[Gale had already been out when midnight hit, so he was quick to pick up on his transformation thanks to the casualty that was one of his shirts, which tore open at the seams thanks to the sudden appearance of his wings. At least his jacket was spared the same fate. It was certainly a feeling of deja vu when he'd looked in the mirror and saw the horns on his head, and honestly? It was a welcome change. He'd had so much fun last year with the whole 'incubus' thing as it was, so this time around should prove just as entertaining. And on his birthday, no less! He just had to make a hasty return back to his apartment to change into the proper attire again. He's glad that getting that leather outfit to match it last year wasn't a waste.

So when Gale comes on video later in the day, he's decked out in his
outfit of black and purple leather and clearly seems to be in a good mood in some lively establishment. Luckily with the way the camera was turned, there was little evidence to show where he really was... Faye may have taken him out to the Glitter Palace. He'd been eager to check the place out when he'd overheard some people in Hangar Queen talking about it and some guy that supposedly worked there a while back. Yeah. He's at a strip club. Don't judge him.]

Well, isn't this certainly a fun surprise? Or at least, it is for me. I appreciate the birthday gift, Genessia, really.

[It sure beats something terrible happening, given the superstition of the whole "Friday the 13th." What nonsense. Let him have his birthday in peace.]

So, Nova City became one big ol' Monster Mash, huh? Now, since I've seen a couple of you so weirdly helpless about it, if you came out of the city with wings and horns, congratulations! You got one of the more interesting options in the creature roulette. Ladies, you're a succubus. Guys, you're an incubus. If you don't know what that means, well... how old are you? Twelve?

Kids, turn off your devices. Uncle Gale's about to get frisky.

[God help us all.]

cut for mentions of friskier adult content gale please stop )

[He winks at the feed and then takes a drink from a glass of wine that was sitting on the table in front of. Honestly, those poor unassuming transformees are distracting him from the show.]

That said, having wings again and the whole nonsense in Everglade is putting a few of my plans behind. I'd hoped for an October opening, but right now, I don't want the place getting eaten. Fixing that window was bad enough.

[He's still mad, Dracula.]

By the way, all you keep an eye open for the next newspaper and keep the 31st open. Just sayin'.

[His eyes are drawn away from the feed and to a particularly scantily clad lady passing by his table and he just casually turns off the feed.]

Man, we gotta get some shit started, so I'mma start it, right here, right now!

Gonna play a li'l game we call Marry, Shag, Cliff!

For the uninitiated, 's a game were y' make a comment, and then some other asshole's gonna give y' a list a three people, an' y' gotta come back with which one y' wanna spend yer life with, which one y' wanna hook it up with all night long- hell yeah!- an' which one y' wanna ever so gently shove off a really tall cliff. Sharp rocks is definitely at the bottom.

Who's in?

[The screen is tilted at an odd angle, as if someone just hit the communicator with a wandering hand, but the view it's clear, Cassian Andor's bedroom. The clues of figuring that one are that the camera shows Cassian himself in his bed, jacket lost somewhere on the floor and shirt half undone.]

I will never get tired of having lips.

[The voice comes from Cassian's company: a tall, blond man, who is not only very handsy with him but trying to suck a lovebite into Cassian's neck. That earns him a moan and a stifled laugh.]

Good, because I'll never get tired of your lips.

[He curls his fingers into the man's hair and yanks his head up, pulling him into a rough kiss.]
 
 

…and I’d say, it just turns out I can’t leave you alone for five minutes.

[The phones tune in to the sweet dulcet tones of Cassian at his grumpiest. Kay had picked up his communicator from the floor after it was dropped by accident during a fight with Akihiko, and he accidentally turned on the voice option.]

Maybe if someone has gotten here sooner instead or away getting a coffee fix things would have gone differently.

[The droid snaps back, unable to keep the snappy tone out of his voice. He is rarely this confrontational with Cassian but he's in a terrible mood because the joints of his right arm seem to have been affected by Caesar's lighting attack.]

Maybe if someone had learnt to follow orders sometime within the last decade things wouldn't fall apart as soon as I take a coffee break!

[And off they are...10 years of petty grievances being dug up and flung at another as they work through their frustrations and feelings of helplessness in their very own way.  They're very loud and not very nice.]

