[the video is only on for a split second; rikku is in her pajamas, lounging on her and santo's big red couch. and by lounging i mean curled up and looking sorry for herself with half a bottle of wine halfway hidden behind a cushion. but the video is gone soon enough and text fills the screen:]

max gibson has been gone for almost two weeks
(thirteen days and about 22 hours and a few minutes or something like that)
so i guess she's ported out for real and not just on some kind of weird vacation where she doesn't answer texts about free pancakes
or blowing up buildings
or creddo daytime soap operas
so now everyone is aware

[rikku is in her workshop, leaning lazily on her workbench. there are various bits of robots and tools scattered over it, along with a few empty cans of energy drinks (because those are exactly what she needs). she was wearing a sports bra beneath her coveralls, but girl got tired of being so confined so now the top half of it is pooled around her waist. she is rolling the comm around on the table when the camera turns on, so sorry if you get dizzy.

after a few seconds she stops, spiraled green eyes focusing on the camera.]

So not counting that weird month when Lachesis decided she wasn't cool enough to handle my presence here anymore, I've been here for about three years. Well, actually I've been there for three years and two days now.

[her nose wrinkles for a second before she sits up, grinning. this gets a response out of her little scout machina, which whirrs and beeps before crawling down to her shoulder from her hair. she giggles and taps its little machina head.]

Overall, I think it's been a great three years! I've met tons of people, got a pretty awesomesauce job, and basically the best boyfriend ever. We even--

[she is cut off by a loud growl, and then her pet kinkajou, brad, leaps down from above and swipes the machina off her shoulder so he can take its place. this is pretty much a regular occurrence in this house, obviously, because while she does screech a little bit, she doesn't shove brad away. he curls around behind her neck, beneath her hair, and rests his head on her shoulder as if he hasn't done anything wrong. she immediately rounds on the sugar bear because he knows what he did]

Brad! Fryd dra vilg, oui luimt ryja pnugah Scout! Pyt kinkajou, pyt!

[in the midst of this spurt of al bhed, she disappears from the frame as she crouches to pick up poor scout, who is beeping distressedly. she sets the little machina on the work bench and it awkwardly scuttles over to the comm, running into it and ending the feed.]

[this is the face of a very huffy, very not-pleased rikku in her lady luck dressphere. she is tapping the cards on her shoulder in an incredibly impatient and frustrated manner. just in case you couldn’t tell how done with the porter she is.]

Okay, I know I’m really awesome and all, but this has got to stop, Lachesis. If you want me, you can keep me, I’m cool with that. But don’t send me back for like, a millisecond and then decide, [she turns to the porter building behind her to say this, imitating the porter’s sexy woman voice somehow.] “Oh, Rikku, I’m so sorry come back and grace the City with your presence again!” [huf huff, front face again]

Because as much as I dig this place, you grabbed me out right in the middle of a really important project. Which, now that I think about it—

Santo, you didn’t touch anything in my workshop did you? [SOME OF IT WAS RIGGED TO BLOW HAHA. she actually looks a little worried, and taps her chin with the cards.] Please tell me we’ve still got a place to live. And Tony, please tell me I’ve still got a job.

Anyway, I checked the calendar—looks like I missed Halloween by literally an hour and a half. [the wickedest of wicked grins] Santo, come pick me up! So what if it’s a weeknight? Any parties still going?

Santo! I got us a pet. Isn't he the cutest thing?

[the honey bear makes a series of high-pitched squeaking/chirping noises. rikku reaches off screen and picks up a slice of banana. she smooshes it in her fingers and offers it to the tiny thing. its super long tongue whips out and licks it up. rikku thinks this is adorable.]

[it’s at night, the camera angle a little jumpy and the lighting a flashlight held by the same person who has the camera. max is crouched on the ground setting something up, hoodie up. she looks up after a moment and grins.]

Did you just improvise all of this?

Because this bit right here – [she points to something in the shadowy lump she’s been working over] – I love it.

[someone’s yellow-nailpolished hand comes into the frame, adjusting what max had just been pointing to. rikku then leans down a little further, trying to get a closer look; she’s wearing a red beanie hat, and nods with a grin.]

Yeah. It’s kinda what I do with my free time, y’know? It takes a little to get all the bits and pieces and chemicals, but it’s worth it.

It is definitely worth it. I haven't done much work with chemicals, but I'd love to know more. [max stands up, grinning.] Okay, I think we're good to go.

[the video cuts out, and resumes about seven minutes later. it’s still dark outside. rikku has something in her hand—some kind of remote-looking device. she offers it to max after fiddling with it for a moment.]

Wanna do the honors?

It would be my pleasure. [she takes it and presses the button. nothing happens. she gently presses the button again, and then turns to rikku, an eyebrow raised.] It was definitely set up right.

[rikku had been waiting too, but disappointment is evident on her face when nothing happens. she takes the remote, turning it over in her hands for a second. then she gives it a shake, and kind of pounds it with a fist.]

Come on, I knew I did this right! Fung, tysh ed!

