[Somewhere deep, deep in the crumbled, abandoned remains of what was once the slums of Merry Widow, past a half-collapsed armory containing the charred and broken bits of disturbing weapons from a bygone era, there is a rickety old house surrounded by a high wire fence. Perhaps once warm and welcoming, the building now holds all the nostalgia of a bombed-out schoolhouse in a forbidden and forgotten war zone.

A hole has been cut in the chain link fence, just large enough for a person to pass through. Beyond it, the entire wall of the building has been taken out, and the inside is rank with mildew and mist. Rotting books, pictures, wallpaper, and less identifiable substances have seeped into the surroundings, left to decompose where they fell years ago, the sad reminders of a life ended tragically quick. Even the bandits (shady, violent criminals that have made a territory of the remains of the city) and the vagabonds (dusty, homeless wanderers with sticky fingers who hide in the cracks) have left this area well enough alone. It's too dilapidated to safely worldhop straight in, and too far into the ruins to be reached by car or mount. It seems impossible that a wheelchair might have come this way, but if one carefully examines the dusty ground between the jagged chunks of concrete, tire tracks (and deeper dragging tracks) are faintly visible.

There are more tracks inside the house, criss-crossing the filthy floor and the even more filthy remains of old carpets. There are signs that the stairs have been used as well -- not as recently as the tracks, but sometime after the house fell into disrepair. A year or so ago, perhaps? The door at the top of the stairs hangs drunkenly half-on, half-off its hinges, and the massive, echoing room beyond is dark and in complete shambles. The rest of the building is hardly any brighter, half-buried as it is in the debris of the surrounding city. The depressing shades of gray give it the feeling of being frozen forever in some terrible moment in time, sealed off from the outside world of the living. And for a place that was once so filled with music, it is now stuffed to the seams with deadened silence.

It can't possibly be healthy to live here.

For all intents and purposes, nobody's home, and nobody has been for a while. But under the grime, some of the water bottles and garbage look newer than the rest, and there's plenty of nooks and crannies in the former music academy that are large enough to hide a person...]

What happened?! it shouldn't have-- it was just a trigger! It wasn't supposed to

there was no weapon

I'm not a weapon I'm a trigger and it shouldn't have worked without the weapon

All those people

THIS WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!!!!!!



((Good luck trying to get a coherent answer out of her, guys. She'll go progressively crazier for a bit and then take off somewhere where she hopes she won't be a danger to anyone. Hakuba, she'll be stealing your car (and yes, she'll find a way to work the pedals). She'll leave a note saying she left it with Stir in Zaza so that it doesn't get stolen.

Also, she's under the impression that she killed way more people than she actually did.))
dressedinmelody: (;)!!!!&))
If I never see another feather, it'll be too soon. Hate gods. Thanks for worrying about me, Kyon, Daisuke.

Kaito, Aoko, are you ready to go? It might take a while to find the nomads, so we have to leave before noon. Hakuba and I are already packed.


((Alize'll be bringing a special foldable outdoor wheelchair made for going over sand and rough terrain.))
dressedinmelody: (talking even though they can't talk)
I really, really hate gods. Like it wasn't bad enough when they first showed up here. Now there's even more of them. And what was with that one idiot guy who kept saying hockey is better than basketball?!

Okay, Kaito, Hakuba! This is a list of all the places on my world I know about. Just tell me which ones you want to go see first. And get Aoko and Akako to look at them too!

Blue Hawaii - It's this coastal city up north. A lot of people go there for vacation, but it's pretty boring.

the White Night Desert - A huge desert that takes up most of the middle of the continent. Supposedly only the nomads know how to get through the whole thing.

the City of Corpse - On the far side of the White Night Desert. Mostly demons and ghouls live there. I heard their new prince just got instated.

Sungria - There's a lot of mining done there, and it's mostly deserts and badlands. Kind of backwards, too. Like a western movie. Hakuba, you need to get more of those by the way. They're fun.

Aviation - It's a city south of the White Night Desert. They deal in electricity, and it's where the cat people live.

Rusty Nail - Near Widow's Kiss. They're really popular for their medicine and the Guardian Bird. The chief surgeon, Doctor Uryan, is really skilled. I've met him before.

Moulin Rouge - Also near my hometown. They're the funeral district to go along with the medicinal one. It's a really big city, though, and a lot of people visit it. There used to be a Love Tax, but I heard it was lifted a few years ago.

Czarine - The floating City of Ore. I don't really know a lot about it, except that you need to watch out for the Tovarisch.

Pompier - Pretty far north. They're known for their artists, and their paints and colours. The alcohol's supposed to be pretty good, too.

