♪ Our house ♪ in middle of this tree ♪ our house

Who: Everyone
What: The first morning of an adventure begins.
Where: Home
When: Day 1
Other: Be courteous and warn for any of the usuals in your thread subject title if it gets to that point.




You wake up to a serene and idyllic morning.

Outside, a pleasant glow from the sun fills the room including the small crannies in which the beds are tucked. All windows have been latched close, but it's easy to see a gentle breeze ruffling the leaves of branches which loom overhead. Faintly, bird song can be heard from outside. In this place, it'd be a simple matter to close your eyes again and drift back to sleep.

There's simply one problem: this is not where you last went to sleep.

Waking up properly will display not only how the picturesque and cozy little room stands out in stark contrast to where you should be, but that you are sharing this space with someone else. Depending on things, they might be very mundane or very... unusual. Either way, they seem just as bewildered as you are. The good news is that at least all the things you immediately had on you at the time are right nearby the foot of your bed along with what seems like a small gift- a small pouch of some sort of coin. (500 Lucre, although that might not be immediately realized anytime soon.)

Exploring the rest of the house shows it to be otherwise quite empty, except for some writing utensils and paper in what appears to be the study along with basic kitchen tools in, well, the kitchen. There's no food, however, and no decoration. Venturing outside onto the grounds reveals an expansive but not particularly well tended estate including another building that is fairly run down. Attempting to venture down the path from the front door out into the world reveals... well. Nothing. It's a fruitless endeavor.

However, not for long.

Hajime Iwaizumi will be the one to find what appear to be a few discarded children's toy blocks. The Colorblocks immediately seem off in some way, strange even as they should seem inconspicuous. Something about them will compel him to pick them up. The nature of this apparent toy will not be obvious until he ventures near the edge of Home himself. A sound, almost like distant bellchimes, will start to emit from the Colorblocks.

When exposed to the air, suddenly they emit a glow and shoot off into the sky with all the brilliance of a falling star. Its trail is both noticeable and easy to follow, curving an arc through the sky until it falls some distance away... and its impact bursts an aurora of colors through the distant and dimmer sky, encircling the site. As the whirlwind of color fades, what appears to be a town can be just made out...

That is the town of Domina.


Some OOC notes:
➸ Prior to the activation of the Colorblocks, the only books which will be filled out in the Study will be "Artifacts" and "Visitors".
➸ After Domina has been unlocked and some characters have explored the town, "People" and "Locations" will be filled out in the Study as well.
➸ To see who your character is initially rooming with, check the Home page. These rooming assignments are not permanent or mandatory by any means, and characters can change them whenever. Officially letting me know will be present and explained in the next mod post coming in a week's time, but for now we can play it relaxed and loose. Just don't burn down the tree in the meantime.

Zenyatta, the friendly Omnic (robot) monk

[personal profile] orbislife 2016-07-31 05:18 am (UTC)(link)
3rd Floor and Stairs

[ After meeting his roommate in Room 4, Zenyatta exits to the 3rd Floor with one careful step after the other. He is remembering how to walk, and his coordination (and confidence in the action) has yet to return. Normally, he hovers, and it has been years since he had the ability to actually walk. The basic commands and processes had been tucked away and nearly forgotten. Now, he walks like an old fashioned robot, jerky, unnatural movements with too much thought behind each one. His systems need to recalibrate. But he walks. Somehow he had been repaired!

Zenyatta will not hesitate to greet anyone he comes across. (Though he is also looking to see if anyone he knows is around.) The idea of tackling the issue of stairs so soon worries him, however. He tumbled to the floor in his room once already. He does not want to do the same down a flight of stairs. Zenyatta eventually makes his way to the edge and looks down, a firm grip on the handrail. Worried or not, he also knows he cannot stay on this floor alone.
]

1st Floor and the Study

[ Zenyatta eventually makes it downstairs, and his movements begin to smooth out. He sighs in relief and goes to explore each of the areas. The kitchen, while important for the humans he has come across, is not so necessary for him. Nor is the communal wash area. The study is far more interesting. He looks at the spines of the books, looking for titles, and finding none, he opens a few to find them blank. Zenyatta returns the books to their rightful spots and tries another shelf. The same result. ]

How mysterious... Are all these books empty?

Outside not far from the door

[ After exploring the study, Zenyatta decides it is time to reflect on what he has discovered so far. He chooses a sun warmed spot in sight of the cottage's door and sits with his legs folded beneath him. He goes still and quiet. Anyone who comes by is welcome to join him in meditation or to ask what he is doing and why. ]

Study!

[personal profile] deadlycynical 2016-07-31 01:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Frustratingly so.

[ And that voice may come from a tiny thing sitting on top of a small pile of books, leafing through one. ]

I'd come in here hoping to find something on our current whereabouts but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything of note to indicate our geographic location, much less our temporal or spacial--

[ Then he finally looks up. ]

... You did speak, didn't you?

