    Katsu is not even touching Hinata at the moment (he was leaning on his shoulder earlier, though.) How did you get the idea he was crouching in his shoulder? ^_^'

    I mean, could he even do that? It sounds pretty bad for Hinata's shoulder.

    Yay, I noticed the mental picture didn't make any sense and don't really know where I got it, either. I just didn't notice it until I'd already shut my computer down for the night and went to sleep.

    I find myself wondering why Katsu isn't doing anything.

    Then I remember that he isn't exactly down to earth or any other planet in the solar system and everything makes sense*

    I am very very veeeery sorry for leaving you hanging. Thought I had posted already, guess it didn't go through... but that's just about what I said (though maybe without so much Kamina in his voice, but it was still powerful).

    There's acytually more differences than just the octave between the genders.

    So he may just sound differently girly.

    By the way, can Katsu follow them? He's kind of being all sad at being left behind with no Winter Wonderland.

    Oh, I know that. For example the main difference between Hinata's casual voice and the voice he uses while cross-dressing is not pitch, but the fact that he strives to tone down resonance and other effects typical to male voices.

    It's just that, in my mind, characters with same speech color sound similar. Of course there'd be differences, which I decided in Hinata's and Tsubasa's case would be that they speak in different pitches. (Suggesting their voices cover different octaves, with Tsubasa's probably reaching higher and Hinata's reaching lower.) The implication still is that Hinata sounds either particularly girly or Tsubasa particularly boyish, and since Hinata's practiced to sound even more girly, well... XD

    Well, it's not like he couldn't catch up with them.

    Not only is there someone available, but they've actually already responded; The cafe's owner (Yoshikawa Hitomi) greeted Avery when she entered. At this very moment she's hovering nearby, waiting to dispense delicious delicacies on demand.

    What sort of attack did you have in mind? Offhand, it's hard to think of an appropriate enemy which meets all the conditions you specified (elite/stupid enough to attack guarded, public area in broad daylight; Attack somehow predicted in advance, but without specifics). Then again, maybe that's just me. Does anyone else have any decent ideas which fit the template?

    I'm afraid to have to announce that I must start pulling out of Academy City ITP.

    I'm a college undergrad at the moment, and I've recently made the decision to try and apply for Law graduate schools. The process is an intensive one, I'm told--law schools are competitive, and there's also the LSATs. This means that I must start preparing for graduate school this upcoming semester, including studying for LSAT, looking at application essays, and bothering professors about recommendations, on top of keeping up with school work in a semester that's going to be tougher than any I've had so far.

    Pulling out of this game isn't a choice that I'm making lightly, or with any joy. I helped Callos start this game, and back in summer when we made it I was hoping to stick with it until the day it died...but as I've discovered this past year, my plans go to hell on a distressingly regular basis, not to mention the fact that I hadn't decided on law back in the summer. As painful as this choice is, however, it is one that I must make. Discussing the prospect of going to a law school with my parents this winter break has shown me that I'm already a great deal behind.

    Any free time I have left will have to go to a personal project that I've planned for a long time now, one that I hope to make my life's work if (or even alongside) my prospective law career explodes on the metaphorical landing pad.

    I'm not going to pull out of this game immediately; I still have a week or two before school kicks in, and I'm going to try to wrap up the current (unfortunately fledgling) plotline ASAP, hopefully with enough hooks so that the rest of you can come up with something better. After that, I'll pass on any remaining characters I have to anyone who wishes to take them.

    I'm sorry I have to do this folks, but it must be done. I've simply run out of time for this game, and I have no right to stifle it with my continued presence.

    Hmm.. It's up to you. But he's moving into a more tight area, area without movement space. Also, in the Winter WOnderland, I guess he would be distracted by the huge amount of Music and people dancing around. Making a perfect ambush point :)

    So if someone attacks from behind, he would almost instantly be caught off guard. And the fact that he is far from his partner, making it hard for the partner to help.

    But all hopes that you do great in Law School, there's no way they won't let you in.

    Hello, found this recently and it looks very interesting. I wasn't planning to join in since I'm really busy with school right now, but I've had a character concept stuck in my head for the past few days and this seemed like the sort of place where it would be able to work. I'd like to run the idea past everyone and see what you think. I've read through the IC thread, and a bunch of the OOC threads, so I've got a fairly good idea of how it works, even if I'm not familiar with the setting itself beyond this.

    His power would be that his brain functions much faster than other people. His neurons fire about twice as fast as normal. The way I'm picturing it right now is that he's had this power for a long time, probably making him a Gem Stone, but it was never really realized because there's nothing externally obvious about it. It wasn't until he was getting an MRI for unrelated reasons (that I haven't quite determined yet) that anyone noticed this, and even then he wasn't immediately identified as an esper. It wasn't until his parents traveled to Academy City to get this checked out that it was discovered, and so they decided to take up permanent residence and enrole him in one of the local schools.

    The side effects of this power (aside from him simply being of genius level) include allowing him to read incredibly fast (upwards of 20,000 words per minute), gives him a near photographic memory, and makes him appear very perceptive (since his mind works so fast, he simply can analyse everything he sees in more detail). As a couple downsides, it means that his attention span appears very short as he runs though a topic to completion in his mind long before anyone else does, and he doesn't know how to turn it off. He can suffer from severe migrains due to the constant activity, and he needs a very high calorie diet to supply the neccesary energy to keep this up. The combination of these caused him to nearly be diagnosed with some variation of ADD, since he couldn't maintain focus in classes, though he did very well with tests and assignments.

    He lived in Japan before coming to Academy City, and has been advanced a few grades (basically, he should be at the beginning of middle school, but is instead in 3rd year). In an effort to keep himself destracted, he works out fairly often and looks for unusual people to hang around. The first gives him an outlet besides thinking, and the second basically keeps him on his toes. The more unusual a person is, the less likely it is for him to figure them out and lose interest.

    Basically, I see him as someone who is almost too smart. He can't stop thinking, so he looks for things to distract him from it and keep him from getting bored. He'd be quite fond of mysteries and complex stories, as something to hold his attention for a while as well.

    Wow, that was a lot more than I intended. Anyway, thoughts? I know there are people opposed to having too many Gem Stones, and I can change that aspect of it if you don't like it. It depends on if it would make sense for him to not be able to control his power if he'd developed it in the Powers Program.

    Interesting concept.

    Only problem I have is that Katsu already have that power as a side effect of his super-speed.

    As in, he can read incredibly fast, doesn't pay attention because he rarely goes at normal speed (even when he seems to he is probably at least at 101%) and overthinks stuff.

    His thinking usually ends in a lot of random guesses that are less likely than a tornado suddenly sprouting over Tokyo and dissapearing after less than two seconds, though.

    Hmm, yeah, it didn't occur to me that they might overlap in that way. I think there'd be some differences in how they're portrayed though, as my character would be much more controlled than Katsu. He's not very excitable or energetic the way Katsu is, instead he's just very focused and constantly changes what he's focused on. He's a little based of Mordin Solis from Mass Effect 2 in how he talks and acts.

    Not by default, no. They're not necessarily completely invisible, but someone would have to be watching carefully in order to see them.

    Also, while I really like the idea of watching this scene play out, it's been over a week since Rhydeble's last post. Are you content with waiting it out, or would you prefer to skip past it and get back into the action again?
