The Eggbaby Meme
 

"Each of your Eggbabies has a built in computer which registers the amount of care-- or lack of care-- it's given. These readings will determine your grade. As you can see the babies exhibit a wide range of emotions and expressions in need. It's your job to fill those needs."
How to:
✦ Leave a comment with your character's name and fandom. Others will reply
✦ Congratulations, the two of you are now in charge of an Eggbaby. You can pretend it's for class or, for those who aren't in school, you can assume the baby is some sort of important mission. It is your job to take care of and keep the baby happy. If you drop the baby, you fail. You can not turn it off. Remember, this is a joint effort. This is a very important assignment that determines if you pass/fail the class or save the world.
✦ You can RNG a number between 1 and 8 to find out what kind of situation you're in.
✦ Good luck!

Options:
1. Other plans. You had other plans but now you aren't sure if you can do them because of this baby. Try to convince your partner to do you a favor or else you'll have to drag the baby along with you.
2. Broke baby. Something is seriously wrong with this baby. It won't stop crying no matter what you do and you really wish this thing had an off switch.
3. Lost baby. What do you mean where's the baby? Don't you have it? Wait, you mean, you don't? FU-- WHERE'S THE BABY?!
4. Perfect baby. Your baby never cries. In fact, it doesn't really do much of anything. Wow, this project sure is easy! . . . Dude, it keeps staring at me.
5. Not my baby. This isn't your baby but you're watching it for a friend until they get back from that super important meeting. They've been gone all day and you hope they'll get back soon.
6. Twins. You're taking care of your baby and someone else's baby. (bonus option: you're taking care of another baby and another and another and another. . .)
7. MY BABYYYY! What the hell did you do? Your baby is broken. You've failedyour assignment. Maybe you can put it together and no one will ever notice or try to steal someone else's baby.
8. Crack baby. Roll again, combine prompts, or make up your own scenario.

[ Rei was fine with catching confetti with chopsticks. Rei was fine with passing thirty beans from one plate to another, one by one. Rei was fine with a lot of Luna's ridiculous training ideas. until now.

'it's to increase teamwork', her foot. the only thing it's accomplished thus far is make her want to set their arcade headquarters on fire. she likes to think she's pretty good with children on the whole, but this by no means applies to malfunctioning egg-baby things, as this experience has made exceedingly clear.

why won't it stop crying. she's tried holding it, rocking it, petting it -- all, admittedly, with some degree of reluctance because Minako is watching and this is already embarrassing enough, but it should've rightly been enough to get it to shut up.

nope.

after ten straight minutes of exasperation, she shoves the baby into Minako's hands.
] You know what? You fix it.

/dead laughing i love it

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:15 am (UTC)(link)
[Minako... isn't that good with children. Oh, she knows how to be nice to them, of course; she's not cruel, and besides, it's a matter of image and publicity. But she doesn't really relate to them well. And she doesn't always react to them well.

And when they aren't even a child, but an egg, she really doesn't have the patience.]


I never agreed to this in the first place. [This is true. Granted, she's ignoring the fact that, technically, neither had Rei. 'Just do it!' from Luna isn't exactly agreement from anyone else. She should have kept up her streak of staying away from Crown.]

Find something else to entertain it.
forthepresent: (huff)

they are such failures :")

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:18 am (UTC)(link)
[ you are taking that egg baby, Minako, whether you like it or not. Rei's not exactly becoming more agreeable by the second here. ] I didn't, either. And isn't entertaining your job? You should do it.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ eh?)

they are XD

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:20 am (UTC)(link)
There's nothing for us to learn from this. [This is said a bit more sharply than strictly necessary. They've awakened their senshi powers, and besides, how would this help?]
forthepresent: (grouchyface)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:23 am (UTC)(link)
[ she's scowling so hard by now that her face might never fully be able to smooth itself back out. ] Tell that to Luna, not me.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ what are you even...?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:29 am (UTC)(link)
[Minako gives a nod towards the egg as her answer.]

