[It had been awhile since Izaya's initial arrival here in Discedo and, contrary to what seemed to be a lot of the inhabitant's initial beliefs, for the most part the informant had been keeping his presence low. He wasted his days away by eavesdropping in on other's conversations, hacking locks (really, Shizu-chan? Sakura-san? Only 50%~?), and by doing whatever else was necessary to pick up some dismal, possibly useless, bit of knowledge that this place offered in relation to its inhabitants.

Which is why, if one were to wonder how Izaya wound up in this specific tree at this specific time, you could believe his claims of Shizuo chasing him up it like some yapping mutt or you could conclude that his endeavors were finally paying off.]

What do you think is necessary to push someone over that ambiguous, forbidden edge?

[Izaya's voice is low and yet there is still that echo of amusement within it as the video screen flickers on. However instead of the informant all you can see is a tree's branches blocking him out of sight from the two standing upon the ground some odd distance away.]

In this place where the only people we can trust are each other what would happen if that trust is betrayed? When a fragile mind finally snaps beneath the pressure and becomes a threat to us all?

[As the camera focuses the figures of Sasuke and Turkey become more defined. Sasuke's stance is clearly combative, chokuto already drawn and eyes trained solely upon his current target. Izaya's voice falls silent, like that of a memory long passed, when the observer becomes unable to focus upon anything more but the body of the avenger as Sasuke darts forward -- because naturally he makes the first move -- with average speed and abilities kept in check. Because of this, the nation parries easily, the metal clashing with a shower of sparks. He's almost smirking as he flicks his wrist to dislodge the swords from each other, sidestepping then to make a swing at Sasuke's side.]

Whose fault could be claimed in that moment when life and death hang upon the edge for them both? Do we seek out vengeance for the one defeated or believe the story of the survivor as we embrace the killer back into our midst?

[Turkey's blow is also met thanks to a sudden shift to a reverse grip, though it's not a favorable angle at which to defend. For a moment Sasuke does nothing, gaze flickering to Turkey and then to those swords as if he's made some sort of decision. And then, in a single instant, where the shinobi once was there is nothing at all. A flicker of an image is there in front of his opponent before suddenly appearing behind him, purposefully not allowing for time to react. Just as quickly seen is a spark of electricity darting along that chokuto before it's thrust forward into Turkey's back.

Turkey remains still for the moment, stunned. He reaches up to touch where the blade juts through his chest, but stops short; expression turning into one of a grimace as he wrenches himself away and begins to turn on the spot.

H-Hey, what the fuck, Sasuke--!!

[ The only auditory response Turkey's exclamation was granted is the crackle of electricity as the voltage is increased, traveling along the length of the sword and the blood now coating it. For the second attack there's no hesitation, and this time Sasuke is sure not to miss his spine. And he doesn't. His eyes are red when he meets Turkey's.

The nation means to say something more, but there's only blood; his scimitar falling inaudibly into the dirt, with its owner soon to follow. He doesn't get up.


[Izaya's laugh is a low, a mirthful chuckle that quickly grows in volume as the camera is flicked towards his own smiling face.]

Say, what do you think everyone? Is forgiveness the correct route? And if we forgave would we be able to forget the look on Turkey-san's face as he crumpled to the ground at Sasuke-san's feet?

I suppose the decision is up to you.

[And then the feed suddenly cuts off]

Hey everyone, it's Marco. [You know, in case you couldn't tell from him being... Marco :|]

This actually took a little longer than I meant it to, but a couple of my maps got trashed, and then I nearly lost them when we moved and then I had to get the right kind of bottles--

[Wait. None of you needed to know that. Scratch that and ignore.]

Ah that is -- [Dramatic extra pirate-y mode get!] -- ARRR! Listen up me hearties and mateys alike! Around the port o' call: Discedo, there be buried treasures just waiting to be found and dug up! I have 'ere on me six treasure maps, and there be telling what gold lies at 'dem ends of rainbows wherein treasure marrrrks the spot! [He's trying really hard. Pirates in his world don't talk like this, okay? He has to guess what people think pirates sounds like and fill it in from imagination.]

Be ye daring enough to give these clever puzzles an attempt and earn the treasure and stake yer rightful claim to it?

And if not, then this is just a reminder that the Northern Lights is still operating and a lot more fully stocked. Bring me treasure, more drinks, or whatever you can. If nothing else, food can go to other people or the soup kitchen. We also take blood. [Bloody Mary's and all that. Okay no, that's not why, but if you ask he will claim it is.]

