Eighth Jiggy | [Voice/Action] | Happy birthday...?

[Voice]

[This particular announcement begins with a close-up on one slightly-irritated looking breegull's face. The journal has gotten easier to open without hands, but it's still not always a cakewalk.

After a moment, though, her beak shifts into something resembling a smile - a little mocking, perhaps, but a smile nonetheless.]


So. Some heck of a birthday I have, right? Village looks like a pile of junk, Malnosso-guys going nuts, some dumb draft thing they didn't send me on, all this crud. And on top of all that, I still got my "present" from the Malnosso-guys to worry about. [She looks down at her wings pointedly to emphasize this.] So. Gotta cheer this place up a little, I think!

First 'n' foremost. It's my birthday today - s'when my first game came out, Banjo-Kazooie - so none of you had better forget! And I'm gonna need something really awesome. Maybe something even cooler than my hero party! As well as tons of presents, because a party's not a party without some presents -

[... but there is another problem, too.]

- whenever all this junk gets cleaned up, anyway. Is that even ever gonna happen? The fat ol' hag's cruddy amusement park looked better kept-up than this place and I was clearing out like half of the stupid stuff on the ground!

Anyway. [Almost idly, but:] How many of you other guys've had birthdays here? And what's it like for you weird non-cartoony-types, what with that getting-older thing and all?

[And because she can't filter:] Oh, hey, anybody know how to make some... I dunno, fake robot-y wings or something? [Eggman would be proud.] Marco said somethin' about "blacksmiths", whatever the heck that means.


[Action]

[Okay, so having a party now isn't really feasible. Some of the Pony House is missing, the whole village is still messy and broken (though it starts repairing later today!) and in general everything is a shambles. But this doesn't stop Kazooie from poking through the Item Shop and Weapons Shop for her Eggs and some decent snack food for her birthday.

People might catch her trying to awkwardly scoop chips - or crisps, as she'd call them; seed and nut mixes, candy and other assorted foods - perhaps even a whole cake - into a bag with the blunt hind-wings, or otherwise struggling with her items (but totally not asking for help or anything because that's lame) while she tries to navigate the shops. But eventually she'll get them outside! And maybe make a spectacle of herself eating them near or around the Fountain because she loves being the centre of attention. Come up and talk to her! She'll regale you with tales of her epic video game series.]

Seventh Jiggy | [Action/Voice] | Backdated to May 15, fff

[Action | Early in the day]

[It was cloudy and overcast when Kazooie was dropped on her face in the dirt the day before. The weather had mirrored her mood, a cruel reminder of the darkness cloaking her the week before, right before the explosion of light, sound and pain had robbed everything from her senses.

She couldn't bring herself to go home. Instead, she wandered through the forest, avoiding everybody, hunkering down in the brush. Some stubborn, angry part of her didn't want to see anybody - didn't want to be reminded of that failure, that irreconcilable fact that she had failed utterly and entirely. She didn't want to go back and see the look in the eyes of her friends...

... Because the signs of her ruination were physical.

But she can't stay away forever. And this is why she walks home today, taking the quickest path to House 45 that she can from the pocket of forest she's been nesting in. She tries not to be seen - but who knows how successful that will be? She is still bright and colourful as ever, after all.

Anybody who gets close enough to her will be able to see the scars of her defeat - her wings have been mercilessly clipped, pinioned to the point she can't use them properly.

That's why, whenever she gets to the door of the house, she's forced to peck it, thudding her beak against it until she gets a response.

And then she waits for the inevitable.]


[Accidental Voice]

[Whenever she can, Kazooie will try to get away from the others long enough to get to her journal. She needs to be sure of what day it is - just to convince herself that what happened did in fact happen.

She has to struggle to get it open, wedging her toe and beak under it and then using her shortened wings to push the pages apart. In the process, she hits the recording button.

Sure enough, it's the fifteenth. A week and a few days. That's longer than she's ever been dead before...

The journal catches her sigh of resignation and the subsequent spoken words.]


... This is crud. How the heck am I gonna do anything now? This never happened when I died at home...!

I can't even Fly - whoever heard of a dumb bird who couldn't fly...?!

[Her voice almost breaks there, from anguish she wouldn't normally admit.]

Stupid Malnosso-guys. Stupid, stupid...!

[Stupid her.

... She doesn't notice the journal's on, and sounds like she could use some comforting. Any volunteers?]

Sixth Jiggy | [Voice/Action] | Backdated to the 21st

[Sometime after the announcement for the latest mission goes up, this particularly raucous, squawking voice sounds over the journal.

