001 ❀ Action | open to all

[Today, perhaps you're traveling from the main island to check out one of the outer islands - there's one island in particular, the wings island, is suddenly seeming more inviting than usual. Perhaps you feel a strange urge to visit the island with the wings, to walk along the sand, to stand at the reservoir and stare down into the water.

It's one of those weeks in which the outer islands have moved close enough to join the main island, so it's a simple enough walk - no trains required today - and if you stand near enough and just let the wind brush through your hair, you might feel the slightest kiss of sand traveling across the two islands, inviting you closer.

And as you get closer to that island, closer to those ruins, you might start to feel the effects of that island, as well - thinking of your family, of your friends, of all those who are precious and important to you... and suddenly, that bond you share feels like the only thing you can think of.

And in response to a recent arrival, it seems there are sakura petals falling everywhere you look. Not a lot, just enough to spark that memory - of someone familiar, of someone important, perhaps... or perhaps no one at all.

[[ooc: please feel free to use this as a mingle - Sakura's actual intro will be the first comment to this entry, should you wish to interact with her specifically.]]

[Action/Accidental video]
[There's some pacing going on, here, and there has been for a little while. Someone's...talking to themselves? Riiiiight...]

Okay, Anna. It's okay. So you've been kidnapped! That's...that's fine. [There's some nervous laughter for a second.] Everything's let's just calm down, and--bwah?!

[...And that's when she gets close enough to the WC ladies for them to cheerily bid her "welcome!"...something she wasn't expecting seriously at all. Startled, she jumps back with that aforementioned undignified yelp. Unperturbed, the WC ladies continue with their explanation and hand her a journal.]

...Wait, wait! You want me to use this? For that? Really? But that's the craziest thing I've ever--! [...Okay, that's not exactly a princess-y reaction. Pause. There's a small sigh before she clears her throat and offers a little curtsy.] ...I mean, um. Thank you...very much? For your...assistance. [I guess. :x;;;]

[Obviously confused and a little lost, she wanders over to a bench and starts writing in the journal.]

[The words are written in neat script, nice-looking but a little shaky, and there are several words scribbled out before anything legible is written.]

Can anyone actually see this? Please tell me someone can see this. The people here haven't exactly been that helpful, so I'm kind of confused.

I need to How do I get back home? I was kind of in the middle of something, um...really, really important. [S-sigh, Elsa...she pauses for a minute, biting her lip, before writing more.] ...And I'd like to get back to it! [uh] Sooner would be better than later.

[...] So, um. Please let me know if you can help.

[There is a video recording of the town before it swivels around and Sherlock's face appears. He doesn't look entirely vexed or surprised, but his mouth is maybe a little tight.]

I suppose it was only a matter of time before I found myself once more abducted into this world. By my count it's been eight months, however I'll wager it's been less than that according to the time flow here.

To the point, then. I am Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective and mentor of young minds, specifically on the subject of biological sciences. If we are already acquainted and you are still trapped here, I wish our reunion was under much different circumstances. If you are newly arrived in this place and are yet unfamiliar with it's antics, my sympathies. You'll learn soon enough why.

I'll waste no more of anyone's time. This is a simple announcement to all students that my class will be resuming starting tomorrow. Disregard previous assignments, and come prepared with your books as we shall be starting our next lesson on the Chelydra serpentina. Better known as the common snapping turtle . For non-achidemic purposes, should you have need of me I shall be at this- [turns the journal around so it records the library before focusing around back to his face] -location for the next hour or two. I am open to conversing so long as the topic isn't dull, and your company stimulating as opposed to irritating.

[Stares at the journal, then nods before the recording ends.]


♪ ~ Arrival [Text/Open]

Hi, my name is Raimu Bito. You can call me Rhyme.( ´ ▽ ` )ノ If you're reading this, then I guess I did this right. I won't really know until someone replies though, so if you're not busy, can you please write back? I'd really appreciate it!

[Rhyme lightly taps the end of her pen against her chin as she considers what else to write. It doesn't seem right to end it just like that. She wonders if there's any point in asking if anyone has seen her brother, but there's really ho harm in trying, right? And nothing ventured nothing gained so...]

Also, have any of you seen a guy named Beat around here? I don't know if he was brought here too, but he's my brother. He has blonde hair and blue eyes and is probably carrying his skateboard. If you've seen him, can you tell him that I'm here too? I don't think he'll pay any attention to his journal.

[Rhyme laughs as she writes that last part.]

