[Naoya sighs, looking a little uncomfortable with his knees pulled up to his chest. He looks into the camera and raises an eyebrow. He's been thinking about it again for a while… and he's curious what others think.]

They say blood is thicker than water, but is it too thick to kill? Brothers, sisters… even parents. When is it acceptable to kill those who are these kinds of relations?

[Should someone want to confront him about this directly, Naoya can be found in one of the lounges, sitting on the couch.]

[Subaru appears on the communicator, and looks distressed. More than that, for those familiar with him-- he looks older. His hair is shorn short, he's foregone the gloves that previously he always wore, and he seems a little... frantic.]

Hokuto-chan? I-- [I remember you dying, but he doesn't, he can't? Yesterday was-- yesterday was too many things, and thinking about it is making his head hurt and his stomach churn.]

Are you there? And-- Kamui?


[he tries to focus for a moment, but it's hard, when he keeps thinking of things and people and events and he's not sure what's going on.]

I'm sorry. I don't-- feel well. My, my head-- there's-- [he falters a little.]

I'm sorry for the interruption.

[he fumbles with the communicator like he's not sure how to work it for a moment, before he shuts the feed off.]

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.

[this chap on screen might look familiar to you. he's got a familiar haircut, and you might recognize the familiar green eye, but then his other eye is a different color entirely-- brown!--, and he's awful tall... and he's wearing an awful lot of black.]

Ah-- Hokuto-chan, I-- I need your help! [he looks a little frazzled, rubbing his head. his voice has deepened out a little, too.]

--I, um-- something happened-- none of my clothes fit-- and I think maybe I-- I'm not me anymore! [Subaru sounds truly distressed by this prospect, and hasn't quite parsed that it's less 'not himself' and more 'abruptly older'.]

--Oh! I'm, um, I'm Subaru! Does anyone know what happened? I-- I haven't done anything unusual!

[and then, a little tentatively;] The store here has gloves, right? [pity the pair he initially had; they suffered quite the death during his horrified flailing and snagged on the door frame. sleep in, get candy, abruptly be older, BE very confused... flail about like you have no sense.]

[The video feed clicks on to a small, black-hired Japanese boy looking very perturbed with his situation looking at the camera. He has a now over-sized shirt clutched around him like a blanket.]

... does anyone know where I can find a store that has kid's clothing? [He voice then drops to a barely distinct mumble.] I'm Kamui. I think that candy did something to me.

[Then he reaches out and turns the feed off.]

[ look, Marina, it's a tsunpire walking a kitten. though, more like he's walking and she's wandering, stopping and napping or playing with a leaf or bathing herself whenever she feels like it.

they have eventually made it to where the pumpkins are. May climbs on them and chews on some of the stems. Kamui alternates between watching her play and explore, and wondering what in the world pumpkins have to do with anything.

eventually, though, he pulls his communicator out. ]

[It's been another busy day, from breakfast on through his chores, but now he's back in his room and left alone with his thoughts about how everything has gone wrong back home. Anyone else might seek out someone to talk to about it, but Moji is not anyone else, and that's the last thing he wants. Instead, he picks a neutral topic to engage people. He chooses voice to hide the obvious bags under his eyes, hoping to avoid questions about his well-being.]

I'm curious about the passage of time here. I've heard a few people say it seems to move more slowly here than in their home world, and I wondered about your theories on that. Is it that time really does move differently on this world, or just a side effect of being taken from our daily lives and responsibilties and having so much more time on our hands?

We may never know the truth, of course, but it's interesting to think about.

[The video shows a confused looking Japanese man in his mid-twenties, blinking at the screen from behind large glasses. He beams as he realises he's managed to get the device to work, speaking cheerfully.]

Ah! I was beginning to think this wasn't working. Perhaps it would be useful to provide clear instructions to make it easier for us to work these? After all, an old man such as myself struggles to understand all this modern technology. I'm afraid I've fallen too far behind the times.

On geography, too, it would seem. I've never heard of the Eloquois Ocean before. I wonder whereabouts it's located? It seems rather an odd place for a prison. Although perhaps you are used to it here.

[ooc: Action is also available for those I've talked about it with.]

-- thing on? [There’s a boy on the screen, both confused and very annoyed. Must be a new guy.] Pretty nice for a prison if they’re giving away free, weird toys to their prisoners.

Hey! Anyone listening? How can I get in touch with the guy in charge about my place here? Not that I’m surprised to find myself in prison, but they could’ve at least put me inside the right one.

[...Okay, now that's new. If not, then something other inmates haven't heard in a while.]

Unless his royal highness did something... [Muttering to himself before it turns into grumbles.] …even if I doubt that.

