[Moji feels restless. He's not claustrophobic, nor does he mind crowds, but an enclosed space does tend to pinch after awhile when it's the only option. So in the absence of anything else to do, he's walking Mochi up and down the hallways of the shelter, harnessed and leashed and garnering all kinds of stares and the occasional petting. For Mochi, of course.]

[ video; filtered from Tieria ]

Good day. This is just a small request and reminder...

Mew! Mew!

No, Spot... [ ahh, getting batted by a tiny kitty who wants to play ;A; ] —Wait. [ He closes his eyes, raising an open hand gently as if to gesture, "PAUSE, PAUSE" to his little friend there. (He's sorry, Spot. ;; He can't play now.) Though, poor Setsuna looks tired. What has he been doing until now? ]

Today is Tieria Erde's birthday. [ And raising a photograph of his pretty best friend— ] If you know him, please send him a wish. [ ... especially you, C.B. people. :'D ]

Mew! Mew~ Mew~ [ ffff ]

[ Though, Setsuna shortly comes up with an idea, and folds open his milk carton. Upon catching the sweet scent of milk, Spot walks over to it and starts drinking it contentedly. Afterwards, the kitty happily jumps unto Setsuna's head, and just kind of nests there! ... Well, at least he's relaxed now. ]

[ action ]

[ Setsuna was secretly busy ever since last night, preparing everything that he needed for this evening's dinner. While Tieria is out, he does the final arrangements, running about back and forth all around their apartment.

Checking on the food, doing a little extra cleaning... And all this time, Spot remains nested on his head. Anyway, he didn't forget anything, right? ]

[ ooc | Action is closed to Tieria and Moji. But! If your character wishes to personally drop by at their apartment, they can do so. (Just in case anyone wants to talk to Tieria to wish him happy birthday/give him a present/whatever.) No need for permission, just indicate so. ♥ Setsuna might even invite them to stay for the birthday dinner.

edit; Tieria mun said that Tieria will now be answering birthday greetings or such in this post. Feel free to call him here! All calls meant for Setsuna are automatically filtered from Tieria, still. But if it's directed at Tieria, then Tieria will answer. c: ]

[ It was really very generous of Duo to have let her crash over at his place for the day. She had made sure to set her things aside the night before in the Shelter so the bots won't throw things out accidentally, and that it would be more presentable than the last time he had seen her place.

Scarf wound securely around her neck, red coat secure, wool hat on her head and overnight bag slung over a shoulder, she made her way around for a bit of shopping first -- she recalled that Duo was a late riser so she decided to fetch a few things they can eat together. ]

----- [ Closed to Duo ] -----

[ Later in the morning, in the hopes that her approximation is more or less correct, she'll be at Duo's doorstep now with shopping cradled in an arm. Here's to hoping he's awake now...

Knock knock knock! ]

Good evening, citizens of Marina! We do hope you're enjoying the cold just as much as we are! Since we know you likely don't have anything better to do, why don't you come on down to the Fight Club? Why, we have hot cocoa and other delightful, tasty treats for you while we get this show on the road! The fights will be starting within the hour, so come on down and get the good seats while they're available! [They laugh before they cut the feed.]

((OOC: Fight Club, round 2! Please wait until Kathrine (Ava-mun) posts up the fight threads + the mingling thread before posting!))

Hello~! Say hi, Dorian! [ A shot of an unenthused white kitten cleaning itself, instead of saying Hello. ] Dorian, that's rude...

Anyhow, first of all~! Neil, your little coat is ready. I hope it fits him. I couldn't find a ball that was the same size, so it was hard to guess...

