Prelude to New Greetings )


[Geez, hello to you too, Orihime. Her face is flushed, brow furrowed in distress, and her breathing is slightly labored. She's not in the Bay; instead she seems to be standing outside a vacant building in Genessia City. The rain is slowly soaking her blouse and her long chestnut hair, the spatters growing in size.]

I went to work and it was closed! The cafe was closed! Did it really happen that suddenly? I know it was summer but the night was supposed to be warmer than this, unless it's just cool because it's raining...!

[Orihime withdraws a fraction of an inch, taking a brief moment to just breathe. When she speaks again, she doesn't seem quite so frantic.]

I-I guess I'm a little out of sorts, ha ha...! My name is Orihime. Maribelle-sama, if you're there, please don't be too angry! I didn't mean to go into a coma, I promise!

After the Video - Taggable! )

[OOC: Feel free to run into her at any old cafe/diner, bump into her in the temporary apartment building, or even get mowed down while she's darting around town getting her bearings!]

ugh not her again

Some of you remember me. Some of you have no idea what kind of stupid hijinks you're about to be subjected to, and that's okay.

Here is an intro post.

Orihime Inoue will be running around Genessia once again! I have more time and attention to dedicate to a game, so for now it's just the one game and the one character. Orihime hails from Bleach after the end of the Hueco Mundo arc. She's sixteen, full of healing powers, and will probably befriend anyone who doesn't actively try to escape. Feel free to tag her (or just say hi to me), I'm pretty open to any and all kinds of RP!

She was here once before (twice actually but the first time was a CRAU version and this is not that version), however her stay was fairly brief, so she's still got a lot to learn and explore. You can find me on Plurk at [plurk.com profile] faetan and you can add me if you haven't already! Orihime has some reverse permissions you can opt out of on her journal -- her powers include a healing ability and reading/detecting a person's spiritual energy.

This is the end of the intro post.

Action for any city;

[One perk of being a mechanoid; not requiring food, drink or shelter. So this entire time, Kunzite has been on stand-by, watching the network and studying all the inhabitants who post to it.

However, today, he had an unscheduled day off. Sort of. Today, he'll be facing his greatest adversaries:


It doesn't really matter where he is at this point. Every once in awhile, a small group of small boys run up to him and express how cool he is and asking to play. Because he was programed with several modes, a Play Mode was certainly something he doesn't mind using. It kind of comes with the territory of being a mecha knight.

So here Kunzite was standing before a group of kids, a few boys playing heroes and a girl playing a princess while Kunzite gets the honor of being the villain. Does not compute, but he'll manage. The mechanoid had no toys, so he adds to the immersion by using Soma Vex, having his katars and bladed tentacles out.]

"Your reign of evil ends here, Dark Lord! Face the might of justice!"
"Negative, Hero. Probability of justice being dished out calculated at a minimal 12.57 percent."

[Hey, he tries.

Kunzite stepped forward and leaned out, controlling a Soma tentacle to thrust out quickly, but suddenly slows and gently swerves out of the way to give the "Hero" boy some room to dodge.]

"Ha, missed!"

[The boy hit Kunzite's robot tentacle with the wooden sword!]

"Damaged sustained. Status: critical. Soma Vex shutting down. Probability of evil schemes being thwarted increased to 100 percent."

[And Kunzite powers down his Soma, retracting the katars and tentacles. Next, the kids cheered and rushed in to playfully wail on the mechanoid's impervious armor. Then the kids cheered one last time, having been victorious in defeating the super big bad.]

"Sensors indicate Fun Ratio at 93 percent, well within acceptable ranges. Ending program. I will be returning to my predetermined matters."

[The kids waved good-bye to Kunzite and ran off to play something else. Kunzite went in the opposite direction of them, walking along and being on patrol. Hopefully no one saw him.]

So I was going to drop Skyler for Ice Bear and just focus on the one character, but I'm finding that most nights I don't have motivation for tags after work. Rather than end up squatting, I've decided to drop both. I hate to leave so soon after joining, but I might try again if I can get my brain back in the future.

generalgrievous: (Turned)
[personal profile] generalgrievous posting in [community profile] genessia
[It is a more thoughtful Grievous that appears on the network today. Thanks to chaos he has regained and clarified many memories that had been lost and while this happened some weeks ago, it has taken him a while to properly process it. At least, enough to speak about it further and not continue to keep it to himself.]

