*Tsuruya's taking a bit of a break from working on the plans for the video. And why shouldn't she? It's Christmas! She loves Christmas. Holiday lights, and cake, and presents, and everything! What's not to love?

Look, she's even spreading the cheer a bit! She's going up to everybody's door, presenting people with small wrapped gifts. They're full of little ornaments she's made from bits and pieces she's gotten while checking out thrift stores on her days off. And they're actually pretty creative and festive! Seems like she's got a real knack for this sort of thing.*


Hiyas! Merry Christmas! I know we're still working on a lotta heavy stuff, but let's have a good couple of days, huh?

[VIDEO; EVERYBODY]

Yo peeps! So Ruby and I, we were thinkings maybe we could do that film that the teacher wanted for her kids! But we're gonna need more actors, so if anybody wants to help inspire some youth, come and join us! It'll be fun, I promise!

[TO KYON ONLY]

Yo ho, Kyon! I gots some tickets to a megas awesome sounding comedy flick, wanna join me? We can get something to eat afterwards! I kinda wanted to talk to you about something I remembered anyway; I think it'd have more meaning for you than anybody else around here.

[TO KOIZUMI ONLY]

Hey, Koizumi! I remembered something megas neat! Wanna meet me in the restaurant for something to drink? I wanna see if it helps you out at all!

There is a specific part of the brain that stores memories. [ He doesn't even bother -- he just rolls right into it, hands in his lap, legs crossed, a smile on his face. ]

The limbic system is... about -- [ He taps the not-quite-top of his head with a grin. ] here. Well, around here. It's a set of brain structures including the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior thalamic nuclei, septum, limbic cortex and fornix, which support a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, long term memory, and olfaction. By now, I'm sure most of us are familiar with amnesia. It's a condition in which one's memory is lost. [ He makes a gesture with his hand, flicking it, then joining his hands together again and placing his elbows on the table. ]

The causes of amnesia can be split up into different categories. Supposedly, they can be any condition that interferes with the functions of this particular system. [ He pauses, smile never faltering. ] For example, mental disorders, post-traumatic stress, and defense mechanisms. [ Another pause. Just to let that sink in. Then, he leans back, unlinking his hands. He holds up a hand -- two fingers out. ]

There are, in fact, two different kinds of amnesia. [ One finger goes down. ] Antereograde amnesia, and... [ The other raises once again. ] retrograde amnesia. [ He gestures with that same hand. The guy is practically talking with his hands. ] Retrograde amnesia is the loss of pre-existing memories to conscious recollection, beyond an ordinary degree of forgetfulness. Think of it like a full tea pot. The liquid can be poured into a cup, essentially removing the tea. However, the tea can be replaced. Though, it isn't generally seen as good manners to pour tea back into a tea pot. [ He chuckles. ]

Memories can be categorized as well... procedural memory can be automated skills, where as more personal memories like your name, or a specific episode that occurred to you, those are classified as declarative memory. Only one is generally affected. Let's say a man forgets things like his name, address, family, who he is, where he's been in his life, and everything that's ever happened in his life that has made him into the person he presently is. However, he learned piano at some point in his life. The time at which he learned this skill isn't really important. He learned it, that's what matters. He doesn't forget how to play piano. In fact, he plays just as well as he had without his amnesia. Personal details are declarative memories. Something like being able to play an instrument is a learned skill, so it falls under procedural memories. The tea that was poured into the cup was his declarative memories, so to speak.

As I said, there are a lot of causes for amnesia. Stress, trauma, mental disorders... [ his words linger for a moment. ] Well, the possibilities are endless. I can't help but wonder... if I'm forgetting all these things in response to something else.

... Sorry, I was just kidding.

Lessee, we gots this many people in the Hotel now, and we can reasonably assume they're gonna need to eat about this much food, hmm...

*Tsuruya is hard at work on something! She's got a bunch of food flyers, and some paper, and a calculator, and she's taking notes.*

...this is gonna be megas hard to pull off. I wonder if there's some other jobs I can takes to pull in a little more money for this? It'll be a lotta fun for folks, but if I can't feeds 'em all proper...
[identity profile] normal-anomaly.livejournal.com
[Audio]

Well, I remembered something else. A really minor detail, though.

...And I have a job. It's not the best job out there, but at least it's a job, I guess.

Out of curiosity, who else has gotten jobs?

Yeah. A paper route. So much for any chance of a night life. But I'd rather have money than a night life, so I guess I'll just have to bear with it.

And what's with the memory? Did I really sit there and listen to a classmate grade the girls in our class?

[ The feed turns on to a close-up of Haruhi's face, who's grinning ear to ear. However, she backs up slightly, folding her arms as she yells out loud (and if you're in her apartment or live near her, you'll be able to hear): ]

Attention!

This is Suzumiya Haruhi speaking. [ Of course, she still doesn't 'technically' remember her last name, but she trusts Kyon's judgement when he told her so... she'll be using it. Besides, it's not like amnesiacs would lie, right? Right. ] Anyway, I remembered something really amazing! Apparently- I was right! I'm a really important person, a brigade leader in fact!

