Soft harp music heralded the arrival of a small Space player. Her moments mirrored the tune as she floated down towards the ground, twirling occasionally. Merlot expected her landing would be very precise and elegant but that soon changed with the tempo. And genre. The sudonian tried blocking out the sound but she was already in sync with the rhythm. Her movements became faster and sharper to match what was now club music. Merlot was still able to land safely, put with her paws in constant motion she found it more difficult to use her god tier powers to map out the terrain. She could only get faint glimpses of what she was looking for, but that did not deter her.
"dig." Merlot hums. Two blobs of space matter about the size of her head move towards the mud and scoop some up. They disperse once their task is complete, and new blobs take their place. The sudonian dances forward, eyeing the newly formed holes and continuing to hum "dig".
✺ Gaius [smear:4f4f4f]Knight of Space[/smear:e3e3e3]
Gaius was in the mood to explore, and, given that Derse and Prospit were both pretty much all city, he'd hopped a gate to his aspect's planet, which had a lot less development and, as he suddenly remembered, a lot more mud. Oh well. Mud was something he (and his wardrobe) saw a lot of anyway, and his knight's garb was stainproof. He wished he'd thought to change into a pair of boots instead of the sneakers that came with the outfit, though. As he walk-slash-danced through the mud, he could feel it squelch under his feet and seep into his shoes.
Note to self, if I visit Trink later, change shoes. His sister would probably not be thrilled if he left a trail through her house.
As he bopped along, looking for something interesting to catch his eye, he spotted Merlot, who was...what were they doing? Gaius began to move in the sudonian's direction, curiosity piqued when he recognised Space powers being used for digging. Buried treasure? Glitch artifacts? The interesting kind of artifact, he hoped. Like, old things from the different sessions that had gotten jammed together in the Glitch. Not alchemized artifacts. Anyone could make those; historical artifacts were much more interesting.
"Hi!" he called with a wave as he drew near. "What'cha digging for?"

"hm?" Merlot's ears stood up a little higher at the sound of Gaius' approach. "oh. well i'm just looking for frogs for now." She answers and turns to face him. Idly she mumbles for her Space powers to continue digging.
"i'd like to collect a few to study, but after that i may look around and see if i can find anything more interesting."
"At least they'll be easy to catch," Gaius noted, squinting down at the mud. "'s too bad they're all asleep. I used to chase and catch stuff like that when I was a kid; it was fun. Do you want some help?" he added. "I came down to explore a little, and if you want to look around for more stuff after you have some frogs, it's good to have an exploring buddy."
As Gaius could well-attest, after countless scrapes, bruises, and destroyed walky-talkies (in his defense, he thought they were water-proof. Or at least water-resistant).

"thank you, that would be nice. it shouldn't take too long to find say, three? ..two now." Merlot finds her first frog and puts it in her sylladex. "i'm merlot by the way. she/her. ruinist, seer of space, sudonian- if you're unfamiliar with my species the main thing you need to know is that i'm very poisonous so don't pet me without some kind of protection."
Oh, well, that explained her comment about studying the frogs. Gaius didn't really have an issue with that; he didn't really want to leave the Glitch - there was so much he could explore here - but he wasn't going to hold it against anyone who wanted to do the Ruinist science-y study thing and try to escape.
"I'm Gaius," he said, flexing a bit of Space power to scoop up some mud and let it ooze back down to the ground through his telekinetic "fingers," hopefully to end up with a frog held in them. "He/him pronouns, Preservationist, Knight of Space, plain old human."
The last thing, though....
"And...um, is that really a problem?" he asked, a bit incredulously. "I mean, do people actually just come up and try to pet you like a cat or something?" But why else would she need to add that kind of disclaimer? What the actual fuck; you don't just pet people.

"i'm a bit surprised you think that they wouldn't.," Merlot confesses, "i suppose i generally have more trouble with younger human players, and good percentage of players showing up for the first time are younger humans. they.. usually.. don't know any better. i do have a very similar appearance to a cat, or perhaps, a talking familiar- i don't take it personally."
"Oh, well, kids." Gaius shrugged. "Yeah, I guess they might not get it. It still seems kinda weird to me, though. I think if I were that age, if I met an animal or something that could talk, I'd at least ask first. ...though, come to think of it, I know at least one person from my session who probably would pet first and ask later." Nathaniel was...kind of impulsive. A lot like Locket, and she'd probably try to pet first, too. At least when she was younger. He didn't think she would now, though. Probably. Maybe.
"Oh hey!" He grinned and floated his find over to Merlot. "Frog number two."
Gaius grinned and gave Merlot a thumbs-up. "I'm always up for exploring," he said, tapping (squishing?) one foot to the planet's beat. "It's one of the things I really like about the Glitch: there's always something new to check out."

Nostalgic Lurker : It's sad that this place is gone. This is where my first introduction to RP was. I'll never forget this forum or the people that made the site what it was. Peace out glitch
