[Healed at last. Fully cleared to fight again! As Rainbow sits on her cloud-bed, running a hoof over the scar that marks her chest strongly enough to leave a line through her fur, she wonders if that's because she's actually well, or just because they want everypony available to fight.]

[Doesn't matter, though. She wouldn't miss this if she was on death's door! ...again. Fate of the world? That's old hat for her! It's everypony else she has to fight for that drives her on.]

[As she slides off the bed, she gives a pet to Tank's head, then paces over to the dresser. Maybe she ought to wear her uniform in the fight. Let them all know who she's fighting for?]

[...then again, they MIGHT just think she's a random monster and ignore her, if she doesn't.]

[Around the female cadet dormitory, one can spot Grell passing out red envelopes with a rose scent. Either one is given into hands personally, or slipped under doors. There is a flyer inside, with an advertisement for Girl's Night!]

Refreshments will be served, along with music and makeovers!
Wear comfy clothing!

Brought to you by Grell for Homecoming Queen!

[If she isn't in the dormitory, then she's on the computer in the quad or at the desk playing secretary (which...is her job).]

[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.]

[For a very long time now, a pegasus pony has zipped through the halls and across large dome of the Lobby without respect for physics or gravity. The sound of air rushing over feathers and the sight of a rainbow wake are common to the point of being uninteresting. Instead, for the past few days, their absence is what seems unusual.]

[Rainbow Dash hasn't much felt like flying lately. Instead, the pegasus plods from place to place with the weary, slow pace of a plowhorse at the end of planting season. No spring in her step or wind in her wings, just a slow, dispirited trudge.]

[She has a lot of reasons for her lack of energy, some more obvious than others, but it's easy to guess at the straw that broke the pony's back; every time she passes through the dorms, she stops to take a long, sad look at a room that had up till recently been inhabitated by one of her best friends.]

[Then, sadly satisfied that once again, looking at it will not bring the alicorn back, she trudges on, without really much hope for anything right now.]

[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.)

HEY EVERYONE! We should really get together and have a big Hide-And-Go-Seek game, so this way if anymore people-eaters turn up, they'll have a hard time finding us because we're so CRAZY GOOD at hiding!!

And if that doesn't work, we can simply kick some butt!! :D


EDIT: Maybe only a few people heard the news???

People Eaters=Some loonie eating off-worlders! Just because!! How awful and really, really, really gross!! He was caught, though, but there could be more!! D:

[Settling in for a long run on the BBS means Rainbow's actually kicked back with some Polymorphus, so today y'all are getting capital letters because she actually has fingers to hit the shift key with.]

So... what do people think about becoming an Instructor? Something you wanna do? Or if you are one, why'd you become one? What's it like taking the classes for it?

Is it worth it?

I am a volunteering SeeD for Cadets who need an escort for training missions. My weekends are free.


[ With that, Saber closed her laptop. Sitting in the cafeteria at 0915, the Instructor was passing the time by browsing the network. That didn't last long, as it never did much to interest her.

Saber's usual haunt was the library since it was quiet, and she also liked the training area. The best place for her to be, made obvious by the stack of about ten empty plates besides her laptop, was the cafeteria.

She had quite a lot of time to kill over the weekends, especially on Saturday. Deciding to focus on her burger, Saber leaned back in her chair as she looked around from the table she occupied. She had managed to secure one towards the back of the cafeteria, and was somewhat out of the way.

When she finished eating, Saber could be found wandering the lobby, poking into the library to pick up some books, and then heading into the training area to check on things. ]

((Hello, WR! This is Saber's intro post. Feel free to have your character talk to her before she leaves the cafeteria, or find her in the lobby, library, or training area! If your character is currently in WTR 201 on MWF or WTR 202 on T/Th, this might be a good chance for them to say hello to their extremely apathetic and kind of creepy Instructor outside of class!))

[Rainbow had vowed that once she got out of the infirmary, she and Ed were going to have a long talk. And as much as Ed doubtlessly hoped she'd forget that vow... yeah, there's no way, is there.]

[Which is why Rainbow announces her newly-won freedom by popping into Ed's room.]

[Through the window.]

Hey, look who's got a clean bill of health and is out on her own again!

[Somehow, Ed's footsteps lead him right back to the infirmary.

They'd run tests on him as well once everyone came back, but nothing that kept him for long. As far as most anyone else is concerned, and certainly as far as Ed was willing to admit, he could have been stabbed on the battlefield before anything weird(er than a freaking Lunar Cry) happened; junctioning and Cure spells can work wonders sometimes, and there's no trace of any lasting injury. From what he's heard and what he saw in there, he was lucky. It figures, doesn't it? The only good luck he ever gets is the kind he'd rather have done without.

