October 15th- 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 15th- 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-18th 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!)

[and yet another one returning! he was someone that was here briefly, but he had also wanted to try and change everything for the better here. ironwood had been warned about the coming and going of people as well, and he certainly took that into consideration upon waking up here again. no matter, he would just need to continue on.

so, ironwood was now sitting comfortably, looking into the camera with a newly found determination.]

Good day, people of Genessia. I am General Ironwood, and I was once here before. When I was here I attempted to gather up like minded individuals who shared the same views as me. What were those views you ask? Simply to better oneself with a little more training in whatever way one would need.

Of course, this is entirely optional, and we can talk more about if you wish.

[now then!] Also, I am entirely open to talking freely. I just came back after all, I would like to hear updates on everyone, and also hear from newcomers.

Locked; Weiss Schnee

Miss Schnee, would you be so kind as to inform me of any changes that have happened here since I was gone?
04 October 2017 @ 08:22 am
[ The video feed turns on. Those who know Konoka well will see that her mood's improved. Everyone else sees the usual cheery brunette at home. ]

Hey, this might be a silly question, but where do people hang out?

Specifically, where do people hang out to find dates? Much of my free time has been on magical study, but I'm going to go mad if I don't start talking to more people.

[ Whether that was Konoka's desire to have a date or her inner voyeur speaking, no one may know... least of all Konoka herself. ]

[the last thing that ishida remembered... would be finishing up with ginjo and tsukishima. kurosaki had defeated them, which then resulted in everyone feeling... both victorious and let down at the same time. it wasn't an easy win, at least not for their group, but they had did it.

they had done it, and he was happy for them all. that was the last thing he had remembered before waking up here.

but where was here, exactly?

ishida wasn't about to freak out over the network, he wasn't about to yell and scream... no, he just felt like this place was entirely different. the reishi felt different, for example, and that was his first hint that he was in an entirely new place. admittedly, it had him a bit freaked out, but again he just wasn't going to show it. no, he had a calm attitude, as usual.

instead he read up on the network, looked around the city, and came to the conclusion that everyone else had before him: he was stuck here, but there was a chance he could return eventually. perfect. it wasn't like he was in a rush to get back home, this could be like a vacation from kurosaki either way.

but he would miss his friends, certainly.

on to business!]

Hello, I'm Uryuu Ishida and I guess you could say that I'm new here. Don't worry though, I am one of the few that had actually listened to the words of Weiss-san and am fully aware of where I am. This isn't the first time I've gone to an entirely separate world... only there's more living people here, not simply souls.

[whatevs. soul society and hueco mundo are just full of dead dudes.]

I don't have any questions or anything like that. [ishida pushed up the rim of his glasses.] ...Just wanted to say that I'm here. [nice intro dude.]
04 October 2017 @ 01:25 am
How long have I been gone?! I didn't expect to fall asleep one day and find myself back in a welcome box, but now I've discovered that my tea shop is closed?! What manner of-

[The woman with the blond hair, curls, and white ribbons takes a deep breath to steady her nerves. Turning on her device and just broadcasting her question was probably not the smartest way of getting the answers she sought. Clearly it had been some time, even Robin's book store was empty, but some of the businesses she as familiar with were still running.]

Miss... Amagi? I would ask once again if I might partake of your generous hospitality until I have sorted myself out. I assume you are still here, even if some of my other closest friends and confidants no longer are because your business is still open. Unless of course you had the foresight to write a will and someone else has inherited your business in your absence... which should I re-open my business I likely shall do.

[She heaved a sigh... it felt like the worst of times she'd had when she was a ship captain, or when she'd first started out here.]

Miss Schnee... it seems you were correct about me, I did not stay for as long as I thought I would. Nevertheless, I hope you are well and will continue to offer you an olive branch of peace should you choose to accept it.

[She wasn't sure if the woman had gotten over the whole incident with Battler, the memory of it still fresh in Maribelle's mind, as well as her choosing to not attend the grand opening of her cafe.]

Smoker... if you're still here I could use a friend like you now more than ever. Please contact me if you have any information regarding anyone from the kingdom of Ylisse, or if any of the marines from the grand line are still here. If you do know who I am, I would appreciate seeing a familiar face right now.

[Maribelle comes back on to make a quick addendum now that she's found Robin, and had some more time to think clearly.]

My apologies for my rather rude introduction. My name is Maribelle, lady Maribelle if you prefer a more formal title. I am the duchess of Themis and a court magistrate of Ylisse. If anyone would like to hire me for their law firm or for legal representation they can feel free to contact me here, or at the Amagi Inn where I hopefully shall be staying. That is all.

