Who: Castlevania crew (Dracula, Lisa, Alucard, Remilia, Flandre, Patchy, Sakuya, Soma)
What: Plot conclusion for the Rain of Blood event
When: Backdated very slightly to August 9 (5 days after the initial rain)
Where: Castlevania subarch, possibly spilling into Everglade
Why: Because Dracula is a dick.
Warnings: Language, violence, possible gore, cuddles. ...okay that last one might be a lie.

[There is an area in Castlevania where only its master may go. It's sealed off by a door of black smoke through which not even the most powerful of magics may penetrate, and it leads into the realm of Chaos. A place where monsters orders of magnitude stronger than anything else in the castle roam, and where the spirit of chaos itself resides, whispering its secrets and lies to those it deems worthy of attention.]

[It's been several weeks since Lisa Tepes' arrival set it to whispering in Vlad's ear. During that time, Vlad called down a rain of blood on Everglade, and with it the beginnings of a repeat of Targoviste. Thanks to the guardian of Everglade and her allies, there haven't been any deaths - not yet, at least - but this is just the calm before the storm. The time for talk has passed.]

[The plan, such as it is, is simple: Remilia and Alucard will distract Dracula and defend Lisa while Soma, with the assistance of one of Alucard's familiars, enters the realm of chaos and silences the spirit. Which task is the more dangerous? Who can truly say?]

The weather report had predicted a partly cloudy and mild day in Everglade. However, somehow the predictions seemed to be wrong as thick storm clouds began covering the city mid-morning. By noon, it would be difficult to tell it was even day, as thick as the clouds that hung over the city were. At about 12:30, it would begin to rain. But this would not be a normal rain. Thick drops hit the ground, filling the air with a vaguely metallic smell, and anyone who had any sort of light source nearby would quickly identify why.

It was raining blood.

Meanwhile, in Everglade's abandoned church, music could be heard. A piano could be heard playing a rather haunting tune as the blood storm raged outside. Within, several small floating candles lit the place as what appeared to be an old man hunched over the restored piano, fingers dancing over the ivory. He wore a cape that spread over the floor behind him disappearing into the shadows and a few shapes could be seen moving through just beyond the reaches of the candle light.

It was a tense night for everyone in Castlevania. The gears that lined the castle had begun to chug and churn all through the night while the monsters that roamed the myriad halls were far more skittish and likely to attack anything that moved - even each other. Only a few knew why the change of atmosphere had permeated the place, not even the lord of the castle himself knew for sure. He only sensed something was... off.

As dawn neared and he began preparations to return to his coffin, an imp that he had sent through the halls to seek out the cause of the disturbance saw something. Tucked away in a room that had gone unused for centuries, tended to by Sakuya and Patchouli, was a woman. Even with all the burns covering her body, Dracula would recognize her in a heartbeat. For 324 years, that face had been burned into his mind, and now she was in his castle.

His mind, twisted by the centuries of hate and war, instantly jumped to the most logical conclusion. Someone had created a homunculus in his wife's image and sent it to him in order to manipulate him. Upon this realization, the gears that had settled into a low chugging noise ground to life once more as an unholy roar reverberated through every stone throughout the castle. So loud was the roar that it was audible all throughout Everglade.

It did not last long and as suddenly as it had erupted from the throne of Castlevania, it ended. There were no echoes, no evidence that it had actually happened. Only a deafening silence left in its wake. Those in Castlevania itself would notice a few things. Several rooms seem to have been rearranged at random, making traversing the castle far more difficult, especially in the chambers leading to the throne. The stairs to the chamber housing Vlad's throne had collapsed, and the foyer leading into the throne looked as if some great battle had taken place with smoldering carpets and gashes ripped through the stone walls. Every bit of furniture had been shoved up against the door to the throne room as well serving as a makeshift barricade. The monsters within the structure were also far more aggressive than normal. The undead that had previously just wandered aimlessly without purpose were now roaming in packs, setting up ambushes around dark corners. The werewolves and demons were actively hunting now, lashing out at any who dared walk the halls alone, and plants that had occupied themselves feeding on the frogs and bugs of the caves below the castle now burst up through the cracks in various halls, seeking out more substantial meals.

