[Nat has been spending a lot of time holed up by herself. She looks a little bedraggled, but excited.]

Hey, hey. I have most of the parts I need to make something special. Now I just need some crystals. [Now Nat makes a face. She doesn't like to have to ask this.] There's some that could do under the mountain in Vegas, but I kind of expect if I go alone my evil clone will come? She might anyway. She's, uh... the powers I'm getting are stronger if you're nasty and violent, which sucks. Help me out?
peacefulwinter: (Listen to me carefully.)
[personal profile] peacefulwinter
Good afternoon, people of Earth. My name is Winter Adamas, or Cure Diamond if you've seen me running around trying to help save the world. I'd like to talk to you about a couple things, so if you have a little time, please listen. I promise, I won't take all day.

[Winter's sitting in her living room, laptop sitting on something high enough that it's recording her straight on. She's acquired a better microphone so she can be a little better understood; it's weird to think of the production values of a YouTube video, but it's quite a bit better than nothing. On the wall behind her, pictures of herself and Lily, and some more of her Numbered friends. A picture of her birthday party, two years ago. A group photo someone took of the All-Stars Precure. The last two years of her life are behind her, and she wants to make sure she'll have a lot more years to come.]

I've got another confession, my friend- I'm no fool. )

When taken together, it looks a lot like something dangerous is about to happen. It's hard to know, but with our belief that the Animals are on our side, there's one conclusion to draw. Since an event nearly two years ago, we've known that the planet called upon us - upon a number of "past selves", whose souls give us our powers; simply, we're reincarnated - to protect it from some unknown threat. That threat isn't any more known, but I believe it's drawing closer. And that's why I wanted to speak to you today.

[She looks straight at the camera, with a more serious expression than she's perhaps ever shown anyone before. This is the moment-!]

Very soon, a calamity will come to our world. There's no telling what it entails. Who it will affect. The scale of the damage. What the cause will be. None of that is clear to us. But what is clear is that, between the Animals, some offshoots of their power that have gained smaller forms, and the Numbered, we are the fighting force that will defend the planet. The militaries of the world, humanitarian forces, individuals with power of their own... we anticipate and welcome their contributions. But we are the last line of defense. It will fall to us to save the Earth.

[Well. There it is. She's got a feeling she's going to lose a lot of views, right there. Either from shock, anger, disbelief... but what she's saying, she believes wholeheartedly. So she has to keep going, with only a brief pause.]

I don't say this lightly. I've worried about what this means for months. If we should have told anyone in the first place. If we should have tried to appeal to another force for help, to turn over management to another power. If my shoulders, if all of our shoulders together, are wide enough to bear the burden of an entire world. If I have the power to protect the people closest to me, let alone an entire world.

But I'm not alone. The other reincarnates, some of whom I'm proud to call my friends, and all of whom I'll trust in a pinch. [She doesn't let certain specific people she doesn't get along with; that's not the point, and it'd weaken her position.] Those who were once reincarnates, and have since lost their numbers. The beings that draw their powers from the Animals. The Animals themselves. My fiancée, who I cherish with all my heart. All of my precious friends and acquaintances, across town and across the world. I carry everyone's hopes and feelings with me, and I know that, together, we can protect our world from anything that stands against us.

Speaking for myself and my team, the All-Stars Precure, I take the threat of catastrophe very seriously. It might be a little idealistic - and severely short-sighted - to say that I won't let anything happen on my watch. But I've always said that I didn't get these powers to sit on them and do nothing. I have a responsibility to do my best with the resources I have, and while I'd like to say I can protect the world, I can only be in so many places at once. But you have my word that I'll do everything I can. [Winter being Winter, she'll probably do more than she can, and pay for it afterward. But hey, that's never stopped her before, as the wound on her torso reminds her every day.]

