    Enani: Well if you would be more careful about your cholesterol, we could get real butter.

    Enani: Nobody asked you to "clean my plate," Larry! Pig...

    Larry: Right, because you seem to think that it's only appropriate to do something nice if you're asked. Well gee, maybe I was trying to be helpful. Did you ever think of that?!?!

    With a sarcastic tone, Enani said "Oh, how stupid of me! Thank you, Oh Benevolant Boar-man, for eating my food. I am not worthy of your kindness--" Enani then abruptly switches to a dead-pan tone, and finishes with "--so please, no more "help" with my food. You can't even butter your toast on the right side...

    Larry sighs. "I'm tired of your attitude, Enani. Why don't you take your margarine and just get out of here.. I mean seriously, what kind of a name is Enani anyway?"
    "And what if I do?" Enani replies. "Don't come crying to me if you die of a heart attack."

    Now in a raised voice Larry says, "And if I don't go crying to you, you will be whining about that too! You would say something like"

    Larry finishes his thought with a mocking tone.

    "Why is the ambulance here? Why didn't you tell me Larry? Your supposed to let me know, you can't do anything right."

    Enani: "That sounds about right, Lawrence of Arabia. Oh, sorry, forgot you don't like being called that."

    CotC

    An ambulance backs through the glass front of the cafe in which our characters were most recently sharing banter and breakfast. A white coat bursts out the rear doors of the vehicle.

    Dr. Steve: Did somebody call a doctor?

    Enani: Glass everywhere! I'm bleeding!

    Dr. Steve: Just as I thought, I'll get you some medical attention, right away!

    Larry: No! Enani! You can't be hurt!

    Larry rushes to Enani's side and tries to put pressure on the wound.

    Enani: OW! What are you doing?! I'm covered in glass shards!

    Dr. Steve: Sir, please get out of the way! This individual clearly needs expert care!

    Larry: Don't touch Enani, you freak!

    Dr. Steve: Sir, if you will not let me properly administer care to this individual, I will have to pacify you.

    Dr. Steve unholsters his taser.

    Larry: Enani! Everything's going to be OK... BZZZZZZZZTeuaghghghghhghghhhh

    Enani: I'm still bleeding!

    Dr. Steve: "Now then, let's get you to some proper facilities--"

    Larry: "GET AWAY FROM HIM YOU QUACK!"

    Enani: "Like you could do any better, Larry. Just give me some alcohol to soothe the pain and I'll be set."

    Dr. Steve: "We have more effective means of easing your pain, sir."

    Enani: "Thanks, but I'll stick with liquid courage."

    Dr. Steve: "I'm afraid you can't drink any alcohol before--"

    Enani: "STAY AWAY YOU QUACK!"

    Dr. Steve: "You're a lunatic."

    Larry: "I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so."

    Dr. Steve: "I was talking about you."

    Ping slaps his forehead.

    [MUTE OFF]

    Jessie: "What's wrong? Why isn't he answering us?"

    Joseph: "I don't know. It seems like he knows we're here, but he just keeps gesturing frantically without saying anything."

    Frank: "Ping... Ping, can you hear us? Do you understand what I'm saying?"

    Ping: "!!!"

    Bill: "It's hopeless."

    (Non story: Hrm, the last few posts have been sort of against the point of the silent treatment idea, but if it gets people writing, I can't complain. I can always try it again with #2 some other time.)

    (CotC)

    Enani: Stay away from me!

    Enani starts running away.

    Dr. Steve: Come back here!

    Dr. Steve gives chase.

    Larry: Wait!

    Larry follows Dr. Steve and Enani.

    (Note: Remember to try not to resort to physical fighting for this please.)

    Hand-to-Hand (HH)

    RULES: Continue this conflict by any physical means only -- this is an attempt to better describe physical fight scenes. Ideally, there will only be two characters (I'll leave gender up to whomever wants to define them), as more will lose the focus of description.

    Alex chases Jordan on one of the rooftops of Reme City. The full moon shines down on Alex pinning Jordan against a wall. With a wet crack, Alex snaps Jordan's arm, and Jordan screams. Jordan shoves Alex away, and with a quick shake, Jordan's arm is set back in place. The two know that, in Reme City, injury is indeterminate, and anything can happen.

    It begins to rain.

    Jordan strikes Alex across the face with a backhanded slap. Alex stands firm, turning slowly to glare at Jordan. Jordan dances in place, floating and flickering in stance, grinning like an idiot. When Jordan attempts to snap-kick Alex square in the stomach, Alex's arms flow around Jordan's leg and grab hold. Alex's arms spin and send Jordan flying into the air. Jordan, however, lands gracefully, looks up at Alex, and motions to come forth.

    (Silent #1)

    Ping stares at Jessie, Joseph, Frank and Bill, who seem to mock with their flapping mouths without uttering an audible word.

    "If only I could read lips!" Ping says. "Or read what their expressions were saying. Why do I have to be so dumb?"

    (CotC)

    Larry continues to chase after Dr. Steve, who is trying to catch Enani.

    "Stop, Enani!" Larry says. "You have cancer!"

    "What?!" Enani says.

    "Gotcha!" Dr. Steve says.

    "I have cancer?" Enani asks.

    "No," Larry replies. "I just wanted you to stop."

    "Damn you!" Enani said.

    GAWSH, Gebohq, you can't even spell right. Your name should be spelled "E-W-O-K."

    That's right, I just called you short and an obvious marketing ploy to get kids hooked on SW. v_v

    Jordan and Alex stare down each other, waiting for the other to execute the final lethal strike...


    (Silent Treatment #1)

    "Well if that's how it's going to be, I'll just shut up," said Ping. He sat down in silence as he watched the others not making a single sound...


    (Clash of the Crazies)

    Time appears to stop for everyone.

    "My words would end up becoming literal," Larry thought to himself...

    And Geb, why are you so terrible at acting confrontational? Just stop replying to this thread already!
