the vigilant citizen

Potential Otome Game Idea II

…Voltage created an otome game where you’re the city’s masked vigilant.

By day, you’re the clumsy waitress at a small town, family-owned cafe. 

By night, you’re the city’s masked vigilant protecting citizens from petty crimes, and maybe even themselves. 

Superpower or no superpower? )

“Your Childhood Friend”
The head detective in charge of un-masking you has been your childhood friend since you two were in diapers. He’s always been like a big brother to you, but seeing him in action has of way of making your heart race, and it’s not just the adrenaline rush. He has come close to capturing you numerous times, but you’ve always managed to keep yourself five steps out of this reach. When you suddenly discover he has a target on his back as a person seeking revenge from an old case he had worked, you watch over him from the shadows. Catching you off guard, you find yourself handcuffed to him as he leers down at your triumphantly as he pulls you in close.

“Why do your eyes seem so familiar?”

“The New Rival”
There’s a new vigilante in town, and he keeps beating you to the punch. Is he friend or foe? One day you find a note in your work locker, addressed to your masked self. Your blood runs cold as someone asks to meet you at Midnight at the designated spot. Right on the dot, he suddenly appears before you, shooting you a cheeky grin. This is the first time you two have met face to face, having only knowing him from his blurred silhouette in the newspaper. “Who are you?” you ask, “and what do you want?” He smirks as he grabs your hand and kisses it, looking up at you mischievously. 

“What do you think?”

“The Thief”
Your greatest foe, and yet there’s something more to him that you can’t quite place. Something familiar… No matter how many times you catch him and leave him for the authority, he always manages to escape and evade custody, shooting you a wink and a kiss as he disappears into the night. It’s a re-occuring game of cat and mouse. When you find yourself injured after your latest altercation, he comes back with things to help treat your wound. Suddenly there’s an awkward side to his flirtatious personality as he helps you with your injuries. Your heart skips a beat when he looks up at your with a sense of guilt.

“This is all my fault…”

“The Nosey Co-Worker”
You’ve never gotten along with your co-worker, your personalities clashing and in his eyes, you’re always do something wrong which he’ll explain in exact details. And yet, he is always covering for you without question asked which makes you think there’s more to him than he’ll let on. Then again, whatever he thinks up is always ridiculously embarrassing, as he sticks his tongue out at your arrogantly while your boss frets over you. Finding yourselves alone one evening closing up, you find yourself cornered as he leans down and stares at you with a knowing look.

“I know your secret.”

“The Sympathetic Boss”
Extremely kind, he always accepts whatever ridiculous excuses your co-worker comes up with when you arrive to work half an hour late. You can’t help but blush every time he gives you a strong pat on the back for a job well done. He was the one who had offered you the job in a time where you were struggling to meet ends meet. For that you are eternally grateful, and harbor feelings for him from afar, because you fear the danger he may be in when you are your other self.  He has always seen your potentially, often asking with a laugh, why you stick around when you could do better, that always makes your heart ache, because this is close to him as you’ll ever be. When you come in exhausted after a long night, he pulls you aside and taking you into the break room, orders you to rest. Looking down at you sternly, you can’t help but look away. 

“What aren’t you telling me?”

What about DR characters experience in Disney World? Sonia would be mistaken as Disney Princesses though she really is one so the kids and staff would love her. Fuyuhiko and Hiyoko being mistaken as younger children and may not be able to ride that many rides cause their height. Aoi would love Seaworld and be like Ariel since she is the ultimate swimmer. Twogami would be good at Cosplaying Disney characters and all. But whats your head cannons of their experiences in Disney world?

OH MY GOSH HOW PURE?? SORRY THESE HCS ARE SO UNORGANISED I JUST WROTE THEM DOWN WHILE THEY WERE FRESH IN MY MIND ~ Mod Oddish


Right, so, although I’m guessing that they’d all go to Disneyworld together (I feel so sorry for those poor fellow plane passengers), I feel like they’d all get into their own little groups while they were in the park…