Kazooie sounds nothing short of exultant, and possibly a tad more arrogant than usual.]


Looks like the Malnosso-guys got good taste for once!

[She smirks into the journal - it looks kind of silly, with a beak.] Guess who's going on this awesome mission? That's right - me! Only makes sense that they'd pick a real hero for the job. This monster thing sounds like it needs one heck of a beatdown! So I'll just have to give it one.

[She's not so sure on being accompanied by the creepy droids, though.]

Those dumb-bots they're sendin' with us had better not try anything funny, or I'll turn 'em into scrap.

[Yes, she is entirely too cocky. Judging by her casual-sounding air, this whole concept - going into a completely-new place to face a foreign hellbeast - is old hat to her. But she's probably exaggerating her own abilities by... a lot.]

Wonder if they'll let me bring a few Nests of Eggs with me? Or maybe my backpack? They'd better give us plenty of cool stuff if they want us to kick butt for 'em!

And what else do you guys usually bring on these missions, anyway? Gotta make sure I'm ready to go. Usually I'd just get Banjo to do that for me...

[After her little chat with the villagers, Kazooie will head out, intent on making the rounds in the village and saying hi to anybody she needs to meet before her mission. In particular, she'll be seeking out these people she's supposed to go with, if she hasn't talked to them already.

Also, her friends. Gotta reassure them that she'll be just fine... even if she isn't entirely cognizant of what she's going to be up against. But she's a hero, right? She can do it - no matter what the odds are, she'll make it. She's done it before; she'll do it again, as many times as it takes.

That's what being a hero is all about!]

Fifth Jiggy | [Voice/Action] | V-Day Shenanigans!

[Kazooie does not like sappy things. She does not like mushy, gushy, dumb things like Valentine's Day. They are stupid and the only good part about them is the candy.

Why, then, is she having persistent thoughts of feeling... well... lonely?


blah blah introspection )

... Anyway. There's only one way to fix this problem. And so Kazooie turns to the journals, as she usually does when she needs to complain.]

Hey, I'm offering all you awesome guys out there a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - getting to live with a real hero like me.

See, I'm looking to move out of my apartment, and I need someone cool as a roommate! Like somebody who knows the real value of having a window you can Glide out of. Or a fellow hero who appreciates kicking butt and going on adventures!

[After a moment, she shifts gears, her tone noticeably changing.]

And what's with all this Valentine's day junk anyway? You people should just shut up and keep your stupid kissy flappy lip-things to yourself! It's gross seeing all of it!

None of that crud for me, nope. Only real adventure is awesome enough to be worth doing on a day like today, far as I'm concerned. Or a good party!

... At least the chocolate is pretty good.

[Though... there is Rainbow Dash...

... What is filtering? Kazooie's just going to announce this blatantly.]


Hey, uh, Dash... Whaddya say we do something cool today? Like... I dunno. Go on an adventure! Get away from all this mushy stuff.

[With that, she'll head out to the plaza as usual, to find her friends (unaffected or otherwise) and possibly get some food from the bakery for her awesome day trip with Rainbow Dash. Or whoever else.

She's completely convinced she's not affected, of course. Because why would somebody as cool as her ever have feelings like this?

... She's in for one rude awakening when this Shift is over.]

Fourth Wall Jiggy | [Voice/Action/Video/EVERYTHING] | From the 28th to the 29th!

[Saturday]

[Well, this is weird. There sure are a heck of a lot of people in Luceti today... more than Kazooie's ever seen before. Trotting around the village as usual is getting more and more difficult without bumping into some dumb New Feather-kinda-guy.

... And is it just her or are they missing wings?

Eventually Kazooie gets uncomfortable enough with everything to turn to the journals.]


Someone know why all these weird wingless guys keep showing up...? At this rate there isn't gonna be any room left! I'm not inviting weirdos into my apartment!

[Still, a bird's gotta go out. And so Kazooie can be found around the village, side-eyeing any newcomers. Is there anybody who she recognizes, who will recognize her, or who will otherwise cause shenanigans?]


[Sunday]

[Okay, so things haven't gotten any less weird, but Kazooie does not care because today there is a Jiggy in Luceti. Holy crap. It is big and shining and golden and it is right there and she has missed her Jiggies so much.

The aforementioned golden puzzle piece will be rotating quietly in the plaza, waiting for any fun shenanigans to occur near or around it while Kazooie marvels over the video function.]


