Previous Year's Thread:

What Goes Here:

- Updates depicting the characters you chose to participate in the Secret Santa shopping/crafting/searching for a gift for their assigned character. The understanding of the significance of the holiday is secondary at best; if your character's just in it for loot that's fine.

- Updates depicting the characters you chose reacting to the gifts they have received. This update obviously can't appear until after someone has posted their shopping/crafting/searching update. If you'd like to make more elaborate, including dimensional rifts, or face-to-face presentation, that's fine.

- Updates depicting characters shopping for people other than their assigned characters are ALSO FINE as long as YOU and the AUTHOR of the character have AGREED on things. Extra updates are extra work, after all.

- Reactions to the updates are fine within reason. Don't start arguments here.

Gina "Hey, Logan, think you can help me with my Secret Santa thing?"

Logan (Signing words) "Sure. What do you need?"

Gina "The only thing my card says is "[default]: Nanomachines". So I was hoping you could make some of those smallbots for me."

Logan "If you're looking for something like that, I already have some you could gift."

Gina "What? Since when?"

Logan "Remember last spring, when Mr. Cortez and I went out of town for the weekend? I cashed in some favors, and asked for the tech I needed to make nanomachines of my own."

Gina "Nice. What do they do?"

Logan "Not too much. If you pour them into an enclosed space, they'll move all the dirt and dust into a small pile. I've been using them to clean my room. A gallon of the things leaves this place nice and tidy in just an hour."

Gina "Perfect! Can I get, like, a quart of those for my giftee?"

Logan "No problem! However..."

Logan "The materials needed to make a gallon of these things costed twelve favors. I'll trade you a quart of these nanomachines for three favors from Mr. Cortez."

Gina "Ugh... I just cashed in all of mine recently for that electric keyboard."

Logan "You can pay me back later. I'll knock it down to two favors, if you can convince Mrs. Cortez to whip up some sugar cookies. later. Deal?"

Logan fills a large test tube with what looks like a green fluid. He corks it, and holds it out towards me.

Gina "You've got a deal."

We exchange a handshake, as I take the container from his hand.

Logan "P-Pleasure doing b-b-business with you."

I'll mail this tube after dinner. First, I should talk to mom about those sugar cookies...

[default]: "OK I thiIink I have settled on a pREsent."

Shopkeep: "Is it nanomachines?"

[default]: "You didn't ev-v-ven ask who I got for the Secret SAaanta!"

Shopkeep: "It's nanomachines isn't it?"

[default]: "MaaAAaaaybe. I got Anita, you see."

Shopkeep: "Isn't she some sort of pervert witch?"

[default]: "Nonono, you see she is a w-WItch with magic underpants. Magic underpants which are regularly ssStolen by others for nefarious purposes. And because she doesn't HAve any spare ones, she is forced to run ARound experiencing a draft - in a short skirt - until she can mug someone a-aand steal their magic underPAnts. Which come in a variety of STYles and powers. It i-is the product of necessity, not perversion!"

Shopkeep: "So wait does she give the other ones back after she rescues her pants?"

[default]: "I'm not suRe. AnnnnywAy, I made her panties. Out of nanomachines! They're self cleaning, automatically adjust for best fit, you can push alerts to tHEm from your phone and they have a security feature where if stolen they go into auto-attack moOode and convert the thief into their weight in panties."

Shopkeep: "Harsh. Maybe too harsh."

[default]: "What if I put in an OPTion where it j-Just eats their clothes?"

Shopkeep: "Perfect!"


To: Anita

Enjoy your present. It's the way of the future!

Please ensure you read the manual before use.

From: [Your Secret Santa]

PS: I have a question. What do you do with the panties you acquire on your quest to recover your own ones?

It was a starry, planety night above Thepiotephi’s moon.
A great event in Port Echo was about to happen soon!
So great, in fact, which happens to define—
—three other off-worldly holidays which they’ll also align!

“Isn’t this exciting, guys?” says Cybil to her friends,
“It’ll be another 14 billion years before this happens again!”
“The Arthocobs have Bhothogoshol’s Day, the Chupas: the Great Irrigation.”
“And it’ll be the 23rd anniversary of the Gortians complete isolation…!”

“from the rest of the galaxy…”
“…still dealing with civil war issues…”

“But to keep our minds occupied with joy and… Fanta.”
“I’ve entered you all in another round of Secret Santa!”
Eudora huffed, groaned, grumbled, and kind of a heave.
“But last year I was given some off-putting bird figurine.”

