[It's a camping trip! A fun camping trip for science. Early morning on the 16th, everyone gets to pile into subs with their equipment and go boating on over to Mountain Island. It's a long trip, so bring reading material! They will be staying overnight, and when they've gathered all the data they'll head back on the 17th.

Possible prompts (promptabilities?): will you a) be a total pain in the ass on the trip here and keep asking if we're there yet? or possibly telling people to stop asking? will you b) help set up camp and haul out equipment and materials? or maybe you're ready to c) get into checking out the science/magic shit with your powers of science/magic/reading machines? more importantly, d) who is going to set up a campfire for storytelling and marshmallows and e) exactly how much useless screwing around will we be doing here? it feels like a lot. WHO WANTS TO HUG A NOODLE SWING!

Also, there's f) the ride home after we realized we messed up a bit. Whoops.

Anyway, SET UP YOUR TOP LEVELS AND JUST HAVE FUN. You can talk about solutions here, obviously, but I'm going to say that Dirk suggested everyone take a few days to research possible solutions and then we can do an IC Network post discussing ideas, unless anyone has other preferences on that front.

GET LEARNING!!]

So here's the plan, frill-free and no additives.
We need people to examine the volcano using magical bullshit and science bullshit.
Magic side will try to find out what's happening with reference to those hot spots, the flow of the planet's magical energy, whatever else kind of bullshit goes on there.
Science group will be grabbing the volcanology equipment and figuring out what the causes are from a scientific perspective. We also need to see if we can tell what's normal for this misleadingly-named island. You don't need to know science for this part but it'll be unbelievably lame if you do, in fact, know science and just decide not to help.
That goes for the magic side of things. Try not to be a useless piece of shit when basically everyone can help with this.
We're leaving tomorrow. This is going to be a camp out until we have the data we need, so pack your marshmallows and unsanitized stick skewers.

On that note, tell me if you're coming and which aspect you're helping in. I need a headcount for arranging transportation and supplies.

[ooc: mission request has been put in; I'll put up a log when we get a reply!]

ATTENTION UNFORTUNATE MEMBERS OF THIS CREW.
THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SPEAKING.
HAHA JUST KIDDING, WHO THE FUCK WOULD WANT TO BE CAPTAIN OF THIS CLUSTERFUCK?
IT'S KARKAT. I KNOW THE CAPSLOCK IS VERY TELLING, BUT I AM BEING KIND ENOUGH TO DROP THE BOLD GRAY FOR YOUR ASSES BECAUSE I HEARD IT IS MORE ACCOMMODATING, SO PERHAPS YOU CANNOT TELL THAT IT'S ME.
AND BEFORE YOU ASK, NO, I AM NOT ALSO DROPPING THE CAPS.
JUST GET USED TO IT, IT'S NOT THAT BAD.
ALTHOUGH NOW THAT I REALLY THINK ABOUT IT, THERE REALLY ISN'T MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MY NORMAL FONT AND THIS... HUH.

ANY-FUCKING-WAY, I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD TIME RUNNING ALL OVER THE OCEAN FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS!
GOOD NEWS, WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
EXCEPT FOR AN IMPENDING VOLCANIC ERUPTION THAT WILL POTENTIALLY SET OUR ASSES SO ABLAZE THAT THEY CAN STAR IN A FILM STARRING HUMAN SETH ROGEN AND HUMAN JAMES FRANCO.
PROTIP: ALL OF THEIR MOVIES ARE SHIT AND YOU WOULD PROBABLY HAVE A MORE ENJOYABLE EVENING JUMPING INTO THE HIGHLY ACTIVE VOLCANO THAN WATCHING ANY OF THEM.
I HAVE SO MANY REGRETS IN LIFE AND ACTUALLY WATCHING PINEAPPLE EXPRESS WAS ONE OF THEM.

