[There's Legolas, sitting at a terminal and looking thoughtful. There's a small, leatherbound notebook in front of him and a fountain pen. He wasn't sure if they'd belonged to anyone when he'd gathered what he needed but he could return it all later. In neat script on the first page is a passage written in Sindarin. And below it, a translation of it.]

What is it you miss of home, most of all? What is it, that if ever we return, you will seek out first?

I want to write it all here in this book. I want to make sure that no one forgets what most they miss here. No matter what it is that we endure, we'll need only look into it to remind ourselves of happier times. Times that, with hope, are not forever lost to us.

Why do we depend on others? And I don't mean for survival. I get that. Why... Do we need friends? Emotional attachment? I think I get it sometimes, but... I'm tired of being alone, but when I try to find people, that's how I almost always end up. A lot of people I've become close to have disappeared, and I only have a few I've known for a long time or been close to. I'm starting to wonder if emotional attachment is even worth it.

So really, why do we bring this hurt on ourselves?


[For those who want to seek out the boy, he's curled up in the library near the computers so he can check periodically. Otherwise, he'll only respond in text.]

[Hello again Tower! Sorry to be back so soon, but Kidou has a pressing issue that needs to be resolved. And what that issue is, you ask? Well you'll see...

When the feed starts, he silently lifts a box to show everyone.]


Does anyone know who put this in my mailbox? It's unmarked, and the contents of the box are very disturbing. [He's not going to take out what's inside though... it's just too gross.]

I need help from somebody with very nice handwriting. No proof necessary, I'll take your word for it.

Why do I never see anyone freaking out about the fact we can't die???

Doesn't that scare you? We can't even escape this place by dying! It's like a game to these people! Why is it no one talks about this!?


[OOC: Obviously backdated a tiny bit.]
 
 
[Well, if this isn't the most pathetic sight you've seen on this network.]

[There's something on the screen looks like an extremely dirty mop of a person...before you realize that oh, wait, that isn't a mop, that's his hair. Sam Erstwhile seems soaked to the bone, wet hair plastered to his face as he gazes in utter misery at the camera. And when he begins speaking, his voice shakes and shudders, as if ready to crack any moment.]


H-honestly, I do like the rain, I really do. It's nice, after a period of warmth and all, and water is good in general, for plants and things, but...

[He holds up what looks like a couple of seriously waterlogged books- if you can make out the titles on the damp covers, they say "Children's and Household Tales" and "D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths".]

[Sam, in the meantime, looks like he's on the verge of crying and adding to the water already dripping down his face.]


Please, I don't know if there's anyone out there, but the rain..it's getting to my books! My books started getting water on them in the chest I had them in and...oh god, oh god, I don't want to lose them...

Somebody, please help me save them, I really don't want to throw them away! But I don't know what to do, I've never had this happen before...

[He seems oddly unconcerned to the fact that he's a lot more soaked than his fairy tales are, but at the moment he just hugs the books to his chest, as if that will protect them from the pouring rain.]

Why did this have to happen...?


[And anyone on the second floor will see him shuffling around in a slight panic, unsure what to do about this whole situation. Sure, he would take rain any day, he loved water, but when it ruined the things he owned? There would be no love to be found in that case.]
 
 
[ frodo despite his quiet nature, his habit to keep to himself in this place, is still present. he looks far more worn (worse) than last he spoke, his eyes shadowed and blue, face pale. in his hands is a book, acquired from the library, and yes, he's aware of what's been happening.

you'd think he's speak grim words, with such a worn looking body, but instead his voice is light, faint but present: ]


Do you have a story? One that perhaps you've grown up with as a child? Or one that's stayed with you. 'That really mattered, ' As a dear friend might say.

I think I should like to hear of such stories, if you can still remember them. I asked a place before this one the same question, but each person has a different tale, or so I'd believe. What of yours? 

[ if you can still remember them in a place as dark as this, they same to grow darker still, the places he goes. ]

Hey so can somebody tell me what's going on and make it make sense?

Also any way to get cigarettes here, ran out a long time ago and it fucking sucks.

[Feferi's gray skin looks pale as she steps forward, and it's clear that she's shaking. But she takes a deep breath, because this is too important not to tell everyone.]

My name is Feferi Peixes. Anyone who knows me knows I'm infamous for fish puns, but I'm going to hold off on them here, just so the message is as clear as possible. I don't want it to get twisted by a bad turn of phrase.


The message you all saw about the soul thing...it's true. I know, because...

[She takes another deep breath, swallowing hard.]

I went down the elevator, with some others, when we saw it open. We had to take the chance. We needed to know what was down there.

When the group I was with saw a soul being extracted from a dead person, we couldn't believe what we were seeing. More than anything, we knew what a precious thing that was. We didn't want it to be harmed, and so we followed where the retrieval unit was taking it.

...we didn't expect that it would be carrying the soul straight to Jason. We confronted him, we refused to give up the presence of the other groups that were in the administrators' area, and he punished us by forcing us to go through the soul extraction and re-implantation processes while we were still conscious.

