>>2101841>>2101915Well, I'm still alive, but I don't know how much more my laptop can take. I accidentally knocked one of my lamps over onto it, and it connected juuuust right to smash a bunch of keys. It took me a while to get the enter, shift, and question mark keys working again, and the shift key is pretty dicey now. Apologies for the delay, I was working as fast as I could. Then I couldn't figure out how to make the kind of garbage can I was picturing in my head, and that took a bunch of time before I gave up and made the bin.I guess this might be the impetus to get that new laptop I've been thinking about for the last couple of years.

Might kick the tires on your new car, Zack!"Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please! To roll, put dice+1d12 in the Options field!
If Model T-Rex is hunting us because we're the coolest kid in town, could we escape our doom by spending the next hour and a half making a total fool of ourselves in front of everyone at Daisy's party?
>>2111745That'd essentially be passing the blame on somebody else, and there really isn't anybody who deserves it.I think we should race him as fast as possible and hopefully get the car destroyed
>>2111753That sounds a lot more exciting as a finale and considerably more dignified. I suppose our most pressing concern now is raising that six-fifty.
Rolled 1 (1d12)>>2111716Shout that it's time for Daisy to open Rex's present to her. If he didn't bring one maybe he'll face some heat for a change.
>>2111775>Rolled 1 (1d12)Oh for fucks sake. That's it, I'm going back to lurking. Stupid ideas, stupider rolls.
"Hey, Zack! Great news, I just did a head count and there are more than fifteen people here, so their cover charges plus the five hundred bucks from Daisy's parents means you'll get your six-fifty!""Uh... that's-""See ya in a little while, Zack!"
"WAIT A SECOND, EVERYBODY! I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY!"[excited murmurs]
"Rex was just about to take off... but it seems to me he forgot to give Daisy his present!""Uh, Zack-""Not now, Jerry. So how about it, Rex? You DID get a present for Daisy, didn't you?""Zack-""Huh?"
[yipping noise]"Oh, Sparkles, you're the best present ever! Thanks again, Rex!"
>>2111775>>2111780>Oh for fucks sake. That's it, I'm going back to lurking. Stupid ideas, stupider rolls.Don't feel bad anon, there's no way you could have succeeded because you can see Rex giving Daisy his present in this shot >>2111664 That's it for tonight but this thread isn't done yet! A big thanks to everyone for playing!
>>2111840Thanks, LQ! I'm really looking forward to seeing how this storyline concludes.
>>2111846>I'm really looking forward to seeing how this storyline concludes.Me too!
>>2111840>he never saw it coming.jpgI certainly didn't!
>>2111861On the other hand the humiliating himself plan is coming along fine.
>>2111869Eventually Zack will be so uncool that the hot-rod from Hell will want nothing to do with him. All according to kiekaku.
>>2111919Even if it worked the car would probably just pick someone cool he cares about and then he'd be forced to fight to save them. Can't escape fate any more than I can escape shitty rolls.
Since this thread is in autosage, it's time for Easter eggs!>>2100602Zack's mom's car makes a reappearance. It was last seen when Zack took Felicity to the big Halloween dance in episode 5. It's a little more rusty than it was in that episode.>>2100753Interim Principal Skelman is of course the temporary principal since Zack, Mona, and Antoinette banished Principal Helman in episode 6.>>2101244A little hard to see from this distance, but the Pineapplehead walking out of the store has a Hawaiian shirt.>>2101925Liz and Eddie were first introduced in episode 7 when Zack gets blamed for breaking Eddie's skateboard. But it looks like he got a new one now, so he should be okay.>>2101929She was just going to be a skeleton with hair but then I remembered that I had skeleton legs with cute boots.>>2103824This store was the most fun to build>>2104324This salesgirl is obviously based on Leland Gaunt, the primary antagonist of the Stephen King novel Needful Things.>>2105129Moldingsworth was a character that didn't exist until just before I shot this picture because I realized at the last second that the Pushups needed a butler.>>2105264Francis, however, was an idea I had for a one-off joke enemy that turned into a new friend thanks to the amazing power of letting the good times roll. His portrait was a lot of fun to make. Just a photo of him run through a couple of quick Photoshop effects and printed out on glossy paper at a size that fit a 4x6 frame. The frame is built by SNOT bricks at the top and bottom with the tiles spanning the gaps between the SNOTs; the painting is pinned directly to the wall behind it.>>2105655The baseplate-stacking technique used to make the pool area was shown on /toy/ but I can repost it here. The math works out, so as long as you have bricks underneath the top plate to support it and keep it from bending, you can make as many depressions and rises as you want using full baseplates instead of the smaller standard plates.
>>2107878This outfit for Zack was really fun to put together>>2107898I have one regret from this episode: in this post I originally had Daisy say "You know Zack, if you break a girl's heart too many times, you won't like what's left", but I changed it at the last second to more vapid comment. At the moment I posted I thought it was too heavy-handed, but shortly after I started wishing that I had gone with my first idea. The perils of live theater!>>2108007Teenage drama is fun to write, but it's also a pain in the ass to script. I like to let the dice decide which way things go at any given moment, but I'm always worried that I'm overreaching in my interpretation of the roll.>>2108363Literally every trans-light blue stud I own>>2111509This Duplo present block is literally a present - I ordered some parts from a Bricklink seller a couple weeks ago, and they accidentally sent me a different part in place of one of the parts I had ordered. They mailed the correct part out the next day, plus a bunch of extra pieces, one of which was this surprise giant Duplo present, which was an amazingly providential coincidence since I was planning on running a birthday party episode that week!The lesser relatives on the wall behind Daisy are portrayed using the same build technique as General Pushup.>>2111515>>2111523Bonnie and Candie first appeared during the big squareball game against Morgrim Prep in episode 4 but this is the first time they're been named.>>2111664After I planted Rex in the background here I laughed out loud for about ten seconds when anon rolled a 1 to accuse him of not bringing Daisy a present.I'm not sure if I'll run more in this thread or finish this up in a new one, but either way, a big thanks to everybody for playing!As usual, if you want to read a bunch of previous episodes, most of the last 7+ years is on suptg:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=lego%20questThe official Lego Quest wiki with writeups for most of the kids at Daisy's party:http://legoquest.wikia.com/wiki/Lego_Quest_WikiAnd if you're on Twitter you can get twootered whenever a new episode premieres or an ongoing episode resumes:@EndmanOfFuturonGoodnight, Legonauts!
