so as I have come to understand it in many places in the world it is possible for two men to get married
and its strange because that kind of thing should be a bit of a moot point for us here in the Heavens right?
i mean most of us dont have much in the way of family here so whose name you pick things like that
it doesnt matter so much
and a material or political union isnt very likely either

it seems to me like it is frequently used as a proof of love too
but i dont feel like either of us need to prove anything because we know

so its strange but... its still a very appealing thought

i bet that it might be a bit of a problem between a shinki and a god though

Say you are a shinki... and you have lost your god. You have waited for them to come back... but you have begun to realize, perhaps they never will return. Now, you feel empty... and lost.

But then, a god who has watched over you since you arrived here takes you in. You care about them a great deal. You want to ask if they will allow you to be their shinki...

But do you do it, if the chances are slim that they will accept? Is it best... to spare yourself the embarrassment... and pain... of being rejected? I am currently living with them... so I also fear that perhaps if I pose the question and am rejected... perhaps they will not want me to stay with them anymore. I would like to think that they are a better person than that... a kinder person... but what if I am wrong? What if I am just fooling myself into thinking otherwise... due to my own loneliness?

What would you do?

Does anyone know what to do about pest control? These guys have been everywhere since I first arrived and I've about had it.

[Posted along with it is an image of his temple field in a swarm of butterflies. Dark reds, oranges, and blues, all migrated to one place and attracted to him and the poppies. They're perfectly harmless, but they never leave.]

[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?

Hello everyone, I hope that I'm doing this right. I will admit, I'm still getting used to using this, so please be patient with me.

I was curious, for those who struggle with reading or writing here: do you have any tips? I feel like I'm slowly making progress, but it's frustrating when you can't read most of what you find in the library. I think I saw something about learning, but I may be mistaken.

Alternately, is there anyone who wants to put together small study groups for those of us who aren't as proficient with reading and writing in Japanese? Does something like that exist? If not, would anyone be interested?

What kind of hobbies do you have?

[It's been a while since the last time that she asked something on the network. She's fairly confident in being a shinki and protecting Souji, but she's less sure about what she's supposed to do when they aren't doing something.

Hakkai suggested hobbies back then and she really... doesn't have any to speak of, besides looking after Souji and Nanako.]

From: Viktor

Viktor had made his way to one of the local indoor ice rinks, since he had skates. He had no idea why they were so fancy, but he'd shown up wearing them, and he felt more than a little stupid having no idea how to use them.

He still had no idea once he'd gotten there, though. The cool air was much nicer than the heat outside, but he had no jacket, and that was a mistake. Still, there wasn't a lot to do about it now. It wasn't as if he had any idea how to actually maneuver in the skates at all, but he figured he might as well see if he could...stand on them? Maybe?

Not yet, though. He was too taken by the idea of simply shooting them both across the (thankfully empty) ice. Just for the fun of it. Why not?

He turned the phone's camera on and focused it on the skate in his hand, humming a little to himself as he bent over the barrier to throw it somewhat underhandedly.

It didn't go far, and the edge on the toe caught pretty easily. But Viktor only laughed.

"Does anyone know how to do this? I'd try putting them on, but I don't really want to give myself a concussion!"

He probably would anyway. But. An Attempt Was Made to be safe, at least?

"Does anyone want to come join me? This rink is in the center of town and it's nice and cool in here! Bring a jacket, though, unless you like being cold."

Viktor didn't, but he hadn't been in here too long, so he just slid onto the ice and promptly lay down on it like some kind of weird starfish, his spare skate still in his hand and the other halfway across the ice. He didn't look too keen on retrieving it, either.

[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. ))

    [ It's been a while since he last posted about this, but! Souji offers the network at large a smile from the interior of his temple, cats milling around as per usual. ]

    Early last month, I asked if there was anyone that was interested in doing group studies. Since then, a lot's happened, and there have been new arrivals as well as departures. Unfortunately, some of those departures were people that offered to lead certain subjects, so I felt it might be a good idea to ask again. [ He inclines his head respectfully, quiet for a second before continuing. ]

    As many of you have likely seen, Hakkai-san is offering tutoring for certain subjects - math and Japanese, for example - at a previously abandoned temple. I know from talking with others that Japanese, especially, is in demand due to the fact that a lot of arrivals aren't familiar with the language. So if you feel you may need help with either of those, please, take a look at the schedule.

    He's also been kind enough to open up the space to other lessons so...

    I think it'd be a great idea to get on track with actually doing these studies, both to learn new things we might need and to enrich ourselves since it's a little difficult for us to go to school on the Near Shore. We should be able to help one another, right? [ He flashes a friendly smile, easy as anything. ]

    Personally, I worked as a tutor back home, so I have some experience in the matter. I'm specifically good with history, literature, and science, but also with Japanese and English both. For non-school subjects it's mostly first-aid and cooking, but if you're interested in fishing or origami, then that, too.

    But there are a lot of us here who might not have the proper training when it comes to certain types of weapons, the use of magic or other newfound abilities, or just fighting in general. I have combat experience, but I'm self-taught and it's with swords only. If there's anyone that would be interested in offering training for whatever styles of combat and weaponry that they specialize in, I think it'd be appreciated. I know I'd personally like to learn more forms of combat, as a god, so that I don't somehow hurt my shinki in the event their vessel is one I've never used before.

    If there's something in particular you're interested in learning or teaching, please feel free to let me know. I'll compile a list for both, and do a follow up after the next batch of arrivals comes in so that they can join as well. If you previously volunteered to lead a study group for a certain subject, I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if you're still interested so we can match you up with groups.

    [ He bows his head. ]

( Souji has transcribed the video, for anyone who would rather read text. A link to Hakkai's post that he's referring to has also been ICly provided. )

So, since I'm still getting to know myself I have a question for all you Shinki and Gods out there.

What's your favorite candy? Oh, and what's your favorite dessert?

Bonus if you can tell me where to find them.

Hello :)

My name is Yuuri, and I'm a shinki of Bastet's. I've been here for several weeks and haven't really gotten around to using the BBS very much so far, but it's nice to meet any of you I haven't met before!

There are two things I wanted to talk about... or ask about, really.

First, I've heard a lot about the skills shinki are supposed to be able to use, but if any older shinki would be willing to explain more or help me train to use them better, I'd really appreciate the guidance.

Second, I wondered if anyone might have any guidance about how to find a part time job on the Near Shore. My god provides for us, of course, but I'd like to have a little bit of pocket money for things. My own clothes that my god didn't pick out, things like that. I thought maybe I might try to find work at a cat cafe, since that seems like it would be serving my god, too, or maybe at a dance studio since I seem to know a lot about that, but... I'm not sure, and I thought maybe it would be nice to brainstorm with some other people.

Thank you for your time!

I should think even soulless Shinki deserve a name? Since I cannot say they are a male or a female, are there names that are...neutral? I have sought out Georgian names - since their origin seems the most fitting - but only a few appeal to me.

Eteri, for example, has a nice sound; as does Imeda. Can you immediately determine gender based on them?

(The first means "ether, air" and the second means "hope", which is why they appeal to her so much (besides their sound).)

I welcome all suggestions.
