Under My Skin Interlude : Return Of The Elevator by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin Interlude : Return Of The Elevator by LJ-Phillips
This is a thank-you piece for all of you who've taken the time so far to read and support "Under My Skin" so far-
This is just an arb interlude that doesn't fit into the current continuity and we will return to the costume party this weekend :)
At the Coven, sometimes one sees terrible things. Vinnie handles it with getting into fights and drinking, Jordan bottles it up and Rabbit... well, he's developed a kind of gallows humor.

There is a special place in Hell, in every single belief system, for people who make terrible puns.  Rabbit is going there.

Rabbit: I mean, his catalogue was pretty creative, even if kind of disgusting.

Vinnie: *Ignore him, ignore him, ignore him*

Rabbit: The combinations of genres was innovative, if illegal.

Vinnie: *Don't encourage the little pervert*

Rabbit: Do you think there was much of a market for that one that combined bestiality, S&M, and necrophilia?

Vinnie (humming and studying the ceiling)

Rabbit: Or with that one, was he flogging a dead horse?

Vinnie: AAAAAAAAARGH!

*Elevator door opens*

Gracie: Mommy, why is Daddy strangling Rabbit with a towel?

Jordan: Le sigh.

I meant to reply to this much sooner but life got in the way. I really enjoy these pieces of dialogue :D

Rabbit: Or with that one, was he flogging a dead horse?

I love that. You nail Rabbit's pun addiction perfectly (as well as the character interaction.)

When I get my internet data for Feb, I'd like to include this and your other recent dialogue in the group if possible :D

:icontrollingplz: Rabbit your face is just...EPIC!!! :lmao:


*********************************

Rabbit: There's a store on 8th Avenue that specializes in—how to put this delicately—battery... powered... adult... recreational... fake penises.


Keller: Please, tell me you didn't let them make a mold of yours.


Rabbit: Where did you think I got the money for that diamond Collar for Tyr?


Keller: GAH!!

Rabbit always laughs at his own (bad) puns. It drives Vinnie crazy!

Well, that's one way to make extra cash :rofl: I'm sure Tyr was delighted if Rabbit gave him a gift. Not sure how delighted he'd be if he found out how Rabbit paid for it ;)

Speaking of that....:giggle:

************************

(Mira buys a cake to celebrate TYr and Vinnie coming back alive from a mission)

Gray: Mira, that cake is from the "Get it While it's Hot" erotic bake shop!

Jordan: [looking at cake Mira bought] WHOA OH!

(Jordan is seated on couch, and looks stunned, as do Vanessa and Keller, standing behind her and looking over her shoulder)

Gray: (looks into box) Why, Mira!! :eyes: Why that cake is in the shape of a...

Jordan: WE KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, GRAY!!

Mira(innocent)  I thought it was in the shape of Florida!

Vanessa: (rubs her neck sensually, as she looks at the cake) That reminds me... I gotta give Caliban a call.

(Keller's, Jordan's and Mira's eyes and heads snap toward  V, to gawk at her in shock, meanwhile Gray is grinning like a lunatic at Vanessa)

Gray: Dearest, Excellency, if this cake reminds you of Skins Officer Caliban, we can BOTH give him a call!

Yep, it's a terrible pun (Rabbit loves puns) but it's still kinda funny. And I think what makes it work is the fact that he's laughing at his own joke :D

I'd say he needs a hug but I like breathing. I think I'll just give him a sock with a bar of soap so he can use it on Rabbit.

If you put a bar of soap in a sock and hit someone with it, it hurts like hell. Doesn't leave a mark, either.

I [mostly] hate puns. They should burn in a hole in Antarctica. But Rabbit's expression.. Personally, I could forgive him. But poor Vinnie! He looks like he just wants to bang his head against the wall. D:

My family is dreadful about puns and wordplay so I know how Vinnie feels! I love your imagery - I now picture a secret government agency devoted to rounded up puns and quietly deposing of them in Antarctica :)

This piece was so much fun to do because of their expressions. Poor Vinnie, he's been putting up with this for more than 15 years - no wonder he has gray hair :lol:
