[Doppelganger!Stefan here, in the Alesci house with a sleeping doppelganger!Xander on the couch behind him. It's been a hell of a month, let him tell you. He's holding a beer bottle, but he doesn't sip from it as he regards "the camera."]

Okay, "Stefanizo," I get that I owe you big time, but actually working your job was not part of that IOU. I don't do crowds. [Now the world knows how Stefan mysteriously got his shifts "covered" while he's in Tokyo.] You're welcome, by the way, for compelling all the babies at Sunday school. Perfect little angels, right?

[He finally takes a sip of his beer.] More seriously - since we keep talking about preparing ourselves for the worst, I might as well cure some of my boredom. Who's interested in learning hand-to-hand combat?

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.

[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.

[On screen is Danny, shoulders squared and looking ready to make a huge announcement. Mostly because he is. He takes a breath.]

I...haven't been honest with you all. Not for a long time. The truth is, I've been keeping a lot of secrets.

I like to act like everything is all okay, but it's really not. I just act like it because I hope that if I pretend like I'm fine, then it means eventually I will be. Or even if I'm not, then at least I try to keep it to myself to keep others from worrying about me. Because that's supposed to be my duty as a "hero."

[Yes, Danny does actually use fingerquotes when he says the word hero. If you listen closely, you might also detect some annoyance in his tone.]

That's why I went missing for over a month without telling anyone except for leaving some notes behind, and why I act like I'm just some regular happy teenager who doesn't worry about--

[Danny turns to the left and leans warily but doesn't stop talking. His volume grows gradually until it's a full-blown scream while he braces himself.]

--about his whole family being dead, or about being homeless, or turning into a huge scary evil monster of destruction, or all the people he's ACCIDENTALLY KILLED, OR THE FACT THAT HE'S BEEN CLO--oof!

[Another Danny dives across the screen from the left and full-on tackles the first Danny. The camera shakes and lands on the floor, revealing one Danny pinning the other to the floor in Danny's now dusty and furnitureless old bedroom. The post ends abruptly.]

And you're a big ol' wuss if you don't jump in- hey, don't push me! (splash) )

[B | 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!

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 was supposed to be her day off. Celine had been woken that morning by a call from her boss, asking her to come in to cover for two waiters who had called in sick. This always seemed to happen on her days off. She finally agreed after some coaxing, dragging herself out of bed and through the drudgery of preparing for the day. As much as she didn't want to, the extra money would be welcomed.

She arrived just as the doors opened, already in dressed in her uniform, checking her appearance one last time in a small mirror and plastering a fake smile on her face as she entered.

She would be handling two sections and the unusual busyness kept her well occupied the entire day. It was two hours before closing and she was already exhausted, relinquishing her post at the front to another co-worker so she could get off of her feet for a few minutes. She sat down in a chair in the back, fidgeting and twirling her pen between her fingers as she listened for the bell above the door. Fortunately things had died down for the most part. There were just a few checks to give out to the few remaining customers. Then she could go home-

Unfortunately, the bell did ring. She thought it might have been a customer leaving but the sound of faint voices reaching her ears a moment later. Celine didn't get up for several more moments, tucking her pen back in her pocket. Hopefully this would be the last customer for the evening.

Besides, the top's still covered in scales, and the belt's just like what he wears with his Aquaman suit. He's showing off that cape and striking a few poses.]

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."

[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.

[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.

[There's a pause, and the camera pulls back to reveal where he's standing. It's clearly some manner of room, but it's one that's very sci-fi. Albeit a rather 70's sort of sci-fi. It looks too, like something that John had echoed back, for anyone who might have had the privilege of setting foot into John's police box.]

I'm aware that hidden rooms are, generally, something that might be common. But I wouldn't have expected to find one inside a clock. Unless there's someone here who might have found one in a similarly unlikely place? Or perhaps recognizes the general layout?

It's some copy of me, but something must have happened to him--because, he isn't right. His eyes are gold, not green and he sports black armor, like some sort of demon.

[Steady and unfettered by the idea of what he was suggesting, Arthur called himself out.]

Whoever you are, I know something's happened to you which has made you 'wrong'. The only thing I can do is get rid of you so you don't cause anymore damage. So, I'm calling you out. [His serious look had turned more malicious, anger showing in his eyes.] Be a man.

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.

[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.

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?

[Reclining back, smirking at the camera is... Lily? It at least rather looks like Lily, but there are... distinct differences. Her hair is much looser than Lily's normally is, and a bit darker. She wears something quite unlike Lily as well - a form fitting black dress. Where has she gotten everything for this, much less the computer she's speaking from? Well, it may just so happen that she has a means of easily swiping stuff from places without anyone being any the wiser.]

Oooooh, there we go. Hello~ It's been a few days.

[She leans forward, propping her chin lazily on one hand, and chuckles.]

Aren't all of you miserable fucking losers just the cutest. You know what I'm tired of? Being one of those losers.

Scrambling around the globe for a bunch of ungrateful, snot nosed little brats... and for what? Just what has any of that gotten me, gotten any of us?!

I'm done with that bullshit. We have all of this power, and we just cower in the shadows!

