TRIAL ROUND MINGLE

[You won’t remember dying. You won’t remember gasping for breath, or hitting the floor, or even the feeling of pain in the first place. But you will remember falling.

Darkness. Then faint muttering, then burning heat, all hitting you at once. Before you can even get used to it, your limitless descent is halted, like a car hitting the wall-- and yes, the sudden stop is just as shocking.

And once again, without explanation, you wake up in a bed, intact and seemingly very much alive. A bad dream, perhaps? No, that was very real.

Congratulations! You’re alive again... or so it seems. When you awake, a letter will be placed on your table with only a single stamp on it. Perhaps you should ask someone here who seems familiar with the place about what it is.

Once you leave your room and descend the stairs to leave the pagoda (and hopefully you’re on a reasonable floor and not... Floor 21... sorry), you’ll find some strange people ushering you to a room in the Courtyard. Strange, as in, they look like they’re trying to seem human and failing. You can resist, but as much as you punch and kick, you’ll end up in a quaint room where Meng Po is seated. There, she’ll brief you all about your new after-life on the island as you all fight for reincarnation. Yes, you are 100% dead, don’t you remember dying? ...You don’t? How about falling through Hell?

Well, anyway, you’re dead. Try not to feel too bad.

If you want to return to life, all you have to do is kill someone else-- yes, you can die again-- and get away with it! Easy peasy.

And if you don’t like that, you can try to forget about your predicament by visiting the many scenic locations you have access too. This isn’t so bad. Would you really mind spending the rest of eternity here? There's delicious food in the cafeteria, if you come at the designated times! And why not stop by the peace garden? Surely, such a beautiful place would never be stained in an act such as murder...

(P.S. If you want to mess with the lake, please put “MODS” in the comment title or drop a mention on Plurk! Head mod is going to take a flight back to Singapore as of this post and will get to everyone ASAP latest tomorrow morning. Sorry for the late post! Thank you for your patience!)]

XIAO BAI | NPC

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-17 02:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Xiao Bai is one of the most vocal Gardeners, so she's the one who will most likely give a response that isn't just 'yes', 'no', or a deadpan stare. The privilege to hold conversation has to be earned for employees, too!

Her chores include cleaning up the hallways or even your rooms, so don't be surprise if you open your room door and find her inside dusting the bed. She will also work at the cafeteria to get the tables set up as well as trim the plants that are around the area. She's a busy bee.

At one of the rare times that her schedule allows her time off, she'll be sitting in the Peach Garden, broom left lying in the grass, cheerfully eating a peach from her basket.

Where did that peach come from? It's also the only time she'll talk to people voluntarily other than scolding them for messing things up. ]


Want one?
sundiet: (Is that really justice)

[Yang... somewhat remember seeing this girl around. It usually take him a bit to memorise who is who at a new location. But he thinks he saw this girl around at the Pagoda. Just never gotten around to talk with her, because of his general... annoyance and unease at this entire situation.

He's at the Peach Garden, finding the beautiful area very... calming? A bit. And happened to see her there with a peach. He blinked at her question.
]

You don't mind giving me one? [Not that he objects to eating fruits... at least like this.]
soundspeachy: (spectating murders is entertainment i gu)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-17 02:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He's a little annoying when he messes things up, but at least he hasn't burned anything down yet. That's a brownie point. ]

Nope. Plenty more where it came from.

[ She holds out a new, untouched peach from her basket. ]
sundiet: (Come again?)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-17 03:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Look, you can't blame a guy like 'him' for making a mess. He's just... exploring!

He looks at the peach, before he reach out and accept it. He looks at it in his hands. Huh, it looks really nice and no blemishes at all. With a quick sniff, he can pick up on that nice, peachy scent. A moment later, he remembers something and looks at her.
]

Oh, thanks for this. [... Standing here like this while she's sitting down feels a bit awkward. So he just continues.] You don't mind... if I sit near you?
soundspeachy: (i don't like this job but what can you d)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-17 03:30 pm (UTC)(link)
[ A mess is a mess regardless of cause. ]

Go ahead. Well, as long as you don't come too close.

