(A pack of wolves is surely a welcome sight? No? They smile and nip at one another, showing teeth that can easily rend a man apart.)

Robb, do not tease your sister so! (Sansa holds out her hand, walking into frame. The largest wolf breaks free of his free-spirited family and trots up to her. He is rewarded with fresh morsels of meat and a good ear scratch.)

Arya, I have not forgotten you. (Another wolf - this one smaller and darker - edges closer to receive her treat.)

Jon, Bran, Rickon, you too. (Each wolf takes after their namesake in some way: Jon is white, Bran has reddish-brown fur and Rickon is the smallest of the pack, barely out of the puppy stage. Sansa removes her gloves after feeding them and drops a kiss on Robb's head.)

Do not stray far from the temple. I like hearing you sing at night.

[Nami wastes no time. As soon as she finds herself back at this familiar place, as soon as she learns who her shinki is, as soon as she has the opportunity, she opens up her device to the BBS and fires it up to record the following message of utmost importance:]


WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!?!?!?!?!


[So we need answers, are we clear on that? Good. Next items of business! Tone shifts from outraged to worried.]

Zoro, are you still here? You better tell me you’re all right or I'm going to kill you!

Yata, where are you? I’m coming to find you.

[ Good morning, people of the Far Shore. D2 just woke up, which is easy to tell because his hair is in an obvious sleep-caused mess and he's still in his pj.

He seems disgruntled, but he got a bit of a surprise when he woke up. ]


Did anyone lose a military uniform in my bed? [ He pulls up the pillow that's wearing the jacket, to show part of the white dress uniform, extra visible against the green he's currently wearing. ] Or is it some form of prank thing? I'm pretty sure it's a US Navy issued uniform, so if anyone has a clue.

[ If he wasn't still tired and freshly awake and if he had not been startled awake and if he had had some coffee, maybe he would joke about it. (He probably would have, but, he's not a morning person.) ]

----------

I finished deciphering the data I collected last month. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, my detailed findings can be found here.

The coordinates within the portal turned out to be a bit more complicated than I was expecting. I was only able to complete a partial scan at the time, but I've already identified well over 100 vastly different spacetime coordinates within the data. It's possible that my Dynamo suffered an undetected malfunction during the scan due to the disruptions in spacetime, but it would be incredibly unlikely to see such clear and varied results due to an error. The more likely explanation is that the portal leads to a space connected to multiple dimensions at once, causing my Dynamo to pick up on numerous coordinates simultaneously.

Unfortunately, this means it's difficult to determine what coordinates belong to the "hub" dimension, let alone where any of the other coordinates go. Dimensional travel of this scale is also beyond what I'm used to. I'm working on adapting my technology to be able to visit or remotely scan these dimensions more efficiently, but using my current methods it would still take a miracle to find any of the places or people I'm looking for, not to mention an absurd amount of energy for even a single trip.

So what I'd like to know is, who here is familiar with interdimensional travel and open to the possibility of collaborating?

More specifically, I'm looking for anyone who has experience with initiating travel or observation between separate dimensions and/or setting the coordinates. Technological methods are preferred, but I'm willing to try and work with magic if I have to. That includes any gods whose domain might include something like this, even in an abstract sense. I'll take whatever I can get, provided it's of use to me.

[Morning, Far Shore.

It's rare to see Lavi post up on the BBS when it isn't under anonymous, but after waking up from a wonderful sleep and regaining a memory, maybe it's time to greet the morning with a song, don't you think?

So, Lavi starts to sing the song that's been in his mind all day (and yes, he is a lovely singer, okay). It goes on for a few verses before he abruptly stops and then:]


Anyone wouldn't happen to recognize that, would they? It's been stuck in my head all morning and it's beginning to get annoying.

[ It's early in the morning when his device starts buzzing, the vibration tips it over on the coffee table and turning on the recorder showing Mikoto sprawled out on the couch, a hand carelessly thrown over his face as he ignores the buzzing when something odd suddenly starts playing: ]


[ Midway through, a sleepy-faced Mikoto stirs awake and just stares at the thing with uncomprehending eyes and when it starts to loop in an endless cycle, red suddenly spreads across his body and the lazy god turns around, facing the couch, curling in on himself as he lets out a flood of that red aura knocking down the device, tv and just about everything in the basement as he goes back to sleep as the recording goes dark. ]

[ So after waking up from a vivid dream that he's becoming more and more convinced isn't a dream at all, Yata sits in the barn at Roy's temple late this morning having a minor panic attack. Unsure what he's supposed to do about this and when the first person he would normally go ask is the one person he can't go ask, he does the obvious thing. At least for him.

