[Oh, this is familiar. Aerith's back at it again with another self-made commercial. The video opens up to Aerith, standing in her garden with a sugary-sweet smile on her face.]

Happy spring, everyone! Isn't it beautiful? The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming - there's no better time to brighten up your home with some of my flowers, especially with all of the holidays coming up. Whether you're entertaining for Easter, getting a head start on Mother's Day, or you just want to show someone you care, I've got the best flowers around for you!

And I have some exciting news! I'm teaming up with a good friend for a special offer!

[And pan to Riku, who looks a hundred percent like he's regretting his life choices. He raises one hand in a facsimile of a greeting, eyes meeting the camera for a moment before he looks down at something in his other hand, offscreen.]

You really want me to say this...?

[Aerith hushes him from behind the camera, whispering back.]

It's fine! You got this!

[Riku's brows furrow. Stiffly, he recites, without looking up:]

Riku here. I'm very excited to tell you about our new team-up. Forgotten to pick up a gift for that -- [he clears his throat] -- special someone? Worry no longer, because we now offer no-wait delivery and flowergrams.

[Does he even know what a flowergram is? It's unclear.]

Order today...!

[He almost forgot to try sounding enthusiastic at the end there.]

Uh--

[Aerith doesn't sound sure about that take at all, but nevertheless, the camera cuts back to her.]

Place your orders right here, right now! Or come see me personally at Nonah 06 and pick out your own flowers right from my garden. Don't wait, or spring will hop right by you!


[ooc: this is a joint post, so replies will come from both aerith and riku!]

[The video opens up to...a floor. You can tell it's a floor because while it's originally just a black screen, it's picked up a moment later and-]

Whups-

Is it working?

[The camera shifts, showing Callaghan and Kotetsu - the latter fumbling with it. They are also upside down.]

I think so, but-


Pretty sure you've got it backwards, there.

Oh crap, right. Sorry. [Cue Kotetsu flipping it up as Callaghan hides a faint smile, glancing at him as Kotetsu gets them both in-frame. They look to be in an office of some sort, some papers set up on a desk behind them along with books and the like.] This right?

Mhm.

Cool. Okay! I'm Kotetsu Kaburagi-

-and I'm Robert Callaghan. [He looks back at the camera.] It's my pleasure to inform you all that we've finally completed a few changes for the campus. Many of you know the place as 'Xavier's School for imPorts', set outside of Heropa. [He tilts his head] We'll now be known as the Heropa Organization for imPort Education, shorthand HOPE. [And that gets a proud quirk of lips.] We'll also now be offering some college-level classes for our more advanced students, in addition to our powers training [A brief pause while he tilts his head towards Kotetsu, who grins] and general education curriculum. As always, you're welcome to stay in the dorms or commute as you'd like.

With that said, we're looking to make use of the dorms.
[He grows a little more serious] Some of you are unRegistered, like me, for whatever reasons. Regardless of those reasons, if you're finding it difficult to get by without the aid that's offered for those who do Register, we'd like to offer you a place to stay while you get your feet under you. This offer's open to anyone, regardless of age, so long as you behave yourselves and at least make an effort to make your way. If you need some advisement with where to go or what to do, we're willing to support you however we can and you can help around the school if you're having issues finding employment.

And on that subject, we're always looking for more faculty, or even staff for the non-teaching positions. If you're interested in any of this - attendance, employment, or lodging - we'd be happy to speak with you.


[[OOC; tl;dr Xavier's School for imPorts > Heropa Organization for imPort Education. Some college level classes offered. Unregistered can hang out there if you help around the place and/or just need a place to stay for a bit. Nothing really stopping Registered from doing it but you already get free shit why you need]

[Komasan can be seen sprawled out on his couch, a good deal of empty candy boxes resting alongside him. The few that haven't been opened yet look like they don't have much time left, Komasan lazily begins to paw one in a poor attempt to drag it closer to himself.]

I really like this chocolate season, zura...

[Someone's been hoarding the Valentine's Day chocolates. Again.]

I-Is anyone else buying lots of chocolate? You guys should hurry before it's all gone, zura... Or you can come over and share with me, I think I might've eaten too much, zura...

[He says as he slips another piece into his mouth.]

It might not be soft cream, but I just can't seem to stop myself, z-zura...

My birthday's coming up in three months, I actually remembered, this time.