Now get hunting! Come get yer treasure maps and team up to split the treasure! Ev'ryone playing must have at least one sturdy nakama with 'im or 'er to ensure their victory!

[It's been awhile Discedo. Have a good view of everyone's favorite genius.  Washu is sitting at her desk in her office at the hospital sorting through papers. A few moments later she lets down a small stack and smiles into her device.]

Out of curiosity, how many people in this city have medical training and to what degree? Can I have a show of hands please~? I want to know who I'm working with now that a few others have disappeared back home.

As for the rest of you, who wants to be a nurse~?

[Hopefully by now, most people on Fortuna have somehow received a prettily wrapped package containing four different varieties of home-made mooncake outside their doorstep. Those within Discedo had them hand-delivered; everyone else...hope they made it...]

Hey everyone! I know things have been really crazy recently, but if you have a chance [pause] and are in someplace where it's safe to do it [pause...], you should definitely go outside and take a look up at the moon! If you squint really closely, maybe you'll see Chang'e ( 嫦娥), the moon goddess who lives there, or the Jade Rabbit making medicine!

[A soft, kind of wistful laugh] At least, that's what I would say if we were at home...

Anyway, I hope all my packages made it safely, but even if it's not the same moon, you can definitely still eat the mooncake! There's 4 kinds: lotus-paste, red bean, green tea, and chocolate! Just for variety.

I included egg-yolk in a few of them, but you don't have to eat it if you don't like it.

[Oh wait...] Yeah, and I guess it's China's birthday tomorrow too.

祝你生日快樂,老師! You're still old, by the way!

Oh, and I don't care if you changed to simplified, you're still going to have to get all your greetings in traditional from me! [Yes, Taiwan did just stick her tongue out in the video. How mature.]

[She had known almost immediately upon waking that everything was not as it had been the night before. For starters, she was no longer the proper gender. If that wasn’t odd enough, closer inspection revealed that the body she now resided in belonged to someone else, someone familiar. If their encounters had been relatively brief.

How fascinating.

When she finally picks up the communicator, residents of Fortuna are greeted with The Doctor, dressed with an oddly feminine touch and a distinctly softer accent.

As much as I appreciate having the opportunity to fully explore the opposite sex, perhaps a bit of warning, next time?

[ This obviously isn't Yukio. Oh sure, it's his face and his body, but that expression could never belong to him. Seriously the closet approximation I could find is

and yet that still is not quite manic enough to describe the look on his face. It is a look that screams of sleep deprivation, hatred towards self and everyone else, and a tenuous grasp on sanity. This expression can only belong to one person. (And such a reason provides a convenient excuse for me to not upload any new icons and simply say "use your imagination to picture Yukio making these faces.")

If you haven't guessed it yet, Yukio's voice is a raspy half-shout as he just laughs and laughs like a stereotypical cartoon villain. When he finally does stop cackling the crazy grin is still on his face.

Not so high and mighty now, are you, nameless white haired abomination who I once challenged to a fight but had to issue a rain check because I twisted my ankle? And let me just say how glad I am that our battle was halted. This body's a fucking powerhouse of death and despair! You've got the power of dimensions at your finger tips, right?

[ It is at this point that Yukikat pulls out a fucking lighter and starts drifting his fingers over it jesus christ. His eyes water but he doesn't cry out. (No worries, though, it's only close enough to have the same effect as getting burned with a hot glue gun while making cosplay and then HATING YOUR FUCKING LIFE BECAUSE SURE A BAND AID WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM BUT YOU HAVE MORE SHIT TO SEW). ]

NOT ANYMORE. ENJOY YOUR BLISTERS, BITCH. If we'd faced off I bet I never would've landed a single fucking blow on this worn porcelain that you call skin.

[ PUNCHING HIMSELF IN THE FACE. REPEATEDLY. Some blood trickles from his lips from being cut on his teeth. Still smiling though. ]

Gonna look a whole lot fucking better with bruises! You're welcome. Now when you walk down the street everyone will point at you and say, "You are not nearly as hideous as you were before. Whoever fucked you up certainly did a service for this world. If I had to stare at you one more second I would've died from your ugly."

Oh, what's that? All this is superficial and won't actually cripple you?

[ Pulling out some... cream, or milk, or cottage cheese, it's pretty hard to tell. There is also some rather questionable looking meat wrapped in moldy bread.

