20 Cupcakes: The Musical!  
[You know that old intercom system Deep 13 has? There's a typical low screech as it starts up, followed by a few muffled taps.]

Is this thingy working? Oooh, it is!

HellOOOOOOOOOO, Deep 13~! This is DJ Pinkie Pie here, on the late late late show! Now I noticed that a lot of people have been feeling awfully grumpy and mean ever since we got here! Luckily, DJ Pie knows the super-special secret Ponyville cure for sad faces everywhere! So get your little confuzzled heads ready to be cheered up!

[And then...it starts. You cannot run. You cannot hide.]

Twentieth (Evil) Key  
[Mirrored Sora appears onscreen, looking mean as ever, but also perhaps a bit suspicious. Has he been paying attention to some of the other Cambot conversations? It's impossible to know right now...]

Some of you losers have been real chatty lately. I hope at least some of that talk's been about an experiment to send up there already?

Or if that can't be managed for some stupid reason, maybe some other people like Minako have a better idea for something nice and painful? I'm alllll ears.

Riku! Are you lazing around again?!

1 EEEEEVIL Chain (?)  
[...Oh. Oh boy. Its Min-Venus with the bracelets. And she is looking positively eeeeeeeeevil as she giggles and smirks!

oh god oh god oh god please let this work please let people think she is this evil. So lucky her evil self just tosses her diary wherever]

Well. You boys up there really want pain, don't you~? You want...an experiment~~? I'm sure I can arrange for that to happen.


So, fellow Deep 13ers? Who here is feeling especially evil today~~~? Perhaps enough to help a girl like me out~~~~~?

[i.e. Here's to hoping she's not the only one internally freaking out by this turn of events.]

1st Void  

[Cambot flicks on to reveal a boy in a strangely organic looking black and red bodysuit. The boy unsettlingly looks very similar to Sora sans the black hair and gold eyes. But when he finally speaks, it's clear by his tone he's anything but Sora]

So, anyone on this crate smart enough to tell me where the hell am I and where's the exit? And don't give me that "There's no way out" crap. There has to be a way out.

19 Cupcakes: Terror Firma  
Wow! Is this Deep 13? [Pinkie's trotting around her new home, observing her surroundings.] This is so cool! Now Dr. Forrester and Frank are up there...and we're down here! It's just lucky I brought my party cannon with me, this place could totally use some spiffing up! Did everyone else get here okay? It got kinda bumpy there at the end!

Hey, hey! Dr. F! Now that we've both got new places, we should totally throw joint housewarming parties! First you come down here and help us warm our house, and then we'll all go up there and help with yours! It'll be GREAT!
02 February 2013 @ 11:08 am
[Forrester shows up on the viewscreen...unfortunately, it’s not the Forrester that the SOL knows, but instead Emperor Forrester. He looks very unhappy right now.]

Alternate Dr. F: Thanks to your little attempts at humorizing the experiments away, all the humans here on earth are un-evolving and starting to revolt, ya spoilsports!

[In the background, there can be heard some crowds yelling and chanting outside:]

Crowds: Dinos gotta go! Dinos gotta go! Dinos gotta go!

Alternate Dr. F: Soooo, I’m afraid you’ll have to die now! I’m sending my elite forces straight to your Satellite to inflict The Experiment directly on you!

[And then, Emperor Forrester shows on the viewscreen an image of the experiment that broke humanity...it’s the copy of Left Behind that Discord corrupted! The story reel is seething with chaotic power, even just as an image.]

Alternate Dr. F: And if that doesn’t work, we’ll just blow you up. So I’d suggest just taking a big hearty draft of The Experiment instead. Toodle-oodles, troubled poodles!

[The screen fitzes, and switches to a view that Rocket #9 is kind enough to give: it looks like there’s a fleet of fighter jet-type spaceships heading straight for the SOL! The screen flickers again, and shows Captain Salt Lake in his cockpit at the head of the fleet. He looks even angrier than Emperor Forrester.]

Salt Lake: I looked up my family history last night...it was you man-beasts that beat the crap out of Great-great-great grandfather Utah! [He pulls down his shades.] It’s PERSONAL now!

[An attack is coming on the SOL! If the lead ship gets too close, The Experiment That Broke Humanity will be automatically loaded into the theater! Characters can get into the subpods on the Satellite and try to fight off the attackers, but considering the dinosaur firepower, it might be more prudent to run! It’s up to you!]

Twenty-Fifth Link.  
Almost done.

