[The video starts pointing out the window, toward a yard where autumn-colored leaves are falling off the local trees. Ecruteak is great for that.]
So, we're halfway through October. It's been quiet so far, far as I know anyway. If things are going to be anything like the last few years, though, it's not gonna stay that way, so I guess this is kind of your friendly reminder not to go out alone this month. Not even for a five minute trip to the store, because you never know if a bunch of Duskulls and Shuppets are playing tug of war with a thing they shouldn't be for stupid reasons just around the corner.[After a pause, he lets out a long sigh.]
That being said. Since you never know who's interested, and since some
folks around this house still need to learn to let go of things that it'd be really
nice to finally forget about...[The camera view shifts to show that Ryner is standing... in the middle of a kitchen. And on the counter, there are a few bowls, a few containers of ingredients, a Yamask unsurely fiddling with a mini white board, and a Clefairy who looks very much like she does not want to be there.]
...Marian has agreed to teach everyone how to make dango. Anybody watching this, and me, and yes, you too, Rose.["Fairy!" She is so very not pleased.]
Don't even try it today, this has gone on way too long and you know it. ...Well, anyway. Marian, whenever you're ready.[he says as he puts the camera down where it has a good view of the whole counter. The Yamask trills cheerfully, and then pulls out and offers to Ryner... an apron. Mostly plain, though there's a little bit of lace at the bottom...
...He kind of stares at it for a moment.]
...Ahh, that's taking it a little too far, though. Why'd you even get that...?( And here's an OOC cut for some TL;DR on the cooking itself. )[Once they're cooked, and put on skewers, and once Marian has happily written her final note that says "And that's how you do it! See? It's not hard at all!" Ryner offers Rose one of the skewers.]
Thanks, Marian. So, Rose. What do you think?[She's notedly hesitant. Because on the one hand, dango is the best. But on the other, kitchens and Marian and her dear partner should not be involved with both of those combined.
...Eventually dango being the best wins out, and she takes the skewer and takes a small bite of the one on the end. And chews thoughtfully.
And then goes over to Marian's white board, grabs a pen of her own, and writes, "Its not as good as the stuff from the store." But it doesn't look like she dislikes it, either.]
...Ahh, well, if you're not spitting it out in disgust or anything, I guess it's not too bad for a first time, then, right?[He'll just ignore the glare she's shooting him that screams "don't you even dare do this again Dear Partner" as he takes a stick to have himself, then grabs the camera to turn it off.]