[max looks disappointed too.] One of us is going to have to go back in, huh - [KA-BOOM. the abandoned building in frame turns into dust in a storm of bright explosions. rikku is thrown back a few steps, automatically raising her arms to shield her face. once the building is completely collapsed, she kind of looks to max, and then breaks into a grin, pumping a fist into the air and jumping up and down.]

Woo-hoo! That was totally awesome!

[max's grin is threatening to split her face open, and she lets out a whoop of victory before turning and holding her hand up for a high five.] That was amazing!

[rikku immediately grants her that high five, and nods.]

Yeah! We used to do things like that ‘round Home when people wanted to build new things. But it never gets old. We’ll totally have to do this again sometime.

You can always count me in for sure. [so much grinning.] I can't imagine this ever getting old.

It’s about time the cold went away! Seriously, I don’t really trust those tanning bed things and I’ve been dying to get outside for this.

[it turns out that grey reflective surface is santo after a good polish.]

Do I have to keep laying still? I think an ant crawled up my nose.

[rikku kind of rolls over (helloooo cleavage) and pulls her sunglasses just a bit down her nose.]

Just a sec! I’m in the middle of something very important.

[santo stifles a little bit of a laugh.]

If by important you mean showin' off to the network, yeah, but hey, don't let me cramp your style.

[oh snap rikku pulls off her sunglasses and glares at him a little.]

Excuse me, I am not “showing off!”

[she even does air-quotes with her free hand for that.]

You so are! Here, I'll prove it.

[and then santo rolls over so that he's supporting himself with his arms, looming above her and blocking the comm's view.] Okay, now go on!

[after giving a little scream, everything is suddenly dark because santo just blocks all of the sunlight. all of it. she’s pouting now, and pushes her sunglasses up to the top of her head.]

No, I’m done with the Network now. Can I have my sun back?

[there's another rocky rumble as santo rolls back over and the sunlight returns.]

Totally just proved my point. [he sounds so smug.]

Y'know, I don't really get movies like this. The guy's a total jerk to the girl, but then she goes running back to him the second he gets into trouble! If I were her, I'd just let him deal with it on his own.

[it's kind of obvious that she's no longer talking about johnny and baby]

I mean, who does he think he is, breaking her heart like that and then expecting her to come rushing back, huh? What a load of cred! [munch, munch] Guess she'll just have to be ready for next time.

[the video flicks on to show rikku’s garage, a place you all know and love! she’s wearing nothing appropriate for working with explosives, but who cares, she does what she wants. the comm is set on a stool a few feet away from her as she mixes this and stirs that into a large beaker. after a few moments she pauses, looking at the beaker happily.

and then the happy is gone, replaced with confusion and a bit of worry as the beaker begins to bubble. she takes half a step back and yells:]


[and there's a sudden crash as santo plows through a wall off camera, charging into view right as the mixture explodes. thankfully, an invulnerable rock body works very well as an impromptu blast shield.

when the smoke starts to clear, santo speaks:]

That. Was. Awesome. Are you okay?

[CROUCHED ALL BENEATH HIM. coughing a bit. finally straightens and looks... at her poor wall...]

My wall! Why'd you have to pick today to pretend to be that red-drink guy like on TV, huh?

The what guy--look, it was you or the wall and I made a good decision! That wall sucked anyway. It blocks your view of... uh... that street. I basically did you two favors!

[ALL THE SIGHING. about to say some witty retort. and then... a pause... she slowly looks up at him. questioning. so many questions.]

What's that... poking me?

Uh...I think it's a kneespike. I got a lot of spikes.

[she seems to accept this, and ducks out from beneath him to look at her wall. her back is to the comm so her voice is getting more distant by the second, but her last words are pretty clear before the recording times out:]

[The video feed from this comm is giving you a lovely few of absolutely nothing, since it is recording a darkened room with almost no lighting. There's enough to make out that this appears to be a workshop or garage of some kind, and that some big idiot with huge hands is fumbling around on a shelf and mumbling.]

Freakin' key, I know you're around here somewhere, or at least you better be...

[And suddenly, there’s the lightest sound of metal scraping against metal as someone picks up something. Just a split second later, there’s a yell:]
I got you! [And metal slamming against... rock? A startled yelp, and the metal thing drops to the concrete, clattering around. Someone is hissing and running, bumping into things as she goes.] Cred!

Hey!-[The intruder with the phone spins around, sounding ready for a fight, and-stops. Thanks to the AMAZING CAMERA WORK of this accidental video post and the whole pitch darkness, it's kind of hard to see anything except some blonde hair.] ...Rikku?

[Rikku’s voice comes from somewhere across the room, just as surprised as his.] –Santo? [As if she needs to ask that question. Her incredulity turns to annoyance so quickly, though!] What the vilg are you doing breaking into the garage?!

[The phone moves as Santo puts up his hands defensively.] I needed the extra key to the apartment! I got ported in and I wanted to surprise you but the door was locked so I came...here...and okay, maybe it wasn't a GOOD plan but it seemed like it at the time!

[Rikku finally manages to feel her way across the garage to flick on the light. The wrench she used to hit him over the head is on the ground at her feet and, well. Her hand is starting to turn a lovely shade of purple already. But she can’t ever stay mad at him, and her voice softens.] It was a pretty good plan, dork.

