I apologize if I have scared anyone since the attack. I have not quite been myself. I am still dealing with a few problems in regards to that, so if I am acting stranger than my usual self, please do not approach me. If you must, please do not come too close. I can't be sure if I will try to hurt people or not. I will still try to teach, as advanced programming doesn't require close contact.

[The stopover at Fishermans Horizon takes maybe two minutes, total.]

[One moment, the Garden is slowing to a halt -- the next moment, the dock latches hiss into their closed position, the ramp into town is secured against the second-floor exit, and the SeeDs are being gestured out the door and into action. In the same moments, in a flurry of action, a hatch deploys on the side of the floating citadel and a transport boat steams out to position itself at the ladder just next to the Garden's dock. The Ragnarok swoops gracefully through the air to land in the center of the city, while down in the train station, traffic has come to a brief halt while an engine waits at full steam, quivering with anxiety.]

[No sooner do the teams touch ground than each receives a small package, easily tucking into a medium belt pouch or pocket. No words are wasted; the SeeDs receive only a cursory nod from the waiting townsfolk before they hurry back into work. The hatch shuts, the latches disengage, and Balamb drifts away, picking up speed as it does.]

Hello Garden,

Do any of you have interest or experience in weapons development? There's something I'd like to discuss with you if you do. I'm particularly looking for SeeDs, but I might need a cadet as well.

-Instructor Cranston

...and unrelated to that announcement, is everyone feeling all right? Something seems to be off in class lately. I'll brew a pot of coffee if our problems with staying awake persist.

[The weather is wonderful, the people are relaxing, and best of all? NO CLASSES! Spending a whole three weeks at Obel Lake is different than all the other trips, but that doesn't mean the fun will be any different!

Well, with the addition of ponies, this break will only be a little different. Any good horseshoe jokes about?]

Need a good mechanic. Probably a quick job, but don't quote me on that. Knowing something about anatomy might help.

I can pay a little, or we can negotiate. Let me know.

- Edward E.

[Unusually, this post is signed; it's that or risk attracting someone he's antagonised in the past. Okay, there are other kinds of awkwardness it might not ward off - questions like "what would you need a mechanic for?" or "hey, did you ever find that crown a brave GFC member left in your dorm while you weren't looking?", just for example - but he can live with those.

On the other hand, anyone expressing scepticism that he has grown at all since arriving at Garden is going to get punched through a computer screen. He'll figure out a way.]

[Not everyone was off having a grand old time at the Homecoming Dance.]

[For example, take this pegasus pony, who -- after clearing the clouds out from around Balamb as promised -- has snuck a purloined cumulus into the Training Center. Not terribly deep inside, but high enough to be out of range of danger, she lies on her cloud and looks miserable.]

[She is, after all, clearly not cool enough to go to the stupid dance where no one wants her around anyone and it's not like she has anyone to impress so she gets an invite onto the Wonderbolts so why should she bother even showing up.]

[Stupid dance. Stupid Garden. She's way too cool for ANY of them.]

Good morning,

I'd like to take the opportunity to remind my Engineering 101 students that the deadlines on our syllabus are final. Please don't allow yourselves to be swept away in festivities to the point that you forget about our essay due Tuesday morning. I've looked over some drafts already and you're doing very well, so it would be a shame not to follow through.

Don't forget that finals are approaching as well. I'll be having emergency office hours all day on Friday if you want to take a break from the festival to discuss your assignments. As always, preparation should improve your fortune---but good luck, regardless.

-Instructor Cranston

Hello, Garden! I have a few Homecoming announcements from the GFC!

First, the winners of our recent date auction for the Centra Orphanage:

Thank you very much for your support, and we hope you enjoy your dates! Payment can be made to myself or any of the GFC members.

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. Proceeds from the carnival will be going towards building and furnishing a recreation room. I've attached the map to this message, and maps will also be handed out around the carnival and the directory will be updated on the day.

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 [just make your character a thread on the carnival post]; 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!

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 Headmaster Cid and Commander Zabala will perform at the homecoming dance!

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!

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

Or in other words, people who didn't get bids. )

[The quad's all set up for the date auction! A handsome-looking blonde guy - one of the native cadets on the GFC - is center stage with the list and a mic, auctionees (and Headmaster Cid, sipping on a drink supervising) ready behind him. (Alas, Pinkie is out campaigning or something, and Mikuru is doing some last minute work elsewhere and doesn't like the stage anyway.)

[He flashes a smile.]
Gooooood afternoon, ladies and gentlemen and everyone else! I'm Russell Drake from the Garden Festival Committee, and I'd like to welcome you all to the GFC's second charity date auction! Once again all proceeds will be going towards the Centra orphanage, so please be generous with your bids! Bids start at 1 gil and we do not take rain checks or IOUs!

We have a fantastic bunch of volunteers for your dating pleasure today, so without further ado, let's get started!

  • Each person has their own thread. Please put your bids in the subject lines so people can see them! Threads collapse after fifty comments, so using the subject lines will make the bids easier to see.
  • Bids close and winners will be posted on Friday before the carnival post goes up. IC-ly, the winners will be announced Wednesday afternoon.
  • If you missed signups, PM [personal profile] wrmods and we'll squeeze them in as an IC "saw the auction on the day, hopped onstage and harassed the GFC to auction them off" auction. Just characters who would willingly sign up at this point, please!
  • Action

    [Snake had just arrived and was left staring at the papers in his hands and the strange device. He blinked in confusion, and then in panic as he realizes that the snake that had been hiding behind his ear, Dan, was missing. He was glad to find Emily and Oscar still with him, however. He takes a breath, looking around in silence at the strange surroundings.

