I've been kiiiiind of thinking lately- I wanna take on another apprentice! Totori isn't here, so it hasn't been as much fun without her.

Soooo... I'm looking for another apprentice! To teach alchemy to! But I won't just teach anyone- you have to be cute... and you have to be interested in alchemy, too, but more importantly, you have to be cute!

If you're interested, just come see me in the Quad, okay ☆?

[ Cloud had decided to get up early and spend a few hours with his blades, making sure that they were in shape after the whole 'sucked into another world' thing. Once cleaned, sharpened, and polished he took the Fusion Swords outside of the Garden for practice. Sure he could have gone to the Training Center, but he had found the ceiling was just a little too close for comfort, especially when he jumped. He needed space and he needed to work off all the tension of ended up in this strange place, where even the air tasted different than what he knew.

So there he was in the field, the First Ken in hand while the five other swords formed a circle around him, going through the very simple step-slash-block-return moves of a basic kata. The air was fresh and cool, feeling good against his bare arms, and he could taste the nearby sea when the wind blew off of it. He closed his eyes, letting his feet and arms carry him around the circle.

So absorbed in his practice, he really wouldn't notice anything around him, even if it was a Sephiroth appearing in a pink apron talking about peace and harmony. ]

[Morning finds Edge wandering about Garden. Not looking lost, precisely, but looking as if he lost something and doesn't even know what it is.]

[Every so often he stops to peer at some object. A clock, a railing, a sign, something floating in the lobby's water. After a moment he frowns, shakes his heads, and moves on.]

[ Anyone walking into the training center would hear a large crash, followed by repeated swears in multiple languages. Closer inspection of the crashes would find you encountering a highly pissed off Erik Lehnsherr, brows furrowed in a combination of both anger and confusion as his attempts to ward off what appears to be a giant dinosaur aiming for him are failing successively. There are objects of metal flying around here and there, but despite Erik's constant focus, they're not any efficient against the T-Rexaur.

He neatly runs off, evading the dinosaur if only for a brief moment, and takes a respite behind a column, frustrated. ]


Damnit, where's Charles when you need him for this?

[ OOC: As part of the superpowers event, Erik has lost his metal manipulation! Feel free to jump in, save him, mock him, whatever! ]

[Morning| Hotel Room]

[If you happen to be in the hotel hallways, you might have heard a pretty terrible shriek that morning.

You see, as of late, Redglare seems to be finding it difficult to do certain things. Namely, smell and taste. She can still do those, but it's like her entire life devoted to getting around has slowly been disappearing. Everything smelled so normal. Colors didn't taste much like they did before. She had, of course, thoroughly tested this by licking the red cans she collected. They just tasted like...well cans. The red on them did nothing to change that.

In return, she seemed to have progressively acquired the ability to see. Of course that freaked her out a bit. Seriously, one does not suddenly have the ability to see again.

But if you happen to come into her room after her shriek, you might be surprised to see that the legislacerator gone instructor is just staring at her arm. As though this is the most fascinating thing she has ever seen.

Actually, considering she's been blind, this might be true.]

Such a peculiar thing vision is! [What she doesn't realize is that X-ray vision isn't standard.]

[Afternoon| Cafeteria]

[She's just staring at her food. This is weird for her. She's never had a huge problem figuring out what to eat. If they generally were a nice color, it would taste good. But now...]

I do not understand how trivial human food can get. [That is a fruit salad Redglare.]

[[OOC: For the Superpowers event, Redglare lost her smelling/tasting text/colors and gained X-ray vision, which also gave her...normal vision. Needless to say, SHE IS GOING TO ABUSE AND ENJOY THIS SKILL.]]

[There seems to be a festive atmosphere all throughout Garden. Why? Because it's the Homecoming Carnival! The Garden Festival Committee has been hard at work all morning and when 1300 hours strikes, it's finally open for everyone to enjoy.

There's a map on the Directory which shows where everything is located:

MAP )

Have fun, Garden!]


[OOC: As noted, this has been backdated to last Friday. So as not to exclude new characters who came in after, though, it can be assumed that their arrivals were backdated so they can participate.

