It All Worked Out In The End  
[Joel is up on the cockpit, tinkering with the Twin-Screw Universal Controller some. It’s impossible to tell what exactly he’s doing, but it does make a lot of strange noises as he fiddles with it.]

Aaaaand that should just abooooout doooo it...okay, there.

[He closes the bottom compartment on the device.]

Okay everyone, I’ve got it all worked out! Just let me know whenever you’ve said farewells to everyone, and I’ll use this thing and send everyone back to their normal worlds. Just give a holler!

[He regards the Twin-Screw Universal Controller, then looks back up at Cambot.]

Well, I guess we’ve learned not to toy with the laws of the internet.


OOC: [Here we’ve got our final big group thread! Whenever Joel uses the switch, all characters will be instantly returned to their normal universes at the moment they last left them, and Mike and the Bots will be transported down to earth.]

[This is a massive FREE-FOR-ALL thread. Feel free to talk to any other characters as you see fit, whether over Cambot or in person. Feel free to create and jump into multiple threads. You can do this as a network post with action tags, or in prose. You are also free to ask anything of Joel, Mike or the Bots that you want. Go all out, and have total fun!]

Ship Approaching!  
[There’s a bit of static on Cambot’s screen, before Joel’s face appears once again. He’s still in the cockpit of his tiny spaceship.]

Joel: --I’m almost there now, so hang tight! Oh, and by the way: open the pod bay doors, Gypsy!

Gypsy: I’m sorry Joel, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

Joel: Aww come on, Gypsy. I’ll let you talk to Richard Basehart on the phone. I got his number while I was down on Earth.

Gypsy: Oh, well in that case, yesyesyesyesyesyes! Opening Launch Deck doors now!

Joel: Thanks, girl.

[If characters want, they can come and meet Joel down in the Launch Deck now!]

31st Dawn  
[There's some static and Cambot's feed comes up. Riku doesn't seem to know Cam's recording. He's sitting on a pipe in a hallway, looking at the stars outside. He seems to be thinking very seriously about something. He closes his eyes and sighs. The heat alone is enough to open his eyes wide.

Riku simply blinks. Slowly he raises his head and breathes out like one expecting to see their breath in the cold winter air. Instead is a puff of flame. The color is unsettling.]

...This can't be good.

22 Cupcakes...in AMERICA!  
[Yep. Pinkie's finally made her way up to the Twin-Screw Universal Controller. She turns to Cammy with a big grin.]

Alrighty, Cammy, let's DO this thing...IN AMAREICA! [And she throws the switch hard!]

30th Dawn  
[Riku is sitting in his room. In the dark. He looks pretty cozy, actually. It looks like he's reading something with only the aid of a little pen light. The only light in the room is the pen light, a little light from under the door, and some from Cambot. Riku looks up.]

Hey IN AMERICA!. At least the controller this time gave us something better to work with IN AMERICA!. [Cambot nods.]

Cam, show them the pictures Namine and I took from the subpod IN AMERICA!. [Cambot displays three pictures.] We saw something weird but pretty outside over the world IN AMERICA!. Anyone know what it is IN AMERICA!? Or what causes it IN AMERICA!? I thought there wasn't any magic in this world IN AMERICA!.

...Okay, this is getting kind of annoying IN AMERICA!

[After Joel and the Doctor's transmissions, Minako looks up at Cambot.]

...He's...he's really only a few days away?

[Cambot nods.]

Well! You know what that means! We need to get ready! We have to pack up!

. . .

But first I'm throwing the switch because I'm not a cat and I keep tripping over things.

[Oh yeah, did we mention she was next to the Controller? She so is.

Switches pulled...!]

21 Cupcakes: The Darkness and the Shadows  
Psssst! Hey, Cammy! Over here!

[The Cambot turns about, finally locating Pinkie and 90s Kid curled up together around a lantern in an otherwise dark room. Pinkie appears somewhat less perturbed by this, draping her forelegs over the kid's shoulders and leaning her chin on one to talk to the robot.]

So yeah, I know everyone's kinda freaked out right now! I am too - I mean, the darkness IS pretty scary sometimes, especially right now that it's being all big and shadowy and toothy-looking! [She giggles a little nervously.] It's funny, I haven't even been scared of the dark since I was a teeny weeny itty bitty little Pinkie-winkie! I totally got over all that, though, ages and ages ago! You wanna know how?

