Who: Koishi and YOU
What: Koishi's costume
Where: Fayren & Genessia City
When: Start of the event
Warnings: Koishi being cute annoying

[Video]

When the feed clicked in it shows a very excited looking Koishi. Her hair had been pulled partially back and someone had given her hat a much longer ribbon and pinned roses and feathers in it. Her outfit was new too sporting long sleeves with oversized cuffs and a capelet that split into two and trailed down to her knees. This was combined with knee high boots that, by all accounts, her biology shouldn't be allowing her to wear without shenanigans, white gloves, a green skirt with a giant bow and some form of... wand? Even her third eye had a little ribbon tied onto the artery next to it.

Like some sort of... magical girl outfit?

"Hey! Everyone! Look! Look at this! I got a new outfit! I woke up with it and now I have it! Isn't it adorable?" She waved her arms, the wand scattering some glitter and lighting up. "I'm going to go fly around, okay? There will be so many sparkles!"

Oh no... The glitter...

[Action]

Practically all day, every day Koishi could be found floating around Fayren and Genessia alike, waving her wand, poking at people and making a huge mess ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE. It wasn't clear if her costume just came with an unlimited supply of glitter or she was actively re-filling the wand but anyone not paying attention or not being careful might find themselves more sparkly than when they started out that day. Oh no.

[A werewolf with a red tie, clever square black glasses and a certain cuckoo hair lick on the mane greets everyone]

Hallo, I'm The Doctor. Noticed that some of the residents of this world have found themselves transformed into other creatures.

So - if you find that you're a gargoyle or vampire - please find me near the Police Box in Nova City. I have worked out an antidote so, those of you turning into stone in the morning will no longer do that and for you vampires, I can supply blood packets.

All free of charge of course.

Mikaela.

Professor Sycamore.

Rose.

[Action for Nova City]

[There's a werewolf standing in a 'pop up' shop near a Police Box and on the table are thick plastic packets of synthetic blood (no blood smell to them), gotta sink your fangs into them, right? And vials that are corked closed and in vial holders for the gargoyles. He sits there, swishing his tail back and forth and looks tired.]

(OOC: Also the gargoyle potion isn't able to work but he gets points for trying)
 
 
A. [Action, guild master appartment, closed to Zeref] )


B. [Video - OTA / Action possible for the residents of Fairy Haven]

[Later that day, once Mavis has actually figured out what the costume was about.]

So... it seems most people in Fayren found a costume in their room. This is mine.

[She holds the camera at arms length, allowing the camera to show her wearing this cute dress completed with black pantyhose and, yes you saw that right, shoes! With heels! Her little white wings have also been replaced by little red horns, and she has small red bat-like wings in her back and a matching red devil tail.

She smiles.
] Isn't it cute? Zeira would be so jealous! I'm not sure who I'm supposed to be, though...

A demon maybe? ...Though I've never met a demon with such a cute outfit.

If you have any ideas, please let me know!

[Mavis bows slightly to the camera. The feed ends.]

[ There's a Japanese black bear on screen. He's surrounded by mats. Anyone familiar with the location could tell that he's at Sand Gym. The bear is holding a sketchbook open to a page with large, bold letters.]

JUDO?

[ It might actually be easier to judo flip him in bear form, since his sense of balance is different. As a Japanese black bear, he's not that much larger than he is in human form. Flipping a bear is still something to brag about, though.]

[Typically Aerik's the kind of guy that goes with the flow. Throw something crazy at him and he'll roll with it. But, oddly enough, that has never exactly meant the same thing as it did now. The worst of it had always been Wire business or self made mischief. Except that time he walked onto a mass murder scene by accident while working a case. That was just random happen stance.

This? This is a whole new level of absurd never seen by the likes of anyone he knew, and that included some heavily drug dependent individuals.

After a little wandering around, somehow he's logiced himself into believing everything. ]


No use wallowing around here, then.

[ So, Aerik finds himself turning on his device, video enabled and his patented charming smile plastered to his lips. ]

Any good pubs around here that a bloke can get faced in? Really thinkin I need it right about now.

