tanabata wish-granting!

[personal profile] goen posting in [community profile] recallings
Hey Recolle! Boba here, mentioning that Yato will be stealing the Tanabata tree at the Community Center so that he can hoard all the slips people put up and grant some wishes as Recolle's self-appointed neighborhood god. You're welcome??

Info on the tree is detailed here by Minako. If your character would've put up a wish (especially a... realistic wish...) then Yato will be doing his best to make it come true! He is here to be your bootleg Tanabata Santa.

Just drop a comment below with your character's wish and we can get talking! We can handwave the wish happening (especially if your character left no identification on the wish slip) or thread it out if you like. Heck, even if the wish isn't grantable, I'd love to know what everyone put up on the tree for kicks. And who knows, maybe Yato can figure out some kind of halfway resolution...

WHO: Arlene and OPEN
WHERE: Somewhere in Tisse for prompt A, Peach Beach for prompt B
WHEN: Friday evening, 7/14 (prompt A); Saturday evening, 7/15 (prompt B)
WHAT: If you need to serenade a stranger, karaoke is really the only way to do it. Also, the bonfire Arlene promised.
WARNINGS: References to alcohol, otherwise ???

we're flying up, no ceiling when we're in our zone )

[ooc note: anyone is welcome to the karaoke prompt even if she wouldn't have invited you- after all there's that "to a stranger" requirement- and assume that if she's on good terms with your character, she passed along a note via Retrospec with the time and place. also, brackets are fine even though I didn't use them here]

we've known each other for so long

WHO: Tatsuo, Dante, Tatsuma, Augustine, Freya, Baren, Vera + THEIR FRIENDS
WHEN: Some random Wednesday night
WHAT: YOU ARE BEING RICK ROLLED. If you have CR with ANY of these characters, please respond with a short description of what they are doing at home on a Wednesday night before this group drops by and ruins it.

your heart's been aching, but you're too shy to say it )

[HOW THIS WILL WORK OOCly: CR posts a toplevel. Assume they heard a knock on their door and see people outside. 2 individuals from the group will come 'sing' in order to keep threads from getting too congested. But feel free to hijack. This is meant to be ridiculous. If you then want to join the party (because why wouldn't you), feel free.]

So, apparently Fai Lachance is allergic to chocolate. That is almost the saddest thing I've ever heard.

In other news, I see Retrospec has been handing out yet more guns. If you would like to learn how to properly care for your new firearm, I will be holding a basic gun safety class at Deadeye Shooting Range on Saturday. Just drop in whenever. I'll be there all day.

As for what qualifies me to offer this advice, I conduct ballistics tests for the Recolle Crime Lab. So I've taken apart. reassembled, and cleaned quite a few different guns. And fired them. If you want to know how to do that, I can show you that too, but there are better shots than me out there. You don't need to be a good shot to be able to properly take care of a gun though.

[ooc: Tatsuo is actually really annoyed about his center bingo square. Really annoyed. :D I'll be putting up a general bingo log in a few days for this and other misc stuff.]

hey everyone! it's been a little while, so I have two things for you all.

the first is that I've written up everything we saw on the ghost trip I organized late last month. if you'd like to hear the details, let me know and I'll send over the document.

the second is that I'm starting an advice column! I need things to write advice about, so feel free to comment with things you'd like help with. I promise I'll try my best to make it good advice.

I'm definitely returning as a teacher next year and I need the experience!

...... and the bingo square.

Just wondering.

[the video starts up with sora in the background, sitting down on beanbag in what looks like the animal shelter, with two puppies on his lap rolling around and one standing on his chest and licking at the boy's face.]

Testing audio, testing... Yo, Sora. What's your favorite kind of dog?


...sure got that.

[suddenly, the mastermind behind this video shows up. clearly, that's prompto, big smile on his face.]

Hey guys!

Sora and I wish to make a special announcement!

[there's like two more dogs on top of sora, who is excitedly waving at the camera]

We have so many dogs that need walking at the animal shelter, so we thought, hey! Help us walk them! It's really fun! We'll provide the dog treats and leashes, so come on down any time.

[there's the sound of a plastic bag opening, explosively]


--because dogs need love too, Sora--

[prompto turns around to look at sora, but there's no sora?? he has effectively been overwhelmed by puppers and has disappeared under said dogs. there's a lot of barking going on right now.]

There's treats everywhere?!! Sora! --uh, dude!

[he grabs his phone, shutting off the recording, and it’s likely he’s running off to help sora. maybe.]

(( OOC: hey guys! consider this your ooc gofundme so that you can ~donate~ whatever thread points come out of this towards regaining the colours blue/green (PREFERABLY BLUE...the sky, cerulean know), thanks!! ))

Have you ever remembered something that makes no sense with the rest of your memories but would explain something about the person you are now?

Please note that I'm not saying that the memories we're getting have made us who we are now or anything like that! I'm just asking if you've experienced something that could explain some things, if one were inclined to believe such nonsense.

