[Halloween | Open log!]

[Look at that calendar, dear Kiseki residents! Do you see what day is today? Do you?


It's Harry Dresden's birthday! Yay!

It's such an important date that the land itself decided to throw a themed party for him, in which he's trapped and unable to leave before midnight. Therefore, starting at around 10 am, a big section of the park starts resembling Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!

That'd be the wrong wizard named Harry but who cares as long as the food is good, right?

We have, among other things, a Quidditch field with brooms that don't fly - unless except MAYBE if you ask an actual wizard to enchant them -, a TARDIS-sized Shrieking Shack, and a replica of the Great Hall where there are tables with lots of food and cake and more cake and the ceiling is just like the sky… No, wait. That is the actual sky.

Oh, oh. I guess it's Halloween too. Thus, some of the characters who wander inside the party zone may have their clothes changed to the Hogwarts house they'd be in if they were students. Even if they have never heard of anything Potter.]

((OOC: Everyone is welcome to the party! And welcome to mingle, of course =) You can give your good wishes to the birthday boy in his thread here))

Excuse me.

[ he debated transforming before doing this, but ultimately decided on addressing the network as mamoru and not tuxedo kamen. ]

My name is Chiba Mamoru, and I've recently arrived here from Earth in the 20th Century. Japan, to be exact. [ time and location were important when you knew traveling through time was possible. and as earth's guardian, he knew for a fact that this wasn't his planet. he couldn't feel the earth, and that was beyond unsettling. ] If someone could tell me more about this place — where it is, whether it's possible to leave — it would be greatly appreciated.

[ he wanted to ask who was here with him... it was someone he knew, someone he's close to. there's something about the way the wind rushed by him that seemed to say: you're not alone. he didn't know that his daughter was already here, just that this was a situation he wouldn't have to endure alone. ]

In the meantime, I suppose I should look for a place to stay; a hotel, perhaps? I don't have any way to pay for boarding, but am willing to work for it.

[How's it going, Kisekians? Are you weirded out or traumatized enough yet? Have you lost your ability to feel anything at all and therefore don't care about trauma? Are you angry because you can no longer tie your shoes?

No worries, though, Miracle Country has just the way to cheer you all up. Stopping the attacks? Please, are you new? Come on. In fact, you might be so not new you might've already spent a whole year here! Kiseki is celebrating opening itself up to more dimensions, not that anyone around would understand that's the point.

In the Sakura park, in place of its usual perpetually pink tree, there'll be a massive, multiple-layered cake, decorated in white and, you guessed it, little pink sakura flowers. On top of it there'll be a candle indicating one, and there'll be small tables with plates and utensils to eat the cake if anyone'd like to. There'll be balloons and confetti falling randomly on people all day, as well as native Kisekians passing around party hats.

It seems even the monsters are celebrating, as today any you encounter will be carrying its own cute party hat as well. Not even being a soulless-NPC can stop Miracle Country's festive cheer!]

[Today seemed as though it would be another quiet day in Miracle Country. Mild weather, a peaceful atmosphere, people probably had no idea anything would soon be wrong when they set off to work, school, or a day of goofing around.

Soon it'll be clear it won't be that simple. Creeping out from the forests and from within the lake or ocean, some creatures will set out to attack others. Becoming impossible to stop at the exact moment of this attack, these monsters will set out to steal something important to people: an ability they have, or an important personality trait, which will now take the form of a tangible, brightly glowing light.

The monsters don't seem to want them for themselves, however. They'll either sneak away quickly, and end up hiding what they took in some difficult place, or they'll challenge the owner - or anyone else who'd like to step up and fight - to a battle for the stolen traits or abilities.

If the creatures get away from you, either because they've gone off to hide your skill/trait or because the battle was lost somehow, the owner of what was lost will always be able to find their skill or trait eventually, as their presence will call back to them. Similarly, if they find someone else's lost skill or trait, they'll be able to know it's not their own. Perhaps they'll want to give it back, too, or maybe even keep it for themselves for a while? While they cannot absorb the abilities or traits themselves, it could be a good way to manipulate others or get a favor from them...]

[[Mingle for the lost traits event! Keep in mind the timing, since any new post opened until the 21st will be happening within the context of this event.]]

[action/video | open to everyone]

[Early this morning, before the sun has even risen, Nossan and Stegotchi can be seen setting up a series of objects in the park. And at 8:00am, Nossan opens a video to announce it to Kiseki. He's wearing a white bandana that keeps his ridiculous, apparently damp curls out of his face; a blue t-shirt with his logo on the front, blue shorts with black and yellow stripes, and his regular shoes. He gives a big bow, and smiles cheerily]

Good morning everyone! It's the second Monday of October, so that means it's Health and Sports Day!

[He sweeps an arm back and shows off what he's created: a small open sports area! He's built an elaborate obstacle course, including a tire-jumping section, monkey bars over a crude mud pit, tunnels, and everything else besides; he's set up gym mats, weighted gym balls and a wide range of dumbells; a small table, currently being lounged on by Stegotchi, has a pair of gigantic coolers, full of fruit and bottles of water, and a large, bulging sack; and everything is enclosed in an 8-lane chalk race track, with a number of sacks and lengths of rope next to the starting line. Everything looks very well-made, albeit made of spare parts and recycled material]

[He grins broadly] I've been helping set this event up back home for years now, and my niece Rika loved it to bits! But since I can't be there now, I decided to bring Sports day here! Stegotchi and I set up lots of things, so everyone can come along and join in some fun events. You're all completely welcome, so let's get together and have a good time! It'll be su-port fun! [big ol' thumbs up!, on which the video ends]

[[Take this as a big mingle journal as well :D ]]

Oct. 7th, 2014



[The video opens on a young girl standing in what appears to be Sakura Park. Despite seeming calm, there's an air of anxiety around her.]


