[The video clicks on, showing a clearly worn out Jade Strider, with a small handful of bleeding scratches and some burn marks on her face, and for once completely lacking her "cool kid" composure. She's breathing heavily and obviously panicked, but compared to John Lalonde it looks like she got off easy-- in the background he can be seen leaning over some pile of debris near two chairs, his face reduced to a bloody and battered mess from an explosion. Both of them seem to have an extra collar on under their colored collars, linked by chains to a strange box on the ceiling of the Library.
When she started talking, it was hurried and rushed, and she sounded like she was about to cry.]

H-Hey-- the fucking bomb just-- blew the fuck up in John's f-face and there's metal and shit in his face and it's all fucked up and we ne--!

[Her sentence was cut short with the sound of a "snap," the chain suddenly retracting on both ends, violently pulling John away from the bomb's remains and Jade away from the computer terminal.

Given the way both of their bodies were now hanging limply from the ceiling, that "snap" wasn't just the sound of the mechanisms.

After a minute or so of that image, someone enters the screen. She looks similar to a popular movie icon, if anyone into horror movies are watching, but just a little more terrifying. She smiles, waving a wooden hand at the camera, before switching the feed off.]

i see the network is working properly again!
good, good. that makes this easier.
i want to play a game, my fellow tower mates.
do you think you can survive any better than these two?
it's a shame they couldn't follow the rules, isn't it?
hee hee hee.
i hope you all are ready.
oh, before i go, if anyone needs candy there's plenty to be found in the library!
i'm sure they won't be needing it.

what do you while waiting for the sleep paralysis to wear off?
i mean it was kind of terrifying the first time
and maybe even the second time
but at this point its like the hugest fucking waste of time to be stuck lying on your bed waiting to get feeling to your fingers again
but now im curious
what is the longest you got stuck lying in bed for
like an approximate if you werent sure of the exact time

cut for lime green courier! )


[After posting her message on the network, Jade decides to begin looking around! She figures getting a feel for the layout of the place is probably the best course of action right now. She can be found pretty much anywhere and everywhere. Feel free to stop her and chat! She probably sticks out a bit, what with the odd outfit and the dog ears.]

wow, oookay.
this place is pretty messed up!
i find it to be a terrible fourteenth birthday present.
even if it's not my birthday anymore.
but, uh, belatedly!
hi, i'm john egbert.
apparently there's a lalonde-me running around, so hi lalonde-me.
it's really freaky to consider a me, that's also a rose, but still me?
how does that even work. is that like doomed timeline shenanigans?
wow does that mean there's a doomed timeline somewhere that combined me and rose?
maybe i messed up on the ectobiology and created some weird rose-me-hybrid.
freaky tentacle-ghosty-movie-wizard baby!
oh man that sounds like an awesome horror movie or something.
we should write our own horror movie.
hi everybody else that's not-me, too!

AG: Sso I guessss thiss place issn't the Veil or anything like that, huh?
AG: Thiss note iss sort of vague. Doess it mean Alternia hass been desstroyed or that the meteor hass? Becausse the firsst one I already knew about.
AG: If it meanss the ssecond one hass too... Did everybody from my ssessssion make it here ssafely??
AG: I guessss this putss my planss on halt, though it could alsso mean that the Demon iss gone too? That would be kinda great and really convenient!! It'd be nice if I didn't have to get sstabbed after all.
AG: Maybe I had ssome of Tavross'ss luck?
AG: Anyway, all of that doessn't matter much right now, I ssupposse. I jusst really want to make ssure that my friendss are alright too.
AG: Honesstly, I'm not even ssure if anybody elsse is here, but I ssaw ssome other namess on the placard outsside the room I woke up in, sso that'ss gotta mean ssomething, right??
AG: I really hope ssomebody iss here, because it would really ssuck to be by yoursself in a huge tower with nothing to do! I guessss I could jusst go back to sshoveling hoofbeasst sshit or ssome other animal sshit on one of thosse floorss I checked out.
AG: But it would sstill really SSUCK even if thosse were the breakss, and that would mean that I'm a dumbassss who keepss talking to hersself. But alsso a dumbassss who issn't embarrassssing hersself if there are people around.
AG: Ughhhh, anyway!!
AG: If anybody iss here, esspecially if it iss ssomeone I know, but it'ss OK even if I don't know you, pleasse jusst messssage me back.
AG: Hopefully there iss ssomebody here that knowss more about thiss place than I do, that hass maybe been here longer? }:)
AG: Thankss in advance!!

[If anyone hasn't seen Dirk for a while, it's because he hasn't been here. But he's back now, oblivious to what's been happening in the tower for the past month. The more pressing issue for him at the moment is processing what he's experienced in that wasteland.]

I refuse to believe that was my home world.

