Why - why would Acumen arrest a ghost? I don't think it makes much sense...Ghosts should be able to move on, right? I don't think it's fair to keep one here with m-me - with people. [does she sound a bit stressed?]

I really, really, really hope Acumen doesn't arrest any more...That would be the worst.

[Anyone who passes through Sector 1 will see Sakura slowly inching along the way. She's just left the headquarters and she's on her way home. It's dark and she looks more than unhappy being outside. In fact, she even has her wand out - just in case.]

[ooc: there is a 99.99% chance that Sakura will flail and accidentally hit you with her wand if you sneak up on her in the dark. She's had a traumatic day okay]

[Backdated to Late Morning]

It's My Party )

[Video | Filtered from the Order, except Allen and Lenalee]

[Alma is grinning into the screen, but he also looks a bit embarrassed.]

So it's getting a lot warmer around here. That means it's summer right? Or almost. June! Which is what is important. [He laughs and scratches the back of his head.]

June is a very important month. My best friend is born in June so his birthday should be around now and that means my birthday was a while ago, but neither of us have ever gotten to celebrate a birthday together. Which sucks. But today we will! Because I'm throwing a birthday party for him--us--tonight at the hall in the Education Center.

But I don't know all of Yu's friends here, so anybody who wants to say happy birthday to Yu Kanda should really come! There will be cake, food, drinks, balloons, and maybe even a singing-game like at the club! [The karaoke machine, he has it. He just has to figure out how to get it to work.]

So if you want to come celebrate our birthdays, show up before six o'clock! Just don't tell Yu. I really want to surprise him. And Yu doesn't like gifts, so don't worry about it unless you really want to!

[And with a happy grin he cuts it off and moves on to his next call.]

[Private to Yu]

Hey, Yu... Are you busy today?

{OOC: I will be putting in a [Video] thread where anyone who wants to respond to the video post can. Otherwise you can respond with [Before] or [Party] to let people know when you get there? Feel free to be brought by the friend of a friend, crash, and mingle all you like!}

[New kid on the block happens to be shouting loud enough for those around to hear. And those listening in on their devices too.]

DON’T TOUCH ME! I ordered you to maintain a distance so why aren't you maintaining it?! If you come any closer, I'll end your very existence! --What the hell are you, anyway?

... I said STOP! Stupid thing, are you hard of hearing?!

[There appears to be a sixteen-year-old boy shouting and pointing at one of Marina's fine, upstanding bots! ... Who looks like it just wants to do its job around the dining hall and usher the loud boy out of the way.]

[It's past nightfall, and yet the sky is a rich sunset orange, lit by an entire city ablaze. All around are the signs of a battle, soldiers wearing both colors run through and left to rot in the road. These are the men no one cares about; that's why they were sent here. The chances of survival at Rutenberg are near to zero.]

[And yet, a soldier stumbles out of the smoke. He's beaten and bloody but he carries his sword with a tight grip, knowing he may need it at any time. Conrad's hair is longer, his expression devoid of anything resembling a smile. Help him, fight him -- he may look at you the same either way.]

((OOC: Memories of Marina will not be present at first, but will begin to surface as threads go on. I can't decide whether he'll be pre- or post- turning; if you have a preference please state it! Otherwise I'll just roll wherever is most fun. ^_^ ))

[It's dark here. The water all around is difficult to see through, but it's possible from the light from a moon that can't be seen, except for a few dark patches. Despite being underwater, breathing is still easy. Should you panic and try to swim to the surface, it's covered in ice. Breaking through is impossible, even though it doesn't seem very thick.

The teen whose dream this is hasn't bothered with trying to escape. He's distracted by the cold and the very heavy scent around him. Those darker patches of water? Aren't water. It's blood, fresh and a lot of it which is taking it's time to disperse.

