[ Event: Summer Solstice Festival ]
29 June 2011 at 12:23 pm
[ Around noon, the robots that had been swarming the beach scatter, leaving a transformed landscape in their wakes. There are volleyball nets set up in the sand, along with colorful umbrellas and blankets beneath them. Part of the water has been sectioned off for water polo, while inflatable rafts in fanciful shapes are ready for use in the open area.
Ringing the beach are food stands serving street and festival foods: chin chin
, aloo tikki
, hot dogs, ice cream and shaved ice, and suchlike. There is one stand where a robot serves an alcoholic punch not completely unlike sangria. Several of the other stands also serve non-alcoholic drinks. Clean up robots zoom from place to place, picking up garbage. ]

[Someone is back to normal today. If you can't judge that from the natural smile via the video, maybe the three empty bowls of ramen next to her on the bar at the ramen shop might be a hint. Or possibly the fact that she's still there, waiting on bowl #4 to come up...]
So my schedule is mixed up in my head now, but I guess I kind of missed having my meditation classes, didn't I? This time traveling business is kind of complex...
I guess we can go back to having classes on Day 122 though. I was hoping the waterfall would still be freezing cold, but I guess it's summer now so we'll have to wait on that until the winter comes again... But we'll figure out something to do!
[Oh, here comes bowl #4, at least judging by the look in her eyes.] Let me know if any of you have questions!
[Click, the video disappears, and then so does more miso ramen.]

[private to Subaru Sumeragi and Kamui Shirou]
Hey, I need the two of you to come out with me this morning to pick up a few things. Not to mention there's something I want each of you to try on too~
It won't take long I promise.
It really is a beautiful day and all kind of things opening and going on. I hope that all of you have something to do that's a lot of fun this afternoon~ If not let me know and I'm sure we can think of something.
The 120th Day
20 June 2011 at 05:27 pm
Good morning, inmates. It is the 120th day of the third generation.
There is a new building in Sector 5, near the pizza and ice cream shops. There is now a coffee shop, per the request of inmate Danielle Harrington.
Inmate Hazama, please report to the hospital to retrieve your body. Inmate Orihime Inoue, the item you requested may be retrieved from the Defense Force.

[A certain returned spirit medium appears via video at the Training Hall, though something is a little off about her. Specifically, she looks rather unsteady, but nevertheless smiles at the camera as if nothing is wrong.
Nothing is wrong, after all, other than this mysterious migraine that just started out of nowhere.]
Um, has anyone seen Missile hiding around? I tried looking for her for a while, but whatever she's hiding as, she isn't reacting, and I haven't found two of anything yet...
[There's a brief pause, though she leaves the message public still.]
Oh, and sorry, Jennifer, but I don't think I can make the picnic today... Something's come up. It's nothing big, don't worry.
[Shortly after finishing this, Maya winces quite visibly, even through the smile, though that sinks a bit as her eyes go wide at something unseen and not in the direction of the camera.]
[Looking back up at the camera, Maya blinks in confusion, forces a smile again, and reaches for the buttons on the side of her communicator.] Oh, um, talk to you later... [The video quickly winks out.]
((OOC: She's been canon updated through the end of the third game.))

[It's once again Steel Samurai night at the cinema.
Maya has reserved a big screen for this showing once again, and there are plenty of snacks like the last time.
The second six episodes of the series are showing tonight. But even if you didn't watch the first six, the story's basic plot is given at the beginning of each episode anyway.
Expect a night of one-liners, cheesy/hammy dialogue, and other common tokusatsu show tropes.]
((OOC: Assume Maya made a public announcement this morning, because I got distracted and forgot to put it up earlier.
Event-style threading, like the last time
. Just make sure to give some context for when in the showing it is.))
Location: Sector 3 - Movie Theater / 8 PMish
The 103rd Day
21 February 2011 at 10:12 pm
Good morning, inmates, it is the 103rd day of the third generation. The weather system has converted, and spring like temperatures will begin to take effect soon.
In two days' time St. Valentine's Day will be observed. According to records, it seems that a large date event was held on the last occurrence with remarkable success. Inmates are free to organize an event if they wish to this time; there is no need to speak with me concerning this, save if any materials or organizational assistance is needed.
Earl Lloyd, your request may be retrieved at the entrance to Sector 0.

