Hi, everyone. This is Yukiko Amagi, and I think this is starting to be a ritual with me, addressing the network towards the beginning of the month...

[She laughs at herself for a moment, but quickly regains her composure. She has something serious to say, after all, and she can't say it if she's laughing at herself.]

Anyway, that's beside the point. I know that since Jason's death, the revival process hasn't been running nearly as smoothly. There's no need to hide it; I don't think there's a one of us left here that hasn't seen a friend come back hurt. I know this is going to sound harsh, but we all need to realize that it's probably not going to get a lot better in the short time we have left.

There's no need to suffer in silence, if you've come back and you're still injured. I have healing magic and I'm sure others here also have it. If you're hurt, don't keep on being hurt. Come find one of us, and we'll patch you up as best we can. All right?

[She pauses, blinking for a second.]

...it sounds so strange to say the words 'Jason's death'. It doesn't quite feel real to me yet. Is that just me, or does anyone else feel that way?

[She clicks off the feed with that question.]

 I know this month isn't going to be a very nice one....

So, I was wondering - perhaps some of us can get together and make cookies and cakes and stuff? I think we can only make pumpkin ones, sadly, but we can still make them as delicious as ever! Unless some of you guys have other fruits that we can use? That would be wonderful, too!

Zelos, Feferi, Diarmuid, Kyoko and Cu, maybe you wanna help! Both the Rikus, too! And what about you too, Ryoji? And if you've got friends, bring them along too!

I think if if we all do something fun together, it might be a nice distraction from what might happen this month and....[And she brushes her hair behind her ear, trying not to be too sad about what happened to Diarmuid recently] well, what's been going on lately...

 [Colette does not get angry very often. However, even a person as sweet and gentle as her can have her buttons pressed. And Jason has managed it. The hand with the Exphere that she found in her mailbox....it could be a fake. Still, the fact that it's there has made her deadly afraid - afraid that something terrible has happened to one of her closest friends and that she was unable to stop it.]

Jason, how could you....what did you.......if that....what you gave me really belongs to Lloyd, then what have you done to him?! And why?!

Th-that thing on his hand....that's his Exsphere! It's dangerous to remove an Exsphere from someone who already has one! Who knows what could happen to him without it!

[She stops for a second, taking deep breaths to stop her voice from trembling. It's not working.]

P-please....just give it back to him. And whatever you're doing to him, just stop....

A lot has happened recently. I've been a little MIA from my usual daily activities, but I hope everyone has been alright. Right now, I think we all just need some rest. You'll get sick if you wear yourself out. [ Or worse - you'll be dead. ]

My name is Mami Tomoe, for those who don't know, and I hope we can get along well. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to speak with me. I'll do my best to help.

[ She smiles, and makes it seem like she's shutting the feed off, but... ]

( Locked to the Puella Magi cast. ) )

Hello, everyone. This is Colette here. I would just like to say to all those people who got turned into monsters.....I am sorry that it happened. I wish I could have done something to prevent it.

However, I would also like to say that it's not your fault what happened to you. I'm sure that you didn't mean to hurt anyone and if you knew that you were gonna be turned into monsters, you would have stopped it from happening. I'm sure the people you killed would have understood that too.

It's just like the experiments last April [Colette should very well know that herself - she died by Ryoji's hands.]. I know that you - or at least most of you - wouldn't act like that normally. So please don't blame yourselves for what happened. You are good people, really. I'm sure you are!

And Ruana, please.....stop doing such awful things to everyone.

[Feferi clears her throat, when the feed comes on. And she's grinning. The other noticeable thing about her? Her hair. She wears flowers in it pretty often, but now, the green leaves of the multicolored blossoms are more prominent than the actual flowers.]

I'm Feferi Peixes, and it's sing-along time, Tower. This one's straight from the files of protest songs that my ancestor - some of you remember the Condesce - well, she had a bunch of songs banned. Her heiresses were expected to know them, so they could have anyone singing them killed.

I think it's time to break that rule entirely.

