Hello Holly Heights! You may have recalled me posting something earlier this week of signing up for a pranking event for April Fool's!

Below is the list! For simplicity, I've paired up one victim per prankster.

Prankster > Victim
Youichi Kuramochi > Yoh Adachi
Ryousuke Kominato > Sugane Tachibana
Yoh Adachi > Kazuya Miyuki
Hayato Gokudera > Satoru Furuya
Toph Beifong > Katsura Kotarou
Momotarou Mikoshiba > Yukihina
Katsura Kotarou > Youichi Kuramochi
Rahzel Anadis > Hajime Ichinose
Rin Hoshizora > Eijun Sawamura
Eijun Sawamura > Chiyo Sakura
O.D. > Ren Mihashi
Kazuya Miyuki > Rin Hoshizora
Sangaku Manami > Hayato Gokudera
O.D. > Gintoki Sakata
Youichi Kuramochi > Shouyou Hinata

As a side note, I mentioned 26th is when the log will go up in the previous post but that was an error on my part and instead will go up at the end 31st of this month. That way you can have some time to do any planning during the time!

Feel free to use this post to plan out oocly how you'd like to do the pranking stuff. If you haven't signed up already, I can try to pair up people as they come in, just head over to this post!

Hello Holly Heights! Things have been quiet due to obvious reasons, and I do understand people are starting to wrap things up (maybe?) to prepare for the game closing. Regardless, I thought it'd be nice to have some silly little event with the upcoming April Fool's holiday in a couple weeks. I know there's the Easter stuff before that, but it's a bit too close to do anything for that, isn't it?

April Fool's: Pranking event! This is a lighthearted sillies to prank on your friends or getting back on your enemies...for doing whatever they did (or didn't) do.

It will be a simple event, where you sign your dude up to either be the prankster, be pranked on, or both! The sign ups will be in this post as comment threads. If you can comment in the corresponding threads with the character name on the subject line, I will take the list and generate a RNG’d pair!

The sign ups will be open for a week, starting from today (3/19) to next Saturday (3/26). At the end of the day on the 26th (evening PST), I will throw up an open log for those who’d like to log it, or feel free to thread it out in mailboxes, whichever is easier for you!

OOC Plotting post will happen after the sign ups are closed and the list is generated! As a side note, pranksters get all reign on what kind of props/items to use to prank on the victim, just make sure the other party is alright with it!

If you're looking for IC reasons... Maybe Kuramochi roped you into pranking on someone? Maybe you've seen him with a bag of goods to use for April Fool's and decided to ask him about it. Or you just wanted to. Your choice!

Reminder to please be considerate when pranking, and ask the player of the victim if they're alright with your idea beforehand if you're unsure. This is for having fun mostly, so it'd be great to keep it that way!

For the record, this is a player-run event. Iiiif it’s not okay, then please let me know......

Edit: if there are any opt outs you'd like to mention, please PM this account and I will roll as accordingly! <3

good morning, holly heights! i'm jen and i'm gonna be that one awkward person that slides in at the last minute just to be a nuisance. :) for the most relevant bits, i've apped in terufumi sugimoto from yowamushi pedal! he's an experienced cyclist, so if anyone is interested in riding bikes clearly this is your guy. basically a loudmouth he comes from the second inter-high in the series, which for those unfamiliar is a time of tears and anguish for everyone. sports anime is basically evil. his app is in his journal, so if ya'll want to know more just swing on by that way. oh, and he's gonna be roomed in 1421.

if anyone wants to get in contact with me, i'm [plurk.com profile] hypershinken! looking forward to playing with everyone!!

10 March 2016 @ 01:17 pm
So I fully intended to stick with my full line-up until endgame.

Aaand that's not happening. I sort of jumped the gun and assumed I'd have it in me to keep four characters active for that much longer when really I think it's better for me to just take on what I know I can handle until May. So that means Natsuki and Maki are going home to their happy lives as idols. I'm just staring at their tags and not feeling it at all and I'd rather not make plans I most likely cannot keep. I apologize to my casts and my CR, you were all very wonderful and so good to me! ;_;

I'm sticking it out to the end with Makishima and Nishinoya though. Just lightening the load a bit.
26 February 2016 @ 08:04 pm

Activity Check will run through the last week of February. Instead of the typical AC this month, only a check in will be required. To stay in the game simply comment to the post with whatever you want. If you have more than one character though, please note the character names and journals in the comment.
19 February 2016 @ 12:32 pm
So I'm going on hiatus, and will mostly be gone from now until the 1st. So Badr, Ed, Jun, Yoh, and Yukihina will be on autopilot. If I promised anything with roses with you, please feel free to remind me, if I fail to get around to it.

