Who: Everybody smoochin or punchin.
What: wedding festivities and the apocolypse. Wow!
When: January 5-8th
Where: the Clocktower. The moon? The doors!!
Rating: P for Pow
They had to do it now, that's what they had said. Now, in front of everyone, here at the clocktower. The stage was set for a blast of a time, as gorgeous as it could be at the last minute. The festivities were bound to be a fantastic time, even with looming orange moon filling half the sky.
At least, it was a nice time before the nightmare of a face began to open its mouth in silent congratulations for the happy couple. (Or maybe that was a silent scream.)
It was a nice time before the masks rocketed out of their confines, smashing glass and walls and anything in their way. The door was made for them, and that was where they'd stay, nice and cozy as the apocalypse seemed to open above them.
The clock tower rang the time. As the echoes of the chimes rang out through the air, the clock above door began to move. It was counting down, and with it, the door slowly opened.
What to do, Smash Academy?

Who: Cyrus and whoever
What: STUDY TIME
Where: The one part of the library that isn't ruined
When: first week of January
So, all those books that Cyrus insisted on salvaging from the library before that giant creature stepped on it? They're lying around on the table in the study room that somehow managed to miss being hit by that huge foot. Granted, the windows and walls are cracked, but they're still standing and provide a shield from the cold.
Handbills advertising that people should go to that location are hung around the campus and town. Perhaps, the signs indicated, that research could lead to salvation.
And of course Cyrus was there. Though he was unstable and unfocused, he was forcing himself to follow through with his research.

Who: Knuckles, Wave
What: Wave has a few things she wants to get off her chest.
Where: The gym
When: November 30
Warnings: U for UST
Even with the moon ready to drop from the heavens, Wave and Knuckles still met for her training sessions. Bright and early, as if nothing was wrong. Except Wave didn't feel that way. No masks, no hope of entering the door she found, the moon about to crush them... They were all as good as dead. There was no point in continuing.
And yet she kept right on doing it. It was a point of consistency for her. Maybe that was enough to at least stop her from thinking too hard about the end and just giving in.
She changed into a pair of white shorts and a sports bra, ready for the day's training. At least Knuckles wasn't the worst company to keep in a time like this... He had a positive attitude that she admittedly enjoyed. And he was far more patient with her than she thought he was capable of. It was kinda nice.
Who: Sonic, Blaze, Marine, Rouge, Knux, Wave, aaaand others.
What: Surprise! It's Blaze's birthday.
Where: Various places.
When: Nov. 15th
Warnings: Mild language, light petting, birthday cake.
"Happy Birthday, Blaze!"
Sonic produced the roses he'd "rescued" from the shattered greenhouse almost immediately upon her opening the door to her room, sporting a huge grin along with them. Maybe one or two of the blossoms were bruised, but all in all they're looking better than his bouquets of the past.
Who: Flint and errybody
What: A bonfire!?
Where: Somewhere on campus
Warnings: Stuff on fire
Despite the moon looming in the sky and the campus in shambles, Flint insisted on keeping up some semblance of normalcy. So, in between the rubble, he raked the fall leaves from the campus grounds, gathering them all into a large pile in an empty clearing. There, now the grounds were... still mostly in ruins, but he could see the grass again.
As for what to do with the leaves? Well, nobody seemed much in the mood to jump in them, so he does the next best thing: sets them on fire!
Once the bonfire is roaring, He sits on the ground near it and just sort of. Contemplates.
Who: Shantae and Char
What: Hunting for MASK THIEVES
Where: Around the academy
When: November 16
Warnings: D for DARGONS
They were all running out of time. The last mask had been discovered, but the other three had gone missing, stolen from Gordon's lab during the halloween party. So now they had to recover the missing masks before disaster struck. Shantae had enough of sitting on the sidelines. She had to do something.
She set out into the woods around the academy. Perhaps some monster had snuck into the academy... After all, nobody there had anything to gain from taking the masks, not when they were the key to their salvation. But a rogue monster, that perhaps wanted to ensure their destruction... Well, they had all the reason needed to steal the masks, didn't they? Shantae had no idea. But it was better than doing nothing.
It was rare that she bothered to set out alone into the woods, and they looked far more intimidating up close, she quickly realized. She had to be on her guard. Who knows what might jump out at her...?

: Whatever tall rooftop managed to survive the ColossusWhen
: Wednesday, November 11
It felt like all hope was gone, or vanishing fast. The moon got closer to the ground every day, and even now it hung ominously in the sky. Time was running out. And Rock felt like perhaps this time, it was the end... He stood on the roof, watching the sky, hands clenching and unclenching as he tried to think of something, ANYTHING, he could do that would help. He was so distracted he wouldn't notice if anyone decided to come join him.
: Halloween Party!Where
The haunted ruins
What remains of the arenaWhen
: October 31Warnings
: S for SPOOPY
The academy may have been mostly in ruins. The moon may have been falling from the sky. People may have been feeling hopeless.
But life went on nonetheless. That was the point Daisy wanted to make when she busted her butt for the few days before Halloween, gathering up whatever supplies she could to make sure that she and her friends would have at least one night to enjoy themselves. Something to take their minds off of things for at least a little while, and raise everyone's spirits.
The arena projectors actually managed to work, despite flickering a bit, and Daisy was able to program a nice haunted house scene to hold the party in.
She grabbed some snacks from in town, some mood music, and made sure that everyone would have themselves a good time. Hopefully nothing bad would happen.

