Things seem to be getting more complicated by the day. Therapy was almost entertaining, if rather uninformative. The events I later in the courtyard though…. At least I got a chance to forge some connections with Alex and am now aware of a healer in this madhouse.
I Haven’t been out of my room that much, but I missed seeing Greed or the tall fellow with the long odd colored hair out in the courtyard. I hope they're alright. I know Greed was with us for part of last night and I thought I saw him following us back across the courtyard when we returned, but I can't recall seeing him after the fight with the cat creature.
On the note of supplies, I've gained another cup, fork, and spoon. And another meal tray is shoved under the bed. I wonder how long before they'll notice they're not getting them back.

Last night was… interesting to say the least. I'm not sure I should be horrified or just glad to be alive. I have never… it is odd to think of those creatures as something to pity and I would not take back my actions, but I don't like the fact I killed last night. I don't like it at all, but I don't think that will stop me from doing it again if I can't see another choice. On to more cheerful matters though.( turn the pageCollapse )

Despite how happy I was to see people other then the staff of this place I was pleased to get back to my room. I wanted to try a few arrays, since I had pen and paper and time to kill. Something is very wrong here.
I may not be the most studied or skilled alchemist, but I'm hardly useless. The alchemy feels wrong, weak and shaky and… diluted. Like a mouthful of wine poured into a whole gallon of water. Thermal energy is what I'm most used to working with, but even that was hard. Using the arrays was more draining then it has been in a long time and the results were far less then I would have hoped.
The sheet of ice I managed to create was hardly more then a few feet square and half an inch thick. It lasted barely ten minutes before it was more puddle then ice. And working in the other direction was little better. I managed to set a corner of one of the sweaters to smoldering from the condensed heat, but it didn't even really catch flame. I doubt I could do more then light a candle at this point.
What I can still do may be little enough, but it seems to be all I have for now. I may try to test a few other arrays later.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this place yet, but I don't like it very much. Brunch was… interesting to say the least. The people I got to talk to didn't seem to have any more of an idea how they got here then I do. The people here seem to be willing to resort to threats and other methods to keep us here. We all seem to be treated about the same though. I wonder if anything else is the same?
Notes and observations on the people I met.
Claims to be a general. Could be useful if he's any sort of fighter. He at least seems calmer and more rational then the other two. When he was talking it sounded a bit like he'd been in this sort of situation before. Watch him.
Hot headed. Impulsive. Loud. He could be trouble. He could also be a good distraction. Might try to get close to him later and make friends, but not too close. Best avoid him for now.
I'm really not sure what to make of him. He came late to the table. Impulsive, but not as bad as Kyo. Seems to be somewhat reasonable, but edgy too. Need to figure out which way he'll jump.
