[Naoki's post starts up showing a dimly lit room, the sound of a very Nineties keyboard loudly clacking away. The view pans to Naoki's face, eyes bagged and haggard. Its almost a minute before he looks away to see that he's recording. He smiles and waves weakly]

Oh, hey guys. Sorry I haven't been on lately. Things have been really busy here. And! And I've been doing some digging and I think I found something.

[Yep, he's still on his 'ITS A CONSPIRACY!!!1!' kick from when his Kamen War video was taken down. The screen is filled with news articles entitled 'Cybers Corp. communication tower projected delayed' and another with the headline 'Cybers Tower building resumed in Yoyogi Park']

Apparently, according to these articles, Cybers Corporation, a major communication group had begun building a major signal relay tower in Yoyogi Park, but it ended up running into some major legal issues that delayed it. Then just after my video was taken down, those problems just up and....vanish. And I think...

[Just as he was going to get some steam in his obvious rant, his phone beeps. He looks down to the message and his expression flushes into a frown.]

Oh. Uh crap. You guys have any idea what's good to get a sick teacher? Isamu just sent me a mail that Yuko-sensei was just admitted to a hospital and wants my help to wish her well. Still wish I knew why he keeps asking for my help when it comes to dealing with her...

[The feed cuts off there as he murmurs silently]

I've been here for almost six years now. Isn't anybody going to throw me a party?
21 February 2014 @ 12:21 pm
I've noticed there's not as many people here as they used to be. My book used to be very busy but it doesn't look the same anymore. But that means, like me, a lot of you are losing friends. So, I'd like to do something to remember them by.

[She stops to think, to try to put it into words.] It seems it would be a good way to say good-bye to them all but I don't have many ideas. Since I'd like to think they're happy in their world, I'd like for it not to seem too sad. Do any of you have any ideas?

Um, community, I have a few questions...

Do you ever feel like you're repeating what someone you cared about a lot did, even though when they did it you knew they were making things worse?

Also, ah... Have you ever been afraid to like someone? Or not sure if you liked them, but afraid of the answer either way?

[The video's got an odd pinkish tint to it, and there's a young woman with wings staring at it in confusion.]

Okay, is this a new feature of this thing? Couldn't Yan Lin have given me an instruction manual?

Um, hello? Weird...duck...thing... I don't suppose anyone could explain this to me?

Has anyone been forced to share messages from the community before? Anything I've tried to do in the past few days has turned into posting this.

[personal profile] archerartemis says that Lydia Carlton is offering to get first edition copies of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to anyone willing to reimburse her.

[personal profile] aquaticrush is kind enough to remind people that I've been gathering a list of everybody who's still here and has special abilities, so that we can try to organize some efforts to minimize the damage the community sometimes does.

[ Natsume doesn't quite realize that he visibly looks like he's been crying when he switches the video on. Those items they had for the virus are gone and he..

Well, what he got was something he never wanted to lose because it was something that couldn't exist in this time anymore. So a little frantically, he's made his post with his eyes looking slightly red, slightly puffy, slightly wet like he tried to wipe them but didn't quite wait to make sure everything was clear. ]

Did-- [ Oh, his voice cracked for a second there. ] Is there any way to get items from viruses back? It's just something little, it's not.. a huge deal, but I thought it would be nice to see for even just a little bit longer.

[ Natsume, you've been crying. It's obviously a big deal to you. ]

There's something I've been meaning to do for a while now, and since things are quieter here it's about time I got to it.

A lot of the members here have special abilities. While we still don't know the cause of the viruses, and the scientists who were investigating them seem to have left, I believe it should be possible to combat some of the effects of viruses. Some of the time, at least.

In order to do that, I think we should have a list of members with powers and what their powers are. Worldhoppers too- so that anyone who can't stay on their world knows who to contact.

I'll start with myself. I'm Sumimura Masamori, and I'm a kekkaishi. That means I can create and control barriers, and protect or destroy anything inside those barriers. I can make a few other things too, shikigami and basic wards, but for the most part I work with barriers. I can also worldhop, if necessary.

If you have special abilities, comment here.

text - there's a killer on the loose  
As a warning to anyone in the Mitakihara area, as per our 'friend's earlier post, it would appear there is a Puella Magi hunting other Puella Magi.

It is currently only in my world as far as I am aware, but given our tangled timelines I can't guarantee that it isn't happening, has yet to happen or has already happened from the perspective of everyone else. If it's the latter, I would request any information on the topic; we're liable to be next.

Whoever is responsible doesn't appear to know about our primary weakness, but I would expect they are far from sane. Take care.

