[The video feeds kicks on to a pretty blonde who is not looking to pleased with her dressing arrangements. A silly bug antenna headband, bouncing around playfully as she tries to take it off. Not much else can be seen at the moment.]

As much as I like dressing up my dolls, this is annoyingly ironic. Is this supposed to be a bumblebee costume?

[The camera pans backward, likely carried by her helper dolls as Alice allows a full view of her costume, a one-piece leotard with black and yellow strips across her midsection, a quick turn reveals bee wings and a stinger on her bottom.]

This is not funny!


[Alice didn't like this one bit. This is way to revealing and she can feel the stares of men on her, and it was writing her out. She can't concentrate on making dolls and doing her deputy duties like this. Who would even take her seriously?

Alice walks through the cobblestone roads of Fayren, going from clothing shop to clothing shop, trying to get a new outfit, only to end up back in the sexy bee costume again.]

This is ridiculous! The foolishness of these holidays have gone too far!

WHO: Professor Sycamore and YOU!
WHERE: Nova City and Genessia City
WHEN: October 13 to 20
WHAT: Sycamore becoming the creature of the night
WARNINGS: Depictions of blood

[Action/Solo] Strange Changes at Friday the 13th (Nova City)

Despite living in Genessia made him feel aware of the phenomena happening each season, he was unaware of the incoming changes within him this month. In fact, he was unaware that today was Friday the 13th, the unluckiest day of all.

Professor Sycamore just finished on inquiring about having a weekly Pokemon lecture in Nova City University, hoping to make sure the knowledge of these creatures is shared to prepare for the next phenomenon. Right now, he was relaxing with a cup of tea in a cafe. However, his small break was interrupted when he feels a strange wave of uneasiness and a sharp pain in his mouth as he almost fell from his seat. Realizing this, he excused himself to the worried waiter and rushed to the comfort room.

But once he's inside, he quickly became shocked at the sight of his own reflection in the mirror. Not only his skin is starting to grow pale, but his blue eyes turn red as he stares at himself in horror. When he opens his mouth, he finds that he has now two fangs, which was even more shocking to him.

One thing is for sure. A new phenomenon is happening in this city.

[Have one maid on video with her large round glasses on. Her lip arches, leaning forward with a soft hum, as if she's trying to study the device. A sigh escapes.]

I still don't quite understand, but this device acts as of a phone you can carry in your pocket from what I was told. Strange really, perhaps this is the future? The lady who explained was quite beautiful. Or perhaps I was abducted in my sleep. Hm....

[She taps her chin lightly. Should she be afraid? There's a sudden grin, a thrill rushes inside her. She spins herself around with the device and flashes a smile.]

Good day everyone, I am Mey-Rin, maid of the Phantomhive manor.

A little chill and gloomy, is it suppose to rain today? And no umbrella was left on my wake, pity.

Young Master? Sebastian? Baldroy? Finn? I do hope for your well being. Are you here?

[...this was not something Yuyuko had anticipated at all. A new world, with technology that was quite foreign to her, people she'd never met before, and to make matters worse? The last thing she recalled before she woke up was being in the middle of a delicious meal that her adorable little gardener had made.

Needless to say, the ghost woman was not impressed when she woke up in a strange place, but Yuyuko figured that would be the case for anyone, really. As she mulled the situation over in her mind, she wandered the streets of this strange new city, hovering just an inch off the ground or so.

Her expression remained frustrated as she floated about, scoping out her new surroundings. The idea that perhaps this was Yukari's doing briefly crossed her mind, but despite her friend's...somewhat playful streak, Yuyuko knew that this was above and beyond that.]

Ah, this is simply...wonderful.

[She says sarcastically to herself, before huffing, followed by her stomach growling. That's right. She'd been eating before she arrived...here. Wherever here was, exactly. Perhaps she should find someplace to buy something to eat. She could think about things after she was full.]
03 October 2017 @ 11:32 pm

[This isn't the most normal visual as Flandre actually has decided to show herself.]

Um...Is there any one who knows what to do or give someone when you want to say 'Sorry but it had to be done'? I mean...Nothing serious and all but..kinda want to at least show this?

[Gee..wonder what this was about?]


[Flandre is out and about the hallways of Castlevania in pure curiosity. Before now she'd kept to very specific parts but now there was a surge of courage to see what all she could find. It's energetic but still slightly sluggish as she'd been pushing how far she could go without eating just due to her feeling really horrible about what happened. That and her almost never sleeping thing.

