[at the convenience store and clothing shop, picking up some foodstuffs and clothes for Nill and her. geez, she feels so...domestic.]

It's strange. [P A U S E, okay yeah she's going to say something else.] You'd be lucky to get a roof over your head back home, much less food, and yet... You can do that here - and you can eat as much as you want without having to worry about money or keeping a job.

I never thought a life in prison could be...comfortable. [which doesn't mean she likes it, technically but][eyes trail over a pack of unsweetened chocolate. that reminds her :x] I could do without the tricks people play here though.

[private to Nill]

[switches to video just for her] I'm in the store right now. Do you want me to bring anything specific home?

[ Yes, this guy's finally making a post after harassing you all. A very pretty woman appears on the screen, rather frantic-looking; but she's not quiet for long until- ]


Haruhi, Haruhi, are you here? Answer me if you are! I love you! I promise I didn't neglect you as a child - I hope you don't think that!

Missing person alert! I am looking for a girl named Haruhi Fujioka. She has short dark hair in the cutest pixie cut and big magic brown eyes and probably is dressed like a tomboy. She's about 5'2", Japanese, from Bunkyou-ku, Tokyo! She's fifteen years old and was born on February 4th; she's an Aquarius, her bloodtype is O, and her favorite foods are sushi and strawberries!

If you've seen her here, please let me know! My name is Ranka Fujioka and it is your civil duty to reconnect a child with her parent! Repent for your criminal ways and help me find my daughter!

[ He is about to turn off the communicator, when another idea strikes him... His tone is very ominous and much more- manly. ]

And in case there is some repulsive, over-grown cockroach here by the name of Tamaki Suou-- No doubt you're here for some sex crime, molesting poor innocent girls who don't know any better... If I find out you did anything to my daughter, you won't live to regret it.

[The first thing to be seen on the camera is a wall on which a small rainbow can be seen. Typically, this wouldn't be anything remarkable, but once the camera moves to show Tamaki it might become clear why he feels the need to show everyone - his skin is sparkling in quite an abnormal fashion. The typical reaction would probably be to panic, but Tamaki has decided to look on the bright side of the situation so he's showing off his new skin.]

Look, look everyone! Isn't it marvelous? While it seems that some of you have gone through some more unfortunate changes, I have been gifted with even greater beauty than I had already possessed. It almost seems unfair that I would be granted such a wonderful gift when there are so many of you who are being forced to suffer from such... regrettable side effects. [What caused these side effects, he's not entirely sure. But he has his suspicions that this wasn't actually just a gift from the heavens.] Ah, I wonder what other gifts I may have been graced with? It seems that my skin has also become harder, perhaps this means that I have also been given super strength!

[And that's where he will end the feed to go test out the possibility of super strength.]

I know this is a bit sudden, but would you all mind coming over for lunch? It's been a long time since we've all been together, and even though a few of us are missing I thought it would be nice if we did this!

[Tamaki's face is covered in flour and sauce and there are a bunch of pots on the stove in the background showing that not only is this a random lunch for all of them, but also one that he made (or rather, is in the process of making). He's hopeful that they'll accept his invitation and it shows on his face.]

((OOC: Everyone can start their own threads and just threadjack where they want to. It'll be like a mingle post, only it's only for the Ouran cast.))

Is the voice from before still here? The one who talked to me?

I tried to think of what I did wrong, but I still don't know... I haven't hurt anyone. Am I really in a "prison"? Does this mean I can't help humans anymore?

All I want to do is to help... I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

[Anybody walking by the Pet Cafe when Haruhi arrives would be treated to a shout of "EEEEH?!" as she listens to the Acumen's message and realizes that no, she hasn't been abducted again by the members of the Host Club.

For the rest of our studio audience, the video feed clicks on as she scrambles to try and replay the Acumen's message, hoping it will somehow make sense the second time around, and you are treated to the confused/angry/omgwtfbbq face of what appears to be a young man.

Unfortunately, technology isn't Haruhi's strong point. After a moment of fumbling and cursing, she gives up on the device and looks around.

She catches sight of the welcome basket, and immediately grabs the pamphlet inside. After taking a quick peek inside and seeing that there's nothing there but sweets - she'd have to save those for Honey-sempai, assuming he was here too - she settles back down and reads through the pamphlet.