Lind lets his body hang in the water, both hands near his head. Eyes are tight shut, trying to block out the dream. But he can't, not with the sharp smell of blood bothering him and the feeling of water all around him. It's a memory he hates, that he doesn't want to remember. He's shivering violently, but not moving aside from that. He can't open his eyes, he can't try to find a way out. He's too afraid that he'll find the rest of this memory, of finding her dead...

He grits his teeth, trying not to remember that. Have to block out the memory, had to make it stop...]

[It wasn't every night Kaito got injured, so waking up after (almost) forgetting what happened until he buried his head into his pillow made him yell out a few curses until-- oops. Sloooooowly looks over to check on Gazelle's current state.]

[Event] Night of Floating Lanterns
20 May 2011 at 08:18 pm
[It starts with one light at first, lifting itself from a roof nearest the beach--a solitary lantern glowing and drifting away on the light breeze. From one come many, several burning glows bursting to life and rising up above the trees and the buildings, lanterns of all shapes and sizes floating along like a river of lights. They bob and weave around each other, lightly bumping to change their directions, similar to stars high up near the apex of the dome, the waters below sparkling from the glow.

At the beach there are several tables where inmates may receive a lantern of their own to light and send on its way into the sky, joining the others as they burn through the night.]

[The lanterns are all around the dome, but they will eventually make their way to floating above the waters at the beach. Feel free to see them just about anywhere outdoors! If you want the full effect, check out the full scene from Tangled.]

[Rarity is BEAMING. Clearly, something amazing has happened.]

I had something more formal planned, but I'm so excited I just can't contain it! I have finally crafted my first dress for humans! It took a lot of research, and I know how simple it is, but I think it's a perfect contrast to our surroundings!

[Steps aside, revealing a red dress on a dress form.]

I call it "Fire Flowers Under Waves".

[He's got a bag full of spray paint and already inside the arcade-- just had to wait for Lind. Hopefully the 'starting to get late' aspect was enough to keep kiddies inside.]

((ooc: Quick note! Graffiti-ing up the arcade with random (and probably crude) toons and curse words + messing with the bowling alley once they get bored of the first, just in case either of those are places your chara frequents enough to notice later :x ))

[The feed comes on with Ashura sitting calmly, mostly his face and shoulders shown and not much else, so it is hard to say where he is, but it is some place quiet.

He pauses for a moment, as if waiting for a crowd to quiet, then begins.]

I realize we have many new members joining us, and some of us have been here for longer than we care to remember. And it has occurred to me that we all know so very little about each other - be it our pasts, our names, or even the worlds we call come from. As a general rule, a people usually share a common past and culture, making a sort of unity between them that sits beneath the usual interplay of individual personalities. And those who follow a different culture are looked upon as oddities, or even with fear.

Being here, in Marina, with so many people from so many different worlds and cultures, I thought perhaps as a whole, as a... people, we might come to understand each other better if we understood each others stories and powers. I would hope that it would provide some unity between us, or at least make it easier for us all to get along with each other and coordinate when times call for it. That being said, I am willing to be the one to compile information anyone is willing to share about their culture, their people from their world. You do not have to speak to me, and this is only mine own idea of what I think might help us all, but I am sure this will work for the better of us all.

And in the spirit of this, I offer up my own story first....

[There is another pause, a breath, and he begins - ]

Ashura's Story )

[He pauses again, taking a deep breath.]

I am available through many means if you wish to tell me your tale, and through my new understanding of technology can hopefully compile them and allow for all to access. I hope this proves to bring us together, or at the least make this place more liveable for us all.

[Anew laughs as her blue haro rolls around in front of her on the grass. Its eyes blink, but it doesn't say much yet. It bumps into her pet giza rabbit which looks momentarily annoyed before Anew picks up the haro and moves it away.]

I think it's time you had a name, little guy.

[She looks at the camera, tucking some lavender hair behind her ear as she shyly addresses everyone:]

Does anyone have any good ideas for his name?

[Kaito didn't normally go on... dates. At all. Luckily he wasn't a complete moron and the concept wasn't all that difficult to figure out, so this evening seemed as good as any to take a certain special lady out.]