And what brigade is that, you ask? [ As she asks that question, she says it with a detective's intonation, as if she's trying to make you curious. ] It's the ultra-special, super-cool, S.O.S Brigade!

Which is short for "Spreading Excitement all Over the World with Haruhi Suzumiya Brigade"! Now then, what does this brigade do? [ Pause... ] I don't remember! But, that doesn't matter! Until I figure out what the brigade is truly for, I'll be using this brigade in order to have fun, find aliens, time travelers, espers, and sliders-- and make life really exciting!

Also: Kyon, right? You're a part of this brigade, and I don't care if you don't remember- you're still an official member, and I'm keeping it that way!!

For everyone else, just meet me outside of the apartments if you'd like to join! I'm sure it'll be really exciting!

Hey everyone! I just remembered some more stuff! In fact, I remembered something pretty awesome! There's this gal I know, Mikuru Asahina, from back home, and she's the cutest thing ever! She's also one of my megas best friends, isn't that great? We met in high school and we totally hit it off! Man, what a great thing to remember -- I can't wait to remember more stuff!

Oh, and Kyon, the farmer gotcha something extra nice! Wanna come by to get it?

I see a few people have remembered their full names... but...

Has anyone remembered having a name entirely different from the one they woke up with? The name I remembered when I arrived in Sirocco is 'Lyon'... but I was given the name 'Mismar' as a child. Er, as far as I can tell, at least. There must be a reason I remembered one rather than the other... I wish I knew what that reason was, though.

[Lyon sighs deeply, obviously troubled by this... but after a moment, she shakes her head and smiles into the camera.]

I did remember something else, though! Something nice and a lot less confusing. I'm a knight back home -- er, a knight apprentice, actually -- and a bodyguard for... someone important, I think. But it explains the armor and weapon I've had with me! Just... not my name, or... [She trails off and looks down at her left hand, which is conveniently off-camera.] Not even the tattoo.

Who: Open to all!
What: Miscellaneous activities
When: Friday, 10/21
Where: Farmer Carol's farm.
How: ...Walking, running, skipping, or log-rolling are all acceptable.
Why: Because I want to.

As Palom had promised, the farm indeed boasted more wholesome family fun activities than you could shake an apple at.  While the main purpose of the day trip, ostensibly, was to finish up harvesting the fruit, the opportunity to explore the farm and its rural surroundings was enticing as well.  By mid-afternoon, Farmer Carol was fully satisfied with the hard work of the volunteers and announced that they were free to do as they pleased.

[You are free to post!]

[Apple picking was apple picking.  A relaxing day under the sun enjoying the fruits of nature and communing with the peace and tranquility that accompanied the rural surroundings.  Surely nothing could go wrong on such a simple chore.  After a day spent in such a leisurely manner, Palom flips on his gadget-thingy late one night to announce excitedly into the feed.]

Guys, guys!  They paid us to eat apples[Pick was the more technically correct word there, but he wasn't particular.] 

Look at all the stuff I got!  [The video will pan out to a bag of apples, two boxes of doughnuts (one already empty), and a gallon of apple cider.  Palom's face reinserts itself with an expression of excitement and a sprinkling of doughnut dust around his lips.]  And they're not even done!  She wants me to come back tomorrow because I was the best helper anyone could ever possibly ask for!

[Actually, she'd said something about 'a good effort' but again.  Words.]   And she said for me to bring all of my friends!  I don't have any friends, so I'm asking all of you instead!  And she says when we're done, or even if we just wanna take a break, the farm has hay rides and corn mazes and bonfires and pumpkin carving, and I don't know what any of those are except bonfires those are neat but it sounds like a lotta fun!  You should all come with me later this week!

Also I ate the most delicious food I ever had in my life; what are doughnuts and why didn't I know these existed?

[action for Porom]
[Wherever Porom is, Palom will announce his presence with a flying leap.]

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiis!  I've got something for you!

((OoC: So yeah!  I was thinking of starting a small log with apple picking and hay rides and all that typical fun autumn stuff and throwing it up tomorrow night; this is the IC announcement!  You don't have to post here to post in the log later.  And it's just for fun and games and that sort of thing!  I hope this is OK, mods!))

I'm not buying this load of crap one bit! Someone here decided to kidnap me, didn't they?! And they must have hit me on the head so I'd get amnesia! I'm super adorable and probably a princess or something, so they thought they'd get a ton of money for my safe return, but I obviously outsmarted them and escaped, and now I'm wandering around lost without any idea how to get home!

I'm on to you, you evil kidnappers!

[After calming down a bit, Relm discovers that she has a sketchpad and paints with her. Naturally, she can't resist trying them out. She draws the first few things that come to her mind - an impressive-looking red dragon, a large black dog, and some sort of giant raccoon. As she sits back to admire her work, there is a bright flash of light, and suddenly the things on the page are right before her eyes - very real, very alive, and very angry.]

... What do you do if you just remembered -- [A slight pause, for about ten seconds or so] kissing someone?

Does that mean that you like him?

A- And don't get me wrong, he was the one who kissed me, alright?!

I have a question. Has anybody else remembered someone back home who ended up here?

Mokona's new job is running the Job board!

