all day 🌸 everywhere

[It's pretty clear once Valentine's Day arrives, as Miracle Country embraces the pinks even more than the usual. Silly heart-shaped decorations over any of the buildings, even framing doors and windows outside the different houses, all sorts of flowers everywhere despite the cold, an increase in the sappiness of the chocolates available by the candy shop...

But more importantly, the Usyagi are joining the celebration. Armed with tiny little pink bows, they're being particularly sneaky today, hiding behind trees and buildings, their tiny beady eyes even more suspicious than usual. Of course, they can't get a good shot if everyone's aware of their presence! And shoo they will - special magic arrows that will help people get in the Valentine's Day mood.



Maybe you'll start to blush and fumble over words shyly while talking to a friend (isn't it easier to realize the warm feeling in your chest this way?), maybe you're more confident and start openly flirting (it's about time, right?), or feel like making a dramatic love declaration out of nowhere (the flashier the better!). Maybe you're feeling oddly jealous in ways you never did before, or feel nervous because that person's not spending time with you and feel like fixing it (set up a special date for the two of you!). Maybe you suddenly trip and end up falling right into that special someone's arms!

Or... maybe it wasn't the special someone, and it's just your friend you don't have romantic feelings for? Maybe you were just trying to buy some food? Well, what's more romantic than a little spontaneity? Who knows what you've been missing out on? Alright, maybe the Usyagi aren't being too careful when choosing when to shoot. You can't blame them for trying to help with the mood a little, and the effects of their special arrows aren't permanent anyway. No harm done, right?]

all day 🌸 everywhere

[it's a quiet, rather chilly day today. It's to be expected at this time of the year, but it feels particuarly difficult to handle. What starts as a particularly biting cold day seems to get worse as time goes by, making it difficult to be comfortable anywhere. You might long for those (now vanished) hot springs from a few days ago and get a nice long hot bath at home, or seek out the comfort of some hot beverage at the café, or cuddle up under a pile of blankets in your rooms or the underground common areas.

While these provide some temporary relief, as the hours pass it'll be more and more unbearable. No matter how many more layers of clothing you add, or how much you get close to fire, or how immune you normally might be to weather changes, it's likely you'll reach the evening feeling uncomfortably cold, if not a shivering mess.

So what's the answer? Seek out others. The more the cold seeps in, the more that being close to someone else helps. The closer the better, and even if they might feel as cold as you, once you're in each others' arms you'll both feel very warm, clearly the work of some odd magic... maybe it's a set up for the upcoming romantic celebrations? Maybe Miracle Country didn't want anyone to be without a date, and felt like nudging them in the right direction. Or in a cuddly direction. Either way, try to at least find a friend to hold you or hang out with you, or spend a sleepless night trying to regain some body temperature.

And no, cats do not count as 'friends'.]

[Forget the cold! Forget the awkward mistletoe! Forget the-- Okay, you get the point. It's time for hot springs! And what better way for Miracle Country to deliver anything than out of the blue and for no reason? Exactly!!

For the duration of the day, the special path to the forests will reappear, and for those who were around early last year, they'll remember what it means. The path takes you directly to a quiet location where natural hot springs are, along with special cabins for changing clothes, washing up before the springs, and relaxing afterwards with some drinks and a meal if you'd like - you could even stay the night if you'd like, or earn a few konpeito by taking on some tasks and help others around.

So time to grab some robes and a towel and enjoy yourselves! And maybe wonder how come the springs seem to all have sakura petals scattered over the water... Well, considering where everyone is, it's not that much of a surprise, is it?]

[It's been a calm beginning of the new year, perhaps too calm, for those accustomed to the world's shenanigans. Today it might seem like Miracle Country's up to its usual ridiculousness, since the snow has piled up and up overnight and created many odd snow sculptures along the way.

Snow Mokona here and there, a snow nine-tailed fox, a snow winged lion, even a snow banana are a few of the odd shapes that can be found all over the place during the day. A few snow forts and an abundance of premade snowballs seem to call for a dumb fight on this weekend, and you might be tempted to go out and be silly for a while...



Until you notice the mistletoe, that is. Showing up fashionably late, our usual festive friends are to be found at all sorts of odd places throughout the islands, trapping people under them until they kiss, or hug, or punch each other, or maybe sing a song? These mistletoe seem to be particularly nitpicky and will come up with creative ways to challenge its prisoners.

