  1. Like a lot of you I found out yesterday about Des. It breaks my heart in so many ways since I remember so many good times with him around. From his screenshots in chat to his video game walkthroughs to him just being that kind and thoughtful guy that he was. It's hard to imagine not being able to hit him up and watch some new anime and giggle at all the new screenshots he would take. Heck, even my avatar is from a show he got me started on. =( I lost my dad to Kidney cancer and I remember how much that hurt. My heart goes out to his family since I know the pain they must be experiencing right now. I hope they find some peace in knowing just how much he was loved by his friends here. Rest in peace, Dessy. You'll be missed.
  2. Petie, what have you done to Otakuboards? ._.

  3. Chilling in Portland Oregon and loving it.

  4. Almonds and pecans. So tasty. And I love to make pecan pie. <3
  5. Where did you go missy?

      I'm so late answering this. ^^ I've been busy with work, school and clinicals. I'm taking a basic EMT course.

    [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Hiroki resisted the urge to yawn as he finished getting ready to leave for school. Usually any dreams he had faded fairly quickly but for some reason, this time it lingered in his mind, making him feel tired. Not even his usual cup of coffee with toast was enough to chase the sleepiness away.[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]He shoved it out of mind, as best as possible, as he grabbed his things and headed out, pausing only long enough to make sure he hadnâ??t left a mess in the kitchen. Not that his parents would ever notice. Both of them were always long gone before he ever got up and rarely came home before suppertime. If he had missed something all he had to do was take care of it when he got home from school.[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]As he opened the front door to leave, the urge to yawn came again and this time, Hiroki didnâ??t bother to stop it. He pulled the door shut; making sure it was locked, and headed towards school. At least it looked like it was going to be a nice day out. Pity he was likely to be bombarded with the usual round of â??when are you going to start preparing for medical school?â?? questions by all the teachers.[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Just because his father was a doctor didnâ??t mean he had the same interest. Heâ??d been able to put off both his parents and everyone else for now, somehow he got the feeling that it wasnâ??t going to work anymore. He was getting too close to when he had to finally make a decision as to where he would go to college.[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]This time he resisted the urge to sigh. No need to get annoyed over something that had yet to happen. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath and then let it out. With a determined step he opened them back up and set out for school at a brisk pace. Hopefully the pace and cool morning air would at least chase the sleepiness away. [/font][/size][/color]

    [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=3][color=#800080]Right now I've been playing Persona 4. I picked it up a few weeks ago. Aside from taking a while to get going... I've found it to be a rather enjoyable game. Now I just need to have time to actually finish it. I haven't been able to play the past week due to work, school and other obligations getting in the way.[/color][/size][/font]

    [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][color=#800080][size=2][size=3]I'm interested in the Sun aspect. However if I don't get a sheet made up tonight it won't happen till Sunday evening. I have a crazy schedule starting tomorrow morning, at 6am, that won't end till nearly 4pm Sunday. Provided that's no issue I'd like to claim a spot.[/size][/size][/color][/font] [b][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][color=#800080][size=2][size=3]EDIT: [/size][/size][/color][/font][/b][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][color=#800080][size=2][size=3]and here's the relevant sign up information.[/size][/size][/color][/font] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][b]Name: [/b]Hiroki Kaneko[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][b]Age: [/b]17[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][b]Gender:[/b] Male[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][b]Arcana:[/b] Sun[/font][/size][/color] [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][b]Appearance:[/b] Hiroki has black hair that is several inches in length, dark brown eyes, is of a slender build and approximately 5â??4.

