PERMISSIONS


[OOC]:
Backtagging: Yes.
Threadhopping: Heck yes.
Fourthwalling: Unlikely, but sure, if you want?
Offensive subjects: No objections OOCly!

[IC]:
Touching this character: He probably won't let anyone but Meridiana touch him for a longo time; if he's initiated contact first, though, chances are he's probably okay with it.
Kissing this character: Yeah no don't even try
Flirting with this character: You can but he's
Fighting with this character: Talk with me ([plurk.com profile] asherdashery)! I am not very good at threading fights so I'd like to have an idea what will go down.
Injuring this character: Talk with me, I will almost definitely say yes.
Killing this character: If you want to really upset a sweet Victorian lady... But also, talk with me.
Using telepathy/mind-reading: Absolutely! Dave is pretty much an open book; he has no mental shielding to speak of and no experience masking his emotions in any way that counts. Let me know if you need to know what he's thinking.

ABOUT THE FOURTH WALL


Dave is every inch a pop culture gourmet, so chances are, if your character's canon was live on pre-2009 Earth, there's a chance he's heard of it. There's also a chance he's met other members of your character's canon through his connections with [community profile] danganroleplay.

My default state is to keep him from mentioning those things, so if you're worried and don't want him to bring somethng up, I gotcha covered. If you're okay, though, with his knowing and/or mentioning your character's canon as a fictional entity or another world he may have come in contact with at some point, please let me know by filling out the little form at the bottom of this section!

Also, due to Dave's background and his subsequent stay in Dangan Roleplay, triggering content may arise in conversations with him. Such topics include child abuse, child death, murder, and manipulation, among others. You can opt out of any or all such topics below. Comments are screened.

Dave also texts like this with no goddamn punctuation. If you'd prefer not to deal with his walls o' cherry courier, let me know with the form! You can also comment here if you'd prefer I didn't thread with you at all for any or no reason. No hard feelings.

callbacks: YUMMYTOMATOES (bonk)
[There's a bright little bird...lizard thing minding its own business on a branch, cleaning its feathers and looking around with puzzled curiosity. The owner of the PokéGear sets it standing in the fork of the tree and then starts to creep up the branch with hands and knees, trying to keep his breath quiet. He's a kid, small, small enough for the branch to hold his weight, but it dips and the Archen notices him. As one, they freeze, and then both leap at once, the Archen away and the boy towards it, in a crush of squawking and leaves and confusion.

The PokéGear falls, too, thudding to the grass amid the cries of Pokémon, and it's hard to tell what's happened for a minute until a Gallade comes to pick it up. He's balancing a four-year-old blond boy on his hip while a Togetic hovers in dismay, everyone dusty from the fall, but the kid squirms in the Gallade's hold and beams without smiling from behind his very familiar shades. Proud and apparently unhurt, Dave holds up a PokéBall towards the 'Gear.]


I caughted it.

[Wart the Gallade turns the camera to his own desperate, exasperated, bewildered face.]

Help me.

((Kiddo Dave replies will come from [personal profile] knightoftimeout!))
callbacks: (long shadows)
[You'd think Dave would have learned his lesson about anonymity, but maybe learning doesn't stick so well at ass in the morning when he can't sleep. At least it doesn't seem like he's really trying to mask his identity, here. It's just...a plausible deniability thing, maybe. Probably, given the content of his message.]

what was growing up like for you
like
how was your childhood
were you happy
callbacks: (that superbass)
[The video starts on an unsure-looking Kirlia. He starts to edge away, but Dave--apparently behind the camera--speaks.]

Naw, go ahead, dude. C'mon. Don't be shy.

[The Kirlia sighs, extremely put upon, and then ballet-toes back into place. There's a Dawn Stone on the floor nearby; the Kirlia bends primly at the waist to pick it up, and:

Presto.

Wart the Gallade examines his arm-blades for a moment, then shoots Dave a look as if to say, "If we're quite done now." Dave chuckles quietly.]


Yeah, yeah, thanks for humoring me, bro. The moment has been secured for posterity. Duty discharged. [The relief on the Gallade's face is palpable before Dave turns the camera towards his own movie star mug. Hello, Johto.]

So, hey. I get that baby's first evolution is probably ancient headwear for most of you, but he's the first guy I got all the way to his final form. That's worth some kind of jokey home video.

[Yeah, because he's obviously being ironic about this. He's not Proud Dadding all over his starter, no sirree.]

Anyway, I've been hearing about a bunch of different evolutionary paths our Poképals can take, and, I dunno. I'm curious, I guess. If you ever made a choice like that, what made you pick one way or the other?
callbacks: (i got this for you)
[Cleared font formatting, check. Autocorrect, check. Masked I.D., triple check. Dave's been wrestling with this question for over a week, and he's no closer to an answer than he was eight days ago. No closer than he was three years ago.

Where's Dear Abby when you need advice?]


Have you ever been in a situation
Where you knew something somebody else didn't
And you weren't sure if you should tell them or not
Like you knew that if they found out they'd be really upset but there's also nothing they could do about it
And you don't want them to blame themselves
Or
Get mad at you
But pretending it didn't happen feels
I don't know
A lot like lying I guess
What would you do in those circumstances?

I'm asking for a friend.
callbacks: T1MCO (i am the star)
[Whoa, what's this? A video post from our resident red-texter? The young man in the feed doesn't have much of a facial expression behind his shades, but he seems pleasantly keyed-up somehow, anyway--maybe it's something in the way he bounces as he flops into his chair.]

I was going to ask if there's some kind of survivalist secret Santa for birthdays around here, or if a Pokémon takes care of it. Like, maybe there's just a widespread anonymous cultural practice of delivering rope and hardtack to someone's door on the anniversary of their exiting utero.

[The corner of his mouth slides up a bit.]

But then I discovered the most important item I've yet received here in Pokéworld. Ladies and gentlemen...

[He turns the camera to reveal a Ralts in a scarf probably twice as long as it is tall. It's holding what looks like the kind of cheap wind-up Electabuzz toy you'd find at the bottom of a child's fast food box.]

The Happiny MealTM toy.

[Dave is so stoked. The Ralts, more bemused than anything else, winds it up and seems surprised when it rattles across the desk. It crouches to watch the toy more closely as Dave pulls the view back to himself, still practically bursting (you know, for him) with ironic amusement.]

Anyway, since I've got all this kit now, does anyone in the Violet City neck of the woods want to go check out those ruins? I know it's basically freezing and all, but they're not supposed to be too far out, and. [He shrugs.] They sound all right.

[Meaning he really, really wants to go see them, and it is his birthday.]
