"Edison Balls...? I... um, appreciate the offer, but I'll pass on that," Maria said, raising an eyebrow as Mok described the devices to them.

Even if they weren't technically drugs, according to him at least, perhaps Maria shouldn't have been wholly surprised that the celebrities of this world would indulge in such vices too. Of course, it was mostly in other countries that her own world's celebrities used such substances. Over here, at least, she'd definitely lose her career if someone even so much as started a rumor that she did.

"Hmph, well, I do not even have much choice other than to explore, so I suppose that is what I'll have to settle for," Tsubasa shrugged.

"You almost sound jealous you didn't even get to try them out," Maria, 22, teased with a soft giggle to Tsubasa, 19.

"That is not what I was getting at," the blue-haired girl grunted irritably, to Maria's further amusement. "In any case, it is as the Doctor said. Better to always keep one's own mind sharp at all times," she nodded, standing next to the Time Lord as they awaited Toad's tour.

"Yes, yes, I understand," Maria breathed, before walking over to the Doctor's other side, looking up at him with her hands folded behind her back as he spoke of humans. "Well, I suppose I can't deny some parts of that, Doctor. People like us are always getting lost somehow, in every sense of the word, but once we find our way, we really are capable of accomplishing amazing things. That's what I wanna inspire other people to do with my music, at least, and honestly, it seems like it's a hobby of yours too. Or am I wrong, Doctor?" She said with a wry smile.

"Hmm..." Mok gripped his chin in thought before snapping his fingers. "Toad! How about you give our guests a tour? The ones who'd like one, of course. If you're more interested in splitary exploration, however...my personal quarters might be a bit fun. I have quite a bit of memorabilia there. And it's all insured just in case..." He winked. "So go wild."

Zip seemed absolutely delighted that people were interested in Uncle Mikey. He'd already put on a horned hat (no doubt some sort of show-related thing), and happily showed off a doll of a strange little clown.

View attachment 10396

"Uncle Mikey is only the best show in the whole wide world! He teaches you so many things, like colors, and how to tell your left from your right, and what to do when you accidentally swallow nuclear waste!"

"You'd be surprised how handy that one ended up being," Sleazy said.

@Lucky @Takumi

"Tch! C'mon, ain't it obvious?" Murdoc reclined fully on the couch, hands propping up the back of his head. "Mok didn't want us runnin' around his house! Can't say I blame the ol' bloke...I'd drug you for this entire damn trip if I could!" He seemed to be taking it well that Mok had essentially done the same to him. "Too bad, though. I wanted to see if I could dig up info on my ship...ah, well. Nice to relax, innit?"

@Capri

---

"Yeah, let's go!" Taking Meiji's hand, Rin rushed out into the hallway, but then stopped. "Uhh...where should we go?"

@Takumi
Colors. Gris knew about colors. The pretty pinks and purples of the oncoming night. The soft yellow of lights, the blues of the sea and the greens of the forest. Black darkness, like thick ink...yeah, she knew about colors well.

Zip seemed happy, excited, talking about Uncle Mikey's show. That was nice. Gris listened as he went on, a bit confused by the last bit about nuclear waste but deciding not to mention it.

"Uncle Mikey sounds...fun." She replied with a small smile.

@Yun Lee @Lucky

When Rin rushed out into the hall, dragging Meiji along the white haired android snorted in amusement when asked where to go next.

"Well, let's take a peek in the closest room and see what's in it?" She replied, trying to find the closest room in question.

"As long as we don't go messing with anything that seems a little odd I think we should be fine." She added after a moment of thought.

"My, you truly are excited for the garden, aren't you?" Mok asked Evan, a warning tone under the polite manner of speaking. "You know, you might be better off staying with Zip in this case. I fear growing up you missed all the fairy stories about people who ruined their lives by doing exactly what they were told not to do."

"That mean you're gonna kill us if we go in your garden?" Hitoya asked, crossing his arms.

