Mission 24: [Video]

This is somewhat belated, but I have been occupied recently. Can someone explain the previous event to me? I saw indications there was some manner of reference involved in the entire city turning green.

[It was a little too much green, really. Reminded him of being in a mako-filled tube.]

Mission 18: [Accidental Video] Backdated to Wednesday

[The video feed is coming from Ulquiorra's PCD, however wayward, and the quick, easy slaughter of a Menos is certainly appropriate. The pause is slightly less so; the expression is subtle and hard to pin down, but he looks like he isn't sure he wants it.

After a moment, there's a flicker of resignation. Whether he wants it or not, he needs to eat it. 'Ulquiorra' puts his sword away and tears into the other Hollow. Mercifully for those with weak stomachs, the feed blinks out only a few seconds later.]

(The game here is, of course, who can figure out this isn't Ulqui, and how quickly.)

Mission 17: [Video]

[The PCD that has spent the last week listed as being off the network blinks on a video feed. As always, the look is subtle, but Sephiroth looks a bit puzzled.

Weren't there traps going off all over the place when he'd headed out to the Wastes that morning? Nothing besides the usual had troubled him as he re-entered the city.]

Did the event end early?

Mission 16: [Accidental Video]

[The feed blinks on as the PCD drops out of Sephiroth's coat pocket. The coat that Sephiroth is no longer wearing; the video catches him throwing it over a gravestone, hiding it from sight. The stone, of course, is only one out of a number he almost finds surprising. The names on them, however, are not surprising at all.

Angeal Hewley. Genesis Rhapsodos. Zack Fair. Faramis Gast. Lucrecia Crescent. Vincent Valentine.

All from his own world, with dates in Gaia's calendar. All people who have been important in his old life, even if he only found out about Vincent and Lucrecia here. But there are more stones, with more names that have nothing to do with his world.

Unohana Retsu. Gaignun Kukai Jr. Albedo Piazzola. Ulquiorra Cifer. Tsukino Usagi.

You get no prize for guessing what name is on the stone Sephiroth covered up.

His own grave is there, too, a monument topped with a guardian angel statue. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the statue seems to be missing a wing. There are three sets of dates inscribed on it, though on the third set, both dates are the same. He's already watched himself die at Cloud Strife's hands far more than could possibly be healthy for anyone, though not looking at the dates isn't any better thanks to the damn hallucinations. Listening to the bullshit spouted by his insane self is slightly less than entertaining.]

You betrayed Mother. [More voices speaking to him that no one else could hear.]

Jenova is not my mother and you are an abomination. I would almost consider these mercy killings if Strife were not such an ass.

[Despite the defiant words, Sephiroth looks more tired and depressed than anything, and the feed blinks out as he sits down by the covered grave.]

Mission 15: [Video] Backdated to late last night.

[Completely failed filter to Jr./Albedo because it's the middle of the night and he was trying to sleep.]

I have had enough, you two. [Sleepy and annoyed Sephiroth is sleepy and annoyed. Also shirtless and in bed, tangled up in his sheets.]

I realize your intentions are good but your methods leave much to be desired. This has been going on for weeks. Shut up and let me sleep in peace or I swear I will find a way to make you regret it.



(Side note: Completely failed to post about slowatus anywhere but Plurk. I have computer usage restrictions now, too, much like sister only a little more lenient. So.... that's why I've been even slower than usual lately. Who would have thought it was possible? :\ )

Mission 14 : [Accidental Video] Technically before Uki's post, orz.

[The first, most visible thing when the feed blinks on is feathers. Sephiroth's wing almost seems to be dissolving from tip to base in a flurry of black feathers that blow away on the breeze. When those clear away a bit, Sephiroth himself becomes easier to see, taking a shaky step backwards. The angle on the video is such that it's impossible to see what he's retreating from, but the look on his face and the blood on Masamune's blade are both clear.

Even to the average observer, it's obvious that Sephiroth is pained and horrified. To the people who actually know him, and how subtle his displays of emotion usually are, the expression is like a blinking neon warning that he is in Bad Shape. When he speaks, it's barely audible and sounds... broken.]

No...

[The PCD feed jostles and eventually blinks out as Sephiroth snatches the device back up and, for the first time in his life, runs from something.]

Mission 13 : [Video] Sunday morning-ish

[Theoretically, with Madara's power broken and he himself sealed, everyone should be back to normal. However, most of 'everyone' does not have an opportunistic alien virus lurking in the back of their minds waiting for a moment of weakness.

A moment of weakness like, say, most of a week spent with their free will suppressed.

So when the feed from Sephiroth's retrieved PCD blinks on, it's displaying a Sephiroth only one person here has seen before. A Sephiroth with a single black wing arching from his right shoulder, the sky as his backdrop, and a look of disdain and simmering malice on his face.]

Hmph. This place... Madara may be content to attempt to rule in Hell, but I am not. Mother is calling me. She wishes for my return. I will go to her...

[Sephiroth swings his sword several times, sending arcs of blue-white energy hurtling downward. While it doesn't show up on the feed, a luckily already derelict building in the city crumbles under the assault.]

If I must turn this worthless, soulless planet into rubble to do so.

Mission 12 : [Accidental Video] Meant to be posted last night but comp kicked me off.

[The PCD has apparently been set aside in a moment of distraction and turned itself on. Sephiroth doesn't notice the blinking red light as he frowns curiously at the man running the particular booth. He's really only gone out to examine the festival because he knows full well that if he doesn't go on his own, he'll likely be dragged to it by Riku, Jr., or both.]