I have spoken of loss before but even then I had forgotten what that truly meant or how deep the wound can be. Some hearts once broken can never be fully healed and the emotions can threaten to overwhelm your life. The sorrow can become your life and all you may have left is vengeance.

To discover that there are even deeper betrayals can also be an instigator for revenge. Were certain people within my grasp there is certainty that they would pay for their treacherous actions.

I have been wronged and pieces of myself that were lost have now been found. I have not regained my true form but I have again found my soul and reconnected with the shards of mind and heart that had been shattered.

I will reverentially continue to grieve for that one which can never be returned to me yet my strength will prevail and I will continue to serve the people of Nova City as one of your Deputies under the new Guardian's leadership. I will protect you as I once did my own people; my elite warriors; my wives; my children and my family - to the best of my ability. I will do what I must, for the good of the people who reside in Nova and beyond, should other cities require my assistance.

The revelations and memories will not undo me. They only strengthen my resolve and purpose now.

“And this is the big sister in her natural habitat…” That was how the feed started, the camera being carried inside by a certain green youkai who had seen way too many nature shows. She was creeping almost comically through a large den with a fire lit, coming around the side of a large plush armchair. The camera took a moment to focus on the dozing form of Satori, open book and several cats sitting in her lap.

A yellow-sleeved hand reached forward, one finger extending… and ever so gently poked her big sister’s cheek once… twice… three times...

Satori was, seemingly, completely unaware of what was going on. A rare moment for the mind-reader to be resting so peacefully and not berating anyone for a change. The younger didn’t seem to wake her up immediately, the first few pokes drawing very little reaction from her.

That is, until her third eye stirred fitfully in its rest, opening agonizingly slowly and looking around with considerable confusion, pupil charged with a vaguely directed annoyance. But as menacing as it was it was a fair contrast to Satori’s sleepy and altogether innocent face. Eventually she stirred but only looked to be half-aware of the situation. But just aware enough to be displeased, go figure.

Of course, by the time Satori’s eyes opened the camera had drifted up and around, leaving Satori staring in the vague direction of where Koishi used to be. The mischievous little youkai giggled again, reaching once more out with a single finger, gently touching the center of Satori’s part. Just enough to tickle a little bit.

Satori twitched a little more this time. Her third eye searched even harder, still quite annoyed and rolling itself about blearily. She seemed to come to her senses, snap-turning in her sister’s direction and reaching up to cover her head! “Koishi…? What are you waking me up, for?” A sigh. She said, much louder… “You can just tell me normally, you know!”

There was another giggle, Koishi moving again, but she was getting more visible by the moment. “See how great she is? She’s the best big sister!” And a hand reached out to nudge an annoyed cat aside and poke her tummy…

Satori’s arm snapped out almost immediately, supported by many of her tentacles as she tried to wrestle Koishi down, inadvertently meddling with the camera. From the looks of it, she was trying to snatch up and punish her sister the only way she knew how! “...That’s enough out of you--!”

“Ah! Sis Nooo!” Apparently the punishment was tickling. Lots of tickling. Koishi was shouting and laughing, moving about wildly trying to escape the sisterly scuffle. The camera was going every which way, showing only a mass of red and blue tentacles before the device went flying through the air, hitting the ground sharply and cutting off the feed.

[ooc: You can give em a call back once the tickles have concluded.]

[Those close to the forest on the afternoon of the 17th might hear the thunderous crashing of trees and possibly even see a towering figure high above the treeline blotting out the sun. Yet just as soon as it appears, it seems to fade away with a magical poof. Any soul brave enough to go to the center of the flattened trees to try to figure out what that was, will see a very large bird angrily stomping on some mushrooms]

Stupid, stupid Mira! It's all fun and games until you're too big!


[The video feed clicks on with some difficulty, to reveal a bird the size of a small house trying to handle the much smaller device.]

Excuse me? Could anyone please deliver a cake to me in the Fayren forest? I'm worried about getting too close to town at my size and... this is the smallest form I can transform into besides a fish.

pianola: Dorothy looks up at you above her, sitting at a grand piano (if music be the food of love)
[personal profile] pianola posting in [community profile] genessia


[ Dorothy seems to be in a store filled with musical instruments. In one of the more modern areas, perhaps Genessia City? She is addressing the camera directly, wearing her default expression. ]

Many people seem to seem to post videos of their performances accidentally.

