you're just a well-rounded, gatorade-drinking gif machine that looks like He-Man and Shaggy had a lovechild.

"...I...dunno actually where I'm roomed in...I...left that paper at home... S-Still...a welcoming part might actually be a good idea I suppose."
"Don't worry, I think I left my paper at home too. So... when are we doing this?"
"Today, probably." That made the most sense to Sayuri, at least. It would be the most welcoming of a welcome party if it was on the day of arrival, wouldn't it? Besides, quite a few people in the class seemed down with the idea. If all three of these boys, plus Ino, all pitched in, she'd be more surprised if it wasn't ready to go off today. During the talk of the party, Mike had left the room, presumably to call his parents. Sayuri's lips curled up into a small smile. She'd done her good deed for the day. It wasn't some life-saving act or anything like what everyone else was here for, but if nobody had said anything, Mike would probably be denied his dream(?) of becoming a hero.
The idea of it happening the way it would have didn't sit well with her.
"Although, the people just now coming to the dorms should unpack their things before we have a party."
"I gotta admit, Crystal, I sorta pegged you for a slacker during our match. Giving up like that so easily...but maybe there's hope for you yet. But if you wanna get any better you gotta aim for the top. I don't want to hear any of this 'not aiming for number-one' crap outta you got it? If you want a fight you're gonna have to challenge me with a heck of a lot more enthusiasm than that!"
I guess being number one does mean you can do anything, as long as it's within the law and morally sound.
"That being said...Any time you want to tussle and I'm down. That goes for everyone else in your class. Make sure Mike knows. You and him are a thing right? I didn't get a chance to fight him and I still want to see if he's as resolved as he looked in the finals. And tell Terro whenever he wants his prize to come and get it."
Prize? "...got it. I should head back to my own class now. Thank you for your time." The comment about her and Mike being a thing seemed to go over her head at that moment, with her being more focused on remembering the messages to deliver to him and Terro, as well as the rest of 1-A. With a slight bow, Asuka turned, heading back into the hallway and making for her own classroom... only to spot one of her classmates. Mike, in fact. The girl half-heartedly raised a hand and waved.
"Good afternoon," she yawned. "Sorry about that. Just now, I was talking with Clark from 1-B, and she wanted me to tell you that anytime anyone in 1-A wants to spar with her, she's fine with that. She mentioned you specifically, too. And I also wanted to say, thank you for showing up back... back then. I don't think I ever got the chance to say anything like that."

Carlos Santana is so cool, his guitar playing is as unique and distinct as any famous singer's voice. Also, I was surprised (but not too surprised) to learn that this song is ranked as the second most successful song of all time on the Billboard charts (beaten only by The Twist).
Second most successful of all time? Wow. I'm curious what the first is. *checks and realizes "I don't know that song"*
And now, since I forgot about it last post (thanks for posting Shradow), here's OP's suggestion, classic edition:
10/10, a masterpiece that only two out of the 20 or so covers I've heard can even compare to.

Rick Astley and the BBC Concert Orchestra. Good stuff.
9/10, fixed the mood for my morning. Now I only slightly want to kill everyone.
I kept thinking I got discord notifications while listening to this and I can't tell if there's something in there that sounds like discord or if I'm just gradually descending into mild schizophrenia.
3/10, and that's factoring in that the guitar sounds pretty sick (which was the one thing saving it from a 2/10)

On that note, do you think a Masquerade event for December holidays could work? In this instance, a theme may be more appropriate and effective.
if christmas was in like april or something maybe. december is a bit too close to october for me to say there should be a masquerade event for each month.
Why is your logic so fundamentally flawed?
why is your humor?

"I know I probably looked cool barging into your classroom but I dunno if it's really your thing. Whatcha need me for? I don't do autographs if that's what you're after."
"Er, no, I'm not here for an autograph. I was thinking about our fight during the tournament." It probably wasn't a good idea to pause there. The tournament day... Asuka didn't want to think about it. It was better to not stop there at all, and get directly to what she was on about. "I lost that fight really badly. I can't say I'm aiming to be the number-one hero or anything, but I have my own goals in mind, and I won't be able to reach them if I'm beaten that easily simply because somebody's Quirk makes it hard for me to use mine. Not today, but sometime after we've both gotten stronger, I would like to have a rematch."
"You gotta do what's best for you, right? If your parents could've seen how you came in and saved me and Asuka that day, I bet they would've been really impressed!" Sayuri nodded in agreement. Mike had even won the tournament, on top of all that. Suffice to say, he could take care of himself. "Should we call your parents for you, Mikey?" That one, Sayuri shook her head at. Mike had to do it himself, or else it wouldn't count. Sayuri was about to say that for the others to hear, but before she got the chance...
What is it now, Terro?
"Do you think there's enough room to throw a welcoming party for everyone?"
Please don't. Sayuri couldn't imagine a party with this band of lunatics being anything short of hazardous. She could already feel her ears folding down instinctively just thinking about the racket they'd all make. "D--"
"Mega duh! Who knew Terro would think of such a good idea! I'll help you set up, you can count on me Terro!"
...great. "Of course we do."

Plenty of other heroes were arriving on the scene too now! Through their combined efforts, they seemed to be giving these robots a good thrashing, and the one in front of Nanami even found itself unarmed thanks to that one smart guy whose name escaped her at the moment. However, it still had its shield, and was making to try and crush Nanami with it. With the strength the suit provided her, she was able to at least hold it back some, but she couldn't imagine this would last forever. Nanami stopped pressing against the shield, and in that moment, leapt to the side with all the power her legs could provide on such short notice, just barely avoiding getting caught between the shield and the pavement again.
From there, it was just a matter of hurrying up along its body and punching it in the face enough times before it finally stopped moving. Easy.
Not long after Nanami had disposed of that robot, however, even more showed up, holding their shields up defensively as an even bigger robot showed itself, and spoke in an actual human voice.
“Foolish heroes! Your efforts to stop my perfect stratagem is in vain! As you have been busy capturing pawns, I have already taken your king! You have already lost, now it is just a matter of time before L-City is mine! Now die!”
And then, the entire area was subjected to a barrage of bullets, prompting Nanami to get behind the robot she'd just disabled. She had to get up in that robot's face and destroy those turrets... but if the guy inside it spotted her, she'd be targeted. Sure, she wase pretty sturdy thanks to the symbiote, but she wasn't invincible. Bullets would still hurt, and she wasn't sure how well she'd be able to handle focused fire on her if he decided to do that. Nanami reached for the top set of buttons on her raincoat, and undid them, working her way down its length to reveal the Krohka suit in full.
What are you doing!?
"Camouflage." Not long after she said the word, Nanami seemed to go entirely invisible, with the raincoat on the ground being the only sign she'd been there at all. She knew exactly who she was looking for, and as soon as she saw a lapse in the hail of bullets between her and her destination, Nanami moved out, hurrying along before ducking behind a new piece of cover and revealing herself. She needed some sort of distraction to get over there, and her first thought was the shield guy... Aegis! That was what people called him!
The mask of the Krohka suit peeled back, revealing Nanami's face beneath, as she looked at the other hero and the suit's camouflage let off, revealing her in full. "Hey, I've got an idea. But it um... well, it's kinda dangerous. How tough is that shield of yours exactly? If that big robot was firing mostly at you, would it be able to take that?"

If you were in charge, and after this year's experience and development on the event, what theme would you pick for a future YCM Halloween event?
I was gonna submit a pitch with All-Might as the host, with a theme of splitting monsters into two teams and handing out special awards to the monsters of the winning team. Though I never worked out how I'd split them, or how to judge which team would be deemed the winner.
