[There is an orange-skinned woman with green eyes and curly red hair on the screen sitting outside one of the buildings, studying it for a moment before she speaks. She's not quite her normal perky self]

I still don't understand how I ended up here. I have things that I have to do at home. I need to apologize...

[She's silent a moment]

I guess that if I can't leave, there are worse places I could be. It at least doesn't sound like a bad place. My name is Koriand'r, but please, call me Kory.

Also, and I apologize if I say this wrong, but it looks like I am staying with someone named "Te-re-zi Py-rope"?

Good morning, Garden. I trust your weekends are going well.

Now that you have had a few days to assess the impact of new leadership, and review the policies and procedures being implemented under it, I am certain at least some of you have questions. You may ask them here, or if you prefer a more private venue, you may visit my office to ask them in person.

Well, wasn't that assembly a waste of everyone's time? I suppose not for any of you that got demoted, but for the rest of us. Regardless, the Commander's announcement does come at a perfect time.

If you want to work for someone who can actually manage their finances, I have started up my own company, Wayne Enterprises, which is modeled after my family's multi-billion dollar corporation back home.

IC cut for length )

Specifically, I need engineers, accountants, business-oriented individuals, and anyone that may have prior pharmaceutical or medical experience, but I suppose I can find jobs for anyone interested. However, if anyone shows even the slightest hint of slacking I will not hesitate to fire them. Hours can be flexible so as to not interfere with schooling or SEED missions.

[About two weeks before, most people who've talked to Damian received this note in their dorms:]

It's Damian W. & Damian R.'s birthday!
Come celebrate with us on the Quad at 8:00 PM sharp on August 6th
Presents not necessary but schway
we'll provide our own entertainment

[So today's the big day. Damian feels so weird thinking about it, especially since it's not just his birthday anymore - it's his twin's too - and he feels like he's got some kind of responsibility to make it special. He's kept the details on the DL, mainly since it's supposed to be small and kind of not made into a big fuss...

But after sunset today on the Quad, he's arranged for some tables and catered food from Balamb proper for a proper birthday! He carefully sets his present for Ahki down on the table of presents before he steps back and admires his handiwork. It's nothing fancy - just a few decorated tables and a birthday banner he got from god-knows-where - but it's better than nothing. Plus, he even got them a huge sheet cake with their names on it!

Carefully, he pulls out a date and breaks his fast - it's still Ramadan, after all. It's weird, seeing the place so quiet, but it's a small dinner with friends (and party crashers) so it shouldn't be too bad. Hopefully.]

[ooc: It's the Damians' birthday!! ♥ This is a party post, so mingle, talk, threadjack, threadhop, go wild.

While Damian DID say he kept it small, if you've even talked to him once, you were probably invited. Or you can party crash, there's enough food for everyone. :D]

I find myself facing a dilemma regarding the ongoing nominations for Homecoming.

Is it ethical for an instructor to participate in the selections in a popularity contest like this? Does it show favoritism, can it complicate working relationships with cadets through bias? Obviously the issue would be bigger if I was campaigning. I'd have leverage to bribe with if I had any inclination toward popularity contests and a lack of morals to restrain me from that behavior, but I think there's still potential for trouble if I'm too interested in voting for a student.

I'm assuming the ethics issue, if there was one, wouldn't apply to the King and Queen nominations. With those categories, I simply have to face the fact that my vote remains undecided and begin my research. I wouldn't want to be caught shying away from school spirit entirely.

[personal profile] espio

[For a few days, Espio has been all over the place, and always doing something or other. He hasn't been doing his usual thing when he's not busy, which is sitting around somewhere high up with a book - nope.

For example, the fake blood in the training centre corridor the other day? That was him.

Today has involved challenging random people to Triple Triad (a game at which he's pretty much awful), playing guitar (somewhat decently) in the Quad, arguing with more random people on subjects he has no clue about (like chocobos), standing outside the home ec room in tears and cursing the very existence of onions, sneaking turnips with smiley-faces drawn on them into odd places, and casting silence on unsuspecting passers-by when certain nobody can see him.


He is really, really bored, and has no idea what to do about it.


