☾ 003; video. ( warning for a brief suicide mention! )  
[ Honestly, Usagi isn't sure how to feel anymore. All she knows for sure is that she has to sort out her thoughts, and maybe it's easier to do that to the community. After all, she has to tell them either way sooner or later, right? She can't leave her friends on here in the dark, although she's been avoiding her friends in her world as well either way.. ]

Um.. I've been thinking for a bit about how to tell this to everyone, but.. I thought I should maybe tell a story. [ There's something a little different about her voice. She's trying to keep herself strong, but it almost sounds a bit.. tired. The video might be on, but it's aimed at Usagi's lap where she's holding her hands closed together so her face isn't visible. ]

I told some of you about that princess with the Silver Crystal we're looking for, right? Well, her name is princess Serenity. She used to live on the moon a long, long time ago, back when there was a kingdom there and the Earth was just one united place as well.. It was a peaceful time and everyone was happy in that Silver Millenium. The princess always stared down at the Earth though and couldn't help but think of how pretty it was, and so she snuck over to that planet often, even if everyone scolded her for it. And on that beautiful blue planet, she met the handsome prince of the Earth, prince Endymion. And slowly, the two of them fell in love.


[ ... ]

Fired up by the demon Metalia, the people of the Earth attacked the Moon Kingdom since they were jealous of it and didn't trust it. Prince Endymion tried to stop them, but they wouldn't listen to him anymore, and in the end he died while protecting Serenity. The princess felt so crushed over it that she took a sword to herself as well, ending it all.

[ Another pause follows, a little longer. As if the next part is more difficult to word or say. ]

It's thanks to Queen Serenity, the princess' mother, who used the power of the Silver Crystal that the princess, prince and her guardians, her friends, were born again in the future. But.. the enemy we're fighting right now, they're the same enemy as back then. The Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, Metalia.. they're attacking the Earth and us this time. We met Minako-chan, who said she was the princess, and she looked really pretty and elegant like one, but actually she was Sailor Venus. And..

.. Instead it turned out Mamo-chan is prince Endymion. And the princess actually is.. [ She finally opens the hands that were closed together, revealing a crystal lying on her hands. It looks pretty dull though. ] .. me. All this time I've been.. princess Serenity, reborn into this time..

[ Her words trail off and it's almost as if she wants to say something more, but instead she shuts off the feed. ]

anonymous; text (link contains details of the murder of a teenager)  
Was looking through the news sites recently and found this article.

Some guy is going around killing teenagers. Can't say I really blame the killer that much, though. Most kids that age are annoying brats. They can't understand anything.

So what if this guy is a 'serial killer' or something? They can't even prove the same person did it, right? So getting all up in arms about it seems kind of pointless to me. You guys agree, right?

((The link goes to a google doc with a fake news article. IC-ly the link is to a news site.))

I want to go flying. Ever since I got my Digimon spirits back I've wanted to go flying, but I can't really do that from where I am. I really think people would notice if some strange creature with wings was hovering over Japan. It's a bit too much attention for me, you know?

So is there anyone who knows a place where seeing a Digimon flying around wouldn't be strange? I wouldn't stay long. Just long enough to stretch my wings and have a nice flight. Any help would be great.

[She winks at the camera and waves.]

*Nagisa is in a waitress outfit with apron, hiding in her closet.*

Is this virus just supposed to keep us from going out in public, or what?

It could be worse. It could be worse. It could be worse. It could be worse.

[Video | Bodyswap Virus]  
[When the video snaps on, you can see that the person on the video is Oriko. However, the voice and mannerisms? 100% Tsubomi.]

Um... looks like I got hit with this new virus, too. It's... so awkward, really. [Older body, different frame, knowing that she has magic powers and she's been told don't use them as much as she should...] I-It shouldn't take long, right?

Um... Itsuki? Yuri? Erika? Oriko's in my body. Do you mind making sure she's okay? I know this is a bad time for this, but... th-there's not much I can do. I guess I'll be playing sick for a day or so until it all blows by.

Video; Bodyswap event  

Well, it seems accounts are maintained during this virus at least... Kirika? Tsubomi? We need a word. To be clear; this is Oriko Mikuni speaking.

Anyone else who was found themselves swapped with a Puella Magi are advised to respond as well.

[...honestly, what a mess...]

((replies will be coming from [profile] falseblossom for icon purposes but it's still IC Oriko's account :|b))

[This is very clearly Nagisa's bedroom: there are a lot of stuffed animals here and on the bed there is one Nagisa. Apparently anyway.]

So... is it strange that I realized that something was wrong first because I woke up on a bed, not because I was a girl? I think that says something about my recent life.

Uh, Nagisa? I think we should probably talk soon.

sixth; video. (bodyswap virus.)  
[ So this whole bodyswap business out of nowhere? Of course it's super weird, and of course even Kyouko freaked out about it at once. But after the initial freak out she (probably thanks to the fact she was still pretty emotional and instinctive because of it) suddenly realised this also provides opportunities. And she has to hurry since who knows how long this opportunity is going to last.

