Be the Brownblood

Your name is FEFERI PEIXES, although that name is LARGELY IRRELEVANT. In fact, you could say that your ENTIRE BEING has been and will be LARGELY IRRELEVANT. You are A PRISONER, of sorts, although merely being a prisoner would be so much better than what you actually are.

You used to enjoy COMMUNING WITH THE WILDLIFE, which was helped in a large part by your PSYCHIC POWERS. Now you are not allowed near any animals except your loyal LUSUS TINKERBULL, because he is COMPLETELY HARMLESS, just like you.

You didn’t know what you wanted to do when you grew up, except that it would be SOMETHING WORTH DOING, something you might BE REMEMBERED BY. You guess you came pretty close, for a little while. Now, however, you are NOTHING.

You didn’t have many interests other than TAKING CARE of FLORA AND FAUNA of all sorts and you did quite a lot of work in your GARDEN. The garden of your OLD HIVE, that is. You guess having a talent for that comes in handy now.

There are many nights that you wish you DID NOT EXIST.

Your trolltag is cultureCultivated and you have a rea11y down-to-earth attitude.

You are currently in your respiteblock, which is, coincidentally, your entire hive, waiting for your next command.

That is odd, someone other than your Mistress is contacting you. You weren’t aware you had any friends that still did that.

Peixes: Answer AA

You aren’t really sure if you should, because it could be very dangerous. Then again, you haven’t talked to one of your real friends in a very long time.

You decide to answer.

You are not sure how to feel about this. Empty, maybe. Hollow. Yes, that’s it. Hollow. All she tried to do was make you feel better and you just told her off.

But you had to! You couldn’t let your Mistress find out about this or you would get culled and she would have found out, too! You’re still not sure she won’t!

But trying to justify that to yourself won’t make you feel any better. You hope she understands. She probably does. Now you just have to wipe your brown-stained cheeks before you meet your Mistress again.

Peixes: Describe Your Respiteblock

You would, but there’s really nothing to describe. You just have a recuperacoon and a husktop. You aren’t allowed to have anything else except for your clothes and you’re only allowed to have a husktop so your Mistress can tell you to do something without having to come down in person.

Your clothes are also entirely grey, since you are not allowed to wear your sign anymore. You are pretty sure it resembled the shape of your horns, though.

You cannot even see the sea outside of your Mistress’ hive, since there are no windows. However, you can still hear it. Every day and every night. You would like to imagine it sounds like freedom, but you’ve been hearing it for far too long to still believe that.

It looks like your Mistress needs you again.

Peixes: Answer Mistress

-- aquaticGriefer [AG] began trolling cultureCultivated [CC] --

AG: Peixessss!
AG: Anssssver me!

CC: Yes, Mistress.
AG: Very good.
AG: I ssssupposssse thissss issss vhere I sssshould assssk you hov you are.

CC: Very good, Mistress.
AG: I do not recall actually assssking.
CC: I’m sorry, Mistress.
AG: That’ssss better.
AG: Nov then, you have been a very good sssslave lately.
AG: You may be expecting ssssome ssssort of reward.
AG: But I think the lack of punisssshement sssshall have to do.

CC: Thank you, Mistress.
AG: Vhat have you been doing all night long, Peixessss?
AG: Thissss issss out of genuine curiossssity, you undersssstand.

CC: 1 have been waiting for your command, Mistress.
AG: That issss ssssuch hoofbeasssstsssshit, Peixessss.
AG: Vhat did you do?

CC: 1 did not do anything, Mistress.
CC: There is nothing 1 can do, Mistress.

AG: You ssssound disssspleassssed, Peixessss.
AG: Issss there anything I can do to make your stay at my humble abode more pleassssant?
AG: Ssssomething to easssse your troublessss?
AG: Anything to take your mind off of thosssse you left behind?
AG: Hov dissssappointed they musssst be.
AG: Although you don’t care, do you?
AG: Not vith him dead.
AG: Nothing elsssse matterssss to you anymore, doessss it?
AG: Except perhapssss one thing.
AG: But even the possssibility for revenge hassss been taken from you.
AG: Hov ssssad an exisssstance you lead, Peixessss.
AG: And the besssst part issss that I’m not even the one you blame for it.
AG: You are abssssolutely pathetic, Peixessss.

CC: 1 exist only to serve, Mistress.
AG: Hahaha!
AG: Ssssure you do.
AG: Tell you what, Peixessss, vhen ve’ve von, I’ll let you kill him before I finally end your ssssuffering.
AG: I’m ssssure you vould enjoy that, in the final fev ssssecondssss of your life.
AG: And then you’ll finally be reunited.
AG: How romantic.

