Week One, Day Five [ Video ]

[ The camera reveals this body of Pain standing within a house in Amegakure. It is raining lightly outside. His expression is blank, save for his eyes, which are bright with purpose. ]

Mere days ago, I broadcast an image of the glorious conquests that I enacted with Yukari. In their typical fashion, unbelievers criticized my actions without comprehending my nature or my history.

How common it is for humans to see only a portion of greatness and then, in their limited vision, deem it madness.

However, as you have seen, my wife has recently rejoined me in this world. Therefore, my actions were a success.

I have pre-emptively taken it upon myself to forgive those of you who insulted my doings, as you merely do not know any better. Humans often err. In the future, you should be aware that there is nothing I have wanted in this world which I have not received, including the destruction of those who sought to oppose my will.

[ With a more emphatic cadence: ]

If you wish to bring about a glorious new future in this world, you had best ally with me.

I see that one among us has already developed fur. This is the way of humans. When left to their own devices, they give themselves to their base tendencies and become animalistic. His fate was mere inevitability.

What we need now is structure and guidance or we might all find ourselves becoming thusly bestial.

So, now that you have seen what Yukari and I have wrought, who will join with us?

[And another day in strangeland. Time seems to pass with an agonizing slowness here. But, well, if what she read on the network was true -- no wonder about that. Rin was actually kind of glad for it. After all, the less time passed here, the less wold pass at home (already too late, missed the decisive battle, but she couldn't think about it that way, couldn't think about all she loved as lost).

So she was sitting at the table (on a chair), eating a meager breakfast made out of some rice she found and some wild vegetables. While she was eating, she flipped on the Hitomi. Always good to check it first thing, she had quickly decided. If nothing else, it was an excellent way to know what was going on.

The first entry her eyes fell upon was that of... that weird guy who had been looking for his wife. She clicked on it and let the message play. Ah, so apparently he'd found his wife again...

Rin suddenly felt sad for no reason. The corners of her mouth curved into a frown. His wife, huh? Of course he had to have one. Of course, all the men had to be interested in other women. Women who were grown-up and mature and beautiful. Come to think of it, his wife was probably that woman who had been looking for her husband, huh? Indeed, she was quite beautiful, from what Rin had seen.

Allying with him? Well, if it let her be close to him... She sighed and lied through her teeth.]

That's, uh, nice. That you've got your wife back.

I would... like to be your ally.

[video] (sorry if it's short! :\ he kind of doesn't get all the subtext XD]

[ Oh, it is that girl again: the one he spoke with before. Well, she is pleasant enough. Pain is pleased she sees the righteousness of his goals. He knew he was not wrong in taking her for intelligent. ]

Good. I am pleased that I did not misjudge you.

I thought you were sensible, and it appears you are.

What kind of powers do you have? And what, as my ally, do you wish to contribute?
Feb. 15th, 2010 04:46 am (UTC)
T-thank you!

[The compliment makes Rin blush. He thinks she is sensible! Few people have told her that in her life. In fact, a lot have told her she was dumb. But then he asked for powers...

Well, that is a dilemma. Rin has no powers, except for her brain and her determination. She is no fighter, has always been weak. It makes her drop her face, discouraged. Oh, how would she like to be useful to him, to not be a burden! She prayed it might be so as she answered.]

I... I don't really have many powers. I'm not that good of a fighter, but, uh... [and she fumbles for words] I'm... not that bad at making plans, I think.

Maybe I could contribute that.

Feb. 15th, 2010 06:06 am (UTC)

Plans? Yes, certainly. Plans are very important.

Do you have any suggestions you would like to give me?
Feb. 15th, 2010 06:08 am (UTC)
[He said it's important! He approves! This causes Rin to veritably beam with joy.]

Well, ah... depends on pertaining to what.
Feb. 15th, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)

Hm. Well, I once had a plan to conquer the world.

Though I feel it may be unnecessary to conquer this particular world.

Plans for how best to secure allies, prepare troops, gain supplies, and create a system of government would be appreciated. In area in which you feel you have a specialty, you could offer advice.

What I will need, down the road, will be the assistance of people who know enough about the other human beings in this world to provide intel should conflicts arise. This is very important.

[So, basically, he wants her to spy on people. Doubts arise within her - but really, it's not like she hasn't done sketchy things before. So why not do it again for someone -- someone who's truly important to her? Rin thinks quickly.]

Well, as I see it, a lot of that would require more thorough knowledge of this world - its people, its resources. Though gaining allies would most probably be accomplished by having common goals and gaining people's trust.

... that last part? I suppose I could do it.
