Ulti's loft is undergoing one of the Sanctuary's periodic rearrangements, so he's brought his books to the Labs to study.  This... may not have been the best of ideas, as the Labs are flooded, an inch or so of water over the black tiles.

"... Norman?"

Norman squelches in, looking... not entirely pleased. Or entirely human, for that matter. "Mmmyes?"

"Ah, hello. New look. Does that have anything to do with the water?" Squelchy socks, yay.

"Nadezhda turned me into a squid, to help win the scavenger hunt yesterday. It's only been wearing off in bits. This started about that time, so..." Shrug. He's dripping seawater a bit, too. "I've been putting drains in as fast as I can, but even that isn't doing much good."

He glances towards the library, concerned. "Is there anything I can do?"

Norman follows his look, understanding immediately Ulti's concern. "When things stopped working so much, I just sealed the Labs off from everything else. It doesn't seem to have gone through to the study, though I can't really open the door. Or... touch the books, myself. I can't seem to dry off." This is a look of... mild annoyance? At least he's not got fingers to prune up.

"Even if you leave?" Yes, he knows Norman is the Labs, but the avatar bears so little resemblance to a building.

"Even if. I had to sit in a kiddie pool this evening, to keep from making a mess in the Sanctuary." He.. makes as much of a face as he can. "It's all salt water, too."

"Unpleasant." Eying! "I would talk to Nadezhda about it." He has never met Dez! He should. Just to give Snape fits.

"Mmm. She's busy with a pirate infestation right now, actually. But I will, tomorrowish." His head-tentacles wiggle very slightly, patterned red-and-brown and arranged in very neat, familiar rows.

"I wanted to be a pirate, when I was a boy...." He's actually going to try not to snicker at the corn-row'd tentacles. Or reach out and touch one... Too late.

It twitches, wriggling out of place to curl around his fingers as Norman laughs. There are tiny little harmless barbs on the undersides, soft enough to tickle. "Now's your chance, then, it seems."
Norman Osbornroadmostbloody on July 22nd, 2006 07:15 am (UTC)
"Mmm, I prefer more modern forms of piracy, these days. Lost my taste for yachting, really." Aw, tentacles don't SPROING like the curls do.

"If this keeps on for too much longer, you may want to take it up again." No, but they don't let go of your fingers, either. Tug-o-war time! :3

Tug tug! My hand! "To rescue my books if nothing else."
Norman Osborn II: Howlosborn_journals on July 22nd, 2006 07:33 am (UTC)
Not anymore! >:D Especially when other join the one, to tug back. "Mmmyes. I'm trying to do what I can here, but I obviously don't have that much flexibility anywhere else."
Norman Osborn: headache with a disturbing smileroadmostbloody on July 22nd, 2006 07:36 am (UTC)
"Understandable. Are you doing that on purpose, or do the... ah, tentacles move independantly?"
Norman Osborn II: Half-squidosborn_journals on July 22nd, 2006 07:38 am (UTC)
Grin. "If I were controlling it, would I tell you?" Tugtug, tickle!
Norman Osborn: Smirkroadmostbloody on July 22nd, 2006 07:57 am (UTC)
"Which I assume means yes." Smirk. Hey, no tickling! He tries to peel the tentacles off his arm, one by one.
Norman Osborn II: CreepyRedosborn_journals on July 22nd, 2006 03:14 pm (UTC)
"Heh," is the only answer he gives, as the tentacles -- well, Ulti manages to peel them off, but others are moe than happy to take their place. He's been watching Inky, you see.
Norman Osborn: Smirkroadmostbloody on July 23rd, 2006 07:31 am (UTC)
Inky is a bad role model. Really. Just ask Davy Jones. But Norman the Younger is more amused than annoyed, clearly. "Mm, do you mind?"
