The Lounge of the Adventurer – lots of randomness with sprinkles made of comedy and a filling of our finest quality spite

This… is just so horrible I have to put it under a hide. I’m not even posting it on Parallax Stars.

Prompt: Write a scene driven by off-stage interaction.

[13:23] <DanielHawking> FJDF
[13:23] <DanielHawking> SHIT FUKING OW
[13:23] <Siber> …
[13:24] <DanielHawking> George, memo DanielHawking: DO NOT EVER FUCKING FALL ASLEEP WITH PENS AND PENCILS STILL IN YOUR POCKET
[13:24] <George> So noted.
[13:24] <DanielHawking> george memo DanielHawking: EVER AGAIN
[13:24] <George> So noted.
[13:24] <DanielHawking> george memo DanielHawking: FUCKING IDIOT
[13:24] <George> So noted.
[13:24] * Siber laughs explosively
[13:24] <DanielHawking> JESUS CHRIST THAT HURT
[13:24] * DanielHawking collapses.

[16:52] <+RRoan> NM, what’s the weirdest control-surface name you’ve come across?
[16:52] <+RRoan> Just out of curiosity.
[16:53] <@Number_Muncher> [19:52] <RRoan> NM, what’s the weirdest control-surface name you’ve come across? <= I’m not sure. Flaperon? Eleveron? Ruddervator? Stabillator? Slat?
[16:53] <+RRoan> Flaperon.
[16:53] <+RRoan> Definitely.
[16:54] <+RRoan> That’s almost as good as the word “clopen”.
[16:54] <@Number_Muncher> there exists a beast that can be described only as “eleverflaperon,” but I don’t know the actual name
[16:55] <+DanielHawking> oooh munchei
[16:55] <+DanielHawking> didn’t they use those on the Concorde
[17:01] <@Number_Muncher> wait, Chevrokia. The 747 has Tailerons?
[17:01] <+Chevrokia> yes
[17:01] <@Number_Muncher> ………….. I’m about to shed a tear of joy Chev
[17:01] <+Chevrokia> apparently because the ailerons on the wings can’t roll the aircraft fast enough
[17:05] <+DanielHawking> The 747 needs that sort of control surface to roll
[17:05] <+DanielHawking> it’s a frickin’ big plane
[17:07] <@Juumanistra> Big plane is indeed big.
[17:07] <+Chevrokia> k so i’m gonna have flaperons, tailerons, and fowler flaps
[17:07] <+Chevrokia> strictly speaking, spoilerons too
[17:07] <@Number_Muncher> add slaterons
[17:07] <+DanielHawking> wtf munchie
[17:07] <+DanielHawking> does that even work
[17:08] <+Chevrokia> it could
[17:08] <+DanielHawking> Maybe
[17:08] <+DanielHawking> You guys are silly.
[17:08] <@Number_Muncher> full length segmented slotted flaperons and slaterons with tailerons and spoilers
[17:08] * +DanielHawking builds a plane with two engines on the tail, DC-9 style
[17:08] <@Number_Muncher> and just a normal rudder
[17:08] * +DanielHawking then thrust vectors them
[17:08] <+DanielHawking> THE ENTIRE ENGINE POD ROTATES
[17:09] <+doc_evilonavich> ..I want moar combat straight rocket boosters for aircraft
[17:09] <+candiro> wat
[17:09] <@Number_Muncher> tbh, Slateron/Flaperon isn’t all that crazy, it’s mostly just ailerons and slats that can get used independently and in realtime by the flight computer with a bit of extension capability
[17:10] <@Number_Muncher> though this suggests the creation of a split-wing
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> Don’t slats extend from under the wing in a 180 degree angle?
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> er, 180 degree turn
[17:10] <@Juumanistra> Obviously we require a commercial airliner with ruddervators.
[17:10] * +DanielHawking remembers the 747 landing video
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> ….
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> Juums.
[17:10] * +DanielHawking throttles
[17:10] <+Chevrokia> rudderons
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT WHEN I WAS MAKING THE G850
[17:10] <+DanielHawking> CHRIST
[17:10] <+Chevrokia> no wait
[17:11] <+Chevrokia> ruddervatorons
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH EASIER THAN THE H-TAIL
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> depends on the type, “slat” just refers to a control surface on the front of the wing
[17:11] <@Juumanistra> YES ARA. GET TO WORK REDRAWING.
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> wait, make a V-wing?
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> o_O
[17:11] <@Juumanistra> So that I can do the silly H-tail.
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> V-tail
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> no I want the H-tail
