Azure Wyrm

Recommended Posts

OOC I'm still writing the update, sorry. A Mormon missionary came over, and instead of preaching, we started playing Dungeons and Dragons every day. He offered, and some of the players already accepted (more information can be found on Discord) his offer- to become a secondary DM for Azure Wyrm so updates come in more consistently!
I haven't gotten to play someone ELSE's roleplay, especially in person, since 1996 so I kind of stopped everything everywhere to be able to game with him. The update here shouldn't take much longer. Thanks for your patience.

OOC: As I recall, Vulpine has skunk eyes, which do not have very good vision, especially at a distance. It's also night for Vulpine, but skunks are nocturnal, so that doesn't affect hir much. So Vulpine can see, but not well.

 

ASTER

 

As parts of the tall organic fell down and into the hot light, Aster half-opened its wings, ready to jump in to the air again if something happened to the tall organic it was in. These things could fall over. The slime suddenly was suddenly aware of that piece of information, dredged up from the memories of one of the organic creatures it had consumed. Aster saw Small land on a branch below it and chirped a greeting, but before it could decide anything further, the new slime nearly crashed into it. Aster almost grabbed the small slime with its flexible front claws to stop it from moving again, but unfortunately stop itself as it realized it needed them to keep its grip on the tall organic. It was strange, though. The new slime had definitely had trouble avoiding Aster that time. Was its vision just not good, or . . .

 

Vision. Something clicked in the slime's brain, and, after concentrating for a second, Aster exhaled thick plumes of purple smoke towards the new slime, altered from the red it had been until just then to make it less threatening, hopefully anyway, until the new slime was completely engulfed by it. Hopefully without being able to see anything, the new slime wouldn't be able to use that incredible speed of its, and it didn't seem big enough to be threatening any other way. Aster was smart enough to realize that this tactic had a chance of backfiring on it, and it didn't really want make an enemy of any other slimes, but it simply couldn't have something darting around too fast to be seen. How could you trust something like that? Keeping a close eye on the puff of smoke to make sure the new slime didn't dart out of it, Aster edged over to one of the other things stuck on the limb of the organic, and, after making sure it was organic, began eating it. The slime didn't want any more of the other thing. Too bitter.

 

VULPINE

 

Vulpine tried to force the organic morsel further inside of itself so the slime could digest it faster, but it didn't seem to want to go. The creature had very small ends beneath it that scuttled hard against the bottom of the slime's mouth and teeth, pulling the organic creature backwards at the same time as Vulpine tried to pull it forwards, and at the same time creating a feeling that Vulpine found . . . very strange. In conjunction with the pain on top of its snout, this made Vulpine more uncomfortable than ever. The slime lashed its head and neck around in an effort to get the organic in its mouth to stop scuttling around without having to let it go, finally by sheer luck landing with the top of its head up against the ground, which finally seemed to stop it. Now that the organic that it had caught was still, Vulpine was able to swallow it before the slime became completely numb and motionless once again.

@Tellin: (unlocked: foxtail weed) The bendy organic finally felt like it began to crush itself under the slime, after it slurped on top of it. Absorbing that what was touching it made even more of it, the altered flavor part, fall on top of the slime, but that too was absorbed. It was harder, and broke apart as it was absorbed, but it had little points that were surprisingly hard, even though the rest of it wasn't. Wait, something else was there, below, maybe hidden within this flavor. Ah! Nope, it was gone. What was it? Where did it go?

 

@Venus: (unlocked: pine needles, bark, pine nut) The thing the slime found was certainly food; it was organic and durable, dense and light. The outermost layer peeled off in the best description as the slime absorbed into it, or maybe it just absorbed enough that the scales eventually weakened and came off on their own. Either way, the slime had dug quite far into the thing, and it broke in half.

Trying to chase one of the pieces as it kept contact with the slime but rolled away, proved a good idea. Something sweet, sticky, and wet was found on the ground, on top of some other piece of organic that felt soggy and had things moving in it.