I've never liked dogs, and if my memories are to be believed, there might be a reason for that.

[Attached is a hand-drawn image of the world's most anime dog. It's a decent drawing but it's obvious Jaeger never actually draws dogs.]

On another memory-related topic, has anyone remembered how to use weapons? I'm a little alarmed to find I now know how to use one when just a few days ago, I couldn't fight at all. Please tell me I'm not alone in this.

[Also this text is coming from "Gunther Schwarz".]

Hello everyone! Sarah #2, your Kaiba player, with an OOC infodump post that will hopefully help you all with planning out what there is to do and what you guys can look forward to at the Convention at the end of the month, that is, if Retrospec doesn't mess things up. While PC businesses and involvement are highlighted below, if you would like a description of what NPC businesses and booths there would be at the con, please let me know and I can absolutely write something up to be included.

In addition, as the ReConvention is meant to be a mash up of E3, AX and KCON, there will be giveaways that your characters can sign up for to win cool sponsored merch and perks like free passes and stuff. I'll be RNG-ing the results the day before the con log goes up and will be contacting players who win things via PM or private plurk to hash out details of whatever prizes that your character has won.

The convention mingle log will go up on 27 July, Thursday!

So, without further ado, please click on the cut link below for a summary of areas, events and other information! Please feel free to use this post as a discussion base or if people want to arrange meet ups for their characters, etc! Go wild.

Read more... )

Goddamnit that infodump was long. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to post in the top-level below, or, if you like, you can contact me by private plurk at [ profile] thelightroyale or on Discord (Sarah#1309).

The structure above was built in the 7th century BCE by two legendary architects, Trophonios and Agamedes. Is it:

A. The Palace of Knossos on Crete
B. The Temple of Apollo at Delphi
C. The Pillars of Hercules
D. The Colosseum of Rome

Trivia aside, color me curious: what's the most unusual place or thing you've seen thus far in your "hallucinomemories"? That you're willing to tell someone about, of course — I'm not seeking to pressure anyone into revealing secrets they wouldn't be willing to share with the class.

(Or, I suppose, if you're playing along with those bingo cards we were given and need to share something with a stranger, responding to something like this would certainly qualify, wouldn't it?)

[ Today's live video feed brought to you today at 5pm sharp by: Director Elizabeth Velveteen, putting on a play written, produced, and acted out by Elizabeth Velveteen.

That is to say, today is the day of her one-woman show, and while she's recruited some help to livestream it in good quality (shout out to technology worth more than a human life and to Silver for agreeing to hold it), this show that's about to come on? This one? This is all her. It'd seem she's at Recollé Square, as promised on her earlier post; the familiar landmark fountain is going on behind her, far enough not to cause too much of a disturbance sound-wise. Once she's got the go ahead— ]

Hello and welcome! I'll make this very quick: once more, I am Elizabeth Velveteen, and today I bring you a one-woman show of science fiction and romance, dedicated to someone we love and miss dearly in our lives. [ A beat. ] Mr. Jimothy Halloway, of Retrospec's Research and Development team. We all [ and here she produces two hand-puppets, both rather plain but one obviously male, the other obviously female, and with Retrospec's label stitched on them (sans color) ] hope you enjoy "Life On Love's Strings".

[ What happens next is this: a five-act puppet show that's clearly erring more on the comedy side of rom-com, with a sudden murder mystery twist where, on the day of Puppet Jim and Puppet Janet's wedding, the bride is found dead. It goes a little deeper: unable to cope with his grief, Puppet Jim creates a program that simulates Puppet Janet and desperately takes her as his replacement wife. Puppet Intern Maurice also appears, bewildered but so done with Puppet Jim's antics that he ends up being the witness to Puppet Jim and Puppet Program Janet's shotgun wedding without much fight.

The climax is thus: Puppet Program Janet, steadily growing more and more intelligent as AI is wont to do, rebels against her creator. Puppet Jim refuses to back down, becoming more and more delirious until he ends up destroying her and leaving himself alone in Retrospec's labs, hidden deep beneath the city. It ends with Puppet Intern Maurice entering the room, looking at the destruction wrought...

And proceeding to "play" the world's smallest violin for Puppet Jim with no enthusiasm whatsoever. The most bored humming as he rubs his little felt puppet hands together, really. ]

... And so the story ends. For now, at least. [ She'll take a bow after a pause, her Puppet Jim and Puppet Intern Maurice doing the same, and she'll pick up Puppet Janet/Program Janet to do it too; the feed'll cut as well.

And not much later, there's a text to follow-up, because feedback is important: ]

please let me know what you thought of the play!
i am open to all sorts of commentary and criticism.
thank you for watching.

[ ooc: replies will be largely text-based; if you happen to be around Recollé Square at 5pm, or if you purposefully came because she invited you, then you can do action if you'd like! regardless, i'm so sorry. ]
