Hmm, what should you know about me? Well, my name is Rain (you probably knew that), I play creatures (of course), and I like cats (who doesn't?). I'm also very creative, so I shouldn't have too hard of a time setting up a nice little shelter and finding something to occupy myself with...I just hope I don't get kicked off. D:

Day 1, Journal Entry 1

Well, this is my first journal entry...um, hi? Sorry, this is my first game of survivor. :P

Well, I just got here, and it's already thundering and raining. I've always like thunderstorms, but only if I have some sort of shelter to watch it from. Which I don't. Yet. Well, at least it's warm.

However, I've decided that this gives me a chance to gather what supplies I can get from under the cover of the forest that's past the beach, then head onto the beach once it stops raining to begin construction of my shelter.

I've been working out designs in my head, and I've finally settled on one that will require a fairly small amount of materials.

Since I have no way of protecting my journal, I figure it will be read by other survivor members who happen upon it. And since I have no quarrels with anyone so far, I'm going to leave a little tip here for people intending to build a shelter on the beach. Some people may know it already, but maybe not.
TIP: The point where the waves will not reach, even at full moon, is the section of the beach between the edge of the part with the washed up seaweed, shells, wood and junk and the forest and grass that's more inland.

Now, I'm going to gather some wood. I hope a tree doesn't land on me....yikes. D:

I forgot to mention, there's gonna be some lyrics in my journal from time to time, because sometimes there's not much to do except record lyrics from pure memory.
This time, it's english lyrics for Magia, the ending theme to Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

One day, the light of love
Though it may seem far away
Will shine again in your eyes
(Transcend and rise above)
But there's only one dream
And it has ripped at the seam
This world will end in ruin
(And I'll lose I love!)

Swallow all your doubt, make your lust cry out!
I will help you swallow your hesitation, you'll trust me
Cause you yearn with greed, though your heart may bleed
Will we fade away from this world with no hope to hold onto?

I remember you from a dream I thought was truth
You bright with magic and I blinded by my youth
All I wish is for your hand to hold, you see
Only your smiles kills the dark in me
With these hands, I try to hold what I cannot seize
I'm like a rose thrown into a violent breeze
All my strength, thrown away
With my heart, I will stay
Praying for light, guiding my wish with all my might

One day, it will come true
That wish you have inside you
To save the one that you love
(Is that a selfish act?)
They will lecture your heart
That's when confusion will start
You'll say words you've never heard
(Just how would you react?)

If I can go on and not lose my way
I will sacrifice my heart and let it fray to pieces
What I really need is a spell to cast
To stand up against all the pain and fear that will always last

You were still lost in a dream watching the passed skies
While I am the only dreamer that cannot rest
But I will open my eyes and chase the hope
That I will be at your side as if we're blessed
With these hand, I picked a rose and have stopped it's life
Only now I understand, I stole it's life!
Deep inside, I'm alive
For my love, I'll survive
Though I regret using my own heart as a sheathe

The stories that I heard as a child kept me dreaming...
Where magic runs free and imprisoned suns remain always gleaming....
The fairy tales I loved have taught me (have taught me)
No matter what hurdles there may be
Your wish comes true
(Was I fool to trust in those lies?)

In the night wild with fright, the old magic stirs
Blooming with grace, it rises up to meet my face
"With these hands, you can change this whole world of yours!"
"Everything that you wish for is in your grasp!"
All I want is to forever dream with you
To live a life where all of me is alive
Deep inside, I will give
All my love, just to live
I won't regret making this sinful wish of mine!

Day 1, Journal Entry 2
It looks like the rain won't be letting up any time soon, so I'm probably going to be stuck in this forest all day and night.

There's not for me to do. I hope I can find some tall grass around here, then I can I start weaving stuff. :D

I think I've seen Layla running around, so I'm gonna go find her and have a chat with her.

Day 1, Journal Entry 3

I been walking around for a while, though making sure to stay near my wood pile. I haven't seen Layla yet, but-

Wait, I smell marshmallows. And smoke. Oh, there she is! I wonder if she's seen any bamboo or tall grass around here?

Day 1, Journal Entry 4

Layla ran out of marshmallows before I got there. I don't blame her. I mean, people were probably flocking to her for some marshmallows.

She couldn't direct me to any bamboo or grass. Oh well, I'm sure I can find some once the rain lets up.

I saw Deskman walking around. I watched him make a fishing pole, and then he left it behind because it was raining. Silly Deskman! Doesn't he know that rainy weather is the best fishing weather?

But that reminded me, I should probably be looking for food myself. I've seen some palm trees, but I absolutely DESPISE coconuts. >.< Hopefully I can find some fruit around here. Experts say that you're supposed to eat bugs, like ants, but there is no way in heck THAT is going to happen!

