Who: Nano Shinonome and whoever else happens by
Where: The Naganaki Shrine, Capricon District
When: New Year's Day
Nano's making her first shrine visit of the new year

[It's a cold, crisp morning on January 1st in Hinoto-Ri, and after all the chaos of the events of the month previous, Nano's looking forward to spending a relaxing New Year's Day at home. There's just one thing she has to do before that, though - pray at the shrine for good luck and good health during the coming year. And so here she is at the Naganaki Shrine, dressed in a simple white kimono with a branching floral pattern running up the side as she approaches the steps. Fishing a coin out of the small change purse she has hanging from her obi, she throws it into the offertory box and claps her hands together. Anyone close by can probably hear her muttering her prayer our loud.]

I wish all of my friends will be happy and healthy in the new year, especially Hakase, Sakamoto, Naganohara-san, and Minakami-san back home.

[And then she draws a fortune from the box, unrolling it and smiling at the slip of paper in her hand.]

Medium blessing! It's going to be a lucky year!

[After four days of wandering around aimlessly, the inevitable has finally happened. The two Atsuros stand in the middle of Sagittarius district, facing each other down. The Shadow is no longer withdrawn and timid. Bolstered by the promises it had heard, it stares at its counterpart now with a faint smile.]

I really thought you were going to complain about how we've never beaten Hizumi at that stupid drum game... )

((Warning - Atsuro is Level Max, so the Shadow will pack a pretty hefty punch! There will be two threads for fighting with the Shadow and the Persona or fighting with the demons.))

Who: Nano Shinonome and anyone who wants free ice cream
Where: Amagi Inn lobby
When: Sunday afternoon
Summary: Nano's perfected a recipe for sea salt ice cream and wants to share
Warnings: Action brackets? Action brackets. Also, first thread is backdated to Saturday and locked to Xion.

Ever since Nano's memories got all jumbled up with Xion's, she's been trying to recreate a very specific taste that she can still faintly recall: the salty-sweet taste of sea salt ice cream. Apparently it was important enough to Xion that the taste remained on the tip of Nano's tongue too, and she thought it would be nice if she could figure out how to make it here in Hinoto-Ri to share not only with Xion, but with all of her friends. So today, after some taste testing and the Xion seal of approval, she's finally ready to reveal her creation to the world - and what better venue than the Amagi Inn, considering that Nano's now a co-manager there and that half the place's staff is already composed of people intimately familiar with the taste. On Sunday morning, after she's finished getting everything ready, Nano sends a message out to the COMPs of everyone on the Visitor network:

Today there will be an ice cream social at the Amagi Inn. I'm trying out a new recipe for sea salt ice cream, and thinking of adding it to the inn's summertime menu. Everyone is free to come and try some!

Once the guests have arrived at the inn, there will be a small reception area set up in the lobby of the inn.  Nano is there, wearing a pink kimono and eagerly waiting with an ice cream scoop and bowls to serve the guests.  She also has a number of sea salt flavored popsicles in a mini freezer that she borrowed from the Ichiban Market for the occasion, and to help keep the ice cream nice and cold while she waits for the guests to show up to try some.  Otherwise, it's just a nice little social event where everyone can get a cool treat and relax a little while they mingle with the other Visitors looking to beat the summer heat.

Who: Open log for all Visitors
When: Backdated to July 15th and 16th
Summary: The Government has finally finished its antivirus protocols, and is providing the populace with a way to fight back
Warnings: The usual fight log warnings

After nearly a full week of corrupted files, bricked laptops, improperly filtered network posts, robots going haywire, and general computerized chaos, the Government of Hinoto-Ri has finally stepped in with an announcement of its own.  On July 15th, Kandori sends out a short citywide announcement, accompanied by a heavily encrypted file sent directly to everyone's COMPs, which will begin auto-installing as soon as it is received.  The announcement is short and concise, informing the Visitors that the Hinoto-Ri Government has developed a new app allowing Visitors to access the network in virtual space by directly connecting their consciousness through an uplink established by the nanomachines.  This will allow the Visitors to confront the viruses, which have been determined to composed of programming code tainted by demonic essence, as easily as they would any other demons wandering about during the 13th Hour.  Caution is highly recommended, however, as any damage taken in the virtual world will hurt in the real world as well - additionally, remaining connected for too long will result in extreme mental and physical fatigue.  There will also be instructions to speak with either Atsuro or Ruri to receive antivirus protocols enabling the viruses to be defeated permanently.

