Week 5

Week 5


[It's been five weeks (since you looked at me) and with the deaths of Shadow and Rukia, the group that was initially 20 strong has dwindled down to ten. Ten people in the span of a month and, even with the Overseers seeming increase in empathy for the remaining Champions, there is no end in sight for the Champion Excellence Program.

And again at 7 am on Sunday the mechanical woman's voice chimes to awaken the remaining champions on Sunday morning. After the initial wake-up call there is no new floor announcement this week.

And again the Champions are awakened they have regained one new memory from the ones they've lost. Starting again on Sunday, as well, Jamie and Bolton will be back to their usual office hours in their usual locations.]


Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday



[ooc: welcome to week 5, everyone! Check-in has begun and don't forget to submit your memory regains!]

Ricky's room

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 07:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Ricky-chan? [knock knock] Are you okay?

[please don't let her be dead in there, Yurika thinks, they JUST had a trial]
voltrounds: (B24F. Road of inner sorrow)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[After a moment, Ricky's door opens. She is... not okay, exactly, but she's alive and doesn't look injured.]

Morning.

[She's not sure whether it's morning, actually.]
ratherdoweddings: (i know this can't continue)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 08:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[You're getting gathered up in a hug with Yurika's friend here.]

I was so worried! You hadn't shown for breakfast and I thought...
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 08:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[She just kind of lets herself be hugged, not questioning any of this.]

...sorry.
ratherdoweddings: (and tentacles)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yurika pulls back and tentatively hugs the plush to herself.]

Is it a memory?
voltrounds: (B23F. Ghost town of granted dreams)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)
No. Yeah.

[...sigh.]

It's a lot of things.
ratherdoweddings: (the nerve to leave)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 08:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm sorry. I think it's that way for a lot of us.
voltrounds: (B19F. An excursion into despair)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 10:21 pm (UTC)(link)
...yeah.

[She steps back, letting Yurika come in if she wants.]
ratherdoweddings: (and if you're chasing a dream)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 10:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yurika nods and goes in, setting the plushie on the bed.]

Did something happen? You can tell me.
voltrounds: (B23F. Ghost town of granted dreams)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 10:55 pm (UTC)(link)
[Watch your step. There are little Physical Affections wrappers all over the floor, and while it's hard to imagine slipping on one, you can never be too careful. Apparently just because Ricky wasn't at breakfast doesn't mean she wasn't hungry.

She makes sure the door is closed before she speaks. Even then, she has to take a few deep breaths first.]


Do you remember me telling you about the project to restore the environment, and how I had a part to play at the end?
ratherdoweddings: (if you're kind)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Uh-huh. [She looks at the crinkled wrappers.] Was there more to it than you thought?
voltrounds: (B09F. A labyrinth for monsters)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-12 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
...no. I knew about this all along.

[Well, except for the time when she had amnesia, but she's known about it the whole time she's been here at least.]
ratherdoweddings: (don't ever think you're alone)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-12 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
...If it's something bad, you can tell me.
voltrounds: (B23F. Ghost town of granted dreams)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Another deep breath.]

As a side effect, the project was going to produce the Yggdrasil Core, which after a thousand years would go out of control and cause massive destruction. My job was to destroy it before that could happen, by activating a superweapon called Gungnir.
ratherdoweddings: (instead of saying "good enough")

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
So you had to leave everything behind and wake up in the future, just to try and destroy the thing that was made to save the world. I'm sorry, Ricky-chan. It has to be hard.
voltrounds: (B17F. Doorway into the unknown)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 12:22 am (UTC)(link)
[She shakes her head.]

It wasn't going to be a problem for long. Gungnir's area of effect is comparable to a nuclear warhead. Gladsheim is well within its range.
ratherdoweddings: (you have the loudest scream)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
You mean -- and it's inhabited?
voltrounds: (B23F. Ghost town of granted dreams)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
Gladsheim isn't, except for M.I.K.E. and me.

But... Etria is. And we found out recently Yggdrasil itself is, too.
ratherdoweddings: (play at being gods)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
People living inside a world-destroying core?
voltrounds: (B07F. Trail of enduring pain)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Not the core. There was a giant tree around it.

[And inside the tree there's a forest which naturally consists of many smaller trees and--okay no let's head this one off at the pass.]

It's complicated, but... you see what the situation is.
ratherdoweddings: (it teaches us that all things)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
...I'm so sorry, Ricky-chan. I know.
voltrounds: (B19F. An excursion into despair)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 12:59 am (UTC)(link)
The forest folk were standing in our way, and... I think we must have set out to destroy them. In the memory I just got back, we'd just defeated their leader of the forest folk. She was still alive, but...
ratherdoweddings: (i feel i need)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
You were trying to save the world, but... I'm so sorry. Toby-san, McBurn-san and Margulis-san, Shadow-kun. All for the sake of so many people. Us, to keep ourselves alive here. The colonists back on Mars. And your world, too. We're all trying to help the most people we can. Why does it always have to be at the cost of others' lives?
voltrounds: (B10F. The forest's silent king)

[personal profile] voltrounds 2017-03-13 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
I keep telling myself it's to help more people. If we'd all voted for someone else, everyone would have died.
ratherdoweddings: (anything)

[personal profile] ratherdoweddings 2017-03-13 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
I know. Me too. We all have people waiting for us.

[A pause, and then:]

The Jovians are human.
