Bloblings have noticed mysterious, gooey bloblings popping up in the world. Many bloblings are weary of them because of their resemblance to the tar from the tar pits, which have been known to eat bloblings for something called 'breakfast'.
01/10/23 Hey there!
It's October now!
We've updated the Art Prompts and Writing Prompts with some new stuff for October, as ever. It's spoooooOOOOoopy season now, and our prompts have been updated appropriately! Go take a look.
It's going to be a Bleeding Season this month! New droplets will be being born at the end of next month. Get thinking about what kinds of bloblings you want to stick into some bleeds, because the Season will be releasing within the first week of the month!
We have some fun things planned for this month, but we'll be sort of sprinkling them throughout. We hope you'll like them!
Our Discord server is invite only. Please DM Ichor or Saerfall after you've submitted your blobling claim form, and we'll send you an invite link. We spend most of our time on our Discord, so if it seems quiet here, we're probably all sequestered away in our server.
Hai was silently sitting as the Friendzy debacle underwent, keeping an eye on Aki who was luckily focused on writing her book for now. Caspen was securely seated next them on one of the many plush pillows on the library, still occasionally attempting to move their new limbs. Hai's heart couldn't help but soften a little at seeing the yellow blob deflate a little upon Evrah's rejection and so began pushing some of the poffdula he and Aki had collected towards the bear. He wasn't sure if they had one of every flavor but they had grabbed as many colors as they could.
"Casspen...do you know what flavorss they are? We can try them if you want..." They had mentioned they were hungry, and apparently the purple one was recommended so Hai tried, with great difficulty, to open some of the poffdula pods. Unfortunately he still had no limbs and, glancing back at Aki, he was afraid if he broke her focus she'd check Friendzy. So Hai smiled somewhat sheepishly, rolling the pods closer to Caspen and said, "I am afraid I cannot open them..."
Aki walked over and sat at a table in the library. "Let's sit here!" she said excitedly. They had gone out and gathered up paper, quils, and ink before, and she was ready to write. She began brainstorming for what her book should be about. "So I want it to be... now whats the word... Not real? Like its... Something i made up!" she said. "Oh um, sorry, did i interupt you...?" she said quietly. "Well, amyways... as for the story and what the characters would be? ...im not sure. Maybe it could have a creature that like... exists in another world.got any ideas?" she asked, looking towards Hai. Suddenly she noticed something through frienzy. Kip was... making a strange noise? Was he hurt? Aki tried to ignore it at first, but she heard them mention the ink. She was intriged and joined in, while also asking if he was okay, but Hai quickly changed the subject, which greatly confused Aki. FRIENDZY LOG
((about 30 minutes or so after Kip left the arena)) KipToMyLou ...ah...hah...holy :Kip_Bleep:
for a minute or two, messages from Kip started appearing in the Fools private Friendzy. The text seemed like groaning/moaning, with a *rather* suggestive subtext to any blobs familiar with that sort of thing. No response would be given if replied to, and the messages stop within a minute or two. Hai-lo Does anyone know how to delete someone else's message.
CaspenAspen What's happening? Is he hurt
Hai-lo I doubt it. I suppose we can check. @kiptomylou please control yourself. Hai-lo Let us focus on your new legs for now Caspen. Can you help me make sure Aki doesn't check Friendzy in the mean time?
CaspenAspen Uh Okay I figured out how to grasp things,, And I can shuffle a little
The Inquisistar And look at those trees... I have never seen one like that befo....... Hey Kip can you be quiet? I am trying to ask questions about this weird looking tree........
4EvrahAndEvrah Yes. They. Seem. To. Only. Be. Native. To. Onyxia.
CaspenAspen Which tree? Poffdula?
Hai-lo Perhaps the papyrills. The paper and pen trees. Hai-lo That is good progress by the way. Every little bit counts Caspen.
The Inquisistar Oh is that what its called. The Inquisistar Wait. Now it has 2 names?
CaspenAspen Poffdula is the rainbow one That tastes good
CaspenAspen Uh Can someone please clarify for me ,,, What is going on
4EvrahAndEvrah Star and I are walking in the park.
CaspenAspen Can I Try to come with you,, I still really need experience with moving CaspenAspen Not to mention I'm hungry
4EvrahAndEvrah Please don't. Ever.