[This comes out nervous and slightly quiet. Almost as if Flandre's regretting this.]

I...I don't know if anyone else may know about this so, there may not be a answer I'm looking for.
[There is a pause, chiming and then she speaks once more.]

What if the person you thought you knew wasn't yours? I mean..Like say they are from a different timeline or even world? How you you take it or if it was you, how could you bring it up with people you care for?

N-Not like I'm saying something but..I'm curious.

"Renfield, stop that." Her Psyduck was staring at Sakuya, it arms held up to its own head. Why couldn't she have ended up with a pokémon like the Sneasel she got too? At least that was useful.

"It insists on popping out of his... I think it's a he... pokéball..." She's still dragging Sakuya out with her if she likes it or not.

[Action]

After the initial awakening, minor freaking out followed by a moment to realize that the water was still, shallow or not, the little vampire then flew to dry land. There she got the whole welcoming spiel from a hologram from what she assumes must be in charge here (and apparently stuck here) which frankly does very little to improve her mood.

Kidnapped indeed! Someone is going to pay for this, if she can figure out who's responsible. Probably Lunarians. In the meantime she'll just wander around the city, poking at the device she was given.

[Video]

A young girl appears on screen, muttering in slightly archiec French, French accented English and near perfect Japanese... before she notices the damned device was working? Well then.

"First... let me introduce myself. I am Lady Remilia Scarlet. Now with that out of the way... Who exactly is responsible for spiriting me away here? They've made a grave error in daring to kidnap me!"

It's Christmas time, and Genessia is full of snow - the perfect time of year for some festive activities, and keeping safe and warm.

A - Santa Sonico - With Singing! )

B - Library Hibernation )

C - Genessia Gardens )

 
 
[It's been a week since Soma arrived in Genessia, with all the odd meetings that day entailed. He's found a potential job or two, learned that he is most definitely not the biggest fish in the pond (not that he ever believed himself to be to start with - Yoko and Julius were both high on his list of People Not to Mess With, and they were 'just' human), and been threatened with death by his own past self. Talk about a strange week.]

[Now, however, he's finally made up his mind - he's going to seek out Dracula once more. If there is to be a confrontation, better that it be on his terms than the Count's. Thus it is that he stands at the gate to the castle, the very essence of which he can feel turning its deadly attention to him - and not in a friendly, welcoming way. Castlevania knows its master - and that master isn't some punk with pretensions to power he didn't earn.]

[It is, of course, midnight. A blood-red moon hangs full over the castle, framing it perfectly regardless of the angle it's viewed from - the magic of the Forest of Eternal Night proving once more its tendency to the dramatic. All this scene needed now was a chase through the woods on horseback, with a pack of wargs on his heels. Fortunately, the Castle knew at least this much - such cheap tricks would not work on this challenger. Besides - he didn't own a horse. Though, he supposed, he could probably summon a Nightmare...]

[The gate opens smoothly as he approaches, centuries of blood having oiled the hinges more efficiently than ever mere grease could have.]

((OOC: Feel free to skip ahead to whatever part of the castle your character haunts, I just dunno where to start looking. ^^;;;))

Who: Sakuya and you!
What: Remilia went home. Maids are sad.
Where: Castlevania/Genessia City (various)
When: Backdated to Remilia Scarlet going home
Warnings: A very sad Sakuya :c

Locked to Castlevania )

b) Genessia City

Sakuya eventually decided she needed a change of pace. After calling in sick to work she dressed in black pinstripe top and black skirt before heading into the city. Her wandering was aimless, moving from place to place with no real goal in mind. She was taking Remilia's disappearance hard. Very hard.

She was not the most approachable person but perhaps someone would run into her walking around. She would linger here and there, outside of certain stores and restaurants and sat for about an hour on a bench just outside the bay area. Later, she wandered into Memorium park, leaving an epitaph before vanishing just as quickly.

