Entertaining a Crowd by DentistChicken Entertaining a Crowd by DentistChicken
    Dice shuffled her deck and started dealing cards on the folding table. Instead of her usual audience of people she'd trick and steal money from, she was entertaining a couple of Glowy Mushrooms and a Hollowed Sap. She started off by making a card levitate between her hands. The thing was, she isn't a mage of any sort. Despite the fact, she was quite the magician as the Glowy Mushrooms were entranced. The Hollowed Sap simply stared, unable to convey any emotions it was feeling because their face was a solid piece of wood, incapable of morphing into expressions, and they had no vocal box of any sort. They were purely hollow. Poor Saps. Must be hard to communicate to others.
    Dice made the card spin around in the air a few times before setting back onto the table. She picked up a card, the King of Hearts, and held it up, showing it to the Glowing pair on the table, and then held it up to the Sap. She continued to hold it up, and in the blink of an eye it changed in her hand to a Three of Clubs. The Glowing buddies stood up and scurried around the table to try and figure out where the other card went. The Hollowed Sap slowly brought its head to a tilt as it leaned slightly forward, perhaps confused.

    I had the idea pop in my head today during the time between classes, but my laptop wasn't cooperating with me, so I let it stew for a while until I could get home. I figured some of the more passive creatures would take some enjoyment from Dice's little tricks. The mushrooms would probably refuse to let her leave until she taught them how to do the trick. But after teaching it, how would they share this information? Do the little fun-guys have tiny decks of cards? Are they capable of making papyrus and ink? These are the important questions.

ahaha this is super cute??? I love the little glowy mushrooms sitting on her table. The hollowed sap, of course, seems to be quite interested in what Dice has to offer. Not quite the audience she was expecting lol.
CLEARLY the mushrooms have telepathy xDD 
no i'm just kidding lol

Yeah, she definitely wasn't thinking "you know what, how about today I do card tricks for some creatures that live outside of town"
Oh my god if they had telepathy that would be pretty adorable, although I assumed they made little squeaks that were to high pitched for the character's ears. I'm still trying to imagine the little fungi all gathering around one of them with a make shift desk of cards, probably a bunch of leaves with doodles on them

OH GOSH and i thought these fungi were already too cute xD The thought of makeshift cards being a bunch of leaves with doodles on them is TOO CUTE. Actually I can imagine them squeaking too lol. I also feel like they're squishy, like rubber toys for some reason, even though they're actually mushrooms xDD 
wow who knew fictional intelligent mushrooms were so fun to think about xD

Oh my goodness! Little squishy buddies is such an adorable thought, but I'd imagine they wouldn't like strangers coming up to them and squishing them!
It is incredibly fun to think about them and how they work! Especially when they're that cute!