 

@Ipunch: (unlocked: bile, bubblegum ball, sugar gland) Nope! The slime's anger didn't mean much of anything, except the slight tilting of the canister, making its opening closer to the side instead of top. Some of the organic poured over the slime and seemed to disappear into nothing, while it still smooshed its gooey not-actually-a-claw claw at the inorganic. Then the slime felt something else. It had pushed itself out of the inorganic enclosure, and felt itself slurping out, scraping along the sharp edges on its way down and out.

 

@Vulpine: (unlocked: Indian scorpion chitin) The slime didn't know how long it took to wake up, but when it did, it was painfully bright. The slime had trouble seeing when it was bright like this, compared to how it could see when it was dark. Looking around, it did see some places that looked dark, so hopefully one of those places could be gotten to. There might even be some sort of organics hidden there, which it now felt the need to look for. Something strange near the slime that it hadn't noticed before looked wet. It looked like it might taste good, whatever it was. It was thinner than it was long, and circular. The top of the thing had a hole in it.

 

@Aster: (unlocked: pear fruit) This organic was a yummy one, as it tasted sweet, was soft, and very juicy. Did Small have access to this? The up-wet continued coming down, and though it didn't have an effect on the slime's purple smoke, it did have an effect on the hot light. The up-wet got worse, as each drop was bigger and colder, and there were more of them coming. Hitting the slime in the face, it thought that maybe it might be best to just wait it out.

OOC @ Zeditha: Right. Well, a lot of you are in college and dealing with finals right now, so it's understandable. Me, I've got stuff going on (trying to move again, really need to) so I'm more concentrating on that than anything else.

Curious about why the brown was making the shiny melt, the slime moved closer to investigate. Not wanting to move all over the white stuff, the slime maneuvered to where it could easily poke at it with its thunder. Perhaps the shiny couldn't bare to touch the brown? Or was it something else? The slime would need to think things over with this.

@Dewdrop: As the slime got closer, its poor vision revealed nothing spectacularly new to it. The shiny was brown too, and had spread out. But it wasn't accessible for some reason, almost as if an invisible skin protected the slime from poking at it. The slime had seen something like this earlier, that made it look cylindrical... was that the shape of this inorganic skin-like thing?

It was confused. Why couldn't it poke at the shiny now? It wanted to poke the shiny, however it was interested in the... cylindrical thing? It poked with its thunder, trying to determine what the inorganic thing was and what purpose it held.

@Dewdrop: The hardened invisible skin stealing the melted shiny brown didn't move. It didn't move at all? Poking from other angles as the slime moved around it in circles poking over and over didn't seem to do much, but after doing this a lot, the inorganic the slime was walking around on seemed to raise itself up, and the melted shiny brown moved, still protected by the invisible.

   Tellin lay thoughtfully on the organic, letting the time pass and lingering on the flavor of it. The combination of hard and soft was new, and the fleeting flavor had him intrigued, but he was so tired... What was that flavor, anyway? Why did it go away so fast? Did he just absorb it really quick?.....

   Tellin's thoughts wandered. He stopped wondering about the organic, and briefly stopped worrying about food, too. He simply lay there at the organic's core, its remaining thin parts laying around him, and he simply waited for his bloated feeling to pass. First the sticky organic, and then a nonorganic sticky, and then... was it the fluffy organic after that? He couldn't remember well enough. He ate a lot though.

   The slime felt a prickling sensation along his surface, what he could only vaguely perceive as his "outside", but it didn't alarm him. Maybe it was just a bit of the bendy organic he absorbed. So, feeling complacent and happy, he scrunched up his amorphous form into a tighter ball and let his thoughts meander into nothingness... it was almost like he was thinking, but was no longer aware of it...

   It became very dark and still...

