    Presents for Pupa Pan and Sheepie Troll

    Post by Zurg on Tue Jan 14, 2014 3:18 am

    Time: Afternoon
    Date: The Holiday (December 25th)




    It had been quite a while since the monarch had last been out to Portal Breach's coastline. Funny, it was strangely farther away than he remembered...

    Be as that may, however, Zurg wasn't going to leave this cold, blustery area until his delivery had been finished. No matter how bitter the wind and how dreary the clouds high above, he was not. It was a bit of a stretch to assume that the monarch would walk across the damp sand, though. He wisely chose to hover above the coast on a radiant hexagon, its surface flat and prismatic. That was science and technology for you. Now, onward to the Alternian's hive. It was still out here despite most of them having since left, right?

    Right! There was no mistaking its... odd and slightly OCD-aggravating design anywhere, and Zurg directed his friend in that direction. "Chin up, X'ki. We're just going to drop off a few cookies and be on our merry way. You won't be withstanding the sea salt much longer," he reassured. An irritated chime was the construct's answer but when was that any different? The monarch playfully rolled his eyes and pointed straight ahead. Within moments the otherworldly duo had arrived, although Zurg had no real intention of stepping foot inside the Alternian's fortress. It was a delivery, after all! Rather, the monarch glanced around for what he assumed to be a front door and he directed his friend to float toward it. The area in question could very well be a refuse hatch but here's hoping it wasn't.

    Naturally the Alternians were either asleep (as they were nocturnal) or they were busy, so he didn't ring the doorbell and disturb them. Zurg simply withdrew a basket from the confines of his robes, seemingly without an end to them, and he placed it gently on the ground. Inside it was a handful of gingerbread cookies, a wide assortment of edible figures for the Alternians to snack. It was insensitive to make all the trolls, so he made just the two: Aradia and Eridan. Zurg had also made a handful of sheep and... he was guessing Eridan was a sea-dweller, so he made a random collage of oceanic life.

    Octopuses, seahorses, fishes and sharks... Innocent things like that. Oh, and a note!

      Dear Aradia and Eridan,

      I know we're not very close, but here are some cookies for you to enjoy. No, they are not poisoned and I am positive you can eat them without suffering from a severe allergic reaction. This is just my way of wishing you a happy, stress-free Holiday.

      Cheers!

      --Z

      PS: If you look real closely and squint, you can see that I added Eridan's underwear on his cookie.

    Who said baking didn't have to be fun? Finished here and extremely pleased, the monarch dusted his hands and floated off. Onward to the last and final stop for the day!

    Huh... Eridan looked down at the ground. There was a basket. What was in this basket? It wasn't anything deadly. Eridan wasn't the Karkat that had been here, he wasn't terrified of being attacked by everything, despite what he'd been through. He'd seen a lot of the Breach, and had only pissed off Jar Mar and his little weasel friend, if Bloodscream's naming was anything to go by. Even then, he highly doubted Jak and Daxter were competent enough to leave a gift that was poisoned or anything like that. Besides, Jak wouldn't want to run the risk of Aradia dying, since he "loved" her and all. He'd looked it up online, and apparently humans considered it "pedophilia". And that was only one of the few reasons he thought they'd be stupid to fill a quadrant together.

    "wwell wwhat the fucks this" He picked up the basket, eyeing the note that hadn't blown away in the wind. Good going, Zurg. That wind was vicious, to protect a note from it you had to either be seriously lucky to have put it here on a windless day, or have altered the note to be a very heavy note. Naturally, it was assumed to be the former. The latter was likely incredibly possible, though, judging by what Eridan had heard about Zurg. He'd originally been told to keep away, but Zurg wasn't a bad person. He figured that out even more as he read the note.

    "wwell i havve twwo fuckin expressions for him wwhen i next see him" Eridan looked down with a deadpan expression. It brightened up when he SAW the cookies, though. "oh wwoww" These looked absolutely wonderful... Zurg must have put a lot of effort into them to make them come out like that! "ARA ARA THERES SOMETHIN FOR YOU" Laharl was out, and Flonne was too busy watching anime to care. Prime time to call Aradia without cookies being stolen and eaten.

