Canon Bump - Missing the Forest for the Trees  
Hibiki: Catch it, catch it!

Kanade: I'm trying!

[The scene is kind of bewildering at best, watching Hibiki and Kanade run around with butterfly nets, swinging them like crazy in a park. They seem to be catching something, but there doesn't actually appear to be anything there.]

Hibiki: Hah! Did I get it?!

Kanade: You did! Lets get some more!

[And there they go, running around, hollering like maniacs as they're swinging those nets around. Just what are these girls doing? There's nothing THERE. Clearly this is blackmail material right here, as they're having fun swinging nets at invisible things.]

[video - canon update]  
Looks like Setsuna is once again the victim of being recorded without her knowledge. This time, she's standing in front of a large window, overlooking the inside of a dome. There's a large crowd of people gathered before a stage. It looks like a concert has just started.

Setsuna herself isn't saying a word. She's just standing there for a while, watching. Just as it's starting to look like that's all the video is going to be, she takes a deep breath and presses her hands together.

"Switch... over."

As Setsuna pulls her hands apart again, her appearance changes quite drastically. But the way she looks might not be completely unfamiliar to some people on the community.

She then pulls out a strange, triangular card with a closed eye on it. The edges of the card are frayed. It looks like it parts of it have been torn off already. She throws the card and it flies to the ceiling, attaching itself to an air vent. It glows red and the eye opens.

On Setsuna's hand, a blue symbol with the same eye appears. From it, vines with thorns emerge and they wrap around her arm. She flinches, but shrugs it off quickly, then steps closer to the window and glares at the crowd below.

"Precure! I will defeat you!"

A big wheel-shaped monster crashes down, shattering the window and breaking open a large part of the building. It flies out through the opening and starts shooting out bursts of wind, destroying parts of the concert stage, while the people below scream in fear.

"Now, transform already!"

[ooc: Setsuna will be replying several hours later.]

[10 | Canon Move | Accidental Video -> Video | Filtered from Hibiki]  
[It's the evening of the day Hibiki and Kanade switched places, and after a disastrous (to her sensibilities, at least) dinner, Kanade's returned to Hibiki's room to lay down and think about how things went; ordinarily, she'd have eaten with her family - and probably still be talking at the dinner table with them, or cleaning up - but Hibiki's father had taken a pass, having work to do, and by the time Kanade had gotten around to asking, Hummy had already eaten. So she's a little despondent, staring up at the ceiling.]

Kanade, tell me... are you sad because I ate first? [The not-cat, in Kanade's arms with her paws being rubbed, seemed worried.]

No... [A long pause. Then:] Hey, is Hibiki always alone? [It was a rapid realization Kanade had been coming to over the course of the day: with her father busy with work all the time, and her mother overseas on a concert tour, Hibiki's interpersonal contact outside of school, Precure work, and Kanade's own house consisted of... nobody.]

No, I'm with her.

[Okay, one fairy. But that was worlds better than being alone, she supposed.] Yeah, you're right... [Rolling over and picking up Hummy, she presses the soft, squishy paws to her face with a grin.] Hibiki can use these awesome paws to heal her loneliness! [Or maybe that was just her. Either way, Hummy counted for something, and Kanade wanted to make sure she knew it.

A series of tones forming a nearly-complete musical scale from off the bed reminded her of seven other friends Hibiki could turn to in a pinch: the Fairy Tones, one looking a little more insistent than the others; Kanade leans off the side to look down at them, smiling.]
You're all here, so she won't be lonely.

[As the Fairy Tones glanced meaningfully at each other, Hummy seemed to finally pick up on a way to help.] What? Are you lonely? Let's hook you up, then! [With a questioning look, Kanade gets up, at Hummy's insistence, and follows her downstairs; the video ends as the door to Hibiki's room clicks shut.

About fifteen minutes later, a different camera feed starts; this one looks like Kanade's sitting at a computer, and has consciously turned the camera on. Hummy is, distantly, playing with the Fairy Tones, leaving the girl alone with her thoughts.]
I never realized how lonely Hibiki must be... She's strong, to be able to push through it every day. I don't think I could do that.

