(Prior to this, a room with an occult symbol gifted the whole party with different rings, one to a player. The rings gave each player access to a unique familiar, but wearing them would also cause horrible nightmares of strange occult men getting closer and closer to our location. The party is attempting to get rid of the rings.)
[The party passes by a traveling circus. They are looking for the next big act or circus animal they can get their hands on. Our druid’s current Wild Shape is that of a bear.]
Ringmaster: Come and see the Circus! It will feature the next big act we can find, straight from your local hometown! We’ll pay anyone who can bring us a standout act!
Me, Arya, an elven bard: Excuse me, sir, we think we can help you if you need circus animals. This ring here gives you access to a hippogriff at any time you desire to call on it. How much will you pay?
[The ringmaster is delighted and makes it a deal, paying. A few other players sell their rings.]
Gorstag, a human barbarian: Actually, before we go, sir, we have one more animal you can buy off of us. [HE GESTURES TO THE DRUID IN THE FORM OF A BEAR] How much will you pay?
Druid OOC: YOU’RE TRYING TO SELL ME TO THE CIRCUS!?
honestly who the heck do those nctzens think they are?? nct are people. humans. with emotions and feelings. they aren’t circus animals that are available at your disposal whenever you want them. for anyone who doesn’t know what a panic attack and/or sensory overload feels like, it’s crap. and triggering mark to have a panic attack for something that could have been easily avoided on the fan’s side is horrible. is being noticed by them really more important than their health? NO. AND YOU COULD CLEARLY SEE IN THE VIDEO THAT MARK WAS HAVING AN ATTACK SO UNLESS YOUVE NEVER HAD/SEEN ONE YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD BUT WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU TO BACK UP. YOU BACK UP.
MARK IS LITERALLY THE SWEETEST BOY IN THE WORLD AND I KNOW HE ISNT GOING TO BLAME ANYONE FOR THIS SO IM GONNA DO IT FOR HIM. LEAVE THEM ALONE. SUPPORT THEIR MUSIC. BUY THEIR MERCH. VOTE ON MUSIC SHOWS. BUT DO NOT CROWD, PUSH, HARM, SHOUT AT, OR DO ANYTHING THAT CAN AND WILL POTENTIALLY HURT THEM. IT BREAKS TRUST BETWEEN NCT AND NCTZENS AND IT PREVENTS EVENTS AND STUFF FROM HAPPENING IN THE FUTURE, WHICH STINKS FOR FANS WHO HAVE NEVER GOTTEN THE CHANCE TO SEE THEM.