Gavrie and Karl seemed to be preoccupied with sending messages and talking to someone via their cell phones while Phaidra and Alex flooded her with tales of a Reaper being killed by a gun wielding vampire. And what was this about Isen and Karl running into some messenger in the city who demanded a meeting with themâ?¦ [i]So thatâ??s where they wentâ?¦[/i] Lucia shook her head as she glanced at their familiars who had gathered and were chatting among themselves, speculating as to why Gavrie was calling a meeting. She looked back at the others. â??[b]Could you show me where the reaper was shot?[/b]â? â??[b]You donâ??t want to get anywhere near that vampire,[/b]â? Alex warned. â??[b]Iâ??m not interested in that. I want to see if I can pick up anything in the area.[/b]â? â??[b]Iâ??m serious, Lucia. Itâ??s dangerous.[/b]â? â??[b]So? Weâ??re going to have to go out to tend to our duties. I might pick up some residual readings or even find the actual bullet that was used. It would be useful to verify that they have started making bullets with the same material.[/b]â? â??[b]What about the meeting?[/b]â? Alex protested. Lucia snorted. â??[b]I mean after weâ??re done of course.[/b]â? She looked over at Gavrie who was being joined by Isen and Christine. â??[b]So just who all is coming to this meeting?[/b]â? â??[b]This is it.[/b]â? Gavrie indicated the group who had gone silent. â??[b]What about Nathan, Adrian and Astera?[/b]â? â??[b]Nathan is busy and Iâ??ll update Adrian and Astera when they get back tomorrow.[/b]â? Alex cleared his throat. â??[b]Itâ??s about those vampires that have taken the name of that old clan, isnâ??t it?[/b]â? Gavrie nodded. â??[b]Actually, it is the old clan, though we canâ??t guarantee that it actually is them...[/b]â? Isen made a little scoffing noise, interrupting Gavrie. â??[b]There is no doubt.[/b]â? Gavrie stared at her. â??[b]Iâ??m not the one who thought it was a good idea to keep the kids in the dark.[/b]â? He started to say more and then nodded once in Isenâ??s direction before turning back. â??[b]It [i]is [/i]the old clan, not some imposters and as youâ??ve heard, theyâ??re insisting on a meeting.[/b]â? Lucia raised an eyebrow. â??[b]Why should we bother to meet with them? Our duty in regards to vampires is unchanged.[/b]â? â??[b]You should, at the very least, take this seriously. The Jian are not to be trifled with.[/b]â? Gavrie answered her patiently. â??[b]So far youâ??ve operated under the assumption that it was a group trying to emulate them. Itâ??s not. Make no mistake, if they claim that they will take vengeance for not responding, they can and will.[/b]â? â??[b]I thought they were wiped out though.[/b]â? Phaidra objected. â??[b]And you thought vampires were gone too, yes?[/b]â? She nodded cautiously. â??[b]But if theyâ??re not gone, what are we to do? Iâ??d rather not meet or talk to any of themâ?¦ especially if theyâ??re like that one Alex and I ran into earlierâ?¦[/b]â? She shivered. â??[b]She makes a point,[/b]â? Alex frowned. â??[b]I wish Nathan hadnâ??t taken off like that. I donâ??t think this is something we can decide on without input from everyone.[/b]â? â??[b]And you wonâ??t.[/b]â? Gavrie assured him. â??[b]Once Iâ??ve had a chance to fill Adrian and Astera in I think itâ??s best if we all meet up again. In the meantime you all need to be careful, even more so.[/b]â? Alex nodded. â??[b]I still want to get scans from the area where the [/b][b]Shinigami[/b][b] was killed.[/b]â? Lucia pointed out. â??[b]The sooner I get that the better.[/b]â? Gavrie looked over at Karl who shrugged. â??[b]Fine, just stay in groups instead of going out alone, at least for the next couple of days.[/b]â? â??[b]Now, before we wrap this up, did you have any questions?[/b]â? He asked.[/font][/size][/color]
  10. [color=#800080][size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Iâ??ve only played Persona 4 but I do have some ideas and input for this RP. So Iâ??ll tell you what Iâ??ve thought of as I read through the responses here.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]You mentioned rescuing people as a means for introducing someone late into the RP. It occurred to me that you could also do something as simple as a new person moving into town. You could also have someone coming to essentially gawk in the hopes of catching the bizarre crimes in action. Heck you could even have someone passing through who spends the night at a hotel and has the dream that gets them involved, leaving them separate from the main people and yet with a persona on account of the dream encounter. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]So there are plenty of valid reasons for someone to get dragged into this RP that donâ??t involve interaction with the main characters in any form. Their introduction into the RP doesnâ??t have to be dramatic either, at least not at first. Lol[/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Now in relation to the dream world, Iâ??m thinking that itâ??s merely a means for people to be â??temptedâ?? so they end up running wild in the real world. That does imply that something or someone is using peopleâ??s dreams to cause this â??snapâ?? to happen, either way itâ??s just a thought and does leave an opening for someone evil to be behind it. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]I certainly like the idea of things being in the real world vs a different one with shadows in it to battle. This forces people to have to be creative with their solutions since what they do can indirectly kill or harm things in the real world. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]When it comes to people using their persona for good or bad, you could imply that the act of drawing on that power creates a bit of a ripple in reality itself. Only that ripple would be limited to a certain range, like say the size of a small room, building or however much the personâ??s psyche is capable of supporting. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]You could then leave it up in the air as to whether or not people present when that happens are drawn in or not, thus someone ending up dead cause they got in the way of the person going after their desires. There is also the possibility that this ripple isnâ??t something others can detect unless they have a persona. Maybe people canâ??t enter it once it happens, rather people who canâ??t draw on a persona that is.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]That would leave it open to make it harder for the authorities to track down or stop anything since theyâ??d have to literally be there when something happens. Thus making the need for people with their persona awakened a necessity to stop the madness that is happening in the city.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Anyway, those are just my initial thoughts on the concept. If I have more Iâ??ll post them. [/font][/size][/color]

I've sent everyone their copy via e-mail so all they have to do is get them back up in order. I included that info too. I believe Indi needs to post first.
