GT: hey dev! still alive or have you joined the ghosts haunting your sweet-ass hive already? §:B

TG: ((no buddy im dead this is a spooky ghost chat))

TG: ((fulfilling all your adolescent dreams but plz to be waiting until were done chatting to coat your keyboard with spunk if you dont mind))

TG: ((you dont want me to wrongly assume you've gone afk with no fucking warning once again and sign off on you in the middle of a thrilling description of paranormal shenanigans right))

GT: haha, okay. i'll wait until you're done to pull out my flushed pail.

GT: i decorated it with a screencap from the board where we first heard about your gorgeous, gorgeous new hive, remember?

TG: ((the one that makes it look like a giant hoofbeast dick surging from the waters with violent enthusiasm right))

TG: ((how could i ever forget that shit is engraved in my thinkpan like my thinkpan is a plaque of titanium that equius traced high art onto))

GT: eww, buddy.

GT: but anyway, your hive? §:D

TG: ((i feel so pitied here its insane))

TG: ((careful rrhoze doesnt happen upon this innocent chatlog and notice the pale passion oozing from your grasping fronds onto the screen))

TG: ((oh no dehvid had to relocate to some abandoned hive in the middle of the fucken sea that even the demolition drones wont go to and stories of death and misery are told about))

TG: ((thats so awesome we should put a camera on his head and throw him into a random secret passage every day woowee))

GT: it kind of would be awesome, actually, hehehehe.

TG: ((you little turdmuncher why i ought to sign right off))

GT: aww, you know i'm just kidding. come on, buddy, story please.

GT: i'll send you snacks!

TG: ((they better be the really expensive ones))

TG: ((so))

TG: ((our hero wakes up in the evening and wonders))

TG: ((will it be the random roving robots today or the inexplicable rain of fish))

TG: ((mayhaps the appliances turning themselves on as he walks past hey little boy do you want something *defrosted*??))

TG: ((or will he come out of the coon to find an innocent black pail seated right in the middle of the carpet yeah thanks voyeurghost it would have been useful two hours ago and then again only if youd woken me up first but never mind))

GT: oh my GOG. §XDDDDD

GT: wait, that really did happen??? oh wow.

TG: ((yes))

TG: ((it really did))

GT: woooow, you still jizz your coon in your sleep, bro. how old are you again?

TG: ((...))

TG: ((shut up i was visited in dreams by the ghosts of troll demi moore and troll will smith i bet ur jelly now))

GT: hehehe. yeah, totally jelly!

GT: but seriously, your ghost is a major creepster.

TG: ((tell me something new))

TG: ((makes for a really fun life experience im never bored))

TG: ((also either ive gotten used to avoiding the traps or ive triggered them all and theyre done cause the lethal shit has been happening way less often))

GT: it's probably lulling you into a false sense of security. and then when you least expect it... SPLAT!

TG: ((yeah thats what i assumed))

GT: it sounds like so much fun, i wish i could visit you.

TG: ((yeah bro that sounds like an awesome idea))

TG: ((i see you in the evening preparing your little overday bag))

TG: ((and then your darling neighbor ex who *still has your keys what the fuck johonn* walks right in and asks you where youre going))

TG: ((oh just visiting my buddy dehvid you remember him he cockblocked you killing aradia and you went and killed his lusus and then he killed your lusus to the betterment of everyones quality of life yourself included but its okay youve totally forgiven him for that one right))

GT: §:/ aw, come on.

TG: ((now please dont follow me i know youll respect my request because you have no boundary issues whatsoever and did not swear revenge forcing him to abandon his actual hive at fucking all))

GT: *SIGH* okay, okay! stop it with the guilt trip already, i get it!

GT: not even if i stopped by rrhoze's first to cut the trail?

TG: ((sorry bro))

TG: ((maybe later but atm i dont feel ive mastered the arcane secrets of this majestic hive enough to ensure a guests safety and if i get you culled via hilarious boulder drop rrhoze will subjugglate me into fine paste))

TG: ((and then the ghost may well swear vendetta on her))

TG: ((come to think of it they would have a pitch romance for the ages hmmm maybe were onto something))

GT: pfffffff.

GT: i'm totally taking this as a promise to invite us over in the future so you can matchmake. i'm telling her right now!

TG: ((no bro dont tell her then ill have to))

GT: too late! hehehe. §:B

GT: she said: "~Delightful. I shall wear my finest facepaint.~"

TG: ((damnit))

TG: ((gtg a fucking delivery drone just drifted half drowned onto my doorstep what the hell))

-- turntechGodhead [TG] is idle! --

TG: ((ok now its fully drowned and i got a month of free groceries))

TG: ((did you know my hives foundation was home to a robot kraken))

CG: ALRIGHT, ENOUGH DUMBFUCKERY.