From time to time she'll stop and just sit in a random room, looking about curiously or even dozing off and napping either on a chair or just out of the way against a wall.

Even then- she's curious about anything and everything, probably running into minions left and right and darting away before they can respond.

In Genessia City, wandering around today, is a lanky teenaged hobo former hobo.

He's hitting up all of the grocery stores he can walk to.

Not specifically to buy anything ... if someone runs into him, they'll catch him scowling and looking at prices under his breath. Shinjiro knows how it looks, though, and he'll usually walk out of the store with something. A jar of concentrated miso. Cabbage, vinegar, carrots, onion. He tries to pick things which don't weigh too much, considering his trek about town, but he also tries to pick things which won't spoil too quickly. After all, even though he hasn't found a job just yet, whatever he does find might not give him a lot of time to do more than quick food prep.

He might run into people there, or on his way from store to store.

Eventually, though, he'll end up at an nondescript cafe near Genssia Commons, buying the cheapest tea on its menu. Sitting outside, bags stacked on the ground beside him against the wall, he tries to do some research on the futuristic smart phone. Shinjiro looks frustrated, and it's really very clear he's not used to the device he was given on arrival.

Shinjiro also looks deeply conflicted about something.

So, after some... Conversations I've overheard I got a question for you lot. And it's okay cause like, kids need to learn stuff. So asking questions are good.

[Their tone of voice is so not serious, Chara isn't expecting anyone to give a real answer to this question. And those who do? Well they'll be people they'll want to get to know.]

So like. What is the most horrible thing you ever did and didn't feel bad about? Spare no details and hey maybe I'll tell you all my answer.

[Rapunzel had figured to try and explore Everglade a bit, even after various things she had been told. Frying pan in hand she had made her way to what appeared to be a vampire invested area, her device having switched on while she wasn't paying attention.

She nervously entered what appeared to be an establishment for vampires to hang out as the moment she came in, they all turned to look at her, the look in their eyes was clear they would consider eating her. Rapunzel was quick to hold out her frying pan, ready to defend herself should she have to before speaking.]

Before you try and eat me, I have a question. It's part of why I am here. [She coughed slightly. They were intimidating and really, really scary, but she took a small breath in trying to calm herself down before speaking.]

I like to believe that, the tough outside is hiding something beneath. I don't think you are bad people, really. I mean... you look scary and have sharp pointy teeth which were things I was always warned about, but from being here I've learnt to not judge by a cover.

[She paused for a moment, one of the vampires had started to move in closer.]

I want to know more about you, what you like to do? What dreams might you have? You know, things like that. I like to believe that you have dreams like I do.

[She gives off a small smile as the one who had been moving stopped, inches away from her. What happens next is something that would baffle everyone who watches. The next thing that happens is the vampires telling her about themselves and what dreams they have and for some vampires their dreams one would not think of from vampires. The even more odd thing was this had somehow turned into a song (similar to this) with Rapunzel happily humming along and even at one point dancing with them.

By the end, Rapunzel seems to have generally warmed up to them as they started to laugh and have fun before the feed switches off. For those in Everglade will hear loud noises coming from the hangout with Rapunzel sitting there still listening to them interested without a care in the world.]
19 August 2017 @ 08:32 am
*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?*
18 August 2017 @ 11:36 pm
[It takes a moment of fumbling about and a grumble about Linkpearls being annoying before a young looking cat-like girl shows up on the screen. Although obviously lost and confused, there isn't a hint of fear in her eyes before she speaks, slightly sheepish. It's not like the Warrior of Light has ever not looked like a idiot who was floundering in water before.]

Apparently someone has decided ta move me ta the next place that might need some help. Although I think I liked the first time the land decided on things better.

[She hesitates for a moment, her ear flicking slightly before biting her lip.]

Although, quick question! Has anyone seen any Wild Roses blooming here? If that didn't make sense, don't worry about it. Nothing too important I guess. But for now, I guess I should at least explore and see what's awaitin' me! Maybe there's a Archer;s Guild or Somethin' ta do around here? Sittin' around and waitin' isn't good ya know?

[She's stumbling a bit with the accent. It's not her real one but..for now- she'll pretend.]
12 August 2017 @ 09:45 pm
Who: Lisa Tepes and Remilia Scarlet
What: Determining if Lisa is really herself or a creation
When: Sometime after the blood rain started but before this all goes down.
Where:Lisa's rooms at Castlevania
Why: To determine if Lisa really is the Lady of the Castle.
Warnings: Possible language, all the feels, and memories of a time long ago.

