[Suddenly there is video! And now there isn't. Oh, but now it's back! Give him a break, he's a carpenter, not an A/V geek.]
Hey, so did anyone know that prison came with headgear? I was not aware of that. I kind of feel like I should be one of those really pretentious rock stars who can't be bothered with a microphone. Also, kind of awkward to have this thing over one eye when you only have one eye.
Right, so... I was with some people. And there was a giant hole where a town used to be. Buff? Wil? ...I'll even take Andrew. Are you on this thing?
(OOC: He has an eyepatch over one eye even though not every icon confirms this!)

[In light of recent events, we could all benefit from
an episode bookend quote some encouraging words, right?]
Bruce Barton wrote, "Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress."
Euphemia? May I have a word with you, please?

[If you know Lacus, you know she's a little overly curious sometimes, so it might not come as a big surprise to see her roaming around, pausing to touch various things, smell some flowers if any happen to be in the area. But she's not usually followed around by an athletic, headphone-wearing brunette who's carrying an impressive laptop/handheld technogadget combo. And usually there aren't electrodes under all that pink hair.]
[Lacus isn't bothered by the rain in the slightest and Rebecca has the equipment covered so they're just as likely to be outside as inside, Lacus playing around in the light rain in clothing that's quite a bit more suited to summer than early spring. At Rebecca's direction, Lacus is idly taking her time to take in whatever's around, whether that's dipping her fingers in the koi pond or nestling into an armchair in the shelter common room or leaning against the brick wall of one of the lesser used buildings. She might sample a few things from the restaurants, too.]
[And if you happen to be around, Lacus might casually ask if she can touch you. Don't worry, it's all for science.]
((OOC: Threads will be with Lacus and Rebecca and can be located anywhere in the dome! Feel free to ask what's going on, or react as if Lacus has approached you. There will be no touching without permission, but she's a hard girl to say no to ^_^ ]
[video/action → MINGLE] yeah, that's right

[The shelter is clearly equipped for a celebration to mark the changing of wardens. Everything is neat and tidy, with decorations and a generous food spread laid over the tables for the taking. There’s also the usual entertainment in the common areas – TVs, video games, movies. Maybe you can talk someone into an impromptu karaoke party. Why not? Sentience doesn’t mind.
There’s a party to be had, so get down with your bad self.
Need an invite? Aren’t quite sure what’s going on? Well, here’s a friendly neighbourhood Judith to explain it to you. The camera feed pans over a glammed up corner of the shelter’s common area before going back to her face. It’s clear she’s pleased by the set-up.
If I had known this was planned, I would have made some special cupcakes.
[Are you wondering what goes into Judith’s special cupcakes? Keep wondering.
I suppose after all the excitement from last night, it’s nice to have some fun and relax. I’m not sure it’s fair to have one party directly following another – but maybe I’ll get to make up for missed opportunities. [She wanted to kick a robot’s face in, okay.
] ((OOC: Mingle post for Sentience’s party in the shelter! The shelter is decorated with streamers and there’s a feast spread! But only three types of ice cream, though. Create threads and tag amongst yourselves! It’s a celebration, anything goes. Backdated slightly to the early evening.
If you want to respond to Judith via video, feel free! There will be a thread for that right here! Notifs are turned off otherwise.))

[A strikingly beautiful young man appears in view and speaks After a small yawn, he speaks in a soft tone- there's barely something in that tone, that could be something to take caution in.]
My head is killing me... prison? Hah... it must be a bad dream.. because, I definitely don't belong in here...! No flaw in your system..? Surely you're mistaken!
Hah, really! I haven't done a thing! Do you see any blood on these hands? [Dietrich looks down at his hands, a soft smile painted on his face] Certainly not... You must have me confused for my so-called family.
I'm tired. And this.. it's annoying. This place isn't very comfortable at all.
I am obviously not alone, that much is sure! My... I must be surrounded by such very dangerous people if this is the case! Who wants to tell me their tall-tales since we're all playing this together. I do love a good story.

