Before you post your toplevel comment, please:
1. Check the first letter of your character's name as its written in our tags. A-M names comment here, and N-Z names go to the other post.
2. Make a note in your comment if anything especially triggering or graphic might show up in the Calibration. If you're not sure if something's worth noting or not, we suggest listing it anyway, just to err on the side of caution.
3. Put your character's name (it can be shortened or different from the tag, this time) in the subject of your comment. This will help visitors find you easily, and help us update the list below.
4. Post your comment! It's fine if everyone's Calibrations end up looking and reading very different from one another. As long as you're having fun and following our guidelines, you're good to go. :)
5. If you have any questions or concerns during Calibrations, you are welcome to send them towards the mod team at any time, as always.

    [personal profile] itstheirworld
    Who: Enid
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: Marsiva, and later the SS Vanquish
    When: right now

    Marsiva - action + network
    [Waking with a start in an instinctual panic that takes away from her normally pretty features, the first few minutes of this girl on the feed are nothing new. She jumps up quickly to the unfamiliar surroundings knowing in her gut this is wrong and feeling she has to find a way out, to run home before the person responsible came back. But more and more, as the seconds pass, it becomes clearer to her the situation goes beyond an average kidnapping. There device filming her is something she first ignores thinking what any person from her world would: it is non-functioning and there only as a reminder of what was. She's smart though and soon sees it is actually filming her. She can imagine a few reasons why, like ensuring she wasn't laying in wait to jump out and fight if they came back, but she pushes the reasons she comes up with to the back of her mind so they don't away from her concentration. She locates the communications device as she is supposed to.

    The panic on her features fade for forced calmness, courage. She stands there facing the screen, finding it in her to make a statement, before deciding to voice them to the world or whom ever was watching.]

    I don't know why you took me. [She pauses for a moment, taking a breathe in. Clearly she doesn't remember how it happened either by the small uncertain look on her face.] But if you just let me go, I promise I won't cause you any trouble. No one will come bother you after. Do we have a deal?

    SS Vanquish - action
    [What good is one surprise without another? Just when she thinks she is getting her bearings with where she was, Enid teleports to the bridge of another place she doesn't recognize at all. The SS Vanquish. With the confetti, the tune of music meant to be welcoming, and cupcakes somehow in hand, she freezes in place with a look of shock, without batting an eyelash at anyone that approuch.]

    geonomy: (☆ we'll be counting stars)
    [personal profile] geonomy
    Who: Clay Terran + You
    Broadcast: Yes!
    Action: On the Vanquish!
    When: Now!

    [It wasn't like it was hard to figure out; Clay contacts Apollo often, just to talk about everything and nothing. And today, he tried to do it again, only to get an error. He knows what it means, yet he tries again, again and again, until it really sinks in.

    He gives himself some time to scream into a pillow, you know, normal reaction to the knowledge that your best friend left, most likely for good, before picking up his comm again. Part of him thinks it'd be good to address via video, but he doesn't really trust himself to do it. After some debate, he decides to just text instead.]

    hey so uh

    if anybody knew a guy named apollo justice he went back to his world

    dont get me wrong its a good thing!! he really didnt like it here

    hes afraid of heights and u cant get any higher than space right

    lol he was practically becoming a hermit with how much he stayed on his ship

    so yeah

    its good

    hes apollo justice after all

    he'll be fine!!!!

    [Ugh, that sucked. But... whatever. After the loss of some other friends of his, and now Apollo, that's about the best he's got to give for today.]

    brainiest: (another missing harry face)
    [personal profile] brainiest
    Who: Hermione Granger and you!
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: Vanquish
    When: Today!

    [ The feed starts out with Hermione sitting on her bed, looking absolutely miserable. It's obvious that she hasn't slept, not really, and when she speaks her voice is quiet and, more than anything, sad. ]

    Cisco isn't here anymore. [ She's lost people before, but she never gets used to it. It's never fair, and it's not right. It's not right that you get to be this close to people and then they get taken away from you. ] I don't think he's the only one that's gone this time, but it's - I don't think it's my place to talk about anyone else.

    [ She's doing this because Cisco was her partner, after all. Her boyfriend. She'd been so happy.

    I'm not sure what's left in his lab, but - I didn't want to touch anything. I'm sorry for anyone that knew him, but... He's probably happier at home, so it's okay in the end.

