4th wall event second log || action || open to all



[Our 4th wall event continues! It's been a few days since the worlds of Kiseki opened up to let others in for some time, although it hasn't stopped - new arrivals keep dropping in, perhaps only to be distressed to know they've already missed a few days of their stay here. But of course, with our residents and new visitors here to receive them, it should be a little easier, right?

By now, there's been some time to adjust to the changes - knowing that they're in a new world, that those with a Mokona pin will stay here for a brief time and return to wherever they were once their pin changes from black to white; while those who lack them (and instead generally carry the typical local, magically connected-journals) are here to stay for longer. Perhaps the visitors wish they could change this, but it's a decision removed from them.

Of course, not everything has to be sadness - Kiseki is celebrating these arrivals, the trees from the islands still blooming in pink sakura everywhere, and there're opportunities to exploit now that most of the initial shocks, meetings and tears have passed. Kiseki offers many places to visit and explore, and why miss the chance to do so? Will you be playing something at the Sports island with a friend? Or maybe trying out the pool there? Do you feel like checking out its library, or simply staying in the underground rooms below the hotels' area to watch a movie or have some quiet time. Perhaps you don't care much for walking around and would rather enjoy a friend or loved one's company while hanging out at the Sakura Park, near its lake and river, or head down to the beach. Maybe you'd like to take a boat ride, or take the chance to ride a flying train? There's even the amusement park, or the zoo with its strange creatures. There's the garden island with its ever-changing flora, and the deep forests, with its caves and a strange, large skeleton lying deep in it. Watch out for any creatures, local and visitors, that might be lurking around, though!

You could even visit the places run by those who stay here long-term, if their workers have showed up despite the general chaos, or if they simply know you and wish to let you see them! The school where several people attend and teach, the (also very pink) Cherry Blossom Café, the Candy Shop, the Bakery, The Bar, the Sheriff Office... Hell, it's a great time to suggest actual names for these places, too. A good chance to bond with the owners.

And really, take your chances now - time is surely passing, and many of those pins must be almost halfway white by now! Enjoy your stay while it lasts...]

[Days later, and it's finally time to reveal the big mystery of the Mokona notes found around! To those who experienced this before, it might seem like it was obvious from the start, once they realize what's up...

Of course, we mean the 4th Wall Event is starting right now! For anyone awake, there'll be a burst of pink everywhere - the trees in all the islands are changing to sakura trees as is the usual for Kiseki celebrations. If sudden pink isn't enough to call people's attentions by now, it's likely the added noise and crowds might... Floating lanterns will appear around as well, meant to guide along our new visitors, who will be arriving starting at midnight! The Welcome Center will be busier than ever, but of course people may appear in other locations throughout the islands.

Like last time, visitors will arrive with a small Mokona pin that will first be colored black but will start turning white as the days go by. Once the Mokona turns white, by the 25th, it’ll sprout wings, open a portal, and send your new friends back. The pins will appear on them automatically, but they'll receive the traditional Usyagi welcome (our local creepy flying bunnies), who will give a quick, vague explanation of where they are and why they're here. One thing is clear - those wearing the pin are only here temporarily... Unless circumstances change, of course.

Our visitors will have their clothes magically changed into a comfortable yukata, matching the summer weather (they may keep their usual clothes and possessions they might've been carrying), and as a treat during the first day, there will be blankets and pillows set out around the main island's park, where picnic baskets full of all sorts of food will be available for anyone who wishes to simply relax with friends and loved ones. Or maybe it's a good way to break the news of being temporarily stuck in a different world to a new friend! Perhaps those used to this land should warn them about the risks of consuming food this world provides, although they might be lucky and left to enjoy the small celebrations in peace for a while.

Maybe they won't be so lucky, however, and end up arriving with some company! People who show up at the forests might end up followed by some creature from their own worlds (dangerous or not - think anything from Harry Potter being followed by a three-headed dog, to Aang finding himself surrounded by penguin-seals)... The forests' barriers luckily would keep anything too dangerous trapped in their depths, but these visitors might need a little help for a while, likely a good chance for the fighters and healers around to shine. Should anyone require assistance and not have it, the Usyagi will help by alerting those in the main islands about it.

Whatever it is people get up to, ten days go by pretty fast... So make sure to make the most out of it!]

[When you're an immortal alien gem race who has never even been introduced to the concept of illness it's no surprise that when Lapis starts feeling sick she has no idea what it means. As far as she can tell her gem is fine, unscratched and perfect... but it doesn't explain why she feels even more exhausted than she did holding Malachite together-

... Alright maybe that's on a completely different level, but it sure is close.