Yukikat proceeds to inhale all of this Of course he gags continuously and downs everything with a grimace. To his credit he manages to keep it down long enough to settle in his stomach.

Have fun with your intestinal distress. I can tell you right now that awful things are going to be coming out of both ends for days, each instance more painful from the last, leaving every one of your orifices sore and bloody and violated by the stench of your body trying to shit out your soul.

Now who out there is suffering from a communicable disease? I'm going to come and lick you.

[There's cackling as "Terezi" switches to video. The screen is kind of blurry though because there's saliva all over the screen. Guess who's been liking their communicator.]

Why can't all of you just type in red? It would be the most delicious network since whenever networks were made!

But come and try and one up that delicious, cherry red. At worst, you will get a "YOU TRIED" from me. Hehehe.

Also, my friends should check in. Especially Dave and Karkat! I want to know if you two got switched so I can laugh at you. Maybe Karkat got swapped with his Prinny. I think I can handle a Karkat saying "dood" for awhile. It's better than his insistent ranting about possums!

[OOC: Dave swapped with Terezi, but he can never not use this as a chance to troll.]

He looks about as excited about this as he ever does anything. ]

Whoever has my body, I'd be grateful if you took care of it. Thanks.

Sorry for being vague, it's just I'm not really sure who I am right now. If someone could tell me, that'd be like, really awesome.

[ That's pretty much all he has to say. Short and sweet and to the point.

Oh wait, one more thing. ]

If someone has some clothes I could borrow, I'd be really grateful. Yeah.

Good evening. I would be a highly unobservant individual if I failed to notice the recent events taking place around Fortuna. Indeed, some people very close to me have found themselves in the bodies of others, as have many of the rest of you.

I would just like to remind everyone not to waste such a rare opportunity. Try to really embrace seeing the world through new eyes for a little while to gain a new perspective and appreciation for your own lives. [ And with that overly optimistic message, the feed cuts out. ]

( high heeled boots are shown first when the feed opens up. then the right foot is lifted and steps upon the device. a small squeak can be heard before the screen cuts and re-opens to a fallen tatsumi. the body rolls over and stares at the communicator. 'he' gently whines in pain before the truffles on 'his' head clamp down on his head. )

Please I need shoes....these big high heeled ones are killing me! This is the fourth time I've fallen.

( 'tatsumi' suddenly turns pale. )

How does this even work...I think....I think the Gods hate me. Please put me out of my misery. I just want to go home!

[It was quite unlike Izaya to leave his feed on accidentally.

In fact he probably would've been angry at himself for having done so if he hadn't found himself otherwise occupied with a matter much more pressing.]


[The room he was in appeared to be Shizuo's bathroom except the door was off its hinges and the mirror had cracks in it now as though someone had clenched it too tightly in their exasperation. But the pain wasn't felt, in fact, the only reason why he even let go was due to a sudden shock inside of him that he could only attribute as to being caused by some strange internal mechanism inside of the monster's body]

...I am not wearing a fucking bowtie.

[Aradia is sitting in Karkat's apartment, as cheerful as can be, wearing a colourful blue and purple polkadotted party hat ontop of her hood. You can tell it's Karkat's apartment because he's sitting behind her, bawling into his hands. His party hat is periwinkle and covered in an obscene amount of glitter, which is starting to collect around his head and shoulders as he weeps openly.

Clive is also there, his upper half sticking out from under the couch, a fashionable blue and red swirled party hat placed over his face. He doesn't appear to be moving at all.]

Hi! I'm Aradia, I just arrived here today, and it's very nice to meet you all! Karkat already gave me the basics of this place, about the city and the scientists and the chips, and about who else from the game is here—hi guys!—but I'm sure there are things he forgot, so if there's anything really important I should know I'd appreciate hearing it. I'd also love to meet everyone, so you're all invited to my corpse party!

[gesturing at Clive's unconscious body]

It's at... [pauses thoughtfully, then turns around to look at Karkat] Hey, where is this hivestem again?

[Karkat: still too busy crying to answer.]

Oh. Well, it's not a very tall hivestem, and it's next to the water! But I can go check outside if that's not specific enough.

Anyway, everyone is welcome and I have lots of hats!

Have you ever woken up with a craving for everything, ever? [No, but seriously. The courthouse has been taken over. Boxes of cigars, the most unhealthy food he could get out of the shops possible, a single bottle of booze (it's hard when you've got a pirate emperor's son hoarding it all) and apparently.... smooth rocks? Go on and hazard a guess what that's about. But seriously, if there's a minor vice, it seems he's been addicted.]