    [ The feed cuts off, abruptly, because she didn't want to think about it anymore - it was easier to just turn it off and put the device to one side and pretend for a little while. ]

    [personal profile] goldkiss
    Who: Victor Nikiforov and OPEN
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: Marsiva's Hospitality Deck (common area)
    When: Shortly after he wakes up and has had time to explore a bit, so sometime in the middle of the "day"

    [The video shows a man wearing a black T-shirt and coat. He is smiling and seems to be happy and cheerful. He has the strap of a sports bag over his shoulder. One hand is to his face, a finger touching his lips.

    Despite having just woken up in the middle of space with no idea how he got here, he seems completely at ease.]

    I wish someone had told me I was going to be on television today. Honestly, I'm grateful that you took me on my way home from practice because it means I have my skates, but I would have dressed up for the occasion had I known. A nice suit perhaps? At least a decent sweater. [He hand moves down to grip the sports bag's strap.]

    I could look so much better given a little bit of notice. [Then he winks, and it's not clear if that's meant for anyone who is receiving this message, the much bigger audience they're told exists, or just because he likes winking.

    Then, after a moment, he gets to the true purpose of this message.]

    Oh, and if anyone has seen Yuuri Katsuki please let me know. He's Japanese, about 173 centimeters in height, has black hair and brown eyes, and wears glasses. Let him know that Victor is looking for him if you see him, hm?

    Who: A ~mysterious anonymous text post~ and you!
    Broadcast: Anonymous text
    Action: The Vanquish, if you can figure her out.
    When: Now!

    [Caster's bored, and she hasn't started a war in a while, so at some point when no one's looking too hard, an anonymous text post appears on the network:]

    Which are cuter, cats or dogs?

    Who: marian hawke & you!
    Broadcast: fleetwide text.
    Action: ss tourist.
    When: post-shuffle.

    [ Marian waits a few hours before she sends out the message and checks a couple of times to be absolutely sure. She'd love to say that it's fine, that they're home now, but it doesn't feel fine. Thedas is still royally screwed in so many different ways and Anders.... There is no way he would have returned absent his ghostly roommate.

    Ugh, this sucks. ]

    friends of adalwolfe hawke and anders
    i have some sad news you give you
    they are no longer on the fleet and have gone back to thedas
    so yeah


    [ The message ends there, though if someone tried to look for Hawke herself they'd find her aboard the Tourist in her own room for once. The door isn't locked, in fact it is partly ajar, and she sitting on her bed with Dog laying obnoxiously across her lap. ]
    evervigilante: (Is this how its gonna be)
    [personal profile] evervigilante
    Who: Yuri Lowell + You
    Broadcast: Video
    Action: SS Bishop
    When: RIGHT NOW

    I've been feeling a little left out with all you guys getting presents and fun rumors. Which is why I thought I'd add some of my own. Ahem.

    [ Yuri dramatically clears his throat. ]

    "Yuri's hair is insured for 1000 gald"

    "Yuri blew up a casino once."

    "Yuri's secret power is talking to bunnies."

    "Yuri wore a bikini once. And won a swimsuit competition."

    That should cover it. I guess now I have to do the requisite log off and hiding in my room in shame.

    If you want to visit, I'm at the Bishop. I'm in the mood for crepes.

    [personal profile] sylphid
    Who: Fie Claussell & You
    Broadcast: Yes, fleetwide
    Action: On the Wonderduck if you'd like
    When: April 9, mid-afternoon

    [Random rumors showing up on the network? You know the drill by now.]

    Allen, Fie, Zaveid, Theon, Shiro, Adalwolfe, Fenris, and Kaworu are all related and part of a secret family that must remain unknown to all outsiders. The white hair is the key...

    [A little while later, the lone female of the newly formed clan appears on the broadcast, green eyes blinking in mild puzzlement.]

    So... when's the next family reunion? We've got a lot of catching up to do if I haven't met over half of you. I can bring something. A casserole? Is that normal?

    [Humorous pondering aside, Fie does actually have a reason for the broadcast.]

    I wanted to know who's in charge of the gardens on the Iskaulit, or who I ask about helping out. Or if anyone is. Should I just start working there? [That's more words than she uses most of the time.]