"Hmhm...of course not. But you're all staying in my home for the next three days, so I suggest humoring my little request." He fixed Evan with another look. "I'm not about to risk my priceless collection of plants for someone who surely gets to see trees and flowers any time he wants in his own world."

Margaret quickly cleared her throat, sidling up next to Toad. "Should we get going? I'd love to see more of this place..."

"Yeah, all aboard!" Toad motioned for people to follow him as he started out the door. "First stop: Mok's rooms!"

@Lucky @Ver @Jeremi

Zip was practically shaking with excitement as his new friends expressed interrst in Uncle Mikey. "Okay! Howsabout you sit down and maybe get some snacks, I'll get his show on." He started typing away on the control panel. "Do you guys have TV in your world? What's it like?"

@Takumi @Lucky

---

"Okay!!" All giggles, Rin took a left turn and started walking down a hallway. She stopped cicking her head. "Do you hear that?" She pointed to an upcoming form in the road. "I think someone's singing on the left...but we can go right if you want?"

"We don't have tvs in my world. It's a big place, with big buildings in places like....deserts, forests and deep oceans. There even some buildings tall enough in the sky, but a lot of them are mostly rubble now. I haven't...seen people that look like me in a long time." Gris tried to explain. As pretty as her world could be, there was bit of loneliness to it.

@Yun Lee @Lucky

Meiji took a moment to listen when Rin mentioned singing, before turning to her fellow android.

"Let's check it out, and if we need to, we can head back and go right?" Meiji replied. Maybe it was Cinderella?

"That does sound about right," The Doctor nodded to Mok. "If someone can't follow direction then well...what are they really?" He pointed at Mok. "Of course he's not going to kill anyone! He's a real gentleman! Letting us all stay in his wonderful home!"

Picking up what Margaret was selling the Doctor started to shoo them along. "Yes let's hurry along now! The big house won't introduce itself after all! Unless it was a smarthouse...but I don't think it's a smarthouse."

But We Were Happy
Evan Hansen


Evan had missed the warning tone at first, but caught the tone from the next statement. " I don't know any fairy stories, or many stories for that matter. My dad left me when I was four and my mom was always working, so it was mostly just me by myself. And it's kind of hard to read a book to yourself to fall asleep. Those sound like sad stories. I guess that is also true, I'll stop going. I do want to know where things are in the house.... like the bathroom." It had been a while since he had tended to his broken arm. " The bandage on my broken arm does need to be changed often," he replied, hoping on the tour and being quiet, hoping there was a place to at least see the gardens, even if he didn't get to go to them.


@Yun Lee @Jeremi @Ver

Cooper Reid

Cooper wasn't exactly hungry, but he decided that entertaining the other being was important to the rest of the group touring the house. " TV is something we have back home. There's a lot of different shows, some might argue that there are too many. Shows about a lot of different things. Shows based on things that really happened, that sort of stuff."

"Yes, yes, we're right behind you, Doctor," Tsubasa spoke light-heartedly on behalf of both herself and Maria, continuing to walk with the Time Lord and the others on the tour with them. "Honestly, has anybody ever told you how incorrigible you can be? I feel like more often than not, I can hardly keep up with you."

Maria herself otherwise said nothing, silently curious about what she was going to be seeing in these rooms of Mok's.

"Not in such friendly terms. no," The Doctor remarked off hand. "If anything we're all constantly changing, constantly forming towards our ideal self...most of us anyway. The others are too old to care what other people think. Tell me what do you think of our illustrious host? You're in the music business too after all."

"Hm... Frankly, I am not entirely sure what to make of him," Tsubasa said ponderously to the Doctor's question, putting a finger to her chin.

"On one hand, I can completely understand how his plans are mutually beneficial to all of us, and yet, I admit to holding some apprehension over whether or not he can truly be trusted. Even when we both gain from our current arrangement, it still feels as though we are at his mercy, and if he deemed it convenient, he could betray us at any turn. It is like a sixth sense, yet I cannot quite assign an appropriate name to it."

"How about women's intuition," Maria half-jokingly suggested. "I can understand that feeling, though I wonder if the Doctor could relate?" She continued to tease.