OK MOVING ONTO THINGS THAT ARE ACTUALLY RELEVANT TO OUR CURRENT SCENARIO.
ANY THOUGHTS? HOW SHOULD WE PROCEED?
I ASSUME WE SHOULD PROBABLY GET NAOKO TO MOVE SOMEWHERE ELSE FOR THE TIME BEING, BUT THOSE GUYS HAVE BEEN SO MARRIED TO THAT ISLAND THAT I THINK THEY WILL HAVE TO FILE FOR DIVORCE JUST TO BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE ITS SHORE AT THIS POINT.
BUT IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS FEEL FREE TO SHARE THEM WITH THE REST OF US BEFORE WE ALL DIE AND/OR ARE OTHERWISE INCONVENIENCED.
ALSO IF IT DOES BLOW UP, HOW WILL THIS AFFECT US DRAMATICALLY THROWING OUR UNWANTED ITEMS INTO THE VOLCANO?
DO YOU THINK WE'D STILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT, OR........

With the assistance of his BFF Dave and Dirk, John has set up a chill barbecue out on the island for people to get together and enjoy good food and friendly company. If it can reasonably be barbecued into something edible, guaranteed there is some of it present for cooking along with any and all condiments. There is a distinct absence of baked goods however and only a few hints that suggest John is actually celebrating his birthday.

John can be found helping with the barbecuing, being friendly while wearing the largest and best hat ever complete with matching handlebar mustache. If you came without a hat, somehow... Somehow he has found one for you. In addition, John has invited any newcomers to join the relaxing festivities.

Later, John will be sharing his favorite film with anyone that can stomach it. Any attempts to complain about said movie will fall on deaf ears.

Other than that, eat, drink and prank each other as you please!

hey everyone. since dave reminded me about my birthday and i forgot to send out invitations, i guess i'll just go ahead and use this to get them across.

going to have a barbecue tomorrow and i'd like to give everyone a chance to join if they're interested in hanging out and eating barbecued fish and stuff.... edible stuff.

on one condition.

the theme is silly hats. and you either gotta come up with one i approve of, or i will make you one!



text | private to close friends;

hey guys. i hope you don't mind the mass invite. i already met a few people here that i wanted to invite and i figured... since everyone isn't around that it would be nice to get them in on it. obviously i'll help out with preparations.

also, you are all getting silly hats too. i already made you guys some.

Hello everyone, this is Sanson.

Last month, Sorey, Mikleo and I brought back the Emperor's egg. I have been trying to build an incubator for it. It is almost finished, though it is missing some parts to keep the environment inside regulated.

URSULA has pointed me to find these in the Aurora, or on the Lost River base. Would anyone have the time to come with me?

I would also like advice on finishing up the incubator and anything else that you think I should add.

Thank you.


[ ooc: Sanson's starting to build an incubator! He will be able to get the basic structure done but he has no idea how to do the inside so he'll need everyone's help. If your characters get roughed up at the anenomalies, he can also treat them for injuries/heal them if necessary. Let me know if you'd like him somewhere! ]

[ACTION]

[Hiccup finally made it to the base with Toothless in tow. He looks around the interior of the base, his survival kit pulled close to his chest, a few of the pieces from it resting on Toothless' back. Everything was so alien to him. Designs, smooth metal. No wood... The viking notices Toothless' unease and reaches a hand out to the black dragon's head.]

Easy bud. We'll find a room or something which we can call our own. [The dragon gurgles in protest, but he leans into Hiccup's comforting hand

Hiccup couldn't help but feel a little overwhelmed by all this. This was much more than what he expected. Everything looked so different from Berk.

He spots someone down the hallway and waves his arm. His metal leg taps against the floor as he rushes to get their attention.]


Ah, hello? Can I ask you a few questions?

[TEXT]

okay this is kinda like terror mail, yeah? geez, and to think i almost scribbled on this thing!

anyways, i was wondering if anyone had any fishing supplies on hand? or even some fresh fish in general? my dragon and i arrived not too long ago, and toothless is getting a little cranky.

