[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

[The feed turns on to the sound of someone snorting and then taking a deep breath. That is your only warning before the scream echoes and quite possibly leaves your ears ringing, if not out right deafens you. Whoops.]
[He lets the scream echo for a moment before snorting again. His tone carries the sneer perfectly.]
Let's assume for a moment I'm willing to play along with this bag of unparalleled bullshit. So.
Who else got themselves caught in this fucking mess? Because regardless of whether I'm guilty or not of what-the-fuck-ever nonsense this overeager computer insists I'm guilty of, I can name a good deal of idiots more deserving to be stuck here. And if I'm here and they're not, I'm calling bullshit on the concept of Justice as a whole.
I was in the middle of something fucking important, goddamnit.
[And then the feed dies.]

[it's a clear day, and they've put it off for one reason or another long enough: Ven and Roxas are meeting up for the contest to end all contests, the glider race!]
[Roxas has been practicing with his keyblade glider regularly to try and get more skilled with it, and he thinks he's pretty good. but Ven has been at this for longer than he has -- if not too much longer; he knows Ven has only been trained for a year, right? -- and so he isn't confident he'll win. but he's determined to at least make the match close]

Hey Kira. I just wanted to let you know I've picked you to be my new roommate if you want. You can come over any time and move your stuff in or get a better tour or I guess whatever you need to do. I suppose you need a key too, so I should give you that.
Anyways, if you're still interested let me know, and welcome to the apartment!

[Cain is in a strange mood, to say the least. He's currently going through withdrawal, although he's mostly being medicated for it, and he's noticed in his last few interactions with people that he's dropped his guard. Not that he really cares right now, anyway.]
[He flips on a video feed and smiles]
So I noticed today that there is some increased security regarding your files, and that I am no longer able to check undetected. Being that I am currently completely reliant on Sentience for my medicine, it is probably suicidal to check in. ... Oh, Who am I kidding! That won't stop me. I could pull up personal medical records this time, but it will probably be too boring. There is some sort of ban on sex or something, right?
So no one is carrying anything appropriately disgusting?
[If you want to find him, he's right outside the noodle shop, eating plain rice noodles in a vegetable broth with his fingers. He doesn't usually care what anyone thinks of him, and now it's only worse.]

[So, a couple days ago there was a little accident involving a certain caped crusader of the batgirl kind. And Tim, being Tim wasn’t going to let one of his kind get “outed” like that. He was aware it didn’t suppose that much of a big deal in this place, where not many people were even from their world and little people actually cared.
But he hadn’t been lying about his name ever since he set a foot in here to let it out that easily. He’d fight to make everybody believe Steph and Batgirl were completely different people and the idea of them being the same was ridiculous. So, the solution he has found?
Crossdressing. For justice.
You’ll find “Batgirl” patrolling around, being obviously less careful about being seen than what she would usually be. Tim wants to be seen, especially around Steph. But he doesn’t actually want to be noticed or talked to, so at the same time the mysterious Batgirl will sneak away once he’s completely sure you have seen him and Steph in the same place at the same time.
If you’re in need of help, though? Not even a bit (or not so bit) of stuffing will stop a Robin from helping people.
[OOC: SO YES Tim dressed up as a girl to prevent Steph's identity as BG to be known. Feel free to notice something is slightly off, but Tim is a good actor.]

[ Seeing as how no one else was popping up to view the apartment room he had available, Ventus decided now was as good a time as any to meet Tim for their sparring match. He had been wanting to go at with him for a bit, and he needed something to do anyways. Tim had suggested the gym, so that was where he was headed, today dressed in jeans, sneakers, and a green t-shirt with some logo on it. He would have worn his usual attire, but they were in the dryer... because yeah, they needed a wash. Bad. He was sort of horrible about his laundry when Aqua or Master Eraqus wasn't around. His way of telling it was laundry time was if his main set was super dirty, or he was down to one set of underwear. Whoops.
Anyways, he trotted into the gym and headed for what he called 'the sparring room', sure Tim would already be there. He seemed like the kind of guy that was always early, you know? Or dramatically late, but for very dramatic reasons, of course. Either way, he hoped he hadn't kept the other waiting to long.]

[Yay, Marina! Have a Ventus on your screen, offering a cherry smile and a little wave, behind him what looked like the living room of the apartment he used to share with Aqua.]
Uh, hi there! My name's Ventus and I've been here a bit - in Marina and this apartment. And, well, there's an extra room and it's been sitting empty for awhile. So, if anyone out there is wanting to get out of the Shelter or just move out in general, I have a free space. Er, I guess that means I'm looking for a roommate. If you're interested, send me a vid or stop by to check it out.
[And while he waits for replies on that statement, he's out in the gym today with several of the padded mats. He's practicing dodging and rolling and moves that go with it. So if you're there he's leaping onto the mats, rolling, coming up and slashing or throwing his blade up as if intercepting an attack, then getting off and repeating this process.
Really, it all just looks very dizzying.]

