[ There are sounds in the background of this post remarkably like airport noises, periodic indecipherable loudspeaker announcements and a low general din of many tired, irritated voices. ]

Hey, know what I hate? People who disappear. That's fucking rude, right? There one second, gone the next. My roommates are off the hook for that, by the way, they all showed up again. Now the hook is aaaall Hisoka. I hope that asshole's proud.

So anyway. [ Some shuffling noises go here, as she rearranges unseen luggage. ] Looks like I got a something for a lucky someone! So, who wants to come to Vegas? All expenses paid! The only requirement is that you don't suck and I don't hate you. Also, less important, that you're either good at gambling or hilariously bad, I'll take either one.

[Another day comes to an end, waning daylight spilling across the horizon when the screen comes to life, but Josuke doesn't stand in front of the camera. Instead, those watching will be offered a flawless view of the ocean far beyond where he stands. The golden Florida sun hangs low in the sky, its vibrant glow transforming the waves and the clouds both into a collection of colors any artist would struggle to recreate on canvas...

It's quite tranquil, and only made better by the silhouette of a breaching dolphin in the distance, its form rising above the surface of the water and sending up a large spray as it dives back down and beneath the rolling waves.]


Jotaro Kujo has gone home.

[Josuke's voice, and it sounds heavy. The teen remains out of view, content to let people watch what he is watching himself. It's better this way. Better that no one needs to see his pensive expression, that how this affects him remains telltale only in the words he chooses to speak, and the tone of voice with which those words are delivered.]

He was Ported out last week sometime, but...with everything that's happened, I thought it might be better to wait and see just in case. Not sure how many friends he had in this place or who they all were, but if you're among 'em...I guess you don't gotta worry too much. He's safe.

[More or less.]

I guess that's it.

Oh, uh...Hazel? If Jotaro's left any stuff behind, you should probably let me or Jolyne know and we'll take care of it. Thanks.

[You get to enjoy the ocean scene a little longer as Josuke falls silent. The clouds drift lazily overhead. The waves whisper against the shore. Slowly the sky begins to darken from a bright magenta to a velvety purple. And with another breach of the dolphin like a sendoff, the teen finally disconnects...]

Is hurting someone the only way of getting the job done? Wolverine said pain goes around -- it's a circle. If you protect others, you have to take on their pain to protect them . . .

but is that the only way? I admit I am . . . scared. Of getting hurt. I fought a dragon and I was scared because . . . well for a lot of reasons.

But then the dragon died and people lived and that's a happy ending.

. . . Isn't it?

Okay, so this superhero gig? Best. Thing. Ever!

[Each word is accompanied by animated hand gestures and unnecessary head bobbing. Better get used to it.]

Yo, this is frickin’ awesome! I mean, I wanted to defend the law and all, but this? This is better than all the wet dreams I’ve ever had! And, phew! I’ve had some great ones. Madonna? She may be old, but that chick can get it.

[Why is he gesturing to the viewer like he won an Oscar or something? What the hell is his problem?]

Some guys wouldn’t be caught dead walking around in spandex and a pair of tighty-whities, but… You can’t deny that this bodacious badonkadonk-

[Asher sets the device on the table in front of him, doing a twirl for the camera. Oh god, is that a booty pop? It is. Someone stop this man.]

[So everyone's been having a fun time as kids or younger versions of themselves, running around and enjoying childhood again, right?

Wrong.

Some people wound up aging up- a lot. Like almost fifty years worth of aging up. One of those individuals is Joseph Joestar, who for the first few days was originally very, very upset about this. Screams of "OH MY GOD" echoed throughout the festival, as well as various tugging at his own face in an attempt to rid himself of wrinkles.

But now he's finding the benefits. See: Joseph at an IHOP happily enjoying a stack of pancakes- and his senior discount.
]

Being old kind of sucks, but you get a discount on like everything! And I can buy alcohol now, no one even cards me! And everyone holds doors open for me, and give me their seat on the bus… Being old isn't half as bad as I thought it would be! And I still look pretty good for an old guy. I'm nowhere near as sexy as I was at nineteen, but I don't look half-bad!
fridgeflower: (my conception was shady at best)
[personal profile] fridgeflower
Do you think that it's possible for people to be inherently bad? Not all the way, necessarily, but like maybe there's a bigger chance of messing up if you come from something bad, or like you've got some kind of latent seed planted deep that could burst someday.

I don't think that's true, if you look at it objectively. It still makes me really nervous sometimes, though, so I wonder if some part of me thinks it's a real possibility. I can't shake it off, so I get frustrated with myself sometimes.

I'm sure other people must feel like that. I'm sorry if you do.

[Most of the screen is dark. There is, however, just enough light that one can make out the outfit of the individual standing in front of the video feed with their hands on their hips. He's dressed in some stupidly bright neon yellow and green outfit, but the shadows definitely cover a majority of this individuals face. Nothing out of the norm for a guy like him.

But when he opens his mouth to talk, it doesn't… sound quite like Dio, to those who would know his voice well enough, but more like if Dio suddenly had a cold.
]

I bet you are all wondering… "why would Dio suddenly make a post like this?" But the truth is...

