Skull.

I want to talk about this later. There’s a lot I need to say as you’re my brother and literal next in line.

But I’m a little too inebriated right now. I’m making an idiot of myself over here; Toad can vouch for me.

Timing has been a real bitch to me lately.

Now that I am here, I am, with any fortune, not going anywhere. Take your time, брат. I’ll be here.

…In my room, reclining. While I enjoy this wine and some downloaded literature. Do not think I am missing out on the party just because I am not there to have it.

ringsabell asked: THERe you are! Where the hell haeve you been and why aren't you paying yuor brothers a visit? It's one day! ONE DAY! Sorry if my text is a mess I'm a little drunk right now...

I’ve been offline, брат. Allow me to apologize for not being able to visit the police station while utterly inoperative. I’ll make a better effort in the future; maybe bring a care package to your office. We can catch up.

No NO! Not my office! Hold on, let me think or at least fix my spelling. 

Yeah, anyway…

I don’t take visitors. I meant HERE. Why aren’t you here at the party with us? It’s only one night a year.

But you apparently answered my question. Are you okay? What made you go offline? Shit, I need to pull myself together this might be important.

My software and programming was all degrading. Heavy damage combined with my original programming simply…not being meant to stand the test of time. I had to take time to straighten myself out, simply put. With how much data there was, it understandably took quite some time.

I’m actually feeling better now than I have in quite some time.

tenguman asked: Oh look, it's my favorite chew toy~ Whose closet were you locked in this time?

…Oh, it’s Tengu Man. You’ll have to forgive me, I have a hard time recognizing your face without dents in it. I’ve only had your head hung up on my wall as a reference.

I know, I clean up real nice, right? How about a dance. Or a smooch.

Sorry, the kiss of death is reserved specifically for people I wish to kill, but also respect. You only meet one of the qualifications.

>It could be better.

>Why are you not here yet you should be drinking and singing with your brothers!

>I woke up too late. I don’t have anything new to wear, unfortunately.

>And I get plenty of drinking and singing with my brothers at home. Not enough quiet.

>Well aren’t you fancy. Ring made me wear a suit for this, it is tight and uncomfortable.

>Bah you and your quiet, enjoy it while it lasts, I will be making all of you help with the garden when we get back.

>Except Dive.

>I do not need more squashed tomatoes.

>I would be happy to help your garden, Toad.
>I’m a dab hand with a sickle. Hmhm.

Are you into rap now?

Have you a problem with that? Flash Man?

Do not call this a comeback. I have been here for years. Punishing my peers and putting the foolish in fear; making the tears rain down like a monsoon.
