[Hear that sound? It's the sound of a foot hitting a wall, repeatedly. A girl's gotta work her aggression out somehow, you know? Not like the wall's going to feel anything, anyhow. ENJOY THE SHOW MARINA.

After a few mildly satisfying minutes, Taiga gives up, breathing heavily, face flushed, hair in disarray, hands clenched into fists at her sides.]

A life sentence? You expect me to believe that? You expect me to give in quietly? I refuse.


[No she isn't on the verge of tears what are you talking about.]

[Naoto looks considerably confused, all things considered. One hand is on her hat, tugging it down into place, adding to her boyish image, and she frowns a little. the date is wrong. she's fairly certain the date is wrong, but-- she'll ask. it's all she can do, at the moment.]

Is it really the 135th day? [her voice is a little uncertain, but her tone is still crisp and businesslike. she cuts the feed, not quite sure how to phrase any other questions she has.]
03 October 2011 at 07:14 pm
[A voice comes on to the feed, quiet and a bit shaky.]
Um, is this really a prison?

It's...nothing like the prisons I've seen pictures of back home. Prisons are supposed to have cells, and metal bars, and everyone...wears...jumpsuits.

[She gives a little, quivery sigh.]

If you've really sent a double in my place, I really hope she does a good job.

I was kind of in the middle of saving...a whole lot of people. Maybe everyone in the world.

[She quietly adds, mostly to herself:] Even then, on my birthday?

[The feed shows the small red-headed Yuta. He's on his way to the Convenience store in Sector Five to find a few supplies. He takes note of the places around, he might visit. For now, focus on the task at hand.]

By the way, has anyone here played any sports?

[Private to Inara]
Inara-neechan, when you're not busy do you think you could come help me plan out some things to get to settle in?

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.)

[There's a girl sitting cross-legged on top of one of the Guardian Sapling's tree roots this morning. Video is also on, if you're not in the area. She's probably unfamiliar at first, but then you may notice the red markings on her face, arms and legs, the very obvious wolf ears and tail...

Ammy the human laughs lightly, pleased with herself]
My, my~ It's been some time since I've been in this form! [She lightly gets to her feet, tail swishing slightly. Her clothes are simple, yet elegant, and even though it's been a few hundred years, she's as confident on two feet as she is on four]

I must remember to thank Acumen for this. But first I think this will require some exploring~ [And definitely some meeting up with people, if she can find them. This will be fun~]

((OOC: Tags may be slow for awhile, but rest assured I will get back to all of them!))
Evening | Sector 4 | THE MARINA TALENT SHOW
09 September 2011 at 01:16 am
[ Thanks to Acumen's intervention, there is now a stage set up in one of the bigger parks in Sector 4. Volunteers and bots are bustling about making sure everything's in place and are helping spectators to their seats. Talents are backstage, making sure their costumes are alright, voices warmed up, instruments properly tuned and strung.

Please make yourselves comfortable, gentlepersons and gentlecreatures, as you all celebrate a night of music and laughter at the Marina Talent Show.

The night is not quite over as refreshments are also provided, and the equipment are still available for use, should you be inspired to pic up the mic for some prose or song, or dance to the lingering music~ ]

[ Performance ] - for performers so as critics and fans can tag with their appreciation.

[ As she opened her eyes, anesthetics wearing off, there were but three thoughts in Sasha's mind: how to thank those who have helped her, and how can she help Medusa? For the latter, she may not be the Athena the woman had known, but she is Athena nonetheless.

And third, how to tell her friends of what had transpired and convince them to not worry -- or perhaps she can hope that they did not know, they do not have to know.

She shifts on the hospital bed and winced at the pain on her legs, side and forearm, and took a moment to quietly admire the fast medical work. She then tries to sit on the side of the bed. Perhaps if she tried to summon her healing, she might be able to leave before the day ended -- or perhaps that was not a very good idea. She tries to step off, quietly as she can, to head towards the door, or just to explore the room. ]

(( *OOC: Action open to DF members and those who have reason to be in the hospital. To avoid time paradox, first tagger will be the one to spot her to convince her to get back to bed; the rest will have to be "visitors" throughout the day. :3 ))

[ Sasha had woken up early -- hair braided back, dressed in a simple white shirt, pants and flat shoes. There was still plenty of time before the Swordsmanship Class in the afternoon. However, she feels that she needs more time to sort out her emotions, her thoughts, so as better to concentrate on the class' tasks.

In a kneeling position, she takes slow, measured breaths to summon the tiring, if not calming effect of her Cosmo, and shutting out the world even if just for a moment... ]

[ Do you like ice cream, Marina? Probably not as much as Subaru.

You see, she's sitting at the front of the ice cream shop, staring down what you hope is her first and only ice cream cone, as it's completely stacked with multiple different flavors.

And then it happens. She opens her mouth wide and completely devours the top scoop; there is barely a trace of it left on top of the one below it, on the stack. Subaru pauses, wincing the slightest bit before releasing the cold breath from between her lips with an ecstatic sound. ]

This is pretty good! [ Hey! She deserved it after the training this morning. She's still wearing her full gear, too: skates, glove, barrier jacket and all. ]

[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!