Who: Cyrus, Mesprit, and... her siblings!? Gasp!
What: Cyrus has Mesprit call to her brothers so he can snatch them up and do that Red Chain thing again.
' evil lair of good intentions laboratory with his extraction machine
When: Oct. 22nd
Warnings: C for Cyrus trying to cleanse the universe of shit by draining power from pokémon of feelings and mind and stuff. Bad things are bound to happen.
With the moon's impact on the planet looming, Mesprit had been quite anxious. She was afraid for the world and hadn't been this scared since... well, she couldn't remember, but she knew something bad had happened before. She missed her siblings, her family,... she wasn't sure what to do to make things better. But she'd had a volley of exchanges with Mister Man/Cyrus that hinted at resolution, so she did as he had asked: while she couldn't send out direct distress calls to her brothers, she could send a low-lying S.O.S. to other Psychic types and hope they reached them both. If Arceus heard it and came, too, naturally it would have been a nice surprise, but she knew it would be highly unlikely.
She sat on a mound of what used to be bricks forming her dorm room. With her best efforts, she lowered her head almost prayer-like, voicelessly emitting a slow, urgent feeling of fear and concern for one's siblings--a feeling only one of blood relation or high sensitivity to emotion would sense. Along with her feelings, she attempted to transmit an image of her broken school as an indication of what the problem was and where she could be found.
The effort had left her drained and unable to "listen" for any responses. (Whether she'd be able to receive any at this point in time would be debatable, what with the weird inability to leave the area, anyway.) Fatigued and in need of rest and protection, she flew to the building where Cyrus had arranged for her to meet him. She weakly knocked on his door with her tail.
"Mister Man... I called Uxie and Azelf for help! Are you home? Can you let me in?"
Who: Sonic, Knuckles, Blaze, Rouge, Marine, Rrrrrrrobotnik
What: Scouting Eggman's new digs
Where: Remember that Volcano that no one talks about? We're back there again.
When: The moon hangs low in the sky. It's daytime.
Warnings: Lava, dangerous robots, smartass commentary
"Welp, at least the lava's hardened since last time."
Sonic mused that to himself, as he kicked a fragment of pahoehoe off the cliff and looked up to the rim of the crater.
"I guess ol' Eggolodon couldn't resist the chance to build a base in a volcano."
A Mountain, Campus and You.What:
Watch your heads, cause someone's not watching their steps. There's destruction afoot.When:
All across campus.
As far as Sundays went, this one was pretty typical, despite the lingering blood moon that persisted well into the morning. If you disregarded that, you could certainly call it lovely. The air held the crisp kiss of autumn's chill, the breeze rustling the fire hued foliage of campus. Eventually the sun's golden rays chased away the moon, bringing with it the deep blue of the sky.
It was entirely possible to forget anything bizarre was happening on such a nice day. Monsters, earthquakes, pssht. Those didn't exist today.
At least not until the first rumble echoed off the edge of campus. And then the next. And the next. And the next. Each one closer, stronger, rattling everything that wasn't fixed in place. The more astute in their panic might have noticed that it was far too rhythmic in its shocks. It was like a heartbeat, or a particularly strong footstep down rickety stairs.
Or perhaps they just noticed that a huge foot had come crashing through the roof of whatever building they happened to be in. Probably a striking detail, that.
The mountains, it seemed, were out for a stroll.
beast was ambling without a care in the world. The school buildings it was walking over (and through) posed no issue for it. Clearly it was just enjoying the fine Sunday like anyone else would. The mountains it had apparently wandered down from must have looked too boring, or maybe that little wolf thing had been making too much of a racket.
Either way, it was here and it was peacefully walking directly through Smash Academy.

Where: THE MALL!
When: NOW! (September 20 - 26)
Warnings: S for SHOPPING
Sometimes... Sometimes people just needed things. Basic necessities, food, clothes, video games... Of course, after the big Angry Birds attack a few days ago, it was likely people needed to replace broken things too. (How did that even happen anyway...)
Whatever the reason, the mall was the place to be.

: ANGRY BIRDSWhere
: PROPERTY DAMAGE
It's a nice, breezy day; a welcome change from August's sweltering heat. Fall is on the way, and with it come migrating birds.Lots of birds.
Oh my dear sweet lord where are all these birds coming from.
Birds of all shapes and sizes. Some of them land harmlessly on the ground, others bonk into buildings, trees, bushes, you.
Some of them are exploding. You might wanna watch out for that. And hide the bacon, I hear they're not fond of pigs.
Who: Wave and Knuckles
What: Knuckles teaches Wave fighting techniques
Where: The gym
When: August 17, early morning
Warnings: E for EXERCISE
Wave was exceptionally confident in her skills and abilities. That fact was undeniable. She knew she was an exceptional rider, an exceptional mechanic, and a genius to boot. She could take on anything on her Gear.
Off her Gear, though...
A fateful trip to the floating island taught Wave that her close quarters combat skills were lacking. Knuckles had offered to train her, although at the time her wounded pride prevented her from accepting. Time and reflection had a way of changing one's mind about things. It may have been against her ego, but she took him up on the offer.
The weight room was sparsely occupied at 6 in the morning. Either the meatheads hadn't arrived, or they were about to. Either way, she felt so out of place there, waiting for Knuckles to arrive.