I think that is unfortunate.


[ She seems to have set up the camera so it points at a piano behind her. She moves to sit down, primly. Her hands rest on the keys for a long moment before she plays.

It's a slow, peaceful song. Dorothy doesn't play mechanically, or even perfectly. There are small hesitations and errors here and there. The effect is human, and even emotional.

Perhaps a feeling of melancholy is imparted, and yearning. It's not morose, however. The piece ends on a hopeful air. She doesn't stand, afterward, and looks down at the keys, not at the camera. ]

Thank you.

[ A voice comes from off-camera - ] Hey! Are you gonna buy that or what?
klutzette: (oh no!)
[personal profile] klutzette posting in [community profile] genessia
[The video turns on to a very distraught Colette standing on the outskirts of Fayren next to a bush and a seemingly large, smooth rock.The front of her white smock is slightly tinged brown and she bites her lip nervously before speaking.]

Um… I have a bit of a problem. I was walking and I tripped and accidentally spilled some water and now Kaytoo’s… [she angles the camera to try to get Kay in the shot, but he’s standing rather tall now so it’s hard to get a good image of him.] Hang on.

[The grounds suddenly seen below her as she flies up to bring herself eye level with the robot, changing the video to the rear camera so Kay can be seen in all his gigantic glory.]

He’s really really big now and I don’t know what to do!

I keep forgetting you can fly. [Kay murmurs, giant head turning to look at Colette. She seems so tiny now in comparison.

Distracted as they are, none of them notices a bird approaching. It accidentally flies right into Kay's optic before squawking and fluttering in mid-air when it ends ricocheting. The droid lets out a mangled, annoyed sound and shakes his head.]
This is like, the third time! If any of them try to make a nest in one my ports again...

[She's out shopping for a kimono as well as regular clothes. The kimono isn't necessary, but she wants to actually keep a job, thanks. Staying in the main city, so she has no idea what's going on elsewhere. Larxene looks bored, and will respond to both names (Arelen) to those who know what it is.

Jeans, skirts, and essentially sort of punk-ish clothes are on her arm as she's going through the store, and currently is looking at a little black dress on a hanger with a frown because seriously, WHY would she need one? It's pretty though. She might get it. Maybe after buying the kimono for work. It's going on her arm anyway. She groaned to herself.]

This shopping is annoying...

Where: The Mattisse apartments in Genessia
When: September 12th
Why: A reunion for SEES

[On the day of the 11th, Mitsuru sends a message to her three companions from home to meet her at her new apartment building the next day at noon. She doesn't leave any room for debate. Because there is none.

They need to catch up on things and it needs to happen sooner, rather than later. Now, all she needs to do is wait for them to arrive.

When they do, they will find the former heiress in her new apartment, looking for all the world that she belongs in this rather normal looking apartment as much as she ever did in their dorms and in her family's opulent homes.]

I'm glad that you could make it. Please, sit down. We have a lot to discuss.

[Mavis is looking pretty serious this. She's smiling softly but it's not her usual bright smile.] Just a fair warning, some strange things have been happening in Fayren for the past three days. I'm not aware of anything life threatening but please be careful... especially when you're opening doors or eating cookies or cakes.

If you need assistance, don't hesitate to message Fayren's Guardian or one of her Deputies, including me.

And if you have any idea about what could be causing this, I'd be interested in hearing about it too.


b. [Private message to Yukiko] )
c. [Private message to Zeref, Erza, Mirajane, Blair and Dorian] )

d. [Action/Anywhere in Fayren/OTA]

[Mavis is walking around, barefoot as usual, accompanied by her little fairy-type Pokemon Floette. From time to time, she turns the little flower fairy and smiles at her. At some point, she stops to sit under a tree.]

Let's stop for a bit, shall we, Floette?

Okay, Mavis!

You know, even if I can usually understand you, I must admit it's much easier that way.

It doesn't make much of a difference to me...

I guess not. And you have no idea how it happened? Could it have been something you ate?

[Floette shakes her head and her red little flower 'no'.]

Well, let's keep looking... Oh! What's that?

