See them?

[The image comes into focus, revealing a pair of teens holding hands as they walk side by side down a quiet neighborhood street. They both appear happy. Laughing. You might even say they're in love. At the start of a new school year, it seems the perfect time for this sort of thing.]

... He prayed for her to love him.

[The young couple fade in and out of focus as he speaks, blurred and fuzzy around the edges. Behind the camera there's a scoff.]

I didn't know if I wanted to, but I gave it to him anyway. And now she'll love him until I tell her to stop.

[Finally they disappear around a corner... just as another boy appears into frame. He pauses, but the couple doesn't notice. He stares over his shoulder, but the couple doesn't notice. ... He has his eyes on the young girl. But she doesn't notice.]

That's who she used to love. ... He doesn't know why she left. Probably never will, even if he still loves her.

[After a minute of watching the two's backs, the boy finally turns around to continue trudging down the street alone, his head hung and eyes focused towards his shoes. Rin waits for him to also disappear out of frame before continuing.]

Tell me-- [a deep breath] --am I dangerous?

[ Pursuant to a conversation he’s had with Shizuo, Tatara’s become curious about a particular topic he was a bit too exhausted to delve properly into, (especially with a man he’d just met).

But, who better to ask than the Far Shore?

So Tatara flips on the video feed, his face clearly visible. He’s seated at some kind of breakfast bar. a countertop covered with odds and ends of knickknacks. A fish, (who may or may not be familiar to some), in a small tank swims in the background. ]


Good morning~!

A friend recently mentioned something to me -- something called an “ablution”.

Previously, I knew only that they’re for a shinki who has been very bad, and blighted their god. But, I wonder... exactly how bad would a shinki have to be to warrant an ablution? What’s the process like? What are the chances of success?

[ He pauses here. In immediate retrospect, this all looks pretty bad, doesn’t it? So Tatara waves his hands at the camera feed for a moment, shaking his head. ]

I’m not asking for myself, of course! [ A patter of nervous laughter. Neither of his shinki have done nothing wrong, he promises! ] Just curious, that’s all!

(A pack of wolves is surely a welcome sight? No? They smile and nip at one another, showing teeth that can easily rend a man apart.)

Robb, do not tease your sister so! (Sansa holds out her hand, walking into frame. The largest wolf breaks free of his free-spirited family and trots up to her. He is rewarded with fresh morsels of meat and a good ear scratch.)

Arya, I have not forgotten you. (Another wolf - this one smaller and darker - edges closer to receive her treat.)

Jon, Bran, Rickon, you too. (Each wolf takes after their namesake in some way: Jon is white, Bran has reddish-brown fur and Rickon is the smallest of the pack, barely out of the puppy stage. Sansa removes her gloves after feeding them and drops a kiss on Robb's head.)

Do not stray far from the temple. I like hearing you sing at night.

[ So after waking up from a vivid dream that he's becoming more and more convinced isn't a dream at all, Yata sits in the barn at Roy's temple late this morning having a minor panic attack. Unsure what he's supposed to do about this and when the first person he would normally go ask is the one person he can't go ask, he does the obvious thing. At least for him.

He flips open a video feed to the BBS. ]


So, uh, I know this has been talked about on here before but it hasn't really been relevant to me before now... [ Which, in Yata-speak, means he didn't pay attention. ] ...but.

What do you do if you wake up and suddenly remember something - or someone - from before. And you're pretty sure they don't? I mean. That's bad, right?


(( OOC Note: Both Fushimi and Yata have woken up with the same memory, Fushimi is just the sort to freak out about it privately while Yata is not, hence this post. Both characters may be tagging back replies in this thread however, and both are open to contact or action logs as well, just specify what/who you want in your starter ))

New here, or pretty sure I am. I might have been here before. I remember a guy who was a god, my god, but I just got here and I'm pretty damn sure I ain't no shinki.

It's giving me a serious case of the Twilight Zone feels here. Anyone else had this happen?


[A certain someone got themselves dead after Sora left and has come back as a god. Memory loss, yay!]

Also, does every temple come with a cat or three? The horse at least makes sense.

[And may have been left some pets.]

[The morning of July 31st, all residents of Mielikki's lodge will receive a rather rude awakening in the form of one Barry Goodman jolting up in bed and screaming. And as a fun bonus for everyone else, in his panic he knocks his phone off the side table next to the bed, so everyone else in the Far Shore gets to witness this fit too. Thankfully, he sleeps in shorts and a t-shirt, so at least he's clothed. What he is not, however, is quiet.]

UWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!

[Throwing the covers off, Barry jumps out of bed and immediately falls to his knees right in front of the phone. Viewers are treated to a low perspective shot of him balling his fists, raising them into the air, and screaming into the heavens as tears begin to stream down his face.]

MAMORI! I'M SORRY! I FAILED YOU!

[This will especially troublesome for Hiyoko and Hibiki, at least until he calms down. There's enough guilt here about something to cause problems, but he's also constantly apologizing about it, so it won't actually progress very far. But the way he's pinballing between guilt, sorrow, and a deep desire for repentance is sure to cause some discomfort.]

UNCLE BARRY STILL LOVES YOU, MAMORIIIIIIII~!

[...Still, someone should probably do something about this.]

[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 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!]

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,

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?

[ As the feed clicks on, it shows a young man with totally stylish and gravity-defying dirty blond hair in a black cloak sitting in some kind of papasan-style chair with an acoustic guitar in his lap. Demyx lazily plucks away at it, strumming out what sounds loosely like Modest Mouse’s “Float On”. ]

So, I finally did it!

[ Pausing from his strumming, he holds his wrist up the camera way too closely, turning it this way and that. ]

Look! See? No more name! Which means no more god. And no more work, no more training... which means no more gross sweating. Ew.

[ Seriously, call him when it’s winter, please. He pulls a face, but then sits back again and resumes strumming, picking back up where he left off. ]

Bishamonten says I’ve gotta get a new one, but maaaan... [ He sighs heavily, shoulders slumping. ] I just don’t wanna, yanno?

[ In truth, he’s still a little bummed that Riku basically shot him down. Now there was a god he could’ve gotten behind! But, oh well. He’s not going to mention that, or let it weigh on him much. Just means more vacation time for him, right? Right! Except... ]

But she says if I don’t do it myself they’ll just stick me with someone again. Someone who might not like me, like last time.

Man... can’t I just like, hang out here and play music, and not do combat stuff? I’m totally not comfortable with it anyway...

Okay, with Obon coming up quickly I was wondering if anyone needs a date to this celebration.

Us shinki don't really have a connection to our ancestors anymore and we wouldn't remember them even if we did. So I figure it'd be better to hang out with someone you have a bit more in common with, right?

    [ When the video starts, it's on Souji specifically. He gives the camera a bit of a wave with the hand not holding his phone, his temple's open kitchen and dining area behind him. ]

    Hello, everyone. I've been working on lists for study groups, and references for them as well as investigative notes, but I wanted to pose a different offer this time. Hence, why this post will have attachments in the form of photos rather than text this time.

    [ Follow his trek, everyone, through the kitchen and under the free standing stairs, to one of his numerous tatami rooms that lead outside on the first floor. He's immediately greeted by a chorus of meows and chirps, any sort of noise a cat might make when pleased at a person, and that's where he comes to a stop. ]

    I've been picking up stray cats, as well as cats from the shelter that were having a hard time finding families, and have been working on socializing them. All of them are in good health at the moment, have had all their vaccines and the like, and are fixed - except one, but more on her in a moment. You see, I've been hoping to find them permanent homes, either here or on the other Shore. Pretty much all of the ones I have are currently ready for that, so I was wondering if there was anyone that was maybe considering a cat for a companion.

    Anyone that isn't homed is going to go up for adoption to the other Shore, but I figured you all could have first dibs.

    If you just want to come and see them, you can do that, too. The aforementioned special cat is actually a new mother, so there are newborn kittens here now.

    [ This is when he turns the phone around, camera focused on the cats around his feet. That's the end of the video!

    As mentioned, there are pictures attached. What these cats look like are up to dealer's choice, if they wanted to adopt one or coo over one in particular, and Souji literally has enough variety that any picture would do.

    ... he also probably has enough cats for anybody that would want one. It's gotten to that point now.

What wishes do you desire the most? Are they simple? Complex? Have your aims grown in magnitude since you were made a god? Have they decreased since you were made a shinki?

I have noticed a certain hierarchy, you see, and I mean no offense. I should like to hear from a shinki who has seemingly impossible wishes - or a god who possesses a simple nature. There is nothing wrong with either and, in fact, I applaud both natures.


(Ambition is dangerous, but not bad - if it is held in check by a good heart and a strong mind.)