[Why, yes, that is Namine with a black Sharpie marker. Looks like she found something to write/draw with, but really, is the wall between the staircase entrance and elevator on the fourth deck a good place for that? It's not even a very nice drawing, just a big frowny face from the look of it.

She seems pretty intent on her work, though. Normally, she tries to take everything on the SoL in stride, but having her movement restricted AND one of her main coping mechanisms taken away seems to be taking its toll. To the point at which she's given up using even subtle methods of protest/fighting back.

Finished, she looks up and finally seems to notice she's live on Cambot. Apparently she hadn't meant to make this public.]

Cambot! I thought I said no recording.

[She reaches to turn him off, but he floats away. Time for a rare Namine scowl. Anyone who looks closely, though, might notice that her hair has some blond tint to it, and her eyes are a pale, pale blue.]

Nineteenth Key  
[It looks like Sora is still stuck in black and white, but he’s not letting that or any of the other Satellite restrictions stop him now. He’s situated outside the nature deck, since the theatrical one is closed right now, and looks determined.]

Hey, everyone! I know this week’s black and white rules and stuff are being a pain, but we can’t let that stop us from doing something fun and creative. We should put on a skit or movie of some kind! If making fun of the experiments is helping the humans on earth get better, than doing even more fun stuff should help them even more!

We can bring stuff up to the top deck and do it there, so that the girls aren’t left out, too.

Twelfth Theft  

[Umm, you know that thing where you feel uncomfortable if you start speaking out against authority? Yeah, guess who's not paying attention to that at all. If you look close, you can tell Zidane's still feeling the weirdness because his facial expression is a little off, but he's spent his life speaking his mind about everything (and, on a more subliminal side, overcoming oppression) so like hell he's not going to do it now.]

[Also he's just goddamn pissed if 90% of his expression is anything to go by. While he's been annoyed on the Satellite before, usually he just more or less goes with the flow, but this just hit the last straw for him. Because he's standing outside the theatrical deck and the Satellite not only stuck a bigass lock on the door, but took away all his picks so he can't just sneak his way inside.]

It's not enough to take away all our colors and anything that we can use to express ourselves, it's even worse that you're making the girls stay in the most boring part of this ship, but now we can't even open these doors?! Who in the HELL are you to say what we can and can't do, we are NOT your PUPPETS!

[And apparently he's... really serious about proving that wtf Zidane where did you get an axe?! It's not a huge axe, no, but it's still an axe, and his clothing isn't restrictive enough to stop him using it. He grabs it from where he left it propped up against the wall and immediately starts swinging it at the lock, over and over, striking the metal repeatedly in an attempt to get in.]

[He's not quite aware that the tip of his tail is starting to turn blond again...]

Mission 24  
[Xion looks a little disgruntled today. That could be because her dress is not something she would have chosen for herself. Cambot thinks it's nice, but if she doesn't like it, why did she ask him to record?

The answer becomes clear fairly quickly when she starts to speak.]

Has anyone else had trouble going beyond the cafeteria? I wanted to go to the media deck, since I can't train in any of the clothes this week, but I can't get there. None of the elevator buttons but the ones for the first four decks would work.

The 11th Burst of Flame  
[Lea stomps into his room, with cardigan diamond shaped vest. Oh boy, he looks dork as ever. Like more so than usual, due to the 50s style coming back. He folded his arms as poked the cambot.]

Oi, anyone got some explanation as to why all the art supplies are missing?!

I can't stand the black and white scene.

2 Feathers  
[Well look who it is! That newcomer who never seems to do anything but hide in his room. Well this time he's actually come out, dressed up in a blouse and poodle skirt. Yes, you read that right. He's had to modify it a little for his wings and tail, of course, and he even has a little speckled bow tied around one headwing, isn't that cute.]

Anybody want to tell me why I'm suddenly several colors fewer?

40 Love Chains  
[When the feed comes on, it's Minako. But...she looks decidedly...not well. At all. She's pale as a sheet, has black circles under her eyes, and said eyes are wide and bloodshot. She is sitting in her bedroom, in her pajamas, hugging her knees and rocking back and forth.]

Can't sleep. I can't sleep. They'll get me...they'll get me...

I can't let them....I can't...the rats...the rats...

[Slowly, she turned to the camera, her eyes widening even more.]

Sora...Sora...Pinkie...why...what did the rats really do to the Atlanteans?! And the Asian rat...the Asian rat...

[At this, Minako begins to shake.]

Sleep no more...Minako shall sleep no more...

