Ok, I seem to always be contradicting myself. ^_^ Since, it seems that almost everyone is busy - rainfire_dancer is going to be gone for 11 days, caithion is moving and insanefriends will also be gone for several days.
Thus, I don't think anyone would mind if I implemented a semi-hiatus. Basically, all the character interactions will remain open and everyone can still post if they want but the deadline will be pushed FAR back and we'll just take things as they come. I also won't post any new information until August. If anyone is against this idea, please tell me and I see if I can find an alternative solution.
Besides that, everyone please enjoy your summer!
Police Investigator #8
It seems as though Tachibana-san and Mello-san are having difficulty contacting the suspects. Thus I've taken the liberty of e-mailing each of the suspects to meet at Sakura Pavilion Restaurant to uncover the real murderer. Though I don't know how many of them will attend, perhaps the need for closure will draw most of them there. I've contacted Tachibana-san and Mello-san and I hope they will attend as well, since I'm not looking forward to being surrounded by belligerent, weeping and all-around crazy Sohmas
[in other words - character interaction!]
Location: Sakura Pavilion Restaurant

I know how busy everyone is so I've extended the ending date to Wednesday, July 27. If anyone needs it to be extended any further just comment on this post, I'm not in any hurry though it would be nice to wrap things up. Also, what would be the best day for an all-character interaction for everyone?
Location: Hana Park
Tohru looks around the park for a familiar figure but is unsuccessful in her search. Sitting down at a nearby bench, she draws out a magazine ("Japanese Baby") and starts reading but is interrupted by the ringing of a cell phone.
"Yuki?" Tohru exclaims in surprise.
"I left a note for you along with a snack in the refrigerator. I'm taking a walk around the park."
"No, no, I'm fine by myself. Don't worry - I just needed some fresh air"
"Ok, I'll be back soon."
She hangs up and continues reading distractedly, scanning the park every so often as if searching for someone.

Letter from Tachibana Sakon to Honda Tohru-san
Forgive my insensitivity in contacting you in regards to this matter, but if at all possible, I'd like to speak with you in regards to Sohma Kyou's death. I understand how difficult this time is for you and know I have already caused you much trouble these past few days. However, I sincerely want to find the one who did this to Sohma Kyou-san in repayment for the kindnesses you offered me over the length of my stay, despite my intrusion at such a sensitive time for you and your companions.
I understand that it may be difficult as all those close to you have been so kind in protecting you from the troubles surrounding the investigation of his death and that you do not want to cause the family trouble, but those of us working on the case have been left in the dark in regards to the situation surrounding Sohma Kyou's demise. If you could spare just a little time today, please contact me and we can speak further of the matter. I would like to clear this matter up in order to prevent further trouble on your part.
Tachibana Sakon Current Mood: worried
Tachibana Sakon's Post-Lunch Meeting Notes
While I'm not quite certain how productive the lunch meeting was, we were able to decide just how the suspects would be split up for investigation. I am not certain I fully trust the investigation abilities of the detective Mello-san, I can only hope his eccentricities and fascination with Sohma Shigure-san do not make the investigation any more difficult for the police detective and myself. I was able to gain the responsibility of two of what I believe may be the easiest suspects to talk with... along with the most difficult two. I hope to speak with Tohru-san and Momiji-san first and then attempt to use my family's name to arrange speaking time, no matter how small with the clan head and his physician aide. I fear if I speak with Sohma Akito-san first, he may forbid the others from speaking with me or, even worse, contact my family and trouble my grandfather with my actions. Current Mood: worried
I'm back, so let's resume this RPG. I'm sure everyone's about ready to find out whodunit, so let's put the ending date at 7/23/05, which is when the final detective reports regarding their conclusions will be due.
We have a new role-player as Kagura - shanaofthemoon will be taking over that part.
Detectives will have to arrange one-on-one interrogations on their own,though at least one more all character interaction will be set up during the week.
The suspect interaction (Sohma clan meeting) will still be open for several days, since it was interrupted midway.
Have fun and enjoy!

Kagura's thoughts during the meeting
[Italics are thoughts]
The girl dressed in black contiuned to kneel on the ground, staring at
her dress. Her orange cat purse was left outside, as she didn't think
Akito would allow it. He hated that cat, that's for sure. He was
that Kyou died. She certainly wasn't.
Maybe Yuki too, but it was certainly not unexpected.
I wonder who the culprit is. I dislike being with Akito...He
makes me nervous, and his malicious smile makes it even that much
worse. I kind of feel bad for Hatori-san, having to put up with
that...thing constantly. Not to mention he sometimes
might have to touch Akito. Just thinking about that makes me want to
hurl. Shigure-san always seem to be thrown into the mix too. Does he
like Akito? Who could, though? I wonder after that incident, did
Hatori-san ever feel the same way toward Akito?
I don't even recall the last time we all had a gathering like this,
except maybe at New Years. During New Years, it's pretty much become a
mandatory thing to return to the main house though. Especially if it's
your year to preform. I know Akito wants to find out who killed
Kyou-kun, I do too...But I feel like something's wrong, like
something's missing. Maybe it's just me?
Sighing softly, the once strong girl's glance faded into the distance
to the walls behind the opposite side of the table. The paper sliding
doors and other decorations was all she concentrated on.

