Silver was beaming all the way to the contest hall. This was one of their favorite events! The cute contest was especially fun. They also felt like they had a good shot at the win, compared to their miserable performance in the freak show. The only problem was trying to decide which cute creature to bring with them! There were so many good contenders, but in the end, they settled on a baby Chiryma they had. Her name was Love and she was as fluffy and pink as could be.
They carried Love into the contest hall and cupped her in one hand as they filled out the paperwork to apply. They were pretty used to filling it out by now since they attended every contest they could. Quintessence knew the drill, too, and he lazily floated onto the table and watched the pen as it scratched around on the forms. They smiled and handed over their paperwork. "This is Love," they explained. "She's a Chiryma and she'll be who I'm showing today." As if she realized what just happened, Love let out a cheerful little peep. Silver could just melt into a puddle right there. They were more confident than ever that she had a chance to win the contest.
Renathan hadn't been out and about in a long time, but he was gearing up to start up contests again. Why not? They were fun, tended to be low-stakes, and didn't make him feel like a failure for losing. It really was a win-win-win on all sides. He had heard that there was a cute contest coming up. Hadn't they done this a while back? He wondered how often the contests rotated. Leave it to Renathan to wonder how things worked! He had to select his 'cutest' pet, of which he had many. He figured that the poor crowd was probably tired of seeing little Delacour (even though she was the cutest!) so he decided instead of bring along Caliburn. Renathan's usual taste in what was 'cute' wasn't always the same as others, but he figured that Caliburn fit the bill regardless.
The russet mammalian steps up to the table holding his beloved (untrained) Orbaru wearing his best bow and groomed to the nines. "Hey there! I'd like to enter my SD orbaru, Caliburn, into the cute contest?" Hopefully he wasn't too late, He had been a bit late getting up out of bed, that morning... When was the deadline, anyway?
(Renathan is using Sever Bond | Figured I'd throw a hat in the ring so that hopefully this could run if another throws in; if this is closed, ignore me!)

Cute.. Basantai was cute, in his opinion. What was cuter than the biggest, fluffiest creature anyone could possibly imagine? One that gave kisses and boops, at that! The leopard had decided. He wanted to show the giant furred serpent in the ring. He hadn't had much success in the past with this whole show ring thing, but he still enjoyed the process in any case. It gave the creatures in his care the chance to be seen and appreciated by others. Exposure to different people, faces, animals. Basantai in particular could use that kind of exposure. The beast was both very aware of living things around him, as well as standoffish. As long as they didn't pose some kind of threat to his person. And a contest of cute things might just have the best assortment of non-threatening participants ever. And so it was decided. The leopard rode atop the serpent, mentally guiding it to the contest hall. There didn't seem to be much commotion about the place, unlike for the previous contests. He slid down the creature's nose and was safely lowered to the ground. Well, here went nothing.
"Xentus would like to enter his pliathor here, Basantai, to the contest", the man explained to the registration desk, "Ah, yes, for the cute show." No, he wasn't mistaken. Of all the choices in his personal menagerie, he went with a pliathor. He only could hope he wasn't somehow outright rejected from entry for trying to enter such a potentially dangerous beast!
Name: Rusty Level: 50 Loyalty: 50 Stamina: 3 Strength: 1 Resistance: 2 Dexterity: 5 Mentality: 2 Special Abilities: Run, Nightvision, Empathic Link Moves: Stalk, Mind Soothe, Summon Food Source (Fish) Tricks: Name (1), Sit (1), Lay Down (1), No (1), Come (1), Stay (1), Follow (1), Jump Up (1), Fetch (1), Roll Over (1), Shake (1), Leap (1), Catch (2) *No moves/abilities have been taught on command.
Fanged had never been to the contest hall before. She felt a little out of place in such a fancy area, but Rusty had worked hard to learn his tricks and Fanged wanted him to show them off. Rusty was happy enough to follow her along to the contest hall. When they got there, Fanged was a little overwhelmed to discover the paperwork she’d had to fill out. She didn’t want to mess up anything and ruin Rusty’s chances of doing well.
“Yes, we’re here for the cute pet show!” she told the individual working at the registration desk.
She was handed the forms to fill out and she got to work. Filling out paperwork was commonplace for her, but there was additional pressure of a pet show that made her nervous. She thought Rusty’s cuteness fit the theme well. Although, she was also quite biased in that regard. She could only hope that they both performed to the best of their ability.
There was something about contests that was just. Simple fun. It also gave Kadin an excuse to explore his kennels and get to know some of the other creatures in there. He knew that he had a bunch of terrifying horses that were on fire, of course, because they made it very clear that they were there and wouldn't let him forget it. Did he know that he had a literal pink pony in his kennels? No. Not in the slightest. Was he delighted to learn this? Well, yeah. I guess. It sure gave him a good candidate for the latest contest he'd heard of, one where the contestants were supposed to be cute. Who wouldn't like seeing an actual pink pony in a contest like that? He'd fit right in. So here Kadin was, entering said pink pony in a contest for all things cute, because this was the point his life was at now.
Perhaps... it's easier to forget.
Riku: I appreciate that.