While I was out gathering fruits (I managed to find some good looking ones), I found Lisha with her baby up a tree with a bear trying to get to her!

The bear was pretty far up the tree, so all I had to do was throw a rock at it to startle it and make it fall to the ground. I didn't know if it was knocked out or dead, and decided to get Lisha and her son out before we found out.

I directed them to a non-lethal animal's empty burrow for them to stay the night, and also gave them some of the yummy fruits I gathered.

I'm going to check on the bear in a little bit. If it was just KO'd, it should be gone. If it's dead, I'm going to skin it and keep the meat if it hasn't already spoiled too much.

Day 1, Journal Entry 6

I went back to the bear, and it was still there. After chucking some stones at it and poking, I finally decided that either it was dead, or in a very deep sleep. To make sure, I stabbed it in the eye with my knife (it's not as epic as it sounds, trust me).

The pelt was fine, and so was the meat. And there was plenty of it. I rubbed the slabs of meat with salt and pepper to preserve them and emptied my bag to store them in there. If the rain stops by tomorrow, I should be able to lay it all out on some rocks to dry in the sun.

As for the pelt, it's almost ready to use. Good thing too, I'm getting sleepy! This is probably going ot be last entry for the night.

I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I'm not doing anything today. I can't move forward with my plans for shelter and such until it stops raining. So I'm just going to hide under this nice big bear pelt where the rain can't get me.

However, it's very hot, so I did turn my bag on it's side and open it up so that the moisture from the meat can escape and the meat can dry somewhat.

I also don't want to feel TOTALLY unaccomplished, so I'm also going to write some lyrics.

World's End Dancehall
(unofficial english lyrics)


Cross the borderline of black and white and
Climb the stairway, up and up we go
Nothing good to do, just bored to death
Hey, can I take your hand and steal you away?
Step and stumble, do you want to go on?
Don't you worry, the altar is our floor
Toss and turn, and dizzy up ourselves
Keep on dancing, you and me, right here, now

("Shall we dance?" "Say what?";)
("Shall we dance?" "No thank you.";)
("Shall we dance?" "Enough.";)
("Shall we dance?" "No more, please.";)
("Shall we dance?" "Don't need it.";)
("Shall we dance?" "Go away!";)
("Shall we dance?";)

Bury the room with all the shrill, cold voices
Swirl the senses, down and down we go
Nothing good to do, just bored to tears
Hey, how 'bout making a clean breast of it now?

Meaning connected to these simple words
Reason of hating without seeing them
Finding it... finding it... no meaning, no reason
Gnash my teeth while smiling shy
Smile with eyes shut and everything black
I don't want to bore myself with all that nonsense!

Hop'n, step'n, may I have this dance?
This is the world's end, shall we do the 'one, two'?
Drink in all this apocalyptism
How 'bout a little taste of a daze?
Tick and tack, the moments moving on
Shoot now, say cheese, our time is running out
Round and round an, going round and round
Intoxicate, the world is getting--

A special just for you bystanders
Jump in the terminal, let's start the race
Nothing good to do just bored to death
Hey, can I take your hand and steal you away?

Something seems to be unusual, wrong
Shall we believe in what is called our fate?
Step and stumble, do you want to go on?
No, how about making a fool of our selves?

Meaning of repeating all these foolish moves
Reason to step as the music grooves
Finding it... finding it... no meaning, no reason
Just want to dance when I need a little blue
Just want to laugh when I need a little tear
I don't want to hear anymore of that ego!

Pop'n sense'n, may I have this song?
Before the worlds end, shall we sing the 'un, deux'?
My heart, it's yours, can you feel the beat?
No no, not yet, I won't forget how
Oh my, look and see, what a lovely!
There there, the world's a monochrome highway
Crawl and creep, not a single piece will move
Anyhow, it's dead, nothing's going to change

Hop'n step'n, may I have this dance?
This is the world's end, shall we do the one, two?
Dring in all if this apocalyptism.
How about a little taste of daze and
Tick and Tack, the moments moving on.
Shoot now, say cheese, our time is running out.
Farewell, so long have a nice day.
Goodbye, to this World's End--

The rain's finally let up, but the sun has already set. However, it's still pretty hot, and things are drying off pretty quickly, so I'm going to start a campfire.

I've started thinking about the designs for my shelter. I was going to dig a pit on the beach and lay wood and palm leaves over it, but now that I think about it, if it starts raining again, then all the water's just going to seep inside, isn't it? But if I use a different one, it would take some much wood to finish it...

I'm going start the campfire now, then I can start smoking the meat.

Sorry I didn't make an entry yesterday, I was, uh...busy. Yeah. See, I was, uh...carrying wood to the beach all day. Why is it still here? Well, that's because...um

Alright, you caught me, I was sleeping all day. T_T It was just so warm and the bear pelt was so soft, I just slept all day. As for the fire, it just burned out without doing any damage, thankfully.

