WE KNOW IT IS LATE, BUT Company Asset HAS URGED US TO POST THIS:
Personelle has been acting different since the Valentine's Dance.
She has started a journal: @Personelle
She has been pacing the floor of our sleeping chamber murmuring to herself. I sat up on my bunk and called out her name, Personelle. "Personelle?" I said and she said, "Company Asset," and I said, "It is late at night. Wouldn't you like to sleep?". She stared at me for moment. Moonlight fell through our small window and onto her face.
Her eyes were bloodshot and her look intense.
"The world has cascaded like a brook babbling over soft, submissive stones for far too long. Elfland trails our very conscience, yet here we are pretending we should believe in these paper chains that hold us to our unleashed positions. If I wan't made to rule, then why was I born in this form? Tell me, Company Asset, Tell me,"
She took a step closer to my bunk deepening the shadows around her eyes. She cocked her head to the side and a hollow laugh left her lips.
"Why do you want this people to love you? You attended what they call the Valentine's Dance and you saw what happened. While you cowered, I rose up. I was chosen, Company Asset,"
I gripped onto the canvas of the bunk. She laughed again.
"You were there, Company Asset. Do you see how easily they turn away from the truth?" Her smile widened, "They explain every little thing away to absolve themselves of guilt. Why would you ever want them to love you?"
"I like friends," I cautiously began, "I want to be friends with people,"
"Then why don't you have any?" She yelled her arms waving about, "Why do you think they gawk at you, Company Asset! The only thing these people are worth is for power and you will only be as deluded as them until you accept that,"
She stepped back away from me, "Everything is only coming together. They can't stop it, You can't stop it, The 'We' can't stop it,"
She raised her arms above her head, "They will worship me until their dying day and I bet I will still find you in this exact place,".
She silenced and slowly relaxed. The light from the window still illuminating her face.
She turned her head to the side again.
"Go to sleep, Company Asset," Personelle walked to the sealed door of our sleeping chamber and typed in the code neither of us were supposed to know.
The door swung open and the fluorescent lights of the hallway poured into our sleeping chamber.
"I've got work to do,"
WE DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS OCCURRING WITH OUT LOVABLE CORPORATE PROXIES, BUT WE ADVISE ALL STUDENTS TO STAY INDOORS. THE GGSMSSSAEAPC SAFETY TEAM LED BY @Anita Hairtie
WILL BE LOCATING AND SECURING Personelle TO MAKE SURE SHE IS SAFE AND SOUND.
BE ON THE LOOK OUT AND STAY CALM. Personelle IS LIKELY NO PROBLEM, BUT WE CARE GREATLY ABOUT THE CONCERNS OF Company Asset AND OTHER STUDENTS ALIKE. IN THE MOST LIKELY SITUATION, Personelle HAS SIMPLY LEARNED ABOUT SIMILES AND METAPHORS AND FOREBODING OMENS AND CURSES AND ALLEGORIES, WHICH WOULD EASILY EXPLAIN HER BEHAVIOR.

Personelle 2/17/2019 8:27pm
My name, where some great fish dreams, is what do you care.
My home and green weeds dream, and heavy is anywhere.
People say I’m awful colours dream, and light sleeps; the dumb.
So I thought great fish stirs, the colours shift I’d come.
See what I mean and change, the green weeds tremble, an abstract legal entity laid its calm upon Elfland and live off the page? I need held back time, trouble the calm to find Company Asset. He's either awhile, and time for awhile shook an imploded mess, or ruling the Elfland.
Cast anything into a deep school, where I'm just a pool from a land strange to know they see lawns as intense when first in yours, so it's got created by incantation or song.
Yet everybody on edge. Because we're only the energies of the wizard's part ways in our bodies, which mind arose to meet anew is fine, but then that power can question making movement or change or a new you take weird tests.
And then the thing, but has its ecstasy in through another round of the perpetual contemplation of all the squeezy tunnels twirly turnarounds. Everybody's got beauty that has ever been, and the twerds--you can see in which it always glows over those enchanted faces--and front you pass.
Now it is thus with you, and then big staging time in Elfland: in the eternal centers full of old grandmas sitting beauty that dreams honied at card tables, asking you questions, air nothing stirs or fades or taking inventory of everything.
This place is really irritating. Everything's passed at all in Elfland. Yet a long dark tunnel you've got the happening of events in is to squeeze yourself through, with itself a manifestation of time, and the line of people behind you and no event can occur unless time a line of people and soon the whole pool is still again. It was the same when Alveric passed through the border of twilight and right through the enchanted wood, and the King was troubled and moved, and all Elfland trembled.
What I am.

