It has concerned me greatly of late as to what "Losing your Soul to the Tower of Animus" may mean. And I am afraid we may be witnessing the first symptoms of such a loss...

[ It's to say the ridiculous amounts of sheer foolishness that can be witnessed all around the tower, especially as of late. It is the first time since May that Gandalf posts something on the network- Nothing surprising considering his dislike of such communication means. But here and now, sending this message is absolutely necessary. ]

Throw yourselves out of the tower next time and rid us of your stupidity )

Rolling on the ground is really easily compared to balancing in an anti-gravity field.

I as Roxas hereby decline any and all possession of Ice Cream forevermore, as I've decided it's not worth it.

Thank you for your time.

Just so everyone knows, skateboarding is totally harder than stupid, magically-gravity-defying glider things.

Also I hereby donate all my icecream I will ever get to my best friend ever Roxas.

You may now go about your daily routines as normal. Thank you.

[...nope. Not even trying.]


[Really not trying at all.]

Okay, guys, I've given this request thing some thought.

[Quite a bit, since he's been quiet for quite a while, and hasn't been doing much of anything-]

After Jason gave Sayaka, Ven, and I our matching set of scalpel wounds, I realized that we may have actually irritated him, even if only a little bit. And if this is his month, then next month he theoretically won't be handling requests.

[A pause.]

So, who wants to join in flooding the request box? If a bunch of people request for him to get punched on a month that isn't his, we might get somewhere. I kinda doubt it, but I have to try.

'Course, if you request this, you might wake up with a hand stab- or worse, if he somehow hijacks the situation. Which he probably will. Just, be ready for potential pain, okay?

[[OOC: Here is a convenient link to the IC request box!]]
Hey guys.

Betting it's a Jason month this time.

Mostly 'cuz I woke up with a note pinned to my hand with a scalpel.

So if you were planning on anything that isn't the tower being more awful, sorry, you're gonna have to put that on hold.

That's pretty much all I got to say. Peace.

Hello. Since I'm certain many of you are busy or predisposed searching for the people who were likely abducted for another experiment, I'll try to be short with this.

A certain FAQ has been forwarded into my care recently from the old owner. If you are new here, I'd really like to take the time to suggest you please read it, even if it's gotten a bit large, because this is very important for those of us who happen to be trying to simply live here, and doubly so for those who don't know what floor is dangerous or what goes on here. AKA you newbies.

I have but one simple request: Tell me what would you like me to add to this, if anything. Another one, if you're not busy: would you mind giving me some questions that you hear frequently? I'm considering adding a Q&A about what we know/don't know/what to do and not to do, but I'm not certain if it's necessary or not.

That's all, really; I want to do my best to make sure this is as well-maintained as the original author intended.

[ ooc: As is obvious any replies from Minato here will be COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS and untraceable. He will only answer in text, regardless of if voice/video is used. Some replies may come from my alt account too. Just an FYI. ]

[Anyone tuning in today would find a video feed of Ven sitting in front of the computer, grinning a bit more devilishly than he usually did, and waving a green sharpie around bit as he held it up in his hand.]

So you know those clear-collared guys that run around taking care of this place? Turns out you can basically draw all over them as much as you want without them noticing or even caring! You can write anything you want on them and they'll just keep going about their day as if nothing happened!

[There was the distinct view of Roxas and Sayaka lingering and high-fiving in the background.]

Happy Anniversary~!

It has come to my attention that many people in this tower are without sufficient supplies of clothing, or have had existing supplies damaged through tower-related incidents. Seeing as our administrators are not exactly of the charitable sort, acquiring more is no easy task if you don't have the means to make it yourself.

The case is similar with food. I'm sure most of you are aware of the questionable status of many of the menu items this month. We are being fed things that are outright poisonous and being made to put ourselves in danger to trade for anything better.

I know that there are those among us who are capable of sewing and farming. I'd like to organise a go-to group to help the ones who are not capable.

The fifteenth floor contains a workshop where clothing can be made. I, personally, am willing to construct attire and give sewing lessons to anyone who wishes to learn. If you are interested in the sewing group, please reply with your name and what you're interested in. You can merely make clothes, or you can offer lessons, as well. Both volunteers and people who require clothing are welcome to make themselves known.

The thirty-second and thirty-third floors are both valuable resources for food. Floor thirty-two contains a forest. It seems completely on the level, from my investigation. There are normal, edible plants and animals that aren't mutated or monstrous. Of course, I have discovered that, like any other normal forest, there are also poisonous plants. However, these are fairly common Earth plants, so they can be identified if you're well-versed in wilderness survival knowledge.

Floor thirty-three has farmland. There are seeds in the barn on this floor, and I imagine you could also plant the seeds from anything you forage on floor thirty-two. Other people use this floor, so we must be conscious of their areas. But I think we can manage a small collective of farming efforts to give people food that won't kill them. I'm hoping that measures against theft won't be necessary, but if it comes to that, I'm willing to organise a guard duty, as well. For the time being, the honour system should serve well enough, seeing as there isn't yet anything to steal.

If you want to contribute to the food group, reply with your name and whether you hunt, gather, or farm. Please also state if you're willing to do more than one thing. For now, I'd like it if only volunteers for the food effort respond for this.

Once this post has run its course, I shall put up a list of people in each group, so that they may be contacted by people who need assistance in these fields. If you have any ideas as to how this little organisation should be run, please do not hesitate to bring them up to me.

