[Sougo is busy ripping tiny pieces of meat and setting them down on the ground. The pieces make a trail leading to a raw fish underneath a trap with a box, stick, and string.
He then sits on the ground nearby to watch a cat start to take interest in his little set up.
Sougo has his communicator turned so that everyone watches this cat fall for his trap. Maybe.]

Hello? Helloooo~?[The video feed flickers to life and begins with a shot of two dainty little feet. The camera moves slowly higher up, deliberately so, past pale and long legs, the supple curve of her hips, until finally Catherine stops, zooming out to show her cleavage and plush baby pink lips to the screen.
She pouts as the camera shakes just a little bit, blurring the image. To any man in the dome, or even woman really, taken or not, everything about her should seem very irresistible whether she's your type or not.]
Vincent? It's Catherine~ Come on, this isn't the time to be playing hide-and-seek with me. Besides--[Suddenly her tongue snakes out and her voice lowers, the seductive tone increasing.]
I thought you'd already had enough fooling around

[On any other day, Aidan would be in full-on Welcome Wagon mode right about now. That's not the case today and his usual sunny demeanor is nowhere to be seen, replaced by something a lot more subdued. Upon closer inspection, one would notice that it's not just his mood that has taken a blow - his face and neck are bruised, his lip still healing from a recent split and bandages are peeking out of the sleeves of his hoodie, hands wrapped tightly in stark white.
The worst can't be seen, but he's not making much of an effort to hide what is visible. This is video. He's not hiding.]
So... 's that time again, huh? New people comin' in? Guess I should say welcome or somethin', tell you this ain't such a bad place. [Pause. He can't really get into it.]
I've been thinkin' about somethin'... you know how people say it's important to make a good first impression? I guess that's somethin' we do here too, huh... bunch o' strangers, shoved together in a fishbowl. Criminals
, if you believe it... an' still we make an effort to be all nice an' polite. An' sure, all of us ain't bad but... [Not finishing that sentence.]
What do you think, Marina? Can you trust first impressions as much here as you could at home?Locked to Saya
... Locked to Haine
Hey. We need t' talk.

[Hiling is resting up at the hospital today. Her surgery went well and she's already anxious to leave, but she'll be good and stay a while. She loves visitors.
The screen shows Hiling in her bed with bandages wrapped around her chest. She's looking a little less... flat today, and she's just so happy about it, she has to tell everyone.]
Sentience is the best! Guess what? I just got a boob job! See how nice? They're perfect. I can't wait to get these bandages off.
28 May 2012 at 10:41 pm
[Serious face, deadpan mannerisms, not wanting to talk about feelings or sob life stories. Okay good, everything really did seem back to normal.]
We've reached normality. Let's hope it stays this way.
Oi, Asshole, let's go for drinks. I could really use some.
So wait, does this mean optional clothing at the beach can't be a thing we have forever? Shit. Should've soaked it up while I had the chance.
[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]

I wish people were nicer.
It would be nice if people would understand why I was upset when I was rejected from the Defense Force. They said it was only for the time being, but it's the closest thing to police work in this place. I'm supposed to do police work. It was the path I chose, and my sister was always very encouraging and supportive of me, even when it meant leaving her behind by herself.
I have to do it for her. Everything that happened to her is because of me, and this is how I can make it up to her.
[He starts to speak softer and more quietly, starting to trail off.]
I guess I just thought you should know... Not that I think anyone is listening, because everyone hates me, but I don't have anyone to talk to, and people always say talking about things is a good thing to do. I think it's stupid, though, because it doesn't change anything, and it won't fix what I let happen to my sister...