Hey, anyone seen a girl with short red hair and a big, round guy that answers to Faylen and Faylon? If you two are here, you guys better let me know! [A bit of concern can be heard and seen from him. That first, dealing with this stupid chain and ball later.]

[A man is standing just outside of the hospital with a paper in his hands; it's one of the pamphlets. He frowns--or rather, his frown deepens--as he looks over it and finally crumples the paper and drops it into the basket at his feet. His clothing is severe to match his expression, black with the occasional silver accent and a silver wolf's head prominently displayed on the pauldron secured over his left shoulder. There's a military feel to him, not just in the way he dresses, but in the way he holds himself. Although he's small, his bare arms are lean and toned, and even his smallest movements display the unconscious grace of a highly trained swordsman. Most noticeable, however, is the vivid, unnatural luminescence of his blue eyes.]

This is ridiculous. If I need to be tried for breaking the law, let someone on my own planet do it. "Assault on a superior officer"? You're honestly holding me for attacking Sephiroth? What happened to self-defense?

Look. I don't care if you think you're doing the right thing and holding dangerous criminals. I do care that there are two kids back in Edge who're expecting me home tonight, and you're sending an impostor in my place. Denzel and Marlene are quick. What happens when they notice he's not me?

[ooc: Might have to backdate replies tomorrow, but I needed to get this up while I had space to breathe! The week's crazy already.

So it's true...

[At first all that broadcasts is a soft, thoughtful male voice, but this is soon followed by a delicate young face framed by shaggy golden brown hair. Anyone who saw Nakama's picture of the pilots hanging in her living room just might recognise him. His eyes are gentle, totally unfrightened, and he speaks with a measured calm that doesn't seem to be at all forced.]

Hello, everyone. My name is Kunihiko Moji, and I just got here. I'd like to thank the people who made the basket and the pamphlet, since they've helped me figure out most of what's happened, but I do have a question for anyone who might have more information on these doubles who were apparently sent to replace us? Any help would be appreciated.

[A brief pause, and then, a bit more seriously:] And if any of my friends are here, I'd like to talk to you. I think there's something you should know.

I hope there were no hard feelings. [He wasn't being sincere and he sounds pretty worn out.]

I don't feel like sleeping. [Yaaaaaaawn.]

Talk to me. Just try not to bore the fuck out of me, okay? [That was his way of saying he was willing to listen to whatever. Anything to stay awake...]

((ooc: Okay I'm going to be breaking up the Action logs into separate comments. One for the DF folks who dragged him in so they can talk to him, one for VISITORS(??) if there are any, and one for late at night for the lucky sap assigned to watch him.))

[Wherever he is probably does not have a lot of ventilation, because there's a lot of smoke floating around Gilbert's head, being emitted from the cigarette handing out of his mouth. He seems pretty out of it, like something unpleasant just occurred, but then his face returns to being neutral.]

In case any of you care, Xerxes Break and Liam Lunettes are no longer in the dome.

[If someone didn't know him, they would see someone who obviously doesn't care one way or the other about the information he just gave. But truthfully, he didn't feel very good about it. He doesn't like Break, no... But they're friends. And somehow...everything is easier with Break around, if not far more annoying. It's easier...to be relaxed when Break is here. And now he's not here anymore.

Gilbert, truth be told, is not happy to see him go.]

[The call had been rather unexpected. But he had told Karen at prom that he had no intention of ever just leaving Kamui alone, so she must have felt the need to act. It was kind of funny, really. She had to have known she wasn't nearly strong enough to fight against him, the other "Kamui", but she had been determined. Besides, Fuuma was bored enough that he wasn't going to turn down a fight, if she was offering.]

[It was three minutes after Karen had raised her kekkai that the barrier started to dissolve. Kamui would probably show up shortly, since he could feel the barriers being raised and breaking, but no matter. As for the Defense Force, well... who knew if they would show up or not.]

[They had ended up in a street, where the pink haired woman was slumped against a building, out cold. Fuuma had previously thrown her against said building hard enough to cause a decent sized crater to form there, but thanks to the kekkai, the damage seemed to have been kept out of this existence. Now all that was left was the tall teenager walking over to the woman's collapsed figure. She had a few visible cuts and scrapes, but it was likely something was broken. Fuuma hadn't made it out scot-free this time though. Both of his hands and forearms looked to be badly burned and the bottom half of his badass long coat was gone. He didn't looked pained at all, just contemplative of what he should do. She was a Dragon of Heaven and he would likely have killed her in Tokyo, but here...]

