: Lily, Jasmine, Marina | 3/16, 3/18, 3/20; afternoon | local gym]( And you're a big ol' wuss if you don't jump in- hey, don't push me! (splash) )
| video | 3/16, evening | Winter and Lily's house][As night fell, Winter returned home to relax for the rest of the night, a little tired and kind of wrung-out, but feeling pretty good about things. The water had refreshed her in a lot of ways, almost as much as hearing that she's still pretty even with the damned scar in full view. And now that she feels kind of re-energized, it's probably not a bad idea to update the network that she's still alive. Now that her hair's dry, she figures now is as good a time as any, and as she sits on the couch brushing her hair, she kicks the video feed on, smiling softly. She's changed out of her swimsuit, into something that looks soft and flannel and totally not matching her eye color, what are you talking about?]
Hi, everyone... I'm sorry I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a little while there. I got hurt badly in the operation in Lapland, and I had to go to the hospital... I've been recovering for some time, but I'm feeling a lot better now. I know some people were worried about me, and I wanted to make sure everyone knows I'm okay. That we're not so easy to remove from the equation.
It feels like I've missed so much since I checked in last, and yet... there are some things that are more important. I've learned that, now. There were lights in the sky, and a crisis halfway around the world, but even though those are things we need to address sooner rather than later, I just... I feel like I should be paying a little more attention to things I see more often. Things that are more important to me. Saving the world is important, and there are still things only we can do. That hasn't changed. But I think I understand now that, sometimes, saving something - or someone
- that is
your entire world is... kind of important, too.[She says it with a completely straight face. She's come to peace with the fact that she should probably be dead. But in that moment, Lily's safety was more important than her own. And she learned an important lesson as she drove without hesitation or regret. One that just might be important enough to share with everyone else, too.]
But I didn't get on the network to harp on people and sound like I'm someone fancy. In case anyone new is here after the lights in the sky, I'm Winter Adamas; you've probably seen Cure Diamond on the news, which is also me. Welcome to the network, where the memories don't matter and reporters are your new worst friend. For everyone else... what did I miss? I want to hear from everyone about the last six weeks!
