[This appears in the late afternoon.

There is a splash of something that looks suspiciously like tea or weak coffee.]

Castle, Genius is over here right now. Something seems wrong with him; I think he may be [pause, pen taps] ill.

Did you notice anything strange about him this morning?

No, he left for work before I got up.

... what, exactly seems wrong?

[identity profile] bloody-pens.livejournal.com 2011-03-28 10:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, dear. He's taken a shine to you, Fred! Maybe this is a failed attempt at courting you.

[identity profile] bloody-pens.livejournal.com 2011-03-29 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
... I'd like to say that maybe he's starting to snap out of it a little bit, but...

[A dot as he lets his pen rest on the page, and nothing more.]

[identity profile] bloody-pens.livejournal.com 2011-03-29 02:32 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll come get him, yeah. Because even cheerful Genius doesn't cook. Or clean without whining the whole time.

[A pause as he looks at the other replies to this entry; his next sentence is crossed out soon after being written.]

I was about to say that maybe he'd eaten a bad apple, if you catch my drift, but if it's happening to Bell and Apple, too...

Thank you. I'll be there ASAP.

But why just them? Usually when something like this happens, it seems to happen to almost everyone...

God, I hope not.
live_ringer: (That I have found it.)

Willingly doing housework, unasked, with no complaints.

I don't suppose we have any rogue hypnotists, or people with talents for brainwashing running about, do we?
live_ringer: (Should I tell the mindless stumbling on?)

[personal profile] live_ringer 2011-03-30 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
I have seen some, but no one I knew well. It didn't seem nearly so off as Genius acting like that.
live_ringer: (Stop. Hey. What's that sound?)

[personal profile] live_ringer 2011-04-03 10:03 pm (UTC)(link)

Guess the only thing to do is monitor it to figure out what the hell is going on.
spandexisyouth: (Er)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
He [pentaps as he reads.]

Bell is like that too. Smiling. And cleaning.
spandexisyouth: (Distant)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
Since I got home from work today. He will not explain what is going on, either.
spandexisyouth: (Faded green)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
No. I came home to the dogs outside, locked out. And he is trying to ignore me.
spandexisyouth: (Down but not out)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
I do not know. I have considered trying to find a secure place for the dogs while I look for information, but I have nowhere to start. He did not work today. He fine when I left him and now he is like this, and I do not think he left the house.
spandexisyouth: (Distant)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 05:56 am (UTC)(link)
Apple already has plenty of pets to look after. But I will see what he thinks when I take them for a walk soon. I should have about a half-hour ago.

Yes. But I do not like it.
spandexisyouth: (By force of will)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 06:05 am (UTC)(link)
True. I will go find out.

[About an hour later.]

...It has happened to Apple too, Fred.
spandexisyouth: (Bring it on)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-29 06:27 am (UTC)(link)
They are not well enough. They are not really happy, even if their faces are forced to seem happy. They are not themselves. It will not be enough.

He will not even eat and it is leftovers of something he made. This is not all right.
spandexisyouth: (Faded green)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-03-30 06:50 am (UTC)(link)
Bell will only clean and work. He will not sit down, or read, or do anything that is Bell-like.
spandexisyouth: (Bring it on)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-04-04 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
It is already a problem and already too long.
spandexisyouth: (Er)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-04-05 06:38 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. I understand. We will figure it out, I am sure.
spandexisyouth: (Distant)

[personal profile] spandexisyouth 2011-04-01 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. Though it sounds like it is three. Genius and Apple and Bell.

Last I remembered from when I was here, Genius was never like that.
