[You know you missed those three girls. At various points throughout the school (eg. the cafeteria, the quad, hallways) they can be seen putting up posters and banners, as usual not even trying to be discreet with their commentary.]

Homecoming is a travesty. I can't believe we didn't get nominated!

You would have made a great Homecoming Queen - and I would have been a better Princess than any of those off-worlders!

I know! Oh, honey, [she directs this at the last girl, who's been hiding a bit of a smile] I feel so sorry for you, having to work with one of them as the GFC leader.

[Looks like someone wasn't expecting that, but she recovers quickly.] What? Oh, yeah. It's awful! And now she's nominated for Princess...

At least she's human! Two of those King and Queen nominations - ugh!

I really can't believe there's only two of our people nominated for the entire Court.

And they're off-worlder lovers at that - but they're the best we've got!

How unexpected, to be nominated for something like this. I would just like to start out by saying that I absolutely appreciate the nominations I received on the homecoming ballot and respect the fact that those of you who did nominate me felt that I deserved to at least be in the running.

As for my opponents, I wish them all the best in their campaigns and that we will have a clean and fair campaign against one another. I will pull no punches and campaign as I would for any other position, without the use of any kind of mud slinging or name smearing, I feel that low blows and not something that I feel comfortable with by any means.

On that note, as well, I would absolutely adore if anyone would continue to hold support for me in the competition of Homecoming Queen. I do respect the way the Garden runs and would love to be able to at least represent it in some way, shape, or form, even if it's only in title. I would also like it to be noted that I have numerous centuries of experience being a public figure, having been bestowed the title of Princess in Equestria at a young age. While I may still be young myself, I have learned through hard work and trial and error to know how one is to act in such situations.

Thus I leave you with this, friends and colleagues, if you vote for me, I promise to uphold a demeanor and responsibility worthy of the title.

Please disregard any posters you see bearing my name and accompanied by the words 'Happy Birthday'. Thank you.



[Gakupo is using a stick to reach a very high poster that simply said 'Happy Birthday, Gakupo!' in thick purple letters. Whoever put it that high (at least three feet above him) has too much time on their hands.]

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.

[Raven has been crafting again, and this time she's made enough to share. Or, rather, sell.

Today, she's brought a small table to the Quad, and placed her projects all over it. There's two knitted hats, because the middle of summer is the perfect time to be selling woolen accessories, but it's mostly jewellery. Most of them are pendants, but there's a couple of rings, earrings and bracelets as well. Each has a little label on them stating the price, which could be anything from 500 gil to 5000.

However, Raven's not always been the best of salespeople, even if that is her job at home. She stands there, silently, all wrapped up in her heavy coat and scarf regardless of the warm weather, watching her fellow cadets. Nobody even gets as much as a smile from her - if anything, she seems to be frowning.

[After a brief vacation, several dozen drinks and flight home later, (don't drink and fly, Marco just regenerates kiddies) Marco is finally back at the Garden, following his wife's orders. Who knew being married meant he wouldn't be the captain anymore? Then again, was he ever really? ]

So I guess I'm running for Homecoming King. Or something.

Go team blue.

On an unrelated note, what is everyone's favorite book from home and have you found a copy here? I just found Moby Dick so I can't wait to see if it's the same as my Pops' favorite version.

- Marco

[Yup. Nearly a week of working on it in his head and that's all he's got. Oh well. Feel free to spot him outside sporting glasses and reading leisure novels and this world's version of Moby Dick. He needs to take another SeeD job and soon. Later that night he'll be reading... inside the Training Center. It doesn't really seem like a good place to do some recreational reading, and isn't that likely to get the library books dirty? Feel free to ask what that's about.]

[Sharpay is on a mission. Not an official SeeD mission, but one much nearer and dearer to her heart.


[A hot pink tote bag full of plays and her laptop on her arm, she marches to Princess Luna's office and knocks on the door. THEY HAVE A PRODUCTION TO PLAN.

[When this little meeting is done, she retreats to her room and busts out her wallet and a spreadsheet, shuffling receipts for a while before posting on the BBS.]

Two questions, Garden: What do you spend your allowance/salary on?

And if you wanted to save up for something big, what would you cut back on?

[Unsigned? Oh, yes. She's trying to be anonymous, or as anonymous as you can be with your ID number still showing (rendering a change in typing style a bit useless). At least not too many people would really know her number off by heart.]
rebellingheart: ([Happy] Well here's what I think of you!)
[personal profile] rebellingheart

[Some time after a certain thread, pictures of a certain purple haired SeeD start showing up all over Garden. They're in a myriad of different poses, but the style is all the same and it's obvious someone's put far, far too much time into this little prank.]

[Feel free to catch her in the act of hanging one of these glorious pieces of art?]


[Later, on the message board, there's this simple message.]

Who's taking it too seriously now, hmm?

[Rinoa, you are beyond ridiculous sometimes.]

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.]

[The video feed shows a young man about nineteen wearing a uniform and sitting in the library thoughful, and a bit unsure of himself.]

Excuse me. I'm new here, and I was wondering if someone could explain to me about para-magic? I have a couple classes about this topic. Where I come from, such things don't exist except in stories as far as I know so any information about this topic would be helpful. I'm Chris.


Later on, Chris is sitting on a bench somewhere in the lobby section. He looks a little worried about something but does his best not show iot on his face.

