[video] Week 25, Day 7

[Sup, Edo Kannagara, this here is a broadcast by your one and only Asano Rin. She's filling the screen out in... nearly just the right manner (even after over a year of constant use, her mastery of the Hitomi is not quite perfect yet), ostensibly sitting or standing, her face perfectly neutral, a little open, but also a little reticent.

Almost. Because, well, it takes something abnormal to make Rin post these days, and something abnormal certainly has happened. So indeed, a perceptive eye might notice just a hint of distraction about her manner.]

Greetings, citizens of Kannagara!

I think most of you have probably noticed the change in our environment. No town in Kannagara was ever quite so big, was it?

[A paus, and her tongue just barely flits over her lips to moisten them.]

Well, I won't withhold from you what I know. The city we suddenly find ourselves in is Edo, the biggest city in Japan, where the shōgun, de facto ruler of the country, has his seat.

It is the city I was born in. Or would be, if not for -- [and here, her strained concentration breaks a bit, and she allows herself to sigh and throw her hands up in the air in a gesture of exasperation] -- this! Still the Hitomi, and people from Kannagara here, and...

Marks. The people have the marks of the Kannagara natives. My neighbors have them.

[And here is another sigh. She closes her eyes once, then stares straight at the camera again.]

I don't know what this means in the greater scheme of things. What I do know is that you should be cautious. Though, of course, most people are nice, some... unsavory types are afoot as well. And some of them are quite adept at escaping the eyes of the government, so -- take care, please. And try not to offend anyone with a sword. It tends to end badly.

You may also want to acquire some of the local clothing to blend in a little better. [Pause.] I don't know, just a hunch. [And then, a touch harsher.] Friends of mine can ask me. I should have some spares.

If you need anything or have any questions, I'm open for anything. I'd also like you to report your locations -- [pause, because it takes her a moment to realize not everyone knows most nooks and crannies of Edo] -- as well as you can. If you are lost, at least. I know... most of the city somewhat well, so I might be able to give you directions.

[Another pause, then a light dip of the head.]

Please take care.

[And she's about to turn off the Hitomi, but then she hesitates, swallows visibly. Does she want to ask this? Does she trust the population of Kannagara at large with this information?

But then, the people she wants to inquire about can take care of themselves quite well.]

And... if you see a guy with a messy topknot in a black-and-white kimono with a manji -- wait, you lot don't know what that is -- err, with this symbol [and she draws a swastika into the air] on its back, or, hm... right, there was that... a small girl wearing men's clothes and a chequered hat with a tattoo on her cheek, please, please tell me!

That is all. [There goes that nod that is almost a bow again.] I would be greatly indebted to you. Thank you very much.

[And off the feed goes!]

--I have to wear a kimono again?

[Johan looks totally surprised by this. Was that what all those dirty looks were about? Aw, hell.]

And... wait a minute. Are you talking about a swastika?
Jul. 11th, 2011 09:11 am (UTC)
I'd advise it.

[And here the Automatic Translation System has a bit of reverse glitch and translates "swastika" back to "manji" for her, so that earns him a bit of a "duh" look.]

... yes, that's what I was talking about.

[Ginko, oddly enough, looks damp. His hair is still a little stringy in spots, and his clothing is decidedly wet and muddy. It's a kimono, though--slightly carelessly worn, with some of his upper chest showing. If she looks carefully, she might see a katana sticking up from behind the box he's sitting against... though it is pretty well hidden from the Hitomi's feed.]

Edo, huh. It's changed a lot since the last time I visited.

[He pauses for a moment.]

I woke up outside the city. I'm in the outskirts now, though I couldn't tell you much more precisely than that.
Jul. 11th, 2011 09:13 am (UTC)
[Oh, hey there. She knows you. Vaguely.]

Hmm, well... maybe my Edo isn't your Edo.

Ah. Will you be okay, then?

At least I got the hang of putting on kimonos.

[ Sourly. She doesn't like this change very much. ]

[Smiling at her in awkward sympathy.]


... do you have one or do you want one of mine?

Actually, just for your information, I awoke dressed in clothing from this time period.

[There, he's being helpful.]

I believe my dear little brother is reporting our location to you, so I'll skip that. But I do appreciate the information and...

[His tone becomes serious now.]

I will definitely keep an eye out for the people you are looking for, Miss Rin.
Jul. 13th, 2011 10:34 am (UTC)
[You again?]

Ah, hm... really? Interesting.

[Then, heartfelt:] And... thank you. That would help me greatly.

Jul. 13th, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
So they're going to start transforming Kannagara into our worlds, now?


Isn't that lovely. A sigh.]

How badly could it end up to offend anyone with a sword? You mean...

[And with that, he drags his fingers across his throat, with a questioning look.]
Jul. 13th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
That might be! I don't think I'm so special that it'd be only my world, though... things like this haven't happened at all for a while.

[And she gulps at that, a bit of cold sweat trickling down her face.]

Yes, I mean that. It could happen.

Jul. 13th, 2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
Rin, this is your world?

[Down to including people that she knew there. It's hard for Lenalee to imagine having an entire world brought here, or at least recreated like that. It is bigger than anything the gods have done before.]

This is Edo...

[That only makes the whole thing even stranger. Lenalee has seen Edo, as a barren wasteland teaming with akuma driven to cannibalism due to having already killed all of the humans. But this version is so busy; she can barely make her way down the street without bumping into people.]
Jul. 13th, 2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
That's right! This is my Edo!

[Laughing a bit sheepishly. She's not really... especially proud of it? Happy to see it again, but also said, since she knows it is very likely to just be an illusion. In which case it also makes her feel sorely cheated and played with and, dear Gods, she's going to have a talk with you about this.]

Do you like it?
Jul. 14th, 2011 12:59 am (UTC)
[She smiles, not quite answering. Lenalee would probably have liked it better had she not woken up in a brothel.]

It's very busy. I've gotten used to the quiet villages.

[Even knowing that there are no akuma in this world, the crowds still make the hair on the back of her neck prickle uncomfortably. She attempts to keep an eye on everyone at once; old habits die hard, and she wouldn't want this one to die anyway. It is too integral to who she is.]

It must be strange, to have your whole world brought here. Do you think that the deities here have gotten more powerful?

Misa doesn't want to get stabbed by anyone!! Misa just wants this stupid world to go back to normal!
Jul. 13th, 2011 06:22 pm (UTC)
Ah, well... I'm sure it will, in time.

Just. Don't offend anyone with a sword, and you should be fine.
