Day 4/28 of gtjseanniversary: technology!
For context, what Jack’s wearing is based off that VR video he just did called To The Top, so… I tried my hand at writing something to go along with my usual doodle! Hope ya enjoy!
There was the telling knock on Mark’s door of a delivery man with no time to wait for a recipient. When he opened the door, he was generally confused before spotting a tiny package on the doorstep, and couldn’t help crack a smile as he carefully picked it up and took it inside.
“Jack? What the heck did you order this time!?”
Mark wasn’t really all that concerned with what his tiny roommate ordered, but it never failed to amaze him that there was some much miniature-sized tech out in the world, like Jack’s VR system, or the rest of his set-up for that matter.
As Mark opened the door to his room, he spotted the small Irish man from his spot on the nightstand.
“What’d’ya mean, I didn’t order anythi- OH! THANK JAYSUS IT FINALLY CAME IN!!”
As Jack excitedly made his way to the bedside, Mark sat down on the bed and handed Jack his package, which he then quickly started to tear apart.
“Hey woah there dude, mind telling me what exactly is in that package that I took SO much care in bringing to you?” He said with a tone of sarcasm.
Jack eyed the man before scoffing with a roll of his eye, “Ya remember that video I did on that cool game ‘To the Top’?” Mark nodded as he continued, excitement rising in his tone. “Well, shortly after that, the developers contacted me and asked if I wanted to try a prototype of a real-life version of the tech in the game!”
As he finished his sentence, Jack reached into the box and pulled out two red blocky-looking gloves that he practically slammed on. Mark watched on in slight worry.
“Uh, did you say, ‘prototype’? Don’t those usually end in disaster? And are you sure you can trust their tech?”
Jack was in the middle of calibrating the strange googles, which he was told would allow him to see the things he could climb using a blue tint, much like the game.
“Oh Mark you worry to much.” He said as he waved his friend away with a gloved hand. “Besides, someone’s gotta try the technology before everyone else!”
“But aren’t you afraid of heights?!”
Jack looked his giant friend in the face through calibrated googles.
Mark sighed in defeat as he readied himself for whatever happened next; Jack giggled in pure excitement as the system finished booting up, giving him full control as he ran start towards Mark’s body, using the googles to aim and decide where to go, and the gloves to stick like a certain spider-themed hero. Mark had to do everything to not jump as he felt a small weight land on his leg with a soft ‘thump’ and loud whooping before seeing a very excited friend bounce off him and to the edge of the bed.
“J-jack?! W-wait, be careful!”
