Ask the Group, Episode 3: Pumped Up

Alexa: *singing the Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time boss music while she plays Crisis Caverns*

Black Widow: *walking in* Hey, Alexa.

Alexa: Oh, hey, Blackie. What’s up?

Black Widow: Yeah, Itch wanted to come up and annoy you telling you that more questions are in, but he said he’s too lazy to get off the couch and stop watching Teen Titans Go.

Alexa: Phew, thank Isanam-wait, did you say Teen Titans Go?

Black Widow: That’s what Itch was watching, yeah.

Alexa: *dashes off to the living room* WHICH EPISODE?

Itch: I’m pretty sure it’s 40%, 40%, 20%.

Alexa: Yes, I loved that one.

Binary Bard: Hey, what’s all the hubbub in here? I’m trying to work on my speech uni- GAH!

*sparks fly from Alexa’s computer*

Alexa: NO! NOT MY EDITING COMPUTER!

Binary Bard: 01001000 01100101 01111001 00101100 00100000 01101001 01110100 00100111 01110011 00100000 01101110 01101111 01110100 00100000 01100001 01101100 01101100 00100000 01101101 01111001 00100000 01100110 01100001 01110101 01101100 01110100 00101110 00100000 01011001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01110111 01100101 01110010 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01101111 01101110 01100101 00100000 01101001 01101110 01110100 01100101 01110010 01110010 01110101 01110000 01110100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101101 01100101 00100000 01100110 01110010 01101111 01101101 00100000 01110111 01101111 01110010 01101011 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101111 01101110 00100000 01101001 01110100 00101110

Itch: Alexa, what does that mean?

Alexa: The binary speak or the spark from my computer?

Itch: The binary.

Alexa: Oh, that. Hang on a sec… add a zero… He said “Hey, it’s not all my fault. You were the one interrupting me from working on it.” Oh, that is a big load of chocolate fudging cr-

*many minutes of arguing and Teen Titans Go watching later*

Alexa: Alright, now for the questions.

TAS: *plays the final fantasy victory fanfare*

Alexa: Let’s see here, who do we have first…

Fierce Flyer to Alexa: Name three of your favorite video games.

Alexa: To start off, Skate 3. I’ve only logged 8 and a half hours or so because most of the time my parents want the TV. Next, Geometry Dash, because I just like challenges. And for the third, well, that’s hard to choose. Maybe Call of Duty?

Black Widow: What are those games?

Alexa: Skate 3, skateboarding simulator featuring many popular skaters like Rob Dyrdek, Lizard King, and many more. Geometry Dash, platform if game with a customizable cube. Call of Duty, first person shooter.

Black Widow: Ooh, Skate 3 sounds like fun.

Alexa: Let’s try it out afterward, then.

Fierce Flyer to Black Widow: Can you speak more than one language?

Black Widow: Yes, actually. I can speak French very well.

Alexa: TAS, translator. I wanna test this.

TAS: *pulls up an audio translator, currently recording, and hands it to Alexa*

Alexa: *puts the microphone in the phone near Black Widow’s mouth*

Black Widow: Si le traducteur peut comprendre cela, Alexa a fait du bon travail en programmant cela.

Alexa: *watches the translation app, reading the result* “If the translator can understand this, Alexa did a good job programming that.” Aw, thanks, Blackie.

Black Widow: Ne m’appelle pas Blackie.

Alexa: Yup, we’re done here.

Fierce Flyer to Captain Crawfish: How’d you get that pegleg?

Captain Crawfish: Aye, matey, it be a long story. I was sailing the seven seas, when suddenly a shark hit me ship! We tried aimin’ the cannons at it, but te no avail. The shark came on board and bit me leg off! The doctor below deck was a nice lad, though, and he patched it all up and gave me a nice lookin’ pegleg. I’ve kept it ever since.

Alexa: The TL;DR? He got his leg bit off by a shark and the doctor gave it to him.

Purple Claw to Captain Crawfish: do u smell good

Alexa: Smell test! Itch, what scents?

Itch: *sniffs all over Captain Crawfish’s body* A scent of the ocean breeze in his hair, a breath of oranges, and his clothing smells fresh. I’d say he passed.

Alexa: Welp, there’s your answer.

Lucky Wing to everyone: SO anyone romantically interested in anyone else?

Alexa: *blushing as he tries to hold back the smile*

Itch: Who is it, Alexa?

