[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...)]

[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!

    First off, Marco and I have returned from our blissful getaway. Souvenirs for those we care enough to give one to.

    Second, I've been seeing a lot of posts with quite illegible typing. Honestly, we're all given courses in writing and such. Please make use of that or stay off the system. You're hurting our eyes, and obviously wasting the money Garden puts into your education. If you're new, then I'd suggest you brush up a bit and acclimate yourselves accordingly. There is the option to just use the video or audio function.

    In conclusion stop embarrassing yourselves and Garden.


    [PM] For Raidou

    I can come by to pick our cats whenever it's convenient for you.

    [PM For Raven

    Marco will more than likely pick up Lark from you when he gets a chance.



    [Grell can be found in an open, grassy area, having a picnic of sorts. A blanket on the ground, a laptop in her lap, and a basket with sandwiches she made herself inside. They're quite edible, which is a big step up. She's munching on one now, looking up at the sky.]

    ‮There has been quite an influx of new cadets lately, so I wanted to take this time to just say 'Welcome!' and hope that everyone is settling in nicely! Some pretty big exams are coming up soon, so good luck to those taking them! If you need any study help, feel free to ask me! This goes extra for those specializing in para-magic!

    Hallo. I was wondering if there was anyone in this world who was originally from a school called Hogwarts? Just in case. Thank you. This is Neville Longbottom, by the way.

    [It's a basic text message. Technology? What is that.

    Alternately, Neville can be found wandering around the town and gardens, exploring the ins and outs of the place. Needing to know the layout and all the exits is habit he hasn't dropped yet. He's still not 100% convinced this isn't all some sort of magic delusion caused by Death Eaters or... he's not even sure what else it could be.]

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

    There's a map on the Directory which shows where everything is located:

    MAP )

    Have fun, Garden!]

    [OOC: As noted, this has been backdated to last Friday. So as not to exclude new characters who came in after, though, it can be assumed that their arrivals were backdated so they can participate.

    PLEASE DO NOT POST UNTIL WE HAVE FINISHED PUTTING UP THE SUBCOMMENTS. Thank you! We're done posting the subcomments, you can go ahead and jump in!

    EDIT: Also, we forgot to mention: Players can assume that characters take 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 Dunk Tank and Kissing Booth, it's best to leave your character's name in the subject of their comment to start off their thread to indicate their shift. Thank you!

    EDIT 2: FORGIVE US! We forgot to mention that there is a price for some of the attractions at the carnival. This is a fundraiser where the money can to go whatever the Garden Festival Committee sees fit; we'll let the players and their characters decide on that front. Here's how the pricing goes:

    KISS: 2 gil each
    FERRIS WHEEL/ BUMPER CAR/ CAROUSEL: 5 gil per person
    CARNIVAL GAME: 1 gil per game
    FACE PAINTING: 2 gil per person
    FOOD STALLS: We'll leave this up to characters to decide.
    DUNK TANK: 5 gil for 3 balls, 10 gil for 10 balls
    FORTUNE TELLING: 3 gil per reading

    We hope this clarifies things!

    [Here is a girl with bright pink, curly hair, bouncing around with a party blower and giving some out random strangers. She's wearing a grin that could crack anyone's face.]

    It's so GREAT to be BACK! [She looks over to her pet baby alligator, who's wearing the tiniest party hat ever.] C'mon, Gummy! Shake that tail!

    [Pinkie Pie rocks on the balls of her feet in excitement.] There are so many new people! [GASP] That means there are a lot of new names and BIRTHDAYS to remember! And you know what meeeaaaannnnns!

    [Gummy simply blinks at her. Of course he does...not. But Pinkie Pie will tell him, right after she takes a deeeeeep breath. Uh oh.]


    [Let the parties BEGIN!]

    [Later on the BBS, when she runs out of party blowers.]

    HI EVERYBODY! And a special HELLO to all the new arrivals!

    I guess I'm new to, huh? Hahaha!

    I'm Pinkie Pie! I'll be your cute and friendly instructor for Home Economics! That's just a fancy title for cooking and sewing and baking and EVERYTHING COOL AND YUMMY class! I just got back from a REALLY awesome mission, so I look forward to meeting EACH and EVERY one of you!

    Don't think you can escape! Pinkie Pie will find you!

    Bye now!

    [Since arriving and being interviewed, Sollux had spent the entirely of his stay at Balamb Garden curled up in his room. He couldn't sleep - not when he was so wound up and distinctively lacking a recuperacoon. But the outward world was a scary place, and he didn't have very high hopes for it. Despite the fact that his hosts had yet to actually do something terrible to him, it was nigh impossible to put the possibility out of mind.]

    [But eventually he goes out, if only to prove to himself that he can and that he's allowed to. He's almost surprised when nobody stops him from leaving the dorms, and once he's to the lobby he's officially out of ideas of what to do with himself. Everyone he's seen is the same, pink skinned alien race he saw in Timber, and he doesn't feel comfortable talking to them. At least not of his own accord.]

    [So he finds a slightly concealed area of the lobby and perches himself on it, watching people pass by, and trying to coax himself down from persistent idea that he should be trying to escape. It's not like he actually has anywhere to go.]

    In the courtyard.

    But whenever anyone with ANY sort of authority walks by, he seems to make the board vanish with a simple slight of hand and a murmured word. Anyone from the Homestuck universe would recognize this as clever use of a Sylladex. Anyone else would blink and scratch their heads.

    [Sollux is simply wandering around looking for a crowded place and someone he can ask for help. He doesn't know where he is, and he doesn't know how he knows where he is, cause last time he checked he hadn't really learned how to smell colors yet like Terezi had, but right now he has a vague idea of his surroundings, however blurry and poorly formed they may be and he can "see" well enough to know he's not back in the veil anymore. He's carrying his letter in his hand, but he can't actually see the words on the paper in order to read them.]

    Right, give the letter to the blind troll. That makes a lot of sense.

    [He grumbles to himself. He's just going to keep wandering around grousing until he can work up the nerve to ask someone for help.]