...are the fish here even safe to eat? i never considered that.

anything helps! and i guess i should introduce myself. im hiccup.

hey so anyway
about the how we got here mystery im not sure any of us ever thought wed solve
time to praise me because i solved it
i got annoyed and backtracked
warper portals + warpers are the answer
and precurser tech or wtfever i guess
which
i guess warpers might be precurser tech anyway?
did we decide one way or the other re that
i cant fucking recall
but anyway
ill answer questions i you have them but i mean i literally just went back in time
and spied on us
because not knowing was stupid
it not having occurred to me sooner was also stupid but like
whatever
the more you know
pretty sure you cant avoid this bullshit nonsense when it occurs
given what i saw
but whatever
now were all aware of the inevitable possibilities huzzah for us

in other news
i will have been a mother for a year on the ninth next month
which is to say itll be the magisters birthday
what do you think alien fish want to do on their birthdays
because roses ideas so far wig me out ever so gently
which i assume is the purpose behind them so gold star for rose lalonde
you successfully creeped out your brother
actually no i dont want to give her a gold star itll only encourage her
and she doesnt *need* any further encouragement
anyway the topic was the magister and birthday things
i mean obviously ill ask him
but i feel like polling the populace cant go wrong
and i feel weird leaving this so short
there was like more to the first thing originally but i got informed that
basically the first part up there was what i needed and stopping there would be good

and now
i am not stopping there
shit ok im ending this bye

oh one more thing tho
egbert wtf do you wanna do on the 13th?
you have a week to decide jackass
ive had experience planning parties now i can make that a thing
w/out cake lest you have a mental breakdown in technicolor
i guess i could have just texted you this question but whatever
everyone else should know about your coming of age too just in case they somehow missed the alert

also @ everyone maybe be careful about handing nancy live samples
like
animals
im not 100% shes the most ethical scientist around so just like
strongly consider that as you do ig?
i could be wrong of course
but i think its worth being a little paranoid when it involves actual living creatures
and not just plants
although ig plants have souls here
so id be cautious about them too
dirk hurt a rock once it was sad
but it got better
but maybe that means we should also be cautious about plants????

also i think its fairly obvious by now and most people know but
my sleeping quarters are now @ hephaestus tower and have been for a few months
because best browser
but anyway no solicitors allowed not that itd be easy
b/c i didnt see a need to put in doors or accessible entries
but like
just so people know that tower is hella occupied
and to leave it be
tho i think most of them are still like free to take over if you really want

anyway later
i think i circumvented what editing was done to this mostly on accident
oops

edit: thats how we get kicked out too fyi
the precurser tech and warpers
for at least 2 people i checked
so hey

...Ah!?”

Touma awoke. His first instinct upon regaining consciousness was to try to get a grasp on his current situation. Before his world was consumed by darkness, he distinctively remembered a visitor appearing within his apartment. The details about this individual was hazy. Try as he might, any attempt to recall anything specific about them was futile. All he could truly remember was what they declared themselves to be and the aftermath of their statement. A shiver ran down his spine. There was no way that shouldn't been possible. He couldn't accept it.

The thought his world was once again taken from him on a whim of a God was not something his heart could just readily accept.

Taking in a few slow breaths to calm himself, Touma decided to prioritize figuring out where he is. He was currently inside a container of some kind. Unlike the last container he had the misfortune of being stuffed inside, this one had a window in the front. Outside, he could spot a variety of medical equipment. Was he inside a hospital? Turning his attention away from the window, he searched for a way to escape the confinement. To his surprise, all it took was gentle push to open the door and free himself from his imprisonment. His luck usually isn't that generous.

Cautiously, he stepped out and began exploring his new surroundings. It quickly became apparent to him that he wasn't the only person occupying the room. After a moment of hesitation, Touma decided to talk to them. Hopefully, they will turn out to be friendly.

"Hello! Sorry to be a bother, but I'm a little lost. Would you mind giving me some directions?"

Although he was smiling, anyone who was observant enough would be able to notice how tense he actually was.

[ If there's one thing obvious about the fully-armoured knight in the middle of the hallway, she (or he?? it's very hard to tell) is drenched. Absolutely soaked. Water drips almost comically from the horns on her helmet, and she leaves a wet trail on the floor with every step.