Just look at you guys, all bright eyed bushy tailed. How are you, Marina?[ The brightest smiley face you've ever seen on a guy~ ]
I realized I missed newbie day and thought that there's something missing from the Welcome Baskets. [ With that, he holds up a flyer -- ]
You know how you're kinda given a heads up with the brochure that tells you about our Wardens who can play around the space-time continuum? Well some kind soul
thought that isn't enough so we have this helpful little pamphlet here: "Death Buddies and You"![ Then holds up both of his hands as if to stop protests. ]
Now now, we're not here to make fun of dead people, just to make sure that people know what they're facing here. I'm no specialist, but if you've got questions I'll do my best to answer. We're handing these out around Sector 0 near the Shelter so inmates old and new are welcome to 'em.[ Two girls, a brunette and a blonde wave from behind him. ]
Now, for the rules! Rule number one ... [ He then proceeds to read off the rules and after the last rule. ]
Not too complicated is it? Well, we're here the whole day so come on down~(( OOC: Gabriel will mostly be answering network posts, but he has minimally bent the reality around Sector 0 and thus have "Sugar" and "Spice" walk around handing flyers out. So if you tag action, one of the girls will come talk to you :3 ))

Good day, Marina. Rebecca and I have been working on a virtual reality simulator for some time now. Thanks to all our beta testers, the devices are now ready for use! We hope you'll enjoy them.
Each set has two helmets which can optionally connect to one another, so you may share a session with another inmate. Starting tomorrow, people will be able to sign them out
for private use. There are a few simple rules
we'd ask people to follow in order to sign them out, but we can explain those to interested parties rather than publicly.
We've set up the devices in one of the shelter's common rooms for the day if you'd like to test them out or learn how they work. Using them, you can create and interact with any environment you can imagine, including places you remember from home. In one of my tests I was able to visit a space vessel, including the zero-gravity aspect of the environment, for example.
If you're interested, please do stop by.((OOC, please read!: FAQ/IC rules are right here. If you have more questions please do ask! Please note the IC rule against violent simulations!
If your character wants a tutorial of the devices, we're happy to thread it out or you can see this example that Lacus ran through with Hikaru.
Feel free to make your own threads mingle-style, indicating [closed] if it's for a specific person. You can also have [open] threads but remember your character has to ICly approve another user to connect to their VR session; others can't just suddenly appear in session without your character giving the device permission. Today, the machines can only be used in the common room and for a limited time. For longer sessions please sign up ICly for a day to get a set for private use! If your character is signing out the helmets we will assume you've read the IC rules Lacus and Rebecca have set up, which are at the top of the FAQ post.))
[action] Early evening; OPEN TO ALL

[Zatanna showing up this morning had been a pleasant surprise for one homesick Dick Grayson.
Now that she's gotten settled in, vented some of her feelings, and had a nice long nap, he decided to show her around Marina. The sooner she got used to this weirdness, the better it will be for her in the long run.
So the two of them will be wandering from sector to sector. Which is a prime opportunity to bother them. Or tease them. Or check up on Zatanna. Or ask Robin exactly why he wears sunglasses at night. The possibilities are endless! These two are fans of shenanigans, so watch out!]
[ooc: You'll (obviously) get replies from both of us, unless you specify that you want one over the other!]
05 May 2012 at 06:54 pm
Michael, you still wanna fight me?
It's our night, man.
[Looks like he's thinking about something very serious.]
Shit, I forgot to look into getting cheerleaders. Oh well.

[The convergence of the week's events had her already contemplating this, but it was Neil's injuries the other day that had Lacus refusing to quit until it was done. The church would reopen tonight.]( Cut for length, feel free to skip down to the video )[Video: Open][At first, all the video shows are the stars, shining in the night sky. The camera turns to show the inside of the church from the entry -- it looks entirely different than before. Where there was once plain wood and candlelight there is now light and color everywhere. Not only the stained glass in the windows, but the walls painted in vivid, abstract murals, the altar and pews stained a rich cherry.]
[And on the wall where had once hung a crucifix, and a man from it, a vibrantly colored portrait, of sorts.]
It's finished. [Lacus finally appears on the feed, but not as you might expect. Her expression is stern and her eyes flat and grey, as though the light can't reach them.]
We mustn't allow acts of terror to weaken us. That is the truest war any of us will fight.[She blinks, once, her seriousness giving way.]
I hope... [Her eyelids flutter and her eyes return to normal, reflecting the light once more. But they close again, her balance faltering.]
[The feed cuts off as she hits the floor. If anyone tries to call for her, she doesn't respond.]
((OOC: Action is totally open to any and all! Network replies will be answered after an IC time delay. No need to read what's behind the cut to respond, and I'm sorry for the tl;dr... /)_(\ ))

