HPN WW #17: The Faculty *STUDENTS, PILLHEAD, GOTH WIN*

There are worse ways to spend the time, but not many.

EPILOGUE: STUDENT BODY TRIUMPHANT

The surviving members of Balm High Class of '99 decided to put together a Time Capsule for the kids who will come after them.

One by one those left standing added something meaningful to them, and/or something cherished by those who didn't make it. Thigs too painful to hold on to directly but which definitely shouldn't be lost or forgotten.

A windows 98 install disc [Pants]
A tamogatchi egg [Takako]
A hollowed out crucifix necklace [Emily]
The keys to the grotto [Jeff from Minnesota]
A six pack of budweiser and a foam middle finger [StoneCold]
Several back issues of the Balm Army Review [Geoff]
A sketchbook full of really awesome concept art [T.E.S.]
A fireax [Wendy]
A lacrosse stick [Separator]
The answer key to all of Miss Pissman's history tests, with dirty cartoons drawn in ["Slime"]
Season 1 of Dawson's Creek on VHS [Joey]
A lighter [Rayzer]
Assorted Jack Chick Tracts [Caroline Bill]
A little black book with contact info for half the senior class entered [Ankh the Worm]
A dimebag and some incense [Casimir Powers]
A pack of clove cigarettes [Lanny]
One Student ID Card with badly chewed up edges, and a straightened out bobby pin [Veruca]
A copy of the official recording of Senior Ball [Ahab Plant]
A copy of the AD&D Player's Handbook [Jefry Efreet]
A homemade Venom suit [Peter]
The Student Handbook with all the school rules of dress code and behavior [the ironically nicknamed Ron "Narc" Rulefollower]
A set of dancing sticks [Hector]
An essay laying out all the evidence that proves Tupac, Elvis, and JFK are all actually still alive as of December 1998 [Vixen Mudd]
A homemade recording of every episode of My So Called Life [Jared "Metersk" Palmetto]
A Prom Queen's Crown [Cat Starchild]
And, after a little playful debate, one shirt from Abercrombie and Fitch [Devin "Uni" Lima]

Along with the above, the class throws in a sealed letter. Addressed to "The Future" across the envelope, it reads as follows:

"Dear Future,

We had to fight real hard for you to even have a chance to exist. A bunch of us didn't make it. Some of us even got converted and we had to kill each other for a while. It totally sucked. I know you probably don't think about it much, or at all. It's part of being young. I didn't think about this shit either until like a couple weeks ago. Look, I'm not saying you have to kiss our ass forever. Our parents took that stance with us and it's so lame. But like, show some respect when you see us. And don't forget about us. And don't waste what we did by wasting what you have. That'd suck. Life is like, fucking precious, and shit.

We dedicate this Time Capsule to you.

Sincerely,
Vanessa "Veruca" Balanced, lead singer of Systyr"

Lanny uses his chalk to write

"DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 2019"

Across the outer shell, and with that, the Class Of '99 seals up the Time Capsule, and everyone... jock, nerd, tweaker, loner, preppie, it doesn't matter... picks up a shovel and starts digging.



FIN

Oh, and I've been sitting on this .gif for my own death lore, but since that never came up, I'll use it here.

Veruca Balanced has one last message for the aliens:

Good Game to all. Thank you for letting me pretend to be a girl on the internet. :?

You're really not going to like my next couple of posts then. :D


ATTENTION ALL GOOD TEAMMATES:

This was a deeply satisfying win because virtually all of you contributed.

Stakeout: Thank you for coming at me hard. Having to stand up to you made me a little bit better player. Having Jordan be fake was a better idea and I should've stolen it. The petty rivalry with Jeff helped define Veruca and I can see an alternate time line where he lived longer and they played out a cliche scene where they cussed each other out until they made out. Also I think the confusion you stirred up about my exact role was armor I sorely needed. So you helped out.

Narc Blossom: Under The Bleachers, the safe space semi private channel, was a wonderful honeypot. Separator: this was how we caught you. Good job.

Metersk: thanks for being so cagey. It was good instincts. Glad we were finally able to link up the popular kid/chess club cabal of doom, especially while Palmer was still around.

Palmer and Duke: the proto cabal. Indispensable work behind the scenes, even outside of your role powers. Which you used wonderfully. Duke? CLUTCH alert. MVP candidates, both of you. Palmer found all the neutrals, and the drunk security guard. Most of the good specials, really. Magnificent networking.

Werd: I remember you saying a month or so back you had the perfect tanner strategy in mind, and were waiting for your chance to use it. Was this it? Beautiful.

Ecto: Tanner #2. Thank you for effectively siding with us, even if it was more to teach team evil a lesson. You opened the door for us, no doubt.

Laserblast: OH MY FUCKING GOD DUDE. In awe. EPIC.

DRAGONS: I never trust you as much as I should, eh "lone wolf"? Solid villager work, sorry we couldn't vet you until the end, but you did better on your own anyway. And as always, thank you for your ability to rein in some of my CIFOM, more than most.

Catullus: Co-captain of the Clashing Clique Cabal yesterday. You brought Ampersand in, or at least were doing so at the end.

Ampersand: You have the best pure poker face in our little society here, imho. No one can figure out what you are, ever. Thank you for your scrupulous doubt even of your own self. He thought he was the DSG even after 2 correct scans.

Casimir and Ankh: Thank you for throwing in with us. I hope my sucking up to you guys played a bit part in that :)

LOD: I learn more on how to improve my game from you every time, ally or opponent. Thanks for making a bunch of noise with me, and being good council in the proto cabal days.

PIERROT: You killed Mudd with the Molly. That alone was worthwhile. Good work staying invisible and keeping yourself in the game and helping.

Pantsoclock: Our LEAKMASTER. You were critical in getting the right info out about Fuckles and Dragons and others. Thank you!

Phillipe: You are a solid teammate who doesn't get nearly enough respect. My best move was believing in you from the start. And you were right about Bread all along. I should never have started to talk you out of using your OD kill shot on her.

If I forgot to mention you, I'm sorry. Just because I didn't see your contribution didn't mean you didn't make it.

also BILL: you were technically our opponent but you had a virtually impossible win condition and maybe it's just because you haven't been on much but you didn't whine once, and you played it as best you could and probably the only way you can. Thanks for trying, I hope you had fun regardless and are still into our fun and weird little hobby here.



And to our opponents: I never completely counted you out until Bread threw in the towel while I was at work. There are reasons for that.

Thanks guys.

Also thank you to Alice for putting this all together, and to Luke for helping AND indulging my Layne Staley parody death lore I had pre-prepared because I knew at least one person would no-show.

Still waiting to finally be on an evil team with you someday and learn a few things (a lot of things). Sorry for blowing ya off in DM. It was TACTICAL and I was doing a lot of that. :lol:

Thanks VH. I think everyone played well in the face of tough odds and we also caught some breaks. Thanks for being my main sounding board and partner in crime after duke died. The secret is out that you're good at this game (unfortunately for you maybe :P ).

Also, reading the spreadsheet I am a little sad that the tanner's bottle of pills only converted a new tanner once.

Remember how we thought it was going to keep happening?

Sorry DRAGONS. :( I know the possibility endless parade of contagious tannerism perturbed you, but I think you know how I feel about the idea.

:twisted:

Big thank you to everybody who was willing to keep slack backchannel RP up with Veruca.

Trask and Catullus, and Kit, I remember you the most. Cafeteria and Grotto Crew were fun too.

Oh I see you have attempted to cover up the deprecated nature of this box with a sticker that has unfortunately been reversed.
Just like I had to reverse my opinion of your role in this game.
