Chikara's Arrival Part Two: "Helping" in the Computer Labs

July 14th, 2006 (07:58 pm)

current mood: tired

Part One of Chikara's Arrival got him out of the box and dressed. Now he wanted to follow me around the office.

C: What's this place? Huh, huh huh? Why are we in here with the door locked and the lights out? Are you a pervert?

o: Yes, I am a pervert. I read and draw yaoi. Two or more gorgeous men going at it like bunnies - sweating and groaning and making puddles all over the place - are pleasing to my eye. Now, let me finish getting these computers booted up so I can start wiping out the student drives.

C: I am the Master of all I survey!

o: *mumbles* What a boring kingdom...

C: What did you say?

o: Nothing, brat.

C: Oooooh! Pretty blue! It looks cool and tasty! Can I lick it?

o: Sure, lick it, and taste the fingerprints, spit and earwax of students who have gone before you. And don't come whining to me when you catch a cold from the cooties.

C: Yay! Cooties! They're on the screen, huh?

o: *sigh* Along with a lot of other things.

C: Can I play with them?

o: Be my guest.

C: *exasperated sigh* You're just a monkey barrel of fun, aren't you?

o: I can be fun, but I am working right now and need to concentrate.

I should have known better, but I took my eyes off him to work on a delete. I heard the pitter-patter of resiny feet, looked up and saw Chikara on the other side of the room, fascinated by the light in the 'on' switch and the playing with the DVD and CD trays.
A little later, I heard a high giggle so I looked up and did not see him anymore. I walked to the other side of the room and found the brat hiding.
I snuck up on him and heard another giggle.
o: Boo, I found you.

C: Surprise! *squeals happily* So you DO know some games, old woman!

o: How about "Kick the Can" with your resin butt as the can?

C: Ooh, a nasty streak! I likes it!

o: *laughs* I suppose I could keep you occupied for a minute this way.

I loaded up the doll live journal on one of the computers I hadn't worked on yet.

o: This is Shuichi, one of your roommates. He is a JPop singer by trade and is one of the most popular vocalists in Japan.

C: That's a guy? He's really pretty!

o: Yes, he is quite beautiful. Most JPop singers are pretty androgynous, on purpose. But he really is a guy and is quite a scrapper when he needs to be, so don't mess with him. He is also much bigger than you are. Want to see your other roommate?

C: Uh huh!

o: This is Hatori. He is from a very afluent Japanese family and is studying to be a doctor.

C: He looks too serious.

o: He is pretty serious but he has a gentle heart. He likes to read and I usually find him studying much of the time.

C: Sounds borrrrring...
He scrambled over to the mouse I was using and took it from me.

C: So this is how you use the computer? Show me everything NOW!!! NOW NOW NOW!

o: Don't make me deaf in one ear... Sorry, lessons later - I need to get back to work. Just look at the picture page I put up for you for now, okay?

C: *whine* Nooooo... *sigh* Okayyyyyyy.... *sulks*

o: *mumbles* I cannot even imagine what the house will look like if Chibi Sage visits while Chikara is in hyper-mode - Gah!

I finally completed the room and found Chikara leaning up against one of the front row computers, gesturing with his hand.

C: C'mon! It's time to GOOOO!

o: I agree! Off we go!

C: Yay!

I decided to try another tactic in the next lab, so I turned on Beethoven.com and filled the room with classical music, hoping the old phrase, "Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast/breast" would work on a monkey/cat/monster.

o: I promised you some music later, so here it is!

C: Ooh, this is pretty! I liked the rhythms of the other stuff but this is good, too!

o: Good! I like rock, too, but I enjoy this kind of music while I am working, so let's listen to it together while I erase these drives.

Occasionally I looked over and every single time, I found him dancing around to the music and humming off-key.

Finally, the "Nutcracker Suite" came on and I heard a thump. I found Chikara on his back, his head surrounded by speakers, and waving his hands around. His vocal pitch got much better and his little 'lala's were a nice contrast to the orchestra.

o: Do you like this particular piece of music?

