[the screen comes on, revealing a seventeen-year old with blond hair, who looks to be making an effort to remain serious and calm]

Um, hello. My name is Fate... Fate Testarossa Harlaown. It appears I've been brought to this place against my will, as I suspect all of you have as well... so I won't dwell on that matter.

[takes a deep breath, crossing her arms behind her back.]

I'd like to do whatever I can to help keep the peace around here, if I can. I would also like to volunteer to help any of the young people in the tower, if they so need it. I realize this is a difficult scenario for most people, so if I can provide support in any way possible, I'd like to provide it.

Finally... erm, it appears I have been placed in room 02-07... to anyone I might be staying with, I'd like to introduce myself, and express my hopes that we can live peacefully beside one another.

... That is all, I believe.

Is something going on? The readings are off.


12:30PM EST - The Tower is rattling.

12:45PM EST - The Tower is shaking more violently. Things are starting to move around, fall over, and fall off shelves. Something like loud, twisted whalesong can be heard.

12:55PM EST - The Tower is shaking violently; anything not bolted down will start falling over. A massive whale can be seen swimming up through the fog out the lower level windows--the fog cuts into its already bubbling, too-tight skin, and it trails thick black blood, but it isn't losing momentum and it's going to break through the fog barrier soon at the rate it's moving.

1:00PM EST - The whale reaches the top of the Tower and begins ramming into it. The tower creaks and screeches and groans; a bright white light circles the Tower as a barrier is revealed to cover the entire thing.

The whale rams it. It begins cracking.]

[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?