Except there is one thing that I will do. The ice sculpting competition. Please feel free to sign up to it as contestants, judges, or volunteers! The post is over here!
19 February 2016 @ 12:58 am
Sooooo... yeah. I'm sorry to do this, especially when I was greeted so warmly by everyone, but clearly I am either not cut out for RP anymore, or... idk, maybe Ginko isn't someone i can play any longer. Something like that. I wish it were different because I had a lot of fun with the threads I managed to keep going, amd Holly seems like a fun game.

Shine on you crazy diamonds, and I hope you make the end game a good one.
19 February 2016 @ 04:51 pm
Hey all. Since there's a couple of people I don't have added on plurk, just leaving a hiatus notice here. I'm currently overseas for work stuff with limited internet access.

I'm away until the end of March, but I'll try my best to reply to ongoing stuff! Thank you for being patient with my lack of tags the past week.

As usual, I can be found at [plurk.com profile] ossu if you want to handwave stuff/plot/chat etc !
18 February 2016 @ 10:31 pm
Those of you on my plurk won't be surprised, but for those who aren't, I'll be taking the bar exam this year and I've begun to slowly lighten the RP load in preparation for review. And I think I've finally done all I can with Hisami in this game. So with this drop, I'm officially out of Holly Heights.

I'm so thankful to everyone who welcomed me and played with me, even way, way back when I first apped with Edgeworth. I didn't think I'd stick around a purely SOL game for a long, long time, yet here I am. It's been an amazing ride. 

Stay amazing, HH. <3 You'll always have a special place in my heart. 
17 February 2016 @ 02:22 am
hey hey, this is emma (o.d./miyuki/ennoshita/tsumugu) here just dropping a note that i'm officially off of hiatus and tags will be resuming as of tonight!

i intended to tag around with o.d. last week but finishing up moving stuff + schoolwork really ate my time. the house is essentially completely settled into, however, and i'm now back on track. sorry to anyone waiting on tags, feel free to drop anything that's too old. ♥
11 February 2016 @ 10:27 pm

So, as you may have heard, there will indeed be a Valentine's festival happening on the 14th! Invitations will be sent out with specifics to all characters, free shit is promised, etc.

There will be booths; you can own a booth. There will also be a fancy restaurant area for your more romantic date ideas. But what's the draw?

Assigned to the festival will be several cupids, consisting of character's selected ICly via random lottery (determined by sign up OOCly.) A cupid has a list of job features, which include.

➜ Coupling. This activity is the cupid's main prerogative. Upon receiving the notice that your character will be cupid, they'll also discover their mission: pair two people together. This will be a randomized assortment from the Taken List and there will be several couples matched up in hopes of getting one that is actually there. The cupid has equipment in order to get this job done: bow, rubber suction arrows with matching designs and colours, fluffy handcuffs. Success in handcuffing together the designated couple, a cupid will receive 500 dollars and a sash.

➜ Five extra sets of handcuffs are given to cupids in order to make their own couplings. Each couple they handcuff together will net them 100 dollars.

➜ But what if they want to make a chain of people? Assume each person is $50. If a cupid wants to literally handcuff together a love triangle, that's $150.

➜ Cupids also are given a small vial of honesty serum. For those pesky jitters that won't let you tell your soon-to-be (hopefully) special someone how you feel, this is Love Potion No. 9....or it can go horribly wrong, it's up to you.

The booths and concrete location details will be more detailed on the log for the festival. The amount of cupids will be no more than five or however many sign up. If more than 5 sign up, the cupids will be randomized and revealed on the log.

REMEMBER THAT YOUR CHARACTER WOULD HAVE TO ACCEPT DOING THIS so don't sign up a character that would say no, unless you're willing to still participate them in some kind of tom-foolery. If you want to sign up, simply comment here!

