[Taking a break from exploring Lumina Cloth, Pit sits down by the wayside to fiddle with his Relic, looking at the device with no small amount of confusion and-- as he's prone to with no Goddess currently present-- talking outloud to himself.]
So... what is this BBS thing anyway? I seriously don't get it at all!
[After spending a long time puzzling over the hints posted on the board, Shirou's managed to find himself at Lumina Cloth. It's a marvelous town, really, and of course who wouldn't want to explore it? So that's what Shirou's doing.
Shirou's standing in front of the Arena signup table, occasionally asking the NPC a few questions about the Arena. Care to join him?
Anybody want to try to take on the Arena with me?
ooc: backdated to about 4-5 days after the hints were first posted.]
[ Some days start out kind of bizarre, some days stay kind of normal
needless to say that bizarre is pretty much the default here, but it can always be upped a bit, right? Not that there is need to worry, the extra weird today is mostly harmless!
When you walk around the town you'll see different posters pinned to buildings, walls, trees? maybe even trees. Also: to people's backs, because someone has no shame.
They look like regular wanted posters really, or as regular as it gets here. There is a text ('Tulip Killer, not all that dangerous! Needs to be caught as soon as possible' or 'Lost Puppy, not properly house-trained yet. Would be happy to have him returned to us!'), a probably unfamiliar member address as well as a self-drawn picture above that. Amusingly enough, both types of posters show the same thing: a pretty boy with smooth features and light-shaded hair.
The likeness is easily good enough to recognise one (1) Hope Estheim for those who know him.
So, what will you do? Ping that number? catch Oz while he is pinning a poster to something/someone/you? ask him how he keeps those things to actually stay stuck?
or be sane and walk away from this nonsense ]

[ There is a trick to dealing with temporal displacement, or whatever the fuck you call it when you were in one place and suddenly wake up in another. That's generally not to panic while putting on your thinking cap and figuring out what the heck happened, or you know, calmly asking those around you for help. Unfortunately, Karkat doesn't really do calm or rational when shit goes wrong.
Probably because sleep isn't a luxury afforded to Karkat on the best of days, even before Jack's destruction of Prospit and Derse. He'd spent the entire SGRUB campaign awake, not once taking a break to get some much needed rest. He probably wouldn't have even slept afterwards, had Kanaya, Tavros, Equius and the others not had a lapse of sanity so grand (debatable, since he doubted any of them had two working brain cells to rub together most days) that clearly the solution to enabling Tavros to walk again was to chainsaw the lower half of his body off and grant him a pair of robolegs, all while he was standing innocently by. Unprepared for the flood of orange-brown blood coming his way.
Fucking idiots, the lot of them. It had been a wonder any of them had survived their time in the game, one of Gamzee's retarded miracles that would remain unexplained. It still hadn't been enough to save them. He hadn't done enough.
Needless to say, waking up with a group of unfamiliar, unconscious bodies in a room he'd never seen before was a blaring exhortation horn to his think pan that something had gone horribly, inexplicably wrong. Well, wronger than things were previously. He takes deep, gasping breaths in a useless attempt to keep his cool, deciding to abandon the not-quite-corpse party and head for the outdoors. Looks he's making an effort to harass the first person he sees that will give him the time of day.
Poor you. ]
HEY, YOU. YES, YOU, THE SLACK JAWED, DROOLING BUFFOON I'M CURRENTLY POINTING MY CLAWED, TACTILE APPENDAGE AT.
YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK WE'RE DOING HERE, WHY WE'RE IN THESE RIDICULOUS OUTFITS, AND WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO EVERY LAST ONE OF MY BARELY TOLERABLE FORCED TRAVELING COMPANIONS OR I'M GOING TO FLIP MY SHIT. I WILL FLIP MY SHIT SO WELL AND SO LONG THAT IT WILL BE CHARRED TO A GRILLED PERFECTION, AND JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT CAN'T POSSIBLY GET ANY BETTER, I WILL COVER IT WITH THE MAYO OF EXQUISITE BATSHITTERY AND FORCE IT DOWN YOUR GAPING FEED CHUTE-

[Jane tiptoes around the gate, eyeing it like it’s about to jump out and attack her. With all her ties to her various allies (and potential murderers) cut, she’s feeling a little off-kilter. Whether this is the thing that brought her here or the thing that will get her out, she doesn’t feel like jumping into it will have any bearing on her tight-assery. After all, it’d be just ludicrous to jump headfirst into it when she doesn't know what it does.
Unless her dad’s in there.
Oh shit, what if her dad’s in there?!
Jane grips her cheeks (the ones on her face, geez!), groaning a little. Whatever is she meant to do now?]
[What's white and gold with feathers all over? This guy, groggily wandering about Mac Anu like he's just woken up from a very, very long sleep. ...Or maybe not very long, considering this is the kid who'd set a personal record for sleeping three years straight.
Not on purpose, of course
Pit stumbles into a group of NPCs as he wobbles along, rousing some complaint and concern-- 'Is he alright?' 'Watch where you're going, clumsy!'
He doesn't seem to mind, or even notice, mumbling to himself as he checks over his Relic.]
Ooogh... I just had the biggest... longest... weirdest dream. Feels like I've been out for ages.
...'Least I'm not... [yaaaawn] A ring... this... mumble grumble ...
The center of the Mac Anu square was now occupied by an obnoxiously loud young man, one who appeared to be an Adept Rogue but still had an appearance that'd make you think of a typical high school delinquent thanks to that pretty cool pompadour he was sporting. Most of the passing by npcs and players seemed to avoid him due to the fact he had been shouting in awe at how amazing everything looked-- it was like being in a game!
But after a few initial minutes passed of him being awestruck and also discovering his clothes were completely different, Gentaro found the beeping Relic that was on his person. "Eh-- What's this?" He moved it around in his hands, trying to...well, figure out what exactly the thing was. A phone? "Looks like something Kengo'd make!"
A few more minutes pass as he stared at the Relic.
Then...well, a few more.
Gentaro had no idea what the thing was or how to use it. This was clearly a good start.
[You might notice Kariya yelling at one of the NPCs, his face pretty red from frustration. He looked like he was about to explode, to be honest. If you get closer, you can hear him say things on the lines of "Will you answer the question I actually asked you???"
After a few more minutes of this, he throws his hands up in the air and storms off.
I wouldn't get in his way if I were you, he's pretty pissed off!]