18 Cupcakes: Now Eating Your Face  
Hey, guys! So you remember those Beast Cupcakes I was making for Emperoctopus Forrester's party? Yeeeeeeeeah, some of them kinda got out.

Don't worry, though! They're wayyyyyy too small to actually eat anyone. Just give them a little something to munch on and bring them back to the kitchen while they're busy!

Mission 23  
[Cambot is hanging out on the media deck, wandering a wander and playing the Jeopardy theme while his person reads something. Apparently he's bored.

Xion looks up, sighing.]

Cambot, you've been playing that for--Oh, you're recording.

[Not looking too happy about the surprise, she holds up the book she was reading. It looks like a kid's book, with very large picture of a dinosaur on the cover.]

I thought it might be a good idea to find some information about dinosaurs since that's part of what we're dealing with here, but I can't find more than basic information. Does anybody else know much about them?

39 Love Chains  
[And...here is Minako again. Man, she keeps disappearing lately, doesn't she? And--what is that red thing she's tossing aside off camera? It looks like a mask--]


[...Well, must not have been important. That box she's holding looks interesting, though, and Minako herself looks fired up.]

Sorry I've been incommunicado, but this was super important! I was waiting on a package from Earth, and it finally arrived in third-class mail!

[And thus she unwraps it. One might notice that there is a sticker on it - a clue to the recipient. And as she rips open the box, her eyes widen slightly at the contents. It could be in awe. It could be horror. It could be both.]

Everyone...I have it. We have it. And there's only one thing we can do with it.

[And slowly she raises up the item in the box. It is....a video tape dramatically marked "THE EXPERIMENT THAT GOT KIND OF CLOSE TO BREAKING HUMANITY BUT NOT TOTALLY! DO NOT EVER WATCH!"

Underneath those words are smaller, less obvious words: "BE KIND, REWIND".]

We have to watch this.

Twenty-fourth Link  
[Christmas morning, and Cambot is up and roving around. His person isn’t where she should be at this time of night, and it’s up to him to find her. Time to check all the usual places.

There she was, on the theatrical deck. It looked like she’d fallen asleep at her worktable. She must have been up late making presents last night! There are certainly a lot of (poorly-wrapped) packages laying beside her--one for everyone it looks like. The paper seems to be something she made, too, and has Christmas trees, stars, snowmen, and Santas printed on it.

Namine herself seems to still be pretty well asleep, though as Cambot records she shifts position slightly. To wake her or not to wake her...]

[OOC: Namine made Christmas presents! Everyone gets a picture--further details when they’re opened.]

Mission 22  
[Cambots feed opens up to show a smiling Xion. Really, she's being so good about being filmed lately he's wondering if something's up he should be watching out for.]

Since it's Christmas tomorrow, I was looking around the media deck to see if I could find anything interesting about it. There wasn't a lot that was good, but I found this video. Cambot?

[Cambot obligingly plays the video.]

Eighth Sunrise / Twenty-second Link  
[Ammy sits at a small table, a table that appears to be one of many in a row along the edge of the deck. She’s wearing a con badge around her neck as well. On the table before her is a series of ink drawings and paintings...some of them are scenes from Nippon and her friends from home, and some of them are from friends she’s met on the Satellite. There’s also a small can on the edge of the table for people to drop money into. She glances up as Cambot comes in towards the tables.]

[Namine also has a small table, set up right next to Ammy’s. It’s covered with pictures in various media; pastels, crayons, colored pencils, and several different kinds of paint. As with Ammy’s display, the subjects range from places like the mansion in Twilight Town to all her friends on the satellite. From the obvious difference in skill level between some of the drawings, it looks like she’s been practicing a lot. She’s also managed to find a cash box somewhere. When she notices Cambot, she smiles.]

Hello everyone. Amaterasu and I noticed that there was this place for artists to set up a kind of shop, and thought we’d try it. We’ll be here for a little while if anyone wants to buy a picture.

[Well, Namine explained it all pretty well! Ammy glances back at Cambot, and barks once in agreement. Maybe Cambot will also be willing to translate prices for her. She doesn’t usually sell art, but hey, this is all part of the pretend aspect with this week.]

Eighteenth Key  
[Sora is looking over the changes for this week...huh, it looks like he's in black and white. He shakes his arm, and it wobbles like a rubber hose.]

Hey...this is kinda familiar!

Did we go back in time this week, and without the time machine? Except the rest of the Satellite looks about normal...either way, it's kinda weird!
