[ Sewing Club Meeting | Education Center | OPEN MINGLE ]
27 March 2012 at 09:13 pm
[ One of the Sewing Rooms in the Education Center is abuzz with voices, the click of scissors snipping or needles crossing, along with the occasional whirr of sewing machines. Threads, colorful fabric are present, along with works-in-progress and projects still to be traced from patterns.
Curious? Need help in getting a dress together? Need tips on how to get that fluffy tail on that bunny plushie? Puzzled over how to do a back-stitch? Members and non-members, old inmates and new are welcome to the Sewing Club Meeting! ]
(( ooc: this is a MINGLE post so tag in and tag around! Please note that even if there haven't been ic meetings in a while, the Sewing Club has been consistent in their meetings! ))

There are so many kinds of tea here. [A tiny, somewhat tentative voice wonders aloud as the communicator does indeed fixate on the general store’s rather large tea selection, a bit later in the morning. She had just wanted to stock up for her usual shut-in tendencies and those nights when she can’t sleep very well, but rows upon rows of tea brands and flavours she had never heard of had surprised her a bit.]
Oolong, ginseng, vanilla earl grey, orange pekoe, Satsuma, maple, snow dragon, star of china, spearmint, yerba mate –
[She does stop at that last, perhaps a bit self-consciously. She hadn’t intended to list out so many, but she been caught up in it and hadn’t realised, either. Her tone takes on a good-natured bit of self-consciousness as she steps away from the selection – not far, but pointedly back.]
How is anyone supposed to choose?

Good morning. [A distinguished looking gentleman has learned how to turn on his communicator, and he is looking quite comfortable, considering the fact that he’s just learned he has been locked up for life in a prison he’s never heard of.]
I do hate to be a bother to my new warden, guards, and fellow inmates, but as you might fathom, I have some questions. Might you indulge a poor old man with a few answers? [Have his best, winning smile, Marina!]

[deep breaths Sakura. take deeeeep breaths. You can do this.]
Hello! How is everyone today? Um, I guess I just wanted to say - yesterday was really weird wasn't it? [and just the memory makes her cheeks redder. brb, practically sinking] I don't think I've seen those robots before and I'm sorry for everyone that I got stuck with. I wish it didn't happen - not that it was bad! [flailing] It's okay if it's just mistletoe right? It's not like - it's not like a real kiss... B-but still I'm really, really sorry!
[hastily bowing to the screen and CUTTING THE CONNECTION]
[...and suddenly it flickers back on] Um, and if my brother ever shows up here again... please don't tell him about this. He'll get really mad. O-okay, I think that's it. Goodbye! And I'm sorry again! It wasn't fair and - [and the communicator abruptly clicks off BYE EVERYONE]

[In the morning, residents of Marina will find Ukitake deep in meditation beside the koi pond. He has a slender katana resting across his lap, and his hands are draped lightly over his knees. Sitting perfectly still, he seems almost a statue, save for the faint stirring of his long white hair in concert with the movements of the air.
Later, he can be seen on the network, wearing a contented smile, the same katana sheathed at his side.]
It is always good to see an old friend after a separation. [He leaves unspoken that, for the first time since he arrived in Marina, a part of his soul feels whole again, the shard that was Sogyo no Kotowari no longer missing since the sword was returned to him.]
If there were one thing or person you could ask to be brought to this place, what would you choose?
22 February 2012 at 05:41 pm
[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.

[Hisoka is not happy in the slightest.
He's stuck in a dress, because Break - HE KNOWS IT WAS YOU - stole all of his clothing somehow and replaced everything with female clothing. Of course there was nothing modest or plain, not even a yukata which he would have been used to from when he was still alive, so he was forced to put on something like this.
You'd think he would stay indoors to save himself from the embarrassment, but Hisoka is determined to find Break and
kill him tell him off before demanding to have his clothing back. Besides, that's where invisibilty comes in handy, right?
He'll be out and about, invisible for the most part, but hey, he can't stay like that forever since it uses energy (and people with strong spiritual powers or senses will see him even when he's using this ability) so outside the library and around the shelter he'll be visible, and wandering around the rest of the dome as well.
So, naturally people and bots will be where he is to take advatage of this yes/yes?
BREAK, YOU ARE SO DEAD WHEN HE FINDS YOU]

