Date: August 13th

[Kairi has a blanket around her shoulders with stars on it and in her hand is a note. Slowly, she puts the note down and pulls the blanket up a little more with one hand.]

Thank you - to the people who've come by Hajime's temple to see me. That's where I've decided to... go, I guess is the best way to say it.

[Her smile tilts up a little.]

It just seems so sad... that I started to remember more about them now that they're gone. More about them and where they hopefully went home to.

'There are many worlds, but they share the same sky' - that was part of the note. The... one I can't seem to stop reading.

[Then she lowers her head.]

I've responded so many times when shinki talked about losing their gods... I never thought...

[She rubs her nose a little and sniffs, then lifts her head back up again.]

But Hajime's a great friend and I'm glad she's my goddess now. I'm glad we were friends first. It... helps.

[[OOC: Feel free to handwave your character having stopped by to see Kairi either at Forrest's temple or Hajime's. Sora & Roxas disappeared on July 30th in-game, so it's been 2 weeks. She was at Forrest's for one week and Hajime's the second week.]]

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. ]

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.

[ After settling in a new shinki and checking on Mikoto, Tatara takes a moment to himself to sit outside in the sunset and talk everything out. No video this time, friends -- he doesn’t feel like showing his face. And he has a valid reason for that. ]

Hello everyone. For those of you who might not know yet, Johan Andersen is gone. I went by his temple today to find it missing. From what I know, this means he’s gone home.

He was a dear friend of mine who will be sorely missed. He was--...

[ ...more than just that. And now, he’ll never know.

Tatara’s voice breaks a bit there, prompting a pause. But this isn’t a time for mourning, he reminds himself; he really should stop talking about Johan as though he’s lost when for all he knows, this is a happy affair. For all he knows, Johan got to go home -- back to his family, his friends, all those people who missed him dearly; perhaps even more than Tatara will. So after the noticeable pause for breath, an airy sort of chuckle follows. ]


I know wherever he is now, he’s happy.

[ That’s right -- wherever he is, I’m sure he’s just fine. ]

I took his shinki, Sakon, home to my temple. He’ll be with me from now on. I’ll keep him safe.

[ That’s the important part: Taking care of those left behind; those who are sad, (even if he is, too). He takes a breath, and even over audio only, one can practically visualize the forced smile he dons. ]

I guess that’s it! See? Everything works out in the end.

Somehow, it always does.

[This name isn't very familiar but only because he's one of those types who doesn't use the network as much. Other than the surprise cat video a bit back but this time it's much different than harmless and accidental fun. The video feed is actually showing what appears to be a kitchen but with a very busted up countertop. The hell happened here?]

Ah, may I inquire if there is someone who knows some form of masonry? The past couple of days have been a bit chaotic and my temple did take some brunt damage.

[He's not going to mention about the various things that were also destroyed such as furniture, dishes, and Halone knows what else. Those kind of things he can handle just fine; the countertop however is a different matter. Also Gravity spells kind of suck for fixing things.]

(The proper voice of a young lady might seem at odds with Dali's wild spirit, yet one should not underestimate the connection Sansa has made with her goddess. Her words, at least, reveal how deep her resolve for balance goes:)

Murder should never be tolerated. If one must hunt, do so wisely and only if you are in need of food or warmth. To do otherwise is to waste a life and we mustn't forget that life - even in a place devoid of it - is irreplaceable.

(Now onto the specifics - as dictated by a vengeful deity:)

For those responsible for the atrocities, they must suffer like their victims. Anything less would not be appropriate.

My temple, as ever, is open as a haven for those who mean no harm. If you fear for your life - such that it is for us - you can take refuge there and trust that you will be unharmed.

We are deities. Surely we can do better than this.

Hey! Um... so I've been thinking about this for a couple of days, but I heard....

[He trails off before regrouping. He should've rehearsed this before he started recording it, but he's got no idea how to go back and delete and re-record now. Onward!]

I heard I used to be a god! I mean, I don't remember, obviously, but if I really was, I guess I should say I'm sorry. And I look forward to meeting you all again. And, um.

[Really should have rehearsed.]

I don't owe anybody money, right?

[He laughs uncomfortably and rushes ahead.]

