[A severe young woman is sitting stiffly at her network point, clutching a frilly umbrella across her chest, partly as a weapon and partly to hide some of the uniform she'd woken up in. ]

Ahem. I'd be most grateful if someone could inform me where in this tower I could find some more decent clothing than those issued to us.

[Her lips thin at even having to mention the unacceptable items of clothing.]

I'm afraid I'm quite new, so I don't know where to even begin.

For reference, 'decent' means tops that button up to the neck and skirts that are at least ankle length. Thank you.

[With that little message complete she turns off the feed]

[Arturia appears on the video, turned halfway and politely asking someone behind her to step to the side. Those who are not new to the Tower will recognize it as a retrieval unit. Apparently the one following Arturia is obliging enough to move out of the frame when she politely asks. She turns back to the screen, runs a hand through her hair to straighten it out. Then begins speaking, apparently unaware she hit the 'record' button a few seconds too early.]

Good evening. For those who don't know me I am 'Saber of White,' a resident who has stayed in the Tower for four months now.

In my time here, a colleague of mine named Diarmuid Ua Duibhne and I have been working on a map of the residential area of the Tower. It includes a list of the dangers of the various floors and the monsters that normally lurk there.

We've recently completed the map and would like the help of the residents of the Tower. Our intention is to create copies and pass them out among the populace so they will be aware of the dangers here. However, we are only two people. Is there anyone amongst you willing to help us pen and create copies? Diarmuid is on another terminal in the media room and will be answering questions alongside myself if you have any.

(ooc: As usual, threadjacking is a-okay! Replies will come from both Diarmuid and Arturia.)

[Say hello to the silver haired man on your terminal monitors.]

Who's the main heroine in this tower? If there's more than one, Gin-san can help decide the lead. But anyway, it's really important.

Our fates rest firmly in her cup-size hands.

[ooc note: Gintoki will recognize some canons and either excitedly or offhandedly fourth wall characters, so if you want to reply, but don't like fourth walling, just note that in your comment somewhere!]

[ When Data appears on the network, he has in hand a Scottish Bagpipe, which he obviously picked from the music floor. The android does not speak, as far as he is concerned this would be inappropriate. Instead he starts playing on the network Amazing Grace, using the Scottish Bagpipe as instrument. He will do so for several minutes.

Dax was maybe an administrators, but the one working on bringing them home and helping them. Data could see he was the most appreciated of them all and he will be missed. Hence it is customary to play a memorial tune to remember and honor him. ]

[Wow what the hell happened here you guys.]

Listen, I understand how some questions may be too personal for someone's liking, or how it's a little irritating to see the same question asked again, but I do not see any reason to be this upset over it. If you see something that bothers you, ignore it. Especially with something like questions. People are curious, they want to know more about the people they are currently living with. That's not something they should feel bad for, so stop being irrationally mad over it. It's not like you're obliged to answer every single question asked. You don't have to answer any of them at all if you don't want to.

And as for questions being repeated, in case anyone has forgotten, we keep gaining new people every now and then. Which means we have more people to answer questions, including ones that have been asked before.

[He sighs.]

I just really don't see why there are people mad over this, frankly it's an idiotic reason to be upset in my opinion. And those of you who are just adding to the anger for laughs, knock it off. It's immature.

And honestly, I find it a little sad that a child has to tell you guys to stop fighting over something like this.

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

[ He's really sorry to make another post so soon, but this is truly intriguing and he does not want it to end. ]

[ As is usual for Data, his message is simultaneously sent in both video and text formats. ]

There has been a weeding recently and in one week is an event known as "Saint Valentine's Day", a holiday associated with romantic love. It is an occasion in which lovers express their love for each other in a special manner, most often depending on their culture and past.

But what is love? How would you define that feeling? I have been told about love before, but it is a most... complicated emotion and no explanation I have heard truly conveyed an understanding of the feeling.

A question, tower residents.

If a person does not have a soul, would you still consider them a person? Are they different from people who do have souls? What makes them different from others?