So visible on the video is not Kyouko, it's Takashi Natsume in his bathroom, looking in the mirror. For some reason it's like he's looking slightly awkward though.. ]

R.. right. There's something I wanted to tell you..

[ Yes, "he" is talking to the mirror. There doesn't seem to be anything else around, at least. ]

It's.. [ "Natsume" takes a deep breath before there's just a sigh instead. This is way too hard even when practicing like this in the mirror! A look of determination shoots across the face before "he" tries again. ]

W-well, it's just, I think I-- [ ARGGHHHH, this really is impossible! Stupid Natsume, stupid body, stupid everything! The volume of the voice raises to a very uncharacteristic frustration-- ]


[ But then it stops and instead she looks to the side as if she just heard or saw something, although it's not visible on the view itself. The "boy" leaves the frame and the video stops there. ]

Has anyone else noticed that a large number of the members here now seem to be from superhero groups?

Like a Boss - Canon Bump  
I have to say this now, that Miyuki's grandmother is such a boss. She tanked Wolfrun's Bad End in that she didn't even flinch. It was honestly the most amazing thing in the world, even if we came close to losing the house. Miyuki's grandmother is just amazing, and she didn't even bat an eye at Candy. Just accepted her existence without questioning it.

Also, she offered Wolfrun something cool to eat, but he was being a jerk as usual. But I think he actually blushed when Miyuki's grandmother was being nice to him.

But then we discovered something that Grandma Hoshizora is protected by fairy tale spirits. A Tengu and Kappa apparently.

So yeah, chalk one up for our weirdness in this world.

[text, locked from Shinji]  
If anyone sees Kido for maybe the next couple of days and he's not back to his usual stupidly happy self, another Rider died in my world. A friend of his, and he died saving Kido. On top of it, the guy gave me something that probably would have let him survive the battle, but...

Anyway, I just found out about it now. I tried to stop Kido and Yui from blaming themselves, but...I think I blew it. Yui ran off, and I think I left Kido worse off than before. I'm not exactly sure how to fix this.

[11-12 appears, looking much happier than last time he'd been seen on the community.]

It's been about a month here with Kasumi and nothing too bad has happened. I'm hoping that's a good sign.

Maybe I can make some more friends here again. I'd like that.

So, some introductions. My name is 11-12 and yes, that's my real name and my only name. I came from a place called The Village, which existed as a sort of subconscious dream world and... it's difficult to explain more than that. It's not something I really understand, even now.

Anyway, I'd like to meet more of you and talk to more of you so I guess just reply and we can maybe be friends.

Oh, and I'd like to get a new worldhop device... Yuri was going to talk to Greed but if somebody else has another they can make for me or something...? I'd appreciate any help with that.

( video. )  
[ by this point, now that they know about it, people might be starting to pick up on the differences between the two yuugis - and the one sitting in front of the camera right now is all angles, sharp-eyed and rigid. his hair is different. he holds himself more proudly. he also seems to be, despite his serious expression, kind of awkward, and he spends a while drumming his fingers on the desk, clearly unsure of what to say. ]

... Everyone got out of Kaiba's Death-T alright. [ starting was apparently the hardest part, because he shifts and continues, now in a strong and confident voice with no hesitation: ] Grandpa is home from the hospital already, and Honda-kun wasn't hurt after we lost him, thanks to Kaiba's little brother. I won the final game, and everything is back to normal. [ a small smirk. ] Well, aside from this latest virus, I guess. But it seems that I'm not affected, and I'm glad for that.

[ he picks up a piece of paper and stares at it for a moment, frowning. ] My partner... wanted me to say this, instead of him. He also wants me to introduce myself to the people of the community. I don't see much point in it, but... [ he puts the paper down and stares, dead serious, into the camera. ] I'm Yuugi Mutou. I am the presence that lives inside of Yuugi's heart. I believe my partner calls me his "other self", so if you want to call me the "other Yuugi", I don't mind. If we haven't already met, it's a pleasure. Any friends of Yuugi's are also friends of mine.

... [ he sighs, eyebrows furrowing. ] I'd like to switch back to my partner now, so that he can talk to you all again after the Death-T incident, but according to this [ waving the piece of paper ] he wants me to be the one to talk. I can't lie to him, which means I'll have to do my best with this. My partner recommended asking a question, and so I've been trying to think of one...

After our duel at the end of Death-T, I shattered Kaiba's heart completely. I broke it so that he can rebuild it himself and be free of the darkness that had consumed him. I can't say for sure that he'll recover; but while he may have done terrible things to my friends and family, I truly respect him as an opponent, and I hope that he finds his way out of the darkness to face me again. He deserves that second chance.

... What I wanted to ask was how the rest of you feel about second chances like that. Do you think that everyone is deserving of them? No one? Or only those who you can see are worthy of it?

