is totally at working age, okay? Totally. ] I don't have a resume, but I can tell you what I'm good at. I'm strong, I'd be good for manual labour. [ Damn, this is harder than he thought it would be. How does one even say I fight bad guys for a living, but I hear there's not so much of that here so a normal job for me. ] I'm okay with pest control, and I'm great in a crisis.

[ Pause. ] And I mowed lawns for a summer a few years ago too.

I'll pretty much do anything. Anything at all. I'd learn quick too. Thank you for your time.

[ And end feed because that was awful. ]

[ The person that falls out of the sky doesn’t look natural, green skin, wings that span once and curl in on themselves. It’s the shock that does it, makes it impossible to land with any kind of grace, and the splash upon impact sends water cascading over the lip of the fountain.

The boy that eventually climbs out isn’t the same, blonde and built and normal. He looks far from threatening, pushing damp hair out of his eyes, earrings glinting in the light. Teddy finds it’s better to hide it away, to tuck himself in. He glances around himself with a frown, water seeping out from his costume as he stumbles out and straightens up.

Uh -. Billy? [ Where the hell is he? ] Tommy? Anyone? Is this a test. I really hope it’s a test. I’m down with the whole quest thing, but mostly when there’s a fellowship with bows, and axes, and the occassional sword. [Why yes, he is rambling. Completely and utterly rambling.

He’s skittish, can’t help himself, turns on his heel to get a closer look at the place. He needs to do recon, that’s what an Avenger would do, right?
] God, I suck at this.

[The device turns on to show a shot of floor, then bed and ceiling and it bumps and comes to rest, a blanket starting to slide after that. Suddenly, a green teddy bear comes into view, slipping off the blanket and onto the device.]


[The yelling stops and the bear appears to be moving of its own accord to switch off the video feed.]

[ooc: backdated to morning! In the end, I couldn't resist.]

[This, but with Teddy's voice accompanying.]

Guys, I swear I don't know how this happened.

Things I learned from the Network yesterday: be really careful when typing the word "clocks."

Anyway, the weather's really nice today. Anyone interested in Ultimate Frisbee or something?

It grated pepper at me with its arm. [Teddy sounds slightly annoyed and mostly baffled.] I guess I ended up in the totally lame corner of the fighting, but anyway, if anyone sees the one that literally looks like a pepper pot with a grinder appendage, I can assure you that all its attacks are seasoning-based. I dented it, but I'm not about to waste time putting it out of commission when some of these are actually dangerous.

If you're in the desert and you happen to see a giant sandworm, before you do anything else, remember that you are not Paul Atreides, and refrain from trying to ride it no matter how awesome it sounds in theory. That would be dumb.
22 February 2012 @ 10:05 pm
So apparently if you want to get to the desert there's a form for that. I don't really like the fine print, but at this point I don't really care if it means staying here longer, I just want to check up on what's going on. And anyway, I heard there was a sarlacc. Or possibly a "sarlaaaaaa*bzzzt*aaaaa."

I think it's possibly to carry things over, so if anyone desertside has requests, let me know. I'm just not sure I'll actually be able to figure out what you're asking for.

As much as these weekends can be fun, they're also pretty much the busiest for me. Which probably just goes to show how not-busy I tend to be without school and all...well, anyway, I'll be in the Welcome Center all day. If you've just arrived here I recommend stopping by for a quick orientation. And here's a map, in case.
