Simon and Lotus

Dice are delicious!

Simon and Lotus, the incredible duo that started their path in February of 2023, inside of my Song-a-day music series. It began as just pondering an amusing little clip of these toys playing with dice, Lotus, the demodog baby demogorgon, eating our dice, and Simon, a giant housefly of approximately the same size, pulling him away to save the dice. The series continued.

Amusingly, a storyline formed! Simon began building a dice tower, and the rascal Lotus came along and knocked it down on him! More storyline formed, it was discovered that Lotus was simply hungry! Awwww, poor little thing, he was just all hungy and needed something to eat, after he started eating one of the character sheets, and Simon in a brilliant move found a scrap sheet of paper for them to eat together! And a friendship was formed.

The playlist continued, it had to! There was more storyline to tell! Lotus began to go after original D&D dice, kept looking, kept snacking! And poor Simon found himself the caretaker, needing to reign in the unruly creature, and keep directing him to the scrap paper pile, their food snacks, inexplicably kept beside the oh-so-delicious looking dice lol. They became pets in the shop, found friends! And the playlist continues, whenever inspiration hits, and I add to it further.

And so, I give you, the full Simon and Lotus playlist, direct video and youtube links to all. Please enjoy, and keep checking back for more Simon and Lotus as they are uploaded!
