Event start: On the train

The clothes Dunleavy had mentioned were simple light trousers, three plain t shirts in school colours, a warm jumper; again in school colours and a pair of walking boots. There was also a small rucksack so spare clothes and other belongings could be packed.

On the platform NPCs were loading what seemed to be tents, cooking stoves and sleeping bags into the hold. Those chosen were ushered onto the train and told to sit wherever they liked.

Once everyone had arrived the whistle sounded and for the first time in fourteen weeks the train set off in the opposite direction. Smoke whistled happily past the window as they began to go faster past meadows and trees.

Then, quite suddenly everyone began to feel very sleepy. "There is a story everyone knows..." It was that old dream again, lulling you in and you find your eyes dropping against your will...

When you wake up the train is slowing and the countryside looks different, mountainous, rougher; a little more wild.

"Attention everyone, the train is approaching it's final destination. Please be ready to leave the train in half an hour." As people shake off the last of the sleep this message continues.

Then it changes, "You will notice that some of your now possess a coloured exaclan glove on your chair, others will notice a coloured ring. Please put them on now. Your first task is to find your Player if you are a Weapon, or your Weapon if you are a Player. Find the person whose colour matches yours."

((The information post that has the colours and pairs is here!))

Shion opened his eyes sleepily from where he was curled on a chair next to Becca and Alex. The dream, the same words as when he arrived...

Shion blinked at the instructions and looked down spotting the silver ring. He put it on and looked around a little confused. "So I have to find a person with a silver glove..."

Asagi puts his gloved hand on Shion's shoulder, smiling a bit that it matched. He frowns a bit at Becca, actually feeling bad about having hurt her, and at least he doesn't try to hide that expression. "I will take good care of you, Shion."

Shion jumped at the hand on his shoulder and glared at the man behind him. He hadn't forgiven him for attacking Becca, he would never forgive him for attacking Becca and his eyes narrowed at the silver glove. "No. I don't want to be your Weapon."

Alex looked far more comfortable and natural in one of his red tees and his own sweatshirt. It was actually big enough that it would probably fit over the jumper too, if he wore it. He got on board and picked a seat, saving the ones next to him for Becca and Shion. This time he didn't actually mind being put to sleep with that story. It was a rather nice story, and the sort that he liked.

He raised his head off of Becca's shoulder, yawning as the announcement woke him up. Sitting next to Becca and Shion meant that when he woke he was both excited and disappointed. Becca was safe with him, but he hadn't been lucky enough to get Shion as well.

Shion looked at Becca's and Alex's matching glove and ring, glad that his friends were together but sad that he wasn't with them. "It looks like you are a team!"

"So we are," she said sadly, reaching out to give Shion a hug, grateful that she was the weapon this time. "It's so not fair you're not with us," she whined, but nonetheless she let him go again and pulled back, settling beside Alex again and putting her ring on.

Brittany lets out a wide yawn as she wakes up on the train and she rubs her eyes, looking around. It takes her a moment to completely register what that voice was even talking about. She's pretty new to this place and this is the first time she's been a player. Of course she's read the manual but it's still a little confusing to her.

She picks up the white glove though and puts it on, turning her hand over in front of her face with a grin. She can't help but start to hum Michael Jackson's 'Bad' under her breath. Oh right, she's supposed to be looking for someone isn't she?

"Um, hello? White? Anyone?"

"That would be me." Britannia answered, smothering a yawn as she straightened in her seat which was, coincidentally, behind Brittany's. In her hand was a white ring which she raised up for the other's inspection.

Not a face she recognized, sadly, which meant she was going to have to be more cautious than usual. Still, it could have been worse. (Or so she kept telling herself.) Rather than complain, the nation chose instead to stretch out her muscles before moving to her feet and adjusting her clothes. Once they were neatened to her liking, she then wove her way around the aisle until she was facing her new player.

"I'm Brittania."

Juri had hoped to see a bit of the city's surroundings on the train ride, or at least to get a bit of her reading done. But she'd been lulled to sleep just as she had on the way here—really, she shouldn't have been surprised.

Waking, she found the green ring on the seat beside her and slipped it on. So, she was to be a Weapon again. It still rankled, a little, but it hadn't been so bad the first time. Tolerable, at least.

She stood up and surveyed the other students in the train car. "Excuse me, have any of you got the green glove?"

Re: Green

He was really starting to get tired of this.

When Yuri had boarded the train, he'd intended to keep his eyes on the scenery, to see if he could figure out a little more about this place/world they'd been taken to. To see if he could learn anything that would help them when/if they escaped. Of course, by now he was coming to terms with the fact that their captors were determined to keep them in the dark as much as they possibly could.

One minute he was watching them pull out of the station and the next he was opening his eyes feeling groggy as all hell. Realizing what must've happened, he let out a low groan and rubbed at his face, feeling irritated. "How much sleep are these guys planning to give me?" He muttered, sitting upright to see what else had changed aside from the view.

The first thing, obviously, was the glove. Picking it up, he felt a small vestige of frustration wash through him before he was wryly smiling. At least he was a player this time.

And, as if on cue, someone was calling his color. "Hey, over here!" He answered, standing up and pulling his bag with him. It wasn't a familiar voice which surprised him. He'd assumed he was automatically paired with Flynn...

Cirno slowly woke up from her curled up position and looked around sleepily. She was wearing the At the announcement she rubbed at her eyes with her still bandaged hands and looked at the orange ring sitting there. She frowned and glanced to Yuka for a moment before taking the ring and looking about, slipping off of her seat reluctantly.

"I have orange!" Merlin turned to the voice he had heard, moving down the rows until he saw the winged girl, some kind of magical creature. He tilted his head and grinned showing the ring.

"Wait they said to look for a glove..."