CG: SOLLUX HAS BEEN ENSCONCED IN THIS SECRET PROJECT OF HIS FOR SIX FUCKING NIGHTS NOW, AND ALL I KNOW ABOUT IT IS THAT HE HAS LOST THREE COMPUTERS, SOME OF WHICH HE COULD NOT AFFORD TO CASUALLY WASTE, AND THAT YOU ARE INVOLVED IN THE DEBACLE.

CG: WHAT IN THE VAST REACHES OF OUR TENDER, CARING HIVEWORLD IS GOING ON?

CG: DON'T EVEN THINK OF NOT TELLING ME, I WILL SPAM YOU UNTIL YOU SPIT IT OUT AND YOU KNOW IT.

TG: ((thats the thing it might not be happening on alternia at all))

CG: WHAT.

TG: ((and the worst is im not sure if i mean its offworldly or otherworldly this is unnerving as fuck here you happy))

CG: UH. DEHVID. ARE YOU ALRIGHT?

CG: THAT WAS, ER. SURPRISINGLY CANDID.

TG: ((ive been living in freakland for almost a perigee im ready to be candid with a fucking rock at this point))

TG: ((the only reason i havent been contacted by rrhoze much is she could tell id crack with zero effort on her part and its too easy for her!!))

TG: ((rauuuughgh!!!!))

CG: UH.

CG: YOU KNOW I'M YOUR FRIEND, AND

CG: I WOULD BE GLAD TO HELP YOU, I GUESS.

CG: WELL I WOULDN'T MIND TOO MUCH.

CG: IN A PURELY, UNAMBIGUOUSLY FRIENDLY FASHION.

CG: BUT, UM. GAMZEE IS NOT SO GOOD AT THE AMBIGUOUS STUFF.

CG: DEV?

CG: DEHVID STRYDE, YOU GET BACK ON LINE THIS INSTANT.

TG: ((yeah sorry for missing your touching display of no pile bro))

TG: ((youve been thwarted by a surprise contender))

TG: ((by which i mean a titchy little robot just whirred out of the wall and beat me in the face with a down filled pillow))

CG: OKAY, YOU NEED TO TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING ON.

CG: I HEARD ABOUT THE EMERGENCY RELOCATING ALREADY. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THE NEW HIVE?

TG: ((whats not the problem with the new hive))

TG: ((well first its a sea dweller hive so ofc youd expect the easily triggered secret passages in stupid places and the five unnecessary levels between each useable block yeah))

CG: YEAH, THAT'S TO BE EXPECTED. PAN-TWISTED PARANOIACS.

TG: ((the place is lousy with robots))

TG: ((a lot of them are rusted and havent had maintenance in however many sweeps since the owner died or was conscripted whatever and the programming gets glitchy as fuck))

TG: ((could be doing anything i get attacked and strifed to within an inch of my life with very real blades that would kill me very real dead if i miss my swing and then suddenly the robot will whirr off and im left in a puddle of my sweat on the floor wondering what the fuck))

CG: SHIT, YEAH, THAT SOUNDS NERVE-WRACKING.

TG: ((and then the pizza drone will get a bad address and randomly drop me five of my favorite on the house))

CG: ... HUH.

TG: ((also once i was in the kitchen trying to open a stuck cupboard and the lamps went all flickery like oooh now youve done it bro and the robokraken slipped a fucking tentacle through the window and chucked me into the ocean))

TG: ((had to swim back through its tentacles that was fucking awesome i know how to swim super well being a land dweller from a desert town))

TG: ((well now i know how to a little better than i did i guess))

TG: ((went back to the cupboard turns out it was full of creepnasty sex puppets))

TG: ((aw you hungry boy YOU CAN FEAST ON OUR BULGE SHAPED SNIFFNODES open wide!!))

CG: STRYDE, IF YOU MAKE ME SHUSH YOU I WILL MAKE YOU REGRET IT YOUR WHOLE LIFE.

CG: NOT THAT IT WILL BE VERY LONG ONCE GAMZEE HAS HAD HIS CLUBBY WAY WITH YOUR HORN SOCKETS.

TG: ((argh sorry jegusfuck))

TG: ((you know im not pale for you bro esp not with me as the pappee thats just wrong for our normal states of mind))

CG: OHO. DID YOU JUST INDICATE AN INTEREST IN APPLYING YOUR PALM TO MY SNOUT HERE?

TG: ((gogdamnit))

TG: ((NO.))

