Most of the major characters are based off of members of GS's yurii fan club.
"Whatcha doing?" Kitty asked.
"You startled me," Debora said. "You shouldn't sneak up on someone like that."
"Sorry," Kitty said. "So, what are you doing?"
"Nothing," Debora said. She hurriedly put a slip of paper into her pocket.
"That looks like a love fortune from that machine in the lobby," Kitty said. "Could it be that you like someone?"
"Don't be absurd," Debora said. "Those machines are just a joke. Fortune telling is rubbish."
"Then, why are you hiding it?" Kitty asked.
"I'm not hiding anything!" Debora said.
Kitty turned and waved. "Hey, Mischa!"
Mischa waved and walked over. "Kitty, Debora, what are you doing hanging out in the student union?"
"We were talking about the machine in the lobby," Kitty said.
"The DVD renting one, the soda one or that one that gives you a love fortune?" Mischa asked.
"The love fortune one," Kitty said. "Debora just got a slip from it."
"Oh," Mischa said. "What does it say?"
"It says to follow my heart and good things will come to me," Debora said.
"It's better than the last time I got one," Mischa said. "It said that my future in love would be as rich and full as my head of hair."
"I remember that!" Kitty said. "Great future there." She reached up and rubbed Mischa's shaved head.
"Why did you get a love fortune?" Debora asked.
"They'd just installed the machine and we thought it would be good for a laugh," Mischa said. "Kody, Kitty, Leonard, Amanda and I all got one."
"Mine said that if I was patient my prince would come," Kitty said. "I suppose that make Melanie a prince."
"You couldn't beat Leonard's though," Mischa said. "His said that a wonderful man was on the horizon if he was willing to fight for him."
"The look on his face was pretty priceless," Kitty said. "He crossed his arms and said 'challenge declined'"
"Good times," Mischa said. "Well, I've got to head out. I'm meeting with Heidi for supper. See you."
"Have a good time!" Kitty called. She turned to Debora. "Are you going to confess to him?"
"What are you talking about?" Debora asked. "We're friendly rivals, we aren't beloved rivals."
"If you say so," Kitty said. "But if you don't tell him he's not going to notice."
"Puyo Puyo," Leonard muttered. "Why did it have to be Puyo Puyo?"
"It's okay," Amanda said. "You can still bring your ranking up. They're going to continue tomorrow, right?"
"What's up?" Kody asked. "You look really down."
"He hasn't been doing well in the puzzle segment," Amanda said. It's brought him down to fifth in the overall competition."
"He can still make up for it in the other genre competitions, right?" Kody asked.
"Of course," Amanda said. "He can even turn this around in the second part of the competition."
"I can't get back to first," Leonard said.
"Maybe not," Amanda admitted. "But you can get to second and take back the first spot in the next round."
"Is someone doing that well?" Kody asked.
"Yeah," Amanda said. "This girl with a newsboy hat. She moved to a close second after the last round and she's gone up to first after being undefeated in the first part of this one."
"Yeah," Kody said. "After all, this is your weak round. After this you're golden."
Looks like Leonard has lost the lead in the puzzle game round as feared. Will he be able to pull himself together in the second half? Will the newsy hat girl win? Is Kitty right about Debora? Why do fortune telling machines even exist? These questions and more may be answered next week in Soniczero's blog.

A couple weeks back Mischa and Debora were seen playing a game with notecards. Well, this week I'll tell you how it works. You start by getting a bunch of notecards. On one side write out characters, genres and locations. You can substitute images or put them in in addition to the writing if you're artistically inclined.
To play the game you simply shuffle your notecards and scatter them around face down. Now, there are two ways to play. The first is to do what Debora and Mischa did and have everyone roll a d10, taking cards to match your roll. Now, everyone gets fifteen minutes to write a story using all of the elements in the cards they drew. If you got any character cards you have to make one of them your main character. After fifteen minutes you get together and take it in turns to tell the stories you came up with.
The second way to play is a more collaborative way. With this method you roll a die only to decide on order, the highest roll goes first. The game starts with the first player drawing one card and telling the beginning of a story. Then the second player draws a card and adds to it and it keeps going like that. Personally, I prefer the first method but either one can be uproariously funny. There aren't any points, the game is purely for fun.
