13th Dawn [Fun number, backdated slightly to before some others]  
[Riku's sitting by a window somewhere with his guitar. No, he's actually not in his room, which is probably too bad for anyone happening by. He's plucking the strings a bit.]

You guys ever look at the stars and think about all those places out there? It makes you feel tiny. I remember talking to Sora once about how little our islands were.

[He begins to pluck the strings. This is probably one of the best ways you'll ever hear this melody. And slowly he begins to sing. He can hit tenor. Go figure.]

Oh I had once said
Looking at the sky
To my great best friend--
You all know that guy--
That our home has not changed
I just think that it’s strange
It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after a-all
It’s a small, small world.

And he said to me
that our world’s just one
of a larger place
when all’s said and done.
You will see on a ship
when you take a long trip
It’s a small world after all.

[And after a beat Riku's eyes go wide as he realizes whatever's been affecting Sora has gotten HIM now. Slowly his hand goes over his face. He growls in annoyance.] Great.

(Sorry guys, I couldn't find this version on Youtube.)

12th Dawn [Primarily Audio]  
[There's a cloth over Cambot's lens. An equine shadow can be seen with the occasional twinkle shining through the cloth. It looks like the pony's wearing something, based on the shadow shape? Maybe a cloak? Or maybe just a sheet. Or maybe it's trying to be a ghost! It's make sense, since it appears to be floating. Hard to tell. And for some reason in the background a certain song can be heard. It repeats itself. Cambot isn't the one playing it.]

[A voice comes over from the figure. It's deep and smooth, though the tones and mannerisms are all somehow still distinctly casual and natural.]

I need a hand. Can someone help me tie these hand weights to my feet? I'm tired of floating off everywhere, but I'm not having a lot of luck doing this with my mouth and a hoof.

11th Dawn  
To anyone who's normally a pony... I have a question. You don't exactly have normal horse diets. Pinkie Pie, I've seen you eat plenty of sweets. But obviously you don't eat the same stuff humans do. I made the mistake of having eggs for breakfast the other day. I've been eating a lot of rabbit food. Aside from that and sweets, what can you guys eat?

[A teenage boy can't have his meat, what else can he do?]

...And Sora? ...Can we talk somewhere? It's about something weird.

Tenth Dawn  
[Cambot pulls away from a head of silver hair laying on a pillow. That's nothing new. Riku's sleeping in as usual. Cambot makes a loud buzzing noise reminiscent of an alarm clock. And slowly Riku rolls over, opening an eye on a long face. A very long face. So long it could be considered... Equine?]

Cut it out, just let me sleep. [Riku closes his eyes again, reaching up to scratch his face with a... hoof? His brows furrow and he puts his hoof back up and opens his eyes to see why that felt funny.]


[Riku falls out of bed, revealing a silver-maned, dark blue pony with black hooves and a cutie mark that looks like the not-quite-heartless symbol he's come to be associated with. Odd, he has his vest and wrist wrap on, he didn't go to bed with those. He looks over himself with a slight look of dismay, which quickly devolves into one of irritation.]

Okay, guys, very funny, who drugged the food?

Ninth Dawn [Backdated before the -Inator]  
[Cambot focuses on Riku, who’s leaning on the edge of a window near an airlock. He’s looking out at what may be a nebula. It’s hard to tell, since it’s far away, but there are bits of blue and purple in the distant fluff. Cambot starts playing music. Is that Enya? Yes. Yes it is. Riku sighs a little before he turns, realizing the relaxing music is coming from Cambot.]

Are you recording again? Why? [He shakes his head, but then he looks past Cambot. There’s a high-pitched, girly scream getting louder. Cambot turns to show Riku’s shade fleeing down the hallway towards them... And past. Riku’s taken a ready stance, but the shade goes for the airlock control panel. After about two seconds, the door opens and it leaps in, shouting something with a horrified expression to Riku. The door closes, and the airlock opens from the other side. The doppelganger floats into space, looking relieved before bamphing out of existence.]

[Riku just looks back at Cambot with the biggest “What the heck?” expression perhaps ever seen on him.]

