  • Lagarto leather armor

    I don’t know why you bother with our silly little club of misfits-

    -Furry will be around as long as mankind. From the first day a caveman drew a cave painting to the last days, when children hold their teddy bears as the bombs fall.

    • The characters who went back in time will be slightly traumatized and stunted. Spending a long time around other furries who did not will result in them realizing something’s up
  • Short 3-panels to show con life

  • Decision Tree

    Every scene is an opportunity

    Every so often a frame that is in intense detail, showing off the world for the character and audience

  • Hidy.

    Sometimes, you have such good friends that you don’t feel like you need to talk to them every day or every week or even every year and you let them slip away to keep a memory of a time burning clean and pristine, just the way you left it.

    Sometimes, we just hold onto a time we had with our friends because we just know that such a serendipity

    Ever wanted to keep a memory of a time with your friends that would never happen again, burning clean and pristine in your mind, so, so badly? And you ended up not talking to your friends again just to preserve that time forever?

    It’s wrong of us to leave the friends we love the most and never see them again. You’ll meet again, you think - but you don’t. Because the thought of it is so much sweeter. And every time we draw on our memory the image is just a little bit dimmer. But what can we do but try to hold onto it as long as we can?

    Y’know, I haven’t put thought to my friends in many a year now, but something made me want to start thinking again, and I always thought best when I’m playing. And it weren’t long I thought up myself a song with all my friends’ names in it. And it wasn’t long after I thought up a tune to go along with it.
    And well. Here it is.

  • Mole drives to the RF hotel. He’s talking on the phone all matter of fact like, pausing to draw on his vape in his other hand, all while grasping the steering wheel.

    Around him masked protests dissolve into police checkpoints dissolve into open roads.

    He stops at Toad’s mansion. Toad sends a drone down to talk to him because of corona.

    Mole talks Toad into coming down with him. In a fit he drives him down to the hotel with him.

    “What we are, everything we did - it’s all just a joke to these people. And we’ll never get those times back.”
    It’s not Mole’s role to be a leader. But he is motivated and competent enough to get the job done. He wants his past back and hasn’t put much thought into his task besides just getting things started.

    They talk about Fox, who they miss - who died at the con. Fox, the group leader - noble, clever, beautiful. They’ve fallen apart without him.
    They try and have a buddy moment but it unwinds right at the end

    It’s got to be right now, Toad. Right now, the hotel is desperate. They are just scraping by - they’ll make the deal.

    At a rest stop, Mole is surrounded by animals, which terrifies him. He hops back in the car and starts screaming. He peels out, knocking the deformed deer down.

    The last one in the room is Badger - the party animal.

    Oh no - it’s Badger.

  • Factions

        - Nature (Deer)
        - AltFurries (Toad)

  • How do we open?

    4 guys on a road trip, in a car covered in furry stickers. We get the feeling they are good friends and have been for a long time.

    They drive past political signs, through rallies, past police and all sorts of crazy shit. Interspersed are bits of writing. They talk calmly of party plans. MC chats through phone. You only hear one side of conversation but there is a little sadness there. Implied - where they’re going they don’t have to worry about that kind of thing.

    HE was just about all worn out, but round about June he has pulled himself together the strength for one last adventure.

    the heat of June stirred him; and before long his clever mind was working again on plans long-abandoned, and by August he was ready to make this abstract idea concrete.

    He has taken his friends on this journey, and though he is quietly desperate the mood is light and joyful.

    On the way down a twisted figure stumbled onto the road before them. It once was a deer but was since a skeletal, papillomaed falsehood, a terrible facial fibroma twisting onto it a drooling leer. It did not comprehend what was wrong with itself and it was calm as it gasped for breath on its knees in the median, steam framed in headlights, and it watched back at them sidewise like a flatfish with its horrible twisted face.
    We gotta help it.
    Yeah.
    Call the cops or something.
    What are they going to do.
    Fucking shoot it or something.
    Behind them other lights began to line up in their mirrors, but nobody honked. Fox cracked his door. On quaking legs the deer squatted and pissed on the road, and then it lurched into the treeline on the far side where there was nothing but the ocean.

    Presently, he remembers that he is asking his friends for a favor, and ventures to speak as to lessen his burden.

    He is tired but he must speak. His friends are his friends but his ask is great.

    Fox - sneaky, manipulative, stylish
    Badger - big, slow, dumb, fun loving, but wise
    Mole - small, sniveling, nobody listens to him.
    Toad - battle buddy of Badger? Rich, dickhead. Like the guy from DA

    Opener needs to illustrate

    • What is furry
    • How much do the characters love RF?
  • Mole drives to the RF hotel. He’s talking on the phone all matter of fact like, pausing to draw on his vape in his other hand, all while grasping the steering wheel.

    Around him masked protests dissolve into police checkpoints dissolve into open roads.

    He stops at Toad’s mansion. Toad sends a drone down to talk to him because of corona.

    Mole talks Toad into coming down with him. In a fit he drives him down to the hotel with him.

