Week 31, Day 4 (backdated) » [text]

[Rin's face greeting the Hitomi today is solemn, quiet, and a bit sad in that "I'll be okay but right now I'm grieving" way. She's looking away for a few seconds, and if you're watching closely, you may see her fidgeting a little -- unsure how to start this post off as she is.

But she figures she should just start already, because she doesn't want to be caught awkwardly avoiding the camera for too long; so she focuses her gaze on it and clears her throat.]

Hello, everyone! I guess -- I think -- ah, hm, how should I put this? Has -- people who've known Gau-kun and Raikou-san, I'm guessing you've seen that dream by now. Right? And you know that they're... not exactly gone, but not exactly around anymore. Yes.

[A pause as she swallows.]

What I wanted to ask was if anyone is taking over their bakery, here in Mizusato? If you want, you can have the rooms above too. I'll find something else. So if you want them, please contact me. I can be out any time.

[Another pause, this time longer, and more deliberate. Rin takes a deep breath, and her expression smoothens out a bit more.]

Besides that, I've been wondering something... how does everyone know when their birthday is? I mean, do you just go with the date? Or do you go with how long it was until your birthday at home when you arrived here? Me, I guess I've been going with the latter, but, hm... the date is important too, I guess.

[Looking a bit distracted here. There's a specific thing she's thinking about, and it's not about having been born that day.

Five years. She'll be turning nineteen. Five years since she lost her parents. She's not been making a fuss about it in Kannagara, but she feels for this anniversary, she should be more exact.

Breaking out of her reverie, a bit of a smile appears on her face.]

A-anyway, please let me know about your thoughts! I'd appreciate it. I really would.

[private to Hyakurin]

Hyakurin? We -- we haven't really been talking, have we? Sorry about that. Have you been well? Have you been able to settle in? What have you been doing?

[A breathy hint of a laugh, here -- maybe a bit too many questions, here.]

I'd love to hear about it.

[And the feed clicks off.]

[Wow, girl, you're something else. Offering to throw yourself onto the street just because those guys are gone? Yeah. Kanda's just going to ignore that part and go with what does interest him a little bit - since Lenalee's latest public announcement which left him realizing he's over twenty years old now. Well, technically speaking, at least.]

I never cared much for birthdays.

[But, well, theoretically...]

I'd guess the time that passes would be better to look at; dates are all fucked up here.

You don't, eh?

[SOMEHOW, that is not so surprising to Rin.]

But so is time itself, isn't it?

[...Right. Maybe he should have done something about it before, but, well, he'll announce things later. Now he's just going to look a little embarrassed and contact the young woman in question.]

Ah, that... would probably be me... taking care of the bakery, I mean... B-but you're free to stay there! I wouldn't want to cause any inconveniences.

[So scared he's almost trembling at this point. HE'S TALKING TO A LADY]
Nov. 6th, 2011 05:37 pm (UTC)
[Wow, someone is nervous. It achieves little more than a puzzled eyebrow quirk in Rin before she smiles. In a hopefully reassuring way.]

Mh, I see! Have things... been arranged already?

[Awkward, awkward.]

And, well! It's not an inconvenience. As I said, I'll find something. I just figured that if someone's taking the bakery, living right above it might be more convenient...

[ They haven't, haven't they? Too many days have passed and to be honest, she really hasn't really been all that busy. Hard to be busy in this place. Too peaceful...

But she smiles easily, settling back and inhaling deeply. ]


[ She taps the back of the Hitomi. ]

Honestly? I need something to do before I go crazy. This place is just too nice and calm for me.

[ Among other things. Things she won't bother to talk about. ]

What about you? You've gotta have some nice adventure stories.

"Too nice and calm", huh... ?

[Slightly awkward smile. It's a mixture of really, Hyakurin, really? and you don't know the half of it and actually...

Because in a way, that hits closer to home than she'd like to admit.]

Hmm, well, recently a friend of mine got in a bit of trouble, but other than that... yes, it's calm. And, well, some old friends just left -- that's Gau-kun and Raikou-san, they were living with me -- but I'm doing okay.

[Matt saw the dream, and wasn't sure how much of it was real. He guesses the so-called gods come through, sometimes, after all, though at a price he wouldn't be willing to pay. Is that what their silence is meant to tell him? That he can't possibly offer enough?

He's not ready to talk about any of that with anyone just yet, so he addresses Rin's question.]

I just celebrated mine when it seemed like the right time of year. I don't think it really counted. But I never got to my last one in my world, and it was, like, less than a week away.
Nov. 8th, 2011 05:12 pm (UTC)
[Oh hey, Matt! Rin looks happy to see you!]

Less than a week? Wow.

[And she really... isn't sure what kind of "wow" that is. Doesn't know if that's a particularly bad thing for him. So, shrugging it off awkwardly.]

Mmmh, Kanda pointed something out, though. What do you think of as a year, here? Do you measure it by seasons or by days and months?
Nov. 10th, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
[He gives her a little grin.]

Kinda sorta both. It's easy to lose track of days, y'know? But it's not-- I mean, it doesn't act like Earth. The seasons feel too short, and the days feel too long. I don't think a year to Kannagara is the same as a year to me.

[Alice... doesn't like this video. She really doesn't. Rin is a nice person - oh she's always a little bit confusing, or trying to explain things that Alice really doesn't understand at all, but she's kind to Alice.

That makes this a video that's impossible to ignore - because she's pretty sure she's never seen Rin look so... sad. Especially when she's talking about that birthday thing too.

Which is why Alice does what Alice does best: Follows Oz's example and slips out of the room while Cheshire is sleeping, then jumps out of the window and starts towards the bakery.]

Miss Rin-rings? I'm coming to see you. It's okay, because Raven's at the bakery so I'm just going to come see you. I've decided.

[In other words, she's not going to listen even if you say no.]
Nov. 8th, 2011 06:23 pm (UTC)
[That really just surprises Rin. She wasn't thinking about needing company, not right now and not consciously anyways, and from Alice... well. Alice is a strange little girl. Rin isn't sure where she stands with the kid, and well, she's got to admit that Alice feels a lot like responsibility to her.

It's rather heart-warming that she's decided to come over, though. Rin can't help but smile.]

... okay.

[Funny, Lenalee had just been thinking about that. She doesn't want to be redundant, but Rin seems as if she could use the conversation.]

I haven't been keeping track as well as I should have. It's impossible to be exact here, but I think that guessing is probably close enough.

If you're looking for a different place to stay, we have room.

[That is probably something that she should have checked with her housemates first on, but the offer spills out without having thought about it. Rin might be out of her house, and they have a spare room on her floor. It seems natural to offer it.]
Nov. 12th, 2011 07:42 pm (UTC)

...funny, he's never thought any of his own birthday, just his mother's. But he's... ah. Seventeen now, huh.]

I suppose I'd... go with how long it was to it when I came here. So I guess it passed now.
Nov. 12th, 2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
Birthdays are a popular topic nowadays, huh?

What would ya say if you were here for a long while, and then went home for a bit. Would you count the first time too?
Nov. 17th, 2011 11:54 pm (UTC)
[He feels pangs of sympathy, but...he never knew these two, so all he has to say is:] I'm sorry.

[The birthday question gets more of his attention--though, to be honest, he finds it a little confusing. Birthdays, yes, he knows what they are. But...]

Why would birthdays matter so much?