[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!]
[video/action] I Never Game!
26 April 2012 at 03:09 pm
[ greetings, Marina. Hawke again. today she just tosses a wave at the camera. ]
Let it never be said I was good at planning... well, anything... but I came across something that sounded like a bit of harmless fun. Not that it has to stay that way. [ winks ]
It's a charming little drinking game called "I Never". And if at least half of us are passed out on the floor by the time the evening's over, I'll consider it a success. The tavern would have been my first choice, but as it met a rather sad end... shall we say around eight o'clock? In the club? ((OOC: Forward-dated action in the comments! Enjoy!))( Index )
21 April 2012 at 10:58 pm
It's quite depressing here now that someone burned down the bar. The only really good thing in the place and someone had to throw a fit and burn it down.
Also, is it just me or are a lot of people suddenly rather depressed here? So boring. People just need to get over it.
19 April 2012 at 09:33 pm
[Here is Sougo.
Watch as Sougo is slurping and stuffing his face with ramen. What a mess he's making!
And then he decides talking is a good idea.]
This is some shit. Finally got people from my world, but they're assholes. Why couldn't it be anyone good?
[Sluuuuurps more noodles.]
And then some asshole destroyed the one hangout that was actually decent.
Well whatever. Guess I shouldn't expect much from this shitty place anyway.
[Video | Action; Open] Late afternoon into evening
17 April 2012 at 11:27 pm
[The feed opens up and you can hear piano music, seems it's on voice for now but whoever is holding the device discreetly switches it to video. What you see before you, Marina, is a very familiar blue-skinned teen... playing the piano with some skill for a guy who's only been practicing for a few days. Heck, some of you from earth (or a version of) might recognize the song.
If you don't, then you might as he starts to sing.
((ooc: You most likely will get a response from both the boys if you post to the video, but feel free to address either! Otherwise you can tag in with Action and find the two milling about on their "date" out and about just about anywhere. You may even catch them being adorable and affectionate~ They will be visiting the Ramen Shop for a late lunch then the Education Center(obviously), the Movie Theater and the Club!))

I have heard that there are those who would call themselves demons living among us.
[Fenris' expression is one of casual disdain. It is clear that he does not think highly of you demon-types.]
Even those whom I once believed to be reasonable. Show yourself, should you have the courage.
[He doesn't have a weapon to beat you all down with, but he'd at least like to know who to keep an eye on. What makes him think people will be honest? Well.
Better to ask, right?]

[ the feed clicks on to catch Hei quickly smoothing his hair flat. He's look a touch different then usual today with his green parka mislaid and walking briskly through the streets with naught but jeans and a button down white shirt on. It's definitely colder then he would like for this kind of attire but that doesn't stop him from speaking as he navigates the sidewalk. ]
Roommates. How do you handle them without... getting in each others way constantly?
[ Yes, folks. He doesn't know how to handle living with someone when he's used to one room apartments and changing cities every few months. And having a mark stay with him a night or two is a completely different agenda then, well... cohabiting. Waylay him on the way from Sector 3 to the shelter if one must. Assuming, that is, you can catch him. ]
05 April 2012 at 08:07 pm
[Oh, hey, it's this guy. Remember this guy? First time he showed up over the network he said something about shoving his foot so far up people's asses that they choke on it, and from the looks of it that's still his general attitude towards everyone who might be watching. Except this is far more serious. This is a matter that takes it a step further, towards the "I will tear your face off and maybe bludgeon you with your own spine" territory. Serious shit.]
Whichever one of you morons decided to hide Nena--ha. Ha, ha, ha. Totally funny. Sure got me! But seriously. Screw you.
[The vitriol in his voice does a pretty good job of hiding the actual--dare he say?--heartbreak of thinking his sister might not be around here anymore. There are few people Michael really cares about, and none he cares about more than his little sis.
He shifts his weight from foot to foot and lets out an exasperated sigh.]
Now listen here, every last bastard who's in on this, you're gonna put her back where you found her and you're gonna do it quick. I'm not messing around here! And if any one of you messed up just one hair on her head I swear I'm gonna trash you just like I did Acumen's bots. Did you see those? Not pretty!
[His voice rises as he speaks until he's just yelling into the device, and he cuts the feed off promptly after.]