I'm getting tired of starting again, somewhere new... )

I've met a lot of people since I got my numbers, at the end of May, two years ago. I've made some precious friends I can't imagine not knowing. I've grown tremendously as a person - I couldn't go more than a sentence without stuttering, back then. I met the love of my life, someone I can't imagine living without; she's been such a huge blessing, and my sincerest hope is that I can keep her safe in all this. If all goes well, we're going to marry this summer. [Is she blushing? Yes. Yes, she is. On camera, where millions of people can see. Doesn't keep the stupid grin off her face, though.] And she's probably going to give me a hard time for saying that. I love you, Lily.

But anyway, it's been a wild ride these last two years. I've had some bad weeks, and some things I thought would break me... but I pressed on. I kept moving forward, because I wanted to see what kind of future I could make for myself. Everyone's supported me as I went forward, and now I want to be able to support everyone in turn. My friends, my love, strangers on the street, everyone. I can come on a little strong sometimes, because I'm passionate about what I do. But I really want to help, however I can. Even if the sky's falling in on us, I'll stand tall, because that's the kind of woman I want to be. And there's no better time to start building yourself into the person you want to make of yourself than today.

[She takes a deep breath, smiling softly.] I know I've been talking for a long time, and I apologize for that. But if you skipped to the end for a short version, here it is: if something happens in the near future, and it will, we'll be there. No matter how bleak things look, believe in us. We'll give everything we have to protect our homes, and our world. Count on it.

[The feed cuts out there. It hits the internet mid-afternoon eastern time, just in time for the lunchtime news reports on the West Coast, for the late evening news in Europe, and the morning shows in the Far East. If you think Winter timed this on purpose, you're right. Shortly after it hits YouTube, it gets posted to the Seedling subreddit. From there... well. Video has a way of going viral when it has something to say.]

((Winter's going to be in front of her computer for some time yet; she'll be reviewing video responses, tweets, comments, e-mail, network messages... she wants to hear the pulse of the world in response to this. Which may not be terribly much, but hey, you never know. Replies to this post can either be off-network and directed at the video (or something like her e-mail), on-network and directed to her in general, in person picking up a Miracle Bouquet Light over the following couple of days in any Echo barrier, or either way and looking to expand her reach in some capacity. Or whatever else you have in mind works too! Positive, negative, supportive, angry, disbelieving, just wanting merch, any response is good.))

[the video, showing two people who haven't been seen on the network for some time: namely, Natalie Tamura and Fuyuka Terasawa. In the latter's case, she appears slightly different, in that she now wears a pair of glasses when before she had none. Bardiche hangs around her neck.

It's Fuyuka who speaks first]


Ah... hello everyone. It's been some time, hasn't it? For those of you who don't know me, my name is Fuyuka Terasawa, and this is my good friend, Natalie Tamura. Several months ago, well... we forgot our echoes, and it seemed our time together was at an end. But it appears destiny had other ideas.

[despite it all, Fuyuka smiles slightly, hand coming up to the pendant hanging around her neck] Bardiche returned to me several weeks ago, and the same was true for Natalie's device. I'm... eager to find out what's progressed in our absence. It seems a great deal is looming on the horizon...

[Thats when Natalie pipes up, practically shoving her face in the camera.] That's why we want to do whatever we can to help! I- well, I wasn't able to do as much as I would have liked, or maybe not as much as I could before... I want to fix that, now that I've been given another chance. With all the people who could be in danger, that has to be our responsibility, right?

[Fuyuka nods in turn to that, smiling at Natalie as she tries to get her to sit back down]

My sentiments exactly, Natalie... it's really great to be back amongst you all.

Who: An alien and you! [This post is also open to returnees!
What: Watching the sky
When: First day of the invasion (29th of April)
Where: Anywhere!

There is a strange phenomenon in the skies, and a large serpent's body has broken through the clouds multiple times today, crashing into the earth and wrecking havoc or into the sea and causing tsunamis or earthquakes.

The air is full with chatter and everyone is trying and failing to explain what is going on. Some say it must be rapture, others speak of aliens. Some say it is a new super weapon of the USA or Russia or North Korea or some other country, others claim that the Illuminati are finally showing their true face. Most of all, though, people are scared and insecure. No airplanes are taking off today.