Maybe being near water will help and that's where she's headed, but it's a shaky journey to the beach for the water witch. What's worse is she can hardly remember the way there, the pounding in her head and the dizziness that sends her swaying from side to side makes it hard to recall which turn to take or what landmark looks familiar. She's absolutely sure the fix for whatever... this is must be the ocean. She'll feel better when she can touch the water... definitely.

Until then there is a very obviously unwell Lapis stumbling dangerously in one direction or another throughout town. If she's even close to the beach she has no idea.]

Almost... almost there...

001 ⚔ Action | open to all

[A few days ago, you might have gotten a pretty little invitation slipping underneath the door to your hotel room. The message? "Connie's Violin Concert, in the park at [time] - look for her under the blooming sakura tree!"

And sure enough, here she is, should you choose to head on over. It's a task she needs to complete in order to keep her violin. It's hardly a fancy violin by any means, but she likes it well enough and certainly more than needing to buy a new on in order to practice.

It's a simple little set up: a little blanket set out for her and a chair to sit in, plus a few chairs set up for any guests who want to stay and listen. There's even a little table she set up with refreshments. Nothing too fancy - some lemonade, and a few snacks she got from the Cherry Blossom Cafe.

At the appointed time, blushing a little and looking a bit nervous - her hands are shaking a bit, but not badly - Connie will start playing some songs on the violin! She'll even take some requests.

Feel free to come watch her, or to notice her as she passes by (or interact amongst yourselves, just be sure to keep your voice down during the actual concert itself).

Afterwards, a very flushed and flustered - but pleased - Connie will be packing her violin back up and looking like she might want to retreat. >_> But if you wanted to talk to her...]

[Surely many of our residents are more than familiar with the Cherry Blossom Café, the cozy little place currently run by Syaoran, and the Candy shop which Lancelot is now in charge of. The CBC is difficult to ignore, with its pink theme, and the candy shop being so close-by means most people would've noticed it at least in passing...

Well, it seems Miracle Country decided that having them so close but apart was a bit of a waste, and so, if you go to these shops today, you'll notice some changes. Both places will now be connected by a large patio, where a small sakura tree is now growing. Aside from tables set out for anyone who wants to enjoy the shops' food, there's a pretty fountain to one side of it, and while you can simply walk through the patio itself, there's now a small, cute bridge connecting both places, signaling their cooperation from now on.

To celebrate this union, there'll be themed items available in both places , with the CBC carrying a special selection to honor the candy shop's last owner. Yes, today it's a very sweet menu for both places...

And just in time, too. The tradition of giving a candy in exchange for a kiss is back, and so our helpful (?)Usyagi will be handing out cute flyers of the newly connected shops to people who might not know of the change, along with a free sample of candy, so they'll go and give them a try. Of course, the invitation also reminds people of the tradition, and encourages them to give it a try. Even the grumpy or apathetic ones might find themselves really wanting to hand out candy to others, or reluctantly giving a kiss in exchange for any they're offered themselves, even if they might not usually be so keen on the idea.]

[[Our workers can be found here, here, and here, otherwise feel free to mingle among yourselves! Threads don't have to happen in the shops' areas either, as the event covers the whole place.]]

[It’s been a long few weeks with the dragons, and as the days pass it’s clear that the Alpha is getting worse and worse despite the dragons’ efforts, and the efforts of those who were willing to help him in the first place. It starts out simple, the Alpha just sleeping more and more, his breathing coming out in wheezing gasps. Then, slowly, the Alpha stops moving so much, hardly reacts to any food or medicine.

But with every passing day the Alpha gets worse, the world around you starts to get worse, in turn. Plants start dying. Water starts drying up. It stays darker for longer. There might have been a few cave-ins towards the back of the tunnels.

It’s finally too much, though, and when the Alpha does die, it lets out one final, earth-shaking roar before it collapses and bursts into a wave of sakura petals. With that, the world around the Alpha dies as well – the bridges collapsing, the caves starting to fold into themselves, the island crumbling into the water as the regular Miracle Country returns to itself.

Be very mindful of where you are, then – because the world is going to change back. Trapped in the caves with the cave-in? You may be there a while. Were you in the reservoir? Then you might find yourself suddenly at the Wings Island. The forests, the top of the Ferris Wheel at the Amusement Park, stuck on the stairs of the lighthouse at the beach – you could appear anywhere. Everyone is scattered around and it’s not likely you’ll be lucky enough to show up in the park or the hotels.