Hai-lo Aki and I grabbed a few pods for ink, some of them aren't open yet. Do you know which one you prefer?
CaspenAspen ,,, ,,oh okay
The Inquisistar I don't see any rainbow trees here. Just those other trees. .................... ................... ................... Oh. The leaves come off and there are pointy sticks .................... .................... .................... Oh that is soooo cool. Hey Evrah did you see what this can do!
4EvrahAndEvrah ...Show me.
The Inquisistar See, You take this stick and putting against the white leaf and it leaves a mark. ...................... ..................... ..................... I wonder if this will mark on different things...........
CaspenAspen There should be at least 2 or 3 in there Somewhere CaspenAspen You can dip the sticks in the tasty dye to make it colorful,,
Akitty These dye things are edible? Cool! Oh, uh, also, is Kip okay...?
CaspenAspen nobody will tell me
Hai-lo AKI PLEASE CONTINUE WRITING YOUR BOOK
Akitty I am very confused- O-okay
CaspenAspen You and me both What are you writing about
Hai-lo WE CAN ALL EAT SOME OF THE POFFDULAS RIGHT NOW.
The Inquisistar Oh it does work. Look Evrah. I drew a lion. This is like those fire sticks that Yume gave me once. And I drew glowing lions all over the place. The Inquisistar The pen stopped working. Maybe if I gave it a good shake......... ........................... .......................... ........................... oops. The Inquisistar I can fix it for you so it looks cool Evrah, Like what Kip has.
4EvrahAndEvrah It's fine i- Evrah has logged out
CaspenAspen I don't understand! please tell me what's happening Is kip dead or something What did he do
Hai-lo Hm... Hai-lo You do not need to worry about Kip's safety. Hai-lo We will probably see him in a while.
Akitty I'm jusst gonna... get back to writing my book. Akitty has logged off
CaspenAspen I was rolling to the library,, and then I sprouted the things you have I'm touching the ground,, but I'm not on the ground CaspenAspen How do I move If I'm not eating dirt every couple seconds
4EvrahAndEvrah If you miss it, you can still shove your face into the ground.
CaspenAspen That is true but I'm just Stuck in one place What do I do
Akitty You have legs like me? You have grown!! Its a good feeling right, not being so close to the ground? Akitty Oh um You kinda just Move your legss, back and forth like... hm. This is hard to explain.
CaspenAspen Uh It's interesting to say the least The view from 'up' here is nice but it would probably be better if I could see it from different angles
4EvrahAndEvrah If you have knees bend them to avoid looking stupid and.... do you have no head?
CaspenAspen I think I do CaspenAspen My face seems,, longer
4EvrahAndEvrah ............ then you ......... should be able to turn it....... 4EvrahAndEvrah You're standing somewhere in the middle of the road stock still in everyone's way aren't you?
CaspenAspen ,,,, ,,Yeah
4EvrahAndEvrah ..................... ..................... ..................... Have you attempted to move yet?
CaspenAspen I don't know how to How do I ambulate I'm gonna think really hard about it When your body is constantly moving, changing position like rolling and then you move your 'head' but don't go forward it's A wild time
4EvrahAndEvrah I can't say I can relate. Have you managed to move yet or are you still inconveniencing others?
CaspenAspen Uh ,,, They're going around me,, most of them
4EvrahAndEvrah So you intend to live there now?
CaspenAspen I don't know How do you use your 'legs'
Lulliaby ..it's..... not that hard Lulliaby You're having an almost impressively difficult time of doing this.
4EvrahAndEvrah Try, the worst that can happen is that you taste the dirt you miss so much
CaspenAspen I am staring at the library And practically yelling 'go' My head is whipping around really fast and it's not working
Akitty Walking just kind of came naturally for me? I mean, it took some getting used to, but its wasnt too difficult. But dont feel bad! You'll get it eventually! You dont move your head, you move those appendages on your body.
Hai-lo You could attempt rolling your entire body
CaspenAspen AGHH CaspenAspen I tried to roll my appendages and I fell face first on the ground
CaspenAspen Wait I can roll from here maybe
Hai-lo One can continue to roll despite having limbs. Hai-lo Good luck Caspen. I hope you get control of those limbs soon. Hai-lo Actually I can see you from one of the windows Hai-lo That looks like it hurts...........are you ok???
CaspenAspen My 'head' keeps getting in the way This is a horrible method of transportation
Hai-lo ... Hai-lo I will come out and help you.
