[ Evening approached and however comfortable the library was, Kaname could not spend the whole of his stay researching. Not when there was no guarantee on the morrow that he would return to his world. And Yuuki was here and had been for some time. That thought alone, disturbed him, although he took some comfort in Zero's presence. He was the guard dog Kaname had crafted specifically for her after all.

Sliding out of his chair, Kaname slowly turned his communicator device on. No more hiding. He had the answers he needed. If he was to stay here indefinitely, he must be prepared for the worst. If Zero or Yuuki were aware of what he had done, what he planned to do… it would be best to pretend. He had lived long enough to be adept in at least that. ]</small>

[ Private to Yuuki ]

Yuuki, you've been remiss. You haven't once stopped to greet me. Did you not sense me nearby?

(( ooc: Current canon Kaname pretending to be just after time!skip Kaname. He's been in the library all day and he'll be making his way home to Sector 4 after this call. Feel free to intercept him at anytime or anywhere. ))

Eh... there really are a bunch of people today.

[Lifting a hand she scratches the back of her neck, turning around to glance at the many other people in the park. There hasn't been this many new arrivals at once for a while, has there? Despite looking a bit daunted by the numbers, she practically glows, beaming. Her appearance is brighter than recently, less tired and worn. She's confident back, straight as she stares into the device cheerfully.]

Morning, Marina! Today I wanted to make an announcement. I wonder if this is a good time...with all the confusion. But if we're all stuck here for a while, might as well--!

[Lifting up a colorful sign, it's adorned with many different rainbow colors and bunnies, with the word 'Ethics' written in the center of it all.]

Ta-da! Starting in a couple of days I'll be teaching my very own class. [They'll let just about anyone teach, huh.]

I'm teaching ethics! The program was put together by the president-- ahh! [Looking embarrassed] I mean-- [She falters again, nearly saying 'Headmaster' before catching herself] Kaien Kurosu, and I think with everyone's unique backgrounds and the diversity represented it could be a really good thing.

[Giving the peace sign she flashes a wide, toothy grin, fangs clearly visible as she glows.]

Everyone should attend! You don't have to worry about it being crazy hard like math or something. It'll be fun. And... Oh yeah--!

[Lifting a finger into the air, just remembering:]

I almost forgot! It's mandatory for those on the defense force.

[This is not where Haruka need to be, nor where he wants to be. His expression is somber as he stands in the middle of Sector 5, but the unease and displeasure evident in his expression will be hard to spot for anyone that doesn't already know him very well.]

Juri, you're not here as well, I hope.

[... and that's it. In Haruka's mind, that's all that needs to be said.]

[His eyes still feel so heavy, even as he shifts his head to look at the clock on his nightstand. It's already late afternoon. Did he really sleep for so long? Since yesterday morning when he arrived?

Kaname sits up slowly, thankful that the headache has somewhat depleted, along with the dizziness. He had asked both Juri and Haruka Kuran to set aside a few moments to speak with him. He's pretty sure that they know he wishes to talk about Yuuki. But he wonders how much of their sibling situation his adopted parents already know about at this time.

He pulls himself out of bed and washes up before heading downstairs. It is easy to pick up their scent, even after all these years. They are close by, and it would seem that Yuuki and Aidou aren't home at the moment. Kaname fills the teapot with fresh water before setting it on the stove. And then he places his headset on his head so that he can send a quick voice message To Juri and Haruka.]

Forgive me for sleeping through last night. If it's not too much trouble, I would still like to discuss a few things with you two. I will be waiting at the house.

[For those who have currently decided to view the video feed, the image in front of you is slightly muddled with static for a moment, but then the figure slowly materializes on the screen. It’s a strikingly beautiful man, one that many of you might be familiar with. He’s holding his hand to his neck, a bit of blood showing between his fingers as his eyes dilate slightly. His skin is paler and his eyes are filled with the sort of despair that takes years to matriculate. A sadness that lingers indefinitely in one’s conscience, slowly crippling the mind until the heart becomes almost completely barren.

And then he looks up, blinking at his surroundings before some measure of recognition evolves in his expression. His head falls back, the hand pressed against his neck wilting as it does, to show that the wound has been healed. His eyes flutter closed and his lips twitch open to reveal uneven breathing. His head hurts, he feels nauseous, and he can barely form an articulate thought, but he knows where he is. Kaname’s pale lips slowly drift into the barest of smiles.]

I guess this means… I've returned.
10 March 2010 at 08:55 am
Okay! Today is the day! I am owed dates and meetings with several people still. I want to start by making sure all the vampires that I won or made a deal with are ready to sit down and talk with me! In two hours time I want all of you to meet me in the kitchen so I can talk to all of you. Yes, this includes the grumpy one with the cat. I don't care how many times you say no, your friends will all be there. If you're a vampire and not invited, you can come too. I just want to know about your different worlds.

