[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.

[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!

[Static] --What are you doing here?

I’m sorry, I know you said not to, but it’s very important!

What is?

Well, I was in the TARDIS, and [static] huge rush of spiritual power. It spoke as well, and I thought you might need to know in case you ran into it...

Spoke? What did it say? Never mind, it’s not [static] I can’t exactly send you back by yourself, now can I?

I guess not... I *am* sorry. It’s just that - well, it was asking for help, Doctor!

That changes things a bit. [Pacing.] Alright, but you have to stay with me, is that clear? Don’t go wandering off or anything, Pearl, really, I do mean it.

I know. I will, I promise.

I get that a lot, you know. Well, no time like [static] --going, shall we?

[ Hey look everyone, it's Pearl! ... and she's not in Kurain village! She is, in fact, in a white room with a large round console in the middle of it, that may look suspiciously like a retro version of the TARDIS anyone who knows the Tenth Doctor may be familiar with. Pearl's dragged a chair into the console room and is sat in front of what must be a screen, looking bored but content. ]

Hi everyone! I caught a ride home from that odd party the other day with the Doctor, but instead of taking us straight back to my world the TARDIS brought us to this strange planet for some reason. We're not really sure why... I guess the co-ordinates must have been slightly wrong or something. Anyway, the Doctor went out to investigate just in case it was important, but he said I should stay here. [ The smallest of refined sighs. She looks a little bit put out about that. ]

I guess I can understand that it might be dangerous, but he's been gone for ages! I had a little look around the TARDIS, but it's so big in here I was scared I'd get lost if I went too far. But I don't know how much longer he'll be gone, so--

[ -- and then Pearl gasps as the lights suddenly flicker for a second or two and a very eerie collection of voices says: We require your assistance.

Then it's gone. But Pearl looks shocked and a little pensive. ] Oh my gosh... but that was...

Um, community? Is it okay to disobey someone to warn them about something, even if you've been told to stay put?
19 January 2012 @ 02:14 pm
Excuse me community! If you don't mind and you've got a little time, I have something to ask you that I'm curious about. A conversation with one of the Doctors got me thinking, you see, because even though it's something I've worked with a lot on my world, I've never really thought about how it might work on others...

Sorry, I'm rambling a little, ha ha. Um, anyway! My question is, could you all tell me about how the justice system works where you come from? I guess you could call this research.

I'll go first! Anyone who's interested might have to ask Mr. Edgeworth for a more accurate description, though... I've worked on a few cases, but I don't know that much. On my world when a crime is committed, the police usually arrest a suspect, and then the prosecution and the defense have three days in court to get a guilty or not guilty verdict. People usually think that the suspect did it though, even when they haven't collected all the evidence, so really it's usually a fight to prove what really happened... anyway, I think the system is unfair, but I've never thought about asking other people how it works for them! So that's why I'm asking now, really.

Thank you very much!

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted anything here, hasn't it? I guess I've been so busy that I haven't been able to think of anything, ha ha. Has everyone been okay? I'd like to hear if anyone's been up to anything.

Oh, I did have a question to ask! Does anyone have any idea how I'd try and apply for a place in a high school? I know it's still two years before I'm old enough to go, but I thought I should probably start thinking about it now, right?

Oh my gosh, this is so exciting!

I'm really sorry for not being around lately, everyone! I had to take part in a very intensive training exercise as part of my spiritual training, so I didn't have much time to check the community lately, but I simply have to tell you all about what I just found out today!

They're making another Steel Samurai movie, and it looks like this one's going to be really good! I think it's not long until it gets released, and I know that I'm not the only fan on the community, so I think it would be really great if we all got together and had a release date party and saw it together!

Oh! And here's the summary in case anyone wants to know more: THE STEEL SAMURAI: RISE OF THE MAGISTRATE (2022): In this prequel to Sal Manella's hit TV series The Steel Samurai, the origins of the Steel Samurai and his nemesis the Evil Magistrate are explored. In this 120-minute, action-packed spectacular, join the young Samurai on his very first step in his rise to herodom!

It sounds really exciting, don't you think? I've been wanting to know more about how the Samurai got started for ages! Well, if any of you want to come, just let me know.

IMPORTANT [Locked from Samara and Grindelwald]  
Community! I'm really sorry, I know that there's a virus going on right now so you're all very busy, but it's very important that you read this message.

I'm not going to link it here in case people watch it by accident, but a few days ago there was a strange video posted here, and whatever you do, you mustn't watch it! It was made by the spirit of this girl... I don't know what it is she wants, but there's a lot of malevolent spiritual energy surrounding the video, and it's really strong. If you watch it, you'll be cursed. There's some people who already have, and I'm sorry I couldn't stop any of you from watching it in time, but I can't let anyone else watch it!

Um... my friend Mikaela said that the video was really similar to a horror film that she'd watched, so I guess that if you've seen it, you might already know about the video. But it's important that everyone knows. And, um... if you're one of the people who's already cursed, me and Mikaela and Mr. Palazzo are trying to find a way to solve it right now, so please hang in there just a little longer. And whatever you do, please don't tell people to watch the video! I think that one of the side-effects of the curse might be to tell people to do it, because that's what Mr. Gellert was trying to do earlier, but please try not to.