C: Yes! I haven't heard it in a long time!

o: Wait until the Xmas holidays...
At the end of the final movement, he sat up elegantly and bowed.

C: Is it time to leave yet? Huh? Huh?

o: Nope. One more room.


After a little kicking, wiggling and yelling, we finally made it to the third lab.

C: *leans back, fidgets and looks bored* Is this the LAST room?

o: Yes. *turns on Beethoven.com again*

C: It's about TIME!

o: Here. Read this. *tosses book in brat's general direction*

C: *opens book* What's this thing? Can I eat it?

o: Can your digestive system process paper? Wait, don't answer that... It's a campus police pamplet. Does it talk about locking up brats in there?

C: I dun know... Let me see! *starts flipping pages*

C: I dun like this book - no pictures * flips pages faster*

o: Deal with it just a little longer.

C: *throws pamplet on floor, plops on stomach and begins kicking feet in the air* I'm BORRRREEEEEDDDDDD!!!!

o: Can you make that louder so the people in the next country can hear you?

C: Bored Bored Bored Bored BORED!

o: So, are you telling me you're bored?

C: Not funny.... * starts to snore*

o: Finally some quiet.
I noticed he had those membranes cats have on their eyes so they can shut down without completely closing their eyes. He sure was cute when he was asleep.

Later on, I heard a scrambling noise and looked back toward the teacher's station.

He was doing a version of Tai Chi.

o: I am done with the last room. Time to go back to my office for some html coding.

C: Yay! No more boring computers I can't play with!

Next up is part three - Chikara wrecks havoc in my office. Until then, I have appreciated you taking the time to look at my photos - thank you!

"-can I eat it?"
Aaah, now he's reminding me a bit of child-like Ryuichi...

You're little guy, he has so much personality.

Trying to eat anything he sees is pretty much Chikara's daily quest. It's a bit like a cat or dog and how they are always sniffing around for something tasty.

It has been fun 'finding' Chikara's personality come to the surface. It was coming into being during these arrival shots - it was so delightful having it just pour into me so quickly and easily that day.

I've noticed his kittenish past life cropping up. The 'thumbs joke' is actually something my brother and I pull all the time, with our cats, too. I guess a lot of owners have a thumbs joke. ("You're lucky I have no thumbs! Bastard. -_-")

My cat Cloven is one of those psycho energetic must-break-everything-especially-peace-evilgenuis types of cats. So I'm doing a lot of projecting unto mr-mister right now. *laugh*

Shuichi looks out the window

I have had many cats in my lifetime, both living with me and living with friends, so I have a lot of info to draw from. You can sometimes see them mentally cursing their lack of thumbs when they cannot get something or get TO something.

Chikara is a real cuddlebug and future photos will show that habit. Poor Shuichi has been finding his lap is not his own much of the time.

I think rat needs to win the lottery so we could all meet at yaoicon one year and have our dolls with us!

I suspect Chikara may have to visit YOU at some point as well. I don't know how he would handle a horndog like Imp, though. Chikara has zero interest in sexual things so far. Maybe he will go into heat - I have no idea right now. He may be centuries old but he is still a child in many ways.

God, he's so adorable.


I love his personality. It's like how I let Miki's come out- the others have pre-determined ones.

Though we'll see how well they fit when they actually get here. :P

Chikara is such a bad cat, but still lovable.

I know when Eiri comes, he and Shu will probably distance themselves more from the rest of them, except for maybe Hatori. The Tokyo guys will hang together and the fey will hang together. That doesn't mean Chikara will not pester Eiri and try to snuggle with Shuichi...

I can so see Chikara doing that and angry-Eiri photostories coming after. XD ♥

Eiri: What is THAT doing in our bed?

Shu: Chikara is just snuggling with me.

Eiri: *grabs catbrat by foot* Back to laundry room with you!
