Who: Namur (in Ted's body) and ANYONE
What: Just what it says on the tin
When: August 4
Where: Noted in prompts
Why?: <-
Warnings: Potty mouth

Schlepping around Genessia in Ted's body isn't exactly the way Namur planned to spend his Friday morning, and what a shitty situation that is. Can't taste anything with his face so he keeps bumping into people. He can see a lot better so he keeps gawking at leaves on distant trees and bumping into people. Seriously, it's rude. They want to fight or something? Oh right, it's him bumping into them. So he smiles sheepishly and waves, trying his best to dart through the crowd which seems far less inclined to part ahead of him than usual. What a pain in the ass...

[First thing that pops on this screen is this purple cat with a black witch-like hat and a tag. It seems she's still wondering around the arrival area, shaking off whatever water was on her. She tilts her head to one side, curious, tail swagging in the background. She leans closer to the screen poking her nose on it, and bats it with her paw before pulling away. The cat grins happily letting out a laugh.]

Nyahahaha!

Is this thing really on?

[She asks happily, and yes, the cat speaks!]

Hello~! Can anyone hear Blair?

Uhm... Hello. Nehra I hope I have this device working properly...

[ When the feed clicks on it shows a frazzled girl, sighing and rubbing the back of her neck. Of all things to happen, she wasn't expecting this. Still, she doesn't waste any more time and looks at the device again. In the background it's clear that she hasn't left the bay yet, or even the cave, but it might be apparent that she's still near the holographic projection Weiss left for newcomers. ]

I... I suppose I should say it is nice to meet you all, whoever you may be. I will admit, when I went to bed, I was not expecting to wake up in a strange new world.

[ She pauses, seeming uncertain before trying to shake it off and continuing. ]

Should any of you know the name "Nautilus", please let me know? In the meantime, I suppose I will make my way to communal housing and try to figure things out from there. So, ah... Good to meet you, again, and I suppose I will see some of you soon.

[ And she's going to turn off that video in a hurry, Nehra that was awkward and hard to do.

True to her word she's going to be at the Bay, stepping out of the cave with her things in tow and looking around. At least it looks like it's summer here too, but just what in the world is Genessia? ]

[It had taken dear William quite a bit to figure out how to actually work the communicator. Attempting to decipher words that he had never heard of was quite the task but eventually, with a bit of poking about, he managed to turn on the video function.

He blinks a bit and taps the screen, chewing the inside of his lip before finally speaking.]


My name is Will Turner...I suppose all of you have awakened in the same manner that I did, so I'll not articulate that surprise.

I do wish to know where I may find some accommodations beyond those assigned to me.

[Work would come later, he knew. He was a master blacksmith and now had skills for seafaring and repairing ships. There had to be something he could possibly do.]

[Growly marine is growly!] I was going to ignore this for being so stupid, I haven't even been here for fifteen years!

[All but chomps his cigar ends off, before withdrawing and replacing them. Yes, that's two cigars at once. He might have an addiction "problem." Except he'll tell you flat out, his problem is everyone else claiming it's a bad thing, kthx and shove off and myob.]

However, recent events have prompted a much needed vivification.

I do not owe back taxes. And any foolish outlaw who thinks to use my name as an excuse for their own activities will get my boot upside their head! [Pause. And then if that wasn't already painfully obvious:] With my foot still in it. That is all.

[Same story different cover, is what he's already deduced.

The piecing together of what's happened, again, is the only thing keeping this feed from being interspaced with gunfire.

You should all be thankful.

As it is, he's deeply annoyed, but not terrified nor confused as he pointedly ignores a child staring directly at him, unblinking, as their ice cream cone melts into their hand.

There's a reason he's not turning the video feed on, he knows this stupid game
]

I've already collected the requisite information from that filthy cave and the supplied pamphlets, endeavor not to tell me anything that isn't already contained within either of these.

I've really only a small collection of questions, starting with: Does the name Holli Would strike anyone as familiar, and ending with a request for employment.

I'd consider them both of equal importance.

ANON MEME


It's been over a year since our last honestly honest anonymous chat. We can all be honest (or honestly have fun) and not have to worry about what anyone else thinks when our identities aren't tied to what we're saying. Same rules as last time so I'm just copy/pasting:
    1. Only reply with anonymous text! If you say something logged in, I'll freeze the thread and put a bounty on your head for ruining everyone's fun.