My name is England, and I am often found in either room 1-20 or room 2-16. You may also know me as "Arthur Kirkland". Feel free to refer to me by either of these names. For those who are curious (and to save myself explaining it more than once), I am indeed the country of England. Or at least a humanoid representation of everything it is.

If that confuses you, I'd suggest just calling me Arthur.

I'm open to any other questions you may have regarding how the tower is run, but please do try not to get too off-topic.

[ Kairi's used to winding up in different worlds, but something about this just seemed off. She couldn't find hide nor hair of Tifa and Aerith, much less Riku and Sora, and that worried her. Were they taken from right under her nose or no?

She had so many questions, but didn't know if she had the time for them. However, she needs to get to the bottom of this to go home. ]

Ah, I hope I'm using this right...

For those who might not know me, I'm Kairi and...I'm not really sure why I'm here, so information on my surroundings would be more than helpful. Thank you for your help.

Also, if anyone has seen two women who go by the names Tifa Lockhart and Aerith Gainsborough, could you let me know where they are? More importantly, if anyone knows where two others - boys who go by the names Riku and Sora, that would be extremely helpful. I'll try my best to repay you, too.

Now how do you turn-- [ The feed goes silent after that. ]

( OOC: You can also bug her here! )
[Oh dear. Sora is posting to the network again. Is this going to be as bad as last time? Will there be beeps, error messages, angry flashing signs, Tron-world adventures?

...nope! There's just a kid using the video function. Apparently all of those computer-using lessons really have done him a world of good.]

Okay, so, I've been thinking about something. There are a lot of people in this tower from my world. In fact, there are so many of us that it's hard to keep track of all of you! And, um, since I haven't talked to all of you in awhile, I was thinking that maybe we should meet up somewhere tomorrow. Maybe the meadow, since that worked pretty well when we had that bonfire awhile back. What do you guys think?

...oh, and I don't just mean people I know, either! If anyone from...[He can't just say a name; his world is made up of a lot of other worlds, but they aren't connected to the worlds of everyone here. So how does he describe it? He has to take a second to think it over, before one similarity finally does come to him-]...from a world where the Keyblade exists sees this and wants to come, they should! I'll try to bring some food or something, too.

[Is that it? Nope! He has a question for the Tower at large, too.]

Also, um...did anyone else spend all of last month sleeping? Or was that just me?

[Yes, this is a genuine, serious question, about a thing that actually happened.]
11 July 2012 @ 05:28 pm
[After the...last time he was on the network, Roxas isn't exactly eager to stick his face on it again. But he still wanted to offer something, so he accepted voice begrudgingly. There was an awkward few seconds of silence before he began speaking.]

Uh, hey. It's Roxas. I just wanted to ask something to everyone at large...

[A pause, and he gave a loud sigh.]

I've been keeping a journal, and I realized I've almost been here for a year. Who else is around who's been here that long? I'm...thinking of making a cake.

[Okay, so that was partially sarcasm, but-]

At least that way, we'll have something positive for the occasion, instead of just the usual stuff. I just, need help making it. I've never made a cake before.

[...of course, he also was planning on trying to shove it in the suggestion box, or the red-collar elevator, or something...but there wasn't a need to mention that part out loud.]

This post, if people would like to utilize it, can be used to quickly meet up with those you were separated or stranded from during the previous month, as well as ensuring one another of your safety.

This will help ensure that we have one place to check for such correspondences, and will not flood the network with an overabundance of the same sentiment.

You're free to utilize your own means, of course- I simply figured this would be a useful tool, after all that has happened.
[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.
12 February 2012 @ 04:51 pm
[People who have talked to L before might recognize the voice, but it sounds softer, more weary, less self-assured.]

I have two questions. If you're willing to cooperate, you can answer either of them, or both.

The first: What were you doing in the moments just prior to waking up here?
The second: Has anyone been sent back to where they came from more than once?

whys, wherefores, and breakfast time )
30 November 2011 @ 02:26 pm
thank you for your patience
I have taken control of the tower
it was difficult but that's okay
I'll start sending people home in an hour
you should say goodbyes before then

Um, hello everyone. [Roxas seemed a bit rigid, making a network post again within such a short block of time...but he'd been spending a lot more time in the library as sort of a result of it.]

I have a bit of a request. [He paused, fidgeting with his colored strings on his fingers, before making a weird, dismissive handwave to his own fussing.] After what occurred with the network a few days ago, I'm looking for volunteers of a sort- hackers, or people willing to monitor the network. If anything of that sort happens again, I want to be able to try and trace it, or at the very least, watch the network from multiple consoles to see if there's any variation. We need to document this, in case anything else happens.

[An awkward pause.] I'm not trying to be a leader or anything, but...
28 November 2011 @ 04:04 pm
So... my world's been destroyed. Yeah, not buying it. It's been tried before, by bigger and, well, probably better than whoever's behind this. In fact, I was sort of in the middle of the whole preventing the apolocypse game show right before I got zapped here, so if I could pretty please go back to that...?

Yeah, didn't think that would work. Well. Hi, everyone? I'm Willow Rosenberg, witch extraordinaire. At least they were nice enough to send me here with clothes and magic supplies. No way am I staying in the white phallus suit.

If someone could fill me in on the features that are not as advertised, I'd appreciate it. I'm sure there's all sorts of stuff to know about this place.

A tour might be nice, too. This is a lotta floors.
26 November 2011 @ 09:45 pm
"I see you"? Some kid crying for their mom? What the hell is this, some kind of twisted game of peek-a-boo?

And who the hell is Ruana?
