If Wormmon could hear what Master Cookmon had said, he would be blowing milkshake out his nose, if he had a milkshake, and a nose. Wormy felt bad for the little fella having to endure such a hostile environment in the kitchen.
"What's the big idea with yelling and swearing when cooking? I don't cook, but it can't be that frustrating, can it? You get those cookies out of the oven in time, or there's gonna be BIIIIIG trouble, mister!"
After the burger cools down enough, Wormy takes a bite and smiles with delight.
"Wow! You can really taste the meat. Chomp chomp chomp!"
Wormmon lays on his back with the burger on his belly.
"Digimon don't need plates. You see a Leomon use a plate when he's digging into a carcass? Napkins are optional, no matter what my human pet says."
By pet, he means Tamer. Napkins were probably the one thing they needed most that they didn't have. Though would Wormmon care if he was walking around with food on his face? The other Digimon stop talking about the female anatomy, so in a rare moment of clarity, the Worm King shuts up about the subject. Wormy nearly finishes his burger and relaxes on the grass.
"Ahh, that feeling of not being hungry for a few minutes. Say, what are you 'mons up to after this? You ever been to a spa, or a play? What's the entertainment round these parts? Legs crossed for chainsaw juggling bears."

As Scarab consumed the burger, the voices around him were drowned out, muffled in every sense of the word as he put every ounce of focus he held onto this hamburger prepared by what some might say was a friend and others might say was a figurative younger sibling. By the time he had finished, he had formed a rather concrete and not at all biased opinion on this burger.
"This is a pretty good burger--your teacher taught you well." Scarab replied towards Ebi. He had genuinely spaced out throughout Polty and Wormmy's conversation, so he only caught small bits of everything that was being said. "Call me uncultured but I just eat with my claws. Dish sets optional. As for what I'm up to...Not a lot. Just enjoying a small break from work and whatnot."
The pink Burgamon variant blinked his dot-shaped eyes in confusion. “Hammerspace? No, Ma’am, there’s no space in my hat for a hammer.” Did anyone really expect the lost kid to know anything about the concept of Hammerspace? That was complex scientific stuff! “Besides, a hammer would be a useless tool in a kitchen.” Not like Digimon cooks ever had the need to grind meat using a mallet, seeing how their meat literally grew on trees and all. However, Ebi nodded at the Meicoomon’s suggestion. “I’ll make sure to pack lots of plates next time, Miss Polty!”
Wormy was confused as to what the deal was with chefs being so prone to yelling and swearing, as if that was somehow a trend he was unaware of. Ebi didn’t know, but he had a theory as to the why. “Well… Master Cookmon’s restaurant gets lots of customers everyday, which means that dishes have to be made super fast. That’s why he gets mad, because if one cook messes up, it hurts everyone.”
The young cook shivered when the Wormmon casually talked about how Leomon apparently ate carcasses. On the other hand, his suggestions for finding some entertainment only got him another confused stare from the EbiBurgamon. “What’s a spa? And what’s a chainsaw?” He curiously asked.

"Don't worry about the Hammerspace stuff; it's a videogame joke." Polty would clarify to Ebi, waving a hand in a casual, dismissive fashion. "Still, the fact that your hat acts like an Infini-Store is pretty cool; and pretty convenient, I'd say." She'd muse; grinning briefly. The mental image of little Ebi, having a giant warhammer, though... It'd make the Meicoomon softly giggle to herself; smiling with a hint of amusement. "... A giant warhammer would be one heck of a weapon for such a little guy like you, though; maybe you could get yourself one, when you digivolve, and get bigger?" It was hard to say whether she was joking on this end or not; though in Polty's case, it was a little bit of column A, a little bit of column B.
She'd next glance to Wormy, at his mention of Leomons and carcasses, and make a puzzled expression. "Human horror movies might be full of carcasses... But we don't really do that, Wormy." She'd remark. "We just break down into data when we die; are you talking more about loading...?"
Frankly, she found Wormy to be a bit of a puzzling Wormmon in general; but maybe that was just her.
In any case, at the question of what she'd be up to after this, Polty shook her head. "Not much, honestly; I was probably gonna just get my bike out and ride off, if we had talked our fill. I'm a bit of a free spirit." She'd comment; adding "Haven't been to a spa before, but plays aren't really my thing, honestly. Chainsaw juggling bears, I've yet to see any, but... That sounds pretty awesome," Polty would briefly laugh with this, grinning faintly.
