Perhaps... I'm at a loss on what to do. XD I have some ideas, so I'll keep thinking.


I think DeMarcus is going to start responding with NFL obscure references. Just more of his characterization and background.

I might just have carol go through the staff doors to either investigate or to make a complaint, but instead accidently uncover the suspicious person's intentions. XD

Nice, can't wait to see what Carol finds. Is it a KAOS hideout? A satanic cult? A Brony convention? XD

I forgot about this. I'd love to participate, but I'll be offline for a good bit of the summer.
I am an American Christian male with an interest in a variety of topics, like SF, classic rock, guns, space travel, military history, and video games (Nintendo/retro). Franchises I like include Star Wars, Star Trek, and Transformers.

OP -

I gotta say, I love all of your references to Rhett and Link's "Will it Taco" video. A modern classic, and definitely worthy of being referenced.

Hey Barapam! Good to see you. We have a good NS friend and fellow comedy writer here, folks! She's been on Infinites a lot.

Thank you! Expect an app to come in soonish-ish (with restrictions lifted, a relative is coming to visit this week).

Name: Conn Spirou
Age: 32
Sex: Male
Appearance:

Skills you believe will make you qualified for the workplace: I'm an investigating journalist, a bloodhound. I know a good story when I see it, and I always go to the bottom with it without letting the establishment stop me, even if they do anything to keep their dirty secrets secret. The people has a right to know!

Also, I'm pretty good at making sensational articles and headlines, which helps you guys sell single copies.
Previous Employment, N/A if none: A couple odd jobs here and there, otherwise N/A.


Explain More About Yourself: Look, you never knows who might be listening, and I'm pretty concerned about my privacy and integrity, so I prefer not to tell you too much, but I can say this: I'm born and raised in this town, and my ancestors were from Ireland and France. My star sign is Libra, and according to the Chinese zodiac I was born in the year of the dragon. My blood type is AB+. There you go. Happy?
Requests for your workspace: Lots of wall space for my cases to be pinned up on, and an endless amount of free office supplies to do so. And my two favorite framed posters. And a theremin.
ImageImage

Request for secondary job: Columnist, provided I'm allowed to write anything I want.
Preferred Type of Coverage: Conspiracies, cover-ups, cryptids, UFO:s, urban legends, the occult and paranormal, etc.
Likes and Dislikes (optional): Likes surf rock, rockabilly, psychobilly and punk. Dislikes licorice.
Running Gags: Overthinking and assuming there's evil conspiracies everywhere (for example, he once wrote a story about a real case of incompetence and corruption involving Anywhere's mayor, which would've been a real scoop, but he took it way too far with ungrounded accusations of connections to evil secret societies, so the bigger media houses didn't pick it up, so the mayor is still on his post). Can also be absent-minded. And he'll constantly try to convince the editor about his theories, especially when he feels the Carrot might be in danger due to various dark forces.
Other notes you feel are important for your employer to know: I don't let my own political opinions influence my work, for example during the election I wrote both about Pizzagate and the Russian collusion, if you remember. And while I do have a basement full of stuff from Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union and Imperial Japan, I'm not in favor of dictatorship, I just like their esthetics, ok? You know me, I'm a loyal American!

Because Barapam's character absolutely needs a theramin. And one provided for by the publication's budget, at that. :D

Considering that some of our protagonists are in the midst of finding themselves encountering a Satanic Lovecraftin cult, Conn might end up being one of the sanest people working in the Daily Carrot.

Consommer has already looked in the kitchen, though Digby can look with him also. Also, since Digby doesn't seem to be sticking on the chair, she should think about hurting her co-workers and her boss.

And commit some homegrown terrorism of blowing up a building with people with C4 mentos, but anything to advance the plot, so some of the new workers can be introduced. But make sure you take your time! :)

Edit: Also, when did Digby bring a gun in her purse? I didn't see it mentioned?

Mentioned it multiple posts, specifically starting with my first post, said she had a detective special holstered in her garter belt. I can pull them up if you like.
