I suppose that’s fair. Originally, the thinking he was going to live at a zoo thing was meant to be a joke, so I’ll make why he thought that a joke as well, his owner’s name is now Sue keeper. :lol: If her job becomes important in the future I’ll specify it in the RP. Might figure out a way to work my way in without anyone telling me, but I suppose I need to know which houses it be okay for those two to live in as I think I saw that was an important detail. As for the endurance thing, I envisioned Rudder being a person who can dish stuff out but can’t take it, the wound is pretty convenient as it can be put up to debate if he was always like that or not.

XD Sue Keeper? Why not? I like it!

You know, I have an idea actually.
You need a special permit to have a pet otter in the US, apparently, because they're mostly illegal.
What if Sue is a wildlife carer who's come to work at the vet clinic to replace the NPC who went away to college? That would give her reason to have a permit to have Rudder (awesome name, by the way!), and a reason to come to RA. The vet clinic there is a dedicated wildlife hospital as well as a regular vet for the town, after all.

As to houses, if you look at the list of players in the first post in this thread, their houses are listed next to the characters. So have a look at that and have a look at the map underneath and pick one you like the looks of. If it's taken we'll soon let you know. ^^

Other than that there's just one thing to say: feel free to hop in!

Welcome to RA and to the forums!

I figured that, while Flash isn't a fan of any active predator, he has a particular dislike of cats, who he considers borderline sociopathic. He has a bunch of reasons, and counters to any argument against his dislike. The reason he considers domestic cats the worst of all predators is that they have no excuse. They get food from their humans, so if they're hunting, they're doing it for fun and sport. They don't need to hunt like, say, that wild fox he was chased by the other day.

As such he isn't likely to get along with Nola, though he might find he can't bring himself to hate Leslie.

Also worth noting that his hate of cats as a whole is more a hatred of individual cats who actively hunt. If a cat can honestly say they don't hunt and don't have an interest in it, he will not hate them.

Figured a pic of what Rudder looks like is necessary. He has a scar in the RP not present in his refs, so that sadly you’ll just have to imagine for yourself how it looks.

Oh how I wish that was the case. Drawn by a mild buddy of mine by the name of Blaussi. I do enjoy supporting artists so this is just the pic I felt most comfortable sharing after the ref, which was too big in size for me to submit (nothing NSFW if you go to my FA, I just don’t think my interests are for everyone)

I’d definitely be happy knowing I got him some business/attention. I also have a rockruff character he did for free just because he liked the design of them, so also look for that

Flash and Deus's cave was inspired by Mammoth caves. The massive cave system irl has a ton of entrances apparently, and I think not all of the caves connected to the system have been discovered. This is partly because there are parts of the cave that are blocked off or have entrances that are too small for humans to explore. The caves were carved I believe by an underground river that I think still flows somewhere inside it. I imagine that Flash and Deus's cave is connected to the Mammoth cave system, but they haven't explored past a certain point because it is too dangerous.

It works actually. Well before you joined the RP Flynn found smugglers tunnels under his house that lead to a cave system with an underground river in it. You're probably just in another entrance. ^^

Nola sorta cares about Juniper due to their recent history. But she knows Juniper being hurt will mean Sally gets hurt and THAT she does care about.

Hey Hilaroo, is cinnamon an actual character, the fact he isn’t in your list tells me he’s likely a new one if so. Doubt that thing you mentioned is relevant since you mentioned he wasn’t in the town, but wanted to know

He's Argent's character. He's a little bit retired but still mentioned as we think he's great and would love him back.

Sorry about posting twice in a row, this is to ask about something on Grim’s latest reply, I don’t think this is response I could just make, but I was thinking it might not be unusual for vets to use vet pets to help demonstrate how they’d like other pets to act if they are starting to get difficult. Kinda want a transition to get Rudder ready for shots either way

I was going to say I wouldn't mind using Sunny as a "prime example" of a good pet if that is what you are wanting to do and it would take his mind off Luna temporarily.

I don't think they would. It would have to be a pet that was employed at the clinic. Too many confidentiality issues otherwise.

... I know it’s not in his character sheet, but that suggestion just seems too amazing for me not to even consider. You think it would be common practice for Vet’s to have their pets get trained as therapy animals? It’s the only way I can imagine it making sense, even if it’s a stretch. Definitely can’t have him be the one holding the needles or anything.

So long as Grim is fine with it then, I’ll add that detail to his character sheet. Still would probably need some help with setup though, don’t figure he’d interrupt a checkup as that might agitate a pet which he’s trained not to do

I kinda stopped checking this because I didnt seem to have a role to play and tests started sprouting up. currently struggling in my bacteriology class and pharmacology so i got even more distracted. not to mention no matter how many times I tell gmail to not trash email notifications from here it still does it.

He took up his fork and specifically grabbed any strawberries that was in the bowl first as they were his favorite. He tilted his head and ears as he heard Flash mention being faster than cars. "You can run faster than a car? I want to see! I didn't know mice were that fast!" He didn't really hear mention of stop signs and all that because his focus was more on the lollipops at the time.
This is the last post i see from you and from what I can tell I don't think Flash answered...I dunno this would probably be up to Roo.However if you were to go towards the vet, my characters are still active there and are finishing up.

Flynn texted Nadia earlier in the morning, but Josh answered and is being a little bit cryptic as to what happened to her. Josh and Flynn agreed to meet at Nadia's house an hour from their last text, and so Kilo is asking if Koa would like to tag along

What Serence said.
Here's where Kilo invited Koa.
Best of luck with your classes! I'm sure you'll get through them! Do feel free to poke me if you need help with them at all. I'm no expert but I did complete 3 years of vet school so I might be able to at least point you in the right direction.
