The Dog Days of Summer

WHO: Komasan + YOU!
WHERE: De Chima 003
WHEN: Sunday May 15th, after "New Capes on the Block" finishes
WHAT: It's Dog Day! ...Except not really. Komasan's throwing a party to celebrate the wonders of dogs. (Sorry roomies)
WARNINGS: None I can think of, will add some if things change

[Early Sunday morning, imPorts all over the country will be receiving a very...excitable text message.]



!!HAPPY DOG DAY!!
You and your dog are invited to celebrate DOG DAY at De Chima's house 003 this evening for fun, snacks, and plenty of games of fetch! Everyone is encouraged to bring their four-legged friend for one big doggy playdate! Please come around back into the yard and please avoid the shed.

♥Komasan


[Considering the formatting and lack of horrible spelling and grammar, Komasan probably got help writing this out.]

- ONCE YOU ARRIVE -

[Should people choose to head over to this made up holiday celebration, guests will be greeted to Komasan's decked out backyard that may or may not have had to be cleaned up after random acts of science. Most of the decorations are the sort of things you'd expect from a children's birthday party, like balloons or cheap streamers with pictures of dogs on them. It's Komasan, what were you expecting?

So what can you do at a party like this?!]


[PREPARATIONS]

[For those who may have wanted to come early and help Komasan set up, he'll be found in his kitchen baking a good number of cakes. Baking a cake is no problem, but he never realized how hard it is to make so many in a short time. Not only does he have to account for people's variety of tastes, but he also has to set up dog-safe pastries for his canine brethren.

If you do decide to help in this noble task, he'll be in human form for optimal can-actually-reach-stuff-on-the-counters height, so uh...surprise to anyone who hasn't seen that before. Just be sure to knock first before entering, Qubit's security system is...well, let's just say good.]



[SNACKS]

[The snack table may be decorated in tacky dollar store decorations, but it's large and has a good number of delicious treats for people to snack on while they mingle. As mentioned earlier, there's different flavors of cakes as well as small plates of dog-friendly snacks for your pets, as well as a variety of simple finger foods for you to choose from.

Best of all, there's a bunch of different ice creams in a cooler set up to the side, all cartons Komasan brought from his job as an "unusual ice cream flavor designer." So among the classic chocolates and vanillas, people may find interesting flavors such as "cucumber lime," or "bubble tea," or one that's simply labeled "space."]



[THE YARD]

[The main celebration, the yard is large enough for everyone's pet to run around and play in. There will be a good number of toys, a tiny baby pool filled with shallow water for dogs to splash in, and a single box. It's literally just a box. There's only so much Komasan can afford, okay?

Although Komasan is a little too sentient to be frolicking with the rest of them, guests may spot his weird pet roomba rolling around in the yard, chasing after balls. How it's not getting its tires caught in the grass is anyone's guess.

If someone's dog can't play nice with others or misbehaves too much (Seriously, he's really trusting you guys with that snack table open around so many animals), they'll be put in doggy time out in a little pen off to the side.]



[CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE]

[The main focus of the party is, of course, the dogs, but other things are bound to come up.]




[[ooc: This is a mingle style log, so feel free to tag around! Komasan will try his hardest to greet anyone who shows up. The text he sends in the morning is a mass text, so your character didn't have to ICly talk to him during his post or even know him to be invited! Other pets are welcomed as well.]]

Setting Up

[Kel hadn't expected to be bringing more than two dogs, really. Perhaps Cardinal, with Lucy's permission and Hawke's Dane. She had not counted on Hawke herself, now she was helping corral five or six (they kept moving) shelter dogs into a pen with a sign reading'ADOPT A DOG FOR DOG DAY' hanging on the side.

Oh well, it was for a good cause]


Snacks

[Kel would be sampling the ice cream except she's staring at the cake in front of her.]

It seems such a shame to cut it...

The Yard

[Usually boxes are more exciting for cats, but THIS one is popular enough that two of the shelter dogs are trying to play tug of war with it as Cardinal barks at both of them because HE fits and HE is sits. Come help a knight out with pulling them apart?]

Wildcard

choose your own!

[Kel grips a terrier's collar and makes him sit....yes good dog, before looking up at Komasan]

So the things you are preparing stay prepared before other people get here.

[At some point during setup, Qubit decides to check on how they're doing in the yard... and spots the sign and enclosure and pack of dogs. He sighs as he approaches, rubbing one of his temples with an expression midway between amusement and exasperation.]

What do you know, yet another thing Komasan conveniently forgot to mention. Color me surprised. [He is not surprised in the least.]

[a; preparations
[Ken and Koromaru arrive early to the party to help prepare, of course. Komasan is a good friend, and Koromaru insisted. Ken wasn't about to say no to a party where he could help Koromaru socialize, and he wouldn't dare attend a party after not helping when he could! So he's here, not to help cook because he'll only end up burning himself, but doing his best with his shortstuff reach to set up streamers and lay out various treats for all the canine guests. At one point, though, even his stepladder is unable to reach one corner so he turns to whoever is nearest and points to a deck brush that... he brought..]


Can you grab me that brush, please?

[b; the yard
[Koromaru is not as excitable as a puppy, but he is delighted to be at this party! He got Ken to bring out a bunch of tennis balls for the dogs to play with and chase after, which he's up to sharing and immediately tosses out on the grass. But what he's going for is the pool first -- he jumps in and immediately jumps back out to run up to Ken -- and YOU, if you happen to be too close -- and shake off all that water all over. Feel free to either take pity on the tween or be soaked with him.]
amadaman: ((p3) 118)

[personal profile] amadaman 2016-05-22 05:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ken takes the brush with a thanks, but he shakes his head.]

