Myca was doing what she usually did- which meant flitting around wherever she wanted and following her whims. In this case she had been out in the woods racing squirrels up and down several trees. Of course they hadn't known it was a race, they were just fleeing from the weird little sprite who was hooting and cheering at all the fun.

Tiring of the flying she stopped to shove her whole face into a couple flowers in search of delicious nectar. When she heard something larger walking nearby she hurried to pop her head back out and take a look. Getting smooshed while her head was in the flowers would be a terrible way to go. Well, mostly it would be terrible to be smooshed in any context.

Anyways... she looked around for what could have been walking around. It didn't sound like the squirrels coming back to jump her and it definitely wasn't the bees or the birds or anything she recognized by sound.

Well, whatever it was seemed to be the size and general shape of a human, but it certainly wasn't one. Champierrot was just waking up again, still one of his first few days on the island. He knew that he'd been told to make people happy, but... after arriving from the last of his creator's spells, which placed him in the middle of the woods, his biggest concern was whether or not there were people to make happy.

He knew that animals didn't talk for the most part, but with them being all he'd seen so far they were his only option. That's why he was trying to do his 'introduction' routine on a squirrel. State your name, try to take off the mushroom cap and bow, mime like it's stuck to your head, pull hard and fall on your ass. He had it down to a science by now.

The squirrel didn't laugh. Champierrot sat back up and shrugged before standing up and brushing himself off.

"Ah well, buddy's some tough crowd I guess" He said to himself.

Myca, being the curious type, couldn't help herself. She zoomed around with her little dragonfly wings as she searched the area.

Naturally it didn't take too long to find the giant, colorfully dressed figure... trying to perform for squirrels? How silly.

The just over one foot tall sprite laughed and fluttered over near the golem face, cheerfully waving and smiling. "Hi! Are you playing with the squirrels today too?"

Champierrot spun rather dramatically to face towards the pixie, giving her a grin.

"Figured they look like they'd have a better sense of humour than the birds and the bugs, but I guess they leave a little to be desired too eh?" He replied. He gave the same dramatic bow as he did to the squirrels, this time actually managing to remove his cap and let his hair flop over his face when he straightened back up.

"Champierrot, nice to meet ya" He said, holding out his hand with the mushroom cap still in it. He took a glance at it.

"Well now look where the damn thing's stuck. First my head and now this!" He said in mock annoyance, shaking his arm while maintaining the idea that it really was stuck to his hand.

Myca giggled at the antics and hovered in front of the golem with as big of a grin as her small stature could allow. "I'm Myca! The squirrels might be grumpy if they're some of the ones I was racing earlier."

She glanced at the 'stuck' hat and covered her mouth with one hand. "Oh noooo. Do you want help pulling it off?"

"Oh, I couldn't possibly ask someone to risk getting stuck on this thing too." He responded before bringing the cap back up to his head and fitting it on properly.​
"So they're all sore losers, eh? Goes to show anyone can be one" He said with a laugh before offering his hand once again, seemingly not seeing any issue with a handshake at this size difference.​
"So, whaddya go by?"​

"Shh, there's a giant one who gets upset if you mess with them too much." Myca laughed too and reached out with her own hand to enthusiastically greet the golem. Though it did kind of take her whole hand clasping his fingertip and then using her wings to fly up and down to manage some semblance of a handshake.

"I'm Myca of the Frostfurs," she announced proudly and straightened her posture in the air. "Nobody told me there were giant mushroom people here too, this is so exciting. Do you live in giant mushrooms? Are you magical?" Her excitable nature made her practically shake as she started firing off questions.

"If that's the case I better watch how loud I talk so I don't end up chewed fulla holes." He responded, crossing his arms and giving an unnecessarily dour nod before he cracked a smile again. He considered the questions in order, tracing his finger through the air as he answered.​
"Mm, no and yes. I don't really live in anything now, just sorta set down some filaments and sleep in the leaves. I sure am magical, though!" He declared proudly.​
"One hundred per-cent magically animated fungus! Put together by one Stephen Jacques and at your service!"​

Without asking Myca landed on the golem's shoulder and sat down. "Oh, leaves can be fun!. Especially the crunchy ones. But... sleeping on the ground is bad. You might get stepped on!"

Her whole body shivered at the though and she briefly hugged her arms to her chest.

"I should show you where the colony is sometime. Theres a whole bunch of us that live in mushroom houses! I dont think we can make one big enough... but maybe you can-you're magic and huge." She laughed and kicked her feet lightly in amusement.
