you know, it's kind of funny.
The first day I woke up here, they were serving heart-shaped pancakes.
and now, after my little forced vacation, what's the first thing I see?
the same ridiculous, twee pancakes.
happy anniversary to me, I guess.
I'd say try harder next year, but I guess that won't be an issue anymore.

FYI, anyone still hanging onto the hope that your home is really okay? don't bother.
and the people crowing about how they're going to "fix our dead worlds" sure as hell better, since I'm in no hurry to go back to THAT.
I was so bored I thought I'd go insane.
I hate to think about how the rest of you bleeding hearts would fair.
sheesh, just THINKING about how pathetic it'd be is making me cringe.

[Since it's not like he was bothered or anything!!!]

[Shinji can also be found skulking around the libraries and the media room, should anyone want to stumble across him in person.]

alright, since we're back to asking played out, meaningless philosophical questions in between, you know, posts of actual value, I figure we MUST be bored.
so, in my infinite generosity, I'm putting up another one of these.
don't worry, no need to thank me! I'm just looking out for everyone's best interests.

same drill as the last time.
select "anonymous" and go nuts.
talk some trash, make that love confession you're too spineless to say otherwise, play anonymous hangman.
you'll feel better afterwards.

(seriously, though, friendly reminder: no1curr.)

I've been thinking. It's getting to be almost winter, and I know a lot of times, especially during Jason and Ruana's months, there's no real heat.

[Either they lost power or someone turned it off or... something]

So I think that those of us who can sew should get together and try to make as many clothes as we can that people can use. Especially people who don't have a lot of warm clothing from home. We can't really do anything [read: mount resistance efforts against crazy administrators] if we're too cold to move.

Anybody who's interested could meet on floor 51. The fabric there isn't too good, but we don't have much else and I've read about how to survive in the cold; layers should still help. And we should pick a place where people can get the clothes as they need them.

[If nothing else, her room would probably work in the short term. There were two empty beds in there, though there was also the problem of people not being able to get them if there wasn't somebody in the room]

Could anybody help me with this? I'm getting better but I can't do too much by myself.

I'm not imagining that it takes longer and longer to be able to move again every time you die, am I? Someone else has to have noticed this.

Why do you think that is?

[Today, Hakuno Kishinami looks tired. Not defeated, or depressed, or anything like that... just emotionally exhausted. The loss of Caster hurt her a lot more than she thought it would, and she had allowed herself a couple of days to mourn losing yet another person she's grown to like... but she can't keep doing this. She recovered after losing her dear Saber, so she can soldier on through this.

The loss of her other Servant did cause something good, though: Hakuno's finally getting off her butt and taking an active role in her own protection.]

I have a question... well. A question and a request, rather.

Is anyone good with swords? Not... fighting, really. [Though she probably still could use some help there...] I mean making them. Fixing them.

[She reaches off-screen for something and holds it - them - up: pieces of a sword. Broken, obvious, but still rather wickedly sharp-looking.]

A while ago, this showed up in my trunk. It was... a special sword I had received back home. I was wondering if someone could help me fix it, and strengthen it. It was only meant to be used once, but I'd really like to change that so I have something to protect myself with.

... I, uh... I don't really have anything I can offer for your services... but I'd still be willing to help out somehow to repay whoever can assist me.

alright, you chuckleheads.
you're all obviously very bored, and since you're incapable of coming up with entertainment that isn't pants-on-head retarded, I'm here to help you out.
I know, I know, I'm very generous.
so, here's what we're going to do:

reply to this post anonymously and say whatever the hell you want.

seriously, that's it.
blubber about how mean the admins are, talk shit about people you want to punch in the face, whatever.
trust me, you'll feel better after.

I know what happened. Are you happy with yourselves? Doing things when you don't even know what you're doing, or why. Look what you did... there were people suffering, children crying. Do you know how much pain you caused? It isn't right. It isn't fair.

What gives you the right? You take other people's lives in your hands! Take their choices from them. Deciding whether we should live or die for us. Do you think that we want to die? I don't. While there's life, there still hope. We should keep on living, no matter what. We should always keep--

[After this brief speech, Kariya slumps, breathing heavily. His good eye widens, and the swollen veins in his face seem to pulse for a moment. The effort of speaking has obviously taken a lot out of him. The physical and mental shock of the worms returning has taken its toll on him. He looks as if he's having trouble standing upright at the terminal. A spasm of pain crosses his face. When he speaks again, his voice is weaker.]

I need a healer--is there someone who can help?

[A month long visit to a dead world was not the best vacation she could ever have. Not even close.]

How in Elrios do you all manage to go on, knowing that your worlds are decimated beyond repair, by means of magic or otherwise?

[Hence, text. If she talked now she'll probably break into tears.]

[After being part of the latest experiment, Rolo has come to the conclusion that...]

'Free will' is just a myth, isn't it? It is something that does not exist.

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?

if you want to start an intro to philosophy class, there's a classroom you can use.

What is love?

How do you know if you love someone? Is it really as powerful as they say?

(ooc: In before someone makes this joke. Feel free to threadjack and such in response to this.
[The video feed opens on a young boy with green eyes that glow faintly.]

Hello. My name is Sephiroth.

I am interested in learning more about other planets, for research purposes. The planet I am from is named Gaia. I have met people from Earth and Alternia. If you are from a different planet, or if you could tell me more about these planets, please contact me. I do not know very much about Earth or Alternia. We may speak on the network or in person in the library.

I heard that someone has made a list of all the floors, but I do not know what their name is. [Shinji had described them as a "blowhard", but Sephiroth does not think it would be a good idea to use that description.] Could you contact me also? It would be a good idea to make copies of the list or put it on the network for everyone to access.

Another good idea would be a manual for operating the network, if there is not one already.

Thank you.

[Sephiroth believes the network should be useful!

For anyone interested in action, Sephiroth is in the library at one of the terminals, not very difficult to find.

um... i'm sorry if this is rude, but isn't it a little silly to be angry about asking questions of each other? it's the best way to share information that might be important about our experiences here, and to learn about each other, isn't it?

i think it's fine if you don't want to answer any questions about yourself, but i want to know everyone better, too... and, um, you won't ever know if you don't ask, right?
07 February 2013 @ 05:01 pm
these posts are all stupid and you should feel stupid for making them.

stop. you retards need to find another hobby besides shitting this thing up.
If I see one more post about surveys or information, I will not hesitate to set the perpetrators on fire. You have been warned. And if you don't think I'm serious, that's your mistake.

That said, if anyone would like a meal cooked without candy hearts in it, please let me know and I'll see what I can do for you. In a similar vein, if anyone needs clothing made or fixed, I will be glad to do that as well- anyone who went to the wedding saw my handiwork on the bride.

[Her impassive tone turns slightly cold, eyes narrowing.]

And to anyone who has recently arrived, my name is Chidori Yoshino, and if you so much as think about laying a hand on Ken Amada, Jin Shirato, Koromaru-san, Dave Strider, or [a millisecond's hesitation] Naoya Todou, I would suggest you reconsider-- because I will know, and you will not like what happens.
