I know most of you are obsessed with exams and food right now, but I wanted to remind you the Judo Club is open to taking new members anyways. If you don't know what Judo is, Google it and ask for assistance at the next meeting. The more experienced members won't mind giving you a few pointers.

[It seems like she's about to say more, but there's a distinctly male voice shouting in some foreign language (Grecian). There's an irritated sigh from Elektra.] Ask Arthur for the dates and times. I've got to run.

[She cuts off the feed. Elektra isn't kidding about that running thing.]

So the fans were pretty upset I didn't wear the original costume in the first movie. The people in charge say for the next movie I have to wear it instead of the leather one. Here's the thing. I don't think they've ever seen what she wears in the comics.

I'm starting to think I should try doing a romantic comedy after this movie wraps up. It'd be nice to wear real clothing again.
19 August 2012 @ 07:56 pm
[The video starts in Morpheus’s dream agency, Ariadne, Arthur, Eames and Elektra just finished training and they are still in costume. Arthur is wearing a mostly black tuxedo with red accents and red gloves. Arthur turns to the camera.]

It has come to our attention that a lot of the new sailor senshi appearing all around the universe have very little training if any at all. We want to offer our service to those who still need to learn how to use and develop their abilities.

[The camera turns to focus on Ariadne. She is wearing a typical senshi uniform in red and gold colors.]

I’ll be helping out those soldiers whose powers focus on defense and healing. Even if your powers are more for the offense, I can help build some more defensive tactics with you. It always helps to have something.

[Now a focus on Eames. Eames wears a similar tuxedo to Arthur's, except that his accents and gloves are blue.]

Ladies, gentlemen, those of indeterminate gender: when a large, deadly someone is out to kill you or maim you in awful ways, you could stand and fight...but sometimes it's better to disguise yourself so well they don't even realize you're there. For disguise-related skills and spells, I can help you become a human chameleon.

[And a focus on Elektra. She is in a customized black and red senshi outfit. Don't worry though; she still has to wear the mini skirt. She looks less than impressed at Eames bit.]

Or if you plan on actually defeating whoever is trying to suck the life out of your planet and its people this week, I'll be teaching you how to successively do that. Just because we can't dress practically while fighting whatever "great evil" [Yes, she's air quoting.] is around, doesn't mean we can't fight practically.

[And finally back to Arthur.]
And finally I can train those with powers of illusion over environments. Strategy will also be discussed.

[Suddenly Eames leans in, grinning.] And really, where else can you find a place to kick some arse and look so good?

[Arthur frowns slightly and cuts the feed.]

[ooc: red is arthur, purple is ariadne, blue is eames, and green is elektra.]

[There's a brief moment of hesitation before Elektra begins. Her voice is tight. Anyone who remembers the events of last year on this day may have an idea why. If not, chalk it up to that lovely virus. Watching people die and generally be miserable is a little depressing.]

I don't know about the rest of you, but I hate dwelling on the bad. It's counterproductive and absolutely pointless most of the time. Some things you can't change no matter what you do so why worry about it?

[She exhales audibly. There's a clear effort to sound relaxed and cheerful now.] So now that's out of the way, my birthday is coming up. Normally this is the kind of thing I keep to myself, but with the way things have been I could use a day just for me. That is where the rest of you come in. I need some suggestions on how to spend it. Hit me with anything you've got.

[You should know something is off right away. One: Elektra never uses video willingly. Two: her smile is genuine and sincere. That's right. She doesn't look like she's mocking someone while doing it.]

I think something is wrong. [Her brows furrow. This isn't stopping her from being incredibly cheerful though.] Everything's been great today. I don't think I've ever felt this happy. This is probably a virus, but I don't really care. I really believe everything is going to work out. [She almost hangs up before remembering something. She may feel like everything will work out now, but thankfully she still has some common sense.]

Oh that reminds me. Is anyone here from 1964 on Earth? It's really important.

[The video clicks on to an empty kitchen. After a moment the sound of someone clearing their throat can be heard, and then Ariadne’s voice.]

There has been some...minor chaos in our house today. I can only guess it’s thanks to another virus. I’m afraid I haven’t had much time to check the community posts...

[There’s a shifting sound and then clothes resembling something Ariadne’s might wear, appear to be floating in front of the camera.]

To start with. I’m invisible. And then Arthur...

[She’s cut off as Eames walks into the background, looking rather pleased with himself. He’s got a pan in one hand, an egg in the other.]

Eames, what are you doing?

Have a look at this.

[Eames takes the pan flat on his palm and cracks the egg into the pan. He concentrates on the pan and suddenly a flame envelopes his entire arm, heating up the pan and cooking the egg. Unfortunately, some of the fire catches on to a nearby dish towel.]

