@Zima; That is usually: commuter, vanilla, JOAT, miller. So which is it? Now I want to know.
@Zima; Why did you seem so eager to claim before when you had votes tied with two other people? Not to mention if the role is so scummy, you'd think you'd try to hide it rather than consistently soft-claim it.

No, I'm not a doublevoter, as far as I'm aware.

Zima and Buoy were the only players voting for Akuraito, so if neither of them are a double-voter, we are dealing with some other role that targeted Akuraito directly (secret-voter, for instance). This distinction is important, since it means we can start looking for an explanation in the motivation for killing Akuraito specifically, rather than just looking at who was voting for her.
Akuraito was pushing hard for a lynch on Zima and had already stated her intention to policy lynch her (Post #142), meaning Akuraito would likely continue to push a lynch against Zima for the rest of the game until a better alternative presented itself. Thus, even if Zima isn't a doublevoter, the fact that the tie was overturned onto Akuraito directly benefitted Zima.
Now, I could WIFOM myself into saying that someone was trying to frame Zima, but she was already setting off several players' scumdars so... why?
@Zima the lynch overturning onto Akuraito directly benefitted you. I posit that either A.) you are not a Commuter, but instead a Double-Voter, or B.) someone else is a Secret Voter and pushed the lynch onto Akuraito to help you.
If A.) Why did you claim Commuter?
If B.) This does not necessarily mean you are scum-buddies. Did anyone communicate with you prior to the lynch?
I have another quibble:
1.) If your role makes you suspicious, then why would lynching you reflect poorly on those who do so?
2.) Why claim that your role makes you suspicious, rather than just claim the suspicious role? Either way, we become suspicious, but with the latter we at least learn what your role is - while the former only communicates to the Mafia that you have a power role without telling the Town anything useful.

The young Arls castle guard Lias Falken marched on past the various stands and tents set up for the contest. It was impressive to see so many people of differing personalities and interests all focused on one goal, but Lias knew that one person would be most impressive of all.
His older brother Rufus would bury the competition with his brains, brawn, and charisma.
As he made his way to the castle gate – distracted with thoughts of his brother’s impending glory – he ran right into a taller figure, both falling down on impact along with a box the other was holding.
“Oww, who the – “
“Lias, please, you must watch where you are going,” Rufus replied, in the matter-of-fact tone he so often used. “Can you imagine if I had been carrying something delicate when you did that?”
Of all people, Lias wished it hadn’t been his brother he’d knocked down. Hurriedly, he began reaching for the wrapped items that had escaped his brother’s box. However, Rufus quickly stopped him.
“No, I can get those myself,” he stated. Though he looked composed as usual, Lias noticed a… slight bit of panic in his voice. Just what is he trying to hide from me, he wandered.
Lias blinked as he watched his brother hastily gather his things and enter the castle, uttering a quiet, “O-kay…?”
The next morning, Lias walked to his brother’s planning room in the castle, to see why he wasn’t out and about with all of the other competitors. After a knock on the door, Rufus appeared, with what seemed to be pastry filling or icing on his mouth.
“I am quite sorry to inform you and the others, but… business with the country has gotten heavy, and I no longer have time to participate in this contest. It is with deep regret I bow out.” Hastily, the door was slammed shut.
As two girls came to the door and dropped off a box quickly (one of the girls being Arls’s princess back from the days as a kingdom), Lias began to put the pieces together. Looking in a box revealed a large order of baked goods and snacks.
Those alchemists… they’d bribed Rufus with the one thing he could never resist: sweets.
It is now Day 2. This phase will end on January 18 at 10:00 PM EST. You may now vote.
