Anyone &/or Everyone!WHEN:
Day 6, All Day!WHERE: Persona House!WHAT:
An impromptu house party.I: Open To All
On the morning of Day 6, there are some changes to the Inaba District. For blocks around, all the sidewalks have become moving walkways, all of them funneling pedestrian traffic towards the house
at the bottom of the hill, the doorway and the back gate into the yard festooned with pink, yellow, and purple crepe paper and any number of bright foil balloons bobbing in the breeze.
Inside the house, there's a root beer keg sitting in the middle of the kotatsu, and a sheet cake with marshmallow fluff frosting on the kitchen table. A big-screen TV and an expansive DVD rack sit along one wall; a hot tub is visible in the back yard, and a number of simple party games are stacked along one wall. With the number of people living in the house (ten at the moment), being always ready for a party is somewhat natural. Cats are everywhere
on the main floor, and anyone opening the door to the basement is likely to meet a curious rabbit or two on the stairs.
As for the inhabitants of the house, they're around too, with reactions ranging from equable to bemused to annoyed.II: Closed to Castmates
Before too long, a roll of crime scene tape has been appropriated to cordon off the upstairs and downstairs, and everyone's been alerted to the situation. The kitchen whiteboard reads 'House Meeting: Downstairs Workshop, 2PM' - a notice that actually went up before the party started, but it's possible nobody noticed that. At the appointed time, Souji's made sure some reliable-seeming stranger is watching the main floor, and has brought down quilts and cushions to set up a comfortable discussion circle.
"...It might have been better to do this at the Junes Food Court, if we could," he says, when everyone's assembled. "But I didn't want to have to try to find it."III: Closed to Amat Veterans + Chie
When the rest of the house meeting is done, Souji ducks into one of the downstairs bedrooms and retrieves the contents of the mini-fridge: four boxes of topsicles. Handing two to Teddie and two to Nanako, he delegates the solemn responsibility of making sure everyone upstairs gets one to them, and promises the rest of them will be up in just a few minutes.
"...Now that we're all on the same page," he offers apologetically, "there are a few other things we should discuss as well. Chie, you don't have to be here for this part if you'd rather not, but... it's probably good to know."
