[Those turning on their communicators are greeted by the sight of a red eye before the screen pulls back and reveals the face of a pretty but angry redheaded woman who has no chill walking briskly down a street.]

I had hoped that the last time was nothing but a dream, but it seems as though there's some sort of cosmic joke at play. Finding myself here once again certainly feels like it. But I suppose I should introduce myself once more. I am Mitsuru Kirijo.

Is Akihiko Sanada here again?

[Part of her hopes he's not. Despite knowing that the others won't notice her gone, it doesn't help that she wishes that Akihiko is back there to take care of their comrades in her stead. But, a familiar and trusted face at her side is something she also wants, selfish though that thought is.]

If he is, can you tell me where he is?

Action

[Anyone in Genessia will find Mitsuru walking down the street. She's trying to look cool as she takes in the sights, sunglasses covering her red eyes as she notes where things are in this first of four cities, but she has the habit of stopping when she sees something of particular interest. And she's pretty distinctive in that coat.]

*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?*

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?]

Who:Lisa and Sakuya, later on adding in others at the Castle.
What:Lisa arrives, faints, and is taken to the castle where all hell breaks loose.
Where: Just outside of the bay and then Castlevania.
Warning: Lots of feels, confusion, and then all hell breaking loose at the Castle.

She was the only human holding the gates of hell closed... )

*Living with Attleton's new guardian might one thing - she knew that they were struggling for funds. In the past short while, Sonico had overheard a lot about budgets, and lack of technological equipment. So what's a girl to do? Fundraise! She spoke to her talent agency about the best way to make money, and it seemed that there was an obvious solution: selling photo prints. Apparently, this was the way she made most money the easiest, and so Sonico was willing to try.

On the screen is a rather flustered Sonico, but she's doing her best to swallow her anxiety and to do the best she can for her housemates*

Good afternoon, everyone! I hope you're all having a lovely day! Today, I'm doing a little bit of...raising awareness, and I hope that is okay with you all. Please excuse me.

*So far so good, all cute smiles and a bow at the end. This is where she starts to get gradually more pink*

In order to raise funds for Attleton, and for the benefit of everyone, I have prints for sale.

*Sonico's face is replaced by one of the prints in question. It features Sonico dressed up as some sort of futuristic sci fi babe - clearly in-keeping with the technology theme - plenty of skin on show, and all sorts of metal and lights on her costume*

These are a one time only item. The more you buy, the more you save. There - there are more in this series...

*Now Sonico peeks around the photo of herself, and this time her cheeks are really quite rosy - perhaps the other prints in the series are somewhat more risque*

If - if you want to see more... of me. And uhm, well, of the prints then - you can order them from me and I will send them to any address. I am also happy to meet people if that is more suitable. Uh - oh, and I can sign them, if you wish. Thank you for your time today, and thank you in advance for keeping Attleton and all of us safe.

*There's a shy wave, then she suddenly remembers to blurt out the price - these not are the cheapest photos, it would seem, but who knows, maybe it's an opportunity you don't want to miss*

*For the first time in a long time, Sonico finally appears on screen. The bruising on her cheeks has mostly gone, and the cut on the lip is now only a small red line. She bows deeply on the screen and appears very serious in her approach*

I would like to say thank you, very much, deeply, from the bottom of my heart, towards those of you who cared for me and supported me while I was unwell. I am on the mend, and I appreciate all of your good thoughts.

I may still not be able to return to my usual work for some time...thanks to my injuries...but I would like to extend an open invitation for those who would like singing lessons. Please be in touch.

[action - grass areas of Genessia and Nova City]
Finally, Sonico feels able to leave her apartment. She is dressed differently from usual, however, in a long sleeved cardigan and a skirt that reaches down to her ankles - the best way to hide all her scars.  She appears to be slinking through the parks and wooded areas of town, apparently on a Pokemon hunt, her own in tow.

[audio for nightmares - late at night/early morning]

*The voice broadcasting is a shaky and timid whisper, clearly a girl in distress*

Is anyone...awake? I could use someone to talk to...