She eventually ended up in Cat's Eye Cafe near the day's end. Sitting in a corner, her tea long since cold, she was leaning forward onto the table, resting on her forearms, both hands clutched together as if in prayer.

[It's been some time since Flandre has been seen. She was last seen wandering the city and never seemed to return. Today though, She's reappeared, a lot more solemn yet confidant. Which is why she's recovering from burns that the sun has caused and hiding out in the shade for a while. Someone forgot to bring a parasol with her when she left.She laughs slightly at her mistake that she seems to make at the easiest times. For now though, She'll make a post on the network and see if anyone has noticed.]

[Audio]

I am curious..Is there a improbability drive here as well? Because that's the only way I can even explain what just happened..and how I remember being here and on a Space ship for a long time.

..Although I think I'd like to say no on the other effects of the drive...I don't like it's games. It..it likes to take others away.

[There is a pause before she shuts the feed off. It was the truth..although it still hurt. She isn't going anywhere anytime soon so if anyone were to find her..hopefully she'll react well.]

Who?: Koishi and those who got invitations
*Note: (invitations are hand-waved. Anyone who knows Koishi/who knows someone who knows Koishi/wandered in by complete accident is welcomed.)
What?: Koishi's "birthday" party. She's turning 415 years old.
Where?: Chireiden
When?: 5/14 get it? 5-1-4? go-ichi-shi? ko-i-shi?
Warnings: None probably

This was it! Today was the day! It was Koishi's "birthday." Not her true day of birth, as she didn't remember, though she did know it was in the spring and she might as well have it on the day that punned with her name. Right?

So let's party like it's 1621! )

WHO: Koishi and her visitors
WHAT: Revival after getting eaten
WHERE: Genessia Hospital
WHEN: Feb 9th
WARNINGS: Sad

The white light was peaceful. Bright, but overall pleasant. She didn't hurt. She didn't fear. She didn't need. It was like floating in warm, tranquil water. She knew what she wanted to give up, but this was a feeling she wasn't quite ready to abandon. Just a bit longer, then she would return. Satori was waiting for her.

So Why Do I Feel? )

(ooc: Satori or Mewtwo will likely be present in the room for all visitors)

WHO: Those who signed up for The Fachan portion of the event!
WHAT: Fighting The Fachan - More information
WHEN: 1/25/2016 Sorry this is getting posted late.
WHERE: A flattened portion of The Maw, destroyed by the first shard from the fissure.
WARNINGS: Violence.



The smell of death. That was the only way that the scent that wreaked havoc through the air could be described. The Fachan had once been found under the Maw but after its home was destroyed by the fissure in Genessia, it claimed a much larger area of space, fighting and typically winning against anything that came into it. As if to signify its territory, there are dismembered arms, eyes, and feathers strewn about along the 'border' of its territory. Some of them are smaller, obviously different kinds of animals. Others.. may questionably be from other sentient creatures of Fayren.

Defeating the Fachan may not be possible without using intellect instead of brute strength. After all, the Fachan's only weak point seems to be hidden beneath its tuft- the same area where the shard is hidden.

Play out fighting the Fachan any way you would like. Sign ups for this log are now closed, though the following two quests are still open. This log will be played out similarly to a bounty- characters are in charge of NPCing the Fachan except when they get to a point where they are going to try something to get the shard away from the Fachan. At which point, you should comment here with a link to the thread at the portion of the thread where your character's group/team plays out their idea. A mod will notify you if the attempt is successful. Within those who signed up, you may have as two characters to however many you like out of those who have signed up within a team. This gives you as much freedom within the event as you like. If multiple teams submit responses that may succeed before 2/1/2015, moderators will RNG which team succeeds. After 1/30, the first successful attempt linked will be the one that works. (This way threads that get there first won't have an unfair advantage over people who have lengthy to-do lists or surprise business and everyone gets a fair chance.)

*Notice: Mass-area attacks may damage the shard, so your character cannot just drop a meteor or shoot a massive laser beam at the Fachan and call it a day. If you break the shard into smaller pieces than can be carried back to the fissure, it won't work! The CPU will provide this information to your character's device after your character is in visible range of the Fachan.

