Is it that time of the month already?
...No, today is not the start of shark week.
The Station Master's taken precautions to make this month's mingle party nice and laid back, after that rather magnetic week. Today, locals are all over the Plaza starting to put up the decorations for this strange holiday known as "Christmas", and they're more than happy to cheerfully rope any foreigner who doesn't look too busy into helping them.
The food tables are back, albeit with more drink than food. Hot chocolate,
gluhwein mulled wine, a huge bowl of fruit punch, you name it, it's there. Foodwise, there's snowflake shaped crackers with cheese and meats, shrimp cocktails, cups filled with green or red jelly, and plenty of cookies to go around.
Near the food tables are the two usual booths, one belonging to the Welcoming Committee, armed with all the information a newbie would want to know, and the other belonging to the Host Club, manned by all the male eyecandy you could ever need. Have they done something special for their booths this festive season? Better sashay their way and find out!
Walking around all the tables and booths is what looks to be a giant lobster(???) in a Santa suit handing out candy to anyone and everyone nearby. It seems the locals don't understand that it's "Santa Claus", not "Sandy Claws."
Finally, it looks like there's been a new addition to the plaza. Was that ice skating rink over there last night?? It certainly fits the theme, and the locals don't seem to be surprised. They'll even help you lace up those skates and take them for a spin. Bundle up and try not to fall too much!

Who: Shing Meteoryte, YOU
we're meant to be together Backdating or forward-dating is good.
[ Between finding himself literally stuck to Kohaku at the beginning of the week and seeing that everyone else was having the same problem... to say that Shing was expecting something awkward to happen at some point during this week would be an understatement.
Of course, by this point it would be nearly impossible to avoid going out of the house, especially where errands were involved...
So, after several moments of decision -- as well as his telling Kohaku that he'd contact her if something or someone came up -- Shing's out and about doing... something.
How hilaribad this ends up as depends on who he encounters at this point. ]
( OOC: Catch-all post for Shing for this week's event! Apologies in advance if tags are slow, though... )

Who: Roxas and you!
Where: Vicinity of the ice cream shop
Style: I'll match~
It's not exactly unusual to see Roxas in the vicinity of the ice cream shop. He's probably one of its top customers, aside from the not-having-to-pay part.
What is a little unusual is that he's eating... strawberry ice cream. It's gotten to the point where he doesn't have to say what flavor he wants, but this time the lady at the counter gave him something different, remarking she heard it was his favorite. He's overheard a few similarly strange things from the natives, but mostly harmless stuff about people he doesn't know and he dismissed most of it.
Anyway, there's nothing wrong with trying new things, right? Actually, strawberry's not bad.
((Another rumor going around which Roxas hasn't heard is that he likes kissing folk. Vanitas sure got all the important parts out of that diary. So be forewarned your character may be subjected to kissing... on the cheek.))
Who: Radical Edward and Everyone!
Where: The Plaza!
What: Another new arrival!
Type:Starting Prose, Will follow whatever you want!
With the coral's usual fanfare, another visitor is left lying in a heap in the middle of the plaza. This one appears to be a very androgynous looking girl(?) in her early teens. Sitting alongside her is a very wet looking computer, and a startled Pembroke Welsh Corgi that barks a few times at the girl(?), and then tears off into the city proper after the girl doesn't move.
The unconscious girl(?) continues to lie in the plaza. It is unsure at first glance if she is merely sleeping, or worse.
Wandering around the plaza or market!When:
Open![Like many others residing within Vatheon, Amaterasu was subject to a body exchange as well. "Luke" is wandering around, as though he's just now figuring out how to walk on two feet, and looking remarkably disoriented.]
Hnn...![With a miserable, dog-like whine, it's fairly clear that it's certainly not normal behavior for a teenage boy! There is simply so much to still figure out about this body, that Ammy wanders over to people, pawing at them with hands (though she's had them three times, thumbs are still just the strangest thing) to get their attention.]
Hnn... oof! Woof![The attempts at barking are likely attention-grabbing, as well.]
: Walter and youWhere
[Today, Walter breaks his typical routine by heading down to the plaza. Normally, he would check on Shirley first but lets her be, and goes out without the usual cape to boot. He doesn't appear nearly as tense, though his posture is still guarded; careful.
Upon seating himself in an outdoor cafe, a familiar waitress attends him.
]Hello there! Oh . . . you look a little different today. Waiting for someone?
[Walter stares, and she continues on on an assumption.
]Here's some water, free of charge. I'll be back once your girlfriend comes!
[But he came alone. And alone he is, sitting near a fountain with an untouched, full cup of water, across an inversely empty chair. If he had to answer why he's there, he wouldn't be able to supply a reasonable answer. There's . . . nothing else to do.
He just looks out of place. There's a nagging feeling in the back of his mind, and it's steadily beginning to irk him despite his otherwise cooler disposition.
Who: Walter, Chibiterasu, and Shirley
Where: Phasma Apartments
[When Walter ascends to the second floor, he finds that his door is ajar despite the lack of memory lapse. That can mean two things, and he's inclined to think one of them. He stills for a moment, eyes searching for the (stupid) intruder.
Upon closer inspection, he spies a white and black tail poking out from inside.
. . .
He starts for the door.]
