[ guess who's back in the dome, marina? a certain blonde magician (with both his eyes, thank you very much) is currently aimlessly wandering the streets of marina, with no apparent destination in mind.

if you remember him, you're welcome to come up and say hi! ]

((ooc: have a fai, with previous marina memories! :D well, all of them minus keri!fay memories.))
[action/open | video/closed to broadcast only] PLAY BALL!
08 September 2010 at 11:25 pm
[Gino announced the second official Marina baseball game just like last time, giving the exciting play-by-plays and the occasional commentary about the players and the cheerleaders. He tries the occasional video feed, but the communicator doesn't have the best ability to take in a large setting, so nothing is very clear.

There is really never a dull moment in a game where the players include, but are not limited to, dragons, angels, and vampires, oh my!

The Purple Dragons won in a last minute upset. AND THE CROWD GOES WILD! ...Right? Upsets are pretty exciting.]

[Fou-Lu | Backdated to mid-afternoon]

[It'd been a while since she's seen Fou-Lu and while she could have certainly called to catch-up, a house visit was just that much nicer! So after the school meeting, Jennifer decided to do just that. Make a house-call. To Fou-Lu! Is anyone home? Knocking on the door~]

((ooc: Fou-Lu household members, threadjack allowed with permission))


[Jennifer's house: Closed to Hiling, EVE and WALL-E | mid-evening]

[Jennifer had been busy, sure, but she could always make time for a dinner party! She was actually looking forward to getting to know Hiling better and that EVE was finally coming over to experience the wonder of food preparation was a special, unexpected treat! She really hoped everything went well tonight.]

((ooc: Jennifer Household welcomed to threadjack into dinner, but for expediency sake, I'll assume those are 2-way conversations with whomever is threadjacked unless specifically requested otherwise.))

((Note: I'm on the way to relatives for the day, but I'll be back later tonight and will be on for as long as my battery allows in the meantime!))
[ action / open ] Paintball!
01 September 2010 at 09:18 pm
[ Chuck's standing in front of a table. On the table are three boxes. In the first box, there are bags with paintball "markers" (guns) and ammunition. In the second box are goggles. On the third, there are thinly padded helmets and chest pieces, all in black. Chuck is wearing all the gear, but his headgear has a little white flag attached to it. ]

Okay! [ Very excited. Sort of looks like a spaniel puppy who has to go to the bathroom. ] Thanks, everybody, for coming out. [ Waves! ]

I'm Chuck, and I'm going to be your ref. Behind me -- [ Indicates the fields behind him that are littered with hay bales of various sizes and heights. Both fields have been set up into one large play area. ] -- is our game field. The boundaries are the white lines along the perimeter. If anyone just wants to watch, they can sit in the bleachers.

[ Rubs his hands together. Sort of nervous now, but hey, still soldiering on. ]

Here's how we're going to do this. Everybody get in line and come up. You give me your name, I'll put it down and then I'll give you your marker and ammo, and you can pick out your gear. Everybody has to wear the headgear and goggles. The chest piece is optional. Once everybody has their stuff, we'll play.

I just have a few rules. First, no head or face shots. I mean it. [ Srs face. ] Second, no shooting someone more than once per encounter. And third, no attacking with anything other than a paintball. The markers can't be modified, and you can't hit someone with your marker.

I've got white paint. I'm the only person. If I see you someone breaking a rule, they're going to get hit with white paint. That person has to sit out on the bleachers for ten minutes. If I catch them more than once, they can't play anymore. Also... no shooting the ref.

No teams, and we'll count the hits at the end of the hour. Whoever wins gets... ah... the pleasure of bragging rights. [ Ehehehe. ] After, party at the club.

Okay, let's go!

((ooc: Event style tagging under the headers. Threadjacks are encouraged. People can skip the sign-up process and/or mingle pre-game, or just go straight to playing. More details here. :D))

[Wanders into the convenience store, a little later than planned, but she wasn't really on a time schedule anyway. She just... needed to find something to be happy about! She was going to miss them, little Red and Vio. They really managed to breath life back into the home...]
23 August 2010 at 03:20 pm
[It's late at night, but the darkness is no barrier to the great Snow Leopard. Tharaman is uneasy, having not overly adjusted yet to this place and becoming slightly annoyed with having to be here. The monsters awhile ago, that strange...thing who had taken over. And there were so many young ones here...it wasn't right.

He paces along the streets, restless and just keeping moving. He longs for the snow of home, or of the Icemark. Thirrin needs him...why is he here?