[And that's just all he has to say on the matter. What's probably most disconcerting is at this moment, as much as he hates this place, he's glad to be back here. At least here, he's not alone.]
[ After Sertoria's noticed something's wrong with the coffee maker and weird behavior, especially Allen's transformation, she knew she had to inform others before people were hurt. So, here we are. She looks to be focused, but there's vague hints of worry in her eyes. ]

Attention, everyone. Please listen to what I have to say.

If you go into the cafeteria or anywhere where there is food being served, please do not drink or eat anything as I am certain it has been tampered with in some way. I tried to identify what, if any, poisonous substances could be laced in the drinks itself and my database was unable to find a source.

I also am to believe that this substance can transform others, either be by a monster or something else. Please exert caution when approaching them.

I do not know if this is the administration's doing or one of our own. If anyone out there has any information, it would b appreciated. I can show what I have seen as proof, too.

Be safe when this is happening. Thank you for your time.
09 August 2012 @ 06:18 pm
so first
my names not dave strider lets get that out of the way immediately before i get anyone coming on here going
dave is that you???

im jade
alternate universe bullshit

more importantly
does anyone know how to deal with a freaky darkness horrorterror possessing someone?
like i guess
does anyone know an exorcist?
or is an exorcist?
cause i got a friend here with a spooky brain tumor and we think it would be best if it went the fuck away
unfortunately i know shit all about horrorterrors and darknessy demon cult bullshit
except for what i saw in thirteen ghosts
but that movie was shit
and i dont think he wants his head doing a 360 :/
so yeah if anyone knows how to depossesify someone
thatd be great!
03 August 2012 @ 10:57 am

john lalonde i am going to KILL you.


[[Once that ominous message has been left, the young girl abandons the terminal she found on third floor of dormitories and begins her hunt. She has an ass to kick and she will find it. There's a four eyed black kitten on her heels, batting playfully at her coat tails as they walk and under her arm is a very large book of some sort. Occasionally she checks a terminal as she passes because you'd better believe she will descend upon her friend like a hawk when he replies, but beyond that she's going to head down stairs to look on the floor below. Maybe go a few more floors down if need be.

She'll care about where exactly she is later. It's probably just like SBURB anyway. Do some exploration and eventually you'll run into some helpful creatures! Surely that's how it works.]]

Text A;

cut for courier )

Action B;
[A short boy in a rather dark outfit can be found wandering around the dormitory levels. It seems that he doesn't want to stray too far and chance getting lost or losing terminal access in case somebody answers his questions. He's clearly looking for something, pausing at every nook and cranny and looking behind every terminal he passes. Fortunately, he refrains from trying to barge into anybody's room. The search for his loving daughter salamander hasn't gotten quite that desperate yet.]

[Won't it be sad when he finally realizes she isn't here?]

[Feel free to bother him, it's not like he has anything that's actually important to do right now.]
24 July 2012 @ 01:29 pm
So... Let me get this straight. [ Someone sounds grumpy and tired and there's a definite hint of an accent. ] We've been rescued by a group of kind-hearted assholes from Gamma-Beta-Three-A that felt we've just gotta wear collars to match our winning personalities, right? Or am I missing something from the care package left behind in the room?

[ There's a pause filled in with the familiar sound of someone lighting up a cigarette. ]

And I thought this sort of thing only happened in bad movies...

Hey! Anyone around?
23 July 2012 @ 11:22 pm
[When Kakine woke up and received his letter, the situation struck him as an annoying change of pace, but at this point, not very surprising. His first thought was to go looking for a place to connect to the network, and the terminals were easy for him to find. Business as usual...]

Well, this is a pain in the ass. So, is this a bullshit plot by Academy City's higher ups, another prank courtesy of Asgard's supposed gods, or what?

[He's deadpan and dead serious. It has to be one of those things.]
11 July 2012 @ 01:09 am
well my faciliberry is gone but i am glad i found a computer!
even if it is a very basic one
i am sure that this could possibly be another experiment by miss val
it even makes sense!!!
considering i was asleep and we had had seven days of memory sharing.....
uuuugh no i dont want to think about that

could someone please tell me if this is the facility?
maybe even facility 3??
even though that note was kind of discouraging.......
really weird too :/
i am going to continue to hope that it is not true and that everyone is here!
jack, davesprite, dave?????
oh and terezi and sollux and feferi too! (and eridan i guess....)
i am calling a team meeting back at the house!
if i can find the house........
okay well i guess just respond, please?

for anyone else, hi! my name is jade harley and it is very nice to meet you :)
i have a feeling that this place is full of people i havent met yet
even space powers are being kind of funny!
could someone explain whats going on?
10 July 2012 @ 09:48 am

[After a few moments, there is another, correct text!]

sorry about that!
i am still getting used to this device
and it seems I got it stuck on the wrong

character set, is what it is called, i believe?

is that the correct way to say it? i am not sure

at any rate, greetings to everyone
i would prefer it had not come at the cost of
my world being destroyed, though
but perhaps it was for the best
considering what was about to happen

it is not like i can return anyway

on a less depressing note i was unaware that
oatmeal was supposed to taste this way!
it is very interesting!
i like it very much!!!

