[ Tyr hasn't used this to just talk to people as a whole in a while, so his tone is somewhat awkward. ]

Now that we're done being shuffled around...is there anywhere to stay other than this shelter? I assume there aren't a lot of empty houses around, but I'm not that picky as long as it's not as busy at this place.

Also--If Suzaku of the Defense Force is listening, I want to speak with you.

[The video clicks on and a certain troll is visible glaring into the camera. First noticeable thing about her though (besides, you know, the grey skin and candycorn-looking horns) is the fact that one of her eyes infact had seven pupils. She was not happy in the least bit, and her expression surely showed this.]

Really, I've been arrested? Terezi, if you expected me not to know this was your stupid sort of joke then woooooooow because it is SUPER obvious you would be behind this sort of thing!

I won that coin flip fair and square, I guess you just couldn't handle losing to someone as fortunate as me.

[Vriska paused and looked down, she was admiring the heavy ball and chain attached to her leg. It was sort of impressive that Terezi would go that far, but at the same time it really annoyed her since it prevented her from flying. But, was Terezi that fearful of her getting away? It made the troll scoff, a smirk plastered upon her face now.]

Did you really have to go all-out like this and attempt to keep me grounded? I'm sure I'll find a way out of this thing soon though.

Soooooooo I guess I can give it to you that it was a nice effort on your part.
[MINGLE / Open to ALL] Snowball Fight in Sector 4!
11 January 2012 at 07:35 pm
[ Wandering around the snowy park? There are two things to look out for: (1) don't trip over the bright orange ropes that close off a large open area, (2) take cover and watch for a stray snowball, and (3) ... you know, you might want to join in for this is a Snowball Fight.

Only guidelines: no weapons, no head shots, no stuffing snow down someone's mouth, collar or anywhere else uncomfortable. Play to your heart's content! Spoiler: there's no winner.

Warm drinks and snacks are served in a nearby tent (ah, thank goodness for space heaters!), while towels and blankets are also available. You might want to take advantage of the snow as well -- make snowmen, snow angels, your own sculpture as you wind down~ ]

[Today is quieter around the shelter -- and there's less food. It's getting kind of cramped in here, isn't it? And boring. There are plenty of games and entertainments left over from the party, but everyone is gathered together and... finding things to do.]

[So what are you doing?]

It's been nearly two weeks, now. Really- I've tried to be understanding. Crime must meet punishment for the functioning of society, as weak as this punishment truly is. Corrective containment without the reinforcement is all you need in a bubble full of petty thieves and murderers wet behind the ears.

It was quite cute, nearly charming for oh, say, the first few days. I laughed because jokes are meant to be funny, and I certainly didn't want to offend. That would be rude, and a princess minds her manners.


Surely the Almighty would find its time better spent dealing with crimes of a higher caliber.

I tire of all this camaraderie, this friendship that spoils even the bloodiest of hands. Punishment is most effective under fear, power, and brutal authority. You crush until the prisoners can no longer crawl on their own. How I hate to see all this opportunity wasted.

Take pleasure in the relationships you have established here, my fellow criminals! Enjoy this peace- for it is only the eye of the storm! People are nothing more than pawns, and without the proper measure, even pawns will turn and strike.

Speak to me of kindness and of love if you so desire. Soon you will understand how worthless it is in the end- how easily loyalty can be tossed aside by fools!

It is nothing- do you hear me? Nothing!

[ooc | Azula is going off the deep-end. I apologize to everyone I didn't tag in my last post- but I'm getting out of that RP slump, now and I'm back with some fresh crazy :)]

[Sector 5 sees a lot of people over the course of a day. Many live there in houses or apartment complexes; many come there to shop for food or clothing; many come there to relax and have a meal; some even come for the entertainments offered by the bowling alley, the ice rink, or the Devil's Compass.]

[Everyone who might have passed through Sector 5 today is invited to thread out a chance encounter here, or a date, or a gathering of friends. Just tell everyone where your character is and what they're doing, and go!]

[somehow, Flynn ended up promising a certain Xerxes Break flowers and a cake. so this morning he meanders over to the park and surveys the gardens leisurely, walking through them and ducking down conscientiously to pick some of the flowers every now and again, slowly arranging a generous bouquet]

[once he has his flowers picked out, he heads to the shelter kitchen and finds a nice cup to put them in with a little water. then he gets out all the ingredients to start baking a cake from scratch. he decides there's no need for the cookbook. he knows how cakes are made, after all]

[he'll just... modify the recipe a little...]

[and when he's done, it'll be time to go find Break and present him with his rewards!]

