Prelude to New Greetings )

HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN GONE?!

[Geez, hello to you too, Orihime. Her face is flushed, brow furrowed in distress, and her breathing is slightly labored. She's not in the Bay; instead she seems to be standing outside a vacant building in Genessia City. The rain is slowly soaking her blouse and her long chestnut hair, the spatters growing in size.]

I went to work and it was closed! The cafe was closed! Did it really happen that suddenly? I know it was summer but the night was supposed to be warmer than this, unless it's just cool because it's raining...!

[Orihime withdraws a fraction of an inch, taking a brief moment to just breathe. When she speaks again, she doesn't seem quite so frantic.]

I-I guess I'm a little out of sorts, ha ha...! My name is Orihime. Maribelle-sama, if you're there, please don't be too angry! I didn't mean to go into a coma, I promise!

After the Video - Taggable! )

[OOC: Feel free to run into her at any old cafe/diner, bump into her in the temporary apartment building, or even get mowed down while she's darting around town getting her bearings!]
 
 
[Action]

[Those close to the forest on the afternoon of the 17th might hear the thunderous crashing of trees and possibly even see a towering figure high above the treeline blotting out the sun. Yet just as soon as it appears, it seems to fade away with a magical poof. Any soul brave enough to go to the center of the flattened trees to try to figure out what that was, will see a very large bird angrily stomping on some mushrooms]


Stupid, stupid Mira! It's all fun and games until you're too big!

[Video]

[The video feed clicks on with some difficulty, to reveal a bird the size of a small house trying to handle the much smaller device.]

Excuse me? Could anyone please deliver a cake to me in the Fayren forest? I'm worried about getting too close to town at my size and... this is the smallest form I can transform into besides a fish.
 
 
a. [Video]

[Mavis is looking pretty serious this. She's smiling softly but it's not her usual bright smile.] Just a fair warning, some strange things have been happening in Fayren for the past three days. I'm not aware of anything life threatening but please be careful... especially when you're opening doors or eating cookies or cakes.

If you need assistance, don't hesitate to message Fayren's Guardian or one of her Deputies, including me.

And if you have any idea about what could be causing this, I'd be interested in hearing about it too.

Thanks!

b. [Private message to Yukiko] )
c. [Private message to Zeref, Erza, Mirajane, Blair and Dorian] )

d. [Action/Anywhere in Fayren/OTA]

[Mavis is walking around, barefoot as usual, accompanied by her little fairy-type Pokemon Floette. From time to time, she turns the little flower fairy and smiles at her. At some point, she stops to sit under a tree.]

Let's stop for a bit, shall we, Floette?

Okay, Mavis!

You know, even if I can usually understand you, I must admit it's much easier that way.

It doesn't make much of a difference to me...

I guess not. And you have no idea how it happened? Could it have been something you ate?

[Floette shakes her head and her red little flower 'no'.]

Well, let's keep looking... Oh! What's that?

[In the middle of the path lays a gigantic apple. It smells delicious and looks very tasty, though taking a bite of it might not be a good idea.]

[[ooc: Floette talking is just part of the even. The Pokemon will return to normal as the event ends.]]
 
 
15 September 2017 @ 07:55 pm
[The changes to Fayren don't go unnoticed by Erza, though some are more sudden than others. For instance, Erza heads out the guild hall doors, only to be greeted by knee-deep water. She quickly shuts the doors, leaving some water (along with a few fish who comment on how rude it is to be snatched from their home) in the guild.]

I think we're under attack.

[Once she manages to find a way out of the guild, Erza is quickly annoyed by the sheer insanity that is the transformed Fayren. Doors refuse to open until a riddle is answered (though she quickly finds out that the threat of an axe works just as well against the wooden ones), specific cobblestones send her flying into the air, and most of the chairs are telling her off for sitting on them.

At least, in times like this, she can always rely on cake to calm her down. Unfortunately, the changes to Fayren have even ruined the sanctity of that. After a few bites of cake, she finds that it's grown rapidly before her eyes. Or rather, as she looks around, she realizes that she has shrunk to the size of a mouse.]