Alexa: N-Nobody… Nobody…

Binary Bard: 01001111 01101000 00101100 00100000 01110000 01101100 01100101 01100001 01110011 01100101 00101110 00100000 01011001 01101111 01110101 01110010 00100000 01100010 01101111 01100100 01111001 00100000 01101100 01100001 01101110 01100111 01110101 01100001 01100111 01100101 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01110011 01101000 01101111 01110111 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101101 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100001 01110100 00100000 01101001 01110100 00100111 01110011 00100000 01110011 01101111 01101101 01100101 01101111 01101110 01100101 00100000 01101001 01101110 00100000 01110100 01101000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01110010 01101111 01101111 01101101 00101110 00100000 01010011 01110000 01101001 01101100 01101100 00101110 (Oh, please. Your body language is showing me that it’s someone in this room. Spill.)

Alexa: N-no…

TAS: *pleading with baby eyes*

Alexa: *sighs* Fine. I never wanted to let this be known but… I’ve got a crush on Blackie…

Everyone minus BB and BW: “What?!?”

Binary Bard: 01010111 01101000 01100001 01110100 00111111 00100001 00111111 (What?!?)

Black Widow: Why me?

Alexa: It’s a long story. TL;DR, you seem like just the person that I’d have similar tastes with. Everyone else, spill.

Black Widow: Well, since you just leaked you had a crush on me, I guess I could say I’ve got a crush on you…

Binary Bard: 01010000 01110010 01101001 01101110 01100011 01100101 01110011 01110011 00100000 01000101 01101100 01111001 01100001 01101110 01100001 00101110 00100000 01001101 01111001 00100000 01100011 01111001 01100010 01101111 01110010 01100111 00100000 01110100 01110010 01100001 01101110 01110011 01100110 01101111 01110010 01101101 01100001 01110100 01101001 01101111 01101110 00100000 01110111 01100001 01110011 00100000 01110011 01101111 00100000 01001001 00100000 01100011 01101111 01110101 01101100 01100100 00100000 01110100 01110010 01111001 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01101001 01101101 01110000 01110010 01100101 01110011 01110011 00100000 01101000 01100101 01110010 00101100 00100000 01100001 01101110 01111001 01101000 01101111 01110111 00101110 (Princess Elyana. My cyborg transformation was so I could try to impress her, anyhow.)

Dr. Hare: Well, I don’t entirely know who they are, but I feel like—

Itch: In a parallel universe, you have a crush on someone who may be asking the question in this universe, but in the other universe you’re part of their group?

Dr. Hare: *stays silent for a bit* Actually, that’s the most accurate assumption there is.

TAS: *plays the Illuminati theme*

Captain Crawfish: Well, there was this one mermaid lass that flopped up on deck one time that I had my eye on, but she said she thought pirates were gross and flopped back off.

Director D: Nobody. I took away people’s hair, nobody would think that’s a good reason to hook up with me.

Itch: Nobody for me as well. I’m too much of a grump to get in a relationship, according to Alexa.

TAS: *shrugs*

Lucky Wing to everyone again: What’s you guys’s thoughts on killing?

Itch: Who is it we’re looking, per se?

Alexa: Itch, it’s a question on our thoughts about it,not orders to do it. I kinda agree with you, though.

Dr. Hare: Blowing up the moon would’ve done it for me.

Binary Bard: Knights fighting my robots just to try saving Princess Elyana did it fo-oh, hey, my speech unit got fixed.

Black Widow: I’m an art thief, not a murderer.

Director D: Hair theft is what mattered to me.

Captain Crawfish: I only kill those who take me treasure.

TAS: *shrugs again*

Alexa: Well, that’s enough of a question round for me. Remember, ask me, Blackie, Cap’n Crawfish, Director D, Binary Bard, Itch, and TAS, whatever you want. Anyway, during the break before the outro, me and Blackie decided we’d try a relationship, and so we’re gonna head out on a date. Itch is probably gonna go explore parallel universes again, TAS will continue making memes, and whatever else the Villains do is up to them. Keep poppin’ it, Poptropicans.

Ask the Group Episode 2: Rolling Around at the Speed of Sound

(because that’s apparently what Lucky’s doing… everyone else needs to start submitting questions, because it’s almost like the group wants someone other than lucky :0)

(also yes, alexa’s the name of a guy in this series… don’t question it.)

 

Alexa: *scrolling through songs on his touchscreen laptop* Alright, what song to I remix today?