  • Makoto would probably spend all of his time trying to get Byakuya to cheer up and go on a ride or say hi to a character, and although Kyouko’s probably about as into it as Byakuya is, she just hangs back and silently laughs at Makoto’s (failing) attempts BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT GOOD FRIENDS DO. Makoto buys both of them mouse-ear hats and spends a good hour chasing Byakuya down Main Street trying to get it on his head.
  • Kiyotaka would follow Mondo around claiming that he’s being a good, vigilant citizen and making sure that a delinquent like him didn’t cause any trouble – but really it’s just because he wants to join in with Mondo and Chihiro’s fun. They invite him on literally every ride they pass by but he hangs back to watch them both every time.
  • MAHIRU WOULD HAVE SUCH AN AMAZING TIME. Of course, Hiyoko would be with her nearly every waking moment (who am I kidding, they’d share a hotel room and sleep in bunk beds too), but they’d just have a lovely time walking around and taking as many pictures as they possibly can. Hiyoko gets really upset when Mahiru goes on the tallest ride in the park to get a shot from really high up, BECAUSE LIKE YOU SAID HIYOKO WOULDN’T BE TALL ENOUGH. Everyone told Mahiru she was crazy for bringing like twelve memory cards for her camera until they realised how many photos she’d actually take.
  • ADDING ONTO YOUR IDEA ABOUT SONIA, I think that Celes and Sayaka would probably have the same experience as well – maybe some fans would recognise Sayaka for who she actually was, but they’d all be bombarded for pictures either way BECAUSE THEY’RE SO PRETTY. (Teruteru and Hifumi spend the day together trying to follow the girls around too.)
  • Junko and Mukuro spend the entire day together scaring children (especially when Junko gets mistaken for Cruella De Vil with her whole glamourous get-up), buying bear-themed merchandise and riding the Tower of Terror – Junko’s favourite ride, by the way. They probably vandalise a Mickey logo to make it look like Monokuma. OH, and Mukuro was very sad to hear that she wasn’t allowed to take a knife into Disneyworld.
  • I think Ibuki would drag around some of the quieter students from her class, like Mikan, the Imposter, Nagito and Chiaki! Like, taking them to all the parades and shops and trying her best to coax them onto rides (especially Chiaki, who tends to fall asleep in the long queues). They’d all end up taking a bunch of group selfies and riding the teacups five times in a row because it’s the only place Mikan feels like nobody’s gonna get hurt BLESS HER.
  • Same goes for Aoi, she’s sort of the mother hen of some of the 78th students, maybe Sakura, Touko and Yasuhiro? (Bonus points if Komaru goes too.) Of course they’d all spend quite a bit of time in the waterpark (and Aoi gets a REALLY AMAZING VIDEO OF YASUHIRO FALLING DOWN A SLIDE). Nekomaru and Akane probably spend a ton of time at the waterpark too because? PUSHING EACH OTHER IN THE WATER AND HUGE SLIDES? SOUNDS LIKE FUN
  • I also think that Kazuichi and Leon would just turn into complete children the second they walk into the park, despite complaining the entire way there that they’d rather go on vacation somewhere “not for babies”. Kazuichi falls in love with Snow White. And then Aurora. And then Rapunzel. Leon spends all his money on merch that he’ll never fit in his suitcase. They’re not even embarrassed by how much they enjoy the parades and fireworks shows. …And Hajime and Gundam are put on Punk Duty since they’re both not too interested in rides and, well… someone has to make sure nothing goes wrong with those two.
  • Naturally, Fuyuhiko would be as grumpy as Kazuichi and Leon were to be spending his time at Disneyworld, but he actually has a great time with Peko; sharing ice cream (or cotton candy, since Kuzu doesn’t like milk) and getting pictures by the castle, watching all their classmates running around being happy. I doubt they’d go on too many rides, but sitting back and watching the parades and shows is pretty magical for them anyway.
  • ALSO CHISA, MUNAKATA AND JUZO ARE THERE. DON’T KNOW WHY. THEY JUST ARE AND THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME.

REMINDER: This ask was sent when we were accepting requests. Right now, we aren’t! Please be respectful of that!

Researching about the true motivations of the elite can become a disturbing and consuming exercise. It is easy to become angry, bitter and disgruntled about what is discovered. Yes, realizing that the elite is a sick, twisted and outright evil group is very unsettling and leads to lots of questioning. But, in the end, we must not allow ourselves to be sucked into “their” world and become obsessed with their culture of death. We must live our own lives to the fullest, according to our own values and, more importantly, we must never forget that life is still breathtakingly beautiful. I often say that for each minute one spends learning about the ugly truth in the world, one must spend five enjoying its beauty. If we become angry, bitter and depressed, we’ve lost and they won. It is not enough to know about their plans, we must carry out OUR plans. “They” are definitely trying to debase us from what is real, right, pure, good and authentic to make us accept their values, but we don’t have to accept it.

As prepared for delivery —

Mr. President,

I am deeply grateful for your welcome in the name of all Americans. As the son of an immigrant family, I am happy to be a guest in this country, which was largely built by such families. I look forward to these days of encounter and dialogue, in which I hope to listen to, and share, many of the hopes and dreams of the American people.

During my visit I will have the honor of addressing Congress, where I hope, as a brother of this country, to offer words of encouragement to those called to guide the nation’s political future in fidelity to its founding principles. I will also travel to Philadelphia for the Eighth World Meeting of Families, to celebrate and support the institutions of marriage and the family at this, a critical moment in the history of our civilization.

Mr. President, together with their fellow citizens, American Catholics are committed to building a society which is truly tolerant and inclusive, to safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of unjust discrimination. With countless other people of good will, they are likewise concerned that efforts to build a just and wisely ordered society respect their deepest concerns and their right to religious liberty. That freedom remains one of America’s most precious possessions. And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.

