Sasha (Athena)
----- [Voice - Private to Tieria] -----

[Sasha was finishing up in packing the last few bits of cupcakes as her Valentines and addressing them properly. As she signed a particular card, she remembered something and placed a private call --]

Hello, Tieria? Good morning. May I speak with you, if you have a minute?

----- [Voice - Private to Sam] -----

[After taking her Valentines to the Post Office for delivery, she still had another box to give. She had been hesitant to actually single him out, but... she really wanted to do something for him in return for all his help, and decides at the last moment to give it to him personally -- she has time before the Astronomy Class' special presentation anyway. She walks across from the Post Office in Sector 1 to one of the parks in Sector 4, settles on a bench, and takes a deep breath before placing her call --]

Sam, hello. Um... do you have a moment?

----- [Action - Closed to Alucard | Evening] -----

[Sasha had long left the Astronomy presentation and was at the park once more, waiting for someone, as there were things she wanted to know from him...]

[She's listening to the network, wondering if any familiar names will pop up, but mostly her attention is elsewhere - she's just been to Sector 0 to pick up her request, and now she's sitting at the beach, staring down at the pictures she asked for.

Her mother, and the other pilots... will she ever see them again? Is her mother okay? Did any of the other pilots survive somehow, like she and Ushiro did?

Sighing softly, she pulls her knees up to her chest and continues to examine the pictures. It's hard to look at them, but she's glad their faces won't fade with time now. She'll always have them with her.]

[There is a flash of video, a shot of an iris a very unusual shade of brown--almost more of a red or orange hue to it before the video cuts out.]

They expect us to actually use this stupid thing? [The sounds of movement over the microphone, the kid obviously has no idea the machine is even on. But hey! The video switches back on and you get a full face of someone who is obviously pissed and holding his temper together by sheer willpower.]

Just forget it. It doesn't matter. [The device is clenched tightly in Kyou's hands, which are shaking. Therefore the screen is shaking as well. He has no idea the communicator is on but it's actually amazing he hasn't broken it yet.]

Tieria Erde
[Tieria sounded a bit more business-like than he had been for the past several days, like he was suppressing how he might feel about this from coming through in his voice.]

Setsuna did not return to the apartment last night, and his communicator appears to be inactive on the network. I will be attempting to look for him in the dome.

[He was terse, brief, and his words were clipped. He cut off the communication quickly.]


[What Tieria might be like in person, however, was a bit different. He would be roaming the dome most of the day on some hope that maybe Setsuna just had the communicator turned off, but he knew that was unlikely. Others could really catch him anywhere in a random passing. Towards the end of the day, he would end up in the butterfly pavilion, just sort of sitting there. Going back to the empty apartment wasn't the most pleasant of ideas.]

Yuri Lowell
[ hey there Marina; have a quick shot of the artificial sky, some trees, and then an amused-looking face floating into view. some of you may -- uh -- recognize Kanda's costume from the ball! ]

Guess I owe someone a thank-you for the cookies. They really helped soften the whole "in prison for the rest of your life" blow.

[ why doesn't he really look or sound like it's a huge blow? well... ] Can anybody tell me more about this other version of me, the one that's supposedly back home even as we speak? That'd be great.

花村 陽介|Yosuke Hanamura
Please tell me this is a dream. Please. I need to wake up and be in my own bed. Or anywhere but here. I don't care how real this feels, it's messed up. Really, really messed up.

[Yosuke's trying to get his bearings on the situation, but really, he’s just looking around him and getting frustrated. Denial is very serious business, after all.]

What the hell kind of crimes are these supposed to be, anyway?! HELL NO! I've never-! None of this is making any sense, dammit! [Just thinking about it seems to get him worked up, but after a minute, he calms back down to a frustrated panic.]

Ugh, "whoever's" doing this… very funny. I don't even know how I got here, and I'm really supposed to believe all this? Man, this dream sucks. What a nightmare.

[He lets out a sigh.]
Fine. If I have to play along with this... other people are supposed to be able to hear this, right? Well, I’m kind of looking for someone. Well, a couple of "someones," actually. If I got stuck with something like this, they can’t be far behind, right? Uh, just let me know, okay?

Come on, self. Wakeupwakeupwakeup...

Bookman Junior (Lavi)
[ on his way to Saki's place, a bag with a pair of pants and a shirt and a few volumes of the newer Encyclopedia Britannica slung over his shoulder. listening to all the newcomers over the communicator as he walks from Sector 3 to Sector 5, taking in names and speech patterns and the sounds of their voices. newbie day is always interesting. ]

((ooc: Thread with Saki is closed, but he can be intercepted before or after!))

[Unlike Leo Soren has taken the time to read the brochure and he's, more or less, got the basics of the communicator figured out. Still, his voice is pretty stiff as he's doing his best to sound calm and in control.]

I've never simply murdered anyone in my life. Any lives I've taken were during a time of war. A war, I might add, that was not started by the country I worked for.

Looting? Well, I suppose I have to give you that one.

[He falls silent for a moment before speaking again.]

My name is Soren and I'm looking for a man named Ike. Has anyone by that name also been brought here?