Itch: *grabbing the door frame and reaching in* Yo, Alexa!

Alexa: I never seem to get some peace and quiet around here… What?

Itch: Questions are here again.

Alexa: Wha- wai-… HOW?

TAS: *bolting in, pressing a button* GOTTA GO FAST… GOTTA GO FAST… GOTTA GO FASTER, FASTER, FASTER FASTER FASTE-

Black Widow: *walks in, seeing TAS running around, and clotheslines him*

TAS: *rolling his eyes*

Director D: Hey, blame this Lucky Wing girl. She’s probably got all the time she ever wants to spend on the computer.

Alexa: Trust me, I know her… Yeah, she’s not got that. Anyway, Itch, the envelope with the questions, please.

Itch: *hands Alexa the envelope*

Alexa: *scans over the contents of it* Finally, more than 1 question. Let’s see here. First up…

LW to Binary Bard: Have you ever had a glitch in your system before?

Binary Bard: Oh, plenty of times. Glad there’s at least one person other than myself who knows how to fix them.

Alexa: Hey, at least I know the basics of Javascript.

Cap’n Crawfish: Aye, what does that mean, landlubber?

Alexa: Trust me, Crawfish… You wouldn’t understand it unless you were a “landlubber.”

 

LW to Captain Crawfish: How do you feel about most people hating your island?

Alexa: Alright, alright, first thing, au contraire, my good fellow. Skullduggery and Steamworks were the longest islands in the game. And unlike me documenting these posts for publ- I mean, personal use, I like to waste time, so there’s at least one person who likes Skullduggery.

Everyone except for TAS: *staring at him*

TAS: *realizing it’s silent, and pressing a button on his phone that makes a cricket chirping sound*

Alexa: …What? Just stating my opinion… Continue, Crawfish.

Cap’n Crawfish: All I was going te say was that it serves ’em right fer stealing me rightfully owned treasure. And goin’ into me mind after a while? That’s just real scurviness there.

Itch: Is scurviness even a word?

Alexa: *Googling it* Scurviness, the quality or state of being scurvy. The more you know.

 

LW to Director D: Hi. Do you still want to kill me?

Director D: Uhm… Alexa, why does this person think I want to kill them?

Alexa: I don’t know… Maybe it’s because-

Itch: The Director D this Lucky person knows is really just a clone of our Director D… Or maybe ours is a clone of theirs… OR MAYBE THEY’RE BOTH CLONES!

TAS: *playing the illuminati theme on a keyboard app*

Alexa: Let’s just put a great big No on that and move on…

 

LW to Black Widow: How was the last romance novel you read, Wid? *winks obnoxiously*

Black Widow: I don’t read romance novels.

Alexa: Aw, come on, Blackie. You gotta have SOME romance novel in your library.

Black Widow: I assure you I do not.

Itch: Then I want to see proof. *walks towards BW’s Room*

Black Widow: *blocking the way* NO, NO, NO. Alright, I’ll admit it, I do read romance novels. The last one was called Gamer Girl or something like that…

Alexa: Hey, I’ve read that one!

Binary Bard: 01011001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01101000 01100001 01110110 01100101 00111111 (You have?)

Alexa: Yes. The one with the girl who likes to make manga, and the guy who’s into drama and all that, right?

Black Widow: Yup. You know, we’d both make the perfect Madelyn.

Alexa: You got that right. *fist bumps Black Widow*

Dr. Hare: …Did I just see the Poptropican I know is the grumpiest have something in common with one of the cheeriest?

TAS: *presses a button* Sugoi, sugoi, sugoi!

Itch: Whatever. Why haven’t me or TAS gotten a question yet?

Alexa: Hmm.. Because you’re being impatient?

TAS: *presses a button of a bunch of people yelling*

 

Alexa: Anyway, looks like that’s it for another session. Remember, you can ask any of us questions and we’ll be there to answer them. Black Widow, Captain Crawfish, Director D, Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, me, Itch, TAS, whoever.

TAS: *tries to press a button on his phone, but to no avail*

Alexa: TAS. No more “just do it” buttons.

TAS: *makes a frowny face*

Alexa: Just ask some villains some questions. Ask alter egos some questions. Ask me some questions. Ask you pet to ask any of us a question. Just please. PLEASE. Don’t ask Lucky Wing to ask us a question.

Itch: Isn’t that a bit rude?

Alexa: Coming from the master of rude back in the days of Wattpad, apparently. Keep poppin’ it, Poptropicans. Me and the group are going to go have a bonding session.

