[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.]

[Rare, especially now, there's a young girl fast asleep, her chest rising and falling rhythmically beneath the shade of a tree. Back against a small fence just outside of the Education Center, there's a bag at her side, a couple of books tucked within. Her parasol is closed at the moment, leaning against the cool bark along with her. Any of the classes she's had the intention of making are over, by now, her attendance being tardy.
Still, she looks surprisingly peaceful for a vampire sleeping so openly, a notebook full of (the wrong) notes sprawled open beside her. Yet then again, maybe it isn't so strange to see a vampire sleeping during the day.]( OOC )
So we're all from different worlds, I get that much.
But ya can't tell me that I'm the only one unlucky enough to come from a world full of Cape-types! [And then she laughs. Probably leaving you to wonder if she's serious or not.]
[If you happen to wander into the bar this afternoon, you'll find Zinda, sitting alone and looking mildly agitated, drumming her fingers on the table. Well, that's an unusual sight. She's normally talking someone's ear off!
Dare you approach her?]

[Today, Ammy has decided, is the day to meet new people and catch up with friends. Because there are many people she hasn't seen for awhile and new people she totally needs to meet.
The shelter is the best bet for finding people, and naturally this means Ammy's going to hang around the kitchen. Should you be in there, she is going to sit next to you and give you the best puppy eyes she can, because clearly this should work.

[After her shift, she thinks about going to the sewing room, but Road's dress is finished and she'll just ruin it if she starts putting in 'finishing touches' all over the place. Since she's got no other projects going at the moment, she decides to head home and practice her ocarina. With Saki gone, she might not be able to make it to the music classes after all, but she can always ask Acumen for another ocarina. She'd like to keep up with it.
She's sitting cross-legged on her bed with the door closed, hoping the sound doesn't get through, as she begins to play the notes she learned at the last music class. Her fingers still don't seem to want to do what her brain tells them to, so there's an audible pause between notes, but she's getting quicker. And she thinks she's got the breathing pretty much down.]
[After Ushiro's thread]
[She has to go for a walk. She's got to clear her head. So much has happened in such a short period of time, and - she's mostly elated, but fear is catching up fast, and she refuses to let that swallow up the happiness. She's got a boyfriend. Ushiro is her boyfriend. She deserves to be happy right now.
Anyone is free to catch up with her anywhere and make her fluster!]

[He hadn't heard from her in a while. He'd checked the life signals while at the Defence Force HQ, but he - no, surely the machines had been wrong. Right? So now he's asking - anyone he can.
Because Hermione can't be gone. She just can't. She'd always been talking about finding some way out and why nobody had left a note and surely she wouldn't have just disappeared, would she?
... Yeah, the kid's in pretty heavy denial right now.]
Excuse me, has - has anyone seen Hermione Granger?
[He's trying to keep the fear, the desperation out of his voice, but it's not working too well.]

[it's late at night and good girls should be in bed. and she had been in bed. but now she's awake again, and curled up on the couch in the living room below, legs tucked up to her chest and turning over her hairpins in her hands, hair falling around her face]
Does anyone else here have nightmares sometimes? What-- What do you do when you have them?

--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! Calling all pranksters, goofballs, and trolls!))

[Ammy is lying at the foot of the Guardian Sapling, so for a moment, the video shows a view of the flowers from below before a paw comes into view, and then the communicator is shoved right so she can see~]
Technology is so fidly. A question though...it came to mind a little while ago. How many of you come from worlds of magic? Or is yours one of technology? Or both, or neither? I'm curious~

[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]( Voice, private to Kaito )

Time doesn't really make sense here. But -- what do you think the opposite of a birthday is?
[It's a bit late and her intention is to not show her face, but it's not as if she's making it particularly difficult to be found, curled up in a beach chair and watching the sky projection move.
Allen's commandeered puppy playing in the sand dunes and barking at shadows helps, too.]
Think of it as a riddle.

[Well, today's the day. He picked out a house, and Harry agreed to move in with him. It was a little nerve-wracking, but the only way to get over that was to plunge right into it.]
[Otoha walks over to Harry's room in the Shelter and knocks on his door.]
Harry? Are you ready?

[Are you in the park, near the Memorial Gardens?
If so, you might notice a skinny little figure curled around the base of a fairly freshly-planted tree, sleeping soundly. Her head is pillowed on her arm, and her clothing is mussed and grass-stained, as though she's been tossing and turning. Clearly not enough to wake her up and clue her in to the fact that she's fallen asleep by her tree, though.
Yesterday really took it out of this girl.]
((ooc: i'm not too het up about pime taradoxes, so if multiple people wake her up, that's cool. since otoha is actually taking her away somewhere, his thread'll be assumed to be last.))