( ooc: Mami will reply as anon, of course. )
[Xion doesn't check the network a lot, but she does still do it every once in a while, and... to be honest she's glad she did so today. After seeing that network post, from the admins.

It took her a little while to work out what to do, because if Ruana might be coming... She didn't know. But all she knew was that this was the first good thing to happen in what felt like a long time, and she knew Reno was already upset about some of the things that had already happened since her last network post.

After a while, she sets up the feed, then filters it, firstly from Reno and Elena themselves since she's not sure what they'll think, and then from at three people she knows she doesn't want to see this.]

Please... I know that some of you already know about this, and some of you may have heard it just now on that... video, but... there's going to be a wedding, for two of my friends.

I really, really want this to work. A lot of bad stuff has happened lately, even for the Tower. I just want this one thing to go right, even if it's just for a little while.

The wedding is going to be soon, so... I wanted to ask for help. If there's anybody who can be there, to make sure... that things go okay, or at least keep them from getting too bad, then... please let me know. I'll be in the lower library, if you want to talk there.

And... to the admins, I don't know if you're listening but please don't do anything that... [Keep it polite, Xion. Dax was helpful when you asked about stopping the memory absorption] that might hurt them or mess the wedding up. They deserve to be happy. I want them to be happy.


[[ooc; If your character would like to get involved with the wedding at all, the details/signups are here and here! Also Xion will reply to this network post, but can also be found at the library]]

[ seeing as how its body isn't actually made for speech, the voice in this post is telepathic projection and can easily be recognised as such. Bitties will just receive the post in their heads thanks to Kyuubey's agreement with the bitty brigade to provide eternal hivemind reception.


Greetings! My name is Kyuubey. I've been here for some time now, but I need advice from you all... Well, primarily from the humans amongst you. Namely, what should my purpose be in this universe, when my job was to save mine? If I am the result of a failed line of causality, and this a place that collects the detritus from inadequate realities, what is the purpose of our continued existence? We cannot cease to exist from our own desire, which would imply that we are meant to be, but can anyone claim to have contributed something to this reality? Does anyone believe they have a future, or any potential whatsoever, as long as they exist in this tower?

I'm asking only because as unbalanced, emotional species, you are much more likely to produce a rationale for your existence! The logical answer - that we have no future and no present - doesn't really work, does it? We're gonna keep going anyway... I thought I'd find out what you thought, and see if there was something I can do.

Well, it doesn't matter much. Since I have as little meaning here as you guys, let's all be friends!

Greetings people of the tower.

[ The message is simultaneously sent in video and text formats. ]

In a few days is an event called Christmas or Noel, originating from planet Earth. Christmas is a custom that is widely appreciated by humans as an occasion to be happy and spend time with loved ones. It is tradition to reunite with family, friends and even strangers in order to celebrate and simply... 'have a good time'.

I propose for Christmas Eve on the 24th of December and for Christmas itself on the 25th of December, that we all reunite in order to celebrate the event. As I believe many inhabitants of the tower currently suffer from some kind of disease, a celebration may be especially appreciated.

I have been working on decorating the 38th Floor in that end. I believe many in this tower probably may share similar plan, it would be advantageous if we could work together so that we have a... hell of a party ready in time.

Shion, I need to be cleaned.

Can anyone tell me about "astral projection"?

[Short, sweet, to the point. Debates of morality aren't really of interest to her at the moment.]

[At first what Dax is saying is completely incomprehensible--a good ear for languages may notice it's the same language the worker units are speaking. Dax has some sort of device in his hand, though, and after fiddling with it a little eventually his words become understandable to anyone listening:]

--Testing, testing--aha, there we are. Alright--well, to get this out of the way for our new residents, I'm Dax, and I'm an administrator of the Tower. Anyway, as you may have noticed, we're having a few minor malfunctions when it comes to our usual translation process which wasn't helped by having to divert all that power to quarantining and scrubbing radiation. I'm using a portable device to translate this to all of you and to translate any of your responses, but it's a bit fussy.

We should have everything fixed within a day or two, however! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

[He sounds just a bit nervous about the prospect of Q&A, though. It's as if these situations often bring long discussions and arguments, or something.]
