[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!

I need volunteers from everyone and anyone willing to plot their lifelines on a chart. There's a pattern to the fluctuations from the universes that I can't quite see yet. Granted, we could take this entire plane as a temporal anomoly, or a place in which time exists only onto itself, which I believe is the most convenient way to look at it, but that leaves the more pressing issue of how the other universes do not apply their timefields evenly.

At first I thought it might have to do with merely each individual, someone running away, or looking for someone, but it appears even that oversimplifies things.

I know a few people mentioned dying in their main timelines, but we also have people who continued their timelines after death. So if you could clarify that correlation and whether you expect a lot to continue in your proper timeline or not.

Anyway, I'm gonna try to chart the pattern, so if you could tell me your age, comparable to lifespan, and whether you have anyone from your related universe here and when you are from in relation to them, and major life events distancing you. I just learned how to do the locking and encoding thing here, so I'll keep any and all anonymity or secrets from friends, yeah?

Thanks!
 
 


After the weeks it took to finish, Ayame's first ever house is ready to open it's golden gate for guests. The groundwork was from the effort of Attleton's hardworking people; but Ayame finished the rest, putting together the floors, the walls, and roofs with nothing but her power. Every door is open for guests to come see every room inside at their own leisure, with the plants at the gardens at full bloom and an open swimming pool in the backyard as the centerpiece of the house. Ayame's Attleton neighbors, and friends in the fashion industry help populate this night of revelry...

The Backyard & Swimming Pool

Directly from the main gate are two large hardwood doors leading to the infinity pool. The roof is yet to be installed along with the walls, so it is for the meantime an outdoor swimming experience and a part of the entire backyard where the party is held. The tea room is yet to be installed, so in it's place is a small platform that acts as a stage for the performers. The bonsai greenhouse is also not built yet as well, allowing for more space in the backyard for guests to use as a patio with the bar, serving up drinks provided by Gale Reinhardt's night clubs After Life and Hangar Queen, including the special cocktails only available in both clubs. Assorted water guns are available for use.

There is a drinking challenge at the bar for anyone over 16. It can be a drinking contest between two or more individuals, with the last person standing is declared the winner. Or it can be a single-player match against the bartender, where he or she provides drinks that gets progressively stronger. If the contestant survives the strongest drink, they win the game. Winners get a prize of a glass trophy of themselves, a commemoratory photo with a certificate of proof that they won, a gift basket of snacks, and bragging rights.

The Dining Area

With it's doors and windows all open, the dining area is temporarily one with the backyard so guests can come and go to sample the Taiwanese feast on display on the dining table and kitchen island. Main dishes include Taiwanese-styled popcorn chicken (marinated with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, five-spice, and white pepper before being fried, making dipping sauces unnecessary), tofu fries, gua bao (pork buns, although available in chicken), black pepper buns (much like the gua bao, only the meat is stuffed inside the bread and is baked in a tandoor), & scallion pancakes (a flaky flatbread treat that comes with just the scallions, or can be used as a wrap for beef and chicken, with the added egg).

Desserts include: Run bing (peanut brittle shavings with scoops of ice cream, wrapped in a spring roll wrapper), red bean & pineapple cakes, finishing off with assorted bubble teas.

There is an eating challenge at the kitchen. Survive eating a full course meal of chicken or lamb curry with Carolina Reapers. Superhumans get an extra helping of the peppers to make it fair as possible. Preparing it requires the cook to wear a gas mask, and even inhaling the aroma of the peppers from a few feet away can cause most people to feel it burn their nose and throat. The contestant must finish the entire meal to win the full prize of a glass trophy of themselves, a t-shirt of proof that they won, a plush toy, and bragging rights. Not finishing only leaves them with participation t-shirt with a gold star that says "I tried".

The Living Spaces

With most of the noise being outside, the inside of the house is fairly quiet in comparison. The living room is still a place where people gather to converse without all the noise or risk getting splashed with water. Upstairs are the bedrooms, which are all open for people to come in and observe, with the two master bedrooms connected by the two-floored walk-in closet displaying all of Ayame's massive collection of clothes, bags, hats, shoes, and accessories. You're welcome to touch them or even try some of them on, but don't expect to vandalize it or leave the room with them without alerting the host. She's very protective of her collection.

Perhaps the quietest place in the house is also the most traditional. The guest portion of the house have tatami rooms both up and downstairs, with the latter having an elevated wooden corridor next to a small garden, providing fresh air to those who want to take a break or have a more private conversation.

Hypothetically speaking: Say some magical accident had put you into the body of a skeleton. What would you do?

[ She is actually asking for step 3. Step 1 had been to panic. Step 2 to blame the (now former) skeleton. ]

The Attleton Games were fun. I don't usually win anything. I mean, I didn't win the podracing either. I came in third but that was pretty good, I think.

I hope there are more fun activities around here soon.

So, um, how is everyone today?

[he is sitting in what very much looks like the office of some laid back lecturer with a helpful globe on the desk, though it looks wrong as things keep shifting around, as well as pictures on the desk, shaping away from the camera]

Right so. I lied. I am not Joe Cool. Yes everyone who guessed right gets a cookie and a nice pat yourself on the back for being so clever. Go ahead. I don't mind. Over yourselves? Excellent.

I am the Doctor. There is another man who calls himself the Doctor and he is, in fact, me. You could ask but you'd be wasting your breath. Just don't question it and learn to live a little. Or alternatively ask someone who knows me and see what they will tell you.

Anyway, point is, I am here to help. So if there is something pressing I do have office hours posted outside the big blue police box. Please fill out your name and approximate time of the meeting. Don't hold your breath on the weekends however. If there is an emergency well. I'll find it. Believe me I always do.

However, if you are currently mad at me, that is to say, the Doctor. And by mad I mean furious, angry, want to maim or otherwise want to vent problematic elements of our current relationship, please come and see me and get it out of your system. I am the up to date operating system as it were and the other is still getting the bugs cleared out. But since I was him I can be blamed for all the himming he does.

If you vent your spleen at him instead, I shall be very cross. It's not all that easy keeping ourselves together, you know, especially when there is more than one of me in the same room so, angry as you may be, have consideration.

Anyway! [he drums his hands against the table] That's all I had to say. Staff meeting at ten. Tea at eleven. Twelve is when the fun starts. Oh, and if you know of any good indoor ice skating rinks, let me know. Provided we don't all drown in buckets of angst, it might be fun to get some lead out if you know what I mean.

[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~!

I have a question.

[The young girl speaks as the feed switches of. Rapunzel herself was currently laying on her bed. She had spent the most part looking through the device and had come across the invitation. After pondering on it, she had questions because it was something new for her.]

It's about the costume party because, silly me. Not good with new experiences and all... I mean I have read plenty of books, but they don't quite help me for certain situations as they were mostly story books and fairy tales.

[Someone was starting to mumble, using her free hand to start playing with her blonde locks. After a good couple of minutes, she stops.]

Ah, sorry. I was mumbling. [A beat.] My question comes in two parts. For starters what exactly is a costume? I have little to no idea what one is. Secondly, what is a swimsuit?