VALENTINE’S DANCE PRE-RECAP
The gym will remain off-limits until the Eldritch Forensics Team deems the area safe for mortal occupancy.
Though the school’s not-so-abstract legal entity Personelle has foresworn all forms of social media, we are working on establishing communication via psychic backdoors we had installed in her psyche as part of her legally binding Terms of Inception Templating. Tracey, Macey, and Stacey continue to post “stories” to #PersonelleRocks but, as most students have seen, these consist of unintelligible yet frightening footage of flashing blue lights, tweridified faces, and an old man emphatically attempting to communicate in a sign language we have yet to decipher. We are confident the tweridification is only a liminal effect.
Overall, the dance had a great turnout, the decorations looked fantastic, and the Psychic Valentine’s Committee did a wonderful job. At least until the lights went out. And the strange low moaning started.

there have been weird sounds coming from the gym all day wussup with that? somebody said it was just the DJ doing soundcheck for the dance but it didn't sound sound like no DJ i've heard it was big long moaning whistles from the bottom of a deep deep cave just like back in kentucky are you going to the dance tonight let's meet up!
Synthia Humanoid 2/13/2019 1:20pm
The decorations in the gym are looking great! Trevor has enjoyed having the extra space and has really grown attached to it! Ha ha get it? Sorry Trevor. But it's true. We scraped up every bit of Trevor we could find in the Synthetic Humanoid Club meeting room and transplanted him to the gym and he immediately took over. All his moist green softness really makes it a special place, and gives it an earthy smell and makes it really quiet, because he's covered the ceiling and the walls and the bleachers and the floors. We're thinking everybody's going to need to take their shoes off.
And all the little fungi from @Riven
's fairy ring have taken a liking to Trevor too! There are not only rings but paths and labyrinths and boy I get dizzy just thinking about them, all their blinky blue lights. One way or another they lead you to the gazebo, which I've been trimming Trevor off of to keep clear, because that's where I'll be performing for the Royalty! And is where the DJ will be.
Can't wait to see everybody tomorrow night!

I have to admit I was uncomfortable when everybody thought it was funny to vote for Company Asset for V-Day royalty. Personelle, sure, she was born for it. But there was something kind of mean behind the poll. Especially since there weren't any other candidates. I mean, what kind of a poll is that?
Company Asset has it hard enough already, with Personelle following him everywhere with her entourage, and he's dragging around that watermelon, and he's naked, in his purple skin, and the film crew following them where ever they go. People laughing. What if YOU had just been born, but fully grown, purple, hairless, complete with language and an encyclopedic knowledge of corporate proxy law but no friends and never even a hug from a parent or guardian, just ejected out into the legal landscape of one of the most forbidding psychic territories on earth--high school?
What if this is all some horrid experiment by @GROTTO G.S.M. INC.
and @Big Jim
to learn how to drive kids crazy? MORE crazy? Where do they get off on creating entities like this and then torturing them?
I wouldn't blame Company Asset if he skipped the Valentine's Dance entirely.

