The Tick walked up to a certain table in the park and gazed at it. It hadn't been of use to anyone. Even he hadn't sat there in a few weeks.

Tick looked at the crude wooden figure in his hand and appeared to be listening. The figure made no noise, except for a tiny squeak at what should probably be called his left shoulder. "You're right, Little Wooden Boy," Tick said.

With his free arm, Tick picked up the table and walked off.

[OOC: Yes, this is the end of C.R.A.C.K. for the foreseeable future. Nobody was using it for its original purpose (assisting those in need and, actually, the school security officer completely trumped that purpose and hit a home run with the Safe Walk program) and its secondary purpose (serve as a place for me to go crazy with Tick thwarting stuff) hasn't received any play recently and won't in the near future. We didn't even get Captain Emo in on it!

Basically, nobody including me was using it, so it's going away. The comm will remain here, but I will be asking Krycek to take it off the Friending List. It's been a blast for the brief time C.R.A.C.K. has been around!]

There was a note on the table in the park HQ. It read:

Hello, Team,

Three things of note today. First, the duck pond should be safe once more. Second, we have communicators! In a box storage locker under the table in the Sub-Basement, you will find PEZ dispensers. They are loaded with all sorts of technology that will let you speak wirelessly to each other wherever you are! Plus, they have PEZ in there! Keen!

Finally, there have been reports of some kind of critter called Snark Beasts. Nobody knows where they are or what they do or even what they look like, but they've been viciously attacked by snark and egads! it hurt! Please keep an eye out for such animals.

-The Tick!

If one were to look under the table, they would find a PEZ dispenser half-filled with PEZ, the other half filled with various electronic bits and wires. They're not dangerous or anything. They just don't do anything. Other than dispense PEZ, that is. Still, feel free to take one. There are a bunch of characters on them.

[OOC: Snark Beasts are not currently in FH canon. As C.R.A.C.K. is an unofficial-but-authorized community, their inclusion here does not officially bring them into the game. However. If you have fun with it and decide to spot one in Town... Well, who knows? Also, we have no clue what they look like. Idea from janet_fraiser.]

The Tick posts a note to the table in the park HQ.

Hello, team! I've been told that there is a situation with certain ducks at the pond. Most should be perfectly normal, law-abiding ducks. There are a couple bad seeds in the bunch, though, and they've tasted human flesh! I'm requesting that if you go to the pond today, you take special care until I report that it's safe!

-The Tick

The Tick then retrieved a big net from under the table the HQ's Sub-Basement Weapons Storage Facility and walked over to the pond with determination on his face. "SPOOOOOOOON!"

[OOC: I suck and never got around to contacting the people who signed up most recently. But Rogue, Kitty, Ivanova, and Shane are all on the list. Feel free to talk at the table HQ, save people, or abuse the power that comes with a badge, even if the badge technically gives you absolutely no authority.]

On the table in the park front of the HQ, there is a note. It reads:


If you have the time, please make sure to feed the ducks in the pond by the HQ. There aren't nearly enough shifty individuals feeding them during clandestine meetings so they need all the help they can get.

If a duck tries to mug you, don't be afraid. It's only a duck, after all. What can it do to you?

-The Tick

Hello, team! C.R.A.C.K. has a case! Professor Zaphod Beeblebrox has reported various missing body parts, including one head and one arm. They are back in his possession (and hopefully reattached), but that doesn't change the fact that we apparently have a body-part thief in Town.

I have to collect some more information from Professor Beeblebrox, but after that we'll be ready to investigate. Anybody [OOC: Including the people who signed up the other day but never got in contact with, which I apologize for] please organize here.

[OOC: We can start some of this tonight, but until I find out the actual scope of this plot, I'm assuming most of it will happen tomorrow because I have way too much to do tonight.

ETA: This apparently happened to Zaphod the other night at Spike's Pub, by the way, in case that interests anyone for any reason...]

Hello, team! This is The Tick! I've worked on getting our current roster set! 2ls_in_oneill has been recruiting more heroes for our team, strengthening our forces so we can help as many people as possible, so this is definitely not a final list!

If you have some free time during your day, by all means, stop by the table in the park our HQ and listen carefully for screaming man the phones!

I am wearing is the official C.R.A.C.K. badge. Please steal this icon take one and feel free to throw it on a personalized icon for your character wear it whenever you're on C.R.A.C.K. business. This means no wearing it on campus, though unless you're OOC or otherwise don't care if people see you wearing it.

Oh, and if you have a keen superhero name you want to use or want to improve upon your description in the user info, just let me know!

I look forward to working with all of you!

[Tick has removed the sign-up sheet from the table in the park HQ. It will appear in a new post at some point in the future when there are more people who want to join but can't conveniently get to Tick. The following is a mere memory in the minds of those who saw it.]

If you have not been invited to join C.R.A.C.K. but would like to help people in your spare time, please sign in here at C.R.A.C.K. Table in the Park HQ. Kindly provide your name, why you want to help people, and what you would bring to the team!

Tick is sitting in the Temporary C.R.A.C.K. HQ (a bench in the middle of the park), pushing fandomhighcrack business cards on passersby.

The Superhero is In.

I emailed the FH mods to get clearance for C.R.A.C.K. since, obviously, we could have a significant impact on big events like zombie or werewolf attacks. Or, say, a 50 ft tall plotypus rampage.

We have been approved (Yay, we get to do stuff!) with one stipulation: nothing on campus. There's a No Vigilante rule in effect on campus and, IC, Rover has that area covered anyway. (Okay, two stipulations if you count "follow the game's rules" as one. Rules of Chronofluidity, Canon, etc all count... Unless, of course, we have to do something that runs in direct opposition to all of that. Who wants to fall into a time warp?)

We do have permission to go crazy anywhere else, though. Fandom Town? The Door-to-Door Salesman of Heroism is knocking at your door. New locations? Plotting Zoo, keep your animals in check!

I'll officially announce C.R.A.C.K. tomorrow (Wednesday, October 12) so I have a little time to write a good post and flesh out the user info a bit (and maybe, just maybe, make a logo for iconning purposes, but if anyone else beats me to it, that's fine by me!). If anybody wants to come up with a superhero name before this goes public, now's the time.

I look forward to having weird-ass adventures with all of you.

Hello, Heroes of Fandom High! You may have noticed that some pretty hairy stuff happens here. But there are people who can attack that hair with shears of righteousness! There are barbers who will stand up to this kind of malarky! They are heroes.

We are heroes.

As a member of The Coalition of Resilient Avengers Cornering Knaves, you would be expected to help when people need it! That's what heroes do! You would sign in whenever you had Time for Justice and respond to any calls for help in Fandom Town or on the Fandom High Campus!

C.R.A.C.K. is not officially allied with Fandom High or the Fandom Town Police Force. Superheroing is best provided in lawful vigilante form. But, egads, don't break any Fandom High rules in the name of Justice! That makes you no better than the criminals!

Superpowers not required! Just a devotion to Justice and/or Helping People!

If you received this invitation, please indicate if you would like to be on the C.R.A.C.K. team!

For Justice,
The Tick

[OOC: I see this as blatantly cribbing from the Clinic. Somebody post when you're at the C.R.A.C.K. HQ (feel free to talk excessively as you're hanging around, waiting for trouble) and if somebody posts for help... help them.

There is no C.R.A.C.K. HQ yet. Until we establish one, it'll probably be in his classroom or a Common Room in the Dorms.

Tick has only sent this to Defenders of Justice that he knows. There are other people Captain Emo he doesn't know who should probably get this. Please feel free to recruit people you know.

If you accept all of this, go ahead and join the comm.]
