Hey, everyone. I probably should have posted after that whole thing with Kaitou happened, but I've kind of been hosting him since he got stranded in time, so it's been a little crazier here than normal. Hoping everyone else who went through it is okay? It looks like it, given the viruses--I know I saw Retasu during the battle, and Jin's waging a war with marshmallows or something, but is everyone else fine?

Also, now that we've got these worldhops, I feel like I should try to go somewhere, but I'm not sure where. We're doing pretty good on supplies and everything, both in the colony and in the village, so any suggestions for something I should check out?

1st Flight | Video  

[The feed clicks on to reveal the inside of a temple of sorts. In there stands a lone angel who looks around the room with a mixture of curiosity and worry in his expression. So far, he dosen't seem to realize the video is recording.]

Okay, something is very, very, very wrong here. How did I end up back at the temple? Shouldn't the credits be rolling now that I beat Hades?

[He begins to call out some names.]

Lady Palutena? Viridi? Pittoo?! Phosphora?! Anybody?! ...Hades?! ...wait a minute, I fried you with a giant laser. Why the heck would I wanna talk to you?

[He paces back and forth across the floor trying to think about everything that's happened until his eyes see the journal recording. Pit walks over and picks it up.]

Uh, this thing was recording everything wasn't it? Well, might as well introduce myself. My name's Pit. Can anyone tell me what's going on here?

[Beelzemon is looking rather annoyed today. Which might have something to do with the small DemiDevimon and MarineAngemon floating over his shoulders. You can't say the community doesn't know how to make its viruses appropriate to the setting.]

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm ready to get this virus over and done with. I can barely even hear myself think! Ugh, such a freakin' pain-

[The DemiDevimon decides to interrupt before he can finish speaking, though.]

Yeah, yeah, woe is you! Now shaddup and get to doing something about those pests already! Gotta keep up our end of the deal, right?

...Shut up.

Wow, defensive, aren't we? You want to prove you're stronger than them, right? So let's do that.


Um... [Hesitantly, MarineAngemon flies closer.] Why don't we just forget about that and go home? We don't have to fight them-

[Annnnd that just earns him a slap in the face from DemiDevimon's wing. Ouch.]

No one cares what YOU think!

[Beelzemon facepalms and lets out a growl.]

...This better be a short virus.

[There is a Jin.

Correction: There are three Jins.

There's our standard size, in classic white and gold.

On his right shoulder is a professionally dressed angel.

On his left? A more casually dressed devil.

And normal Jin is looking bored while contemplating a marshmallow Peep.]

So. I might have gone a little crazy this weekend...

Crazy? You mean INSPIRED.

Inspired? You are forty years old!

[Normal Jin and Devil Jin look at Angel Jin, offended.]



Chronologically, forty. [The other two roll their eyes.] You are more than old enough to behave like a professional.

What for? And turn out as BORING as Ryuji and Kurorin?

[Jin looks at his angel and devil.] Can you let me continue here?


[Devil sticks his tongue out at Angel.]

ANYWAY, so I went a little crazy-slash-inspired and bought fourteen boxes of Peeps. And I've kind of run out of things to do with them. I've saved some for Makoto and Yoko. I've done Peep jousting in the staff microwave. I've built catapults with the maintenance crew. I've tested the Buddy Machines' cooling and heating systems by seeing if the Peeps melt or freeze. And there's only so many I can throw at Hiromu's head to see if they trigger his chicken phobia before I get bored.

[Devil snickers. Angel glares at him.]

So. I need someone who can take about...six boxes of marshmallow birds.

One box each, please. No one should be eating that many marshmallows at once.

[Jin and Devil stare at Angel in horror.]

...I don't think I like you anymore.

You're stupid.

Oh, hush!

*Retasu turns on the video and nervously waves. She also has two smaller versions of herself, one on each shoulder and nagging at her.*

I guess this is the virus for this month? Do you think that means that the, um, the "other" one is back to being in May, or...?

*The little Retasu on one shoulder tugs on her hair, making her yelp.* Stop bothering them. You're just going to scare them over nothing.

*The other one shakes her head.* No, no. You're being helpful! You should be braver. Now go ask Kise-san about that "shipping fund" she mentioned so you and Miharu-san can get that date over with! You know you should, and a certain other person would be happy to see you two--

Please stop it! *The real, regular-sized Retasu is now beet red. She quickly shuts off the video.*

[It's Kirby again, and he's at a beach. Crystal blue water, smooth yellow sand, clear sky, life is looking good.

As he is frolicking about, he comes across a sand castle! Obviously he didn't make it, but it's a pretty detailed castle all things considered.

As he is about to turn away, two small figures appear on top of him! Both resemble Kirby, but one is wearing thickset glasses and a dark blue tie, while the other is a multicoloured mess of random accessories and makeup. The latter starts speaking at the understandably surprised Kirby.]

Try adding eggshells to the castle!

[The glasses "Kirby" responds with disdain:]

That is a waste of perfectly good eggs and you know it. Besides, how do you know if that won't ruin it? Kirby didn't make the castle.

Aw, c'mon! The owner could really like eggshells! Oooh, make them striped!

[As the two start arguing, Kirby just rubs his head. He has no idea what's going on.]

(OOC: It's Kirby's Silly Side and his Serious Side!)

There are a lot of us here who are still in school, so I've been thinking, we should really start a study group to help each other with our homework. It could be really useful, don't you think?

