Eh... there really are a bunch of people today.
[Lifting a hand she scratches the back of her neck, turning around to glance at the many other people in the park. There hasn't been this many new arrivals at once for a while, has there? Despite looking a bit daunted by the numbers, she practically glows, beaming. Her appearance is brighter than recently, less tired and worn. She's confident back, straight as she stares into the device cheerfully.]
Morning, Marina! Today I wanted to make an announcement. I wonder if this is a good time...with all the confusion. But if we're all stuck here for a while, might as well--!
[Lifting up a colorful sign, it's adorned with many different rainbow colors and bunnies, with the word 'Ethics' written in the center of it all.]
Ta-da! Starting in a couple of days I'll be teaching my very own class. [They'll let just about anyone teach, huh.]
I'm teaching ethics! The program was put together by the president-- ahh! [Looking embarrassed] I mean-- [She falters again, nearly saying 'Headmaster' before catching herself] Kaien Kurosu, and I think with everyone's unique backgrounds and the diversity represented it could be a really good thing.
[Giving the peace sign she flashes a wide, toothy grin, fangs clearly visible as she glows.]
Everyone should attend! You don't have to worry about it being crazy hard like math or something. It'll be fun. And... Oh yeah--!
[Lifting a finger into the air, just remembering:]
I almost forgot! It's mandatory for those on the defense force.

[It's getting late. Otoha knows this, but he's not on duty tonight. He lets his feet wander, and walks through the streets. He doesn't really care that he has no idea where he's going to end up. It's nice to be able to just wander, no pressure... right?]
[... No. He still has his city in his thoughts. It's hard to think of it as anything but 'his'. It was his to protect, to care for, to help grow... and he had lived there his whole life. If anyone could claim the city as theirs, it was him, right?]
[But maybe... that wasn't quite right. That line of thinking was where the problem with Eko started, more or less. He sighs, and realizes that his shoes are crunching down on sand. The beach, then. He puts his hands in his pockets, staring out at the water, letting his thoughts wander along where they will.]

( She thinks she only dreamt that her family was murdered. )
[When her voice comes through the communicator, it's quieter than anyone will have heard from her before.
Michael? Michael, where are you?
[a tentative pause, but he doesn't answer quickly enough. her voice steadily gets both louder and more hysterical.
I had a bad dream. Michael? [taking panicked, shallow breaths.
] Johann, Michael answer me
! I need you!
[rising to a screech.
]You can't just leave me here!
((canon update! will answer tagbacks properly later, sorry! ♥))

[Starting from about mid-morning, the education center's craft room will be open and ready for the members of, and those curious about, the Sewing Club! Piles of fabric and patterns are there for those without inspiration, and of course, there are plenty of sewing machines open for those with it. There are also snacks and drinks set up on nearby tables, and relaxing but upbeat music wafts through the room.
There was a (handwaved) announcement earlier in the morning, with directions to the building and the room, so anyone is free to drop by and see what it's all about.]
((ooc: if you'll only be there for a short or particular time, please indicate it in the subject line! otherwise, just have fun XD))

[It's been a long time since they've felt stirrings like these. There's a restlessness in their movements, the subtle, minor twitches of a caged animal. Anger simmers and throbs underneath their skin, and anyone who walks through the park will see the cruel and angry gouges within the earth and trees that marks their passing.]
Have you ever killed before, fellow inmates? If so, what did it feel like to you? [They truly want to know, and though there might be a grin on their face, their expression is pensive.]
((OOC: Potential for fights here, if you tick 'em off enough! Fair warning. <3))
[Action | Open | Church]
15 July 2011 at 11:42 am
[ On one of the pews near the front of the open church, two figures sat. One, dark-haired in a trench coat, sitting straight and contemplatinve, while the other, lighter-haired in a rumpled jacket leaned his head on the other's shoulder.
Or perhaps they're just looking around, going about their own ways, looking at the stained glass and watching those who come and go... ]

Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Children of all ages! Gather round, one and all! The Fight Club is finally underway! [Their double-edged voice quivers here with barely restrained anticipation, and after they dig their claws deep into their palms, they'll begin again.]
We're so sorry to have kept you waiting, but no longer! Come on down to the arena! Sit back, relax--but most importantly, do enjoy the show! It's going to be a night you'll never forget! [They laugh hard and long here, unrestrained glee crackling through their tone before the connection is cut.]
[Won't you join them?]
((OOC: Each character will be announced into the ring through Gabriel, the lovely referee! He's on hiatus right now, so just assume it happens. <3))
[Action] Coffee shop goers, come one come all!
20 June 2011 at 09:09 pm
[Something is in the air! That would be the tempting smell of fresh brewed coffee in the new establishment in Sector 5. The drinks are hot, the atmosphere relaxing -- come have a drink and a chat, won't you?]
((OOC: this is a mingle-style post for anyone who wants to check out the coffee shop! like 4 of my kids are interested, so I thought one BIG post for everyone who wants to stop by would work best! Tag around, tag each other, have fun!))
((OOC 2~: Dani is in the shop, behind the counter, making coffee for all! If you want to order that's the thread to hit up. <3 ))

A coffee shop now? [See that smirk, Marina? That's an Angel trying to hide his displeasure.] I suppose coffee must be somehow vital to the health of Lilim, since entertainment apparently isn't a good enough reason to bring something in.
[He's lurking around outside the shop, but not going in. Any other curious prisoners come to check out the coffee shop?]
((ooc: getting in some CR before a plot knocks him out for the better part of the day. if you'd like to talk to him today, come say hi!))