[It's a dawn of a new day, and York has been up early readying himself to attend to a critically important bit of business. Is it a Brave Vesperia mission? Defense Force errands? Solving crime?]
[York slips his communicator on and activates a filter.]
Karkat, it's time.
Bring your best movies over. I've made popcorn.

[WV is out running errands today, but he is PREPARED.]
[armed with his wooden practice sword, he's ducking and weaving to the best of his ability, occasionally whipping behind a bush or tree trunk when he sees one of those little robots approaching in the distance. He is wearing knee pads and elbow pads, as well, to prevent any injuries from daring rolls behind cover.]
[if he sees any innocent passers-by, they can expect to be reprimanded sternly for being out in the open on such a perilous day!]
[OOC: smooches of all sorts are welcome! Or just conversations, or just a quick peck on the forehead to ESCAPE. But really, why your character wouldn't want to smooch such a fine, fine example of heroic carapacian manliness is utterly beyond me.]

[ well, it's a nice day today. all moved in to a big house, which is a -- really, really weird feeling, not gonna lie. he's got a patrol to do, and a lot of cooking to get done before Flynn can think to try, but that's fine. seems like it'll probably be a pretty quiet day.
oh, little does he know.
he'll be over at Brave Vesperia HQ in the afternoon; in the morning, you might find him in his shiny new house in Sector 5, and you can also find him hanging out in the arcade or maybe just idly scouting out the fight club's arena. come one, come all! ]

[There on video is the sight of a somewhat more calm than last time troll. Instead of fear, anger is written on his face. His silly looking overbite probably cancels out the intended effect though. He doesn't seem to care as black eyebrows knit together.]
So, are we supposed to do anything vaguely productive or are we just supposed to sit on our fucking backsides and wait to die in here?
[He cards a hand through his hair, aggravation obvious.]
I don't even have any of my glorious movies here to pass the time, this is a daymare, oh my god.
[Filtered to Eridan]
Ampora, I met your moirail.
He said that me being ripped from my timeline and brought here means I have a second chance to make it up to you. I didn't really think of it like that and I don't really know how to apologize for something you haven't experienced yet, that sound fucking dumb. I mean, yeah, fuck, you were out of line and I'm not saying it's okay what you did, it's not okay that you fucking killed them. But I guess I'm saying I forgive you for it? You have no idea what I'm even apologizing and forgiving you for, so let me explain. Pay attention and prepare to get schoolfed.
Later on in the game you kill Feferi and Kanaya and blind Sollux because for some reason you get it in your damaged thinkpan (at the time) that that's a good idea. You fucking killed them, right in front of me. And destroyed the matriorb! I was too terrified to do a single fucking thing before you left, so I threatened you. I said some pretty fucking horrible shit to you, broke our pact and said I'd kill you.
Then Kanaya came back as a rainbow drinker or some hoofbeast shit and... well.. She cut you in half... With her chainsaw... I wasn't even around when she did it. The only reason I really knew was because after Gamzee snapped, he put all the bodies in tanks, chopped all the heads off the dead bodies and walked around with them... I couldn't fucking save anyone...
I'm sorry you die, and I'm fucking sorry I couldn't save you, or anyone for that fucking matter and even if you were a huge fucking conksuck murderous shitbag. I forgive you, I'm not going to hate you or other version of you for it, platonically or not... Everyone did a lot of stupid shit and neither one of us gain anything from me holding a grudge. I was thinking about it and I probably should be mad at you but there's really no fucking point to be anymore.