ARRRGH!!!

[Video]

[The video opens to the familiar sight of the Bay, the device being held by a large bald man in a finely crafted suit. He gazes down at the device, light blue eyes almost seeming to glow in the gloom of the bay, face perfectly neutral.

He continues to stare down at the device in silence, the only sound being the waters of the bay echoing off the stone walls. Finally, just when it seems the recording will only consist of a creepy bald guy staring at the phone, he speaks, his voice deep and calm.]


"Testing."

[Action (Near the Bay and around Genessia)]

He leaves the Bay, comes upon Weiss' hologram, and listens patiently, still showing no signs of emotion. When it's done speaking, he grabs some of the pamphlets and brochures offered and leaves to explore the city. In one gloved hand he carries a black metal briefcase, bearing an interesting symbol in silver.

He'll be exploring the city until well after nightfall, then get a late dinner at wherever's still open and head back to Genessia Commonspace.

((OOC: Cheatcode hint: 47 likes kids and animals, in case you'd like a higher chance of a positive interaction.))

[Video/Action]

[Thanks to a certain someone who released the dogs, one cat remained perched up a tree somewhere in Nova City or Genessia. Her cellphone dropped right side up and was with the pack of jumping and barking dogs. The dogs continued to bark up the tree. They don't plan to leave this cat alone.

Then suddenly, a bark was returned, from the cat. Blair barked back. This was looking like a barking contest, maybe.]
 
 
Please do not come to Fayren right now. If you are planning a trip here or need to come here for one reason or another. DO. NOT. COME. Unless you can defend yourself from the wildlife that has decided to come into Fayren from the forest. If you live here already, please stay indoors.

Mavis, Alice, please respond immediately to help people get to safety. Qubine, please can you fly over the forest. I heard from someone that something happened there a good few hours ago and it might be the cause for this sudden attack. So if you find anything please let me know.

I will be looking into the situation and find out why all of this is happening, but if anyone knows of anything, please let me know.


[For those who are around Fayren will find Yukiko using her Persona to use fire attacks to keep the creatures away, but not directly hitting them while asking people to get to shelter.]

[Hello, ladies and gents, it's your resident salty robot ready to make a serious announcement.]

Regardless of what some people around here might wonder -or even wish about- I do not have a vibrate function. [Okay, so, ' serious announcement' might be an overstatement. Gale, Cassian, you are both to blame for this.] I am, however, liquid-proof.

That will be all. [The feed turns off, only to be turned on a second later.] Actually, I forgot one thing. Please refrain yourselves from licking my boyfriend, no matter how tasty he might look.

Thanks!

*The feed opens on a beautifully manicured lawn and a row of carefully placed rocks and garden ornaments, then it moves upwards to show a pair of cute trainers, some bare legs and shorts, then upwards to reveal the rest of a crouching Sonico, a rather startled and terrified Sonico*

Uhm... I was wondering... Does anyone have any tips for moving bodies?

*She bites her lip then turns the camera from herself to instead show the back of a figure lying on his side. Looks like Sonico has moved his arms and legs so that he is lying straight*

Oh! He is still breathing! Please don't worry! But... he is unconscious I think, and rather heavy...

*Is that a broken garden gnome beside him?*
 
 
16 August 2017 @ 08:19 pm
[The language is spat harshly, the man himself off screen for a moment as he bustles about. Someone sounds cranky]

Cailín amadán agus a prátaí amadán....

[And on screen he comes!]

Right, anyone who's interested in betterin' themselves through education and perhaps not bein' a great stupid prat is welcome to meet me at the Genessia library. Already promised first pick to someone else, but I got a great load of books to give away.

Good deal of it is European history, if that sweetens the pot.

First come, first serve, save for Max. Tell me what your fancy is, lad.
 
 
16 August 2017 @ 10:18 am
[Yukiko was currently sitting at the desk of the Guardian office looking through some paper and gather a few things to place at the side. The office itself looked like an organised mess as she puzzled over it a little more. Once she moved another piece of paper and placed it next to the map she set her focus on the device.]

it's been a while since I use this device to do something like this. but I am doing it as some kind of update on my work for Fayren for the most part and some ideas I have been doing that I may or may not need help on.

