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?

From: Dali

(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.]

From: Demyx
Posted: July 13th

[ 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...

[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?

From: Goten and Izumo
Date: July 11

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.]

[ The video turns on to a shot of Yata looking... well, that's a little harder to tell right away because he's trying to appear as neutral as possible at the moment. Despite that, inwardly he's panicking a little.

He rubs a hand against the back of his neck awkwardly as he addresses the BBS. ]

So, uh. I'm guessing waking up to find your god's temple missing is a bad sign, huh?

did anyone else act weird because of that stupid bridge in the middle of tanabata?
here's my advice: don't walk on it with anyone if it ever shows up again.
you'll thank me next year! ♥

what's the point of feeling nice things for someone if you don't actually like them like that? (҂⌣̀_⌣́)
waste of time, if you ask me.
would anybody actually walk on it just because?

From: Chikusa Kakimoto
Date: July 10

[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.]


[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.]

[Riku is faintly awkward in his seat; he doesn't have any experience with large networks like this one. This seems a lot more efficient than to ask every single person he meets about whether they've seen him around before though, so here he is.

Posting a video to the heaven's network. No way this will go wrong, right? Right.]

So, for those that don't know me – hi, my name is Riku and I'm a recent arrival. I've been told that I've been around before twice already… once as a shinki and once as a god, but I can't remember either occasion.

Has anyone made a similar experience here? If yes, how do you deal with it? I don't like the thought of having been here and not remembering a thing about it…

Also, if I offended you while I was here the last time, I'm sorry. I probably don't mean it now.

[After what Sora and Roxas told him about his last self… apologizing seems like a good move. If he's gotten mad at his best friend about something like his romantic affairs, who knows what else he's done.]

[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.

It's been a while since I last posted the timeline of events. We've had a lot of new people showing up. Some might be curious about when we started arriving and everything that's happened afterward.

These are my notes, but I haven't been here since the beginning. If there's anything you'd like to add or question, please feel free.

From: Eros

[There's a dull clicking sound in the background when the feed starts but judging by the odd lower angle and blurred image it seems this wasn't supposed to start in the first place. Upon closer inspection, and with a bit of shifting, the video focuses and reveals what definitely looks to be a young man's bare back facing the camera. He's laying down on his side in the grass, currently unmoving, but when the clicking sound starts up again he finally shifts to lazily roll over and face the feed with tired, half-lidded eyes.

No, he isn't wearing a shirt. Too hot for that. And even if it wasn't, he'd probably feel too unenergetic to put one on anyway.]

Oi... Put that away. It's too hot for this.

[said as he lifts his hand up, considers reaching over... and chooses instead to drop it atop his forehead which is currently dappled with sweat. He could go for a swim. He could grab a drink, take a cold shower. He could. But he won't.

Whoever's on the other side of the screen makes a noncommittal, almost animal like growl... before finally obliging and dropping the device in the grass so it can eventually pad over and flop down beside Rin in the afternoon shade. Is that... an ayakashi? Seems somewhat tame for one, though there's no mistaking it's features. Bear. Small. Cuddly. Definitely ayakashi. Regardless, Rin doesn't seem pressed to move much, and with a lazy, cat-like stretch he rolls his shoulders before absently wiping more sweat away from his neck and chiseled stomach with the backs of his fingertips.

Well. There's Eros in the flesh for you.]

Tsk... stupid bear. Now I can't sleep.

(( ooc: Rin ran into a bear cub ayakashi and it's made him uncharacteristically tired, lazy, and all around listless! Please help... or take the opportunity to admire. Your choice bro. ))
