For those who may not be aware, today is the birthday of our very own Acelet. If you should pass him, wish him well, give him booze or give him meat. He'll love any of it.

To that end, we're going to have a little dinner party tonight in his honor so the more the merrier. Possible dancing, definite fits of narcolepsy and maybe some limbo here and there. Who knows?

Come and join the fun!

It's that time of year again. What time of year, you ask? The time of year for the Christmas Fairy, of course! So make your wishes here and maybe you'll get lucky~! Don't forget to leave the traditional rum outside of your door. Christmas Fairying is hard work.

[In order to properly distance itself from the cabin now parked on the foundations of the Centra shelter from which the structure was built, Balamb Garden has docked in Balamb Town. The erstwhile investigative team has been granted the use of a Garden van to reach their goal with any supplies they feel they might need.]

[Close-up, the cabin and the depression that denotes Balamb Garden's rest location are shrouded in a curious mist -- curious not just because it is out of nowhere, but curious because it is both oddly warm and unusually dark. Stepping into the mist is like stepping into a jungle, complete with shadowy half-light cast by great trees looming overhead that don't actually exist.]

[The cabin sits in the middle of this morass, dark and closed.]

Why you should vote Grell Sutcliff for HOMECOMING QUEEN :

    1. It would only be natural for me to elevate my previous title of HOMECOMING PRINCESS.

    2. No one else, especially not a pony, would look better wearing that crown!

    3. Becoming Homecoming Princess was quite the magical night for me, so I wonder just how much more magical becoming Homecoming Queen would be!

    4. When I become Homecoming Queen, I vow to only rub salt on the wounds of my competitors for that night.

So please look forward to a myriad of events from me in the days to come! For today, stop by the quad for freshly baked cupcakes. First come, first served!

[PM to Namur, Espio, and Thatch]

Which one of you will actually run? It would be nice to have a running partner.


[Grell will be at the quad, giving out cupcakes with different pastel frostings. They are definitely from a bakery, but she made sure to get to them first thing that day, so they were indeed fresh.

She is totally trying to gain all the votes by any means.]

Greetings Balamb Garden!

It's about that time again, and we're already at number eleven! We have a very special issue for you this time around!

A snippet of various things! )

Until next time, Garden!

Miss Tattler

[It most certainly is posted under Namur's ID. So he must be Miss Tattler!!]

Whats up garden? Hope yall had fun here in sweet dollet town. Gonna be shipping off before too long and who knows when we'll sail this way again. So how bout we say goodbye in style? Dj fishbros got the tunes! Wheres my plannin peeps? Someone bring food, someone else bring drinks. Invite the local friends you made over the break and we'll make it a night to remember!

[A little while later, an IC edit goes up.]

Warehouse down by the wharf. Party starts when people show up. Ends when they shut us down.

[At about the same time this post goes up, certain people will also be receiving PMs individually, though the PM is identical to each person:]

[PMs to Marco, Thatch, Grell, Ace, and Espio]

So weathers shitty and that means the beach is out. One of you guys find us a place to party with a roof overhead and we're set.

[Yes, that's all the context he gives. Let's see if this thing happens, huh?]

[As people panicked or smashed through their doors, or used alchemy on them, or otherwise wrecked up Garden and fled into the lobby or the halls, a few things have quickly become clear, either shouted or spread by word of mouth:]

[Garden is precariously balanced on the edge of a canyon wall -- a canyon wall that was certainly not there last night. Garden didn't move all through the night, either, so how this happened is anybody's guess...]

[Speaking of precariously balanced, we DO mean precariously. The tilting has been perceptible, but glacial, and in fact it has slowed noticeably since Rainbow Dash started pushing against the bottom of the suspected edge of Garden. On the other hand, some people removed a car and a few people from the over-land side, which has made the balance slightly worse, and so the pony is losing ground again.]

[People remain scattered in small groups within the Garden, and the power remains completely out. This is not terribly surprising; the internal generators are not particularly hardened, since normally any damage that reached them would have to go through the entire surrounding structure to get to them. Dorm rooms are beginning to light up as sunlight trickles through their windows, but the lobby and many other areas still have no light.]

[No sign of Commander Zabala or Headmaster Cid. Rumors are swirling from some of the cadets that this is another of Zabala's crazy tests.]

[What's the plan?]

[Thursday morning, 0559 hours.]

[Garden as a whole abruptly drops two feet.]

[The facility strikes the ground with a massive crash and shake that bears the full weight of every single one of its pounds. Loose items tumble to the floor and glass shatters in a cacophonous tumult that only serves as counterpoint to the greater and far more ominous crash of earth meeting metal. Massive vibrations race through Garden as different parts of it resonate with the force of the impact. Somewhere on the first floor, a chocobo literally screams in rage, a sound almost monstrous in its inhumanity. The lights flicker and then go out entirely.]

[Like an earthquake -- and no one would blame anyone for mistaking the source of the crash and shake, if not for the sickening drop that had yanked everyone's stomach into their throat for a heartstopping moment -- the shaking, roar, and vibrations slowly fade away, leaving only panick, fear, and disarray behind. And very ominous silence. The power has failed; the lights are out, water does not flow, and besides the residents, nothing stirs.]

[Then... slowly, but inexorably, Balamb Garden begins to tilt.]

[OOC: This is a general reaction and mingle post! You may also make your own posts if you so desire. If you need a mod response to a thread for information or a reaction, please ping us through PM!]

[Pinkie is wearing a dark brown, bob cut wig and wearing her cadet uniform around Garden. Today, she wants to see how well she can blend in with everyone else. Playing the part of a newly transferred student, 'Diane' will be looking around at her 'new' surroundings. Those that truly know Pinkie may recognize her, but she won't be acting like her usual self!

