Can we have a Scraplootas thread for old time’s sake?

I finally got around to finishing "Blue Visits Boris", now entitled "Two Tribes: A Grotocracy Story". In it, Blue finds herself caught in the middle of bitter tensions between the two largest factions in Titanopolis. Tasked with avoiding full-blown civil war, she must use her wits, her courage, and her sheer determination to keep the peace, and to stop all the mucking about once and for all.

I tried attaching it as a PDF here, but it didn't work for some reason.

I'll not pretend this is a year in the making, as it wasn't. I'm working on board a ship at the moment, and writing this comfortably occupied the six hours a day that I'm not working or sleeping. For a week at least. I know it'll be TL;DR for a lot of people, but that's fine. If even one guy reads and enjoys it, that's good enough for me, and I know there are still a lot of Scraplootas fans around. And for anyone who does bother to read it, any feedback at all would be appreciated, good or bad.

Regarding the story itself, it had always disappointed me that none of the Scraploota tales ever really covered the grotocracy, or the rivalry between the two arms. So I decided to write it myself, and this is the (slightly longer than expected) result. It contains a few new characters, a few expanded locations, and a few questionable attempts at humour.

So, enjoy. Or don't. It's not like I can tell you what to do.

Oh, I should note that it's optimised for viewing two pages to a screen, so you'd be better off downloading it rather than reading it on scribd.

That, and the ebook formats might be a bit wonky. Still readable though.

Their humor was described as pretty Pratchett/Douglas Adams, such as how the Grotocracy exists due to a bunch of grots setting up shop inside a daemon possessed Chaos Titan. The daemon, unable to drive the little orkoids insane or possess them or any of his usual tricks did the next best evil thing he could: he turned them all into bureaucrats. Thus, the grotocracy was born.

Then there's other things like Derknitt, the ork who keeps the Chaos Titan and the rest of the Scraplootas orky by doing things like finding areas where the possessed titan has grown wailing faces on its walls and yelling right back at them until they go away.

Or Threegrot, the weirdboy as weird as three grots who is in no way three weirdgrots stacked on top of one another in an overcoat.

I think it varies from board to board, but you make a good point. I doubt many people would be so dedicated about something or like something so much that they'd eventually find their way to a website just for discussing it. It's a nerdy thing, and nerdy people are more often than not really clever.

I imagine on /tg/ especially you end up surrounded by people who discuss universes and compare lore and write their own ideas and stories and get exposed to a lot of written work. A lot of us tend to spend a lot of time figuring how everything works and fits together, and that requires some imagination. I want to be a writer, and I imagine a few other fa/tg/uys feel the same.

So yeah, in short, most people on 4chan are nerds, and most nerds are clever and crafty people who are smart at what they're smart at.

>> No.33525744

Pretty much. Ok, so /b/ is objectively shit, but people say boards like /sp/ and /v/ are shit, and they really aren't. There are just a lot more voices, so the funny and clever stuff is sometimes a bit less obvious on the surface. There have been so many times that I've randomly burst out laughing thinking about that one image, or that post somebody made, which has probably been forgotten even by the guy who posted it by now.

One that got me recently was looking at a picture of a spine. Out of nowhere, my brain randomly jumped to TOBLEROOOOOONE. It's such a stupid thing, but it's also funny as hell.

Plus, and it's the thing I like most of all, everything is anonymous. Nobody's putting a name to any of the Scraplootas stories, for example. It's just done by a bunch of guys, who have probably never directly talked to each other outside of these threads. It's creating for the sake of creating, rather than trying feeding an ego or somebody's pockets.

It's anarchic, but it works. It's also why I absolutely hate the other places on the internet like Reddit, where creations are all the pet projects of individuals and everyone circlejerks about the people making things instead of the thing itself. I'm not expressing myself very well, but I think you get the idea.

The problem with all that is that as perfect as the anarchic order is, if you miss out you miss out. You can't really explain it properly to someone who wasn't there. 1d4chan is a great help, but it can be outdated and miss many newer things.

It's beautiful, it's wonderful, it's inane, it's everything you said, but there's no real permanence to any of it (not that you want to keep half of it anyway).

A little from column A, a little from column B. Professional writing is a lot different than a few short stories for internet folks, and I find I don't do as well as a writer without being in the right mood.

That is how the brain works. Your frontal lobe is both your short term memory and your active processing memory. Most of the time the largest part of your brain, which is pretty much the rest of it, is processing information without you realizing it.

