  1. [20:23:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Mackdaddy is sittin gin his chair
  2. [20:24:09] <Mackdaddenzie> Sittin' gin
  3. [20:28:04] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And he's been sitting for about an hour, with his gin by the chair and...
  4. [20:29:12] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It's the dawn of the next day, the sunlight filtering slowly through your window, Ross is probably waking up about now if you have him out of his ball.
  5. [20:32:05] * Mackenzie sits in his chair, absorbing... Well mostly the cool things on the set of that new movie. I wonder if they'll--OH GOD I'M BRILLIANT, DON'T FORGET TO BRING THAT UP! Also I wonder what was up with all those--OH GOD THE SIGNING, WHY DIDN'T MY AGENT REMIND ME?! And if I'm gonna be here for a while, I should probably--OOH, THAT'S WHAT I CAN DO! THAT COVERS EVERYTHING!
  6. [20:34:26] * Mackenzie sits and strokes his Vulpix (don't even go there,) mulling over his plan of action for the next day, which we can probably transition to!
  7. [20:35:40] * Mackenzie actually first, he RESEARCHES SOME THINGS ON A COMPUTER~ Probably a laptop with hotelnets? I dunno?
  8. [20:36:38] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Okay the sun's totally out now.  And yeah, there's hotelnets, so if Mackyboy has a laptop he can totally use it, and laptops are fluff items in this game so YEAH
  9. [20:39:04] <Mackenzie> "Okay Veronica, let this stand as your first performance!  You remember what you need to do, right?"  "Vul!  Pix!"
  10. [20:40:59] * Mackenzie heads out, without his umbrella, and in a different outfit, much more casual, with his hair done up poorly and his face not made up like it was yesterday. To the ~place he was researching~, which is, in fact, the location of the Mackenzie Frazier fan club!
  11. [20:45:56] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It doesn't have a building or anything, per se, but it meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in a public spot that they rent out in a local mall.  So you head for the mall, hopefully resisting the urge to go shopping.
  12. [20:51:21] <~Aori_Radidjiu> On the way there, your cell phone goes off.  Caller ID says it's...your manager, Jennifer Harrington.  Oh boy.  While at first she'd chew you out for forgetting  things right away, she quickly realized it was more effective to wait until the next morning, after you'd sat in your chair.
  13. [20:55:05] <Mackenzie> "All according to plan..."  Mackenzie finds a totally-unobtrusive place to handle a phone call--namely a bathroom stall--and calls her back.  "Before you say it, trust me, I know.  I could blame this or that, but it's basically my fault.  I actually have an interesting development to address, though.  And an unrelated coverup to save face as well."
  14. [20:58:05] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You can almost HEAR her wrinkling her pretty nose.  She's pretty good looking, but with how livid she gets sometimes it just ruins it.  "Really now?  Well, if you think it can make up for tomorrow, then this had better be pretty good!"  She's not angry yet.  Gooooood.
  15. [21:02:06] <Mackenzie> "Okay so, I've gotten a personal invitation by mail to the set of a new movie.  They've shown me part of the set and some of the effects and things they'll be using.  As for a premise, all I know is it'll involve infiltrating a group of modern pirates as a member of a navy.  Seems like there's extremely little known about it, though.  That part's the really good news."
  16. [21:03:05] <Mackenzie> "Oh, some kind of mysterious dark energy they can use on pokemon to make them extremely powerful, too."
  17. [21:03:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's silence for a bit, and then a "Hmmmm, sounds good, go on.  You should've brought me along, though."
  18. [21:05:24] * Mackenzie scratches his head. "Yeah, I know. It was all really short notice though, and you're still nowhere near Wakino. This will be shot right here, so I don't have to lift a finger. There's a slightly less good--but still positive--thing to discuss as well, that can help brush this whole PR thing off."
  19. [21:08:38] <~Aori_Radidjiu> "And that is...?" You can hear her pen tapping on her notepad in the background
  20. [21:09:05] <Mackenzie> "As I was being taken to the set, I kind of got jumped by local fanbase.  I know that should have been a tip-off, but I was a bit distracted.  I opted to get out of the situation ASAP so I kind of copped an act of being a cosplayer and shoved her off.  So what I'm thinking is, I can go to them--they have a whole fanclub--and sell them a story about being robbed, and that person would be
  21. [21:09:06] <Mackenzie> who the girl 'saw'.  They could lead me into a short investigation type of deal, and I could connect with my fanbase as well as coming up with a story for my absence yesterday."
