Lookie lookie, Edward got a trick and a treat!

[The video cuts on to show an older Edward, that is now quite clearly female. There is also the robotic corgi that looks to be done at the edge of the screen in addition to a mountain of what looks like debris and junk.]

Zwo is almost complete~ Edward has to get a few more parts though.

[Not that she needs it from the way that the child woman is bouncing around, but she opens another piece of candy and eats the chocolate before adding the wrapper to a stack and doing a handstand.]

What do you think Zwo, shouild we go out again and get more candy?

[ It wasn't his usual morning for taking breakfast in the shelter, but the meteor last night had distracted him. It had been worth it though. Sliding into a seat at the shelter, Hei glances idly at the counter and the bowl of candy resting on top. ]

Halloween again?

[ He idly pulls a piece of candy out of the bowl while he waits for the bot to finish his order for half a dozen omelets. It's a gradual change though, as he slowly shrinks down in size, gaining speed as Hei continues to pick at the bowl of candy. And then his network device falls and Hei almost looses his balance on the stool.

It's when he picks up his device however, that his now clumsy fingers manage to press the video button, opening up a channel for everyone to see. Please don't mind Hei's slight disarray. His shirt is nearly big enough to cover all of him now.

How awkward.

Clearing his throat, Hei stares down at the activated video screen and glances back up to the counter now somehow looking far out of his reach. ]

Something's wrong here.

[ understatement ]

((ooc: Hei's only affected by the age down curse! Please assume that Hei looks about ten years old from here on out /o/ ))

[As the feed switches on, you can see the top of what looks like a hat, over a head of red hair. Along with that, Yuta has a big grin on his face for the network. This goofy-looking kid is on a swing in the playground and has stopped swinging for this.]

Hey guys! Since Halloween's coming, I was thinking of dressing up, but I can't pick. [no, of course its not for candy] Maybe somebody could give me an idea or help me choose? [can you resist this face?] By the way, who else is dressing up?

The Shelter rooms need better locks. [ He says with a sigh. This morning is about par for the kind of weirdness he expects. At least this time it wasn't a tiny red dragon... ]

Look, is anyone going to be taking over that English class? I keep going on the days it's in session and no one shows or leaves any notes, so something's obviously up.

I figured I might as well brush up while I'm here, in case I ever get caught without my communicator again.

[The feed shows the small red-headed Yuta. He's on his way to the Convenience store in Sector Five to find a few supplies. He takes note of the places around, he might visit. For now, focus on the task at hand.]

By the way, has anyone here played any sports?

[Private to Inara]
Inara-neechan, when you're not busy do you think you could come help me plan out some things to get to settle in?

[At first, the only thing that appears on the screen is a vibrant blue parrot and the arm it's perched on in front of the pet cafe. It flaps around a bit and makes some noise, but for a few minutes that's all there is; no speaking or human face and the only thing that indicates there might be a person is that small glimpse of arm at the bottom of the screen.

And then that few minutes is up and the person behind the bird moves the camera to reveal Tamaki Suoh, self-proclaimed king of the Host Club. He's smiling, of course, and is just generally overflowing with excitement.]

Look! Look everyone! Isn't he beautiful? I hadn't expected to walk out with a pet when I went to the pet shop today, but when I saw him I simply couldn't just leave him there! Ah, I wonder what I should name him... His name must be as majestic and beautiful as he is... Perhaps Kyouya will have some suggestion on what his name should be. Or if anyone else has an idea I would love to hear it! I'm sure they're all wonderful ideas!

I can't wait to bring him everywhere with me! I'd been so alone without Antoinette it's a wonder that I had survived so long without a pet until now. [Becomes slightly serious here, but not very serious.] I suppose I'll have to go to the library to find books about taking care of parrots. Antoinette was a dog so taking care of this little guy won't be the same as taking care of her and I won't have the servants to help me... No matter, I'm sure the others would be more than happy to assist me!

Ah, this is marvelous! I'm so excited to have pet here now! Pets make everything so much better! You can speak to them and play with them and they'll never complain or ignore you! [This would probably the the perfect place for anyone to tune Tamaki out if that hasn't been done already. At this point he's just going to be making unintelligible noises for no other reason than a lack of words to express his excitement.]