... That's all. Thank you for reading.

[See Pearl. See Pearl leaning back from switching her webcam on and waving at the camera with a bright, slightly nervous smile on her face.]

Hello, community! I can't believe it's almost Christmas again, can you? Mystic Maya's started getting us all to decorate the manor already, and it started snowing up here in Kurain village the other night. It hasn't been much yet, but I just know that we're going to have lots by the time Christmas comes!

But! [And she starts to look a little bashful here, playing with a strand of her hair] Um, what I wanted to show you was a song I've been teaching myself. Because one of the best parts of Christmas is all the songs you sing, right? And this year I've been trying to teach myself one in a different language! It's been difficult to get all of the words right, but, um... well, I'll just show you!

[And so she clears her throat and launches into the Italian version of Silent Night. It's quite badly pronounced, and her voice wavers on some of the notes from nerves, but it's clear enough. She makes it through the first verse before stopping with an embarrassed smile.]

So, that's it! I know I'm not very good yet, but maybe by Christmas it'll be okay! Oh, and while I'm here, I want to ask something! [She props her chin up in her hands, still looking a little embarrassed] What's your favourite Christmas song?

Um! Attention, Community, this is really very important!

There's a man that just joined the community today, and he's really very dangerous. His name's Matt Engarde, and he's using the username [livejournal.com profile] totally_dude. Please don't talk to him if you can help it! I know that he acts like a really nice person, but it's not true at all!

You see... it's a long story, but he's from my world, and a little bit over two years ago, h-he... well, he was the Nickel Samurai on television, and he hired an assassin to kill his rival who was the star of a different show... and then he tried to frame his manager for the murder as well! Luckily Mr. Nick and Mr. Edgeworth and Ms. von Karma managed to stop him, but Mystic Maya almost died because of him... he's not really nice at all. He doesn't even see people as people, he just wants to use them... so please don't talk to him. I don't want to see him hurt anybody else...

... That's all, I think. Thank you for reading this.

[This is not the Pearl you are searching for.]  
Hey there, community. Do you mind if I ask you guys a favor? I'm having one of those days where work's really getting me down and even spirit channelling isn't helping any with the case, and I've run into a dead end as far as the leads go at the minute, so I could just... really use some cheering up right now. And you guys have always been good at that, so I figured that this might be the best place to go.

Sorry to be such a downer! I'll be alright soon, I promise, I just need a quick pick-me-up. You think you can help me at all?

[The room seen in the video is dark, lit with candles. You'd be forgiven for thinking that this is an accidental video post at first, but then someone leans forward, adjusting the camera slightly, and sits back, meaning it's clearly not. At first, it's not clear who exactly this someone is; they're wearing what can be recognised as a magatama and channelling robes, but with a long hooded robe thrown over the top, covering whoever it is from clear sight. The hood is also pulled up over the person's head, masking their face.

It's clear to those in the know that this is a Kurain medium in the middle of a channeling. But who's being channeled, and who is doing the channeling? ... Well, triple D, you won't know unless you ask, will you?]

((ooc: Brought to you by the combined powers of me and V, for one night only, we give you a 'V GETS CHANNELLED BY PEARLY AND BROUGHT TEMPORARILY BACK TO THE LAND OF THE LIVING' post! 8D I now leave you in our favourite masked vigilante's most capable hands.

Um, I have a question!  
Hello, community! It's getting really close to Christmas, isn't it? I'm so excited! It usually snows a lot in Kurain because we're so high up in the mountains, so I hope that there's enough snow to build a snowman this year.

But, um, that wasn't what I wanted to ask about! You see, I really want to try and learn another language... I heard Mr. Edgeworth speaking German once, and I think it would be a really amazing thing to try and learn... but I don't know how to start learning one. And there's so many to choose from as well! I really don't know which one to pick!

So it would be really really great if you could tell me which language would be best to learn, please!

[Locked to her friends]

Actually, there was something else that I wanted to ask everyone about! Hopefully this locked properly, so, um... you see, it was my birthday on Wednesday, so I'm ten years old now! And I was really hoping that I could have some of my friends from the community at a small party. It wouldn't really be much, and I know that it's a little bit late, but I'd really like it if you could come!

((ooc: If you're not sure if you fit into the "friends" category, just ask! Also her organisation of this little party IS indeed as bad as this post makes it look, so feel free to point that out to/help her~ :Db))

Um... hello, community. I know I'm not really supposed to post here at all... but I'm sure that Mr. Nick and Mr. Edgeworth would forgive me just this once! I have a question for all of you... and it's really important!

I was just wondering what sort of jobs everyone on the community has had... whatever they are, I want to hear about them all! Did any of you ever change your minds about your jobs and get a new one, or did you want to be the same thing right from when you were little? I want to hear about anything you can tell me!