[Movies and cute things? Fuck that. He leaned against the front of the dojo with a large bag slung on his shoulder and a couple of kid-sized baseball bats in his hands. A little early from the time he'd given Gazelle to meet up (since he'd wanted to give all the places another look over), but he didn't mind waiting.]

[This is usually the time Conrad trains, and to be sure he can be found near the dojo. But this time, his sword is resting comfortably in its sheath as he leans back against the outer wall. Arms crossed and a little smile on his face that might just slightly resemble amusement, he has the distinct look of someone who is waiting for some entertainment.]

[He has something specific in mind, but if his guest is actually on time he'll be shocked. In the meantime, whoever comes around would be just fine to occupy him.]

--I can't believe they're celebrating Holi. [He's kind of thrilled about it, and laughs.]

Holi is a festival of colors. I'm not sure if there's religious significance to it or not, other than that it's for spring, but in India people would throw colorful liquid or powder on passersby. And if you say to them, "Pardon me, but it's Holi," they're supposed to forgive you.

It's a lot of fun, if you can relax enough for it. If not... [sly] maybe you should stay indoors today?

((ooc: Respond to his voice post here! Otherwise this is an EVENT POST. Comment here if you want your character to get powdered, or if you want to lurk and throw brightly-colored water at other people, and other people will respond to your comment to oblige!

[It's a somewhat unsure shark that's wandering the prison tonight. Lind isn't too sure what he's feeling after everything that's occurred today. He definitely has something of a headache from the fact she's here. You don't get used to that thought very easily.

As for what it could mean...he doesn't know. And he's not sure he likes it. Too many things, too many details. It bothers him.

But hell if he's reaching out. No, that isn't going to happen. He wants to see whether or not he matters in this equation first. So instead he wanders, mood unsure and AT for once not whirring along quietly. Too much to think on...]

[It had certainly been an eventful return. A rough start, but that took a complete spin after Gazelle arrived too (funny, how it had been the same day). So eventful that he hadn't thought much on anything until the day after, when he looked at the clock and realized the brat would be showing up any minute.

He almost wished he'd told Akito at noon, since he quite liked this eating-breakfast-sandwiches-on-the-couch-with-Gazelle thing currently going on.]

[Action, Late evening to nighttime]

[It's fairly late, but Agito doesn't care. Too much shit is going on and he's really not in a good mood because of it. Kaito being back was one thing (and he's now sporting a decent bruise on his cheek and a few others under his clothes) but...Akito's upset about things. His other does not deal with guilt well.

But the light had recognised his mood and made him go ride, and to be honest Agito needs it. He hasn't ridden properly in ages and it's affecting him. A lack of people to fight isn't good for a shark.

So he's riding around the dome, purposely taking routes through some of the more populated areas. Obstacles keep him awake and on his feet. AT are whirring loudly as he skates the streets and rooftops, tearing along at somewhat dangerous speeds. The shark's deliberately trying to wear himself out, pushing himself as hard as he can. The Fang King needs some kind of distraction, and he needs it badly. Otherwise he might end up running himself into the ground]

Huh? What is all that supposed to mean? [Says this panicked and confused girl after reading the greeting and trying to pull the communicator off, unaware of having turned it on by mistake instead.]

I didn't... do anything. Not anything at all.

[She half pouts to herself, before seeming to notice something. Down, down her eyes stray to something and widen. Some of you may understand this look; it's that one a person gets when something important is missing. Within seconds she goes changes from shocked to extremely upset. The shithead who took her Regalia from her was going to made to give it back, she swore.]

[Seething, she looks back up, direct line of sight on to the communicator.]

Give it back.

[OOC: As implied by the subject line, action tags are welcomed (right off the bat or half way through) but at the risk off a bigger misunderstanding happening. And this, being a late intro and all, is obviously backdated to an earlier point of time for the 109th day.]