Nothing is making this headache go away.

I'd take pills, but at this point I'd probably get addicted to them too. God damn it. Anyone got a solution? Or something?

And Washu, that motorcycle ride will come... whenever this headache goes away. Damn.

[ooc: Right I got sick with bad timing (always) so this is pretty late. Smoker's chip event is still in effect, anyone else can have their characters addicted to and/or craving anything you feel like! Sorry it's late! It runs through the 7th though if you still want to get a post in!]

The crow is really a terrible creature, isn't it?  They say that they follow after death.  But I wonder... I have seen many of them here in Discedo.  Should we expect death to follow after them?  

Or perhaps it already has.

Ouch! Ugh, what a piece of shit. Do the scientists want their captives to die? I mean, honestly. So pointless, it just means more work for them. Stupid...

[ ...

then he's trailed off for several moments, as if momentarily forgetting what he's supposed to be doing. actually, that is exactly what. his voice is weaker, tired.

... Yeah. I'm only using this because I need something, not to chitchat with a bunch of idiots. I haven't eaten in two days because everything is awful and I can't leave. Not right now, anyway. Or I don't want to. You all should be grateful, by the way. I'm suffering for your safety as I don't think anyone here is as a) selfless or b) smart enough to know how not to screw up everything within a five mile radius.

[and that didn't really make a lick of sense. he seems to realize this.]

I think I said the point in there somewhere, I don't care because my stats are about to take a debuffing and I'mgonnahavet—

I want to take the time to say what I've been feeling for only a short amount of time.

I love this world as much as I love my own world, and all of you in it. [ There is so little emotion here as he is typing. Well, aside from perhaps a little surprise at the fact that he reached for his communicator to say one thing and something completely different resulted. Yep, Sasuke certainly does have all lies for this event! ]

And I do not want to ask for anymore details on what occurred in Lachesistein. Keep those things to yourselves.

 [ So the first thing you see is PINK. Oh god there is so much pink, what the hell is th--oh, it's just Naruto's hair. Lately, he's been mostly keeping under-the radar, in hopes that the color would wash out. But it was becoming  more and more evident that he was going to be stuck with the pink hair for a while. Which was irritating in and of itself, if it weren't for recent events.

Events which made him even more irritated. Regardless! He plans on complaining about something. And since he can't complain about some things, he'll complain about his hair! ]

Oi Fortuna, hey. Make sure to use any weird hair shit the scientists give you, yeah? They can do some pretty cool stuff! Like turn hair pink! It doesn't wash out either, not that I've tried a million times or anything, yeah? Which is awesome, 'cause now I'll have pink hair forever.

[ wait. ]

Shit! I mean, I love having pink hair!

[ Yeah this is just Naruto. Looking kind of mortified. What is he saying!? ]

((The feed starts out very...GREEN!! Looks like someone left their communicator in the grass. Oh well. Guess we'll just have to enjoy the feed and NATURE for a little while. Guess it's the evening... Not much to see right now, you guys.But! Tune in. Sounds like things are indeed happening. The splashing of water faintly indicates where the feed originates. Occasionally the green wall of leaf is blown aside just slightly, showing off the shoreline and plain sky. You can guess it's a nice day out. Not sure why anyone would want to go swimming in this weather, or in THAT water. Crazy bastards, but isn't Discedo full of 'em.

More splashing; silence picks up. The leaf blocking your view rustles again, and a quick rush of the wind blows it momentarily out of the way.

While the scene was fleeting, anyone could rewind back and remind themselves that this is no joke. The pink haired doctor--Sakura, unsurprisingly--lays across the beach with her bodyguard over her. His mouth reaches down to touch hers. It's distant, but telling; the leaf replaces the scene almost immediately.

When it's finally blown out of the way again, some minutes later, she's sitting up, her arms swung around his neck. Shizuo is just then finding his way through this hug.))

((ooc; Backdated to the evening of the 16th over Shizuo's feed. They won't be responding to any messages until the next day (the 17th), MEANING by the time they say anything to anybody, they're caught up in the middle of Truth or Dare!!! Additionally, Sakura and Shizuo were in the hospital that evening, rather than returning home. Housemates should have gotten a message about not showing up. Here's a log if anyone cares for details HAHA.

BTW, for the event: Sakura is lies and obedience, Shizuo is lies and disobedience.))