[Someone has been wandering again and hadn't really headed home since she found out about the Sub-archways. Her cheeks are slightly burnt and if one saw any other bi of her arms or legs, they are burnt too. For now she's inside and away from the sun and just staying out of the way.]

I don't like this...the places we know and were staying going away. Does anyone know why this has to happen so often?

[She's confused this with other times she has had to leave her home. The little vampire puts a hand against the wall and curls up just a little bit.]

I don't know what to do.

WHO: Open!
WHAT: Midboss hosts a tournament to celebrate the end of the year. Food stalls, games, danmaku and fighting. Fun for everyone...at least until Diablo shows up.
WHEN: Monday 29th - Tuesday 30th December
WHERE: Attleton Arena & the surrounding area
WARNINGS: Violence, chaos, fighting, Midboss' ego.

Even with the loss of the oversized statue of himself, Midboss had done his best to prepare Attleton for the tournament ahead. He'd made sure to order plenty of flowers from Terra, and thus roses of many colours lined the main road leading up to Arena.

Stalls had been popping up since the early hours of the morning, and by Monday afternoon, a colourful selection stood along the street - both for party games and street food. It was important to have a variety, even if it gave rise to a rather disorganised mish-mash of activity.

Monday night opened with fireworks, announcing the beginning of an evening Danmaku showcase to warm up the atmosphere. Koishi had been given largely free-reign over the event, for better or for worse.

Drinks and music ran late into Monday night, as the Arena was cleared for people to mingle, with a pop-up bar provided for everyone's enjoyment.

The stalls returned Tuesday lunchtime, with the tournament proper set to run all afternoon and into the evening if need be.

It promised to be an interesting event, and the Guardian could be found flaunting his way around the city right up until the fighting was ready to begin.

[OOC: Here's the Tournament log! I'll put some comments with headers for people to mingle under, but if you want to make your own that's cool too - feel free to organise whatever fights you want, and have fun :)

As per earlier discussions - Koishi will be running Danmaku craziness, and at some point during the tournament Diablo is going to drop in to ruin Midboss' fun, so feel free to give Diablo-mun a poke if you want to get involved.]

[Flandre...hasn't been doing too well the past few days. Very jumpy and trying to withdraw from everyone. If one was to listen to her, there was mumbling about hunters that she kept seeing outside. If anyone else had seen them or knew what they were was unclear to her and the little vampire kept it to herself.

Of course the day before her ability started going a bit haywire, object she touched were suddenly getting damaged, even with the lightest of touches. That started to upset her, tears and refusing to touch anything with her hands until she would forget and get upset all over again.

But things got worse rather quickly, as the damage slowly got worse...and then would just outright destroy the item. After touching a table and it destroying with a touch? That got her to panic and run. Without any warning or heads up that she was leaving, she took off and just ran, trying to find a place to hide away.

She wasn't paying attention to where she was going..just trying to get away from everything and everyone. She'd run into objects and they would crumble or explode, enough to make her run again. This was one of her worst fears...
]

[OOC- With Flandre's ability it is the destruction of ANYTHING and I don't like to use it but for this..If your character touches her, they may feel a great deal of pain, as she will be fighting against it. Just let me know in the comments if you would rather this not happen and Flandre will either avoid being touched like crazy or she can fight against it enough for this not to happen.

But she will hide away until someone finds her and can convince her it's okay and safe or knock her out]

[The screen flickers on to show a cute girl doll peering into the camera before stepping aside to show Alice Margatroid. It's clearly apparent she is not holding the camera herself. What's holding the camera up now is anyone's guess.]

"Good morning. I've been told that there are other residents of Gensokyo who have been kidnapped as well. I want to know who they are."

[Short, sweet and to the point. She does, however, already know Reimu and Patchouli. She considers this a opportunity to confirm what she has been told and find others.]
 