((ooc: come find him in either location and ask him who his lovely date is! :D or give him funny looks for picking the flowers and massacring perfectly good cake batter. either way. Val can put up an action tag whenever and I'll have Flynn call Break to meet up with him))

[ oh hai, Marina. guess who ate some of those strawberry gummies? yeeeeep.

his expression is so very clinical, young brown eyes peering into the communicator. he murmurs ]

Yes, that would be expected.

[ he shifts the communicator and the video swings around; he's now looking at the device upside-down, pressing buttons curiously. private flickers briefly on screen, then off again. he turns the communicator back around again and utters ]


[ his voice is almost monotone, and he does not smile. ]

((ooc: Ahhhh so late!! But it's still "Halloween". :D So, come poke tiny Jade. He also has amnesia, so. This is Jade as an actual child. And if you've spoken to him before, his eyes are normally red.))

[Why does he do this to himself? Really? Why does he? There wasn't any food in his apartment so he has to leave in order to get food. He hadn't liked having dog ears before, but he has them again. He's hoping that a haro won't cross his path since the last time he had the urge to chase them]

[As he's walking, he's staying close the buildings trying to stay hidden from sight]

[Some people may not notice anything. Others may hear the sound of small feet, but not see where they came from. Turn your head too fast and you might just see the tiny figure quickly dodging into the shadows of a building, wild hair all over and pants far too big being held up by a long white ribbon. It's chilly, but she's not wearing shoes.

Some may recognize the hair--or the clothes--but she doesn't recognize anyone. Miranda just wants to go home, but she's too afraid to ask any of the strange adults for help.]

[ Good morning Marina~!

Were you sleeping alone last night? Well now you have company!

Were you sleeping with someone? Well, you're still sleeping with someone, but maybe you'd like to give it a look-see, before you get too comfortable.

Are you sure this is your room? You might want to check though -- who knows if you're using the same design of lampshade or if your bed really is set up against the wall...

Whether you are in your own room or not, one thing's for certain, you're in for a surprise this morning! ]

(( OOC: Many pardons for the late, but here be your Morning After Prank all-purpose post! Do your threads here if you are so inclined, or make your network freak-out posts~ Have fun!

ETA: I have used the reveal table as a handy Thread Index. I'll update this as the event rolls along [last updated: 22 October, 12:40 p.m. EST] ))

I don't think I can actually stand another day of this... [ His voice is strained as he tries to catch his breath. ] I know this is supposed to be some kind of a prison, but this... This is excessive.

[ He pauses, then adds: ] Not everyone that was here yesterday is here today, at least... It's weird when I think about it. I know why I'm stuck like this, but I don't understand what other criteria people are held to when they're chained like this; it doesn't really add up. There wasn't really a binding similarity in the kind of people we are.

...I guess it doesn't matter once we're released, though, does it? Aside from all this, everyone seems pretty free...
12 October 2011 at 02:29 am
Is the voice from before still here? The one who talked to me?

I tried to think of what I did wrong, but I still don't know... I haven't hurt anyone. Am I really in a "prison"? Does this mean I can't help humans anymore?

All I want to do is to help... I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

Oh, how adorable. Really, the first ten minutes were quite charming. I'm still impressed someone managed to get me down here for a supposedly elaborate and ingenious little prank.

Because it isn't proper to actually imprison a princess, as I'm sure you're aware - especially the princess of the great Fire Nation. I could crush you all with a wave of my hand before you could even begin to bow before me and beg-- however, I'm feeling... generous today. I'm a forgiving princess, after all. I'm kind. I will even humor you!

[A pause as she clears her throat.]

Ha ha ha!

[The laugh sounds...almost psychotic with a mix of awkward. But in her mind she is laughing at the joke! It's funny! She's amused!

She stops abruptly.]

But I trust you all know when a joke goes too far- so I'll spare you the effort and end it for you. Now-- come forward. I expect a full report. And since you transported me underwater in the first place, it should be no problem for you to get me out.

[ This voice is both annoyed and confident. She's not pleased to be here, but she's not going to let anyone know that she's a little uncertain too. ] I am so tired of being kidnapped. I mean, at least these people are better at it than the last ones, but this whole thing is just sad. I can't believe I've been arrested again. I didn't even feel them coming. [ There's a pause and then she repeats it to herself again, as if disbelieving. ] Didn't feel a thing...

Plus, I want to know who came up with these charges. So I put a few holes in the wall and ran away from people who tried to lock me up. No one mentioned that I helped save the world too? Doesn't that count in my favor? Maybe Katara would like this underwater thing, but I'm not buying it. [ She's a bit sulky, don't mind her. There's another hesitation, because she's letting her irritation get away with her, and finally she sighs and makes herself sound more cheerful, more normal. ]

At least the food in the basket was good. What kind of prison has a welcome committee?

This one, I guess. So, tell me, strangers, what are you in for?