[She clears her throat. Anyone who is at all familiar with musicals? You'll recognize the tune of 'Do You Hear the People Sing'. It crossed worlds.]

Do you hear the sufferers sing?
Singing the songs of angry men
It is a music of a race that won't be
Beaten down again

When the blood rushing through your veins
Echoes the honking of the horns

You'll know there's an end to all the pain
Come tomorrow morn

[No. Feferi pauses. The words...they need changing.]

I'm sorry. Let me just...this is gonna be off the cuff from now on, forgive me. But I can't just sing the version the Condesce banned. It's not right.

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
When all this glamour fades, is there a world you've longed to see?
Then join in the fight that will give us the right to be free!

Do you hear this Tower sing?
Singing a song that's writ in green
It is a music of a people
Stronger than you've ever seen

When the beating of your heart
Starts to be more than you can take
Show them you're strong, and play your part
I know you won't break!

Will you give all you can give,
So that the admins can't advance?
If we fall, or cry? We'll live -
it's up to you to take your chance!

Our blood, sweat, and tears will bring forth our resolve - that's our stance!

Do you hear this Tower sing?
Singing a song that's writ in green
It is a music of a people
Stronger than you've ever seen

When the beating of your heart
Starts to be more than you can take
Show them you're strong, and play your part
I know you won't break!

...for Sayaka. For everyone who's left this place. And for us.
[There's Papa Link, deathly serious with the Master Sword on his back. He's ready to kick some whale-sized ass.]

First thing must be first: Please remain calm.

I have just become aware that the Tower is under siege from a massive flying sea beast. There is no way to do an official role call of the Tower's residents, so I would suggest that you check with your friends and allies to ensure that they are safe and unharmed.

Those able to fight shall meet on the 81st floor where we can group ourselves make preparations for battle. Bring whatever weapons or armor you may have at your disposal. Surplus is good.

Those who do not wish to fight or are not able to should gather in a place with decent provisions that will last them, preferably the kitchens on the first floor.

I will remain on the network as long as possible.

Goddesses be with us.

If it matters to anyone, Homura Akemi is gone. She left a while ago, actually, but I haven't had time to announce it. I'm not sure if anyone was close to her, but in case you knew her...

[ Her voice trails off. There's a small pause afterwards. ]

I haven't been myself for the last week or so. I'd like to apologize for what happened. [ If anyone encountered her during the event, they should know what she's apologizing for. But she shouldn't have to, is what most people would think. But this is Mami we're talking about.

Her voice cracks as she continues: ]
If there's any way I can make it up to you, please don't hesitate to ask. Anyone, for that matter. I wish to help those in need.

I don't want to hurt anyone again.

[ The feed ends, without any other farewells. ]

[Lancer takes a deep breath before speaking.]

So I'm gonna be throwing my brother a birthday party. Who wants to come? And do any of you know what people do for birthday parties in this day and age?

[A pause.]

Oh yeah, Archer, stay away from the party if you know what's good for you.
12 April 2013 @ 11:11 pm
[The face on the camera is tired, the look in Diarmuid's eyes making it clear that the source of his weariness isn't physical, but mental and emotional as it so often has been since he arrived here.]

Has anyone see my brother?  Ah...you probaly know him better as Lancer.  I know he is still in the tower because his belongings are here and his name is still on the door, but I cannot find him anywhere and I have looked.  Those who know my skills know quickly I can do that.

I am worried because I just remembered something he said to Jason a while back.  He said he would volunteer for his next experiement and since this is Jason's month in charge and so many others have gone missing, I fear for what that means for him.

If anyone has seen him in the last few days, will you please let me know?

[Diarmuid pauses a moment, suddenly looking a lot more uneasy.]

Also, I want to apologize to all the people who were affected by my curse about week ago or got caught up in everything that was going on.  For those who don't know, I carry a curse that forces the women who see my face to fall in love with me.  It has been mostly inactive in this place but for some reason during the end of March and the beginning of April it flared back to life affecting both men and women.  Unfortunately, I have never been able to tell when it is active and when it is not so far too many people were affected before I knew what was going on.

