[Hello network! I'm sure you weren't planning to see a tarantula today, but that's too bad because Vriska thinks everybody needs to see one.

Particularly her cobalt blue. The video clicks on to show Vriska for a second, grinning and looking pretty pleased.]


I'm sure everyone could stand to have a little excitement in their dull lives, and I'm feeling so gracious today that I figured I might as well give you something to watch for a while!

[She turns the video around so that it can focus on her molting spider.]

In case you're too stupid to figure out what's going on, my spider is molting. Finally. It looks pretty awesome, right?

It looks like she still has a while to go, though. A couple of hours at minimum. So enjoy! I just provided with you two great hours of entertainment.

[Said to herself mostly:] This will be a lot easier to clean up than my lusus molting.

[And yeah, she is definitely going to sit there and record all two hours of it for the network to see. You're welcome.]
professorlionface: (Intense concentration.)

[Oh, awkward, it's the furry guy again.]

Haplopelma lividum, from the looks of it.

[All according to keikaku.]

Well, it goes with the territory of being a biologist. That one's not really native to around here, it must've cost a pretty penny!

Ah, that does happen on occasion here. I know a previous iteration of mine left some books and clothes which I inherited. It's a little embarrassing that few of them fit anymore.

I imagine some of the more exotic pet stores might import that sort of thing. I'm sure she'll appreciate having a friend, of course.

[He has her talking, at least, but isn't quite sure how to transition into the conversation he intends to start without her blowing him off just yet.]
professorlionface: (I find myself brimming with thoughts.)

That's just the thing, however, sometimes we don't recall previous visits, but that wouldn't erase the evidence of our being here. You can find it sometimes on your own, if you know where to look. It was mostly friends and colleagues that informed me.

You seem pretty well-informed for only having this one since your arrival. Have a lot of experience with them?
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

Lusus? Latin term, means "freak". Maybe "mutant"? I'm not really sure what the usage in this context is, however. Care to elaborate?

So, you were raised by these beasts, but where were your genetic parents? Is this...typical in your culture?
professorlionface: (Well...that's something.)

Signs. Is this why each of you seem to feature the Zodiac so prominently? Some kind of social dynamics involved? I've heard that the blood colors have something to do with the hierarchy, but I'm not especially educated on your culture, I'm afraid.
professorlionface: (What was I thinking?)

...Right. [Sure, everybody's got their theories of universal origins, astoundingly unscientific as they may be. Everyone knows Galactus was in on that somehow (or jut as much a product as the universe itself, but whatever).]

So, in essence, you're left their legacy to do with as you will? I suppose that's quasi-familial.

Well, there can arise some cases where that would occur. Some circumstances separate a person from their biological connections, and sometimes they'll find themselves searching for the answers once they've reached the age where it would matter to them.

It sounds like that's more than standard than the exception in your culture.

I take it you're the kind who cares, then.

Obviously. Why are you so interested, furbeast?

Curiosity. [Stalling, trying to get her to see him as not a threat.]

And, actually, the title's usually just "Beast", no need for the prefix. Though Dr. McCoy will work just as well, if not better.

It's something of a joke on the contradictions therein, something about not reading a book by its cover.

I was just a kid when I adopted it, and though it's become more apt since, I don't tend to use it as much.

One or the other. You'd have to actually know the kind of person I am to really understand it, so it doesn't especially work on a surface level. Not as a joke, at least.