Yes. She is the most interesting.]
21 September 2011 at 11:23 am
[At first, the only thing that appears on the screen is a vibrant blue parrot and the arm it's perched on in front of the pet cafe. It flaps around a bit and makes some noise, but for a few minutes that's all there is; no speaking or human face and the only thing that indicates there might be a person is that small glimpse of arm at the bottom of the screen.

And then that few minutes is up and the person behind the bird moves the camera to reveal Tamaki Suoh, self-proclaimed king of the Host Club. He's smiling, of course, and is just generally overflowing with excitement.]

Look! Look everyone! Isn't he beautiful? I hadn't expected to walk out with a pet when I went to the pet shop today, but when I saw him I simply couldn't just leave him there! Ah, I wonder what I should name him... His name must be as majestic and beautiful as he is... Perhaps Kyouya will have some suggestion on what his name should be. Or if anyone else has an idea I would love to hear it! I'm sure they're all wonderful ideas!

I can't wait to bring him everywhere with me! I'd been so alone without Antoinette it's a wonder that I had survived so long without a pet until now. [Becomes slightly serious here, but not very serious.] I suppose I'll have to go to the library to find books about taking care of parrots. Antoinette was a dog so taking care of this little guy won't be the same as taking care of her and I won't have the servants to help me... No matter, I'm sure the others would be more than happy to assist me!

Ah, this is marvelous! I'm so excited to have pet here now! Pets make everything so much better! You can speak to them and play with them and they'll never complain or ignore you! [This would probably the the perfect place for anyone to tune Tamaki out if that hasn't been done already. At this point he's just going to be making unintelligible noises for no other reason than a lack of words to express his excitement.]

Upon entering Sector 4, the very large tent that stands framed by the beach is quickly noticeable. Closer, one can see colors dancing upon the white sheets, like opalesque spires under the moving onyx sky. As you enter one of the wings of the tents, grass give way to wooden flooring, and chains of white blossoms and gold ribbons line the sides. The open dance floor in the center bids one to look up to whimsical white-gold lamps, balls of light dancing in seas of violet, blue, green and pink organza. The fabrics fall down pillars adorned with leaves and flowers. Tables set in white and gold with jewel toned flowers sit at the four wings surrounding the dance floor.

... but it is far too early to take a seat. Smile and greet your fellow attendee, take the hand of a friend, and dance to the music.

Welcome to Marina Academy's First Promenade!

There are large tables with finger foods and punch (not spiked -- save it for the after-party!), and very little space near the walls (sorry, wallflowers! You won't get away so easily. )  After a large number of people are gathered together, Jeanne stands up on the small stage set to the side of the dance floor and taps on the microphone to get everyone's attention...

+ Info post / thread index (please read this first!)
+ Jeanne's greeting speech!
+ Prom King and Queen announcement. (Spoiler: It's Euphie and Kanda.)

[Action | Open to any in the Shelter] Forward dated to some late hour
10 September 2011 at 08:34 pm
[For all his cockiness throughout the day and the shit he pulled picking on other inmates, maybe Karma decided it was time for one hefty backlash. Truth be told he hadn't been able to sleep well since the incident that landed him in jail to begin with. But tonight the Nightmares were bad, taking a turn more for Terrors than just your standard bad dream. He twisted and turned on his cot where he'd passed out with utter boredom. It started off with the smallest of noises, tiny whimpers and the furrow of his brow. But they steadily grew louder into audible shouts of "NO! NO PLEASE!" Until it was pretty certain he had to have woken up a few people in the shelter.

He started thrashing and struggling until he rolled off of the bed. He woke mid-fall with a gasp but crashed to the floor anyway. He groaned softly, curling inward on himself and clutching his chest and head. The fall seriously jarred his wounds so it was taking a moment for him to get his wits about him or the air back in his lungs. He was practically gasping and shaking from fear, swallowing raggedly, trying to get his heart to stop beating so fast.

He wasn't crying. Boys don't cry.
] ((ooc: So anyone can send a voice/video message to talk to him if they'd rather not come see what's wrong so there's not a ton of people crowding him. Anything goes really!))

The Host Club would like to extend a welcome to all the new inmates arriving today. [Have a polite smile.] We sincerely hope your transition into your new accommodations proceeds smoothly and efficiently.

If you find yourself interested in meeting your fellow inmates, there are several events upcoming that may be of interest to you.

