Something Old, Something New

▼ Something Old, Something New (13th hour & arrival log)
 
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: The news two weeks
Summary: This is both a Newcomer log AND a General 13th hour log
Warnings: That depends who is there

▼ When it is darkest, men see the stars...(13th hour)
 
The night sky once again turned red as the 13th hour hit the city. By now it was almost too easy to accept it. The moon (or what was of it up there) shone, affecting the monster population in subtle ways.

By now, even the strange events which had happened almost seemed a little too common. The pulls from a new building, or the odd creatures that showed up and increased the population for that hour gave rise to new oppertunities; both good and bad.

To keep the population safe, the mayor had asked the city to stay inside that night and let the city police and visitors do their job, despite the dividing population on this issue. For the most part, there wouldn't be much resistance.

Each night, the sky was always filled with at least one or two signs of something new, and people were ushered inside buildings as much as possible.

Who knew. Maybe tonight you'd get lucky.

▼ Ode of the Newcomer
 
You're not in your homeworld anymore. That much is evident. So how do you feel? Happy? Sad? Troubled? A little of all three? No matter what, the memories of a butterfly man named Philemon are fading like a dream; you'll remember the details, but perhaps not everything he has said. What time you showed here seems to be as random as everything else; if you were lucky it was during the day, if not, well the 13th hour was rather dangerous. Fortunately, there was a high chance you'd be spotted quickly.

...hopefull anyway.

There is one word that stays with you, however.

Persona.

So...here to save the city, huh? First you'll need to find out more information. And who knows, maybe a familiar face or two...

▼ Extra Long OOC Blurb
 
[(Make sure you read it!) This is a dual log, both 13th hour, or newcomer posts (we're testing it out to see this works well or not.)

This will be up to you on what you want to do; start a new post where you can character's name and OPEN and write the days they'll be wandering during the 13th hour.

If you are a newcomer, write OPEN and what hour they arrived. It can be the 13th hour if you want too!

Join other people's post, do some exploration, post them fighting monsters and just have some fun leveling up / interacting! For this log, you can level up persona, but not in the same thread and the same day, IC-wise. Please do not abuse this. The conditions is that the fighting must happen on different days. The threads should be long enough that an attack is possible and shouldn't just be a few comments just for the sake of leveling up (Ie, we want effort in them, as much as you would with a normal log.).

If you submitted a building and it was accepted, feel free to start a post with them discovering it! The original owners who submitted will be the first to see them, due to a strange pull that made they feel like they NEEDED to go to that area. What they do with this information is up to them; they can contact others in their group, start exploring by themselves or allow the thread to be open for others to come in with them...it's all up to you. That next morning, the government will be coming over to analyze them (that will be done offscreen, however).

FOR THE CREATURES 1) The creatures have to be in the Beastary for you to use them. You don't need to use creatures from your own home worlds either, as long as someone's put in a creature in there! Also, make sure your characters could logically take on the creatures you pick let's not have them take down a giant creature when they couldn't normally.]


DON'T FORGET TO TAG WITH YOUR CHARACTER'S NAME PLEASE.

On the streets is a rather disheveled man - from a distance, he seems nicely dressed, but up close, one can tell his clothes have seen better days. He's also rather unsettled.

Sure, being put into weird situations wasn't anything new - Stacy sent the crew on weird missions all the time! But there was usually, y'know. Warning. And the missions had become less frequent since they'd booted the Daligig off of Stacy. Either way, he was in some section of city he didn't recognize. It was possible that he could be on the City level... Maybe Stacy was glitching out or something.

Once he gets to a safe place, he pulls out what looks like some sort of comm device to talk into it. "This is Shoutarou - if anyone can hear me, I think I've woke up in some unexplored part of the City. There's monsters all over the place, the sky's red, and I don't recognize anything nearby...!"

Of course, there's no signal. No answer.

"Damn it...!"
electricyousei: (Ruri stare)

[personal profile] electricyousei 2013-03-04 11:22 am (UTC)(link)
From behind him there is a quiet deadpan voice.

"I can hear you, but if you are trying to use a specific com device, you may be out of range of the main system. Though its rather dangerous right now and perhaps getting somewhere safe would be a better first step."
thisclinchesit: (Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-05 10:14 am (UTC)(link)
"If I'm on the ship, though, they should reach the others just fine, provided there's nothing actively blocking the signal--" Shoutarou turns around, then leans back for just a moment before making a confused face. "Just who are you, young lady? I don't think I've seen you around before."
electricyousei: (Ruri stare)

[personal profile] electricyousei 2013-03-05 11:10 am (UTC)(link)
"You aren't on a ship though. Not as far as I know. I know where a ship is if you really want to be on one, but the captain isn't the kind to take people off the street immediately."

She tilts her head a bit and blinks.

"I'm Ruri. Hoshino Ruri. According to my device you are the new one here, but, time gets odd sometimes so that may not be completely correct."
thisclinchesit: (Get out of my office.)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-08 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
"Eh...?" Shoutarou stares at Ruri for a moment before making a face. "New here? This isn't the Transmigration 9?" He looks down at his omnicomm, and feels a faint chill go down his spine. "That could explain the lack of reception, but..."

It could also explain the weird dream, but he'd rather not think about that. However, he's probably going to have to.
electricyousei: (nani naze)

I'm so sorry for the delay

[personal profile] electricyousei 2013-03-21 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
"I've never heard of that ship, but you are no longer on it. This is Earth, or at least an Earth."
thisclinchesit: (Ponderous. Frickin' ponderous.)

Likewise on my part.