Care to run into them?]

heard the news by now, haven't you? Our precious arena is finally
complete! [Their mood has been brightened substantially with this knowledge, and they're leering expectantly into the video.]
This means the Fight Club will be starting so very
soon... You all do have your paperwork filled out, hm? Maybe if you bribe us, we'll let you in, anyway! Really, we can't think of what else
we'd need to say, so! Questions? Concerns? Anymore contenders?((OOC: Thanks to our lovely Ava-mun, we now have a Fight Club Rules and Sign Ups! page!))
08 June 2011 at 10:28 pm
[There's some quiet cursing, before Otoha sighs and then speaks.]
I've never met doctors as stubborn as these robots. They won't let me out of this hospital room. They keep trying to shock me to get me to stay still.
[He is so not amused.]
Can someone convince them for me?

[Dream Option 1: Closed to pre-existing CR]
Red tinted color creeping into his vision, coating his heels, seeping into his clothes, dripping form his hands. Hei's breath came harsh as he pounded through the blood washed puddles of a desecrated land. Searching, always searching. Where was she? Where are you
? He won't stop until he finds her, and just the tiniest glint of something
will surely make him stop.
But do you want him too? [Dream Option 2: Open to all]
Hei walked steadily, his mask a dull reflection of light in the night sky. There was no moon; that had been hidden from his gaze for ten years. There were no stars either, just the fake lights in the sky signifying a contract. There was only darkness and the steady, near silent pad of feet as Hei approaches, first slowly, then picking up pace, running, running straight for you as he pulls out his knife and throws it, the blade lighting up blue as it charges with an electric fire.
They say that if you die in a dream, you die in real life. Do you dare chance it or will you flee? Because Hei will
hunt you down. He never leaves a job unfinished, one way or another. ( Closed to Conrad )

[Otoha's already asleep, in a hospital bed. The bots wouldn't let him leave with his arm injured like it is - he's lost too much blood already.]( The dream - warning for LOTS OF BLOOD. )[[ooc; For reference on the setting, see this video at about 4:21 in. This dream is open to all! Feel free to come across Otoha in the darkness. He's not going anywhere.]]

[Ken had spent the day fixing up the place he was going to move into within the next few days and while he is sure to not have done anything overly strenuous, maybe all that dusting, cleaning and moving furniture about caught up with him... but it was still early...!

26 May 2011 at 11:21 pm
[In a chilled but cozy hole-in-the-wall of a planetside tavern, the Valhallan 597th celebrates its latest victory.]
[Decorated officers, men and women alike, dominate the building as they carouse and joke, cheeks flushed red with the joy of another victory, as well as due to a fair amount of alcohol in their bloodstreams. Delicious food is plentiful, and whether you like to flirt or gamble, opportunities for both are abound.]
[In a fashionably late manner, Cain strides into the tavern, standing tall and proud with a goofy damn grin plastered on his face, wearing a fresh greatcoat and uniform. Right behind him, his rather malodorous and less-than-easy-on-the-eyes aide Jurgen slips inside. Fortunately, most people should be too drunk to care about his absurd body odor, or the skin diseases which are amazingly resistant to the finest medical technology the Imperium has to offer.]
[Gesturing over to the woman running the bar, who looks sufficiently impressed when she realizes who he is--the famous Commissar Ciaphas Cain, hero of the Imperium, admired and respected across the galaxy.]
Barkeep, a round for the finest men and women to have ever served in the Imperial Guard. It's on me. [Gathering up a waiting mug, he raises it and strikes an incredibly perfect dramatic pose, his voice booming with equal dramatic flare.]
A toast--to Valhalla! To the Emperor! [And amid the enthusiastic cheers, Cain chugs down the brew without stopping for a breath.]
--((OOC: Eat, drink, and be merry! Everyone here is human, and either a citizen of the Imperium or a member of the Valhallan 597th! Don’t worry if you don’t know the canon; Cain’s subconscious will basically ignore any discrepancies.))

[Has Subaru ever mentioned he's not that great of a public speaker? Because he's not. He's going to do his best, though! He's in the process of taking breath when the feed clicks on, and he offers a bright, if nervous smile.]
Um-- Hello! I-- some of you know me, but if you don't, my name is Subaru Sumeragi! Um-- since there's a church now, and it's open to everyone, I'm-- I'm going to be offering some omamori for everyone!
[he seems less nervous when he's talking about things he knows, brightening considerably as he talks.] Omamori are small amulets that you can tie onto your bags or your communicators or anything like that, and there's different kinds that help bring good luck and things! You can get them to help with good health, or help on a test, or to help bring you love! They're usually from shrines and temples, back home, so I think it will be okay to offer them at the church.
A-anyway, I just wanted to ask if there's any in particular you want help with, so I know which omamori to make! So if there's something you're hoping for, you can have one. They'll just be at the church, so-- you don't have to tell anybody what kind you're taking, when you go to get them!
Ah-- thank you!

If anyone is looking for Harry Potter, he's gone.
[He had been woken up by the robots coming in to clear out Harry's things. He had been stupid to think that he could have a 'normal' life here. Frustrated, Otoha grabbed his sword and headed to the dojo to practice. He needs to stop thinking, needs to break things and cut things and destroy something.]
[He unsheathes his sword, taking a moment to calm himself as much as he can before slicing into the first dummy.]