It's a real Jiggy! I haven't found one of those things since the end of Banjo-Tooie! Maybe the Malnosso-guys finally got off their dumb butts and got me one!

[Care to try to take it from her? Or do you just want to marvel?]

Fourth Jiggy | [Video/Action] | Backdated to January 18

[Today, there is a little red bird in the snow.

Kazooie playing Freezeezy Peak annoyingly on her kazoo~ )

It's awhile before she stops, tucking the kazoo away safely under one wing before addressing the journal.]

There's a buncha those 'New Feathers' coming to Luceti, right? It's pretty lame here and stuff, what with the dumb Malnosso-guys and their even dumber experiment things that they do all the time...

So, I figured the plaza needed some lightening up! [She grins widely, something that could easily be construed as a casual challenge.] What better way than a big ol' snowman, right? [As she speaks, she pats the side of the oversized snowy form she's constructing; it's done up in the traditional way, albeit rather imposingly oversized. (Not quite as large as its namesake from the real Freezeezy Peak - Kazooie's not that patient, not by a long shot - but definitely a lot bigger than the average snowman.)] This guy's kinda like the one I had back home, at Freezeezy Peak. Luceti looked like it when all those lights and junk like that were up at Christmas, but it doesn't have any background music, so I had to make some!

[She pats another mound of snow into place on the snowman's side.] I was thinking to make 'im life-sized, 'cause the one there had this awesome red-and-yellow scarf and you could go sledding off of that! It's a real blast; there's nothing like it! [She pauses to grin widely into the camera then, smirking at her presumed audience.] Now how much more awesome can you get than that, huh?

We could be doing that right now if you guys'd get your butts down here and help make the biggest snowman ever. It could be even more awesome than the one I'm thinking of!

[Satisfied that her faux-sales pitch has totally grabbed everybody's attention, Kazooie actually goes back to work, pushing the snow into place. From the looks of things, she's going to be here awhile, trying to work on her snowman...]

Man, all this work and I'm not even gonna get a Jiggy out of it. It better turn out as great as I'm hoping!

[So what shall you do, fair citizens of Luceti?

Will you get annoyed at the kazoo playing? Wonder why there's a giant snowman in the square? Pitch in to help? Suggest better options for sledding that are significantly less foolhardy and don't take up the entire plaza?

The choice is yours.]
talontrot: (seriously i WILL peck you)

Third Jiggy | [Voice/Action] | Event shenanigans for the 27th-28th!

CANCER

• You will inadvertantly shoplift several times this week.
• You will find a turtle in your laundry.
• Your usually dominant manner is replaced by a coy submissiveness today. Go with it.
• Face facts, you have a dreadful singing voice.

[Kazooie doesn't usually pay much attention to her journal, outside of times where she wants to yammer on to someone or invite someone to go out with her. But anybody's curiosity would be piqued by a bunch of random words appearing, right?

Huh. Kazooie's never heard of this stuff before, but it sounds dumb and annoying and she doesn't like it. Especially not when the piece of crud is making fun of her voice! Her voice is just fine, thank you very much, stupid book!

Irritated, Kazooie goes to huff at the journal system.]


Is everybody's journal-thing being a jerk to them with these stupid words, or am I gonna hafta hit mine with a Grenade Egg?

[Evidently her coy submissiveness hasn't happened yet. Either that, or it doesn't apply to journals.]

These predictions are so dumb! "Submissive"? Me? Pah! I'd sooner stick my face in ol' Stinkpot again! [And she snorts audibly.]

... I bet none of them are gonna come true for me. I'm too awesome to do any of this!

[Spoke way, way too soon, Kazooie.]

What's the dumbest prediction you guys got? And did any of the really stupid junk come true for anybody else?

This has gotta be the lamest thing the Malnosso-guys've done yet!

[Even after she talks to others, though, Kazooie can't get over the journal insulting her. It's consuming her to the point where she's quite deliberately deciding that she's going to go out of her way to make sure that she'll undo every prediction. If she sees a turtle, she'll kick it out on its dumb shell! If she gets a chance to do something, it'll be as dominantly and loudly as possible! She's going to make darn sure she doesn't steal, and she will sing nicely like the bird she is!

... Too bad none of those will work in quite the way she envisions (as unfortunately for her, succeeding at failure is not really success... that was one of the alternate horoscopes she could've gotten, too).


Horrible singing and stealing action on the 27th for those who want it! )

And some coy submissiveness action on the 28th! )

Throughout all of this mess... well, chores still have to happen. Including laundry. Let's see what kind of interesting turtles she'll meet...

