[Video//Action | Open] BANQUET MINGLE GO!
20 December 2011 at 12:16 pm
Good morning, Marina! [Have a very smiley pink haired girl on your video feed!] For anyone I haven’t met, I’m Lacus Clyne and I’m very glad to meet you.

It seems as though we’re all going to be in the shelter today, so we should make the best of things. I was thinking that we should get together and have a big winter banquet! Anyone who wants to help cook should please feel free to come to the kitchens and assist, and if not you should still come and enjoy the food with us.

Dinner will be served at 5 in the main cafeteria, and after that maybe we could have fun playing games and watching movies together. I hope everyone has a good day, and I hope to see everyone at the feast!

[A few minutes later]

I just learned that today is also Ritsuka’s birthday! To celebrate there will be a cake and some special desserts and decorations. [as many decorations as they can find without access to the store.] Everyone please, stop by to wish him a happy birthday!

((OOC Notes: Mingle post, open to all! Reply to Lacus by [video] or there are several action options: [cooking] any time before 5pm ICly, [dinner] a huge buffet of almost anything you could want, or [after dinner] for card games, board games, and movies throughout the cafeteria and nearby common rooms! Your character is in no way obligated to be at all of these, but they could be if you want~

Also! A link to Ritsuka’s birthday party will be added once it goes up. There will be cake and lots of special desserts and pretty decorations in one area of the cafeteria.

If anyone wants to intentionally or unintentionally sabotage the food, please contact me OOCly before you do so. Thanks and ENJOY!))

[Incubator hadn't been made aware of this place before, so he decides to approach the situation with caution. Instead of joining the chorus on the communicator, the small fuzzy creature listened for a while as he examined his welcome basket. Then he paused, trying to psychically search for local magical girls, only to find that his telepathy was greatly limited. It was enough to make a decision or two about his immediate predicament, even if he would have to perform more tests too discern the extent of his new limitations.]

[Eventually, he abandons his basket on the walkway and climbs the nearest tall building with a set of deft jumps. He contorts his body so his paw can reach the communicator. Time for the first test--who can hear him?]


[QB speaks with a rather cute and upbeat voice, sounding almost like it might belong to a child--an effect ruined by his mature word choices. He doesn't address anyone in particular; he appears to be thinking out loud.] Of course there hasn't been a mistake. When every action is a crime, every person is a criminal.

This prison appears to be the result of an advanced culture lacking the ability to consider moral relativism. None of you should feel so alarmed by the accusations. What may have been acceptable on your world doesn't match the legal acceptability of this advanced artificial intelligence.

Committing crimes does not automatically make you a "bad person" by your standards, because your standards were never considered or applied to begin with.

[New people were arriving today. But Marie wasn't watching for them this time. There would be time for that later. She hadn't forgotten. And she didn't want to neglect them but... something had been bothering her for a few days.

So instead, she could be found in the library, acting a bit strangely. Strangely because she's never done this before. It's not clear at first glance, what it is, but there are a number of books sitting at her side. She's reading one of them, and looks pretty focused.

But then, it draws a reaction from her. A soft, kind of giddy smile as she reads through the text.]

ooc: Marie is currently going through a series of books, interested in relationships and the emotion known as love. She's trying to keep a low profile but please feel free to pester her and ask what this is all about.

[Here's that line-faced guy again, standing very rigidly with his hands behind his back. He clears his throat quietly.]

Good morning. I have a question directed at everyone here, if you would please hear me out.

Cut for newbie determination to get out )

[He reaches to end the video, at which point he accidentally (?) turns in a way that you get a very brief glimpse of his left arm, and-- is that a trick of the light, or is his fist made of stone?]

[[OOC: Same thing as last time: he looks human, should feel completely human... but if your character still notices something is off, please don't call him out on it in public? And his next post will be as Puck, I swear. And if anyone wants to continue any old threads, go right ahead!]]

[Anyone who walks into the shelter kitchen today will be smacked in the nose by the smell of popcorn. Gino has taken over the place with the stuff and there are at least fifteen bowls at his feet, already filled to the top - and there's more popping in the microwave! Gino looks not in the least bothered by the strong smell, but feel free to ask him what he is even up to.]

Man, Halloween was something else wasn't it? Makes me wonder how everyone celebrates Christmas here. It can't be as crazy as the events Milly used to throw back in Ashford. Probably. Maybe.

Right, anyway. I've got a serious question for you Marina. So think hard about it okay? [we pause for dramatic emphasis]

Red or green?

[context what context!]

