Dey vants me to keep a log for dis contest, ja? Dot's vhat dis iz de schtart of. I iz Dimo, Navigator of de 4423, und my friends Maxim und Jenka iz coming vith me for our portion of de contest. Maxim lost hiz right hand many years ago, und op until a few months ago, had a nize mechanical vun dot took de place of de flesh. De mechanical vun haz schtopped vorking, zo ve iz going back to Mechanicsburg, our home, to ask our Mistress to give him a new vun, also of flesh. Ve's also going to zee if ve can find vun of our odder friends, Ognian, who ve hazn't zeen in a little over five years.

I haz written a letter to de Mistress already letting her know dot ve's coming, und it should be dere in enough time before ve iz to let tings be ready for us. I haz also chartered a schmall airship to take us as far as de edge of de Badlands, but de pilot of de ship vould not take us farther. From dere, it vill all be on foot, or horseback if ve's lucky und can find mounts. Ve should be back vell vithin de month.

Eh, science, magic, iz all de same sort of ting. Pipples doing tings vhat I doezn't understand vith lots of vires und chemicals und explosions. Zo yez, everyting gots a scientific explanation of zome zort. I might not vant to know about it, becauze iz a long und boring explanation, but if I gots to zit und listen to de Master rant, I zits und listens to de Master rant. Just zo long as I gets to pull the lever vonce in a vhile und keep up vith all of de new pipples vhat needs torturing.

Ho, zounds great! It vill be fon to vatch everyvun elze going around und trying to get schtuff done, und zee vhat dey's going to be up to. But I gots a goot plan, und I tink dot I might just get us de prize. I just gots to plot out how long it vill take to get from here to de Badlands...

*long sigh, and a couple of attempts to start a sentence that go nowhere*

...

Mamma? I...needs hyu help vith zometing. Und I needs to borrow a couple of tings from hyu.
theschmotone: (commander)
Hey, I gots an invitation to head on over to de Victoria II for vun of de cooks' borthdays. Anyvun vant to come vith me und do zome scouting to zee vhat their resources iz like? Iz an opportunity dot I tink iz hard to pass op.

Vill likely be best if a gorl comes vith me. Dot vay, it just looks like I iz bringing a date, und iz not all dot suspicious.

Ha! He vas right! Anko und Reno iz all dressed op!

Und Reno does look damned fonny in dot samurai skirt...
theschmotone: (eyes)
Zo, how does vun go about reqvesting a couple days of leave around here? Vould be for both me und Maxim. Ve's not plotting our next courze qvite yet, und if iz possible, it vould be much appreciated.
theschmotone: (introduction)
Zay, hyu here, Meester Holmes? Everybody elze zeems to be. Vas vondering if hyu might like to join me for a drink vun of dese nights. It vould be pleazant to finally meet, und I gots a couple of tings I vants to ask hyu about.
theschmotone: (stumped)
[voice][public]

I gots an open qvestion for de netvork: vhat does "honor" mean to hyu? Iz it de same or different den "duty" or "loyalty"? Does hyu try to live "honorably", und vhat does dot involve?

[voice][private/moderate to hack]

De more dot I hears about vhat a samurai iz und does, de more I iz reminded of de Jagerkin. Loyalty to de Master or Mistress until death, und a few odder tings here und dere, make me very curious. Perhaps ve could learn a ting or two from dem, und dey from us. I gots to admit, though, dot I finds dis "honor" ting both fonny und confusing...
theschmotone: (Default)
Zo, I hear dot hyu's de vun to talk to about helping to make sure dot our guy vins? Vhat hyu need help vith? I iz game for pretty much anyting, vithin reason.
theschmotone: (unconvinced)
Mebbe I iz showing my age a bit, but a plane race iz not all dot exciting if hyu izn't in it, und just vatching from de ground. Und even den, hyu probably izn't allowed to shoot de odder guys down or anyting. Dey takes all de fon out of tings dese days!

But at least dere vill be de chance to meet zome pipples dot I haz only talked to over de netvork!
theschmotone: (confused)
Hoy! Vhat's dot dere?

*rustling of paper*

Looks like a bord vhat's folded out of paper. Und it looks like dere's writing on de odder zide.

*more rustling of paper*

"Becauze of hyu melodic nature, de moonlight never misses an appointment"? Vhat in de hell iz dot suppozed to mean?!?

[ooc: Real fortune from a real fortune cookie, I swear. Check the Weird Fortune Cookies blog for more. I just liked this particular one, and so decided to use it here.]
theschmotone: (unconvinced)
Anodder day, anodder assassination. Vonder how much vorse de guy who's coming to take de Ivonan prezident's job iz going to be den de vun vhat just got bumped off?

Vun man iz dead. Vhatever. Life goes on.

Eidder vay, iz schtarting to smell more und more like var every day.
theschmotone: (maxim's favorite look)
"Fills de void in me effery night?" Heh. I vould stick vith de singing, if I vere hyu. Neidder of us iz much goot at poetry, I tink.

Zo, hyu gonna try to match dis Cao Cao up vith zomevun, den, zo he can have a "beeg manly man" in his life like hyu gots in yours?
theschmotone: (violin)
Hyu doezn't vant to hear my poetry, even if I had any. But zince dere's muzic being played und sung too, thought dot folks might like to hear zometing different.

Zounding better dese days, ja?

[ooc: Just pretend it's just the violin, sans piano or audience.]
theschmotone: (knowing grin)
Guess who just got a promotion, und better pay vith it?

This is just going to be a journal entry for any stray thoughts about background or whatnot that I have. Random thoughts, really, and not really of any consequence. It's mainly for my own use, but if you want to, feel free to comment.

*genuinely happy*

Und I gots zome real nize new scars to show from it, too!

[filtered to Maxim/medium to hack]

Hyu vanna go und take a shower for de forst time in a few days? Zounds like a goot celebration to me.

(Backdated to right before the storm hits)

*deep, hearty, evil laughter*

Yez! Dot schmells just right! Ve's in for a goot storm, I tell hyu! Lots of fon for everyvun!
theschmotone: (nonplussed)
Gott in Himmel, not having a shower for a veek or zo iz not going to be pleazant. I haz gone vithout for much longer vhen on a mission, but in zuch close quarters, scents iz going to be much stronger. Both my own, und odder pipples'. I vill deal, but iz not gonna be fon to be overvhelmed as zoon as I schteps outzide of de door.
