[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))

[It had been a few minutes since Beat had arrived in the wonderful world of Kiseki and already he's started to create a ruckus. He'd just been escorted out of the Welcome Center but even then he puts up a fight, waving his fist in the air, his feet dragging against the ground. At some point, his journal had fallen out of his hands, opening and recording the following]

Yo! I didn't ask for this, aight? I'm done with all that crap 'bout UG. This place don't even look like UG, man! What gives? [Clearly he wasn't listening at all when he was being briefed about Kiseki.] You think I'm aight with you bastards pullin' me outta RG jus' when I got back? Hell naw!

'Sides, I gotta... [He quiets down for a moment, almost looking pensive. But even that doesn't last for long.] I gotta go back, aight? Don't matter what the reason is. I jus' want outta your stupid game. If I gotta bust some heads or rip someone a new one to get outta this, then bring it, yo! I ain't scared a' any of you.

[And then he proceeds punching at the air again. Looks like he's more bark than actual bite... But he pauses when the Welcome Center ladies start talking again. All at once. ]

...The hell you talkin' 'bout? I ain't pickin' up nothin' you sayin' if you keep talkin' like that. I said slow down, yo!

[There is one thing he hears clearly though. But his brows knit together upon hearing it.]

I don't care 'bout no Chad or his shiverin' pussies none, either! [Yeeeeep.]

[With the last shreds of cake dissolving and leaving the usual sakura tree back in place, things seem to slowly be going back to normal again. Or as normal as it can be in Miracle Country, anyway. The monsters are finally gone, allowing those who are still searching for their lost things to get them back in peace.

While the decorations, confetti and such are gone, there might be something else people will notice. Hair, lots of thin white strands of fur falling from seeming everywhere... Aang is flying around on Appa, who seems to be in need of a good brushing. So when he notices Appa is shedding all over the place, he'll take a detour towards one end of the park so he can take care of his bison properly.]

[[ooc: open mingle! if you want aang, comment to his tag here, otherwise abuse the post as you'd like.]]

[Is that on your journals Miko all gagged and tied to a tree? Yes, that's Miko all gagged and tied to a tree.

Now, the question is why. Simple: after finding out what King had been doing, she found a way to sneak past her army of guardians and uncles and go yell at him. Or challenge him to a duel. Or both.

The point is that this is how it all ended. She isn't hurt, in case you're wondering, but for her to tell you all of that, she needs to be freed.

Help, Kiseki?]

Hey, hey, are you joking? There’s no way -- …… -- I don’t care about -- ……… -- just tell me where -- ……… [At first, there’s nothing but this short audio file, the words interrupted with static, making the speech disjointed and nearly unintelligible. The static gets louder, and soon there’s a sound of what sounds like a hundred tasers activating at once, a snap and the sound of glass shattering – and for a while, that’s it.

But, never fear, citizens of Kiseki: soon there’s a video feed appearing in your journals, of the hospital lobby, with a ton of candles spread all around it, because for some reason, all the lightbulbs are broken. The video shows a guy with flaming orange hair wearing a black tracksuit and sunglasses (yes, sunglasses, even though it’s dark enough that his face is barely visible in the video), clearing his throat and starting to speak in a manner that can only be described as grandiose.]

My fellow prisoners! Your tragic circumstances have just been brought to my attention! Oh, how my heart weeps for you, all alone and stranded here in a strange world! But there is no need for despair… yes, because Lord Lemon is here to help you!

[A dramatic pause, to make sure everyone understands he’s talking about himself.] There’s a story of a fisherman in Yokohama, who spent all his savings on a new boat. But the next night, there was a storm, and his boat sunk! But the fisherman didn’t let that get him down. Instead, he marched to the loan office, threatened them with a gun and stole enough money to get a new boat!

[He feigns wiping a tear.] A truly inspirational story! So remember…

[There’s another pause, for full dramatic effect:]

When life gives you lemons… reject them and make orange juice instead!

[Birthday grins, tossing a battery he’s been holding in his hand up in the air, catching it and—yep, biting on it as the feed cuts off.]

[[ooc: the lost traits event is going on, so if you want to action it up that is a-okay!! Birthday won't lose anything, at least not yet.]]

[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.]]

[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 ]]

[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.]

[After having some time apart and realizing this whole "being trapped in another world" thing wasn't going to be over any time soon, David & Mary Margaret meet once again, managing to scream less this time. They're both so done with all of this, emotionally exhausted from all the new information, the people they can't remember, the fact that everyone around them insists they're happily married and have a family together.

The journal records them as they're back in their old room, going through their belongings in an attempt to have something trigger their supposedly lost memories. Mary Margaret goes through some assorted pictures, some of the two of them together, others with the kids (adopted or not). Her expression turns sadder again, so David goes sit closer to her, glancing at the pictures too. She smiles, getting wibbly again despite her efforts to keep calm.]

We looked so... [She makes a little gesture at the pictures, trying to get him to understand.]

Happy? [He finishes for her, getting the idea. Agrees, too, reaching to take one of the pics and look at it better, silent for a moment] [...] It's all I wanted to have. For us to have.

[Mary Margaret looks up at him, even more visibly emotional at his words. He starts to mumble an apology, but trails off as they just stare at each other... They move at the same moment to kiss, and the moment they do, a wave of light rushes through the air, expanding all across Kiseki. When they break apart, they look shocked.]

Snow...! [He reaches for her, pulling her closer, starting to smile.]

Charming...! [She does the same, holding to him and beaming up at him.]

[They don't even get to the you found me!1! usual lines, they're too busy kissing again.]

[[OOC: And they're back! The True Love's Kiss (TM) power will send a wave of happiness and good feelings all across the island. No grumpiness for a while! The log is a mingle, so feel free to tag each other on your own. Snow & David will have their own tags to hit if you'd like to talk to them.]]
