[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.]

Don't you all think that Acumen would be a lot nicer if it were in love~?

[So, bright and early, Tobias is in the Defense Force headquarters, perched on a desk.]

[Yep. Perched. He's in bird form right now, watching the door. He's really pissed off at Acumen right now, so he'll just be in bird form for a while to sulk.]

[Never mind that birds can't really pull off facial expressions that well.]

[ It’s getting to be later in the evening, and for once, he’s considering sleep. There are no nicotine patches to keep him occupied, and the world right now is dull, dull, dull. He needs something stimulating, and the communicator is right there... Normally, he’s not given to speaking to people unless they have information. This is no exception. ]

[ Those listening to the open feed will hear the dark voice pouring through their headset, smokey and slow with the weight of his dilemma. ]

Good evening, Marina Asylum.

Before you ask, yes, I am one of those new inmates assimilated into the fold by your monotonous overlord. However, I’m not interested in preaching my woes of incarceration. I am comfortable with the charges that have been weighed against me and regret nothing.

My name is Sherlock Holmes.

I’ve spent the day exploring your facilities. Anthrax Island, indeed. However, what I’ve seen of you brings questions to mind, those of which I would like to bring to your attention.

Oh mom...

[The screen jostles, tilting up as a small thump is heard. Kneeling on the ground, long brown hair sweeps the pavement below as a young girl falls to her knees in defeat.]

I... I realize that setting up camp on private property is wrong, but I never imagined how serious the offense! [Dark eyes swirling she reels dizzily, head spinning] I don't even remember there being any pressed charges. I'm the worst. Such an idiot! The lowest of low. To think that the Sohma allowed such a hardened criminal into their home.


I'd punish me too.

[It's raining and Lelouch is being a homebody, staying indoors and playing chess with himself idly. He's been thinking about this next move for quite some time, and it seems like now is as good a time as any... He flips on the communicator, relaxing and smiling into the video.]

You know, I was just thinking. Who else made secret codes or hand gestures as children? Like a phrase that sounded innocent but meant "Let's go meet outside," or a gesture that meant "Check up on that for me."

Maybe I'm the only one who thought in such complicated terms as an eight-year-old. [chuckling] But it was fun knowing that only we would understand.

[Acumen can hear them over the network, and possibly records the content of everything it translates through video. But unspoken hand gestures and phrases that don't mean what they sound like they mean are much more difficult to uncover in surveillance, aren't they?]

[There is a comically overburdened loli squirming her way in the front door of the DF HQ, holding trays of veggie sticks, fruit, and other assorted terribly healthy foods. Given that it's raining, she's come all this way balancing an umbrella to keep her and her bounty more or less dry-ish.

The mission today? Feed the DF healthy immune boosting food so they won't catch ill in the rain. As she finally gets inside, she manages somehow to turn her communicator on:

[Filtered to Defense Force]
If anyone wants a yummy snack, I've brought lots and lots to headquarters. If you're on patrol in another sector and want one, I can bring something out to you. Thank you for all your hard work, everyone!

[Here, Marina. Have a Mitsuru in your face. She's looking very composed, seriously, and pointedly clean of any colors. She draws in a small breath before speaking.]

Now that the day's celebration has come to a close, I was hoping someone could spare a few minutes to answer a question of mine.

It's to my knowledge there's an organization here called the "Defense Force." Given the circumstances, I've had little time to properly question this group and its activities; I can assume the name explains itself well, but I'd like to know more about it, in any case.

Merci beaucoup.

[With a nod, she cuts the feed. Once she's done with this, Mitsuru sits straight, one leg crossed over the other as she waits for the others to arrive. Her eyes kept focused, mentally going over all of the things that needed to be discussed once Akihiko, Ryoji and Yukari got there.]

[Zinda's sitting at a table in the shelter in uniform, her boots up on the table, looking particularly displeased.]

So, what's the deal with how many kids are here? I don't mind 'em of course, some of them seem pretty dang bright and all, but i can't help but feelin' like it's wrong. Like the robot runnin' this place don't have his head screwed on right.

If he has a head, I mean. Dang technology. [She rolls her eyes, and the feed cuts off. But you can find her there for a good part of the afternoon, doing nothing in particular.]
05 April 2011 at 10:28 am
Excuse me-- [She smiles into the camera, a bright and innocent smile.]

I know it's a little rude to ask, and you don't have to answer me if you wouldn't like, but could you tell me about the person you love?
05 April 2011 at 01:16 am
Good morning boys and girls! We do hope you've slept well! [because they haven't slept at all.] We have a proposition for you, hmm? [Have a large, eerily grinning face in your video, Marina!]

How many of you more rambunctious sorts would be interested in a fight club? An all out brawl between yourself and another! Everyone gets a turn! The only rules are no disabling injuries, and when someone surrenders, you back off!

We're still working out the kinks, but for now, we'd like to just gather a headcount! Don't all pipe up at once! There'll be plenty of action for everyone! [they laugh]

[Deep, steadying breath.]

Hello, everyone. My name is Euphemia li Britannia for those of you I haven't met. [It feels like she needs another one of those deep, steadying breaths now, but she charges onward with nothing but sincerity and concern in her voice.]

