Tenth Sunrise  
[Okay. Amaterasu is concerned on a number of levels now. Everyone is acting very strange! She faces Cambot, pulls out her paper and brush, and paints up a quick sketch:]

[She then shows the picture to Cambot as if he should be paying close attention. People should not be behaving like wolves! They should be behaving like people! Otherwise someone's gonna get hurt...or horribly embarrassed!]

Someone is... at least a little civilized... maybe  
[Roxas is in his room, lounging on the bed and bouncing a tennis ball off the wall, catching on the rebound and tossing it again. He looks annoyed, though there's no way to tell why he's annoyed.

He seems to be taking to the civilized life better than everyone else, though. It's entirely possible that mama wolf explained to him that he's not actually a wolf and that when/if others of his kind found him, he would do better to learn their ways. Who knows? When he notices Cambot, he catches the ball and holds it.

After a pause, he makes a shooing gesture. Cambot pans side to side. That's a no. Roxas makes a noise that sounds distinctly like a growl. He's not completely civilized, it seems. At no point does he speak. When Cambot still doesn't take the hint, Roxas tosses the tennis ball at him.

Oh, that's a cracked lens. Roxas leaves the room, upright and surprisingly comfortable with it. Maybe mama wolf was familiar enough humans to make sure human puppy was moving the way he should?

28th Moon. With three wolves.  
[Riku is trotting down the hall with something in his mouth. ...Something dead. It appears to be a bird, maybe waterfoul. He comes up to a door and drops it on the floor in front of it, sitting back on his haunches. He holds his head high, looking happy with himself and starts panting. Riku scratches at the door, but it's cracked open slightly. Sticking his nose in, he sniffs a little, but stops short of pushing it open. He waits.

It's Namine's door.

...And is he... Wagging his rear in lieu of a tail?]

Seventh Howl  
[Well. This is weird. Weird enough for Cambot to sit and record the whole thing.

Anyone looking for food can find Harvey lying on the floor of the kitchen, happily ripping at a large hunk of meat he's dug out of somewhere or other. It appears to be raw, or at least dreadfully undercooked, and he's getting juices all over his nice suit, but he doesn't seem to notice that very much. His hat's missing entirely, probably abandoned somewhere between here and his room.

He twitches and jerks his head up suddenly, and Cambot swings around to note the small black rabbit climbing over the man's legs. Harvey turns and looks at Frank for a few seconds, leaning back to sniff at the smaller creature. After a few seconds, he huffs, gives the rabbit's head a cursory lick, and turns back to his meal. Huh...maybe he's just not in the mood for live prey today?]

[Not much is known about the Lombaxes themselves; even less so in another dimension. But this? This did not look like typical Lombax behaviour.

Catching the eye of Cambot, naturally, Ratchet can be found wandering the decks of the SOL, crawling on all fours and sniffing the ground, supposedly searching for something. Someone? It's difficult to tell when the only noises coming from the Lombax are snorts and whimpers, large ears occasionally perking up and around. He keeps moving on in this manner, heading down the hall--

No, wait. He's got something!

That long tail immediately starts wagging, both ears shooting upright and his eyes widen, beginning to close the gap between himself, and...

One of the rooms? What could be in there he's so interested about?]
28 March 2013 @ 07:19 pm
[90s Kid's just walking around on the bridge, fussing over some string pinned to the side of his jeans. Whatever he's doing he can't seem to get it to work; everything is getting tangled and messy and his hands fumble over the braids he's apparently trying to weave together with all that string. Frustrated, he takes a seat by the Twin-Screw Universal controller, propping a leg up on the table to concentrate on this thing.

Unfortunately he seems to have bumped one of the switches in doing so.]
26 March 2013 @ 05:08 pm
[ There is Cambot, bobbing down the hall, minding its own business. Then, without warning, a blur races past, sending the poor bot whirling as something crashes - loudly - and gives a muffled grunt of pain. Cambot gradually recovers and turns to see what happened, and... wow, who is this guy? He sounded familiar for a second there, but there hasn't been anyone on the Satellite that wears a bright red and yellow suit, right? Uh-oh, he looks angry. ]

Does fighting crime mean nothing to you? You had to take me away from the Light for bad literature? Again?! As if high school wasn't bad enough?!

[ That is not the greeting Cambot was expecting. Again? Has he been here before? Maybe he's a familiar face, after all...? ]

((OOC: I may still be pretty slow in responding due to RL. But he's here for the time being, and I'll try my best.))

Ninth Sunrise  
[Ammy has gotten pretty sick and tired of whatever the switch-thing did a couple of days ago...she's been prowling around the entire ship searching for a spring that connects to steam-powered weaving machines, and not found a one! It's maddening wanting to dump the money that she has somewhere! So, if it's that switch thing that's causing it, maybe moving it again will stop it.]

