[There's a long line of bamboo at the beach, their stalks curving gently over the quiet trickling of waves. Further back on the beach are colored lanterns and little tables with pens and sheets of paper and string.

You're supposed to write poems or notes to your loved ones who can't be with you today, right...?]

I'm having my picnic now, if anyone wants to join me! [The man on the screen is laying down a blanket along with a huge picnic basket. There's obviously a lot of food inside for anyone who just so happens to come alone. He also has a few gigantic photo albums laying down, just ready for the viewing.] I have photoalbums and snacks! So please come!

[The man on the camera is ridiculously happy looking. How can you not come down to the Dolphin Observation Deck and join him?]

[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.]

[It's bright and early in the morning, but he'll just say this anyway. He figures the leader of the defense team will wake up early. He seems like that kind of person...even though Kaien really doesn't even know him...at all.]

Good morning! You lead the defense team, right?

[Video - Filtered from Zero and Yuuki/Announcement!]

Hey! If anyone wants to join me...I'm going to be looking over my photo album and having a picnic by the dolphin observation deck this afternoon! If anyone wants to join me, they can! Don't tell Yuuki and Zero though, okay? They might take my album away!

[He looks and sounds so excited as he announces this to you all...even though it's so early in the morning.]

[Lacus looks terrible. Her hospital gown neckline reveals discolorations around her throat that will soon bruise, the whites of her eyes are blood red from burst capillaries. Even around her eyes and ears is purple-tinged, and when she speaks her voice is weak and raspy, barely more than a whisper.]

[She's smiling though, and what little tone she has to her voice is upbeat.]
Good morning. I apologize for the interruption, but there was an incident last night, as you can see. For the time being, I think it would be best if Gino handled any matters of new recruits himself. [Here she pauses, taking in quick, shallow breaths.] So please refer any interested parties to him.

I should be back to my regular duties in a few days --

[ There is the sound of the door closing. Lockon steps into view, speaking before he's in decent range of the microphone. His tone is pleading, with a tinge of upset. ] --you doing? You should be resting...

[Her smile doesn't change as she glances away from the camera.] Welcome back, Neil.

[ He sets the tray of tea down on the nearby table, along with his communicator, and then holds a hand out for her headset. ] Dear, just turn this off for now. Please?

Of course. [Making no motion to turn it off.] In just a moment, I'll be through.

Alright. [ Lockon sighs, sitting down on the edge of the bed, and reaching for her hand. ] Make it quick. You need to take care of yourself, first. [ But then he'll be quiet, and let her do what she needs to. ]

(( OOC: Lacus will be answering voice threads in this post! But be warned that Lockon can and will interrupt most, since he is feeling particularly protective today. Also, there will be [Action] available for visitors, but some may not get to see Lacus. Sorry for my overbearing muse. OTL ))

[Day 78: the Peregrine Mendicant is everywhere residential today. Everywhere. Her route began earlier than usual, her mail bag bulging with an unusual amount of letters, walking with a swift and purposeful stride. She will still stop to talk and introduce herself to any curious inmates she hasn't met before, but no stopping for tea or extended conversations. ...Also, she saves Gin's area for last.]

  • Maes Hughes: a letter from Jennifer.
  • Jun Ushiro: a letter from Jennifer.

  • From Midori: Baseball game invites to EVERYONE. Yes, even you. There is no escaping the mail.

  • The Peregrine Mendicant: package from Guilford!

[ Today wasn't hard, really. Yesterday was the hard day, adjusting to having Elysia around one more time when he'd finally just begun to try to accept the fact he'd never get that chance. And now she was gone, just like that. Missing her still felt guilty, somehow.

He nudges a bar napkin along wood grain with his glass-- the second so far tonight, slow sips of whiskey to try and ease himself back into a happy place. ]

[Seemingly unperturbed by her situation, a little girl with dark blond pigtails has decided to make the best of things and can be found drawing in chalk on one of the walkways. She's humming to herself and doesn't seem to have a communicator. What was that funny thing? Oh well... leaving it behind. Around her are strange circle designs that, if you know Alphonse or Fletcher, might be recognizable. They don't do anything, as she's just emulating her big "brothers".]

This... I don't want to be here! I liked living with Mr. Hughes, Mr. Mustang, Miss Hawkeye and Dakota... Wh-what happened to Dart? Give him back! I already lost my brother, don't... don't take him away too... At least... let me go back home if you're going to take me away...

[Nana's usually good about staying inside when it's night time, but sometimes her restless little mind can't sleep. When that happens, Nana likes to take walks. She's good and doesn't bother anyone, quiet as a mouse, but tonight is different. Tonight isn't safe like other nights. No, tonight the dome is gray scale and everything is terrifying. Especially the creatures roaming about the place and the strange stuff falling from the sky.]

Why...Why are the colors gone? The- [Are they monsters? That's what they are, aren't they?] The scary things...They won't leave Nana alone-! Papa! [A reflexive cry, of course, since Papa isn't here and hasn't been for awhile. Still, she screams, running as best she can and trying not to fall into the gaping holes in the street in an attempt to reach home as fast as possible.]