[It's early morning, and Ryu is already in the park, enjoying watching the dome light up.]
I've got a question… but I think I need an older person to answer it. Who's awake now?
[He's tired of feeling… not whole. He doesn't know how to try to be just himself… he's always just been incomplete.]
[[ooc; Action is open for the park, too! :3 ]]
[Open Video/Open Action]

[Keiichi looks sort of nervous and thoughtful- he's not really sure if he has the video thing working right, but he guesses he gets to find out!] I hope I have this working right... [Keiichi's tone switches a little, now that he's not just muttering to himself.]
Hello! I think I've been put in the wrong place! I was going to school, and- well, I woke up here! I'm pretty sure I haven't committed any crimes, so I think I'm in the wrong place and there's been a mistake! [Keiichi flashes the video a very awkward derp smile. He's sure it's just a mistake.] If someone could tell me who to talk to, to get this cleared up, I'd be very happy. Thank you!
...Do I hear dogs...? [And now Keiichi remembers that he might need to turn it off! Derp.]
07 February 2011 at 08:59 pm
[He doesn't usually swear as badly as he is right now. Nor does he feel nearly as calm as his flat, dangerously brittle expression suggesting. One minute, he was in the airport, about to board his first class flight back to Germany, and now, he's here. He's read the... the message on the thing attached to his head, impatiently and thoroughly scoured the contents of a pamphlet someone put in some sort of basket as though to console him (the nerve), and now he wants answers.]
What the hell is going on?
[Now his composure is starting to crack. A criminal--ironic how that accusation has plagued him for most of his career. What he's concerned about is the fact that he was apparently drugged and locked up somewhere. He doesn't believe he's under the ocean, because that's ludicrous. No, there is a simple (or not so simple), logical explanation for all of this, and he's going to get some answers now. He's unaware of the video being toggled on, or much less how to toggle it off.]
[Say, for one moment, he entertains this idea that all of this is real (which it is NOT). He has been removed from his time-line? By some sentient robot?]
[Now his knees are weak. He has to sit down. His breathing is harsh and he looks like he's not sure whether he wants to start raging, or just sort of break down. It's a little sad. Clearly he's fighting to keep himself composed, however, and with a few deep breaths, he calms. He's been in worse situations than this, and his first course of action is to demand his right to a fair trial.]
...Is anyone there? [warily]
[ Event: Ball ]
03 February 2011 at 08:26 pm
[Just as evening starts to fall, one of the parks in Sector 4 has been festooned with streamers, bright lights in a variety of colors, a big upraised dais, tables of refreshments, and music. It looks like a perfectly normal party from the outside. Optional masks are provided in little bins beside the dais, but you're responsible for your own costumes...!
...And if you're dressed as a character, the moment you step onto the dais, you will believe yourself to have led that character's life for your whole life. This effect will last until "midnight", in this case Sunday, even if you leave the party.]
01 February 2011 at 08:56 pm
Looks like the training hall's busy today. Does anyone know of a good place for meditation? [ because home is not quiet enough ] And Minako, I'm not going to the ball, so don't even think about finding me something to wear.
[ sooner or later she'll come across that beautiful waterfall in sector four, but for now she's wandering and making idle conversation. ]

[Duo was at the arcade. Not much for fancy dances and stuff unless he was forced to go, which he had a feeling the Host Club would probably be offering their services, he was avoiding getting a costume for as long as he could until he was told he had to take someone. At the moment, he was firing away on a first-person shooter game... one that was reactive to body movements, so he was ducking and dodging virtual bullet fire like a pro.]
28 January 2011 at 12:11 pm
[Ammy's wandering the park, lost in thought. After hearing that someone would use an innocent creature against another...
It isn't right.
She doesn't like thinking like this, so any distraction would really be welcome. Eevee is padding along after her, worried about mama. Why is she so sad...? :<]
[Action | Open | ATTN: Ushiro! ]
19 January 2011 at 11:14 pm
[this is a Subaru heading to the park with a hyperactive puppydog-- on a leash, like is proper!-- bounding around him excitedly. She appears to currently be investigating the ground, but takes off again. Despite her being a puppy, she rapidly takes Subaru with her, and she drags Subaru across the park. He doesn't seem to mind, laughing as he goes, until they finally flop onto the grass and she scampers all across him. He's waiting for Ushiro, but if you happen to be in the area-- pet the puppy? :D]
14 January 2011 at 02:51 pm
[It's starting to get late, but Ushiro can't sleep. Nakama arriving has brought up way too many things that he doesn't really want to think about.]
[He walks towards the park and sits down, staring at the swingset rocking back and forth. How many times had he watched Kana jealously as their father had pushed her on the swingset?]
[… And he wasn't even his father. Why couldn't he have been told sooner? He was thirteen, it's not like he couldn't handle it!]
[… Being this angry is just making him more tired. He sighs, and flicks on his communicator to broadcast.]
[Does Ushiro look tired? Probably. But call him out on it and he won't admit it.]
I've got a question. What's 'family' to you?