    2. Put thread topics in the subject line. Don't get off topic, if you want to talk about something else start a new thread. I'll throw a few discussion topics up, but you can feel free to bring up your own, namedrop people to talk about them, whatever you want.

    3. If you bring up personal problems don't whine when people give you answers you don't like.
Those are the only rules, get going.


{ OOC NOTE: All replies to this post are automatically considered anonymous unless otherwise stated in the subject line. If you intentionally have your character reply while 'logged in' Emerald really will freeze the thread. Whether she actually does the bounty part depends on how much she really wants to annoy your character. This is essentially an IC anon meme, except it's actually in-game because Emerald is bored and wasting time at work (sorry Johnny, the kiddos at the arcade only waited a couple of minutes while she posted- she promises they were being twits anyway). }
 
 
[Text OTA]

[There's no easy way to say this. Might as well get directly to the point.]

This second spirit attack revealed that the pokemon that we've been given are as real as the sprites; that is, the majority of the population without necklaces.

[He considers adding an "I'm sorry", but decides to leave it at that. He'll add something cheerier.]

If anyone has been drained by said spirits and would like aid, let me know. I should be at one's disposal soon.

Waking Up - The Bay

[Waking up had been a bit of a challenge after a several years of a moogle companion acting as your personal alarm clock. The bed was comfortable and compared to the ground she'd slept on in the past, it was a welcome change. The perky brunette curled up tightly, burrowing into the comfort for as long as she could. The battles to save Crystallis had been long, hard and exhausting. She'd gone to sleep on board the Enterprise, content on considering her next moves and dreaming of home.

But something wasn't right. She'd left Jaelyn on board the ship and the wake up call wasn't happening at all. It was with a sleepy whine that Selphie Tilmitt woke up with a start and stared at the completely different surroundings from where she'd fallen asleep. She felt the tight braid at the nape of her neck and the unfamiliar weight in her lap. It took several moments to rub the sleep from her eyes before she looked down and saw the small box in her lap. She opened it cautiously before smiling sadly at the white crystal contained within alongside some other objects. The SeeD quickly closed the box before leaving her bed and making her way out of the Bay she'd woken up in.]


If this is a joke guys, I'm not laughing!

The City Proper [Video]

[A few rounds of fiddling with her smartphone later, a 23 year-old Selphie comes into view. Her customary bangs are back in place but instead of her shorter hairstyle, she's adopted a long braid that's flopped over her left shoulder. She's a bit on the tired side and very wary of her new surroundings. Yet, there's a glimmer of cautious optimism about this situation. She tugs at the sleeves of her Red Mage attire before waving at the phone. She sees the little symbol that it's recording but other than that, smartphones are completely foreign to her.]

Helloooooooo? Is anyone out there?

Jade? Anise? Sonic? Anyone from Crystallis? Squall? Zell? ...Seifer?

Um... [She looks at the lens sheepishly before clearing her throat.]

Right. Looks like I'm on my own so, hello! Is this thing working? If you can hear me, or see me in this case, say something! Anything, really.

[Selphie smiles warmly at the camera before tapping the phone again until the feed cuts out.]

[Do you have something else in mind? Come at me!]

 [voice]

Good evening, everyone. I hope that everyone is safe and well following recent...events. I am so grateful for all the people who worked so hard to keep everyone safe. Thank you! I am also incredibly thankful for those who voted so kindly towards, and who have supported my singing. You are all so very kind and generous people.

Now that people are more comfortable, I hope you don't mind me asking - what do people do for a housewarming party? What would make it the loveliest housewarming you have ever been to?

[action a - through towns at night]

Now that Sonico had regular slots at different night clubs, it meant she had to get used to walking home at night. When Cassian wasn't with her, Sonico would wander her way through Nova or Genessia to find the best way back to Attleton. Sometimes she is singing softly to herself, headphones on; other times she would go somewhere to grab something quick and convenient to eat; sometimes trying to juggle a hot takeaway cup while trying to eat a pretzel or a burger at the same time. Why not take her up on a night time stroll?

[action b - busking in Genessia gardens]

Okay, so it's not busking as such, but when the days are nice, Sonico can be found in the gardens in her summer clothes, relaxing by the pond maybe, or else strumming songs as she sits crossed legged on a bench with her acoustic guitar. Come see and hear the cutest female and best singer, so say recent awards.
 
 
[He couldn't believe his luck, but in honesty, he really could.]

