Minipost: The legend of Fabyoulore, part 2


After the strange mail Fabulor received from "Fabyoulore", I didn't think much of it for a while. I figured it had just been someone I knew who would get a kick out of something like that, like Liala, Narci or Dee, and that I wouldn't hear from Fabyoulore again.

However, my guildie Lyonn had a few encounters of his own with Fabyoulore...

Lyonn was hanging out in Orgrimmar's Tauren area (which we call the T-spot) one night when Fabyoulore randomly whispered him. Fabyoulore, who was sitting in a tub of water near the blacksmith, told Lyonn to come into his office (the tub), as he had a business proposition. He added that his office was going through renovations. He then asked Lyonn to bring him to "his evil twin" Fabulor, because Fabulor had something of his.


Fabyoulore's "office".

What made this even more bizarre was that every time this happened, I was not online, so Lyonn couldn't actually do anything about it! He kept reporting these strange occurrences to me, amused and confused, wondering if it was some kind of strange RP event I was participating in. But I knew nothing about it, and was just as curious!

This continued for like a week. Fabulor and Fabyoulore were simply not destined to meet.

But then, one day, it happened. I was on my druid Mardak talking to Lyonn (who was on his alt, Taupy), when:



So I logged onto Fabulor, put on my RP set and RP-walked into the T-spot. What would happen? I had absolutely no idea what I was in store for. Furthermore, whoever Fabyoulore was, it wasn't anyone on my Real ID, which eliminated all the people I would have suspected. Mysterious!

Well, as soon as I approached, Fabyoulore leaped out of his office and immediately barraged me with about a dozen snowballs and a Voodoo Skull, then ran off and vanished.



It was hilarious. Fabyoulore cackled a bit more, then logged off.

I didn't see him again for a few months, and kind of forgot about it. A while later, I got hacked, and though I got my items restored, Fabulor's RP set remained in the restoration mail for a few weeks, as I was busy doing other things.

A few weeks ago, though, Buglamp returned to the game, and as I was telling him about Fabyoulore, I decided that hey, this is as good a time as any to get my RP set out of the mail and back into my bags. I fetched the items and went over to the bank to put away some other restored items, and had been standing there chatting with Bug about Fabyoulore when suddenly, what do I see out of the corner of my eye?


I hadn't seen Fabyoulore in months, and suddenly, as soon as I don my RP set, he shows up within minutes! Now THIS was strange.

Even better was the fact that I had no idea how long Fabyoulore had been hiding there, right next to me, hiding behind the Orgrimmar Brave.


I told Bug, who immediately headed over to look for himself, and who immediately lost his mind when he saw that Fabyoulore was actually stealthed and hiding, staring at Fabulor. I think it blew his mind a little. And it only got worse when Fabyoulore started pelting Fabulor with snowballs AGAIN, before cackling and running off and disappearing.


I haven't seen Fabyoulore since, but I suspect Fabulor hasn't seen the last of his sinister twin. (And I still don't know who it is! Which makes it even more fun.)

    Hahahaha! This is totally hilarious! Fabyoulore must have Fabulor on all his alts' Friendslists, to pop up so soon that way.
    Hmm, maybe that's kind of creepy.

    This is amazing. Just another reason I read your blog man. We all should make Fab alts and you could have your own "crew."