Before I go on any further, I have to stress this point: DO NOT TAKE THIS AS AN INVITATION TO CONFRONT JASON. He will not hesitate to put you through that process, and no one should ever have to experience a thing like that. I don't want anyone to consider this as an invitation to take some kind of vengeance. That path only leads to pain.

I didn't think that he was actually capable of anything close to mercy until I went through that. Everyone in this tower has been through it while unconscious, and that is truly a mercy. When it happens, your body is taken downstairs and placed into a sphere. That sphere fills with a violet liquid, and then it begins to contract.

[Tears start to run down her cheeks as she remembers, and her voice cracks.]

It quite literally squeezes your soul out of your body, and that is like no physical pain in this or any other universe. I don't think there is a single word that is capable of describing it. Agony isn't strong enough, because the pain keeps going while you feel your body stop working.

And even when you are only that shining light, the pain doesn't fade immediately. It takes time.

Then, you're surgically put into - into a...a new body. I...

[She can't keep talking. She breaks down sobbing, and then the feed cuts.]

[The feed shows a freaked out blonde young girl, looking at the screen.]

Where the heck am I?

[Her eyes get bigger as she gets more desparate by the second.]

What is this place?

[Now, she’s screaming.]

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?
 
 
08 February 2013 @ 07:14 pm
Sorry to bother everyone, but I have a quick question I hope someone who know more about the topic could help me with.

[Madoka takes a deep breath]

My name is Madoka Kanami and I'm a magical girl, just like a few other people who are already here. But, unlike them, I don't have a soul gem and became a magical girl in a  very different way from what others I've talked to went through in order to become magical girls.

Since we're so different no one I've talked to seems to know a way to prevent me from eventually turning into something horrible. If anyone knows a way I can prevent that from happening, even just for a little while, I'd very much appreciate if you could tell me. Even if it's just a guess, it would really help.

If you need to know anything about this, please just ask. I'll do anything I can to help.

[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.

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. )

[There's a pause before any words are spoken, Ishimaru hasn't used the recording equipment here before and he's making sure it's working properly. When he seems content, he smiles cheerfully, addressing his audience.]

Good morning! It seems most people have had a chance to explore the newly built floors. I hope you all exercised caution in doing so!

[The chipper smile on his face fades slightly.]

As well, I would like to make sure it is known that the hazardous conditions are not an excuse for rule-breaking! If I find anyone behaving poorly, on my honor as a disciplinary committee head, I will see you punished for your actions.

Notably, it seems that some of you also need a reminder that cannibalism is strictly prohibited. Those found guilty of such a thing will face severe penalties!

Does anyone else here have any problems recognizing other people? Because everybody looks the same to me.

[ And she's not pleased about it. ]

I'm going to miss being taller...

[She hesitates for a moment, looking like she wanted to say more... before she turned a brilliant shade of red and reached forward, fumbling with the computer.]

[Private: Yu and Rise]
[And she settles back once it's private to her brother and his girlfriend.]

U-um... onii-chan, Rise-chan... I need to ask you something...

[When the feed first turns on, deep breathing can be heard, as if someone is trying to calm down. After a minute or so, the breathing stops and is followed by a pause. Shortly after, a voice belonging to what seems to be a young girl speaks up.]

H-Hello, everyone. I, um... My name is Wendy, and I'm new here. This is the best way to learn more about this place, right? I-If so, would anyone mind assisting me with some questions I have?

[She takes a deep breath.]

So, ah... Other than what the letter explained, is there anything important I should know about this place? Like... What dangers there are, or where other points of interest might be, for example.

[Another deep breath.]

I'd... I'd also like to know how people arrive here, and if it's possible if people from the same world arrive later than others. And finally... [A pause.] Are we stuck here forever?

[She takes one final deep breath.]

E-Even a little information would be helpful. Thank you for listening!

[ Nothing will be able to distress Kyouko, and for her world being destroyed? She was reluctant to believe it, however was it much better, from living within a death school?! One thing that bothered her was the collar wrapped around her neck, and what purpose it served.

It wasn't soon before long that she had found any means of communication, to find out where this place was, and what she could do about it. As the video turned on, stoic expression would be met, alongside a pale-skinned detective.

Her expression did not change, only trying her own patience and ready to speak. ]


I have questions to ask to those who happen to be watching.

[ Now she waits. ]

[Kirigiri's anything but fond of making her presence public. After all, no matter how you look at it, it's better to conduct your business subtly in any sort of dangerous situation.]

[However, her interactions with Naegi have been limited as of late, and she has gained precious little information about this tower. Monobear's activities, however, have slowed down. Now's a good time to act.]


Does anyone here have any skill with computers?

[Of course, she knows of at least one person who does, but simply mentioning the ability constitutes asking to talk to Chihiro.]

Have there been any more encounters with white spiders lately?