Ah, well. At least you can always kick down one of the snow Usyagi after an unpleasant encounter, if you feel like it!]

all day 🌸 everywhere

[It starts slowly. You might not even notice much of anything, at first. Nothing too remarkable - a joke you don't find amusing anymore. A gesture that doesn't seem as endearing today. A little touch that feels more unwelcome.

Little by little, it starts to add up. It slips away. Your interest in this person fades away. You don't want them close to you. They're not amusing anymore, they don't make you feel as comfortable. Chatting with them, a hug, a kiss, you don't long for these anymore. Old memories don't shine as much, don't seem as precious to you... you'll even start to have trouble remembering them too clearly. Were they ever that important? Were those something you truly held close that dearly?

Little by little, your most important feelings fade away. It might leave you feeling empty, it might leave you feeling relieved, it might confuse you - did you really stop caring entirely? Is it time for a difficult talk? Are you worried about the memories that keep washing away?

But maybe something helps. A place you two shared. A photograph that reminds you of an important moment. A song you once danced to. The food you prepared for them. A broken-hearted face you can't bear to look at, even like this. And then, just as they left, the memories and those feelings will start to flood back - slowly, perhaps, or rushing back to where they belong before they can be forgotten about again.

Nothing lasts forever here, afterall.]

[When the night sweeps in, it seems a simple enough evening. Another evening just like any other. The moon hangs heavy in the sky and there’s perhaps, if anything, an unnatural stillness in the air. Perhaps it’s easy to dismiss that as the eeriness that permeates this island, that unsettling whisper that always prickles at the back of the neck, that one little thread that keeps you from fully relaxing.

Still, it isn’t necessarily a cause for alarm when night falls. It isn’t necessarily a cause for alarm when the fog rolls in, banking down all around. But it stays. It lingers. It grows thick and oppressive, almost suffocating in its unrelenting presence. It seems to follow you. It seems to close in around you. There could be a person walking right beside you and you’d never know—

And perhaps that’s the thing that’s most unsettling. Out of the corner of your eye, occasionally, there is the flicker of movement. As if someone is walking beside you, chasing you, reaching for you, trying to speak and unable. That distinctive, unnerving feeling that you are not alone.



You see a face, turn and— nothing. A trick of your mind, lost out in the fog? Or something else?

But that’s what it is. Eventually, they materialize fully: ghosts. Incorporeal faces of those you once knew, long gone from you now. They almost seem exactly as you remember them, except that your hand passes right through when you reach out. They cannot speak to you, no matter how hard they might try. They shift and flicker and disappear with the fog, as if fully entwined with it, unable to break free.

You’re surrounded by them. The question remains: do they mean you harm or are they longing for you as you do for them?]

[Autumn keeps making its way in, and so do the colder temperatures. Skipping obligations and routines to instead spend the day inside is getting more and more tempting, and this weekend it'll be even more so. Why? Because two nerds got together and set up their earnings from the recent baking contest and have set up a movie night. Or a couple of movie days, more like.



In each of the two lounging areas near the cafeteria, down in the tunnels, there’re TVs and a varied collection of movies all set out for people to choose from. Each room has been designated for a theme, so certain sacred child residents don't have to be worrying about spooky films, and the rest can enjoy those if they want. That's about as considerate as they're getting, because if you don't really feel like sitting through a movie marathon, well, enjoy the very loud noises coming from underground, and half the residents missing, probably. The wonders of everything being connected!

Of course, there's also plenty of snacks and drinks because what is a movie day without tons of junk food? Granted, there isn't as much regular junk food as they would've liked, but they made a grand effort - maybe even recruited you for help in providing enough food, if you work at the bakery or café. There's even leftovers from the aforementioned baking contests, although thankfully nothing that shouldn't be looks green.]

at night 🌸 ballroom

[It's been a long few weeks. The apparent peace brought by the flood's end did not allow for much rest or comfort, in the end. It's been dark, and cold, and miserable... until, finally, the sun comes up. The words written across the place fade away. And even when the evening falls, the world lights up.



Rather than creepy, looming messages that play with your head, this time there's lots and lots of different candles, glowing in different colors, their warm lights showing the way towards the ballroom at the south of the island. Should you follow the trail, (and really, it's near impossible to resist its charms, you'll find this soon enough) you'll find the whole place ready for a much more relaxing night.