4EvrahAndEvrah ....... are you.... Do you know.... if you're much bigger than you were?
Hai-lo They...are...bigger… Hai-lo ...heavier… Hai-lo ...still very yellow but inside the library now. Hai-lo You hit yourself on a lot of surfaces Caspen. Are you alright?
CaspenAspen OHOHHHHH The bruises are from something else I'm good :3 CaspenAspen That was a bad experience I'll practice with my 'legs' so that doesn't happen again,,
The Inquisistar Hey whats going on? The Inquisistar What's wrong with your legs?
4EvrahAndEvrah He has them.
The Inquisistar He has legs! That is so cool. Did he get longer legs then me? But what is happening? Why does he need to practice?
4EvrahAndEvrah I doubt it'll matter if they are longer. At least if he can't figure out how to use them. 4EvrahAndEvrah And that's why he needs to practice...
CaspenAspen I don't understand how all of you just Took to them
Lulliaby Well, I think Evrah was born with them, and they're also just not that hard to use.
The inquisistar I remember having to practice. I was out in the everlasting sands though so falling didn't hurt as much. My legs are so short that I can't run very fast in them and I tend to have to bounce...... But don't bounce to high here or you will hit your head!
After an impromptu, unsuccessful attempt at movement for Caspen and strength training for Hai, they felt a deep connection to the group. It was almost as if nothing had happened, nothing had passed between them. Let this be rewritten as the first time we met, they chuckled in their head. Even Evrah seemed to be in a joking, sarcastic mood. Although hopelessly marooned on a pillow, Caspen wanted nothing more than to carefully walk the grandiose halls of the library, feeding off of the creativity other blobs had put down on Papyrills. Restlessly flicking their feet, They imagined what the covers looked like, how the stories within would unfold. Come on, legs. Everything was good, positive, hopeful, until whatever happened with Kip was made known.
When the first message was sent out, the splinters shattered across the group revealed themselves. Caspen and Aki were the only ones who were worried and confused, but were refused an answer. Hai and Star seemed strange and dismissive, and it was unclear why. They seemed hellbent on hiding whatever had happened. They felt Evrah glass over, an emotional shield of anger and coldness coating their messages. When Caspen tried to find a positive, offered to walk, it was painfully stepped on. Evrah's words felt like a needle to the soul, a misguided lash at an open wound. The actual message may be clearly displayed to the others, but to them the hidden meaning shone through: 'I despise you. I never wanted you.' What had they done? This, whatever this was, wasn't their fault. It wasn't their fault this time. Please.
At the mention of food, Caspen felt a light tug out of their own head. Focusing solely on the anticipation of flavor, a wave of calm passed their body. "Allow me," they murmured. One purple pod in each talon, they took their newfound claws and sliced them gently open, taking two halves for themself and sliding the other two across the floor to the Snekkits. "You just kind of stick your face in it. It's very nice. Red is spicy, and yellow is sour, and purple is sweet, but that's all I know." Emotionally drained, but thrilled to be of assistance, Caspen drank and waited for feedback from his companions. Their eyelids felt heavy, and, pod in claw, purple all over their body, they fell asleep.
Star ran/bounced over to one of the new trees and started exploring it. She poked at it with her paw. But nothing happened. She pushed at it again, this time a little bit harder. The white leaves gave a little crinkle sound. Getting braver Star gently pulled on one of the white leaves and found to her delight that it came away quiet easily. It was then that she noticed the sticks sticking out of the top of the tree. She found herself having to bounce hard to reach them. She was able to grab one in her mouth.
Now she had a white leaf and a pointed stick.
She put the paper down on a rock so that it would not get wet and jabbed the stick with the pointy end down onto the paper. The paper tore a little. Star undeterred took the stick and tried again in a different spot only this time being more careful. The stick left a small dot of black on the white leaf. Understanding what was happening Star started a lion dottle on the leaf.
"Oh that is soooo cool. Hey Evrah did you see what this can do!" She said as she held up the paper leaf.
"Show me" Evrah said.
"See, You take this stick and putting against the white leaf and it leaves a mark." Star says as she once again draws a lion.
"I wonder if it will draw on other things?"
Star sat down and quickly drew a design that looks like a very sloppy lion head on her black/blue leg. It didn't show up very well.
