    Aw... That last line sort of gets ya... Right *points* about here.
    Funny stuff at the breakfast able, what with the observations from the dog... And that slight jab at your long-running MopFam gag... Prawny will swoon at the sight/mention of Hilda... And all the tension, it's not good for this house of actors... Not good at all. Please post more, and help heal the growing rifts between all the bands of characters.

    Poor Rowlf....How hard it must have been for Kermit to point out the obvious that everyone else is avoiding. The tension was almost hilarious though with all the jokes and the waffle in Sam's eye and Pepe "I seventh it" and yeah. Good stuff all around!

    ...Dil, why is this the place to post a pointless post such as this? I mean, it's not like you're complimenting Lisa's amazing story, you're just sitting there running your fingers on the keyboard to be doing so. I mean, go post in your own thread if you want to whine about something, don't muddle up others threads with pointlessness.

    Uh Ryan... Isn't muddling up other's posts/threads with pointlessness what we usually call "muffining"?
    Anyway... Not sure I understand this comment, since people have been posting posts in the FanFiction forum... Isn't this very thread and other new stories such as Don't Tip the Driver examples of that?
    Eh...Just tryin' to keep the peace. *Heads back to dorms.

    That was great. I love how the tension from Kermit and Piggy just spilled over onto the others. That and the converstion between Beauregard and Rowlf was wonderful. I loved how you let him have some extra insight to the others. We never really hear much from Beau...the Muppet that is.

    Ooh, I'm liking it already. I've heard a lot of hype about the story, and the cheese, and the fact that Rowlf gets hurt so...now it's time for me to dive in and have a little read.

    Boy is he limber. Sorry. *giggles* I got images of him onstage, upside down, head in band pit...oh, never mind.

    Rowlf can always see why Kermit is stressed. That's why he's man's best friend...well...frog's good friend...well, frog's good dog...

    Capitalabraas! *new word* I love capitals! Adds a definate Piggy sense to the sentence.

    That always chills me.

    So does that...

    Ayieeeeeee! *has always wanted Jullia to be on Muppet Show*

    Rowlf, Rowlf, Rowlf!

    Oh! He folded his FACE! That is a GREAT discription of what he does!

    Exclaimation! Exclaimation! Exclaimation! *hugs Robin...thinks about Robin's Honor*

    Every day I fall further in love with the pig.

    Kermie...she really does...listen to the pig...

    Maybe from pent up exsasperation(sp?)

    *giggles* Nice description of Gonzo applause.

    *stiffles giggles*




    *is stunned, smacked, slapped, smothered and ricoheted*


    Oh Toga! This is such an awesome beginning! And now I have to finish it when I'll comment again, and if no one has posted between now and then...I appologuise for the double post.

    Ok, I'm here at the end of the story so far...and I've cried, laughed, and had at least obe stumble-catch moment.

    Rowlf attempting to play piano, while thinking about others, was perhaps the most touching scene I have read for a very long while. It hit every nerve and every sense from the feelings of the pain to the eyes which filled with tears.

    Piggy chasing Jack was hill-larious and letting Kermit down was valley-larious *new word, meaning opposite of hill-larious*

    Breakfast was hilarious, and I loved Rowlf's observations on everyone which matched up with his piano observations.

    Chapter Seven

    “I don’t get it,” Rizzo said.

    “It’s simple,” Gonzo said. “All I have to do is ride one of the blades of this ceiling fan while I whistle Dixie and juggle five rutabagas, four zucchini, three avocados, and two bananas.”

    “And a partridge in a pear tree?” Rizzo guessed.

    They were in a back room of the Muppet Theater, one of Gonzo’s favorite places to develop new stunts. He called it his stunt closet. Everyone else called it, one of those storage rooms with the random junk.

    “Help me think, Rizzo,” the weirdo said as he excitedly examined the floor-bound ceiling fan. “I’ve gotta make this absolutely harmless for everyone- except for me, of course.”

    “Ya know, buddy,” the rat said, “I don’t see why you’re freaking out so much about Rowlf.”

    “Because he’s my friend,” Gonzo said defensively. “And I hurt him.”

    “Yeah, so?” Rizzo said. “He’s fine. And besides, I’m your friend too, right? It’s not like you’ve never hurt me with your stunts.” He rubbed his tail. “I’m still sore from dat flaming wire act.”

    “That’s different,” Gonzo said. “You’re my performance rat-in-arms. You’re supposed to get hurt. That’s called sharing the glory.”

    “Yeah but what if I don’t want the glory?” Rizzo said. “I mean if you want someone in arms, why not choose Pepe? He’s got six of ‘em.”

    “He lacks the coordination,” Gonzo said. “Now come on, Rizzo, would you concentrate? This is serious!”

    “It’s serious?” Rizzo said. “Good, ‘cause the jokes are dyin’ like flies and the frog’s not here to eat ‘em.”

    Rizzo!” Gonzo sighed and turned back to the fan. He hesitated, then looked at his friend. “How could you still be sore from the flaming wire act? That was over a year ago.”

    Rizzo grinned. “Well I’m not, but dat’s not what I tell da masseuse,” he said slyly.

    “I told you she’s good looking!” Gonzo grinned. “Now aren’t ya glad I recommended her?”

    “Uh huh, but I’ll be even more glad if ya let me eat the leftovers of this stunt.”

    Gonzo sighed. “Silly me,” he said. “For once, I thought you were thinking of something other than food.”

    “Hey, a guy’s gotta keep his priorities straight!”

    Gonzo shook his head. “Cute,” he said. “Cute priorities.”

    Rizzo waited for a moment. “So… about those leftovers?”

    Gonzo held the rat’s gaze for a moment, just to make him squirm. He shrugged. “Yeah, sure, I guess,” he said.