She's there to be the introduction to the craziness of the Scraplootas, and an excuse for things to be explained. She's the anchor holding everything in place.

The lewdness has to be properly done. I''ve read enough great fantasy novels with a bit of innuendo and near-smut here and there to realize that sometimes, character will do what characters will do.

But personally, I don't think Blue would ever have sex with someone. She wouldn't understand it, it's not proper Orky, and she'd probably krump some jerk who was seemingly obsessed with grabbing her squishy bits. She probably wouldn't even form a friendship with anyone who wasn't an Ork or a grot - and if she did, it'd be more an antagonistic friendship than any deep relationship. I still laugh at my own headcanons for that sort of friendship.

Anyway, I found the story good and imaginative and worth reading. I would have enjoyed it as much with Blue as without.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. I pretty much agree with everything you just said there, regarding what Blue would think about anything sexual. It just wouldn't make sense to her, it's not part of her thinking, and it's not part of Orky society.

Still, nothing can stop someone else from shoehorning it in if they feel like it.

On a side note that I didn't mention earlier, HOLY SHIT writing orky speak gets irritating after a while. It's so much more difficult than you'd think. It's why I pretty much gave up with characters like Tinybones. It's okay in small doses, but having to do a full conversation with it is just maddening.

SHUDDAP OI GOT FAT FINGERS AN' A TOINY KEYBOARD AN' IT AIN'T EVEN GOT RED PAINT ONNIT.

Here's what I've noodled out so far in the months since I last posted about Scraplootas.
What is a Threegrot? What does it do? How does it come about? Moreover, /why/ is a Threegrot?
These are all excellent questions, and Mad Dok Gitstitcha would like to answer all of them. Or at least, he was going to try to. He had the bone saw and the Annisfetik knock out sandbag and giddy laughter all ready and everything. That trench coat would bare its juicy inner secrets yet.
But of course the problem remained catching Threegrot unawares. The Mad Dok couldn't explain it, but for some reason that git had eyes out of the back of his head and off to the side too. Probably a weirdboy thing. They did that. Whenever he got within ten feet of Threegrot, the git scampered. Practically grew two additional sets of legs the git moved so quick. Whatever. Really the hunt was part of the thrill for Gitstitcha. Before his tribe of Feral Orks had been picked up by the Scraplootas. There was a strange something going on, a mutation had stopped squigs from sprouting so the Orks were forced to hunt. And he was the butcher. Not that his tribe didn't eat all of their prey, bones and all, but there was something that required a bit of formality to all of it. It was kind of the same reason he fashioned himself a nice apron of crudely stitched together hide (made of of gits, naturally). It was as instinctive as putting together a shoota from scrap metal that was lying around. Butchering was practical too. You had to figure out how to make sure the bigger nobs got their bigger shares after all.
Carving up meat one way or the other was the same for Gitstitcha. He just patched it all back up when he was done nowadays instead of shoving it in his mouth.

I like what you got so far, especially the humor with Threegrot.

As I know little about the background of Scraplootas, I wanna ask - are there multiple clans among them, are they just sort of their own clanless organization? Could there be a Deathskull obsessed with looting the best bits from inside Boris?

>> No.33528828

It took the Mad Dok the good part of the month to finally catch up to Threegrot, probably because Threegrot was sick of being chased around, probably not because of Gitsticha's cunnin', but Gitstitcha wouldn't hear a word of it if you said something. Mostly because you'd be speaking in some human tongue and Orks don't /actually/ speak in a hooligan English accent it's a translation conv--
The Mad Dok realized that despite all the experimentation he did on himself and everyone else that he could get his hands on, he definitely did not want to experiment or investigate Threegrot. Threegrot was all wavy and shaky, but that was normal Threegrot. Because Threegrot was just a weirdboy with the power of three weirdgrots. And that was it. These were not implanted thoughts by Threegrot. Mad Dok Gitstitcha came up with them himself. Oh, and make Threegrot your assistant.