[Gakupo is hanging up this picture all over Garden, because HE WILL FIND THOSE TWO!! They need to take responsibility for their actions! The poster also reads:

WANTED FOR DAMAGING SCHOOL PROPERTY.If anyone knows who they are, please contact the head of the Disciplinary Committee.

He's very determined, and a terrible drawer.]


I've hung up a few signs. My apologies for the poor quality.

haha_steelguard: (bike!)
[personal profile] haha_steelguard
Hey cadets and SeeDs alike -- anyone out there familiar with technology a bit more advanced than what we normally see? I've got a bike from back home here that might need some preventative maintenance soon.


[If you're curious what he's talking about, well, if you're outside you might have a chance to see it later that evening. Having refrained from using it while Garden was in Dollet, Snow's making up for lost time on his hoverbike a bit more lately.]

[...Truth is, it reminds him of home, and of good things. Sort of like a promise, or a vow.]

[So as the sun heads for the horizon, the hoverbike in turn descends from the sky, with the tall Instructor mounted on it and a distant look on his face as he brings it to a halt not far from the entrance to the garage.]

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.]

I hope everyone's enjoying break so far. I know I'm really looking forward to some relaxing before classes start. Being a full time teacher sounds like it'll be tough, but I'll give it my best shot!

I want to thank everyone who showed up to my night classes, you were a big help in figuring out just what worked and what didn't.


[Normally Rinoa doesn't do her own laundry, but the npc who she normally pays is on vacation with family for the next few weeks. Since dirty laundry doesn't wash itself, that means she'll have to do it.]

[She's never done laundry before in her life and it shows. After dumping in half a box of laundry detergent and stuffing far too many pieces of clothing into the machine, she closes the lid before pushing the button to turn it on.]

[It's not even five minutes later that the laundry room is absolutely covered in bubbles and more bubbles. There are enough bubbles that they've spilled out into the hallway even. Don't trip on the soap residue!]

I don't think that's what's supposed to happen.

[However she's not entirely sure how to turn it off, or even if she can make it over to the machine to do so. So many bubbles everywhere! Maybe she'll just wait for a while and spend some time popping bubbles first. Come help fix the problem, pop some bubbles, or just mock her for being a failure?

[Wearing her mother's dress to the wedding brought up a lot of old memories that Rinoa's long thought she'd forgotten. They're bittersweet naturally as all memories of her mother tend to be, but at the same time they seem to give her a little peace. A vast improvement on how moody she's been lately, though Squall might have had a little to do with that, possibly.]

[Anyone looking for Rinoa today or just wandering around Garden might hear a few strains of piano music coming from the music room. At first it's just a few quiet notes, but then after a moment it turns into a full song that might be familiar to some. It's easy to hear too, since she managed to leave the door open. Come bother her or just stop to listen for a moment? It's about time she stopped hiding the fact that she's musically inclined from people after all.]

[Squall hadn't known what to expect after defeating Ultimecia, but suddenly standing in the Garden library had been furthest from his mind. He read the letter that was lying on the desk in front of him, but scowling at it wasn't going to help things make more sense, so he's now walking briskly through the hallway, heading for the Headmaster's office, looking for any signs of his comrades -- no, friends -- along the way.]

[After his encounter with Vegeta, Trunks went to the nearest terminal and worked out a brief message.]

I'm sure most of you have noticed the influx of new people by now. It doesn't seem normal, even for around here. Is it just time compression messing with things again?

Bulla...Rinoa too, probably. There's something I need to talk to you about.

[For the regular denizens of Balamb Garden, it's an ordinary day...until more off-worlders start showing up, for only a few hours at a time. Unsure what to make of these more temporary visitors, the Garden faculty is holding off on registering them as cadets or offering them jobs.

[Maybe someone you know might turn up?]

Mod note, to reiterate:
  • 4th wall characters can only be seen at certain hours of the day. They may appear for two hours a day, or four... or seen only in the early morning... the time doesn't matter to us, but they're not permanently here. They may return to Garden again through the rest of the month, but they're not around 24/7.
  • Like apped characters, 4th wall characters can't be ridiculously-sized. Transformers, Gundams, and similar concepts/characters will become human-sized (and in the case of mechas, not allowed altogether.)
  • Players (like you and me) are not allowed to visit Garden. We're breaking the 4th wall, not destroying it altogether!
  • Apart from this post, 4th wall characters are free to reply to open posts in [community profile] witchesreign or open logs in [community profile] concoursec. Apped players have the option of closing their posts to in-game characters only.
  • All BBS posts are locked to in-game characters only. 4th wall characters do not have access to any sort of logged in posts unless they hijack someone else's log-in---and in those cases, we need to know this beforehand.

    For those unfamiliar with the setting, here is more info on Balamb Garden's facilities and layout. Additionally, some of the NPCs around and some player characters may be wearing Balamb Garden's cadet or SeeD uniform.

    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask on the OOC post or through the mod channels ([personal profile] wrmods or [plurk.com profile] witchesreign).

    [Right now she's sitting in the cafeteria during her lunch break with a bowl of fruit sitting in front of her, feeling just a little homesick. After adjusting the jacket of her uniform for the hundredth time, Yuna returns to pushing around bits of fruit with her fork.]