[And then the individual in the absolutely awful outfit steps into the light a little more- AND SURPRISE! IT'S NOT DIO.]

You thought it was Dio… but it was I, JoJo!!

[Joseph says, pointing a thumb towards himself and then proceeding to laugh like a moron. Of course, to anyone who bothered to look at the nametag of the person who posted would be able to tell right away this Joseph to begin with, but... who cares?]

Dio's gone! Completely! All that was left are his clothes- like Satan dragged him down to hell without them. I'm thinking about burning these after I end the video, anyone wanna join me?

To those imPorts both new and "old..." welcome.

I apologize to everyone with whom I've recently had an unfortunate confrontation. Jonathan, Hazel, Dorian, Josuke, as well everyone to whom I simply made an uncomfortable or derogatory comment or otherwise left in distress. It isn't my nature to be needlessly violent. I will say it was beyond my control, however that does not absolve my actions. Again, I apologize. You can punch me if you like; I'm far tougher than I appear.

All of that said, I'd like to add a bit of information to the mix at this point. As is the case with the others afflicted, I now carry a handful of memories from a woman called Vicky McCall.

It seems she was aggrieved by the feeling that imPorts could do more for this world, and choose not to do so. This complaint was made in Castle Rock, Maine, while she overlooked a map of the area.

"We've got to up our ante, Andrea. Make our name known now, it doesn't matter. We couldn't stay in the shadows forever, anyway. We'll carve our initials on their foreheads if we have to." - these words stand out in my mind.

Additionally, she seems to have been close to a woman called Wendy. One of their conversations lingers in my memory - their words are without context but she seems to have been asked by Wendy to leave a dangerous organization - I assume this is the Hornets, of course. Wendy expresses that she is tired of "this," and suggests running away. Vicky refuses, as they would be killed, and states that they must be in Maine.

It's my understanding that this Vicky remains at large. If my memory is to be believed, she is currently in Brycha, Michigan and employed at a veterinary clinic.

I apologize again. I hope this information is of use and can, in some small way, make up for the past few days.

Shit, shit, SHIT...!!

[That is not playfully pretend panic, that is serious this is so not great panic.]

I can't find it—my wallet! I retraced my steps and everything like five times, and it's fucking gone!

[If you attend Heropa High and are in any of Josuke's classes, you may have noticed that he wasn't there today.]

Last place I remember seeing it was yesterday near the marsh. I don't know if anyone's familiar with the area and wants to help look, but...

[He half wants to say please, but feels like he sounds desperate enough.]

It's a green leather bi-fold! Not real big, but...there was some real important stuff in there!

[More important than his cash (although that's seriously important, too—he had about 1/3 of his paycheck in that thing) is all of his personal ID and the picture his mom.]

...just let me know if you find it, alright? I...I'm going to keep looking.



[OOC: Alas, recovery of the wallet will be impossible! An evil clown took it and gave it to a thieving spider! :( Life is hard for a JoJo.]

[The communicator ID reads: KURAPIKA.

No more, no less.

In fact, the screen itself remains blank and static. There is no awkward lens zoom, no topsy-turvey camera juggling, only a soft and velvety blackness and the clean glow of that digital tag.

For whatever reason, the person addressing the network has chosen not to show his face. He hasn't chosen not to speak, however. Perhaps because the written word often draws more attention?]


I understand this line of communication is only minimally secure at best?

[He is leery as he begins: disappointed, but not deterred.]

In that case, I'll keep this brief. [As if he'd speak at length unnecessarily.] I have two requests.

[Evidently someone of the no guff variety.]

The first is a secure channel for which to discuss the war state and all it entails, should such a thing exist, as well as the names of any imPort authorities concerning the matter.

And the second is...for someone to confirm for me whether there are any imPorts here by the names of Gon, Killua, or Leorio.

That's all.

[A sharp click signifies the end of the transmission.]

[personal profile] trickstar
'Sup, guys and gals!

[And look here, Joseph is actually using video this time. Definitely taking up all of that video screen with himself. Seems like the egotist is back to normal.]

Remember that last post I made? Yeah, let's pretend that never happened. Thanks. ... Except you, Josuke. You're grounded.

-Moving on, I got a point to be here. So, there's been some debate on that Lunatic guy, and accusations about Yuri Petrov being guilty, right? Well, he should be defending himself over this, but he hasn't really spoken up, has he? This is a pretty serious accusation, if he was innocent, wouldn't he have said something about this? Anyway, we'll never get answers unless we ask.

So I've got a solution! I know where he is.

[Joseph holds up a photo to the communicator's camera, and sure enough, there's Yuri Petrov in the shot. The photo shows Yuri sitting in what looks like an office building… one that's obviously taking some serious damage. No real clues on where that building is… at least not in that photo.

But that's not the kicker. The kicker is Yuri's clothes. The familiar colors of blue and green and white, to those that know Lunatic's uniform. Although they're damaged a bit and the lighting isn't perfect, it's pretty clear that those clothes are close enough to Lunatic's outfit for an arrest warrant.