I have to say, I was not expecting that egg to hatch, but I do so love pleasant surprises!

[Someone seems to have taken quite a liking to this little curveball that this world has thrown at her. She pans the video over to show off her darling Pokémon collection; currently a Chingling, Fomantis...and a Bulbasaur.]

Aren't they precious? Especially Hibiki. The bell one. Mei, the mantis one, also came from my egg.

[A pause.]

I found the other one earlier today. Now, from what I understand, you're supposed to battle with these creatures, yes? Caring for them seems to be easy enough.

[She's going to need a bigger place if this keeps up, honestly. Between the rabbit Koishi gave her, a rabbit she picked up herself, and now three Pokémon, her apartment is beginning to get crowded.]

I'd like to see all of your Pokémon as well.

I took a trip to the Dream Docks a while back and got some memories of things from my world. It made me think deeply about if I was happy where I am. I mean like, in life. Here on Genessia, I’ve done things I never expected to do, like start businesses. I still fight monsters and stuff, which is what I have been in training to do, but business owner was never something I thought would be in the cards for me.

It’s so weird, because I know if I ever leave this place for good and go home, I won’t build anything for myself there like I have done here. I don’t find myself being upset by that fact, but instead happy and proud of what I have done here. I’ve never really taken the time to think about it and realize how drastically different these last few years would be different there than here.

So how do you all feel about your place in the world?


On a less heavy note, looks like we have Pokemon again. Hopefully I don’t come away with another rude Pokemon like last time. I went around and checked the Bounty Boards in the cities. There is stuff posted that’s relevant to what’s going on. So check them out if you get the chance.



[Action; Every City]


[There are Pokemon out and about, and some of them Sun hasn’t seen before. So of course he’s going to head around and check things out. He has some of his old team with him, in case he needs them for some backup. But only Helioptile and Dewpider are out of their Pokeballs and following him around. No sense in letting the entire cast out to roam. They might cause more trouble than anything.

So Sun will be hitting up various places, the Pokemon Center, Cafes, Parks, ect. Feel free to bump into him anywhere.]

 Sonico Healing (CW: wounds, scars, hospitals) )[Text]

Hello everyone,

I am afraid that I will be unable to return to work, both at the diner and with any model positions, for a short period of time. I am home and I am safe, so please do not be alarmed.

However, I am unable to take full proper care of my kitten and I am hopeful that someone will be able to look after her. She is a large cat and requires outdoor exercise, but she is loving and very friendly.

Many thanks for your help and understanding,
Sonico xo

I suppose it's time I became an instructor.

[ Really, the idea is repugnant to the nth degree for her. It's the very thing she'd wanted to get away from in Carnava, especially since it would mean adhering to Dia's rules. But, as it is now, there's no choice. Getting by is more important than her pride, and she won't allow herself to just sit around being pitiful. Besides, it couldn't hurt to have others practice her craft, could it? ]

Shadow Frost Magic is rare, but I'd like to know if any academies would be looking for that sort of thing. It's dark magic...

*On your screens now is a very bashful-looking Sonico. And why shouldn't she be blushing when she's wearing this rather NSFW outfit? Only, for Sonico, she's wearing it because it is her work. She is standing in the lobby of a mall, and it looks like she's gathered quite a crowd. The camera zooms into Sonico*

Don't forget - Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Make sure you treat your loved one to something special! You will find all sorts of gifts at Nova Mall. From declaring your love and getting hearts racing, be sure to come and check out Nova City Mall for presents they'll fall in love with! Come by today and receive 10% participating stores.

*She's managed to smile most of the way through that, but she looks a little more awkward at the end. Then someone whispers a reminder to her, and Sonico winks on cue. Then the feed cuts*

[Action]

If you've been doing any weekend shopping, you might find Sonico dressed up and standing outside different stores on rotation, beckoning customers and handing out fliers.

[It takes a moment for the video to focus properly on Patchouli's face.

Yes, very purple, if you haven't noticed.]


Good evening, everyone. [It's not evening. Maybe.]

I haven't had much of a chance to explore the city yet. Is there a library about somewhere?