Secondly, does anyone know if Acu celebrates Christmas? Orihime-chan and I were thinking it would be fun to have a Christmas party. And earlier I was thinking about New Year's, too... I thought it'd be a fun idea. [ A thoughtful pause... Survey time? ]

If you could, what would you guys ask Santa for this year~?

private to Hikaru ▶

Hi, Hikaru~! I hate to be a nuisance, but Miwako was wondering if she could stay with you tomorrow while the shelter is being cleaned? I think you said you had your own house... I don't think I know anyone else who does. We could play ping-pong, if you'd like~
[voice | open]

So tomorrow Acumen is planning to begin cleaning. It seems a little early, but then again, I suppose not everyone does their annual cleaning before New Year's. Speaking of which, is New Year's observed in Marina? It's an important occasion back home. [Ukitake breaks off to cover a short series of coughs before continuing.]

In any case, it seems the next few days will be quite busy. What provisions have people made for them?

[ooc: Ukitake's going to be quite ill after the move to the Shelter on Day 145, so ICly, he's been feeling under the weather off-and-on since Day 141. I'll be commenting on the Monday meme week-after-next to finalize plans since I have the healers I need, but there's still room for one of Ukitake's friends to call for them (if anyone is interested in doing that) since Ukitake won't be able to do so.

And again, tons of thanks for the gift of paid time. It's so awesome and really sweet.]

[Sector 5 sees a lot of people over the course of a day. Many live there in houses or apartment complexes; many come there to shop for food or clothing; many come there to relax and have a meal; some even come for the entertainments offered by the bowling alley, the ice rink, or the Devil's Compass.]

[Everyone who might have passed through Sector 5 today is invited to thread out a chance encounter here, or a date, or a gathering of friends. Just tell everyone where your character is and what they're doing, and go!]

This is new. [ He sighs. ] I think the bots do enough cleaning on a daily basis. They're better than the automated trash robots back in Academy City, and things were always clean there, too.

[ Touma pauses there to mull something over. ] I guess now's as good a time as any to scope out a new place to move into... even if I can't give up the room, yet.

Hello. [She didn't sleep much last night. The announcement could wait, but she doesn't think it's going to get easier, so sue pushes ahead. She wants to be strong for his sake. To make him proud of the way she's handling his business in his absence and so that Suzaku and Nunnally won't have to worry about her too. She can be there for them instead.]

I regret to tell you all Lelouch vi Britannia has left Marina.

I will be taking over all his administrative duties at the school. Literature and Philosophy classes will be put on hold until a replacement can be found. If anyone is interested in teaching one or both classes or taking up teaching cooking, art or any other subjects we don't currently offer, please contact me. Thank you for your time.

Life is not like you see in movies. It's not a matter of happily ever afters and things working out perfectly in the end, and in school, they don't even teach you the things you really need to know about life.

I think that's what parents are for, supposedly.

[Sometimes when things seem to be going horribly, he can sit down and figure things out.

But this... this has been such a huge struggle for him, and has made him spend most of his day thinking and unable to focus on anything else.]

Schools don't teach you what you're supposed to do when you love two things, but can only save one, just like they don't teach you what you're supposed to do when two people love one thing, and only one can have the thing. They don't really teach you how to treat other people, and they don't teach you exactly what you should know about the real world.

Pisses me off.

[Unlike yesterday, the house today is lovely, a fit atmosphere for a tea party~ The doors are wide open and anyone who wanders won't be pushed out. For now. All of the rooms are free for perusal, except two, and the living room is home to a long table, fitted with a tablecloth, as well as a platter of cakes. The room is helpfully lit up by the many floating candles hovering in the air. Just don't go touching them or you'll accidentally cut yourself~]

[ooc: Road will be mingling with everyone, and there will be a tag for your character to tag her! Sorry for the late! anyone can tag! even the people who didn't respond to Road's invitation post! /o/ get those ac threads ENJOY]

[His selfishness told him to keep it to himself - it was more important to keep his secrets than to protect others - but eventually his good nature won out. This has to be done.]

Hello, I'd like to speak to someone from the Defense Force. Particularly if there's anyone who keeps any sort of record of the more dangerous people here. Thanks.

