Warning: This post treats the curse's subject in a half-serious manner. Parents are mentioned. Be careful if that squicks you!

[Leaving the house today may just be the worst idea Rin has ever had. But she's running out of rice, and you can't ever not have rice. As far as she's concerned. So even if the very new notion that the people all around her are looking quite... tasty today is making her sick through and through, she has to brave it. If she wants to have any hope of just stuffing herself full with the newly bought, fresh rice (think of the fragrant, white rice!) and -- not meat, vegetables, and tofu, that is filling and delicious -- then there is hardly a choice.

Thus today finds her walking down the street quite immersed in trying not to look too long at anyone, and to think of how awesome rice and tofu are, and to think many, many distracting thoughts. Which means that no, she is not at all looking where she's going. Hear, she's even humming a little song, which the device just so happens to record.]

Rain's falling, rain's falling,
mother's coming--

[No, not that one. Mother and today -- for a moment, she stands still with her hand pressed to her mouth to keep the bile down.

Nothing about people, then. What else -- flowers. Flowers are always good. Never mind how the heads they often often adorn look that much -- NO.]

Spring has come, spring has come, where has spring come?
It's come to the mountain, the village, the fields.

Flowers are blooming...

[And a click off.]
revengeisalie: (If you enter the lion's cave.)
At first, all you see is darkness, and the darkness is total. Not a thing discernible - except for sounds. Wet sounds, like water dripping somewhere far away, and sounds of breathing, not loud, but clearly audible. Rin, she tries to move in this darkness and kicks a few pebbles loose.

A feeling of danger reigns over the room - and it is somewhere inside something, judging by the sounds and the odd feeling of walls closing in on you.

Then, kaboom! Light literally explodes into the room, and in plain view to the front is a cavern tapering to a tunnel, and in that tunnel, doors start opening. One following swiftly after another, there are also creatures coming out from behind those doors. They look like large, humanoid otters, their faces a mere caricature of an animal.

They start moving, back to where Rin is standing.

[text || private to Youko]

Youko... I don't know if they came for you, too... but in any case, I feel the need to tell you.

You're the person I cursed.


[switch to video]

[The feed is sweeping over a view of the... thin air as Rin's voice talks, off-screen.]

Curiosity got the better of me, after all. Had to see what this barrier is like. Still not actually visible, except for the rips. ... I'd have to get closer to see them clearly.

... wait, this thing isn't even --

[The camera is shaken a little, but then it sinks down to give way to a view of the ground. There's sand and some weeds there, in case one might be interested.]

No way.

Okay, Rin, this is the time when you get the hell out of here.

Message to the Curse Brigade: Having now laid eyes on the matter myself... well, there's no way this is for real.

(OOC: Seeing creepily surreal visions of pinwheels and finding it all very suspicious. Action for anyone who... might be there.)
revengeisalie: (You've got to be kidding me.)
[The video flickers on to show one Rin lying on her futon, with her sleeping yukata a little disheveled and sliding down her shoulders.

But what is this! Lying next to her is one Setsuna F. Seiei in an equally unkempt state, with chocolate smudges on his face.

Slowly, Rin stirs. She props herself up on one arm, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes with the other hand.

Then, her eyes widen, almost to the point where you might think they're going to pop out of her head soon, and scrambles to sit up.]

... hnngh!

[She only makes that strangled noise, memories from the previous day flooding her, unsure what would be worse: not apologizing profusely right now or waking Setsuna up. And so she sits there, aghast and a little helpless.]
revengeisalie: (That I'm strong for myself.)
Hey, October is over. They could stop it now. But no, of course not, can't grant the poor subjects some respite - that won't do at all! Instead, it has to be a full-on war. I wonder how long this one will go... has to be a curse, has to be. This, and the amount of it - it's too sudden. It's been two days already, and not even on a weekend, so I think it might take longer...

Sheesh. Of all the things, really.

And so, about those flyers I've seen around, and not just me for sure: I think now would just be the right time to exercise some damage control. Get a spot to hide and create a sanctuary for the uncursed; try to somehow stop this madness - whatever. But something's gotta be done.