Upon entering Sector 4, the very large tent that stands framed by the beach is quickly noticeable. Closer, one can see colors dancing upon the white sheets, like opalesque spires under the moving onyx sky. As you enter one of the wings of the tents, grass give way to wooden flooring, and chains of white blossoms and gold ribbons line the sides. The open dance floor in the center bids one to look up to whimsical white-gold lamps, balls of light dancing in seas of violet, blue, green and pink organza. The fabrics fall down pillars adorned with leaves and flowers. Tables set in white and gold with jewel toned flowers sit at the four wings surrounding the dance floor.

... but it is far too early to take a seat. Smile and greet your fellow attendee, take the hand of a friend, and dance to the music.

Welcome to Marina Academy's First Promenade!

There are large tables with finger foods and punch (not spiked -- save it for the after-party!), and very little space near the walls (sorry, wallflowers! You won't get away so easily. )  After a large number of people are gathered together, Jeanne stands up on the small stage set to the side of the dance floor and taps on the microphone to get everyone's attention...

+ Info post / thread index (please read this first!)
+ Jeanne's greeting speech!
+ Prom King and Queen announcement. (Spoiler: It's Euphie and Kanda.)

[ A short while before the prom is scheduled to get underway, Minako and Orihime take up their posts: lurking at the main avenue into the prom, looking for their victims! The two girls are hanging around outside, looking for solo arrivals and third wheels that they can put together into couples for the big event! ]

[ If you wander too near them, you might hear them calling out to you -- or find them grabbing your arm -- or notice them dragging someone else over to you with big smiles on their faces. ]

((ooc: In this post, introduce yourself to your designated date for the evening! Here is the list of partners, and you can direct questions there!

It would be great if you put your names in the subject of the first comment so that your partner recognizes you. ♥ There is also an optional thread for Minako or Orihime or both to wrangle you~! You can handwave it if you prefer. Please limit threads here to the actual matchmaking, not just socializing: Minako and Orihime will also be at the prom for your friendly chatting needs.))

[He's been keeping to himself ever since the 4th wall incident, but today is an exception. The entire dome will be offered a simple question.] What would you do if you were told the one thing you wanted most in life was unobtainable? What would you do to accomplish that goal? Would you be willing to give up everything?


[He's searching for them now. Kitty, Kisame--and his brother, too. He hasn't seen or heard from the shark-like nin for quite some time now. Could he have vanished like the others? Regardless, the young Uchiha is going to get some answers, no matter what it takes. First things first. He'll check the usual places that he's seen Kitty hanging around. She'll be easier to confront. The fact that he's stalling like a coward makes his insides twist, but he shoves down those traitorous thoughts for now. He'll get to Itachi, all in due time.]

[Action: Open – Sector 2 Library]

[If you're in the library, #10032 has found herself a table in the corner and somehow amassed a pile of gaudy teen magazines around her. Yes, teen magazines – those pop culture-laden pieces of paper directed toward the raging hormones of the adolescent. She was busy talking to some newcomers yesterday and didn't really get a chance to listen/join in on anyone's prom talks, so she decided to take the task upon herself to find something out at the library.

Naturally, most of the magazines strewn about are open to articles on just about anything one would want to know about prom – how to get a date, what to wear, how to initiate the perfect post-prom makeout session- ...yeah. Stuff like that.

Anyway, she's flipping through yet another one right now, reading whatever she happened to find.]

[Audio: Filtered to Touma Kamijou]

[So that's why everyone kept talking about asking people and going with others to prom yesterday. And here she thought it was just people preferring to travel in groups.]

'Touma Kamijou.' MISAKA would like to ask something.

[[ooc: A bit of a placeholder -- tags might not come until tomorrow, but I'll get to them don't worry!]]

[Who has two thumbs and feels like playing nice? THIS GUYYYYY!]

It has occurred to me that, while I was MIA, Tono and Kyouya-senpai — Daddy and Mommy respectively — have been hard at work, getting us new Host Club members. That being said, it means I haven't properly met any of you. Shouldn't Mommy and Daddy's children all know each other?