And here, in the middle of the street or park or wherever you are walking, stands or sits someone and looks at the sky.

Geoff can be found in Lapland, Santarem, London and the Neuschwanstein Area. He holds a notebook and is writing things down in a script that few will be able to read - it's Old Assyrian cuneiform. If approached, he will shut his book and nod at the new arrival.
Badri can be found in Tokyo, London, Locke and the Galapagos Islands. He is sitting on a blanket on the ground and is having a picnic that mostly consists of the local incarnation of popcorn and some sugary drink or the other. He's offering popcorn to all passers-by.
Meredith can be found in Las Vegas and Christmas Island. He leans against a wall and watches the sky, shaking his head in exasperation every once in a while.
Maryann Young can be found in all echo boundaries. She is walking briskly and with determination, yet will stop and greet any numbered that she encounters. She somehow knows who the numbered are so even if you've never met her, she will do this.
The siblings Zhang can be found in every zoo that lies within an echo boundary. They look at the sky every once in a while, but they seem more interested in the animals. They do however not step into any buildings.

Who: EVERYONE IN TOKYO
What: Destruction, politics and purikura probably seriously everyone should get some of themselves and their friends.
Where: Tokyo
When: 4/10 & 4/11


Tokyo: Pink lights over Tokyo. A giant kappa awakens under the city, rises to the surface, and goes on an (accidental) rampage, desperately searching for water: It waddles around in bigger and smaller circles and asks with a thundering voice for directions to the next big body of water. Starting in Shinjuku, the kappa then moves southwest towards the harbour. The search leaves all of inner Tokyo in ruins from being stepped on, only the Tokyo Tower mysteriously remaining upright, if without power (you'll have to take the stairs, sorry). The kappa moves fairly quickly; everything is over in less than an hour, as it dives into the ocean and curls up on the bottom of the Tokyo Bay. The Japanese parliament has an emergency meeting and decides to try and have the military bomb the monster to death as soon as possible. If you want your numbered to show up at this debate or stop the bombing of Tokyo Bay physically, please comment to the appropriate thread.

[Misa is obviously freaking out a little. He eyes are wide, she's breathing fast, and she is newly blonde since she last appeared on the network. But her latest echoed change isn't anything that's visible.]

The lights over Tokyo— something is happening, I'm going home. If anyone is coming and needs a place to stay, my apartment is open to you. It's not very big, but I'll make room for anyone who needs it. Bring a sleeping bag or air mattress if you can. Private message me for the address, and if you have a doppelganger either do it in person or by phone. I don't want any uninvited guests showing up.

[[ooc: feel free to handwave Misa giving your character this information, as long as they are not a doppelganger and we have some previous CR.]]

*It's a video of a man holding a paper sign in one hand, and a tablet with a BBC newsfeed in the other. He's a new face, but an old number: this is the first time he's made anything but a text post on the network at all (doppelganger not included). It's too bad, really; no one has to recognize him to know that the bruises on his nose are recent, but extremely few people will ever realize that he'd once had a goatee that is now gone.*

*He brings the tablet close first, showing that the top article is about one Alicia Kerren. There's a couple of others beside it that are distressingly similar. Next he brings the sign close, and it reads

Has anyone been following the news about this mysterious cancer?
 
I need more information about these cases. I can't be sure until I find out more, but it could be urgent. Does anyone have contacts related to this, or unusually superior hacking skills?

Warnings: D!Cesar is yandere as all get out. There will probably be swearing, attempts at serious violence, and anything else that comes with a kidnapping.
 
The school outside the computer room is silent with  the night's stillness, and computer fan whirring fills the small room. There aren't many lights, but the doppelganger realizes by now that this is normal. He's been here before. Everything is as he expects.
 
The door was already cracked open, and he pushes it all the way, letting computer-screen light spill into the hall. Whether or not the room's sole occupant turns at the shift in sound, Cesar removes the outermost paper from a pocket, shaking it out of its folds. It's loud and out of place in the silence. Permanent marker stares out from the dim lighting in bold.
 
