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

The directory has been reprogrammed slightly:
It also has a piece of paper stuck underneath:
Kissing booth: Turn around
Food booths: Around 1F main circle
Triple Triad: 2F bridge
Carnival games: Front gate area
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: Road to Balamb

Each stall/booth has free, more elaborate maps:
Big image! )

Have fun, Garden!]

Each attraction will have its own thread. We've listed the people running shifts in the top comments as a reminder to those who signed up; feel free to make your character a thread for their shift even if you missed OOC signups.

Characters have 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 the dunk tank, kissing booth, food booths, and talent quest it's best to leave your character's name in the subject of their comment to start off their thread indicating their shift/time onstage.

Proceeds will be going towards building and furnishing a student lounge for fun stuff, so most attractions cost money:
Kissing booth: 2 gil per kiss
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: 5 gil per person
Carnival games (throwing/shooting X at Y, water gun race, whack a mole, skee ball, Ring the Bell, etc): 1 gil per game
Face painting: 2 gil per person
Food stalls: Snow cones 3 gil, cotton candy 3 gil, and funnel cake 5 gil; "food from your home world" up to individual characters
Dunk tank: 5 gil for 3 balls, 10 gil for 10 balls
Fortune telling: 3 gil per reading
Marriage booth: 5 gil a couple
Balloon animals: 3 gil an animal
Wandering entertainers: Donations welcome
Judgmental Claire stare: 5 gil

[1800 hours Friday evening finds the Commander waiting patiently at-ease in the Garden Garage. Written in the tense lines of her jaw and neck is the quiet anger that she otherwise keeps hidden behind calm professionalism.]

[She believes, though she won't admit openly, that Marco purposely selected a cadet of all people to join this dangerous, top-tier, ordinarily-Zabala-would-do-this-alone mission simply because she had not directly and explicitly specified that the mission party should be entirely SeeDs.]

[But as much as she's irritated at Marco, she's irritated at herself in turn. She'd know that the SeeD would test her. In this case, they'd outwitted her. So she would play the cards as they'd been dealt.]

[...For that matter, she also didn't expect either of them to be quite on time for the departure, but she'd enjoy being surprised.]

Actually, I've just thought.

[Yes, the Doctor is just going to make a post as though he was already half way through a conversation.]

You off-world lot aren't exactly doing a very good job here, are you?

Look at you, all special and powerful and even magical, some of you, and what's Garden got to show for it? Not a whole lot! This time compression business might like to try to attract all the weird people, but you're all rather insistent on being this world's standard of normal. Which, you know, isn't actually all that normal.


Actually, that's another one.

Why do your special, off-worldy, other universe completely different laws of physics powers still even work here, because that shouldn't happen. If it's impossible here, it should really stay impossible here, unless NO! Ignore everything I just said! We already know that time and space is all squished and useless! Let's not get on the subject of realities slipping in and out of each other. Just don't be surprised if you go home and suddenly there's GFs.

What I was trying to say is that you lot need to raise awareness, and what I want to know is about your powers, and more importantly, how and why they work where you're from. Because it can't be a "they just do."


You know.

Just type stuff in.

OH! And if you don't want to talk about your special what-have-yous because of the xenophobia business, just talk about someone else's.

[Disjointed rambling is now over! Anyone who didn't get incredibly annoyed/confused/headachey, answer! Anyone who did, complain!]

D --> Oh
D --> It seems the Time Compression has chosen to once again draw me here
D --> In a sense I suppose it is just as well, given that I had not yet completed my education
D --> But I would have still preferred to be returned to my own universe
D --> In any event I suppose I may as well make the most of it
D --> By any chance are there other Trolls sharing in my misery at this point on the timeline
D --> Or am I still doomed to a life surrounded by nothing but f001ish red-b100ded mammalian climbbeasts

[The GFC, the Disciplinary Committee, and Fight Club have teamed up to bring Balamb Garden an unforgettable experience with the weekend-long paint balloon tournament! Prior to the tournament, various sponsorships are given tables to organize and plot for their dominance over the other teams.

During the tournament, most parts of the school is fair game! (Though Headmaster has politely requested that all students refrain from the usual restricted parts of the school). Feel free to hit your opponents, though don't be surprised if they strike back! There are a few stations that are designated paint-free zones: the GFC, DiscComm, and Fight Club areas (as the Fight Club's hosting seminars, the DiscComm is monitoring students for suspicious activity, and the GFC's selling balloons and food) as well as the gymnasium and pool, but the rest of Garden is fair-game.

All students, SeeD, and staff members are given ten paint-filled balloons to start. The GFC will be selling extra balloons for 2 gil a piece, while craftier people may find a way to circumvent their limits.

Happy Holi! Fight, win, and eat lots of yummy spring-themed goods!]

[ooc: We will not be monitoring balloon usage, so feel free to go over the limit! We just politely request that you refrain from using a godlike amount unless it would be IC for your character. Enjoy Holi, everyone!]