At Ebi's questions though, Polty would glance over to him; thinking of how to describe it. "Spas are... places where people bathe in special medicinal waters; usually to relax and take it easy." She'd explain; adding "And chainsaws are sort of... Like basic handsaws, but with an electric motor to help with the cutting!"
Ebi is too young to know what Wormy is talking about. The Worm King isn't the brightest hammer in space either. Ebi explains how Master Cookmon's restaurant is very busy and mistakes are costly. "I thought Hammer Space was a movie. Why wouldn't you want a hammer in the kitchen? Ah, cooking sounds hard and makes no sense!"
Scarab may have a unique color, but he is a simple bug. What use would a Wormmon have for a fork or spoon out in the wild? The bug likes the burger and praises Ebi's teacher. Wormy finishes his burger and exhales slowly as he relaxes.
"Yum! That was a good burger, little dude. Thank you!" As for spas and chainsaws, Polty fills Ebi in. Maybe Wormmon should set a better example and filter himself around the youngling? "Bah! Sorry for all the big words. I'm not used to being around young-ins. This must be what it is like when a teenager gets stuck at the kid's table."
Polty tells Wormmon that Digimon don't eat the kill like lions, that they download their data. "I know about data loading, but I saw this video on MeTube where two Leomon were snacking on this Digimon. I think it was called Gazellemon. It was disgusting. SUPER DATS should really look into that."
Hopefully Wormmon is mistaking a video of actual lions instead. If there were two Leomon going around eating Digimon raw, it would be very concerning. Puzzling was one way of describing Wormy. Scarab didn't have anything planned, and Polty was going to ride off after the meal. Polty says they haven't been to a spa but are not much for plays.
"I've got some time, but if you 'mons want to split now that we're done eating, that's fine, I guess. I want to visit a spa, but I'm not sure where the nearest is. Ebi, I'm guessing you are too young to have a link to your cooking on the webs? Maybe some pictures of your best dishes? You can follow me at Glorious Worm King on attention miner dot com. Be sure to like, share, and subscribe. I don't know what that means, but everyone online likes saying it."

It was probably safe to presume that maybe, just maybe, Scarab was unaware of what hammerspace was. Sure, the person writing the post knew what it was, but not Scarab himself, that was for sure. He just stared at everyone with a look of incredulity on his face. "Horror...movies?" He repeated. Probably some product of the human world, so nothing he should be too concerned about. It likely wasn't anything too different from the stuff at the Terminus theater.
Though, at the mention of DATS, Scarab's gaze seemed to harden in some shape or form. "If that's actually real, no wonder DATS wants to get rid of Digimon." ...Woefully unfamiliar with this, he was.
"Chainsaws are usually used to cut bushes and branches. Pretty nifty tools if I do say so myself. Though, I...uh. I've never been to a spa." The worm admitted. "Sounds neat, though."
“Uhm, Miss Polty… what’s a videogame?” Ebi was learning so many new words today! The Burgamon variant also giggled slightly at Polty’s comment of him being able to wield a gigantic hammer when he Digivolved. He didn’t even know what he was going to Digivolve into, since very few of his species ever lived long enough to reach Champion level. He was, however, somewhat of an aquatic Digimon, so him becoming a hammer-wielding Zudomon one day wasn’t too unlikely.
“Spas sound nice. Can we all go to a spa together?” The young burgeroid asked with quite the wholesome smile. “Chainsaws sound kinda scary… What’s a bike? And a MeTube? And DATS? Sharing and subscribing? Why is Mister Wormy so weird?” He asked with another curious head tilt, hearing the green Wormmon spout even more unknown words. Ebi didn’t know anything about any of this. He didn’t seem to worry too much about it either, as he soon turned to the blue Wormmon, gently poking his side. “Hey, Mister Scarab. Can we go to a spa?”

Ebi didn't even know what a video game was..? What kind of situation did poor Ebi grow up in? "Basically like.. An interactive movie!" Polty would explain, smiling down to Ebi. "Something fun made to either test your mental skills, or to let you pretend to be a character in a story, or even both in some cases! Here, lemme show ya-" Polty would take the time to take out a device... Was that a 3DS? It certainly looked a bit like a bootleg 3DS; being made in the Digital World, so that it would actually be able to work here. "See? This is an example of a device that you can play some types of video games, on!" She'd sit down next to Ebi, and turn on her game; a Legend of Zelda game, which she'd begin to idly goof around in, just so show Ebi what it was like.
