Selphie, and everyone.When:
All day on the 4th.Where:
That cute little flower shop.Style:
It's your party you can do what you want toooo~
Open to ALL. Srs ALL.
Throughout the day, Selphie makes several announcements on the SFC to promote the flower shop. There's free cake there and, also, free hugs. Cake usually draws a crowd but, if like Selphie, you are suffering with the cold, then hugs will work too.
Today, outside the shop, is an abundance of multicoloured balloons, but more red than any other colour. There's really loads - you could probably take one or two and there still would be plenty. Inside, there are less balloons, but streamers criss crossing all over the shop. By the counter is a huge birthday cake already cut into slices. It's decorated with edible balloons. It's bright in there, with the unmistakeable vibe of a birthday party.
But it isn't a birthday party. Of course, not. Aya strictly said no parties. There're no banners saying Happy Birthday anywhere. The word 'birthday' isn't anywhere. So it's not a party, just Aya's shop decorated like a party, with the entire of Vatheon invited to come along.
So come along, get some cake, have a cuddle, and give birthday wishes to the birthday boy!
Who: Rinoa, Sacra (said cyborg dog) and YOU! Yes, you.
Where: In a clearing near the forest
Style: Prose, but will match!
With her powers returned, and being able to wield her normal weapon again, Rinoa decided it was a good time to get Sacra out and do a bit of training. He was a smart dog and already well trained, but she wanted to see what else he was capable of. Without breaking him or hurting him, of course.
Said training today involved shooting projectiles out of her Blaster Edge mount (not the proper way to use it but shhh) and having him take off after them. Call it Fetch v2.0. The projectiles were a rubber material; tough enough to survive the mount but not so hard as to hurt Sacra's teeth.
The two are going at it with gusto near the forest, with Sacra tearing off after the projectiles. Once it's warmer, she plans to do this on the island, where there's more room and less protective barrier to break.
However, they will need to take a break eventually, so feel free to come say hi and chat.
Who: Aya & Selphie
When: March 26th
Where: The Carnival
Style: Action or prose. We didn't decide.
They had decided to meet at the carnival, so Aya arrived early with a small bouquet of flowers he made himself. That was the perk of owning your own flower shop.The flowers were an assortment of yellow carnations, pink daisies, and white baby's breath. He was dressed in black jeans and a blue long sleeved shirt. Nothing too fancy in case since this wasn't the best place for slacks and dress shoes.
Aya kept his eyes on the lookout for Selphie, not all that nervous about their date. He was hoping they'll actually eat something together, and enjoy each other's company, not have this date become a regretful mistake.
But not nervous at all.
Selphie, Rinoa, and FriendsWhen:
Any time during Rinoa's birthday!Where:
Coral Corral Style:
Ajar (ie - this thread is for Rinoa's birthday, and set at their house. It's open enough that anyone living on Coral Corral who sees/hears the commotion might stop by. And also open enough that (considering it's her birthday) friends of Rinoa can come along and say hi/give presents etc. Just state in your subject line if you want Selphie, Rinoa, or either, or both to reply! Complicated, yeah!)
Outside Number Two at Coral Corral, there are many different coloured balloons surrounding the front of the house. Somehow, Selphie has managed to arrange them into an arch over the door. There's a huge glittery HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner across the gate too. It's important to Selphie that as many people as possible know about Rinoa's birthday.
Inside, there are streamers and paper chains everywhere. It's the brightest collection of birthday decorations ever. If you're stopping by to say hello to the birthday girl, there's also a table set out with various kinds of cakes, snacks, and drinks (yes, even a small bowl of punch). It's also important that Selphie shows hospitality to any guests in her home.
In the morning, Selphie was busy making up some pancakes - one of the very few things she can just about manage. She doesn't believe in waking people too early on their birthday (because sleep is precious and good), so she hopes the smell of pancakes and maple syrup will wake up her friend. Hopefully, too, Rinoa will come to the kitchen first, so that she doesn't see the small pile of presents in their living room.
Selphie and everyone!When: All of Valentine's weekWhere:
Aya's Flower ShopStyle:
Open! Ding Ding!
Valentine's week, and Selphie was keeping herself very, very busy working away in the flower shop. It was the busiest time of the year, after all. Selphie will be spending her week keeping the shop clean and tidy, rearranging the stock, tying ribbons and pink decorations to everything. She's even done a commerical, which will basically involve Selphie explaining how super important Valentine's day is, and giving a 360 shot of the front of the store to show off all the pretty bouquets.
Talking to customers, giving recommendations too, has Selphie rushed off her feet all week. She's taking her work seriously. So if you're just passing by, or need help with the right flowers to get your loved one, Selphie will be there to greet you - and she's wearing pink this week too especially, even tied a ribbon in her hair. Some come on down, lovers and friends, get your flowers here!
[ooc: in your reply, let me know if your char is visiting on Valentine's day itself, as there will be free balloons and chocolates thrown into the bargain!]
Selphie the Fox! Or, partly.When:
All week looong!Where:
You'll probably find her in the park, around some trees somewhere, the forest, or rummaging at the back of a cafe?Style:
Starting prose, but I'm happy with any!
Admittedly, it was a little bit weird at first when Selphie woke up. There was something fluffy and warm beside her, and it was only when she cuddled it properly that she realised it was a tail! Not only that, but it belonged to her. Weird as it was, Selphie warmed to it quite quickly - this was definitely one of the better curses. Getting dressed was interesting though, because she struggled to get into a dress with that tail. Eventually, she managed with a skirt.
So Selphie's now sporting two red ears, a huge fluffy tail, and her nails are long black claws. Yup, she's definitely enjoying her new foxy look!
Throughout the week, you might find Selphie slinking around trees and bushes, on the island or in the bubble, looking like she's up to no good, like maybe she's hunting something, especially as the days draw darker.
At night, Selphie's taken to visiting cafes, but she seems to have a bit of a thing for rifling through the trash with those long black nailclaws of hers.
Whatever you catch her up to, she looks cheeky and sly, moving with a grace that Selphie usually just doesn't have.