PLEASE DO NOT POST UNTIL WE HAVE FINISHED PUTTING UP THE SUBCOMMENTS. Thank you! We're done posting the subcomments, you can go ahead and jump in!

EDIT: Also, we forgot to mention: Players can assume that characters take different shifts which allow for everyone to enjoy other parts of the carnival as well instead of being stuck manning a booth the whole night. For Dunk Tank and Kissing Booth, it's best to leave your character's name in the subject of their comment to start off their thread to indicate their shift. Thank you!

EDIT 2: FORGIVE US! We forgot to mention that there is a price for some of the attractions at the carnival. This is a fundraiser where the money can to go whatever the Garden Festival Committee sees fit; we'll let the players and their characters decide on that front. Here's how the pricing goes:

KISS: 2 gil each
FERRIS WHEEL/ BUMPER CAR/ CAROUSEL: 5 gil per person
CARNIVAL GAME: 1 gil per game
FACE PAINTING: 2 gil per person
FOOD STALLS: We'll leave this up to characters to decide.
DUNK TANK: 5 gil for 3 balls, 10 gil for 10 balls
FORTUNE TELLING: 3 gil per reading

We hope this clarifies things!

Option A: Lobby

[Toph is leaning against the directory with her arms crossed, unamused. The letter and course catalog are by her feet, untouched.

She's blind, Cid. Why the hell did you give her stuff to read? She's just going to stand here and people 'watch' for a while. Passerbys are free to notice her bare feet or blank stare. If you talk to her, she won't look at you.]


Option B: Quad

[Later, after lunch, Toph is sitting against a convenient wall, apparently doing nothing. People walking by her, however, have a tendency to trip and glance back at the ground behind them, swearing there was a dip there only to find that the ground is just as flat as it's always been.

She's bored and making people look like idiots is entertaining.]

[See Haruhi?

This is Haruhi memorising the Garden. Memorising the Garden and everyone in it. By walking around like she owns the place. Because she totally does, now.

She has also taken the liberty of sticking A4 printouts to pretty much every available surface. Walls, windows, boards, benches, even the directory. All of them contain the exact same image:



There's not even anything to explain what this image even means.

[Shadow is walking around Garden, trying to lose track of the kittens that are constantly following him at his feet. They were Maria's, and with her gone, he doesn't want to keep them. At all. The kittens feel otherwise.

So much scowling going on.

The kittens sometimes get distracted and trip over their own paws, but do a damn good job of keeping up.]

[Just before noon, Equius made his way to the cafeteria, a stack of papers in one hand, a rolled up poster and tape in the other. He finds an empty spot by the door, sets down his things, then unrolls the poster, smoothing it out over the table. Once it's properly flattened out, he tapes it to the wall, revealing a rather unflattering picture of one Tavros Nitram.]

[ Well, a girl who kind of looks like Jade Harley was about to go storming to who knows where on this godforsaken campus. She's kind of mad; what kind of place picks you up when you're busy mourning your dead family members? Jeez, can't you at least wait a week or so?

(Jade knew she didn't have a week left to live at home. She tried not to think about this.)

But on her way to rage around the campus, she had smelled food. Wow, that was amazing. Did people actually make things that weren't microwaved? She wandered inside of the building and sat down, staring at the food. She was a little hungry; it wasn't often that she got a meal inside the Medium, and it had been a long time since anything other than soda and ramen.

Soda. Did this place have any?

People can find her sitting there. She's been there all day, and has no intention of going anywhere any time soon. Classes? What are classes? Staring at food > following a schedule. ]

[Old habits never die hard. Despite the fact that it's been years since he spent hours poring over book in the library, trying to learn every bit of information he could possibly need to know for that upcoming exam, the feeling naturally returns. It's a comfort to him, being able to adjust to his old learning habits just like that. Granted, Percy's never actually taught a class, but he's confident in his experience - his old Professors have been more than adept at indicating behaviors and mannerisms expected from his students.


With two classes to teach (relatively interesting ones too, he supposes), Percy's scrambling away, trying to adjust to a lesson plan that hopefully will touch upon all the necessary information and engage students in taking a more political approach instead of well... an aggressive one. So Percy's in the library, browsing through the history section for perfect examples to lead the class.]


