Lost Carnival IC Contact

FREQUENCY: 986.69384
DESCRIPTION: Ginko will usually try to answer his radio right away, unless he's in the middle of something urgent. Like if the Rodent of Unusual Size is trying to chew his hand off.

LOCATION: Mailbox on Door
DESCRIPTION: A simple wooden box with a lid. There's a small wedge on top of the box, and a note asking people to use it to prop the lid open if they leave mail inside (because Ginko can't be bothered to check his mail on a regular basis).

[Steven's been making seashell jewelry with the merfolk, and so naturally he's decided to share the wealth with his treasured friends. He'll either give it to you in person or via your mailbox. If in person, he'll pretty much just swim up to you and be like "Here! This is for you! I made it!" and if you get it in the mailbox it will have a note with it that basically says the same thing, plus a small doodle of a heart-shaped fish.

Steven has made Ginko a seashell necklace. It will be gifted sometime during the off week.]

It's been like this as long as I've known him.

[Starting at around 3:00 in the morning that evening he starts sending Ginko small updates throughout the day as he tries deal with the colossal mess he's made.]

[It's just a couple days after their talk that Foster calls Ginko up on the radio.]

Ginko. You work with the animals, right? Or... whatever you call them. Creatures.
control_freak: (Sleep not as an island)

[personal profile] control_freak 2017-08-21 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
You haven't seen that shadow creature, have you?

[His tone is detached, disconnected, as though indifferent.]

Mimikyu. You know, the thing that liked banana doughnuts.

[But the fact that he's asking--]

[personal profile] control_freak 2017-08-23 09:28 am (UTC)(link)
[So it's not just him.]


I'm not 'allowed' to have it.

[Whatever Ginko was hoping for there, Foster's response is pretty much the opposite reassuring.

He just starts laughing.
control_freak: (Hold onto your humility)

[personal profile] control_freak 2017-08-24 05:01 pm (UTC)(link)

[He laughs, but:]

If Sans has it, then I might as well accept that I'll never see it again.

[The walkie talkie is... silent for a moment.

Ginko had struck Foster very much as the type to follow the rules. And technically, this is definitely still 'following the rules.'

Which Foster is, himself, actually abiding by. For a variety of reasons.

But it's a 'letter' of the law kind of obedience, not a 'spirit of the law' one at all.

And 'if' Sans asks about it, Ginko?


We do know what it likes.

[His tone implies their advantage.]

....and he doesn't.

[That's quite an assumption you're making, Ginko.

But far be it from him to disabuse you of that notion now.

... I'll see you there.

[personal profile] dorkypantsuit 2017-09-04 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
What is it?

[personal profile] dorkypantsuit 2017-09-12 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
[He sighs, hesitating, not even sure how to explain. The problem is he doesn't even fully understand why he's so mad.]

..He's just going to scare them.
dorkypantsuit: (--v)

Everything that's happened in my entire life up to this point.

[He hesitates there, not because he doesn't know what to say, but because the possible responses are too numerous. It's not just one thing, it's everything, the culmination of every experience leading him to this one single conclusion: if there was something he truly cared about eventually he would lose it. He can never succeed, even when it matters most. He saw it every night in his dreams. In the worlds they visited he heard it in the screams of the soon to be deceased, voices no one else could here. He had knowledge, but it never helped.

These fae felt so much like the highbloods back home. If you could even manage to knock one down, another would simply come take it's place. The weak existed to be used by the strong, as long as one person believed that the fight would never end. It was like fighting time, as useless as it was nonsensical.

He doesn't want Ginko to know these parts of him. And yet he must explain.]

...If you know a storm is coming, can you stop it before it strikes?

That's what fae are compared to us. Hard to predict, impossible to stop. You can't beat them into submission. You can't reason with them using your words.

We are beneath them.

And it will always be that way, as long as they exist.
dorkypantsuit: (-vii)

no dialogue okay?

[personal profile] dorkypantsuit 2017-09-23 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
[He holds the radio, listening in the silence the talk button unpressed. He can't disagree with what Ginko's said. He doesn't want to. He wants Ginko to 'win' this argument between them, but his feelings have never paid attention to what he wants. He's scared. He's always scared, and now he feels alone. Acknowledging this threat feels so much more terrifying than it should. There's a part of his mind telling him he'll ruin everything and another part that doesn't understand how he's even supposed to live with this threat hanging over their heads. He honestly doesn't know what to do.]

[He laughs again, his voice sounding waterlogged and he takes in a shaky breath when he's done.]

Do you know what they do to psionics that disobey on Alternia?
