Sketchdump. Trying to get back into the habit!

No matter how much you love Shinra, you’d have to admit that most of the higher-ups weren’t exactly fleshed-out characters - rather, one-dimensional charactertures who only had one gimmick and/or were rather stupid to boot. Which is why I love seeing them do normal, human things, like talking to each other in the corridors and collaborating on projects like adults and colleagues. I like to see them as people who actually have the skills and mindsets to believably hold the most powerful positions in the world.

Reeve and Scarlet; Hollander and Hojo; Rufus, Dark Nation, and Shinra Snr; Veld, Heideggar, and Lazard…

…and Tseng and Aerith. Just because.

A Note From the Assistant: Livestream Broadcast December 10, 2011

So the next livestream is set for Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 7:30 pm EST, if there are no delays. However we are going to throw a bit of structure into this!

For this next livestream, Lazard is going to be playing a game with the audience and Mad-Libbing a song for everyone.

What kind of game, you ask? It’s a drinking game. Don’t worry, folks. You don’t have to drink. In fact…you have to make LAZARD drink as many times as possible. There are going to be fifteen shots on his desk tomorrow. Your job as the audience is to get him to drink them all. How do you do this? Well, it’s easy.

You simply have to embarrass the hell out of him with a question he’ll refuse to answer. Each participating audience member will have a turn at asking Lazard highly embarrassing questions; should you succeed, he will be forced into drinking some utterly vile concoction from the labs. However, if Lazard successfully answers your question, you get a strike. Three strikes and you’re out of the game.

So yes. Small recap of the ‘Embarrass Lazard’ game.

  • Participating audience members are picked.
  • Each member gets a maximum of three strikes. Until they use them all up, the audience member can keep asking questions for as long as they want.
  • As a general rule -to be fair- you can’t ask any questions about Rufus or Crisis. Failure to not ask about them will result in automatic loss. Be creative people. There’s so much to figure out about Lazard!

Winners, longest embarrassment streaks and other fun statistics will be posted after the livestream.

And then there will be mad-libbing! Lazard will ask the audience to provide words such as verbs and nouns and the like and place them in a song. Afterward, he will sing the song with the newly written in lyrics for your enjoyment.

Once that segment is over, there will be a quick Q & A session. Normal questions and odd requests may be made then.

This time, we hope to keep the show only for an hour this time. All good things come in moderation after all.

Today, we’re featuring characters at the top of the pecking order.

Wildcard for karanguni

Tags: Veld, Reeve, Reno, Tseng, Slice of life, interdepartmental relations, foreshadowing

ShinRa Inc. doesn’t have a place for good men in their inner workings and Veld isn’t the gambling sort, but when a wildcard places itself in your hand you’d be a fool not to keep it just in case.

Shinra’s Finest for KittenFair

Tag: Lazard Deusericus

Joint security detail can be quite the chore, as can middle management. Now and again, though, a deep connection can be forged with a kindred soul.

Sleep well
  • [Aisha]:You're up late!
  • Lazard:not for much longer, I doubt, but hello!
  • [Aisha]:*Laughs* I was going to send you a goodnight message.
  • Lazard:body is in revolt, but it's calming a bit
  • Lazard:aww I'll take it!
  • Lazard:alright, I'm gonna try sleep
  • [Aisha]:Good night!
  • [Aisha]:*dad tucks you in*
  • [Aisha]:Oh wait you don't have one, Lazard.