[Snow is cold, which means its time to bundle up. Yuta's at the clothing store in Sector Five, wearing a winter hat and scanning shelves and aisles for gloves and scarves too. Hopefully he could keep warm to avoid freezing his fingers. He switches on the video feed and blinks curiously before speaking.]

I was wondering, who's the youngest in Marina? I want to play in the snow but I don't think the adults will want to.

[Amy is looking directly at the communicator, face marked by a strange combination of concern and irritation.]

“Rory, River..."

[There is a slight pause, uncertain if it’s right to try to contact him given all the hassle he just went through to get a lower profile.]

“… Doctor – if anyone can hear this, please tell me what the hell is going on. This isn’t funny. Parental negligence!?"

[Amy is visibly seething.]

“This Acumen needs to get its facts straight. I won’t lie and say I’m innocent of all charges, but don’t you ever dare suggest that I willingly allowed that to happen. And how does it know all this stuff to begin with? Please don’t let this be another one of your damn personifications or whatever again, Doctor.”

[ oh hai, Marina. guess who ate some of those strawberry gummies? yeeeeep.

his expression is so very clinical, young brown eyes peering into the communicator. he murmurs ]

Yes, that would be expected.

[ he shifts the communicator and the video swings around; he's now looking at the device upside-down, pressing buttons curiously. private flickers briefly on screen, then off again. he turns the communicator back around again and utters ]


[ his voice is almost monotone, and he does not smile. ]

((ooc: Ahhhh so late!! But it's still "Halloween". :D So, come poke tiny Jade. He also has amnesia, so. This is Jade as an actual child. And if you've spoken to him before, his eyes are normally red.))

[ This holiday is pretty much exactly what Jeanne needed to take her mind off of what was going on with Saya. Well, the holiday, and the massive amounts of candy it brought along!

She's in the clothing store, trying on various things. First a witch's ensemble, which she couldn't stand the hat of. Then a sailor's uniform, but it was too baggy. Finally, she slips on a black one-piece "bunny girl" top over tinted stockings and admires herself in the mirror.

Hmm. Maybe that's a bit too much of her figure. She can only think of what Ribbons might think...

It's when she pauses in front the mirror again, she gets a certain glint in her eye. No. You know what? Look sexy! You deserve it. You can do that much, right? All she needs are some long gloves to cover the bruises on her arms as well as the stockings did, and she'll be good to go! ]

Right! [ She shouts, at no one in particular. Besides, the ears and fluffy tail look cute. They even twitch! ]



[ Jeanne did not put those on, yet. She reaches up and tugs at the end of the floppy white ear and damn near shrieks when she realizes that she could feel that!

This is pretty much her exact reaction. ]
...oh no...

[The video starts with a small shudder from the Blue alien. He's wandering around outside.] So uh... what is this Halloween everyone keeps talking about?

Costumes, candy, weird decorations... [He's toying with some fake webbing that's pulled across a window and quirking a brow.] Are these supposed to be scary?

[A bit before "sunset," a softly smiling Lacus appears in the video.]

Good evening, Marina. Thanks to an inmate request, tonight we are going to observe a lovely meteor shower in the night sky using the star projector. I have arranged viewing areas on the beach with some light refreshments. However, you should be able to see the meteors from anywhere in the dome.

If anyone would like to see star patterns or other sky-scenes from their own worlds, please don't hesitate to contact me. If you have photos or descriptions I can make a program for the projector quite easily.

I hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

And about a half-hour after dark... )

This is not amusing!

[Azula could almost break the communicator with the amount of manhandling she's doing to it out of sheer frustration. She's pissed and she has to know a few answers.

She looks completely out of breath - like she's been training all day. Which, to be honest, she has, but even that doesn't usually tucker her out like this.]

Anyone will do-- anyone useful. If Acumen is able to bring us here with little to no effort, I assume Acumen also possesses other capabilities. Those restraints, for one, must be of his own invention.

And now that I have been released- my bending has been more or less returned to me.


There is a slight problem. And anyone who may also have experienced problems with-- powers may come forward. I'm sure it has been such a frustrating experience for you, and I understand completely.

[It's been another busy day, from breakfast on through his chores, but now he's back in his room and left alone with his thoughts about how everything has gone wrong back home. Anyone else might seek out someone to talk to about it, but Moji is not anyone else, and that's the last thing he wants. Instead, he picks a neutral topic to engage people. He chooses voice to hide the obvious bags under his eyes, hoping to avoid questions about his well-being.]

I'm curious about the passage of time here. I've heard a few people say it seems to move more slowly here than in their home world, and I wondered about your theories on that. Is it that time really does move differently on this world, or just a side effect of being taken from our daily lives and responsibilties and having so much more time on our hands?

