BUMP. Are you there?
Sorry gang, I've been intensely busy this past week. I should be able to get a post out tonight.
Kylo and Caddicarus sit across the room from each other, and exchange thoughts. They have an intense argument in their psychic connection, and make it clear that this relationship has been detrimental to both parties. Kylo even begins to tear up, and grows beat-red. He gets up, and leaves.
Caddicarus shakes his head, before yelling out. Now stay out of my head!
The houseguests are ushered into the backyard, and asked to grab several disco balls, all of which are strung to the ceiling, yet hung low to the ground. The houseguests are asked to quickly grab the disco balls as the floor below them gives way to a massive disco chasm.
Power Stroke, who was caught off-guard, and without hands, falls down the chasm quickly, while the other houseguests just barely grab onto the disco balls.
CATS' fingers slip, and he soon falls down, though he is quickly followed by Beat and Shownu. Nemo, who'd been holding onto the disco ball with his lucky fin, eventually loses his grip and falls.
Avdol clenches his grip to keep a hold on the disco ball, but he goes a little to hard, crushing the disco ball, and sending him falling into the deep.
Kylo begins to struggle. His arms begin to falter a bit. He looks around and sees Tony, Sylvia and Caddicarus all remain stable. He begins to have a terrible, horrible idea.
He lets one of his arms go, and quickly uses the force to manipulate the disco balls into going berserk. However, he underestimates the strength he held in his other arm, as he soon loses hold and falls into the chasm.
The three remaining houseguests try their best to hold onto the now wildly twisting and turning disco balls, however both Tony and Caddicarus are unable to keep a hold for long, and lose their grip. Sylvia is able to keep a hold on long enough to become the HOH.
Sylvia walks in on Power Stroke and Nemo. They're complaining that many of these competitions cater to humans alone, specifically their arms. Sylvia, who views these complaints as excuses, nominates them for eviction.
Sylvia, Power Stroke, Nemo, and the random draws, Mami, Shownu, and Caddicarus, go out to the backyard and find a large beaver awaiting them. The beaver, a poet of some kind, has written poets coinciding to certain houseguests, and the players must guess the houseguest of choice in order to achieve the win.
Shownu is unable to perform well, and Sylvia and Mami end up underperforming for houseguests who weren't in their alliances. The competition is left up to Caddicarus, Nemo, and Power Stroke. The animals, surprisingly, know more about their humanoid houseguests than the others, since Caddy's only really got advantage on Kylo.
Between Power Stroke and Nemo, Power Stroke's databasing ability assists somewhat, but ultimately, Nemo just gets poetry. He picks up the POV with ease, and saves himself from nomination. In his place, Sylvia puts up Beat, who she realizes is something of a competition threat.
Power Stroke watches a game of Shownuball between two teams of two, Kylo & Nemo VS Caddicarus & Beat. Everyone's having fun, and it seems the house really gets into it. As the game rages on, people seem to really like the chemistry between Caddicarus and Beat. The duo are clearly becoming fan favorites. Power overhears Tony and Mami chatting near to her. Wouldja look at them? They're naturals at the game. Hell, I might even vote Beat to stay.
Power takes the whole thing rather harshly, and she realizes she needs to increase her popularity in the house. In a nervous fit, she rushes the Shownuball stage, knocking the Shownunet over, and completely destabilizing the Shownupitching-mound. Power proceeds to try to play the game, despite not having a partner, and not understanding the rules. Shownu tries to escort her off the Shownufield, prompting her to having a public nervous breakdown, calling out all the houseguests in the stands. The house can't help but watch as she meticulously sorts through a cavalcade of dirt on the houseguests.
Once Power Stroke is done, she leaves, and the House is left looking on each other in silence. The game of Shownuball eventually continues.
By the next day, the houseguests are ready to vote between Beat and Power Stroke. Evictions, Page One, Two
Unsurprisingly, Caddicarus, CATS, Mami, Nemo, Shownu, and Tony vote to evict Power Stroke.
While Kylo and Avdol vote to evict Beat.
Power Stroke leaves ashamedly. Once she was surely the brains of the Quintet, yet one emotional breakdown sent her down a fatal path. Ten remain.

Shownuball, I'd play that, if I knew what that actually is.

Press F for Power.
RIP my adorable nerd pone.
And we have even more broken alliances...
RIP, Power Stroke
You guys do realize she's not dead, right?
I know, the RIP was a joke.
Ouch, if it was me and Nemo didn't get the veto, I'd be thrown into a massive dilemma, because I don't want to vote against either. Though I guess Nemo was upset with Power for dragging him into the mess.
Still, ouch for poor Pow-Pow. (literally pow'ed away to Changeling Kingdom come by said mare)

Fun fact: Kylo voted incorrectly at every eviction except Valecor's.
So... it's been almost a week, new update soon?
~Taco Badger What's wrong?
Full transparency; itís been show-week on my end, so TV Tropes has been a bit low priority-wise. I still have the save and everything, but Iíve been intensely busy.
...should someone take over at this point?
That name does not make me feel confident.
You tell me when he hosts an HGS season. (shot)