Yeah, I know, I just was saying it wasn't just in case you were mad at me. [And the comm is unceremoniously dropped for the moment so he can rush over and hug her.] I'll buy you a new wrench. Uh. Eventually.

[She lets him pick her up, wrapping one arm around him so she can grip at his stony neck with her good hand. Her bruising hand is hanging kind of useless by her side, but oh well. She... looks pretty close to tears, but is doing a good job of holding them back.] Too bad you can’t buy me a new hand, huh?

I'm sure someone can build you a robot hand that's even better than that one. And then we can thumb wrestle! [Being an idiot is keeping him from getting all what-passes-for-misty-eyed-when-you're-a-rock-man too, which is good for his reputation.]

Y’know, without Santo around, it’s hard to move all my stuff when I wanna reorganize. I’ve been thinking about where I wanna put everything since my birthday, but I haven’t actually done anything with it. I’m not really sure where to go from here.

'Cause Santo is really sad and won't even smile at my special outfit and he keeps sulking around and I'm worried about him. It's been going on since Rikki left, but really, it's been a month and... I'm all out of ideas. He isn't cheered up by anything.


So, help?

[the video starts up with a shot of... the underside of rikku's favorite red couch. not very interesting, really. but suddenly! the shot swings over to the legs of the table. as the holder of the camera moves forward, the sound of... nails clicking on tile is very hearable. there's a pause, and then a monkey's paw reaches forward to grasp a table leg.

all of a sudden, rikku's voice, followed by santo's:]

Bad Ghiki! Come back here with that! Cred, oui chaygo suhgao, kad ouin vinno pidd ujan rana!

Monkeys can't even use phones! [pause] ...Right? I mean I've never seen a monkey use a phone...

[like a shot, ghiki (who, by the way, is holding the comm in his mouth) scuttles up the table leg and swivels his head around. there are a few papers and things, but no food. he is disappoint. so he clambers across it, towards the kitchen.]

Frana tet ra ku?! E cruimt hajan ryja dyikrd res ruf du cdaym!

Rikku, you're slipping into Al Bhed crazytalk again. I don't think monkeys understand words!

[ghiki leaps off the table, and the comm flies out of his mouth on the way down. he squeals and plops in front of it. a large, orange-and-white monkey with an elaborate headdress is in your face. he gets to his back feet and paws at his face, shaking his head, a little bit shaken.

hearing the commotion, rikku slides into the room in her trainer dressphere, shaking one of her overlong sleeves off her hand so she can point at her pet monkey. santo kind of looms up behind her, just staring with his rock eyes.]

Bad monkey! You're supposed to come to me when I call, not run away! Running is the exact opposite of what you're trained to do.

Maybe we should set out some bananas for it or something. A banana trap.

[ghiki gives something of an apologetic chatter, grabs the comm in his monkey paw, and proceeds to run away again. the video times out.]

[so, rikku is in her superhero outfit again! she's just chillin' in her ~*new apartment*~ that she got when she turned eighteen i guess. ANYWAY. she's lying over the arm of a bright red couch, as in, her legs are dangling off and her head is on the cushions. the comm is on another cushion, and so this entire post is done with her face upside down. also, cleavage.]

So I've been thinkin'. How does someone who's bad--like, an evil villain-y type person--get that way? I mean, nobody is born evil, that's just silly. So it's gotta be something that happened to 'em, right?

[she stops to think for a second. mental exploration is a go.]

I mean, bad things have happened to me. Plenty of bad things have happened to my cousin and my friends. Heck, bad things happened all over Spira back when Sin was still around. But there were only a few really evil people, and I dunno why what happened to them made them, well I guess snap.

So, any thoughts, oh-so-unwilling citizens of the City?

I totally almost forgot that my birthday is coming up! I haven't even so much as glanced at a calendar in like, weeks. I definitely need to get myself a birthday dress, stat. Anybody wanna come with me? I could always use second and third and fifth opinions!

Oh--girls only. Boys always beat around the bush or just say, "Yeah, that looks fine" when we girls ask them if they like something we're wearing. And you know that's true!

[ooc; for as long as i've been playing her, rikku's birthday has been the same as my own. SO I NEVER FORGET.]

[video clicks on to show rikku all dolled up. she's smiling widely, and waves one newly fingernail-polished hand at the camera.]

Hey! Guess what? Santo said he'd take me out to a club tonight. A real club! We never had anything like that in Spira--not even after the Calm started.

[she turns her head for a second to listen to santo grumbling something from the next room, rolls her eyes, and then faces the recorder again, looking just as peppy. pulls the camera close to her face.]

I don't think Paine would like it much, but Yunie might have fun. Scratch that--if Yunie was with me, she'd definitely have fun! Maybe even Gippal. If it really is as fun as it's sounded, then maybe if they all show up, we can go together.

[more santo-grumbling. she waves her hand in his general direction.]

Yeah, okay, I'm ready!

[stands up, blows a kiss to the comm and gives a wink. a farewell wave, and the recording cuts.]
