[Red doesn't really think about using filters, so everyone gets to see him sheepishly waving at the screen as he makes his call.]

Um, Ms. Jennifer...? [He looks around, and the video shows a lovely view of the middle of the park.] I think I got lost again...

[His head hurts.

The mess of memories is confusing. One second he's remembering yesterday as it really was. The next, he's remembering things that don't make sense. Are they together or apart? Did that battle really happen, or is his mind making it up?

The sense of being alone is enough to jolt him badly, gasping and yelping in alarm]
Agito-! No...alone, that's right...but...nnn.

[He remembers this device on his head] What's going on...my head huuuurts... [Whine. He doesn't understand...]

There...there was a battle, wasn't there? But...we've been here all this time...nn. It doesn't make sense...

My head...

[Curling up on the lounge here sounds like a really good idea. And burying his head in Agito's side is also a good idea. Goddamn he has a headache...his other doesn't seem to be in a much better condition, judging from the growling]

Ever since yesterday I've felt the most disgusting thing across my skin. Like little insects crawling inside it.

[Mostly because of that conversation he overheard Johnny and Yuuri having.]

I think for the first time in my life and after I'm going to actually be sick.

[Look who's up early! Not that it's any surprise - the early risers of the dome might've spotted Ryu running around at the first crack of sunlight anyway. But today is different!]

[Today he has a puppy with him! … Well, maybe he's not such a puppy. The dog is pretty big, but Ryu doesn't really know anything about dogs anyway.]

[They're mostly running in the park, but they're also running to the convenience store for food for both of them. Those out and about might run into them (figuratively or literally) as they go about their morning business or chores!]

[After listening to various people talk over the communicator and reading through the information things, Syaoran can't be bothered to actually make a post because he's figured out the basics of this place and asking the same questions would just be a waste of time. He's trying to find his sword and/or look for a way out because there's got to be one somewhere, no matter what anyone else says. He wants to get back and he wants to get back now.

So you might come across a ten year old wearing some green formal robes. He doesn't look very happy because his sword his gone and he was - in typical Marina fashion - in the middle of something really important back home. As in, trying to help save the world important.]

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!

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.))

[One of the worst things about being sick is that it gets pretty lonely. So, now that Red's feeling better, he wants to talk to everyone to make up for all that he's missed in the last four days.]

Hello everyone! [energetic wave] How are all of you doing today?

[...it's almost dinnertime, but her house is so empty. She doesn't like being alone in it, even with Edward for company, so... umm... NETWORK POST TIME]

I can't believe we let Halloween go by without telling any scary stories! I mean, I guess I can, since we were all busy and the day before was pretty scary, but -- does anyone know any fun scary stories they could tell? Am I the only one who missed having them?

[private // Ushiro, Rayflo]
How are you...? It's been a little while since I've talked to you.

[With a sigh, Alice starts to speak in a rather flat tone.]

If anyone cares, it looks like that brochure was wrong. That A.I. won't remove restraints early without special circumstances.

[Filtered to Nunnally, Lelouch, Suzaku]
My restraint was removed last night anyway, and I've been learning the area since.

Ah... Nunnally, would you still... like to meet up?

[The morning brought an empty bed to Maya & Pearl's room. Maya's young cousin had simply vanished, and sure enough the departures post said she was missing too.

It's a bittersweet thing to Maya. Pearl never belonged here in the first place, no matter what Sentience claimed, but Maya's room will feel empty again. Living with Jennifer & Co. certainly helps, but as far as Maya knows, she might be the only one from her Earth. It's a little lonely to have that feeling, but she's done well covering it so far.

Maya's bundled up in weather clothing as she walks through the light snowfall along with Missile, the Ditto. Missile has taken on the form of a kitten, copied from a real one at the pet café where the two were not long ago. She runs along ahead of Maya, batting at snowflakes as they hit the ground and melt.]

((OOC: If you have telepathy or that sort of thing, feel free to pick up on her bittersweet feelings, but otherwise it'll be pretty well hidden.))

I've noticed that there's a significant lack of animal life around here. The few animals we do have are either fellow inmates, domestic, or rabid. What a shame. I've always liked bird song. Fish are poignant and charming, but unfortunately silent.

At the risk of sounding terribly mundane -- what's your favorite animal? [♥] If you don't have one, then go ahead and complain about the ones you hate instead.

[ooc: you can find Zelman sitting on a park bench. so normal. except for the fact that he's virtually untouched by the light snowfall. if you venture close enough, you'll realize that the snow never had a chance, because all of it is melting before it can get close.]

