This is from a neat Japanese independent animation called “Cirque le coeur” (available on YouTube). A seemingly innocuous circus tent holds a marvelous world of enchantment for our morose anime heroine…

An idea from KaiYves: a thread for discussing what we think are some of the most memorable moments that have happened here on the ‘blog and in the magazine, to celebrate a decade of all things Muse!
The first in a long time. You know what to do — let’s see what you conjure up!
From the “Digimon Adventure Movie.”
Some of you have requested a Yule Ball. We’re not sure that busy, increasingly overworked MBers have enough time or energy to carry one off this year. But Piggy has been relaxing at the still-open 2009 MA holiday party. We’ll move his post onto this thread to set the stage for some quiet times while the bleak Nordic weather lowers outside.
The decorations are up, the tables are sagging under the weight of the snacks, the music is playing, and the costumed guests are starting to arrive. What surprises lie in store this year?
Repaired, repainted, reinforced, and ready for Paker!
Continued, after a considerable lapse, from the 2011 Game Room thread.
In case you were wondering, yes, they dance. It’s indescribable.
If you’re in a public place, you might want to turn down the volume or put on headphones before proceeding further:
For those taking a break from the festivities.

Welcome to the mid-semester madness — Muse Academy at its most Hogwartsian. Please remember to observe the Academy’s rules of decorum and the standard laws of physics. Beyond that, anything goes!
The seasonally decorated rooftop garden is also open to anyone needing a change of scenery or a breath of fresh air.
Muse Academy (as everyone knows) loves parties, and the Halloween Ball always provides a much-needed mid-semester break. So, what’s in the lineup for this year?
Cat’s Eye sent it with the note:
I was recently surfing the Internet and I happened to stumble upon this photo. Shortly afterwards, I found out that it was taken in my area; the statue/mural in question is in San Francisco. In light of this, I thought I would send it in to be observed and recorded by the general MuseBlog community, and perhaps ask for a small prayer on my behalf.
Off with your coats!
Muse Academy’s spring formal is now in progress!
Details can be found on the planning thread. Here’s how Cerulean Pyros summarizes them:
Entry hall: furniture attached sidelong to the walls and ceiling and floor, to look like the rabbit-hole turned on its side.
Ballroom: Indoor garden; large mushroom-shaped seats; chess; lion and unicorn archway to roof; tea party; holograms.
Rooftop: Tent, to turn it into an interior; croquet; clever and complicated mirror maze, as described extensively above.
Dancing will be: Lobster quadrille, and an assortment of interesting music. Food extant according to guests’ imaginations. Attire to be formal, comfortable, stylish, and individual. Interactions not relegated to fellow MBers, due to the infinite range of Mysterious Strangers who attend the ball.
The rest is up to you.
An adjunct to the May Ball, this year’s rooftop garden features a tent, to turn it into an interior; croquet; and a clever and complicated mirror maze full of optical illusions, all described extensively on the planning thread.
It is warm and well lighted inside the tent; outside, for those who need it, there are cool fresh air and moonlight.
Amid all the talk of IRL proms, don’t forget that the Academy’s spring formal is coming up soon and needs planning, too. It’s the high point of the academic year, so let’s make it a good one.

As it is New Year’s Eve, you may now begin claiming your presents on the Holiday Party Gift Tree thread.
A thread for planning.
An ancient and revered MA/MB tradition. (You can see how it worked last year.)
The planning is done. On with the party!
Yeow! Let’s get on it.
A cooler, more secluded annex to the ball.