Who: Ted and Sonico
What: Ill-fated conversation about careers and lust
Where: Fayren in the afternoon
Warning: Lust is the subject matter. Initially just the two of them, but run into them later if you want.

The first part of any crimefighting crusade was chatting up the locals and squeezing them for all they've got. Some ne'er-do-well had been polluting the city's fortune, in the superstitious sense. A curse of bad luck had cast a pall over this part of the world, thinning out the people he'd usually talk to. Not many were out and about when whatever could go wrong almost certainly would.

Or so it's said. Ted, for all his fancy and eccentricity, is not especially superstitious, and treated the day like any other. The sprites had other ideas, if the emptiness and silence of the village was any indication.
Where is everyone? Alone and shut up, living lives as inobtrusive as they could. If every roll of the dice was snake eyes, the only winning move was not to play.

That makes it harder for Ted and his tedious gruntwork than usual. Doubtless people would avoid him if they suspected any chance of, say, his gun misfiring or something. At this rate he'll just have to head back to Everglade and deal with their turmoil instead.

But wait, what's this? What a length of pink hair! He'd know that anywhere: Sonico! He'd flag her down to talk and inquire. Who knows, maybe she has some insight into the luck-damning dastard!

"Hello, Sonico! Fancy meeting you here! Been mindful of any black cats in your way? I've got salt to toss over your shoulder, if you need it."

If they only knew how much their luck was about to suffer.

[OOC: After Shinjiro's video message]

As the suspect has just announced, there is currently a dangerous individual at large. Despite his video making it look otherwise, he remains contained within a currently heavily guarded subarchway.

Although he styles himself a vigilante, citizens are asked to proceed with caution until the threat has been removed, just in case of a breakthrough. Law enforcement is working with experts to resolve the situation speedily.

Other vigilantes are strongly discouraged from engaging inside or outside the subarchway; the Guardian's office will not take responsibility for self-endangering behavior.


[also OOC, not part of the text message, but relevant to the plot, Blaze's files

Alright, listen up everyone. Deputy Guardian Dante Sparda here, and here's how this is going to work. You see anything that looks like a bomb? You call me.

You see anything that might be a bomb? You call me.

You see anything suspicious? You call me.

If you squint and see an object that might possibly be construed as potentially bomb-like if you tilt your head a certain way? You call me.

We seeing a pattern here?

I know I'm not the Guardian, but something tells me Cassian will back me up on this one. Do not approach, do not touch, do not even fucking look at it for longer than needed. You. Call. Me.

That goes for my fellow deputies as well.

[He sighs as he drops his camera carrying hand, as he's obviously out on patrol.] Just when I was getting comfortable too... shit...
 
 
10 September 2017 @ 10:34 pm
Seems you had an explosive little problem in Attleton recently.

The threat has now been completely subdued and there's no more reason to fear. The culprit has been dealt with, thanks to my swift and sure expertise.

Business has been a little slow lately, so I'm available for any other jobs that require my services. Criminals captured. The lost can be found. Items. People. Other problems? Just ask. I'm flexible with doing many kinds of jobs as long as its worth my while. Rates are you pay for what quality you get but all fees are negotiable.
 
 
10 September 2017 @ 10:20 am
 *Sonico has since returned home to Attleton, though she is dismayed to see the news about the bombs. She appears to be sitting up in bed with the head of a very adorable cheetah resting in her lap. Sonico's expression is clearly concerned as she gently strokes her pet's head*

I know that I was expected to sing tonight at the Hangar Queen...but I'm afraid I'm going to have to postpone. I'm sure Gale will be happy for me to rearrange the gig, but unfortunately...until the danger of those bombs is over... I don't feel safe in Attleton.

*Sonico lowers her eyes here, quite ashamed to admit how scared she is*

Again, I apologise. But thank you in advance for your understanding...

*She looks back up at the camera with wide worried eyes, then bows her head in apology and thanks*

Stay safe, everyone...

Sonico has been missing from her home for a few days now, but at least she left a note. It was quite a simple note that talked of giving space to her housemates, and suggesting that Sonico was unhappy living there.

So instead, Sonico can be found with her bicycle and a large backpack in the various towns and cities. She doesn't appear to have settled anywhere for more than a night, and she has the appearance of a girl who has run away from home.

If you don't see Sonico wandering the towns and villages, that's because she has been spending all of her time in Genessia library. She'll be browsing and hesitating in the fiction aisles, or more likely fast asleep at a desk in a hidden corner of the reference section.

