McKinley: Discuss Summer Camp.
McKinley: "so Bri, how's camp been so far?" Bri: "Hey woah i was going to ask you!!" McKinley: "ah whoops dang, uh-" Bri: "Nono that's fine! Well," Bri: "So far so good i suppose? I've enjoyed this summer about as much as usual, Bri: Even though i got the cabin with The Nest in it this year, Bri: Kinda hard to sleep at night with that thing over head..." McKinley: "woah THE Nest?? McKinley: the big ol wasp hive in the rafters?" Bri: "The very same Big Old Wasp Hive, yes." McKinley: "aw dang that means you got Cabin 15." McKinley: "luckyyyy, i got stuck in Cabin 11" McKinley: "with Percy McConnell, who's worse than Wasps" Bri: "Oh nooo!" McKinley: "He SNORES!!" Bri: "Really wish I could have been with you MK, seriously!" McKinley: "SAME!!" Bri: "Your unbridled Summer Camp Enthusiasm makes this place a lot more..." Bri: "Energetic." Bri: "When I heard you were possibly not coming this year It got me kinda down." McKinley: "yeah that'd have been awful," McKinley: "haven't missed a year yet, and i would NOT be letting something, McKinley: like "surgery" stop me!" Bri: "Reminds me, what was your surgery? If it's not too invasive to ask..." McKinley: "uh... I dunno?"
McKinley: "dad says they had t' take somethin out, McKinley: some organ i forgot the name of." Bri: "Woah" "McKinley: "left these stitches in place until it closes up all the way" Bri: "looks nasty!" McKinley: "feels worse!!!" Bri: "Woah" McKinley: "and i can't like, go in the lake or climb a tree or do anything McKinley: that involves touching something "grimy" or stretching my waist until they close up." Bri: "Wow that's like, all you do!" McKinley: "i KNOW right??" Bri: "Hope that doesn't effect your mood too much!" McKinley: "i'm trying to avoid thinking about it too much, the birthday stuff helps for sure"
McKinley: "speakin of..." McKinley: "what's the box for?" Bri: "YOU, silly!" Bri: It's a gift!" McKinley: "woah was not expecting any MORE gifts!" McKinley: "given i already got three!" McKinley: "it's uh... not a juicer is it?" Bri: "what? no!" Bri: "why would you... who even would get a Juicer for a kid??" McKinley: "unno" Bri: "I think I know you better, Bri: than to buy you a kitchen appliance." McKinley: "so.. what is it?" Bri: "A SURPRISE, of course!" Bri: "You've got to open it!" McKinley: "..." Bri: "BUT first..." McKinley: "?"
Bri: Sing "Happy Birthday" to MK in a playfully teasing manner.
Bri: "I gotta sing you "happy birthday"!"
McKinley: Be Playfully Teased.
She's singing it.
It's very long.
She has a REALLY good voice for her age.
This is embarrassing.
But also like, Really Nice.
McKinley: Accept Bri's Present.
You graciously thank Bri and place the GIFT FROM A BEST FRIEND into your inventory for now.
(((Wow another long pause for another Mediocre update, also might be cutting the "bri" and "mckinley" from the text because typing those over and over AND color coding the text feels awkward, but idk it IS more colorblind friendly...)))
Nice update. OOC --> For the text, you can drop the Bri and McKinley if you want. If you still want it to be clear who is speaking, just put a
Spacer line between different speakers, and that should clarify everything.
McKinley -> Give Bri a (gentle) hug. And share your cake. Does the Camp have an Arts & Crafts place? You could probably do that without ripping your stitches. Or, maybe just go sit in the shade of a tree and skip rocks.

Your train of thought is interrupted by the sound of the CAMP BELL, something must be up.
McKinley: Follow the bell.
But then again, something's always "up", shenanigans are the lifeblood of camp, and birthdays, and camp birthdays!
Camp Birthday or otherwise, though, you probably don't want to ignore the authority of the CAMP BELL.
The source of the ringing was, of course, the CAMP MESS HALL, which also functions as a MEETING HALL sometimes because budget reasons, you're still a bit too young to know what that's all about, but it's an okay place to do gatherings in when you need to.
The hall is starting to fill up as more camp-goers follow the signal, and the SUPER HIP AND COOL TEENLIKE CAMP COUNSELOR stands at the other end of the room, looking over to see if everyone's arrived.
((heeeey, it's me, that last update was a cutoff designed for interactibility, but i guess it was REALLY REALLY bad at that, i am still figuring out what is/isn't a good place to hand you all control and thinking it over that last one wasn't very obvious for what you could do. I've kinda pushed McKinley into a more suitable room for wacky stuff to go down in. hope that long pause wasn't enough to kill readerhoof of this thing.
and similarly hope this story annex isn't too uh, boring? i know this isn't a mountain climbing adventure right now, but i hope you can bear trudging through these memory pockets cuz i got a few more instances that might crop up eventually. we'll see. ANYWAY, what will she do???))
twotriickhoofbea2t --> Interactivity is OK. I was out of town for 3 weeks and so wasn't able to respond/read. Even if the scene is in a spot where it's hard to suggest, we're still excited by it. Also, if you have a suggestion and we don't, feel free to follow your gut on it. Thanks for doing this.

Hey woah it's been almost a year, hopefully this is still a Valid Update, haha. Seriously though sorry, i got sick, then preoccupied, then sick again, then forgot, then i got sick AGAIN, and now it's June 2018, oh lord that's a lot of time lost.
I had the Images for this update pretty much done from the get-go, but got caught up on the flow/text part, I'm a terrible writer so that happens Oops. sorry for the Hussie-esque level of hiatus there, i shoulda kept track better, but i'm back so here's more of that Summer Camp Stuff (in summer too!)
You snag the BIRTHDAY BALLOON hanging overhead because you have no idea.
Maybe you just never know when you might need one of those.
You look over by the BUFFET and see a BOY, his name is, coincidentally, HOWIE BUFFET,
He wishes people didn't point it out, but maybe he shouldn't stand next to things with the same name as him in the future!!!
Examine Buffet of the non-Howie variety
You were going to talk to him but you decided against it, He's a bit of a NERD anyway,
He just stares at you as you walk past him to examine the selection of FRESHISH FOODS laid out.
Like these INCREDIBLY SOFT MASHED POTATOES, you love when they're like that, really creamy and rich.
Sometimes you wish you could have them like that more often, at home they're always kind of chunky and hard, it seems like potato mashing is a bit of a LOST ART at times.
?? : "Everyone? May I have your attention please?"
It's the SUPER HIP AND COOL TEENLIKE CAMP COUNSELOR, with news about the camp activities.
"Wonderful, now, I've called you all in to tell you that, unfortunately, camp activities are going to be unavailable for the coming days.
I Know you're all probably very disappointed, but there's been an ongoing police investigation in this area, and for the sake of your safety, we've decided it's for the best to keep you kids indoors while that's happening. "
"I'm sorry to have to tell you this, and don't want you all to feel down about it, but you're all going to be restricted to your cabins for the remainder of Camp Time until you can be sent home, Please find ways to occupy your time, and try to still keep a positive outlook, we're still at Summer Camp here, but also remember to stay out of trouble and be safe!"
And yes, i am aware this update cuts off weirdly, it's coming in two parts, i just didn't want to delay it any longer, hope there's still people reading this!
