I'm sure everyone here came from happy, functional families. Forcing us to talk about our homes couldn't possibly wreak havoc, City.

Hm. I can't say much about my father. He was never there. I started working for ShinRa because he wanted me to. He was an MP for most of my childhood, dispatched wherever they needed him. He wanted me to be the same, or to go into SOLDIER.

At any rate, he lived in the barracks and Mother and I kept a small house in a village just a few miles south of Kalm. She had huge gardens on every side of the house. She grew all of our food, but she really loved the flowers. Wildflowers, roses -- if it bloomed, she would grow it. And then Father was transferred -- forced retirement, more like, he was too old to fight. Work detail in Junon. He finally got an apartment and moved us to the city to be with him. We lived outside of town, in the lower water, off by the docks. It always smelled like dead fish, and nothing would grow. Mother kept a small window box, and I used to walk it out to the beach every day to catch some sunshine.

Father didn't approve when I decided to continue school rather than enlist. Even when I dropped out to work for ShinRa, he wasn't happy. Well, I might have been more of the man he'd wanted if he'd been around occasionally.

He died a little after construction was completed on Midgar. By then I had enough to buy Mother a house on the upper level. We imported soil from all over the planet for her garden. Sector 8 was the only one with natural top soil; everywhere else it was synthetic. It didn't matter. She'd really loved Father, though I'll never understand how. She stopped planting her gardens -- not all at once, but slowly. And I stopped coming by as often as I should have.

She had Denzel, the last few weeks. He helped her plant again, even though it was December. And then Meteor -- We tried to evacuate everyone, but she wouldn't leave gardens. And there were too many lives for them to stop and argue with one senile old lady. She was one of the people we didn't get out.

I think -- it was probably better. What a terrible thing to say. I don't know if they'd told her I was dead by that point, or if they'd told her I'd betrayed the company, but she was tired. The garden was all washed away by the Lifestream, anyway.

Oh. And I have no need of sugar, Deities, nor am I going anywhere near that woman to claim some.

[OOC: Info on Reeve's father is mostly fanon. All the stuff on Ruvi, however, is as canon as you consider the cracktastic short stories set between Advent Children and DoC to be. XD;;;;

As for the sugar... well, the only real enemy Reeve's got in the City is Jadis, and she's got enemies of her own, amIrite?]

She's still breathing -- she's not responsive at all, and her heart rate --

Isn't there anyone left in this damned place?

[OOC: Reeve will not be answering tags today. He believes that all of his friends in the City have gone home.

She is Anita.]

Oh -- Oh!

I remember.

[OOC: Reeve remembers dying. Is it the curse? Peter taking Jadis's wand? The fact that I don't have a computer? Who knows!]

She's gone.

At least it's over. Until the next wretched curse, of course. I understand there's an Earth holiday coming up, I'm sure the city will rise to the occasion.

Niko, I'll definitely be in today.

[OOC: What hiatus?

In the first line, he means this. Log still in progress.]

How can we simultaneously have lost the coffee carafe, the coffee filters, the coffee itself and every mug in the house? Oh, wait, here's Yuffie's "Ninjas over Pirates" mug... I'll be dead before I --

Fine, I'll just go to the store.

Walter, I'll be slightly late to the workshop this morning. Unless you have coffee there?

...Apparently this bruise isn't going to be healing anytime soon. Lovely. At least the beard mostly covers it... I look like I've gotten into a street brawl.

This month is just doing wonders for my image.

[This post is not three days late, I don't know what you're talking about. Hey, look, Amelia Erhart! *points*]

I appear to be unaffected by today's curse. At least I don't have to confront this so soon after.

private to Dmitri//Unhackable

Did you go home last night? I stayed at the station.

We should probably talk. About the apartment.


Private to Reno//Unhackable

Gaia, this is embarrassing.

Can I ask a favor?

urbandev: (Suicide is painless)

Where --

Gaia, it hurts to breathe. Fuck.

Where am I? The last thing I remember --

What time is it?




I suppose the police will want to be talking to me.


Mr. Leandros, I'm very sorry I was not at work yesterday. Walter, I doubt I'll be seeing you this morning.

Is there anybody around?

[OOC: OK, so it hasn't been EXACTLY 24 hours. I couldn't help it. I missed my boy.]
urbandev: (been living for tomorrows all my life)
//Charming, Reeve. The unmistakable sound of someone being noisily, and thoroughly, ill.//


NOT my daughter. Or anything else sick you'd like to throw at us, Deities.

[ooc 1: retconned liek woah

ooc 2:I'm on my mother's micro pc, which has no html brackets, so plz excuse the creative formatting.]

The last few curses appear to have missed me. Not altogether unfortunate, especially in the case of yesterday. I tried to stay off the network for the most part -- some things don't need to be aired to the general public. Is everyone recovered?

Saturday was--

Amanda's in the Hall of the Missing again. I suppose she made it home. I hope she stays there, this time.

Rabid Vincent.

[Static and laughter] Vincent frolicking in the woods with all the squirrels and and raccoons and whatever other animals carry rabies.

Like one of those cartoons Marlene watches.

This image is too hilarious not to share. Not that I'm not compelled to share it anyway.

I mean, he's part dog, right? He totally could get rabies.

If he reads this I am so very, very dead.

Assuming I don't just kill myself of embarrassment at midnight.

This place is supremely unpleasant. People who are supposed to be back home taking care of the people I left behind are here. People who are supposed to be dead are also here, and they're alive. Oh well, at least Cloud isn't here; he'd probably just fall over if he saw Zack. I always thought he was kind of a whimp.

Backspace, backspace... come ON --

Either my PHS is broken or this is just one more lovely side effect of this city. Zack, just... pretend you didn't read that.

I'm also very, very much not enjoying these curses.

And I'm probably a really bad person for being glad Yuffie's here, aren't I? At least I have someone with me.

Yuffie, pretend you didn't read that.

I want to go home.
urbandev: (Awash in red)
Hello? Is anyone getting this? My PHS appears to be working – if anyone can read this, please let me know.

I would also like an explanation for what just happened. Twenty minutes ago I was outside Junon fighting – never mind, the point is, this isn't Junon.

What is this place? Or rather, where am I? Anyone? Some help would be greatly appreciated.