Hey, watch out! [Ariadne's shape is up and hurrying towards the burning towel. But wouldn't you know her luck? There is a GIANT HOLE in the middle of the kitchen floor now. Unaware, she steps right into it and falls. Seeing as she has thoroughly lost her concentration, she is visible once more.

Out of nowhere two comically long arms stretch out and catch the invisible Ariadne and pull her back on to solid floor. Ariadne sits on the floor, trying to catch her breath. Meanwhile Eames has managed to put out the small fire, and Arthur and Elektra walk into view. Arthur's arms are now retracting into their normal length.

Elektra hurries over to Ariadne, looking rather apologetic.]

I'm so sorry, Ariadne. I didn't know it would happen in the kitchen.

It's okay. I'm alright. Thanks, Arthur.

Of course. Now, what do we say we all take a break with these powers. We don't want any more accidents.

[Ariadne glances back at the camera and realizes she left it on. She hurries to her feet, with some help from Elektra and moves back to the computer.]

Like I said: chaos.

[And she turns off the camera.]

[ooc: red=ariadne, green=eames, purple=elektra, blue=arthur]

[Guess who still can't find her way out of the Dream House? This girl. To be fair it really is like an insane maze. She's at the desk playing with a pair of scissors idly.]

I can't decide if the adults on this are all worthless or too distracted by their own problems to care about anyone else. Maybe it's both. [She looks directly at the camera.]

What do you know about a man who calls himself Arthur? Don't say anything about his house being weird. I figured that out the hard way.
01 March 2012 @ 06:05 pm
I'm curious and as always I want to avoid the issue of being recorded without my consent. Indulge me? [She'll give you a second to click out before continuing.]

Do you think it's possible to control time? And let's say you could do that. How would you feel about being able to see the future with that power? Would you change the parts you don't like or leave it all be?

[Locked to Jane]

You asked me a while ago if you could do a sleepover to avoid viruses. [And the house is still too quiet even when she goes out of her way to never be in it for long.]

I don't think I trust having that many people in my home to do that. If you wanted to pick a small group of people that you absolutely trust, limit five at the very most, to stay over I wouldn't be against it. Assuming you still want to.

[A gentle sigh and then,] Alright I'll bite. Which one of you did it? 
22 August 2011 @ 09:33 pm
[The video starts with beautiful scenery. It's mountains and endless woods all illuminated by the moon. It stays like this for a good thirty seconds before a tired female voice, Elektra, sounds from the background. She keeps the camera set on the scenery rather than show herself. For those closest to her, it can be noted no one has heard of her since her last post almost two weeks ago.]

It's beautiful, isn't it? When I first woke I stared at it for hours. [She's quiet for a minute before continuing.] Everything was blurry at first. That's why I never....

Everything is done now. I accomplished my goal and paid the appropriate price. My life is over now... [She stops, obviously confused.]  ...or it was.

All I know for sure is I woke up here with this view.... and there was a cake here at some point. I'm going to assume it was the community. The people I've seen out the window don't look like the cake making type. It spooked them when it showed up now that I think on it.

Anyways, the old man says I should be resting so I hope you enjoyed the view. [The feed ends there.]

voice; posted sometime around 2 am  
[For anyone who normally talks to Elektra they'll notice something off right away. She sounds cold, detached, and out of it. If they're really close they can catch just a hint of quiet devastation. Something has gone very wrong.]

We're always asking questions here. We compare notes and talk about unimportant things because there's no other way to get this place out of our lives. I guess I did something right. It didn't play cameraman at the worst possible time. I'm going to keep it that way. The next few days are going to be busyI can't have this place getting in my way so let me offer you all some free advice: having your worst fears come true is liberating.

I know where I am going, how it's all going to end, and that it's all my choice.
03 August 2011 @ 02:44 pm
So I decided just this once I was going to dress up and have a good time at one of these silly parties I always get stuck going to.

Who wants to help me pick out a dress for the occasion? I'm open to any suggestions.

If someone crosses a serious line in a relationship, should you continue to trust them or go your separate ways?

The necklace I wear all the time doesn't really belong to me even though it has my name on it. It's my mother's. She had it made when I was born to bring her good luck. I like to think it worked until someone stabbed her in the chest with a katana right in front of me. I was five. I still can't remember his face to this day even though we were looking right at each other. The doctors said when I was a kid that my subconscious was trying to protect me...

I'm getting off topic.

Anyways, she survived for about a minute afterward. I did everything I could think of to stop the bleeding but, we both knew what was going to happen next. So she gave it to me for good luck and died.