Once connected, characters will find themselves in a vast virtual landscape like something out of the movie TRON, with programs and electrical connections whizzing past in every direction.  And in the midst of it all, littered across the landscape, are countless copies of the demonic computer viruses that have been plaguing the network and causing havoc for the past five days.  Visitors will find themselves able to use any weapons or powers they have in the real world, but will have the easiest time accessing their Personas, as they already exist as part of the user's subconscious and are floating even closer to the surface of the Visitors' thoughts in a realm based on pure information and thought.  The Government has requested as many Visitors as possible to enter the digital world to assist with the problem, and while their own servers are locked down as they deal with that infestation themselves, the Visitors are expected to clean up their own network with extreme prejudice.  Most of the viruses are the lower level floating smiley faces, with the three bosses lurking at the center of it all, only accessible once the small fry have been eliminated.  Taking out the boss viruses will result in the simultaneous elimination of all lesser viruses spawned from them, but the boss viruses will only be accessible on the 16th, the last day of the event.

Good luck, everyone!

((OOC: This is an open battle log.  There will be three subthreads - one for each of the 'boss' viruses.  Anyone who just wants to fight the lesser viruses can feel free to make their own threads.  The mods will not be running the fights, so players are encouraged to handle the battle threads however they see fit.  This is also a chance for everyone to use their Personas, as battles fought in the digital realm still count toward unlocking new skills.  And those waiting to awaken their Persona for the first time may find it easier to do here!  Basically, it's just a free-for-all combat log like the monthly 13th Hour logs, so have fun with it!  ^_^))

▼ Evening of the 7th
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: July 7th
Summary: The Star Festival
Warnings: That depends who is there. Remember to mark your titles clearly if any warnings need to be issued!

▼ A tale of two lovers...
The bamboo leaves rustle,
shaking away in the eaves.
The stars twinkle
on the gold and silver grains of sand.
The five-colour paper strips
I have already written.
The stars twinkle,
they watch us from heaven.

▼ A festival for a growing city
It is perhaps the most classical love story that most of the Hinoto-Ri natives knew about; the story of Orihime, the weaving goddess, and Hikoboshi. Instantly falling in love, the two gods would often forget about their duties to the point of negligence in order to be together, so much so that the other gods forcibly separated them. Crying for each other's comfort, they were allowed to visit each other on the 7th day of the 7th long as it didn't rain.

Today, the sun is high in the air, a small wind making the overall experience not too unpleasant. Clearly it's a time for celebration so the lovers may meet again.

[action, June 28th, with Nano Shinonome]
[Well, something bizarre was happening in town again. From the reports coming in, the modus operandi this time around was harmless pranking - nothing to cause permanent damage or anything much more severe than acute embarrassment, but something of an inconvenience, still. On this day, as he has done the last few days, Atsuro wakes up and very carefully checks his room for traps and other such nefarious plots before declaring the coast clear.

The first order of business, of course, is to check the forums he frequents for updates. Atsuro logs on and happily begins to browse the web, somehow failing to notice an extra device stuck into his USB port that wasn't there the night before... A green light flashes on this foreign wireless communications device as the computer starts up. 

...Whoa.  10 new responses.  It was time, as it always was, to edumacate the masses with his wealth of knowledge.  Atsuro clicks the Reply button on topics titled things like 'LF: Radishes, FT: Parsnips', 'how do u get the hammar?' and 'What do the gold tools do?']

Yeah, you have to catch a arapaima in the tropical region to unlock the gold fishing rod. It just gives you an extra bite at the line before the fish escapes.

Anyone want to trade something for daikon radishes? I don't know where all of these came from, but I'm running out of inventory space. I still need to get some arugula growing...

The hammer is kind of useless if you're not going to fight the optional tanuki boss. When he tries to make you pay your loans, you can refuse and fight him for a discount instead. Hammer the weak point for massive damage - or you can use the platinum shovel to create spiked pitfalls.

[TAB to the next screen TAB to the next screen TAB to the next screen....

And across town, whoever is talking to Nano may suddenly find themselves staring at Nano's arm. Which is now cake. Awkward.]

