all day 🌸 the beach

[Has worked piled up recently? Are you someone with a busy schedule? Well, forget about that, because Miracle Country evidently doesn't care for the workaholic. Today it's the beginning of summer, which means it's time for a beach day!

You'll find yourselves at the aforementioned beach, should you not head over yourselves (why waste the chance, afterall?), with an appropriate outfit for the occasion... Or inappropriate, depending on your standards. The drinks stand is open and ready to take your money any orders, with its lounging area asking to be used during this sunny, clear day. There are inflatable toys to be found near the shore, should you feel like indulging in the water for a while.

More importantly, around the middle of the beach, there's a very large sand sculpture of an Usyagi, towering over a designated area where you can find buckets, shovels, and other things to build your own sandcastles! As the non-sand Usyagi will remind those who didn't check up on quests, anyone can join in and build their own. If you complete the task, you'll get a reward - and there'll be an extra prize if you manage to make a castle that's bigger and fancier than everybody else's.

Lucky for any grumps out there, this time nothing is forcing them to stay, or keep whatever clothes they end up with - unless you count the chances of earning bad konpeito for being a killjoy, that is. What? That absolutely counts as having a choice, doesn't it?]

open 🌸 all day

[It takes a while, but slowly the jealousy outbursts people had over the last couple of days go away. Maybe it strained some relationships, maybe it strengthened them, but at least it’s evident that they have gone away now. Finally things feel normal. The days are getting warmer and warmer, there’s not a cloud in the sky, and it’s certainly the time of the year to spend some time outside.

Even if you’d rather spend the day inside being mortified by acts done under jealousy’s influence, it’s clear the world itself wants everyone to be outside today. And to encourage you to do so, there’ll be a lot of mysterious boxes everywhere today. They are hard to miss- you can probably see one out of your window when you wake up, or waiting for you on your doorstep.

What’s in these boxes, then? All sorts of things, mostly props. A copy of Excalibur, or of Sakura’s staff, or any kind of sword. Maybe a lightsaber or a weapon. All safe, of course, the world hasn’t gone mad enough for powerful weapons to be thrown around like nothing. They are just there to play around for the day. And aside from weapons, whoever opens a box might also find other things: a Mokona plushie, a dvd of that one movie they really missed from back home, a picture of their loved ones or their favorite book.

It’s time to open some boxes and have fun with what’s inside.]

open 🌸 all week

[Today starts as a usual day, another sleepy almost-summer in Miracle Country. People are going about their business as usual. Enjoying a walk with a friend. Eating delicious food. Fulfilling some of the quests.

But then, perhaps, suddenly today feels different. Does it feel like your best friend is ignoring you? Or maybe you can't stand watching them talk to someone else? Are you suddenly convinced they're going to ditch you forever, and must clearly be showing this by deciding they won't stick by your side at all hours of the day, maybe even dared to act friendly to others?

Perhaps you're jealous other people are paying attention to them, rather than you. Or feel jealous about things others have, maybe driving you to more questionable methods of obtaining them for yourself. Perhaps you're feeling particularly possessive of your significant other, or upset thinking of all the times they obviously were flirting with that one person they usually interact with.

Maybe you're already usually a jealous person, and then you'll either notice nothing different, or become fully melodramatic and ridiculous at the smallest things. ... Or you're the poor bastard who isn't affected by any of this, and is tired of people making a scene. Well, before you start considering giving out sleeping pills or shaking your partner for a while out of sheer frustration, keep in mind that while the unjustified jealousy can easily come up for a couple of days ahead, it should wear off after a short while. It'll simply be a matter of putting up with it, and... maybe hope no one challenges anyone else to a duel, or take other extreme measures, until a few hours have passed.

After all, it’s such a beautiful day— it’d be a shame if it was ruined by someone’s sour mood!]

all day & during the sleepover night 🌸 open

[So, this new guy didn't waste time in testing the Usyagi's offer to bring things from back home - he's requested a weapon that didn't cross worlds with him, and was given a ridiculous task to accomplish.

Now, he really, really does not want to be stuck here defenseless, and so he's sucking it up and going ahead with this plan regardless of how much he objects to it. You may find him as he works on this goal, meeting with several people, arranging food and other necessary things for it...

And a couple of days later, you might find yourself attending the meeting he set up, by one of the common rooms that's been rearranged for it. Rather than the usual sofas and furniture in it, there's a couple of matressess, plenty of blankets and pillows set out, as well as assorted junk food and drinks. Maybe some teddy bears here and there. They felt important.]

open 🌸 all day

[Certainly it’s been a few weeks of bad luck, hasn’t it? First, all that rain, then all that sickness… wow, you must need a break, right?

Luckily for you, it seems Miracle Country wants to make amends for the harsh month. Really, the usyagi just want you to relax!

There’s a new path in the forest today. If you follow it, you’ll find yourself coming upon some natural hot springs— deep, calming pools spread out throughout the forest, tucked between pockets of trees and bamboo, some wildflowers and floating cherry blossoms. With little wisps of steam rising up over the tree line, comfortable rocks to lounge on, and more than enough space for everyone, it’s an open invitation for some relaxation. Overall, it looks inviting and soothing, and don’t you just want to relax, if only for a moment?

The Usyagi are looking out for you, too, as you’ll find some towels and robes, and some naturally growing bamboo for privacy when changing, or if you just want to be alone.

So lean back, relax, and let your thoughts drift in the calming, mineral-rich water. Let the tension soak out of your shoulders. Prop your feet up. Just forget for a moment.]