(ooc: She also has an appointments post here)
03 October 2017 @ 11:26 pm
[my oh my... robin certainly hadn't expected to disappear from here only to show up again. she had done her research, of course, and she saw just how long she had been gone for. way too long, really.

so here she goes, just shrugging at the camera feed.]

I had been warned about such tricks, leaving and coming back that is, but to experience it myself is... rather unsettling. Truthfully.

[she shook her head.] I hope we can all pick up where I left off. And to those of you that are new and may not know me, hello there, my name is Robin. I was a tactician back home- and here I used to run a book and tomes shop.

Which, might I add, I want to pick up again. Perhaps I will try and expand it to sell more weapons than before... hmm..

[she nods to herself.] Right, that was what I mostly wanted to address. Thank you.

[Jaune seems to have exhaled a deep breath just prior to beginning the video. For once, he's not in the Guardian Skyrise, but his apartment. He doesn't know or particularly care what happened to his office, seeing as he quit with no notice. Biting his lip and twisting his hands nervously, it's clearly awkward for him, but he looks cleaner than he did. Healthier.]

I heard the world exploded or something again while I was gone. And Emerald's famous now, making the world exploding less of a shock. So I guess I'm just going to ask if I missed anything important and say hi to all the new arrivals.

Hi all the new arrivals. I'm Jaune.

[A forced shrug of his shoulders, he leans back a little as if to get away from the camera.]

I found another job, one I think that's going to work out. But there are some obstacles-- like officially learning how to drive. [Look he can drive/fly just fine but he's put off taking any tests so he's been driving without a license when he's needed to.]

I don't know as much stuff as some people who've been in Genessia, but I've been here a while and I've read everything the GSRF has about what they've found out. I don't necessarily understand everything, I'm not a scientist, but if you ever have any questions, I'll try to answer them as best as I can in...less scienc-y terms.

[He ends the feed.]

[Dorian smiles and gives a quaint wave a greeting before he addresses the network. His surroundings are smaller, not the modern trappings of his own office, but the stone masoned and naturally lit walls of his office at Fairy Tail.]

Good afternoon, everyone. I'd like to talk, today, about Time and, more specifically, the record thereof. You see, through quite a bit of research I'll not bore you with, I've determined the calendar utilized here correlates well enough with my own. The 10th month of the calendar used by Genessia and its environs began yesterday, at midnight. It is referred to as 'October'. In my own world, Frumentum or as it's referred to by the common folk "Harvestmere" will be beginning in roughly two days time. We have 12 months, divided into 30 days each. If Genessia continues on a path consistent with its previous course, its calendar year consists of 365 days, save for every 4th year, when some brilliant scholar ages ago realized they were losing time and devised a rough patching that's consisted into the present day. I've of course not been around here long enough to have experienced this mythical "leap year", but Genessia's calendar, along with many of its residents, seem to hail for "Earth". It's the "Roman" calendar, which is a rather interesting topic in regards to both Earth and Thedas, but, well...

[He clears his throat, turning his gaze to an open journal before him.] I digress grossly.

Last month on Thedas, we began the month with the Annum "All Souls Day", and it would seem there are several similar holidays at the end of this Genessian month. I've read about several of them, but I'm curious what your traditions are. In Thedas, the holiday is rather dour. We dress as ghosts and parade about at midnight, very sad. We don't even get a feast! What do you do?

[A woman's face is perfectly framed in the communicator screen, neither too close nor too far. Her blue-eyed gaze is serious, not a trace of warmth reflected in her elegant features.]

I will keep my queries brief, and I would appreciate it if the answers supplied in kind were kept succinct.

[Funny how her appreciation sounds a lot more like an irrefutable demand. Her head inclines slightly as if to indicate gratitude, though vocally she gives none.]

First, I would like a status update on what is being done to remove ourselves from this situation. Is there an organized effort. Are studies being conducted.

[No questions, just statements that require explanation.]

Second, I would like a list of names of those who have been within this realm the longest, including the date of arrival. If you were able to return to your home at any point, whether through the Dream Docks or other methods, I would also like a summary of what you experienced.

Third, and last, I wish to know the structure of your emergency response personnel. If there is a breach in the barriers, who responds? What kind of leadership has been set in place for such events?

[Her chin lifts imperiously as a means of indicating that her orders requests are given in completion.]

I thank you for your assistance in this matter. Should you wish to contact me at a future date, my name is Winter Schnee. But I trust that your responses will be punctual.

['Trust'...'insist'...same thing. The feed ends crisply.]

* * * * *

[Private to Weiss]

[This follows just seconds after her initial public announcement, and her tone is just as brisk. However, there's just the faintest incline of her snowy brows to hint at her true concern for her sister.]

How long have you been a part of this world?