Oh yeah. Kyon! You better not be late or it will be the death penalty! Don't forget paper and pens, because you need to take notes! Just consider this a brigade activity for today, and don't slack on the notes like you do in class. I sit behind you and know you spend half your time doodling in your notebook! That means you need to be there too Mikuru!

Anyone else I won dates with, we need to schedule a time. Especially the guy that I got for free that promised to play games, cross-dress and read my mind! I'm not letting you off the hook just because you bargained to get me to stop bidding. Payment is mandatory, after all!

[Looks as if she's done and actually turns off the video function, but it flashes back on again.]

Oh! And before I forget. Kyon and Mikuru arrived here yesterday. They are my subordinates and will likely be doing observations for me. But keep in mind, they already belong to me! As cute as Mikuru is, you can't have her. She's already filling my moe quota!

But I need costumes for her. Maid, waitress...anything you can find! If I don't find anything good I might have to see if anyone can make some for her.

[Private to Conrad--Very much unhackable]

Conrad, it has been awhile. I was wondering if I might be able to trouble you for a moment of your time.

[After the disaster of his date with Cornelia, Oliver had spent the whole night on the beach, alone, until he had dragged himself back to the shelter when the artificial morning light had started to light up.  He had slept most of the day and after a quick dinner, he had walked back to the club, the only place he was certain he couldn't run into the purple haired princess.

And so he sits at a table, nursing a beer and his bruised ego.  The dart board is not too far from him and he keeps spinning one of the darts on the table.  He looks bored to death...]

[OOC notes: Please!!!  Feel free to come and poke him out of his grumpiness!!!  Ladies!  Come and be flirted with!  Gentlemen!  Come and bound with this poor sucker through the rite of getting drunk!  They can share battle stories and complain about women! XD]

Journey to Find the Missing Master )


[There's the sound of a kitten meowing loudly and scratching at something. This continues for a minute or so before it stops. Shortly later there is the sound of a cat screeching, followed by the sound of someone shouting in pain.]

OW--1,507!! AND A HALF! I swear, Kaname-sama!

[There's silence and another meow. The voice continues and sounds very confused.]

....A kitten?

{OOC: Aidou is back and has been canon-updated, so he'll be a bit confused. The voice and video options of this post are open, but the action is closed to Kaname and Lenalee.}

[In his brief fit of rage, he manages to turn on his communicator.]

[Furious, Grell slams his high-heeled foot against the wall, his fists clenched tightly. How could he possibly be put in such conditions??! William truly had no regard for him! At all! This was outrageous!! Just for-- for what, doing his job~?? Sure, Grell illegally modified his Scythe, but that was a minor offense! Nothing to warrant it be taken away and some... some hideous chain being put around his ankle!!!]

William T. Spears, you will pay for sending me here!!! I did nothing to warrant being sent away!

[He takes a deep breath in an attempt to calm himself]

And, to make it worse, you take away my Scythe, put me in th-these hideous shackles, and force me to wear this monstrosity of a hat??! I can't possibly wear this! It does nothing for my hair... NOTHING!!!

It's probably best to keep everyone aware, and I don't find this to be a bad thing at all. Rido Kuran has vanished from the dome. I'm sure there are certain individuals who already know... [She pauses, knowing that likely Zero, and perhaps the other hunters would already be up to date with this] But I thought that people might be happy to know. At the very least Marina is a little bit more safe. I can't foresee him coming back either. [She might sound a bit confident at that.]

Probably a bit more sadly, though...Hanabusa Aidou has disappeared as well. It's a good thing, if he returned home like I did. I'm sure he's a lot happier this way. [She sounds a bit sad but accepting because she's happy for her friend. He's free.] If anyone had any plans with him I'll apologize on his behalf. He won't be able to keep those engagements.

[Yuuri has been looking over his clothes to wear tonight. It's Josh's fault really. He's the one who even brought up what he'd be wearing. It's not like it's a big deal. They're both boys so it isn't even like it's a real date or anything.

Maybe he should wear the blue one. Josh likes blue, doesn't he?

Totally doesn't matter though!

His eyes catch on the wrapped box Yuuki had given him the day before. He hate some of the chocolate covered strawberries, but somehow he forgot to open it. Well, he should do that! What could it be? The ribbon falls away. The wrapping paper slides off...]


Y-Yuuki! You can't just give someone something like this for Valentine's Day!!!

[He holds up a pair of non-royal underwear and then immediately drops it again.]
24 February 2010 at 09:54 pm
[The video appears, revealing what appears to be a young man - or woman (it's rather hard to tell, actually), with long back hair, adorned in jewels and an outfit clearly designed to emulate flames. Golden eyes peer into the screen with a mixture of confusion, amusement, and quiet sereness. As for where he is? It seems he's sitting down in what looks like some sort of park area beneath the shade of a tree.]