Kirika and I will be maintaining a low profile; with luck, the two of us will be able to guarantee our own safety. Do not worry about us.

-Oriko Mikuni.

Have you ever lied to try to keep someone from being hurt? From worrying?

If that person found out, did they forgive you?

Would you still do the same thing over if you had the chance to try again?

[ alviss is in a pretty recognisable outfit, and going by the look on his face, he seems to be pretty confused by it. enjoy his biceps. and enjoy his weird red tattoos again, which you can now see even cover his chest in the form of a strange flame shape. also, there's a fairy asleep on his shoulder? cute. ]

Is this supposed to be a virus? I don't get it at all. They're just clothes. [ he plucks at the tunic. ] Weird, but not really that bad... I guess it's typical of the community for this to still be an annoyance, though. This had better be over soon. I wanted to make sure that I had longer sleeves on by the time I get to Reginlief...

[ he cringes, uncomfortable, but quickly shakes his head. ]

The War Games are starting in just a few days. It's going to be even less likely that I'll be able to spend any time on the community at all, so don't be surprised if it's a while until anyone hears from me again. And... [ sigh. ]

I don't intend to die, but it can't be said that that's not a possibility. I'm only warning everyone that I might not come back from this war. I can't be sure of anything yet... except that I won't lose easily.

[ ... ] Does anyone know why it's clothes?
07 September 2013 @ 10:26 pm
[Today Mai does not look quite like herself. She is dressed in a red kimono and her hair has been styled. Her cheeks are tinged pink as she frowns at the camera.]

Considering I woke up in this all, it must be the community, right? Otherwise I should be really worried about someone who would break in and change all my clothes and my hair while I was asleep.

[She curls in on herself slightly and mumbles.]

I haven't worn a kimono since I was a kid.

So, um, is anyone else having this sort of problem?

It's amazing how many places you can get cell phone reception these days, isn't it?

Ah, but not everyone here has cell phones! How do you communicate across long distances, then?
01 September 2013 @ 03:13 pm
Some of you might have noticed that I'm back now, but I just wanted to make sure everyone knew I was safe. It was.. something of an ordeal, but Edgar and I are both alright. That man was hiding an entire box's worth of requests for my services as a fairy doctor though, so it's no wonder I didn't have enough work. I thought I was going to have to go back to Scotland to study some more because I wasn't getting enough to do around here.

That said, Nico and I are going through these requests but I'd like to open the opportunity up to you as well. Does anyone here have any strange, inexplicable circumstances happening around them? Even simple things like socks disappearing or items being misplaced can be the work of fairies. If it seems dangerous, please don't hesitate to ask either since it might just be an unfortunate misunderstanding between you and the fairy. I'm open to any questions or curiosities as well.

[On the feed today, a girl, unfamiliar to the community, seems to pop up. At first, her face seems a bit serious...but it eventually lightens up into a little, cutesy smile as she brings her hands up to her cheeks.]

It's so cute! What is that, a little duck! Ooh, I wish I had one, too, I would raise it to be a cute thing forever...! ...hey, wait.

[It seems to dawn on her that, whatever this thing was, it was letting her see some sort of...community? Whatever it was, it had her curious, but not curious enough to deter her away from the fact that there's a cute little duck.

...but no, really, she seems to have focused now, seemingly inspecting her scroll as to what in the world this could be. Someone...help her out? Scare her a bit into making it seem like a youkai had invaded it? She'll just be entranced by the duck for the time being.]

I wonder what all of these things are... [...okay, at least she's not...fawning over it...]

In the spirit of getting to know you all better, tell me about your families and how you get along with them.

Not much to say about mine. I have an aunt back in Paris and a cousin who I'm currently visiting with.

I know it now. This community's totally tsun for me. I'd rather it be all deredere for me than keep cutting me off and bringing me back. (/゚Д゚)/ That'd be boring, though. Nothing like being constantly spoiled to spoil the fun for you. But can't it spoil me just now and then? I'd like to receive cake and candies. Wonderful, delicious sweets. o(*゚▽゚*)o That'd be a better show of its dedication.

[Mai looks confused and bashful as she looks at the camera.]

Hey guys. I noticed there were already some posts that are kind of similar, but I guess I'll just add one to the collection.

You see, there were these photos pinned up next to my desk. I don't remember ever getting them taken...or who the other person is.

[She holds up a strip from a photo booth. It, of course, features herself and Masamori.]

I'm a little worried. I really have no idea how I got these or who he is! I was hoping maybe someone here might have an idea?