When I left, the campaigning was finally over. Now I'm brought back and they're beginning again. Is this normal?

[At least he has a time frame of how long he had been gone.]
 
 
18 June 2017 @ 01:17 am
... So s'it all over then?

Thank God, that was the most pointless half month of me life. May as well have just been feckin' dead, should have faffed about in that dead bloke liminal space if I'd known I'd come back to a load of shite.

Would have gotten exactly the same amount of garbage done.

Great, new guardian votin' too.

Can't wait, I'll get the phone all set up, see if I can't hook it proper to the telly and I'll take a shot every time someone says somethin' stupid.

Tannusen, I want ye to cart me unconscious droolin' carcass to me room when I'm done and lock the door so I don't go stumblin' out at three AM and start a fight with the hat rack again.

Seems like an excellent way to spend me weekend.

JOURNEY TO THE MAW'S CRYSTAL CAVES


At this point, news had been spreading about the flowers- the ones that only grew near crystals in the Maw, that they were what Seek had used on Nova City back in January, even though they were Fayren-native. Those who have made it this far to The Maw and searched for some time will finally find themselves at a cave, deep within. The only light there is whatever they brought with them and the bioluminescent glow of some crystals and fungus within the cave- certainly not enough to guide the way without your own source.

Once the expedition party is deep enough into the caves, they'll likely notice that the crystals have shifted behind them and cut off the way that they've come in. They have to go somewhat deep into the crystals to get to the patch of flowers they’re looking for, a veritable field of them. Most of the crystals are white or a pale lavender in color, and once in deeply enough it will become clear that the crystals have been enchanted as they rapidly spike up from their spots on the walls and cut off the entrance, regrowing just as rapidly if broken. A character may be able to get out if they have teleportation or phasing abilities, but they will not be able to bring other characters with them.

The only choice is to go deeper, and some who do will begin to find crystals that look a little different- refined, not bound to the enchanted white and lavender ones, and they’re a vibrant green in color. Careful though- spirits still lurk around certain corners, and with the low light and the Maw's nature.. well, you may want to stick close to someone else. Those aren't the only monsters down there.

DIRECTIONS:
-If you were RNG'd to receive a green crystal, you received a notification last night. Reply with a top-level to this post to receive the content of that crystal. If you do not post a top level by the 17th, your memory crystal will get rerolled to go to someone else who has already posted a top level. The mod NPC account will reply to your post with the memory crystal contents so you will not have any way to receive them unless you reply to the main post. Crystal finders: Cassian Andor, Koishi Komeiji, Link, Kamille "Mobius" Rainer, Belle, and Major Lilywhite.

-Regardless of whether you were RNG'd, anyone who replies with at least 5 comments by July 4th will receive a Fayren charm.

-If you are one of the four people who get to participate in capture, feel free to assume that your person got separated from their group and ended up finding the other three who did as well. That way you can still have main threads with whatever group your character came in if you'd like while we can limit the thread to a semi-reasonable amount of people for a single thread because 5 people in a single thread is already a lot and we do want to make sure that this thread is completed. A specific thread for this will be posted in reply to this post for each of those who joined in to participate. Once again, if you do not reply by the 17th, you will just have your character dropped from the discovery so that we can move on. Because this is an active thread and not just an info drop, the role will not be replaced unless all four characters do not participate.

-Just replying may also give you a chance encounter for other neat stuff in the Maw. A mod may reply with something fun to interact with if it looks like your thread is active based on a daily RNG through the 17th.

-Please feel free to assume that characters eventually find a second way out. They can also take samples of anything they want with them- flowers, crystals, rocks, whatever they may find. If your character wants to do something with something they took, please ask a mod what they'll find out and include the method they are trying to analyze it with. (If you just say 'analyze it' that's not going to tell us whether you'll find something out- if your character says they're looking at something under a microscope or that they're running a test for something specific, however, the mods are more than happy to answer if there's relevant information that your character can discover.)

[Video]

[Jaune's on top of a building in Genessia, avoiding the spirits long enough to post on the network. He's still in his formal white jacket, the red sash he always wears as well as his shield and sword making him looks somewhat more like a knight. He knows his weapons won't fully defeat them, and he has the one Weiss gave him, but he tries not to use it except for when necessary. A physical barrier is better than nothing. As for how he got up there, his Gyarados is in the background, but he's about to put him back in his pokeball for his own protection.]