We may never know the truth, of course, but it's interesting to think about.

[The video comes on to show the face of a young girl. Her face is calm but her disheveled hair and the spots of dried blood on her forehead are rather conspicuous.]

Thank you for the pamphlet.

[There's a noticeable pause here, and when she speaks again her voice is a little less controlled. A bit heavier.]

Is Madoka Kaname within the facility?

[Because she has to try.]

[ This voice is both annoyed and confident. She's not pleased to be here, but she's not going to let anyone know that she's a little uncertain too. ] I am so tired of being kidnapped. I mean, at least these people are better at it than the last ones, but this whole thing is just sad. I can't believe I've been arrested again. I didn't even feel them coming. [ There's a pause and then she repeats it to herself again, as if disbelieving. ] Didn't feel a thing...

Plus, I want to know who came up with these charges. So I put a few holes in the wall and ran away from people who tried to lock me up. No one mentioned that I helped save the world too? Doesn't that count in my favor? Maybe Katara would like this underwater thing, but I'm not buying it. [ She's a bit sulky, don't mind her. There's another hesitation, because she's letting her irritation get away with her, and finally she sighs and makes herself sound more cheerful, more normal. ]

At least the food in the basket was good. What kind of prison has a welcome committee?

This one, I guess. So, tell me, strangers, what are you in for?
03 October 2011 at 07:14 pm
[A voice comes on to the feed, quiet and a bit shaky.]
Um, is this really a prison?

It's...nothing like the prisons I've seen pictures of back home. Prisons are supposed to have cells, and metal bars, and everyone...wears...jumpsuits.

[She gives a little, quivery sigh.]

If you've really sent a double in my place, I really hope she does a good job.

I was kind of in the middle of saving...a whole lot of people. Maybe everyone in the world.

[She quietly adds, mostly to herself:] Even then, on my birthday?

  • To Everyone: an invitation from Kohran Li.

[Today's route is largely dedicated to the important duty of spreading word about Kohran's talent show! She used it as a chance to show a volunteer or two how to sort for these days, and decided to send Ribbons with a hearty stack of them, since he clearly needs the work.]

[Either of them can be found walking the route today! Alas, PM could not convince Ribbons to wear the uniform miniskirt.]

{OOC: Since, well, after she finds Maes and Maes finds her, they'll be inseperable, I'm timelining this to before his post so she hasn't heard it, yet. It makes things neater.}

[Wandering around near the beach and the neighboring streets, Elysia has managed to get herself some colored chalk, and she's leaving chalk drawing everywhere. Some are badly mangled looking alchemy circles. Some are odd drawings that look roughly like a large set of armor. There are a few that look like a short blond kid with a braid. This one looks like a man with glasses. There's a lady over there. They'll be all around the beach area, and eventually, you might find the source scraping away with the chalk as she makes a new drawing. She's humming to herself rather pleasantly.]

[The voice clicks on to the sound of a young man who isn't sure what he's doing.] This is insane--! I don't even know what this thing is, let alone how to use it.

[Another voice appears! ...Sounds.] No, no, you're not doing it right. You've got to hit the buttons again. [Sokka reaches over, pressing the buttons randomly. Let there be video! And then private and then not private and then voice and then video again!]

Wait, hold on. --I think it's working now. [It actually started working some time ago, as viewers can probably tell.] Uh. Hi... I guess. I mean, if you can hear this.

Tell them we aren't supposed to be here!

I was going to!

[Sokka is peeking back and forth around Zuko's shoulders trying to get a better look at his screen while ignoring his own.]

I had plans! Suki is going to kiiiiill me. [He clears his throat and stands up straighter so part of his head is out of frame.] I mean, not that she'd do that. She's pretty into the Sokka-man. [Heh. Sokka-man. He just came up with that. It sounds manly.]

[Ugh, just. Angry and impatient gesturing.] Would you stop talking about your girlfriend and focus on what's important here? [Good thing they've got experience in breaking out of prisons together.]

Yeah, yeah, I was getting to it! [He gives the screen a very serious look.] Is there food?

(OOC: Joint post for Sokka and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Everyone is welcome. Network responses will be answered separately by either or both of them. Action will be threeway style. If you know what I mean~)

[ there is a small green lizard current on one of the sidewalks next to the park. he is really not sure how he got there, considering last he remembered, he was on rapunzel's shoulder as they crawled their way out of the pub.

he's kind of scared, not gonna lie, and really he just wants to go hooooome. he's so alarmed and out of place he's not even bothering to camouflage himself.

so please, pay attention where you walk and try not to step on the small green thing? ]
