They were cute before. I guess they're kinda cute now too. Still.

'xcept they're kind of...wild. I don't know if anyone's figured out a way to um...deal with them without you know, killing them uh but if anyone has...

[ it would be a lie to say he hadn't grown fond of one before it hatched, grew, and spawned an appetite for a sizable planet... ]

Well, that'd be good. I wish they didn't grow like that...but this is the City... [ sigh ]

Roxas, are you...

][ private : ventus ][

I need to talk to you. Not at home though. Or the ice cream place...Xanadu maybe? Should be okay until a dragon shows up, at least.

][ /end private, ventus ][

[ Not cursed, Sora still has found himself wound up with it as be keeps getting beaned with renegade basketballs. For refuge -- sort of -- he has set himself up in the ice cream shop he and Roxas, and recently Ventus too, have frequented. The glaring sign of something amiss can be seen in two things: one, no ice cream in front of him and two, the menu he keeps flipping through listlessly. He's never actually looked at said menu before, didn't even know they had one, but normally he's too busy to bother noticing. Laughing. Joking around. Eating inhuman quantities of ice cream - sometimes varied sometimes the same.

He didn't even mean to come here; he just ended up here anyway.

Closing the menu, he slides off the stool and shoves his hands in his pockets, heading for the door. It's only been about an hour but the itch to see the others, even if they don't say anything, is there again. Peering out the glass of the shop door, he squints.

Sora being Sora, the jostling of the device in his pocket has turned it on again, so anyone listening in might catch a snippet of a post, nothing much just a faintly muffled:

Spring soon...I hope...

[ Not perhaps that the weather would help, but it couldn't hurt...right?

He steps out of the ice cream parlor, the first time he can remember at least going and leaving without anything.

[ooc: placeholders forever itseems sigh but action if youre near the parlor or even en route on the street if you like...alternately that tidbit of audio! annnnd i know i'm verrry scattered in presence too so transvective@gmail.com if anything..... <3 ;-;]

Hope everyone's taking good care of their hearts. And their friends' hearts.

[ pause ]

I know some people've had to go looking for them. If anyone needs help, I'd be happy to.

[ there is some faint mreowling in the background and then a purr and a laugh. ]

Apparently mine makes a good pillow. Or something.

[ 'or something' indeed, not in small part because it is not his alone, not really. details warrant confusion here to say the least but at this point it's always going to be a long story - longer than even Sora himself can consciously recall.

here at least it's been quiet - comparatively - since the zombie-like influx a while back, and although this particular curse makes him sad for different reasons - surface and subconscious alike - , it also makes him grateful. there's a breath like he's going to say something else and then just a click of the recording turning off instead.

How's everyone gonna celebrate the New Year? Well. New Year's Eve, I mean.

[ pause ...oh and ... ]

 Roxas, Ventus... you guys wanna do anything special?


30 November 2012 @ 11:48 pm
Almost Christmas.

I hope everyone at home is good.

I hope--

Sometimes being here is a little like being in a dream. Easy to lose track of time. Huh.

Anyone get a tree yet?

[ --the device clicks on but there's the rustle of fabric buffered and muffling voices that seem to be at odds with each other - Sora's and Vanitas' voices specifically. ]

--just let me get...

[ Sora cuts off and there's the sound and scrape of the device landing on the ground, plus some screeching feedback. It flicks to video then, a sharp angled view of the cage floor and two sets of feet - back to back, or rather heel to heel. The image shakes as one set of feet makes the attempt to walk away (again) and the other feet scramble for leverage, but this only results in-- ]

Hey --

Stop being so--

[ The device's image shakes more as the bodies attached to the two sets of feet crash to the floor. Though you might have to squint at first, the floored pair is apparent: Sora and Vanitas, sewn back to back - which means Sora seems to have landed on his back, and because his back is sewn to Vanitas' back, well.... Vanitas has his face flat to the ground. ]

[ooc: open to network responses OR action, if action, Vanora Vanitas and Sora are stuck in a cage at the circus because Vanitas can't be trusted for reasons. --for those unfamiliar with what you'll be looking at, it (they) more or less LOOKS LIKE THIS - since lol face twins and also the way they're attached. 8'( Italicized dialogue was Vanitas.]
30 September 2012 @ 09:07 pm
[ A burp...and then another burp, this one sort of sounding like there's a hiccup in there too. ]

Wonder if there's a City record for the number of cakes eaten...