[Cain is in uniform, including the standard issue fancy hat. It tends to grab people's attention.] Good morning, everyone. For those of you just joining us, I'm Commissar Ciaphas Cain, servant of the Imperium of Mankind back home, and member of the Defense Force around here. And apparently, I'm a new teacher at Marina Academy.

Anyway! Basic swordsmanship. Anyone interested in learning how to cross blades? Of course, they'll all be wooden. It'll be held three times a... [Frowning at the contents of his teacher folder.] Do we even call that a week?

[Chucking the folder aside.] Frak that, it's an hour at Noon on days ending with one, four, and eight. Since today is Day 88, that gives you plenty of time to decide if you want to join. But if anyone's interested in a meet and greet, being shown which end of the sword to hold, or anything like that, I'll be at the dojo for the next hour.

[An audio feed comes on, but it's silent for about a minute or so until the voice of a young boy finally speaks up. In a manner of speaking that is; it's very much on the quiet and timid side]

...After to listening to everything going on... I guess I can't really say or keep thinking that all of this and what that paper said isn't real, s-so...here goes... [Deep breath of preparation!]

U-um, I'm Emil-- E-Emil Castagnier-- and I'm, well... [His voice grows smaller and he falters and fades out, but only for a moment] I guess I'm introducing myself like everyone else is doing and just sort of wondering if maybe-- there's anyone else from Sylvarant or Tethe' Alla here too? I'm already pretty sure Marta isn't here, since I haven't heard her yet...

[But still hopeful! Please oh please let someone else be here don't let him be alone again. Being alone is hard once you've had friends]

And, uh, I'd wanted to thank a-- Ms. li Britannia, and a Mr. vi Britannia too? For the basket and the things in it. T-the cookies are really good.

[He lets out a shaky sigh once done-- that was hard guys you have no idea-- and the feed cuts out after a bit]
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?

[Toothless is... not very happy at the moment. He's attempting to run.]

Noooooo! They're chasing me, they're chasing me! Go away! Stop! They won't stop! Help!

[He turns around. Some bots are trying to subdue him to get him to go to the hospital because he had a quite a few bites taken out of him by lizards yesterday. However, he doesn't really understand what a hospital is and he doesn't really understand that the bots just want to help. So he's going to lash out and swipe at a few and maybe smack a couple with his tail, sending them flying while snarling loudly, acting like the hurt, cornered, and scared creature that he is.]

Don't attack me! Small daggers! Small daggers!

[Those small daggers would be needles with tranquilizers in them because he's not calming down and he's not planning on going quietly. The dragon opens his mouth, fully prepared to shoot out a blast of fire... but he lets out a sharp noise of surprise as one bot succeeds in giving him a shot. That bot soon goes flying into some wall. The shot only makes Toothless more panicked and aggressive. Anyone want to help attempt to calm him down?]

[ the whoosh and crackly sound of fire -- ]

Monsters, twins, vampires, underage children, artificial intelligence -- [ the bzzt of static ]

This place more or less covers them all. Feel free to add whatever I've missed.

[ muffled shrieking of raptors and more static ] On another note, I do hope that this doesn't become too common a occurrence. Too much of a good thing makes it terribly boring.

[ ooc: is cheating and using Eye Raid to stop the monsters in their tracks. feel free to cut down some of the raptors. ]

[Through the pattering of the rain, there’s a sound of thumping and skittering on the rooftops of houses. The figure races through the dome, climbing, jumping, and crawling through abandoned buildings and up window sills. Those whom remained at home will find letters slipped into windows and under doors, heralded with a cry of “delivery!”. But she does not hesitate for long at any of these stops, for the lizards are hungry...]

[The home stretch to the shelter is a perilous run, but she lunges off of the closest rooftop and races to the entrance, carapace clattering all the way. Only now does the Peregrine Mendicant drop her grey hood, identifying herself to anyone guarding and fighting at the entrance.]

[Though she slows once inside the relative safety of the shelter, she remains on alert, flashlight sweeping the halls. Today’s mail has been specially sorted in favor of those who discussed staying in the shelter if they normally do not. They will have their letters personally delivered, though PM might be short on small talk. At some point she notices that she’s covered in grime and scrapes from her stunt, but she doesn’t seem to care much.]

[The sirens are enough by themselves to wake anyone up. Thankfully Akito's tuner kit contains a small torch which lights up the room. Agito's the first to recover, flicking on a channel to ask wtf is going on, but.

When things start changing, it's enough of a reminded to make Akito scream]

Fuck- Akito what-?

[If you're able to translate very stammered, very fast talking, you can hear Akito repeating 'Not again' over and over. The crying doesn't make it any easier to hear either]

The hell...? What the fuck is going on? [That is demanded to the rest of the place, while Agito tries to calm his other down and stop him clinging hard enough to hurt]
