9th Taste [video]

[ooc: This takes place before this conversation happens]

[It's becoming quite the shitty month for Terezi. As though the bucket job hadn't been bad enough, this time she was stuck coming up with anti-black hole conspiracy theories whilst babysitting a reckless human who was liable to do stupid things if unwatched AND now it turned out the Alternian Empress had arrived on board without her even noticing.

Which, really, had been inevitable. Alternia did have a lot of territory up here in paradox space.

And okay, the conspiracy theory job had been her own choice because it had seemed like fun at the time. Little had she realised that by the time she came to present her theory, it would be one which she partially believed.

Just ignore any sudden movements to keep Matthew in check. There will be no black hole eating on her watch]


Alright, people of Thor. There's been a lot of bullshit on this network about black holes and how we're all going to die because a giant hole in space is going to eat us. Apparently it's all anyone can talk about at the moment, so I suppose it's only fitting I should set you straight on a few things.

We are probably all going to die. This much is true and no amount of sacrifices or rituals will change this fact. Unless you can prove yourself useful, there is every chance you will be culled.

The black hole is a lie. It's an illusion, possibly the work of the subjugglators who even now are awaiting the Empress' command. Because that is the awful truth about our situation: the Alternian Empress, Her Imperious Condescension, is aboard this ship. It is likely the ship has crossed into her territory and she has come to conquer or destroy us. Probably both if she gets in a bad enough mood.

This is what you can do: nothing. Just sit and try not to get her attention and hope she merely decides to ignore you. If she asks of you, do as she asks and don't argue. Then you might have a chance of surviving. And don't, whatever you do, mouth off to her and yes Karkat that does mean you. Otherwise, make sure your affairs are in order and await the inevitable culling.

7th Taste [Audio/video]

This is stupid!

[That is your delightful audio introduction to this post. This outburst is followed by something sounding suspiciously like someone batting at their Guide - with a paw, for example. There's also a muttered, "First the bucket thing, now this"

Eventually, with a final decisive bat, the video feed switches on and there's Terezi. Things that are the same: she's still grey (mostly), her eyes are still red and burnt out, her horns and teeth are as pointy as ever.

Things that aren't the same: she's a kitten. Four paws, tail, cute little teal tongue, the works]


Why am I a pouncebeast? And why is there no-one here for me to pouncebeast at?

[Beat]

At least my nose and tongue still work.

[And that's where the feed ends.

Residents of 3-10 feel free to stumble upon this cute and fuzzy little bundle of joy. All replies will come from legislacerkitty]

6th Taste [Lol U Mad special]

[Hi folks! Enjoying your Guides? Well, when you next look at them, you will see the following:]

gallowsCalibrator [GC] began trolling flamingFerret [FF]

H3Y
CH3CK TH1S OUT!
R41NBOW RUMPUS P4RTY TOWN


[Anyone who clicks on the link will be brought to an open memo (set up similarly to this one) which appears, on the surface, to function just like a chat room. Just one catch - this chatroom is moderated by someone who is being paid to troll this month. Have fun with that I guess?]

[ooc: So Terezi's managing just fine seeking people to troll but why not let them come to her too. Other trolls, troll abaters and troll feeders feel free to leap in and do your jobs. The memo functions like a chat-room/group IM log but for the sake of sanity feel free to set up different threads - but also feel free to threadjack, counter-troll, leap into defence etc. Just a few things to note:

1) As maintainer of the memo, Terezi has a banhammer. Which she will use liberally (but will unban shortly afterwards if she feels like it)

2) Everything will be assumed to be public and thus fair game - feel free to block people ICly but try to save the private conversations for elsewhere.

3) Terezi will be using troll text throughout. If you have a problem with this, PLEASE note this when you first comment and I'll drop the font and quirk (though assume, ICly, she's still using it)

I have no idea how this is going to work but bring forth your trolls and to-be-trolled!]

5th Taste [Accidental video]

...and is it not true, Lord Carrotsnout, that your actions have brought disgrace not just to you but to society as a whole?

[Yes, folks, that's your introduction to this video. The accompanying image shows Terezi in her room, surrounded by scalemate plushies. On one of the walls, there's a chalk drawing of a figure, notated as "H1S HONOR4BL3 TYR4NNY". At present, she is addressing an orange scalemate, the aforementioned Lord Carrotsnout]

For sweeps, your matespritship with the esteemed Lady Plumsnout has been met with derision and scorn. You could have served as an example to society, an example of how pity can transcend matters of blood and of standing. And you chose to throw that all away because you forgot one simple thing: that with your Lady dead, any benefit you gained from being her matesprit no longer holds. Especially in light of what you did.

[At this last sentence she whips out her cane, pointing it at the scalemate's throat]

You led the sweet Lady on, made her believe you pitied her when really all you felt was envy of her station. And you would have gotten away with it, too, were it not for her loyal and devoted moirail.