[ooc: Sola was actually saying something with the symbols - feel free to hover over them for a translation! If you can speak starfish, feel free to reply to it. :D]
10 July 2012 @ 07:34 am
 Well well well, isn't this interesting?

[Asakim Dowin appears on screen, actually smiling. Oh he was angry, downright furious at being taken away from his journey to find what he sought. But otherwise, he seemed relatively calm, if not happy. Appearances were deceiving...]

I suppose I would expect to see a certain person here, but this type of setting is impossible for the likes of Vindel to come up with on his own. The note has been read, and I must ask if this is really some hoax or not? I mean I know my world's done for.

[Considering the Einst and Beowulf destroyed it.]

But something nags at me, wondering at the possibility of other worlds existing. An interesting idea, and would make more sense. Otherwise, I must be talking to myself.

At any rate, hello fellow strangers. My name is Asakim Dowin, a survivor of hell's nightmare. I don't suppose anyone here knows a thing or two about robots, do they? I need some assistance in fixing up a certain toy of mine.
09 July 2012 @ 11:59 pm
is it too much to ask for a little fanfare for the end of the universe?
i mean come on im out there busting my ass to do damage to an oversized electronic that a two year old could do with gravity a hard floor and fifteen seconds of irresponsible parenting
the least i could get is some fucking fireworks when the universe ejects you from existence!
but fine whatever
first order of business
who the fuck took my shovel?
you give me my gun and my rad pjs and you dont give me my shovel thats stupid
second order of business dont step on the black globs
it sucks and its stupid
third order of business dont eat the eggs here theyre fucking nasty
like seriously poultry doesnt even come in that color
maybe they made it from the black globs
02 July 2012 @ 11:28 pm
[If you're in room 2 - 10 then you are perfectly free to bother him. He's already woken up and gotten acquainted with one roommate of his and now he's not doing a whole lot. It's a good time to introduce yourself, if you want.]
[Network Post]

id really just like to know who the actual fuck has enough power to remove somebody from am sburb session.
like im not an expert on sburb or anything.
but that shit seems like it should be impossible.
and way to go dipshits but the earth was already destroyed.
and youre not the one who did that.
so there we go ive caught you in your fucking lie.
but its whatever.
ill go along with it for now.
i mean youve clearly got the most sugoi of fashion senses.
white spandex.
yellow collar.
i just feel so goddamn beautiful in it you have no idea.
k but seriously im pissed off.
i go from one shitty situation to the next.
when the hell does a bro get a break.
apparently the answer to that is never.
fuck me i need a beer.

please tell me this place has fucking booze.

also dave.

because if youre not.

im wrecking their shit.

Specifically for the occupants of 2-10
[When Dirk awakens and can't move at first, he finds himself panicking. This isn't something that normally happens, so it's a huge relief when he actually is able to move. Immediately, he's able to tell he's not where he should be. His memory is a little hazy due to the fact he's still waking up, but he knows that the last thing he was doing, which certainly wasn't sleeping. Who could sleep when their home was under attack?

The letters he finds answers a few of the initial questions he has, but it leaves a billion more unanswered. His world was destroyed? Given the state it was in, he isn't surprised, but he was supposed to get into the game first. He's pretty sure this isn't it. This is horribly disconcerting, because he can't help but wonder about his friends. Did they make it to safety? Are they here?

After another few moments, he's aware he's not the only person in the room either. Well then.]

...Who are you people.

Network; open.
I'm not entirely sure what is going here, so perhaps someone can shed some light on this situation.
How is it that I've arrived here?
I'm finding the information provided by the welcoming committee highly doubtful for a multitude of reasons that I don't have time to get into at this time.
With that, I'll cut to the chase; in the off-chance that it's actually correct, that my world was destroyed, I must ask.
Does anyone know Roxy Lalonde, Jake English, Jane Crocker and their whereabouts?
02 July 2012 @ 12:33 am
This post, if people would like to utilize it, can be used to quickly meet up with those you were separated or stranded from during the previous month, as well as ensuring one another of your safety.

This will help ensure that we have one place to check for such correspondences, and will not flood the network with an overabundance of the same sentiment.

You're free to utilize your own means, of course- I simply figured this would be a useful tool, after all that has happened.
11 April 2012 @ 06:53 pm
what the ever loving fuck was that???
thanks so much shitty tower
i wanted to see earth as a desolate shithole