    ... My name's Fie, if it matters.

    padadin: (41)
    [personal profile] padadin
    Who: Shiro and you
    Broadcast: Fleet-wide
    Action: SS Blameless
    When: Saturday morning

    [For the general public and the Blameless crew, this isn't going to be a surprise, but Shiro is awake pretty damn early. Well, at least for whatever counts as "early" in space. The feed starts at crazy o'clock with Shiro in the seating area, a warm cup of tea in his hands, an open crate next to him and a soft smile on his lips.

    What is he smiling at? The plushies on the table. Five lions of different colors and sizes, standing in a very specific order, even if most people probably won't get it and will think the line should be organized by size. And next to the lions, two small plushies: the cutest mice.]

    I kept hearing horror stories about these "drops", but this isn't so bad. I like them. Thanks to whoever send them. [Being nice to the public for the sake of his crew's ratings? You betcha. He takes a sip of his tea before asking to the camera.] Hey, Keith, how many red ones do you want?

    [Yeah, it's not a matter of if, bro is getting at least one. An idea hits Shiro then and he puts his cup down to start moving the lions around to make a pile, and it will look even weirder this time, because the big black one doesn't go to the bottom. No, he puts the blue and the yellow ones next to each other, then the red one on top of the blue one, green goes on yellow, and on top goes black...

    But Shiro pauses, frowning, when he notices a post-it note stuck to the lion's belly. He doesn't read it aloud, but text appears on the screen as his eyes skim it.]

    Shiro gets nightmares if he doesn't sleep with his lion.

    [Shiro tenses, obviously not liking the note at all, because yeah, half of it is true. And it's hitting him right now that some strangers out there know. Just like that, the feed is turned off - well, the video feed at least. Because Shiro keeps reading the messages afterwards, so of course they keep appearing on the screen, one for each plushie.]

    Shiro isn't his real name.
    Shiro burns water.
    Shiro and Keith haven't reached third base.
    Shiro sinks even in small lakes.
    Shiro can't grow a worthy mustache.
    Shiro's white bangs are a clip-in.

    [ the first thing that comes up is loud music. cisco is in his lab listening to music in full volume, working on what seems to be a pair of speakers as well as colorful tea bag holders when suddenly he stops, looking ahead, somewhat disoriented and then shouts, just above the music. ]

    Ok, the sooner we leave this stupid planet the better!!! before I will go all The Shining on the Atroma's sorry alien asses!!

    [ and a moment later, a text message. ]

    If you're going to check out the wreckage, be careful. Trust me, seeing the replay of what happened to the it when it went down isn't fun.

    I'm suffering from daymares, yo, the least you can do is make sure you know what you're doing down there.

    Who: Ignis Scientia
    Broadcast: Network Communication
    Action: Aboard the Marvisa
    When: On the evening of the 28th

    [When he'd stepped aboard the ship in Caem, he'd known that he'd be leaving behind everything he'd ever known for the unknown, but this? Not what he had in mind. The others are nowhere around—something that set off all of the panic buttons in his brain—and he is mostly definitely not in a water craft.

    The air is chilled, but there's no salty tang. He's warm and feels as if he's enveloped in a blanket. After a few moments of trying to get his bearings, he leaves what appears to be a bed in a...medical type room. A search of his person turns up his cellphone, his notebook, pen and... another communications device. He takes a few seconds to appraise it before opening to use the item.]

    Hello. I'm not sure whom I'm addressing, but my name is Ignis Scientia. As I appear to be new to this place and there are others here as well, I would like to know where I am and what is going on.

    [The look on his face says that if you waste his time, he will hang up on you.]

    Also, if anyone knows the whereabouts of Prompto Argentum, Gladiolus Amicitia or Noctis Caelum, I would appreciate being told.

    [personal profile] runawayprince
    Who: Noctis and YOU
    Broadcast: yes
    Action: aboard the Marsiva
    When: Now

    [The video opens up to show Noctis, looking slightly tousled and very cranky. Sure he can sleep anywhere but that wasn't a reason to have him wake up somewhere he doesn't know!!]

    Look - whoever's bright idea this was - it's not funny. If someone wants to point me in the direction of who brought me here I'd appreciate it.

    [He does seem awfully in a rush to get back. He's not happy about being here, clearly.]

    Otherwise, some other answers would be good right about now.

    [Fellow newbies can find him aboard the Marsiva, trying to find a way out of here. He doesn't get very far, but he's still stopping to examine various parts of the newbie accessible side areas of the ship. ]

    Who: Alphonse Elric and YOU
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: N/A
    When: March 19th

    [Alphonse is serious and all business when he clicks the feed on.]

