Yeah. Two of Grace's parents are dead already, one is a squirrel who probably died from squirrel old age already, and the last one is a Lespuko which may or may not be a feral beast.

In other words, your topic is over and shall now be derailed.

So, how about them trains?

Thomas the Tank Engine scarred me as a child.

Those trucks driving into the path of the trains to their death...Christ.

Their alright, but it sucks when you get to a train track and they decide to get all their cars to one area and THEN another Train comes past the very second all those Train Cars have left.

BUT Haylo was NOT talking about her parents Nocturn but her Family, AKA: Vladia, and them.

><, Now I get it, well, sorry Noc, well in this case, "If in some other Alternate EGS Universe where they were alive but everything else went similar to the way the EGS main Universe did-" Would've been how Haylo should've started his initial post on this thread if he wanted people to answer it.

Thank you, I don't know why I didn't get that the first time, no matter, I still say we should move on (As opposed to trains right now, we should wait a page before that becomes our main discussion) what would happen/How might things go/What should Tedd do if he were to formally meet Grace's Family.

Anyone in agreement or you want to talk about the island of Soto some more?

Apology

Postby Haylo on Thu Aug 30, 2007 1:48 pm

I do apologize for being too flippant in the subject line; I was making a reference to the Movie "Meet the Parents" from 2000 (not at all serious, but still dealing with the serious subject of meeting the parents of ones intended), and I was in fact thinking of Dr. Sciuridae (variously calculated as her Grandfather/one of her fathers), along with her brothers and (?sister) as the family to meet. For that mater, she thinks of Mr. Verres as a sort of father, but plainly Tedd has already met him. The thread was intended to be lighthearted, not just a joke.

I was in a train once. It was so awesome, I wrote about it in my diary twice.

Ah Haylo I see what you mean but apparently this thread has been eaten by Trains, you could try (and I do mean that very much so) the EGS: Mayhem board, but we're all usually busy with random stuff (like RPs or pointless poles) but it might stand a better chance.

I must apologize for that, these people take things so literal "Parents" rather than just assuming her living relations like I did, etcetera.

However we could attempt to continue the discussion here and wait for more people interested in the subject to come in and converse with us, whaddaya say?

My first suggestion was going to be Male half-squirrel, same size as Grace, a variant in a slightly lighter brown than Grace

Anyone remember the movie "Stand By Me"? It was about those four kids who go looking for the body of a guy hit by a train.

He is a human. A male human. Being himself is who he needs to be.
Of all the things about Tedd to defend, the very easiest is shape shifting! He might still be ahead of Grace in total forms tested. Only by insisting on

He does raise a point there..... as long as he doesn't lie to them, and say that he's actully a shapeshifter..... I don't see the problem....