[Her smirk turns sadistic, and she flashes her teeth.] It's high time we did something much, much more fun with our power...

What do you say~?

[OOC: Needless to say, this is Doppelganger Lily, who does not yet realize she isn't as such, especially since Lily herself hasn't posted to the Network since the Lapland rescue, since the doubles do not initially realize they're copies. As per the Plot Post, her Number is indistinguishable from Lily's own. The real Lily won't notice this immediately since she's busy hovering over Winter after her injuries in Lapland, but she WILL be along in this post... after I've had some fun, first.]

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.]

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.]

[What's up, Numbered? Have a little news from Lapland. As those who are investigating the child disappearances should be aware of, Toushirou and Dani wound up going missing. Well, here they are. Safe and sound . . . okay well. They're not hurt, anyway. And they have some information.]

Okay, first of all, we're fine; we got caught on purpose to find the kids.

[Toushirou, predictably, doesn't sound very apologetic. But when Dani speaks up? Yeah she kind of does.]

We also knew no one would let us but...

It was the quickest way to find them and it's done. We don't need any grief over it.

Yeah. We found the kids and other things. The kids say that this place is Mt Korvatunturi. Look it up or ask the other people.

There's also a giant block of ice they're trying really hard to melt, but I can take care of that. We can hold things until you get here.

[Dani nods firmly.] Don't worry, we have this covered! Don't worry about it too much until you get here.

[Aren't the children reassuring, folks?]

So, I got to wondering.
I can understand wanting to get as far as fuck away from all this shit even if you don't remember any of it happening to you.
And wanting to keep the people you care about out of danger.

I've seen plenty of people talk about family and friends who dropped off the network.
How many of them are still around? Still in touch?

I realize there may be other matters of importance being dealt with, but does it disturb no one else that the world as a whole appears to have lost memory of the days between January 2nd and 5th? No one has spoken of it. [AKA, the kid with an eidetic memory is missing days in his mind and it's really bothering him. Also, way to not introduce yourself, Nathan. A+]

[Private to Lazarus]

[But Nathan does remember a few moments of that time, during which he had seen the number tattooed on Lazarus' hand. That at least has stayed in his mind properly.]

I do, however, remember one thing of January 2nd. The question is, do you remember anything of that day yourself?

By now, travelling through the teleporter to the Neuschwanstein area had become regular for Emilia, the attitude of the people here being a major factor in her visiting the area.

It wasn't long, though, before she encountered one of the wolpertinger, this one being some kind of cross between a bat and a swan, essentially a bat with swan wings and fur that reminds her of that of a wolf. So far, though, it was being docile towards her since the first time she saw it and was simply following her around.

She even got an echo out of that first encounter, though... Vampire hearing, apparently.

"A lot friendlier than Vermedi, I must say..." Contacting the network through her phone, a video feed was quickly set up by the vampire. The first thing anyone will see is Emilia's face, before the screen is turned to show the wolpertinger that's just decided to land on her shoulder. "This is a wolpertinger, according to the locals... I think it's safe to say these are actually pretty harmless... I admit I'm curious as to why that is, since the creatures in Locke and Vegas... aren't."

[Lily looks... disturbed, to say the absolute least.]

So, the "Numbered Special Commissioned Group" contacted us today, and we've got a... potential problem.

We know that there have been lights appearing over multiple new locations lately. One of them was Lapland, which Winter and I briefly visited around Christmas. [It was cold.]

Nothing much seemed out of the ordinary then, but now? Now we've got a problem.

Since around the time of the lights appearing, children from Lapland and the surrounding area have started to disappear. There's no ransom, and no clue why. However... two preschoolers who were hidden away at the time were able to tell the authorities something: They saw an old man with a beard they're saying looked like Santa Claus, and his helper, was...

[She purses her lips.] Ever seen "How The Grinch Stole Christmas?" Him.

[She shrugs; they've encountered weirder, right? But she still looks immensely bothered. The involvement of children is assuredly doing that.]

Here's where we come in: They want our help. Numbered help. This is clearly connected to us in some way, and those of us with the NSCG have at least proven cooperative, so I guess that helps. We're to be there by the 13th, in Rovaniemi, and they'll take us upstate from there to begin searching and investigation. We're told to bring friends, so...

Please. Come with us. Help us. If we can save those kids... [Or even if they can't, and they can just discover the cause, which makes her shudder.] We've got to do whatever we can. We have the power to, right? We have to do something.

[Written in his cell phone, Arthur broke his period of silence as innocently as one ever could. He was seated on a big cushy chair in front of his cell, which was leaned on a table in front of him.]

I'm between job applications and my hand's crampin' up as a result. Anyone want to hang out, tonight? I managed to pass for 21 at the package store last night, so, y'know--

[He stared dumbly at the screen, realizing he said this aloud and where folks could seriously hear him and remember.]

We got a bunch of stuff. Er, y'know... Dependin' on what anybody'd like to play, right? Emi's house is mostly empty so it wouldn't be a big deal if we were a little loud, y'know?

(OOC: This is a prompt prep for an IC gamenight! Details will be provided if your muse is interested!)
