Planet of the Dinosaurs: The Science: The Musical - [Open]

Characters: Sora, Riku, Roxas and Liz, but open to others who want to watch/comment in a separate subthread
Content: A group of four puts on a skit to raise some spirits both on and off the ship!
Location: The top deck
Time of Day: Evening
Warnings: Absolute silliness

Sora was pretty pleased with their setup, considering the fact that they didn't have any of their usual art supplies available, and had made do with flowers, grasses and mud. True, their signage and painted trees were pretty messy (some of it was even still dripping), but at least you could read what everything was. Namine and Aqua had done a pretty good job for all of it. And they'd also managed to whip up some pretty good costumes for Riku, Roxas and Liz.

As for himself, Sora had dug out a scientist's lab coat from the theatical deck before it had been shut, which was a lucky break...and the groucho glasses he'd already had in his pocket. With that setup and his already-wild hair, he didn't have to work that hard to pull off a parody of Dr. Forrester.

"Welcome, everyone!" He addressed the couple of Cambots hovering nearby, which he knew would be addressing the rest of the Satellite and those on earth, too. He'd at least picked up a bit of how the Bots did their theatrics. "We're going to explain to you the amazing process of evolution in people, and in dinosaurs!"

All things considered, this was... probably going to be every bit as messed up as Roxas was expecting. At least Roxas hadn't ended up as a dinosaur. That didn't look to be a particularly comfortable costume at all. And 'costume' was a term being used very, very loosely. He did have to give credit where it was do, though, given what they had to work with.

He wasn't sure he liked playing a scientist (or something resembling one) either, but it seemed like the lesser of two evils. So he sucked it up and tried his best to play along, "We even have some visual aids for you!"

It had only just started and he already knew that having to act like an idiot grated on his nerves big time. The best he could do was tell himself there was a very good reason they were doing this and even if it was aggravating, it would (hopefully) be worth it.

Visual aids. That was the cue. From backstage (or rather, behind their crude set) came a dramatic strum from a guitar before Riku emerged. ...A less-than-thrilled looking Riku. He was slouched over, nearly dragging his guitar on the ground, and it was easy to see why.

Riku's hair had been slicked not with grease like the rest of the week, but with mud, making almost a mohawk, but intended to look like a feathered crest. Tree sap had been applied to his face to use as an adhesive for flower petals which extended into his hair, giving the attempted illusion of feathers and scales. Twigs had been tied to his fingers and shoes, including a big sharp stick applied to each shoe to imitate a sickle claw. His white shirt and light-colored pants was patterned with mud stripes, and the sleeves carefully shredded and tied to look like long wing feathers. A knotted sheet stuck out of the back of his pants and dragged on the floor as a tail.

He sighed, putting his guitar down and assuming a more saurian posture. VelociRiku leaned over, pulling his arms to the sides and stood on his toes. He had one more thing to do, still, and he didn't really want to. This whole thing was frustrating. ...And his face itched, and he couldn't scratch. The sheet down the back of his pants wasn't comfortable either.

Annoyed, the Riku-Raptor looked over at Sora, appeared briefly thoughtful, took a few steps over to him, and took a deep breath.


That was MUCH more satisfying than roaring at the audience. Riku returned to his side of the stage for his next cue.

Well, Roxas had come into this with reservations. He still had them, but Riku's part made it all worth. It was a bit difficult to keep from laughing. He managed somehow, but he was pretty sure he was going to go and laugh himself silly when this was done.

It was fairly obvious Sora's next line was meant to get even for the roar and Roxas couldn't quite help running with it. "So, if the tiny pea brain isn't doing anything for their evolution, what is?"

Oh. Great. He's modifying his lines. But that was fair, Riku'd changed how he'd delivered his... Auditory Assault. But after "simple" was supplemented with comments about brain size, Riku glared at Sora. It was bad enough he had to be in this skit, and worse still that he had to have THIS part and wear THIS outfit.