I'm not scrubbing anything. Just watch.

[Instead, he attaches one part of the streamer loosely to the back end of the brush with tape. On the other side is another piece, larger and more firmly pressed on. Then he reaches over with the brush to push the streamer against the wall where he couldn't reach earlier.]

Yard

[Aerith doesn't have a dog, but she does love one particular yokai dog here and she's not about to disappoint him on his big day. She'd made it there as fast as she could, and even brought a few flower arrangements with her, of primarily daisies and other flowers that would be safe for dogs to eat. Not that they should, but accidents happen, and she's prepared.

She's happy lounging around the yard, watching the other people and their dogs. In fact, she's very obviously into it, and even dressed up for the occasion.]


Snacks

[Not much to say here, just that Aerith's had two scoops of "space" ice cream, and she can be spotted going for a third.]

a. inappropriate invention testing

[As a long time professional dog lover and friend of Komasan, Doc's had a slight hand in planning the day. Some of the toys are of his own invention: for example, the remote control disco ball currently taunting one of the pups.

He pushes a button when the poor pup has had enough and it dispenses treats.]


Good boy! Excellent, excellent, enjoy...

[He's having a blast playing with them.]

b. ice cream
He's making some interesting faces at the snack table.]

...Space? What's in this concoction?

[He licks his lips, seemingly content, and digs in.]

c. afterparty (for Komasan)

[Day is done. Gone the dogs, and the sun. Save for one.

It's a huge mess out there. Doc's going to be exhausted when he's finished cleaning this up. But none of that matters, because he's here for a good friend of his. And he's not quite done yet.

He approaches Komasan with his hands folded behind his back, grinning widely.]


I'd say the party was a resounding success.

[That morning]

[Ah, Sunday. A nice, quiet day off. (Well... quiet is relative, but Kepler and Christmas are behaving a little for once, so.) Qubit's just settled in with some coffee and going over recent news and data when he gets a message from Komasan. Which... is a little weird since he's literally like two rooms away, but he goes ahead and checks it, and...

Oh, GΓΈd. Seriously? He turns around and calls into the hallway-]
Komasan!

[One way or another, it's too early for this.]

[Preparations]

[Somehow, though, you just know he's going to get roped into helping with this. Largely in the kitchen, but he can lend a hand as needed elsewhere as well. Feel free to pester him.]

[The Yard]

[Despite what you might think about engineers and cats, Qubit's very much a dog person. He'll even field a round of Fetch every now and again. However, the puppies in residence - four months old and still getting bigger every day - are not very good at Fetch. They sort of do whatever they feel like, and will sometimes even run off with the ball while other dogs are trying to fetch it. Christmas, the girl, is a little better at playing with others, but little boy Kepler is keen on proving he's top dog in this house. Neither of them is particularly well-trained - Doc's been making a valiant attempt, but they've still barely got the hang of Sit. So, uh, sorry for them in advance.

Qubit spends more of the evening socializing with guests (and their dogs) over the course of the evening. Dogs are great conversation starters, after all.]


So who's this? [- he asks, crouching (if needed) to try and pet them.]

[ Kel may have helped her set up, but, ultimately, babysitting the criminal dogs dogs from the shelter is up to Hawke and it's something she can do without so much as breaking a sweat. Once she's there, they don't stray much from her, even with the pen for them open! For that matter, dogs not from the shelter seem to flock towards her, too.

It's only a matter of time before she's stuck playing yet another massive round of fetch, where she throws a tennis ball and an entire mass of dogs go chasing off after it. Such is the life of a literal dog lord...

The one dog that doesn't go running off is the giant fuzzball known as Dane. He remains flopped in the grass by her, happily watching.
]

...I'm beginning to think this game is never going to end, Dane. [ She says to the mastiff mix, who, in turn, just woofs back at her. ] Right. Glad we agree, then.

[ And even though the dogs are off chasing the ball, the pen behind her is indeed adorned with a sign that states they have dogs from the De Chima shelter there, along with names and pictures and little blurbs of information on them. ]

( OOC note: one of Hawke's Porter-granted powers is Dog Lord! Dogs really, really, really like hanging out with her and occasionally listen to her, but that part is highly optional and rare. )

Bruce Banner Β» open!

[personal profile] hyperkinesia 2016-05-18 11:16 am (UTC)(link)
Β» PREPARATIONS

[ Bruce doesn't need to knock, actually, so there's that. Being the most recent resident to join DC003, he's yet to really talk to all his housemates, even if he's already seen all of them around and greeted them, briefly as it may have been. Point is, he has free pass to walk into the kitchen, looking around curiously when the smell of fresh bakes hits his nose, making his way over to the counter where some small biscuits are cooling off. ]

Smells good. [ Never mind they're dog treats. Hey, Bruce's probably had a lot worse than that to eat in the past, so. ]


Β» THE YARD

[ There is no party like a dog party. And Bruce isn't even the party type, but he seriously wouldn't mind going to ones like this every so often. Not that he has anything against people, honestly, but between being in the middle of a crowd or being surrounded by furry buddies, he'll take the latter in a heartbeat.

So he might be a little more reserved at first, keeping mostly to himself, and you may just catch him while he sits by himself and nibbles on a snack and pets the random puppy coming by for a treat. Later on, though, don't be surprised to find the physicist in his forties sitting on the grass surrounded by a bunch of dogs all asking for pets, trying to climb onto his lap or looking around for treats in his pockets. (Spoilers: he definitely has treats in his pockets.)

Despite what it may seem, he looks as happy as can be, even with the odd face he pulls every so often when one of his slobbery friends licks his face. ]