Hey guys, Frejr here bringing in my final character, and it's a sweetheart named Aiba Kaito from Himegoto - Juukyuusai no Seifuku. Okay, so they might not be all that much of a sweetheart, but.

Kaito was born as a boy, but identifies as a girl. However, they haven't properly come out yet, or fully accepted that that's just the way they are (which is why I use they instead of she in brackets and such). Because Kaito is aware their time as "passing" as a girl is limited, and is planning on stopping once they can't dress up without doing so anymore. Good thing that won't be a worry in this place, so Kaito is gonna go all in and not let anyone know they're physically a boy. This is Kaito's great fear; that people will react badly when they find out. They've only ever told one person, and another found out because they prioritized her safety more than their own.

Kaito will be living in 1448 with O.D., Jun and Kotori, and as always I'm at [plurk.com profile] fylgja 
10 February 2016 @ 08:39 pm

This event will require signups, randomization, and lotsa love.

This will also contain two parts! Or at least one overall part and one one day part. You'll see what I mean when you read it. Also copious amounts of copypasting.

Here's what will happen on the 14th:

➜ In honour of Valentines Day, everyone's favourite property owner is giving you a gift. Well, a gift that you can give. Each person will be awarded a bouquet, though a small one. Those that don't sign up will get a bouquet of holly. Those that do sign up will receive a bouquet of four roses.

➜ Each rose bouquet can contain a large variety of rose colours. Well, as big a variety four roses can contain. Of course, though, there's always a catch. Tied to the roses via a string are two small scrolls of paper. One we'll get to later and will also be attached to the holly bouquets. The one specifically assigned to the roses contains a message from the Landlord himself:

My gift to you requires a little work. Re-gift all these roses and you'll receive a little something from me. A familiar something.
-Your Landlord

This meaning that in order to get you need to give. AKA regain event.

➜ The true catch though is that due to popular demand and requests for something like this is that this will be another forced-adjustment meme. This means that the roses each do something different. Here are the types of roses and their effects:

RED stands for Romantic Love. This is your typical fall in love with the giver rose.

PURPLE stands for Erotic Love. You can probably guess what this one means. You can take this to an extreme but the basic effect will be attraction.

PINK stands for Friendship Love. You'll now be clingy and jealous towards the giver of this rose. No one can take your friend from you!

YELLOW (though the roses will be more yellow than this) stands for Flirtatious Love. Basically the cheesy pick up line rose.

WHITE (grey so you can see the text, but roses will be white) stands for Familial Love. You're protective of the giver of this rose. You might even act childish or overly familiar with them

BLUE stands for Admirative Love. The senpai noticed me rose. Asking for praise and attention is basically what this rose does.

LAVENDER stands for Annoyance. This is one of the two negative effect roses. What is this freak giving you a rose for?! Everything the giver does irritates you.

ORANGE stands for Hatred. Easily explained as you hate the fucking cocksucker that gave you this god damn rose.

When a resident gives another resident a rose, the colour of the rose given gives them the corresponding effect. For example, character A gives character B a red rose. Character B receives that effect while Character A does not.

➜ One character can give more than one rose to another character. Character A gives Character B a red AND a black rose. This would result in various mood swings from one effect to the other. An effect overload can take an extreme toll on the recipients psyche, though this will be resolved when the event is over, just that the character will be left with a hideous headache from emotional overload.

➜ A character can receive flowers from more than one person. Character A gives character B a red rose but Character C gives them a yellow rose! These effects only work on the people that the rose is received from. So Character C will feel loving towards A and flirtatious towards B, but normal towards everyone else.

➜ To spice things up, when you sign up for the event, simply fill out the form in response to the sign up thread. When you do that, an assortment of four roses will be given to your character. This means that you can get any four random colours, or maybe even two of the same one! Who knows. The form does give you some semblance of choice so that you can say I don't want x rose but please keep it to a minimum.

On the day the event is over with, those who have given out all their flowers will have their gifts delivered to their houses. There will be a post up, much like how the Christmas event went, that you will reply to when you've given up all your flowers. Filling out the form means you did it and you'll receive your regain.

Comments can be addressed in this thread and sign ups are, again, here. A post on the meme community will go up later today specifically for the valentines event with the purpose of players to figure out who each of their flowers will go to in order to get their regain.