He flips open a video feed to the BBS. ]


So, uh, I know this has been talked about on here before but it hasn't really been relevant to me before now... [ Which, in Yata-speak, means he didn't pay attention. ] ...but.

What do you do if you wake up and suddenly remember something - or someone - from before. And you're pretty sure they don't? I mean. That's bad, right?


(( OOC Note: Both Fushimi and Yata have woken up with the same memory, Fushimi is just the sort to freak out about it privately while Yata is not, hence this post. Both characters may be tagging back replies in this thread however, and both are open to contact or action logs as well, just specify what/who you want in your starter ))

[Kairi has a blanket around her shoulders with stars on it and in her hand is a note. Slowly, she puts the note down and pulls the blanket up a little more with one hand.]

Thank you - to the people who've come by Hajime's temple to see me. That's where I've decided to... go, I guess is the best way to say it.

[Her smile tilts up a little.]

It just seems so sad... that I started to remember more about them now that they're gone. More about them and where they hopefully went home to.

'There are many worlds, but they share the same sky' - that was part of the note. The... one I can't seem to stop reading.

[Then she lowers her head.]

I've responded so many times when shinki talked about losing their gods... I never thought...

[She rubs her nose a little and sniffs, then lifts her head back up again.]

But Hajime's a great friend and I'm glad she's my goddess now. I'm glad we were friends first. It... helps.

[[OOC: Feel free to handwave your character having stopped by to see Kairi either at Forrest's temple or Hajime's. Sora & Roxas disappeared on July 30th in-game, so it's been 2 weeks. She was at Forrest's for one week and Hajime's the second week.]]

[ The recording turns on showing Mikoto slouched on a couch with his bare foot tucked underneath his leg. His jacket's gone, leaving him in a white tee. His brow creases in irritation, his mood clearly lousy. In the background this can be heard. Unfortunately, his play so far has been more like this. ]

How do you play this thing.

[ He's so bad, he's reaching out to all you folks. He's got a promise to keep, only problem is, he sucks at Mario Kart. ]


[ ooc; On the last day of Obon, in order to get one of the ghostly children to cross, Mikoto promised to play with his little brother in his stead. Problem is, the kids favorite game is Mario Kart and Mikoto just picked up a controller for the first time today. ]

[ The phone turns on in the dark of night, and the first thing that comes across is simply breathing. The occasional shuffling noise accompanies it. Then there’s a crash. ]

Chikusaaaaa, did you redecorate while I was gone?

[ It’s clear that Axel’s a bit drunk. Also that he’s trying to contact Chikusa. Also also that he is not in his temple. Especially when another voice chimes in. ]

[ A frown subconsciously mars his mouth at the shinki’s name as the loud crash pulls Zero from the depths of his coma. He wakes instantly, sitting up automatically in the middle of the bed with a hand pressed to his temple. A headache dulls his senses but not enough to hide the intruder. ]

Breaking and entering is a crime you know.

[ Axel has to pause a moment to figure out what’s going on. Clearly, the simplest solution… ]

Wait… hat thief asshole? Why are you in my temple?

[ Axel is confused. ]

Get out.

[ Axel’s voice is still confused. ]

… What? Isn’t this my temple?

Get out. [ The covers are thrown aside. ] Or I throw you out. [ And he’s up on his feet only he’s been in a coma for almost two weeks and his legs can’t quite hold him, so the moment he stands he falls. ]

[ As Zero falls, Axel attempts to catch him, attempts being the operative word. They both end up on the floor, the phone’s camera catching them in the pre-dawn light. Axel lets out a groan, but then starts to chuckle. ]

I still don’t know if I can say this, but GODS am I ever drunk.

[ The moment they fall, Zero automatically twists using the god to break his fall and at the confession the less than happy vampire glares at him before grabbing the spare anti-vampire cuffs from his drawer and handcuffing him to the metal headboard. ]

You’re going to tell me who you are and what you’re doing here.