Joseph leans close to the camera, a hand to the side of his mouth like he's sharing a secret.
]

Pretty incriminating if you ask me.

I've got other photos here that show me more on where he is. One of my powers is that I can track people down. But I'm only gonna tell the location to people I'm sure are just planning on just arresting him. No point in more people winding up dead, even if they deserve it. Sound good?

Oh, and you can start thanking me any time now.

[Clears his throat. This is going to be a difficult post to make]

Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth speaking.

[The young man’s voice is clear, but stiff, with a harsh edge to it that hints at the anger bubbling underneath his skin. He represses this rage, attempting to remain composed and professional]

Earlier I received a tip from a confidential source- [Sorry Kay, he's not going to drag you out in the open, it’s too risky] - regarding a potential lead in the Lunatic case.

[A deep breath as he steels himself. This is a damning accusation to make and he knows it, and there’s no going back if he’s wrong]

Yuri Petrov, imPort advertising manager, has two files, with two different sets of abilities… and two different aliases. According to one, he’s been graced with an immunity to alcohol, but according to other? Pyrokinesis, with the ability to control and manipulate blue-green flames, specifically. Sound familiar? [A note of bitterness seeps into his tone, but he moves on quickly] And, if that’s not enough to convince you, there’s his alias, printed right on the file. Lunatic.

[A short pause follows, just enough to let the information sink in for any potential listeners.]

Unfortunately, my source only caught a mere glimpse of the files, but when I tried to confirm the discrepancy with Petrov, he was nowhere to be found. And, as much as I wish we had time to gather more information, we cannot afford to wait any longer for a response! If anyone listening has further information regarding Petrov, Lunatic, or their current whereabouts, I implore you to share anything and everything you know. With Lunatic on the move, it could mean the difference between life... and death.

[With that, he ends his little speech, and waits for a response from his fellow imPorts]

[OOC: And here’s the grand IC reveal! This post isn't strictly for conversations with Edgeworth. Feel free to talk to other characters, threadjack, and make IC plans here. Edit: And to clarify, this post takes place in the evening!]

Look, the state-funded housing is nbd, but do they seriously expect me to be a superhero AND a high school student AND a part-time "pharmacist assistant?" Like, is that a joke? [ Both the heavy work load and the crack at her being a literal science experiment. ] Uncool.

But yeah, whatever. If you live in House 20, then hi, I'm your new roommate or whatever. If you don't then, uh, mind your own business?

What the hell is business casual? All business is casual. You talk, you trade, sometimes you fight. It's casual.

But I went into work and they said I was too casual. It's a school. That's sort of a business, right? Doesn't that mean I'm business casual? Or school casual? They didn't tell me I had to dress for that.

This place is stupid. None of you make sense.


[It's tempting to leave it at that. Short and sweet, to the point. Kinda rude. Possibly discouraging.

He should probably say something else.

[When the broadcast begins, the young man onscreen (sporting a perfect pompadour with not a single strand of hair out of place) tucks away a comb and reclines upon the front step of one of the government houses, presumably the one he's been assigned. He seems to consider for half a second more what he's going to say, one eyebrow cocking upwards, a strong indication that there's a question brewing, while his lips pucker in a vague showing of frustration.]

Alright...

[Here we go.]

So, I'm digging all the free stuff that people seem to wanna hand out in exchange for photographs with us and whatever, and the hoverboards are really, really awesome. That said, I might actually like these new phones even better, though? They're pretty great! Slim, stylish, lightweight...pocket size. Anyway, all that's nice, but something's been bothering me and I've gotta ask...

What the actual fuck is up with these glow-in-the-dark tattoos?

[His jaw sets stubbornly, blue eyes fixating on something that lies out of view of the camera. Probably the tattoo in question.]

I mean I know what they're for, or what we're being told they're for, but like...

Shit, is this even legal?

[Actually, he's a hell of a lot more concerned with the fact that he wasn't even asked if something could be done to his body, especially as he can't fix it. Talk about invasive. Makes a guy wonder what else was done without his knowing.]

And on that note...I'm kind of curious about this whole registration deal! Anyone got a solid argument for it or against it? 'Cause right now I'm right in the middle and uh...from what I hear, that means my roommates can put me out?

What kind of asshole would do that, though?

Anyway, that's it. That's all I gotta say!

I hear back home that is all sorted though. I guess now is as good a time as any to think about it. Even if my options would be more limited back home.

[Given what his price is for keeping his promise to Alphonse. He's considering it worth it, even if that leaves him feeling unsure and lost at ideas on what to do beyond assisting as best he can in Al's recovery back home in the immediate aftermath of it all.]

So. Give me some ideas? What do you guys have for your resolutions?

I guess I've been gone a few weeks. I didn't mean to, I'm sorry. I really wanted to stay. This would have been my first Christmas with friends.

[Another sniffle though this one's scrunched up and breathed in. He's steeling himself. As much as he can.] But since I wasn't here I want to know about everything that happened! [Within the next minute he's slapping something firmly, leaning closer to the microphone so that it crackles slightly when he speaks.] Tell me about all the Christmases I missed!