This was the only life she knew, could it all be fake? )
12 August 2017 @ 06:23 am
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?]
08 August 2017 @ 04:26 pm
The recent fights and events here held too many rules to show any test of real skill.

[His pride may still be hurting over a disqualification during his very first fencing match during the Games.]

How well can any of you wield a true weapon? How many have cut down their foes in battle?

It is strange to merely fight for trinkets with such flimsy weapons.

[A little bitter over his loss? Maybe.]

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.

The weather report had predicted a partly cloudy and mild day in Everglade. However, somehow the predictions seemed to be wrong as thick storm clouds began covering the city mid-morning. By noon, it would be difficult to tell it was even day, as thick as the clouds that hung over the city were. At about 12:30, it would begin to rain. But this would not be a normal rain. Thick drops hit the ground, filling the air with a vaguely metallic smell, and anyone who had any sort of light source nearby would quickly identify why.

It was raining blood.

Meanwhile, in Everglade's abandoned church, music could be heard. A piano could be heard playing a rather haunting tune as the blood storm raged outside. Within, several small floating candles lit the place as what appeared to be an old man hunched over the restored piano, fingers dancing over the ivory. He wore a cape that spread over the floor behind him disappearing into the shadows and a few shapes could be seen moving through just beyond the reaches of the candle light.

[ After relocating from the bay and listening to the message the young girl in the hologram had given, Hiro hadn't wasted too much time thinking about things before deciding to test out ways to use the device he'd found at his side. Everything was still kind of confusing, but at least the technology was cool! It was probably going to be a really important thing to have.

Note to self: don't lose item or delete from inventory.

It took only a few minutes to figure out the basics of the network posting system. A lot of other people seemed to be introducing themselves, so maybe that meant he should too? It was a first step, anyway. ]

OI! Wot's all this about the vampire killin', huh?! You can't just go around killin' vampires that didn't do nuffin! They were just mindin' their own business!

COME ON! There's gotta be laws against that, right?!

Look, I'm gonna set up an agency. In my parents' universe, it's called Torchwood, and it advocates for reasonable peaceful solutions betwixt different species of people and helpin' 'em advocate for 'emselves, if they get lost or stranded or somethin'.

But until then, could you 'old your bloody 'orses?! NO KILLIN'! Damn!
29 July 2017 @ 07:37 pm
[The feed clicks on to show a rather confused boy, having just seen the welcome hologram and still not quite sure what just happened. Kidnapped? Wasn't that exactly what he and his surviving friends had just gone through... sort of...? It takes him a few seconds to realize he'd turned on the video feed to ask some questions and instead spaced out. Whoops.]

A-Ah, uh, hi? Sorry, I'm kind of... [He rubs at one of his eyes, taking a quick breath to steady himself. Why did he feel like he'd been in a deep sleep...? Last he remembered, he wasn't even...]

I guess I'm new here? I'm pretty lost, but I guess you all had the same experience when suddenly ending up here. My name is Makoto Naegi. [Best assume he's in a foreign place... well, that's where he is now, right? He'd go with western order, here.] It's nice to meet you all. I guess given the way things are back home, if it's safe here, that's... [... Better? No, he'd still rather be with his friends. He didn't even really get to see what was beyond the front doors of the school. Had she been telling the truth?] Well, that's good, I guess.

[The video feed would linger a bit longer before he'd end it with a goodbye, but he could also be found walking around the Bay, reading the map and asking passersby about this strange new place he'd found himself in.]
27 July 2017 @ 11:36 am
[Thea had emerged from the pod both confused and covered in blood thanks to Ra's Al Ghul's sword. But once she gets her bearings at least somehow she's walking towards what is hopefully shelter but comes onto the feed on a mission of sorts. There's bits of glass in her hair but she's not bleeding which is weird enough right?]

Waking up in a freaky pod covered in blood is not normal so where am I?
24 July 2017 @ 11:04 pm
Welcome to podtown, here's some cash, get a job?

[Her face twists slightly in irritation.]

Now, listen... I understand every community wants its unexplained supply of human flotsam to do something productive with their time. Suspicion of the idle you can consider basic human nature. And the lackadaisical approach might be calming, for people who need that kind of thing.

But for all this is preferable to, I don't know, being told I have to claim the heads of 99 other pod people to be anointed champion of this timeline, it doesn't quite resolve the frisson of waking places unexpected.

So this is your collective invitation to tell me something interesting and get in my good graces. Not an opportunity that comes around often, have at it.