That makes...25? No...27. I think. So far.

You guys should really try some of these. They're great!
20 September 2012 @ 02:52 am

T-shirts. Dancing. This month's not too bad so far, even with all the throwing stuff on the ground that one day... and it's already, what...halfway over? Huh.

[ What things he's thinking concerning two specific new arrivals however he keeps to himself, more curiosities from not knowing much at all to begin with. There's a pause here, in any case. ]

Aaaanyway, I figured, while it's quiet, I'd bring up the side...business...hobby...thing Roxas and me've been running. More of a reminder. Either way, it's just for errands - more or less, but having someone to get stuff for you can come in handy - especially here.

Um, so that's either me or Roxas you can get a hold of, if you've got something you need picked up or delivered. We'll be happy to do it.

Guess that's all for now. Sora - over and out!

[ /click! ]

[ooc: RL wallopping me horrifically...will get to backtags for Arthur later today after stupid late class and any tags here too ;_; ajlfksdjol /)_(\ ...]

[ See Sora. See Sora handstand. See Sora walk on his hands!

...see Sora not walk on his hands...er...as in, timberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

His legs flail something like a person trying to tread water for the firs time before he's down for the count. There's an offended yowl and a Sorry! somewhere in the center of the tumble. Notably, his feet lack the normal shoes (the only shoes he owns...apparently), yellow clown clodhoppers replaced with bright blue heels. They're fairly tame, all things considered.

But Sora is also fairly hopeless on them.

He sits up, shaking his head to clear it, saying to an off-camera spectator:

No laughing! You try it. It's hard!

Not as hard as walking on these though...

[ This last part is said more to himself kicking his feet up for inspection, shoulders slumping, a frown to his usually glass-half-full visage. Adjusting the device, he looks directly into the camera, :c ]

Can anyone give me some advice? Or something... ]

[ooc: still tagging old things u_u backdating always, always appreciated ;; i know my face is basically labeled "Slowbro" in the Pokedex so really thank you <3 /shuffles to make one more post abuh... ]
15 July 2012 @ 04:18 pm

[ The line is on but eerily quiet, just the sound of footfalls but really even that's more of a scuffled shuffle - like someone's dragging their feet, or just, you know, lost. ]



...is anyone...there?

What happened to everyone?

...maybe I'm dreaming?

Ow...okay maybe not...

[ After a moment's idling he sighs and turns the device off. ]

[ ooc: placeholdery eventually ._.;; b-but wanted this up at a time that's not like you know 11pm..../stares at track record abysmally ... but yes, 'lost not found' cursed :x ]
01 July 2012 @ 07:41 pm

Iwha--, [ --and further garbled non-words as the device turns on, a lot of noise from all the crowds and Sora's at the zoo so it's especially packed - people viewing all the typical and atypical residents or just trying to pass through. In the background sound one might hear an elephant. By the time it cuts back in, it's much quieter, though there's a fair amount of street noise still. ] Phew. Crazy weekend again huh. I know it annoys a lot of people, but I...I honestly like it.

I just wish people would stop trying to touch my hair...

Aaaanyways, I hope everyone gets to see someone they've been missing, today. Or that they saw them yesterday. Both days would be even better.

[ He pauses. He hasn't seen anyone, but he's still looking and it may or may not be surprising how much ground Sora can cover when he puts his mind to it. ]

Hey Roxas...does Axel need to be taken out soon?

[ooc: slow re midterm sob summerrrr but 4th wall cannot be missed x(!!!! <333 ]
Current Mood: HOPEFUL ;3;

Guess we're lucky permanent marker isn't really permanent.

But ...IIIIII'm not so sure about the paint that got on the cats...

They don't seem uncomfortable.

It just looks weird...

Kinda splotchy....