DON'T TRY TO ALERT TONY. COME WITH ME.

I HAVE A GUN.
 
Heavy seconds tick pass. Cesar pulls back the edge of his jacket to show the brand new holster at his waist, dropping the cloth back down when the point has been made.

Judging by what you're saying on this forum, you have found a way to travel between far away places easily and quickly. I have a number of questions concerning this.

[He taps the pen that he is holding against a notebook a couple of times - a habit from having to wait for the full attention of those that he is talking to.]

One, how is it done?
Two, how much time does it take? I have two weeks off school now and my parents are on a business trip, but there's this guy checking in on us every evening at their request, so I have a maximum of approximately 20 hours to travel or he will notice that I am gone. [And yeah, he looks a bit sour at such a limitation.]
Three, what places are accessible?

[A pause, and then he nods.] That would be it. [What is "thank you" and why would you need it.]


action;

[When Feivel appears on the teleporter's platform, he still has a hand up, flattened out as it was just half a second ago against the sigil of the pub's wall, head turned to look to the side in the hopes of nobody having seen him sneak past them towards the sigil but fearing that someone will spot him now.

He almost falls forward when the wall is suddenly gone and there is only air, and stumbles out of the teleporter, catching himself only after a moment and the backpack over his shoulder almost dropping to the ground.

But he manages to steady himself and looks around, quick, sharp glances, trying to figure out his surroundings.]

Hey... network. Your echoes, or pulses, or whatever... do they... normally make sense? Because all of mine seem... I dunno. Very disjointed. This most recent one is like... just a poem! Or something. A very, very depressing one.

[ And then there's a glow on the screen and he looks down, stares, and screeches, flailing, and a glowing rock goes sailing across the room as he tips backwards off his chair to land on the floor. Benedict jumps to his feet with a startled yelp spinning and brandishing a letter opener in his hand before blinking in confusion ]

Y'know, big, metal, sharp, has skulls on the handle?

[He holds up a rough sketch of this for the camera.]

Darn thing just up and left, who would've thought? And I already checked the refrigerator so don't even ask. Apparently that's where we're keeping swords these days.

When she spoke she had a moderate French accent with a touch of German. It seemed English wasn't that strong.]

"Hello everyone... Um... My name is Celine Blanchefleur. I was advised to make this broadcast in English but I can speak French and German as well. I've been numbered for a short while now and I really don't know... anything. At all. Well much."

[She was extremely nervous, though not really distressed. Perhaps she just wasn't used to asking for help, or maybe it was simply the nature of the help she was requesting.] "I thought I might see if anyone can tell me anything. Or be willing to answer some of my questions. Honestly though I do not know what questions I'm supposed to ask. Or where to even start. This is all very new to me."

It doesn't have a thing to do with this not-me over by the castle. He hates technology and doesn't like to talk to people, and apparently this is because things like this are selling huge over the Internet! And have been! For months. There is a whole website claiming it's official. They're hucking hoodies now and cuddly toys. I should sue. I should make them give me a cut. I should do something about the pigeon breeders trying to work out my 'conformation' and emailing me about my measurements.

So he pauses for a few seconds, and keen listeners might be able to hear him sigh.]
He remembers most of us, and that he was a Numbered, but stuff relating to the Network's a no-go. Um, that said...

Purim's tonight. If anyone wants to come celebrate, even if they're not Jewish, let me know. My work's holding an interfaith event in coordination with [one of the Locke City synagogues] in the evening, so feel free to drop by if you're around Locke. Just tell the other interns you're with me.

And kicks his legs restlessly. The only thing the network sees is the youthful pout, short locks of white hair hanging away from his forehead.]

Hanging around the castle is getting so boring again and all you people are being too serious. C'mon, who wants to loosen up and hit London or something? L? That's close to the old stompin' grounds, right? Could be pretty cool. [He has no idea if it's close to Winchester or not and he can't be bothered to look it up.

