You know the nice thing about justice is that it's universal. Whether people believe in following it out an internal guiding principle, for the sake of society, or the belief in a divine or spiritual intervention, whatever the world, cultural, or legal background, it's commonly considered a good principle.

Obviously I try to focus my classes on the justice systems of this world, or things all worlds seem to have in common, but I'm curious for anyone who knows of specific differences; something that is considered a justice or moral law where they're from but not here or other worlds. The same can go for anyone from this world too of course.

Likewise, I'm curious how all the different worlds enforce their legal systems. Even though each place seems to have some sort of basic governing law, each place also seems to need to enforce it. Maybe no matter what the universe, some people can't be trusted to follow it on their own.

[He will also be seen playing catch/fetch with a bouncy ball later. Feel free to notice the sheer absurdity of an instructor dog playing catch. But in true puppy fashion, he'll just make you play with him.]

Has anyone seen a monkey in the forest?

[Unsigned, unusually for Touma, because this feels insane.]

Hello Danny,

The results from your allergy test have finally arrived. Please come to my office at your earliest convenience so we can discuss them in person.

[ACTION for Tom and Chase, hideously backdated to August 29th]
[Three boys plus Wednesday night in Balamb plus booze. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?]

I'm flattered, and thankful, but one's twenty-first birthday isn't a big deal in either of my cultures. [He has said this many times.] Or even here, considering the legal age for most things is eighteen.

[He whines, but Touma is actually having a pretty good time! Despite being a wine guy (#euro life) and thus making faces at every beer they make him try.]

Bunch of new cadets coming in, huh? Well, I hope you didn't take me being gone as a sign to go all soft or anything.

Lemme be clear -- if you're taking Survival Skills on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, I'm not an easy teacher. I'm only going to be happy with you if you can survive with at least a fraction of the skill that I can, and that's no easy path. So if you want a teacher that isn't kicking you out of trees to make sure you can take the fall, get it the other days.

[He's... he's kidding, right?]

On the other hand, if you get through my classes I personally guarantee that you can survive being dropped naked into the jungles with no problem, so it's kind of a "you get what you train for" thing.

Whatever the way, I'm back in Garden and I'll be hanging around a while. You have any questions, come ask 'em. I'm not all that hard to find unless I want to be~.

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

The directory has been reprogrammed slightly:
It also has a piece of paper stuck underneath:
Kissing booth: Turn around
Food booths: Around 1F main circle
Triple Triad: 2F bridge
Carnival games: Front gate area
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: Road to Balamb

Each stall/booth has free, more elaborate maps:
Big image! )

Have fun, Garden!]

Each attraction will have its own thread. We've listed the people running shifts in the top comments as a reminder to those who signed up; feel free to make your character a thread for their shift even if you missed OOC signups.

Characters have 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 the dunk tank, kissing booth, food booths, and talent quest it's best to leave your character's name in the subject of their comment to start off their thread indicating their shift/time onstage.

Proceeds will be going towards building and furnishing a student lounge for fun stuff, so most attractions cost money:
Kissing booth: 2 gil per kiss
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: 5 gil per person
Carnival games (throwing/shooting X at Y, water gun race, whack a mole, skee ball, Ring the Bell, etc): 1 gil per game
Face painting: 2 gil per person
Food stalls: Snow cones 3 gil, cotton candy 3 gil, and funnel cake 5 gil; "food from your home world" up to individual characters
Dunk tank: 5 gil for 3 balls, 10 gil for 10 balls
Fortune telling: 3 gil per reading
Marriage booth: 5 gil a couple
Balloon animals: 3 gil an animal
Wandering entertainers: Donations welcome
Judgmental Claire stare: 5 gil

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.

So what's a "homecoming" and why should I care? 2 sentences or less. Knock yourselves out.


[One of these days, this guy might get bored of setting up weird, ultimately pointless science experiments in the Quad. Today is not that day. He's laid claim to a large patch of dirt not too far away from the stage (nobody seemed to be using it, all right?), and... planted a large purple gemstone right in the middle of it, apparently. Odd. Where'd he get that from?

Right now he's busy scratching arcane-looking geometrical patterns in the dirt with a small stick, only periodically glancing over to make sure the jewel is still there. He looks downright cheerful, which might be more novel than the shapes he's drawing. No telling how long that'll last if anyone disturbs his circles, though.]

All right, it's pretty clear that there are more species than just humans from other worlds here, but how many different blood colors are there? Even in the Special Zone, there's usually just the one.

And what kind of diversity is everyone used to in their worlds?

Word of advice:

Don't eat bite bugs. They make you sick.

And if you've already made yourself sick by eating bite bugs, don't be an idiot and do it again just in case it turns out better the second time around.

[TRANSLATION: Guess who's managed to make himself ill? He really shouldn't be trying to eat things that can shoot poison at you in the first place, but hey - when bugs look like food to you, those things look rather interesting.

He might as well try to make himself feel better by trying to gross out Min and the other Trepies.

cigardog: (Getting a migraine)
[personal profile] cigardog
[Throughout classes for the past two day, Lt. Furor's been getting increasingly snappy and basically cringes at loud noises and lights. One might even think the instructor is hung over, but nope! It's just Chuck Testa a very bad migraine.

By Friday, the poor guy is just trying to find someplace quiet to get away from everything. Is this your classroom? Oops. Were you baking in here? Damn it. And what's with the band and theater classes? Do they have to kill everyone's eardrums? He's starting to get ready to give up. Or maybe beg for help. Someone throw him a bone?]

Since Holi Tournament is over, why does everyone continue to be so damn loud? Shouldn't you all have less energy by now?

All I want is some peace and quiet around here.

And maybe an icepack without having to worry about the kitchen blowing up while I'm there.

Does anyone have aspirin, or whatever this place uses for migraines? First student to get me that and iced coffee gets a free A on their next assignment.

[What abuse of power? This is obviously both a lesson in justice and international law.]

And something to make it dark. Even the dorm rooms are loud as hell. It's like you all have Spring Fever.

Just wanted to inform everyone the reason their laptops were confiscated was due to bugs being implanted in them.

Seeing as the school was trying to cover this up, I figured someone should inform you you were all potentially leaking sensitive information.

[A) Hey look everyone, it's Crime Dog McGruff. If he was a bulldog and wore an eyepatch. And smoked cigars. Okay maybe not such a good role model for the kids. Still, he's undeniably a police dog. And gruff. Welcome back your new Criminal Justice, and International Law Instructor. Feel free to be perturbed by how he's a human-sized dog doing normal people things.

B) Alternately see him in the hallways catching a smoke between classes and yelling at you to get to your god damn classes already. Or you could snark back at him about smoking cigars on campus. Maybe his bark is worse than his bite. Maybe.

C) And then there's the third option which is just his BBS post.]

It's nice to see more diversity around here even if it means the Time Compression continues merrily on. Where are all you lot from anyway? What was the police force like there?

My name is Furor and I'll be one of your Instructors. Congratulations to the new SeeDs. And all that junk.