 
09 September 2015 @ 05:41 am
As the wizard's mind slowly returned to full consciousness, she soon became aware that something wasn't right, a feeling that she'd been moved... This was most certainly not her library. Patchouli awakens in a state of groggy confusion to find herself in some kind of metal pod, and as for the pod itself, it was in the middle of a cavern that immediately made her think of Old Hell.

"Where...?" Oh... There's something on the chest... A box of some kind. She surmised that it may lead to some answers, and she was right. Within it was a pamphlet, a necklace, and a device which the use of quickly became clear after reading the pamphlet, and of course, money, all of which she quickly pocketed.

Rather than simply step out into the shallow water, she instead used her magic to float above it and make her way towards the city.

[Text]

It appears I'm in something of a predicament.

I am Patchouli Knowledge. I understand that many have been brought here against our will. But, nevertheless... has this place truly come to be a home for some?

[She saw the welcoming video. It didn't make sense not to.]
 
 
Current Mood: confused
 
 
Hakurei Reimu was always a woman known for lazing about, spending as much time sleeping as she could. However something was different this time, as when she awoke she felt uneasiness, along with a sense of displacement and unusual grogginess. "Ugh… Don't tell me I drank too much…"

Sitting up slowly, the red-white miko wearing clothes that barely matched the design of a proper shrine maiden's attire looked around. Almost immediately a flag raised itself in her mind, and her grogginess vanished as she leapt out of the pod and to her feet, spinning around and brandishing her gohei. "What is this, some kind of Kappa prank? Mm?" Her eyes wandered downward, at the simple white box that had clattered into the water. She rather deliberately and slowly knelt down next to it, prodding the box with her gohei before opening it.

The most immediately striking thing was the necklace, which seemed as though it held some sort of spiritual power. Rather than take it, she poked around the box with her gohei. Upon finding the pamphlet she let out an exasperated sigh, though she decided to play along with what undoubtedly must've been the gap youkai's game and read it anyways.

After reading it, she lifted up and shook the necklace before putting it on, then held the videophone upside down and squinted at it as though it was a trap. After some vigorous shaking, Reimu determined it was safe enough, and lifted up the last item with quite a bit of interest. Money was as much of a weakness for her as anything else, and she set down both the bizarre phone and her gohei to open the manila folder to count the bills. She had no idea what they were worth, but a bundle of money wrapped in a ribbon was already a practical fortune to her, and as such she discreetly stowed them in a sleeve.

Picking up her gohei and the videophone, Reimu made her way out of the Bay and into the bright streets of Genessia. "Whoa… What kinda incident have I gotten wrapped up in this time…?" The simple miko had a stupefied look of amazement on her face as she approached the brochure stand, as though she were a moth lured to a flame.

[Accidental Video]

The screen flickered to life with the image of a bewildered miko who had just fallen on her backside, sitting and staring up at the hologram of Weiss. Before the hologram could even start speaking, she stood up and brandished her gohei, clearing her throat and loudly declaring, "Who are you and why am I here?!" To which the hologram began its pre-programmed introduction.

Seeming quite unsatisfied by the explanation she received, Reimu swung her gohei, though was surprised when not only did the hologram not even flinch, but her gohei phased right through it. "What kind of ghost are you! How am I supposed to fight you if you aren't hittable, we all already ruled that as cheating." She crossed her arms and glared a while longer, before eventually giving up as it began to repeat itself, turning away from the phone to look at the sprawling metropolis. "Haaah, I'm really not looking forward to resolving this one…"

[Action in the Bay]

[If anything, waking up and feeling like she slept too long wasn't that odd for the little vampire. It would take her a moment to get out of the groggy fog and start to catch on that this wasn't her room back in the mansion. She makes her way inward, gathering the box and rubbing at her eyes as it slowly dawns on her that she wasn't home. She glances about the Bay carefully, a worried expression slowly tinting with fear.]

Where...where is this place?

[If judging by the fact her wings are starting to tremble a bit...It might be a good thing to calm her down...]

[Audio]

Um..I guess I should say hello. My name is Flandre..is there really a lot of other people on this?

[Someone isn't used to this...]