[Honestly, people should be proud of him for remembering something that isn't food, adventure, or fighting-related.]

But not only do I not have a ship STILL, but my crew is still tiny. [It's just him and Zoro--that's so lonely.]

So what kind'a parties do people have in this weird place? I want a big one. And a fun one.

[Cut to a desk piled high with papers and schoolbooks. They block the view for a second---at least, until his hand pushes through the pile and starts shoving them aside. Doc finally appears in view, goggles askew atop his head.]

Now that the latest calamity's past, hello! I'm glad most of you seem to be safe and sound---though I will say that a better backup plan might be in order if that stunt gets repeated. And now that it's worked, I fear it will be. An alternative power grid, perhaps? Costly and impractical everywhere, but maybe a little...

[He shakes his head, reaching down to shuffle what appears to be a stack of cover letters. Time to concentrate..]

I'm losing the train of thought already. I come to you with two questions. The first: do you know of any educational institutions that would hire this late in the year? I can offer to assist with finals, of course, but I'm hoping to fill a more permanent role.

And the second, more frivolous question: most of us know what the resurgence of red and pink heart shapes means, though I've never paid much attention to it. This year, I'm afraid it's required of me. And I wonder: as I understand it, it's a traditional day for a carefully planned date night and gift exchange between romantic partners. Are there any other nuances one should know before planning such a date?

[Oh hey, it's Aerith. No one's seen her for a few months, huh?

Though she just turned on the video, she already looks for a moment like she forgot about it. She's staring off at something in the distance that the viewfinder can't see, if there's anything there, anyway.

A moment passes and she glances back at her phone.]


Kel isn't here anymore. But Tetsuo is. It hasn't been that long, right?

[Someone would be right if they noticed she's acting even weirder than normal.]

Can someone tell me what happened while I was gone?

[After one inappropriately long pause--]

I made it back in time for my birthday.

This is BULLSHIT!

I didn't do anything this time! Where do they get off, yanking me around like that?! Sh-shit-

[He cuts off with a pained sound. His breathing sounds strained, and there's a soft thump. Then he keeps growling into the comm.]


I should have smashed their precious little machine when I had the chance... And then every last one of them! Then take out this whole stupid country if I have to!

So, uh... that blackout was somethin', hunh?

[ Adachi's been busy, between parsing together what he pulled out of the investigation, to just recovering after all that time running on bare minimum sleep, so his response to it all is late in coming. Even now, he still looks like the dark circles under his eyes are permanent fixtures, and he paused a moment to rub at his eyes, as if it would help. ]

I've been thinking about it for the past few days, and I realize I'm pretty rusty with my judo. I uh...

[ He hesitated, making a face that was more directed at himself. It didn't matter what he did or who he talked to: asking for things like this and forcing himself to be a social human being was hard. ]

I-I could use someone to practice with. Get back into shape, you know?

[ Adachi sunk back a little reaching to rub at the back of his neck. ]

Also, it's my birthday today. I could use a drinking buddy for later; I don't want to spend turning thirty by myself.

[On the network is what appears to be a young boy, about 12 or 13 years old. For a moment, he stares quite soulfully at the video output impossibly deep, black eyes, and then pokes at the screen with one fingernail.]

Not even a proper imp in there, how's that for you...?

[He pulls back and mimes clearing his throat. A voice far, far more booming than is fit for the child's face resounds across the feed.]

Right, broadcast. AHEM. This is just a friendly, non-suspicious question, inquiring on when the next coup or violent overthrow of this government is going to be. Not that I'm actually advocating it, I just know you humans really can't resist.

I'm pretty handy with a popcorn machine if anyone can provide good seats.

[Slight buzz as the social network video thing turns on and you see a smiling face.]

Is it on now? Letseee…...Alright! That should do it!

[Clearing his throat now]The name’s Gentarou Kisaragi. I’m going to be friends with every hero! Starting with every one in Heropa! Give me a shout if you wanna be buds!

Ok! Mai! Talk to the video to get help! I’ll talk to people here!


[The image very obviously jolts as the girl is fumbling with the device for a few moments and she has a rather panicked expression for just a few seconds as she turns to watch him run off in the background trying to talk to everyone that passes by with a ‘HEEEYYY! CAN YOU HELP A GUY OUT?!’ Being heard even from this distance. Then she turns back and smiles brightly.]