Miss Kohran Li has assembled a Talent Show this evening to be held in Sector 4, featuring dancing, singing, and a variety of other talents. And tomorrow will be the Marina Academy's first promenade, to be held in the park in Sector 4. Formal dress is expected.

[And because no announcement is ever complete if it doesn't include an advertisment for the Host Club:]

For those of you planning to attend prom, the Host Club will be in the Athletic Complex if you should require basic dancing lessons, advice on the latest fashions, and anything else you might need to prepare for the upcoming event.

[And Kyouya + various other people will be at the athletic complex, ready to do what they do best.]

((ooc: Sort of spur-of-the-moment (sorry Host Club!) so current members needn't tag in if they don't want (we can always handwave or whatnot). Otherwise, general mingle post.))

[Mori had taken up a room in the shelter in the last two days since Honey had appeared and then vanished once again. The bots had become familiar to him and he had already established a routine somewhat that involved a fair amount of time each day at the training hall as well as the pool. He had just finished swimming several laps when he picked up the communicator noticing the influx of new people as well as the report by Acumen. Shaking the water out of his ears he check to see if there was any sign of his cousin again, but to no avail.]

Are events frequent here?

[It was only his fifth day here and already there had been a surge of inmates temporarily, now new arrivals a talent show and prom all within a week.]

[Filtered to host club.]

[Mori would have been surprised if there weren't some idea or plan for the dance, he was curious about the attire and if they were to go with a simple tux or something else. Then Mori also recalled Kyouya having mentioned something about everyone moving into a mansion in the prison as well.]

When is everyone moving?

[naoto has no idea how this happened. she was with Heine and Nill back at the church - when those twins appeared...]

[and now she's in prison. it's not like it could get any worse. there were still those same boundaries, dangerous people, and the need to survive. she fixes a glare at the camera] I don't care about the crimes you committed or the people you killed. Just know that if you point your teeth at me next, I'll pull them out for you.
[video, open! so, so open.]
06 September 2011 at 05:14 pm
So... promenade, huh? [the voice comes out, but there's no video for a second. it looks like there's something over the camera. maybe a sticker? it's Dani's voice, though, and there's some shuffling.] I don't really know how those go. I went to my high school one, but it was sort of.

High school. [she sounds a little uninterested in the entire high school thing.]

But I think I'll go. You know. Why not? I was invited and all. So, uh-- Jeanne Fran-- Francaix-- and the Student Council, I'm RSVPing! I think. [she fumbles the name, and it comes out "Jean Fransayx". French is beyond her.]But I'm not sure what formal wear is.

[and then the camera feed is on properly, with the sticker removed, to reveal Dani. she's wearing this, her hair is pulled back into a very sad attempt at a bun, and she's got on a pair of clunky green plastic "heels" to go with the outfit. she looks a little perturbed at the entire outfit, like she's not quite sure she's doing it right. she's not.]

Does this count? Maybe if I wear a jacket...? [she scratches her head a little]

Oh, and I guess I should get a date. That's a thing, right? [she considers that for a second... then a second longer... then brightens.]

Hey, Schuldig! What're you doing tomorrow evening? [and she's done.]
The 131st Day
05 September 2011 at 08:53 pm
Good morning, inmates. It is the 131st day of the third generation. More inmates will be integrated into the facility today, so please be aware of this disruption as you go about your day.

As you are likely aware, inmate Kohran Li will be hosting a Talent Show this evening, and inmate Jeanne Francaix is arranging a Promenade on behalf of the Academy tomorrow evening. Please direct concerns or requests to the appropriate party.

The dome will be preparing for autumn shortly. Take that into consideration and begin wrapping up your summer goings-on.

Inmate Xerxes Break, the item you requested is available for pick up at the entrance to the shelter in Sector 0.

[ Here is the image of a woman - very beautiful, but very distraught. Angry, confused, scared, all of that kind of stuff. For a long moment, she doesn't do anything but look pitifully at the camera, before she takes in a sharp breath. Then...: ]

Haaaaaaaaaruhi---! [ Could that get any louder? Sorry, guys. ]

Are you here? I've been looking for you! I checked the clothing stores and the pet shops and the restaurants and the movie theater and the arcade and the clubs! I also checked some school building and the library and the computer labs, in the off chances you might be somewhere boring like that!

