The cold-hearted Master
Rin: "Masteeer! Wake uuup!"
Nigel: "What is it..?"
Rin: "Nyaru-chan is going to smash your laptop!"
Maybe I could have made this into a proper 'comic', but it really started out as photos with Nikki and Rin. And then the captions just sorta happened ^_^ So take it as an unofficial sequel to the last Nendo-comic. I think I have to develop that whole thing a bit more though. As in, maybe do an introductory chapter which would explain the whole scenario >u< And I should really have Nigel make an official appearance as well... Although mabe as just a shadowy creture, pretty much like the adults are in the Peanuts comics.
Nigel: *sigh* "Nyaru is up to what now?"
Rin: "Smash smash!"
Nigel: "Oh, bloody hell..."
To Nigel, the Nendos are just machines, no matter how much 'personality' they have built into them. So he doesn't have any empathy for them in general. Why has he then gotten one borderline psychotic and one over-enthusiastic maniac, is beyond me at this point XD But maybe it's like Marvin of Hitch-hiker's Guide, they just came with a package?
Nigel: "...Why did I get you in the first place?"
rin: "What did you say, Master?"
Nigel: "Nothing." *muttering* "...Should I do a personality upgrade on them..?"
Nigel is thinking about the same thing. And Actually "Why did you get them in the first place" is something that Valentine still consistently brings up when talk shifts to Nendos. Well, my enthusiasm with them (as well as the figures) is fluctuating, but when I do pick them up, they are adorbs!
I actually finally gave in and started to look for a Rin Append version. I almost bought it at Tracon last year, but didn't manage to justify the cost of 50€. In the end, I don't want two Rins, I just want the option parts for my current Rin. but that Append really has some neat parts, like the dual base connector and the winking face. And since I've managed to smudge my laughing Rin faceplate, I'd also get a new one with the Append version. Oh well, I did find it at a good price from MFC, from EU even, but the sale is still at a holdup, since the seller wants to sell their Append Rin and Len as a package, and I have no use for the Len.
Although if I get Rin Append, then I might have a harder time splitting Komari up... Maybe Nigel would want a nice, calm Nendo to balance these two out? ;)
