[The voice that comes over the public channel is... odd, and new to most folks here. He pauses for a bit, as if that's the entire thought-- but, sure enough, he follows it with an obviously annoyed question.]
So we're just kind of... here, because they say so? Like... this can't be legal, can it? Has anybody tried talking to the fuckin' police about this?
[As he speaks, he gets increasingly irritated, his voice breaking.]
I'm gonna be real with you guys: I've got half a mind to just kinda magic my way out, except I'm pretty sure the Ringleader or whatever would come after me. Is that a thing?
The Psionic here with a very important announcement.
The sense of camaraderie in our department is at an all time low. So, to fix this, attendance at Rex the Rat's birthday party is now mandatory for all Labor Department members. Also I will be bringing twister and you absolutely will have to play.
Chiaki may have gotten out of planning, but Lars, don't think you won't have to make the food still. And I think we have someone new so if your name is Adrien and you're listening to this, please go ahead and publicly introduce yourself. Yes you will have to come to the party.
If anyone knows any party games that will force people to get up close and personal, I'm open to suggestions.
[Jeez, Ginko feels like he has been on the radio a lot lately. But he does sound considerably less distressed than the last time he made an announcement.]
Hey, so I know people might, uh… be getting tired of hearing from me, given recent circumstances. But it’s good news this time, I promise.
Our rat king, Rex, seems to be growing his seventh head, which makes him six years old now. If anyone wants to come by and see, he’s in the menagerie as usual; I’d recommend it, since this might be some of you guys’ only chance to see this. Uh… be careful, though, it can’t see yet, so it might be a little more prone to bite than the others. Just watch your hands.

Hey, it’s Ginko. Uh… so, my and Tanyuu’s entire supply of mushi tobacco seems to have gone missing? I don’t necessarily mean to imply that someone took it, but, unless someone can explain how two months’ worth of prepared repellent, cigarettes, and all of the plants we get it from could disappear on their own, someone probably took it.
And for the record, mushi tobacco has no narcotic effects whatsoever, it just repels mushi, so… if anyone wanted it for recreational purposes, you might as well give it back. I promise I won’t be angry.
[He’s not mad, just
disappointed very worried.]
Seriously, we… need this stuff back, preferably soon. Oh, and-- Zecora, heads up, if you’ve got any mushi tobacco stored away I might need to stop by and take some. I can trade with funnel cake.
[For a solid thirty seconds, anyone tuned in to the public channel might catch snippets of Greg's voice warping in and out of static as he tries to find the right station again.]ould've marked, had it writ[kghshghhshh]know if it[hhsshhhkshhzz]onono that was... think that was... hello? Hello?
I--I think, uh, there's something... wrong? But it's good... and I shouldn't, but I... do. That doesn't make sense, I know, and that's why I'm confused. I think I'm scared? But I'm not. But I want to... be... but...
My head hurts, and also my... I'm confused, and... I don't get it.
Okay! We've got a few more newbies so the mandatory ice breaker game is two truths and two lies! Say two things about yourself that are true and two that are a lie, and then everyone else well try and guess which ones are the lies. Got it?
I'll go first:
My blood is yellow.
I was hatched with four eyes and four horns.
Purple is my favorite color.
I'm a wanted criminal on my home planet.
[OOC: Respond with your own truths and lies and answer each other, or ask Psi about his. Threadjacking is encouraged!]

((OOC: Since Ginko and Tanyuu are both going to be talking in here, Ginko’s voice is indicated in green and Tanyuu’s is purple for readability.
For more details on the plot, please look at the OOC post!))Hey, uh… I know this isn’t the best timing for this, but it’s not like there’s such thing as good timing in this case. So, just so everyone knows, it seems like we’ve got a mushi infestation in the carnival.I know we have a lot of new faces around, so for those that don’t know, mushi are small creatures from mine and Ginko’s homeworld that will sometimes drift through. Most of them are fairly harmless, but a few colonies of what we call Un seem to have drifted in.Basically, if you notice sound seeming dampened or something in your trailer or part of the carnival, come let Tanyuu or me know and we can deal with it. ...Or if you’re just having trouble hearing in general, for that matter. Zecora will know what to do, too, if you’d rather go to her.[But honestly Zecora is overworked enough lately and he’d rather not add more to her plate, okay.]
[ after he's settled in and been assigned his trailer and jobs, he's decided to roam around to find where this 'job' would be. the reality of everything hasn't entirely settled in yet. rather, he thinks that this is just a prank or a 'day thing' or something. there's a definite mental block on it.
nonetheless, he's going to the use the walkie on the public channel once he's reached the animals. there's a cacophony of animal noises in the background when he presses the button down to speak: ]
I didn't realize half of these animals existed! [ there's a roar and then some weird hissing. ]
How do you 'take care' of a dragon? Is there a special brush... or food...? He's much bigger than Makkachin! Speaking of which, has anyone seen an adorable poodle anywhere?

Everyone check in, now. Do not make me come looking for you.

Does anyone need help moving? If you're injured see Zecora, even if you think it's not that bad. Anyone with healing magic keep an eye out and an ear up for people in need.
I'm going to do a fly over and make sure no one unconscious gets missed.