Who: Johnny Cade, open to all
What: Johnny’s intro
When: Now
Where: Genessia City

[Johnny felt like he was in a dream. Or maybe he was dead. Maybe his final breath was taken when the church roof collapsed. Was Ponyboy dead, too? Dally? All those stupid kids? Running into the burning building was the stupidest thing they ever did, and all for a bunch of snot-nosed brats. Maybe this was heaven. And heaven meant no parents, or, maybe he’d have better parents here – a family that actually cared about him. That’s all he wanted, not that he ever admitted it to the gang, the gang was bound stronger than blood and they might’ve been hurt at that.]

[The communication device felt strange in his hands as he poked and slid his fingers on the screen. He wasn’t aware the video was filming as he put the thing-out-of-the-future into his pocket and got himself out of the pod. He dropped the key into his other pocket with his switchblade, and put the necklace on, hiding it under his black shirt. It wasn’t tuff and he was embarrassed to be seen with it. The red bills he stuffed into the inside-pocket of his denim jacket. The water outside the pod sloshed over his shoes and into the holes in his soles and he found himself walking out of the bay with his socks and bottom of his jeans wet.]

[Being kidnapped was worse than being dead. He had so many questions. And he felt terribly alone.]

[Johnny found a bench outside to sit on. The sun was warm on his face as he pulled out the phone, not realizing it had been recording the whole time. He cleared his throat and looked into the camera.]


“Uh…,” he said, not finding the words. His eyes shifted away shyly. “Hello?”

[Pressing the button to end the video, he put his head in his hands and tried to think of what he was going to do next. Besides panic. Nothing was familiar. And he’d never been alone before, he always had the gang. Aside from the one time he had been alone and got jumped. He didn’t want to dwell on that.]

Who: Marcus Wright
What: Marcus is facing his greatest fear
When: Now
Where: Attleton
Warnings: May extend into dark topics
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<small>[Attleton]</small>

[Smoke appears on what appears to be a man that looks amazingly similar to himself]

More concerning, it was a !Skynet controlled him.

[The Marcus clone's eyes turned red as Marcus is forced to fight his own self from killing his friends in the background and everyone he's ever liked or loved. You can see John in the background working, a female pilot named Blair stepping back and two kids staring.

"You lose Marcus, you cannot save everyone here."

[Fayren - Action]

[Ever since a few days ago, Erza found herself in a new costume each day that she woke up. Some were already part of her normal list of outfits, so it gave her an opportunity to wear them around town. Meanwhile, others were specific to this holiday, but she was sure to get some good pictures of them so she could have her own versions made later.

The downside was that the costumes seemed to stick with her - even exquipping wouldn't change them, though she can still summon weapons. However, Erza isn't too concerned; she can take some time off bounty hunting and try relaxing for a change.

Erza can be found all around Fayren, looking relatively upbeat and unconcerned about whatever state of dress this place has left her in today. She usually just sticks to Fayren, since that's what she's familiar with, but a conversation that she hears about Everglade catches her interest...]


[Everglade - Video/Action]

[Erza's eyes are practically sparkling - despite what she had heard, she didn't believe it to be true until she saw it with her own eyes.]

This... This is incredible...

[In her haste, the idea of making this video private doesn't even cross her mind.] First! Mira! Look at this! [She holds up the camera, panning around to capture something that looks like Willy Wonka's wildest dreams. All of Everglade, from buildings to benches to even the streets themselves, is made entirely of candy, cookies, cake, and countless colossal confectioneries.] And it even comes back after you've eaten it!

[With that, she'll dash off to sample the sugary sweets that make up Everglade's surroundings... and possibly get charged for more property damage than she does back home in the process. This gets her wondering - what do the other districts have to offer?]

[Attleton - Video - Private to Zeref]

[...Unfortunately, she found out the hard way that this isn't just awesome costumes and delicious treats. The screen is pressed incredibly close to Erza's face, and from the scenery behind her, she isn't exactly out in the open.] You wanted to know when someone from Tartaros showed up? There's one in Attleton.

[She quickly peeks the communication device's camera over the edge of the roof that she's on, showing Kyouka hunting for her on the ground below along with Azuma. Even with her strength, she doesn't want to rush in to fight them when she (as far as she knows) can't change her armour, especially since the mummy costume that she's in doesn't offer much in the way of defense.]

[Attleton - Video/Action]

[Once Zeref's informed, she'll address the public at large, still on the roof. She's trying to stay composed, but from the look in her eyes, she's clearly shaken. She went through something similar back home, and it's not an experience that she wants to repeat, especially when she isn't aware that she can, in fact, change her armour outside of Fayren.]