[In the middle of the path lays a gigantic apple. It smells delicious and looks very tasty, though taking a bite of it might not be a good idea.]

Text - Public - Morning
[ Atelier Sakura is Ayame's second clothing store, which had been open for business for some time with relative success. Wanting to change that, Ayame devised a plan to attract more customers by making her store more inviting, and tonight is the night to make those plans a reality. Sending out a text to the network, Ayame invites people from other cities to come visit her refurbished store ]

Good morning, Genessia. Atelier Sakura of Fayren is having a re-opening night at 6:00pm. It is my second store, where I sell traditional Japanese clothing and accessories. You don't have to buy anything, but I encourage you to drop by nonetheless just to see the store along with the newly added light display, and try some Japanese snacks.

Until tonight. Your visit would be much appreciated.

Action - Fayren, Atelier Sakura - Evening
[ As for the store it self. It's built near the outskirts of Fayren where it's nestled in a small wooded area; surrounded by a copse of tall trees. The store lies on top of elevated ground. A slowly ascending path connecting to Fayren's roadways lead people to the store, but now illuminated with glowing pillars of rolled textiles encased in glass tubes. The short path forks slightly, with one leading to the entrance to a traditionally Japanese building, and another to a small fountain with a decorated stone orb that sits above the crystal clear water. Inside the store is a large "genkan", where the customers can interact with the staff on the elevated wooden platforms without having to take off their shoes, unless they're interested in getting fitted with a kimono.

Ayame can be seen wearing a kimono of her own creation. Depending on the hour of the night, she is either indoors talking to her customers with a drink in hand, or outside by the fountain, watching her customers enjoy the scenery, standing by the food stall manned by random men from a subarchway who she hired to serve some Japanese street food. There's okonomiyaki (savory pancake made with flour, eggs, shredded cabbage, and some pork belly), taiyaki (cake with fillings, usually red bean paste but is also available in custard, chocolate, cheese, or sweet potato), takoyaki (ball-shaped wheat-flour snacks with diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion. It's topped with mayonaisse, takoyaki sauce, green laver, and some dried bonito flakes) and yakisoba (stir-fried soba noodles with pork, diced vegetables, and fried egg).

[The changes to Fayren don't go unnoticed by Erza, though some are more sudden than others. For instance, Erza heads out the guild hall doors, only to be greeted by knee-deep water. She quickly shuts the doors, leaving some water (along with a few fish who comment on how rude it is to be snatched from their home) in the guild.]

I think we're under attack.

[Once she manages to find a way out of the guild, Erza is quickly annoyed by the sheer insanity that is the transformed Fayren. Doors refuse to open until a riddle is answered (though she quickly finds out that the threat of an axe works just as well against the wooden ones), specific cobblestones send her flying into the air, and most of the chairs are telling her off for sitting on them.

At least, in times like this, she can always rely on cake to calm her down. Unfortunately, the changes to Fayren have even ruined the sanctity of that. After a few bites of cake, she finds that it's grown rapidly before her eyes. Or rather, as she looks around, she realizes that she has shrunk to the size of a mouse.]

Hi everyone! First of all let me apologize that this is a day late. I got swamped at work yesterday and had no time to sit down, let alone post, then passed out when I got home. BUT HERE WE GO.

Here's how it goes:

For the first day, you may pick two squares because I'm a day late. The squares are formatted with a letter and number, so please include both, and reply with your choices in response to this post. Tomorrow morning, the spreadsheet will be updated with guessed spots but for today, make sure you check other peoples' replies so you don't guess the same one twice.

For tomorrow and Sunday, you must return each day to try to guess. This is a total of four per player. There are a lot of squares, so it's entirely possible that the thief will get away, but keep in mind- if she does, she'll be back in future events, and the chances of catching her will increase!

Additionally, there are certain spots that have special items your character may win in game, so you might not catch the thief, but your character may find something else along the way.

Note: Taymod is the only one with the answer key, even Dave and Lisa don't have it. The key will be revealed at the end of the event and is in a google spreadsheet, already made. There are six treasures, two special events, and just one thief.

Good luck!

EDIT/IMPORTANT TIME-SENSITIVE NOTE: Comments open until 10am PST 9/16. Day 3 will be posted shortly after and for this to work it has to be consecutive so late entries will not be accepted.