"Oh it does work. Look Evrah. I drew a lion. This is like those fire sticks that Yume gave me once. And I drew glowing lions all over the place."
She started drawing on her other leg when the pen seemed to have run out of Ink.
She shook to see if there was anymore ink inside and was surprised when the pen was suddenly working very well. Small drops of Ink splattered everywhere. On her, the ground and, and on Evrah.
"Oops!" She said as a rather large drop landed on Evrah.
"I can fix it for you so it looks cool Evrah, Like what Kip has." Star offered. She held up the pen and walked closer to Evrah her intent plain to see.
Evrah hadn't been prepared for Kip's... messages. When the first ping came through and he noticed it was from Kip he had expected an explanation for his absence. Well... it did explain, to him at least, what Kip was preoccupied with. What it didn't explain was why Evrah was so ... angry. So angry. To the point that he felt a bit taken aback as the blood in his core seemed to boil of it's own accord. He stilled as the messages continued, he was disinclined to add to it because if his blood was so out of his control he didn't want to test anything else. Evrah swallowed reflexively as the next wave of messages from Kip let him know that the pup wouldn't be aware of any message sent his way anyway.
But then Star gave him a distraction and Evrah latched onto it. Yes, mundane things. These new trees. And if the poffdulas were in the park maybe- could everyone just stop paying attention to Kip's messages and asking about it?! What was going on? Star and him were walking in the park. That was it! That was all. Could the yellow blob come walk with them? No. Evrah didn't think he could handle that right now. He wasn't even sure how he answered the question, but just no. No. But sure! Yes, he would quite like to know whatever it was that these trees could do! He looked at and through what Star was showing him, focusing was strangely difficult.
The sudden splat of ink brought the world back into focus though. He wasn't sure where it all hit but there was some on his arm and he looked at it blankly. The darker streak of black didn't stand out well against his own dark skin, but there was a notable difference. He usually thought of himself as black but when compared Star and the ink he supposed he was more of a dark grey.
"I can fix it for you so it looks cool Evrah, Like what Kip has." Star offered. She held up the pen and walked closer to Evrah her intent plain to see.
"It's fine i-" He had been mid reply to dismiss her concern, the ink strangely didn't bother him at all, when his mind caught up to the end of the statement and just... crashed. He was fairly sure he logged out of the chat. But he wasn't thinking about that. He watched with a detached interest at Star's intent before offering up his arm to see what she'd do with it.
Soaring over the city, Lullia debated her next course of action. Maybe she should claim a housing unit, if temporarily, since they seemed like they may be staying here for awhile. But something about the forest.. drew her, like nothing in Terrea had, yet. Something about it was oh so familiar... That's about when she spotted the snakeblob. Lullia lowered herself a bit, and signaled Nyvo, who was only just exiting the coliseum, to stay back a little. Spreading her wings wide and circling slowly, she lowered herself just enough that she could see, but still kept herself high enough that they shouldn't feel disturbances, and wouldn't notice her unless they looked up. She sent one more question over Friendzy, finally fully caught up, as she watched the chaos beneath her unfold.
Star couldn't believe it. Evrah was letting her draw on him! At this moment onward he had her total devotion.
She took her stick pen and started drawing. At first it did sort of looked like the marking on kips face, but it quickly grew to include fancy swirls and maybe one or two of the swirls looked sort of heart shaped
"There!" She said stepping back. The stick pen in her mouth making her words a little hard to understand.
"It looks so good on you! We should show the others. They must be in that other big building."
She and Evrah made their way to the Library and walked inside.

Lor had been coming to the library since she and Song moved into their new dwelling. To be honest she practically was living at the library since she found out about it. Even though she did have her own place with her own pet who worried about her a lot, the library felt right, like a home, but one that she could not live in permanently. Though try as she might to 'occasionally' sleep there. After the last time Song made it a point to follow her along to the library, Lor did not mind though since it just meant someone familiar that she could anchor herself to. The city was huge and there were so many other blobs around much more than she was used to at a time. It had been only Song and her for such a long time that really all these blobs were too much, a culture shock almost. But today would be different. She tried to make it a point to meet some new people like Song kept pushing her to do.
Lor was a little late leaving her home and making her way to the library. Her lokit Song floating beside her singing away. Out front of the library she saw some newer faces then some of the others who come in and out of the library. Lor made it halfway past them when the ghost-like cat pushed her towards them.