Thank you very much!(^_^)

002 ☯ Written

Filtered to Asami; unhackable )

[She's concentrated enough to make this next part completely anonymous: there's no pictures, no way to identify her through the writing. It's all filtered away.]

What do you do if you're seeing things that aren't actually there? If you can't sleep, if you keep getting nightmares, if you keep remembering all the stupid things from the past? [The island she's camping out on isn't helping that, but she doesn't know that.]

Is there a magical solution?

[Bending isn't doing any good, nothing at home was doing any good, going to the Tree of Time did nothing. She knows she has to figure it out on her own, but, maybe there's a solution that she can find here...?]

How do you know you're not just going crazy?

[All replies, except to Asami, will be filtered like the entry - there won't be a way to identify it as Korra unless she identifies herself personally (castmates past her canonpoint can feel free to guess it's her, if they have the ability to do so)]

video & action

[ Three years. Jinora hasn't seen Miracle Country in three years. She'd completely forgotten until she appeared in the Welcome Center again. The names and faces started surfacing. Her stomach twists unpleasantly. It's been three years for her, but how long has it been for them? Are they even still here or does she have to start over? Jinora takes a deep, calming breath. Things back home weren't great, but they could wait now that she's sure that time does in fact stop for her. ]

[ So she faces the matter at hand and addresses the network yet again, this time three years older and an Airbending master. But, like before, she's sitting in front of the cherry blossom tree in Sakura Park. ]

Hello [a slight smile] again. I'm sorry if I worried anyone. It's been three years for me, but I think it's only been a few days here. Time in Miracle Country isn't very straightforward.

If you've never met me, my name is Jinora. If you have, I'd really like to hear from you.

[ She turns off the video and leans against the tree, waiting for replies or maybe even visitors. ]

[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))

[what's up Kiseki, apparently information gathering is the only thing Ian will ever use this journal for]

Good morning, Miracle Country~ [Just like last time, Ian opens up with a kiss blown to the journal. For anyone particularly skilled in empathy or identifying someone wearing a fake smile, it might be rather obvious that his heart isn't really in this.]

I don't think I really need to say anything about the situation with those monsters, but I hope that everyone has made it through safely. I'm a bit late in saying this, but... If ever something happens where you need a hand, please feel free to contact me, or any of the other Kyoryugers. It's a bit hard for us to get around here without our usual transport [by which he means two dinosaur mechas that combine to become a motorcycle], but wherever you are, we'll come to you as fast as we can.

[Yeah he feels more than a little bit bad that so many people were successfully attacked by those monsters. Not that there was a whole lot he could have done about it, but... Well. It's not the first time he's failed in his desire to protect, and on this date in particular the failure stings just a bit more - the fact that these monsters are thieves is just really the salt on the wound.]

In the meantime... Just how many are there that have had something taken away by those monsters? I know it might be a bit much to ask for some who have been affected, but knowing our statistics in this could help us be better prepared for anything that happens in the future. If you were attacked, or if they managed to take something from you, it would help if you could let me know.

[There's a little bit of a wave, as if he's just casually saying goodbye at the end of a video call. It's really the best way for him to think of these journals, like they're a Kiseki-wide Skype call.] Take care, everyone.

006 ❄ Video

[Someone is looking incredibly disappointed in all of you, Kiseki. Beware, you have unleashed the Disappointed Parent look.]

I cannot believe that I have to say this, and yet here I am. Under no circumstances is it acceptable to tie a girl to a tree, especially when there are monsters running around. Especially when she's a minor. Especially when it's an adult doing so. Nor is it alright to hold someone down while someone else punches them. Nor is it alright to outright punch someone. None of this is alright. We're all civilized people here.

I expect so much more from all of you. [And the more she talks, the louder her voice is becoming - where she's usually calm and patient, it's clear she's rattled and on the edge of yelling]

I do not have time to hunt everyone down and have them behave, but I'd like to think that, while we're all visitors in this world, we can maintain some decorum of diplomacy and good will.

[And here she just looks frazzled since bb!Neal, whom she's cradling as she scolds, starts to fuss -- sensing his mother's distress] I am breastfeeding and I haven't gotten a decent night's sleep in months and I don't think it's so much to ask that everyone treat everyone else with patience and respect.

[...] [She looks like she's going to shut off the video, but then she turns and records the very destroyed huge cake provided by the world]

And just who shot this cake? [behold her fiery vengeance on the cake's behalf; someone may or may not have lost her patience due to the event, which is only making her frustration worse]

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.