And then there was Roxas's comment. What is? Well, that called for a demonstration. Riku took two casual (and upright) steps towards Roxas and reached back to get his tail tip, though it truthfully was simply a sheet...

With that, he took it by the end and by the middle, and with a single deft movement, suddenly towel-whipped Roxas, aiming for his stomach. THAT's what's going for evolution.
thirteenth_brat: (What hit me?)

[personal profile] thirteenth_brat 2013-02-03 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
Well that hurt. It was a good thing Riku wasn't aiming lower. They might have had to go to some time of break if that was the case. As it was, he did need a moment to recover. Done right, a towel snap could be fairly painful.

"... I see." Roxas had taken a moment to think of a line or two to follow, but lost them when Sora suggesting a song about the dinosaurs' evolution, "Uhh..."

'Crap, don't crack up, don'tcrackup...' Somehow, he didn't crack up, but he wanted to. He supposed he felt a little sympathy for Riku here. How exactly had he let Sora rope him into this?

Maybe he'd get an explanation later but, for now, a line, "That sounds like it might be informative AND entertaining."
halfdarkened: (Grrr!)

[personal profile] halfdarkened 2013-02-05 06:29 am (UTC)(link)
As far as aim, Riku considered it, but this served as a decent warning shot. It was also fortunate for Roxas because with those comments, Riku's sympathy would have been lacking and he might've insisted that the "show must go on." Sora's initial comment earned him a glare, and a twist of his own "tail" as a threat that he could get whipped too.

Riku grumbled when Sora suggested the song. "Can and WILL are two different things," he muttered. Originally they'd planned for them all to sing this at some point in their impromptu skit, but apparently that'd been changed, and there wasn't much he could do about it. Grouchily he picked up the guitar again and began to play. His voice was mediocre, but at least his guitar skills were good.

"Many years ago
when the earth was much younger,
there were no human beings around.
When the dinosaurs walked the ground
shook with thunder.
It was a terrible sound.

What happened to the dinosaurs?
How did they grow?
Were they stronger, quite bold, or sharp as I've been told?
I guess you soon will know, know, know, know!
I guess you soon will know!

Many were quite large,
very quick or much stronger.
They needed more than being just buff.
When the dinosaurs knew their stuff
they lived longer.
Smartness just wasn’t so rough

What happened to the dinosaurs?
How did they grow?
Were they stronger, quite bold, or sharp as I've been told?
I guess you soon will know, know, know, know!
I guess you soon will know!

Since dinos had brains
It was a revolution.
They’d grown superior and advanced.
When the dinosaurs wore the pants
in evolution, (Riku shot a look at the other two)
Humans hadn’t a chance

That happened to the dinosaurs!
Now can I go?
They were stronger, quite bold, and sharp I've been told!
I guess that you now know, know, know, know!
Man, this is really low."

Roxas wasn't really sure what to make of this. He hadn't expected Riku to sing either. He may, however, have had an easier time keeping a straight face than Sora did. It was at least partially because he didn't want to get towel snapped again. His next line might still get him in trouble, but they were basically improvising now anyway.

"Yes, that was informative and entertaining. But, it seems like the dinosaurs are still pretty mean." Yes, he was thinking of the red mark he probably had from that towel snap.

He also noticed the color. By participating in the skit, Riku was definitely being defiant. He was uncomfortable in more ways than one and Roxas had been wondering if discomfort factor in somehow. Or rather, comfort zones and leaving them.

Still, Riku singing a silly song about dinosaur evolution was something Roxas would probably never forget...

Honestly Riku almost hadn't done it. That being said, both Sora and Roxas where going to get it later, though what was going to be done, he didn't know. But SOMETHING would be done.

At Roxas's comment, Riku grabbed his "tail" and swung it around. Well, if he had to sing a song, talking wasn't breaking character, was it?

"You bet we were. We had to survive dealing with those annoying little mammals. Maybe there's a song about how they survived? Surely some MAMMALS could perform that."