“Well I can’t go back to my planet,” Cybil said aloud to anyone.
“But improvising a souvenir is what makes it really fun!”
“My giftee is Essence. As for a gift to deposit—”
“I’m sure I can spice up one of my failed inventions from the closet.”

And so the Gortian rummages through drones, whizzaps, discs, and suspenders,
prismns, gridgets, spokets, bolts, scrups and hoo-henders.
“Ah! I’ve found just the thing!” she says happy and gay,
An electric calendar of every conceivable galactic holiday!

“With a calendar like this, there’s a reason to party all year!”
Said Cybil as she wrapped her gift in the merriest of holiday cheer.
“The machine will start scanning once you punch in a date,”
“And out comes a special holiday worth wanting to celebrate!”

“Vikta, you’re home!” his siblings cry in conglomeration.
His mother follows, “And just in time for the Great Irrigation!”
“Your father awaits you in his private bath.”
“So make yourself at home! Strip down and follow the path!”

The spas and pools were packed with aliens all around.
Where Vzierians, Corbons, Relicynths, and Atchings can be found.
Victor was always a bit anxious to speak with his father.
Hoping his request for a perfect gift wouldn’t be a bother.

“Dad?” chimed Victor, slowly entering a room of steam.
“Ah, Vikta. I expected you.” speaks Dama, stoic he may seem.
And Victor says, “I’m wondering what would be a good gift to buy.”
“The giftee’s a skut named Melora; a dog-ish creature with six eyes!”

“Hmm, yes, that’s quite a conundrum. But don’t put your mind in a twirl,”
“If it makes new customers you’ll win a discount here for your referral.”
“Take my Patented Portable Sauna™; it can fill any room in a hot minute.”
“I promise her guaranteed relaxation when she basks in it.”
No. 119046 ID: ecae1b
File 151396351335.png - (329.28KB , 700x450 , VIC03.png )

“Wow, thanks!” appreciated Victor, “I don’t know what to say!”
“Your father has you covered, Vikta,” says Dama, “Now you’d best be on your way.”
“We wish you a merry time with your superhero friends.”
“The Great Irrigation is upon us; so be sure to thoroughly cleanse.”

And so the Chupa leaves with his gift, “Sorry guys, I’ve gotta run!”
“But I promise to be back in time to join in on the fun!”
“Goodbye mother Yamelle, bye Sashi, Deemus, Charu, and Numax!”
And the hairless mutt hopped on the shuttle, forgetting to wear his slacks.

“Eudora, you’re home!” the acolyte welcomes, “Oh, how pleasant!”
“Only briefly, Ganymede,” says the Scarab, “I’m here for another present.”
“It’s for someone named Sarah Hanchett, a weird, featureless thing on skinny legs.”
“And this time I brought no amber to make Ichothortu Eggs.”

Ganymede nods, “Why not an Iquaug Husk that infests the church’s garden?”
“Once an Iquaug hatches and leaves, the shell begins to harden.”
“They can be used as trophies, headdresses, armor, or a doorstop.”
“Ah yes, a gift like this you won’t find in a Bhothogoshol shop!”

“Those damn things suck the life out of our sacred trees and blooms!”
“Because they’re holy and endangered, we can’t remove them in their cocoons.”
“Even more annoying they take roughly 10 years to mature.”
“But there’s bound to be an empty husk up there, to be sure!”

How far she would climb for one, Eudora couldn’t tell.
Yet with haste she reached the top to find an unoccupied shell.
Iquaug casts were admired for their hypnotizing emerald sheen.
Such a rare jewel would make any Arthocob feel like a queen!

“Well that was easier than I thought,” she said with the acolyte in tow.
After a brief silence, she cuts off, “Welp, looks like I’m good to go.”
“S-so just like that?” he moped, “Y-you’re not going to stay?”
“I was hoping—you know, we could c-catch up on things… perhaps see a movie, or pray.”

“I mean, Bhothogoshol’s Day is soon, and we could watch the parades!”
“M-maybe decorate that husk together, or play a nice game of charades…”
“Or watch the boxing match of Isthot versus Golathathoth?!”
“If not, maybe visit the zoo to see the Ralligoraugh Moth?”
“Shacha-oteg zhogh hab-zoraat both ashatho thosc kek!”

Gina "Check it out! My entire outfit is fireproof. The shirt, pants, jacket, shoes, and now the mittens. I can light myself up with zero consequences!" To demonstrate my point, I ignite my entire body. There's an initial feeling of body heat being sucked away, before the warm flames envelop me. Ann and Logan crowd in closer for warmth. After about ten seconds of enjoying the heat, I extinguish myself.

Ann "They look really nice! I love that red too. It really goes well with your hair."

Gina "Why, thank you."

Ann "I guess this puts a definitive end to the mitten bets though. That's a shame. It was starting to become a tradition."

Gina "Oh boo-fucking-hoo! I go through crates of mittens every year, and you two jerks make a game of guessing how many I'll smoke. The mitten bets ending is the best fucking part of this gift!"

Logan, the traitor, lets out a comically large sigh. Ann offers a half-hearted shrug. Sometimes I really hate these people I greatly cherish.

Ann "Well, I guess you win this year, Logan. I'll get change at the concessions stand, and pay you before the movie starts."

Logan "We d-d-doubled it to f-forty this year."

Ann "Yeah, yeah... Thanks for the reminder." Ann grumbles that last line.

Gina "Come on guys, step up your pace! We're getting front row seats for this flick."

Ann "What? No way! The front seats are awful. We should sit in the back."

Gina "Nope! If I'm letting you and Logan drag me to anime trash, then I'm at least picking our seats."

Ann "You wanted to see this movie too! Don't act like your taste is any better!"

Omniclaus: I have traveled across multiple worlds, beyond time and space, and I have brought you a gift of Christmas Cheer.

Rendamel: What is it?

Omniclaus: It is a GUIDING SPIRIT COMPASS from the DEPARTMENT OF CHANGE, JUDGEMENT DIVISION. I have taken the liberty of binding it with a GPS. The COMPASS will show you the way to find what you seek! The GPS will show you where you currently are! I feel this should help you actually arrive at Beach Day on time next year.

Rendamel: It says I'm currently in Spike & Kitty's back yard.

Omniclaus: Look, if you're hard up for holiday cheer, I'm pretty sure if you know on the back door, Spike and Kitty will invite you in, especially since they seem to have a soft spot for you. The disadvantage being their interpretation of "Holiday Cheer". It probably involves eggnog spiked with random potions. Look, if you want I'll also give you a lift if you'd rather be somewhere else. You honestly could do better.

The time has come for the celebration of a winter solstice. Such celebrations are typified by singing carols, the consumption of copious amounts of food and the exchange of gifts.

Information Management Organism Unit-02 has been entered into a lottery system known as 'Secret Santa' whereby all entrants purchase one gift for a randomised entrant and receive one gift in turn. This is a method that imposes time and resource constraints on what would otherwise be unregulated gifting, preventing a possible consumerist singularity. IMO Unit-02 approves.

Borgas IV is the fourth planet in the Borgas system. It is a planet with high coverage by liquid water possessing a double moon system. The biosphere is characterised by extensive possession of poisonous or venomous traits and the existence of several types. Anomalous technological artefacts apparently left behind by an advanced civilisation are also found there.

This is where her giftee lives.

Gengkwaku is a juvenile Puruu, a diminutive species that lives in primitive tribes in the jungles of Borgas IV. Named for Kwaku, first warchief of the Yapa, unifier of the jungle tribes. His tribe has been wiped out. He and his sibling are in the care of a single adult of his tribe, one who is only present due to having been stabbed in the face and losing consciousness during the attack.

You do not need to be a biological super computer to recognise the best gift to comfort a child in this position.

A gun.

This type of outside-context device gives the best opportunity for survival and success in life.

The modifications to allow a small species to easily operate the weapon were simple engineering problems. An experimental unlimited charge beam functionality is included: beam can be continuously charged before firing to increase shot power. Primitive adaptation includes a micro-fusion reactor that will produce power for one thousand years or until containment breach, whichever comes first.

Tracking target. Message capsule launched.


To: Puruu child Gengkwaku

This gift is a weapon. Point away from self.

From: Your Secret Santa

Gengkwaku: What's that thing?

Tamri: I dunno. But it makes silly pictures!

Gengkwaku: Really? Can I see?

Tamri: Yeah.

Gengkwaku crouches down next to his brother.

Gengkwaku: Whoa, cool. What is this red blinky thing in the corner?

Tamri: I dunno. It just started doing that.
