[It's probably the first time in a long time this Kanda's actually been seen in the DR. Coping with a loss of his own, in his own way. But today he decided he'd go out, wander the empty halls a bit until he found himself in a library.

He no longer wore the Order's uniform (yet Mugen still rested on his hip with aid of his uniform belt), though he was still dressed very nicely (thanks to a certain Cross), simple dress shirt and slacks. Around his neck on a silver chain rested two matching rings. His hair was up, but not in its usual fashion, resting at the nape of his neck instead.

Kanda wandered the library a bit, stopping when he found himself at a shelf of romance novels.

His Alma's favorite kind, thanks to a certain Lavi.

There's a weak tug at his lips before he grabs one (short, tame) before heading to the closest couch to sit on and read it.]

It’s been awhile since he’s been out or rather lets himself be seen. He was planning to get some lunch and put his work aside, but it seems he wasn’t able to leave his work in his room. A tray of untouched food was carelessly placed far away from him while other objects were sprawled in front of him. Different tools all of different sizes and other various things. A clump of metal was in front of him. At first glance it looked like a pile of junk but it was something he was working on. Unfortunately he couldn’t figure out what to do with it he couldn't it make it work, or at least look more appealing. Pygmy sat on the table far away from his owner chewing on a small screwdriver. He could sense his agitation. Moments like these is when he didn’t want anyone near him. He had to focus, distractions will not be tolerated. 

But this was the DR distractions were bound to happen.

[After who knows how long, there's a Tyki sitting on a couch in one of the rooms with a crib beside it. Inside of that crib are two sleeping babies, a blue-gray Tease perched on top while watching over them.

As for Tyki himself, he has a book in his hand while lazily sucking on a chocolate cigarette.]

[Cross stood in a courtyard, Mjolnir in hand, staring up at the sky like he was examining it for something. And he was. Shifting his hammer in his hand to grip the strap, he started swinging it until it was only a blur. Clearly he was trying to summon a storm but nothing materialized for him.]

What horrible magic does this place possess that prevents me from summoning something so simple?

[Cross gave a sigh and stopped his attempts for the moment before tossing Mjolnir to strike a tree, calling it back once it makes impact.]

[It's probably extremely unusual to see a Kanda with a young baby - an infant, really - let alone asleep while she's nomming and tugging on his very messy hair. It's obvious what her favorite play toy is despite having teddy bears and other baby toys scattered about the sitting room floor.

After a bit more tugging Gabriel opens his eyes, looking at her and lifting his other hand to look at the empty bottle.]
You are a little piglet, Belle.

[Today starts out like any other day (unless some occupants are still suffering from last week's tea party). Endless hallways, duplicates, sunshine, free food, yadda yadda yadda]

[Except that sometime today when you turn a corner or walk into a room, something unexpected happens. Whether or not you're inside or out, it will start to rain. A light, drizzling, spring rain that literally sizzles when it makes contact with something. Yes, sizzles. Or zaps might be an appropriate term. The rain literally sparkles with its own magical energy]

[That can't be good]

Oh joy, you're stuck in a room, and there's a fabulous tea party being held in it. With 24 fabulous flavors to pick from:

23. Maté Tea:
You've just lost one of your five senses.

24. Milk Tea:
Causes the uncontrollable urge to dance.

The cakes and other various sweets scattered about won't do anything to you, but if you opt for a plain glass of water instead, there is a good chance it may spontaneously decide to become a tea...

[Tea parties are a staple of the DR, and for those who are new, feel free to check out how it's been done in the past. For those who are old, be sure to read over the teas, because a few changes have been made, to switch things up. All effects are temporary, but severity and duration is at the mun's discretion. Feel free to use the RNG if you can't decide on a tea!]

[Those entering this hallway will find an unusual sight, at least it would be in most homes. Kanda is all dressed up in a kimono and he's trying to get Lavi into a yukata but it seems like Lavi is just determined to make it difficult. He's not following directions very well.]

I thought you said to hold it closed the other way! [Lavi currently has the design on his yukata covered up by the plain cloth that was supposed to go under.]

I said my left, Lavi! [There’s just a huff of frustration from Kanda as he moves to try and fix the yukata, shooing Lavi’s hands off once things are held down properly and he doesn’t need the help anymore.

If the golems could, they’d probably be giggling at this. But since they can’t, they just innocently watch while hovering closer by.]

[[ Spy and Eloi will respond separately! ]]

[Hello, Dressing Room. Long time no see.

A certain Fallen angel's decided to hole himself up in a library somewhere, scribbling things down. He has a lollipop in his mouth and ignoring Rihan trying to climb onto his lap. Eventually, he pauses and scratches his head with the end of the pen he's holding.]

...No, don't think the spells go like that. Maybe this way. [Resumes writing.]

[It's that time again! Someone's very merry birthday is today, and the Dressing Room is going all out as usual to celebrate it]

[Every Lenalee in the Dressing Room will be getting a lovely bunch of birthday flowers plus a delicious looking Jerry-made cake in the kitchen nearest to them. And a pile of presents, of course. What would a birthday be without presents]

[Also, since the Dressing Room doesn't understand the meaning of subtle, large banners will be strung up in the halls announcing Lenalee's birthday so all the other residents may get their gifts ready (or scramble for a last minute one)]

[Happy Birthday, Lenalee!]

