[As the feed starts, everyone can see a familiar, or unfamiliar, boy, looking quite worried. For those who don't recognize him, he probably looks like some kind of hero wannabe, with the weird hair, goggles pulled over his eyes, and the cape worn around his shoulders. The reality is, he's just a weird soccer player.]

...good afternoon everyone, this is Kidou Yuuto. It looks as though I was sent home again... and I get the feeling I've been away for quite a while. This place seems different, though I can't put my finger on why. Would anyone like to explain what has happened since I was last here?

Yu Narukami is no longer in the Tower.

If anyone needs me for the rest of the day, they can find me on floor 48.

[And anyone who does look for him will find him wandering between two graves - Yu's and Shinjiro's. Two years ago... he still feels somewhat conflicted about being saved, but he's glad it happened.]

[Still, losing a friend and an enemy turned friend is difficult.]

For the purpose of this post, I will be referring to the first year mentioned here as Year X, the second as Year Y, and the current year as Year Z. I will also be referring to the months by their numerical place on the calendar rather than their names. This is so that I can ensure comprehension by a wide audience in the tower, no matter what year they are from or what the calendar of their world is like.

I'd like to call the attention of the following people:

● anyone who arrived in the tower earlier than this date exactly two years ago; the thirtieth day of Month 8 in Year X.
● anyone who participated in the experiment during Month 9 of Year X.
● anyone who played in the entirety of the game during Month 2 of Year Y.
● anyone who played in the entirety of the game during Month 6 of Year Y.
● anyone who participated in any experiment or game during Month 7 of Year Y.
● any competent hacker who feels a little helpful.

I am not asking anything dangerous of you. I simply have a little project I'm working on, and I require assistance with filling in some of the blanks.

[ ooc| muns can refer to the plot guide to see which months/events England is talking about! ]

[It's roughly mid-afternoon when Rick is revived--the first floor dorms will be alerted to his presence as he bursts out of 1-16 and runs to the bathrooms, then dry-heaves for an alarming amount of time.]

[He's not taken his death well. To be fair, it's not just dying that's troubling him. The administrators have removed the monster from his mind, but they didn't remove the memories of when it possessed him; he might not recall the exact words he used, or the motivations he had, but the pained expressions of those he targeted remain, and they are agonizing. If only Enoch had killed him for good! If only he never had to look at them again!]

[Of course the Tower won't go easy on him there. Dragging his feet, disheveled and shuddering with occasional sobs, Rick staggers to a terminal while the words are still fresh in his head and bashes out a quick notice: ]

This is Patrick Dawn. Some of you might have met me over the past few days...I need to let you know that the person you met wasn't me.

I'm a shapeshifter--I can take the forms of other creatures if I find them...in a certain condition. I had an idea to try and bond with a monster this way, and...well, it worked...but I couldn't control it. The monsters aren't what they appear to be. I'm not quite sure what they are, exactly...Please, if you have abilities similar to mine, don't follow my lead. For the amount of pain and suffering I've put everyone through, it's not worth it.

For the people that I encountered...I can't even begin to express how sorry I am. I would ask for your forgiveness, but this whole thing was my fault--I don't deserve your sympathies. If there's any possible way for me to make up for the horrible things I've said and done, I will be more than willing to follow through...but I also understand if that's an impossible request. I would take everything back if I could, but...I can't, so...I need to learn to live with my mistakes.

I know it's not enough...I'm so sorry.

[Rick immediately abandons the terminal after he posts to go hide in his room. He'll reply to people, but only after a few hours of collecting his thoughts again.]
[ There is a link to a video, followed by a couple line of texts, all anonymous. ]

Video: Subject 009, Experiment Fifteen

During our researches to find more information and truths about this tower, I managed to retrieve this video.

I do not trust I will be able to keep it forever, hence I need as many people as possible to watch it so the administrators cannot delete it from our minds. Please be warned that its content may be shocking.

((OOC: Doc won't reply to most comments, he' just sharing the video but feel free to use this post to react.))

Does anybody know what learned helplessness is? I tried looking in the library but all the books it looked like it would be in are gone.
08 July 2013 @ 01:26 pm
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.

[Romeo looks more serious than he usually does the rare times he's on the network. He should have done this days ago but things got scary and he had a lot to think about with everything that has happened. But he doesn't want to hold off any longer.]

Does anyone know a girl she has long brown hair and is maybe a bit bigger than me. She's got a friend that looks like. [Here he holds up a picture.]

Also a man with really long silver hair and a big sword. If you know them can you tell me where they live please.
30 April 2013 @ 06:46 pm
So, I need you to answer a question for me:

the pyramid on floor 92
the castle ruins on floor 73

which is the best for hide-and-seek?

And does anyone want to play said hide-and-seek with me?
22 January 2013 @ 09:45 pm
I'm going to miss being taller...

[She hesitates for a moment, looking like she wanted to say more... before she turned a brilliant shade of red and reached forward, fumbling with the computer.]

[Private: Yu and Rise]
[And she settles back once it's private to her brother and his girlfriend.]

U-um... onii-chan, Rise-chan... I need to ask you something...

[ seeing as how its body isn't actually made for speech, the voice in this post is telepathic projection and can easily be recognised as such. Bitties will just receive the post in their heads thanks to Kyuubey's agreement with the bitty brigade to provide eternal hivemind reception.