“Wait, why them?” she mumbled to the lokit. All it continued to do was push her towards them with an expectant look. “Ugh alright then.” she snapped at it.
Moving over towards the two blobs at the door. One of them long with multiple eyes and the other much smaller with a horn. “Uh...Hi, this one” she gestures over to the lokit behind her “Wanted me to try and make friends. Um...My name is Lor.” The blob looks a little awkward as she said the words, not sure about herself at the moment.
Evrah looked down at Lor. Then he looked over at the black roundling's pet- a floating thing that very distantly reminded him of a meowler... if the body had been removed. Vaguely the situation reminded him of meeting Nyvo and her for the first time. The comparison however didn't stir any feelings in the slightly despondent snake blob. "I am Evrah, this is Star."
The task her pet had given her, apparently, was to make friends. He wasn't in a mood that would benefit reaching that goal but... perhaps the others could assist her instead.
Aki glances over at the door and notices Evrah and Star
Heyyyy Evrah and Star! :Ichor_Wowie: Didn't see ya there :3
Were you watching the Arena fight? How did it go? Ssorry I wasn't there, by the way....
He shot a quick message back indicating how the match had gone and briefly considered the fact that if Lor did join them as they went to where Aki, Caspen and Hai were seated then... there was a good chance part of the conversation would end up in their group chat. He felt like he should be more reluctant to solve that problem and yet...
Also, everyone- meet Lor. Lor, Everyone.
There. Problem solved. Worse case there should be a way to remove someone from the chat... probably? He walked over to the table as the group greeted Lor, found a pillow, and curled up on the thing. Watching the others passively for a moment before closing all of his eyes as he continued to respond in their group chat.
now it just looks like a meowler with a big mane and small squinty eyes.
I like Eris, He is fun.
For you, Ev! I'm still a little mad.
I would... disagree with you on that front but I'd rather not argue right now.
And I don't.. mean that in a disrespectful way towards Eris, but he.... rubs me the wrong way.
I made him upset and now he's not talking to me haha,, :NervilaughIchor: :Ichor_Tired:
But Themis isn't either
I should be worried? Should I be
I don't think so Caspen, seems they ain't messing with us too much unless we mess with them first.
I'm hindsight...it was kinda funny
Lor&Order I think I'm getting the hang of this Friendzy thing.
Lor&Order! I like it
I like it.
Any one else want a lion?
Can I have a lion? :Ichor_Wowie:
Lor&Order Can you speak to other people with this? Hmmm. I can probably get more accounts this way.
Everyone should get one
It could be like
The team sigil
^w^ thanks, star
Oh I think Evrah still needs one......
I'm into that! Yeah, I'll take one. Y'all inside the library?
...where else would we be, awkwardly standing right outside of it?
Yes! I can show you my favorite spot...Um I'm here a lot.
Do ya want a straight answer ta that Lullia? :Happy_Kip~1:
I'm coming up on it now. Here I come!!!
Kip bursts through the front doors of the library, looking like he's gonna shout out for his friends. A quick glare from the librarian shuts him up before he starts, and instead he quietly looks for the rest of the Fools
SHHHH. There's no need to be loud!
Hai is glaring daggers in his direction...well as much as his neutral face can glare daggers
Lullia turns her head on instinct, despite the fact that clearly nothing good is going to come of that. Instead, most of her wingeyes turn to focus on Kip.
Kip spots the group, and is very aware of the looks he's getting. From many, many eyes
Okay. Now you need to explain yourself.
Evrah still has all of his eyes closed and didn't even flinch
Yes. Kip. Go ahead and explain yourself.
You're in a library a sancuary of knowledge and stories, there's no need to be so loud.
I'll try Lor, just how I am though.
Hey everyone. Hey, Ev...
I don't think he has an inside voice
So after the arena fight, bumped into the announcer. She's pretty cool. Got distracted, we talked about stuff...and... things...
Sex. Hot steamy stuff. And somehow, I have no :Kip_Bleep: idea how, it got sent out in Friendzy.
Seriously. I'm so sorry guys. It was embarassin' when I saw
lor blushes bright gold Oh my
I also have no idea what that is... i mean, i kinda remember it being a bad thing... but no details. Are you okay Kip?
Go ahead and explain Kip. Clearly it is fine.
