[Zeno takes a bite of a juicy golden-yellow apple.]

Gods are so high-maintenance, right? Anyone who got some of the alcohol from Zeno at the firefly picnic, please accept this apology! Zeno was only trying to bear cups and properly embody Hebe, but it didn't work out so well!

[Another, smaller bite. He has to wipe some fruit juice off his face with his sleeve.]

Hebe should be serving nectar, though. Or ambrosia? Some things Zeno reads say nectar is the drink of the gods that makes them immortal, and some say ambrosia is the food, and others say the opposite. Zeno has been looking for ambrosia and nectar for a while now!

Moreso lately. Given some recent events, immortality might be a useful thing to have for shinki as well as gods.

[He quickly takes another, bigger bite of his apple, in order to disguise his distaste for that sentiment. Immortality isn't something to play around with-- just like mortality isn't something to take advantage of.]

Who'd think being dead can't stop you from being killed? [That, that he allows himself to visibly react to. Mostly in a look of disgust and a tone of utter disdain for the murderer.]

The way to obtain immortality is by ingesting something, it seems. Ambrosia and nectar, the elixir of life, amrit, dragon blood, golden apples... so very high-maintenance!

[A bigger, more involved bite of his delicious yellow apple.]

What does everyone think? Is searching for the source of immortality worth it while we try to stop this person? [His voice sounds a little more serious, now.] If the gods who used them exist, surely they must, too-- but is immortality worth the trouble? Is it even the right thing to do?

( The video is normal enough! Urashima props his phone up so it's at a good angle and holds up a poster for everyone to see. )

Look! There's going to be a lot of haunted houses in this park soon! Everyone should go! It looks like a lot of fun!

( And he sets the poster down next to Kamekichi, his always sleeping turtle. Right now, she appears to have a cooling washcloth on her shell. It's hot, guys. Summer is here. Someone get this turtle to a cool pond. )

Hmm... you know, it's that time of year, too! Isn't that fun? Maybe we can tell each other ghost stories! I'll start, I'll start!

Have you ever heard of tsukumogami? They're spirits that live in "things." I think the scariest one is Boroboroton! Boroboroton is an angry futon spirit. If you don't take care of your futon, it'll come to life, throw you out of bed, and cover your face. Isn't that scary? So you should take care of your things before they get angry!

( He isn't very good at this ghost story thing and he has twenty more stories just like this one. )

What do you think?
For those interested, this is a mini prelude for my upcoming player plot so check it out!

At the beginning of the month, Ekko and I began working on a collaborative project that combined our technology as well as our status as time-related gods in this world. The intended goal was to visit or otherwise witness a specific time and location in the "past" of this world's timeline, approximately two months ago.

On July 15th we were able to successfully generate a portal to the past. Unfortunately, there were some unintended side-effects in the present. Rest assured that reality is quite resilient and there should be no significant long-term damage caused by the mishap.

Read more... )

I'm posting this information publicly so that it doesn't become lost or destroyed. Considering that Ekko was killed earlier today and will likely have forgotten all of this if he's revived, I'd rather not let all of this data go to waste if something happens to myself. I'll also be backing up my data somewhere safe while I continue processing what's left.

If anyone has any questions, I'll attempt to explain as best as I can.

[ The video begins at an unflattering upward angle on Gojyo's shell-shocked face. He's holding the phone at about chest height, the camera pointed at him. Judging from his expression, whatever he's looking at beyond the camera's view must be absolutely horrifying.

He opens his mouth to speak, closes it again, then looks down at the camera.

This is for anyone who knew Ekko. Chronos. [ He can't look away from the view in front of him for long -- his eyes are drawn back to it, again and again. ] He's dead.

[ He clearly considers turning the camera toward whatever it is he's been looking at -- it's obvious in the way he glances between the two -- but he decides against it. And there's really nothing more to say, is there? The feed goes dark. ]

(OOC: As of about 3pm on the 28th, nearly all of the remains have been gathered up and buried a the foot of a nice tree. There's no gravesite marker, but it should be obvious to anyone that somebody's recently buried something at the base of that tree, and the grave is shallow enough that if anyone wanted to dig it up, it wouldn't take much effort at all.)

The shortest nights have passed, but the heat of the summer draws near.

There are those who say that that the crossing to the Near Shore is narrow, on nights like these. When the mist and steam rise through the night, and campfires draw out the strange shadows of the forests, talk of ghosts and demons is never far...

Tell me.

What tales have you heard?

[Yuuri looks like he might very well be thinking better of posting on the network at all, and actually moves like he's making for the "off" button for half an instant, but then he pauses halfway there. He's visibly steeling himself for a moment, as he takes a deep breath, exhales it back out, and gets a look of intense determination on his face before he plunges forward.]

Some of the rest of you have found things lying around when you woke up before, right?

It's just that... )

Hello, everyone. It's been a while since I've made an announcement like this, but I'm afraid I've been a little busy lately. I hadn't intended to stop taking clothing commissions, but I've been training with Lady Orihime over the past few weeks to learn more about creating divine raiments and it's been taking up most of my free time. I've finished my first major project, though, so I've got a little more flexibility lately.