Hi! I’m Mai! Gentarou and I are new here and we’re trying to find our place. We’re in a place called…

[There’s a little more fumbling as she’s looking at a little piece of paper she scribbled on.]

Heropa and we’re number 28. That would be great!

[And now she leans in a little closer to the screen with a laugh and whispers the next line..]

And if you could tell me the directions quickly before he grabs too many strangers, that would be even more amazing!



((OOC: Intro post for both Gentarou and Mai. If you want to reply with Action, you will get Gentarou accosting you in the streets asking for help. If you reply with Video, then you will get a response from Mai or Gentarou or both.))

[When the camera comes on, all you see is a very large face; it's also upside-down. The person on the other end blinks, turning the device around, peering closely at it. She doesn't seem to realize that she's turned it on.] Why do I feel like that if I shake this thing too hard, it's going to blow up in my face?

[She pulls it back, and though the image is still upside-down, it's now clear that the face belongs to a young woman wearing an outfit resembling a bedlah. Oh, and the curtain of purple behind her? It's her hair, and there's a lot of it.] I... don't think I should trust something this small that talks. How the heck does it even work? There's no dynamo or steam generator or anything like that.

And it doesn't feel magic. [She leans back in, and audibly sniffs the device.] Doesn't smell magic, either. Boy, Uncle Mimic would have a field day with this thing.

...hey, that red light wasn't always on the front, was it? What the heck does "recording" mean?

[And realization.] Ah, crud.

I'm lookin' for a job.

[There's only so long one can go without money, even if there are people who give free food to imPorts sometimes.]

I can do most things, though my best skills're as a swordsman, if you need a bodyguard or security or somethin' like that.

[Sure enough, there's three (three!!!) swords sheathed at his side. What kind of swordsman fights with three swords? Well, here's your chance to find out.]

Only thing I won't do is cut down people for whatever personal grudges you might have. You can sort out that kinda shit yourselves.

--Oh yeah, and I ain't joinin' anything officially; I've already got a crew to get back to, so. I'll work for you, but it's gonna be a temporary sort of thing. Got it?

[ The video opens on two young men sitting side by side on a couch, set up to address the camera together. One is younger, Japanese, with dark hair and glasses; he is way, way less enthused about this than the platinum blond Russian dude waving enthusiastically at the video feed. ]

Um … well … I’m … Katsuki Yuuri. [ He trails off, mumbling more about himself, but it doesn’t quite make it to the microphone. He seems wildly uncomfortable to be doing this. The last phrase sounds something like “nice to meet you” but it’s hard to tell. ]

[ The Russian chooses that moment to sling an arm around the shoulders of his embarrassed companion and lean on him a bit, his heart-shaped smile and handsome face gorgeous enough to be in a fashion magazine. He looks into the camera with no hesitation at all. ]

Hiii! [ he proclaims brightly, his Russian accent becoming more evident as he talks. ] I’m Viktor Nikiforov, and I’m Yuuri’s figure skating coach! We just finished our biggest competition of the year, the Grand Prix Final, and we just wanted to reach out to our fans to thank them all for their support!

[ Yuuri chokes at that, his next comment coming out as a squawk. ]

-- Eh!? VIktor, this is a different dimension! We don’t have fans here!

But we can get NEW fans! [ Viktor winks at the camera before he turns his head to look at Yuuri mischievously. ]

Wh - Viktor, no! We don’t know anyone! Not in public--!

[ And then the feed goes down as Yuuri manages to knock it over before Viktor throws himself at him. ]

I guess it's that time again, huh?

[Despite being dressed in a stark white shirt, matte black tie, and lacking his usual over-the-top effects, Josuke's face is lit up like the sun. He waves at the camera, giving the people he's speaking to his undivided attention. Behind him, people dressed similarly amble in the direction of Heropa's police academy, most seeming to pay him no mind, but a couple of the younger adults stopping to wave at the recording camera as some people can't help but do.]

There's a lot of new imPorts showing up. Think I even saw some heading to the houses near mine. Reminds me of when I got here two years ago...it's kinda hard to believe I'm going on the third year already.

[He scratches at the back of his head and then shrugs.]

Can't say it's been bad, though! I've met a lot of great people and had a lot of fun. But things can get sort of wild around here, you know? Which is what I really wanted to talk about. As amazing as this place can be...there's a lot of shit to watch out for and people to be wary of.

