twenty-four. video.

[The communicator is focused on a darkened wall. A beam of light. A shadow puppet emerges, a grotesque face with "lips" that move in time with Katurian's voice.]

I feel like a pig about to be slaughtered.

[The face collapses. He uses his hands to form the shadow into a pig, appropriately. He squeals, shrill, and then chokes on a laugh. High pitched, pig-like:]

A dog about to be put down.

[He forms his hands, predictably, into a dog. BARK BARK, he goes, moving the shadow's jaw. He uncurls his hands without fanfare this time, clearing his throat. Growing unsteady. The camera stays on the empty wall.]

Tell me how you feel today. With art.
enigmaestro: (Yes Felicia.)

Oh my God, really?

Wow, Mr. Mayor, I think we found our new campaign poster.

Just slap Hundred for Mayor on it, and we'll call it a day. I'm sure it'll be the topic of conversation for the next month or so. Hell, it's better than some posters I've had.
enigmaestro: (Tangent.)

Wait, wait, I got it. 'Mayor Hundred: Building You A More Realistic Tomorrow'.

Get it? Building.
viced: (Factoid!)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
Nope, didn't pick that one up. [ so. Flat. ] And a more realistic tomorrow? Really? Let's not get anyone's hopes up here.
enigmaestro: (I haz a point.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Well you're the one who included a frowning blob.
viced: (Hurf)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
That's because I'm shit at drawing people, and buildings aren't exactly descriptive on their own. There's a reason I was a civil engineer instead of, oh say, a comic book artist.
enigmaestro: (Aw crap.)

voice;

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
A comic book artist.

[The thought of Mitchell drawing him creeps him out.]
viced: (Oh hell)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, when I was a kid and thought the blue blob I'd drawn was a dead ringer for Superman.

[ That would be the creepiest ]
enigmaestro: (Arched.)

voice;

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 05:54 pm (UTC)(link)
When you were a kid. How old was this, exactly?
viced: (I don't get you)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 08:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know, five or six? Why?
enigmaestro: (Gigglefits.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh.

I was picturing fifteen.
viced: (Are you shitting me)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 08:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh come on! I think by that age I had more important things to worry about!
enigmaestro: (Essentially the opposite of funny.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Are you calling the world I live in unimportant?

[Nah he's just fucking with you.]
viced: (Shifty)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 09:28 pm (UTC)(link)
No? Shit, with as much money as I've pumped into 'your world' I should be an honorary citizen!
viced: (Ohhhhh yeah no)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
That's Marvel, actually. Don't ask.
enigmaestro: (A conundrum!)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:27 pm (UTC)(link)
What is a marvel?

[TOO LATE.]
viced: (See you in the funny pages)

Goddammit, Edward. Okay. There are two major companies when it comes to superhero books. Marvel, and DC.

You're a DC, [ sneeerk ] Norman Osborn is a Marvel.
enigmaestro: (I haz a point.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Wait, why am I a DC? What sort of name is that? Surely that stands for something.

I wouldn't call Norman a marvel. Maybe his psychosis is a marvel.
viced: (Two for oh)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[ A low moan of frustration. ]

Well it used to be Detective Comics, you know, for Batman, but it's really just DC now. Detective Comics comics just sounds stupid!
enigmaestro: (Essentially the opposite of funny.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
No it doesn't. It makes more sense than DC -- it's a comic about detectives.

I'm a detective!
viced: (Oh er)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
But it's a publishing group! There's still a Detective Comics out there! You're even in it sometimes!
enigmaestro: (Enthusiasm.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Because --

[Beat. And he has that sinking feeling. Spoken hopefully:]

-- I'm a detective?
viced: (/eyeroll)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Batman's a detective too, you know. [ What an artful dodge... ]
enigmaestro: (Uneasy.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 11:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Are you -- are you trying to say that he's the focal point?
