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: EVERYBODY. That means you. Especially you.
What: Ice bucket challenging. YEAH!
When: Anytime, really. Consider this a catch-all! Start your own threads - in-person, on the network, off the network... It's all good!
Where: Wherever buckets filled with ice water can be found.

[Gabriel stands on his patio in a loose white shirt. Those who have been to his house before might have noticed that he's moved some of the plants to make a space. Those who haven't might notice the bucket that he's placed beside him.

That's right. He got tagged. It's time for the ice bucket challenge.

He tuts, flicking his hair in mock annoyance, although he's unable to erase the smile that twitches the corner of his lips.

And here I was thinking I'd get away without being tagged. Thanks for nothing, Ellen. [The mention of one of his off-network friends might be enough to tell some people that he's recording this to post across social media as well as across the Network.

Taking a step back, he picks up the bucket, takes a breath and grits his teeth, and then dumps it over himself completing the challenge.
] Fuck oh fuck me. [With the wet shirt contest that he's just started some people might be inclined to take him up on the invitation... he hops about for a moment, trying not to over react, but at the same time] Fuck that's cold!

Aah, ah, right, who was I going to tag, who hasn't been tagged yet. [He had actually thought about this before hand but he's somewhat distracted now.] Right, Nicola, Sam and Beki, and Thorir and Julien. Oh, and Geoff Benwick, Badri Barkley and Meredith Chownyk.

[Yes he did just challenge the aliens alongside a few of his friends, off network and on.  No he's not sure what the consequence will be, but why not?  It's all for a good cause after all.  He gives a slightly shaky smirk and a wave, and then ends the video so he can go and change.]

Who: Geoff Benwick and OPEN (to Locke City characters in the main log; phone-in thread is open to all).
When: June 1st-4th, afternoons.
Where: By Locke's City Hall.
What: One of Locke's visitors from beyond the atmosphere would like to make acquaintances of some of the city's other less-mundane occupants.

Spend your busy days with monsters and your quiet ones with aliens. )

[OOC: If your character cannot, would refuse to, or just plain wouldn't meet with Geoff in person but you'd still like him to speak with them, you may have them call in if you like.

Remember that speaking with Geoff directly 1. leaves a person under the influence of a supernatural "charm" effect which makes him seem trustworthy by default, and 2. grants eligibility for a plot Echo.

Who: Characters in Locke, most pertinently the characters chosen for the takedown, and Geoff Benwick
When: May 31st, Saturday, around 4PM
Where: The streets of Locke City's urban areas
What: A car monster is on the loose in Locke, rampaging the streets, destroying property - and showing no further consideration for the citizens of the city.
Warnings: Violence, death.

[ OOC: For an overview, please see this plot post. Evan's player is organizing a failed takedown attempt here for anyone interested! Remember that there are two human casualties as a result of the car's rampage, including Network teenager Kaworu Nagisa.

The car monster is rampaging without concern for damage, either to itself or to anything around it, but it is avoiding damage that will take it out of action. Ramming property, causing car accidents, and leaving the road entirely to continue its race along the streets are all kosher. Geoff Benwick is in aerial pursuit, attempting to coordinate with reincarnates and law enforcement alike.