  22. [21:13:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> ( Jennifer)
  23. [21:13:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (in case you wanted a mental image)
  24. [21:14:15] <+Kraken> (Glasses: check.)
  25. [21:14:37] <Mackenzie> (He just had to pull out his spank bank and it was right there.)
  26. [21:15:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (That is not from my spank bank.)
  27. [21:15:46] <+Kraken> (So what IS from your spank bank?)
  28. [21:17:24] <~Aori_Radidjiu> "Hmmm, sounds pretty good."  Scribble scribble scribble.  "I'll be over next week, we can talk more then. Later."  She hangs up.
  29. [21:22:28] <Mackenzie> "That was more painless than anticipated..."  He steps out of the stall and sees someone has entered just as he said that.  After a quick embarassed glance, he goes to wash his hands despite not actually needing to and leaves quietly.
  30. [21:24:00] * Mackenzie makes his way to where the website said they'd be meeting, about the time they said they'd be meeting!
  31. [21:24:10] * Mackenzie is referring to the fan club.
  32. [21:27:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> After a bit of walking, you're at the spot!  Sandwiched between a McDuckletts and a Cleffabucks, there's a couple of people setting up a table and putting up posters of you all over the walls and a cardboard cutout of you in your "Pirates of Visiwa" getup.  Almost ALL of the people here at this are girls, and you can see Eileen's leading the effort to set everything up, although there's
  33. [21:27:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> not MUCH to set up, it seems.
  34. [21:28:59] <Mako> (what a shitty club)
  35. [21:31:47] <+Kraken> (And then Eliza was there, solidfying my need to murder her)
  36. [21:32:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> One of the girls QUICKLY notices you and her eyes widen.  She opens her mouth but seems to be stuttering, and so she taps the shoulder of a girl setting up a poster next to her and points, and then that girl ends up doing the same thing, until nearly all the girls in the club are staring wide-eyed at you but Eileen, who turns around and then gives a "Oh my god.  Oh.  My.  God."
  37. [21:34:40] * Mackenzie wanders over, hands in pockets, toward Eileen. He probably looks a bit different than she'd think, without his fancy getups and makeup. And at least $50 in his hair. But he still gives her a half-handed wave and a smirk. "Why hello there. Pleasant day for a meeting, no?"
  38. [21:35:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> "Y-y-y-y-y-y-y-yes!  Yes it is!"
  39. [21:35:39] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Eileen is the only one who seems to be able to talk.  "S-so what bring you h-here?"
  40. [21:39:00] <Mackenzie> "Well who would I be if I didn't acknowledge my fans?"  His face gets a bit more serious.  "To that end, you know that I couldn't make it to my signing yesterday, right?  There's a reason for that.  You see, I've had my hotel room broken into.  Some of my outfits and my prized pokemon, my Roselia, were taken.  Have you seen heads or tails of anyone who might have been wearing one of my
  41. [21:39:01] <Mackenzie> costumes?  Anything at all?"
  42. [21:42:35] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Eileen's mouth opens and closes a few times, her eyes widening.  "Ah!  Yeah, yesterday, there was a guy who I thought was you but he wasn't and I thought he was a really good cosplayer and then he went into a black car with some weird guy!"
  43. [21:44:59] * Mackenzie strokes his chin. "A black car, you say? Which direction did they go?"
  44. [21:47:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> "They went a"  She pauses, and then slowly spins around in place, it seems like she's orienting herself or something.  "They went Westward from the hotel, that's it!  No idea where they went from there, though."
  45. [21:55:34] <Mackenzie> "Well, that definitely helps considerably.  Even a general vicinity can help considerably.  You see..."  He draws attention to the Vulpix that's been trailing about his feet.  "Veronica here has a very keen nose, similar to that of a tracking dog.  She is accustomed to the scent my Roselia gives off, which he can give off in excessive amounts when frightened.  Therefore, this in fact is
  46. [21:55:34] <Mackenzie> all I should need to find the culprit.  Now then..."  He quirks an eyebrow, his smirk returning.  "I do believe I owe you ladies an autograph."
  47. [22:00:03] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a unified squeal from all the girls as they all start rummaging for notebooks and posters and other things to sign on, and they're all polite enough to get into a line for you and let you sit at the table or whatever.
  48. [22:06:10] * Mackenzie puts on his generic "dealing with fans" face and signs the autographs in line, giving some generic line of praise and asking their name as he writes an equally generic line before his signature. After the last, he turns back to Eileen. "Thank you again for your assistance. Anything which can help me get my Roselia back will be of tremendous assistance." He then takes her hand
  49. [22:06:10] * Mackenzie and kisses it elegantly before bidding them a good day and heading off.
