I know I haven't been around as much as I should lately, but I wanted to come on and wish you all a happy holiday. Last Christmas was, well, interesting to say the least, but I met a boy who had to wait a very long time for a happy Christmas. I hope that none of you have to wait like he did. I'm sure you all celebrate different things, what with all the different worlds out there, but whatever you're celebrating, I hope you have a good time with the people you care about.

What kind of celebrations do you all celebrate around this time? I'm curious to hear!

[The feed is slightly shaky as Mai is recording from her cell phone. She has a crooked smile on her face as she looked at the camera.]

I don't suppose anyone's gotten any strange...gifts today?

[She turns the phone so that the camera focuses away from her, and instead reveals a desk with a broken video camera set on it. Broken pieces of the lens are scattered around it, and there was a large crack along the side of the camera's body.

Mai's voice could be heard off-camera.]

It's the camera I broke back when I first met Naru. I'm almost sure of it. [For a moment her voice is almost sad. She sighs slightly before her usual cheer picks up again.]

I'm just wondering if it's community related or something else. So any other strange things going on?
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?

[video][who are you anyway virus]  
[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?

06 June 2013 @ 10:18 pm
Ciaossu! I guess this place is kind of cool after all, I've been meeting some interesting people on here.

[Hey, in case you've been wondering where this guy has been...well, he's been around, definitely. But, instead, he's yawning as he's looking directly into the camera.]

So, how've you all been? I guess I should have taken it to heart that this place gets really weird when it comes to these odd ball viruses. I've heard there's one going around too... Ah! Are you guys okay from that? Just sorta curious, since I haven't had the chance of seeing it myself.

[He's practically laughing to himself- thankful that it hasn't actually hit him of all people because wow that last one he got was just awful.] Hey, just trying to make sure none of you are completely wounded or something- well, mentally, at least. I'd really hate it if you guys lost your minds over something! [He's still saying this with a tiny grin, at least.]

...ah, also, have you ever had friends that...well, like each other, but never seem to act on it? Just curious to see if you've ever had that experience before. And if you want names then you can forget about that.
14 May 2013 @ 08:22 pm
[The video turns on with a close up of Mai's face. She seems to be intently texting something on her cellphone, not seeing that her phone is now recording. She finishes and looks up, at someone....Masamori, of course.]

Sorry about that. Madoka-san just needed to know when I could come in tomorrow.

[Masamori smiles.]

That's alright.

[The couple stops. Mai fumbles with the phone so it turns to an odd angle, but you can still make out Masamori's face, and Mai can still be heard.]

Well, thanks for walking me home. I had a really good time today.

So did I. [Masamori's smile is genuine, but as he holds it he starts to seem uncertain as well. The awkward pause is broken by Mai.]

So, um, I'll talk to you soon!

I'll talk to you soon. [Masamori waves, and moves out of sight. After another few moments, Mai can be heard sighing.]
14 May 2013 @ 08:06 pm
Whoa, I missed my birthday.  Wonder how the hell I did that.  Oh, well, don't matter.

[video] [grabbag virus]  
[She audio comes first and you can hear Mai mumbling.]

Alright...this should work. Maybe if I just...

[And suddenly there is video to accompany the audio. Both Mai and Masamori are seated together in a setting unusual for them. They are dressed in outfits similar to this and this. Mai smiles brightly and sits back.]

There it goes! [She turns and looks at Masamori.] Shall we begin?

Let's! [Masamori says with a smile at Mai, before he turns to the camera with a friendly but professional air.]

Hello, community! We'd like to ask you a few questions today.

[He settles back a bit.] were you aware of other worlds before joining the community?

Second- are there any worlds that you know are a different version of yours?

And if there are, what made them different?

[He looks back to Mai.] Was there anything else?

[Mai nods and addresses the camera.] Third, and last- have you traveled to one of these other worlds? If so, how?

[She turns to Masamori again.] I think that should be enough for now.

[They both smile politely at the camera.] Thank you for your time.

[ooc: Italics is Masamori, regular text is Mai.]
23 March 2013 @ 12:05 pm
[Mai looks a little shy as she sits in front of the camera. She smiles and waves.]

Hi everyone! I guess it's about time I shared my good news with all of you.

I was accepted into university! [She can't help but grin for a moment.]

It was a lot of hard work and a lot of time spent studying, but it was really worth it. I'll be graduating from high school next month...it's hard to believe.

[She looks bashful again.] Thank you to all of my friends here that have been supporting me all this time. It really means a lot.

Um...I have something kind of personal to ask so feel free to just ignore this or respond anonymous like I am...

Okay. So.

What was your first kiss like?

Ah, this is so embarrassing. I just mean like...how long were you with someone before you kissed? Did you ask about doing it or did you just go for it? Was it good or horrible?

...I guess that's more than one thing...

Is this how you work it? I really need some-oh, it's on! Great! It was getting frustrating after a while, but it...looks like the video on this thing is working.

[And so the face of a spikey-haired boy comes into view, his face showing signs of excitement.]

Ciaossu! Listen, there's a problem here. See, this place keeps on popping up on my computer, and I've tried several times to make it go away. But, it just won't! I really don't know what to think about it.