At this party there's lots of pinks and red, as well as a whole lot of hearts.

A few members of the DR might feel a bit of pinch in their rear--one of cupid's arrows has hit them! Use RNG to decide how long they'll fall for the next person they see:

  1. hours
  2. days
  3. weeks

(1-5) of the previous

Remember that just because one person has been hit by an arrow, it doesn't mean the other did.

[Everyone knows that an occasional tree in any courtyard may bare fruit. Apples, oranges, pears, apricots, kiwis, mango, peaches, etc. Free for anyone to enjoy.

When this straggly, young brownsprout found an apple tree nothing in the world could stop him from climbing up faster than any monkey and grabbing every apple he could reach. He hungrily bit into one. A look of pure delight appeared upon his face.

Normally this wouldn't mean all that much to most people, but judging from the tattered, dirty clothing the young boy wore, he didn't have as much from the beginning.]

[The hallways have been shifting again: the rooms along this hall weren't there yesterday. Whatever you were expecting to see is likewise absent. It's dusty, here, and there's a very unpleasant smell in the air. It smells like death, in fact.

And then you hear a loud cough, followed by a choking noise.

If you go into the second room along this hall, you'll find it's a nice sitting room with comfortable armchairs...but it seems as if it hasn't been used for months. Even so, propped up in one of those chairs is a man in a clown outfit who's looking incredibly disorientated and groggy. He's just as covered in dust and the odd spider's web as the chair and the rest of the room are. Can you just leave him there?]

[In one of the neutral kitchens, there sits a Cross. Book in hand, cup of tea and plate of food beside him and a violin case on the counter with him. Upon further inspection, the book in his hand would be a guide on how to build a violin.

The book gets set down by the tea and the former exorcist opens his case to examine his very broken instrument before letting out a sigh. He takes out the four pieces and looks them over, trying to figure out just how to fix it and still have it sound the same. Cross sets the pieces back in the case and extracts his cigarette case from his coat, the need to smoke every cigarette rising with each passing moment. Cigarette lit and first drag taken, he lets out a sigh, tendrils of smoke rising in the air as he rubs the bridge of his nose. Yes. He does happen to be feeling the start of a headache.]

Damn it Nea. I should break his piano after this just to do it.

[Fell free to pester the man but don't bother telling him to just get another one, this one happened to be important and he'd probably brush off any attempts from others to get him to do so.]

[Here we have another Kanda, no golems or uniforms for this one though. Kanda's just sitting - or rather squatting - down on the floor with his back against the wall in one of the northern hallways, messing with his phone.

Or, if one looks, trying to come up with Valentine's Day gifts.

Care to bother?]

[Once again Dressing Room one of your sitting rooms has become a coloring cave of one vampire. He's gotten his hands on a paint by numbers kit but instead of using paints (they smell too strong), Allen has found crayons to match the colors necessary to do the painting.

There are a few more laying around that he's discarded but might be of interest for you to use.]

[Someone passing by this kitchen might notice the smell of baked goods in the air. But something is off about this picture. First of all, there is not a Link or Lenalee in sight (unless the person passing by happens to be one). And secondly, almost overpowering the bakery fresh smell is the smell of something burnt. Bad. Like charcoal bad]

[Should one look into the kitchen where the lovely fragrance is coming from, they will see at least two failed cake monstrosities. One black as the Order's uniforms and one as flat as a pancake and hard as a hockey puck. Empty boxes of pre-made cake batter are strewn around carelessly indicating that there may have been other causalities of war in here]

[Kneeling in front of the stove with the next sacrificial cake is one Lavi looking very disgruntled with life in general and glaring at the room's other occupant]

[The other occupant happens to be another Lavi calmly reading the newspaper with a smug look on his face that might even put Tyki to shame]

Baking? Really now. Why not just give up this facade that you have any manliness points left and resign yourself to drinking that tea you so like to horde? It probably would do you a world of good.

[[ooc: Lavi and the Apprentice are both out to celebrate their very unofficial not!birthday. Anyone else feel like some Doublemint gum?]

[down a hallway here going towards the Exorcists' wing of the Dressing Room, there's a very tired-looking Kanda walking. He's wearing his full uniform, and Mugen is still in his hand, even though he's in safe territory now. He looks like... well, like he's been doing exactly what he has been doing, which is patrolling for a good sixteen hours or so straight. For the... oh, probably twentieth day in a row.

Because really, what else is there to do in this place?

If he spots you he'll straighten up and act like he's fine, but if he doesn't, well... it's obvious how exhausted he is.]

Well, this isn't where he was going.

Lavi stares a bit dumbfounded at the hot spring courtyard he's found himself in the middle of.]

I...don't think Allen is here.

[It's been three months since Miranda's return and three months of healing from her injuries. With her bandages removed, the nurses finally gave her the OK to start her physical therapy to exercise the muscle lost in her arms while recovering. Luckily the workout was easy, and something she could do herself.

Oddly enough, Miranda stood in an open sitting room and seemed to be lifting weights. Except upon closer look they weren't weights... They were mugs. Just your standard white mugs... She would bend down to touch the floor with them, then lift them up above her head and move her arms from side to side. It looked a little silly... especially once she set them down and repeatedly opened and closed her hands, while wiggling her fingers...]
