-------------

[Chikusa actually meant to make this post a while ago, but.... Well. Things happened. Whatever. He's making it now.]

This is for the benefit of what new people who have arrived and all those who ignored Kairi and Yukine's warning here, but I'll repeat it all. It's apparently necessary.

There are three ways to get blight:
1. Touch a person that is blighted.
2. Touch an ayakashi.
3. Feeling guilt.

The first two can be washed away with holy water from a shrine or temple. The last can only be cleaned up reliably if you apologize for your guilt and repent to your god. If you don't and only continue to feel guilt, it will build up.

Shinki carrying too much blight become ayakashi. This should be enough of a deterrent but it's repeatedly been shown not to be.

In the event that a shinki doesn't repent and a god doesn't want to release them, an ablution can help. However, not only is it extremely painful for both shinki and god alike, it requires three separate shinki with extremely powerful borderlines and knowledge of the ablution incantation.

I have taken part in three ablutions in the last two months. I have no faith that people will do the sensible thing. So I'm offering myself for any future ablutions since an ayakashi on the loose in the Far Shore would be annoying. I guarantee that my borderline is reliable and that it won't matter how the targeted shinki reacts.

Just repay me for having to deal with such a troublesome and annoying thing.

[Not making him do anything. Goten just isn't the best at texting and reading is a pain too. Why write and read when you can talk and listen?]

So it wasn't one of the shinki from that temple like the first time? Wowee... you're gonna become an expert at ablutions.

[And noticing the lazy tone and sluggish voice:]

Are you okay?

What kind of payment would you usually require if it does happen again?

It sounds alarming that you have to require payment at this point. It sounds a bit frequent.

Repentance, to be fair, is a complicated thing.

I hope there haven't been any more recent unfortunate incidents?

[personal profile] reformedsinner 2017-07-20 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
I did notice that the count was one higher than the number I was aware of.

[Not that he plans to ask for details, at least not in public. It's a sensitive topic.]

A shame I can't help out, I suppose, but there seem to be enough shinki who know the ritual.

[ It's a good thing Ichiru never feels guilty about anything he's ever done. Not that he really would mention or bring it up. ]

You sound almost heroic,
Chikusa-san. Though, I'm still intrigued by how shinki can easily be affected by blight like some kind of contamination.

How does one obtain the ablution incantation? I'm afraid I've been out of commission for too long.

[ If only he could hear Ichiru chuckling at all of this. ]

Did that offend you?

I suppose you do have a point on it, seeing Shinki are merely-- weapons of Gods after all.
They exist to be used for taking care of Ayakashi.

That simple? I would think something like that would be under a lock and key.

[ He knows you were part of the whole saving process, but given that this was the first day he finally stopped being such a recluse, the timing sucked. He- No, he shouldn't punch the kid, but damn he didn't want this whole thing to be aired like this. ]

you know when your the type to feel guilty about shit most of the time

it kinda spirals when you start doing things you know are wrong. as easy as it is to say all that shit abuot apologizing and admitting all the shit it kinda makes you think its your own business and justify it to yourself

you kinda end up not wanting to be forgivn

Which other shinki have you worked with on these before? You said it takes three, so unless it's been you and the two others you mentioned every time, there'd have to be more qualified to do it.

[Never hurts to be prepared for if things go wrong.]

You don't say.

It's sounding like we're going to be screwed for a while if any of you three disappear, then.

Do many people fall into this issue even after reading the pamphlet they give us? Because by the tone of this message, it sounds like it.

[Although, there was one other reason she was texting him other than asking him a very obvious question with an obvious response.]

How does a shinki learn about the ablution incantation? Is it naturally learned after a while or do we need to do something specific?

If it's as disorganized as the Heavens seems to be in getting shinkis acquainted with their gods, then it must be extremely difficult to find.

[All the sighing at her first impression of the state of everything. She doesn't even want to contemplate the state of the library right now.]

Do you know anyone willing to teach newbies to do it? Sounds like you've been here for a while. Like veteran levels of pro, even!

Three ablutions in the past two months? That seems disgustingly high.

Are these "shinki" really so unmanageable, or are their "gods" just fools?

[Can't exactly vouch whether or not that's too many in a couple months. But at any rate that's just counting the ones that survived, right? It seems the newbie god had more and more things to be weary of.]

Has there ever been a shinki turned into an ayakashi?