  50. [22:07:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> She turns the most wonderful shade of red as you leave, all the other girls there crowding around and squealing and congratulating her~
  51. [22:16:15] <Mackenzie> After being safely away from the group, Mackenzie looks down at his Vulpix.  "Veronica, don't you think covering up a lie with a lie is...  not that good of me?"  "Pix."  "Perhaps.  I mean I know I shouldn't have lied in the first place, but perhaps this will turn out for the best.  Besides, sayings are only sayings.  They aren't always right, only called upon whenever it would affirm
  52. [22:16:15] <Mackenzie> their truth."  Presumably getting outside by now, he begins walking toward the dome land of secret underground boats, referring to his map.  Once out of sight of the mall, he'd sumon Ross.  "Better soak up some more sun while it lasts.  One can never predict the weather, especially here."
  53. [22:23:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It doesn't take long to get your bearings, and figure out transportation to there!  Good thing too, because it started raining growlithes and meowths out there!  After a quick drive of about half an hour you reach the promised land and proceed through the hallways, a little soaked, and...roll me Intuition or some other thing you think would work for remembering the path to the elevator!
  54. [22:24:22] <Mackenzie> 1d6 worst possible skill
  55. [22:24:23] <DiceMaid-9001> Mackenzie, worst possible skill: 2 [1d6=2]
  56. [22:25:21] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You start stumbling around, getting lost.  ALL THESE HALLWAYS ARE THE SAME
  57. [22:27:06] <~Aori_Radidjiu> After a bit of walking you find a door.  This isn't the elevator, but it's a black door that sticks out among the white walls.
  58. [22:28:29] <Mackenzie> "We went...  left...  then right...  then...  no, no...  Drat.  Ross, do you recall the way?"  Ross only shrugs.  "Ro-se?"  "Well there is a door...  Worst case scenario is it's another set, or a door out."  Mackenzie boldly opens the black door to see who or what is inside.
  59. [22:32:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Inside you find a room full  It looks like a lab, with bits of crystals and ice laying around, some under microscopes, some in storage tubes, and some under a heated flame.  Despite being under a flame, though, it's still ice.
  60. [22:33:20] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a cry of "DELIIIII!" and a Delibird pops out from behind the table with the microscopes and heated flame, running toward you.  It's flailing its arms wildly at you, going "DELIDELIDELIDELI!" as it does so.
  61. [22:41:03] <Mackenzie> Hmm.  More interesting effects.  And oh, a pokemon.  "Ah, my bad."  He closes the door quietly.  "Hm, I must have interrupted them during a take.  Oh well.  Veronica, do you think you can track my scent through here, to where I might have went yesterday?  I know you're not ACTUALLY much of a tracker, but..."  Veronica sniffs the air for a moment, then looks up to him and shakes her head
  62. [22:41:03] <Mackenzie> .  "Vuuuuul."  "Very well then.  I'll just have to call in the big guns."
  63. [22:41:44] * Mackenzie recalls Veronica and Ross, then sends out his third pokemon. "Come on out, Wilford. I need you!"
  64. [22:42:39] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (1,1I would've said she could, but GO AHEAD AND USE WILFORD)
  65. [22:46:58] <Mackenzie> Wilford looks around excitedly, yapping a couple times.  Mackenzie squats down and puts Wilford's front paws on his legs.  "Alright Wilford.  I need you to find a faint scent trail of mine.  One from about a day ago."  "Pup!  Pup!"  Wilford, still an explosive ball of excitement, bounds around the immediate area a couple times, barking and sniffing the ground, before heading off, nose
  66. [22:46:58] <Mackenzie> dragging around the ground and sniffing constantly, tail wagging at maximum speed.
  67. [22:47:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Oh cool I would've had him go BARK BARK BARK but that works too)
  68. [22:49:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Wilford manages to pick up that scent nice and easy, he starts bolting, expectin gyou to follow him, and you're barely able to keep up as he goes around and around the hallways until you reach the elevator!  There we go.
  69. [22:52:41] <Mackenzie> "Aha!  Brilliant work, Wilford!  You will eat like a king today."  Mackenzie bends down and rigorously scratches behind Wilford's ears and on his back, then pats him on the head and recalls him.  Then Mackenzie promptly enters the elevator and sets it toward the bottom floor~.
  70. [22:54:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> ding!  You're back in the LECIACAVE, with all the ships there, there's some more paintwork done, and I dunno' what Lessy is doing so I'll let Shuku decide that~
  71. [22:56:57] <Lecia> Watching TV. Giant robots? You bet. It's definitely some Gundam show or another. She looks absorbed!