Mr. President, I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing air pollution. Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation. When it comes to the care of our “common home”, we are living at a critical moment of history. We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about “a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change” (Laudato Si’, 13). Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them. Our common home has been part of this group of the excluded which cries out to heaven and which today powerfully strikes our homes, our cities and our societies. To use a telling phrase of the Reverend Martin Luther King, we can say that we have defaulted on a promissory note and now is the time to honor it.

We know by faith that “the Creator does not abandon us; he never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us. Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home” (Laudato Si’, 13). As Christians inspired by this certainty, we wish to commit ourselves to the conscious and responsible care of our common home.

The efforts which were recently made to mend broken relationships and to open new doors to cooperation within our human family represent positive steps along the path of reconciliation, justice and freedom. I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children.

Mr. President, once again I thank you for your welcome, and I look forward to these days in your country. God bless America!

Remarks of President Barack Obama
Arrival Ceremony for His Holiness Pope Francis
The White House
Sept. 23, 2015

As prepared for delivery —

Good morning! What a beautiful day the Lord has made! Holy Father, on behalf of Michelle and myself, welcome to the White House. Our backyard is not typically this crowded — but the size and spirit of today’s gathering is just a small reflection of the deep devotion of some 70 million American Catholics…and the way your message of love and hope has inspired so many people, across our nation and around the world. On behalf of the American people, it is my great honor and privilege to welcome you to the United States of America.

Today, we mark many firsts. Your Holiness, you have been celebrated as the first Pope from the Americas. This is your first visit to the United States. And you are also the first pontiff to share an Encyclical through a Twitter account.

Holy Father, your visit not only allows me, in some small way, to reciprocate the extraordinary hospitality you extended to me at the Vatican last year. It also reveals how much all Americans, from every background and of every faith, value the role that the Catholic Church plays in strengthening America. From my time working in impoverished neighborhoods with the Catholic Church in Chicago, to my travels as President, I’ve seen firsthand how, every day, Catholic communities, priests, nuns, and laity feed the hungry, heal the sick, shelter the homeless, educate our children, and fortify the faith that sustains so many.

What is true in America is true around the world. From the busy streets of Buenos Aires to remote villages in Kenya, Catholic organizations serve the poor, minister to prisoners, build schools and homes, and operate orphanages and hospitals. And just as the Church has stood with those struggling to break the chains of poverty, it has given voice and hope to those seeking to break the chains of violence and oppression.

And yet, I believe the excitement around your visit must be attributed not only to your role as pope, but to your unique qualities as a person. In your humility, your embrace of simplicity, the gentleness of your words and the generosity of your spirit, we see a living example of Jesus’ teachings, a leader whose moral authority comes not just through words but also through deeds.

You call on all of us, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, to put the “least of these” at the center of our concern. You remind us that in the eyes of God our measure as individuals, and as societies, is not determined by wealth or power or station or celebrity, but by how well we hew to Scripture’s call to lift up the poor and the marginalized, to stand up for justice and against inequality, and to ensure that every human being is able to live in dignity — because we are all made in the image of God.

You remind us that “the Lord’s most powerful message” is mercy. That means welcoming the stranger with empathy and a truly open heart — from the refugee who flees war torn lands, to the immigrant who leaves home in search of a better life. It means showing compassion and love for the marginalized and the outcast, those who have suffered, and those who seek redemption.

You remind us of the costs of war, particularly on the powerless and defenseless, and urge us toward the imperative of peace. Holy Father, we are grateful for your invaluable support of our new beginning with the Cuban people, which holds out the promise of better relations between our countries, greater cooperation across our hemisphere, and a better life for the Cuban people. We thank you for your passionate voice against the deadly conflicts that ravage the lives of so many men, women, and children; and your call for nations to resist the sirens of war and resolve disputes through diplomacy.

You remind us that people are only truly free when they can practice their faith freely. Here in the United States, we cherish religious liberty. Yet around the world at this very moment, children of God, including Christians, are targeted and even killed because of their faith. Believers are prevented from gathering at their places of worship. The faithful are imprisoned. Churches are destroyed. So we stand with you in defense of religious freedom and interfaith dialogue, knowing that people everywhere must be able to live out their faith free from fear and intimidation.

And, Holy Father, you remind us that we have a sacred obligation to protect our planet — God’s magnificent gift to us. We support your call to all world leaders to support the communities most vulnerable to a changing climate and to come together to preserve our precious world for future generations.

Your Holiness, in your words and deeds, you set a profound moral example. And in these gentle but firm reminders of our obligations to God and to one another, you are shaking us out of complacency. All of us may, at times, experience discomfort when we contemplate the distance between how we lead our daily lives and what we know to be true and right. But I believe such discomfort is a blessing, for it points to something better. You shake our conscience from slumber; you call on us to rejoice in Good News, and give us confidence that we can come together, in humility and service, and pursue a world that is more loving, more just, and more free. Here at home and around the world, may our generation heed your call to “never remain on the sidelines of this march of living hope!”

For that great gift of hope, Holy Father, we thank you, and welcome you, with joy and gratitude, to the United States of America.
