dreamermoa: (great scarf of birds)

[The first few moments of this post seem to be filled with gentle rustling. It's not entirely clear what exactly is rustling, or why Moa would turn the communicator on for it, but once it calms down, she offers a phrase.]

I love you.

[There's silence. Although it seems she was hoping for a response, she doesn't sound perturbed. She just repeats herself instead:]

I love you.

[This time, a voice answers her back. It's definitely not human - it's higher and almost tinny. But the words are clear: ]

I love you.

[Moa laughs, pleased.]

Pretty bird.

Pretty bird.

How are you?

[No response this time. Now she addresses you, her audience.]

He doesn't know that one yet.

I'm thinking of naming him Minato.

A fine name. Do you know what kind he is?

[Tee hee.]

A Grey Parrot. They're really smart. He's kind of noisy sometimes, though.

[As if to demonstrate this, the bird begins to bite at his cage bars, making a racket.]

I'm sure you can train him to not do that as often.

What does he eat?

Nuts and seeds and dried cranberries. I've heard that they occasionally eat snails, but I don't have any of those. He talks about crackers, but he doesn't actually seem to like them much.

[she hadn't thought about that.]

Oh. He'll repeat those, too, won't he.

[There's a second of silence before Mikey snickers]

Does Minny want a cracker?

I think it's a good name for him. He's pretty silly.

[The parrot in question is making lots of noise with his beak and the metal bars of his cage.]

Sorry for the epic late T_T

He's a parrot, of course he's silly!

...it also sounds like he's trying to stage a jailbreak over there.

I LIVE OFF OF LATENESS

[Giggle.]

Yeah, I think he wants attention. They're really social birds. Maybe that's why they learn to talk.

Heh, so how did you end up with a pet parrot?

Date: 2011-04-08 04:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
The scientists sent him to me.

[There's a pause and a silence while she pets the bird gently. She seems quite content with her present. After a while: ]

Did you get anything?

[Curious boyfriend is curious. Whatever are you talking to and why do you love it? And why does it love you?]

Naming what Minato?

[Don't worry, Federico. You're not being replaced.]

My new bird! Look!

[She turns the camera on (to her face), turns it to the bird, and awaits him to be as excited as she is. BIRDS ARE AWESOME, RIGHT?]

[Wipes brow.]

What a curious little thing... it can talk?

[AWESOME. But it better cut that love you stuff. That's his job man.]

[ <3 ]

Yeah! Birds are really smart! Especially this kind. I'm going to teach him to say all kinds of things. You should come see him!

[Well why don't you come over here and do your jorb good sir?]

[He'll chuckle now, her excitement quite adorable.]

I will be right over. I must see this amazing bird in person.

Ahh!

Miss Moa can I talk to your bird? I can't see him, but I can hear and I know that's a bird's voice!

[He beams at the camera. He liked chatting with Moa and he still loved all animals that didn't want to eat him, so this was a pleasant combination]

That's a nice name, I think. Minato. Can I see what he looks like?

[Luke :D]

Sure! Here he is!

[THE CAMERA PANS DRAMATICALLY TO THE BIRD. Well, maybe not dramatically. And now the grey parrot seems like it doesn't want to talk. It looks away and starts preening.]

Hello, pretty bird! How are you?

[Hello. Luke's not helping this bird learn English, because yes Moa, Luke is currently speaking bird.]

[ooc: You knowest the drill X_x; you tell me what your birdie says, lol. I am so super excited cause EVERYONE is posting about their fuzzy creatures lately and that means Luke gets to talk to lots of fuzzy things.]
From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
[The bird's head swivels back around to the camera. He looks surprised, if a parrot can look surprised.

"Are you there? Inside the box?"
]

[video] Totally okay! Moa might be confused lol

From: [identity profile] luke-triton.livejournal.com
I'm not in the box, I'm talking from...[Awkward pause. The word communicator wouldn't make sense to a bird, probably.]

From this machine.

It's nice to meet you Minato!

There's a good joke in that somewhere, but I can't think of it right now.

Date: 2011-03-26 11:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
Huh?

[The bird sounds like it's knocking against something to make noise. Wee!]

From: [identity profile] invisibill.livejournal.com
Normally I'd say something about a bird brain or parroting ninjas, but I'm not much in the mood for jokes right now.

[She will giggle anyway.]

I like that. Those are good jokes. [c: ]

Lucky creature, isn't he... Can I see him?

[Sunao c: ]

Sure! He likes people. At least, he likes me. [ .D. ]

We're in my apartment right now. In Latimir.

From: [identity profile] mizu-isei.livejournal.com
I think it would be hard not to... can I meet him? That way, you can tell if he likes other people.

Hm... okay.

[A couple minutes later a curious Sunao knocks on your door.]

Date: 2011-04-08 04:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
....oh...[Yeah just realized what you just said. Pfftt....<3....A-anyway....we shall open the door! Hi Sunao! :D The parrot is sitting on his cage, making a racket with the bars.]

Hi!

Date: 2011-04-08 04:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] mizu-isei.livejournal.com
Hi there... you doing alright?

[Of course, Moa gets a smile as well as a wave. Then Sunao slides in to peer curiously at the bird.]

Where did you find it?

Date: 2011-04-08 04:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
[c:!! ]

The scientists sent him to me. Birds are my favorite animals, so I decided to get one.

[Bird knocks on the bars a few more times, then peers back at you from the corner of his eye. Then knocks.

Then looks.


What do you think.

[A-aww, that's kind of adorable.]

It's more like the parrot's the special one. He's super smart. I've heard sometimes they learn how to get out of their cages and stuff.

[Tavros tends to do that sometimes. He loses himself half the time, anyway.]

From: [identity profile] dreamermoa.livejournal.com
Oh! Well...

[She looks at the bird. (The bird looks at her.)]

I guess he is, since he speaks. They aren't very common, though. At least not where I'm from - mostly it's just humans.