Anyway, Hibiki and I have a ceremony tomorrow - we're getting an award for being voted the best friends in the school, or something like that. We're going to have a piano recital after that, with the two of us playing together. Don't tell her, but I talked to her mother, and she's going to come see it! She's in France right now, and I don't think Hibiki's seen her in a while, so it's going to be a great surprise, and I can't wait to see the look on her face! It's going to be a great night, I think.

[A pause.] I... feel like it's the least I can do for her. I think she hides things, sometimes, because she doesn't want us to worry. Maybe it's just me, but... I want to worry. Hibiki is important to me, and...

[She trails off, not really able to get out the words she wants to use, her face coloring just a little, before her expression shifts to a smile.] Um, anyway... maybe it's forward of me, but I want to thank you all for taking care of Hibiki, in whatever ways you have. For supporting her when I can't. She'll probably never say it, but I think she appreciates it more than you'll ever know.

[Kanade seems to turn to look at something off-screen, before returning her attention to the camera.] That's all I wanted to say. Good night, everyone.

[The feed turns off again, this time not coming back on.]

Great Sleepovering  
Casa de lesbian. Otherwise known as Karen's private island was now home to a group of people who were going to spend a three day weekend there. Because screw that nonsense of all of those zombies and deaths and horrible stuff going on.

As it stands, there's plenty to do. There's a modest library, several rooms set up for sleeping and/or bunking with, a beach and facilities to go either fishing or waterskiing. In short, it was an island paradise that was here to tangently connect people who had been brought to it via tragedy and/or just wanted to get away from it all.

Rooms for the boys and the girls aren't strictly monitored to be honest, but there's a lot of space so you won't be bumping into each other. And it's big enough that if you want, you can camp out as well.

Have fun, and bring your swimsuits.

(ooc: open post for anyone who would be invited, ie everyone, and just tag around and go nuts for a while. Three day weekend ending around monday-ish.)

[08 | Accidental Video/RL | Grab Bag: Phys. Regression]  
[Ducks, you're seeing Kanade running down the street, a little bit of a skip in her step but a worried frown on her face all the same. She's holding a big bag of pretzels in one hand, charging down... hey, isn't this the street Hibiki lives on?

Then, something... changes. Her heartbeat pounds in her ear, and it feels like she's on fire. She trips in mid step as she finds her stride has changed... or rather, her leg cleanly missed the ground right as she tried to step on it, and the support from her other leg is all wrong. She rolls as she hits the ground, the bag of pretzels hitting the ground as she loses grip on it. Kanade hits the ground hard, and she doesn't move for a moment as the feed drops off for a moment.]

[...And when it starts up again, something is... wrong. Kanade's hands are stuck somewhere in her sleeves, her shirt seems to drape over her, and she overall seems... smaller. She finally comes to with a moan.]

Ow... what happened...? My head is...

[She puts a hand to her head and realizes fabric is hitting, not skin.]

Wait, what's... no, this can't be. I can't...

[But her tone is higher than she recognizes, and realization dawns on her face as she takes a look down at herself.]

Did I... shrink? Wait, no, that's not important now. I have to keep going... I can't stay out here like this.

[And in shoes that are entirely too big for her, holding up her skirt with one hand, she takes up the bag of pretzels that she now has to cradle in one arm, and starts shuffling toward Hibiki's house, a journey that suddenly seemed quite long and terrifying.]

((OOC: Kanade is regressed to about 10 or so, but keeps her memories and personality.))

[07 | Video? | No Consequences (day 2)]  
[Yesterday, Kanade was on cloud nine. Everything was going right. Her plans had gone just perfectly, and she'd managed to convey her feelings clearly and have Hibiki respond in kind. Basically, every girl's dream, right? (Well, minus the part about Hibiki being another girl, but that wasn't important.)

