To those wandering the park )

[Video | Open]
[Have a good view of Ed leaning really close to the camera and laughing, scarf haphazardly thrown over the shoulder and a pair of goggles draped around the child’s neck.]

Oopsies, looks like Ed got caught huh~

Acumen, Artifical Inteligence construct, I wonder if that means that he’s like MPU? I know! Ed will call you Acu for short, it’s so much cooler! So what’s it like? Does Ed have to do hard time? Was there a bounty on Edward? Who go it? Does Ed have to go by inmate 112058 now?

[There a sound of Ed’s stomach growling, so she starts digging through her basket now.]

Foody, food, food do you have any? Yes you don't? No you do? [Suddenly there is a squeal holding up a pack triumphantly and falls backwards.] COOKIES! Cookies for Edward!

I can’t take this injustice!

[ The video feed flickers on and presents all who watch with a young man. He’s in a bright, orange jumpsuit, facing the camera. Tears are streaming from his watery green eyes and staining his olive cheeks. He’s had to rub them for about five minutes to make them this red ]

I want to go home! I miss my family! It’s not fair! I was payin’ my debt to society or whatever! Look at me! I’m just gettin’ outta my community payback fer fuckssakes. I did my time!

Somebody help me! Kelly! Curtis! BARRYYYYY!

[ He’s making all sorts of noise, wheeling his arms dramatically. Until he remembers that he’s on the edge of a complex of flats. He settles a little, but he’s breathing harshly, gulping as if full of emotion. He’s desperately looking at the camera ]

Please. Send me back. Or I have nothing to live for.

I swear to God, I will jump off of this bloody roof and spray my gibblets all over your pristine walk, Acuwhotsit.

[ Despite his language, and his height, you should realize this is just a kid. A teenager. ]

(( OOC: Nathan is immortal and cannot technically die. He will still, however, jump off the building and spatter a little on the pavement IF he deems it necessary. Potential gore and trigger warnings.

If you'd rather, your character can find him 'dead' on the sidewalk on the way to the complex. He'll look like he's a proper fall victim and won't be breathing. ))
[ Event: Summer Solstice Festival ]
29 June 2011 at 12:23 pm
[ Around noon, the robots that had been swarming the beach scatter, leaving a transformed landscape in their wakes. There are volleyball nets set up in the sand, along with colorful umbrellas and blankets beneath them. Part of the water has been sectioned off for water polo, while inflatable rafts in fanciful shapes are ready for use in the open area.

Ringing the beach are food stands serving street and festival foods: chin chin, takoyaki and taiyaki, aloo tikki, sabikh, empanada, hot dogs, ice cream and shaved ice, and suchlike. There is one stand where a robot serves an alcoholic punch not completely unlike sangria. Several of the other stands also serve non-alcoholic drinks. Clean up robots zoom from place to place, picking up garbage. ]

[once the line is open she hesitates, like so many times before she finally had the courage to click the button. Anew quickly double-checks the filter, takes a deep breath,]

Does anyone mind answering a question for me? I know it's a little personal -- [just say it]

Is it a hard thing for you to stand up for yourself?

[Whatever it was that Hiling had set out to do, she lost interest in and found herself instead sprawled out upon the couch in the Shelter lounge. The sound of white noise can be heard from the television and a glass of juice is set on the table just out of arm's reach. She may appear to be sleeping or she may not attempt to hide the fact that she is watching whoever else is in the room.]
10 June 2011 at 09:15 pm
Why - why would Acumen arrest a ghost? I don't think it makes much sense...Ghosts should be able to move on, right? I don't think it's fair to keep one here with m-me - with people. [does she sound a bit stressed?]

I really, really, really hope Acumen doesn't arrest any more...That would be the worst.

[Anyone who passes through Sector 1 will see Sakura slowly inching along the way. She's just left the headquarters and she's on her way home. It's dark and she looks more than unhappy being outside. In fact, she even has her wand out - just in case.]