    “YES! THANK YOU!” Rizzo ran out the door in celebration.

    “But not until AFTER the stunt!” Gonzo called after him. He shook his head and sighed. “Well that was helpful,” he grumbled.

    Kermit studied the paper work, trying to figure out the next show’s lineup. In the back of his mind, he tried to convince himself that he wasn’t listening for anything, but he knew he was. He was listening for the sound of Rowlf’s piano, and he wasn’t sure whether or not he wanted to hear it. On the one hand, the theater would seem empty without it; Rowlf was always practicing. It was part of who he was, and Kermit hated to think that his friend was cut off from something so essential to him. On the other hand, if Rowlf played in spite of his broken wrists, then he could hurt himself even worse, and Kermit certainly didn’t want that, either.

    He did not hear Rowlf’s piano. He did hear Fozzie’s approaching feet. He turned. “Oh hey Fozzie,” he said, waving his friend over.

    “Hiya Kermit,” Fozzie said.

    “Hey listen, I’ve been meaning to ask you,” Kermit said, “How did your monologue go last night?”

    “Um, well…” Fozzie squirmed and took his hat off. “It didn’t, Kermit,” he said solemnly.

    Kermit did a double take. “What?”

    The bear squirmed. “I… I cancelled it,” he said.

    Kermit stared. “Oh,” he said, “Well- why?”

    “Well the show was running long,” Fozzie explained. Kermit nodded. “And I… I wasn’t ready.”

    Kermit tilted his head and lightly scrunched his face. “Fozzie,” he said, “You’re selling yourself short.”

    Fozzie gestured with his hat. “Well Kermit, I’m not exactly the tallest bear…”

    Kermit chuckled, then shook his head. “No Fozzie, I mean you’re not giving yourself enough credit. You did that monologue for me yesterday afternoon; you had it nailed!”

    Fozzie wrung his hat in his hands. “But- I was just so nervous last night, Kermit… Besides, there wasn’t enough time.”

    Kermit nodded understandingly. “That’s okay, Fozzie,” he said. “We’ll put you in for next week, how’s that?”

    “Um- Well- okay,” Fozzie said.

    “Because that’s a great monologue. I’d hate to cut it completely,” Kermit said as he wrote something in on the schedule.

    “But- but what about the song you and I are doing?” Fozzie said.

    “What about it?” Kermit said.

    “Well if I’m doing the monologue…”

    “You’ll do both,” Kermit said simply.

    Fozzie stared at him. “Both?” He fumbled his hat back on.

    “Sure, it’ll be great!” Kermit said.

    “HEY BOSS! YOU’D BETTER GET OVER HERE!” Scooter called frantically.

    “Oh boy. Excuse me, Fozzie,” Kermit said.

    Fozzie watched him walk away, and then sighed miserably. “This is gonna be a long week.”

    Yaey for new chapter... Love the planning for Gonzo's next act. Pepe has six arms? Thought he only had four. You might want to check that. Very touching internal rationalizing about Kermit wanting or not wanting to hear Rowlf at the piano. Nice scene with Kermit and Fozzie.
    But what is it Scooter's calling Kermit over for? *Worried.

    More please!

    <shrug> There's a song on Muppet Central Radio- forget which one- But the singer says to put your hands together, and Pepe says, "I have six of them, hokay?" So, that's where I got six from...

    Glad you liked it, Ed! And- incidently- do you happen to know how tall Fozzie is/would be from ears to feet? Just something that crossed my mind in writing this chapter... I'm curious.
  15. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    OK, thanks for the answers... Guess I'm just going by the figures I have since I can't rully do much with pictures or onscreen appearances.
    In figure form, Fozzie's a full head taller than Kermit, he's almost as tall as the figure of Piggy, a smidge shorter than the figure of Sam the Eagle.
    Hope that puts things in reference for whatever you're scheming... Still two chapters left before you tie you other conspirator's current count.

    Ah! A new chapter! And what better way to welcome it in but with a detailed review!

    What a lovely opening.


    *records that for future use*

    OH!!! I have SUCH a soft spot for Gonzo's pain!! It's such a rare occurence! And it just hurts!! *hugs something*

    HA! Sure he lacks the coordination Gonzo...Sure...

    *tosses Gonzo Camilla helmet*

    Hehe, the old jokes just won't die, will they?
    Death: TELL ME ABOUT IT.
    What are you doing here?

    Statler: It went alright.
    Waldorf: Right out the door!
    Sheesh, not you guys too...

    ...Alas poor rim, I knew him well.

    Statler: You know what, I do think he had it nailed.
    Waldorf: Really? Why's that?
    Statler: Well he certainly had the nail in my coffin!
    Both: Do ho ho ho!

    OOH!! *bounces*

    Uch, you're not kidding Kerm. Oh well, at least we have this lovely story to keep us company.

    Awesome job Lisa!! Can't wait for more!!

    I thought I was going to be able to get the first detailed reveiw on this chapter, but I was scooped by a prawn...how rude...

    Oh, it's simple, see I got an e-mail saying there was an update and I thought I could get here and...oh, wait, that was part of the story not a question for me. Do go on.

    Oh! And the great G agrees with me! Wait, that's part of the story too. Sorry.

    Oh! Simple indeed! Like the rutabagas reference.

    *giggle* Good guess.

    I like that. It's simple, but it shows the culture of the Muppets and how one place can mean so many different things.

    Or mayhaps sharing the Gory???

    Good thinking Rizzo.

    Oh, logical.

    Yum...sounds delicious...

    THE LINE! Wait...THE PHRASE! I love how you incorperate the "Cute, Cute whatever" into each story.

    Awww! I love when feet approach!

    Cute. Cute ittalics.

    He is so good at controlling panic...

    At the Muppet Theatre? It always is...
