[there is a terrified redheaded girl on your screen who looks a little bit like the world is ending and sounds just as distressed. she's still wearing her pyjamas, and is gesturing a little as she speaks.]

I know I jumped the turnstile at the subway, but if I didn't I was going to miss the train and I swiped my card twice the next day to make up for it, and I know I didn't tell my dad right away but when I did he promised it was alright and we made sure I was punished for it! I don't think I've ever tortured anyone and I've even worked with the police before, so-- so--

--I don't understand why I'm in trouble now! [she stares at the screen for a moment longer, clearly distressed by all this.]

I-- is there any way to leave? I have a math test tomorrow and I have to finish studying for it!

[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.]

[Naoya's actually wearing his glasses! Or, well, a pair of reading glasses he found. He's sitting on his couch at home, looking a little bored.]

I have a question, Marina. Does the concept of a 'soul' exist in your world? If so, what counts as one, and what happens to them when they die? Do they go to a holding place until some judgement day, or are they stripped of memories and recycled into new bodies?

Just out of curiosity.

[He sits back on the couch, waiting for answers.]

[It's uncomfortable and ever frustrating, that familiar unease that tenses fingers, white upon knuckles stretched, clenching into the edge of a blue coat. Yet small feet press forward regardless, internal struggle outwardly suppressed for all intents a purposes, with the exception of a small bead of sweat trickling down a pretty & pale cheek, brushed a faint shade of pink with the lingering remnants of cool air still within the dome.

A glance to her side and Yuuki smiles in a bit of relief, some of the tension dissipating visibly from her body with a small upturning of her lips.]

Well, I guess technically there isn't anything I should worry about. After all according to your grumpy rescuer you're the most threatening animal in the dome.

[Looking at the bunny (Busa-kun as she's fondly named him) floppy ears dangling and nose wiggling as he glances up at her from within her bag, currently strapped across her chest, she laughs before reaching down to gently brush fingers across his nose. His fangs are barely visible except when looking at him from the side. It's one of the cuter and more enduring features of him, she thinks.]

We're almost there. I'm sure May will play with you, I know it has to get boring, being locked up in the manor all the time.

[Sentiments she understands all too well, though left unspoken to her fuzzier friend. A dozen other thoughts weigh thick & heavy on her mind. Most recently her current conversation with Zero across the network in addition to current events involving friends and unfortunate circumstances. Perhaps it's because of those things that she's out, now, a second bag also dangling at her hips. It's contents are carefully tucked in side, though 'purchased' for lack of a better word, the day before while out with Ciel. Something lighter, less harsh & depressing for everyone to partake in. She's looking forward to it herself, while hoping to keep an eye on things too.

Of course she knows not everyone shares the same idea of fun as herself though, and there are others, yet, who prefer locking themselves inside and being, in general, antisocial. She gives a small huff. Well, at the very least, even a hermit needs to get out sometimes. If she has anything to do with it, there will be another in attendance to the big event. Nearing Kamui's, she gives a small knock to the door once arriving, his scent thick in the air as she waits patiently.]

[Anyone who looks up today will see Sakura flying all over the dome. She saw the empty room this morning (just like yesterday) and maybe it was the neatly made bed, the absence of shoes and clothes, the fact that it seemed like her brother was never there that made her run outside and pull out Fly Card.]

[He can't be gone. Not like that! Why would Acumen do that to her- He can't be gone.]

[Her breath is coming up in short gasps, but she forces herself to keep on flying. If she looks hard enough she'll find him. She would, she definitely would.]

[ooc: feel free to catch Sakura everywhere!]

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.

[As promised, he hasn't gone near her!]

[Since Tseng was nowhere to be found, Rufus found himself feeling restless and at odds after the chains were removed this morning. He needed to see more of this place. That and every time he wandered off, Tseng seemed to have a talent of appearing out of the blue.

He is not bothering to think of where he is going and soon arrives, much surprised to actually find one in a prison of all places, at the beach. Come bother poke and prod at him!]

( ooc : action totally open to anyone that'd like to come across them! )


[It is evening time, and for all intents and purposes the video appears to be accidental at first. The view's an open-ish area in the dome (the park? probably), and currently occupied by two women, standing and facing each other, though the video feed mostly only shows the younger girl. At the present moment, it is the older one who speaks however, exclaiming quite enthusiastically to the other, pointing to her and generally being loud and dramatic.]

My darling, I will show no mercy, as you have seen this evening, and I fully expect the same of you towards me. Otherwise, there is no point. [If the passionate glint of excitement can be seen in her eyes, it's pretty obvious to notice. The woman is loving this. She's made for combat.] You might encounter bruises and obstacles in this training, but I'm confident it will be overcome by perseverance, my dear. In fact! Any others, where they to be witnesses today, would only agree, I am most certain. [And anyone watching the video... Did you see that wink?]


Once more! Yuuki Kuran, come at me with all your might!

[ A young woman is skating around the dome, not nearly dressed well enough for speeding in chillier weather, even if it doesn't look as though Subaru minds. There is a low whine that accompanies the engines on her skates, and she's gliding along casually, paying special attention to the main roads. There has to be some pattern to the layout that could clue her in to possible escape routes.