    I'd like to offer my services to any exploration teams going down into the depths. My alchemy can be used to reshape metal, and the weapons sold in the shops here might be useful for whatever is lurking. I also have a Security augment, so if anybody needs some muscle to come along on their expeditions... I'm game.

    I just hope we can figure out what's going on. I'm working under the assumption that Atroma's going to move us onward soon, whether we want to go or not... and we'll have to leave these people behind, no matter what condition they're in.

    Who: Sansa Stark and YOU
    Broadcast: Y, fleetwide
    Action: Blue Fish
    When: Today

    Dear friends. [ some lies are kindly told. like this one, wherein she counts only a few souls in the fleet as friends but it's only polite to address the whole lot with warmth and generosity. especially when she's asking for help. and especially when there are lions in the tall grass. ]

    I need a recipe for baklava -- I do not think anyone eats it where I come from. But someone dear to me who has long since left the fleet used to bring baklava every week. And we would enjoy it together. I should like to have some again but the cook on this ship needs to know how it's made. Please -- I promise the information will go to good use, although some cooks must covet their kitchen's secrets.

    [ sansa approaches her broadcast with steel in her spine: hands folded in her lap; hair brushed until it shines. if there are enemies recently shuffled onto ships, then she must let them know she is comfortable here. she is protected. after surviving the raid, she realizes her days of hiding must be numbered.

    as an afterthought, she adds a bit of mercy. a gesture of peace for jeyne: ]
    Or if there are other recipes you have and want to share, you may do so. My good-sister is new to her duties and I think it would be a kindness to provide her with fresh dishes.

    [ ordinarily, in the evening, she would go to the garden on the iskaulit to 'pray' -- but with the news of recent arrivals, she's too skittish to leave the blue fish. instead, she stays on ship and prays in her quarters. sansa kneels on the floor and props her elbows on her mattress. as much as it's become an act (a performance!) she still feels compelled to go through the motions. it's like meditating. ]

    Who: Arthur Kirkland

    Action: Málum (Crowley's bar)
    When: Feb 15, evening

    [Luckily for the fleet, Arthur's decided to broadcast near the beginning of his evening, meaning he's still on his first glass and reasonably sober.]

    Would anyone be up for a bit of a trip down to the ring tomorrow? I've been hearing some nice things about the area and it might be nice to get outside for a day or two. Especially after how artificial everything was at the last place. And it's always better with company.

    [Takes another sip and sneezes, shaking his head. As he does... well, his control of his powers slips and a pair of wings pops out of his back, halo glowing over his head, and typical clothes swapped in a second to a matching white tunic. He doesn't notice until he picks up his glass for another sip and sees the reflection.]


    [Tosses back the rest of the glass and ends the broadcast. Going to need another one.]

    [ After a week of traveling and glitches, the Marsiva finally pulls into its newest destination. It seems they've wandered out of human space for now, and into a system dominated by the Co'kal. Luckily, there's still lots for people to do and see, when they aren't dealing with even more glitches, that is.

    In other words, it's a mingle!

    Who: Sokka and you!
    Broadcast: Fleetwide
    Action: SS Blue Fish
    When: Sunday 5th

    [Sokka keeps tabs on his crew a lot, but there's a few scant people outside of the Blue Fish he absolutely tried to check up on as and when he can. After the...weird hyperactivity effects he'd experienced wore off, he made to check up on exactly one of those people. And his search came up empty.

    So, he turns on the video, stepping out of one of the shuttles and heading through the hallways of the Blue Fish, heading to the bridge

    I'm not sure who she knew all that much, so I'm making this public in case anyone's missed it and gets worried about her.

    [He flops down into his captain's chair with a heavy sigh. This sucks.]

    Korra's gone. Home, hopefully. Which is probably a better thing for her. Important Avatar business and all that.

    [And then there was one. Again.]

    Hello, uh.. I feel like I used to be so much better at this.

    Alright, I was here, I don't know how long ago it was for all of you. For me it was years. But does anyone recall Lily Evans?

    I'm looking specifically for Tyrion Lannister and Captain Furiosa, or a pony named Cheese? If anyone knows them I'd really like to get back in touch with them. If they've gone home I'd like to know that too. Or anyone who has heard of Hogwarts, that's possibly a long shot though.