Long tables bursting with food and drinks, soft music playing, and, of course, more and more of these candles everywhere, feeling almost alive here, like they want to join in and dance with everybody. You'll find yourselves in beautiful clothes for the day, and even any remaining injuries will feel less painful or bothersome for the time being. Even if you don't feel like abusing the food, or dancing with the others (the usual notes that appear at the Sakura tree will be hanging here on certain corners, however, so you might have a little extra motivation!) you could still head towards the balcony and enjoy the view of the island, looking almost like a city in the distance with all its colorful lights.

... or you could be paranoid and wonder if this isn't heading towards a massive fire you'll all have to survive. Who could blame you at this point, honestly?]

[It’s been days since there’s been any sign of the creatures that attacked, days since the rain stopped. And you can tell that the water is receding. It drains away until it’s easy enough to come down from the trees. Once you leave the treehouses, they seem to be swallowed up into the forest, as if they were never there at all.

Night falls and it’s almost peaceful, almost a sigh of relief— the end is in sight, isn’t it?

The water drains away and you might even be able to return to your homes— although waterlogged and water-damaged. Once morning comes, it should be fine. You’ll be able to rest. You’ll be able to take care of those still recovering from the attacks.

Except, the sun doesn’t come back again.



At first, perhaps you can tell yourself it’s a long night only because you’re waiting for it to end. Perhaps you wake up in the morning and assume it’s still the middle of the night because of the darkness. But the hours tick away and still the sun does not rise. And slowly, all other sources of light go out. The fire you’ve built to keep warm still burns, but produces no light. Fire magic illuminates for a brief time until it, too, starts to fade. Any new sources of light you try to create, even large ones, glow very faintly, dimly. Like they're struggling to stay there at all. And there’s no moon in the sky. Slowly, even the stars blink away.

You are not completely without light, of course. Miracle Country doesn’t expect you all to stumble into the dark never to be found again.

The light is unpredictable but illuminates the spaces around it. They’re made up of phrases and words— across walls, on the tree trunks, across the ground, anywhere you look. They glow brighter than fire, shining for a while before slowly fading.

They’re confessions. Yours, perhaps, or someone near you. Or maybe not related to you at all—and opportunity for misunderstanding. But they seem to follow you, guide you, goad you or comfort you. Perhaps they’re words you’ve never said aloud before, words you wanted to tell someone, something you’ve been swallowing down and know you have to say it. Perhaps the magic here is trying to help you. Perhaps the magic here is trying to taunt you.

Regardless, the words can’t be made to disappear and they can’t be predicted. But they’re what keep you all from being plunged into the darkness.

Can you find your way home again? The endless darkness will remain for several days, so make the best of this— who knows what might be lurking in the dark?]

[It’s been over a week since the storm started and, somehow, it hasn’t stopped. It hasn’t abated. Perhaps it’s held steady, slow in its steady increase of power and destruction. That rippling of thunder throughout the day, the flash of lightning, the onslaught of rain— maybe it’s becoming background noise.

Or maybe you’re concerned. After all, there can only be so much rain before things become difficult to navigate. There’s that insistent dripping in the underground tunnels, growing steadily as the week progresses. The river and lake looks so full, the ocean so turbulent. The skies are an endless stretch of dark clouds.

Until one day, the storm gets even worse, so much worse than you thought it could possibly become. The ocean, the river, the lake, it all slowly starts to rise and overflow, flooding the surrounding areas more and more every second. The tunnels are filling up, flooding into the common rooms and quickly submerging them. The water rises and rises and rises— until even your home is getting flooded. Grab what you can, because once it starts, it happens quickly— everything on the islands are flooding, submerging beneath the water.



The water level will continue to rise until the buildings, forests, even a huge chunk of the mountain is submerged. The trees will seem to expand underwater, making makeshift bridges from tangled growth of branches, surprisingly sturdy. The regular places to go are gone, but the tops of the trees poking defiantly out of the water now have treehouses to stay in.

Food will be available in the varied amount of fish and other animals to be caught in the water. For those who frequent the river or beach, it'll be clear there's a much higher amount of them, of all sorts of colors and sizes. One thing that doesn't change is the rising danger the closer one gets to the area of the forests, and deeper waters may hold even more frightening enemies, even monsters. More rare fish and other creatures live around these areas, as well. Careful where you fish. For those that can get around, there are a few islands here and there. They’re a smattering around the island, barely enough room to stand and be comfortable on, but holding little magical parcels of basic supplies— blankets, drinkable water, some food. These are rare, and the message is clear: You'll need to survive. You'll need to help each other.

