[ action / open ] English Class
01 September 2010 at 10:44 am
[ Lavi's sitting out by the tree again, still covered in a smattering of bandages and flipping through Leviathan and making notes and doodles on some scrap paper, waiting for class to start. He's also mentally reviewing what they covered on days 72 and 74 -- the alphabet (capital and lowercase), numbers 1-10, pronunciation, and then skipped to verbal introductions, names, places, favorite things and "what is this?"/"what is this in English?" -- he hopes skipping four days hasn't completely wrecked things. It's only been four days.

Maybe today they'd cover food. Or maybe homonyms, homographs and homophones. That could be fun. ]

((ooc: Students welcome to threadjack any "During Class" thread. :D

First class was on day 72, and because of the GIR event, there wasn't class on day 73, but there was one on day 74. :3 English classes will run on days ending in 4s and 8s, around 11:00am. Feel free to have your kids have forgotten everything, given the excitement. Or remember everything! He kept it pretty basic, if somewhat random. It has not yet occurred to him to come up with lesson plans. XD;;;))

[This could be considered something of an odd sight - Rei is at the basketball courts, dressed in a cream-coloured track suit with powder-blue stripes down the arms and legs, but the ball she's picked up sits a few feet away, untouched. Instead she's got a book in her hands, and she's pacing the length of the court erratically, as though occasionally inspired by something she has read in her book.

At closer glance, this actually makes sense; she's got a basketball rulebook, and she's cramming for the game she and Kid have planned for some time in the next few days. She could have asked Kid to teach her, but she's got a natural aversion to looking foolish in front of anyone, so she's decided to do a bit of recon before she even calls him in. This 'dribbling' sounds complicated, but she's got good hand-eye, so she'll give it a try once she's got the rules down.

Now. What constitutes a three-pointer, rather than the usual two points? She crosses back to one of the hoops, looking up at it curiously.]

[The feed clicks on to show Charley looking as serious as ever.]

Good morning. For anyone who doesn't know I am Charley Chrishunds and I will be teaching the class on religion. I'm having a bit of a late start but the first class will be held tomorrow afternoon. I welcome anyone to come.

[He clears his throat.]

Now for the real point of this broadcast. I've been trying to figure out how to best go about teaching religion, but because there are so many different ones I'm asking anyone who may be interested what religion they would like to learn more about. Whether it be one from your world, or one you heard about from someone else. Whatever the case I would appreciate the input. Thank you for your time.

[The feed clicks off.]

[ Jeanne opens up with a big pout. ] Ladies, I have some sad news. It looks like Acumen thinks that having a dedicated spa facility is "redundant". [ Further dejected, now. ] I'm sorry, I tried my best.

[ Brightening up a bit. ] But! I think the event was a huge success, and I think it's a great relaxing and bonding experience. You can count on there being more nights like that! Please let me know if there's anything you want special for next time. Maybe we could have a theme, or even some music? Just let me know!

[ Open ]
[ Now she's waving to the camera. She looks a tad more nervous, but that's just because this is serious business... sort of. ]

Good morning, everyone! I hope you're all having a good day so far.

I have a question... I know the school has some language courses -- and I think those are a neat idea, don't get me wrong -- but does anyone else think a course on sign language would be kind of neat? [ Holding up some video discs. ] I found a bunch of these in the education center, and I was thinking it might be good to have some basic knowledge of that sort so that those of us who don't speak different languages can still kind of understand one another. You know, in case we lose or break our headsets, or something.

What do you all think?

[ Close to sunset, Touma was back on the streets, wandering. It's not to clear his head, but rather to fill it. Anything except the inevitable destructive end of this place, or the emptiness left behind in the places that once were filled with... Well, if he knew what was in the burned out recesses of his mind, he wouldn't be moving around so aimlessly.

There was a small limp in his step, but it was still easier to walk than before. Has he always healed this fast? That frog-faced doctor might have known, but even facts about what his own body and his own mind were capable of were now lost to Touma.

He wanted to ask Acumen a question, but he couldn't come to terms with the possibility that he didn't want the answer.

Before it gets too dark, he should really get back into the Shelter. What if those things came back?

He stopped in front of the doors to the movie theater, its bright lights and colorful posters catching his eye. Maybe Asuka was right. Maybe he just needs to find something to do. ]

(( OOC: changed from the arcade to the theater, because it hardly gets used. <3 ))

[It's well into the evening and Kaoru is still out. More like he's still at the library. Hearing Hikaru earlier makes him thing that maybe there's been a step backwards in his brother's progression. It's really hard to judge some of this simply because of one factor they had at home and one that's not here. Their argument back home never really had been settled and it's impossible for it to be fully resolved until that little factor appeared here, which is not really something Kaoru wants. Yet at the same time he does because really... He really has the nastier personality of the two of them. It would make things easier...

And he then wouldn't have to be sitting here, a book open at one of the tables. Kaoru had been reading it, really. But he soon lost interest in it halfway through and instead had been doodling/plotting in a notebook. His expression is clearly distracted and he's tapping the pencil on the notebook. Tap tap tap tap.

He just doesn't know anymore what he can do to really help Hikaru. It had been pretty clear before but now it just seems he's run out of routes to take...

A sigh and he pushes the thing from him, swinging an arm around the back of the chair and leaning.]

What now...