Hello Holly Heights! This is Wolf bringing back the manliest country around, Turkey. He has his memories from his time here before so... yeah! He'll be staying in 1432 and as usual, you can find me on plurk over at [plurk.com profile] swordfaire
10 February 2016 @ 12:39 pm
Hello! This is Dem, returning for the third time with Katsura, who is still weird like you remember him.

Long story short, he's a samurai, a terrorist, a social activist and a closet furry who's probably been hit one the head too many times. He's generally polite and nice, but he won't think much of throwing you to the wolves if it serves to further his plans. If he has plans.

Last time here, he worked as a primary school teacher and had home ec (which really dubbed as bomb crafting) in the high school. I'll probably see to putting him back there or getting him into animal care of some sorts. He'll remember his previous visits, of course.

Happy to be back! Hit me up on [plurk.com profile] jigglyballs or this journal for plotting.

EDIT: oh yeah forgot to say which house he's at. Once again defiling #1469, mom is back! Also hello child I haven't met yet! Katsura is really into this whole pretend family thing. Like, really. He'll make you cute lunches and help you with homework. Except he can't cook very well. Hopefully there's no Diarrhea Incident in school this week!

09 February 2016 @ 11:27 pm

Hello, hh... Third time is a charm, right? Anyway! Liah here returning with England who will be in house #1447! Sorry to the unfortunate person living there at the moment.

I'm not sure how much of an intro I need to give here but he has all his memories from before, so if anyone wants to hit me up my plurk is [plurk.com profile] otp! ♥

And a boss, even.

Yoh Adachi comes from the manga Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (also known as Flunk Punk Rumble) and he's the leader of all the delinquents at the delinquent school Ageha Tech. He likes to fight and he likes to nap and he would be a perfect housewife if not for the delinquent part and the part where he's too blunt and rude at times, because he likes housework like cleaning and cooking. His favorite anime is Gundam and he collects gunpla.

He grew up in a family where no one cared about him except his sister (who now is very cold toward him) and no one has come look for him after he ran away from home over half a year ago because he doesn't matter to them. The most tight-knit family, he has. But he found a new one in the one that took him in after he ran away so he's good.

He'll be living in 1435 with a jelly and an idol, and I almost forgot to mention that the player is Hotaru and you can reach me at [plurk.com profile] hailingjavelin. By the way though, he's 17 and at the end of March, he'll be 18 so... he'll soon be a parent. He won't get to be a kid for long.

And adds a picture of a puppy:
08 February 2016 @ 11:23 pm

hello hello holly heights! this is emma, bringing in my fourth and probably final character for the time being: gatchaman crowds' o.d.. o.d. is beautiful, dramatic and completely overpowered, with a weakness for green lipstick and cats.

o.d. was half-alien, half-human before their arrival, but here they're just a remarkably tall person with purple hair who manages to look tired no matter how much rest they've had. (it's a talent.) o.d. is in house 1448 with kotori and jun.

as always, you guys are welcome to friend me at [plurk.com profile] soliari!

side note: i'm sure people have noticed my tags disappeared this past week, and that's because i was moving. miyuki, tsumugu and chikara are on hiatus for the next week so i can prioritize o.d., but tags will resume soon, since the actual move is over.
08 February 2016 @ 11:03 pm

I can't believe I have 5 characters now what the fuck I'm in hell. Not just regular hell, but I fell fast and hard into Daiya hell. I hate baseball. There are screencaps of my statuses saying how I can't watch Daiya because I hate baseball so much. But here I am. Bringing you an egg. God damn it.

Anyway, here's Koichiro Tanba from Daiya no Ace. He looks MEAN AND SCARY but he's actually a soft boiled egg. You just gotta peel past his shell and you'll find a smol yolk, trembling because he has to talk in front of people... protect him.

He'll be in 1418. Your father/husband has arrived.
08 February 2016 @ 09:51 pm
Yo yo yo, Holly! So adding to the fray of characters and hiatuses, it's Sunny again! This time with Anemone, a loud, sugar-crazed child from Eureka Seven. She pilots a mecha, is very temperamental, works for the government, and basically needs a babysitter (I am so sorry, house 1457. So, so sorry.)

She'll be running amok and looking for her dog. And I will probably intro her... after Katsucon, where I'll be this weekend like a fifth of the game apparently (what the hey).
