[video] Week 24, Day 7 (backdated)

[Rin is calm, really, she is. The video shows her sitting or standing up straight as a rod, posture all samurai's daughter (though she isn't doing it on purpose, nor aware of it), though the lid she's keeping on her emotions is far from closed. Instead, she is scowling openly, anger interspersed with something close to desperation. And when she speaks, her intonation is clipped, almost cold.]

I'm not going to mince words.

[Breathe in, breathe out. Slightly staggering, and that is the only thing betraying that she's keeping her whole body from shaking.]

Has anyone seen Marco? Since yesterday, preferably? His symbol isn't showing up on the Hitomi, so if anyone could report having seen him, that'd be great. Even if you've seen him dying, really, do tell me, I appreciate it. No need to go easy on me!

[And here is where she gets really intense, eyebrows slanting deeper, voice a touch louder, and not cold at all.]

Oh, and if you happen to have killed him -- well, come on out! I'd be lying if I said I won't be judging you, of course I will, but hey, you totally get to gloat! How's that for a trade-off?

[Several deep breaths now, as she makes an effort to unruffle her feathers.]

If no one has seen him, I'm going to withhold my verdict for about a week. If he hasn't turned up until then, I think it's pretty safe to assume he's left Kannagara.

[After some quick scrolling through...]

He's not on the Hitomi, so he's left Kannagara at least for now.

[A lot of people sure have disappeared lately... So many who have asked for people, a lot of them close to at least one person, and... it kind of really blows, doesn't it?

He's been so caught up in recovering from his own losses that he hasn't quite realised the ones others have gone through. He has recorded it all, what he has seen, but not quite realised. Hm...]

[Oh look -- it's Lavi. Since he is a friendly face, Rin's manner softens a little, though she's evidently still on edge.]

I think that can also happen when they die. Which is why I'm waiting. For a confession or for Marco to not come back. Whichever.

[He and Marco had not spoken much recently. Elfangor was not certain what had driven a wedge between them, the only ones here from their world. Perhaps it was that Marco had idealized him as the warrior who had given him the means to save his planet... only to be disappointed when he did not live up to whatever expectations he had formed for him. Or perhaps it had been because they were the only two from there, and he had not wanted the reminder of his home.

Elfangor supposes he will never know the answer.

It is with a grim look, and noticeable tension about his eyes that he responds.]

I wish I could say otherwise, but I have not seen him in some time.

[A pause.] He left before, for merely a day... Perhaps he will return again. [But he is in no way confident of that.]
Jun. 21st, 2011 11:04 am (UTC)
[-- oh. Elfangor.

Rin's face flushes in shame as she realizes she's probably being terribly insensitive. How must he feel, after all, who has known Marco far longer than her?

Her smile, when she answers, is humble.]

Mh, perhaps he will...

[Ah, but there is one thing she must ask.]

Say... if he's returned home... does he have a good place to return to?

[Oh. Oh Rin. Gau's heart aches for you, even though he has no idea either way whether Marco in his own world will be all right. Not like he knows with Yoite.

He's walking as he does the video, and he's dressed differently from before, wearing the robes of a Shinto priest with a faint cherry blossom pattern. The hat seems almost out of place on his dark curls.]

I've been gone for a while, obviously, so I haven't seen him. I'm sorry, Rin-san.

Jun. 21st, 2011 11:08 am (UTC)
It's okay. Not your fault if he just up and vanishes... right?

[The laugh is a little too dry. But she's happy to see you! Cue as bright a smile as she can currently muster.]

You're back, then? And a priest all of a sudden?

[Well, well, well. Was this Vincent's competition who had split? He doesn't know everyone in this world, despite the fact he's reached out to a few people in an attempt to create allies.

So he really isn't too sure who she is talking about, but she certainly seems upset enough to have lost a lover.

Hm. Is this why she had been so reticent before? Well, now of course she'll have to mourn...

All these thoughts happen in a moment, and then he's pressing the button for a video. The scene opens on the courtyard of his family's home.]

Is there anything I can do? Would it help to... conduct some sort of search, Miss Rin?
Jun. 21st, 2011 03:35 pm (UTC)
[Gawd, Vincent. Does she really have to deal with you now? Her answer is polite, but she seems weary.]

... can I get back to you on that?

Re: [Video]
Of course, my lady.

[He speaks softly, and there's a sincerity to his tone.]

I've no wish to cause you more trouble when you already have so much to worry over.

[After all, the game itself is fun, but actually hurting this woman? He has nothing to gain from it.]

[For a moment, as Raikou watches her, he can only frown a bit. Because it hits him then that with all of the disappearances...he and Rin are two of the 'oldest' off-worlders left in Kannagara.

And although he regrets the fact that he'd lost touch with Marco, hadn't been as close as they could have been, Raikou is honestly more concerned with the lady he'd left behind, rather than the one the gods had taken.

It makes him fear for them (and himself - selfish in that moment, but he doesn't want to lose Gau, not again) and her, now that she's on her own.

Because she is on her own, and much as she's letting emotions, letting hope, give her something to cling to...

She, more than anyone there knew just how they could twist the knife in this world.

So he stops the work he was doing, sets the screen to drip off the latest sheets of paper, then dries his hands before leaning back against the work station. He doesn't offer false smiles or flowery words of reassurance.

Instead, all he offers is an understanding look and a gentle voice and a touch of blunt truth.]

Rin-san...You know he's gone. At least for now, you know he is. But we both know that doesn't mean he won't be back so... I guess I could just say hold to that hope. And if you need anything - anything at all - You know Gau and I are here for you.

[Wow, Raikou. That is indeed quite blunt. And it hits Rin, hits here where it hurts, but she appreciates it, too.

She answers him in much the same way he has: solemn, but not without understanding, voice even.]


But, ah... actually, I'm not entirely sure yet -- but I'm suspecting it, yes.

... thank you.

[It's a little difficult to watch, with Rin in such obvious pain. Dealing with it bluntly, yes, but obviously... it isn't easy for her. Lenalee has seen those guards put up before.]

I'm sorry, I haven't seen him in quite a while.

[She is inclined to believe that he is gone. Though she never saw Marco very often anyway, so many people have disappeared that it is simply the most likely answer. But despite all of those loses, Lenalee still isn't sure that she has the words to comfort Rin without making it worse. This never gets easy, no matter how many times they go through it.]

But I don't think it's very likely that he was killed.

[Oh hey thar, Lenalee. You get a weak, but affectionate smile.]

Mh... I guess I want to steel myself for the worst case scenario.

[And a quiet laugh.]

We haven't talked in a while. Are you well?

I haven't seen him in a while. Sorry, Rin.

[Matt feels bad for his own sake, of course, a sadness mixed with guilt, because he had a tendency to lose track of Marco, and he should've done better. He still considers him pretty much his adopted little brother.

He feels worse for Rin, who's always been so calm and steady, and who's obviously just as close to Marco, maybe closer, and if Matt didn't suspect before that it was in a way that would make his vanishing especially painful for her (he did), he'd feel sure now, watching her try to keep it together.]

I don't think he's run into any trouble. Like, he'd have found a way to let one of us know if he had.

[That's something, right?]
Jun. 23rd, 2011 10:35 am (UTC)
It's all right.

... would he? He's managed to die without anyone knowing about it before.

[And she knows it's really petty of her to talk like she's blaming him for it, but... it gets frustrating sometimes.]
