The Beginning


Wake up...

[However you were sleeping or dreaming until just now, you are suddenly awoken. The means is strikingly mundane. It's the nagging beep of an alarm, which is coming from inside a dresser in the room you woke up in. Of course, you don't remember coming here. You were sleeping in this futon, but what is this place? There's another futon beside you... it moved! There's another person beside you! Are you just gonna lie there while there's a stranger in your not!room and an annoying alarm? Figure out what's the deal with them and go explore the hotel or something, gosh. Who knows, maybe they'll have free breakfast.]

[The Grinch was so close!
Such a masterful scheme.
But fate had other plans.
He'd only win in his dreams.

He had just reached the peak,
Of Crumpet's mountaintop.
Only seconds away,
Till he'd let the presents drop.

But then he wakes up,
The Grinch is surprised!
This wasn't his mountain.
It's nowhere he recognized.

This place was too nice.
More than he could afford.
And if one is a Grinch,
That simply can't be ignored.

The Grinch speaks to his roommate.
It was an unpleasant talk.
Then he gathers his clothes.
He begins to walk.

The Grinch explores the hotel!
He'd free himself of this bind.
He searches for the culprit.
He'd give them a piece of his mind!

The Grinch spots a passerby
(Clad in his Santy Claus Coat)
He'll get their attention!
His voice escapes his throat!]


Now listen here! [The Grinch yells!]
You kratunkulous schnunk!
I have no business being here!
Get me away from this junk!

I have no time for this!
My plans cannot fail!
So send me home now...
Or I will make you wail!
tibkins: for a whole generation. Again. (I don't want to redefine 'humiliation')

[personal profile] tibkins 2016-11-18 06:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well you have her attention]

Kratunkolaiwhatzamacallit?

[Shelley mumbles that a couple times before shrugging]

I don't think I can help you with this. I didn't kidnap you.

[She doesn't even bat an eye at the fact there's a fuzzy green person talking to her]
stinkstankstunk: (007)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
[The Grinch sneers.]
So you say that you're not to blame.
Then whose fault is it?
Go on, give me a name!
tibkins: It isn't like you're good at anything else (You should be a writer too)

[personal profile] tibkins 2016-11-19 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
[That does it. Shelley takes out her notebook and starts jotting down the rhymes. Boy will this come useful for her next book for children]

John Doe did it. What a miscreant he is! If you want to find him you should talk with the cook in the restaurant. She works for him!

[...that was an outright lie and she knows it. She just wants to get this green creature to say more rhymes.

Well, that and she's extremely opposed to the Grinch on account on what she thinks he is. He had a lot of bad experiences already with green fuzzy goblins of many sizes]
stinkstankstunk: (001)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[The fib fools the Grinch.
That's all you needed to say.
For he begins to march off.
He'll try to find the restaurant on his way.]
tibkins: Let's go back to civilization (There's no TV in the wilderness)

[personal profile] tibkins 2016-11-19 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
[...oooooooh that's not what she expected to happen. Maybe outright lying wasn't the best thing she could have done. With some luck this won't come back to bite her in the ass.

...

No, you know what, what kind of mature adult would she be if she did nothing?]


Wait! I don't think you should talk to him right now. You don't even know what he could do to you if you bother him!
stinkstankstunk: (010)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
Bother him? [...The Grinch said.]
They interrupted my schemes!
They've blacked out my hopes!
They've ruined all my dreams!

So yes, my dear.
I have half the mind,
To put an end to my tormentors!
Wipe them off the face of mankind!
tibkins: Stop ruining the walls, Lottie! (Tell me this is a dream)

[personal profile] tibkins 2016-11-19 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
...I should have kept my big mouth shut. [She mumbles to herself]

Your schemes won't be ruined because you're here right now! Surely when you return home you can continue, right?

sacrament_of_blood: (The Empty aren't here? Impossible.)

[personal profile] sacrament_of_blood 2016-11-18 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[Merciless is still in her pajamas, her old clothes having been in a not very fit state to wear. She stares quizzically at the angry green thing.]

I know not who holds responsibility for this, but it is not I.
stinkstankstunk: (006)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Do you know anything,
About where I might find this louse?
Because once I find them, I swear,
I'll kick them out of this house!
sacrament_of_blood: (You're risking your soul.)

[personal profile] sacrament_of_blood 2016-11-19 03:24 pm (UTC)(link)
If I discover them, I shall personally punish them for their wickedness.
ecdyses: (Hᴀʀʟᴇǫᴜɪɴ)

[personal profile] ecdyses 2016-11-18 07:30 pm (UTC)(link)
My, my that's certainly something I've not been called before. Dare I ask what a "kratunkulous schnunk" is?