I don't know why I'm sharing this story with all of you. I'm going to guess it's a virus. I haven't bothered checking the community to know for sure one way or another. I don't really care about it either as long as we don't have to talk about her. She was the only person in the world who could make me truly happy before I met Bruce, Matt, and Candy. 
My time with her is my business alone. I expect all of you to respect that even if the community doesn't.

[ooc; Elektra canon move! 8D Ignore the subtitles? No one else has an embed code. ;; Otherwise, please laugh at these two. They deserve it.]
16 May 2011 @ 07:52 pm
[Elektra is in a clothing store with a female companion (some of you may recognize her as Arthur.) She's searching through racks of intimate wear casually, occasionally looking back at the woman with her (if you didn't know any better you'd say she was staring at her chest), and then back to the rack. Finally she grabs three different bras and holds them out for the other woman.]

Try the first one. If it doesn't fit, move onto the others and let me know if they're too tight or loose.

[Arthur stares at piece of clothes as if they were about to bite him. He takes them from Elektra's hands awkwardly and nods.]

Remind me again why I can't just bind them? And why are all the clothes here so lacy?

[ooc; Yeah there's really no excuse for this. Feel free to laugh at these two forever. If you know what Elektra looks like feel free to note her hair is different now since she's currently five years into her future. Of course if you don't know what Arthur looks like as a girl feel free to comment on that too.]

[video | timeskipped five years forward]  
[Rustling noises as the audio turns on, the video doing the same a moment later - it's a confused, blurred image of someone's shirt close up as it gets shuffled into place.]

--had to happen eventually, [someone says, and it's Bruce's voice, slightly deeper and rougher but still placid and even-toned, smooth. As the camera swings into the appropriate position, it reveals a proper image of him. Five years older creates a subtle effect: a few more wrinkles from worrying, and a few more smile lines. It's a fair trade off.

He has his slight, quirked smile, and he glances off-screen briefly.]
Now's about the right time, isn't it? You remember?

[Bruce gets a laugh in return. That voice is softer than usual but, it's obviously Elektra's.] How could I forget? I obsessed over it. [She pauses for a moment before leaning into the shot and waving at the camera. Elektra looks almost exactly the same with the exception of her hair. It's even longer now, straight with bangs that fall past her eyes.]

When you look at this later, try not to read so much into it. [Elektra smiles playfully. She's got a more peaceful look about her. The past five years had taught her a painful but rewarding lesson.

She doesn't waste any time explaining who she is addressing. Elektra moves back to her seat off-screen.]

Yeah, it's probably a good idea to try to let things fall out as they will, [Bruce adds.] Not exactly my strong point, but the future needs less direction than it seems.

[There's a beat before he finishes.] And everyone else... uh, hi.

A friend of mine thinks I should relax more often. Suggestions?
27 February 2011 @ 10:26 pm
[accidental video; backdated to early Sunday morning]  
[The video starts with two large men helping two young women. One of them is just making sure one of the women dressed in a pink wig and black leather outfit doesn't fall over as she makes her way into the bed. The other man is carrying the smaller girl who wakes up just as she is being set down. You might recognize this girl as Candy.]

What's going on?  [The girl with the pink hair removes her wig revealing dark curls before answering. You might recognize this one as Elektra now.]

Don't worry. It's just Stravos. [The man who carried her, Stravos.]

What's a Stravos, where are we, and can I have coffee? [Elektra runs her fingers through her hair.] My bodyguard. My room. Hang on a second.

[Elektra starts to address her bodyguard in Greek only stopping when Candy speaks up.] Are you speaking alien or is my brain that fried?

That's my native tongue. He's going to get us some coffee. [Candy stares.]

.....That doesn't answer my question cause you could totally be an alien. [Elektra stares back in return, taking her time before replying.] You caught me. I'm an alien.

[Candy rolls over.] I knew it. [Elektra covers her eyes, sighing softly.]

Stravos. [Elektra points in the general direction of the camera or to the point of view of the people in the room, an unwanted source of light coming from her laptop. Her bodyguard takes the hint because he shuts the laptop, ending the feed.]

[ooc; Candy is in bold, Elektra is normal text. They had the best night ever, okay?]
27 January 2011 @ 11:37 pm
accidental video;  
[Welcome to the most boring accidental post ever. All you get is a woman scrubbing away at the floor methodically. Occasionally she moves to other parts of the room but, aside from that nothing at all seems to be going on.... That is until she notices the laptop that she is positive she locked away in a case under a bed in the other side of the house. Needless to say she's angry. Very, very angry.]

You never could take a hint. [In a flash, Elektra is up and that laptop is slammed shut ending the feed.]

[ooc; Elektra has been pushed up to early Elektra movie canon for the virus. Please do not friend this journal! It's just for the virus.]