CG: THERE, THERE, I'M JUST YANKING YOUR METALLIC RETAINING DEVICE. SEE? NOW YOU'RE NOT FREAKING OUT AT THE HIVE ANY LONGER.

TG: ((no im freaking out at you *because youre trying to calm me down* thats way better))

CG: SHUT UP. ANY OTHER STRANGE EVENTS?

TG: ((that's the gist of it))

TG: ((apart from that time it brought me a pail because id jizzed my coon that one was really above and beyond but apart from that its just more of the same thing))

TG: ((surprise sparring surprise food delivery sometimes the kraken beans me in the head with fresh trout the appliances and wall lights all say hello when i walk by))

TG: ((oh and i get free movies on all the sites i have accounts at))

TG: ((the download speed is unreal))

CG: WOULD YOU SAY THAT THE SURPRISE STRIFING HAS IMPROVED YOUR ABILITY?

TG: ((fuck yeah it was that or dying))

TG: ((oh and that time i fell through a floor trap and ended up in an armory))

TG: ((wall to wall sharp shit gorgeousness))

TG: ((and then of course surprise guardianbot to vanquish and then it turned out all the blades were curved and i suck a bit at handling them its gonna take me a while to figure them out))

CG: I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

TG: ((yeah me neither))

CG: I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT YOU DON'T EVEN NOTICE THAT YOUR HIVE IS FLIRTING WITH YOU.

TG: ((...... wat))

CG: AND THAT IT'S WORKING.

TG: ((okay no stop right there with your ridic shenanigans were not in one of your movies in which some asshole fills pail with a ghost and then chooses to get culled to join them in death as violins and bone percussion music swells in the background))

TG: ((were in the real world here and random acts of shitty programming are not romantic fucking declarations!))

CG: WHEN YOU WERE TELLING ME ABOUT THE ARMORY.

CG: I DARE YOU TO TELL ME YOU WERE NOT SMILING.

TG: ((you know what))

TG: ((youre zero help and i should have known that))

TG: ((fuck you and good night))

GT: Oh wait, looks like I forgot my fact iron up your asshole.

GT: ...

GT: Okay. Sass on pause.

TG: ((?))

TG: ((sass paused i guess))

GT: So we're all clear on the topic and it never needs revisited again, I have zero interest in your various bodily orifices and the filling thereof. The snark will flow and ain't no stopping it, but that's all it is. Okay? Okay.

GT: Sass away.

TG: ((see now ive got permission its not as fun somehow))

TG: ((i know ill be super polite itll be a novel experience))

GT: You little shit.

TG: ((but a cute shit right))

GT: Imagine me pursing my lips very sternly.

TG: ((dude cant imagine you i dont know what you look like))

GT: I've got a head, two arms, and two legs. The head is toward the top.

TG: ((that is super not fair i bet youve got cameras everywhere and know perfectly well what i look like naked))

GT: Yeah. Sorry about that.

GT: The security system still reports to me so I did get a couple eyefuls of your tender wigglerhood, or what there was of it.

TG: ((dont know if should be creeped or not))

GT: I've put it on lockdown since but the bots also have cameras and I can't turn those off, they need them to get around.

TG: ((leaning toward creeped tbh))

GT: That is an entirely reasonable reaction toward the situation.

TG: ((you owe me))

GT: Alright. I'll trade you for rent.

TG: ((whoa whoa there im not that kind of boy are you suggesting im paying you with my body))

GT: ... Wow, I seem to keep running right back to creeperhood without even trying. Looks like that is my true home. Good job, self.

GT: I also completely missed the fact that you tried to play me, by the way.

TG: ((eh just cause im using it to play you doesnt make it not true))

TG: ((at least my hatefriend rrhoze always says so and if that was fake it would mean shes a big lying liar and that just cannot be true because she told me so))

GT: Heh, okay. What do I owe you?

TG: ((hmmm five questions))

GT: Alright.

TG: ((asl))

GT: That's three questions.

TG: ((no its three letters gogdamn you really need a new fact iron))

TG: ((also a name thatd be cool))

GT: Pff. Fine. Director Vibronic.

TG: ((oh uh you already have a title))

TG: ((i thought maybe you were younger))

GT: I got the title pretty young. 32/Male/Somewhere in space.

GT: Just call me Bro. *Not* Vibe, for the pity you bear your matesprit.

TG: ((why not))

TG: ((apart from the fact that its kind of pervy))

GT: Second question, and it's what my actors call me.

TG: ((youre a movie director right? thats p cool))

GT: ...

GT: I do pornographic propaganda.