I'm Hikaru Hitachiin, Host Club veteran. If Tono's pissing you off, and Kyouya-senpai is being scary, there's always the Hitachiin brothers and Mori-senpai! Fufufu~.

[ oh, hello, Marina. someone looks like she's just waking up -- her hair is just tousled enough and the button-down shirt is just unbuttoned enough that this video may or may not have been staged. either way, she yawns and stretches and rubs her eyes, and then gives the camera a little smirk. ]

I hear there's a dance-thing tonight. Anyone out there not have a date yet?

[ and here's another yawn -- more genuine this time ]

And who do I talk to about working at that bar? The one over in sector five?

[It's late at night, which is exactly what Sentience wanted before making a post like this.]

The Engineers do not take anything seriously. That's simply the way they are; they have a tendency -- not a personal tendency, but a racial tendency, wired into their brain functioning -- to laugh at painful or difficult topics, to treat them lightly.

But even taking cultural differences into account, it is... cruel, isn't it? To take out their boredom on the people here. This is supposed to be a place where criminals can live out their sentences in peace. Everyone here is a person, not... a toy.

[Sentience still seems troubled about the fourth wall.]

[see vanessa.

see vanessa whip up a black book for the whole prison to see, scowling.]

"There were three things I was absolutely sure about. Firstly, Eduardo was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him that wanted my blood really badly. And last of all, I was madly, deeply in love with him."

[someone made the mistake of reading the book summary on the back]

What is this trash? Are there people who actually read this? [ugh, it's demeaning even to touch this damn thing] I sincerely hope the rest of this library isn't filled with filth like this.

[because if it is she is storming the hell out of there and going back to her room. B(]

[ The Engineer's prank had been distracting and admittedly overwhelming, and thus Dance Classes were not held as planned. However, there were things to prepare for, and having a word with his twin during this time is quite apt. ]

[ Open ]
[ After dancing, Ribbons decides to take a seat on the bleachers of the Open Field, a sealed container of apple slices atop his lap, and absently watching those who may be there for a game or a jog or whatever else.

He thinks about the people who had come from home, like ghosts from the past coming to haunt him. Is this how the path to repentance looks like? ]

[ Voice/Private to Euphie ]
[ It has been a while since they last spoke -- he barely remembers anymore -- but now that they will be working together for the upcoming Promenade, he opens a call. ]

Good day to you, Euphie. Do you have a few moments to spare?

(( OOC: A wild Ribbons appears! Come snap him out of his reverie? :3c This post can also be for any network calls in the case anyone needs to reach him. ))

[Before he heads out for the library, Atsuro switch his communicator on for a video feed, showing him smiling at the screen.]

Hey, who do I talk to about enrolling into classes?

[After that, he'll be at the library, working hard on the mathematical problems Naoya mailed to him. Atsuro's sitting at one of the tables with a pencil, eraser, papers and a calculator. There's some equations and numbers written on the papers, and he looks very focused on solving them.

It'd be easy for people to sneak up on him like this.]

[ Marina, you are being treated to the face of this incredibly handsome dwarf. look at those sparkling eyes, full of strong emotion. look at that noble brow, gentled just perfectly by that smart widow's peak. that wonderful, expressive mouth...

which is currently expressing a frown. ]
Prison, hm? Well, it's not the first time, though I prefer not to make a habit of it. Given my surroundings, I will wager Acumen is not employed by the Chantry or the City Guard. It's like a madman's tale; like something I, myself, would spin over a pint bought by someone else's coin.

However, my good audience, I have a question of the utmost importance.

[ his expression goes cold. ] Who kidnapped Bianca?

[ a beat, and then he smiles. ] Answer truly, and we can all be friends.

[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?

[ The word is said with a tone of wariness and humor. Chuckles. There were far worse fates a mechanic-engineer working for a "terrorist organization" can meet. ]

A "life sentence." I don't think you'd get much out of me at this point, even if I still am bursting with youthful energy.

So! Any recommendations on how to pass the time?