[ooc: there is a 99.99% chance that Sakura will flail and accidentally hit you with her wand if you sneak up on her in the dark. She's had a traumatic day okay]
07 June 2011 at 09:08 pm
[The feed opens on a clean, lonely cot in the abandoned clinic, the once white sheets now a faded gray, but still stark in comparison to the dark figure huddled in the middle of the cot. His name is Ritsuka, though he doesn't know if he should even be calling himself that anymore. His face is far too young to wear this expression: his brow knotted with worry, exhaustion hollowing his dark purple eyes. He sits with his knees drawn up to his chest, his bandaged hands hugging his shins along with a sleek black tail. Two cat ears lie almost flat against his black hair, all the more bizarre for his additional set of very human ears. The contents of the welcome basket are strewn about him, jelly beans dotting the sheets with little buttons of color, and the pamphlet lying in a wrinkly mess at his feet.

He glances at the communicator and turns his face away once more, his cheeks flushing with color as he frowns very hard at his knees. It's taken him a while to get enough courage to turn on the communicator, and he will not ruin it all by crying now.

He breathes deeply through his nose and speaks in a voice trembling with forced calm.]

If anyone's there, can you tell me where I can find a place to stay?

06 June 2011 at 08:03 pm
Prison?! You gotta be kidding me! I didn't even commit any of those crimes you got listed. Well I did kinda break the Great Stone Dragon but that ain't the point!

I gotta protect Mulan and help her save China! I can't just leave her alone with all those Huns! That girl's gonna get herself cut in two if I'm not there! And what about my position? I ain't never gonna get it back if I'm stuck in a prison.

[A beat of silence.]

Ringing the gong aint lookin' so bad now.......
[video/voice, open!]
06 June 2011 at 07:33 pm
[the feed opens in a short brunette girl chewing a jelly bean, identifiable by the fact that she still has some in her hand. her other hand appears to be holding the camera-- or fidgeting with it, more accurately, as she balances it on... something. probably the welcome basket, given that everything from inside the basket is currently piled haphazardly next to her, food items in her lap.]

Hi. [no smile, just an idle look at the communicator camera for a second. she's not really a morning person on the best of days.] Marina Asylum, right? I'm Dani. [a small wave.] Thanks for the basket. Pretty welcoming, for a prison. I figured there'd be more... prison sort of things. Bars and orange uniforms and a lack of privacy. Not cookies.

[she pauses for a second at that, looking contemplative.] The cookies were delicious, by the way. Thanks to whoever made them.

Anyway, I guess I'm new here and not leaving anytime soon, so... I'd better get settled in. Any tips?
25 May 2011 at 11:06 pm
[After the unexpected outbreak of violence from earlier, the young hero was left shaken and more than a little agitated. He's thankfully only a little roughed up. Why hadn't it occurred to him that people here really had been locked up for good reason? Everyone he'd met so far had been nothing but kind, but he would have to stay on guard now--for Zelda's sake.]

[He's slumped underneath a tree in the park, and the notes of the ocarina drift almost mournfully through the park as he tries to distract himself. It isn't working. He wishes he could just escape from this place with the princess--but it's no use. Teleportation simply doesn't work here.]

[A familiar melody comes to mind, and before he can stop himself, he's quietly playing the Song of Storms, and he has to admit that he's enjoying himself. It's easy to get lost in the music. He plays through it once, and starts to begin again when something very odd strikes him--it's growing dark.]

[There's suddenly a crack of thunder, and he jumps a little with surprise just before rain begins to pour down. The young man is left looking entirely shocked at himself, staring up at the sky with bewilderment. His earlier scuffle forgotten, he scrambles with the communicator after a moment, and forgets to filter it.]

Zelda? I think the Ocarina still works! [He summoned a storm! Be proud of him!]
24 May 2011 at 02:11 pm

[If you happen to look up at the clouds overhead, you may spot a rainbow streak dashing through them. Two clouds are already spinning around like tops, and another few have holes in them from her flying through them at speed. She's currently weaving through another set like a pro]

Now this is what I'm talking about! [Ignoring the fact she's not talking to anyone in particular! RD is a happy pony. She can finally train properly! And she is going to make the most of today by working her tail off]

((OOC: Feel free to call out to her or use this as a thread-jack mini-event thing))
[Event] Night of Floating Lanterns
20 May 2011 at 08:18 pm
[It starts with one light at first, lifting itself from a roof nearest the beach--a solitary lantern glowing and drifting away on the light breeze. From one come many, several burning glows bursting to life and rising up above the trees and the buildings, lanterns of all shapes and sizes floating along like a river of lights. They bob and weave around each other, lightly bumping to change their directions, similar to stars high up near the apex of the dome, the waters below sparkling from the glow.