[Sector 3 is a popular destination for entertainment! People may be interested in seeing a movie at the theater, getting a drink or singing karaoke at the club, playing games at the arcade, or dropping by the Brave Vesperia headquarters -- on business or otherwise. In addition, Sector 3 has a lot of apartments and small houses; maybe people are just coming and going on their daily routine, or you might be seeing a friend who lives here.]
[Everyone who might have passed through Sector 3 today -- morning, noon, or night -- is invited to thread out a chance encounter here, or a date, or a gathering of friends. Just tell everyone where your character is and what they're doing, and go!]
[ (But if your occasion takes place after dark, remember there was a bomb threat if that's relevant to your character.) ]

[Here's York, hanging out in the Defense Force HQ wearing a black tailored suit with a bright red shirt. Never mind that he's pretending that he can play his incredibly fancy electric guitar--he has an Important Message, which will just have to be gently serenaded by his idle, random string plucking. So basically you have a gently smug FBI agent speaking to the tune of the flat, muted "not hooked up to an amp" noise associated with electric guitars.]
I've decided that we need to establish an investigative branch for the Force. With any luck, we won't need to solve any murder mysteries, but... well, I'd rather be safe than sorry.
So far, it's just me and Zach--FBI training, and all. If you aren't a Defense Force member, you'll have to join first, of course. Experience is preferred, but we might be able to give you some training. [Yes, you too can receive the finely-honed crime-solving skills of an imaginary friend and a man who tells his fortune with his coffee.]

APPARENTLY THEY LET JUST ANYONE TEACH A CLASS AROUND HERE.
... EXCLUDING PEOPLE WHO ARE DANGERS TO THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, I GUESS.
[ pause. Um, what is he supposed to say...? Have some uncertain wibbling - he's really not good at the whole communication thing. ]
SO, I'M TEACHING A COURSE CALLED TECH SHOP I, WHICH STARTS THIS AFTERNOON. IT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT BASIC PROGRAMMING AND ELECTRONICS, AND THE FINAL PROJECT IS BUILDING A MINIATURE ROBOT. THERE ARE SOME PREREQUISITES FOR PEOPLE COMING FROM LOW-TECHNOLOGY WORLDS, BUT IF YOU'VE USED A COMPUTER OF ANY KIND BEFORE COMING HERE AND ARE OF AVERAGE HUMAN INTELLIGENCE THEN YOU'LL PROBABLY PICK IT UP.
[ ... He thinks that has it just about covered? Hopefully people will come. Um... ]
IF NO ONE COMES I'LL PROBABLY JUST SIT IN THE CLASSROOM AND BUILD AN ARMY OF TINY ROBOTS, ANYWAY.
[ So you might as well attend, because maybe then he'll give you an important position in his New Order once he has conquered Marina with matchbox-sized robots. ]

[the video flicks on to a shot of Luna staring at something off-screen. It must be very interesting, because she is totally not looking at the camera.]
I don't think it's very fair for us to be here. [she starts off, no doubt these words are ones that everyone has heard!] We are underneath the ocean after all. The mermen and the other creatures that live in these waters must be terribly inconvenienced. I wouldn't particularly enjoy having a giant dome built across my home. I'd have to swim around or over it to get to the garden, and that would take more effort and time than it would have just swimming straight across.
[she pauses and for a moment it seems like she won't continue.] Has anyone asked them what they think?
[anyone who comes across sector three will see Luna walking slowly in a...spiral. Yes, that's right. If she sees you, she will probably approach first!]

20 December 2011 at 12:16 pm
Good morning, Marina! [Have a very smiley pink haired girl on your video feed!] For anyone I haven’t met, I’m Lacus Clyne and I’m very glad to meet you.
It seems as though we’re all going to be in the shelter today, so we should make the best of things. I was thinking that we should get together and have a big winter banquet! Anyone who wants to help cook should please feel free to come to the kitchens and assist, and if not you should still come and enjoy the food with us.
Dinner will be served at 5 in the main cafeteria, and after that maybe we could have fun playing games and watching movies together. I hope everyone has a good day, and I hope to see everyone at the feast!
[A few minutes later]
I just learned that today is also Ritsuka’s birthday! To celebrate there will be a cake and some special desserts and decorations. [as many decorations as they can find without access to the store.] Everyone please, stop by to wish him a happy birthday!
((OOC Notes: Mingle post, open to all! Reply to Lacus by [video] or there are several action options: [cooking] any time before 5pm ICly, [dinner] a huge buffet of almost anything you could want, or [after dinner] for card games, board games, and movies throughout the cafeteria and nearby common rooms! Your character is in no way obligated to be at all of these, but they could be if you want~
Also! A link to Ritsuka’s birthday party will be added once it goes up. There will be cake and lots of special desserts and pretty decorations in one area of the cafeteria.
If anyone wants to intentionally or unintentionally sabotage the food, please contact me OOCly before you do so. Thanks and ENJOY!))

