[ Kissing Bots! ]
28 December 2010 at 04:31 pm
Acumen's systems tick over to midnight, and somewhere in the depths of the holding facility, dozens of little silver spheres shiver and come to life. They rise up into the air, dangling little bouquets of mistletoe, and hover in waiting for the door to open again. And when it does, they swoop out and work their way into the dome proper, making it out just in time for daybreak.

Now they're scattered all over the dome, Anissina's gifts and Eggman's souvenirs. They're seeking out people to bring together in the holiday spirit...

Whether they like it or not!

[Event | Yule Ball]
23 December 2010 at 02:53 pm
Night was falling, the smell of spices were in the air and Jennifer was busy putting the last finishing touches on all the hard work everyone had done to get the athletic complex decked out and festive.

Walking through the front door, you'll see a table where you can put all your presents on for now with a tree sitting behind it. Don't worry, the bots will make sure no one but Jennifer takes any gifts off the table! There's also a series of volunteers ready and willing to help you out of your coats if you need it, but otherwise, please don't hesitate to shed off a few layers.

It might be a little warm if you don't.

Inside the main entrance, Jennifer's taken care to section off the room into the main dancing area and a stage salvaged from the Valentine's Day auction off to the side for the performances later on. Surrounding the outer edges, are tables and settees salvaged from the Shelter so that those who wish to watch can do so in comfort. Do be careful though. Scented candles are lit on each table to provide a soft light to balance out the harshness of the lights over the dance floor.

And of course there's food. Punch and egg-nog and shrimp and cheese and a myriad of other finger foods. There are cookies decorated with frosting and lemon bars and cranberries and a giant bowl of sugared dates. Marzipan is scattered across the table and a small gingerbread house sits as a centerpiece, but the cake is the main attraction.

But the cake comes with a price. Anyone who wants a piece, must do what it says on the toothpick first. Have fun! And no cheating. Someone might be watching to make sure no one does.

Music is already playing and Jennifer's leaving things up to the host club to make sure people start dancing, because what's sadder then a ball with no dancing? Do make sure to enjoy yourselves. It's why we're all here!

((ooc: The first thread is for the cake game and will list various things you must do. The second is for performers to do their act so we can group reactions together in one spot. And last, mingle, threadjack, and have merry with whatever your characters want to do in the rest of the post!

As an ooc gift meme was suggested instead of actually threading out every gift exchange, we will be doing that instead, but we highly encourage you to still seek out your gift recipients and build CR in the post as you will.

Also, mistletoe can be found neatly tucked inside wreaths at the main entrance to the Athletic complex and also from the cloak room leading into the dance hall. Be nice! Ask permission first.))

Hi guys! For the ones who are interested, I'm recruiting people for a little Chirstmas Carol choir at Mis Jennifer's ball. All the children are invited to participate, and we can have some teenagers and adults as well. The rehearsal will take place at the Education Center, Music Hall. See you all there!~

[Private to Minako]

Hey Minako! Want to ask you something...

[End of private]

[Action | Open to everyone]

[Ade is already at the Music Hall, with a CD player plugged to some amplifiers and various CDs on a table. She's carrying a bunch of papers which included some Christmas Carol songs and is trying to accommodate them in order. Waiting for people to come over, she sighs and it is audible in the quiet room, then leaves the papers on said table and stands firmly, taking a deep breath and finally vocalizing a bit for her performance.]

((ooc: Everyone is welcome to join the choir! :D))

I hope everyone's having a good day today despite the snow and really it's because of the snow that I just can't let this idea go--Ribbons suggested it!--but wouldn't it be nice to have a winter ball?

We'd have punch! And a fireplace! And of course we'd decorate with garland and ribbons and mistletoe and lots of other cheery, wintry things... It's a little late notice but, maybe if we all pitched in we could get something set-up in a few days? I'd hate to let all this snow go to waste!

[and considering how fast the seasons change... ajdkl;fad She wasn't going to miss her opportunity!]

Snow, hmmm...?

[The video shows Juri, holding a hand out to the snow as it falls, standing in the middle of it without seeming all too bothered by it. Her expression is quiet, maybe a little confused, but she chuckles softly not long after.] How nostalgic.

[AND THEN, the angle switches, view of her face only now, smiling with a bit of a sparkle in her eye.]

More importantly, this is quite a trick, isn't it? Ohoho, very well. Attentive ears best be prepared, as I will only say this once: I am impressed. In fact (truly, I must say)--even I as a lady quite modestly difficult to shake--I've been stumped! I didn't expect to find myself out of the house quite just yet today, for one.

