[ bold to assume that i won’t have the last laugh ]
Horror!Drooper, I understand the need for a new costume redesign, but... ...WHY THE EYES? WHY BIG OPEN (scary) EYES? Your old closed ones we’re aesthetically cool!
“Gee…I dunno. I was just built this way, that’s all.”
Horror!Drooper, I miss your old costume design. Wide open eyes really don’t suit you. Unlike Fleegle’s eyes, no offense, yours just look straight-up dead.
“Oh no! Do my eyes really look that bad?” He places his hands over his eyes (from outside his shades) and shakes his head as if embarrassed. “Well, the studio thought that the ol’ costume that was used years ago was starting to look outdated so I think my current one is suppose to be an improvement…”
“I actually can’t bark, believe it or not. At least not since I was a little pup. I can, however, make other dog noises like growling and whining. Just not on command, though.”
Horror!Bingo, who the hell designed your skin costume, cuz you don’t even look like a gorilla!
“Karl did, of course! I think it’s suppose to be based off my costume from a loooonng time ago back when our show was new.” The animatronic then pauses and he puts a hand to his cheek. “Do I really not look a gorilla, ya say? I mean, I am suppose to be an ape of sorts, though I’ve had some fans tell me a look kinda like a bear!”
*Points laser at the floor while Drooper is in the room*
Drooper looks up from strumming his bass guitar once he noticed the little laser dot on the floor from the corner of his eye. He just watches it as it moved around.
“Huh, did ya manage to take one of Bingo’s laser pointers? Ya know, I haven’t been attached to them since I was a cub. Grew out of ‘em a long time ago.”
Hey Bingo, you and Snorky had to be really close if you’re able to understand him! (And I don’t mean romantically). How did you begin to understand his honking?
“Yep! Really close for a really long time! I remember thinking how hard it must’ve been for Snork to communicate with other people since he can’t speak words and everyone he has talked to can’t understand his him. I wanted to be able to do that for him, understand. Not just in terms of his honking, but also understand him as someone who struggles to speak more than one language because well…he can’t.
I dunno. I think I just started to pick up on it the same way I picked up Spanish from my pops at home. I was always around Snorky when I could since he didn’t have any other friends, so I guess being exposed to his honking a whole lot and really trying to put together what he says helped.”
Snorky, why don’t you have tusks?
(”I’m not sure, to be honest. Probably could be because I’m not old enough. The real question is how old is old enough for me to get them.”)
Besides the Sour Grapes, do you guys have any rival bands?
“Hmm, not that we’re aware of. Remember, we didn’t last very long in the music and TV businesses during our time. We were just making our big break and we tried getting along with everyone else, but we didn’t have issues with any of the other groups besides the Sour Grapes.”
*Pokes Bingo in the gut cuz I heard it was his weak spot*
Hands were now placed on the gorilltan’s belly at the spot where he was just poked, a light giggle coming out of him.
“Heehee, hey now! That feels kinda funny!”
Hi DROOPER! Tell me! How was your sleepover with Tux? OwO
He couldn’t help but blush at the sudden question being asked. Oh, boy. He’s really got to repeat what the told the other guys, huh? Well, it’s not like he’s going to deny such a special night; at least won’t out loud to certain details.
“Ehehe, oh, it was a very wonderful time! Yeah, he made me a huge buffet of all my favorite foods for dinner and we talked a bit more about each other’s…past, I guess you can say. Oh! And we cuddled a lot. A whole lot. H-He’s got really soft and fluffy fur. I’m just…really happy about it all. Sure was a nice way to spend a belated birthday, hehehe…!”
What do you have planned for Fleegle’s birthday, Splits?
“Well, we don’t exactly got a solid plan for that yet, but hey! Two months is plenty enough time to figure it out!”
I'm on me idol's buggy! Broom broom!
“Hey, hey! Get outta there, please. I still have to clean and vacuum the seats!” Pause.
“Wait a minute. Who are you and how’d you even get in the garage?”
Hey, Snorky? I've seen you find before in Hocus Pocus Park. Can you still fly even not being animated?
(”You think I would still be able to, but nah. For some reason, it only happened while we were in The Forbidden Forest. I dunno even how Fleegle knew that I could to this day…”)
“You know…I have no idea. I was just taking a super wild and creative guess during a dire time. I mean, I know I’m the smartest, but I didn’t know that also meant being psychic. Who would’ve thought?”
Dear drooper fleegle will kiss you in five seconds signed crazy shipper
“Dear Crazy Shipper,
Well, I mean…it has been past a good 30 seconds now and nothing. Besides, Fleegle isn’t even nearby. What gave you that idea, anyhow?”
Hey Fleegle, you almost share a birthday with my niece! Her’s in on August 3rd. She’s gonna be 5 this year!
“Oh, isn’t that an almost coincidental? Looks like your niece and I could’ve been birthday twins then. How exciting!”
[[Anyone up for bombarding the inbox with asks for the Splits and Horror!Splits? Would love to get back to writing them more!]]
Fleeg, How’s Banana Vac and the Cuckoo bird doing these days?
“Oh, they’ve been doing just fine! Good ol’ Banana Vac is still his outspoken self and Cuckoo is just as mischievous and sassy as ever. Overall, they’re still going just as strong as us Splits are, hoohoohoo!”
May I ask when Bingos and Fleegles birthday is? (I’m gonna try and keep track of split birthdays)
[[I did answer an ask about this before, but I made a change so here: for this blog, Fleegle’s birthday is next on August 4th and Bingo’s birthday is on October 10th.]]
Heya, Droop! Happy Birthday! Sorry if I'm telling you this so late.
“Aww, that’s alright, friend! There’s still a couple minutes until my birthday’s over, technically. Thank you very much!”
Who wants birthday ear scratchies? :3c
“Gosh, that actually sounds nice right about now. Sure thing, scratch away!”
Happy birthday Drooper! How are you enjoying your day?
“Thank you very much, friend! Oh, and it has been a great day! The fellas actually prepared a strawberry cheesecake with chocolate covered strawberries as my birthday cake. We also played a concert at the amusement park as part of a birthday celebration with the fans. Boy, I sure did get a lot of presents afterwards, hehe!”
[[The fact that this Twitter story came up on this day of all days is…amazing. It’s called a rosy maple moth, but the website is referring it as the banana strawberry milkshake moth asdfghjksfsgj]]