17 April 2013 @ 09:58 pm
29th Dawn  
[Riku's in the hallway, right under a light. Sweat covers his brow. He stares at a door contemplatively and apprehensively, a hand over his heart. He looks down at his chest and closes his eyes a moment. When he opens them again, he places his flashlight on the floor and balls a fist.

He doesn't seem to either know or care that Cambot's there.]

...It can't stop me.

[Suddenly Riku throws the door open and steps into the darkness quickly, slamming the door behind him. His breathing quickly grows so loud it can be heard on the other side of the door. Whimpers, followed by short cries come before a scream. There's some scrambling on the other side of the door before Riku throws himself out, slamming the door back closed. He sits under the light, holding himself. Perspiration shines on his arms as he whimpers slightly. ...This doesn't seem to be the first time he's done this. His hands go to grip his head.]

...I'mnotafraidofthedarkI'mnotafraidofthedarkI'mNOTAFRAID OF THE DAAARK!

[Riku turns and looks like he's going to reach for the handle again, but his shaking hand falls short and he goes back to holding himself tightly.] I can... I can I can I can...

Twenty-second Key  
[Sora is bundled up in the blankets on his bed, looking a tad bit nervous. There's an extra towel taped up over his window so that you can't see the darkness of space outside, lit from below by a heart-shaped night light. He turns to Cambot, eyes big.]

Hey, Cambot? Do you think you can keep your lights on again tonight?

[He thinks a little bit.] Maybe there's another night light in the theatrical deck, too...

Poor Fool Tom  
[The Twin-Screw Controller can't stay unused for too long...one of the Tom Servos from the Tom Servo deck has apparently wandered up to the top deck again. This one appears to be dressed in a top hat, and has a monocle.]

I say, old chaps! The air conditioning apparatus appears to be putting out far too much cold air for one's comfort!

It's about high time we remedied this situation! I'll just turn the ol' apparatus switch here...

[And with that, the Tom Servo flips the switch again.]
12 April 2013 @ 07:18 pm
Someone has poor timing...  
[Roxas is unprepared when the satellite rights itself, having not been watching Cambot when the switch was hit. He's not watching Cambot because it doesn't follow him into the bathroom (it sometimes just films the door while he's in there, like now) and he's just getting out of the shower. Sure, it's awkward with the ship tilted, but it's doable.

Until the ship suddenly rights itself and stepping out of the shower turns into falling out of the shower. While the only video is the closed door, the sound is quite clear. Aside from the initial yelp, the only sound is a low grumbling, which might be fairly colorful if anyone could hear it clearly. Eventually, the grumbling stop and faint sounds indicating someone toweling off and getting dressed can be heard.

Cambot, if you're filming when I open this door...

[Of course Cambot is filming when he opens the door. Aside from the beginnings of some bruises from the fall, he doesn't seem to really be hurt. He's definitely annoyed, though. He just shakes his head and walks away, obviously headed for his room.

Imagine his surprise to get there and find a mint on his pillow. The jerboa is sniffing at it curiously. Roxas picks up the mint and looks at Cambot, clearly puzzled. Cambot bobs and tips to the side briefly, its version of a shrug.

29th Dawn  
[There is water all down Riku's front. Riku looks... Well, he looks outright grumpy. Cambot statics a moment, then pulls back. He's just coming out of the bathroom, stumbling slightly from the slope.] You'd better not be recording.

[Silence.] You are, aren't you, Cam?

[A pause before DING-DING! Riku holds his face in his palm.] It's water. The sink overflowed. Again. [Cambot focuses on Riku's white vest. Yes, it's clean water. Riku pushes past, he's clearly going somewhere.] I'm sick of not even being able to use the bathroom without nearly making a gross mess. I try to keep it clean. I don't even know how you girls are managing. [Climbing the stairs is interesting... Riku doesn't trust the elevator like this.]

[He gets to the top deck and b-lines for one thing: the twin-screw controller. He goes straight for it and pulls the lever without a hint of hesitation. You know he's ticked.]

Be careful what you ask for  
[When everyone wakes up in the morning, they may find their closets aren't... quite as orderly as they were the day before. Things are slightly misplaced, shifted around, which would be easy enough to blame on the sudden change of direction on the SOL.]

[Until later in the day when the cambots all click on, showing the Cafeteria deck and it's new... partytime finery. Zidane is in the background, tail lashed around one of the light fixtures to hold himself up as he hangs a "streamer" made of underwear - bras, panties, boxers, and briefs all stapled together. Selphie is in the foreground, holding up something awful.]