   ((Tellin is taking a nap. The prickling I kept vague, just in case I need more absorbed matter first, but I'm trying to combine iron rust and ghost mantis "decor" into back spines, so he looks like a ball of flaky dead leaves. Or, if I can combine one element with a grown-in one later, I can do only one or the other, or try growing something else.))

Oh? That was interesting. The slime turned its attention to the melted shiny brown as it moved. It didn't know it could do that! Was it just the shiny melted brown that could move or could the regular brown move as well? This had captured the slime's attention as it looked around trying to find nonshiny brown to see and poke with its thunder.

OOC @ Squirrel: Can Tellin see? Also, Tellin did sleep, but I don't remember it being aware that such was a thing, so I'm having it being perceived as something appearing out of no where or time travel (which it is not capable of thinking... basically its surprised)

 

-----------------------------------------

 

@Dewdrop: The shiny brown started running away, digging into the inorganic! Oh no! All this work and it escapes? Luckily the slime was close enough that it might be able to catch it. The inorganic the slime was travelling on became even shinier when the shiny brown touched it, almost like the shiny brown was leaving something behind as it dug. The air began moving, and the slime could feel it. It wasn't pushing the slime too badly, at least not enough to force it to go away from its potential meal.

 

@Tellin: All of a sudden, the slime became aware of hot air being forced against it, but it didn't feel anywhere near as susceptible as it did before, or at least not to moving air. At least not on its top. Then the slime felt something even hotter, and wetter, and slimier, move it upwards and to the side. What the heck was this tough thing that just lifted it? It was gone. It could still feel the slime that was deposited on it though.

   ((Technically Tellin never grew any eyes, but I checked the Big File and it said he had sight, so I'm assuming he can see? Also he doesn't know what sleep is, I simply tried to describe it in the way I perceive it happening, and that's how I feel right before I fall asleep (although the thinking-but-not-thinking came from when I'm half-asleep.))

   Tellin was confused by the sudden hot thing. He felt as though something was on top of him, but it was also blocking the movement of the hot thing; it didn't stop its heat though. It was almost unbearable, similar to the stinging liquid he had first consumed, but the heat was different, somehow. Tellin was still drowsy, and believed he needed more time to digest, so he oozed closer to some of the bendy organics' remains and lay still for a moment, before realizing that he suddenly wasn't full anymore.

   Hm? That wasn't right. He remembered being bloated, lying underneath the bendy organic he had partly absorbed. Fullness didn't go away that fast.

   The hot thing then touched the slime and left something wet behind, and he recoiled in distaste about being bothered. He didn't know what the thing was that just tugged on him, but it wasn't comfortable! So Tellin used some of his newfound energy - probably from digesting so fast? - and oozed a little ways away, driven in the opposite direction of his new slimy spot, before stopping and reaching up pincers first to check and see if the thing followed him.

OOC in 2 weeks (a little over 2 weeks) I move into my new house (those on Discord know this) and I can write then. I know it's been awhile; just I can't concentrate at this apartment. 98 F degrees with no air conditioner (previous guy who lived here died and the place wasn't cleaned right, the smell got into the air conditioner which is why I can't use it. Landlord doesn't want to admit there's a smell since it would mean having to replace the entire machine for someone already past their lease date and leaving to begin with).

So don't worry; I will write more and have a lot of ideas, just I can't get them out while I live here still. August 1 I'll have a new post up unless there's a problem with the internet account transfer, but there shouldn't be.

Chappie

 

 

"Cold not nice ... Food is flowing with me ..." 

The glob follows the flow of the water and waste until it can cling to a solid edge. There, it will stay. It plans to make contact with waste items, hopefully including fresh prey, that flow through the sewer water and consume them in the safety of the dark, damp sewer. The dark feels like home, but this area may be too cold to stay for too long. 

"Must move to warmer area ... Need mobility ..."

 

((Sorry I haven't responded until now! I'm looking forward to seeing where Chappie ends up :) ))
