Hey mates!

I've recently found a new pet in the Deep Blue, :D this is Squiddy:

..__..Squiddy's usual attitude. :|
.(°°)
./()\

Initially, I thought it would stay still, staring at me, but I noticed it is perfectly able to move, and to show emotions.

Below are examples of Squiddy's attitudes, probably reltated to it's emotional state.
Please let me know what is your interpretation of the attitudes below, because I may have misinterpreted.
Your advice is especially valued if you own such a pet.

1.-__.. Smile :)
....{--}
..../( )\

2.-___..Very happy :D
....{==}
..../ ( ) \

3.-___..LOL :lol:
....{^^}
..../ ( ) \

4.-__.. Afraid
....(xx)

12.-__.. Deeply thinking
1....(qp)
1..../( )\

13.-__.. Bored asleep

1....(°o)
1..../( )\

23..__..Cool 8)
-....(ơơ)
-..../( )\

24..__..Rolling eyes :roll:
-....(99)
-..../( )\

25..__..Mad :x
-....(òó)
-..../( )\

26.1__..Evil :evil:

....../( )\

27.1__..Twisted evil :twisted:
....-{èé}
....../( )\

28.-__..Cry :cry:
......(çç)
....../( )\


I've seen Squiddy moving its arms, at occasions.

30..__.. Concentrated
1....(°°)
1....(())

31..__.. Tense
1....(°°)
1....//\\

32..__.. Alarm! :!:
...._(ºº)_
1...../ \

33..__.. Found a pearl! :idea:
1....(°°)
1...õ( )\

34..__.. Hesitating :arrow:
1....(°°)
1..../()\

35..__..Saluting
1....(°°)J
1..../()

36..__..Embarassed :oops:
-....(66)
....(())


You may be aware of an attitude I didn't catch so far. Just post it below, I'll update the thread.
In particular, I haven't seen so far very complex combinations of moving eyes and arms and changing colour. It might be interesting.

EDIT. Below is one of such combination. Actually, it was not a nice sight :?
I need to watch out and monitor Squiddy more closely.
Bad, naughty Squiddy! :x

40..°__.. ...D-ddrunk... hiccup!
1....°(%)_
1--..../()


Thanks.
See my sig for other designs.

More Squiddys 11 posts below! :D

Hell no.
It kept me awaken from midnight to quater past midnight, the idea was there ready to be implemented.
This morning, it took me some half an hour's break to type it up.
I need breaks, the last two days, when I came back home, I woke my wife up, just to say I spend long hours at work... but this includes some such breaks. :P

Thanks, Belial, you inspired me a new one (40)... and I included also eight more (16-23).

@ all, remember, anyone can suggest me better meanings for the interpretation of the attitudes!

You are composed entirely of insane.

It's nice to see that ascii art isn't dead. Well done.

Thanks for the comments. 8)

@ Ehakir
The black & white Squiddy is better represented starting with a bubble than with a dot. See below.

I discovered new attitudes, added above!
No wonder.
With a new pet, you may have to wait for a while before it grows in confidence and shows new emotions.

-=-=-=-
How do you translate the French "farfelu" into English? Google translates it by "wacky", my dictionary says "scatterbrained". :?

-=-=-=-
I'm wondering if this bizarre thread should belong to the "Off topic" forum (as presently), to the "Ideas" forum (in case someone wanted to make a T-shirt with Squiddy's displays - free of copyright), or to the "Painting and Modelling" forum, taken into account its evolutions.

Hey mates!

I've discovered that Squiddy, like his kin, could be excellent in mimicry. 8) !cool!

It has been a stunning event when we (Squiddy and his master) paid a visit to Malekith himself and his mother, intrigued by such a clever animal (yes, squids are renown to be one of the most intelligent animals to exist).
Suddenly, Squiddy mimicked them, but, to my relief, they both took it the light side, and we were allowed to go back home safely.

After that memorable event, there were many Dark Elves who wanted to see how Squiddy would mimic them. As I've noticed it can grow horns, anything seems feasible! Even some animals and objects did inspire Squiddy! This small animal never ceases to impress me. :o

Below are some attempts by Squiddy to mimic some people it has met.
Sometimes, Squiddy is gifted. Sometimes, Squiddy fails to catch the idea.
Up to you to make your opinion about Squiddy!
My favourite is Lokhir, of course!

I hope Squiddy will not actually start playing DE.

There have been for long some sigs with Bunny, and another one with a truck.

He has been specially trained by "the Old man of the Mountain".
He looks cute and than bites off your aorta when you least expect it..

I wanted something for corsairs, and made the frigate and the drakkar (see the hyperlink in my sig).
Quickly after, I had the idea of a squid.
Few days later, I imagined that I could change the eyes of the squid and reflect emotions. I did a sistematic test with all letters I could find.
Next step, I tried to find a squid for all D.net emoticons and found all of them.
Then I wondered if the squid could mimic DE units.

Now that Squiddy is let loose, you never know where it will go!

@ Dalamar, I can make Squiddy the D.R.A.I.C.H.'s mascot. :D
I don't mind at all anyone kidnapping Squiddy for his signature.
and hey, you know what, I just submitted the collection to the Masthead Competition. Who knows?

@ Layne & Arquinsiel
Hey, remember that the legal duration of work in France is 35 hours per week! Not only food & wine are excellent, but also we're supposed to have plenty of leisure here! 8)
But that's drifting off topic. Please let's keep Squiddy slippery, not the discussion.

@ Rork & Kinslayer:
Thanks mates.

Drinks other than tea are available:

....A....Italian coffee
.\(°°)J
../__\

.mm..Glass of Squiddy. Cheer's Squiddy!
.(°°)D
-l__l...Beer, of course!

...ïï...Bottle of Squiddy
-(°°)
.(__)...Sparkling water? Champagne?

And other weapons:

..__......Squiddy with sabre.
.(°°).)
./()LD...... not only because it is the weapon of corsairs,
.................. but also because it is used to open bottles of champagne! :P