Some incredibly dangerous mages, and a powerful demon, have entered Attleton. [She briefly sticks the camera out, catching a shot of Ikaruga, Azuma, and Kyouka on the ground below, before pulling it back to her face.] I've fought them before, so I know that most of them have no respect for the lives of others. They've been focused on me so far, but who knows when they--

And here I thought you were too old to be playing with toys... [A chill runs through Erza as she recognizes the voice behind her. She turns, the camera catching a glimpse of a face that's quite similar to Erza's own before it shuts off.]

((OoC: Erza's all over the place for this event, so if you want to make separate threads to interact with her in a variety of places, that's fine with me! I might be slow for the next few days due to work, but I'll be sure to respond when I get the chance.))

 Who: Marcus Wright
Where: ???
When: Now
What: Marcus's revival
Warning: N/A

<small>[ [All Marcus could remember was a shot to the head and winced. ]</small>

"Ugh.. fuck where am I?"

<small>[Guardians standing over the former criminal all wearing gems looked down at the Man.>/small>

"You must give us something important to you to revive.
 Please choose."

[I... give up the memory of how angry my brother made me.]


Very well, Marcus Wright. We will return you to the living.

[Marcus is now revived]


"Ugh, what happened?"


 
 
16 October 2017 @ 08:54 pm
[The feed comes on, she is in Attleton and there is a herd of walkers approaching and she was hiding behind the corner of a building.]

That. That is what walkers look like.

[She said coolly, not at all impressed because this was supposed to be behind her wasn't it?]

Cut for horror description )

October 16th- Nova City Hall, Action - OTA
[ After Yang's incident, Weiss had decided the best course of action to get her ready again once she was out of the hospital was to hop on stocking up on Dust. Which meant she was headed to Fayren, despite the news that Halloween costumes were abound. Last time that happened she briefly was able to firebend, it didn't seem like that big of a problem.

Unfortunately, instead of selecting a random costume, it went for Weiss's actual costume she had selected. It was an olive branch to Jaune after their latest fight, a character from his favorite comic, X-Ray and Vav: The Mad King. (Look, he had the cutest skirt out of everyone.) It's not a complete takeover, so Weiss is still decidedly Weiss, but the personality.. well, that's a little different.

She didn't change out of her costume when she got back to Nova City, instead her priority being visiting the City Council-- the government body that her father couldn't operate without the cooperation of. After a brief meeting, Weiss can be seen walking out of City Hall with a little smirk on her lips and every member of the city council happily.. cuddling puppies and saying things like "Absolutely, Queen Schnee! Thank you!" and "All hail the mad queen!"

It's undeniable they've decided to be on her side of things, though it's questionable how else she got them to agree besides puppy power. Approach her? ]


October 18th- The Throne Room, Video - OTA
[ Where exactly this is is questionable in the video, but the sky in the huge glass wall windows behind it is definitely Nova City. There are definitely people following her every whim and Weiss Schnee is definitely leaning to one side on her throne of blue and silver for a moment before sitting up straight. ]

Citizens of Nova City, my name is Weiss Schnee, and as of yesterday, the City Council has agreed to follow under a new system of government. Sometimes you can't fix what isn't broken, and they've all decided that the appropriate solution to many of Nova City's problems is the installation of a monarchy. My monarchy.

[ And then the City Councilpersons come up one by one and give their blessing on this decision about accepting the Mad Queen Weiss as their ruler. ]

Well, I suppose it's better than Ice Queen.

[ Perhaps those who work in City Hall might find the sudden addition of a throne room on top of the building rather curious, but hey. A queen needs a throne. ]

October 16th-22nd- Power Station - Closed to X-ray & Jaune (once they.. sort things out so they can try to save the day)
[ Despite the odd circumstances of her ascention to the apparent throne, Weiss was still a popular person. Obviously there was dissent about her suddenly becoming a monarch of a city though, but it had been strangely.. well, subdued. Probably because a huge portion of the population was being manipulated by a robotic cow that had been programmed and plugged into the city's power in a hole beneath the station and wifi system utilizing some coding that Weiss had stolen from a case involving the hacking of prosthetics. And all she was doing with it was sending out one clear message to smooth things over: All Hail the Mad Queen.