It goes up two times each month, so look out for it near the apartment doors!
If anyone ever wants a job done for them, just tell Mokona and she'll put it on the board!

This time, there are six jobs!

Helping People Jobs

- Farmer Murphy has lost a goat! She has floppy ears and a black patch on her nose and she loves eating petunias the best! He wants someone to find Maybell and bring her back soon!

- Farmer Carol's orchards are super full this year and she needs someone to help pick all the apples before they all get frozen! She'll take as many extra helpers as she can, and she says she'll throw in a bag of apples along with regular pay! She gave Mokona some for putting up the job; and they're really good!

Big Jobs

There's still a lot of wrecked buildings outside! It's safe, but there's no nice places to live yet. And that means that there's always a lot to do!

- The streets are really icky out there! They're covered in rubble and need to be cleaned! It's a long job, so it's good for someone without anything else to do! It's a really big job, so up to two people can do it. It's long and tough, so bring a friend to work and talk with! There might be anemoi in the rubble, and you can keep any you find!

- There's a big house near the walls that's dirty too! It needs to be cleaned up so people can do things with it. Again, it's a job for two people who really like housework and repairing things! You don't need to worry about water or lights yet, but everything needs to be clean and painted and not broken or rotten or anything.

Scary Jobs

- There's a big mean bird that keeps messing up gardens and scaring pets! Mokona's not walking home alone from now on, too! It's big and yellow and goes "WARK WARK WARK!!" It's not too good at flying, but it can jump high and runs really fast. People say it might be nesting near the old movie theater, since lots of feathers show up there.

- Sue Salvatore has a spooky ghost in her kitchen and it's really annoying her! If anyone is good with ghosts, they should go to her house at night and ask to see it!



((OOC: This is 100% mod-sanctioned; y'all, and you know what that means! FYI in this case it means memories. Or at least memories in some cases! It is pretty much like in RPGs where you collect all the chickens and you don't know whether you're getting rupees or an empty bottle or a basket full of live fish until you do it.

I'll be rolling out results via random number generator to remove bias, and even if they don't get anemoi they will at least get a nifty bonus item. What Mokona says doesn't necessarily mean that there absolutely will be or won't be anemoi attached to a particular job. It is a wonderful grab bag of memories and fun.

Some jobs have a Mod NPC associated with them! In this case, the ghost and the goat assignments do. The bird is a feral chocobo and can be NPCed by players.

As stated by Mokona, if you want your character to request a job, go for it! Heck, if you yourself just want a certain job up there, just PM or Plurk at me! I'm gonna be doing like twelve of these per month, I am always up for new material and I rarely bite.

And if there are any further questions, ask away! Also feel free to plan OOCly in here for now although if things get huge enough I'll probably start putting up a separate post for that sort of thing.))

*Apparently Tsuruya wasn't kidding when she said she was going to look for a job. At least, not if the fact she's your server for today at the restaurant downstairs is anything to go by. Perhaps unsurprisingly, she already seems pretty popular; after all, who doesn't like a pretty young waitress who clearly enjoys what she's doing?*

Heyas! How YOU doing? Feel free to get as much of what you like, and remember: you can have as much water as you want for free! Hahahaha!

You know, Mokona isn't the only Mokona in the world, since she grew up with another Mokona! Mokona and Mokona were raised by a guy who lived in a big house and a woman who lived in super cool shop. They liked each other very much, and liked to be drunk and argue almost as much.

Mokona's full name is Mokona Modoki, which means "Mock Mokona". Mokona Modoki is the name of Mokona's friend, too, so there must be other kinds of Mokona we've never met. Since Mokona and the other Mokona are "Modoki", there must be a difference.

Mokona has lots of special tricks, but she hasn't remembered them all yet. Maybe Mokona who are "Modoki" and Mokona who are not "Modoki" can do different things.

[The video feed turns on to show a young teenage brunette, pouting angrily.]

This is ridiculous.

Anyway! If any of you guys know the name ‘Haruhi’ in any way, report to me immediately. I will accept no excuses. [She hesitates, but then gives a smirk-] But for those who do remember something, if you’re an alien, time traveler, or esper – or even anything amazing or super-cool, report as well!

… And I suppose everyone else should just introduce themselves.

That is all. [After a few seconds, the feed shuts off.]

1) [Catherine's been pacing by the entrance again, but this time it's not in fear. It's... restlessness. She's been hiding inside for days, but nothing's connected here, she can't go anywhere, do anything. But this is conflicting with agoraphobia. Back and forth she goes, before-]

Oh, fuck it.

[Aaaaand out she goes, shielding her eyes against the sun.]



2) [While out on this journey of hers, she remembers something! And is completely dumbfounded by it.]

Hey. On a scale of "Einstein" to "fucking retarded," how bright would you say building a town next to a nuke sounds?



3) [Was her journey done or just starting? She got everything she needed. Some bottled water, a few snacks, some .44 caliber bullets...

Maybe you're near the habitation border. Maybe you're trying to get a group together. Here comes Catherine! ...and there goes Catherine, crossing the line without so much as blinking. The only noticeable difference is there's now a revolver in her hand.]
