[Video: week 14, day 4]

[There is a dark skinned, dark haired man staring at a cow on the Hitomi's screen. He looks from the cow, to the Hitomi, and back again. There's a herd of cattle actually, and the man is standing among them wearing a rather revealing white tunic and black pants. His arms are crossed.]

Now, weren't we just here?

[He regards one of the bovines, who is staring at him.] Just the other day in fact. Don't give me that look. Really, you didn't miss me that much, did you?

[He seems to be addressing the cow.]

[Well, that reaction is odd. Allen seems to know this guy, and not be too happy to see him. Rin's sense for danger is heightened once again by the situation they find themselves in, so if there's someone suspicious going around, she wants to know.

This time around, she wants to be able to protect both herself and those she cares for.

It could be nothing, of course, especially since this apparently-new guy has been quite civil so far, but better be safe than sorry.]

Uhm, Allen? Who is this?

[He blinks, touching his earring and the communicator there at a familiar voice. Oh... Rin. He should have tried to find her in the chaos that had erupted. She sounds safe at least.]

Ah, Rin...

[A pause. It's a little complicated.]

... His name's Tyki Mikk. Do you remember when Road arrived? ... He's like her.

[Rin thinks for a moment. Yes, she thinks she remembers.]

You... warned about her, didn't you?

So there's two of them here now.

[She wants to smack herself for talking nicely to the guy. Now she really hopes he won't get back on her about that storytelling.]

[It's trailed off because actually, he feels a little guilty about that.

Road had been making progress.]

He was here before, Tyki... But yes. Ah... three. Sort of. The one that leads all of them... I just heard from him, too. He's called the Earl.

[It's a long pause because he feels he should apoligize for that, his world and its dark things coming here.]

[Allen laughs a little instead.]

Everything happening lately; it's all a little at-once, isn't it?

[Humor. He tries to find it.]

[voice || private]
[Oh, Allen. Still trying to be cheerful about it. Rin kind of admires that.

She lets a quiet laugh come through.]

Mh, it is. When they get going, they really get going, huh?

[Pause as she gets serious again.]

I'm sorry you have to deal with that. Are you and yours doing okay?

[Always, Rin. Always. Sometimes what else do they have?

He does sober again as well as she does.]


[Lavi, Road. Everything.


Never fast enough.

He smiles even if she can't see it, leaning back against the wall; tone deceitfully light.]

It's not as bad as it could be. Everyone is safe. Mizusato now.

[Curios glance - right, at nothing. He's become a little used to the video function.]

And you?
Nov. 13th, 2010 09:29 pm (UTC)
[voice || private]
Not as bad as it could be, right.

[She supposes he's right. It always could be worse. And whenever you think you've hit rock bottom, something more terrible happens.]

I'm holding up okay.

[Yep. Story of his life. It's why he brightens a little in tone at next reply.]

That's good.

Whatever is happening... I think most people have gotten to safety at least.

It can't last forever, anyway. We'll get back to our homes.

[That reminds her of something. She gives this a quick consideration, then decides to tell him. She hasn't told anyone yet, and maybe it will do some good.]

About that... a while ago, I -

I spoke to Ame-no-Uzume. And she told me that the us that's here... it's a sort of "copy". That there's still another us at home. That we exist in both places at once.

[Well, Rin, that gets him to sit bolt upright, sounds of some scuffling of boots on stone.]

Wait, she said-?

[A pause. And...

Honestly, he has no idea. Smiling and sad and a little angry at the same time even if smiling softly.]

I.. wondered. Since I went back after-

[Well, what happened. Pause again. How silly. He smiles more genuinely, picking the fragments of what all that means up.]

It makes a lot of sense given everything. I'm... glad.

At least we haven't really left, if that's true...

[And his tone shifts even as he does, crossing one knee over the other and sobering a bit.]

The other one, Ukemochi... she told me they aren't really gods, too. Not exactly.
Nov. 13th, 2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
[voice || private]
It does make sense, doesn't it? Also with me going back. Even though I... well.

[He seems to have perked up a bit. She's happy about that. And she's also happy that this truth - if it is truth - exists.

She doesn't know what she would've done if that hadn't come when it did.

But then he says something else, and she jumps on that. Not really gods? What is that supposed to mean?]

Ukemochi? What else did she tell you?
Nov. 13th, 2010 11:54 pm (UTC)
[voice || private]
Not a whole lot, but...

I told her I didn't think she was a god and... she said that was true. That they're not.

[At least not as he knows them. It strikes him as a little funny, to think of people back at the Order giving him strange looks about this. And it's the polite way to put it.]

She implied there was a lot of... infighting. Or disagreements like that.

I wonder if that doesn't explain a lot.
Nov. 13th, 2010 11:57 pm (UTC)
[voice || private]
Then what are they?

[Ponders this.]

Huh, so they're fighting. And they think they gotta take it out on us?

[An exasperated huff follows.]