[The video turns on to a straight-up view of the "sky", the sound of running water heard for a moment or two before the camera quickly swings down to reveal an area of the waterfall, and then turns to a miserable looking boy who's trying to get his feet under him and stand up on one of the rather slippery rocks there as he adjusts his headset. He's very confused and very off balance at the moment, and takes an uncertain look at his very not right location while running a hand through his blonde hair.
After a beat, he finally addresses the communicator somewhat haltingly as he starts to hop from rock to rock with equal hesitation]
Um... I-I know this is going to sound really weird but, um... did anyone happen to see me out last night?
Because I'm pretty sure this isn't where I went to bed, I didn't even know we had a waterfall here actually, but it's not the first time I've gone, ah-- sleep... walking, you could say... [Yeah, go with that Emil; it's sadly less weird than explaining that the Other Guy sometimes hijacks, in his opinion]
So, I'd-- I'd just really like to know, if anyone can... tell me anything, I guess.
[Except there his feet go out from under him on an unlucky landing; sending him sliding into the still frigid pool, the yelp he makes and the feed both cutting off as he goes under. So... give him a minute]

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!]

[Check it out, Marina!! Today there is a very classy (and very tall) alien woman walking through Sector 2.
She has a violin case in her hand, on her way to return it to the education center. She doesn't really have any use for it anymore, since Sentience provided her with her electric one a few days ago. But she's just. too busy being self-absorbed, so it took her awhile to get around to it. Do not judge her!!
Anyway, education center. Good.
Except she gets distracted on her way there by something called a "Pet Cafe," what even. What. Even.
After spending awhile just Staring Stupidly at this building, she turns her communicator on to address everybody. Because seriously, what is this thing..............]

[Around lunch-time, one could find Akito sitting on a rooftop in sector three. He swings his legs as he thinks, mind going over everything that's happened lately. Setsuna's left too...he's going to miss him greatly. Slowly more people were leaving and others were arriving. Sometimes he felt like one of the only constants in this place, though that wasn't true. There were others who had been here as long as he had.
His communicator is turned on, listening to the network. After awhile, he turns the voice setting on and begins to sing.
It's a song without words, but even then it manages to make the emotions behind the tune clear. It starts off soft, almost sad. But gradually, a tone of hope creeps into it, flowing steadily from that into a pure happiness, a joy of simply being alive. For those who've heard such a thing before, they'll recognise Akito's tuner song easily as he sings his own song, pitch-perfect and flowing with ease of long practise.
After awhile it quietens again into a soft, calm happiness, before slowing to a stop. Akito sighs softly, but doesn't say anything after that. All he wanted to do was sing, and share it with the network. But he'll reply if talked to, and is easily gotten to if anyone wishes to find him]
[ The 164th Day ]
23 April 2012 at 09:37 pm
Good morning, everyone. Today, is the 164th day of the third generation, and as promised, the facility will be experiencing a light dusting of snowfall throughout the day. Please bundle up appropriately if you are heading outdoors, especially anyone participating in the reconstruction of the Devil's Compass. I will have cocoa prepared at lunchtime for any crew who might be interested!
I have another, less sobering thought question for you all to consider. It was brought to my attention some time ago that the rapid changing of the seasons does not suit all inmates. As many of you have likely noticed, this facility has rapidly cycled through seasons, typically changing them once every other week. The purpose of this protocol is to keep inmates engaged in their surroundings with an ever-changing environment. I am considering changing that, but another inmate expressed a preference for the seasons to change faster, as they had been.
What do you think about it? Do you enjoy the rapid rotation of the seasons? Would you prefer it to always be spring? Would you rather it to be lengthened to something more representative of your world's seasonal span? Bear in mind that everything is adaptable: the passage of time within the dome does not currently reflect the passage of time, either on your home planet, nor this planet.

Okay, so the Air Tech weren't as cool as his Glider, in his humble opinion, but he still liked them. He liked blasting off into the air and floating and then coming down. He was currently riding up as high as he could go, letting himself drift, weightless for a moment, and then coming back down to earth, mostly in the park, but if he could find a quiet spot in the building districts he would use that too so he didn't get in anyone's way.
Except, maybe he cheated at the end when he cast Aerora - a swirling shield of air that kept him from hitting the ground and, you know, made him look kind of cool. He knew he should be practicing his landings, but... the Aerora was cool, okay? It totally made him look heroic.
But, for a moment, he thought of his Glider, and thinking of that -

[Agito's in a mood today. That mood is a dangerous one. Shit's happened lately and even though Akito's managed to somewhat pull himself together, the shark still isn't pleased about it. Beating the crap out of the original isn't going to be enough to make him calm down either, which is why he's stalking the dome, AT whirring softly as he glides along, eye narrowed and glaring at anyone who crosses his path.
He could use someone to spar with. Not enough to get his AT taken, which he would bitch forever about. But just enough to maybe satisfy him. He needs something to do damnit]
((OOC: No fights will end up with any major damage done, it'll be more of a spar than anything unless you manage to piss him off. Feel free to also beat the crap out of him if he pisses your character off. But basically, expect him to reply with hostility unless he knows the character in question.

Good day, Marina! How are you all doing today?
I was just wondering, would anyone be interested in holding a stage play?[ She holds up some of the scripts that she had requested from Acumen, notably The Azure Sparrow, Trip to the Occident, and Thousand Furs. ]

The Saint wants to see how far his Cosmo can reach its limit. Little by little, taking his time. He may end quite exhausted, though he's used to hard work.