Once everything settles, the storm, finally, starts to die down. It’ll continue raining well through the afternoon, but eventually the clouds will roll away and the ocean will settle.

Well… hope you’re okay with swimming.]

[It seems that people are recovering from the last bout of magic. Did you collect some good konpeito for helping to comfort others? Some bad konpeito for giving into those feelings of guilt? Maybe you, perhaps rightly, were frustrated at this world for its continued tricks— maybe your thoughts were not so kind to this place, in the end.

But see, that’s not very nice. After all, this world’s magic is so concerned with maintaining balance and saving the multiverse! Shouldn’t you be a little more helpful?

Perhaps you’ve felt the building of… a feeling in the back of your mind ever since your hands cleared of blood. Perhaps there’s something nagging at the back of your mind. Or maybe you haven’t sensed anything at all, instead grateful for a few days of quiet.

But see, there are clouds gathering. The days are sunny and then there are a few days of clouds. Nothing too bad, but noteworthy considering how idyllic the weather can be. And then the clouds just keep building, swirling, growing darker.

When you wake up one morning, it’s storming outside. Perhaps the clap of thunder pulled you from sleep suddenly. Perhaps the sound of rain hitting against the window. The water running off the roof of your dome. Maybe you didn’t realize until you stepped outside that morning. Perhaps you’re happy for a welcome change in the hot weather.

But it’s storming and storming and storming. Those clouds are so dark. The rain is merciless, falling without abating, drenching anyone unfortunate enough to get caught in it. It’s the kind of storm that whips around the entire island, waves slamming hard onto the beach, the wind yanking anything not tied down up into the air, the trees bowing against the howling wind. Lightning might even hit some of the taller trees.

Hopefully you can get comfy— looks like you’re stuck indoors today! There are plenty of comfy blankets down in the common rooms, of course, although maybe today the tunnels feel a little damper than usual. And there’s always tucking in your house! Although, occasionally the wind blows hard enough to slam your doors and windows open, dragging an onslaught of rain inside.

Despite all the wind, the storm doesn’t pass. There seems to be no end to it. But, for all you know, it’s just a regular storm— one of those deep, intense summer storms that roll in sometimes. Surely that’s all it is.

And, surely, it can’t last for too long, right?]

[Things have been relatively quiet and peaceful lately, haven’t they? Parties, delicious food, kisses, opportunities to laugh together… It’s been a lovely summer so far, hasn’t it?

Well, you should know this world by now. Remember, it’s all about balance and things have been tipping towards good for a while now, so perhaps today is a means to tip those scales back towards the center.

Because today, your hands are covered in blood.

No matter how hard you try to scrub it away, it stays there, all the way down to your arms, maybe your entire body covered in it. As soon as it starts, too, there’s that strange, magical thread of thought in your mind, something whispering to you that this is because of everything you’ve done.

If you’ve ever killed someone, or feel yourself responsible for another’s death, you will find yourself covered in this blood. It’ll flow from time to time. Perhaps it’s something from your past, or perhaps it’s from somewhere in your future. Maybe it was an accident. Maybe it was intentional. Whatever the situation is, the evidence is clear for everyone to see— this is your fault.

Perhaps you’ll take solace in knowing this is for a greater good— restoring some sort of balance to Miracle Country. Perhaps you’re a lucky one who holds responsibility but whose hands remain clean. Maybe you’re suddenly witness to a loved one with bloody hands. Whatever the case might be, well— hopefully you aren’t afraid of a little blood.]

[A few days ago, it was the international (multi-dimensional?) kissing day! Of course, knowing the nature of this world and how much Miracle Country enjoys these sorts of things, you might be expecting some sort of late celebration... Well, there isn't one. Miracle Country has let the date pass, forgotten, unexploited. A true tragedy for the ages.

But, fear not! To make up for this awful, awful loss at a chance to go around and kiss others, it's going to help everyone now. As you missed kissing day, for today everybody who's looking to make up for that will have a temporary magic aid. That's right, should you be left unsatisfied, or have been already, it'll show. To everyone. Isn't that great?