Who: DoppelRaye, the magical girl squad and anybody else who answers the call.
What: Raye's Doppelganger has gotten tired of wasting time in Germany and wants to meet her other self's loved ones face-to-face.
When: March 1st to 2nd
Where: Las Vegas
Warnings: Probably violence. DoppelRaye being a monster. Possibly to be updated.

Closed
For a time, Raye had been content to spend her time in Germany simply observing the events surrounding her double and those around her. A few in particular had managed to catch her interest.

She ignores the human cattle milling through the streets of Las Vegas, gorging themselves on vice and sin. Senketsu gives a low growl under her black coat and she reaches up to pat the Kamui, recognizing his hunger. The creature's appetite was relentless and she'd soon have to feed him again, their partnership was one based on mutual benefit but counting on the loyalty of a hungry predator was its own level of foolishness.

Not just yet though. First, there's something she needs to do.

She made a beeline from the location of the city's teleporter to the hotel where the Precure had taken up residence. It was easy enough to get in. She was numbered after all, obviously a friend. Making her way up to the right floor, she finds herself outside the door of one Winter Adamas. Without any sort of announcement or preamble she reaches out and seizes the handle and twists. A crack rings out as the lock shatters and she pushes the door open, breaking through any kind of bolt with ease.

Smiling faintly, she steps inside.

"I hope I'm not interrupting anything."

Open
[Another time during her visit to Vegas, a post from her appears on the network with a photo of a Las Vegas street and a text message.]

I'm in Las Vegas and feeding time is quickly approaching. Fortunately, there's plenty of livestock around.

If anybody has an issue with this, please feel free to come and find me.

lovesickkiller: (What a funny story)
[personal profile] lovesickkiller
[Misa has been largely silent since her run in with the doppel Dians, scared out of her mind that they would come murder her before anyone could put a stop to them. The thought still scares her, but as she is currently in a different country (London, not far from the transporter) it's probably safe to show her face without giving too much away. And she wants to show her face. Aside from having a small echo to show off, she can't expect anyone else to be open with her if she isn't open herself.]

I never thought one trip would lead to me visiting so many places... Has anyone else seen the light over London and changed, somehow?

[She holds her phone as far away from her body as her arm will allow for a moment, before bringing it back to her face. The difference isn't at all obvious, but she is somewhat thinner.]

I didn't notice right away, but I lost 20 pounds! I haven't been this tiny since high school. [She giggles, sounding pleased.] Maybe the other-me really is a model, that's weird to think about. Anyway, if anyone else saw the lights and changed I'd like to hear about it!

[She pauses for a few seconds, about to end the message, when something else occurs to her.]

Does anyone on here celebrate White Day? It feels weird to celebrate Valentine's Day and not White day— not that I did anything for Valentine's... but I heard that people in this part of the world only celebrate one.

Regrettably, I'm late to this mess, but where my own double is concerned, it's my hope that I can be of some assistance regarding notable differences in manner and bearing we possess.

I have not personally met or viewed him, but it's my understanding that he dresses like a tourist, eats a lot of bacon, and hangs around Neuschwanstein propositioning passerby indiscriminately.

I really hope I don't need to explain why this makes him, obviously, very unlike me. If there's still some confusion for any reason, he's probably not been recently bashed in the head, so use evidence of that to check for the genuine article.

I am the real Lazarus Lawliet. Not every double is as cartoonishly opposite to the original as mine, so I've taken measures to protect myself for the time being. If you need to meet with me, we can probably work out a way for you to prove that you're not going to try to murder me. If that is your intention, stay the hell away.

Hey everyone. I know things are really complex right now. We finally got past all that business in Lapland and it seems like a whole new problem has cropped up. Right now we're not even sure who is who or what's even going on, and I realize that's pretty stressful.

So, I was just wondering if anyone would be up for doing something to take the edge off together. I'm not saying we let our guards down or anything, and I know any of those doubles of us would be able to see this, but I don't think there's any harm in talking about things that help us relax, right?

...

