THE TRIAL ROUND... TRIAL... YEAH I SHOULD'VE CHOSEN ANOTHER NAME.

[On Saturday morning, the gates of the courthouse fly open.

All character will be ushered-- or forcibly dragged, if it comes to that-- the the Courthouse by the various gardeners. The interior of the courthouse is spacious enough for any amount of vigorous discussion, whatever that may be. Who knows what's on the second floor and beyond.

Meng Po sits above the chairs, overseeing everyone below.]


Today, you have all been brought here to find the one who murdered Cagliostro. Once you have come to a decision over who is guilty, you will cast votes on who you believe is the murderer. If the majority votes correctly, the murderer is condemned to Hell, and you will all be one step closer to reincarnation. If they are not found, they will be reincarnated instead, and whoever else is voted in their place as the murderer will be scapegoated. The murderer's sins will be falsely imprinted on them, condemning the scapegoat to Hell.

Should you correctly identify the murderer, there will be a second round of voting: the mercy vote, or the exoneration vote. If you believe the murderer deserves to be reincarnated or the victim deserved to die for any reason, you can vote for exoneration, and the murderer will be reincarnated if the majority votes for it. However, I am not responsible for what happens afterwards to the rest of you.

[...That's... okay, sure.]

Without further ado: the court is in session.

[Do your worst.]

[So they're really doing this.]

So I take it all of us saw the note, right? Well, there's one crumbled note near the courtyard, between there and the pagoda. Someone obviously read that one note, probably because she made a lot of the same notes.

[A pause.]

So... the killer found out where she was by reading them?
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 02:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Probably...I wonder why they dropped it. Maybe when they actually saw her?
sundiet: (I am not a puppy)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe... If they saw her, they probably didn't need it anymore. Or they dropped by accident... because they're in a rush or running after her?
ladyporthos: (confusion)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 03:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I guess if she was planning a trap...maybe they were attacked by her?
sundiet: (Come again?)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Might be. She attacked them first at the pagoda area, and they running towards the lake?

[personal profile] 774 2017-04-22 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[....Man, something about this rubs him the wrong way.]

Got to be. Someone her size running out to the lake, alone at night? It doesn't get easier than that. It's like an invitation. "Please help look after me", more like "please come try to drown me~".
sundiet: (Come again?)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:25 pm (UTC)(link)
So you're suggesting... she bait them on? By pretending to be an easy target?

[For what reason? He can think of a few, which... doesn't lead to a good picture.]
774: (5)

[personal profile] 774 2017-04-22 03:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Wasn't, but that cutesy talk was such an act. Maybe that's exactly what happened.
sundiet: (What do you mean)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
She acted like that and managed to fool someone here... That someone went after her, where she's probably waiting with that branch. No idea if they met at the pagoda or at the lake, but they met at some point...

[The scenario is slowly building inside his head.]
ladyporthos: (glare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 03:40 pm (UTC)(link)
And she planned to use that branch as a weapon...or maybe she wanted to trip someone with it? [That's a thought that has been going around her head since she saw how long it was.]

[ shit...they're really doing this. ]

Wait- she made multiple of the same notes? Did she send them out to anyone?
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 03:44 pm (UTC)(link)
I got one as well.
unfashionable: (neku8)

[personal profile] unfashionable 2017-04-22 03:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Huh. Guess she was really desperate...
Edited (i realized this implied she already knew neku got one oops) 2017-04-22 15:56 (UTC)
shikiori_no_hane: (- eh?)

[personal profile] shikiori_no_hane 2017-04-22 03:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Yep, apparently so. She must've really wanted someone to show up.

Looks like it worked just a little too well for her.
unfashionable: (neku8)

[personal profile] unfashionable 2017-04-22 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
...The perfect bait, except it backfired on her. Hard.
sundiet: (I am not a puppy)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Unless someone else made them instead, seems like it? Because they sure know how to mimic her... style.

I found a note outside of my room's door. [A beat.] On the 5th floor, in case anyone wants to know.

[A FAIR BIT OF A DISTANCE BETWEEN 17TH AND 5TH, BTW.]
unfashionable: (neku3)

[personal profile] unfashionable 2017-04-22 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't think anyone knew Cagliostro well enough to mimic her like that.
sundiet: (Is that really justice)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
We can cross that "what if" out, in that case. Unless someone else have a better idea, it's looking like Cagliostro made all those notes.
unfashionable: (neku8)

[personal profile] unfashionable 2017-04-22 04:12 pm (UTC)(link)
...Because she wanted to strike first.

[Okay, he's glad it wasn't just him.]

Our rooms are locked up tight. If you think you're being chased, why the hell would you leave the safest place in the garden and head for the most remote?

[That's, like...that's not even something you have to be taught, that's just obvious self-preservation skills.]
unfashionable: (neku1)

[personal profile] unfashionable 2017-04-22 03:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Because it was a trap.

[ going off of what the others have said...neku sounds more annoyed, now. ]

She chose a remote location so she could get away with murdering whoever came out to "save" her.

[Nanashi's expression doesn't really change, but he's been wearing suspicion and irritation since this began.]

Once it was over, she could just pick the notes back up and there wouldn't be a trace of the plan.

If you're being sarcastic, now's seriously not the time.

[personal profile] keepcomposed 2017-04-24 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
Is that what you think? Hee... Interesting. [ Strange person that he is, his eyes are locked on Neku as he smiles. ]

Does that mean you don't want my compliments? That hurts.