What is a Daemoncore? What does it do? How does it come about? Moreover, why is a Daemoncore?
These are all excellent questions, and Mad Dok Gitstitcha would like to answer them with help from his assistant, Threegrot. From what he could tell through visual observation, it was a dodecahedron, a twenty sided regular shape made all of triangles covered in weirdsquigs. Except it had twenty one sides.
No matter how Gitstitcha counted or looked at it or marked off the sides, he always counted one extra. Also covered in weirdsquigs. Like there was something wrong with how the Daemoncore interacted with reality. Reality kept trying to force it into a certain shape, and the Daemoncore did its best to have a little rebellion to declare that it wasn't a part of reality's system. Other than that, it was cloudy and flashy on the inside, like there was a perpetual storm in there. And it spoke with a booming voice. If you asked the Mad Dok to describe it, it was a right flashy voice that sort of barged into your brain without knocking on your ears first. It was also usually quite demanding.
I DARE SAY YOU OLD POMPOUS ORK, ARE YOU BACK AGAIN FOR ANOTHER GO AT IT? I SWEAR YOU SHANT GET ANOTHER WORD OUT OF--OH BY KHORNE STOP THE LICKINGAAHH thought Mad Dok as he got closer to the daemoncore. Mentioned previously, it was covered in glowing weirdsquigs, but that was explained. The weirdsquigs regulated the Daemoncore's temperment, reducing the amount of mischief it could get up to. Otherwise they'd have constantly screaming walls and whispering dakka and weirdgrots standing on each other's shoulders hoping they could pass for an actual weirdboy.
"Oi, Threegrot," Gitstitcha said, "Quit whistlin', it bothers mah finkin'."

Anyway, something about the weirdsquigs' saliva sedated the Daemoncore, and because he broke a bonesaw choppa getting nowhere with the Daemoncore and it didn't quite seem to have applicable anatomy to saw off anyway, Gitstitcha was happy to simply pester the thing with questions. He fed the weirdsquigs and cleaned up their super dense and boring looking gray waste that made sensors in Boris click violently.
WHY DO YOU ANNOY ME WITH THESE QUESTIONS, ORK? WHAT PURPOSE DO THEY HAVE?
"I'm doin' research fer da sake of prosp- prosper- prospar-"
PROSPERITY?
"Yeah, dat one. Now, who wuz ya daddy?"
BUT DO YOU NOT THINK IT STRANGE THAT YOU ARE COMPELLED TO ACT IN THIS WAY? WHY ARE YOU NOT ON THE BATTLEFIELD, ORK? WHY ARE YOU NOT TENDING TO YOUR WOUNDED?
The Mad Dok frowned and scratched his head. Who was doing the Syko- Psych- Psykee- head scratching thing. Getting to the brains without using a proper choppa and only just words.
PSYCHOANALYSIS YOU MEAN?
"Oi, dat's da one. Sykoanaling. Who was doing dat 'ere, da Mad Dok, or da Daemoncore git?" He knocked the Daemoncore about with his broken bonesaw, causing several Weirdsquigs to relieve themselves.
There was the sound of a static screech in Gitstitcha's mind. Threegrot swayed even harder than he usually did.
OKAY NO MORE. WHAT DO YOU WANT THIS TIME, ORK.
"Oi jus got sum kwestshuns. Now, who wuz yur daddy?"
I WAS FORGED IN THE INFINITE ROILING HELL THAT IS THE ENDLESS BOWELS OF THE WARP. I AM AN MANIFESTATION OF THE BLOOD GOD'S INFINITE RAGE AND BLOOD THIRST GIVEN FORM.

STOP IT.
The Mad Dok stopped tickling the weirdsquigs and motioned for Threegrot to do the same. Gitstitcha did not see multiple additional arms retreating back into Threegrot's trench.
"Okay. So youse gotta pretty rough choildhood. I fink."

The thing about stealing away Blue is that that's Snekkit's thing. He steals Blue from Zizzbitz, so the Deathskull would be kinda redundant.
But I should note that there's still plenty of room for antagonists and gits all throughout the Scraplootas. There's definitely spies and double agents for other Ork groups out to take down the biggest and baddest Orks in the sector.

>>33529218
The Grotocracy is the most powerful thing inside Boris outside of Boris the Ork. It's hard to exactly pin down how powerful exactly the Grotocracy is because the Grotocracy immediately folds and makes way for any nob that comes investigating. They could potentially hold an uprising, but they like their status quo as it is. No telling what the nobs would do if they found out the grots were organized.

Personally I'd rather that she be marked by the Grotocracy as someone who was never to be targeted for anything ever, and they do their own bit to get her out of trouble if need be. If Blue bites in a Grotocracy sponsored activity. Zizzbitz would start asking Questions, and that would be No Good At All. It's never good when random words are capitalized in a sentence.