Today? You're looking at video of a lump under a bedsheet, lying down and curled into a ball.]

I can't believe I c-c-confessed to Hibiki like that...! How am I going to look at her ever again!? Oh, this is horrible...! I mean, I liked it, and yesterday felt great, but I can't just go that far with her... can I?

[A long silence.]

What am I supposed to do now? I kind of joked about it before, but now it happened, and... help?

[The girl trails off. You have no idea what her expression is under the bedsheet, but she sounds like she's working her way up to a major breakdown. Her door and windows are locked; she can't barricade her bookshelf from anyone coming in that way, but aside from that she's locked in.]

[05 | Video | Canon Move]  
[Community, you're seeing what looks like Kanade, just collapsed onto her bed in a heap, face-down.]

Ugh, the last few days have been rough... I don't know how Hibiki does it. She's just... so full of energy. I can't keep up with her. [She props herself up on her elbows.] But I want to keep trying... Maybe I won't push myself as hard as she does, but I can't just sit around, either.

Oh, but at least I'm getting stronger in battle! I finally got my Belltier, like the one Hibiki has, so I can defend myself now... finally. It feels like it took me forever, though.

[And she unceremoniously lets her arms go slack, flopping back down.] I'm so tired, though... I was worried about Hibiki so I pushed myself, and I think this morning's starting to catch up with me...

[She lets out a low groan.] Oww...

Oh, and um... sorry about the other day. I don't know what came over me. I just felt so... useless. I'm doing better now. Thanks, everyone. [Kanade blushes a bit; she seems sincerely happy. She's hoping Hibiki doesn't ask, but... now that she's said something...]

[04 | Video | xDere]  
[The feed turns on to reveal Kanade apparently in the Lucky Spoon's kitchen, silent; it takes a few seconds for her to work up the courage to speak.]

S-so I'm trying to find something new to make, since I can't make cupcakes all the time, or I'll get rusty with everything else. D-does anyone have suggestions? I'll understand if you don't, but I thought I'd ask just in case...

[She's wringing her hands while she talks, and is having issues making eye contact with the camera. Make suggestions/confront?]

It's the day of the Tanabata Festival, and Yayoi is fielding traffic to and fro from the Mysterious Library and meeting people who are coming in with their own worldhops. You may see some of her teammates around including a fairy named Pop around today, but for the purpose of it, everything is funtimes!

There's a lot of people around and arriving at the front gates of the festival grounds, there's a ton of stuff to do, such as fish catching, food vendors and other assorted games. Have a ball and mingle. Because tonight, the Smile Precure are in for the fight of their lives.

Pegasus Day is upon us as well, since Marchenland celebrates the same occasion on the same day. So try not to ride the Pop!Pegasus around too much.

(ooc: minglepost, have fun, tag around with CR etc.)

Blissful Morning  
[One of these posts would probably end in hilarity once the occupants of the household woke up. But Hibiki was curled up in bed, her arm draped around a form in her bed. Her bed? Actually this was Kanade's bed. She was sleeping, and dreaming of cupcakes and the sweets kingdom as usual, as she was curled up against Kanade.

Shhh, don't wake them community. Unless you really want to. Either way, once one of the two wake up, it's only going to go downhill from here.]

Mmmm cupcakes... [And her mouth closed around Kanade's ear...]

[03 | Accidental Video | Canon Update]  
[A battle had broken out in the beach along with an argument between Kanade and Souta. While Hibiki engaged the Negatone who had been made from the box of cupcakes that Souta had made, Hibiki grit her teeth and pushed the Negatone back. Kanade had lost a lot of her power, due to the conflict in her heart as her Harmony Power had been severely disrupted.

With several blows from a powerless Rhythm, it seemed hopeless for her to achieve victory. Seiren looked pretty smug from her end.]

Seiren: It's hopeless for you, why don't you give it up?

Kanade: I'm the older sister. I cannot leave my precious brother behind even if I lost my powers!

Hibiki: ...