[No formal greetings, no 'how nice it is to see you's. This is no time for pleasantries as far as Winter is concerned.]

[The video clicks on and Spock can be seen in his natural habitat his lab at the Genessia Research Foundation. Everything is scarely in order, with not a single beaker out of place. If anyone knows him well enough, they might notice the slightest etchings of fatigue on his features.]

Good evening. As some of you may know I have been studying the barrier which surrounds us, but as I am currently unable to get in close proximity of it my data is limited. I am curious if anyone has and knowledge and/or experience with barriers, this one or otherwise who might be willing to impart that knowledge onto me. I believe it would greatly expedite my progress.

I am also interested in collecting information from everyone about the worlds in which you are all from and your own traits and lives to see if there is some shared attribute which might have attracted whoever is behind out joint abductions and links us all together. If we can determine the reason we were taken then perhaps we can determine what we it is we must do to return to our homes.
26 September 2017 @ 12:23 am
At the risk of becoming public enemy number one because of a bunch of close-minded fools who think they know what is right, I'd like to offer my services to anyone who would like to practice combat against the empty spirits from outside the barrier.

I killed four types during the last breach and am now able to summon them to my side. Anyone interested in learning to protect themselves in the unfortunately event of a future breach should contact me. I won't be holding it in a set location lest some of the idiots decide to stage a protest over something that's literally a part of my soul to be able to do.

[ It's something small, but she'd rather show that it's a useful skill and not some abomination. It'll also help her practice her summoning. And this is definitely something her father won't want to get involved with either, she's sure, especially since she's identified it as controversial. ]
25 September 2017 @ 07:41 pm
[Hello Genessia have one very pissed off and confused looking redhead]

Stark, is this your idea of a joke? If it is I could kill you with my hands tied behind my back and blindfolded. [She is telling the truth.... maybe, but there is no real heat behind her words.]

Where the hell am I?
24 September 2017 @ 03:58 pm
Hey world. Real quick.

Name's Neal Cassidy.

I'm looking for a job.

I can do a lot of different things. [It's what happens when you spend several hundred years hopping between worlds.] But I'm hoping to find a job as a bartender or something a long those lines. I don't have a resume. [For obvious reasons.] But we can schedule an interview if you're interested.

24 September 2017 @ 01:12 pm
[He turns on the camera and he's in an open space. He rolls his shoulders. If he's going to exercise, he'll go with what he knows.]

Hey! Does anyone want to spar with me?

[They should probably consider this carefully, if they're not used to it.]

Larxene said I'm getting fat.

…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.]

It took a while for Maggie to feel safe enough to even look at the device she'd been given - more or less a cellphone - let alone the other things she'd woken up with, in that damp, dark cave. It was easy enough to understand, but she was out of practice; It'd been a long, long time since she'd seen a working phone. But safety mattered more, and the first thing she'd done was get out of the cave and into the blistering sunlight. After that, it had been a matter of seeing for herself that this place was - as the bizarre hologram woman had promised - safe and free of walkers, at least from what she could see. Now, she set up a voice message, from where she was sitting on a bench she'd found, at the edges of a park. It'd been a long time since she'd seen one of those, too.

"H-hello?" She started, swallowing hard before pressing on, forcing her voice steady despite the scary strangeness of this place. A scary strangeness she'd felt before, that still felt wrong in the pit of her stomach. "My name is Maggie. I just arrived here, and I'm trying to get.. situated. Things were pretty bad where I was, and I was hoping - if this place is safe, maybe some of my friends came here, too? Is it true that there's no walkers here?" The last question was sort of blurted out, unintentional, and she shut up as soon as she'd said it. It was a hope too far - a world without walkers. But it was also - maybe, probably? - a world without Glenn and the others, too, and that was worse. That was terrible. Hastily, she added, "I heard - I heard it was safe here. Is that true?"

[It was as Weiss said.

One day, Regis was here enjoying a peaceful evening at his home and next he was gone. Death had claimed him once more. He had returned to nothingness into the bleak afterlife only to be reawakened yet again. Regis didn't think he would be returned to this land, back to Genessia. He thought his days were done and prophecy fulfilled. Fate had been exceeding cruel towards him, so never once did he think a miracle would occur.

Despite being returned in a rather dishelved state slightly drenched thanks the pier and blood upon his person, Regis only has one person on his mind.

...Correction, two .

Do I dare ask if my son is here? [ The last he seen of Noctis, the young man was passed out upon the sofa prior to his disappearance.] His name is Noctis.

Noctis Lucis Caelum.

[His heart will ache if his son is no longer here in this world but Regis is hopeful.]

In turn, is Weiss Schnee still present? If so, I request an audience with her. It's been quite a long time since last paid her a visit.
