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

[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.

( 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 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?

Um.

[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!

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.

My. This place is rather lawless, isn't it?



[Private to Farfarello:]

You can't call it getting away with murder if you can't even get the murder part right.


[Private to Scully:]

I think it goes without saying some of the recent events here are worth looking into. Where would you like to start?


[Private to Nagi:]

I have a list of individuals I want you to conduct surveillance on. Is this something you are able to do for me?


[Private to Chikusa:]

Do you think there's any factors that determine if an individual comes back as a god or shinki? Or even if they come back at all?

Do you want to find out?

Hello,

For those of you to whom I've not yet become acquainted, my name is Naoto Shirogane, and I'm one of the newer shinki who arrived here a little over a week ago. This is my first time posting to the BBS, so please excuse me if the length of this starter entry is perhaps a little longer than what is typical. First, I would like to thank those of you who I did have the pleasure of meeting at the Tanabata festival. You each have my sincerest gratitude for providing me your time and assistance as I attempted to get my bearings on that first day. There was a lot to process all at once, so your patience with me was most appreciated.

Second, I would like to pose a question at large purely as a point of curiosity. I've noticed that I seem to have a lingering sense of hunger that is never quite possible to satiate. I do not wish to cause alarm, as it's not exactly painful to any degree. Really, it's just an odd sort of sensation that I find distracting from time to time. Has anyone else ever felt something similar? If so, what did you do to alleviate it?

I have an inquiry for the other shinki today in regards to an issue that has been picking at me for quite some time. In addition to the memory loss we all arrive with, is it common to experience a loss of, or severe dampening of emotions and the ability to express them?

[Yuri almost never shows her face on the network, literally or in text. She prefers to lurk and read, but she knows this is the fastest and most effective way to reach a lot of people.]

Has anyone-- [She begins, and then stops, gaze lowering a moment. It's a question she shouldn't have to ask. She knows he's gone, can feel it, but maybe he's not gone entirely. Maybe they just moved him to a new god, again. Maybe there's still hope.

So she takes a breath, sighs, and tries again.
] Has anyone seen Hakkai? His phone's disconnected. And... I can't feel him anymore... But I thought, maybe, he'd just gone to another god, or... [She makes a helpless gesture and shrugs, shaking her head. 'I don't know,' she seems to be saying.]

If not then I'm afraid he's probably-- Gone. Entirely. [And damn if that doesn't absolutely gut her to say. She's always been good at masking her emotions, but she closes her eyes here and takes a breath, giving herself away entirely to just how badly it effects her.]

...Thanks.

[What? He doesn't sleep!]

I haven't been here long but my god vanished before I ever got to meet him which makes me wonder: what the hell is a shinki good for? What are we supposed to do? Is there any point in serving a god if they can just vanish?

Hello. This is Midoriya Izuku for those of you who don't know me well. I've been talking with a few people, and it seems that while newly minted gods often get somebody to guide them through their arrival, shinki aren't so lucky.

I think it would be good if we could compile a resource for newly arrived shinki. There's no reason they need to be so confused upon their arrival.

As I'm not a shinki, I don't know everything that should go into it. Could those who are please say what they would have liked to know earlier?

Thank you for your time.

[The camera bleeps on to Chikusa adjusting it on the steps of Axel's temple, where it faces out to the nice grassy areas in front of it. A goat is in the background nibbling away, but Chikusa mostly ignores the animal as he takes a step back. Still bent over, he pulls a red rubber ball out of his pocket and holds it up where it can be seen clearly. After keeping it there for a second, his hand falls to his side and he walks off a bit further onto the grass.]

[Turning around, he tucks his hands into his pockets again and gives out a call.]


Ken!

[Patiently, he waits a few minutes, and then there's the sound of the door by the camera opening before Ken walks into view straight towards Chikusa. It doesn't seem like he's noticed the phone or that it's recording, and sharp eyed viewers might notice he has a dog collar around his neck now.]

What're you doing all the way out here if you want me, byon?

[Chikusa suddenly pulls his hand out of his pocket, revealing the bright red ball, which immediately snags Ken's attention. Idly, the bespectacled teen moves it side to side, watching as Ken watches it, something which only seems to be getting the blond worked up more and more.]

[And then, Chikusa abruptly pulls his hand back and flings the ball off into the distance.

Ken makes a startled, borderline offended sound, because he clearly knows what Chikusa is up to - but he's also taking off after the ball, even as he yells.]


Dammit, I'm not a dog, shitty kappa!

[Evidence suggests otherwise.

[For a second, Chikusa just stares where Ken is chasing after the ball offscreen before he heaves out a sigh and starts to slump back to where he's left his phone. Picking it up, he stares directly at the camera, mouth sort of quirked- ]

[The ball suddenly slams into the side of his head and, as the phone drops to the ground, Ken's triumphant laughter can be heard.]

[Here's Johan, a sheepish expression masking his face as he greets everyone.]

There wouldn't happen to be anyone busy right now, is there? There's an issue.

[He moves the video to show behind him a swarm of jellyfish ayakashi trapped behind what appears to be a borderline.]

This guy [He shows Chikusa, who's sitting against a wall.] is currently keeping them behind a borderline to prevent them from escaping. Appreciate it if someone can come by and Rend these guys before they break free.

[Otherwise, who knows what can happen.]

[ Orihime is standing several yards in front of her small house, but the river behind her might explain why she moved away from it. Even from this distance, there is din of water swirling through the currents. She holds her device like a lady might hold a mirror to apply makeup.

More importantly, she appears to be smiling.]


I have been thoroughly surprised by the generous nature of several new gods and shinki. As it stands, our preparations will be complete in time for Tanabata, which is the 7th of this month if you were not made aware as of yet as another newcomer, and thus long before Obon as well.

In gratitude to the hands that were extended in service to the Heavens - and, if I may, humbly include myself - I wish to repay this kindness. All gods have their talents and mine is the creation of splendid divine raiments for just such a festival as Tanabata and Obon.

If you are one of the new gods or shinki and do not yet possess such, you may seek me out by the Amano river before dusk falls tomorrow and I go in turn to host the Heavens' Tanabata festivities.

[The video cuts to Axel, smiling tiredly. He must be in bed, given that there are pillows behind him and he's covered up to his chest in sheets. It's all white, looks pretty idyllic.]

Sorry for that... Extended absence. I collapsed while caring for the sacred fire. Gave my shinki a bit of a scare.

[He laughs a little, but it turns into a cough.]

Basically, I burned myself out. Any of you have advice on what to do while you're supposed to be resting? I'd appreciate it; nice as this vacation is, I'm gonna go stir-crazy here.