As Wormmon described Leomon and Gazellemon, though... Polty would raise an eyebrow. "... Are you sure you weren't watching a Human World video, dude?" She'd question; beginning to wonder if Wormy was okay, to not be able to tell the difference. Of course, it didn't help that Polty was likely what you could call a 'humanboo'; being pretty savvy on human world concepts, so she might've been biased on that front.
As far as Ebi's additional questions and comments went, though... "Yeah, chainsaws can be scary; they're pretty loud, and you have to be careful when you use them. But sound aside, you just gotta treat em like a big knife; don't poke people with it, and you're fine!" She'd chirp, shrugging a bit. "MeTube is a site where people share videos of things with each other. DATS is basically police or guards in the Human World that are trying to keep us and the Digital World a secret from other humans. I dunno why Mister Wormy is weird, but I suppose he just is, and as for what bikes are..."
... Polty would briefly stand up, and would summon her bike from the Digi-struction device she had!
A silver motorcycle would form before her; sleek but sturdy-looking. "Here is my bike; a motorcycle! What do you guys think?" She'd ask them; glancing over to the other three. "This one right here's my pride and joy, I'd say! It was expensive as heck, but worth every bit!"
Wormy was confusing the little Ebi even more. The Worm King's antennae stick up when Ebi asks why he is weird.
"You don't know what MeTube is? It's a website where people talk about different things over and over again to get as much attention as possible. My Tamer likes watching videos of pretty women in tight clothing stretching. I think it's called, yo-guh."
Yes, add more confusing things that Ebi doesn't know about. Maybe Wormy really did need Dante supervising him. "DATS is a bunch of cool space ninjas that kick ass and lay down the law. They get to wear cool hats. I heard they closed down for a while, but the new DATS sounds good too."
Let's stick to Polty's explanations. She asks Wormy if he was watching a Human World video. "I'm pretty sure it was in the Digital World. Though, that would explain why it was on MeTube." Polty shows Ebi her video game system. Wormmon curiously watches on, noticing Link from Legend of Zelda. "Hey, that's the elf all those nerdy girls are obsessed with. Her hair is pretty."
As for what a bike is, Polty shows the Digimon her motorcycle. Wormmon's eyes widen as he looks at the sleek silver curves, but is thrown off by the face in the front. "Yo, that's a sweet ride. What's with the face? Is there a Digimon inside?"
Scarab has not been to a spa, but says it sounds neat. Ebi asks him if they can go to a spa. Wormmon is glad to see some interest in going to a spa. "Who's down for some spa time?!"
Post by Hisato and Bad Company on Nov 14, 2019 18:37:00 GMT
...Ebi was sheltered. That thought sort of just hit Scarab like a truck. Even he knew what a video game was, sorta, and he didn't even play those at all. Still, there were...a few misconceptions that had to be put to rest, in truth. Namely...
"...No, Wormmon. They're not ninjas, they're genuine cops that'll throw you in the slammer and slap an ankle monitor on you if you cause issues in the human world. Honestly, I can see where the divide comes from, but at the same time, they're trying to keep the other world safe, so...I can't fault them for it."
The worm let out a sigh. He didn't really expect to be talking about this over burgers, really, but Polty summoning a bike with a face on it? Scarab glanced towards it for a few moments, looking it over, before he uttered two words and two words only.
Polty took it upon herself to teach Ebi all about video games, and it was a good thing she actually happened to have a portable gaming system on her person, otherwise she wouldn’t get too far if she tried to explain it with words. The moment it was turned on and colorful game characters walked on the screen, it was all over; The kid flat out ignored the two Wormmon, and clung firmly to his kitty friend’s side, staring at her game screen with wide eyes. “Woah… It looks so cool!”
Perhaps if he was a little older, he would actually care more about the prospect of women training in tight clothing. And maybe if he was more political, he would care about the whole debate about DATS, whatever it actually was. He practically zoned out after the cool hats bit, focusing entirely on video games and nothing else. Today’s rotten youth, all they care about is video games, grumble grumble!
Afterwards, the Meicoomon also educated Ebi on what a motorcycle was, summoning hers out of thin air. The pink Burgamon variant looked bewildered at the peculiar vehicle, noticing the weird face on it only after Wormy had brought it up. “W-wait, there’s a Digimon inside? Nuuuuuu…” The poor kid shivered, running back to Scarab and hiding behind him all scared.