-- Anyway I guess that's about it! Nice to meet you all again! Sorry I forgot!

[Nailed it. Before he can think better of this whole idea, he hastily stops the recording and hits send.]

Posted: July 14th

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?

It's Zeno's first time posting to the BBS! Because Zeno's been called out! It looks like it happened here in this post but let Zeno know if it happens anywhere else, all right?

Such as this one right here.

On the one hand, it's good to leave a note like this where it's easy to see, since Zeno forgets sometimes that you can use your voice on these phones. On the other, Zeno has no guarantee it's the same person who picks up the response! It might be more than one, even a whole group. Considering that first question about gods dying, Zeno actually begins to doubt if this was a person at all. Having met fish ayakashi before, has an ayakashi ever been known to possess a BBS? Zeno wonders, since going to meet this person did end with something failing to attack Zeno.

[He's actually quite certain this individual is an individual, probably a god or shinki of some description, but throws a little smoke in the air anyway. It might make the person underestimate him a little bit more, if they think he's completely wrong.]

Whatever the case, please be careful when you're talking to strangers who have something to hide! Of course we all hide things, and some of us are really good at it or really need to do it for a good reason, but if it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck and it goes against your better judgment, maybe stay away from the redwood forest.

ETA:

      Also, also! Congratulations to any new couples from Tanabata!

[ The feed clicks on, showing a red and white comet goldfish aimlessly milling about a tiny fishtank. (For those interested, the video likely literally looks something like this, sans soothing muzak.)

There is no footage of the videographer himself; no face shown on the screen save for perhaps fleetingly in the tank's reflection. Tatara's voice is audible, however, his words very easily discerned. He sounds a bit awed, perhaps almost smitten. ]


Aah, would you look at her! She's lovely, isn't she~?

Trouble is, I've had her for a while now, and I can't seem to think of a name for her. Would anyone be kind enough to help me? Just reply here with your ideas, and I'll pick the one that best fits her.

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.

Something occurred to me today and I realized that practically no one has mentioned it. We all know by now that sometimes we just randomly get items from home, usually in the strangest places, but there's something that I feel should be mentioned.

There are times where a shinki will suddenly remember something from before their death. This does not cause them to turn into ayakashi. I don't know what causes it, but one of my shinki, who is my best friend from home, woke up a few weeks ago and suddenly the day we met back home as well as several other events.

[Trying to keep this short here.]

He hasn't turned into an ayakashi with this knowledge. I don't know why he hasn't turned into an ayakashi, though I'm obviously not complaining, and since it's been a few weeks I can safely say he's unlikely to. Shinki, if you suddenly remember something, you should be okay. Gods, do not attempt to cause these memories yourself. There is something different about the shinki remembering these things on their own and us gods telling them these things. I would also assume that if Shinki A remembers something about Shinki B and tells B about it, B will turn into an ayakashi.

Anyway, if there are any shinki out there who woke up with memories they didn't have before and were panicking I hope this helps.

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.

Alright, here we go.

[The video clicks on to show Izumo, who looks as if he’s just finished running a marathon. Behind him, it’s obvious he’s standing what appears to be an abandoned temple before the video moves to the side, showing Goten.]

Here, Goten.

Are you sure it’s on? [Goten peeks into view, looking at the screen with wide eyes. His hair is messier than usual, sweat beading under his bangs. But his smile is big as ever.]

Hey everyone! Izumo and me did some training together. It’s a lot of fun so you should try it to. Izumo is one of the strongest people ever and he can get you stronger too! Right, Izumo? C’mon you gotta tell them or no one is gonna want to come!

[Izumo adopts an expression of feigned exasperation, though anyone could see the fondness in his eyes as he ruffles Goten’s hair.]

You might be exaggerating there, Goten. [But he does look at the video, a smile on his face.] But anyone’s welcomed to come and train with us if you’d like. The more, the merrier.

Yeah! But you should train with us! Sparring, shinki stuff, any of that stuff is good! It doesn’t matter how good you are at it either cause we wanna get stronger too and the only way to do that is to keep training!

[Goten’s fist shoots into the air as he gives a quick nod.] But you gotta be nice cause Izumo sorta shy about his powers.

[He tilts his head back to flash a playful grin up to the older shinki before looking back to the video, waving.]