all week starting mondayStyle:
open - threadhop & theadjack away[ after the kicked up damage wrought by yami in the south forest quadrant settles down and becomes surveyable by monday, characters are in for a little— or, well, a big surprise that is the secret research facility. the entrance of it is easy enough to find, thanks to the destruction— although a lot of the research facility itself is destroyed as well. the power still works, at least! although whatever network it had seemingly been hooked up to is currently (and likely permanently) offline.
near the ENTRANCE of the facility, characters will likely find a very large chart on one of the walls— it resembles a map with handwritten annotations and will undoubtedly prove useful in further exploration. there's nothing else interesting near the entrance, sans for a few empty desks and a trash bin full of what appears to be torn up employee information of some sort. the other areas that can be found will be as follows:
↪ pretty self-explanatory, although they are extremely minimalistic and completely abandoned. it's likely that the scientists made use of these— some of the beds seem a bit unkempt, as though they were recently used; whereas some rooms have full garbage bins with various papers. many of them are unuseful or flat-out irrelevant, others appear to be outdated schedule data— the dates on most of the papers seem to be from a little over a year ago. basically, the bins are filled with what they were made for— trash.
↪ deeper into the facility, it's obvious that quite a lot of research had been being conducted within— multiple rooms seem to be arranged for just that purpose. most of the rooms are empty or have a lot of strewn tools within them as though they were emptied in a hurry. although one room in particular was left as it was; it's both locked and blocked off though, and might take a little force in order to get into. once inside, a completely white room will be found that might feel familiar to people who had been directly involved in a strange event that had happened quite a while ago... the room is slightly less white than any "experiments" might remember, however. in fact, there seems to be quite a bit of dried blood about the place. the blood can be found on nearly everything in the room— the table accompanied with surgical tools, the cabinet filled with both syringes and old vials of a blue fluid, and a prominent list visible on one of the walls.
↪ one lab in particular found further within the facility appears to be bigger and better than all the others— it's also the only lab with a multitude of computers. due to the power being on, computers will be responsive— although because whatever network they once runned on is no longer online, the only data accessible is offline data found within any harddrives or memory devices.
and there is plenty of that. however, any data found is heavily encrypted and unlike anything ever seen before, so even a normally excellent hacker will have a problem getting past the security walls; and the only file that can be opened immediately seems to make no sense whatsoever:
furthermore, nearly everything resembling paper evidence has been torn or shredded, as evident by the completely empty and ajar file cabinets— not to mention the fact that there are plenty of scraps of unreadable paper strewn across some parts of the floor.
↪ in the deepest part of the lab is a peculair hallway that seems to drop downward— which is curious, since the facility is located so closely on the edge of the island itself. although everything becomes clear should one reach the room near the end of the lowering hallway— a majority of the equipment is damaged, but it is indeed a submarine exit of some sort. could this be how all of the scientists left so suddenly..? in fact, most of the submarines are missing— sans for one, but it's quite old and probably nonfunctional in its current state. you're fully allowed to try and fix it, but it will take both a team of people and several weeks.
↪ also in the deeper part of the facility, although closer to the main lab than the submarine exit, is a completely closed off area— mechanical doors and a digital lock that seems to be online block all from entering. the door seems to open automatically for a keycard, but there's also an emergency override function— that activates via a password. blinking in an almost mocking fashion, it prompts you:

Who: Yosuke and you!
Where: wandering around near the elevator
Style: first person preferred!
what can I say, I'm lazy
[Why was he going out here? If it was only to get some fresh air, then shouldn't he do it when it wasn't raining? Maybe he was getting stir-crazy, sitting in the bubble all the time.
Maybe the rain reminded him of Inaba. At least it wasn't foggy outside, he could give it that. Then he would be even more paranoid than he was already. Especially with Adachi here.
He opens the umbrella as he gets out of the elevator, and looks around--
His little moment of peace doesn't last long before the flimsy umbrella is ripped out of his hands by a gust of wind.
He's stunned, just for a moment, quickly getting more and more wet before he groans.]
Damn it! Why did I come up here??
[He takes off after the umbrella. But guess what? Wet sand is kind of hard to run in.
And guess what? Yosuke's pretty clumsy. Faceplant in 3...2...]
[He goes down, falling into the wet sand. No umbrella. Just the rain and the wet, nasty stuff underneath him.
He's not even going to bother to get up, either. Not for now.
Maybe he should just stay in the house for the rest of his time here. Yep. That sounded nice right about now.
Also, that umbrella? Way gone at this point.]

Status: Semi-open! Threadjack at your leisure!
This area of Vatheon wasn't as clustered as living in the United Kingdom could get, or even Tokyo. It had enough space to move around and was well maintained. It also didn't feel as congested. As Aya sat outside on the door step, he wondered just who did the maintenance around here. Speaking of maintenance, he was sharpening and polishing his sword. It was usually a messy and noisy affair and he'd rather not get the floors inside soiled too badly. He also had more common courtesy than Ken when it came to noises.