I didn't get the chance before we got attacked, but those flowers inside some of the spirits are familiar. Remember back in January when anyone who drank the water in Nova City were split in to different morality halves? When Kanonno defeated Mr. Seek, he told me that he used a flower a lot like the ones seen inside those spirits for his formula. The same flowers can be found in Fayren. I don't know how the spirits could have gotten into Fayren, or why, just-- If this is going to be stopped, I think looking there is our best bet. I'm already heading over. If anyone wants to team up, let me know. Don't feel like you have to.

Just be careful.

[Private to Weiss.]

I know that I should go to Nova City. We have a responsibility, but I feel like this is the only thing that could help all of the cities. Will you let me do this, and can you go with me?

[He already knows her answer. He closes his eyes for a moment, and opens them, looking resigned.]

Please just give me an answer so I know you're okay.

[Action | Genessia]

[It's more of a struggle than an actual fight, when the spirits just keep reappearing. Jaune has made the choice to use his own weapons as much as possible, not sticking to one area for very long unless he sees someone who is cornered by the spirits or who looks hurt. He'll be fine. He doesn't need to rely on it too much. He just has to keep his distance.

People who are still outside might hear a loud scream that's meant to be a battlecry before Jaune flies past them using his shield to try and ram the spirits away, or pin them down with his sword in a downward strike.]

WHO: Everyone
WHAT: It's the Genessia awards, bitches. Oh and a after party where things get real. You know with the earthquakes and spirits and the like.
WHEN: Monday 5th June
WHERE: Genessia
WARNINGS: Spirits, earthquakes, possible swearing from Krista. Who knows.

Before the awards
[Everyone is gathered who wanted to come. Things were ready and prepared, everything was perfectly in it's place. All that was needed now were the guests of honor. Red carpet laid out for everyone, interested paparazzi standing on the sidelines ready to take pictures and once one was past, a nice cosy area for people to mingle and talk until it was time. One can get a drink or something to eat, mingle with everyone else or simply get your picture taken. Have fun.]

[OOC: To note, we won't be doing the actual awards in this log so the results will be posted: here.]

After Party
[Tables were set up, nicely decorated. Buffet table set up down one side of the hall while the bar was placed on the other side. A dance floor was even in the back where people could dance the night away if they wanted to. There was also a podium set at the back into the center where the tables were facing. The young blonde herself, the host of the whole thing Krista was standing by it after at least thirty minutes into the party, she taps the glass she held lightly before coughing into the microphone.]

Ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls. Welcome to the after party. I hope you enjoyed the awards and congratulations once again to the winners, even if honestly some of them were questionable but that is my opinion. Anyway, that is not why I am standing here for. I wanted to thank everyone for coming, if it wasn't for any of you, I very much doubt this would have even happened. [She gave off the sweetest smile she could possibly do.]

I also wanted to add... [She was about to speak again when there was something strange going on. It was at least enough for the young girl to give pause as she knew what that feeling was. It was an earthquake.]

Okay everyone, this appears to be an earthquake, please do not panic and get under the tables.

[Which seemed simple enough at least. For those who might not be inside the building at the time might notice the sky is different it brighter for around 20 seconds before finally the sky crackles, sparks, and eventually it seems to stop.

That can't be good. Not at all. It wasn't long before there seemed to be something. What's that coming down from the sky? Is it a bird is it a plane. No... They look like freaky spirits. That really isn't good.]

 *There is a soft intake of breath before Sonico begins. Her thoughts are muddled and there's an edge to her voice - this is clearly not a rehearsed message, but the comments of a woman very recently hit with some bad news*

I just... I wish. I just wish there was some way, some how, just some small something.. that would mean that people could say goodbye. Disappearing. Vanishing into thin air. It just... I'm sorry, but it isn't fair.

*There's a pause, then a breath, but clearly she decides not to say anything further, and clicks off the feed*
 
 
Who: Koishi, Luke, Satuki, and a few others.
What: Koishi had another birthday. She's giving people presents.
Where: Different places.
When: May 14th
Warnings: None really. Mostly just excessive cute.
Note: Feel free to react. Depending on the situation there may or may not be a response.

Whelp. It was another birthday come and gone. Which meant Koishi was now 416 years old. This meant that people were going to be given presents. Again. Because birthdays involved presents, right? Yes, she was the one who was supposed to be GETTING the presents. But still!