At the beach there are several tables where inmates may receive a lantern of their own to light and send on its way into the sky, joining the others as they burn through the night.]

[The lanterns are all around the dome, but they will eventually make their way to floating above the waters at the beach. Feel free to see them just about anywhere outdoors! If you want the full effect, check out the full scene from Tangled.]

[Rarity is BEAMING. Clearly, something amazing has happened.]

I had something more formal planned, but I'm so excited I just can't contain it! I have finally crafted my first dress for humans! It took a lot of research, and I know how simple it is, but I think it's a perfect contrast to our surroundings!

[Steps aside, revealing a red dress on a dress form.]

I call it "Fire Flowers Under Waves".
[Video | Action | Open | Backdated to early evening]
15 May 2011 at 10:59 am
[It's evening, the bright sparkling fake skies high up in the air outside, while inside everypony is carefully tucking themselves in for a nice, safe, and comfortable rest. Of course... it's the same for all of the animals, too! In fact, the interior walls and familiar setting of the pet shop is evident as the feed seems to accidentally switch on, a bunny hopping over the screen.

Standing amidst a myriad of different animals, all seeming to settle down is Fluttershy as she scoops up the little bunny into her hooves. Her voice is soft and doting, as though talking to a child.]

There there, Cotton Tail. It's soooo late and well past your bed time. Baby bunnies need their rest too, you know, so that we can all get up bright and sunshiney early in the morning. Mr. Sun will be so sad if he doesn't see you. [Prompting] Why don't you close your eyes for Fluttershy?

[The baby bunny sniffs the air before shifting it's head away.]

Oh, but you'll be so tired in the morning if you don't! You need your rest. [Once more the little white rabbit shifts it's head the opposite way as though ignoring her.] What's wrong, are you not tired...? [No response] Is your bed not comfortable enough? [No response] Are you hungry...? [This time the bunny begins to excitedly sniff the air, wiggling within her grasp.]

Alright, I'll get you a carrot as a bed time snack, but then you have to promise to go to sleep. [Lifting into the air on soft, yellow wings she flies out of screen for a moment, before landing carefully once more a moment later, the bunny nibbling on a carrot. Cradling him she hums softly.] There now. Just nibble on that and close your eyes. I'll sing you a lullaby. [Rocking him back and forth she sings softly in a gentle voice.]

Hush now, Quiet now ♩
It's time to lay your sleepy head
Hush now, Quiet now
It's time to go to bed ♫

[Anew laughs as her blue haro rolls around in front of her on the grass. Its eyes blink, but it doesn't say much yet. It bumps into her pet giza rabbit which looks momentarily annoyed before Anew picks up the haro and moves it away.]

I think it's time you had a name, little guy.

[She looks at the camera, tucking some lavender hair behind her ear as she shyly addresses everyone:]

Does anyone have any good ideas for his name?
The 114th Day
09 May 2011 at 09:53 pm
Good morning, inmates. It is the 114th day of the third generation. Today will be warm and clear.

The ice skating rink in Sector 6 has been fitted with some modifications. As of today, the rink can be used for both ice skates and wheel-based skates. The modifications can be activated by a switch in the rink, and is accompanied by instructions. Please only use the appropriate equipment on each.

[A rubbing on the head with a hoof turns the video. She may or may not have just crashed into a building. As her vision returns, kinda lying on the ground, Dash reads the screen. Guess who's suddenly not a happy pony]


No, okay, no. No, no, no. Who came up with this stunt, because it is SO not funny. Seriously. I was THIS CLOSE to pulling that trick off! Who thought it'd be smart to interrupt me when I'm training?! And me, a criminal! Ordinarily I'd be amused by this, but when I was THAT CLOSE to pulling off the Sonic Rainboom again-!

[She takes off mid-way through this to 'pace' angrily in the air. This tirade goes on for a little bit before she calms down enough to actually think]

...guys? You guys are here, right? This is all just a prank, right Pinkie Pie?


....this is so not cool.
