This Valentine's Day, the Mall is skipping the chocolate, flowers and other gifts. Instead, it decided to compel people to kiss! You know how this works, use the RNG to pick a number between 1 and 11 and kiss away!
  1. Air kiss: Cheek to cheek, make a kissing noise. Très chic.

  2. Hand kiss: Take their hand and kiss it! For true sophistication, get your lips as close to the back of their hand as possible without actually touching.

  3. Butterfly kiss: Bat your eyelashes against their cheek. Cute and romantic.

  4. Eskimo kiss: Rub your noses back and forth together.

  5. Cheek kiss: A kiss on the cheek.

  6. Forehead kiss: A kiss on the forehead.

  7. Chin kiss: A kiss on the chin or jawline.

  8. Single lip kiss: Take one of your partner's lips between your and gently nibble or suck on it.

  9. Kiss on the lips: As it says, mouth closed.

  10. French kiss: Open-mouthed kiss on the lips, involving tongue and saliva.

  11. Kiss of you choice: Any of the above, or an entirely different kiss!

Have fun and remember the community's rating!

It's Junpei's birthday again! Except the number of his friends still stuck in the Mall has dwindled over the last two years, so much so he suddenly find himself with no one to invite for his birthday. His cake, served in the decorated but empty karaoke reception hall, had a distinct flavour of Forever Alone.

[That's right, Mall. There's a zombie invasion. Not from your friendly janitors, either - they're staying out of the way of their more angry cousins.]

[These ones are tipping over trash cans, smashing windows, and collecting anything of significant power they can get their hands on. Kill one, and four more come stumbling your way.]

[And yes, shotguns have been tried already. There's a Kresnik who's backpedaling the hell out of there, a gun holstered at his side. The zombie in question is just shambling along, the top of his head blown up.]

[As for the source of them? If you look, there's a figure in the rafters, cackling to himself.]

[It's been awhile, hasn't it, Velvet Mall? Since you've last seen this wonderful goddess floating around the mall?

Well. There are some changes in her appearance. A very visible change --

She resembles Ryoji. Actually, her appearance is on par to that of Ryoji's, paired with two familiar black wings etched out from her back. Pretty similar to the one's you've seen Miwako with. Actually, they may be the exact pair of wings that Miwako has, seeing that there is dye from previous... mischief many years ago.

It's been awhile, hasn't it? Good to see you all again. [Nyx's voice booms throughout the mall.

She doesn't seem to want to cause anyone harm. However, those who hold the wild card, or well. Are Death, then. You know.
[Some time after a certain fight gone horribly awry, someone starts chattering excitedly over the PA system.


Is that Bugaboo?

It sounds like he's speaking more coherently, to boot.]

Bug! Everyone, zombies! Bug, aaa...Really, really strong demon at the front, too! They all mean bad! Everyone, careful! Bugaboo!

[Bugaboo knows when to fold 'em, and right now he is folding 'em by hiding in the tech room.

In the meantime, it turns out Bugaboo was indeed correct with his warning: there is a horde of zombies that DO mean harm, and their leader is a certain catphones who is not quite himself at the moment, as if the red eyes and evil smirk weren't enough of a tip-off. He also means harm.

What do, Mall?]
02 January 2012 @ 08:10 pm
[The doors have worked their magic once again. A certain small female catphones was dragged in and then spat back out - with a difference: she is now considerably more powerful and has blood everywhere. Angel blood, no less.

Curiously, the door behind her remains open, showing an otherwise beautiful landscape littered with angelic corpses.

She looks down at the ground for a moment, regret in her eyes, before looking back up again and walking forward, out of the door.]

It's New Year's Eve! As usual, it's time to get your kimonos out, eat festive hot meals, visit the temple for the bell ringing, to meet others, to get mochi from the Hares of Inaba pounding it and try to avoid the flying bits of mistletoe going around and making people kiss.

And if you meet Lucifer, he's decided to distribute otoshidama envelopes this year. As you're all children in his eyes, don't be surprised to get money from the King of Hell, even as he looks like an old man in a wheelchair.

Hi Mall! It's almost December! You know, the time of year when a snow day marks the beginning of the holiday season and you all suddenly have to wade through several feet of slush to get to the dorms. This year, there's an... interesting variation of that come early, thanks to a Door that just opened above the fountain. Out falls a round, black demon, unaware of the change of location since he's concentrating on...

"NIFLHEIM-HO~! ...Hee?"

...oh, dear.