[ As he starts his interrogation, the recording times out. ]

Say you are a shinki... and you have lost your god. You have waited for them to come back... but you have begun to realize, perhaps they never will return. Now, you feel empty... and lost.

But then, a god who has watched over you since you arrived here takes you in. You care about them a great deal. You want to ask if they will allow you to be their shinki...

But do you do it, if the chances are slim that they will accept? Is it best... to spare yourself the embarrassment... and pain... of being rejected? I am currently living with them... so I also fear that perhaps if I pose the question and am rejected... perhaps they will not want me to stay with them anymore. I would like to think that they are a better person than that... a kinder person... but what if I am wrong? What if I am just fooling myself into thinking otherwise... due to my own loneliness?

What would you do?

[Video - BBS - August 7th]

Heheh! Looks like the heavens decided to apologize for gettin' me all wound up about Mamori a little while ago. I woke up to check my e-mail alerts for new MGDP merch, and there was a program I've never seen installed on my laptop. Somethin' called Singaloid TiKi. I don't remember buyin' it, but it's pretty awesome - one of those vocal editing software packages. And there was even a video already installed! Check this out!

[Barry's already loaded the video onto his phone, so he just switches the feed over to it. Denizens of the Far Shore are treated to a video of what is ostensibly a virtual idol programmed by the software, but the quality of both the video and the sound are so good that it's hard to tell she's not a real person. The actual video he posts doesn't feature the cutaways or the other characters - just Tiki herself, singing the song on a dazzling virtual stage.]

Not A Mirage World by Tiki )

Pretty amazin', huh! I'm gonna play around with it some more and see if I can come up with some more songs for Sparkle Motion. Remember to come see us at Obon - our show is really gonna blow you away!

[Action - Sparkle Motion - later that day]

Okay, everyone! We've only got a little bit of time left before the big show! Let's give it our best at practice today, and bring this thing home! And if anybody wants to try and write some new songs or come up with some new choreography...

[On the backdrop of an airy room with wooden walls and wide windows, a woman with long pink hair and a welcoming smile raises the hand that's not holding her phone to wave at the screen.]

Hello everyone, and welcome as well to the people who've just arrived today. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Maria Cadenzavna Eve, and Barry and I were discussing an idea a few weeks ago that I thought I'd share with you all now that this spirit activity's been stirring up the last few days.

Anyone who enjoys music, or would just like something to relax themselves with after the last few days, I'd like to invite to a karaoke night on August 7th. You don't have to think yourself good at singing - just have fun and be passionate, and make it a good night for everyone. In my world, music is something that brings people together and heals hearts, so I hope we can do the same here with something as simple as this.

I'll be posting the address of the studio below. Feel free to arrive anytime between 5PM and midnight, whatever suits you and anyone you'd like to bring. And if you have any questions, please ask them here.

If you are professionally interested in music or performance, too, please look out for me and Barry on the night. We co-run Sparkle Motion, one of the talent agencies here, and we're always looking for new performers.

Thank you, and I hope to see you there.

[With a bow of the head and another wave, Maria ends the video. A few seconds later, the address of the karaoke studio is posted beneath it.]

From: Chikusa Kakimoto
Date: August 6


-------------

[Chikusa actually meant to make this post a while ago, but.... Well. Things happened. Whatever. He's making it now.]

This is for the benefit of what new people who have arrived and all those who ignored Kairi and Yukine's warning here, but I'll repeat it all. It's apparently necessary.

There are three ways to get blight:
1. Touch a person that is blighted.
2. Touch an ayakashi.
3. Feeling guilt.

The first two can be washed away with holy water from a shrine or temple. The last can only be cleaned up reliably if you apologize for your guilt and repent to your god. If you don't and only continue to feel guilt, it will build up.

Shinki carrying too much blight become ayakashi. This should be enough of a deterrent but it's repeatedly been shown not to be.

In the event that a shinki doesn't repent and a god doesn't want to release them, an ablution can help. However, not only is it extremely painful for both shinki and god alike, it requires three separate shinki with extremely powerful borderlines and knowledge of the ablution incantation.

I have taken part in three ablutions in the last two months. I have no faith that people will do the sensible thing. So I'm offering myself for any future ablutions since an ayakashi on the loose in the Far Shore would be annoying. I guarantee that my borderline is reliable and that it won't matter how the targeted shinki reacts.

Just repay me for having to deal with such a troublesome and annoying thing.