[ Miwako is up bright and early today~! As the video feed clicks on, you can see her sitting in a rather loud and chaotic bedroom - this, sir, is her new apartment, and she's here to tell you all about it. ]
Good morning~! Miwako has been super busy-busy lately. I moved into a new apartment in Sector 4~! It's my first time living on my own, and I'm really excited. And look-[ The video shifts to the walls, past a Sex Pistols poster, and to a collection of photographs pinned to the wall. There are photos of Ribbons Almark, Setsuna and his robot statue made of dominoes, photos of Miwako and Nill, photos of Miwako's white kitten Dorian, of koi fish in the pond, and photos of Miwako and Sanji - including an awkward and unflattering picture of the cook, which you're welcome to laugh at. Sorry, Sanji. ]
I got all my photos from the dinner party printed out~ A few days ago, The King and I [ she still doesn't know Tamaki's name... ]
were talking about having a photo shoot with cool-looking people - people with killer style. Would any of you guys be interested~? I'm also thinking of throwing a housewarming party soon, too. I'll send out invitations~
If any of you want to drop by sometime, just let me know! Miwako is all moved in and ready to party! [ And with that, she gives a big grin and a peace sign, and shuts off the feed. To those who know her well, this cheerfulness might have seemed kind of... forced; but to others, this is just an especially enthusiastic girl, it seems.]action;[ While out and about, Miwako can be found one of two ways today: with a huge (and heavy!) sewing machine box, and without. Acu has delivered her sewing machine, and she's out to retrieve it! Find her taking the scenic route through the park, or elsewhere in the Dome on her way to the kiosk! She's been kind of blue and keeping to herself lately, so she'll be happy to see anyone she knows - or doesn't know! Pucker up, Miwako~ ]

[Sougo is giving his best smile.]
Good morning, inmates! I have a very important question for all the ladies, and you have to be honest.
If you had to pick between me
, who would you choose? Doesn't have to be anything specific. A friend, a date, someone you'd want to protect you. Whatever.
We want to know.[ooc: Links are only there for your reference, haha!!]

[Lovely day for being in any open, common area of the dome, isn't it? Of course there is a chance of kissing bot, but it's always something in the underwater prison.](OOC: Check out the OOC post for details. Pucker up! Edit: Links for those with loading problems!)

[Anew's in a corner of the library with a bunch of books spread out in front of her. Totally normal, right? Except that she's practically hyperventilating.]
[If you get a peek at what she's reading, you might see a few strange images that have sort of a theme. Her eyes are as wide as they can possibly be as she reads what is apparently a book about someone named May Cutler.]
Oh my goodness -- this is impossible![Video | Filtered from the Dylandys][Sorry Dylandy brothers but she's not trying to upset Lyle!
And they can [action] if you want to!]
I -- I think I need some help. I didn't know being a wife was so... [she presses a hand to her mouth as if she's feeling ill, which given her expression is entirely plausible.]
I don't even own any pearls!
06 February 2012 at 09:20 pm
[ Have a peculiar looking boy with an extremely long nose looking very, very concerned into the video feed... This does not bode well. ]
This is a joke, right? Prison? What mistakes is this thing talking about? And I've never heard of any "Eloquis Ocean." We're still on the Grand Line, right? Right?
Oi, Luffy! Luuuuffy! Chopper! Zoro! Sanji? Robin? Nami? They didn't get you guys, did they? I can't be here alone...
I-I mean! Not that this is anything that The Great Captain Usopp couldn't handle! I've busted out of twenty prisons just like these - even further under the sea! And I swam back to the surface, with my hands tied! I'd just rather not have to do it again - it's a waste of my time, you know!
Oh, god, am I really the only one here? Guys? I'm getting a bout of my I-Don't-Want-To-Be-In-Prison disease...

[Leaning forward, hands on hips, Yuuki's eyes narrow as she stares, unimpressed, at one of the horses within the new stables. It's a tall, beautiful, sleek white mare. Thus far it's been the star of the day. It's beautiful, there isn't any denying that. And even if she doesn't know much beyond the basics when it comes to horses, it's clear this one is fit and in perfect shape.
Even still, she appears doubtful as she stares long and hard at the creature.]
You're not fooling anyone, you know.
[Which isn't fair. Not entirely. Even she's aware of that somewhere inside her. She speaks, as though it's perfectly normal and has a shared past with the creature before her.]
You can pretend to be innocent all you like, but I know what you innocent, pretty white horses are really like.
[ The only one she's truly familiar with is the most temperamental, bad-natured, insufferable horse imaginable. She won't forget the day it wounded her pride, and then kicked her.
... Right in the bottom. >///< ]
I'll take my chances on that black stallion across from you any day.