Fortunately, no one in the vicinity is horrible mauled by that high-level spell, which goes off in the air as its caster lands on the tip of the now frozen fountain with a squeak. Unfortunately, the Mall can't possibly pass up a perfectly good excuse to make you all suffer.

Every surface in the Mall outside of shops is now covered in a thick, slippery layer of ice. Hope you can fly... or happen to own a pair of skates. Happy mingling!
26 November 2011 @ 02:41 pm
Sometimes the Mall could resort to simple but very efficient methods for driving its inhabitants nuts. For example, having the PA system play "Happy Birthday" on repeat since 7 in the morning without pause.

Perhaps not unrelated, there is a banquet fit for a royal court in place of the Mall's fountain today, with Shura and Kaeded Nakamura at the honoured guests' seats.

Shura, sitting with a gold paper crown on her head, has decided to just go with the flow and has begun eating. All this food wont eat itself, right?

Kaede, with a red crown on her head, hasn't begun eating yet. Beside her are small piles of photos of herself in her role as Akihiko Sanada, in his boxing outfit or in his school outfit, reading to be autographed by the JDrama actress. Wait... does it mean it's her birthday too?

[ooc: It's demifemme and boyactress's birthdays by luck of the randomizer! You can wish a happy birthday to either, or both, sit to eat, get an autograph from Kaede, complain about the music, etc. Basically, mingle! It's a birthday!]

[Naoto climbs out of the fountain, less gracefully than he would have preferred, and stands dripping wet as he takes in his surroundings. Senpai is nowhere to be seen, nor is anyone else, for that matter.]

The name would not read as Lucifer, but Helel.

And the clan is...Seraph? Not Tyrant?

...well this is awkward.

Anyone want to fill the not!Fallen angel in on what's going on?

And what is with these lights seriously.
29 October 2011 @ 03:15 pm
What a terrible time to show up while the Mall's facilities are on the blitz. At least, the electricity is. The lights that are still flaring on and off can't be a good sign.

So of course Sandalphon shows up at the Mall now. Yes.

There is no way that this will go smooth for any parties involved.

The angel floats there an inch off the ground, shielding his eyes and already getting annoyed by the wavering lights. Who is even running this place?

Either way, someone should probably tell them that their building's electricity is malfunctioning.

Going through the Mall today, you might notice something unusual - there's a lingering smell of smoke in the air, for one.

However, he doesn't know how to brake or slow down and is now zooming through the Mall at top speed, scared out of his wits, babbling incoherently. Well. More incoherently than usual, anyway.

[Naoya had decided to go shopping for a few new shirt or two to replace the badly beaten one he had been transported here in. However, upon trying on a few of his new acquisitions the boy formally known as Cain comes out of the changing room in a "different" state of being then which he entered. Now decidedly female in appearance, Naoya can currently be found trying his best to avoid detection as he pays for the clothing that didn't change his gender for no real reason.]
[His cautious footsteps make little noise against the tiled floors of the Mall, save for the tiny click of his shoes.

Ah. Well. Some time has passed since then. In yet, she doesn't seem to look a day older. Actually, she looks as if she first arrived at The Velvet Mall all those years ago. Same smile. Same expression. Different outfit, of course. Yet, still the same Miwako.

She's sitting here in silence. Coffee in her hand, while she reads, but also listening to the citizens of the mall with a familiar feeling of being... home.]

Familiar, isn't it? [You may hear her say.

However. Upon further inspection (if one looks, they may see a pair of black wings) the aura of a primordial goddess may set many triggers off as soon as you get within a 5 feet radius of Miwako.

In yet.

She doesn't seem fazed that Nyx is sitting right beside her.

Come bother?]

*There are several strange terminals scattered about the Mall today. When accessed, they cheerfully announce that they are "Training Terminals, for Fun and Profit".

Further inspection reveals that these terminals will simulate several "floors" of battle, with a group of hostile demons, or a single powerful demon, on each floor. Clearing the floor will reward all party members with macca and provide the option to move on. Participants can either join a party in progress or start their own simulation.

Though the danger of death is real, anyone who dies in the simulation will be resurrected outside of it with a 20-hour restriction on reentry.

The farther you go, the richer your party will become. Unfortunately, the machine can't tell you who, exactly, is participating already, so if you join a party in progress, you're joining blind.

Also, it seems as if there is a single participant active right now. Joining that party will land you with a very ordinary Principality in somewhat tattered robes casting Mabufu on some Preta.

