Eh... you're really useless if you won't even take me back!

[She's attempting to be insulting - because that always makes electronic things work, doesn't it? - but it comes out whiny and somewhat desperate. It's been so long since it's let her connect to the community and she just wants to go back.

Unaware it's recording now, the view shakes up and down before she finally sees that it is recording!]

Eh? Ehhhh?! It's back! Hehehe! [Happy, the next view is a closeup of her sweater, as she hugs the phone to her chest and begins to spin around. It takes a few seconds to get ahold of herself. Her usual line would be something like "aren't you all lucky to be able to see me again?" but she's grown somewhat.]

This is probably a big day for both of us then, huh? [Grown somewhat.] Is everybody still here?!

So, I found out something I really wish I hadn't. And about someone I hate.

Anyone ever find themselves feeling bad for someone like that?

So, um... why are there cleavage window sweaters all over the Internet now?

How many people am I not going to be able to look in the face this week this is embarrassing at least it's not like the time with that guy wearing my clothes for some reason and he looked better than I did what.

I think these jokes just want to embarrass people.

An interview with an Artist )
"Bloody Hell. You try to be kind, to atone for all past wrongs...and what do you get for it? A day of yelling at a damn floating brain and a bloody headache."

"You know humanity, community. Do you believe that we would stay our hand just to save perfect beauty? Or would we once again blind ourselves in our greed?"

[A certain magical girl appears on the screen, holding up her weapons. They are indeed still green castanets, but they no longer resemble undetailed produce; they now have a more complex design and are the two-part type that can clack individually, and where the original metal clappers on the ends had gone, there's now a weird heart with the same two-fish insignia as the marking on her chest. Overall, they look similar, but less "designed to be easy and fast to draw" and more "designed to sell toys".]

I, um, I suppose this is an upgrade? But they don't really do anything different, except I can sort of dual-wield now instead of having to use them both to shoot one round of water. Anyway, that isn't really the point here, so, um...

If everyone else you know has gotten "upgrades" when they were actually on active duty, and you've been a magical girl over five years and just had this happen when you were fighting someone else's enemies, that doesn't say anything about you, does it? Please don't let it mean I'm terrible.

Do you think this place has done good for you?

Mama! Mama look!

[A tiny girl with bright red hair proudly holds up a handful of slightly wilted flowers.]

These are mine! I planted them! Mr. Takananana said I did a good!

Can we show daddy and Prince brother?

[Then she seems to notice the camera]

Ooooh, can you tell me a story?
10 July 2014 @ 09:39 pm
I've been hearing some rumors at work lately that Kougami-san is working on another set of Core Medals. I mean, I think he'd be more careful with them, after what happened to me with Poseidon, but...I can't help but feel a little worried about it anyway.

Should I try to talk him out of it? Or just find out more information first?
10 July 2014 @ 07:26 am
What do you think of the idea that "as long as you remember someone, they'll come back"? I've heard it around and I'm not sure what it means.

Do you miss anyone?

I'm sorry that these are sad questions. It's just something I've been thinking about.
26 June 2014 @ 12:26 pm
Well, call me impressed, community. According to my calculations worlds connecting here use child-soldiers at a rate of 4:1.

That's four worlds that have child-soldiers as their heroes to one against.

The next time anyone accuses me of being a monster, I'll take that into consideration.

[Me, Myself, & I]  
[When we last left Ren, he was...moping. And to be honest, he's still moping, but now he's also confused and looking at another version of himself, who is facepalming.]

Someone get me out of here.

[Ren's trying to form a coherent thought. Not working very well. His doppelganger sighs.]

Was I really THIS bad a year ago?

Cheap Special Effects  
[It's a dark and stormy night.

Or it's supposed to be, anyway, but someone keeps throwing buckets of water in Miharu's face and another person is shaking metal for thunder sound effects while a third person is flashing lights for lightning. Naturally, with all of this going on, Miharu's having a hard time focusing on his fight with a monster.]

...I think Poseidon was easier to fight than this.

[He throws a punch, and there's a "whoosh" sound effect and a "pow!" as it impacts. But the monster shakes it off and throws him...

...And Miharu is yanked by a cable into a pane of fake glass.]

Yeah. Poseidon was less annoying.

Evidently the community thinks I haven't been posting enough. It's been a long time since I was last forcibly directed here, and I was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen again at all.

Well, if it's going to interrupt my research, I might as well try to make the research relevant. Do any of you have experience with unusual medical conditions?

*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.*

Does anybody else start to dread April after a while, or have I been on the community too long?

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

Minor Canon Update While Was AFK  
Got into a fight while I was away. Spent the last while watching videos of everything I missed. I especially loved the video of Retasu and Miharu confessing to one another.

Now then, what should I do with the two of you?

[failed anon]  
So, um, a question... If somebody gave you a present just as a joke because they knew you'd be embarrassed, but you had to be polite about it and they made you feel bad, and now they're gone from the community, you don't have to keep it anymore, right?

And, ah, if that's the case, then how do you get rid of a magazine subscription?

These articles... "What Men Think About When You're"-- no, no way, too embarrassing! And "Sex Olympics"...?

[video--see facepalm]  
Remind me never to get involved in anyone's love life again. I spent a few days trying to save one of Kido's coworkers who got kidnapped. Another Rider got involved because he was in love with her. Then another woman got kidnapped, and she had a crush on him. And after all that was solved, another woman showed up in love with him, convinced him to go out with her because she had a medical condition she thought was more serious than it was, and I think somewhere in there his current secretary is also in love with him.

I've never been so glad February in the community is over.

ramble ramble ramble  
So recently Kaaree subjected me to some crystallized plays...ah, I suppose they are called "movies"? Yes. Earthling movies.

And after a long argument on whether the term "unobtanium" was terrifying and poetic or foolish and idiotic, I realized that none of your worlds have the concept of "una". Roughly translated it means "the thing for which I will destroy you".
Skipable Linguistics Rant )

In the end, I wonder if the other worlds that connect here have yet to encounter many cases of this archetypal destructive need. Or perhaps our inevitable lust for power and glory simply plays out over smaller stages.

My people have long accepted this, encapsulating the fall behind the words "The Inquest Always Finds A Way", but I hope that the battle against apathy and destruction is still being fought on your worlds.
