It's been a long time since I've really thought about the concept of this. Of everything that goes on --

Has knowing that there are other worlds, so many more people and entire universes changed the way you view your own world at all?

[He is midway through cleaning his gun, the parts laid thoughtfully and meticulously out in front of him.]

It's completely baffling, but I've gotten used to it. Magic doesn't exist in my world, and I'd laugh at anyone who seriously suggests that it does.. but here I am, addressing a magical community at large. Is it the same way for everyone else?

I was looking back through old entries, and - well, it's been a year to the day since I found the community. It's more of a hassle than anything else sometimes, I think, but it's helped me make friends, to realize I was in love with my best friend - [This part is said hastily, a little rushed.]

Thank you, is what I think I'd like to say. To everyone. Even with what the community puts us through, I really think we're lucky to have it.

[Hi, Community. Have the stressed face of a mid-twentysomething man peering intently at you.]

How would you break it to an - er - very good friend that you've picked up a Christmas shift and need to cancel plans?

[Look, he'd ask someone else--

He just has no one else to ask. Don't judge him. :T]

I need your ghost stories, community. The scarier the better, please.

It's been a while since I've accessed this.

[Ryo.. doesn't really use the computer much. He's sitting in front of the screen, hair damp and dressed in pajamas, cup of tea in hand. There is the sound of orchestrated chaos behind him; there's a pre-teen boy on the couch, excitedly watching some sort of loud action movie.]

Do any of you have children?

[It might be interesting to note that Ryo is only, at most, fifteen or so years older than the kid behind him.]
05 July 2011 @ 04:18 pm
[Ryo is toying with his phone when he seems to realize that it's recording him. He's standing on a streetcorner, relaxed against a wall, and he keeps glancing over his shoulder at a pretty young woman sitting with a man at the table of an outdoor cafe.

He affords the video a quiet sigh.]

How are you supposed to protect someone if they keep running off?
14 June 2011 @ 11:05 pm
I think I might be gay.

[lajsf the community does not need to know this. ;;]
10 June 2011 @ 07:28 pm
[Hello, community. Have video feed of a half-Japanese man in his late twenties, dressed in a tacky sweater and holding a mug of what is by the color either weak coffee or strong tea.

His smile is a little sleepy, but absolutely genuine.]

I've been wondering: what kinds of jobs do all of you have? There are three of us with access to the community that are cops. I know we have sort of a random sampling from all worlds. I can't help but be curious about how everyone makes a living.

[ text // anon ]  
[Ryo is apparently hopping on the anon bandwagon. But while the community's taken over his computer, he might as well make the best of it, right?]

It's only natural to care about the people you work a lot with, isn't it?

001 // accidental video  
[Some of you might recognize the half-Japanese cop squinting at the computer screen. Ryo's had access to the community before, but judging by his befuddled expression, he's having trouble remembering, exactly, what it is.]


[He twists slightly in his chair, leaning back and peering into what seems to be his own kitchen.]

Did you put a virus onto this thing..?

[Expression vaguely irritated, he turns back to the computer screen and begins typing furtively.]

"Community"... ? What is this?
06 February 2011 @ 11:46 am
...I think Ryo's forgotten about this place.

When he came home from work, he didn't remember who I was, or understand what I was doing in his apartment. Even when Bikky tried to explain it to him, he just seemed very confused.

So, if anyone else was friends with him through the community...I'm not sure he's coming back.

I expect that to sound obvious, but just in case...I don't usually walk in the room while women are changing, it was an accident.

[ooc: in response to this little accident here.]
21 January 2011 @ 02:38 pm
[accidental video]  
[Mag walks into Ryo's apartment, wearing her work outfit. After she pockets her keys, she looks to see that no one is in the apartment. She takes off her coat and walks into her room, closing the door behind her.

A few minutes later, Ryo opens the door to the apartment, clearly just getting back from work. He puts away his coat, glancing around to see no one is there. He walks through the apartment and goes into his room, closing the door behind him.

Mag walks out of her room wearing a bathrobe, carrying her clothes and a towel under one arm. She walks into the the bathroom, closing the door behind her.

After a few moments, Ryo walks out of his room, wearing a towel around his waist. Without thinking, he goes to walk into the bathroom.