Star looks up briefly then back to her drawing.
kip is chuckling, face blushing as pink as his eyes KipToMyLou
Ahaha, no Aki, I'm ok. I think it's the right word
It's when two blobs stimulate each other so that they feel good
Star has now paused and is looking at Kip..
So it's like... really aggressive compliments??
Thanks for the save, Ev.
blushing even brighter gold Do we really need to explain what sex is!
Ehh, this is more physical. Like the way another blob touches, or rubs, or does somethin'to ya that just feels awesome.
But touch is uncomfortable,,
I don't get it
..so it's like... how Friendzy is like.. talking mentally, this "sex" thing is like..... oh, what was it called...... I.. think it was.... combat practice?
Wait, no, I...I literally cant think how else to explain it.
Anyways. That's where I was
Well, it something that was used to make other beings. Though I'm certainly not comfortable with touch, there are a lot of others who well really enjoy said activities.
Sorry that I sent all that in our chat. N that I didn't say where I was
All of your examples are unpleasurable and/or hurt though,,
Might be easier to show than to explain.
So it's.. not getting told you did a good job fighting or.. doing a good job......
Oh, so it's bleeding.
Or you know.. that thing when two people.. like... date eternally??
Star has gone back to finishing her drawing
Bleeding is SCARY
Was it scary??
GODS NO HAVE YOU NO DECENCY!
Are...are ya volunteering me, Ev?
Lullia...ehh? I think that's called Love?
And from what I was told, it can be a part of it, but not always
They don't seem to understand the words.
No, no, I think "love" was that thing that makes people happy short-term but really really upset long-term once something bad happened... you know, that thing where there's like.. a ceremony? And then children happen?
And I thought the ceremony was necessary? Everyone always told me it was... but if it's like bleeding... this is so confusing.
About the demonstration
I'm pretty sure most of us are still confused
No. No demonstration.
Thank ya, Hai, for the backup there. Probably ain't necessary.
tldr: The fools doodle on each other. Kip finally notices his awkward messages from earlier and the group reunites in the library. There's an attempt at educating the younger-minded blobs on the topic of sex-ed. Lor accedentalies her way into the mess thanks to her pet insisting she talk to them.
"Ya know, Lor, no, I don't think I got a decent bone in my body...wonder if I actually should go check out Wiggle's class." Kip chuckled just a little, though it seemed rather forced and he stopped as soon as he noticed nobody else was laughing. He was just trying to lighten the mood a little, but between everyone's looks and a quick private Friendzy chat with Hai, the pup knew that he had screwed up. By not telling anyone where he was going, by somehow transmitting that into the Fools chat, and by casually (and somewhat forcefully) trying to start a sex-ed session that was never asked for.
After gazing down at the floor for a moment, Kip spoke up again, his rumbling voice much quieter than usual. "Look, guys...I'm sorry. I shouldn'ta wandered off like that without sayin' nothin, 'n I'm kinda being an ass right now too. So, my bad." The pup finally looked back up, eyes settling over on Ev.
There was some stuff that he had to discuss with the snakeblob at some point, but he wasn't entirely sure if Evrah was ready for that just yet. Hell, Kip wasn't sure he was ready for it yet, either. "Hey, Ev. When ya got a minute, ya wanna take a walk? Wanted to talk to ya." The off-handed way Kip mentioned it wasn't typical of him, Kip was just trying to let Evrah know that the discussion could wait until he was ready.
"So what else y'all been gettin' into since I've been gone? We still doodlin' on folks? Wonder what this markin' would look like if it just, ya know, kept goin."
Hai couldn't help but feel some sympathy now. He hadn't really meant to be harsh, more just establishing lines and boundaries. Apparently Kip simply hadn't known and he couldn't be mad at the pup for making an honest mistake. He gently pushed the pup towards the colorful poffdula shells over and began painting wobbly, messy patterns on him. Hai turned and called to the rest of the Fools, "Kip sseemss in dessperate need for a makeover. Sshall we assisst him?"
Hai hummed (or perhaps purred, snekkitborn as he was) while trying to draw squiggly swirls around Kip's shoulders. While drawing, Hai couldn't help but cast his eyes over the others. He felt fondness growing in his heart as he looked at each and every one of them. Even if they had issues, even if they squabbled, this felt like family.......
