[Assume this was written after the snow thread, please. I can happily edit this if anyone else would like to participate.]

Ah... Before I forget: Nall, X. Thank you. I had a good time. Perhaps we can enjoy the weather again sometime.

Well then. Another one of those Earth holidays appears to be coming up soon. Nothing incredibly strange has happened for some time, which leads me to believe that it just might. I could be wrong, however. I hope I am wrong...

At first everything seemed to roughly follow a pattern in regards to "events" and regaining memories, but recently this hasn't been the case. I've also noticed that I've been remembering things at a considerably faster rate than I was months ago. I wonder how much longer...

Regardless, I still have far more questions than I do answers, so I would assume that I haven't made as much progress as I would like to think. Though, I suppose, one can hardly call it "progress" when it requires no effort on our part.

[Filtered from Ari.]

The more I think about it, the less sense any of this makes. What could anyone be gaining by taking memories away from other individuals? Whatever the reason, I can't imagine that the results are turning out to be particularly favorable.

I also have to wonder if the shopkeepers might provide some sort of clue. Getting them to speak, however, might prove easier said than done. They are cats after all.

Instructor Cantabile...

I doubt that I would have made it this far without her recommendation. To be honest, I wouldn't have granted the request if I had been in her position. I was headstrong at 14 and only had one person on my mind, even after learning the truth. Everything always fell back on Van, and deep down, despite what I said, maybe I was hoping all along that I could convince him to stop.

It seems impossible, but I still loved him, even knowing he was doing something horrible. Maybe that's why I was so determined, and why I grew reckless whenever he was involved. As a result of my carelessness, I put a number of civilians - members of the Kimlascan nobility to be precise - in harm's way. That was incredibly foolish of me. Perhaps I should be grateful the hyperresonance occurred, otherwise I hate to think of how things might have ended. Sheena may have had a point, but I can't bring myself to agree. Though some good did come from it, I've also done him a considerable disservice. There has to be some other way to get home.

[OOC: Let's get this chick caught up with remembering stuff that actually happened DURING the game. 2% on all remaining backstory (Major Cantabile, more of Van and his crazy visions of grandeur). 1% on actually breaking into the Fabre mansion. 3% remaining. 27% total.]

Oh, believe me, they'll do something for this holiday.

...why do you think that? Did something happen last year?

Date: 2010-01-31 01:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Not just "something." People got stuck to the first person they touched.

Date: 2010-01-31 01:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
So you were physically stuck to someone else for a week?

Date: 2010-01-31 01:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Not me. I got away with not getting touched. But when it was done I was ready to collapse for a week out of exhaustion.

And it wasn't a week. It was ten days.

Date: 2010-01-31 01:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
You may have been exhausted, but I imagine it was even more tiring for the people who weren't so lucky.

Ten days. So the duration of events doesn't stay consistent either. I suppose the island prefers unpredictability, and as a result I still know little more about it than I did when I arrived.

So... How have you been?

Date: 2010-01-31 02:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Huh? Oh. I'm...getting by.

Date: 2010-01-31 05:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

Well then. Did you at least find out the information you needed for taking care of Lori?

Date: 2010-01-31 05:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah. She's been doing okay.

Date: 2010-01-31 07:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That's good at least.
Although, it's still a bit difficult to imagine you keeping a pet.

Date: 2010-02-01 01:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I've been getting that a lot.

Date: 2010-02-01 02:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
To be honest, I'm not at all surprised.

But you know, it's a good thing that you're learning to take care of someone else.

Date: 2010-02-01 05:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah. I figure after what I did to Akzeriuth, it's the least I can do.

I kinda just want to see what it's like to be responsible for another life. Even if it's not human.

Date: 2010-02-03 04:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

I see.

Do... you mind if I stop by and see her sometime?

Date: 2010-02-03 07:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Eh? No, not at all. Go right ahead.

Date: 2010-02-05 03:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
All right.

I suppose I should be thanking you for the information as well. We'll have to be careful.

[Not that it will help at all.]

Date: 2010-01-30 11:45 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Hm? What holiday's coming up this time?

Date: 2010-01-31 12:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...something called "Valentine's Day".

Date: 2010-01-31 12:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Valentine's Day, huh...?

[Tsubasa gives an involuntary shudder. What.]

I'm not sure why, but all of the sudden I've got this really bad feeling. Wonder why...?

Date: 2010-01-31 12:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
It's supposed to be a day to celebrate "love and friendship". Something like that, anyway. As is the case with most holidays, different civilizations follow different customs in regards to it. I've personally never heard of it before.

Date: 2010-01-31 12:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That doesn't sound so bad. I wonder what the island's gonna do for it?

Date: 2010-01-31 01:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Probably something we'd never come up with on our own. In any case, I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

From: [identity profile]
I had fun! Let's do it again sometime!

...What's this holiday that's coming up? Anything like that Christmas thing? That was fun!

Date: 2010-01-31 04:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Of course.

...It's called "Valentine's Day". It's a day celebrating love and friendship, although it seems to place particular emphasis on romantic feelings between couples.

Date: 2010-01-31 10:44 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

...why do I feel uneasy now?

Date: 2010-02-01 12:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Likely for the same reasons I do.

Date: 2010-01-31 03:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

Maybe we can. I was glad to have fun with you guys too.

I know. Valentine's Day, right? I wonder what they'll do for this event. It sounds like it has the potential to be more awkward than the last few holidays. Events seem to follow the holiday's main theme, and...well, when Oktoberfest happened, for example, we saw what that caused. Nobody was strictly hurt, but we still had some unpleasant experiences.

Date: 2010-01-31 07:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That's good to hear.

Yes, I agree... Considering what's happened in the past, just about anything might be possible. And you're right of course. It concerns me that this event could become very... uncomfortable incredibly fast, although the island hasn't precisely done us any harm yet.

[Tear doesn't like the prospect of being made to do something against her will on such a lovey-dovey holiday and expects the worst.]

Date: 2010-02-01 05:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

I know. We might be in for a rough ride. On the bright side, though, we should all get some memories at the end, and the events only last around a week's time, give or take a few days. We'll get something for the experience, even if we have to endure some hardship first.

Just gotta look at the positive, right?

Date: 2010-02-01 06:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
This is true, although there have also been cases where no one has remembered anything, but there's usually at least some lasting effect at the end of an event's duration. I suppose we'll see.

And yes. It could always be worse. Sometimes, however, it's difficult to find a possitive side because the events themselves are so ridiculous.

[She just doesn't want to be embarrassed. Her mun's going to make sure that she is, though. She'll be grateful for this one day.]
