Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules!

PostSubject: Questionable Content    Tue Jun 14, 2016 9:28 pm

Trinity had been woken up early and there was work to be done, her and her parents had recorded a few songs and even made a new video, thankfully it was nearly done to begin with they just needed to add in a few more parts which was done with rather fast, and she had to practice for an hour for one of her instruments to make sure she kept up her skills, in the end though her agent came in to talk with her parents and the talks where always the same, him talking to her parents about the path that the group should take, the man, like most everyone else, unknowing that the group was just the one girl.

Walking upstairs to her room she opened the door and closed it as she looked at the papers the man had given her, Lyrics for the new songs that he thought would work out for the group in the new direction he said they should plan to go in once she and Myrna were a bit older, and even one or two for Alister to preform, though the list was oddly disproportionately heavy towards Nola and Myrna, and she wondered if that was due to design or lack of material for Alister at the time the Agent worked on crafting the images, he did mention they were a work in progress.

As she closed the door and walked over to her desk she let her hand pet Selenus who was given a place to rest in her room, he had full access to the internet from here, and talking her parents into letting her "buy" the security guard bot was easy enough considering her parents slight distrust of human ones, due to an incident a year ago concerning their last one.

"Selenu can we ask you to look over some lyrics for us? You are more knowledge able about words and phrasing then we are, and we hoped you would help us understand the lyrics to the new songs our Agent suggested Myrna and Nola learn". She asked the robot dog, as she sat down at the desk and turned it on to go over the lyrics and change any she didn't like the sound of or, with Selenus' help, that she didn't like the meaning of.

It had been a long, long time since Selenus had been inside such a fancy-looking establishment; In a way, it reminded him of back when he was living with Newman... Good times. Selenus found it incredibly easy to play the role of simple robotic bodyguard. After all, he had seen what regular K9 units behaved like, and as such he was able to imitate a lifeless version of himself with relative ease. He dreaded the day Nola's parents would find out he had a mind of his own, and a pretty disturbed on to boot; It would happen someday, but he certainly was not looking forward to it.

Indeed, Selenus felt an aura of nostalgia from the wealth that the little girl's house imposed. Nola's room, however, was somewhat of an oddity; In contrast to the rest of her abode, Nola's room was humble and resemblant of the sort of room a middle-class child would sleep in. Regardless, Selenus would choose to connect to the internet and lounge around for a bit. Little known fact about Selenus: He enjoys browsing the internet using his internal computers.


Interrupting a particularly interesting article read, Nola came back into her room after a few moments of absence and addressed Selenus. "Hm?" Selenus stood up and approached Nola, who was now sitting at her desk. "I'm no expert in lyric-writing, but I suppose I could give it a shot. What've you got?"

Nodding to Selenus agreeing she handed him the lyric pages, and no doubt even he could see the odd disparity between the amount of songs meant for Nola or Mryna to sing, to each other or solo, or just as a duet, in comparison to the very very VERY few songs made for Alister or even including the boy as a back up vocalist, Seemingly leaving him as only just being on stage to play in instrument, which was odd considering it was meant to be a Trio Idol group. "It seems the Lyrics are rather odd concerning the ones supposed to be sung between Myrna and Nola, while I don't understand one of the songs That was made for Alister...Especially since it seems that a copy of it was made for Myrna and Nola to sing together".

Her voice calm and as monotone as always as she waited to hear what Selenus thought about the lyrics. The lyrics themselves.....well they where...Questionable at best....The song she was talking about that had Myrna and Nola singing to each other seemed to be where the lyrics could quite easily suggest the two where romantically involved with each other, while the one that was made for Alister and then turned into a duet as well for the two females in the group was named, "fuck the pain away" This one being the one Trinity didn't seem to understand.

"The agent said we needed to tap into the market that was obviously a large part of our demographic, though he said he guessed that only Myrna and Nola could pander to that demographic" she tilted her head as she tried to think about why he would say that, but she couldn't really understand to be honest, thus why she was asking Selenus for his input on the lyrics.

If he looked through the rest of the lyrics Selenus would see more of the same, the songs for the girls seem to be more adult then the girls where, more provocative and more seductive then a fourteen year old should ever be portrayed as, while the only other one for Alister seemed to make the boy seem....rather...Maturely Adventurous considering the lyrical material.

There are many terminologies that one could use to describe what Selenus felt in that exact moment. "Absolute and complete disgust." Would be the most appropiate though. He took a deep breath, knowing what he had to do in front of a situation like this.

"Nola..." Selenus calmly began as he grabbed the papers and put them aside. "I really don't think I should be the one to tell you this, but... these songs imply certain subjects that you should not be handling at your age. These songs are implying that... you and Myrna would be doing things that only people who love each other very much would do. As for Alistar... these songs depict him as an... overly lively boy. I honestly don't think you want to sing these." Selenus was using the most innocent terminology he could, hoping she'd get the hint. If her parents hadn't had the talk with her yet though... may the universe have mercy on Selenus for what Nola would interpret.

Listening to Selenus Trinity only tilted her head as he began explaining what he thought was wrong with the songs and why he thought she shouldn't do them, it was odd really, but Selenus was better with words then her, and his access to a database was invaluable for such a simple task, but his reasoning was what was odd to her, or rather his wording, and she thought about what he said for a moment sitting there in silence her head tilting from one side to the other as she stared at him with her unblinking gaze. She was like this for a few moments as she processed what he said and then finally after a while she stopped tilting her head and blinked normally.

"But shouldn't siblings love each other very much? we know if we were not one we would love our siblings very very much, we are lucky to be with them all the time like we are" she replied to his first point as she looked at him apparently missing the whole point of what he meant as she sat there the perfect image of innocence, then she moved on to his second point.

"As for Alister's songs...Aren't males commonly depicted as Lively and outgoing? How could a song about such be something he would not want to sing?" she was a bit puzzled, but she figured best to ask Selenus on his reasons after all it was best she learned from him about this as he had mentioned he might not always be around since he did have his own things to do.

"Our agent suggested that these songs would help us reach a different section of our demographic and may help with over all performance, What do you think? And also why are those points bad when a lot of other media says that siblings caring for each other, and adventitious males are common?"

"Thats... not... what I meant..." Selenus trailed off. Was this really happening? Maybe he was biased, but he definitely did not see himself as any sort of parental figure material, much less see himself as someone properly equipped to handle this. While he had the benefit of having no sex drive and therefore being entirely unbiased to the subject, only siding with factual information, it was also having no sex drive that led to him having problems fully understanding the way in which these matters affected people. It was incredibly clear to him that Nola was way too young to sing about these subjects, but wouldn't most children her age have had the talk by now? In fact, if his little theory was correct, she'd only have a few years... Nah. Selenus tried hard not to think about that.

Hold the phone, what did she just say? "Different section of our demographic"? What kind of demographic for a child idol band would want these lyrics? Unless..

"Nola, this agent of yours... who is he? Do you know him personally? Do your parents know him?"

Trinity was a tad confused on what he meant then if he didn't mean that, it was a real puzzle to her as she tilted her head once more as she looked at the mechanical canine waiting for his clarification, one she expected to come immediately but instead Selenus ended up trailing off and going quiet, she guessed maybe he was accessing a database? but then again the only other time he had done something like this was after he had run into Tatsui and her in conversation and he lied about how he met the boy, so was he thinking up a lie again? But that didn't make sense, So she didn't bother continuing down that line of inquiry in her head, instead she figured that he was trying to present the information in a way she would better understand due to her apparent failure to understand the first time.

Then he seemed to change the subject to her agent and she tilted her head once more, did that have anything to do with the previous conversation? she honestly didn't know but she decided he must have been gathering information on the man to figure out a way to explain the lyrics? That was the best she could come up with, so she decided in that case answering him was okay, besides it's not like there was anything wrong with him knowing that information.

"Our mom and dad hired him a few years ago, to help find opportunities that they might miss as my parents work as our Managers, The agent has done a very good job So far, except for an incident a while ago involving a Bodyguard he hired for us. The Bodyguard had then attempted to take advantage of his position and access to us, after the issue was settled he apologized to our parents and they kept him on" she said as she answered his question.

"All and all we think he is a nice man, and seems to be very interested in the us, he insists on coming to every concert and to film them from a fans point of view at times to build publicity, though my parents have forbidden any filming of us at home or attempts to get images of the whole group that are not approved, We believe his name is Markus Billen, Though at some point he changed his name we think but we never asked about it and we call him Jimmy now..." she answered as usual with total honesty as she sat there her voice a monotone and her face expressionless as ever

Really?

Really?!

What kind of TMZ bullshit...

"Nola." Selenus stated firmly. "I need you to tell me what happened with that bodyguard, and what exactly you mean by "Access to us". I can't exactly tell you why but... just trust me when I sayb that this is of incredible importance. If you trust me, then please let me know what happened."

Trinity didn't quite understand the urgency that Selenus seemed to be asking with but she did trust him and she didn't see any reason to not tell him so she thought back on it to remember exactly what happened, which was quite easy to do after all, it was quite vivid to the little girl, and she had found it quite odd at the time what the man had asked her to do. It didn't seem like normal behavior to her anyway and really the best she could figure at the time was he wanted to teach her something.

"Well by access to us We mean that he was always around when no one else was, as he was hired to keep us safe, he was trusted to not do anything to us That would harm us, and We suppose he technically didn't, he would do such odd things though Like ask us to pose and then he would take pictures. He told us he knew a lot of people that would be happy to get pictures like the ones he was taking, so we didn't see a problem with it" she explained to the robot dog as she sat there tilting her head as she looked at him.

Selenus was absolutely, completely, thoroughly and whole-heartedly speechless. He always knew these kinds of things happened around the world (unfortunately), but like many prospects of tragedy in life, the magnitude of it all wouldn't really hit him until he went through it first-hand (Or second-hand, in this case.)

Absolutely clueless as to what to say or do in this situation, Selenus picked off the knives on his hips and laid them on the ground one by one. Afterwards he proceeded to do the same with the knives under his paws, until his body was completely devoid of (accident-prone) weapons. Finally, he approached Nola, propelled his frontside upwards and embraced her in the closest thing to a hug that he could pull off. It was weird, but... hopefully she'd understand what he was trying to do.