Needless to say compliance was much easier when you were overwriting a huge chunk of the population to follow your rule. :)

Weiss of course checked in on it every day to make sure that the cow was still secure. Still in the hole. ]


OOC NOTE: Weiss only influenced the NPCs, not PCs. If you play a character I promise you I didn't just do that without your permission. (The coding is for Nova City's system as per a case she worked on when she was city Guardian!)
 
 
16 October 2017 @ 06:22 pm
[There's a sound of rustling as the feed turns on with just audio, and footsteps can be heard shortly thereafter. A small "hmm" can be heard before the pressing of buttons, and there. It's on a video feed with a woman, blonde hair, reddish brown eyes, dressed in a royal blue military uniform. She has a professional expression across her features.]

My name is First Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye. I apparently passed out somehow, and woke up with these instructions and what's called a smart phone. If this is a kidnapping from what that projection of the girl informed, I have to say you're not doing a very good job of it.

[She frowned and sighed for a brief moment, relaxing her tone just slightly.]

I suppose I should start asking around for employment if I'm going to be here a while.

Who: Sarah Jane and OTA
What: Running from monsters (typical Monday)
Where: Genessia City
Warning: Monsters go boo?

Oh what a wonderful arrival! )
 
 
16 October 2017 @ 04:06 pm
[He managed waking up fine, weird pod and all, and even stranger some information about his new place. He doesn't particularly care, he'd been in an 'anywhere but here' kind of situation. His wish is granted, but as he leaves the bay, there's a monster in front of him.]

Whoa! I come to a new place and there's monsters roaming around!

[The screen goes back, stuffed into a pocket most likely and the sound of gunshots, and a bit of a scuffle.

He appears on screen with a huge grin.]


Haha! Victory!

[He hums a fairly familiar tune, at that.]

(Plot A)
[It was a new day, October the 14th. Anastasia spent one whole day as a fairy, and she oddly enjoys herself. It's not easy being 7 or 8 inches tall, though. After exploring the town and chatting on the network, she got an idea for actual clothes without bothering tailors.

She is going to buy a doll. And borrow it's clothes.

Dressed in a tissue dress and hidden under a tissue hood, Anastasia went back to Genessia city near noon time, fluttering her way to the nearest toy store that sells dolls, struggling just a little bit carrying a bunny-print clutch purse. The fact that the first store she finds doesn't have an auto-door nearly dashes her ideas, but she was persists and just hovers where she is, fluttering in front of the door, waiting for someone to come and open up for her to dart in.

While waiting, she may get bored and start either singing or dancing. Her dancing may have accidently made a fairy circle on the side walk. Magical mushrooms grow pretty fast.]


(Plot B)
[Now she is finally inside the toy store. Anastasia flutters around the store, looking for the girls' section to find a doll. Meanwhile, she has to be careful not to flutter too close to other people, lest she be mistaken for a bug and swatted. A big bug that is carrying a clutch purse.

She finds the aisle and soon finds an assortment of dolls her height. Several different dolls for just about any theme. Animal doctor, explorer, princess. Literally anything it looked like. But she is only able to afford one. Quite obviously she is thinking about the princess doll. However, there is just one problem...

How is she going to carry it?]
 
 
16 October 2017 @ 01:20 pm
[Haru didn't want to turn on the feed and that was for a very good reason. When she finally gathered up the courage to do such a thing it was clearly obvious she was still very uncomfortable. It was also clearly obvious that her current look was not her normal one. Wings on her back and horns on her head. It was clearly obvious that she had been changed into a succubus.

She was not happy about it, but it did mean she could peer into her friend's dreams if she wanted to. That always seemed like a fun opportunity, but also kind of a rude one as well. After taking a small deep breath she finally speaks up. She wasn't going to let what she had changed into get to her.]


Good afternoon everyone. I am very proud to announce the opening of my sandwich shop.

[She moves to the side, pulling on a shop to reveal the name of the shop 'Lettuce Feed U Sandwiches']

At Lettuce Feed U Sandwiches we make fresh sandwiches every day. The bread is made here at the store and the ingredients we use come from the garden that is attached. So you know you will get freshly made sandwiches every time.

[She wondered if she was doing a good job attempting people over to this place. She wanted it to work. She was hoping to expand the Okumura Food name in Genessia and made it for the best.]