[Diva stood on top of her tower, looking down on the dome and drawn instinctively to the darkness at the center. It looked out of place, all dark and dingy and lacking the lights she usually viewed from her window. She'd been out most of the day, but that just gave her fresh energy now as she paced the roof, enjoying the less stagnant air of the dome at large.
She had been cooped up far too long.
Singing, Diva walked a fine line along the roofing tiles, dancing slightly as she swayed, and not caring if she gave anyone who might see her a heart attack or two. Such things were hardly her concern, when all she wanted was to do as she pleased. Surely no one would protest~
Smiling, Diva flung at her hands, spinning, still singing, and laughing just a little in the pauses. She would most certainly need to do this again~]
((ooc: Throwing this up now rather then later to help accommodate my slowatus which will last through to Saturday. Matt, Aka, we'll ping you when we need you to come in, but I would highly doubt we'll be ready for you before my slowatus ends anyway.))

( ACTION )[VIDEO]
[When the video feed clicks on, the camera is bouncing and spinning for several seconds before finally sliding to a stop, giving a fortunately right-side-up image of the railing around the dolphin observation deck. A few seconds later a pair of hands reach up, grasp onto the lowest bar of the railing, and haul the attached person up.
[Seishirou is sopping wet, shirtless, and barefoot, and doesn't seem to mind any of this at all. He swings over the railing and starts forward, stopping only long enough to pick up the communicator -- accidentally switching it off in the process.

[Ken is out early, as the impossibly long night threatened to suffocate him. The artificial daylight had barely covered the dome, as he steps out to run around the park and the beach.( But it is not enough. )
Taking calming breaths as he closes his eyes. He decides to take a break, sitting on a bench, towel over his head, randomly wiping away the sweat getting his eyes and sipping at his water.]( (( OOC )) )

Good evening, Marina! The sun is about to set and, as promised, tonight's special class is about to begin. [ The lights in the dome flicker on across the streets, in preparation for the impending onset of night. Neil isn't anywhere near the park, as is obvious from his vantage point. The projector cannot be seen in the frame, but there is the sound of something mechanical whirring and winding up not far from him. ]
There's no formal lesson tonight, but I hope everyone gathered in the park -- or anywhere you can get a good view of the dome itself -- will still take something away from it.[ The daylight fades out, and a bright source of light nearby illuminates his face. He's smiling wide as the projection of the desert sun over Africa is displayed on the inside of the glass just above the athletic complex fields in Sector 6. ]
We have shown the stars in past lessons from an outside perspective, and it's easy to forget that we can take in the same kind of beauty from the ground with just the naked eye.[ His own right eye, the fake one, reflects the light as the sky slowly shifts to images of sunsets. Is that a celestial body in the sky? Perhaps it was Venus.
He gives a quick glance over his shoulder. Time to wrap this up. ]
I'll let you all enjoy the show, now. Have a good night, everyone! [ And he did mean everyone. With a two-finger salute, and a rather big grin, he ends the feed.
The projection continues on, showing still images throughout the next few hours including, but not limited to:
A solar eclipse seen from Japan.
The moon over the ocean.
And, for the finale, some choice shots of the Aurora Borealis. ]
(OOC: Event-style posting! Come in pairs, alone, tag each other as you like at any point before, during or after the presentation. Plenty of room on the bleachers on the field, and hopefully the mood
~ will be suitable for the holiday. Enjoy the show -- romance is optional, but encouraged; feel free to use this as an excuse to get those cross-chocolate dates out of the way~
Neil will not
be answering his communicator tonight. ♥)

[There is much joy to be found in Valentine's Day, but for Lacus and other Coordinators it's also a day of remembrance. Mourning, if you will, for the 243,721 people killed when Junius 7 was destroyed. This is why she is walking through one of the graveyards, among the rows of identical markers, a bundle of white flowers in her arms.]
[Soft music plays (courtesy of her haro Pink, who is holding the camera as he sits atop one of the gravestones) and Lacus begins singing, her voice strong and sure, hopeful yet sad. As she glides through the rows, each marker is given a single flower. These aren't people Lacus knew, but that doesn't matter. They too deserve to be remembered.]
[Once she's done singing, she'll be happy to hear from anyone. She wonders if Shinn is listening...]( Translation: ♬ Fields of Hope ♬ )((OOC: Feel free to action-tag if you like!))