Detective, feel free to arrange interaction time with your assigned suspects to question them. If you have any questions about any of the details of the murder or background details that can be easily investigated, feel free to post them and answer will be given in response.
( Suspect AssignmentsCollapse )
According to the comments I've recieved, most everyone won't mind if I suspend this game while I'm gone, so that's what I am going to do. We'll pause beginning on July 4 and resume July 17.
However, keikain had the suggestion of starting another game during the two weeks that I'll be gone. If everyone wants to do that, and someone's willing to mod that, I think it'll be an excellent idea. If not, we can just continue from where we left off, and we still have about two days left, so let's just have fun ^_^
|Thursday, June 30th, 2005|
Now that the detectives have discussed things, it's also time for the suspects to talk about the case. What better occasion then when all of them have been called together by the clan head?
Participants: Sohma Akito, Sohma Shigure, Sohma Hatori, Sohma Yuki, Sohma Kagura, Sohma Momiji, Sohma Hatsuharu, Sohma Hiro, Sohma Kisa
Excused: Sohma Ayame (business trip), Sohma Isuzu/Rin (traveling), Sohma Ritsu (traveling abroad), Sohma Kureno (material arts forum in Hokkaido)
Location: Sohma Clan Main House
Journal entry of Yuki (pre-meeting)
Damn Akito. He just loves to toy with people's lives. He KNOWS that I would never go anywhere near his revolting house if he didn't bring Tohru into this. But now the fact that he wants Tohru to come worries me. Perhaps he suspects her of being the murderer? I really doubt he's put much of what little healthy energy he has into this at all, but I wouldn't put it past him to use this event as a way to keep Tohru and me apart.
The funeral went pretty much as I expected. Tohru couldn't stop crying, the police invited themselves in, Akito got pissed and I was worthless as far as helping Tohru. And there was a young boy who seemed to think he ruled the world. He was too confidant, but at least he didn't act like Nii-san. If he had, I don't think I could have handled that.
I just have this feeling Akito will start some stupid argument about this. I know I always said I'd hate the cat even after we were both buried, but i think Akito likes to twist everything. It makes me mad that he's using Kyou's death for his own needs. For now, I'll keep a lid on all of this. I refuse to let those muddy feelings overwhelm me. Besides, I cannot afford to worry Tohru anymore. She is still suffering and I want her to smile again.
If not even she can smile, there is no hope for the rest of us.
Detectives' Lunch Meeting
Detective interaction time! Detective can share their thoughts on the case, who they think the murderer is, the plan of action for interrogation, and much more!
Detectives: Investigator #8, Mello, Sakon
Location: A local restaurant
A suspect interaction will be held later today (the Juunishi meeting with Akito)
Letter from Sohma Akito to Sohma Yuki
I will be most displeased if you are not at the meeting tonight. Remember that you need my consent to marry that little Honda Tohru of yours. If you are at the meeting, without Honda-san, I believe that that news of your pending matrimony will be received with much more happiness than if you were not.
Speaking of Honda-san, I've noticed that she is appearing most unhealthy lately. Though Hatori would, of course, report any problems that he knew she had, I believe that he is not aware of what is ailing her. Thus, I command that you bring her tomorrow for an examination by Hatori.
Letter from Sohma Akito to All the Juunishi
I am most displeased at the spectacle made at the cat's funeral. I have instructed that investigations be put off and that no member of the police should approach any Sohma member. The investigation posed a major threat to the security of the Sohma clan and the Juunishi curse. The death of the cat is of little consequence, the secret of the Juunishi must be protected at all costs. Thus, any member of the Juunishi found collaborating with any investigative entity will be dealt will most severely.
I wish to meet with all my Juunishi tonight to further discuss this matter. Be prepared to meet at the Main House at 7:00. No outsiders will be allowed.