That dream again... Yosuke thought sleepily as he was brought around by the sound of someone speaking over the PA system. Sitting up with a yawn and a grunt, the teen rubbed the back of his neck as it protested the position change and started glancing around, pausing only when he spotted a black glove on the seat next to him.

Picking it up, he turned it this way and that, wondering if this meant he was a player. It had to, right?

"Uh... anybody got black?"

Hikaru showed Yousuke his ring, clearly not particularly happy about something. He had just noticed that Kaoru had a different ring colour and had gone off on his own to find his player. He had just promised Kaoru that they wouldn't get separated again.

He looked around aware at once listening to the instructions. He looked at the glove; it was red. He stood up silently and walked down the aisle looking for the person whose Player he was.

Camping.

The very idea of it was unimaginable for Vane who had spent his life growing up in a world of concrete and glass. Where the existence of trees and grass were all synthetic- fake imitations for the purpose of aesthetics alone. To now be on a train sending him out to live in such conditions... the man sighed heavily and adjusted the scarf wrapped around his neck.

As he double checked his gear- thick parka, jeans, boots and a scarf- he once again had to squash a strong feeling of uneasiness. This gear felt so... inadequate for the elements. Mind, he had already come to the understanding that his world's circumstances were fairly unique and that the odds of being hit by a fatal storm while outside the city were low... but it didn't change the inherent fear inside his very core. Mother Nature could kill and, more often than not? She did not know mercy.

His clothes as properly fitted as he could make them, he then picked up the ring that had been left for him.

'Red,' he thought with mild bemusement, even as he checked his bag before getting to his feet. 'I might as well try to find my partner.'

Kaoru woke up and had an intense sensation of deja vu. Hadn't he just gotten off this same train yesterday and had the same interrupted dream? He was at least grateful he wasn't dreaming about being separated from Hikaru again.

Looking next to him, he finds his duffel and yellow ring. Looking around, he notices others putting rings or gloves on. He had know idea what it was for yet, as he had only just arrived. He only agreed to go because Hikaru seemed interested. Instead of putting on the ring like the others, he palms it and puts it in his pocket.

Stiffly standing, Kaoru starts his immediate investigation of the train looking for Hikaru. Seeing him standing near an unknown teen, he notices Hikaru has a ring on his finger. It's BLACK! Kaoru didn't like the looks of things. He didn't want to be separated from him, much less have to fight him if it came to that, as it seemed, based on stories he was told as well as from the assembly he had been escorted to, fighting was the "thing to do" around the schools.

Upset, Kaoru wandered down the train looking for the person with the Yellow glove. He was just scouting, not approaching. Every so often, though, Kaoru would glance back and check on the welfare of his brother, trying not to show an overabundance of emotion to the fact they weren't partnered.

Yuka thought her regular outfit was just fine for traveling, but she decided to compromise - she wore her own shirt and vest with the supplied pants. It was red and white, that ought to be good enough. She'd pack the other clothes in case of need.

When Yuka woke up, she noticed the blue glove on her seat. Obviously the colors had been picked by some method other than to coordinate with their attire.

And Cirno had orange... Well, it was inevitable that they wouldn't be together all the time. It should be fine.

As for herself, she looked around, but didn't see anyone else with blue...

He walked up the the person with the blue glove wearing his usual grin and dragging his duffle-bag behind him. While the colour blended a bit with the grey of his fur, the ring itself was rather odd to see around the 'finger' of Cheshire's paw.

Aria completely failed to wake up when the announcement went out over the PA concerning Weapons, Players, and Colors. Also, since she's asleep on a train, it's not uncommon to shift while sleeping, so her ring is obscured by her person.

It is not until everyone has left the train that Aria wakes up, very confusedly. She has no memory of the dream she just had, though it did seem familiar in some way. Looking down, she notices the duffel she packed earlier containing what was provided by the school's staff as well as the bag of sweets she purchased from the shop to share with Yuka. Now, where was Yuka? She knew Yuka was on this train at some point.

Aria started up, when she noticed a clinking noise on the floor. Peering down under the seats, Aria sees a blue ring rolling to a stop. Assuming someone must have dropped it or left it behind (not realizing herself was included in that list), Aria picked it up, dropped it in her duffel, and proceeded off the train.

Komachi hadn't even bothered changing clothes. It was kind of a drag that she was being called away like this.

And then she noticed the glove.

Gray was just about a perfect color for her. Macabre, but not really dark. The symbolism of it was lost on her, however, as she was more concerned with her thoughts of oh great, this is what the third time? and actually putting it on to either (a) look for her Weapon partner or (b) think about too much else.

It had been a long time since Sora had dressed like this. When you attended a boarding school, it was usually easier to just wear your uniform all the time, even when you weren't really required to. She had her doubts about the color scheme, but at least it was comfortable.

She was completely boggled by what she found after waking up. Gloves? Rings? Weird status changes? She didn't know what to make of it.

At least having a mark on the back of her hand was familiar, although the marking itself was a bit boring. (Says the girl used to a half dozen different ways of putting together a pair of 'V's... although she couldn't quite remember what one was for some reason.) She puled her shirt out a bit and looked down to see if there was a mark on her chest. Nothing. The marks might not work the same way here though...

For now, she supposed she'd just have to go along with things and see what she could learn. It wasn't just because this was starting to seem like fun, really!

She put on her ring and started looking around. Gloves and rings seemed to be split between sexes about evenly. And no one she saw was wearing a shirt cut low enough to see a symbol on their chest... Then she noticed the red-headed woman with the gray glove, and abandoned her observations to sit down next to her.

"Hi! I'm Sora. It looks like we're going to be partners!" She held up the hand with the ring. "Do you know which of us this makes the Player and which the Weapon?"
