Hey Garden,

Is it weird to think about making a will for when you go back home? We're all twiddling our thumbs until Compression randomly takes us back - except that's the thing. It takes us without warning. So has anyone thought about what they'd do for the people they'd leave behind?

I know we won't be here forever, but it feels slagged dumb to know that our friends may not necessarily get a proper goodbye. Or our stuff. I've still got some of my old roommates' things, since no one else wanted them, though it feels kinda weird.

If you guys haven't planned one, is it because you think you won't be here long? Or for some other reason? I'm just curious, I guess.

[action]

[Sometime after he makes the BBS post, Day's back in his room, playing video games as usual. He's on break, so he's decided to start a playthrough of an old Batman-based video game.

After half an hour of playing, he irrationally throws the controller at the screen and glances over at Ahki's room. He's not sure if his twin's in at the moment, or if he's still at Obel Lake, but... if anyone can (unknowingly) make him feel better about his life and his choices, it's his twin. The game's still on, and he's not particularly sure he likes watching Batman die thanks to an ill-placed batarang, but video games - for once - have lost their appeal.]

Uh-oh.

[Today, the quad has a new resident.]

[This is not necessarily a good thing.]

[You can ask all sorts of questions: like how did it get here!? Or what does it want?! Or even why is it here in the first place?! And these are all perfectly good questions (with perfectly good answers, mind), but not ones you're going to get an answer just by asking.]

[Because whatever the answers might be, the fact remains that there is a very, very large red chocobo sitting contentedly in front of the quad's stage -- right in the middle of everything, in other words. At the moment, it has its head tucked back and its eyes shut -- it's napping.]

[Then again, who knows how sensitive its hearing is? (There's another good question, and this one might be answered quickly and directly if you care to ask...)]

[Option A:]

[It's Sunday night when Marco finally returns from the mission against pirates. He feels pretty good, it's always nice to be back out at sea doing something familiar that was absent for so long. Still he has a feeling his family that couldn't come might have had some massive explosions. They're all like Ace with a bottle of booze and some fireworks. It'd be nice just to make sure they're all in one piece. He will of course, be glad to see anyone however and probably give hugs to random CR. Affectionate tired-happy pirate get.]


[Option B:]

[Throughout the next week Marco has both made posters asking to vote for him for Homecoming King, and then doodled all over them. Feel free to catch him in the act, or to just find random posters of Marco with a top-hat, mustache, and monocle plastered all over them. MUCH MUCH later in the week, he'll also make chocolate cupcakes with blue frosting and sprinkles and hand them out with a little Whitebeard flag decoration stuck in. It's not a bribe. Obviously he just felt like it. Obviously.]

Hi.

I kind of got really sick again after the trip to Dollet, so I'm in the infirmary again... I don't know how long I'll be here for this time, but I'm hoping it won't be more than another week. Maybe by then, I'll be well enough to start doing things again!

So I guess until then, I won't be able to go to any of my classes, or uh, do much of anything else... But I do have this laptop, so I can still be on the BBS!

So, yeah. I hope I don't miss too much until then!

-Danny


((OOC: Characters are free to reply to this BBS post or even visit him in the infirmary should they be so motivated!))

[PM to Squall]

Hey Commander,
Are you free today or sometime this week? Headmaster told me that I should probably talk to you about something I've got planned for next month. It's got nothing to do with Disciplinary Committee stuff; actually, it's more along the lines of stuff from my homeworld.

I'll explain in detail whenever you've got time. It's one of those things that's easier in person.

- Damian Razem


[Since Damian's got very little to do this Quarter beyond taking age-appropriate classes, he's taken to causing small bits of mischief while he's out and about. Today's bit of mischief? He's checked out a few books from the library... and arranged them in a circular fashion like so in one of the classrooms on campus.

There's some from his own collection tossed in there, of course, but it's mostly Library books. Once he's done, he admires his handiwork before arranging another pattern. And another.

Boredom really does do strange things to people...]

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.

But.

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."

So.

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.

[Dawn's glad she has the opportunity to explore a whole new town! There's not too much to it, but it's still interesting. She'd pretty much expected every nook and cranny - even exploring a few shops here and there. She bought a pair of binoculars, too! It had started to get late when Dawn decided to rest on the Horizon Bridge, looking off into the distance with her binoculars, lying flat on her stomach with her legs twirling around. The sunset was especially beautiful when it set over the ocean, Dawn thought.

Meanwhile, her Luxray is a bit bored. He's busy trying to zap fish in the water with a thunderbolt. Dawn doesn't notice.]

[So whoever thought they were classy when they arrived at the Garden thought they were classy obviously hasn't arrived back on a dragon.

Actually, that probably scared the heck out of anyone who's never seen Redglare and her Lusus Pyralsprite. But she knows how to make an entrance as the large dragon flies her close enough to make a safe leap down onto level ground, staff in hand. The dragon soon disappears as she lands.]

It smells like the ocean now that we're near Fisherman's Horizon. It's kind of annoying really to smell all this fish. Hmph.

But I smell a lot of new things around here too, how delightful.

[He boots click against the ground as she makes her way around the Garden.

You'll probably catch her at the Front Gate[Morning], Quad[Afternoon], or the Library[Evening] throughout the day.]

[BBS]

Greetings students. I am Instructor Redglare. I will not tolerate any silly nicknames or anything that may potentially be impolite.

