(Part A: OP GreenOpal)
Once again, you wake up to find yourself surrounded by blasting laser lights and pounding dance beats...

The group of person to grab your attention is the small gender-confused child sitting on the floor, wearing goggles and using a laptop, who seems oblivious to the music around it. At least, that's the way it first appears, but when you later notice that the laser lights around the club are all being controlled by the child's movement on the laptop, you begin to wonder just how much she controls...

Moving towards the dance floor, some girls stand out from the start; A beautiful brown-haired girl with piercing green eyes and a diminuitive blonde, both dancing, jealously trying to attract attention from the nearby oblivious teen boy, who is standing against the wall looking bored. Meanwhile, a younger orange-haired girl seems fully involved in the party, until she starts to slow down as smoke starts billowing from her head...

After tiring yourself out somewhat, you move towards the bar to recover. There, you see a teenage girl chatting amiably about what seems to your muddled head to be nothing more than techno-babble, to a younger copy of herself. When the elder starts declaring that the younger's alien technology may be the true link to meeting them, yo decide to move on...

Glancing back at the stage, you can see that another group has arrived - a quiet, reserved girl dances shyly with a beautiful man, whose face is spoiled only by the slight features of a mouse. Next to them, a hyper-genki girl clings to a red-haired teen, who seems nothing nmore than irritated by the attention. As he slips on a spilt drink on the floor, the quiter girl reaches out to stop his fall, when a puff of smoke ensues... moments later, she is left clutching a cat and a resigned look on her face...

Escaping before you fall foul to a similar fate, you reach the outskirts of the pub, before encountering a man dressed in a terrible excuse at drag, with a red-and-spiky-haired girl standing next to him, eyes downcast. They appear to be performing a magic show for a group of children, although they seem to be messing up on a regular basis...

While looking around for something to eat, you see a huge trough, from which a number of pigs are enjoying their meal. You can't help but think that some of them look rather more human than the others...

Finally finding the ramen stand in the club, you encounter a huge blond man with a sword having an argument, seemingly over ramen, with a small (in every sense of the word) red-haired woman. The argument grows louder and angrier, until the woman shouts out some all-but-unintelligible gibberish whilst making curious posturings, and the man suddenly cowers and starts to run away...

Suddenly exhausted, you collapse upon the floor, and let the world go past. Until you are rudely awakened by alarm sirens blasting out "RETURN TO NEAREST SHELTER! RETURN TO NEAREST SHELTER!" Looking around once more, you notice a red-haired girl and a quiet boy seeming more irritated and resigned than scared...

(Part B: OP AlexChurchill)
first section (five anime)
The crews of two different spaceships have invaded the dance floor. The spaced-out captains (one male, one female) are relaxing at the bar, and other characters seem to pair up too: there are three girl pilots from one ship and two young twin pilots from the other; there's a military stickler-for-the-rules from each ship commiserating with each other the follies of their captains; one red-haired girl who looks almost elven is chatting to a girl of few words with pale-blue hair, and studiously attempting to ignore a demented girl jumping around trying to direct the ravers towards an obvious trapdoor.  A bishounen in excessively large and fancy robes is standing by a bell-pull and watching the way nobody steps over the trapdoor with a look of resignation on his face.

Two men are sitting playing a board game at the side. One seems in comunication with a spirit of sorts and is focusing on the black and white stones he's playing, while the other seems to think only he can see the lines on the board...
second section (six anime)
A discussion about building robots has erupted between a terrifying manic young schoolgirl with a bunch of bananas, a smooth-talking jack-of-all-trades with a screwdriver, and a beautiful blonde who seems to be in favour of using a magical mineral to make creations which evolve on their own.  Another hyper schoolgirl with a bunch of bananas seems very interested in the discussion also, for rather more personal reasons. 

A scientist in a white lab coat and an aging librarian have given up on this crowd and are vigourously debating the best way to achieve unification of every human personality on earth - the woman is making veiled references to lifeforms underneath the ground, while the man wants to usher in a society of total information freedom, but both blondes seem to be motivated by bringing back someone important from the dead, and both are agreed on the need for immense computing power.



And so the night came to an end...






These hallucinogenic visions originally bore more significance than a typical BigFishLittleFishBigFishLittleFishBigFishLittleFishCardboardBox nightmare. The puzzles' rewards have now been claimed, but the original clues provided were:
