Welcome to another Activity Check!


The AC will run from July 24 through July 31, beginning and ending at MIDNIGHT EST. If that's confusing for you, just look here.

In order to pass AC, you will have to provide TWO proofs of your activity. What counts as a proof of activity? Simple! Any one or more network threads consisting of ten (10) or more comments from your character OR one or more log threads consisting of five (5) or more comments from your character. To make AC easier for you, we've created a nice little flowchart for you to follow. Remember, comments must be from July in order to count. That means anything from July 1 through July 31 will count towards AC.

There is now an additional requirement to passing AC!

Everyone is sent an approval email when their application is approved! We now require you do ALL of the following items from your approval email as part of your first month's AC with a new character.

1) Reply to the mod approval e-mail with the username that you will be using
2) Request to join these communities: thenearshore, thefarshore, takamagahara
  • New characters will not be granted access to the comms without having completed step #1
3) Fill out these forms and post them on your journal: permissions, god/shinki info
4) Make an inbox for your character and post it to your journal
5) Your application is posted on your journal as well
6) Reply to the Taken Character and God/Shinki Info pages, as well as the Tag Request post




Please copy the appropriate code, fill out the necessary information, and paste it in a reply to this post.

○ For Characters Accepted In July:


○ For All Other Characters:


This month will also have our mandatory bi-monthly HMD.

 Hi guys! Just a note to say I'm sorry I had to go AWOL for awhile due to family issues. I'm going to be slowly answering some old tags and poking at new things - if the tags are too old, no worries. 

Feel free to let me know if you want either of my girls anywhere as well! This goes for Riza here and Tot ([personal profile] papas_bunnydoll ).

[Video - BBS - August 7th]

Heheh! Looks like the heavens decided to apologize for gettin' me all wound up about Mamori a little while ago. I woke up to check my e-mail alerts for new MGDP merch, and there was a program I've never seen installed on my laptop. Somethin' called Singaloid TiKi. I don't remember buyin' it, but it's pretty awesome - one of those vocal editing software packages. And there was even a video already installed! Check this out!

[Barry's already loaded the video onto his phone, so he just switches the feed over to it. Denizens of the Far Shore are treated to a video of what is ostensibly a virtual idol programmed by the software, but the quality of both the video and the sound are so good that it's hard to tell she's not a real person. The actual video he posts doesn't feature the cutaways or the other characters - just Tiki herself, singing the song on a dazzling virtual stage.]

Not A Mirage World by Tiki )

Pretty amazin', huh! I'm gonna play around with it some more and see if I can come up with some more songs for Sparkle Motion. Remember to come see us at Obon - our show is really gonna blow you away!

[Action - Sparkle Motion - later that day]

Okay, everyone! We've only got a little bit of time left before the big show! Let's give it our best at practice today, and bring this thing home! And if anybody wants to try and write some new songs or come up with some new choreography...

[He turns his laptop around to show them the Singaloid software he'd recorded earlier that day.]

...Tiki here'll be happy to help!

Who: Lunafreya Nox Fleuret and you!
When: Morning of August 6
Where: Raphael's Cathedral, Far Shore
What: Waking up to a field of flowers

[On the morning of August 6th, after Luna has eaten breakfast and had her morning cup of tea, she heads out behind the cathedral to tend to the ulwaat berry bushes that Nari had helped her plant before. Today, though, there is much more plant life than she expected to see. A vibrant field of blue flowers stretches out in every direction, surrounding the cathedral on all sides. Luna simply lets out a surprised gasp as she sees it, hands coming up to cover her mouth as her eyes briefly begin to well with tears. It's clear they're tears of happiness, though - sylleblossoms are her favorite flower, after all, so this is a comforting and familiar sight that tugs at her heartstrings in just the right way. Later that morning she can be found simply strolling through the field, happily tending to the plants, and sometimes even kneeling down and singing softly to them.]

[On the backdrop of an airy room with wooden walls and wide windows, a woman with long pink hair and a welcoming smile raises the hand that's not holding her phone to wave at the screen.]

Hello everyone, and welcome as well to the people who've just arrived today. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Maria Cadenzavna Eve, and Barry and I were discussing an idea a few weeks ago that I thought I'd share with you all now that this spirit activity's been stirring up the last few days.

Anyone who enjoys music, or would just like something to relax themselves with after the last few days, I'd like to invite to a karaoke night on August 7th. You don't have to think yourself good at singing - just have fun and be passionate, and make it a good night for everyone. In my world, music is something that brings people together and heals hearts, so I hope we can do the same here with something as simple as this.

I'll be posting the address of the studio below. Feel free to arrive anytime between 5PM and midnight, whatever suits you and anyone you'd like to bring. And if you have any questions, please ask them here.

If you are professionally interested in music or performance, too, please look out for me and Barry on the night. We co-run Sparkle Motion, one of the talent agencies here, and we're always looking for new performers.

Thank you, and I hope to see you there.

[With a bow of the head and another wave, Maria ends the video. A few seconds later, the address of the karaoke studio is posted beneath it.]

kokuyoyo: (Woke up with a squirrel in my bed.)
[personal profile] kokuyoyo in [community profile] thefarshore
From: Chikusa Kakimoto
Date: August 6


-------------

[Chikusa actually meant to make this post a while ago, but.... Well. Things happened. Whatever. He's making it now.]

This is for the benefit of what new people who have arrived and all those who ignored Kairi and Yukine's warning here, but I'll repeat it all. It's apparently necessary.

There are three ways to get blight:
1. Touch a person that is blighted.
2. Touch an ayakashi.
3. Feeling guilt.

The first two can be washed away with holy water from a shrine or temple. The last can only be cleaned up reliably if you apologize for your guilt and repent to your god. If you don't and only continue to feel guilt, it will build up.

Shinki carrying too much blight become ayakashi. This should be enough of a deterrent but it's repeatedly been shown not to be.

In the event that a shinki doesn't repent and a god doesn't want to release them, an ablution can help. However, not only is it extremely painful for both shinki and god alike, it requires three separate shinki with extremely powerful borderlines and knowledge of the ablution incantation.

I have taken part in three ablutions in the last two months. I have no faith that people will do the sensible thing. So I'm offering myself for any future ablutions since an ayakashi on the loose in the Far Shore would be annoying. I guarantee that my borderline is reliable and that it won't matter how the targeted shinki reacts.

Just repay me for having to deal with such a troublesome and annoying thing.