Trinity watched as Selenus started to take knives off his body, she was a bit puzzled by the reaction he was showing, her explanation wasn't fully over ether she had simply stopped to recall everything, though as she sat there thinking on what else he had done, as Selenus had asked her to, the robotic canine moved closer to her and did the closest thing he could to a hug and she was greatly puzzled, but she hugged back gently as she sat there with him still trying to remember everything the man had done so she could tell him. Finally she did manage to remember a bit more and she started to talk once more in her monotone.

"It turned out he wanted exclusive pictures for the fan club, he was trying to get pictures of the group which was against the rules, thankfully our parents caught him trying to upload them on his lap top one day and so none of the pictures. He was having us doe poses in our new costumes for the next concert, He constantly kept asking us where the other two where because he wanted a group picture, and We told him they were with out parents" she continued her explanation as she basically reviled it wasn't anything horribly wrong, she had simply not realized what Selenus was asking her.

Tilting her head a bit more as she hugged the robot dog she couldn't help but ask "Your not going to ask us for pictures that would ruin the next concert are you?"

...

This fucking child.

As badly as Selenus wanted to berate Nola for worrying him past the point of disarming himself for a pseudo-hug, he felt it would be counter-intuitive to insist that Nola open up to him, only to then nag her off for doing exactly what he insisted she gather the will to do.

"No, I'm not going to. I simply... misunderstood what you were trying to say. But still..." He'd break the "hug" if you could call it that, landing back on the ground. "Trust me when I say that this is not the kind of direction that you want to take. I've seen - well, read about - a lot of idols who take this route and end up leading lives without any sort of redeemable intrinsic value. All they do is defy anyone who opposes them simply because they can and are too afraid of ever being remotely below anyone. Y'ever seen in movies or TV shows how some famous people go "Do you know who I am?"? That's the kind of person this would turn you into." This level of megalomania seemed to be a common trope among large quantities of idols who took the crooked-edge route. And while it was certainly possible to summerge oneself in these topics without letting it get to one's head, Selenus seriously didn't want to take that chance with Nola. That, or maybe he was pulling excuses to justify his denial of Nola taking this route out of pure discomfort. Either way, the point stood.

She looked at the robotic hound as he replied and she nodded, glad to hear he wasn't going to, she liked having Selenus around and she didn't want to find out that the dog was trying to simply use her. Then again he really had no reason to in the end so she looked at the robo-doggy as she petted him as he got back down on the floor once more "Okay, We believe you, Thank you for being my friend though" she then listened to what he was saying about the music and the like and she tilted her head a bit as she thought about what he was saying, she didn't quite understand it all, bu she understood what he meant in a broader sense of the matter.

Thinking about what he said though she couldn't help but think on her coming expiration date, did her life as it was have any intrinsic value? Had she really achieved anything? That thought brought on her thoughts about wht she would leave behind once she was gone. Thinking on it more she looked at Selenus "Selenus....What do you think will make people be remembered?" she asked as she looked at him "Does someones life need to leave a mark for it to be remembered?".

Trinity's sudden and slightly off-topic philosophical question would leave Selenus confused for a few seconds. "The truth... is yes. You do need to leave a mark to be remembered after you're gone." Selenus would pause for a moment to let that simple fact of life sink in. "Yet... if you haven't left any marks on this world, then you haven't lived. Everything we do in our lifetimes leaves a mark, small as it may be. It's all about leaving a mark that's big enough; The bigger your marks, the longer you'll be remembered." It was weird, going back into his old philosopher-like vocabulary, yet at the same time slightly nostalgic; He hadn't answered these kinds of questions in a long time. "I'd say you've left a huge mark already, however. You, your sister and your brother have a wide variety of highly successful songs, an adoring fanbase, and lots of caring friends. Meanwhile, what've I got? I have a serial production number, a series of acts I can't let myself be accredited for, and a father figure who, let's face it, I'm probably never going to see again." He was so caught up in stressing his point that he didn't think of how he hadn't yet told Nola about that last bit.

Trinity sat there and listened to Selenus answer her question, his words actually struck a little fear into her, though her expressionless face didn't betray that feeling, she simply sat and listened. She was glad he wasn't trying to sugar coat the answer and was telling her truthfully, Even if it could possibly be something that might scare her or make her sad. It was a truth she had suspected but hadn't fully decided if it was in fact the truth or not, hearing Selenus' answer though, the answer from a source that she knew wasn't lying and had no reason to lie to her made it some how easier to accept, though it was still a chilling thought to her how everything she was trying to do could be so easily forgotten if she hadn't simply done enough.

Then Selenus continued on and mentioned how she had left a rather large mark as it stood and she tilted her head as he listed off the achievements, or rather the marks, that she and her "siblings" had made. She nodded a bit at this as she then tilted her head as he recounted his own mark and she couldn't think of anything else to do but to simply slip off her chair and hug the robot dog "You've got us" she said as she hugged him, Though she was wondering now, how could she help him find his father figure? he seemed sure he wouldn't see him again, but Trinity believed there was always some hope.
