Someone moved my things! Those are very sensitive experiments and they aren't ready for distribution yet!

[Remember the dream event? Yeah, that was Sam and Dean moving her things. Sorry about that. Well, not really sorry...]

I'm not angry. [She's clearly very angry.] Just announce your guilt and I'll deal with you accordingly.
[The 55th Day]
22 March 2010 at 08:55 pm
Good morning, inmates. It is the 55th day of the third generation.

Continuing with my alterations to Sentience's ineffective methods, I have decided a period of recovery to be necessary after observing the reactions to and of recent arrivals. With the intent of minimizing the shock of being thrust into a foreign environment, and so that settled inmates do not feel so overwhelmed by increasing arrivals, I will be incarcerating criminals in a timely, routine fashion that will not be so disruptive, upon completing the last of the trials Sentience had already prepared.

Lady von Khrennikov, the dispersal of stimulants into the air yesterday was an improper use of medicine and will not be tolerated in the future. At request of the Defense Force, the dispensers have been safely disposed of by the remote units and the chemical is no longer present in the dome's atmosphere, so there is no longer any need to be concerned, inmates.

[Anissina's mysterious directions led Komui to... a room in the shelter. He blinked at the door, and reread the directions on his communicator to be sure it was correct. He'd expected somewhere far more interesting.]

[But nonetheless, he wasn't about to let her think he'd chickened out. So he knocks softly twice and then gives a hard, final rap on the door, as directed. Really, if she was so concerned about intruders she should develop better defenses for the door. He should suggest that to her.]

Scientific experimentation on sentient creatures without prior consent is unethical, immoral, and evil. Science is for the benefit of other people, and those who exploit its name for selfish reasons aren't worthy of the title of "scientist".

((OOC much, Fletcher? Nope, he's just strongly affected by Speak-Your-Mind-kun, and therefore way prone to expressing opinions he would have had anyway, but wouldn't have stated out loud.))

Something is extremely strange this morning, in case some of you haven't noticed yet. Perhaps something related to this? [he holds up a ducky air freshener with the most serious expression you ever did see] Can anyone explain to me what this is, and why it was plugged in outside my house?

...and the next house over, and the next, and the next?

[ //encrypted private// to each and every one of his castmates ]

This is some sort of truth serum. But don't think I will accept that as an excuse if I hear any of you saying something stupid over the network.

[It's late. Super late. Actually, it's probably early. Super early.

Anissina is pushing along a little cart filled with little animal-shaped vessels as she roams about the dome, distributing her latest creation: Take-a-Deep-Breath-and-Relax-kun to be renamed to Speak-Your-Mind-kun later when it works...better than intended!.]

(OOC: For those of you awake, you should be able to find her just about anywhere! You shouldn't really notice the affects until tomorrow (Day 54).)

I do believe Sentience knew it was going to be leaving us. Or had an inkling.

What do you know of Sentience?

Any information on it at all would be very appreciated. A few of you have mentioned it having disappeared before; the particulars around this interest me quite a bit. In my home world, I worked rather extensively with computer databases and AI that may have been similar to our benevolent jailer. So I am curious.

[ The usual indicators that point out a filtered entry have been hidden.

If you're even capable of noticing such things, you might have felt the use of Ribbons' quantum brainwaves. He's spent most of his first unrestrained day attempting to get into the asylum's various... everything, and recovering from the exhaustion his fruitless attempts brought him. ]

[for once, a distinctly displeased Allen; he has overslept somewhat lol sleep issues and missed the lack of announcement] Did someone break the robots? They're being extremely dense this morning. I can only order one entree at a time! [and this situation is completely untenable]

[It was early evening, and Tieria had been on his 'date' cooking with Lacus earlier that day. Obligations over with, he decided he finally needed some time to himself to come to terms with everything that sort of dumped on him so quickly in only four days. Without Veda, he'd gotten used to taking time to himself to sort his thoughts. Before, he'd always been able to sort of dump information and sort through it in his own way. Without that backup, though, he had to keep everything in his head and try to work through it that way. Being back in that situation again after some time in Veda, he knew he was going to have to revert to that alone time again. He was in the garden on a bench, and looked up at the dome above him. The stars had made a difference. It looked a lot nicer than just water. Still, he preferred outerspace. He'd rather be up there with the real ones then stuck under water.]
Mood: contemplative

All right, Murata. Did you have a certain time in mind to meet up? 

