In NeS1 Post 604, MaybeChild the Writer and Losien the Writer are bored of the male Writers playing video games for the Story. Instead they decide to start altering the costumes for the Characters and dressing them up in fancy outfits with capes, cravats and embroidered lapels. She ends by singing a line from the Scarlet Pimpernel musical.


In the offices, Maybe, who is getting demmed confused by all these piddling video games the boys are playing, continues playing her guitar. Her melancholy medieval tunes keep pouring into the room, and Losien, also tiring of the playstation[Ext 1], leans on Maybe's desk, humming along. Finally, Maybe realizes that she's lost track of where the story has been going.

Maybe: *reading the posts of the past few days* La, but Ante is strange! *glances over her shoulder at the boys, still crowded hypnotically about the playstation* Los, let's see if we can make things a little more... interesting. *eg* Alter their costumes a bit... Begad, who are their tailors? How frightfully drab! First, give those boots a dapper strap, the garters MUST have some snap; oh, cravats should be flounced about their necks, they need stitching on their caps (how bewitching!); gotta drape the capes, puff the cuffs, oh and we absolutely HAVE TO embroider those lapels! Hmm.... oh, we need to smock their frocks, perfume their plumes... And now to finish with some buttons, buckles, ruffles, and lace... Viola! Splendid! It's amazing what a good bit of frou-frou can do for a man, isn't it, Losien? *Losien nods happily*

Maybe starts triumphantly singing "La but someone has to strike a pose and bear the weight of well-tailored clothes, and that is why the Lord created men!"[Ext 2]