Okay, who do these belong to? Ew.

[Zidane then chimes in from behind:]

I'll give you a hundred gil to parade around the SOL in just that for ten minutes!

[Selphie cringes.] 200 gil to keep your clothes on. Please.

Awwwww! You're supposed to encourage people to do stupid stuff, Selphie!

But what if they're Squall's?

...Well, either I got drunk when I fell asleep or someone messed with the controller again.

[Hey, Minako! Why so bum?]

I still can't believe you guys coughed up cute live animals. Totally jealous. All I got was this thing attached to a cord--

[At this, she held up...this.]

--and a card that says "App Store". Its nice-looking, but what the hell am I supposed to do with this?! At least with an animal I know I'm supposed to feed it and pet it and junk!


Also, seriously, is the ship tilted or is it really just me?

Mission 26  
[Looks like Xion's taking look at the Twin-screw universal controller now. A kitten sits on her shoulder, but considering the latest event, it's probably best not to ask how she obtained it.

The kitten mews plaintively, and Xion offers it soothing scritches.]

It'll be okay.

[While this most recent development isn't as bad as some others, letting it just continue probably isn't a good idea. Xion coughs slightly before reaching out to pull the lever.]
02 April 2013 @ 03:36 pm
Someone is confused, very confused  
[He's just finished rinsing his mouth out in one of the bathrooms when Cambot finds him. There is a tiny rodent perched on his head, blending in with his hair a little bit. Upon closer inspection, it turns out to be a jerboa. Its fur is a little wet, but it doesn't seem any worse for the wear otherwise.

Cambot hasn't gotten his lens fixed yet, but he seems a little more interested in the rodent at the moment. He makes a questioning beep at Roxas.

No, I don't know where it came from.

[Other than maybe some for of hammerspace, but he doesn't even want to contemplate it. He coughs a little and makes a face before addressing anyone that might be listening.]

Do you think it's safe to say that we're going to see a lot of ridiculous things before Joel gets here? Every time that switch has been hit, something weird happens. First one had us talking weird, then there was... the crazy need to invest, then whatever it did the third time it was hit. And then...

[He snickers a little, but his amusement is a little subdued. Everyone thought they'd been raised by wolves. That meant memory tampering. Still... some things had happened that a few people were likely never going to live down.]

Uh. I guess you could call that last thing a walk on the wild side? And now this. Did anyone else cough up something weird?

[As an after thought, he gently removes the small rodent from his head. He's obviously not sure what to do with it, but it seems like he might be considering looking after it. He looks at the rodent, at Cambot and then the rodent again.]

I wonder if there's anything on the media deck with information on this little guy.
Current Mood: Mildly amused

Eighth Number  
[Oh...oh dear. That's a rather unpleasant retching sound coming from that bathroom. Cambot hovers uncertainly, before slowly drawing closer, making some solicitous beeping sounds.]

Cam? [Harvey staggers to the door, leaning against the frame. He looks awful: flushed and feverish, with his hat and jacket missing and his bowtie undone. Nonetheless, he still manages to summon a half-decent glare for the robot, who quails backwards.] You ever film me doin' somethin' like that again, I'm gonna -

[He breaks off in a hacking cough, doubling over with his face in his sleeve. Something clatters to the ground, and he and Cam both look down at the shiny silver harmonica for a long moment.]

...I think I need to go lie down.
02 April 2013 @ 01:51 am
[Cambot's following 90s Kid around again. This time the kid's in the bathroom, apparently rinsing his mouth out with half a bottle of mouthwash. Oh, and there's a frog hopping around his feet. What's that about?

He finally spits out the last of the mouthwash in the sink, groaning and looking totally grossed out. Then he notices the camera.]

--Cambot! What're you doin' taping me now, man?!

[Cambot starts to turn to go away, but then 90s Kid scrabbles in front of him bouncing back as always] ...actually, wait, don't go yet. I actually wanted to say somethin'.

Pinkie Pie! Where are you at, dude? I uh...I got this great new idea for a prank and I wanted to test it!

Eleventh Sunrise  
[Amaterasu has had quite enough of this effect. She may be a wolf, and she may be mother to all her world, but being this kind of mother wolf is not what she'd rather be doing!]

[She keeps testing the Twin-Screw Universal Controller, until the switch finally gives. Whatever happens now, hopefully it'll be an improvement on this!]
