[For someone that can survey the islands in a matter of several minutes thanks to her power, it doesn't take Robin long to determine there's no reason to search further--as it's clear that Porthos is indeed very gone.

So her journal records her at the library, while she's at first with her eyes closed and her arms crossed over her chest... until she drops them with a small sigh and then notices the little light at the table next to her. When she addresses it, her words are directed at the journal rather than at anyone watching.]

Ahh, at it again? That's a rude thing to do.

[If she smiled at the recording, it's very brief before she cuts it off with:] But I'm sure you're aware of what it means to do such rude things, hm?

007 ❄ Action || open to all

[As early as last month, the invitations were sent out. Now that things are more resolved, Snow’s finally making good on a promise she made a little while ago – and throwing a grand, lavish party at the ballroom. It’s exactly as you would expect a ball to be like – there’s a large dance floor, fancy music, winter-themed decorations, and a large table full of food and drink.

You’re expected to dress up – but don’t worry, Miracle Country is chipping in and if it deems that you haven’t dressed fancy enough, a little magic will interfere and dress you up.

It seems that the world wants to get into the spirit of things – albeit belatedly. Because there’s little mistletoe plants that will appear throughout the night and throughout the party, inside and out, to get you into the belated holiday spirit: being caught under this mistletoe will leave you frozen until someone comes along to save you. Once two people are under the mistletoe, a wall of vines will emerge from nowhere, wrapping the two up in order to give you two some privacy. Or make you hate vines. Or both. The two of you will not be able to move from this spot until you complete the task set to you.

Being caught under this mistletoe will leave you with a few choices, which the mistletoe will let you know. In order to get free, you will have to do one of the following:
beneath the cut )

Beyond these shenanigans, you’re free to enjoy your evening – there’s dancing, beautiful scenery, delicious food, and plenty of good company. The ball will last mid-afternoon and well into the night, and the end of the party will be signaled by some pretty fireworks (a modest display, of course, as Snow isn’t made of money).

Be sure to attend, otherwise later you might have a disappointed Snow to deal with.]

001 | Not nearly as creative as Bushy, the Bush Spirit

[[The journal opens as it lands in the ground, showing first shins, then knees, then finally a face as Wan sat down in front of it's open pages after the strange ladies showed up and handed him the book.]]

Um... hello?

[[He rubbed the back of his head, eyes wide from both confusion and a lack of sleep.]]

I was told I should... talk... into a strange book thing... I'm being tricked by the spirits aren't I? The women that brought this were just... some strange vision they made me see.

[[He put his head into his hands and let out a long sigh.]]

I just want to eat without half the forest trying to kill me. I know I saw an oasis just now. It had fruit and clear water. Just let me have a little. I won't cause any trouble. I swear. I'll be quiet and stay away from the spirit-wasps if there's a nest there. I won't step on any frogs. I'll be careful.

I wouldn't be out here if I didn't have to be. If there were anywhere else for me to go, I'd go there. But there isn't.

I haven't slept all night. I haven't eaten in days.

[It’s been a few days now since the Bridge Event wore off, but there are some faces who have been conspicuously absent]

Cut for Legend of Korra finale spoilers )

[ooc: Joint post with Korra & Asami, and they'll both be tagging around accordingly. If you'd rather have just one or the other, let us know in an ooc comment! There is also Mako's re-intro in the comments, which is free for threadjacking.]

Video | Action

This is so not how I envision beauty rest.

[ Well someone is awake after a long sleep. Moving outside of a building, Ty Lee's only just awoken from a sleep coma, and if anything she's not amused. In fact, she's still trying to get her bedhead under control. Redoing her braid, she frowns unhappily. ]

I didn't miss anything fun, did I?

[ Pretty much an understatement. If not contacted back through the network, she can be found stretching. Feeling stiff after sleeping for what feels like forever, she feels like she needs to move. Bending over backwards and walking on her hands, she immediately sets about getting herself back into her usual groove. ]

[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))

action || open to everyone

[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.]]

[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!]

[ action || open to everyone ]

[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.]