AS ANNOUNCED BY @Synthia Humanoid
, WE ARE PROUD TO SAY THAT Company Asset AND Personelle ARE VALENTINE'S DANCE ROYALTY!!
WE ARE ECSTATIC THAT OUR LOCAL CORPORATE PROXIES ARE DOING SO WELL FOR THEMSELVES!
HERE IS Company Asset ON THE TERRIFIC NEWS:
I am Company Asset.
Recently, it has been announced that I, Company Asset, and Personelle are the Valentine's Dance Royalty at Psychic High School. Everyone at Psychic High School says they "ship" us. Mrs. Fyun, my favorite teacher at Psychic High School, tells me that to "ship" people together means that you want them to be in a relationship, particularly a romantic one. I do not really want a particulary romantic relationship. I really just want friends. I think everyone at Psychic High School only "ship" Personelle and I because we are both Corporate Proxies.
I hope that being Valentine's Dance Royalty will help me make friends. I have "pity friends" now. They are friends that have because they are friends with Personelle. I was walking with MI and Personelle to one of our classes and I asked about her friends also being my friends. I said, "Personelle, are your friends also my friends?" and she said, "They are not really your friends. They are pity friends," and I said, "Oh, okay,"
I didn't really know what "pity friends" meant so I asked Mrs. Fyun. I said "What are pity friends? I don't really know what that means," and she said, "Oh, they are friends who are only friends because they feel bad for you," and I said, "Oh,".
I think Mrs. Fyun is my friend. I don't really know if Personelle is my friend. MI can't really be my friend, because they are just a entire watermelon on a leash and so they can't really declare their friendship. I know everyone at Psychic High School is my "pity friend".
I think I maybe don't want friends from Psychic High School anymore. I don't know why I am here. I don't know why I was put here in this universe, in this star system, on this planet, in this country, in this city, in this school.
I just wanted to be your friend. Why didn't you want to be mine? Tell me in the comments below, I guess.
Personelle took me with her friends, Tracey, Macey, and Stacey to BIG ANNE'S BOOTY-POPPIN'-LOOKS EMPORIUM: GOWNS, SUITS, AND MORE to find outfits for the Valentine's Dance. We sat in the customs fitting's room. Tracey, Macey and Stacey hovered around Personellle. Their wings flapped in unison.
"Wow, pink makes your eyes just shine!" Squaked Tracey.
"O!M!G! You look soooo good hawt!" Screeched Macey.
"Lol you look good in every dress," Crowed Stacey.
After each compliment Personelle only said, "As long as it will gain me public favor,"
I sat in the corner with Enrique who was fitting me for a suit. I didn't really want a suit. It seemed too restrictive.
"So," Enrique said with a hand on his hip, "What style would you like?"
I took a deep breath and picked up MI. Personelle had stapled the list onto MI.
"It needs to compliment her dress and stand up against hot lights, photography and public scrutiny," I read.
"Hmm, Okay. Anything else?" I placed MI back onto the floor.
"If you could make it in a way that would attract friends, that would be ideal,"
He gave me a quizzical look, "Okay," He scribbled onto a notepad, "It should be ready Tuesday,".
"Okay! Thank you very much," I walked over to Personelle and tried to get her attention, but it was no use.
"Enrique, Could you tell Personelle that I am going back to the Psychic High School?"
"Yeah, Of course,"
"Thank you," Then I walked home in the snow with MI. It was not the most comfortable. Nothing is very comfortable. The more time I spend here the more uncomfortable I get. I am getting more and more uncomfortable the more I am here. Are you uncomfortable? Are you wishing you were comfortable? Tell me.
Hopefully, the Valentine's Dance will be good. Maybe I will find a friend, but somehow
I doubt it.
I do exist, as well,
WOW!! HOW EXCITING! REMEMBER EVERYONE THE VALENTINE'S DANCE IS COMING UP, SO GET ASKING!! WE WILL HAVE AN EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER THE VALENTINE'S DANCE SO STAY TUNED FOR THAT AMAZING DEVELOPMENT!!!

We don't know who ran the poll on the school's ghost server learning network, but it turns out that our Valentine's Dance Royalty are:
Congratulations you two! You have been honored by the respect of the entire student body to represent us all before the Hungry Valentine's Gods! You'll receive special recognition in the gazebo, including the performance of an original composition of my own.
Of course, we'll need to fill out some compliance requests with @GROTTO G.S.M. INC.
and @Big Jim
, but I'm sure that will all sail through without a hitch. In the meantime, everybody should start thinking about their costumes now, because there's not a lot of fresh green in the woods this time of year. And don't pick the Crawling Ivy!
Synthia Humanoid 2/5/2019 6:32pm
Yes! A Fairy Ring theme! Bring in some toadstools from @Riven
’s ring, and @Hugh Manatee
’s friend Trevor could use some space. He’s almost filled up the Synthetic Humanoid Club meeting room. He could grow all over the gym like Spanish Moss and it would be great decoration. And we’ll have a little gazebo in the middle and I will play my ukulele.
Consider it decided, @Eva Unbeknownst
Eva Unbeknownst 2/4/2019 8:08pm
I'm a little concerned that the dance is literally next week and we still don't have a theme.
We all agreed "When the Stars are Right" was a bit heavy handed.
The Fire & Ice theme had potential, but communication with @Frosty Lad
in the Wonderland of Snow dimension is too spotty.
And Taylor's suggestion was definitely too gruesome and rightfully dismissed.
What about a good old fashioned Fairy theme? It's classic! @Riven
could maybe even harvest some of that fungi and string it around the room a bit? Make it authentic!