[Not naming any names, of course. Not yet.]

But don't worry. It really does get easier, and you're not alone.

[With a toothy grin, Josuke gives the camera a thumbs up.]

Anyway...I'm probably in for a long day here, but I'm thinking of catching a movie later. Any of you wanna come along, maybe make some friends and get to know the ropes a little, you're more than welcome!

[The new year is usually a time where everyone can relax from their hard work over the holidays. It should be a time where friends hang out and have fun. It definitely should be Nike’s favorite way of beginning the new year, but… it wasn’t. A new network post will begin with a close up of her face that has a very forced smile, one that almost yelled ‘she was going to eat someone alive in less than a minute’. It becomes even more clear the moment she begins to speak in an exasperated voice.]

Happy new year, everyone. I know I should’ve asked this before, but I never thought I’d need to do this. [And what could it be? It won’t be long until she answers.] A new year’s resolution. I heard about them. I made a few. Like for one, I will try to be more patient and not do anything too drastic, but…

Oiiii!

You guys like fireworks?!

[Ah, there it is, the call of your Nonah resident fuckboy, Kaneda. A change of pace from the last time he showed his face on the network, that’s for sure. And still lacking any sense of volume control, we see. The feed clicks on, showing the boy in...Ken Amada’s room? It’s got a giant stuffed bear in the corner, a desk with what looks to be a boy’s winter homework, and a sleeping Koromaru on the bed. Not a layout you'd expect from a bosozoku biker to have...so process of elimination in this house can only narrow it down to (1) Ken Amada.

Why is this in Ken’s room? A good question, since there's nothing really wrong with Kaneda's own room... Well, it is Kaneda, and he’s been known for his eccentricity...but also it’s been where he’s been sleeping the past few weeks. He won't admit it out loud, but Ken's been one of the major factors of him actually getting up and around the house. It just seemed natural to host it in that room, since he'd taken up residence there for the time being. He can’t really enter Tetsu--the empty room. And his own just reminded him of how alone he felt. He’s NOT having that.

Whether or not he’s shoving down his problems or truthfully moving past his best friend and adoptive brother’s departure is another story entirely. But with a new year approaching, it meant a new Kaneda, and he squared his shoulders, faced the screen, and took another metaphorical step. It was all he could think to do.

...


Right, fireworks. Kaneda is quick to show what this broadcast is about, holding up three plastic shopping bags one one arm filled to the brim with fireworks--an odd assortment, as if he’d been shopping at some weird explosives bargain bin. Don't ask where he got it. It start with an M and ends in aurtia Falls.]


Course ya do, what kind of person doesn’t like fireworks?

[His one free hand pats the bags with pride, dusting off his knuckles on his shirt. Confidence bleeds from him once more, it seems.]

Point is--I’m launching these tonight in the west Nonah outskirts.


Got nothing to do? I’ll be there.


[ooc: There’ll be an open log going up later today for the fireworks party! I'll edit with the link once I get it up. Answering this post isn’t necessary, but if you wanna chat up before then or ask Kaneda questions about his YOLO, feel free to!]

[ The Doctor flips on the camera. Anyone who knows him really well can tell that he seems older, though he doesn't look it. He's older in that way that someone who's experienced some sadness is older despite the fact that they still look exactly the same. Of course, he's not going to talk about that, instead talking about something completely different because hahaha, acknowledging your problems is stupid! ]

I think this universe is contagious.

[ just said 100% seriously before continuing. ] I pop back home, accidentally mind you, and what do I deal with? Superheroes! Actual superheroes, just like you lot! Well, a actual superhero and probably not entirely like you lot, you're the ones who've got stupid universes where you get weird powers in weird ways and not by sensible methods like swallowing a space rock. [ because that is entirely sensible. ]

He had a mask and a secret identity and everything. And a baby, but I don't think babies are essential to the job. So, network, question! Who else has had weird contagious cross-universe bleed-over because I'd hate to be an outlier. I'm always the outlier.

Also! Who do I talk to in order to get the names changed? You can call me Doctor Mysterio now. [ said with the right inflection of ham and finger wiggles. Then there's a pause, before, ] Maybe not, let's just stick with the Doctor. Doctor Mysterio's good but it's a bit too long, how're you going to get all that out in time? By the time you've finished saying 'oh no, it's the Daleks, help us out Doctor Mysterio' then they've gone and vaporized you.