[Really, never mind that she doesn't remember having left, appearing outside of the home she and Yuuki had been sharing was an interesting touch. It made her wonder.]

... Now, then.

I think I might have a walk in this winter wonderland, actually. I'm very interested in having a look around today.
[Voice | Video]

[Brrrr! It was really cold! Ade had never been accustomed to this kind of weather before. Even inside the shelter, the weather was too much for her. Fortunately, she already got a lot of warm clothing (and pretty ones, by the way). Maybe it was luck, but yesterday's events were something that Ade didn't want to ever go through. So embarrassing on her part for crying in front of someone... good thing it wasn't that loud and he couldn't see her. But...]

[Voice | Private to TRC!Kamui]

I acted like such a child [there's a pause, doubting about if she should say it or not]... I'm sorry. It was visible you didn't want any help after all.

[End of Private]

[Ade sighs. If she couldn't get out to look for some apartments, at least some advice from the people who live in other Sectors will help. So...]

[Voice & Video]

Huh... Good morning everyone! I... I wanted to ask you something to the people who live outside the shelter: is there a good and nice place around where you live?

Also, I don't mind having a roommate. This includes the new people who arrived today.

[She finishes with a goofy smile and rolls her eyes with shyness, ending the transmission.]
06 December 2010 at 09:21 pm
Owwww…I feel like I’ve just been hit by a bus. Did a youma attack me...?

[everything is overlapping. she was just at an idol audition wasn't she? no wait - she was resting from the paintball game...wait...paintball? no it was just Usagi's 18th birthday a while ago...................in Marina?!]

...I totally shouldn't have eaten that last slice of cake. Who knew that three helpings of Double Fudge Chocolate Surprise Brownie Baked birthday cake would be so...painful?! And it wasn't even my birthday!

[ooc: I-I will be slowww. ;-; but I wanted to get this in because castmates!!]
29 November 2010 at 11:44 pm
[ Has heard enough over the network to understand it's not a power outage. It's just him... and a few others who seem to be unable to see.

But Kamui is a stubborn, stubborn vampire, and ventures out of his apartment anyway. He doesn't exactly go far, but he'll be damned if there's something that will keep him from doing what he wants to. He relies on his other senses to tell him when he's about to hit something. Eventually, he finds a light post to stop beside -- the metal is cool against his fingers. He's taken his communicator off and holds it in one hand; it's too difficult to hear what's around him with it on. ]

A-ah-- [Subaru is not used to actually using the communicator to instigate conversations yet, but he's getting there!]

I keep meaning to go visit the pet cafe, but I haven't made it yet-- I thought today I would finally try and go! And-- well-- I was wondering if anyone else wanted to come with me! It seems like it's a nice place to go, so...!

A-anyway, I'm sorry for bothering you! [he bows to the camera]

[if you're in sector two, you might stumble across a Subaru on his way to the pet cafe-- or maybe you'll run into him once he's already there! warning: he freaking loves animals.]
22 November 2010 at 09:58 pm
Acumen's being more strict about the restraints, now...

[The words are half muttered, and though he tries to keep his tone neutral, it's clear that the thought bothers Kamui. Acumen seems to be getting more and more stubborn, lately, and he doesn't like the idea of needing to prove anything to the AI.]

There aren't any new arrivals that still have their restraints on, are there?
[voice | OPEN]
16 November 2010 at 06:47 pm

[Why won't you answer meeee?]

Does somebody know where Acumen went? I wanna talk to him 'bout the baby making thing! I saw a whooooole lot of you doin' that stuff before!

Like silly ghost lady! And Lacus lady! Did Orihime have sex too?


[We all know how you'd like to stop him from reading down his list of people he knows had sex that one fateful night, but consider this: GIR has proof that sex makes you happy! And it's safe too! Perhaps he can be a spokesperson. Likely as not.]

16 November 2010 at 07:50 pm
[The scent of baking bread is coming out of the kitchens, along with freshly brewed coffee. The bread itself is in the oven while she's preparing something for lunch -- something that involves meat, spices and vegetables.

Hungry? She can easily share if you don't mind waiting a little~]

[Video|Action|Open] Meet-and-Greet!
11 November 2010 at 05:39 pm
[Have a very nervous-looking Miranda who is trying to hide just how terrified she is of screwing this up.]

Umm...W-Welcome to everyone who just arrived today! [handwave] I know that it can be a little confusing and maybe scary, but Marina isn't a bad place to stay, really.

[Monsters and evil people not withstanding.]