It's funny, you know. I've been told I'm physically incapable of relaxing more than once, so I can imagine how weird this must feel coming from me. Buuut... I think it'd be helpful all the same. Even if we just talk about the small things, I think it'd be pretty helpful.

[The video flickers to life, and it shows Rakka's face. She appears to be in Neuschwanstein. An odd sort of trend for people on the network recently, making posts while at the castle grounds. It was likely to not raise any particular warning signs, unless you know what this coincidence probably means.

Rakka brushed some hair from her face. It didn't help to improve her fairly disheveled look at all, and in fact might have made it worse. All in all, she didn't seem to be happy, or even smiling. Hey, was that a bruise?
]

Hey, it's Rakka. [There just wasn't as much energy in her tone as usual.] It seems like everyone around here's been losing their minds. Apparently it means that there's clones of all of us running around... but, maybe it just means that things are getting even worse. In a way, that would make sense, right?

[But, honestly, she wasn't sure what was happening. She'd been thinking about what Emi had said to her, about her apparently showing the vampire some kindness. She wouldn't lie about that, would she...? What would she even have to gain, except for a moment's confusion on the Haibane's part which could be a little funny for someone else...]

Dammit... [She whispered with a sigh, expression quickly turning frustrated.] I don't fucking know. It's not like anything in this world makes any sense anyways. It doesn't even matter, does it? [A question that seems to bother her.] I'm trying really hard to figure that out... but I can't.

[And she kills the feed.]

[ there's a minute or two of someone muttering in the worse gutter trash talking Japanese that anyone could ever gutter trash talk in Japanese, intermixed with some heavy nasty words in Chinese and all wrapped up in the kind of accent that makes his words even harder to understand. but at the end of it is a heavy sigh and then, Shou is speaking in English. ]

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm staying in my pillow fort until this all blows over.

[ pillar of the community? wanting to protect people? sorry, he just wants to not deal with dopples at all. oops. ]

If anyone wants to join me, you're welcome so long as you know the secret magic word.

Ah... is this working now? Oh! Hello! Yes! Nice to meet you all! I'm Arnold, Arnold Benedict. Some of you may know my son Liam! Thank you for looking after him, all this time. Just thought I'd... say hi, as it were! I'm gonna be in the area for a while, and it turns out I'm Numbered too, so... yes! Hello!

[ He looks thoughtful ] There was something else... Oh! Yes, folk in the Art Community might recognise me - Benedict Galleries, is, indeed, run by me. We're always looking around for new pieces to show, and I'm hoping to do an exhibition around here too, one day. So! Any budding artists, I'd be glad to chat! I can be reached on this number - [ Have a neat business card with his details ] and if you see me around, don't be shy! I'd love to say hi.

[ And with a wave he disconnects ]

But if you meet him on the street, you would not recognise him )

*Guess who's facing the 'camera' in an empty hallway with a familiar tablet in hand? This guy. Hopefully Cesar won't miss that thing for communicating, because Doppelganger!Cesar won't be giving it back any time soon...*

*Doppel!Cesar gives the castle window (his network connection) a small smile, before putting the tablet's screen right up to fill the feed's vision. The screen has... a power point presentation?*
 
Hello! I'm afraid I physically can't talk, but there's a few things that need to be said.
 

 Who: Tony, Cesar, and Doppel!L
What: Tony and Cesar come to collect 'L' before he does anything rash.
When: Early on during all the confusion.
Where: Germany, starting in a cafe near the castle
Warnings: Doppel!L and his suggestiveness!
Log Closed.

It took Cesar almost fifteen minutes to tear himself away from the teleporter, and in the end it's a reminder from Tony that does the trick. 'This is just great, and all, but weren't you worried about L?' Yes, he was. There aren't so many cafes in the area that they have to search far, but they still have a cellphone out for directions, and the snow is thick enough that they almost get lost regardless. It's winter in Germany.

By the time they finally get to the right cafe, Cesar is half expecting L to be gone. The bell on the door tinkles when they open it, and they're immediately met by warm air and a comfortable bustle of the late afternoon crowd. He stops a little off to the door's side, scanning the room.

