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.]

[Chidori's expression is darker than usual, fingers toying idly with the broken headphones clipped loosely to one side of her dress.]

I do hope when the time comes that whichever of you sent me this will understand that at this point, it's quite difficult not to make the things that will happen to you as heinous as is within our collective ability. After all, you seem quite intent on making it personal with every person in the tower.

[...Woooow there's a lot of posts on the network today. A lot of people sound really worried about a lot of crazy-sounding things...but what she's got to say doesn't sound that crazy, all things considered.

Worried as she is, Rise is still an idol at heart, and she smiles for the camera like a movie star.]

Hi hi! Rise Kujikawa here, bringing you all an important message!

I know things are kinda crazy today, and lots of people are saying really weird stuff, buuuut this is a little different, because this one's not that unbelievable.

So everyone, be really careful if you're eating the cafeteria food! There might be poisonous plants in it...and honestly, in a place like this, I'd say you're better off safe than sorry.

Even if it's not true, I don't think we should risk it, guys... So...who wants to go hunting and who wants to help me see what we can find to make in the kitchen? We should meet up for meals somewhere at least twice a day, and maybe we could invite more people, too.

[EDIT: brief additional video, filtered to the same crew as above]

Senpai says to meet up in the cafeteria, and we'll decide where to go from there!

Greetings, my name is Naoya Toudou.

I was one of the affected, and for that I apologize if we met during this time. I was fully aware of what had been done to me but unable to stop myself and my actions, except for parts of complete clearness.

[Like that time when he was able to stop himself and Chidori and...]


However, that is not why I am posting currently.

For those that don't know me, I patrol at nights in the tower with a few others. This was started by Minami Arisato, a previous resident of the Tower.

I realize that at a time like this, it may almost seem trivial, but I will continue to do so to ensure the safety of others. If you are interested in joining me, please understand that this is extremely dangerous, especially with the tower having so many floors now, but having more numbers would be appreciated. If we end up being enough, we can start a rotation between ourselves.

Moreover, if for any reason you need to be in the tower at night and require assistance against the monsters, I am available for your aid as well.

... Well, I guess that wasn't all bad. At least I know that I grow up to be pretty tall.

Aside from the idea of being trapped in this place for ten years, that was kind of fun.

Also, Chidori - if you see this post, I need to talk to you.

A 'body switch'? Really?

...Not to raise the alarms, but does anyone else have the sinking suspicion that this is only just beginning and that it could get worse? I mean, this is Jason we're likely talking about, here.

If there's anything those who've been here a while know it's that anything Jason does while in charge usually means it is not going to end well for any of us.

[And a bit later.]

Oh, and investigation team? That is not the "leader" you are looking for... ಠ_ಠ

[Yep. Still making references regardless of bodies.]

[The feed flickers later on in the morning in midst of the creeping fog settling within the lower levels (for now) of the tower before a clear voice speaks through. Despite the growing difficulty to see through it, he seems to have no trouble?]

Everyone, stay calm and listen. If my hunch is right, this fog is different from the kind that lingers outside this tower and if that's the case, there are some things you should know about it. You see... this fog is similar to the fog in a world I know.

For those who can't read well, I'll read it aloud... but the basics will be here in text.

[He pauses before speaking again, having only stopped to compose himself.]

[He pauses again before nodding to the screen.]

If any of you need any help for however long this lasts, the Investigation Team will be going around helping to tame any berserk Shadows that manifest. You'll be able to tell us apart from others because we don't have problems seeing through it for one reason or another.... usually special glasses.

[lol whut? ...For some reason, it looks like he's serious. He grows even more serious after this last pause and he filters the feed to his team and the others who know the power of Persona.]

This is going to bring back a lot of memories...

as aleph said, now's not the time to question what's happening. everyone get to the lower levels asap. help those you can. be prepared to fight if necessary.
15 May 2012 @ 01:23 pm

...Er... This is how you use it right? Well, it certainly looks like it's recording...

Erm, anyways, hi, I have some questions if you guys don't mind?

Is it true that our worlds' destroyed like the letter says? I mean, it sounds a bit morbid for a welcoming letter, don't you think? And just how large is this tower anyways?

That's all for now, I guess and... oh, right! My name is Makoto Naegi, in case you guys needed it.

[There are a few more messages that cross the line completely into incoherence, before finally:]

swithcign to video

[The feed flickers on, and-- yes, that most certainly is England. Or it looks sort of like him for all of two seconds before he doubles over with his head in his hands, blue and red psionic sparks crackling over his body as it shifts -- struggling between something like a tortoise shell and a werewolf, or something vaguely structured similarly to one. Spines ripple beneath his flesh and a few manage to extend outwards, easily tearing through his shirt (or what's left of it -- he's clearly been fighting with his body for quite a while now). His skin tightens over his bones and almost deadens in appearance before England finally reigns the shifting in for a moment.

He's still clutching his head with one hand, though the other has moved to his chest. Bruises show on his neck where it appears someone -- or something -- has tried to strangle him. Along with the bolts of psionic energy, wisps of fox fire occasionally burst into existence in the air around him, usually when he chokes on his own breath. With a strangled noise of pain, books come flying off the shelves behind him, thudding into a surface off-screen.

Finally, he finds it in himself to look into the camera. His eyes flicker with the alternating colours of the Vision Twofold, and at a close look, the multiple pupils of the Vision Eightfold can be found in the left eye whenever it flickers blue. His voice is hoarse when he speaks.]

Urgent assistance. Please.

[ ooc: a list of the competitors in the labyrinth, along with their powers, can be found here. as of now, it's still in-progress, but if your character was in the labyrinth and i have missed them, or the powers listed are inaccurate, please tell me so i can change it! c: also, THERE IS A REAL CHANCE THAT YOUR CHARACTER COULD GET INJURED IF THEY APPROACH ENGLAND. please be careful. ]

[The nightmares that had plagued him the last few days seemed to have stopped. His Persona powers had returned as well. This did make him more eager to fix his sword that was still in pieces, and unable to wield it himself, he turned to the tower for help.

The only problem, then, was understanding this complicated computer system. He could understand it in due time, of course, after all he went into programming for a reason, but he also came from 1996, an age where the internet was still unused to such a degree of the future his new friends talked to him about. Even just pressing the right buttons seemed like a new experience. He tilted his head, stroking his chin. What were all these HTML codes? Added in new versions? Did he really need to pick a color for the text he was writing? Well, when in Rome..or in the Tower...he didn't notice that he had accidentally turned on the video, however. Behold, a teenager, typing.]

Good evening.

My name is Naoya Toudou. If you find this hard to pronounce, a few American friends have nicknamed me 'Neo'.

It seems those of us who sponsored those stuck in the maze were struck with a series of nightmares. I was one of those affected. Moreover, those in the maze were inflicted with terrible punishments.

This Tower is trying to toy with us. Do not let it win.

I also have a request. I have a sword from my World, and would like to know if anyone is skilled enough to repair it. Thank you.

[If you continued to watch, you might realize that the video went on for a few minutes more, as he moved to his bed, maliciously putting in the proper clips for his gun before cranking it and turning on the safety mode. It was only when that time was up did he return, and realizing what he had done, stuck out his lips in mild annoyance, closing it.]