If you would like to maybe m-meet some of the other new inmates, or get to know some of the people who are already here...there will be treats, tea, and hot cocoa in M-Meeting Hall 1 of the Education Center.

Y-You don't have to come if you don't want to! [doesn't want to pressure anyone] But you're not alone here, and you can make some really wonderful friends. And anyone who wants to meet the n-new arrivals is more than welcome to come! If you don't know how to get to the Education Center, I can try to give you directions?

[Miranda will be there with a table that is covered with cookies, cupcakes, brownies, strudels, and hot tea and cocoa just like she promised. She really wishes she had found someone much better suited for this. She's not a spokeswoman or even that confident of a speaker one-on-one. Hopefully they can avoid the robots and not get into trouble for coming?

And she still had one other call to make...]


Umm...K-Kanda? Are you b-busy tomorrow morning?

{OOC: Event-style, threadjacking encouraged. Mingle, mingle!}
09 November 2010 at 08:34 am
Excuse me - is this thing working?...

[A long pause before the voice (a kid's voice) starts speaking again.]

Thank you to whoever gave me the information about Marina. I was just wondering...is this really a prison?

[It doesn't seem so bad. It REALLY doesn't seem so bad. Aren't prisons supposed to be awful? ... He takes a few seconds before speaking again. This second question is something he kind of needs to know, but he's not sure which answer he wants to hear - on the one hand, he really wants to see his friends; on the other hand, from what he's seen in the information pamphlet...things, them being here would be a bad thing...

He asks anyway.]

... Also - has anyone named Ron Weasley or Hermione Granger arrived here?
[Video | Voice | Action maybe?]
08 November 2010 at 09:15 pm
[Adrianna felt completely odd when she woke up in her room at the shelter: it seemed like she slept for months or longer. Also, she couldn't understand why her body was slightly in pain. Her head was a mess, physically and mentally, placing a hand on her forehead and noticing a big, healed bruise which it hurt a lot. Now, that was something scary: someone did this to her while sleeping, and the only thought made her feel very, very upset. Ade turned on her communicator, not so happy about this.]


[Her angry face was evident and her tone voice sounded as a reproach, but she obviously didn't care about it.]

Okay... Who was the fucking jerk who did this to my forehead while I was sleeping!?
31 May 2010 at 06:34 pm
[he had some tea when he got back to the shelter, scattered and disappointed and exhausted and really-- really just somewhere between furious and miserable. ...but he feels better. upbeat, even. and a little ADD]

[filtered //FROM// noahkin]
Good morning, everyone! I have an announcement to make, it's -- kind of a sensitive topic. I have to ask everyone who knows Adam to avoid him if possible. Or if you don't know him, you should still avoid him. He, ah-- may be dangerous, so. Be careful.

Report it to me-- Wait, not me. The defense force, they'll know what to do. They'll tell me. Right.

[filtered //TO// the black order+the defense force]
I don't -- I don't know how to say this. There's really no-- no good way. [he snickers a little, actually] Adam-- is the Millennium Earl. Last night he made an akuma of Tatewaki Kunou and attacked Akane -- I destroyed the akuma, but -- he's out there, so.

Ah, so don't talk to Adam, I guess-- Or the Noah-- We really need to do something, the Exorcists anyway, I don't really think it would be a good idea for everyone else, we should all just, you know, relax...

[after a fuzzy beat, a little more serious.] I'm so sorry Miranda.

[The video shows someone sleeping, a young brunette woman... sitting on the grass, leaning on a tree. She awakens slowly, looking at the grass with blurry eyes at first, but then her head gazes up to the sky. It seemed like the sunlight was hurting her eyes, but she was trying to focus on the place around her. Suddenly, her light blue eyes widen and holds her head with both hands, making a pained expression and whining a little.

Her looks changed a little; very long and straight hair, but still the same features, maybe a bit aged but nothing completely different. She stands up, holding herself with one hand to the tree, still looking at the place which seemed to be a park and walking carefully so she couldn't fall off. Many memories were passing through her mind, totally confusing... the only thing she could mumble was something she wanted to surpress but failed at the attempt to do so.]

... Ugh... This is... crappy...

[ooc: Sup Marina! Miss her much?]
[Anonymous Note]
15 May 2010 at 11:23 pm
[Len was unsure about doing this, but it had been something he has been wondering for a while already, so he wanted to know what others think about that, so he leaves a note that says...]

If you were given the chance to go back home, knowing that you would forget everything and everyone you knew from here... Would you still go?

[Near this note, they are some papers and pens. He's very curious about this...]