I...do not know why this happened.  It has gone inactive again and I think by this time all those affected should have had the effects wear off.  If not, take the knowledge that your strange feelings are caused by something outside of you and focus on that...

[Suddenly, he turns away from the screen as if someone has tugged on his arm, which they have.  When he speaks his voice is quieter and directed at whoever is standing just off camera.]

Tony, just a moment, okay?  I will play with you then.

[Diarmuid turns back to the camera, quiet for a moment as if he is collecting his thoughts and then continues where he left off.]

Focusing on the fact that your feelings are not your own will help you overcome the effects sooner.  It is not something that worked that well during my first life, but there is a very strong pattern of it working here...

[There is a sudden scuffling behind Diarmuid and he is yanked away from the camera.  The scuffling continues as his voice drifts back toward the terminal.]

Tony!  Tony wait!  I'm not done...

Gah!  Does anyone know how to stop an alien abduction?


(OOC: Diarmuid's responses will come a few hours later when he has given Tony the attention that the little gray alien seems to want so badly.)

13 March 2013 @ 04:18 pm
... Okay, is it working? I've never used the audio function before, and I'm not good at computers, so—

[ She then coughs slightly, her voice energetic as she speaks in a loud and clear voice. It's obvious that she has something to say, and that it's important.

Or so she thinks, anyway. ]

Since everybody's been upset about the whole 'soul' thing and the 'my world might be destroyed' thing, I've been thinking that we need to celebrate and get our minds off of things! It'll be some stress reliever, that's for sure!

Anyway. If nothing happens, I'm planning on creating a new holiday, just for the whole Tower! I talked about this with Kyoko, and she said it was cool, but it wouldn't be fun if it was just the two of us celebrating it, right? That's why I'm inviting you, yeah, you, hearing this right now, to a Chocolate Day party!

If things go well, we'll probably be celebrating it next Friday, so you have a week to prepare and create anything chocolate related! That's right: we'll need chocolate decorations and chocolate related food. Man, I'd really go for a chocolate burger, you know...

And the mascot of this Chocolate Day is, of course, me, the magical, amazing, Mystic Maya! Oh, and if anyone has any complaints, just send it right over to my inbox, and I'll get to it right away! Anyway, any questions about this whole party would be really amazing, since I really want to make this the best party ever!

[The Cu Chulainn that appears in the feed is a far cry from his normal, cheerful self. His hair looks even more disheveled than it usually is. His eyes have narrowed into slits and vein are popping all over his face. And his spear is out for all to see.]


[He screams into the monitor, slamming his fist down on the keyboard and shaking the entire terminal.]


[He takes a deep breath before he screams again.]


[He knows. He knows that these are usually indicators that people had left the Tower for good. But he doesn't want to admit it. If he does, it means he's failed his Master again...]
24 November 2012 @ 06:50 pm
[The network has rebooted, and with it the translation systems--everything is in working order once more.

The following files have appeared, apparently by accident, on the network:]


[These files will be available for two hours before being deleted, although those with particularly good computer skills will be able to find the deleted files again.]
14 November 2012 @ 06:51 pm
 Um....hey, everyone. It's Colette here. How is everyone? To those whom I haven't seen in that costume incident - you're all okay, aren't you?

Also, can anybody tell me more about the people who run this place? Um...especially a man called Jason. [Whoever these people are, why are they torturing everyone? And how did they bring everyone to the Tower? And.....why? Colette needs to know, so she can find a way to stop them. :(.]
02 November 2012 @ 09:22 am
 [The moment the video turns on you see a blond head on the keyboard. The stool is knocked over in the background.]


[The head looks up and those who recognise it will see that it is Colette's. She rubs her head, trying to register what happened, and then..]

Oh, no! I haven't broken it, have I?!

[Looks like Colette has worked out how to turn on the video - not that she has noticed that it's on. Respond to her, guys?]
