Is this some kind of bullshit joke? A prison? I may have done a lot of things in the past that would have gotten me in here, but I was pardoned for all of that!

[punches a nearby wall and lets out a string of curses; partially because that actually hurt but mostly because she knows that she probably does still belong in here.] The least you could do is get this thing off my leg. It’s not like I’m going to go around killing people.

[some silence, a sigh.]

Is a normal life really too much to ask?
[Video | Very Public][Action | Open] 'Cross Chocolate' Announcement
07 March 2011 at 09:53 pm
[A video feed activates a bit after 8 AM, showing a perky blonde dressed in a rather red yet stylish tuxedo, complete with a top hat, a white rose pinned to her chest, and a cane in her hand.]

Hi! Some of you might not know me, but I'm Milly Ashford!

Since many of you here are of school age, Nunnally and I have decided that this is the perfect place for a Student Council! [Even if it is technically unofficial for now, it's not like there's money to worry about, right? She just hasn't really had the nerve or chance to discuss it with Euphemia yet, what with her weird behaviour...] If you don't know, a Student Council is a group of students who help organize the student body for events such as cultural festivals and also helps manage relations and planning between school clubs!

But don't worry! Even if you're not a student, since this is an all-ages facility, you can still be a member or create your own clubs no matter your age! You'll just have to drop by and propose your club and we'll help set it up and make sure that everyone has their own space to work in with no conflicts!

We'll get to more details tomorrow, but more importantly, to kick off the founding of the Student Council, we're holding a special festival today for St. Valentine's Day! And don't worry, even if you're not a student you can take part!

Romance is, of course, the focus of St. Valentine's Day, so we want to help you out! And what better to use than chocolate?

So, today will be: Cross Chocolate Day!

For today, there's one special rule:

[She pulls a heart-shaped chocolate wrapped in pink foil out of a sleeve and holds it up for the camera.]

Anyone who gets his or her romantic target to eat a piece of their chocolate wins a date with him or her!

Details behind the cut! )

So tomorrow is the big day, yes?

I'm curious, so humor me a bit.~

Are there any plans in the works or is it to be just any day like the rest?

Inquiring minds would like to know!

[In a very large room in the Education Center, there is a backdrop of reds, whites, pinks, and....browns? Yep, browns, in all shades, shapes, and sizes. If chocolate is your thing, this might just be heaven for you. Everything you could ever want or need to make that perfect one of a kind Valentine's Day chocolate is right here, waiting for you. Scattered around the room are all of the [non-hiatused] Host Club members, handsome and well-dressed as always, prepared to cater to your every whim.

Won't you come join them?]

Valentines Day is in two days. Does everyone remember the date auction we had last time? Now that was really fun. [REMEMBER WHEN SHE SOLD YOU ALL? AND PROFITED?]

I think I lost my voice after for a couple of days, ha. It doesn't look like we'll have another date auction this year by yours truly - sorry! - but I still encourage everyone to go on dates~ After all~ when you go on a date, you help save the environment! [lmao shut up this is totally true]

[ Hermione has never been great with stress, and it shows. The exam-period look about her has only been exacerbated with the artificial sun and pens and mini-Harry and his tiny, green voice. Hermione is tired, but her eyes are still glaring determination. Though, they'd be glaring anyway. Hermione has never been great with stress, and it shows.

So she's retreated, as will be visible, to the greatest sanctuary Marina has to offer her: the library. Added bonus, she won't have the nerve to snap at people in it. ]

I don't know if this little event serves as a distraction or a compensation for yesterday. [ her pen fits neatly in the indent of her bottom lip, and she's less scornful. ] Valentines day. Honestly.

Oh, Edgeworth. I hope your chat went better than mine. [ With that, the feed blacks out. She slots her forehead back in to her hand and goes back to writing ]

Hello lovely denizens of Marina, I am Tamaki Suoh and I would like to inform all of our newcomers of the Host Club which I founded! It is a club which makes use of a man's good looks and talents to please the beautiful women who visit us! And if that simply isn't enough to entice you to join us, I would also like to point out that this is a marvelous way of meeting new people. You will gain the opportunity to learn more about those you already know and form new friendships with others who you haven't met yet!

As king and president of this extraordinary club, I will be more than happy to answer any and all of the questions you may have for me about this so please don't hesitate to ask!
The 102nd Day
14 February 2011 at 10:39 pm
Good morning, inmates, it is the 102nd day of the third generation. There were no fatalities or life-threatening injuries sustained yesterday and Princess Euphemia has been arrested by the Defense Force. There is no need to be overly concerned.

After much deliberation, and as St. Valentine's Day will be observed soon, I have decided to amend the ban on sexual relations, to a certain extent. There is now a registration system in place, and inmates will be able to apply at the kiosk to form a sexual partnership. Permits will only be issued to inmates determined to be emotionally capable of a healthy partnership of that nature, and interested parties would be required to submit to a non-invasive sterilization procedure to prevent reproduction.

In order to prevent sex-motivated crime, an inmate will only be allowed to seek this permit once for the duration of their incarceration and with only one person. It would be a decision akin to marriage, and if the partnership is dissolved, no future ones will be permitted. As it is a choice that will greatly impact the rest of your life here, all interested parties are urged to consider this option carefully.

Inmates Miles Edgeworth and Yui Hirasawa, your requests can be retrieved at the entrance to Sector 0.

