Something Old, Something New

▼ Something Old, Something New (13th hour & arrival log)
 
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: The news two weeks
Summary: This is both a Newcomer log AND a General 13th hour log
Warnings: That depends who is there

▼ When it is darkest, men see the stars...(13th hour)
 
The night sky once again turned red as the 13th hour hit the city. By now it was almost too easy to accept it. The moon (or what was of it up there) shone, affecting the monster population in subtle ways.

By now, even the strange events which had happened almost seemed a little too common. The pulls from a new building, or the odd creatures that showed up and increased the population for that hour gave rise to new oppertunities; both good and bad.

To keep the population safe, the mayor had asked the city to stay inside that night and let the city police and visitors do their job, despite the dividing population on this issue. For the most part, there wouldn't be much resistance.

Each night, the sky was always filled with at least one or two signs of something new, and people were ushered inside buildings as much as possible.

Who knew. Maybe tonight you'd get lucky.

▼ Ode of the Newcomer
 
You're not in your homeworld anymore. That much is evident. So how do you feel? Happy? Sad? Troubled? A little of all three? No matter what, the memories of a butterfly man named Philemon are fading like a dream; you'll remember the details, but perhaps not everything he has said. What time you showed here seems to be as random as everything else; if you were lucky it was during the day, if not, well the 13th hour was rather dangerous. Fortunately, there was a high chance you'd be spotted quickly.

...hopefull anyway.

There is one word that stays with you, however.

Persona.

So...here to save the city, huh? First you'll need to find out more information. And who knows, maybe a familiar face or two...

▼ Extra Long OOC Blurb
 
[(Make sure you read it!) This is a dual log, both 13th hour, or newcomer posts (we're testing it out to see this works well or not.)

This will be up to you on what you want to do; start a new post where you can character's name and OPEN and write the days they'll be wandering during the 13th hour.

If you are a newcomer, write OPEN and what hour they arrived. It can be the 13th hour if you want too!

Join other people's post, do some exploration, post them fighting monsters and just have some fun leveling up / interacting! For this log, you can level up persona, but not in the same thread and the same day, IC-wise. Please do not abuse this. The conditions is that the fighting must happen on different days. The threads should be long enough that an attack is possible and shouldn't just be a few comments just for the sake of leveling up (Ie, we want effort in them, as much as you would with a normal log.).

If you submitted a building and it was accepted, feel free to start a post with them discovering it! The original owners who submitted will be the first to see them, due to a strange pull that made they feel like they NEEDED to go to that area. What they do with this information is up to them; they can contact others in their group, start exploring by themselves or allow the thread to be open for others to come in with them...it's all up to you. That next morning, the government will be coming over to analyze them (that will be done offscreen, however).

FOR THE CREATURES 1) The creatures have to be in the Beastary for you to use them. You don't need to use creatures from your own home worlds either, as long as someone's put in a creature in there! Also, make sure your characters could logically take on the creatures you pick let's not have them take down a giant creature when they couldn't normally.]


DON'T FORGET TO TAG WITH YOUR CHARACTER'S NAME PLEASE.

Masamune Date [AU] | Virgo Ward | OPEN | 3/6 - 13th Hour

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-08 04:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Most nights Masamune would either be studying for class or dealing with his training from hell with Otoha, but tonight?

Tonight was a night to cut loose. The tension in the air, even after the others had come and gone from wherever they were taken (he wasn't going to pry at this point, even with his own curiosity) - he felt the need to at least break it on a more personal level.

Which meant taking Senrima out for a ride.

Though he was still confused as to why he couldn't ride his Persona like he had during the Anoli attack, it still didn't stop him from fighting alongside his Persona, and his training was already starting to pay off - his strikes were clearer, more precise, and not just moves from kendo. It was strange - using Senrima, fighting like this - it felt right. It was a feeling that he was actually starting to become accustomed to. For a moment, he wondered what Kojuro would be thinking if he saw this, but that thought was quickly pushed out of his head as he sliced through a small, shadowy creature that had tried to sneak up on him and Senrima - and another two or three were right behind it.]


Well, at least we won't be bored.
bakegarasu: (when will i be rid of you?)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-08 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Speaking of Otoha, he was watching from above, Yatagarasu looming behind him threateningly. He grinned as he watched Masamune cut through some of the monsters, before jumping down to catch another who was trying to sneak up from behind him.]
recycleddestiny: (Everything always works out)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-08 05:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Masamune was about to whip around and strike at whoever had landed, eye wide -

Until he realized who it was, and without missing a beat, diverted the strike to another one of the monsters. Senrima also gave a small whinny, a bolt of lightning arcing from it to strike the same target.]


Was wondering when you were going to join the party!
bakegarasu: (driven by hate)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-08 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
Wouldn't miss it!

[He slashed through another monster, Yatagarasu raking it with its talons. His movements were a bit awkward, though - earning him another of the small creatures jumping on his back. He reached behind himself and grabbed it, throwing it on the ground.]
recycleddestiny: (I don't fold up and I don't bow)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-09 10:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[Which was then quickly stabbed by Masamune, and Senrima charged at a pair that were trying to get around both swordsmen.