She looks at her map, as if trying to decide where to go to first.]


[There is a lure attached to a fishing wire dangling in front of your face. What will you do?

Yes, Pinkie, out of her disguise, is fishing for...people? Ponies? Sharkmen? Who knows.]

Well since we're breaking away to begin with, why not go all the way and just become pirates? Floating the seven seas, waving our battle flag from the massive white dome. Pillage and plunder and the occasional panty raid. What do you think? Shall we put it to the vote?

Tuesday/thursday morning biology 101 students i got your tests graded and im working on your papers. Ha! You guys are funny. Did good on your tests but youre papers suck. Seriously yall need to come talk to me or instructor enpecee cuz i dont think a single one of yalls got a damn clue what we been talking about. Aint got an office tho so im set up here on the beach. Bring something to drink and something to write with and we'll get ya up to speed.


[As promised in the BBS post, Namur can be found chilling in a big hammock strung up between two trees. The papers he's in the process of grading are piled in a folder with a rock dropped on top to keep them from blowing away, the ones already graded in a similar folder. He's got his laptop and a couple text books in the hammock with him, one he's using as a hard backing to write on, a few bright red pens scattered over the lot, and a couple of water bottles in a pile at the foot of one of the trees. Yes, he's wearing the shades Thatch gave him for his birthday. Do feel free to come and bother him for fish caught in a net puns whatever reason. He'll appreciate it.]

[On the BBS, under a hacked cadet ID (which took days to even develop a program to do that), there is only a sound clip attached to an odd message:]

Red is the moonlight.
Pink are the stars that bind it.
It makes little sense.


[Although anyone bothering to click on the sound clip will just wonder why there is one of a heart beat, it really is just there to spread a virus. It's nothing harmful. It just changes the text font to red for anyone that listens to the clip.

Why a virus?

Because Grell is bored, and wants to fix any laptops that may have contracted the virus she created, just to keep her busy. It's the perfect plan! She sends a virus, someone comes to her to fix it (hopefully her), she gets what she wants!

Who let her specialize in this...]


[Grell, with her hair tied back into a messy bun, sits in the cafeteria, taking up an entire table due to her laptop being in pieces. The pieces aren't broken, and everything seems to be laid out atop the white table cover in an organized fashion. The cafeteria was the only place with good lighting and large enough tables to do this on. She seems quite focused and getting everything back together, even if it looks pretty impossible. Many tools used to deal with tiny screws and wires were either in her hands or on the table. It depends on when you catch her. There is even a can of compressed air on the table, because since she has her laptop open like this, it makes sense to clean any debris from it.

It's safe to say she won't be answering BBS messages for a while.]

Anyone up for a little piracy? Pillaging? Plundering? That sort of thing? Giving some jerks a bloody nose? Or should we just get hammered and run a riot through good old Balamb?

[Anyone who wants to speak to Thatch will find him underneath the shade of a tree, leaning against it and looking up at the sky, thoroughly bored. An open book on sailing is face down on the ground beside him and there's a bento half eaten as he picks his teeth]

[The day is a bit cloudy, and wind on the water is around eighteen knots. The harbor is bustling with townspeople and visitors. Temporary stalls have been set up selling mostly food and drink or merchandise for the three Raha Cup yacht teams.

[You might need to shove a few people to get right on the waterfront, but the view of the boats in the harbor is well worth it. Once the race begins and the boats are clear of the harbor, remote control boats are available for rental; the race is expected to take two hours.

[At the nearby Balamb Hotel, there is a large TV screen set up outdoors with seating available. Hotel staff are running an outdoor bar for the occasion.

[Throughout the area and within a couple of blocks of both the waterfront and the hotel, a combination of SeeD, Cadets, and uniformed Balamb militia and police are posted as security, in response to threats received by the town council. Normally this event only has police security, so the townspeople seem to resent the need for this increased show of force rather than the fact that they're around at all.]

(OOC: Free-for-all! Feel free to make your own threads as well as using the location threads. NPCs may hit your characters up. You may have your SeeD/Cadet character hired as security if you choose; they will be in uniform, and will be on for half hour shifts so they have time to enjoy the event as well.)

[sometime in the night, two notes will be found under very specific doors]

Espio lad,
Come and talk with me.

My sweetest lady Grell,
I beg your forgiveness for my borish behavior and general bad attitude regarding your lovely person. Please allow me to have but a moment of your kind indulgence at your earliest convenience. I swear that I shall make it up to you in spades.
Forever Yours,

[Looks like someone's finally worked up the courage to actually use the video option on the BBS; though to be fair he looks like he hasn't slept in several days, sunken bloodshot eyes making it look more like he's gone a little unhinged.]

So, I don't know if any of you have been reading the papers, kupo?

[He holds up a clipping from the Esthar Memorial, bearing the headline of "ESTHAR SCIENTISTS DISCOVER NEW MONSTERS, TIME COMPRESSION TO BLAME?" and accompanied with a picture of a... fluffy bunny-looking thing.]

It looks like the Time Compression isn't just pulling in sentient species any more, kupo.

In...uh... completely unrelated news, kupo, does anyone have any tips for... uhm... someone who's been up at least seventy-two studying but doesn't want to end up with hideous traumatizing nightmares when they finally crash?

Alternately, am I allowed to rig my dorm with explosive traps, kupo? The thought that those things followed me here...

Anyone who is taking leadership or tactics classes that I've not yet spoken to, please set up a meeting with me. It doesn't have to be asap, but sooner is better than later. My office hours are posted.

Also, if you haven't started reading yet, you'd better start now. There will be a test and I'd prepare for the worst, if I were you.