It’ll be difficult to get back, though – because there’s a heavy wind blowing all over the islands today. Reacting to the sudden shift from one world to another, Miracle Country is still trying to adapt, and the wind is strong enough to push you off your feet if you’re not careful. That, and it’s raining sakura petals all over, which might make it difficult to see. There are respites and places to shade yourself from the onslaught – little alcoves, buildings, the forests – but that might mean little when you’re trying to find your friends and family, after all.

The Miracle Country you know and love isn’t completely untouched despite the sudden change, however – while the dragons’ world might have dissolved along with the Alpha, the remnants still appear in certain spots. Some of the dragons survive the sudden switch and now live in the forests. There are a few caves left over within the forest, the path in the first layer leading towards it.

And, most striking, there is a large skeleton deep in the forest – the final resting place for the Alpha Dragon.]

[Days with dragons have hardly made the nights easier – the strange way the dragons’ eyes glow from the shadows, the way the fog rolls in at the night, the sound of far cries from the dragons as they fly just beyond sight, that deep grumbling from the sleeping Alpha Dragon, the way it just steadily grows colder and colder as the night progresses.

This night is no different. It starts with a sunset, blazing and bright, the shadows stretching long and lingering. And once it’s gone, dusk passing, the night creeps in. The fog grows thick and those sounds come again. Dragons rustling, dragons calling, the nocturnal dragons large and difficult to spot – never seen during the day and seeming so strange, perhaps a little less friendly than the ones who come out during the day.

The air grows colder still, so it might be a good idea to collect wood for a large fire, to find a place to stay warm and safe. Or maybe you’re feeling adventurous. Maybe you need water. Maybe you need to find something fun to do, just for the sake of doing it. Maybe you’ve lost your way as the day draws to an end and you’re desperate to get back.]

[Time to deal with Kiseki's menacing creatures again! Except this time, they might not be so menacing. The lake and river are a little more lively than usual, as the fish population in them has increased overnight. Some of them aren't even freshwater fish, so what are they doing there? Not waiting to attack anybody, no.

All along the park and the river banks, there are fishing rods and other tools set up, as well as anything you'd need to get a fire going, and grill your food... You get the point, I'm sure. Whether you want to have an outdoors lunch of freshly caught fish, or wish to stock up on them for later, or even want to try and keep one of them as a pet, it's clear today is meant to be spent by the water. Just in case, the Usyagi will notify anyone who's missing out on the fish gutting fun, so no worries there.

To the delight of certain questionable residents, there's a bonus brought by the presence of the fish... Most of Kiseki's roaming stray cats will be drawn to the river and lake, either to catch their own meal or to steal some from the people around. So if you're not much of a fishing person, or can't cook at all, you could still hang out with them.]

P'kyuu?

[This is the image that will greet you if you answer the journal's calling about a new entry tonight. Ao has found Shinah's journal, and she's evidently considered as close enough to Shinah himself to be allowed to use it... Which means she managed to turn the video function on while nibbling on it.]

[Behind Ao's curious face, however, there's some commotion in Yona's room. Apparently Shinah & co. are caught up in some kind of argument, or maybe just being ridiculous, or, quite possibly, both. Shinah himself, dressed in fluffy moon-patterned pyjamas, is trying to get outside through a window, while Yona holds to his arm and refuses to allow such a thing. The others, some also with sleeping clothes on, are engaged in an enthusiastic discussion the journal can't easily catch...

Perhaps it'd be easier to simply walk by the open hotel room, and try to overhear what they're all saying.]

[[Open log! Interact with Yona and her dragons, or do your own thing! And yes, you can reply to Ao on the journal too, and have the most ridiculous thread. The HHB be here: Yona | Shinah | Zeno | Jaeha | Kija ]]

[The video happens outdoors. There's a blond boy who you might not have seen before, surrounded by a couple of Usyagi as he pets them happily. He seems relaxed. He's actually waiting for someone to find him, his soul and presence is reaching out to three people in particular. You can't tell that by the video, of course.

They'll find him. This time he's letting them get to him first. They never got to search for him formally anyway, so it's fine. But just in case, it's good to have a backup plan since he's starting to get hungry. He stops playing with the bunnies with one hand, and waves at his journal.]

Hello, hello~! Where can I get some food? Or is it hard to find?

Hey, Happy Hungry Bunch, Zeno is here! I can feel Hakuryuu and Seiryuu and Ryokuryuu, so come find me.
