(also, Can we Have Intrusive occur? Or is Helen's Majesty to great for mortal eyes?)

Intrusive'll only work if we leanr someone's name.

We know their name.

This is great! You have a great new patron. You think you'll even name it!

Recoil hits you hard. You immediately leap to your available bartending tools, pulling out ingredients that sound about appropriate. Stax steps out of the way to keep your workspace clean, and you work frantically.

The bar rocks loudly with the feeling of the honkit speaking at full volume. This volume is far above what you'd consider reasonable in any context, and the ceiling struggles to stay up.

You have the thought that maybe it'd be helpful to get some more information on this species.

With the teensiest bit of hesitation, Laren hands you her PDA-- and you begin tapping away. You're still a bit unfamiliar, but searching the Wyreforums isn't the most complicated thing in the world, and within seconds you've found a Wyre that might just have the answers you seek.

Oh, hell.

Helen stomps on the stool.

You feel yourself working at an insane pace-- whether it's from newly gained skill or the need to get past this quickly isn't quite clear, but your hands work deftly and your liquid workflow cascades like a river.

Again, the bar rattles-- harder this time. It's not easy to tell if the horrifying creature is trying to break free of this mortal coil, casting a spell, or expressing delight.

Regardless, you have finished Helen's drink, and serve it your newest boiling concoction, complete with a cherry on top.

Upon spotting the dish, Helen fanatically dips it into the toothy maw of its clown-face front, and after downing several gulps, lets out a LONG stream of noises.

Just as the honkit is finally quieted by its constant and incessant intake of boiling, dangerous liquid, two familiar faces enter the bar, right on time! It's Nadezhda and Voronezh, and each of them hold a pair of glass cups-- the same make and model as yours.

Voronezh puts down his pair of stolen receptacles, and Nadezhda follows after, bringing your grand total of cups to 10. That should easily be enough!

As Vor speaks, Helen swivels its body instantaneously to face him, its honking clown-face contorting interdimensionally as it laughs.

Both members of the bug pair step back a bit, flinching. Your existing patrons seem to have almost gotten used to it by now, and wince quite a bit less.

As with last time you met this pair, they're ordering two different things with an insistence on haste. Trying to make two different drinks at once is multitasking, and although you're a better bartender now, doing so will still have risks attached.

With the creation of your first drink in quite a while, you've added four new entries to the Cabinet:

Spoiler: Author's Notes
I really gotta thank y'all for being so awesome during this adventure. This update was a blast and I hope to have this pace kept up!

There are a lot of things to pick up on in the Starnet post, both related to Helen and not related to Helen-- feel free to share with your fellow input-submitters if you find out some information or any easter eggs!

Perhaps try with the following:
  • 2 cups of Mashed Skygrain
  • 2 spring water
  • 1 Generic Object
  • 2 pinches of Urgency

That'll give you two servings of a generic base brew, and then for Voronezh's:
  • Remove the Generic Object, add to Nadezhda's drink
  • Add 1 Imperial Jelly
  • Serve over the rocks, where the rock is a Matterhorn Chunk

Nadezhda:
  • Add 1 Antipodal Shard; Generic Object should become a Generic Unobject
  • Serve with 1 Bag of Gruits left in the glass to infuse

Oh. Oh dear.
I think the Honkit might be a bit broken.
It's a bit hard to tell, honestly.

With no natural rival to keep it in check, it may have thrown all restraint out the window.
...We're going to want to keep, uh. "Helen" happy.
We don't want an unhappy Honkit. Nobody wants that.

Spoiler :
How is it not dead?
Checked the ingredients, and that little thing has some sort of nightmarish constitution to it.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.