Gabriel (aka. The Trickster, Loki)
[This guy looks pretty uncertain. He looks like he's about to speak, but clamps his mouth shut. Then he puts a finger up, looks like he is about to say something -- with conviction! -- but sighs instead. With a lopsided little smile, he looks at the camera in earnest.]

I'm about to have uh... a strange little request here.

[He enunciates every word. He really means business.]

Can someone please say, "April Fools!"? Or maybe, "You're on Candid Camera!" or even, you know, wear a sideways baseball cap and rush me with a camera crew and say, "You just got punked"?



[Heavy sigh, as his face takes on a look that's more peeved than earnest.]

Barring that, I'm looking for a guy named Dean. Man, we need to talk about your car.
[Voice | Closed to any who haven't responded already]

[Her voice is very clear and steady, though heavily laced with anger.]

Let's cut to the chase.

I know you're here somewhere, Kaguya. And when I find you, I will rip open your stomach and burn every single one of your internal organs to ashes. ♥

[A pause. She continues, less angry but still quite pissed.]

So...anyone know how to get this damned ball and chain off of my leg?
08 March 2011 at 04:59 pm
Um... hello everyone!

[It's taken Conan a little while to pull himself together enough to post this -- his first reaction at arriving was a mix of sheer incredulity at his 'crimes', and slowly growing anger at the malfunctional AI which brought him here.

Also at the chain and ball attached to his ankle. He's a detective, not a criminal. He chases and catches the bad guys! By what stretch of the imagination does he have any reason for being in here??

But he's a little calmer now, and able to pull up the trusty kiddie act to cover his real emotions.

Could someone help me? I'm not really sure what's going on, and this place is very strange! Is everyone here really criminals?

Sakura Kinomoto
[Sakura waves at the screen with her pompoms. Yes, pompoms.] Hello! It's been a while since I last asked so - [shifts and smiles]

Would anyone like to join the cheerleading team? We don't meet every day - just three times a week! You get to cheer for Yuuri-san and Suzaku-san at the baseball games too. And you can wear the cheerleading uniform! [like the one she's wearing]

All you have to do is ask me or Josak-san and we'll let you join. [you can even approach her in person down at the baseball field. She's not doing baton work today, just cheers and some easy gymnastics. It's nice to do something distracting. :) ]
08 March 2011 at 08:55 pm
I must admit that I still find myself in a mild state of incredulity. To be spirited away to a penitentiary in a nebulously ascertained area by means unknown, is in itself cause for indignation. To do so in the middle of my ensuring the propagation of my species makes it more so. Particularly when, as you say, it is 'best' for me and the timeline from hence I hailed.

[the irritation in her voice is clear, but after a small pause and sigh, it lifts a little]

I apologize. Little will be achieved from griping. If those in charge of this facility and this machine, Acumen, was it? If you are listening I beseech that you at least return to me that Very Important item which you have taken. I assure you it is by no means dangerous.

If any others are listening, which I believe must be the case, then of you I ask to enlighten me. Whatever you can tell me about this Marina facility would be most appreciated.
08 March 2011 at 09:02 pm
[video on to a familiar/unfamiliar face! he is smiling pretty cheerfully. if you know Fuuma, you know this guy. if you're one of the first inmates, you might know this guy! and if you're from TRC-- well]

Has anyone seen a sentient flying carpet around here? I think I got distracted for a minute, and it must've wandered off.

We were just getting to be friends!
08 March 2011 at 09:14 pm
Is this some kind of bullshit joke? A prison? I may have done a lot of things in the past that would have gotten me in here, but I was pardoned for all of that!

[punches a nearby wall and lets out a string of curses; partially because that actually hurt but mostly because she knows that she probably does still belong in here.] The least you could do is get this thing off my leg. It’s not like I’m going to go around killing people.

[some silence, a sigh.]

Is a normal life really too much to ask?

Hiling Care
[Hiling doesn't seem to be in a very good mood today. Despite the festivities, she's feeling rather down. Having made her way out to the edge of the dome, she draws something from her bag before dropping it at her feet. She takes her knife and stabs repeatedly at the smooth surface.

tink tink tink

Though her eyes are vacant, here is a hint of a smile on her face as she persists. It's a nice sound.

[And for every five people flipping out over being in prison, have a little girl sitting and eating jellybeans.] I lose Be~rn... Now I'm in pri~son... Worst of all~......

Is this headset! It's completely wrong! Can I get this in pink?! How does anyone expect the <cute> and <perfect> me to not match. Such an inhumane punishment, right?

[POUT POUT. Nomming more jellybeans while kicking her legs. And some people might recognize that metal clanking... And just as calmly.]

So... Anyone feel like cutting my leg off~? ♪

Ne, ne, Suza-kun! How do people take off chains from their ankles?!

(ooc: this is right after she tells Gabriel that she'll ask Suzaku about the chains in this thread

Also, yeaaaah. It's pretty early. She's been practicing her guitar the whole night until she happened to randomly start watching and listening to the main channel, like a TV, since there's suddenly this climb in activity.)