[She notes the Cambot watching, and leans up towards the Twin-Screw Universal Controller. She considers it for only a moment, but then pushes one of the switches with her nose. Leap before you think, right?]
22 March 2013 @ 01:37 am
[Liz. Cambot. Office chair. She's not even paying attention to Cambot, waving her copy of Warhammer Fantasy around while in an animated argument with someone on the other like of what looks like Linkara's old phone. You know, the one he called the cops with from space long ago.]

What do you mean you can't accept this? Do you know how RARE these are? You could keep your business in the black for a year with the resale of this book! I have the pages scanned and copied twenty times over, it's not like I need it anymore! I'm making you the offer of a lifetime!


[She holds the phone away from her.] He hung up on me. Ungrateful bastard.

[She hangs up, pouts, and looks up at Cambot] Oh! Hi everybody, Iron Liz here. I was just thinking the other day...[Cambot seems to be expecting this part, and cues a sweet little theme to accompany Liz's speech.] We've been through a lot together, the bunch of us. We've been haunted, mind-screwed, fire drilled, ponified, and subjected to some of the worst of the worst books out there. But we've all made it this far because you guys are just awesome. Sure, we don't always get along, hell sometimes it's just hard to look each other in the eye...[There's a knowing look at that; she means last week, of course. But she quickly smiles again] But I've really been so glad to have known you guys, and riff and play games with you. For all its faults, my time on the Satellite of Love has been so much fun, and you guys are like a big family to me, even if a slightly dysfunctional one.

I don't think we're gonna be up here for much longer. Once Joel gets back, he'll have that twin-screw thing fixed, and we'll all be going home. But there's something I think we should all do before that happens, like a last sendoff to the Satellite of Love, only before that idea really gets depressing.

I want us to do one more big experiment.

All of us.

What do you say?

Guys! italicsGuysslashitalics! The switch isn't stuck anymore!

[Guess who's at the bridge, with the Twin-Universal Controller...]

Only one way to figure out what else this baby can do! Maybe if we're lucky it'll send us home! Or at least stop this weird talking thing.

[And this, she pulls both switches...at the same time...]

Here goes nothing...!

Hey guys! Aside from some people, um, italics talking unitalics a little weird now, it still seems like things are mostly normal around here...and I know I promised some of you that I’d teach you how to swim! Namine and Xion, I know you asked about it. If anyone else that doesn’t know wants to learn, meet me down at the recreation deck pool and I’ll try and teach you about swimming!

I think a lot of us wanna take our minds off of things. And swimming is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it.

The source of the craziness!  
[Guess who’s onscreen now! It’s Crow, looking mighty pleased with himself.]

Hey, everybody! Sure is good to be back in our own universe, isn’t it? Gosh, evil me was such a jerk! Not like the real me!

But there was one thing I remembered that evil me did back in the universe of evil...and I went to check it out in this universe, and whaddaya know, it was in the exact same place!

[Crow holds up something...it’s the Twin-Screw Universal Controller!]

Turns out, this thing was in the back of my closet the entire time! Crazy, huh? I bet if we messed with these little switch things, something neat might happen.

--[All of a sudden, the screen goes staticy. After a moment of fuzz and white noise, a new figure appears on the screen...it’s Joel again! He looks like he’s in the cockpit of some very handmade-looking ship.]

Hey everyone, it’s Joel again! Good to see you back and all. After that blast disabled all my systems and you guys vanished, I had to fly back down to Earth and get started on some major repairs. Now I did a little fenangling with Gizmonic while you were gone, so you shouldn’t have an issue with him trying to blow you or me out of orbit anymore. But these repairs took a real long time and I just don’t have the power to get up there that super quicklike.

But I just wanted to let you know: don’t touch that Twin-Screw Universal Controller! The controller’s malfunctioning, and that’s why it’s been bringing all of you people in and causing all that weird stuff to happen in the first place. I’m gonna try my best to get up there and fix it so you can all go on your way. But until then, just hang tight! Or hang loose. Whichever’s easier for you to do.

[The feed cuts out, and static returns to the screen. After another moment of fuzz and noise, Crow comes back on screen.]--

--Oh cool, Joel’s comin’ back! So anyway! You guys think I should pull the right switch first or the left one?

[Well. That just...well. Here's Minako. Its been awhile, right?]

Sorry for the disappearance, guys! Apparently universe-hopping destroyed my room, so I just spent these last few days cleaning it up. But two nights ago, as I was going to bed, it got me to thinking that maybe some people were still bummed out by what happened. I mean...it might sound crazy, but I can understand the whole "turning evil against your will" thing. How that can mess people up. How...how you could wake up with yourself after turning against your friends.

[Is that a hint of sadness? It just might be. Some people might have an idea why.

Aaaand just as soon as its there it's gone again.]