You guys've already been to Zaza, of course. There's no way we're going to the City of Thieves, even if I knew how to get there. Which I don't.

And then there's the ruined cities. Reviver, Orgeat, and Rocket Town. And Merry Widow.



((She's deliberately not mentioning Adonis because she wants to take Hakuba there sometime as a surprise, because she knows he'll like it. Last strike is unhackable except for uberhackers, ie. gods.))

Guess I should offer to get masks for everyone like last year. I'll have to get Jordan or someone to worldhop me back home.

. . . It's sure been a while since I've been there . . . I wonder if Eyguebelle's changed at all. Probably not.



[Private -- hackable to those with the necessary computer skills]

I don't know what to tell him. Either of them. I don't know how to talk to him, I don't -- I don't even know if we can be friends. It was bad enough having him lose all his memories that first time to Yuuko, but this -- I know it's still him, but what am I supposed to say?! "Sorry, I can't hang out with you because every time I look at you I'm reminded of everything you forgot"?

I can't do that to him.

And the stupidest thing is that I actually feel better talking to him. It was just a few sentences! I've been with Dyme for almost a year, I shouldn't -- it shouldn't be this way. The whole thing will just happen all over again, exactly the same as before.

Sometimes I wish Jing had just stolen me away and been done with it.

[And hello, large mecha piloted by Jr. dropping in for a visit. Good thing the TARDIS has a garage somewhere in its labyrinth of rooms, or the landing might have been a bit awkward. Alize thanks Jr. and heads off into the hallways, carrying her bag.]

[Has no idea how to get to the control room, so hey, let's try the quickest method for finding people.]

HARUHI!! I'M HERE! WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU?

No I will not lay down
I will not live my life like a ghost in this town
I am not lonely
Swear to God I'm just alone
I'm back on my feet
I can just close my eyes and forget everything
My house is empty
Every memory blown away

Oh the sound of the wind
Through my bones makes me laugh
At all the bodies I kissed and never knew
Oh the sound of a lover's sympathy
Falling down to the floor
Just barely out of reach
From me

No I will not go back
Every word that's been hiding inside of my head
Is running blindly
Look behind me nothing's left
I can sit in a room
I can hear myself breathing and be quite amused
My life is simple
Like the wrinkles on my skin

Oh the sound of the wind
Through my heart makes me glad
For all the ones that never knew my name
Oh the sound of a lover's sympathy
I had to go, could not stay here
They were always out of reach
From me


I'm going to New York. And I'm staying there.

((Quick hiatus break~ Can't promise I'll be too swift on replies.))

[locked SO hard. She can't stop uber-hackers from getting in, but they will be very unwelcome]

I hate this. It wasn't anything like this with Jing. Or even when Gramps . . .

I don't know if I even want to start over again. If Dyme isn't Demyx, what's the point?!

. . . I still . . . I still have to go see him, though. I told Demyx I would. Maybe we'll be friends, but . . .

. . . but it won't be the same. I don't . . . I don't know if I could fall in love with him again.

I'm sick of losing the people I care about most.

I can finally get rid of my chair today. Komui said I can use crutches from now on as long as I'm careful.

Thanks so much for everything, everyone. ♥

I was able to stand up for longer today. I'll be walking before the end of next week! Just watch!

Demyx, can we go swimming again sometime? I think it really helped.

*is waiting in her room in the Order, wearing her regular outfit again and doing her usual leg exercises off the edge of the bed. Is currently working on regaining mobility in her ankles, humming under her breath while she does so*
dressedinmelody: headshot of Alize from King of Bandits: Jing, looking wide-eyed and startled (when did he...?)
Alize wasn't a particularly vivid dreamer.

Usually her dreams were disconnected things that made no sense, and when she woke up she was usually left with some kind of leftover feeling rather than any clear images or memories of what she had dreamed about. Even staying so long at the Black Order hadn't changed that, although every time she woke up she expected to be in her room back in Widow's Kiss, and had to remind herself each morning of where she was.

So waking up in a weird, blue-gray monochrome world that was completely unfamiliar was more than a little confusing. )

Haruhi, I've got our room. It's number 308, at the Anonimo hotel. You can come whenever you want to, I've reserved it for the whole two weeks.

And you were right, boys are stupid.

Hey Haruhi, Demyx! I found some masks for you. Let me know which one you want and I'll get it for you.

Demyx, I found these four.

And Haruhi, you can pick one of these. I'm not really sure what your outfit looks like, so I found different styles. The second one is the most expensive, just so you know.