[He keeps his voice level and businesslike, and uses voice rather than video, in the hopes of keeping away acquaintances who might assume the worst. Did it work?]

  • Kunihiko Moji: a letter from Kohran Li.
  • Jeanne Francaix: a letter from Hikaru Hitachiin.

[PM steps out into the snow for the day's route, clothed well against the cold.]

[Although she doesn't exactly look different, the former mendicant certainly carries herself differently. She stands taller thanks to the disappearance of her habitual slouch, and she looks markedly wiser and calmer as she takes in the sights of the prison with different eyes. Still, despite the change in demeanor, the mail is going to get where it needs to go in as much a timely fashion as ever.

[He's out alone, without any real destination - just walking, listening to the rhythmic crunch of his boots in the snow and trying to work through his tangled thoughts. He hasn't been sure of anything since he got here, and it's been driving him insane.]

thinky thinky. )

[He veers into the park and toward the memorial gardens, approaching Nakarai's little tree and staring down at the plaque with dry amusement. She had her priorities straight, he thinks - she discovered that she killed billions of people and immediately sought atonement for that act. He's still too wrapped up in his own problems to face the bigger issues of the game. When will it hit him, he wonders?]

[Dance Class | Athletic Center, forward-dated to 3-4pm]

[ While the previous classes since Ribbons' return had served to polish the waltz and give the students more ways as to how to embellish their routines, it was time to introduce a different kind of dance; still ballroom, but something livelier and something that can be a passe-partout with more upbeat tunes: the Swing.

The instructors are early, and whoever passes by will hear a jazzy tune -- warm for the otherwise cold weather -- and will see them reviewing their routine; something that hey did not do for the waltz. Students will be expected, and newcomers will be very welcomed. Curious eyes will be seen and might just be pulled in because the rhythm is going to get you~ ]

(( OOC: This one's long overdue, so tag in (before, after, during), dance among yourselves or have Hiling and/or Ribbons bother you X3;; ))

[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?

[It's one thing very few people realise about him, that Lind keeps tabs on certain people. So the instant he notices two very specific people aren't home, he makes a round of the dome.

Not too long later he sighs and stops, already having tried to contact Kaito via the network and a private post. No luck. Akito won't be happy about this...]

If anyone's looking for Kaito or Gazelle, don't bother. Neither of them seem to be here anymore. [He sounds a little tired. Lind's had enough of people appearing and vanishing]

[The view from the communicator shows a dimly lit bedroom, as far as anyone can tell. The camera seems to be angled toward the foot of a futon, one buried beneath several layers of thick blankets. The sole source of light appears to be a window against one wall. A harsh cough interrupts the quiet of the room. The communicator must be resting on the futon, because it starts shaking in time with the coughs. It's hard to tell if the occupant of the room meant to begin a transmission and was forced to abandon it because of the coughing fit, or if he somehow struck the communicator during an earlier fit and turned it on. A curtain of white hair swings forward, obscuring the camera's view as the coughing becomes worse.]

[At first, it's not a very impressive broadcast - at least it's quiet, though, so no one will be woken up. The camera shakes and jiggles as though being held loosely in a hand, then finally settles on a view of a rather plain shelter room. Someone has obviously forgotten to turn off the video function after talking to somebody, then taken their communicator off and set it aside.

So, an empty, undecorated shelter room - or is it empty? No, after a moment, a rabbit with mottled fur hops into frame. He stands up on his haunches and sniffs the air; then, for those who have stuck around this long, the show really begins.

He starts leaping into the air and twisting in half-circles, for no apparent reason other than an excess of either happiness or energy. Every now and then he'll stop to sniff at something or dig in the rug, but then he starts jumping again, always turning sharply in the air before landing.

Until - ah! Now he's noticed the communicator. He hops up onto the bed, and the screen is immediately full of twitching rabbit nose. Someone's headset is going to get very badly chewed if he doesn't return soon.]