Seiren: Enough acting tough. Negatone, go!

[With the Negatone charging for Rhythm, Melody jumped in front as she clashed with the Negatone.]

Hibiki: My pride rides on defeating this!

[As Hibiki fought, Rhythm charged into the glowing mess as she stretched out her hand.]

Rhythm: Give me your hand!

Souta: Sis doesn't care about me! I hate her!

Rhythm: That's not true! Your sister cares about you!

Souta: No matter what I do, she gets mad at me! What should I do?!

Rhythm: If she doesn't care for you, she won't get mad! It's because she cares for you that she gets mad!

Souta: It's because she cares?

Rhythm: People who don't care won't get mad. Your sister cares for you.

Souta: But she'll get mad at me. We fight all the time.

Rhythm: You just have to make up with her. Like always, right? Here, give me your hand. [She stretches her hand out to him.] Let's go home to where your sister is.

[And with that, Rhythm pulled him out of despair. However, the Negatone launched an attack at them seconds afterwards. With the tender moment almost cut short via cupcake bombs, Melody leaped into the fray again, kicking and punching the explosives to the sides.]

Melody: I won't let you hurt Rhythm and her brother! They are awesome! They always fight with each other, but protect each other when it counts, like it's the most natural thing in the world.

Seiren: So what? You're not related, right?

Melody: That's right. I'm an only child. I don't have anyone like that.

Seiren: Then just leave them alone. You have nothing to do with them.

Melody: That's right, but I don't want them to feel lonely. They are precious to me, so I want them to be like me and Rhythm, always fighting and always making up. Their feelings... Their connecting hearts... I'll protect them all!

[What happened next? Pure and astute asskicking.]

[Ducks, the image before you is a severely flustered Kanade. What in the world could have happened?]

I... what did I just read... I- she- um.

[She shakes her head hard and focuses on her camera.]

S-so, um... apparently there's a large following for the Precure on the internet. And there are a lot of artists that make fanart and write doujinshi... and... um... [Her eyes are going blank... wait, no, she's back, shaking her head again with a groan.] Mmn...! Why does everyone seem to think Hibiki and I look good as a couple!? She's so insensitive and loud and can't think things through and...!

[She's quiet for a long moment, before she sighs.] I can't even think about her without my head going all fuzzy and getting weird ideas. I don't even want to know what else is posted... I found one link, and that led to another, and... I think I wasted a couple of hours with this stuff.

I don't even... I hadn't even thought of her like that before. Not until I saw all this. [Kanade slumps against the wall behind her, face red.] What do I do...?

Canon Bump - The Next Day...  
[Last time we saw the Suite Precure team, they had failed miserably at defeating the Negatone. A day had passed and angry words had been exchanged.

However all of this would change once Hibiki noticed a little girl standing under the third cherry tree in front of their school...]

[Suffice to say it, Hibiki is now relentlessly teasing Kanade for going giddy over Hummy's soft paws.]

[01 | Accidental Video -> Video]  
[The trick to cooking something when you don't know the recipe is not to guess. Therefore, having a tablet open to the recipe in question is a good thing. Which brings us to a girl standing in front of a tablet computer propped up next to a number of pots and pans; she's wearing an apron and seems like she's focused on what she's trying to do.]

Chocolate, milk, butter... I've got all that. What's next?

[Which would be great, if the tablet weren't suddenly showing something else. The girl pokes at the screen.]

No, no, I needed that...! Go back! Um...

[And then she seems to realize what she's looking at. Her protests cease and she picks the tablet up, looking at it in earnest now and scrolling through. The girl's eyebrows raise when she notices something in particular.]

I'd been wondering where she was that day... she was off playing in the snow somewhere? What is this thing? How do I get rid of it? [A moment passes.] Or maybe...

[A few more moments while she fiddles with the settings, and she notices the camera's turned on, trying to school her expression into being less confused, but it's not really working.] Huh, it worked... what is this? Why is Hibiki here? And how do I get off this? I was trying to cook something...