...Which caused me to have this super-weird dream about our adventures with universe-hopping! That and...lack of sleep since I hadn't slept since we ended up in the evil universe. I...won't go into details about the dream, because it was really messed up, but I promise this is going somewhere so don't leave Cambot.

[Aw, man-]

It gave me the perfect idea to help people cheer back up! In fact, maaaaybe you guys should check your rooms to see if someone brought you guys anything while you weren't there~!

[And what an idea it was. People might find a cute plushie one of these in random places in their room. On top of a shelf, under a pillow, hiding behind your door...under your bed...the sky is the limit!]

Mission 25  
[Now that everyone's back to normal, Cambot is so happy! It doesn't seem his person shares this sentiment, though. Xion is currently curled up in her window holding what looks like a note in her hand, looking pretty miserable. When she sees Cambot she sighs.]

Not now, Cambot.

[When it's pretty obvious he's not going away, there's another sigh, and her voice is a little shaky.]

If anyone else was looking for MakubeX...I think he's gone home.

[Behind the kitchen counter, there's a faint groan. Cambot watches as a hand gropes for a hold, and 90s Kid pulls himself up from the floor, looking disheveled and half-dead. Which...he sort of was last week in the mirror universe.]

Uuuuugh, oh my head.

[He stumbles into a nearby chair, rubbing his head like he has a hangover, even pushing his shades up to rub his eyes.]

What happened last night, man?

[More like last week. He blinks disorientedly at Cambot, then regards a bottle of Surge! on the counter dubiously.]

What's in this stuff?

2nd Void  

[Well, the whole mirror universe fiasco is over. Everyone's back to normal... as well as this guy. Vanitas had been laying low the entire time, and is now starting to get bored. And becasue of this bordeom, he decides to adress the audience.]

Well, now that all that mirror universe crap is over, here's two questions for you all. One: Has anyone ever, i dunno, tried getting off this crate, or are you all so content with being lab rats that you're willing to stay here? And question two: Since this place takes away your powers, how do you keep from smashing your head against a wall?

[Sora is back in his own room again. It takes him a little bit to recognize what all of this is, including the pictures he's pinned to the walls and the dirty clothes on the floor. There's another moment of thinking, and then his face instantly falls. He looks completely miserable, as if he's ready to break down any moment.]

That...that was absolutely horrible...

[He squeezes his eyes shut and swallows.] Gypsy...please let's not use the dimension jumping engine again! I don't ever wanna be...wanna do something like that, ever again!

27th Dawn  
[Riku's in the Rec Deck, his hands grasping the still-racked weights as he lays on the bench press. He looks confused. He lets go and slowly sits up, looking around and then giving quizzical look to Cambot. Riku looks away, thinking. His expressions shift, usually only subtly, though at a few points there's a distinct look disgust and at one point, utter revulsion.] ...Uuuugh. [Then, slowly, his eyes widen in a look of horror. His face lowers itself defeatedly to the palm of his hand.]

...Oh no.

[OOC: Riku is about to vanish into his room for a few days, though probably not before grabbing some food from the cafeteria deck and kitchen. Some supplies go missing from the theatrical deck. After which he'll be seen only briefly as he uses the restroom. He'll use the shower in the middle of the night, and a light can be seen under his door at all hours.]

Switch again!  
[The device has, by now, been hooked up into the main power grid! It is beeping, and producing flashing lights. Frank is keeping an eye on it since Pinkie said that he could. Dr. F comes up behind him, looking concerned.]

Dr. F: You shouldn’t go touching that, Frankie! You don’t know where it’s been.

Frank: More like I don’t know where it’s going, am I right?

[Dr. F and Frank laugh together over this...kind of terrible non-joke. Meanwhile, the device beeps faster and faster.]

Frank: Think maybe we should do something about it, Dr. F?

Dr. F: Ohhh Frank, don’t worry, these things tend to just work themselves ou--

[KABOOOOOOOM. The device goes off, setting off a matter transferrence and a storm of ions into the ionosphere! There’s a whole lot of brilliant flashing, a feeling like things are getting flipped upside down, and then--the whole scene changes again!]

[There's something different about the Lombax's posture when he appears onscreen, sitting poised with a makeshift crown over his head. And the smile that spreads across his face isn't the chipper, friendly one residents of the SOL have come to expect.

Whatever was happening now, this new, Mirrored Ratchet was taking full advantage of it.]

Greetings, peons. I trust you've all been enjoying yourselves? That's nice.

This is just your friendly neighbourhood Emperor with a little head's up - this ship, and all of its inhabitants are under my control now. You'll find the technicalities included on your respective doors-- [In the form of a hastily-handwritten letter covered in soda stains.]

--and cupcakes are provided for those who comply. For those who don't, an agonizing, firey death broadcast for the entire multi-verse to see.

Good day.
