[It takes longer than it should, between the headache and the disorientation, but Conrad finally drags his suddenly mortal body through the streets and to the door of the only place he could think of to go.]

[It occurs to him, as he knocks on the door, that it's a bit late to be calling. It also occurs to him that he looks worse than terrible: his clothes soaked with snow and matted with dirt, his skin probably pale from pain and from not eating in weeks. What's most telling, though, is the small and shallow cut on his forehead. He incurred it quite a while ago, and it's still sluggishly bleeding.]

[After how he treated her, Conrad isn't even entirely sure that she'll let him inside. She'd be more than justified to shut the door in his face. But there isn't anywhere else.]

[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?]
[Video//Action | Open] BANQUET MINGLE GO!
20 December 2011 at 12:16 pm
Good morning, Marina! [Have a very smiley pink haired girl on your video feed!] For anyone I haven’t met, I’m Lacus Clyne and I’m very glad to meet you.

It seems as though we’re all going to be in the shelter today, so we should make the best of things. I was thinking that we should get together and have a big winter banquet! Anyone who wants to help cook should please feel free to come to the kitchens and assist, and if not you should still come and enjoy the food with us.

Dinner will be served at 5 in the main cafeteria, and after that maybe we could have fun playing games and watching movies together. I hope everyone has a good day, and I hope to see everyone at the feast!

[A few minutes later]

I just learned that today is also Ritsuka’s birthday! To celebrate there will be a cake and some special desserts and decorations. [as many decorations as they can find without access to the store.] Everyone please, stop by to wish him a happy birthday!

((OOC Notes: Mingle post, open to all! Reply to Lacus by [video] or there are several action options: [cooking] any time before 5pm ICly, [dinner] a huge buffet of almost anything you could want, or [after dinner] for card games, board games, and movies throughout the cafeteria and nearby common rooms! Your character is in no way obligated to be at all of these, but they could be if you want~

Also! A link to Ritsuka’s birthday party will be added once it goes up. There will be cake and lots of special desserts and pretty decorations in one area of the cafeteria.

If anyone wants to intentionally or unintentionally sabotage the food, please contact me OOCly before you do so. Thanks and ENJOY!))

[The smell of burning food quickly permeates the already stale air within the shelter. Zero is moving as quickly as he can through the hall back toward the kitchen on his floor, his ferret, Chanel, quickly chasing after him. His senses are much stronger than a typical human, allowing him to realize within moments that the food he'd expertly prepared was quickly being destroyed by the very amateur hands he'd left it in.]

[Stepping through the doorway, he beelines to the stove and reaches over the much smaller girl standing in front of the dish he'd prepared. Flipping the heat on the burner into the 'off' position, he gives the brunette a dark look of annoyance before taking the spatula from her hand.]

Step away from the food.

[Seriously, she did this every single time he handed over the reigns of the cooking to her for any amount of time. It didn't matter how simple the instructions, it happened without fail.]

I left you with two instructions. 'Don't touch anything. Just stir the meat every thirty seconds.' I don't know if I can salvage this, Yuuki.

[ooc: Come chat with either Yuuki or Zero and/or both of them.]

[Education Center, Music Hall. Today's lesson starts with the introduction of Zelda's new co-teacher, Sheik. The two of them go through the normal routine of reviewing the past lessons and starting new ones. Regular students are probably aware of this and have probably mastered a few basic songs by this point. They might also be the ones to notice that Zelda's not quite as lively today as usual. Despite Sheik's best efforts to keep her engaged, there are moments where her mind very clearly appears to be occupied with something else.

Students, new and old, are welcome to stop by early before class or stick around after class to talk to either Zelda or Sheik, or even both of them. Likewise, during the lesson, they have only to raise their hand and one of the teachers will come over to give them some one-on-one help.]

[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!]

[Good morning, Marina. Sheik, not normally one to show much emotion, looks almost overly composed today, his face expressionless and blank - but for a hint of sadness. There's a white puppy in his lap, looking almost subdued.]

It seems that Link, the Hero of Time, has been returned to his rightful place in Hyrule.

[He pauses for a moment, stroking the puppy's soft fur almost absently.] I wish to care for the puppy in his stead. Is it permittable to switch ownership from one to another?

And finally... [And his voice takes on a definite exasperated tone, here.] I will require lodging tomorrow. I don't suppose the annual cleaning day could have occurred when it was warm enough to remain outside?


[Later, Sheik can be found making his way down to the Pet Cafe, a wriggly puppy in his arms, so he can formally re-adopt her.]

[Well, he's hardly about to kick her out as soon as she gets settled...]

[Later, perhaps some playing in the snow in the park may be called for, Sheik's expression distant and a little pensive.]

[He's not at all dressed for the weather, but that doesn't seem to bother Conrad as he briskly walks the streets. Generally, he's walking in the direction of the Defense Force HQ, but it's turning into a long walk and he hasn't quite managed to get there. Resigning would be the safest thing for all involved, certainly, but there are... other issues.]

