[Good afternoon, Marina! Today, there's a transmission from Robin. He's sitting in the park and...okay is he really covered in robins? Yes, yes he is. There's one on each shoulder, one on his head and a few scattered around his legs as he sits on the ground.
Instead of looking irritated, he just chuckles a little and smiles at the camera.]
I just thought everyone would appreciate the visual pun of Robin covered in robins. I swear I didn't plan this-- they just flew over to me. Good thing it's only for a day. I couldn't get anything done while covered in robins.
How about you guys? Any interesting encounters today?
[Should you venture to the park, you'll see Robin sitting under a tree with his robins. He's kind of given up trying to shake them off. They just flock back or follow him around. Fortunately, he does like robins and, well, most animals. Feel free to run into him, maybe literally. Just don't mess with the robins; he won't like that.]

[The feed clicks on to the sound of a voice all but dripping in smugness. It belongs to someone who, apparently, has found no shortage of amusement with his current situation.]
Ahh, how scary! Trial? Conviction? How could someone like me, who's never done anything wrong in his whole life, be convicted of any kind of crime? [He chuckles quietly -– okay, maybe 'never done anything wrong' is a bit of an exaggeration.] And calling me “inmate”? So rude. I do have a name!
Really, though... what an interesting situation. To be pulled away from home so suddenly like that; it's disconcerting to say the least. But what's the use in lingering on what's already done, hm? There must be so much more to this place than this little.. ah, welcome lets on.
I'd like to know more. About everything. About all of you, whoever you are. There must be a lot of fascinating people here if this is indeed some kind of prison.. [He's getting more and more excited as he continues.] So many terrible people who've done so many terrible, terrible things. I wonder, do you feel bad about any of it, now that you've obviously been caught? Or do you still think you're just an innocent victim caught up in someone else's mess? I'd really like to know what you think~! [He starts to laugh, but cuts out a second or two later.]
[video/action] Beach Party!
23 May 2012 at 06:39 pm
[Michiru has been busy today. She had woken up with sudden urge to throw a party so she had spent most of the morning setting up her idea and finally she is ready to let people know about it.
As the video feed turns on, people will notice that a portion of the beach has been set up for a beach party including drinks, snacks, and appropriate beach games. And of course the teal-haired Senshi throwing the party]
Good afternoon, Marina. It seemed like today is as good a day as any to have a beach party. I have everything that I thought of for games and snacks, but if you can think of, feel free to bring it as well. [And now for the fun part...]
And just to make it a little more fun, let's make it a clothing optional beach party. But please wait until you get to the beach for those who do not wish to join us.
See you here soon.[And video feed out]
[ooc: Why yes, she did say clothing optional. Michiru's all set up at the beach and will stay for as long as there are people there or until the gas wears off which ever comes first. Create threads and tag amongst yourselves and above all, have fun!
If you want to respond to Michiru's video post or interact with her, there is a thread here. Otherwise, notifs are off]

[Nasuti wasn't too surprised that the people who signed up for the book club seemed to share similar tastes...perhaps it was due to similar personality types? That's what she liked to think, at least. Even so, it was proving to be a challenge to find just the right book selection to kick off this endeavor. Maybe she was putting too much pressure on herself, but picking the right book could very well make or break the club, after all.
Perusing the aisles, skimming the spines of many books, both worn and some apparently untouched, Nasuti had a difficult time letting any of the titles sink in. Maybe she should've invited Seiji along. He was opinionated enough, and probably one of the more difficult parties to please, as far as those signed-up were concerned.
Well, as far as she knew, anyway...]
...just need to find the right thing to stick out at me...[She muttered beneath her breath tiredly. She hadn't expected so much energy to be put towards this, but she wanted it to be perfect. This was her first impression on quite a few of the people here, after all.]

[Michiru was finishing the last few touches of setting up for her guests. A table set for three with a few different desserts including pumpkin pie like she planned to make a few days ago. She had also stocked up on a few different drinks as well, not sure what her guests liked.
She had called Robin earlier in the day to confirm their plans and when he had told her a friend of his had arrived, Michiru had invited her to come as well. The Outer Senshi did like having company and guests around and ever since Minako had gone home, it had been a bit lonely around the house so she didn't mind the extra company. There were more than enough desserts for three people]

[A young teen has left the hospital wing, journeying off to the computer lab. He has been poking around the available databases. One catches his eye. The Criminal Database. It would be useful to know about everyone around him.]
[He begins a videofeed: ]
Greetings, monsters. Or humans, whatever you want to be called. I see a computer- with further reaching arms than Mother- has collected you. Why it does this instead of partial genocide is beyond me. I will not question it for now. It is perhaps there are no innocent humans.
However, as a minority, I feel you should each inform me of what kind of monster you are! It is only fair, right?