It's crying again. [Guess who's not moving towards it?]
forthepresent: (Default)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:30 am (UTC)(link)
If you're not taking it, I'm throwing it on the floor and telling Luna you did it.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ prayer with a lot on my mind)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:37 am (UTC)(link)
[As annoying as it is... Minako reluctantly has the feeling they should be handling it better than to break it intentionally. Especially when it represents a baby.]

Let's not do that yet.
forthepresent: (ohh burn)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:39 am (UTC)(link)
In that case, here. [ and then she takes hold of Minako's hand, actually presses it open, and places the egg on top of it. because apparently that's the only way you can get Minako to do anything. ]
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ don't do anything strange)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:41 am (UTC)(link)
Hey-! [But it's too late, as Minako looks half-panicked between the egg in her hand, and the girl who put it there.]

This is your assignment, too! Your mission.
forthepresent: (failing to be impressed)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:43 am (UTC)(link)
[ there is something kind of delightful about that look on Minako's face. ] Aren't you the duty-bound one here? That sort of talk isn't going to work on me.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ what are you even...?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Hey, it's supposed to work when she needs it to.

Which, apparently, does not include crying eggs. Very gingerly, Minako makes sure to hold it carefully.]


I'm pretty sure this isn't part of the test anyway. We should get it fixed before we go on any further.
forthepresent: (yup u high alright)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:52 am (UTC)(link)
I wouldn't be surprised if it is. You weren't around for Luna's other forms of training, you wouldn't get it. [ and anyway, where do you go to fix an egg baby... ]
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ eh?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:53 am (UTC)(link)
[You get Luna back over here to fix it. But she's not sure how to contact her right now, so they're still stuck.]

The papers and the wind machine? I remember doing that before. [Their past lives.]
forthepresent: (u high)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 09:56 am (UTC)(link)
[ Luna has the tendency to disappear when it's least convenient. Rei is pretty sure that's intentional, too. ] And the beans. And the potato eating. [ this reminiscing would be much more enjoyable if the baby stopped crying for three seconds. ] Look, can you make it stop?
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ what are you even...?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 09:59 am (UTC)(link)
[Don't shake it, don't shake it, don't shake it.

Minako manages to force herself to dangle the egg gently instead. This is supposed to work.

It doesn't. She lets herself give it a dirty look, and a sigh.]


You're better at this anyway. You work with kids all day. You try.
forthepresent: (yup u high alright)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 10:00 am (UTC)(link)
[ dangling it. really? she's going to need to remind herself to never let Minako near a real kid. ] Nice try, but I've been trying for the last ten minutes. Now's your turn. Can't you sing to it or something?
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ what are you even...?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 10:02 am (UTC)(link)
[It's an egg. It's like swinging a baby in your arms. Or something.

It's an egg. She's not going to sing to it.

... she is, isn't she?]


What am I supposed to sing?
forthepresent: (failing to be impressed)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 10:05 am (UTC)(link)
[ she is. ] I don't know, I don't think it can tell the difference. Might as well go with that one song Usagi's always singing.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ eh?)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 10:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Because she needs reminders of the excessive fangirling. Then again, it's Usagi. She can't really be upset.

But before she has
any intention of singing C'est la Vie...]

Only if you sing it, too.
forthepresent: (explaining)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 10:10 am (UTC)(link)
You think I know the lyrics? [ she actually does, most of them, but only due to the sheer amount Usagi plays and sings that song. seriously, you'd think Minako doesn't have any others. but anyway, there's no way she's going to admit that. ]
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ don't do anything strange)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 10:10 am (UTC)(link)
I'll give you a sheet. Or just use the ones on the karaoke screen.

[Point: Minako.]
forthepresent: (grouchyface)

[personal profile] forthepresent 2013-01-05 10:22 am (UTC)(link)
[ ugh. ] I don't do karaoke.
loves_la_vie: (minako ♥ don't do anything strange)

[personal profile] loves_la_vie 2013-01-05 10:22 am (UTC)(link)
You do today if you want this thing to quiet down.