[Jennifer's in the shelter kitchen teaching all the robots how to make quiche and fruit tarts and miniature cakes and various other finger food type things! It's gonna be a long day, but she's so excited, she hardly minds in the least. After all, just because a bot can follow a recipe, doesn't mean they can actually make things! Of course, that means there's an awful lot of samples lying around too...]

Do a little daaaaance.

[Suddenly, more demanding,] OBEY. [GIR laughs while he orders some angry bots to escort every single one of you to one of the parks. Fighting back will only result in punishment...and believe him, you don't want to know what GIR has cooked up for you then.

While you walk you may notice that dawn has suddenly become night again, the lighting is still working though it's all very...vibrantly colored and disco-y--maybe a strobe light here and there--and that the once peaceful silence has turned into blaring techno.

GIR starts to sniffle happily.]

Y-you're all so beautiful.

...Acumen? ...Hellooooooo? LET'S MAKE BABI--


[Giggle while GIR proceeds to mess about with certain things in his new surroundings, gleefully asking what 'this does' or 'that does' in the process.

GIR eventually decides that he rather likes the dome in nighttime, so for now all you'll be seeing is darkness. But of course breakfast time doesn't have to suffer because of this! There's a gasp because now GIR has some ideas!

Should you be worried? That is entirely up to you.]


((ooc: Ok, guys, today's the day to meet your new Vermin Overlord! First off, you can always refer to this post for a day-to-day schedule of what's happening. This morning Orihime and Ribbons will be given special attention! GIR will be sending robots to Orihime's house to pamper her senseless and give her candy and as for Ribbons, congratulations, you will be sent a huge shipment of tacos with bacon in them.

[There is an androgynous three-foot-tall robot in a yellow dress and a bow on its head hanging around outside an apartment building in Sector 3, dribbling a basketball nimbly from one hand to the next. Looks like Sentience has gotten the hang of fine motor coordination.]

The school seems quite successful so far. It is strange -- it has been my experience that although most if not all of those resources are already in place for those interested in learning, they had been largely under-utilized.

I suppose it is the element of connection that makes a learning environment engaging.

So today the school officially opened, huh? So the school year starts... it brings back memories! The fresh smell of paper and pencils, the studious atmosphere and the opportunity to learn exciting new things. I remember it as if it were yesterday- of course, the school I attended wasn't nearly as interesting as this one. Congratulations, miss Euphemia-- for organizing and getting such a large project started successfully. I'm sure it'll bring on good things.

I'm even looking through the catalog myself! [ Haha! so looking at you, tech courses. ] I'm not so sure I'm ready to relive the basics, I barely passed Algebra the first time around... If anything, I think I'll try expanding my horizons and look into new things.

Hm, I didn't know you were an Alchemist, Fletcher! Hosting an Alchemy class with Al? Don't show off to the girls too much! [ said in totally joking manner mixed with a chuckle ]

Oh, and it's been a few days hasn't it, Jennifer? If you're up for another cup of coffee, I would be too. Is Yuuri attending school here? [ will never tire of Happy Parent Hour ]

[Guess who is excited for school? Nana is. She is so excited she is going to explode.]

Nana can't believe that school is starting tomorrow! Isn't that amazing? Nana's never been to school before but it sounds so very, very nice. They will teach letters and reading to Nana. It will be so fun!

Who is teaching letters and reading? Nana would really, really like to learn and will be very, very good in class and do everything the teacher says to do! Will there be a class for drawing? Nana has only tried it once or twice, but it would be neat to learn what more colors are and...and...other drawing things.

Umm...Nana has a question though. What is a 'curriculum'? Nana heard this word but isn't sure what it means. Is it important for school? Do people need special things to go to school? Does school have rules? Nana doesn't want to get in trouble by accident!

[Although the post is directed to Jennifer, it is not private at all! Why should it be private if it's such bright news?]

Jennifer-san, it looks like I'm going to need your help, ahaha!

[For someone asking for help, he doesn't sound unhappy at all! It's because he has such happy news. In fact, he can hardly contain himself as he says the following words:]

I'm getting married, ahahahaha!

[Gino's spending the morning in the HQ with his communicator off, trying to get caught up after last night's disasters. So many injured -- with no real explanation yet -- no one taking the credit -- Acumen seemingly in denial -- and everyone is completely right to be uneasy about this. The monsters are gone now, but what if they return tonight?

[He's a little harried, and more than a little tired after a night handwaving helping, but he's also expecting visitors, so feel free to stop by.]

[Winry's communicator voice channel has been left on since talking to Al last night, having been too drunk to think to turn it off. She did manage to take it off her head at least, so that it came to a rest next to her pillow for the rest of the night.

After several hours of the microphone transmitting sounds of ruffling sheets and more or less silence otherwise, the blonde wakes up sometime after the morning announcements, head pounding and a rather sick feeling in her stomach.

The microphone doesn't pick up what she says very loudly, but there's a noticeable moan of pain followed by three words:]

Ohhhhhhh, my head....