[Sector 4 is a beautiful, landscaped residential area of the dome, where you'll find many homes, as well as parks, a butterfly pavilion, and a beach with an observation deck for the dolphins! It might be a little chilly for a swim, since it's still winter, but there's plenty of things to do.]
[Maybe you're visiting a friend here, or want to get zen by the meditation waterfall, or sit by the koi pond, or admire the massive cherry blossom tree still in full bloom. Or maybe you're just passing through on your way to the coffee shop in Sector 5 or the arcade in Sector 3, and waiting for people to ambush you!]
[So what are you doing? Anytime of day, with anyone! Just put down your characters and tag around!]

[Michiru had decided to get some inspiration from nature this evening. So she heads out to the koi pond with her violin case. Since no one is there at the moment, she finds a good spot to stand, which just so happens to be on a rock in the middle of the water and starts playing. If someone is observant they might notice she's wearing stilettos and standing on a potential slippery rock.
She's not necessarily playing anything in particular, just what she feels like playing, making mental notes of anything she might want to use again. Even so, she's perfectly aware of everything that's going on around her]

[Roxas has acquired ~*~pixie dust~*~, straight from Neverland. you might have heard of it. you think a happy thought, and you fly! nothing has ever made him happier than flying, and so he's excited enough that it's hard to remember that he wants to share it with other people. there's no harm in dusting himself now, and then going to find his friends, right?]
[so you might see an extremely happy blond Nobody flying around the dome like in a certain fairy tale, trailing glittering gold pixie dust]
Hey -- anyone who's interested in the photography club! We should have our first meet-up soon. But I thought about giving an assignment first. How about... bring a photograph of something straight up. Like lying on your back under a tree, or a perspective shot of the clocktower? Something like that. Be creative!
There's a room in the school where you can develop your film or print out a picture on nice paper, when you have one you like.
[if you're looking close enough you might notice that he's glittering with gold or that he's bobbing in the air a little, or see from his glowing face that he's in an amazing mood. but he's inspired, so he's rambling about his photography club!]

[ Kohran is in a good mood, thanks to yesterday's festivities. She had taken note of Sentience's query, though she thinks she might need more time to ponder over her answer. However, something had been nipping at her brainstems and people will find that this is completely unrelated to machines/robots/general tinkering as she makes her broadcast: ]
Good day, Marina! How are you all doing today?
I was just wondering, would anyone be interested in holding a stage play?[ She holds up some of the scripts that she had requested from Acumen, notably The Azure Sparrow, Trip to the Occident, and Thousand Furs. ]
We will need actors, people to work on costumes, lights, sounds and stage décor! It won't be something too big, I guess -- something light and fun where we can all work together! What do you think?(( OOC:
Hiatus schmiatus Come one, come all! There's long-term CR to be had (as plays aren't assembled in just days), and time-killing activities for your kids! Oh, and threadjacks are welcome in this post! ))
[Gamewide Mingle: Thanksgiving]
07 April 2012 at 08:25 pm
[At the entrance to Sector 5, several very long tables have been set up outside. Low light is provided by street lamps hung up just for the occasion, a cozy dining room in the middle of the street. There's turkey, mashed potatoes, candied yams, cranberry sauce, and many, many other Thanksgiving favorites
. A warm, printed message at the center of the table asks:In the tradition of the holiday known as Thanksgiving, please feel free to enjoy this meal and think about all the things over the last year for which you are most grateful.
Come one, come all! Food covers the tables, enough for the prison's entire population, courtesy of the bots. Have a nice big dinner with your fellow inmates, and get your CR on!]

Good morning and hello to those who just arrived. My name is Michiru Kaiou. I am the new music teacher. The previous instructor of the class has left the dome and I just wanted to introduce myself. The music class will start up again on day 160. Anyone is welcome to come.
Also those who I talked to about the violin lessons, please let me know what would be a good for us to start having lessons. I don't want to schedule them over something someone already has planned.
[ooc: if she talked to your character about violin lessons before, you don't necessarily have to reply with a time; we can just handwave it]
[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.))

