[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?

One last party

Who: Arnold (and Benedict) and OPEN!
Where: The Benedict Family House in Locke
When: Now, and til... whenever I guess
What: Arnold's doing an art exhibit, and opening it with a massive party. Because that's what you do when you're idle rich, apparently. Numbered get in free but it *is* open to the public. Once the party is done, the main room of the house will remain open until he gets bored and closes it to have an exhibition elsewhere.

He's wanted to do an exhibit ever since he came to Locke, but what with one thing or another... )

[Video]

[There's Hajime, looking human and not at all like he's in the mood to be trolling people as a giant bug. He should probably get some sleep, even if he claims he doesn't need it anymore. He revealed way more than he ever wanted the public to know in Japan, and now he's got to deal with that on top of remembering a bunch of very unpleasant things at seeing Tokyo a wreck.]

Three things: one, I'm done with the Lord of the Bugmen crap. I'm not taking that form again. Not if I can help it. It's more than just the whole everyone knowing who I am thing, it's...more than that. I guess you could say I know too much about it now. It's...I don't want to say it was ever fun, but it sure as hell just got less appealing. I've got a different armored form to fight with, and I'm going with that instead.

[He runs a hand through his hair and looks worn out.]

Two, so I'm famous now, I guess. People keep bugging me for stuff, they had to shut down the restaurant for a couple days because the media was kind of going nuts. How do you even deal with that? Do you have any idea how many exterminators I've had calling wanting me to do endorsement deals with them? How do famous people do it and not lose their minds? Or tear a paparazzi's arm off? And three...

[He leans forward a bit and actually looks a little anxious.]

This is a long shot, but...does anyone know someone named Kazuma Kenzaki?

Mission - Pancakes / Backdated to the morning of April 3rd

Who: Tony and anyone awake at Willow Ridge after the Kidnapping Incident
What: Demon be hungry, so that means pancakes for all.
Where: Willow Ridge kitchen
When: Morning of April 3rd, after Nathan's rescue
Warnings: Possibly some recollections of violence, but otherwise only pancakes. Maybe eggs. We'll see.

Strawberry, or blueberry? )

[open] You always wanted a visit, right?

Who: Feivel and/or Nat and YOU
What: Just opening doors from the ghost zone into places and then?????
When: First half of April, pick your date!
Where: Anywhere!

Exploring the ghost zone is great. It's a weird and new place and a certain set of siblings is having a field trip. Most of the time, they're together, but sometimes they split up or one of them goes alone.

They peek out through almost all doors that they find, unless Nat's Force senses tell her that something bad is behind the door (and then sometimes Fe opens it anyway). Maybe they look out at a street where your character is just standing, but maybe they open a door right into their bedroom too, or something else entirely...

((Please make a note in your subject line regarding if you want to encounter Feivel or Nat or both of them))

[Closed] Between where I'm going and where I've been

 Who: D!Cesar, Nathan, Tony, potentially anyone else living at the school.
What: D!Cesar's going to kidnap Nathan for his plans to get at Tony!
When: Today or yesterday
Where: Locke!
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.

one part closed, one open

Who: Richard & OPEN
What: Things before endgame
When: 25th & 27th March
Where: All around! See headers.

PARTIALLY CLOSED; Tony Sparado | Park | March 25th

Read more... )

(ooc: open to any observers who want to catch him and/or Tony afterwards)

---

OPEN; Business District | March 27th

Carefully juggling a cup of coffee, a plastic bag with a few essentials he grabbed from a nearby general store, and a newspaper, Richard's attention had been caught by the news stories scrolling across the display of televisions in an electronic's store about five minutes ago and he was still standing there, watching the ticker bar roll by and reading the subtitles as they flashed up on the screen.

With the situation in Neuschwanstein getting worse (that tower looked like it was going down any day now), the death of Alicia Kerren and the subsequent expulsion of the American ambassador from Brazil didn't offer any better news.

"Well, shit," he muttered to himself, taking a sip of coffee. "World's goin' to hell in a handbasket."

(ooc: any time between the 25th and 27th is also open to anyone wanting to contact him via network or his cell phone o/)

video; + action option

[The boy that peers into the feed is a bit scrawny for a fourteen year old and dressed in a jumper that reads "To Boldly Invent What No Man Has Invented Before". He adjusts the camera of his laptop so that it lets him sit comfortably before speaking up.]

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.]

Closed - Secret Mission: The Hunt Begins

Who: Doppel!Tony and Doppel!Aaron
What: The beginning of the Santarem monster hunt.
When: Backdated to Monday the 23rd.
Where: Various locations around the Amazon rain forest.

Where the wild things are )

video;

[Saretha sits as she often does when addressing the Network. She looks prim. Proper. Subdued and yet fully attentive and with an expression that appears as if she is outright demanding respect, whether or not she gets it, without saying a word.

However. There is a difference.

The camera is pulled back. The shot is wider.

Standing behind her is... also Saretha. Both appear functionally identical, right down to the Kamui worn by them. The only difference is negligible, and yet stark - Saretha's face is impassive, unflinching, while with "Saretha"... she currently wears a decided smirk, with a look in her eyes that foretells a danger all too real and far different from whatever Saretha herself offers.

Saretha, sitting, the real one, is who begins to speak.]


Do not be alarmed. I am not be coerced by my "other" here, and if you know me even remotely you know such a thing would be laughable. I am in no danger from her, not at present.