Good afternoon, Marina. For those of you privileged enough to sleep through yesterday morning's incident, my name is Kyouya Ootori and I am the Vice President of the Marina Asylum Host Club, which will be having it's first meeting shortly in the Education Center. Tamaki assures me that he's already announced his intentions of forming a Host Club within the facility, but I would like invite all those interested in joining the Host Club to attend this meeting.
If you should have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I would be happy to answer them.
[Kyouya's hijacked one of the larger rooms and is currently sitting at the table with his precious laptop that he's reclaimed in front of him. There's a small stack of papers next to him, mainly forms for the new members as well as general rules and guidelines. The set up is fairly standard - chairs, tables, assorted snacks, a tea set. Not as fancy as he was used to, but it would have to do for now.
Assuming Tamaki wasn't completely incompetent when recruiting, there should be a few people filtering through the door about now...]
((OOC: Everyone is welcome to comment on the video! And show up at the meeting, though you may get strange looks if you are of the female persuasion. Also, both handwaving and backtagging are perfectly acceptable if you are currently too busy to tag. And because this is the Host Club, there may be threadjacking everywhere.))

[ Rei blows on her cold hands, vainly pressing them together for warmth. What she wouldn't do for a good fire soul right now...or a coat. At least she had the scarf from the basket? She pauses mid-stride and sneezes, glaring at the bot prodding her from behind. ]
I'm going. Don't touch me.
[ And noooow she feels dumb for talking to it. Lovely. She couldn't wait to be released. At least ChibiUsa and Minako were here, and now Rei had some kind of -- foundation to go off on. She wasn't entirely helpless...to her relief. Rei opens the brochure back up idly and re-reads it for like the twentieth time. ]
This place really has everything, doesn't it? [ small pause ] Actually, is there a Shinto shrine - or any kind of temple anywhere around here?

Um, Cain? You can taste again, right? [Acumen said it was fine now...] Well, I made you a pizza like I said I would! I'm in the shelter kitchen, so... [Come here fast, before the potential rush brought on by this:]
--And uh, everyone else too! [He raises his voice a bit, but it has a slightly higher pitch now, bawww nerves] I-I've kind of-- I've made up a table of food. For everyone who was having trouble yesterday. I just thought it'd be nice... and maybe cheer people up.
I'm not sure how many people there are, or if I'll have enough, but... C-come if you like? [Finishes off lamely, and quickly cuts the feed. Man he sucks so much at this...]
[In the kitchen/dining area, he's pushed two tables together for the
miniature feast snacks he's slaved over since before dawn this morning. There's four large, quarter table pizzas on one side, two loaded with cheese, as many different kinds of meat as Emil could find, and his little twist of cute little octopus hotdogs on top (one of these pizzas marked off for Cain only, which Emil will be guarding religiously until he arrives), one an ultimate veggie lovers, and the last one the works.
And across from that, there's plates, cups, a few juice bowls, and fruit/ vegetable platters-- for the non-pizza eaters-- made up of, but not limited to: apple rabbits, kiwi tulips, strawberry stars, carrot flowers and turnip doves. And pawprint cupcakes for the sweets.
Basically, it's the most adorable refreshment table you've ever seen in your life]
[[ooc: MINGLE POST GOOOO. You don't have to talk to Emil(though some CR would be nice), and can just hang with others if you want~]]
07 December 2010 at 07:33 pm
I just realized something...[thoughtful pause from a girl that's been missing for quite a while...but she doesn't know that!] If it's this cold again already..?, that means I missed my birthday! I've never missed one before, and I certainly won't start now.
I'll have a cake with lots of candles~ And lots of presents~ And, oh! I can't forget the guests. What's a party without people to play with?~ [by this point she's swinging her legs around, her voice sing-song] I'll invite Mama and Naoya and Gin and Joshua and Xion and Ciel, Sebastian too naturally~, and Euphie and Akito...Jade, Conrad, Yuuri, Lelouch, Maya, Orihime, Yuuki, Sakamoto....
Exorcists too of course! Actually, Allen only - the rest of you Exorcists aren't wanted~ [♥]
oh hey it's the df's most popular criminal w-will be laggy....action's open for Wisely and Tyki and whoever's still at home!]