I wanted to apologize to all of you for the horrible, unspeakable things I've said and done since I returned. I just want you to know I don't wish anyone harm, and I don't think any less of the Japanese. [She pauses here. It's hard to say all this with the way she is still fighting the geass back. Cross' sorcery had lessened the effect, but it hadn't removed it completely. It just made it manageable. Controllable.] I understand that I'll need to show this through my future actions as well as my words. If there is anything I can do to make amends, please don't hesitate to tell me.

I don't want to take up any more of your time. Thank you for listening, and once again. I'm deeply, deeply sorry to everyone and especially to those I threatened individually and Orihime.

[She hesitates a moment as if there is more she wants to say, but finally completes her broadcast with a soft click.]

[When Ciel first awakes, he feels that his day will be just as annoying as it usually would be. However, upon breakfast time, it became evident that his main annoyance was gone. With further investigation, he discovered that not only was Alois gone, but he wasn't even in the dome.

Now, Ciel feels that he should be happy about this. However, the young boy is very disgruntled. And the fact that he doesn't know why he's disgruntled just leaves him even angrier.

Too furious to sit still, Ciel ventured out to the butterfly pavilion, where he is now resting on a bench. In his hands is a bag of homemade chocolates that he never even opened. His eyes narrow, obviously irked.]

Tch. This is nothing but trash...

[Despite the fact that he says this, that bag of chocolates is still in his hands.]
The 107th Day
21 March 2011 at 09:02 pm
Good morning. Today is the 107th day of the third generation.

This system will shortly be installing a software update to the dome. No disruption will occur in the schedule of the supplies, in the atmospheric systems, or the remote units. However, a short blackout period of one hour will be exhibited in each sector while the update is implemented. This will occur during the day for minimal disruption of schedules, but please be aware that the electricity in your home may not be working for a brief window this morning.

The blackouts will be rolling, so if you find the electricity to not be working in your sector, and this is detrimental, you may relocate to an adjoining sector for the duration.

Sector 0 will be updated late tonight to ensure that the lights and elevators remain functional during peak hours.

Inmates Vriska Serket, Kanaya Maryam, Ken Hidaka, Hermione Granger, and Akito Wanijima, your requests are available by the entrance to Sector 0.

[OOC: Blackouts will occur in Sectors 1 to 6 in order during the morning/early afternoon and will only mean the electricity is off during this time. Old comments are being replied to now. Sorry for the delays everyone!]

[She's down at the memorial gardens, sitting by her tree again. After a particularly long talk with her mom, she's prompted to ask:]

What were - or are, I guess - your parents like?

[Then, thinking of Ushiro:]

I mean, unless they were really awful or it's complicated or something, in which case... I'm sorry I made you think about it. Just pretend I didn't say anything.

[If you'd like to meet with her, the park is visible in the background, so you know where she is. Othewise, video is go!]

[Standing outside the convenience store, Chibiusa is holding a basket full of what looks about necessary to make chocolates for Valentine's Day. White and milk chocolate and a little bottle of vanilla and all kinds of random things, some of which probably don't belong in chocolate, but she's not exactly all that great at this cooking thing.]

[She's also in a very girly pink sundress just to be on the safe side. She might not mind making chocolate with Alois, but she definitely doesn't want to get caught up in that one girl's Valentine's thing with him. Bouncing from one foot to the other, she looks back and forth, waiting for him to come so she can foist the basket off on him and drag him off for chocolate making.]

[[OOC: Sorry I took so long to put this up!]]

Um... hello everyone!

[It's taken Conan a little while to pull himself together enough to post this -- his first reaction at arriving was a mix of sheer incredulity at his 'crimes', and slowly growing anger at the malfunctional AI which brought him here.

Also at the chain and ball attached to his ankle. He's a detective, not a criminal. He chases and catches the bad guys! By what stretch of the imagination does he have any reason for being in here??

But he's a little calmer now, and able to pull up the trusty kiddie act to cover his real emotions.

Could someone help me? I'm not really sure what's going on, and this place is very strange! Is everyone here really criminals?

[There’s just sniffles at first, as a little girl tries to reconcile over 600 hours in her world with several days in interdimensional prison. She wishes the six hundred hours were just a dream, but her wrist is broken and splinted, which can only mean…

Suddenly, the whole prison gets to hear heartbroken wailing.]

Equiuuuuus! [It’s the only comprehensible word amongst the sobs.]

[Euphie has the network. She has her guards friends watching over her. She has visitors, but it still isn't the same as being free. It's strange to think she's been in a prison so long, but this is the only time she's really felt that way. Is this what others feel all the time in Marina? Do they feel caged even without the bars? Lonely even with the company?

Still, she is grateful she is inside the Defense Force's jail rather than somewhere she might hurt someone. She hopes her brother finds a way to fix things soon. She doesn't like being such a weight for any of them to carry, not that anyone has made her feel that way in the slightest.]

(OOC: I think this is backdated to day 103. It is closed to whomever is supposed to be here. I will update this if I learn different things!)

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]