As if this wasn't enough... that's what you get for giving them the benefit of doubt.

(OOC: Unaffected and all the more exasperated for it. Curse Brigade, I hope this is alright! Strikeouts are muttered... even more than the small font.)
revengeisalie: (I did it.)
[A small cell with a signifantly smaller window which only lets in spare light. Huddled in a showdy corner beneath said window is Rin, breathing heavily and irregularly, eyes diluted.]

... hnngh. I get it.

[Her voice is quiet and a little shaky at the beginning, but then becomes steady as her breathing calms down.]

You won't let me out of here, right? Not before I do what you want, before I say the words you want, before...

Well. I plead guilty, I do. I can say that. There's... [She has her eyes downcast.]

... there's blood on my hands, no denying that.

However. Half those cases turned out to be something of self-defense, and Renzō...

If Renzō wants to judge me for what I did, that's his due right. I'll grant that to him... and him only.

I am not going to give up myself or my freedom to anyone else for this.

[Now, she's looking directly at the camera. There's a flicker in her eyes that says she's noticed that it's recording.]

Because there are things that are more important to me.

(OOC: Been psychologically bombarded with an ever-rewinding replay of Anotsu telling her he's doing it all for grandpa, with the occasional memory of mommy dearest thrown in for good measure. \o/ Will escape later on today.)
revengeisalie: (Desperate measures.)
[Her feet make a quiet sound as she walks down the hall to Manji's room. She knocks on the door twice, then opens it and starts talking.]

Manji, how about we -- ... ?

[The door gives way to an empty room, and Rin pauses in her tracks.]


... MANJI?!

[Another sweeping glance at the room, then she turns around and walks to the kitchen and living room. No trace of Manj here, either. She stands, one finger near her mouth and her brow creased in thought.]

No note, no nothing? He would've told me if he'd gone out, and I would've heard him leaving his room anyway; and I would've noticed if...

[Her eyes widen, and hastily, she turns around again - searches all rooms and comes up empty; lastly goes back to Manji's room. She opens the window and inspects the surroundings for signs of a fight - but they are as they ever were. Propped up on the windowsill, Rin whispers to herself, the shock of realization creeping onto her face.]

No... No! This... can't be happening... right? Right?

[A quiver catches her lip, but she holds it, keeps herself together, and pushes her body away fromt he window with a vengeance, runs a few steps - and stops, closing the window. She tries to walk to the living room calmly, but her legs betray her, and she can barely sit down to scribble a note, then hurries to the front door, donning her straw sandals. Finally, she opens the door, steps through, and slams it.]

(OOC: Hubby left :(. Cue a few days of moping. Action if you want to come across her in the street.)

revengeisalie: (Sure whatever.)
So, that about the dreams... was a curse? Hmm. Well, now you know. I'm not entirely sure if I'm comfortable having my dreams hung out for everyone to see, but I'm beginning to think it's wasted energy to get upset about everything the City likes to throw at us. Really! I'm getting so sick of it all.

Oh well. Maybe the rain will grant us a little respite. Time to be at home and relax. I sure went to work as usual today, but I'm so glad I'm working only part-time. I like having time for other things, now. I still have a pile of books to read.

... 's really funny how my habits have changed here.


Apr. 16th, 2009 05:24 pm
revengeisalie: (Tch.)
After I issued several wishes, mostly to do damage control on the first wish, I think I'm in a relatively alright place right now, and I certainly learned my lesson. Wishing today is indeed bad. What is this, the City's way of nonverbal wisecracking?

Uhm, Manji, sorry for the damage I did. Will bring that in order tomorrow. As for right now, unless I find out an idiot proof way to get myself to a normal state, I guess I'll be stuck in some slightly awkward positions. Right now, I cannot get up, as I wished to sit down. Yes, I tried. So I'm sitting on the floor and... thinking.

Looks like working will be impossible, too.

[private to Youko || unhackable]

... Youko? It's maybe an odd time to remember, but... I have a question.