I hope to meet you all at Attleton where the shop is. Thank you for listening and hope to see you there.... Once whatever is going on has died down, or if you aren't scared when soon.

[With a bow she switches off.]

Action - Dreamwalking
[Haru didn't really want to, but she was curious and wanted to try and at least have fun with what abilities she has right now. Dream walking was one in particular. She figured out how to do it, but she made sure it was only toward people she knew. After all if it had been a complete stranger that would have been awkward. But because she isn't used to these abilities, maybe still end up in them regardless.]

Action - All cities
[Haru can be found exploring all of the cities, mostly for work-related things or at least just checking our produce and such for other future food ideas or restaurants that she might open in the future. After all she wanted to help back home make Okumura foods a good name again and she wanted to do it here as well.]
 
 
16 October 2017 @ 02:02 am
[The video starts with Jaune in his apartment.] Hey. Jaune Arc again. Now that I've been taking a break, I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about something that's very important to me:

And that's drinking less energy drinks and drinking more water. [He holds up a glass of delicious, cold water, precariously filled to the rim. Look as the beads just glisten in the florescent lights.] Water is an important source of nutrients and energy. Most bodies are composed of...about fifty to ninety percent water? Depending on your species. And without it we can't do as much as well as we normally can. Our brains get sluggish, and our super powers or whatever aren't as super powerful. Which brings me to energy drinks. They're a good source of sugar, and, well, energy, but there's a reasonable limit and it's easy to cross that limit.

Don't be like me and drink ten in one night. Just don't. Don't do that. [His stare becomes haunted, before brightening again.] This message was brought to you by X-Ray and- [Bark! An excited white golden retriever named Snow runs down the hall and into Jaune's leg, thinking it's time for pets, but Jaune was unprepared and he has to catch himself from dropping the glass, upsetting the still surface and spilling some on his shirt and pants--]

[He looks either nauseous or uncomfortable and drops his device as he falls rather suddenly, his dog barking at the video while a frustrated, screeching COME ON!!! echoes in the apartment. Turning the fallen device back to him, his problem is quickly made clear. Jaune is now sporting a bright yellow tail with two broader fins and a smaller one that fans out at the end. Some of the scales seem to grow bright blue, particularly the ones lining the edges, and bringing the camera up it's shown that while the scales don't fully stop there, going up his elbows and some on his neck where his gills are, his normally blue eyes seem even brighter than before. Despite the change in appearance, Jaune just groans and slumps back on the floor while Snow starts investigating the different scents.]

I guess I'll go live in the ocean until this is over. Dogs don't eat fish...right?

Who: River Song and you!
What: An open log for the whole month of October! Before the Halloween plot, during and after!
Where: River is a wanderer, so if you want to find her somewhere, find her there! (During the Halloween event she's going to be in Attleton cause that's where she lives and works.
Warning: Flirting. All the flirting, emotional stuff because of her fear. Some actual River Song anger, potentially.
Don’t get too close. It’s dark inside )
 
 
[it's dark, it's night, and the camera is set up on the edge of a wall to get a full view of a dork who looks like he's wearing sedate normal clothing, but...really, he's not. His normal outfit would be the harlequin pants and feather-trimmed coat. This dark suit and the fedora perched precariously on his mohawk? Totally a costume. Thanks Fayren for making him into a mafia don from another culture.

Bartolomeo also looks exceedingly proud of himself, perhaps because his fingers are crossed.
]

Isn't this a fucking blast?? This is great! I haven't gotten so much action since the shitty spirit thing - and everyone was so freaked out and morose about that it wasn't half as fun. This, though? This is awesome!

[he says as a mishmash of movie monsters - ye olde werewolf, mummy, and vampire complete with high-collared cape - charge at him from behind and smash face-first into a translucent barrier they didn't see ahead of time. Barty just laughs his damn ass off.]

Every night is a party! This is so much fun! Smashing the monsters to bits with my barrier, it's great! I dunno what you're all so scared of. Come on out and have some fun with me!

[action-wise, if anyone wants to encounter the Bari-Bari human - to be saved, to fight alongside him, or to lecture him about being out past curfew fighting monsters and having way too much fun doing so - he's in Genessia City every night during the Halloween party. He may not always be in his mafia costume, he might also be in his normal harlequin pants. Enjoy.]