"Alright, let's get moving!" Toad led his tour group out of the living area, bypassing Rin and Meiji by taking right. "Mok's got his own bedroom, a personal space for entertaining guests, an office, and his own wardrobe. I can give youse guys about...twenty minutes to fuck around, then we meet back to keep the tour going."

Margaret tagged alongside the trio discussing matters, nodding at what they were saying. "It doesn't help that Mok has the home advantage here...literally. Personally I don't trust him, but then again in my line of work, I don't trust anyone."

"Alright, here we are!" Toad stopped at the end of the hall, which broke off into four doors from left to right: red, green, blue, and black. "Wardrobe, bedroom, private room, office." Toad pointed at each door as he named it in order. "Remember. Twenty minutes."

@Jeremi @Ver @Lucky @ShipTour

Rin was almost too eager taking Meiji's hand and running left, just as the tour showed up. "It feels like we're sneaking around like spies," she excitedly whispered. "I like it!" Following the singing, the two androids would take a few turns here and there, and as they got closer they would recognize Cindy's voice, as well as the fact that whatever she was singing, she was singing it very badly. Finally a pink door with a large "KEEP OUT!!" sign came into view, and from behind it came Cindy's singing, loud and painfully clear.

@Takumi @Cinderella

"Oh...I'm real sorry." Zip gave Gris a sympathetic smile, patting her on the shoulder. "You know, maybe it's a nice thing that you ended up here. You get to see all kinds of people. Like me!"

Zip nodded at what Cooper said. "Yeah! That's like what we have, too. But the best show is Uncle Mikey. I can get it ready right now, uh..." He cocked his head. "Aw, gee...new friends, and I don't know your names!"

"All that and more? How very extravagant," Tsubasa commented as she and the others followed Toad along on his tour. "I suppose the luxuries of being a successful musician are rather consistent no matter what world you're in," she mused matter-of-factly, surprisingly without a single trace of haughtiness in her voice. True humility through and through... or obliviousness.

"And yet you can't even manage to keep a hospital room by itself clean," Maria teased, an in-joke between the two of them, one that the blue-haired woman chose to ignore.

Once Toad showed them to the four rooms, Maria turned to the rest of the group, having already made her decision. "So, I take it we're all just as interested in whatever the private room has waiting inside it?"

"I hardly think a room specified as private is available for perusing."

"That's exactly why I think it'd be good to have a look inside! Or the office if you'd really rather. What do you guys think?"

But We Were Happy
Evan Hansen

Evan really started to see the garden, but he decided to be patient for now and go along with the tour, for now. There were bound to be other things. He had no clue what a private room was, but he certainly didn't want to be exposed to stuff like that. " Mok seems like he would have a ton of cool clothes, I'm going to check out the wardrobe...." he replied, going to check there. Maybe he could find a new outfit for himself.

@Yun Lee @Ver @Jeremi @Ship Tour

Cooper Reid

Cooper found that when it comes to most worlds that have TVS, the structure of those sort of things were mostly the same. " Well, to be fair, we hadn't gotten a chance to introduce ourselves either. I'm Cooper Reid," he replied.

Meiji was glad that Rin was at least having fun in this situation. Following the voice along with her fellow Android, it seemed her guess was correct. She stared at the door before looking to Rin.

"Guess she got in trouble, eh?" She asked. Her brothers did say something about her sneaking put and weren't all that pleased, so it made sense that she'd be grounded.

"Want to see if she's excepting visitors?" She asked as she raised a fist to knock on the door.

@Yun Lee

"Mhm, I get the chance to make many new friends." Gris replied as she gave Zip a smile. Sure this adventure had a few downs but it wasn't too bad. So far. When Zip asked for names she held out her hand for a shake, a little awkwardly.

"I'm Gris."

Maria got her answer by the Doctor walking past them all and heading to the office. "Of course we have to investigate the man's inner sanctum! Imagine all the amazing work he might have done in this room! Or something..."