[action, June 30th, 13th Hour]
[Wow that fiasco with Nano had been horrifying to figure out probably the worst thing was that the cake had looked pretty delicious it was hard to problem solve when you kept thinking about taking a bite out of your good friend's cake hand. It is the 13th Hour now as Atsuro decides it is time to step away from his games for a night and actually do the job he was sent here to do. There's something off about Chouchin-obake; it had been impossible to fail to notice as it had grown stronger with repeated training. While the Persona was definitely improving attack-wise, something was... off. It wasn't like Enki, with whom he had felt more and more unified the stronger it had become. Or even Gates, with whom he had shared something of a definite camaraderie by the end.

No, Chouchin-obake just grew more and more ornery and more likely to set random things on fire of its own accord. ...Maybe it was time for a switch.

Caught up in these thoughts, Atsuro is slightly unprepared when he stumbles across the giant rock sitting smack dab in the middle of the Cancer district. He is even more unprepared when it sits up and punches him in the face without so much as a grunt to announce its presence.]


[The Spriggan unfolds itself and lumbers towards the boy, whose immediate reaction is to thrust his hands into his pockets for his COMP which he had found sitting on his end table before he'd gone out.


OK let's try that again. Thrusting his hands into his pockets for his COMP.  Thrusting his hands.... OK, thrusting his hands and he finds... his, uh... belt? And... six tiny red balls.............. what.]


[He prods at one. It spits out an enormous bug. The bug promptly turns around and spits fire at Atsuro.]

What's going on?!

((The first response will probably actually be threads with Nano if anyone is interested in responding to that.  The fairies have hooked it up so that every time Atsuro presses TAB, Nano spits out rollcake! 

Additionally it is also cool to say that the faeries also hooked it up so that everything he types personally is broadcast to the public.))

Where: Capricorn (Naganaki shrine), Virgo (Junes), Taurus (Nyx's Bar), Taurus streets (13th hour)
Summary: It's Taro's birthday! Or the approximate date he thinks he came into existence since he was never actually born. Either way it's time to do the 'appropriate' thing, cruise by a store, and then get drunk. And then stumble out during the 13th hour and get ambushed by a demon. As you do.
Warnings: Is being drunk a warning? idk that I guess. Talk of death. Also probably screaming and swearing for the last prompt.
Do dead people get birthdays? Survey says... yes. )

Who: Nano Shinonome and Atsuro Kihara
Where: A computer lab in Monoceros Community College
When: May 28, evening
Summary: Even after her recovery, Nano's still got a memory that doesn't belong, and she's enlisting some help from someone she trusts.
Warnings: Action brackets because yolo

[Despite how deeply embarrassed and ashamed Nano is of how she treated Atsuro during the events of the past week, there's something she needs his help with.  While it's true that there are several other people she could have asked - Latooni and Ruri come to mind - she's decided that she really does owe him an apology, and this is just as good an opportunity as any.  So she's asked if she can meet him privately after hours at his job at the community college, and that she'd explain when she got there.  The whole invitation was rather hasty and awkward, with no small amount of blushing and fidgeting from her end before abruptly ending the call.

So late that evening - after dinner but before sunset - Nano shows up in the computer lab, knocking somewhat timidly on the door.]

▼ A weekend of healing...
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: May 25th - May 27th
Summary: Two options: Either taken to the hospital to aid their healing, those affected by the strings are suddenly and violently free from their mixed memories. Otherwise, they can stay in their apartment, but they'll need help...
Warnings: That depends who is there. Remember to mark your titles clearly if any warnings need to be issued!

▼ In Leo Ward...
There was not much they could do but observe what was happening, as memories continued to mix between the Visitors, giving them visions of things they would rather not see. The Government did what they could, and offered them a stay at the hospital where, at least, they would be taken care of and less of a danger to others.

What no one expected was that, suddenly, everything would stop. Violently, the Strings snapped back into place, knocking not only the air and energy out of those affected, but damaging their mental state as well.

Left with just lingering small memories of that other person they had shared personal memories with, it would take a few days for everyone to heal.

And yet, some would remember not only that other person but strange little memories as well...perhaps it would be a good time to figure out what those meant with others...

Otherwise, it was going to be a few days of being completely drained of energy, making even using the comp a challenge for tired hands and sore muscles. Many would sleep for a full day, finally enjoying a quiet sleep for the first time in eleven days. For others...well nothing but watching tv and hospital food, one supposes.

But who could have caused this? Perhaps the clues were already in place...
