[week 26, day 7 | video]

[The video flicks to life as its owner spins it around, examining the engraved letters on the back.] Hitomi?

[He shakes his head rotating it back around, not even noticing that it is recording at first. But the device is the least of his worries when surrounded by such beauty. Though considering what happened last time the setting changed he should probably be more concerned than he is. For some reason he just couldn’t bring himself to worry too much about this place.] They really seem to have outdone themselves this time haven’t they?

[He shrugs slightly, a faint smile lifting the corners of his lips as a vibrant blue and pink butterfly flutters past. His first thought is that Rangiku would like to see it… and that’s when it finally occurs to him that in the wonderment of this place he hadn’t realized he couldn’t feel her. Or Renji or… anyone. That makes his brows knit tighter, deep blue gaze focusing on the device in his hand, eyes more alert than they’d been a moment ago, almost as a dreamer upon waking. It is beautiful here but there is danger in giving yourself over to this kind of ethereal tranquility, a loss of self and that worries him enough to have him pushing to his feet. He needs to get out of here to somewhere that isn’t bursting so full of spiritual energy that he can’t sense anything.]  Abarai-kun, where are you? And Matsumoto-san… we should explore these new changes but I cannot even sense your reiatsu here.

Is everyone else okay? Shimizu-san? Meguro-san? Miss Talbot? At least we seem to be ourselves this time.

[Look, here we have an evidently New Person. Which means it's Explanation Time. Because Rin thinks that now that she's over the brunt of her grief and wtf-ery (hopefully), she might get back on track with the "welcome newcomers and explain things to them" thing.

Her face is calm, open, an ever-so-slight smile on her lips.]

Ah... I'm sorry? Hello? It would appear you are not in the same place you were before. [Pause.] I mean, really not the same place.

[A w k w a r d. Is she getting out of practice?]

[Kira shook his head a little, offering her a weak smile in return. This was going to be rather exasperating wasn’t it? Half the people on the island thinking they were someone else. It was intriguing to see from the other side however. Oh the laughs Rangiku must’ve gotten from watching them all run around thinking they were Medieval Europeans.] I thank you for your concern, really. But the situation is not quite what you believe it to be I’m afraid.

[That, uh, makes her blink. Certainly not an answer she's ever been met with. Few newcomers, even boastful ones, end up being the one doing the explaining.]

How so, if you'll fill me in?
Jul. 31st, 2011 03:06 pm (UTC)
[He sighs softly, giving her an apologetic look. Really it's hard enough to believe the first time with all of the evidence presented right in front of you but to believe such a thing when the world seems just as it should be to you... well that is just too ridiculous to even believe. She'd doubtlessly think he was mad.]

I'm afraid it won't make much sense... and I doubt you'd believe me, whatever they've got you thinking about this place.
Jul. 31st, 2011 06:03 pm (UTC)
[Another blink; for she doesn't quite know whether to be exasperated with how patronizing he is being or excited about a new clue to their situation she might have.

... don't they say the middle way is always the best? In this case, it means an expression that is both intense and twitching with the aforementioned exasperation.]

No, please do fill me in! I like new information, believe me!

[Rin that look is a little scary, really. He doesn't quite know what to make of it. But, since it won't matter in a week or so anyways he figures it can't hurt to answer her truthfully.]

Everyone here was stolen from their homes and brought to another world and imprisoned on an island called Atollo. The supposed gods that rule the island have rather impressive magical abilities, including the ability to reform the entire island however they see fit and give everyone memories other than their own for a time.

Just over a week ago everything was fashioned after Medieval Europe and I thought myself some sort of wild game hunter and loyal to a woman I'd never met... so whatever you think is going on here is, in fact, false memories.

[Which would be hard enough to believe without him adding in the part about the mandatory sex. No sense worrying her now though when she'd remember on her own once the island was restored.]

[NOT GONNA STOP BLINKIG ANYTIME SOON. Vaguely, she feels a headache coming on.]

And here I thought I was whisked from my world and brought to a world called Kannagara, where a bunch of Japanese gods lorded it over us and sometimes did weird things to the environment or our memories!

Funny, that.
Aug. 1st, 2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
[Blinking sounds like a good plan, Rin. It really does.


Why would the rulers of Atollo make people think they were... somewhere else but in the same situation? It didn't make
sense. But then when had any of what they were doing made sense?]

Funny indeed... [His tone is serious though, and contemplative, brows knitting harder as he goes to bite his lip in thought. He pauses wincing a little because the deep cut through his lip is still not healed entirely, his endless attempts to chew on it the main cause for the slow healing.]

I can't pretend to know what they're planning or thinking behind this was but... [He shakes his head slightly, no he just can't believe that there are more worlds like Atollo. Sorry, Rin. He has a habit of lying to himself and can be very stubborn when he wants to be.]
Aug. 1st, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
[Rin just gulps and stays still, as if physically standing her ground against all the confusing "what ifs" that are trying to flood her head.]

Watch it with the lip-biting.

[The words are quiet, half-hearted. Kind of distracted (or distraught), maybe.]
Aug. 2nd, 2011 04:11 pm (UTC)
[He glances away and if he were not so very concerned with just what Arawn is planning at the moment would've blushed at that comment. Even so the faintest hint of color rises to his cheeks.]

Yes... quite the bad habit, unfortunately.

[He shakes his head a little as if physically dismissing a thought then returns his attention to the device.]

I'm sorry, perhaps I should've kept my silence. I know it's rather a lot to take in.
Aug. 2nd, 2011 04:34 pm (UTC)
[She shakes her head in turn and sighs, then gives him a pointed look.]

Well, if I'm perfectly honest, I'm not sure I entirely believe your story yet, having lived here for over one and a half years. At least as far as I know.

I'm not sure what to believe anymore.
Aug. 2nd, 2011 04:44 pm (UTC)
A year and a half?

[He blinks, looking a little startled. They really outdid themselves, goodness. He couldn't imagine spending so much time in a place like Atollo for so very long and from the sounds of it this Kannagara was supposed to be rather similar.]

No I don't blame you for not taking my word for it. Only time will tell, I suppose.
Aug. 2nd, 2011 05:01 pm (UTC)
[All sarcasm vanishes from her face at that. Really, all these stretches her world view has experienced lately only serve to make her very, very tired.]

I suppose so.

[Sighing again. Yeah, she's just a ray of sunshine lately.]

Well, in case I should turn out to be right, welcome to Kannagara. You're probably familiar with the general situation. On your Hitomi, you have a map of the world. You can take up work and residence in the villages. Most recommendable would be Mizusato. Watch out for monsters and highway robbers on the road.

[He felt bad that she looked more distressed than she had when she'd spoken to him. It wasn't as though he'd meant to disrupt her world, she was the one who'd asked. But he still felt guilty for putting that weary look on her face.]

So I've heard.... though bandits as well as beasts, that was not mentioned.

I am confident that I can protect myself, thank you...

I'm sorry I never got your name. I am Kira Izuru... and you are?
Aug. 3rd, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC)
[She musters a smile.]

Still, preparation is decisive, no?

I'm Asano Rin. Nice to meet you.