Anyways, it's really starting to clog up my computer by this point, and I'm wondering if there is any way to just make it go away. What is this place supposed to be, some sort of...social network site? This is all sounding way too familiar with what Natsume-san does.

...oh, right! I forgot about it. Ahem, my name is Souhei Sasahara, but my friends call me "Sasayan", so feel free to call me that. If you have any idea on how to help me, please let me know! If it doesn't go away then... [A bit of despair seemed to flash on his face at that point, quickly replaced by his usual grin.] Thanks, you've been helpful!

Um...does anyone know how to make chocolates? I've never done homemade chocolates before so I was hoping someone could give me lessons? I know it's really short notice since Valentine's Day is only in a few days, but I'd really appreciate any help.

I think the universe has some sick joke about me and wells.

I mean come on! Three times it's happened. Falling down a well once is bad enough, but three times.

This doesn't happen to anyone else, does it?

[shinji breathes into the microphone, static erupting through the speakers in short bursts.  he sounds as if he's been pushed past the verge of tears and onto the brink of absolute panic, but he has to do this.  he has to.]

Kaworu-kun...he's gone.  It was strange that he was gone so early this morning, but I didn't think about it.  Now it's been hours and he's not back.  I called his job and his phone.  They haven't seen him and he won't answer.  All his things are here.  Even his violin is here.  He'd never leave without it.  I can't find him.  He disappeared.  Kaworu left.

[an audible gulp, a shaky sigh.] And I can't find him at all.  Tell me you've heard from him.

[It's almost the weekend! What with all the holiday parties, the end of semester parties, the it's the weekend parties, and the party parties coming up, you might just feel the need for a new outfit. In which case, Ayako's shop ("boutique," she'll insist), conveniently located in a nice old storefront next to campus, might be just the place you're looking for! They have dresses, blouses, skirts, and trousers. There are even some clothes for men- if you guys feel comfortable trying to get into jeans that skinny. It's not cheap, definitely, but the prices aren't really exorbitant.

If you come in, you might be helped by the proprietress herself, or one of her two employees- Mai and Pearl. Or maybe all three. You might feel the need to say hello to a friend who's also shopping, or maybe you're only here because a friend dragged you. And, of course, it's possible you'll have to stop that jerk over there from getting the last pair of size 10 black jeans.

I've heard some people spreading rumors about the older dorms being haunted. Does anyone know anything about it? If you've experienced anything let me know. I've never actually been in the older ones so I don't have any first hand experience with it.

But if you're just making up stories...you really shouldn't, okay? You should be careful with something like that.

[accidental video]  
[The video looks like it's being taken from across the way from its subjects in a shopping arcade. There isn't any sound, but the picture is clear. There's Masamori, in a grey kimono and wearing a bright red scarf with small yellow polka dots all over it. There's Mai, in a dark green skirt and white top that looks new. There's Masamori and Mai...wait they're coming out of a photo booth together? Mai seems to be giggling, and Masamori seems a little embarrassed but amused. Mai skips over to the dispenser and takes out two photo strips, one of which she hands to Masamori. The two rather awkwardly put the photo strips away.

They turn into a cafe next door, taking a two-person table by the windows. The awkwardness they had going in dissipates, they seem to have a good time chatting after they place their order. Which turns out to have been entirely desserts- the waiter brings out a slice of chocolate cake that looks like it belongs on a magazine cover for Mai, and an elaborate parfait nearly as tall as his head for Masamori. Mai boggles a bit at the parfait, which Masamori seems to treat as a perfectly normal serving of food. But normal conversation seems to continue while they eat.

After there is no more cake and no more parfait, Masamori apparently insists on paying, to the blushing protests of Mai. They head out further down the arcade and...did Mai just start holding Masamori's hand?

You'll have to pause the video to find out, because it cuts off there.

Have you ever had some thought or feeling that you've kept to yourself so long, that when you finally say it...you realize it isn't quite as true as you thought? Like...it's still partially true, but not in the way you'd been thinking about it over and over in your head.

I don't know. I guess it sounds pretty strange, huh?

We've finished up the case...and Naru's finished his business. He'll be leaving soon but SPR is going to stay open. I'm...I'm really glad about that. I guess a lot has happened lately and some of the things I thought I knew...well, I was all wrong about. It's good to know something will stay the same.

I'm sorry it took so long to update you all. I just really needed time to think things over. I hope I didn't worry anyone.

[Locked to Masamori]

....Do you think we could meet sometime soon? If you're not busy?

[Mai seems to be hiding in an ally of some kind. She is huddled down low and speaks in a low tone. Despite her quite, she still sounds on edge.] Pearl. Pearl, are you there? We've got trouble.

[a split screen opens up and Pearl's face appears. she appears to be... in the middle of a city?] Yes, I'm here! What is it?

There's a whole group of monsters attacking by the arcade!

[Pearl looks shocked, and then determined.] I don't think I'm too far away... I could probably get there in a minute if I run! Are you okay? How many are there?

Four or five I think. I'll head out first.

Right! I'll be there as soon as I can. Be careful!