She's restless, excited, and surprised to be off of the chains after only one day here. Even more surprising is just how tiring it is to use her abilities. She can't yet tell if it's a result of whatever force was keeping them suppressed yesterday, and that she'll recover, or if it's some kind of permanent AMF field...

It doesn't stop her from using Wing Road -- a wide ribbon of bright blue light, inscribed with Belkan runes -- to create ramps up to the tops of taller buildings so she can get a better view of things. It just means she feels weighed down after she does so. The map only did so much good, after all. She needs to see things with her own eyes. The situation might just look less hopeless that way. ]

This place is strange...

(ooc: Subaru can be found skating along any main roads any time today, from the afternoon until late evening~)

This has got to be the worst headache I've ever had. To date. Even worse than that time I fell off a building. [ his cheerful tone makes it hard to tell whether he's serious or not ] But anyway, it's all coming back to me. This is Marina right? Long time no see I guess.

Oh, right. I almost forgot. [ small pause ]

Thanks so much Acumen! You've never had better timing until now. If it weren't for you I'd still be back there so, I really appreciate it.

[she flips the communicator on mid-song. soft singing]

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly~
I don't know why she swallowed the fly~
I gu~ess~ she'll die~

[abruptly stops]

....It's not fair. Acumen shouldn't be allowed to do mean things like this. I want to see my family again! It's been so long since I've seen any of them too. I wish I saw Papa.

[Private to Gin]

Gin! You're taking me out today. [so insistent]

[It had been a long day yesterday and Lacus hadn't taken much time to eat well, having prioritized the time with Kira -- he had such a heavy burden to carry. And so did Neil, as was made all too clear last night.]

[Today is a day for remedying such matters, and she's started with two things: a picnic of fresh fruit and breakfast foods in the park, and confiscating Neil's communicator until he was in better shape to talk. That does not mean, however, that she isn't going to try and help. Before she enjoys her breakfast, she makes a series of calls to the relevant parties:]

[Private respectively to Lyle Dylandy, Klaus Grado, Tieria Erde, Setsuna Seie, and Euphemia li Britannia:]

Good morning! If you have a few moments, could we speak?

((OOC: Anyone can join her picnic! She has plenty~ Also, to be clear, each individual she called gets their own private filter.))

That was seriously one of the most annoying days I have ever experienced.

Tch, I hope they're really all gone.

And good riddance, too!

Prison, huh. Not like any prison I've ever been in.

[Yuri looks around, looking pretty haggard, actually. He just woke up from something of a coma, and combined with the weakening effects of this place... But he's doing his best to appear casual. Seem normal.

Even if he's slightly concerned about the lack of weapon.]

They get more creative every time I step into these places. No door, no key, no easy way out, right? Smart.

-- a sci-fi movie with an underwater city in it? Or... hmm-- wait, maybe this is supposed to be Atlantis. But in the future! That'd explain the eyepiece! Of course, that has to be it!

[ The seemingly-random declaration was followed up with a triumphant fist-smack on his open palm, despite the ridiculousness of his claim. Nonetheless, once that was figured out, the brunette didn't waste any time moving on to the next issue: figuring out how this super-cool high-tech eyepiece worked. ]

You know, for a dream about future Atlantis, I was kind of expecting robot mermaids, or laser-guided tridents, or... what would Atlantis look like in the future, anyway? Did anyone ever officially figure out what it looked like before? Maybe--

[ A pause in which Kazuki presses a button. And the sound goes out. Although his lips are still moving. One can only assume he's spouting out more ridiculous nonsense. It doesn't take long before he un-mutes the communicator, finally having figured out that it's been recording this whole time. ]

FELLOW ATLANTIANS! ... Wait, maybe I should've given this more thought. What should I say... Greetings?

[Have a very VERY startled Yuuki and possibly a scream. If you are there, she's standing outside in the light of the dome sun and staring down at her arms, utterly mystified. She doesn't look to be her normal self though. In fact...like an additional light or prism she shines, twinkling brightly. Further lighting the area she reels, completely at a loss for words, and more than a bit freaked and weirded out. This is her skin after all.]

Why- Why am I sparkling!?

[Guess who has set up shop in the middle of Marina in a convenient location near you? She's just sparkling brightly and possibly staring your way as she waits for customers. There's writing on her magnificent sign, though a portion of it has been scribbled out and rewritten. She's learned that certain tactics don't work so perhaps THIS will help clarify and people will be more liable to come to her as needed. With all of the sudden new arrivals surely there are some that are in need of a healed heart.]

What is this place? I don't recall any city like this in Kimlasca.

[ there's a lot of blue. ] Is it possible that this is Malkuth?

If anyone can hear me, please answer! It is imperative that I return to Kimlasca immediately. I have no wish for the two countries to be at odds again, but Father will surely take my disappearance as a kidnapping!

[You can see a smiling Euphie and a floating, purple ball next to her. It's clear from the background they are in the park.]

Hello everyone.

Hello! Hello!

[Giggles.] I guess Morgan wanted to say hello too. [Smiles] I was thinking of making a request to Acumen, but I wanted to get everyone's feedback first. I'd like to request playground equipment for a section of the park. I thought it would be nice since we have some younger inmates here and because you're never too old to enjoy a swing set or a slide. Does anyone have any preferences on types things?

Oh! I have a request for Jun, Zelda, Jalyt, and Jennifer if you all have a moment to talk.
