Follow TV Tropes
This Text Adventure is (heavily) inspired by Steven Universe, so we will be following the plot little by little! With our own plot twists and extras too, though. And now, let's start with the basics!
October 2012, House of ex-indie comic writer and current storyboard artist Caroline Biscuit
"So, I have a pitch. About a half-alien kid who lives with three Plant Alien aunts and has adventures with them, saving Earth and the universe, starting with the small town they live in with a Slice of Life tone before getting more serious stuff."
"Sounds nice, Caroline. What's the name of the kid, and how they look and act?"
Give the kid a name, appearance and personality!
(OOC: Please give the kid a nature and/or plant-related surname at least, like Rachel Evergreen or Sam Forest!)

Our name is Potato Marijuana.
Our name is Potato Marijuana and we are a young boy, about 14 but we look a bit younger. We are relatively short with a thick, stocky build. We have fair skin and curly dark brown hair. We wear a pink T-shirt with a cannabis leaf on it and cuffed blue jeans. Due to our alien heritage, we have a cannabis leaf where our belly button should be, and it is the source of our magic powers. We are generally a super-excitable, hammy kid.

We are Cilantro "Cilan" Moss. A 12 year old boy who is rather short and is has a decent body shape. He has turquoise colored hair and wears a t-shirt of his favorite video game character,Kirby,and wears a black fleece jacket over it. He also wears beige shorts. Cilan is very serious young boy who is way more mature than his aunts. Itís why he was appointed as a leader but he is also very shy and struggles with autism.

> The kid's name is C. D. Quercus. (They originally called him 'seedy' when he was a baby, but, well...). He loves going out adventuring in the forest alone, helping in the garden (mostly so he can get all muddy), and pretending he's Tarzan. He's got unruly brown hair, soft brown eyes, and tanned olive skin. He can usually be found in a nerdy tee-shirt and overalls, sneakers, and a baseball cap.

"The kid's name is Cilantro "Cilan" D. Moss, and they called him Seedy as a baby. Short, and chubby. Wears a Kirby t-shirt and blue jeans, and sneakers and a baseball cap. Pretty excitable and hammy and loves adventuring in the forest, but also a bit shy towards people."
"Maybe Kirby would need to be changed to some Show Within a Show, but it looks good, Caroline! What about his alien heritage?"
"He's part Florian from his mother's side, so he inherited a Bud, which is like, how to say it? The "Main computer" of the Florians. The heart and brain all in one. Every Florian has a different one. There is a caste system in their homeworld, though. Differeng types of plants have different roles and stuff."
"So, where is his Bud and what is it?"
Choose a plant and a placement for the Bud!
(OOC: Preferably something with flowers. I dunno.)
>Petunia on his left shoulder
>His bud is a snapdragon in the middle of his forehead
> Ophiocordyceps unilateralis growing out of our scalp
> A calla lily on his left wrist.
> A dandelion in front of his left ear
A cherry blossom on his navel
> A nightshade on his forehead
> Mycorrhizae which appears on his body like hair
>A bramble growing around his neck.
>A cherry blossom on his navel
"It's a petunia on his navel."
"Good. What about his "aunts"?"
"There is Snapdragon, short and wild, with her Bud in her left shoulder; Dandelion, thin and dainty, with her Bud in her forehead; and Apricot, big and aloof, with two Buds, one in her forehead and another in her left wrist. Together they form the Botanical Plants."
"Why two Buds?"
"You'll understand later."
"For the first part of the season, nothing too apparently important. Just Monster of the Week stuff, like wild brambles and strawberry monsters. Nothing too scary until the Halloween episode, and nothing about the Plants' past until the mid-season finale."
"What are you planning for that?"
"The Zombie Ant Plant, Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis for Halloween. Not really a plant, but will be good. As for the mid-season finale, maybe a Nightshade."
"Neat. But what about Cilan's mom?"
What happened to Cilan's mom? Or at least, what was Cilan told about it? What kind of person she was? Is she dead, or still alive?
(OOC: Keep ya spoilers in spoilered text. We don't need to find out that Cilan's mom was a rebel or something now.)
> Cilan's mother was killed in a freak electric guitar accident.
> Cilan's mom died when he was only a toddler.
>Disappeared in a freak accident while coming back from groceries.
>Killed by electric guitar whilst going to the store for milk
> She was a magical girl who was ran over by a truck.
>"Went to buy cigarettes."

"His mom died in a freak electric guitar accident while going to the store for milk and groceries when he was a toddler after being ran over by a truck."
"She was also kind of a magical girl on Earth too."
"Okay. What about the dad?"
"A neat dude, but we can talk about him later. Now I gotta show you the concept art."
