Title: CRITICAL AND IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Post by: QueenHolley on May 08, 2018, 10:57:38 pm
ATTENTION ALL!

My birthday is this Saturday! So to avoid dismal disappointments and terrible tragedies, I demand everyone to tell me what they will be giving me now.

Those that have less than stellar gift ideas will be subject to torture and/or summary execution. Or a day with Epsilon 1. Whatever is judged crueler.

That is all.

I'll deliver you one Myrmidon fighter, with order 66 already executed. Where do you want it?

I'll give an SC Rakshasa, an ultra-rare edition in commemoration of the Shivans' utter defeat in Capella.  It's specially modified with the controls translated from Shivan.

Counter-offer: Golden Kent plus chance to execute order 66.

Acceptable!

Retro stuff is pretty cool. Question: Did One Piece really start then, or has it been like, a cosmological constant throughout the universe's history?

Well, because my birthday is on friday i would say... fireworks in form of a supernova.

Very cool and pretty. Which star will you be blowing up? Also unrelated, Epsilon 1, standby for new orders...

Better hurry up then! Also there better be no cop-outs or lame cliches!

Both!

I'll give you a lifetime supply of ice cream.

And a boot to the heat. Wait what

I'll take the first and you can keep the second. :)

Probably Delta 1 so he knows how to get a nice house.  ;)


I can deliver my story but it's rather beat-up than upbeat. :D

Counter-offer: Golden Kent plus chance to execute order 66.

Fair enough, I still do need to make up for actually killing you in Delta Star.

Hey you could hand the book to Epsilon to keep him off you. :D
That way you can keep him busy for weeks, months, years! Maybe. Unless he's going to talk with you about it every day.

So I share a birthday with Queen Holley...

This is fantastic news!
Title: Re: CRITICAL AND IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

BTW, how old are you than, Holley? Or do you stay 17 forever, caught in a temporal paradox?

I fear that book would be much too interesting for him. I'd also be afraid he would try and sell me a dirt planet.

So I share a birthday with Queen Holley...

One of us is going to have to change then. And it's not going to be me...

BTW, how old are you than, Holley? Or do you stay 17 forever, caught in a temporal paradox?

Well due to the glacial speed at which JAD is written, I'll still be 17... But that's okay! Young enough to get away with anything and old enough to know what I can get away with. Maybe we'll get some progress one day that will let me be the wisest of all beings.

I'll give you the finest c. 21st century animes.

I'll just add a shipload of drinks (probably softdrinks...or not, depending on legal drinking age in your sector) and snacks (are you a vegan or something like that?) to that, to make it a nice evening you can spend with your friends. AND I'll take care of boring ol' Epsilon 1, so he doesn't ruin everything - even though that means he's gonna be my problem for a day, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for the Queen.

Everyone "Surprise!"
Holley: "Aah! A surprise party? On MY birthday?!"
Delta 1: "Yes, it really is amazing that QueenFreeSpace9000 managed to keep you from seeing those invites they sent us..."
Holley: "All that matters is that I'm spending this precious memory with my friends."
Delta 1: "Actually, that is quite the nice senti-"
Holley: "Alright, now what did you all get for presents?!"
Delta 1: "-ment..."
Meddy: "I got you a new hoodie, Holley. Your current one is getting a little ragged and smelly."
Holley: "It is against my personal beliefs to wash comfy clothing."
Meddy: "I also got you the number of this cute boy that works in the su-"
Holley: "Sherry, what's that box you got there?"
Sherry: "I purchased this charming Ravana-Mech dynamic action statue."
Holley: "Very nice! It looks just like it did from Vassago's Counterattack."
Sherry: "Also these history books about the struggles of the-"
Holley: "Harriet, you really didn't need to get me anything. But if you did, I'll take it anyway."
Harriet: "Mmmm..."
Holley: "Oooh nice, Node War Online premium pass! Now I can muscle in on Doomswarm's territory."
Epsilon 1: "Hello, Holley."
Holley: "Ugh, who invited you."
Epsilon 1: "I was unaware it was your birthday, so I was unable to obtain anything."
Holley: "What a shame."
Epsilon 1: "I found these bolts on the way here. I hope they will be suitable."
Holley: "...Okay then."
Holley: "Anna, what very cool item did you get me?"
Anna "The skull of Prophet Amarikzl'ratn, keeper of the Sinful Flame and Dagger of the 45 Frozen Nights. It is said its powers directly brought down 13 Vasudan Dynasties during the period known as "The Year of 27 Dynasties.""
Holley: "Thats... actually pretty cool."
Holley: "(Mental note: Regift to Epsilon 1 when possible)"
Holley: "Daddy, daddy. What did you get me?!"
Merv "Why I got you the gift of added responsibilities. In addition to cleaning the bathroom, you'll be cooking every second-"
Holley: "That's great daddy."
Holley: "Okay, Delta 1, what crazy thing did you get?"
Delta 1: "Before I give you it, I'd just like to say a few words."
Holley: "Oh boy."
Delta 1: "It was difficult to select the perfect gift. It is all too easy to choose something that will be forgotten or regifted at the first opportunity."
Delta 1: "What then is the secret to a good gift? Permanence. Sentimentality. Universality."
Holley: "(Maybe he'll finish in time for my next birthday.)"
Delta 1: "And with that I searched every single store on the station looking for something that met those qualities."
Anna "I can unfortunately attest to the literalness of that statement."
Delta 1: "At last I had found it and knew this would be a timeless treasure for you."
Delta 1: "Please enjoy."
Holley: "...What is it?"
Delta 1: "It's a holo picture frame. You can upload pictures of all the good times we all have had together, recollect on them and-"
Holley: "Oh hey, it has a video input. I can use this as another monitor."
Delta 1: "W-what. N-no, it's-"
Holley: "I'll be able to keep up with the Speedruns of Aftermath: Reboot while raiding."
Delta 1: "..."
Delta 1: "...G-good... I'm... I'm glad."
Meddy: "Well, that's everyone. Time for the cake!"
Holley: "Oh... yeah..."
Meddy: "Hey, where'd it go?!"
Sherry: "We placed it in the kitchen while we were setting up..."
Holley: "You expected cake, but it was eaten by me! Holley!"

Luckily they had a back up cake and everyone had fair and balanced portions!

(Mega props to Spoon for his unprompted artistic works that inspired this!)

I died  :wakka:

But seriously, how did that stream thing even explode like this (and why around Aftermath, there's a lot of other bad campaigns...)?
Title: Re: CRITICAL AND IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Post by: Axem on May 19, 2018, 09:54:17 am
Well Aftermath was the first campaign "The Lads" were streaming on twitch/discord and that's what drew people in.

Also c'mon guys, get that speedrun down to under 10 hours!