[When the broadcast began, Ashton took a deep breath. He wasn't quite sure how to begin, even though he's had all day to think about it.]

Um, hello everyone. I would have made this invitation more private, but... I'm not even sure who all knew them, or who might care enough to come, so...

In two days, I'll be holding a-- [What was the better word, again? Oh yeah.] Wake, for Gyoro and Ururun.

They deserve to be put to rest, properly. [Something in his voice tightens, but he doesn't break.] It's the least I can do for them.

Wow... Just wow. That's all I can really say about that. Don't think I could even get names down if I tried... Wonder if those guys will work things about better than some of us still here.

[Probably not but hear the sound of clapping.]

Okay, I say no more talking about it. Good or bad, can't change it now. Gotta keep just moving forward, am I right?

So I wanna hear everyone give one reason to be happy today, okay?

You know, if someone told me that I'd end up in a underwater prison controlled by a dumb robot with a bunch of weird freaks and stupid stuff happening -- I'd call them crazy.

And just look where I am now. I wonder how long it'll take before they have to wrap me up in a straitjacket.

[Private To Naoya]

I need to talk to you.

[Tieria had left the apartment early. 874 was gone, as were Mileina and Allelujah... again for the latter, though he was relieved that Revive and Alejandro hadn't been able to remain. That would have made for some more awkward moments. Anew had a rough time, he was sure.

And Neil's comment... That had hurt. Had he done something wrong to get Neil angry at him? He thought things were different. They had just talked that night after the class and...

He sat down on a bench in the butterfly pavilion, just needing some time to think, to be alone. Setsuna's attentions, while not unappreciated, had been a bit awkward. And asking about Rei... It had left Tieria wondering. Anew had taken that step. Could he? He'd always thought he wasn't allowed, but he hadn't been allowed to let himself develop attachments to his teammates, either. One could see how well that had worked out.

So, maybe...

But, this place. He couldn't stay here indefinitely. And they'd just be opening themselves up for more hurt... wouldn't they?]

[Cloth shopping bag in hand, Rei is on her way to the convenience store before she visits the Butterfly Pavillion to think for awhile. First thing's first - she's planning on making Dotenabe tonight, so she'll need to restock her vegetable supply. If all goes well, she might even invite Kid for dinner. She's no great hand at cooking yet, but she's determined, which has served her well in the past.

There's a lot on her mind - Kid, Shinji, all the adventures of yesterday - so she seems a little distracted as she picks up packages of tofu looking for the right firmness. In fact, she may have been staring at the same package of tofu for several minutes now. Anyone wanna snap her out of it?]

((ooc: new post, made an oopsie with the last one.))

They're really gone huh.

Can't say I'm complaining too much. Tch. Fucking asshole.

[Faith is in yo shelter, checking out her wounds. Well, what's left of her wounds from yesterday. Thankfully she's healed a little bit so most of the real ugly stuff has faded to black bruises down her arms and some cuts. It's like the fight with Angelus never happened! Lie]
The 77th Day
23 August 2010 at 10:18 pm
Good morning inmates. It is the 77th day of the third generation.

All stabilizer errors have been corrected, and the individuals who arrived due to them are no longer present in the facility. However, a significant amount of damage was made to a part of the Sector 5 residential area yesterday, so inmates should refrain from approaching or interfering with the construction.

Princess Nunnally, if you could be in the hospital lobby for 9 A.M, please.

Onii-chan? Where are you?

[Kana turns back on the communicator after having set it aside for most of the evening. Jun has said he would be right back...but that was a long time ago. Had he disappeared? Had she dreamed meeting him and spending the day with him?

Someone had to know.]

Umm...I'm sorry. I know it's late, but...I don't know how to contact just one person. I'm looking for my Onii-chan. He went out and hasn't come back yet.

[There's nothing strange about this scene at all. It's just Rei and Death the Kid walking together through the park, talking in low voices and occasionally smiling at one another.

Okay, some people might find the smiling strange. But really, there's nothing at all unusual about this.

Until you look slightly lower, and you notice that not only are their bodies quite close together, but their hands are intertwined. Now you might be wondering exactly what's going on here. And you'd be right to wonder. Approach them? Question Rei about this odd new development?]

[The feed cuts on to Jeanne, who was packing a bag full of various beauty products from the convenience store.] Hello girls! What a hectic day! There were just a ton of people running around all over the dome.

I don't know about any of you, but I miss spas, and I'm sad we don't have anything like them. They're the ultimate way to wash away stress, and pretty yourself up, all at once! [Beaming.] I'll be setting up some supplies in the public bathhouse for myself and my friends, but if you're looking to relax and maybe gossip a little come over! I'll be all set by the time the sun goes away.

Even those who just want to hang out, or volunteer to help pamper others. That would be lovely, too. [♥]

Oh, but one important thing -- [With a wink.] Don't tell the boys~!

Girl's Night In! )

[Today has been pretty eventful, what with all the temporary new inmates arriving and voicing their confusion, but Kid has found himself wishing that it would just be over. Although he'd prefer if none of his friends were brought here, he's been tuning in every now and hoping he would recognize even one of the new voices.

[But just sitting at home is boring and unhealthy, and he needs something to do besides this. So, he does the first thing he can think of at the moment.]

I'm sorry if this is bad timing, but I was wondering what you would say to a meeting for your skateboarding today?