[ DEFINITELY STILL GETTING to tags sob on other post ;-; sorry guys the month crept and crept and then SNAP...upon me...so thank you for patience always and just yes ;; <333 /slowly! ]

28 April 2012 @ 09:29 pm

I keep wondering if there's a reason these crazy everything-curses happen kinda regularly and...the other ones don't. I mean, I guess it's not exactly that, since it's a bunch of curses just all at once. But isn't it the only kind of thing that keeps happening in, you know, a way we can expect?

Sometimes I wonder if there's not just Deities but a machine attached to the clock or the carousel or something, something they use. Like...like an oven. You make a cake, but deities make curses uhhhh okay maybe that doesn't work but you know what I mean, right? So for one curse you put one thing in and for another you put something else, but for a ton of curses you just throw everything into the oven.

I mean...after all this time I still don't get it - the curses, I'd say some of them are fun even if other ones are pretty awful. Someone told me they thought it was maybe that the City kinda runs on upsetting people. [ ,_, pause ] But that doesn't explain the nice things - like the cake falling out of the sky day, or being turned into a little kid. I always have fun on those days. [ ...perhaps not so much for his poor bro/keeper.... ] And there was a school one - a few times - and I don't even usually like school but it was kinda fun anyway...

Just thinking, I guess. Who made this place? There's gotta be some kind of reason for it, right?

[ Pause... ]

Riku get out of that shoe...

[ CLICK! ]

31 March 2012 @ 11:26 pm
[ A child's sigh and then the fwump of said child sitting in Utter Rejection. ]

's good food. Wonder why he won't eat it. [ Dramatic shift in tone as he comes to the unhappy conclusion: ] Maybe he's sick...! Should tell somebody!

[ Fumbling to his feet, Sora's in a hurry, enough that he drops the device - sorry network, that's a long shrill eeeeeeeeeeee of feedback from said device. It scrapes along the ground as he scoops it up and turns it off. ]

So, two things. One, I was thinking about starting a service for running errands and stuff. Well, actually it's me and Roxas.

It's pretty straightforward: we would pick things up or deliver them.

But I'm not sure this'd be very useful for a lot of people. I figure we'll try it out for a month or two, see how it goes.

Uh, we don't have a name. Yet. But anyone who's interested, feel free to talk to me or Roxas.

[ pause ]

The other thing is, a while ago a girl, Hermione, told me she was thinking of starting up a protection group for people in the City who can't fight or aren't as good at it. I still think that's a good idea.

I was wondering if...there's anything like that already. Other than the police, I mean.

29 February 2012 @ 01:00 pm

[ This is a happy burp! Then a pause. ] Was kind of too bad to have to say goodbye to Jiminy Jr but it sure is nice to eat real food again. My mouth'd started tasting like sand. Eugh.

I'm glad nothing happened to the cats while we were gone. Guess they were used to feeding themselves before we came along anyway.

[ Pauuuuse. ]

Um...but hey, how many people're still stuck? This place seems back to normal...ish...mostly.

[ooc: and back later - some cramming before moar class weep ;;.....]

19 February 2012 @ 09:21 pm

[ When the device clicks on it's in a tumble of sand and when it rocks to a stop lodged in a convenient dune the scene is like this:

At first there is Roxas, BESET BY DEVIOUS GREEN CREATURES that look a lot like cacti with faces - creepy, yes, they know. They seem to be attacking him, since that's how they roll when they're not running away.

But lo, the sand stirs wildly and it seems there may be another foe to deal with until the sandworm in question snakes right past the blond to devour all three cactus creatures in one fell...bite.

Roxas! Hey, are you okay?!

[ Baffling, that voice, considering the worm's mouth is not moving, but then... ]

Up here!

[ The device doesn't have a wide enough view for Sora who's out of camera shot at first, until the sandworm bends what serves as its neck and brings itself face-to-face with Roxas as Sora beams over its head and grins. ]

Or down here. Hi. Roxas, meet Jiminy Jr!

[ Jiminy Jr has more slits than apparent eyes...but they do seem to twitch at the blond, not quite able to blink. Sora, for his part, keeps beaming.

Roxas stares back. U n s u r e.
