What kind of challenges does Garden's training center offer precisely, anyways? Oh, nevermind, I'll just go find out myself.

[Jin still posted this, for some reason.]


[While many still found themselves flummoxed over the recent change in Balamb Garden's policy via its new commander Jin sidestepped the furor with a newcomer's ignorance, not having been here long enough to become attached to any status quo. The training center provides a unique respite from the politics of the day, the dense foliage and winding passages providing just the right kind of isolation the cadet often preferred.

He swiftly found he was not by himself, leaving a trail of beaten creatures in his path that'd be easy enough to follow. He currently stood in a clearing with a few of his latest victimsw, resheathing the Katana he naturally wielded with a clean motion. He had to admit-live training against monsters was one thing the NOL Academy in his world hadn't offered. He was grudgingly impressed.


Barely a sweat....is everything here this weak?

[He probably hasn't met the T-Rexaur yet.]

Hey Touma,
I hear you're in charge of Rapunzel's party preparations? I want in. (I know you know her from Infirmary stuff but I'm also her BFF so I'd really like to know what's going on in case I get to drag her away from a surprise or something similar).

When can I meet you? Does 7:30 PM work? I can meet you in your room or office or someplace private. I'd offer my room, but my roommate might be in and I don't want to kick her out.

- Cissie

[Action; Training Center & Quad]
[It's been a while since Cissie's been in the Training Center. If asked, she'd lie and say it was because of schoolwork and infirmary training keeping her busy... but when it boiled down to it, it was kind of painful to walk in there.

Just before going down to the Center, she stops by the Quad and glances around at the scenery (which includes that weird lollipop garden from Home Ec class) before she hesitates. It takes her a while to actually set foot inside, as she'd seen so many of her friends train there. She felt weird going in and not seeing her old friends hard at work. Compression really, really sucked sometimes.

She pulls out her bow and starts to shoot at her pre-made archery targets. As usual, they hit the bulls-eye every time... but she's not really looking for a challenge either, and it's kind of obvious.]

[Home Ec class this week is planting stuff in a garden in Garden. Thus, Pinkie has this sign made up as one enters the area, hanging from somewhere:]


[Meanwhile, she's sticking lollipops into the ground. Because she can.

Anyone is welcome to stop by and plant some lollipops, but not anything else unless you're in her class.]

[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.

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!]

[Out in the Quad on this particular morning, there's a small scaffold poking out of an open patch of grass. The grass was there yesterday. The scaffolding wasn't. Neither are likely to be the first thing a passerby would notice, though - that would probably be the rocket. You know, the one that just shot fifty feet straight up into the air.

It's not long before the little canister sputters out, drops, bounces off the metal frame below and rolls to a halt on the ground, some distance away from the guy who launched it. He looks less than impressed by its performance, although for a minute or two it's hard to tell in between all the violent coughing. Maybe a filter mask would work better than his jacket sleeve...

Anyway, all he can do for now is wait for the canister to cool down, and waiting isn't his favourite way to pass the time. He'd probably welcome a distraction. If the noise or the rocket itself happened to interrupt anybody's day, he's... slightly sorry... but what he doesn't know about can't weigh on his conscience, right?]

[ Danny is flying around looking down at the letter that he had received just a few moments ago. Okay so... by some work of some powerful sorceress he's been brought here to be in this military school as a cadet? It sounds sort of like one of those dreams that are really actually nightmares. Except you can't wake up from it. And the things about powers. Okay, maybe he should be flying around--


Okay where did this tree come from.

He collides right into the tree, falls down a few branches, and eventually hits the ground. On his face. Okay. If he wasn't half-ghost that could have reaaally hurt. Moreso than it did. ]

[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!]

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!

[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).

    Mother's back, dearies~!

    [And she tries to hug a passing young cadet, but it turns out to be a cadet who's met her, and so he runs as if she's just tried to stab him.

    She is currently scowling after him.]

    [B] - [She is in the cafeteria at lunchtime, nibbling at a biscuit. She's not sitting too close to anyone else--or they're not sitting close to her; it's hard to tell. She seems to be preoccupied with thumbing through her syllabus.]

    [Thanks to all the free time lately, Artemis has been feeling more than a little antsy. Which is why after a day or so to figure out the logistics Artemis has donned her hero uniform and is currently making use of the training center after curfew for a little exercise. ]

    [Standard target practice is child's play for someone with her training, so she's got targets scattered over the entire training center. This way the flora and fauna of the center can work as obstacles she has to work her way around. It's brilliant really even if it's not entirely as strenuous as she might have liked. There honestly aren't enough T-rexaur's to actually make it as dangerous as she'd like which probably says something about the young archer's state of mind.]

    [Anyone who happens to stumble upon the training center will probably notice the constant cowled hero in green making her way everywhere using the trees and fences to maneuver around all while displaying perfect archery skills. Other capes and other characters in general are more than welcome to stare/mock/whatever at Artemis at their own risk naturally. She is obviously armed after all.]

    If anyone is interested in assembling a small orchestra, please meet in the music room around 6pm. We need, at least five people, and any instrument is fine! I'll more than likely be conducting than playing, unless someone else wants to?

    The reason for this is for an upcoming wedding! Don't you want to make a special day even more special?


    [Sure enough, Gakupo is there, tuning a viola. A few other stringed instruments lay around his feet, already tuned. He's bored, and wants to get back to using any and all stringed instruments.

    He's also tuning his voice as well, which is...embarrassing.]

    Of course, she's walking around aimlessly, not even bothering to get used to her surroundings. But if she notices someone, she'll immediately make a beeline towards you with a very enthusiastic look on her face, asking (well, unless you're Mikuru, which instead she'll attempt to sneak from behind to grope you as a way of greeting!): ]

    Two days.

    A whole two days, mind you.

    This is a simply horrendous situation - a whole two days stuck in one spot? That's just ridiculous - practically unheard of! Well, okay, not totally unheard of, but very, very unlikely. But, with no TARDIS, and time being all screwed up, there wasn't really much else to do. How... boring.

    Still, he had to admit meeting a whole assortment of people from numerous different realities wasn't something that even a Time Lord got to do very often. He could do without the "military school" thing and the guns, but if this was where all the interesting people were being welcomed, he could handle that for the time being.

    Then he would go and fix it. Somehow. Without the TARDIS. No, really. He's brilliant and he can do it, he's sure of it!

    Mind you,

    [And yes, he's talking to himself.]

    [This was confusing, to say the least. One minute, she had reunited with her brother, only for Jeremy to attack Port Rosalia, and the next... she was here? After reading the letter, though, Yulie had relaxed slightly, as despite the situation, she was (hopefully) in good hands. After looking over the catalog, she also had a good idea what she wanted to do, as well.

    Still, she couldn't help but feel a little worried regardless, especially when it came to how everyone would fare without her. Trying to get a feel for her surroundings, Yulie can be found (tentatively) exploring Garden.]