Another country destroyed by intense warfare. How am I supposed to promote a peaceful solution when there's nothing but constant aggression?

Anyone heading into town? I know classes just started, but I was wondering if someone could grab something for me next time they head into town. (Don't worry, I've got the money, I just need someone to run the actual errand for me.)

I'm in room B203, so let me know if you can help.

Thanks! :)

- Cissie


[Ever since the home event, Cissie's become a total recluse. Only leaving her room for meals - and even then, it wasn't voluntary half of the time - and the occasional "study session," room B203 had become a total mess in the meantime. Or at least, Cissie's portion of the area had been.

Case in point? There seems to be a dreary green stench coming from the room and making its presence known on the first floor. Thanks to the door being open, it's obvious that the stench is coming from there - and there alone.

... Getting to B203 might be an adventure in itself, if the weird green color from that door's any indication.]

[Huh. One second in Garden, and the next second, back on his boat, sailing towards a very familiar looking island. On the edge of the boat sits a young Rito girl, looking somewhat anxious.

The King of Red Lions isn't exactly the largest boat in the world, though - he's kinda tiny, really. With so little space, it'll be a tricky transition for the others from Garden as Link slooowly clicks on to the fact they're heading towards the Earth Temple. Again.

Aw man, Redeads. Fun.

"We're under attac-"

[The cry that came up from the guards became a scream as a rush of fire smashed against the exterior walls of Eblan, rocking the castle on its foundation. Upstairs, the Prince awoke suddenly, leaping to his feet in a flurry of sheets and pillows.]

No. This can't be --

Not again!
[identity profile] ronnae.livejournal.com
[Ronnae couldn't believe it, and yet here she was. The place was huge, and so vastly different than what she was accustomed to. The only place that even came close was Dalaran. She'd been informed, and helped through sorting things out. Not only that, they had been incredibly welcoming even when they shouldn't be. She got accepted and enrolled in their academy, giving her a place to live. But what now?]

What should I do...?

[She wondered into the large open area, looking down as she tried not drawing attention. She really wished she had stayed inside her assigned room now that she thought about it... How was she not going to attract attention here! She stopped in her tracks, fidgeting nervously. Maybe it was better if she hurried back to her room, after all she had much to think about! And her classes, yeah! She had to ummm make sure she knew the ins and outs of the classes so she knew just what to pick. That might take her days! Weeks even! Maybe no one would notice her. She turned, slowly trying to leave the area.]

[Surveys the Quad in concentration, waiting for Edge. Their competition is about to get under way, and victory could already be felt within him. Allowing Edge to claim the title he was born with would be unacceptable.

He's also ignoring all the stares. Since that new newsletter came out, he's been on his haunches over people still treating all those from other worlds as third class citizens. He's far too used to that, but not everyone else is as deserving.]


Dr. Kadowaki has the right idea.
[identity profile] icesanguinewolf.livejournal.com
[Those of you walking around the Quad today get to see a.... rather interesting sight.

Namely, a large dragon is currently curled up, either relaxing or dozing -- it's pretty hard to tell.

Kurt had admittedly missed this form quite a bit. It felt as natural and normal now as his original elven form, and even if the unfortunate "death" part carried over, it was still a relief to feel the sensation of having wings again, even if he wasn't doing much more than twitch or flick them.

He makes a content noise, shifting his position and stretching his wings a moment before settling back down.]

[Mikuru and her partner's chicobo has escaped. Our little battle waitress was taking the thing for a walk around campus, she looked at something else for ten seconds and it was gone.

[It runs all over Garden, wreaking havoc and attempting to eat loose paper and foliage. Mikuru is always a few steps behind.]

Have you seen a chicobo?!

[One may or may not notice a dark figure standing under a tree, watching other mill about to their classes. The population of cadets have nearly doubled, and the percentage of SeeD and instructors has also grown at a rate he hasn't seen in a while. Shadow's reappearance will certainly cause a stir.

Not like he cared.

With his mission over, he now has far too much time on his hands, so he is currently looking over the Balamb Newsletter.]


It's gotten a lot better.
