[She's trying to make a call or so she's telling herself as she fiddles around with her communicator. But Akane is sluggish. Her eyes are barely open, her forehead is covered with sweat, and her dark bangs stick to her skin as she blinks sleepily into the screen. Her cheeks are flushed with a deep red and her head keeps falling forward as if she's nodding off.]
…dojo... wassss ssssposed ta be aaat the...
[And she's out... again. This is the third time she's tried to get up, but this time she's only managed to fall out of her bed. As she hits the floor, the video cuts off.]
[ooc: Another case of the sleeping sickness. I'm sure you're all tired of seeing this. SORRY! >_<;;]

[Akane is sitting outside the dojo, leaning her back against the wall near the entrance. Her eyes are nearly closed, as if she is in a daze. The color around her eyes is dark and her pigment is spotted with blotchy patches, as if she's been rubbing her face a lot. She looks tired and the whites of her eyes are red. In her hand, she has a water bottle that she occasionally raises to her lips, but otherwise Akane is pretty lifeless.
She sighs, her lips slowly mumbling a name before she closes her eyes tightly. She doesn't want to cry again. She can't cry. It won't change anything and it won't bring him back. But knowing that will hardly take away the guilt.]
[ooc: Tatewaki Kunou was from her world, so she's a little out of it since hearing about his death. Anyone is welcome to pop in and talk to her, but she might be a little despondent. Even so, she could use some cheering up.]

[Ranma's... sort of pacing back and forth in the hallway in front of Akane's room, all but psyching himself out for... what's supposed to happen. He takes lots of deep breaths, muttering to himself.]
Okay. This ain't a big deal, Saotome. Just... do it. Okay.
[He clears his throat, then knocks on the door and speaks up.] O-Oi, Akane! You ready?
[action] Event: Valentine's Auction
19 February 2010 at 03:05 pm
[A podium and stage, decorated with pink and red, has been set up outside the shelter. Here's where the action happens...!]
[Everyone who wants to RP out their auction should make a comment here, describing what they're wearing and how they're feeling/acting in the comment. Don't say anything. You may optionally add context relative to the timing of the bidding, like mention that he's impatient for character X to go up, or is weirded out because character Y just bought someone else and she was supposed to buy him, or is anxious because she's the first one up there, etc.
[Then Minako responds with patter commentary, attempting to sell your character based on what she knows/has been told. She will put [Bidding] in the subject line. Respond to Minako's comments to bid. Just like in a real auction, the bid that is the highest or the fastest will be the one accepted!
[Please go up in increments of no more than 300 sentis at a time, and remember that 1500 sentis is a reasonable price for a date. Indicate in bold in brackets if you have OOC plans, like, "[He was confident he would win]" or "[She was starting to worry she didn't have enough cash]" or "[The thought of losing didn't even cross his mind]". It is common courtesy not to interfere with established plans; if you want to do something else, talk to the mun whose intentions interfere with yours.
[But try not to choreograph things too extensively. You have the right to decide what you want to happen to your character, but it's fun to let these things be spontaneous, and you don't have the right to tell other people their characters aren't allowed to do something IC just because it interferes with your extensively scripted plans.
[Minako will declare the winner of each auction, largely at her discretion, and then the bidding will be over.
[People may also start their own threads off the original comment with the biddee with subject lines like [Before the Bidding] or [After the Bidding] to interact with the person up for auction. Try not to do post-bidding threads until after the bidding is concluded -- for obvious reasons!]

[Kunou finds himself in the park, doing something very un-Kunou-like. Namely, playing with a machine. A robot cat to be exact, courtesy of Anissina. He is holding a remote and maneuvering the little kitty all around, making it pace, nuzzle, and mew seemingly at random. But he's improving! At least it generally does what he commands! Clearly there were some manufacturing problems.]
[Which means! Cue
evil honorable samurai grin, the time has come!]
SAOTOME! Come forth, if thy cowardice can bear it, and face thy defeat!
19 January 2010 at 12:56 pm
[All this talk about cat ears, and walking around and seeing people with cat ears... has Ranma freaking out a little. On the inside, anyway. He's not sure if people getting cat ears is a sign that they're all going to turn full cat, but just the possibility of it is really making him nervous. Nevermind the fact that Komui basically stated what they're for and how they got there. When you're phobic, well...]
[Ranma can be found slinking around the premises, trying his hardest to avoid bumping into too many people who have cat ears.]
Don't grow tails don't grow tails don't grow tails no no no don't meow at me don't meow please don't...
[voice | action] KISSING!
22 December 2009 at 06:27 pm
AH HA! [You might hear subtle hints of things exploding in the background—small things! It's really more like popping. Nothing at all to concern yourself with!]
Now that the prototype is done, I'd like to—what was that phrasing again? Ah yes!
—wish you all a Merry Christmas. My gifts for everyone should be making their way around.((OOC: See this post for details on the randomized kissing couples and how Mistletoe-kun operates. Feel free to comment here directly to Anissina or to play out your random kissing—just make it clear in the subject please!))

