[ The feed starts with both Sabriel and Lirael sitting on a couch, the first looking quiet and collected as usual, while the second can’t help but fidget a bit, golden mechanical fingers entwined across fleshy, pale ones. Lirael isn’t entirely sure the device is working, even, but if Sabriel says so… ]

So, is it working? Should I say something?

[ She squints at the camera, not yet convinced. ]

Yes, it’s working. Go on and say hello. [Sabriel nods encouragingly, smiling a little.]

Everyone, this is Lirael, my sister.

[ She’s not quite convinced, but Lirael sighs and waves, once. ] Hello. Yes, my name is Lirael. I have arrived recently to these lands… wherever they are supposed to be.

[ Eventually she’ll have to ask for a map, because nothing makes sense. ] You have my thanks for taking care of Sabriel. I’m glad to find her well.

So make sure you take care of my sister just as well. She didn’t grow up in Ancelstierre, so she’s not as familiar with technology. [Sabriel tosses an arm over Lirael’s shoulder.] And she may not look it, but she’s actually much younger than me. One of the Porter’s odd tricks.

I don't look that much older, I'm only nineteen... [ Lirael is about to complain about how she’s technically the older sister here, but can she really argue with such a Big Sis half hug? No, she can’t. So all Lirael does is nod and smile shyly. ]

A-anyway, that would be all. How do you go turning this th--[ Aaaaaaaaaand she turns it off. ]

((ooc: Lirael and Sabriel will be responding separately.))

A survey question of sorts. Say you don't get on well with a friend's other friends.

[ No this isn't about anyone in particular, just take his general meaning. ]

How do you navigate that without cutting a friend off from yourself or anyone else?

[ When the video begins, it's just flowers. A whole room full of flowers. And somewhere in there, is Raina who is wearing floral print which is pretty much like camouflage in this room. And it's not just this room, either. Raina had filled her entire apartment with flowers. The things one does when they're trying to distract themselves from sadness. ]

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd devote my time to making up some fresh bouquets.

[ She gestures at just some of those fresh bouquets before turning the camera toward the kitchen to show....even more flowers. It's like she's a hoarder. Or if not a hoarder, then definitely obsessed! There are a freakishly large number of flowers. ]

I can make any sort of flower, any color you want. [ The camera is back on her and she holds out her palm to display her ability. A warm pink glow starts at the center of her skin before a light white and gold rose grows from it, fully formed. Raina picks it up and adds it to a bouquet she's currently working on, tying it together with a pretty, gold ribbon. ] And if you can get me a good enough description, I can even make flowers that you might find in your own worlds and not here. Unfortunately, you won't be able to plant them and grow them in this world. But I could keep them alive for you.

[ She sets the bouquet aside and glances toward the camera, plastering on the best smile she can muster -- but even she can't hide the tinges of her depression. ]

So, I'm offering customized bouquets starting at five dollars and going up from there depending on how complicated or elaborate you want them. All proceeds will go toward ImPort Cellular Research, so you're donating to a good cause.

[ And then, maybe a bit more of a pointed comment. ]

It's always good to show the ones you care about how much you care every now and then. Our time together in this world can be so fleeting.

Hey, guys! I know some of you are still in recovery mode right now after all that craziness, so I'll try to keep this short and sweet, but I have a very serious poll for everybody who has a second.

[Ruby gives a pretty good impression of someone who's in the mood to smile brightly for the internet!]

So! If you had a few days off--from work, from hero stuff, from your criminal enterprise, whatever--and you were looking for a place outside the big city to just relax and forget it all for a bit, which Porter town would you rather do that nearest to? Like, which one has the nicest views and atmospheres and "quaint little villages" and stuff you'd love to spend a quiet weekend taking in, in its surrounding area?

To my constituents, but also the citizens of the greater imPort community. I fear what we have had a most ardently fearful event, with the loss of light, and I assure you that we in the Ambassador's office of De Chima will be doing our utmost to find not only the cause, but also to implement a method as to better communicate in such a repeat of the event.

But as we must soldier on, I do ask you, if you should please, to answer some questions for me if you will. I should be glad of the replies, even if you think them most unreasonable, and so I must ask you to conduct your answer with utmost honesty. I should be grateful for any assistance you should bear me.

As always, I am yours in service, and will gladly hear any words, be they good, or bad, with as much humility as I am able to bear.

Most gratefully.

Name:
City of residence:

1. Did you find yourself in severe danger in the events of the loss of light?

2. Did you easily find aid in the form of shelter?

3. Did you easily find aid in the form of protection?

4. Did you easily find aid in the form of medical services?

5. Should another incident like this happen, would you like to be a part of a non-registration based network, maintained by the office of the Ambassador, to aid in the assistance of other imPorts and native citizens?

6. If yes to the above, please state your skills and your powers, if relevant.

[With a bowed head, the man on screen acknowledges his audience. His features are sharp, his smile disciplined, but however cleverly disguised his inner machinations, even on camera there is an unmistakable air of ostentation about him. How fortunate for those listening that he appears to have politely reined that in a little.]

I am Seymour Guado, a Maester of Yevon from Spira...a world that I suspect none among you are familiar with.

[Seemingly apologetic, Seymour shakes his head and offers a clear view of blue veins like a mask over his eyes and his very, very strange hair, a sort of blue-violet and horned. Behind him is the interior of his new home in Maurtia Falls, a temporarily spartan-looking abode that is also home to Luffy and Zoro.]

I cannot say that I'm pleased to find myself here as I've a great many responsibilities that require my attention where I come from, but I will nevertheless endeavor to help those in need, just as I would do back home. In fact, nothing would please me more—except, perhaps, the opportunity to become better acquainted with those of you sharing my circumstance.

[Here, he gestures towards the camera with one hand, large and manicured, with long nails barely visible for the billowy sleeve of the robe he's wearing.]

Might you introduce yourselves? And, should you have advice you wish to share, or questions that weigh heavily upon your minds, as I'm certain you must...please do not hesitate to ask. I will gladly answer to the very best of my ability.

[A final polite goodbye before, taking a step back and bowing his head above hands cupped together before him, Seymour cuts the feed.]