[personal profile] orbislife 2016-07-31 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Zenyatta's mouth does not move as he speaks, but he turns to face the tiny one. It still feels strange for him to do so without floating. The blank book was still in his hands. ]

I did. I apologize. Did I disturb you?
deadlycynical: (gw062)

[personal profile] deadlycynical 2016-08-02 02:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Head tilting slightly, one ear up as he hops off the small pile he was sitting on. ]

Not at the least.

[ Don't mind him coming over, head resting on one hand as he starts to look you over. ]

Fascinating... an automaton capable of independent thought.
orbislife: screenshot of Zenyatta's harmony victory pose (A chance to focus)

[personal profile] orbislife 2016-08-03 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
Excuse me, but I am not an automaton. I believe an automaton could be considered an ancestor of mine.

[ There is no insult or negativity in his voice. He is merely trying to help the other understand the difference. Automatons worked with mostly mechanical energy and gears to his understanding. He has more electronics, is more advanced, has a soul. ]

I am an Omnic. My name is Tekhartha Zenyatta.
deadlycynical: (gw074)

[personal profile] deadlycynical 2016-08-09 02:54 pm (UTC)(link)
An Omnic... I can't say I'm familiar with your model line. However you look nothing like a golem...

[ There's an earflick there, just a curious notion as he tilts his head this way and that. Technology more advanced than asuran technology?! Preposterous. ]

Tekharta... but what should I call you?

Oh my gosh.

[Rainbow Dash, with no respect for personal space, zooms straight up to Zenyatta to stare into -- are those eyes? What are his eyes even? Then she rears back to take in the whole picture once more, a look of absolute delight on her face.]

You're a robot!

Okay, with a name like that, you were definitely not made by ponies. Where did you come from? Are you, like, from an awesome comic book or something?

[She's just bubbling with questions, and he's very lucky she managed to keep herself to two. She's downright vibrating with eager energy, making small adjustment in the air to keep herself from racing all around him to check out how he works.]

[Well.... Depending on your definition of "meditation", Zenyatta is absolutely getting a meditation buddy. The Judge observes his position for a moment, taking it all in, before delicately starting to climb his way across crossed legs and...]

Oh ho, that is soothing for my conscience, I must admit. Still, while I have wandered into the labyrinths of thought, I must admit the true act of meditation is somewhat foreign to me, and I would be unsure of where to begin.

So it appears.

[A teenaged girl sits nearby, flipping through a book. Although Zenyatta, should he have the capacity to do so, might be able to pick up on her artificiality a little quicker than others.]

Although there is a rather curious exception.

[To demonstrate, she holds up the book she has currently. A picture of her is inside, along with a simple description and her name: Accord.]

Seems we are worthy of documentation as well. Interesting, isn't it?

[personal profile] orbislife 2016-08-01 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
[ If Zenyatta had access to channeling Omnic energy, he might have been able to sense something. However, he does not. So, the truth that the teenager shares more with him than humans eludes him without more telling clues. ]

Ah, so there are words written. May I take a look at that when you are done?

[ While he wants to see if he has something written about himself and if anyone he knows is present, Zenyatta is patient. ]

[personal profile] of_her_own_accord 2016-08-02 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
Feel free.

[She flips through it a bit, then passes the book over to him. She's found his entry, it seems.]

A pleasure to meet you, Mr. Zenyatta.

[ He pauses to find her excerpt in the book she has passed to him. What charming drawings of everyone. ]

... Miss Accord. If this is to be believed, you have seen much. Have you ever encountered a situation like this?
of_her_own_accord: (Hmm what else was there)

[personal profile] of_her_own_accord 2016-08-03 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
Not personally. But there have been multiple recorded incidents across different timelines of similar situations, some larger than others. In some cases, the removed individuals are replaced at their original points in time, but not before causing a divergent timeline as a result of their absence. They are... interesting to observe at times.

Ah... I should explain myself. I am a member of the Recorders. Our duty is to monitor timelines.

[Patchouli has taken to examining the books too, of course. She also has to get used to walking everywhere again, so maybe they have something to bond over in a way. It's just that she's done it recently anyway. In short bursts, at least. For her, it's more a matter of adjusting to the long term again.

But that's not important. She has definitely scoured the contents of the study in the brief period since her arrival.]


So far as I have noticed, but I haven't searched the entire contents of each book yet.

Strange, though -- who arranges so many blank books so?

[ It seems a number of people are used to hovering instead of walking. Maybe not as many as there are teenagers here, but it is still big enough number to start a club. ]

Perhaps the owner of this study writes in invisible ink or they are in the process of filling out the books with whatever they like.

I agree. These books are another puzzle to this place.