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> no, V-wing
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> sad.gif
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> …
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> V-wing
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> V-wing
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> …
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> Omg
[17:11] <@Number_Muncher> ruddervatorflaperons
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> No
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> Fuck this
[17:11] <+DanielHawking> X-wing
[17:12] <@Number_Muncher> RUDDERVATORFLAPERONS
[17:12] <+DanielHawking> 9G+ TURNS ON COMMERCIAL AIRLINERS
[17:12] <+candiro> oh god
[17:12] <+candiro> what’s going on
[17:12] <@Juumanistra> Entirely solid wings. The only control surfaces are on the tailplanes.
[17:12] <+DanielHawking> NO
[17:12] <+candiro> the lot of you have lost it entirely
[17:12] <+DanielHawking> THE ENTIRE WING IS A CONTROL SURFACE
[17:12] <+Chevrokia> no
[17:12] <+DanielHawking> MISSION ADAPTIVE WING
[17:12] <+Chevrokia> the entire plane
[17:12] <@Juumanistra> I have no idea how we got here, Cand.
[17:13] <+candiro> i’m scared now
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> V-wing
[17:13] <+candiro> oh god
[17:13] <@Juumanistra> Chev and Munchy were talking about control surfaces, then I mentioned the need for a commercial airliner with ruddervators, then it kind of spiraled out of control.
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> Candiro
[17:12] <+Chevrokia> and then we just kept adding on
[17:12] <+Chevrokia> i was talking about perfectly sane control surfaces
[17:13] <+RRoan> all of a sudden this thread got really lol
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> ruddervatorflaperons
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> IT IS THE BEST IDEA WE’VE EVER HAD
[17:13] <+RRoan> CLOOOOOOOOPEN
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> EVER
[17:13] <@Number_Muncher> IN THE HISTORY OF EVER
[17:13] <+candiro> all moving ruddervatorflaperons
[17:13] <+candiro> this frightens me
[17:13] <+RRoan> CLOOOOOOOPERN
[17:13] <+DanielHawking> RUDDERVATORFLAPERSPOILERONS
[17:14] <+DanielHawking> WAIT
[17:14] <+DanielHawking> NO
[17:14] <+RRoan> shock.gif
[17:14] <+DanielHawking> BLOWN UDDERVATORFLAPERSPOILERONS
[17:14] <@Number_Muncher> Ara, make them split surfaces
[17:14] <+DanielHawking> BLOWN RUDDERVATORFLAPERSPOILERONS
[17:14] <@Number_Muncher> so they can do airbraking too
[17:14] <+candiro> oh jesus
[17:14] <+Chevrokia> fowlers
[17:14] <+Chevrokia> make them fowlers
[17:14] <+Chevrokia> triple slotted
[17:14] <+RRoan> I don’t even know whats going on
[17:14] <+RRoan> I suspect zine doesn’t either.
[17:14] <@Number_Muncher> RRoan, you know what happens when a bunch of engineers get together
[17:15] <@Number_Muncher> and get a little excited
[17:15] <@Number_Muncher> and a lot drunk?
[17:15] <+DanielHawking> I am giggly right now
[17:15] <Zine> RRoan-> I rarely know entirely what’s going on
[17:15] <+RRoan> oh yeah urrite NM
[17:15] <@Number_Muncher> well, Windows ME, but besides that
[17:15] <+candiro> these things get *built*


ABOUT THE HAWKING CHILD

My name is Daniel Hawking.

There are three fractions that make up this persona.

One of which is sealed closed via the physical realm of the world. One of which is unlocked via the medium known as the Internet. One of which is standing tall, watching over the wondrous horizon in front of him.

Of the first, this is the one most who have met me see, the one shunned, the one unappreciated, the one treated as entertainment instead of a colleague, the one shunted off to the side.

Of the second, only a select few have been able to meet. Coherency and truthful thoughts are the hallmarks of those knowing this fraction, as are trust and belief. Most of the dearest friends know of this section.

Of the third...? Revival of the finest order, as the phoenix of a prince rises from his own ashes. The adventurer, a traveler.

Regardless of fates, this is who I am now.

Daniel Hawking. Prince of Aralonia.

One of many.

A representative of Aralonia.

Together, the collective mindset of a nation.