[He rarely ventures out lately for many of the same reasons; he has to keep himself away from anyone Diva may see as a target. So for those reasons and, admittedly, his stalling, he decides to venture to the store to pick up a few things Diva may like while he's around. He'll just have to hope the people he's trying to avoid don't happen to be there. Or anyone else, for that matter... except maybe Akito, who he needs to check on.]

[And eventually, maybe he'll decide to go see Suzaku and have this out.]
17 November 2011 at 02:11 pm
Well, now that things have settled down~

I wanted to thank those of you who helped me out during the time when I was returned to my younger form. I didn't remember any of you at the time, which was why I was confused. But thank-you for trying despite that~

[Her tail is wagging away happily. Oh, she supposes she should add, since that the newbies have just arrived...] And yes, for those of you who are new, I am a wolf~ Not everyone here looks human~! [Playful Ammy is playful and happy]

Conrad? Wolfram?

[That usual bounce isn't in his voice today.]

No one is allowed to be baseball manager anymore.

[Because that's clearly what sends people away who he'd really rather have not away.]

[Have a video of a ten-year-old girl who might look familiar to those who know Zelda. Yup, she had one of those strawberry gummies, and as a result, all her clothes are now too big for her. Which is why you only get to see her face in this video. She captures just enough so that people will recognize her, since her voice is now that of a child's.]

Are there any women who would be willing to do me a favor?

[Guys are free to respond, of course, but she won't be asking what she needs from them.]

[ When he had woken up Wolfram had been in a okay mood. Not good, not bad, just... okay.

And because of that his day so far had been like his mood: Not good, not bad, it simply had been okay. However it all changed when, during a quick trip across the shelter, he came across a suspicious bowl of little chocolate square candies.

It's chocolate— no one can resist chocolate. So when he grabs a chocolate to inspect it, even though he knows things in prison that look too good to be true can't be trusted, he can't help eating one or three of them.

munch munch

... Damn, these chocolates are wonderful. So wonderful his day has been instantly brightened! ]

((ooc: He ate a whole bunch of ~happiness~ chocolates. Nothing nor anyone will affect his good mood! This is one-in-a-lifetime chance, go go go. ))

[At first glance, you might not recognize the human teenager with light hair. He looks nothing like the stoic, stone-skinned and wire-haired man who sulks around in a mask, and he sure acts nothing like him. The boy is smiling, ear to ear, his joy almost infectious -- something one would never see from Zelgadis Greywars. At least not before his "cure."]

[He might be seen running through the park or playing in the water at the beach. Or lying on the grass in short sleeves, just enjoying the crisp weather. You could find him in the pizza parlor, devouring a pile of slices and a stack of sodas with gusto. Or maybe he finds you, eager as he is, for once, to just talk to people and shake their hand.]

[After all, it's a wonderful day.]

[Once the excitement of the new puppy has subsided a little, Sheik makes his way across the hall.]

[He's definitely going to need to talk to Zelda - especially if there's any chance of danger for any of them.]

[A bit before "sunset," a softly smiling Lacus appears in the video.]

Good evening, Marina. Thanks to an inmate request, tonight we are going to observe a lovely meteor shower in the night sky using the star projector. I have arranged viewing areas on the beach with some light refreshments. However, you should be able to see the meteors from anywhere in the dome.

If anyone would like to see star patterns or other sky-scenes from their own worlds, please don't hesitate to contact me. If you have photos or descriptions I can make a program for the projector quite easily.

I hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

And about a half-hour after dark... )

[he's dimly aware that his bed doesn't feel as comfortable as it usually does this morning, but that in and of itself doesn't feel strange. Suzaku's bed isn't as comfortable as his. and there's someone in bed with him, but that doesn't feel strange, either -- even though he's sleeping in the nude. he wakes up with people in bed with him all the time, one way or the other.

coffee. what he needs is coffee. he's sitting up to slip out of bed when he notices the other figure in it.

and shrieks]

[voice, NOT private]
Nunnally?! Are you okay? Where are you? [sdlkfjsl must make sure Nunnally isn't in bed with some man]

Everyone report!

[p, panic]

((ooc: Voice is open to everyone; action is open for anyone in the shelter who would come running in alarm at the girlish shrieking, especially Zeldas and Ritas. Lelouch will probably by that point be wrapped up in the sheet and in the hallway, being very unsteady. If you want to action tag with Sheik instead, just put it in your subject line.))

[ 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] ))

[It's early in the morning yet, and a certain Hero has wandered on a whim into the pet cafe. His head is canted downward currently, fingers currently wandering through the thick, fluffy fur of a puppy who is currently taking up his lap.]

I think... I think I want to take her home. How do I adopt her? Do I have to do something special?

[Because, quite simply, the boy has fallen in love. He's always liked animals, and he already feels a little better about--well, everything. Animals were a lot less confusing than people. They also didn't make his heart race in that strange, overwhelming sort of way.]
03 October 2011 at 11:42 pm
[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.

ETA: Cloud is not keeping previous Marina memories.]

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.)
