burgers and explosions;

Who: Taro and OPEN
Where: Capricorn, in the Central Park
Summary: Taro may originally be Japanese but he's been in America long enough to consider himself American. Certain traditions should be followed.
Warnings: ... Not really.
Music: America Fuck Yeah [NSFW]


After making his network post, Taro goes back to cooking his burgers. It's hard to get it just right, but he's had plenty of time to practice and enough fast food jobs to know how to make sure it looks good. He's got a blanket spread out with cups and bowls for the soda and the chips respectively, and there's the sounds of Bon Jovi music if anyone gets close, despite there being no CD player.

Later in the night, Taro's got a lighter out and the fireworks ready. None of them are really big, but they're loud. Someone might find him either right before he lights one, or after - they're not exactly quiet and the explosions are probably audible from a long distance away.

Takakage manages to arrive around 4pm. He's dressed in his usual flowing clothing, with his book by his side and his sword belted to his waist. Totally doesn't look like someone who fainted for a whole week. Nope.

(Yes, he actually paid attention to his appearance this time.)

"Good afternoon, Taro." He gives the tanuki a smile. "I haven't had time to obtain any food yet, though. Do you need any help? I can cook, too, or look for other ingredients if you still need anything."

Ah. "Well... I'm vegetarian."

Pause.

"I... hope you have something of the sort? If not, I can always make more..."

(This was a bit awkward.)

"Ah, that will be fine, I think."

He goes over and takes a brief look at what Taro is cooking.

"... admittedly very different from what I am used to." It's not... very balanced, but he doesn't want to make Taro feel bad. Maybe he could make something that would compensate?

Takakage listens to Taro in silence. After the tanuki finished, it is a while before he speaks.

"...I see." It's hard to find something to say. He's read about America. It does indeed seem like a unique country, and very different from the Land of the Rising Sun. "Well, you've given us the chance to experience the culture of your homeland. It's a new perspective, at the least." And perhaps it brought some familiarity.

(Taro is homesick. Takakage hasn't been here long enough, but he can empathize.)

"Is there anyone else from America in Hinoto-Ri? This city is a nexus point for worlds, after all...

Half an hour after Takakage shows up, Kotoha swoops in riding on her giant moth. She pauses for a second to look him over before nodding once and heading over to Taro, drawing a pair of plastic containers out of her bag as she does.

"Hi! I figured I'd bring over some stuff - only polite - so here you go! The small one is a tahini dressing, the large one's a fruit salad."
unbroken_chain: (happy)

[personal profile] unbroken_chain 2014-07-05 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Kotoha grins.

"Yeah, I figured as much. But I can see the burger toppings, and those make a pretty good sandwich with the dressing, so I'll be fine."

She takes a second to give Solar Logos a hug, her arms practically disappearing into the Volcarona's white fluff, before recalling him and spinning back around to face Taro again.

"So! In other news, I understand there's gonna be fireworks later?"

"And if that doesn't work, I can have Tomoe flood the park!"

She's...probably joking?

[An ironic Fourth of July party with burgers and soda? Bro wouldn't miss that for the world. Bon Jovi's a nice touch too. Very retro ironic. As for his own contribution, he brought some hot dog sausages and buns. Hot dogs are super American too.

Once he's dropped the supplies off by the barbecue, he'll mingle. ...As far as mingling goes for Bro. Mostly, he'll stick near the snack blanket, chewing his burgers and hotdogs. At some point, he'll beatbox along with Bon Jovi.]

[Bro flashes a grin right back at him, hot dog still in hand.]

Naw, ol' Jon Bon is cool for now. Can't go wrong with that guy.
stridercentric: (How interesting~)

[personal profile] stridercentric 2014-07-09 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah? As a bona fide groupie or just an ironic fan?

[Hizumi arrives on the late side, still in the arcade uniform. However, he also brings a large box of donuts, the first of which he'll help himself to. He's the one who bought it, so he should get first pick, right?]

Heeeeh, a fourth of July picnic... Never really got to do one of these before.

[It's too bad, too. All that time spent in the US amounted to nothing anyway, so he really should have gone out to have fun more.

Well, better late than never?

[personal profile] bondsofsuffering 2014-07-08 05:22 pm (UTC)(link)
And getting free food? You bet!

[He's... certainly got his priorities set.]

Speaking of which...

I heard there were burgers?