Where: Neuschwanstein, Las Vegas
When: February 10th for Misa, February 10-15 for Doppel!Misa.
Warnings: None yet.

[Emi appears on the network again in a video, with of course the usual bearing about her, but looking a bit concerned over recent entries on the Network this week. They had barely dealt with the trouble in Lapland and barely a week after they all get home, something else starts to kick off. She's seen the... other her's Network log, though. As soon as she can get a hold of the original, powered Numbered she can trust, she's going to tell them to get over to Germany and keep her doppelgänger safe.]

It appears there's copies of us running around now. Normally I would have thought this impossible, but there's nothing about us that isn't impossible, is there?

If nothing's done we will be getting more trouble from non-Numbered soon, given the way some of these copies, if they really are copies, are behaving. I don't have to tell everyone that they need to be stopped quickly, yes?

Guten Tag, beautiful people. Greetings from Füssen.

[The man looking into the camera is clearly Lazarus, also known to many as L, but even a cursory glance says that something is strange and pretty wrong. First of all, he's wearing a Hawaiian-print button-up shirt, cinched at the hips with a fanny pack, and he has a camera strung around his neck. He looks like he's going for the "stereotypical American tourist" look. Furthermore, he's eating bacon, and it looks like it's an ecstatic experience for him on several levels. The way his mouth tears at at it, the occasional moan, and the way he licks and sucks his fingers clean, desperate to get the very last traces of grease... it's almost obscene, and definitely not Kosher.

When he speaks, he also makes liberal use of the vocal fry phenomenon, which is definitely a departure from his typical monotone.]


Everyone's working way too hard lately. Come to the castle and get lost with me for a little while? Well... "lost", if you know what I mean, but I'm guiding a discounted tour here in a little while. I'm really anxious to see the Mad King's bedroom, can you imagine what he got up to in there? I'm sure there are stories, and stories, and that they're not even close to being finished.

[If you're skipping contacting him through the network and have sought him out in person, he's just as happy to see you... if you're over 18. If not, prepare for some condescension.]

sorry didnt mean to send another text

[Easily a lie--Arthur had something he wanted to ask about, but years of parenting and a mean brother told him that opening himself up in any way like that was a sign of weakness. As quickly as he decided he wanted to voice it, Arthur clammed right back up and decided to just put his shoulders up and deal with it.]

This is Aaron Strider. Some of you know me, and some of you who do know that I had a number that disappeared over a year ago. It's back.

I've caught up some on what's been happening with the new locations, the new animals, and the kidnapping - don't think I didn't see that, Toushirou. It's something I never thought I'd ask for a year ago, but if anyone's been updating Emmanuel's new-number guide or has put together one of their own, I'd appreciate a glance at that all the same.

Now, with my pulses back, I have a talent that I didn't put to its best use in 2013. I may be able to use it to pinpoint where the underground animals are, to find them while they're still dormant. I'm willing to do that for the new locations. Maybe the areas can be evacuated.

[Thank god this is text. To be completely honest, those animals scare him shitless, but over text, no one can tell.]

I have another question.

Has anyone else noticed physical effects from using the teleporter?

Wow, a secret network! This whole story keeps getting more and more mysterious!

[She had never imagined finding something like this so soon after arriving in the States. Though nearly breathless with excitement, Misa attempts to keep herself in check and remain at least a little bit professional. Beaming at the discovery is impossible to cover up, but she manages to avoid blurting out the first question that comes to mind in favor of a thought-out response.]

Hello, my name is Misa Amane! I’m new here and I’d love to have a conversation with anyone who has been here a while, or has information about what’s been going on. The news has been pretty crazy, but if you want to share your stories then I’m here to listen!

[There, that sounded pretty good, right? She hopes that no one too weird answers, but at least with this number she doesn’t have to meet them face to face right away. Besides, an insider scoop is definitely worth the risks. This is going to get her name on the map for sure.]