[She seems a little unsure as to whether it's actually working or not. The ladies told her that she could make her own movers and send it to everyone with a journal. She reasoned that it's the fastest way to find help. So she launches right in and gets straight to the point.]

My name is Jinora and I'm new here. The ladies at the Welcome Center told me I could talk to other people using this journal, so I hope it works.

[A little of her anxiety shines through before she pulls herself back to the issue at hand.]

They couldn't answer some of my questions, but do you know if there's a way to find out if my friends and family are okay? This journal has a feature where I can broadcast my voice, like a radio. Is there a way to send this signal outside of here? They'll need to know that I'm okay, and I have something important to tell them. I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

They also told me that there might be people I know here. If that's true, if you know me, please contact me as soon as you can.

[Quietly:] Thank you.

005 ❄ Video/Action | open to all

[The video starts out with the above image, of a few jack-o-lanterns set up on Snow's teachers desk, and a moment later there's a small, almost self-conscious laugh as she holds up the journal to get a better view.]

I thought it'd be a nice thing for everyone to do today. [Arts and crafts is getting hands-on today, kids.] If you want to carve a pumpkin, come on down to the playground at the school today. We have picnic tables set up for carving, and you can make pumpkins like these here.

Everyone's welcome to join in... I have lots of pumpkins, and with Halloween so near, it'd be great to get into the spirit of it all.

[Anyone passing by the school today, or having seen the video, is free to join in on the pumpkin-carving. Snow's got a big collection of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, and will be handling the actual knives part for the younger kids -- and strictly supervising the older ones (and, lbr, the adults too)

And she's set up some other Halloween activities, such as making ghosts, and of course there are some some treats and goodies for anyone who doesn't want to put in too much effort]

[ooc: this is open for basic mingling, too, should you so desire!]

⚡ 012 action

[It's a lazy afternoon in the Spirit Base. Ucchii has a special project in mind, and he is cheerfully arranging many colorful skeins of yarn on the table in the center of the common area, as well as some knitting needles in both adult and child sizes. He also has a big book called "Beginning Knitting", open to the first page. As soon as he's set everything up he takes a moment to survey the work space and then disappears into the kitchen to prepare some snacks.

Once he has the tea, fresh fruit, and cookies added, he pulls up one of the dinosaur-themed lawn chairs next to the table and goes to knock on Lilo's door to fetch her.]

Lilo-dono, I have prepared a surprise for you!

[He did promise they would learn together, after all.]

[ooc: Feel free to tag Ucchii in this post if your character is likely to drop by the Spirit Base. Ucchii is also open for video/written tags.]

[Ever since the start of this week, you may have noticed a change in the weather and the general mood of Kiseki. Yes, summer is over. While it was really quite warm following up to this week, this week it's a little cooler, a little crisper - and other than the sakura tree that's always in bloom, all the other trees in the park and forests have begun to change color and fall. Fall is here in Miracle Country!

This week, maybe you need a little adjusting. Need to buy some warmer clothes? Have a sudden urge to eat something pumpkin-flavored or caramel-flavored? There are piles of leaves to hop into, maybe.

And throughout this week, the crisp, clear skies may cloud over and it'll start to drizzle, and sometimes even just rain. It'll drizzle throughout the day with some sun breaks, but it's definitely a clear indication of the change in the seasons.

But when it's not raining, and your character feels like exploring, they'll find literal cornicopias of fruits and vegetables all throughout the garden island, the park, and the forests. Sample them for yourselves, or perhaps make a pie with them.

Autumn is a time of harvest and abundance but also a time of waning sunlight and longer nights... so perhaps you feel that shift in the air, and are left reflecting on it.

Regardless, autumn is here.]

001 ☯ Action/Video | open to all

[So it's a nice start to the weekend, and maybe you're looking for something to do. Fear not, because perhaps you get it in your mind to explore some of the islands. Should you find your way to the sports island, you'll find a lot of fun opportunities to have some fun: sports courts, fully-equipped gym, ice rink, a giant frickin' swimming pool...

Wanting to have some fun? Work-out? Scope out the hot eye candy working out? Harass the workers? Plenty of opportunity for all these things and more.

Korra, for her part, is one such worker who's in the process of collecting some stray basketballs rolling across the court. Eventually, she gets tired of trying to herd the things so she just sends out a massive airbending attack!!1 to get all the balls rolling in one direction... of course, then they just bounce off the walls, hitting it too hard, and start bouncing all over the place.]

... Geez. [Stop that.]

[She starts airbending again but the basketballs all have their own thoughts and keep bouncing around everywhere.

And then all of a sudden there's a giant polar bear dog bounding in through the front doors and across the court, trying to catch all of them at once. This isn't totally unlike her, though, so Korra what did you expect?]

Naga! Wait - ! [and that's when the video ends.]

[[ooc: this is open for a basic mingle, as well. Come over to the sports island and have fun!]]