Hmph. He snorts slightly, a hiss just contained from escaping him. Tharaman isn't in a good mood. A distraction would be appreciated.]
[video | open]
09 August 2010 at 07:33 pm
[He's worried about the monsters from last night, but he wants to help people cheer up, so he'll talk about something happier.]

I think it's time for another baseball game! If that's okay with Suzaku. Everyone who can make it should be at practice today, so we can get ready! And maybe we'll have the game, um, in two or three days? Does that sound good? Oh! Maybe I'll send a letter when it's decided. PM likes mail.

If you're new to the team or if you know someone who left, could you let me know? [Sheepishly rubbing his neck and smiling.] I guess Murata was kind of taking care of the rosters, and now they are a little out-of-date.

Does anyone else want to be the manager of the teams? Maybe someone with nice handwriting?

[Rei is as close as she's ever come to being cranky, really. First she got no sleep after her talk with Neil, and then she woke up to - well, chaos is the only way to put it. It's still dark out when she goes for her LCL treatment, still dark when she has breakfast with Tsukasa, and it's still dark a couple of hours later when she goes to stock up on some groceries.

And that brings us to this exact moment, when she enters the convenience store and finds that anything of any use to her has been removed, apparently replaced with the worst trash anyone could imagine. She edges closer to the hot dog cart and eyeballs a weiner cautiously - does that even count as meat? It smells horrible. And what on earth is 'Poop' cola?

She's scowling darkly, hands on her hips, when she glances outside and sees that it's begun to rain. Exactly what she needed.

Anyone want to meet a rare bitchy!Rei?]
[Event | Beach Party!]
22 July 2010 at 03:43 pm
[The beach has been taken over by festivities! Amongst the plethora of buckets and shovels for the sandcastle competition, the snorkeling gear, and the beach volleyball setup, Cain and Jennifer have worked hard to get everything set up and ready to go in time for the guests to arrive.]

[Fortunately, the food was acquired earlier in the day, and so there is plenty to eat--burgers, bratwurst, fish, grilled vegetables, and an unfamiliar but tasty-looking steak that, if questioned, Cain will cheerfully explain is from grox, a "domesticated" giant lizard from his time.]

[But there are also snacks like chips and pretzels, along with a small variety of sides like potato salad and bread. Further down the table are the cold (non-alcoholic) drinks, complete with ice, and a few desserts. They are all set to go on a buffet-style table not too far from the grill, dutifully replenished by Jennifer.]

((OOC: Event-style post! Threadjack as you please. Party crashers may or may not be tolerated depending on how much Saya gets to eat before their arrival.))

[HAVE A CHIPPER HIKARU! People aren't always as bad as he believes them to be, and this made him cheerful.]

I hope you all like your school uniforms. You couldn't have had better designers~!

[He feels really cool for this, yeah!]

Anyway, if you liked the paint balloon toss, maybe you'll also play freeze tag or blitzball with us!

I don't know what we're playing yet.

Boring people not allowed.

Also, I'm looking to try a new pasta dish, maybe with some heat to it. Different than pasta arrabiata. Wouldn't that be fun, Kaoru?

[Toothless is bored. He's been here long enough that he's pretty much explored everything. He knows by now not to mess with the very big fish (aka the dolphins), for they are not for eating, and to leave all the small animals, also not for eating, alone. So now he's trying to see if anyone else wants to play that one game he played a few days ago.]

I want to play the baseball game! Where can I find someone throwing the ball?

[He still thinks that baseball is, more or less, fetch. Throw the ball, bring it back, repeat. It has something to do with teams and going home but he doesn't understand that part. This place isn't home. It's under the water! How can they run home?]
16 July 2010 at 01:26 pm
[Day 71: the first day of the Marina Asylum Postal Service! And it is a busy one, much to a parcel mistress' delight. The Peregrine Mendicant can be seen skittering energetically around the dome, with a bag full of letters that she is eager to deliver.]
  • Allen: a letter from Spike.
  • Fletcher: a letter from the Peregrine Mendicant.
  • The Peregrine Mendicant: a card from Ribbons.

  • From Euphemia: letters to all the teachers, as well as Guilford and Lelouch.
  • From Jennifer: invitations to Saya and Saya's friends: Jeanne, Cain, Duo, Yuuri, Josak, Li, and Kitty Pryde the younger.
    • Jennifer's invitations were also sent to anyone who could become Saya's friend: see list )!
    • However, PM has been given extra invites to distribute to any nice people she encounters.

  • Alessa Gillespie, Charley J. Chrishunds, and Johnny Rayflo: packages from a "secret admirer" named Rayflo! If no one was home to receive them, they may either pick them up at the office, or receive them during tomorrow’s route.

