home wrecks!

WHO: Doc Brown, any and all residents of De Chima 03, and any and all visitors!
WHERE: De Chima 03
WHEN: Various days mid-March
WHAT: House parties, science shop-talk, friendship, awkward negotiations
WARNINGS: None so far!

[It's remarkable how this odd place is starting to feel like home. Doc is still negotiating storage space for a growing hoard of spare parts, largely confined to his bedroom, and he's still coming home in a disco suit at odd hours of the night, but he's content here. Especially now that his best friend is just one house down.

There's always something strange going on here, whether it's a visit, a night of reading, or a small party in the living room. And he wouldn't have it any other way.]

((feel free to PM me for a starter or add your own!))

[Komasan can't even remember the last time he spent the night at his actual house. It was probably his first day in the states, where he cried himself to sleep because his feet were weird and also he was kidnapped. Boy have times changed, because right now he's willingly dealing with his weird feet like it's no big deal, mostly because he can't rock his amazing pajamas as a dog. Pajamas he totally stole from Maya, but details.

Because he has to be the most obnoxious person here, he'll eventually slam down a box of the board game "Dream Phone" for all to see, eager to get this trainwreck going.]

I saw this game at the store and it made me think of my brother, zura.

[Yes, the box with the 90s style girls on it made him think of his brother. Look, the guy is always on his phone and- ]

...I can't read any of this, zura.

[Komasan has to stop and think about that one.]

...Well, he did have a human girlfriend for a little while, zura...

[So. Probably.]

But, a-ah, I kinda bought it for the phone... [His cheeks flush pink a little as he begins to scratch his cheeks.] I-I didn't know pretty women were involved, z-zura...
monge: (🍦|| [Human] o:)

[personal profile] monge 2016-03-23 02:49 pm (UTC)(link)
No no no, I wanted a game that plays with a phone, zura!

[The game part is important, Doc!]

Ah...but...could you really do that, zura?
monge: (🍦|| [Human] M-Monge...)

[personal profile] monge 2016-03-26 01:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[Trust him, Doc. He do.]

Monge~! Brad might like me, zura?!

[With hope in his eyes, Komasan grabs the top of the box and flings it across the room. Hopefully no one was standing in the line of fire.]

[So that's Komasan's human form... this may actually be the first time Qubit's seen it.

Buuut any and all such observations come to a screeching halt when the board game comes out. Good grief, kid, what store did you even find this at? Is there an awful-board-games-from-the-early-90s store? I mean, not that Qubit has ever heard of this particular game, but it looks awful and it looks early-90s. He grimaces at the box.]

Komasan, I'm reasonably sure we're not that game's target demographic.
monge: (🍦|| [Human] tfw you're tall zura)

[personal profile] monge 2016-03-23 02:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[One day he'll have to show Qubit the wonders of the thrift store. Where garbage becomes treasure.]

Sure we are! It's a board game, and we're bored, zura!

[It made sense to him, anyway!]

See, look? Look at the ages, zura! [He points to the "9 and Up" that reads on the box. By some sort of miracle, he can read that much.] We're the "up," zura.
superposition: ((i told you so))

[personal profile] superposition 2016-03-25 09:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Well - yes, we are, but -

No one here is nine, are they? It's "nine and up," not "nine or up."

[aww yiss, being a pedantic asshole finally pays off.]
monge: (🍦|| [Human] zura)

[personal profile] monge 2016-03-28 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
...What's the difference, zura?

[Sadly being a pedantic asshole doesn't pay off if the person you're being an asshole to is completely oblivious to any assholishness.]

[Foiled again :'D Qubit pauses for a sec - he's a computer engineer, asking him to differentiate between "and" and "or" is like asking a normal person to explain "up" and "down." And much as in that case, he kind of can't believe this is something that would need explaining ever.]

Uh - well, "and" is inclusive. For an "and" statement to be true, both arguments have to be true. Whereas with "or," it's one or both arguments.

["Or both," he can work with that! Komasan isn't about to give up hope just yet!]

Then all we have to do is find a nine year old who will play with us, zura!

[personal profile] superposition 2016-03-29 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay this excuse is rapidly getting out of hand. He could keep rolling with it, but at this point it's almost not worth it. But geez, how do you tell someone like Komasan "in reality I just don't want to play because I think it looks stupid"?

He may not have thought this through.]

Or alternatively we could just play something else.
monge: (🍦|| [Human] Everything is smiles zura)

[personal profile] monge 2016-03-29 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
Mm...yeah, I guess we can do that too, zura. Let's see...

[Well it looks like he gave up hope after all. Either that, or he simply believes they can play the game later. Regardless, he doesn't seem upset at all as he looks through the other games he managed to grab during his thrift store adventures. Gotta pick that perfect one.]

Monge~! This one looks pretty fun, zura!

[In which he holds up the box for Qubit to marvel at.

Go on. Marvel.]
superposition: (But no more apologies)

[personal profile] superposition 2016-03-29 04:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[Qubit just. stares. I guess that could be mistaken for marveling, if you ignore the involuntary curling of his lip at it. Finally he looks up at Komasan and solemnly shakes his head.]

No. Just... no.

[You gotta draw a fucking line in the sand, dude. You gotta make a statement. You gotta look inside yourself and say, "What am I willing to put up with today?" Not fucking this.]
