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.

I've had a few days to think, and here I am with my network device again.

I feel like I should say something. Suppose I should make a statement. But then, I've hardly been on the receiving end of reproach; I'm a little surprised. Not that I'm mad for punishment, but I certainly would have understood. Too well.

Because I've been impatient and selfish.

Nothing to be done about that now, of course. I'm just thinking - maybe it counts for something that I said it. It's not an excuse, and it also doesn't mean I'll quietly await whatever punishment one may see fit to bestow upon me - I've got things to do and things to live for and I'm not giving it up and away, sorry.

If... if someone died because of me... that was the one thing I wasn't thinking of. Ah, well.

Neither can I say I'm sorry to have gained what I did.

And then... what else I wanted to say: I'm actually sort of glad to be back. To see you all again.

(OOC: And that is that. As for HMD, my thread can be found here!)

Does anyone remember me telling them about last Saturday, when the visitors came? I'm sure I did my preparations to engage them in conversation, and I'm sure I had a few nice talks --

But I don't remember a single conversation. Not a word. And I was sure I scribbled down some notes, but I seem to have misplaced them, or -- well, I wonder. If it's the City that disposed of them. Just what kind of information did I attain there? I don't remember what Manji said.

This is so frustrating. I might have been this close.

Is this what you do if something happens that you don't like, deities? Nice to know. But that would mean that you miscalculated. Or was it all part of the plan?

Yesterday did not improve my mood. The water was annoying. I did not go out beyond the necessary, because I'm not sure if I dare going out armed with nothing but water balloons.

The first weekend of the month passed and it was not Random Curse Weekend. Again.

(OOC: Thanks to everyone who 4th walled Rin! I truly had a blast. ♥ And yes, I decided to memory-wipe her because she received some hints about the game's OOC workings, and I want to be on the safe side. |D;; Strikeouts are so not there.)

revengeisalie: (Trying to make sense of this.)
If you've been wondering: it's official. Manji has left the City. I checked: his picture was there, nice and clear, in the Hall of the Missing. Probably the worst thing about this is that I know what will happen - that he's not really "better off home", but... but on that day with the many visitors, Dōa said we made it out. I'll just have to count on that. Because if we do, things will somehow turn out alright. Even if we can't tell what the future brings, but I'm not going to worry about that.

And another year older. Seventeen years old now, and an orphan for three.

... I still hope I can go home and find him soon.

On another note, I've become sort of curious about guns. I've seen some really modern-looking ones around the City. They look like they're easier to handle than your regular teppo or tantsutsu back home, too. Not that I know much about those; in fact, I'm not really familiar with them and have only seen a few in my life - not like swords. As a samurai's daughter, swords are sort of natural to me. Now, their use is a different thing... But it really isn't an unexpected development, for sure. All these new devices make everyday tasks a lot easier; even if they seem complicated if you're unfamiliar with them. Guess that's what "progress" really means.

Like these network devices - at first, I was really bewildered by them and only knew that if I spoke to it, I'd eventually get an answer. These disembodied voices were kind of spooky and took some getting used to. But after all, due to this, people can talk over distances and conversation can occur where it normally wouldn't.

My, I'm going off on a tangent again.


Youko, Rokuta-kun and all? Would it be too much to ask to move back in with you? Living here all on my own would be awful lonely. It's okay if you have no room or something.

[private to Umi, Akiha and Enki || unhackable]

Are you alright?

I told you so.

(OOC; Recovery: in progress. Strikeouts: hackable. Fellow reckless rascals of yesterday, I hope this is okay! And Rin's birthday was, uh... sometime this month because I said so. Not today. EDIT: Off to bed I am, will pick up tags tomorrow~.)

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.)

notes || plans in the City || offscreen )

In all the time I've been here, yesterday's curse was maybe the most awful thing that has happened yet. Being married to one's worst enemy is one thing, but that innocents, children as adults, have to know death for a day? That's a gross injustice. Now, we can be glad that it was only a day, certainly - but can you measure death? Isn't a day enough, or rather, isn't a day too much? This isn't something that should happen at all, and it's appalling that it does and is to be expected here.