Well, the meat's finally dried and smoked. Now I'm REALLY going to do work. I've decided I'm just going to find a cliff on the beach, lean wood against it, put some palm leaves and grass on top, and that can be my shelter. It'll do.

After that's done, I'm probably going to gather some more fruit, then plan something FUN! It's been "Let's Play Survival" ever since I've started this journal, and I'm SO ready to break that pattern.

Nothing exciting really happened today. I gathered fruit, had some of the meat (not bad, if I do say so myself :D), and thought some more about what kind of event I could plan.

I was going to do a party, but that's not very creative. I have to make the event about something, and that something is very elusive.

I've got my little lean-to, and it's not bad, don't spend much time in it, anyway.

Well, here are more lyrics.

Egomama (Egoselfishness)
English Lyrics


Love or self, you have to choose
Is it I, or is it you?
"Very well, the choice is yours."
And with your glimpse...

Well, love it what we give
And love it what we get
So I would have to say
We're quite a happy set

Our intuitions off
We love each other still
'Ego' or else 'we go'?
Let's be sure to make this clear...

"I'm doing this all for you"
"I'm doing this all for me"
Dare say that about our love
And, Mister, I'll have to do away with you

Love or Self, still if you choose]
I and you have not to loose
In the end, we're still just fine
To keep on smiling all the time
If this world's a loveless one
And we're to keep living on
Then where it is that you must be
Is anywhere but here with me

So, then, I wonder, is your choice all up to this...
Are you choosing with your Egoselfishness?

Love is what so captivates us
But this love at times lead to loathing
It's a choice to be made as a pair
But it's one of us who has to die

Both of us are selfish still
Gasping breathless for some air
"Who do you think you are?"
"Thanks, it was delectable!"

"I'm doing this all for you"
"I'm doing this all for me"
Well, we're doing it both for us
I'm going to hide my face and cry my eyes out!


Love and self, this I decide
And so, here is my reply
No one's murder shall be done
Instead, us two shall be as one

"I'm going this all for you"
"I'm doing this all for me"
Let us have them be good friends
And hold each other to the end

Love or self, now that we know
I and you are free to go
To smile and laugh, and more than so
We'll also cry if so we chose
If this world's a loveless one
And we're to keep living on
There's nowhere for us to be
Not anywhere that I can see

So, then, I wonder, does your choice come down to this...
Does your Egoselfishness make it exist?

It's storming again. Layla apparently can't build a stable shelter to save her life, and I should have enough space in my lean-to for an extra bed of leaves, so I'm going to go invite her to stay with me for now.

It looks like these weird spider-like bugs have been really digging into our food. We have to gather twice as much, because the spiders will eat half of it. There are so many of them....I wonder if there's a nest? If so, maybe we could torch it. I wonder if Layla still has some shaving cream left?

It's GrayDragonEmily's birthday today! I'm going to prepare a party for her.

I've found a bamboo grove, so I can make some standing torches.

I'm going to have to gather a LOT of fruit, so I'm going to go around to everyone (except Emily, of course, why should she work for her own birthday?) and see if I can get some volunteers to help gather food and/or donate some. I hear that Ylukyun has some pineapple wine. Maybe he'd be willing to donate? Or, if he doesn't have enough for everyone, at least give some to Emily as a gift?

One problem is those pesky spiders. I'll have to come up with a plan for keeping them away from camp...

Ylukyun's sent some wine to Emily, and I'm coming up a bit dry with volunteers.

I've taken a bamboo segment and made a vertical flute with carvings of flowers and vines on it as a gift.

And as for the spiders, I've come up with a way to keep them away from the camp. First, I set up some ground-level torches in a large loop around the camp. Then I burn every spider I can find in the camp and clean them out. The spiders won't come inside the loop or torches.

I've gathered quite a bit of fruit, and now I just need to round up some guests.

Well, it looks like everyone on the island was, for one reason or another, not able to come to the birthday party. I can't even find Emily!

Well, I'm gonna gather the fruit up and give it to her with the flute and tell her I tried.

I feel really bad now...T_T

I've left the gifts at Emily's camp, along with a note. I'm still feeling a bit bad about the whole failed party.

While I was walking back, I found a strange plant. It's about 2-feet tall, is tear-drop shaped, and is split in four sections. While I was looking closely at it, a bird came and landed on the tip of it, then it opened up and ate the bird!

I'm back at camp now. I'm going to get some paper and something to write with so that I can sketch it.

Layla apparently made a miniature golf course! It sounds like fun, so I guess I'll go check it out later.

So I was thinking, if those plants I found eat birds, maybe they could act as a pest control for the spiders? I'll have to find out.