The second most obvious thing: she's pissed. Maybe even understandably. She had to beat up some stalkers that tried to take her armour just to get here. ]


What. The. Hell. [ Worst summoning ever. She stomps furiously through the base, ignoring anything that might actually provide an explanation, and instead accosts whoever is unlucky enough to be in her path. ] You! What kind of second— no, third-rate Master are you, summoning me like that?!

[ Answer carefully. ]

[As far as Max's concerned, it has definitely, absolutely been too long since Rin and Makoto disappeared. And Max has definitely, absolutely been listening to Yuri too much. Because it's time to go out looking for them. If they haven't gotten kidnapped by aliens or something.

She shifts on her feet, fidgeting with her camera as she waits for Yuri to show up, along with, who was it...

Erina! Right, he said he was bringing along Erina. Some sorely-needed extra help here.

Max looks up as soon as she hears someone approach, already slowly raising a hand to wave.]

[Save the stalkers! By beating the heck out of a reaper.

A few of the girls on base have decided to make a spectacle out of defending the stalker feeding grounds. Turning a fight into a show will lessen the humiliation for the poor Reaper, right?

Right?

Well, probably not, but this group is going to turn their Reaper fight into a show, complete with flashy moves, ridiculous wrestling nicknames, and hand-to-hand combat, even for those of us who may be more adept at ranged fighting.

After the reaper has been soundly thrashed (we hope), everyone will return to base to hang out and see what planet resources can be used to create 100% natural bath and wellness products, with a focus on those things that are most easily harvested with the least harm done to the planet.

[Well it's nice that we can talk now! The storm kicked up some trouble so why don't you go help out? There's debris of things from home you may now have the chance to dig up, or maybe someone will help find them with you? There are also debris deposits that URSULA has located about. Grab a friend or two and go check them out!

There is of course also the ordinary work around the base to be done: building and repairing, exploring regions, trying to befriend every single thing we meet. Or maybe you just wanna play video games.

4th: Midday, a power outage followed by language shenanigans! Ask mods to roll you a language here.
7th: Debris starts showing up. Don't go outside at this time though? What kind of fool are you.
8th: Translation will be repaired.

[So, someone walking down one of the hallways might find their path blocked by what is almost a literal pile of cats. There's a child none of them have seen before sitting in the middle of them, patting one of them and meowing at it. He does switch to speaking normally at times, though.]

Wow, you guys know everything about this place! So there isn't an attic, huh...where do you guys usually hide?

[He'll hiss in surprise once he notices anyone approaching, and leap to his feet, looking around for somewhere to run to.]

You saw nothing!

[It'll probably be easy to catch him before he runs, especially with all the cats blocking his way as well.]

hi everybody!! jade here
sooo i know its been a while since ive been around! i tried to see how far out my teleportation powers could take me and...... they accidentally ran out?
so it took me all this time to get back to the base and i think i was too far out for the communicator to work properly :(
im okay though!! and my space powers seem to be working again
and now i know how far away i can teleport before i cant get back!!!!
i hope i didnt worry anybody :(

[ If you were expecting peace and quiet today, it's about to be disrupted.

The video feed shows Nonon, smiling satisfied that her camera angle is perfect. Of course, any cuteness is ruined once she opens her mouth, her voice at complete odds with her face and her annoyance perfectly clear. ]


Hey, listen up! [ She waves a gold drum major baton around. ] Who's in charge here? Who the hell would like being confined in some kind of containment cell? You're lucky I could break out and the area outside where I woke up fit my aesthetic or else there'd be more to pay for. [ More obnoxious baton swishing. ] Some gothic loli told me an AI runs this place. Is that true? Don't put on such a poor performance. No composition can have soul when conducted by a robot. What are you guys, eels or little mermaids? And why is everything so Greek-looking? [ That's the most puzzling thing somehow. ]

I still don't know why the hell I'm here, and I'm still reading up on things— [ said in a tone of someone who doesn't really like to read but you gotta do what you gotta do ] —but those Kharaa... are they only like bacteria or whatever? They're not fibers or—clothes, right? [ For all Nonon knows, Life Fibers could be called something completely different on another planet in whatever space this was. ]

Last but most important because that emo kid couldn't tell me, are there any instruments around here? I need music to clear my head.