I still won't be taking commission work until I've finished my training, but I do have enough time to open the temple up for beauty treatments. The pools in the garden behind the temple have healing properties and help keep skin soft, and I can also do hair and nail work for anyone who's interested. In addition, I'll be teaching a sewing class once a week at Hakkai's school. And once Lady Orihime is satisfied with my progress, I'll be able to start making clothing again too. So if anyone is interested in any of that, feel free to let me know and we can either set up an appointment at Lakshmi's temple or get you enrolled at the school.

[Forrest smiles, nodding at the feed.]

I'll be looking forward to hearing from you all!

Hello everyone. May I please have a moment of your time?
I have had the opportunity to meet or speak with some of you before but for those of you I have not, my name is Kaede. I am exemplar to Fuujin-sama.

Allow me to personally apologize for the mix up that happened earlier today. We have been shifting things around and it was still a work in progress. But those issues have been resolved over the last few hours.

All newly arrived gods should have personally received a notice from myself or been approached and told the name of your shinki by this time. It will be a little strange at first but please do your best to work together.

If there is anyway I can assist any of you further, please let me know.

Thank you,

((OOC: God/Shinki pairing list is here))

Have you ever been in love before? Was it returned?

Do you think some are meant to be alone?

[The video opens up on Fushimi standing by a pile of hay stacked in a vaguely humanoid manner and some throwing knives stuck in it. Fushimi pulls them out and shows the camera that all four of them are pretty normal. He moves back, still visible in the camera, and prepares to throw throw two of them.

They catch fire and the hay-target starts to burn.]

That's normal.

[Fushimi grabs a nearby bucket of water to douse the flames before throwing the next two.

These gain a strange bluish aura that seems to make them sharper or at least more durable. The hay-target is obliterated.

He turns to the camera]

That only happened a few days ago. Someone want to explain it?

[Or: Fushimi freaked out when he saw Munakata's Sword during the event and accidentally called on the blue aura. So that's a thing!]

Grell Sutcliffe, aka The Morrigan, has disappeared. Just thought I should mention it since there should be people around who knew her.

[ Which means that he's without a god again, but he'll try think up some people to ask instead of actually asking or mentioning it. .....And it's been a month. Only a month. What the hell is this, going through two gods in two months. Plus Grell's other shinki had disappeared after D2 was named by her, too. ]

How would you define the word monster?

Cardia is well aware that there are a few people who do know her secret and could probably guess that this is from her. But she's not brave enough to ask something like this without anonymity to hide behind.]

So, that sure happened.

Gotta say, I'm glad to be back to normal. Kinda wish I coulda kept that younger body I was in, though - easiest forty pounds I've ever lost, haha! Anyway, though, I got some things to say.

First off, Izuku - I owe ya, man. I almost made the biggest mistake of my life yesterday, but I remembered what ya told me and I came back from the point of no return. If there's ever anything you need - and I mean anything - you just call on your pal Barry, okay? You literally saved my soul back there. No joke.

And second - you guys gotta see what I found at the zoo. Check this out:

Cut for dumb meme )

Lookit that little guy! He totally knows what's up! 2D > 3D! I can't believe I almost forgot that! I'm sorry, Blueprint-chan! I'll never betray you like that again! I'm gonna buy all your figures and plushies and drama CDs, I promise!

Well, uh, I kinda got off-topic there a little bit. But I'm doin' good, ain't nobody gotta worry about that. Barry Goodman, signing off!

Hello, everyone.

[Luna smiles softly into the video feed, nodding her head slightly by way of greeting.]

It was nice meeting several of you the other day, and I hope you enjoyed the cookies. I'd be happy to meet and talk again if you'd like, now that we've all been returned to our proper ages.

[She holds up another tray of baked goods - this time, it's berry tarts.]

I can offer another delicious sweet to anyone who'd like to stop by. This is a favorite dessert of mine from home, made with a type of berry that only grows there. I recently received some and planted them, so first pick goes to those who helped me with that. But there are plenty here, so feel free to visit if you'd like to try one.

[Her smile turns a little more wistful at this point.]

...And to anyone who's experienced a loss recently - be it your god, a shinki, a lover, or a trusted friend - I'd like to offer my sincerest condolences. I'm afraid bringing back the dead or departed is beyond my power both as the Oracle of Tenebrae and as the Archangel Raphael, but if you've gone through this and need someone to talk to, my door is always open to you. I can't promise miracles, but I can promise to listen, and to pray for their souls.

[She lets out a short breath. That offer was as much for Luna herself as it was for anyone. And her smile turns warm again.]

Thank you for listening. I look forward to meeting all of you, whether it's for the first time or not.

Good afternoon, everyone. Please excuse my change of name: this is Cho Hakkai.

I appear to have reappeared. Although I don't want to give undue hope to anyone who's recently lost a god or shinki, I'd like to announce that my classes will be continuing as usual.

To those who were living upstairs at the school the past few days, I expect you to help me clean up the mess. You know who you are.

[There are animal cracker crumbs everywhere.

And apart from that he's just not going to mention the events of last few days. At least he wasn't an actual child, but....]

Does anyone have an idea what might have caused it? I'm certain I felt something in the air for a few hours before it happened.

Just a heads up for everyone, Reika who was Surtr vanished. The temple's gone too.

I really don't know who her friends were so hopefully they see this. I guess that makes me a pretty poor shinki doesn't it?

Also, if anyone's got some space at their temple for me to temporarily crash at that'd be appreciated. I can offer to cook in return for a cot.
