is a tattletale

“Rest assured, Tattletale, you do,” Über proclaimed.  He was the sort of person who proclaimed, announced, broadcasted and declared.

Ahaha, I like him already.

Just like Grue’s power altered his voice to make him sound haunting and inhuman, Über’s power made him sound like the guy who narrated trailers for action movies or late night commercials.  Overdramatic, intense about everything he said, no matter how mundane.  Like someone overacting the role of a gallant knight in a kid’s movie.

That’s… not his only power, right?

I suppose you could fit this into “video game themed” by saying he’s the guy who goes “ROUND TWO - FIGHT!” in fighting games or something.

Also I’m now thinking of Jamie from SU.

A soft clapping answered her.  It was slow, unenthusiastic to the point of being sarcastic.

…I can’t help but imagine Aquamarine from Steven Universe.

“Brilliantly deduced,” the same person that had been clapping spoke out.  As Tattletale whipped her head around, I took a few steps back from the storage locker, to get a better look at the two people who stood on the roof.

Hrm, these people have now seen Tattle in action, using her power in a way that’s clearly not reading anyone’s minds. Let’s hope they don’t spread the word.

They were standing with one leg higher than the other, to keep from sliding off the angled roof, and both were wearing identical costumes.

Could these be Über and Leet? I mean, I don’t have any evidence for that than them being a themed duo, but still.

The costumes sported blue man-leotards with broad belts cinched around their waists, skintight white sleeve and leggings.  Their hoods were elastic, clinging to their heads so they left only a window for the face, and each sported a single white antenna.

Antennas? Interesting. Could be aesthetic and possibly be evidence towards these two actually being Über and Leet, or functional and do… something. Or both.

Of all colors, their gloves, boots and the balls at the top of their antennae were bubblegum pink.  Their faces were obscured by oversize goggles with dark lenses.

One thing’s for sure, they’re colorful characters.

Other than their costumes, though, they couldn’t have been more different.  One of the figures was scrawny, with a weak chin and a bad slouch.  The other had a sculpted physique, broad shouldered and tall, the lines of his muscles clearly visible through his skintight costume.

Reminds me of the Insane Clown Posse, but the scrawny one sounds a bit smaller than Shaggy 2 Dope.

“Über and Leet,” Tattletale greeted them,

Oh hey, it was them!

“I can’t tell you two how relieved I am.  For a few seconds, I thought we had something to be worried about.”

so with the news about geoff taking a sabbatical, my brain did the “ridiculous headcanon” thing it does and imagined fake ah crew geoff getting burned out (”because organizing you assholes is like trying to herd a fucking swarm of hornets”) and deciding to go on vacation for a while to recharge

and geoff’s basically like “do not call me unless there is an emergency,” and for geoff an emergency consists of:

  • the actual, literal apocalypse
  • nothing else
  • do not call him

but geoff pretty quickly finds out that for the crew, an emergency can be:

  • “did you pack underwear” —jack
  • “i can’t find the remote” —gavin
  • “geoff please i can’t find it call me back” —gavin
  • “gavin and i are arguing about the probability of flipping three coins and the– geoff? hello? did you hang up on me?” —ryan
  • “ryan ended his murder break because of an argument with gavin and is trying to blow up everything in the tri-county area” —michael
  • “michael’s a fucking tattletale” —ryan
  • “i’m drunk and i wrote a rap about you here listen” —jeremy
  • “i’m drunk and jeremy wrote a rap about you and i beatboxed and it’s amazing please answer your phone” —lindsay
  • “i’m drunk and weepy and i miss you” —virtually everyone, on the same night
  • (“i’m sober and annoyed and please save me” —ray)

geoff bursts into the penthouse two weeks before he’s supposed to return and everybody’s basically like what the hell are you doing geoff you’re supposed to be relaxing and geoff has a conniption fit
