[Week 20, Day 4, Accidental Video|Intro]

[The feed starts with a fat raindrop landing on the screen, and it leaves tracks at it rolls to the side, leaving the scene a little blurry for a second. And then it’s clear, and the Tree can be seen, the big one in the Himorogi that all the residents of Kannagara should be quite familiar with by now.

Sleeping beneath it, there’s a rather strange figure. Long blond hair is splayed across grass, and the clothing the figure is wearing trails across the grass as well: what looks like a long coat but has ruffles not only at the sleeves, but at the bottom as well, revealing a white underskirt. Tall boots meet the odd garment, and when the sleeping figure shifts, the dress tangles between his legs.

Of course, all of these details might be taken away from a bit by the fact that there’s a giant floating creature above his head that looks like a toy mouse, complete with a key it the back and sewn-shut eyes.

For a second, this is all that’s seen, and then the man turns his head toward the Hitomi, revealing pretty features and a sort of lazy sleepy smile... and talks in his sleep.]

Brother? Brother...?

[If he had a pillow right now, he’d be hugging it. As it is, he curls on his side, wraps both arms around himself. He seems not to notice the dampness of his clothing, the grass he's sleeping on.]

Mm, there you are!

[A moment more of this rather ridiculous picture, and then a rain drop hits the man's face, and his eyes slowly start to crack open, as he wakes, revealing one red iris and one gold. Sleepy blinking is all that’s seen, and then a hand reaching out toward the screen. The picture jumps wildly as the Hitomi is handled, and incoherent muttering can be heard in the background before it clicks off.]

[reaction] 1/2
[Well, uhm. That is. That is.

Way too private, is what it is. Enough to make Rin gape. And really just gape -- at what she's seeing on the screen, kind of forlornly. There isn't even a question about whether she was meant to see that.

So. As she regains her wits, she decides there are a few possible sides to this. One, it could be a dream. Only there was no dream actually attached, so that was out.

Newcomer, then? Him being a new face and sitting under that tree in Himorogi was suspicious. And pointed in that direction.]

[Newcomer! That is familiar territory. Soothingly so. After all that happened, doing something familiar might be good.

Besides, it's her self-declared job.

She puts on the video function and her best neutral-nice face.]

Uhm, hello? Excuse me? Wakey wakey...

[Oh, and that thing above his head? Not going to ask about that.

At least not yet.]
Mar. 16th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)
[Well, he's properly awake now, at least, and waiting on the calvary to come save him, so he's got time on his hands. So when he gets another video, he puts on a smile, rakes wet hair back out of his mismatched eyes, and answers her.]

Hello? Oh, I'm awake now, but thank you.

[A pause, and then his smile is turning up another notch, as he realizes this might be his first chance to find out exactly what is going on.

You might notice, also, that the giant mouse above his head is gone now.]

I'm Vincent Nightray, by the way, and pleased to meet you, Miss...?

[Never mind that he's wet and sleepy and out of place, he's a gentleman after all~.]

Mar. 16th, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
[Ah, yes, she's noted there have been other replies. Still, he might need the information!]

I'm Rin Asano! [Because by now, she can tell what English names are and that people with English names are used to the other name other.] Pleased to meet you as well.

Say, are you new here? I make it kind of my job to help out the newcomers, so if there's any unanswered questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Re: [Video]
[Oh, so whatever this strange place is has a welcoming committee? That makes it nicer than the Abyss, at least. Granted, so far it looks much nicer too.

And comes with gadgets.]

Actually, I have no idea where I'm at yet, Miss Rin. My brother just told me to wait here for him.

[Let's turn the smile up a notch. There. Now.]

So it would be greatly appreciated if you filled me in a little while I'm waiting and soaking.

[A laugh, a flip of wet hair.]
Mar. 16th, 2011 09:55 pm (UTC)
[Oh, Vincent, you have no idea. Clearly. Well, Rin is here to fill you in! She smiles a little and launches into her explanation.]

You are now in a world that is not your own. It is called Kannagara, is ruled by beings who call themselves gods, and has a big native population. You can see it on the map on your Hitomi -- that would be the device we're currently using to talk. You can use it for video, voice or text messages to anyone who has come here from somewhere else like yourself. We are easy to tell apart from the natives by our lack of the birthmark every native sports on his on her forehead.

And... [pause for thinking] Well, that is the general overview. There are a lot more important details, but I'll let you absorb that for now.
Mar. 16th, 2011 11:20 pm (UTC)
Re: [Video]
[Wow. That really is a lot to take in. Okay, so he's gotten the idea that it's another world, if it's not a dream, but another world with... gods? And a whole native population?

And while she says that they can be told apart by the birthmarks, that means the natives are at least human in appearance, right?

So... not chains?]

Hmm. Yes, that it quite a lot to take in at once.

[He mulls it over for a second, not seeming to mind the fact that the thing is still recording him while he's just sitting there with a thoughtful look.]

Then there are a lot of people here, from our world?

[Of course, he assumes that she is from the same world as himself, because that's the only world he knows exists.]
Mar. 16th, 2011 11:54 pm (UTC)
[And, hard as it is, Rin waits patiently while he is thinking.]

I don't know if there are a lot of people from your world. Usually it's just a handful from the same place, and... they usually know each other.

Together, We-Of-Other-Worlds [and she says this in a slightly mocking tone] are definitely in the minority.

Re: [Video]

{Wait, not from his world? So there are other worlds, other than this one. That makes it very complicated, figuring out just who is...]

That's strange, that people usually know each other. This is all so strange...

[He just wants to go back to sleep, really. But he knows he has to learn these things.]

And what sort of world are you from, Miss Rin?
Mar. 17th, 2011 10:20 am (UTC)
[Bit of a shrug and a lopsided smile.]

Never said it wasn't.

I'm from a place called Japan. Have you heard of it? Some of us at least have the same general countries in their homeworlds.
Mar. 17th, 2011 06:54 pm (UTC)
Re: [Video]
No, I don't think my world has the same countries as yours.

[Not that he's sure he wants to say what his world is like, entirely, yet. But that's beside the point.]

So this world then? What is this world like, besides...

[And he looks around a little, just a tad surrpised at the lush foliage. It's different from the city, obviously.]

Very green?
Mar. 17th, 2011 07:10 pm (UTC)
Mmh, it has several villages! Currently, if you want a marginally safe place to stay at, you're best headed for Mizusato. Don't worry about distances -- you'll be there in about half an hour. That is how this world works.
Mar. 17th, 2011 10:45 pm (UTC)
Re: [Video]
Half an hour? Anywhere?

[Well, that's quite strange. That makes it a very small world, doesn't it?]

Are there carriages? Or are you saying on foot, you'll be half an hour anywhere? That's... that's... very small.

[He's not sure he likes that small a world. Makes it difficult to hide, if you need to.]

Mar. 18th, 2011 09:39 am (UTC)
I'm saying on foot. It's a weird space-warpy thing this world does. It's really a good bit larger than that.
Mar. 18th, 2011 04:49 pm (UTC)
Re: [Video]
[Space-warping? Or is it time that warps, that you believe you've gotten somewhere in half an hour?

Either way, have a terrified look, Rin.

He tries to cover it. His voice comes out almost calm, really.]

I-I see. Is there anything else I should know? I won't be going anywhere on my own, I'm waiting for my older brother. But I wouldn't mind more information before that.

[Please tell me something to make me believe I'm not THERE.]