I'd love to help, of course; exams just ended for me, and summer holidays will be starting very soon. Until then I'm a bit... busy, but in a few days I'm sure I'll have all sorts of free time.

[It would be impossible not to notice the blood on Ellie as soon as the video starts, red staining her clothing and hands, even some of her hair. Her eyes are big and her breathing fast, as she's obviously quiet scared.]

I need help. He's dyin', he's not moving anymore. [She looks somewhere off screen before jerking her head back around.] I know nobody can come here but I don't know what to do. I-I gotta stitch him up, right?

poor choices  
Dear Community,

I have a...friend who has recently fallen under the influence of someone unsuitable. Ever since they met and became close he's...changed. Become darker, somehow.

Once he was my mentor but now...I fear for him, and I fear that darkness and hedonism will take over his heart.

I know it is his choice who he loves and who he allies himself with, but...is it not my duty as a friend and a protegee to urge him against such a dangerous course of action?

I fear for what might happen if that...creature gets a hold of him. The whole Inquest might quake with what they could do together...

What should I do? Should I let him go, or urge him to reconsider?

[Is Elloran talking about Kefka? Actually no. But there's no way for the community to know that, is there?]
28 March 2014 @ 07:41 pm
Does anybody else start to dread April after a while, or have I been on the community too long?

[Today, DramaDramaDuck is streaming a rather strange video post: it's filming a dark, cavernous cave from the ground up. At first, the place appears to be empty, but if one looks closely they might notice that the darkness is actually moving-- tendrils of shadow swirl through the air, occasionally flicking close to the camera. Not long after, slow, quiet footsteps can be heard, followed by...]


[It's low and muttered, and the speaker clearly isn't expecting a response; the feed shakes suddenly as the device is picked up, and then it goes black.]

[It's Kirby!

He is poking at looks like a big yellow star.

He is now hanging for dear life on the big yellow star, which is now zipping haphazardly around the place.

Oh dear.]

I think I'm in trouble.

[Right off the bat, if you've seen Kenshin's posts before, something's wrong. That's not his formal language. And if you read Japanese, his "I" has changed from "sessha" to "ore."]

I pressed some kind of strange device, and it took me to...I'm not sure where. I think it's a train? But it's not one I've seen before...I think. For some reason, I can't remember anything, and this journal is all I have that might help, other than my sword.

Dost Thou Want To See The Moon Not Quite Rise - Video  
Dost thou stalk me whereever thy please, community? Neigh, we do not worry about it.

However, we see there is more activity as of late. Thy liveliness has finally awakened I--

[She looks over at the creeping vines behind her and scowled.] Hold please.

[Going behind her, she started stamping out the thorny black things, kicking and biting as they started grabbing at her. Shaking off a bunch of them at once, she growled.] These foul things are creeping into the castle! Alarm, alarm we require aid!

[Several grabbed her and she yelped as she was dragged off screen, only to pull back struggling from the vines into range of the book's screen.]

The first pony to utter "Thy has seen enough licentious material to see where this is going" will feel my wrath. WHOOP!

[And thus, the pony princess was dragged off to parts unknown.]

1.0; Reboot: Kefka 2, Electric Boogaloo  
I am going to die of boredom if this keeps up!

[Here is a little pale man sitting on a ledge of rock. Only a few smudges of light make it through the clouds to show off the scarlet paint on his face and fill the hollow cheek bones.]

[He picks up a rock and throws it into the dark abyss below.]

How am I supposed to have any fun if nothing's on the line? A video game is nothing like real life. Game over; new game; continue. How can anything be fun if no precious lives are on the line? Now that I know the true nature of things, what's the point in continuing this farce of final boss?

[Kefka hops to his feet and starts yelling at the abyss.]

If they don't come back, I'll - I'll play loud music in the middle of the night. I'll kill someone and dance on his grave. I won't mix patterns for a week! I won't wear any bright colors! I'll destroy this universe and everyone in it, then hop to another and blast Never Going to Give You Up from the loudspeakers for hours at a time! So help me, if the ducks don't come back, I'll -

[A worldhop device falls out of the sky and whaps Kefka on the head. Kefka squawks, almost wobbles off the ledge, then tumbles onto his butt, off the ledge and onto the rocky ground.]

Yeouuuuch! What nasty creature dares hit Kefka on the head?!

[He looks up into the camera, then grins.] Ducks! You're back! 

Current Location: Tower of Kefka

Auu. I hate having to clean up when I didn't make the mess. But I hate cleaning up anyway.

Hey, hero people! How did you get to be heroes? Do you all have cool powers, or just most of you? And what kinds of stuff do you do?

I want to know. I already got lectured for digging a bunch of holes in the ground the last time I got really bored, so asking this kind of stuff must be better.

So if something happens to you, but you don't remember it, can it be considered a traumatic experience?

Like, say you were working on something with your friends. It was stressful, but everything was mostly under control. Then all of a sudden you got hurt, and your friends just freaked out from it and everything fell apart? But you were out cold during all of it?

Or is it just stupid to be upset about this?

[video] re-intro  
[The video opens on a girl holding a book. Though at first it's tricky to tell who the one reading is, after a few seconds she lowers it and raises an eyebrow as she curiously looks at the camera.]

...Well, now.

[Yep, it's Yuri, back again after an absence of several months.]

This is unexpected. [A slight smile appears on her face.] Though not unwelcome. Really, I was starting to think I'd never see this place again. I guess I was wrong there.

I hope I haven't missed too much.