TG: ((asjkl))

TG: ((*what*))

GT: Fill buckets for your Empire, that's sexy. Being a threshecutioner gets you a ton of tail, guaranteed, look what happens in the barracks. Best ten inappropriate uses of your field weapon. Etc. Etc.

GT: It's ridiculously, painfully boring.

GT: I used to love making porn when I was still on planet. Now I have quotas to fill and patriotic slogans to slip in and it's just plain boring. Even the how to make the dialogue sound hilariously wrong game has stopped being funny. I get handed a pail and I yawn. My job will get me culled for inability to provide slurry some day soon, the rate it's going.

TG: ((youre kind of coming on a bit strong here dude))

GT: ...

GT: *Fuck.*

TG: ((sokay just))

GT: Sorry. Didn't mean to come on to you.

GT: I've got to go back to 'coon, I've got two hours of sleep left in my day and I'm going to need them. Later.

TG: ((NO WAIT))

GT: All caps? Huh. Okay, I'm waiting.

TG: ((i uh was supposed to give you a message from my hatefriend aradia))

TG: ((shes solluxs palemate idk if you know who he is))

GT: Oh.

GT: I've got his profile. Yellowblood armageddon hacker dude who's been trying to get to me?

TG: ((yeah exactly))

TG: ((let me just))

TG: AA: tell him if he keeps breaking s0lluxs c0mputers s0 casually that he sh0uld pay f0r them t00 AA: its pissing him 0ff t0 the max which makes him desperate t0 try again which means he wastes m0ney he can n0t aff0rd to spend t0 replace his machines AA: als0 ive been getting hardc0re pilebl0cked f0r weeks n0w and that is n0t 0n

GT: Yeah, okay. I've got his banking info. Will tweak a couple of things.

GT: Goodnight.

TG: ((wait))

GT: What.

TG: AA: and if he tries to pap y0ur glutes tell him im sending all the kismeses hes ever 0ffed by mistake or b0red0m after him

TG: ((poke))

TG: ((still there))

GT: Yeah. Tell your friend not to worry about that. Can I go and get some sleep now.

TG: ((are you kidding when am i gonna find you sleep deprived and off balance from pissiness next))

GT: Gogdamnit, Dehvid.

TG: ((so uh))

TG: ((how pale for me are you exactly))

GT: Pale enough that I'm not going to indulge in your awkward flirting because you think there's little risk on account of my being off-planet and it's really freaking titillating to have an adult after you.

GT: You're wrong. There is a risk. I'm a fucking fish troll, we're not known to be stable. You really don't need to be encouraging me.

GT: We can chat. We can even, perhaps, become hatefriends. But if you try to tempt me to have a feelings jam with you I am ending this, permanently.

TG: ((dude youre the one who started hitting on me first!))

GT: Yeah. That's exactly why I need to set clear limits so it doesn't happen again.

GT: Night.

TG: ((i just remembered i forgot to feed the kraken whoops))

TG: ((gtg before it decides to dine on my gorgeous glutes))

GG: stay right where you are, dev!!! ∑>:( like we dont know its a freaking robot!!

AC: :33 < *the huntress stalks clowdser through the high grass, tail lashing*

AC: :33 < *she knows the featherbeast is hiding things furrom her!!*

TG: ((ah but did you know tz and karkat are totally gonna end up a blackrom item like pretty soon at the rate its going))

TG: ((im leaning toward caliginous but they keep going back and forth on whether they want to go that far its wearying))

TT: ~It's truly hard to guess. My best guess would be that they would land on ash purely from how awkward they both are at admitting that they do want to kiss, and possibly vigorously.~

TT: ~It reminds me of another current case of awkward dancing around quadrants...~

TG: ((ffff))

AC: :33 < :3333333333 come on, you know i'm not that bad at pale ship pounceling, it couldn't hurt!

TG: ((ok fine))

TG: ((so im being NOT palecourted by an adult))

TG: ((putting this on the table so everyone can see it))

AC: :33 < :OO

TG: ((seadweller title of director vibronic 32 sweeps old))

GG: holy SHIT. ∑:(

TG: ((yeah))

TT: ~NOT courted, you say?~

TG: ((yeah dude accidentally slipped up and told me all about his shitty moviemaking life and then freaked out saying that was never gonna happen again cause he was dangerous and i needed to not be encouraging him bluhbluh dev i know im TITILLATING but you should guard your chastity better))

TG: ((yeah totally my fault you unloaded on me dude))

TG: ((anyway its been like ten days now and hes been afk nonstop so probably hes decided to lock away the temptation of my fragile barely pubescent cuddlefronds))

TG: ((fuck him seriously he can get off to all the spy cameras hes got in my hive))

TG: ((ok his hive i guess))

TG: ((but he wont say hi or anything just watch from the shadows???))