Okay, two things:

First, "superhero" count. How many of you idiots are there now?

Second, I need swimming lessons. Not from the swimming instructor, either - ignoring the fact he's insane, I'm not a cadet, so I can't take that class.

Option A

[Grell can be seen walking about Garden, angrily. Her face is set in a scowl and most native cadets she passes by creates a five foot radius around her. She doesn't have her entourage this time since power walking would just leave them in the dust.]

Such a sham! [She stomps her heeled foot once, denting the ground with her strength.]

Option B

[To vent her frustrations properly and with freedom, Grell takes to the training center with her chain whip. Using her chainsaw is too easy, and a challenge was necessary to work out that pent up frustration. She winds up her weapon gives it a resounding crack at a few useless grats. No, not challenging enough.

She looks around for another distraction, but anyone who knows Grell knows she has a one track mind most times.]

Did everyone have a good time in Dollet? I know I certainly did ;) The beaches were fantastic! Was there anything that we should've avoided? Or was there anywhere that I should've gone? It wasn't my first time in Dollet, but the place seems different every time.

Also, I wanted to let you guys know that I'll be offering extra Math tutoring this Quarter, just in case anyone needs it (and trust me, some of you actually will. This isn't me being mean so much as me remembering Cadet days). I'm Instructor Tom Bronson, by the way; I teach Boxing and Stats most of the time.

My office is
[location] so I expect to see you eventually.

- Instructor Bronson

[For some reason, Tom looks... happier than he does, and that's saying something considering he's practically overflowing with excitement. It's obvious from the get-go: the guy's happy just reading the syllabus this week in both BOX 101 and STAT 101.

He's even thrilled while grabbing breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the cafeteria - and he's practically skipping as he passes through the Quad on his way to classes. He'll probably spill the beans if someone asks, but his happiness is certainly contagious.]

[There's an odd-looking girl wandering around Dollet. With indigo hair and a small horn protruding from her forehead, it doesn't take a genius to guess she's one of Garden's resident off-world students... if a rather small one.

But she seems to be getting into everything.

Poking her nose into the bar, demanding that the Triple Triad artist guy makes her a special Mog card, jumping waves at the beach, staring in awe at the rental cars, running back into town after wandering out and being chased by monsters...

This is a weird place, guys.

Eventually, Eiko settles down in the square, eating a sandwich she pilfered from somewhere and talking to a stray dog.

Aw, why do you have to stare? You hungry?

[Shakes her head. Nope, doggy, this is not your sandwich. Even if you do have big, brown, sad eyes...]

Oh, fine. Okay, here you go.

[Gives the dog the sandwich filling, but immediately realises that now she either has to go get another or go back to the Garden cafeteria. Hmph.

She hops up onto the fountain and starts looking around for someone she recognises from Garden, ready to pounce. A lady should be escorted back, right?

I'll be busy during break, so I won't be around as the head of the Disciplinary Committee. If you slagging zifts get into trouble, there's still others who're making sure you don't land yourselves in hot water 8/

If my twin, Damian Wayne, isn't around, then go ahead and contact
[the names of various NPC members who've been skulking around campus].

Also as a reminder: if you type weird, and someone ASKS you to type normally, be smart and do so. Else it's grounds for detention.

- Damian R.

EDIT: Actually, just contact Artemis Crock instead. She'll be acting as leader while I'm away.

[PM to Rapunzel]

So we're in Dollet now! I know I said I'd lead a field trip, but I'm gonna be away on some business pretty soon - so can I show you around by myself later?

I promise it'll be quick.

First off, Marco and I have returned from our blissful getaway. Souvenirs for those we care enough to give one to.

Second, I've been seeing a lot of posts with quite illegible typing. Honestly, we're all given courses in writing and such. Please make use of that or stay off the system. You're hurting our eyes, and obviously wasting the money Garden puts into your education. If you're new, then I'd suggest you brush up a bit and acclimate yourselves accordingly. There is the option to just use the video or audio function.

In conclusion stop embarrassing yourselves and Garden.


[PM] For Raidou

I can come by to pick our cats whenever it's convenient for you.