When I went to Huey-kun's today, I saw words scribbled on the walls near aparment building number one. Two sentences: one was written neatly, like a small work of art, almost, and said "Down with the establishment!". The most curious thing about this would perhaps be that it was written in the Japanese spelling of my time. The other was all but smuddled there and I half had to guess what it said, but it was this: "Fuck you, deities". Looks like some rebellious spirits have been stirred by these curses. It would be a wonder if not. Still, the question is what this would accomplish - probably a punishment for the perpetrator, should the deities be especially miffed by having their walls painted on.

Well! This reminds me - Honda Tohru-san and I have talked, and we thought it might be a good idea to have a party. A feel-good party for everyone who wants a little cheer-up after a curse like this. What does everyone think?

(OOC: Plot is a go! Also, heads up that I might end up backdating a bit, as I will be away over the weekend!)
revengeisalie: (But I wanted candy.)
Aaaahah... wasn't there this policy that said that things said and done under the influence of curses are to be forgiven? If not, there should be. Because, uhm... yes. That was the first one that had me really lashing out at people. This is so embarassing.

Moving on! So these... giant lizards are called "dinosaurs", right? And they're supposed to be extinct? Not that I'd know about any of it. No, sir, we don't know dinosaurs in Edo, Japan. But then I'm getting the general impression that we're pretty backwards, compared to this place. Which is no wonder, either. The closest would probably be dragons, but it's not like anyone I know has ever seen one of those. That would be odd, since they're more the stuff of myths and that.

I'm almost tempted to go and have a look at them, but as they are GIANT WILD ANIMALS, that would obviously be unwise. I just hope no one is getting seriously injured is this... considering I've heard curses can cause people to die... this could get ugly. Let's hope it won't.

You know... this gives me an idea. I wonder if anyone in the City could teach me some medical basics?
revengeisalie: (We need more brains!)
[Clears throat]

Well - first things first! I suppose I owe an apology to all those I scared with my announcement of Youko's disappearance. I hope you all saw that she's come back? She sure is popular here!

[A small sound that may be a laugh.]

Aaanyway! Thank you, again, to... Mister Tony Stark, for the job. It's going well so far.

Now, lately, the City has been subjecting us all to curses of an especially humiliating kind. Really, the theory that it exists to torture us? I'm starting to believe it. It's nothing short of horrible, if you stop and think about it - mind tricks! Body warping! Taking our lives out of our control!

And yet, it's funny, if it feeds on our emotions... no one blames a cat for eating mice.

I don't know, I'm still hoping that someday, and someday soon, I'll finally start seeing the City in its own context, and everything will suddenly fall into place. ... yeah, dream on.

But I'm still finding the library to be a good way to pass time. Except for, maybe, that the amount of topics to read about and the amount of literature available about them is pretty vast. Not to mention that if I explicitly want to read about history, I'm more likely to find a book about gardening in my hands. Oh well. Broadening my horizon, alright. Not that gardening is a bad topic to read about, per se.

And I thiiiink my swordmanship has improved. A little. Maybe.

Hmm... the second month is fast approaching. I wonder if we'll see spring soon?
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!)
revengeisalie: (Parfois j'aimerai mourir.)
Thoughts: Things of Note || Offscreen )

[Clears throat a little.]

Well, now.

Now, that I've familiarized myself with things a little...

Ah, no.

It seems that I am going to stay here for a while. Thus, it would be sensible to acquire a residence and a job. I've never worked before, but... I can always do some household chores. Thus, if anyone has a position free for me, I would be much obliged.

Furthermore, I've gathered that there have been investigations regarding a possible exit from the City - particularly by a Riou-san? I would like to ask if there are currently any organized efforts toward such a thing, and, well... if maybe, I could do something to help.

Thank you to everyone that has helped me so far.


That would be all, for now.

(OOC: Italics = spoken very clearly and with great deliberation. Under the cut is just me tl;dring in Rin's POV. As it says, this it not readable to anyone, as it's, well, her thoughts. Sort of. Strikeouts = things she tries not to think.)
