[The first glimpse anyone will get is of what looks like a AA battery charging up. Then gold bits of data, slowly coming together.

Then you'll get a brief glimpse of J walking into the shot, before said gold data pulls itself together enough to push him out of the way.

Welcome back, Jin. Now, what do you have to say for yourself, you mad genius, you?]

...Holy shit, that actually worked.

Cut for length and oblique references to canon attempts at suicide/self-sacrifice )

So. There's really no point in trying to talk me out of this, since it's honestly the only thing we've got left to try. Either I die, or I let a 20-year-old kid with his whole future ahead of him bite it. Or the entire world ends--there's that possibility too.

Right now, I'm backing myself up--what's left of my data, at least--onto J's systems. I haven't told him, though, because there's no possible way I'm going to be able to have enough room or power to save all of myself. Best-case scenario? I'll be able to save my data, but just the act of manifesting my avatar is going to force a system reboot and wipe everything all over again.

And that's where I need you guys. I know I'm probably not the most beloved here, what with trolling Kaitou and doing stupid stuff all over the place and all the conceit and everything, but...if you can provide me with enough storage power across the community, I can build a permanent backup so that I don't die here. So that if my plan doesn't work, there's still a way I can help my team defeat Enter.

I'm not going to hold it against anyone who says no. Hell, I'm still kinda kicking myself for asking--I know just how cowardly I sound, trying to save my own skin because I'm so afraid of dying. But I'm not looking for eternal life or anything. I just want one last chance, so I can be sure everyone I love is safe and the sacrifice my friends already made isn't in vain.

So...thanks, everyone.

With all this talk of wars, politics, and diplomacy, the community has been making me feel very nostalgic these past few months. Even as a soldier of the Vatican, I don't do a great deal of fighting - at least, not the sort of fighting I used to do in the past. And I'm certainly not a politician here, or on Lisa's Earth.

In April, I asked how many of you remember my world. Not many of you did, of course; it's been a long time. Today, though, I have a different question: how many of you would consider yourselves to be a leader of something?

[Kirby is back at his house. He's in front of a mirror, fussing over something.

As he twists and pulls, it becomes apparent that there are small angel wings on his back. Naturally, he has no idea what to make of this.]


[Looks like he tugged a little too hard there.]

I was gonna die once, supposedly. I dunno why I didn't since I came here. Maybe I still might. Just because of a stupid wish. Can't I make a wish to save everyone here instead? Hiromu has that thing in him. Jin still doesn't have his body. Our dumb enemies just keep coming back and I don't even have any powers besides hitting people with pots and pans.

I wanna go back there and change my wish.

[There is a certain Good Troll looking at the feed. He is slouched over, and there are some quite big bags under his eyes.]

I can't sleep, no matter what I do.

[He wobbles for a moment.]

Does anyone, anyone, have a way to put someone to sleep?

[Compared to last time, Delenn seems much calmer, if a bit melancholy as she stands in her quarters. Noticing the Babcom unit on, she looks up.]

The community again. I take it that these intrusions will be common?

[She's not upset about it, at least, and she walks over.]

When one receives good news--for example, the return of someone thought lost--one should celebrate, correct? And when one receives bad news--the knowledge that someone beloved will leave again--one is expected to grieve.

So what is the expected emotion for someone who has learned that someone she loves has been found, but that he cannot stay with her for as long as she had hoped? I have not yet figured out exactly how I should feel.

I'm back!

And I started a war!

No regrets!

Tsukasa was asking for it anyhow.

Inventing stuff is hard. I finally get to do it and none of these are working... I can totally do it, really! But, uh, can somebody look over these anyway?

[Attached are various scrapped designs, drawn out on scanned-in graph paper and recorded on video with K'nex replicas, for a vehicle-mounted cannon that shoots KFC. ...Saying there's context really wouldn't help.]

[Greetings, community. You have a beautiful alien woman staring at you. If it was that kind of sci fi premise, you might be in for a fun escapade.

However, this is NOT that kind of sci fi premise, and she is looking at you like she's not going to take any bullshit.]

This is Ambassador Delenn of the Minbari Federation, aboard the White Star. I have received your transmissions, though your identification code is unknown to us. Please identify yourselves and explain how you have accessed our channels.

So. Backups. And I mean the computer kind.

Anyone ever hear of backing up an entire person?
13 May 2015 @ 07:07 pm
Um... so I've set up a shop now to sell all those plushies I was making. I've made a lot more, too! If there's anybody else you want me to try, please ask. It doesn't have to be someone who's here or used to be here.

[Insert link. The plushies are very cute, and while Karen convinced her to price them higher than the mass-produced stuff you find in stores, they're still a little underpriced when you account for labour. Retasu why.]

Also, ah, I was looking around after I set this up and... I guess someone made earrings of my castanets? I don't even have pierced ears, but there's a clip-on option, too, so maybe I should... Would it be too weird? Have any of you ever found merchandise of yourself, aside from that one virus where everybody got some? What do you think?

...There are also some very strange things on here. I'm not sure what "demon panties" are supposed to do and I don't think I want to know.
11 May 2015 @ 06:03 pm
So, uh... there was no virus last month.

That doesn't mean there's gonna be a worse one, does it?

Please no horrible death virus again.

[It is a bright and sunny day in New York City.

Judging from the way people are dunking water on themselves and staying in the shade, it's also a little too hot.

Stanley and a mousy girl are under a tree. There are big leaves flapping, the work of Stanley in an effort to keep cool.]

...so that's why you can cook things using mirrors and sunlight.

Wow! I never thought of that!

Well, you lived most of your life in a place without sunlight. Better late than never, right? Speaking of which, I need to get home.

[The girl's stomach rumbles.]

Heehee! Goodbye, Annette!


[It is then Stanley notices that he is on the feed.]

How about that! [He snaps his Thumb, its trademark hum and glow present.] Today's a good day to try it out, right?

Um... Does anybody have advice for if you've started to dislike your birthday or be afraid of what might happen?

How many of you here now have been here long enough to know others from my world? The Fire Nation specifically, but the other nations, too.
22 April 2015 @ 08:17 pm

Makoto being dumb )

...I probably should have asked if anyone had a birthday first. --BUT STILL. It's cool, right? I bet some people would use it all the time!

Can you guys make yourselves, too?

[Sena comes onto screen holding a sign that announces a date and a time in Japanese. Those who know the language can read that it says Friday at 7:00.]

I'm Kashiwazaki Sena, your host and goddess. I'm inviting all of you to join my gaming club. This is when we'll have our first meeting.

[She lowers the sign.]

I'm also very busy and very important, so I'll be taking applications for the less important Vice President.

Do you know the feeling, when a bit of one's past comes back at a completely unexpected moment, ruining anotherwise lovely day? Quite frustrating.

In related news, how would you suggest going about telling a child that under no circumstances will you fullfill their dream of being turned into a giant world-ending comet?

Children these days. You'd think death-eyes would be enough, but no, they always want more.

Sometimes I wonder why Riders are an inspiration to the younger generation.

And then I find something like this on my phone feed and I smile a little in before stealing something to make up for the good karma.