Of course even if she did get caught up in the politics (which would probably bore her because it's machinery she can't actually tinker with since it's all thoughts and words) she wouldn't end up on top due to writer's fiat. I don't like Blue with that much power, not to say she doesn't already have a lot of power as Zizzbitz's personal grot, but it makes her more than just Blue, which I feel is a step in the wrong direction. Da Blue Grot isn't really supposed to be a roleplaying character, more of a Saturday Morning Cartoon character. All of the Scraplootas are. They need a default that they always snap back to at the end of the episode. Their environments can and will change, but they themselves stay the same.

Of course, I'm just one writefaggrot. Other ones might think differently.

CON'T.

Far from the containment chamber that was the daemoncore's holding cell, Boris the Ork shuddered himself out of a fitful sleep. The bridge grots around him eyed each other nervously. This soon before a major engagement? It was a bad omen. Something that could not be fixed by dressing up with those funny long eared headbands and hopping about. The last time this happened, they ran into the Gargaunt that almost got Boris good.
Boris groaned and then thumped his chest. The Titan around him imitated the motion with a long drawn out metallic crunch, rattling everyone in and around Boris to the bone.
"Some git finda pink squig. Two pink squigs. Da chewable uns. Oi fink its 'eartburn." Suits him right for eating so many greased fried squigs before battle.
A select few grots pulled off their headbands and ripped off the bits of rags that they stuck on ther butts in a ball and scampered off. The other ones prepared the bucket of water that was necessary to down pink squigs. They were too chalky otherwise. Where was the Mad Dok in all of this? He should have been supervising. Not that the grots didn't do all of the work themselves, just well, it was good form to have nobs heading all of the projects. Grots milling about with a purpose was always suspicious in the mind of any alert enough Ork. Wasn't proppa Orky, grots doing things with out orders.
The intercom did its chirpy thing. It was looted from the communications of a Warhawk VI that the Chaos marines used to own, and for some reason it developed a weird chirp after it was installed, and it limited messages to roughly twenty eight words, give or take. It was probably some twit's fault that it did that. Some git must have found it funny.
"Oi, Boris, wat da zog wuz all dat den? Somfin 'appen?" It was Urtylug, being a good Kaptin. Of course, you'd definitely want to check up on your biggest boy if he was the size of a thousand or so of your other boyz, give or take a few grots.

"I fink I'm fine, Warb-Kaptin. Jus a pinch uv 'eartburn. Can ya find da Mad Dok's head fer me?"
There were a few things that the Mad Dok was not allowed to do on Urtylug's orders. One of them was to come within a hallway of Boris's command bridge, at least with his body. Gitstitcha was free to make check ups on Boris in his reduced squig leg form. He was held up by grots and then passed around like some weird religious bauble, inspecting the Ork that now hasn't sat down or gotten out of his control harness mechanism in several years. Boris was remarkable in that sense. Perhaps it was the Warp-interacting-with-the-Waugh weirdness that created much of the Scraplootas' oddities that gave him the ability to continuously pilot the Titan. It was hard to say if Boris slept standing because the Titan was always standing or if the Titan was always standing because Boris slept that way. Causality had broken off at some point, not to say it wasn't in a casual relationship already with the Scraplootas. Boris showed no otherwise signs of slowing or wear or tear. It truly was as if the Titan was him and he was the Titan, though how much crossover there really was was a question that Mad Dok was forbidden from finding out, as most of his methods involved amputating and reattaching limbs or setting things on fire.

>> No.33531576

>>33531561

...Well in this case the Daemoncore looked like it was already burning on the inside already, so it wasn't technically setting things on fire, right?
Gitstitcha knew about metaphors and figures of speech and all, but he had a hard time figuring out which ones were supposed to be literal and which ones were supposed to be figurative. As did most of the Orks. For this one at least, he hazarded that it had to be literal. Torture went hand in hand with interrogation after all. Putting someone in the hot seat had to be a real thing that hoomie gits especially did to their interrogatees. The trick was to get the seat hot enough without killing the weirdsquigs. Even at his worse the Mad Dok knew better than to test his chances with the unbridled Daemoncore.
He eventually decided to just heat up the entire containment chamber. Threegrot was looking awfully warm in his trench coat now too, and was more likely to take it off, an added bonus.
I DON'T KNOW IF I EVER KNEW MY MOTHER, REALLY. SHE WAS SO COLD, IF YOU COULD IMAGINE. DISTANT TOO. ALWAYS TELLING ME I WASN'T A BIG ENOUGH ABOMINATION AND I WOULD NEVER SUCCEED AS A CORE LIKE MY BROTHERS ALL HAD DONE.
Gitstitcha imagined a sound not unlike the rapid deflating of a large wet tire. The hot seat was working.
DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THEY USED TO BULLY ME IN SCHOOL BECAUSE I WAS ONLY ABLE TO MANIFEST AS A DODECAHEDRON? NOT EVEN A PRIME NUMBER OF SIDES! MY TEACHERS TOLD ME I WASN'T APPLYING MYSELF. THAT I'D STAY IN THE WARP UNUSED, MY RAGE UNSPENT, MY BLOOD THIRST UNANSWERED. HA! I SHOWED THEM.
The Mad Dok was scribbling notes as fast has he could, meaning that he was scribbling on a piece of paper and one of the ubiquitous grots next to him was carefully writing everything down to be dictated to the Mad Dok the next time it was necessary.