I don't know who you are, or what you think you're pulling. This letter you gave me? Bullshit.

I want some real answers and I want them now. Start talking or I'll start bashing heads.


[Stomping around the lobby is a woman who looks extremely pissed off. The letter everyone receives when they arrive is crumpled up in her fist, a fist that is being waved in the faces of various strangers as she threatens them. Feel free to approach her and get yelled at.]

Option 1.

Hey, does anyone have any clothes they don't want anymore? The charity I've been volunteering at is running really low on their clothing inventory and I said I'd ask around. They accept all sizes, so long as it's new or gently used. Gently used basically means no stains, rips or tears, etc. It's fine if it had a small tear that you patched up. Just... nothing gross like used underwear, okay guys?

I'll be collecting the donations in my room, B105. Thanks in advance for the help!

- Kate Bishop

P.S. If anyone knows of any good places to get inexpensive clothing I can pick some things up at too, that would be awesome. Thanks again.

Option 2.
[Kate's sitting in the common area of her dorm, doing homework. The door is wide open. Got any clothes for her? Even if you don't, feel free to take advantage of the open door.]

[Kirby definitely has no idea where he is or how he got here. However, the fact that he is in an unfamiliar location doesn't really bother him. What really is making him upset is that his strawberry shortcake is no longer in front of him. That scrumptious little food of sugary goodness... it always goes missing like this.

So, Kirby is in the lobby right now, searching for his cake because that's the most important thing. Clearly. He's also holding the letter that all people receive upon their arrival, but since he can't read, Kirby is just lugging it around. After wandering around a bit, he may walk up to you and ask one simple question.]

Have you seen my cake? The flavor is strawberry and it's really good!

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.]

[Vriska had very special ways of dealing with "stress". During her time here she slowly learned to start changing her ways of dealing with "stress", but it was and continues to be an uphill battle that she has constantly doubted being worth the effort at all. Yet she knew this wasn't Alternia and outwardly killing someone to relieve anger with minimal consequences here was preposterous. She was outnumbered here anyways.

But she found ways to deal with things her way and they helped to an extent.

The mutilated T-Rex before her was proof of that. She stood in front of its head, breathing heavily and drenched in its blood with the broken sword handle still in her grasp. Some of her own cerulean blue blood mixed in with the red of the dinosaur's on her person, but if any of her own wounds hindered her she didn't show it.]

[There is a unicorn trotting around the Garden.

Probably not one of the more common sights in this place, really, but there she is, on her way to the library, talking to herself the entire time. Hey, she's just got herself a new job, in a new world with a fashion sense she's not in the right place to properly observe, and she needs to research.

I simply must see what this... this "world's" fashion history looks like. Would they keep books on such things in a school library? Or will the school's more brutish subject matter dominate?

If that is the case, I will just have to request new books!

Well, I finally managed to finish painting the dorm room. I think it looks a look better now, it was just so....plain before. I'll definitely be sure to paint over it later if Eugene and I change rooms, but I don't think it should be a problem.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone was interested in setting up a group activity? I know I had a lot of hobbies back home. I could paint, or sew, teach people how to make candles, play chess, chart stars, play guitar, paper mache, pottery....all sorts really. As long as I have access to the materials for things, at least. I thought it would be a neat way for people to make new friends and learn some new skills? Especially the newer arrivals who might not know anyone here really.

Oh. One last thing! Lea, Merlin, I don't know if you have met Eugene yet but if you haven't, I'd like to introduce you at some point.

[ It's almost too much for her to take. Gwen has been home for such a short time, hasn't even fully settled, and now she isn't quite sure where she is. Morgana had, understandably, given her a bit of time off despite her wanting to find a distraction. Being a captive and having to parade around as the ward of Uther Pendragon was difficult enough without all that followed... So she thought when she woke up the next morning she'd be safe and sound in Camelot and back to her usual day-to-day.

She was almost in a panic before the instructor found her and tried to help. A trip to the Headmaster's office and an acceptance letter later she still didn't quite understand what was going on. She just nodded politely, took her materials and was sent out of her own in the big Garden.

The whole place–Balamb they told her it's called–is a bit off-putting for Guinevere. It's smooth and shiny for lack of a better description, and so unlike Camelot and every other stone and wood-built village she's been in. Her nearly fruitless hunt around the center of the Garden just brought her back to the Lobby steps where her search began. Must have passed it, she thought a bit downtrodden, though she can't blame herself for being distracted given the circumstances. It's time she asked for help.

She works up the nerve to walk up to any passer-by who will listen with a simple question: ]

Umm, sorry to be a bother but could you point me to the [ She pauses a moment to make sure she's remembering it right- ] Dormitory?

( ooc note • feel free to bump into her wherever & whenever in the lobby area. she looks very lost and needs all the help she can get! )