(OOC: "I wish I could just fight", followed by "I wish I could stop", "I wish I could go" and "I wish I could sit down". Some minor damage in the apartment, a few disarranged things here, a broken vase there, nothing bad.)
revengeisalie: (But I wanted candy.)
[Rin is sitting in the living room, on the armchair they got along with the couch - on which Manji is currently lying with his eyes closed, snoring a little. The window is open, letting in fresh air and the noises from the street. A book lies forgotten in her lap; she's gotten to thinking.

Curses, curses and curses. She's been affected to be uncomfortably friendly with Anotsu, of all people, again; something she tries to push away, but can't help mulling over in idle moments like this.

Then all her friends who are regularly affected.

She hasn't talked about it with Manji yet. She hasn't talked about a lot of things with him. Maybe now is the time.

Her eyes wander over to Manji's sleeping figure.]

revengeisalie: (The bright side of things.)
So one of the weirder curses has passed, and things are more or less back to normal. I met some people from home and some... interesting people, and I think I came out the better for it, all things considered. I'm in less of a hurry to go home now - but I still want to.

Huey-kun, that movie really was quite interesting! Even if there were some jokes I just plain didn't get. But movies are pretty fascinating things in themselves. A play, recorded so that you can view it all the time! But they made it so it looks more real than a play. I definitely want to watch some more movies while I'm here!

And I think I'm in a mood for the beach today. I've never really been there. I remember once going to a beach with my parents when I was little. That was special - Edo has a harbour, but not so much a beach.

Sooo, Manji? Youko? Anyone?

[private to Anotsu || viewable to Manji || unhackable]

Uhm, hey. How do I go about this...

How about we make peace? I'm tired of revenge. I have better things to do with my life.

What do you think?

(OOC: Cursed? Oh, but how.)

revengeisalie: (Anyway I can try anything.)
private || thoughts || offscreen )

Funny, isn't it? How it isn't until something affects you deeply and personally that you truly realize its horror. Thank you kindly, City. That was a lesson for life. If I underestimated you before - well. I'm not going to do that any longer.

Moving on. Does the police keep an eye on types like this? It would be a relief to know.

Thank you, Rosella, for calling the communicator's writing function to my attention. As can be seen, I have practiced diligently. It recognizes most of what I'm writing on the first attempt. I think I'll use that from now on - everyone must be so sick of hearing my voice by now.

Youko, or Ryōga-kun, how about some training? I could use that.

(OOC: Following this and that. Flatmates may have noticed her coming home around midnight in a very gloomy mood. Spent some time locked in the bathroom, swearing, crying and retching. Link is IC. And yep, this entry is written. The time of eternal voice posting is over.)
revengeisalie: (Will you be able to die properly)
Excuse me, everyone - I imagine yesterday might have been eventful for most and rather taxing for some, but this is urgent.

[Clears her throat.]

Has anyone seen Nakajima Youko? Japanese, red hair, tan skin?

She's been gone without a word or trace as of this morning. I'm worried. Youko, if you see this, please answer.

(OOC: In reaction to this. :<)
revengeisalie: (The world is breathing.)
I... have acquired a bottle of beer. It really does taste awful.

A month has thirty days, and we're already on the fifth - so that would leave 25 days. That means four bottles of this stuff a day.

... I'm really not sure if I can or want to do this.

Think positive, think positive... it can only make me stronger! If anyone ever tries to inebriate me, I'll be prepared!


I've seen several posts on the network that speak of defiance. I'm not sure I want to defy Gods - if that's what they are, indeed. So many questions still - but the most important always remains how do I get out. I'll do well to remember that, and start investigating for earnest. Thank you for your help so far, Riou-san. I'm much obliged.

Hmm... for those who know Tohno Shiki-san, has he been, ah, in any way unusual lately? Last time we talked, he seemed in a strange mood.

And - and I heard there's been incidents going on. Murders.


It just never stops.

(OOC: Waaah, and off to class it is! Will tag later! Definitely back now!)