[She's not scared. Not scared. Not scared. *gulp* Not... s-scared.]
[That shadow on the wall looks like a g-g-ghoooost!
...and this will be Akane running through the darkness, whimpers and cries falling from her mouth as she prays that whatever monster she's concocted in her imagination isn't right behind her.
Hopefully she doesn't run into anyone (literally) because she cannot see where she's going.]

[Akane is standing in the dojo, staring down at three cinder blocks, which have been raised off the ground slightly so that when she hits them, they will receive a clean break. She takes a few slow breaths and then inhales deeply. Her speed is quick as she lowers her fist to the center of the top most block.]
[ All three break and she takes another deep breath, looking satisfied with herself. Brushing her bangs from her forehead, she stretches her arms above her head. A moment later, she resumes her training by throwing several kicks into the air.]
[ooc: I realize that there probably aren't that many characters who practice martial arts, but if you're walking by the dojo, you'll probably hear her. And since there's a deranged vampire on the loose, I can't imagine that she'd be doing anything else.]
[Action | Open, why not!]
11 November 2009 at 07:33 pm
[So many interesting new inmates, so few opportunities to catch them in a proper mood. The grief and shock from the vampire attack was all too quickly replaced by a communal sense of mutual concern that was just sickening. Something needed to be done.]
[Xellos decides to spend his time hanging around the kitchen, waiting for a tasty morsel that couldn't be found in the pantry. He's been lurking enough to know quite a bit about many of the inmates and is well prepared to do what he does best -- use their own feelings against them.]
[Oh, this would be fun.]
((OOC: Xellos is ready and willing to torment any and all characters! If you want him to have knowledge of your character to use against them other than what was shared over the public airwaves, please indicate such or IM me. Also, it would help greatly if you would include [thinking] tags to indicate what your character is feeling if it's not obvious, since Xellos will be able to tell.))

[There is a moment of eerie silence, ominous perhaps, indicative of something... unpleasant about to assail the ears of all Marina residents. And then, alas, it is upon you:]
PIGTAILED GIRL, O JOY OF MY HEART! It hath been too long since last I was graced with the glory of thine presence, and thus, I am left with no choice but to call upon thee! For surely, as a gentlemen, I am duty-bound to act and preserve thy honor at all costs![A video feed clicks on, the feed showing Kunou's hand holding a set of black underwear... and perhaps, if you look closely, he might be rubbing the fabric between his fingers.]
I implore you, my Pigtailed Goddess! Come at once to my location, and I should be only too glad to return thine elegant underthings. But fear not, Pigtailed girl, for I have kept them well! Ah, such is the duty of true love!

[Akane is still trying to get acquainted with this... 'communicator' device. She's standing outside of a bathroom, having just cleaned it, with a bucket and water pail (
Yes -- Fresh cold water -- come and get it, Ranma XD) ready for her next bathroom. Wiping her brow, she sets down the bucket and jiggles the chain around her leg a bit. It's probably obvious to anyone who sees her that she is concerned.]
U-Um... I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove this ball and chain thing that's attached to my leg. I've seen a few people around here without it. What exactly does it mean?
[Honestly -- it's only good for beating Ranma over the head with. :|]
25 September 2009 at 10:48 am
[Ranma is currently in the dojo, working through some basic martial arts kata to warm himself up. He's actually in girl-mode, since he's waiting on a woman called Shadowcat to show up, and it just wouldn't be fair to fight her one on one as a man. She's been itching to have a good spar; Kunou's just too easy to beat, and this girl sounded confident enough to at least make it interesting.]
I should probably make this quick, though... Man, I hate fightin' girls...