You’ll have to forgive me if this is an inappropriate means of communication, but I’m unsure how to work these devices. 

All the same, it seems I have arrived here at the disadvantage. My name is Ashura-ou. To be honest I have no idea where I am, nor even how I arrived here. While I am aware that it may be impossible to explain my arrival, I hope that the question of where I am is easier to answer. This... Sentience has informed me of the name of this place: Marina Asylum; though I am not entirely sure what an 'asylum' is or why it insists on addressing me as 'criminal'.

At any rate I have tried exploring this place on my own for the time being, but have found that without the aid of someone who has been here longer I am little more than confused. There are many technologies and magics here I have never seen before. I would appreciate it if I could receive answers as soon as possible. I do not wish to be an imposition, but there’s little I can do about that if I am ignorant of your ways.

[It should be noted that his voice is melodic, giving no indication of his sex either.]
24 February 2010 at 10:33 pm
[There's silence and then the sound of static like someone is speaking but it's not clear. A low chuckle. The voice begins to become more audible.]

--where he can find me?

[More silence. Then the video clicks on and there's only a smirk at first that can be seen. Slowly the video pulls back and finally the full face of a lightly tanned and dark haired man comes into view. He's looking directly into the camera with dark eyes like burnished gold, a necklace like a leash around his neck and a shirt indecently closed--exposing almost all of his very well sculpted chest. A light hum of escapes him. The voice he speaks with is amused, but smooth.]

Another prison? But I just left one and that was only for a visit~

Would someone mind filling me in on all the pretty details? It's so much better to hear a kind, living voice.

[Johnny is sitting laid back on a couch in one of the common rooms. You may notice him looking very relaxed and as if nothing about the situation concerns him. The metal ball is what his one leg is propped up on.]
[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!]

An auction, huh? How many can I buy~?

[Private to Yuuki Kuran]
... selling yourself like a common prostitute. Very well. If you want to be treated like that, so be it.

[Private to Kaname Kuran]
I'm disappointed that you'd allow this... She is meant for better things.

[a rustle, a snap then-] HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!~ [the sparkles may not be your imagination and Minako beams into the camera]

Hey everyone!~ As all you cuties might very well know, and if you don't well now you do, today is the date auction! Sentience has given me and C.C. the authority to run this fantastical event and - of course - what's a fantastical event without some fantastical people to be there?

IN OTHER WORDS - [whips out a rather formidable LIST and waves it just long enough for you to glimpse at some of the names already written.] It's sign up time! Everyone who would like to be biddee please respond to this message, and your name will be added to the list.

Remember, for those who sign up there are some requirements. 1! You must come in costume or dress or something just very pretty. 2! Biddees are allowed to become bidders if they so choose to. 3! THE DATE MUST BE DONE.

[and here she gives a rather devious smile]
Those on the list that are...less than enthused will get a friendly nudge from our very own captain of the defense force, Gino Weinberg~ And of course, anyone who would like to...volunteer others are welcome to do so! The event will be announced by Sentience later today!

Hope to see everyone there!~

[You can see a blue-eyed brunette, turning her head on all sides, confused and scared. She was wearing a hospital linen, and by her appearance, it seemed she went through some kind of labour, so she looked fatigued. Realizes she's not in the hospital anymore, neither in school or at home, but in some kind of prison. Suddenly notices some kind of translucent screen over her eyes is on, placing one hand on the headset that was in her ear. After knowing her crimes, Adrianna makes a heavy sigh of frustration, her head down for a moment but recovering instantly, giving such a strong glance and starts to scream.]

Fine!!! So what if I was on drugs??? I'm clean now!!! I'm a different person!!!

[Then... some tears are noticed in her eyes, finally falling through her cheeks.]

... And...

[Her voice could scarcely articulate any words, mumbling in the process. But she finally managed to speak with bated breath.]

And... I knew I wouldn't be a good mother... I'm too young for that...

[She covers her face with both hands, sobbing without restraint.]
27 January 2010 at 09:38 pm
Oh, Your Majesty~! [A sing-song voice breaks through the communicator just as the video comes on and a bright blue eye winks playfully at the camera.]

I got my uniform today and it fits just right~ [Video zooms out and Josak is clearly visibly in one of the cheerleader uniforms that is just his size, and tight enough to show off all the muscles and his "breasts". Why yes those are those are some great-shaped legs, aren't you jealous? He shakes his pompoms and strikes a pose before looking around curiously.]

Are we having practice for the cheerleaders, too? I would think we would want to learn some routines before our big game. [He has been studying about cheerleading at the library!]
