Arrival

Who: Sébastien and OPEN
Where: Leo ward
Summary: Sébastien arrives in Hinoto-Ri on a cold evening.
Warnings: None so far?
It was very disorienting. It was not the first time he had woken from a dream into another, and it was never not the strangest feeling.

For a dream, thought, the realism was astonishing. Surveying the destruction around him, he could feel the bite of the cold December day on his skin, feel the uncleared rubble and snow under his feet, smell the disinfectant and cleaner from the hospital he had found himself standing near every time the automatic doors opened with a squeak, watch people with oddly clear and detailed faces looking at him strangely.

More strangely, the dream didn't seem to move on. He was rooted in place and nothing moved, nothing blurred, the scenery did not change. Looking around, he spotted a police station across the street. As his dreamstate visits to the police never ended well, Sébastien decided not to go. He would have to do something sooner than later, however, because his fingers and ears were starting to turn bright red from the cold.

Here, have a girl all up in your business.

"Hello!"
unbroken_chain: (cheerful)

Have a little bow and a grin, then.

"Thank you, thank you - I drink milk. So! The system's marked you as a newbie!"

Her grin broadens as she removes her glasses with a flourish.

"Welcome to Hinoto-Ri!"

"Arrival, of course! Hold on, it's right in here..."

With that, she rummages around in her bag before drawing out a small pamphlet.

"Here you go, all the basics!"
unbroken_chain: (mischievous)

Kotoha, for her part, will just stand there and wait for him to finish.
unbroken_chain: (happy)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2013-12-15 07:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Kotoha grins a little wider.

"Nope! Any questions?"

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2013-12-15 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Pause.

"Well, I could give you an explanation, but..."

Here, she'll just reach over and pinch your shoulder. Not hard, mind, but firmly.
unbroken_chain: (laughing)

Kotoha smiles.

"Oh, well then. Watch this."

A blue playing card spirals down out of thin air, and Kotoha lightly reaches out and crushes it in her hand. And then, lit by a blue glow, appear countless spectral masks.

"Menreiki, the thousand masks of drama. A Persona I received from the Velvet Room."

Kotoha keeps smiling and unsummons Menreiki.

"You wanna head down to City Hall and finish getting registered?"

"Oh, I can take care of that. Ah, my name is Kotoha, by the way."

And with that, she tosses a small ball up in the air, which splits open and releases a giant moth. Heat shimmers off its six wings like a portable brazier.

"Ta-da! Toasty warm, right?"

"His name's Solar Logos."

She pauses to think.

"Is it anything like the Opéra de Kalos?"

"Yeah! It's basically the most prestigious ballet company in all of Europe!"

Jaunty pirouette just to illustrate.

"Someday I want to go there with Mom and Dad and see their performances."
unbroken_chain: (laughing)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2013-12-20 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"Don't think there's anywhere called Greece in Europe...oh! I know! I can speak a little Kalosian - I read a tourist phrasebook once - so maybe you'll be able to tell me what it reminds you of?"

A slight pause, one hand placed on her collarbone, one resting lightly on her moth.

"Excusez-moi, où est le centre de Pokemon?"
unbroken_chain: (mischievous)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2013-12-29 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, really?"

Kotoha is not laughing. Really, she's not.

"I think that's pretty normal, actually - a friend of mine mentioned that one of the regions in my world had the same name as someplace in her world. Not sure what causes it, though."
unbroken_chain: (laughing)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2013-12-29 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yeah, I know. Fun, though!"

Kotoha laughs merrily.

[A teenage girl in a mask and cape jumps down from a nearby fire escape, thinking that no one is around she starts performing karate moves on a make believe enemy. In the middle of one of her moves she notices that someone else is there and freezes.]

Um, hi. How long have you been watching?

I'm Misfit. I'm a superhero. I don't think I've seen you around, are you new here?
istotesbatgirl: (:))

[personal profile] istotesbatgirl 2013-12-20 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, welcome to Hinoto-Ri. Where do you come from originally?

[personal profile] istotesbatgirl 2013-12-22 08:41 pm (UTC)(link)
So you're a ballet dancer then? Or an opera singer? I'm sorry I don't speak French, those were the only two parts of that I got.
