Setting: Maids' Hallway
Time: Very early Night 003, dusk
Summary: This motley crew discovers that they are locked out of any and all rooms.
Warnings: Holy shit, this thread is crowded. Possible foul tempers ahoy!
While the days Zetsu had spent locked inside the Maids' Quarters weren't exactly pleasant, they hadn't proven themselves to be horrible, either. Zetsu had eaten as lightly as he could manage--which, considering his background, was sparing indeed--and had spent a fair amount of time just sleeping, doing his best to conserve his energy when not being up and about, talking to people he already knew or meeting new ones. (Mewtwo came to mind readily, noteworthy in that he was summoned to mind immediately as a person, rather than a Pokémon or creature of any sort, fantastic though he looked.) He was not, however, looking forward to nightfall--if this continued on the entire night, they might really be in trouble. Sure, they had water, and that was important.... but food? Any stores they might have would run out if everyone shared what they had, considering how many people were here. How many people had brought in food besides himself and Nataku, anyway?
Either way, they would have to figure something out later. Zetsu let the bathroom door swing shut behind him as he turned to head back to his room, stopped in his tracks by a sudden, ominous click. He whirled to try the knob again, finding that it did nothing but rattle; he was locked out. Biting back a curse, Zetsu strode back to his own room, testing that door as well--nothing. Locked too. Dammit! "What the hell?" He took a good look around, seeing suddenly that every door in the little hall stood shut--this did not bode well at all. If they were all locked after they had shut....
This did not bode well at all. Food was one thing to lack, (and any other amenities were little more than luxuries, really) but water? The lot of them couldn't last much longer than three days, four at most without that. It looked like the house had finally gotten serious.... What were they supposed to do now?
((OOC: OKAY GUYS. This is how it works. Everybody is going to reply ONLY TO THIS POST to begin with, UNLESS your character is responding specifically to another character, rather than to events in general. Once we've all gotten in maybe 1-2 rounds that way, our characters will probably start breaking off into separate little conversations of their own with each other. When that happens, please reply ONLY TO THOSE OTHER CHARACTERS. This will cause individual, miniature threads within this single thread to collapse, allowing for semi-separate conversations with THEIR OWN POSTING ORDER involving only the characters in that conversation. This should help the thread move more quickly. However, because they're all in a cramped space together, none of this is exactly private, right? Therefore people can and probably will overhear each other. If a character feels the need to chime in on anyone else's conversation, please do so IN THAT CONVERSATION'S THREAD. That way, you'll be incorporated into their posting order for only as long as your character is participating in that conversation, if they don't physically go over there and abandon their old one, in which case you would be exiting the previous conversation you were in.
I know that's insanely complicated, but it's the best chance we've got of actually finishing this sucker. Sorry for the bolding and caps, but I wanted to highlight the important points of that tl;dr wall o' text. Go ahead and fire off any questions to me if you have them!))
