Explosion, overpowerin’
Over the competition, I’m towerin’
Wreckin’ shop, when I drop these lyrics that’ll make you call the cops
Don’t you dare stare, you betta move, don’t ever compare
Me to the rest that’ll all get sliced and diced
Competition’s payin’ the price

((A silly little warm-up I was thinking about!
What if one of the visitors challenged her to a rap battle for fun, thinking she’ll lose ‘cause she’s more of a soft singing kinda bird, and then she absolutely slays ‘em with some LL Cool J?
While Pudding sits in the background, both amused and impressed.))

((Aaaaand back!

Had to take a break from askblogging for a while… Life decided to be a douche, so that combined with stress ended up with me losing my motivation (right during the festival, too! How ‘bout that mess? XP). But the storm has passed, you can say, so I’m ready to update again!

I’ll just say in this post that Banana’s back home and her and Pudding are open for regular asks again! The askbox has been completely nuked for it (save for a few questions I thought was important). I apologize to my partners for not doing the lantern thing… I hope I can make it up to ya somehow!))

Banana: Oh dear… I don’t know how I’m going to find anything in these conditions. Unless they find me!
…Ooooh, that’s an unsettling thought…

Banana: Oh…? It’s gum! How interesting…

…But tasty ~ ♫

"Yes, you are right. It’s-a me, eh heh ~ ♫"

Banana gives a bow, her beak clinking against Zackiel’s armor-covered arm. “Well, then, a pleasure to make your acquaintance! I am Banana ~ ♫ Please tell her that the medicine was an Arceus-send; I wouldn’t have been able to take care of the children quite so easily if it wasn’t for the remedy.”

The Swablu looks around from her perch, glancing at the surrounding forest. “Ah, so you don’t know the location, either?” She asked, humming thoughtfully. “I see… Eh heh, if only they gave us maps for the layout of the forest, this wouldn’t be a challenge…”

"Oh! I have an idea!" Banana suddenly chirped. "Where are you trying to go? Maybe we can go there together, if you’d like! Who knows; we might be going the same way ~ ♫"

Banana: *continues looking for the hot springs when she spots a familiar face. She swoops down and lands lightly on Jolokia's head* Hiya, Jolokia ~ ♫ Haven't seen ya in a while! You're looking quite snazzy for the festival ~ ♫

"Vali! Goodness, it’s been a while!"

Jolokia chuckled at the swooping goofball of a Swablu, the Skymintaur blinking as she roosted on his head. Was she… acting as a hat? He couldn’t complain, though. She was light enough to feel very hat-like, and she was pretty soft and cloud-like, being a Swablu. And of course, Jolokia’s hair had that inviting, loving scent of peppermint.

"Last time I saw you, your brother was visiting, I believe! Irva was his name, right? Hmmm… goodness, you’ve missed a lot. I have a new son and another new daughter that I’ve adopted!" The taur smirked and looked down, tails wagging as he held a cup toward the avian. It smelled vaguely of chocolate, and there appeared to be a very inviting drink within.

"Chocolate milkshake, Vali? Oh, right, and how’s life at Baile? Nothing too mundane, I hope. You need some excitement out there, heh~”

image

"Tasty, right?" Jolokia chuckled at Banana’s continued slurps, the Skymintaur getting his answer pretty quickly when she took a break from her chocolatey treat. "It’s made with genuine Casteliacone ice cream and authentic cocoa beans! These are some of my most popular summertime treats! I actually sell them in Nimbasa a few times a year, since I don’t want to cut into the Casteliacone lady’s business."

image

"Yeah… you still end up seeing more of your brother than I do mine. And he’s my twin, for goodness sake! Oh well… and yeah, more kids, Vali. It’s funny… I’m like a magnet for lost taur children these days. And, oddly enough, Celeste isn’t a taur! I thought she was at first, but it turned out the greyfaces had gotten to her. She’s just a normal Eevee. The other two are taurs, though… Cherub and Maya.”

image

"You know, Vali, it’s funny. Celeste reminds me so much of my former girlfriend, Sitara. I dated her for over a year and I was going to propose to her when she left to visit her sick grandmother in Johto. Shortly after I ended up moving to Unova, and I never saw her again. Seeing Celeste, hearing her mother died… I almost feel like I have my answer on what happened. But I have no idea who her father is… well, birth-wise at least."

