Man Hua, god of action figures and dolls, sighed and opened his hand, dropping one of his carefully-crafted Immaculate Monk action figures two inches to the desktop. It fell face-down in front of the Solar Exalt action figure that was standing there, which had an equally-carefully-crafted powerbow accessory snapped into its hand.

The cause of Man Hua's annoyance shrugged, as if to say the disturbance wasn't his fault, but Man Hua knew his supervisor was secretly quite glad to have some work, any work, to give him. The supervisor walked by, setting a stack of forms on the desk as he passed without even stopping. He only narrowly missed the Solar Exalt.

Man Hua sighed again, picking up the top form and glancing over it once. Form 3057(C) - Report of Unexpected Death in Typically Non-Lethal Situation, it read. For a moment, Man Hua's heart leapt - maybe it wasn't meant for him, because it was hard to kill yourself with a...

Wait, what?

Why had she even... how did she... what.

As Man Hua kept reading, he went from confusion, to horror, to disgust, and then back to confusion, before finally settling on a simple facepalm. Why were mortals so stupid sometimes?

Pulling out his quill and inkwell, he sighed one last time. This was going to be a long day.

Ineha Poxit sighed as the office day began for him once more. As the god of being fashionably late to parties, get-togethers, hoe-downs, and hootenannies, his day normally consisted of stamping some forms to make sure the appropriate lesser terrestrial gods impeded Cynis whatever, or Peleps whomever on their traveled around the Blessed Isle or wherever it was taking place. Ineha was admittedly late to work today, but he was always late to work, and attempts to artificially make his day start when he would normally arrive without his knowledge only ever resulted in him showing up even later. Either way today was going to be yet another parade of meaningless drudgery.

Still he couldn't help for hope for a... special assignment. Sometimes parties actually needed him, or someone prayed loud enough and directly to him that he was able to drop everything and show up, just for a little bit of novelty in his day to day life... but that was unlikely today. No, ever singe the usurpation things rarely changed for the better. It took all Ineha had to keep what fraction of his old job still existed in its present form, and even that always had the chance of slipping further away.

Man Hua checked his mirror quickly, verifying that his hair was still golden and spiky like it should be (it was a reference to a character from a first age comic, but practically no one ever got the reference any more) before he looked over at the desk next to him, where his neighbor had just arrived. Ostensibly, Man Hua should've been jealous of his ability to show up to work late every day without consequence, but it wasn't like Man Hua actually had to do anything anyway, so the spiky-haired god didn't really care.

"Any fun parties in Yu-Shan today, Ineha? Anything you want to crash?"

Near the end of the row, Jiritsu Tori was having a busier, but no more productive day. His two-cubicle-down neighbor had managed to somehow break her Omniscient Literary Advisor, and had been complaining to him all day that it had been giving her gibberish. It had taken twenty minutes to explain to her for the umpteenth time that no, you can't just set the advisor in the middle of a stack of books to queue up all the books for it to read; it reads the one underneath it, and if you stack a bunch of other books there, that just muddles everything up. Finally she left, heading back to her desk, much more chipper than Tori would have liked, leaving him to his work. All that was going on today was someone starting up a new totem pole to a tribal chieftain, which barely counted and was more of a "heads up" than anything else. So instead of working and tending to the one or two sheets in his inbox (which, frankly, could wait, since they were were notices of moving galleries, which would just require him to move some papers from one folder to another), he doodled. The Empress had been one of his preferred subjects of late; she actually required less artistic finagling than a lot of royalty. Some royalty needed a complete re-interpretation in order to preserve the well-being of the artist (one less than successful attempt of late, the artist had labeled his portrait of Queen Amaburatim "cubism," which ended badly). But for the Empress? A bit of lighting here, some makeup there, and that was really all it took.

A loose set of joints formed themselves on the page, but a setting was harder to come up with.