There's a sudden, very feminine screeech before you can hear Ryo yelp "AHHH I'M SORRY MAG I'M SORRY!" and quickly exits the bathroom. You can catch a quick glance of Mag trying to cover herself with a towel (badly).

And, as soon as the door is shut, Ryo adds unhelpfully, "I SWEAR I SAW NOTHING!"]

[Failed lock from Dee | Video]  
[You can see Ryo, looking uncomfortable. When he speaks his voice is low, as if he doesn't want anybody to hear him.]

I've been dating someone for a bit now and...I'm not all sure about what to...do. [The brown haired man finally ends, looking mortified. he feels ridiculous asking this to the comm.]

I could ask Diana, but that didn't end well the last time I needed her advice for something personal .[A blush spreads over Ryo's face at the memory.] So..ehm..ejem...what do you usually do with your partner?
11 September 2010 @ 09:19 pm
[Video- RL Charm's class]  
[You can see the Charms class. Some students are already sitting at their desks, while Ryo and Arthur talk.]

"...a hippocampus for the Magical Creatures class."

"Yes, changing the well to make room for it won't be a problem if you transfigure it while I conjure the water."

"Perfect, thanks." Arthur look at the students and then back at Ryo. " You decided what sort of spell are you going to teach them already?"

"Not the Engorgement Charm, remember what happened the last time I tried to teach 15-year-olds that." Ryo blushes and Arthur snickers.

"Oh, I remember. Mr. Eames remembers too. Perhaps the Patronus Charm? They're old enough."

Ryo makes a thoughtful sound and concentrates. He makes some gestures with his wand and says the words. A silver duck appears in front of them. Some of the students stare in awe. "But it's a complicated spell, it requires a lot of practice."

"I never thought it was that hard." Arthur says, calmly, conjuring his own Patronus. This time it is a silver dog that looks like a Doberman. Ryo looks at it in confusion.

"I will never understand how yours is a dog and not a cat." Arthur shrugs.

[ooc:After this Ryo will teach the students how the Patronus Charm works. Feel free to go O:! at the view of the Patronus because not all of the students know about them, or action spam.]

[Accidental video]  
[ooc. right after this post.]

[Looks like Ryo's web cam turned on while he was working, and man don't he looks pissed. The reason might be because Dee is yelling, or it might be that young silver haired man that's actually all over Dee, clinging to his arm and calling him Dee~senpai.♥♥♥ in a high cheerful voice making sure Ryo can hear them.

Ryo's not jealous, what. Like, at all.]

So, ducks. Hypothetically speaking, if you had less than a year left to live, with no way to prevent your passing and no way of knowing how long you'd actually last- you might die today, or tomorrow, but you will die within one year and no amount of world hopping or timetravel can change it- what would you do?
25 July 2010 @ 08:47 pm
How you convince a coworker that you aren't trying to steal his not boyfriend with your...how J.J put it out?..ah, yes... vile exotic qualities?

Why the chief paired me with him until Dee recovers is beyond my comprehension. But it could be worse. It could be Berkeley.

[The video feed opens to a kitchen- a somewhat futuristic kitchen, but definitely a kitchen. It is currently kind of a mess, what with knives hovering in the air and the door of the fridge hanging on only one of it's hinges- and in the middle of this mess stands Elizabeta in her usual green dress and apron, armed with an iron skillet, vigilantly fighting off all those supposedly harmless everyday objects that seem to be after her life- in fact there might be a dent or two in the fridge door where she fended it off with the handle of her pan. She's breathing a little heavily, but her focus on the screen gives away that this video isn't quite accidental.]

So... community. This has been going on for days, and it had better be a damned virus- [One of the knives darts at her and she smack it away, which results in the blade being stuck in the wall]

-but I'm seriously tired of not being able to do much of anything here without stuff trying to kill me.

So I'd like to ask for someone to get me out of here!

Thanks guys,
Liz out.

[feed ends.]

((Her viruses are crossover AU (Cowboy Bebop) and attack of inanimate objects. Have at it guys!))

...I've been thinking....

I'm really happy. I have a good job, even though the men aren't thrilled that a girl is a blacksmith in their community. And I have a wonderful husband! Our life isn't the best, but we're doing all right.

But I've been thinking that maybe...we should add to it. Maybe we should have a baby.

What do you think?