[The screen is turned on to show a white ‘creature’ staring down at it. What exactly that creature is... Part rabbit? Part pork bun? Some genetic mutation? None of the above.]

Hey! Hey! Listen up! Somebody's got things all wrong! Mokona's not a criminal!

[Mokona’s little arms are crossed and there is a slight glare, although Mokona really isn’t that threatening looking although Mokona is trying to be.]

Mokona didn't travel, but Mokona woke up here! But Mokona doesn't remember how Mokona got to this place. And Mokona shouldn't be here. Kurogane was happy to share his food with Mokona so it wasn't stealing! And Mokona only wriggles around inside people's clothing because that's how Mokona communicates!

[An angry little noise.] Is this because Mokona is so popular? Mokona shouldn't be locked up because of that! And where’s Fay and Kurogane and everyone else? Iyaaaa. Did they get locked up too? Kuro-puu is a monster sometimes and s~c~a~r~y but Mokona doesn't think that he should be locked up either.

[A small noise.] Puu! And Mokona was being good and waiting for Syaoran to come back, but everything has changed again, and Mokona doesn’t think it is another dream world… but Mokona also senses a lot of strange things here…

[Rider has her chains off. And she is very, very happy about that. Now she doesn't have to constantly look over her shoulder and spend her time in paranoia of the bots rounding her up.]

[Are you near the training hall or the athletic complex? She'll just alternating between 1) figuring out which of her powers have been nerfed, and 2) trying to figure a good way to keep that lovely chain thing of hers summoned without draining her prana to 0%.]

((OOC: Thread with Yui will be before she goes to the training grounds, and that's closed. Otherwise it's open~))

((OOC #2: She's also wearing her blindfold/that stripper-tastic fighting outfit, so there's no confusion.))

[What with the new arrivals, Kohran is not missing this chance to rope people in for a special little project~ She is currently at one of the classrooms in the Education Center armed with her notebook and opens the feed. Have a cheerful face and voice greet you today~]

Good morning everyone!

I've noticed that Marina has some talented singers and musicians, and I was thinking we can hold a little talent show! With so many people coming from different worlds, I feel that there's a big talent pool here, and it'll be an opportunity to share something from your world and have fun at the same time!

So! Would anyone be interested in participating or do you know someone who might want to participate?

[Alexis looks a little nervous when the feed clicks on, but she gives a smile and a little wave to the screen.]

Um-- hi, everyone! I was just wondering if-- there was anyone else who... maybe wanted a roommate? Or wanted to be roomates! I've, uh, I got a house that I like, but it's really lon-- empty! And I thought it'd be nice if there was anyone else who was maybe looking for a place to stay, or wanted some company... [she trails off for a second, looking a little uncertain, and then--]

I'm really clean, and I cook a lot, and I read a lot, so I wouldn't bother you all the time! [those are all really good roommate qualities, right?] And I don't have any animals of my own, but I don't mind them!

So... let me know, okay? Thanks!

Here's a thought. If you find a loop hole on how to beat the system, how about you go ahead and don't talk about it over the network like an idiot.

Just a little public service announcement from me to you. Hold the applause. I'll blush.

[Good day to make friends?]

(OOC: Feel free to run into Kitty out and about if you'd like. She'll be hitting up the training hall and the shelter kitchen for some breakfast and some random points in between.)

[cheery face pops up on the feed~! It can be seen that she's moving, as the background slowly moves~]

Ne, ne, everyone! Heeey!

I just met a new person, and she has this REALLY heavy ball and chain with her! It's so heavy, that when she drags it with her, it makes this really loud screeeeeching sound!

So, um! Can someone help take it off of her? [derp. Yui still doesn't know her name yet.]
Location: On the way to Kiosk, Sector 2 towards 1. Early afternoon.

[The video flickers on to reveal Sebastian bending over and placing something on a long table. Once he's standing it is easy to see that the table is nearly completely filled with foods of all different types, both fancy and common. His attention is focused on both the camera and some place that's out of the camera's view - he takes his attention from that for a moment, though to address the camera with a smile.]

Good morning, everyone. How are you all? You will have to forgive my interruption to your day, especially to those newcomers who are most certainly distressed at their current situation. I do hope you all will grow accustomed quickly and find comfort in knowing that this is hardly the worst place you could find yourself. Perhaps you will find some comfort in what I am about to say.

[He moves the camera a little so that the focus is more on the food than himself, though he's still visible in the corner of the shot.]

I would like to invite anyone who has yet to eat their morning meal to the Phantomhive mansion in sector five. It seems that Young Master has taken his leave from the prison and so I have made too much food to simply allow it to go to waste. This isn't only for the people who have only arrived today, of course; those who have been here for a longer period of time are most certainly welcome as well. There should be enough food here for everyone who decided to join me.

((OOC: Might be a little slow since I'm doing this from my phone, but I really wanted to put this up.))

[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?