He draws on anybody else willing within reach and also offers himself to be drawn on. Soon the fools would be a horrible colorful mess, but at least it was fun!
"Hey, Ev. When ya got a minute, ya wanna take a walk? Wanted to talk to ya."
Most of Evrah's eyes opened at that weirdly un-Kip-like statement. What the hell did that mean? How the hell does he get to run off without saying something, blast their group chat the way he did, and come back only to say that?! That weirdly reasonable sounding thing that was so not... not Kip-like. Not just because it seemed tactful but, to Evrah, it felt like Kip was trying to delay the conversation. If Kip was delaying it Evrah… well he wasn't sure he wanted to know what it would be about. What in the world would give Kip reason to pause?
Evrah watched as the pup got sucked into the doodling before he stood and walked away from the generally happy noises of the fools as they doodled on eachother and carried on. He slipped around a bookshelf and out of sight as quickly and quietly as he could. Then he waited briefly to be sure no one was following. Once he was sure he wouldn't have any unwanted company he ambled away from the more populated areas of the library.
Draco could not believe he was doing this. But stealing a book was evil, right? That four legged purple blobling had some how wrangled him into this. Of course it helped when you had a nasty evil meowler to help.
"Ouch! Stop poking at me. Those claws are hurt!" Draco scolded his meowler. The meowler just looked at him and went to poke him again. Her claws were still out making it clear that she did not intend to stop until he went through the door.
Draco took a deep breath, calmed himself down and strolled into the library. He had been oing to case the joint first and then come back later, But what greeted him inside was pure chaos and the opportunity to steal the book unnoticed was something he could not ignore.
There must have been a whole group that had recently come to the city. And it looked like they had discovered the writing sticks, because they were writing on each other. There was a larger one laying down on some pillows with several blobs surrounding him, all drawing on his dark hide. Others were taking turns drawing on each other. And the librarian looked beside herself trying to get them all to stop.
It was an opportunity of a life time. He could not have asked for a better set up. Draco went directly to the shelf that held the best sellers. There was only one book, which made it easy for Draco to just grab and go. He walked out of the library and quickly went around the corner to where his meowler was waiting.
His meowler looked pleased with him and both of them left.
"Now what?" Draco asked his meowler. The meowler just looked at him, then with a flick of her tail, she walked toward the deeper parts of the swamp. Draco shrugged and followed. The book tucked tightly under his arm. Maybe he would read it later.
((For a log of where Kip & Evrah went, go read #anywhere-space in Discord I ain't copyin all that ))
Some time later, Kip & Evrah had finished their talk outside, and were back in front of the library, making their way inside. The pup seemed pretty at ease, with a wide grin on his face as he chatted with the snakeblob. Occasionaly, he was distracted by another of Ev's doodles he hadn't noticed before, proudly showing off his own swirly designs that Hai had designed. It gave Kip an idea, one he was doing his best to articulate. "So why don't we grab some folks, grab some of this papyrill, and everyone can draw up a-"
He hadn't meant to bump into another blob who was exiting the library: his focus was almost solely over on Ev. "HEY! Watch where yer goin! So anyways, Ev, we can..." The bump from the book-toting blob barely registered in his head: just enough to yell at them, then back to plotting with Evrah.
He didn't make it far before they were already back inside, and he could see Hai and Star. Perfect! "Actually, c'mon Ev, we should tell 'em too. Hey....hey e'rebody. Heyheyhey." He couldn't of looked happier as he pranced over to the group, trying to grab the attention of any of the Fools still doodling, then anyone else who wasn't. Even grabbing the newcomer Lor & waking Caspen (gently) from their nap and rounding everyone together around a couple tables (not that he wanted to sit, it just seemed like a good place to gather them all.)
"So, these are pretty cool, right?" Kip started, pointing at the various doodles on the gathered Fools. "Well I got's me an idea. I know we're on vacation 'n such, but ah think we could build ourselves a good reputation here." His voice rumbled across the table, the pup still seeming rather excited. "So, why don't we put ourselves out there, ya know? Advertise! Let folks know we're here to help out, maybe bust some feral heads if need be."
"If we just grab some papyrills and doodle up some ads, we can stick em around the city, maybe with my...err actually, Ev or Hai's friendzy handle to reach out if they're needin' help." Kips eyes were wide with delight. "C'mon, whaddya think? Isn't that great, or what?"
