the proto honkit is unleashed
Spoiler :

Honkin (Name pending review)

Trivia
Honkin's are... Well... Odd.
To start with, compared to other members of the Honk genus, Honkin are... Simple? Foolish? Whatever the case, what exactly is going on in it's noggin is impenetrable to all outsiders.
What is apparent however, is that regardless of it's actual intelligence it certainly acts moronic.
Honkin are well known for walking in circles, into walls, off cliffs, into objects, other Honkin, etc etc etc, without any apparent recognition that the action is either impossible or dangerous.
If you catch a Honkin doing these, they will continue walking in whatever direction they were heading before they encountered an obstacle.
Or members of the Honk genus are strangely protective of Honkin, putting aside usual shenanigans for the sake of keeping the Honkin out of danger. Due to this, keeping a Honkin safely on or around your person is a good way to get other members of the Honk family to trust you. Likewise, harming a Honkin will cause them to go ballistic.*

Strength/Weaknesses
Honkin are harmless. If you find one on its own, you can kill them with ease. You monster.
Bizzarely, Honkin are immune to all thought intrusion. Whatever thoughts these things have, nobody else will ever know.
If the Honkin is ever in danger, other members of the Honk family will be summoned from increasingly large distances. They usually are not happy.

Techniques
Empty Stare- The Honkin gives you a blank look, void of any signs that this is a creature that thinks.
Danger Beacon - The Honkin places itself in harms way. Again.
Faceshift- The one unique thing Honkin have is perhaps one of the strangest things out of the entire Honk family. Rarely, a Honkin learns to actually express itself. It does this by attempting to resemble other, more famous (or infamous) faces.**

*On the other hand, if you are interested in befriending the Mimeo's...***
**Yes, those faces. You probably can guess the ones. No, they aren't very picky about when they do this. Yes, it can be very awkward at parties.
***This is mentioned for factual accuracy, we do not condone befriending of Mimeo's. Report any Mimeo sightings in your area to your local supervisor.
no more clowns for at least a week after this

So is there a font where the Unicode full-width Latin characters are not the worst thing to read? Related: why not use Em-Space (" ")? Defined as the width of the character `M`, it has the nice feature of being wide enough to be noticeable.

If there is, and it works with the forum, and is as easy to use as [ https://fullwidthtext.blogspot.ca/ ] that would be swell? ' -';

" Councilor Myeth, No! . . . Allow the Techmind to helpfully send a [Tier 1 Courier] to retrieve the Honk Creature for you. We do not understand your fascination with them, but the Techmind does not discriminate based on taste. Besides, if we retrieve it, then it's one last thing that Visitor Aubrey has to worry about. Although it's probably the care package. Hopefully. "

Spoiler: From the Palce Records
TELEGRAM SENT AT HALF SUN: Wrote:Whatareyoudoing

Letter adressed to Sunflower, sent at three fourths sun. If not delivered, please return to the association. Wrote:There is nothing you should worry about. Carry on your messenger duties, Sunflower.

TELEGRAM SENT AT SUNDOWN Wrote:Icanseeyou

Didyoujustoverthrowthem

Letter adressed to sunflower, sent at moonrise. If not delivered, destroy it. Wrote:Do you see that little staff in my hands? Is this still a question?

I will be up when a little bird says this, so worry not.

This will be fine.

Spoiler: Overheard from the garden
A bud enters the garden. Their flowers are about to bloom, but they haven't opened fully yet. They sit there, basking in the sun.

Briefly, there is a crumple of leaves. They grumble.
“Sunflower, haven’t I told you to leave already?”

Silence.

Then a crumple of leaves again.

“I can tell you’re there. Don’t even bother.”

There is a sigh, before Sunflower enters. Their body is covered with their own seeds and leaves, with the occasional petals it. With seeds for eyes, they squint at their leader.

You wanted a letter delivered to who?”

“It’s on the back of the letter, Sunflower.”

I’ve never imagined you’d talk to such ....... seedy people.”

“Spare me the puns.”

Not allowed.”

Sunflower waves the letter in front of the bud's face.

The Ivy would do nothing to help us.”

“It is in their intrest.”

Are you planning to sacrifice this year‘s seedlings?”

The bud pauses. “Nothing of the sort.”

Conscription.

“Of course not, whom do you take me for?”

Even without looking at Sunflower, the bud knows that the other wouldn’t look at them.

My leader.”

“As I should be. Speak to the Ivy. If they won’t answer to a letter...”

The bud picked up a leaf and crushed it.

As you wish.

And so Sunflower left, leaving the bud alone once more.

Is this satisfactory enough or what you meant

“Remember when we were part of something else?”

!!Not that you good folks need me telling you this, haha!!
!!But in Bananatech, it pays to be Absolutely, Positively, 100% on the same page with all employees!!