[ Claire is surrounded by happiness. And really what that means is a lot of baking supplies. She's very excited. ]
Sasha! Orihime! Okay, I know we never really agreed on anything totally final - but look! [ She pans around, showing everything the AI's gotten for them. ]
Everything we need to start a bakery business! Seriously, this is the most exciting thing that's happened since I got here!
[ Oh and maybe she should talk to everyone else. ]
Keep your eyes peeled, soon there'll be enough cupcakes to keep everybody in the whole dome happy!

[Oblivious to the bomb crisis because it hasn't even happened yet, thanks to a distinct lack of respect for chronology, PM is cheerfully going about her route while there is still some light out. Of note is a pure black sword strapped to her side with a makeshift sheath, but other than that one rather noteworthy change, she goes about her day trying to track down the various school faculty.][Click here for pen pal signups.

[the communicator turns on with a clatter as it tumbles across the floor of Orihime's house and comes to a stop, facing her. Orihime is sprawled on the floor, having tripped over apparently nothing at all. she's still in her pajamas even though it's afternoon; she's felt sick and strange and dizzy all day, and so she stayed in bed. but now that she's finally gotten up...]
[Orihime clutches at her face as she starts to straighten. anyone who knows her may recognize that her hair is much longer, and thicker, and wavy. she is, in fact -- two years older than she was before]
[she just holds her head for a beat longer before reaching for the communicator again. when she notices it's on, she smiles sheepishly, picking it up]
Um -- good afternoon, everyone... Can I ask someone to get me something from the clothing store?
her hair isn't all that's grown! CANON UPDATE'D]

[Hi, Marina! Have an *extra* smiley pink haired girl!]
Good morning, everyone. Does anyone here have the skills to help create a wedding dress?
[Context? NOPE. Have fun~
and threadjack Neil if he shows up!]

- Miwako: a letter from Sanji.
- Flynn Scifo: a package from Xerxes Break.
- Tamaki Suou: a package from Orihime Inoue.
NEW PENPAL MATCHUPS
- MOMO & Tsuna
- Shinwoo & Sakura
[With snow on the ground, you would think that the route would be a little more difficult. But no, a little bit of snow will not stop the mail! Or even slow it down, really. Not even if PM stops to gently shuffle fresh snow around, or even to form a snowball and casually toss it up into the air.]
[Just ignore the time where it splats on her head instead of being caught or falling harmlessly to the ground.][Click here for pen pal signups. Mail submissions for Day 150 go here!]
12 January 2012 at 09:33 pm
Good afternoon, Marina! It's been a few days since I've spoken to you all like this, hasn't it? I think the last time was on Halloween when the candy turned me into a diamond! [Which he still kind of thinks was a tiny bit awesome.]
It seems that Haruhi and Ranka both went home already. It's very lucky that they got to go home together so that they don't have to be alone. I'm sure that they're a lot happier being at home than they would have been here so I'm not really upset, but I wish they would have stayed for a little longer. Haruhi taught me how to make sugar cookies and I've been practicing a lot since then so that I could impress her with my skills! It would have also been nice to talk to Ranka since we got off on the wrong foot when he first got here. [Smiling through all of this, as usual, despite the fact that he is upset by their disappearance. There's no reason to make that known to everyone.]
Since they aren't here I have a lot of extra cookies so if anyone wants to try them you can come over! I don't think I have enough for everyone, but I wouldn't mind making more if I have to! It's no wonder commoners like cooking so much, it's a lot of fun! Maybe after this I can find even more recipes and try to make even more things!
Everyone who arrived yesterday are especially invited! I know that suddenly finding yourself here can be very stressful and cookies are always good for cheering people up so this might be very nice! [And suddenly his smile goes away and is replaced with a thoughtful look.] Ah, but there are cookies in the welcome basket aren't there? I guess this would be a lot of cookies to add to those... [But his smile is back right after that.]
[And one last thing before he ends the feed.] Everyone who comes over can meet my parrot, too! He's very loud and likes to sing, but he's also very friendly and I think a lot of people will like him!
[MINGLE / Open to ALL] Snowball Fight in Sector 4!
11 January 2012 at 07:35 pm
[ Wandering around the snowy park? There are two things to look out for: (1) don't trip over the bright orange ropes that close off a large open area, (2) take cover and watch for a stray snowball, and (3) ... you know, you might want to join in for this
is a Snowball Fight
Only guidelines: no weapons, no head shots, no stuffing snow down someone's mouth, collar or anywhere else uncomfortable. Play to your heart's content! Spoiler: there's no winner.
Warm drinks and snacks are served in a nearby tent (ah, thank goodness for space heaters!), while towels and blankets are also available. You might want to take advantage of the snow as well -- make snowmen, snow angels, your own sculpture as you wind down~ ]( --- OOC Guidelines; PLEASE READ --- )