I suppose not all of you were here when I was around, but that is none of my concern. I will be instructing International Law and Criminal Justice as no one else is worthy of teaching such classes. I've spent most of my life to learn everything I know about these subjects. I take law very seriously and if you are enrolled in my classes, I will see to it that you treat them with the utmost respect that it deserves.

That being said, I take rules just as seriously and I will not hesitate to punish those who break them, so I better not catch any of you childish antics and rule breaking around here.

Make a disability jab at me and you'll be at the receiving end of my staff. Goody day.

[The camera switches on to a midshot of Mikuru, in civilian gear rather than cadet uniform or her battle waitress costume, clutching a small notepad with shaking hands. She looks kind of scared, too, but tries to perk up when she realizes the camera's recording.]

H... [She clears her throat and tries again.] Hello, everybody! [That smile's a bit better than before. Public speaking's scary, okay? Even on camera instead of in front of an audience.] I'm Mikuru, apprentice leader of the Garden Festival Committee, and I have a few announcements to make!

First, the winners of our recent date auction for the Centra orphanage: [She picks up another piece of paper and reads from it.]

#WINNING )

We raised almost four thousand gil for the Centra orphanage, so thank you very much for your support, everybody! We hope you enjoy your dates.

[Page flip!]

Also, a reminder about the Homecoming carnival and dance approaching! The carnival is on Friday, with food from the different worlds, games, and activities set up all around Garden.

[Mikuru flips the page, puts down the pad and holds up a map for a moment:]
Cut for THE MOST BEAUTEOUS MAP. )

[When she puts it down, she smiles, looking a little embarassed.] Don't worry if you missed that! We'll have the carnival map up on the directory, and we'll also hand out maps around the carnival.

We'd like to thank everyone who's volunteered to run or be part of a booth so far! It's not too late to volunteer; we'll still be holding signups in the cafeteria today and tomorrow. After classes tomorrow, we'll let you know when your shift will be!

[Page flip!]

If you can sing, dance, play an instrument, or do anything else special, the carnival will also include a talent quest in the quad! The most talented performers as judged by the art and music appreciation instructors, Bro Strider and Sharpay Evans, will perform at the homecoming dance!

[Mikuru flips the page over again.]

The dance is on Saturday night in the ballroom. There we'll be voting for the Homecoming Court, so think long and hard about who you want to be your Homecoming King, Queen, Prince, and Princess! Also, each club will be represented in the Homecoming Court by a Beau and a Sweetheart, that is, one boy and one girl, so it's up to the members of all active clubs to decide amongst yourselves!

[A new page.]

The GFC will be meeting at 7PM for the next two nights to set up booths, decorations, props, and much more. It's a very busy time of year!

[Mikuru flips the page and looks surprised at it before looking back up to the camera with a smile.]

That's all for today! I hope to see you all at Homecoming!

[She leans forward to turn the camera off.]

(OOC: Hey GFC kids! Whether you play out helping the GFC or handwave it is totally up to you. ♥ Also, a note for talent quest participants: IC signups will be on the day but for ease of MC-ing, we're having an OOC signup thread here.)

Uh, Kitten? Aren't turnips a little purple for you?? Is this supposed to be a coded message? Something about red and blue conjoining?

Does anyone here speak vegetable language? Is it like flower language or something? Does it mean she's pregnant?

I assume they're decorations... not meant to be eaten... right?

Does anyone else have turnips in their rooms? Is it like some weird homecoming tradition here I don't know about?

And uh... I guess if it's just me and Tavros, then never mind all that. What's everyone's plans for Homecoming and stuff?


[ooc: Espio "freed" turnips and stashed them all in Marco & Tavros' room. Marco thinks they're from Grell and thus thinks it's a special code. He's very confused. SOMEONE troll him with this. He needs the karmic payback.]

[It doesn't matter where you are in the garden; if you're in a public area, you now see what appears to be a giant red and white robot casually walking around, like it's totally normal for giant robots to be wandering the building.  This is Gavril, both reacquainting himself with the building as well as testing out parts of his armor's computers.  He had been messing with it before his arrival, and he had to make sure everything was in proper order.  Don't worry, nothing appears to be malfunctioning.

Anyone want to mess with the robot?]

Hello again comrades!  So much change appears to have happen since I leave.  So much new faces!  I am Gavril Ivanovich, and I am new Instructor Engineering.  What is to be spoken for me?  Back home I was on new Justice League International.  Was big superhero group for superhero around world.  Superhero name is Rocket Red.  Rocket Red is also name of super power unit in Russia.  I was Captain of Rocket Red brigade but I leave because we not agree ear and ear.

I have talk too much!  Instead I wish to learn about new people!  Is anyone in the engineering on Tuesday or Thursday?  Do not be shy, talk to Gavril!

[As one is passing through classes today, one may hear something unusual in the air. As one's ears adjust, they may find it to be a very high pitched staccato laugh. It's resonance is pretty good, and seems show no indication of ceasing. Were one to explore the source of this acoustic anomaly, they would find that the sound gets louder as they enter into the lobby, and louder still the closer they got to the first floor lobby. The voice changes now, shifting to a hearty hahahaha to hehehe and even an abrupt LOL for good measure.

At the end of this particular rabbit hole is a young troll girl standing next to the directory, which has subsequently been smeared by something white and viscous--saliva, perhaps? The troll girl seems to find something HIGHLY AMUSING, but is staring off into blank space.

Talk about a weirdo.]