[ So, there's crying.
It's not particularly bad or hysterical, but it's clearly coming from someone young. The video isn't position particularly well, because Luca has no idea what the communicator even is or how it's supposed to be used.
Instead he's apparently been smacking it against something in frustration, causing into to cut out and then start again every few seconds. There's a young face, red hair, and tears. ]
--ther, where are you? I can't get th'--
--an' it's heavy!
[ Finally the headset is dropped, abandoned as Luca starts at the ball and chain attached to his foot once again. ]
[ ooc; herp, what is being able to read and know electronics, so the headset thing is kind of...awkward. oops! ]
06 March 2012 at 11:43 am
Alright, I'm stumped, and it's pretty hard to stump me. I get that I'm in prison and there's apparently no escape. If you crack the glass, all the water pours in and even if you manage to get out, the 168.327 times normal gravity will crush you flat. Clever. But this really doesn't look like a prison. I mean, what prison hands out gift baskets? Not exactly the most intimidating first gesture.
So my big question to my fellow "inmates" is: what exactly is going on here? How did they snatch me up and hold a trial that I don't even remember? I doubt they really care about justice, but why lie about me getting a trial?
[A sigh. This is really getting him nowhere.]
The point is that I'd appreciate information besides the info in the pamphlet. Thanks.

29 February 2012 at 05:52 pm
[Late afternoon in Sector 3, a slightly-built robot, different from the many that wander the facility, has gathered with a few of the inmates in front of the movie theater.]
[They're planning a party, or so they say.]
[...Within an hour they break away and head to an unremarkable, sealed building towards the dome wall of Sector 3. And then Sentience's party disappears inside it and they are not seen or heard from again for the rest of the day.]
((OOC: The first event mingle. Do not respond to the post itself! Sentience will make several comments over the next few hours. Each comment is a separate prompt, describing the action that's just happened and which is happening. Comment to a "prompt" comment to set your character in the mingle, so that other characters can tag you there! If you want to tag Sentience, Sentience will be making comments just like every other character so that you can interact with it directly.))

[ Today, Guilford is taking a break from his work, and to further take his mind off of the events of the day-before-last. He can be found:
1) In the morning at Dani's, the coffee shop, enjoying a cup of black tea and some biscuits. The booth is empty, and there is only one cup, but surely he can't be expected to read and enjoy breakfast in peace when the establishment is so popular amongst the other inmates, now can he?
2) Spending mid-day in the library, perusing the shelves while he hopes something catches his eye. Fiction is the order of the day, and perhaps he should expand his reading now that he has the opportunity to peruse selections from multiple worlds so easily.
3) Finishing off the evening with a quiet drink at the tavern. The Devil's Compass might have had a number of occupants earlier in the day thanks to the other man's call, but it doesn't seem like a lot of individuals stuck around. Which suits Guilford just fine as he sits at a table, nursing some bourbon on the rocks. In an uncharacteristic sight, his glasses are off and resting on the table, and even his hair has been let down. His expression is far from being relaxed. ]

[Stitch has borrowed one of the shelter rooms to stay in over the last few days. Now he turns his communicator on to show it off. At first all you'll see is the ceiling, then a big alien eye before Stitch grins and tilts the communicator to show off one of the walls]
[Said wall has a bunch of photos tacked to it, mostly of different areas in the dome. There's also a sketch of him carefully pinned up that was given to him by Reki a few days ago]
Lilo had photo wall at home. So Stitch make photo wall here! [It kind of reminds him of home, but not as full] Stitch needs to take photos of people. [He sets the communicator down and crawls up onto said wall, going around the photos] Take lots of photos!
[He has the plans.
Later on he can be found all around the dome with his newly acquired camera, taking pictures of everything and everyone who comes across his path. Smile for the camera?]

[Fuschia pink taffeta in yo' face, Marina. The glittery ruffles clear away almost immediately and surprise, Yomi isn't actually wearing it! No, she's in a very reasonable grey sweatsuit and it only took three days of wearing her school uniform.
But she is in the clothing store and a little bewildered by what she's found.
Is there any real reason to wear this or is Acumen just covering all the fantasy bases? [With an amused quirk of the lips, she sets it back on the rack.
] I'm having a bit of trouble deciding if this is the worst prison ever or the best one.