    “What we are, everything we did - it’s all just a joke to these people. And we’ll never get those times back.”
    It’s not Mole’s role to be a leader. But he is motivated and competent enough to get the job done. He wants his past back and hasn’t put much thought into his task besides just getting things started.

    They talk about Fox, who they miss - who died at the con. Fox, the group leader - noble, clever, beautiful. They’ve fallen apart without him.
    They try and have a buddy moment but it unwinds right at the end

    It’s got to be right now, Toad. Right now, the hotel is desperate. They are just scraping by - they’ll make the deal.

    At a rest stop, Mole is surrounded by animals, which terrifies him. He hops back in the car and starts screaming. He peels out, knocking the deformed deer down.

    The last one in the room is Badger - the party animal.

    Oh no - it’s Badger.

  • Last paragraph of this section - how do we leave these characters before they arrive at the next section (the hotel) that shocks us slightly, and makes us believe we’ve seen something that we have never seen before?

    What we say here is a promise to the reader that the rest of the story will be good.

  • Grand Flow of things

  • No, gentlemen, there will be no con, furry or otherwise.

  • Defeated, the characters return to the hotel room.

    MC sees the Prince of the Forest through the window. He is cool looking - electric blue eyes. Neon.
    The Prince is God. This scene is reverent.

    The Prince approaches the window, and their eyes meet through the glass.
    MC speaks: “Oh…it’s you. You’re beautiful…so beautiful. I’ve forgotten. Don’t run off… stay here with me, please. Just stay.”
    The Prince throws off his hood.

    Realizing himself suddenly, Jimmy drops his bottle and cleans himself up.

    The old magic of this place is long dead, Jimmy. I do not like being here.

    “But why? What is this?”
    And a blinding anger suddenly flashes over him. He slaps the window. “Why have you come now? Why tonight, you fuck?”
    “So many times, I needed you so bad. And now I’ve failed one more time. All that I’ve lost, you weren’t there then. Now I have nothing left to be worthy of you! Fuck off. Get the fuck out of here!”

    The great head dipped then, and then a whisper, like the rustle of leaves. “Time is irrelevant. Place, not so. You are here.”

    “Time IS relevant to me. An eternity. Five years of struggling, of watching everything crumble around me. And now I have nothing left.” He sobs. “Don’t waste your time with me.”

    “It hasn’t been wasted yet.”

    He pushes his head through the window. “Are you afraid of me, dear Jimmy?”

    “Oh no, I could never be afraid of you. But I know I should be…I should be.”

    Their lips meet.
    “There are many things I can yet take from you, Jimmy. But perhaps just one thing, tonight.”

    “Time.”

    They wake up to the lyrics of “Stressed Out” by 21 Pilots: “But now I’m insecure, and I care what people think”

  • Deer shows up and wants to hang out. He arrives bearing a drink and a joint.

    They are immediately pulled into a party - each is pulled their own way into their own secret groups.

  • No we need to get back to the festival TRADITION

  • End of battle 1:

    They’re lying around panting.

    Fox looks at his watch.

    Alright. Let’s get back to the party.

  • Furry news service

    *well meaning authority but fucks everything up
    -what are you going to do now?
    -well I was thinking of getting the fuck out of here

  • Rules - nothing sketchy in the hall. Don’t damage the property.

  • Ah, wine. Not trying to brag or anything, but I am the hephaestus of alcohol to your kind. I once stepped through a vineyard and in my ruined wake left behind…this.

  • Characters look like furries so we can occasionally have a realistic fursuit scene

  • Anthro

  • Non-anthro

  • Characters

    All hyper competent with their own roles(Star Trek)

    Captain (Fox)
    Bruiser (Badger)
    Brains (Mole)
    Money (Toad)
    Slut (Rat)

  • 2 ex-politicians meet at the bar to discuss old faction policy.

    Sometimes, I believe you were actually right about poodling

  • A random volleyballer family wanders by interrupting scenes

    Jesus! Come back!

  • Mole is checking his phone in the car. 2000 favorites on his rf tweet. And he hasn’t even gone to the hotel yet. This has to work

  • Other characters

    • Bird furry who scares birds all day with a propane cannon to stop them from landing in the Berkeley Pit.
  • “Tassez-vous les pauvres” which roughly translates to “get out of my way your poor fucks”

    That’s Jimmy. He don’t talk.
    Oh, that’s all right. Pleased to meet you Jimmy.
    Hello.
    …..

    Where’s .

    Oh my god, I can’t believe it. How is this possible?

    We’re in 2015 boys.

    Where’s . He’s not in the bathroom

    Gonna phone your parents?

    Well, I guess we wouldn’t be furries if we had happy childhoods

    Anyone had anyone die in the past couple years?
    Oh shit…Bobby. Bobby died and he’s here

    BITCOIN! BITCOIN BITCOIN!

    Holy shit it’s actually kind of expensive.
    Want to split one with me?