Silver: Yea over time I realized that people either ignored or resented a lot of the lore anyway, so I've mostly just figured, eh, if you want to play, do what you want. I'd rather have you around than yell at you for your plot points.

Alma: If it helps, this version feels like it changed/removed a lot of the old fluff and is a great deal more free-form now. Could probably make up whatever to make your OC's reach the city and fit in somewhat so long as they aren't from something like Halo.
Apr 12, 2021 12:49:24 GMT -6
Yang: i feel like its a real challenge to bring in OC's when the Story-story of the labs is a big 'ol question mark; i get the idea/Sense of the labs' story; to make beasts that are Cool and Powerful, but beyond that its all '? ? ?' ; to me atleast :B
Apr 12, 2021 10:30:40 GMT -6
Kadin: Hah, same, I still haven't finished Kadin's intro back to the labs plot area thread even tho I've been back for months now
Apr 12, 2021 7:26:36 GMT -6
Silver: To be honest, I write most of my prologues much later, if ever haha.
Apr 11, 2021 21:52:35 GMT -6
Riku: A lot of my pets have prologues that need to be written still.....but I could technically write those later as flashbacks in the plot area.
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:34 GMT -6
Riku: I look forward to seeing stuff come about. Long-plans for six months to a year or two in the future are things I'm open to!
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:00 GMT -6
Riku: I love Alma's ideas for the boss fights. I'd really enjoy participating, but I just don't know if I'm currently qualified with my very little actual training experience and lack of muse lately...
Apr 11, 2021 21:05:30 GMT -6
Kadin: ... Heck, I should train up SEVERAL teams of gallor, lol
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:31 GMT -6
Kadin: I'd like to train a group of vulti or other pets up in the future, but I'll probs run the fights with my currently trained pets, too, until those others are trained up
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:09 GMT -6
Noa: I doubt anyone is gonna want to tag team with me anyhow XD
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:25 GMT -6
Noa: I'll probably be solo-ing the Pit ones, at least... Mostly because I'm not as interested in the points as I am in gaining levels on specific pets. And since my PLs are so high, I'd bring down the point earnings, so
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:16 GMT -6
Riku: Maybe that can be one of the 'bosses'. Like a group of Vulti.
Apr 10, 2021 19:49:54 GMT -6
Jack: Yeah I really liked the idea.
Apr 10, 2021 19:12:13 GMT -6
Alma: I really like the idea of pack instincts coming into play with a pack of beasts that can be seen as thematically linked to a boss. XD
Apr 10, 2021 19:08:50 GMT -6
Alma: I figure most players will want to solo through a few fights with their stronger pets first, if for no other reason than to make the fights go faster, but I'll probably ask around for that sort of team again later.
Apr 10, 2021 19:07:49 GMT -6
Jack: I'm thinking of throwing a couple of Sarane at the Wiurn, but I'm liking your ideas you posted! I'm totally game for it, to be honest.
Apr 10, 2021 16:47:58 GMT -6
Alma: Anyone have any plans for their teams?
Apr 10, 2021 16:41:06 GMT -6
Alma: The boss system looks pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing more fights in it.