    But, he tore off the P.S. but of the note just in case, and pocketed it. NICE TRY, ZIGGLES.

    Aradia Megido took a bit longer than her little merdouche to wake up and smell the roses. She followed suit as soon as she heard Eridan's (obnoxiously) loud footsteps, each one making a distinct punctuated Thud!. While it was the afternoon, afternoon became the evening extremely easily in the winter, so it was obvious that Aradia and Eridan would need to be top-notch early night risers to accomplish the most wonderful things they ever were to do.

    While she had admitted done some stupid things, she couldn't exactly pinpoint it because of "love". She didn't really understand it well enough aside from the basics, and her relationship with Sollux was something that she'd rather leave out of it. The two of them didn't need to get something as special involved with really messy (and gross) things they had barely touched upon prior to anything else. She didn't need any quadrants to be filled. Laharl and Flonne and Eridan aren't exactly the type of people you could fill quadrants with. Most of her friends were incompatible with it. She was incompatible with it, and Jak certainly was too. He was a fool for sure, and Aradia herself couldn't quite put her thumb on why he was her friend. And for the first few days she met him--all he served to do was confuse her and turn her life upside down.

    But enough about that. There were lots of nice people and events and gifts and blessings to rejoice, even if they were quite naturally eccentric to say in the least. She herself admitted that she was unique too and everyone else she knew. They all had their own merits to extol or love and their own atrocities to fear or scorn. Including her and Eridan and everyone else. Zurg too! Look at him flee after delivering a nice basket! To be honest though, she didn't really see it until Eridan began to yell at the top of his lungs about it. That was quite annoying but sweet because he didn't steal any.

    She saw him look at the cookies as she crept downstairs quietly without him noticing. And just as furtively, she observed him speak aside while tearing off a piece of paper. and call for her. Instantly, the ram troll reported for duty and took him quite literally. The Aquarius troll would never have a chance to defend himself. She took the basket of cookies with her telekinesis and examined them quite thoroughly as well as the torn piece of paper. The sheep and aquatic animals were beautifully made and she had to give thanks to the cook, so gratefully, she ate nearly all of the aquatic animal cookies, spotting metallic flashes of sparkly sprinklers of very noticeable colors, in the shape of Eridan's boxers. Giggling, she munched and indulged in all of the sea creatures but left one cookie for him. She exchanged that for a sweet little sugary lamb she took a bit out of.

    "hey eridan *munch munch* this is delici0us! we sh0uld thank zurg!" She read the letter, related it to the torn off piece and smiled brightly at the mertroll with vicious glee before handing him a golden orange starfish with an ever so prominent edible replica of his fishie undies.

    Were you serious...?! Were you actually kidding him right now?! Eridan could do naught but watch as all his goodwill and his hiding of the note had been in nothing but vain - Aradia had come down and stolen the cookies and the note, reading it and inspecting the cookies in front of his very eyes as he watched her find the one with his fish boxers, and then he watched her snarf down all cookies but that one, to his knowledge. Some twelfth perigee present that was meant to be, you ram-like knob!

    "wwhat the FUCK ARA I WWAS SAVVIN THEM OUTTA GOODWWILL AN YOU ATE THE FUCKIN LOT EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE" Eridan flipped. He looked down at the cookie, hardly caring for the fish boxers anymore. "I DIDNT EVVEN GET TO SEE WWHAT HALF A THE FUCKIN COOKIES LOOKED LIKE" He... actually looked visibly upset by this. "yknoww wwere not on alternia anymore ara in case it hasnt fuckin gotten through its not do anythin you can to survvivve theres no fuckin reason to just take evverythin like that that just makes you an asshole"

    "i guess theyre just fuckin cookies though evven though i guess i wwas lookin forwward to some a them" He looked down at the cookie he was holding, upon which he ate the cookie he was holding. "aww an they wwere fuckin nice too thats not fair ara" Wweh you do this. As bad as the people that made you look away from your food with a false claim "oh! look at that!" to take your food, you were.

    "i understand jokin ara but cmon you ate all a them but one"