Ask the Group Ep. 1: I couldn’t wait.

Alexa: *whistling Insterstellar Retribution by DBOYD* What to do today… Ah! Roleplaying on Discord sounds fu-

TAS: *walks into room, pressing a button on their phone* Hold up.

Alexa: Whatcha got, TAS?

TAS: *hands Alexa a letter, pressing another button* It’s dangerous to go alone, take this!

Alexa: Alright, could you stop with the memes?

TAS: *presses another button* Nope.

Alexa: *sighs* Whatever. What is this anyway? *opens up the letter, reading it* Oh, a question for the group. Everyone get in here!

*seconds pass*

Itch: Alright, what is it?

Captain Crawfish: Aye, matey?

Dr. Hare: Stop talking like that, you dolt.

Crawfish: Aye, it’s how I learned. It’s… intimidating.

Itch: Eh, whatever.

Alexa: Stop your bickering. The question’s to one person, but I thought some of the rest of you would like to comment on it. *ahem*

Lucky Wing to Dr. Hare: 2 words: carrot flambé. Sound familiar?

Dr. Hare: Did you say… carrot flambé?

Alexa: Yup.

Dr. Hare: That… Sounds… AMAZING!!!!

TAS: *presses a button, making an excited “Oooooooooohhhhhh!”*

Alexa: But is it familiar?

Dr. Hare: Hmm… Nah.

Itch: The question is, does it improve night vision?

Alexa: Yeah. I do remember my social studies teacher saying that carrots don’t make your vision better, but it ups your night vision… Hey, Dr. Hare, you mind if I steal some of your carrots?

Dr. Hare: What? No! They’re my carrots!

 

Alexa: And sadly, that’s the only question.

TAS: *button press, making a sad trombone tune*

Alexa: Just remember, you can ask anyone questions. Me, TAS, Itch, Black Widow, Director D, Captain Crawfish, Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, any combination of us, just send ’em in and we’ll answer them.

TAS: *button press* Just do it!

Alexa: And as always, keep poppin’ it!

A Good Reason For Me To Stay Active On This Blog

Salutations, everyone! Alexa here, wondering why in Amaterasu I haven’t posted in a while. Ah, well, anyways…

So I’m checking the blogs like usual and I see that Lucky Wing posted another episode of Ask the Villains, where people ask Dr. Hare, Director D, Black Widow, Captain Crawfish, Binary Bard, and Lucky/E/Admin/whatever names she refers to herself as if she’s asked a question. And a thought popped into my mind: What if I did my own Q&A things? So I’m going to be—

TAS: *presses a button on their phone* asuh dude

Itch: Why am I here again?

Alexa: Hey! I told you guys not to come out early! I was just about to make the announcement.

Itch: Yeah, but Director D said you already had, so I came out, but I guess TAS here sped in front of me.

TAS: *presses another button* yea boiiiii

DD: *snickering in distance*

Me: Oh, for Izanagi’s sake, I thought I caged you all.

BW: Blame Itch.

Itch: *smirking*

Me: Itch, you are the most rebellious person I have ever seen and you-

CC: Should walk the plank.

Me: Why do I keep getting interrupted?!?

Binary Bard: 01001010 01110101 01110011 01110100 00100000 01101101 01100001 01101011 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01100110 01110010 01101111 01101110 01110100 01100110 01101100 01101001 01110000 01110000 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01100001 01101110 01101110 01101111 01110101 01101110 01100011 01100101 01101101 01100101 01101110 01110100 00100000 01100001 01101100 01110010 01100101 01100001 01100100 01111001 00100001 (Just make the frontflipping announcement already!)

Me: Right. *ahem* Anyway, as I was saying, I’m making a Q&A series as well! Asking the big 4 villains, Director D, and then myself and my “alter-egos,” as I like to refer to them.

Itch: We’re not alter egos. We’re pieces of your subconscious.

TAS: *plays the Illuminati theme through their phone*

Me: Just shut up until the chocolate-fudging questions come in. Like I was saying… *glaring at Itch* …you can ask questions directed towards Black Widow, Captain Crawfish, Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, Director D, Itch, TAS, and even me if you want to. So, submit those questions…

TAS: *presses another button* Just do it!

Me: …and keep poppin’ it!

 

(The TL;DR? Making a Q&A series with a few Poptropica villains, submit questions and they’ll be answered. Have fun and eat chicken!