She--

[The doppelganger clears her throat, side-eyeing Saretha.] We really should make an attempt to distinguish ourselves at this point, my dearest Saretha. Satsuki will do, I think, yes?

[The doppelganger has a look of sick amusement in her eyes, while Saretha's jaw visibly clenches. She shoots a glare, and then continues on.]

She has given me an idea of how her and the other "doubles" have been standing in terms of perspective. Upon your inception, you knew not what you were. Nor did we. This led to a certain... level of misunderstanding about your intentions, I believe. Or yours about ours. Yet, between what they have experienced earlier in this month, and what Young said the other day... not to mention when I met her in January... and what Dr. Smith proposed to us before his Numbers stopped responding...

I was already reaching a state of clarity about what we are facing.

All... [Hn.] Satsuki here has done is verify that.

[The double smirks. Saretha gives her a look as if threatening to slit her throat.]

The initial monster, the snake, only woke upon the interference of the first alien. "Tiny." But... to what purpose? To what end? That alien obviously knew why. The way Young spoke before, these creatures are not things that were suddenly transplanted here. No, they have most assuredly been sleeping. Waiting.

The pink lights. The echo boundaries that result. The monsters, and their "offspring" - be it the snake's scales, our doubles, the Santas and Grinces... US. The way Young spoke of everything, of our souls, their souls, and everything that ties them together... All of us are connected, and not necessarily by way of the aliens.

Yet, Young seemed rather surprised we have not hunted down these doubles to kill them. Or perhaps she was disappointed that we instead stopped the Santas and Grinches in their goal to defrost whatever lay under Lapland.

Or maybe... both.

We know Benwick has been manipulating us. I know now why I trusted him where I trusted no one else in the world. It was very fortuitous that they set Young before us to speak, because that has opened my mind rather profoundly.

Tiny did not waken the snake to destroy us. Not then. No, the snake beneath Locke City, the shellfish in Las Vegas... those were never their weapons against us.

On the contrary, Young spoke very much - especially during the meeting with the Secretary of Defense, Lazarus, Shou, Benwick, and msyelf - as if they were beings to be destroyed. Aliens invading our planet, our Earth, that we know have been manipulating us. Manipulating the world, as is evident by Benwick's constant presence in the political limelight. Yet they... want us to destroy these creatures?

Tiny was no rebel.

Neither the monsters, nor their offspring, are our true opponents.

The aliens have been making us do their dirty work all along, setting us into a position where we would take out forces that could withstand untold damage. That could obliterate entire armies if roused.

We and our doubles share a common foe. And, I think, especially after everything that Young has said...

So do those monsters.

second first choice (video)

[The image on the screen ripples, almost as if whoever is using it is interfacing with the Network via a reflection in water. A white (grey?) horse is looking down and although she doesn't open her mouth, one can still hear the voice of a middle-aged woman. Specifically, a bossy, maiden auntly sort of woman.]

:Attention: my rider is missing. He's a young human who answers to the name of Shou and unfortunately, I was back to being a normal horse when last I saw him, so if he told me where he was going, I wasn't able to understand him.:

[The horse sighs.]

:This is awkward to admit, but I seem to have spent what felt like a long time not being able to think properly or communicate. If anyone could fill me in as to what I have missed, I would be very much obliged.:

[Action]/[Video]

Action for Tony )

[Video]
[Hajime's doppelganger is upset. The thing about being a giant bug disguised as a human is that once you go bug, you can't go back to being a human without the one playing card the real Hajime has, and the doppelganger's far too scared of the real deal to hazard trying to steal it. So have a giant bug somewhere outside the castle, slumped on a bench in an exaggerated, swooning position of woe. He's also managed to find an eye-searing Hawaiian print shirt that fits a giant bug, even if there are spikes poking through it at odd angles. At least he's left a convenient visual cue that this is not the real Hajime.]

So what are you supposed to do if you can't really go out in public without making people scream? I'm so bored.

[He's whining. There is so much whining. Un-Hajime-like levels of whining. Whining that would put a five year old child to shame. Whining that just might draw the real thing to kick his ass again.]

And I'm hideous.

[He's also available to bother in person for anyone near the castle, because it's not that hard to figure out where he's theatrically sprawled out.]

[Video]

Saaaay, I know I've been pretty quiet lately but with all the garbage between the doppelgangers and everything I kinda needed a break, you know? Anyway, has anyone seen a sword wandering around?

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.

[He puts on a slightly disapproving frown, but at this point it's fruitless to argue it.]
espigeonage: (ЖWill come from dark and carry me away)

[Video]

[Julien's talked to the media and some of the public since changing, but he doesn't want to show his face on the Network. So the feed is of a made bed.]

People are making money off my image. Look at this! This was at Hot Topic! [A pair of long pink toe socks, still attached to the cardboard hook that had held them to the rack, are flung onto the bed. The toe tips are white and the legs are patterned with big dark pink 'scales'.]

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.


I need a drink.

2nd Puzzle | Video (Action for doppels at Neuschwanstein Castle)

[The face that pops up will only be familiar to a couple of the original Numbered, but many of the doppelgangers should know it. That's right, folks; it's doppel-Nathan. Who seems to be . . . looking upside-down into the feed. Anyone at the castle can find him lying on his back on a bed, head bent backward over the edge while he speaks into the phone on the floor. 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. Hey, it's all just England, isn't it?]