[She walks over to a smaller, pink scalemate. The astute may note the knife protruding from its chest; Terezi appears not to have noticed]

Miss Strawberry, you have nothing to fear. Carrotsnout cannot harm you here.

[There's silence. Terezi leans in closer, sniffing before letting out a gasp]

Outrage! Murder, here in the courtblock! Such brazen acts of villany shall not go unpunished!

[And it's here the video cuts out.

Fellow residents of 3-10, feel free to action it up]

4th taste [video/action]

[The Guide switches on to show a rather young-looking troll girl - roughly seven years old, in human years - wandering the ship, a scalemate plush doll in each hand - one red, one yellow. Those who know Terezi will recognise the pointed horns and the teal symbol on her shirt but her eyes are yellow just as the other trolls' instead of red as they usually are. She also walks without stopping to sniff or lick things like she normally does.

She soon grows bored of wandering and sits in a random corridor, placing her scalemates before her.]

Lemonsnout, Cherrysnout, we have a mystery. We should talk to His Honorable Tyranny and see if he can show us the way.

[With that, she pulls out some chalk seemingly from nowhere and begins drawing on the wall. Safe to say she's not exactly panicking about being lost on a strange spaceship]

3rd Taste [video]

[The Guide kicks in to show Terezi at JugJug's stables, alongside a large, white dragon and various equipment for bathing dragons. The general chaos in the room - puddles, toppled pieces of furniture and so on - suggests that this is not her first "customer" and that things have been going about as well as you'd expect when a blind girl's involved. Indeed, she's soaked through but if she's noticed it then she evidentially doesn't care.

Currently, however, Terezi's looking oddly peaceful as she tends to the dragon before her. There's a brief fluster as the dragon gets restless and she has to give it a gentle drubbing with her cane but for the most part, things seem to be going well. And no, that wasn't her hugging the dragon's leg you just saw except that it totally was. In short: Happy Terezi is happy]

[ooc: anyone else assigned this job, feel free to come actionspam her. Or anyone who might just be passing by]
Eeeh?

Thirty Two Levels on my Dungeon-[Video]

[The feed begins, showing one very small human by the name of Matthew Gravesend and one not so small troll by the name of Terezi Pyrope. The always blind Terezi is waving coloured chalk under the temporarily blind Matthew's nose. Apparently, she is attempting to teach him to smell colours.]

Look, just forget about the chalk smelling like chalk. Here, maybe this will help.
[She shoves the chalk right into his face]

Woah, hold on-

[Either by accident or design, Matthew ends up with the chalk up his nose, and the blind boy snorts as he falls over with a light thud. Hopping back onto his feet, Matthew extends a hand towards the troll.]

This isn't working...I want to try something, give me your hand for a second?

[Terezi sighs and holds out her hand]

[Once Matthew has the girl's hand, a small burst of multi-coloured sparks jumps from his fingertips. A moment later, Matthew undergoes one of his signature transformations-a pair of somewhat devilish candy corn coloured horns slide out from under his hair, rainbow coloured light pouring out from under his skin, swirling until no details of his body can be seen through the display. Only a bright and vibrant outline of a human shape, until without warning the light fades flashes brighter, obscuring everything from sight. Once it fades, Matthew has completed a transformation into a very short and blind folded Alternian troll, a circle in rainbow tones on his fresh black shirt. He takes a deep breath through his nose.]

Oh! Now I get it.

2nd Taste [accidental video/action]

[As soon as Terezi wakes up, she can tell something's not right. It could be the fact that she's now apparently walking on four legs not two, or that she apparently has wings and a tail, but it's actually a much more pressing issue than that.

Now that she's a hoofbeast and not a troll, Terezi's other senses aren't compensating for her sight. That's right, folks, she's completely blind. The Guide, either as a form of karmic payback or because it feels at least a little sorry for her, cuts in to show her fumbling around her room, walking into a lot of things and cursing loudly

For those in 3-10, feel free to investigate the weird crashing noises coming from your roomie's room. For everyone else, have fun pestering the actually blind girl?]

1st taste [video]

[The feed jolts on with a blur of motion. When it settles, there are a lot of bright colours and shapes visible. Off-camera, a heated discussion is in progress.]

Look, this is what the kid wants-

I don't care! I am not drawing something so disgusting! Get one of the others to do it.

You're the one on the schedule today. What's so hard about drawing a stupid bucket?

Wrigglers shouldn't want to draw them! I refuse to have any part in your encouragement of such filth!

But it's a bucket!

And I find it offensive! Anyway, if the dumbass can't draw...one of those, what's he doing trying to draw at all?

[The argument carries on in a similar vein for a few moments]

[Sigh] Fine. But please, stop telling the kids what you think the crayons taste of. Any more complaints from the parents and Happy Drawing Time stops being so happy, understand?

[And the feed cuts out]