CC: Yes, Mistress.
AG: Lissssten Peixessss, I knov you’re crying right nov, but I don’t vant to ssssee a ssssingle ugly brovn sssstain on you vhen you bring me my lunch.
AG: Sssso make ssssure you’re pressssentable vhen you get up here.

CC: Of course, Mistress.
AG: I’m ssssure our glorioussss emperor hassss more thingssss for me to do tonight.
AG: Even if it’ssss only making you catch more lussssi for him.
AG: Sssso hurry up.

CC: 1 wi11, Mistress.
AG: And get yoursssself ssssomething to eat on the vay here.
AG: It vouldn’t do to have you die on the vay there, after all.

CC: Yes, Mistress.

-- aquaticGriefer [AG] ceased trolling cultureCultivated [CC] --

You hate it when she knows you’re crying, because she doesn’t actually know. She’s just guessing, that’s all. But she always guesses right. She knows you far too well and every time you talk to her you can almost feel her wriggling her way into your mind and taking more of you away.

Ever since you became part of Vriska Serket’s hivehold, she has been rubbing what you now call ‘the Event’ in your face every conversation you’ve had. It doesn’t matter if there’s actually any cause to it, she’ll just steer the conversation in that direction anyway, just to spite you. You’ve been trying to ignore it, to let her ramble on, but you can’t stop it from hurting you. Time and time again.

You really wish you were dead. But you can’t die. Not yet. There are still people counting on you, and you will not let them down.

Peixes: Make Lunch

So for now you will be making lunch for your Mistress. In the meantime, you’ll grab yourself something significantly less nourishing to eat and try not to think about him. Try not to think about your best (and maybe even a bit more than that) friend your Mistress killed.

You will make a small, but slightly obvious mistake in the lunch so your Mistress doesn’t ask any questions about anything else.

You will be beaten for it, and then you’ll have to clean yourself up before your next task. You reason we probably don’t want to see any of that, and suggest we go be someone else now.

It’s not like you’re at all significant, anyway.

Be ‘Him’

n0

Be AA

You are now THE GREENBLOOD, which makes sense, because you’ve ALWAYS BEEN THE GREENBLOOD.

Your name is ARADIA MEGIDO and you are GETTING READY for AN ADVENTURE. This is not really worth mentioning, as such, because you are ALWAYS GETTING READY for adventures. ADVENTURING is one of your main INTERESTS, after all.

Although this adventure is definitely SPECIAL and you have been working to make sure it starts for QUITE A LONG WHILE, together with a few of your friends. You were specifically asked by one of them because of your OTHER MAIN INTEREST, which is ARCHAEOLOGY.

You are filled with RENEWED RESOLVE due to this new adventure, because you have been having a SHITTY COUPLE OF PERIGREES, if you will excuse your language, ever since THE EVENT.

Because of THE EVENT, you have also been rather reluctant in indulging in another interest, namely ROLEPLAYING. The only trolls you can still play with ARE NOT VERY NICE. You have noticed that is a very common trait in trolls, and you are glad that you found a few who DEVIATE FROM THE NORM.

You like to call your hive the HOME BASE for your adventures, although, in reality, it is just A CAVE, but it is an AWESOME CAVE. It holds all sorts of TROPHIES you have dug up in your travels and you are VERY PROUD of them.

Your trolltag is adventureArchaeologist and you lik3 to think you sp33k in a slightly silly mann3r

You don’t socialize much.

Aradia: Exposit

As previously mentioned, you were getting ready for an adventure. You had a lot of help from a friend in arranging the adventure and now it is in the hands of another troll to finish and then you can finally start adventuring. You are really looking forward to this adventure, even more so than every other one, because this one is going to change everything.

Really, the importance of everything changing is almost equal to the importance of having fun during it.

Although, the anticipation is really killing you. Maybe you should talk to another friend to occupy yourself before you accidentally break down your cave?

Aradia: Talk To Partner In Peace

Yes, you’ll talk to that friend. He can be a little slow sometimes, but if you’re patient enough he can turn out to be really smart!

Aradia: Meet Other Friend

You still have to talk to another friend before everything is finally in place. This friend is a bit special though. You’re pretty sure most people would not believe he was even talking to you, but he is, and he’s important.

He is going to help you change the world.

It really is a shame we do not get to see him yet.
