    Love, romance. Amore. Soon would be the day of Valentine, a very important holiday for couples. For your average single Sally and Saul though? Hope you enjoy chocolates! Indeed, the very sight of paper hearts and lovey dovey couples got something of a dirty look from the crimson Cybertronian walking down the sidewalk. Sure, nobody was doing much more than a bit of hand holding, but ugh. Knock Out knew what came after the hand clasping and he wanted no part in that, thank you! Oh sure, the idea of a relationship did appeal to the narcissistic robot. Somebody who would tell Knock Out that he was amazing, the most handsome piece of aft in this entire dimension! In any dimension! Somebody who would help him buff the areas he couldn't reach himself, who'd do whatever he asked of them with a smile and devotion in their eyes. Who could say no to that?!

    Of course, love was supposed to go both ways... And honestly, loving himself was already a full time job! The former medic doubted that he had any time to spare attempting to do the same for somebody else. A companion would fill a certain void Knock Out felt, but would it be worth it? All of that extra time and attention that would take away from himself? And, Primus FORBID any Sparklings somehow come about! The very idea was basically impossible without the Allspark, but in a world like Portal Breach anything was possible. And this handsome mech was not going to drop everything to stay home and be a nursemaid. Absolutely awful.

    Which meant, of course, the next best use for this holiday was for Knock Out to capitalize on it! Standing dutifully before the bulletin board, the shiny mech unraveled his poster with a bit of flair in his wrists. Tacks were squeezed into every corner and through the laminated paper into the cork on the other side. Digits flattened against the flyer to smooth out any bubbles of air before the mech took a step back to appraise his advertisement. Reminders for this holiday were all around, whether they came in the form of people on the sidewalks or even at his own place of work. Spenst and his girlfriend were alright, definitely no trouble there. As long as Olabisi bought a concession or two, and the ghost alien kept his eyes on his work, then the former medic had no qualms about the mummy keeping him company at the Drive-In. Actually, seeing the two of them had given him the idea for this weekend's little marathon! With so many couples on the Breach, surely they'd sniff out this bait like hungry piranhas. Sappy romance movies that were sure to make them happy. And make Knock Out happy with the profits! A win-win! Clasping his servoes together with a grin, he turned, leaving the sign to do its job and attract attention for the weekend.

    We will be showing When Harry Met Sally, Titantic, The Princess Bride, Beauty and the Beast, Meet Joe Black and Valentine's Day!

    ((OOC note: This Friday I shall write an opening post in the Drive-In area setting up the scene. This thread will be open for anyone who wants to join during the first night of the marathon, and threads are welcome for anyone who wants to go see the other movies. The showtime schedule for these movies are:

    • Friday February 10th, When Harry Met Sally and Titantic. When Harry Met Sally starts at 8. After it finishes, a small short film will be played during the intermission to pass the time, allowing a break for concession and bathroom stops. Then, Titanic will start.
    • Saturday February 11th, The Princess Bride and Beauty and the Beast. The Princess Bride starts at 8. The rest of the details are the same as above.
    • Sunday February 12th, Meet Joe Black and Valentine's day. Meet Joe Black starts at 8. The rest of the details are the same as above.