Eighth Dawn  
[Cambot is clearly heading through a doorway into a very dim area. It turns, focusing in on the bright hallway and adjusting to see two silhouettes. One is of Riku. The other is also of Riku, but tied to a chair. The standing one uses his foot to shove the chair in. It slides across the floor, almost toppling as it comes to a stop. Cambot adjusts so the picture is clearer in the dim light. It’s Riku’s shade, looking slightly dazed and battered, but amazingly ungagged. Whether the rough appearance is due to the previous fight, being kept unconscious or as payback for anything that’s come out of its mouth while ungagged, it’s unclear. The door slams behind.]

Sixth Dawn  
[Riku is in front of Cambot, looking less-than amused... There is a cut on his chin, a very bad shaving cut fro the look of it. His doppelganger is leaning over his shoulder, saying something. Riku's trying his best to ignore it.]

I'm sure you guys have noticed our new roommates. Does anyone NOT have one? Or is everyone I've seen so far just lucky that w--

[He pauses, then looks over his shoulder at his double.] ...Again, nice try.

Any clue where they came fro-- [He looks back at Cambot, trying to ignore his double when it takes him by the shoulder. Again it says something.]

No... That's not true. [He stands.] I will never, EVER let that happen again. [Riku turns to leave, and the transmission ends.]
04 January 2012 @ 01:27 am
[Cambot pans down, a little static-y, to the edge of a bed. A shoe is sticking out underneath it. The bot slowly floats down to reveal the figure underneath it.]

[Riku is under 90's Kid's bed, asleep. His vest is thrown to one side, and somehow his black shirt is backwards and mostly unzipped. A bright purple bra is tied around his head like a pair of goggles, and he's face down in a teddy bear.]
16 December 2011 @ 11:54 pm
Fourth Dawn  
[The transmission starts when Riku has obviously given his Cambot a smack. It's static-ey for a moment, but clears to reveal Riku sitting down with a guitar in his lap. He smiles a little, but says nothing, turning his attention to the guitar.]

[And he plays.]

[After the song, he smirks and the transmission cuts out.]
30 November 2011 @ 12:37 am
Third Dawn  
[Riku's on the nature deck, holding a horse by some reigns. It looks like it's eating the last of a carrot.] Hey Sora. You probably noticed we got armor, shields, lances... And these guys.

[Cambot inserts "Epona's Song." Riku pauses briefly, but goes back to it, knowing better than to question anymore.]

So. [He smirks.] Wanna give these guys a show?

[There's some supplies in the background. ...And a lute.]
17 November 2011 @ 02:16 am
Second Dawn  
[Cambot has zoomed into a green mug of hot cocoa with a peppermint stick sticking out of it. It slowly zooms out, revealing another one next to it with an orange slice on the rim. As it continues to zoom out, it shows Riku, hair in a ponytail and wearing blue hooded robes.]

If my folks taught me one thing, it's how to take hot chocolate and make it really good. If anyone wants to try some, see me. I don't use the synthesizers.

[Christmas music starts playing.]

Hey, knock that off, it's not-- [The feed cuts out.]

First Dawn  
[Riku’s glaring into the camera. In fact, it’s been broadcasting a while as he’s been getting stuff from lower decks. The image and audio quality is still pretty bad, but anyone could recognize that look even if it were a bad jpeg file from 1999. His hand vanishes behind the camera view before the camera shakes. Riku’s clearly smacked it to try to get it to work better.]

Figures my "welcome gift" would be busted already. Great. Why won’t this shut off?

[He turns around and goes to get a comic book that was sitting on his bed. The camera follows. Attack of the Killer Hot Glue Gun Robots. Yep from the lower decks all right. The kitten poster is still on the wall. ...In his defense not much is decorated yet. When he turns around, he leans back, looking slightly surprised at it having come so close. Darn, that was such a good view of his nose hair.]

Are you going to follow me around everywhere? [He groans, then walks past. Riku walks down the hall, giving someone a nod in another room. Finally he arrives at a door and opens it up. Oh look, there’s the toilet. Riku tosses the comic on top of the toilet paper holder and turns, hands on his belt. His eyes widen as he discovers Cambot’s in the doorway.]

Get out! [Riku slams the door, unwittingly clipping the robot, which bounces off the walls a few times. It lands on the floor, still functioning. A voice can be heard in the bathroom as the cambot slowly picks itself off the floor. There’s a sound like flipping pages.] ...Wait, what’s this got to do with vampires?

[The broadcast continues, but the bot leaves, as requested.]
