Who: Saix, Maka, Axel, Rin, and Kid
When: Not too long after the Station Master's meeting
Where: Saix's house
Style: Whatever you want
It was foolish to think he had such an abundance of time, honestly. Now they have to rush things. For someone like Saix, it isn't exactly preferable. Still, he's made his calls- one to Maka and one to Axel- so now all he has to do is wait.
New Moon seems to sense something is off, cuddled up against his master and being strangely quiet.
[If you've visited the island any time in the past week, then you would have had the briefest conversation with Station Master in the elevator, right before you stepped off onto the island, demeanor as polite as ever as he speaks--]
I'm trying out some new cookie recipes and wanted to know if you wanted to try some. Stop by, when you and your friends are able. I’m thinking of baking up a big batch on Saturday and pass them out where we met before. You really should come.[--before the doors of the elevator will close, dissuading further conversation. He certainly looked far too serious to be talking about cookies.]---[For those who take Station Master up on his offer, he'll be waiting by the warehouse up on the island, distracted, before waving people inside. Inside are cookies, muffins, and cups of water, but those aren't the real reason he's summoned you here. When Station Master steps inside, he removes his hat, but his gaze is still distant, as if he has other thoughts preoccupying him.]
I’m sorry for calling everyone here on such short notice. I’m afraid I had little choice though and my message is not an enjoyable one.[His expression is serious now, very serious.]
This morning I intercepted a message meant for the Head Nurse from the lead scientists who are behind this experiment. I was able to erase the message, leaving her unaware of its existence for now but I’m afraid I’ve only been able to buy us some time, nothing more.[He’s reaching into his pocket now, drawing out a folded piece of paper. The message for those who’d rather read it black on white.]
It said they have gathered all the data needed and are shutting down this project. They’ve also given her the all clear on eradicating all left over assets. That is to say… you.((Now with a summary))

Some time later in the afternoonWhere:
Axel and Roxas' apartmentStyle:
Prose, but I'll follow whatever's cool with you, broStatus:
After taking a day for himself to just... sort out his thoughts related to quite a few things, Axel heads back home late one evening and immediately crashes in his bedroom, barely moving until he finally stirs later on in the afternoon the following day. It's clear he was exhausted especially after all those nights not following a proper sleeping schedule, but now he feels... a little better rested, all things considered.
Deciding that he'd rather not wear his coat today, Axel opts for a simple tank top and a pair of jeans then walks out into the living room where he spots all three of the baby chocobos sitting on the couch together. Well... he supposes they're not really babies anymore since they're more or less the size of watermelons now. They can't burrow in his hair and they can't all fit in the bathtub with Roxas in there with them and when they try to play around on the floor they usually end up bumping into things and knocking them over on accident.
... Hm. Maybe it's about time he discussed something with Roxas.
Thinking it, he walks over to the couch to pat each chocobo on the head before he makes his way over to Roxas' room. He hasn't seen Roxas in a little over a day now, so he really should show his face.
"Yo, Roxas. You in there?"
[The mingle party for this month is slightly delayed, and it certainly isn't because Station Master had decided to wait for the perfect weather
Today, the party is taking place on the island, where there are locals stationed out on the beach who're more than happy to toss you a kite and show you how to fly one in this breezy day. There are plenty of kites to choose from, ranging from the simple
to the pretty
to the more tentacular
Further out along the beach are rows and rows of surfboards, with a sign
. With those sweet waves
, doesn't it make you want to get out there and ride them? ...Well, even if you don't, some locals will be quite insistent you try and look they're even willing to show you the ropes!
Away from the waves, however, is an outdoor barbeque, with locals cooking
, fish, hot dogs, skewers... anything you want. There's something for everyone, and if you want to be the cook, they'll happily shove over and give you space to be the Iron Chef of the Beach.
...Actually the party's just an excuse for Station Master to show off his masterpiece
