[ It was an interesting sight, watching Fou scuttle around corners, body hunched over something clutched in her arms. She may have been kicked out of the shelter, but she was hardly going to take it standing down!

At least, she won't once she figures out a spot to bunk down for the night. :( ]

[Sup, folks. Have a Hideki poking at the screen.]

Is it on? I thought these things were supposed to tell you when they started recording! Uh.... Right! I'm Hideki Motosuwa. [Smile!] Alright, so I read everything in these brochures and I gotta say... ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?

Acumen? Supernatural abilities? Britannian? I may not have remembered much from school but I know there's not a language called that! Oh, did you mean British, maybe? I always thought they just called that English. -- Wait, that's not the point! What's up with these welcome packets!? What is this, a vacation? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying tie me up or anything like that. It's not really my thing, if you catch my drift. I'm just saying that it's sketchy! I mean, is it really alright to give criminals a movie theater? There's even a baseball team!

I'll just get to the point -- I know that I'm innocent. Just how many of you are really criminals?

[New people were arriving today. But Marie wasn't watching for them this time. There would be time for that later. She hadn't forgotten. And she didn't want to neglect them but... something had been bothering her for a few days.

So instead, she could be found in the library, acting a bit strangely. Strangely because she's never done this before. It's not clear at first glance, what it is, but there are a number of books sitting at her side. She's reading one of them, and looks pretty focused.

But then, it draws a reaction from her. A soft, kind of giddy smile as she reads through the text.]

ooc: Marie is currently going through a series of books, interested in relationships and the emotion known as love. She's trying to keep a low profile but please feel free to pester her and ask what this is all about.

Snow's right around the corner, and that got me thinking... Would anyone be left who can work with textiles and things like that? [ Neil scratches his neck and leans back. The view is of his living room, and he's seated on the couch, clad in a simple green pullover and corded slacks. ] I'm looking for some custom coats to keep the snow and water off of a buddy of mine.

[ There's a pause and then his brows shoot up when he realizes that he forgot a crucial point. He holds out his hand. ] It's not a big job, but the shape might be kind of ah, ... unique. [ Suddenly, a large orange ball hops into his open palm and spins around so his red eyes are facing the communicator on the coffee table. ] Haro here, and I, would really appreciate your help. There are a few others in the dome who would probably be interested in the idea, too. [ A knowing wink to the camera. See? He has all the haro owners covered with this plan. ]

I don't have a lot of skills, or things to offer, but I'll be very thankful for the time saved cleaning my buddies up when they come in from outside. [ All those haro units out there without jackets. Please... think of the haros. ]

[ Private : Allelujah Haptism, Soma Peries / Marie Parfacy ]
[ And he figures this call is long overdue. Not only has he not talked to Alle in quite some time, but he also has yet to meet the new arrival face to face.

Of course, that doesn't mean he can't give Alle just a little hard time about it. His tone is airy and there's a teasing edge to it. ]
Oy, Allelujah. Don't you think it's about time you introduced me to your girlfriend?

- Private to Allelujah and Akito -

[She was a bit nervous. And that was a bit of an understatement. She was coming to live with Allelujah, so really... she was really very happy. This was what she wanted, no doubt. And his roommate seemed so very nice... So what reason did she have to be nervous? No matter what it was, she was certain that she did feel it.

It took her a moment of staring at the door to gather up a bit of courage and knock.

And instinctively her hands immediately fell in front of her, fidgeting slightly. Moving in with them wasn't going to cause any trouble, right? It was a big step after all... wasn't it?]

Ahh, how unreal! This is unbelievable! It’s almost like the premise of a video game except this is real life! Just think of all the possibilities that could come from a set-up like this! The forbidden romance between two criminals; a boy and a girl trying to find their way home, all the while seeking comfort in one another as the dream of ever finding a way out gets farther and farther away! There are so many possible scenarios it’s almost unbearable!
If only Anri-chan and Mikado were here with me! She would be perfect as the leading lady beside me and him the perfect sidekick, supporting us in our perils as we try and keep the flames of our love alive while spending eternity together in this cold, dark prison! [Which is a strange thing for someone who is standing in broad daylight to say, but he’s on a roll so let’s not question this statement quite yet.] I suppose in their absence I will have to find others to replace them.
I’m sure that won’t be too hard. In a prison full of such lovely ladies, there must be many of you just dying to win the love of someone as handsome and loving as I! Yes, I can see it now, every one of you has some trait that makes you worthy of my love. There is no need to fight over who gets the part as my leading lady, though! There is more than enough of me to go around for all of you and I am more than happy to accommodate all of you. [And with that, there is a wink and the cut of the feed.]

[ Currently in a front of a convenience store, Setsuna stands there with a faintly blank expression. But if one can look harder, he's actually pondering about something.

Pondering. While drinking out of a milk carton.

He's thinking about what he could practice cooking for breakfast today. He's getting sick of butter and toast. Plus, it's about time that he moved on from just toasting bread. ]


[ A light glance to the side, he notices one of the bots pass by peacefully. He would ask the bot for thoughts, but... they don't even eat. It would feel silly.

... He'll just make a short network inquiry instead. Afterwards, he can properly shop for what he needs. ]

[ video ]

[ Setsuna slightly lowers his milk carton down. Though, the straw is still visible in view. The background clearly displays the front of the convenience store. He remains with that unchanged expression. ]

Marina Asylum. Good morning.

[...] I wish to inquire: What is your preferred breakfast?

[ and a tinier voice, while eyeing to the side (he didn't mean to mumble this one): ] Do the bots eat?

[Moji is all over the shopping district at the crack of dawn, because he's got a lot of catching up to do now that his ball and chain have been removed. His first stop is the clothing store, where he picks up a coat and some replacements for the rumpled, dirty dress shirt and pants in which he arrived.

After heading back to the shelter to change and eat, you can find him in the pet cafe, sitting cross-legged on the floor and absentmindedly petting a rabbit that has come to sit in his lap. He's still not sure about getting a pet, but he's seen how happy they've made other people, and he does need some form of close company. Surely he can allow himself that much.

Find him in either place and say hi, if you like!]

[The woman who shows up on your screen this time Marina, looks upset. In many ways. At times it may appear clear that she is torn about this whole situation.]

I will only say this once - my name is Soma Peries. I don't care why I've been brought here. I accepted the weight of my crimes long ago. But why should I be punished here? You are not the ones with the right to place judgment. [No, that was the people that she had hurt. Back home. But even so...]

I ask you now... who are you all, and why are you here? [Her voice is a bit cold and calculating like the ex-soldier she is, but there's a hint of the well-meant concern and curiosity there, buried underneath her harsh exterior.]

And... Allelujah Haptism... if you can hear this... [Clearly she's not pleased, or comfortable with this at all, hesitating a bit. She huffs.] ...don't make her worry. [The same as 'don't make me worry', but Soma won't admit that.]