[ A lady needs her space... and she's engaged, thank you. ]
sundiet: (Sigh)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-18 12:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, got it.

[And he just... plop down onto the ground. No worries, he makes sure he didn't drop the peach or let it touch anywhere near the ground. He brings the peach to his mouth for a bite, savouring it slowly.

Mostly because he didn't know what else to say. Well, he knows he have questions. But would she know? Or he could ask someone else.
]

... Hey, can I you about something?
soundspeachy: (this is the 5th person who asked me)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-18 01:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Since he's not interfering with her personal space, she'll go on munching her own peach. ]

Sure.

gross

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-18 05:51 am (UTC)(link)
[ She's used to you, old hag.... so she'll just continue sitting and chomp on the peach in her hand. Slowly. With emphasis.

After she swallows her mouthful, she replies. ]

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-18 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Implying she cares?? Well, maybe she would care more if Meng Po had a better attitude. ]

There's a couple of weirdos in this batch, at least. I'd think they're hateable.

[personal profile] synchrownization 2017-04-18 01:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hans blinks when she asks if he wants a peach. He doesn't say no, either. What is this strange exotic fruit that probably isn't native to his Southern Isles.]

Oh, er...sure, but if we're dead, doesn't that mean we don't need to eat?
soundspeachy: (spectating murders is entertainment i gu)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-18 01:38 pm (UTC)(link)
You're dead, as in, your mortal body is dead. You get a new one here. [ Did this guy listen or was Meng Po slacking again... ] So you can starve.

[ Still want it? ]
synchrownization: MARRY YOU; bruno mars (♚ it's a beautiful night)

[personal profile] synchrownization 2017-04-18 01:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[Either Meng Po was slacking or Hans did not hear that over the sound of his thoughts of getting away with murder.

...and he probably hasn't been to the cafeteria yet. Dat cafeteria.

He reaches out a hand for the peach.]


All right. [A pause.] So, have you met everyone here? I mean personally.
soundspeachy: (this is the 5th person who asked me)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-18 02:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[ What a suspicious guy. But hey, he's pretty. ]

No. I'm an employee, it's not in my job description.

[ She's just here to clean up your corpses... ]
synchrownization: (♚ hey baby)

[personal profile] synchrownization 2017-04-20 07:41 am (UTC)(link)
[He tosses the peach in the air before catching it again.]

Just because it's not in your job description doesn't mean it's not allowed.
soundspeachy: (spectating murders is entertainment i gu)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-20 07:56 am (UTC)(link)
[ If only she wasn't experienced enough to be impressed... ]

So?

[ ??? ]
ladyporthos: (smile)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-19 03:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's a bit later in the week, and Nira is feeling a bit more subdued. Still, she smiles when she sees Xiao Bai holding out the peach.] Sure! [She grabs it and starts munching right away, juice dribbling down her chin.] Man, this is good! Tender and sweet, with just the right-ow! [She apparently bit down on the pit while talking.]
soundspeachy: (the blood is so hard to clean off tiles)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-20 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
Don't talk while you chew. Chew properly!

[ Look, she's just the underworld equivalent of harried retail employee... ]

You're pretty cheerful.
ladyporthos: (grin)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-20 06:40 am (UTC)(link)
[...well, she'll swallow before talking at least.] Yeah, I guess. I can finally run and jump as much as I should be able to, y'know? No more falling over after walking to the store for me!
soundspeachy: (spectating murders is entertainment i gu)

[personal profile] soundspeachy 2017-04-20 06:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oddly happy, this person. ]

Well, enjoy it while it lasts.
ladyporthos: (grin)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-20 06:52 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I will! [Don't worry, she'll come to a full realization about her situation on Tuesday and break down over it.] So, do you take care of the peach trees or something?