Anyone up for some bonding through battle?*

Prologue in his journal!
Nights are rarely a tranquil affair in the Mall. After all, it has a range of things to choose from: Solar Noise (even at night!), Full Moon, Dark Hour, Midnight Channel... even on quiet night, Crawler Shadows roam the fog, looking almost domesticated. Almost.

Tonight, as the clock strikes midnight, time stands still and a sickly green tinge washes over everything. The very few powerless beings safely transmogrified into bleeding onyx coffin, only those with powers remain to either patrol or sleep quietly.

Tonight, there is one very alarming exception.

A Dojima in a hospital gown and slippers is trying to make his way through the fog despite all the Shadows chasing him. One of them manages to land a blow in his ribs. Dojima falls with a howl of pain, coughing for breath afterward as he is surrounded.

To think he couldn't even escape these things... he truly is useless. Nanako doesn't stand a chance.

The Love Hotel was pretty different today when Muki woke up. All of the gaudy red deorations were gone, replaced by gaudy blue decorations instead. Instead of aphrodisiac, the air was filled with oxygen.

It took Muki a bit to realize that he probably wasn't where he thought he was anymore.

"...The Velvet Mall? Wow, I haven't seen this place in ages!" He exclaimed, a bit too loudly, possibly attracting some confused glares. But he ignored any awkward stares, for he was too excited and went off to run around and find any familiar places he could have remembered. He saw the fountain, the familiar stores....everything was causing him nostalgia. He began to remember the people he had met, the demons he had helped, the places he had visited.

After a while of doing so, he had to sit down next to a bench to rest a little. Even he had a limit to how much he could run. As he sits down, he gives a little friendly smile to the person sitting on the same bench.

[ooc: new guys and previous CR all welcome. :) small note for reference, Muki is an incubus disguised as a human. Some people can sense it, some people can't.

At first silent to his plight, he eventually turns to playing with his ever present COMP and muttering to no one in particular as ways to cope with the oddness of the world around him. In fact, it seems as if his mind is elsewhere at the moment. Focused on some lofty goal long lost to time and history.]

In general, of course. Whatever exists seems to be anything and everything. Some of it is plastered with the likeness of popular demons and influential figures to that particular alignment.

But that's not all. There is a set of "Let's Survive!" merchandise, and kiosks for Reasons (or lack thereof), and "last days" and some odd references to the sun, the moon, fog, rumors, dual worlds, true selves...

'Sup, Mall, it's time for another random effects day! This one is a little different from usual, though.... Throughout the building, there's a scattering of broken glass shards. Nothing big, not really a threat if you watch your step. Just a minor (though potentially painful) nuisance. But looking into any reflective surface today will give you a big surprise- you'll suddenly be someone you weren't just before. Or maybe it won't be a surprise, because as far as you know, you've always been that way! In addition, friends have become enemies, enemies have become lovers, lovers have become strangers, and strangers have become family. So, what happens when you run into each other?

Any character affected by this event will now be from a different SMT 'verse (AU or OU) entirely, and their CR might get scrambled up, too. They may or may not be aware of the change. It can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few days! Feel free to roll with random.org, pick another specific canon, or switch up the CR differences!

(1) Personal mirrors: You are now a teenager with a fake gun or a pair of "stylish" glasses. Midnight holds special meaning. Alternatively, you collect weird playing cards.
(2) Liquid surface: You're more used to kimono and hakama than shirts and jeans. How are you enjoying "modern" life in the Mall?
(3) Electronics monitor: You are now a human (appearance-wise, at least) with a computer on your arm or a special gadget in hand. Either you're from a distant future, or you've been caught up in the longest week of your life. Regardless, you've got your own little team of cute, cuddly, bloodthirsty bodyguards!
(4) Windows: The world ended ages ago. In a way. You're one of the survivors, though it's unlikely you made it through unchanged... or maybe this is just everyday life for you, since it's technically your parents who survived and learned to cope.
(5) Broken glass: You are now a Shadow, or some kind of monster or deity with a legend behind it. Maybe you're Zeus, Titania, a generic angel, or a new demon with your own story.

 [Few ways of entering the Mall are more unpleasant than getting unceremoniously dumped into the fountain. Hopefully you weren't sitting anywhere near it, because an unfortunate newbie is, well, going to be making a splash and getting you wet if you are.

Actually, it's technically two newbies. First is a young man with black hair, next is a marmalade cat who yowls the whole way down. The kitty hurriedly scrambles out to sit on the edge, complaining. Its companion takes a little longer to straighten up, since he has to fish around for his now water-logged hat first. But he does follow eventually, looking up and around with an expression on his face that's difficult to read.