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-04-14 06:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"An Earth," he repeats, pocketing the non-functional communicator while looking at the situation he's fallen into. He draws in a long breath, then huffs it out in a sigh. "Looks like one hell of an Earth," he adds, making a vague gesture toward the red sky.
electricyousei: (SD Ruri2)

[personal profile] electricyousei 2013-04-16 10:26 am (UTC)(link)
"It looks like there have been some significant strangeness so it may not be Earth at its best."
thisclinchesit: (Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-04-21 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, considering the last I knew of Earth - several Earths, anyway - was that they had been destroyed, I'll call this an improvement from what I knew. Any clue what's causing the whole red sky thing?"

"Seems like a bad time to be out and about. This is the youkai's time, after all."

You're not sure where that voice came from, exactly, but he sounds close by whereever he is.
thisclinchesit: (Ponderous. Frickin' ponderous.)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-05 10:20 am (UTC)(link)
"Hmm? Who said that?"

While he's not sure where that came from, Shoutarou does turn to start looking. "Is that what the monsters around here are?"
gegege_no_ge: (Default)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-05 06:50 pm (UTC)(link)
"It's what they used to be called. Ever since everything went bad, though, people have started referring to them as 'demons.' Erroneously, in several cases."

If Shoutarou looks up, there's a boy casually sitting on a windowsill, his hair obscuring one side of his face entirely. He doesn't seem at all bothered by his surroundings.
thisclinchesit: (Here comes the plot.)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-08 11:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Shoutarou does indeed look up, and raises an eyebrow at Kitaro. Normally he'd wonder what a kid's doing out at such a dangerous time, but after meeting some rather extraordinary kids prior, he's more curious about the situation. "Just how did 'everything go bad'? And just what have I stumbled into...?"
gegege_no_ge: (gee lemme think about that one)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-12 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Kitaro smiles, a spooky, sardonic sort of smile. "Does it matter? Things are bad. Things will probably get worse still. I suppose this was inevitable on some level."

He twiddles his thumbs. "You must be one of the outsiders. Like we needed more of them.

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-16 09:12 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah, it matters - kinda helps if you know just how bad a situation is before the bulk of it hits, y'know? Finding out how it got that way is one way to know - you gonna give me something to work with here, kid?"

The 'outsiders' comment gets a raise of the eyebrow. "Outsider?"
gegege_no_ge: (gee lemme think about that one)

[personal profile] gegege_no_ge 2013-03-18 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
"Hmmm... nah. Humans need more mystery in their lives anyway." Wow, what a jerk.

Kitaro snorts. "You're not from this world, right? You don't carry yourself like someone who's familiar with where they are. I've heard this place attracts them by the buckets lately."
thisclinchesit: (Okay okay just shut up)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-04-14 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
"Tch, damn kids don't know how to respect their elders," he mutters and huffs. Guess he'll have to find out how things have 'gone bad' on his own. Never any rest these days, it seems.

"Seems to be the case, because this sure doesn't look like where I came from."

"You may want to try the COMP Network. You'll actually get an answer that way."

There's a man in a long black coat looking at Shoutarou through the viewfinder of his bright pink camera. Tsukasa had gone out in order to do a bit of hands-on training with Rudra, but making sure that new arrivals weren't killed due to poor timing was a bit of a higher priority.
thisclinchesit: (Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-05 10:25 am (UTC)(link)
"Eh...?" The voice makes Shou stop fiddling with the Omnicomm and turn to face where it came from. That camera, that face - there's no mistake. "Decade? When did you show up here?" He looks the other fellow over, obviously confused. "Did you just waltz through one of those screen things, or did you come out of the pods...?"

[personal profile] endless_journey 2013-03-05 06:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Well. Moonlight Madness had gotten him used to being recognized by people that he'd never met before, but those people a) were generally teenage girls and middle-aged mothers and b) didn't know that he was Decade. So that left one type of person that Shoutarou could be.

"I take it that you're a Rider, then." He raises a brow at his questions. "I don't have any active control over those, as far as I know. And pods? I knew that you were lost, but where exactly do you think you are?"

thisclinchesit: (THIS ISN'T MY TRUMP CARD D:)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-08 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Thankfully, Shoutarou's taste in literature involves a different kind of dicks.

"Well, yeah - it's been a long while, but we crossed paths a couple of times," he answers, then makes a face of frustrated confusion. "I'm pretty sure I'm on the Transmigration 9. At least, I thought so." As he responds, he frowns at his omnicomm.

[personal profile] endless_journey 2013-03-09 12:17 am (UTC)(link)
"Did we now? I guess you weren't as memorable to me as I was to you." He shrugs theatrically. "It should be obvious at this point, but you aren't anymore. Welcome to Hinoto-Ri, the City of Mysteries. You showed up at a bad time. Most guests don't arrive during the 13th Hour."
thisclinchesit: (WHY YOU LITTLE PUNK)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-09 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
"What?!" Shou's expression falls into irritation, and he turns on Tsukasa. "My partner and I help you out twice, and you up and forget us?!" Excuse him while he overreacts, as he does take this Riders-help-each-other-out thing pretty seriously...

[personal profile] endless_journey 2013-03-09 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes." Tsukasa gives him a bland look before going back to his camera and taking a picture. The lighting may be bad, but an overreacting Shoutarou already seems like a photo worth keeping. "You overestimate your own importance. Riders aren't rare or unique. You and your partner are just two among many. I can't be expected to remember every Rider that I help or that helps me."
thisclinchesit: (Okay okay just shut up)

[personal profile] thisclinchesit 2013-03-09 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
Tsukasa's photography skills (or lack thereof) should be adequate enough to capture one of Shou's ridiculous faces, or at least manage to make it even more entertaining.

Shou, meanwhile, has stowed away the non-functional omnicomm and has indignantly planted his hands on his hips. "Yeah, well, I never said we were, but you've got some nerve to ask us for help by name, and then up and forget about us, sheesh..."