Everyone, I'd like to file a missing person alert! I'm looking for one Fujioka Haruhi; Japanese, about 5'1", blood-type O, born on 4 February, fifteen years old! She has big magic brown eyes and brown hair styled in a cute pixie cut, even though she'd look cuter with long hair...! And - very important! - if you find her with some flamboyant-looking blond boy who looks like a shady character, make sure you throw something heavy at him and then get her away from him as soon as possible! Be careful! He'll molest your children!

Suou Tamaki, you over-sized bug - I know you're here. If you're holding my daughter hostage, trying to keep her all to yourself, I will find you. So if you know where my precious baby is, you need to let me know immediately!

[ She calms down a bit, taking a moment to collect herself. There is a lot of energy stored in this body! Her mood suddenly changes to be a lot sweeter, and she offers a calm smile at the camera~ ]

My name is Fujioka Ranka, and I would appreciate it so much if any of you would please help me find my daughter~ I'm sure there are some caring men out there who understand what a scary situation this must be, for a parent to be separated from their only child and thrown into some crazy sci-fi prison on the same day...~ Please help me? ♥
15 August 2011 at 06:09 pm
A prison? [The video shows Honey looks curiously at the device as he read the welcome message because his expression becomes a bit worried, almost as if he's going to cry while tightly holding onto Usa-chan]

But, I didn't even do anything wrong, or at least that I remember--

For a dream, this isn't a very nice one.
[Action] Open | Early Morning | Training Hall
15 August 2011 at 10:02 pm
[It was still early but Mori hadn’t slept well the previous night, so to distract himself with training and made his way to the dojo once the restraint had been removed. There had already been a lot more noise this morning than the one when he had arrived, most likely related to the cryptic message that had been left the previous night. Dismissing it for the moment though, Mori had luckily found a change of clothing that resembled a proper uniform before grabbing one of the bamboo swords and starting to warm up with some simple downward strikes. He couldn't argue with any of the charges that Acumen had placed against him, so there was no point in seeking forgiveness or attempting to plead a case refuting them; though the charges of trespassing and breaking and entering were not ones that he could recall easily. But did that mean that Mitsukuni would be imprisoned here at some point as well with similar charges since he had been involved in those incidents as well?

Preoccupied with his thoughts, Mori’s footing faltered as he hit a slick spot on the floor and wound up on his back staring at the ceiling of the training hall for a few moments before sitting up and resting against the sword. How could he support his cousin when he was imprisoned, especially since he had decided to attend university to pursue law to ensure he would be able to. Taking a breath he stood up practicing once more, though after a few swings he became aware of someone else entering.]

[A blank stare is picked up by the communicator, seeming to almost stare past it as he gazes around the park where he arrived. The basket beside him is mostly untouched though he holds the brochure in his hand.]

Ah, a prison.

[Mori picks up the device; his expression doesn’t seem to change but slightly a slight softening around the eyes that those who know him might pick up on. Also in the slight shifting there is the sound of a chain for a moment and a glimpse of one of the restraints attached around his leg.]

Mitsukuni? [Are you there?]
08 August 2011 at 11:19 pm
[What might be a familiar face to some appears on the network. Hikaru sits quietly for a moment with an extremely confused look upon his face.]

Hey, has anyone seen Coco or Chanel? I could have sworn they were here...

[Coco and Chanel being the ferrets he and Kaoru had when they were here a few weeks back.

Speaking of Kaoru...]

Kaoru, you know I don't like it when you go sneaking off! You should come back right now!

[Because I don't feel good.

Because something feels off.

Because I need you to know that everything is okay.]

Ugh... the hell did I eat yesterday?

[And now he looks STRAIGHT AT YOU ALL giving a peace sign, giving his best NOTHING IS WRONG AND EVERYTHING IS SUPER FINE look!]

What's up?

((I fail at keeping up with things so this is backdated to the evening before! Sorry!))

[Anyone just outside the shelter might see the tall, dark-haired boy just standing about idly. He feels as lost as he looks, after reading his "greeting" message.]


[The deep voice coming from the teen is quiet and rather emotionless. Takashi drops to his knees, an icy sort of despair written in his dead expression.]

Where is.. Mitsukuni.

[Slumping forward, Takashi stares blankly at the ground.]

.....I deserve to be here.