[He so wants to get it over with as soon as possible. Sigh. Murata and Haruhi, actually... Not his idea of fun here...]

Don't think I've forgotten you either, Yuuri. I haven't settled on an idea yet!

[Quickly, as if an after thought.]

I'm not sure I have time for lessons today, Josak. Care for a reschedule?
[action] Event: Valentine's Auction
19 February 2010 at 03:05 pm
[A podium and stage, decorated with pink and red, has been set up outside the shelter. Here's where the action happens...!]

[Everyone who wants to RP out their auction should make a comment here, describing what they're wearing and how they're feeling/acting in the comment. Don't say anything. You may optionally add context relative to the timing of the bidding, like mention that he's impatient for character X to go up, or is weirded out because character Y just bought someone else and she was supposed to buy him, or is anxious because she's the first one up there, etc.

[Then Minako responds with patter commentary, attempting to sell your character based on what she knows/has been told. She will put [Bidding] in the subject line. Respond to Minako's comments to bid. Just like in a real auction, the bid that is the highest or the fastest will be the one accepted!

[Please go up in increments of no more than 300 sentis at a time, and remember that 1500 sentis is a reasonable price for a date. Indicate in bold in brackets if you have OOC plans, like, "[He was confident he would win]" or "[She was starting to worry she didn't have enough cash]" or "[The thought of losing didn't even cross his mind]". It is common courtesy not to interfere with established plans; if you want to do something else, talk to the mun whose intentions interfere with yours.

[But try not to choreograph things too extensively. You have the right to decide what you want to happen to your character, but it's fun to let these things be spontaneous, and you don't have the right to tell other people their characters aren't allowed to do something IC just because it interferes with your extensively scripted plans.

[Minako will declare the winner of each auction, largely at her discretion, and then the bidding will be over.

[People may also start their own threads off the original comment with the biddee with subject lines like [Before the Bidding] or [After the Bidding] to interact with the person up for auction. Try not to do post-bidding threads until after the bidding is concluded -- for obvious reasons!]

[You'll see the video running over a beaming, red-haired demoness at some odd angles before it finally settles into place, showing her lab with an Ashton sitting in a new device. It is a large, silver chair with three helmets, one for each head—dragon or otherwise. Wires are spilling out from it all over. Some don't even appear to be connected to anything. There is a big blue light, dimly humming behind the chair, but otherwise the scene is rather quiet, until...]

Greetings, Marina! Welcome to my latest invention, dragon-separation-kun!! Try to keep up, Komui. Today, we will be separating the two dragons from Ashton.

[She turns to flash a smile at him.] Ready, Ashton?

U-um, yes? [He was looking to the ground. He didn't want to move his head too much, it was obvious, but it wasn't like he had much choice in that. The dragons made no motion whatsoever. After a moment, he sucks in a breath and looks straight ahead.] Yes. I am ready.

[Anissina smiles and starts pulling down an almost comically over-sized lever. The blue light behind Ashton starts to glow brighter.] Don't worry. You should barely feel this with all the numbness!

O-okay. [Ashton steeled himself for the unknown. His face had a look of slight fear on it. He was initially very apprehensive about broadcasting the experiment, but she had insisted, and he wasn't about to turn back now.]

[Anissina throws the lever the rest of the way and the blue light glows until the screen is just filled with light. Hope no one has sensitive eyes! A moment or so later, Anissina, who is wearing darkened goggles—when did she put those on?—is looking at Ashton.] Well, that's not good.