Momiji's letter to Hatori
I'm not stupid you know. I think I know what's wrong with Tohru but could someone, (you!) just help me out. No one wants to tell me anything directly! I'm not such a little kid anymore you know!
All the servants at the main house are whispering about her. I really want to find the one who's been spreading nasty rumors that she killed him. We all know she could never have killed him.
Anyways, I just wanted you to know Haa-san, I'm going to find out one way or another. If I know what's the real problem for sure, I can help her. Don't you want me to help? You know I can make her cheer up. (^.^)Besides, wouldn't you rather have me hear it from you than Akito-san?
God knows Yuki isn't letting anyone talk to her directly. Well, just you, Hana-chan and Uo-chan. Why not me too?! I worry! Das ist keine Art!
OOC: Mod Post
I have a major problem. I will be going to Chicago July 4-18 for a medical forum and from what I know currently, I won't have any Internet access at all. This means I won't be able to moderate this RPG. Currently I can think of two options: I can either pause this RPG until I get back (which I feel would be unfair for everyone else) or I can have someone mod while I'm gone and finish the current RPG, and then when I get back, I'll start another one in a different fandom (since each RPG is only supposed to be two weeks long, this might be a little longer because of it's the first one).
What option would everyone prefer, and if the second option is preferred would anyone be interested in being an alternate mod? (I'm asking the suspects role-player mainly so that the detective role-player can still figure out the mystery)
Also, could everyone please tell me what times are best for character interactions (I'm sorry caithion ) so I can set up a better time next time; I'm planning one tomorrow, btw. Here's the link to a time converter http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html so just select city closest to you and convert it to New York, USA time. It'll be really helpful if everyone did this so the most convenient time can be selected.
It's also not too late for applications, so please feel free to ask your friends to join. The more fandoms, the better ^_^

Sohma Shigure's Diary
The funeral was a disaster. It was just the kind of affair Kyou would have hated the most, and Ayame wasn't even able to make it because of some business trip to China that he's been on for a whole month. I don't think the news has even reached him yet...
I picked out at least one detective, and a couple other suspicious people. One was a kid who kept staring at me in the strangest way. I kept trying to sidle over unobtrusively, but someone always got in my way. I think Akito's trying to keep me from talking to anyone. What does he think I'm going to do? Start up a conversation about how much Kyou hate
ed leak soup? Why not expend some of that energy protecting the kids who needed it the most? He didn't lift a finger to help Tohru today, which is expected. But he usually takes a lot of pleasure in helping out his favorite
Editor's coming over today for the manuscript. But she'll never find this
hiding place. She'll definitely owe me a dinner this time.

Letter From Police Investigator #8
Dear Tachibana Sakon,
It was a great pleasure meeting you today. You are far too modest, I've discovered that your proficiency at solving murder cases is only overshadowed by your expertise at puppets. That is why I'd like to humbly beg a favor of you and ask you to investigate the murder of Sohma Kyou. As a police officer, I no longer have any jurisdiction over the case and so am unable to do anything. However, my partner Mello may be of some help as he is from a private agency. Since there are so many people to be questioned I feel it will be to your benefit to divide up the suspects. Please contact me when you have considered this information.

Police Investigator #8
Case Notes- M: Sohma, K
As soon as I got back to the station, I was called into the chief's office. After being reprimanded from half an hour I was told that I was being taken off the case. Apparently Sohma Akito had called to complain and had demanded that the police cease their investigation. Since Mello is from a private agency, Sohma Akito has no control over his actions, therefore he will still be able to investigate. However, I now have no jurisdiction over this case, and apparently I am also not able to have contact with any members of the Sohma family.
There is good new however. It seems that the man that I met at the funeral, Tachibana Sakon, is not just a famous puppeteer, he is also renowned for his part in solving several murder mysteries. If I can enlist his help, then along with Mello, there will be two people who can still investigate the case. I may not be able to do anything currently but I see that this case reaches a conclusion.
Current Mood: aggravated
Sakon's Agenda Pad
Although I had intended to perhaps ascertain more information in regards to the young Sohma's death, I find myself leaving the funeral with little more questions than answers. The only points of progress I made were making the acquaintance of the police investigator on the case(who, luckily, knew of my aunt Kaoruko). I must make sure to tell Kaoruko of this. She will be proud that her name was recognized so far from her home district. I hope to make contact with the investigator soon, perhaps she was able to garner further information than I was today.
I am hopeful of the help that Sohma Momiji-san might provide. He seems generally concerned about the young Honda-san's welfare. Unfortunately the largest barrier to the case is the young clan-leader, Sohma Akito-san of whom Ukon has taken an intense dislike of. I had hoped perhaps the previous rapport between our families could provide some aid in discovering the perpetrator of this atrocity, but Sohma Akito-san seems to think otherwise. Although I'd like to respect his wishes, I also can't help but want to repay the family for their kindnesses, especially the young Honda-san who has done so much for me in my short stay. Current Mood: frustrated