[Having at long last thrown off the bonds of thralldom (or at the very least serfdom, being equally atrocious a fate!) Kunou makes his path to the dojo, again at long last! And lo! The heavens smile upon him!]
Seek and ye shall find! [Holding up a bokken!] Behold, all who dare to look upon its brilliance, the glory of my new weapon! I shall bequeath it the most noble of purposes: to protect she which shames the sunrise with her splendor, my adoring beauty, the Pigtailed Girl! Quake in thy boots, all ye who seek to deter me from my righteous path of love!
[And now! To find someone to smite.]

[Once the ball and chain were off and her powers were restored, Kitty spent the better part of her day intangible. It was freeing. At least as freeing as possible in a prison. She was getting a little tired of the solitary lifestyle though. And it might be worthwhile to know a little about the others. Who knows, they could be useful.]
Seems like if we are all going to live together, we should get to know each other, hmm?
So, roll call.
Who is here? What's your deal? Where are you from? What do you do? What's a food that starts with the first letter of your name? You know, standard fare.

[Let it be said, that Sora has never been much of a student. His favorite parts of school are (when he used to go) recess, lunch, and PE. So all the time at the education center are mostly devoted to messing around, and not opening the various books there. He's thinking about various things that have been going on, and what people have said, and wearing these chains, sooooo........]
Do you think I should wear my hair flat? [It wasn't TOO hard, after Riku got the conditioner into his hair.]
12 September 2009 at 09:33 pm
[During the recreation period between dinner and lights out, Fletcher stands along one wall of the common room, holding in his hands one card that was made earlier today. He wants to ask people if they'd like to sign it, but he's also worried that it might make people angry...
But if he asks first over the headsets, he can probably get a good idea of who's okay with it. Right? So, making sure he's as far away from the main action as he can be, he asks:]
Um... I was wondering... S-some of us got together and, um...
[The transmission cuts off, and resumes about a minute later.]
Is there anyone who isn't mad at Sentience right now?

[Kunou's travels have landed him in the park. No matter that he was seeking the training dojo, as advised by Emperor Fou-Lu, because a noble samurai must be aware of his surroundings, irrelevant to the destination.]
[Suddenly, his musings lead to a deduction! And he speaks, as is customary, aloud, thus notifying the entire facility of the results of his genius!]
...Having spent long hours in a quest to seek out a dojo in which I might welcome a solace from the trial that this experience hath inflected upon this great warrior, it occurs to me. How am I to train when I lack my trusty bokken? For it has been stolen, spirited away by the unseen entity who holds me in thrall! It is enough even to make my lion's heart weep, for a Master without his weapon is lost, adrift in the desolate wasteland without so much as a hope of rescue!
But I shall endure! Never fear my loves, for it taketh an act equal to the power of the gods themselves to deter the will of Tatewaki Kunou!
((OOC: yeah, he's talking to himself. Anyone who wants to be pontificated to death, have at!))
01 September 2009 at 01:03 pm
[He hates the communicator, really. He just doesn't like technology all that much, and now that he's trapped here BY technology, he is even more cranky about it. He has some things to say, though, and thus begrudgingly puts the thing on.]
I have a few questions.
Does everyone here really not know what a nobody is? [Was just hearing a lot of that in Larxene's conversations. The last thing he wants is for people to misunderstand her.]
What happened to the place last night?
Axel, are you still alive or what?
Xion.... [There is a pause. Ehhhhh....maybe not.] Never mind.
Who knows where I can find Joshua? [In order to strangle him. Just a little.]
In case anyone was being extra anal, I'm not really the one that pissed the computer off.
[Lastly, something that Suzaku said made him curious. Stripped of their abilities?] Can anyone else here fight at all?
27 August 2009 at 03:14 pm
[a brash sounding female voice clicks on, clearly pretty pissed off about something] --This has gotta be the old man’s fault. Who else would think it’s funny to toss me into a weird place like this? Where the hell’d he get such a dumb idea from in the first place?! Another Chinese guidebook he picked up at the grocery store?! That old man ain’t got a nick of common sense in his damned skull… And splashin’ me with water first thing, too… Talk about a low blow, geez…
OKAY, POP. JOKE’S OVER, YOU’VE HAD YOUR FUN, RIGHT? LEMME OUTTA HERE ALREADY! SINCE WHEN DO PRISONS TEACH YA MARTIAL ARTS TECHNIQUES, ANYWAY?! CAN WE JUST MOVE ON NOW? WE’RE GONNA MISS KASUMI’S DINNER!!