Polty couldn't help but gently laugh, at Ebi's enthusiasm over her game; grinning lopsidedly at the EbiBurgamon as he glued himself to her side. "Eheheh; Videogames are a great way to kill time, if you've got nothing else to do." She'd mention to the young 'mon; adjusting her position so that she could better show Ebi the screens as she played a little bit of her game. "The handheld device I've got here I picked up in Terminus; they're a bit spendy, but fun to have. The game itself, though, is from the Human World - though I paid for someone to bring it here to the Digital World for me; since my limbs and head falling off make it difficult to disguise myself as a human, sometimes."
As Wormy described what he thought DATS was, though... Polty couldn't help but make a face. Despite being a rookie, she was probably older than other digimon realized; and she was still pretty worldly, as well, and so... "... Didn't the old DATS do a lot of bad stuff, dude?" Polty questioned; raising an eyebrow at him. "New DATS is fine, from what I understand; but old DATS caused a lot of harm and grief for other digimon." She might be a dullahan; but Wormy, in her opinion, was starting to come off as a bit of a dullard...
As her bike came out, everyone had their own notions of it; Scarab seeming impressed by the bike, Wormmy inquisitive, and Ebi being, well, a bit nervous. "Nah; I think this bike was made with an Auto Pilot upgrade in mind? But that's a loooong ways off, I'd argue; and technically, I don't need an Auto Pilot anyways! So the face is just a nice decoration, for now." She'd idly pat the front of the bike, grinning a bit. "Buuuut, do you wanna know something cool I can do, with machinery?"
Wormy seemed to be in the minority when it came to his high opinion of DATS, or SUPER DATS in his words. Scarab mentions that they are genuine cops. Polty mentions that the old DATS caused a lot of harm to Digimon. Wormy responds with a confused look.
"Eh?! Really? That is surprising, because I got into all sorts of bad situations in the Human World, and they didn't give me any trouble. Yep, I've probably saved the city from rogue Digimon more times than DATS at this point, and rarely did I ever see any DATS agents doing their job. The new DATS sounds nice. I tried applying once, but they wouldn't take me. How am I going to get exclusive DATS swag now?!"
When Polty took out the video game, Ebi's attention focused in on the strange glowing device. The little bun head really is sheltered. The group's attention shifted to the motorcycle when Polty brought it out. Wormy asks about the face, and Ebi becomes afraid and hides behind Scarab. Polty explains how the bike was made with an Auto Pilot in mind.
"It's a cool bike. I sure don't wanna challenge that face to a starring contest."
Polty mentions something cool she can do with machinery.
"Fix computers? Oh, can you get games to download correctly? I bought a vampire game on Smoke (Steam) that did not work! Stupid, sexy vampire game, not letting me enjoy all the blood, gore, and jiggling."
Post by Hisato and Bad Company on Nov 17, 2019 23:54:14 GMT
As it turns out, bikes can bring out a number of different sides of people. This one in particular was rather peculiar as it held no resemblance to the first thing that people tend to think of when a bike is materialized in the Digital World, that being the mechanical steed of the numerous incarnations of the Demon Lord of Gluttony, Behemoth.
Which was why it struck out so much to Scarab! It looked unique! Still, he turned to give Ebi a pat on the head. "I don't think it's a digimon, but it can likely be ridden by Digimon." He explained to the little guy. It seems like he was taking up the role of looking out for the EbiBurgamon well.
Still, there was something else the cat could do. What was it? "...I'm watching." Scarab noted. What would the cat pull, huh?
“Humon world?” Great, even more terms that Ebi didn’t understand. Still, he was too distracted by the flashy video game at the time to question what any of that meant. And by the time a motorcycle with a creepy face on it appeared out of nowhere, he had kinda already forgotten everything about it. Thankfully, Polty was quick to clarify that the face was purely a cosmetic thing, while Scarab gave the frightened little boy a comforting headpat with his claw of a hand. “So, it’s not a Digimon? Okay… That’s a relief.”
The Frankenstein-esque cat then promised the group to show them something cool, a promise that made the little Burgamon’s dot-shaped eyes widen with anticipation. “I’d love to see something cool! No blood and gore, please. Blood and gore are bad… I dunno what jiggling has to do with anything. What kind of jiggle are you talking about, Mister Wormy?” He asked the green Wormmon, all wide-eyed and innocent.
Between Polty introducing him to video games, Wormy’s general debauchery and Scarab being Scarab, it was possible that Ebi was hanging around the worst possible crowd to shape his young, impressionable mind.