[She coughed slightly.]

First of all, I've been thinking of doing a festival in Fayren, at least a traditional one with games and ways to help people bond. But it's the sports or games that I am researching on and would very much appreciate any information one might have that might help me with that.

[She at least got jousting sorted, that will be a thing as she goes to grab her bag, checking through its contents.]

Second, of all with the last two things that have appeared in the newspaper over the past month connected to Fayren, I have decided to investigate starting with the recent case. [A pause.] I know they have sent people out already, but the incident is something that concerns me regardless and I worry they might not return, so it's also to make sure they are okay.

So to the deputies that will still be around, I would like to ask you to patrol at least for today. If you are unable to for one reason or another, then let me know.

[Give her a moment before she remembered something else.]

Oh finally, Heals on Wheels will now be providing classes for those who want to learn basic first aid if they can't do magic and healing spells for those who are able to. So if you are interested, then please ask one of the volenteers.
 
 
Who: Mavis, Zeref and... You!
What: First, Mavis is preparing her date with Zeref. And then, two immortals on a date! <3
When: August 15th.
Where: By the lake in Fayren.
Why: It's the Anniversary of the month that Zeref and Mavis spent together before she died.
Warnings: We'll keep it PG-13. ;)

A. A fairy among the fairies [Fayren / Open to all]

Mavis arrived at the large lake in Fayren, carrying a heavy picnic basket with both hands. She set it down on the grass a few feet away from the edge of the water. She'd been told there were water fairies in this lake but she had yet to see them. She remembered the fairy she'd met before. Elatus. She wondered if he was still around. She should try and contact him, maybe?

It was a little before half past eleven. She'd told Zeref to meet her at the lake at noon. So she still had time to prepare a few things before he'd get there. She opened the basket and pulled out a large checkered blanket that she spread neatly onto the ground. Then, she started pulling out a bottle of wine, glasses, a selection of cakes from Fai's café.

Mavis was wearing this summer dress. Hopefully, her date would like it. She looked down at her handiwork, thoughtfully.

"Something's missing," she said out loud. "But what?"

B. Refreshing some memories [Closed to Zeref] )

[As Qubine turns on the feed, he lets out what sounds like a deep, guttural sigh.]

...Under ordinary circumstances, I wouldn't take issue with predators hunting their prey. It's only natural...and necessary for one's survival. But the fact that this so-called "Apex Predator" not only hunts for sport, but had also taken out a dragon has me concerned. Its ruthlessness and cunning remind me of the Beastclans of my own world...although I have no reason to believe that they have found their way into Genessia...yet.

[He pauses for a moment. If the Beastclans did arrive, what would they do? It occurs to him that he doesn't know much about them other than their hatred towards dragonkind.]

...I would investigate this myself, but yet...we don't have enough information to work with.
 
 
Current Mood: contemplative

what kind of monster doesn't eat potato chips anyway
 
 
13 August 2017 @ 07:53 am
[It was truly an odd spectacle for a certain fairy tale villain to show up on the network. Even more unusual was what he has to say.]

Hello, Genessia... I have a small, yet... important request. Important to me, at least. I decided I will start a hobby. I want to collect a photos of everyone here.

So... Anyone willing to sell me a photo or two?
 
 
10 August 2017 @ 11:00 am
Who: Blair, Erza Scarlet, and anyone at the Fairy Tail Guild - Fayren
What: Mirajane invited Blair to try and join the guild
When: August 7th
Where: Fairy Tail Guild
Why: Curious cat.
Warnings: It's Blair....

It's all under the cut )
 
 
09 August 2017 @ 03:54 am
[The video feed clicks on in just a moment, and when it does, everyone is greeted by a smiling young woman seated with a guitar.]

Hello everyone! I'm Mirajane, and I'm here to sing for you the ballad of Erza Scarlet and her perfect strawberry cheesecake, as requested by our guild master Mavis.

