I am going to be putting this warning out there right now: There's a bit much in this post and do not blame you if you want to skip ahead to what's the basics of this thread. I've marked it too, in case you want to jump ahead to that!
It'd already been a few days since Alaistair first met two of the other members of the organization, Yangcong and Kon. He had to figure out how he'd have to deal with the two of them in the future, judging just from what Alaistair read on their most recent actions. Yet, he had a different ordeal that he felt needed addressing: Asserting control over the planet! Sure, it'd not be under his ruling hand, but the prospect of essentially being like a Lord of this realm and using it to take over the Demon Realm was just the thing Alaistair was looking forward to doing. He just didn't anticipate it would be in the form of helping Derry take on the provident role of President of the Earth... Or would it be something royal like Emperor or King? Alaistair knew the pink debonair had been seeking presidency, but the curiosity was still persistent!
Whatever the case would be, he messaged his highest ranking folks through the private networks that the Cherry Fishing Company had, stating that they were to be working with the people running the Snake Eyes Casino LLC to help their Head CEO, Derry Ottoy, become President! Alaistair stated that they would be holding a public event, to show the support to the presidency as well as celebrating their 2 month relationship with his company. It was a haphazard motion to suddenly run such an event, but after their increase in sales since the joint partnership, Alaistair knew they could handle it.
After that message, Alaistair had messaged the members of the Dirty Snakes about this event he'd be running, to establish some plans to move forward with making Derry president. He invited them, stating that this would be a good time to see if there were any potential opposition to them. Free food, drink, and entertainment were also mentioned in the message! Of course, he also relayed to Derry first that with this event, he'd recommended sending a public invitation to the rest of the Snakes Eyes company. That way, this wouldn't appear as random.
Coming to the day, after a lot of lobbying for a convention center space in South City, the event would come to be! It was designed to be a open market for aspiring market for small businesses in the South City. They would be able to request display spaces, ranging from stands selling cheap but unique dishes developed in the city, to those larger spaces displaying prototype vehicles or machines. Naturally, though, there was a bit of paperwork and security protocols to be met for certain things to get through. Weapons sales were denied outright, as well as any faulty machines that were too garish to look at or would otherwise be deemed safety hazards. This convention would go through a week and be primarily hosted by the Cherry Fishing Company. Vendors would be able to request time tables and spaces to display their products at this event. Part of their proceeds, written in the contracts at a meager 2%, would be transferred to the Presidential Campaign, to advocate for Derry's future Presidency! Invitations were zapped all around the globe with the web, as well as print out invitations sent to the managerial departments of both the Cherry Fishing Company and the Snake Eyes Casino LLC!
For those who are looking to jump ahead, start with the paragraph down below.
The convention space that Alaistair's people were able to procure was sizeable enough to fit up to 75,000 square feet, looking very much dome shaped! The outer wall was a right white with plenty of decks for groups to go on to, whether it was for helipads or to have group gatherings for parties or meetings. Large windows permitted the building plenty of natural lighting to the interior offices and the main floor of the structure. This massive building stands a 1179 feet tall on the outside, with a large hangar at the top of the structure, it's purpose to allow vehicles to rise in and out! On the inside, there were plenty of elevators and escalators for going up and down the structure, with force fields towards the center, just past the rails to stop the stronger than average person from jumping over the edge or being knocked off.
Alaistair had been at the ground floor, assisting in getting dozens of food vendors inside this place. He was choosing to make himself busy, not wanting to think about the enormous costs it was going to be for having such a massive structure available to them for an entire week! If he was going to be spending so much for this campaign, he was going to be making himself busy! Being that he was also helping running the event with the Snakes Eyes LLC, both companies would have permanent space for the whole convention cycle! The Snake Eyes would essentially have a mini Casino inside several of the rooms, doing the usual, 'run of the mill,' games. Meanwhile, the Cherry Fishing Company would be occupying a few rooms on the first floor above the showroom on the other side of the Snake Eyes dealing with work sign ups, talking about the future of the company, and all the other boring business jargon expected of a fishing company!
The main floor of the convention center was quickly being filled up by all sorts of people. There were even rumors going around that there was a martial arts tournament going to be happening in the near future during this convention! It was partially why Alaistair was on the ground floor: He did not know where this came from and, while he wasn't opposed, he needed to be gauging the possible contenders... And also find the nitwit that put the rumor out there!
OKAY! Spaztastically long opener is complete! My apologies for the length and if it was confusing.