[ Maybe he should be more surprised at the Grinch's everything, but maybe Hazama's just happy that he's not the only green haired person here.]
stinkstankstunk: (012)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
It's what you are,
you dumb little punk!
I could call you much worse things
Than just a schnunk!

I could call you griffulous!
You're a groffulous groo.
I think you're schmoosler,
A schminkler and a poop-poobler too!

You're a horrendous object!
One that nobody loves.
You're untouchable,
Unless I wear antiseptical gloves!

So I'll tell you again.
Perk up your ears!
Get me back to Mt. Crumpet.
Or I'll give you something to fear!
ecdyses: (Sᴄʀᴇᴀᴍɪɴ')

[personal profile] ecdyses 2016-11-19 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
...now that sounds more familiar. [ Strangely he seems happy about all of that strange, insulting rhyme. He grins in a seemingly satisfied way, before adding:]

But I can't take credit for any of this, the schnunk you're looking for isn't me.

Hazama, a pleasure to meet you.
stinkstankstunk: (010)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
I do not care who you are.
I do not care what you say.
If you're not who I'm looking for,
Then get out of my way!
ecdyses: (Wɪɴᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴛ)

[personal profile] ecdyses 2016-11-19 05:22 am (UTC)(link)
No need to be pushy. [ Said with a sigh, but he does move out of the way.]

Do tell me your name at least, before you run off? [...he's curious, ok.]
stinkstankstunk: (014)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 05:35 am (UTC)(link)
[More stupid questions?
The Grinch has to scoff.
But he can't resist the answer.
He loves to show off.]


I am The Grinch, my boy!
And all good things I do loathe!
I keep myself Grinchy,
With the use of a Grinch Oath!

olivefuranotherday: (Squee)

Attention

[personal profile] olivefuranotherday 2016-11-18 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[Nepeta looks up as the Grinch comes forth. Is he doing alternian slam poetry or something? Oh, maybe he's roleplaying! Or maybe both? Nepeta didn't think she'd have any oppurrtunities here and perks up.]

Nepeta twitches her whiskers curiously at the green beast!
Are you lost too? She said
Nepeta also wishes to be released.
But she can't find a solution so instead.

Nepeta looks up expectantly with wide eyes.
Purrhaps we can work together to get outside?
She thinks that they would make pretty cool allies!
We can break down the door even though it is fortified!

[Whew! Rhyming is kinda hard if you have to do it on spot.]

stinkstankstunk: (011)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
Hmph! The Grinch has no friends,
No family, no allies.
To suggest anything else,
Would be very unwise.

However, I am intrigued by your idea,
Of the door being fortified!
Break it down, you say?
Well, I'll have to abide!
olivefuranotherday: (Apex Purredator)

[personal profile] olivefuranotherday 2016-11-19 10:29 pm (UTC)(link)
That sounds purrty lonely Nepeta thinks.
But she'll respect The Grinch's opinion,
Even if she purrivately thinks it stinks!
[ Um rhyme, rhyme, rhyme. Crud what rhymes with opinion]
Um... but they'll work equally as she is not a minion?

Nepeta angerly gestures with an paw at the door,
Shes pounced and lunged at that stupid thing
and she regales The Grinch with her purrevious attempts with a mighty roar!
They'll shatter it into pieces with a pawerful swing!

[ Wow, a bard! Polite clapping – and she's not even sarcastic about it. Just a little confused because what's a kratunkulous schnunk anyway?

-- And then Yukino realizes he might be talking to her. ]


Oh! Who, me? My apologies, but I think we're both in the same situation, sir.

stinkstankstunk: (005)

[personal profile] stinkstankstunk 2016-11-19 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
Do not clap for me!
I don't want any applause!
I only want to find my way out.
I have no time to pause!

[personal profile] spatial 2016-11-19 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
I-I'm sorry! [ But he keeps rhyming, so she's not sure if this is part of his act or what... When in doubt, apologize?? ]

Are you looking to go back to your partner? Well, then it's nice that even big Exceeds like you can form such deep bonds...

[ She's only ever seen tiny ones, like Frosch. This one looks like he's seen better days. ]

[personal profile] simplism 2016-11-19 08:54 am (UTC)(link)
..are you some kind of performer?

[It sounds like he's very dedicated, if he's keeping up with his craft even in this situation. Something about this guy... he doesn't like. At least that's what his gut is telling him.]

I would also like to get out of here... back to important other things. Unfortunately that doesn't seem possible at the moment. At least not with what we've found so far.
schrodingerswhat: (i tried to close the book)

[personal profile] schrodingerswhat 2016-11-19 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
What are you supposed to be, some kind of rhyming spinach monster?

[He scoffs. Whatever it is can't be more annoying than a cartoon rabbit.]

You're going to have to do a lot better than that if you're trying to freak me out.