    I’m gonna buy a thousand. Wait a minute. Oh shit. No…I haven’t won the lottery yet. Oh no. I don’t remember the numbers. I’ll never get those numbers again. I’m broke

    I haven’t DJed in 5 years

    each of these men thought themselves irreparably broken

    and saw their second chance in furry

    but instead these fatherless men found primalcy

  • Conversation with hotel staff
    Aftermath in room
    A final walk around the grounds

    Ending

  • Shit.
    hisses stop stop stop

    <he stops

    Not tonight. Things got a little fucked up. I’m going to try again tomorrow, offer them more money.

    <he advances again, moving the table out of the way

    I did not come here to enforce a deadline. But he who would bear bad news should know to beware me.

    Well, guess what, I fucked up again.

    You have to get out of here! you’re gonna wake everyone up

    You’re the only one they can hear.

    Of all the miserable assholes in this world, why me?

    Because you’re the only miserable asshole who can help me fix everything, Jimmy. And I think it’s time that I took what I need.

    I’m going to take your time Jimmy - five years of it. Five wasted, disassociated, drunken years. You won’t miss a thing, my boy.

  • Hide in babyfur room
    Babyfurs agree to disguise them
    Con security busts in
    They leave
    The MCs leave - but babyfurs say “Don’t forget us”
    Later, they stand up for them

  • One char is Indian
    Fights like ghurkas against neo Nazis
    One char is an rp warrior
    But they fight together
    Rp warriors account is like initiation to war

  • Pros

  • Cons

  • Cons

  • Pros

  • Fox, the leader (Homelander)

    Takes Mole’s glasses to solve a problem and breaks them

  • Badger, the Himbo (RIKER)

    What’s with the new couples badge? And what happened to your old one?
    I love ‘im.

    God blessed me with size and strength in a world where I am constantly forced to hold back

    Don’t matter much to me. I’m used to watching everyone else with plenty while I hunt for scraps.

  • Mole, the Shut-in ()

    Mole is an “expert” at being a gentleman.
    An ex-chair of the con.

    It’s the damn nazis again.
    Trust them to show up.

    “Milady” is an incel thing, not a renfaire thing!
    Later: Milady, perhaps I can help-

    Don’t ever speak to my friend like that again. Or else you’ll face the beast I have imprisoned inside.
    WTF
    shows his teeth

    dancing No, no - don’t touch me there. This is - my no, no square.

    This is an important time in my life.
    I need to appreciate this. I need to sear it into my memory forever.

    Mole: I just don’t react fast…I get caught up in the mechanics if it’s OK to do something sometimes and it just holds me up
    Badger: well, some dudes just got explosion in them, and some don’t
    Mole, later: Explosion…explosion!

    Mole + Deer at first
    Then, a crucial situation occurs. Fox speaks up. Deer begins to follow Fox. Mole is crushed.

    I’m going to make you mine

  • Toad (The paranoid MAGA)

    Very slow to react. Gets made fun of it - later he is the only one to get hit by something.

    During the story he hits someone up on howlr, organizes a meeting, and then blocks them. Later, he unblocks to look at the messages, then deletes them.

  • Rat (Ho)

  • Deer

    A hint of Gene Wilder from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    He cannot be understood and that is what makes him dangerous

    But every god needs a temple, and a temple you will build for me.
    Here. I will have this place as my church.

    Shit. I don’t think we been more ready before.

    I have seen your vinegar strokes

  • Manatee

    Old, stupid, collects comics, binders, 80s furry art

    He was the last one left. A dwindling herald of an age lost before the Internet.

  • Coyote

  • Alright, take five Jenny.
    She’s great, isn’t she? You should’ve told us this was a big convention you were planning. I handle the bigger events myself.

    So you want….and…and…
    Oh, you want the dance hall? Hey, those comic nerds haven’t wanted to rent out the dance hall before, but that fortnite’s got the new generation dancing, right?
    That’s a lot of rooms. Blah blah

    Oh, but we have another event in the hotel at the same time, there might be some double bookings but let me see what I can do.

    oh well maybe we can reschedule
    No need, you’re both small events, we can squeeze you in.

    You got the dance hall… no you don’t. My boys need that. My boys need the side lounge, the lobby… looks like your room blocks are gone too. It’s all fucking gone.

  • A final walk around the grounds

    Scenes

    Sees something shining in the flower bed
    Digs out an old whipit and brushes it off

  • Of all the people in the world, why did you pick me

    Because, none of them can help me.

  • Hidy.

    Oh god…did you come for me? Did you come to take me away?

    Boy. You’re jest a sorry sonuvabitch, aren’t you? The state of you, I’m thinkin I’m just wasting my time.

    Nono not wasting your time please stay

    Good thing, too. Good help’s hard to find of late. I aim to deputize me some good help.

    Now, no more of that. I’m going to speak to you very simply and clearly, and if you know what’s best for you, you’ll listen and you’ll get your head together.

    Hell fire.
    Shit fire
    disremember
    wishing hell upon you
    i don’t give a good shit

    It is that.

    Boy you’re a slow one ain’t ye

    I got to get on

    you aint one of those boys just fixing to get to know a man by the state of his dress, are you?