This is a generic intro, in other words. Get splashed? Greet them? Stare at the obviously normal and non-demonic feline?]

[The Tsukasa who has stumbled into the mall today is a far cry from the frantic young girl of some months ago. Clad from head to toe in black and her eyes aglow with a crimson glare that seems to penetrate one's very soul, her presence borders on demonic. She seem neither confused or angry to be here; but rather annoyed in a manner similar to being unable to find one's car keys. After a moment's looking around to gain a sense of where she is, Tsukasa turns her attention to anyone who looks like they could be of use at the moment.]

Ahem, yes, could you please direct me to the exit of this terrible place?  I'm afraid I have quite a few things to attend to back home that simply cannot wait for their queen to be trapped in an interdimesional hell by heaven knows who.
*Mastema can be seen in one of the Mall's jewelry shops, speaking with the Kin-Ki behind the counter.

He points out a white chrysanthemum ring.* Would you happen to have something similar with a smaller flower?

*When the Kin-Ki nods, Mastema produces a piece of paper with something written in Cyrillic script.* And, if you could engrave something into the band for me-

*At that point, a Pixie darts out from behind a display and snatches the paper out of Mastema's hand.* Oooh, what could this say? I thought you weren't supposed to get married! I'm gonna go tell your boss~!

Wh-... you... *Mastema flies after the Pixie, who by now has darted out of the shop.

She taunts him as he chases her through the Mall.* I'm gonna tell your boss you were trying to get engaged~. Won't he be sooo~ mad?

A promise ring is not an engagement ring! Return that paper to me at once! *....wow, someone's pissed. Anyone want to step in?*

[Well, would you look at the time? It's midnight. If you look at the nearest tv...

...this is so predictable by now.]

What is civilization without order? Look around!

[A ruined Tokyo dominates the landscape.]

Tonight, I will create law out of this chaos, and from there...

Oh, one little thing. There may be human joining the ranks of the cleansed! Isn't that great!?

[The Shadow pauses, mocking smile spread across its face.]

Oh... but I'm SURE you want to stop me, right? Come and find me, or else....  Well, I'm sure you wouldn't really care.

[Shadow Keisuke retreats into an underground rail station...]

It's hard to be upset over your friends missing your birthday, when you end up missing it yourself. Those were Chie's thoughts as she stood in front of the calendar in her room, staring at the date. July 31st. Yesterday she'd turned seventeen. She didn't feel one bit different, but then again, wasn't that usually the case?

Oh well. There was no sense proclaiming it to the streets now, and she wasn't typically bothered by such things in the first place. Besides, with the kidnappings and the murders and the beating up shadows, who had time for cake?

Still, seemed a shame to just let it slide like that. Especially since there was no school on Sunday! So she decided to celebrate it on her own and enjoy the hell out of it, never mind the lateness of it all. After she showered and dressed and wolfed down a breakfast of toast and eggs, she sketched out a plan. First, head to Junes and pick up a copy of the new Jet Li movie she'd been dying to see. After that she'd hit up the food court and order a grilled steak. Heh heh, maybe she'd even persuade Yosuke into treating her, if he was working today. That'd be a bonus! Then a few hours of training down on the floodplain until she was exhausted, refresh herself with a soda, and head home to stare at her homework and put it off until she was too tired to make any sense of it.

It would be the perfect day.

(OOC: So mostly canon'ish, in that she's hanging around Inaba instead of the mall. Feel free to run into her at any point in the day for hijinks and adventures!)

*There is a bar open. Hard as it is to open establishments in this mall, given its tendency to bestow effects on new places, a group of Moirae Sisters and a Dionysus have braved the stigma.

It's an ambitious enterprise, trying to set itself apart with variety. They have almost every sort of drink imaginable, from very nearly every country and time, along with some non-alcoholic drinks for the teetotalers and very young of the Mall.

And, for opening day, everything is half price. As if simply being new wasn't stigmatized enough.

Surprisingly, there are no effects attached to the alcohol! There is only a single problem: This is alcohol brewed for demons and their constitutions. It will be stronger than anything humans are accustomed to. So you may find yourself a sudden lightweight...assuming you weren't one already, of course.

Have fun, everyone, and mingle!

Oh yeah, and the bar staff can be NPCed by anyone, of course. Feel free to make up your own hired help aside from the four listed above, too.*