That's right, sir, it's a test of dexterity. You have to be quick, precise, and careful, or else the paper net tears and the fish stay in the water. Why don't you give it a try?

Very well. [He hands the attendant a couple of vaguely coin-shaped slices of rock, having noted quickly that they don't require actual money. On the first try he only ends up with a broken net, but he works out quickly where he went wrong, and on the second attempt he scoops out a pretty white fish with red spots.]

Congratulations, sir! One quick learner you are. Here!

[Sephiroth looks a touch surprised when the attendant puts the fish in a bag with some water and pushes it into his hands. Apparently he didn't realize that succeeding meant you won the fish. What is he going to do with a fish?]

Mission 10: [Voice]

[Since Sephiroth is currently bandaged on a bed in the clinic, he is not feeling terribly inclined to activate the video function of his PCD. The announcement he wants to make doesn't require him to be seen.]

I have completed my initial work of editing and updating the previously existing briefing for new arrivals. The revised briefing packet can be located here. [Insert network link here.]

I am available for feedback and suggestions if anyone believes vital information has been left out or presented poorly.

[Yes. This is what Sephiroth has been doing while confined to a bed in the clinic. Working. The man does not seem to have any conception of the meaning of 'inactivity'. Let alone 'complete bed rest'. It doesn't help that he is chafing at being in the clinic while other people have been investigating the Inner City.]

Mission 9: [Accidental Video]

[For a moment, the PCD just shows black from where it clattered to the ground. Then the black, apparently the black leather of Sephiroth's coat, slips away from the camera. The angle is weird and awkward, but it's not hard to see that Sephiroth is.... not in good shape. His materia bangle is clutched in his left hand, one of the materia on it just beginning to flicker with a dim green glow.

His right hand has blood all over it, mostly from a vicious gash on his right arm. Or maybe some of it is from that hole in his torso. All in all, there's plenty of blood to go around.]

Cur-

[His attempt to cast is cut off by a harsh coughing fit. As he lifts his right hand to his mouth to cover it, more blood spatters the black leather of his glove. This particular blood very definitely came out of his mouth. Internal injuries, maybe?]

...Curaga.

[Mission 8: Video] Backdated to before zombie event.

[Interestingly, Sephiroth is actually posting on purpose this time. So he is fully dressed and properly composed.]

I have been observing the initial feeds from the recent arrivals. Currently, it appears that what information they receive depends on who greets them and what questions they ask. Given that the simple lack of a warning not to pet the rabbits can lead to injury, this strikes me as a hazardous state of affairs.

I believe a standardized briefing should be compiled to be made available to new arrivals. I would welcome suggestions as to what current inhabitants consider vital information.

Mission 7: [Accidental Video]

[As with many other people this week, Sephiroth has not been getting much sleep. Enhanced hearing plus this don't really mix well. Especially when the soundtracks from other people's posts are added in.

The clattering noise and the way the PCD feed is jerking may indicate that he just threw the thing. Who knows where it landed, but it's in a place where it has a good video of Sephiroth sprawled over his bed.]

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman~

....I'm growing extremely short of patience with this. If there must be music, couldn't it at least be something classical?

[Whereupon the music promptly switches. Well... It's classical video game, anyway. Not that Sephiroth knows that. Nor does he know that the PCD is recording, so he buries his head under his pillow with a small sound of disgust.]

Mission 6: [Accidental Video]

[The PCD has just been dropped somewhere, but it's somewhere with a pretty good view of the room. Sephiroth doesn't notice the blinking light as he sits in a chair in the Hall of Fire. He is, naturally, back in his usual outfit. His expression is one of deep thought, or possibly brooding, distant and inward-focused. Finally, he stands, pacing around the hall a bit before approaching the fireplace.]

Mother...

[He rests one hand on the fireplace mantle, the other lifting to press against the side of his head in a way that could indicate pain or disorientation. Finally, the feed times out.]

Mission 5: [Video]

[Sephiroth is pretty visibly different. For one thing, he's wearing normal, casual clothing instead of his shoulder armor and combat leathers. For another, the cat-slit green eyes don't glow as brightly as they usually do. And for once, Masamune is nowhere to be seen. So yeah, Sephiroth is definitely affected.]

This is getting ridiculous. I'm hardly an expert on large-scale operations, but shouldn't the sane people be working together to contain the adversely affected instead of squabbling with each other over who is going to take care of what and how?

I may or may not be affected, obviously I wouldn't be able to tell, but I don't honestly care. At least I'm not planning any bloody massacres, and I'm willing to help deal with the people who are.

Mission 4: [Video]

[It's hard to tell what is going on at first since all the PCD is showing is black feathers. After a moment, it shakes a bit and then steadies as it's set down. With more distance, the video is now distinguishable as being Sephiroth... but with a single black wing curving out from his back on his right side. He doesn't look happy about it, either.]

This is not funny.

Mission 3 : [Video]

[The PCD is not picking up Sephiroth very well because he's holding it in one hand and moving a lot, but there are flashes of leather, silver hair, and steel. Mostly, what the PCD is picking up is the absolute devastation around him. Sephiroth is out in one of the more urban areas of the Wastelands, and he is destroying it. The mangled corpse of a horned worm is briefly visible as Sephiroth leaps into the air.

There's a quick series of slashes, visible as flickering steel in the feed, but more revealed by the arcs of blue-white light that result, cutting through a building and sending it crashing apart in pieces.]

This is unsatisfactory. Is there anyone willing to spar with me? In the interest of full disclosure, I am capable as both swordsman and magic user, and I am not in the best of moods.