Happy Sonico hunting!

*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?*
 
 
13 August 2017 @ 07:53 am
[It was truly an odd spectacle for a certain fairy tale villain to show up on the network. Even more unusual was what he has to say.]

Hello, Genessia... I have a small, yet... important request. Important to me, at least. I decided I will start a hobby. I want to collect a photos of everyone here.

So... Anyone willing to sell me a photo or two?
 
 
Action: Kitten in the House Flower Shop- Attleton

[Not expecting to be gone so long, Aya felt not only out of sorts but very...incomplete. The Dream Docks revealed that he had been missing more than a year's worth of memories, and he wasn't okay with that. But with not knowing how to deal with his newfound memories, he did the only thing he knew, which was go to work.]

[So here he is, at his newly opened flower shop, sweeping the front of the store with a broom, lost in his thoughts about what has been revealed to him. He definitely doesn't pay much mind to the gaggles of young girls who tend to stop by to make small purchases, or just stare.]



Text:

Does anyone think our memories are being suppressed purposely?



Private Video to Sonico:

I got your messages. I'm sorry to have made you worry, Sonico. I'm fine, I promise.

[Besides the still healing gash on his neck from his bounty a couple of weeks ago. But otherwise fine!]
 
 
09 August 2017 @ 01:04 pm

*Oh dear, there's a very concerned-looking Sonico on screen, her eyes wide and anxious, and no hint of her usual cheerful look*

Dear everyone, I need your help. My friend has gone missing, and I'm very worried about him. I haven't seen him for days, and there is no response to any calls, or any of the voice messages I have left for him. His device still appears to be working, so he must still be here in this world... He has not been seen at his home or at work.

*She holds up a picture - it's a rather grainy photo with a blurred image of Aya. Someone must have taken it at her housewarming party, but she appears to have zoomed into Aya, who was in the background of the photo. Still, his shape and colouring and vaguely recognisable*

His name is Aya Fujimiya. It isn't like him not to turn up for work, or to reply to his friends. If anyone has seen him, please let me know.

Aya, if you are out there somewhere, please let me know that you are safe.

...thank you, everyone.

*She takes a breath and turns off the feed before she gets too teary eyed*
 

 
 


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.

Who: Sonico and Mobius (with open prompts for you too!)
What: A date and a body switch!
Where: Around Town
When: Body Swap Day

Sonico had been very much looking forward to her date with Mobius. It was a source of excitement as well as much nervousness. She had gone to some lengths to out together an outfit that would be considered cute - a pretty summer dress and a sweet new pair of shoes with a small heel. That was what the woman in the store said she should wear to be sure that the young man would be smitten. Plus a little bit of make up too. Sonico had trusted the woman, and so there she was, hurrying along to make sure she met Mobius at the meeting place in time. If only she knew how very differently this date would turn out...

[Open Prompts fo Others]

A. There are two young people in town, standing quite closely together. They could just be having a perfectly pleasant time, only they seem to be quite determined to get somewhere, walking their way back home to Attleton.

B. What's going on? It seems a disturbance is going on with a rather rude and aggressive NPC. Sonico is standing, poised for a fight. Meanwhile, Mobius is hiding behind her, watching on with scared eyes.

 
 
 [Video]

*Sonico is smiling and waving in a friendly way at the camera. There's a large wild cat sat purring happily on her lap, but he seems pretty sleepy, only occasionally lifting its head towards the device*

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone is having a lovely day. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I have been a part of this world for a year now and...I was quite lonely and scared when I first arrived. But now, I have such a wonderful group of friends and I am very happy here. So thank you, everyone, for being so welcoming and supportive. It means a lot.

Tonight, I'll be singing down at Hangar Queen. If you want a drink, just put it on my tab! 

[Action - Hangar Queen]

*There she is, on the stage, doing her thing. In full military outfit, Sonico is giving a very energetic and upbeat performance tonight. There are smiles and thanks between the songs. When she is done, there's time for mingling and chatting and some drinking too*

[Action - Closed to Mobius]

*At the end of the evening, it was time to go home. Sonico would finally have to change from her military uniform and back into her standard casual clothes, and then she'll go and find Mobius to see if he'd accompany her home. She scans the room for him first, because if he's busy and looks like he's having a good time she won't want to grab him away*
