Fred's Item Post

So, I've mentioned this to a few people on twitter (which seems to be the way I do all of my evil plotting nowadays), but for those of you not in the know, Fred's going to be getting her item next week, on May 20th. This is also council speech day.

She has all ten signatures required to run for council, and though she's going to be understandably nervous about giving a speech (the last time she had to give any kind of speech, she was nearly pulled through a portal to another dimension by some kind of tentacle demon thing), she'll be able to pull herself together to at least give it a go. Unfortunately for her, before she can get more than a few sentences into her speech, her item will appear while she's standing in front of everyone. She'll suddenly be back in the head-exploding (technically imploding, but who's counting) collar that she spent five years in while she was in Pylea.

What this means (besides that I'm a horrible person):
*I'll be posting a separate EP on her journal (sometime in the next few days, since I'm actually going to be out of town on speech day) for anyone who would want to help her out, and then linking to it in a comment in the speech post. It'll be just like a normal EP (so I can accommodate anyone who wants to get involved), but if people want to double up and do three way threads, that's fine too.

*Because of the ruckus this will cause, she'll be going second to last in the speech order, with only Peter Parker going after. This way, it won't disturb anyone else's speeches.

*The collar cannot be removed without disabling it first.

*Fred is going to basically freak the fuck out, in public and in front of everyone. She knows how to disable the collar, but someone's going to need to calm her down first before she'll be coherent enough to convey just how to do it.

*I'll also likely put up a private post on her journal a few days after (likely on Monday the 23rd, when I'm back in town) for anyone who wants to talk to her after the fact. The whole ordeal is going to set her back a bit (she won't quite be season 3 crazypants Fred, but she definitely won't be her normal self), and you can assume that she won't leave her room much from the 20th - 23rd.


Volunteers? Questions? Concerns? Comments?

1) Pete'll definitely be up there to help her (and I will definitely be rewatching the Pylea arc, and not want to app anyone from Angel, la la la).

2) As you will be out of town, will you be around to link the EP on the 20th/have someone do it for you? I ask only since I'll want to post Pete's speech directly after her comment, so if we could coordinate the timing on that, that'd be awesome.

1) Awesomesauce. I'll anticipate his tag. :D

2) I may actually need someone to post it for me, as I actually don't know when the speech post will be going up. If I knew it'd be going up late night on the 19th, I could likely do it, but I'm not sure exactly where I'll be and if I'll even be able to post from my phone when it comes up.

If you need someone to post it for you, I could always do it (provided you set up a temporary password for Fred's journal just for that purpose)? It might be the simplest way, since obviously then I'd know exactly when to post Pete. XD

That'd be awesome, if you could do that. I can change her password next Wednesday before I go on hiatus and leave the comment text in a private post on her journal if that works?
daretodo: ([asm] Exciting!)

Yikes! Polly's hopefully going to be on stage as well, so she'll be available to help.

Dean is ready, willing and able to help during the freakout D:

God help her but Jason will be there to help.

Trixa will see that there are ample people handling the situation and not get involved, but she'll totally want to check on Fred after.

Spike will be immediately bullying his way up on stage, probably shoving people out of the way to get to her, just sayin'. Don't tell, but the whole reason he'll be at the speeches will be to hear hers.

Aaaand, like I mentioned to you earlier, Walter would like to poke at the collar, once it's off. If you don't mind, I'd love to make a post for it, around the 21st or so. Then he'll, of course, he tagging into her private post after the 23rd. If you DON'T put that post up, I'll probably bug you for a Two Crazypants Geniuses private thread.

Yeah, Walter can definitely have it. Fred likely won't want anything to do with it for a long time. So post away!

And odds are, I WILL put up a post for her on the 23rd, if only because Scott has said that William de Worde will want to get all ~interview-y about the incident. xD

Late la la la because I just got home but Xander will no doubt be at the speeches with Helen so he will definitely be around to help calm her down if need be. Or really anything you want the Scooby for.