>> No.33535991

Well this is nice to wake up to.

My opinion on the matter is that Blue can have a reasonably active sex life, as long as it's mostly off screen. Why? Because it's muckin' about to the Orks, and it really doesn't work with the Saturday Morning Cartoon aesthetic.

I'm not saying that we should get into graphic detail and fetishize the girl, but I'm also not saying that it's completely out of parts to assume that she does have needs.
Your daughteru feels the same lust that other Tau of her age do, but instead of the greater good, she's surrounded by asexual fungi bros and a lot of scrap metal. Of course she's going to build something and take the matter into her own hands.

Does this mean that we need more fapfic? Up to you. I'm probably not going to write anymore fapfic, and I would certainly not like it if the majority of stories written about Blue from now on are fapfic or an excuse for fapfic.

Personally, I agree with >>33527919 back here. Seriously, why'd the sex talk come up again when we'd already talked about it?

Ah well. To throw my own two cents in, even if she does have urges (assuming they get triggered by anything in the first place), would she even know what to associate them with? She's been raised Orky and learned to have fun in a pretty Orky way. She might try to go out and have a fight, or invent a new machine, or have a race. She might even just sleep and wait for the feeling to go away, like Boris in the story described. Who says she'd ever think to turn to shlicking or sex? I think you'd need someone about who's not an Ork to explain something like that to her to have that happen, and she has bad memories about her earlier Tau life and I doubt a humie or a pointy-eared git would be there to explain it to her, or in the case of the latter, would explain it to her if they were there. (Knowing us humies, a humie would try to just make a move and Blue would krump them for being a git. And I'd laugh.)

Even then, I just don't think a fapfic with Blue would really...work. Does that make any sense? It just doesn't fit in my mind to have it happen. Maybe I'm a bit of a prude, yeah, but this is probably one thing that has managed to stay pure for me.

I read the story and downloaded it. I loved it. The sixty second market was especially fun, and the Shootists and Choppists were both unique and funny. Blue behaved proper Orky, but had some quirks and a slightly more think-y bent that reminded you she wasn't just a grot.

One thing I noticed between the Two Tribes story and the one Writefaggrot is currently working on is an inconsistency on the physical condition of Boris' squishy bits.

In Two Tribes he's described as emancipated with a lot of physical deterioration happening, but in that other story he sounds like he's still in pretty OK shape.

Personally I'm just going to chalk this one up to before and after Gitsticha joined and the difference he made, but I felt it was worth pointing out.

>> No.33567441

>>33566734
Personally, I think it makes more sense for him to be pretty fucked, body wise. It further emphasises the fact he has actually become the Titan, as he's now all machine and pretty much not a real ork any more. Still, they're all stories made up by different people, inconsistencies are to be expected.

Plus, it makes for a more interesting concept, I feel, rather than just an Ork in a chair.

I'll probably update again on the weekend/next time I see a Scraplootas thread. My weeks are far too hectic this time of year.

I'll be honest with you guys, I don't know too much about Titan pilots. I assumed they stood up all the time so they could make the Titan walk while they walked, like a Jaeger pilot from Pacific Rim only even more enormous. The idea of standing for years was added for a touch of Chaos-y weirdness to Boris's squishy bits. Other than that, I had him as this: >>33570150
A regular looking Ork that was hooked up to the Titan machinery. I didn't think of him as thin and withered. However, he could be still, since all I say is that he's standing and he can't eat too many greased fried squigs.

However I like >>33570914
A lot more. Since Boris is the Titan and the squishy bits and the squishy bits reflect the Titan which reflects the squishy bits in every way, why doesn't the inside of Boris' squishy bits reflect the inside of Boris the Titan? If you were to crack open Boris's skull, you would probably find an empty space with a mini-Boris driving Boris's squishy bits...