[The video clicks on to a smiling face that should be familiar to most of the dome.]

Hello! I wonder if I could have everyone's attention.

[She tilts her head, looking fondly out into the video audience.] I need some help. You see, [She turns the device so that the shelter stairwell is visible and at the bottom is a redhead—twisted and lying limply.] Orihime is blocking the stairs, and I wouldn't want anyone to trip and get hurt! Could someone remove the body? Watch your step please!

Acumen took the gun I was using, but I still need to kill the rest of the Japanese here. So, if you're Japanese please go ahead and kill yourself or meet me by the koi pond. I'll drown everyone just as fast as I can.

Oh, I hope the fish don't mind.

07 February 2011 at 10:06 pm
Hmmmmmm~! [Not even remotely flustered.] I see how it is now.

[There's a rustle of the pamphlet in the background, and he chuckles to himself.] How charitable of you, providing this data so freely.

Alternate universes, artificial intelligences, and complimentary snacks, is it? This is just fascinating.

03 February 2011 at 08:26 pm
[Just as evening starts to fall, one of the parks in Sector 4 has been festooned with streamers, bright lights in a variety of colors, a big upraised dais, tables of refreshments, and music. It looks like a perfectly normal party from the outside. Optional masks are provided in little bins beside the dais, but you're responsible for your own costumes...!

...And if you're dressed as a character, the moment you step onto the dais, you will believe yourself to have led that character's life for your whole life. This effect will last until "midnight", in this case Sunday, even if you leave the party.]
28 January 2011 at 07:23 pm
I've never seen a place so fond of parties before. [ Lenalee is thumbing curiously through the costumes hung through the clothing store, and her topic is vaguely serious but her face still light ]

It does seem to like its little. "Surprises", doesn't it? [ she rolls a plastic crown between her fingers ] I suppose, considering its strange idea of criminals, it might as well be a strange prison.

I want to thank everyone who showed up today's Sign Language class. I know we've lost a few students in the past few weeks, but I appreciate everyone's adjustments to their partners. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say this in the class, but... thank you all! [ She smiles, turning to look toward her handiwork. The scene behind her is that of the public bathing area, but things are... different. Candles are strewn about, incense has been set up, and tables piled high with wigs, make-up, and other beauty products are all lined against open spaces that are unoccupied by the baths themselves, or low stools.

Doesn't it just make you curious?

Attention everyone!

I'm sorry to interrupt your dinners if you're eating dinner now. Or whatever you do afterward if it is now after. If you haven't eaten yet you should try the ramen place. It's really good.

Oh, um, but...I have something very important to tell you all!

Diva is dangerous, and you should stay away from her! She might turn you into a vampire! ...Or lick you.

Okay, I think that's all. Oh! Except she's got long dark hair and blue eyes and pale skin and she's kind of pretty.

[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.))

[ The room above the arcade is decorated today -- nothing too much, just streamers and balloons and a dorky handmade banner with "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LELOUCH" written on it in large colorful letters. It's a dinner party, albeit the least formal dinner party ever, with plates and silverware spread over multiple tables of random shapes and sizes, and a buffet-style table of foods.

Help yourself to as much of the food as you want; some of it was made by ORIHIME so it will look very weird but taste great and some of it was made by CECILE (Suzaku is so sorry in advance, he didn't know) so it will look great but taste very weird. There's also some actually-normal food, made other, less scary people, and some by bots at the last minute. There are also several completely different strawberry shortcakes, all of which have candles in them.

And don't forget to leave a gift! There's a pile of them on one table near the door. ♥ ]

((ooc: Event-style posting! Tag once to arrive at the party and then reply to other people's tags to interact. :D EVERYONE WHO IS a.) a friend of Suzaku's or b.) a friend of Nunnally's or c.) a friend of Lelouch's or d.) on the DF or e.) generally seems nice is totally invited. If you just saw the lights from the street and got curious, you can also wander up.

ALSO, CHAR: if Milly wants to interfere with the decorating or add anything else to the party, IM! ♥))

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!

[The video feed activates to reveal a tall blonde to the dome, dressed in a school uniform consisting of a yellow jacket, black mini-skirt, white shirt, and green tie. Not exactly the warmest clothing as it snows outside. Although a bit visibly unsettled, she addresses the camera calmly. A backdrop of tables and bookshelves can be seen behind her.]

Hello, everyone.

I really don't know what to say, this is all sort of unexpected. But thank you for the helpful pamphlet, um... [She looks a little uncertain as she addresses someone who is supposed to be dead. The pamphlet did say people could come from different points in time but...] Your Highness... [More uncertainty as she's not quite sure how to address him in public if he's using his royal surname again. Habit wins out, though.] ...and Lelouch. The basket is quite lovely too.

[She smiles slightly, though her eyes still have a look of uncertainty.] This really is quite something isn't it? I take it this isn't some kind of joke. [The huge glass dome and seawater visible from outside kind of hints that it sure isn't. Not to mention the snow she showed up in.

But these allegations? Harboring terrorists? Are they talking about Kallen...? Milly hadn't even known that until a very short time ago. Accessory to the development of weapons of mass destruction? The device Nina had built hadn't gone off, though...Thankfully...

She stops that thought.]

In any case, I guess I should introduce myself. I'm Milly Ashford. I hope to make your acquaintance.
