[There's an audible chime, like a cheery voicemail tone, from every terminal simultaneously, before text appears on the screen.]

Good afternoon, Tower of Animus. My name is The Observer. I've got a special message for you today, direct from one of our beloved administrators. Please read, listen to, and memorize this message, and reproduce it wherever you can!

Cut for long but very important message. )

Wasn't that a special little message? Now, copy it down in your notes so you don't forget it! No matter whom you're allied with, be it Pandora, Ganondorf, your friends from home, or just yourself! There will be a test on this.

And the first section of the test is this - I want you to place at least one copy of this message somewhere in the tower. No points for hiding it! It has to be visible to everyone! In a few days I'll tell you all how you did, and I'll repeat this message for you lazy people who didn't see or hear this today.

That's all for now!

- The Observer

[All characters with mailboxes will find a copy of the message in their mail as of this evening.]
[Those who have been here quite a long time will recall that Lina went back home around November - however, going by her expression and the way she's acting, it doesn't seem like it's been that long. She may have a tendency toward burying her emotions, but she's not good enough to hide what would go along with eight months of solitude.]

Well, it's about time I got back here! I swear, another day back there, and I would have screamed.

[Well, she did after the first few days, but she's not gonna broadcast that in the least. She sighs, then folds her arms.]

So what'd I miss while I was gone?

Guess someone's hide is a little chapped over their fun being ruined, judging by the lack of food in the cafeteria. Not that those bar things were worth eating to start with... I'd say it's worth goin' without, though. To you guys that figured it out, good work. It's worth celebrating, 'cause it means we're not completely helpless here!
[Normally he'd actually draw better, but he's so freaking pissed and annoyed that you'll get this. Also his terrible handwriting.]

Yo! You guys all better listen up and read Senpai's post, cause this shit's important. I drew somethin' to give you an idea of what we're up against.

[He holds it up and...]

But uh, if you end up denyin' it....and I can't really blame you, we'll come help you deal with it. Got that?

I have taken whale meat from a flying space whale that spits monsters, glazed it with ketchup, and covered it with mashed potato frosting.

Somewhere, an actual patissier is crying.

Miss Lambda, your cake is done. I've checked and made sure that it isn't poisonous.
[Post is backdated to 2:00PM on the 14th.]

[There's a few seconds of dead air, as she goes over what she's going to say one last time.]

..So we're kinda in a crisis situation here!

Cuz of that, I figured we should... try to do a status report kind of thing! The top levels got totaled, and I know monsters had pretty much taken over a few other floors in mobs when I was last there.


[She gulps, obviously upset by having to ask this.]

I'd... like to ask you guys to report anyone you know is dead. Since the dorms are gone, I... don't think anyone's coming back that way for a while.

[Lina is on the network once again, this time with a proper question rather than overreacting over something.]

I know there's other magic-users here - I'm curious if any of you have tried to use your magic to get out of here. I've tried several times so far - different spells and locations, and only gotten my powers taken away and a lot of shocks for my trouble. [She scowls a bit, then huffs.] That said, trying to get out by force, even if it's magical seems to be a lost cause - so I'm wondering if anyone else might have some kind of alternative methods to consider using. Has anyone tried teleportation magic, for starters?
action prompt in a network post since i'm silly )

(actual network entry proper:)

so I just had the trippiest hibernation and it's not even the winter months yet, geez  ( ° へ° )
good morning tower
how long was I even out
everything didn't explode into awful in my absence right

[She's only half joking.]

anyway I actually have a genuine question drumroll please!

anyone got time to show me how to swing a sword and not be stupid about it?
just purely for hobby reasons ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I've been thinking about what to do about the giant spider everyone's been getting eaten by lately, and I think I came up with something. I'm going to ask the admins to get rid of it in the suggestion box. They keep saying they want to help us, so they should put their money where their mouth is.

To anyone that was wondering what it is, someone posted saying it was a lusus? Which is like a big animal thing that acts as a guardian for a troll. Not that that explains why it was eating people, which brings me around to--

Okay, I hardly know you, but Vriska Serket, what the heck where you thinking?! If it's your lusus, you can't exactly have missed what was going on! How could you just let it eat people? I don't care if they came back, it still ate them.

Are all of you that got attacked okay?
22 May 2012 @ 04:29 pm
Miss Lina was right! There is a big white spider! It ate me! But I'm back now! Everyone has to be very careful though because being eaten by spiders isn't very nice!

[He doesn't look to worse for wear though and he smiles.]

The first meeting for all the people littler than fourteen is going to be this afternoon, in room 3-01! Anyone little enough is welcome to come!
[Lina pops on the screen, and looks...confused and irritated more than anything.]

[Forward dated to the 13th.]

[The recording begins with dead air for a few tense seconds, before a young girl's voice picks up.]

..so the network's stopped streaming all of that stuff now. If I'd gotten on and it was still happening, I don't know what I'd do. [Ignoring that she'd seen some people that were in the labyrinth out and walking about the tower again herself, but that had been a very.. fuzzy week for her.]

--That's not the point of this, though. Um. Roxas, did I faint or something, the other day? And...

...Madoka. Are you really here? I'm.. if you are, I'm sorry for saying that you were just a dream...! Please, please really be here.

[Romeo appears on screen smiling, he is good at using the computers now and he pauses just a moment to make sure everything's switched on before he starts speaking.] This is a message for all the kids of the tower! There's quite a lot of us now and even though almost all the adults here are kind and nice and wont hurt us... [With obvious exceptions, Grand Highblood and Ghirahim even though he is sometimes nice...] The tower is still not a very nice place.

The Bad people are really really powerful and not even the adults can fight them, not even the adults who are really strong and powerful and have magic can fight them! So it can be a bit dangerous to be alone. So I think we should make a brotherhood! [A pause] A brother and sisterhood!

We would have meetings and a leader and all promise to look after each other. We can also do fun things as well! Just because the Bad People brought us here doesn't mean we can't have any fun!

[Another pause as he thinks some more] Lots of people have different ideas about what age kids are, but for our brother and sisterhood I think if you are fourteen or littler you can join!

We can meet in one of the bedrooms that no one lives in! But first I wanted to tell everyone to see who wanted to join!
[The video flicks on to a very perplexed-looking Lina with folded arms and a crossed leg, relaxing in her chair.]


People in charge, or people who've been here a while, I guess - is this some kind of person-copy-making place? 'Cause I keep seeing a bunch of guys that look like Link, and either I keep runnin' into the same blue-eyed and fuzzy-headed kid in different clothes, or there's more than one of him runnin' around.

[She pauses, then leans forward, giving the camera the stinkeye.]

So whoever's in charge - if you are makin' copies of people, don't copy me! Someone already tried that at home, twice, and it didn't go very well either time!

[The fact that her and the others kind of violently tampered with the equipment causing the copies to fail and the building to collapse goes unmentioned - nor the fact that the other was a polar opposite weepy pacifist made by a magic mirror.]

[Once the video feed starts, Lina stumbles back, hands on her head as raw energy seems to flow out around her, periodically lashing out at nothing in particular - there's a light windy sound from it. Eventually, she speaks.]

I... I need someone who can seal magic, and in a hurry if you don't mind!


[OOC: I haven't forgotten my old threads with Lina, just that a -lot- of stuff has come up that I wanna get her involved in. Still tagging the old threads, albeit somewhat slowly.]
03 March 2012 @ 03:27 am
[There's a video feed showing a very unsettled Lina. And she obviously does not like being unsettled like this, and it's a few moments before she can speak.]

...what...what the hell was all that? What kind of sick, twisted place have I been brought to?