  72. [22:58:49] <Lecia> ...Completely absorbed. Yeah, you'll have to get her attention. Or maybe with a few moments, something will click. Whichever!
  73. [23:01:09] * Mackenzie enters the room, and then knocks soundly on the wall next to the elevator door. "Hello?"
  74. [23:02:35] <Mackenzie> (He became a fusion of Tropius and Manectric)
  75. [23:04:47] <Lecia> There we go. "A-ah! Sorry, didn't notice you came in!" She pauses the show, gets up, and bows in apology. "...Wait, did we call everyone already? I thought that was later..."
  76. [23:05:31] <Mackenzie> ("My, that small amount of dialog took you quite some time to say!  Do you have some type of disability?")
  77. [23:06:07] <Lecia> (I'll hurt you)
  78. [23:06:22] <Mackenzie> "Oh, no.  I just...  had an idea."  He pulls out his special magic glasses.  "It's about these."
  79. [23:06:49] <Lecia> "Oh?" Her eyes light up a bit. "Anything in particular~?"
  80. [23:06:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (...actually Gran didn't give them to you, he just let you try them on and took 'em back, but)
  81. [23:07:02] <Mackenzie> (You never said)
  82. [23:07:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (I'll just...temporarily handwave this.)
  83. [23:07:35] <Mackenzie> (you never actually said you were casting the spell, so now there's ogres)
  84. [23:07:36] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Actually fuck it you were going to get them anyway, FREE GLASSES)
  85. [23:09:28] <Mackenzie> "Well, it's pretty clear that I do not need glasses to see, and wouldn't reasonably want to wear these all the time.  Therefore, if I were to put these on momentarily whenever I suspected something suspicious, glasses I didn't actually need, don't you think that would get pretty obvious after a point?"
  86. [23:11:17] <Lecia> "...It would. It'd look pretty cool, but it'd make them more of a target..."
  87. [23:11:48] <Mackenzie> "As such, my suggestion is to repurpose them into sunglasses!  Sunglasses are much more excusable at random points.  Doing so indoors would still be odd at times, but still much easier to justify."
  88. [23:12:09] <Lecia> "Of course, you could pretend to need them in certain situations, like an alternate identity, but..." Worked for Superman.
  89. [23:14:46] <Lecia> " they would look even COOLER as sunglasses! Alright, that sounds like a good idea! Might be troublesome in the dark, though."
  90. [23:15:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> As Lecia says that she remembers Murphy's shades. Swoon~
  91. [23:15:47] <Lecia> Swoons, she does. Swoons, she does.
  92. [23:15:56] <Lecia> Twice, even.
  93. [23:16:18] <Lecia> ...She does compose herself though, and gets the glasses from wherever the heck they are for a minor tuning!
  94. [23:20:29] <Mackenzie> "The light or dark of the room wouldn't affect my ability to see the...  auras or whatever, would it?"
  95. [23:20:41] <Mackenzie> "I mean if walls are no obstacle..."
  96. [23:22:43] <Lecia> "It shouldn't, but they do make everything else darker. Great in the sun, try not to trip or run into a wall if the lights are out." She goes to the desk, pulls out tools AND THEN SUDDENLY THE GLASSES WERE SUNGLASSES. What did she even use?
  97. [23:27:35] <Mackenzie> Huh.  Pretty state-of-the-art, that.  "Very interesting."  He tries them on.  Not too dark, not too light.  "Handy tools you have here.  Well...  Thank you, I suppose."
  98. [23:28:47] <Lecia> "You're welcome! If you need anything tech related, I'm your girl~"
  99. [23:30:34] <Mackenzie> "Hm.  Certainly.  Sorry to barge in uninvited.  I'll see you in a couple weeks!"  With that he turns around dramatically, and re-enters the elevator.
  100. [23:31:06] <~Aori_Radidjiu> THE ELEVATOR
  101. [23:31:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Up you go?
  102. [23:31:16] <Lecia> "It's OK, have a nice day!" As he enters the elevator, she turns the TV on again.
  103. [23:31:19] <Mackenzie> I was going to use that as fade to black.
  104. [23:32:20] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Okay.
  105. [23:32:38] <+Kraken> Fade to quack
  106. [23:32:43] <~Aori_Radidjiu> CONCLUDE MINI
  107. [23:33:25] <Mackenzie> Get it?  Sunglasses?  Fade to black?
  108. [23:33:28] <Mackenzie> I don't either.