Jolokia let out a sigh at the thought of her joke. “Hmmm… yeah, I don’t see myself having any kids that are biologically my own… not any time soon. I’m planning on proposing to my boyfriend here at the festival. Can’t make babies with two guys, heh…”

image

"Hmmm… hey, Vali. Jokes aside, if I ever marry Shijima, did you want to be the flower girl? I was thinking you could fly down the aisles, sprinkling flowers all around. I’d pay you in another chocolate milkshake or two! Or I could have Maya make you some brownies… what do you say? Heh… oh, yeah! Also, you should bunk with me and the family tonight! Beats sleeping alone… and you could still lay on my head like a sleeping cap! A literal one, hahaha!"

"…to both things! Eh heh, I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I didn’t plan sleeping arrangements when I came here… But one of the perks of being so little is that you don’t take up much space, so I won’t get in your way ~ ♫" With a smile, Banana lands back on Jolokia’s head, moving around his fluffy head as she settled in.

Her countenance became a bit more serious as she listened to him, humming softly. “It does sound like you’ve been through a lot, sir! Why, I remember when Cherub was just a little Deerling…” Banana gave a fond sigh. “Such a sweetheart she was. And now she’s all grown, and with more siblings ~ ♫ It’s a shame for what happened to the poor darling Eevee, but… you want to know what I think about it?” Her voice took on a low conspirator’s tone. “I believe this was fate. I think this was the best possible outcome for her, that she would have you as a father. Her mother must be smiling on you from above ~ ♫”

"And a boyfriend/possible fiancé…" Banana chuckled, a light, musical trill. "Look at you, mister Casanova! Ahhh, how romantic… Proposing under the glow of the lanterns in a moonlit forest! Do you need any mood-setting music? Any bells or birdsong to help the eventual popping of the question, wink wink, nudge nudge?"

She clicked her tongue to further accentuate the point, though she was partially kidding on that part.

"Mmmmmmm ~ ♫" Banana couldn’t even talk for a few minutes; the only sounds that could be heard were hums of contentment. She continued slurping until a quarter of it was gone, and then gave a big sigh. "Aaaaaah, that is quite delicious! You are too kind, Jolokia ~ ♫ And yes, you are correct! I’m not too sure where that brother of mine has gotten to these days… But I’m sure he’ll be fine, wherever he is!”

Banana listened to his next words with surprise. ”More children?? Goodness, Jolokia, wherever do you be finding them? I swear, if it wasn’t for the fact that you don’t look the slightest bit alike (limbs notwithstanding), I would think you were having them yourself ~ ♫” She chirps in laughter, obviously joking around.

"Ah… but it’s been a quiet, if slightly boring, time at the Day Care so far. I can’t complain, though; boring equals safe, and I would rather there be peace then conflict ~ ♫ Or course this peace is agitating Pudding to no end, hmhm ~ ♫ Poor thing can’t sit still because of it!" The Swablu scoots forward a bit, leaning over Jolokia’s head so she can look down at him. "And what of you? I never knew you to be the festival type ~ ♫"

(Alrighty, so I’m gonna break down what I need to do:

  • Do the lantern sending post
  • Do some of the replies I owe. First and most importantly is the one with Loki about bunking. After that’s done, Banana will be available for tent asks/interactions
  • Do the Lantern finding part (though I need to talk more about that with my partner)
  • Finish more replies, including the one with Banana’s lantern being found by Sapphire. After that one is done, Banana will be available for morning posts

I think that’s everything!))

— Banana is (temporarily) hyper! —