[Jane had never believed in luck before, but she couldn't help but feel that someone or something was desperately trying to prove her wrong. She wasn't a fan of the ball and chain either, and alternating between trying to carry the iron ball and dragging it with her shackled ankle all day was wearing on her. Just a little, she told herself. Sure, she wasn't very strong to begin with, and she was already at the point of needing to stop for a moment every once in a while for the sake of her aching muscles, but she still forced a pout to her face.]
Man~! I just know that this stupid thing is going to give me a bruise...
[Jane shrugged in the most dramatic way she could manage. This was her way of coping, apparently.]

[ Those accustomed to a busy, if not hectic schedule such as Principal Lee should be kept occupied, lest their evil start showing. Ominously dark auras are unsightly and not pleasing to the Master and so he must find himself something to do and to share to keep said
crazy evil in check. ]
Good day to you, Marina. If some of you may recall the last time I have addressed the network, I have spoken of culinary applications of flowers.
I have personally undertaken experiments since then and today, for those still interested, I would like to share the recipe
I am following. [ And modified. ]
For those who would like to join me in passing time, please head to the Shelter Kitchen -- [ in such-such floor ]
and I will be more than glad to share what I know.
Thank you very much for your time.(( OOC: Threadjacking/mingling is welcome! ))

[The Doctor has something on his mind, Marina, and it's something that he doesn't want to keep to himself. Is it important? Who knows? The Doctor could write a thesis on the significance of toothpicks if the mood struck him. What is important is that the Doctor is in the mood to share, so on goes the communicator, and he's off, following the latest tangent to get stuck in his enormous Time Lord brain.]
Spring cleaning! Well, all right, winter cleaning. It's a brilliant idea, seasonal cleaning. Spend a day or two picking up all of those odd jobs you left off doing until you can't ignore them anymore. I never do spring cleaning, or winter cleaning, or cleaning in any other season you might think of. Too domestic. I'm rubbish at domestics. Besides, have you ever tried to clean a time ship that's bigger on the inside from top to bottom? It's next to impossible. You'll forever be missing rooms that she's moved about and getting lost in the archived sections and distracted by stuff.

[IT'S . The house in sector 5 is a nice house, a pretty house, probably once upon a time because now? It definitely needs a solid dusting and cleaning and the talents of those who are willing to help! most of the rooms are empty and messy with dust, and the kitchen looks like the concept of washing hasn't been introduced to it in a while, and the living room is terrible and the couch has a spot of (is that blood) on its linen. but it's nothing Brave Vesperia can't deal with, right?]

[HI MARINA. HIIIIIII. Yeah so, Regis has had some time to cool down after reacting rather strongly to Seira's ball and chain (YOU STILL HAVE A LOT TO ANSWER FOR, ACUMEN). And during that time, he put something together for
you heathens everybody.]
It has come to my attention that this prison is rather lacking in terms of elegance. I have attempted to look beyond this glaring defect, but my efforts were in vain. Because of that, I compiled a graph of sorts, using as a model one of the most elegant people I am honored enough to claim friendship with: Cadis Etrama di Raizel.
I hope it provides an informative introduction. ( NOT IC CUT OKOK )
If anyone has questions or requires further clarification, I will of course be happy to answer.[ooc; ........I don't even know. BUT I'M NOT SORRY.]