[Now that her route is complete, she can take a moment at the post office to catch her breath. That light-headed feeling isn't oxygen deprivation due to exercise, it is the THRILLING RUSH OF CIVILIZATION.]

A satisfying first day! Thank you for making this possible, Marina!

[If you do not feel inclined to thread things out and you were not one of the mass-mailer recipients, please respond OOCly or with a brief IC reaction so we all know you've seen it/received it! Mail submissions for Day 72 go here!]

[After looking up a recipe, Hiling headed to the convenience store with a list of ingredients. She was going to try cooking again. It seemed simple enough and she wanted to have something ready for Ribbons once he got out of the hospital. She also made a note to get some fresh flowers for their dining room table.

As she neared her destination, her thoughts drifted to the conversations she had these past few days. It didn't do much good to dwell on such things, but it was hard to put out of her mind. Hopefully shopping would prove to be a sufficient distraction.]

[The communicator turns on with a face full of black cat and Al laughs, pulling Tama away.] Tama, don't eat the communicator! [He smiles, picking his kitty up and rubbing noses with her.

It's been a week since Al has looked like this. Eyes bright, a big smile on his face. He looks happy. More like the old Al, before Ed vanished and the issue with Envy started.

He smiles at the video.] Thank you for taking care of Tama for me, Fletcher!

[Tama meows and bats a paw at his nose playfully.

Al laughs and hugs her close.] I missed you too! Come on, let's play some more. [He picks up the small golfball-sized toy he has by his side and rolls it along the ground, watching the kitten go tearing off after it.]

[There's a bit of noise in the computer lab. High-pitched, tinny voices are coming from inside, along with the characteristically calm but rather amused tone of one Lacus Clyne. She's spent the last few days working on the new haros for Lyle and Orihime, and is almost done!]

Fun with Haros! )

[Meanwhile, Lacus activates the video on her communicator, and in the background everyone can see the multicolored haro stampede.]

Good morning, everyone. If you see some haros come your way, please let me know! They're not quite complete yet, but very friendly!

((OOC: Feel free to run into any of the haros near-ish to the computer lab or to Lacus in [action] threads, or answer on video!))

[Over at the athletic complex, Saber has unfortunately discovered the batting cages, and is taking them very seriously.

Unfortunate for the equipment and those who plan/ want to use them, that is.

You wouldn't think the tiny blond girl capable of making such deafening cracks with her swings, but she makes it look effortless-- vaporizing every ball the machine throws out, and every few shots or so, she's forced to quickly grab a new bat to replace the one that's just been split. Judging from the pile, she's been at it a while; the focused expression, she'll be going at it for a bit longer]

[Anyone planning on visiting the convenience store today? Maybe you are in need of something that can be used as a makeshift weapon, or trying to find a good place to hide from the recent danger, or just looking out for people wandering around unprotected. Whatever your reason, if you happen to catch the attention of a certain over-protective robot, you might end up getting more excitement today than you bargained for.

You see, EVE is well aware that there is something suspicious going on in the prison. Something that has already managed to kill one human. And if it can hurt humans, who knows, maybe it can hurt WALL-E too. EVE cannot risk dropping her guard around anyone today, because WALL-E's already been hurt once before. She's not going to allow something like that to happen again.]

[Action - OPEN] Yuuki and Yuuri's Super Awesome Party!
16 April 2010 at 06:11 pm

[Set up at the beach there's a contained bonfire, and tables full of food. Around the area there are several grills set up for if people decide they want to make things to their particular liking. There are even a few watermelon! It can't be considered a beach party without a watermelon to break among friends. Games have been set up. There are volleyball nets so that people can participate in a friendly game, and a couple of beach balls. Prizes are set off to the side for those who would like to compete in sand castle designs or the games themselves, and there are goggles and underwater equipment for water polo and other festivities.

Come, eat a piece of cake, grill yourself a steak, swim, sing, dance, limbo, mingle, troll, build sandcastles and have fun!]

[OOC: Yuuki and Yuuri's party to cheer themselves up. They don't know who's all coming. You're free to have your character just show up and do whatever you like. The kids just want to have fun! 7:00 because one is a night owl. lol. Feel free to thread-jack and play!]

[Private to Wolfram]

Wolfram? Hey, it's me.

[Long pause.]


Okay, you probably can't hear this because Conrad said your communicator was still broken. You should get that fixed.

Um... I just wanted to say hi.


It's okay if you want to talk to me. Even if you just want to yell or something.

[Another long pause.]

Yuuki and I are having a party tonight. You should come. You like the beach, right? There will be games...

Okay, bye I guess.