☾ 002; video.  
[ The video opens on the streets of Tokyo, a familiar girl standing in the middle of it - Usagi, in her Sailor Moon outfit that some people might have seen during the time in the zombie mall. Except she's looking quite distressed at the countless of bodies lying around on the street, lying there motionlessly like they are nearly dead. ]

What should I do..?! [ Her voice is tiny but clearly desperate. ] How am I going to rescue them all?! I'm supposed to be the leader, but.. I'm not like the others, I don't have any special powers like them at all.. a coward like me can't do anything at a time like this! [ She glenches the goggles of her outfit that she has in her hands instead of on her face this time, her eyes shut and tears ready to fall from them as she sniffs. ] Without Luna I can't do anything-- help me, Luna, what should I do?!

[ But just as she says that there's a flash of black, and a guy in a tuxedo and a cape grabs her, holding her tight and close to him. He speaks up this time. ] Hang in there, Sailor Moon..! You can do this!

[ Usagi mostly looks surprised, but then her wand - the Moon Stick - seems to appear out of nowhere and she tightly grasps it, her face suddenly filled with determination. ]

Maybe.. I can do this.. [ She steadies herself with help of Tuxedo Mask, and when she speaks a bright light emerges from the stick, engulving everything. ] Please.. bring everyone back to life! Help them!

[ The light grows even more, clearly beyond the normal kind of power a magical girl should have, and once it disappears the people around Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask all seem to wake up, even if it's Usagi herself who drops motionlessly in the guy's arms this time, the feed slowly going black as only Tuxedo Mask's voice is still heard, franctically calling out to her. ] Sailor Moon?!

( ooc: usagi will actually be replying to comments, just belated by a few hours icly! )

Ah, hello community. I'm Tomoe Mami, if you haven't already met me. Soon I'll have been on the community a year--coincidentally, my birthday is also soon approaching. Not to mention most of us have been on edge due to recent events.

I've been preparing a large-scale tea party for the community. I've even managed to rent out a section of a local park for the event. There will be other things to do besides drinking tea, of course, but it would be a relaxing event for all of us to calm down.

The invitation is extended to any who can read this but good behavior is expected. I wouldn't want to have to kick someone out of the party, after all.

((OOC: I'll make a post for the party after the next virus for the party proper, it's not this post. EDIT: The party log has been posted here.))

[Something is definitely wrong with Ren. He's clutching his head as he stares at a window in front of him, clearly afraid and confused. Then his eyes widen as he realizes he's looking at the community.]

What is this? How did it appear in the glass?

[He grimaces as a sharp pain goes through his head.]

I can't remember...

Things just got more complicated around here. My roommate got arrested, and apparently we're the only ones around who can take care of him. His coworkers recommended a lawyer, but he's a lot more than I can afford.

recently, i've noticed that it's been a tough month around here for some people. so i thought we could all do with something as a pick-me-up, which is why i've decided to post this!

the anonymous appreciations meme!

the rules are simple:

one: leave an anonymous comment with the username of someone you appreciate! it helps if you put their name somewhere too, so we can see who they are if we're bad at remembering that sort of thing.
two: if you agree, comment to those namedrops and leaves a little information about why you appreciate that person!
three: if you see anything mean or concerning, please alert the moderator and i'll take care of it!

i know not everyone comes from a world with computers, so here's the code for people who need it:

that's all! please have fun, everyone.

[...well, Oriko doesn't seem to be bothering with theatrics this time. If anything she looks completely exhausted; slumped at a table with several stained cups of coffee with that distinctly frazzled, crumpled look of someone who hasn't had any sleep in the last 24 hours. That idiot version of her has managed to create a complete and utter mess for... herself... and urgh things had been going so well. Or at least, mostly according to plan.

Personally, she considers herself just a bit too busy right now to be doing this sort of thing, but some things need to be said.]

Hello. Again.

As you probably gathered, I was under the influence of a virus in my previous announcement. Any promises made are hereby considered null and void.

That's all. Carry on with your day. Miss Tomoe, we need to discuss things.

[and yep, feed cuts out.]

[hat, hair and skirts billowing, Oriko stands, royal and resplendent, with perfect balance atop the tallest spire of Mitakihara, the recorder at the perfect angle to capture the city beneath her in all its glory, despite it presumably being in mid air (hint: magic. Or possibly one of the spheres and some duct tape BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER).

From her place at the top of the world, she preaches, master of all she surveys, seven silver spheres spinning as planets orbit the sun.]

Greetings, my kin!

I hear there are dark times afoot! Matters of machination, of death, destruction and hollow glory, but hold no fear!

I will protect you.

I will save you!

If you would follow my lead, and accept this will and wisdom, then harken to me! None shall falter under my gracious watch, and together, we shall lead into a new world! Without grief, without despair, without loss! We shall form a world so perfect none shall be sad!

What say you?

[...so yes, Oriko has snapped. Sort of.]