It's interesting to listen to the ways other people are talking about it, in itself. "Spirit worlds", huh? If Ed's honest, he isn't even sure they're wrong.

He shouldn't hang around here, he tells himself as he meanders past the beds. Even ignoring the fact that he's nothing remotely close to a doctor and would arguably be more use keeping out of the way instead of bugging people for errands to run... it's a more welcome sight than a mass grave, almost anything is, but he can't shake the feeling that he doesn't have the right.

There's nowhere else he can think of to go, though. And it is an overwhelming relief to run into anyone he knows, bedridden or otherwise - hell, even people he's only ever seen from a distance, if he recognises their face.]

Hey. [His smile is too tired to be hiding any kind of guile, although that might be uncharacteristic enough to be uncanny all on its own.] Everything okay here?

[Night has fallen on Balamb Garden; the halls of Garden are mostly deserted besides the stray student walking about, and even the usual faculty members are missing from their posts around the school. There's a certain festive energy through the air, the source coming from the Ballroom cheerily decorated located on the second floor.

At exactly 2100, as soon as the dinner rush ends, the Garden chime sounds and the intercom clicks on. The Headmaster speaks to the Garden.]

The Graduation Ball is now beginning. Your attendance is requested at [2F] Ballroom.

I repeat, the Graduation Ball is now beginning. Your attendance is requested at [2F] Ballroom. The dance will run until 2400. Students leaving the ball after curfew are to return to their dorms immediately.

[After the announcement, the intercom falls silent. The faint sound of music can be heard from the second floor of the building. In the second floor ballroom, the Headmaster, Garden faculty, and even some of the instructors are present, so troublemakers are free to roam until 2400. Caterers roam, offering drinks and refreshments to the party goers; a stationary stand for punch and food is also offered. Unfamiliar people can be seen speaking with staff and amongst themselves - potential clients, perhaps?]

(Mod note: You may participate in the dance in comments to this post, or opt to make your own new post or log.

The dance is not mandatory (though it is strongly recommended that newly graduated SeeDs attend), so students that choose not to attend won't be punished.

Newly graduated SeeDs are required to wear their uniforms. Otherwise, the occasion is black tie. All inhabitants of Garden are welcome to the festivities.

Should players have any questions left unanswered, feel free to ping the mods via PM.)

[Field exams are often publicly announced, but the date for this one had been given to those involved in private, via private message on the BBS and notes left in dormitories, two days in advance. While SeeDs Nida and Touma H. Norstein had been briefed in private, the cadets would only be briefed on the day, and were simply ordered to meet at the front gate at 0600 hours on Friday morning armed and in uniform.

[Once the cadets and Touma are assembled, Headmaster Cid and a faculty member join them for the traditional send off speech:]

Good morning, everyone, I hope you're doing well this early morning.

[He paces as he walks, eying each cadet and SeeD as he does so.]

This exam will involve three members. )

[As Cid finishes up, the sound of the Ragnarok coming in grows louder, until it lands below the cadets and opens. Nida soon emerges.] Everyone into the passenger room for your briefing.

[Briefly, he pulls Rainbow Dash aside.] Traditionally we let our piloting specialists take off on field exams, but as this mission is time sensitive, I'll be taking it this time. I'm sorry; I promise there is a place for you to fly later in the mission.

    [Morning in Trabia finds Rainbow Dash weaving in and out of the clouds, thumping through each one so that it shudders and dumps another load of snow onto the ground. This isn't some clever plan to solve Trabia's problems, though; she's just having fun.]

    [The whole "people popping in from other worlds" thing had necessarily delayed the first meeting of the Flight Squad, along with... uh, other problems its founded and head is having, but nevertheless, Rainbow Dash has called for all the members to assemble outside of Garden in the afternoon period slated for activities.]

    [While she waits for them to form up, she's warming up herself -- little things like loops and rolls in midair, zipping from one side of Garden to the other just to stretch her wings. By the time everyone's arrived, she's gotten enough energy out of her system and enough focus into it to take her place in the air above them.]

    All right, everypony -- welcome to the first meeting of the Flight Squad. Today you all take your first steps on the path to aerial excellence. We're going to work hard, we're going to train hard, but most importantly, we're going to enjoy it, because we are born to the air! Flight is a gift not everypony gets. In a lot of ways, we're very different from our friends and colleagues. That doesn't mean they're worse off for it, they have their own gifts too, but it does mean that we, all of us here, already share something with each other that we don't with others. And we're here to celebrate that!