Isn't it? ["Ashton" smiled. His eyes were closed as he took in a deep breath.] Are we not free?

[Then, more certain.] Yes, we are free.

[His brows knit in confusion, eyes opening. One iris was colored a very bright amber with a reptillian pupil. The second one's center was if someone had set a smooth turqouise gemstone within. "Ashton" looked down at his hands, and seemed to be surprised at how they moved at his command.]

This is unexpected. [The two heads on "Ashton"s back are still present, but their stares are blank; expressions flat.]

Shibuya, Sir Weller, and Lady Anissina... do you all have a moment?

((OOC: THAR BE SPOILERS for Season 2 in the comments. ))
06 February 2010 at 09:32 pm
Captain, have you noticed a certain person...missing, the last few days?

[Lady Cheri didn't even comment when Josak broadcasted on the Network in his lovely uniform and he hasn't been able to track her. So yeah, he's trying to see if what he thinks happened is true.]

Your mother didn't come to cheerleading practice either...

[A woman with hair as bright and red as her robe appear on screen.] These robes are interesting. I'm finding many uses for the pockets in the sleeves.

Was that you making all that noise last night, Komui? Don't worry. I'm sure you'll come up with something that works almost as well as what I'm creating.

Oh, and Kunou, your device is ready~

Hello Marina Asylum inhabitants!

This is Anissina von Khrennikov. [Are you suitably impressed?] I wonder if you could explain for me some of your favorite advancements and technologies from your world. You may consider me interested so don't waste it! And if you have thoughts about things we need here, I'm listening.

Some people are cheerful today.~

But I'm going to take a page from the Hitachiin's book. I'm bored.~

[So bored he's currently in the dinning area, lining cards up. Probably going to start making a tower with them. Feel free to notice if in the area.]

[Ashton was back in his room, but since his meetings with others today, and the large amount of talking about people's rights to their bodies, and things like that, with the guy who gave everyone cat ears, he had done some thinking about his situation.

It then dawned on him that he had someone who was going to assist him, but he never got her name!]

[The video feed cuts on, showing him sitting on his bunk, dressed down from his usual long coat to just a pair simple black slacks and a loose white shirt. Even his headband and shoes are absent, his feet drying from an encounter with a large puddle. His cheeks were slightly red from running to his room, and he appeared somewhat disshelved. The dragons were a little tired from the trip around the facility, so they were curled up as much as they could be, behind his back.]

Um, hello! This is Ashton. I was wondering...

[He cleared his throat.] That is, I was talking to a lady a few days ago, about helping me out with a, um, problem.

[His brow creased and he wiped some moisture from it. Then he also wiped some water from his still-present cat ears.] I mean, I talked to her, but I didn't get her name, or give her mine. [Ashton put a finger to his chin as he thought.] She had blue eyes, and red hair, and was very curious about me.

[He closed his eyes and bowed his head a little.] I'm sorry, this doesn't make much sense, but if you are out there - or you know who she might be! - could you please contact me?

[Then, staring directly into the screen with a serious gaze, he finished the message.] I-   I'm ready to take the first step, if you are.

[Shortly after the morning announcement, a video clicks on. Komui grins widely, looking quite pleased with himself.]

Ah, I see many of you have discovered my latest stroke of genius! [pointing at his own pair of twitching cat ears!] Adorable, aren't they? Even Anissina can't argue that. You can all thank me in turn~ Special thanks to our new friend Ritsuka for the inspiration and to Allen Walker for the idea! This is a prototype formula so they'll only last for a day or so but I'll work on a stronger formula for the future.

But oh, right, the important bit! [wagging a finger at the camera] This isn't all fun and games, you know. I need to see who's safe to be around Lenalee, so these are to keep all of you honest! Naughty thoughts make them fall off and expose you for the deviant you are, so keep your minds full of pure and clean things, boys and girls!

[seemingly to himself as the video pans away] I'll bet Lenalee looks so cute~
