Love it! Weequay make good cartoon figures, it seems.

Poor M1-4X. Being a toy in this daycare center is really rough. And it would be even worse if I knew Blizz well enough to invite him in.

Oh dear.

Is there a chibi Broonmark in here? I somehow picture him as one of those fluffy squeak toys that the other kids pound on just to hear the noises he makes.

A question, since I don't really know the protocol: If marvelous sketches of chibi daycare companions keep showing up, is it appropriate to put up a thread in the Fan Art section? And if so, does art get crossposted, or posted there and linked from the opening post here, or...is anybody familiar with a good way to do this?

Because I am loving the drawings

Sure why not, Fan Art and Fan Fic should go hand in hand. I think linking to the opening posts would be good enough. I was wondering if I should draw in the legs of the "caretakers" to show the whole rugrat/baby perspective. I'm not sure I want to draw Khem Val legs though, those things are scary.

Hey, maybe I'll draw some pictures too! Everyone will get a good laugh out of my crap drawing skills.

Alas, I haven't played Consular or BH - couldn't really get into them. Skadge is an easy target, so I can write him in, but the other nine companions there are mysteries to me.

I have a notion for Qyzen Fess. But he may have to wait.

On TUESDAYS, FCD is staffed by KHEM VAL and LORD SCOURGE.


BABY CORSO: Mister Khem Val! Mister Khem Val! Can we go outside?
KHEM VAL: Why would you do this?
BABY CORSO: Itís wicked nice. Look! The sunís out and there are hardly any big fanged monsters nearby!
KHEM VAL stares at BABY CORSO with a perfect sabacc face.
BABY CORSO: Itís sunny. And nice. And sunny!
KHEM VAL and LORD SCOURGE exchange looks.
LORD SCOURGE: Is this a good thing?
BABY CORSO: WellÖyeah. Sunlight is happy and nice.
KHEM VAL: Is this a good thing?
BABY CORSO: I hate Tuesdays. I want T7 back.
KHEM VAL: Iíve not heard such whining since the bar shut down at Yn and Chabosh.
BABY XALEK: Mister Lord Scourge. I humbly request that we get to go play outside.
LORD SCOURGE: Itís Lord Scourge, you idiot. I donít need Mister. I keep telling you that.
BABY XALEK: Yes, Mister Lord Scourge.
LORD SCOURGE: Get out of my sight.
BABY XALEK: Yay!
BABY XALEK sprints out, picks a few daisies, admires them in the sunlight, smiles broadly behind his mask, then realizes other people might see him. He pops the daisiesí heads off and snarls dramatically to demonstrate his bad***ery.
BABY KALIYO strolls out to the yard carrying a magnifying glass.
BABY KALIYO: I love sunny days.
BABY VECTOR sits on the grass next to where BABY CORSO has flopped on his back, looking at the sky.
BABY VECTOR: Days like this remind us of our home planet. Did you see such beauty where youíre from?
BABY CORSO: You realize thereís only one of you, right?
BABY VECTOR: What?
BABY CORSO: Never mind. Ord Mantell had pretty days, sure. The sun was usually hidden behind a fine mist of bullets with a slight haze of continuous blaster fire and the screams of the wounded, but it was pretty in its own way. BABY CORSO pauses and frowns. Kind of.
BABY VECTOR: Perhaps Forced Companions is a safer place for you.
BABY CORSO: Oh, definitely.
BABY KALIYO: Hey, Vector! Lookit!
BABY VECTOR and BABY CORSO go over to where BABY KALIYO is hunched over an anthill. She centers the magnifying glass to fry ants one by one as they flee the nest she is poking.
BABY VECTOR: We keep forgetting that you never call us over to see nice things.
BABY KALIYO: You realize thereís only one of you, right?
BABY VECTOR: What?
BABY KALIYO: Never mind. Look, if I corral Ďem with twigs I can roast three or four at once.
BABY XALEK, wandering over: Pretty resourceful, for a Force-blind.
BABY XALEK starts intercepting the panicked ants with little sparks of Force lightning.
BABY KALIYO: Hey, quit it! These ones are mine! Get your own!
BABY KALIYO runs around to start focusing the sunlight on BABY XALEKís neck. BABY XALEK flicks little sparks of Force Lightning at BABY KALIYO.
BABY KALIYO: Ooh, scary. If I had hair it might be standing up right now, but youíre not even having that much effect.
BABY VECTOR, sadly: Forced Companions is not a safer place for most of us.

On WEDNESDAYS, FCD is staffed by T7-01 and SCORPIO.


BABY JAESA is, as usual, paralyzed by indecision.
BABY JAESA: Doc, you gotta help me. Thereís a toy car, and thereís a toy boat. And I donít know what to play with.
BABY DOC: You could come play with me. We could smooch.
BABY JAESA: That doesnít sound very appealing at all. Come on, Iíve gotta choose something. If I choose wrong, thereís no going back.
BABY DOC: Smooches first.
BABY JAESA: Iím not sure thatís a good idea.
BABY DOC: Youíre not sure anything is a good idea, beautiful. Itís part of what makes you so cute. Smooches?
T7-01: Baby Doc = acting out // SCORPIO = give him a talking-to about inappropriate urges?
SCORPIO: Are you certain you want me to pursue this course of action?
T7-01: T7 = bad at talking-tos // Baby Doc = always commences dance party using T7's beeping as techno beats
SCORPIO: Very well.
BABY JAESA whimpers and flees at SCORPIOís approach. SCORPIO shoots a small electrodart that freezes BABY DOC in place. BABY DOC stares up at her in mute terror.
SCORPIO: Doc. It is only through challenging oneís limits that one realizes oneís potential. Transgressive behavior is an effective way to quickly determine the limits of what one can and cannot get away with, and boldly acting on oneís ďinappropriate urgesĒ on a few occasions may do more to characterize your environment and local statutes than a lifetime of playing it by the rules. Just retain the presence of mind to observe your associatesí reactions; you can learn a great deal from their outrage.
T7-01: SCORPIO = crazy??? // T7 = asked SCORPIO to give Doc a talking-to
SCORPIO: I did so. You did not specify that the talking-to had to advocate prosocial behavior.
The electrodart stun wears off. BABY DOC shudders.
BABY DOC: Did you just give me permission to make trouble, Miss SCORPIO?
T7-01: Answer = NO
SCORPIO: Yes.
BABY DOC: Lil' Docís gonna interpret that in the most favorable possible way.
BABY DOC sprints for the kitchen, vaults over the locked half-door, and starts tugging small kitchen appliances free to stack them so as to reach the cookie jar.
T7-01: SCORPIO = ruined us all
SCORPIO: A social order that cannot withstand a single disruptive element is a social order ripe for change.
BABIES TANNO VIK, RISHA, KALIYO, and ANDRONIKOS, having noticed BABY DOCís activity, stampede to the kitchen to assist in the liberation of the cookies.
T7-01: That = more than a single disruptive element
SCORPIO: I only subverted the one. Fascinating.
T7-01: T7 = not physically equipped to subdue a mob of small children
SCORPIO: I am. But I choose not to.
T7-01 rolls over to where BABY JAESA is staring at her toy choices, looking anguished.
T7-01: T7 = recommends boat // boats = awesome
BABY JAESA, gratefully: Thanks!
T7-01: T7 = glad to still have authority somewhere