You'll find that your outfits display a nice little sign saying things such as There's someone I want to kiss or I really need a kiss and so on! The perfect first step to get everyone going!

What? It's terrible? Embarrassing? Juvenile?? Impossible, there has never been such a thing happening on this magical country. You must just be shy! Which is why it's so great you're getting this wonderful encouragement. Please, don't thank the Usyagi too much, they're only doing their best to make everyone enjoy their stay!]

[If you thought today was going to be a normal day after the last few days of fun, then clearly you don’t know this place at all, do you?

Which is to say, when you set out to walk around today, you’ll be bombarded with massive amounts of giant, giant food. There’s a pudding over there towering over your dome house. And over there, your usual pathway in the park is blocked by a stack of giant macaroons nearly as tall as the trees around. Heading to the beach? Well, you’ll need to find your way around the giant bowl of ice cream currently melting in the sun.

And it’s not just the giant food, either. There’re all sorts of regular food all around— marshmallow fluff, yogurt parfaits, popsicles, donuts.



Look out, though, because the Usyagi seem to be in the spirit and seem to want you to enjoy yourself— if you look away for too long, you might find yourself getting hit by that food. At least it’s sweet? Maybe you want to waste food with your friends, one way or another.

Do you want ants? Because this is how you get ants. But in the meantime, what better way to start summer than with a cream-filled cookie taller than you?]

night 🌸 the beach

[Following the fun, wholesome activities Miracle Country planned for the beginning of the summer, a couple of the residents haven't been too happy, finding said activities far too childish and safe for their liking. Well, what happens when someone who wants to make a bit of a mess gets together with someone who shares that train of thought and they plot together?

A bonfire under the moonlit beach, for a start.



Eliot and Chloe (the one who it is reasonable to expect this from) have taken over the drinks stand and turned it into a temporary bar, bringing supplies from the usual one that Lucifer runs. Rather than toys to build castles with, there's music playing, cards to play games and bet with... There's no sitting in a corner being a killjoy here, nope. You'll be encouraged to dance and sing - to be loud and ridiculous, do stupid dares, tell embarrassing stories by the bonfire, go skinny dipping - those drinks provided by the bar might come in handy then. They've brought towels and blankets for people who gather near the bonfire... which might be enchanted, as it occasionally burns in a variety of bright colors, changing to the beat of the music.

That's all the fire does, we promise. Someone's learned from previous lantern shenanigans.]

[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?]

[Today, when you inevitably head out to do whatever it is you do on Sundays on Miracle Country, you'll likely go through the Park, since - as we all know - everything happens here.

Well, something's certainly happening today. Some of the residents might be familiar with the booths that occasionally trap people in them. Except this time the goal isn't to kiss the people caught up in them. On top of the current prisoners: Sebastian, Lucifer, and Harry (who's clearly out there to ruin some Best Miracle Country Friend action!), there's a big sign:

Make an old man laugh!


And that's the goal today. As a pink colored note on top of the booth explains, these three will be trapped there for the day. Make them laugh, and you earn a prize in konpeito! Easy enough... unless you're aiming to make Sebastian genuinely laugh, maybe. But no worries - they do have a sign indicating levels of difficulty, from toughest to easiest. Perhaps you like a challenge?]

[It's been some time since the world's magic has played in this way. But some of the eldest residents will probably notice some of the signs.

It all feels normal at first, as normal as life in Miracle Country can get. But people will start to feel off in some ways. Like something's missing... or more precisely, like they're losing something. Important memories, and the feelings attached to them, they're slipping away, shed in the form of magical feathers that people will lose here and there throughout the day. The way to recover these? Someone else has to pick them up for you.



When they do, they'll be sucked into a dreamlike state, along with the owner of the memory. You'll dive into a dark, empty place, only to watch at a distance whichever memory was lost. Only when it's been shared, will this memory return to where it belongs - and of course, while happy memories can be shared, some of them can be painful to experience again as they're recovered.

Then again, it'd be painful to lose them forever, right? Even the hurtful things in your past make you who you are now. So you might even end up seeking for someone to take a feather for you, to give those important memories back. And if you leave them alone, if you ignore them, maybe someone you don't want taking them will do it instead... the feathers might find their way into the wrong hands - any hands, as long as they can get back to you. They don't want to be separated, afterall.]

[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.]

[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!]