((OOC: Okay, reworked this post a bit in light of Val being a good student and having to drop some characters. Karen won't be replying to anything, as she is KO'd, and will be disappearing after being taken to the hospital and what not. So this post will be closed to Kamui Shirou, Subaru Sumeragi and Subaru Nakajima, unless someone else would like in on the DF end of things.))

[For those that know Hokuto the scene will be an unfamiliar one. There are clothes on the bed and floor, precious outfits that are now wrinkled, disarranged and no longer coordinated. Worse yet it seems that the drawers match as well with several articles of clothing hanging out of each and nothing hidden.

Hokuto seems to twitch for a few moments not saying anything as the anger seems to build. Almost distorting the area around her when she finally burts, hopefully you weren't still trying to sleep. If so maybe her twin will apologize because she won't be doing it.]

It's one thing to take what doesn't belong to you but to touch a girl's clothes and leave them like this. . . IT'S UNFORGIVABLE!

I realize that theft is a crime and that we're in a prison, but this this is a million times worse than just taking something. And whoever did it deserves to die a million times over!

[The feeds end with her picking up an artcle of clothing and throwing it angryly.]

Upon entering Sector 4, the very large tent that stands framed by the beach is quickly noticeable. Closer, one can see colors dancing upon the white sheets, like opalesque spires under the moving onyx sky. As you enter one of the wings of the tents, grass give way to wooden flooring, and chains of white blossoms and gold ribbons line the sides. The open dance floor in the center bids one to look up to whimsical white-gold lamps, balls of light dancing in seas of violet, blue, green and pink organza. The fabrics fall down pillars adorned with leaves and flowers. Tables set in white and gold with jewel toned flowers sit at the four wings surrounding the dance floor.

... but it is far too early to take a seat. Smile and greet your fellow attendee, take the hand of a friend, and dance to the music.

Welcome to Marina Academy's First Promenade!

There are large tables with finger foods and punch (not spiked -- save it for the after-party!), and very little space near the walls (sorry, wallflowers! You won't get away so easily. )  After a large number of people are gathered together, Jeanne stands up on the small stage set to the side of the dance floor and taps on the microphone to get everyone's attention...

+ Info post / thread index (please read this first!)
+ Jeanne's greeting speech!
+ Prom King and Queen announcement. (Spoiler: It's Euphie and Kanda.)

[Who has two thumbs and feels like playing nice? THIS GUYYYYY!]

It has occurred to me that, while I was MIA, Tono and Kyouya-senpai — Daddy and Mommy respectively — have been hard at work, getting us new Host Club members. That being said, it means I haven't properly met any of you. Shouldn't Mommy and Daddy's children all know each other?


I'm Hikaru Hitachiin, Host Club veteran. If Tono's pissing you off, and Kyouya-senpai is being scary, there's always the Hitachiin brothers and Mori-senpai! Fufufu~.

The Host Club would like to extend a welcome to all the new inmates arriving today. [Have a polite smile.] We sincerely hope your transition into your new accommodations proceeds smoothly and efficiently.

If you find yourself interested in meeting your fellow inmates, there are several events upcoming that may be of interest to you.

Miss Kohran Li has assembled a Talent Show this evening to be held in Sector 4, featuring dancing, singing, and a variety of other talents. And tomorrow will be the Marina Academy's first promenade, to be held in the park in Sector 4. Formal dress is expected.

[And because no announcement is ever complete if it doesn't include an advertisment for the Host Club:]

For those of you planning to attend prom, the Host Club will be in the Athletic Complex if you should require basic dancing lessons, advice on the latest fashions, and anything else you might need to prepare for the upcoming event.

[And Kyouya + various other people will be at the athletic complex, ready to do what they do best.]

((ooc: Sort of spur-of-the-moment (sorry Host Club!) so current members needn't tag in if they don't want (we can always handwave or whatnot). Otherwise, general mingle post.))

[Here Marina! Have a Liam appear on the screen, leaning against a tree in the park with bandages around his head and on his cheek and looking generally very annoyed. Annoyance tends to be common when you wake up in a hospital and don’t quite remember falling asleep there.

He’s got his glasses in one hand and he’s scrubbing furiously at them with a cloth in the other, but he doesn’t put them on just yet, despite the fact that he has to squint into the camera to see anything.]

Things seem to be much less chaotic today than they were before.

[He has to close his eyes and think for just a moment before speaking again. He doesn’t remember when exactly that happened, because everything is jumbled together with memories of events from home.]

Tell me, are things like doubles of the inmates here a common occurrence? That doesn’t seem like the sort of thing that would be very easy to adjust to no matter how long a person has been here.

[He adjusts himself on the tree so that he’s in a more comfortable position, closes his eyes again and bows his head slightly.]

I believe that is all for now. If you all would excuse me I think it would be wise if I were to find a place to rest.