    He started wandering around, not really sure what he was doing. He goes through the lobby and then the quad, looking a little out of place with his butler outfit. Oscar wrapped himself around Snake's upper arm and over his shoulder, while Emily draped over his other shoulder. He kept the letter in his hand as he walked around, hoping to overhear something that might shed some light on what was going on.]

    Hey, what's this?

    [Just as the elevator doors open on the first floor of Garden to admit the two awaiting it, the cadet inside holds up a box that looks, for all the world, like a cigar box. No sooner do his fingers touch the lid, though, then a noxious black smoke begins to creep out of the cracks...]


    [You might have thought today would be peaceful, but no such luck. From behind the counters, a pair of massive bats crash upwards and into the air, their shrieks just on the upper edge of human hearing and like nails on a chalkboard. Even as the air shimmers around then, they dive to the attack...]


    [Wait, isn't that dorm room uninhabited? Then what's banging at the door?]

    [Answer: a pair of massive, red-and-black wolves that a second later smash through that door, saliva and froth dripping from their fangs and flames curling around their claws as smoke spills out around them to engulf their intended prey...]

    [Classroom Hallway]

    [A crash, a clatter, a thud, and a curious crunch presage the door to the magic classrooms buckling, then shooting inwards as if it has been sucked off its hinges by a massive vacuum cleaner. A moment later the source emerges -- a black sphere with no features, no reflectivity, no nothing but smooth perfection and a seeming absence of light. The closer it gets, the more dramatic the pull towards it, but that doesn't seem to affect the smoke that's boiling out the door to surround it...]


    Who disturbs my sleep?!

    [No sign of Garden, no sign of the elevator, and the hapless cadet is clutched in the massive claws of the demonic red-black figure that has appeared seemingly out of nowhere. Contemptuously, Diablos discards his first heedless victim, then turns his attention to the other two with him...]

    [OOC: Welcome to the secret event! Each location has been sealed off by the power of the GF Diablos, and its inhabitants have been cast into a black rocky plain in darkness... so, not your best day, then. Don't worry, when the monsters you face have been defeated, you'll be freed from your imprisonment, and might even have the chance to help others if need be! Your randomly-determined location assignments are in the comments, so go wild!]

    [Pinkie, dressed in a blue t-shirt with balloons on it (similar to that familiar cutie mark), a pink tutu-like skirt, blue and yellow striped thigh high socks, and pink sneakers is walking around Garden handing out lollipops with tags attached. Each tags says:


    As she gives them out, she's smiling brighter than the sun! But during off hours, she looks around in search of something. In her case, it's actually someone. One can tell by her facial expression that she's genuinely worried.

    Gummy is attached to her shoulder this time, sporting a little bow tie.]

    So, um. I saw my name mentioned earlier with this Homecoming thing as one of the 'princesses'. But, see, the thing is? I never did anything like this Homecoming back home, so I don't really know what to expect. I was told it's like some kind of competition, with recruiting or something? How does this work, exactly?

    Since this is supposed to be a competition, good luck to all you others who were nominated! I'm sure this Homecoming will be a lot of fun!

    By Yggdrasil, gratulations to the warriors who have been deemed worthy of the welcoming crown. May you do Balamb proud in your terms.


    [The last time Sigyn made a blurb on the network (not including when she reported herself to Mr. Raisin Razem) she'd been talking about starting her own garden, and being in need of tomato seeds. Now some time has passed since then, and she's gathered all the material required for her garden.

    She sits outside, knee-deep in dirt, with a hammer, some cut planks, nails, and a small shovel. She's started to make a little digging area against one of the walls, replacing dirt and lowering the bump and jags of dirt and grass. She's already gotten quite a bit of dirt on her clothes (thank goodness for these overalls) and skin, so it might be difficult to recognize her, especially with her hair tucked under a cap.

    And, no, she didn't ask for permission to start this garden.]

    [Neither is signed, but... given the topic, how many different people could this possibly be?]

    Given that Time Compression is how it is, I have a question for you. When someone's supposed to be dead, and you already tried to fix it and it didn't work, what do you actually do with them? Do you tell them, or just settle for your relationship (whatever it is) being awkward as hell for as long as they stay here?

    And don't give me "just be happy they're alive." That doesn't work. They're still gonna go back eventually, and they're still gonna die.

    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.

    Heh, been a while since I've been around this place. Gotta say that it hasn't changed at all, other than the faces that are wandering about.

    So, Garden, mind telling me if I've missed anything interesting in my time away? I can't be out of the loop on these things.

    And while we're at it, for those who don't know me, the name's Reno. Not Sir. Not Mr. Not Mr. Reno. Just Reno, got it? While I'm here I'm going to be teaching two little classes starting next quarter. One of them is about making shit explode, how to make things that make shit explode, and how to diffuse things that make shit explode. If you got sensitive ears or can't handle the way I talk, then don't bother. The second one is for those of you going towards Covert-Ops, the class is specifically for that type of thing. I may not look or sound like the person who can teach that, but I'm one of the best.

    Any questions?

    [Later on, about mid-afternoon, Reno is hanging about the cafeteria. His feet are propped up on one of the tables, mag-rod lazily hanging from his left hand. He seems calm enough right then, the place being relatively deserted at this time of the day, meaning it's quiet for once.

    An unlit cigarette dangles loosely from his lips, not seeming to be too upset about the fact he can't really smoke inside.]

    [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.]
