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...

[(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.

[Shiki is roused awake by the smell of roasting sweet potatoes, eyes squinting a little at the bright natural light shining down above her as she's pulled out of sleep. This... was definitely different than usual. Not even in F3 did they ever have light that felt this natural, and this cold air was nothing like the perfectly regulated temperatures inside the station. Mr. Mew wasn't around anywhere, nor were her pins on her at all, which was another thing that struck the wrong chord; never did Val send them somewhere without their weapons on hand. Shiki didn't seem to have her faciliberry on her at all, either. Not to mention that weird dream... what in the world was going on?

Looking down to check her seamless metal collar-- yup, black and thus deactivated-- Shiki rises to her feet, smoothing out her clothes a little before wrapping her arms tightly around her to keep back the cold. For now, she'd proceed assuming this was an F3 trip; after all, this certainly wasn't Shibuya, which meant she wasn't sent home somehow...

Brb, wandering around the district.]

Neku has only been here for a few hours now, and already he feels like he's been rushed. After getting his bearings and being told where he was and what was going on, he'd been directed to the apartments, and thankfully most of his clothes from the Facility had followed him there... He'd changed his shorts for a pair of jeans and switched out the jacket he'd borrowed from the other him for a hoodie that Shiki had made him, simply because it was more comfortable in more ways than one.

But after that, there was something he needed to do. Playing with the COMP and figuring it all out could wait until later. Right now, his priority was finding Shiki.

... the trouble, though, had been knowing where to start. This place is, apparently, huge. And there hadn't been a guarantee that Shiki would show up in the same place as him, if she was here at all. So, he'd picked a district randomly. Aries had won the draw, so that's where he went, spare jacket in hand. And that's where he is currently.

... lucky for him, it takes all of five minutes of wandering before he spots a familiar face as he's passing through the crowds. His luck is awesome. "Hey! Shiki!"

Shiki's head jerks up as she hears the sound of her boyfriend's voice, body language relaxing tenfold. A small smile crosses over her face as she turns to look at him, walking forward to close the distance between them.

"Neku! I'm glad you found me, I can't seem to find my 'berry anywhere. We're in F3 again, right? Is Val trying to pull some stunt about communication or something?"

That wouldn't explain why her weapons were missing, but perhaps that was part of the experiment as well. After all, there was a lot of fighting lately, and maybe Val was trying to teach them a lesson? As much as it pained her to be left defenseless in a new location, it would probably be good for them all to go at least one week without someone trying to murder someone else. At this point she honestly couldn't tell if they were stuck in a small space with a bunch of crazy people, or if the very fact they were stuck in a small space was driving them all crazy. Either way, there was a reason she stuck with her friends and didn't really talk to many new people anymore...

Neku can't even begin to explain the relief he feels upon seeing that collar. He'd never thought he would be so happy to see it on someone.

As Shiki stops in front of him, he drapes the spare jacket around her shoulders. He knew it was cold and that, if she were here, she might not be wearing something particularly warm. Thinking ahead, yes. He's a good boyfriend. ... right?

"No. This isn't F3." He can't exactly contain the grin as he speaks, far too excited at the prospect. "We don't have our 'berries because this isn't anywhere in the station at all. After I got here, someone that recognized the collars contacted me and told me what's going on. She's Sora's friend, from the same place we came from. And Naminé is here, too."
nyantan: ([RG] worried blush)

[personal profile] nyantan 2013-03-12 01:01 pm (UTC)(link)
She pulls the jacket around herself gratefully, smiling up at him a little for the thoughtfulness. Yes Neku, very good boyfriend. Her expression starts to shift as he speaks however, eyebrows quirking with confusion and disbelief.

"Naminé? But..." She's dead. Shiki watched her die, saw her name show up on the terminated list... "How is any of that possible?"

[personal profile] feelingepic 2013-03-12 01:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Pretty much identical to his reaction, to be honest. Neku can't really blame her for thinking it sounds bizarre. But after hearing Kairi's name, he'd felt a lot more comfortable with it.

"Dunno. But... we're out. Somehow, we're out." He gives her a warmer smile, then glances away at one of the buildings nearby. "Naminé didn't know about what happened with the pods. I don't know how it works. I'm just glad not to be in that place anymore."
nyantan: ([RG] o)

[personal profile] nyantan 2013-03-12 01:13 pm (UTC)(link)
She pulls the jacket a little closer around her, not really quite able to believe his words. She wanted to, but... it seemed just too good to be true. It had to be a trick, or a dream... there was no way Val would've ever let them leave. Yet, if they were able to be dragged to Facility against their wishes, who's to say they couldn't be dragged from Facility...

"I... I don't know what to say."

Shiki almost felt like if she were to let herself feel any sort of excitement, it'd all disappear like a cruel trick. The girl reaches up to pap her cheek a little, as if the impact would prove whether or not she was really dreaming or not.

[personal profile] feelingepic 2013-03-12 01:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Yep. Definitely similar reactions. Not surprised in the least. Neku just laughs, reaching out to, uh. Put his hand on her upper arm. Yeah. Which turns into an only partially awkward hug on his part. God, he'd been so worried she wouldn't make it here...

"It's real. We've got our own apartments, our stuff followed us here... I practically got assaulted by Koma when I opened my door. And we've got these glasses that sort of act like the 'berries do."
nyantan: ([RG/Neku] snug)

[personal profile] nyantan 2013-03-12 01:30 pm (UTC)(link)
She presses forward to turn it into a more legitimate hug, pressing her forehead against his shoulder a little. Shiki is a bit shell shocked with all of this, to say the very least. To think they actually... got out...

"Oh my god."

Yeah just. Let her gape a little as she processes this information fully.

[personal profile] feelingepic 2013-03-19 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
... he's not surprised, really. So, while Shiki lets it all sink in, Neku lifts a hand to the back of her head and brushes his fingers through her hair. It had taken him a little while to fully process it himself.

"Yeah. We made it. We actually made it."
nyantan: ([RG] adoring look)

[personal profile] nyantan 2013-03-22 10:28 pm (UTC)(link)
"Is everyone else here, too?"

Shiki pulls back out of the hug some to look up at Neku hopefully, fingers tightening a little around the fabric on his back.

[personal profile] feelingepic 2013-04-03 07:17 am (UTC)(link)
... and here, his smile finally fades. But only a little. It's pretty genuine, so it isn't going to fully disappear any time soon.

"... Kairi, Sora's friend, is here. And Naminé." That one, he's been the most excited about by far. But... "... they're the only ones, other than us."