Actually, come to think of it, this entire event is going to prove to be pretty interesting. But that's Luceti - and Kazooie's life - for you!]

Second Jiggy | [Action/Voice] | Action part slightly backdated to this morning

Action-tastic part in the morning )

[Later on in the day, Kazooie sits down at her journal, intending to give voice to ideas that have been floating around in her head since the end of the draft.]

So, something I've been wondering for awhile - I know a bunch of the people here are good fighters, but how many of you are heroes? [She pauses for effect a moment, before elaborating on her explanation.] Y'know - goes out, rescues little girls from big ol' witches, finds peoples' lost stuff for them, collects a bunch of items, beats up bad guys who're threatening to take everybody's life force - stuff like that. I've met a couple other heroes, but I wanna know who else is kickin' around in this dump!

[This is partially scoping out her competition. But she has another motive, one she announces after a second of deep thought - well, for her, anyway.]

... Y'see, I've been thinking of throwing a party for us. A real party. Something with plenty of exciting stuff to do - 'cause it gets boring here sometimes when the Malnosso-guys aren't doing anything. That Rec Centre place was great, and I think it needs some livening up again! And it's up to someone as awesome as me to do it.

[With that, she smirks with satisfaction and leans back, waiting for the inevitable deluge of replies. As if she'll actually get any.]
talontrot: (this egg's going right up your ass)

First Jiggy | [Accidental Voice/Action] | Crappy Intro!

[It's not every day that you wake up after a particularly good game of kick-the-disembodied-witch-skull-around to discover you are very much not at Spiral Mountain. Or... anywhere you even vaguely recognize. Even if you are a first-class adventuring hero.

Naturally, Kazooie was inclined to blame this on Banjo, because there was no way she'd be stupid enough to get totally lost in her sleep. But Banjo was nowhere to be seen, not even after a good look around with the Amaze-O-Gaze goggles. This was unusual, to say the least - unusual and unsettling. Even if Banjo wasn't exactly the sharpest crayon in the box, it was silly for him to just go off on his own. After all, who was gonna protect him? She was clearly the faster and stronger adventurer - he needed her! What did he think he was doing, going off without her?

But first, to inspect the area, like any real hero. Can't go looking for Banjo without discovering some obvious pathways! ... Which are suspiciously absent from this strange forest she's in. Huh.]


Hey... there's nothing here except a book! No nests of Eggs, Feathers, Notes or anything... What kind of place is this, exactly?! It's weirder than Cloud Cuckooland - at least that had music! [Kazooie scoffs loudly, scratching a claw irritably against the foreign dirt.] And boring... what a dumb place to go to have an adventure! Pah, like the bear would pick anywhere good...

[... Wait, didn't old Winky say something about getting Banjo and Kazooie back in Banjo-Threeie? So this was probably it, huh? (Man, that witch could put herself back together fast.) But Kazooie could live with that - maybe she got to be the main character this time! Or maybe it was like the time she got kidnapped for awhile - only it was Banjo's turn to get kidnapped by the hag, and meanwhile Kazooie could be a hero and kick her butt and rescue the furry lug! Either option was one Kazooie was satisfied with for the time being, even if this was a pretty lame sequel so far. And that meant the book was probably important.

Wait - it's got her name on it. It has to be important. So Kazooie picks it up in her beak carelessly and stuffs it under a wing - if it worked for Canary Mary, it'll work for her for a bit, right?

Then she points herself down the nearest tangle of trees and starts trotting through the forest - so much like Pine Grove on the Isle O' Hags, except... it just goes on forever.]


Man, where's a silo when you need one?

La la la Equestria Kazooie crap

H'okay! Well, just like Robert, I am making a dump of text and general info for Equestria Kazooie and the information that will change about her as a result. As before, this will probably be edited a lot, and since I am largely canon-blind I may make inaccurate claims and mistakes. If I do, lemme know and I'll fix it ASAP! o/`

As before, thanks to everybody who's helped me brain MLP - especially Mega, for putting up with my questions. o/` (Also the MLP wiki.)

Thread Log (Concept Blatantly Stolen From Smarter People)

This is the way-too-long-and-never-really-finished thread log for Kazooie, stolen blatantly from people who are much smarter and better at making thread logs. Contents are roughly sequentially ordered, though I could be horribly wrong, and include anything that isn't already on this journal (that includes logs that I made in the [livejournal.com profile] lucetilogs community).

So without further ado, horrible thread log go!