    [She's been working on this speech. She hopes it comes off as cool as she wants it to...]

    Now, we've got a lot to get to today, so let's get started!

    [A pony has come a-knockin' on Ed's door.]

    [Rainbow frowns abstractly at the ceiling as she waits for him to answer. Is she really sure this is a good idea? Does she really want to go digging up old memories? Despite the fact that the answer to both those question is a definite 'hay no', is she going to do it anyway?]

    [To judge from the way she slumps in midair, the answer to the third is assuredly yes.]

    Being here a few days, there was still a lot to take in. New world, CLASSES, not to mention there was still no Cake. She could deal with any of this stuff so long as she had her sister with her, but she was a no show so far. Swallowing that, she decided she was bound to see her sister soon and started looking through the classes she would have to take. The big question was where she would sleep though, and that question was answered immediately.

    Twilight Sparkle? Was she some kinda princess?

    She was sure it was a girl anyway. It could be a dude, who knew? At any rate, she had to circle around three times and got lost a few before she finally arrived at her dorm door and knocked.

    "Hello? This the right place?"

    [There's a tortoise loose in the Garden.]

    [This might not be worrisome, except that said tortoise has a helicopter strapped to his shell and is merrily flying around without the level of agility and control one would like to see in a flying tortoise, particularly a flying tortoise with the strength and endurance to ricochet off walls, furniture, and people in ways that do much more damage than Tank receives in turn.]

    [Uh.. duck.]


    [Without much appropriateness for her environment, Rainbow Dash is doing push-ups in the quad. With her wings. Her forelegs are tucked behind her back, and the feathered limbs push her up and down without any real exertion, it seems. She shifts to one-winged pushups, left then right, but only seems to succeed in looking more dissatisfied as she works. Someone help her out.]


    [A rainbow-haired girl is in the Training Center. Just in case some upcoming mission or test or SOMEthing means she's gotta fight under the influence of the Polymorphus potion, Rainbow's decided to clock in some practice time under its effects. She has a Blaster Edge strapped to her wrist, but it's going mostly ignored; as a human, Dash finds that leaping into the middle of grats and using her mad karate skills is a lot more personally gratifying. By this point in her training, she's scratched up and bruised in a lot of places, but the wild look in her eye is pure wicked delight as she chases after another grat.]

    [gratuitous shipping DAN101, so closed to Ed]

    [Rainbow Dash eyes the handout they've been given skeptically. Very skeptically, because buried beneath some diagrams and step patterns on the page is a little note: "Cadets subject to the use of the Polymorphus Potion during external appearances will be required to practice and demonstrate competence in all dances while under the effects of the potion."]

    [She looks nervously over the paper at Ed. He's not gonna like this...]
    elementofloyalty: (shocked)
    [personal profile] elementofloyalty
    [Suddenly, abruptly, without warning, the formerly-comatose Rainbow Dash opens her eyes.]

    [This moment, possibly the most peaceful waking one she has ever had, lasts exactly two seconds before those memories and these memories lace together like a zipper, and she sits bolt-upright.]


    [If you don't catch her in the infirmary, she'll be spending a fair amount of time zipping through the entire Garden like a bat out of Tartarus today, as if the ancient evils from said Tartarus are pursuing her.]
    espio: (and...?)

    [Hey, guys? Remember Espio? The instructor who supposedly quit? Well. He kind of decided that actually, he was gonna keep his job, because teaching is fun. Or something. Yeah, not exactly going to be announcing that, after kicking up such a fuss - he's a little ashamed of making such a U-Turn.

    But there's something he does want to talk about.

    For those who don't already know, Balamb Garden has acquired a new airship, the Chaotix.

    [It looks like this.]

    It's an off-world ship from the Special Zone, but before the natives start freaking out over it, I'll state right now that the Ragnarok completely outclasses it - the Chaotix has a similar carrying capacity and depending on its load it can almost rival the Ragnarok for speed, but its main advantage is its fuel efficiency. Better for the budget and all.

    The controls are considerably different to those of the Ragnarok, and someone needs to show people how to use it. I will be offering familiarisation classes when I'm available, which is generally during the mornings.

    Apply by PM, and I'll make arrangements. Any applicant must already be a qualified pilot through the SeeD program, capable of flying the Ragnarok, or have demonstrable prior experience as a pilot in their home world.

    Got questions? Ask them here.
