Hi chelonauts!

Since we've been getting into the habit of allowing late-in-the-month posted event logs to be used for AC across two months, we've added a new tag to make it easier to find those posts. From now on, these logs will be labeled with %ac-carryover - but if you have any questions regarding these kind of logs, don't hesitate to let us know :)

[Valdis appears more relaxed and content than usual, her hair is braided and pulled over one shoulder.]

Though it was some time ago, I appreciated your defense of me against the unfounded charges anonymously posted to the network and am pleased to say that I have spoken with Arbitrator Eliyen and have been reinstated as the KPD's Chief of Police.

The past few months have not been ideal, but I would like to thank Pepper, Gene and Kaliel for handling the KPD in my absence. It isn't an easy job and it was made even more difficult due to the atrocities committed by the Cultists. The KPD has several of these cultists in custody, but they are nothing more than pawns in a greater plan. I promise that we will find the masterminds and they will pay for their crimes.

[Now for the new things]

To better serve Keeliai, I will be doubling the number of officers in the coming months. In addition, we acquired four Kirin a few months ago for a mounted force, but need a single person to devote some time to their care. If anyone is interested in that position, please let me know.

That is all.

[When the screen first flickered on, Midii seemed...almost distracted.  As if she were functioning on autopilot.  Like the broadcast was pre-planned, and some unforeseen circumstance put a damper on the moment.  Or she could have just been tired.  The circles under her eyes were faint but notable.]

I came across something interesting in my...studies.

[A slight pause at that word, and only then did she appear to collect herself enough to lift her gaze and stare at the camera directly.  There were a small pile of flowers off to one side, and she picked one of them up, twirling it gently in front of her as if contemplating its very existence.]

Most of the plants I've been harvesting are supposed to have medicinal qualities.  Healing.  I've been learning how to identify and use them properly.  But there was this one book...[Here, she paused to glance around her before laying eyes on something just below the camera, and seemed satisfied.]...this one here.  I found it when I was shopping in the markets the other day.  It says that flowers can also be used to send messages to people.  Not just to tell someone you like them, or apologize for something you did wrong.  More like...each flower can carry a very specific meaning.  Almost like a puzzle.  

I'd never thought about that before, but it seemed interesting.  And maybe useful for people to know at any point in the future.  I don't...think I've ever seen many people using coded languages here.  [Aside from encryptions, but she purposely refrained from bringing those up.]  And I know many of us don't all speak or read in the same languages.  But...I don't know...maybe it could even be a game?  Or...something.

[She seemed to be losing her train of thought as she went along, pausing just long enough to let out a small yawn.]

Sorry.

Where was I?  Oh, right.  This one, for example.... [she held up the red leaf-like flower in her hand] ...can be used to make a certain kind of poison.  But for some reason, it's hidden message means an abundance of welcoming hospitality.  Strange, isn't it?  That a flower can mean one thing, but be used for something else entirely.

I wonder...if that's true for all the flowers in Keelai.

I am interested in power.

[...perhaps not the most reassuring of openings, but at least it was straight to the point?]

Training for the duration of time I have, both individually and with a mentor--[yes, she considers Kylo a 'mentor']--has allowed me to achieved a greater understanding of the concept.  However, with that understanding has come...curiosity, if you will.

Many of those designated as Foreigners have shown signs of possessing unique abilities from a seemingly infinite number of sources.  Some of these abilities are innate, while others appear to be borrowed through external means.  I am curious about these abilities and their origins, if you are willing to oblige me with this information.

[Though her voice and tone appeared neutral throughout, it was clear from the look in her eyes that Aya was more than simply curious.  She was looking for...something.  Something which she would not explicitly say aloud.]

Thank you.

[Kratos does not often attend the network, so may not be familiar to most. He has the air of someone understated, with an impassive face; but those who know him will note he looks more relaxed than usual. He's almost smiling.

[His hair is also floofy, like he's been hit with static, and his clothes are damp. He doesn't seem to mind.]

Would anyone be averse to my bringing some storms to bear? This humidity and cloud-cover is ripe for rain, but the storms appear to be holding back.

I would not like to inconvenience anyone. If the city officials or the farmers would prefer I leave the weather as it should be, I'll refrain.

[ooc: This is a minor player plot! This has been given the go-ahead, so no NPCs will object. (If no NPCs reply here, I will assume NPC go-aheads are given to Kratos privately.) Otherwise just assume there's more rain than originally forecast and an easing of salt toward the Foreigners.]

On the seventh of July, a strange necklace suddenly appears in the city. 



It sits there, waiting. Don't you want to try it on?

[OOC: This is the start of the dragon plot. See here for more information.]

Mr. Holmes isn't here any more.

[Conan pauses for a moment, as if he was about to say something else. But really, nothing else needed to be said. Anyone who cared enough to know about Sherlock's whereabouts were smart enough to draw their own conclusions from that.

But on to his other business. Sherlock's disappearance had once again left Conan in the position of being an eight-year-old with no caretaker. Even here he couldn't hold an apartment by himself. Which left him with very few options.]


Is anyone looking for a roommate? I have an apartment, but I don't think I'll be allowed to stay here by myself.

The following characters are identified as having not made AC due to insufficient activity and have been automatically reclaimed:

Jack Frost | Rise of the Guardians | [personal profile] wintershepherd

Ineligible For Reclaim:
The following characters are currently identified as having not made AC, either from insufficient activity or from failing to have their AC reported on the post AND are ineligible to reclaim due to having been previously reclaimed in the past six months, in accordance with the activity check details outlined on the rules page:

Sheena Fujibayashi | Tales of Symphonia | [personal profile] ninjainviolet (reclaimed March 2017)