[PM For Raven

Marco will more than likely pick up Lark from you when he gets a chance.



[Grell can be found in an open, grassy area, having a picnic of sorts. A blanket on the ground, a laptop in her lap, and a basket with sandwiches she made herself inside. They're quite edible, which is a big step up. She's munching on one now, looking up at the sky.]

Just wanted to inform everyone the reason their laptops were confiscated was due to bugs being implanted in them.

Seeing as the school was trying to cover this up, I figured someone should inform you you were all potentially leaking sensitive information.

is it just me or are they keeping our stuff for longer than usual?? i've got my smartphone so i'm okay but i'm still pretty darn sure that a week is way too long to handle a "standard maintenance and repair" operation.

if a CS major knew why it takes so long, an explanation would be schway. :|

also a reminder: if i see you doing weird slag, i'm giving you detention. i don't know why people seem to forget this part, but we are a school for mercenaries-in-training. Seriously stop being zifts and just... i don't know, read comic books or something.

The Sky Pirates of Aselia is currently having a crossover with the Sea Pirates of Aqualin. And it's more than kinda schway. It's worth your time more than any dumb slag with alarm clocks. 8|||

[If anyone wants to find him at the computer terminals, Damian's still there longer than usual; he's also been lurking around the Computer Science classrooms to see if he can gain any more information.

Either way, he's a man on a mission, and that mission isn't exactly for noble intentions.]

[A) Hey look everyone, it's Crime Dog McGruff. If he was a bulldog and wore an eyepatch. And smoked cigars. Okay maybe not such a good role model for the kids. Still, he's undeniably a police dog. And gruff. Welcome back your new Criminal Justice, and International Law Instructor. Feel free to be perturbed by how he's a human-sized dog doing normal people things.

B) Alternately see him in the hallways catching a smoke between classes and yelling at you to get to your god damn classes already. Or you could snark back at him about smoking cigars on campus. Maybe his bark is worse than his bite. Maybe.

C) And then there's the third option which is just his BBS post.]

It's nice to see more diversity around here even if it means the Time Compression continues merrily on. Where are all you lot from anyway? What was the police force like there?

My name is Furor and I'll be one of your Instructors. Congratulations to the new SeeDs. And all that junk.

[Jack limps into the infirmary, half covered in mud. His wrists, just visible from under his coat sleeves, are red and raw. He's sort of cradling his left arm (from which a bit of blood is dribbling off).]

Hey, anyone here? A guy just tried to kill me.

[He looks around.]

[[He's also left a trail of muddy bootprints and blood drops out in the hallway, in case anyone wants to have followed that.]]

[Everyone around campus lately, fliers have gone up. What are they for? They're an advertisement for a pet combat demo since Rinoa promised Lea she'd give one before night classes started. It's a rather attractive poster and probably has a ton of puppies and kitties on it. False advertising? Probably not once you consider the pets owned by most of the people on Garden.]

[And today is the day for that demo! The fliers were around for a few days to give people notice about what's going on. So now Rinoa's getting all set up just inside the training center - with a little help from her furry assistants of course. That's right, this wouldn't be possible without help from Angelo and Julia! (They'll be getting a round of applause later naturally.)]

[For now people are more than welcome to come up and ask questions either: as she sets up, during the demo, or after the demo. Feel free to mark when the conversation takes place if you want. For some ideas on part of what will take place during this demo see this video here.]

[Grell is just walking around the Garden, enjoying the fine weather with her two feline companions, Polish, Bashful, and Lark, her pet chocobo. Yes, she is walking her cats. One of them has their fur dyed red. It's obviously a professional job.

The kittens look a bit miffed at having a harness on, but they frolic and play around with things around them. The chocobo is merely sitting in the sun, ignoring all else for the moment. Come to think of it...]

You three really aren't little anymore, are you~? [Grell crouches down in her new outfit, petting them affectionately. One of them encounters someone, mewing at them curiously.

Could that someone be you~?]

(ooc: Grell will be wearing this outfit from here on out. In all the same colors as her last outfit Until I get someone to color it in!

EDIT: OOPS I forgot Lark is a chocobo, not a kitten. A small chocobo.]
