Doing well, everyone~! Some news before I break into our new XANA attack.

William (amnesiac_memory) and Emily (s1lent_heart) are no longer in the rp, for reasons I would rather not address at this time. Questions concerning the matter can be addressed to me via email, per usual. Also, please re-familiarize yourself with the rules to this community. Unless you have a viable reason, anyone who does not post or contact me for a month or more will be removed from the rp. I apologize for that in advance, but it's important to keep things active!

Also, I know some of you will be participating in NaNoWriMo during the month of November. If you are, please email me and I will allow that to act as your "OMG I HAVE NO TIME TO RP!" excuse. ^_~

Now, to XANA!

To keep down on the time we spent in XANA logs, we're working the Lyoko thing like this. I give you a basic summation of what XANA is up to, and everyone has one week to comment and request some action from their character. For instance, I might post something for Sissi to say "I want to nearly die as a result of XANA-induced asphyxiation!", and Joan might post something for Odd like "I'll get shot by a Block and be the first one devirtualized!" From those comments, I will create a basic summary of whatever happened in Lyoko and post it in kadic_log. I may be able to take everyone's requests into account or I may not -- I'm going to be playing this one Dungeon Master style, so I will have a bunch of various-sided die on my desk each time I start compiling the XANA posts. The XANA action does not start until I have posted the compiled summary posts!

Ready? Here's what's going on:

With Halloween (and, for the French, la Toussaint) quickly approaching, Kadic is getting all decked out. The school has been doused in decorations, including paper mache ghosts and pumpkin balloons, and even the teachers are getting into the act -- Jim, for instance, has put together a Trick or Treating event within the school, and students will be allowed to wander the grounds past curfew. Other teachers have been plotting, too (although they aren't very good at keeping things secret), and they have plans to turn Kadic into a regular haunted house! It sounds pretty lame, to be honest, but the teachers... Well, they do what the can.

And, luckily (or unluckily), XANA is there to help.

XANA possesses all the pumpkin balloons and fills them with what can only be described as a toxin. It's airborne, and impossible to see or smell -- it just leaves a bitter taste on someone's tongue and a slightly oily feel to their skin. But the toxin is a bad, bad toxin -- over the course of one hour, it completely incapacitates the person. They lose the ability to speak, to see, to move... And, if it isn't stopped, it will even shut down their brain!

So, yes, the toxic pumpkins are all over the school -- indoors and out -- and once they become completely filled with the toxin, they burst, and it's released onto any hapless students, teachers, or extraneous people who happen to be close by.

Your turn. What will your character do during the XANA attack? You have until Saturday, November 4 to post a comment here and let me know! (Note: please keep in mind that I reserve the right to use or not use these suggestions, and that I will on occasion "take over" your character during the XANA log, for the sake of the action. Any complaints regarding that matter can be addressed to me via email.

Edit: the XANA toxin may or may not be able to make people high. Just a word of warning. Also, it does not wear off in Lyoko.

XANA wastes no time at all, does he? ^^

I figured Jeremie would be helping with the decorations until he notices the pumpkin balloons moving of their own accord. Finding out about the early effects from some of the other students, Jeremie tells them to get to the infirmary, contacts the others and makes his way toward the factory as fast as he can!

If you are amenable to this, here's what I'd like to have happen. Odd & Sissi are running through their lines (and bickering) while putting up the la Toussaint dance decorations. One of them starts to leak and --here's my favorite part--Odd starts to hallucinate. About whatever you'd like, really.

Someone finds him and drags him off to Lyoko, where he pulls off some ridiculous acrobatic-type stunts and is then devirtualized. Or not. Your choice.

Not quite sure what to have Yumi do, but here's an idea.

Yumi is at her house doing homework when she recieves a call from Jeremie saying that all the balloons at the school dance are filled with a horrible toxin. She leaves the house, despite her parent's protests, and gets to the school to get rid of the balloons by putting them all in a secluded place. [i.e.: The garden shed, perhaps? Minus the sharp, pointy tools, of course. ♥]

...I'm at a loss, here. Um...I'm assuming this stuff isn't happening during the actual Halloween event, judging by the others' comments.

I have this vague image of Ulrich getting in some martial arts practice in the gym before the Halloween event. The gym doors are open (for one reason or another, and since everyone decorating is going nuts with the balloons, one or two float into the gym. Ulrich ignores them. He starts feeling dizzy after a balloon near him accidently pops, so he starts to make his way to the infirmary and trips over someone who's already feeling the full effects.

Whoever it is, he helps get him/her and others to the infirmary until he hears from Jeremie or someone else.

The rest is up to you~