Greetings! My name is Kyuubey. I've been here for some time now, but I need advice from you all... Well, primarily from the humans amongst you. Namely, what should my purpose be in this universe, when my job was to save mine? If I am the result of a failed line of causality, and this a place that collects the detritus from inadequate realities, what is the purpose of our continued existence? We cannot cease to exist from our own desire, which would imply that we are meant to be, but can anyone claim to have contributed something to this reality? Does anyone believe they have a future, or any potential whatsoever, as long as they exist in this tower?

I'm asking only because as unbalanced, emotional species, you are much more likely to produce a rationale for your existence! The logical answer - that we have no future and no present - doesn't really work, does it? We're gonna keep going anyway... I thought I'd find out what you thought, and see if there was something I can do.

Well, it doesn't matter much. Since I have as little meaning here as you guys, let's all be friends!

[It had taken awhile, but Tohko had finally managed to get everything made and had fond out just how to get the video settings to work. She'll be standing there, smiling, with a table behind her and a pile of presents on it..as well as a basket of fruit. A small mailbox sat on the corner of the table, separate from everything else.]

Good morning! Would the following people please come to the third floor: Rei, Romeo, Saber, Wilhelm, Tetra, France, Prussia, Lancer, 'Azazello'-aka The Brown Testament, and 'Behemoth'-aka The other Testament.

It may be a little late, but I still want to hand you guys Christmas presents, so please do show up!

[Filtered to Rei Ayanami and Rise Kujikawa]

Oh..and would Rei and Rise please meet me here as well, together? There's something I want to ask the both of you.

we're going to get sick

[Now he's going to just. Go and try to wrap himself in whatever material he can find that's decently warm.]

Good evening everyone. I need to apologize to a few people, and since I haven't been able to run into them, hopefully they'll be able to see this text.

Nesir: I do admit that I was in the wrong when I killed you. It was this darn costume. It's been messing with me, and for those first couple of days, I didn't realize that it was the costume controlling me. I am sorry. However, I am also willing to bargain. I have eighteen pieces of candy on me right now. I am willing to exchange these with you for the belongings you stole from me especially Similar to The Sky. That book is precious to me and I want it back.

Kidou: I'm terribly, terribly sorry for what I said and did to you. You were under your costume's influence too, and I said and did some horribly cruel things to you. I hope you can forgive me. If there's anything I can help you with, please, let me know.

Ganondorf/Ganondork: I do apologize for trying to kill you, but know that I am someone! I am Tohko Amano, the book girl, and no matter how much power you have, your love and knowledge of books shall never exceed mine!

Romeo: I apologize for ripping out your heart. That was the costume again, and I am truly sorry. However, I think you owe me an apology too, as you also attacked me for no reason at all.

Also, since this month has been rather rough, I will be whipping up some cakes and other sweets for people to eat on the 31st! Anyone is allowed to come, eat, and cheer up. However, there are some rules. No killing each other and no making a mess. Also, no alcohol, if you were planning on bringing that in somehow.
05 October 2012 @ 12:51 am
I know I haven't been up and around much lately but now that it's October (again), I suppose a bit of Halloween celebration is in order. Now, since our captors have been kind enough to provide a surplus of pumpkins, would anyone like to join me in carving some Jack-o'-lanterns?
01 September 2012 @ 02:27 am
If you're fourteen or under, we're going to have a training session on the meadow level on floor twenty five tomorrow afternoon.

If you haven't been to one of our meetings yet you can still come.

If you're fifteen or over I guess you can come too, if you want to help train some people.

[Filtered to Strega;]

This is going to sound really weird, but my Persona changed. I don't have Nemesis anymore.

[Filtered to Minako]

Your Ken's Persona changed too, didn't it?
We have taken the liberty of doing some research into the Tower's history and past trends, in hopes of uncovering something about the way this place operates, or solving one of the many mysteries that surrounds it. It would greatly benefit us if you could lend your assistance and help us with our research; the more people that answer the better, as it gives us more data to work with.

We understand that someone's probably sick of these kind of forms, questions and questionnaires, but we've done our best to compile the data from the past ones and hopefully not make it too repetitive, and get to the heart of the matter:

cut for length )

In addition, we have a few more gaps we'd like to fill about the earlier days of the Tower, but it seems that many of the people that were here at the beginning have disappeared. For those that were here in the very early days, we have a few questions about the environment-- nothing too invasive. Your cooperation would be invaluable.

Lastly, we have one more question to posit, both for discussion and for the sake of our curiosity and research; how do souls work in your world? If you have information on how your own soul specifically works and are willing to share it, this would help us a lot.

For any of these queries, if you feel more comfortable locking your answer, this is perfectly acceptable and we will take steps to make sure it is as private as possible. Anonymous posting may also be used if you're dubious as to the functionality of the lock system.

[Romeo appears on camera with his usual smile. Nothing can keep him down for long and he is back to keeping his spirits up and getting on with life.] Hello everyone it's Romeo again. We're going to have another meeting for the people littler than fourteen!

Even if you didn't come to the last one you can come to this one! It's going to be in room five, thirteen because no one lives there! It will start after lunch.

[He grins again.]

((ooc:the meeting is here))