TG: ((THAT IS ABOUT TEN TIMES MORE CREEPY))

TT: ~It does seem he is aware that his ephebophiliac tendencies are wrong, at least.~

TT: ~That does not mean he does not have them. You should heed his warning.~

TT: ~If he is truly feeling the stirrings of pale affection then the last thing he wants is to hurt you, yet attempting to have you reciprocate his feelings would do just that.~

TT: ~Cautious distance seems like the best bet, in my opinion.~

TT: ~Hell no.~

TT: ~But I'm the indigoblood who enjoys juggling burning clubs.~

AC: :33 < it sounds like you're purrty intrigued!

TG: ((not funny))

TT: ~I beg to differ.~

TT: ~Only one of my hands is currently cupping my chin.~

TG: ((not you too i thought you agreed he was dangerous))

TT: ~Of course he is, and of course you should not attempt to go any farther than a mild, unrealized crush.~

TT: ~There is no possible way for an adolescent not even seven sweeps old to enter into a balanced moirallegiance with an adult, especially an adult in a position of authority over other people in his daily life and not a confused, barely post-ascension one. You could not conceivably stop his rages, or understand his responsibilities more than academically, and he could not grasp your own troubles without the filmy grip of nostalgia for his own wigglerhood obscuring his grasp on the matter. Also he would be likely to offer you advice of the "You'll understand when you're older" or "It'll pass and then you'll wonder why you even cared at all" variety.~

TT: ~But I have to admit seeing you so flustered is adorable.~

TG: ((i hate you all))

TT: ~Ah, but over the cooing, or over the pileblocking?~

GT: that other things.

TG: ((that one doesnt count cmon))

TG: ((three questions??))

GT: Is that your third question?

TG: ((no))

TG: ((that aint as funny as you think it is bro))

GT: You're wrong. It is in fact entirely that funny.

GT: If you're going to ask about pile-related shit, can you wait until I'm out of this meeting and possibly have a bottle of something outrageously alcoholic in hand. For reasons.

TG: ((no uh))

TG: ((i figure we got close enough to that topic for the time being))

TG: ((like any closer were gonna be goosing the sun and thats always a pretty crispy plan))

GT: No fucking kidding. So?

TG: ((so uh))

TG: ((oh right tell me about your job))

TG: ((im too used to photography thats kinda more two dimensional somehow adding a timeline to that shit sounds hella interesting))

GT: That's going to count as at least two questions. Fair?

TG: ((yeah sure))

TG: ((ill keep the last question for when i really need it))

GT: I tremble in fear.

TG: ((yeah you may im very fearsome you know))

TG: ((hmph))

GT: Go and try them on. Gotta have them changed if they don't fit.

TG: ((no they fit))

TG: ((thanks i guess didnt know if my id would be valid at a clothes store))

TG: ((you gonna delete the pic then))

GT: Fuck no.

TG: ((asjrdonklk))

GT: Might encrypt it and lose it on an external drive for the next four sweeps. If when you're adult you still want me to look at it then

GT: Well.

GT: I do have an unfortunate kink for underage pale twinks that's approximately the size of the pink moon.

TG: ((id have said the green))

GT: Shut up, you shooshtease.

GT: Anyway if once you're adult you're still fine with it you best believe I am going to pap my own face raw over it. Shit, kid.

TG: ((... wow um))

TG: ((wow.))

GT: Moving on. You really do have an eye for composition. Nice work.

GT: Now stand by as I upgrade your bot. No sudden movements before I'm done, you hear me?

TG: ((the barn is empty and barren without it))

TG: ((sobbing all day oh no where has my hoofbeast gone and no one fucking knows))

GT: I thought we'd wordlessly agreed to never mention that. It's my own personal indulgence to my own desires and nothing you asked for and therefore it doesn't need brought up, at all, ever.

TG: ((oh my holy globe burgers bro no i was kidding im entirely fine with not getting to craft an awesome rap on the theme of your deflowering prowess thatll leave me torn between admiration and horror im really super fine with it))

GT: It's too late to run. You brought unfresh rhymes to the table, I'mma make you eat them. Be a good wiggler and prepare to be schooled.

GT: Yeah and that makes Terezi flip, too. She's jealous that you won't flip for her.

TG: ((no shes not))

GT: Yes, she is.

TG: ((no))

GT: Ask Karkat what he thinks. He'll tell you at great length, I'm sure.

TG: ((fuck no im not asking him hell want to draw up schedules again i dont know how many times i gotta suplex him into walls to make him stop))