[The song that follows goes like this, starting off slow and sweet, but finishing into a resounding rock anthem crescendo, that was perhaps a little over the top for such a simple subject matter.]

Thank you for listening everyone, tune in next time to hear the misadventures of Happy and Natsu! Oh, and please remember to stop by Fairy Haven in Fayren if you're looking to have a drink, and to hear more songs from me, Mirajane!
 
 
03 August 2017 @ 09:47 pm
[Mira has just woken up and is playing with her smartphone, finding that she catches on fairly quickly, but finding the device to be amusing all the same.]

These things are great, it would probably make getting drinks so much easier if customers could just place their orders in ahead of time. Then again, I kind of prefer the face to face reactions.

[She clicks another thing, and finally realizes that it's a video recorder like some of the magic in her own world.]

Oh! Hello everyone! I'm Mirajane, and I was wondering if anyone here could tell me if they've seen any Fairy Tail mages around? My siblings Elfman or Lissana readily spring to mind, but any members would likely be a welcome sight if I'm going to be here for a while. If not, well I'd be happy to offer my services as a barmaid if anyone is hiring. I have a good five or six years of experience behind the bar, and I can mix just about any drink you'd like.

(Edit hours later): Erza has informed me we do have a branch of Fairy Tail, so I'll be working there. If anyone would like my free month of room and board, please speak to me, and if anyone wants a nice foaming mug of beer, come to the Fairy Tail guild hall! Best quality liquor with the friendliest barmaid~!

[The worst month of the year is here. The Summer heatwave. Anastasia hates being stuck inside, unable to set foot out of the house because of the traits of her people.


However, after seeing a cute cartoon about penguins, she got an idea.

Dressed in a pure white sundress, complete with a pretty ribbon hat and parasol, she hid in the shade of the apartment door as she had her Glaceon build the foundation for a igloo right there on the lawn, or whatever is in front of the Heavens Court Apartments.

Once it was finished, she used her own Ice and Water magic to help her Glaceon build her igloo into a little ice castle, fit for a snow princess.

The interior was hollow with a ice table and ice chairs for two. It was about 7 feet tall and 13 feet around. The exterior upwards to 10 feet tall and 14 feet around. So now Princess Anastasia took her spot in her ice castle which stuck out like a lit-up sore thumb.]


(Video)

[Anastasia appears on the network, showing off a pretty smile. She was obviously proud of herself.]

I built an ice castle! I didn't know my magic can be used for anything other than destroying. So now I can sit outside and not worry about the heat hurting me.

[She will need Glaceon to help keep it standing, of course.]

Text; Locked from Mewtwo
First of all congratulations to the returning guardians Grell, David and Weiss as well as congratulations to Cassian for becoming the new Guardian of Attleton.

Second of all my first order of business is to:
1) Ask for the other candidates who ran for Fayren to please meet with me at the office. I have something I want to ask first before going forward.
2) Go on patrol as soon as I am done with this message or after I've met with those I mentioned, depending which comes first.
3) I will be looking for Deputies soon to help me. As for pay... I can pay up to four stars for four deputies since I will be using my own funds, those you get in the first place and the pay from being Guardian in order to do so. However, depending on certain things I might at a minimum only be hiring one person.
Finally, 4) I want to speak to those who are either have medical know how or who are magical healers. I said in my campaign that I wanted to make healing a thing to help those who do end up becoming a deputy. But yet at the same time, I think it could be a great benefit for the possibility of having people be able to learn to do something like that, even if it is the basic first aid. So if anyone can help me with that, please let me know.

That is all I wanted to announce right now. Thank you for reading.


Action; Fayren
[Once Yukiko was done with the message and once she was sure of certain things, the first thing she set out to do, went on patrol. She was making sure she did her part when not doing paperwork. Making sure there was a friendly face for people to see, to come up to if something is happening so she could deal with it as soon as possible.

With every friendly face she met, she gave a smile and a wave, keeping an eye the whole time on situations. Checking that everything was okay. When she was sure that it was, she moved on.]