At that, Masa's already back into a regular stance, and gets ready with another flurry of strikes. Maybe he could also check out some other ways to fight from Otoha, though apparently his instincts have been doing a fairly good job of fighting so far.]
bakegarasu: (fire in your heart)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-09 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[Otoha disappeared in a puff of slightly alcoholic-smelling smoke, and faster than a blink he was a good distance away, slashing through one of the monsters from behind and halfway through another one.]
recycleddestiny: (Never gonna be another one; no)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-11 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
That's a new one!

[Seriously, when the hell did he learn that. :T And did that make him a ninja -

okay no.

Masamune just shakes his head as he dual-strikes with Senrima, smacking one enemy with the flat side of his blade while his Persona reared back and came crashing back down on top of it with its front hooves.]
bakegarasu: (dream a little dream)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-11 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
A trick I learned from a friend!

[Also it totally does. He takes care of a few of the stragglers, before just resorting to standing back and letting his Persona mop some of them up.]

[He tightens his coat around himself, trying to keep himself awake. He's been operating on less sleep than usual, even for him.]
recycleddestiny: (Y'all go hard; I go smart)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-11 06:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Damn, gotta ramp it up next time.

[Though Masa's grinning once the last of the monsters has disappeared, patting Senrima on its muzzle. He's not surprised when it decides to stick around instead of retreating, though, and sheathes Kagehide, hand on his hip.]

Been a while since we had a decent fight like this, yeah?
bakegarasu: (brooding like a demon)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-11 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, pretty much.

[Yatagarasu doesn't quite perch on Otoha - it's too big for that - but it hovers near him protectively like a menacing shadow.]

I'm not sure I'm up for another spar tonight. Haven't been sleeping as much.

[Considering his usual sleep schedule is 'sleep all day, wake up at night' it's not that surprising. Besides, ever since that stupid tower it's been harder and harder for him to sleep well. It shows, with how his movements are slower and his posture is even worse than usual.]
recycleddestiny: (Feet sometimes on solid ground)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-17 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Anything you wanna talk about or...?

[He raises his eyebrows slightly, but doesn't make any move to shift forward, arms crossed.]
bakegarasu: (who's that rapping at my chamber door?)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-17 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[He shrugs. He's not really a touchy-feely person.]

Stupid stuff that the jackass we were hunting at that tower brought up. Family stuff mostly, so I don't really want to talk about it. It's a pain, though.
recycleddestiny: (Test my will; test my heart)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-19 09:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[Masamune blinks, surprised, but there's something familiar in that. He turns his head slightly and gives a bit of a sardonic smirk, not metting Otoha's gaze.]

I can understand that.

[More than he'd ever admit outright, but there you go.]
bakegarasu: (nothing wrong with me)

[personal profile] bakegarasu 2013-03-20 12:04 am (UTC)(link)
Ready for another round?

[Let's stop this touchy feely party before it gets started okay.]
recycleddestiny: (A perfect world on a perfect day)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-20 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[Agreed.]

Yeah, think so. Right? [The question's directed at Senrima, who snorts in response.]

Let's party.
manlyfop: (I bought a book of rules)

[personal profile] manlyfop 2013-03-08 02:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Bang goes a revolver, downing one of the other creatures in the area. Hope you don't mind someone stealing a kill, Masamune, because Raidou's just doing his job.

Raidou doesn't say a word, and just reloads his gun calmly while Kamo no Yasunori whirls about him like a wraith. Normally Raidou would be sticking to what he knows, and what he knows are demons. But this is a totally different world with completely different rules and here, Personas were important. It cant hurt to get some experience, right? Plus, he'd been fighting with demons for an extremely long time and perhaps using a Persona wasn't too different from that.]
recycleddestiny: (I don't care where the enemies are)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-11 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
[The sound of the gun going off does cause his eyes to widen slightly before noticing that it's someone with a Persona. Though what the hell was that getup.

Whatever, not really his concern - until he does a double-take and rushes forward like he's about to charge at Raidou, but he spins around him and slashes at another monster that was closing in on them. Senrima's circling around them at the moment, a stray lightning bolt or two zapping a couple creatures that don't dodge its charge.]
manlyfop: (Show me the way and I'll try again)

[personal profile] manlyfop 2013-03-11 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Though he doesn't flinch or make any moves during Masamune's own dramatic slaying, Raidou tips his hat in thanks, though says nothing to the other. It's not needed here, and really, it's not like Raidou to speak in battle unless he's giving out orders.

Though it seems like he doesn't even need to do that, what with Kamo no Yasunori seemingly knowing what he's thinking (wont surprise him if that's in fact the case).

So all he does is keep firing bullets at the enemies, letting Kamo no Yasunori handle the swordplay with Gale Slash.]
recycleddestiny: (So take a number; stand in line)

[personal profile] recycleddestiny 2013-03-17 07:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Not much of a talker, huh.

[Masamune just shrugs as he gets back into his stance, now running alongside Senrima to duck under a lightning bolt and slam into the nearest monster that attempted to get out of the way of the dual-charge.

This pretty much goes one for a while until he doesn't see any more of the monsters, sheathing Kagehide.]
